CKCA 20192020 funded projects

Over 150 arts and culture projects including the

Columbia Basin Culture Tour have received a total

of $750,000 in funding support for the 2019-2020 season

through the Columbia Kootenay Cultural Alliance

(CKCA), in partnership with Columbia Basin

Trust.

Columbia Kootenay Cultural Alliance Chair Laura

White commented, “Every year, I’m impressed by the

scope of the projects for which applicants are seeking

funding; there are artists taking their first steps

towards becoming professionals, to individuals seeking

support for major projects and everything in

between.

“The CKCA Steering Committee members are

excited to see the projects that receive funding successfully

bring their efforts to fruition. We are also

very pleased to continue our relationship with

Columbia Basin Trust, by fostering excellence in arts

and culture and contributing to livable communities

across the region.”

Funding applications were adjudicated in May by

the CKCA steering committee, with input from community

arts councils. Support will go toward a wide

range of projects, including individual and group

projects, master classes, touring and major exhibition

projects.

“In the Columbia Basin, artists use many different

mediums in their artistic endeavours,” said Michelle

d’Entremont, manager, delivery of benefits, Columbia

Basin Trust. “The Arts and Culture Program puts

more wind in the sails of artistic and cultural efforts,

supporting artists and organizations while adding

vibrancy to Basin communities.”

CKCA funding helps individuals and organizations

realize arts and cultural projects across all arts disciplines,

including visual art, theatre, music, dance,

media, literature and inter-arts. For a list of funded

projects, visit the CKCA website at www.basinculture.

com or call 1-877-505-7355.

Columbia Basin Trust supports efforts to deliver

social, economic and environmental benefits to the

residents of the Columbia Basin. To learn more about

Wildlife enhancement project

BC Hydro is constructing a wildlife enhancement

project in the drawdown zone of the Burton Flats.

Construction is scheduled to begin in early September,

pending all necessary permits.

This project is expected to benefit nesting and

migratory birds as well as other wildlife affected by

reservoir operations. This will be accomplished by

creating, protecting or enhancing habitat for Western

Toad, nesting and migratory birds, amphibians and

other wildlife.

Project background:

Two sites were originally being considered for this

project Burton Flats and Lower Inonoaklin. Burton

Flats is located south of Nakusp, on the east side of

the Arrow Lakes Reservoir and the Lower Inonoaklin

site is located south of the Fauquier ferry on the west

side of the reservoir. We decided to pursue the Burton

Flats site because of a greater potential for benefits to

wildlife. At this time, we have decided not to go ahead

with the Lower Inonoaklin site, but may revisit this at

a later date.

Current status and next steps:

Construction will take place in two phases. If conditions

are suitable and we receive the necessary permits,

we expect work on Phase One to begin at the

beginning of September and be completed by the end

of October:

Starting on Tuesday, September 3 crews will start

mobilizing on site to construct the first phase of the

project. During this time, crews will be on site from 7

am to 7 pm, Monday through Saturday and from 8 am

to 7 pm on Sundays. We anticipate that this work will

be completed by late October.

Crews will also be on site during the second week

of September to salvage some sedges that are located in

the construction zone. These sedges will be replanted

during the planting phase of the project.

Support for wildlife:

We have undertaken and are continuing to implement

pre-construction monitoring at these sites

and will continue to monitor post-construction

at the Burton site. We are also currently conducting

numerous studies under the Columbia River

Water Use Plan to better understand the impacts of

our Arrow Lakes Reservoir operations on a number

of non-power values including vegetation, fish,

wildlife, recreation and archaeology and help future

decision making.

Open burning prohibitions

amended in the southeast

Effective as of noon (Pacific time) on Tuesday, September

10, 2019, Category 2 and Category 3 open burning

prohibitions within the Southeast Fire Centre’s jurisdiction

will be amended, due to a decreased wildfire risk.

A map of the affected areas is available online at www.

ow.ly/2KIq30pvst3

Category 2 Open Burn Permits: One or two concurrently

burning piles, no larger than two metres high by

three metres wide; and the burning of stubble or grass

over an area less than 0.2 hectares. The use of fireworks,

burn barrels, burn cages, sky lanterns and exploding

binary targets will also be allowed.

Category 3 Open Burning will be permitted throughout

the Arrow, Kootenay Lake and Columbia fire zones

within the Southeast Fire Centre’s jurisdiction.

