Downtown campus committee: Group presents vision for future development. MARKET NEWS STAFF

The vision has been revealed. The Downtown Community Campus Committee announced its hopes and plans for a campus downtown during the annual general meeting of Downtown Salmon Arm Tuesday night. One of the big questions the public has asked is where? Committee chair Bill Laird put an end to speculation when he said the committee would like to build on the former JL Jackson school site. He emphasized that the land has not been purchased, but it’s the location the committee has set its sights on. “The dream is four or five acres on the southwest corner,” Laird said. He noted that the site is about 12 acres, including the Downtown Activity Centre, and the committee would not want to disturb the centre as it provides valuable services. The current college campus is about five acres, but doesn’t have the ability to go up or out. The preliminary vision for the new campus would be to build two to three storeys high, Laird said. Another aspect of the plan would be a performing arts centre. “It is our opinion, a wise

place to put the theatre would be on this site,” Laird said. “The college could use it part of the time. In this day and age, we don’t think it’s wise to build a singleuse building anymore. We are very enthusiastic about a new performing arts theatre in the community, but again feel these uses can complement each other.” Laird also pointed to the possibility of a pedestrian underpass near Wing’s Restaurant that would go under the Trans-Canada Highway and connect the campus to the rest of downtown. In addition to Laird’s comments, Margaret Hardy, DCC co-ordinator, spoke about hopes for college programming. Noting the growing emphasis on food security and sustainability, Hardy pointed out that the average age of a farmer is 57 years old. “So education for agriculture is key, of the absolute and utmost importance if we’re going to be able to continue to eat,” she said. “We are going to be proposing that Okanagan College has agriculture as its flagship program.” Helping to achieve that vision, she said, is an interest from the University of the Fraser Valley, which has a significant agriculture program, in partnering with Okanagan College to pro-

Another exciting plan, she says, is to create a building with a ‘green’ roof and wall, that would provide a living classroom for students. Emphasized Laird regarding the whole college plan: “We need to see this vision, talk about it, support it and we will achieve it.”

SHUSWAP Stomp asks CSRD to halt enforcement

Motorcycle rally: Group wants bylaw exemption for Silver Creek properties. By Barb Brouwer MARKET NEWS STAFF

Columbia Shuswap Regional District board members were to consider a request to temporarily dispense with bylaw enforcement on two Salmon River Road properties at Thursday’s regular board meeting, held after press deadlines. After having to cancel last year’s Summer Stomp, organizers are hoping to bring the longtime annual event back to Silver Creek from July 18 to 22. Advised by the regional district they could no longer use their longtime venue, Silver Creek Community Park, organizers last year attempted unsuccessfully to get approval to hold the event on two private properties just north of the Silver Creek Store. This year, stomp organizers have entered into an agreement with two property owners about two kilometres south of the park. In an April 2 letter to the board, stomp organizers Steve Hammer and Gord Erickson indicated they will operate within riparian rules, will advise surrounding neighbours of the event, will submit a parking, emergency and traffic safety plan to CSRD and other governing bodies on or before June 30. They were asking CSRD to provide a temporary use permit and suspend bylaw enforcement on the two properties intended to be used for the stomp. But CSRD Development Services planning assistant Dan Passmore says zoning in Salmon Valley Land Use bylaw 2500 does not permit commercial use, which organizers need in order to hold the event. “We don’t have provisions within the bylaw for temporary use,” Passmore says. “If they’re going to use rural property for commercial purposes, it’s contrary to permitted use of bylaw, and therefore would be subject to bylaw enforcement should we receive a written complaint.”

Passmore says when CSRD reviewed the issue last year with regard to the two other properties, both within the Agricultural Land Reserve, part of the report to the board was the land-use issue. “This time around, the property they’re proposing is partially in ALR, but they’re proposing the event be on the part that is non-ALR,” he says. “Last year’s report deals with a lot of the same issues only in this case it will be specific to this site.” Calling the stomp a “non-event” until it receives approval, Hammer says negotiation and discussion has been held with Neskonlith band members with regard to property used for last year’s Sturgis North event and could be an option for the future. But, he adds, Silver Creek is the preferred location for the event that is scheduled to run the same weekend as Sturgis North, which will take place at the Motoplex Speedway north of Vernon, and Armstrong Metalfest, billed as Western Canada’s largest metal music festival. “The stomp has always been in Silver Creek and we just wanted to make sure it went again,” he says, noting the stomp has always run on the third weekend of July. “It’s not only the ones that loved to go to the stomp that missed us, but also the charities that we contribute to dearly missed it last year.” Hammer says the event has raised anywhere from $15,000 to $27,000. And while Shuswap Hospice has been a regular recipient, as has the Salmon Arm Elks who help out on the gate, others such as the SPCA, Silver Creek school and Silver Creek Recreation Society have also benefitted. “The community of Silver Creek is 99 per cent behind holding the event there,” he says. “We’ve had lots of positive feedback; we got stacks and stacks of support letters that we delivered to Dan.”

Program offers smart approach to septic The Columbia Shuswap Regional District is launching a new program this week to address the growing issue of wastewater contamination in the region. Septic Smart will offer onsite septic system owners a number of free resources to help them save money, extend the life of their systems and help the environment. Population growth in the Shuswap is putting pressure on the natural environment. Many homes built in the area do not have adequate septic systems to treat wastewater before it is reintroduced into the environment, groundwater and the surrounding lakes. “Wastewater contamination is already

an issue in the Shuswap and Mara lakes. By launching Septic Smart, the CSRD is taking a proactive role in addressing this growing concern,” says Darcy Mooney, CSRD environment and engineering deputy manager and project co-ordinator. “We’re hoping septic owners will use this reference material because the benefits of proper septic maintenance will save them money and the environment.” Developed by waste management professionals, Septic Smart includes an easy-toread homeowner guide that covers the types of septic systems and the most cost-effective way of maintaining them. Online videos offer

great how-to tips, ranging from locating your septic system to understanding what can go down the drain and minimizing impacts. The program also includes a children’s activity booklet which will be distributed in schools in Electoral Areas C South Shuswap, E Rural Sicamous and F North Shuswap. “This is the first time the CSRD has done an educational program of this magnitude,” says Mooney. “When the regional district was working with residents in electoral areas D, E and F during their liquid waste management plans processes, we were given a clear mandate to include an educational component.” Area E director Rho-

na Martin says she hopes this will bring more public awareness to the issue of septic maintenance. “If we can make people aware of how their systems operate, it will be a benefit to everybody.” Details about the program and resources are available to the public free of charge at www. csrd.bc.ca/septicsmart. Hard copies of the homeowners’ guide, brochures and the children’s booklet are available at the CSRD office. There are also updates on the program and local wastewater management issues on the regional district’s Facebook page (CSRD Septic Smart) or follow them on Twitter (@ csrdsepticsmart).

