Mayor addresses SmartCentres delays By Martha Wickett MARKET NEWS STAFF

Salmon Arm’s mayor is setting the record straight. On Tuesday, a statement from the mayor was posted on the City of Salmon Arm website regarding retail options and the SmartCentres shopping development. “Some residents have recently expressed concerns about the lack of retail options available in Salmon Arm. This is primarily a function of

the free market but there is a role for council to play by striving to create a positive, inviting business environment,” states Mayor Nancy Cooper. “With respect to the proposed Salmon Arm Shopping Centres Inc. (SmartCentres) development at Trans-Canada Highway/30th Street SW, the following update is provided:” She explains that all council approvals required for the development have been obtained by the applicant. They include: • an official

community plan amendment that received final approval on Dec. 20, 2010; • a zoning amendment that received final approval on Dec. 20, 2010; and • two development permit applications that received approval from council on Oct. 24, 2011. The website statement points out that the issuance of one development permit by city staff is contingent on the applicant fulfilling conditions which include approval from the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure.

Rumours of Target store unfounded By Martha Wickett MARKET NEWS STAFF

What sounded like good news for many people quickly turned into no news. An article in the May 29 Vancouver Sun stated that the American retailer Target was launching a recruitment campaign in B.C., with Salmon Arm the location of one of its 18 new stores. A call to Target showed that the information was erroneous.

Target spokesperson Lisa Gibson checked with Tiffany Monroe, the Target representative featured in the article. “She (Tiffany) actually didn’t mention Salmon Arm so not sure where that came from...,” wrote Gibson in an email to the Shuswap Market News. “To date, we have confirmed 18 stores in B.C., but have not confirmed one in Salmon Arm. Sorry for the confusion.”

plicable charges and the development permit is issued. The website statement also refers to the BC Court of Appeal, noting that “the Court of Appeal Hearing for Neskonlith Indian Band versus the City of Salmon Arm et al (BCCA File No. CA039875) – relating to DP (development permit) 383 – is

scheduled for Aug. 14 and 15 in Vancouver.” As for statements on the proposed shopping centre, on May 22, a statement from Brent Savard of SmartCentres was posted on the ‘Salmon Arm BC General Discussion’ Facebook group. It did not mention that Ministry of Transportation approvals, not city approvals, are central to the delays. “SmartCentres is con-


Target does plan to open stores in Kamloops, Vernon and Kelowna in 2013. The upcoming closure of the Zellers store in Salmon Arm is a result of Minnesotabased Target Corporation’s purchase of 189 Zellers leases. While many of them will reopen as Target stores, not in Salmon Arm, where the lease was sold to Canadian Tire. Canadian Tire has reported it expects to open in spring 2013.

Things are progressing and we have been working diligently with the city to complete all our conditions of our development permit. “We hope to have all the conditions completed in the short term and will be providing a more detailed update to our supporters in the very near future,” was the statement attributed to Savard.

Council considers ‘courtesy flag pole’ By Martha Wickett MARKET NEWS STAFF

The city’s decisions on flags shouldn’t be left flying in the wind. Mayor Nancy Cooper brought up this view at the city’s May 22 planning and development services meeting, noting that the city was recently approached by an organization wishing to fly its flag on one of the city’s flagpoles. The request prompted the consideration of a number of questions, she said, such as flying flags at half mast. “We should have a clear policy on that. When the firefighter was killed in Enderby, we had a discussion about that.” Carl Bannister, the city’s chief administrative officer, prepared a short report for council, stating that staff don’t see the need to formalize the city’s decisions on flag flying. “However, council may wish to consider a courtesy flag pole now or at some time in the future. In staff’s view, if this is pursued it should be limited to ethnic flags recognized by the Government of Canada and not include flags/banners for events, proclamations or other causes (political religious, etc.)... Per-

mitting a courtesy flag would not constitute an endorsement from the city. A registry would need to be created to keep a formal record of which flags are to be flown and when,” he wrote. He also stated that the three poles at Marine Park were removed because they were old and badly rusted, and it would cost about $2,100 to replace one 40-foot pole. Currently three flags fly at city hall: the B.C. flag, the Canadian flag and the City of Salmon Arm flag. Cooper said the Government of Canada recognizes flags from certain countries – peaceful countries or ones connected to Canada, a list the city could adopt. Although the flag poles at Marine Park are down, she said the park would be an ideal place to fly other countries’ flags when requested. Coun. Marg Kentel expressed her approval of having a policy. “I couldn’t help but be 100 per cent behind what you’re talking about.” She said she would want to stick with the list the federal government uses. “I wouldn’t want to see us get into anything controversial..., we wouldn’t want ones

by special interest groups. I totally back it.” Cooper would like to see the Marine Park poles return. “We have a lot of priorities but I’d like to see them back up.” Coun. Alan Harrison said he’d like to see a policy prepared, including having the flying of flags at half-mast be at the mayor’s discretion. He agreed that Marine Peace Park would be an ideal place to fly requested flags. Coun. Chad Eliason said he’s in favour of replacing the Marine Park poles, but only that. “In my seven years (on council), I don’t think I’ve seen one country ask to be on a pole. Do we think it’s a good use of taxpayer dollars? The last one was a specific group. I would support the plan to replace the poles, but is the policy necessary?” Coun. Debbie Cannon was also in favour of replacing the Marine Park poles, and suggested that the policy include the replacement of any tattered or ripped flags. Council voted on having a flag policy prepared, with everyone present voting in favour except Eliason. Coun. Ken Jamieson was absent.

