Two Blind Bay beaches were re-opened last Friday after e-coli levels dropped back down to acceptable levels, but the incident is renewing concern over water quality in Shuswap Lake. Interior Health recommended the beaches be closed early last week following a huge and sudden spike in e-coli counts – to 3,000 colony forming units. By late last week, e-coli levels were back in acceptable ranges of 28 in the sandy portion of the beach and five in the pebble area. Federal guidelines require reporting to health authorities if recreational water values exceed 400 e-coli colony forming units. Interior Health Protection team leader Jen Jacobsen said the likely culprit in the e-coli spike was goose feces. Jacobsen says the geese are often in greater numbers at this time of year, congregating prior to their annual migration. But Shuswap Lake Integrated Planning Process (SLIPP) officials are still planning to keep a close eye on the situation in a measurable way. While regular weekly water samples would indicate the presence of e-coli, they do not reveal whether the strain is from animal or human sources, or if it is deadly 0157:H7 of the Walkerton tragedy. SLIPP is now sampling the Blind Bay area for the source of e-coli. See E-coli on page 2

E-coli source still unknown

DEPRESSION RECOVERY PROGRAM Two Identical FREE Introductory Sessions

Continued from front A process called bacterial source tracking will be used, according to a SLIPP press release. “Essentially, if the signal of e-coli is sufficient, scientists will be able to determine the source of the issue,” says the release. “Biological source tracking can determine if the source is potentially caused by waterfowl, humans or other.” Samples were taken earlier this week and the results will take about three to four weeks. Shuswap Water Action Team president and SLIPP public advisory committee member, Ray Nadeau, says the elevated presence of e-coli in Blind Bay is indeed cause for concern. “The e-coli could be from a number of sources including hillside development runoff – groundwater is flowing down near the beach – or from sewer discharges from large boats in the adjacent marina,” says Nadeau. “As you know, there is no place to discharge

Interior Health officials have long warned against drinking from any surface water source because of the possible presence of bacteria and parasites. “A couple of thousand people have properties around the lake and unless they’re on a municipal system, most have their own water line,” says Nadeau, not-

ing that while the water can be treated, not everyone treats it to the right degree. “It’s not even safe for cooking if it’s not treated properly.” Meanwhile, SLIPP is continuing to monitor lakes across the Shuswap in order to protect long-term drinking water quality and ecosystem health.

SHUSWAP Boating safety campaign declared a success By Roger Knox BLACK PRESS

An education campaign aimed at improving boating safety in the North OkanaganShuswap is paying off. Vernon-North Okanagan RCMP reservists working the police boat report a very good year on the water in the region. “They achieved their goal of not having any boating-related deaths or injury in our area this summer,” said RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk. The two officers found overall that boaters are getting much better with complying with the boating regulations, and credit that to a lot of education this year instead of charging the

boaters. “Many boaters thanked them for being on the water and making things safer out there,” said Molendyk. More than 1,000 boats (including kayaks, canoes and paddleboards) were checked on Wood, Kalamalka, Okanagan, Mabel, Mara and Shuswap lakes, though officers were somewhat limited in the Shuswap region in the early spring because of high water levels. A total of 630 warnings were issued for non-compliance of regulations, and 12 boats were taken off lakes due to equipment issues (too many articles missing from the boat). More than 20 charges were laid over the summer. Twelve

boaters were written up for having no licence; five were ticketed for not having a spotter while towing an individual; four people were charged after an underage person was caught operating a personal water craft, or Sea-Doo; and one boat was charged for not having enough life-jackets. “All charges were laid under the Canada Shipping Act,” said Molendyk. “Again, the focus was on education instead of charging everyone. It is apparent the boat education/enforcement program is working.” Six boat operators were given roadside screening devices – it is an offence to operate a boat impaired by alcohol or drugs – and all six passed the tests.

Shuswap considered as part of Ironman bid plan By Richard Rolke BLACK PRESS

JAMES MURRAY/MARKET NEWS

All hung up

# To the amusements of Shuswap Middle School students, Flying Bob pretends to get his clothes entangled in a highwire during his appearance Friday.

