Ready to make the catch: Wayne Baldwin works on stacking a wall of sandbags to protect the water pump underneath Russ and Hilda Skinner’s Canoe residence from the rising Shuswap Lake. Officials are predicting Shuswap Lake will peak sometime next week at 20-year levels. On Tuesday morning the lake level was at 349.1 metres, however more rain is in the forecast.

Keep the gum boots and umbrellas handy. While the tail end of one system segued into a ridge of high pressure, bringing gradual drying and temperatures into the high 20s to 30s, another system is expected to bring more rain by the weekend. “It’s the season to be thinking about severe weather,” says Doug Lundquist, warning preparedness meteorologist with Environment Canada, who notes the advancing cold-air system could arrive with severe thunderstorms. “June is normally wet; I call it the mon-

soonal month, but this one is on steroids.” Between June 1 and 16, the weather station at Salmon Arm Airport measured 80 mm of rain, considerably higher than normal rainfall, which is 63 mm for the entire month. Heavy rain and rapid snowmelt at upper levels has swollen rivers and resulted in the BC River Forecast Centre issuing a flood warning for the Shuswap River downstream near Enderby, and a flood watch for Shuswap Lake and tributaries, including Eagle River.

Longtime CSRD director dies

The Salmon Arm Barrel Bonanza

Remembrance: Ted Bacigalupo lauded for his service to the region.

We would like to thank our sponsors for making this event possible:


Reaction to the death of Ted Bacigalupo, longtime director of the Columbia Shuswap Regional District, and current chair, last Wednesday, has been a mixture of sadness and accolades. “Director Bacigalupo was instrumental in launching the CSRD Parks plans, which identified linear greenway trails as a priority for local communities,” says a June 15 Shuswap Trail Alliance release. “He also worked closely with the South Shuswap Recreational Trail Society to create the Blind Bay parallel trail project. And was a tireless champion of the Shuswap Lake Integrated Planning Process (SLIPP). Earlier this year, Bacigalupo was honoured with the 2012 Shuswap Trail Award acknowledging his outstanding contributions to the development of regional greenway trails on behalf of the directors and staff of the regional district. Shuswap Water Action Team (SWAT) president Ray Nadeau expressed his sadness and admiration for the longtime CSRD director. “Ted was one of the most outstanding leaders our area has ever had. He worked tire-

lessly for the community that he loved so much, participating in almost every meeting and event in the area and beyond,” said Nadeau, describing Bacigalupo as an honest, nononsense, ‘tell-it-like it-is,’ politician with a good wit and sense of humour. “Our community and our environment is a much better place today thanks to Ted and his great leadership. He has set the bar very high...” Bacigalupo was first elected to the position of Electoral Area C South Shuswap director in 1999, serving in that capacity for 13 years. “It was a role he filled with tremendous dedication, putting in many hours attending as many community meetings and functions as possible,” says a CSRD media release. “ In addition, he championed the causes of the various commissions and committees on which he served; most notably the Okanagan Regional Library Board, where he served as chair for the past five years, and SLIPP. Bacigalupo was also on the executive of the Southern Interior Local Government Association (SILGA). Regional district vice-chair Revelstoke Mayor Dave Raven called Bacigalupo’s death a real loss, not

Welcome To Dr. Eric Van Bergeyk

Dr. Gene Tymkiw and staff would like to welcome Dr. Eric Van Bergeyk to join the dental practice as an associate dentist. Dr. Van Bergeyk is a recent graduate from UBC dentistry, and now returns to Salmon Arm to begin a new and exciting profession. Eric was raised in Salmon Arm by his proud parents Bill and Zina Van Bergeyk. He is a graduate of Salmon Arm Salmon Arm Senior Secondary (1995). Eric has 3 wonderful children and is excited to return home to be with them. Prior to going into dentistry, Eric spent several years working in Calgary as an aircraft structural repair technician. He then decided to pursue dentistry and completed 12 years of university education. Eric obtained a B.Sc. degree in Biopsychology from UBCOkanagan (2008) and earned a Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) degree from UBC-Vancouver (2012). Dr. Van Bergeyk begins his practice this July, and is accepting new patients. Eric looks forward to meeting many new people, and is excited to live and serve as a dentist in the beautiful community of Salmon Arm.

only to his family and friends, but also to the wider community he served. “We’re all deeply saddened. Ted was a good friend to all of us on the board. He very proudly served his area,” said Raven. “He was a true gentleman and he taught me many lessons. He will be sadly missed and my heart goes out to his family and his many friends.” CSRD chief administrative officer Charles Hamilton, said he was deeply saddened to hear of the death. “On behalf of all the staff at the CSRD, I would like to extend my heartfelt sympathies to his family and friends,” says Hamilton. “Ted was a great character with whom I had a wonderful working relationship. I will miss him very much indeed.” Bacigalupo died peacefully with his family by his side and his family has expressed their heart-felt thanks, to those who have offered support through the recent challenging times. They appreciate those who shared admiration for him, both as a friend and as a dedicated member of the local community. “Over the past few months, he was greatly comforted by this support and also by the coming together of his immediate fam-

Police warn about garage opener thefts The Salmon Arm RCMP are warning residents to keep a close eye on their remote garage door openers. In the past week, several unlocked vehicles have been entered in the Salmon Arm area and the garage openers have been stolen. Police suspect these items have been taken to gain access to the residence while the home-

owner is away. Staff Sgt. Kevin Keane of the Salmon Arm RCMP is suggesting city residents check vehicles to ensure the garage door opener is not missing, and if it is to follow the manufacturer’s instructions to change the remote frequency. Police also recommend removing items of value and locking vehicles at all times.

