Man swept away by current Seymour River: Search continues for Andrew Wilson of Salmon Arm.


Chase RCMP and other agencies continued a land and air search Tuesday for 24-year-old Andrew Wilson of Salmon Arm, who has been missing since he was swept downstream in the Seymour River Monday afternoon. At around 4:35 p.m. Monday, Chase RCMP received a report that a man had been caught by currents while swimming. Reports indicate that on the morning of June 11, two men, Wilson and a friend, who is also in his 20s, travelled to Seymour Arm for a day hike to Seymour Falls. The two young men were due back in Salmon Arm at 3 p.m., notes an RCMP news release. “At some point in the afternoon, one of the men jumped into the Seymour River to cool off and was swept down river,” reads the release. “The man’s friend made his way to the nearest logging road and flagged down a grader operator, who in

Father, daughters killed in crash By Tracy Hughes OBSERVER STAFF

Three Sorrento residents were killed and two more remain in hospital after a head-on collision in Rosetown, Sask. Sunday afternoon. Doug Janzen, 47, and his daughter Alli, 19, died at the scene of the collision, while Cassidy, 13, was taken to hospital first in Rosetown and then to Royal University Hospital in Saskatoon, where she succumbed to her injuries. The two other family mem-

bers in the car remain in hospital. Patricia Janzen is in critical condition, while her 16-year-old son Cody is injured but RCMP report he is expected to make a full recovery. RCMP say at approximately 12:20 p.m. a westbound car being driven by Doug attempted to pass a semi-truck and collided head-on with an eastbound SUV. “There were heavy rains here Saturday and Sunday and it was raining quite hard at the time of the crash. It appears the spray

off the semi was quite heavy and obscured the driver’s visibility,” says Sgt. Ian Skinner of the Rosemont RCMP detachment. Skinner notes all five members of the Janzen family were wearing seatbelts at the time of the crash. “There were no ejections, but damage to their vehicle was extreme.” Two occupants of the eastbound SUV, a 56-year-old man

Missing: Andrew Wilson, shown in a Facebook photo hiking at MacArthur Heights, was swept down the Seymour River after going in to cool off Monday afternoon.

Helicopter, dive team assist with search Continued from front turn contacted a local resident. The resident called 911. Chase RCMP initiated an air and ground search of the rugged and remote Seymour area Monday afternoon, continuing in

their efforts until it grew dark. The search resumed Tuesday morning at 6:30 and continued into the afternoon in the area that has little to no road access. Chase RCMP along with RCMP air services helicopter, RCMP dive team and members

of the Shuswap Volunteer Search and Rescue team are engaged in the search effort. Wilson’s parents, Lynda and Lorne Wilson, also of Salmon Arm, have been notified by Salmon Arm RCMP with RCMP Victim Services providing support.

Shuswap residents mourn crash victims Continued from front and 30-year-old man, also a father and son, from Plato, Saskatchewan were also taken to hospital with unknown injuries. The 30-yearold is in critical condition, while the older man is expected to recover. Alli was attending school at Okanagan College, after graduating from Salmon Arm Secondary last year, while Cassidy attended Carlin Elementary/

Middle School. The North Okanagan-Shuswap School District #83 crisis team has been dispatched to several schools to try to help students and staff cope with the tragic accident. Superintendent Dave Witt said the crisis team went to the schools on Monday morning and will stay as needed. “Our hearts go out to the family and community as they deal with this tragedy and work through this difficult

time,” adds Witt. Tributes and condolences from friends and neighbours also poured in on Facebook sites. Laura Spengler writes: “RIP Alli Doug and Cassidy – you will always be remembered by everyone. Your family touched many hearts and gave me memories that I will never forget. I know you are looking down on us and smiling, trying to tell us it will be okay. It’s just such a shock.”

Weather rules spring freshet By Barb Brouwer OBSERVER STAFF

Mother nature will once again have the last word. While the BC River Forecast Centre is maintaining a flood watch issued for the Shuswap River June 10 at 7 p.m., local concerns are centred around lake levels. Swollen following several days of heavy rain, flows are expected to remain elevated on the Shuswap River at Enderby, and it may be a couple of days before there is a significant decline, says a River Forecast Centre update. The centre will continue to monitor conditions and will provide updates as conditions warrant. Columbia Shuswap Regional District Emergency Program co-ordinator Cliff Doherty says other river reports indicate the Adams, Seymour and the Eagle rivers are levelling off, with inflow matching outflow. He says officials at the Sugar Lake Dam had to release more water than normal, an act that will elevate lake levels somewhat. “The good news is, we removed the evacuation alert in the Sims Creek Sundance Road area near Sicamous at 1:25 p.m. June 11,” he said. “All the work MOTI (Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure) was doing, armouring the banks of the creek, was to be complete by 4 p.m.” Turning to Shuswap Lake, Doherty said the electronic gauge at Canoe recorded the level at 348.25 metres Mon-

day afternoon. Doherty says the Water Stewardship Division of the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations said Monday morning they continue to believe the lake will crest at a one in five year flood level, probably in the third week of June. “That description is 348.7 metres and similar to where the lake got to last year,” says Doherty. “It’s normal.” That doesn’t mean all area residents are out of the woods yet. “The biggest concern we have right now is beach dwellers – maybe not so much from water levels, but from waves caused by wind or boating activity,” he says. Over at the City of Salmon Arm’s Public Works Department, manager John Rosenberg says he’s hopeful freshet will continue without incident. But in the spirit of hope for the best and prepare for the worst, Rosenberg says the city has put its action plan into effect. Water levels are checked daily and staff are on call 24-7. Rosenberg says reports indicate area snowpacks are significantly lower – down to 60 to 80 percent of what they were. “If we get a bunch more rain, the levels will come up, and if it doesn’t, the lake will flush out well,” he says. “We’re still .4 of a metre off last year.” Public works staff have made alterations to the gangplank at Ma-

Fast-flowing: Longtime Silver Creek resident Doug Haines checks out the Salmon River Sunday, noting its overnight rise. rine Park wharf, where the drop is usually 16 feet to the lower docks but is now almost level with the large wharf. If lake levels rise by another half-metre, Rosenberg says staff may have to do something with the federal wharf in Canoe as well. “The lake moves 15 feet, plus or minus, every year,” he says. “It’s like an annual tide rather than a daily tide. It’s a significant difference.” He says waves can change the water elevation by two feet or .6 metres – something beach residents should keep in mind over the next few weeks. “We’re doing our due diligence – our action plan is in place and we’ll deal with whatever comes along.” Rosenberg and Doherty both agree what comes along will be dependent on the weather mother nature serves up in the near future.

Second hand sells Yuuuup, everyone and their dog these days is capitalizing off the popularity of bargain hunting. Thanks to reality TV shows such as Storage Wars and Extreme Couponing, the value of a deal or a hidden treasure has hit new limits. Storage auctions, garage sales, thrift shops, coupon clipping parties, clothing swaps and such are becoming all the rage in today’s society. As outrageous, and humourous, as some of these popular reality TV shows can be, they have proven that there is money to be made and/or saved outside of your 9-to-5 day job. Following the recession, the timing couldn’t have been any better for such shows to air. Some of those accustomed to an often lavish life have found themselves pinching pennies in recent years and wondering how to afford little Timmy’s new running shoes for school. Ergo – the increasing demand for second-hand goods. Some of us, myself included, have always been bargain hunters at heart (I’ll credit my mom for instilling in me the value of a dollar, or penny at that, and the importance of flyer shopping). I’ve always been the type to do my homework on large purchases, and be prudent with my hard-earned dollars. While I am often guilty of splurging on a brand new T-shirt or Lululemon gear, the other half of my closet is actually packed with second-hand goods. It’s amazing how many unique, albeit gently worn-in, items you can find in the local thrift shop. And when it comes to kids, I get no greater pleasure then receiving hand-me-downs from friends and relatives for my daughter. I think more parents are appreciating the value of hand-medowns, particularly since the little weeds grow faster then we can replenish their wardrobes. But when my rubber arm is bent into going shopping, I still search out the deals. Bargain bins, sale racks and last-season goods are definitely my forte. If I can get a deal, and it fits (both the body and the budget), I’m generally sold. But my weakness for sales aside, I’m really enjoying the newfound respect people are acquiring for second-hand stuff. I no longer have to sneak through the Salvation Army doors and hide between racks when someone I know walks by outside, carrying their designer purchase. In fact, I’ve even spotted a few items I’ve donated to the thrift store on an unsuspecting acquaintance (proving they’re not as materialistic as they come across). The nice part about this second-hand popularity is fewer items are ending up in the landfill. Spring cleaning prompts garage sales versus dump runs. Remember, one woman’s junk could be your next treasure. The only downside to all these new bargain hunters is it could make for a few more stars on another hit show - Hoarders. -- Jennifer Smith is a reporter for the Vernon Morning Star, one of the Observer’s sister papers.



