Federated selling to Gorman By Martha Wickett OBSERVER STAFF

By those involved, it’s being described as a win-win-win situation. Federated Co-operatives Limited gets to divest itself of its forest products company, Gorman Bros. Lumber Ltd. can enhance its wood supply, and the more than 300 people employed by Federated’s Canoe operation get to keep their jobs and their wages. Although it will likely be another two months at least before the transaction is finalized, Federated Co-operatives Limited has officially announced it has entered into an agreement to sell its Forest Products Division assets and operations at Canoe to Gorman Bros. Lumber Ltd. of Westbank. “It’s an excellent opportunity for both Gorman and FederDarrell ated Cooperatives,” Embley said Darrell Embley, FEDERATED Federated’s vicepresident of forest products, noting that Federated has wanted a buyer who would keep the operation running. “They (Gorman) are great for the community, they’re not in the business of shutting operations down. We’re very, very pleased...” Embley said Federated has been a good employer over time, but the federation doesn’t need to own a forest products company in order to supply forest products to its membership. “It’s probably time to have this operation in the hands of a forest company who understands the business moving forward.” Rick Scott, chief financial officer with Gorman Bros. Lumber, said Federated’s “fibre basket” or selection of timber, as well as its location, matches well with Gorman’s operations in the Okanagan and Revelstoke. See No job changes on page A2

Care concerns: Dina and Bruce Loeb look at a picture of Dina’s late father, who she says was over-medicated to help keep him compliant while he was living at Bastion Place.



t may be July, but snow is the word that reverberates through Dina Loeb’s head. Her father, Jack Johnson, died in Bastion Place Jan. 12 and Dina and her husband, Bruce, believe his death was, at least in part, a result of “snowing” with the prescription medication Seroquel, or Quetiapine, as it is also known. Snowing is a colloquial term for sedating an individual so they are no longer intrusive or distracting in their behaviour

or the sounds they make. Seroquel is an anti-psychotic drug, whose use has been banned in the U.S. and for which Health Canada issued a risk communication in 2005, advising health care professionals of the risk of giving the drug to elderly patients with dementia and has since required that all manufacturers of anti-psychotic drugs include warnings in their product monographs. Yet Johnson, who was diagnosed with dementia in 2003, was prescribed Seroquel in April 2011. The Loebs maintain Bastion

Place and Interior Health officials have failed to respond adequately to their concerns and believe Johnson was inappropriately and over-medicated. Dissatisfied by answers they have so far received from Bastion Place and Interior Health, the Loebs wrote a letter to the Ministry of Health on April 12 but were referred back to Interior Health. Deborah Smith, residential health services administrator for Interior Health West, says the health authority takes the issue of medication very seriously. “All medications are pre-

scribed by a physician and we have a least-restraint policy,” she says, noting she understood the Loebs were satisfied with what they heard at a family meeting last fall. “We use methods that are the least intrusive and that maintain the dignity of the residents.” Dina describes her father as “the most joyful man you could ever meet,” and says he and her mom Florence moved in with the Loebs in 2010. He had never showed any signs of violence until last spring. See Relatives on page A10

When a known drug dealer took off after spotting police early last week, the officer decided not to jeopardize anyone’s safety by going after him in a busy parking lot. Police, instead, decided to wait until they saw his vehicle again. And they did, says Cpl. Luiz Sardhina. Between 7 and 9 p.m. on Thursday, July 5, police arrested a man known to them for trafficking cocaine. Police report that they watched the man complete a drug deal outside his vehicle. He was arrested and cocaine, cash and a cell phone were seized. Soon a text came in on the phone from a number police were familiar with. The man, who lives in the Shuswap, had come up from Surrey and had




stopped at a local motel. “He texted, we texted him back and said, ‘Yeah, we’ll meet you behind Tim Hortons,” said Sardhina. They met him, where he didn’t get what he was looking for. Instead, he was arrested on outstanding domestic violence charges and his crack cocaine was seized. “What we’re finding is dealers are carrying everything. A lot of crack cocaine, powder, meth and heroin,” Sardinha explains. “It’s a one-stop shop for most of these guys. It’s all dial-a-dope, no crack shacks.” He said a lot of dealers will use two or three cell phones at a time. And a lot of the arrests police are making are out-of-towners. Overall, the arrests seem to be taking their toll. Sardinha points out that one potential buyer was angry with police for cleaning up the streets.

Pitching in: Volunteers Danika Sholinder, Scott Linkowski, Brandy Hadley, Marianne Gardner and Cindy and Arianna Sholinder help clean up debris on Canoe Beach Saturday.

Canoe Beach remains closed By Barb Brouwer OBSERVER STAFF

A storm in the Shuswap Monday night gave Salmon Arm a miss. And it looks like hot, sunny beach weather is on tap for the next five days at least. But, despite the current heat wave, tourists and area residents are going to have to wait a while longer before

heading to the local beach. “We’re hoping the worstcase scenario is that we open sometime next week, but that’s all weather-dependent,” said City of Salmon Arm Public Works Manager John Rosenberg Monday. “We’re taking our cues from the province and CSRD with regards to opening our beach.” Rosenberg offers high praise to Marianne Gardner,

who operates Kontiki Cafe on the beach, for her organization of a clean-up event last Saturday that involved more than 30 volunteers and Federated Co-operatives. Gardner says several truckloads of wood scraps, branches, bark and logs were hauled away, with the mill supplying a three-ton truck that the volunteers filled with debris. “The mill, at no cost, hauled

the loads to their site throughout the weekend and ran the wood scraps through the chipper, recycling the seemingly unusable flotsam and jetsam,” she said. Volunteers floated the large logs manually or by skiff to the dock, ready for the mill’s tug boat to tow them to the mill Monday morning.

Vandals strike wharf Continued from pg. A3 While he appreciates the efforts, Rosenberg says he continues to have concerns, including the boat launch, which remains underwater and two irrigation boxes whose lids have come off. “They’re underwater and if you were to step in one you could break your leg,” he said, noting a lot of the wood debris contains nails. “The city recognizes there are certainly on-scene dangers. We don’t close things lightly, there’s definitely reasons.”

Rosenberg says other concerns include, the federal wharf, which has a boat launch beside it and a submerged concrete storm outlet pipe that could easily take a boat propeller out. “That’s a liability we’re not prepared to take,” he says, noting staff still hope the federal wharf that rose off its pilings will settle back down as the water recedes. A roof that had been placed high atop the pilings to prevent kids from diving from them was vandalized or stolen over the weekend. “That’s probably $1,500 worth of vandalism ,” he says. “It was there Friday and gone Monday.”

Shuswap man jailed after crime spree Nineteen counts: Break and enter, mischief, possession of stolen property in B.C. and Alberta. By Roger Knox BLACK PRESS

A Shuswap man was given slightly more than a month in jail for each of the 19 counts he pleaded guilty to in provincial court. Jason Ross Cameron, 34, of Celista, entered guilty pleas in Salmon Arm Provincial Court on July 3 to the 19 counts stemming

from incidents in Vernon, Salmon Arm and Alberta, and was sentenced to 21 months in jail. Judge Edmond de Walle gave Cameron jail time on all of the counts, the highest being 21 months for a break-and-enter to commit an indictable offence charge, and ordered the counts be served concurrently. Cameron was given one day in

jail for a mischief charge out of Vernon which stemmed from a stolen truck being backed into the front entrance of the Royal Bank branch at The Shops at Polson Park mall on April 9, 2011. Cameron and another suspect were caught by the bank’s surveillance cameras. It’s believed the pair were trying to take the facility’s ATM machine.

The truck later damaged nearby businesses with a swinging chain after it fled the scene. Cameron was part of a group of four people arrested near Salmon Arm two days later after the truck was stopped by RCMP using a spike belt following a short chase. Cameron’s Salmon Arm offences included guilty pleas to two counts of possession of sto-

len property over $5,000, breakand-enter with intent to commit an indictable offence, flight from a peace officer and one breach of conditions. He also pleaded guilty to 13 counts of break-and-enter, possession of stolen property and breaches from incidents in Drayton Valley, Castor, Evansburg and Tomahawk, Alta.

