Would your acreage benefit from soil amendment?
Mercer Celgar is looking for landowners with 2 or more acres within 55 km
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.

and lighting of The Bailey. Attendees

Columbia Basin Trust provided $97.3
million for programs, initiatives and
capital investments to positively impact
the communities and people of the
Basin, as released in its 2019/20 Annual

and broadband infrastructure,
along with $9.2 million in business

Continued efficient and reliable operations
of its jointly owned hydroelectric
facilities in the West Kootenay along
with investments in real estate and
business loans, saw revenues increase
to $85.4 million, helping the Trust continue
to address the 13 priorities set
out in the Columbia Basin Management
Plan. These priorities guide the
Trust’s efforts to support communities
and were advanced in 2019/20 through
2,157 projects along with the introduction
of new programs and initiatives.
“Working with partners and communities,
we’ve kept moving forward
on the things that the people in the
Basin have told us matters to them
including affordable housing, childcare
and the environment,” said Johnny Strilaeff,
Columbia Basin Trust President
and CEO. “We are grateful for their
vision, support and collaboration over
the last 25 years and are deeply appreciative
of how we have been able to
grow and evolve as we worked together
to serve the people and communities in
“Now, as we continue to adapt to the
public health challenges of COVID-19,
we are looking ahead and asking residents
what’s most important to them
over the next 18 to 24 months, what
matters most to their family, what matters
most in their community, and how
can we work together to address those
The Trust is working on finalizing
a short-term strategic plan to determine
its focus over the next 18 to 24
months. Residents had until September
11 to provide their feedback. The new
plan is expected to be released later in
“The past six months have been difficult
for communities and residents, but
it has also shown how strong and resilient
we are as a region,” said Strilaeff. “As
an organization, there have been valuable
learnings for our staff and Board
about how we work with communities
in ways that are most meaningful for
them. We are looking forward to hearing
from residents and incorporating
their feedback to develop a short-term
plan that is relevant and purposeful as
we continue to navigate a challenging
and evolving situation together.”

RDCK wins a
The Regional District of Central Kootenay
(RDCK) is pleased to announce it has been
selected as a winner of a 2020 Sustainable
Communities Award for exceptional work in
the Visionary Award category for Accelerate
Kootenays. The award honours and celebrates
the most innovative environmental initiatives
in cities and communities across Canada.
In collaboration with the Regional District
of East Kootenay (RDEK), the Regional
District of Kootenay Boundary (RDKB)
and Columbia Basin Trust, the Accelerate
Kootenays Project was the first community
driven collaborative strategy to build a clean
transportation network by installing public
charging infrastructure for electric vehicles
(EV) throughout the region within communities.
It was coordinated over three years, at
the cost of $1.89 million, and involved multiple
partners with varying expertise to transform
a rural region into one that facilitates
The project successfully demonstrated
how regional governments and organizations
can collaborate to deploy a charging network
through strategic partnerships: to locate station
siting and regional appropriate technology
and outreach. It effectively increased

for local businesses, contributed to reducing
greenhouse gases in the transportation sector,
and has been recognized provincially,
nationally and internationally.
The RDCK is one of the 11 winners (local
government or municipality) from across
the country chosen by the Federation of
Canadian Municipalitites (FCM) for their
outstanding efforts in one of nine categories:
asset management, brownfields, climate
change, energy, neighbourhoods, transportation,
waste, water and a new category in honour
of Green Municipal Fund (GMF’s) 20th
Winners will each deliver a live, TED-talkstyle
presentation on their projects at FCM’s
virtual Sustainable Communities Conference
– held on October 20-22, 2020. Recipients in
each category are also eligible for the Inspire
Award, given to the most creative and innovative
project following the conference.
“Local solutions—scaled up—deliver
major national impact, like economic
growth and the emission reductions Canada
needs to meet its climate change goals,”
said Bill Karsten, President of the Federation
of Canadian Municipalities. “Whether it is
through improved energy efficiency, fewer
greenhouse gas emissions or stronger local
infrastructure, local governments get the job
done efficiently and cost-effectively because

