SROAMazing Race at Whitewater

Selkirk College students in the Ski

Resort Management & Operations

Program are hosting the annual

SROAMazing Race at Whitewater

Ski Resort on Sunday, March 28.

Bring your best costumes and

enthusiasm for a great day at the hill.

With the countdown to the

end of the Whitewater Ski

Resort season on, Selkirk College

students in the Ski Resort

Management & Operations

(SROAM) Program are inviting

fresh air lovers to take one

last shot at amazing.

The Nelson-based SROAM

Program is in its 40th year

of providing the education

and training for bright ski

industry futures. As part

of semester-end assignments,

first-year students are

once again organizing the

SROAMazing Race that takes

place on Sunday, March 28. A

full day of activities includes

a scavenger hunt, costume

contest, skin-to-win race and

video contest. With a deep list

of local sponsors, the day also

carries promise of plenty of

terrific prizes.

This year’s SROAMazing

Race is adding environmental

awareness to the day’s activities

with focus on POW (Protect

Our Winters) Canada,

a national organization with

a mission to turn passionate

outdoor people in effective

climate advocates. All money

raised will go towards POW’s

efforts towards sustainability

of the outdoor industry.

“Without snow, we obviously

wouldn’t be able to

continue participating in

these beloved sports, so it’s

important to do our job

as a collective to create a

change,” says Jones.

The activities run between

10 am and 3 pm. The skinto-win

race will take place

on Sluice Box, where students

encourage people to

bring their skins and get

their game face on. The

annual scavenger hunt will

be set up for teams of two

all over the mountain and

participants can arrive anytime

to take part in the hunt.

The video contest is looking

to hear from people in two

minutes or less about what

they are doing in your daily

lives to help protect our winters.

Don’t forget your costumes,

there are some sweet

prizes for the best dressed.

“The day will feature all

of the activities and with

the help of some wonderful

sponsors, the SROAM

team will be giving out some

spectacular prizes too,”

says Jones. “Last year,

COVID-19 unfortunately put

a halt on the 2020 class’s race,

so we are feeling very eager

to get things rolling again.

Alongside the province’s regulations,

the class has ensured

that all COVID protocols are

up to standard and that participants

can be confident in

their health and safety

during the day.”

Participants can register

and find more information

by heading to the

SROAMazing Race 2021

Facebook page (https://

www.facebook.com/

SroamazingRace) or by

emailing SROAMazingrace2021@gmail.com.

“The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted

our lives in countless ways. To keep each

other safe, we have had to limit activities that

are fundamental to our normal way of life,”

said Premier John Horgan. “While we are

not out of the woods yet,

there is hope on the horizon

and we are now ready to,

gradually and safely, resume

some of these activities. That

includes getting young people back on the ice

this season.”

The revised plan from the BCHL has

improved safety protocols in place including

health screening and testing, limited travel,

“pod” cities and a pre-season quarantine

plan. Protocols are also in place to limit interactions

between players, coaches and staff

from the BCHL, and the communities they

play in. The five pods will be located in Penticton,

Coquitlam, Chilliwack, Vernon and

Port Alberni.

“Sports are important for young people’s

development and we understand how hard

the time away from friends and teammates

has been,” said Adrian Dix, Minister of

Health. “I know that Dr. Henry and her team

are working hard to determine how to safely

return more leagues back to the field of play

this spring.”

The one-time variances to the gathering

and events order to allow the league to return

to play may be amended based on the latest

COVID-19 data and modelling.

Selkirk College Music Showcase

Contemporary Music & Technology Program

student Katie Keeling is one of the second-year

students who will be performing virtually on March

22 starting at 7 pm

Pushed online due to the pandemic, students

in the Selkirk College Contemporary

Music & Technology Program are undeterred

as they get set to welcome the widest audience

ever for annual year-end showcase concerts.

A tradition that spans more than three

decades of learning on Nelson’s Tenth Street

Campus, students on the cusp of graduation

will take part in three diverse evenings of

virtual concerts that are open to music lovers

everywhere. The student showcases will

cap off a most unusual year of learning for

post-secondary students in all programs.

