South Shuswap Chamber in limbo

Lack of interest: Tourism information to be taken over by community group. By Barb Brouwer

market news staff

Tourists will be able to get answers to their questions, thanks to the Sorrento and Area Community Association (SACA). SACA has stepped up to the plate following the announcement early in March that the South Shuswap Chamber of Commerce would no longer operate the Visitor Information Centre for Electoral Area C

South Shuswap. Chamber past-president Judy Smith had advised Paul Demenok, Area C South Shuswap director of the Columbia Shuswap Regional District, that only six people had attended the chamber’s Jan. 8 AGM, where directors indicated they did not wish to serve another term. “They had been on the board for several years and were discouraged at the lack of participation by the members at large,” wrote Smith.

“The meeting was adjourned with no board being voted in.” Smith also told Tourism BC of the decision, and was advised that the only way to keep the visitor centre in the Blind Bay community was to have another community association take it over. “The chamber was disbanded and when this happened, they approached SACA, asking them if they’re interested,” CSRD economic development officer Robyn Cyr

told directors at the March 21 board meeting in Salmon Arm. “They had been delivering visitor information services in the South Shuswap for the past four years with volunteers.” But Demenok advised the board that the chamber, with the knowledge and approval of the BC Chamber of Commerce, is merely in limbo in order to give the business community an opportunity to See One-year on page 2

Vote proceeds with caution By Barb Brouwer

market news staff

There was an abundance of caution at the March 21 Columbia Shuswap Regional District board meeting in Salmon Arm. Two items were “segregated” in the CSRD’s five-year plan in reaction to a recent court judgment that found directors could be in conflict of interest when they vote or participate in financial matters of a non-profit society when they serve in their capacity as elected officials. Charles Hamilton, CSRD’s chief administrative officer, said lawyers for the regional district suggested only two directors were regarded as possibly being in conflict of interest – Elector Area D

director René Talbot, the regional district’s appointment to the Fraser Basin Council, and Gary Habart, Electoral Area A director who sits on the board of the Golden Area Economic Development Society. “We have discussed the matter with them and what we’re proposing is that they excuse themselves from the resolution (to include payments of $7,000 and $152,800 to their respective societies)… so that directors, who may be considered to be in conflict can abstain from voting on the two issues, but vote on the rest of the five-year plan,” said Hamilton, explaining it removes the director from making a decision to provide funding to either organization. Area C South Shus-

wap director Paul Demenok took issue with the move. “If you’ve been elected to the board, I think that trumps being appointed as an official to another board,” he said, following the board meeting. “I think that means you’re representing more people, and the board meeting you should stand aside from is the one to which you are appointed rather than the one to which you were elected.” Hamilton agreed that lawyers in the province are struggling with how to deal with the issue. “We tried to come up with an approach that allows us to move forward with the budget,” he said. “Some municipal governments are bringing in alternates to vote on the budget while some are ignoring it.”

One-year contract approved Continued from front regroup. He was disappointed the chamber is not in operation and said he has had several discussions with local businesspeople. “Businesses are going to suffer, and as a result the economy will suffer – they’ll be

missing out on all the chamber benefits,” he said. “I would like to see it reinvigorated – to see a vital and active chamber.” Meanwhile, directors approved $10, 500 for a one-year contract between CSRD and SACA to facilitate continuation of visitor information services

for 2013 and beyond – with some conditions. SACA staff will be trained in order to become an accredited Tourism BC Visitor Information Centre. As well, regional district staff will oversee day-to-day delivery of the service and report back to the board with regard to future funding.

Local mail sorted in Vancouver By Lachlan Labere

MARKET NEWS STAff

Canada Post is changing how its letters are handled, moving mail sorting away from small community outlets to centralized locations. Salmon Arm residents may have noticed the impact of this locally with the removal of the “Local” destination mailboxes from the community this past weekend. Now, if a letter addressed to Salmon Arm is dropped off in a Salmon Arm mailbox, or at a private outlet, it will be sent to Van-

couver, where it will be sorted and returned to Salmon Arm for delivery. However, if the same letter is delivered to the corporate post office clerk, it will stay in Salmon Arm for delivery. Post office employee and CUPW local 823 (Salmon Arm) president Dale Wereschuk is encouraging residents to bring their local mail to the post office counter, stating it will have an impact on jobs. “We lost a position effective today, a fulltime position, which happens to be a wicket position,” Wereschuk

250-832-7192

said Monday. Canada Post spokesperson Anick Losier says the position Wereschuk referred to was a retirement, and that no one lost their job. However, she adds the position will not be replaced. “Quite frankly, we would rather stay status quo, but the status quo is not viable for us,” says Losier. Wereschuk says the union and Canada Post will be monitoring mail sorted in Vancouver, to ensure it comes back for delivery in two day’s time, as per corporation standards.

