Premier backs Sicamous water fix UBCM: Province will provide help to develop $4.5 million treatment facility. By Lachlan Labere MARKET NEWS STAFF

Christy Clark has given her word that the province will help fix Sicamous’ water supply. The premier, in her speech last Friday to some 1,500 delegates attending this year’s Union of B.C. Municipalities convention, assured the District of Sicamous and Mayor Darrell Trouton that the province

would help set right the damage caused to the community’s water system in this year’s flooding. “Darrell Trouton, who I met with recently when I was up to visit, has been dealing with some very challenging floods in his community, and now his water supply is under threat. Darrell, I want you to know this, because Bill (Bennett, Minister of Community, Sport and Cultural

Development) has asked me to make sure we set this right. I know you need that water supply fixed, and we are going to help you do it,” said Clark. Trouton, councillors Charlotte Hutchinson, Fred Busch, Don Richardson and Joan Thomson, as well as district administrator Heidi Frank, attended UBCM with a “hit list” of concerns they’d hoped to have ad-

Fire extinguished in Sunnybrae

# Shuswap Fire Department Cpt. Mike Crocker hoses down a hot spot on the side of the hill where a downed power line started a forest fire Tuesday afternoon. A combined force of 45 firefighters from three halls, assisted by members of the Forest Service and a helicopter brought the fire under control and had it extinguished within several hours.

Water still being trucked in to town Continued from front out during the flood and we haven’t had water since,” says Trouton, referring to a new water treatment facility being sought by the district, expected to cost between $4- and $4.5-million. “The plan was to get a shelf-ready plan available and presented, so we did that this week at UBCM, and lobbied hard with different ministers, George Abbott, our MLA, and also with Bill Bennett and various staff about our situation in Sicamous. We were quite surprised she made a speech that Sicamous would be getting a water treatment facility – they’ll make it right.” Apart from what the district presented, there are no further details. But Trouton thinks Sicamous’ water needs will be met by the province sooner than later. “It’s a matter of sitting down and figuring out how much the district would have to come up with, if any, and then how fast we can get started,” says Trouton. “But I alluded to them

that it needed to start immediately because of winter coming, and we’re trucking water right now. So they’re aware of all that. They’re also aware of our district finances.” Regarding funding, it is the mayor’s hope that the province, and possibly the federal government, will foot the entire bill for a new treatment

ment. “We’re lobbying hard for that, that this was the cause of it. But keep in mind that it’s not a typical mandate of B.C. disaster assistance to do such large projects like the water treatment centre. So we’re expecting we’ll have to kick in some, possibly, but that’s all in the details.” Trouton believes

facility, for he maintains Sicamous’ current water woes are a direct result of the natural disaster at Two Mile. “Let’s face it, our water system was wiped out by the flood… That’s when our contamination began at our intake,” says Trouton. “So this should all, ultimately, be under disaster financial assistance, which is 100 per cent paid for by the province and the federal govern-

Clark to be sincere in her commitment to Sicamous, and that by having a plan in place for a new water treatment facility, the province will come through with funding. “I think it all comes down to having a plan and moving forward, and if you do that in a responsible manner and show that this can work, then they’re apt to go along with you,” he says.

Proposed boundary changes raise ire in Falkland, Sorrento By Richard Rolke BLACK PRESS

The fight over Falkland’s political future is heating up. Rene Talbot, Falkland’s electoral area director, will speak to the Federal Electoral Boundaries Commission Wednesday about the possible removal of the community from the Okanagan-Shuswap riding. “People are very upset. They want to stay in the riding we’re in,” he said. The commission is proposing Falkland be put into a new riding with downtown Kelowna, Summerland, Merritt, Logan Lake and Princeton. “We have no ties to Kelowna, Merritt or Summerland. It makes absolutely no sense,” said Talbot. Falkland is linked to Salmon Arm through the Columbia-Shuswap Regional District and its secondary students go to school in Armstrong. Talbot also points out that most people in the community also work and shop in Vernon. There is a concern that residents would not have easy access to their federal representative if the riding changes. “They want people to drive to Kelowna to meet their MP,” said Talbot.

