Federated sale will retain jobs By Martha Wickett MARKET NEWS STAFF

It isn’t bringing the sawmill back, but it will keep more than 300 jobs. 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.

The advantages, according to those involved are: 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. It will likely be another two months at least before

the transaction is finalized. “It’s an excellent opportunity for both Gorman and Federated Cooperatives,” said Darrell Embley, Federated’s vice-president 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

On Saturday, July 7, Salmon Arm RCMP discovered a cache of stolen property in Tappen, much of it stolen from Kelowna. Police report they located four stolen vehicles, two stolen trailers, several stolen pieces of heavy equipment and various other items at a property in the 4100 block of Eldon Frontage Road. The majority of the items, including three of the stolen vehicles, were found to have been stolen out of Kelowna. Four males were found on site and were detained for a short period before being released. Police say the thefts are still under investigation and charges are expected.

A Salmon Arm resident was one of four people injured in a two-vehicle collision Tuesday afternoon near Sicamous. The collision occurred June 10, about three kilometres east of Sicamous on the Trans-Canada Higway. Sicamous RCMP Sgt. Carl Vinet says an eastbound vehicle carrying two Toronto residents crossed the centre line and drove head on into a westbound vehicle carrying the Salmon Arm resident as well as a resident of Calgary. “It seems they had broken bones and severe bruising, but no injuries have been reported as life threatening,” said Vinet. “We did call in a reconstructionist to the scene because of the seriousness of the accident, and two of the four people (one from each vehicle) had to be extricated with the assistance of highway rescue.” The highway was temporarily reduced to single-lane, alternating traffic.

Input sought on boundary shifts By Richard Rolke BLACK PRESS

Falkland may get the federal boot. The Federal Electoral Boundaries Commission is proposing Falkland leave the OkanaganShuswap riding and be put into a new riding with downtown Kelowna, Summerland, Merritt, Logan Lake and Princeton. “It’s a bit of a joke,” said René Talbot, Falkland’s Columbia-Shuswap Regional District director. Talbot points out that his area is linked to Salmon Arm through the CSRD and its secondary students go to school in Armstrong. “Ninety per cent of the people shop in Vernon and they work in Vernon,” he said, adding there are no social and economic connections to the towns in the proposed Central Okanagan-Coquihalla riding. “It doesn’t make sense to put us in with Summerland and Kelowna.” Talbot is concerned his community would not have easily accessible representation. “Where would our MP be located? If you wanted to have a meeting with their office staff, you’d have to drive to Kelowna or where ever they are located,” he said. Talbot will be launching a formal protest of the proposal and he is urging residents to do the same. “The boundary should be left as it is,” he said. Other proposed changes to Okanagan-Shuswap would include moving the area between Blind Bay and Chase into Central OkanaganCoquihalla and Chase into Kamloops-Thompson-Cariboo. Okanagan-Shuswap — which could become known as North Okanagan-Shuswap — would see its population go from 121,062 to 112,399. The average sought for each riding is 104,763. Canada’s electoral districts are reviewed every 10 years by independent commissions to account for shifts and growth in the population. “It’s a challenge when you come to the rural areas of B.C.,” said Stewart Ladyman, with the Electoral Boundaries Commission and a former Vernon resident. “There’s decreasing population in rural areas and increasing population in urban areas.” Other factors considered when changing boundaries are communities of interest, history and geography. Ladyman admits there may be concerns about shifting Falkland from Okanagan-Shuswap. “We’re well aware of those types of discussions. We’re willing to listen to people and see if adjustments can be made,” he said. There will be public input sessions Oct. 10 at 7 p.m. at the Kelowna Ramada Hotel and Oct. 11 at 7 p.m. at the Kamloops Convention Centre. Those wanting to make a presentation at a hearing are asked to register by Aug. 30 at bccb@rfed-rcf.ca” bc-cb@rfed-rcf.ca or by writing to 1095 West Pender St., Suite 301, Vancouver, B.C., V6E 2M6.

#Clean up volunteer Mike McKee ties up some of the many logs that have washed up along Canoe Beach.

