A polite but determined group of Little Shuswap Lake Indian Band members took over the band office at 9 a.m. Monday, March 18 citing a violation of their rights. Rocky Tomma says the office will remain closed until a meeting can be held with Chief Felix Arnouse and band council members Brian Finlay and Tess Tomma, who is currently out-of-town. Neither Arnouse, nor the band council members responded to requests for comment before press time. “As a Little Shuswap Lake Indian band member, I can no longer sit idle and continue to be oppressed by the leadership and the rules, regulations and policies that are currently in place through this dictatorship,” asserts protest organizer Rocky Tomma in a written statement. Quoting a section of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, Tomma says the absence of general band meetings and lack of financial updates on the band or corporate endeavours, or on current and future developments, violates his rights, and those of other band members living off the reserve. Tomma also takes issue with the Feb. 22 election in which Chief Felix Arnouse was re-elected, maintaining no provision was made for mail-in ballots. He calls for a re-election in order to “promote peace and harmony within the community and provide equal rights to all on- and off-reserve members.” Chase RCMP Const. Rob Claypool, the local First Nations liaison, has visited the band office several times a day since the protest began. “There was no violent takeover; it was very peaceful and they did allow payroll staff to stay for the day so they could still look after business,” he says, noting there are usually six or seven people supporting Tomma’s protest. “There is a willingness on both parts to solve this.”

Playoff run over for SilverBacks By Lachlan Labere

MArKet News stAFF

The Vees vexed the ‘Backs once again, knocking the gorillas out of playoff action. Salmon Arm suffered a 5-1 loss to the Penticton Vees in Game 4 of the BCHL conference semifinal, held Tuesday night at the Shaw Centre. Salmon Arm’s single came late in the third frame by Ryan Schwalbe off of Brayden Sherbinin. The third period wasn’t necessarily Salmon Arm’s strongest, but it was when the two teams appeared most evenly matched. The first period was a different story. Penticton lit up the board

at 8:45 with a goal by John Siemer. In the second half of the frame, a five-minute penalty for kneeing to Salmon Arm’s Alex Gillies gave the Vees an opening they didn’t waste, with back-to-back powerplay goals potted by Ryan Gropp and Sean Flannagan. A couple minutes later, Wade Murphy added another marker for the Vees, giving them a discouraging (in the eyes of attending home-team fans) 4-0 lead going into the second period. The Vees outshot the SilverBacks 14-5 in the second period, but only Jedd Soleway found a hole in Salmon Arm netminder Adam Clark’s defence as his

shot squeezed past the goalie. Penticton goalie Chad Katunar, who finished with 25 saves, could only be beat when a centring pass redirected off of Schwalbe’s leg. The SilverBacks credit the Vees for their skilled forwards, who lived up to their billing, the d-men, who blocked shots well throughout the series, and Katunar who “got hot at the right time.” “In the BCHL Playoff bracket, this series goes down as sweep for the Vees, but astute SilverBacks fans know that Salmon Arm played some real strong hockey in Games 2&3, and that a bounce or

two could have easily changed the complexion of the series, but it just wasn’t mean to be,” states the SilverBacks’ website. -With files from the Penticton Western News.

ShuSwap Sicamous councillor runs for BC Conservatives in Prince George By Lachlan Labere

MARKET NEWS STAff

Terry Rysz has been racking up the kilometres as of late, driving between Sicamous and Prince George, where he’s running as the B.C. Conservative Party candidate for Prince George-Mackenzie. “I’ve lived in Northern B.C. for close to 30 years, in the Prince George and Vanderhoof areas,” says Rysz. “When those ridings came available, they were kind of looking for a candidate who would fit that role. And I was that person, because I’m very familiar with the dynamics of Prince George and the surrounding area, and the effect that Prince George has on the surrounding area.” Rysz received the nod to represent the Conservatives in the northern riding earlier this month, and he made a formal announcement to council last week. “If I happen to get elected, and I’m hoping to, I’m going to work very hard, because nothing would please me more that sitting across the hall from Greg Kyllo and debating the issues in the legislature. And then after that going for a beer,” said Rysz. Rysz will continue serving on

council until he takes a leave of absence. Kyllo, who is representing the BC Liberals in the Shuswap riding, has been given leave for the period of April 18 to May 15. If either councillor should be elected, the district would be facing a byelection. Rysz made it known months ago that he was interested in running for the Conservatives. The riding he was eyeing was a little closer to home – Columbia River-Revelstoke. However, when another candidate entered the race in that riding, it was mutually agreed that Rysz would back down. During the election of the Conservative’s Shuswap candidate, Tom Birch, Rysz made a speech in which he asserted the importance of having a party member in the running in every riding. One thing led to another, and Rysz wound up with the job for Prince George-Mackenzie. Rysz says that while Sicamous is his home, he’s very comfortable serving up North. But he also recognizes the riding is currently a hotbed of controversial topics, from the Northern Gateway project to the BC Liberal scandal involving current Prince George-Mackenzie MLA Pat Bell, and his behind-the-scenes