There’s potential for economic prosperity and local food security right at our feet, and a Salmon Arm man wants the city to recognize this in its strategic plan. John McLeod, a retired farmer involved with local agricultural initiatives such as the Shuswap Food Action Co-op, as well as the city’s agricultural advisory committee, wants agriculture to be made front and centre in Salmon Arm’s future strategic plan. He feels the city’s current online survey, at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/SalmonArmResidents, doesn’t offer enough opportunity for meaningful input. The survey gives residents an opportunity to indicate where they think the city should prioritize the preservation of rural and agricultural land over the next 10 to 15 years, with responses ranging from “very important” to “not important” to “don’t know. This is in relation to other concerns such as protecting environmentally sensitive ecosystems and reviewing hazard areas such as flood plains. For McLeod, this just doesn’t go far enough. He notes more than 70 per cent of Salmon Arm’s land base is in the Agri-

cultural Land Reserve (ALR), and this land is a resource that, when managed in a sustainable manner, will provide employment and economic benefits to the community year after year. “We have all this dirt that can produce and with that production, we’ve got capability here already built for storing it so that we can have fresh produce, fresh meat, 365 days a year. And we have the capability of value-adding it,” says McLeod. One way to make agriculture a pillar of the strategic plan, says McLeod, would be to create an agriculture department at city hall. McLeod’s vision for this is not another level of bureaucracy, but a department run on more of an ad hoc basis. “The agricultural advisory committee can be part of it, we can use the provincial department of agriculture for expertise and guidance with their information, and we have the Agricultural Land Commission that’s more than willing to provide information,” says McLeod. “So it can be a thing where somebody can go in from the agricultural advisory committee two days a week or something and answer questions or provide information or take down questions and seek out the answers.” McLeod says this department

would be used to set up and maintain a database of available agricultural land and people in need of land to farm. Coun. Ken Jamieson, who chairs the city’s agriculture committee, says currently agriculture is something that tends to overlap existing departments at city hall, something that is already dealt with on an ad hoc basis, but not really embedded into everyday workings. And while he hadn’t had time to form an opinion on McLeod’s recommendations, Jamieson says it would be a mistake to ignore agriculture, “especially since the college initiative has suggested it be a pillar of their plans and the fact that twothirds of the land within the city is in the ALR.” Ultimately, for McLeod, the goal is to awaken people to an invaluable, renewable resource that should not be taken for granted. “We’ve got to educate the community that we do not pave over and build on agricultural land,” says McLeod. “We preserve it, and we keep it for future generations. Once we build on it, we’ve limited where our grandchildren are going to be able to get their food from.” Anyone wanting more information may contact McLeod at johnwmac@telus.net.

Clearly benefiting from the road experience, their new album Dale – from the Spanish ‘Move it!’ – packs a punch. With superior, tighter performances from front man, guitarist Eric St-Laurent, percussionist Michel DeQuevedo and bassist Jordan O’Connor, the audience is treated to “a raucous dialogue between the artists,

over infectious beats and catchy melodies.” Featuring 10 new original compositions from St-Laurent, Dale focuses on how the trio sounds live. “It is a true representation of the band’s performance on any given night,” explains St-Laurent, a key objective for this third album.

