Caution urged as water recedes By Barb Brouwer MARKET NEWS STAFF

An unfamiliar symbol appeared Wednesday on Environment Canada’s Internet weather forecast page for the Shuswap. It is the sun. And after near-record rainfall in June, the future is looking brighter – and hotter. While heat will speed up high-altitude snowpack melt, David Campbell of the BC River Forecast Centre says mid-level snowpacks are gone

and he expects upper level packs, which are only 40 per cent of their former size, to melt without causing more flooding in Shuswap River. The dry sunny weather predicted for the next several days will see water levels steadily dropping. Shuswap Lake will remain on flood watch until the water level drops by another 15 to 20 centimetres, something Campbell believes will happen this weekend, or early next week. City of Salmon public works manager John Rosenberg says he figures

Man killed climbing Albas What was supposed to be a fun vacation turned deadly. According to Chase RCMP Sgt. Gary Heebner, the body of a 23-year-old Regina, Sask. man was pulled from the foot of Albas Falls Tuesday night. Heebner says the man had been houseboating with a group of people before deciding to climb the falls.

According to Heebner, the man is reported to have lost his footing on wet rock surface near the top of the falls. “He fell through two sets of falls before landing,” says Heebner, adding the man was dead by the time he reached bottom. The family has requested that the man’s name not be released.

Victims of flood want bridge Province: No plans to replace culvert. By Lachlan Labere MARKET NEWS STAFF

This time Swansea Point homeowners Glen and Linda Heming won’t be letting the province off the hook so easily. Last week the Hemings were busy removing truckload upon truckload of sand and debris from their front and back yards. Their Swansea Point Road residence was in the path of destruction left by Hummingbird Creek after it left its channel on the evening of Saturday, June 23, and came rampaging through the residential subdivision. Glen, who says the residence has been in his family since 1963, and who had recently finished renovating the place, says the foundation was compromised by the flooding water, which managed to fill his eight-foot-high basement. He says there is no insurance as it’s “an act of God,” and that seasonal residents do not qualify for disaster relief from the province. “We’re not permanent residents here so we don’t qualify,” Glen explained. “Most of the people here are in the same boat. So there’s no compensation.” So the Hemings are considering a class action suit which, as they explain, would be based on the fact that at one time, the B.C. government had planned to build a bridge over Hummingbird Creek instead of the culvert that was put in after an equally powerful debris

flow occurred in 1997. “We said they need a bridge there instead of a culvert,” says Glen. “The culvert is too small, they put steel rods in front of it to stop the trees from going down there – well that just made it dam quicker because nothing could go through it. What they need is a bridge so the material can continue going down the creek and into the lake.” Neighbour Dave Flemming wholeheartedly agrees a bridge may have lessened, if not prevented, the damage that occurred this time around. “It did exactly what it did in ’97 – it starts like pickup sticks against the culvert,” said Flemming. “And it starts to come over the road, and as soon as it started to come over the road the people who were here in ’97 said it’s going to flood again.” Across the road from the Hemings, Alpine Village Resort president Decker Shields is plodding around in gum boots, trying to deal with the damage done to 15 of the 18 residents impacted by the torrent. By a swimming pool filled with sand, and a residence that was pushed by water, concrete foundation and all, Shields explained he was in Swansea Point in 1997, and said he was surprised when the province replaced the former culverts with more of the same. “When they put the new culvert in, the first thing we were saying was, ‘This is like the old culvert,’” said Shields. “Why don’t they make two pillars, make it the same width as the creek bed, so if anything happens it stays in the creek bed for a longer term… “So I don’t know

and former Transportation Minister Kevin Falcon discuss debris flows at Hummingbird Creek. The three posed for this 2004 photo after Falcon indicated the province would be prepared to commit $4 million towards construction of a debris basin and bridge over Hummingbird Creek. what’s going on but all options are open.” According to Swansea Point’s political representative, Columbia Shuswap Regional District Electoral Area E director Rhona Martin, the B.C. government had $4 million on-hand to build a bridge as well as catch basins. However, Martin says the government wanted to costshare maintenance of the basins with Swansea Point residents. This issue went to referendum and Swansea Point residents voted it down. “The reason the electorate turned it down is because the other debris basins in the province, the maintenance is paid for by the province. It is protecting the province’s infrastructure and it is protecting the highway,” said Martin. “So the people of Swansea Point questioned, why should we pay for it when other people don’t have to pay for it, and I can understand that is why they voted the way that they did.” Shuswap MLA George Abbott, who