Gallery swings to the sound of jazz A world of jazz continues at the SAGA Public Art Gallery. On Sunday, April 22 at 7 p.m., the Alex Goodman/Brent Mah Quartet performs at the gallery. Hearing them, you’d guess this group of young musicians possessed years of experience playing together – but that isn’t the case. Founded in January 2009, the Mah/Goodman Quartet is Mah Goodwin, Alex Goodman, Karl Schwonik and Daniel Fortin. There’s something for everyone here – fresh original compositions and interpretations of Radiohead and Pink Floyd numbers.

They play a unique mix of familiar jazz standards and modern, original compositions by guitarist Alex Goodman and saxophonist Brent Mah. Their compositions are widely varied and take influence from swinging jazz, bebop, classical composers, alternative rock, and classic rock. Minimum donation for this concert is also $10. The jazz concert series continues with the cool sounds of the Terry Kosowick Band (Kosowick, Sandy Cameron, Bill Lockie, Jen Dyck, Steve Mennie) at 7 p.m. April 26. Enjoy the sounds of instrumental jazz, swing, Latin and funk mostly from the 1950s and ’60s.

Exploring implications of Mayan calendar What is the significance of the Mayan Calendar and 2012? What happens when the Mayan Calendar ends December 2012? What is the next step for human evolution? Tyhson Banighen, an intuitive, energy detective, water dowser and teacher, reiki master and more, will discuss

this mystery at 7 p.m., Wednesday, April 25 at the SASCU Downtown Activity Centre. In The Mayan Calendar and the Transformation of Consciousness, author Carl Calleman describes the Mayan calendar as a spiritual device that enables a greater understanding of the nature of conscious evolution

throughout human history and how it provides the concrete steps we can take to align ourselves with this growth toward enlightenment. Banighen has an MA in whole systems design. He founded Turtle Island Earth Stewards with a focus on land stewardship and land trusts. He is vice president of The Cana-

dian Society of Questers and is currently a student of Mayan shamanism. The evening is sponsored by the World Service Association, which supports education in India for impoverished youth. Admission is by a suggested donation of $10. Refreshments will be served.

Political commitment wavering? Taken at face value, Finance Minister Kevin Falcon’s bemusement over the Legislature press gallery’s reaction to his noncommittal comments about next year’s general election is well-timed – and amusing – damage control. The Surrey-Cloverdale MLA’s remarks came in response to questions stemming from the defection of Abbotsford MLA John van Dongen from the BC Liberals to the Conservatives. Reporters asked if Falcon would run in the May 14, 2013 fixed-date election. His response: family priorities might take precedence over any political aspirations. Not unexpectedly, one would think, this kicked off speculation on what it meant to the party’s – and specifically Premier Christy Clark’s – future. Falcon noted he goes through the same process before every election. After all, shouldn’t family – as Clark often suggests – come first? Besides, what incumbent commits to running 14 months prior to voting day? Many, it turns out. With good reason. When we cast our ballots for political representation, we are investing in our future. At all levels, we seek visionaries with both long- and shortterm goals to better serve us. The minister of finance, it must be noted, is the architect of the annual budget, projecting our economic needs well into the future. If Falcon can’t commit, Clark must find someone who will. During the divisive campaign for the premier’s job, Falcon repeatedly stated he would be running in the next election, win or lose. What has changed? – Black Press

OPINION

It’s about making the observation Although there is still a bit of snow up in the hills, winter is all but an unpleasant memory. On the other hand, sometimes I feel like the season, and the years, are just flying by all too fast. Maybe it has something to do with getting older. For a fair number of years now, I have been concentrating most of my fishing efforts on a group of small, adjoining lakes known as the Dee Lake chain. Each lake, in its own way, represents a plethora of different types of fishing opportunities. Dee Lake itself is a shallow little lake with fallen trees lining almost the entire shoreline. Island Lake, named because of the island at the far end just before the channel that leads into Crooked Lake, has two distinctly different weed beds on either side of the island that are inhabited by a multitude of sub-aquatic insects. Crooked Lake is little more than a wide channel that connects Island with Deer Lake, although fish regularly travel back and

THE GREAT OUTDOORS James Murray forth between the two lakes. Rising out of the dark stained waters of Crooked Lake are a fair number of deadfalls that make it dangerous to fish when the sun has gone down – when the fish are most actively feeding. The waters of Deer Lake are so clear that a bad cast, or too many false casts will most certainly spook the fish. Over the past three or four years I have made a concerted effort to try and figure out (and remember) how to read the waters of each lake. Quite simply, learning how to read the waters of any lake requires little more than a simple, basic understanding of how to identify fish-holding waters. Such

an understanding is achieved, in part, by making observations and remembering/recording your observations so that you have an idea where the fish might be on subsequent trips. Ultimately, it is the ability to make a calculated guess as to where the fish might be – and what they are most likely to be feeding on. Although fish are relatively opportunistic feeders, I have found that they can also be quite selective. Fish are, by their very nature, relatively wary creatures. If you want to catch fish, you have to think like a fish. So look for areas where there is natural protective cover for both insects and fish, and you will likely find a number of fish hanging around – fish that feel safe and secure enough to venture out from their protective cover to go after something to eat. Now I know there are all sorts of very successful anglers out there who are, well let’s just say very diligent about gathering all sorts of information about when certain insect hatches come off and the migration pat-

terns of fish feeding within a given body of water. I also know that if you save such information in a fishing journal, it can reap huge dividends. I’ve tried recording such information. But mostly, I’m just as happy when I find any sort of notation scribbled down on a piece of paper in my Woods fishing gear bag, and, am able to read my own handwriting. All I know for sure is that if fish appear to be rising to some sort of small, pale greenish-brown coloured insect with mottled wings lying flat along its back, I don’t really care if it’s a caddis fly or a horsefly, as long as I can match the natural with one of the fly patterns in my fly box. Because, after all, when it comes right down to it, knowing how to read the waters is as much about taking the time to make the observations as it is about taking time to write them down. More than anything else, I’m happy just to be out on the water casting my line – whether the fish are feeding or not.