A win for Centenoka Mall? Although rumours are rampant regarding the possibility of a Winners store coming to Centenoka Park Mall, owner Lance Johnson isn’t saying. “I can’t confirm or

deny,” he told the Shuswap Market News. “There is no agreement whatsoever. We are in negotiations with lots of different department stores. We are talking with a couple of

different ones; hopefully we can make an announcement before Christmas.” Winners’ head office did not return phone calls before presstime.

North OkanaganShuswap communities are weighing the pros and cons of Ironman. Vernon is considering a bid for Ironman Canada, and as part of the process, nearby jurisdictions are being asked about possible involvement. “Coldstream is most obviously essential, but three potential routes have been identified and they also go through Spallumcheen, Armstrong, Enderby, Lake Country and Salmon Arm,” said Rob Sawatzky, Vernon mayor. With the event in-

cluding a 180-kilometre bicycle ride, many rural roads would be closed and the participating jurisdiction would be responsible for traffic control. “We have to look at the costs and what are the pay-backs to the broader community and Coldstream specifically,” said Jim Garlick, Coldstream mayor. “How will we run the community during the event when roads are closed?” Enderby council will discuss the matter Monday. “We want to see where we would fit in and what tangible ben-

efits there would be for our community,” said Mayor Howie Cyr. “But we also have to look strategically and at what exposure the whole region would get from such an event.” Spallumcheen and Armstrong have already thrown their support behind a potential bid. “I think this would bring a lot of people to the North Okanagan and bring them to our communities,” said Chris Pieper, Armstrong mayor. “I’m quite sure there will be some financial commitment and volunteering.” There is pressure on

area municipalities to determine their level of support as soon possible. “We need an answer by Thursday so our council can consider a bid Friday,” said Sawatzky. A bid package for 2013-2017 must be submitted to Ironman’s parent company by Sept. 24.

OPINION Ironman bid requires region-wide effort A challenge has been put before North Okanagan politicians but it’s not their’s alone to make. The City of Vernon is currently considering whether it should bid to host Ironman Canada from 2013 to 2017. But because of the scope of the event — cycling, running and swimming, there would be a need for the communities of Coldstream, Spallumcheen, Armstrong, Enderby and the electoral areas to come board, as well as possibly Lake Country and Salmon Arm. Because Vernon’s bid would have to be submitted by Sept. 24, city officials have been working around the clock to determine the potential benefits and implications of such an event. Discussions have been held with the outlying communities and many of them will be further discussing it at their council meetings Monday. A quick decision on participation has to be made by them so Vernon council can make a final decision on a bid Friday. Now this is where all of the residents of the North Okanagan come into play. As part of their process, all of the municipal councils need to hear from their constituents and businesses on whether Ironman should be brought to the region. If it does come, there could be significant economic spinoffs as thousands of athletes stay here, while there would also be international exposure. On the other side, each participating municipality would be responsible for significant costs for traffic control, security, shuttle buses, garbage control, etc. With the clock ticking, your elected officials need to hear from you.

Hanging up the salmon rod, for now How many times have I stood on the banks of a stream, casting a line to salmon that may or may not even be there … wiping my runny nose and wondered what the heck I was doing standing there trying – hoping – to catch but a glimpse, a momentary glint of silver moving through the runs and riffles of a holding pool? How many times have I tried to convince myself that this is what salmon fishing is all about? All I know for sure is that when I’m standing kneedeep in the fast-flowing waters of a river or stream somewhere, casting my twohanded spey rod to a salmon, I’ve always felt happy and content. Whenever I did get a fish on, the whole world stopped for a few brief moments while I was fighting the fish. I have spent many an hour casting to little more than shadows, to little more than a glimmer of hope, and, upon occasion, have set my hook into the power and fury of what felt like a runaway locomotive. I have lost as many, if not more, battles

THE GREAT OUTDOORS James Murray than I have won and I have enjoyed each and every moment spent fishing for the ever more elusive trout and salmon of our rivers and streams. The salmon runs seem to be happening and the fall salmon fishing season is now well underway. However, the very fact that sometimes half a dozen or more anglers, in relatively close proximity to each other along a river bank, can cast for hours without so much as a single strike among them, would seem to indicate, at least to me, that the fish are no longer there in the numbers they used to be. The politicians, the Department of Fisheries and Oceans, the commercial fishery, the First Nations fishery

