White Lake logging plan changed Forestry: Residents satisfied with compromise to protect area’s viewscapes. By Barb Brouwer

market news staff

Members of the White Lake Residents Association are delighted a cut block above their community has been altered to protect a major viewscape. Executive member Bryon Every says the discussion process was long and

arduous but the result was worth it. “It was a difficult process with the government and the BC Timber Sales (BCTS) but we were finally able to come up with something that worked for everybody,” he says. As well as having one of the highest-profile views-

d e t i m Li ime T er ff O www.salmonarmgm.com

capes above the lake, the proposed cut block was a very young and healthy stand of timber. “The question was, why do you have to log that piece knowing how important it is to the community when there are other areas that could be logged,” said Every.

“Through many discussions and emails, we were able to get several different parties together and had a five-hour meeting on Nov. 6,” he says, noting there was representation from the Ministry of Forests, Vernon Forest District, and BC Timber Sales. “What stemmed from the meet-

ing and what we inevitably ended up with was a 40-60 split.” Every says BCTS originally planned to take 70 per cent of the timber in the stand in a patch form that concerned White Lake residents. See Redesign on page 2

Redesign includes buffer zone Continued from front “We felt there were flaws in the design of that block and the long and the short of it is we actually came out with more than we asked for.” “BCTS became willing and nice to work with,” he says. “They took our concerns to heart and pretty much implemented what we asked for, and changed their logging plans accordingly.” An originally nonexistent buffer between the proposed cut block and private property was replaced with a 75-metre wide buffer, something Every describes as a huge gain for the community. “They redesigned patches, added to some that were weak, and made a considerable amount of adjustments to the logging plan,” he says. “There was a list of some pretty strict rules that normally don’t go into a logging plan and they’ve committed to putting a BCTS rep on site every second day to make sure everything is being followed.” Every says he’s hoping the association’s work will benefit other communities. “What we’re hoping

now, and we have had confirmation, is that they also agreed a community shouldn’t have to go through what we did to resolve issues,” Every says. “We feel we made a milestone and that this could affect future negotiations about logging with other communities.” But Every’s talk of a negotiation does not sit well with Colin Johnston, a woodlands supervisor for BC Timber Sales’ OkanaganColumbia Business Area.

“We can’t negotiate everything, but we can listen... and find solutions that meet those concerns.” - Colin Johnston, BC Timber Sales

“It’s very important we don’t get on the negotiation thing,” he says. “Our job is to balance all the values for all British Columbians as it is a public resource.” Johnston says one of those values is to get a fair return to the province’s taxpayers, while other values include meeting visual quality

objectives set by government, protecting recreational trails and dealing with wildlife concerns. “We’re not going to negotiate,” he emphasizes. “We can’t negotiate everything, but we can listen to the concerns and find solutions that meet those concerns.” Having made it clear that the word discussion should replace negotiation, Johnston says White Lake residents were extremely easy to get along with and worked to a good compromise. “It is important to us because we have other forestry operations in the area and other timber sales, and we want to make sure to set the right precedent in community involvement and working with the community,” Johnston says, noting the White Lake cut block included some old approved blocks. “The community had one perception and we had another perception, so it took some discussion.” Through the discussion it made sense to retain some of the timber, says Johnston, who maintains BCTS is happy the parties were able to work it out and come to an amenable solution.

Blaze guts Granite Creek winery By Barb Brouwer

MARKET NEWS STAff

An early-morning fire at Granite Creek Estate Wines in Tappen has destroyed the winery and thousands of dollars worth of wine. Firefighters from the Tappen-Sunnybrae Volunteer Fire Department responded at 5:30 a.m. Jan. 15 to find the winery fully engulfed. Heather Kennedy, who owns the winery in partnership with her husband Gary and son and daughter-in-law Doug and Mayka Kennedy, says all the wine that was being aged in oak barrels was destroyed. “We have no wine, all our stuff for the next few years is gone, all the wine that was being aged in oak for three to four years is gone,” she said, admitting the Kennedys were in a state of shock. Heather says the twostorey winery that specialized in red wines, had six different varieties on the go, with a supply of port just ready for bottling. Not only were the

wines destroyed, but the downstairs bottling line as well. And while insurance adjusters were on the scene by mid-morning Tuesday, Heather says it won’t give the family back what they have put into Granite Creek over the past 10 years. “You never get what you put into it,” she said. The Kennedys have no idea where or how the fire started. Heather says Gary got up at around 4:30 a.m. and, surprised by the fact the water was not running, thought perhaps the cold temperature had frozen the lines. When he looked out the window to check the thermometer, he saw the winery in full blaze and called 911. “It’s just a shock, just the shock of it all,” Heather said, expressing gratitude to the Tappen-Sunnybrae firefighters. “Thank God it didn’t get the house.” The wine shop located in the Kennedy’s nearby home has a small inventory of bottled wine. Some of