worked with Martin on getting the province’s support for the proposed bridge and catch basins, confirmed that the works were shelved as a result of the referendum. “My recollection was the Ministry of Transportation was prepared to bear 100 per cent of the cost of the bridge and the debris basin, subject to there being a specified area created for the maintenance of the debris basin, and there was a very minor cost associated with that but… I know it was turned down in referendum by a local vote.” Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure spokesperson Kate Trotter says “the culvert at Hummingbird is still in place and, while it was blocked by debris during the recent floods, it was not damaged.” “Crews were able to quickly clear the inlet and restore flow through the culvert,” Trotter explained in an email. “The culvert is working properly and there are no plans to replace it with a bridge.”

Haney serves up history By Barb Brouwer MARKET NEWS STAFF

The rain let up and the sun smiled on the Canada Day opening of Captain Billie Louie and the Pirate of the Shuswap, the annual Villains and Vittles Dinner Theatre. Written and produced by Peter Blacklock, the play is an entertaining snippet Shuswap history – with a few unexpected and somewhat stretched embellishments. Talented and wellvoiced, Alaura Bibby, Hannah Gomme, Caleb Makortoff and Aidan Sparks bring the production to life in a most delicious way. Also tasty and served in generous portions, the pork roast dinner is a satisfying prelude to the play. Food is also featured in the July 8 Pioneer Day celebration of Salmon Arm’s rich history. Start the day with a pancake breakfast at Marjorie’s Tea Room from 8:30 to 11 a.m. and, if you’re still hun-

gry, get in on the pieeating contest. Kids can compete in a cupcakeeating version. The Chris Stevens Family Band will perform, as will local country duo Vicki and John, who will have you singing along to your favourite old-time country songs. Register at Pioneer Day or by calling the Village at 250-832-5243. This year the the whole family will enjoy the old-fashioned midway, where you can play games of chance and skill and win prizes. Visit the Kid’s Corner and make a special pioneer craft, colour or have your face painted. While at Pioneer Day take a free tour of Haney House, the gem of the village. The Shuswap Pioneer Tractor Club will offer wagon rides and there will be many demonstrations and displays of life in pioneer times. Visit the many antique collectors and vendors.

OPINION Harper remaking Canada in own image The Harper government had plenty to celebrate this Canada Day. The Conservatives have been busy in recent months, remaking Canada into the nation they’ve always dreamed of: one with a permanent underclass to provide an endless supply of cheap labour for the corporate elite. First, the Conservatives began dismantling Canada’s Old Age Security program, stripping away any hopes for an early retirement for the working class. The government then set to work on Employment Insurance, bringing forward a proposal that would see any worker with the audacity to lose their job forced to take any work that comes along. But the most devastating blow might be delivered by the changes to Canada’s mortgage rules coming on July 9. Home buyers will now need to put at least 20 per cent down, with the amortization period reduced to 25 years. Finance Minister Jim Flaherty said the new rules are designed to reduce the risk of bank foreclosures. It’s hard to argue with that, as it’s hard to foreclose on something you don’t own. And that’s the one certainty these new rules will bring about: an end to the dream of home ownership for thousands of Canadians. Most first-time buyers will not qualify for a mortgage under the new rules. And with so many buyers now out of the market, housing prices are bound to take a hit. For a majority of Canadians, their home represents their largest single investment. That investment is now about to be significantly devalued, if not out of reach altogether. Not to worry, just tack a couple more years of minimum-wage work onto your golden years. But all is not lost. Parliament has now passed legislation making it easier to transport wine across provincial borders. And God knows Canadian workers have ample reason to want to drown their sorrows.

Kale for the table year round It was while I was sitting in my old Adirondack chair under the cherry tree in the front yard a couple of weekends ago, lamenting the fishing trip I’d planned for my two weeks of holidays that was blown out because of all the rain, that I realized how everything in the yard was so green and lush. The grass was, well green for change. The leaves on the trees were every shade of rich, luscious green you could imagine. The only thing in the whole yard that wasn’t green was my garden. The one where I planted nothing but potatoes last year, dug them up and hadn’t quite got around to planting anything at all this year. Yes, there were a couple of weeds that were green but, in general, the garden was but a 10 by 15-foot brownish-black rectangle that took up a good part of the yard at the side of the house. That was when I started thinking about kale. Actually, I was thinking that I had to go to the organic market to buy some kale to put in a shrimp stir fry for supper.