Other proposed changes to OkanaganShuswap would include moving the area between Blind Bay and Chase into Central Okanagan-Coquihalla, and Chase into Kamloops-Thompson-Cariboo. Sorrento would be divided by two federal boundaries. Talbot doesn’t hold much hope that the commission can be convinced to leave the riding as is.

changes proposed. “I feel strongly about it. Lines can be drawn a little differently.” He describes dividing representation for Sorrento as “not a good idea.” Canada’s electoral districts are reviewed every 10 years by independent commissions to account for shifts and growth in the population. “It’s a challenge when you come to the

“It’s Ottawa and they don’t listen much. Our MP doesn’t even really want to get involved,” said Talbot. Colin Mayes, Okanagan-Shuswap MP, has not written the boundaries commission and he will not appear at the hearing in Kelowna Wednesday. “It’s a public process, not a political process,” he said. Instead, a presentation will be made by the Conservatives’ Okanagan-Shuswap Riding Association. Mayes admits, though, that he has concerns about the

Friday, October 5, 2012 Shuswap Market News

OPINION Time for action on farming overdue Let’s hope the provincial government has finally got the message. North Okanagan politicians lobbied the ministries of health and agriculture Thursday to pull back on the heavy-handed meat processing regulations that have crippled local farmers financially. In fact, it’s believed the number of meat producers has plummeted from 1,200 to 300 since the regulations were launched in 2007. Local poultry farmers have lost $1.4 million. “The policy has devastated the single-family farm in our region,” said Patrick Nicol, Regional District of North Okanagan chairperson. Beyond this, the rules have meant North Okanagan residents have not been able to access food closer to home, even though Victoria continues to sing the praises of food sustainability. Norm Letnick, B.C.’s new agriculture minister, says he’s aware of the concerns and is pushing his staff for options. That’s great, but one has to wonder what has taken so long? RDNO has been demanding rule changes for years but that’s fallen on deaf ears. The government suggested that slaughtering licences may be permitted at one point but then absolutely nothing occurred. Letnick says finding a solution is complex, but what’s more complex is a farmer trying to balance his books when his market base is eroding. If the provincial government is truly interested in the economy and healthy eating habits, as well as the wellbeing of communities, then it needs to immediately reverse direction. Letnick won’t promise when changes may occur, and that unfortunately, means other farmers are likely to quit before something is done. -Vernon Morning Star

Few remedies for muddy-tasting trout Have you ever spent a pleasant autumn day out on the water fishing, enjoying the colours that come with the changing of the seasons, watched as a flock of geese honked their way across the sky, basked in the warmth of the sun, caught and released a few really nice fish and then looked forward to frying one up for dinner? I’m not big on eating trout. I prefer halibut or walleye (or salmon, even though I don’t fish for them very often because of their declining numbers), but I have been known to cook up a few trout for dinner, especially when I’m up at the cabin. I usually start with brown rice mixed with a little wild rice to give it that slightly nutty flavour, a bit of sliced oyster mushrooms fried up in butter with a dash of ginger and some chopped up kale that has been reduced in a wok with lemon oil. Place the trout (that has been poached first and then seared in a frying pan to give it a slight crust) on a bed of the rice, add

THE GREAT OUTDOORS James Murray to the plate some spring greens with a cranberry jalapeno dressing and you’ve got a simple to prepare, wonderful tasting meal – unless the trout happens to have that distasteful muddy flavour you sometimes get with them. The muddy taste in trout is caused by a chemical compound called geosmin. The two primary producers of geosmin in freshwater lakes are the blue-green algae you see on the surface of some lakes, and actinomyus bacteria which causes decomposition of organic material on the lake bottom. Algae and actinomyus bacteria release geosmin into the water (it is actually released when the living al-

gae and bacteria die) which trout breathe in through their gills and then transfer, through the bloodstream, into their skin, flesh and muscle tissue. Although fish can still taste muddy in the fall, it is more of a problem during the hot summer months when algae is in full bloom. The problem diminishes as water temperatures cool down and is less likely to occur in lakes which are relatively deep and low in organic matter. Geosmin is only eliminated over time, once the algae bloom clears and/or decomposition slows. The rate of elimination is dependant on water temperature and the fat content of the fish, which is species and age/size specific. Ironically, both algae and decomposition increases in warmer water, while it takes longer for a fish to eliminate geosmin compounds from their system in cooler water (due to metabolism rates). It can be hard to predict which lakes will have muddy tasting fish. Two lakes

of similar depth, with the same type of algae bloom, may not produce similar tasting fish. Sometimes it’s just a matter of what microhabitat a fish frequents when eating. If you do keep a fish that you suspect is going to taste muddy, you can usually distinguish a slight muddy smell to it when you’re cleaning it. You can try soaking your fish in vinegar to help remove the muddy taste – geosmin breaks down in acid. But I’ve never really found vinegar all that successful. There are all sorts of socalled remedies for muddy tasting fish but, like I say, I’ve never found one that works. Once I know the muddy taste is there I can always taste it – regardless of how it is prepared, how much spice might be used or what kind of sauce it covered with. The best way to get rid of the muddy taste in trout is to practice catch and release. Simply return the fish back into the water and figure out something else to have for dinner.