While the vineyards were untouched by the blaze, Heather says the future of Granite Creek remains to be seen. The Kennedys will continue to sell what is left of their stock. Customers are asked to call 250-835-0049 before visiting the winery.

n Firefighters sift through what’s left of

Granite Creek Estates winery after it was destroyed in the early morning hours of Jan. 15. A residence and wine shop on the property were not damaged. their wines are also currently available in local stores. Columbia Shuswap Regional District fire services co-ordinator Kenn Mount says the structure was fully engulfed when the 14 Ta p p e n - S u n ny b r a e firefighters arrived at the winery. “The crews arrived quickly and approached the fire defensively; they were able to handle the situation very well. I am impressed with how well the fire officers did command-

ing this incident,” says Mount. “The Tappen-Sunnybrae Volunteer Fire Department has a large number of new recruits, who still have less than one-year service and they performed very well at this incident.” Mount was helping with the investigation Tuesday morning. He says the source of the fire was in the basement and is not considered suspicious. The investigation was continuing, but a cause had not yet been determined.

Dreams of hot music banish chill

n Pianist Ben Waters will be back at the Roots and Blues Festival in August. Chris Rand and Adam Davey on sax and Richard Hymas on bass.    Closer to home, and ready to share their own brand of “blues for a changing world,” its Vancouver’s The Harpoonist and the Axe Murderer (HAM). The music of Shawn Hall and Matthew Rogers has been describes as being “akin to a sweaty fling between a sack full of harmonicas, a mess of foot percussion and a very greasy telecaster.”  Hall provides soultinged vocals and distinctly dirty blues harp, while Rogers simultaneously pours out throbbing drum grooves and guitar licks. The duo has played festivals all over Western Canada, sharing the stage with some of the world’s finest blues acts including Jim Byrnes, Dick Dale, and MonkeyJunk.

Another new performer is Malcolm Holcombe, whose new album Down the River, his ninth, is born from that bed of contradictions we all lie in. There are songs here such as Twisted Arms and Whitewash Job that sizzle with anger at a society that seems intent on losing its way and running over its poor and disenfranchised.  These are coupled with songs from a softer, more generous perspective such as The Crossing and In Your Mercy, written in the voice of an old woman who sees “All I worked for/…sold and surely gone,” but who trusts that “many years will tell the truth.”  The multiple perspectives of these songs speak of the man who wrote them. Holcombe takes the stage in the same clothes he wore driving to the gig, and his soft voice, rasped

from years of smoking and singing to be heard in honky tonks, rises to a howl as he frails his guitar with furious precision. He stomps, growls, rolls his eyes as he plays, then between songs cuts the tension with a corny joke.  A once-legendary drinker and hell-raiser, Holcombe is now many years sober and embraces a gentle if nonspecific spirituality. There are stories from his time of drinking, drugs and wild behaviour, but like most in recovery, Holcombe would rather let the past stay in the past. “It’s miracle to be here every day,” he offers. “I’m just glad to be able to drive on my side of the road.” The core of each of his songs is Holcombe’s voice, which can growl like a cement truck in low gear or mellow into a heart-tugging croon, and his guitar playing. Holcombe plays with his bare fingers and his percussive attack makes it easy to overlook the precision with which he plays.  The acts of writing songs and playing music have always been hopeful ones, however bleak the subject matter of the songs might be.  “With many more performers to be released in the upcoming weeks and months, including some big-time surprises,  take advan-

