How to avoid spring cleaning stress

Many of us dread the pressure to do a major clean of your

home at this time of year. Although it’s a great way to boost

your confidence and gain pride in your space, it can feel like

a lot to take on. In fact, according to a recent survey commissioned

by Libman, a quarter of all respondents admitted that

spring cleaning overwhelms them.

Fortunately, there are some steps you can take to make

cleaning less distressing.

Plan your attack

It doesn’t matter where you start or end your spring cleaning

so long as you create a rough plan before you begin. That way

it’s easier to stay on task and avoid getting overwhelmed since

you know what you’ve done and where you’ll clean next.

Be realistic about the time you need for each task, and don’t

be afraid to schedule some of the larger ones across separate

days. This will give you more breathing room, so you’re not

stressed out trying to complete an impossible list in one go.

Get ready to compete

Whatever you can do to up the fun when it comes to cleaning

is fair game. It could be as elaborate as a family wide competition

for the most streak-free windows cleaned or as simple

as putting on your favourite tunes. Keeping your mood up and

your pace moving will take your mind off how much more you

still need to accomplish, and it will help you finish faster.

Reject perfection

Hailed as a time to refresh and reset, spring cleaning sometimes

feels like the one chance to get your home in order for

the rest of the year. But if that feeling leaves you overwhelmed,

remember that any cleaning you get done is better than not

cleaning at all; it doesn’t have to be done perfectly.

Assemble your tools

Having the right tools on hand helps ensure you’ll get the

job done with confidence. So, do an inventory of your supplies

and stock up before you begin. Look for environmentally sustainable

supplies and tools that are built with ergonomics and

efficiency in mind.

Walk for Alzheimer’s

National Volunteer Week at the end of April provides an

opportunity to recognize the key role volunteers play in Nelson

and other communities around the province.

This is especially true of the Alzheimer Society of BC’s flagship

fundraiser, the IG Wealth Management Walk for Alzheimer’s.

Every year, volunteer committees including one in

Nelson organize, promote, fundraise and build awareness

of the Walk and the cause. It is because of their commitment

and passion that the Alzheimer Society can run this successful

event to support crucial programs and services for British

Columbians affected by dementia.

“We are so grateful to all the volunteers who help with the

Walk. Every year, we are deeply impressed by the generosity

and dedication they display when it comes to supporting

British Columbians on the dementia journey,” says Cathryn

France, Director of Resource Development at the Alzheimer

Society of BC. “Our volunteers are the main force behind our

event. They raise awareness about the disease and they help us

make a difference in the lives of people affected by dementia.”

May 29, registrants will have the opportunity to win $1000.00.

can help. Call the First Link® Dementia Helpline at 1-800-936-

Quidditch, anyone?

It is certainly rare that a student can

read a book, and then fully immerse

themselves into that very fantastical

story-world.

‘Haghum School of Magical Beings’

offers youth aged 11-17 just such an

experience. Students engage in Harry

Potter themed activities based on JK

Rowling’s award-winning, world-renown

book series. While competing

for the prestigious 2022 HOUSE CUP

award, students rely on multi-aged

team-building to achieve success.

This year, based primarily on Book

II, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, event organizers

present activities very close to ‘the real thing’, including wandwork,

quests, House Elves, and Quidditch!

All fully-registered students receive precise event info via

Owl-POST in early June. Magical-school themed group activities

occupy the afternoon. Students celebrate together with an

evening vegetarian banquet in the Great Hall.

This is a popular annual dress-up event used as a fundraiser

for the Taghum Hall kitchen renovation project. Pre-registration

required before May 15. Event is scheduled for June 18,

Aspire to inspire

“Learning is not a

race for information;

it’s a walk of discovery”-Anonymous.

Discovery learning

is an educational

model that engages

students’ interest in

learning an objective

through the route of

exploration. Students

who use this model

to reach a learning

objective may attain a greater depth of understanding as they

have worked to discover the answers.

Trained teachers who can motivate and educate students

represent an honorary position in the workforce. After all,

teaching is the one profession that educates all other professions.

A Seven Summits Centre For Learning future graduate,

Regan Miller, is pursuing her passion for becoming a certified

teacher, and she is specifically interested in art studies.

“I love art because of the creative discovery process,” says

Miller. “My sketchpad is never very far away. Art is a great way

to express one’s self and find happiness in creative expression.