involvement with the Wood Innovation Design Centre. “I’ve accepted to take on quite a juggernaut, to be quite honest,” laughs Rysz. “But I’ve just spent a week up in Prince George and put our team together so we’re going for it.” If he isn’t elected, Rysz will continue to serve Sicamous through council. If elected, however, Rysz says he will still be working for Sicamous. He says he will be looking at opportunities to link the north and the south. “Sicamous will definitely be in my sights to maybe put together a program that will help enhance Sicamous’ economic situation,” says Rysz. “I’ve been giving it a lot of thought. For example, the houseboat industry in Northern B.C. – there’s Stuart Lake, Babine Lake, Williston Lake… and the tourist industry in the North definitely is a big issue as well as it is here.” Up against new candidates for the Liberals and the NDP, Rysz is optimistic about his chances – more so than he was going up against Columbia River-Revelstoke MLA Norm Macdonald. But if he loses, Rysz says it’s not a losing situation as he’ll remain on Sicamous council working for the community.

City plans to install stop signs on Marine Park Drive, Lakeshore Drive By Lachlan Labere

MARKET NEWS STAff

A new three-way intersection will be established at the Marine Park Drive railway crossing in response to safety concerns raised by Transport Canada. City council approved the intersection as recommended in a report by engineering and public works director Rob Niewenhuizen. This will result in the placement of three new stop signs

where Marine Park Drive connects to Lakeshore – one leaving Marine Park, another to the northeast side of Marine Park Drive for traffic coming into town, and the third directly across from Marine Park Drive for traffic heading northeast up Lakeshore. The three-way stop is one of four recommendations from a traffic impact analysis conducted by the city in response to a May 3, 2012 letter of notice from Trans-

port Canada railway safety inspector Dennis Maskell. In the letter, Maskell raises a number of safety concerns witnessed during a March 22, 2012 inspection of the intersection, including an “ever-present possibility of a vehicle being hit by one or more trains while trying to engage this T-intersection without the right of way,” adding there is “virtually no road storage capacity after the railway tracks for vehicles trying to access

Lakeshore Drive.” Niewenhuizen said the only requirement of Transport Canada was to make the crossing safer, but this was a challenge nonetheless. He reiterated Maskell’s concern, stating the biggest issue is the limited distance between the tracks and the stop bar on Lakeshore and Marine Park Drive. “The reason why this will work is because on a threeway stop, there’s time,” said Niewenhuizen. “When peo-

ple stop, there’s enough time to clear the intersection, and because Lakeshore is now being stopped, Marine Park will have the same amount of time to clear as the other vehicles being stopped. “So if there is a trailer parked across the tracks, they will have enough time to clear out before the arms will activate from the rail crossing.” Niewenhuizen said this was the least intrusive of the four options. It is also one

of the least expensive, with mandatory improvements running at $3,000, and another $21,000 in recommended improvements. “It will, unfortunately, stop traffic on Lakeshore coming into town,” said Niewenhuizen. Included in the recommended improvements are a speed reader sign and pedestrian signage. The installation of the new stop signs is scheduled to take place at the end of May.

NDP must be more than a lesser evil If BC NDP leaders hope to capitalize on the BC Liberals’ missteps, they need to step up their game and prove to voters there are good reasons to vote for their party. The notion that a vote for one is a vote against the other is simply not good enough reason – by itself – to return to power a party that has had its own shortcomings in the past in the transparency department. Pundits and pollsters might, indeed, be right that a backlash against Liberals’ mismanagement of their current mandate will result in a win for the NDP. But it should be realized that voters are in the throes of a crisis of confidence with the political process itself. They have not simply lost faith in the BC Liberals – they have lost faith in politicians of all stripes. But the NDP’s reluctance – to this date – to follow up such gains by presenting a detailed platform of its own is more than a little troubling. The NDP must stand for something, not just against something. Presenting a convincing vision is what it will take for NDP leader Adrian Dix to ultimately put to rest a horrible past blunder in which he falsified the date of a memo to provide an alibi for former premier Glen Clark, who was feeling the heat in a probe into alleged corruption. Dix has apologized and acknowledged he “owns” his past mistakes. He has also refused to take the bait of campaigning by the Liberals, who are determined to prove that the 14 years since the scandal is not too long for the short memory of the electorate. In contrast to the stumbles of others, the NDP has said it will provide a platform of promises that can be kept. So far, we are still waiting. –Black Press

OpiniOn

Before you hand over your money There is something about gliding across the surface of a lake in a long, thin, sleek kayak that is different from any other form of watercraft. Kayaks are quieter, faster, and, take it from me, a lot easier on the back. Now I’m certainly not suggesting that I’m any sort of authority on kayaking, but, as it was explained to me when I first started looking around to buy my first kayak, there are a few things you should know before you hand over your hard-earned money. First, you need to figure out what kind of paddling you want to do (long distance, short day trips, just paddling around having fun, etc.) and then, determine what kind of water you are most like to do it on (the ocean, lakes, rivers, fast water, still waters, etc.). You should also ask yourself if can you lift a kayak by yourself? Where will you be storing your kayak when not in use or over the off-seaon months? What kind of money are you willing to spend? Remember that the kayak is only the initial investment. You will need a paddle and a

