Events get a boost

New Democrat MLA Brittny Anderson says that people will

be able to enjoy more live music events and performances this

year thanks to the BC New Democrat government’s continued

support of artists and the live music sector throughout BC.

“Most of us feel so fortunate to have such a vibrant music and

arts scene here in the Kootenays, and so many of us craved live

music during the pandemic. I know folks are looking forward

to getting back to our favourite music venues and festivals!” said

Brittny Anderson, MLA for Nelson-Creston. “Our government

knows how much these events mean to people, and how much

we’ve been missing them, and this funding will help make sure

that we can all get back to enjoying amazing times together.”

NOW SHOWING AT

GEAR by Bettina Matzkuhn

Textile artist Bettina Matzkuhn

examines the human presence in

the backcountry by deconstructing

outdoor gear and reconstructing it

with the addition of embroidered

imagery. Gear features interactive

pieces revealing the artist’s response

to the role of outdoor gear in the

consumption, promotion and

diminishment of natural spaces.

GALLERIES

Gallery hours Thursday Sunday 1 4pm

447 A Avenue Kaslo, BC • 250-353-2661

www.thelangham.ca • langham@netidea.com

Showing from May 13th till July 17th

In her new body of work Violent

Femme, Nelson artist Branda

Christoffersen explores her path

through womanhood. Using line and

color she investigates love, rejection,

and becoming a mother.

Please observe COVID protocols while visiting the galleries.

is the BEST! $ 249

Now in stock and on display!

Region receiving funding include the Kaslo Jazz Etc. Society,

Shambhala Music Festival Ltd., Bloom Nightclub Inc., and the

Langham Cultural Society.

The funding comes from an additional $2.5 million investment

from the BC New Democrat government to Amplify BC

to support music companies and live operations. Amplify BC

is British Columbia’s music fund delivered through Creative

BC, the Province’s lead agency for creative sector funding and

development.

This $2.5 million supplement to the $22.5 million already

being delivered over three years demonstrates our government’s

recognition of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic

on live music performances and the music industry, and the

sacrifices that were made to keep us safe.

Having worked in the UK, New Zealand,

Norway, and even the “Valley of Giants” in

Australia, I came to Canada. After working

for a year at the coast, with some of

the largest trees in Canada, I moved to

the Nelson area. I started this business

and found hard-working like-minded

professionals to join me.

We know trees.

We provide:

• FireSmart property management

• experienced climbing arborists

• tree pruning, fruit bearing and others

• hedge maintenance

• technical tree removal

• crane assisted removals

• emergency work, 24/7 call-outs

• post storm cleanup work

• wood chipper and dump truck

We are insured, WorksafeBC registered

Highly recommend! Jay took down

two large trees for me and he did

an amazing job! Very professional

as well as fast and efficient!

Thank you! ~ Terisa Janni, Fruitvale

Jay does an excellent job. He and

his helper just removed an awkward

maple and did a bunch of

pruning on our property in Kaslo.

Can’t recommend him highly

enough! ~ Rod Dunnett, Kaslo

Jay does a great job!

Really professional and very

skilled.

~ Cody Crawford, Trail

Jay is fantastic.

Highly recommend him.

He fell three large birches near our

house. He’s insured and quick.

Top fella.

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!

Cease Wyss, as well as a temporary library presented both

online and in person that will be linked with an online reading

group.

The exhibition features Garden-Smith’s pigment stained

gelatin lamp shades, In A Hare’s Form (2021), and a new

site-specific gelatin installation that will shift throughout

the exhibition’s duration. Through a form of alchemy, Garden-Smith

transforms plant materials from detritus to sculptural

blossoms. Theresa Wang describes the decorative light

fixtures as suspending “various dried and pressed flora collected

on the artist’s walks over the seasons, bringing (once)

living things into the living milieu. In this way, these works

consider ornamentation as not only a way to confound the

passage of time, but also as a record of the durational and

interspatial acts of foraging, gathering, and conserving.”

T’uy’t’tanat-Cease Wyss will develop an herbarium during

their time in the region. The herbarium will feature plant matter

Indigenous to the region, as well as printed takeaways for

visitors to create their own herbarium at home. In addition,

Wyss transforms the small garden bed outside Oxygen’s facility,

extending the exhibition outdoors.

In writing about Wyss’s permaculture space in x̱ aw̓ s

shew̓ áy̓ New Growth (2019), Oscar Domingo Rajme observes

that it “is a space where alternative forms of working and

being together are not only made possible through the garden’s

intention of being a communal place, but especially

through what its existence implies. For a moment, it has broken

the city’s colonial architectural desire to normalize the

theft of land and to erase the histories and traditions of the

Coast Salish peoples.”

dig a hole in the garden also features a temporary library in

the gallery space featuring texts that will be discussed through

a reading group that will meet all five Wednesdays throughout

the exhibition. Notes from the reading group discussions, as

well as access to readings will be available on Oxygen’s website

and on site.