and the sport fishery can put whatever spin on things they want, but it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that the continuously declining runs of the past 10 or so years are a definite indication the salmon runs are in serious trouble – very serious trouble – everything from climate change and global warming to pollution, over-fishing and poaching is affecting salmon stocks and neither the politicians, the DFO, the commercial fishery, First Nations or the sport fishery have the will or inclination to do anything other than continue to put more and more pressure on declining fish stocks. What does it take to make people understand? It should be obvious to everyone involved in the commercial, First Nations and sport fisheries that they must take it upon themselves to curtail their fishing – before it’s too late. Things have to change. But I’m not so sure that we can rely on the federal government to make any changes for the better. They slipped a lot through

the Bill C-38 Omnibus Bill and now they are trying to put through more legislation in the House. If nothing else, I know that something inside of me has changed. I can no longer, in good conscience, cast my line for fall-run salmon that are already under too much pressure. Not until I know for sure, at some point in the hopefully near future, that the salmon are returning in numbers large enough to absolutely guarantee that there will always be salmon returning to the spawning grounds of the rivers and streams of our province. It has been three years now since I asked myself what the heck I was doing trying to catch salmon that already had the cards stacked against their even making it to their spawning grounds — never mind making it there in numbers significant enough to ensure their survival as a species. No, I won’t be going back any time soon, not until the salmon have come back.

Tips for healthy eating on a tight budget LIVING WELL Healthy eating does not need to be a budgetbreaking task requiring frequent visits to specialty grocery stores. Say goodbye to expensive trendy products and say hello to these easyto-follow steps that will keep both your health and your budget in check. Preparing meals on a budget and shopping successfully requires planning ahead. Making a grocery list will keep you focused on what you need and minimize unnecessary purchases. Grocery stores are set up to trigger you to impulse buy, so it is valuable to identify what you need before you enter the store. A deal isn’t a deal if you don’t need what you buy! Monitor the different stores in your area and select the place that has the best prices for most of the items on your list. Delay purchasing the remaining, non-essential items on your list until you are at a store with more reasonable prices. It is worthwhile to check

online or in the newspaper for specials and coupons because many items have a regular cycle of going on sale. The kitchen is another place where planning will help you stay within your budget. Prepare a large meal and use reusable containers to ensure leftovers can become lunches and snacks on the days to follow. Saving leftovers doesn’t mean you need to eat the same meal twice – dinner from the previous night can be an excellent filling in a wrap or topping on a salad. These strategies minimize waste and eliminate the need to eat out and spend extra. Buying fruits and vegetables when in season is a great way to boost your nutrient intake and slash your grocery bill. For example, a bunch of carrots from your local farmer may be cheaper than a bag of baby carrots that have been pre-chopped, packaged and imported from another country. If your favourite foods only

grow during certain seasons, try buying in bulk, and freezing them so you have them on hand year round. Adding seasonal vegetables that you may be unfamiliar with to a recipe may increase the flavour and decrease the price. For example, try using julienne turnip or rutabaga strips in coleslaw. Sources of protein are often the most expensive component when it comes to meal planning. Seeking out affordable alternatives such as beans and canned fish can satisfy both your ap-

petite and wallet. Along with other important nutrients, beans are packed with the same hungerfighting, muscle-building protein as your favourite meats. Canned tuna, salmon and sardines are also excellent alternatives These varieties last longer on your shelf than fresh fish, and come with a lower price tag. -Rose Soneff, Interior Health Community Nutritionist, with Amelia Lyne and Hannah Robinson, UBC Dietetics students.

SOUTH SHUSWAP Candidates reveal platforms Chris George

Dan Adrian

Dan Adrian Many issues face us these days- pollution, medical services, assisted living for seniors, jobs – and our new director needs to tackle those issues head-on. Considering the diversity of our area (we have seven distinct communities), we need a director that is not too closely aligned with any single community association so they can best serve all of Area C. God entrusted us this network of rivers, streams, and lakes, the health and well-being of the affluent and the poor, and we need nurture them. It is time to do what’s best for all our neighbours in Area C and beyond.

Cal Cosh The South Shuswap is a great place to live and to ensure it stays that way, there are a number of active issues that need sustained at-

tention. The OCP update needs to be completed and a new official community plan put in place. The continued work of SLIPP, water quality issues and smart lake use need support. Water and sewer system enhancements are important for the future. Area C has a strong history of involved residents and this culture needs to be supported and communications with residents in the area improved. I offer experienced leadership and will provide well-researched and well-prepared stewardship.