The Shuswap Photo Arts Club invites you to sit back in your seat and travel to the four corners of the world as captured through the camera’s lens. The photographic voyage begins at 2 p.m. Sunday, April 7 at the Salmar Classic Theatre. Join members of the club as they share photos and experiences of their travels to France, China, Australia and a cruise from San Diego to Peru. The presentations are set to music and last approximately two-and-one-quarter hours. Henry and Teri Schnell lived in France for several years. Teri will give you a glimpse into some of the lesser know picturesque French scenes. Paris may be the most-visited city in the world, but the couple discovered many other parts of the country to explore, such as Carcasonne, Colonges la Rouge, the fascinating village of the Hameau de la Reine. Martin and Myrtle Kyllo have travelled to China several times in recent years. Their presentation records a visit to the southwest area of Yunan province during the Chinese New Year. Included are photos of two tribal groups on their home ground and the Red Earth country, as well as several cities and a historical village still using traditional agricultural practices. Jerry Linowski and Carol Pierce have embarked on many cruise-ship adventures. They will share their cruise from San Diego to Peru, featuring ports of call in Mexico, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Panama, Ecuador and Peru. Ian and Wendy Clay spent 10 weeks in southeast Australia in late 2011, including exploring Sydney and the Blue Mountains. They will show photos of some familiar sights and landmarks, as well as lesser-known ones. Scenic walks and hikes, ferry rides, interesting places and architecture are just some of what you will see. This event is a club fundraiser for a new digital projector. A minimum donation of $5 is requested. For more information about the show or the Photo Arts Club, contact Ian and Wendy Clay at 250-832-2350, or iwclay@shaw.ca.

Income gap still on the increase

More money is being earned by fewer people. According to Statistics Canada, 10.6 per cent of the country’s income is now earned by the top one per cent of those who filed tax returns in 2010. The median income for those top earners is almost 10 times higher than the median income for the remaining 99 per cent. This disparity between the haves and the rest of society was the fuel for last year’s Occupy movement that spread around the world from Wall Street. It is a component of the First Nations’ Idle No More protests to reclaim their portion of Canada’s enormous wealth of natural resources, pumped and excavated from lands that once belonged to them. The gap between rich and poor has fired protest and unrest for as long as there’s been currency. Just ask the French, who disposed their monarchy when the population could no longer afford bread because of onerous taxes. In fact, Canada’s not doing too badly when it comes to dispersing income, ranking somewhere in the middle of the rest of the world. According to the Gini Index, a measure of income dispersion developed by an Italian statistician and sociologist in which a coefficient of zero means everyone has exactly the same income, and one means all the wealth within a country is held by one person, Canada’s coefficient is .688. That’s lower than countries like Brazil (.784), the United States (.801) and Switzerland (.803). But it’s higher than the Netherlands (.650), Belgium (.662) and Germany (.667).The country with the most equal distribution of income in the world, according its Gini coefficient of .547, is Japan. Of course, all those statistics are meaningless the next time you check your bank statement. Somehow, it’s never enough. -Black Press

OpiniOn

Things that don’t fit the mandate (Part one of a three part series) What do laundry detergents and the Federal Government’s Bill C-38, passed in 2012, have in common? They are both highly detrimental to our lakes and streams and the wildlife that live in and around them. Recent news reports have been dominated by the federal government’s announcement of the withdrawal of funding and/or closure of a number of Canada’s leading environmental research facilities, including the Experimental Lakes Area (ELA) in Ontario and the Polar Environment Atmospheric Research Lab (PEARL) located at Eureka, in Nunavut. Closure of the ELA research facility in Ontario is a direct result of amendments to the Fisheries Act and the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act that were sneaked through last year with the passing of Bill C-38. Established in 1968, the ELA research facility, is located in a wilderness area between Kenora and Dryden. Over the years it

The GreaT OuTdOOrs James Murray has earned an international reputation for groundbreaking studies in the field of freshwater research. The facility is comprised of 58 small lakes and their watersheds, and has served as a natural laboratory for scientists from around the world where they have been able to study the effects of various pollutants or stressors on freshwater systems. This is where scientists first discovered that phosphates in laundry detergents and other household products were causing lakes to turn green with algae – studies which subsequently led to soap companies having to change the ingredients of their products. Fisheries and Oceans Canada now, however, says

that it wants nothing more to do with the ELA, arguing that the research conducted at the facility no longer fits in with its “core mandate.” Many of the scientists that have been involved with the research facility are of the opinion that the decision to shut down the ELA has more to do with ideology than economics, and that its closure will do “incalculable damage” to their ability to preserve the quality of this country’s lakes, rivers and streams. (The federal government says that it will save some $2 million by shutting down the facility.) While Federal Fisheries Minister Keith Ashfield is saying little about the pending closure (March 31) of the ELA, he has gone on record to say: “Our government is currently in the process of negotiations for the transfer of the Experimental Lakes Area to an appropriate third-party stakeholder.” And, while the negotiations are confidential, he adds “we are optimistic there will be positive results.” Scientists who work in the environmental research field see things differently.