The GreaT OuTDOOrs James Murray lifejacket, as well as a water pump, flotation device and rope – all of which are required by law. Kayaks come in two basic design types: ones where you sit inside and others where you sit on top. Both are equally suited to a freshwater paddling. Ocean paddling is another thing altogether. Today’s modern lightweight, plastic composite kayaks are almost indestructible. They are well- suited to short day trips and recreational paddling, and, are certainly much easier to pack over rough terrain or carry down to the water’s edge. They also tend to be a lot less expensive than the kevlar and Fiberglass tour-

ing kayaks that look so nice when you see them on somebody’s roof rack in the mall parking lot. Ocean kayaks are highly specialized, longer, harder to handle on dry land and generally much more expensive. They require a skill level that befits the risks of paddling out on the ocean where there are things like tides and ocean squalls to take into consideration. Because of their narrow design, storage in/on a kayak is a precious commodity. And, although there are a whole whack of accessories that a person can buy to rig out a kayak, I like to keep things simple. Having said that, a paddle holder or lanyard will keep your paddle from drifting out of reach should you let it slip from your grip. The less there is to get in the way, the better as far as I’m concerned. If you only plan to carry a minimum of gear, most reputable kayak dealers will probably talk you into buying a kayak of at least 12 to 14 feet in length. If you are a larger persons or need to carry a lot of gear and require extra carrying capac-

ity, you are better to purchase a kayak of 16 feet or more. In my humble opinion, it is easier to stay dry in a sit-in style kayak as apposed to the sit-on-top style that is quickly becoming all the rage. When choosing a kayak, base your choice on comfort, how much gear you plan to bring along and what kind of water you will most often be paddling. Then go to kayak shop that specializes in kayaking, as opposed to a sports shop that may handle kayaks but is staffed by salespeople who do not necessarily know much about kayaking or paddling. When you think you may have found the kayak of your choice, take your shoes off and sit in/on it right there in the store. Move around in it – imagine you are on the water. If I were to offer one piece of advice, it would be to never choose a kayak that you have not paddled in the water. After all, you would never buy a pair of shoes without trying them on, so ask to try out/rent/borrow a kayak before you even consider handing over your hard-earned money.

View point

Ulterior motive in column? I was disgusted at Tom Fletcher’s vitriolic diatribe against David Suzuki and his documentary, Shattered Ground, aired recently on CBC TV’s The Nature of Things. (Shuswap Market News March 8). Describing the documentary as “Suzuki’s latest Scud missile of misinformation,” Fletcher ridicules the people in the documentary who express concerns about the hydraulic fracking ongoing in their areas and its impact on their health, water, and quality of life. Hydraulic fracking is the oil and gas in-

dustry’s latest technology for developing less accessible deposits of methane gas and light oil. Industry tells us this technology has been around for 60 years, but this is false. Only in the past decade have new technologies emerged enabling access to gas and oil trapped deep underground between layers of shale rock. The technology has expanded so quickly that there has been insufficient time to do the scientific study on its environmental and health impacts, and on the impact of inevitable accidents. In numerous areas

where hydraulic fracking is ongoing, groundwater has become contaminated with methane, and air polluted by benzene and other chemicals used in fracking. People are becoming ill. As a result, France and Vermont State have banned fracking, while New York State and Quebec Province have enacted moratoriums. Other concerns about fracking are: 1) It causes chronic leaks of methane, a potent climate change driver. Many scientists believe that rapid shale gas development will exacerbate global cli-

mate change and could tip the world into climate chaos. 2) It uses massive amounts of water and what is recovered is so polluted that it can never be restored to the hydrological cycle. As climate change advances, water will become increasingly scarce. Given these legitimate concerns, one has to wonder at the reason for Fletcher’s vicious attack on David Suzuki. Could it be that the oil and gas industry is worried about the growing public opposition to fracking?

Songster series opens tonight “absolute destruction” of the environment. Kenyon says he was surprised to discover his song had been posted on YouTube with pictures where logging has been protested. Kenyon’s partner on-stage and off, Gillian Cran, is a born-inthe-Shuswap musician, who plays cello in the Salmon Arm string orchestra and teamsters large horses at Caravan Farm Theatre. She also plays flute and sax, and has a brand new granddaughter named Charlie. Betty Johnson is known for her expressive voice and accomplished guitar playing. Her performances of acoustic jazz and blues are heightened by her songwriting abilities. Johnson is an alumnus of the George Ryga Centre where she was greatly encouraged by legends Bill Henderson and Roy Forbes to “get her work out there and don’t hold back – people want to hear your music.” She has shared the stage with Maria Dunn, Mae Moore, Ken Hamm, David Essig and rock band Chillwack. There are two words Johnson uses to describe songwriting – agonizing and amazing. Saving My Heart is her latest CD, which features Neil Fraser on guitar and Bill Lockie on bass. Herald Nix has long

Years before people started talking about “alt country” and “Americana,” he was writing and playing music that drew on very deep roots. Nix’s guitar playing style is so personal it is almost impossible to categorize. Using fingers and slide together, he evokes bottleneck blues and pedal-steel styles. Like his songs, his music is simultaneously ancient and immediate. “We are hoping to build on the enthusiasm and excitement from last year, and make this year’s series even more