I want to become an art teacher to share my passion for art

with students who may not even know how good they are at

the different art techniques. Discovering hidden talents with

younger students who maybe thought they didn’t like art or

couldn’t draw is very rewarding.”

Miller has a keen interest in art. Her parents, too, are equally

interested in the art field. Her mother is an entrepreneur photographer,

and her father has painted since he was a child. “I

help out my mom at her photography studio. I love seeing how

happy it makes her and how she uses art to frame moments. It

is so natural for children to learn and be enthusiastic; I enjoy

the energy and want to be a part of the process.” As a teacher,

Miller seeks to positively impact students using her personality

and expertise in the classroom to mould young, curious,

impressionable minds about art and creativity.

As Miller puts it, “Teaching is more like a calling to a

profession than a job. I know it will be hard work, but I have

had some amazing role models that have shown me just how

essential it is to have teachers that support students, listen, and

respond to students’ needs, and I want to do that for students

in my future.”

Miller says that some planned time off before heading into

post-secondary schooling will give her time to reflect and make

important educational decisions. “I figure that the world will

always need teachers, and by learning the trade many opportunities

will become available to me, possibly even in different

parts of the world. There is so much to be excited about and

figure out. I will take some time to ‘draw’ my conclusions.”

On Monday, April 25, Trail City Council unanimously voted

to transition the community to 100% renewable energy no

later than 2050. Trail is the 13th community in the Kootenays

to commit to a healthy, safe, and secure community powered

by clean and renewable energy. Way to go, Trail!

Over the last year, I’ve connected with people across Trail

around our shared hope for a renewable energy transition.

Kyle lives in Trail with his family. He shared with me that summers

are getting hard for his family. Last summer, the wildfire

smoke worsened his wife’s asthma, and the heat dome made it

dangerous for his children to play outside. His family couldn’t

do the activities they love that bring them closer together. For

Kyle, a renewable energy transition means more quality time

with the people he loves and his family staying healthy and

safe. My conversation with Kyle showed me that government

action on climate change isn’t just about the environment, but

about living a happy, healthy, and secure life for every family.

I know that Kyle isn’t alone. Hundreds of Trail residents have

a similar story, many are feeling the impacts of climate change

already or are worried about a family member or neighbour.

Transitioning to 100% renewable energy is the common-sense

approach to protecting everyone against these impacts while

creating a healthy community with good-paying jobs.

Seeing the momentum in Trail keeps me hopeful. From

the City’s active transportation plan to making energy-efficient

upgrades to city infrastructure -- the energy transition is

already happening. Saying yes to a transition to 100% renewable

energy just makes sense.

CKISS seeking new board member

We’re looking for a new board member for the Central Kootenay

Invasive Species Society (CKISS) board—someone who

is interested in protecting the environment, working as a team

member, and can make a two-year commitment. As a member

of our board, you will attend quarterly board meetings, stand

on a committee and join other board members in guiding the

work of CKISS.

For more information and to download an application, visit

https://ckiss.ca. If you are not a member then register here

and indicate your interest in the board. If you are already a

member email or send in your application to info@ckiss.ca.

The deadline to apply is Friday May 6, 2022, at 5 pm.

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.

If interested, please contact Len Hewat

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!

Run like a mother for a good cause

Did you hear? Are you ready for it? The first annual Run

Like A Mother Half Marathon, 10 km and 5 km road race

is coming to Nelson on May 5. And the event will support a

good cause the Kootenay Kids Society.

The Half Marathon is a beautiful course that takes you to

all the gems of Nelson. You will experience Baker St, B.O.B

(our big orange bridge), Horlick Point, and the historic Great

Northern Rail Trail. This race starts and finishes at Hall St

Plaza. Nelson is known for its hills so be prepared to climb

1700 feet throughout the 21 km.

This 10 km race has some epic waterfront views along

Bealby rd where you turn around at Horlick Point and head

back downtown along the Fairview neighbourhood bikeway.

The 5K is a fun out-and-back run along Nelson’s new Fairview

to downtown neighbourhood bikeway.

Tick talk

Spring is here and the warmer weather means more people will

be out hiking in tall grass or wooded areas which can also mean

an increased chance of getting tick bites. Ticks are small bugs

that bite and feed on the blood of humans and animals and can

sometimes transmit disease. Fortunately, there are precautions

people can take to prevent illnesses that may be transmitted from

tick bites.

“There are easy things you can do to protect yourself from ticks

such as covering up before you head outdoors and checking for

ticks when returning from a walk, hike or bike ride,” said Dr.