Tax freedom an illusion Pardon me if I neglected to celebrate. Last week was Canada’s Tax Freedom Day, where calculations done by the Fraser Institute draw attention to the amount of taxes Canadians pay each year to local, provincial and federal governments. The idea is that if Canadians were required to pay all taxes up front, they would have to give governments each and every dollar they earned before Tax Freedom Day. “It’s when we start working for ourselves and not for the government,” reads the slogan. This year, Tax Freedom Day fell on June 11, one day later than last year, due in part to increased EI premiums at the federal level and rises in B.C.’s medical service plan payments. The Fraser Institute calls this a troubling trend, which, they note, is compounded by the fact that the federal and almost all provincial governments are running deficits this year. If the Canadian government covered their current spending with greater tax increases instead of borrowing the shortfall, Tax Freedom Day wouldn’t arrive until June 23. Sounds pretty depressing, doesn’t it? It’s the kind of statistic that gets people all hot under the collar. After all, who likes to pay taxes instead of pocketing that money for a new car or a trip to Disneyland? Think of what we’d all do with the money if we didn’t have to pay it to the government in taxes. We’d have more coin in our pockets and life would be sweet, right? As with many statistics, there’s a catch. My attention to this was drawn last year by Vancouver Sun columnist Craig McInnes, who rightly points out that the Fraser Institute’s calculation fails to account for how you benefit from paying taxes. Do your kids go to school? Did you? Do you drive on the roads? Does water come out of your tap when you turn it on? Do you visit the doctor without being presented with a bill for service or get that knee operation or have some of your prescription drug costs covered? Do the police come if you call because someone’s breaking into your house? Do you get Old Age Security payments? Do you take comfort in knowing that if you suddenly lost your job, there would be financial help for you and your family? These things and more are why we pay taxes — because they fund projects and services that no individual could ever afford to take on. Yes, one can argue that we need to keep a close eye on our tax dollars to ensure they are spent effectively, but really imagine what living in a country without taxes would look like. I wouldn’t be breaking out the champagne to celebrate Tax Freedom Day without considering the other side of the equation. Our bank accounts might look richer, but think of how much poorer Canadian society would be.



School board should settle on seven Reducing the number of School District #83 trustees from nine to seven may not produce an enormous windfall. With an annual stipend of $9,800, trustees certainly don’t do the job for the money. They do it because they care about children and managing the education system in the best way possible. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t room for efficiencies — and saving close to $20,000 a year is one more way to stretch increasingly tight budgets. Teachers’ jobs are being cut in this district because fewer students reduces the demand for them. It only make sense that the needs of fewer students could also be managed by fewer trustees. It also seems to us that a reduction in the number

of trustees would not negatively impact the operations of the local school district. We agree with North Okanagan Shuswap Teachers’ Association president Lynda Bennett that it seems a bit excessive to pay a trustee $9,800 a year to represent a single school in the North Shuswap. Why not combine the North and South Shuswap areas under the direction of a single trustee? The responsibility for other geographical areas could also easily be divided between some of the remaining trustees. Bennett accurately points out that teachers are being asked to do more and more, with less and less. It would seem appropriate for the school board to do the same.

The Observer asked:

How do you feel about graduating high school?

Chris McFeeters “It’s awesome. Just getting out and getting to explore, to find jobs.”

Dani Valgardson “Kind of nervous but looking forward to it. It’s been 12 years – I think I am ready.”

Felicia Adams “I am nervous a little bit, but excited.”

Leo Filiatrault “I get to do what I really like, which is auto engineering. I can’t do that here, it is another start.”

Taylor Jones “It’s cool, but weird to know that we don’t come back in September.”

Finding ways for people to Pesticide bans unnecessary choose work over welfare BC VIEWS

Tom Fletcher VICTORIA – The B.C. government has taken some modest steps to tighten up the province’s income assistance system, and to encourage people to work when they are able to. With Premier Christy Clark swooping in to take credit, Social Development Minister Stephanie Cadieux unveiled changes that included fixing the worst mistake in B.C. Liberal policy. Cadieux acknowledged that B.C. was the only province that clawed back all earnings from employable welfare recipients, and she announced that from now on they will be able to earn up to $200 a month without penalty. The exemption for disabled people is increased from $500 to $800 a month. Another important change is requiring welfare recipients to file income tax returns. People can now do temporary work when it comes along, report the income and take advantage of the various tax credits that come from participating in society instead of just living off it. Any experience earning money is valuable experience. With baby boomers starting to retire in big numbers, the expected labour shortage has begun across Western Canada. And yet, increasing numbers of foreign workers are coming in to do farm and other work, while many young people are unemployed. Finance Minister Kevin Falcon took note of this during his budget preparations. Increasing numbers of young, employable people were applying for welfare in southern B.C., while jobs go begging in the booming northeast. Falcon mused about setting up a program to provide training and plane fare for these people, an idea quickly dubbed “welfare air.” Another effort to get young people working is Jobfest, a rock-themed road show currently touring northern B.C. towns. It attracts young people with music and souvenirs like drumsticks and guitar picks, and