Statistics offer food for thought The numbers published from the Statistics Canada Census indicate we might find the cupboards a little bare in future years when it comes to food that has been produced in Canada. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see the numbers show Canada is continuously gaining more people, while we are losing our ability to feed them. What adds more concern to future food production in Canada is that it shows our farmers are getting older and when they retire the family’s younger members are not carrying on through succession. Frequently prime farm land is hotly pursued and purchased by developers who do not have food production on their agenda. As we lose the farms and the people who work them, so will we also lose our ability to produce sufficient

food for our own means. The only option that will be available to us, is to bring what we eat in from other countries — that is if they have any to spare and we can afford to buy. If we continue to follow what the statistics are showing, we will be going down a dangerous path of no return. Once we lose the ability to feed ourselves we will lose our independence and our sustainable future. Keeping Canada’s kitchen fully stocked should be the goal of every politician in Canada. Agriculture in this country needs more than a fair shake, it needs a bounty of support from government at all levels and in all jurisdictions. You can’t eat ore, oil, or condos. - Barriere Star Journal

The Observer asked:

What was the best thing your father taught you?

Jerry Carnegie “How to be a better father.”

Joe MacNamara “If you keep your mouth closed, hands in your pockets, and your ears open, you will never get in trouble.”

Ken Stewert “How much a family needs a father. He is a very big part of it...”

Rachel Rasmussen “To treat people with respect.”

Tessa Pickell “How to think logically and cope with difficulties.”

Goodbye to B.C.’s Take shave a step further greenhouse gas goals BC VIEWS

Tom Fletcher VICTORIA – In February this column asked the question: “Are B.C.’s greenhouse gas reduction targets history?” The answer is contained in a new draft plan from BC Hydro on how to meet future power demand. And while it’s not explicitly stated, the answer is yes. The draft plan was released in May for discussion purposes, but so far there hasn’t been much discussion. This is surprising given some of the recommendations, such as firing up the Burrard Thermal natural gas power plant more often and buying fossil fuel power from the North American market. The plan confirms a few things that have been evident for a while. Dreams of exporting B.C. hydroelectric power are gone for the foreseeable future. And with mining ramping up along with natural gas development and population growth, BC Hydro now projects electricity demand could rise by 50 per cent over the next 20 years. The emergence of huge shale gas sources in B.C. and across the United States has changed the North American energy picture dramatically, as U.S. electricity producers replace coal by burning cheaper and cleaner gas to ramp up power production. B.C. is losing gas market share in the U.S. Former premier Gordon Campbell’s climate goals officially remain in place: 33 per cent greenhouse gas reduction by 2020 and a whopping 80 per cent by 2050. If the gas boom proceeds as planned, B.C. domestic emissions will not be down, but up considerably by 2020.

Premier Christy Clark has a new target for 2020: three liquefied natural gas production lines feeding high-pressure tankers at Kitimat, for export to Asia. Not only will B.C. need to buy gas-fired power from outside the province to keep up to demand, but the natural gas industry will need its own new gas-fired electricity to produce LNG for export. Natural gas passed forestry as B.C.’s top resource revenue source many years ago. In 2005, the volatile gas price spiked up and produced $1 billion in windfall profits that allowed the B.C. government to buy a rare period of public sector labour peace through the 2010 Olympics. Now a glut of shale gas has pushed the North American price down from its historic range of $4 to $6 per thousand cubic feet to about $2.40. Despite that low price, gas producers in B.C. are going flat out to develop shale gas deposits in northeast B.C. I asked David Pryce, vice-president of the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers, why so much gas is being developed now. He said producers have made huge investments in B.C. shale gas drilling rights, and are in an international race to supply LNG to Asian countries where the price is currently four times higher than in North America. If LNG doesn’t fly here, B.C.’s gas export market soon evaporates. Currently gas producers pay about $400 million a year in royalties, and that much again to buy up shale gas drilling rights. The industry already employs about 12,000 B.C. workers. The B.C. government has little choice but to redefine its climate targets. Instead of cutting domestic emissions, it will try to take credit for displacing coal power in Asia. Fortunately, B.C.’s main coal exports are for high-grade coal used in steel-making.

It’s mighty generous of James Murray and Blu Hopkins to offer to shave their heads in exchange for $5,000 in donations to the Cancer Society. Being that their faces are part of their heads, is it safe to assume

that their faces will be clean shaven as well? After all ‘losing the hair’ is in empathy with those who lose all their hair from chemotherapy treatments. A clean shave from the neck

up on those two guys would inspire even me to donate to the cause. Well, maybe they could keep their eyebrows. Kalene Bourque

Wireless sensitivity increasing I would suggest your readers who think hydrophobia is the result of radiation paranoia read what researchers are finding in other countries where wireless technology has been around for longer. French researchers have shown that Electromagnetic Fields (EMFs) do notably modify blood and brain physiology. The oncology professor who reported these findings is the president of the Association for Therapeutic Research Against Cancer. He sees electrosensitiv-

ity as being a major problem in public health. As one doctor states, “independent and immediate action is required to reduce overexposure of people to EMFs.” In France alone, estimates indicate that up to five per cent of people are electro-sensitive. The proportion of sensitive people raises with the spreading of wireless technologies. Studies show that 10 to 50 per cent of the population will face becoming very intolerant to EMFs in the next 25 to 50 years.

I would suggest that our local media needs to get this information out to the general public as it seems to be squashed by the conglomerates who are owned by the large telecommunication firms. Citizens should contact B.C.’s medical health officer, Dr. Perry Kendall, to demand a halt to this program until science has had time to weigh in on this relatively new technology. Sherry Ridout

Tired of newspapers’ left-wing bias There was a very good letter from Mike Taylor in the May 30 Observer regarding “the lack of media scrutiny” of the NDP’s Adrian Dix in the province, especially in the Salmon Arm area. Many have become accustomed to reading the Observer’s

leftist slant on most environmental and political issues. Taylor’s letter requests the media provide a more balanced look at stories. I would quickly add, which includes stories in the Salmon Arm Observer and Shuswap Market News.

Are you tired of hearing the same old negative comments made against most parties political opinions except the NDP? I know I am! B. Campbell

Tories need to practice what they preach “Mr. Speaker, I would argue that the subject matter of the bill is so diverse that a single vote on the content would put members in conflict with their own principles… in the interest of democracy I ask: How can

members represent their constituents on these various area when they are forced to vote in a block on such legislation and on such concerns?” - Stephen Harper, in opposition in 1994 speaking against a

mere 17 page omnibus bill. Colin Mayes, man-up, and rise above toady status. You know what needs to be done. Dick Barnes

Airfield a labour of love





They had a humble dream to provide help for those in trouble and ended up saving lives. Joyce Minion and her husband Harold had to little-to-no experience in 1960 when they began their plans to build an airport. The pair had volunteered as aircraft observers from the ground and Joyce had once worked at a factory building planes. But what in the world would possess them to build an airport in their backyard? Some might view it as insanity, others may see it heroism. Joyce simply saw it as something that needed to be done. “We had aircraft landing in our hay field, landing on the highway, and landing in a neighbors hay field. It was time,” said Joyce. “Salmon Arm told us we had holes in our heads, that the city could never support an airfield. They said it was an old folks home.” It took over two years and many hours of hard labour, explained Joyce, but, in the end, their backyard was transformed into an operating airfield. “We had no help physically or financially, except from myself, my husband and our kids.” Harold had worked two jobs and Joyce would go to the beach each day with her oldest son and sell her produce along with eggs, home-baked pies, and fried chicken. “We were trying to get the mortgage lifted off our house,” explained Joyce. Once the airport opened, however, she could no longer make it to the beach to sell her items as she had to be available to pump gas, provide oil and welcome the pilots. Joyce and her husband called the Department of Transportation to ask what had to be done to get their airstrip running. “[The DOT] didn’t call and they didn’t send a letter,” she explains, “they did however, send out three men.” Instead of just telling them what had to be done, they did it for them. One man tested the soil, another tested the prevailing winds and the third tested for any obstructions. “Then they wished us the best,” said Joyce. The couple had 2,000 feet available for their airfield and they decided to use it as a grass landing strip. Their neighbor

Salmon Arm residents were warned power would be off four or five nights as the local electric plant was shut down for its annual overhaul. On the motion of aldermen Ball and Gorse, council decided to take the telephone out of the powerhouse and install it in city hall.


Premier S.F. Tolmie flipped the switch to start up the new West Canadian Hydro Electric Power Corporation power plant at Shuswap Falls. More then 1000 spectators, many from Salmon Arm, were on hand for the ceremonies. P. Stokes scored a hole in one at the local links.


Mr. Pardy reported mosquito control efforts were being focused in the Pierre’s Point and Sandy Point areas, and results were excellent. The hospital board was considering a proposal for a two-storey 36 to 40-foot addition to include a maternity ward. Salmon Arm baseballers won a 4-2 decision over Revelstoke but the cricket team lost to Vernon, as did the lacrosse squad.


