School enrolment still in decline By Tracy Hughes MARKET NEWS STAFF

Classes are a little emptier in the North Okanagan-Shuswap School District. With the new year beginning Tuesday, enrolment for 2012/13 is expected to be about 5,952 students in kindergarten to Grade 12. That is down 216 students from last year.

“Our preliminary enrolment figures show we are just below projections at the secondary level, almost bang on at middle school and just above at the elementary grades,” said superintendent Dave Witt on Wednesday. “Unfortunately we expect this trend of declining enrolment to continue for at least another four years.”

A low birth rate is the major influence on enrolment, but there are other factors. “When a family leaves the region, they are off to Alberta to find work,” said Witt, adding that local economic conditions have created significant challenges for some local families. The largest decrease in students is anticipated in the secondary

the first day of school.

Extra-curricular participation up to individual teachers Continued from front ment. A shadow was cast over the last school year because of a labour dispute between teachers and the provincial government. “I hope that with a collective agreement now signed, it will

bring some labour peace and there will be some dialogue with the entire education community,” said Witt, who admits there are still issues of concern for teachers. One outstanding question, though, is whether teachers will begin volunteering for extra-curricular activi-

ties like sports teams and clubs. Those kinds of roles came to an end during the contract dispute. “The B.C. Teachers Federation has said it’s up to teachers,” said Witt. “We’ve heard from some coaches that are anxious to resume those duties.”

Landfill to accept slaughter waste By Barb Brouwer MARKET NEWS STAFF

It’s a potentially dangerous product that will be handled in a safe way. For that reason Columbia Shuswap Regional District directors voted unanimously to approve the containment of “specified risk management” (SRM) material at the Salmon Arm landfill. CSRD waste management co-ordinator Ben Van Nostrand explained to the board Aug. 16 that, based on upgrades in 2010, the landfill has been approved to accept the 10 per cent of slaughter waste that could contain Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy or “mad cow disease,” if the cow was infected. Van Nostrand said SRM will be dealt with in the same manner as asbestos, with the material being doublebagged and buried deep

immediately upon arrival at the landfill. CSRD obtained the best liners available on the market – built to last at least 50 to 100 years, he said. As well, the site will be monitored three times a year. Van Nostrand says accepting SRM at the Salmon Arm landfill – about 8,000 tons annually – would provide economic benefit to a local abattoir that currently ships SRM material to Calgary. “It has been identified by government agencies and Riverside Meats in Silver Creek that a local disposal option would lower the disposal costs and help maintain the viability of this local industry,” wrote Van Nostrand. He assured directors that the Canadian Food Inspection Agency had assessed the landfill using specific criteria and the Ministry of Environment is supportive

of the initiative. He explained that through preventive measures introduced by CFIA, BSE disease has been virtually eradicated in Canada. “The risk of human or livestock infection with the BSE agent from SRM landfilled at the Salmon Arm landfill is extremely low.” Van Nostrand assured directors that under the CSRD bylaw only SRM material from within the regional district would be accepted at the Salmon Arm landfill. “The disease makes me queasy, but after reading the report, I am confident measures have been taken,” said Area F North Shuswap director Larry Morgan. “I will support this.” Satisfied with Van Nostrand’s report and replies to their questions, the board voted unanimously to approve the receipt of SRM at the local landfill.

Family members started the run in the Shuswap, which was their summer home, to help fund memorial athletic awards at the University of Calgary and Eagle River Secondary. Organizer Tim Atkinson reports that while they are still calculating the proceeds, the run raised an estimated $6,000.

Grindrod Hall project hits financial snag By Richard Rolke BLACK PRESS

A community project in Grindrod could hit a cash-crunch without high-level support. Construction of a new community hall is expected to begin Sept. 18, but only half of the required $400,000 budget is in place. That will only get work to the lock-up stage, leaving the interior unfinished. “We hope the federal and provincial governments will come in

on this,” said Herman Halvorson, with the Grindrod Recreation Association. Both levels of government have been lobbied, but no cash is in hand yet. “I have made MP Colin Mayes aware of it and have encouraged him to come out and look at what we’re doing,” said Halvorson. “MLA George Abbott has been helpful and we will be applying for grants.” Halvorson hopes senior government

will see benefits to the project because it will create employment for construction workers, while adding to the long-term viability of Grindrod by attracting families and events. “Last year, there were 132 events in our old hall and we will get far more use in a larger facility,” he said. The present structure, which has been sold to generate revenue for construction, is in poor shape and only fits about 50 people. The new hall will

be in Grindrod Park, home to the annual Garlic Festival. Besides government, there is the possibility of funding coming from the Enderby Lions Club. “We are still looking for community support,” said Halvorson. “There will be businesses that come forward with support.” For more information about fundraising, efforts call Halvorson at 250-838-7407 or Lindsay Kibbe at 250838-6096.

