n Emma Schierbeck proudly displays the Easter bonnet that won her first place at the annual Sorrento Lions Club Easter Egg Hunt held Sunday morning at Sorrento Community Park. More than 500 people turned out for the event.

The federal government has joined the B.C. government in a commitment to fund two-thirds of a $4.5 million water treatment facility for the District of Sicamous. Sicamous Mayor Darrell Trouton received word Friday morning (March 28) from Okanagan-Shuswap MP Colin Mayes that the federal government will be providing $1.5 million for the facility’s construction. The funding comes through the Provincial-Territorial Base Fund for infrastructure under the federal Building Canada Plan. The federal funding was announced Friday afternoon as part of a joint commitment with the B.C. government, which is also contributing $1.5 to the project “That’s pretty darn exciting… it makes it all possible now,” Trouton said in a Market News interview. In October, Trouton announced the province was committed to providing one-third funding. This was after a visit by Sport and Cultural Development Minister Bill Bennett, who presented a cheque for $50,000 to fund a pilot project to test the filtration technology proposed for the new treatment facility. The pilot was to span six months, while the province worked with its federal counterparts to come up with funding options for the $4.5 million plant, to replace Sicamous’ current water treatment infrastructure that was severely compromised as a result of the June 23 debris flows at Two Mile and Swansea Point, as well as subsequent flooding.

Trouton said he and council will be looking to the 2013 budget and future budgets for the amount.

As of Monday, council had still not approved the recommendation, waiting on the federal/provincial funding commitment and data from the completed pilot project.

Development returns

Blind Bay: waterfront project deviates from OCP. By Barb Brouwer

market news staff

A storm is brewing over proposed waterfront development at Blind Bay Resort. Developer Dan Baskill has asked for an amendment to the official community plan to rezone a 3.8 acre on the waterfront from single-family residential to a new, unique comprehensive development zone that would allow him to create 20 individual lots at Blind Bay Resort. The request was presented to the Columbia Shuswap Regional District board meeting March 21 as a late agenda item. This angered Ray Nadeau, who is president of the Shuswap Water Action Society (SWAT) and member of an advisory committee to the Shuswap Lake Integrated Planning Process (SLIPP). Nadeau also sat on the advisory committee for the new official community plan, a process in which he says members of the public were adamantly opposed to further waterfront development. “The community has been clear and consistent over many years that such developments are not compatible without vision or community objectives,” wrote Nadeau in a March 19 letter to the board, which also reiterated a vision statement created by the new OCP public advisory committee. But CSRD manager of development planning Gerald Christie says the Blind Bay Resort application has been in the works, with many changes, for about the same length of time as the OCP review, and Baskill has the right to have his proposal heard. CSRD senior Planner Scott Beeching says Baskill has applied to redevelop his 12-acre property to allow another nine RV lots on his upland campground site as well as the 20 wa-

n An application to create 20 waterfront lots at the Blind Bay Resort will come before the CSRD board. terfront sites. Typically campgrounds are zoned temporary use and are intended for the travelling public, says Beeching. But what Baskill has done is sold shares in his company for the 61 upland spots and everyone who has bought a share is given exclusive use of the spot they’ve bought and most have parked their units there to use whenever they want to. “Some people are living there for almost full time, which is also not permitted under the zoning,” says Beeching, noting Baskill’s development is not consistent with the current OCP or the proposed amended OCP. “What he wants to do for the whole property is rezone it so he can create small lots and then people would be able to put an RV park model there, which meets the definition of a mobile home, or cabin and is essentially a single-family dwelling.” Meanwhile, Christie says Baskill has finally provided all the information the CSRD has been requesting to move the application forward to the board for consideration of first reading. “First reading is just getting the application before the board on the table for discussion,” he says. “This allows staff to refer the application out to agencies for comment, and also requires the applicant to hold a public meeting.”

Christie says the matter will not go to the board for second reading until that input has been received. “Generally speaking, (high) density by the public through those processes was not supported by the public as per the process we went through in the OCP,” he says, noting the OCP adopted in March 1995 was found wanting in some areas and only took in portions of the South Shuswap. “As we’ve all heard before, an OCP is a living document, so it is not static and sometimes policies change over time. Each application is considered on its own merit with direction provided by the OCP to staff and the board.” As far as the OCP goes, Christie says there are two things in play: “We have an existing OCP that does not support the development, so as part of the application that has been made to the CSRD, an OCP amendment has been applied for by the developer,” he says. “The proposed OCP that Ray (Nadeau) brings up has been considered at the board but it is not yet a bylaw that has been approved by the board at third reading.” Following third reading, the OCP will go to the Ministry of Community, Sport and Cultural Development, after which it will be returned to the board for final reading and adoption. “But, we’re months away from that,” says Christie.

