#Vehicles lay embedded in debris in Two Mile after being picked up and carried in a torrent Saturday, June 23, when Sicamous Creek burst its bank.

Lake levels peak, residents return Flooding: Clean up efforts underway for massive damage in Sicamous area. By Lachlan Labere and Barb Brouwer MARKET NEWS STAFF

While water levels will remain high over the next few days, Shuswap and Mara lakes have peaked and are expected to decline without further increases. David Campbell of the BC River Forecast Centre says the lake peaked overnight Tuesday at 349.4 metres, higher than the 1997 level

but well below the 349.66 metre level of 1972. “Shuswap River has been dropping,” he said on a Wednesday afternoon conference call following an update from warning preparedness meteorologist Doug Lundquist. “We’re expecting the lakes to hold and with the favourable weather forecast..., we are going to see a decline over the next few days.” Evacuees from the Two Mile

area finally had an opportunity to head home Tuesday evening, three days after Sicamous Creek blew its banks and came crashing down on the subdivision and neighbouring houseboat operation. Late Tuesday afternoon, the Columbia Shuswap Regional District’s Shuswap Emergency Program rescinded the mandatory evacuation order for parts of Two Mile, including properties on the south side of Cartier Road, Graham

Road and Montcalm Crescent, Tecumseh Road, Wolfe Road and Sicamous Creek Frontage Road. Earlier Tuesday, the mandatory evacuation order was rescinded for Swansea Point, which was hit with a similar debris flow from Hummingbird Creek. Both areas were still on evacuation alert at press time.

Continued from front With Highway 97A by the Two Mile bridge still in a state of disrepair, affected residents were able to return to their properties from the south through Grindrod. The removal of the evacuation orders followed aerial assessments by helicopter. “Up until yesterday… we didn’t know what the snowpack was like up there, we didn’t know if there were still blockages and lakes up there and stuff going to come down,” said Sicamous Mayor Darrell Trouton. “But we didn’t see any of that, none… So that was the turn of the century here because we can handle it from here. As long as our lake levels don’t go above where they are, we’re good. We can survive.” Residents of Swansea Point and Two Mile were evacuated Saturday and Sunday after Hummingbird and Sicamous Creeks turned into rampant debris flows, breaching their banks, rolling across Highway 97A and through the neighbouring communities. Approximately 250 people were evacuated from Swansea Point and 80 from 2 Mile. Another 100 to 120 were houseboaters who lost their vehicles in the Two Mile debris flow and have been unable to get home. “They went to the evacuation centre because their vehicles were gone. The highways are closed to their homes… so what do we do with them? We have to put them up. They have nothing,” said Sicamous Mayor Darrell Trouton. As of Monday, residents of the Sicamous Sands residents subdivision were also issued an evacuation alert. Water from the Eagle River had breached its banks, while lake water was seeping over sandbags in front of properties along the foreshore, and behind

Regarding those areas of Two Mile still under an evacuation order, Trouton says emergency crews continue to examine the situation. “There are homes that are undermined; the emergency crews have to go in there and

take a moment to reflect on the vast humanitarian effort he’s seen throughout the community, from SPCA volunteers caring for people’s pets, to those volunteers who have been stuffing and stacking sandbags for others in need. “People are doing everything they can and we just appreciate it.

But they’re working 24/7 right now to make that happen.” Road crews have also been busy beginning to restore the damage done to the highway and the Two Mile bridge. With the sun in the sky Wednesday, the creeks receding and Shuswap and Mara lakes having peaked, Trouton was able to

Lundquist meanwhile says there may be one more upper-level low pressure system bringing a storm similar to the one that dumped so much rain last weekend, but it won’t arrive until next week or the one after. And with the more seasonal southwesterly flow, there could be thunderstorms, bringing with them wind gusts of up to 60 km/h.

OPINION Oliver lifts the curtain on closed meetings It isn’t often that you hear of a government body taking action to bring concealed information into the public eye. But one municipal government in the South Okanagan is doing exactly that. Oliver council has brought forward a policy that calls for a quarterly review of in-camera minutes, and the subsequent release of any resolutions adopted at those meetings that can be brought into the light of day. Oliver Mayor Ron Hovanes pointed to matters such as the conclusion of the sale of municipal property, when “it’s time to make those types of things public if they can be made public.” And Oliver’s move toward transparency is part of a growing trend, according to the executive director of the B.C. Freedom of Information and Privacy Society. “As a society, we should be looking at having everything available unless there’s a very good reason not to,” said Vincent Gogolek. And that trend could be making its way northward in the valley, as Penticton Mayor Dan Ashton plans to have the item added to the next council agenda. We can only hope that Ashton’s colleagues around the council table will embrace the opportunity, and the trend towards more open and transparent government continues to take hold around the province and across the country. There is no doubt that shedding light on previously closed-door meetings carries a degree of political risk. The inner workings of government are seldom pretty, and it would be easy to bow to the temptation to keep the public in the dark on matters that don’t show council in the best light. But the strength of democracy has never been that it’s the easiest form of government. Its strength lies in the power of an informed public. And it’s actions like those of Oliver council that ensure democracy lives up to its potential. - Penticton Western News

Kids in need of a fishing spot When I was a kid, fishing was fun - plain simple fun - a way to while away the idyllic summers of my youth. I truly enjoyed those now long ago summer days, sitting beside a creek or at the end of a dock, casting a line to any unwary fish. If you’ve never experienced the simple pleasure of wasting a summer’s afternoon casting a fishing line, it’s hard to understand. If you have, it’s hard to put into words. One thing for sure though, catching fish is but a small part of what fishing is all about. Fishing was more about being outside in the fresh air, watching dragonflies buzzing in and out among the reeds and listening to birds singing in the bushes along the shore. It still is about sitting back and feeling the warmth of a summer afternoon’s sun on your face. Which indirectly brings me to the recent closure of the kid’s fishery on McGuire Lake. The idea of stocking trout into McGuire Lake was to provide young people with an opportunity to experience

THE GREAT OUTDOORS James Murray fishing. Plain and simple. It’s just that it didn’t turn out to be all that simple. There was the whole business of some kids catching/harming the resident painted turtles. A number of people who were concerned about the turtles spoke up, an attempt was made to fix the situation and the wharf, which had been constructed for kids to fish from, was extended further out into the lake in hopes that distance would separate the anglers from the turtles. This, however, did not work and so the fishery has been closed. So be it. McGuire Lake has long been considered by many to be a nice little place where people can go to enjoy a bit of peace and quiet. On more

than one occasion, I have enjoyed just sitting there, squandering away an idyllic summer afternoon of my middle age. I must also say here that I have no problem with the kid’s fishery coming to an end. While I’ve always thought it was a good opportunity to introduce kids to fishing, I also believe that any program for young people should emphasize respect for nature. (And no, I’m not going to get into the whole catching fish versus respect thing. I’ve already tried to offer my perspective.) What I do know is that for as long as there have been kids in Salmon Arm and turtles in McGuire Lake, there has been contact between the two. While some have dived into the lake to catch turtles, others have picked them up along the shoreline to admire them up close. It wasn’t all that surprising that some kids would try to catch turtles with their rods. While not surprising, it was definitely not a good thing. First of all it is harmful, if not terminal, for the turtles, and secondly, turtles

are covered with bacteria, Salmonella in particular, which can make one quite ill. I don’t think it’s as much a ‘one group winning and another group losing’ thing in regards to closing the kids fishery on McGuire Lake. I think it’s more of an idea tried that didn’t work out. So what now? Perhaps another site, like down on the end of the wharf at Marine Park. There is ample room and plenty of coarse fish to be caught. I know the perfect spot to put the McGuire dock where, as far as I know, there’s not that many turtles. In 16 years of having a kid’s fishing derby down there, I do not know of one turtle that has ever been caught – and that was with hundreds of kids fishing. The idea of providing young people with an opportunity to experience fishing is still a good one. McGuire Lake was simply the wrong spot. I’d still like to see some place though where young kids could squander the idyllic summers of their youth.

