Candidates hit the campaign trail By Richard Rolke BLACK PRESS

Shuswap candidates didn’t waste any time hitting the hustings as the provincial election campaign began Tuesday. “I’m driving around and putting up big signs,” said Tom Birch, B.C. Conservative candidate. “We are absolutely ready to go.” Birch’s focus leading up to May 14 will be creating awareness about himself and his party. “My priority is knocking on doors and engaging people wherever they are,” he said. Birch says many constituents are not happy with

the Liberals or the NDP and they are looking for a choice. “We have to let people know how strong we are as a party. I am already ahead of Greg Kyllo and it will be a race between me and Steve Gunner,” he says. “The NDP and the Liberals have the same philosophy of raise taxes, raise spending and raise debt.” NDP candidate Steve Gunner says the campaign launch was a formality. “We were ready a month ago,” said Gunner, who has played an active role in training office volunteers. Like the other candidates, Gunner expects to spend

time touring the constituency. “We need to get out to people and find out what they want from their government,” he said. “I’m hearing people feel let down and they are looking for a change for the better.” With long-time MLA George Abbott retiring, Gunner says the Shuswap is open for all parties. “I feel very confident but it will be close,” he said. Liberal Greg Kyllo has also embraced the campaign. “I have a great team and lots of volunteers want to participate,” he said.

“I will meet with people in the constituency. I am trying to get a good feeling and understanding for the riding and there’s lots to learn.” Kyllo is pleased with the response he is getting so far. “The B.C. Liberals have done a terrific job guiding the province during the economic downturn. There is lots of support out there,” he said. Kyllo is confident about his chances. “George Abbott has done a terrific job representing the riding. I am looking forward to carrying on his footsteps,” said Kyllo. Chris George, Green Par-

ty candidate, is ready for his first election run. “I need to talk to people on their doorsteps. I have done some canvassing already and I have some good volunteers,” he said. “The response to the Green message is off the charts. People want a change and they are simply fed up.” George is confident the Greens will be a viable option for residents not happy with the other parties. “It’s going to be a lot closer than people think,” he said. “Some dissatisfied Liberals will come to the Greens because we are a pragmatic party financially.”

Motorists rescue woman in nick of time By Tracy Hughes

MARKET NEWS STAff

With only seconds to spare, two drivers managed to subdue a knife-wielding woman and pull her from her burning vehicle at the side of the Trans-Canada Highway just east of Squilax last Wednesday night. One of the two men involved in the rescue was News photographer James Murray, who happened to be driving to Chase that evening and, instead of his usual role of recording the news, found himself at the centre of the incident. The lone occupant of the vehicle was a female driver, who had previously been reported to be driving erratically in Chase. At approximately 7:30 p.m., RCMP received reports that the vehicle had crashed, rolled to the side of the highway and caught fire. Murray did not see the crash, but arrived at the scene soon after, where he joined another couple who had stopped to offer assistance. The woman was on the phone after calling 911, and Murray and the other man ran to the vehicle to check on the driver. “I saw the woman, because the car was flipped on its side; she was sitting on the door,” says Murray. “I could see the knife in her hand, she was throwing things around inside the vehicle. I tried to talk to her, but she started stabbing at the upholstery. I could see she had slash marks on her arms.” Murray kept talking to the woman, trying to calm and encourage her to get out of the vehicle, which had begun to smoke. “I did all I could, but I couldn’t calm her down. I tried to tell her to get out, that the

He climbed up on top of the vehicle and went in through the driver’s side window — even though she still had the knife,” says Murray. “I can’t believe how much guts that guy had to climb in there, into that car with her still holding the knife. It was like in that moment we looked at each other and knew if

we didn’t get her out, she was going to burn to death, but he was the guy who just made the decision to go in.” The man began kicking out the passenger window. “Suddenly, her hand was there,” says Murray. “I grabbed her wrist and bent it back and she let go of the knife.” Now that the woman was unarmed, Murray was able to drag the woman out of the broken window. The woman still struggled, so Murray was only able to drag the woman a short distance. But then additional help

arrived in the form of a police officer, who was able to handcuff the woman and helped Murray drag her farther away from the burning car. Chase RCMP report the woman was taken by ambulance to Royal Inland Hospital in Kamloops with undetermined injuries. They suspect the involvement of alcohol as a factor. Afterward, Murray sat on the bumper of the fire truck, feeling in shock. He and the other man were taken to separate police cars to provide statements. “I never saw the other guy again and that’s my biggest regret, I never got his name. I wanted to shake his hand. What he did was amazing.” While Chase RCMP have the Salmon Arm man’s name, due to privacy regulations they can not release it without his permission. Sgt. Gary Heebner of the Chase RCMP acknowledge the valuable role both motorists played in rescuing the woman. “The RCMP are grateful for the assistance of the motorists who stopped at the scene. Without their willingness to assist despite the obvious dangers, the outcome may have been very different in this case,” says Heebner. Murray hopes to one day be able to talk with the other motorist. “I’ve been haunted since, because I know that if it had been me by myself, I couldn’t have done it, I wasn’t strong enough to save her on my own. He was younger and stronger than me and he made that decision to climb in. I want to be able to tell him he’s a hero.”