# Wobbly balls will be a new fun feature at the Salmon Arm Fall Fair, which opens Friday evening at the fairgrounds.

Fun, food, fine fare at fall fair Look for some new energy and excitement at this year’s fall fair. Over at the midway, fairgoers will be able to test their bravery by hopping aboard the Kamikaze, a ride that consists of a single stationary tower, supporting two 16-passenger gondolas on rotating arms. During the ride, passengers are swung backwards and forwards to build up momentum, before the gondola performs several inversions. For those who like a gentler experience closer to the ground, Mark Gagnon will be bringing a bunch of wobbly water balls. Climb into a zippered ball, which is inflated around the “rider,” who then tries to walk on water – learning quickly that falling down can sometimes be a great deal of fun. Also added to the entertainment roster is Kris Garwasiuk, a freestyle motocross performer. Garwasiuk was the first 15-yearold in Canada to turn pro in the sport of freestyling and continued on to win the Canadian Championships, appear in two video games, and become the only Canadian to compete

in his sport at the XGames. Thrill seekers can find Garwasiuk at Fifth Avenue between the north and south grounds where he will be performing a number of jaw-dropping stunts. The Salmon Arm Fall Fair is promising some more first-class entertainment at this year’s event, including performances by the king himself. Yes, Elvis will be in the building. Penticton native Adam Fitzpatrick is a favourite to many in Salmon Arm, where he has performed as Elvis, with all the right moves and charismatic singing. Elvis will appear on-stage Saturday, Sept. 8 at 12:45 p.m. with the music of a young Elvis. At 2:30 p.m., he’ll bring the music of Elvis’ 1968 comeback and at 4 he’ll perform the Vegas years. Sunday performances include the young Elvis at 1 p.m. and the Vegas years at 4 p.m. There’s plenty of familiar favourites to enjoy at the fair – antique tractor display, parade, heavy horse pull, scarecrow competition, the Shuswap Idols, and old-time trades such as blacksmithing. The parade begins

at 10:45 a.m. Saturday and spectators are asked to bring nonperishable food items for the Salvation Army Food Bank. As well as expanding activities, the association would like to broaden membership, and extends a warm welcome to anyone who may be interested. “We are looking for volunteers of all ages and walks of life who are passionate about agriculture, commu-

nity events, the fair and maintaining green space in the heart of our community,” says marketing committee representative Cheryl Johnson. “We need volunteers who enjoy light carpentry, public relations, event planning, local history and creating lasting friendships.” For more information, visit or contact the association at

OPINION Remember the kids when on the road As the steady sunshine and scorching temperatures of an Okanagan-Shuswap summer slowly begin to fade away for another year, the first signs of autumn are sure to be just around the corner. The first of those signs made an appearance Tuesday morning as thousands of youngsters across the Okanagan headed off for the first day of a new school year. And with those youngsters caught up in the excitement of seeing classmates again comes a reminder for motorists. Drivers were asked to use extra caution when heading off to work Tuesday morning. But that caution should continue beyond Tuesday. The 30 km-h school zone speed limit is back in effect from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. And the caution should extend beyond just school zones. Drivers are advised to leave a little extra time to reach their destination so they can slow down to keep an eye out for youngsters darting into the road. And if you see a vehicle stopped in front of you or the lane beside you, be prepared to stop as they may be yielding for a young pedestrian. Parents dropping off children in a school zone should always allow them to exit onto the sidewalk side of the vehicle and never allow a child to cross mid-block. Parents should also speak with younger children about the rules of the road. Children should cross at intersections that have a pedestrian crossing light or marked crosswalk wherever possible. It is safer to walk on the inside edge of the sidewalk, away from traffic, and to walk facing traffic if there is no sidewalk so drivers are better able to see you. Police throughout the Okanagan will again be out to enforce the school speed zones, with tickets ranging from $167 to $253. But a momentary lapse in judgment on the part of a driver can carry a far steeper cost. ---Penticton Western News

Rocky year ahead for fish stocks How many times have I bumped my way along some back road, missing one pothole just so that I could hit another, as I made my way into a new fishing hole? You know the type of roads where you invariably lose at least one part of your vehicle along the way, or hit a bump and have everything stashed in your visor fall into your lap as you’re driving along. It would seem that most really good fishing lakes/streams in the southern Interior are usually only accessible by such roads. On the other hand, there are more than 800 lakes in this province that are stocked each year with trout fry and fingerlings as part of the Freshwater Fisheries Society of BC’s efforts to improve accessible recreational fishing opportunities. The FFSBC is responsible for stocking some eight million fish in lakes and streams throughout the province. (Approximately 53 per cent of freshwater angling licence revenues go towards fish stocking programs.) The FFSBC operates five

THE GREAT OUTDOORS James Murray hatcheries and up to 10 field stations in B.C. as well as a number of egg collection stations at various lakes and streams where, for two to four weeks every spring and fall, traps are set to capture wild trout as they head out to spawn in order to attain brood stock from which eggs are collected. All of these facts have upon occasion, as I sat out in my boat casting a line, letting my mind wander as it is often prone to do, brought to the surface the question of just how the FFSBC gets all those little fry into some of the more inaccessible lakes – you know, the really good lakes that are full of hungry, gullible 16- to 24-inch rainbow trout. Actually it only took go-

ing into the FFSBC website to find out that when designated lakes are not easily accessible by road, the fish are released by air. Each year approximately 200 lakes in our province are stocked with fish by helicopter. A 100-foot-long cable is hung below the helicopter with a “fry mover” container dangling at the end. The pilot controls the release of the fish with an electronic switch and the fry are dropped about 20 feet above the water’s surface. While on their website, I also learned that a number of fish population recovery initiatives are being planned/implemented by the FFSBC for specific fish species to prevent extinction in the short-term and to rebuild these fish populations over the longer term. In some cases, changes to the regulations and/or fish habitat restoration and protection is all that would be required to ensure the recovery of some fish populations, especially where fish numbers are extremely low or no natural reproduction is occurring.