A plan for a new way of dealing with chicken remains has received city council’s stamp of approval. Richard Bell, owner of Farmcrest Foods, and Ruth McDougall, agrologist, came to the city’s May 22 planning meeting to request its support for an application to the provincial Ministry of Environment for a permit. The permit would authorize the discharge of effluent from a smalls c a l e chicken rendering facility. A city staff report notes that “the facility produces a liquid condensate during the rendering process which will be stored in a lined lagoon on site and during growing season it will be applied to the applicant’s land – approximately three hectares annually – to meet nutrient and irrigation requirements...” The report recommended the committee of council adopt a motion that would advise the ministry the city has no concerns with the permit application “provided the operation does not negatively impact surface or ground water and does not generate excessive odours.” McDougall said the

waste – feathers, heads, feet, fat and skin – is now processed in the small rendering plant on site, creating a high protein, poultry meal conglomerate. The conglomerate is sold for use off the farm. During the process liquid waste evaporates, is condensed and then captured as a liquid. “It’s a clear liquid with no odour, it’s sterile because of the heat, not pathogenic... with low levels of fat, oil and grease,” said Mc-

son and Marg Kentel asked about potential odours. “I think because it’s a pretty unique and new process, we can’t say 100 per cent no odours are being produced,” McDougall said, noting if there were odours, they would be during the spraying. “We don’t anticipate it will be a problem, it’s not a problem now. If there are odours that are offensive, Richard is willing to go back to it.” Coun. Debbie Cannon asked if, once ap“When they provals are irrigate with it given, there going through the would be air, will we have the ability the ability to deal to deal with with that, after odour. approvals “When are set?” they irriDebbie Cannon gate with it going Dougall. “There will be through the air, will we small amounts of nutri- have the ability to deal ents, nitrogen and sul- with that, after approvals are set?” phur.” Replied McDouShe said the liquid will be used to irrigate gall: “The Ministry of the crop land, “to pro- Environment has to vide nutrients required respond.

Playing politics with hydro rates The provincial government has done a good thing in scaling back BC Hydro rate increases. The way it is doing so raises more questions than answers. Energy Minister Rich Coleman announced that the government was cancelling a B.C. Utilities Commission hearing into Hydro rate increases, which have already been scaled back from the 50 per cent premium increases initially proposed about two years ago. At that time, the rate increases were suggested to allow for introduction of the smart meter program, purchase of private power and major capital expenses, including turbine installation at several dams and other upgrades. When Coleman was named energy minister under new Premier Christy Clark, she asked that he review Hydro’s plans. The review said that the smart meter program should stay, and that other projects should proceed, but also said that rates didn’t need to go up as steeply. Hydro then asked for an eight per cent increase in 2012, 3.91 per cent in 2013 and 3.91 per cent in 2014. Planned increases had been 9.73 per cent each year. Coleman said Hydro received an eight per cent increase in 2011 and a 3.91 per cent increase in 2012, along with a rate rider of five per cent. The government is now saying it wants a 1.44 per cent increase in 2013, making the rate increase 17 per cent over three years. There was no word of what is planned in 2014 or beyond. Why is there a B.C. Utilities Commission, if the government can simply override its mandate? Perhaps the biggest question is this: Is this all politics, in preparation for the 2013 provincial election? Is this a time bomb being left by the current government for what may be a new government? So far, there are no clear answers. -Kelowna Capital News

Also growing old in the process I cranked on the handle of the reel, my rod tip vibrating all over the place. All excited, I played the fish, a nice little rainbow to the side of the boat. Laughing, my father leaned over the gunnel of our beat-up old Viking aluminum 12-footer, cupped his hand gently under the belly of the fish and held it on the surface of the water for a moment so I could admire my catch. Glancing up at me, he smiled, removed the hook and released it back into the lake. It was a good day on the water. We’d both caught fish. Earlier that morning, my father had caught and released a couple of real nice ones. Throughout the rest of the day, I had a number of hits but continued losing them. “You gotta be more patient when you set the hook” he’d always tell me. I must have been about 10 – maybe 11, but I will always remember that particular day on the water. There were a number of small lakes about an hour’s

More the kind of lakes you could spend the day on without seeing more than one or two other boats over the course of a whole morning – the kind of lake that seemed to suit my father just fine. “This is a good boat we got here,” I remember him saying to me out of the clear blue. “It’s heavy. That’s what you need, a good heavy boat that sits well in the water – that doesn’t rock around when you’re trying to bring a fish in. All those flimsy things they make nowadays, they’re no good – not for two

people anyway.” Then he just sat there silent for a while – contemplative. My father tended to talk in spurts and then sort of drift off to something else that was on his mind. “Nope, getting old isn’t all it’s cracked up to be,” he said after a while. That was the first time my father ever looked old to me – something in his eyes – something in the way he sat there, deep in his own thoughts. I remember wondering what he was thinking. I have wondered the same thing more than once over the years. Some times he would get around to saying something; some times he didn’t. As the years go by, I find myself doing the same thing. Except my dog doesn’t really care whether I talk or not. As a kid, I was always impressed with how much my old man knew about fishing. He just seemed to have a knack for knowing where the fish would be, when they’d be there, what they’d be feeding on, what insect hatches would be coming off the water, what

size of hook to use and what shade of green. He just seemed to know so much. He knew almost instinctively when to set the hook and, more importantly, when to wait just half a second more. I used to like watching him cast his old Orvis Battenkill cane rod. He could cast that old thing better than I’ll ever be able to cast any of my new high-modulus graphite Sages. Looking back now, I think he caught fish for no other reason than because he knew how to be patient. He certainly did have patience. Patience to wait a fish out, patience to sit back and enjoy just being out on the water, patience to wait for the sun to burn the morning mist off the surface of a lake and enough patience to take a kid like me fishing – even a kid who could be as impatient as me. I guess I am still trying to learn how to be patient. I have a long way to go, I know, but the problem is that I’m growing old in the process, too.

