I Love Nelson http://ilovenelson.com Nelson's Community Website Fri, 04 Sep 2015 04:50:36 +0000 en-US hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.4 Films at the Nelson Civic Theatre – Sep 04 -10, 2015 http://ilovenelson.com/films-at-the-nelson-civic-theatre-sep-04-10-2015/ http://ilovenelson.com/films-at-the-nelson-civic-theatre-sep-04-10-2015/#respond Wed, 02 Sep 2015 19:05:11 +0000 http://ilovenelson.com/?p=289815 Sep4-10civic_flyerA pair of Covert CIA operatives at The Civic this week.
A Bourne Identity for the stoner set; American Ultra (rated 14A) finds small-town stoner Mike Howell (Jesse Eisenberg) spending most of his time getting high and writing a graphic novel. What Mike doesn’t know is that he was trained by the CIA to be a lethal killing machine. When the agency targets him for termination, his former handler activates his latent skills.
Elsewhere in the agency, CIA operative, Napoleon Solo, has to settle his differences with KGB agent Kuryakin to form the elite international force U.N.C.L.E. to stop a mysterious international criminal organization that is bent on destabilizing the fragile balance of power through the proliferation of nuclear weapons and technology. The Man From U.N.C.L.E (rated PG) plays along side American Ultra for the weekend/Tuesday run.
Not connected to the CIA in anyway, Amy (rated PG), from BAFTA award-winning director Asif Kapadia (SENNA), tells the incredible story of six-time Grammy-winner Amy Winehouse – in her own words. Featuring extensive unseen archival footage and previously unheard tracks, this strikingly modern, moving and vital film shines a light on the world we live in, in a way that very few can. Amy kicks off The Civic Theatre’s new bi-weekly documentary series on Wednesday, Sept. 9th.
And for your Thursday pleasure, we bring you another gem from the Sundance ’15 lineup. The Diary of a Teenage Girl (rated 18A), based on the graphic novel from Phoebe Gloeckner, is set in the San Francisco of the 1970s, about a precocious 15 year old girl, desperate to lose her virginity, whose sexual adventures begin with the seduction of her divorced mother’s 35 year old boyfriend, who she believes, briefly, is the handsomest man in the world.

NPD – Files of Interest http://ilovenelson.com/npd-files-of-interest-11/ http://ilovenelson.com/npd-files-of-interest-11/#respond Wed, 02 Sep 2015 18:59:14 +0000 http://ilovenelson.com/?p=289813 nelsonpoliceOn Friday August 28 at approx. 6:30 PM the Nelson Police were called to the Lakeside Soccer field for an intoxicated male yelling and swearing at people. Members attended and recognized the offender as a 53 year old local male that was known to police. He was arrested for causing a disturbance and held until sober. He was released with a court date the following morning with conditions to stay out of the park and not consume liquor.

On Monday August 31 The Nelson Police Department received another complaint about this male. He had stolen a bike from the same park he was arrested in days before. While NPD members were interviewing the bike owner the suspect happened upon them riding the stolen bike. He was also found to be intoxicated and was arrested for breaching the conditions of his previous release and for theft of the bike. NPD file 2015 4216 and 4280 refer.

On August 29 a vehicle owner called NPD to report that sometime overnight his motorbike had been stolen from Lakeside Dr. It was parked there displayed for sale and during the night someone either rode off on it or loaded it into a truck. The motorbike is a blue Suzuki dirt bike. The Nelson Police Department is investigating. NPD file 2015-4235 refers.

On August 30 at 11 PM the Nelson Police Department received a 911 call from a male who reported he was just robbed at gun point in the uphill area of Nelson. He added that the offenders were also following him in a vehicle. Nelson Police Department members quickly located the victim, and began investigating.

The following morning the suspect vehicle had been located in another community and the stolen property recovered. Possible suspects have been identified and the investigation is ongoing. If anyone has any information about this incident please call the Nelson Police Department at 250-354-3919 or Crimestoppers at 1800-222-TIPS (8477). NPD file 2015-4265.

Adoptable Pets September 1 2015 – Anna http://ilovenelson.com/adoptable-pets-september-1-2015-anna/ http://ilovenelson.com/adoptable-pets-september-1-2015-anna/#respond Wed, 02 Sep 2015 18:56:44 +0000 http://ilovenelson.com/?p=289771 2Anna is a three-year-old female domestic short hair/Bengal cross. She has a short brown tabby coat and big, curious yellow eyes. Anna has been patiently waiting for her forever home since being surrendered to us two months ago due to being incompatible with her previous family.