The exhibition is co-curated by Greta Hamilton and Julia

Prudhomme, and will be on view from 11 June 16 July 2022.

Oxygen Art Centre is an artist-run centre located at #3-320

Vernon Street, Nelson, BC via alleyway entrance. The exhibition

will be open to the public Wednesdays to Saturdays from

1 to 5 pm. Prior to your visit please review Oxygen’s COVID-

19 prevention protocols on their website.

Expect high lake levels

FortisBC Inc (FortisBC) and the Regional District of Central

Kootenay (RDCK) are notifying property owners along

Kootenay Lake that due to above normal snowpack and

delayed melt, there is an increased possibility that flooding

could occur during late May or early June if temperatures rise

substantially.

As of May 19, the lake level at Queen’s Bay was 1743.52

feet. It’s expected to rise two to three feet over the next week.

Although lake levels are forecasted to remain below the 1752

feet flood level, the lake is subject to large natural inflows of

water as a result of melting snow pack and precipitation. This

means conditions could change suddenly over the next few

weeks.

Power generation facilities like FortisBC’s Corra Linn Dam

play a key role in managing lake levels. Since the beginning

of March, FortisBC has discharged the maximum amount

of water from Corra Linn. However, at this time, Grohman

Narrows, a natural geological formation located upstream of

Ainsworth Hot Springs Resort is hiring!

Full-time and Part-time employment available

• Store discount

• Health Benefits

Qualities we are looking for:

• The ability to communicate with all kinds of people

• Professional and positive attitude

• Strong attention to detail

• Reliable team player: punctual, consistent, dedicated

Seasonal positions.

To apply, please send your resume and an introduction

via email to hr@ainsworthhotsprings.com

FortisBC facilities, is restricting water flowing out of Kootenay

Lake.

Opioid use treatment available at 3 West Kootenay hospitals

Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital

emergency department nurses: Jane Carlton,

Tamara Roscoe, Teresa Myers,

and Emily Larochelle.

Opioid use disorder (OUD) is a treatable

medical condition. And, yet, many

people living with OUD don’t have a

regular care provider who can help connect

them to medication. For many, their

first exposure to treatment is through an

emergency department (ED).

Given the increasing number of toxic

drug deaths across BC 2,224 in 2021

according to the BC Coroner’s Service

Interior Health’s Emergency Services

and Mental Health and Substance Use

networks partnered in June 2021 to

connect people experiencing opioid use

disorder with Suboxone in emergency

departments. Suboxone is an Opioid

Agonist Treatment (OAT) medication

used to treat OUD.

The project includes offering Suboxone

“to-go packs” to start patients at

home and a new urgent referral process

to connect people to ongoing OAT in

the community.

In May, Suboxone in the ED was

introduced in hospitals throughout the

West Kootenay, including the Kootenay

Boundary Regional Hospital in Trail,

the Castlegar and District Community

Health Centre, and the Kootenay Lake

Hospital in Nelson. All sites will be

included by September 2022.

Having Suboxone available in EDs

has decreased barriers to accessing OAT

in communities by providing frontline

nurses and physicians with the necessary

training to prescribe the treatment, and

by helping educate patients on how to

start it themselves at home.

Kootenay Lake Levels

Special Alert May 25, 2022

FortisBC is notifying customers that due to above normal snowpack

and delayed melt, there is an increased possibility that flooding could

occur during late May or early June if temperatures rise substantially.

Currently, Kootenay Lake levels are forecasted to remain below 1752 ft.

at Queen’s Bay; however, conditions could change rapidly. Lake levels

are predominately driven by natural inflows as a result of melting snow

pack and precipitation and are subject to sudden, large increases.

Queen’s Bay:

Nelson:

Present level: 1744.72 ft

7 day forecast: Up 3 to 3.5 feet

2021 peak: 1747.33 ft / 2020 peak: 1750.09 ft

Present level: 1743.10 ft

7 day forecast: Up 3 to 3.5 feet

For more information on flood preparedness and emergencies

in your area, visit rdck.ca/eocinfo or pep.bc.ca, or call

1-800-663-3456. To be notified by telephone or email about

large or unusual changes to Kootenay Lake water levels,

Elder Abuse Awareness

Day June 15

On June 15 the Nelson Community

Response Network (CRN) and the Nelson

Elder Abuse Prevention Program (EAPP) are

once again marking the United Nations World

Elder Abuse Awareness Day (WEAAD).

Elder abuse and neglect are disturbing but

often hidden and unreported events. Lack of

recognition of the abuse, shame at being taken

advantage of, and complicated interpersonal

dynamics contribute to under reporting and

lack of action against perpetrators.