By a vote of 1,013 to 429, voters in the Salmon Arm area approved a $742,000 school construction program. The bulk of the money was to go for a new $339,000 junior high school. Some $115,540 was to be used to convert the old high school to an elementary.

George Sperle presented a petition signed by more then 70 local merchants opposing a village proposal to install parking meters in the downtown area. As a result council, which had been leaning toward meters, reversed its position. C.J. Longdo headed a delegation of service station operators which appeared before village council asking that closing hours be set at 9:30 p.m., with two stations to remain open until midnight on a rotating basis. At the same meeting, a petition was received from the remaining operators asking council to set a 6 p.m. closing.

Stalled development upsets neighbours By Lachlan Labere OBSERVER STAFF

Neighbours of an Okanagan Avenue condo development left in limbo are exasperated with the city’s inability to rectify issues that have been a source of frustration for more than four years. At a recent meeting, council received a letter from George and Shelley Heggenstaller (also forwarded to the BC Ombudsperson’s office), regarding the property at 3161 Okanagan Ave. NE. The letter reiterates concerns expressed in letters to the former council, regarding the property and the state it’s been in since 2007, when its developer began the process of rezoning from R1-single family residential to R4-medium density residential, to construct a condo development. At third reading, the council of the day required a covenant to be put in place prior to final reading, restricting removal of trees that had been on the property. The trees were then removed prior to fourth reading, before the covenant could come into effect. The development failed to proceed, remaining at third reading and, subsequently, the Heggenstallers have had ongo-

ing dust issues and other concerns. Regarding concerns related to a sewer installed by the developer, city engineering and public works director Rob Niewenhuizen said the developer had removed the existing manhole and put in a new one without the city’s permission. The city is holding onto a $3,000 bond from the developer to assure the work is properly completed. “We’re still holding the bond to repair that, but we’re also waiting to see if he’s going to come back and finish the work,” said Niewenhuizen. “It’s not against code, it’s just that it was done without the approval of the city.” Otherwise, a letter of response to the Heggenstaller by city administrator Carl Bannister explains that the developer is currently not in contravention of any bylaws. This, however, did not sit well with council. Couns. Marg Kentel and Ken Jamieson were particularly frustrated with the city’s inability to have the developer take actions that would help alleviate his neighbour’s concerns. “It is staff’s job to do the bylaws and at the moment the bylaws are not being contravened, apparently. But I do think it is our job, here at the table, to ask for more to be

put into them to prevent this and to help with this situation,” said Kentel, who also had concerns of her own relating to a steep slope. “I don’t want to just sit here and say we can’t do anything because I think it would be pretty easy for a child to take a bike and accidentally roll down that bank. I’m not willing to say we can’t do anything.” Mayor Nancy Cooper said she spoke to the developer and was told that more grass would be planted to help alleviate the dust, but nothing had been done yet. She suggested a letter be written to the developer, and that staff look to other communities to “see if they have an unsightly bylaw or some other kind of a bylaw that would be able to address this kind of an issue.” In the developer’s defence, Coun. Chad Eliason said the development was a victim of the economy. “You wish you could do something, but if there’s no money to do that and no market for that project to go forward, then there isn’t very much that we can do,” said Eliason. Coun. Alan Harrison, however, recommended something more specific be drafted. “We want planting on the east side and the gravel cleaned up,


Lots in limbo: Neighbours of a stalled development on

Okanagan Avenue are frustrated with the condition the lots have remained in since 2007. and the bylaw enforcement officer could help us as far as specifics to changes that we want to see,” said Harrison. “And we give a timeline of, say, July 15. The letter from staff does say there is at least one condition where issuance of fines may be appropriate, so I think we could mention that. I think we’ve tried to appeal to their being a reasonable neighbour and that hasn’t worked very well so far.” Council agreed to write the letter, though this didn’t appear to appease George Heggenstaller, who

spoke to council afterwards. “I’m not sure about the laws and the bylaws in this town but something needs to be done to change the way you do things… and to protect owners like us from having to go through this stuff again,” said Heggenstaller. “I know we’re going to get nothing out of it, but hopefully somebody down the road won’t have to go through this. Six years, it’s not over, and nobody here says they can do anything. It’s unbelievable, it really is.”

The pan that was left simmering on the stove, unnoticed, is now glowing red and smoking. Suddenly it bursts into flames. The flames lick up the wall behind the stove and, in an instant, smoke and flames fill the kitchen. A smoke alarm loudly blasts its warning but, upstairs in the bedroom, an occupant sleeps soundly. His hearing is impaired and he has no idea his life is in danger. It’s the thought of this sort of scenario that drove Salmon Arm resident Chuck MacDonald to begin researching smoke alarms – and what’s available for people like him who can’t hear higher frequencies. MacDonald can’t hear a regular alarm, just like many others who have lost their high range of hearing through being exposed to machinery, music and other hearing hazards over the years. “I’m one of the old guys who went through

Costs mean people often forego devices


chiefs association, Len Garise, fire chief for the City of Surrey, told Shirley that the association is going to lobby industry to come up with better alarms. Shirley points out that in Salmon Arm, in some apartments, seniors centres and townhouses, on each floor a fire warden is assigned whose duties are to knock on doors to ensure everyone is aware of an alarm and is evacuated. He adds that not having audible smoke alarms is a concern that fire chiefs share – and he appreciates the questions being asked. At the Canadian Hearing Society in

Ontario, JoAnn Bentley, director of the communication devices program, says everyone’s hearing loss is different, but many people suffer from the inability to hear high frequencies. She said she’s not aware if any low frequency alarms are available in Canada, but the society sells both a visual and a bed-shaking device. The first is a combination smoke and carbon monoxide detector that must be hard-wired. It produces a bright strobe. Another is a smoke detector that can be hooked up to a device that shakes a person’s pillow. One problem, Bentley says, is that the devices can be triple or quadruple the cost of regular smoke alarms, so often people will simply go without them. “We’ve been lobbying to the government to find funding to help support the costs for these people,” she says. A few Internet websites list smoke alarms for people who are hard of hearing, including low-frequency alarms, but they are all U.S.-based. Prices are higher than what a regular smoke detector would cost.

Meanwhile, MacDonald has been to numerous retail outlets and agencies in this region, and has found nothing available for a person who wants to buy a low-frequency smoke alarm. He points out how quickly a fire can spread – and how crucial smoke alarms are to saving lives. He’s right, according to statistics. A recent study of 50,000 residential fires in B.C., Alberta and Ontario over a five-year period – up to October 2011 – involving 663 fatalities showed that the death rate per 1,000 fires in the absence of a functioning smoke alarm was 74 per cent greater than when a functioning smoke alarm was present. That’s about 70 deaths per year that could be prevented.

MacDonald’s aim is to see low-frequency smoke alarms readily available at retail stores in Canada. “I want to make people, businesses and older people aware of it,” he emphasizes. When asked how he manages to protect himself now from fire at home, his serious look transforms into a grin. “I have a wife.”

British Columbia. The association is currently undergoing a campaign to ensure every residence in B.C. has a working smoke alarm, or has smoke alarms that are tested regularly. Dr. Joseph Clare, an employee of the Surrey Fire Department, wrote a report in January of this year on smoke alarms and fire prevention. Questioned by Shirley about options for people who have difficulty hearing, Clare said alarms are being developed in Canada that produce a lower frequency tone. Alarms also exist that operate like bedside clocks. “They look like clock radios and have speakers on the top. These alarms are designed to ‘hear’ smoke alarms going off (and operate through a number of doors). Once they detect this sound, they tone (or shout in English, ‘fire’), and also have an attachment that runs from the clock to under the sleeping person’s pillows. The attachment vibrates. The unit also strobes,” he wrote in an email. Clare also noted there is a fire depart-

ment on the east coast of the U.S. that is doing trials on the benefits of installing the bedside clock-type alarms in the bedrooms of elderly people in retirement communities. President of the fire

Milkman makes a comeback By Tracy Hughes OBSERVER STAFF

Many of us grew up with a milkman bringing bottles, bags or jugs of fresh milk to the doorstep, but the milkman of old eventually became relegated to the memory book. But no longer. Tim Dolan, of Dolan Home Delivery, is bringing memories back to reality with home delivery of milk to customers in Salmon Arm. Already operating in Revelstoke, where he has approximately 250 loyal customers, Dolan has moved to Salmon Arm to expand his business. He has begun serving clients with home delivery of D Dutchman Dairy and Gort’s Gouda products.