The weather outside may be frightful, but the summer will be delightful. Just seven months remain to the 21st version of the Roots & Blues Festival plays out Aug. 16 to 18 and three stellar acts have already signed on – boogie woogie piano virtuoso Ben Waters, Maple Blues Award nominees The Harpoonist and the Axe Murderer, and Appalachian real deal Malcolm Holcombe. From the age of 14, Waters’ life has been centred around his music.   The first boogie woogie he heard was Meade Lux Lewis’s classic Honky Tonk Train.  He heard it once and played it back note for note.     From a very ordinary home, Waters found pursuing his musical dreams an uphill struggle. School pianos were locked away from him because he wasn’t playing classical music. Without formal training, Waters turned professional at the age of 17 and  has played with such notables as Jools Holland, Shakin’ Stevens, Ray Davies, Jerry Lee Lewis and Chuck Berry, Waters tours the world with a stellar group of hand-picked musicians, who are stars in their own right:   Ady Milward on drums (who has chart-topped with other groups);

Tories need to dispense with omnibus bills

If the Conservative government hasn’t already thought about its penchant for omnibus bills in Parliament, it needs to. The Idle No More movement has focused its attention on changes to the Navigable Waters Protection Act and Environmental Assessment Act, which are rolled into an omnibus bill. These bills give MPs little chance to debate important issues because there are so many items jammed together. Omnibus bills began appearing during the five years the Conservatives had a minority, and were often crafted to keep at least one opposition party from voting against the government. While this was an understandable strategy, the need for omnibus bills does not exist when there is a majority government. But the government likes the approach, because it limits the usefulness of Parliament and the ability of critics to draw public attention. That worked fine when the critics were solely from the opposition parties. But when they are from outside Parliament and are energized by a variety of causes, omnibus bills have the potential to do a great deal of harm. The harm comes from emasculating legitimate opposition in Parliament, where democratic differences need to be discussed. If too many people believe Parliament doesn’t work, and this leads them to damage Canada’s economy because of their frustration, omnibus bills become very dangerous. The Conservative government has a majority, and it should be ready and willing to hear criticism of its plans within an elected assembly. Idle No More has the potential to serve as a force for change. The federal government needs to choose a path which is working towards positive change — on all types of issues. – Langley Times

OpiniOn

Time to forget about winter Last week I stepped out of the house for the first time in the better part of a week. I’d had the flu, not at all unlike a lot of other people. I just needed some fresh air after having been cooped up for too long. After putting up my collar and pulling down my hat, I decided to go for a walk in the freshly fallen snow. It was, well, quiet and peaceful – and very, very white. After walking for a few minutes, I realized I was heading for McGuire Lake. Even under the snow, the grass and trees around McGuire Lake represented, at least in my mind, a small green oasis from the dirty grey of the streets and sidewalks and concrete buildings that I look at every day when I’m downtown. When I got there, I brushed the snow from one of the benches, sat down and took a great big breath of fresh air. I sat there and just enjoyed the silence. It was almost like music swirling all around me. I shut my eyes and imagined I was up at the lake –

The GreaT OuTdOOrs James Murray anywhere but in the middle of a grey, concrete city. I let the peace wash over me like waves over the rocks. I listened to some sort of songbird, twittering among the reeds. For a moment, a very brief moment, I thought if I opened my eyes it would be spring and the grass would be green, and the promise of a new year might begin to unfold in front of me. I wanted so much for it to be spring, but deep down inside I knew it was still the middle of January and that we still have another few months of snow. I sat there for the longest time, eyes shut, enjoying my imaginary coming of spring. When I finally opened my

eyes, I felt a lot better. I really did. I was ready to cope. I sat there for a while longer, watching a group of ducks that were huddled together in the last bit of remaining open water. I did not feel quite so alone. As I watched them, my mind’s eye began to focus in on the long fingers of shadow, cast by a leafless tree nearby. They seemed to wrap themselves around the ducks like a long thin black hand. I guess I cannot help but think like a photographer. How many times have I looked at something and started to compose a picture in my mind’s eye? I can’t help myself, I guess. I think of where the light is coming from, how it is falling on the subject. I look to see what elements are important to the image. What are the important details: what shutter speed; horizontal or vertical? Ducks on the surface of the water? That would lend itself to horizontal – and so on and so on. Some days I take a thousand pictures without ever using my camera.

Just then a semi came by with its air brakes on. Several of the ducks took flight. The others just paddled a little further away from the sound. So much for peace and tranquility. As I sat there on the bench, I thought of a line from Ecclesiastes – or at least I know it’s a line from a Pete Seeger song that says: “To everything there is a season and a time for every purpose.” I like the changing of the seasons, one into another. I also like to think that there is some purpose to life. How many times have I sat there on one of those benches, on a warm summer’s day, enjoying the warmth on my face and watched a red-winged blackbird sitting perched on a bullrush? I used to like sitting there and watching the kids fishing, but that’s a whole other issue. Having sat there for a while in the snow, I came to the conclusion that we do not need winter. Why can’t we just go directly from autumn to spring and forget about winter altogether?

