Bad news for Johnsons Landing The results of a study to determine the likelihood of further landslide activity in Johnsons Landing after the July 12, 2012 landslide were released by the the Regional District of Central Kootenay (RDCK) this week. A review of the landslide characteristics, local geology, and local weather conditions leading up to the event combined with the application of slope stabili-

ty analyses, modelling, and judgement led to the conclusions that record June rainfall and late snowmelt saturated the soils on the slope above the community and triggered the landslide. Also results indicate that a landslide of similar size has not occurred in this area since deglaciation (last 12,000 years). The results of the landslide assessments and risk analyses indicate that here

is potential for future landslides in the Gar Creek drainage. Some residents, users of the ArgentaJohnsons Landing and Houston Roads, users of the Community Hall, and users of the beach area are exposed to continued landslide and debris flow hazards.

Firefighters rescue a real dummy Nelson Fire Rescue Services conducted an extensive fire practice for all staff last week. Crews were up at the old Mt St Francis building, using a smoke machine in place of setting real fires. They ran drills such as rescuing/retrieving a training dummy from a simulated floor collapse, putting out

fires, searching for lost persons in a fire, and rescuing fellow members in a smoke filled room. A large focus of the drills was to give senior members of the department practice time in the role of incident commander (ie, the one in charge, giving the orders). submitted by Nelson Fire Rescue

Police News: theft and recovery, public warnings On Monday, May 27 a Nelson man found his mother’s house broken into and several valuable items stolen. The Nelson Police, with the assistance of the RCMP identification section began their investigation immediately. On Wednesday, May 29 Nelson Police members took a suspect into custody. A 37 year old male from the Balfour area is facing charges of Break and Enter and theft over $5000. All the victims’ property was recovered. Over the last several days there has been a rash of thefts

from autos and attempted car thefts in Nelson. The Nelson Police are reminding people to ensure their cars are locked and all valuables removed. Although some items might seem trivial to the owner, such as small change, they can be valuable to a would-be thief. The Nelson Police are looking for information about two specific thefts from vehicles where firearms and jewelry were stolen. If anyone has information about the thefts of these items please contact the Nelson Police at 354-3919 or Crimestoppers 1-800-222-

On Saturday, May 25, at 12:25 a.m. members of the Castlegar Crime Reduction Unit arrested a 47 year old male for Possession of Cocaine for the Purpose of Trafficking under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act. The male was stopped in his vehicle by Crime Reduction Unit members shortly after leaving a Castlegar residence. Approximately 2 grams of Cocaine and $440 in cash was seized during the suspect’s arrest. The male will appear in Castlegar court in July, 2013. On the evening of Saturday, May 25 Slocan Lake RCMP received a third party report of a possible drowning at Little Wilson Lake near Roseberry, BC. Police attended and spoke with two men from Trail

who had been camping with a third male from the Trail area. It was determined that the presumed drowning victim had been fishing with one of the males in a canoe on Little Wilson Lake. The canoe capsized and both men entered the water; one was able to swim to shore the other is presumed drowned. Neither were wearing a personal floatation device (PFD) at the time, nor was there a PFD or safety equipment in the canoe. Alcohol is also believed to have been a factor in this incident. The search for 32 year old Michael Lorne Guthrie, the Trail resident reported missing and presumed drowned at Little Wilson Lake, was suspended last evening May 27th. The RCMP underwater recovery team, RCMP helicopter and local Search and Resuce were unable to locate

People should be aware that if their dogs are reported and picked up by the Police or Bylaw they face a fine of $70, impoundment fees of $60 and $17/per day storage before they can get their family pet back home. Additional fines will be levied if the dog is unlicensed. Enforcement of these bylaws will be increased as the weather warms up and

people are allowing their pets to roam farther from home. Bear season has arrived in Nelson and people should be especially aware of leaving their garbage out. Several reports of black bears and possibly one grizzly have been received at the Nelson City Police over the last several days. If there is an immediate safety concern with these animal call the Nelson Police right away. If you spot one otherwise please call the RAPP line at 1-877-952-7277. submitted by the Nelson Police Department