Anna is a very vocal cat who demands your attention by meowing when she wants to be pet or fed. She loves to run around exploring her environment and can be quite playful with toys. She enjoys a good body rub and neck scratches, but she will be sure to let you know when she has had enough! She can be a little feisty at times, needing her own space to chill out until she is ready to be social again.

Anna would do best in a household with lots of stimulation and interaction with her caregiver. As Anna likes to bond with a single person, she would be best suited to a low-traffic home with just one or two caregivers.

If you are interested in Anna, come meet her at the BC SPCA Nelson Branch or call 250-352-7178.

The Kootenay Real Estate Corner w/ Chris Burneau- FAIR Realty/ My Kootenay Home. http://ilovenelson.com/the-kootenay-real-estate-corner-w-chris-burneau-fair-realty-my-kootenay-home-3/ http://ilovenelson.com/the-kootenay-real-estate-corner-w-chris-burneau-fair-realty-my-kootenay-home-3/#respond Sun, 30 Aug 2015 18:21:43 +0000 http://ilovenelson.com/?p=289228 Chris Burneau My kootenay homeKootenay home sales slowing, but still above average in July
Home sales recorded through the MLS® System of the Kootenay Real Estate Board in July 2015 came in below levels from July 2014.
Home sales numbered 273 units in July 2015, down 6.5 per cent on a year-over-year basis. Sales of all property types numbered 310 units in July 2015, a decrease of 7.2 per cent from July 2014.
On a year-to-date basis home sales totaled 1,437 units over the first seven months of 2015. This is running roughly in line (-0.5 per cent) with the same period last year.
“While sales have slowed down a bit in recent months, activity in July was still running ahead of the same month in the last eight years with the exception of a slightly stronger reading last year,” said David Blishen,

President of the Kootenay Real Estate Board. “On the supply side, inventories are continuing to trend slowly and steadily down. As a result, the balance of supply and demand has almost converged on its historical average at this point.”
The average price of homes sold in July 2015 was $277,327. This was down 5.4 per cent from July 2014. The less volatile year-to-date average price was $278,755, down 0.4 per cent from the first seven months of 2014. The bigger picture is that prices have remained more of less stable over the past six years.
New residential listings numbered 526 units in July 2015, falling 7.7 per cent from July 2014.
Active residential listings on the Board’s MLS® System numbered 3,067 units at the end of July, down 5.3 per cent from the end of July 2014.
There were 11.5 months of inventory at the end of July, unchanged from a year earlier and not far off the long-run average of 10.5 months for this time of the year. The number of months of inventory is the number of months it would take to sell current inventories at the current rate of sales activity.
The dollar volume of all home sales totaled $75.7 million in July 2015, down 11.6 per cent from year-ago levels. The total value of all properties sold was $81.4 million, a decrease of 13.7 per cent from July 2014.
Feel free to contact me about any questions in regards to your homes worth or any questions about getting into the Kootenay home market. Have a terrific week!!

Ricki and the Flash (rated PG), starring Meryl Streep, opens on the split with Ed Helms reliving his childhood Vacation (rated 14A) for the weekend/Tuesday run.
Meryl Streep plays hard rocking Ricki who gave up everything for her dream of stardom, but is now returning home to make things right with her family. Streep stars opposite her real-life daughter Mamie Gummer, who plays her fictional daughter. Ricki and the Flash is under the capable direction of Johnathan Demme, Oscar winner for Silence of The Lambs, and director of the iconic rock film Talking Heads: Stop Making Sense.
I always knew that Rusty Griswold would grow up to become Ed Helms. Chevy Chase’s iconic family road movie gets a new twist when Rusty relives his childhood trip to Wally World to bring his own family closer together. What could go wrong? Join the family Vacation over this final week of summer holidays.
Tangerine (rated 18A), Our Thursday film featured at Sundance received a lot of attention because the film was shot entirely on Apple iPhones with anamorphic adapters. The director, Sean Baker said the decision was largely due to monetary constraints, but also because of the immediacy the process would allow. The experiement helped Baker and Director of Photography Radium Cheung achieve some nimble camera work, often shot while riding his 10-speed bicycle. “Probably most importantly, everybody out there has a mobile phone with a video camera and they’re out there shooting videos everyday so that allowed us to be inconspicuous and not intimidate first-time actors and people on the street…It really allowed us to shoot clandestinely, as well.” The film follows a working transgender girl tearing through Tinseltown on Christmas Eve searching for the pimp who broke her heart.
Coming next: a split of Man From U.N.C.L.E and American Ultra, Amy and The Diary of a Teenage Girl

It is suspected that, approximately two weeks ago, the wheel chair was possibly taken for a ‘joy ride”, used to take to someone home and not returned to the hospital, or was otherwise removed from Kootenay Lake Hospital.

