Canoe Beach still closed to public By Barb Brouwer MARKET NEWS STAFF

Life for boaters will be getting back to normal in time for the weekend, but Canoe Beach will remain closed to swimmers. Shuswap Emergency Program officials announced Wednesday they would

open Columbia Shuswap Regional District boat launches at Magna Bay Wharf Road and Harbour Road in Blind Bay Thursday, July 19. However, the boat launch at Markwart Road in Sorrento remains closed until paving is completed. John Rosenberg, manager

of public works for the City of Salmon Arm, said the city would likely follow suit, opening two boat launches in Canoe and one in Salmon Arm Bay. But a decision on whether or not to open Canoe Beach to swimming will not happen until results of water samples taken Tuesday are

completed. “We won’t be opening the beach until we hear from Interior Health, that’s for sure,” Rosenberg said. The water is being tested for fecal coliform and total coliform, to see if the levels exceed acceptable limits. Robert Niewenhuizen, the city’s director of engineer-

ing and public works, had previously expressed concern about coliform levels because of the possibility that area septic tanks and fields had been compromised by recent flooding. In the meantime, he suggests families cope with the heat by going to the Fletcher Park spray park.

Caution urged on trail system By Barb Brouwer MARKET NEWS STAFF

No scat, no sign and no track does not mean a bear that chased three mountain bikers is no longer in the South Canoe trail system. Hugo Rampen was chased by an aggressive bear for more than two kilometres Saturday morning. His encounter of the bear kind followed on the heels of two other mountain bikers who were also chased by the bear the previous day. Conservation officers responded immediately, by putting up yellow police tape and setting up a bear trap. The trails were closed to hikers and bikers. As of Wednesday, there was no bear in the trap. Nor had conservation officers seen the bear, or any sign he was still in the area. “We saw dear and moose, but no bear,” said conservation officer Brent Smith Wednesday morning, noting he planned to remove the bear trap Thursday. “Based on the signs, he hasn’t been near the trap since Saturday.” He says conservation officers have hiked the area around the trap, which was set up on the southern intersection of the Prudential Trail where it intersects with a road – the area in which Rampen’s ordeal with the bear took place. Smith says there is a large berry patch in the

area and this is prime berry season. “He’s got a creek, shade and a good water supply,” says Smith as to why he suspects the bear may still be in the area. “That’s some of the best bear habitat you’ll find.” Smith says that in B.C., incidents of bears chasing mountain bikers are not uncommon. “Provincially there’s been numerous events with bears chasing mountain bikers,” he says. “We don’t know what they would do if they caught them, and whether it’s speed and the bear thinks it’s a deer (or some other possible ‘food’ item), we don’t know.” As to pulling the trap, Smith says if there are further incidents involving a bear chasing trail users, conservation officers can easily put it back. The traps are baited with what conservation officials describe as “sweet and sour.” The sour is often rotting fish while the sweet is sticky molasses. Traps are typically replaced after four or five days if no bear takes the bait. The bear that chased Rampen and two other mountain bikers is described as being a brown “black” bear with a cinnamon coloured mane, and weighing about 250 to 275 pounds. While Rampen believes the bear was toying with him rather that looking at him as a diet item, conservation of-

Hugo Rampen ficer Jim Beck, who spoke to this newspaper Monday, called the bear’s actions aggressive, with a potential for attack. “Climbing a tree, chasing and shadowing, they’re not a good sign,” he said referring to the bear’s retreat four feet up a nearby tree when Rampen fell off his bike after his handlebar snagged a

tree. “Generally bears are motivated by their stomachs. If they’re exerting that kind of energy, they’re either protecting cubs, or a food source, or they’re angling toward you as a food source.” Beck recalls a similar incident in the Kootenays two years ago, when a biker lost his life in a bear attack. “It’s something we take very seriously,” he said, noting the bear would have been euthanized had it been trapped. Back on the trails, Smith says anyone using them, or other wilderness areas should use caution and carry pepper spray. Skookum Cycle and

Get more miles out of your car’s transmission Part 5 of a 5 part series Here are a few things you can do to help reduce heat, and keep your transmission working longer: 3. Keep the Cooling System in Good Shape — Your car’s radiator also provides cooling for your transmission. And heat damage will take place in the transmission long before the engine appears to overheat. So regular cooling system service can help your transmission run cooler… and last longer.