Paul Demenok My platform was developed after consultations with CSRD staff, directors and numerous community groups, and it focuses on three essentials: • Protect Shuswap Lake

Chris George

• Enhance services and infrastructure in Area C • Improve responsiveness of regional government. As Area C director, my goal will be to improve quality of life for all using a responsive, thorough and energetic leadership approach.

Collaborations, consultations, communications and relationshipbuilding will be important tools. I will seek to understand all points of view in making decisions, and will keep the voters in Area C informed and involved. On Sept. 29, elect Paul Demenok.

A healthy community needs to balance all aspects – social, environmental and economic. Our primary challenge in Area C is the imbalance in our demographics. We don’t have appropriate infrastructure for our seniors, our schools suffer falling enrolment, and people moving away puts

Thank you for all of the support you have shown for our family. It is truly incredible how much support we have received from everyone – close and afar. We are thankful to live in such an amazing community. Sorrento, Salmon Arm, and the surrounding Shuswap communities have been incredible. Words can’t begin to express our appreciation for all of the love you have shown for my beautiful family. Your support has made such an impact on me, Cody, the Burt’s and the Janzen’s. Doug, Alli and Cassidy would be honoured and proud to have such an outpouring of love and support. Thank you. ~ Pat and Cody Janzen & Family

Andrew (4 years old) had been on medication for his constipation for at least 6 months, his nose was always runny and he was on medication for Asthma (inhalers & pills). After his initial consultation and exam Andrew started his treatment and within 4-5 visits had started going to the toilet normally, his nose had stopped running and has not had any asthma treatment since. He is now medication free and is happy & contented. – J. Ross Since I began treatment at the beginning of January 2008 I have been totally clear of headaches and my ability to walk has increased manyfolds. My sincere thanks to Dr. Darren McNaughton. I am now glad that I took the decision to seek the assistance of a chiropractor and would suggest to others to have a go. This form of treatment is vastly different from any that you may have experienced in the past. It has certainly helped me and improved my state of health quite dramatically. –A.W. Bruce

Sicamous hosts mushroom festival The first annual Sicamous and Shuswap Lake Wild Mushroom and Food Festival was held in 2005. Participants enjoyed identifying and picking wild mushrooms, watching evening presentations, and attending workshops. The 2012 Festival will be offering even more. Activities will guide people to identify and actually pick wild mushrooms, and have a gourmet experience in the Shuswap. These will all be showcased during the Weekend Fungi Festival, Sept. 21 to 23, at the Red Barn in Sicamous. There will be many different forms of entertainment to keep everyone having fun – everything from presentations, workshops, vendors and exhibitors, informative slide shows and a live stage including beer gardens. Feature presentations will be by Paul Kruger, a foremost identifier of psychedelic mushrooms, and Daniel Winkler, who will talk about mushrooming in the Amazon, Tibet and the Pacific Northwest.

PUBLIC NOTICE

RECALL AND INITIATIVE ACT

This notice is published pursuant to section 4 of the Recall and Initiative Act. Approval in principle has been granted on an application for an initiative petition. The petition will be issued to proponent Dana Larsen on Monday, November 19, 2012 and signature sheets must be submitted to the Chief Electoral Officer by Monday, February 18, 2013. The Title of the Initiative is: An initiative to amend the Police Act. Summary of Initiative: The initiative draft Bill entitled, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sensible Policing Actâ&#x20AC;? proposes to amend the Police Act to no longer use provincial police resources on the enforcement of current laws in relation to simple possession and use of cannabis by adults. The draft law would prohibit the use of provincial police resources for this purpose, would require police to report in detail to the Minister of Justice any actual use of resources for this purpose and why it was necessary, and require the Minister to publish that report. The Bill also proposes that the Province would call upon the Federal Government to repeal the federal prohibition on cannabis, or give British Columbia an exemption, such that British Columbia is able to tax and regulate cannabis similar to the regulation of alcohol and tobacco. As well it proposes that British Columbia shall establish a Provincial Commission to study the means and requirements necessary for the province to establish a legal and regulated model for the production and use of cannabis by adults. Last, the Bill would make non-lawful possession and use of cannabis by minors an offence similar to possession and use of alcohol.