Beach being monitored daily By Barb Brouwer MARKET NEWS STAFF

Despite blistering temperatures, tourists and residents are going to have to wait a while longer before heading to the beach or out on the lake. “We did a safety audit this morning and there are still a number of unseen hazards,” Robert Niewenhuizen, the city’s director of engineering and public works, said Wednesday. Niewenhuizen says because the boat launches remain submerged, officials have no idea what kind of debris is around them. Also unseen is the level of bacteria present in the water. The city is not taking water samples because the beach is closed, but Niewenhuizen cautions septic fields and tanks at nearby waterfront cabins have likely been compromised by the flooding. And, while he congratulates Kontiki beach concession owner Marianne Gardner, Federated Co-operatives and more than 30 volunteers who cleaned several truckloads debris from the

main beach, he says the beach east of the concession has been touched. Niewenhuizen says that while the weather is now co-operating, water levels are not dropping fast enough. There are other hazards on the beach as well, including two submerged irrigation boxes whose lids have come off, and nails in much of the wood debris. Earlier in the week, public works manager John Rosenberg, expressed concern that the federal wharf, which has a boat launch beside it and a submerged concrete storm outlet pipe, could easily take out a boat propeller. “That’s a liability we’re not prepared to take,” he says, noting he hopes 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 said. “It was

Right, piles of debris. there Friday and gone Monday.” In the meantime, Niewenhuizen says people who use the beach, docks or boat launches while they are officially closed do so at their own risk. Staff were planning to do another safety audit this morning (Friday) at 11 to see if the beach and boat launches could be opened for the weekend. Failing that, Niewenhuizen suggests families cool off at the spray park in Fletcher Park.

Summer show gives life to old legends Shuswap Theatre presents Legend, a collaboration between the theatre society and the Switzmalph Cultural Society. Ken Thomas, 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. Legend 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, because 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, says he has always wanted to do something to appreciate the First Nations culture. He says collaborating with Thomas included a lot of laughter and ready sharing of ideas. And from backstage to cast – many of whom are Thomas family members – to sets, costumes and publicity, he says work on the production has been almost seamless. Legend opens July 19 and run Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m., with matinees on Sundays at 1:30 p.m. Tickets are $30 for a family of four, $12 for adults, $10 for seniors and $7 for students.

Get more miles out of your car’s transmission Part 4 of a 5 part series Here are a few things you can do to help reduce heat, and keep your transmission working longer: 1. Avoid Jackrabbit Starts — Hard acceleration creates a lot of friction and heat in the transmission. Take it easy on the gas, and your transmission will live longer.

2. Help the Shift — Most of the friction and wear in the transmission takes place during the shifts. Get to know when your transmission shifts normally. Then, just before the shift, back off on the gas just a bit. That’ll reduce the load on the clutches, and eliminate much of the friction during the shift. 2560 Trans Canada Hwy. SW • 250-833-1889

Friday, July 13, 2012 Shuswap Market News

OPINION Proposed boundaries a poor first attempt The Federal Electoral Boundaries Commission has a lot of similarities to the colonial powers who carved up Africa centuries ago. Take a pen and arbitrarily draw some lines on a map. Obviously readjusting B.C.’s federal ridings to reflect shifts in population isn’t easy, but it’s almost like the commission didn’t even try. If they had actually studied a map or travelled the area, they would realize that placing Falkland with Kelowna, Summerland, Merritt, Logan Lake and Princeton is preposterous. Given the parameters for boundaries — communities of interest, history and geography — the commission has failed on every point. Falkland’s bonds are with Vernon for shopping and employment, and Armstrong for school. It is also part of the Salmon Armbased Columbia-Shuswap Regional District. Those are the factors the boundary commissioners should have considered. Meeting with the MP could become an arduous journey if the riding office is in Kelowna or Summerland. Countless hours on the road does not make for direct representation. One could also make the argument that the MP will never get a proper feel for their constituents if the riding is bigger than some European nations. The boundary commissioners say they wants to hear from residents about the proposal but they haven’t made that easy. The closest public hearings will be in Kelowna and Kamloops. If the commissioners were truly interested in doing what’s right for residents, they would pull out their pens, pull out some maps and head back to the drawing board. -Vernon Morning Star

Dragonfly’s acrobatics inspire A slight hint of a breeze began to stir the leaves of the lilac bushes that hem my front yard as I watched a solitary dragonfly buzz in and out among the remains of their long-faded blossoms. My attention stayed focused the dragonfly for the longest time. Dragonflies belong to the insect order Odonata, suborder Anisoptera. There are two different kinds of dragonflies in the Interior. Members of the Darner family (Aeschnidae) are large, sleek and predacious. They can grow to a length of more than 60 millimetres, and vary in colour from olive green to black. Gomphus dragonflies (Libellulidae) are short and squat in appearance, reach just over 25 mm in length, are pale yellow to olive green in colour and are very secretive by nature. They are usually found in the shallow waters of productive stillwater lakes. Dragonfly aerial acrobats never cease to amaze me. I also find it amazing that 80 per cent of their brain is