“The pandemic has suspended most live

performances this past year, but amidst the

challenges comes opportunity,” says Melody

Diachun, one of the instructors who oversees

the showcase concerts. “Students in our

program have responded with remarkable

resilience. Instead of giving into the barriers

that exist in their learning, practicing and

performing, these talented musicians have

shown energy and creativity that is inspiring.

They have adapted and it’s exciting that they

will have a chance to perform to an online

audience.”

Offered entirely online this year through

synchronous learning due to the restrictions

of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Contemporary

Music & Technology Program has students

located across the country and around

the world. Though adapted to mesh with the

available technology, instructors have provided

the education and training that meets

the expected outcomes of learners.

The annual year-end showcases are usually

presented at the Shambhala Music & Performance

Hall on the Tenth Street Campus and

are an important measure of academic

progress and an entertaining display of

newly acquired skills.

This year’s showcase concerts feature

a wide range of genres and exceptional

talent. Student artists include Tristan

Shears, Katie Keeling, Aden Goertzen,

Jake Kostuchuk, Susannah Bigler, Talel

McBriar, Nathan Blacklock and Grace

Clark along with supporting musicians

from their classes.

Enjoy eight virtual concerts presented

over three nights in late-March:

• Monday, March 22 - 7 pm

• Wednesday, March 24 - 7 pm

• Friday, March 26 - 7 pm

Students will introduce their showcase

in real-time and then viewers can expect

a mix of performances and recordings

accompanied by visual elements.

Performing students are taking advantage

of technology in bringing a new

kind of viewing experience. Blacklock’s band

features a fantastic lineup of Selkirk College

musicians who have been separated across

the country by the pandemic, but brought

back together virtually through the means of

today’s technology.

“In these days of virtual concerts, the lack

of a dance floor is of great concern,” Blacklock

says of his showcase on March 26. “It

is strongly suggested that listeners find their

nearest family

member,

roommate

or broomstick

to use

as a dance

partner. If

dancing isn’t

your bag,

then simply

sit back,

tap your

foot, and

enjoy some

of the complimentary

imaginary

virtual

popcorn.”

preventing the spread of COVID-19 on BC

campuses. While we update the guidelines

to ensure on-campus safety, I encourage

students and families to start planning for

in-person instruction on a campus of their

choice in September.”

Selkirk College is currently operating 30

per cent of its educational delivery in-person,

through various programs on different campuses.

Following provincial protocols, the

college’s health and safety plan has been successfully

tested with results that provide confidence

moving forward into the next stage of

pandemic recovery.

“It has been a difficult 12 months for our

college, but students, faculty and staff have

proven their resilience as we have all continue

to work towards desired outcomes in

a most unusual year,” says Rhys Andrews,

Selkirk College’s Vice President of Education.

“Students have said to us that the

in-person element of their education

is vital. We are encouraged

that we can now prepare plans

for programs that previously

had in-person learning. This

will give new and returning students

an experience that

meshes with

the overall

provincial

landscape in

September.”

The expected

immunization

timelines for

the COVID-19

virus currently

project that all vulnerable and high-risk

groups should have the vaccine by spring.

The majority of the adult population in British

Columbia is expected to have access to

immunization by the start of most Selkirk

College programs in September.

Health and safety protocols will remain

the priority at Selkirk College with reducing

the opportunity for infectious contacts a key

component to revised plans. With the safety

of all who arrive on campuses the number-one

priority, what will remain in place

is the now-familiar prevention activities of

self-administered health checks, facilitating

hand cleaning through access to soap and

water, encouraging the use of hand sanitizers,

use of masks, physical distancing, early

detecting and rapid testing, and case and

contact management.

As the college moves forward in its planning

for a safe return to campus in September

2021, there will be further details on what

this means for specific programs, services

and activities provided in the coming weeks.