Carolyn R. Christiansen is pleased to announce the opening of

Marijuana can have detrimental effects In response to Todd Lumley’s letter in the Shuswap Market News from April 6: I am a neurotherapist here in Salmon Arm and have a unique perspective on the effects of regular use of marijuana. I do brain assessments to identify imbalanced brain patterns and provide neurofeedback or ‘brain training’

to shape brain waves into more healthy patterns. Those who have recently smoked marijuana or smoke marijuana on a regular basis are easy to identify because they have noticeably higher alpha activity over the frontal area of the brain. Repeated use of marijuana creates a brain condition called Frontal

Alpha ADHD. It is characterized by excessive, repetitive and unfocused speech, poor organizational skills and a compromised ability to plan and complete tasks — in short, chronic use of pot is associated with reduced brain efficiency. Mr. Lumley suggests that marijuana is a less toxic choice than alco-

hol or tobacco. I will offer this quote by Dr. Paul Swingle, Ph.D., of Vancouver, a pioneer and expert in brain assessment and neurofeedback: “Despite all the hype about cannabis being a relatively harmless alternative to alcohol, chronic use damages the brain.” Joan vonNiessen

MP right to be concerned with wider issues It would help if columnist Lynda Hooper knew what she is talking about before spouting off about MP Colin Mayes. There hasn’t been a Progressive Conservative federal party in years. So how can Mr. Mayes be a Progressive Conservative

in Ottawa? That pretty well sets the tone for the balance of her rant. She obviously cannot see beyond the end of her nose if she sees no federal benefits flowing to Salmon Arm. Anyhow, the electoral district takes in a lot more than Salmon Arm.

I was not aware we had slave labour in this region. Is she referring to jobs at Tim’s or McD’s? If so, she would do well to do some research on real slave labour or file a complaint with the labour relations board. I, for one, am glad

our MP is not so parochial as to confine his interests to only Salmon Arm. He is part of the government of Canada. The Hooper column is typical of what can be expected from the local press. Al Schalm

To all residents of Salmon Arm and the surrounding area: I would like to take this opportunity to invite the entire community to join me for a SilverBacks open forum meeting at 6:00p.m. on Wednesday, May 2nd in the Council Chambers at Salmon Arm City Hall. This meeting will provide fans the opportunity to meet me one on one and ask any questions they have with regards to the SilverBacks on and off the ice as well as what my role will be moving forward. I urge everyone in the community to attend, to share their thoughts and opinions on the organization and what we need to improve upon in 2012/2013 and beyond. I look forward to meeting all of you and would like to thank you in advance for your time and consideration. Sincerely, Troy Mick SilverBacks Head Coach/GM

Too many questions about smart meters I attended the meeting about “smart meters” on April 10 at the Sorrento Memorial Hall. I was quite surprised to see that “these people” were not all wearing tin foil helmets and carrying anti-electromagnetic wave deflecting units. BC Hydro representatives were not there, but those who were present all seemed to be concerned, community-minded people

looking for more information. As it turns out, so was I! The presenters spoke well and from a scientific point of view, giving and backing up a lot of logical evidence against the installation of smart meters. This evidence covered: health issues, financial issues, – not only the cost of the meters but the future cost of upgrading old house wiring; buying

into all new energy smart appliances to suit the new meters; higher hydro bills for usage at prime times; safety issues with fires starting at new meter sites; old house wiring not able to handle the high frequencies; whether house insurance actually covers the damages; privacy issues with what information can be gathered and democratic issues as to whether we get to have

a choice in the matter. It was all pretty interesting and definitely raised a lot more questions in my mind. Obviously we don’t know enough about this new technology. If you are concerned, please let your CSRD representatives know right away by e-mail or phone. They may be voting on this subject very soon. Mary Stewart

A place for every photo By Lynda Hooper MARKET NEWS STAFF

Tim Thompson started a fascination with aerial photos around the Shuswap, while he piloted his ultralight aircraft. “I have photos of every property around the lake, accumulated over the past few years,” says Thompson, who is a dealer of ultralight aircraft through Quicksilver Aircraft Canada. Three years ago, Thompson opened the Shuswap on Canvas store in Sorrento. He has now moved to the Blind Bay Market, next door to Okanagan Regional Library’s South Shuswap branch. Thompson’s product line has grown from his former location, reproducing photos or any graphic onto any surface you can think of. Canvas, microfibre or wood-veneer are

surfaces accepted by his new printer, which is capable of printing four foot wide prints. Whether it be coffee mugs, floor mats or T-shirts, images can be printed with the ink-jet printer or permanently bonded to the material using a process called “sublimation.” Thompson calls his offshoot business, UBU Creations Xpress, “vapour wear.” The process produces weatherproof reproductions on microfibre cycling shirts or perhaps a customized welcome mat. Along with his own aerial photos, Thompson has dedicated space for exhibiting the work of local artist John H. Burrow. There are also vintage wood signs, with various nostalgic Shuswap posters for display. Thompson has an

Ottawa takes B.C.’s advice on environment By Tom Fletcher BLACK PRESS

VICTORIA – B.C. government officials have warmly welcomed the federal government’s plan to leave all but the largest environmental assessments to provinces and place strict timelines on project approval decisions. Federal Natural Resources Minister Joe Oliver announced the changes Tuesday, acknowledging provincial requests to move to a “one project, one review” approach and an end to long, uncertain federal reviews that duplicate provincial hearings. Oliver’s ministry cited several examples, including the NaiKun Wind Energy proposal for an offshore wind farm in Hecate Strait near Haida Gwaii. The

federal approval came 16 months after the province had given the project the green light. Premier Christy Clark said all the western premiers have been calling on Ottawa for most of the last decade to end the duplication in environmental reviews. “It’s good for the economy to try to make sure that we can get projects to a yes – or to a no – in as timely a way as possible, because that is good for investment,” Clark said. Oliver said there are more than 40 federal government departments and agencies that currently have responsibility for project reviews. That will be reduced to three: the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency, the National Energy Board and the Canadian Nuclear Safety Com-

mission, and reviews will be limited to two years. The National Energy Board is currently holding hearings on the proposed Enbridge Northern Gateway oil pipeline proposal from Alberta to Kitimat. It is also expecting an application from Kinder Morgan Canada to expand capacity of the Trans Mountain oil pipeline from the Edmonton area to Burnaby. Clark said the B.C. government will wait for the federal review to be completed before taking a position on either project. She criticized Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson and Burnaby Mayor Derek Corrigan for their recent statements opposing the Kinder Morgan proposal. “I think some of the

mayors have decided that they know how the process is going to turn out, and they know all the information that will be presented and they’re able to tell us in advance what the risks might be,” Clark said. B.C. Environment Minister Terry Lake said until the province has studied the federal legislation, he won’t

Ph: 250-836-3070 Fx: 250-836-2359

be able to say whether B.C. will need changes to take greater responsibility for project assessment. But he denied suggestions that standards may be weakened. “We will continue to have a bar that’s set very high for environmental protection in the province of B.C.,” Lake said.