THE GREAT OUTDOORS James Murray used for vision and their two enormous eyes can see in every direction. Each eye contains some 30,000 segments. Dragonflies undergo what is referred to as an incomplete metamorphosis (life cycle), which means the egg develops into a larval or nymphal stage before maturing into adult form. Some nymphs can grow to reach as much as 75 mm and can live for up to four years under water before emerging as adults. Dragonfly nymphs live among the vegetation and woody debris in the shallow-water areas of lakes and/or nutrient rich streams – which just so happen to be excellent habitat for the food the nymphs feed on, including

zooplankton, scuds, mayfly nymphs, midge larvae, damselfly nymphs and even small fish. They hunt down their prey by constantly moving through the vegetation and bottom debris, or with short swimming bursts in pursuit of their next meal. Nymphs have an articulated lower jaw that can be extended to grasp and retrieve prey. They swim by taking in and expelling water out of a chamber located at the end of their abdomen. Adult dragonflies emerge from late spring through to late summer. Mature nymphs swim and/or crawl along the lake/stream bottom towards the shore, where they then crawl out of the water and up onto the stems of reeds and other riparian vegetation. Aided by the warmth of the sun, a split forms along the wing case, their wings unfold, dry out, and the adult flies away to begin reproduction. All of which brings me to the point that dragonfly nymphs can be a very productive, artificial fly pat-

tern. Whether fishing shallow waters along the shore line, the drop-off or deeper waters just beyond the drop-off, casting a dragonfly nymph pattern necessitates getting your fly down to the bottom. A sinking fly line is best, although a sinktip line will work well in shallow waters. It is most important to retrieve your line in the same direction as the nymphs are moving. Gomphus nymphs are best imitated using a slow steady hand twist retrieve. Darner nymphs crawl much faster and will occasionally swim for short distances on their way towards shore, so a medium-slow retrieve interspersed with pauses and occasional quick retrieves will be most effective. The best thing about fishing the bottom with dragonfly nymph patterns is every little bump feels like it might be a hit. But don’t worry, you’ll know when a fish does strike. It will come hard, and there won’t be any time for standing/ sitting around, watching the adult’s amazing aerial acrobatics.

Clarifying name in article on lawsuit Re: Article in the July 6 Shuswap Market News entitled, Shuswap Lake Estates sues B.C. government, by Tim Petruk. As a property owner in Shuswap Lake Estates, I would like to clarify something that was mentioned in this article. In the fifth paragraph Mr. Petruk wrote, “Shuswap Lake Estates owners entered into a contract with the B.C. Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure in 2009.�

I am sure that this was merely an oversight, but the article should have stated “Shuswap Lake Estates Ltd.� (SLE Ltd.) when describing the lawsuit submitted to the Supreme Court. The article infers, without the clarification, that the individual property owners of Shuswap Lake Estates (SLE) are somehow connected with the golf course, lounge/restaurant and lot sales managed and owned by SLE Ltd. If the construction of the

highway improvements were an apparent financial loss of $3.5 million to SLE Ltd., that is a disheartening situation. However, I think the construction was a welcome benefit to the property owners who live here. The removal of the Centennial Drive exit/entrance was a big change for all, but at the same time a necessity for safety reasons. R.S. Osborne, Blind Bay

Friday, July 13, 2012 Shuswap Market News

Informal gathering set for July 22 By Barb Brouwer MARKET NEWS STAFF

Sadness and accolades have marked reaction to the June 13 death of Ted Bacigalupo, longtime director of the Columbia Shuswap Regional District’s South Shuswap area, and board chair. “Director Bacigalupo was instrumental in launching the CSRD Parks plans, which identified linear greenway trails as a priority for local communities,” says a June 15 Shuswap Trail Alliance release. “He also worked closely with the South Shuswap Recreational Trail Society to create the Blind Bay parallel trail project, and was a tireless champion of the Shuswap Lake Integrated Planning Process (SLIPP). Earlier this year, he was honoured with the 2012 Shuswap Trail Award acknowledging his outstanding contributions to the development of regional greenway trails on behalf of the directors and staff of the regional district. Shuswap Water Action Team (SWAT) president Ray Nadeau expressed his admiration for the longtime CSRD director. “Ted was one of the most outstanding leaders our area has ever had. He worked tirelessly for the community that he loved so much, participating in almost every meeting and event in the area and beyond,” said Nadeau, describing Bacigalupo as an honest, no-nonsense, ‘tell-it-like itis,’ politician with a good wit and sense of humour. “Our community and our environment is a much better place today thanks to Ted and his great leadership. He has set the bar very high...” And Shuswap Environmental Action Society president Jim Cooperman, called Bacigalupo’s death a major loss to the region. He applauded the Area C di-

