Our warmest

year and looking forward to 2021

What a year

A year ago Pennywise, like

many other businesses, was

racing towards Christmas

and the pre-planned two

week vacation our annual

recoup and regroup time.

Little did we know how

much ‘rest’ was ahead for us.

After sliding into 2020

the year of clarity and like

most New Years anticipating

great and joyous opportunities

and adventures ahead,

2020 started gently, kindly

and predictably.

Then COVID hit, as you all

know. Many of us small business

we were smacked upside

the head out of nowhere... and

we ground to a halt. One day

we had customers and clients,

the next day we did not. That

chain reaction saw Pennywise

close down for 8 weeks.

In preparation for reopening

with smaller overhead we

moved from our downtown

location to my basement. In

the summer we were nice and

cool, and we have invested in

down-filled slippers for onsite

staff for the fall and winter season.

We still have 4 employees

working from home.

We are cruising into this

2nd wave of COVID less

naive. We know better how to

protect ourselves and others

from catching the virus with

a few simple precautions...

we eat healthy, stay active,

wear a mask, wash our hands

and keep our distance. Keep

our bubbles small (work and

home) and abstain from large

social gatherings. We will do

whatever we can to help minimize

this very real threat to

society, our economy and the

health care system.

Because of you, our donators/readers,

who chipped

in when cash flow was low -

and advertisers who jumped

back into the paper when we

resurfaced, we are still here

and have laid nobody off! The

provincial and federal incentives

have been helpful for

businesses and for citizens.

I am most thankful for my

staff. We are a lean group,

each person responsible for

a distinctive piece of the puzzle.

They, who have cheerfully

followed me from store front

to basement, from paper to

digital and now through our

next challenge, implementing

a whole new classified intake

and accounting system. They

are an amazing group - propping

each other up as needed,

when the stresses of this new

world are too much.

I am so grateful to each of

my co-workers for the care

and attention they put into

the Pennywise. We are nothing

without our staff, as we

are nothing without our readers

and advertisers.

Wishing you all obvious

blessings in this unusual

Christmas season.

Thank you for your faith

in Pennywise. see you

next year

Wage Subsidy

Expanded

Eligibility

The Wage Subsidy program

allows a worker to gain skills

and experience in addition to

employment, and the employer

gets the financial support

needed to train their hire.

The amount of Wage Subsidy

depends on how much training

is necessary, usually starting at

50% and tapering down to 15%

of the new worker’s wage over

24 weeks.

What employers can benefit

from the expanded WorkBC

Wage Subsidy program?

To be eligible, a business

must be:

• Registered with a legal

business name and business

number that has

been in operation for a

minimum of one year

• Offer Insurable Employment

as defined by the

Employment Insurance

Act (Canada)

• Offer a position where

the job and work is primarily

out of B.C.

• Offer full-time employment

with a minimum of

32 hours per week with

the potential for longterm

work

• Pay reasonable, competitive

wages that are reflective

of the prevailing rate

for the position

• Employers now have the

opportunity to access the

Wage Subsidy support to

rehire a person back to

their same position after

being laid off

Selkirk College

Professional

Cook Training

Program

students spread

holiday cheer

Faced with the pandemic predicament

of too much food with not

enough customers, Selkirk College

students in the Professional Cook

Training Program are providing

a tasty holiday season gift to their

post-secondary peers.

Vital to success for learners

in the cook program—

based out of the kitchen

training facility on Nelson’s

Tenth Street Campus—is

preparing food for high

volume consumption. In

non-COVID years, that

means students are cooking

for the Mary Hall cafeteria,

special banquet events

and the Scholar’s Dining

Room. Pivoting to adhere

to limited in-person activity

on campus, the program

has found an outlet

LAST MINUTE SHOPPING?

Don’t forget

the Eggnog

Professional Cook Training students and instructors have

been training in-person at Selkirk College’s Tenth Street

Campus since September. With training that requires

a volume of tangible outcomes, the program has been

providing excess meals to peers and raising funds for the

Selkirk College Student Food Bank.

