Coldest Night of

the Year Walkathon

for Castlegar:

Castlegar Community Services has

been hosting an event for the past three

years in solidarity with hundreds of cities

across Canada, all with the aim of

raising money for local charities that

help people in need. The walkathon is

Canada’s national walkathon for homelessness.

Funds raised in Castlegar help

support the Homelessness Partnering

Strategy which provides services to people

in need of housing, and to the Youth

Action Network, which providese preventative,

social and community based

leadership supports and opportunities to

youth in our community who both use

the program and have, year after year,

volunteered to help plan and execute this

event. Hundreds of people in our community

have shown their support for

this event, for the people it helps and for

the programs at Castlegar Community

The event in Castlegar raises funds to support, the Homelessness Partnering

Strategy and Youth Action Network Programs, of the Castlegar

and District Community Services non-profit agency. The event brings

together hundreds of people in the community annually, including

various groups of youth and students who have helped lead and execute

this event year after year.

Anyone can help in many ways:

1. Walk 2 or 5 km, raise pledges for yourself or team comprised

of your work place or family bubble

2. Donate online or contact the organizers to donate in kind

contributions such as food for the walkers

3. Sponsor our event

Nelson CARES Society hosts a Virtual Coldest Night of the Year event

to support their ‘Ready for Home’ program that operates within Ward

Street Place and supports the residents there to access government, healthcare,

prescriptions and groceries anything they might need to stay housed.

https://cnoy.org/nelson

Hosted by Nelson CARES Society

Services, by pledging to walk, donate,

sponsor the event as a business, offering

in-kind donations or volunteering to

help on and before event day.

This year we are reaching out to the

community again for support but it

will be different. Due to the Covid 19

pandemic the event will be virtual. This

means that we are doing our part to keep

our community safe. Funds can be raised

entirely online and the event will not

take place in-person as it has in the past.

But we can still walk and we can still

raise funds to help those members of our

community that need support the most,

especially in times like this.

What does a virtual event look like?

• In this case, Castlegar’s Coldest

Night of the Year can still take place,

walkers can sign up online @ cnoy.org,

and raise funds virtually.

• We will encourage walkers to walk

on the day of the event (February 20)

in small teams of 6 or less anywhere in

HOSTED BY

CASTLEGAR

COMMUNITY

SERVICES It’s cold out

there. The Coldest Night

of the Year is a covid-safe,

family-friendly walk to raise

money for charities serving

people experiencing homelessness,

hurt, and hunger.

Walk with us (virtually) on

February 20, 2021 there’s

a place for everyone!

SOCIETY, and sponsored

by Valhalla Pure Nelson,

Centre, OM Foods, and

the Nelson & District Credit

Union.

PLEASE NOTE:

All moneys raised by

each HOST will remain

in that community.

Thank you for caring.

Castlegar and to wear their toques, but

walkers must raise $150.00 before event

day to get a toque.

• Toques can be picked up and walkers

can check in prior to the event at the Flamingo

Motel parking lot 1660 Columbia

Avenue between 4 and 6 pm on February,

14, 16 and 18.

• This year, if walkers are unable to do

their walks on event day, have mobility

issues or are not comfortable walking in

a group during Covid, they may choose

to walk any day in the month of February

or raise funds online without walking.

• Funds can be collected until the end

of March and businesses can support

by donating larger sums as sponsors in

exchange for public recognition of their

sponsorship on the Coldest Night of the

Year website (cnoy.org) which can be

accessed both nationally and locally, as

well as in our local media releases post

event.

ARCTIC OUTFLOW Claire Dibble

The culmination of an artist’s residency aboard a ship sailing in the Arctic

waters of Svalbard, “Arctic Outflow” reflects on the ways that humans are

embedded in even the most remote landscapes on Earth.

Using photo transfer images, bits of marine rubbish collected on shorelines,

and found rope Claire Dibble’s work expresses a commentary on consumerism,

acceptance, and seeking beauty in our current situation.

SUDOKU

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!

As with prior events, all donations over $20 are tax deductible and

receipts are mailed out after the online registration is complete.

The Covid pandemic has brought about a lot of change.

