Get out and vote We asked: What differentiates you from the rest of the candidates? Sjeng Derkx, Green

Greg Garbula, Liberal

Michelle Mungall, NDP

I’ve made my living with my hands, as a cabinet maker. I have the callouses to prove it. I learnt the value of hard work and commitment from running my own business, but also from long time community involvement. I successfully worked to secure our rail properties, as a local radio show host and to improve our voting system. I was never paid a penny for that. I did it because I cared, and I still care.People recognize me as a tenacious, hard worker; I don’t give up easily. I have cooperated with men and women of all ages, races and political stripes, because that is the way to achieve positive results. I am not a career politician. This is not about me. But as your MLA, your interests will always come before party politics, and I will put my heart and soul into getting our local economy moving again.

I believe I have the experience and personality to be able to understand and convey the issues that concern the mixture of people within the region. I have 30 years of experience in the hospitality business and have had to ensure the wellbeing and satisfaction of over 1000 people at a time, not including managing staff of over 200. Not all needs and experiences are similar, it’s important to reach the individual cases that fall through the cracks within the system. Already, I have been presented with a number of circumstances where people and businesses need support; these people are frustrated / angry that they are not able to find help with their problems, sometimes complex, sometimes quite simple. They feel their issues are overridden by special interest groups or political pretentiousness, of which does not consider the well being of the very people that they were elected to represent.

I am passionate about our region and love serving our communities. With seven years experience, I have learned a lot as an elected representative. Every year, I work with hundreds of groups and individuals from communities all over the region. Not only has this allowed me to gain a deep understanding of our region’s priorities, but it drives me to ensure that our interests are heard in government. As the youngest woman in the Legislature, I’ve stood out as a strong voice for our region, social justice and environmental sustainability.

Fiona Morgan Brown, Abraham Fominoff, and David Brideson were sworn in as the 2013 graduates of the Nelson Police Reserve Program on Wednesday night, alongside Chief Constable Wayne Holland

Last Wednesday evening, for the first time, The Nelson Police Department held an awards ceremony to recognize not only their own members, but also other courageous and caring citizens of the community. The evening was meaningful and at times emotional; saying goodbye to a retired NPD member, bringing in new ones, and remembering all the

hard work they have done and will continue to do. Chief Constable Wayne Holland was the master of ceremonies and he kept everyone interested with stories of dedication and good deeds. It was a great opportunity for the NPD and other departments of the city of Nelson to thank each other and extend their gratitude to the civilians that really make a difference.

Police News: keep your alcohol and your food sealed The Nelson Police had a busy weekend with 44 calls to service. The majority of these occurred Saturday night. Good spring weather and local events drew people out and with that also came those that needed to drink to have a good time. The Royal reopened to host an all age’s no liquor party Saturday night. Unfortunately, many people felt they needed to drink en route to and outside of the event. Nelson Police Members were busy with numerous cases of drinking in public, carrying open liquor and minors in possession of liquor throughout the evening. With excessive drinking came the littering of cans and broken bottles in the streets and alleys. One male was caught

urinating in shrubbery beside the roadway. Tickets were issued in each case where appropriate and the Nelson Police hope this will serve as a deterrent for those that want to take their drinking to the streets. Fines range from $115 for public intoxication, $230 for consuming or carrying open liquor, to $500 for trying to re-enter a bar after being asked to leave. One person that seemed to have benefitted from the evening was a local bottle picker. She managed to gather two full blue recycling bags of cans and bottles around the 300 Block Baker St in a short time. Police were called to the Rosemont area two nights in a row for a report of a large black bear that

has been visiting a tree in a residential backyard. The Nelson Police would like to remind the public to seal and store their household garbage appropriately. Under the City of Nelson Waste Management and Wildlife Attractant Bylaw 3198, Wildlife Attractant means any substance that could be reasonably expected to attract wildlife including but not limited to food products, garbage, pet food, seed, restaurant grease, game meat, or glass or metal wear or any other item having contained food. Contravention of this bylaw could net a homeowner a fine not exceeding $2000.00 dollars. Further information can be found on the City of Nelson Bylaw website or by calling Nelson Bylaw at