Yuma bats in attic of local house

The Kootenay Community Bat Project is seeking volunteers for the Annual Bat Count. This citizen-science initiative encourages residents to count bats at known roost sites to provide valuable information on bat populations. “This event is a wonderful opportunity for residents who care about wildlife to be involved in collecting valuable information” says Juliet Craig, Coordinating Biologist for the Kootenay Community Bat Project. “They don’t need any special skills and kids can be involved.” The Annual Bat Count is being promoted by the Kootenay Community Bat Project (KCBP) in BC to collect baseline data on bat populations before the devastating White Nose Syndrome enters the province. “White Nose Syndrome is decimating bat populations in eastern North America” says Craig. “We are lucky that this disease is not yet in BC but it may just be a matter of time. Monitoring bat populations may indicate sudden declines associated with

White Nose Syndrome.” Residents wait outside a known roost site, such as a bat-house, barn, bridge or attic, and count bats as they fly out at twilight. They can video the emergence or use a hand tally counter to count the bats as they fly out. They record the final count along with some basic information on weather conditions. Two counts are done between June 1 and 21 before pups are born, and two more between July 21 and August 15 when pups are flying with their mothers. “We know relatively little about bats including basic information on population numbers” says Craig. “This information will be extremely valuable, particularly if it is collected annually. If people want to get involved but don’t have a roost site on their property, we do our best to match them to a roost site nearby.” Funded by the Columbia Basin Trust, the KCBP also provides support for landowners dealing with bat issues on their property. To download Annual Bat Count instructions and data forms, to register for the bat count, or to get assistance dealing with bat issues, visit www. kootenaybats.com under the ‘Get Involved’ link or call 1-855-9BC-BATS. submitted by the Kootenay Community Bat Project

Are there really more women than men in Nelson? dr. science Christine Humphries

I have frequently heard people commenting on the number of women compared to the number men in Nelson. I checked the data from the 2001 census on the Statistics Canada website and found that in 2001 there were 9,298 people living in Nelson, of which 47.4% were male and 52.6% female. The percentage of males and females for the entire population of British Columbia’s is 49.1% male and 50.9% female, confirming that

Nelson’s population is slightly more female-rich than average. The census data is broken down into ages, however, and showed that in the zero to four year range there were 250 boys and only 210 girls in 2001 (% male, % female). Worldwide, the sex ratio of births is 1.06 (the number of boys born divided by the numbers of girls born) because there are 106 boys born for every 100 girls born. A very kind maternity nurse at Kootenay Lake Hospital counted the birth log book and to give me an idea of the sex ratio in Nelson. She counted

420 births over a 16 month period from January 2005 to April 2006, with 226 baby boys (53.8%) and 194 baby girls (46.2%) giving a sex ratio of 1.16. So Nelson’s births seem to follow the worldwide trend of more boys than girls at birth. Therefore, the overall female rich population of Nelson is probably due to the other end of the age spectrum. Nelson is a retirement community and there are many more women than men in the “75-84 years” and the “85 and over” groups according to the 2001 census. This difference almost certainly reflects the dif-

ference in life expectancy between men (75 years) and women (81 years) in British Columbia. I hope you fill out your next census so that we can continue to obtain fascinating information from these population data! Editor’s note: Since this archive edition of Dr. Science was written, the results of the 2011 census were released. The results showed that while the population of Nelson increased to 10,230, the male to female ratio remains unchanged. The male population of 4855 still accounts for 47.4% and the female population of 5380 accounts for 52.6%.