THE GREAT OUTDOORS James Murray My point being that I started thinking about my empty garden and kale at the same time. (I suppose I should also mention here that I consider gardening a part of the whole outdoor experience.) Kale is a dark green, leafy vegetable of the Brassica family that provides many nutrients, including beta carotene, vitamins K and C, lutein and calcium. Not only is kale a nutrient-rich, lowcalorie food, it is in its peak season during the winter months when fresh quality green foods can seem impossible to find. Kale is easy to grow and will self-seed once planted, thus providing food year after year with little care and attention. Aspiring “locavores” should note that

the purple, silvery-green, frilly, Tuscan and rainbowhued varieties of kale can be grown year-round in the province of B.C. Kale can be harvested as a ‘baby green’ in about 30 days, as well as, allowed to grow to full maturity. Kale can be eaten raw in salads (especially the small, tender new shoots and leaves), steamed as a vegetable on its own, mixed into a stir fry, added to soups or mixed into casseroles. It can be served year round. Historically, the thousandhead variety of kale is the progenitor of all other Brassica oleracea crops, including cabbage, broccoli, Brussels sprouts and cauliflower. It is hard to find another vegetable with more nutritional value and historical significance than kale. Kale, which has even been dubbed a modern ‘superfood’ by many nutritionists, is one of the most nutrientdense greens in existence and has been grown and harvested for thousands of years. Yet, despite the fact that kale is lauded as a miracle food, most people don’t

really know how to prepare it for the table. In her book, The Book of Kale – The Easy-To-Grow Superfood, Vancouver author Sharon Hanna details more than 80 recipes and ways to prepare and enjoy this leafy vegetable. She describes all sorts of dishes, ranging from simple kale chips to scalloped kale with browned butter and sage. This garden-to-kitchen guide (which just so happened to be sent to me recently for review) gives readers all the information they’ll ever need to know to grow, harvest, prepare and enjoy this super-sustainable crop. I read The Book of Kale and subsequently learned a heck of a lot about a plant that, although I’ve been eating it for years, discovered that I did not know anywhere near as much as I thought I knew. I have since sent away to West Coast Seed Company for three different variety of kale seeds. With a bit of luck, I should have kale growing in my garden until well after the snow comes.

Time to rethink what’s always been done James Murray’s lament for the end to fishing at McGuire Lake offers little or no justification for this so-called sport. He provides even less justification for encouraging (educating?) children to adopt such a disrespectful and disruptive recreational use of nature. His main rationale seems to be that he’s done it for his entire life. (“When I was a kid, fishing was fun – plain simple fun,” Market News, June 29). Perhaps it was (fun) for James, but most of us have come to realize that what we’ve always done is not necessarily appropriate forever.

Alas! However much we may yearn for ‘the good old days,’ the world changes, it’s no longer some unspoiled Earth, and, as Einstein stated: “In order to solve problems, we must see the world anew, and not from the consciousness and perspective that produced the problems in the first place.” We have also come to realize that treating nature as nothing more than entertainment (fun) – whatever the impact on wildlife – is an ethically indefensible position. James and others, at least, have not supplied one, beyond the dubious, ‘this is just

what we do,’ position. So, the frightening environmental realities of this, the 21st century, cry out for us to re-examine what we’ve always done, and revise our relationship to nature accordingly. Surely this means encouraging and practising nature protection and preservation ethics, not nature depletion and nature disrespect – in short, understanding ecological systems and creating as little disturbance as possible – in our recreation, and all other nature-related activities..

Celebrating century of community

OUT AND ABOUT Lynda Hooper The Sorrento 100 Committee now has a home to display a wealth of local information in various forms, with historical publications available. The committee’s storefront headquarters are at the east end of the building located at the southwest corner of the Trans-Canada Highway and Notch Hill Road. When I asked Sorrento 100 Committee member Louise Barber what would happen with the displays, she said, “There is a plan for a future home, the details are being worked out at the moment.”

With the amount of time represented in the framed maps and charts, there is much to see and appreciate, especially the dedicated volunteers. With the sudden passing of Maureen Brass, someone with incomparable dedication to the community, the Sorrento 100 volunteer drive is more focused than ever. She will be missed. If you are able to help out with time to volunteer at various Sorrento 100 activities for the duration of the year, call Louise Barber at 250-253-5776.