“For a lot of people, it’s environmental. They like the glass bottles versus plastic, they like that it is a local product or they like organic — plus there’s the convenience of having it right on your doorstep and not having to take the glass bottles back to the store. I just pick them up,” says Dolan. Freshness is also key. “D Dutchmen produces their milk on Sundays, and I deliver in Salmon Arm Mondays, so it it literally 24-hours from cow to step.” Gort’s Gouda Cheese also recently added certified organic cow’s milk to their cheese and other products. “I’ll do delivery of all the Gort’s products,” says Dolan. Most clients set up a regular

standing order for the amount of milk, cheese or other dairy products they need, but this can be altered if needed. Dolan was particularly attracted to Salmon Arm because of the abundance of local farms and specialty producers. He does some delivery of Wildflight Farms produce and is hoping to eventually expand his business into the delivery of other products like eggs and other specialty foods. Dolan can be found through his website, or on Facebook, where he is currently offering prizes for joining the site. Orders can also be made through email at or phone 250-804-3474.

Sisters earn awards at OC It’s all in the family for two Salmon Arm sisters who graduated from Okanagan College this past weekend with top honours for their outstanding academic achievements. Erica Fairley and Andrea Pickard attended the Salmon Arm campus where they racked up award-winning marks. Fairley received the Governor General’s Collegiate Bronze Medal with a graduating grade average of 95.27 per cent – the highest achievement of any fulltime Okanagan College graduate of an associate degree or diploma program this year. Meanwhile, Pickard received Okanagan College’s President’s Award in recognition of her 92.38 per cent graduating grade average. Two such awards go to students with the highest grades excluding the Collegiate Bronze Medal. The two women received their diplomas in Business Administration and both plan to pursue careers in accounting. They were among 1,600 students recognized at Okanagan College’s Spring Convocation ceremonies held at the Kelowna campus. It’s hard to say whether achievement is in their genes, but both women credit their supportive families and a commitment to professionalism for their success.

“This is for our children, to help them understand the importance of going to school, and that if you work hard, you will be rewarded,” said Pickard. Her sister agreed. “It’s been a juggle,” said Fairley, whose sixyear-old son attended the ceremony along with Pickard’s husband and their two children, ages eight and 10. “Both of our husbands, and our families, have sacrificed a lot for us to do this. They were very, very supportive and took on a lot of extra roles.” Pickard, 36, was the first to decide she wanted to return to school to expand on her bookkeeping career. At the time, Fairley, now 35, had just been laid off from her work as an electrical designer for a company that provided automated systems to saw mills. “I thought why not,” she said. With practical work experience already under their belts, they applied their discipline of producing flawless work to their academic performance – something both admit they never considered when they were attending high school in Salmon Arm. “When you’re working you just don’t do things halfway,” Fairley said. The strategy paid off, and come September, Fairley will be employed full-time in Salmon Arm at BDO

Top marks: Erica Fairley, left, and Andrea Pickard graduated with diplomas in Business Administration. Both notched awardwinning marks at Okanagan College. Canada. She’ll spend the rest of the summer completing four more courses toward her Bachelor’s degree. After that, she plans on becoming a Chartered Accountant. Pickard is still weighing her options between becoming a CA or a Certified General Accountant. Both credited the College for its commitment to supportive learning. “The teachers, the staff, the administration, everyone makes it so easy to learn,” Pickard said. “You’d think it would feel like a business, but it’s more like a community where

everyone is so focused on helping each other learn.” Part of that supportive learning came at the instruction of Okanagan School of Business Professor Megan Mills, who taught them courses at the Salmon Arm campus in marketing, management principles, and organizational behaviour. “Erica and Andrea are exceptional people, who were able to complete our very rigorous program, all while looking after their families,” she said. “I know they will be successful in their careers. They won’t settle for less.”

The Shuswap Regional Airport began with a with a massive dirtmoving project in 1970. And in the 33 years since the airport opened, it has taken on a critical role – something that seems to stay under the radar. That’s something newly retired airport manager John McDermott and Salmon Arm Flying Club president Tim Auger are working to change. “If the weather is good, you wouldn’t believe how busy the airport is,” McDermott says, noting air ambulance service, the BC Forest Service, Rapattack, Department of National Defence and tourism form the bulk of the activity, with “transient” air traffic completing the list. While most of the air ambulances arrive from Kelowna or Kamloops, others have come from as far away as Mexico and Las Vegas. The airport averages between 150 to 200 medevac flights per year, with three arriving within two hours recently, filling the apron area to capacity. There would likely be more flights but weather dictates flight restrictions. The weather has to be good for night landings and in daylight, there has to be a minimum cloud ceiling of 3,000 feet. When the weather is inclement, something that happens a lot, says Auger, ambulances have to travel by road. Both Auger and McDermott

are happy when the airport is hopping and point out the busy season has begun. “We’re busy from the first of May to the end of October, and we’re extremely busy if we’re in the middle of fire season,” says McDermott. “They fought the Fintry fire from here,” adds Auger, noting members of the adjacent Rapattack station use the airport’s infield for training. Salmon Arm is an alternate for Revelstoke Airport in skiing season and National Defence also uses the airport for search and rescue training. The biggest aircraft the airport can accommodate is a Dash 7, which can seat up to 54 passengers plus flight crew. While surrounding topography prevents lengthening the runway, McDermott and Auger have other development possibilities on their minds. “We need to expand taxiways, the apron and tie-down areas,” says McDermott. “Big aircraft have to stay on the pavement.” Funding and environmental issues need to be addressed, but, in the meantime, the flight enthusiasts want to raise the profile of the airport. “We need more people to know what’s happening,” says McDermott, with an enthusiastic nod from Auger. To promote one of their most favourite spots in the world, the men are involved with Airport Appreciation Day, which will be hosted by the Salmon Arm Fly-

Club donates vintage wheels By Cavelle Layes OBSERVER STAFF

Crowds gathered in the pouring rain to watch the Shuswap Vintage Car Club make a historic donation. The RJ Haney Heritage Village were the proud recipients of a 1925 model T coupe, presented to them on

June 7. The car was a result of two years of hard work by the club, and a whole lot of generosity. The Shuswap Vintage Car Club searched high and low for a suitable car for RJ Haney. When they stumbled upon the Coupe the group unanimously de-

cided it was what they were looking for. The car was brought back from Merritt with them and fixed up into working order before the grand presentation. Over 50 people stood watching as the car was unveiled., far more than had originally been expected

The rain did not dampen anyone’s spirits as the crowd burst out in applause when the car’s engine was started. The latest addition to the RJ Haney Heritage Village will remain at the fill-up station for visitors to view as they please.

Ladies and gentlemen, let there be light – $5,000 worth. That is what the Salmar Grand Cinemas has won in a BC Hydro Power Smart energy-efficient lighting makeover. The non-profit movie theatre was voted by British Columbians as the winner of the Power Smart Energy Fix Contest in the Salmon Arm, Kamloops, Vernon and Revelstoke area. “Someone will come in next week and tell us where we are most inefficient in our lighting and they they’ll come in and fix it,” said an excited manager Daila Duford Monday. Duford said all the ceilings in the theatre have pocket lights fitted out with high-watt bulbs that need to be replaced. As well, she says she is hoping there will be enough in the pot to replace some of the outside lights. Duford says she found out about the contest in April, about a week before it ended and, thinking it was a long shot, still put in an application. “I was worried it would be me and my mom, but it turns out everybody in town voted,” laughs Duford, noting area residents had only 11 days in which to vote and that Salmar garnered more votes than anybody in this division. “Salmon Arm’s amazing – they pull together for everybody.” BC Hydro judged entrants based on how the business will benefit from the makeover, goals or motivations to be more energy efficient and energy-efficient or sustainable practices the business already employs. A shortlist of finalists were chosen from each region and the winners were determined by an online vote announced at the end of May. “The Salmar Grand Cinemas said they wanted an energy-efficient lighting makeover in order to continue directing all profits back into the community or theatre improvements,” says a BC Hydro press release. “The non-profit movie theatre strives to be more environmentally sustainable and already practises energy efficient behaviours with recent upgrades on all their projectors to an energy efficient system with energy efficient bulbs.”

Confused about nutrition? You’re not alone tific evidence proving that these food items cause poor health. Unfortunately, scientific studies are not clear cut and are subject to interpretation. Consequently, nutrition


Serena Caner “What are we supposed to eat?” People today are more and more confused about nutrition recommendations, despite the fact that they have not changed substantially in the last 50 years – eat more fruits, vegetables, whole grains and less of the other stuff. If the guidelines are so simple, why are we so confused? The first problem is that when it comes to nutrition education, government agencies do not have the funding to compete with food marketing dollars in promoting dietary recommendations. Food companies spend billions of dollars annually advertising and promoting their products to the public — on television, in magazines, on billboards, in movies. People take this “health information” not realizing that it is heavily influenced by these companies wanting to sell their product. Due to lack of funding, even nutrition education in schools is funded by the private sector. In our province, the BC Dairy Foundation funds nutrition education programs. This not-for-profit organization has the dual mandate of “increasing consumption of milk in B.C. and delivering innovative nutrition education programs.” We can be glad that Coca-Cola is not running these programs, but can also question if it presents a bias in its information. The second problem is that even within our government, there is a conflict of interest between health and business. If the government wanted to make a simple recommendation like, “eat less meat,” they would have the beef industry and the pork industry oppos-

ing them. They would need concrete scien-

guidelines are usually political compromises between what science suggests and what is good for the food industry. So what or who should we believe?