Fatemeh Sabet, Interior Health medical health officer. “Most tick

bites do not result in illness; however, any bite from a tick should

be cleaned because infection can occur whenever there is a break

in the skin.”

Ticks also have toxins that can cause temporary muscle weakness

and paralysis if they are attached for several days especially

in children or seniors but the symptoms fade once the tick is

removed from the skin. The signs of many tick-borne infections

can be quite similar and include fever, headache, muscle pain and

rash.

One of the most important ways to reduce the risk of tick illnesses

is to do a skin check on yourself and your children after

being outdoors. As well, follow these additional precautions:

• Walk on cleared trails when in tall grass or wooded areas.

• Wear a hat, long sleeves, pants and light-coloured clothing.

• Tuck pant legs into socks or boots.

• Apply insect repellent containing DEET on uncovered

skin.

• Carefully check clothing and scalp (covered or not) when

leaving an area where ticks may live.

• Regularly check household pets for ticks.

If you find a tick on yourself, a family member or pet, wear

gloves when removing it and be careful not to crush the tick as

this could cause it to inject its stomach contents into your skin.

Other tips to remove ticks safely include:

• Use needle-nose tweezers to gently grasp the tick close to

the skin.

• Without squeezing, pull the tick straight out.

• After removal, clean the area with soap and water.

• If you find a tick, check very carefully for others.

You can report a tick and submit a photo to eTick.ca to have

it identified.

Most individuals with acute Lyme disease do not notice the

biting tick that precedes the illness. If you have concerns or need

assistance removing a tick, please contact your family doctor or

visit a walk-in medical clinic.

Quick facts:

While ticks are common in the Interior Health region, most

are the wood tick (Dermacentor andersoni) which do not carry

the Lyme disease bacteria. The wood tick can carry other diseases

such as Rocky Mountain spotted fever, although it is rare.

Lyme disease-carrying ticks (I. pacificus) are more common

in the coastal areas of BC. Anyone who has the typical bull’s-eye

target skin rash of Lyme disease, or other symptoms compatible

with Lyme disease, should see their physician.

Brandy is beautiful brindle 2-year-old girl that came in as a stray

from our area. We do not have any history on her as an owner

never came forward. She is very playful and full of energy.

She is good with dogs and kids, although she might be too

rambunctious for smaller children. She is a strong girl so we do

recommend some leash training, but she does well once you get

going. She loves spending time with people and would make a

lovely companion.

IDIDaRide Deets!

Trails for two of the three races are confirmed for July 3

iDIDaRide in Kaslo.

17 km: the mid range course, for both riders and runners.

Kaslo arena is the staging point this year and participants will

head west down Arena Ave and climb up into the True Blue

Trail system via the Hemlock network to the gravel pit. From

there you will follow Bjerkness Road and jump back onto

the trail system at Sourdough, through to Destiny Ridge,

the Connector and climb up to Strawberry Ridge. You will

descend from there and connect with Straight Face, on to

Look Waaay Up, and I’ll Call Rusty. You pop out on Lettrari

Loop and back to the Arena via Arena Ave.

This will be somewhat challenging and full on fun! There

will be an aid station with food and drinks at the bottom of

Strawberry Ridge

30 km: the long race is for riders only. It too will start at

the Kaslo Arena and head west on Arena Ave climbing the

Hemlock network to the gravel pit. Riders will then cross the

gravel pit to climb the short dirt road to ’N’ Zone, continuing

up Spanish Moss to Sleepy Hollow, onto the Connector,

Strawberry Ridge, Straight Face, then bounce out onto Bjerkness

Road. There is more excitement to be experienced after

this point, which will remain a secret until it is ready to be

revealed! It will include some black diamond rated sections

not overwhelming but a bit gitchy. There will be at least one

aid station with food and drinks on this course.

5-8 km: Head scratchin’ for the short course is still under

way. The plan is to have a user friendly (ride & run) 5 8

km route with limited climbing. Stay tuned for more info or

monitor the website if this is the event you are interested in.

www.iDIDaRide-kaslo.ca

Folks should know that iDIDaRide is a race but in fact

about 2/3 of participants are just looking to have a nice ride

or run on Kaslo’s amazing trail system. Everyone is welcome

no matter what your goal is!

Registration is open, just visit www.iDIDaRide-kaslo.ca

Details will continue to be updated.