Business skis into contest win By Martha Wickett MARKET NEWS STAFF

In the end, they were all winners – and, in this case, that’s not a cliché. Nine teams took part Friday evening in the final segment of the Shuswap Launch-a-Preneur program, Salmon Arm’s version of CBC Television’s Dragon’s Den. To a nearly packed Salmon Arm Classic Theatre, the nine teams, whittled down from an initial 23, were first given two minutes each to do an “elevator pitch,” a chance to entice their potential investors into wanting to learn more about their businesses. Speaking in front of the crowd was clearly nerve-wracking for some, but the audience was loudly supportive and presentations were entertaining, with business ideas ranging from customized eulogies to unique building painting. Following the elevator pitches, the judges, who included Kelowna angel investor Ed Alfke, founder of Rent-AWreck, gave positive feedback and suggestions. Luckily for the teams, the judges were much kinder than the sometimes obnoxious investors on the television counterpart to Launch-a-Preneur. The judges stressed the importance of making sure your audience learns what your product and service is, why you’re passionate about

it, what its benefits are, why it is unique and who your market is. The field was then narrowed down to five. Moving on to the next segment – five-minute presentations with props – were: Pandemonium, Hydrodynamic Foils, Okanagan Outback Western Adventures, White-o-Coccoli and OneKan. Brenda Hunter and Joyce Leach of Pandemonium went first, describing their waterjet cutting business that creates locally designed and hand-crafted metal pieces of art, big and small. They emphasized that if people can imagine it, they can create it. Between the presentations, while the judges were conferring, international speaker and author Darren Jacklin entertained and engaged the audience. The next presenters were Okanagan Outback Western Adventures, Laine Keyes and Kyra-Rae Horvath. Keyes spoke of a number of plans for their 400-plus acre ranch in the Turtle Valley. They include summer children’s camps, trail rides, therapeutic riding, horse boarding and the opportunity for the public to participate in day-long cattle drives. Conrad Wilkins of OneKan presented next, showing the gasoline can he has invented that avoids many of the problems of existing models such as spillage and the

need to go through several steps before pouring. In a demonstration with a conventional gas can, he showed how much quicker his invention is. The Hydrodynamic Foils team of Blaine Sholinder, Gordon Jones and Lionel Lyons was next, demonstrating their Easy Rider Sit Down Ski. Sholinder, with one of their skis on hand, explained how his team has improved on other sit-down waterskis in areas of safety, accessibility, stability, weight and maneuverability. The final presenter was Jennifer Ripel with White-o-Coccoli. She explained that her products are personalized cutlery and tableware for children, made out of bamboo from China, a healthy alternative to the plastic and toxic materials of most cutlery and dishes for children. In addition to getting experience and exposure, the teams of budding entrepreneurs were vying for a number of awards with generous prizes including cash, a houseboat package, business consultations, advertising and more. During one of the breaks the audience was given their chance to vote for their favourite team. When the Public Choice ballots were tallied, Conrad Wilkins of OneKan earned the title. Another special award presented was the Green

#Winners Blaine Sholinder, Gordon Jones and Lionel Lyons of Hydrodynamic Foils show off their Easy Rider sit down water ski. Initiative award, which went to Jennifer Ripel of White-o-Coccoli. Then came the three finalists. Taking third spot and a $1,000 prize package was the Pandemonium team. In second was White-oCoccoli with a $3,500 prize total. And the top prize, a $13,000 package, went to... Hydrodynamic Foils. Blaine Sholinder was ecstatic. “Even without winning, it was a great program,” he said, em-

phasizing his gratitude to his business mentor as well as his student mentor from Okanagan College’s SIFE program (Students in Free Enterprise). SIFE took on Launch-a-Preneur as a community project, with support from Salmon Arm Economic Development Society and Community Futures Shuswap. “It was a great experience. A lot of work but it was definitely worth it.”

SPORTS Help needed game days Thank you everyone for your patience with our first year of online registration and while we filled in some gaps with late registrations. That allowed us to add extra teams to some age groups, which meant a delay in putting teams together, but this way it allows all the kids in those age groups to have more playing time. There are now well over 1,100 players registered and it’s going to be a great year. We cannot say thank you enough to all the division co-ordinators and team contacts who stepped forward to help get things ready for our opening weekend. So many hours go into preparing for the season and it just simply wouldn’t get done without these helpers. Please be sure to thank your division co-ordinator and/or team contact if you get a chance.

ON THE PITCH Kevin Harrison Lots of players means lots of coaches. We have an amazing number of these special volunteers, close to 100 of them, and without these people, everything else would be pointless. As always, we’re in need of a few more coaches to step forward in some of the older divisions so if you can help, we’d love to hear from you. Parents, players and supporters – please remember that our coaches are volunteers too. You may not always agree with them, but please be sure to thank them and always give them the re-

spect they deserve. We had a great turnout for all the referee clinics and want to take this opportunity to remind everyone that these young people are learning their roles as well. Although we always encourage players, coaches and parents to thank their referees, regardless of their age or experience, please refrain from making any comments or criticisms to them directly. The referees have a mentorship program in place and in order to continue to have a strong referee network locally, we need to encourage and inspire our less-experienced officials so they learn and grow into their roles. It’s sometimes easy to forget how young some of these referees are and how intimidating it is, so please leave the teaching to the referee-in-chief. As the division co-or-

dinators wind down the biggest part of their jobs over the next week, another set of volunteers is needed if we’re to keep fees down. There will be fields that require game day set up and take down. If you’re approached by your division co-ordinator, team contact or coach to help and you’re able to take the time either before the game or after, depending on your child’s game time, this brief amount of time and effort on your part means we don’t have to pay someone to do it. So with a hope for warmer weather and no rained-out days this season, it’s time to head to the soccer field. Remember – don’t just cheer on your own child, but encourage and recognize good plays by all the kids, demonstrate sportsmanship and, most importantly, have fun.