Premier doesn’t want ‘to get in way’ of flood rescue efforts D By Wade Paterson BLACK PRESS

Although Premier Christy Clark was only a two-hour drive away from flood-ravaged Sicamous Tuesday, she said she doesn’t plan on visiting the area in the near future. “I don’t want to get in the way of any of the efforts of people that are working out there to protect communities,” said Clark. “I will help in any way that I can, and I think probably the best

way that we can help right now is to provide support, to make sure our staff that are there are doing what they’re trained to do and monitoring this on a daily basis.” Clark appeared at the West Kelowna Fire Hall Tuesday to announce West Kelowna’s partnership in the province’s smoke alarm campaign. When the floor was opened up to the media, the conversation quickly changed gears to the flood situation. “We’ve got a million

sandbags out there across the province right now—we are working overtime,” said Clark. “We’re monitoring it closely and we are going to provide, through our disaster assistance program, support for people whose primary homes have been affected.” The premier added that the province has spent nearly $125 million over the last 10 years to deal with flooding. Clark credited the BC Government and Ser-

vice Employees’ Union with continuing to work despite wage negotiations breaking down last week. “They’ve said that even though they may be in a position to deliver us with strike notice and maybe even go on strike while this flood threat continues, they will not withdraw any support for communities that are under threat of flood. “It’s a great sign of good faith in all the people that serve us in government.”

r. Gene Tymkiw and staff would like to welcome Dr. Eric Van Bergeyk to join their dental practice at Montebello Place. Dr. Van Bergeyk is a recent graduate from UBC dentistry, and now returns to Salmon Arm to begin this exciting profession. Eric has 3 wonderful children and is happy to be back home with them. Eric earned a B.Sc. degree in biopsychology from UBC-Okanagan (2008) and a Doctor of Dental Mediciene (DMD) degree from UBC-Vancouver (2012). Eric is eager to meet many new people, and is excited to live and serve as a dentist in the beautiful community of Salmon Arm. Dr. Van Bergeyk begins his practise, in general dentistry, this July and is accepting new patients.

# Blind Bay Road at Marine Drive was flooded preventing drivers from using the lakefront road.

Worries rise with water By Cavelle Layes MARKET NEWS STAFF

Blind Bay residents were worried, but hoping the sun will soon begin to shine. As water levels continued to rise, locals were building up their sandbag barriers in the hope that they would be able to protect their houses from any further harm. Graham Clarke, a Blind Bay resident, admits that though he had been sandbagging for a week, he wasn’t worried until last Saturday. It was at this time that the water level began to rapidly rise. “The lake is now located under my house,” he said. Clarke noted that on Monday the water was about 18 inches below the floorboards in his house. With Tuesday’s windstorm, Clarke was outside at 3 a.m. checking to make sure all his sandbags remained intact and that the waves were not getting over. “This morning it looked like the water was starting to go down,” said Clarke on Wednesday. No evacuations have been noted in the area at this point, but Clarke says if that happens, he and his family, will leave the premises. Lorraine Seys, owner of the Shuswap Marina, says she has never seen anything like it.

SO EXCITING ESCAPES Tulalip Tulalip Silver Reef Silver Reef Coeur D’Alene Coeur D’Alene Wendover Reno Swinomish Tulalip & King Tut Laughlin Octoberfest Clearwater Black Friday Shopping Tulalip Resort

According to Seys, business has been dramatically impacted. “We aren’t officially closed, I mean, we are here, but no one is really looking to go boating right now.” Seys also warned that if water levels got any higher, many of the boats docked in their marina would be at risk. Residents who have boats docked in the water are also advised to take proper precautions. Strong wave activity can cause rapid and severe erosion to docks, and boats can easily be washed out into the lake. The public is still being advised by the Shuswap Emergency Program to stay off the water unless it is an emergency situation. Debris both floating on top and below the water surface poses a serious threat to boaters, and the increased water levels may cause damage to existing docks. Blind Bay Road will remain closed from Centennial Drive to Marine Way until the water level goes down, as it is not passable by vehicle at press time. Residents can still access the Trans-Canada Highway through Balmoral Road, Centennial Drive and Cedar Drive. See Residents on page 9

Shuswap Fire Chief Wayne Morrison says 21 firefighters responded to the call that came in around 11:30 a.m. He says the fire was fully involved when crews arrived on scene, where they remained for four hours.

Residents continue to help each other out Continued from pg 8 The Shuswap Emergency Program is advising people to drive slowly on the water and on water-filled roads as well. The Emergency Operation Centre located in Salmon Arm has had reports of boaters creating wakes which are

breaching protective barriers. Blind Bay residents who normally get their mail from the post boxes located on Blind Bay Road are being diverted to the Blind Bay Post Office, located in the Blind Bay Village Grocer until further notice. Jason Adair was in Blind Bay for the weekend, and couldn’t be-

lieve how much community members came together to help one another. “People were just showing up to help us out. It was amazing, we didn’t ask anyone – they just did it.” Adair and his family decided to pay forward the generosity and spent Monday going up and down the roads

with lakeside homes, helping wherever they could. “It is amazing how disasters can bring people together.” says Adair. More information can be obtained by calling the Shuswap Emergency Program at 250833-3350 or on their website at www.sepadvisory.com

Parade cancelled, celebration goes on The rain hasn’t dampened the patriotism of the Shuswap as the Canada Day celebration continues as planned – almost. Everything except the annual Canada Day Parade in Blind Bay is still on the slate. The parade had to be cancelled due to the flooding that forced the

closure of Blind Bay Road. But proud South Shuswap Canadians will enjoy all the other activities they have come to expect at annual Canada Day celebrations. The daylong event will begin with a pancake breakfast at 8 a.m. and continue with

a day filled with jugglers, zumba, First Nations dances, performances by Stan Foster, the Blind Bay Blues Brothers, Rough Pearl, Matt St. John and many others. Children are invited to take part in the many games and activities that have been scheduled throughout the

day including bouncy castles, a basketball throw, face-painting, horseshoes, a fish pond and a water gun target, among others. A number of food vendors will be on site. Celebrations will finish with a clourful fireworks display at 10:30 p.m.