250-354-3919. As a background, the following is an excerpt from the Bear Aware, B.C. Ministry of Environment Website: From 2004 – 2009 Conservation Officers in British Columbia had to kill, on average, 538 black bears and 37 grizzlies each year because of real or perceived threats to human safety. Most of these bears come into conflict with people because they are allowed to access non-natural food sources. Nelson Police Officers were dispatched to over 20 bear incidents in 2012. If you come across a bear in the City of Nelson, please contact the Nelson Police or the Conservation Officer at 1-877-952-7277 submitted by the Nelson Police Department

We were surprised to hear of the large volume of liquor that was apparently consumed outside last Saturday night. It has come to our attention that an adult was bootlegging liquor and supplying the children on the streets of Nelson during our event last Saturday, which explains the large number of empties collected. We think prevention efforts need to occur at the

point of sale. We are taking the following measures to do our part in reducing the quantum of underage drinking and littering in our beautiful city of Nelson: - attendees and their bags will continue to be thoroughly checked by our security. Anyone caught trying to sneak liquor into our venue will be reported to the police, have their photograph taken

and be banned for life from The Royal - we will ensure that any drinking or littering that we observe in our immediate vicinity will likewise be reported to the police - we will cooperate with police efforts to identify and apprehend the bootlegger(s) and any intermediaries - we are implementing a mandatory $2 re-entry fee for

anyone wanting to leave the venue during a show and come back in. This will remain in effect until we obtain a liquor license for the premises. This will only apply to individuals attending live music shows and not to people having a meal at our restaurant outside of concert hours. Sincerely, Luke J. Menkes The Royal on Baker

On Friday, May 3 at approx 1238 p.m. the Trail RCMP and West Kootenay Traffic Services attended a Motor vehicle crash on Highway 3B, Warfield Hill, Warfield. Investigation has revealed that a Commercial

Baseboard heating and air ventilation Home Front

by Bill Lynch, Paul Muntak & Steve Cannon

One of the down sides to electric baseboard heat is the lack of air circulation throughout the house. As well as the drawbacks you mention, the lack of air circulation within the building envelope and the lack of fresh air introduction from outside often causes mould and mildew on windowsills

I have a 10-year-old home heated by electric baseboard. Because of the baseboard heat, there is no ducting in the house. Are there any good options to add energy efficient forced air ventilation without resorting to ripping apart walls and adding ducting? and wall surfaces. There are a couple of ways to get air moving in a building, but ducts are hard to avoid. Here are a few ideas. If you live in a two-storey house with a basement, there is always a “stack effect” or hot rising air pushing through the highest

ceiling in your home. You can capture this heat at the top of the highest ceiling by installing an extraction fan. Then pump the captured heat back down to the basement or a lower floor through one or two small ducts. Or, consider a combination of short feeder ducts from this fan to interior wall

stud cavities that you have prepared by cutting out the bottom and top plates. This strategy recycles hot air that would be lost through the attic and roof, and it creates airflow throughout the interior building envelope. See next week’s column for more solutions to this problem.

Red wine and headaches

dr. science Christine Humphries

Some people experience pounding headaches after drinking even a small glass of red wine. These people suffer from a syndrome called the Red Wine Headache (RWH). The cause of RWH is largely unknown. Three theories on the causes of RWH were discussed in a paper published in the Harvard Health Letters in 2002. Many people blame

sulfites naturally present in, or added to, red wine (as a preservative) for their headaches. The FDA estimates that 1% of the population suffers from a sensitivity to sulfites and, as such, wine labels must show whether sulfites are added to warn people with allergies. A sulfite allergy is not the same as a RWH. A true allergy to sulfites causes wheaziness, not a headache. Tannins have also been suspected of causing a RWH. Red wine is made from the entire grape, including the skin, which contains tannins.

Tannins cause the release of a neurotransmitter, serotonin, and high levels of serotonin cause headaches. However, tea, soy and chocolate are also high in tannin and few people complain of headaches after ingesting these foods. Histamines, another constituent of the grape skin, may cause RWH by triggering an allergic response in people who are deficient in an enzyme called diamine oxidase which normally degrades the histamine. A combination of alcohol and the enzyme deficiency may cause a headache. This

Friday, May 10, 2013

Page 8

cause is disputed in a study by Dr. Kanny and colleagues (2001) which failed to show a correlation between wine intolerance and levels of histamines in the wine. So the debate rages on… According to Dr. Freitag at the Diamond Headache Clinic in Chicago, a good way to prevent a RWH is to drink only ½ glass of red wine and then wait 15 minutes. If no reaction occurs, then it is probably safe to drink that red wine. However, don’t drink too much or you’ll be suffering from a different kind of headache: a hangover!