This year we will be missing the in-person event, but there is

an opportunity to use the change to do some good for some

of the people in our community who need it the most. Those

who are out in the cold, those with nowhere to go, hungry and

hurting, and our youth. The young leaders of tomorrow’s Castlegar,

those who may have experienced homelessness, may be

experiencing loneliness, a social disconnect, those who may be

seeking ways to be a part of their community and give back to

those who need it the most.

Please consider taking a step to do something great this

month. Give back, take part, take a step and sign up today.

Tell your friends, ask your co-workers, this is a feel good event

once you’ve taken part you will want to do it again, because you

will know you’ve made a difference.

For the love of

the Kootenays

February is the month of

Selkirk College

alumnus shoots for

the moon

A graduate of Selkirk College, 22-year-old Ben

Marken studied in the Millwright/Machinist

Program and the Digital Arts & New Media

Program.

When NASA put out an online challenge

to help find solutions for unloading

supplies on the Moon, Selkirk

College alumnus Ben Marken answered

the worldwide call with a design that

turned heads and placed him an impressive

fifth overall in the competition.

The National Aeronautics & Space

Administration (NASA) is currently

pushing forward with its Artemis program

that will land the first woman and

next man on the Moon by 2024. As part

of its overall scheme to send astronauts

to Mars, the US-based space agency

appealed to the online community to

come up with answer for unloading supplies

on the surface so sustainable exploration

of the Moon can proceed.

The Advanced Lightweight Lunar

Gantry for Operations (ALLGO) Challenge

sought creative solutions using

computer-aided design models for a

mobile support structure based on a

framework of inflatable components.

With a detailed list of specifications provided

by judges and no time to spare,

Marken set to work on his design that

resulted in the ALLGO Tubecrane.

“It’s like taking three of those inflatable

tube men you see outside of car dealerships

and gluing the bottom of each one to

a golf cart,” Marken says when asked to put

his submission into simple terms. “Strap a

crane on top, send it 380,000 kilometres

into space and hope everything works. The

short answer is that it’s just an expandable

gantry crane for unloading cargo.”

Out of 132 total accepted entries that

appealed to a community engineers,

designers, manufacturers and students,

Marken’s concept came in fifth overall.

He was the only Canadian entry to reach

the final contest.

“The three-tube bladder was a unique

feature,” Marken says. “It held strong in

all the FEA software I used, nice and

rigid. The judges gave it a test themselves

and liked the concept.”

A graduate of Nelson’s LV Rogers Secondary

in 2016, Marken entered Selkirk

College’s Digital Arts & New Media Program

straight out of high school. With

a passion for learning and a superb talent

for problem solving, he further built

on his formal education in the college’s

Millwright/Machinist Program on the

Silver King Campus.

In coming up with his design for the

ALLGO Challenge, Marken did research

on both NASA’s Apollo 15 Mission and

the former Soviet Union’s Lunokhod Program,

two early-1970s Moon projects that

focused on lunar roving vehicles. He also

tapped his post-secondary education at

Selkirk College to help him with the entry.

“The judges made some pretty unique

requests for the concept they were looking

for and I didn’t have much formal training

in that area, the closest I had to help

me is machinist and engineering graphic

communications classes,” says Marken.

“The swing-drive idea was inspired by a

modern excavator and the three-boom

gantry off of a delta style printer.”

With an approach to education and

future career that places focus on building

a diversity of skills while pushing

towards what interests him, Marken

is modest about his latest accomplishment.

His fifth-place finish comes with

praise from the space agency, but it’s

unclear whether his ambitions include

a future helping NASA more formally

solve problems of space exploration.

“Only if they have free coffee in the

break room,” he smiles.

Mama needs

support?

Mamas for Mamas is a national charitable

organization with a branch right

here in the West Kootenay. The organization

supports mothers and caregivers

in crisis by providing ongoing support

to individuals and families facing

various poverty-related struggles. Its

mission is to change the landscape of

poverty through innovative approaches

to financial barriers faced by struggling

families.

While the name is Mamas for Mamas,

it welcomes caregivers of any gender

identity or expression, including men,

trans*, non-binary, and two-spirit clients.