What you need to realize is that most nutrition information you receive has some bias. Food companies want you to eat more of their foods, more often, and therefore will use any

nutritional claim they can to encourage you to buy their products. However, most of the time you are be better off eating less (portion control), eating mostly unprocessed foods and

limiting junk foods. - Serena Caner is a registered dietician who works at Shuswap Lake General Hospital.

One year ago, Matt Loringâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life changed forever. The 39-year-old misjudged his entry into a swimming pool, snapping his neck in the process. While the one-year anniversary brought back memories and details of the accident and his time in ICU, Loring continues to concentrate on the nuts and bolts of day-to-day living. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I try to keep focused on the fact that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m turf-side,â&#x20AC;? says the engaging young man who is paralyzed from the upper chest down. Loringâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s focus is one of the reasons he made a recent trip to Vancouver to collect one of eight Gert Vorsteher Memorial Awards presented by the BC Rehab Foundation. The awards are designed to recognize individuals who have been faced with life-

changing injuries and have demonstrated courage and perseverance in regaining their personal independence. Each recipient of the award receives a $5,000 bursary. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All of us at BC Rehab are very proud to honour our Gert Vorsteher Memorial Award winners,â&#x20AC;? said Paul Richard, BC Rehab Board chair. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These award are especially meaningful to those who receive them because they recognize, reward and celebrate the personal dedication and effort required to overcome physical challenges, remove barriers and attain personal independence.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;It didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really hit me until we were there; it struck us that people who were there for five years were getting awards too,â&#x20AC;? he says, noting the fact he was included with those people was an indication of the significance of his recovery.


Recognition: GF Strong physiotherapist,


Grant Huston catches up with Salmon Armâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Matt Loring at the Gert Vorsteher Memorial Awards in Vancouver. Loring, who worked intensively with Huston while he was undergoing rehab, was presented with a $5,000 award. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was proud already, but it was humbling to have a lot of people I looked up to sing my praises and say how much I had influenced them.â&#x20AC;? While he has had no other stellar improvements like the sudden finger movement he got last Thanksgiving, Loring says he is getting stronger and learning to do more and




more things. And, as he has been told recovery can improve over two years, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not giving up hope that other major muscle groups will begin to work. Fundraising is on the minds of some of Loringâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s friends, who are determined to hold a fundraiser soon in order to raise $30,000 to purchase a special van.

A kiss of the sun… This eye-catching front yard is very unique with the tall red clock in the centre of the flower bed. Combined with a pond, solar-powered lily pads and surrounded by peonies, phlox, azaleas, this space is guarded by a huge ceramic turtle. In every corner of this fascinating garden there is somethign to see. Fountains, various hostas, alongside ferns fill the shaded spots. A weeping willow and a magnolia tree along with rhododendrums, lilies and hydrangeas give the yard wonderful dimension and interest. So much to see and very little room to extoll the beauty of this space. A row of roses along the front, that when in bloom will be a stunning statement in this garden that has truly been ‘kissed by the sun.’

Olympic dreams take shape in London By Martha Wickett OBSERVER STAFF

Rebecca Howard was 13 when she started drawing Olympic rings above her bed. Now 33, those drawings have come to life. Her website says it all. “Countdown London Olympics, Eventing – 45 days, 5 hours, 36 minutes.” On Sunday, Howard and her horse Riddlemaster were named to the Canadian Eventing Team. They will participate in this summer’s 2012 Olympic Games in London, England. “I’ve been drawing the Olympic rings for a long time,” says the woman who grew up in Salmon Arm and has been the equestrian director at The Fork Stables in Norwood, North Carolina since 2006. “Even still, they’re on my bathroom mirror at home; I write up all my goals with highlighter.” Still, attaining her goal is a little beyond belief. “I’m very excited. The goal is to be at the top of my sport and to be competitive and sustainable at the top of my sport. The Olympic Games, definitely, in terms of a sporting event, it’s unbelievable. I’m very excited to represent there. Hopefully it’s one of many Olympic Games.” The selection process has been arduous. “The selection trials were hard mentally – the final selection trials, competing to get on the team. It’s different than competing once you’re at the Games. The pressure


World class style: Salmon Arm’s Rebecca Howard and Riddlemaster placed second at an international three-day event at The Fork in North Carolina, part of the Team Canada selection process for the Olympics. situation of the Games will be more familiar territory. But competing to be selected and to make sure you check the right boxes, that you and your horse stay safe and sound, so the rug doesn’t get pulled out and you don’t get to go...” The most recent competition was the Bromont Three Day Event in Quebec, where she placed fifth overall and was the top Canadian. Eventing is made up of dressage, cross-country jumping and stadium jumping. “It was not an ideal weekend, not picture perfect. The first day,

Rupert (Riddlemaster’s nickname) was really excited, for lack of a better word. He put in some really good work but also misbehaved,” she explained, adding that his cross-country round was great, as was his show jumping. “At the end of the day, it was a good thing to have those mistakes happen now – It gives you perspective of things to work on from now until then.” She notes as the horses get fitter and fitter, they also get more energetic. Time at the Olympic venue will be crucial for getting

Riddlemaster comfortable. After spending this week in Salmon Arm, Howard will be in Virginia until July 9, when she and Riddlemaster go to England to a farm just west of London. They’ll do preparation trials and then head to the Olympic venue on July 23, with competition set to begin July 27. “The actual venue at Greenwich, it’s going to be very electric,” Howard says. “A horse is an athlete, so you try to make their world smaller; focus on what my job is, and what their job is. That’s

why it’s so important to have all the people around me. Dana Cooke (from Merritt) is my groom, I couldn’t do it without her. There are so many people who take care of the noise in the background and the details so athletes can really focus on the job.” Being in England, the hub of the sport, will be a thrill in itself. “The venue there is going to be just buzzing. Greenwich Park is right downtown London, so Greenwich has a ton of history... We do dressage right in front of the queen’s house. The mecca of the sport is in England. It’s going to be quite the buzz.” Following the Olympic Games, Howard will be staying on in England for a minimum of two years, so she can benefit from riding and training in that mecca. However, she’ll always be from Salmon Arm. “Truly, I’m from Salmon Arm, B.C. It’s good and it’s part of coming home – I will touch base with people, I’m giving some lessons, giving some chats, I hope to visit some of my first instructors. It’s really nice to be home for this week...” And, she emphasizes: “No Olympian ever does this alone, it takes such a team of people and I’m there representing such a team of people. It comes all the way back down to the people here. My parents and family are at the top of that list... The amount of support I’ve gotten from all over the continent is overwhelming. It’s pretty special really.”

Fields close, few games played League play ended Sunday with the U16 Boys Shuswap Selects realizing a long-sought goal – claiming first place in their division. The Selects travelled to Kamloops Sunday, where the fields were dry, to play the Blaze and came home with a 2-0 victory. The Salmon Arm boys worked hard, with good possession, hard tackling and a great defensive effort by all. When all the league games were completed, the final tally came down to numbers of goals for and against between Kelowna United and the Selects – and Salmon Arm was victorious. Kelowna and Salmon Arm have met three times this season, with the Selects winning two out of three games, one of them exhibition. Salmon Arm will compete in the final this coming Sunday in Penticton, with the Selects taking on the winner of Saturday’s game between Kelowna and

Squeaker The U14 Girls Shuswap Selects were looking for redemption versus Vernon on Sunday. Shuswap started quickly, speeding

through and around Vernon. Back and forth, pass after pass, but still no score for either team. In the second half, both teams tried desperately for a goal. Vernon took possession for much of the half. They made play after play, attempting to make the scoreboard, doing

pretty much anything in effort to score, including taking out the goalie several times. One shot bounced off the post and, as the goalie turned and jumped on it, she stopped it just in time before the ball would have rolled over the line, or so she thought. The ref called it no goal, but the linesman

Little Mountain to open June 18 Mother Nature is being a little too helpful. When the fields at Little Mountain were seeded a couple of weeks ago, they were also irrigated, explains Brad Ackerman, the city’s supervisor of parks and recreation. Then, more than 41 millimeters of rain fell in the first eight days of June.


“We will open up Little Mountain for Monday, June 18,” Ackerman says. “We’re just in the process of drying the fields down again.” He said the seed that was put down has taken well. “It will continue to grow and get established, especially if Mother Nature gives us a little bit of sun to help

that process.” Although all the city soccer fields were closed this past weekend, they have all since been re-opened. “We took the extraordinary step to close the fields down over the weekend. That did help the fields and we didn’t lose any ground,” he said, noting that other communities in the re-

gion such as Vernon and West Kelowna did the same thing. He said overuse of the fields that caused the damage at Little Mountain will be avoided. “As we move forward with getting the fields back open, we’ll manage the wear and monitor the hours so we don’t take any steps backwards.”