Tests provide useful information This is a response to the message to parents in an advertisement from the North Okanagan-Shuswap Teachers Association entitled, “What parents need to know.” Here are some things the Foundation Skills Assessment (FSA) will do for you an your children: • It will provide a picture of how he/she is doing relative to other students in the same grade within B.C.

• It will provide an opportunity to see if the teachers are actually doing what they are paid to do • It will provide some measure of how the student may rank compared to students in other parts of the world. Canadian students will increasingly be competing for jobs with peers from around the world • It will provide a picture of how well this school jurisdiction

“It will provide an opportunity to see if the teachers are actually doing what they are paid to do.”

is doing compared to others in B.C. • It may provide a picture of how well a particular school is do-

ing within the district These are all useful things for parents to know. I should know because I am a parent, may I add with three children who did well in school and have very successful careers, and I am a retired teacher, albeit from Alberta, a place where teachers do more than strike or talk strike 50 per cent of the time.

International development a critical issue I hope Canada will cancel its cuts on international development during the new year. After freezing foreign aid, the Conservatives announced last year they would be cutting the budget of the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) by $319 million over three years. As we know, this would condemn a countless number of men, women and children to suffering, dis-

ease and death. It will also slow down all the efforts we have made up until now in vaccination, access to education and better living for the poorest of the world. For perspective, $319 million over three years is not such a big amount when compared to the $11.5 billion gift the Conservative government is giving the rich companies in tax benefits for 2013-2014 – as indicated by the Cana-

SilverBacks Hockey

UR COUNTRY

dian Centre for Policy Alternatives in its 2012 Alternative Federal Budget. It is not much either when compared to Canada’s $21.1 billion military budget. (I use the term “foreign aid” to be well understood but, in my mind, it’s not aid. It’s rather giving back to the poorest of the world a tiny part of what they were stripped of by rich countries over the years, through

intimidation, military presence, destabilization, destruction of their infrastructure and freeze and seizure of their assets.) I am not rich, I did not contribute to Mr. Harper’s party and I am not either a creationist. Still, I do hope Mr. Harper won’t forget me and the poorest of the world in 2013 and will cancel its cuts on international development. Bruno Marquis

n Volunteers have begun reconstruction of Holy Cross Church, which is situated close to the CP Rail tracks near the Notch Hill crossing. The society formed to undertake the work is looking for photos of the Roman Catholic Church between 1930 and the late 1960s when it was an active parish.

Abandoned church to get new life Volunteers of Friends of the 1922 Notch Hill Church Society have begun the reconstruction of the Roman Catholic Holy Cross Church. When they began the project, the building was in a state of near collapse from severe damage to the east side of the roof and wall

and weather damage. The building has been abandoned since the early 1970s. The objective is to rebuild it architecturally, as it was first built. What the society needs desperately in order to achieve this goal are copies of any photographs of the early days of the church.

The society is asking anyone who may have had a connection with this church during the years – throughout the ’30s, ’40s, ’50s and ’60s – for photos that show the church in its prime and can be copied. The photos will be returned to the owners. These will help the so-

ciety achieve preservation of this historic building. If you have any information that may help in this restoration, photos of the church when it was an active parish, or if you would like to volunteer in this project, contact Louise Barber at 250-2535776.

Music rooted in past, present

Annie Lou is coming back to town. Annie Lou – the band, that is – performed two years ago on the stage at the Salmon Arm Roots and Blues Festival, as well as last year at the Sorrento Bluegrass Festival, where fans could not get enough of their good old-time, footstomping bluegrass and country music. Annie Lou will perform in concert at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 23 at Carlin Hall. Built around the

original songwriting styles of Anne Louise Genest and driven by fiddle and banjo, along with guitar, upright bass and plenty of solid vocals, Annie Lou has a foot rooted in both the past and the present. Their music is new and original, yet old and familiar all at the same time. The current band is comprised of Genest on guitar, vocals and banjo, Kim Barlow on vocals and banjo, Andrew Collins on fiddle