they connect solutions to local needs and
local realities. This year’s FCM Sustainable
Communities Award winners embody those
principles of sustainability and collaboration.
Moreover, they exemplify how municipal
innovation can have concrete impacts and
deliver for Canadians.”
“It was a pleasure to work on this project
which presented tangible results and set
the path for our region to continue working
towards reducing our greenhouse gas
emissions within the transportation sector.
I would like to recognize Megan Lohmann
from Community Energy Association for her
leadership in guiding the project delivery,”
said Sangita Sudan, RDCK General Manager
of Development and Community Sustainability
Services. “The Accelerate Kootenays
Project also demonstrated that together we
can go far to achieve regional scale innovation
through strategic partnerships, collaboration
and continue to seek opportunities to
develop legacy projects.”

It goes without saying that 2020 has been a
year like no other in memory, but the toads
don’t know that. Their migration across the
highway from Summit Lake near Nakusp to
their forest wintering grounds went on as
scheduled. What did not go on as scheduled
was the in-person Toadfest , the annual event
to help the toadlets get across the road safely.
In light of restrictions on large gatherings,
the Fish & Wildlife Compensation Program
hosted two online Toadfest events in 2020.
The events were recorded and you can
check them out at https://fwcp.ca/toadfest.

Face coverings required in all
RDCK recreation facilities
The Regional District of Central Kootenay (RDCK) is beginning
to safely re-open our recreation facilities for programs with
limited or reduced activities to accommodate the guidelines
and recommendation of local health authorities. Beginning
September 14, 2020, non-medical masks or face coverings will
be required when entering and moving through all common
areas of indoor recreation facilities, except when exercising or
performing physical activity. Wearing a mask combined with
other important preventative measures, such as frequent hand
washing and physical distancing, will help prevent the spread
of COVID-19. Using only a mask is not enough to prevent the
spread of COVID-19.
Exemptions – Face masks are not required when:
• A medical professional has advised that wearing a mask
may pose a health risk to or impair an individual
• Wearing a mask would create a health or safety risk to
the wearer as determined by federal, provincial or local
regulators or Occupational Health and Safety (OHS)
• An individual is physically unable to put on or take off the
mask without assistance
• An individual has trouble breathing or cannot remove the
mask without help
• An individual is deaf or hard of hearing and relies on
facial and mouth movements to receive communication
• An individual is a baby or toddler under two years of age
• Place your mask so that it completely covers your mouth
• Put on your mask properly using the tie loops or elastic
bands that secure behind your head
• Wear your mask snug around your face and adjust it as
necessary throughout the day
• When taking off our mask and putting it down, place
it with the outside down on a tissue; if a tissue is not
available, clean the surface on which you placed it down
• Wash your hands and face after removing the mask and
before touching your face
• Keep your mask clean and launder it once a day in warm
• Store your mask in a clean and dry space or properly
dispose of it
Please do not:
• Wear your mask under your nose and mouth
• Let a strap dangle down or cross the straps
• Touch or adjust your face mask without cleaning your
hands before and after
• Wear your mask on your head or around your neck or
• Let your mask obstruct your vision
• Lay your mask on a surface that could be contaminated or
contaminate the surface
• Use a mask if it is damaged in any way
Recreation and park services are reviewed regularly as new
information and protocols become available. The RDCK
appreciates the patience of all our users as we implement new
expanded services with COVID-19 policies and procedures in

When I Go Away
Early in the morning
A-when the church bells toll
The choir’s gonna sing
And the hearse will roll
On down to the graveyard
Where it’s cold and gray
And then the sun’s gonna shine
Through the shadows
When I go away
Don’t want no sorrow
For this old orphan boy
I don’t want no crying
Only tears of joy
I’m gonna see my mother
Gonna see my father
And I’ll be bound for glory
In the morning
When I go away
Please follow covid protocols at all venues.
I’ll be lifted up to the clouds
On the wings of an angel
There’s only flesh and bones
In the ground
Where my troubles will stay
See that storm over yonder
It’s gonna rain all day
But then the sun’s gonna shine
Through the shadows
When I go away...