To continue meeting its strategic goals of

access, Selkirk College will also incorporate

what has been learned over the last year with

regards to providing delivery of programming

that is available to a wider cohort of

students.

“I have been inspired by the ability of our

faculty and staff to adapt to the situation while

continuing to ensure that students are delivered

the education and training they need

to succeed after graduation,” says Andrews.

“We have learned so much about different

ways to deliver programs and new light has

been shed on how we can provide even better

services that will enable learner success. The

institution will take what it has learned over

the last year, add it to what has been proven

successful in the past, and provide an in-person

Zebra mussels found

in moss balls

Anyone who has a moss ball in their aquarium

is being asked to inspect the plant for invasive

zebra mussels now that the highly invasive

species has been found in a number of locations

throughout the province.

During the past weekend, conservation

officers conducted more than 600 inspections

at retail aquatic pet and plant stores and

found zebra mussels in moss balls at multiple

locations.

Zebra mussels pose a major threat if released

into a BC waterway. The tiny mussels can wreak

havoc on aquatic ecosystems because they

multiply rapidly and are extremely difficult to

eradicate.

The Conservation Officer Service (COS) is

investigating how widespread the problem of

mussel-infested moss balls may be in the province.

The COS is working with ministry science

experts, Canadian and US counterparts, industry

retailers and distributors to help prevent any

potential spread of invasive zebra mussels. To

date, there has been no reported introduction of

live zebra mussels into BC lakes or waterways.

The moss balls, which are often sold as

marimo moss balls, are species of green algae

typically purchased for aquariums to improve

water quality. Moss balls can also be purchased

online.

Anyone who finds zebra mussels can call the

bringing the total funds raised by the club to

over $9,000.

Each team member put in some serious distance.

The youngest team member, Maya Abraham,

15, skied 50km on the day with her mom,

Doris Hausleitner. Meanwhile, Richmond

skied 100km with other team members Travis

Hauck and James Crossman. Andrew Earnshaw

rounded out the group, skiing 50 km.

Each year Coldest Night of Year awards those

individual fundraisers who raise over $1000 a

coveted gold button. Well, both Richmond and

Many seed brands in stock NOW:

West Coast, Pacific Northwest ,

McKenzie, Weston (Emanuele Larosa)

Hundreds of choices.

Shop early for best selection.

Earnshaw could be sporting 3 of these button,

each raising more than $3000 to support their

team and the work on Nelson CARES Society.

This year’s Nelson CARES Society CNOY

fundraising campaign blew the roof off the

previous fundraising numbers. This is the case

nationally, as well, with many of the 149 other

CNOY locations across the country reporting

record fundraising totals. Nelson ranked 31st

out of those 149 locations on dollars raised.

The Coldest Night of the Year fundraising

event fully funds the Nelson CARES Society’s

‘Ready For Home’ program. At the core of

‘Ready For Home’ is a full-time paid staff member

who works one-on-one with individuals to

maintain their health and housing and prevent

homelessness. This program assists Nelson

CARES tenants with life skills development,

connection to health services, employment and

income support... anything that will help these

residents stay housed in their affordable unit

and off the streets.

Nelson CARES Society preserves, maintains,

and develops safe affordable housing, but sometimes

a place to live is not enough and people

need some support to maintain that housing.

Nelson CARES Society Executive Director

Jenny Robinson says “Every year our gratitude

grows for the community support we receive

for CNOY, it is truly amazing. The funds go to

support individuals to escape homelessness and

stay housed.”

to work with local companies and to

use local resources to build the community

housing complex. SHARE Housing

“Wherever possible, we have used

Kootenay products and companies for

this project. For example, one of the

great features of the building are the

beams and panels for the complex that

come from Kalesnikoff ’s new mass timber

facility,” Reimer said.

Ken Kalesnikoff, president and CEO

of Kalesnikoff, said: “There is an obvious

need for projects like this in our

community, and we are thrilled to be

involved. We commend the Kootenay

their leadership, and their efforts to

bring this housing complex to life.”

only once in each row, column and box. You

can fi gure 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!