offers them skills assessment using sexy iPad apps and graphics that depict carpentry as cool. If Jobfest and welfare air sound a bit desperate, it’s because they are. They illustrate our society’s problem. We have a public school system where students pass whether they do the work or not. The culture assumes self-esteem is more important than achievement. The teachers’ union constantly sets an example that the way to get what you want is to stamp your feet and demand it from government. What do we expect young people to learn? And how easy is it for B.C. to slip into a Greece-like tailspin, where a majority expects to be carried on the backs of the shrinking minority who do productive work? Old-timers might recall when Mike Harcourt’s NDP government took over from the allegedly miserly Social Credit regime and raised welfare rates. They compounded that mistake by relaxing eligibility rules and making it easier for employable people to stay on welfare. After a couple of years of this wealth redistribution, 10 per cent of the B.C. population was on welfare, with more piling on every day. Faced with the results of this staggering blunder, Harcourt lashed out at “cheats, deadbeats and varmints” scamming B.C. taxpayers and launched a crackdown on fraud. Later the NDP cut the basic rate for single employables to $500 a month. Today it stands at $610, and the NDP looks poised to repeat history. Surrey MLA Jagrup Brar did a month-long publicity stunt in January, living on welfare by wandering from shelter to food bank with TV cameras trailing behind. Brar would have been better off if welfare air had been available. Instead of learning to live off the burgeoning urban handout industry, he could have gone up to Dawson Creek or Fort St. John and worked as a labourer. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and

The infestations of weeds and bugs is getting unmanageable and starting to detract from the healthy community that the pesticide-free communities thought they were achieving. The frivolous and unenforceable municipal pesticide bylaws promoted by the Canadian Cancer Society (CCS), Pesticide Free BC, Wildsight, Suzuki and others are starting to wear thin on homeowners and city staff. The consistent themes employed by these groups – “better safe than sorry” and “we are the trusted authority” – are inferences that the Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) has fallen asleep at the wheel and that their extensive and comprehensive reviews of pesticides

have no credibility. These environmentalists and NGOs have never provided specific lists of lawn-care products they say are harmful and lump all pesticides into the same “toxic” category. A report just recently released by the PMRA, listing Canadian sales of pesticides in 2008, provides some surprising statistics. Of all pesticides sold in Canada, over 60 per cent are for agriculture while less than two per cent are for the domestic market, which includes the lawn care products. The top 10 domestic pesticides are dominated by swimming pools and spa products. So if these environmentalists and NGOs feel the PMRA got it wrong on pesticide reviews why are

they not raising the alarm on the reviews of pesticides used in your local pool? The truth is that the PMRA is known for the most stringent pesticide reviews in the world and there is no need to worry about exposure to pesticides on lawns or in pools when the directions for use are followed. The BC Special Committee on Pesticides chaired by MLA Bill Bennett listened to the experts and made the informed decision that science does not support the banning of lawn care products. It’s time for municipal councillors to get on with issues that really matter, like the economy, lack of jobs and rising taxes. Paul Visentin

Praise for balanced coverage Really? Letter writer B. Campbell obviously doesn’t read Tom Fletcher’s regular right wing rant.... It’s surely meant as an antidote to the Observer’s “obvious” slant. For the record, I find the Observer very balanced and a fair reflection of this community’s values. I don’t al-

ways agree with the editorial, but in a democracy we are supposed to discuss and find consensus on a variety of issues. It shouldn’t be black and white, the economy or the environment. Balance is what is sadly lacking in many media outlets. To those who don’t like

the Observer’s content? Well, you don’t have to read it... which reminds me of a quote by George Orwell: “Journalism is printing what someone else doesn’t want printed. Everything else is public relations” Richard Sevigny

One sees left, the other right Your letter-writing correspondent B. Campbell, looking at your paper through blue-tinted spectacles, sees a regrettable “leftist slant on most environmental and political issues.” Through such spectacles, the regular columns from

MP Colin Mayes and from Tom Fletcher doubtless appear unbiased and objective. Having spectacles of a different colour, I see these two as right-wing propagandists, and lament the absence of balancing or-

ange-tinted columns in the Opinion section. I hope that you will continue to do your best to give all sides equal coverage, as good newspapers pride themselves on doing. Ray Morris

The Salmon Valley School, located one-half mile above Schwebb’s Bridge, burned to the ground. Besides children’s books, an organ belonging to the Methodists was lost to the flames.


This week district council appointed Constable O. W Hughes assistant collector of trade licences, poll tax and also weed inspection.


City council appeared satisfied with a water board ruling that the residents of the Broadview area would be entitled to 55,000 gallons of water a day from the city system until 1942, the district to pay $1.50 per month to the city except in times of water shortages when the cost would be 90 cents. Mrs. J.D. McGuire and Mrs. A.S. McKim were hostesses at the Women’s Institute meeting which saw T. Prescott, public school principal, as guest speaker. He spoke on changes in education saying these would make it necessary to provide schools with laboratories, workshops, libraries and places for physical activity. He also noted teachers’ standards were becoming demanding – senior matriculation, two years of normal school and two years successful teaching being required for a permanent certificate.


Loss was estimated in excess of $8,000 when fire destroyed Ross Graham’s sawmill at Two Mile Creek, Sicamous. Learning it would cost $5,000 to pave Shuswap Avenue from Front to Hudson Street, council decided to scrap the project.