4. Add a Transmission Cooler — If you travel a lot in extremely high temperatures or carry a lot of weight in your car or truck, an auxiliary transmission cooler is a great way to reduce heat and add years to your transmission’s life. 2560 Trans Canada Hwy. SW • 250-833-1889

Mussels hitch a ride to Shuswap Lake MARKET NEWS STAFF

An invasive species has “musseled” its way in to Shuswap waters. Officials discovered the presence of quagga mussels on a power boat that was transported to B.C. from Arizona. The province worked with the Invasive Species Council of B.C., provincial and federal agencies and international partners to respond to the threat of invasive zebra and quagga mussels on the lake this month. Officials from the Ministry of Environment and the Ministry of Forests, Lands and

Natural Resource Operations and federal Department of Fisheries and Oceans removed the boat from Shuswap Lake on July 3. This action was taken to limit the likelihood of mussels becoming established in the lake and was done with the co-operation of the boat owner and the marina operator, says a B.C. government press release. The boat was thoroughly inspected and decontaminated after it was pulled from the lake. It’s now been confirmed that sample mussels taken from the vessel were dead at the time they were re-

moved. There is still a small risk that viable mussels were on the hull or in internal water sources at the time the boat was launched and docked in Shuswap Lake. As an extra precaution, water samples from the boat’s bilge and pump systems are being analyzed for the presence of mussel larvae. Divers are also scheduled to complete a thorough inspection of the marina’s moorage area, piers and lake bed. “Our government works collaboratively with the Invasive Species Council of B.C. and communities

throughout B.C. to respond to invasive species risks,” says Steve Thomson, Minister of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations. “Staff are committed to delivering an effective early detection and rapid-response program to address any new invasive species that are found in B.C. The Shuswap Lake situation is an excellent example of how a quick and proactive response can minimize such threats,” he adds. The introduction and establishment of zebra mussels or quagga mussels into British Columbia would change the biodiversity of our

water systems, threaten native species and fisheries, and increase maintenance costs related to the operation of hydroelectric, industrial, agricultural and recreational facilities. In 2009, B.C. signed on as a partner in the Columbia Basin Rapid Response Plan, along with Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Montana. The system provides early detection, rapid response and notification about zebra and quagga mussels. These mussels and other aquatic invasive species can be transferred from boats, trailers and boating and fishing equipment.

# One of the busy behind-the-scenes workers at Caravan Farm Theatre welds a set for The Right Robert & His Robber Bride, which opens Tuesday.

Rip-snortin’ romance rules Caravan farm By Barb Brouwer MARKET NEWS STAFF

The small B.C. town of Chickabiddy lazes in the dust-choking heat of the day. But the bucolic peace is suddenly shattered by the sound of thundering hooves. A getaway car races away. Think Bonnie and Clyde without the gore, as Caravan Farm Theatre presents The Notorious Right Robert & His Robber Bride – a heart-racing comedy set in the 1930s. “I thought about this in January, 2011 and approached (Toronto playwright) Sean Dixon,” says Caravan artistic director, actor and choreographer Courtenay Dobbie, who directs the pro-

duction. “I wanted to do something adventurous, with non-stop action, exciting, thrilling and a comedy.” Being at Caravan, Dobbie says she obviously wanted horses to be included. “I wanted to focus on the 1930s, purely with the idea of having a male and female protagonist we’re rooting for – something sort of Bonnie and Clydish.” Familiar with Caravan, having written the successful Ballad of Petey Whitestraw, Dixon hopped onboard and wrote this year’s summer offering. Meet Jenny Lundy, a smalltown girl with big dreams of becoming a newspaper journalist. But getting out of town is an unrealized

dream – until she meets the handsome, charismatic, bank-robbing outlaw Right Robert. He sweeps her off her feet and onto the heady path to ill-gotten gains for a chance to better their lives. “It’s a rip-snortin’ dust bowl romance in a comedy, but it has some really touching story lines,” says Dobbie. “These two smalltown people meet each other, fall in love and through their relationship bring the best out in each other and figure out what their dreams are and who they want to be.” That element is important to Dobbie, who says falling in love for the first time presents a time to learn about

oneself and one’s possibilities. “You find out about yourself, that I am special to someone,” she says. “You become a more fully present and courageous human being.” Enhancing the heartracing production is the alt-country music of Salmon Arm’s own singer-songwriter, guitarist Herald Nix, who performs in the show with his band. To join the fun, get your tickets for The Notorious Right Robert & His Robber Bride at www.ticketseller.ca or 1-866-311-1011. The show runs nightly rain or shine at 7:30 p.m. (no show Mondays, pay-what-youcan Tuesdays) from July 24 to Aug. 26.