Teacher’s deal does not address extra-curricular By Richard Rolke BLACK PRESS

Even if teachers accept a new contract, it doesn’t mean extracurricular activities will resume. Lynda Bennett, North Okanagan-Shuswap Teachers Association president, isn’t sure if teachers will start volunteering for team sports and clubs if a tentative agreement with the province is ratified Friday. “If it were me, I’d be questioning how much time I’d be volunteering because of a district and ministry that doesn’t support teach-

ers and doesn’t provide resources to support teachers,” she said. Most teachers withdrew from extra-curricular activities in March after government legislation forced an end to a labour dispute that had started last fall. The B.C. Teachers Federation is asking its members to ratify the tentative agreement. “We did want a negotiated settlement, which this is,” said Bennett. “The other side, though, is if we don’t accept it, the government will likely legislate a contract and take huge chunks out of the

Salmon Arm Aces U19 Fast Pitch Girls

agreement.” The union says the agreement doesn’t address class size and composition or wages. “We have been able to achieve some modest improvements but, above all, we succeeded in getting government to take its concession demands off the table,” said Susan Lambert, BCTF president, in a release. George Abbott, education minister, says he welcomes the deal between the BCTF and the B.C. Public School Employers’ Association.

“The parties worked extremely hard and made progress on many important issues,” said Abbott, who is Shuswap MLA. “The term of the agreement runs until June 30, 2013, sets out improved language to manage leave provisions, and is consistent with government’s net zero mandate. In addition, the parties agreed to further discuss and seek mutually agreeable improvements on key policy issues to provide students with the best education possible.”

Boaters warned to obey rules By Lachlan Labere MARKET NEWS STAFF

Shuswap and Mara lakes are among local water bodies where authorities will be stepping up enforcement over the July long weekend. Partners in the Shuswap Lake Integrated Planning Process (SLIPP), including four RCMP detachments, the Conservation Office, BC Parks, the Department of Fisheries and Oceans and Transport Canada will be spearheading the enforcement effort under SLIPP, with the main focus being public safety.

“We want to see safe and sober boating practices and safety in campgrounds,” says Sgt. Josh Lockwood of the BC Conservation Office in a June 27 news release. Lockwood says the multi-agency effort will also include Mabel, Little Shuswap and Adams lakes, as well as the Shuswap River. “We’ll also be educating and promoting compliance on regulations as they pertain to fish and wildlife habitat, angling, water quality, and we’ll be checking for necessary permits and licences.” Boaters can also expect to see safety check

This will include breathalyzer testing as required. Meanwhile, in Sicamous, people using the public boat launches

may be greeted by bylaw officers warning boaters to keep the wake down and stay away from the foreshore, out of respect for those along the waterfront already having a difficult time dealing with the high water. “We’re going to

have people that say… please stay away from the shores, keep a wake down near homes and stuff like that,” says Sicamous Mayor Darrell Trouton. “Please use common sense: no wake near homes.”

Okanagan-Shuswap MP stands behind bill C-38

FROM THE HILL Colin Mayes There has been some misinformation circulating regarding Bill C-38, the Budget Implementation Act, and I would like to take this opportunity to clarify details on the matter. Our government is still committed to maintaining the same rigorous environmental protection that Canadians expect. At the same time, Bill C-38 will streamline regulatory reviews for major projects and provide clear advantages for the Canadian economy. Eliminating duplication and

overlap and setting a specified and generous period of two years for completing the necessary assessments, will allow further stimulation of the economy, as well as creating more jobs. What is important to keep in mind here is that we are working on efficiency and that longer assessments do not equate to better assessments. The current Fisheries Act goes well beyond its conservation goals and is in much need of a facelift. Bill C-38 will strengthen fisheries management in several ways by protecting Canada’s fisheries and the habitat that supports them and will make better use of departmental resources by aligning them to commercial, recreational and aboriginal fisheries. It is also worth mentioning that

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

there will be no reduction in terms of DFO’s mandate to preserve and protect B.C. fisheries, especially coastal salmon fisheries and the spawning and nursery streams that support these fisheries. Further to this, a particularly dated element in the current Fisheries Act is how all activities – from the largest industrial development to the smallest personal project on private land – are treated in the same manner. Bill C-38 will make the necessary distinction between the size and scale of the projects. We will create guidelines and standards in regulation to make clear what can and can not be done when working in and around water for smaller projects, all the while maintaining the full review process for larger projects.

Finally, by focusing on the bigger picture, our government can better protect migratory streams and lakes which are home to Canada’s fisheries and their supporting areas. Enhanced protection will also be provided to ecologically sensitive areas; conditions associated with Fisheries Act authorizations will now be enforced and we’re cracking down on those that break the rules by aligning penalties with that of the tougher Environmental Enforcement Act. All the while your government will continue to maintain existing regulations which protect waterways from pollution. I want to ensure all my constituents that this bill is only meant to streamline and simplify current services and/or regulations.

Golden age of the coffee house volunteers emerged to help Linda with all the work needed to produce coffee houses. The last event, a reggae band at Gleneden Hall in the early summer, was a huge success and a fun way to end the Shuswap Coffee House era.

SHUSWAP PASSION Jim Cooperman It was the golden age for the Shuswap Coffee House, as Observer arts reporter Marg Shand noted in her March, 1980 review of a Stringband concert, “Salmon Arm is gaining a reputation as a folk music centre.” Volunteer directors that included myself as president, Jake Jacobson as treasurer, Dale Bush as vicepresident and Linda Tanaka as publicity director sponsored 17 events that year. In the late fall, there was a major, as the Shuswap Theatre purchased its current venue, a former auto repair shop. In October, we held the final event in Tappen, dubbed “The Last Tango in Tappen,” that featured singer-songwriter extraordinaire, Dan Rubin, who played a variety of instruments including the piano, guitar, violin, and bouzouki. Also in 1980, the Shuswap Coffee House linked up with the Northern Music Circuit, a new society that sponsored travelling musicians and provided opportunities for them to play at venues throughout the province. In October, Doug Rawn attended a circuit meeting and coffee house workshop in Quesnel as our representative. In his report he explained how