Chalky-white deposits along concrete walls

Home Front

by Bill Lynch, Paul Muntak & Steve Cannon

There are several different kinds of white deposits found on foundation walls. Fortunately, they fall into two simple categories. The first class of deposits is mould. Some tenants and homeowners are horrified by the discovery of mould, even though there is often little reason to be alarmed. Some moulds present no health hazard whatsoever to humans. After all, moulds are a functional part of our ecosystem and as old as life

I just moved into a rental house. Now all the former tenant’s boxes are gone I can see patches of chalky, white powder along my concrete basement walls. Could it be mould? What should I do about it? itself on the planet. However, some moulds do present health risks to humans. The only sure way to determine the risk is to have a sample of the mould tested by a qualified laboratory. An air quality investigator will take samples of the mould as well as your indoor air and dust particles to determine if the moulds have spread to other locations throughout your home. Remediation is often a complex combination of factors the air quality inves-

tigator prescribes after analyzing your building and site conditions to determine all the measures required to ensure the moulds do not return after the completion of a thorough cleanup. The second possible type of deposit on your foundation walls is a harmless salty byproduct of a chemical reaction between water and the calcined limestone mixture in your concrete walls. The technical name for this powder is efflores-

cence. This white chalky substance indicates there is seasonal dampness from outside your basement walls wicking through the concrete to the interior surfaces you observe. Efflorescence is a sign that you should take measures to control water in the yard adjacent to the affected walls. Often a simple set of gutters, downspouts and downspout leaders will significantly help dry the interior surfaces of these basement walls.

Five stars for Cabaret Friday May 31, 8 and 11 p.m. and Saturday, June 1, 2 and 8 p.m. at the Capitol Theatre

Cast of the local production of Kander and Ebb’s musical Cabaret sing about money

photo by nelson becker

by Nelson Becker

I had the most fortunate opportunity on Wednesday night to see the dress rehearsal of Cabaret. This local production was beyond your typical Broadway musical. Cabaret is a story that takes place in Berlin Germany, a short time before World War II. It is at once about relationships and about the rise of Nazism and how those conflict with each-other. While Cabaret deals with an extremely serious subject, it is a romantic musical and even has comedic highlights. Part of it takes place in a rather raunchy bar where women and society’s conservatism is beginning to be replaced by outrageous and deviant behavior. Beware, this production is rated at least PG13, for suggestive content. I both cried out of sadness for the people that suffered during that time, as well as laughed at the satire of the play. Go see this production, if there are still tickets left! 250-352-6363

Picture the Ocean

Musical waves collide the shore of Nelson Rory on the town by Rory Case

It has been some time since a live performance actually gave me chills, and that is exactly what I experienced last Saturday while listening to Picture the Ocean. The trio played a powerful and moving set at Expressions, and left me with goose bumps. The lyrics were positive and captivating, transporting me to a tranquil place. The musical talents of each artist complimented each other in the most harmonious way. The true emotion and dedication was heard with every song. The range of upbeat to soft songs flowed nicely throughout the evening. It truly felt as

if I was by the ocean. A melody of crashing waves mixed with the sweet air, provoking my senses. I had not heard of Picture the Ocean before they came through Nelson, but I sure am glad I have seen and heard them now!

Opinion&Editorial Publisher’s note

A message for tourists: How to fit in when you come to Nelson

We can spot you 500 metres away and immediately know you’re not from this area. Kootenay-ites are a very friendly By Nelson Becker bunch, so we tend to say hello to everyone. After you’ve been here for a short period of time you will start to see people you know on Baker Street, and of course you will say hello to them. After you’ve been here awhile longer you will see people you don’t know but because you see them every day you will start to say hello anyways. After awhile longer, because you can’t remember whom you know and whom you don’t know, you will start to say hello to everyone.

My Opinion

Pretty soon ‘hello’ will turn into conversations on Baker Street. Interesting topics for Nelsonites are the weather, “If you don’t like the weather in Nelson wait 5 minutes.” Dogs on Baker, or the restriction of dogs on Baker is a topic we have not found an agreement to, between the City Council and the citizens. Other Topics include Albertans, fear of overdevelopment, and chickens and bees. Most locals are willing to discuss any topic of controversy, and all locals, no matter their politics, have a strong sense of community spirit. Locals donate freely to causes they believe in and work together, mostly. It used to be that we could tell a tourist by the camera bag around his or her neck, but many locals are photog-