MP’s duties have wide scope FROM THE HILL Colin Mayes I have always been politically engaged and now even more so after being elected to office. I believe it is very important for all citizens to be knowledgeable of the different levels of government because it has the greatest influence on their lives next to their family. For the most part, people are content to elect someone they see as having experience or some of their same political views and entrust him/ her to do the job. Once

they vote, they want to get on with what personally interests them – a job, family, and community. A few, and I mean only a few, want to be engaged and be heard on every issue I work with. I do appreciate the input. What causes confusion is knowledge of what my job is and what is under the jurisdiction of the province or local government. I have always felt that more needs to be done to educate students on how all three levels of government work. A past article, in a local paper, questioned what your MP was doing for the Okanagan – Shuswap’s local priorities. Well, the four-lane of 97 from Armstrong to Kelowna was funded by our government, as well as improvements in

Enderby, not to mention the four-lane in Sorrento, the bridge close to Three Valley Gap, and in the future, Hoffman Bluff section. Furthermore, investment in the Salmon Arm Okanagan College for skills training were all funded by the federal government in addition to one-third of all major civic infrastructures through many project initiatives. It is important to keep in mind, that this is a large constituency and that my job is to balance all of the riding’s priorities. The article also asked why I thought immigration was such an important issue. Most of the files handled by my riding office are immigration matters. Immigrants of many skills are helping to grow our economy and they are

not as the writer expresses simply performing ‘slave-labour jobs.’ I am in Ottawa for approximately 132 days a year. In Ottawa, I am a member of the Energy Caucus, the CanadaAfrica Parliamentary Association, Canada/Japan Inter-Parliamentary Group, and the Canada- United States InterParliamentary Group. I frequently meet with high commissioners and ambassadors from many countries. I deal with a variety of issues and public policies. In the next month, the Human Resources, Skills and Social Development and the Status of Persons with Disabilities (HUMA) Committee, of which I am also a member, will travel across Canada to assess skills training and labour market shortages.

From the experts at Sanders Medical

Bueckert, Cooper & Co.

When finished, we will recommend policy and investments in various labour market needs. The government does not create jobs. The government lays the landscape for investment by building the infrastructure, especially, transportation, tax policy, and regulatory policy, especially, environmental. By investing in people your government provides them the opportunity to access education, skills training, and investment opportunities for innovation and research. The articles I write to you in our riding papers pertain to what issues I am involved with on a national scope. Some of the issues fall close to home and others do not but my articles are all part of my responsibility in the job I do.

My mission is to provide reliable, price competitive, full scope professional accounting and tax preparation. I take complexity and worry out of your income tax filing. John J. Cooper You need expert accounting B. Comm.

Immunizations protect us all LIVING WELL Immunizations save lives and prevent illness by protecting individuals and communities from the spread of disease. As more people are immunized, the disease risk for everyone is reduced. National Immunization Awareness Week runs from April 21-28, and is a great time to make sure that you and your loved ones are up to date with all the recommended vaccines. It’s free and easy to get all routine immunizations. Just call your local health centre to book an appointment. Some doctors and pharmacists may also provide some immunizations. Vaccines are effective and safe. Vaccines trick your body into thinking that it is being attacked by a disease. Your body responds by making antibodies specific to the vaccine you received. These antibodies stay in your body and protect you from the disease if you are exposed to it in the future. It is much safer to get a vaccine than to get the disease. Most vaccine side effects, such as pain and swelling where the immunization was given, are mild and go away within a few days. The risks associated with vaccines are far fewer and less severe than those associated with the actual disease. Not everyone can be immunized and not all who are immunized will respond adequately to the vaccine. This may be due to a variety of reasons, including age and medical conditions. This is why it is very important for everyone who can be vaccinated to do so. This helps to build a circle of protection around those who need it. For more informa-

tion, talk to a public health nurse or your family doctor. Immunization information and a list of public health offices are available on our website

http://www.interiorhealth.ca. Public Health Offices are also listed under Health Authorities in the blue pages of your telephone directory.

There is also a wealth of immunization information on the ImmunizeBC website www. immunizebc.ca. - Joanne Smrek is a clinical resource co-or-

Earth Day is a great teaching opportunity for parents Earth Day has been around for more than 40 years, and during that time, it has inspired millions of people to increase their awareness of, and their appreciation for, the environment. Since the dawn of the twenty-¿rst century, people increasingly have adopted eco-friendly lifestyles and attitudes, and the continued embrace of environmentally friendly practices and principles has made the struggles of Earth Day pioneers, like former United States Senator Gaylord Nelson, more than worth it. Nowadays, children grow up learning about the environment in school and at home. For example, many households participate in their community’s recycling programs, and such households are raising eco-conscious children, perhaps without even recognizing they’re doing so. While a transition to a more eco-conscious lifestyle might not be

seamless, it’s far easier than many might suspect and even easier for kids who have yet to develop a lifetime of habits that might not be so eco-friendly. With Earth Day on the horizon, the following are a few ways parents can get their kids involved in activities or lifestyles that bene¿t the environment. Address Eating Habits Over the last several years, the opportunities to eat in an ecofriendly manner have increased dramatically. Organic foods have grown more and more popular, and parents can use this growing trend to teach their kids about the environment. When shopping for groceries, choose organic products that weren’t grown with pesticides or harmful chemicals and explain this difference to kids. Shopping locally provides another opportunity for parents to involve food when teaching kids about the environment. Explain to kids

that shopping locally reduces reliance on fuel because products don’t need to be shipped, be it through the air or on the ground, to your community, minimizing fuel consumption. Teach Conservation Techniques Conservation provides another easy opportunity for parents to instill eco-friendly ideals in their children. Conservation is about reducing waste, so conservation techniques don’t involve sacri¿ce. Instead, they involve being more responsible when it comes to using our resources. Parents know full well the constant reminders kids need when it comes to dental hygiene. But use these daily reminders about brushing and Àossing as an opportunity to impart a lesson about the environment. Instead of keeping the faucet running while brushing your teeth, turn the faucet off and encourage kids to do the same. When they ask

why, explain that this helps conserve water, and show them how it’s just as easy and effective to clean teeth without the water running as it is when the faucet is on. This teaches kids that conservation is simple and often just requires minimal effort to make a big difference. There are additional lessons about conservation that parents can impart. For instance, when grocery shopping, always make a list before leaving the house and explain to kids that you do this so you don’t have to make two trips to the store and waste the gas that the second trip would require. In addition, encourage kids to turn the lights off when they leave a room to better conserve energy. Purchase Recycled Products Recycling is a practice that many of today’s kids grew up with, and as a result, many of them might take it for granted, failing to fully realize the positive im-