Four artists will share their considerable talent for writing and performing tonight at Shuswap Theatre. Well-known musicians Linz Kenyon and Gillian Cran are the hosts, who will welcome Betty Johnson and Herald Nix to the stage in the first of three spring Songwriter Showcases. Kenyon is a songwriter/playwright/performer who, as well as writing “rant and rave” songs about the state of the natural world, is a playwright for Caravan Farm Theatre. The creator of Caravan Farm Theatre’s Cowboy King and IOU Land, Kenyon is currently writing Black Horses with Caravan Farm Theatre’s former artistic director Estelle Shook, and is also working on Caravan Farm Theatre’s winter show for 2014. In terms of his opinion and what he has to say in song, Kenyon looks back to a song he wrote 30 years ago, one he will perform at the songwriters’ showcase. Clearcut Trees is Kenyon’s lament to forest practices of the time, when ugly clear-cut blocks were the order of the day and garbage and oil cans were merely tossed aside or buried at the site. As a former logger and the son of one, he is not opposed to forestry, just wasteful practices that cause

Hearing Aids are just that… A

ccording to Statistics Canada, more than one million adults across the country report having a hearing-related disability. This is 50%  greater than the number of people  reporting troubles with their eyesight (StatsCan, 2002). Hearing is very different from eyesight it’s a disability that sneaks up on people. Hearing loss is less obvious than visual impairment. When looking at a book, it is apparent when the words become blurry on the page - you can’t fake it. Hearing loss is often subtle,

easy to deny, or blame on others. Deterioration occurs gradually over time until words begin to sound muffled. When hearing deteriorates, it often affects the high frequencies, making words sound unclear or “mumbled”. Often the speaker is blamed for not speaking clearly, when the hearing impairment is the culprit. Hearing Aids can be a great help but it’s important to understand what they can and can’t do for you. Today’s hearing aids are primarily digital technology. The average hearing aid life span is approximately

5-6 years, and the cost will vary depending on the type of technology inside the hearing instrument. It’s very important to note that hearing aids do not return hearing to normal, and should only be considered an aid. When looking at the big picture of hearing loss, aids are only ¼ of the picture, the other ¾ is the responsibility of the hearing aid user. The successful user understands the commitment it takes to achieve optimal success. Hearing aids function better in quiet environments. They do not eliminate background noise; how-

ever some technologies make noise more tolerable and make speech more easily understood in noise. The more sophisticated the technology, the greater the improvement in more demanding or unfavorable listening conditions. Communication will always be better when conversation is face-to-face and in close proximity. It is important to wear your hearing aids regularly. The more you wear your aids, the easier it is for the brain to understand and interpret the speech sounds being presented. When presented

with difficult listening environments additional communication strategies can enhance the hearing aid’s performance. Take the opportunity to discuss these strategies with your hearing aid clinician. Hearing Aids are just that - aids to help you with your hearing. Remember, the more realistic your expectations, the more successful you will be as a hearing aid user.

Taking a look at the litter layer Gaia GardeninG Margo Westaway

In the world of soil science, nature’s gardens are classified into 3 layers: the ‘L’ litter layer, (aka detritus, litterfall or duff) is the top, undecayed layer of dead plant material (my mulch), such as leaves, bark, needles as well as animal poop, skin and carcasses, feathers and whatever else happens to land on the surface; the ‘F’ layer, the partially decomposed organic matter (my compost) and the ‘H’ layer, which is the fully decomposed organic matter, (aka stabilized dark soil, humus, or basically – nothing much left to eat). The litter layer is broken down or decomposed into humus by the micro critters (bacteria, fungus) and macro critters (worms and insects) as well as by light and weather conditions. The surface layers can vary in thickness, decomposition rate, nutrient content and diversity and this biomass provides a continuous energy source for these micro and macro organisms to break down organic matter into the

soil food web as well as making food more bio-available for plants to take up. These layers also capture and store moisture, prevent water loss via evaporation, prevent erosion due to runoff from harsh rains and provide habitat for a variety of soil organisms. Rich humus acts as a giant sponge and storage tank, holding the moisture in the ground. The soil food web in living, healthy soil is a highly sophisticated, biologically active, interconnected and interactive environment of untold billions of busy soil organisms that are continually eating, digesting, multiplying, gas converting, pooping, tunnelling, etc. These critters are the fungal and bacterial microbes, worms, insects and other microscopic organisms, all playing a critical role in the soil health and structure and dependent on each other for survival. In another words – this is an ecosystem and a habitat that these soil dwellers have created for themselves and we don’t what to muck with it by digging, flipping and tilling it all up. It might look nice and tidy and weedfree afterwards, but you’ve just collapsed or destroyed this entire world. Over and underwatering, using toxic fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides will also collapse this ecosystem.