Marla Beblow w



A divided Sorrento simply makes no sense I am writing with concerns about the proposed new North Okanagan-Shuswap Riding and the revised Central OkanaganCoquihalla riding. It appears that this new boundary will split the community of Sorrento in half along the Trans-Canada Highway. There appears to be some sort of assumption that those of us on the south side of the highway are oriented to Kamloops and Summerland, while those on the north are oriented to Salmon Arm. This is ludicrous. We have much more in common economically and politically with the North Okanagan than we do with Summerland, which is a four-

hour drive away. It is utterly unreasonable to redraw the boundaries in this fashion. The commission’s introductory paper indicates that the commission has taken “more vital considerations, such as historical patterns and community of interest or identity” into consideration, as well as “transportation corridors..., road access and natural landscape features..., boundaries of municipalities, regional districts or urban localities...” It is a pity that none of these considerations “of paramount importance” have been used to determine the boundaries of these two ridings. Community interest is

clearly not markedly different between the north side of the TCH and the south in Sorrento. Road access to Salmon Arm is not different either. The regional district is also radically different than the new electoral boundaries. To place communities within the North Okanagan/Shuswap into the same electoral district as the bulk of the South Okanagan is to deny voters throughout the region any semblance of fair representation. Please reconsider these boundaries, and develop a more reasonable plan for the region. Rebecca Kneen

Motion addresses obesity epidemic among youth

FROM THE HILL Colin Mayes Health professionals are greatly concerned about the epidemic of childhood obesity in today’s society and so am I. That’s why I seconded MP Royal Galipeau’s Motion C-319 on children’s health, calling on the federal government to encourage individu-

als and organizations to commit to participating in the promotion of healthy weights, informing Canadians of the health consequences of childhood obesity, as well as providing information on healthy diet choices. I am pleased to report that this motion passed unanimously in Parliament on Sept. 19. I recently met with a representative in our riding from the Heart and Stroke Foundation. During our meeting, I was informed that the Heart and Stroke Foundation campaign this year is on promoting awareness,

SilverBacks Hockey

and educating Canadians to make healthy food choices for their children. According to the Heart and Stroke Foundation, 33 per cent of children do not drink enough milk, 70 per cent don’t eat enough fruits and vegetables and 93 per cent are inactive. According to this, it’s no wonder childhood obesity has tripled in the past 30 years. To help Canadians make healthy food choices, the Heart and Stroke Foundation is proposing the Health Check program. This program will set a guideline for identifying

nutritious foods and providing that information on food packaging. Labelling needs to be reliable and monitored to ensure claims made on products are factual. Making this information available to consumers will encourage purchasing products that support the healthy diet their children need. Obesity trends must be addressed. The former chair of the standing committee on health, the Hon. Rob Merrifield stated, “Today’s children will become the first generation for some time to have poorer health outcomes and a

shorter life expectancy than their parents.” We must get serious about this issue – not just to save future healthcare costs, but to save our children.

SOUTH SHUSWAP Demenok voted in by Area C

(Shuswap Women’s Recreational Soccer Assoc.)


The voters of the South Shuswap resoundingly selected Paul Demenok to represent them on the Columbia Shuswap Regional District board. Demenok had a total of 667 votes in Saturday’s byelection, which had been called to fill the vacancy left by the death of former Area C director Ted Bacigalupo. His closest rival, Dan Adrian,

had 237 votes. Following the result, Demenok credited his team of volunteers with his significant margin of victory. “I had really done my homework on issues and had a platform that, I think appealed to voters. But it was the support of my volunteers, who went out there and helped spread that message through the community and got people to the polls — that really made the difference.” His first task will be

Paul Demenok meeting with CSRD staff and learning the policies and procedures of the job before he formulates his own priority list. One of the most con-

tentious items coming up is the third reading of the Official Community Plan for Area C. Demenok would not cite a position on the document, which has been in to the works for many years, saying he needs to do more research both with CSRD staff and the OCP advisory committee before determining how he will vote on the motion. The election results are still preliminary there is an opportunity to call for a recount

for up to nine days after the vote, however, given the margin of victory, it is unlikely the outcome would change. Demenok will be sworn in before the next CSRD board meeting on Oct. 18. Election totals are as follows: • Paul Demenok 667; • Dan Adrian 237; • Opal Hendrickson 88; • Cal Cosh 35; • Chris George 22.

