Carver Award Nominations<br />

Call for Nominations: The 10th annual Carver Award for<br />

Emerging Writers opens on Monday, <strong>May</strong> <strong>15</strong>th and close on<br />

Monday, June 26th, 5pm 2023.<br />

The Nelson and District Arts Council and Elephant Mountain<br />

Literary Festival request assistance in nominating emerging<br />

writers in West Kootenay communities for the 10th<br />

Annual Carver Award. The award, which comes with a $500<br />

cash prize, will be presented at the Elephant Mountain Literary<br />

Festival in Sept 2023.<br />

Nominations must be for writers just starting in their careers<br />

who have had one to two books published, or an equivalent<br />

body of work published in anthologies or literary journals. The<br />

work must be creative, literary writing, including fiction, creative<br />

nonfiction, poetry, and writing for children and teens.<br />

Self-published authors are eligible. Nominees, who must<br />

reside in the West Kootenay, are judged using three criteria:<br />

quality of work, the strength of nomination, and community<br />

engagement. Nominations must include name and contact<br />

information for both the nominator and the nominee, writing<br />

discipline (fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry, teen, children’s,<br />

etc), titles of published works and their publishers, and a paragraph<br />

outlining the reason for the nomination.<br />

Richard Carver was a lover of the arts and the Kootenays,<br />

and he was invested in the community. He was a mover and<br />

shaker on the board of the Nelson and District Arts Council,<br />

the primary sponsor of this award named in his honour. His<br />

daughter Jocelyn Carver, an arts lover herself, has continued<br />

the family’s generous support of this award.<br />

The 2022 recipient Zaynab Mohammed shares “Last year I<br />

received the Richard Carver Award for being a local emerging<br />

writer. Well, I have emerged! This award was like a set of wings<br />

Online<br />

for me to take flight. Since receiving this award, my career as<br />

a performance poet and writer propels me to new heights as<br />

each season passes. I’m thankful for my community, for the<br />

arts and for what is possible when we explore expression in<br />

thoughtful and creative ways.”<br />

After Richard passed away in 2009, the Arts Council founded<br />

this award, which has been awarded nine times. For full information<br />

please visit the Nelson and District Arts Council website<br />

at www.ndac.ca. Nominations are submitted at www.ndac.<br />

Grief Support Volunteer Training<br />

What do you say to someone who has just experienced a major<br />

loss? There is a desire to acknowledge that loss, but the right<br />

words may be hard to find. The person needs support but finding<br />

the right way to reach out can be challenging.<br />

“Grief is a universal experience”, notes Hospice Chair Brenda<br />

Hooper. “We sustain losses, big and small, all through our life.<br />

The greatest loss is when a loved one dies, but the loss of a beloved<br />

pet, a home, or a job all cause a grief reaction too.”<br />

Few people understand what the process of normal grief is like,<br />

or how to navigate the complex emotional, physical or spiritual<br />

reactions they are experiencing. Brenda explains that the people<br />

around the grieving person may accept these responses as normal<br />

for a few weeks or months but may become frustrated when<br />

people continue to grieve for longer periods of time. Few realize<br />

grief and loss are a life-long process.<br />

The Greater <strong>Trail</strong> Hospice Society is looking for volunteers who<br />

would like to learn more about the grief journey. The upcoming<br />

workshop will provide an opportunity for community members<br />

to learn how grief progresses and what can be expected as a person<br />

mourns. Volunteers working from a philosophy of companioning<br />

a person through this life-changing time helps grievers<br />

discover ways to move forward into a life that has changed significantly.<br />

Brenda describes the training, “This is a chance to<br />

acquire skills that will help anyone support family and friends<br />

through grief, but it also provides an opportunity to fill a real<br />

need in our community. Over the pandemic there were so many<br />

losses that could not be processed, and we are now seeing the<br />

huge need for grief support in this area.”<br />

The Grief Support Training Workshop will be held in <strong>Trail</strong> on<br />

<strong>May</strong> 26 and 27 (Friday evening and Saturday) and June 9 and<br />