Public engagement is an integral part of the Columbia Basin

Trust Community Initiatives and Affected Areas Program Funding

(CIP/AAP) process. Normally, public input into the grant

awards would be received at community meetings held throughout

the Regional District of Central Kootenay every April. However,

due to the ongoing restrictions on public gatherings, the

online engagement tool will be utilized again this year to ensure

the grant process moves forward. This tool will allow the public to

provide their feedback on proposed projects for the area in which

they live.

In 2020, the online engagement tool was very successful as a

total of four thousand seven hundred and thirty (4730) entries

were received. Once the public engagement period was complete,

all feedback was shared with the adjudication committee of each

of the 20 RDCK jurisdictions (11 electoral areas and nine municipalities)

for their review and consideration. The adjudication

committees then provided their recommendations to the RDCK

Board of Directors.

Please note the online engagement tool is not a voting system,

but a way for the public to provide the feedback on projects they

feel are most important to the area they live in.

The public engagement period will be from March 29, 2021 at

8:00 am to April 9, 2021 at 4:30 pm.

To participate in the public engagement process, please visit the

RDCK website at www.rdck.ca/cip-aap on or after March 29th.

Free talk on wills and estates

Most of us don’t like to think about our eventual demise, and

yet we care about what happens after we’re gone. The Nelson Public

Library hosts a free evening dedicated to Wills and Estates presented

by Nelson lawyer Troy Trillo on Thursday, April 8, at 7pm

on Zoom. Email hgoldik@nelson.ca to register.

Troy’s talk will look at a number of common questions, including:

Do I need a Will? Can my Will be challenged if I don’t provide

for my children equally? How long can I tie up my kids’ inheritance?

Does having a blended family make a difference to my

Will? What is a Power of Attorney? Doesn’t a Power of Attorney

cover health care matters? Do I need a Representation Agreement?

There will be time set aside after the talk for additional

questions.

Troy’s practice is focused primarily on solicitor’s work, including

Wills & Estates, Corporate and Commercial, and Real Estate

law. Trillo graduated from the Faculty of Law at UBC in 1999 with

a Juris Doctor and is a partner in the law firm Connolly, Trillo &

Yates.

The Library invites people of all ages and stages of life to

come and learn about this important topic.

So you want to be in pictures?

The future of screen-based production in

the West Kootenay just got a little brighter.

Your chances of being involved in filmmaking

are now better than ever since the Civic

Theatre and Kootenay Rockies Tourism have

announced the formation of the new Kootenay

Regional Film Commission.

The new film commission will design strategies

and opportunities for economic development

through increased capacity in film

service and attraction for the region. This

collaboration will create economic benefits

for both the film and tourism industries. The

commission is supported through provincial

funding from Creative BC,and the province

also provides funding to the partners through

BC Arts Council and the Regional Destination

Marketing Organization.

The new Kootenay Regional Film Commission

will

• be the first point of contact for all

Kootenay region film-related issues and

activities,as one of the eight

regional film commissions

collaborating with the provincial

film commission at Creative BC;

• market activities for production attraction

to the region, in collaboration with

tourism strategies and activities; and

• develop regional film resources including

the locations library,crew and

supply company database, and filming

activity reporting and tracking.

The Kootenay Regional Film Commission

is a partnership between The Civic Theatreand

Kootenay Rockies Tourism. These two

organizations bring knowledge, expertise and

capacity in the fields of tourism and destination

management, economic development,

film presentation and production, community

program and service provision, and

respective local, national and international

networks in their fields. This partnership

offers full regional coverage, facilitating cohesive

communication and ease of logistics for

production across a large, low-density area of

British Columbia.

Interested applicants for the Kootenay

Film Commissioner position, may find

film-commissioner-for-the-kootenay-region-job

Since the official launch of The Civic Theatre’s

Kootenay Screen-Based Industry program

in 2016, there has been growing interest

from regional stakeholders to proactively

increase regional capacity to provide film

commission services, to market the region

to outside producers and production companies,

and to further develop the local Kootenay

screen-based industry.