CSRD looks at sewer options

The Columbia Shuswap Regional District (CSRD) has formed two separate committees, one for Scotch Creek and the other for Sorrento/Blind Bay, to explore alternate options for community sewer systems. A Liquid Waste Management Plan (LWMP) was completed in Electoral Area C (South Shuswap) and in Electoral Area F (North Shuswap) in 2009. Both LWMPs recommended creation of a community sewer system. However, limited grant opportunity coupled with identified costs at the time put plans of community sewer systems out of economic reach. These two multi-stakeholder committees will work with a consultant to review and amend the current LWMPs to investigate more affordable options. The committees are made up of CSRD staff, the respective area directors, representatives from Interior Health Authority, Ministry of Environment and First Nations as well as two members of the public. “We are determined to turn over every stone in an effort to find feasible and affordable solutions,” says Electoral Area C Director Paul Demenok. “The residents of the Shuswap want to see the lake cleaned up and well-maintained for future generations, and this is our approach to meeting that challenge.” Electoral Area F director Larry Morgan says it’s essential for a sanitary sewer system be in place in order for Scotch Creek to fulfill its role as a primary settlement area. “At the same time,” adds Morgan, “a sanitary sewer system will further serve to improve and protect the local ground water and aquifer underlying the community, and ultimately the lake itself.” Public consultation is one of the top priorities of the process. The consultant is required to submit a communication plan that encourages community input. The final reports are expected to be complete in July, 2013.

kill the invasive perch, the fishermen stopped going there and the campground became a party destination that resulted in shameful vandalism. Now that the lake has been restocked, the fishers have returned and there is hope that the party crowd will go elsewhere. The Skmana area has an intriguing past. In 1911, the Adams River logging company built the massive, timber framed 11-km long Bear Creek flume that moved the logs from the hills to the river, where they were eventually transported in booms to the mill in Chase.

“Local skiers appreciate Skmana’s casual atmosphere, its close proximity to the West and North Shuswap, and its diversity of terrain.”

Skmana Lake served then as a holding pond for the adjacent timber prior to it being sent down the giant, fivefoot wide water slide to the river. During the Second World War, there was a Japanese internment camp near the lake, and only recently were the buildings demolished. And in the 1970s, a biathlon training centre

was built at Skmana, but was never used. The idea for a Chase area ski club first began to get going in the mid1980s when a group of committed Nordic skiers from Chase began to look for an area to ski in and chose Niskonlith Lake. They made their own trails in those early days and a Jackrabbit program was launched to teach children from the community how to ski. After a few years they realized that the ski conditions were unreliable at Niskonlith Lake and they began to search for a better area. A forester in the group who worked for Adams Lake Lumber helped them pick the Skmana Lake area, as above the lake was an old network of logging roads and skid trails. And the forestry company then assisted the group by clearing the brush off the trails and rounding the curves with a bulldozer. In 1990, the group formed a society and purchased a used Bombardier groomer. Key to the club’s early success was the support in Chase from Brian and Trish David’s sport store, The Starting Line, that sold and rented skis and served as a centre for the club. By the mid ’90s, there were upwards of 30 children in the weekend Jackrabbit program with four in-

Communities join Madonna’s quest for clean air Living WEll Madonna took a firm stand with fans who were smoking near the stage at her Dec. 19 concert in Santiago, Chile. “If you’re going to smoke cigarettes, I’m not doing a show” she told the group of smokers at her soundcheck before the concert. “I’m not kidding. I can’t sing if you smoke… If you love me, don’t smoke.” With that, the pop star left the stage, only returning hours later to start the performance. Blunt words from the Queen of Pop,

who was wrapping up her highly successful six-month MDNA tour. After 86 concert dates, Madge might be forgiven for wanting to protect her milliondollar instrument: her voice. Her rant may have perplexed the crowd who were attending the performance at the Estadio Nacional, a huge open-air stadium in Santiago. Madonna has banned smoking at all her concerts, even in outdoor arenas and in those countries where smoking is still allowed in indoor public places. Here in Canada, smoking in indoor public places is thankfully a thing of the past.