Wishing all our

customers and friends

the best of the

holiday season

Our Cafe is Open! Daily homemade sandwiches and other goodies • Holiday hours: Dec 24 9-4; Closed Dec 25, 26; Dec 31 9-4; Closed Jan 1

by providing free meals to

students.

“In order to equip our

learners with the full training

experience, it is not

possible to fully curtail the

volume of finished meals

coming out of the kitchen,”

says Martin Keyserlingk,

chair of the School of Hospitality

& Tourism. “Having

the opportunity to get this

prepared food to students

who are diligently focused

on end of semester assignments

and exams feels

good. These are quality

meals with healthy

ingredients, it comes

at the perfect time.”

The prepared meals

include an assortment

of soups, roast beef

dinners, braised boneless

shortrib and many

other specific menu

items that provide students

in the cook program

with the training

they need as they

proceed along their

journey to become

Red Seal chefs. So far, more than

100 meals have been provided to

students in both the Castlegar and

Nelson student housing facilities.

To raise much-needed money for

the Selkirk College Student Food

Bank, staff have also been able to

purchase some meals by donation.

“I’m proud of the way students

have been able to focus on their

education with the adapted learning

environment that has been

created to ensure safe space for

all of us,” says Chef Simon Parr, a

veteran Professional Cook Training

Program instructor. “The

more immediate satisfaction that

students get from serving freshly

prepared menu items to customers

has been diminished because of

the pandemic, but they know that

those who receive these meals are

still able to appreciate the careful

attention that went into making it.”

Selkirk College offers three levels

of Industry Training Authority

(ITA) Red Seal education and

training at its Tenth Street Campus.

Local physicians

wear their faces on

their lapels

Dr. Sue Babensee, Radiologist at KBRH

KBPA Project Lead for #KBRHSmiles Face

Button

Since everyone in the healthcare field

is wearing masks now, recognizing

people can be challenging. That’s why

the Kootenay Boundary Physicians

Association decided to get face buttons

printed.

“We all need to do our part to stop

the spread of COVID, but we don’t

want to lose the human connection that

comes from seeing people’s faces,” said

Dr. Sue Babensee.

The initial idea came from KBRH

Radiologist Dr. Sue Babensee, which

was further supported unanimously

by the Kootenay Boundary Physician

Association (KBPA) Working Group.

The KBPA is supplying every Physician

and IH Staff Member of the Kootenay

Boundary Regional Hospital with

a face vutton. The goal of the KBPA

#KBRHSmiles Face Button Project is to

support patient-centered care by eliminating

or reducing a level of fear and

anxiety for patients who find comfort

in seeing the smiling faces of their providers

and health care team members.

With the new safety policies around

COVID-19, such as mask-wearing, this

is a strategy to help accomplish the best

possible experience for the patients

during their health care visits and also

support personal interaction within the

hospital with physicians and IH staff

members.

Usually, our communications team

would go to KBRH and take photos

of the physicians and IH staff for this

project; however, during COVID, we

have asked everyone to take their photograph

and upload them. So far, so

good. The first batch of face buttons

has been delivered to KBRH and are

now being worn by physicians and IH

staff. The #KBRHSmiles Face Button

Project runs through December 2020

at KBRH, and news has spread; it looks

like Kootenay Lake Hospital KLH Nelson

will take on the project too!

For more information, contact KBPA

Project Co-Ordinator Kimberley Pegg

at kpegg@kbpa.ca

Kootenay Boundary Physicians

Association

Regional tourism

receives COVID-19

recovery funding

boost

The Kootenay Rockies Tourism

Association will receive $2.3 million to

invest in regional tourism development.

As part of the Province’s Stronger BC

economic recovery plan B.C.’s six tourism

regions will receive a total of $13.6

million to create employment opportunities,

attract new businesses and

spur economic diversification within

communities.

“We recognize these are challenging

times and we appreciate the sacrifices

everyone is making to flatten the

curve and be safe,” said Melanie Mark,

Minister of Tourism, Arts, Culture and

Sport. “This funding for regional tourism

organizations was a call to action

to help BC communities to be ready to

welcome travellers as soon as it’s safe to

do so and it reflects our Government’s

commitment to work collaboratively

and support people to get back to

work.”