OPINION Basic message about life jackets forgotten Maybe it’s because he also instructs boating safety that you can sense the frustration from Vernon RCMP Cpl. Gerry Kovacs when he said, with no pun intended, the message about being safe on the water is not sinking in. Vernon-North Okanagan RCMP have been conducting daily patrols over the last two weeks on Okanagan, Kalamalka, Mara and Mabel lakes. This past weekend, six boats were taken off the water because they weren’t safe. Charges were laid for not having the vessel licence on the back of the boat, not having an operator competency card on board and not having a spotter when towing someone behind the vessel. There were also charges – and this is where Kovacs’ frustration rises – for not having a sufficient supply of life jackets on board for each person. And it’s not just on boats where life jackets, or a lack of them, are an issue. Police rescued two stand-up paddle boarders who got blown out towards the middle of the lakes. Neither had a life jacket and one was so exhausted they were literally clinging to the board, hoping to be picked up by a boater. One 14-year-old boy was also rescued by police after his inflatable dinghy got blown off-course by the wind. He too did not have a life jacket on or with him in the dinghy. While boating law in Canada states that there must be approved life jackets aboard the vessel for every person on board, it’s simply not enough to have them stored someplace on the boat. “It’s an offence to be on the water without life jackets aboard,” said Kovacs. “And wearing a life jacket is the absolute insurance against drowning.” RCMP are reiterating their message to all boaters: go out and enjoy the lakes, but make safety a No. 1 priority. -Vernon Morning Star

Common sense goes a long way You just never know who you are going to meet along the trail. Three cyclists were recently confronted and chased by the same bear within a 24-hour period along the South Canoe Trail near Salmon Arm. For the three people involved it must have been a frightening experience to say the least. For the bear, it was more like meals on wheels. Many bears have come to associate people with food. They learn quickly how to rummage around landfill sites, dumpsters and people’s backyards in search of an easy meal. In the end, however, it is the bears that pretty well always come out the losers. The most effective way to prevent a bear-human contact situation is to obviously simply stay away from bears. This also means not being able to enjoy the great outdoors. Another way is to become ‘bear aware’ by learning about bears, their habits and the habitat where they live. Know that when you enter into certain areas, you are entering ‘their’ territory, and, that bears are territorial.

THE GREAT OUTDOORS James Murray They will protect their food source from other bears as well as any other perceived threat to their food and/or well being. (This is even greater when a sow feels the need to protect her young.) Inadvertently coming across a bear on the trail is one thing, being responsible for attracting bears is another. Too many bear-human contact situations arise from people unwittingly attracting bears into their campsites or yards with food. Put away or remove any food stuffs that might attract bears. Store food away from your tent or trailer when camping. And, keep in mind, that prevention starts in your own backyard. Clean up anything edible

(to bears) such as garbage, bird seed, compost and fruit that has fallen from trees. Keep garbage in a secured container, garage or shed until pick-up day and return the containers to their secured site once they’ve been emptied. Pick ripe and fallen fruit daily. Use bird feeders only in winter months and keep the nearby ground free of seeds and nuts. Clean your barbecue after each use and store it in a secured area. Store pet food and food dishes inside. If you do end up confronting a bear on the trail, in camp or in your yard, remain calm, and by all means keep away from the bear. Never approach or attempt to chase a bear, as they can move very quickly. Once the bear has left the area, check to ensure there are no attractants that will draw it back. Leave the area as soon as possible. Last year the province’s Conservation Officer Service received more than 23,240 reports of bear sightings. Officers attended more than 2,827 incidents where

bears had been acting aggressively or public safety was an issue. As a result 675 black bears had to be destroyed, while another 175 bears were relocated. By cutting down trees, clearing land and building homes in areas that were once natural bear habitat, we have encroached upon their natural territory. It is ironic that human development is displacing bears while at the same time luring them back by leaving easy food lying around for them to feed on. Bears are large, strong, fast and dangerous. They are also unpredictable and tend to become more brazen when they are hungry - especially when first coming out of hibernation or when they have become starved because natural food sources are limited or no longer available. While there is little food value in garbage, it is never-the-less food and a hungry bear will do virtually anything to get at something to eat. Common sense will go a long way in preventing and averting bear-human contacts and conflicts.