Forum airs climate, fracking concerns Kairos Salmon Arm and Shuswap Environmental Action Society will sponsor a public forum on climate change and “fracking,” at 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 9 in the hall at First United Church. Experts Joe Foy and Eoin Madden from the Vancouver-based Wilderness Committee will speak to the issues. Foy is the Wilderness Committee’s national campaign director and, after completing a postgraduate degree in climate change, Madden is the Wilderness Committee’s climate change campaigner. With deposits of conventional gas and oil dwindling, the industry is keen to develop less accessible deposits of

oil and gas using hydraulic fracturing or “fracking.” This involves blasting millions of gallons of fracturing fluids, including sand, water and toxic chemicals, into well bores two miles deep that then deviate horizontally another kilometre underground. The rock is broken up through use of extreme pressures. “It is only in the last decade that a combination of four new technologies has enabled industry to access gas and oil trapped between layers of shale rock,” says Kairos member Ann Morris. “The problem is that this fracking technology has grown so quickly there has been insufficient time to

do the scientific study on its environmental and health impacts, or on the impact of the inevitable accidents.” There is also a concern fracking causes chronic leaks of methane, a potent climate change driver. “Many scientists believe rapid shale gas development will exacerbate global climate change and could tip the world into climate cha-

os,” says SEAS president Jim Cooperman. Foy says climate change is already happening, and at a much faster rate than was expected, but a worstcase scenario can still be avoided if government leaders listen to the World Bank, the UN Energy Agency and a coalition of the world’s largest investors who are calling for urgent action now.

Days of austerity over for parliament

In his recent budget speech, federal Finance Minister Jim Flaherty made it clear there are still tough times ahead for Canada. Though it appears members of Parliament were excluded from this sentiment. The days of austerity, if they ever truly existed, for the nation’s parliamentarians came to an end just before the Easter break, when it was revealed they’d be receiving a raise. As of Monday, the base salary of MPs jumped by 1.6 per cent – the first pay increase MPs have seen since the House initiated a three-year freeze. For many Canadians, a 1.6 per cent raise would barely register in their bi-monthly paycheque. However, it will bring the base salary of MPs up by about $2,500 to $160,200. The prime minister’s pay jumps $5,000 to $320,400. And cabinet ministers like Flaherty – whose budget speech warned Canadians of how the world economy remains fragile, global growth remains fragile and Canada is not immune – will see their pay jump by $3,600 to $236,900. It must be nice. A January StatsCan report helps put this wage increase into context with what the rest of Canadians generally continue to experience. The report shows median incomes nationally saw little change between 1982 and 2010. Things actually worsened in B.C., where median income dropped from $31,500 in 1982 to $27,500. The same report also shows the nation’s wealthy paid more in taxes in 2010 than they did 30 years earlier. As for our MPs, their wage gains may be offset by changes to the parliamentary pension plan, that will see them contribute 50 per cent, as opposed to the current 14 per cent. (Taxpayers cover the rest.) But this doesn’t kick in until 2017 – after the 2015 federal election.

Legislation ripe for manipulation Amendments to Canada’s environmental laws brought about with the passing of Bill C-38 effect some 70 pieces of federal legislation. Part three of the bill, entitled Responsible Resource Development, amends a number of pieces of environmental legislation, most notably the Fisheries Act, the National Energy Board Act and the Species at Risk Act. It also repeals the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act and introduces a new version of the act referenced as the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act 2012. Bill C-38 overwrites almost the entire previous Canadian Environmental Assessment Act. New legislation no longer requires environmental assessments of projects proposed or regulated by the federal government – except in cases where the environment minister designates a need for assessment. When a project is designated for environmental assessment, the new legislation allows the federal government to base its

The GreaT OuTDOOrs James Murray decision on conclusions drawn by provincial environmental assessments, thereby exempting the project from the federal act altogether. Such a process opens the door to lobbying by groups and interests wishing to keep their projects off the list. Under certain circumstances, the new legislation even goes so far in its wording to limit the assessment of environmental impacts to “the effects on fish, fish habitat, other aquatic species and migratory birds, as well as any environmental effects directly linked or necessarily incidental to the federal government’s role in the project.” Which means that under certain circumstances, certain

types of indirect impact/ effects need not even be considered, such as impact/ effects on endangered terrestrial species and their habitat, unless the effect/ impact occurs on federal land or crosses provincial or international borders. Public participation in hearings on projects such as the controversial Enbridge Northern Gateway Pipeline project can now effectively be restricted to those individuals, “directly affected” by the proposed project or deemed to have, “relevant information or expertise.” Legislation passed through Bill C-38 can also impose time limits on some federal environmental assessments. Those assessments conducted by an independent panel must be completed within a twoyear period, while assessments carried out by the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency have a one-year time frame for completion. If time runs out, the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency will complete the assessment in-house. The envi-