Examples of regional tourism development

projects include accessibility

upgrades along a scenic route, connecting

tourism experiences across a region

such as overnight trip itineraries, points

of interest along highway corridors,

and supporting the development of

more Indigenous tourism experiences.

Projects proposed will be determined

in partnership with local and regional

governments, First Nations, non-profits

and regional tourism management

organizations.

“The Kootenay Rockies region has

been deeply impacted by the COVID-

19 pandemic. Our tourism businesses

many of whom are small, seasonal

and locally owned, are extremely concerned

about their ability to continue

operating in 2021,” said Kathy Cooper,

CEO, Kootenay Rockies Tourism

Association. “This investment will be

instrumental in supporting our tourism

destination’s recovery and resiliency.

We look forward to engaging

with our partners to ensure the funds

address major experiential gaps, align

with B.C.’s Strategic Framework for

Tourism and our regional Destination

Development Strategy, thereby resulting

in the biggest economic impact to

our destination.”

Quick Facts:

Engagement with communities to

review existing or identify new regional

initiatives will take place between now

and January 2021, with final decisions

on projects made by the Ministry of

Tourism, Arts, Culture and Sport in

March 2021.

All projects are to start by December

31, 2021 and will be completed by

March 31, 2023.

Kootenay artist, Bruce Paterson, has

building. Paterson is well-known for his

charming depictions of historic regional

buildings including Kaslo’s City Hall,

Nelson’s Bank of Montreal and Pilot Bay

memories of community events held in

the hall which for many decades was

Project. Community donations alone

have now exceeded over $12,600 and an

work in the hall before the end of

this year.

The fundraising committee have

Anita Vibe takes

home prize

As everyone can imagine,

schools have changed a lot because

of COVID-19 and Anita Vibe won

the Educator Prize in the Kootenay

Contraption Contest because

she identified a challenge to solve:

There are too many bells right now

at school to ensure a flawless circulation

in the hallways.

The educator category is something

new for the Kootenay Contraption

Contest. The GLOWS

team felt it was essential to include

educators because their commitment

to enriching education has

been inspiring to witness. They are

not only adapting their methods in

a new and unique world of learning,

they are creating innovative

strategies, acquiring progressive

skills and forging a new pathway

for learning during these uncertain

times.

We loved that Anita used her

surname to name her contraption:

“The VIBEration Bracelet”. What is

it exactly? It is a bracelet that every

student and teacher could wear.

The bracelet would vibrate when

recess starts or ends as well as for

the lunch break. But more than

that, the doors would be automated

for this system, allowing everyone

to enter or exit through doors without

touching them. To avoid having

too many people in the bathroom,

the bracelet will also change colour

and would become green if there is

room to enter, red if it’s full!

We really appreciated that Anita

clearly mentioned what her challenge

was before explaining how

her contraption works. Her entry

was both innovative and creative.

It’s not Anita’s first year of participation

either. She usually sends

GLOWS contraptions designed

by her students and this year, we

are so glad to be able to highlight

her! Anita is a Grade Six teacher

in Nakusp where she lives with her

family that includes three kids. She

enjoys learning new things and

playing outside, hiking, gardening

and skiing. One day she hopes to

learn to play an instrument.

Thank you Anita for participating

this year again with your students,

we hope you enjoy your prize

of four Arduino Uno’s generously

donated by Nelson, BC based tech

company SMRT1 Technologies.

industrial technologies and

other advanced engineering

disciplines.

Place on the horizon, the Nelson CARES

Society Board of Directors and staff have

demonstrated how a small community organization

can make significant positive change

happen.

“We couldn’t be happier to recognize the

Nelson CARES Society with our Housing

Provider of the Year award,” said Jill Atkey,

CEO of BCNPHA. “They took a challenging

situation, engaged the community and

surpassed their goals. They have not only

continued to provide housing and important

services for vulnerable Nelson residents, they

are also expanding to ensure housing and

supports for local seniors. Nelson CARES is

an inspiring example of our resilient sector,

and all of us here at BCNPHA extend our sincerest

congratulations!”