Interpreting Interpretations Everyone has their own unique interpretation of… well anything. But what if someone’s interpretation isn’t something you can agree with? Let me be your interpreter to try and explain what I mean. Art and various social issues are often two sided affairs. Art can be considered beautiful or ugly but that generally is up to the viewer, it’s all about applying the critical eye. Social issues can be seen through a similar viewpoint, it’s all about viewing the pro’s

and cons and coming to a reasonable conclusion. Interpreting also comes into play when it comes to assigning meaning to a formal language, usually associated with computing and mathematics. Respecting viewpoints and reaching compromises, this is how we need to go about things. Logical and human factors play a key role in any interpretation and we should rely on these practices before we jump to any conclusions. Vague topic yes, but it’s up for interpretation.

Spencer Pollard is an young man living in Nelson BC with an interest in digital arts and writing. His ideas are of benefit to all of Nelson, and to stroke his abnormally large ego

raphers so it is not so easy to decipher anymore. If it’s 3 a.m. in the morning and the Baker Street sign says don’t walk, even though there are no vehicles around, many locals will wait for the light to change. Locals rarely wear ties and the women here rarely wear high heels. We have 50 restaurants here, yet many locals think we do not have enough. Many locals came from the city in effort to escape pollution, noise, and the rush. What they did not leave behind was their cultural interests and dreams to have live music on demand at any hour, which of course cannot be sustained. If you really want to fit in and get to know the locals, take a couple of them out for lunch. We come with all kinds of dietary persuasions.

How did you spend your evenings in the last month? tell us at

http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/your_evenings

Last week’s survey responses:

Do we in Canada still need a senate? 61.3% No

32.3% Reform 6.5% Yes Other: We should have an overview of what Parliament legislates, but with more transparency and lower costs. It is typical of Harper to make a service, institution or organization look bad then point out its need for reform. His reform. I think we are playing into his hands by abolishing it. It needs to be elected, with a time limit and the ability of Canadians to recall Senators who do not perform. All politicians need a job description by which they can be ‘ let go’ by. A waste of tax payers Money. It has lost it’s purpose and has become pork barreling and a JOKE.

Why or why not?

Waste of taxpayers money. The Senate once may have functioned to our advatage but now has been minipulated and abused especially by the current government. Unless the other parties speak up on how the Senate can be saved and what useful functions it will perform, it should be Abolished. Elected and non-partisan the Senate is an antiquated form of government that consists of overpaid stuffed shirts. Senators (and all politicians) need a pay cut while most low income earners should get a pay raise. There is a better way to spend 15 million tax payers dollars. Changing the system to have elected senators for a fixed term means senators will be publicly accountable and relatively quickly replaceable if necessary. Elected senators will no longer be political party appointees, giving the public better quality choice and a more objective senate, which is something we Canadians lack now. Sober second thought? Come on, if we must have a Senate, it should be elected by the people! In theory the idea of “sober second thought” is good but in reality it’s just another form of political favoritism. It would be better to have proportional representation an therefore have more ideas put forward and more concern for the ordinary Canadian rather than the rich.

I want to know what they do! I want to see regulations in regards to their attendance and engagement with community. I want to have them be accountable and to strengthen the rules about their tenure and that they can be gotten rid of if they do not do their job. I want to know projects that they are involved in that actually help improve our Canadian community. Get rid of the allowances and make it a reward to be appointed to the Senate for doing whichever party a lifetime worth of service. I like having two chambers I do not like the fact that they have a free for all and do very little and that they do not make themselves relevant to our society... this should be their priority really... The present Senate is composed of unelected bench-warmers. Senators should not be appointed by the prime minister of the day. Ineffective, inefficient, unnecessary... Patronage, cushy for life, very little use to Canadians. I say abolish it and achieve what little balance it provided by instituting proportional representation. waste of bodies and money, and no results, just more red tape for hard working small business people. 1. Should NOT be appointed 2. Should have a limit of years as Senator (4 max). 3. Should have proportional representation of parties.