Where fish populations face more immediate danger of extinction, more intensive measures may be required, including conservation fish culture methods and a more tailored restocking program. (Conservation fish culture differs from more traditional fish culture in that the goal is to preserve genetic integrity and aid in rebuilding native populations, rather than augmenting existing fish populations, or simply providing angling opportunities.) Of course there are currently already any number changes to regulations pertaining to the protection of fish habitat that are a direct result of the federal government slipping them past with their Omnibus Bill C-38 – none of which are all that beneficial to the poor fish. Any way you look at it, the proverbial road ahead for fish stocks in our province appears to be a relatively rocky one, and I for one am thankful that the Freshwater Fisheries Society of BC is working hard to maintain and preserve both the wild and stocked fish populations in our lakes and streams.

ing to go forward with the sale of this block to the highest bidder. Being that I spent 32 years in the logging industry, I understand the possible impact it could have on the contractor that wins the bid. Knowing that there is so much opposition and controversy involved with this block, (K1K7), would it be fair for the BCTS, to sell this block, to guys who are just trying to feed their families? How many other communities are being treated with this dis-respect? Perhaps this question should be

investigated. Our community is reaching out to anyone who will help support our concern. Please contact our MLA George Abbott, the B.C. Forest Minister, Steve Thompson, NDP Forest critic Norm Macdonald, and let them know that you support out efforts. If we all stand together, we can stop this kind of bullying. The BCTS is a government body that employs servants of the public and works for the public. When the public speaks this loudly, they need to listen.

With regards to the devastating, proposed logging in one of the most pristine areas in the Shuswap, I reach out to the public for support to help protect White Lake from the needless cutting of this young, healthy stand of timber. It is a 16-hectare block, that will gut the heart right out of the White Lake community. The BC Timber Sales (BCTS) refuses to discuss the issue with the community, after letting the logging slide for nine years past its proposed logging date. They insist on continu-

Resignation hoopla unfounded Why is the media making such a big deal about the decision of three BC Liberal cabinet ministers not to run in the next provincial election? The media acts as though this has never happened before and seem to be suggesting that something earth-shaking is going on. Well, I’ve got news for the media: The political history of British Columbia shows that this is the normal state of affairs. Prior to the last provincial election in 2009, for example, there were six BC Liberal cabinet

ministers who decided not to run again. These were Carole Taylor, Claude Richmond, Richard Neufeld, Olga Illich, Rick Thorpe, and Tom Christensen. Likewise, in 2005, five BC Liberal cabinet ministers decided not to run again. Currently there are eighteen people in the BC Liberal cabinet and only three have announced they are not going to run again. By my calculation that means 15 BC Liberal cabinet ministers (at this point) are planning to run again in the provin-

cial election next May. So, why has the media failed to make note of this important and much more significant fact? I can only conclude that the media has been having a very slow news month and as a result is looking for almost anything they can jazz up and make into a something resembling news. Greg von Euw Editor’s note: More resignations have been tendered since the letter’s submission.

The first takes place Wednesday, Sept. 12 at Shuswap Lake Estates Lodge and the second is on Tuesday, Sept. 18 at Sorrento Memorial Hall. Both forums

# Juno-nominated British Columbia musical sensation, Lillix, will perform this Saturday as part of Sorrento 100.

Pop-rocking celebration Sorrento turns up the heat with its 100th anniversary celebration by booking a international music sensation to take the stage. They came from humble beginnings but have since taken the world by storm. Now the musical sensation will return to British Columbia to help Sorrento celebrate their 100th anniversary with musical style. Lillix fans will be pleased to learn that the B.C. band, who made it big after their hit single It’s About Time skyrocketed up the charts, will be coming back home to play in a free outdoor concert. The pop/rock group, which was formed in 1997 in Cranbrook under the name Tigerlily, has since had a number of hits, some of which have appeared on a number of movie

soundtracks, including Freaky Friday starring Lindsay Lohan, with their song What I Like About You. The band has opened for music legends such as Aerosmith & KISS, toured internationally and has gathered diverse fan base of their own. The band’s members may have changed, but their unique sound remains the driving force that keeps them in the charts song after song. Lillix will follow a day’s worth of events and activities, such as the Show and Shine, and Family Fun Festival that have been planned to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Sorrento. The Juno-nominated band will take the stage at Sorrento-Blind Bay Park at 7 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 8 and will entertain the crowd for free until 10.