“It’s a complete travesty,” says biology professor John Smol, who holds the Canadian Research Chair on Environmental Change at Queen’s University. Former ELA director Dr. Schindler began to realized the station was in jeopardy when Natural Resources Minister Joe Oliver began referring to environmentalists as “radicals who were trying to destroy the Canadian economy.” I am not an environmental radical, nor am I trying to destroy the Canadian economy. But I am concerned that if the federal government is prepared to close such an internationally respected research facility in Ontario in order to save a couple of million dollars (at the expense of our freshwater lakes and streams), what is it prepared to do elsewhere in Canada? When will changes brought about by amendments to the Fisheries Act and the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act, that are a result of Bill C-38, be coming to British Columbia. I’ll tackle that question and several others in my next two columns.

Editorial runs contrary to previous positions I was amazed by the editorial setting out what the NDP must do to win the next election in the last edition. First, the election hasn’t been called yet.   Second, I’d bet dollars to donuts that

Black Press endorsed the Liberals in the last three elections. So where is the mea culpa, the acknowledgement that they share some of the responsibility for what we got? It isn’t as though

the Liberals suddenly changed their spots after 2009. Third, they have columnists like Mr. Tom Fletcher who has so far refused to answer my March 8 email asking him what  his own sci-

entific credentials are which enable him to say that David Suzuki is resorting to bad science. I’m still waiting. Now some anonymous  writer knows what the NDP “must”

do and what the voters think? Shouldn’t this be preceded by coming clean themselves? How about, “We were wrong.”

South ShuSwap Going, going, gone at auction Over the years the Burnett family of auctioneers has been collecting treasures from all over the world. Some have been found on their travels, others were picked up at auctions – all have ended up in the same place, tucked here and there throughout their house. Now the Burnetts have decided it is time to downsize, and maybe make room for a few new treasures. As a result, Carlin Hall auctioneers have dedicated an entire auction to their own personal collection at Carlin Hall on Sunday, April 14. Some of the items are indeed antiques, but there will also be household goods ranging from coffee pots, to carpets, to furniture, Zeta Burnett says. There will be bikes, copper and garden decorations, as well as boats and a little bit of everything else. Burnett says the family has been in the auction business for more than 40 years, selling everything from cattle, toys to

cars and antiques. “It has gotten to be more than a hobby now, it is a lifestyle,” she says, admitting that while they are actively trying to reduce their own collection, they keep coming home with more and more. The family prides itself on their relaxed, family-friendly auction events, where people are encouraged to attend just for enjoyment. However, she warns, it is those who do not plan to buy that usually do. Auctions are very much about impulse buying, she says. Even if you don’t plan on it, you often end up packing something home. “We are not really seeking profits and we do not charge a buyer’s fee,” says Zeta. “So you are able to have fun with the audience, the buyers and each other.” All of their Carlin Hall auctions are put on by family, which is part of the reason they understand the importance of making the event a family affair. Both her husband and her

On April 8, the centre will be hosting a potluck dinner, which is set to begin at 5:30 p.m. April 10 will see the North and South Shuswap Guys and Gals Hikers group hitting the trails. For more information on this event, or to get on the email list, contact Gloria by phoning 250-675-0036, or email her at gloria16@

Busy month at Cedar Heights Centre Cedar Heights Community Centre members are encouraging local residents to clear their calendars and make way for one of their many upcoming events. The month of April is going to be busy for the centre, that is kicking off a month of activities with a spring cleanup event on April 6. The centre is looking for any volunteers who could spare some of their time to help prepare for the upcoming open house, which is to take place the follow-

On April 13, the open house will begin at 10 a.m. and will feature karate and seniors’ theatre demonstrations. Free refreshments will be on hand and a hotdog lunch will be served. Participants are invited to enter draws for golf and tennis passes, karate memberships or two individual memberships. There will also be a

sod-turning ceremony to celebrate modernization and expansion to the hall. Columbia Shuswap Regional District directors last month approved $15,335 from the Electoral Area C Community Works Funds for energy efficient upgrades in heating and windows. The new boiler will have an energy efficiency rating of 95 per cent, an improvement of 20 per cent. And the new “low e” windows will reduce heat loss by up to 75 per cent.