# Sukay, a group from the Andes region of South America, performed at a 1981 coffee house concert at JL Jackson. our society was considered a “model” within the new circuit of 12 Interior coffee houses, due largely to our many volunteers and to our very appreciative audiences. The circuit meeting provided plans for talent contests in 1981, with local winners going to Quesnel to audition for a spot at the Vancouver Folk Festival. With the loss of the Tappen theatre, the Shuswap Coffee House carried on at a variety of venues, including the new theatre, the youth centre, the Gleneden Hall, other smaller community halls and even at the Shuswap Motor Hotel lounge. In December 1980, coffee house organizers held a benefit at the Gleneden Hall to raise funds for the renovation of the new theatre building. The talent contest was held in March 1981 and there were three judges, Ron Anderson from Big K Records, Gerry Irving from CKXR radio and Marg Shand from the Observer. Out of some stiff competition from a number of local artists, they chose two winners, the duo of Dave Allan and Jude Lee (Bastien) and Deb-

orah Klein. In Quesnel, Klein managed to place second, just missing the opportunity to play in Vancouver. In addition to doing the publicity, Linda Tanaka took over the task of booking the performers in 1981. It was a remarkable year that included some fabulous shows, such as the sold-out, Barde concert at the JL Jackson school auditorium with over 300 in attendance, the Tannahill Weavers (who played in the Vernon Recreation Centre), Ian Tambyln, Dougie McClean, comic singer Mike Absalom, and the scintillating music of the Andes group, Sukay. Early in 1981, it became apparent that there was a need for a piano for both the theatre and for the coffee house. A quality, used upright piano was purchased and a unique fundraising scheme was set up to pay for it. Each of the 88 piano keys were symbolically purchased for $20 by many generous individuals, businesses and organizations, including the Kinsman, CKXR, the credit union, the arts council and the legion. The piano is still in tune and still in use

at Shuswap Theatre, where it continues to be used for plays and other events. And as such, is one of the enduring legacies of the Shuswap Coffee House days. By 1982, some of the enthusiasm and volunteer energy for the coffee house began to wane. A line of credit allowed the group to continue until the arts council provided a grant to help balance the books. The May newsletter announced a number of popular groups that were returning, including Stringband and Pied Pear (for their fourth engagement). In June, when a Celtic band from Kelowna played at the legion hall, the turnout was low and that was the beginning of the end for the coffee house. As the audience numbers dwindled, so did the number of events. In January 1983, Armstrong musician, Roman Royko, performed before a small, but appreciative audience at Shuswap Theatre. As my time became needed more back at Lee Creek, where I was completing the construction of our log home, no other

Dog control Columbia Shuswap Regional District could be putting the collar on unruly Falkland dogs. At the June 21 board meeting, directors voted in favour of spending $5,000 on public consultation and an assent process to determine community support for dog control in Falkland and outlying areas. “I have had a lot of complaints over the years, especially in the last six months,” says Area D director René Talbot, who points

out the concerns about barking, dogs at large and intimidating dogs came up during campaigning in last November’s election. “They asked if we were elected or re-elected, if we would look at dog control and I said yes,” Talbot says. “I made a promise that I would, and that’s why we’re having a meeting, to get a feel for it and move on from there.” All residents within the proposed area will receive a letter in the mail inviting them to a community meeting at 7 p.m., Wednesday, July 25 at the Falkland Community Hall. Dog control service is currently provided in Ranchero and Electoral Area C South Shuswap only. Should the service be implemented, the estimated annual cost per household would be $14.17.

3. Add an External Filter in the Cooler Line — While the filter inside the transmission usually does a good job of removing dirt and particles from the fluid, an extra filter in the cooler line is a great way to make sure of removing all the abrasive particles that can damage your car’s transmission. 2560 Trans Canada Hwy.

2. Have the Transmission Serviced Regularly — Regular fluid and filter changes can add years onto your transmission’s life. In fact, it’s probably the most cost effective maintenance procedure available.

CHASE Lake infringes on park By Cavelle Layes MARKET NEWS STAFF

Chase does not appear to be in any immediate danger of a flood, but residents are being advised to boil their water and stay away from the lake. Larry Randle, corporate officer and emergency liaison for the Village of Chase, has been on scene surveying the situation at various times over the last few days. Water levels peaked on Wednesday, according to the BC River Forecast Centre. Although other towns in the region have faced flooding, the Village of Chase does not appear to be in danger. “At this point we are not advising any major precautions,” Randle said mid-week. He explained that Arbutus and Lakeshore are the only streets where houses have been impacted. “We have made both sand and sandbags available to the public.” Randle said sandbags can be picked up at the village yard, while sand is located at the Sunshore Golf Course. In some cases, sand is being delivered to residents. All sand and sandbags are free of charge to those who need them. Boat launches had been closed down as of press time, and Randle warned that anyone that ignores the tapes,

road blocks or signs may face penalties. “High water areas may contain debris and submerged objects that are not visible, putting boaters at risk,” says a press release from the Ministry of Justice and Attorney General. “Docks and loading areas may be damaged or destroyed and should not be relied on for safe use. Boaters are reminded to reduce speed to 10 km/h within 30 metres (100 feet) from the shore. Flooded shorelines are extremely vulnerable to damage from boat wake and prop wash. Strong wake activity striking the banks can cause rapid and severe erosion and damage to dikes and retaining walls. Wake impact can also churn up sediments, degrading the aquatic environment and endangering its residents.” A water quality advisory was issued in the area Tuesday. The advisory stated, “Due to the current flood warning by the BC Rivers Forecast Centre of the South Thompson River and Shuswap Lake, turbidity levels have risen, along with contamination loading of our source water.” It notes that an advisory is typically released whenever turbidity levels rise above one, however, the levels Tuesday were reported at 2.2. While the water was not deemed an extreme

Water compromised Continued from pg. 22 chlorine becomes more difficult. Increased turbidity also increases the potential of Giardia and Cryptosporidia to be present in the water. If afflicted by waterborne disease, preschool children and the elderly may be at greater risk of complications such as dehydration,” states the report. Since the weekend there have been a number of instances in Chase where the water has had an odd egg-like smell, and Monday it began to get a cloudy tinge. The water quality advisory will most likely remain in affect until after the flooding has run its course. However, it will be monitored daily and actions will be taken accordingly. The public is being advised to boil water for one minute before drinking, cooking, brushing teeth, washing dishes, as well as washing fruits and vegetables that are going to be eaten raw. The water can also be treated by adding two drops of household bleach per one litre warm water (double dose for cold water), shake, and allow to stand for 30 minutes before using. Chlorine or iodine tablets may also be added by following manufacturers’ instructions. Any other questions can be directed to the Village of Chase at 250-851-7340 or In-

# A boy skips rocks in the newly formed pond in the tent area of Mill Park. The park filled with water after lake levels began rising due to heavy rainfall and melting snow. terior Health, Public Health Protection at 250-851-7340. Despite the Chase wharf being closed down by the village, a number of people have been ignoring the yellow tape and making their way down the water-engulfed walkway to the temporary dock. “This is not OK,” says Randle. “The Village of Chase staff may not wrestle them down to the ground, but I am sure the RCMP would have something to say about it. It is dangerous, the tape is there for a reason. The wharf is scheduled to be replaced anyway, it is rotting, and the water is not helping the matter.” Mill Park has also

been impacted by the sudden increase in water levels. Along with the boat launch being closed to the public, the tent area of the campground has also been turned into an extension of the lake itself. RV campers now have lakeside views directly in front of the campsites. Randle explains, “We are monitoring the situation carefully, there is currently no need for emergency. The water is currently calm but high.” The village is advising people to stay away from the water as the combination of rising levels, hidden debris and fast-moving currents make both the lake and creek a high danger zone.

Village to consider crosswalk In response to a petition from Chase parents requesting upgrades to Cottonwood Street in the form of crosswalks and line painting, Chase council reviewed plans and options at its June 26 meeting. The village has planned improvements for the fall, with details still in the works, including a sidewalk.