The Civic Theatre and Kootenay Rockies

Tourism are strong partners with history

in the region as established and trusted

resources that value teamwork, inclusive

practices, and innovation. Whereas Kootenay

Rockies Tourism brings an established

and professional tourism network to leverage

marketing of the region for film, The Civic

Theatre brings a growing and recognized

local crew base network formed to provide

Throwing together a ceramics

show at Touchstones

Nelson Museum

There may be few common threads between the artists showcased

in THROWN, the latest group exhibition opening at

Touchstones Nelson Museum, but one thing they all share is a

love for ceramics.

The show, which runs March 13 to May 29, is a group exhibition

featuring a diverse cross-section of artists from across the

country, all of which offer a distinct and exemplary approach to

ceramics. Featured in the show are Samantha Dickie, an abstract

assemblage artist from Victoria, BC; John Kuroc, an artist from

Rankin Inlet, Nunavut, specializing in hand-built forms; Shary

Boyle, an artist of many mediums who explores the fantastical

potential of the human form; Jody Greenman-Barber, whose

delicate works find inspiration from dance and movement; Sergio

Raffo, a Kaslo resident of Cuban origin who works in both

human and architectural forms; Robin Dupont, a specialist in

atmospheric firing techniques and a skilled kiln-builder; and

Rory Macdonald, an artist and professor at the Nova Scotia

College of Art and Design, whose work blurs the line between

installation and intervention.

“These types of medium-centric group exhibitions create an

opportunity for a rare form of dialogue amongst the participating

artists, even in times when active mentorship and collaboration

are not possible, as the respective works speak so

strongly of perspective and means and method,” says Touchstones

Nelson Curator Arin Fay. THROWN, Fay explains, is

the second iteration of an ongoing series of medium-centric

exhibitions which was inspired by Lost Thread, a well-received

group textile show mounted in 2018 which highlighted six textile

artists from across the nation, but with a very specific focus

on regional Kootenay artists, and with “the same eye to diversity

of expression and methodology,” she adds. “This formula

of curating exhibitions gives us the opportunity to include ‘our’

artists in wide-ranging cultural and creative conversations,

within a Canadian context.”

This project is being supported through a Canada Council

grant and has partnered with Selkirk College and Medalta

in Medicine Hat. This exhibition project will support a tour

to Medalta in the Summer of 2021, a publication, and online

programming.

and programming at Touchstones Nelson Museum, visit

Fruitvale commits to 100% renewable energy

After asking all the important questions,

digging deeper into the opportunities,

and seeing their residents show

their support, the Village of Fruitvale

became the 10th West Kootenay local

government to make the commitment

to 100% renewable energy by 2050.

“I am really excited and proud that

our Fruitvale team voted unanimously

to be a part of this positive movement

to help address climate change. Fruitvale

is a very tiny place in the world,

but I know if each of us do all we can

in our area of influence, we will make

a huge difference to the health of our

ecosystems and people worldwide,” says

Mayor Steve Morissette.

The village council’s vote to support

the transition to 100% renewable

energy included direction for the community’s

next steps: to collaborate with

experts and residents to develop a plan

by June 2022 for the village’s transition.

Lynette Harper is a Fruitvale resident

who wrote letters to her village council

encouraging them to make the commitment

to 100% renewable energy and a

safer, healthier community.

“It’s so exciting to add this to the

great list of initiatives that Fruitvale has

already begun,” she says.

“I am so inspired by Fruitvale’s leadership

and perseverance. In only a few

months, the council and community of

Fruitvale came together and supported

each other in reaching this goal. Fruitvale

is setting the path forward for other

small and rural communities like theirs

to live healthier, safer and cleaner lives,”

says Natasha Edmunds, organizing

director at West Kootenay EcoSociety.

