Swimming pool gets cash infusion

Salmon Arm: Federal grant of $247,000 to update 25-year-old infrastructure. By Martha Wickett

market news staff

The odds of a big equipment breakdown at the aging pool in Salmon Arm have just decreased considerably. Wednesday morning North Okanagan-Shuswap MP Colin Mayes was in town, bearing gifts. On behalf of Western Economic Diversification, he presented a cheque for $247,000 to be used for improvements to the SASCU Rec-

reation Centre. The funds, which come from the federal government’s Community Infrastructure Improvement Fund, will be matched by $250,000 the City of Salmon Arm holds in reserve, combining for a half-million dollar upgrade to the pool. “It’s been a while since we gathered for some really great news,” said a pleased Carl Bannister, the city’s chief administrative officer, in introducing Mayes. “I think this will create a sense

of optimism in the community and we’re all very excited about it.” Dale Berger, general manager for the Shuswap Recreation Society that runs the facility, told the Observer the funds will go to two main projects at the pool: new boilers, as the old ones are “way past their life span,” and an ultra-violet light water disinfection system to augment the chlorine system. Berger said water quality is currently hard to maintain when the pool is so busy, and the UV light

SLIPP forging ahead

Transition: Committee plans to meet more frequently. By Barb Brouwer

MARKET NEWS STAff

MARThA WicKETT/MARKET NEWS

n Okanagan-Shuswap MP Colin Mayes stands at the soon-to-be-upgraded pool with Coun. Denise Reimer; Mayor Nancy Cooper; city administrator Carl Bannister; Coun. Marg Kentel; Salmon Arm Economic Development manager Lana Fitt; Shuswap Recreation Society general manager Dale Berger and Coun. Chad Eliason.

Pool to get UV filtration, new boilers, updated locker rooms Continued from front entrance, new lockers, new drainage on the pool decks, and updated heat exchangers to transfer heat to the pool and hot tub. He said the improvements could extend the life of the 26-year-old facility by 10 years. “Right now we are maxed out in the pool. Our biggest fear now is catastrophic failure of a piece of equipment. If we can get ourselves another 10 years, it will give us time to plan what to do next… possibly building a new facility or renovating this one.” Although a future energy exchange between the pool and the ice rinks has been touted as an energy saver, Berger said the present price of natural gas

significantly decreases any payoffs from such a huge project. Following design work for the latest project and awarding of tenders, the pool will be shut down for a month to carry out the improvements, probably from mid-August to mid-September, Berger said. This would be a two-week extension of the annual two-week shutdown in September. Mayes congratulated those who put together the funding application as well as former city maintenance supervisor, Jim Ellis, who repaired pool equipment for many years. One aspect of the federal government, Mayes said with a smile, “is you send us money back east and once in a while you get it back.” He noted that the

funds are a good investment for the community. “Good facilities invite people to come to our town.” Mayor Nancy Cooper said the timing is perfect. “The big part about this is we will be able to do all these repairs without a tax increase. We really, really appreciate it. There just comes a time when things need to be upgraded.” Bannister added his appreciation of Ellis’ work in keeping the pool operating, saying he has “duct-taped and jerry-rigged every piece of equipment.” He also thanked city staff and Salmon Arm Economic Development Manager Lana Fitt for their work on the funding application.

SLIPP is not sliding away – not yet anyway. Shuswap Lake Integrated Planning Process steering committee members met in City of Salmon Arm council chambers Feb. 1 to discuss the project’s future. The Fraser Basin Council had been asked to take over administration of the process at the end of 2012 amid concerns regarding oversight and communication issues. SLIPP was created in 2007 in response to concerns regarding increased development, pollution entering lakes in the Shuswap watershed, and conflicting recreation demands. Ian McGregor, then-Fish and Wildlife manager of the Ministry of Environment’s Thompson Region, was the main catalyst in the group that included stakeholders from various levels of government and environmental groups. Priorities were established with one of the top ones being the need for water-quality monitoring, something that couldn’t be accomplished without a substantial cash infusion. Two years ago, the Thompson Nicola Regional District, Salmon Arm, Sicamous and Columbia Shuswap Regional District electoral areas C, D, E and F agreed to fund a three-year pilot project with annual allocations of $335,000. Prior to his death, Electoral Area C South Shuswap director Ted Bacigalupo, who was a champion and chair of SLIPP’s steering committee, enthusiastically kept partners up-to-date on activities. Following his death, McGregor was overseeing both technical and administrative roles. The funding partners had hoped to relieve McGregor of the administrative pressures allowing him to concentrate on

the technical committee, where where we’re going and what, if his skills were invaluable. any, changes we need to make. This was something CSRD Beyond that no decisions have chief administrative officer been made at this point.” Charles Hamilton made clear at Morgan admits he was “set a Jan. 9 meeting at the regional back a bit” at being elected chair district office, a suggestion that of the steering committee, conled to McGregor’s resignation. sidering his former criticism of “Ian McGregor has been the the process. driving force behind the initia“Now I’m wearing a different tive and I don’t want to see his hat, so I have to view this with an role diminished in any way; air of responsibility to the progiven his technical expertise and cess,” he says. “I was more of a his history with the SLIPP ini- heckler; now I’m responsible tiative,” Hamilton emphasized, for helping to set the direction of noting he had simply suggested SLIPP going forward.

Fix doesn’t satisfy residents

Hummingbird Creek: Replacement culvert sought. By Lachlan Labere

MARKET NEWS STAff

Swansea Point residents are far from content with the province’s plan for flood mitigation along Hummingbird Creek. Last Wednesday, representatives from the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure attended a public meeting at the Swansea Point Fire Hall to outline their plan to repair the creek. MOTI district manager Murray Tekano said work was to begin Monday, Feb. 18, to restore the creek to the condition it was in prior to the June 23, 2012 flash flood, so that it would be able to handle a one-in-200 year flood based on “clear flow” modelling (i.e.: flooding without debris such as the trees and boulders that came down Hummingbird Creek in the destructive 1997 and 2012 flash floods).  This second phase of work at Swansea Point, said Tekano, will include the removal of rock and other debris from the creek bed. The section from Mara Lake up to the culvert under Highway 97A will be lowered by a meter. In addition, the creek will be “armoured” with riprap rock up to the highway, and along portions on the upper channel, including where water ripped away chunks of residential property, along with rip-rap.

What the ministry will not do is replace the culvert, which was identified by the majority of residents as necessary to mitigate future debris flows similar to the one in June, when the culvert was rapidly plugged, forcing the torrent over the highway and through residential areas. Swansea Point Community Association president Dan Keely says residents are pleased to finally see action from the province to address the creek. At the same time, he says they are dissatisfied, and will likely remain so until the culvert is addressed.  “I feel if they don’t replace that culvert, the same thing is going to happen, whether it’s next year, or the year after… It’s going to happen again,” says Keely, noting how even when there isn’t a dramatic debris flow, water tends to bottleneck at the culvert come freshet. “Because the culvert will not take debris away, as soon as you get a big log down that stream, it blocks that culvert… And if we have a freshet that’s going to be as big as people imagine it’s going to be, and if we get some rain with it, it’s going to happen this year.” The importance of replacing the culvert was repeatedly stressed at the meeting by locals of varying backgrounds,

n Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure district manager Murray Tekano listens patiently as Swansea Point resident Barry Beardsell expresses his concerns. from politics to engineering. “The problem started with the clearcuts above. That’s where it started and, over the years, the debris has worked its way down,” commented Dan Danyluk, a retired engineer. “And right now, the culvert is adequate for the water. But certainly it’s not adequate for the debris. And it’s the debris that has caused both of the incidents here in ’97 and last year.” What residents are seeking is either a larger culvert, one that would allow the debris to flow through, or a bridge, such as the one included in a $4 million project proposed by the province in 2004 that never came to fruition. Tekano, however, said the existing culvert is in “pretty good condition,” but he also said the ministry would be studying the culvert’s effectiveness over the spring.