They envision a future where no

Mama or child is left behind.

It’s hard enough being a parent without

the stress of clothing or food insecurity,

lack of appropriate mental health

care, and everything else that can easily

fall through the cracks in our busy society.

Mamas for Mamas is there for those

parents who need help navigating eligible

resources, applying for social supports,

and getting direct intake support

while joining this Mamas community

that genuinely looks after each other.

part of a dementia-friendly future but

so is raising your voice and becoming

an advocate for policies that reflect their

needs.

Though Alzheimer’s Awareness

Month ends with January, the work isn’t

finished. We hope Nelson, Castlegar,

Grand Forks, Nakusp, Slocan Valley,

Trail, Rossland and other Kootenay residents

will remain committed to changing

the future. One way we invite you to

do this is by registering and fundraising

for the IG Wealth Management Walk

for Alzheimer’s.

Participants can raise funds to

support Alzheimer Society of BC programs

and service and walk their own

way all throughout May to honour

people in their lives who have been

affected by dementia. Then we will join

together virtually on Sunday, May 30, to

celebrate the difference we’ve made. To

learn more, visit walkforalzheimers.ca.

It’s going to take a movement of people

committed to making life better for

Canadians affected by dementia. Local

volunteers play an invaluable role. By

sharing our stories and publishing our

letters, local media helps foster a better

understanding of dementia’s impact on

local families. Together, we are working

towards our goal of a dementia-friendly

province.

If your family is affected by Alzheimer’s

disease or another dementia,

please call the First Link®

Dementia Helpline (1-800-936-6033)

to learn about the disease or find out

about support groups and other services

available to West Kootenay residents.

Support is also available in Mandarin

or Cantonese at 1-833-674-5007 and in

Punjabi at 1-833-674-5003. Learn more

“In the excitement to share the good news

about being vaccinated and encourage others

to do the same, we must still keep in mind

that not everyone on social media is trustworthy”,

with information

they

can use to

create and

Britain, scammers were caught selling fake

vaccination cards on eBay and TikTok and

falsely claimed that part of the proceeds was

in support of local charities. While BBB has

not yet received any local reports, it is only

a matter of time before similar cons come to

Canada.

BBB offers the following tips to help you

share safely on social media:

Share a vaccine sticker or use a profile

frame instead. If you want to post about your

vaccine, there are safer ways to do it. You can

share a photo of a vaccine sticker or set a

frame around your profile picture.

Review your security settings. Check your

security settings on all social media platforms

to see what you are sharing and with whom. If

you only want friends and family to see your

posts, be sure that is how your privacy settings

are configured.

Be wary of answering popular social media

prompts. Sharing your vaccine photo is just

the latest social trend. Think twice before participating

in other viral personal posts, such

as listing all the cars you have owned (including

make/model/year), favourite songs, and

top 10 TV shows. Some of these “favourite

things” are commonly used passwords or

security questions for your most valuable

online accounts.

Brian Lye exhibition opens

at Oxygen

Oxygen Art Centre welcomed

Brian Lye as Artist-in-Residence

throughout

December and January where

he created works for the exhibition

Above Above Below

Below, on view from February

20 to March 20 March,

Saturdays between 1 and

5pm by appointment only.

Lye is an internationally

renowned filmmaker, artist,

and educator who lives and

works in Nelson. His practice

is focused in analogue

film production, merging the

everyday with formal experimentations

in play, special

effects, and psychogeography.

Lye’s current body of work

begins with crystals. Having

conducted research for

an experimental documentary

on crystalline minerals

across scientific, mining, and

healing fields, Lye investigates

the human and natural

relation to crystals through

discussion-based research.

Interviewing experts on crystals

from the region forms

the foundational material for

Lye’s experiments in 16mm

analogue film.

Fascinated by the semiprecious

stones and their

capacity for transmission,

amplification, and new age

applications, Lye draws upon

his background in filmmaking

and installation to

create an immersive body

of work on view in the exhibition,

Above Above Below

Below.