However, a Category 3 open burning prohibition will

remain in effect for the Boundary, Invermere and Cranbrook

fire zones, where the following activities are still

prohibited:

• Any fire larger than two metres high by three

metres wide

• Three or more concurrently burning piles no larger

than two metres high by three metres wide

• The burning of stubble or grass over an area greater

than 0.2 hectares

• The burning of one or more windrows

Open Burning Precautions: Anyone planning to conduct

a Category 2 or Category 3 open burn in the Southeast

Fire Centre (where permitted) must do the following:

• Check the local venting index (see website link

below). The venting index must be “good” on the

day the fire is lit and “good” or “fair” for the following

day.

• Follow the Open Burning Smoke Control Regulation.

• Use safe burning practices: Create a fireguard

around the planned fire site by clearing away twigs,

grass, leaves and other combustible material; never

leave a fire unattended; make sure that the fire is

fully extinguished and the ashes are cold to the

touch before leaving the area for any length of time.

• Anyone planning to conduct a Category 3 burn

must obtain a burn registration number ahead

of time (at no charge) by calling 1-888-797-1717.

Burn registration numbers are entered in the Open

Fire Tracking System, which allows the BC Wildfire

Service to track open burning activity throughout

BC.

• Check with local authorities (e.g. fire department,

municipality or regional district) for any local

restrictions or regulations.

Anyone found in contravention of an open burning

prohibition may be issued a ticket for $1,150, required

to pay an administrative penalty of up to $10,000 or, if

convicted in court, fined up to $100,000 and/or sentenced

to one year in jail. If the contravention causes or contributes

to a wildfire, the person responsible may be ordered

to pay all firefighting and associated costs, as well as the

value of resources damaged or destroyed by the wildfire.

The Southeast Fire Centre encompasses the area extending

from the United States border in the south to Mica

Dam in the north and from the Okanagan Highlands and

Monashee Mountains in the west to the BC Alberta border

in the east. The Southeast Fire Centre includes the Selkirk

and Rocky Mountain natural resource districts.

To report a wildfire, unattended campfire or open burning

violation, call 1-800-663-5555 toll-free or *5555 on a

cellphone. For the latest information on current wildfire

activity, burning restrictions, road closures and air quality

advisories, go to www.bcwildfire.ca

Venting index information is available by calling 1 -888-

281-2992 or visiting www.env.gov.bc.ca/epd/epdpa/venting/

West Nile virus risk increases

The mosquito species likely to carry West Nile virus is

most active in August. West Nile virus is a disease that is

spread from infected corvid birds (crows, ravens, magpies

and jays) to humans through mosquito bites. It was first

detected in BC in the South Okanagan during the summer

of 2009. Since then there have been five human cases

all locally acquired in the Okanagan. Last year the virus

was detected in birds and a horse in the East Kootenay

area, confirming the virus is present there as well. Several

parts of Canada and the US continue to report ongoing

West Nile virus activity.

The risk of infection from handling birds is very low;

however, you should not use your bare hands to handle

wild birds (dead or alive). If you need to move a dead bird,

precautions should be taken. Unusual clusters of dead

birds can be reported to the BC Interagency Wild Bird

Mortality Investigation at 1-866-431-BIRD (2473).

Mosquitoes can also transmit West Nile virus to horses

and occasionally to other animals. Horse owners are

advised to contact their veterinarians for information

about equine vaccines for West Nile virus.

The risk of becoming seriously ill from West Nile virus

infection is low for most people; however, the elderly and

those with compromised immune systems are more at risk.

There are things everyone can do both at home and while

travelling to reduce the risk of infection. Any activity that

prevents mosquitoes from biting or breeding can help to

reduce the risk of becoming infected with West Nile virus.

Prevent mosquito breeding around your home. It

doesn’t take much time or water for mosquitoes to develop

from eggs into adults. Anything that can hold water

can be a mosquito breeding area. Identify and remove

potential breeding areas on your property empty saucers

under flowerpots; change water in bird baths twice

a week; unclog rain gutters; drain tarps, tires and other

debris where rain water may collect; and, install a pump in

ornamental ponds or stock them with fish. Stagnant backyard

pools can be a big source of mosquitoes and should

be maintained regularly to prevent mosquito growth.

Install screens on windows. Screens will help prevent

mosquitoes from coming indoors.

Avoid outdoor activities at dusk and dawn. This is the

time of day the mosquitoes that can carry the virus are

most active.

Wear protective clothing. If you are in an area with

lots of mosquitoes, wear loose fitting, light coloured, fulllength

pants and a long-sleeved shirt.

Use mosquito repellent. Apply mosquito repellent to

areas of exposed skin. Check the product label for instructions

on proper use. Repellents containing DEET are safe

for those over six months of age when used according to

the directions on the label. DEET-free products are available,

but may not provide long-lasting protection. View

the HealthLinkBC file on DEET (www.healthlinkbc.ca/

healthfiles/hfile96.stm) for guidelines on how frequently

to apply repellent.