VIEW POINT It appears abnormal becoming the new normal SHUSWAP PASSION Jim Cooperman It was 15 years ago that the last washout devastated the Mara Lake area, when a debris flood swept down Hummingbird Creek and tore up the highway and parts of Swansea Point. This year the damage is even greater and there were two events, one in Sicamous Creek and the other in Hummingbird and Mara Creeks which join together just above the highway. In 1997, the slide occurred because after five days of heavy rain, a cutblock channeled too much water into a culvert that diverted water onto a steep slope, which then gave way into the creek. It appears that a major cause of this year’s massive flood events was simply inadequate culverts that could not channel the amount of water and debris unleashed by upwards of 80 mm of rain that fell on the remaining

snow in the mountains. For the Swansea flood, another factor may be clearcut logging, which has been extensive in the watersheds. According to the “Compendium of Forest Hydrology,� the loss of forest cover results in a significant increase in the amount of water entering streams (from five to 70 per cent more water). When the flow in streams is at a peak flow rate, stream banks tend to erode and often trees can block the creek and when the dam bursts it creates a debris flow slide that can cause major damage. However, the lack of debris in the flood at Swansea Point, indicates that neither of the creeks plugged up, as Hummingbird is still scoured from the 1997 event and Mara Creek held up. This time it was the culvert under the highway that plugged with a few trees and when the water overtopped the highway, it took out the pavement and proceeded to tear up the roads in the residential area and damage houses and cabins. In 2004, the BC government announced its intention to construct a bridge and debris basin, but Swansea residents were unwilling to undertake the responsibil-

ity and costs of maintenance, given that no other community in the province has this liability. The Sicamous Creek washout was more of a natural event, as there is much less logging in this watershed, and most of the logging that has occurred was part of the Sicamous Creek research project that includes selective logging and very small blocks. The intense rain generated more water than the culvert under the Skyline Road could handle and according to Ministry of Forests engineering officer Lyle Knight, the road washed out. The resulting sediment and high flow then joined with the high flow from the other channel and began eroding stream banks along the main stem of the creek. The resulting sediment and debris plugged the highway bridge forcing the flow along with the debris into the Waterways Houseboat property and also to the south into the 2-Mile subdivision. Compounding the potential for problems such as we are seeing now in the Shuswap is climate change. As the planet warms and as more moisture enters the atmosphere,

the frequency of severe weather patterns increases. Abnormal has become the new normal, with the increased likelihood of both deluges and droughts, as well as either overly warm or overly cold weather at unexpected times of the year. In the case of Swansea Point, in 2007 the Columbia Shuswap Regional District approved the Hummingbird Resort recreational development despite the likelihood of floodplain problems. However, they did insist on a covenant that acknowledged the property’s potential flood hazard and thus protected the CSRD, the Ministry of Transportation and the province from “claims against them related to damage from the hazard.� Only the much appreciated, but now deceased Area C director Ted Bacigalupo voiced any concern at the time: “We cushion ourselves from the legal aspect, but we don’t necessarily provide a safe environment for the people. The risk is still there.� This year’s flood has become another one for the record books, as lake levels rose to nearly the flood level of 1972. Creeks and rivers were all running at

peak levels. Fields that had been covered in manure were covered with water, massive amounts of debris and organic matter went

It is “sportsmen� who are the watchdogs of our natural environment, the same as farmers are the watchdogs of our food supply, who incidentally kill animals but manage their herds. “Sportsmen� do the same.

Lynda Hooper Along with having historical importance to a community, landmarks help us recognize a location without having a specific address. In the Notch Hill valley, there is one such landmark right next to the CPR tracks – a little old abandoned church surrounded with overgrown vegetation, with no formal access apparent. Local engineer Tim Dunne, with historian Louise Barber, each with family history in the Notch Hill area, have taken an interest in restoring the dilapidated church with the bell tower caving through the decaying roof. Friends of the 1922 Notch Hill Church Society is a non-profit organization created with the sole objective to repair the structure. Recently the society was granted permission to access the site, after a considerable effort over most of the past year. Rufus Hammond completed construction of the Notch Hill Catholic Church on his land in October 1922, with the help of several volunteers. The church stayed active until 1970, with the property reverting back to Crown land in the 1980s as a result of unpaid taxes. Team leader and heritage architect Tim Dunne of Omega Engineering in Salmon Arm is volunteering his time and effort toward the project. Many other volunteers will

Dunne stressed the project is a race against time. “It will fall in the next eight months without structural stabilization,” he explained. Dunne has a specific list of lumber required for the reconstruction project. He says it can be used lumber, or old, just so long as its the right length or longer. It can be thicker (rough lumber) and need not be perfectly straight. It must also be free of rot. Once all the materials have been gathered, Dunne expects one full day of construction should do the job. First, the floor of the building will be straightened, then the CPR track endwall, followed by the other walls and roof. “With those straightened,” Dunne continued, “we can begin the permanent stabilization and repairs. These will focus first on the roof structure – some new

trusses plus new plywood sheeting. “We need to leave the big trees up for now, cut away the brush and branches at person level all the way around the building. Trees are shade for us, and they protect the building from wind.” Volunteers will be needed to help out with construction, locating materials and fundraising to get the job done.