ronment minister now also has the power to disband an independent assessment panel and reassign it’s mandate to the Canadian Environmental Agency if the minister is of the opinion that the independent assessment panel will not be completed on time. This certainly opens the door for political interference. When and if an environmental assessment identifies significant adverse impacts, legislation introduced through Bill C-38 transfers the decision-making to cabinet rather than the department or agency responsible for regulating the proposed project. Cabinet can then decide whether or not any given project should proceed – despite its potential to impact the environment. Similar legislation passed through Bill C-38 also significantly weakens the habitat protection provisions under the Fisheries Act, and this is where it could have tremendous impact on all Canadians – if not British Columbians specifically. I’ll get into all of this in my next column.

B.C. Liberals to freeze carbon tax By Tom Fletcher BLaCk Press

VICTORIA – Premier Christy Clark and Environment Minister Terry Lake are expected to announce this week that a B.C. Liberal government will freeze B.C.’s carbon tax on fossil fuels at current rates for five years. Government sources said the freeze is to allow other jurisdictions to catch up to B.C., which taxes carbon dioxide emissions from fossil fuels at $30 a tonne. Former finance minister Carole Taylor introduced the carbon tax in 2008, covering transportation and heating fuel for homes and businesses. The rate rose over four years and was frozen for this year at seven cents per litre of gasoline, with comparable taxes on

diesel, coal, natural gas and other fuels. The carbon tax is budgeted to raise $1.2 billion in the fiscal year that began April 1, with all revenues required to be returned through personal and business income tax reductions. B.C.’s carbon tax was a political battleground before the 2009 election, with former NDP leader Carole James campaigning for it to be scrapped. At the 2008 municipal convention in Penticton, when former premier Gordon Campbell announced grants to offset carbon tax costs for towns and cities, James claimed the grants were to placate local politicians who were in open revolt against the tax. After the 2009 election, the NDP changed its position to support the carbon tax. Leader Adrian Dix has said revenues should go

towards transit expansion or energy-saving upgrades in municipal buildings and operations. B.C. Conservative leader John Cummins promises to eliminate the carbon tax. Cummins emphasizes the disproportionate impact the tax has on colder and more remote parts of B.C., but has not yet specified if offsetting income tax cuts would be reversed to make up the revenue to the province. B.C. Green Party leader Jane Sterk has

restated her 2009 policy of raising the carbon tax from the current $30 per tonne to $50 a tonne immediately. That would bring the tax to more than 10 cents per litre of gasoline. The Greens would also extend the tax to industrial process emissions such as cement kilns, and cancel the offsetting income tax reductions. The revenues would instead be used to fund transit and possibly energy retrofits for homes and other buildings.

Logging compromise benefits area When Hal and Trudy Dyck first noticed the footprints in the snow on their property in February 2012, little did they know what drama would soon unfold. A phone call confirmed that B.C. Timber Sales (BCTS) was planning to extensively log in the White Lake area. This news spread like wildfire, and with that, the community sprang into action. A meeting was organized with Jim Wright of BCTS, who provided maps, an information sheet, and a walk through some of the cutblocks to point out the trees to be left. The maps represented community consultations held in 1996-7. Concerns about the logging plans were voiced, but it became apparent that “nothing can be done to change this.” The area was subject to a Ministry of Forests, Lands, and Natural Resource Operations logging plan. It had been through consultations, and even though it was some 15 years later, and the White Lake community had changed significantly in that time, the plan was to push forward regardless. Several additional meetings were held with BCTS, to no avail. In July 2012 a community meeting was attended by some 70 residents who were concerned, angry and frustrated. A television station from Kelowna interviewed locals and carried a news story on air. A petition was started, asking for a one-year moratorium until a proper community response could be presented. The completed petition was signed by some 372 area residents as well as 600 to 700 non-residents. Alf Davy and Bryon Every became very active proponents for change, and with their ample energy and perseverance, they were successful in meeting with George Abbott MLA, and Steve Thomson, the Minister of MFLNRO. While these

Director’s notes Paul Demenok politicians were not unsympathetic, there were no commitments made at that time to change any of the BCTS plans. A new strategy and a new approach were needed. The first step was to reincarnate the White Lake Residents Association (WLRA). With new membership and a hot issue to address, a new executive was formed. A delegation appeared at the August 2012 CSRD Board meeting. A motion was passed supporting the community’s request for meaningful discussion with the provincial authorities. As representatives of WLRA, Alf Davy and Bryon Every travelled to Victoria to press their case at the highest levels. Numerous emails and telephone conversations were held. Rather than continuing to demand for a complete stop to all logging it was decided that the

primary focus would be on the most visible land immediately behind the White Lake Community Hall. If the logging couldn’t be stopped, perhaps improving the plans and increasing the percentage of retention trees would have a good effect. When this new strategy was proposed, people finally listened. The discussions evolved to focus on the percentage of trees that would be retained, and how the cutting could be selectively managed to avoid highly visible impacts. Now that the logging in K1K7 has occurred, the wisdom of that strategy is evident. With the 50 per cent retention rate it’s hard to tell the area was logged at all. Notes have been sent to Steve Thomson of MFLNRO and Colin