Annual General Meeting


June 12, 2012 4:00 P.M.

Pipelines only one part of puzzle Re: MP Colin Mayes’ column on pipelines. It is not the pipeline that concerns Lower Mainlanders, it is the oil in an increased number of tankers moving through Burrard Inlet. Also, the development is in conflict with the Vancouver imperative to be the greenest of cities. There are also substantial numbers of Vancouverites who are anti-fossil fuel consumption to start with and the pipeline is merely a symbol of that. Referring to objections as “phobic” re-

flects previous government claims that Canadian environmentalists are foreign-funded extremists. Being aware of the fact that nature works, and that the jury is still very much out on the human contribution to the planet is not a psychological disorder. Believing that the environment is more important than the economy is not a crime, nor should it be the object of ridicule. In fact it should be the priority, for our children’s sake, and their children. Some of the resis-

tance is due to a widespread objection to oil sands development specifically. This means of extraction and refinement is incredibly toxic and polluting, and is a focus of world attention by concerned agencies and countries. Canada is earning an international reputation for viewing environmental issues as drivel, regardless of the whitewashing. Does it make any sense to derive tax dollars for such things as health services from natural resource development that has the po-

tential to make people sicker, and cost taxpayers even more down the road? Is it not true that much of the cancer epidemic can now be directly traced to chemical substances which have gradually worked their way into the biosphere? It looks like the challenge of democratic governments these days is to maintain their credibility while changing expectations and educating the public to make intelligent choices, like driving smaller vehicles. In short, it is not the pipelines per se that are

Political activism should not get charity status

FROM THE HILL Colin Mayes Have you ever wondered how people can afford to take time off work to protest, especially environmental activists? Well, some demonstrators are paid to protest by various societies, foundations and unions. Investigations have uncovered several environmental groups being funded by charities. Charities are registered in Canada by the Canada Revenue Agency, allowing charities to issue tax receipts to donors. Most Canadians think of charities as groups that work and volunteer for the common good of humanity. The Government of Canada, to encourage financial donations to charities, supports donors by allowing them to deduct, on their income tax return, a portion of their contributions. Charities have guide-

lines and only 10 percent of their funds can be for political purposes such as political advocacy, political pamphlets and posters. Our 2012-13 budget has provisions to ensure the 10-percent guidelines are followed. What the government has discovered is a number of very active environmental groups being funded by foundations outside of Canada by American interests. The Alaska Fishery, for example, has funded environmental groups protesting fish farming on the B.C. coast. Why? Because farmed fish have captured over 40 per cent of the U.S. fish market at the expense of the Alaska Wild Salmon fishery. Anti-fish farm activists are motivated by environmental concerns whereas those that are funding them are mostly concerned with market shares. Some protest groups against the Gateway Pipeline and Oil Sands development are funded through charities that receive money from U.S. foundations with interests in offshore oil. Are these groups funded solely because of environmental concerns, or

are there other reasons? Freedom to demonstrate is a freedom that I and our government will defend, but demonstrate on your own money, not the taxpayer’s dollar. Remember, if you are given a tax deduction from a charity it allows you to claim a tax exemption. The Canada Revenue Agency supports tax exemptions on the premise that the money used will provide service to the common good of citizens and our communities. Political activism does not fall under this

umbrella, in fact, some would say, it undermines the democracy of elected representation. The other question that I pose is: “Should foreign foundations be allowed to fund political activism in a sovereign country such as Canada?” To some extent this does happen in many countries. Now that we have uncovered this in our own backyard, should we continue to allow this to happen?

Carlin Country Market.

Carlin market a fun event for families

OUT AND ABOUT Lynda Hooper Representation from many groups associated with education in the local area made up the Carlin Country Market Saturday, May 26 at Carlin Elementary Middle School. There were vendors of

all descriptions, each offering a unique craft or service. A fabulous fundraiser was popular, with baskets of abundance and a special theme. Each basket was a classroom collective, every student contributing to the cause. With a show and shine, live entertainment, dancers, chainsaw carvers, there was much to see, including a Jaws of Life demonstration. The Shuswap Fire and Rescue departments were on hand to show off some of the skills required in their work.

Changes at market Major changes are taking place at the Blind Bay Country Market, with a new liquor department and walk-in cooler. The BBCM has a selection of liquors, chilled beers, coolers, and ciders available in good quantity; much of the wine is local product along with some imports. There will be a grand opening event Friday, June 8, with complementary cake and coffee served between 8 and 10 a.m. A barbecue fundraiser for

a local charity, is happening between 11:30 a.m. and 2 p.m. Granite Creek Estate Winery is putting on a wine tasting from 4 to 6 p.m. Live entertainment will be provided from 2 to 5 p.m. by Gary Ess. Draws and giveaways are planned throughout the day, with an opportunity between June 4 and 8 to enter to win some great door prizes while visiting the store.