Shootout aids Sicamous For the NHLers who hit the greens of Hyde Mountain on Friday for the inaugural Sicamous Shootout, the action may not have been as fast as what they’re used to, but the day was still rewarding. About 40 hockey celebs answered the call of NHL d-men and Sicamous natives Shea Weber and Cody Franson to come play golf in their hometown for a good cause, as did many others. In fact, there wasn’t a golf cart to spare. And, after a full, hot day of golf, event organizers estimate more than $100,000 was raised. As planned, a portion of this will be going to the BC Cancer Foundation. However, at least half that, thanks to Weber, will be going to a disaster relief account set up at the Sicamous branch of the Salmon

heard from the various NHLers, their agents, other golfers, etc., that it was the best charity golf event they’d ever been to. With the bar set so high for the inaugural event, Cross says she and the chamber have their work cut out for them for next year.

Shuswap trail report email hotline now up and running Melting snow, record rainfall, floods, and high winds all take their toll on our regional network of greenway trails, but a determined network of trail stewards keep the pathways open for travel every season. And you can help. The Shuswap Trail Alliance has put a call out to all local and visiting trail users to report on how the trails are holding up out there through a new trail report hotline. The hotline is located at trailreport@shuswaptrails.com and acts as a central clearing house to help get notes

on trail conditions, maintenance issues, and environmental and safety needs to the right place for response. “We recognized there are already an incredible number of people out on the trails wanting to help,” says Carmen Massey with the Shuswap Trail Alliance, “the email hotline is a simple way to connect everyone.” The trail report hotline was created as part of the wider Shuswap Trail Stewardship program being developed throughout the region. The project is being supported in part by a community grant

through Mountain Equipment Co-op, and working partnerships with CSRD Parks, BC Parks, Rec Sites and Trails BC, and local trail stewardship groups. The Shuswap Trail Alliance has developed training, resource materials, and an annual schedule for regional trail maintenance and planning. “It’s a pilot program and a work-in-progress,” acknowledges Massey, noting success will now rest in a commitment by regional partners to continue support for the program.

Kids can ride the bus for free The City of Salmon Arm and the Shuswap Regional Transit System are offering free transit to youth under 18, during summer break, Pro-D days and Christmas break for the remainder of the year.

There is no transit service on statutory holidays and Sundays. Promoting the bus as a safe and available means of transportation, the City of Salmon Arm encourages kids to ride the bus to

their favourite summer activities. Paying customers will be provided priority loading, including bicycle transportation. Drivers may request to see personal identification.

Specials Citizen input sought on palliative care •July Men’s Night Tuesdays By Barb Brouwer

MARKET NEWS STAFF

Nobody should die alone and in pain. Working on this premise, a multi-agency team is looking for ways to improve palliative/end-of-life care in the Shuswap. And they are asking for the public’s assistance in doing this, first by completing a survey and then by attending a public forum to be held in November. Recommendations that arise from this process will be assessed by a regional group comprised of Interior Health, the Division of General Practice North Okanagan (a physician’s group) and the province before being forwarded to the Ministry of Health for possible funding. “Palliative care has been identified as an issue in the Shuswap,” says Dr. Adele Preto, a member of the local group. “They asked us to isolate where the problems are and where improvements can be made.” Preto says that includes assessing the level of care, finding the gaps and getting input from everyone

involved – doctors, nurses, hospice workers and members of the public – to arrive at best-care palliative practice. “Everybody has the right to die in a dignified manner, not in pain and wherever they choose,” she says, noting the busy acute-care setting is not the best choice. “I think most people, given the op-

portunity, would rather die at home, but when that is not possible, we have to find the right environment and the right set-up.” Preto says one has to be sensitive to the person’s need and provide support to family and friends as well as the patient — support that continues following the loved one’s death. “The goal is to help people and their fami-