The ‘Housing Provider of the Year’ award

recognizes not only the two new affordable

accommodation projects underway

in 2020, it celebrates all the work that has

been done over the last eight years to sustain

and develop affordable housing in Nelson.

The award was only possible with the

When they received the news that they would

be this year’s provincial recipient they were

truly overwhelmed.

“Serving on the board of directors has been

a very rewarding experience,” said Ron Little,

board chair. “To see the manifestation

of what it means to ‘reach out to support the

most vulnerable members of our community’

is gratifying and to be recognized by our

peers across the province puts an exclamation

director, Nelson CARES Society.

The criteria for the award that the BCN-

PHA asks that the housing provider has

developed and implemented a strong and

sustained response to an internal or external

challenge, has ensured that its residents

were supported through a challenge or crisis,

and has engaged residents in meaningful

ways through its crisis response, as developed

and/or updated business continuity plans in

Join us in wishing Judy Hawes the very best

Judy, we hope that your 37 years contributing to the success

of Pennywise have been as rewarding for you

as they have been for Pennywise.

You have been:

• the backbone

• the storm before the calm

• the work horse…

a steady, dependable, contributing teammate who has

helped us move from the old (electro typesetter??) to our

current all-digital form.

Over the last 37 years you have done everything from sales

to final layout. Starting out in an office with only two others,

a team which eventually grew to 17 persons, then back

to its current ten... as our production manager you played

a key role in decision making, and were instrumental in

applying new procedures and applications. We cannot thank

you enough!

We know you are happy to be sidestepping the

implementation of our new accounting and classified intake

program.

May your retirement years prove as happy and

fulfilling as your professional years.

Inspiring hope with

intergenerational connections

The Nelson CARES Society and the Nelson Civic Theatre

Society are bringing the social and arts and culture sectors

together in an inclusive and intergenerational project that

explores the hopes and aspirations of different generations

for our post-pandemic world. Lynzee Bewcyk, Intergenerational

Project Coordinator for Nelson CARES Society and

Jan Wright the President of the Nelson Civic Theatre Society

Board are inviting people of all ages to participate in an online

contest to tell their story through video of how they think and

feel about their hopes for the future.

For many of us, the impact of COVID -19 has increased feelings

of social isolation, loneliness and has highlighted many

areas where we can do better as a society. Children, youth and

adults talk about missing their friends and social activities

and as Bewcyk notes, “Before the pandemic, social isolation

is what many seniors may have already been experiencing as

well as feelings of being invisible and often dismissed”. This

intergenerational project aims to connect people from different

generations to learn about each other while providing

a sense of community belonging through producing a video

about inclusion.

educate, connect, and communicate through building

programming, events, and services for its communities, is a

perfect fit with this very creative project. As a senior, Wright is,

“Excited to be working with and learning from younger generations

on a project that will use video and digital media as a

way of reflecting and capturing the social hopes of generations

experiencing this period in time.”

The aim of the project is to raise awareness of how different

generations think and feel about their hopes for the future.

Entrants are being asked to create and submit a video that is

around 3-5 minutes long answering the question: “What are

your hopes for our post-pandemic world?” The video must

involve at least one intergenerational relationship. For example,

a youth working with someone from the boomer generation

or a teen and their grandparent.

People are asked to follow the advice of our health care professionals

and The BC Centre for Disease Control to practice

safe social distancing while creating their videos. This includes

taking the necessary measures of using a mask, washing hands

often, and keeping a two-metre distance from others.

The contest is open to emerging and advanced videographers.

There will be prizes awarded to each category as well

as one people’s choice award. 1. Emerging 1st prize 2.

Advanced 1st prize 3. People’s Choice Award

Video entries open January 4th, 2021 and submissions are

due on February 28th, 2021. Entries will be shown on the Nelson

Civic Theatre Society’s website. The public will have an

opportunity to watch the videos and vote for their favourites.

Nelson CARES & Kootenay Seniors

Nelson Girl Guide wins 2020

Kootenay Contraption Contest

Emily McCandlish is a problem solver. It was clear from the

moment our judges reviewed her contraption that we reached

a kid who understood the purpose of the Kootenay Contraption

Contest and delivered a contraption that clearly and simply

answered the 2020 Kootenay Contraption Question:

“Think about a challenge you’re facing at school or homeschool.