So leave it alone, just like nature does. The mulches being used today can be broken down into 3 basic categories: the good, the bad and the ugly. Gardeners, landscapers and farmers cover their gardens with all kinds of materials such as stones, gravel, lava rock, bark mulch, sawdust, wood and bark chips, straw, hay, grass clippings, manures, crop residues, pine needles and cones, leaves and if they’re lucky, seaweed. Just about all of these mulches lack the nutrient diversity (that’s key) needed for healthy soil conditions. Some, like grass and sawdust, can seriously reduce the amount of water from penetrating the surface due to matting, and bark mulch can actually repel water. Aggregates can cause heat stress and weeding problems and others create an imbalance in the nutrient content of

your soil. Landscape fabrics starve out the soil food web, reduce water penetration and good luck trying to untangle a plant from it or weed from it. In order to reap the same benefits as nature’s gardens, mulch your garden and landscape beds with a two to four inch layer of a nutrient-rich variety of organic matter. This will create the right conditions for a healthy ecosystem, which has its’ own natural mechanisms for combating pest and disease problems. Wait until the frost has left the ground in the spring before spreading it on your beds and then once again in the fall. What I do is spread a layer of rich, nutrientdiverse compost over the beds, then top it off with a layer of mulch consisting of a good nitrogen/carbon mix of fresh grass clippings, shredded leaves and year-old wood chips

Things to know about motor oil

W

hen it comes to taking care of their vehicles, many motorists prefer to be overly cautious. While that’s not necessarily a bad thing, there are times when being too cautious can unnecessarily cost you money. Motor oil, and when to change that oil, has long been a point of contention. Many drivers grew up being told that motor oil should be changed every 4,828 kms. However, that myth has been debunked for many of today’s vehicles, which should come with suggested intervals between oil changes. According to Edmunds.com, in 2010 the average interval for oil changes was 12,553 kms. In addition to changing a car’s motor oil less frequently, there are other things drivers should know about motor oil. • Oil does not necessarily need to be changed before a long trip. Taking a trip? While it’s good to have your car examined before embarking, if the recommended oil change interval is not up, then you do not need to preemptively change your oil. Such a change is likely unnecessary and will not improve the performance of your vehicle during the trip. • Black oil does not necessitate a change. Conventional wisdom once suggested if the oil on the dipstick is black then it needs to be changed. But nowadays automotive professionals are noting that black oil is doing its job and different additives might be changing the oil’s color, which means the oil doesn’t need to

be changed. • You can use petroleum-based oil after using synthetic. Another longstanding myth regarding motor oil was that once you use a synthetic motor oil instead of a petroleum-based oil you have to continue using synthetic oil, which is often more expensive than more traditional motor oil, in order to avoid harming the vehicle. However, automotive professionals have noted that these two types of oils are now often blended, meaning switching back and forth from one to the other is not likely to cause any damage to your vehicle. Just be sure to use motor oil that meets the standards set forth in your vehicle’s owner’s manual. • Consider an earlier oil change after buying a new vehicle. Sometimes a new vehicle will need an oil change after its first 4,828 kms. However, this does not mean your vehicle will need one every 4,828 kms. According to Blackstone Laboratories, who study motor oil, oil samples taken from engines during their initial 4,828 kms of driving had elevated metal levels from the camshafts and pistons. These elevated levels will not necessarily be harmful, but some auto manufacturers recommend a shorter initial interval just to be safe. • Consult your owner’s manual to determine if it’s best to change your oil after the initial 4,828 kms or to let it go until the recommended interval. ■

College gears up for electric cars on campus Interest is growing now that Okanagan College is about to become a hub for sustainable travel throughout the valley with the upcoming installation of electric car charging stations at each of its campuses. A total of 10 charging stations are being installed between now and March 31, with four at the

Kelowna campus, and two at each of the campuses in Penticton, Vernon and Salmon Arm, said Okanagan College energy specialist Rob St. Onge. The charging stations will be available to the public at the same rate as visitor parking fees. Okanagan College was one of the first colleges in B.C. to sign

up for the initiative, which is part of the B.C. Ministry of Environment’s $2.7-million Community Charging Infrastructure (CCI) Fund. Through the program, the province pays up to $4,000 per station with the college investing the remainder of the cost – at approximately $1,000 per unit.

Air cadets take silver at drill team event By Barb Brouwer

MArKet neWS StAff

With their first drill team in three years, Shuswap 222 Squadron air cadets won second place in the Okanagan Wing competition held March 9 at Camp Vernon. The 11-member team performed a compulsory routine under voice command, and a silent, memorized routine of

more creative maneuvers. “This is a building year,” said the team’s supervising officer, Capt. Justin Englot. “We haven’t had a team in three years, so the cadets had a steep learning curve.” Team Captain, warrant officer Jackson Calvert added that nine of the 11 cadets are expected to be with the team again next year.

The squadron welcomes new members between the ages of 12

and 18. Parade night is Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. at South Canoe school.

From the hill Colin Mayes Your government in Ottawa brought in the Federal Accountability Act to ensure that politicians and public office holders are accountable and transparent with tax dollars. The Auditor Don’t General was given more power to follow tax dollars administered by the public service, Crown corporations and other levels of government, such as First Nations. A majority of those receiving tax dollars have proven to respect the terms of accountability. This past year, our government has focused on accountability to funding programs and government services. In an economy of labour shortages, the Minister of Human Resources put together a plan that would link

A policy to ensure those collecting EI are aware of employment opportunities was implemented as part of the eligibility review. This has helped link people with jobs. One of the outcomes of this strategy is a saving of more than $500 million in fraudulent EI Claims. This abuse of EI is not hurting pay for 90butdays government, rather fellow workers and employers that legitimately pay into EI.

