Fish and wildlife projects selected for funding

As the Fish and Wildlife Compensation Program (FWCP) in the Columbia region starts implementing its new delivery model, it has announced project funding for 2013-2014 of more than $5 million. The annual funding is provided to compensate for fish and wildlife affected by the creation of BC Hydro owned and operated generation facilities. The FWCPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s core projects in the Columbia region will include the operation of Meadow Creek and Hill Creek kokanee spawning channels, supporting the white sturgeon recovery initiative in the Columbia River, and adding nutrients to Kootenay Lake and Arrow Lakes Reservoir. For wildlife, the priorities for its core projects include purchasing conservation properties, slashing and thinning

to increase forage for ungulates, ecosystem assessment of potential restoration sites and monitoring of previous restoration activities, supporting western toads at Summit Lake, and large mammal monitoring and species inventory that will help guide future wildlife management decisions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In addition to our core projects, the board increased the funding for external projects by more than $100,000 over last year,â&#x20AC;? said FWCPColumbia program manager Trevor Oussoren. These external projects seek to help a selection of species-at-risk including the wolverine, grizzly bear, western painted turtle, and the Lewisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; woodpecker as well as a number of other species.. submitted by the Fish and Wildlife Compensation Program

City of Nelson workers ratify new contract Local CUPE members agree to five percent wage increase over next three years; contract within City Council’s inflationary targets up to 2015. The deal, reached this past Monday evening by reps from CUPE Local 339 and City administration, will last

until December 31, 2015. The last contract expired January 1 of this year. Negotiations on the latest deal started in April. The 80 CUPE workers — 70 of them full time, 10 of them casual — will see a two per cent wage increase beginning mid-year for 2013, 2014

and 2015. That will result in an overall increase of 5.1 per cent over the life of the contract. The City is still negotiating with its IBEW staff, after the last contract expired at the end of 2011. The contract with Nelson Library workers is up

for renegotiation, as are deals for Nelson Fire and Rescue members and Nelson City Police. The Fire Department’s contract expired at the end of 2011. The police contract expired at the end of 2012. submitted by the City of Nelson

Selkirk College works for transfer of fine arts credits Selkirk’s School of the Arts recently hosted the annual BC Council on Admission and Transfers (BCCAT) Visual Arts and Design Articulation Committee Meeting. Committee members from across the province came together to discuss course curriculum and transfer credits for arts pro-

grams that will allow students to put their college credits towards a university degree. As a member of the BCCAT Visual Arts and Design Articulation Committee, Selkirk’s School of the Arts is working with universities to develop curriculum that will match

other institution’s bachelor’s degree requirements. Block transfers are also desirable for students so they can transfer many of their credits to a university. “The possibility of having more Selkirk arts courses in the BC transfer System is really exciting,” said Chair of the School of the

Nelson Mayor John Dooley has been re-elected to the nation-wide organization’s board, as chair of the building community since 1988 BC Caucus, for a second year at last week’s Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) Annual Conference and Tradeshow, held in Vancouver. In his role as chair, Mayor Dooley will represent 181 BC local governments, including villages, cities and regional

districts. The mayor says there are many reasons to fully participate in the FCM, but few as financially vital as the Federal Gas Tax initiative. Between 2008 and 2011, the City of Nelson received $1.6M in funding from the initiative.

Pet Insurance Pets - Purely Natural

By: Dr. Andrew Jones

Veterinary medicine and surgery has advance dramatically in the last 10 years. Specialty care for diseases such as cancer can easily cost the pet owner in excess of $5000. There now advanced diagnostics such as MRI, and referral surgeries such as kidney transplant; once fatal conditions are now treatable, but cost to you the pet owner can run into the thousands. Fortunately, your pet will likely never need any of these advanced treatments. I’m of the opinion, that most people are better off putting money aside into a savings account; in most cases you are financially better off not having pet insurance. As opposed to spending $50 a month on pet insurance, put away $50 a month into a savings account. In 1 year you would have saved $600 for emergency veterinary

care. Pet insurance deductibles vary from $100 to $250 per visit, so for your average veterinary visit, you wouldn’t be claiming insurance. Pet insurance is not always the answer; as with other types of insurance, often when you need it the most you are unable to get it. There are many things to consider such as the monthly cost, the deductible, the exclusions, the surcharges, the payout limits, and penalties for filing more claims. Monthly costs vary from 30 to over 100 dollars per month. All insurance companies have deductibles which typically average $250- meaning you need to spend more than this amount to get any money back. Most companies have exclusions on pre-existing conditions and hereditary conditions; for instance if you insured your German Shepherd puppy who was diagnosed at 9 months with dysplasia you would likely not be covered by the insurance company. Most companies have a payout limit over the life of your pet, with limits per year; a large