Find treasures among junk By Cavelle Layes

MARKET NEWS STAff

Whether you are looking to get a little spring cleaning out of the way or hoping to find something special to add to your home, the Junk In Your Trunk sale will likely fill the bill. The family-friendly event is put on each year at Carlin Hall as a fun way to raise money, with some of the proceeds going to Second Harvest and the rest towards the upkeep of the hall itself.

Events like this are important as they help raise the funds needed for minor maintenance within the hall, keeping it in working order so it can host many of the community events throughout the year. The Junk in Your Trunk event has been very popular in past years, and event coordinators doubt they will see much change this year. The event acts as a giant yard sale, says Joan O’Brien, describing items from past

events which have included half-ton trucks, furniture, kitchen supplies and many other items new and old. You never really know what will turn up at these events, O’Brien says. It is a chance for anyone who has just undergone some spring cleaning and has emptied their house and shops of any clutter, but now has piles of items and nowhere to put them. While there may not be any use left for those

items in your house, they may just provide the new centerpiece in someone else’s. Those who wish to sell their treasures may do so by renting a table for $10 or a space outside. Patrons of all ages are encouraged to check out the event, and O’Brien says while they may not plan to buy anything, they might just find something they can’t live without. Homemade snacks and beverages will be

available to those who would like a midday treat. The Junk in Your Trunk event runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, April 20. To book a table, call O’Brien at 250-8350104, or send her an email to joan462@ telus.net.

Nightclub converts to church Lakeside Community Church opens the doors to their new space Easter Sunday and invites Salmon Arm to see what they’ve done with the place. It’s not that difficult to find stories of church buildings being transformed into nightclubs. It’s rarer to find stories of nightclubs being turned into churches. In January, Lakeside Church began the process of transforming the old LiveWire nightclub in downtown Salmon Arm into a space that will serve as a meeting place for the church and ministry to the community. It was a challenge to take a space that lay unused for several years, with much of the equipment from its former use still in place, and transform it to serve a new purpose. Pastor Ken Dryden says when church members first looked at leasing the space it took some time to see beyond the initial

impression to what it could be. Renovation of the old nightclub has prompted curiosity in the community and more than one humorous comment about how the church could incorporate the bar equipment into their plans. As the work has progressed, the transformation has been dramatic. The aim has been to create a space that feels welcoming and where people feel at home. But the vision for this space goes far beyond just providing a home for a congregation that has spent the last few years meeting in a school gym. “Lakeside has always been a church that values strong connections with our community,” says Dryden. “It’s why we regularly do things like a free Christmas dinner, services at the wharf and downtown on the street last year and an annual food drive for the Salvation Army.

1. Use a smaller plate. This will trick the eye and brain into thinking you are eating a lot. A large plate seems empty with smaller portions, prompting many men and women to eat more than is necessary. Using a smaller dish can give the impression of eating from an overflowing dish. 2. Make vegetables a priority, not an afterthought. Fill up on vegetables and make meat and other higher-calorie foods the afterthought, instead of vice-versa. In fact,

two-thirds of your dish should be consumed by vegetables, with the remaining portion for a protein or starch. 3. Avoid family style meals. That means placing large serving dishes full of food directly on the table. It encourages going in for seconds when you really may not be hungry. It takes the brain at least 20 minutes to register feeling full. So serve yourself from the stove and wait to see if you’re still hungry before going back for more. 4. Switch to skim products. It is widely known that dairy products are an important component of healthy living. However, whole-milk varieties tend to be heavy on calories and saturated fat. Opt for skim milk whenever possible. Today, there are ultra-pasteurized varieties of skim milk that