Ted Bacigalupo rector as probably one of the hardest working regional district representatives of all time. “He was a man of great integrity and a true environmentalist who cared deeply about protecting the health of our region,” said Cooperman, noting he cherishes the time he spent with Bacigalupo, working on a variety of issues. “Before he became a politician, he was a member of SEAS and supported our efforts to protect wilderness and create new parks.” Bacigalupo was first elected to the position of Electoral Area C South Shuswap director in 1999, serving for 13 years. “It was a role he filled with tremendous dedication, putting in many hours attending as many community meetings and functions as possible,” says a CSRD media release. “ In addition, he championed the causes of the various commissions and committees on which he served; most notably the Okanagan Regional Library Board, where he served as chair for the past five years, and the Shuswap Lake Integrated Planning Process (SLIPP)...” Regional district vice-chair Revelstoke Mayor Dave Raven called Bacigalupo’s death a real loss, not only to his family and friends, but also to the wider community he served. “We’re all deeply saddened. Ted was a good friend to all of

us on the board. He very proudly served his area,” said Raven. “He was a true gentleman and he taught me many lessons. He will be sadly missed and my heart goes out to his family and his many friends.” CSRD chief administrative officer Charles Hamilton, said he, too, was deeply saddened. “On behalf of all the staff at the CSRD, I would like to extend my heartfelt sympathies to his family and friends,” said Hamilton. “Ted was a great character with whom I had a wonderful working relationship. I will miss him very much indeed.” Bacigalupo died peacefully with his family by his side and his family expressed their “heartfelt thanks,” to those who offered support through the recent challenging times and shared their admiration for him, both as a friend and as a dedicated member of the local community. “Over the past few months, he was greatly comforted by this support and also by the coming together of his immediate family,” say his children Randy, Rochelle and Jeremy. Bacigalupo had requested that there be no service in his memory. However, his family has organized an informal gathering in his honour from noon to 4 p.m. Sunday, July 22 at the Blind Bay Hall, 2510 Blind Bay Rd. at the corner of Marine Drive. Everyone is welcome to share stories and anecdotes and enjoy a slice of Ted’s favourite cake with a cup of tea or coffee. For those who would like to see Bacigalupo’s commitment to environmental stewardship continue, the family would be pleased if you would make a contribution, in his name, to the Shuswap Community Foundation, either online at shuswapfoundation.ca or by mail at Box 624, 450 Lakeshore Drive NE, Salmon Arm, BC.

Awarded big scholarship Darby Arens of Sorrento, daughter of Desmond and Susan Arens, has been awarded the President’s Scholarship to attend Trinity Western University for the fall 2012 semester. This prestigious scholarship is awarded annually to the top academic students of the incoming first-year class. Arens is a recent graduate who played se-

Darby Arens nior volleyball and was involved with senior band. She participated in numerous school

theatre productions and recently played multiple roles in a production of M*A*S*H. She also participated in a missions trip to Los Angeles in 2011. Her favourite subjects were art and photography. She plans to pursue an art, media and culture degree. She will be welcomed to campus on Sept. 1 for TWU’s OWeek. This signature

orientation program is designed to welcome new students to the campus learning environment, introduce them to the local area, and connect them with other first-year students who come from around the world to study at TWU. Trinity Western University is Canada’s premier Christian university of the arts, sciences, and professions.

Free composting program set for July 14 The Columbia Shuswap Regional District 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 how to compost,” says waste reduction facilitator Carmen Fennell, adding that Golden residents who recently took a similar program were very positive. “We

are excited to have a program in the Shuswap.” The daylong program gives participants in-depth information on composting and recycling in a classroom-type setting and includes a handson component. “The idea is to have knowledgeable people in the community who can be a community resource,” Fennell said. “This is really

an effective way to encourage people to reuse, reduce, recycle and re-think what they’re throwing in the landfill.” The training is free of charge 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 in some fashion.

Ladies’ Night Out!

TUESDAYS 2PM TO 5PM

“As long as they’re passing along that information, it can be done in any number of ways,” she said. “It’s really self-directed.” The Master Composting Program takes place at the CSRD board room at 781 Marine Park Drive Salmon Arm. Lunch will be provided. For more information, contact Carmen Fennell at 250-8335936.

Raising funds for Parkinson’s The Zen Den By Cavelle Layes

MARKET NEWS STAFF

A journey he decided to make as an attempt to give his father some hope is turning into a valuable lesson for himself. It was about seven years ago when Cory Welsh’s father was officially diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease, a degenerative disorder of the central nervous system. Welsh says he has tried to help his dad since his diagnosis, but say he thinks his father is in denial about his health. That hasn’t stopped Welsh from trying to do whatever he can to help his father come to terms with his disease, and help him live life as comfortably as he can. For two years Welsh has been thinking about touring across Canada on bike to raise money for Parkinson’s research, but it wasn’t until September that he really began to plan it out. Now, several months later, Welsh is already pedaling his way across the country. When he arrived in Salmon Arm last week, Welsh had already biked his way through 10 British Columbia cities and earned $32,398. Being from Ontario, the B.C. landscape has been a welcome change for Welsh, who could think of no better way of exploring it for the first time. Welsh hopes to raise a minimum of $50,000 during his bike tour, and has arranged to do-