Johnston of BCTS, praising their collaborative approach as being a model for community relationships with government. This speaks to the critical importance of community associations representing their members’ interests to all levels of government. With the right approach and attitude, a seemingly impossible hurdle was successfully overcome. Given this outstanding work, I would encourage all White Lake residents to actively support the WLRA. There are plans to continue logging in the White Lake area in the future. Additional negotiations with government may need to occur, so we’ll see whether there will be a part two to this story.

Last-minute rush to return to PST By Tom Fletcher black press

VICTORIA – The brief era of the harmonized sales tax ended in B.C. this week, with a last-minute scramble by thousands of businesses to register as collectors of the revived provincial sales tax. About 100,000 businesses in B.C. are required to register and collect PST from customers. By the Easter weekend, about 80,000 of them had done so, said Naomi Yamamoto, B.C.’s minister of state for small business. “I think what most consumers will be doing is looking at their receipts,” Yamamoto said Sunday. “In most cases they’ll be paying the same as they did prior to April 1, unless you’re getting your hair cut, or buying a ski ticket or you’re paying your golf membership or going to a restaurant, or buying a bike.” The good news for barbers, bike shops, restaurants and other labour service providers is that they see a seven per cent tax reduction. The bad news is that they have to administer two sales taxes, the PST and the five per cent GST, which continues to apply to goods and services. There are a few anomalies, such as insulation and weatherstripping, where sales tax falls by seven per cent as historic PST exemptions resume Monday, but most retail purchases will remain subject to both GST and PST at a combined rate of 12 per cent. Yamamoto said businesses can register online by going to www. pstinbc.ca or www.gov. bc.ca/pst and selecting the registration link. Using incorporation documents, the process should take about 15 minutes. Business owners who don’t register immediately can still correct transactions made after the deadline, because the first online remittance of PST is expected at the end of May.

NDP finance critic Bruce Ralston said a statistically average family will be about $350 ahead with the removal of the HST, which was rejected in a mail-in referendum in

June 2011. Ralston acknowledged that low-income people will lose the increased HST rebates that have been paid quarterly since the HST took effect in 2010. But

he said that will be balanced by the reduced sales taxes they pay in restaurants and other service purchases. Tobacco taxes went up by seven per cent with the HST, and that

tax will remain. Liquor taxes have also been adjusted to be unchanged with either tax, although restaurants will pay increased tax on liquor sales with the return to PST.

Wellness

INFORMATION DESIGNED TO PROMOTE AND ENHANCE YOUR WELLBEING

Natural Health Care For Seniors What is natural health care for seniors? Who is a senior? Is it the 83 year old who hikes, snowshoes, kayaks and goes dancing but has osteoporosis and a little arthritis? Is it the 55 year old suffering from menopause or andropause (male hormonal decline)? Is it the person with diabetes, heart disease, arthritis or the dreaded memory loss? I have seen people in their 40’s who have these problems. It is easy to put labels on people, to try to fit them into categories, but each person still remains an individual with his own problems, concerns and issues. Whether you are 20 or 80, you still need individual health care and that is what naturopathic physicians specialize in providing. It is certainly true that as we get older, our bodies change and certain generalities can be made. Most people sleep less and wake up more frequently during the night. That is normal and not something to be concerned about as long as you are not tired during the day. If you are tired, then an exploration of your eating and drinking patterns can often shed light on the cause of the problem. Don’t

just assume that you need medication. If you do need a sleep aid, there are a number of herbal products that are gentle and non-addictive but that work very well. Again, as we age, our metabolism seems to slow down and we lose lean body mass (muscle). This may be somewhat due to a decrease in activity. A study reported that when seniors in a care home completed a program of gentle weight lifting (in their chairs), they were all stronger. Many could get out of their chairs by themselves for the first time in years. We also lose muscle when we don’t get enough protein in our diet. As we age, we need to eat less because of our decreased metabolisms but we need more nutrients. That means the food we choose needs to be highly nutritious. Tea and toast just isn’t