are creamy and filling. 5. Rely on seafood protein. Eating fish once or twice a week is an excellent way to cut calories and enjoy a food that is rich in essential fatty acids. 6. Experiment with herbs, not salt. A lot of sodium in a diet may not be good for blood pressure and it can lead to water retention. Instead, reach for herbs to add flavor to foods. Keep a fresh selection of parsley, chives, cilantro, basil, and other herbs at the ready and chances are you won’t even miss the salt. 7. Go sparingly on dressings and sauces. You can quickly turn a healthy salad into an unhealthy meal if you drizzle on too much creamy salad dressing. Studies show that some fast food salads have more fat than other fast food fare, including hamburgers. Opt for the

cising frequently are the key ways to maintain a healthy weight, it’s easy to fall into bad habits. Some men and women find it difficult to avoid temptation and stay on track with diet. But balance and portion control are great ways to enjoy food without gaining weight. Here are some tips to live by.

octors, fitness professionals and nutritionists all have ideas on what men and women should and should not eat. Choosing the right foods can help save waistlines and lives. The country is growing larger, and that has nothing to do with the population. Individuals are heavier than ever before. About one-third of Americans are considered obese. No state in the U.S. has an obesity level less than 20 percent. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention states that 36 states had a prevalence of 25 percent or more; 12 of these states (Alabama, Arkansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and West Virginia) had a prevalence of 30 percent or more. The obesity story is much the same in Canada, although residents of that country are slightly less obese than Americans. Statistics Canada states that from 2007 to 2009, 24.1 percent of adults in Canada were obese. Women have higher levels of obesity than men in both countries. Although it is widely known that eating a healthy diet and exer-

dressing on the side, or select among fatfree alternatives. Use only about 1 to 2 teaspoons for flavor. 8. Indulge once in a while. Depriving yourself of everything that is tasty can lead to binge eating or overeating. Just remember to keep the portions of sweets or fattening foods modest and try not to over-do it the rest of the day. 9. Don’t forget the exercise. The American College of Sports Medicine offers benefits of exercise beyond simply helping you to lose weight: * Lowers risk of heart disease by 40 percent. * Lowers risk of breast cancer by 20 percent. * Lowers risk of depression by 30 percent. * Lowers risk of hypertension by 40 percent. * Lowers risk of type 2 diabetes by 58 percent.

ou have the right to make a choice. It’s about alternatives. You can take pills to cover up your pain, but it’s like filling a pothole. It will last for only so long before it becomes a problem again, sometimes bigger! Wouldn’t it be better to get to the cause, thereby getting rid of the symptom? That is what Chiropractic does. We want to get to the root cause of the problem, not just cover it up. By adjusting the spine, Chiropractors assist the brain’s communication with the body, thereby helping the body heal itself more naturally. Chiropractors help initiate a natural healing process within the body. Cells receive improved nerve communications and are able to properly regenerate and thrive. Disease is eliminated and a state of health and well-being is restored.

The second frontier boomtown

While the story of the Shuswap’s first town of Seymour City (Ogdenville) that was built and mostly abandoned in just one year, 1866, is fairly well known; fewer people are aware that in that same year the town Eagle Pass Landing was also built at the mouth of the Eagle River. The story begins in July 1885 when Governor Seymour was concerned about the need for a trail from Ogdenville to the Big Bend gold fields on the Columbia River. He selected Walter Moberly, who was in charge of the Lands and Works Department for the colony, to survey and blaze a trail and survey the country east of Shuswap Lake Don’t to determine the best location for a wagon road. Moberly, along with four surveyors, Perry, Green Turnbull and Cowan and some Indian guides and packers left the Kamloops fort in two bateaux to get to the Hudson’s Bay Company outpost at the head of Seymour Arm, where he left his assistants to survey two possible routes, while he went with two Indians to explore the lake. At the northeast of the Shuswap Arm of the lake they ventured up the river as far as pos-