New low in telemarketing Marketing, like politics, can be very dirty. Until recently, the telemarketer that raised my ire the most is the aggressive-voiced female, who frequently leaves messages on my answering machine. She launches into a diatribe about how my credit rating is at stake if I don’t attend to it – fast. In a less aggressive voice, she says there is nothing wrong with my credit rating, but it could be even better if I push some button or other. I don’t remember the number because, by now, I have usually slammed the phone down. This, to me, is marketing in its lowest form. While my credit rating is indeed fine now, I have over my lifetime been in situations when things were tight, times when creditors, who had been so willing to lend were fast to demand immediate payment. I can remember the heart-thudding, stomach-clenching humiliation of those calls. So, even though I know I am financially fine, these calls trigger unpleasant memories and I can well imagine how this telemarketer’s call could affect someone who is under financial duress. And I have a new gripe. I am well-aware of the risks of Internet shopping and am very careful. I know that if I browse some sites, I will receive a spate of emails from places I’ve never heard of, trying to sell me something. That’s OK, because they’re gone in one click of the delete button. Unfortunately, other marketers are not so easy to shake. I have had a couple of major department store cards for more years than I’d like to admit, and for the most part, have had no reason to complain. Not any more. Sometime in March – after 9 p.m., when I was deep in a game of Words With Friends, my phone rang. The man on the other end identified himself as a representative of one of these companies. He offered me membership in a program that would bring me huge savings in a variety of stores. “No thank you, I am not interested,” I told him, anxious to return to my game. But, he waxed poetical, promised a package of valuable coupons would be coming my way and, if I wasn’t totally satisfied, a phone call within 30 days would cancel my membership, without charge. Stupidly, I accepted, then promptly forgot about the call, the package and the membership. When I use this card, I immediately pay the bill with my bank card, so the payment shows up on the bill above the charges. Imagine then, my surprise to see two month’s of charges, charges that brought back memories of that rainy night in March and the fact the promised package had never arrived. A call to the company revealed that the man who sold me the package was not a representative of the card-holding company. “So, you don’t want us to give your name to third-party marketers, you want us to take you off the list?” he asked. Wait a minute! I don’t ever remember giving anyone permission to share my info. Getting out of the program with a full refund was a convoluted hassle. At least I think I got out. Next month’s bill will tell the tale.



Learning from very human mistakes When mitigating the effects of a natural calamity, mistakes are bound to be made. On the evening of June 23, when devastating debris flows occurred in Sicamous’ Two Mile subdivision and at Swansea Point, there was an immediate effort – much of it voluntary – to evacuate affected residents to safety. Among those evacuated were houseboaters from out of province who lost their vehicles and other personal belongings in the torrent. How they were dealt with at the evacuation centre has since come into question, following reports from individuals who claim they were treated unfairly, and that no help was made available to them. Subsequent to such stories hitting the media, comment boards on Alberta websites have been ablaze with rhetoric, painting the entire province of British Columbia as unfriendly to, and discriminatory against Albertans. Such generalizations are obviously untrue, particu-

larly when it comes to Sicamous, where Albertans aren’t just visitors, they’re essentially fellow Sicamousians. Sicamous’ mayor and the B.C. government have acknowledged that mistakes were made regarding outof-province evacuees, and officials have assured that these errors are being addressed, and those unfairly impacted will be looked after. Any loss suffered as a result of the incidents in Sicamous and Swansea Point is lamentable, and certainly no one needing help should have been treated differently than anyone else. It is unfortunate that mistakes were made. Mistakes, by nature, are unintentional and, unfortunately, bound to happen when many people are suddenly pulled together in reaction to a natural disaster. People don’t always behave well under extreme stress. What matters now is learning from our mistakes and making sure they don’t happen again. And that appears to be what is happening.

The Observer asked:

Now that we finally have some warm weather, what are your plans to escape the heat?

Plea for protection of nests Western grebes are a tourist attraction at Salmon Arm Bay. Three to four weeks ago you may have heard, and seen, a chorus of western grebes just east of the bandstand in the area which was filled with tall grass and water. You may have noticed that the grebes are not nesting in that area now. SABNES members monitoring the grebes’ activities counted 47 nests at that time, and about 90 grebes. Two days after that count, the rising lake water levels and possibly wind, destroyed all the nests. Some nests had contained eggs. Now, the grebes are nesting again, and likely their nests will survive as the lake water levels stabilize. But, SABNES members have seen people in kayaks and other people-powered boats going into the grebes’ nesting areas. SABNES requests that everyone ensure they are not disturbing the nesting birds. If the birds move away when approached, you are too close. Please refrain from bothering the nesting grebes, and their young. Salmon Arm Bay is one of very few places in B.C. where a western grebe colony has success raising families. Please help to make their efforts successful. Mother nature has been giving the grebes enough challenges. They don’t need more. Salmon Arm Bay Nature Enhancement Society is the custodian of the Bay and its wildlife populations for the Ministry of the Environment and Nature Trust. Please respect the grebes, and their nesting sites. Ed Dahl, SABNES

Cell phone tower should be reconsidered At the June 25 council meeting I was surprised at the general lack of concern regarding health hazards with regard to the proposed location of another cell tower in Salmon Arm. Thank you to Ken Jamieson and Marg Kentel who spoke convincingly for the need for caution about the proliferation of more and varied frequencies. I was dismayed at council’s eagerness to add to the wireless smog because children and youth are demanding this technology. I thought adults were duty-bound to protect our vulnerable children in order to ensure them a safe and worthwhile future. And news of money from Telus for a children’s park sounded like bribery to me.

I applaud Marg Kentel’s efforts to have the towers located further out of town, although the signals would be ramped up high enough to reach our core anyway. The Telus representative said that towers are monitored to ensure safe levels. But when I asked about monitoring equipment, she said she didn’t think so; her statement was based on the computer-generated projected estimate of emissions. So there’s no actual monitoring, but a “guarantee” of safety? This does not add up for me! I concur with the councillors questioning more towers in Salmon Arm when there are areas that have no cell service along the Trans-Canada. Towers in these “dead” areas

would be much more helpful for emergency calls (Telus’ stated “benefit” to our citizens). We already have sufficient power for cells phones. What’s the hidden agenda? Biological health effects (including nausea, dizziness, headaches, sleeplessness, heart palpitations, skin rashes, nerve and muscle stimulation causing Parkinson-like symptoms, Alzheimer’s, and even cancer) have been found at a mere 1/10,000 of Canada’s standards. I am thoroughly convinced that we need much more independent research before we expose our young citizens to further electromagnetic radiation. Lori Onsorge

Fishing at McGuire Lake going to be missed I often walk around McGuire Lake and am sorry that I will no longer see the young people enjoying fishing on the dock. My son and I have hooked painted turtles in the Okanagan, and last year my two grandchildren each caught one on McGuire lake. All were returned unharmed. Mr. Crowley said in earlier letters, when trout stocking was proposed, the trout couldn’t survive in the lake. When he was

proved wrong he jumped onto the painted turtle bandwagon. Yes, we have to protect our wildlife, but if a turtle is crushed by an ambulance going to/from the hospital I don’t think it would be reasonable to close the road to traffic. I believe closing McGuire Lake to fishing because one turtle was hooked and released unharmed is also unreasonable. Fishing is an excellent way to relax and

reflect on what is going on in our busy lives. Being in the outdoors is also good for our health and often sociable. I have just returned from Europe where millions of men, women and children participate in catch-and -release fishing. I imagine Mr. Crowley would like to put a stop to that – what a killjoy!

Adding a little humour to high water woes For those who are able to keep their sense of humour in this time of high-water troubles, here’s something light and funny. Top 10 Reasons to be happy about the high water: 10. There are no campers or houseboats on the beach in front. 9. The logs in the lake provide you with an

endless supply of firewood. 8. All those mooring buoys that used to ruin your view are now underwater. 7. No more mowing the lawn. 6. You always wanted that swimming pool in your back yard... 5. You can be sure the cat won’t run away. 4. Your patio table has now become a swim-

Swimmer’s itch now spreading It seems with all the flooding and high water there is a large increase in “duck itch” or “swimmer’s itch. I feel the public should be aptly warned. Here is an article from BC Health.

Bridge gets firmer foundation



By Barb Brouwer



Salmon Arm was preparing for a mammoth peace celebration, featuring parades, speeches, sports, a picnic, open air concert and finally fireworks. It was to be held this Sunday at McGuire Grove near the wharf. Charlie Chaplin was starring in Shoulder Arms at the Rex.


A tree being cut alongside the highway to Enderby, about two miles from town, knocked down hydro wires and started a forest fire. Crews worked through the afternoon to quell the blaze. The Observer reported there had been 45 outbreaks of forest fires in the Shuswap area in the preceding five days.