Bocce popular at Seniors Games It’s a game that started in Italy, but has now become popular recreation all over the world And, Canada is no exception as bocce is played at summer gatherings and sporting events alike. Bocce is a game played on a soil or asphalt court in which individuals or teams throw their balls, trying to get them as close to the jack as possible. The jack is a smaller ball that is thrown by the team. “Bocce is just like bowling” said Judy Zmaeff, B.C. Senior Games zone eight bocce representative.

“It’s very similar to bowling, but you don’t knock over pins — you throw towards the jack.”  Zmaeff used to be a dart player, but became interested in bocce after she received a shoulder injury.   This year was the first for Zmaeff in bocce competition and, though she doesn’t expect any medals at the 2013 B.C. Senior Games in Kamloops, she does think it will be fun.   “And, if I can do it, than so can you,” she said. If you are interested in bocce or would

Penttila introduced the current royalty – Miss Chase Faith Kurucz, Miss Chase Princess and Congeniality, Ashley Arnouse and, the two Chase representatives, Danielle Andrade and Alara Lorimer. Each candidate was then presented with their sponsor banner: Brenna White – Miss Legion Ladies Auxiliary Br. 107, presented by Anne Lamoureux; Darci Phillip – Miss Neskonlith Indian Band, presented by Judy Deneault; Savan-

nah August – Miss Rotary, presented by Lori Berrigan; Kiana Arnouse — Miss Adams Lake Indian Band, presented by Donna Jules; Shyleigh Thiessen — Miss People’s Food and Drug, presented by Jenny McLeod; Naomi O’Dine — Miss Lions Club, presented by Alice Shelest; Kate Milner — Miss Safety Mart Foods, presented by Linda Kynoch. Each girl practised her public-speaking skills by presenting 10 facts about themselves. Next they modelled a uniquely designed apron which they had decorated themselves. Auctioneer Rich Weins helped raise funds for this program by auctioning off each apron to the highest bidder. Family and friends raised the roof by bidding on their favourite apron. These funds will be used to pay for the new shoes and ‘tea outfits’ that will include jackets, skirts and blouses.

n This year’s candidates for the Miss Chase Excellence competition were introduced to the Chase community and given their sponsor banners at a successful pasta dinner and auction on March 2. Unique to the community is the Corporate Challenge apron auction which pitted the Chase Fire/Rescue, Safety Mart Foods, Elegance by Tralee, Adams Lake Indian Band, Legion Ladies Auxiliary, Miss Chase Excellence, Chase Victim Services, Darion Kurucz and the Rotary Club against each other. Once the bidding ceased, the Rotary Club, having put up the most money, retained their bragging rights and won the coveted

demos or racing. The Shuswap Market News regrets the error and any inconvenience it may have caused.

The date of this year’s tournament is Sunday, May 5, starting at 2 p.m. and the team has added a number of exciting additions this year. One of these includes a car prize valued at $20,000 for the hole-in-one challenge, thanks to a generous donation from Smith Chev Cadillac in Kamloops. Team Chase is encouraging anyone who wishes to take part in this year’s event to register early as it fills up very quickly. Registration forms are available at the Sunshore golf course. “We are always looking for new members for Team Chase,” says Diana Endean, team member. “So if you have some time and would like to be a part of a group of awesome ladies whose passion is raising money for cancer research, please come to our next meeting.” The group will be meeting on March 27 at 4 p.m. in the Chase Curling Club.

they were able to raise over $25,000 through various fundraising activities, including a golf tournament, hot dog sales, line dancing performances and the first annual fundraising fashion show. The group supported the Weekend to End Breast Cancer event for two years and then began supporting the CIBC Run For The Cure for the past six years. During that time they have won the Family & Friends award four different times for most money raised in that division. Team Chase was able to accomplish this feat thanks, in large part, to two major fundraising activities. The first being their annual Pink Ribbon Classic Golf tournament held each May, as well as the fashion show which will be held later this fall. Team Chase has also received tremendous support from various clubs, organizations and individuals in the community who help them reach the fundraising goals they set each year.

It is time, once again, to dust off your golf clubs in support of breast cancer research and this year the event has a little added significance. Each year Team Chase hosts their annual Pink Ribbon Classic Tournament as a way to raise money for their chosen breast cancer charity. This year the Pink Ribbon Classic Golf Tournament is not only going to be supporting breast cancer research, but the team has decided to dedicate the event to someone very special to them all. This year’s event is being held in the memory of Sandy McDonald, a member of Team Chase, who passed away last fall. Team Chase was originally started by a very enthusiastic group of ladies from Chase in March of 2004 to prepare for the first annual Weekend to End Breast Cancer walk in Vancouver. The group had six walkers and 18 support volunteers who attended the event. Together

Heinrich says she believes the worstcase scenario would be they get the permit, but are told they cannot have their machines working on the lake bottom. This limitation would require them to

use barges to support machinery and complete other work. Not only would this potentially increase the overall cost of the wharf, but could also cause significant delays as construction would then need to be postponed until the water levels came up to

allow for the barges. While the village has put the majority of the project on hold for the time being, the ministry did allow for some minor work to continue. This includes work being done to the boat launch and shoreline clean-up.