Tour continues A tour of 10 heritage properties is a special feature of the Sorrento 100 celebrations. Gates Open, a guided tour, will be held July 19 from noon to 4 p.m. Property owners will open the exterior grounds to visitors interested in architectural history over the past century.

This is a collaborative community initiative to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the naming of Sorrento and to increase the awareness of the community’s rich heritage. Number seven on the Gates Open tour guide is the Sorrento General Store and Post Office. Built in 1910 as a general store and post office, it received its official postal cancelling stamp in 1912. The flat-roofed building has two stories, wood siding, a wood plank porch with shed roof and original windows from the old store. Available to purchase in the shop were stovepipes, hardware, candy, baking needs, and some meat. Patrons were able to pay their bills when they were able.

Arts festival The theme of this the 29th Shuswap Lake Festival of the Arts is

“Celebrating Sorrento’s 100th Birthday.” Shuswap Lake Festival of the Arts is a non-profit organization providing a venue for all artists who wish to participate. The nine-day festival opens at 10 a.m. Saturday, July 14 at Sorrento Memorial Hall.

Shuswap Lake Estates sues B.C. government By Tim Petruk BLACK PRESS

A Blind Bay golf course and housing development is suing the provincial government for nearly $3.5 million to make up for business losses allegedly suffered during highway construction. In court documents filed in B.C. Supreme Court in Kamloops on June 19, Shuswap Lake Estates claims to have lost $3,404,737 as a result of the widening

of Highway 1 north of Notch Hill Road — a project that began in March of 2010 and didn’t wrap up until last September. “As a result of the project, the plaintiffs sustained significant business losses due to the limited access available during construction,” the documents read, adding that postconstruction access to the golf course has been limited as well. “The visibility and access to their busi-

nesses has been severely impacted.” According to the documents, Shuswap Lake Estates owners entered into a contract with the B.C. Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure in 2009. The documents claim the contract included a clause allowing the golf course to seek damages if any should occur. Shuswap Lake Estates officials claim costs of nearly $350,000 for utility work and losses of more than

$400,000 for green fees and cart rentals, nearly $200,000 for lounge and food sales and almost $2.5 million in lost lot sales. In addition to the $3.4-million amount, the golf course is also seeking compensation for “permanent business losses” as a result of the new access roads off the highway, as well as interest on compensation and costs. The provincial government has yet to file a response.

AN UNFORGETTABLE GOLF EXPERIENCE!

Considering your privacy In light of concerns over modern technology and social media, the Standing Committee on Access to Information, Privacy and Ethics is currently studying issues around your privacy. Today, with modern data systems, personal information can be stored and sold to those wishing to market their wares. I was browsing the Internet looking at various models of vehicles, and it was not long after that I started to receive ads from car manufacturers. At first, I did not connect the dots. Then I realized that by using my browser, the search engines and websites were personalizing ads based on my browsing history. What other personal information about you is being used/shared

FROM THE HILL Colin Mayes without your knowledge? Service contracts have small print hidden in complicated legal jargon. For most Canadians it is too time-consuming to read, therefore they just hit the ‘agree’ button and carry on. But should we require search engines, email providers and/or web companies to make these settings more obvious and easier to opt in or out of? Canada has some of the most stringent

privacy laws, but the challenge now is how to enforce them. If you pass a law in Canada to protect individual privacy rights, how does one apply this as the Internet is international and knows no borders? The privacy commissioner did take Facebook to task on some of these issues and did get some of the privacy concerns addressed. But still, the attitude of many web companies across the globe is: ‘if you think we are violating your privacy rights, so what, sue us.’ At a meeting with a representative from Research In Motion (RIM), the manufacturer of Blackberry, the question was asked – what’s Blackberry’s future? The answer was your passport, driv-

ers licence, bank card, banking information, health card and every piece of personal information will be stored on whatever handheld device you use. In addition, some iPhones and text devices have GPS services that can track the customer wherever they go. Is all or any of this acceptable? Possible outcomes of the study may include more requirements for transparent service provider contracts, tougher penalties for violations of privacy, and the ability for Canadians to access and/or retrieve their personal information stored with advertisers and/or web companies. I look forward to reading the recommendations of this study, once completed, and will report back to you.