Catch of the day: Hundreds of young anglers and their families enjoy the Kids Fishing Derby held on Father’s Day.

It has been 16 years since the first Salmon Arm Kids Fishing Derby took place down at the end of the wharf at Marine Park. Since then the derby has grown in size and popularity. Each year the derby attracts anywhere from 600 to 800 people including participants, parents and people who just come out to watch and cheer on the kids. This year there are close to $5,000 in prizes to be won. Over the years the organizers have handed out some $75,000 in scholarships and prizes. “But it’s not just about the prizes,” says Salmon Arm Recreation program coordinator Donna Flatman, one of the organizers. “It’s more about kids and families having fun together. A lot of kids have come out to the derby over the past 16 years. Some of them, who are too old now to enter still participate by coming out and volunteering. We have over 30 volunteers a well as six certified lifeguards who are on duty throughout the derby.” The 2012 Salmon Arm Kid’s Fishing Derby is open to all children 12 years and under. There is no cost to enter the derby, which goes Father’s Day, June 17. Registration takes place Sunday morning, beginning at 6 a.m., at the end of the wharf and the only restrictions are that each child must be accompanied by an

adult, and each child must wear a lifejacket or PDF. Some life jackets are available for children who do not have one. Only coarse fish are eligible for trophies and prizes, and, fish must be caught and played by the child – an adult, however, can assist in netting a fish. An awards ceremony will take place immediately following the derby at the end of the wharf where the trophies and major prizes will be handed out. The winner of the annual Kids Fishing Derby will receive the Salmon Arm Savings and Credit Union - W. J. (Bill) Murray Memorial Trophy, an IM-6 graphite rod and reel outfit, a $200 RESP Educa-

tion Bond – and – they will get to take their whole family on an allexpenses-paid weekend fishing trip to Beaver Lake Lodge, which will include accommodations, boat and motor, and $100 worth of groceries. Second- and thirdplace winners will receive rod and reel outfits and RESP education bonds. The lucky angler who lands the first fish of the derby will receive the Piccadilly Place Mall Trophy, a rod and reel outfit, and a $100 Rotary Club sponsored RESP education bond. Two anglers who catch fish closest to predetermined “secret weights” will have their names inscribed on the Canadian Tire Trophy

and will win a brand new, mountain bike. The angler who manages to catch the most fish will receive the City of Salmon Arm Trophy, a rod and reel outfit, a $100 Rotary Club sponsored RESP Education Bond, as well as a oneyear pass to the swimming pool. There are also lots of other great prizes given out throughout the derby. As in previous years, there will also be the special Parent Appreciation draw prize. Adults receive one draw ticket for each child they register. At the awards ceremony, one lucky person will win a fully deckedout barbecue with all the accessories, as well as $100 worth of groceries.

Salmon Arm Minor Hockey Association referees Eric Porter and Austin Pugh receive the honour of scholarships from SAMHA vice-president Candy Wrench for the BC Hockey Summer Officiating School in Osoyoos.

NHLers to mingle at golf tourney Shuswap NHL stars Shea Weber and Cody Franson have announced that the first annual Sicamous Shootout Charity Golf Tournament to raise money for the BC Cancer Foundation will be held on July 13 at the Hyde Mountain Resort Course in Sicamous. Weber and Franson say they will be joined by many of their NHL colleagues to raise money to fight cancer. Weber says he has been touched by the support of his fellow players. “Cody and I have discussed doing this for some time and we are excited to get a group of good guys together for such a great cause. I know the com-

munity will rally around this event to make it a success and I am really looking forward to showcasing my hometown.” Franson says both he and Weber have put a lot into making this year’s tournament a success and that it has been a very rewarding experience. “We had two criteria when we started out. We wanted to make it a fun experience where people could interact with NHL players but we didn’t want to lose sight of the need to raise money for the cancer foundation. That is why Shea and I have worked so hard to find great auction items and have really encouraged the Okanagan business community to get behind this.”

While Shea and Cody would love to see as many golfers participate as possible, they will continue to fundraise up until the event. Weber says he is committed to working flat out over the next six weeks to make this happen. “Golf spots are going fast but we still have a need for sponsorships and donations. I encourage everyone who can to make a donation because cancer seems to touch almost every Canadian in some way.” To find out more regarding the single entrant registration draw, sponsorship opportunities or to make a donation, go to or contact Mark Black at 604-345-8290.

They were here at the onset and the multi award-winning Shuffle Demons are coming back. Known worldwide for their hot jazz-funk-fusion the band is returning to celebrate the 20th anniversary of one of Salmon Arm’s hottest events – the 20th annual Roots & Blues Festival. “Way back in 1992 anyone going by Gleneden Hall, Sunday afternoon of the first festival, would have beheld a strange parade; led by three saxophones, writhing and gyrating Shuffle Demon Fans danced into the parking lot and circled around a strangely clad young man doing a spastic drum solo – without drums,” says Scott Crocker, Roots & Blues publicity and marketing manager. “Back inside the hall, dancers of all ages lay on the floor with their legs in the air, doing the infamous Roach Dance.” Crocker says the energy was so “hepped up” people were worried the hall floor would collapse. Well, the Demons are coming back again, invading Salmon Arm with their insanity, vitality and sax playing extraordinaire. The legend of the Shuffle Demons is well known to Canadians. For more than 25 years, the Canadian jazz-funk-fusion band has been entertaining fans around the world. The band’s high energy, out-of-the-ordinary live show bills them as folk, jazz and world music festival mainstays, and has taken them on 15 cross-Canada and European tours, as well as through Asia, India and Australia. Now, the Shuffle Demons return with their first album of new material in close to 20 years, Clusterfunk, an explosion of fusion that will keep crowds shaking to the funky jazz rhythms they’ve become accustomed to

Getting down: One of the first Roots and Blues acts ever, The Shuffle Demons will return for the 20th anover the band’s extraordinary career. With eight albums to their credit, and winners of five CASBY Awards for their phenomenal Juno-nominated debut album Streetniks – the record that spawned the hit Spadina Bus – the Shuffle Demons are household names on the North American festival circuit. Due for release July 3, Clusterfunk features 12 new original songs (seven vocal and five instrumental). Bassist George Koller and drummer Stich Wynston lay down a solid groove for saxophonists Richard Underhill, Perry White and Kelly Jefferson. The result alternates between serious jazz and groovy funk played by seasoned professionals at the top of their game. They make their return this summer, touring across Canada with more than 20 major jazz and folk festival appearances, including several shows at the 20th annual Salmon Arm Roots & Blues Festival, which runs Aug. 17 to 19, and its pre-festival outreach project, Routes & Blues. The Shuffle Demons will make a Routes & Blues ap-

niversary. pearance in Seymour Arm, something that excites Underhill, who has not visited that part of the world since he camped there at the age of 20. The talented sax man, who is in town visiting family and friends for a few days, is also looking forward to coming home for the festival’s 20-year celebration. He applauded the “hard work of Linda Tanaka” to grow the festival and current artistic director Hugo Rampen’s continuing great work. “There’s been a lot of hard work by everyone over the years,” he says. “There are nice new initiatives and I love the outreach programs.” Advance ticket prices for this year’s Routes & Blues Festival are in effect until Aug. 10.

Artists create for conservation By Barb Brouwer OBSERVER STAFF

Fifty western Canadian artists are putting their talent where their hearts are in an effort to protect B.C.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wild and fragile raincoast. Celebrated artists like Robert Bateman and the Shuswapâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own Gaye Adams, will spend five days capturing the landscapes they believe are threatened by the Northern Gateway pipeline proposed by Enbridge and their international partners. The talented group includes many First Nations artists. A network of coastal lodges, tour boat operators and water taxis have come onboard, donating travel and accommodation so the artists can explore some of the provinceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most remote and spectacular scenery. Over a period of two weeks, artists will â&#x20AC;&#x153;depict the rich biodiversity and integrated ecological elements of the forest, intertidal and ocean zones and the people, flora and fauna that have lived there for thousands of yearsâ&#x20AC;? in paintings and carvings, says a Raincoast Conservation Foundation press release. The event is the brainchild of Tofino artist and biologist Mark Hobson, who helped co-ordinate

Paddling with purpose: Artist Gaye Adams painted this arbutus tree overlooking Fiddlerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cover on Saturna Island during a kayaking-painting trip. a similar venture in 1989 that resulted in Carmanah: Artistic Visions of an Ancient Rainforest. The book drew international attention to the Carmanah Valley and led to permanent protection of the area. Art created during the upcoming event will be included in a book â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Raincoast at Risk: Art for an OilFree Coast, scheduled to be published this fall. The original artworks donated by participating artists will become part of a travelling art show to raise public awareness of what is at stake on B.C.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spectacular coast and why it must be protected. Adams says she met Hobson about five years ago at the Bamfield Ma-

rine Science Centre and recently joined him on a weeklong kayakingpainting excursion in the Gulf Islands.