Turning trash into treasure It’s said that one person’s trash is another person’s treasure. This often applies to discarded items that others ¿nd have real value. But it’s not just those discarded trinkets that can bene¿t others. When trash like food scraps and other refuse can be turned into a fuel that powers machines or reduces solid waste, it can be a win-win situation. An innovation called Micro Auto Gasi¿cation System, or MAGS, is the world’s ¿rst solid waste treatment appliance. The technology is being developed by the U.S. Navy in conjunction with Terragon Environmental Technologies, Inc. and the Canadian Department of Defense for use in military applications and isolated habitats. How the process works is that paper, cardboard, wood, plastic chemicals, food, cloth, oils, grease, biological material, animal waste, agricultural waste, and sludge are loaded into the treatment appliance. MAGS can process up to 40 kg (88 pounds) of as-received waste. The unit then powers a thermal process that “cooks” the waste in a high-temperature, low-oxygen environment, which essentially kills all organic material in the waste. The remaining material is a fuel gas dubbed “syngas.” MAGS uses this fuel to run itself. Any residual waste in the unit like carbon is sequestered as a product called bio-char. It is a carbonaceous material that can be safely placed in land¿lls or used as a soil additive. Terragon says that a MAGS unit can treat the waste generated by a community of up to 500 people in a single day by reducing the volume by 95 percent. A system of waste management such as this can be bene¿cial in many applications. Ships that remain at sea for long durations of time, isolated communities without waste-treatment options, resorts, hospitals, and other situations where waste cannot be transferred to other facilities can use a MAGS unit to get garbage under control. The company has also developed strategies for liquid waste treatment that is married with MAGS into one product. The goal in all of Terragon’s innovations is to sequester carbon to reduce the release of greenhouse gases and other pollut-

ants that can critically harm the environment. While the technology is still in its infancy, the idea of harvesting energy from trash can have very practical applications beyond isolated markets. Some

information indicates that enough trash to ¿ll garbage trucks stretching from the Earth to the moon is generated every year in the United States alone. In America, 55 percent of waste is buried in land¿lls and most

garbage decomposes very slowly. Relying on this garbage as fuel solves the problem of overÀowing land¿lls and the dependence on fossil fuels. Also, the technology protects the environment in a number of

other ways, especially by reducing ground and water contamination. (Although precautions are taken to protect surrounding groundwater, air and rain from land¿ll contamination, few people can argue that

land¿lls are the most ef¿cient method of waste management.) An offshoot of the green movement has been ¿nding innovative ways to handle many of the problems of waste management around the

world. MAGS is still being developed, but could prove an important part of the waste management industry in the years to come.

FOR RECYCLING YOUR MILK CARTONS

Recycling your milk containers is easy. Simply give them a quick rinse and bring them with your bottles and cans on your next Return-It Depot trip. There’s no refund because you didn’t pay a deposit when you bought the milk. Last year Return-It collected over 630,000 kg of milk containers for recycling and kept them out of landfills. Help us recycle even more.

Ceremony recognizes Day of Mourning By Barb Brouwer

# Chase Painchaud shows his intense interest in a rolling ball toy which was on sale as part of the Shuswap Family Market and Sports Swap which was held at the SASCU Downtown Activity Centre on Saturday, April 14. The event was a fundraiser for the Shuswap Family Resource and Referral Society.

Hanging on a wall in the SASCU Rec Centre for close to a decade, a plaque in memory of those who have lost their lives as a result of a workplace accident or occupational disease is about to see the light of day. The ‘temporary site’ was chosen in the mid1990s when WorkSafe BC delivered the plaque. Following a request by two city workers, equipment operator Kevin Hansen and bylaw officer Marcel Bedard, city council agreed to cover the cost (up to $200) of moving a large rock into a garden at Marine Peace Park to display the plaque where it will be highly visible. Hansen says he and Bedard have been involved with the Shuswap-Columbia Labour Council for several years, a place where the subject of moving the plaque from its obscure place on a hallway wall had been discussed previously without result. With one million workplace injuries in Canada every year, Hansen and Bedard believe the plaque should be more accessible and visible. An official dedication of the plaque in its new home behind the Brighouse Nature Centre will take place at 11 a.m. on Canada’s National Day of Mourning, Saturday, April 28 and will include a moment of silence and short speeches by Mayor Nancy Cooper and RCMP Staff Sgt. Kevin Keane. Hansen says he and Bedard are honoured that Doug and Corinne De Patie will attend the ceremony. It is their son, 24-year-old Grant, for whom a statute known as Grant’s Law was introduced after he was dragged to his death in 2005 as he tried to stop a “gas and dash” in Maple Ridge. The formal ceremony will be followed by a community barbecue.

Girls vs Boys We are raising money to send children with disabilities to camp. It costs 2,400 to send one child to camp. Last year we sent 5 children to the Easter Seals Camp in Winfield. We were the Top Fundraising Safeway in B.C. Girls will have their day April 20, 2012. Help us beat the boys. The e girls will have a BBQ as well as win your groceries for free (min. in. $2.00 donation). Boys events will be Sat., April 28, 2012. Please join us in helping less fortunate local kids go to camp.