SHIM work awarded By Lachlan Labere MARKET NEWS STAFF

The city has awarded a Salmon Arm company a contract worth $51,000 to complete two environment-based inventories. Out of 11 applicants, Forsite Consultants was recommended by staff, and chosen by council, to do a sensitive habitat inventory and mapping (SHIM) project, as well as a wetland inventory and mapping (WIM) project. Through city staff’s technical evaluation process, Forsite actually came in second place with 72.8 points, behind Karen Grainger of Burns Lake. A staff memo to council explains Forsite would complete both studies for 68 kilome-

tres of streams and 60 wetlands within the study area for the specified budget ($51,100 maximum), and that this “would provide an increase in value above the next qualified proponent in the technical point rankings in the amount of 53 per cent for streams and 20 per cent for wetlands.� Coun. Denise Reimer said she was excited to see this project move forward. “I know there’s a lot of people waiting for this to happen,� said Reimer, who thanked staff for the work they’ve done. “I guess I’m very excited also, and pleased, that a local company was chosen, based on the criteria of course,� Reimer added.

Group looking for hospice alternatives By Barb Brouwer MARKET NEWS STAFF

End-of-life care is on the table for discussion and Dr. Joan Bratty is hoping residents will speak up. Bratty is chair of a committee overseeing a collaborative initiative between local family doctors and Interior Health. “The mandate of working group is to look into status of the current (hospice) care through surveys and hospital questionnaires,� she says, pointing out very few people have not had some experience with palliative care issues. “We are reviewing palliative care services in the Shuswap area with the aim of improving the care of terminally ill patients and their families. There are lots of opinions about quality of service and we’re trying to get as

much community engagement as possible.� A survey to assess community opinion of palliative care services in our region is now available in local doctors’ offices, the outpatient lab/community care office at the top of Tank Hill and online at www.surveymonkey. com/s/shuswappcare. Hospital patients and their families will also be given an opportunity to express their opinions and concerns about palliative care in the area. The survey seeks opinions on how well needs of both patients, families and friends were met in a hospice situation, availability of helpful information and transition to or from hospital. There is an opportunity to express both kudos and concerns regarding hospice care, to present suggestions for

improvements and to get involved in a community forum. The information obtained from the survey will be for data collection purposes only. All survey responses will remain anonymous. Surveys must be completed and returned by September. Results of the survey will be presented at a public forum to be held in Salmon Arm Nov. 14. The forum will include focus groups to allow interested community members to discuss issues and share their ideas. “We will provide research about palliative care in rural communities – that’s a unique setting,� says Bratty, noting candid input is important and valued. “It’s a critical health care issue for everybody, so we’re trying to get as much information back as possible.�

Trying out Funtastic By Roger Knox BLACK PRESS

Newbies to the Vernon portion of the Funtastic slo-pitch tournament, Salmon Arm’s No Glove No Love made a few rookie mistakes. Like, for example, being unaware that the Army Camp location had 13 diamonds. “I went to four diamonds before I finally found the right one,” laughed lefthanded catcher Alanna Guenter, who showed up about, oh, five minutes before the team’s opening game on DND Diamond 3. “They should have signs and bigger numbers on both sides of the screens.” After scoring a 12-8 win over the Fat Bats – a team dressed up as airplane pilots and flight attendants – No Glove No Love had a bit of a break (and its own tailgate party)

before heading to Grahame Park for game two against Rally Time (no costumes), a match played in, well, a steady dose of “liquid sunshine.” “I don’t like this rain thingy,” said No Glove No Love outfielder Dave Johnson, especially when the game was cut short by the downpour, with the team trailing by two runs. “There needs to be covered dugouts at Fulton Secondary, put that in your report,” added second baseman Keitha Amdam, to a reporter. Overall, No Glove No Love went 3-2 in its round-robin play, then lost its playoff game Monday morning to finish 3-3 in their inaugural Vernon appearance. “I’ve played in Enderby before but this is our first time in Vernon and it’s been great, other than the

rain,” said shortstop Shaun Balicki. No Glove No Love got through play Saturday by picking up a Vernon player to have the required 10 players before fielding a full roster Sunday. “He wore his glove, he got some love,” laughed first baseman Jodi Crocker. No Glove No Love is, of course, just one of hundreds of examples of why teams flock to the North Okanagan for Canada’s largest slo-pitch and music festival. To play ball, have some fun and enjoy some music. Many of the teams played in costumes ranging from neon tank tops and wigs, to pirate outfits to brides and grooms, complete with wedding gowns and tuxedos. Besides Vernon, which hosts more than 240 teams, another 36 play in Armstrong and 32 play in Enderby.