Village of Chase

Existing crosswalks were recently painted and will be painted in the fall. Additional crosswalks will require investigation pertaining to residential parking requirements across the road from the school, as well as school bus parking. Village administrator Joni Henirichs noted: “A call to the

village with concerns is all that is required in a case like this. No need to start a petition; we’re here to help.” Public works supervisor Pat Regush added that, “attention to safety for our school children supercedes any budget concerns.” The request for a crosswalk has been sent to Village of Chase staff for review.

If adopted, these bylaws, along with a new Lease Agreement for the lands, will take the place of Bylaw No. 585, 1999. Elector approval for Bylaw 585, 1999 was obtained in 1999 by way of a referendum (now called other voting). Bylaw 585, 1999 leased a parcel of land to the Chase and District Recreation Society for the construction and operation of an arena, guaranteed the repayment of the then $1.4 million loan in increments of up to $132,000 paid annually to the Society, authorized an annual grant of assistance of up to $75,000 annually for operational expenditures, and provided a tax exemption for the arena land. Bylaw No. 771, 2011, Bylaw No. 772, 2011, the Lease Agreement with the Society, and a separate Tax Exemption Bylaw are all intended as a package to replace Bylaw No. 585, 1999. Only Bylaws No. 771 and 772 require elector approval to proceed to adoption. ALTERNATIVE APPROVAL PROCESS AND ELIGIBILITY Pursuant to Section 86 of the Community Charter, Village Council may adopt both Art Holding Memorial Arena Loan Authorization Bylaw No. 771, 2011and Art Holding Memorial Arena Partnering Agreement Bylaw No. 772, 2011 unless at least 10% (223) of the electors of the Village of Chase, of which there are 2237 according to Elections BC and as determined by Council, indicate they are opposed to the adoption of these bylaws by submitting a signed Elector Response Form to the Village Office no later than 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, August 7, 2012. Elector Response Forms must be in the form established by Council, and only those persons who qualify as electors of the Village of Chase are entitled to sign. Electors may qualify as either resident electors or as non-resident property electors as follows: Resident Elector – you are entitled to submit an elector response form as a resident elector if you are 18 years of age or older on the date of submission, are a Canadian citizen, have lived in BC for at least six months, have been a resident of the Village of Chase for at least 30 days prior to submitting your elector response form, and are not disqualified by the Local Government Act or any other enactment from voting in an election or are not otherwise disqualified by law. Non-Resident Property Elector – You are entitled to submit an elector response form as a non-resident property elector if you are 18 years of age or older on the date of submission, are a Canadian citizen, have lived in BC for at least six months, have owned and held registered title to a property in the Village of Chase for the past 30 days or more, and do not qualify as a resident elector. NOTE: Only one non-resident property elector may submit a response form per property, regardless of how many owners there may be. If less than 10% (223) of the electors submit an Elector Response Form, the bylaws will be deemed to have the approval of the electors and the Council may proceed to adopt the bylaws. The Elector Response Forms include the following statement: “I am opposed to the Village of Chase continuing its guarantee of the repayments of the principal and interest of the loan ($724,676.13) which was obtained by the Chase and District Recreation Society in order to fund the capital costs of the initial construction and development of the Art Holding Memorial Arena, at an annual amount of up to $132,000, and I am opposed to the Village of Chase continuing its annual grant of up to $75,000 to the Chase and District Recreation Society for the purpose of meeting the Society’s obligations to operate the Recreation Centre and provide Recreation Services.” A copy of the bylaws and Elector Response Forms are available from the Village of Chase Office located at 826 Okanagan Avenue, Chase, BC. For additional information please contact Larry Randle, Corporate Officer or Joni Heinrich, Chief Administrative Officer at 250.679.3238. Note: Completed elector response forms must be returned to the Village of Chase Office at 826 Okanagan Avenue, Chase BC, V0E 1M0, on or before Tuesday, August 7, 2012, at 4:30 p.m. Completed forms may be submitted in person, faxed to 250.679.3070, or may be mailed to the Village of Chase, PO Box 440, Chase, BC, V0E 1M0 and must be received in the Village office by the deadline.

Chickens in Chase? The Village of Chase is formally accepting feedback on the topic of keeping laying hens in the backyard. Other communities such as Salmon Arm are hen friendly, with no apparent complications, so the question is out there for discussion in Chase.

Female birds only would be allowed as roosters can be just a little too cocky – they are considered noise pollution to some, especially in the wee hours. Along with producing fresh eggs, hen manure can provide fertilizer for the lawn.

#Village of Chase is asking the question of citizens on whether chickens should be allowed in the backyards of residences.

Activities for youth needed It’s official, school is out for summer, despite what the weather has in store. No need to worry about keeping entertained or constructively engaged; in Chase there’s lots going on. According to my own ‘way-back machine,’ youthful summer vacation was a time of freedom from schedules, between babysitting jobs and chores at home that is. Aside from honing leadership skills, I earned enough money to buy my own choice of return-to-school wardrobe. The Village of Chase has received several presentations from groups with ideas for youth in the area, a Youth Action Commit-

VILLAGE VOICE Lynda Hooper tee chosen to focus specifically on the needs of adolescents and young adults. At a meeting June 19 at the Chase Fire Hall, Village of Chase Councillors Steve Scott and Rick Berrigan co-hosted with Fire Chief Brent Chamberlain, joined by quite a list of concerned parties supporting youth activity. Adams Lake Indian

Band, Neskonlith Indian Band, Citizens on Patrol, PAC, and others contributed ideas, taking away actions toward increased opportunity in programs for youth. There are committees working on a skateboard park project, beach volleyball court, tennis and basketball courts at the school grounds. Programs for fine arts are in the works nearby for those youth more inclined toward music, drama or art. Learning new card games, playing chess, or jamming with friends at the beach or refreshing math skills is no problem. It’s funny how one guitar evolves into a jam in no time.

Teens can read a book, write a book, a poem, or a short story, sketch a portrait or paint a landscape, or do something whimsically imaginative. You can mow the lawn, maintain a garden, do some errands and good deeds. Learn to cook a new recipe, to knit or other traditional craft. Run, walk, or swim, play beach volleyball or skateboard and cycle — stay active in mind, body and soul. I can’t imagine how anyone could be bored in this life, even without a digital device in hand. Have fun, enjoy this time away from the regular routine because

school will be back in session before we know it.

Barrel racing set for Friday bines the horse’s athletic ability and the horsemanship skills of a rider in order to safely and successfully maneuver a horse through a clover-leaf pattern around three barrels (typically three fifty-five gallon metal or plastic drums) placed in a triangle in the center of an arena. In timed rodeo events, the purpose is to make a run as fast as possible, while the time is being clocked either by an electronic eye, (a device using a laser system to record times), or by an arena attendant or judge who manually takes the time using a keen eye and a flag to let a clocker know when to hit the timer stop; though this last method is more commonly seen in local and non-professional events. The timer begins when horse and rider cross the start line and ends when the bar-

Automotive

rel pattern has been successfully executed and horse and rider cross the finish line. The rider’s time depends on several factors, most commonly the horse’s physical and mental condition, the rider’s horsemanship abilities, and the type of ground or footing (the quality, depth, content, etc. of the sand or dirt in the arena.) The BC Barrel Racers Association sanctions races across B.C., as well as Washington, Oregon, and Arizona, with hopes to sanction races in Alberta in the near future. The two largest races each season are in the spring with the finals held in the fall. At each of these races over 750 runs are expected to be held. The two main races will be held in Chilliwack this year, drawing competitors from across Western Canada and Northwestern USA.