10 (participants attend both weekends). The cost is $30 for<br />

books and meals. Call 250-364-6204 to register or for more<br />

information.<br />

Greater <strong>Trail</strong> Hospice Society<br />

Learning about our Local Land<br />

The pandemic highlighted the many benefits of getting outside<br />

regularly and connecting with nature.<br />

The Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada underlined<br />

the need for us to deepen our understanding and knowledge<br />

of local Indigenous history, culture, language and land.<br />

The UN The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change<br />

recently shared that “Education on climate change adaptation<br />

should be a lifelong learning process that equips learners with the<br />

needed practical knowledge, skills, values, and attitudes to live in<br />

the new climate realities as well as socio-emotional resilience to<br />

face possible climate anxiety”.<br />

Through environmental education, non-profit organizations<br />

such as the Columbia Basin Environmental Education Network<br />

(CBEEN), Wildsight and dozens of other local groups work tirelessly<br />

to address all of these critical pieces, and more. This work<br />

supports the sustainability and resilience of our local communities,<br />

land, homes and planet. And the people of our region have<br />

responded by engaging in these programs and initiatives in record<br />

numbers.<br />

Columbia Basin Trust has until recently said that “residents of<br />

all ages deserve opportunities to learn about the region they live<br />

in and be inspired to take care of it”. However, their current plan<br />

is to withdraw all support from all of these programs, initiatives<br />

and organizations as they have said that they have heard this is no<br />

longer a priority in this region.<br />

If you think environmental education is still a priority we<br />

encourage you to have your voice heard at the upcoming community<br />

engagement sessions that Columbia Basin Trust has planned<br />

for your community, as well as through their online survey:<br />

https://future.ourtrust.org<br />

Red Clover Dental<br />

is happy<br />

to welcome<br />

Dr. Max Condor<br />

Until these new priorities are established, we call on the leadership<br />

of the Trust to pause the termination of funding for these<br />

important programs, initiatives and organizations.<br />

OH MOTHER<br />

The Jazz at the Griff series, presented by <strong>Trail</strong> & District Arts<br />