Interior Health works closely with the BC Centre for

Disease Control and Canadian Blood Services to monitor

West Nile virus activity. Surveillance includes screening the

blood supply and reporting human as well as animal cases.

SAR’s busiest month on record!

The Kootenay based Search and Rescue team, based in

one of the busiest adventure regions in the province, has

recorded its busiest month ever.

According to Stefan Lettrari, the organization’s president,

the recent purchase of a vehicle and the structuring

of specialist teams made the job a little easier.

“We have a very strong team in Kaslo with a diverse

set of skills and a group of very capable leaders,” said

Lettrari, adding, “All our available assets were used on

multiple occasions with multiple teams on different

calls. The fact that we have a cohesive team allows us

to deploy to different locations competently. The fact

that we have a supportive community and government

also ensures that we have the tools to do the job that

the public expects,” For now and through the fall, the

organization is regrouping and focusing on training for

what is likely to be another busy season through the

winter months.

The group has the ability to respond to still and swift

water incidents with the 501 Marine response unit on the

lake, mountain rescue incidents with 502 and motor vehicle

incidents and high angle rescues with unit 501. Additionally

the boat crews are capable of dealing with marine

environmental spills on inland lakes and waterways.

While all the members of the team are multi-disciplined

to some extent, specialist teams are forming to be able to

respond too specific incidents in the mountains, on swift

water or for long line access with a helicopter to stabilize

and recover subjects from challenging environments as

quickly as possible.

If you are interested in joining Kaslo Search and Rescue,

you can message them at their Facebook page or call 250-

859-4893. In October, the organization will run a new

Ground Search and Rescue Training program that is the

initial certification required to join the team. For information

contact: mirhorses@gmail.com

The team would like to remind you that weather conditions

in the fall can change rapidly, particularly at higher

elevations, so whether you are driving, hiking, climbing

or boating, make sure you stay up to date on weather forecasts

and watch for indications of approaching systems

that can change rapidly.

Film offers conversation on

community spaces and homelessness

On a bitterly cold night a large group of homeless men

decide they’re not going to leave the public library at closing

time. It hasn’t happened but it could.

That scenario is the subject of The Public a new film

written by and starring Emelio Estevez. The Nelson Public

Library and Nelson at its Best have joined forces to screen

the film on Tuesday, October 1 at 7 pm at the Nelson Civic

Theatre. Following the movie will be a panel discussion on

the topic of public libraries, homelessness and safe spaces.

In The Public, what begins as a nonviolent sit-in as

shelter from the elements soon escalates into a standoff

with police led by a crisis negotiator (Alec Baldwin) and

a savvy district attorney (Christian Slater) who has his

own agenda. In the middle are two librarians, played by

Emilio Estevez and Jena Malone. The film puts a face to

people living on the margins of society.

Panel moderator George Chandler of Nelson at its Best

sees the screening as a unique opportunity to consider

and discuss an important topic. “A strong value of this

film is that it reflects ongoing daily realities in the word,

including our community. It also populates big issues of

homelessness, isolation and poverty with humanity

everyone has their own story and we are invited to see

them as human beings, no matter what appearances or

our own viewpoints might initially tell us.”

Panelists include Cheryl Dowden from Ankors, Chief

Constable Paul Burkart of the Nelson City Police, Tracey

Therrien, Chief Librarian for the Nelson Public Library

and Jeremy Kelly from Nelson Street Outreach, who has

also experienced homelessness.

“The Nelson Library is many things in our community:

educational resource, literacy champion, social hub and

a safe place for those who need it,” says Tracey Therrien.

“Our library users come from every walk of life; this is a

very relevant conversation for us and for the community.”

Admission is by donation.

Instructor Ross White (middle) and first-year students show off the

haul rope samples provided by industry leader Fatzer.

Ski program receives classroom tools

Future leaders in the outdoor recreation industry

attending Selkirk College’s Ski Resort Operations

& Management (SROAM) program have received

a learning boost from the world’s leading haul rope

manufacturer.

Headquartered in Switzerland, Fatzer specializes in

steel wire rope innovation and production for a variety

of industries from mining and fishing to road bridges and

ski lifts. This summer, the company sent a steel box full of

haul rope samples that is now being used to help learners

at Selkirk College.

“It’s important to have this kind of support from the

industry,” says SROAM instructor Ross White. “Our

students will graduate into an environment that is everchanging

and to have global leading companies like

Fatzer providing these classroom tools helps tremendously.”