Orchardists find fuel for GMO battle BLACK PRESS

Okanagan orchardists say they have the required proof to fight genetically modified fruit. A national survey indicates 69 per cent of the 1,501 respondents are not in favour of a genetically engineered apple. “We are not in favour of genetically modified food because of the market risk,” said Glen Lucas, B.C. Fruit Growers Association general manager. “The survey validated growers’ concerns that there could be a possible backlash against genetically modified apples.” Lucas says there are several examples of genetically modified organisms being developed and negatively impacting market conditions. Beyond domestic consumers, there is a concern some international customers could stop buying Okanagan apples if genetically modified organisms are allowed. “Europe doesn’t like this kind of product,” said Lucas. The survey was commissioned by B.C. and Quebec orchardists after an Okanagan biotech company applied to have a genetically modified apple approved by the government. When

Seventy-six per cent of respondents stated the federal government has not provided adequate information about genetically modified food. A further nine per cent said they had not heard of genetically modified food prior to the survey. Ninety-one per cent of respondents agreed that mandatory labelling of genetically modified food should be required by the federal government. If the food were clearly labelled as being genetically modified, 14 per cent of respondents would purchase the food without hesitating, 45 per cent said it would

depend on the type of food being purchased, and 35 per cent said that nothing could convince them to purchase genetically modified food. Seventy-one per cent of the survey respondents indicated they are in favour or having a special category of food (e.g. milk, apples, Pablum, fruits and vegetables) that should not be genetically engineered or be free of genetically engineered ingredients. The survey results will be sent to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency and the federal health and agriculture ministers. “We want to express our concerns about the current regulations on genetically modified

products,” said Lucas. “People want more information. We would like the government to postpone further introductions (of genetically modified fruit) until they get their act together and have better public discussion on the issue.”

Some boat launches closed Marine campers on Shuswap Lake will have to find a new pastime for a while. Although provincial campsites in the Shuswap are open and accepting campers, marine campsites are not. Alan Hobler with BC Parks says the boatin sites are the ones most impacted. When they open will depend on water levels. “It sounds like things have peaked and have started to come down a little bit,” he said June 29. “I think it will be a little while before water comes down significantly and we are able to have the beach sites open.” Besides, he noted, boats on the lake are not a good idea for both safety and environmental reasons. “Boats on the lake

On Sunday, July 1, the detachment received a report of a boat moving quickly near the shore along Sunnybrae Canoe Point Road, its wake causing debris to wash upon the road. The boat was not located, though it was later reported to have slowed down. Police are asking boaters to slow down near developed areas along the foreshore. In addition, boaters need to take caution out on Shuswap and Mara lakes, where there is a great deal of debris in the water. Alcoholics Anonymous www.bcyukonaa.org

The read was enjoyable, a page turner to the very end, complete with romance, plenty of adventure, intellectually satisfying with an underlying message and philosophy. No sensationalistic assaults, explicit sex, or long, drawn-out redundancy to undermine the well-written story.

Kenning said. “It’s no different than golf that way, consistency and practice are important to success.” Though the skill is ancient, today’s bows and arrows are more high-tech, made of composite materials, Kenning said every bow sold from his shop comes complete with three hours of lessons and setup, with safety paramount.

Two 14 year olds are lucky to be alive after their afternoon of kayaking went wrong. Despite public notices advising people to stay off the water, the two Lower Mainland boys decided to venture out and test the waters. About 9:30 p.m. on June 26, a call came into the RCMP in Chase from two people who had seen two flipped kayaks from shore.

“They said they had seen two kayaks had overturned, one person was seen just offshore, the other was no longer visible,” says Cpl. Mark Skotnicki. Officers launched their boat from a local marina to search for the boys, as fire rescue and ambulance personnel made their way on land. Both boys had managed to swim their way to shore safely, but officers agreed they were very lucky. “They have gone

home with their mother,” said Tim Kenning, a member of Chase Fire Rescue who was on the scene. “They are wet and cold, but safe.” It appears that rough waters were what caused the boys’ kayaks to tip, just as the sun began to set in the area. An investigation is underway, says Skotnicki. “Neither of the two boys was wearing life jackets.” The RCMP are considering laying charges.

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.

Restored museum needs help

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.