Increasingly, communities across the country are strengthening outdoor restrictions as well. Outdoor smoking bylaws are in place in a number of B.C. municipalities such as Vancouver, Kelowna and Duncan, and are under consideration in several others. Why ban smoking in outdoor areas like beaches, playgrounds, trails and parks? In addition to protecting people from harmful exposure to tobacco smoke, outdoor smoking bans lessen the environmental impact of forest fires, toxic litter and risks to wildlife. Equally important, these bylaws are one of the most effective

tools in de-normalizing tobacco use in communities. Youth who grow up in smoke-free communities are much less likely to start smoking, and those who do smoke find it easier to quit. Smoking bans are a major contributor to declines in B.C.’s smoking rate, consistently the lowest in the country, at 18 per cent. Municipalities that have enacted outdoor smoking restrictions have reported few issues. A Waterloo University study on an outdoor bylaw enacted in Woodstock Ontario in 2008 indicated success: smoking was reduced in restricted areas and support for the ban increased, espe-

cially among smokers. Smoke free outdoor spaces not only protect Madonna’s priceless pipes; they protect our children and our environment. It appears the movement for smokefree outdoor spaces is taking hold. Wouldn’t the Material Girl be proud? To learn more about what you can do to encourage smokefree public places in your community visit: http://www.hcsc.gc.ca/hc-ps/pubs/ tobac-tabac/sfpp-fslp/ index-eng.php#below - Trish Hill is a Tobacco Reduction Coordinator with Interior Health.

One-to-One reading volunteers needed in schools If you love to read and are interested in working with children, consider becoming a volunteer with the One-to-One Children’s literacy Program. One-to-One reading programs are taking place this year at Bastion Elementary, Hillcrest, South Broadview, North Canoe, Salmon Arm West, Ranchero, Silver Creek, Carlin, Grindrod, MV Beattie, Parkview, Sorrento, North Shuswap, Highland Park, and Armstrong Elementary schools. Parent and community volunteers are

needed to support our students with their reading. The commitment is 1.5 hours per week from mid-February until mid-May. During that time, you will read with three children for 30 minutes each. The children are in grades 2 to 5 and are selected by their teachers to receive this special reading help. All tutoring is done at the school during regular school hours. A three-hour training session for all volunteers in basic reading strategies is mandatory for volunteers as well

as an RCMP criminal record check. Volunteers can choose one of the following training sessions to attend: Tuesday, Feb. 5 from

9 a.m. to noon at MV Beattie Elementary in Enderby. Thursday, Feb. 7 from 9 a.m. to noon at Hillcrest Elementary in Salmon Arm.

Polio Eradication Update After 25 years of hard work, Rotary and its partners are on the brink of eradicating this tenacious disease, but a strong push is needed now to root it out once and for all. It is a window of opportunity of historic proportions. As long as polio threatens even one child anywhere in the world, children everywhere remain at risk. The stakes are that high.

A total of 26,220 mouse clicks brought the Eagle Valley Food Bank nearly $3,000 and second place in the Kraft Food for Families contest for the Pacific region. The promotion took place in two parts. In the first, 50 cents was donated to the Eagle Valley Food Bank for every time a person clicked in a vote until a regional maximum of $20,000 was reached. This is how the community generated a total of $2,980.50 for the food bank. Following that, a $5,000 prize was available for the community that generated the largest number of votes overall. In this, Sicamous, with a staggering 26,220 votes, placed behind Nanaimo. “For a community of our size, per capita, to keep up with a community the size of Nanaimo, it was really a tremendous effort,” says Leanne Watson, with the Eagle Valley Resource Centre. “When we started, we had no clue we could even come anywhere close to 26,000 votes.” Voters were only allowed to cast one ballot per day, so there were many fingers clicking on a regular basis. “We know this was not just Sicamous, but that we had a lot of help from people in the outlying areas. We are just so very thankful for all the people who took their time, it means a lot,” adds Watson. In total through the Kraft promotion, communities donated $100,000 to food banks across Canada. Decisions have not yet been made on how to use the donated money, but the Eagle Valley Food Bank is hoping to set up a garden project, as well as refurbish their kitchen with new equipment. “Every penny counts for us, so this is really great,” says Watson.

n With only 15.2 seconds left in a tie game versus the Nelson Leafs, the puck slips by Heat goalie #31 Jacob Mattes in a dramatic double overtime finale on Friday, Jan. 11 at the Art Holding Arena. The final score was Leafs 3, Heat 2.