Revamped store to hold grand opening Continued from page 8 Market is, “the little store at the top of the hill, loaded with friendly service.” Lois Barker manages the store, attributes the light atmosphere to her staff. “Everyone who works here takes pride in their work, treating each customer with care and respect, happily serving their needs.” Barker has brought in a line of recyclable shopping totes which also make a fashion statement. The bags come in different sizes, choices of fabric to suit

any colour palette, with a Shuswap label inside, produced by a seamstress in Vernon. These would make a great souvenir for a tourist passing through, but are equally as useful to locals. Next to the freezer, a deli cooler filled with meats, including Sedo’s Old Fashioned Butcher product from Salmon Arm. Fresh produce is available, with improvements soon to be implemented there as well, Barker indicated the space was being expanded. The selection of dry goods is vast, again with local product available where

possible. Just in the syrup section alone there were three choices of fruit flavours, along with the regular buttery, and my favourite 100 per cent pure maple.

Get a hair cut, support cause Stylist Ivan Emde will cut anywhere from 20 to 30 inches of hair from local resident Kimberly May who hasn’t cut her hair in more than five years.

Rescue boat now operating on lake By Lachlan Labere MARKET NEWS STAFF

The volunteer crew of the Shuswap’s new emergency rescue boat finally had an opportunity to put their extensive training into action over the May long weekend. While the boat wasn’t to receive its official certification of operation until Friday, May 18, crew members were promptly ready Thursday when they received their first call-out. “We understand that you are not yet certified and operational until tomorrow but we do have an emergency right now – can you respond?” was the call that came in from the BC Ambulance Service dispatch, according to Shuswap Lifeboat Society director Jerry Silva. “The station leader was on the phone, it was a conference call, and he realized that lives, perhaps, were at risk, so he said yes, we will.” Silva says it was later learned that certification hadn’t been required to react, that the Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue already considered the Shuswap crew fully qualified. And they were ready and the boat prepared to depart in less than 10 minutes. But as it was leaving the dock, a second call came in to stand down, the call-out had been cancelled. Despite the false call, Silva is pleased with the crew’s preparedness,

stating they were reading to go in less than half of the targeted response time. “We wanted to have the crew ready to leave the dock within 20 minutes and that time, it was ready to go somewhere between 9 and 11 minutes, and another time it was ready to go within the same time period,” says Silva. “We can be on the water in less than 15 minutes.” The boat was officially operational 8 a.m. Friday. That night, the boat was called out again, with the first request for aid coming in at approximately 8 p.m. The boat and crew were ready within 11 minutes, says Lifeboat Society director Carla Krens, noting there was a slightly longer delay as an ambulance crew had to come in from Salmon Arm. Sicamous and Salmon Arm paramedics have trained to work on the boat for onwater emergency callouts. Upon leaving the dock, a second call came in for an incident in roughly the same area, says Krens. The injured parties were brought back to Sicamous onboard the rescue boat, and from there, they were transported by ambulance to hospital in Salmon Arm. A third call-out came Saturday afternoon for a medical emergency in the Narrows. “The crew and ambulance attendants were on their way within 15

minutes of getting the call and the casualty was taken to Sicamous and from there by ambulance to Shuswap Lake General Hospital,” says Krens. The rescue boat is

based in Sicamous, and operated under the mandate of the Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue. It B.C.’s first inland station and one of two freshwater stations in Canada.

Columbia Shuswap Regional District NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING PROPOSED: SOUTH SHUSWAP ZONING AMENDMENT (CSRD) BYLAW No. 701-45 TAKE NOTICE that in accordance with the Local Government Act the Columbia Shuswap Regional District (“Regional District”) will hold a PUBLIC HEARING regarding proposed South Shuswap Zoning Amendment (CSRD) Bylaw No. 701-45. The Board of Directors of the Regional District has delegated the public hearing to Director Ted Bacigalupo as Director of Electoral Area ‘C’, being that in which the land concerned is located, or Alternate Director Jack McInally if Director Bacigalupo is absent. At the public hearing those persons who believe their interest in property is affected by the proposed bylaw will have a reasonable opportunity to be heard or to present written submissions respecting matters contained in the bylaw. The Board of the Regional District will not consider any verbal or written representations or submissions after the public hearing. Please be advised that written submissions received will be available to the public and the applicant. Written submissions must be received in the Regional District’s office by 4:00 PM Pacific Daylight Time Tuesday, June 12, 2012 or may be submitted at the public hearing. LOCATION AND DATE OF HEARING: The public hearing will be held on Wednesday, June 13, 2012 at 7:00 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time, and will be held at the lower level of the Cedar Centre, 2316 Lakeview Drive, Cedar Heights, BC. PURPOSE OF BYLAW NO. 701-45: Bylaw No. 701-45 proposes to amend South Shuswap Zoning Bylaw No. 701 by clearly defining a retaining wall and by exempting certain types of retaining walls from setback requirements, while other types of retaining walls would remain subject to setback requirements. The proposed bylaw amendments create new definitions for highway, sight triangle, finished ground elevation, retaining structures and for landscape retaining structures. The definition for setback will be amended by including structures, while the definition of a fence will be amended to exclude retaining structures and landscape retaining structures. Finally the proposed bylaw amendment includes several changes under the General Regulations – Setback Exemptions section which has the effect of limiting the height of fences within the sight triangle area at intersections and exempts landscape retaining structures from setback requirements, except in certain specific situations. The above descriptions of the purpose and effect of Bylaw 701-45 are only general. The bylaw may have an impact on property owners and tenants in occupation within the area regulated by Bylaw No. 701. It is therefore important for all property owners and tenants in occupation to inform themselves fully as to the nature and effect of the bylaw. INSPECTION OF DOCUMENTS: A copy of Bylaw 701, amending Bylaw No. 701-45 and all reports, plans and other documents that have been or will be considered by the Board of the Regional District will be available for inspection at the office of the Columbia Shuswap Regional District, 781 Marine Park Drive NE, Salmon Arm, BC, between the hours of 9:00 AM and 4:00 PM Pacific Daylight Time, beginning Monday, May 28, 2012 and ending Tuesday, June 12, 2012 but excluding Saturdays, Sundays and statutory holidays.