White is a local ski industry veteran who has

been teaching at Selkirk College since 2006. The former

manager of outdoor operations at Whitewater Ski

Resort, White mentors students in a variety of different

facets including teaching the Ski Lift Maintenance

course.

Prior to the Fatzer donation of leading edge haul rope

technology, White was using sections of the former Summit

Chair at Whitewater that was not current with what

graduating students will see at today’s resorts. “Our learners

need to see physical objects to be able to relate to what

we are teaching,” says White, who is also a Red Seal millwright.

“Visual aids and teaching tools help get the message

home and students get it a lot quicker.”

The Selkirk College SROAM program is heading into its

40th year of providing the education, skills and training

required for graduates to succeed in all aspects of the ski

industry from snowmaking and terrain park operations

to guest services and marketing to ski patrol and general

management. It is now the only program of its kind in

Canada and draws students from around the world who

come to study on Selkirk College’s Tenth Street Campus

in Nelson.

The program receives ongoing support from the industry

in a variety of ways including an advisory board that

meets with faculty and students on an annual basis.

Alumni from the program can be found in key positions

across Canada and the world. Learn more about the Ski

Resort Operations & Management program at www.selkirk.ca/ski

Help keep finances safe online

While digital navigation has become an essential skill,

it also comes with its own set of dangers. From online

banking and mobile apps, to online shopping and credit

and debit cards, it’s important that you take precautions to

keep your personal and financial information safe.

Whether you’re looking to beef up your own security

or teach your kids cyber awareness, here are some simple

strategies for creating strong passwords:

Get Creative. While each login will have different password

requirements that you must adhere to, it’s a best

practice to include numbers, symbols, capital and lowercase

letters. And think of out-of-the-box ways to incorporate

these. Avoid the use of full words and anything that

relates to your personal information, such as names and

birthdates.

Differentiate. Using different credentials for every login

is a great way to help keep your information and yourself

secure. To help with remembering numerous passwords,

track them as soon as you create a new account in

a secure password keeper.

Go Beyond The Bare Minimum. There is often a minimum

requirement of eight characters for passwords.

Try surpassing this with 12 or more characters to create

another layer of complexity.

Share Smart. All of these password creation tips

are especially important when using mobile or online

banking, which is a great way to manage finances. Remind

older children to never give out any personal banking

information to anyone, even if they claim to be a banking

representative. It is a good idea to have record of your

teen’s passwords and online banking information. Be a

safety net in case there’s trouble.

Would your acreage

benefit from soil amendment?

Mercer Celgar is looking for landowners with 2 or more acres

within 55 km of Castlegar that would benefit from using their

Celgrow soil amendment. Pastures and hay fields are good options.

Mercer Celgar will cover the costs of a qualified professional performing

soil sampling, obtaining government authorization and

delivery costs of Celgrow soil amendment based on access with a

large truck/pup combination. Acreage should be able to accommodate

at least 6 truck/pup loads. The two major components of

Celgrow are individual wood fibres lost from the pulping process

and surplus bacteria from the wastewater biological treatment

facility. Wood fibres enhance soil moisture retention and bacteria

are a good source of soil nutrients. The landowner is responsible

for spreading and incorporating Celgrow into their soil.

Principal’s Message

Thank you to the Pennywise, once again, for their fall

feature for our schools. To get on our weekly email list

of events for JVH, please email me at drude@sd8.bc.ca

or visit JVH’s Facebook pages at www.facebook.com/

jvh.sd8.bc.ca. You’ll see the many incredible learning

experiences that our children and youth have the opportunity

to be involved in.

I’m proud to present our team of dedicated educators

and support staff and proud of the work we do each

day in our schools.

2019 - 2020 School Calendar

Our work is challenging, complicated, engaging and

rewarding. Personally, my aims in education are to help

develop:

• opportunity for students, staff, and community;

• involvement in learning;

• effort that leads to success; and

• appreciation for what we have and who supports

each of us.

Dan Rude

Rest In Peace, Blue

(1951-2019)

Melanie ‘Blue’ Vershave peacefully passed away

in my arms at a time of her own choosing on

September 17th in Kaslo BC. Blue is now at

rest after a brave fight with cancer. Blue is survived

by her son Stephane, cousin Steve Brock

and myself, her husband Murray.

Blue loved animals and growing flowers, while

her infectious smile and occasional ‘Blueisms’

always brought joy to those lucky enough to be

around her.

Blue and I both want to thank all those who

offered loving support during her life and

in helping Blue leave her mortal body with

the grace and dignity of the lady she is while

knowing she is not alone.

There will be a reception to celebrate Blue’s life

at a later date. Thank you all for your caring.