School board to consider reducing trustee numbers By Tracy Hughes OBSERVER STAFF

In an environment where the government is asking teachers to do more with less, the president of the North Okanagan Shuswap Teachers’ Association (NOSTA) is suggesting the school board do the same. Lynda Bennett addressed the board at last week’s regular meeting, requesting consideration for the reduction in the number of board trustees from nine to seven. She cites declining student enrolment and the fact that the majority of school boards in the province are made up of seven trustees. In B.C., eight school districts have boards with nine trustees, 43 districts have seven trustees and nine districts have only fivetrustee boards. While School District #83, is one of the larger

districts in terms of geographical area, Bennett points out that one trustee’s area includes only one school, North Shuswap Elementary, while another’s has only two schools – Sorrento Elementary and Carlin ElementaryMiddle School. Bennett suggests these two areas could easily be combined, as well as possibly dividing up the Ranchero and Falkland area to eliminate a second trustee. Based on a trustee stipend of $9,800 per year, cutting the board by two trustees would save $19,600. Trustees also claim expenses, but this figure would likely not change, as the remaining trustees would shoulder the workload. School board chair Bobbi Johnson says this issue has been considered in the past, but cutting trustee positions

has not proven popular. “The communities want to keep their trustees,” she says. Johnson says the workload shouldered by the trustees isn’t just about a geographical area.

Bobbi Johnson SCHOOL BOARD CHAIR “The trustees from some of these areas can be some of the hardestworking trustees, sit on many committees and do a lot of work for the district as a whole.” Bennett says the issue came to her attention during discussions on raising remuneration

for trustees, as they are among the lowest paid in the province. Rather than allocate more, Bennett suggests using the money saved from cutting two trustees to bolster the salaries of the remaining seven. This would be consistent with the government’s net zero mandate that teachers are being asked to accept. “Teachers are being told that for two years they need to take zero and then, for two more years, the equivalent of zero. We are told to do more and more with less and less. If this is a difficulty for our trustees, perhaps they can rethink their position on this latest round of bargaining.” Johnson says the issue will come before the board for consideration in September. The earliest the reduction could take place would be after the next municipal election in 2014.

Council’s input sought on cellular tower installation By Martha Wickett OBSERVER STAFF

With three cellular towers planned for Telus, two in Salmon Arm and one in Canoe, city council has been asked its opinion on the locations. Corey Paiement, the city’s director of development services, explained Monday to the city’s development and planning services meeting that Standard Land Company Inc. plans to install the towers on behalf of Telus and, as required by Industry Canada, which governs such installations, must consult with the city. The first of the three towers is proposed for 1481 - 10th Ave. SW, a parcel near the Mall at Piccadilly that contains part of a parking lot and an empty storage yard. To the east is the remainder of the parking lot and storage yard, to the west a vacant parcel zoned residential, to the south 10th Avenue SW as well as a larger parcel with a mix of vacant land and, to the north, Adams Lake Indian Band property, Lot 7. The tower would be 29 metres high; for comparison, the Shaw Centre building is about 19 metres.

Also to come to council later is the proposal for a 45-metre tower at 6790-56th Street NE in the Lyman Hill area of Canoe. A third tower, at 14.9 metres, is planned for 2890 - 10th Ave. (TransCanada Highway) NE, but, according to Industry Canada guidelines, will not be required to come before council. Although a report from city staff noted that staff would prefer

stantially better than siting the towers within urbanized, residential areas of the city,” stated the planning department report. Coun. Alan Harrison agreed. “This is not a debate about cell phones and whether it’s good or bad... It’s about a cell phone tower and is this a good location. I think it’s a really good spot to put it,” he said, noting it’s not in a residential

It sounds a little like smart meters. This is where we’d like to put them and you have no authority.”

Chad Eliason CITY COUNCILLOR property zoned industrial, the proposed location is preferable to others. Staff also point out that Industry Canada has the authority on the proposal, not the city. “From a land use compatibility perspective, the current and anticipated or future land use patterns in and around the proposed site may not be the best option but may be sub-

zone and is reasonably central. “From my perspective, I don’t think saying we don’t want a tower there will help people with their cell phones. If people come and say they don’t want it there, I would say, where do you want to put it?” Harrison was refer-



ring to comments from Coun. Chad Eliason that he expects to see a good turnout at the next meeting from people concerned about the towers. “It sounds a little like smart meters,” said Eliason. “This is where we’d like to put them and you have no authority.” He asked where existing towers are and Paiement said there is one on top of the Telus building downtown and likely others on mountaintops around Salmon Arm, such as Bastion. Coun. Ken Jamieson said he’d like to learn more about emissions when a Standard Land Company representative comes to the next council meeting. A rep will attend the afternoon session of the June 25 meeting to answer questions from council. As part of the required consultation process, the proponent must notify land occupants within an area three times the height of the tower. Council voted unanimously to forward the issue to the next meeting. Coun. Marg Kentel was absent.