“I am not saying there’s going to be a bridge built, or there’s going to be anything more done than that,” said Tekano. “But we are looking at more options that we can do. And at some point that culvert will need to be replaced; it’s not going to last.”

Planning required to market LNG The throne speech opening B.C.’s 39th Legislature may have been short on substance, but it did make it abundantly clear that the B.C. Liberals see natural gas exports as the source of the province’s future prosperity. The B.C. Conservative Party was quick off the mark to label this a “We’re gonna win a lottery” throne speech, while NDP leader Adrian Dix said it’s a sign that the Liberals have given up on other sectors of the economy, like forestry, film, high tech and tourism. Rather than convince the province with reasoned arguments that LNG exports would be safe and profitable despite the vagaries of the volatile fuel market, the throne speech instead held out tantalizing, but unsubstantiated hints about what could be done with all that money. Reducing the provincial debt topped the list, along with improvements to social services, investment in education and infrastructure, and the biggest carrot, the elimination of provincial sales tax. The ideas outlined in the throne speech, of course, only apply if the Liberals are re-elected. An NDP government could overturn the whole concept of B.C. becoming a leading exporter of LNG to the energy hungry Asian markets. But should they? There is substance to the concept of exploiting one of the province’s biggest assets. If not now, when? While, as the NDP suggest, supporting existing economic drivers is a primary goal, expanding the province’s economic base should also be on the agenda. What we need is an intelligent approach to bringing B.C. LNG to the world market. As with the province’s five requirements for the Enbridge pipeline, we need a plan to ensure safe production and transport as well as a sound fiscal plan to ensure the province profits, both in terms of taxes and maximizing jobs created in the province. – Penticton Western News

OPINION

Small price to be out on the water It would seem that we spend the first half of our lives acquiring stuff and the second half trying to get rid of it. I know that over the years I have certainly managed to acquire way too much stuff – you know, the kind of things you simply have to have when you see them, use once or twice and then never use again. Some of the things I’ve managed to acquire don’t even make sense. A case in point: I currently own two expensive four-stroke gas boat motors and an electric trolling motor, but no boat. Don’t even ask me. The real question should be how did I manage back in the days when I didn’t even own one boat motor, back when I had to row my boat. All I know is, I managed, and when it comes right down to it, having to row your boat gives you a chance to get to know a lake better. It gives you a chance to keep an eye out for insect hatches coming off and trout rising on the

THE GREAT OUTDOORS James Murray surface to feed. Maybe when I do get around to buying a new boat, I’ll also make a point of using my oars a bit more often as well. I know if I sold the two gas motors I could afford to buy a boat – maybe not a new one, but one good enough for a guy like me. I can’t really say that I miss any of the too-manyto-mention boats that I have owned in my day. A boat is pretty much a utilitarian sort of thing to me. There are, however, a number of things that I could never get rid of, like my father’s cane fly rod and his handmade Scaracione salmon reel. Every time I take either of them out to look at, I think

back on any number of fishing trips we took together. I can see him casting his rod in long smooth loops that just sort of sailed through the air so gracefully. I can see the amber glint of the sun on the Tonkin cane. I can almost hear his laughter, his wonderfully precious laughter. I can almost pick up a hint of his Old Spice aftershave. That stuff must have set him back at least a buck a bottle. Sometimes I go through his fly box and look at all the flies lined up like little soldiers. Flies that he bought, mostly at Gerlovin’s Hardware, and never got around to using. Flies that he continued to buy every time he went in there to pick up some nails or a quart of paint, and ended up talking about fishing. Flies he paid hard earned money for even though he probably knew he would never cast because his legs had grown too weary. Flies he gave to me, along with his two-sided Wheaton fly box, one Sunday afternoon after we had

spent a day casting on the Adams. I know he would have wanted me to use those flies. I also know that he would have a few choice words for me because I have never used them. But somehow, I’ve never been able to bring myself to cast with one of them, in case I lost it on a nice fish. I can just hear him telling me that that’s why the %*@# he bought them. He was a blacksmith, but he was also a wordsmith. According to my father, an artificial fly pattern was “little more than a piece of metal with a few feathers, some wool and a bit of tinsel tied to it,” and was “conceived by one fool and cast by another fool in hopes of fooling a fish that was foolish enough to be fooled by such a foolish thing in the first place.” After all, isn’t losing a few flies but a small price to pay for just being out on the water.

YOUR TIME IS OUR LIFELINE.

n The former location of Salmon Arm GM, which was destroyed by fire, is where a gaming centre will be constructed.

Plans for Adams Lake Band’s gaming centre move ahead By Martha Wickett

market news staff

Construction of a gaming centre in Salmon Arm is expected to begin this summer. The Adams Lake Indian Band has received the approvals it needs to proceed with the centre, says band manager Albert Quinn. “It’s moving along very well,” he told the Observer. “We’re in the final stages of getting the documents between the developer and the band in place.” Construction at the former GM site at 10th Street SW and the Trans-Canada Highway is then expected to take 10 to 12 months. “I believe BCLC (the BC Lottery Commission) has been satisfied on all points, I believe the City of Salmon Arm has been satisfied on all points… I don’t think there’s anything standing in the way at this point.” The centre is not called a casino by the lottery commission because it does not have card

games like poker and blackjack – no table games. Instead, it features online bingo and slot machines. The first phase of the project involves the gaming centre, while a four-storey, 103-room hotel is planned for a second phase of development, he said. The gaming centre will be built with the ability to connect to the proposed hotel. “There’ll be a side entrance as it (the hotel) is to the side. I’m going to suggest access to the hotel will be on the Shell side of the road. The gaming facility will be to the far end, backing up to the Garage Furniture Company.” Quinn said the gaming centre alone is expected to provide about 100 jobs. Regarding the potential for addictions and accompanying social problems, he said: “That’s there and it’s happening anyways. We’re analyzing patrons from Kamloops and Vernon; over 30 per cent are coming

SilverBacks Hockey

from Salmon Arm. We know the clientele are out there. It’s no different from the bars and lounges around that serve liquor.” He notes that concerns about the potential for an increased police presence were brought to city council but, when police were asked, they said there was no information to support that. At gaming centres in Kamloops and Vernon, calls for police have not increased, he said. The gaming centre will help capture shopping dollars, he predicts. “Is it a great thing for the city? I think it’s a good thing. Those people going to Vernon and Kamloops, they’re not only spending money, they’re shopping there,” he said. The proposal came to Salmon Arm council in August. At that time, council members did not object, commenting that while a gaming centre might not be their first choice, it would be an improvement over what now exists.

Band brings bluegrass pot-pourri

Thursday, Feb. 28 • 6:30-8:00 p.m. Saturday, March 2 • 10 a.m. - noon

The stylish folk rhythms of critically acclaimed bluegrass group, John Reischman and the Jaybirds, will soon emanate from Carlin Hall. This is a top-flight band delivering a truly fresh blend of original songs and instrumentals, old-time heritage and bluegrass power. Reischman developed an ear for bluegrass at the age of 16 through watching shows such as the Beverly Hillbillies and the Andy Griffith show. “There wasn’t anything like that sound around at the time,” says Reischman, who is originally from California. He borrowed a mandolin from a family friend and taught himself how to play. Reischman says he felt that in a sea of guitar players, being able to play the mandolin and his flare for bluegrass set him apart from other musicians. While he has been playing for 40 years, John Reischman and the Jaybirds have been together for about 13. “We are kind of a gateway band for bluegrass,” says Reischman, noting some of the subtle differences from the traditional style. These differences, however, might only be

CAN CHIROPRACTIC HELP ME?