Create a contraption to solve this problem so that students/Educators

of the future won’t have the same challenge.”

Emily gets distracted when she’s at homeschool, so she created

the “Distract Be Gone” hat to help her stay focused on her

school work, drown out noises and block distracting screens.

“After three days of continuous talking and drawing her

contraption, I was pretty proud of the results she came up

with. Emily really got into this competition with a series of

revisions to her plan before reaching the final design. I guess

all those enthusiastic late night conversations about her Contraption

paid off! We are in the process of building the Distract-Be-Gone

for real world testing soon!” said her father,

Brad McCandlish.

Emily’s solution-orientated contraption has won her the

grand prize bundle donated by Nelson-based business, Phoenix

Computers + Technology! Emily has one more distracting

screen now because her prize bundle includes a Samsung Galaxy

Tab A tablet, Philips bluetooth headset and a Polk Audio

waterproof speaker. The GLOWS team hopes if she does build

her contraption that she can integrate her new bluetooth headset

into her design!

The prize bundle wasn’t the only reward for the eight year

old third grade winner! Emily’s Distract Be Gone Hat earned

her the Inventor Badge through her Nelson Community Girl

Guides unit. We connected with her leader Anne Simonen to

find out more.

“It was a natural connection!” said Simonen. “They have to

connect with a female inventor for one step of the badge, and

I’m an engineer, so I did some creativity exercises and brainstorming

with them, and it was up to them to finish it.”

Contraptions were judged based on the following criteria: if

the contraption answered the question, clarity, presentation,

creativity, innovation and of course if the contraption solved

the problem.

“What we really appreciated with Emily’s contraption is

that she clearly named what her problem was. Not only was

her innovative, but she clearly gave it a lot of thought and we

could identify that through her explanation. Being distracted

is most likely a challenge a lot of students are facing at school

or homeschool and we thought the Distract Be Gone Hat

solved this problem,” said Laura Vache, KAST’s Community

Engagement Coordinator

Congratulations Emily! Your contraption is a beautiful

example of why our team here at KAST is proud to offer Growing

and Learning Opportunities With STEAM to the youth in

our region. The future is bright!

Taghum food

drop

This bi‐weekly program

connects customers with produce

and other good things

through a Covid-safe pick-up

system at Taghum Hall.

Our goal: To link customers

with food producers and

crafters; To create a simple

distribution system for local

food producers and artisans

over Christmas and until the

world becomes a whole lot

friendlier (and you can hug

your local farmer again).

Taghum Hall hopes to

assist our local producers to

sell their products. This program

is in direct response to

COVID‐19, and our inability

to host our usual monthly

indoor winter markets. We

will host TWO deliverydrops

in “holiday” December.

This program aims to

assist in creating a resilient

food‐system, and help people

to access healthy, affordable

food.

How will it work? Customers

can browse supplier

websites from our

list and place and pay for

orders online. Farmers and

artisans will pre‐package

paid‐for items at their own

location and drop them off

at Taghum Hall. All dropoff

and pick‐up activity will

occur outdoors, with mandatory

mask-wearing and

hand‐sanitizing. Only customers

will touch their prebagged

items. Taghum Hall

has strictly followed all Public

Health safety guidelines

thus far, and will continue to

monitor and adapt to changing

requirements.

This program is community‐minded,

connecting

farmers and customers,

and is run by volunteers.

The project is gentle on the

Earth by not contributing to

packaging/shipping waste

and allows farmers/artisans

only one distribution trip to

town. Is that a win-win or

what? Visit https://taghumhall.ca

to register as a vendor

or a customer. There is

a small subscription fee for

customers and a small dropoff

fee for vendors.

Say no to

waste this

holiday

Exciting packages start

arriving at our homes at

this time of year, so what do

we do with all the packaging?

How can we reduce the

amount that goes into our

garbage? Let’s try to recycle

or reuse as much as we can.