The chamber of commerce criticized local councils for missing opportunities to attract industry to Salmon Arm. Harry Leonard was hospitalized when a log he was sawing released and struck him across the neck. G.G. Edwardson was speaker at a dinner in Sicamous businessmen called to explore the possibilities of establishing branches of the St. John Ambulance Association.


Village and district councils were informed by B.C. Power Commission officials no rate reductions would be possible until the Watshan plant was in operation. V.J.Wood, noted artist in wood, left after 25 years residence to live on Vancouver Island.


The hospital board, this week received a $97,000 cheque from the federal government, 75 per cent of the federal share of Salmon Arm’s new hospital. A crowd of more then 2,000 turned out to welcome Queen Elizabeth and Prince Phillip who stopped for 20 minutes in Sicamous. Among those presented to the royal pair by Justice Minister E.D.Fulton were: Mr. and Mrs. J.J. Carmichael., Mayor and Mrs. Victor Nancollas, Reeve and Mrs. E.C. Turner, Enderby mayor J.B. Smith, Mr. and Mrs. Harry Stepp.

Being a good neighbour is more than just words at First United Church. Thanks to a $15,000 grant from the United Church of Canada, $5,000 in Redi-BC money through Community Futures and in-kind support from groups and individuals, the Mary Thomas Sanctuary will take a $50,000 leap forward. Church funding is the result of an idea put forward by local church member Martha Scales and enthusiastically endorsed by Kay Braby. “Meeting our Aboriginal Neighbours Again for the First Time – Ancient Secwepemc Wisdom Meets Contemporary Science” is another piece of a puzzle Mary’s descendants are trying to complete, says her daughter Bonnie, who is thrilled and emotional that her late mother’s goal of bridging the gap between aboriginal and non-aboriginal people has the backing of so many. Other goals include increasing awareness of the Salmon River delta from a First Nations perspective, including compilation of a data base of traditional knowledge and known science. GIS maps will show the location of traditional plants, medicines and provide a visual and interpretive guide. The Switzmalph Cultural Society, BC Environmental Farm Plan and Department of Fisheries and Oceans will tackle delta restoration, incorporating Secwepemc traditional knowledge and landuse management.

“What really impressed Martha and I was Bonnie and Dorothy,” says Braby. “They were not interested in looking back but looking forward.” While that may be true, Bonnie, who says it is important to look back at Mary’s life and the work she did with Turner to provide a First Nations perspective on what the delta should look like. Alex Inselberg (?) is working with Neskonlith, looking at the delta from an ecosystem perspective. “I love that because it talks about how it all fits together, and that means how we are all connected,” she says. “And the future is documenting the restoration that needs to happen as well as identifying the sanctuary and the need for future partners.” Argent, a dear friend to the Thomas family and longtime member of the Switzmalph Cultural Society adds the support from United Church is also helping the eco-cultural tourism initiative that’s going to support jobs and employment for the community. “It’s going to be an eduction centre and a tourist attraction,” she says enthusiastically. And there is need and room for many volunteers. A bag-lunch meeting will be held at noon Sunday, July 15 in the church hall. Following a project, overview, volunteers will be invited to sign up for various tasks – helping with restoration work, volunteering at workshops, technical support, traditional knowledge and science, and more. The church will hold a workshop Sept. 22 to promote healing and understanding. And a traditional gathering at the Secwepemc village site will take place for Rivers Day Sept. 30.

Special Report

Unhappy hips, elbows, necks... also welcome.

Relatives voice concern Continued from front Dina says shortly after her father began taking Seroquel, he became angry and agitated. On April 26, 2011, Johnson was reacting angrily to a painting hanging on the wall at the Loebs’ home. His reaction to Dina’s intervention was to take a swing at her. Because violence was involved, the Loeb’s 911 call was answered by police, who took Johnson to Shuswap Lake Hospital. One month later on May 26, Johnson was transferred to Bastion Place. This was against the Loebs’ wishes. The couple, and Johnson’s wife, Florence, wanted him to go to another facility but say IH told them he needed to be admitted to the secure ward at Bastion because of his worsening dementia. “They took him to hospital where they increased his meds, then he went to Bastion,� says a distraught Dina. “When he went in there, he was still walking, talking, dressing and feeding himself. Within 10 days, he wasn’t doing any of that.� In early October, a Bastion care aide reportedly told Dina her dad had been “snowed�

because he had urinated in a corner. “It’s the first time I heard the term and she (care aide) told me, ‘when they’re agitated, we give them more medication. Your dad peed in the corner so we snowed him.’� Dina says a nurse at the hospital confirmed the term and told her it is common practice. Shortly before this incident, Dina says her mom had received a call from Interior Health advising a care aide had witnessed a nurse forcefully giving her father medication and a hypodermic needle had been found in his bed. The family was told these incidents were being investigated. Doctors and a number of Bastion staff members met with the family, a session that included a teleconference link with Dina’s sister Dyan in Edmonton. “What was unique in that meeting was they admitted they were cutting back on the Seroquel,� says Bruce. “They said they didn’t know anything about ‘snowing’ and that they were proud to say their medicated clientele is less than the national average.� Adds a tearful Dina, “they said Dad was quite happy, moving around, scooting here and there, but in reality, he was stiff as a board,

mouth gaping, eyes rolled back, not knowing anyone.� In response to concerns about the syringe and medications being forced on Johnson, the Loebs were told that the nurse was on suspension and the care aide “was too young and too inexperienced to have an opinion.� “There was no news other than disciplinary measures had been taken, no satisfactory explanation of what was in it (the syringe) or who gave it,� says Bruce. While Interior Health would not speak directly to Johnson’s case, Smith said large syringes are sometimes used to measure medication, which is then transferred to a cup and administered by mouth to patients who have difficulty swallowing. IH policy dictates that if a patient refuses medicine, staff does not force the medication, but enters the information on the patient’s chart so everyone is aware of the situation. However, Dina says their family doctor told them using medication to manage patients is a provincial policy. Dr. Warren Bell, a Salmon Arm physician who was not involved in Johnson’s care, concurs with this assessment. He notes that although anti-psychotic

drugs have been banned because there has been a small but clear-cut increase in deaths among people who take them, he believes cost of care is the fundamental issue. “That’s the trade-off that is made between increased staffing and better control of patient behaviour; you don’t have staff, you have higher levels of drug use among residents,â€?

Continued from pg. 10 he says. “Staff cost a lot more than drugs, and staff are supported by unions with which the current government has a very stormy relationship, whereas drugs are made by large corporate entities with which the government has a very comfortable relationship.” Smith says staffing is standardized at all IH West sites but if a facility requires extra staff they get it. “If a facility has a circumstance, they let me know and we see that they get what they need,” she says. “I’m not on the site, so very often the approval for the funding will come after the fact. Each site is aware, they put in the care and we approve the paperwork afterward.” But Bell also points to society in general and says drugs are accepted and used freely. “Probably we need to do a big re-think in the area of psychotherapy,” he says. “When people point fingers, they tend to point elsewhere. The difficulty here is that it’s a systemic issue – nobody’s got clean hands and nobody is 100 per cent guilty.” A June 11 email to the Observer from the Ministry of Health indicates that the province is also taking the issue of anti-psychotic medication seriously. “We know anti-psy-

there who are caring, compassionate care providers and those who have no compassion and lack love in their hearts,” says Bruce.

“I would like them to clean up their act, to take some responsibility for their actions and step down on people if they have to.”