We are often asked: “What’s the best way of finding out whether a Dr. of Chiropractic can help my problem?” We believe the answer can be found in a complete consultation and examination.

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

n John Reischman and the Jaybirds are familiar faces in the South Shuswap. The group will perform on-stage at Carlin Hall Monday, March 25. noticed by an avid bluegrass listener, he says. Their sound derives from their unique influences, which include old-time music, a precursor to bluegrass. “In old-time, the roots to Celtic and blues are more obvious,” says Reischman. “There is more Irish and Scottish fiddling and Southern gospel and things like that.” The band’s sound has a bit more of a folkie edge to it, although Reischman does assure there are a number of songs that are a little more ‘hard core’ as well as a number that are more mellowed down. “I think we appeal to some folks who are maybe not bluegrass

diehards but like all kinds of music,” says Reischman, assuring their show is suitable for all ages. While the band bears his name, Reischman says it is not him and his backup band. Instead, the group takes great care in making sure everyone has their place, each having their own song where they take the lead on-stage. This is something else that gives them a little bit of an edge on other bluegrass bands, as some songs might have that washboard feel, others are headed up by some toe-tappin’ fiddle playing. John Reischman and the Jay Birds also play a large number of original songs, something

that makes them stand out among the many bluegrass cover bands. Stellar Jays, a signature song that appeared on their last CD, has received rave reviews. It was described as being a trademark of their old-time-infused bluegrass sound that respects tradition while advancing the music. The song was also nominated for two 2007 Canadian Folk Music Awards. The Vancouverbased band has toured around the area before and has become a well-known face at the Nimble Fingers Festival in Sorrento, where they would often teach lessons or simply stop in to participate themselves.

ACCEPTING NEW PATIENTS

The group will be attending a festival in the days heading up to their Carlin show and will not be taking a break after that. Soon after their performance ends the band will be packing up their instruments to head down south for a tour in California. John Reischman and The Jaybirds will be taking the stage at the Carlin Hall Monday, March 25. The doors will open at 6:45 p.m. with the performance set to begin at 7:30. Tickets are available in advance at Acorn Music on Lakeshore Drive in Salmon Arm for $20. Tickets will also be available at the door for $25 each.

We are pleased and excited to announce that Dr. Marcia Baile, Naturopathic Physician, has joined our practice. Dr. Baile brings 12 years of experience with her with a focus on nutrition and lifestyle modification. We are now booking appointments for Dr. Baile. Please call to arrange yours!

Club open to more members By Cavelle Layes

MARKET NEWS STAff

Probus Club of Copper Island has celebrated a major landmark, officially become one of the more than 200 Probus clubs in Canada. The club’s members have joined with more than 27,000 members across the country and are now inviting men, women and couples to join. The club is hoping to meet more people from the North Shuswap, Chase, Sorrento, Blind Bay, White Lake, Eagle Bay and Wild Rose Bay areas. The club provides

local residents with the opportunity to come together, meet new people, listen to guest speakers and share in a lively conversation. Club organizers also hope to offer something for everyone no matter the interest, and invite participants to form sub-groups according to their shared interests. The club tries to bring in a wide range of guest speakers to meet a wide range of interests. Past speakers have included Jim Cooperman, president of the Shuswap Environmental Action Society. In October, the club

brought in two representatives from the BC Securities Commission to speak about investment fraud. This month, Steve Corrie provided the group with background on The Voice of the Shuswap, the new community radio station out of Salmon Arm. The March 14 meeting will feature guest, Kathryn Vennard, a lawyer with Brooke Jackson Downs in Salmon Arm. Vennard will be speaking on wills, and the necessity to review and update them. The guest speakers are not the only reason

to join the club; however, other activities the club has been involved with are a potluck lunch and tour of an organic garlic farm, summer potluck lunch at a private beach park, a wine tour of local wineries and Crannog Ales, dinner theatre at Quaaout Lodge, Christmas luncheon and skits with Peter Blacklock, snowshoeing and cross country skiing. The club’s meetings are held on the second Thursday of the month at Toad Hall, behind Toby’s Restaurant, in Sorrento. The coffee is on by 9:30 a.m. for social

interaction, and the meetings will start at 10 a.m. The intention of the club is to have an interesting selection of guest speakers with a variety of topics for everyone. Attend the next meeting to see if the Probus Club is something you would be interested in joining.

Shuswap Children’s Association and the Salmar Community Association recently cohosted a special encore presentation of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time at the Salmar Classic. The film brilliantly depicted the life and challenges of an individual with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Half of the proceeds from the wellattended event were donated to the Shuswap Autism Support Group. “We are so grateful to the Salmar Community Association for their support and to all the community members who attended this amazing film,” said Tanja Carlson, Autism Support Co-ordinator with Shuswap Children’s Association. “The funds will help us to continue to support families with an autism diagnosis by hosting workshops, bringing in guest speakers, and to purchase reference materials to educate, empower, and inspire. Current statistics reveal that 1 in 88 children will be diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder and these numbers continue to rise.” The Autism Support Group meets the first Thursday of each month at the Public Health Unit and everyone is welcome.

Jerry Flynn, a retired Canadian military wireless communications expert with more than 22 years of experience in the field of Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR), will speak at First United Church on Okanagan Avenue Tuesday, Feb. 26, from 7 to 9 p.m. Have you ever wondered if your exposure to the radiation from the wireless devices in your life might be harmful? Such devices include your cell phone, new wireless Hydro smart meters, wireless Internet connections, cordless phones, microwave ovens, and even your wireless baby monitor – they all emit radiation. Flynn will share scientific evidence that strongly suggests precautions need to be taken to protect humans against the multi-layers of electromagnetic radiation EMR. Flynn served withNATO forces as an expert on the vulnerabilities and dangers of wireless radio systems. He claims wireless technology is very vulnerable to eavesdropping and even cyberattack. Flynn will appear in Salmon Arm on Feb. 26. Admission is by donation with a suggested minimum amount of $5 to cover expenses, which include a DVD and handouts for attendees.

Trial set for September Five weeks have been set aside in BC Supreme Court in Kamloops for the trial of a man accused in a fatal boat crash on Shuswap Lake in July 2010. Leon Reinbrecht, 50, from Celista, was the operator of a speedboat that collided head-on with a houseboat on the 2010 Canada Day weekend, leaving the 18-foot Campion Runabout fully embedded inside the houseboat’s cabin. Killed in the crash was houseboat owner and driver, 53-yearold Kenneth William (Kenny) Brown of Chase. Eight people were injured. Reinbrecht faces charges of criminal negligence causing death and criminal negligence causing bodily harm. Rather than going through a preliminary inquiry, which was initially scheduled for January of this year, the Crown opted for a rarely used route – proceeding by the more streamlined direct indictment. Jury selection is set for Sept. 3 of this year, while the trial is scheduled to begin on Sept. 9.

In praise of pits, nuts and seeds

A Package of Seeds by Aileen Fisher They can’t see their pictures, They can’t read the label – The seeds in a package – So how are they able To know if they’re daisies Or green for the table? Do you remember when the first seedless watermelons and grapes came out in the grocery store or the first pit-less peach? Well that’s bananas! While some no doubt hailed them as a great thing because they were so much easier to eat without the inconvenience of dealing with the ‘useless’ pits or seeds, others were sounding the alarm bells. Since when is it a good idea when industry produces a ‘new food’ that can’t, or we can’t, reproduce itself? If that’s OK with us, then maybe it’s our minds that have just plain gone to seed…. Seeds, pits and nuts are a miraculous and true wonder in nature’s world and should never, ever be taken for

“Purchasing heirloom seeds give life to our future and prevents the loss of genetic seed diversity, so our organic seed and plant growers play a crucial role.” If you want to have a truly organic garden, you will need to buy organic seeds, even if you never use pesticides, commercial fertilizers or weed killer in your garden. Organic seeds have a better heritage, are proven to be stronger and healthier and do not carry any harmful pesticides or insecticides built in to their tiny cells like genetically modified seeds do. They produce plants that are more naturally disease and pest resistant and produce foods with increased nutritional value and taste.