Luna (Lu Lu, Miss Lu) came in as a pregnant momma and now that
her kittens are being adopted it’s her time to shine. She has the most
beautiful long all-black coat and big gorgeous yellow eyes. She
has come around amazingly and now loves pets but she does not
do well with other cats. She is a very strong willed female, that’s for
sure. Loves to talk to you while you do menial tasks like cleaning her
litter, feeding her and even sweeping. Loves to play with the broom
bristles! Might do better with older kids or little ones who will respect
her space until she got comfortable in her new home. If you have
room for this beautiful momma cat then fill out an application and
let’s get Luna to her forever home.

Oxygen conducted a student survey
earlier in June to find out how people
were feeling (with COVID in mind) in
regards to participating in arts education
this fall. The response was very positive
and clear – students want to be creative!
Oxygen then got to work with their talented
team of instructors and volunteers
to re-vision how the educational offerings
could be delivered in an innovative
and safe way.
“Oxygen will be offering seven
online courses and three small in-person
courses this fall,” says Education
Coordinator Natasha Smith. “Many of
our instructors have specifically created
classes that can be taught online,

utilizing the many tools that we now
have available to make this learning
experience rewarding, interactive and
convenient for our students. Another
benefit of online programming is that
we are removing the barrier of travel for
students that live outside of Nelson,” says
The three in-person classes include,
Resurrecting the Lost Art of Letter Writing
with Rayya Liebich, Eco-Printing on Textiles
with Seathra Bell, and Painting on
Another Level with Natasha Smith. The
class sizes will be limited to a maximum
of 5 students and all COVID-19 safety
protocols at the Centre will be in place.
Oxygen is offering two online professional
development courses for creatives
this fall. Starting with Art Shack with
artist Ian Johnston. Ian explains: “It’s
a visual arts professional development
free-for-all! Over four evenings of group
conversation we will harness the hive
mind and the experience of the participants
to explore a self-identified group
of professional development issues such
as proposals, statements, audience, networks
and researching opportunities.”
This is an opportunity to share,
develop your skills, and meet other artists
in a supportive, collaborative space.
The second professional development
course is How to Submit to Commercial
Galleries with artist Kristy Gordon who
will unveil the practical steps you can
take to develop a connection with a commercial
gallery. The one-session course
includes a lecture, discussions and individual
Deborah Thompson has designed an
online drawing course: Drawing with the
World in Mind. This course will run twice
a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays for
the month of October. “The COVID-19
Global Pandemic has highlighted a long
list of global problems; climate change,
homelessness, opioid crisis, racism, classism
and more. Leaning into a creative
practice during these times is helpful
in developing meaningful insights and
in cultivating imaginative ways to give
constructive shape to the future,” says
Many students will be excited that Bessie
Wapp is offering Singing the Blues Goes
Virtual this fall. In this 7-week course
you will explore the rich swamp of the
human voice in a relaxed and supportive
environment through online group
and one-on-one sessions. In November
Rayya Liebich will be offering an online
Poetry Immersion course. From the comfort
of your home immerse yourself in
the language of poetry. Weekly online
classes will focus on studying the craft
of poetry (image, form, feeling) and
allow time for a series of guided writing
prompts to help hone your writing skills.
Also running in November and over
five classes Natasha Smith will be offering
Moving into Abstraction as an online
course. Through a series of hands-on
projects, students will explore various
techniques and alternative ways
to develop ideas and images that will
encourage a more abstract way of
Interdisciplinary artist, prOphecy sun
will be offering an innovative course
this fall: Sonic Imaginaries: An Introduction
to Creating Electronic Compositions.
This online beginner level studio course
explores a wide range of methods and
conceptual approaches to creating electronic
sound. prOphecy explains: “Each
week will explore how sound emerges
and will survey conceptual and methodological
techniques used in music, video,
sound art, and other artistic production.”
Oxygen is committed to helping with
the transition to online programming
and will be offering a free online ZOOM
orientation session for students on September