There are three systems

for recycling in the

north Kootenay Lake area,

depending on where you

live. If you live in Kaslo

village you have bi-weekly

curbside pickup in your

blue bin for some items,

Kaslo Transfer Station for

the rest. If you live in RDCK

Area D, then you can take

your recycling to the Kaslo

Transfer Station near the

airport (Sunday, Tuesday,

Friday 10 3 except stat

holidays) or if you live at

the north end you can take

some items to the Marblehead

Transfer Station

(Wednesday, Saturday 10

2 except stat holidays),

the rest to Kaslo Transfer

Station.

What and where to

recycle:

1. Paper gift wrap, paper

gift bags, greeting cards,

cardboard boxes (flattened)

- Kaslo curbside or either

transfer station.

2. Plastic shopping bags,

foam packaging, bubble

wrap, plastic shipping envelopes

- Kaslo Transfer Station

only, not Marblehead.

3. Not accepted: Foil or

glitter gift wrap, ribbons or

bows. To garbage. Can you

reuse them?

For more information

on holiday recycling go

to https://recyclebc.ca/

tis-season-holiday-recycling/

where you will find

information on how to

recycle other holiday items

like plastic and tinfoil

containers.

Kaslo first to

adopt 100%

renewable

energy plan

Kaslo is the first

community in the West

Kootenay region to officially

adopt a 100% renewable

energy plan and is leading

the way to a healthy, clean,

and strong future.

Following up on the Village

of Kaslo’s 2019 commitment

to transition to

100% renewable energy

by 2050 and to collaborate

with other local governments,

community stakeholders

and experts in the

region to develop a plan,

Kaslo village council voted

unanimously Tuesday night

to adopt the West Kootenay

100% Renewable Energy

Plan.

“I am pleased that the Village

of Kaslo has adopted

the 100% Renewable

Energy Plan and has been

the first local government in

the region to do so. I would

like to thank the West Kootenay

EcoSociety for their

assistance and guidance

over the past year in the

development of this plan.

I would also like to thank

Councillor Knoll and CAO

Dunlop for their participation

in the process on behalf

of the Village of Kaslo,” says

Mayor Suzan Hewat.

“I look forward to seeing

how some of these initiatives

can be incorporated

into our Official Community

Plan as the guiding

document for Kaslo over

the next five years. Our

Council hopes to work with

our local group, the Kaslo

Climate Action Team on

some of these initiatives,”

the mayor adds. The village

is embarking on a review

of its Official Community

Plan in 2021.

Kaslo is one of nine local

governments that has been

working with West Kootenay

EcoSociety for the past

year to develop the 100%

renewable energy plan.

Along with regional strategies,

each local government

has prioritized the actions it

can take that are most relevant

to their community.

For instance, most of Kaslo’s

non-renewable energy

use comes from passenger

and commercial vehicles.

Although buildings use

a lot of energy, most of it

already comes from renewable

electricity sources.

The next step is for the

other eight local governments

to bring the plan

before their councils for

adoption and then to begin

to implement the plan.

Conner

sponsored by

Conner is an approximately 2 year old orange tabby that comes

with some sass. He loves his food and treats. Conner is quite

vocal when he seeks out attention, but will let you know when

he’s done if he gets over-stimulated. Conner may benefit from

being an indoor cat with safe outdoor access. He would fit best

in an adult only home.

Give the gift of

creativity this year!

An Oxygen Gift Certificate is the perfect

gift for the creative in your life and it is so

much more than an educational experience!

Taking a creative class can help build social

connections, reduce anxiety and stress, create

SOLD

meaningful memories and exercise an enquiring

mind!

With ten

new courses

scheduled for

2021 there is

a great variety

to choose

from with

poetry, painting, collage, colour theory, wearable

art and sound-based inquiry.

“Online courses are a great addition to

Oxygen’s education programming” says Education

Coordinator Natasha Smith. “Our

instructors have created classes to be specifically

taught online, utilizing the many tools

that we now have available to make this learning

experience rewarding, interactive and

convenient for our students. We now have

students joining us from across the country

and courses are filling fast” says Smith.

Bring a Friend is another new Oxygen initiative.

During these difficult COVID times

we are all missing spending time with our

friends and family, so Oxygen is encouraging

you to take a course together by offering a

10% bring-a-friend discount!