Purchasing heirloom seeds gives life to our future and prevents the loss of genetic seed diversity, so our organic seed and plant growers play a crucial role in the health and well-being of both people and our planet. And remember, the only materials the seeds have to use are the nutrients it contains at its initial stage – and after that, just earth and sunlight. The soil the seeds are sown and grown in makes all the dif-

ference for a strong and healthy plant, so provide a nutrient and mineral-rich soil to plant and grow them in. So come out and support the Seedy Saturday on March 2 at the L.A. Fortune School in Enderby from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. This is always a good opportunity to meet some great seed suppliers, farmers and other vendors and to listen to some excellent presentations on a number of topics

And that’s just the basics. Wow! A seed produces a living version of an extremely complex shape with complex systems. They have a superior form of what can only be described as an ‘intelligence.” But how did all that information get there in the first place? Now that’s a tough nut to crack. And here’s another tidbit to chew on when contemplating your seed sources this year.

Try to imagine how many countless varieties, shapes and sizes there are in the world and how those plants can germinate from something so small and seemingly lifeless. Let’s give these mini-mights an appreciative think for a moment. These three wonders are extremely well-organized life forms that contain the individual energetic blueprint and coded information for every possible characteristic of the plant, throughout it’s lifespan. They contain the comprehensive ‘knowledge’ of the shape, thickness and length of each stem, branch and leaf and the number of leaves; the thickness, texture and colour of the skin or bark; the diameter and number of channels through which nutrients and water flow (circulatory system); the overall proportions and colour(s) of the plant; it’s defence mechanisms against any threats; it’s communications systems to other plants; what symbiotic relationships it will have with other plants and insects; the structure and function of the roots for assimilation of soil nutrients; and, whether or not it will bear fruit or flowers, and if so, what it’s taste, aroma, shape and colour they will be and how many.

Stomp plans for SLEEK, YOUTHFUL & STREAMLINED Come Test Sicamous site Drive One Today! The All New By Lachlan Labere

market news staff

Hogs will go to the dogs if the Summer Stomp committee is successful at making Sicamous their new home. Sicamous council has directed district staff to begin the process of looking at the legalities and necessary arrangements (such as land use options for campsites, security and policing) to accommodate the motorcycle rally. This is based on the 2013 Summer Stomp motorcycle rally being held at the municipal dog park, just off Sicamous-Solsqua Road. Mayor Darrell Trouton says a decision on whether or not to approve the event won’t be made until after a staff report is received. The Stomp Committee, however, has already announced they have “a great new location” for the event, to be held July 18 to 21. “The site has been talked about with council’s unanimous support… I don’t think we’re jumping the gun,” says Hammer. Hammer told council during a presentation last week that the Stomp committee is committed to Sicamous. He said the organization is already working with the local chamber to run the event in synch with the Sicamous Burnout event. Hammer assured the Stomp is not looking to take over the burnout, but to help turn a one-day event into a weekend event. This would include vendors and activities downtown from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, with the Stomp’s music festival running at the dog park from 8 p.m. to the “wee hours of the morning.” To do this, the Stomp will be asking for noise bylaw extensions. “I think it would be a great partnership,” says Hammer, adding the Stomp is looking at Sicamous in 2013 as a one-year trial. “But our goal is to have this event move to Sicamous on a permanent basis.” Coun. Fred Busch asked why the event isn’t back in Silver Creek, where it was held for 16 years. Hammer said this stems from an agreement with the Columbia Shuswap Regional District to shut the music down at midnight last year – an agreement the Stomp couldn’t live up to. “We said yes, we’ll sign off on the agreement,” said Hammer. “Midnight rolls around, and there’s no way we can shut the music down and send everybody out on the roads, out on Silver Creek, to try and make last call….”

Imperial papacy will continue Global VIews Gwynne Dyer It’s the Roman Catholic Church, not the Republican Catholic Church or the People’s Revolutionary Socialist Democratic Catholic Church. Its rigid hierarchy and its centralizing instincts are due almost entirely to the fact it became the state religion of the Roman Empire more than 1,600 years ago. The pope is still, in essence, the emperor. How Roman are the traditions and instincts of the church that Pope Benedict XVI has led for the past seven years? Well, one of his titles is “pontifex maximus,” usually translated from the Latin as “supreme pontiff.” That was the title of the high priest of the old Roman (pagan) state religion under the Republic. When Rome became an empire, the emperors took it over, starting with Augustus. Somewhere in the fifth or sixth century — the timing is not clear — the title was transferred to the Christian bishop of Rome, who had become the head of

the new state religion of Christianity. This is not to say popes are secretly pagans: they are monotheists to the core. (The answer to the rhetorical question, “Is the Pope a Catholic?” is “Yes”.) But, they are Roman Catholics and the religion they lead is still run like an empire. Very occasionally some maverick pope tries to change the model, but the system always wins in the end. Benedict XVI was the emperor of a shrinking domain, for the Catholic Church has been shedding adherents not only in the West, where it is everywhere in steep decline, but also in the Latin American, African and Asian countries where it once held unchallenged sway. While secularism is the enemy that steals the faithful in the West, evangelical forms of Christianity are seducing Catholic believers away in what we used to call the Third World. There are many who blame this hemorrhage on the outgoing pope (the first time anybody has ever used that phrase about a pope, for they normally die in office, like the emperors did). Benedict was chosen by his colleagues because they believed he would fight off fundamental change — and he performed his duty well.

250-832-7192

His resignation for health reasons is an innovation, but it is the first of which he has been guilty. He held the line on abortion (a sin in almost all circumstances), homosexuality (likewise, unless the person remains entirely celibate), married or female priests (definitely not), re-marriage after divorce (ditto) and contraception (under no circumstances, though he later said HIV-positive prostitutes might be justified in asking their clients to use condoms). It may seem weird that all of these major controversies are about sexuality or gender, but that’s not actually the Catholic Church’s fault. It’s equally inflexible in defending the doctrines of the Virgin Birth, the Triune God and Papal Infallibility. It’s just that far more Catholics care about doctrines that affect their daily lives than about theological dogmas that have little practical effect. What the Catholic Church is really fighting is modernization, which it sees as moral decline. Perhaps it is right (though I don’t think so), but it is losing the battle. Yet Benedict XVI and the Church hierarchy are condemned to fight this battle until the last ditch because they believe, probably correctly, that full modernization would make

them irrelevant. So, there’s no point in going on about how Pope Benedict XVI (or will we go back to calling him Cardinal Ratzinger after the end of this month?) failed to modernize the Church. He wasn’t hired to do that. The only pope who did try was John XXIII and he died 50 years ago. Every pope since then (including the charismatic, but deeply conservative, John Paul II) has seen his task as being to stem the tide of change and restore the old order. The job was largely complete even before Benedict became pope seven years ago. His job has merely been to ensure there is no backsliding into liberalism, relativism and other modernist errors — and he has achieved that by ensuring almost the entire College of Cardinals (the men who choose the next pope) are reliably conservative and orthodox. The college had already been stuffed with conservative cardinals by his predecessor, John Paul II, so even there he really didn’t have to do much except steer the same steady course. Not a single one of the cardinals who are seen as “papabili” (men who might be elected as pope) could be described as liberal or reformist. There will be a new

pope, but nothing is going to change. The hemorrhage will continue. -Gwynne Dyer’s columns appear in publications in 45 countries.