Heartbreaker for Heat Friday

By Scott Koch coNtrIButor

This past weekend the Chase Heat Junior Hockey Club was faced with a pair of games of significant magnitude. On Friday, Jan. 11 they faced the KIJHL League-leading Nelson Leafs in their home arena. Eleven minutes in, the Heat opened scoring with Marc Mackenzie firing it and Nicho-

las Fidanza and new recruit Mitchell Dolman getting the assists. The Leafs got a pair before the Heat evened things up with 17 minutes gone in the third, with Drew Wilde getting the goal and Reece Forman and Ryan Beach helping with the assist. The two teams went into overtime with the Leafs getting the game winner with 15 seconds left in the sec-

ond overtime period. It was a huge effort and a well-deserved single point for the tie after regulation in a clean, fast-action contest. On Saturday, Jan. 12, the team headed to Princeton to take on the Okanagan Divisionleading Posse. This was a rough and tumble contest with the vigilante group taking a 4 - 2 victory.

Chase scored two short-handed markers, the first from Mckenzie Guardiero assisted by Dolman and the second was landed in the net by Wilde with a little help from Mackenzie. The second period in this game featured three separate sets of fisticuffs with the Posse getting the most minutes awarded for mayhem. In other Heat news,

the team has traded Aiden Silzer-Hooker to the Revelstoke Grizzlies and Dom Hodges to Sicamous Eagles and brought in two players from Langley, Mitchell Dolman, a defenceman, and Michael Rand, a skilled forward. Next Saturday night the Armstrong-based Knights come to town followed by the Grand Forks Border Bruins on Sunday.

Family Games Night coming up Jan. 21 at Haldane From games, skates and books, Chase will be celebrating literacy week in a multitude of ways this year. The Chase Literacy Program is hosting its first Family Games Night of the new year

at Haldane Elementary School. While the students of Chase are taking part in the their own reading programs, others in the community have also stepped in to help raise aware-

ness and fill some bookshelves. This free event will be held on Jan. 21, from 5 to 7 p.m. in the gym. Haldane PAC will be running a concession with all proceeds going to Haldane.

There will be a drop-off box for donations of books for The Chase Bright Red Bookshelf, so parents are asked to go through their home libraries and see what they can pass on.

A free family skate and activities will be taking place on Saturday, Jan. 26, from 10 a.m. to noon. Those attending are asked to bring a book for donation and help fill the penalty box.

Homeowners warned to lock up The RCMP are developing new leads as they continue their investigation into a series of thefts occurring in the Scotch Creek area. Chase RCMP continue to advise residents in Scotch Creek and surrounding areas to tighten up security on their property as the rash of break-ins continues after the Christmas season. There are no similarities connecting the break-ins, says Sgt.

RCMP R e P o RT Gary Heebner of the Chase detachment, other than the fact that houses are being broken into and things are being stolen. Both seasonal and full-time residences are being targeted, some with items being stolen from the yard or sheds and trailers, others with

the thieves entering into the houses. “`They are taking a lot of electronics,” says Heebner, “but they are also taking anything and everything that is not nailed down.” The RCMP have developed a few working theories and are still investigating.

“At this point we don’t think it is a large, organized group but one or two individuals,” explains Heebner. Police are asking residents in the area to make sure all doors and windows are locked, that sheds, trailers and other things easily accessible to potential theft are properly secured and nothing is left out in the open. Heebner continues to stress the importance of proper securi-

ty monitoring systems and how valuable they can be in situations such as this. The Chase RCMP will continue to investigate the incidents and will be increasing surveillance in the area by having more cars in the area overnight, as well as a general increase in police presence. If anyone has any information on the breakins, they’re asked to call the Chase RCMP at 250-832-3221.

Village council discusses vacation home rentals Council has determined that the village does not, at this time, regulate in relation to vacation rentals. This means those who rent out their homes during the summer months do not need business licences to do so. However, it was decided that the issue of short-term holiday home rentals in Chase be referred to the official community plan for discussion of pos-

CounCil noTeS sible revisions. Also discussed was whether parking permits should be issued for bed and breakfasts. After looking into the matter it was discovered that there are no ongoing parking violations from the village’s Streets and Parking

Bylaw regarding this matter.

Reaching out In an attempt to bridge the gap between the village and local First nations bands, council has decided that the administration will invite the Little

Shuswap Indian Band council and administrator to meet informally with village council and staff. The meeting will be followed by a tour of village facilities and a luncheon. The proposed dates are Jan. 28 or Feb. 4 at 10 a.m. Council hopes to extend this same invitation to the Adams Lake Indian Band as well as the neskonlith Indian Band in the near future.

Youth funding Village of Chase council approved a letter of support to the District employment Centre for their proposal to Service Canada for funding to run a youth-focused Skills Link Program.

