Here are a few things to keep in mind

before mowing your lawn for the first

time this spring.

If you’ve already tuned up your lawn

equipment or are in the market for

a new lawn mower, you’re probably

anxious to get out and start caring for

your yard. But before you do that, it’s

good to know when the right time is to

start mowing your lawn in the spring.

It’s not as simple as “when the grass

starts growing.”

Great advice

Great selection

Great products

It’s all here!

When can you start

mowing your lawn?

While the answer depends on your

part of the country and lawn type, the

general indicator will be how tall your

grass is. Most grass cutting heights are

between two and three inches, according

to Pennington’s full list. However,

there are exceptions. Just because the

grass is looking a little long doesn’t

mean it’s time to fire up the mower.

Wait until it’s warm enough to mow

regularly. If temperatures are expected

to drop below 5 degrees Celsius, you’re

probably not ready to start mowing

again.

mowing your lawn?

The ideal height

to cut grass

Figuring out the best height to cut grass

depends on the type of lawn you have. Typically

you should keep your grass about three

inches long, with the last cut of the season

taking it down to between 1.25 to 1.5 inches.

Cutting grass too short before the end of

the season can damage the soil and the lawn

mower itself. Short grass also will not do as

good of a job blocking the sun, which can dry

out the soil and create dead patches.

Best weather conditions

for mowing

It’s generally not a good idea to cut wet

grass after it rains, so mow when it’s sunny

or the ground is dry. Mowing wet grass is bad

for several reasons. Leaving clumps of wet

clippings could smother the grass beneath.

Wet grass can clog the mower, causing it to

overheat, and stick to the mower’s underside,

which is difficult to clean. And no matter

how much traction you think your shoes

have, you can easily slip on wet grass.

So don’t mow first thing in the morning

if the grass is damp with dew. Wait until the

lawn has dried out. Early evening is the optimal

mowing time since it allows the grass the

most shade to heal.

When to fertilize and

water your lawn

If you fertilize in both spring and fall, in

early spring apply just enough lawn fertilizer

to help green up your grass. A second application

can be added in mid to late spring. The

best time to fertilize your lawn in the fall is

around Labour Day.

Watering your lawn properly is

crucial for a lush look and feel. How

much water to use and how often you

should be watering your lawn depends

on your soil moisture, region, grass

type and other factors. Generally,

grass should be watered early in the

morning. Watering during the hottest

times of the day allows too much

water to evaporate. That’s the reason

most municipalities prohibit mid day

watering it’s wasteful. And watering

at night encourages the growth of

harmful fungi.

Linda Louise Brooks Gelinas

Anthony (Tony)

Sibilio Frary

June 19th, 1945

February 1st, 2022.

In loving memory of

our dear friend,

Linda Louise

Brooks Gelinas

October 19, 1948

April 4, 2022

A potluck

memorial will

be held in her

honour at the

Lardeau

Community Hall on

April 30 at 3:00 pm.

All are welcome

It is with great sadness

we announce the passing

of Tony Frary brother,

father, grandfather, uncle,

and friend.

Born in Los Angeles, CA,

to parents Ralph and Mary Frary, he grew up in Visalia,

CA, with his sister Florence and brother Ralph.

After graduating from Redwood High School (1963),

Tony furthered his education at the University of Notre

Dame (1963-67), UC Davis, and University of Toronto

(1976) where he received his Master of Science

in Urban and Regional Planning. After meeting and

marrying Candace in Toronto, they traveled around

the world visiting and living in New Zealand, Asia, and

Europe, before settling in Kaslo in the late 1970s and

raising their three children.

He had many jobs over the years spanning from communications

officer in the US Navy (1968-1974), urban

planner, Realtor, B & B owner, English teacher in

South Korea, and vehicle transporter to name a few. He

volunteered many hours to improve the community of

Kaslo, served as a councillor in the 1990s, and was an

active Legion member. Tony had a love of travel, adventure,

and foods of all kinds. A dreamer and an optimist,

he loved to talk about politics and current events,

and to plan adventures with family, friends, or solo.

His greatest love and proudest accomplishment were

his children (Lindsay, Heather, and Christopher), and

8 grandchildren. A true gentleman, he will be remembered

for his kindness and generosity.

A celebration of life is planned for Saturday, April 23rd,

at the Kaslo Legion Hall, between 2 and 4 pm.

West Kootenay Loop Fuel Economy Test

We did it the old fashioned way! We recorded the kilometres on

a vehicle fueled to the brim at the Trail Husky. We then drove

through Castlegar to Nelson and back to Trail through Salmo.

At the same Husky we filled up the car again and calculated the

fuel economy based on litres used and difference in kilometres.

To whom it may concern,

I was asked by Dan Ashman to test the fuel efficiency of the 2016 F150

models with different engines.