Chase has a ranching history, with horses used to this day for rounding up stock. When not working, some cutting horses are entered into competition with their riders. One event is barrel racing. On June 29 from 6:30 to 9 p.m. at the arena on VLA Road, a local barrel racing event will take place. There will be worldclass teams of horse and rider competing in a BC Rodeo Association-sanctioned race. Barrel racing is a speed horse event in which a horse and rider attempt to complete a clover-leaf pattern around preset barrels in the fastest time. Though both boys and girls compete at the youth level and men compete in some amateur venues, in collegiate and professional ranks, it is primarily an event for women. It com-

ALMA ADELINE KING Jan. 1, 1922 - June 17, 2012 It’s hard to believe our mother and grandmother has passed on. Alma Adeline King (nee Holland) has joined her husband, Orville King, her parents, Daniel & Pauline Holland and her siblings, Hilda (Baltakis), Irene (Folland), Leonard, Arnold, & Richard Holland. She was a New Year’s baby, born Jan. 1/1922. Every trip to Mabel Lake revealed another story from her childhood. They were homesteaders, not strangers to hard work and living off the land. Life was difficult, but they knew how to make the most of it and Alma in her strength and stoic nature offered this to family and friends. She was an amazing self taught seamstress. Her grand children were blessed with clothes she made, from pajamas to prom gowns. Her green house produced trays of plants for all of us. Her knitting kept us warm and a visit from Grandma included bags of homemade perogies and baking. She combed through flyers and knew a good deal. When sugar, flour and soup were on sale, we’d receive it on our next visit. Her children, Jim King and Margaret Bloor-King and her grand children, Mandy King, Jason King, Susan Bloor and Melanie Pinet were blessed with the generosity, love and support of this wonderful woman. She had the ability to put out abundant amounts of good food in a short time, from cooking at Ferguson’s Sawmill at Sugar Lake, to helping with Meals to Wheels and beating up pancake batter for OAP Pancake breakfasts. She was awarded a Life Membership in the British Columbia Old Age Pensioner’s Organization, Lumby branch, for her loyal, dedicated and devoted services. Alma always loved playing crib and met her match playing with her friend, Pat Mackie. They kept a tally of games and shared in a lot of laughs. We celebrated her ninetieth birthday at Eagle Valley Lodge in Sicamous, her home for the last year of her life. She had hopes to make it to 100 but an infection hospitalized her and complications were too great to overcome. The family would like to thank Dr. Beever, Dr. Lourens, staff at Bastion Place, Salmon Arm and the Eagle Valley Housing Society of Sicamous for helping us care for our mom. As requested by Alma, there won’t be a service. Arrangements entrusted to FISCHER’S FUNERAL SERVICES & CREMATORIUM LTD., Salmon Arm (250) 833-1129.

STUART, VIVIAN VALENTINE Feb. 14, 1917 - June 20, 2012 Vivian passed away June 20, 2012 at the age of 95. She was born Vivian Valentine Steen on February 14, 1917 at Lignite, North Dakota. She was adopted at the age of 3 by Richard Earl Foster and Lena Mae Foster and raised in Carmangay, Claresholm and Calgary, Alberta. In 1950 Vivian married Ralph Stuart of Calgary where they lived until 1976. After Ralphs’ death in 1977, Vivian lived in Seymour Arm BC moving to Salmon Arm in 1994. Vivian is survived by her daughter Nancy (Allan), grandchildren Cassie and Derek and her son Earl, and good friend Amy Sauter. She was predeceased by three natural brothers, Don, Allan and Bernard Steen. A graveside service will be held at a later date. If desired donations in remembrance may be made to the Shuswap Hospital Foundation, Box 265, Salmon Arm, BC, V1E 4N3.

STEPHENS, ALLAN CRAIG December 1, 1953 - June 10, 2012 It is with sad hearts that we announce the passing of our brother (in many ways) Allan Craig Stephens on June 10, 2012. Allan had a long and difficult battle with cancer and yet he managed to stare down the disease, laugh at himself and take joy in whatever he was able to do until the battle became too great. He passed peacefully at his sister’s home in Kamloops, with family and friends flowing in and out stopping for a visit. Allan was born in Saskatchewan to Gerald and Lorraine Stephens (both deceased) but was raised by his maternal grandmother (Gladys Hammond, deceased) who still had much love to give her grandchildren who included Lois Stirmlinger (nee Hammond). Allan grew up surrounded by a large and very close immediate and extended family. Allan enlisted in the Royal Canadian Air Force at the age of 21 and served in the forces for 20 years. He felt a sense of accomplishment through the trade of Avionics Systems Technician and he enjoyed the traveling afforded him in the forces. Allan retired from the forces with the rank of Warrant Officer. He travelled throughout BC and enjoyed his family and friends. Allan continued in civilian life applying his trade in Kelowna for a time. Allan said he had one regret that he did not travel more after his retirement from the Forces. Projects such as building a new home or renewing an old one was a passion of Allan’s as was a good garage sale or a time spent with friends at the casino. But what he loved the most was being surrounded by good friends and family; meeting potential new friends; sharing a little Jack; the sunshine and little furry friends too. Allan will be missed most of all for his quick wit and sometimes slightly off, good humour. There was not a phrase or song he could not turn into a laugh. Allan is survived by his adopted sister Lois (Walter) Stirmlinger; brothers Dean (Carol) and Wayne (Bonnie) Stephens; sister Debbie (Dale) Clark; cousins Hope LaRocque (Dennis); Aunties Joyce Wilcox; Roberta Hospederic; Edith (Len) Cowie; Trudy (Kerry) Miller; Uncle Albert (Gladys) Wymer and numerous other cousins, nieces, nephews, great nieces and great nephews. He will be missed by all of his family, friends and acquaintances be they human or furry. A Celebration of Allan’s Life will be held at brother Wayne’s in Kamloops Saturday, June 23rd. Allan’s ashes will be laid to rest in Quesnel on July 21, 2012 at 1:30 p.m. at the Quesnel Municipal Cemetery on Quesnel-Hixon Road, where he will join his Mom and dad, brother, cousins and uncle who have preceded him. The family would like to send a special thank you to Hope LaRocque (Dennis) who shared their home and cared for Allan for years and to Wayne (Bonnie) Stephens who did the same and took care of Allan’s mechanical needs. We would also like to thank Dr. Proctor and the staff at the Kamloops Cancer Centre; the Community Care Nurses and Home Support; Hospice Volunteers; the Canadian Red Cross; Veteran Affairs, Dr. Farrell and his staff; Schoening Funeral Home who all helped Allan “Do It His Way” and allowed him to do it with dignity. We Love you Allan and we will Miss YOU! Condolences may be expressed at www. schoenings.com