sible by boat and then headed upstream on foot where they climbed up a mountain to get a view of the area. From on top of the mountain, Moberly observed eagles flying into what appeared to be a unbroken wall of mountains before disappearing, and thus he determined that there must be a pass through the range. He then returned to Ogdenville to join his crew and hike to the Big Bend along the shortest trail they surveyed, where they built a dugout canoe and headed down the Columbia River. From near where Revelstoke is today, they journeyed through the pass the eagles had used to return to Shuswap Lake and somewhere near where Craigellachie is today he blazed a small cedar tree and wrote the words, “This is the pass for the Overland Railway.” Moberly used Eagle for the name of the river, the pass, and the mountain. When the miners learned about pay for route 90 days the better to the Columbia from near the mouth of the Eagle River, many of them headed there and once again another boomtown was built in a few months. Eagle Pass Landing was a ramshackle community with crude tents, shacks, log cabins and a few board saloons and gambling dens with false fronts, along with wooden sidewalks. And there was a depot for shipping provisions, a general store and a blacksmith’s shop. But this first town was short-lived, as when the

Citizens’ views sought for strategic plan By Martha Wickett

market news staff

From stormwater treatment to arts and culture, the City of Salmon Arm wants your view on a number of issues. As part of the process to create the city’s first strategic plan, surveys are now available for residents and community organizations to voice their opinions on priorities for city projects and initiatives over the next 10 to 15 years. Information about the city’s role, timing for completion, funding sources and partnerships also make up part of the surveys. Corey Paiement, the city’s corporate officer, explains that about 90 community organizations have been contacted and provided a survey to complete.

Slo-pitch featured at Games By Sarah MacMillan Black press

Kamloops will host the 2013 BC Seniors Games from Aug. 20 to Aug. 24. The city is expecting more than 3,500 athletes, ages 55 and up, to attend the Games, which will feature 25 events, ranging from cribbage to ice hockey. Bob Reid is a Kamloops resident who enjoys a good ball game. “I’ve always loved to play ball,” said Reid, zone eight slopitch co-ordinator. However, a competitive baseball game can be physically and mentally demanding, as well as dangerous. “Baseball is more demanding than hockey,” said Reid, “And you get more injury starting and stopping.” That is why Reid recommends the game of slo-pitch to anyone who loves to play a good ball game and wants one a little safer than baseball. “The rules have changed somewhat, for the safety of the players,” Reid said. In the B.C. Seniors Games slo-pitch there is no sliding, a minimum amount of tagging and substitute runners are also

available. The pitching is also slower. “The pitch is lobbed,” said Reid. However, Reid says the game can still be competitive. “The competitiveness is there as much as you want it to be,” said Reid. The level of competitiveness also affects the physical demands of the games. “I find slo-pitch can be physically demanding depending on competitiveness,” said Reid. However, in the B.C. Seniors games the physical strain of the game is somewhat decreased as the number of games played by one team per day is limited to two. Within the games, each zone is able to send a total of seven teams per zone, usually one for each age category. The teams are also divided into three events which consist of men’s, women’s and mixed. However, though slo-pitch is a team sport, a person can enter the games as an individual. “You can enter as a team or make yourself enter as an individual,” said Reid. “As an individual, you may get to play for another zone.” The teams entered play a round robin tournament and

Chase Funds allocated for friendship By Cavelle Layes

MARKET NEWS STAff

The Chase Village Council has been busy lately doing what they can to help the community move forward. Council voted to allocate $500 from the 2013 Grant In Aid fund to the Working Together Pow-wow Society. This is a start to what council hopes to be an ongoing process of reconnecting with the local bands. Coun. Steve Scott says he sees the allocation as the first step to creating a better friendship with their neighbours, and an attempt to work together.

Mayfest

The village council granted use of a parking lot across from the community hall as part of the Mayfest activities. This will not impact the Chase Farmer’s Market as the event will be taking place the week prior.

School board invitation

Council has voted to accept School District #73 chairperson Denise Harper’s invitation to meet with the board to discuss matters of mutual interest. The meeting will take place

n The Chase and District Fish & Game Club has applied for a controlled burn to prevent bighorn sheep from moving down the mountain to feed.

Burn to redirect sheep

Council voted to support the Chase and District Fish & Game Club in their application for a controlled burn. This controlled burn will be conducted in an attempt to prevent the bighorn sheep from coming lower on the mountain to feed. It would also give highway traffic a clearer view in case that the animals do make their way down. The club is also planning to renew the sup-

plementary salt supply higher up on the mountain as another attempt to keep the bighorn sheep off the highways and lower side of the mountain. TNRD has already acknowledged their support of their project, and the burn would be conducted under the direction of the Minstry of Forests.