lies live as well as possible until death.” Preto, who is also president of the Shuswap Hospice Society is joined on the local working committee by Dr. Joan Bratty, Renee Roberge, Interior Health manager community integrated health services, Sharon Whitby also from Interior Health, Claire Scott, Hospice Society board member, and Tracy Kirkman, secretary of the Divisional General Practice North Okanagan Shuswap. Preto says a Canadawide movement and interest by government in funding palliative care makes this a perfect time to talk about it. Preto says good palliative care can be given anywhere, another premise the members of the local group are working on together. Now it’s time for members of the community to have their say. “We need people to come on-board,” says Preto. The survey to assess community opinion is now available in local doctors’ offices, the outpatient lab/commu-

nity care office at the top of Tank Hill and online at www.surveymonkey.com/s/shuswappcare. Hospital patients and their families will also be given an opportunity to express their opinions and concerns about palliative care in the area. The information obtained from the survey will be for data collection purposes only. All survey responses will remain anonymous. The deadline for survey completion is Aug. 31.

Village of Chase Please Take Notice that in accordance with section 124 (3) of the Community Charter, the Village of Chase Council intends to repeal Council Procedures Bylaw No. 747 – 2010 and replace it with Council Procedures Bylaw No. 783 - 2012. Changes to the Village’s Procedures Bylaw are described as follows: Monthly Committee of the Whole meetings have been added and are scheduled to be held on the first Tuesday of each month at 4:00 p.m.; Section 8 (b) has been added. This section establishes a formal process for Council to make public, matters that are no longer considered “In Camera”.

Timber! Locals gathered in Memorial Park Saturday to watch the Stihl Timbersport Series. The event named Mitch Hewitt as the top lumberjack with his father in-law Carl Bischoff coming in second. Featured clockwise from top left – Jill’s single buck; five-year-old Jake Hewitt follows in his fathers footsteps; the axe throwing competition; double-buck competition; the springboard competition; hot sawing; and the standing block-chop.

A definition for “Public Hearing” has been added and section 9 (a) has been amended to more formally accommodate the practice of holding Public Hearings at the beginning of Council meetings. It is anticipated that the Village Council will adopt the new Bylaw at the 4:00 p.m. August 14, 2012 Regular Village Council Meeting to be held at the Village Office located at 826 Okanagan Avenue.

171 Shuswap St. • 250.832.2131

Chase council Village of Chase council meetings have gone to the summer schedule with one meeting per month until October, when there will be once again two meetings, about two weeks apart. There are adjustment weeks necessary, occasionally making for a three week stretch between meetings. A municipality will sometimes put out a request for feedback from citizens. Recently in the Village of Chase, one such request was issued in the local newspaper as well as on the village web site, on the subject of keeping backyard chickens. A the last Village of Chase council meeting, it was decided the issue of backyard chickens should be deferred to next year when the official community plan review takes place. In the meantime, village administrators will continue to gather information not only from the citizens of Chase, but from other municipalities where chickens have been allowed in an urban setting. The next Village of Chase meeting will be Aug. 14.

Typically, the person is immobilized or deceased within two to five years of the initial diagnosis. On Tuesday, July 10, ALS Society of B.C. executive director Wendy Toyer presented golf pros Adam Blair, Frank Antoine and Mitch Buffalo at Talking Rock Golf Course with a certificate of appreciation. Toyer thanked them personally on behalf of the society for their efforts and support of the Golfathon for ALS. On June 20, the trio managed to golf 342 holes for the cause. Donations are currently being accepted at the Pro Shop and online at www.golfathonforals.ca. For more information contact Toyer at 1-778-999-6257.

Tournament It was an enormous success. On Saturday, July 14, the Chase Museum’s Heritage Classic Golf Tournament went on into the night with a dinner, auction and dance, all an enormous success. Forty-eight golfers

from Chase, Kamloops, Red Deer, Williams Lake, Burns Lake and Vancouver came together for a nine hole tournament at Sunshore Golf Club in Chase. Monies raised will help complete the restoration of the Chase Museum. Major prizes for the tournament were donated by golf clubs and other businesses in Kamloops, Salmon Arm and Chase. An additional 84 guests joined the golfers at the Chase Community Hall for the dinner, auction and dance. Auctioneer Willie Dye from Williams Lake kept the audience entertained as he encouraged everyone to participate energetically in the bidding on such items as whitewater rafting trips, zipline packages, fine furniture, hockey and football collectors’ items, art, theatre and concert packages. Several persons and groups who were unable to attend sent in proxy bids so that they too could contribute to the fundraising

effort. Together, the live, silent and bucket auctions generated several thousands of dollars in revenue due to the generosity of the participants. The fundraising effort received an additional boost when Linda Kynoch presented curator Damon Colgan with the final donation from Safety Mart Foods’ annual Community Rewards Program. Music for the evening was provided by Jon Treichel and Kelly Spencer from Kamloops. This talented and versatile duo did an exceptional job of playing music to please the wide range

of ages and tastes represented among the crowd. Kelly and Jon can be heard again in Chase at the annual Cornstock Festival.