Honoured for excellence By Cavelle Layes OBSERVER STAFF

They go above and beyond, and for this they are recognized. Corryn Grayston, representing the Salmon Arm chamber of Commerce, and Ron Langridge, representing Salmon Arm Downtown, awarded three different plaques to signify the achievements of businesses and individuals who help make Salmon Arm a better place. Angel Agassiz, the Podollan general manager, was nominated by a number of people in the area, but one nomination seemed to stand out. A customer wrote in explaining how on their very first trip to Canada Agassiz was kind enough to not only direct them to the nearest Tim Hortons but to buy them their very first roll up the rim coffee. It was this type of ser-

vice that made Agassiz an obvious choice for the 2012 Excellence in Customer Service Award â&#x20AC;&#x201C; an award reserved for an individual who demonstrates commitment to excellent service and is dedicated to providing high quality customer care. A speechless Agassiz was in disbelief upon receiving the award, as tears of joy streamed down her face. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This really means a lot,â&#x20AC;? she said as she admired the plaque presented to her in honour of her achievements. The next award to be given out was the 2012 Business Excellence Award. This award is presented to a for-profit business that consistently demonstrates a commitment to excellence, business growth and development. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s winner was Askewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, chosen not only for being a valuable role-model for

Cooking up a success story By Cavelle Layes OBSERVER STAFF

She dazzled the taste buds of chefs and judges straight across the country. Now this hometown girl is crossing borders and taking on the Americas. Jenna Angle will be heading to Las Vegas, a city known for its fivestar restaurants and world-renowned chefs, to represent Canada in the Hans Buschkens Americas culinary competition in July 2013. Angle has been cooking and competing, since she was a high school student as Salmon Arm Secondary. Her love of cooking stemmed from her family, who regularly host holiday cook-offs and exchange large baskets of delectable goodies . While no other family member has pursued a career as a chef, Angle’s inherited passion for the culinary arts had her diving in head first. She took part in her first competition while still in high school, winning a regional competition before heading to the provincials. Angle graduated

from SAS in 2007 and continued to take on the culinary arts program at Thompson Rivers University. She finished off her culinary education in Dec 2011 at Okanagan College. Angle has since worked in a number of Okanagan restaurants under many of the best chefs in the area. This wasn’t Angle’s first time competing at this level of competition. Last year she had made her way to the provincials but placed second, which kept her from continuing on to the national competition. The regionals, as well as the provincials, are what is known as black-box competitions, where competitors enter not knowing what ingredients they will be cooking with. “You want your menu to show technique. You want to get in as many different textures and flavors and colors as possible,” says Angle. Angle’s hard work and skills paid off, after placing first in the provincials she advanced to the national competition, which took place earlier this month in


Top chef: Salmon Arm’s Jenna Angle will be competing with some of the best junior chefs from North and South America. Nova Scotia. The nationals are not black-box but instead require chefs to plan a three-course meal for a party of eight. If the meal does not come out exactly as it is presented, the chef is deducted points. Her elaborate menu, including pan-seared scallops, pork tenderloin roulade and a citrus-infused, marscapone souffle, earned her first place.

Angle admits she spends the days before, trying to keep her nerves in check but once she is competing everything is fine. “It is like a normal day and I am just pushing through another table of eight,” says Angle. If Angle wins the Americas competition, she will be off to Norway to compete in the International competition later next year.

Oster gets royal treatment



Dr. C. Hammoud, Ph.D. recommends:

After spending over 69 years writing and performing music, a Salmon Arm man has brought home what he believes to be the greatest honour in Canada. Al Oster was awarded the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal on June 15 at Delta Grand Okanagan Resort in Kelowna. The award was presented by Steven Point, the Lieutenant Governor of B.C., for Oster’s dedicated service to his peers, to his community and Canada. And he couldn’t be happier. Oster proudly shows off his new medal which displays the image of Queen Elizabeth II on the front and the dates of the diamond jubilee on the back. Before moving to Salmon Arm, Oster, who has earned himself the nickname ‘Yukon Balladeer,’ spent many years recording the vibrant history and folklore that encompasses

Honour: Al Oster with his Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal. the Yukon and Klondike era. Through over 69 years of song writing, Oster has turned history, mysteries, stories of triumph and tragedy into a collection of over 70 songs. His country/folk style has proven to be well received among his many fans, as generation after generation have listened to his emotional melodies on records, LPs, tapes, CDs, and now even YouTube. Oster accepted the Yukon Heritage award in 1993 and was ap-

pointed to the Order of Canada in 1999. Now Oster has a diamond to add to the collection. “I am running out of room on my wall to put them,” jokes the music pioneer. “The Diamond Jubilee is the greatest honour you can receive in Canada, everything else just gravy added to it,” says Oster, referring to his long list of other awards. “I need to put these in my scrapbook,” says Oster, whose grin never wavers.

Playground plans proceed at Blackburn Park By Lachlan Labere OBSERVER STAFF

The city is set to begin phase 2 of construction of a universally accessible playground in Blackburn Park. Council has approved the purchase of school-age playground equipment for the park to the tune of $111,835 plus HST. The equipment will be provided by Rec-Tec Industries Inc. An additional $71,947 plus HST will go to Rec-Tec for pourin-place recycled rubber safety surfacing. Phase 1 of the project, the installation of a pre-school-age playground with the rubber surfacing was completed in October 2011 for $191,713. Both phases have been made possible as a result of partnerships between the city, community groups and businesses. Salmon Arm’s Rotary clubs have put in $121,000, Salmon Arm Savings and Credit Union has kicked in $80,000

while Tire Stewardship BC has given $50,000. According to a memo to council from engineering and public works director Rob Niewenhuizen, the Rotary clubs requested

that Rec-Tec be used for the project based on their work in designing the Fletcher Park playground and splash park. Coun. Alan Harrison was supportive of go-

ing with Rec-Tec, and commended the community groups who have helped make the Blackburn Park project possible. “Regardless of whether we look at

phase one separate from phase 2, it looks to me like $251,000 came from sources other than the city, so I think the community needs to know that SASCU has donated $80,000 to

this project – as a local banking firm, that’s a substantial amount of money,” said Harrison. “Rotary has donated $121,000, which is phenomenal. From the city’s point of view, it’s

a huge benefit.” Coun. Ken Jamieson also made sure to compliment city parks supervisor Brad Ackerman, who has co-ordinated the effort.