#Cory Welsh and his girlfriend Elyse Parris stopped in Salmon Arm to raise awareness of Parkinson’s and raise money with their cross-Canada tour. nate all of the money to Parkinson’s research when he reaches his final destination. While most fundraisers of this type donate all the money in one lump sum to a specific chapter of the group, Welsh has arranged it so that every cent that comes from a specific chapter’s district, goes back to that area. So every penny raised in the Salmon Arm area will be donated to the district’s Parkinson’s research chapter. Welsh’s girlfriend Elyse Parris has come along for the ride, following closely behind him in a van. The pair has been staying in the homes of people who have Parkinson’s or have been affected in some way by the disease. This has not only saved on the cost of hotels, but it has also provided some of the

greatest lessons Welsh has learned in the seven years since his father’s diagnosis. “When my dad was diagnosed, I didn’t really know what the disease was,” he says. “I knew you got tics, but that was about it.” Through staying with families who have been in some way affected by the disease, Welsh has not only been able to learn about the many different forms of the disease, but also different tips on how his father can live a more normal life. “I have people telling me things I can do with my dad that will help him as well as get him out,” he says. “I actually met with one man here in Salmon Arm whose father had Parkinson’s.” Welsh explains how the man described what it was like for him to take care of his father, the things he learned,

the difficulties as well as the joys. When it was mentioned that he might be helping these families by giving them someone to talk to, Welsh immediately denied this. “I think they are helping me.” Welsh was just heading into Alberta and plans to end his journey in Halifax, N.S. It is not the distance left to travel that is worrying Welsh. “The biking part is easy,” he says. “It is getting the word out that is hard. If people do not know that we are out there doing this, we will not be able to reach our goal.” The public can donate money in two ways. The first is in person as Welsh cycles through their town or city. The second is online, through their web-

Sorrento 100 – the Lee Creek connection derstand the role of the nearby community of Lee Creek in its development and how small communities were often linked together with strong social ties. Could it be that in those days, before mass culture distractions and highspeed communication and travel that people had more fun and knew each other better?

SHUSWAP PASSION Jim Cooperman In 1912, a new post office in what was then called Trappers Landing first used the name Sorrento for the cancellation stamp. Early land developer James Kinghorn had chosen the community’s name because the area reminded him of Sorrento, Italy. The 100th anniversary is being celebrated this year with a variety of events, beginning with “Gates Open,” a tour of pioneer homes on July 19th followed by a street party on July 21st. Many of the original homes and buildings in Sorrento and Notch Hill were built by Lee Creek homesteader Alex McKay, including the Walter Dunne Home, the Coubeaux home, and St. Mary’s Church. McKay also designed the original church, while the log work was mostly done by Tom Foster, who was half Blackfoot Nation and whose half-sister was married to another Lee Creek pioneer and remittance man, Harry Hopwood. In 1986 and 1987, I interviewed Alex McKay’s daughter, Barbara Wood, who lived at the time in Chase. She provided some fascinating stories about the lives of the first settlers in this part of the Shuswap. Her father’s skills

as both a carpenter and mason became well appreciated throughout the region, as he was often away constructing homes and buildings in Salmon Arm and Kamloops, including the CNR Station and the Masonic Hall. When he first worked in Sorrento, he travelled there by boat, as there were no roads in those early days. The first, long-term settler at Lee Creek was Oliver Freeman, a bachelor from Ontario who arrived in 1906 by sailing up the Thompson River. He was joined briefly by his sister, Isabel, who returned in 1910 to homestead an adjacent section of land with her husband Alex. A few years later, Alex’s brother Bill arrived with his family to homestead the property where the Cottonwood Campground is now. The last family member to join the group was Oliver’s father, James, who arrived to homestead here at the remarkable age of 63. Just as the old saying goes, Alex was too busy building other

people’s homes to do a decent job on his own, although his family was also plagued by calamities. They spent their first winter in a tent on the beach, when Barbara was a baby. He then built a rather rugged looking log home that unfortunately burned down in 1921. Although he quickly built a new house, his youngest son Kenneth, was playing with matches and burned it down after they were only in it for a few weeks. Fortunately, the house he had built for his brother Bill was available, which at the time only had three rooms. He spent years finishing it. This house later became known as the Hunt Gallery and is still there today. Lee Creek, in those days, was like a suburb of Sorrento, as it was the closest community, accessed by boat during most of the year and by crossing over the ice in the winter. Lee Creek families bought their supplies in Sorrento and Blind Bay and the children attended school there