Funds denied

Council received notice that the village was denied Community Infrastructure Improvement Funds (CIIF)

Literacy program in jeopardy By Cavelle Layes

MArKet neWS StAff

The Chase literacy program is seeking help after being targeted as one of 55 communities who may not be receiving funding this year. In the past, the Ministry of Education provided $2.5 million to fund 102 programs

around the province. Last year, the budget was cut by $1.5 million and this year it was decided to allocate the remaining $1 million in funding to 47 programs in larger, urban areas. However, earlier this week, B.C.’s education minister Don McRae announced the restoration of $1 million

n About 1 p.m. on Friday, March 22, a truck slammed through a pole, snapping it off, and into mailboxes at the Silvery Beach turnoff, just west of the Squilax bridge. Two occupants did not appear to be severely injured.

Chase Literacy Program, said, “It is difficult to measure or be aware of the impact of the literacy programs in the smaller areas. We are on limited budgets and do not have access or sponsorship of larger media centers to circulate all that we do.” Over the last three years, the Chase literacy program has organized more than 17 separate programs in an area that has embraced positive changes in a multitude of ways. Some of these programs include the Bright Red Bookshelf, which has expanded to now include shelves at the employment centre, physio centre, health centre and the Royal Bank. Monthly Family Fun Nights encouraged families to ‘unplug and play.’ The Nobody’s Perfect program targets parents of children from newborns to five. The program has received strong support

throughout the community for its creative and effective methods, says Maher. “If you wish to witness success I suggest you visit Haldane Elementary School any Tuesday at lunch hour,” she says. The program has initiated a voluntary reading program, and has also partnered with Haldane and with St John’s ambulance’s Therapy Dog program. “We are making a difference and it is important,” stresses Maher in her letter. Maher told council: “We are asking you to raise your voice and join the many other communities, the small communities, the backbone of the province, and request the Ministry of Education provide Decoda Literacy Solutions with adequate funding for all community literacy task groups in B.C.” On March 26, Chase council voted to write a letter of support.

Plan to turn camp into residential lots By Dale Bass black press

The committee charged with overseeing the planning for the part of the Shuswap area that contains Camp Grafton isn’t in favour of plans to turn part of the youth camp into residential lots. At its recent meeting, the advisory planning commission for electoral area F (North-Shuswap-Seymour Arm) recommended rejection of a rezoning application for the 18 hectares of land. Jennifer Sham of development services for the Columbia-Shuswap Regional District (CSRD) said the reason given for the recommendation was the committee’s belief the land should remain intact as a youth camp, which was its original purpose. The Kamloops United Church owns the property and wants to

create two beachfront residential lots of about one hectare in size. The money generated from sale of the lots would go into a fund being used to pay for a $12.8-million redevelopment of the St. Paul Street church into a house of worship, meeting rooms and housing units. Sham said the commission members recognize the issue is sensitive. The land is zoned institutional and requires a rezoning to institutional and residential. A bylaw approving the amendment has received second reading from the regional district council and the issue will now go to a public hearing. Sham said it likely will happen in May, when the weather is better for property owners in the area who live outside the regional district to make the trip. A ministry whose

Reading:

enhancing minds all across town

mandate includes aspects the rezoning could affect has told the CSRD it has minor concerns. The Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations said care needs to be taken in any construction to minimize impact on wildlife and fish habitat in the surrounding area. The ministry’s archeology branch said large portions of the property have not been mapped for possible archeological sites. The Interior Health Authority responded to the bylaw advisory that more information is needed to determine if the potential residential lots meet IHA subdivision guidelines. The CSRD environment and engineering services department reported the area is heavily treed and Fire Smart principles need to be incorporated into any development.

Man acquitted of weapons charges Joshua Timothy Reese was found not guilty of three weapons-related offences stemming from an arrest at a residence in Lee Creek. Reese was acquitted on charges of posses-

sion of a prohibited weapon, possession of a restricted firearm with ammunition and possession of a weapon contrary to court order. The judgment was issued in Kamloops

court last June. The incident took place March 7, 2012 at a residence on Eva Road, which has also been the site of an attempted murder, and a drug bust on Nov. 25, 2012.