good enough. The other challenge that happens at this time of life is loss of taste and smell and an increase in dental problems. Ill-fitting dentures can negatively impact nutrient intake. Sometimes simply sitting down and talking with a senior about his eating can lead to simple changes that can improve his health. Other times the senior needs to complete a diet diary to get an accurate idea of what she is actually consuming. With a number of my older patients, the number one service that I provide is simply listening. In many cases friends have died or are failing. Families may be dispersed and/or busy. The senior may be caring for a beloved spouse who is deteriorating before her eyes. Having someone to talk to who is not judgmental and/or interfering can be a great relief. This

can be a time of great loss. Sometimes they just need someone to tell them it is okay to grieve and that everyone grieves on their own timetable. Sometimes younger people who have full and busy lives do not appreciate how devastating the loss of a pet or of that last childhood friend can be. Yes, certain supplements can help ease grief and anxiety but often a kindly ear is just as effective. Digestion changes as we age. We naturally tend to produce less stomach acid (despite all the TV commercials to the contrary). This means that we don’t digest our protein as well, which can lead to gas and bloating right after meals. It also means that we don’t absorb a number of minerals well which can have a negative impact on our bone health. If antibiotics are taken for infections, diges-

tive upset also results as intestinal flora is impacted. Probiotics can make a huge difference. Less exercise is often combined with decreased fluid intake (perhaps due to difficulty getting to the restroom), which leads to constipation. This is never pleasant and is normally easily remedied. So we come back to the first question: what is natural health care for seniors? It is basically working with the body to optimize its health. It is changing diet and lifestyle to allow the body to work better. It is supplying low or deficient nutrients so the body can actually do the things it needs to do to stay healthy. It may be adding some gentle herbs or homeopathics to encourage better functioning. It is determining a treatment plan tailored for each unique individual rather than treating a category or a disease. Naturopathic physicians are trained to take this approach. Most of what we do is gentle, non-invasive and supportive. If it doesn’t work, you can always progress to the drugs and surgery of conventional medicine.

WEll Every year dietitians promote and celebrate Nutrition Month. The theme this year is eating healthy by planning, shopping, cooking and enjoying meals. As a dietitian-in-training, I know the importance of being organized and having meals planned out. However, as a busy student, sometimes I find it challenging to practice what I preach. It is stressful to come home after a long day and then figure out what I can eat for dinner and whether it will be healthy and affordable on a tight student budget. Planning ahead can make things a lot less stressful and it doesn’t have to mean a lot of extra work. The Healthy Families BC website

sheet that I use to plan out my meals and create my shopping list for the week. You can find it here. Once I have my list in hand, I go shopping, but I make sure I do not go grocery shopping hungry. I have a snack beforehand so I will not be tempted to stray from my list and buy foods that I do not need. When I go shopping I try to buy most of my food from the perimeter of the store. This way I spend my time looking at the four food groups of Canada’s Food Guide and fill my basket with fruits and vegetables, meat, dairy and alternatives and whole grains. Sticking to my budget is important. To save money I use coupons and weekly sales flyers to plan meals, and I visit the bulk section of the grocery store so I can explore and try small amounts of ingredients

After shopping comes the cooking and preparation of my meals for the week. When I find I am eating the same few dishes over and over again, I look for new recipes to try. The Dietitians of Canada website has a link to simple, delicious recipes. I make several portions I can freeze then reheat later in the week when I do not feel like cooking. Sometimes, I will invite friends over for a potluck. We each bring a dish to share and it is a great way to try new foods and save money. Eating healthy can be challenging, but with a little meal planning and smart shopping, it does get easier. - Jerique Arqueza is a dietetic intern with Interior Health.

Give old soles to help those without By Jennifer Smith

MARKET NEWS STAff

It’s estimated that every person has at least three or four pairs of unused shoes in their closet. Meanwhile there are more than 300 million children worldwide who don’t own a single pair. Therefore North Okanagan residents are being asked to give their old soles to souls who need them. Soles4Souls Canada is a month-long shoe collection, starting Monday, for people to drop off their gentlyused shoes. April has been designated as Soles4Souls month in Canada and North Okanagan residents are urged to step up to the challenge. “We’re not asking for

money, we’re just looking for shoes,” said Betty Gallant, RBC mortgage specialist who is helping to organize the local effort along with the Rotary clubs in the area. From more than a dozen drop locations in Vernon, Armstrong and Salmon Arm, the shoes collected will be taken to Kelowna for sorting. While most of the shoes will be shipped around the world to needy areas, those in need locally will also be helped. “They’ll satisfy our local needs first,” said Gallant. And even the remaining one per cent of shoes that aren’t used don’t go to waste. “Nothing goes in the garbage, they recycle everything.”