until they built the Lee Creek School in 1919. Sorrento and Blind Bay were also where the Lee Creek settlers often went to attend parties, dances and other social gatherings. As Barbara recollected, “The big “dos” in those days were the box socials. I remember going to one in Sorrento once, it was a concert as well as a dance. In those days there were no babysitters, so people used to take their children to the dances. Once we came home in a wagon in the daylight.” One of the social highlights of the year was the July 1st Sorrento Regatta. “Everyone came for miles,” remembered Barbara. “Once I entered a ladies rowing race. There were just three boats, so we drew straws to see who got which boat. I came in second with a big rowboat and the winners had a canoe.” The Shuswap has certainly seen many changes over the last 100 years. As we take time to reflect on Sorrento’s anniversary, it is also important to un-

Sociology professor receives teaching excellence award An engaging teaching style that encourages students to take their studies beyond the classroom has earned a Salmon Arm professor Okanagan College’s Teaching Excellence Award. Dr. Melissa Munn, who teaches in the Sociology and Interdisciplinary Studies departments at both the Salmon Arm and Vernon campuses, received the award at the College’s Employee Excellence Awards presentation held recently at the Kelowna campus. Okanagan College established this and other awards to recognize the many outstanding contributions employees of all kinds make to the development of both the college and the greater community. The awards are to be handed out annually for a wide-range of achievements including innovation, scholarly activity and service excellence. Munn’s academic interest in prisoner release resulted in her developing the Penal Press website, where

Church honours scholar The First United Church Men’s Club annually selects a local student for a $500 scholarship. Matthew Dodds was this year’s recipient. Dodds attended Salmon Arm First United Church for many years participating the youth program. He is presently married and living in Kamloops. Dodds hopes to graduate in 2013 with a Bachelor of Social Work from Thompson Rivers University, and eventually obtain his Masters in Social Work.

Dr. Melissa Munn prison history is written and produced by prisoners. Students assist in digitizing the material and earn publication credits. Students are also encouraged to take part in community projects, most recently the Living Wage Campaign. “The teaching excellence at Okanagan College, combined with strong ties to the local community, is what makes a difference for students in

Salmon Arm,” said Okanagan College President Jim Hamilton. Munn, who is an internationally published researcher, has also been known to incorporate popular culture into the classroom. She delivers her Crime and Society course around an entire season of the TV show The Wire. She was just one of many employees honoured with an Employee Excellence Award. Okanagan School of Business professor Dr. Kyleen Myrah, who founded and continues to mentor students involved in the College-wide SIFE Okanagan program, received the President’s Award.

#Fighting Pheasant outfielder Brad Romyn picks off a fly ball during a game in the Salmon Arm Summer League Slopitch Tournament held over the weekend at the Canoe Ball Park.

For the first time in history, the Salmon Arm Sockeyes swim team narrowly defeated the Kelowna Ogopogos at their own swim meet. The Sockeyes took an impressive 48 swimmers to this Kelowna meet to contribute to this win – and whether competing in individual events or relays, the Sockeyes placed on the podium. In division one girls, Julianne Moore earned another gold aggregate, multiple best times and broke a meet record from 1981 by .05 seconds in the 50-m breaststroke event. Eric Moore and Matthew Bushell won bronze and silver in division-one boys and, along with teammates Rowan Trow and Connor Levins on relays, showed these boys are a force in relays. MaryJane Laronde participated in her first meet of the season and swam personal bests in every event, while Noel Arnason swam in his first meet as a Sockeye and qualified for a couple of finals. In division two,

Keeya Corbett showed how well rounded a competitor she is, placing second overall. In division two boys, Jamie Trow added a silver aggregate for the team behind Stephen Moore, who won every event and added another record in the 50-m breaststroke. In division three girls, Claire Hall took home the bronze aggregate. Ty Bushell, was the bronze aggregate winner in division three boys. Aria Izik-Dzurko continued to be a super competitor, swimming best times and placing in the top eight “A” finals in every event. Anna Konrad also showed time improvement in every event and moved up the rankings in division three. In division four girls, Emma-Leigh Chapman took home the bronze aggregate. Division four boys had a medal sweep of the podium with Matt Cooper winning the bronze, Matthew Nesdoly the silver and Jaeden Izik-Dzurko the gold. Division five girl, Tricia Fair, took home

Alysson Marshall

the gold aggregate and broke a record in the 50-m butterfly event, while division five boy, Brayden Gilliam, also won a gold aggregate. Abbie Nesdoly had her breakthrough meet of the season; a highlight included winning a swim-off in order to gain a lane in finals for the 50-m butterfly, after tying in preliminary heats. Oscar Kolotylo was an especially strong competitor in freestyle events. In division six, ElizaJane Kitchen won the gold aggregate for the girls’ events while Jon Wex won the bronze aggregate for the boys. The Sockeyes hope to continue their great season in their last few meets of the year before attending regionals and provincials.