David Shepherd and Travis Price, both in Grade 12, heard about a Grade 9 student at their school who had been bullied and threatened for wearing a pink polo shirt on his first day of school. They decided they should do something about it and bought 50 pink shirts and tank tops to wear to school the next day. They also went online to round up support for their anti-bullying cause, which they dubbed a “sea of pink.” It worked. The next day, dozens of students were outfitted with the discount shirts, but even better, hundreds of students showed up wearing

bullying is, and that it happens in many forms – verbally, socially, physically and online (cyber bullying), says Tuckwell. “By wearing pink, people show they’re making that commitment, to not let bullying happen,” she says. Tuckwell and others emphasize that the pink shirt is secondary to raising awareness about bullying and getting people involved. B.C. is no stranger to tragedy related to bullying. From Surrey’s 14-year-old Hamed Nastoh, who jumped off the Patullo Bridge and killed himself after leaving a note behind blaming the constant bullying he endured at school, to Mission’s Dawn-Marie Wesley, 14, who committed suicide by hanging herself after relentless bullying, to Port Coquitlam’s Amanda Todd, 15, who killed herself after posting a video on YouTube talking about her experiences with cyber bullying, there are countless told and untold stories that remain horrific. The provincial government has taken steps to address bullying in recent years,

Cyber-Bullying Seen as a Significant Concern among BC Residents 23% of Parents With Teens Say Their Teen Has Been CyberBullied (As Have 8% of Adults) ccording to a recent Insights West-6S Marketing study on social media behaviors and attitudes of 504 online BC adults, 48% are ”very concerned” about cyber-bullying in society overall, and a further 41% are “somewhat concerned.” Of the 18% of adults in BC with teens in the home, an alarming 23% of parents say their teens have been victims of cyber-bullying.

More than one in three (38%) either strongly support (17%) or somewhat support (21%) the privatization of liquor distribution in BC. However, a further 40% also either strongly oppose (24%) or somewhat oppose (16%) the change. Almost one in four (23%) are unsure on their position towards this issue. Although the incidence of cyber-bullying has hit alarming numbers of 23%, it still pales in comparison to the fact that the majority (58%) of parents say their teens have been victims of “traditional” bullying. Results of the poll show that BC residents believe a collective effort from individuals, educators, law enforcement and government should play a role in countering cyber-bullying. The vast majority of adults believe that it is parents who should be taking a primary role in countering cyber-bullying, and 60% of adults believe teens should take on a primary role— an attitude that is shared among both parents of teens and nonparents. Nearly half of BC residents (48%) feel that individuals should take the primary role. A smaller number of adults feel that the public school system (40%), police (32%), and media (30%)

should take a primary role, but a large minority believe these organizations should play secondary roles (35%, 35%, and 27%, respectively). The relatively new social phenomenon of cyber-bullying is driven by the relatively large number of British Columbians engaged in social media activities. Currently, 46% of adults use Facebook on a daily basis, a figure that increases to 64% among 18-34 year olds, and 50% of 35-44 year olds (daily Facebook use is reported by 29% of the 55+ age group). Daily Facebook use is also disproportionately higher among BC adults with teens living in the household (58%) vs. those without teens (43%). On average, 11% of British Columbians use Facebook weekly, 11% monthly, and 27% use it less often than that (about 5% don’t know). Women continue to dominate the Facebook space, with 53% being daily users, vs. 38% of men. Daily usage of Twitter is currently 16% on average — but dramatically higher among the 18-34 year old group (37%), dropping off to 15% among 3554’s, and only 4% among 55+. Other social media platforms (such as Instagram, LinkedIn, Flickr, etc.) have increased to

Golfing used to be something that Inky Whalley only did on vacation, but after moving to Chase she became more involved in the sport. “I’ve always liked the outdoors, and my husband and I used to take the clubs on vacation. Then we moved to Chase and got involved,” said Whalley. “Plus, I live by the golf course.” Whalley first entered the B.C. Seniors games held in Kelowna. She has now also participated in the ones that were held in Prince George, Chilliwack, Surrey and Castlegar. And there is a reason she keeps going back. “The senior games is about meeting new people and having a good time,” said Whalley. She also Don’t became involved as the zone eight golf co-ordinator four years ago, meaning that while participating in the games herself, she also makes posters, phones those who participated the previous year and books the golf courses if needed. Each zone in B.C. can send two men and two women per age category per division, and no more than 12 men and 12 women can compete per division. Within the golf

there are four divisions: Women Division “A” for golfers who have an index of 0-24.3; Women Division “B” for golfers who have an index of 24.4-40.4; men’s division “A” for golfers with an index of 0-20.0 and men’s division “B” for golfers with an index of 20.1-36.4. Although there are limitations to the number of people who can participate in golf, the co-ordinators do try to give everyone the chance to compete. photo Contributed “We try not to refuse n Golf is one of many events that athletes 55 years and older can compete anyone,” said Whalley. in during the BC Seniors Games to be held in Kamloops this summer.

Bid made to keep Ashton Creek School By Richard Rolke BLaCk Press

There’s uncertainty over a community asset in Ashton Creek. Jackie Pearase, regional district director, urged the North Okanagan-Shuswap School District to consider community needs and not just sell Ashton Creek Elementary to the highest bidder. “They didn’t ask me any questions. It’s hard to read what they’re going to do,” she said. “I’m not sure if they have already made up their minds or if they are keeping an open mind. I hope it is the latter.” The school was closed last year

because of low enrolment and the school district has deemed it surplus, paving the way for it to be sold. Pearase hopes the school district won’t just be attracted to the highest offer but will consider the role the building has played in Ashton Creek for decades. Pearase would like to see the site sold to Ashton Creek Fellowship, which currently leases the building for church services. “Community members utilize the gymnasium for winter sports and the local cadet corps will soon hold its weekly meetings in the building,” she said. She added that renovations by the church have made the building more appealing and there

could be after-school programs, sports, a community garden and possibly health services. The school district is currently in a consultation phase with residents and prospective buyers about properties it may sell. “When the process wraps up, we will have a clearer idea of what the public thinks of selling public space,” said Chris Coers, trustee for Ashton Creek. “The board has a responsibility to consider fair market value but that’s only what the seller is willing to accept and what the buyer is willing to offer.” A decision on selling the property could be made by trustees in March.

Putting the shake on salt

Bueckert, Cooper & Co. My mission is to provide reliable, price competitive, full scope professional accounting and tax preparation. I take complexity and worry out of your income tax filing.

Living WELL Canadians have developed a taste for salt. Sodium is a nutrient found in table salt and many other foods and most of us eat more than double the amount we need each day. Too much sodium puts stress on our hearts and can put our health at risk. February is Heart Month – a great time to learn about how reducing the amount of sodium we eat can help keep our “tickers” healthy. Adults only need about 1,500 mg of sodium each day for good health. This small amount of sodium helps to regulate body fluids and blood pressure and it also keeps our muscles and nerves running smoothly. Unfortunately, most of us consume around 3,400 mg which can lead to high blood pressure – a major risk factor for stroke, heart disease and kidney disease. Some sodium occurs naturally in foods, but most is added for flavour and preservation. All types of salt, including sea salt, kosher salts and other gourmet salts, contain similar amounts of sodium. Over 75 per cent of the sodium we eat comes from processed foods such as cheeses, deli meats, sauces and soups, packaged and ready-to-eat foods, pizza, fast foods and restaurant meals. Sodium is also found in lesser amounts in many foods that don’t taste salty such as

bread, baked goods, and breakfast cereals. Take these simple steps to reduce the amount of sodium that you eat: • Create meals at home from fresh unprocessed foods. • Eat fewer packaged, ready-to-eat and take-out foods. • Use the Nutrition Facts table to compare products and choose products that are lower in sodium. • Add little or no salt to food when cooking and remove the salt shaker from your table. Easy access to low sodium foods can help us all make better choices. Use your voice and your buying power to send a message to the food industry to offer lower sodium products: • Call or email your favourite food companies and request lower sodium products. • Let your money do the talking. Use Nutrition Facts tables to compare products and purchase products that are lowest in sodium. • Choose to eat at restaurants and food outlets that provide nutrition information such as those that participate in the informed dining program. Choose foods with less sodium. Eating less sodium can help you and your family stay healthy and feel your best. Now that’s something to take to heart. - The author, Ta r a Stark, is a community nutritionist with Interior Health.