Wolf believed responsible for Sicamous-area livestock attacks By Lachlan Labere

MARKET NEWS STAff

A Cambie-Solsqua resident is hopeful that whatever has been attacking her animals has moved on. Willow Mist Farm owner Kagen Stephenson says the attacks began on Jan. 7, when one of two alpacas she was boarding was killed. The predator returned on Feb. 28 and killed the second alpaca. Ste-

phenson’s guard llama was targeted, but not killed in a March 3 attack, and her male stud llama was emasculated, but survived a struggle with the predator on March 15. Initially, the attacker was believed to be a cougar. But tracks found later indicated something else, a large canine, likely a wolf. “The conservation officer came out and then we found the

tracks and he said it’s definitely canine from the laceration marks on the neck, and he figures it’s a wolf that’s split off from the rest of the pack…,” says Stephenson. “The tracks from one animal were huge. I have dogs here and everything, and that’s what I said to the conservation officer, and he said you haven’t got a dog here big enough to leave tracks like that.”

Stephenson was advised to pen her animals at night and leave a motion-sensing light on, not so much to scare the predatory animal, but to alert her of its presence. So far, the predator not returned. “I’ve been here 17 years and I have peacocks and chickens running around loose, and sheep, and I’ve never lost a thing in all these years,” says Stephenson.

Conservation officer Brian Smith believes the predator was a wolf. He says they are known to be in the area, and that their numbers appear to be on the rise in the Southern Interior. “Wolves have been out in the Malakwa-Sicamous area forever,” says Smith, noting the animals will spend the winter in the valley bottoms where they may come into conflict with livestock.

“We haven’t had many reports of wolves killing stock in that area,” says Smith. “Bears and cougars are more common than wolves. But it’s not unexpected that it happens on occasion.” Smith says he’s seen wolves up to 140 pounds, with an average weight of 110. Stephenson says she was warned that if it was indeed a wolf attacking her animals, it

may return next year. For the time being, she’s doing what she can to protect her fourlegged friends. “My vet bills have been absolutely through the roof because I’ve had them out to treat these animals and get them stitched up,” she says. “It’s been an absolute nightmare – not one I’m going to want to continue happening.”

Literacy project funding restored

By Barb Brouwer

MARKET NEWS STAff

It was a roller-coaster ride that ended on a high. Several weeks ago, the Literacy Alliance of the Shuswap Society (LASS) was looking at closing. But thanks to strong community support, the efforts of local MLA George Abbott, federal dollars and successful grant-writing, the alliance is on solid ground and happily planning to expand services. “We went from having zero dollars and thinking, are we packing up here, to getting $80,000 – all in a couple of weeks,” said an excited LASS co-ordinator Jennifer Findlay last Thursday.

The ride began in mid-January when Abbott presented the Literacy Alliance with a premier’s award for “outstanding achievement, innovative practice and excellence in literacy.” Proud to be acknowledged for their stellar efforts, LASS officials were stunned when, two weeks later, they were informed that due to provincial cutbacks, $30,000 in co-ordinator funding would not be available for the coming year. Abbott, a strong advocate for literacy programs, went to bat for the alliance, taking his concerns directly to the minister of education. With a few more bumps in the ride, res-

Jennifer Findlay toration of literacy funding was confirmed at the end of March. A relieved Findlay, was further delighted by an April 9 press release issued by MP Colin Mayes’ Vernon office, confirming $20,100 in federal funding to the Literacy Alliance of the Shuswap Society – “to support social participation and inclusion of seniors by setting up a new computer lab and

volunteer opportunities for one-on-one tutoring.” LASS is partnering with the Seniors Dropin Centre on Hudson Avenue to create the Cyber Seniors Computer Tutoring Centre. “We’ll provide volunteers and training and are hoping to get it started in May and June,” said Findlay. “We’ll tweak it over the summer and run it full bore in the fall.” And there was more good news: BC Community Gaming came through with $32,000, which is earmarked partly to cover children’s literary programs, including the One-To-One Children’s Literacy program in 15 Shuswap

elementary schools. “My job is evolving into grant writing and supervising, just because we’re growing,” said an elated Findlay. “The other part of the gaming money will support family literacy programs such as Unplug and Play, Family Literacy Week, Books for Babies and the Spread the Word Book Exchange.” Findlay is particularly happy because the funding supports the position of a Shuswap Community Association for Living client who keeps the Spread the Word bins in both malls, the rec centre, Salvation Army, Junglemania and Java Jive well-supplied with books.

Our one-of-a-kind businesses are an integral part of the distinctive character of this place. Our tourism businesses also benefit. “When people go on vacation they generally seek out destinations that offer them the sense of being someplace, not just anyplace.” ~ Richard Moe, President, National Historic Preservation Trust

Reduce environmental impact: Locally owned businesses can make more local purchases requiring less transportation and generally set up shop in town or city centers as opposed to developing on the fringe. This generally means contributing less to sprawl, congestion, habitat loss and pollution.