The selfless and caring folks of the Hospital Auxiliary volunteer countless hours, and work very hard raising money to buy items, such as this wheelchair, which benefit the needs of numerous people in our community.

The Nelson Police Department and the Kootenay Lake Hospital Auxiliary would like to appeal to the public for their assistance in recovering the wheelchair. If it is located or should someone knows the whereabouts of the wheelchair, we are asking that they contact Nelson Police Department for assistance in returning the wheelchair or it can be dropped off directly to Kootenay Lake Hospital. wheel chair

Horoscope for the Week: August 28, 2015 http://ilovenelson.com/horoscope-for-the-week-august-28-2015/ http://ilovenelson.com/horoscope-for-the-week-august-28-2015/#respond Thu, 27 Aug 2015 18:59:30 +0000 http://ilovenelson.com/?p=288796 Sunstar Banner

Tip of the Week:

A series of key conjunctions are in the spotlight this week. On August 26 Jupiter and the Sun formed their annual conjunction. On August 28 Mercury conjunct the Lunar North Node and on August 31st Venus retrograde will conjunct Mars. Conjunctions mark the beginning of a new cycle between any two planets. When the Sun and Moon are conjunct it is New Moon and is also when a Solar Eclipse can occur. This rhythmic, cyclic dance this pair shares, the ‘luminaries’, constitute the archetypal foundation for all cycles in Astrology.

Sometimes a cycle is shorter than it might be otherwise and this occurs when one or both planets are retrograde. In other words, Venus having turned direct again on September 6th will finally catch-up to Mars on November 2nd. But the more important story is the fact that over the course of 2015 Venus and Mars conjunct 3 times. This has not occurred since 1985. And the last time they even formed a conjunction prior to 2015 was April 7, 2013. Studies have shown that in a Venus / Mars triple conjunction year many more relationships seem to end, many begin and many existing ones deepen. Yet, this remains a general theme because the real story is revealed in one’s own actual Birth Chart and in the charts produced by our relationships.

As it is, Venus and Mars together tend to be hot and this tends to be especially true while in Leo, the sign ruled by the Sun, and the sign which governs the playful side of sexuality. With Venus retrograde conjunct Mars, the sensual and sexual arousal factor will be extra high. The mating game is on but long-term commitments may not be at the forefront of everyone’s aspirations.

Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 20)
Balancing work and play and is an ongoing challenge and this may prove especially true this week. Especially in the love department the desire to engage in meaningful exchanges is running high. Love, passion, fairness, equality and the politics of all of the above are center stage. Whether as a consequence of this focus or based on an inspirational push for it improving, your health is featured.

Taurus (Apr 20 – May 21)
You are in a sporting mood. Describing it as simply playful, however, may not suffice. You are eager to dig deep, to reach for levels beyond your usual scope. Although determined to play fair, your focus is sharp and may even have an added edge. In simple terms, you are determined to get to the heart of the matter. This is where the line between work and play blurs.

Gemini (May 21 – Jun 21)
Your confidence levels should be on a steady rise. Along with them, so too are your passions gaining altitude. It has perhaps been a while but dormant desires are re-awakening. You may have to contend with some lingering health concerns but there too you likely have reason to feel optimistic. As well, returns for efforts in the past, even one’s you forgot, are filling your sails.

Cancer (Jun 21 – Jul 22)
While feeling good is a no brainer, the desire for it has suddenly spiked. Deciphering between what you feel you truly need and want is up for you. As if suddenly, you may feel a little overwhelmed with what constitutes your best choices. You may reason that you cannot afford to ‘not’ buy the best. One thing seems clear: you especially want big returns on your efforts and investments at this time.

Leo (Jul 22 – Aug 23)
You are in an ambitious mood. It has been steadily rising and is now shifting to the next higher gear. But this is where the real work begins. The inspiration, enthusiasm and excitement were a great start but now the game is on and in full force. Your main task now is to break through your fears. Ironically, we can be as afraid of success as of failure. Think less and act more to build a promising momentum.

Virgo (Aug 23 – Sep 22)
Working both within and without might characterize your current process. Some might simply call it double time. This is an expansive time for you and one during which you just might advance to the next level or two, or three. Well, each one takes time but that is what Jupiter in your sign is all about. But don’t expect anyone else to do it for you. Get inventive for best results.

Libra (Sep 22 – Oct 22)
A period of fun and frolic, yet perhaps also with some heavier drama too continues. Yet now you are a little less inclined to stir things up. Circumstances are pushing you to seek retreat, rest and perhaps solace behind the scenes. Still, you remain willing to express your thoughts with anyone you deem able to actually engage in sincere conversation.