Anniversary: At Bastion Place, Florence Johnson attempts to help her husband Jack cut a cake to mark 59 years of marriage. chotic medications are one of many important tools clinicians use to help care for those with dementia,” says the email, and while the province relies on physicians to make decisions based on what is best for their patients, the ministry conducted a review into the use of antipsychotic drugs in residential care. Recommendations from the review are being utilized to develop a set of “province-wide guidelines for antipsychotic drug use in residential care to ensure clinicians have guidance on how and when to use anti-psychotic medications.” According to Health Canada, anti-psychotic medications should not be used for anyone with dementia. While their 2005 risk communication warned of the effect of anti-psychotic medications on the elderly with demen-

tia, Health Canada confirms that, “with the exception of Risperdal, no anti-psychotic (atypical or typical) is approved for use in patients with dementia in Canada, including Seroquel.” Health Canada notes the use of atypical anti-psychotic drugs in elderly patients with dementia-related psychosis is associated with a 1.6 per cent fold increase in death rate in drug-treated patients compared to those on placebo, and that most of the deaths “were related to heart-related events (e.g. heart failure, sudden death).” The Loebs have been told Johnson’s death was attributed to heart failure. Dina put in a request in mid May for a complete list of her father’s medications. She has yet to have a response. But Smith says she is surprised their request for information was not

fulfilled and suggests the family call Bastion or herself to pursue the matter. While she is uncomfortable speaking to the use of medications which are prescribed by physicians, Smith says considerable review has been conducted about their use and oversight at Bastion. The last event the Loeb family celebrated with Johnson was held at Bastion Place Dec. 19, Jack and Florence’s 59th wedding anniversary. “Unbeknownst to us, he couldn’t swallow, not even a sip of juice,” says a tearful Dina, noting staff called two days before her dad’s death to advise her he was being taken to hospital because he was no longer able to eat or drink anything. That is when she began to investigate the side effects of Seroquel and also, she says, when

Happy to have teachers contract By Cavelle Layes & Richard Rolke BLACK PRESS

Local school trustees are among those who raised their hands for a new pact with teachers. Both the North Okanagan-Shuswap and Vernon school boards were among those who voted for a twoyear contract with teachers. School District #83 board chair Bobbi Johnson, Salmon Arm chairperson, said she is glad they were able achieve a new contract, though she wouldn’t say if she is satisfied with what was ultimately decided upon. “This is what we got, and this is what we will work with,” said Johnson. “Both sides probably wanted something more, but we negotiated this, and we are just happy to have a contract.” There was no discussion on extracurricular activities in schools when districts voted last Wednesday. Johnson says all extra-curricular activities remain in control of the individual teacher. The school board does not have the ability to force teachers to volunteer their time, she says. This does not necessarily mean there will be no after-school soccer games or band classes for students. If teachers would like to donate their time, they are permitted to do so. As for next year, Johnson says all other activities will return to normal

and, come September, teachers will be meeting with parents and sending out report cards as they normally would. The district chair described the entire contract agreement process as being “very long.” “We have to find a way to do it that doesn’t take so long,” says Johnson, “but there are issues that need to be solved and that takes time.” Johnson hopes that a quicker, more efficient process can be established in the future. Bill Turanski, Vernon chairperson, says there are other things that could have been achieved and even more that should be worked towards. “We appreciate that there’s some resolution but other issues are still back there,” said Turanski, adding there are a number of things still to be negotiated. While the agreement, which has also been ratified by teachers, dealt with issues like benefits, there was no resolution on wages, class size or class composition. Turanski expects the next round of talks will be difficult because the outstanding items place financial pressures on districts, while the government is not providing any new funding. However, he is optimistic based on the new contract. “Both parties have learned something — that we can come to an agreement. Perhaps that will be an incentive,” said Turanski.


Goals established: Members of the Neskonlith, Splatsin, Little Shuswap and Adams Lake bands and School District #83 school board trustees, sign the new Aboriginal Education Enhancement Agreement on July 3.

Bands take control of goals By Cavelle Layes OBSERVER STAFF

After months of negotiations, a goal for a better future has been established. Members of each First Nation in School District #83, as well as representatives from the district’s school board, were present on July 3 for the official signing of the Local Education Agreement contract. Although there were rocky points in the process, those involved were satisfied with the result. “That kind of effort is unique,” says Dave Witt, superintendent of schools. Chief Nelson Leon of

the Adams Lake Indian Band, remarked: “It was a matter of taking control. In the past we have not had a great relation; this program has helped us turn that around and build a good, successful relationship.” The education agreement is traditionally made between school districts, all local First Nations communities and the Ministry of Education. The program was formed to help increase the number of native students who successfully graduate

high school, as well as provide better quality learning about the cultures of local bands. The main goal for the new agreement was to design a way to not only increase the rates of First Nations students who receive their high school certificate, but to also help more students earn their Dogwood certificate. Consensus on the new agreement was achieved on June 28, establishing the changes and goals to be adapted and worked towards over the next

five years. One band representative stated that in the future, he would like to see more history on residential schools being integrated into the school’s regular curriculum. Tammy Thomas, who represented the Neskonlith band during the contract signing, said, “It has been great to work as a team. It showed us some challenges, but ultimately we came out on top.” The contracts are renewed every five years.

Rare rural event: Jonathan Avis, centre, poses with, from left, Ken Walker, Mr. Justice Joel Groves, Glenn Verdurmen and Paul Danyliu, following a call to the bar ceremony July 4.

Making local legal history By Cavelle Layes OBSERVER STAFF

Jonathan Avis has spent many years studying late into the night, and even more hours working and volunteering in the legal field. For Avis, all his hard work has finally paid off. Salmon Arm’s newest addition to its legal community was honoured July 4, during a call to the bar ceremony held at the Salmon Arm Law Courts. The event was an honour in itself. The traditional ceremony is normally held in Vancouver and Victoria with a large group of people, and very rarely in smaller communities for a single person. Not even retired judge Ted Brecknell can recall the last time a ceremony of this type was held in Salmon Arm, or if it ever was. Thirty-three yearold Avis studied at Malaspina University College, where he achieved his bachelor of arts with distinction in political science and philosophy in 2007.

Avis continued his university career by attending the law program at the University of British Columbia. He began working for Verdurmen & Company Law Corporation for the summer of 2010 as a second-year law student as part of the Rural Education and Access to Lawyers program. This program helps to provide funding to companies, allowing students like Avis to gain needed experience, while offering legal services to rural areas that otherwise may have insufficient means. Avis was later asked to return article with the firm – another step in becoming a lawyer. Avis has since accepted an invitation to work with Verdurmen & Company as a fulltime lawyer. The large amount of time Avis has invested in Salmon Arm is largely what led to the request that his call to the bar ceremony be held here as well. The ceremony itself was simple, but it’s significance and meaning

were clear. Dressed in formal garb, a group of lawyers and judges were presented, as well as many of Avis’ closest supporters. Avis was required to You should be proud of our system and what it stands for. You should do whatever you can to advance it.

Justice Joel Groves SUPREME COURT take an oath, one which lawyer Ken Walker, the area’s elected “bencher,” advised spectators to pay close attention to. The oath reminded Avis that becoming a lawyer brings with it a new kind of power and many challenges. But if he makes the correct decisions he can impact the world posi-

tively, said Walker. Above all, Avis must adhere to the highest level of integrity at all times. As part of the ceremony’s tradition, Avis was presented to Justice Joel Groves, a Supreme Court judge. He bestowed some of his own advice on Avis. “You should be proud of our system and what it stands for,” said Groves. “You should do whatever you can to advance it.” He reminded Avis that from now on, he will be subjected to “unrelenting scrutiny by public and media,” and that he should endlessly work towards obtaining the “ability to disagree without being disagreeable.” Groves advised Avis that he will not always know the answers, but encouraged him to ask questions and seek advice from others in the profession. The judge told Avis to do what he can to live a healthy life and, more importantly, “be proud of yourself. You deserve it.”

Stroke awareness program wins award By Barb Brouwer OBSERVER STAFF

A Shuswap Lake Hospital team has won an award for thinking fast. FAST is an acronym for face, arms, speech and time in terms of recognizing and treating strokes. It signifies a series of symptoms health-care providers have been trained to look for and address as quickly as possible. “Does the face look uneven? Simply ask someone to smile. Does one arm drift down? Ask them to raise both arms. Does their speech sound funny? Ask them to say ‘You can’t teach an old dogs new tricks,’� says Dorothy Crandall, patient care co-ordinator for critical care, who has taken on the role of co-ordinating a new stroke initiative. T is for time, to just be aware of the time, because time is the brain and you need to get help as close to the onset as possible,� she says. Shuswap Lake Hospital has been part of a provincial initiative on stroke care since its inception last September. Communities from every health authority have been involved with the goal of bringing people together and making them more aware – and sharing the information. “We work in our own sites but share with all members of the initiative in order to bring great care to all British Columbians,� says


Identifying symptoms: Dorothy Crandall, RN, with some of the Heart and Stroke materials available for patients at Shuswap Lake Hospital. Crandall. “Our team is a physician, two nurse educators and two RNs.� Each five-person team belongs to a provincial collaborative, with teams looking at how improvements can be made at their own sites then sharing the results with the other teams. “In Shuswap Lake, we identified a need for a quick-trigger system in triage,� says Crandall, noting a large poster describing the symptoms of stroke hangs on a wall in the triage section of the emergency ward. There are two types of strokes and discerning which is which is essential to the kind of

treatment a person receives. Clot-busting drugs can save lives and reduce damage to people with thrombolytic strokes, but only within a few hours of the initial onset, says Crandall. In order to give stroke victims the best care possible, Crandall says family members are encouraged to go to the hospital with the patient in order to provide information about when the person appeared to be normal. “The information can change when stress is reduced,� says Crandall, noting that people in crisis may call 911 and in their panic, forget to provide a critical

piece of information – something that may come to them once their loved one is in care. As well as training a team of stroke-savvy nurses in triage, the team is taking stroke education to other floors in the form of moveable boards containing vital information – information that is also being provided to local doctors’ offices. “We’re trying to make the public aware so they know the symptoms, for themselves and for anyone else they may be with,â€? says Crandall. These include: • Weakness – a sudden loss of strength or feeling in the face, arm or leg, even if it’s temporary. • Sudden trouble speaking or understanding, or confusion, even if it’s temporary • Sudden trouble with vision, even if it’s temporary. • Sudden severe and unusual headache. • Sudden loss of balance – especially with any of the above symptoms. • Dizziness “When we live in rural areas, it’s the challenge of getting someone here and then getting them to Royal Inland,â€? she says. Shuswap patients, who can benefit from the treatment, are sent to Kamloops where the clot-busting drugs are administered under the direction of a neurologist, something Salmon Arm does not have at this time.