Gaye Adams SHUSWAP ARTIST â&#x20AC;&#x153;I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a great understanding of what was going on, but Mark explained to me how treacherous the waters are that the supertankers would go through, tank-

ers that would cause a disaster much greater than the Exxon Valdez,â&#x20AC;? says Adams. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I caught the bug.â&#x20AC;? On June 18, Adams will fly to Bella Bella, then travelling by boat to the Hakai Institute, a teaching, research and conference facility on Calvert Island. The talented artist is very excited about the upcoming trip organized through the Raincoast Conservation Foundation. She sees her art as a tool to bring attention to the need to protesct the area, whose rich biotic zones include Douglas Sound and the Great Bear Rainforest. Art as a tool was described by noted Canadian educator, philosopher, and scholar Marshall McLuahn - â&#x20AC;&#x153;Art at its most significant is a distant early warning system that can always be relied on to tell the old culture what is beginning to happen to it.â&#x20AC;? Also on Adamsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; list of exciting projects for summer 2012, is an exhibition she will hold in the ballroom of the Prestige Resort during the Roots and Blues Festival, which runs Aug. 17 to 19.

Appeal for the planet Humanity now faces the greatest challenge in its history – to save our planet. Author and lifelong environmentalist Bob Harrington makes an eloquent appeal for a theology of the earth, combining philosophical and spiritual perception with practical economic facts to educate, inspire and challenge listeners to change their lives in order to change the world. Harrington has spent many years privately funding and managing small environmental restoration projects as well as writing and publishing several books on environmen-

tal matters. He examines the place of humankind in the kinship of all life, and in a masterful fashion has identified specific problems that we have created, the consequences of our actions and the necessary courses of action we must take to save our planet and ourselves. With deep insight and compassion Harrington shows us another way. It is a way that has received the seal of approval from another well-known and highly respected environmentalist - David Suzuki. “Bob Harrington has spent a lifetime pon-

dering these matters, humanity’s awesome duality, the capacity for love and compassion and our terrible destructiveness,” writes Suzuki in the forward to Harrington’s book, The Soul Solution – The Need for a Theology of the Earth. “By living thoughtfully, lightly and with respect, Bob and Linda Harrington show us the richness of lives lived filled with love and spirit. The Soul Solution is their critique of our dilemma and their uplifting vision of what can be. The wisdom suffused throughout the book was never more urgently needed, and of-

fers us a different path to take.” Harrington will make a presentation at 7 p.m. Tuesday, June 26 at First United Church in an event sponsored by World Service Organization. Harrington will discuss the idea that the Earth may be imbued with soul, awareness, intelligence and benevolence, and examine our place in the midst of this miracle. Everyone is welcome to attend what organizer Dorothy Argent describes as an insightful and inspiring presentation. Admission is by a suggested $10 donation.

Another great night of jazz Enjoy another delightful night of music at the SAGA Jazz Club at 7 p.m. Thursday, June 14. Tomorrow night’s concert features Salmon Arm’s own Sandy Cameron and his quintet featuring Don Clark. The talented quintet features Sandy Cameron on sax, Don Clark playing trumpet

and flugelhorn, pianist Don Ross, Bill Lockie on stand-up bass and Brian Pratt Johnson on drums. Clark has enjoyed a long career as one of Canada’s leading trumpet and flugelhorn players. His album, To Swing or not to Swing, gives a hint of the music he prefers, and he refers to himself as a main-

stream player. Along with Cameron and the rest of the musicians, Clark relishes the thrill of improvising. His credentials are huge as a player, arranger and composer on the West Coast since the early ‘60’s. He was leader of the Donnie Clark Quartet and Quintet, the West Coast Jazz Orchestra and more. Clark has per-

formed with such greats as Ella Fitzgerald, Nat King Cole, New Orleans Connection and the Chicago Six. Don Ross, who has been playing since the 1950s, jumps at every opportunity to play. So sit back, relax and enjoy an evening of jazz and swing at the SAGA Public Art Gallery. Admission is by a suggested $10 donation.

Scarecrow to open for Nazareth By Barb Brouwer OBSERVER STAFF

Disbelief! That’s what Scarecrow’s John Hodgson felt when he first got wind of an invitation to open for Nazareth, the wildly popular Scottish rock band that will perform in concert at Salmon Arm’s Shaw Centre on July 7. When Shaw Centre events co-ordinator David Knight phoned to confirm, Hodgson was ecstatic. “I just about fell off the chair – I thought it was a joke,” laughs Scarecrow’s lead singer/ guitarist. “As teenagers, we grew up listening to them, so it’s kinda going full circle.” Disbelief was accompanied by a good measure of colourful language when Hodgson shared the news with bandmates Dennean Gould, Rylan Wood and Kyle Reige. “We just weren’t expecting it, we’re flattered beyond belief.

They’re rock heroes.” While Reige just joined the group last year, the other members have played together for four years. But Hodgson has been a player since 1990 in Calgary, where the band was formed. Back in Alberta now, Hodgson says moving to the Crazy Creek area west of Malakwa was terrible in terms of mosquitoes, but the best turn of events for picking up band members. Three-quarters of the band are now living in Alberta, with only one remaining in B.C. But Scarecrow, with its ability to play a wide variety of music well, is often back in the area – and that will continue. “It’s country, it’s rock, it’s what gets you off your chair – whatever works,” says Hodgson of Scarecrow’s musical repertoire. That’s something Winston Pain is happy to corroborate.

It’s new, d n a y s a e ’s it it’s free! ing in your

is happen t a h w f o p to pcoming Stay on u n w o r u o y d ad community or r online calendar event to ou A R G E! H C F O E E FR

As chair of the Shuswap Trail Alliance and of the team that organizes the annual trail party fundraiser, Pain knows how well crowds respond to Scarecrow. “The reason we keep bringing them back is their range is wide and they can play their own and cover stuff,” says Pain, describing Hodgson as exceptionally talented. “If you close your eyes, you really think you’re listening to ACDC, or Elton John...” As well, Pain says Scarecrow has a way of completely engaging a broad age group, and keeping them on the dance floor until the early morning hours. “With Scarecrow as our name band we sell out all 450 tickets,” says Pain. “We’ve had them back by popular demand and we know they’ll be coming back again.” That will happen sooner rather than later,

with Scarecrow happy to return for Canada Day festivities on a barge in Sicamous, another gig at a private celebration and then, of course, the highly anticipated Nazareth concert. “We’re like a travelling pack of gypsies,” laughs Hodgson, noting the band was heading into a recording studio Monday to cut a CD. “The album will be like our live music – rock, country and in between,” he says. “I take in an idea, everyone throws their two bits into the sandbox and we see where it goes from there.” Popular since their start in the 1960’s, Nazareth is on another world tour, still playing to sold-out audiences. Doors at the Shaw Centre open at 7 p.m. Saturday, July 7 and the concert begins at 8. Tickets are $34 for general seating, or $39 for a place at a table on the floor.

In the Year of the Water Dragon what better way to reward the work of 24 Youth Volunteers at Bastion Place and Shuswap Lake General Hospital than to offer them the chance to experience an exhilarating hour on the lake learning to paddle a Dragon Boat. It was a real community event with local competitive Dragon boat paddlers, coaches and steersmen from teams Dragon Tao, Pink Piston Paddlers and Friends Abreast all coming together to give the Youth Volunteers a short but very real race experience. This event was followed by an awards ceremony at Marine Park where Jillian Jackson and Morgan Hoult were each presented with a $1000.00 Scholarship from the Shuswap Lake Health Care Auxiliary to help them to pursue a career in Health Care. As part of the Year of the Dragon, Shuswap Association for Rowing and Paddling (SARP) is offering the opportunity to youths over 14 to join a dragon boat paddling course at 6 pm on Thursday evenings during July and August for the special rate of $40. If under 19 years of age, parental consent is required. All equipment is provided and safety procedures as well as recreational and racing practices are taught, however, space is limited so early application is recommended. Parents may participate free for up to three evenings. For further information contact Tom or Gloria Makey @250-832-8058 or email” Thank you to the Shuswap Dragon Boating society for helping to make this years awards ceremony such a huge success.