Initiative Advertising: Individuals or organizations who sponsor initiative advertising, other than the proponent and registered opponents, must register with the Chief Electoral Officer before they conduct or publish initiative advertising. Registration applications are available from Elections BC. Who May Sign the Petition: Registered voters as of Monday, November 19, 2012 may sign the initiative petition.

SPORTS Mick explains coaching move Troy Mick took a few minutes two Sundays ago to dissect a second straight loss at the B.C. Hockey League Showcase weekend in Chilliwack. Then he sent a text to a hockey contact. Scott Robinson was chilling at his place in Lake Country when he received the text. A few hours later and Robinson was the new head coach of the Salmon Arm SilverBacks. Mick, a minority shareholder of the team, remains general manager. “I can’t be a parttime coach in this league: it’s too good,” Mick said. “I asked my players for their full effort and they deserve all my effort. I found my mind wandering in Chilliwack thinking about other things I had to do and that isn’t fair to the players. “There have been a lot of 17-hour days and I can’t do it all. When I told the players, it was a sombre component, but the good thing was they weren’t jumping up and down when they heard I wasn’t their coach anymore.”

Mick said he needs more time to focus on the business and hockey operations while putting his recruiting and business skills to use. In Robinson, the Gorillas get a two-time BCHL Coach-of-theYear (Cowichan Valley Capitals) who was bench boss of the Dawson Creek Rage until the North American Hockey League franchise folded late last season. “I knew Scott was biding his time in Kelowna, waiting for the first axe to fall so I decided to axe myself,” laughed Mick, 43. “The biggest thing we get from Scott is his experience. He’s a demanding coach like me and that’s what kids need nowadays. He has a strong work ethic and a strong commitment to winning.” Robinson, a Salmon Arm native, was assistant coach with the ’Backs from 2001-03, and also guided the Sicamous Eagles, North Okanagan Kings (Enderby) and Revelstoke Grizzlies of the Kootenay International League.

# Residents of the VLA Flats Road area are looking forward to quieter times since the Thompson-Nicola Regional District has supported them in their attempts to stop noisy train whistles. “In my discussions with CP, they are very willing to work with the village,” he says. “Maybe twin-tracking might be able to solve this problem.” Chase has seen an increase in the train traffic coming through the village in recent months, making the sound of whistles even

more persistent. Many residents in the area have argued for the banning of night-time whistles as a compromise. This, says Anderson, is something that is federally regulated, and would be better brought to the attention of the federal government.

After years of negotiations, petitions, and at times frustrating meetings, VLA residents can finally breath a sigh of relief as the last whistle has finally blown. On Friday, Sept. 7, the Thompson-Nicola Regional District (TNRD) approved a resolution banning Canadian Pacific trains from blowing their whistles at the VLA Flatts Road crossing. The decision came after numerous complaints as well as petitions that were presented in 2005 and again in 2009. In July, the TNRD conducted an investigation to determine whether banning the whistles was an option. Since the investigation, the Ministry of Transportation has now issued orders to cease all non-emergency whistle blowing in that area. “This resolution will be a tremendous relief to those residents who live along VLA Flats Road,” said Ken Gillis, Electoral Area “L” director.

“Train whistles have been an issue for some time at this crossing and, thanks to CP, as well as the federal and provincial ministries attached to this portfolio, the area will be quiet once again.” To complete the whistle cessation, Section 23.1 of the Railway Safety Act required the TNRD board of directors to pass a resolution which included contacting other partner agencies, and to notify the general public of its intention to pass a resolution forbidding the use of train whistles in the area, except in the case of emergencies. While this result is seen as a victory for VLA residents, it is only a small step for Chase residents located less than two kilometres down the tracks. Chase Mayor Ron Anderson commented: “We are very pleased that we were able to get the cessation. That said, we would like to see the same thing happen here.” The Village of Chase has tackled the issue numerous times. However, explains Anderson, the curves in the tracks make it difficult.