Good Luck! Athletes, Coaches, and OfďŹ cials from the Thompson-Okanagan (Zone 2) will be at the Surrey 2012 BC Summer Games July 19-22 Follow the results at

Equally important is the need for specialized care following administration of the drug, says Crandall. Crandall would also like to get the word out that Royal Inland Hospital operates a Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA) clinic for people who have “mini

strokes� that resolve themselves. People who have had a TIA can go to the clinic for assessment in terms of risks for a fullblown stroke and how to avoid having one. Crandall says the team has received a lot of positive feedback – including a provincial






award for making the most significant improvement of all participating teams. “We work hard and we’ve done a lot of staff education,� she says, emphasizing again, “from attack to treatment it’s how to get the best care as fast as possible.�

Suggestions for healthy barbecue meals bris that could stick to your food. • Cut off and discard badly charred pieces of meat. • Precook meat slightly (such as microwav-


Serena Caner Summer has arrived and for many people this means barbecue season. Barbecuing is easy, tasty and does not heat up your house. Unfortunately, eating too many barbecued meats may have some health risks. Grilling protein foods such as meat and fish creates two kinds of chemical compounds that may contribute to cancer: heterocyclic amines (HCAs) and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs). HCAs are created in meat when it’s cooked at a high temperature. While frying and broiling produce these chemicals as well, charred barbecued meat contains the most HCAs. The second type of compound, PAHs, are formed when juices from the meat drip onto the hot coals and create smoke. This smoke contains carcinogens, which can then be deposited onto the surface of meat. In animal studies, both HCAs and PAHs have been shown to cause cancer in organs including the stomach, colon, liver and skin. There are also some observational studies in humans showing a link between consuming a lot of grilled and welldone meats with cancer. I know what you are thinking… what doesn’t cause cancer these days? Likely, the small cancer risk associated with grilling meat doesn’t mean you need to forgo hamburgers, hot dogs and steaks altogether, but like all good things, eat in moderation. You may also want to consider the following tips: • Clean your grill before cooking – this will

remove any charred de-

ing them for a minute) before grilling – this reduces the amount of time the food is on the grill and allows some of the juices to drain, decreasing PAHs.

• Marinate your meat – acids such as vinegar or lemon act as shield, preventing PAHs from sticking. However sugary marinades, such as barbecue sauce, should

only be added during the last minute or two as they encourage charring. • Grill vegetables or fruits instead of meat – plant foods don’t create

carcinogens when they char. - Serena Caner is a registered dietician who works at Shuswap Lake General Hospital.

Spaces remain for India trip While crowds of Shuswap moviegoers were attending sold out showings of The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel and imagining their own adventure in India, a group of Salmon Arm students were contemplating their own journey to that Asian destination. On Dec 16, Salmon Arm Secondary students are embarking on the school district’s third field trip to India. Over 19 days, they will cover the north of India from west to east, from camel trekking in Rajasthan’s Thar Desert to a dawn boat ride on the Ganges, to the ancient Sun Temple of Konark. As in the movie, there will be many exotic moments, but this is not a trip designed for ease or

for the average tourist. It’s a back-packer styled adventure during which the participants will stay in budget lodging and travel in a second-class sleeper on the train. Volunteering at Mother Teresa’s Home For The Dying in Calcutta and visiting lepers in Varanasi are among the many physical and emotional challenges to be encountered. Overall, the trip is an absorbing and memorable experience that lasts a lifetime. There are currently three spaces left open for adults. The cost is $3,600, which can be spread over five installments. This covers air, train, lodging, food and every expense in India. For information, contact 250-832-6682.

Selects earn bronze

X Games: Chantelle Bykerk, on right, stands on the winners’ podium in Los Angeles after earning her bronze medal.

Extreme champion By Cavelle Layes OBSERVER STAFF

This time last year, the idea of attending the X Games was just a dream. Now, just one year later, Chantelle Bykerk has returned home with a bronze metal. Bykerk, 20, has been competing in various forms of motocross races since she was 13. For her, competing in the X Games has always been the ultimate dream. In an interview last year, Bykerk explained that for extreme sports, the X Games is the equivalent of the Olympics. Bykerk had always wanted the chance to compete in the Games, but she decided to make it her official goal last year. The young athlete was able to solidify her place in the X Games Enduro Cross race after the first round

of qualifiers held in Las Vegas. A total of only 10 competitors were allowed to advance to the Games, ranging from age 15 to 40. Bykerk, the third youngest, says that as long as you are fast enough, you can compete. Enduro racing requires competitors to use a variety of skills and balance to compete. “I race off-road, enduros and enduro cross. Enduro Cross is definitely the hardest, because it is the most physical out of all three,” she says. Bykerk comes from a racing family. She got into the sport after going to many of her brothers’ competitions. “My parents just decided to get me a bike as well,” says Bykerk. It was her boyfriend, however, who got her into enduro racing. “He raced in them, and I would See Bykerk on page A21

After four days of soccer against tough competition in high temperatures, all the effort paid off. The Shuswap FC U16 boys came home with bronze medals from the 2012 BC Soccer B Cup Provincial Championships in Aldergrove. From July 5 to 8, the local boys won three games and lost one, with the loss to the eventual gold medal winner, GAC Extreme from Surrey. That game was a heartbreaker for the local squad, with the teams tied at 1-1 up until the final two minutes. Shuswap dominated possession in the second half of the game, frustrating GAC, but a bullet of a free kick just outside the 18-yard box gave the Extreme a 2-1 win. In other games, the Selects defeated the Terrace Kermodies 2-0, the hometown Aldergrove Vipers 2-1 and, in the bronze medal game, the Nelson Selects 1-0. Coach Dave Knight was extremely proud of the team’s performance.

Great job: U16 Shuswap Selects keeper Morgan Crandlemire receives congratulations and his bronze medal in Aldergrove from coach Dave Knight and assistant coach Ken Kantymir. “We worked hard all year at our possession game and it really paid off. The boys came to the tournament with the right attitude, knowing what our game plan was and executing it as best we could.” Assistant coach is

Ken Kantymir and team members are: Chad Baker, Westlee Bischoff, Eric Brock, Nick Chesney, keeper Morgan Crandlemire, Quinton Fahlman, Zach Friedenberger, Micah Gunn, Nathan Hawe, Lachlan Hicks,

Jacob New, Nate Kantymir, Adam Luchkanych, Kyle Nicholson, Shea Smith and Dylan Staal. To qualify for the Provincials, the team took the Thompson Okanagan league championship.

Marshall aims for Olympics By Cavelle Layes OBSERVER STAFF

She has been around the world, from Europe to Alaska, but for now, Salmon Arm’s Alysson Marshall is happy to be home with friends, family and local supporters. Marshall has been rigorously training all over the world to prepare herself for the Olympic qualifiers in cross-country skiing. “I just got back from two weeks of training in Anchorage, Alaska with the North America Women’s Training Alliance,” says Marshall. Marshall trained steadily with a group of women from Canada, Alaska and other U.S. states, as well as Finland. Training included one part dryland training, where the group used roller blades and travelled long distances at high speeds and alternating intensities, as well as glacier training, which allowed them to ski almost from the door of the building where they stayed. While competitions only run from November to March, Marshall explained, training carries on for 11 months of the year. “April is the only month I kind of get off,” she says. “I still train, but it is not official training. It doesn’t last as long and it is more fun.”