Country of ballads and bards By Cavelle Layes MARKET NEWS STAFF

A Blind Bay resident is giving back to the community whose beauty helped inspire him to rediscover his own musical roots. Duane Stewart has become somewhat of a local fixture in the Shuswap musical community. He is an active member and part of the committee of a local gospel group and has arranged the Gospel Music Jamboree for four years in a row. His creation, the Gospel Song, a two -hour show packed with musical entertainment takes place in Sorrento each year and just celebrated its fifth birthday. Stewart has also Duane Stewart branched out into other genres of music, taking on a country flavour, stemming back to his years growing up in Alberta. He enjoys nothing more than to travel around singing country-style shows at different venues throughout British Columbia and Alberta. Stewart wasn’t always so tapped into his musical side however. While music was a major part of his life as a youth, he admits that once he entered university he set his sights on his studies and finding a career. Once he pushed his music to the side, he says he never really looked back, until he moved to the Shuswap. When he moved to Blind Bay in hopes of retiring, he discovered the enormous musical talent within the area. It was this talent, along with the beautiful landscapes that triggered something within Stewart, that made him pick up his guitar once again. “It was only a little bit at first, I played here and there, and each time I picked up the guitar I would play a little longer.” Now Stewart is a regular face on the stages of Alberta country music festivals such as the Trail End show he will be taking part in just a few weeks. Stewart is thankful he was able to rediscover his old passion, and gives the Shuswap full credit for helping him find his way. In response, he has made it his mission to bring as much music to the area as he can, which is why he created Ballads and Bards. It is also the reason that when Stewart had the opportunity to ask world-renowned artist Doris Daley to perform at one of his shows in the Shuswap, he jumped on it. “She is so talented, and I know the people here will really appreciate her work,” says Stewart, who claims to have been personally moved by her

musical performances. Daley has toured Canada and the United States this year and will be continuing to Utah after her stop in Blind Bay. She is an accomplished musician, author and poet, through which she shares her passion for the old wild west wherever she goes. Once Stewart had Daley signed on, he designed an entire show around her, and Ballads and Bards was formed. When asked what spectators might expect, Stewart said his goal is to put on a wholesome show that celebrates the feeling of down-home, wherever home may be. “There is a quote from one of Daley’s poems that best describes the theme I would like the show to exude,” says Stewart. “A hundred years from now, if the world’s still in the game, may the earth recall our footprints, may the wind sing out our name. May someone turn a page and hearken back upon this time. May someone sing a cowboy tune and someone spin a rhyme.” “Isn’t that beautiful?” asks Stewart. Also playing at the show will be Blind Bay residents, Larry and Jane Stephenson, who are well-known in the area from their years in the Carlin X’ing bluegrass band. The pair will be performing their new duo act that Stewart describes as a contemporary folk with a traditional feeling. “There will be toe-tapping, hand-clapping, and everyone can feel free to sing along. There will be both new and old western country and an equal amount of Daley. Of course Stewart himself will be taking the stage, showcasing his country repertoire. “I come from an era when it wasn’t country, it was country-western,” he says, explaining this is the type of sound he will be performing at the show. Tickets to Ballads and Bards cost $12 and Doris Daley can be bought at the door or pre-purchased from Acorn Music or Touch’A Texas in Salmon Arm or at the Sorrento Centre or the Shuswap Lake Estates Community Centre, where the show will take place. Stewart says that he doesn’t plan to make any money from the show, explaining that the amount being charged will allow them to just break even. “It isn’t about making money, it was about bringing a great performer to the Shuswap because I know the people here will appreciate it.” Stewart says there will be a chance for guests to mingle among the musicians, including Daley herself, throughout the night. The show runs at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 20.

Go green – the darker, the better We all know it’s important to include a variety of vegetables in our diet. All vegetables are good, but some are packed with more nutrients than others. Some of the top contenders in nutritional value include kale and spinach. These dark greens are an excellent source of vitamin K, vitamin C and vitamin A. They are also a great source of the antioxidant lutein, which is thought to promote healthy eyes. These veggies are green in more ways than one. Eating dark greens this time of year is an environmentally friendly choice as local gardens are overflowing. Reduce food miles by buying your greens at your local farmers’ market. Sick of spinach salads? Spinach can easily be preserved for later use. Blanch spinach in boiling water for one minute. Rinse in cold water and drain or squeeze off the extra moisture. Pack in freezer bags or containers

and freeze for future use in lasagne, spanakopita, spinach dip or frittatas. Not sure what to do with kale? You’re not alone! Kale tends to be tough so it is best when cooked. It can be steamed, sautéed or simmered. Remove the tough stems, tear or chop the leaves into bite sized pieces and steam until bright green and tender (approximately 10 minutes). Add your favourite dressing to flavour and serve as a side dish. Or you can sauté it with garlic and onions and top with lemon juice and a sprinkle of salt. When cooking grains such as rice or quinoa, you can add a large handful of chopped kale and some fresh herbs to the pot and let it cook with the grain. Lemon Kale 2 Tbsp canola oil 1 onion, finely chopped 2 cloves garlic, crushed ¼ tsp salt ¼ tsp pepper 1 tsp lemon rind, grated

½-1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice (depending on preference) 10 cups kale, chopped ¾ cup water In large pot, heat the oil over medium heat. Add onion, garlic, salt and pepper and cook until softened. Stir in kale and lemon rind. Continue to stir for about a minute or until the kale is slightly wilted. Add 3/4 cup water; cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until kale is tender (about 10 minutes).