Season wraps up on high notes ON THE PITCH Kevin Harrison With the conclusion of the Select program provincial championships this past weekend and our main Shuswap Youth Soccer season a few weeks ago, after enough dry fields were found to complete the season, we look back on a lot of highs and a couple of lows. Registration started a little later than in the past, but SYSA was very excited to introduce our very own online registration system as well as a website that Jane Barton, our SYSA administrator, could update instantly. It came in very handy later in the season with field closures and updates of the rescheduling and relocating of practices and games due to closed waterlogged city fields. Filling all of the more than 100 coaching positions thanks to some wonderful Shuswap volunteers, including youth aged coaches as young as 15 years old, was an amazing feat. There were a few instances we would like to see not repeated next year, most notably the few occasions

when our new younger officials were verbally attacked by some thoughtless parents. A special thank you to the Wednesday night practice teams who endured week after week of bad weather during their practice times. There were amazing sacrifices made by all to complete our season on just hours of notice after mother nature threw the most rain seen in the Shuswap in many years at our city fields. Having started up on outdoor fields up to one month behind the rest of the Okanagan, our Development and Select teams did a great job competing with some much larger communities. Included in these teams was a great job by our graduating Under 18 Girls proudly representing our community in the recently completed Girls Provincial Championships in Kelowna. Thank you to Coach Ian McLellan and the now young ladies who most have been proudly representing our community for six or seven years. A really amazing accomplishment this past weekend came from Coach David Knight and Assistant Coach Ken Kantymir and the boys on our U16 Team, who came within a couple of minutes of competing for a gold medal. As they have done all year, the boys re-

Lightning fire doused By Lynda Hooper MARKET NEWS STAFF

The Trans-Canada Highway was closed at the foot of Mount Boysee south of Chase for about half an hour Tuesday, July 10, while fire crews cleared brush. The clearing was in response to a lightningcaused fire Monday, July 9. Chase Fire Chief Brent Chamberlain saw lightning strike a tree on the side of Mount Boysee around 6 p.m. Monday, which then burst into flames. “The terrain is too steep for firefighting on the ground. It was raining and windy, so I kept an eye on the site, while in contact with dispatch from the Kamloops Fire District. KFD and the Salmon Arm Forest District oversee this particular location,” said Chamberlain. Chamberlain said there was another call to the Chase Fire Hall which came in simultaneously from the Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church across the highway from the base of Mount Boysee. It turned out to be

Highland dancing to perfection McKenzie. “It’s a very difficult dance because it doesn’t always follow the rules of normal highland dancing,” said Kylie of the different arm and leg positions in the six-step tribute piece. “It’s hard just having to learn different ways of doing things.” For two months, she practised the dance moves, perfecting each arm hold and leg position. “It means a lot, for recognition, getting my name out there,” she said of the award. Kylie plans to travel to Scotland in two years to compete against the world’s best dancers. The $1,000 scholarship will help her reach this latest goal.

By Lynda Hooper MARKET NEWS STAFF

“I’ll be dancing until I die.” Fourteen-year-old Chase resident Kylie Schmidt, makes this declaration when talking about recently taking first place in the 13 to 15-year-old category of the 2012 J.L McKenzie Award, a premier prize handed out by ScotDance Canada. Schmidt’s mom Vicki confirmed her daughter has a hard time standing still, wherever they go. The award comes with a $1,000 cash prize. The J.L McKenzie Award is named after James McKenzie, a Scottish-born world highland dance champion who toured extensively during his performance years and is credited with raising the standard of dance in Canada. Known for his passion and dedication to the craft, McKenzie competed into his late 40s, and won plenty of prizes along the way. ScotDance Canada established the tribute award after he died in 1992 and bestows it every couple of years on three young dancers who exhibit the level of commitment McKenzie showed throughout his career. Schmidt has danced since age four and is among the most dedicated of dancers, attributing her success to focus and practise. She looks forward to eventually becoming a dance instructor. A bagpipe-playing uncle was Schmidt’s

She saw the highland dancing, knew it was what she wanted and, about 10 years later, after much hard work and dedication, is a national award winner.