Success for SIFE students Okanagan College: Business team earns a top placing. By Cavelle Layes MARKET NEWS STAFF

Two Salmon Arm students at Okanagan College’s School of Business have been named among the top in the country when it comes to helping others with financial literacy. Tom Arrowsmith and Kris Goralski, both of Salmon Arm, shared in a second-place finish in the Capital One SIFE Financial Education Challenge at this year’s Advancing Canadian Entrepreneurship National Exposition which took place in Calgary earlier this month. Students in Free Enterprise (SIFE) is a non-for-profit student organization where students get together and tackle projects in their community in an attempt to create a positive social, economic and environmental impact. The Okanagan SIFE has only been op-

erating for six years and has already won many awards. Ryan Rithaler, the SIFE Okanagan vice president at the Salmon Arm campus, also was acknowledged for exceptional business acumen. Rithaler was one of the members of the Okanagan team who finished among the top eight in the country at the TD SIFE Entrepreneurship competition. The three men were part of a large contingent of students that took part from all four Okanagan College campuses. “Our team’s performance at the nationals in Calgary caps off what has been an amazing second year for SIFE in Salmon Arm,” said Megan Mills, Okanagan School of Business professor and SIFE Okanagan faculty advisor for Salmon Arm. “All three of these






# The Okanagan College Students in Free Enterprise (SIFE) team have earned accolades. students have been active members of our successful Launch-aPreneur program, and now have these feathers in their caps as well. SIFE Salmon Arm is proof that you don’t need a lot of people when you’ve got the right people.” The financial literacy program team impressed the judges with its three-pronged family life-cycle approach that educates those struggling with numeracy issues, whether they are in elementary

school, college, or trying to make ends meet as adults. Okanagan College also achieved high national standings in other areas as well. Some of these include coming in fifth in Nationals, and getting top six in the Scotia bank SIFE Green challenge. The college also won the Canadian Campbell’s Let’s Can Hunger competition for the third year in a row. The Penticton and Salmon Arm area raised over 80,000 pounds of food this year alone.

Memories of the coffee house days

SHUSWAP PASSION Jim Cooperman This year marks the 20th anniversary of the Salmon Arm Roots and Blues Festival, although one year was skipped just prior to the first year of the outdoor festival at the Fall Fairgrounds. For many years the festival was just one project of the Salmon Arm Folk Music Society, who also sponsored concerts and dances throughout the year. Before the Folk Music Society the Shuswap Coffee House sponsored dances, concerts and many open mic’s in a variety of venues, from 1976 until 1983. In the early 1970s, evening coffee houses were organized as a project of the Salmon Arm Youth Centre, to provide activities for both young people and local musicians. These events were held at the centre when it was in the former armoury and later in the old legion building. A number of factors contributed to the emergence of the Shuswap Coffee House organization, including the building of the youth centre’s log building, the volunteer efforts by music enthusiasts, the role a local store provided as a cul-

tural centre for the community and, of course, the participation of a growing number of local musicians. Although I am not a musician, my love for music and my skills as a producer and a promoter were key in these early days, after I helped build the log youth centre. I teamed up with banjo player extraordinaire Jake Jacobson, who was the proprietor of the Sweet Earth Natural Foods Store. Music jams were a regular feature as soon as the store opened in 1971. And Jake was also a councillor at the youth centre. When the new youth centre opened we had a permanent home for what we called the Shuswap Coffee House. Key to our early success was the help of three Lee Creek musicians, David Allan, Naomi Moriyama and Doug Rawn, who formed the group Homegrown that toured B.C. and Alberta and played in local venues. Doug hosted many of the early open-mic evening coffee houses using their sound system. He remembers that as more people came to play, the fewer songs he had to play and eventually as the organization grew, he was able to bow out. It was only natural for the coffee house to eventually bring in traveling performers as feature acts. One of the first musicians from outside our community to perform was Juno-winning

blues artist, Willie P. Bennett. He wowed us with his incredible harmonica playing and he inspired us to bring more travelling talent to our community. Following this success, we brought in many other groups to perform at the coffee house including Ken Hamm and Pied Pear. From 1976 until 1980, the coffee house was an ad hoc organization that ran on a shoestring budget, with homemade posters, hand-built tables and borrowed chairs. Admission was only a few dollars and young people were encouraged to attend. The Sweet Earth Store served as the gathering place for musicians and music enthusiasts. This is where tickets were sold, notices were posted and occasional newsletters were available. Jake looked after the group’s finances and he was the technician who helped manage the sound system and built our first stage lighting system out of juice cans that we used for many years. The coffee house also benefitted from the close proximity of another cultural icon, the Caravan Stage Company that was set up during the off-season in Yankee Flats and then in Tappen in those early days. After the Bill Miner show, Ron Weihs, set up his Ron the Fiddlers Amazing Juice Bar and School of the Arts in the Sweet Earth store, and