Selects claim championship Calling it a nail-biter would be an understatement. The U16 Boys Shuswap Selects played two games on the weekend in Penticton in their quest for the Thompson-Okanagan zone championship. On Saturday, they faced a hard-working Vernon United team in gusty winds. The Selects got off to a slow start, ending the half down 1-0. However, the team came together in the second, winning a penalty shot in the first five minutes. The boys then started to play the possession style of game that has worked for them all season. Final score, 4-1 Shuswap. In the final Sunday, the Selects faced rival Kelowna United. While Shuswap had the advantage of having played on the fields the day before, Kelowna was fresh and wellrested. It was a tough, intense back-and-forth battle from start to finish, with several minor injuries on both sides. At the end of the first half, the score remained 0-0. At the end of the second, still no score. Then two overtime halves, where Shuswap rallied, dominating possession, but, at the end of a total of 110 minutes of play, still a scoreless draw. Tensions rose for hometown fans as it became clear the championship would be settled by penalty kicks. The Selects, however, remained calm and cool.

martinis last week was deemed a remarkable success as they executed their plays well and had the most spirited game of the season. Though short in stature but large in heart, Karen Tanchak stepped up to her first game as keeper, stopping a penalty shot and coming up with several key saves. Eleven brave but tired souls played their hearts out until the final whistle on Tuesday, June 12 in Vernon. Final score: Merlot 1, North Okanagan United 1.

Ted tie


Champions: U16 Boys Shuswap Select player Lachlan Hicks leaps in celebration with keeper Morgan Crandlemire, centre, and Westlee Bischoff, right, of the team’s TOYSL championship final, 3-1 penalty-kick win over Kelowna United Sunday. Shuswap keeper Morgan Crandlemire waited out the first Kelowna shooter, stopping his shot. The Selects’ first three shooters then calmly buried theirs, while Kelowna got just one in the back of the net. Three Select shooters were all that was needed. Another fantastic save from Crandlemire stopped the third Kelowna attempt and the fourth Kelowna shot ricocheted off the crossbar – erupting in a celebration from the new Thompson-Okanagan

Youth Soccer League champions and their fans. Coached by David Knight and assistant coach Ken Kantymir, the team is made up of Chad Baker, Westlee Bischoff, Eric Brock, Nick Chesney, Morgan Crandlemire, Quinton Fahlman, Zach Friedenberger, Micah Gunn, Nathan Hawes, Lachlan Hicks, Nate Kantymir, Adam Luchkanych, Jacob New, Kyle Nicholson, Shea Smith and Dylan Staal. The U16 Boys Provincials will be held in Aldergrove July 5 to 8.

To provincials The Shuswap U18 Girls are also heading to provincials. Coached by Ian McLellan, the girls advanced to the final but lost a hard-fought game to Kelowna. However, they will be a contender at the Provincials because a regional berth is added given that Kelowna is hosting the U18 girls tournament.

Super strategy In Women’s Masters play, Shuswap Merlot’s tactical session over

The top two teams on the Masters Division of the North Okanagan Women’s Soccer Association squared off in Vernon June 12. First-place Ted United took on second-place Impact. The game was a seesaw battle that saw most of the play in the middle of the field. Ted United was first to strike after a hand ball by an Impact player inside the 18-yard box resulted in a penalty shot scored by Kyla Sherman. Impact stepped up the pressure near the end of the second half resulting in a wellplaced shot by Eddie Ramsay. Ted United had a few good chances late in the game but were thwarted by the Impact’s goalie. The game ended in a 1-1 draw.

Learning martial arts, life skills To wrap up the first successful year for the Community Karate & Kickboxing Schools in Sicamous and Salmon Arm, the Provincial Martial Arts Association hosted a karate tournament for these clubs Saturday, June 16 in Salmon Arm. For the majority of the students, it was their first martial arts competition and, according to instructor Holly Raczynski, they couldn’t have performed better. All competitors participated in two divisions: kata (patterned movements) and sparring. Raczynski notes it is not just karate that the students are learning. “Not only are they learning martial art skills, they are also building their self-esteem and confidence.

It teaches them how to focus their attention and believe in themselves.” • Division 1 results: Kata – 1. Evan Fankhauser, 2. Oscar Mayes, 3. Alexander Smolne; Sparring (tall) –1. Oscar Mayes, 2.

SilverBacks busy with signing, hiring verBacks 2011-2012 season who made a big enough impact to draw the attention of new boss Troy Mick is 17-year-old forward Michael Klonarakis. He was signed by the ‘Backs after a strong end to last season and an impressive Spring Camp this past May. Klonarakis played for the Pursuit of Excellence two years ago and then returned to POE after being released by Prince George BCHL to play for the 18U Prep squad were he tallied three goals and five assists for eight points in 13 games. Klonarakis, who put up five points in 32 games with the Spruce Kings, was good for two points in eight games in Salmon Arm but it was his work ethic and speed that made him an effective forward for the Apes as the season pushed from February into March. Mick is was happy to have a young man he knows well. “I have coached Klonny the last two years and am very proud he chose to sign here in Salmon Arm. He loved the experience he got last year as an AP and now he is looking forward to contributing in a big way this year. His speed, work ethic and commitment to the game are second to none.