Until we meet again Blue…. I’ve got your six.

With love, Murray

Perry

Bauer ©

A long time Kootenay

resident, passed away

on September 11, 2019,

in the midst of dear

family members. He

lived life with warmth,

humour, and of course a

bit of the cantankerous.

He will be remembered for his gum boots,

suspenders and copious ear hair, among other

wonderful things.

A good way to honour Perry is to make up your own

joke and share it at an appropriate or inappropriate

time, or for those of a more quiet disposition, find

a wonderful rock and rub it with good feeling for

another and then share it with them.

In lieu of any formalities, his family would be

touched if you shared something you grew in your

garden with someone you love or someone

who needs it, as he often did.

will benefit conservation in the rural areas around Kootenay Lake,

The purpose of the Fund is to provide local financial support for

important projects that will contribute to the conservation of our

valuable natural areas. Kootenay Lake Local Conservation Fund

(KLLCF) funding is available for conservation projects that result in the

reduction to a known threat to biodiversity. The themes for the Fund

are water conservation, wildlife and habitat conservation, and aquatic

systems conservation.

Projects that are technically sound and effective, and provide value

for money through partnerships with other funders will be given

priority. Proponents must be a registered not-for-profit organization,

First Nations band or local government. Unqualified groups or

organizations may partner with a qualified organization.

A Technical Review Committee will review project proposals and

make recommendations to the RDCK for final funding approval.

To apply for funding, go to www.kootenayconservation.ca/kllcf

Review the Terms of Reference, paying particular attention to Section

8 Fund Design and then apply using the application form provided.

The closing date for project submissions is

Project proposals must be delivered by email to

info@kootenayconservation.ca.

Simba

Simba is a beautiful 4-month-old short haired classic orange tabby male kitten,

who came to us very recently as a single stray. He was super shy and

scared; at the first sight of people, he would give this squeaky cry and hiss.

Yet after being touched, he would bunt you with his head for more. Now this

Lion King is quick to purr, rolls over for belly rubs, and is starting to shine! He

is a very handsome long-legged noble character. If you are patient and gentle,

this kitten will certainly come out of his shell for you! Come meet Simba!

to trim your trees, especially those close to the house,

garage or shed.

Clear old plants and weeds from your garden bed or

pots to make it easier for spring planting and keep insects

at bay. If not using winterized pots, bring them indoors.

Clear leaves from the lawn, aerate and consider a fall

fertilizing.

Decks and garden furniture will need a good cleaning

and, if appropriate, staining. Don’t forget to properly store

cushions and outdoor tablecloths so that they can be used

again next season. Garden tools also need a good cleaning

or wipe down before storing for the winter.

Moving Inside: Plan and prepare before you start. Make

sure you have reusable boxes and bags on hand and create

some storage space indoors or out. If outside, make sure

the space is sheltered. Organize room by room. When

swapping out seasonal clothes in your closet, take some

time to make sure you still need or use each item. If not,

recycle or donate it.

Keep in mind that you can donate unwanted clothing,

textiles and small household items, such as small garden

tools, instead of throwing them out. Charitable organizations

are always looking for donations.

Test Internet connectivity

performance!

Residents in the Columbia Basin and Boundary regions

are being urged to try out a new online testing portal

which is designed to measure Internet connection speeds.

“The Regional Broadband Committee has been working

to get a better understanding of current broadband services

and to advocate for high-speed Internet for residents

and businesses within the Columbia Basin and Boundary

regions,” explains Regional Broadband Committee Chair

Rob Gay. “This online portal will provide us with specific

data and give us a much clearer picture of the true state of

our current connectivity.”

Residents can access the testing portal and run the performance

test as many times as they would like and the

Committee is hoping to see strong participation. “The

more data we collect, the greater our understanding will

be. We are hoping to see people from every geographic

corner of the region participate,” says Gay.

The data will not only be helpful in providing the Committee

with valuable data, it will also help to prioritize

areas of need and be useful in determining eligibility for

federal and provincial connectivity granting programs.

Although there has been some work done to identify the

state of connectivity in rural regions such as ours, to date

there is a shortage of accurate and quantifiable data. “This

performance test will help us close that data gap and we

strongly encourage residents to log in at least once,” adds

Gay.

The online portal can be accessed at https://performance.cira.ca/columbiabasin

Participants provide their

location and hit start. The test takes less than two minutes

to run.

The Regional Broadband Committee was established in

2014 and includes elected officials from Columbia Shuswap

Regional District, Ktunaxa Nation Council, Regional

District of Central Kootenay, Regional District of East

Kootenay, Regional District of Kootenay Boundary and

Village of Valemount.