Ted United shuts out opponents Ted United shut out the Goplen Drillers and the Controllers with scores of 10-0 and 7-0, respectively, in recent soccer action. Scoring against Goplen was Cathy Bartsch with three goals, Kim Turner, Heidi Berry and Sue Doray with two, and Emily Styles with a single. Ingrid Belt got the shutout. Goals against the Controllers came from Kyla Sherman and Sue Doray, two each, and singles from Cathy Bartsch, Kim Turner and Heidi Berry. Cathy Bartsch and Linda Yawney shared the shutout.

Venice without even stopping,” she laughs. Marshall believes this allows her to see the real side of the places she is visiting, not just the tourist’s view. She explains, “You’ve never experienced Italy until you are looked after by an Italian mom for a week.” Like many athletes, Marshall has dreamed of competing in the Olympics but admits she set her sights on the smaller goals first. “I was always just trying for the next thing, to beat the next level, but the Olympics has always been

a dream in the back of my mind,” she says. Marshall may soon find out if she will get her chance to compete in the 2014 Winter Olympics in Russia. “If I had really stellar World Cup results, that might be enough to qualify me. But I am anticipating to qualify during the 2013 qualifying season.” The official requirements for Team Canada prospects have not yet been released. For now, she is taking a few days to relax with family and meet with local supporters. On July 5, Marshall

took part in a fundraiser in Salmon Arm put on by Lakeside Insurance. The event, which featured a hot-dog barbecue as well a raffle for a number prizes including skis and an autographed picture of Marshall, was put on to help raise money for her training and lodging throughout the year. “The government does provide some money,” says Marshall, “but it is not enough to pay for everything. It is expensive.” The event proved to be a success, bringing in $2,225.

The rest of the year Marshall has pre-set, specially planned, training programs which require about four hours a day. “Some days it is longer, others it is shorter; they switch it up lots.” Marshall explains how she will go through two weeks of intense training with long hours, followed by a week with a more laid-back style. While Marshall’s parents did not compete, her grandparents did. This, she says, is part of what sparked her interest in competitive skiing. Marshall began competing at just fourand-a-half years old. She describes how her parents loved the sport, and made sure to take her out every weekend. “I just kept going.” When asked why she stuck with it, she says: “I really just enjoy the entire lifestyle. My job is to spend time outside, hiking and skiing and doing these fun things. The opportunities and experiences it has provided me are amazing.” Through competing and training, Marshall has travelled through central Europe, Scandinavia and across Canada. While she doesn’t get to see the major cities, she gets plenty of time to get to know the smaller towns and the people within them. “I drove right through

to jump over, as well as large boulders and other rocks scattered around the corners. A concrete pool area is built and then filled with water, creating a makeshift pond. Bikers must make their way across a ‘fallen’ tree trunk to get over the body of water. Bykerk also describes other obstacles such as tractor tires laid out around the course. Despite the many difficulties hidden within

the track, event officials say on their website that Bykerk put in an outstanding effort, and was definitely a worthy contender. The race was tight, with Bykerk coming in a close third behind U.S. riders, Maria Forsberg, who came in first, and Louise Forsley, who took second place. The young athlete is happy to have made it as far as she did. “It was so overwhelming there because there

were so many people around. It was just an amazing opportunity to even compete, and then getting bronze was just super cool.” Winning third automatically gives Bykerk a chance to compete in the 2013 X Games. Bykerk has set her sights even higher and is aiming for gold. However, for the time being, her goal is to defend her Canadian title. Bykerk is in the middle of a Canadian series,

the winner of which will be named national champion. At the first competition in Vernon this past weekend, Bykerk came in second in the first race, followed by an excellent win in the second. She will be competing in two more races this weekend in Blairmore, Alta. The overall winner of these races will determine who will take home the Western Canada plate.

Shuswap Association for Rowing and Paddling members Michelle and Randy Brooks head out on Shuswap Lake Sunday afternoon for a practice/ training run.

Cooper heads to nationals The Shuswap Swimming Team sent three swimmers to Richmond this past weekend to attend the Swim BC AAA Provincial Long Course Championships. The meet was host to 43 teams from around B.C. and the Yukon Territory with a couple of international swimmers too. This was the final provincial competition of the season with more than 650 swimmers, ranging from those who have

attained only one AAA provincial time standard, right up to those swimmers competing at the Canadian senior national level. The three Shuswap Swimming Team swimmers raced well, with two of the three advancing to the finals, and seven team records falling. On the girls side, Bree Cooper, 14, after being shut out of the finals at the Short Course AAA provincials back in March 2012, ad-

vanced to the finals in both the 14-year-old girls 50-metre freestyle and the 100-m butterfly races, ending up in 8th place in both events, and broke team records in both the 100-m butterfly and 100-m breaststroke. Cooper was using this meet as a spring board to launch her with a bit more racing experience as she heads towards the Age Group National Championships later this month. On the boys side,

Ty Webster-Locke, 12, was at his first AAA provincial meet, and raced really well. He advanced to the finals in the 12-year-old boys 50-m freestyle, placing 7th and breaking the team records in both the 50-m and 400-m freestyle events. Also on the boys side was Jake Kitchen, 18, who was at only his third-ever long course competition. He swam well at the competition, breaking team records in

July Specials


Tough contest: Laura Stacer controls the ball while Renae Graham and Steph Jetty look on, ready to provide support.

Exceptional play for Stealth The Shuswap Girls U18 Stealth team had a strong provincial championships tournament. Their first game was against Surrey’s CCB Elite team who were eventually crowned champions. Though it was a tight game and tied at half-time, CCB picked up a goal halfway through the second half and then an insurance goal five minutes from full time when the Shuswap girls were pushing forward. Against the Kootenay Rovers, Shuswap came from behind with a dominant second half but

the game ended in a 1-1 tie. The game against their arch rivals, Kelowna United, was a very tense one that was tied at zeroes until the referee awarded Kelowna a penalty shot late in the contest, which gave them a 1-0 victory. The final game was against Cliffe Avenue United from Burnaby. Shuswap carried the play all game but, in the final 20 minutes, Cliffe Avenue managed two counter attacks to tie it up with less than a minute left. The game went to penalty kicks and Cliffe Avenue came away

with the win. Coach Ian McLellan said Shuswap played very well throughout the tournament and used exceptional team play to compete strongly in every game. “Most of the girls on this team have been together since U12 and have developed into a very tight family, and they competed very strongly against teams from much bigger communities,” he said. “These bigger clubs really had to compete hard for any points against us.”


Aces hold own with B.C.’s best After a weekend in Sooke at the Provincial championships, the Salmon Arm Aces Women’s Fastpitch team finished a very respectable eighth in the province. In Game 1 Friday, the Aces defeated the Vancouver Vipers 9-1. In a second game Friday, Nanaimo Nitro was victorious in a 12-6 contest. On Saturday Salmon Arm came back to defeat Ridge Meadows Dynomite 18-4, with Carlee DeBoer claiming a grand slam. Next was a tight 8-6 loss to the Sooke Hustlers. In the playoffs Saturday, the Aces were outdone 11-0 by the formidable Fleetwood Outlaws. On Sunday, it was a close one with Port Moody Magic claiming a 4-2 win. In the Skills Competition, Kristen Sherlock clocked a 50-mph fastpitch, with the eventual winner clocked at 53

mph. Coached by Bill Coldwell and assistant coaches Louis Chouinard and Brian Loucks, team members are Brit Chouinard, Ta-

mara Goodridge, Cass Loucks, Donnane Cline, Kristin Sherlock, Kristen Houseman, Carlee DeBoer, Shyla Gibb, Mel Darbyshire, Anna Young, Bradi Ready,