Liberal leadership candidate to appear By Richard Rolke BLACK PRESS


Soulful singer

One of the contenders for the federal Liberal leadership may be stopping in Okanagan-Shuswap. Deborah Coyne, a constitutional lawyer and author, will appear at the Okanagan-Shuswap Liberal Riding Association’s annual general meeting Oct. 12. Also seeking the Liberal leadership is Montreal MP Justin Trudeau. “Both are very credible people,” said Janna Francis, Okanagan-Shuswap Liberal president. Francis expects much of the media attention will be focused on Trudeau, the son of former prime minister Pierre Trudeau. “He will bring some attention to Canadian politics and wake some people up,” she said. “There is some apathy out there about politics.” A new federal leader will be elected in April, and the party continues to rebuild after last year’s election loss, which saw the Liberals place third nationally. “Right after the election, meetings began on how we clearly define what the Liberals stand for,” said Francis. “There has been a groundswell of support.” The Oct. 12 annual general meeting will be at the Royal York Golf Course in Armstrong, with a wine and cheese social at 6 p.m.

BC Conservatives prepare to select Shuswap candidate By Richard Rolke BLACK PRESS

B.C. Conservatives are preparing to head to the polls. The Shuswap constituency association will select a candidate for next year’s provincial election Oct. 20 at 1 p.m. at the Elks Hall in Salmon Arm. “We expect about 200 people there,” said Beryl Ludwig, constituency president. “Party leader John Cummins will also be there.” Seeking the nomination are Maureen Walker from Enderby, Ed Klopp from Sorrento and Salmon Arm’s Tom Birch. The election isn’t until May, but Ludwig says selecting a candidate now will give them a chance to create awareness about themselves and the party’s platform. Ludwig believes there is a strong opportunity for the Conservatives to take the Shuswap because longtime

Liberal MLA George Abbott is not seeking another term. “We’ve sold 60 memberships in less than a month,” she said. “People are really

coming on board with the party.” The Liberals have not selected a candidate yet and the NDP candidate is Steve Gunner from Spallumcheen.


Frederick Gustav 1941 - 2012 It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our father, grandfather and beloved husband, Frederick Gustav Hopp on September 25, 2012 after a courageous battle with cancer. Fred was born in Bashaw, Alberta, but spent most of his life in B.C. He attended school in Kamloops and worked as a flooring contractor in Kamloops and Salmon Arm. Fred was an ardent hunter, fisherman and fly-tier, who loved the outdoors and was never happier than when he caught a large trout on one of his own flies. He retired to the Cariboo to fish the many lakes and explore the countryside on his quad Scsc – “South Cariboo smartcar.” Fred is survived by his loving wife Diane, his daughters Karen (Yan) Babin and Tammi (Mitch) Vik; his son Chris (Tara) Hopp; and his grandchildren Christopher, Connor, Steven, Brandon, Trevor and Sadie. The Hopp family would like to thank Dr. Geerts, the nurses at 100 Mile District Hospital, the Home Care nurses, the 100 Mile Hospice Society and especially Gayle who made it possible for Fred to come home to Bridge Lake for his last days. Cremation arrangements were made and at Fred’s request there will be no formal service. Our love for Fred and memories of him will forever remain in our hearts. 100 Mile Funeral Service Ltd. entrusted with the arrangements. 1-877-595-3243 Condolences can be sent to the family at

# Nathan Lobb and his Perfection Concrete Services crew pour the foundation for Malakwa’s new cell phone tower, expected to be in service in December or January. “But then it bogs down our systems and our debit machines are on it, so our debit machines are constantly being kicked in and out,” says Koebelt. However, for Koebel, the bigger issue is public safety. “Because RCMP come from Sicamous, you have to get back to a land line to be able to call for help, and then there’s already going to be that delay in getting help out to Malakwa…,” says Koebel, adding when there was an accident on the Malakwa bridge last year, the witness had to drive back to the Burner to call for help. “Now, if the Burner had been closed, they’ve got to drive all the way back to, I think it’s Cambie Solsqua, before they can get service again. That’s a huge issue, especially when you’ve got fatalities or people needing immediate assistance.” Albatross Plumbing

owner Marco Warger is of the same mind. While he stands to benefit business-wise from cellular service, which would allow him to respond more quickly to emergencies, Warger says the safety benefits are huge. “The amount of traffic going up and down that road every day, and with the accidents and breakdowns, and the people you see with flat tires or overheating, they’re totally at the mercy of trying to find somebody who can drive into cell range or knock on somebody’s door,” says Warger. “With today’s technology, that’s just terrible.” Hall confirmed that Telus has been looking at providing cellular service to the area for some time, adding these are not “short-term projects where it’s just a matter of flipping a switch.” “We have to go and acquire a site, whether that’s on Crown land or