for a few months organized the coffee house, during which time he renamed it the Endless Talent Co-op. One of the disadvantages of the youth centre venue was that we could not serve beer, which was often requested by our clientele, especially for dances. In 1978, Shuswap Theatre leased a former restaurant in Tappen, turning it into the Shuswap’s first live theatre facility. The Shuswap Coffee House also moved into the theatre, which soon became likely one of the best venues for live music that our community has every had. With its low ceiling, good acoustics and roomy stage, it was a perfect intimate location to hold so many fabulous events, including a concert by one of Canada’s foremost acts at that time, Stringband. Another key factor that helped lead to Shuswap’s current reputation as a cultural centre also occurred in 1978 when Rick and Linda Tanaka moved to the Shuswap from Ontario. Rick became the director of the youth centre and remembers how they chose to move to the Shuswap because there was “a live theatre, a film society and a coffee house.” The next column will be about how our ad hoc group formed a society and organized a plethora of events including the Shuswap’s first music festival.

• Full Hair & Esthetic Service

The vision to develop agricultural programming as a ‘flagship’ program for Okanagan College, Salmon Arm is part of this larger community-driven plan to create a downtown community campus. This would be a multi-purpose development including the relocation and expansion of Okanagan College - to transform the city’s downtown into a vibrant hub of cultural, educational and commercial activity providing economic and social benefits to the entire Shuswap region. Okanagan College, in collaboration with the Downtown Community

• Axxium Gel Lacquer System

Campus committee, is exploring the potential of educational programs in agriculture becoming a new and major focus for the Salmon Arm campus, starting on the existing campus and, as enrolment grows, attracting students from other regions on a new downtown community campus. The University of the Fraser Valley (UFV) is very interested in a partnership with Okanagan College, with UFV providing the initial courses and expert instruction, and eventually becoming a receiver of students from the Salmon Arm campus to feed into their existing cer-

tificate, diploma and degree programs on the UFV Chilliwack campus. Through this partnership, two new programs – livestock and horticulture, are anticipated to start in the fall of 2012 at the Salmon Arm campus. With this in mind, representatives from the agriculture department of the University of the Fraser Valley came to Salmon Arm on Tuesday, May 22 to provide information about their current agriculture program and what would best meet the needs of the Shuswap agricultural industry. They met with local farmers, pro-

ducers and related allied industry to discuss the content of UFV’s newly developed agricultural programs, the appropriateness of their livestock and horticultural programs to the Shuswap and the education components needed for future expanded program development to meet predicted skill shortages in the Shuswap agricultural industry.

#Smoke billows into the sky from a Pritchard wildfire that burned more than four hectares Saturday.

Air attack helps quell fire By Cavelle Layes MARKET NEWS STAFF

A Pritchard wildfire burned about four-anda-half hectares before local firefighters were able to get it fully contained. According to Fire Information Officer Kevin Skrepnek, the call came in around 10:30 a.m.

on Saturday, May 26, reporting a fire in the Pritchard area. A total of 25 Pritchard firefighters spent about six hours trying to knock the fire down. Crews doused the surrounding areas with water in an attempt to keep the fire from spreading to the field of dry sagebrush that lay directly

beside it. Fire trucks made continuous trips to the South Thompson River to fill up their tanks with water before making their way back up the hill. Smoke could reportedly be seen billowing out of the area as far as Kamloops. With the help of two Conair air tankers

# A dog shelter to be completed by the end of July is now under construction at the Village of Chase Public Works yard.

Chase to get dog pound Village of Chase bylaw officers responsible for dog control have had to take animals home with them, with no other recourse available.

There is now a building under construction to temporarily house problem dogs as they are taken into control by the village. According to Chase

Public Works Supervisor Pat Regush, construction of the animal shelter will be completed by the end of July. The Village of Chase is in negotiations with

BC Commissionaires regarding bylaw enforcement possibilities. There is also discussion ongoing including dog control bylaw enforcement.

Citizen opposes change to proposed bylaw Continued from pg.17 guishing the difference between a modular and a stick-built home can be difficult. Over the past few Village of Chase council meetings, owners of

the Pine Street mobile home park have been in attendance, requesting a dated change in a bylaw limiting the number of stick-built homes within a mobile home park. With the owners having the ability to

build the home themselves, the stick built option can be more economical than purchasing a pre-built modular home. Concerned citizen Mary Porter has been opposing the change to the mobile home by-

law, referencing documentation dating back to 1978. Review of the documentation is in the hands of village administrators, with the matter to be addressed at a council meeting in the near future.

For more information on the Turtle Valley Donkey Refuge, see their web page at: www.