Recently an excellent resource has come

to our attention. The Canadian Centre for

Elder Law has produced a summary of the

Federal Criminal Code listings of chargeable

offences for physical abuse, some forms of

psychological abuse, sexual abuse, financial

abuse and criminal negligence (ccelderlaw.

ca/federal-laws/).

The chart above

helps to clarify

what are chargeable

offences.

An older person

may be hesitant to

pursue prosecution

because the perpetrator

is someone

they are reliant

on. They may have

health, memory

or communication

problems that complicate

their ability

to participate in court proceedings. Rather

than a criminal trial a victim of abuse may

consider requesting the police and Crown

Counsel pursue a Peace Bond.

Please remember all elder abuse is wrong

even if it is

not a criminal

offence. There

are some supports

to help

an individual

deal with an

abuser.

Financial

abuse

is the most

commonly

reported form

of elder abuse.

Seniors may

be pressured to

share income, banking information, housing

or to change their Will or other legal documents.

Fraud by computer, a sales person or

the misuses of a Power of Attorney (POA) are

also common.

Being informed of the possible forms of

abuse and having a variety of networks to

consult, if you are concerned for yourself or

others are the best source of prevention and

early intervention.

If you are concerned about possible abuse

do not hesitate to reach out to trusted family

members, your bank, friends, church, lawyer

or the police.

If you wish to learn more about the prevention

of abuse or neglect and planning for your

future please consult with:

New funding for local libraries

New Democrat MLA Brittny Anderson says that people will see

improvements at their local public libraries, including expanded

digital collections and internet access, upgraded spaces and programming,

and improved air circulation thanks to new COVID-

19 relief and recovery funding for libraries.

“Libraries are community hubs,” said Brittny Anderson, MLA

for Nelson-Creston. “They are not only a place we can go to

for books to learn or indulge in amazing stories, but they also

offer invaluable resources like children’s programs, and access to

technology like computers and printers. This funding will help

libraries in the Kootenays to continue to be important gateways

to knowledge and culture.”

Public libraries in the Kootenay Region are receiving funding

as follows:

Creston Public Library - $38,970.57

Salmo Public Library - $29,637.85

Kaslo & District Public Library - $28,690.12

Nelson Municipal Library - $42,038.56

The 2022 Hyundai TUCSON

A total of $8 million in COVID-19 relief and recovery funding

is being distributed between 71 public libraries, six library federations

and three library service partners in B.C. Libraries can use

this new funding to enhance services for people and fill gaps created

by the pandemic. This may include adapting their physical

spaces, delivering computer and virtual technology training, and

developing programs that help people build deeper social and

community connections.

This investment builds on a one-time $3 million investment

in public libraries in 2020, to expand digital services and computer

access during the pandemic. Government also provides

$14 million in annual funding toward operating costs at B.C.’s

public libraries.

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.

JINX CAME INTO SHELTER AFTER

BEING TRAPPED Being in a trap

was stressful and spooky for Jinx,

so upon arriving into foster care,

she began slightly nervous of her

sweet she can be. Jinx has also been

enjoying the small dog in foster. She

can often be found cuddling and

for a calm home to spend lots

of time cuddling her human friends,

State of the snowpack

Data shows that on May 15, 2022, the snow pack throughout

British Columbia was well above normal, ranging from 96 to

152% of normal. The West Kootenay (128%) and East Kootenay

(124%) are above normal. Stations in the northern sections of the

Kootenays are well above normal and may reach record values

for June 1st. In an average year, approximately 18% of the annual

BC snow pack has melted by May 15th (according to data from

automated snow weather stations). Due to the persistent cool

temperatures delaying snowmelt and storm events contributing

additional snow at higher elevations, it is estimated that only 2.6%

of the total snow has melted so far this year

Snow pack is only one factor related to freshet flood risk.

Weather conditions from May through July will determine the

timing, magnitude, and rate of snowmelt, where heavy rainfall

events can exacerbate snowmelt driven flows.

Jinx came into shelter after being trapped and bonking her head.

Being in a trap was stressful and spooky for Jinx, so upon arriving

into foster care, she was slightly nervous of her new environment.

However, with some tasty snacks and lots of bum scratches, Jinx

instantly warmed up and showed her foster mom how sweet she

can be by rubbing against her leg, having friendly conversations,

and asking for plenty of tummy rubs! Jinx has also been enjoying the

small dog in foster. She can often be found cuddling and sleeping

with the dog.

Jinx is looking for a calm home to spend lots of time cuddling her

human friends, and remaining an indoor-only kitty to avoid any

scary cat traps! With slow and proper introductions, Jinx would enjoy

sharing her space with another calm and respectful furry friend!
