From the developer's
perspective, Rink was
agreeable to creating the
10 units, but emphasized
that is contingent on hav-
ing six storeys on the
seniors resident building.
Kutenai Landing is
more than condominiums.
The buildings come with a
marina that would go 475
feet into Kootenay Lake.
"We believe the marina
is an opportunity our buy-
ers will find attractive,"
Surveys of the area
showed the marina had to
go as far as it does to ensure
the boats aren't left high
and dry when the water
level drops, said Rink.
McAdams disagreed with
the developer's assessment
of how far the marina had
to extend into Kootenay

fairly congested with kay-
aks, canoes, sailboats and

opment would also be
accessible to the public.
Should council approve
the development, con-
struction would begin this
year on an underground
parkade for the first
building - called "B" -
along with initial work on
extending Cedar Street.

Show some pride
Kootenay Gay Pride needs volunteers to organize this summer's events
by Chris Shepherd
Teresa Stebbing wants
Nelson to have some pride
and she needs volunteers
to help make happen.
Stebbing is with the
Kootenay Gay Pride
Committee that organiz-
ers the annual Gay Pride
week but few volunteers
showing up to organize
mean the event could be
lacking some pride.
"When the celebrations
originally started it was

to oppression," Stebbing

The justification at
the time was the banner

in the community.
"Even in Nelson, which
feels like an accepting
community, there was
still homophobia and it's
worse in other places,"
She thinks part of the
problem in finding volun-
teers for this year's pride
week is people are taking
acceptance for granted.
Younger people may
not realize what had to
be done to reach the level
of acceptance enjoyed by
That acceptance isn't
"Pride is the antidote
to shame," Stebbing says.
"There's a lot of shame
placed on people from
parents, teachers and
religion. To counter that
shame is why we have
Name calling, teasing
and violence still happens,
Stebbing says, adding

The Nelson parade,
entering its 11th year,
is one of the few in the
region. Spokane's parade
is the closest, Stebbing
says, noting Calgary and
Vancouver's are at least
in the same country but
are too far for locals.
A parade is an opportu-
nity for people in isolated
communities to come be

and "avoid the daily grind
of hiding their sexuality."

how many people are gay

Where do you vacation when you already
live in the best place on earth?
Vancouver Coast & Mountains Fulfill
For adventurers seeking an adrenalin-hyped
vacation, the search is over. From the greater
Vancouver region to the Sunshine Coast and the
Fraser Valley, outdoor play runs the gamut from
rafting to rappelling.
Squamish, recognized as the 'outdoor recreation
capital of Canada/ is a hotspot when it comes to
outdoorsy activities. Rock climbers arrive from all
over the world to take on the Stawamus Chief. The
652-metre (2,140 foot) granite monolith, as well
as other craggy facades, has earned Squamish its
international reputation among climbers.
At the head of Howe Sound, windsurfers catch
phenomenal air - consistently averaging between
15 and 25 knots. Kayakers skirt up for an ocean
excursion or Whitewater paddling is possible in
rivers that range from class ll-IV. The scenery
is sure to be a stunner while jet boating on the
Lillooet River, southeast of Pemberton. One can
surge past spectacular glacial peaks and tradi-
tional First Nations fishing camps; spot deer, the
occasional bear, osprey and spawning salmon.
Some jet boat tours offer the opportunity to visit
a traditional Coast Salish pit house, or "s7istken"
(pronounced ee-sh-kin), where adventurers can
partake in a welcoming ceremony of food-sharing.
Whitewater rafting is a wild water experience on
rivers like the Elaho-Squamish, Lower Cheakamus,
Nahatlatch, Chilliwack and Fraser. Trips on the
mighty Fraser River are motorized but still a hoot.
Lytton, where the Fraser and Thompson converge,
is renowned for Whitewater rafting.
Hiking opportunities abound in this region.
Manning Provincial Park's sub-alpine meadows
are carpeted in wildflowers mid-summer; hiking
trails range from 30 minute treks to multi-day
excursions. The park also offers horseback rid-
ing, swimming, canoeing, freshwater fishing and
And one cannot forget that some adventures take
root in a campsite. With a myriad of places to
pitch a tent, playtime can begin at Roberts Creek
Provincial Park or Saltery Bay Provincial Park on
the Sunshine Coast, ideal for scuba diving, kayak-
ing and hiking; Sasquatch Provincial Park near
Harrison Lake with opportunities to fish, wind-
surf or fashion sand sculptures; or Alice Lake
Provincial Park past Squamish where visitors can
canoe, kayak, bird, hike, and mountaineer.