The busy sounds of construction have been put on hold, as the Village Chase awaits permit approval for the new wharf. A Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations official advised the village of the missing permit on March 4. Joni Heinrich, chief administrative officer, says village officials hope the matter will be resolved within the next two weeks. Heinrich says the village will get approval, but it could come with certain limits and conditions included. The ministry will determine whether or not they believe con-

Volunteering with Interior Health’s Lifeline program is relatively simple and a brief task that can yield life-saving results. The program is offered through the health authority to provide emergency response home monitoring for individuals recovering from surgery, people with chronic health problems, or for seniors wish to continue living safely and independently. “They wear a little button, and if they have any kind of trouble, they just press the button and it tells a little communicator to dial into our response centre where there’s staff on duty 24-hours a day,” says IH Lifeline program manager David Kelcey. “It comes up on a computer screen at our monitoring station and it has all the information about the individual, including the names of some neighbours or friends or family – we call them responders – who can come and check on them.” Where the volunteers come in is with the installation of the technology. “The volunteers actually install the equipment in the home. It’s not complicated,” says Kelcey. “They hook it up and show the individual how to operate the equipment.” Volunteers are currently needed in Sicamous and Salmon Arm. There is a fee for Lifeline, but there is sponsorship funding available for individuals experiencing financial hardship. For information, call Kelcey at 1-800-994-8414, or email david.kelcey@ interiorhealth.ca.

A dozen teams vie for Launch-a-Preneur prizes By Martha Wickett

MARKET NEWS STAff

Budding entrepreneurs are at it again in Salmon Arm, well along the way in the 2013 Shuswap Launcha-Preneur competition. Much like television’s Dragon’s Den program where people pitch business ideas to a few wealthy Canadian businesspeople – but a kinder, gentler version, Launch-a-Preneur assists entrepreneurs in planning for a successful launch of their business. The support and training then culminates in a final competition night, April 26, when teams compete for thousands of dollars in prizes and in-kind donations designed to assist with business start-up in the Shuswap. Seventeen teams began the process in January with 12 teams remaining. They are being supported by business mentors, Okanagan Enactus – formerly Students in Free Enterprise, Okanagan College professors, Community Futures/ Accelerate Shuswap and the Salmon Arm Economic Development Society. Workshops the competitors participate in include topics such as finance and selling. The process and all of the tools involved help an entrepreneur to clarify what their product is, who their customers are and if the plan they’ve created is viable. “The neat thing about this one is a real spirt of co-operation,” says Carol McGillivray, business support coordinator for Salmon Arm Economic Development. “There are all

these folks with different ideas for businesses…They’re saying to each other ‘hey, have your thought of this…’ It’s really kind of neat to see the support for

each other.” Come Friday, April 26, when all of the learning and preparation culminates in the competition night, teams present an “el-

evator pitch” to a panel of judges. A selection of teams is then invited to move on to the final round where they provide a more detailed presenta-

tion and answer questions from the judges and audience. The finalists are competing for a number of awards including Green Initiative, Public

Choice and first, second and third awards. Along with the awards are thousands of dollars in prizes including marketing packages, website development

packages, seed capital, business consulting time and accounting and legal fees. Information on the competition is available at launch-a-preneur.ca.

At the public hearing those persons who believe their interest in property is affected by the proposed bylaw will have a reasonable opportunity to be heard or to present written submissions respecting matters contained in the bylaw. The Board of the Regional District will not consider any verbal or written representations or submissions after the public hearing.

Amending Development Area 3 by changing the minimum parcel size created by subdivision to 1 hectare and adding All Terrain Vehicle and Snowmobile Sales, Rental and Repair, and Retail Store, as permitted uses. Bylaw No. 800-18 also proposes two new definitions that would only apply to the Comprehensive Development Zone 1 as follows: COMMUNITY SEWER SYSTEM means a system of works owned, operated and maintained by the Regional District, Strata Corporation, Improvement District, Utility

Bylaw No. 800-18 also proposes amending the Development Areas by rezoning parts of Lot 1 Block 2 Section 18 Township 23 Range 9 West of the 6th Meridian Kamloops Division Yale District Plan 3312 from CD1-COMPREHENSIVE DEVELOPMENT-1 DEVELOPMENT AREA 1 to CD1-COMPREHENSIVE DEVELOPMENT-1 DEVELOPMENT AREA 2; and from CD1-COMPREHENSIVE DEVELOPMENT-1 DEVELOPMENT AREA 3 to CD1-COMPREHENSIVE DEVELOPMENT-1 DEVELOPMENT AREA 1 as shown on the following drawing:

The description of the purpose and effects of Bylaw No. 800-18 are only general. The bylaw may have an impact on property owners and tenants in occupation within the area.