Looking after our watershed SHUSWAP PASSION Jim Cooperman Shuswap residents can take pride in knowing that the protection of their watershed is continuing to improve, thanks to the work of the Shuswap Lakes Integrated Planning Process (SLIPP). At the April 12 allcommittee meeting, government and public representatives were provided with updates on all the projects underway. There are four streams of activities within SLIPP: recreation; water quality; foreshore development; and education, compliance and enforcement. Significant progress is occurring for all these programs through the work of government agencies and volunteer organizations. While efforts have been underway for sometime in the other three streams, work on the recreation program, which focuses on water based activities, has just begun. A draft situational analysis report about Shuswap water based recreation has been prepared and once it is complete it will be made publicly available in the fall. Many of the waterbased recreational sites have also now been

identified and mapped. Recreation expert consultants based at Thompson Rivers University have been tasked to review best management practices, complete the mapping, identify the issues, the diverse community values and use patterns and present their findings to the SLIPP committees. The final step will be to prepare a recreational management plan with strategies that recognize our region’s carrying capacity and identify a vision for the ideal future condition. A few statistics about recreation were provided that show just how significant this activity is to the Shuswap lifestyle and economy. With three types of users, permanent, short-stay and seasonal, there are an average of 32,000 marine park permits issued per season, 35-40,000 angler days per year, thousands of bird watchers and many millions of dollars that go into our local economy. But, with so many vastly different types of user groups from families to backcountry adventurers, to hard-core partyers, conflicts do occur. Concerns that need attention include, noise, waste, safety, health and habitat and cultural resource destruction problems, as well as access conflicts and a host of compliance and enforcement issues. Water quality monitoring has been both comprehensive and cooperative so that efforts are no longer duplicat-

ed and timing ensures optimal results. Not only are samples now being taken throughout the lakes, but also in those creeks and rivers where there are the highest potential impacts from agricultural practices. Early results are already showing high concentrations of carbon, nitrogen and phosphorus during spring run-off times. The public can now find useful information about the water quality monitoring program at the slippbc.ca website and will soon be able to access the results for specific locations using the map-based database.

“We are fortunate that local governments are now taking a very active role in helping to protect the Shuswap watershed...”

The shoreline development stream is providing some of the best results, especially for its restoration activities. Thanks to a $100,000 grant from the Habitat Conservation Trust Fund, the most serious shoreline modifications such as illegal concrete boat ramps, large rock groynes, and abandoned docks are being removed and the natural condition of the shoreline is being restored. Fifty-three of the

most critical sites have been identified and numerous sites have been rehabilitated at no cost to the property owners, who have been primarily supportive of the program. More education will be underway soon so that lakeshore property owners have an improved understanding of the importance of the shoreline for fish habitat, as salmon fry utilize the gravel and rocks during the year they spend in the lakes. In addition, a comprehensive inventory has been completed for the Sicamous Channel that shows how and where dock structures are consistent with existing tenures. Some of the old, illegal structures will be removed and others will be rebuilt with an improved design, which will help restore important salmon habitat features in this channel. The compliance and enforcement program has benefited from additional staffing and new vessels, with joint patrols on long weekends. As well, there was a houseboat used by the team that was stationed in the Cinnemousun Narrows, so that patrols would be located closer to where problems occur. Thanks no doubt in part to this program, the fatality rate was the lowest last year with only one death. We are fortunate that local governments are now taking a very active role in helping to

# Wood carvings into the beam ends happened over the winter at Quaaout Lodge. The carvings

were created by Bob Whitehouse, commissioned by Little Shuswap Indian Band Chief Felix Arnouse. Whitehead is a wood carver living in the Shuswap (above right).

Art adorns Quaaout Lodge During my visit to Quaaout Lodge a few weeks ago, I noticed something different as I walked into the main building. The carvings on the ends of the beams around the perimeter of the structure were strikingly beautiful. Were these something new, or did I miss them previously? As it turns out, Chief Felix Arnouse commissioned artist Bob Whitehead to carve wildlife creatures into the wood. According to accommodations manager Rhys Laug, “The carving actually took place in October and November last year; there are 12 animals represented in the work.” This is not the first

great high-relief dimension, then with a unique shading technique highlights the details, creating further depth. From an early age, Whitehead has worked to use his natural artistic talents in celebrating Canada’s wildlife heritage. His fascination with the three-dimensional expression possible with wood carving has led to a 20-year career of carving, with pieces residing worldwide. The exquisite detail incorporated into his work has won special comment and awards at juried art shows. True to his roots, Whitehead has continued his attachment to his natural environment, making a home

with his spouse and two teenagers on his hobby farm. When you can’t find him carving, you’ll probably find Whitehead in the round pen, training horses. In addition to Whitehead’s work, there are other works of art and collections of artifacts hanging on the walls of the lodge, some displayed within glass cases. The collection is constantly evolving and changing and there is much to please the eye, helping visitors to gain an education in Secwepemc ancient culture. Now that spring is here, it’s much easier to explore our surroundings, with more to see at Quaaout Lodge.

He was very likable, everyone liked him. He was very helpful.” Arnouse was alone in his car when he went off the road. A gas station attendant nearby was alerted to the crash when he heard tires squealing and saw a large cloud of dust, said Chase RCMP Const. Lora Ford.

The vehicle airbag deployed, but unfortunately the driver was not wearing a seat belt. The car snapped a utility pole in half about 10 feet up and came to rest on its wheels with power lines wrapped around it. B.C.

Miss Chase Rotary Club

Hello, My name is Ashley Arnouse and I am proud to be Miss Chase Rotary Club for 2012. I am 17 years old and I lived in Chase all my life. My claim to fame is my Shuswap name Melqwetes C’Stalnac which means Gatherer of the Adams Lake People. I love to read and write and on my spare time I like to hang out with my friends and family. I am an animal lover, and on weekends I love to go to rodeos. After I graduate I plan to go to the University of Calgary with my best friend, where I hope to study Athletic Therapy. At this point I would like to thank Jacquie, Pam and, Shelby for all their hard work on the Queen’s Committee. I would also like to thank my family and friends for their amazing support. To my awesome fellow candidates, I wish you luck, we all did a great job.

Hello, My name is Danielle Andrade and I am proud to be Miss Safety Mart Foods. I am seventeen years old and am in grade eleven at Chase Secondary School. I moved to Chase four years ago and I am enjoying it here. I love to travel and learn new things. I am Portuguese and would love to visit Portugal some day. My claim to fame is the amount of times I wash my hands. My hands can not be the slightest bit dirty or I will wash them. I would like to thank my friends and family for being so supportive. A special thank you to my sponsor. I would not have been able to do this amazing program without your help.