bigger than what they usually pour because of the volume of snow they get out there. The pad was 10 metres by 10 metres by four-feet thick.” But Lobb says the tower will be a substantial benefit for Malakwa residents and businesses alike, who will no longer have to rely on (or pay for) a land line. He also expects cellular service to be a huge plus when it comes to safety for snowmobilers who utilize the popular Eagle Pass, and other local sledding areas. Columbia Shuswap Regional District Area E Rural SicamousMalakwa Director Rhona Martin says she and the regional district board have been encouraging Telus for quite some time to bring cellular service to the area. She says it will be a significant benefit to contractors like Lobb, and for overall safety in the area. Burner Restaurant & Lounge owner Tamryn Koebel says people have been talking for so long about extending cellular service to Malakwa, she’ll believe it’s happened when her phone says there’s service. That said, Koebel explains her business currently relies on highspeed Internet, which works intermittently at best, and takes an additional hit when customers want Internet access.

Residents and travellers along the TransCanada Highway, from Malakwa to the Three Valley Gap, can expect to have cellular service in the next three months. Telus spokesperson Shawn Hall says construction is currently underway on two cell tower sites, one in Malakwa and one in Three Valley Gap, that he expects will “go live” in a few months time. “It’s a fairly extensive construction project because of the rural areas that they’re in,” says Hall. “We have to put in power, we have to put a link into our network and the like… And they will provide coverage along that stretch of Highway 1 there that currently doesn’t have any wireless service. Once complete, I don’t have the final figures right now, but the two sites will represent an investment significantly north of $1 million by Telus.” Nathan Lobb, owner of Perfection Concrete Services in Malakwa, is already benefitting from the local tower, as his company was subcontracted to pour the concrete base. “They said it’s a 60-metre tower,” says Lobb. “That pad alone, I bet cost $50 to $80,000, just the concrete work.

clothes and different positions. Baby will cover much of your skin. • Choose clothing you feel comfortable in. Loose t-shirts can be lifted and baby can be snuggled into the side. Button-down shirts can be unbuttoned from the bottom. Wearing a cardigan or jacket over a tank top or t-shirt covers more skin. Belly bands can be used to cover the tummy. • Try feeding in a sling or wrap. With practice most moms and babes can do this. • Choose a bra that is easy to use. Practice snapping or unclipping the bra with one hand. • Pick a spot that is comfortable and less visible to the public.

•Plan a response if someone asks you to nurse in a different place. If there has been a complaint, suggest that the person finds a place to sit where they can’t see you nursing. • Smile. Breastfeeding is important for you and your child. Smiling at people who are looking at you often will make things more comfortable for both of you. Lactation consultants and public health nurses are available at Public Health Centres to assist mothers and infants during the breastfeeding years. - Diane Cameron is a Public Health Nurse with Interior Health.




The World Health Organization recommends early initiation and exclusive breastfeeding until six months of age and continued breastfeeding, with the introduction of solid food, for two years or beyond. Breastfeeding has many well-documented benefits for both mothers and babies including: bonding and attachment; protecting mom against breast cancer, ovarian cancer and osteoporosis; and protecting babe against ear infections, respiratory infection and diarrhea. Breastfeeding also promotes babies’ tooth, jaw and brain development and provides optimal

nutrition while saving money. Breastfeeding shouldn’t prevent moms and babies from getting out and enjoying all the activities everyone else is doing. New babies breastfeed a lot so its important to be able to breastfeed comfortably even when away from home. If you are comfortable feeding your little one anywhere that is great. If you are feeling a little shy here are some tips to help. The following tips will help make breastfeeding away from home more comfortable: • Breastfeeding in public is legal and protected by the Human Rights Commission. • Practice at home in front of a mirror.

Fire training set for Silver Creek enough smoke to cause adverse health effects; however residents should be aware that the smoke is from a small controlled burn and not a wildfire,” says Salmon Arm Zone fire protection officer Kirk Hughes. “These small low intensity ground fires will be contained within a pre-established area of mineral soil guard to stop the fire spreading and will be continuously monitored and will be completely extinguished before our staff leave the area.” The B.C. Wildfire Management Branch is recognized as a world leader in wildfire management and has provided training to many other countries.