our two children over ten
years ago, we had many
questions and concerns.
How do you tell your
family you are planning
to adopt? What are the
challenges of parenting
a child from another cul-
ture? When do you talk
about adoption with your
kids? What resources
are there in the commu-
nity for adoptive families?
And what do you say to
those strangers in the gro-
cery store lineup who ask
where your child came

Our goal this year is to raise
$58,000 to purchase a
Digital Processor for the new
Operating Room at Kootenay Lake
Hospital. A camera and light source
in one, this equipment is used during
gastrointestinal scope procedures
such as colonoscopy and gastros-
copy. The Digital Processor projects
the images from the scope to a flat
panel screen, which provides the
endoscopist a real time image as
the scopes are passed through the
An average of 8 scope procedures
are performed at Kootenay Lake
Hospital each week, enabling a large
portion of people, from young adults
to seniors, to access this diagnostic
technology in our own community.
A colonoscope is useful in detecting
illness affecting the colon, such as
Crohn's and ulcerative colitis. The
procedure involves a flexible scope
that is fed into the lower bowel. The
scope contains a camera system,
which is connected to a television
screen, via the Digital Processor,
for visualization of the lower bowel.
Magnified pictures of the colon are
viewed on the screen, allowing the
endoscopist to remove polyps, cau-
terize bleeding lesions within the
colon, or biopsy suspicious areas to
diagnose or rule out benign or malig-
nant bowel conditions.
Colorectal cancer is the third most
common malignancy in Canada,
and the second most frequent cause
of cancer death. The incidence of
this cancer is rising steadily after the
age of 50, and each year more than
700 British Columbians die from it.
The majority of colon cancers arise
from polyps, which are often asymp-
tomatic but can be readily identified
and removed during the colonos-
copy procedure. It is estimated that
the time taken for a small adenoma
(polyp) to develop into a cancer is
three years, and in most cases much
longer. Removal of these adenomas
has been demonstrated to reduce
colon cancer mortality and, while
a colonoscopy is only one of sev-
eral evaluations important in iden-
tifying individuals who may harbor
such disease, the removal of polyps
is both diagnostic and therapeu-
tic. For more information on cancer
screening opportunities or diagnosis
of other gastrointestinal disorders,
contact your family physician.

Fishing Forever came into existence

Liimatainen after he had been diagnosed
with a progressive muscle disease. He
loved to fish but could no longer do so
on his own. He realized there must be
others in the same situation. He decided
to organize an event where all mobility
challenged individuals could go fishing.

federation as a perfect vehicle for accom-
plishing this goal. With their help this

How to fix mouldy attics
Steve Cannon, Chris Morris
& Bill Lynch
We own a house that was
built in 1929. Someone who
owned the house before
us insulated the attic with
vermiculite. I am going
increase the insulation lev-
els a lot. So I went up there
to measure the area for the
amount of fibreglass batts
I will need. What I discov-
ered is a lot of white mould
on the roof boards. I think I should clean
it up before I re-insulate, but I'm not sure.
Is there another way to deal with it?
Attics in older homes often have
problems with mould and mildew. Back
in the day, when there was no insulation
in your attic, this attic space probably
functioned quite well. That's not to say
that the insulation is entirely to blame
for the problem.
Originally though, the attic was not
isolated from the interior air so it was
part of one contiguous breathing space
that aspirated to the outdoors. The rising
hot air from the building pushed through
the attic and roofing to the outside and all
was well (except the heating costs).
Once insulation was introduced to
this space, it sealed and separated the
attic from the living area
below. Nobody con-
sidered that the attic
had to breathe, so it
changed into a hot and
often humid area, full of
trapped dead air.
To compound the
problem, a vapour barrier
is often mistakenly omit-
ted when older attics are
insulated. So, the humid-