During his residency Lye

experimented with traditional

16mm film titling

techniques, growing crystals,

developing film, and creating

a series of projection

installations.

Due to the ongoing pandemic

Oxygen Art Centre

will be welcoming individuals

and groups (up to 6,

same household) to visit the

exhibition by creating an

appointment, below. Visitors

will be greeted by a projectionist

who will assist in the

presentation of the 16mm

film installations. Appointments

run up to 20 minutes

each to allow for cleaning of

the space before and afterwards.

Visitors are required

to comply with and review

Oxygen’s COVID-19 prevention

protocols prior to their

appointment.

To make an appointment,

visit Oxygen’s website or contact

us at info@oxygenartcentre.ord

for more information.

Here’s how: WE’VE GOT YOUR LUMBER

With heavy hearts we share the

sad news of the peaceful passing

of Doe; beloved husband of

62 years, father, grandfather and

great-grandfather. He passed

away at home with his wife Fran

by his side. For the past several

years Doe had a battle with

cancer. He stayed strong and

always kept his sense of humour.

He was

predeceased by his parents

Emil and Agnes (Belisle), brothers

Maurice and Felix, motherin-law

Antoinette Roy, sisters-inlaw

Mary and Brenda, a

grandson David and a

great-grandson Maximillion.

Doria and Fran had six children.

June Charison (Curtis), Daniel

Gauthier (Deb), Michel Gauthier,

Monique Ruchkall (Richard),

Elise Hawryluk (Darcy) and Paul

Gauthier (Trena). Doe had eleven

grandchildren: Cameron (Whytnie),

Jodie (Nicole), Shane (Precious Joy), Celia

(Jan), Hope, Corey, Kyle, Megan (Colin),

Amanda (Terry) and Janae. Doe had

fourteen great-grandchildren: Chloe,

Ryan, Brady, Hadley, Mayla, Levi, Jaxon,

Peyton, Jazzlyn, Jagger, Nate, Nixon and

Zayden. Included in his family circle are

ex daughters-in-law Connie and Tara.

Doe dearly loved and was so proud of

all of his family.

Doe was born to Emil and Agnes

and was the third born of four boys:

Maurice, Ralph and Felix. He had a few

years of primary school but quit to take

care of Maurice his older, blind brother

while his parents worked. At a young

age he sought out employment. Doe

worked at various jobs; he worked at

the bakery Robinson Shortbread, as

a delivery driver, a gravel truck driver,

worked at Independent Fish, Simpson

Sears as a roofer, a sanitary engineer,

he worked for the city of St. Boniface

in the water department checking

water levels during flood season and

worked at Quality Construction. He

was a jack of all trades. He moved

with his family to Gunton, Manitoba

in 1970 and soon after took a job with

Charisons Turkey Hatchery and later at

Maksymyk Homes. Then he became a

self employed general contractor. Doe

learned his trade of carpentry from his

father and a lot of it was self taught. He

worked hard his entire life until the age

of 80. One day he had difficulty putting

a set of stairs together and he knew

it was time to put down the hammer

and hang up the tool belt. He loved

working and enjoyed his many jobs and

the interaction with his many, many

customers some of whom became

very good friends.

He married the love of his life, Fran

Roy, in April of 1958. They resided in St.

Boniface, St. Vital and Gunton, Manitoba

and in 1987 they moved to Alberta

and lived in Egremont, Acme and then

on to Bashaw. In Bashaw Doe and Fran

owned and operated a motel for five

years. Then from Bashaw they moved

to Glade, British Columbia where Doe

absolutely thrived, living right next to

the Kootenay river, and he loved the

waterfalls in the bush right in his back

yard so to speak. In the fall of 2019

his ill health brought him back to his

Manitoba beginnings where he lived in

Lac Du Bonnet until the present time.

Doe was proud of his Metis heritage

and those roots really shone through

with his love of nature and the wilderness.

He hunted, fished, trapped, and

loved berry picking. His other loves

were his family and friends, dogs, his

favourite bird the goose and favourite

animal the moose, motorcycling (in his

younger years), old time country and

fiddling music (his favourite fiddler being

Cliff Maytwayashing) dancing and

jigging, he loved to party, gardening (for

the cucumbers and beans), hockey (his

Kerry Reed’s

fishing report

Kootenay Lake:

We are now in midwinter fishing conditions.