If you see smoke in the hills east Silver Creek between now and Oct. 15, don’t panic. The B.C. Wildfire Management Branch of the Ministry of Forests, Land and Natural Resources will burn small plots of land to be used for a fire investigation course planned for 25 Korean Forest Service staff members. Students will examine the burned plots, looking for the source of the burns. The timing of the burning will depend on weather conditions. “There isn’t likely to be

Dressage is the guiding of a horse through a series of complex maneuvers by slight movements of the rider’s hands, legs and weight. On Saturday, local winners were as follows in the gold competition: • Jesse Langford on Maraschino took two firsts – one in the First Level Test 1 and one in the First Level ‘Test of Choice.’ • Sonya Campbell on Zamiro took first place in the one test she entered – the highest test in Fourth Level, Test 3. • Philip Wright on Frostfire took first in the two tests he entered – PE (Para Equestrian) Grade 4 Team and PE Gr. 4 Individual.

CHASE House arrest for man in standoff By Martha Wickett

Editorial Submissions: Email: Fax: 250-832-5140


This is a man who doesn’t need jail. He needs help. Lawyers for the defence and the Crown, as well as the judge, agreed on the same course of action for John Edmond Leblanc, the man who barricaded himself inside a Chase bank in April. Leblanc, 58, who spent about five months in prison following his arrest April 26, was sentenced on Thursday in provincial court in Kamloops to a 12-month conditional sentence, followed by two years’ probation. He pleaded guilty to charges of uttering threats, possessing a weapon for a dangerous purpose, and theft under $5,000. “His background supported what appeared to be the reasons why he did what he did,” Crown counsel Stephen Lawhead told the Observer. “It was a cry for help, the actions of someone who was desperate and trying to get some assistance.” Leblanc will be living in Kamloops under house arrest in a supervised residence and will be receiving psychiatric help. Police responded to an alarm at the bank about 4:30 p.m. on April 26. Officers learned that a man had walked into the bank, lit a cigarette and, before sitting in the manager’s chair, announced he had a bomb. He then ordered everyone to leave the bank. He was also seen holding a knife and a handgun. Streets in Chase surrounding the bank were cordoned off until about 11 p.m. before the man was convinced to come out. Although initially cooperative as he walked out, he then told police to shoot him. Officers eventually complied in order to restrain

Police confiscate two rifles Chase RCMP were busy this past week dealing with robberies, search warrants and thefts. Last Friday, Sept. 30, RCMP executed a search warrant for weapons at a residence on Brooke Drive. The search resulted in the confiscation of two rifles, one of which was reported to be loaded at the time. A man in his 60s was arrested for unsafe storage of a firearm, and

are requesting assistance from the public in identifying this male. Anyone with information is asked to call the Chase detachment at 250-6793221 or Crimestoppers at 1 800 222 8477.

RCMP REPORT charges will be recommended to Crown counsel. The investigation is continuing.

Taxi robbery Theft suspect bar was stolen. Video surveillance footage of the site shows a young male suspect wearing a distinctively patterned jacket. Chase RCMP

On Sept. 26, about 11 p.m., a Kamloops Yellow Cab taxi driver drove a male and a heavy-set female, both about 25 years old, from the Valleyview Domino’s Pizza to the

Chief William Pierish and Old Highway intersection near Chase. The male passenger reportedly then punched the driver in the head numerous times, causing visible injuries. The suspects robbed the driver of about $170 as well as an airport tag before fleeing on foot. Anyone with information is asked to call the Chase detachment at 250-679-3221 or Crimestoppers at 1800-222-8477.

Continued from A17 addictions, both drugs and alcohol, so was put on methadone a few months prior to the bank standoff. The court heard that Leblanc felt he was get-

ting disapproving looks at the pharmacy in Sorrento, so he began driving to Chase to get his methadone. It was after a visit to the Chase pharmacy on April 26 that he went to a restaurant where he drank several beer and ate appetizers, but left without paying.

He then tried to buy cigarettes at a convenience store, but his debit card was declined. That led him to the bank, where he threatened to blow it up. During the hours he was in the bank, he attempted suicide by slitting his wrists.