Input needed on four-laning projects MarKEt nEWs staff

Locals are starting to feel skeptical the TransCanada Highway will be fully four laned between Kamloops and Chase. The growing doubt stems from two public information meetings relating to Premier Christy Clark’s proposal to four lane the highway from Kamloops to the Alberta border over the next 10 years at an anticipated cost of $650 million. Over the course of these meetings, it was made clear the premier’s proposal isn’t as advertised. “People are thinking that [$650 million] is going to completely develop the entire area and that’s just not the case,” explained Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure regional manager Mike Lorimer in a Shuswap Market News interview. This, Lorimer continued, is part of the reason why the government is hosting the public meetings. They want to know which portions of the highway residents would like to see upgraded. “We want to talk to people who drive the highway, who live the highway, because it is

Many who attended the latter meeting were initially of the belief that the entire stretch of highway between Chase and Kamloops would one day be expanded to four lanes straight through. The reality, they learned, is that only patches of four-laning may occur over the next decade. Lorimer says plans are already in the works for seven projects in total. Two of these will occur between Kamloops and Chase. The first, located between Monte Creek and Pritchard, has already begun. The second project will stretch from Pritchard to Hoffman’s Bluff, and is set to roll out in two phases.

Lorimer says the total cost of these projects is expected be around $80 million, adding they are awaiting finalization. “The engineering and design work is done, and we have got the funding in place with the federal government,” he says. There were issues, he said, with a number of houses along the project route where the province hasn’t been able to come to a settlement on the property. While the negotiations themselves are confidential, Lorimer says they are working on agreements that will make both parties happy. The first phase of the Pritchard to Hoffman’s project is expected to begin this summer, and take about 14 to 15 months to complete through two construction seasons. The sec-

ond phase will be a two-year project. Lorimer ensures the projects will go ahead as planned, explaining they make up a component of the $650 million program. The problem is that the majority of the money has not yet been allocated, which means the remaining portions of Highway 1 between Chase and Kamloops do not have anything scheduled to take place. This goes back to why public input is necessary for the ministry. “Especially for folks who are driving fairly often, if there is a particular section that concerns them, we want to hear about,” says Lorimer. “We are looking for comments on what is going to impact people most in their daily lives. “Would they rather have a four lane quite a ways from town to al-

Public gets look at upgrades

MARKET NEWS STAff

A heightened interest in tourism has sparked conversation about the expansion and upgrade of Roderick HaigBrown Provincial Park. Architectual and environmental planner Raymond Visser detailed some of the preliminary plans being made for the park during a workshop held at the Little Shuswap Lake Indian Band offices on Feb. 17. Located along the Adams River, the park is known world over for the annual sockeye salmon run. This event attracted tens of thousands of visitors in 2010, and even more are expected to be attending in 2014, the next peak year for the salmon run. The information presented at the workshop

was the culmination of public participation over the past few months. The planned upgrades to the area are intended to accommodate present and future tourist demand. Several Adams River Salmon Society members who attended the workshops are hopeful some of the plans can be implemented in time for the major run in 2014.

Some of the upgrades being looked into are increased facilities such as flush toilets, a formal reception area and adequate parking to handle the 155,000 visitors who attended the run in September and October of 2010. Planner Monty Downs of Downs Project Management says Roderick Haig-Brown can be considered one of the five major parks in British Columbia,

and is deserving of an upgrade. Darlene McBain, Adams River Salmon Society president says the plans must now move ahead to involve more of the community. “This is a worldclass park, we invite participants to join us and contribute to what will be a major event and venue in British Columbia’s Interior,” says McBain.

Broncos earn advance in playoffs By Cavelle Layes

MARKET NEWS STAff

A game that started off looking like the Broncos might be in some trouble, took a jaw-dropping turn for the better, granting the team a 7-2 victory and catapulting them into the third round of the playoffs. Cody Hodges received some well-deserved pats on the back after banking six of the seven goals scored during the Feb. 16 game in West Kelowna, and nabbing an assist on the remainder. This brings him up to 56 shots scored throughout the year, a big accomplishment for the

16-year-old. The first period against the West Kelowna Warriors was a little rough for the Broncos, who had difficulty connecting passes and following through plays. While both teams remained scoreless throughout the first frame, the Warriors were certainly dominating and the Broncos left the ice looking tired and frustrated. By the time the puck dropped in the second, however, it was as though a whole new team had taken the ice. The Broncos began putting pressure on the Warriors and, at 12:42, Hodges banked the

first goal of the game, with Cole Zimmerman on the assist. A second goal soon followed with Hodges netting another at 10:26, assisted by Jonas Rivas and Jordan Passmore. This only fired the Broncos up more, leading them to bring the score up to 3-0 with 9:30 remaining on the clock, once again at the hands of Hodges who followed through with the fourth shot of the game just 25 seconds later. Assists were by Zimmerman and Scott Stevens on the third goal, and Michael Sam providing a helping hand on the fourth. Jordan Passmore potted the fifth goal of

the game with 6:40 remaining in the second, assisted by Hodges and Stevens. The Warriors finally took the chance to retaliate with 6:15 remaining on the clock, getting them on the scoreboard at 5-1 for the Broncos. With 2:03 remaining, Hodges landed another shot with the help of Zimmerman and Passmore, before the Warriors got their second and last goal of the game 20 seconds later. The Broncos left the ice looking much more confident with a four goal lead at 6-2. At 16:01 in the third, an on-fire Hodges landed his sixth goal

of the game, bringing home a 7-2 win against the West Kelowna Warriors. Broncos goalie Levi Chwartacki also played an outstanding game, stopping 31 of the 33 shots thrown at him, making some great saves in the process. This win means the second sweep of the playoffs for the Broncos, and advances them into round three against Merritt. “We’re excited at the opportunity to play in the finals,” says coach Dan Stevens. “We’ve battled hard through the entire playoff and the hard work is paying off.”

No playoff season ahead for Chase Heat The Chase Heat Junior Hockey Club completed its second season in the Kootenay International Hockey League with a trio of games this past week. On Wednesday, Feb. 13, the local side played host to the Sicamous Eagles. The visitors took a 3-1 victory home to the houseboat capital. Goal scorer for Chase was Michael Keyes, with him and Jake Mattes getting two of the three stars. Mattes faced 50 shots, stopping 47 – another busy night for the team’s most valuable player. Saturday the 16th saw the same two teams in action in Sicamous. The Eagles were vying for top seed in the division and skated to a 5 – 2 win. Heat goals were by Marc MacKenzie and Connor Venne. Mattes faced 31 shots between the pipes. Sunday afternoon, on Feb 17, the Heat were in Armstrong to finish out the 52-game season versus the North Okanagan Knights. The Armstrong crew captured first place in the division over the Eagles

by one point with a 5–1 victory over Chase. Mattes faced 55 shots, with the Heat’s lone goal coming off the stick of Levi Chamberlain, the team’s most sportsmanlike player. So no playoff battles for the Heat who are in their second year as a franchise in the KIJHL. The top scorer award went to Shelby Kostyshen with 19 goals, 23 assists for 42 points, good for 54th in the league, along with 44 minutes in the sin bin. The very young team fought through more than 52 games and came out with 11 wins, 35 losses, three ties and three overtime losses for 28 points, 17th in the 20 team league. A slight improvement over the first year, but an improvement all the same. The Heat Jr. Hockey Society and Chase Heat Hockey Club thanks everyone in Chase and area for the excellent support and encouragement, as the team continues to build a successful franchise for years to come. Early-bird season ticket packages will be on sale in May 2013.