BC Cancer Agency recruiting research subjects The BC Cancer Agency is appealing to adults aged 35-69 to register for the BC Generations Project before recruitment wraps up this March. The long-term health study – which has already

attracted close to 29,000 participants – has the potential to help researchers determine how genetics, environment and lifestyle contribute to our risk of developing cancer, as well as related chronic diseases

such as diabetes and heart disease.    With just a small commitment of time, participants can make a lasting contribution to the health of future generations. To join, participants must complete

three secure web forms: an informed consent form, a personal information form and a health and lifestyle questionnaire at www.bcgenerationsproject.ca. Over the next few years, the project will also ask

participants to provide a blood and urine sample, as well as complete additional questionnaires about their lifestyle and environmental exposures.   After recruitment closes on March 31, the BC Gen-

erations Project will enter the next phase of the project, which is to complete the collection of data and samples on participants, and to begin making this enormous data resource available for approved research projects.

LARRY ALLEN DYCK It is with profound sadness that we announce the sudden death of Larry Allen Dyck on March 16, 2013 at the age of 66. Larry was born on January 1, 1947 in Gladstone, Manitoba. Being from the prairies, there was always a special place in Larry’s heart for hockey, curling and agriculture. Larry was a standout defenseman for the Brandon Wheat Kings in the 1960s and the sport was a passionate pursuit throughout his life. Larry knew that sports were not what matters most in this world, though, and at the age of 18, Larry committed his life to Jesus Christ and chose his lifelong vocation of being a pastor. To that end, he earned bachelors and masters degrees in divinity at Providence College in Otterburne, MB. In 1968, he caught the eye of one Marilyn Lepp. They were married in August of 1969 and went on to enjoy 43 years of marriage. In the 1970s, Larry served as a pastor in churches in Birch Hills SK, Swan River MB and Winnipeg. In 1977, Larry and family relocated from Winnipeg to Salmon Arm, after being smitten with the beauty of the Shuswap. Larry was the pastor of First Baptist Church (now Shuswap Community Church) from 1977 to 1991 and from 1996 to 2005. Since 2010, he served as the pastor of Faith Baptist Church in Vernon. Larry devoted himself fully to the well-being and spiritual growth of the many who attended the churches he led over the years, and he remained invested in the lives of many of them right up until the day of his death. Larry is predeceased by his parents, Peter and Margaret Dyck. Larry is survived by his wife Marilyn, of Salmon Arm. His is also survived by his son Jeff and daughter-in-law Jessica of Surrey, and children Amelia, Simon and Paul. As well, his daughter Janine and children Josiah, Kaley and Hunter of Vernon and his sister Dorothy of Brandon, Manitoba. Larry took great delight in his children and grandchildren and took every opportunity to spend time with them in recent years. Donations in Larry’s memory may be made to World Evangelization for Christ (WEC) at www.weccanada.org, or to the charity of their choice. The funeral service will be held at Shuswap Community Church, 3151 6th Avenue NE, at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, March 23. Interment will follow in Mt. Ida Cemetery, with a reception back in the Church. Online condolences may be sent through Larry’s obituary at www.bowersfuneralservice.com. Funeral arrangements are in the care of Bowers Funeral Home, Salmon Arm.

FRANK WILLIAM TAMS “BILL” October 5, 1928 - March 12, 2013 Bill passed away peacefully at his home on Shuswap Lake with his wife, Shirley and his family at his side. An Avid fisherman and outdoorsman, Bill spent many enjoyable hours fishing and hunting with his sons and friends on Shuswap Lake and at the Coast. He could often be seen sitting at the end of the dock at his home enjoying his morning coffee and watching the sunrise. Dad said, “I love to be on the water, I never tire of it.” Bill spent his working life with BC Telephone and was a member of the Telephone Pioneers of America. He really enjoyed his long retirement, spending many years travelling with Shirley. Most summer weekends would find him surrounded by his extended family enjoying barbeques with the wine flowing. There are lots of good times to remember. Bill is survived by his loving wife, Shirley, his sons, Bob (Deb), Brian (Deb), and daughter, Sue Bergren (Terry), five grandchildren and two great grandchildren. The family would like to thank the Community Care/Palliative Care nurses (thanks Mern) for their wonderful care and support. Thanks also to Fischer’s Funeral Services for all their help and support. Donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society or the Shuswap Community Care. “Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal” Arrangements entrusted to FISCHER’S FUNERAL SERVICES & CREMATORIUM LTD., Salmon Arm (250) 833-1129.

The Columbia Shuswap Regional District will be looking at the food we eat – and throw away. The regional district board approved a recommendation by solid waste management co-ordinator Ben Van Nostrand to allocate $60,000 for a food waste composition study and regional waste composition study. Van Nostrand told the board there has been a growing demand to move into food waste composting from member municipalities and the public. “Food waste can account for 20 to 40 per cent of typical household refuse and recycling that content will help move the CSRD towards its goal of zero waste,” he wrote in his report to the board. “However, it’s important to understand the true cost impactions of moving forward with a collection and recycling program for food waste materials.” Van Nostrand advised directors of a waste composition study conducted at the Salmon Arm landfill in 2006 that provided information for the development of the solid waste management plan. Staff have now proposed to conduct waste composition studies at all CSRD landfills in 2013. Van Nostrand says the studies are key to implementing new waste diversion initiatives and to assessing existing programs. With board approval secured, CSRD will release a request for proposals.