Finally, stir in the lemon juice and cook uncovered for another minute or two until the liquid has cooked off. Serve as a side dish. Pairs well with fish. Author Simone Jennings is a community nutritionist with Interior Health.

Pain, fear and despair overwhelm hope and lead some to take their own lives. “We need to continue to work as hard as we can to learn more about the root causes of suicide, then work even harder to try to prevent more families from having to endure what families who have lost a loved one to suicide are having to endure right now,” says Monica Kriese, co-ordinator of Monday’s Suicide Prevention event to be held at Marine Park. “The mental health aspect of suicide is very real. “The more we know, the better we understand, the better our chances are of making a solid difference in preventing these lifechanging events from occurring.” The Shuswap Suicide Prevention Committee is working to reduce suicide and its impact in the Shuswap. “We want to end the silence. We want to ease the suffering, to heal our communities and our neighbours,” says Kriese. “Some of us are survivors of loss, some of us have been depressed and felt hopelessness.

SILVERBACKS SPOTLIGHT If he’s not your teammate, you probably don’t like him very much. A sentiment that would surely be echoed by BCHL players who don’t share a dressing room with one half of Terrace’s gift to Salmon Arm;

Brendan Kennedy. A solid 17 year old rookie season for twins, Brendan and Jeff, has them poised for more action following a summer that spanned from a trip to Sweden to work on a farm and in the gym, “Jeff and I had a trainer three times a week in Terrace and we worked just as much with him as we did without him.” The off-season for the BCHL this spring and summer was just under six months, but that seemed too long for Brendan and his brother “We’ve been in the interior all August, two weeks in Penticton on the ice getting game ready before heading up to Salmon Arm.” Brendan says the change in the aura of the SilverBacks is night and day, “Not just around the team either but in the community there’s a positive push from all our excited fans. Not only that, but the guys are bonding and getting along really well so early into the season.” The defender who can be identified by his trademark off-ice glasses is looking to add a bit more offensive production this season. Since sibling rivalries are part of the fabric of hockey, Brendan does admit his brother Jeff has a skill that he’d like to acquire, “He finds a way to run into people; more than I can. He has the ability to get out there and bang and crash on a consistent basis.” Your SilverBacks open the Regular Season this weekend at the Inaugural BCHL Showcase in Chilliwack, when they face off against West Kelowna on Saturday and Nanaimo on Sunday. Look for the SilverBack Spotlight next week to find out what Jeff Kennedy thinks about the upcoming season and his brothers on ice repertoire.

The race for the Arctic begins GLOBAL VIEWS Gwynne Dyer Russian television contacted me last month, asking me to go on a program about the race for Arctic resources. The ice is melting fast and it was all the usual stuff about how there will be big strategic conflicts over the seabed resources — especially oil and gas — that become accessible when it’s gone. The media always love conflict and, now that the Cold War is long gone, there’s no other potential military confrontation between the great powers to worry about. Governments around the Arctic Ocean are beefing up their armed forces for the coming struggle, so where are the flashpoints and what are the strategies? It’s great fun to speculate about possible wars. In the end, I didn’t do the interview because Skype didn’t work, so I didn’t get the chance to rain on their parade. But, here’s what I would have said to the Russians if my server hadn’t gone down at the wrong time:

First, you should never ask the barber if you need a haircut. Armed forces in every country are always looking for reasons to worry about impending conflict, because that’s the only reason their governments will spend money on them. Sometimes they will be right to worry and sometimes they will be wrong — but, right or wrong, they will predict conflict. Like the barbers, it’s in their professional interest to say you need their services. So, you’d be better off to ask somebody who doesn’t have a stake in the game. As I don’t own a single warship, I’m practically ideal for the job. And, I don’t think there will be any significant role for the armed forces in the Arctic, although there is certainly going to be a huge investment in exploiting the region’s resources. There are three separate resources in the Arctic. On the surface, there are sea lanes opening up to commercial traffic along the northern coasts of Russia and Canada. Under the seabed, there are potential oil and gas deposits that can be drilled once the ice retreats. In the water between, there is the planet’s last unfished ocean. Sea lanes are mainly a Canadian obsession because the Stephen Harper government

believes the Northwest Passage that weaves between Canada’s Arctic islands will become a major commercial artery when the ice is gone. Practically every summer, Harper travels north to declare his determination to defend Canada’s Arctic sovereignty from — well, it’s not clear from exactly whom, but it’s a great photo-op. Canada is getting new Arctic patrol vessels and building a deepwater naval port and Arctic warfare training centre in the region, but it’s all much ado about nothing. The Arctic Ocean will increasingly be used as a shortcut between the North Atlantic and the North Pacific, but the shipping will not go through Canadian waters. Russia’s northern sea route will get the traffic because it’s already open and much safer to navigate. Then there’s the hydrocarbon deposits under the Arctic seabed, which the U.S. Geological Survey has forecast may contain almost one-fourth of the world’s remaining oil and gas resources. But, from a military point of view, there’s only a problem if there is some disagreement about the seabed boundaries. There are only four areas where the boundaries are disputed.