Cougars prey on pets, livestock in the region and all of a sudden we’re getting complaints,” he says, noting the lack of complaints was actually more unusual. He says four dogs in the Grandview Bench area were recently injured, two were killed outright and one had to be euthanized because of its injuries. “I know those numbers are relatively accurate,” he says. “There was one human

Cougars have kept local conservation officers busy, but not more than normal according to Brent Smith of the Vernon office. He says cougar complaints increased with the first big snowfall in valley bottoms in December. “We had very few cat complaints in many years

injury when a man broke up a fight between his dog and a cougar in early January but he just got a couple of scratches.” Smith says on Feb. 9, a dog was stolen from a porch near the highway at Grindrod and a 100-pound tom cougar was spotted the next morning and shot. The following day, the same hunter who spotted the

male cougar the day before, shot and killed another 100lb male who chased a dog up a tree. No other complaints had been reported by Feb. 15 and Smith stresses the cougars were acting in a normal fashion and were in no way acting aggressively toward humans. “Cougars killing dogs is natural because they kill and

eat coyotes all the time,” he says. “But in our determination, we have had a series of cougars whose actions were not acceptable within health and safety guidelines. When you’re killing horses, something has to be done to mitigate livestock losses.” Smith says there was one livestock kill in Falkland, one in Vernon, two in Grindrod and one each in Ashton

Creek and Armstrong. “They were acting normally but unacceptably because they were attacking livestock,” he reemphasized. “As a result, all six cats are dead.” The chances of humancougar encounters are low says Smith, who advises people to visit www.env.gov. bc.ca and check out the information on cougars.

FRANK HALVER “BUD” ROKOSH Frank Halver “Bud” Rokosh passed away in Bastion Place, at 6:00 pm, February 12, 2013. He fought gracefully for 43 days, after being diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumour on New Year’s Day. As he lived, he chose to die- naturally-declining any invasive medical interventions. He is survived by his wife of almost 56 years, Alvina “Ellie,” his son Randy, daughter Jeanne, brother Roy, sister Yvonne “Bonnie,” and many extended family members and friends. He was predeceased by his Mother, Alma, and his father Frank. Bud was born in Revelstoke, BC on December 29th, 1936. He grew up in Solsqua BC. He met his wife Ellie in Sicamous, where they married and spent their lives. Bud was a pioneer in the Sicamous area and contributed to many of the businesses, buildings and events you see today. In his younger years, he was a voluntary loans officer for the Credit Union. Back then, currency was different, and Bud knew in order to support his friends and community members, he needed to be creative. He was known to take cows for loan guarantees. While the Managers were not always pleased with his approach, his team had the lowest loan default rate in the Valley. Bud also had a great love for music. He sang and played saxophone in countless bands in almost every hall in the Okanagan Valley. He and his wife built their first family home “on the hill” where they raised their children. He loved baseball and spent his young adulthood playing first base for the Eagles. He and his wife passed their love of baseball onto their children, with him coaching his son in Little League, while his wife coached their daughter in softball. He also loved the Shuswap Lake. He and his family could be found at Marble Point most Sundays in the summer. Bud was an avid lover of nature. If you ever went walking with him, you were bound to learn something you had never thought of, about how Mother Nature worked. Following his retirement, he became an avid fan of golfing and Tim Hortons. He loved his coffee. But his visits to Tim’s or the golf course were more about his conversations with friends, and his opportunity to visit both people he did and didn’t know. He will be forever remembered for his gentle and kind nature, his love of laughing, his kindness and compassion, and his tradition of Miller Time on Friday nights. At Bud’s request, he asked that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the Canadian Cancer Society. At the request of the family, arrangements for a memorial will be planned for the spring, with further details announced at a later date. Online condolences can be sent through Bud’s obituary at www.bowersfuneralservice.com Funeral arrangements are in the care of Bowers Funeral service, Salmon Arm, BC

CELEBRATION OF HANNEKE CREMERS’ LIFE On February 7th, 2013 Hanneke Cremers passed away very peacefully at the hospital in Nanaimo surrounded by family. Johanna Cornelia Catsburg was born in Rotterdam, the Netherlands on December 29, 1927.  Hanneke lived a full life and is survived by her four children, seven grandchildren and five great grandchildren.  Hanneke lived in the Netherlands, Tunisia, and Algeria. Hanneke immigrated with her husband Ernest Cremers and children to Canada in 1969. After living in Vancouver, British Columbia until 1972, Hanneke and family moved to Silver Creek where Hanneke resided until the passing of her life. Hanneke survived the Second World War, two major forest fires, numerous physical challenges, and yet maintained her dignity, sense of humour and zest for life. Hanneke was a devout Christian woman and was fiercely protective of her family.  Hanneke was involved in the Christian community in Salmon Arm, and made a difference in people’s lives on a consistent basis.  Hanneke’s faith and devotion to her Lord and Saviour was an integral part of her daily life and this showed in everything that she accomplished.  Hanneke will be tremendously missed for her zest for life, the adventures of her daily walk with her saviour, the loyalty she gave her family and the “down to earth” humour that she possessed.  May you rest in peace mom, and know that “It is well with all our souls”. Amen. Email condolences may be sent through Hanneke’s obituary at www.bowersfuneralservice. com. Funeral arrangements are in the care of Bowers Funeral Service, Salmon Arm, B.C.