Sipping for a good cause By Barb Brouwer OBSERVER STAFF

glass of wine and thou could make a big difference in the lives of thousands of children in Kenya and Ecuador. Sip wine, sample appetizers and enjoy the music of Sandy Cameron and Babalu in the beautiful surroundings of Granite Creek Estate Wines. Shuswap Rotary Club is hosting a fundraising garden party at the Tappen winery Sunday, July 14 to benefit the annual Ecuador Dental Mission and the African Barani School Lunch Program. Shuswap Rotary Club member Mike Boudreau accompanied five OUC Okanagan students to Kenya last year, where he connected with local Rotary clubs to see how area youths could be supported. That led him to Barani Primary School, in the small rural village of Kanamai, just north of Mombassa where he taught Grade 8 math for two weeks. Many of the children were not only without lunch, they hadn’t had breakfast, says Boudreau, noting many were lucky to get one meal a day. “Seeing an emaciated child on TV is totally different from standing face-to-face with that child,” he says. “It is heart-wrenching that we can be so oblivious of the need and do little about it when we have so much in comparison.” When he departed Kana-


mai, Boudreau left $100, a sum that fed 25 kids for more than a month. He shared his experience with Shuswap Rotary and the club began feeding some 100 children in the school that has 1,200 students. “Everybody in the club pitched in $5 a week and we got donations from friends,” he says, noting the club was also responsible for restoring safe running water to the school. “So we’re feeding up to 200 a day now and we sent money over for a new pump, tank platform and water tank.” Another Shuswap Rotary member, dentist Gene Tymkiw also believes in humanitarian service and uses Rotary connections in Ecuador to provide dental care to those who would otherwise do without treatment. He and assistant Donna Cook made their second visit to Ecuador in January, where they provided necessary dental care to hospital patients awaiting surgery before heading out to area schools. This year, Tymkiw and Cook treated about 200 people in the South American country. “We spent five working days in five different schools,” says Cook. “And we probably saw about 40 patients in hospital before they had surgery for hips and knees.” Supported by Shuswap Rotary and Rotary Clubs in Edmonton, the team Tymkiw and Cook travel with consists of about 55 people, including orthopedic surgeons,

nurses, anesthetists, physicians and dentists. Sunday’s garden party crew will be just as talented and devoted to helping those less fortunate but in a different way. Well-known sax-man Sandy Cameron and his Babalu crew include Jim Johnson on keyboard, Jeremy Tymkiw on drums, Jeremy Dyck on bass and the vocals of Adrianna Sharan, who does the arranging for the band. “They are unbloodybelievable,” raves Gene. “When Sharan sings Besame Mucho, well, like Sandy says ‘I almost want to stop blowing my horn so she’d kiss me.” Granite Creek Estate Wines is a family owned and operated winery and vineyard whose wines produced from 100-per cent B.C. grapes on-site at the winery Granite Creek Estate Wines is located at 2302 Skimikin Road in Tappen. The fundraising garden party takes place from 2 to 5 p.m. Tickets are $25 and include one glass of wine and appetizers. Tickets are available at Gene Tymkiw’s dental office at 320 Alexander St. or call 250-8329915.

Humanitarian aid: Top, students of Barani Primary School receive meals. Above, dentist Gene Tymkiw provides care in Ecuador.

Legends come to life First Nations stories will come to life on the Shuswap Theatre stage next week in Legend. The production is a collaboration between the theatre society and the Switzmalph Cultural Society. Laughingly describing himself as being typecast, Ken Thomas, Neskonlith Band member and grandson of beloved late elder Mary, will reprise his coyote role. It is a character adopted about a decade ago and one that caught the eye of longtime theatre director and actor James Bowlby at last year’s River’s Day celebration at the Mary Thomas Sanctuary site just west of town. “He said let’s do a project next year,” says Thomas, noting he often gets requests that don’t go much farther than the asking. “But James persevered, sending emails all winter and come spring, he said I have the theatre booked, we’re doing a summer show.” Legend the story is about two characters – a young boy and a young girl who go on a journey. “They’ve been chosen by the Old One – Kelkupki, or the Great Chief – who symbolize the Creator or God, be-

cause He sees potential in them,” says Thomas, noting the pair symbolize the youth of the world. The journey includes treasured stories from Secwepemc, Plains Indians, Hopi and Aesop Fables. From the Hopi comes the tale of the rainbow warriors, those who signify multi-cultural peoples – races mixing together and standing in protection of Mother Earth, Thomas says. “It’s like the song Somewhere Over the Rainbow – it’s all of us together,” he adds. “We tried to use a lot of humour to not make the message too heavyhanded. The last thing we want is for people to walk away going ‘Holy, that was preachy.’” Bowlby, has known 39-year-old Ken since he was in a Grade 10 production of Romeo and Juliet at JL Jackson and saw he enjoyed acting. “I always wanted to do something to appreciate the local culture,” he says, noting that while natives may be our close neighbours, their culture is often a world away. “It should be appreciated and known by us.” Bowlby says his collaboration with Thomas has included a lot of


Tales that teach: Ken Thomas will bring Secwepemc legends to the stage. laughter and ready sharing of ideas. “We just accepted each other and knew what we were wanting to do,” he says, noting from backstage to cast – many of whom are Thomas family members – to sets, costumes and publicity, work on the production has been almost seamless. Thomas, as coyote, will welcome the audience at the official opening of this year’s Roots and Blues Fes-

tival, which runs Aug. 17 to 19, and will introduce Coyote to children twice daily in the Kid’s Zone. Legend opens July 19 and will run Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m., with matinees on Sundays at 1:30 p.m. There will be no shows on the weekend of Roots and Blues. Tickets for Legend are $30 for a family of four, $12 for adults, $10 for seniors and $7 for students.

Very popular in its debut year, the program will begin in the Kingfisher community. Join an interpretive hike at Enderby Cliffs Provincial Park, get refuelled by a communityprepared meal and start dancing to the rocking world/jazz/funk sounds and vigorous grooves of Earthbound. Next stop on the outreach map is Mara.

Spend the third day in Seymour Arm and its surroundings at the north end of the Shuswap. Visit the beautiful Albas Falls during an interpretive hike, fill your stomach before the Shuffle Demons and the six-piece Cuban band Septeto Santiaguero start playing their tunes at the Don Fink Memorial Park. The fourth route will travel through Blind Bay. Soak in the scenic views and interesting stories of the western arm of Shuswap Lake

Music history in story and song By Barb Brouwer OBSERVER STAFF

Rolling, rolling, rolling. The Hayride keeps on rolling. And it’s rolling back onto a Salmon Arm stage this Friday with Elvis, Hank Williams, Patsy Cline and Roy Orbison, as well as songs by many of the great country artists such as Johnny Cash, Jim Reeves, Ray Price and Eddy Arnold. The show filled halls in four Alberta venues in May with the same great audience response that has been given by B.C. audiences. “We normally don’t do a summer show, but you’ve been asking for it and we’re giving it to you,” says Hayride creator and producer Lori Risling. Patrick Ryley performs as Hank Williams, Andrea Anderson as Patsy Cline and Gil Risling as Roy Orbison. Also sharing their substantial talent are William Brookfield on double keyboard and vocals and Mike Melnichuk on stand-up base and electric guitar. And the “cowboys” will gather round the fire. New to this, the third version of the show, is Adam Fitzpatrick, making the music and the moves of Elvis Presley. If you liked him, and many did, don’t miss his performance this week because he may not be in show num-

High on country: Patrick Ryley, Andrea Anderson, Adam Fitzpatrick and Gil Risling will be back in the auditorium Friday. ber 4 that rolls onto the stage in the fall. “Our Elvis from Penticton, won an Elvis Tribute Competition in California and that has allowed him to compete in the ‘Ultimate Elvis’ competition in Memphis in August,” says Risling. “There will be 24 other Elvis Tribute Artists from around the world vying for this prestigious title. This is a huge accomplishment and we are so excited that Adam can be a part of our Salmon Arm

show before he heads to Memphis.” Known as the Cradle of the Stars, the Louisiana Hayride was established in 1948. It was a live show similar to the Grand Ole Opry and was performed by as-yetunknown stars at the Shreveport Municipal Auditorium and broadcast over KWKH radio. Risling and crew are about to rehearse show #4, which will premiere in Salmon Arm with all new material in the fall.

“We will have a new character, which the audience will find quite entertaining – and that’s all I’ll say,” she laughs. “There will be four artists we haven’t featured before and songs by the Everly Brothers, Flatt & Scruggs and Loretta Lynn. And the “cowboys” will be back by popular demand.” The Louisiana Hayride Show kicks off at 7:30 p.m. Friday, July 13 at the SASCU Rec Centre. Tickets are available at Touch’A Texas and Wearabouts.