Fruitvale joins the nine West Kootenay

governments that have already

made the commitment to 100% renewable

energy and recently developed

the West Kootenay 100% Renewable

Energy Plan: Rossland, Warfield, Kaslo,

Castlegar, New Denver, Silverton, Slocan,

Nelson, and the RDCK.

Oxygen celebrates National Poetry Month!

2.5” x 5”

Starting

in February

and running

through to the end of April,

Nelson’s Oxygen Art Centre

is proud to offer online poetry

classes for poets and poetry

lovers of all levels. Instructor

Rayya Liebich will help

demystify reading and writing

poetry, and to share the

“delight in language play, have

fun creating poems collaboratively,

and most importantly

discover that poetry is a gift for

everyone.” says Rayya, who is

offering three different classes:

Be Not Afeard: A Poetry Workshop

for Beginners, Tapping the

Poetic Unconscious, and April

Poetry Challenge: 30 Days, 30

Poems!

Oxygen officially kicks off

their 2021 National Poetry

Month celebrations with an

online event featuring poetry

and music to take on the dark

times Canadian are enduring.

On Wednesday March 31 at 7

pm Winlaw author Tom Wayman

and Vernon author and

musician John Lent present

“Dark Times Come Again No

More” on Zoom. R.S.V.P. to attend by

emailing info@oxygenartcentre.org.

Following this event, join Susan

Andrews Grace in Reading and

Writing Rilke throughout April. This

course will employ close reading of

Rainer Marie Rilke’s poetry as inception

for the participants’ own composition.

There will be exploration of

sound, rhythm, image, and mystery/

soul in Rilke.

“For a long while, I’ve wanted to

offer a course on Rilke that looks

very closely at the text in order to

learn more about writing,” shares

Susan. “Rilke bears close reading.

The writing in class will use the Practice

of the Outside, posited by Jack

Spicer, an American poet. In the

class we will not be workshopping

writing but rather spending all our

time on reading and writing. It will

be process-centred.”

During these difficult pandemic

times we are all missing spending

time with our friends and family, so

take an online course together! Oxygen

is now offering a 10% discount

for bringing a friend to any art class.

Alternatively, give the gift of creativity

with the new Oxygen Education

Gift Certificate.

in just seven years. Sadly, most of them end up

abandoned at BC SPCA shelters or condemned to a

grim life on the streets. Be responsible - don’t litter.

Fellow Sportsmen & Women:

The new generation of scientists tell us the best thing we evil humans

can do is stay behind the glass, away from nature. We apparently

have no right to “manage” nature. We should close all the roads we

use to recreate on because our pick-ups, quads, bikes,and snowmobiles

will kill every critter we encounter. Even Caribou where there are

no Caribou. This is happening across BC as more and more land is

“parked”, based on the incorrect assumption that parks are “good,

roads are bad for wildlife”. Meanwhile, the species

that many of us hunt - elk, deer, moose, sheep - are

declining, while wolves, coyotes, bears [mainly grizzlies]

and cougars become more populous.

We need access to control predators. We need game

management to ensure we have healthy populations

of big game, while maintaining sufficient access to

our natural resources, which most rural families depend

on for employment.

Human impact on nature is not always positive but

neither is human interaction with nature always negative.

Active management through hunting, trapping

and harvesting timber etc. is essential. The idea that

nature will balance itself without human intervention

is absurd. Forest harvesting provides large quantities

of food for numerous species, especially when controlled

burns are used following the forest harvest.

When large areas are closed to human activities to

protect Caribou, you can be assured the Caribou will

decline like Spatsizi Park, many other National Parks,

along with the end of the Selkirk & Purcell woodland

Caribou. These areas become predator pits, wolves,

cougars Classifieds and bears love these no-go Classifieds zones. This is a

Classifieds Classifieds Classifieds

fact IF THESE AREAS WERE OPENED AND PROPERLY

MANAGED WE MAY STILL HAVE OUR CARIBOU TO-

DAY. We invite you to become a “CONSERVATION

PARTNER” with the Kootenay Wildlife Heritage Fund Society TODAY!