The Salmon Arm SilverBacks have signed two affiliate players from the 2011-2012 season, including 18year old Salmon Arm native Bryden Marsh. Marsh, a SilverBack affiliate player during the 11-12 season and former two-year Golden Rocket, dressed in 12 contests for the SilverBacks last season, recording one assist and two penalty minutes as he did his best to make a lasting impression on the organization as the season came to a close. The hometown athlete played more than a full season in the KIJHL with Golden before donning a SilverBack jersey for the first time in late 2011. The SilverBacks would like to congratulate Marsh on his accomplishment and wish him the best with his off-season plans. “Bryden is a big power forward who skates very well and loves to win the battles in the corner with a very good skill set. He had a great camp in May and it was a no brainer for me to offer him a spot on our club for this year,” said GM and head coach Troy Mick. “He will have a break out year for us and we are happy that he is staying in Salmon Arm to pursue his NCAA dreams.” Another affiliate player from the Sil-

Children’s day fun for families There’s a place where Canada Day is just for kids. The free children’s festival is ready to roll out at the Salmon Arm Fairgrounds from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. July 1. Some 5,000 children and their families enjoyed last year’s event and organizers are expecting just as many to show up for the fun, games and food this year. Included in the 2012 festivities is a main stage featuring Kiki the Eco Elf, Michael Mitchell, Neale Bacon and his Crazy Critters, and local musical group, One Camel Short. Mitchell is renowned as the “Troubadour of Canada’s Heritage.” This awardwinning singer, songwriter and storyteller is on a never-ending mission to stir up some patriotic spirit in the hearts and minds of all Canadians through lively songs and humorous stories of our history, geography and some of the wacky quirks that identify us as Canadians. Neale Bacon and his Crazy Critters offer squeakyclean family entertainment featuring ventriloquism, comedy, and magic. New for 2012 will be free wagon rides offered by Joyce Marchant. Other free activities include several inflatable bouncy houses, a dance exhibition by local dance studios, 4H small animal display, plus lots of arts and activity tents. The dance studio will be set up in the arena so the show can go on – in comfort – rain or shine.

Celebrate Canada: The Salmon Arm Children’s Festival, which is free for all, runs July 1, beginning at 10 a.m. Organizers have created a free festival so all area children and their families can join in the Canada Day fun. Fifty-cent games will be there for the playing, including the ever-popular fish pond, tattoo parlour and wacky hair salon. First Nations dancing will take place just before the 12:30 p.m. cake cutting ceremony. Other eats will be available too: The Shuswap Family Resource Centre will serve hamburgers and hotdogs. As well, Shuswap Rotary will sell Panago pizza, with all proceeds going back to the festival. Superspuds will serve French fries and smokies and Icebreakers

will be on hand to provide shaved ice in many flavours. As well, Janet Meunier will be cooking up hotdogs and hamburgers. Shuswap Daycare will have plenty of freezies, pop, water and juice on hand. Families are also welcome to take their own picnic lunches. RCMP will do free photographs and finger-printing through the Child Find program. Every child gets one free ticket on entry, and if they are wearing red, they get a bonus ticket. “The drive for volunteers is on,” says organizer Kari Wilkinson. “We need help with set-up, take-down on June 30th and July 1st, as

well as people to help out during the festival. Certificates are issued for all volunteers.” If anyone is interested in event sponsorship, including providing an item for the silent auction, get in touch with the organizers prior to June 25. “The entire festival is put on through the support of local organizations and businesses,” says Wilkinson. “A special thank you to our humongous sponsor, the Salmon Arm Rotary Club.” For more information, or to volunteer, call Karen Bubola at 250-832-6192 or Kari Wilkinson at 250-832826, or visit

The one-man show includes a full-band sound using computerized technology. Elliott, who will be bringing his Elvis Elite show to Salmon Arm Saturday, June 23, adds something original to every performance.

Get a load of this!

Born and raised in Nanaimo, Elliott had many artistic abilities before stumbling upon his career as a singer and entertainer. His mother, a talented artist in her own right, encouraged Elliott at a very young age to draw and be creative with expressions and originality. He became a freelance cartoonist for the Vancouver Net chain of community papers and captured an award for best provincial cartoonist. With no prior singing abilities, he walked into a karaoke contest at a local mall and was

intrigued by the performances. The contest parameters were set in the era of classic rock and early crooners. Elliott decided to enter at the last minute, just for fun, and found that he had a natural ability to sing and entertain. He did very well, winning a set of Elvis Presley CDs and embracing the rawness and sensuality in Elvis’ singing. This led him to a career as a performer. Since then, Elliott has perfected his act as a tribute artist, using the energy in the music

of Elvis to share with people of all ages the memories and magic of the young Elvis. Elliott was crowned the Top Canadian Tribute Act in 2004, 2005 and 2006 at the Pacific Northwest Elvis Festival in Penticton. His performances have taken him throughout Canada and the U.S. for the last six years. All seats for the June 23 show are reserved. Tickets are $20 per person and are available at the legion or by calling 250-832-3118. Doors open at 6 p.m. and the show gets into high gear at 7.