Chase Museum will be opening again soon, after an intense restoration period following the devastating fires that severely damaged the heritage building one year ago. More resources than ever are needed. Volunteers to help are especially in demand. In terms of funding, the museum’s annual Heritage Golf Tournament, Auction, Dinner and Dance July 14 at the Sunshore Golf Club is the largest fundraising event for non-profit organization.

The Elector Response Forms include the following statement:

All proceeds from this event go to the restoration of the Chase and District Museum. “This year, donations for the auction have been tremendous,” said volunteer co-ordinator Joan Anderson. “Museums along with other organizations from all around, have contributed.” Auction items include theatre/accommodation packages, sporting and adventure packages, artwork, collectors’ items, handcrafted furniture,

books, trips, concert tickets, sports jerseys and memorabilia, pet supplies, “Museums of BC” packages, cable TV package, and much, much more. Dinner and dance tickets are $30 per person, with entry forms and additional dinner/ dance tickets being available at Sunshore Golf Course and the Chase Visitor Centre. For further information or to volunteer, call the Chase Museum at 250-679-8847, or email at info@chasemuseum.ca.

“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.

Curling club gets funds The Chase Curling Club has seen decreasing numbers in membership over the past few years, the spirit remaining as strong as ever in the ones who endure. There is a youth program bringing in new curlers, with former Village of Chase Coun. Diane Overton

as coach. With some wellintended restructuring in membership fees, the situation had not improved over the last season, so a request was made to the Village of Chase Council in the form of a letter, for any assistance possible. At the Chase Coun-

cil Meeting June 26, Coun. David Lepsoe responded: “I think the village should give the curling club $5,000 from the grant-in-aid fund, the money is there.” Mayor Ron Anderson added, “There hasn’t been as much demand for the GIA mon-

ies as in prior years.” The Curling Club has been hosting popular pancake breakfasts, all staffed by volunteers, to supplement membership fees. There is also a lunch counter, with a separate meeting room upstairs for rent to community organizations.

Trendy New “Super Foods” and their benefits

Alzheimer society seeks volunteers Volunteers don’t get paid, not because they’re worthless, but because they’re priceless” – Sherry Anderson, Author This quote echoes the sentiment of the non-profit Alzheimer Society of B.C, especially in Salmon Arm. Volunteers are a treasured resource that allow the society to provide a range of free services for families dealing with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. “They are absolutely invaluable to our team and are a big reason why we are able to meet the growing need for support and education for families living with dementia,” says Michelle Hallren, the society’s regional support and education coordinator for the North and Central Okanagan. An estimated one in 11 B.C. residents over age 65 already lives with Alzheimer’s and other dementia. And that number is projected to double over the next generation. Volunteers are needed to facilitate local support groups that meet each month. The objective is to strengthen coping abilities of caregivers and people with early symptoms of dementia, and reduce the impact of

dementia on the community. Volunteers must possess: • Excellent listening and empathetic skills. • Knowledge of dementia or a willingness to learn. • Facilitation skills or a willingness to learn. • Formal or informal caregiving an asset. Training is provided, and a one-year commitment is required. “The work is very rewarding,” says Donna O’Hearn, local support group facilitator. “Volunteering has given me the feeling that I can do something very positive...” Caregivers who work with the volunteers can vouch for the positive impact on their lives. “It is very challenging to even know where to begin,” says care provider Joanne Roach. “The Alzheimer Society not only opened doors for me, it gave me a new lease on life. I am no longer a lonely traveller but have connected with others with similar experiences and continue to learn on my journey.” For more information on volunteering, contact Hallgren at 250-860-0305, tollfree 1-800-634-3399 or mhallgren@alzheimerbc.org.

seeds, grown and harvested in South America and Mexico, have been touted as a popular super food. Some research shows that chia seeds have the potential to support heart and digestive health, thanks to their high fat (as omega-3 fatty acid) and fibre content. Chia seeds have a mild, almost non-existent flavour, and contain no cholesterol. They are gluten free and low in saturated fats. Chia seeds are recommended as a pro-

Automotive

tein choice for vegetarians and vegans, as they contain all the amino acids we need to consume. Chia seeds can be purchased as ground whole chia seeds, chia flour, and chia oil. Chia flour can be used as a gluten-free alternative in place of all-purpose flour in baking recipes. Thus, chia seeds can be a great food choice but should be treated as an addition to your diet and not an agent of disease prevention. There is no one food

item that can provide all the energy and nutrients your body needs. These super foods may be beneficial in many ways but they should not be a replacement for a well-balanced diet. Give these foods a try by adding them to your favourite dishes for some extra nutrition and variety. Rose Soneff, Community Nutritionist in collaboration with Stephanie Lau and Janine Seto, UBC Dietetics Students.