The route I took with each truck was from the Trail Husky gas station (right

after fill up); to Castlegar, then to Nelson, then to Salmo and finished my

trip back at the Husky gas station in Trail. This is where I filled the trucks up

again, and proceeded to do the calculations based on the number of litres it took

to refill the truck. The 3.5L EcoBoost engine was done the middle of April 2016 with

the 3.5L and the 2.7L EcoBoost done on May 5th 2016 and the 5.0L done on May 24,

2016. The results of the calculations were as follows:

2016 F150 3.5L Ecoboost

2016 F150 3.5L

2016 F150 2.7L Ecoboost

2016 F150 5.0L V8

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.

Young visions reveal the future

West Kootenay youth Stanley Humphries, Kootenay Columbia

Learning Centre (both Trail and Castlegar) and Rossland

Summit School are featuring their art in the annual Young

Visions exhibition. It opens Thursday, April 21 at 7 pm at the

Kootenay Gallery of Art in Castlegar. Everyone is welcome to

attend the free opening event.

“This is my favourite show of the year” says Val Field,

Executive Director of the Gallery. “It is such a pleasure to see

the creativity and hard work of our local students. The variety

and quality of the artwork is outstanding” Gallery Curator,

Maggie Shirley agrees with Field and adds, “It is a pleasure to

focus on local talent and to provide the youth with an opportunity

to get the experience of having work professionally presented

in an art show. I secretly hope that this is the beginning

of at least one art career and that I’ll see their work back in the

Gallery again some day in the future. ”

The Gallery is grateful to School District 20 for making the

show possible and in particular to teachers Shelley Painter,

Bryar-Anne Woods, Michelle Reddick, and more. Shirley says

“We appreciate the effort of the art teachers to provide the students

with this community-enhancing experience. Like most

teachers, they go above and beyond their job expectations to

support the students. ” The show is supported by School District

20, the BC Arts Council,

Copper

Copper is a sweet 8 year old German shepherrd husky mix.

He loves his people and walkies. A very happy boy, he was

surrendered because his owner could no longer care for him.

Copper had some ongoing health issues, but now that he is

on the mend, we would love to find him a forever home.

He is dog selective and seems to prefer females. Who could

resist those bright blue eyes!

Debris Pick-up in

Kaslo starts April 25!

The Village of Kaslo will be picking up organic yard and

residents tidy up yards and adjacent boulevards starting on

Monday, April 25 for lower Kaslo, and south of Kaslo River

compostable bags available for purchase in quantity at local

retail outlets;

• bundled. Small branches must be cut to lengths less than 6 feet and

bundled.

Village of Kaslo receives nearly

$1 million grant

The Village of Kaslo is the beneficiary of a significant grant

towards turning a downtown heritage building into a modern

information-technology and business incubator hub. The

building and courthouse constructed in 1911 that the Village

purchased from the province in 2007. This Rural Development

grant through the Community Economic Recovery Infrastructure

Program enables the Village to move ahead with muchneeded

renovations on an amazing community asset.

Kaslo has risen above the provincial and national efforts

to connect rural communities with high-speed broadband.

The village and surrounding area are served by a network

of fibre-optic cables operated by the Kaslo InfoNet Society

(“KiN”), that terminates in the basement of this building.

There, a server cluster offering cloud storage is connected to

a fibre-optic “backbone” running beneath the pristine waters

of Kootenay Lake, connecting Kaslo to anywhere in the world.

The Village and KiN recently partnered to install reliable

backup power for the building to keep the network running

during the remote community’s sometimes lengthy outages.

Village council formed a COVID-19 Response & Recovery

Committee in the pandemic’s early days to identify long-term

opportunities for economic and social recovery, leveraging

Kaslo’s competitive advantage as a tech-hub, and provided support

for a new co-working space in the building, now the Kootenay

Lake Innovation Centre. But the building is showing its

age with unreliable heat, drafty windows, structural concerns,

shabby interior, and lacking accessibility. The grant enables the

Village to tackle these problems and transform this imposing

brick and stone beauty into a modern house for high-tech

innovation and business start-ups.

“We are so happy and can’t wait to see this important heritage

building become revitalized,” said Kaslo’s mayor, Suzan

Hewat. “The Village bought the Kemball to ensure its preservation,

but it’s been a struggle to keep it up. Now we know its

future is bright, as is Kaslo’s.”

The Village acknowledges the initial work of Randy Morse,

the BC Rural Centre’s former communications director, in

pursuing this grant opportunity. “The BC Rural Centre is

pleased to have been able to help the Village in accessing this

new infrastructure funding and looks forward to continuing

to assist the Village. Projects like this can help stimulate and

accelerate new economic growth and diversification opportunities

in small rural communities,” said Gordon Borgstrom,

former executive director of the BC Rural Centre.