Visiting the Turtle Valley Donkey Refuge Society is as educational as it is pleasurable. These gentle creatures are more than willing to return the affections of anyone with emotional or physical need. They are protective and sensitive, therapeutic in nature. Shirley Mainprize and Rob Miller started out small, rescuing one donkey at a time. The herd has grown greatly over the fast five years, beyond expectations. They operate totally by donated funding, dedicating most of their energies to protecting and nurturing miniature, standard, and mammoth-sized donkeys. There is also a ‘special needs’ barn, where animals injured psychologically or physically are segregated, to avoid further risk of harm. Miller was given instructions several years ago to get his affairs in order, expecting to have succumbed to the effects of leukemia five years ago. He attributes his new lease on life, now with cancer in complete remission, directly to the therapeutic interaction with the donkeys. Donkeys were brought to North America with Christopher Columbus. Useful for all sorts of work, they

Columbia Shuswap Regional District NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING PROPOSED: ELECTORAL AREA ‘F’ OFFICIAL COMMUNITY PLAN AMENDMENT (CSRD) BYLAW No. 830-7 TAKE NOTICE that in accordance with the Local Government Act the Columbia Shuswap Regional District (“Regional District”) will hold a PUBLIC HEARING regarding proposed Electoral Area ‘F’ Official Community Plan Amendment (CSRD) Bylaw No. 830-7. Bylaw No. 830-7 may affect all of Electoral Area ‘F’.


# Darlene Trowsse is beaming as a steady stream of customers browse through Chum n’ Luba Unique Boutique.

Unique Boutique opens doors on Shuswap There was an air of mystery as one walked by 826 Shuswap Ave. over the past few weeks, with polka dot paper obstructing the view through the windows. At last, the paper has been removed to reveal a new shop and proprietor Darlene Trowsse is delighted to be opening after much hard work. There are eye-catch-

ing items everywhere you look, one-of-akind vintage fashions, antiques and fabulous finds. Antique displays are also available for purchase. They add to the charming atmosphere, showing off jewelry and accessories to go with racks of clothing. There is a separate lingerie room toward the

back of the shop, next to a large dressing room and tastefully decorated for comfortable try-on assessment. The name Chum’ n’ Luba carries some sentiment as they are the names of Trowsse’s well-loved inlaws, who passed away a while ago. She said Chum’s name was actually Walter, but he got the nick-

name while serving during the Second World War. Trowsse said her inlaws were wonderfully hospitable; the shop name is a legacy from a fondly remembered couple. Chum n’ Luba is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., and during special events.

PURPOSE OF BYLAW NO. 830-7: Bylaw No. 830-7 proposes to amend the Electoral Area ‘F’ Official Community Plan Bylaw No. 830 by incorporating changes originating from the Scotch Creek Neighbourhood planning process, in addition to amendments which will provide clarification and consistency.

The above description of the purpose and effects of Bylaw No. 830-7 are only general. The bylaw may have an impact on property owners and tenants in occupation within the area.

On my break one sunny day last week, I was on the front steps of our building watching people go by. But among those enjoying the sunshine it was a surprise to see, in the space of just a few minutes, two young men searching for cigarette butts on the sidewalk. One of the men managed to find several butts and smoked one after the other, urgently. The other held up his “prize” to his friend with jubilation, then tucked it away and left. People have told me about times they’ve resorted to smoking butts, but I had never actually seen anyone do it. I felt sad watching this act of desperation. Why would someone put themselves at risk for serious infections in addition to tobacco-related diseases like cancer, lung and heart disease? Tobacco addiction, poverty and mental illnesses often play a role. Rates of tobacco use and addiction are much higher among the poor and mentally ill. A recent Canadian study reported smoking rates among the homeless at over 80 per cent. These populations also bear a disproportionate burden of tobacco-related illnesses.

It can be challenging to treat tobacco addiction among people with mental illnesses who also live in poverty. We often mistakenly assume that dealing with tobacco use may be pretty low on the priority list for people struggling to meet their basic needs. However, research shows many of these smokers do want to reduce or quit using tobacco, often motivated by concerns about their health. It is important to remember that, with the right supports, they can achieve this goal. Mental health workers, social service workers, physicians and pharmacists can all play an invaluable role in supporting their efforts. In B.C., limited finances are now less of a barrier for those who wish to quit smoking. We have free QuitNow Services and financial coverage for nicotine gum or patches and other quit smoking medications through the B.C. Smoking Cessation Program. For more information visit or speak to your health care professional. World No Tobacco Day, May 31st, was created in 1987 by the World Health Organization, to raise awareness about the global tobacco epidemic.

In Memoriam

Never Far Away… NICHOLAS COLE LARSEN Sept. 9, 1986-June 1, 2011 I have laid awake so many nights, asking myself why? Would it have been easier, if I had a chance to say goodbye? I’m so thankful that I called that night, to let you know I cared. But what happened a few short hours later, every parent should be spared. There’s so many things I would have said, if I could turn back time. How much I loved you, how proud I was, and thanked God that you were mine. I know that this is not what you would want – the sadness, pain and tears. You would tell me all will be okay, you had me 24 years. But my soul just won’t keep searching, for your presence here on earth. My love for you was oh so strong, from the moment of your birth. And I miss you still with all my heart, my life is not the same. I cannot stop the tears that come, when I hear the whisper of your name. I try to find the strength, to give comfort to your Dad. I see how much his life too, has changed, his heart is broken and he’s so sad. Your brothers and your sister, their pain is far too deep. All that they have left of you, are the memories they keep. You were born an original, and that is how you stayed. You never judged others, for the mistakes that they made. You lived your life an adventure, there were so many things you had seen. The motto you always followed, was live life to the extreme. You stood by your beliefs, never would you back down. And for your family and your friends, you always were around. Loyalty and truth was the rule you lived by. You never broke that rule, even on the day you died. You were known as the Viking, by your friends who thought of you. As a man of his word and his loyalty was true. And so, my dear son Nicholas, even though you left us here, you are never far from our thoughts, we all keep you very near.