surgery will only be partially covered. The monthly premium will often increase as your pet gets older or as you file claims (which of course was your reason for having insurance in the first place). In order to gauge whether or not you need pet insurance, you need to be asking yourself 2 big questions. How much would you be willing to spend if your dog or cat had a serious illness? Would you be able to pay all of those expenses yourself? If you would be willing to spend thousands of dollars in your pet, but you are unable to pay for it all yourself, then you are a candidate for pet insurance. In my veterinary practice I dealt with many pet insurance companies, the one which I felt provided the best value for pet owners was Trupanion. Ultimately what you really want is to be avoid using pet insurance in the first place. This means keeping your dog or cat healthy in preventing more common diseases. Feed your pet a quality canned and dry food,

along with some food you make at home. Only give the minimal number of vaccines as infrequently as possible, and avoid the excessive use of conventional medication. If possible use natural options with minimal side effects. Give your pet regular exercise and attention, including examining your pet weekly at home. It ultimately comes back to you being an involved and empowered pet owner by advocating for your dog or cat’s health- with or without insurance. You should now see why veterinary fees are increasing and more pet owners are looking at pet insurance as an option. There are serious issues with many insurance companies, so before you purchase any pet insurance you need to be aware of the monthly cost, the deductible, the exclusions, the surcharges, the payout limits, and penalties for filing more claims. Lastly you should be able to follow some basic steps to keeping your pet healthy in preventing disease at home, avoiding pet insurance in the first place.

Pistol packing mama gives up gun The Nelson Police Department would like to thank 91 year-old Malendar Williams for being the first person to turn in an unwanted weapon to NPD during BC Gun Amnesty month that started June 1, 2013 and ends on June 30, 2013. The unwanted weapon that was recovered is a 1916 .32 caliber Iver Johnson revolver. Ms. Williams advised police that she received the gun in 1962 from a family friend with a request to store it in order to keep it away from the familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s young children.

The family friend found the gun in the rafters of a basement in a home near the CPR yards. The unloaded gun has been neatly wrapped in a cloth towel in Ms. Williams sewing room for over 50 years. The Nelson Police are hoping that this act may encourage other persons to do the same. The amnesty gives people a safe way to dispose of weapons and related equipment and ammunition which they are not legally entitled to own, or which they no longer want. Call 250-354-3919 for more information.

The Nelson Police Department responded to over seventy five calls during the period of June 7-10. On Friday, June 7 at approximately 5 p.m., a local liquor store reported a theft by a known suspect. The male, who had concealed a bottle of liquor, was apprehended soon after. A 28 year old male has been issued a court date to face theft charges. An hour after the theft, the same liquor store reported a fraud. A 19 year old female was apprehended and was issued a court date to face fraud charges. Friday and Saturday night were very busy for calls to service relating to bars and noisy parties. At 12:25 a.m., Saturday, June 8, staff at a bar observed a motor vehicle accident. A vehicle had struck the corner of a building in the 300 block of Ward Street and the driver continued on. A police member was nearby and able to stop the vehicle before it departed the area.

The driver failed a roadside screening test and was issued a 90 day driving prohibition. Police also responded to several disturbances and fights soon after bar closing. Two males were arrested for being intoxicated in a public place. This year is continuing to be extremely busy in relation to bear related calls. On Sunday, June 9, a bear was observed in the area around the south side of the Nelson Bridge. This bear was described as young and unhealthy looking and had been spotted on numerous occasions. On Monday, June 10, a bear was observed at Rosemont School however was not located by police. On Tuesday June 4, a 38 year old resident of the Balfour area Paul Lâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Heureux, pled guilty to Break & Enter and Possession of Stolen property in relation to a B&E reported the last week of May in Nelson. NPD patrol units, GIS and the RCMP identifi-

cation section worked together to identify, locate and arrest the suspect. The man was first arrested May 29 after attempting to pawn several of the stolen items at a local pawn shop. The use of forensic evidence and a lengthy interview with the suspect yielded the remaining stolen property and linked him to the original B&E. He remained in custody in Nelson until his court appearance June 4 and will now will serve his time at a regional correction center in BC. A suspect for the recent rash of theft from, and

attempted theft of automobiles in Nelson has been identified. Again, working with the RCMP identification section, forensic evidence has linked a 34 year old Calgary man to at least one of the offences. A warrant for his arrest is being sought in one of these cases. The investigation is ongoing and it is believed he has fled the area. If anyone has information that would assist the Nelson Police please call 250354-3919 or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS. submitted by the Nelson Police Department

will join the conversation claiming to be the distant relative’s “lawyer”, at that point, the “lawyer” will provide his/her name and provide instructions as to how to send the money via an electronic money transfer and that you will be re-imbursed the money in days to follow once the relative is out of jail. As part of the instructions, you are told to call a telephone number to advise them once you have sent the money. Lastly, the “lawyer”

will be insistent that you do not tell anyone(especially Police) about the incident, the request, and the sending of the money. Nelson RCMP want to remind the public not to act on ANY request or to share ANY personal information with person(s) and or business(es) who have not provided you with the sufficient documentation to satisfy their identity and credibility. To report a fraud, con-

tact your local Police and the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre. The Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre can be contacted toll free at 1-888495-8501, e-mail at info@ antifraudcentre.ca.