Council, brings you Andrea Superstein: OH MOTHER in The<br />

Bailey Theatre. Thursday, <strong>May</strong> 18 at 7:30 pm<br />

Andrea Superstein is one of the most versatile vocalists in<br />

Canadian music today. Her debut performance at the Vancouver<br />

International Jazz Festival earned her a nomination for a Galaxie<br />

Rising Star award and launched her squarely into the limelight.<br />

Superstein has graced multiple official Spotify playlists, notably<br />

#4 on Vocal Jazz, just ahead of Norah Jones, received a 5-star<br />

review in BBC Music Magazine.<br />

OH MOTHER is a multimedia tour de force inspired by real<br />

life stories of motherhood. Meticulously arranged, each song<br />

beautifully and poignantly evokes a mother’s deep and divergent<br />

emotional experience with a truth and sincerity that’s often lacking<br />

in today’s music. Layers of rich textures, powerful vocals, and<br />

heartfelt imagery in breathtaking videos, enable Superstein to<br />

reach new artistic heights. While it focuses on the parental experience,<br />

this free-spirited musical experience is for everyone.“She’s<br />

a genuine original.” - BBC Music Magazine<br />

“Redefining what it means to sing jazz.” - Vancouver Province<br />

Be Bear Aware<br />

With Spring, also Bear season is upon<br />

us and in addition to disposing of garbage<br />

properly, avoiding birdfeeders<br />

and cleaning BBQ areas, there is also<br />

the yard and garden to consider...It is<br />

much easier to keep food away from a<br />

wild bear in the first place than it is to<br />

teach who has already been rewarded<br />

with human food/waste to stop accessing<br />

that easy, high calorie source.<br />

Securing attractants is the single best<br />

way to keep people safe, prevent property<br />

damage, and avoid the unnecessary<br />

killing of bears that come into conflict<br />

with people.<br />

Here are some tips:<br />

In the Garden:<br />

• Vegetable gardens, especially those<br />

containing potatoes and root vegetables<br />

such as carrots and beets, attract bears.<br />

Flower gardens are not as attractive to<br />

bears as long as they don’t contain sweet<br />

vetch, dandelions and clover.<br />

• Harvest garden vegetables as they<br />

ripen.<br />

• Consider a permanent electric fence<br />

to keep animals out of your garden.<br />

• Never use blood meal, fish fertilizer<br />

or deer repellent in any garden.<br />

Landscaping:<br />

• Avoid using plants that bears like<br />

to eat next to doorways, windows or<br />

entrances, near children’s play sets,<br />

beside paths and high use areas.<br />

• Avoid seeding with clover and keep<br />

your grass cut and free of dandelions.<br />

• Plants that bear fruit or nuts should<br />

be used with caution.<br />

Compost:<br />

• Use a bear-proof composter.<br />

• Keep your compost clean and odour<br />

free. Use equal amounts of brown and<br />

green matter. Keep compost aerated and<br />

properly turned.<br />

• Never compost meat, fish, oil, grease<br />

or dairy products.<br />

• Sprinkle your compost with lime to<br />

aid in decomposition and reduce odour.<br />

Bury kitchen waste and cover with dry<br />

leaves or dried grass clippings.<br />

• Locate compost well away from the<br />

forest edge, thickets and natural pathways<br />

used by bears.<br />

• Start a community compost at your<br />

local electric-fenced landfill.<br />

• Try indoor vermicomposting!<br />

HOME HARDWARE<br />

“Spring has<br />

sprung and we<br />

have everything<br />

you need to tackle<br />

your garden!”<br />

Other Products:<br />

• Citronella products contain a compound<br />

that is very attractive to bears, so<br />

it’s best not to burn citronella candles or<br />

use any citronella-based bug sprays.<br />

• Surprisingly, bears have been<br />

known to take bites out of hot tub<br />

covers. You see, insulation made with<br />

formaldehyde gives off formic acid as it<br />

breaks down. Bears are naturally drawn<br />

to the smell of formic acid from ant colonies<br />

and will bite into the insulation<br />

in refrigerators, hot tub covers, bicycle<br />

or snowmobile seats, etc. looking for<br />

ants. To prevent this, (1) use alternative<br />

products (like aluminum hot tub covers);<br />

or (2) sprinkle your hot tub cover<br />

or other attractive object with garden<br />

lime or any alkali and then place a tarpaulin<br />

cover over it (the formic acid<br />

that is released is then counteracted by<br />

the lime (CaCO3) to give harmless calcium<br />

formate + CO2).<br />

• Bears are also attracted to all petroleum<br />

products, like gas, oil and grease.<br />

These products should always be stored<br />

securely where bears can not access<br />

them (follow proper storage guidelines<br />

as these products may be a fire risk).<br />

Play it safe around our reservoirs<br />

Play it safe when boating or swimming this summer. Our reservoirs can be enjoyable recreation<br />

destinations, provided certain common sense safety precautions are observed.<br />

Because the water in our reservoirs is used for flood control and the production of electricity, reservoir<br />

water levels can rise or fall daily. Reservoir users should be aware that changing water levels can conceal<br />

submerged hazards, particularly in shallow water near the shoreline. It is important that visitors be aware<br />

of these potential dangers and take precautions to stay safe. Canadian Hydrographic Charts are an<br />

excellent reference for boaters and are available at www.charts.gc.ca.<br />

Boating, fishing and swimming above or below a dam or generating station can be very dangerous. For<br />

your own safety and the safety of those with you, obey all warning signs and stay out of restricted areas.<br />

Boaters must comply with all Canadian Coast Guard regulations and practice safe boating at all times.<br />

Have fun <strong>–</strong> but be careful!<br />

Kuimba Choir celebrates Spring!<br />

It’s spring, birds are singing, and so are the singers of Kaslo! Kuimba<br />

Choir is celebrating spring on <strong>May</strong> 27 and 28 with a concert<br />

featuring music from North America, including Canadian folk<br />

favourites like Four Strong Winds and Northwest Passage, as well<br />

as some rollicking gospel songs including O Mary Don’t You Weep<br />

and a barn-burning, show-stopping arrangement of the classic Go<br />

Down, Moses that will have you out of your seat. We’ve also snuck<br />

in one African song <strong>–</strong> arranged by Canadian composer Brian Tate<br />

<strong>–</strong> just because we enjoy singing African music so much. Check the<br />

<strong>Pennywise</strong> event listings in this issue for details.<br />

We’ll be joined by local musical guests Kevin John, Robin Mercy,<br />

Merriweather, Marie Sauvage, and the Moon Family Band. Kuimba<br />

is accepting new singers this fall <strong>–</strong> no previous choral experience<br />

Would your acreage benefit<br />

from soil amendment?<br />

Mercer Celgar is looking for landowners with 2 or more<br />

acres within 60 km that would benefit from using their<br />

Celgrow soil amendment. Pastures and hay fields are good<br />

options.<br />

Mercer Celgar will cover the costs of a Qualified Professional<br />

performing soil sampling, obtaining government authorization<br />

and delivery costs of Celgrow soil amendment based on<br />

access with a large truck/pup combination. Acreage should<br />

be able to accommodate at least 6 truck/pup loads. The two<br />

major components of Celgrow are individual wood fibres<br />

lost from the pulping process and surplus bacteria from the<br />

wastewater biological treatment facility. Wood fibres enhance<br />

soil moisture retention and bacteria are a good source of soil<br />

nutrients. The landowner is responsible for spreading and incorporating<br />

Celgrow into their soil.<br />

If interested, please contact by<br />

Email: celgrow.mc@mercerint.com<br />