From runners to high heels, all shoes are accepted but there are some specific pairs that are needed most. “There is an emphasis on children’s shoes and mens workboots and soccer cleats,” said Sandra Ross of Royal LePage, who is also organizing the collection. The goal for Soles 4 Souls Canada is to collect one million pairs of shoes in every province over the next few years. This is the Million Shoe Mission. So with spring underway, residents cleaning out their closets are asked to donate their gently worn shoes instead of throwing them away. In Salmon Arm, there is a drop-off box in the Piccadilly Mall.

Adventures abound in Larch Hills TrAiL TALes Marcia Beckner We headed up to Cec’s Cabin last Tuesday over Spring break to spend the night with our grandson, Max. Some wonderful backcountry skiing on Log Roller and out onto the adjacent bog, then back to the cabin for pasta dinner and card games. It started snowing that evening, and by the time it quit the next day at noon we had eight inches of the lovely white stuff. All that snow made our trip Wednesday morning into White Pine Walk quite magical. Max, our sevenyear old intrepid leader, broke trail through White Pine Walk, Whisky Jack, Afterthought, Greenway, and Treebeards. That was an adventure. Always a thrill to be back in the woods surrounded by old-growth with tree branches caressing our shoulders in the super narrow parts. We saw a weasel

at one point – so terribly interested in us that he stopped a number of times in his scurrying to check us out. White with black at the tip of his tail. Cute, but he didn’t stay still long enough for a decent photo. Back to Cec’s for lunch and to pack up the gear in the Chariot then head down Skytrail to the chalet where a group of young skiers on the Junior Racing team, including our granddaughter Maggie, were gearing up to head up to Cec’s to spend the night. Twelve youngsters and eight coaches/ parents make the trek, packsacks loaded with tents, food and gear. From all reports it was a terrific outing. The gang had a great camping experience, and then the backcountry ski out to the Lookout on Thursday. So wonderful to think that these ski adventures can be had so close to home. There are 19 skiers from Salmon Arm representing Larch Hills at the Nationals at Whistler Olympic Park. The results have been stellar! Thomas Hardy and John Connor swept

the field in the team relay sprint on Saturday, capturing the gold medal in Junior Boys. That same day, Alysson Marshall garnered bronze in the Open Women’s 5-kilometre free technique race. On Tuesday, Hardy skied to a first place finish in the 7.5-km classic event. Three Larch Hills skiers were in the top 20 of the 82 in that age category. The age categories are consistently 70-85 deep. Marshall again captured third – of 90 skiers – this time on the 10-km classic. On Sunday, Feb. 24, Kelowna’s Okanagan Sunday ran an article on Larch Hills by J.P. Squire, a follow-up to the article he wrote on our area two years ago. There was a nice photo of Cec’s cabin with skiers on the bench outside, including our own Jim Hoskins who had taken J.P. on that tour

of the trails two years ago. J.P. brought to the readers’ attention our on-going battle with the Ministry of Transportation over the lack of signage indicating the Larch Hills Ski Area as one approaches from the south on Highway 97B. How can one know that the Larch Hills turnoff is right by Egli’s mill if there is no sign? “The ministry’s new sign policy says crosscountry ski areas get only one highway sign. If the ministry puts up a Larch Hills sign for the Okanagan traffic, it will take the one for Salmon Arm skiers down,” said Larch Hills Nordic Society past-president Jim Beckner. “Doesn’t make too much sense. Not much support for recreational tourism. “Meanwhile, the rule for wineries and downhill ski areas, for

an agreement for a meeting from Chief Felix Arnouse and council members Brian Finlay and Tess Tomma. “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,” said Tomma in a writ-

ten statement, citing a violation of his and other band members’ rights. Calls to the band office were not returned before press time. Chief among Tomma’s complaints were the absence of band meetings and a lack of information regarding the band’s finances. Tomma also took issue

with the process around recent band elections, charging there had been no provisions for mail-in ballots. Unwilling to talk further, Tomma did agree Wednesday that he is happy “for now,” and is looking forward to a meeting with the Chief Arnouse and council at 10 a.m. tomorrow, Saturday, April 6 in the band office.

Council struggles with road rescue costs By Cavelle Layes

MARKET NEWS STAff

The fate of Chase road rescue came into question Tuesday afternoon when council sat down for the first meeting in the 2013 budget process. Coun. Rick Berrigan expressed his increasing concerns with the road rescue program after seeing a rise in expenses for yet another year. Berrigan requested that the fire department submit a more thorough breakdown of road rescue revenue and expenditures, and that it be separated from that of the fire hall. Berrigan, who was one of those who originally founded the road rescue program, focused on the many changes that have occurred since road rescue services were removed

from the non-profit society and became part of village services. “Ever since the fire department has taken it over there is pretty lavish equipment being purchased and there is pretty lavish training,” says Berrigan. He stated during the meeting that the road rescue program, when it was a society, was able to sustain a healthy bank account due to grants for non-profit societies and revenue from the provincial emergency program. Now the rescue unit is a part of the municipality, the revenues are extremely low compared to what they were before. “Now, I don’t ever want to see road rescue quit here because it is a valuable thing,” says Berrigan, “but the increase in expenses

son asked if they had been misled when the initial costs of running the road rescue program were presented to the former council, and questioned why their revenue was so high as a society compared to now. When they operated as a society, the rescue unit had very high call-

run by the village. Chase Fire Chief Brent Chamberlain says that during the time road rescue was a non-profit society, they were going out to every call that came in — now they only attend calls where people are trapped. Anderson says that if the numbers show that there is a need for what