The bomb turned out to be a fake – a device with wires and a battery, and the gun was a pellet gun that closely resembled a semi-automatic handgun. A bank employee told Crown counsel she didn’t feel threatened by Leblanc and felt he

Early stop in Chase on cross-Canada tour They’ve toured around all summer long, hitting Kelowna, Salmon Arm, Vernon and Kamloops, but they are not finished yet. Cod Gone Wild will be at the Chase Community Hall Nov. 10, for a fun filled show promoting their latest album release, The Traveler. Their second independent studio album continues on with their unique modern-celtic themed sound. The title track depicts a story reminiscent of Andrew Mercer’s real life after he left his Newfoundland home three years ago. The song, co-written by Mercer and band member Chad Carter, tells a tale of a Newfoundlander that leaves home with his guitar in hand, to head west in search of prosperity, but fails to find it in the oil sands of Alberta. Mercer’s background is where much of the albums

sound is derived from. “Where someone comes from is very important,” says Mercer, “especially if it is a place like Newfoundland, where tradition, culture, and heritage are so deeply rooted.” Mercer explains that even after he left home, he wanted to make sure he stayed true to his homegrown culture. “After relocating to British Columbia, it was essential for me that the influence from home remained strong through the songs. It was equally important that the individual musicians in the band be creative with their instruments, reflecting their experiences and where they came from.” The result was an album rich in musical talent, and jammed with musical favorites from across the country. “We have blended together our talents, diverse musical backgrounds and

#Cod Gone Wild will be coming to the Chase Community Hall on Nov. 10. influence to create what we call our own brand of ‘Modern Celtic’ music,” says Mercer. “The Traveler, for us, represents the journey

that we are all on together; spreading the Celtic spirit from Newfoundland to British Columbia and beyond. Our musical journey has

just begun.” The album showcases a number of classic favourites from the East Coast such as “I’se Da B’ye,” “Drunken

Sailor,” and maritime classic, “Farewell to Nova Scotia.” The album does not stick only to creative remakes, but also ventures into a number of original songs as well including, “The Traveler,” “Days Gone By,” “Five Thousand Miles,” and a live version of “Sociable.” The band also included a few songs that were written by fellow artists including “the Galway Girl” by Steve Earle and “Saltwater Joys,” by Wayne Chaulk, a Newfoundland songwriter and member of east coast group Buddy Wasisname and the Other Fellers. The band will be rolling into the village to share their musical talents in a live show Nov. 10 at 7:30 p.m. before moving on to tackle the rest of Canada. Tickets are on sale for $20 and can be purchased at G-Force Board Shop, 927 Shuswap Ave.

Heat wins one, loses one over the weekend Hockey: Team’s penalty kill proves effective but unable to score goals on the power play. By Scott Koch MARKET CONTRIBUTOR

The local Chase Heat Junior Hockey Team earned a split over the past weekend in a pair of games sandwiched between the annual club golf tournament. Friday night, Sept. 28, saw the visiting Heat take the match from their arch rival the Kamloops Storm by a 4-3 score. In a contest where Jake Mattes between the pipes kept things close, the Heat were outshot 51 – 32 but prevailed on the scoresheet.

First and second stars were Mattes and newcomer Shelby Kostyshen. Kostyshen got the local side on the board in the first period at 6:57 assisted by Ryan Beach and brand new Ravi Chand. Mattes faced 21 shots in the first frame and stopped them all. Kamloops stormed back in the second with a pair to take the lead. In the third the Heat had three unanswered goals prior to one getting past Mattes with one second left.

Shayne Woodland, Connor Venne and Chand scored with Kostyshen and Chand picking up two assists a piece. A good onethird of the crowd in attendance were Heat supporters so the game was loud. Saturday saw the players, fans, parents and billet parents coming together at Sunshore Golf Course for a friendly afternoon of comraderie followed by prizes and a barbeque. Fifty-two golfers, 23 players and 102 steaks later, a beautiful day came to

an end. The hockey club thanks all the volunteers, prize donors and participants for “feeling the heat!” Special recognition goes to Peter van Hoof and Norman and Jean Stelter. Sunday saw an afternoon home game with the visiting desert dogs from Osoyoos. The Coyotes were just off an overtime win over the Storm the previous evening. This contest was all Coyotes on the scoresheet as they left town with a 5 –

0 shutout victory. Osoyoos was fast and skilled and displayed a very effective transition game as they relentlessly forced the puck into the Heat end. No power play goals were allowed as the local side continues to deploy an effective penalty kill on the five chances the Coyotes had. However, Chase was ineffective on eight powerplay opportunities. Devon Pearson came on in relief of Jake Mattes with 16:32 left in the third.

Aiden Silzer-Hooker was named the third star. Chase Heat nominee for the month of September in the KIJHL is stellar goalie Jacob “Jake” Mattes. The team hits the road next weekend to play three games versus the Beaver Valley Nighthawks, the Castlegar Rebels and the Nelson Leafs before heading home to meet the Revelstoke Grizzlies on Friday Oct. 12 at 7 p.m. The team sits at three wins and three losses early in the season.