Lee was born in New Westminster and was raised and attended school in the Cultus Lake Area. Lee was a member of the Boy Scouts of Canada and was presented the Queen’s Scout Award by the Governor General in Victoria. In his teens, he was a life guard, a skate cop, and a gas jockey. He belonged to the Cultus Lake Swim Club, and at the age of 12, swam the entire length of the lake, beating much older competitors. Lee’s trade as a heavy duty mechanic and his subsequent jobs with the Provincial Highways Department took him all over the province of B.C. Lee has always been in love with his country, particularly the Cariboo. He knew the history and geography of B.C. like the back of his hand and was truly a Canuck at heart. His interests were hot rods and old cars, motorcycles, old guns, hand re-loading, world history, and camping with family and friends. In the 65 years of Lee’s life, he left his mark on all of us. He was a proud man with a gentle heart. He had an infectious sense of humor and an abundance of stories to share. Lee’s absence will be felt by many. He is survived by his wife Connie, daughter Tammy Gendron (Greg), grandson Xavier, and son Mark Ainsworth (Nell), and his sisters Diane Atkins and Lana Graham (Tom).

Lee loved his music – Rock and Roll And he sang it out loud from his soul. He was loving and funny and more. He was the real deal to the core. But his finest charm to the end Was his love of his family and friends. We will miss you Lee and always remember the good times. 100 Mile Funeral Service Ltd. entrusted with the arrangements. 1-877-595-3243 Condolences can be sent to the family care of www.100milefuneralservice.com

ERKKI OLAVI KESKI-SALMI With deep sadness, our family announces the passing of Erkki Olavi Keski-Salmi, Wednesday July 11th in the Intensive Care Unit of the Kamloops Royal Inland Hospital at the age of 79 years young. He is fondly regarded as a man of strength and character, who lived every moment to the fullest. Erkki is survived by his wife Aira and daughter Anne, along with many extended family members in Finland as well as Canada. Erkki was born March 13, 1933 in Kuortane, Finland. He was the oldest son of Arvo and Selma Keski-Salmi and brother to the late Tapani Keski-Salmi and Maire Kokkila. He was eighteen years old when he met his future wife and lifelong partner of fifty four years, Aira Jaatteenmaki. While he had a deep connection to the land as a farmer in Finland, he believed that Canada would offer more opportunities to his wife and young son Reino. He first arrived by himself July 5, 1963 in Revelstoke, BC, with nothing but fifty dollars in his pocket, not a single word of English; yet, armed with a steadfast determination, drive, and resolve to chisel out a life for his family. These characteristics would be evident throughout his life and were reflected in his beloved children. Three days after arriving in Canada, Erkki began work with the Canadian Pacific Railway and was later joined by his wife Aira and son Reino six months later in Sicamous. Eventually the family moved to Canoe, a daughter named Anne arrived and the family moved to Salmon Arm. During this time, he gained employment with the Federated Co-op Sawmill, where he was employed for forty seven years until retiring at the age of sixty three. The story of his retirement was when he was offered an armchair for retirement gift he replied, “Thanks, but a mountain bike would suit me better!” this gift would continue his enjoyment of biking and belief system of keeping fit and staying young. Erkki is remembered for his strong will, work ethics and values, which enabled him to provide a wonderful life for his family and instill these values in his children. He was seen as a “young soul” and would be often heard saying, “I’m only seventy-nine years young!”, and his laugh lines would crinkle into his characteristic big grin. In so many ways Erkki demonstrated his deep love and dedication to his family. His love of nature and outdoor activities was evident in his daily walks about Salmon Arm, his weekly hikes with Markku, time spent at the family cabin at Gardom Lake fishing and cross-country skiing up at Larch Hills. Skiing was a passion and he was one of the founding members of the Larch Hills Ski Club and never missed a memorial Ski Loppet for his late son Reino. He loved his home, his garden and neighbours and often said he never wanted to move. Erkki was full of life and always on the go. He was much loved and will be sadly missed. Funeral Services were held at Bowers Funeral Home, Thursday morning July 19, at 11:00 am. Interment followed in the family plot at Mount Ida Cemetery; a reception followed at Bowers, catered by the Larch Hills Ski Club. In Lieu of flowers, the family is requesting that any donations be made to the Larch Hills Ski Club, for the continued support and development of youth in sport and for the continued maintenance and development of the Larch Hills Ski area. Online condolences can be sent through Erkki’s obituary at www.bowersfuneralservice.com Arrangements are in the care of Bowers Funeral Home, Salmon Arm.