Electoral boundary changes protested Chase Coun. Rick Berrigan voiced the feelings of the majority, saying Chase is part of the Shuswap and belongs in the Okanagan-Shuswap riding. “In my opinion, you do not fix what isn’t broken,” he said during the city council meeting Sept. 11, where the council voted to send a representative to the Kamloops public hearing to express their concerns. The changes to B.C.’s electoral boundaries that were proposed in early August, could have a dramatic effect on the Village of Chase which currently sits in the Okanagan-Shuswap region. If the changes do go ahead, Chase will be moved into the Central-Okanagan-Coquihalla electoral district, placing it with Summerland, Peachland, and Merritt, as well as other southern areas. Coun. Steve Scott felt some contempt about being lumped into the same category as Merritt and the other southern regions, stating that they have little in common. The village of Chase faces more similar problems with the Shuswap, and

have more common interests. With the Okanagan-Shuswap boundaries housing areas like Salmon Arm and Enderby, many of the Chase councillors believe that it is a much more obvious fit. Coun. Rod Crowe expressed his concern regarding the tourism in Chase. The village has invested a large amount of money over the years promoting Chase as part of the ‘Sunny Shuswap.’ Crowe believes they have created a brand with Chase and its relation to the Shuswap and worries that taking Chase out of the Shuswap district and pairing it with Merritt might damage the image that they have worked so hard to create. Council decided to send a representative to the public hearing in Kamloops to express their concerns about the changes, and suggest a few recommendations that might better suit the interests of the community. Editor’s note: In the Sept. 14 edition of the Shuswap Market News, a production glitch meant that just a portion of this article was published. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Chase equestrian tops at show A Chase rider topped the competition in her division at the Salmon Arm Fair horse show held Sept. 8-9. Saturday’s show featured showmanship, reining and western pattern and flat classes, including qualifying

classes for next year’s Western Heritage Show in Armstrong. Once the day’s events were concluded, Theresa Tremeer of Chase on Starbucks Drive Thru laid claim to the Western Senior High Point Champion-

ship and several great prizes. Judge Glenn Perran, a former Salmon Arm area trainer and judge who is now based in Mexico, put the accomplished riders through their paces to determine placings.

Heat hot in team’s opening weekend By Scott Koch MARKET NEWS CONTRIBUTOR

Hockey season #2 for the local Chase team in the KIJHL saw a Heat wave during the first weekend of action. The team headed to Revelstoke on Friday the 14th to face last season’s division-leading Grizzlies. Grumpy Bears did not deter the hunt for a win as the boys came out hard, fast and skilled. In front of an opening-night crowd of 343, local lad Dom Hodges potted the first goal of the season in the second period. Revy countered but rookie Nic Fidanza with his first of two re-acquired the lead. Halfway through the third, Fidanza got his second, both of which were assisted by Mac Guardiero. The Heat held on to the end for a welldeserved win against the Grizzlies. Jake Mattes earned the first star, stopping 29 of 31 shots with Fidanza being second star. Saturday night the 15th saw Chase’s ‘Hockey Hot Product’ at Art Holding Memorial Arena for its home opener against the Spokane Braves. A near-capacity crowd of more than 300 watched as both teams played hard and furious throughout the contest. Tired fans went home happy as the Braves outshot the Heat 43 to 31 but, once again, due to the stellar play of Mattes between the pipes, the locals earned a 4 – 2 victory. Again there was flash, dash and fists in this one, with new addition Catlin McLeod opening scoring and also winning the only tilt of the night. Fidanza once again popped in two in the first and third, with fellow rookie Connor Venne from Saskatoon, Sask. getting his first in the second. Mattes once again was first star with hard-working and hard-hitting Mac Guardiero earning second star. Mattes is the featured “hot player” of the week on the KIJHL website. Early season statistics have Fidanza with four goals, Venne with one goal and two assists and Mattes with a 2.00 goals-against average and a .946 save percentage. Next home game is Friday the 21st at 7 p.m. versus the Revelstoke Grizzlies, followed by a Sunday road game versus the Sicamous Eagles. Season tickets are still available by calling 778220-6955. The HEAT golf tourney is Sept. 29, registrations accepted at Sunshore Golf Course.

The semi was carrying food additive products, as well as heavy manufacturing parts such as nuts and bolts. It was a very heavy load, said Heebner, which contributed to the container’s fall.

DON STEFANYK Don Stefanyk, aged 68, passed away at his home in the early morning on Sept. 13 after a battle with leukemia. Don leaves behind his wife Beatrice, brothers Jack (Salmon Arm), Garry(Langley) and his sister June (St. Albert) and many nieces and nephews. Don was born in Swan River, Manitoba on May 21, 1944 to Bill and Nancy Stefanyk. The Stefanyk family later moved to Mannville, Alberta where Don received his education.