Essential First Aid: CPR Pets - Purely Natural

By: Dr. Andrew Jones

Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation is the most important first aid technique that every pet owner should be comfortable with. Chances are that you will never have to use it, but it will save your pet’s life if a ball is lodged in his airway. There are some very basic steps: STEP 1: RESPONSIVENESS The first step is making sure that your pet is truly unresponsive. 1.CHECK his breathing by placing your hand in front of his mouth and nose. 2.CHECK for his heartbeat by placing your ear against the left side of his chest – this is the area where his left elbow touches his chest,

immediately behind his left armpit. STEP 2: AIRWAY The second step in CPR is obtaining a patent airway. 1.PULL the tongue out of your pet’s mouth, but be careful to not get bitten. 2.STRAIGHTEN the neck by moving the head to be in line with the neck. Do not hyperextend in case of trauma. 3.PERFORM two rescue breaths, by closing the mouth and performing mouth to nose ventilations. IF they continue, then proceed to STEP 3, BREATHING. If there are no breaths, then look into the mouth. 4.VISIBLY inspect the mouth and look down the throat for a foreign body. If you see something, reach into the airway and remove it. 5.IF the airway is still not open, attempt HEIMLICH (shown in following steps).

6.TURN your pet upside down, with back against your chest. 7.WITH both arms, give sharp thrusts to the abdomen. 8.AFTER 5 thrusts, stop and check to see if the object is visible in the airway. If so remove it and give 2 mouth-to-nose rescue breaths. If the breaths do not go in, repeat HEIMLICH. STEP 3: BREATHING After achieving a patent airway, perform RESCUE BREATHING. 1.CLOSE your pet’s mouth and breathe directly into his nose until his chest expands. If the chest does not expand then go back to STEP 2 – AIRWAY. 2.VENTILATE at 15 breaths per minute. One BREATH every 4 seconds. 3.PROCEED to STEP 4 – CIRCULATION STEP 4: CIRCULATION 1.ENSURE there are no major

points of bleeding. Control as necessary. 2.GENTLY lay your pet on his right side. 3.LOCATE the heart, which is found on the lower half of the chest on the left side, behind the elbow of the front left leg. Place one hand below the heart to support the chest; place the other hand over the heart. 4.COMPRESS the chest 15 times followed by 2 rescue breaths. 3 compressions every 2 seconds. Compress the chest 1/2 inch for small pets and 1 1/2 inches for large pets. 5.EVERY 15 times follow up with 2 rescue breaths. Continue heart massage compressions and the rescue breathing until you hear a heartbeat and feel regular breathing. Once your pet is breathing and his heart is beating, call your veterinarian immediately.

Picture the Ocean is a trio comprised of Jesse Dee, Jacquie B, and Matt Blackie who write and record alternative-pop, mid-tempo classic rock tunes that appeal to a wide range of listeners. The Canadian-natives are on tour right now and will be stopping by Expressions in Nelson to tantalize the senses. Picture the Ocean is everything you want it to be and everything you never knew could be. It’s an instruction to put your thoughts somewhere else. It’s subjective. It’s different for everybody. No one pictures it quite the same. It can be as serene as calm water, and as turbulent as a winter storm. Picture the Ocean conjures the entire spectrum, and embodies the same distinction. Highly visual, highly emotional, and incredibly passionate. Tickets for the show are $15 and can be purchased at 554 Ward St, Nelson, or reserved by calling 250354-3910.

performer Lucas Myers, find another opportunity to bring his second amazing one person performance to the Nelson audience. Ross, originally from Nelson, has been touring the world with thousands of performances in hundreds of cities, across four continents: from off Broadway NYC to the Sydney Opera House, or the West End of London to the sands of Dubai . The

worldwide love affair with these Trilogies is phenomenal and it’s been a dream come true for Charlie Ross to celebrate that love with the generations of fans around the world and now back in his home town of Nelson. Tickets are $16 and available by calling 250-352-6363 or online at capitoltheatre.bc.ca or at the box office. submitted by Pilotcopilot Theatre