PAYNTON, REUBEN RALPH October 19, 1933 - June 16, 2012 Ralph passed away peacefully at his home in Salmon Arm, BC with his family by his side after a long courageous battle with cancer. Ralph was predeceased by his parents, Thomas (1966) and Selma (1995) Paynton. He is survived by his loving wife Jacqueline of 57 years, his four children, Dwayne (Debbie) of Windlaw, BC, Corrie (Doug) of Fernie, BC, Pat (Ray) and Blair (Derry) both of Kelowna, BC, his siblings, Clifford (Gladys) of San Bernardino, Calf, Delores (Ed) of Edmonton, Alta, Rose (Norman) of White Rock, BC, Larry (Donna) of Burns Lake, BC. He will also be sorely missed by 10 grandchildren and 7 great grandchildren. Ralph was born in Barrhead, Alberta and came to Salmon Arm with his family as a child in 1946. He attended school in Salmon Arm and helped on the family farm in Mt. Ida. Ralph met Jacquie at a dance in Gleneden. They were married in 1955 and made their home in Salmon Arm after their honeymoon to Niagara Fall. Ralph worked hard, but always made time to enjoy the local dances, the lake, and baseball games with friends. Ralph spent a few years working in the forest industry before becoming a dairy farmer in 1958. Ralph and Jacquie worked hand in hand throughout the years. After building up the diary farm to a successful operation, Ralph returned to the forest industry for a few years. Ralph and Jacquie were fortunate to be able to semi retire in 1980 and so began their yearly trek south to Arizona for the winter. Winters were spent perfecting his golf game, exploring the desert, dancing and playing cards with friends. Summers were spent working hard from dawn to dusk as berry growers at their beloved Morningside Farms. With access to all those berries, Ralph successfully tried his hand at wine making, which soon became legendary amongst all that tipped a glass or two with him. Ralph was always able to appreciate the humour of life and kept us all laughing with his stories. He had a great knack for problem solving and inventions. Ralph lead by example and quietly inspired those around him to excel and challenge themselves to be the best that one can be. Words cannot capture how much Ralph will be missed by everyone who knew him, but as a husband, father, brother, uncle, cousin, grandfather, great grandfather and friend, he was one of the best and touched our hearts deeply. Cremation with interment to follow at the Mt. Ida Cemetery Columbarium, Salmon Arm. Arrangements are in the care of Bowers Funeral Home and Crematorium, Salmon Arm. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be sent to the Salmon Arm Hospital Foundation, PO Box 265, Salmon Arm, BC VIE 4N3 Friends and family of Ralph are invited to a Celebration of Ralph’s life, which will take place on Saturday, August 11th, 2012 at his home in Salmon Arm from 1 – 4 p.m. The family would like to thank all those who participated in his care over the years at the Cancer Clinic, Salmon Arm Hospital, Cancer Foundation, and home care workers for their compassion and support during his illness.

Doctor considers move to Enderby

All Rooms are Oceanfront.

By Richard Rolke BLACK PRESS

The hunt for doctors is gaining momentum in Enderby. One physician visited the community Monday to determine if he wants to set up practice there. “It’s pretty good news,” said Coun. Greg McCune. “This is something the community really needs.” The Enderby Health Centre recently lost a doctor who has taken up new duties in Vernon, while another retired in June and the third doctor at the centre is moving to Vancouver in September. Doctors at the health centre operate under contract with the Interior Health Authority. Mayor Howie Cyr met with the prospective physician Monday. “I hope he will decide to move here. He would be a great fit for the community,” said Cyr. The city has initiated a recruitment process in conjunction with the Regional District of North Okanagan and IHA. “The collaboration is excellent. I can’t say enough about the help from IHA,” said Cyr. Enderby and RDNO are funding advertising in a physicians’ magazine as a way of increasing the area’s profile. McCune believes doctors will be attracted to Enderby because of its social and recreational amenities and small town atmosphere. “It’s a great part of the world and it shouldn’t be difficult to attract someone here,” he said. Cyr cautions residents to be patient as the recruitment process proceeds. “There are no doctors yet but we have to maximize our opportunities. There is reason for optimism.”