Aliens explore Chase library The Chase Library had a couple of visitors from another planet, who decided the best place to learn about nearly anything is a library. They discovered a book opened for display, deciding it must be of great importance: Mother Goose Rhymes. The two muppet- like aliens discussed how they needed to learn as much as they could about earthlings. “Jack be nimble, jack be quick, Jack jumped over the candlestick. Earthlings can’t be all that intelligent playing with fire,” one alien told the other. “And they must be lazy,” said the other alien after reading that Little Boy Blue was fast asleep while his animals ran amok. “Hey diddle diddle, the cat and the fiddle, the cow jumped over the moon. That’s it,” said alien number one, “We’d better get out of here quick, earthlings

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.

MARVIN EARL GOODRICH It is with profound sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Earl Goodrich after a brief battle with cancer. Earl was born May 17, 1937 in Vancouver, B.C. to Raymond and Evelyn Goodrich. Earl lived and graduated from high school in Chilliwack. At a coffee shop in Chilliwack he met the love of his life, Gail and they were married November 4, 1961. Gail and Earl moved to Vernon in 1964 where Earl worked for Dunlop Tire. In 1965 they and their two girls, Susan and Wendy, moved to Salmon Arm. Here Earl and Gail started their successful independent tire business and bought Valley Tire, later (1975) to become a Kal Tire Associate dealer. Earl was an active and visible member of his community. Throughout his working career, he developed many loyal and longterm business relationships. Earl’s close network of friends was an important part of his life. He served for two years on Salmon Arm City Council in the early 1970’s, was a volunteer for the Salmon Arm fire department, manager of the Aces hockey team, a member of the Elk’s Lodge, and served on the Board of Directors of the Salmon Arm Golf Club. After retirement in 1990, Earl became an avid golfer and enjoyed many rounds at the Salmon Arm Golf Club and Shadow Mountain Golf Club, their winter home in Palm Desert. Earl and Gail celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary November 4, 2011 with their two daughters; Susan and Wendy in Mexico. Earl accomplished one of his top items on his ‘Bucket List’ and caught a 135 pound marlin. Earl is survived by his wife Gail, daughters Susan Price of Williams Lake and Wendy (John) Knapik of Nelson as well as grandchildren Blair and Mark Knapik and Brad and Amanda (Brendan) Price and great-grandchild Arilyee. A Celebration of Life will be held Saturday July 14th at 2:00 pm at the Gathering Place; 350 ~ 30th Street NE. In lieu of flowers the family would appreciate donations to the Canadian Cancer Society or to the charity of your choice.

# Carson Bischoff competes in a log-rolling event during one of the many logger sports competitions he has taken part in over the years. if they can get more people in at the lower levels, it could ensure a

longer lifespan for the sport. As far as the cost of

competing in the sport, Bischoff says that it is actually very mini-

mal. There is not much gear needed to compete and what is required is

usually passed down throughout those in the sport. “We will often lend equipment, there is no need to go out and buy fancy gear, you just don’t need it,” he says. “It is like a family, almost everyone gets along.” In another attempt to bring logger sports to smaller communities, STIHL is hosting their National competition in Chase on Saturday. Bischoff is excited about this event and invites the public to come down and watch. The event runs from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m, with the main show scheduled for noon.

They used to be a common sight throughout British Columbia, but over the last few years the sport has lost its popularity. Now, a new generation of lumberjacks is trying to bring the sport back to life, and bring with it a younger crowd. Celista resident, Carson Bischoff, is just one of those working towards reviving a sport that he, himself, has been an active part of since the age of seven. Lumberjack competitions consists of a series of multiple events, most often including hot saw competitions, springboard, and even log rolling. It used to be much easier for people to get into the lumberjack competitions. Bischoff explains that it is part of Canadian history, especially in B.C. where many people worked as lumberjacks. People would commonly spend their days swinging an axe, working with saws, and cutting down trees. Competing in logger sports was a common pass-time, as it was an entertaining way to use the skills they had developed on a daily bases. Today, however, most logging is done by machines such as bunchers and processors, reducing the need for physical axe swinging as well as the amount of people who enter into logger com-

petitions. While the lumberjack competitions were always largely family oriented, now the family aspects seems to be a crutch holding the sport up. “We need to keep it alive,” says Bischoff. “There used to be 22 shows in B.C. alone, but now we are now down just 6.” Bischoff explains that it is easier for those new to the sport, to begin in local competitions. “You are going up against other people that are new to it, or are at least around your same level.” “In the competition circuit you are going up against the worlds greatest . That can get discouraging for some, and makes it hard for new people to really get into it.” Bischoff believes that there needs to be more community events brought back. “Local shows do great” he says, “maybe that is what the sports need.” People like Janice Burns have bee actively trying to bring logger sports to Universities as well. The University of British Columbia is just one school that has adapted the sport so far, and while they do not compete against other schools, it could be something to shoot for in the future. CANLOG, an organization that actively tries to promote logger sports throughout Canada. Bischoff says that