GRACE ROSAMOND WILSON (DOBSON) September 7, 1914 - February 12, 2013 Died with dignity and grace. Born in Lethbridge, AB, she lived with her close family: her father, Howard; her mother, Grace; younger brother, Lionel; and younger sister, Pat, in southern Alberta. The family finally settled in Edmonton where Rosamond went to school and later went to Normal School to become a teacher. She later completed her degree and taught during the Depression and WW 2. Rose will be remembered best as half of a wonderful life partnership with her beloved “Gordie”, Gordon McKeown Wilson, her husband of almost 66 years who died in the spring of 2007; and as a blessed and blessed mother of five children, 12 grandchildren and 5 great grandchildren. Rosamond was clear what she felt was important in her life: being a loving wife, raising her children, doing church work, gardening, and teaching keep fit. When asked what her defining attributes were she said, “determined, caring, ambitious, and curious”. She had a brilliant mind and was engaged in this “wonderful” world and charmed life until she left. Rosamond will be fondly remembered by her Wilson-Dobson clan, and her CGIT girls - her “Honeybees” - as well as many United Church organizations, and she will also be remembered by her many friends in Grande Prairie, in Sidney, and in Salmon Arm where she and Gordon lived. The family would like to thank the wonderful staff at Hillside Village Home and Lakeshore Manor for their attention to the needs of their “Rose.” Donations may be made to St. Paul’s United Church in Grande Prairie, AB. Arrangements entrusted to FISCHER’S FUNERAL SERVICES & CREMATORIUM LTD., Salmon Arm, BC, V1E 2Y9. EMAIL condolences and share memories through Rosamond’s obituary at www. fischersfuneralservices.com. RICHARD, JEAN DANIEL “JOHN” December 21, 1941 – February 3, 2013 It is with great regret that we announce the passing of John Richard. John immigrated to Canada from Switzerland as a young boy, and had called the Salmon Arm area his home since then.  An active and loved member of the Shuswap Amateur Radio club for many years, John was always there to lend his support to club activities.  Many would recognize John as a passenger in the RCMP cruiser during the Salmon Arm parades in recent years. Blinded as an adolescent due to ocular disease, John navigated his life by refusing to become a slave to his blindness.  He frequently told others that we the sighted were more blind than he was. In many ways one could agree with him.  A very self reliant man, John would chop his own wood, stoke his own fires and unaided navigate from his home to perform his errands.   In later years friends and the local Handi-Dart would routinely take him on his weekly outings to his favourite establishments.  An outing that he truly enjoyed.   Predeceased by his mother, John often shared his adoration for her in his life to his friends.    He had a special affection and appreciation for the tellers at Downtown Askews.  They regularly greeted him with kind words and big hugs.  He was also a member of the Salmon Arm Seniors centre. Many reading this will recognize this kind soul, as he touched so many in his life.  John passed away in the Shuswap Lake General Hospital after a brief illness.  Those that knew John would like to thank the staff at the hospital for their kindness to him in his last days. John never married, but had many friends that loved him dearly.  He left his mark on many in the community and will be missed.  John believed that his true reward would be in heaven,  We that knew John, believe fully that God has embraced him in his love. Arrangements entrusted to FISCHER’S FUNERAL SERVICES & CREMATORIUM LTD., Salmon Arm, (250) 833-1129. EMAIL condolences and share memories through John’s obituary at www. fischersfuneralservices.com.

DOREEN FELL (nee DALLOW) A kind, generous and loving lady, Doreen Fell, passed quietly in Salmon Arm on February 13, 2013 with her children beside her. Doreen was born on August 14, 1932 in Blackpool, England and was the last living child of her parents, Ethel (Stephens) Dallow and Douglas Dallow. Both of Doreen’s parents had passed by the time she was nine years old and she was raised by various relatives in England before deciding to venture off to Canada in April of 1953 to pursue a new life in a new country. Shortly after arriving in Canada, Doreen met and married Harold Fell in Fort St. John, B.C. and together they raised three children while running a lumber business there. They retired to their much loved Salmon Arm in 1981, where Doreen became involved in numerous community activities, charities and artistic endeavours. She volunteered at the Interfaith Thrift Store, helped yearly at the fall fair, made articles of clothing for Grandmothers to Grandmothers, greeted worshipers weekly at the Untied Church and helped wherever she could with a number of different groups and causes over the years. Doreen was an active member of the quilters guild and has left behind numerous quilted treasures for her family and friends to admire and cherish for years to come. In the past few years, Doreen enjoyed taking part in her osteofit classes, where she developed even more new friendships. Doreen also had a passion for growing things and rarely, if ever, could you visit her home and not find at least one of her many orchids in bloom. Doreen was a humble and giving person who had the gift of making her friends, family and acquaintances feel richer for having known her. She leaves behind her children, Mike, Craig and Heather (Laurier) Blanchette; her grandchildren, Brett (Laura) and Chelsea Blanchette and Alesha Fell and Karlene (Rodney) Purvis; four great grandchildren; daughter-in-law, Shirley; life-long friend and ‘fellow Brit’, Dorothy Aalhus and many, many other friends and extended family. In addition to her parents, Doreen was predeceased by her husband Harold in 2006 and her brother Gerald in 1991. Doreen’s older brother, Douglas, died in infancy in 1932. The family wishes to express their sincere appreciation to the doctors and nursing staff of the Shuswap Lake General Hospital who took such good care of Doreen in her final days. We would also like to extend our gratitude to the many friends who came to visit her during that time. We are truly humbled at the profound difference our mother, grandmother and great grandmother made in the lives of so many. A memorial service took place in Salmon Arm at the First United Church, Salmon Arm on Monday, February 18, 2013. Doreen’s ashes are interred in the Mount Ida Cemetery beside those of her husband, Harold. Doreen has asked that anyone wishing to make a donation in her memory please do so to the Shuswap Hospital Foundation, Box 265, Salmon Arm, BC, V1E 4N3. (www. shuswaphospitalfoundation.org). Online condolences can be sent through Doreen’s obituary at www.bowersfuneralservice.com Arrangements are in the care of Bowers Funeral Home, Salmon Arm.

Ella was born on Sept 12, 2003 in Edmonton, a little ball of black fur when I first brought her home. A better dog she could not have been. She was a wonderful family dog and she became a Saint Johns Therapy Dog when she was two, visiting in Bastian Place and Pioneer Lodge. She loved her visits with the seniors but really found her niche through the S.P.C.A., She travelled to many schools and libraries. She helped teach the children how to meet dogs they didn’t know and showed them how kindness counts. She would show them her tricks and play with them. She did this for five years. On February 6/2013 I asked the veterinarian to help me put Ella out of her suffering from her cancer. She leaves me to mourn, Shirley Robillard, many children, and all the Robillard clan.

Photo, video contest for students Aspiring photographers or videographers take note. Snapping pictures or taking video could be the ticket to healthier schools in the Shuswap. School District #83 is hosting a contest asking students for their ideas on healthy living. Open to all middle and high school students, the Health is Wealth contest asks for students

to produce video or photo presentations showing what health means to them and what is healthy about their school and what is not. School winners receive $500 to put towards a health project for their school, and will have a chance to compete for the district-wide prize of an additional $400.

All entries must be submitted by March 8 and include the school, names of participants and their contact information in the credits. More information is available on the school district website at www.sd83.bc.ca, on Facebook at healthiswealthcontest or by emailing Laura Paiement, the healthy schools co-ordinator at lpaiemen@sd83.bc.ca.

BASIC INSTALLATION AND NO EQUIPMENT TO BUY!1

New B.C. Services card available British Columbians can now replace their CareCard with the new BC Services Card. “Effective immediately, the old CareCard will be replaced by the BC Services Card, a highly secure form of identification,” said Health Minister Margaret MacDiarmid. “This new card will be a secure piece of photo identification with many anti-fraud and security features including secure design, an expiry date and enhanced features which will help to protect citizens’ personal information.” Most adults will need to re-enrol in the Medical Services Plan over the next five years. The easiest way for British Columbians to enrol is to do so when renewing their driver’s licence and opt for the combined card that includes both a driver’s licence and BC Services Card. People who do not drive can still enrol at the nearest

location where driver’s licences are issued. The current CareCard was introduced in 1989 and has not been significantly updated over the last 20 years. The new BC Services Card takes advantage of significant advances in technology, to provide a secure piece of photo identification with enhanced features to protect citizens’ personal information. The new card features a photograph of the beneficiary, secure design and an expiry date. “We have been engaging with the information and privacy commissioner on this program for more than two years and I am pleased that she agrees from a privacy and security point of view we are ready to offer the BC Services Card to citizens,” said Minister of Citizens’ Services and Open Government Ben Stewart. “We are happy to

work with government on issuing the new BC Services Card to British Columbians,” said ICBC interim president and CEO Mark Blucher. “The added convenience of getting a combined BC Services Card and driver’s licence will be a welcome feature for many of our customers. Just come into an ICBC driver licensing office when it’s time to renew your licence, and we will issue the new card.” Once a person enrols, they will be mailed a new BC Services Card, and will need to re-enrol and get a new card every five years. Children and certain groups of adults, such as the elderly or those in residential care or extended hospital care – for whom renewed enrolment would be impractical or present a hardship – will be exempt from re-enrolling or managed through special arrangements.