IN LOVING MEMORY OF A LIFE OF FAMILY, SHARING, CARING AND COMMUNITY We regret to announce that Frederick George Demmon Jr. passed away in Nanaimo Hospital on March 30th, 2012. He passed peacefully after a lifetime battle with diabetes and all the complications that accompany it. Fred was born in Salmon Arm, BC on February 24th, 1943 while his father Fred Sr. was away at war. Like so many born in this era, Fred learned very early about giving and making sacrifice. Fred continued to devote his entire life to service and community. Fred met his wife Joan on the school bus in 1957 and married in 1963. Together, in Salmon Arm they started their adventure and family, adding Glen & Shari. In 1972, they moved to Golden to be house parents at the Kinsmen Group Home, where they hosted and parented over 500 children in 7 years. During these years they were blessed with the addition to the family of Liesa & Danny. Fred opened the OK Tire Store and later Quadra Auto Supplies in Golden and operated together with his parents until 1999. Fred’s community service world started in Salmon Arm, joining the Kinsmen Club but really took root in Golden, where he became a Life Member of Kinsmen and was Charter Member of Golden Rotary Club. Fred served on the Golden Town Council as Alderman/Councillor and Mayor for 16 years. He also represented Golden on the Regional District Board and the Columbia Basin Trust, Auxiliary RCMP and served as a Coroner for many years. Due to health, Fred & Joan moved to Parksville in 1999, where Fred’s value of community service continued. He was elected to two terms on Parksville City Council and became an active member of the Knights of Columbus. For his years of community service Fred was awarded the Queen’s Jubilee Medal. As much as Fred gave, being a part of his community and giving to people was his biggest reward. Whether it was a broken down tourist on a holiday weekend, a kid needing a break, a sport team needing a van, an extra hand to put up a wall, a friendly ear to listen, a voice to give guidance, a town needing a leader or a teammate, a family needing love, Fred gave it all. Fred was love: a husband, father, son, brother, friend and employer. Fred was support, he was caring, committed, willing and devoted… he was community and family. Fred, Freddy, Dad, Papa will be sadly missed but never forgotten by his wife Joan, sister Bev (Colin) Carson, children: Glen (Ramona), Shari (Christian) Leibbrandt, Liesa (Trevor) Taphorn and Dan (Teresa), grandchildren: Stefanee, Natalie, Sara, Rachel, Aidan, Kayla, and Jenna, the Berthot Clan, family, friends, neighbours, colleagues and communities. Fred is predeceased by grandson Conner and parents Fred and Irene. Memorial Service and Interment will be held for Fred at 13:00 on Saturday, May 12, 2012 at Bowers Funeral Home, 440 - 10th Street, SW, Salmon Arm, BC. Information regarding the services and condolences for Fred can be found/sent on the funeral home website: www. bowersfuneralservice.com In lieu of flowers donations may be made in the name of Fred to: 1.

Obituaries

DAVID GORDON CLARK September 22, 1953 - April 10, 2012 Gone but never forgotten Dave passed away the evening of Tuesday, April 10 at Gillis House in Merritt after a courageous battle with asbestosinduced lung cancer. He will be dearly missed by his family and friends. He is survived by his three sons Jamie, of Nanaimo; Darcy (Marilynne) of Merritt and Bill (Kristen) of Campbell River, grandchildren Nathan, Tylar, Jayda, Haidyn, Jenna, Christie, Sarah, Nolan, Hannah and David. Also left to grieve his passing his mother and stepfather Eleanore (Keith) Moore of Barriere, his sisters Lynne Piercy of Edmonton and Shirley McCaffrey of Kamloops, stepbrothers Gerry (Jan) Moore of Surrey, Gordie and Trevor Moore and stepsister Sherry (Phil) Braithwaite all of Kamloops, former wife Cali (Steve) Whiteman of Campbell River as well as numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews across Canada. He is predeceased by his father Jack and sister Kathy (Jim) Mills. Dave “Porky” Clark was born in Rosetown, Saskatchewan in 1953 and although he moved to BC with the family in the early 60s he never lost his love of the farm on the prairies. With his wicked sense of humour, infectious laugh and devilish grin he soon made many life long friends in his new home of Salmon Arm. Dave worked in construction for a few years before settling in at Newnes Machine as a metal pattern cutter where he worked for a number of years while raising his three boys in Tappen. Dave moved to Merritt with Darcy and his family in 2004 where he lived until his passing. Dave was known for his sparkling blue eyes, big smile, quick wit and snappy come-backs. He was a great story-teller, who liked to give endearing nicknames such as The Mouser, Goofy Gopher and Badger. Dave enjoyed woodworking, playing crossword tickets and Sundays filled with watching sports. His pride and joy were his children, grandchildren and his beloved black cocker spaniel, Mitzy. A small family gathering was held in Merritt. A Celebration of Dave’s life is being planned for a later date when his ashes will be scattered. The family would like to say a special thank you to the following for their care and kindness to Dave during his battle with cancer; Bridget, Irene and LNIB Health Centre, Dr. Proctor and staff of the Kamloops Cancer Clinic, Dr. Van Der Merwe, Deljit Dhariwal (WCB), Merritt Home & Community Support, staff of Gillis House and Don Ashley. Thank you also to Dave’s friends Barry, Sandy, Stewart, Steve, Kerwin, Jimmy and Morris for keeping him smiling right to the end. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations in Dave’s name may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society, BC & Yukon Division, Attention: Donor Services, 565 West 10th Ave, Vancouver, BC V5Z 4J4 or online at http://www.cancer.ca/British Columbia-Yukon/How you can help/BC-Make a donation.aspx On-line condolences may be expressed at www. schoenings.com Service arrangements entrusted to Schoening Funeral Service, telephone 250-374-1454.

Robert Babakaiff of Arro Wood Heat Services has been in business for 5 years. A 45-year resident of Salmon Arm, he believes in buying his products locally. After being laid off from Coe/Newnes, he saw there was a need for a reliable wood heat technician. He became certified in the WETT program – which is a Canadian recognized association, allowing him to be able to inspect, install and maintain wood burning stoves and fireplaces. His services include chimney sweeping, estimates and advice on purchasing and installation of wood burning stoves, such as size needed for the square footage, and the best stove to meet your needs. Robert’s motto “Burning Clean = More Green” not only refers to the money saved when keeping your stove or fireplace maintained, it also refers to the environment, as the new stoves burn cleaner and more efficiently. Repeat customers are spreading the word of his fair pricing and thorough job. For all your wood heat needs, call Robert today for an estimate.