Ditches deferred Council moved to discuss the ditches along Brooke Drive at a later date.

Lots of activities despite winter weather The sunny Shuswap can still be fun even when it is covered in snow; you just need to know where to look. During the summer there is plenty to do in the Shuswap. Whether it is boating, swimming, hiking or just relaxing in the park, there is never a shortage of ideas. The winter months, however, can be a little more difficult to find activities that will get you out of the house and having fun. Elena Markin, Chase Chamber of Commerce manager, suggests there are plenty of things happening in and around Chase even in the snow-filled months. The Skmana Ski Club will be hosting a Snowshoe Family Fun day Sunday, Jan. 20. Those wishing to attend are asked to meet at the

Admission can be paid at the front door, and game dates can be found in the What’s On section of this paper or on the team’s website at www.chaseheat.com. If you’d rather get out and play a game of hockey instead of simply watching from the stands, Markin suggest stopping by the drop-in hockey which runs each Sunday at 8 p.m. at the Art Holding Arena. If you would like to get back to the roots of hockey and enjoy the game on a natural pond, Markin suggests checking out the river down by the VLA on cold afternoons, as

well as Chum Lake. Check carefully the strength of the ice before heading out. If you would like to hit the ice, but avoid the hockey scene, the chamber manager suggests checking out the public skating available at the arena every Friday from 3 to 4 p.m., Saturday from 12:15 to 1:15 p.m., and Sunday from 6:45 to 7:45. For more information on this event, call 250-679-2800. For fishing enthusiasts, the winter months are no reason to miss out. Markin suggests heading to Chum Lake as well as Phillips Lake.

Maerz to fight in the Big Apple Peggy Maerz, head coach of the Bulldogs Boxing Club, leaves Sunday for New York City for a fight at the BB King Bar & Grill in Manhattan. It’s a pretty big event, says Mickey Sims, her trainer and manager Maerz, a pro-fighter, is going to be fighting Heather Hardy at the Broadway Boxing event. It’s a four-round warm-up fight for her leading up to her goal of the Canadian Bantam Weight Belt in Calgary on April 4. “It’s going to be really tough because we had to move up two weight classes,” says Sims. “She usually fights at 115 lbs. This fight is at 122.” Sims says Maerz’s opponent is taller and heavier. “It’s going to be a tough fight but that’s what we’re looking for to make sure she wins that Canadian belt in April.”

MARJORIE BEATRICE “MADGE” ATCHISON 1926 - 2013 It is with sadness that the family of Madge Atchison announces her passing on January 11, 2013 at Hillside Village at the age of 86 years. Madge was born in Milden Saskatchewan on September 29, 1926 to parents Arthur and Mabel Rouse. Madge was predeceased by her husband Stew in 2001.

CONNIE JONES Connie Jones passed away on Thursday, January 10, 2013 at the age of 94. A celebration of her life and interment in the Blind Bay Cemetery will be held at a later date.  Predeceased by her husband, Monty, and parents, Harry and Margaret Reedman of Blind Bay and lovingly remembered by her sister, Phyllis MacArthur, Salmon Arm, her son Larry (Julie) Jones, Vernon, daughter Nancy (George) Alison, Eagle Bay, grandsons, Rick Alison, Invermere, and Scott (Betty) Alison, Salmon Arm, and two great grandsons, Will and Chris.  Connie grew up in Blind Bay and spent most of her life there and in Salmon Arm.  But in 1942 she bravely set off on her own, with her 6 month old baby, on a cross – Canada train trip to join Monty, who was stationed in Nova Scotia, serving with the Canadian Air Force.  She had a life-long love of Blind Bay and the Shuswap and over the years spent many happy hours picnicking and camping in the area.  Connie worked hard on the family apple and cherry orchard, kept a large vegetable garden, canning and preserving the produce.  She enjoyed her flower gardens which she tended well into her late eighties, was a wonderful baker and made the best pies.  She was active in the Blind Bay community and enjoyed bowling for many years.  In their retirement years she and Monty travelled widely.  She was a kind and gentle soul and we will certainly miss her. The family would like to thank the staff of Dogwood, in Piccadilly Care Centre for their kind and caring support of Mom during her last 2 years of life. Arrangements are in the care of Bowers Funeral Home and Crematorium, Salmon Arm. On line condolences can be sent through Connie’s obituary at www. bowersfuneralservice.com