Two are between Canada and its eastern and western neighbours in Alaska and Greenland, but there is zero likelihood of a war between Canada and the United States or Denmark (which is responsible for Greenland’s defence). In the Bering Strait, there is a treaty defining the seabed boundary between the United States and Russia, signed in the dying days of the Soviet Union, but the Russian Duma has refused to ratify it. However, the legal uncertainty caused by the dispute is more likely to deter future investment in drilling there than to lead to war. Then there was the seabed boundary dispute between Norway and Russia in the Barents Sea, which led Norway to double the size of its navy during the past decade. Last year, however, the two countries signed an agreement dividing the disputed area right down the middle and providing for joint exploitation of its resources. So, no war between NATO (of which Norway is a member) and the Russian Federation. Which leaves the fish — and it’s hard to have a war over fish. The danger, rather, is the world’s fishing fleets will crowd in and clean the fish out, as they are currently doing in the Southern Ocean

around Antarctica. If the countries with Arctic coastlines want to preserve this resource, they can only do so by creating an international body to regulate the fishing. And, they will have to let other countries fish there, too, with agreed catch limits, since it is mostly international waters. They will be driven by their own interests to co-operate. So, no war over the Arctic. All we have to worry about now is the fact the ice is melting, which will speed global warming (because open water absorbs far more heat from the sun than does highly reflective ice) and, ultimately, melt the Greenland ice cap and raise sea levels worldwide by seven metres (23 feet). But, that’s a problem for another day. Gwynne Dyer’s columns appear in publications in 45 countries.

CHASE Keeping pace with BC’s best By Cavelle Layes MARKET NEWS STAFF

Three small-town heroes have returned home after learning a lesson in camaraderie and setting the bar high for those who follow. Bill Currie, Jordan McGee and Rob Greenaway recently competed against more than 30 fire departments from across British Columbia, making their mark on the 2012 Fire Fighter Games. The annual event held each year in Prince George is designed to test the skill and endurance of the top firefighters in the area. This year, however, an invitation was sent out to fire departments in both large and small districts across the province, widening the playing field, and stiffening the competition. Brent Chamberlain, Chase fire chief, had been vacationing in Prince George last year while the event was taking place, and saw it as a great opportunity for his own department. He pitched the idea to some crew members, and a three-man team was soon formed. “I was going to compete in it myself,” says Chamberlain, “but something came up and I had to get a replacement.” The three-day-long event has several competitions firefighters can take part in, including a number of team challenges such as circuit and bucket brigade, as well as a variety of individual challenges. While the Fire Fighter Games are meant to be fun, Chamberlain says the events were all challenges his crew would need to do on calls in Chase. The Chase representatives had to treat the challenges the same way they would an actual call; performing each challenge as

quickly and efficiently as possible. All three men took part in every individual competition available, while Greenaway paired up with 100 Mile House for the team challenges as well. Greenaway was ultimately able to take eighth place alongside his temporary crew. “I am very proud of how they did,” says Chamberlain, pointing out that his crew beat many of the larger fire departments from other areas despite it being their first time in the event. Since the events in the competition are so similar to call-out situations, such as motor vehicle accidents, See Getting on pg. 20

Fishing for the hamper society Chase residents helped support a local cause while taking advantage of a day of stress-free fishing. More than 40 people showed up to take part in the third annual fishing derby held in Chase on Aug. 25. Rod Crowe, Chase councillor and host of the event, says it was a great success. The popular derby is not only a good way to bring the community together, but also helps support the Chase Hamper Society, he explains. “This is the second year for donating,” he says. “It started when the hot water tank broke at the Chase hall, caus-


# At the popular Chase Fishing Derby, Sven Erickson was one of many who won a prize. ing water to leak downstairs. The hamper society lost over $1,000 worth of food.” It was in response to this community need that Crowe decided that half of all entry fees would be donated to the

hamper society, and the tradition has carried on. Crowe proudly says that thanks to local sponsors, everyone who took part in the event went home with a prize. “Everyone had fun, I

think – anytime you get a group of people out fishing it is fun.” The Chase councillor designed the annual derby to be free of any kind of pressure. He explains that anglers do not need to stick to a certain dock or area; they can go anywhere they feel comfortable. That eliminates large groups fishing in one focused area. The prize money is also given out differently than most. Instead of going to the largest fish, Crowe says there is a weight draw, where a number is pulled out of a hat and whoever has a fish closest to that size gets the money.

Getting Games would benefit community Continued from pg. 19 structure fires, or simply loading equipment, the three local representatives prepared for the event by simply taking calls and attending weekly practices. “We have a pretty good team here,” says Chamberlain. For Currie, McGee and Greenaway the event was considered to be a great success, each saying they took home something from their experience. “It was a lot of fun,” says Greenaway. “You get to meet a lot of firefighters from different houses.” Currie agrees, adding that it was the camaraderie that caught his attention. On the final day of the event, a female firefighter from a different department was trying to complete a challenge.