Have Your Visa or Mastercard Ready Established accounts will be offered billing. The Salmon Arm Observer classifieds is proudly distributed to homes throughout the Shuswap.

You are so very loved… Mom, Dad, Jesse, Bernedette, Ryann, Ellincia, Brett, Kadie, your sister Fawn, and all your family and friends.

TRIENTJE (TRYN) NYLAND “Trientje (Tryn) Nyland (nee dewal) died peacefully in Salmon Arm on May 21, 2012 at the age of 91 years. Her family was at her side. She was predeceased by her husband Popke (Pete) in 2006, and her brother Jan dewal in Holland. Tryn was born in Holland and emigrated to Canada in June, 1953, settling in Salmon Arm in 1955. With a young family to support, she worked at several jobs, including Noca Dairy (where A&W is now). She ran a small corner store across from the former J.L. Jackson school where she made the best French fries. As with any marriage, she was the mainstay of support for Pete’s ventures in Salmon Arm Taxi in 1957 and later his venture into real estate sales. She was also of great support to Rik and Len’s interest in various sports. When “J” Lanes started the bowling alley, she and Pete were among the first to get involved in the various leagues, winning numerous trophies for high averages etc. Tryn also loved to fish and went as often as they could, on the Shuswap Lake as well as some of the smaller lakes in the area. Her favourite was Summit Lake near Nakusp. She is survived by her sons, Rik (Brenda Brierley) and Len (Carolyn) both of Salmon Arm, brother Klaus (Trientje) dewal in Holland, sister Lammie (Gys) Wardenburg also in Holland, grandchildren, Todd (Leah) Nyland of Langley, Tonya (Simon) Larvin in Salmon Arm, Tracey Nyland in Lethbridge, and Tasha Nyland in Salmon Arm, her great grandchildren, Teagan Larvin in Salmon Arm, and Trevor and Reese Nyland in Langley. The family would especially like to thank the staff at Piccadilly Care Centre for their care of Tryn. They became her extended family for the past four plus years and she felt so secure there. There will be a private family service at a later date.” Arrangements entrusted to FISCHER’S FUNERAL SERVICES & CREMATORIUM LTD., Salmon Arm, (250) 833-1129. EMAIL condolences and share memories at

It is with the greatest sadness and heavy hearts, that we announce the loss of the most wonderful, caring, generous and loving wife, mother, grandmother, daughter, sister, aunt, great aunt, cousin teacher and friend. Joan was born in New Westminster on March 10, 1944. She lived in Haney for 11 years and then moved to New Westminster where she completed the rest of her public schooling. She attended U.B.C. for two years and completed her basic teacher training. It was during her first year at university that she met the love of her life, Gordon. They were married June 15, 1963. This marriage of almost 49 years was filled to the brim with love, respect, admiration and friendship that never faded and never will. Joan and Gord had many adventures in Courtney, where Joan taught for two years, Vancouver for one year as Gord returned to U.B.C. , and then on to Texada Island for three years. It was then time to settle in Salmon Arm, build a home and start a family, Kevan (1971), Krista (1973) and Jodie (1974). When the kids were in, or approaching school- age, Joan returned to teaching part time. Joan was a passionate, dedicated teacher who loved her students, parents and colleagues. Her desire to travel was the only thing that tore her away from her love of teaching, so she finally accepted retirement in 2002. She was able to enjoy travelling with her soulmate and husband, Gord, to many places. However, her goal of seeing most of the countries of the world was interrupted by her short battle with cancer. Left to cherish the memories are husband Gordon, children Kevan (Narcena), Krista (Troy) McLean, Jodie Wentworth, mother Lois Phillips, brother Bill Phillips, sister-in law Doreen (Harvey) Pomrenke and many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends. She fought hard for a little more time with her precious grandchildren, Draven Wentworth, Kieran McLean and a grand-daughterto-be Rachel McLean. A more loving, special grandmother is not to be found. To honour Joan`s wishes, no funeral service will be held at this time, but a celebration of her life will be held later in the summer so family and friends can gather. Should friends desire, donations in Joan`s name, could be made to the Shuswap Lake Hospital Foundation, the Canadian Cancer Society, or a charity of ones` choice. Our sincere appreciation is sent to Dr. Plessis, Dr. Main, and all those who gave care during Joan`s battle with cancer. Good bye our Joan. Rest in peace. You have touched so many in your life and will always continue to be remembered, loved and cherished. On-line condolences can be sent to www.

Notice is hereby given of the public review period for the 2012-2022 Woodlot Licence Plan (WLP) for Woodlot Licence (WL) 0337. WL 0337 has development units located on Silver Star Mountain, in Turtle Valley along Hazel Creek, east of Enderby along Harland Creek and in Coldstream south of Becker Lake. The WLP outlines the resource values and management strategies for those values associated with the Woodlot. The WLP is consistent with the Okangan-Shuswap Land and Resource Management Plan and the Forest and Range Practices Act.

Please help us.

Prior to approval from the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations, the WLP is available for review and comment by First Nations, the public and resource users until July 31, 2012. The WLP may be viewed by contacting Jody McCall, RPF PAg for an appointment at (250) 545-9749. The WLP may be amended as a result of written comments received on or before July 31, 2012. Comments received after this may not be included in this plan, but may be considered for future development. Please address comments to Woodlot Licence 0337, PO Box 28070, Lavington, BC, V1B 3L9 (attn.: Jody McCall, RPF PAg).