“Super food” is a term used to promote certain foods as having additional health benefits beyond basic nutrition.

There are several health claims associated with this berry including lowered blood cholesterol levels and antiaging benefits; however, more research is needed to support these claims.

They are mildly sweet and sour, and can be incorporated into a variety of dishes, including soups, stews, or desserts. They are usually sold as juice or dried. Goji juice is ready for consumption but dried goji berries need to be cooked. Goji berries are a source of a

WHITING, SHEILA DAWN On Tuesday, June 26, 2012 Mrs. Sheila Dawn Whiting passed away peacefully at the Kamloops Hospice Home at the age of 63 years, with family present. She is survived by her loving husband Stacey, her daughter Shelley and son Shane, grandson Zeth; her brothers Tom, Gary and three sisters Debbie, Wendy, Jennifer and mother Betty. She was predeceased by her father Sydney Yates in 2011. Sheila was a very vibrant, loving person who experienced each day with renewed positive energy that effected all around her. Her smile along with a hug was her standard greeting. Sheila had a special place in her heart for her grandson-Zeth. His visits were always a highlight for her as their bond was exceptional. Family was always important to Sheila but she was always interested in other people’s lives and took time to listen. Sheila enjoyed working at the lab at RIH with all her workmates who were a close group. Sheila was very active all her live. Curves became her place of exercise but she also very much enjoyed the social environment it provided for her with all her friends. Sheila retired in Feb 2006 and 2 months later had cancer. Sheila’s relentless battle with ovarian cancer for the last 6 years, which involved over 40 chemo treatments and surgery, it then became my privilege to serve as her caregiver. People around Sheila fed off her positive attitude, which was a delight to watch. Thank you to Dr Ellard and nurse Karen at the Kelowna cancer clinic, 8th floor RIH cancer clinic, Dr Stabler and Dr Montalbetti for their attention to detail that they provided for Sheila. Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, Love leaves a memory no one can steal. A Celebration of Sheila’s life will be held on Saturday, July 14, 2012 at 11am in the Southwest Community Church with Royal Inland Hospital Spiritual Chaplain Viktor Jan Gundel officiating. Should friends desire, donations to the Kamloops Hospice Association or the Royal Inland Hospital, Cancer Services Fund in memory of Sheila would be appreciated.

After the war the family returned to live in Chase Creek and later moved to the newly established VLA Flat in Chase, where Con built their home. A daughter, Maxine, was born in 1947. The family later lived at Adams Lake and started the Indian Point Resort area with camping and trail rides. Hannah loved living on the lake and gloried in having family and friends visit and stay with her there. In 1964, they returned to the Chase home and Hannah worked at the Chase post office. Hannah’s last years were spent at Ponderosa Lodge and Overlander Extended Care Hospital in Kamloops. Hannah was a lifelong member of the Chase branch of the Catholic Women’s League. She had many interests such as gardening, writing and her music. She was always ready to take on new projects and was a great mentor to the young ones who gathered around. Her sense of humor, love of animals and kindness were always evident – (blue food coloring in the mashed potatoes to surprise us – a puppy’s cool nose on your cheek to kiss you awake in the morning, always room for extra at the table and in her heart). She made us know we could accomplish anything we wanted to in life. Her strong faith and courage carried her through her last years with grace and dignity. She passed away June 24, 2012 at the age of 92 years. We will miss her smile and her love so much – but we will always remember her. A special thank you to Dr. D Hamilton, Dr. T. Eccleston, Dr. C. Bantock and the incredible staff of Overlander Extended Care Hospital for their tender care. Prayers were recited on Monday, July 2nd at 7:00 pm in the Church of the Blessed Sacrament, Chase, BC. The funeral mass aws celebrated on Tuesday morning at 11:00 am. Interment followed in the Chase Community Cemetery. If so desired, contributions in memory of Hannah may be made to the Alzheimer Society of BC, Suite 300, 828 West 8th Avenue, Vancouver, BC, V5Z 1E2. Online condolences may be sent through Hannah’s obituary at www.bowersfuneralservice. com Arrangements are in the care of Bowers Funeral Home, Salmon Arm.