Teens use talent to help another By Barb Brouwer

New to the Community or Expecting a Baby.... Please call Welcome Wagon today!


Students led by example Friday in a way that provided great entertainment and will help a local family. It was a selfless act, a concert at SAGA Public Art Gallery, organized by members of the Salmon Arm Secondary leadership class. Grade 12 student Mary Ross was discussing the plight of 16-year-old Richard Smith who suffers from a cancer-like disease, with her brother Raymond. Raymond, who graduated from SAS last year, suggested his sister organize a concert to raise funds to help the family with medical costs. And, he offered up his considerable piano-playing ability to start the lineup. Other incredibly talented students hopped on-board, including Skylar Plourde who acted as MC for the concert that was terrific in both content and enthusiasm. Hannah Gomme added her beautiful voice to the show, accompanied by brother Reid on guitar. Shane Gorner shared one of his own songs, accompanied by Raymond, Nick DiCastri and Reid Gomme.

the stage for a terrific Hit the Road Jack, then mellowed with one of her own songs and a Fleetwood Mac cover. From jazz, to swing, to boogie-woogie, folk and beyond, these kids offered a stand-out show, raising $450 for the Smiths in the process. Mary says members of her leadership class and performers came

on-board willingly to take part in the benefit concert â&#x20AC;&#x201C; even though they have never met Smith. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just the fact heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a young boy and we get to live normal lives, and he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, and if we could help him, in any way, that was our goal,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And we need to include Miss MacArthur (teacher).

Horoscope ARIES (March 21 - April 19): As the generation defining conversation between Uranus in your sign and Pluto in Capricorn tightens, there is an inner pressure to change your circumstances. This is a blessing, providing fuel for a profound change. TAURUS (April 20 - May 20): You are inspired now to pursue optimistic changes with a practical bent. The more you feel as if an aim is graspable, the more likely you are to take the risk needed to bring it closer. This strategy ensures you win before you even tried, but does it challenge you enough? GEMINI (May 21 - June 20): It is especially important that you seek your own council, above and beyond anyone else, now and for this year of your life. There is a creative voice emerging which, given enough time and care, will bring forth wild prosperity. Trust yourself. CANCER (June 21 - July 22): There are karmic rewards this week, and you are cashing them in without realizing it. Let go of control and let others work their magic, even if you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what that is just yet. The right person knows someone important. It all leads to breakthroughs for you. LEO (July 23 - August 22): You find special bonds among others and camaraderie in groups. This is a great time to get a group of people together, to share your hopes, dreams, and ambitions. Momentum grows in the presence of good company. The support is largely emotional, though immensely valuable. VIRGO (August 23 - September 22): Your success is assured now, largely because of the support of others. In fact, individuals are more likely to recognize your talent than you are. Let a spontaneous impression inspire you to re-envision the possibilities for your life enough to work towards them.




LIBRA (September 23 - October 22): You may be considering an environment of higher learning, whether that includes graduating or returning to school. You will know if the timing is right. There are only certain times in life when you can go to school, and this is one of them. SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21): The sky is giving you the chance to make effective and welcome changes in habits. While this may seem unglamorous compared to winning the lottery, in a way, you come to understand that a better state of well-being is a prize worth working towards. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21): Matters of attraction and love are likely to flourish. You can be especially flirtatious, as you feel confident in your ability to magnetize and hold interest. Ensure that you attract the best by being unapologetically yourself. It is just what another is looking for. CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19): If you are looking to find or foster love, look around at your gym or the coffee shop you frequent everyday. There is a genuine connection and lively conversation. Those attached will find their partner a great buddy in any fitness regimen. AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18): You sense that the most meaningful occurrences will happen only when you relax and enjoy yourself. As much as that feels counter-intuitive, given how much you care about a breakthrough, be calm enough to allow the best ideas come forward. Force yourself to have fun. PISCES (February 19 - March 20): Perhaps, we are not meant to get along with everyone. We are certainly not meant to live with everyone. Troublesome roommates could leave now, while compatible ones enter. It is a good time to buy or sell your home.

This garden is a work of art… This corner lot in The Ridge is certainly eye catching as you drive by, but on closer inspection truly a labour of love and a team effort. The most obvious focal point is the waterfall that pours into the pond. About 10 fish call this pond home and is protected by a mesh screen to keep the Ospreys from having a quick bite to eat. Bird houses that sit atop tree trunks add a bit of whimsy to a very stunning sea of colour. A large selection of peonies in various colours seem to anchor this hillside space. Bright yellow iris, pinks, hens & chicks, grasses and a miniature Japanese maple are just some of the plantings that balance this yard. rIf you get a chance to see this garucct den, appreciate the finished product e-that a lot of time and love has cre— By Sherry & Laura, auura, ated.

Politicians oppose emergency cuts City council will be voicing its displeasure with proposed federal cuts to the national emergency preparedness programming. A report to council states Public Safety Canada has announced that at the end of 2012 they will be eliminating the federally-funded Joint Emergency Pre-

paredness Program (JEPP), funding for all heavy urban search and rescue teams (HUSAR) as well as critical infrastructure initiatives. The report claims the cancellation will have a “devastating impact on the ability of local government in general and the emergency program in particular.

Coun. Denise Reimer asked for, and received the support of council to write a letter opposing the cuts. “This is a valuable program that we use in the area,” said Reimer. “I would just like to see that we support the program as much as possible and let them know our views.”