How to host a sociallydistanced
It’s been a challenging year but celebrating our favourite
holidays can help us to feel busy, happy, and connected. If
you’re planning on hosting a modified Thanksgiving, maintaining
space and comfort is key.
A recent survey found that 74 per cent of people are concerned
about keeping their distance at social gatherings.
With this in mind, try not to let your guests congregate in the
heart of any home, the kitchen! Start meal preparation and
spaced seating plans ahead of time to limit close interactions
in the most commonly used spaces.
Here are a few other tips for hosting a physically distanced
Host an intimate event. Invite only a few close family
members or friends and select the largest room in the home
for an informal setup. Without the traditional place-settings,
the host can ensure that guests are kept a safe distance apart.
No potlucks this year. It’s natural for guests to want to
bring a dish to the gathering, but this year it’s best to leave

show up on time!
the cooking to the host and keep the menu simple. With no
outside dishes involved, there is no excuse for guests to enter
the kitchen to prepare, heat up or plate their contribution to
Preparation is key. Arranging a full Thanksgiving meal
sounds daunting, but with the right planning and tools in
place, it’s possible to host the perfect event, even without
guests’ help in the kitchen. Get the family and/or friends in
your bubble involved in the planning early on. Write a meal
prep timeline and assign names to tasks. Even small children
Offer guests plated meals to help limit contact and high
touch points. Also, ask guests to wash their hands when they
arrive and before the meal starts for peace of mind.

Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid,
broken down into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve
a sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill
each row, column and box. Each number
can appear only once in each row, column
and box. You can figure out the order in
which the numbers will appear by using the
numeric clues already provided in the boxes.
The more numbers you name, the easier it
gets to solve the puzzle!

Interior Health urging
campers to self-monitor
Interior Health (IH) is urging attendees of a camping event
at the Bombi Summit (between Castlegar and Salmo) to selfmonitor
after a large gathering occurred Sept. 12 and 13,
Interior Health has been alerted to a group of approximately
150 participants who attended the group camping
event. In the context of the COVID-19 pandemic when we
learn that people have participated in large gatherings, IH
urges participants to self-monitor for COVID symptoms and
get testing should they develop.
We know COVID-19 is circulating throughout the Interior
Health region. While there was no confirmed case known
to be in attendance at the camping event, the possibility of
COVID-19 exposure is increased significantly when large
groups gather. We urge everyone to keep their bubbles small
and reduce their number of close contacts.
IH reminds everyone of the importance of following
• Do not plan or attend gatherings of more than 50
• Stay home and avoid travel if you have symptoms, even
• Maintain physical distancing (two metres apart) and
use masks when distancing is not possible.
• Wash your hands regularly and do not touch your face.
Testing is recommended for anyone experiencing symptoms
of COVID-19, including:
• Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
• Loss of sense of taste or smell
• Other milder symptoms may include: runny nose, fatigue,
body aches (muscles and joints aching), diarrhea,
headache, sore throat, vomiting and red eyes.
Information about testing and public exposures to COVID-
19 throughout the Interior Health region are available here:

Primary care network coming to RDKB
People living in the Kootenay Boundary
region will have better access to primary health
care with the creation and implementation of a
primary care network in the region.
“Team-based care that responds to the
needs of each community is going to be
the backbone of the new primary care system
in BC and will transform how patients’
everyday health-care needs are met today,
tomorrow and beyond,” said Adrian Dix,
Minister of Health. “By establishing new primary
care networks, as part of our primary
care strategy, we are strengthening health
care supports to address long-standing
gaps in everyday health care for people in
BC, including those living in the Kootenay
Government will provide $5.3 million in
annual funding to the Kootenay Boundary primary
care network when fully established.
Over the next three years, residents will
benefit from approximately an additional 33
full-time equivalent (FTE) healthcare providers
who will provide better access to primary
care in the communities. This will include family
physicians, nurse practitioners, registered
nurses, allied health professionals, a clinic
pharmacist, an Aboriginal health co-ordinator,
one manager and one administrative support
The Kootenay Boundary primary care network
involved consultation with the Kootenay
Boundary Aboriginal Services Collaborative.
The Kootenay Boundary Aboriginal Services
Collaborative has representation from the
Ktunaxa Nation, the Okanagan Nation Alliance,
Métis Nation, and the Circle of Indigenous
Nations Society. All partners continue
to be involved in the implementation of the
“I wish to offer congratulations to the provincial
government, the health districts and to
the social investment sector for accomplishing
this outstanding partnership,” said Sophie
Pierre, Elder and former Chief, Ktunaxa
Nation. “When First Nations and Métis benefit
from such collaboration, all people of the
Allan Louis, Syilx Nation health governance
representative, said: “Syilx (Okanagan) Nation
is pleased to support the announcement of the
primary care network in the Kootenay Boundary.
Improving the health of all Aboriginal
people in Syilx territory is a key goal of Syilx
leadership. Through these innovative collaborations,
we look forward to our continued
progress in implementing our partnership
with Interior Health and the Divisions of Family
The new healthcare providers in the network
will work to attach the approximately 15,250
people who do not have a consistent primary
care provider in the region, while providing
team-based care to residents of the Kootenay
It will address the specific needs of the population,
while ensuring there is a team-based
approach to providing culturally safe care.
These include strengthened supports and services
• better access to chronic disease and
chronic pain management services;
• improved access to services for individuals
with mild to moderate mental health
and substance-use services;
• better co-ordinated services for families
and seniors who are frail and people
with complex health issues;
• improved access to maternity care;
• more access to comprehensive services
for people living in poverty; and
• culturally safe care for Indigenous
For people and families, it means getting
faster, better access to their primary care team
or provider, including evenings and weekends,
as well as being connected to appropriate services
and supports in the community.
In addition to family physicians and nurse
practitioners, new positions include registered
nurses, allied health professionals, social workers,
and Aboriginal health co-ordinators.
The Kootenay Boundary primary care network
is a partnership between the Ministry
of Health, Interior Health, Kootenay Boundary
Division of Family Practice, the Ktunaxa
Nation, and the Okanagan Nation Alliance.
The network will serve people in Trail, Castlegar,
Nelson, Nakusp, Kaslo, Grand Forks,
Salmo and surrounding communities.
Province of BC
As steady as our environment can seem at
times, factors beyond our control have the
potential to rapidly change the world around
us. The current COVID-19 situation, natural
disasters and everyday events like an unexpected
illness or need for relocation can be
stressful, exhausting and can dramatically
change our behaviour.
These changes may be felt even more heavily
by West Kootenay residents living with dementia,
and their caregivers. This September, the

Alzheimer Society of BC is offering a free
webinar on strategies for adapting to rapidly
changing circumstances for people living with
dementia and caregivers.
The ability of a person living with dementia
to cope with rapid change can be greatly
affected by physiological changes to the brain
that result in changes to memory, communication
skills, and personality. Knowing how to
work together while respecting the individuality
of people living with dementia is crucial
to successfully navigating rapidly changing
Behaviours have a reason
When a person living with dementia acts
in a way that may appear strange or out of the
ordinary, they are often doing so to communicate
a need or to meet a need. For example,
pacing can indicate a need to get outside and
walk, while also being a way to expend energy.
Understanding why a behaviour is occurring
can help you to strategize ways to respond and
meet the needs of the person.
Take time to reduce stress
Being the care partner of a person living
with dementia can be stressful and at times,

all-consuming. Take time to de-stress and
enjoy yourself. Meeting your own needs is crucial
to being able to fulfill this responsibility.
Though being aware of current events is critical
to our ability to respond to rapidly changing
circumstances, obsessing over the news
can be anxiety-producing and detrimental to
our response to these circumstances. Limit
time spent absorbing worrying information.

and living with dementia in a rapidly changing
environment, you can participate in the
Alzheimer Society of BC’s upcoming webinar

It’s Forest Week in BC (Sept 20-26) and the West Kootenay
EcoSociety wants to keep the spotlight on forest issues like the
disappearing old growth forests in the West Kootenay and what
that means for us. We rely on healthy forests for clean water and
air, and for access to natural spaces to help keep our minds healthy
too. Unique local animals also rely on special features only found
in old growth forests. With healthy old forests, our communities
have a better chance at adapting to climate change issues like