Scorpio (Oct 22 – Nov 21)
You have begun to show more of your true colors. Some may be surprised at just how intellectual you can be and psychologically perceptive as well. At least some of your communications, however, are reserved for your own inner council. Deciphering which tools and methods you require and which you are wise to set aside, at least for now, is a core theme.

Sagittarius (Nov 21 – Dec 21)
You have arrived at an interesting turn. On one hand, you feel enthusiastic to expand your scope and influence. Yet, calculated risks will work better than cavalier leaps, which might otherwise work at different turns. In the very short term the challenge remains to clear the old to make way for the new, still. Very soon now the impulse to take deliberate action will be triggered. Get ready.

Capricorn (Dec 21 – Jan 19)
Your wings are stretched and you are in full flight. Some complex situations continue to rumble on the ground below, however. These will continue for a couple of weeks anyway, so heads up. They are linked to love, romance and affection, on one hand, and to money, power and control, on the other. Expressions of mutual respect, where actions speak louder than words, is the key.

Aquarius (Jan 19 – Feb 19)
You have entered a time of returns. These stand to be especially evident now and over the coming weeks but in some respects for months to come. Contending with a bit of turbulence on relationship fronts however, or coming from a significant other, is part of the plot for now. But this will not last and the storm clouds they may produce will be spliced with and followed by rainbows.

Pisces (Feb 19 – Mar 20)
An expansive cycle has begun. Yet, as for many, the influences of Venus Retrograde continue to weave a complex plot. You are among those who may feel especially challenged by it. There is a way out however. The key is to exercise gratitude as fully as you can and, as well, your ability to enjoy other people’s success. Such wisdom is categorized as timeless.

Tip of the Week:

This is when the time of the lion meets the virgin and passes on the torch. The exact moment when the Sun will enter the seasonal sign of Virgo is at 3:38 am PDT on August 23rd. By August 26 at 3:02 pm the Sun will conjunct Jupiter in Virgo. This annual event is special in astrology as the solar energy activates the already ignited and magnificent Jupiter thus triggering the core themes that Jupiter holds for the year, based on the moment it entered Virgo. It is of further interest and significance that this Jupiter conjunction occurs on Women’s Equality Day. (I addressed this theme in my August 14th New Moon in Leo Newsletter – send me an email if you would like to receive it – sunstarastrology@gmail.com)

Briefly, what is significant about this is that humanity remains in a time of revolution regarding male/female equality. The 5000 year reign of patriarchal dominion is finally coming to its completion. Even the rarer bouts of women in positions of political power over the centuries were usually conducted in a masculine manner. That many very old institutions, customs and norms were established during this long cycle means that humanity is challenged to progressively replace the core attitudes and rational that support and even continue to perpetuate this imbalance.

Currently, Venus retrograde in Leo is fast approaching Mars which is also in Leo and moving direct. The proverbial and timeless dance between these two celestial lovers, archetypal forces when plotted on an Astrological Mandala (chart), are contributing to this deeper theme of love, passion, mutual love and now the social and political ideal and goal of equality, just as nature intended it.

Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 20)
A passionate, dramatic and hopefully playful cycle continues. Although some of your attention has shifted to more sober matters such as making improvements in your lifestyle and work routine for the sake of health, you remain committed to having some fun. With so many complexities underway meanwhile, perhaps especially in your relationships, yours is a real juggling act now.

Taurus (Apr 20 – May 21)
You are in an extra creative mood. Yet in order to successfully follow through you will have to put in more time than usual. Recalibrating your overall vision and focus regarding long-term commitments is featured. These will bring about some deep and even transformational changes in you over the coming years. For now, you need to clear the way and make a reliable plan.

Gemini (May 21 – Jun 21)
An animated cycle continues. You feel playful and your energy levels remain high. Dreams of creative expressions are dancing in your mind. Although you remain focused upon raising your overall health levels, you have reason to feel optimistic with your progress. Summer is hardly over yet and there is reason to say adventure and perhaps romance is at least on your mind.

Cancer (Jun 21 – Jul 22)
You have initiated steps to build a new momentum. Many thoughts and ideas about what to do and how are running through your mind. Two main obstacles now include over analysis, on one hand, and scattering your focus, on the other. These challenges will not go away anytime soon so focus to overcome them now. Making key investments are woven into the plot.

Leo (Jul 22 – Aug 23)
The recent New Moon in your sign sowed seeds of inspiration. They speak of taking risks in order to expand your influence and overall potential. It is important that you follow through now with deliberate action. At least get organized and set your plans and projects into motion. This in the first step and by taking it your chances of success will skyrocket.