Local literary magazine turns sixteen years old Friday, May 17 at 7:30 p.m., at Nelson’s Oxygen Art Centre A Sweet Sixteen birthday party is an important milestone for any young person, and even more so for a print literary magazine in these days of electronic publishing. In celebration, eight regional authors will read as part of the Sweet Sixteen birthday celebration for the Queen City’s New Orphic Review. The event

is free (donation appreciated) and open to the public. “I enjoy a great range of writing, and I hope the New Orphic Review reflects this,” said editor Ernest Hekkanen, a novelist and poet who has authored 45 books. Over the years, fiction contributions to the magazine have been selected for inclusion in Canada’s prestigious

Journey Prize Anthology and the Best American Mystery Stories anthology. The magazine’s sixteenth issue, compiled by Hekkanen and associate editor Margrith Schraner, a prize-winning short story writer and memoirist, will be on sale at the birthday bash. Joining the editors will be eight West Kootenay con-

tributors to the New Orphic Review who will give brief readings: Jane Byers, Linda Crosfield, Susan Andrews Grace, Sandra Hartline, Linda Hunter (reading on behalf of her late husband, Michael Woligroski), Art Joyce, Ross Klatte, and Tom Wayman. submitted by Oxygen Art Centre

Opinion&Editorial Publisher’s note I t ’ s M o t h e r ’s Day, quick go out and buy some chocolates By Nelson Becker and fake perfume! Growing up I never did understand the significance of Mother’s Day, in fact it was quite painful in trying to figure out how to participate in the ritual. My father and I would take my Mom out for Mother’s Day breakfast and I would buy some perfume that I never did like the smell of anyway. Even to this day I can smell that perfume and it disgusts me.

Mother’s Day There is value in acknowledging your mother. We should treat everyday as Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Children’s Day, Birthdays and Christmas as happening all year long. We tend to forget and take for granted those most important to us. We are the good people we are because of our parents. So on this Mother’s Day forget the lousy chocolates and the smelly perfume and take the time to write a letter to your mother letting her know that you don’t take her for granted and that you like your self and she is responsible for that.

My Opinion

Temporary jobs can open doors Jobs in Canada are going in favour of those of a temporary basis. Full-time or long term jobs still exist but temporary jobs are on the rise, giving many people even more opportunities to further their careers. How is this beneficial and how does this benefit you? Temporary work gives many people jobs, granted

it’s temporary jobs, but in this rough economy, many of us take what we can get. Temporary jobs can often be a gateway into full-time jobs and eventual careers. Some examples of temporary work can be nursing or ground maintenance workers. These opportunities give those who are needing work, the chance to shine. Work is hard to come by and many of us need

our chance to do our part as human beings. Opportunities for work are shrinking every day resulting in fewer jobs and more people out of work. Temporary work may not be a permanent solution but it gives you the opportunity to explore more career options and the chance to do something you truly love.

Summer festival season is upon us and Nelson doesn’t have its own festival, unlike neighbouring towns of Kaslo and Salmo. So what kind of festival would you like to see here, if any, and why? When and where should it be held? tell us at http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/nelsonsfestival

Last week’s survey responses: Are you optimistic about your future financial situation? 30% Very Concerned

20% little Concerned

10% No

40% Yes

0% Don’t think about it

If our country continues spending (importing) more then it sells (exports), a deficit will continue to grow. We need jobs to be kept in Canada for all who want a job at a half decent wage. This way our furture financial situation will be in a better position. The Country that has lots of extra products (especially needed items) to Export will be the one who’s future finances will be in good shape. The world demographics will never pay the debts and we are barely sustainable at that. No population growth, no economic growth, while debts keep piling up. Jobs are hard to come by in the Kootenays Savings and inheritance

I have job security, a job that pays well. I feel that because I am willing to work hard and keep my spending under control, a little bit of debt is not too dangerous. I have learned to live within my means and I budget. I am not driven by Retail Therapy to feel good about myself or the world. I live comfortably within one pension and in a few more months I will have two more pensions start, which will allow me to be able to extend a helping hand to charitable NGO...Feel very blessed. Why? . . . ‘cause I live simply, not a consumer, don’t need all the latest toys, pay off my credit card every month and I’m retired! Hope springs eternal...