The water is cold, and the fish

are lethargic. But, they still have to eat!!

In January, on most of our trips, we

noticed the rainbow fishing drop off.

However, we are still hooking a few each

day. Although, the bull trout fishing has

been pretty consistent, which has made

it entertaining.

Rainbows are still averaging 2 4 lbs,

but the bull trout have been a bit heavier.

Bulls between 3 15 lbs have come in

lately. Just have to put in the time.

One memorable trip from January

Montreal Canadiens and then the

Winnipeg Jets), black forest cake,

Chinese food and his beer. There

was nothing he enjoyed more

than cutting wood for his wood

stove and being on his riding lawn

mower cutting grass. He was such

a friendly guy who took up a conversation

with anyone, anywhere

and walked away having made a

new friend. He especially liked his

coffee clutches where he could

shoot the breeze with the guys. He

played the lotto tickets and always

had one either in his pocket or in

his truck. Doe had quite a refined

palate; he ate with his eyes and

his comment without even tasting

was always Nope, don’t like that.

Doe had a stubborn streak and

oh man he had his opinions. If

someone or something ruffled his

feathers it was a constant source

of angst for him and all those who

heard about it over and over again. He

certainly was one of a kind. Doe said he

wanted to return in his next life as a

goose.

“Let the wide open skies be your

domain and you be the lead bird in your

echelon. We’ll give a quick wave and

call out your name, so long for now. We

all love you Doe.”

We miss you deeply and will forever

treasure your love and memory in our

hearts.

METIS FUNERAL PRAYER

“Do not look at my grave and weep;

I am not there. I am a thousand winds

that blow. I am the diamond glints on

the snow. I am the sunlight on ripened

grain. I am the gentle spring rain. I am

not there, I did not die. When you

awaken in the morning hush, I am the

swift, uplifting rush of quiet birds in

circled flight. I am the soft stars that

shine over your head at night. Do not

stand at my grave and cry. I am not

there, I did not die.”

May we all find the power in this prayer

and look to the future for reunion and a

great hunt.

had a couple of young bucks on board

who were keen to fish. They managed to

hook a couple rainbows each and about

8 bull trout. The fun part was watching

the participation of both of them during

each battle. The boys took turns reeling

in fish and also took turns netting each

other’s fish. Teamwork made this day

successful. The biggest fish of the day

was a bull trout just under 9 lbs, with a

bunch of 3 5 pounders rounding out

the day.

It’s always a blast having the young

guns on the boat.

While January and February might

not provide the quantity of fish we are

always hoping for, it usually provides

us with some quality fish. So, it’s always

worth a trip.

Arrow Lakes:

As per our previous reports, the

Arrows are still a bit hit and miss. Upper

Arrow is still producing both rainbows

and bull trout up to 15 lbs. Lower Arrow

has been pretty quiet. Although, we did

hear a few decent reports from one or

two different boats. If you put in your

time and practise some patience, the

end result can be rewarding.

Columbia River:

Still getting a few fish on the river.

The water is

high right now,

and the fishing

is up and down

as well. We’ve

had a few good

days out there

lately. Rainbows

up to 6 lbs have

been coming in.

But, it’s different

every day.

Looking forward

to getting

back on the river

if the weather

cooperates

during February.

In the past we’ve

had some of our

best days on the

river in February

and March.

What are they

biting on?

When they are

biting, the Kootenay

rainbows

have been hitting

on the #10, 15,

and 22 from lux

flies, as well as

our favourite Brass/Firestripe, or Brass/

Firewing Crocs.

The bull trout have been fairly consistent

on the Gibbs/Delta STS flasher

or Lemon Lime flasher, followed by

the green pistachio or green oil slick

hoochie. And on the river it’s been best

with bottom bouncers and bait. Or my

favourite technique lately has been float

fishing with bait. It’s always exciting to

see the bobber go down.

Hope that helps with your next fishing

adventure. Till the next report,

Tight lines….