Virgo (Aug 23 – Sep 22)
A busy time including getting organized behind the scenes is a central theme now. This may well include doing some inner work to overcome inner doubts. You have reason to feel increasingly optimistic yet it also remains important that any risks you take are measured and calculated. Allow critical analysis to guide you through a prioritization process.

Libra (Sep 22 – Oct 22)
Quality time shared with friends will likely be spliced with some added drama and complexity now. You may even feel the need to dig deeper than usual to draw upon inner reserves of faith and understanding. Yet you also feel punchy and rebellious these days and are willing to take whatever actions you deem necessary, even if not everyone agrees or likes it.

Scorpio (Oct 22 – Nov 21)
You continue to get some extra attention in your public and/or professional life. Some of it may be desired and appreciated, but not necessarily all of it. This complex plot may require that you step back for a while as opposed to assert yourself to advance. It may be that you need to acquire new tools and undergo changes in your attitude and/or approach.

Sagittarius (Nov 21 – Dec 21)
You may feel as though you are at a crossroads. You stand between a long and perhaps exhausting cycle over the past few years which served to erase past patterns. Now you are ready to embark upon a new adventure yet you may feel uncertain about which direction to take. A meditative and contemplative approach will prove wise because they are also core features of your next major phase.

Capricorn (Dec 21 – Jan 19)
The past several weeks have likely been strewn with strife and complexity. This may have especially been the case in your most intimate relationships. Yet there is reason to say that the clouds are beginning to clear and all being well you have broken through to the next level. A new wave of optimism and excitement is on the rise and it may include travel and adventure.

Aquarius (Jan 19 – Feb 19)
If you have been waiting patiently for some fun and perhaps some romance too, this is a good time for it. You may have to make some extra efforts to realize your dream. Yet the flow is heading your way and realizing success may be easier than usual. Be open to receive and count your blessings to attract even more abundance.

Pisces (Feb 19 – Mar 20)
A busy cycle continues requiring you to give more than usual. Yet the rewards of an expanded social front are already coming in. These will continue for the next several weeks. Whether for personal or professional success, you are entering a cycle which includes the prospects of new opportunity and a wider scope of exposure to share your gifts, talents and skills.

Adoptable Pets August 25 2015 – Vince & Sully http://ilovenelson.com/adoptable-pets-august-25-2015-vince-sully/ http://ilovenelson.com/adoptable-pets-august-25-2015-vince-sully/#respond Wed, 26 Aug 2015 17:49:50 +0000 http://ilovenelson.com/?p=288900 VinceSullyVince and Sully are a bonded pair of 6-month-old male Lionhead/Flemish Giant cross rabbits. They both have wonderfully soft coats and the characteristic Lionhead mane, Sully with grey colouring and Vince with grey and brown. They were surrendered to the BC SPCA due to the owner having too many animals.

Vince and Sully are very friendly and well socialised, and will even approach you to say hello. Both are happy being handled, though Vince can be a bit nervous at first. Vince and Sully really enjoy running around and jumping, climbing up on their perch, and getting little chin scratches. They are relaxed bunnies who enjoy lounging around together and chomping on hay and vegetables.

Vince and Sully would do best in a home that can provide lots of interaction with them and plenty of room to run around. Due to their mixed breed, it is difficult to know what their full size will be; they currently weigh just over the average size of a full-grown Lionhead breed. They may live up to 7-10 years of age, so will need a forever home that can commit to loving and caring for them for this length of time.

If you are interested in Vince and Sully, come meet them at the BC SPCA Nelson Branch or call 250-352-7178.

On August 25, 2015 at approximately 11:25 am, the Nelson Police Department received a complaint of a cougar sighting in the 2400 block of Perrier Road. Information received was that cougar was sighted in the area on August 23, 2015 at approximately 3:00 am and that the cougar was last seen heading towards Perrier Lane/Silverking Road area.

The Nelson Police Department would like to remind the public that if you come into contact with a cougar that does not run away, stay calm, stand your ground and do not back down. Back away slowly if possible and when safe to do so. Pick up children, but DO NOT BEND DOWN, TURN YOUR BACK OR RUN. Running triggers an innate predatory response in cougars which could lead to an attack.

Raise your voice and speak firmly. Raise your arms to make yourself look larger, clap your hands, and throw something you might have in your hands. Do not bend down to pick up any items to throw. This action may trigger a pounce response in a cougar.

Please report any cougar sightings to the RAPP line at 1-877-952-7277 or the Nelson Police Department at 250-354-3919.