It was also suggested during the meeting that some of the surrounding areas that benefit from the Chase road rescue program be asked to provide a small amount of funding for the service. Chase road rescue currently provides service to the secondlargest coverage area in B.C. at 3,000 square miles. Council intends to meet again Monday to continue budget discussions.

Pig and Whistle crew returns to stage By Cavelle Layes

MArKet neWS StAff

A local entertainment treasure is back again this year to celebrate its 21st anniversary, and with it comes a whole lot of history. If you haven’t already heard about it, the Pig and Whistle is a threeact musical variety show held every other year. It is put on as part of a major fundraiser by the Anglebay Entertainers and the Lakeview Community Centre in Anglemont. The production is based loosely on the Canadian musical television show of the same name, which aired from 1967 to 1977. The show featured singers, dancers and entertainers, with interaction with the audience. The very first Pig and Whistle was held on Nov. 11, 1978 in Celista Hall, with 90 people in attendance. “In the early years, only one show was performed,” says Lorrie Schrader. They took the show on the road, to Chase, Revelstoke, Celista and Sorrento. “The logistics of taking a cast and crew of that size on the road

didn’t work out that well,” explains Schrader. “When the Lakeview Centre Building was finished, it was decided to make it the forever home of the Pig and Whistle and it has stayed there since.” The very first Pig and Whistle was a fundraiser to help pay for the centre – the lot had been purchased but there was no building on it. “Our founding members were of a generation that believed fully in pitching in and doing what they could to help pay for the materials required to build the centre,” says Schrader. “Their ‘can-do’ attitude and vision made our centre what it is today.” She explains how that spirit is still alive and well, with monthly fundraising breakfasts, parties, silent auctions, yard sales and Pig and Whistle shows to cover their costs and expenses. While the show has deep-set roots in their past, the Pig and Whistle has continued to evolve each year. It was always a three-act variety musical, though the show, in its original format, had separate skits and the intermissions

featuring a live band, with Anglebay musicians, so people could dance. Today however, the show is more of a musical play, explains Schrader. The audience of the Pig and Whistle has also evolved. What was once a 90-person audience for a one-time show is now a 1,080person audience with a total of eight shows. One person could never pull off an event like this, which is why there is a whole army of people behind the scenes. The Anglebay Entertainers cast is about 30-members strong. Added to this list are the food prep crew, stage hands, the makeup and hair team, script writers, sound and lighting techs, costume production crew, director and many others who put

their time into making the event the best it can be. With so much help, it really is no surprise that the show is performed in front of a sold-out crowd every year. It is because of this popularity that organizers have decided to add another matinee to their list of performances this year, as well as three evening performances. It is hoped these additions will alleviate some of the waitlists experienced in the past. The group also invites the public to view their dress rehearsal on a ‘per-donation’ basis, allowing those on a limited budget to enjoy the show. The Pig and Whistle is a family show suitable for all ages. Refreshments will be offered between the first and second acts, includ-

ed in the price of the ticket. The bar is also open for the evening performances. Coffee or tea by donation or an ice-cream float for a nominal fee will be served at the matinees. The event runs April 18 to 27, with some events already being sold out.

Bros bring bluegrass to Chase A bluegrass favourite will be taking time out of their busy crossCanada tour schedule to provide a little traditional entertainment at the Chase Community Hall April 10. The Spinney Brothers will be making their way from one ocean to the next as they travel west to share their many musical talents. The band, who claims Annapolis Valley, Nova Scotia as their home, debuted their first album in 1992 and has since made their presence known on an international level. Their first album showcased what they describe as a tight brother duet vocal style that was immediately recognized for its energetic and distinctive sound. Since then, the band has released a total of eight albums, with a ninth on its way. The album, titled No Borders, is set to hit the airwaves in May and has many talking. First generation bluegrass legends have been a very important influence on the band, but the true source of the magic comes directly from their own lives and experiences. The group even cites their local heritage as one of the many contributors.