Horoscope ARIES (March 21 - April 19): Your seemingly neverending cycle of change and self-honesty now becomes more reflective. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re steadily moving towards a life that feels like a genuine expression of your soul. You realize now, this isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just an external process, but takes place from the inside out. TAURUS (April 20 - May 20): You can sense changes are brewing, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s harder to put your finger on what it will mean for your future. You can see the light on the other side is shining dollar signs. This week, you make quick moves towards prosperity. GEMINI (May 21 - June 20): Jupiter and Mars are slowly positioning themselves to help you understand what would make you most happy, and to deliver a tangible blessing. This week, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll feel the hope and anticipation build in your heart. Friends help keep your momentum up. CANCER (June 21 - July 22): â&#x20AC;&#x153;Be the person you dream to be.â&#x20AC;? What if the person you wish to be is uncertain? The path to that person will move you in another direction. Relax on your demands of yourself and of the Universe. A better vision is trying to come forward now. Ask as much as you listen. LEO (July 23 - August 22): You notice finances slowly reaching a calmer pace, as expenses steady. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be able to turn your attention on other things, like fun and friendship. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re considering your life and the values you have been learning along the way. Choose an interpretation that brings peace. VIRGO (August 23 - September 22): In the coming months, you should notice an upswing in your career. No matter what your relationship to bosses or authority figures has been in the past, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see you as a perfect match for bigger opportunities. The Universe will give you a glimpse now. #199 â&#x20AC;˘ How to play: Complete the grid so every row, column and 3x3 box contains every digit from 1 to 9 inclusively. (Solution on B2).

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22): Those in the throw of new love are said to be foolish. The urgency of attraction has a way of suspending rational senses. This might be your fear now, but is love not worth the risk of looking silly? You now demonstrate that you believe itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a risk worth taking. SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21): Money is available to you from a variety of sources. Cast your net wide, asking questions along the way. You qualify for funding youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not yet aware of. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s your own insecurity and pride that might keep you from asking. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21): As Venus went back and forth in the sky, you were asked to consider the future of a bond. Now, as she gains speed in her forward moves, you see the way to resolve any residual uncomfortable feelings. Believe and expand your definition of love. CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19): You might feel at a consequential junction of your life. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in the midst of powerful times and you feel the impulse to make adjustments. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s part of a larger process that will move you in an overall more authentic direction. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t try to do it all at once. AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18): The Herschels were a brother sister duo, performing at small venues. In their downtime, they loved documenting the sky. Their passion led to the discovery of Uranus and a place in history. Have your day-job, but your passion is where your fortune is, especially now. PISCES (February 19 - March 20): Mercury retrogrades this week, asking you to look at a work opportunity more closely. New information provides a better picture, but take a few weeks before you act. The wildest possibilities in money are more fun, but youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re also considering its practicality.


Anytime. Anywhere.

MacNUTT, ANITA November 4, 1923 - July 4, 2012 “Because of your smile you make life more beautiful.” ~ Thich Nhat Hanh With deep sadness our family announces the death of Anita at Vancouver General Hospital. She passed peacefully in the loving presence of her family and will be deeply missed. Anita is pre-deceased by: her husband Harry, her parents Fred and Elsie Nelson, her sister Rosemary and her grandson Stewart. She is survived by her daughters: Niedy (Aaron and great grandson Aiden), Linda and Wayne (Michael & Stephen), Donna (Hunter), Susan and Jerry (Taylor, Courtney & Megan and great grandson Quinton), her son Stewart and Deborah (Martin and Randi-Leigh & Nick and great grandson Dominick) and her brother Jim and Irene Nelson (James & Irma and Diana). Anita was born in Everett, Washington, raised in Vancouver and moved to Prince George with the family in 1958. It was there she began her career with children as a kindergarten teacher and returned to college to gain her early childhood education certificate. Following a family move to Kamloops she opened a day care centre and subsequently served as a Kamloops school trustee for four years. She also became known for her beautiful egg work, a hobby turned business. She and Harry retired to Sorrento and were amongst the founding members of the Sorrento OAPO and served as council members together. Transcending the generations Anita also went on to help found the Sorrento Pre- School located in the Seniors Centre. Their life in Sorrento was made all the richer in the company of dear friends. In 2001, shortly after the death of her husband she returned to Vancouver and continued her community involvement, her egg work and activities with new friends and family. Anita’s love of life was a gift that infused her family, her work with children, and everyone whose life she touched. The family would like to thank the physicians, nurses, respiratory therapists and pastoral care on Ward 10C/D, Centennial Pavilion for their wonderful sense of compassion combined with their skillful professionalism. You gave our hearts and souls freedom to be fully present with her. A memorial service will be held in her honour at St. Mary’s Anglican/United Church, 1144 TransCanada Highway, Sorrento, BC, July 14, Saturday, at 4:00 PM. A reception at the church will follow the service and all are welcome. Flowers can be delivered to the church or donations may be made to the Sorrento PreSchool or to a charity of your choice.

Public invited to share their hair for kids By Cavelle Layes

Her generosity surpasses many, even at a young age. While many people might be preparing for the beach, one Salmon Arm resident is kicking off her summer with a big dose of generosity. Seventeen-year-old Carlie Earl has just finished Grade 11, and she has decided to celebrate summer by shaving her head in the name of love. On July 19, Earl will be heading to BAR Salon in Salmon Arm to donate her own hair as well as attempt to raise at least $500 for Locks of Love. Locks of Love is a non-profit organization that makes wigs for young people under the age of 21, who suffer from diseases that cause hair loss, but cannot afford to buy wigs. This is not the first time Earl has made such a generous act of kindness. The first time she decided to shave her head was back in Grade 7 after she saw the impact cancer had on her own family. “Two of my grandparents have had cancer,” said Earl. “Luckily, neither of them had to lose their hair, but it made me realize that it can have an effect on anyone’s life. I know if I had a hair loss disease I would hope that someone would donate

For the cause: Carlie Earl will shave her head for children with illnesses on July 19. The public is invited to BAR Salon for a haircut that day, with payment also going to the nonprofit Locks of Love. their hair so I could get a wig.” Earl said she has been going to see Scott Gerow, a stylist at BAR Salons, since her mom began taking her when she was little. Gerow was also the stylist who shaved her hair for her donation four years ago. It was because of this that Earl decided that Gerow should have the honour of cutting it this time as well. With the help of Gerow, Earl has organized a way for Salmon Arm residents to do their part as well. For one day only, Gerow will be donating his

Learn to compost The Columbia Shuswap Regional District (CSRD) will offer a master composting program in Salmon Arm on July 14. “The program is designed to train people to teach and help other people to compost,” says waste reduction facilitator Carmen Fennell,, adding that Golden residents who recently took a similar program were very positive. The daylong program gives participants in-depth information

in a classroom-type setting and includes a hands-on component. The training is free and participants will receive a free Earth Machine composter. However, participants are asked, in return, to spend 35 hours within the next two years promoting composting. The program takes place at the CSRD boardroom at 781 Marine Park Dr. Lunch will be provided. For more information, call Fennell at 250-833-5936.

time to raise additional money for Locks of Love by providing $35 hair cuts, every cent of which will be donated to the charity. Earl will be at the salon from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m. to greet and meet with those helping her reach her goal. Earl


also notes that no appointments are needed throughout the day. Anyone from the public can simply pop in and receive a hair cut. At 4:30 p.m. Earl is scheduled to get her own head completely shaved. If anyone else would

like to donate their hair to the charity, they are more than welcome to do so. Earl hopes to be graduating from high school this coming year. This means that events such as prom, a time when girls traditionally get dressed up in their fin-

est with their hair and makeup at their best, are set to mark the milestone ahead. Shaving her head close to these events, however, doesn’t seem to bother Earl in the least. “Hair will grow back,” she says.

If anyone would like to donate money to Earl’s cause, but will not be able to make it to the salon on July 19, they can drop their money off with Gerow at BAR Salon, located at 171B Hudson Ave. in Salmon Arm.

A bed of many colours… Where does one start? The gorgeous planters in the laneway overflowing with petunias, bacopa, daisies and geraniums are a great welcome. Alongside the home many large hostas take residence. The backyard is a myriad of colour. White, red and peach roses mark the start of one bed along with lupins, lilies, and Russian sage. Two central curved flower beds are planted with roses, surrounded by alyssum. The raised beds contain huge onions, swiss chard, broccoli and potatoes. Masses of raspberries are going to offer a bumper crop! The trellised fence to the side of the property is bordered by lilies & climbing vines alongside a stunning pink climbing rose. Pansies mixed with alyssum make a beautiful edging for yet another bed. The mock orange finishes this garden like a scrumptious dessert. — By Sherry & Laura, Salmon Arm Observer

Do you know someone whose garden goes above and beyond? Do you think your garden is a cut above? Don’t be shy! Let us know the owner’s name, address and phone number! The garden does not have to be huge or elaborate. It could be on a balcony or a front yard or whatever space you have, as long as it is unique.