Cindy was known and loved by so many in this community. Arrangements entrusted to FISCHER’S FUNERAL SERVICES & CREMATORIUM LTD., Salmon Arm, (250) 833-1129. EMAIL condolences and share memories at www. ILA HAZEL ELLINGSON Ila Hazel Ellingson (Park) passed peacefully in Salmon Arm, B.C. on Friday May 25th, 2012. Ila is survived by her four loving children: Gail LeDuc of Sorrento , B.C., Jim (Ruth) Ellingson of Cranbrook, B.C., Bob (Barb) Ellingson of Victoria, B.C. and Faye Ellingson of the Turks and Caicos Islands. Her 11 Grandchildren, 21 Great Grandchildren and 4 Great, Great Grandchildren will miss her mischievous sparkle in their lives. Ila was born in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan on May 14, 1916 to Alexander and Susan Park. Their family was a large one, common for those pioneering days, with two sisters and seven brothers. Her family homesteaded in the McKague area where Ila also attended school, being the first person to complete grade eight in the whole district. On October 11, 1935 Ila married Chester (Chet) Ellingson in Tisdale Saskatchewan. The newlyweds worked throughout BC on various jobs but the ranching lifestyle called them back to the interior of B.C. where they worked both the Gang and Douglas Lake Ranches. Both Chet and Ila had an entrepreneurial spirit and eventually opted to go into business for themselves running country stores starting in Alexandria in the Caribou, Hudson Hope in the Peace River, Takysie Lake in Mid B.C., and finally, Fauquier in the Kootenays. Ila was particularly fond of running the post offices that were attached to their stores and was also famous for her homemade pies that she made for the lunch counters. With all this multitasking it is no wonder that Ila instilled such a strong work ethic in her family. Upon retirement Ila still worked hard in her large gardens and, always athletic, also took up golfing and cross-country skiing. However, cards were always her favorite pastime and if you ask any generation in the family it is certain that she taught and probably beat them all with that lucky streak she had. Ila’s other loves were her country music and dancing. Her family and friends will always remember her for her mischievous sense of humor and the twinkle in those amazingly blue eyes of hers. The family would like to thank the management and staff of both Piccadilly Terrace and the Hillside Samaritan Home for all their kind caring of our mother/grandmother while she was in their care. A memorial service celebrating the life of Ila Ellingson will be held at the St. Mary’s Chapel in Sorrento, B.C. on June 30th , 2012 at 11 a.m. Online condolences can be sent through Ila’s obituary at



R.C. (BOB) WOODS October 28, 1919 to June 8, 2012


Celebrations Happy 30th Birthday Kevin

Woods, Robert Charles (Bob) born in Vernon, BC, October 28 1919, passed away peacefully with family at his side on June 8, 2012. Bob’s wife of 49 years, Eleanor passed away in the fall of 2010. Bob is survived by daughters Kerry and Bess; sons, Alex (Jane), Percy (Sharon): 9 grandchildren and 8 great grandchildren. Bob was the last surviving sibling of the Woods family from Canoe Point, BC. Bob, brother Allan and sister Mary–Lou (Tapson-Jones) grew up in a very different era. Their upbringing was intimately tied to nature and the beauty of the Shuswap and to hard work on the family farm. That upbringing and its influence was evident in every aspect of Bob’s life. Whatever Bob did it had to be useful. But while he was busy working he would always take time to observe and admire nature and the beauty around him. Both Bob and brother, Allan were called up for the service in World War II, but neither were sent overseas. After the war Bob and Alan returned to work on the family farm and in their spare time they set out to build a boat. There was no road to Canoe Point then, a good boat was a necessity. They looked at buying the necessary lumber, saw how expensive it was, looked at the timber they had on their land and came to the logical conclusion to first build a sawmill. They built that mill sawed that lumber and built a beautiful 26 foot Cabin Cruise, the Mary-Lou. Bob would always say “after we built that boat everyone could see we were useful and we never had to look for employment.” After a successful letter writing campaign (pen pals) Bob married Eleanor Leitch in April 1961. Over the next five years Bob and Eleanor’s family grew with daughter Bess and sons Alex and Percy who joined Eleanor’s daughter Kerry. Bob supported his family working for Federated Co-op in their woodlands department for over 25 years. Bob’s primary job was as a log scaler but he was a handy guy and would be asked to help with everything from beach combing to bridge building. In his spare time Bob was a keen member of the Shuswap Naturalists Club and he got his children out on many a Naturalist trip and Christmas bird count. Bob and Eleanor shared a little house just outside of Canoe for over 46 years. After Eleanor passed away Bob moved to Hillside Village in Salmon Arm. Bob always tried to be as accommodating as possible. He kept up that spirit and his sense of humor in his time at Hillside Village. He truly appreciated all of the great staff at Hillside Village and how well they cared for him. His children are very grateful to the staff of Hillside. Bob was a man of honesty and integrity, he loved and was loved by his family. He also loved nature, hard work and a beer about 3:00 in the afternoon. He could fix almost anything, in his own way, and had a great sense of humor. Bob will truly be missed. A celebration of Bob’s life will take place June 30, 2012 at 1:00 pm at Mara Community Church, Riverside Road, Mara, BC. Online condolences can be sent through Bob’s obituary at

DEBORAH ANN TRACY (MORRISON) May 25, 1955 - May 31, 2012 After a courageous battle acy with illness, Deb Tracy 1, passed away May 31, 2012. Deb started her working career at The Alpiner Inn, and at FreDor’s Chicken, owned and operated by Fred and Doreen Melnick (most recently known as Eagle Pass Landing) before being hired at the e Eagle Valley News. It was as here she found her life’s ife’s work; having a natural talent for creative ad and page design. Her skill was amazing, and she was quick to learn new computer programs and new methods of design. She was completely comfortable with always changing technology, could master all things new in a heartbeat, whether it was a computer, a microwave or shopping on eBay. She embraced the Internet long before the rest of us caught onto it and, in turn, it opened a whole new world for her. Deb lived most of her life in the MalakwaSicamous area, with her parents, Henry and Nellie Morrison. Once she was transferred to the Salmon Arm Observer full time, though, it made sense for her to make her home in that community. Also, her life had changed dramatically with the passing of her parents and then her sister, Audrey. Deb was generous to a fault, and always made sure her friends and co-workers were celebrated on birthdays and other special occasions. Her loyalty to her friends and family was unwavering. Deb became a big hockey fan, and enjoyed being part of the Sicamous Eagles organization, jumping in to help in any way she could – from souvenir program production, to flipping hamburgers, to sitting in the stands and cheering on the boys. The year she took in billets was a fun time for her. She spoiled them rotten and her boys adored her. When one of them left behind a little kitten before going back home, she discovered she loved cats as much as she loved dogs, and adopted “Kitty.” She met the love of her life, Tim Tracy in June 2004 and moved to Salmon Arm in May 2005 to continue her career at the Salmon Arm Observer. Tim and Deb were married July 22, 2006 and Deb became step-mom to Michael, James and Shannon Tracy, and grandmom to Caitlynn and Dillon Tracy. Deb treasured Tim’s family and loved to shop for them at Christmas and birthdays. In her 33 years of working for the Eagle Valley News and Salmon Arm Observer, Deb showed a remarkable work ethic. Always on time, she had the coffee on for everyone else, was always working as quickly and efficiently as she possibly could and was incredibly passionate about her job. Deb was predeceased by her parents Henry and Nellie Morrison, and sister Audrey Smith. She is survived by her husband Tim Tracy, sister Donna Baldry, brother Larry Hedman, brother-inlaw Jim Smith, nephews John and Garnet Smith and their families, plus her step-family Michael, James and Shannon, plus grandkids Caitlynn and Dillon Tracy. A Celebration of Life will be held on Thursday, June 14 at 11:00 am, in the chapel at Bower’s Funeral Home in Salmon Arm. In lieu of flowers a donation to the Salmon Arm SPCA would be appreciated.

Changing ways of fatherhood These days, most fathers are as much involved in raising children as mothers: they scold, cuddle, nurture, help with homework, and change diapers. Single fathers are also more prevalent than ever before. These men are learning how to constantly adapt to changing situations as they assume do-


mestic responsibilities in their own way. Even if their way is different from mom’s, their parenting is as crucial and valid as that of women. So, when celebrating Father’s Day this year, thank the dads you know for what they do. They are, in fact, pioneers for the fathers of tomorrow.

It is often with a gift that costs nothing, a little trifle that says everything, that we offer our dad something to remember all his life. For children and adults alike, a homemade booklet of coupons for treats and special care is sure to be a hit. C o u -

pons might include an offer of breakfast in bed, taking out the garbage, or promising to help Dad weed the vegetable garden. Teenagers can surprise everyone by getting up a bit earlier on Father’s Day to mow the lawn. This will let Dad relax and read the newspaper at breakfast while he enjoys a clean-cut yard. Teens might also wash the car or promise to replace Dad in the kitchen when it’s his turn to make supper. All are gestures full of meaning at a time of life when communication can some- times be difficult. Adults can opt to take their fathers on a memorable outing centred on an activity they love: golf, fishing, cycling or to a restaurant or museum. If your father is advancing in years, you might simply lend an ear to his needs as he likely did for you all his life. Offer to prepare some of his favourite dishes, do a few domes-