IONE KEMPTON Ione left us suddenly but peacefully, surrounded by family on June 22, 2012 at the age of 83. Healthy, happy and full of vitality to the end, she loved life and lived it well. We now say goodbye to a special woman who touched many lives along her way. Ione was born on a farm in Saskatchewan in 1929 to George and Margaret Wheeler and when she was two her family moved by wagon train farther north during the Depression. They returned to the south and settled to farm in Macoun, near Weyburn, with her sister Helen and brothers Gerald and Duane. Ione had small town values, but city-sized dreams! She took nurses training and worked in the Weyburn Mental Hospital before meeting Jack Kempton. They married in Nelson, BC in 1950 then eventually landed in Calgary & raised three active girls. Ione devoted her life to her daughters for years before returning to work in retail. Friends always played a vital role in her life, too. The family spent many holidays camping and visiting family in BC, Alberta and Saskatchewan. In 1979, she and Jack moved to Salmon Arm, enjoying the small town life and closeness to Jack’s family. Gardening, skiing, trips to Mazatlan, fishing and camping with many wonderful friends and family were their passions. They moved to Sorrento in 1994, taking up tennis at Cedar Heights and a new group of friends filled their lives with joy. Ione also loved to play bridge and when Jack passed away in 2008, she joined duplicate bridge which challenged her and appealed to her competitive spirit. Ione’s life was enriched by all those she met during her various activities and walking her special little dogs at Sorrento Park. She will be missed by those she shared her life with. Ione is survived by her three daughters Cheryl (Rick) Semenzin of Sunnybrae, Deb Phillips of Calgary, and Pam (Jim) Donaldson of Notch Hill and her grandchildren Brett and Dustin Semenzin and Janelle and Wesley Phillips. She was so very proud of her grandkids! We will cherish the memories. No formal service will be held at Ione’s request but the family is planning a celebration of her life later this summer. We hope all her friends will join us. In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of BC & Yukon, 2001212 West Broadway, Vancouver, BC V6H 3V2 or BC SPCA Shuswap Branch, 5850 Auto Road SE, Salmon Arm, B.C. V1E 2X2. Email condolences may be sent to Ione’s obituary at www.bowersfuneralservices.com. Arrangements are in the care of Bowers Funeral Home and Crematorium, Salmon Arm, BC. Special thanks to the caring staff at Shuswap Lake General Hospital.

SHIRLEY MARGURETTE STEWART It is with sweet sorrow and sadness that we announce the passing in Piccadilly Care Centre of Shirley Margurette Stewart on June 20, 2012 at the age of 84 years from complications of Alzheimer’s. Shirley leaves behind to mourn her, four children, Evelyn (Bob) Turner of Sicamous, Carol (Ron) Tyssen of Salmon Arm, Douglas (June) Stewart of Salmon Arm and Donna (Brian) McMillan of Kamloops; eight grandchildren; Michelle, Shannon, Kim, Brad, James, Ashley, Melanie and Bryce; nine great-grandchildren; two sisters, Joyce (Jim) Johnson of Salmon Arm and Arlene Brown of Salmon Arm, and many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her parents Allen and Ellie Ellis, baby James Allen and husband Lloyd. Shirley was born in Victoria, British Columbia on July 15, 1927, the first of three children. At the age of 7, she and her family moved to Salmon Arm and settled in Gleneden where they felt at home with many other Finlanders. Shirley attended school in Gleneden and Salmon Arm until Grade 10 after which she took a job at the Salmon Arm Farmers Exchange next to her best friend Mamie Hill. It was during that time that she met the love of her life, Lloyd Stewart and they married in July of 1948. Together they farmed a property in the valley that is now known as the DeMille Corn Farm. This property supported the family as well as Lloyd working for NOCA Dairies. Shirley did more than her share of work on the farm and volunteered in the community in which she loved so much. As a young mother, Shirley’s life was busy with farming, raising a family and volunteering with the Valley Women’s Institute. She loved working side by side with the other ladies of the Women’s Institute and spent many hours laughing, cooking, baking and creating a close camaraderie that bonded their lives. Shirley also volunteered with many other organizations throughout her life such as the Farmers Institute, Royal Purple, Pioneer Lodge, March of Dimes, Graduation Breakfast Committees and the Breast Cancer Mammography Screening As much as Shirley was involved with volunteering, she loved entertaining family and friends in her home and she was the best hostess of all. She also embraced the many friends that were involved with her in curling, golf, Shuswap RV Camping Club, and life in general around Salmon Arm. Shirley loved family and community. Her love, laughter and giving nature will be truly missed. A funeral service will be held at Bower’s Funeral Home, June 28th@ 2pm. with Reverend Fred Duck officiating and a tribute presented by cousin Mervin Maki. The family would like to extend their heartfelt thanks to Piccadilly Care Center, especially Blackburn Lane, for their kind and compassionate care of Shirley. If so desired, contributions in memory of Shirley may be made to the Alzheimer’s Society or to the charity of your choice. Online condolences can be sent through Shirley’s obituary at www.bowersfuneralservice.com Arrangements are in the care of Bowers Funeral Home and Crematorium, Salmon Arm.

PEARL SHAW-MACLAREN On June 03, 2012, I lost my mom, Pearl Shaw-MacLaren. Mom had always been my bright guiding light, though that light dimmed when my dad Ramsay, passed away three years ago. Mom was born Margaret Prentice on July 08, 1924 in Hamilton Scotland. Her parents, Tom and Nan, immigrated to Canada in 1928 with her brothers Tom and Bob and they settled in Coldstream, where grandpa worked as an orchard foreman and sister Isobel and brother Gord were born. Mom worked in the Post Office until she was the first woman from Vernon to join the Woman’s Royal Canadian Naval Service and was stationed at Cornwallis, Nova Scotia. Mom told me many stories of her cross-Canada train trips on leave. According to an old diary entry, mom met my dad at a dance in Oyama where his parents lived and they were married on May 24, 1947. They lived in Vernon and Dad began working for BC Hydro. I (their only child, Lynne) was born in 1951. BC Hydro transferred Dad to Salmon Arm in 1956, where they made it home for the rest of their lives. A volunteer program through the Kinette Club in the late 1950’s lead to a real job at the Health Unit which lasted until 1985. Mom did everything well, great cook, excellent seamstress, gracious hostess and I still have sweaters that that mom knitted for me. I’m not sure mom loved gardening quite as much as dad but that didn’t mean mom didn’t pickle, can or freeze everything dad grew. In contrast to her basically Scottish sensibilities, mom loved to go to Reno, twice a year for over 25 years, mom went with her mom, her good friend Frankie Fraser, my dad and even I got to go with her on the last few trips. Mom took some wonderful vacations with Frankie to Nashville, Las Vegas a Panama Canal Cruise all which Frankie chronicled in albums that made you feel like you were there, too. Mom was crucial to me opening my Salon in 1981, where she was my “gofer”. Daily visits to deliver mail, fold towels, get change and sweep floors kept us “ship shape”. When it became necessary for mom and dad to leave their house, the Shuswap Lodge became their home. Mom’s love of music continued there enjoying lots of entertainment and sing-a-longs. Mom’s memory might have faded for some things but she never forgot the words to a song. I want to express my deepest-thanks to Jane, Grace and their caring staff at the Lodge for always going above and beyond. I also want to thank Dr. Venter for making the final days of both my parents as easy as possible and the wonderful nurses at Shuswap Lake General Hospital for their compassion and support. There will be no service by request. Goodbye Mom, may you dance with Dad forever, Love Lynne. Online condolences can be sent through Pearl’s obituary at www.bowersfuneralservice.com