More is always better than less when
it comes to attic venting. Before you
install the new insulation, ensure these
vent plugs allow air flow into the attic by
installing insulation baffles ("mor vents")
between each rafter bay in the attic.
Then, install large gable end vents.
These vents allow the fresh air drawn
through the soffits to escape and carry
off any heat and moisture that could
provide an environment for mould
growth in your attic.

back into the living area
to avoid the potential for
transfer of contaminants

The week leading up to the Summer Solstice is chock full of potent
astro-weather. Thursday's New Moon at 24 degrees Gemini is trine
Neptune. This is the month for big dreams to be incubated. A time for
shifts, changes & re-arranges. On Friday Mercury turns retrograde at 12
degrees of Cancer till July 1 1th. This period is filled with small snafus &
potential miscommunications. The moon is in Leo for the 17th (Father's
day) so we have a green light for warm-hearted family gatherings on
Sunday. The Sun opposes Pluto on midnight of the 18th. A time to shine
a laser into the personal & collective shadow!
aries |\/| ars j n Aries is a Johnny Appleseed approach to gardening.
O^ You need to work smart & get to the heart of the matter. Your
wacko humour defuses critics & attracts allies.
Venus in Leo has you musing over love relations. Saturn there
has you pondering the karma of relationships that are proving
to be problematic. Be patient!
Mercury turning retrograde is what we call: coyote medicine.
Time to put a new spin on all that activity. Meditate, edit re-
write, re-design, read between the lines...
Deep within, you harbour a love-hate relationship to family
gatherings. They evoke childhood memories. Your task this
week: grieve deeply & praise what passes...
That Moon in Leo (17,18,19) is a time to gather your tribe to
the great buffet table & the theatrical gig you have been cooking
up for some months now. Let the cat out of the bag!
You have accomplished a huge U-turn recently. This is nothing
to be shy about. You are an avatar of dicing the ego into
edibles. A master of tossing the salad...
It is the fate of idealists & humanitarians to be often
discouraged with the journey as they keep their dream eye on
the destination. Take some down time. Re-creation!
The Buddhists say that rage is the last thing one needs to
release in order to gain enlightenment. You could consult a
Virgo re chopping up unsavoury egos...
You are gazing into the omnivorous black hole at the heart
of your galaxy. This may mean that some of your cosmos is
becoming chaos. Lighten your heart...

NELSON HYDRO CUSTOMER ADVISORY
High Power Consumption
Nelson Hydro receives numerous complaints regarding high billing. When a
customer calls the Hydro Clerk for clarification or general complaint, we will
have our staff check the meter reading for accuracy to compare annual historical
consumption. Any errors found will either be credited to your account or billed
additional. You may challenge the accuracy of the meter if you wish, as man-
dated by the Federal Agency, Measurement Canada. If you feel that your bill is
too high, you should take the following steps to reduce your consumption:
1. Hot Water
Electric hot water tanks consume the most energy in your home. They are
factory set for about 80°C. Reduce this setting to about 55 - 60°C.
Lighting accounts for about 10% of the total energy consumption. Turn out
your lights and save.
Electric heating costs can easily be reduced by turning off heaters in spare
rooms and turning off heat during the night.
If you have concerns about your bi-monthly bill, please call the Nelson Hydro
metering customer service representative at 250-352-8223 and we will be
pleased to answer your questions.
Parks Department Update
It's that time of year - The City's Parks staff have been busy cleaning up and
beautifying Nelson's hundreds of acres of parks, display gardens, playing fields
and City boulevards. On June 15 th , 90 flower baskets will be hung around town
helping Nelson maintain its status as one of the most beautiful places to live.
The Lakeside Park concession stand is now open and the public beach washroom
is open daily from 8:00 am to 9:30 pm during the summer months.
For the Little Ones - Gyro Park pool will be opening 7 days a week except for
statutory holidays, from July 3 rd until August 31st. Hours of operation will be
1:00 pm to 6:00 pm, with a lifeguard on duty. Please note the age restriction of
13 years old and under for the use of this free pool.
The City is reviewing the assessment of a large Yellow Pine tree in Gyro Park
that has been assessed as a public safety hazard and is showing signs of deterio-
ration. The tree is located just east of the washrooms, and is leaning heavily over
Gyro Park Road. A report will be completed prior to any action being taken.
The City would like to remind residents to be mindful of water conservation, by
keeping sprinkling and running water to a minimum.