Free metal disposal at landfills Gather up all your old metal for free disposal. The Columbia Shuswap Regional District is holding its annual six-week organic and metal waste disposal event at all CSRD landfills and transfer stations from Monday, Oct.1 to Saturday, Nov. 10. With the free metal event, residents can drop off items such as stoves, hot water tanks, washers and dryers, metal doors and siding – all free of charge. The organic material includes basic yard waste generated from residential properties “There is a $15 charge on items requiring removal of ozonedepleting substances,” says CSRD waste reduction facilitator Carmen Fennell.

“The Regional District pays a contractor to remove freon from fridges, air conditioners, freezers and water coolers and this $15 charge pays for that cost.” The six-week freedisposal event takes

place at landfills and transfer stations throughout the regional district during regular site hours, with the exception of Sicamous, where an alternate location will be set up. “Normally these events are at the Si-

camous Landfill, but the road to the landfill is still closed so the alternate site is the District of Sicamous public works yard. The public can access the site through the gate on Hillier Road during regular

Their reasoning may have differed but their message to city council was by and large the same: shelve the special events bylaw. On Monday evening, council’s chamber was open to the public to speak to the bylaw created in response to the coming of the Sturgis North motorcycle rally. The intent of the bylaw, as laid out by city administrator Carl Bannister, is to give the city the ability to collect fees associated with special events with 5,000 or more participants, particularly in relation to costs associated with policing, fire control and municipal public works. Additional costs related to the bylaw are an $800 application fee for a special event permit, a $500 fine for not having the permit, and a requirement of $10 million in liability insurance. First to comment on the bylaw was Salmon Arm Fall Fair president Phil Wright. He suggested the bylaw would have a negative impact on the Children’s Festival, which has no funds available for these costs. Wright suggested that instead of the underlong, so for 700 pagesnumber of attendees, the bylaw focus on the more than 400 contracts type it entails and standing what work themselves, and that of festival and, for services to the unemployed how to put a bid example, the number of beer garfiguring out the privacy of B.C.’s citizens dens By Martha Wickett it willparticuhave. to about 70, so that clients together is daunting, OBSERVER STAFF may be compromised.

Raw sewage causes stink

Downtown: After numerous citizen complaints, the city discovers a sewer line pumping waste into the storm drain system.

By Martha Wickett OBSERVER STAFF

If it smells like sewage, it probably is. And it was. Maggy Davidson at Spirit Quest Bookstore and some of her neighbours on Lakeshore Drive have been living with a disgusting odour for months now. It comes and goes, wafting into their stores, making them nauseous, then disappearing. Davidson says she’s been dealing with it since October, Jacalyn Hays at Bella Interiors noticed it about a year ago. “I had got in touch with the city a couple of times a year ago about this problem. They passed it off – it’s nothing, it’s nothing, it’s your imagination type of thing. It’s been a big problem for a long time and they’ve ignored it, which

I find very annoying,” says Hays. Davidson, too, said city hall’s attitude stunk. “They’ve been awful to deal with. Inferring I didn’t know what a sewer smell smells like – and it’s true, I don’t spend time crawling around sewers; they inferred my staff didn’t know what it smelled like.” She said she’s had a plumber to her building four times, and other tradespeople. “The city said it was a gas leak... so the gas company came with their meters. The city said it’s after burners, you need to get your furnace looked at.” Finally, she says, the city agreed to flush the storm-sewer lines out front. “Then the smell was gone, miracle.” But the problem moved to Hays’ store.

“I guess when they flushed the lines, they sent it down her direction and made her life miserable,” says Davidson. Then it came back Davidson’s way. The smell was so bad, she wondered if some poor unsuspecting fish had made a wrong turn and got lodged in the storm water pipe. However, last week, action. City staff sniffed out the source of the problem. Dale McTaggart, the city’s director of engineering and public works, told the Observer Friday that by running cameras into both the sanitary and storm sewers, staff discovered that somebody got the pipes mixed up. Sewage has been running into the storm water system while storm water has been funnelled into the sewage pipes. “I don’t know what happened, but See Crews on page A2