TED BACIGALUPO July 2, 1942 - June 13, 2012 Ted was born in Berlin, Germany on July 2, 1942. Despite the difficult times, Ted had many fond memories of his life in Germany. The family moved to Canada in 1954, settling in London, Ontario. There were many youthful tales of fun and mischief Tony and Walt became his cherished lifetime friends, unaffected by time or distance. Following highschool, Ted joined the Canadian National Railway (CNR) in 1961. There he met Bonnie, his wife of 44 years and devoted friend. Ted enjoyed his work as Freight Sales Marketing Officer in Hamilton working closely with the steel industry. With the arrival of son Randall, and daughter Rochelle, the family moved to a rural acreage north of Hamilton and were joined by their youngest son, Jeremy. Intrigued by the function of local government, Ted ran for Puslinch Township Council, serving three successful terms with dedication and energy. Despite his busy schedule, Ted enjoyed the efforts of rural life; ploughing the 600’ drive with his Ferguson tractor, felling hardwood to heat the house, hosting summer gatherings, brewing maple syrup, beekeeping, and caring for an everchanging menagerie of farm critters. In 1990, Ted took early retirement from the CNR to pursue new opportunities. For one year, he served as the United Way fundraiser head for the industrial sector in Hamilton, surpassing targets despite the recession of the time. With Randy and Rochelle pursuing their careers, Ted, Bonnie and Jeremy packed their belongings into a classic Eaton’s delivery truck and headed west to the Shuswap. Returning to municipal politics in 1999, Ted represented Area ‘C’ for 13 years, first as Director and then as Chair of the Columbia Shuswap Regional District. He served on countless boards with honesty, commitment and integrity, and was a dedicated supporter of many committees and volunteer groups. Due to Ted’s foresight, diligence and hard work, Area ‘C’ implemented its Park Plan in 2004, eventually expanding to include the entire CSRD. Ted was instrumental in leading the establishment and funding of the Shuswap Lakes Integrated Planning Process (SLIPP), which received the Premier’s Award for promoting innovation and excellence. In his personal time, Ted spent many hours fishing, hiking, motorcycling and exploring the outdoors. He enjoyed listening to Andrea Bocelli, feeding the wild birds (and occasional uninvited bear), and devouring pound cake, bean salad, tea, and more pound cake. He was a proud member of the Canadian Blood Services ‘100 Club’ with 183 donations to his name. Ted was supported throughout his life by a loving family. He returned this love, and was extremely proud of his three children and adoring of his two grandchildren. Surrounded by his family, he passed away on June 13, 2012 after a brief, but aggressive illness. Ted leaves behind Bonnie, children Randy, Rochelle (Nicolas) and Jeremy, grandchildren Myles and Lily, stepmother Maria, stepfather Horst, siblings Barbara (Wolfgang), Martin (Shirley), Michael, Anita (Marzio) and many nieces, nephews and valued friends and acquaintances. He was predeceased by his parents Giovanni and Helga, and brother Mario. Plans are being made to gather on July 22 at the Blind Bay Hall to share stories and honour Ted for his work and dedication to the community. Contributions (in his name) can be directed to the Shuswap Community Foundation at shuswapfoundation.ca or by mail to Box 624, 450 Lakeshore Drive NE, Salmon Arm, BC. V1E 4N7. Arrangeents entrusted to FISCHER’S FUNERAL SERVICES & CREMATORIUM LTD., Salmon Arm, (250) 833-1129. EMAIL condolences and share memories at www.fischersfuneralservices.com

DOROTHY MARIE BOYLE We are very sad to announce the passing of Dorothy Marie Boyle on June 12, 2012 .Dorothy was born in Creston, British Columbia on August 12, 1930. Dorothy was a dedicated and well loved teacher by her Salmon Arm students. She was predeceased by her daughter, Beverley Anne Harris on January 25, 2012, her first husband Gordon Griffin in 1986, and by her second husband James Boyle in 1998. Dorothy is survived by her delightful, now adult twin grandchildren Janine and Jefferey Johnson. A Celebration of Life for Dorothy will take place on July 7, 2012 at 11:00 a.m. at Bower’s funeral home in Salmon Arm B.C. with lunch and social to follow in Bower’s Mountainside Common Room. Chaplin Bill Kiesman officiating. Sharing of memories will be welcome. Dorothy was an accomplished bridge player and, judging from the tools she had amassed, pretty good at house renovation. Her greatest gifts left for humanity are: dignity, grace, compassion, courage, and consideration of others. Dorothy will be missed by her many friends and will forever be in our thoughts and prayers. Online condolences can be sent through Dorothy’s obituary at www.bowersfuneralservice. com Funeral arrangements are in the care of Bowers Funeral Service, Salmon Arm

Hearts filled with gratitude On June 11, 2012, our treasured son, Andrew James Wilson, set off on another adventure to experience the magic of the Shuswap wilderness.

Our heartfelt gratitude goes out to the people of Seymour Arm, the Shuswap Volunteer Search and Rescue team, the Swift Water Rescue Team, Chase RCMP, the RCMP air service and the RCMP dive team who all dedicated many hours to the search for Andrew.

Hillcrest plan goes to ALC By Martha Wickett MARKET NEWS STAFF

Third time lucky. This time, however, owners of properties next to Hillcrest Elementary will have more than luck going for them. In 2005 and again in 2006, owners of properties at 2310 and 2450 10th Ave. SE and 1400 20th St. SE applied to council to have their properties removed from the Agricultural Land Reserve for a residential development. The land is owned by E.L. Belway, J.D. Grieve, AJ. Evans, K.W. Appeldoorn, a B.C. numbered company, R.H. McKibbon and N.L. McKibbon. In 2005, council didn’t authorize the submission because the city’s official community plan policies didn’t support expansion of the city’s urban containment boundary. As well, a survey had shown that adequate land was available for residential development. In 2006, the council of the day authorized the plan to remove the land from the ALR but the Agricultural Land Commission turned it down. At the city’s June 18 planning meeting, council members reviewed a third request to have an application authorized to the land commission. Council voted unanimously in favour. (Coun. Marg Kentel was absent.) The approval was restated at the June 25 council meeting. This time, backing their approval is the review of the official community plan carried out from 2009 to 2011. A report from the city’s planning department states that “the plan now recognizes that this area may be suitable for inclusion within the urban containment boundary because of its location to existing amenities and the consistent growth occurring in Area ‘A.’