She was towards the end, but was struggling, explains Currie. She was about to give up when a group of other firefighters stepped in and helped her finish. “It is a challenge, and we are all there to compete against one another, but the camaraderie is still there, we are still helping each other out.” This, says Chamberlain, is what the Fire Fighter Games are truly about. “It is all about team building.” On the scene of an accident, or at a burning building, fire crews must rely on one another to save lives and keep each other safe. Team building is a major part of that. The competition did cost a small fee which was paid out of the firefighters’ own pockets. All three opted out of a hotel, choosing to stay at a relative’s house in-

stead, says Chamberlain. The event was able to provide Chase with some provincewide exposure, without costing the village a cent. The money raised through the fees went towards some of Prince George’s smaller fire departments, says Chamberlain. He says the games

are a great idea and he hopes to not only send members to next year’s Firefighter Games in Prince George, but would also like to bring the games to Chase as well. It is fun for the crew and the community, says Chamberlain, and will help bring a little extra fundraising to the area.

“It levels the playing field and makes it fun for everyone,” says Crowe. The councillor would not guarantee that the fishing derby would be taking place again next year but did not eliminate the idea. “There is definitely a demand for it.”

“The last dock you’ll ever need!”

Team fashion show Sept. 23 What started as a way to bring people together, have some fun and do some good has evolved into an annual event, and the group responsible is enlisting the help of the Chase community. Eight years ago, a group of women from Chase decided to take part in the Weekend to End Women’s Cancer event in Vancouver. It wasn’t intended to be anything big, explains Diana Endean, a member of Team Chase. The community came together and sent down a total of six walkers with 18 supporters and was able to raise $26,000. “From a small community, that is a lot of work,” says Endean. This success has since inspired the group of Chase residents to continue to come to-

gether each year. While the people who have made up the group have changed throughout the years, the intent remains the same. “The only reason we can to do this is because we have so much support from the community,” says Endean. Team Chase continues to raise money for cancer but has narrowed the focus since its inception, now donating all funds raised to CIBC’s Run For The Cure. Endean explains the decision was made because more of the money, which is donated in large part by the community, will stay in the area instead of being sent away. This was an important factor for Team Chase. Endean is proud to say the team regularly

wins the Most Funds Raised By Family and Friends award at the Run For The Cure event. Initially the group raised money by donning their now somewhat signature cowboy hats, and square dancing at local events, anniversaries and the like. The group no longer dances, but instead opted for a number of other fundraising opportunities, including their annual spring Pink Ribbon Classic golf tournament, which has just experienced its second successful year. One of their more popular events and a major fundraiser is their Fall Fashion Show, which is just around the corner. This year’s fashions will be provided by Suzanne’s, which has locations in both Kamloops and Salmon Arm,

with clothes for women from young adult and up, at any size. “Jewelry, handbags and other accessories will also be included in the clothing lines,” says an excited Endean. Endean says the designs will be dressy casual and will suit anyone. “Whether they are planning to take a cruise, or a trip down South for the winter, or plan on braving the cold, there will be something there for them.” Team Chase would like to add a men’s line to the show; however they are still looking for male models to volunteer their time. Team Chase will be heading to Kamloops to take part in the walk Sept. 30 and are looking at sending 12 to 15 participants. There are only 100

SANDRA GORE The family of Sandra Gore, formerly of Shuswap Lake Estates, wish to inform friends of her passing August 16, 2012. To help celebrate Sandy and her new adventures we’d like you to join us on an Okanagan Lake Tour the afternoon of Saturday, September 22, on board the Boardroom Executive Houseboat. Please contact the family for more details.

MERCER, TAFFY DALE June 13, 1953 – September 2, 2012 Words alone cannot convey the depth of our sadness at the passing of Taffy Dale Mercer (nee Lind). Taffy leaves behind her husband, Garth and daughter, Chelsea. She is also survived by her three sisters and one brother: Cynthia (Michael) O”Connell of Port Moody, British Columbia; Debbie (Gordon) Hegland of Big River, Saskatchewan; Iris (Max) Powell of St John’s, Newfoundland and Mark (Marian) Lind of White Rock, British Columbia. After a long and hard fought battle with cancer, Taffy passed away on Sunday, September 2. But this illness was not what defined her. She was magnificent at almost everything she undertook. Taffy had graduated with an RN in 1981 and was known as an exemplary nurse. She worked initially at the Royal Columbian Hospital in New Westminster and then for many years at Shuswap Lake General Hospital. She loved to travel, meet new people and embrace new experiences, with outdoor sports being high on the priority list. But her true passion over the years was nurturing and caring for her daughter, Chelsea. She was an amazing mother even as the disease took hold and drained her of her energy. She would still embrace every aspect of Chelsea’s young life and offer her guidance. A special thanks for the wonderful care and support that Taffy received from the Shuswap Community Care team, Shuswap Lake General Hospital staff and Shuswap Hospice Society. A warm thanks as well to her many friends that were unconditionally there for her throughout her illness. In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate memorial donations to the Shuswap Hospital Foundation or the Shuswap Hospice Society. Taffy was a gift to all who knew her and we will be remembering her at a service on Saturday, September 8th, 11:00 AM, at River of Life Community Church located at Shuswap Lake Estates, lower level, 2405 Centennial Drive in Blind Bay. Online condolences may be sent to Taffy’s obituary at