Curling Club offers special four-week trial period for prospective curlers The Chase Curling Club is back in full swing again, but this year officials are taking a different approach in hopes of attracting some new members – along with welcoming the old ones. The club has redesigned its Friday night open league to accommodate those truly seasoned in the sport as well as those who are just trying it out. The more experi-

enced players will be teamed up with those who are looking to learn the skills of the game. New members who would like to try the game but are unsure if they would like to commit their time and money are being offered the first four games at $40. If, after the four nights, a player decides they would like to continue playing, the $40

will go towards their yearly membership fee of $160. The club is also offering to supply the equipment during the four-week trial period. Anyone interested in taking on a new sport may call Dave Williams at 250-6793682 or email admin@ The club, whose season is set to begin Oct. 15, will be continuing last year’s leagues as

normal, with a few minor changes. New fees have been put in place for the 2012-2013 curling season. Players can join the first league at $220 with an additional $14 for Curl BC plus taxes. The second league only costs an additional $180 and a third league can be added for only $160. Anyone interested in joining a fourth

league can do so for free. The leagues that will be offered throughout the 2012 to 2013 season are as follows: • Junior Curling, every Monday at 3 p.m.; • Mixed curling will take place Mondays at 10 a.m.; •Ladies Curling will be held every Tuesday at 10 a.m.; • Senior Men’s Curling is being offered at 10 a.m. and again at

“This contribution added to his previous support, now has Ralph and Norma Owens recognized as benefactors to the foundation,” said Ayotte, who presented Owens with an engraved, silver salmon figurine that will be mounted on the hospital’s recognition wall. Elections were then held to fill four threeyear term positions. Ayotte, Joe Johnson, Jim Kimmerly and Maureen McTavish were elected by acclamation. Remaining on the board are Doug Murray, Eugene Casavant, Addie Williams, Terri Sinton, Kathryn Ven-

nard, Ted Brecknell, Jackie Morrison and Rick Hirtle, and Adela Ainsworth representing the Shuswap Lake Hospital Auxiliary. The AGM concluded with a presentation by Brad Clements, who explained the advantages and process for visioning and strategic planning. Clements is a management consultant and part-time economics professor at Okanagan College. He is contracted by the foundation board to lead the them through a visioning and strategic planning exercise over the next several months.

It was an evening of information and tributes. Shuswap Hospital Foundation president Brian Ayotte updated attendees at the Sept. 26 AGM on activities over the past year before conferring a special life membership on retiring board member Ralph Owens. Ayotte noted the installation of a new Xray machine in a newly developed trauma room adjacent to the new emergency area as one of the foundation’s highlights. “This installation facilitates examinations of patients being seen for trauma in emergency,” he said. “It also serves for general service X-rays from the imaging department.” The Foundation contributed $120,000 towards the installation of the new room that cost just in excess of $200,000. Ayotte noted that close to 45 per cent of the X-rays taken in the department in 2012 were in the trauma room. “A whole variety of equipment was furnished to the hospital, Bastion Place and to Community Care in the year,” Ayotte said. He noted that $205,855 was committed for equipment for 2012 in one allocation, that saw the funding of an upgrade for more advanced technical ultra sound heart examinations, an ECG machine, a ventilator, a CR Reader to digitalize X-ray images and a fetal monitor. The foundation also funded the purchase of equipment for the community-based speech clinic and, with the generosity of the

Salmon Arm Rotary Club, said Ayotte, a vein viewer to help with difficult intravenous injections. The foundation also approved a further $60,000 to help with the replacement of endoscopes for use in the operating rooms. Ayotte credited the foundation’s success to community generosity and noted the organization made special efforts over the last several months to prepare to assist folks in planning their generosity. Without continuing support, he warned, future needs could be in jeopardy. Ayotte explained that the foundation works with financial advisors, insurance representatives and other professionals to find every advantage they can for donors. “The foundation truly appreciates the generosity and kindnesses of the public and of all its volunteers,” he said, pointing out that includes the part played by all levels of government, including Interior Health. “The work of the foundation simply fills the gaps that otherwise might not be met.” Allen Finch of Finch and Company presented the official financial return. Highlighted in his report was the over quarter million dollars raised in the community in the last fiscal year and $400,000 in equipment purchases made in that period. In presenting Owens with a special plaque, Ayotte applauded Owens for 25 years of service on the board. Owens gave his own message, announcing a few days earlier that he was donating nearly $2,500 to the foundation – $100 for each year he served.