Heat Recovery Ventilators

Home Front

by Bill Lynch, Paul Muntak & Steve Cannon

I’m a big fan of heat recovery ventilators (HRV’s) for the same reason you mention. These units not only improve your indoor air quality; they reduce indoor humidity and re-claim heat from the hot exhausted air before dumping it outdoors. Here are a few maintenance tips that will help keep your HRV running trouble free. Before performing any maintenance be sure to turn off the HRV and unplug it. Take 10 minutes every two or three months to clean

We just purchased and moved into a home with a heat recovery ventilator system. I notice a vast improvement in the air quality in the house when we have it turned on, but the former owners didn’t leave us any service manuals so we don’t know if it requires periodic maintenance and/or servicing. or replace the air filters. Older HRV’s have replaceable filters available at your local building supply store. Newer models are often equipped with reusable filters that can be removed, vacuumed and washed with soap and water before re-installing. Go outside and locate the intake and exhaust hoods located on one of the walls of your home. Make sure both duct hoods are clean and free of debris so air can move into and out of the system unrestricted. During the winter

months ensure that these duct hoods do not get blocked with ice and snow. Check the condensate drain located at the bottom of the HRV unit. Flush it with warm water to ensure that it is not blocked. This tubing is collecting condensed indoor humidity and delivering the water to a floor drain or laundry tub. Once a year remove the grilles at the end of each distribution duct and vacuum inside the ducts. Also remove the dust and debris that has

built up around the fan blades inside the HRV unit. You may be able to order a service manual from the manufacturer that will provide you with advise on lubricating fan motors (required on some older models) and methods for cleaning the HRV core. Also consider having a certified HRV technician complete an annual tune-up on the mechanical and electrical components. To locate a technician look for air conditioning service companies in the phone book.

What causes freckles? dr. science Christine Humphries

Freckles are small (13mm) pale brown spots most commonly present on sun-exposed areas of the body such as the nose, cheeks, shoulders and upper back. Freckles appear in early childhood, around two years of age, usually in individuals with fair-skin and light-blond or red hair. Freckles have both genetic (an inherited trait) and environmental (sun exposure) causes. In

an earlier Dr. Science column, I described the role of the MC1R gene in the inheritance of red hair. It turns out that this gene also plays a role in freckling. MC1R is highly polymorphic, meaning that its DNA sequence varies between individuals. People who have variants of MC1R with unusual DNA sequences often have fair skin, red hair, an elevated risk of skin cancer and freckles. In one study, changes in the MC1R DNA sequence were identified (by DNA sequencing) in

60% of people with freckles. The degree of freckling was also positively related to the number of variants of the MC1R gene. These results strongly support the idea that MC1R is the major gene controlling freckles. How exactly MC1R contributes to freckling is not yet completely understood. Activation of MC1R in response to sunlight occurs in melanocytes, a type of skin cell. MC1R activation stimulates changes to the amounts of eumelanin (black/brown pigment) and phaeomelanin

(red/yellow pigment) in the skin cells. In non-freckled individuals, melanocytes are evenly distributed and sun exposure results in an even distribution of eumelanin (i.e. a nice tan). Freckles might occur if the sequence changes in the MC1R gene alters its ability to make these pigments such that only patches of melanocytes produce a dark pigment. One thing is sure, with Nelsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recent rainy weather, not too many of us will be sporting freckles this summer!

Connecting to Connected

Bus brings documentary to Nelson

Rory on the town by Rory Case

Last Friday, June 7 Get on the Doc Bus rolled through town, in pursuit of networking documentary filmmakers and lovers. Mandy Leith, driver of the Doc Bus, screened the documentary film Connected, which definitely correlated with some of my own personal views on technology, science, and the future. In Tiffany Shlain’s award winning film “Connected,” she uses humor, science, animation, and

documented footage to tell her personal story of what it means to be connected in the 21st century. So what does that mean exactly? We as humans have come to be the most advanced species and we often think of ourselves as independent from the rest of the world. However, that is not the case. Everything we do has an effect on something else in the universe. Our technologies have become so vast that it is not hard to know exactly what is happening on the other side of the planet instantaneously. We now,

more than ever, have such a great influence on not only the people and things around us, but also the world as a whole. For so long the human race has declared independence, but Tiffany believes it’s time for us to declare interdependence. To move forward into the future it is important for us to remember that we are all interconnected. If you missed the screening of the film last Friday, at Expressions, I encourage you to watch the documentary or read about it online at www. connectedthefilm.com.

Opinion&Editorial Publisher’s note My father, the man who influenced me greatest in my life, not By Nelson Becker was my birth father, but he was my father nonetheless. From him I learned critical thinking. I became interested, both in the sciences and in the arts. My father was a man with an immensely giving heart and a sense of family responsibility. He is now passed away, but his voice remains loud and clear.

Father’s Day When I think about my father, I feel young and immature because he was so wise and caring. Sometimes, for various reasons, we may have found ourselves unable to talk to each other, but that didn’t matter. I could still read his thoughts and aspirations for me. I still find I measure my success by his values, which sometimes presents a conflict with my own set of standards. However, it has the effect of slowing me down so I can make better life decisions. Thank you Dad.