The band uses these resources to effortlessly intertwine the sounds of past and present into a new and unique style of bluegrass. Allan Spinney, Rick Spinney, Gary Dalrymple and Darryl Hebb each play their own distinctive role in the band’s sound. With the brothers’ duet singing, backed by the supportive and complimentary instrumentation, the band was able to formulate what they believe is a truly recognizable sound. The Spinney Brothers believe in the freshness and excitement of traditional bluegrass music. Surely they are doing something right, as the band has taken home more than 30 different awards including mul-

Winter break-ins occupy RCMP RCMP BRIEFS Chase RCMP have kept busy over the last few weeks, with multiple break-ins and some impaired driving situations taking up most of that time.

Break-in

On March 23, Chase RCMP received a complaint of a break and enter at a seasonal residence in the 5000 block of Squilax-Anglemont Road. A shed on the property was broken into sometime over the winter, and  old hand tools, paddles and a bicycle were stolen.  Police have no suspects, and are encouraging the public to come forward with any information

one minor infraction was noted.

Impaired

Thwarted

On March 24, at 4 p.m., police stopped a vehicle near the intersection of Turtle Valley Road and Squilax-Anglemont Road. The driver showed signs of impairment and, after failing the Approved Screening Device, he was given a 90-day immediate roadside prohibition and his vehicle was impounded for 30 days. After being served, the driver was taken home by police.

Road check

On the evening of March 24, Chase RCMP set up a road safety check on Squilax-Anglemont Road at Imai Road in Scotch Creek. Approximately 20 vehicles were checked, and only

During the evening of March 28, unknown persons attempted to break into a residence in Pritchard. The owner was home at the time, but when other family members returned home just after midnight, they noticed a window had been pried off its track.  Nothing was stolen, and the owner believes he may have unwittingly interrupted the break-in.  There are no suspects in this case.  

Tools taken

On March 28, Chase RCMP received a complaint of a break and enter to three sheds on another seasonal property in the 5000 block of Squilax-Anglemont  Road.    The sheds were broken

into sometime over the winter, and various hand tools were stolen. There are currently no suspects in this case and, as with the March 23 report,  anyone with pertinent information is asked to contact police.

Road risk

Police arrested a man on April 1, at about 5:40 p.m. for impaired driving at Skwlax Subdivision Road and Holding Road, after numerous witnesses reported a vehicle being driven erratically while children were on the road.  The man was given a  90day immediate roadside prohibition,  a  30-day vehicle impoundment and a violation ticket for  having no insurance. Because of the man’s state of intoxication at the time, he was lodged in Chase cells overnight.

Doug was born and raised in the Christopher Lake, SK area with four brothers and one sister. He raised his family while working at the pulp mill in Hinton, AB for 34 years. Doug lived all of his retirement years in his home at Sunny Brae on the Shuswap Lake. During his retirement Doug took great pleasure in having his family and friends gather in his home and yard to play and visit. He enjoyed his almost daily visits to the local restaurant to “solve the world’s problems” with his buddies. Many thanks to Dr. Bell, Doug’s physician for 20 years. Funeral services will be held at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, 1400 – 20th St. NE, Salmon Arm, BC on Thursday, April 4th at 11 a.m. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations in Doug’s name may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation, 729 Victoria St., Kamloops, BC, V2C 2B5.

PRATT, FREDERICK “BRIAN” May 7, 1924 - March 26, 2013 Born in Birtle, Manitoba and passed in Salmon Arm, BC. He was predeceased by his parents John and Kathleen, brothers Dennis and David, and sister Eileen; and survived by his brother Ed, his children Ruth (Carl), John (Helga), Harry (Josie), Marie (Ray) and grandchildren Steve, Scott, Kathryn, Megan, Harrison, Keani, Subrina and Arthur. He served in WWII as a member of the RCAF in the 405 and 419 squadrons and flew on 21 Pathfinder missions over Germany. On May 7th, 1945 as a part of Operation Manna he flew over Holland dropping food to the Dutch. It was the end of the war and his 21st birthday. He said, “It was the best birthday party ever”. He also served 27 years as a member of the RCMP in Ontario and British Columbia. As an active member of the RCMP Veterans he was granted a lifetime membership which was an honor he was very proud to receive. Brian had many interests throughout his life but he will probably be best remembered for his musical talents and wonderful booming voice. He was a gentle soul who had a strong passion for life, family, love and spirituality. He was beloved by his family and was blessed to have so many friends whose lives he truly touched. A celebration of his life is planned for 1:00 p.m., Saturday, May 11th, 2013 at the Carlin Hall, 4051 Trans-Canada Hwy, Tappen, BC. It will be a potluck event with music and tributes in his memory. Arrangements entrusted to FISCHER’S FUNERAL SERVICES & CREMATORIUM LTD., Salmon Arm, (250) 833-1129. EMAIL condolences and share memories through Brian’s obituary at www.fischersfuneralservices.com.