COFFEY, JOHN THOMAS February 8, 1948 - September 1, 2012 It is with heavy hearts we announce the passing at home of John Coffey, on Saturday, September 1, 2012. He is survived by his loving wife Linda, daughters Erin (Peter) & Tanya, sisters Marsha (Ewart) & Debra (Dale) and brother Bob (Gisele), plus cousins, aunts & many friends. John was a teacher at J.L. Jackson School for many years and after retirement a cornerstone for the Shuswap Trail Alliance and an avid gardener. A casual dress Celebration of Life gathering will be held at the Coffey family residence on Friday, September 7 from 2 pm – 4 pm. In lieu of flowers, please make donations in John’s memory to The Shuswap Trail Alliance, Box 1531, Salmon Arm, V1E 4P6, The Canadian Cancer Society, 111 Lakeshore Dr. N.E., Salmon Arm, V1E 2V7 or a charity of your choice. The family extends a huge thank you to family, friends, the medical community, Friends Abreast paddling team and so many others who have supported us through this difficult time.

CLASSACTION Everyone’s got talent. You’re never too old to learn new tricks. Taking a night class or a series of lessons might start out as just a pleasant way to pass time, but be prepared to discover a new passion that will contribute to your personal fulfillment. Guitar, stained glass, watercolor painting, photography, computers, yoga: the choice of activities and classes is virtually endless! If you’re a parent, one of your roles is to ensure

that your children are aware of all the different activities open to them. Learning new skills will help them discover their talents and increase their feeling of self-worth outside of academic success. They will learn one of life’s great lessons at a young age: that a hobby is a necessary escape from daily life in order to find balance and the ability to cope with stress. Perhaps they will continue to cultivate this newfound interest for

many years to come! Or perhaps they will wander from one interest to another only to go back to one of them as an adult. Whatever the case, they will expand their horizons and develop their self-esteem. Are you retired or about to be? It’s never too late to

discover talents which up to now have lain dormant. Traveling and relaxation cannot possibly fill all the spare time that is now available to you. All types of classes can give a sense of purpose to this new stage of your life and allow you to grow to your full potential.

2012 - 2013 Registration Sept 11 - 16 Daily 3 - 6 p.m. at the Mall at Piccadilly, Salmon Arm Ages 3-103

ERIC PETERSEN 1939 - 2012 It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Eric Petersen August 26th, 2012 at Shuswap Lake General Hospital after a brief struggle with cancer. Eric was predeceased by his son, Jason in 2000, both parents, Carl and Frieda Petersen, and his sister Elsie. He leaves to miss him his wife of 47 years, Peggy of Salmon Arm, son Chris, daughter-in-law Jennifer and grandson Marcus, of Campbell River, B.C. Also an extended in-law family with many neices and nephews, in particular Jim and Sherry Stevenson of Lloydminster, Alberta. Eric worked in construction, starting in Castlegar in 1967 on the Arrow Dam, then Hudson’s Hope on the Bennett Dam. He moved his family to Mica Creek in 1973 and lived in the Columbia/Shuswap District until his passing. He was in Revelstoke 17 years, and retired to Sicamous for 14 years, and finally moved to Salmon Arm in 2008. His happiest working years were as the original owner/operator of the “Rebel” Boom Truck Service in Revelstoke, BC. Eric so enjoyed meeting or bumping into his old construction buddies, and maintained friendships with many of them throughout his life. He will be sadly missed. We welcomed friends and family to his home to celebrate his life on Friday August 31st. Internment will be at a later date at Mount Ida Cemetery beside his son Jason. In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate a donation to the Terry Fox Foundation in Eric’s memory. Arrangements were conducted by both Fischers and Bowers Funeral Homes.

MACKINTOSH, PETER KILGOUR (1924 – 2012) Peter Kilgour passed away peacefully on Wednesday, August 29, 2012, after a short illness, in Vernon Jubilee Hospital. Peter was born in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, but grew up in the Okanagan Valley. Throughout his life, he was an avid outdoorsman; enjoyed photography, hiking and fly fishing. He also had a passion for woodworking, winemaking and gardening, and a tremendous ability to repair anything mechanically or electrically if needed. Peter was always a very practical man. He had a distinguished career, working in broadcast communications for over 30 years. He was Engineering Manager for Moffat Broadcasting stations CKLG AM and CFOX FM throughout the 1960’s and 70’s at the peak of their success. He returned to his much-loved Okanagan in the late 70’s, working at CKXR radio, while he planned and built his dream home, at Eagle Bay, on Shuswap Lake. Peter’s expanded family includes 3 sons, Michael, James (Laura) and Ian (Holly) by first wife Pamela (deceased). He was re-married to his loving wife Mary in 1988, whose family warmly welcomed him, including Jack (Lisa), Helena (Rick), and Ingrid. Together, Mary and Peter have 14 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren. Peter was quiet and thoughtful, but was gifted with a clever sense of humour. He was quick to make a joke and enjoyed teasing his daughters-in-law. He had a capacity to make the people he cared about feel very special. He was a regular volunteer to his church groups at St Martins (North Vancouver), and Eagle Bay, in support of their service clubs.