Burns Lake company buys Canoe sawmill equipment By Martha Wickett

MARKET NEWS STAff

Sawmill equipment from Canoe Forest Products Ltd. now resides in Burns Lake. Rick Scott, chief financial officer of Gorman Bros. Lumber Ltd., which took over Federated Co-operatives forest products operation in Canoe last year, confirmed that about half the sawmill equipment has been sold. “The majority of it went to Babine Forest Products in Burns Lake,” Scott said, noting it will be used to replace equipment that burned during the sawmill fire of January 2012. Scott said Gorman Bros.’ intention was never to operate the Ca-

noe sawmill. “There’s never been any comment on it being operated again. It’s always been, ‘no it won’t be.’ There was never a promise out there we have not lived up to.” The sawmill hasn’t operated since December 2007 due to unfavourable market conditions. “The sawmill equipment was sold so we can reap some cash to invest in the plywood plant,” Scott explained. The funds will go towards the purchase of a lathe line for the plant. “We will be installing it over the next year… so we’re just changing the investment from sawmill to plywood.” The other half of the

sawmill equipment in Canoe is still for sale, Scott noted. He said the Burns Lake sale was a fair deal. “It worked for everyone involved and provided continued employment up there.” One other change, he said, is that a group of companies is working together, which is helping to utilize the plant. A kiln in Canoe is being used in winter to dry lumber coming from Downie Timber in Revelstoke, continuing on to a planer mill in Westbank, B.C. or Oroville, Washington. Scott adds that, overall, the Gorman family members “are just ecstatic with the work force up there (in Canoe).”

Conservatives reach new low with ads

One would hope our local Conservative MP would issue a statement denouncing her party’s pathetic response to the weekend election of Justin Trudeau as leader of the Liberal Party of Canada. No sooner had Trudeau won the leadership than the Conservative braintrust had ads out, belittling Trudeau’s experience, decrying his attendance in the House of Commons and appropriating video footage of him at a charity event to attack him. The ads feature a mocking voice making fun of Trudeau’s array of jobs, including that of a drama teacher. In the Conservative mindset, then, teachers are not qualified to be prime minister, a job apparently reserved for policy wonks with economic degrees. The ads use images of a shirtless Trudeau in an attempt to further the Conservatives’ argument the Quebec MP is all style and no substance. The fact these were taken at a charity event to raise money for and awareness of prostate cancer — the very disease that contributed to the death of Trudeau’s father, Pierre Elliot Trudeau — only adds to the utter tastelessness of such an attack. But, this is par for the course with the Conservatives, who attacked Stéphane Dion as lacking the capacity to be a leader and who attacked Thomas Mulcair when he succeeded Jack Layton as NDP leader. The next federal election is two years from now. Could the Conservatives not have impressed and surprised us all by taking out ads congratulating Trudeau on his triumph and promising a fair, but tough battle? Would such an ad have not created a buzz that would have done wonders for the Conservatives? Instead, they decide to remain nasty and negative. -Kamloops This Week

OpiniOn

Astral fragment spurs imagination Sometimes, when I look up into the night time sky, I am overwhelmed by a sense of wonder at the vastness of the universe. On a clear night, the sheer magnitude in the number of stars that are visible seems so absolutely, incredibly amazingly impressive – especially in light of the fact that what we see is but an infinitesimally small number of the countless millions of stars, planets and celestial bodies out there. It is at times like this that I feel rather humble. Other times, especially on those occasions when I just happen to look up and see something like a shooting star arcing its way across the horizon, or a particularly bright distant star blinking away as if it were sending out some coded message, well, on those occasions my sense of wonder turns to wondering about what really lies out there and whether or not we are alone in this vast universe. I often think back to the time when I was a kid and I found a rock out in the mid-

The GreAT OuTdOOrs James Murray dle of a farm field. It was unlike any rock I’d ever seen. It was flat and smooth on the top and bottom, and sort of porous and bubbly looking in between – sort of like an Aero chocolate bar. I reasoned that it was probably a meteorite that had landed on earth from somewhere in outer space. I hauled that sucker a couple of miles back to my house. It must a have weighed 25 pounds or more, which was a fair amount considering back then I only weighed 75 pounds or so soaking wet. The next day I went to the library to look up meteorites. However, no matter how many books I went

through, I could not find anything that resembled my meteorite. Years later in junior high I learned that it was only a chunk of limestone that had probably been deposited in the field by a glacier during the ice age. I still have the stupid thing. It is what astronomers quite often refer to as a “meteor-wrong.” The word meteor comes from the Greek word meteoron, which roughly translated means phenomenon in the sky. It is used to describe the streak of light produced as matter falls into the Earth’s atmosphere creating a temporary incandescence resulting from atmospheric friction. A meteoroid is matter that is too small to be called an asteroid or a comet, while a meteorite is a meteoroid that has managed to reach the surface of the Earth without being completely vaporized. In the years since finding my meteor-wrong, I have read a lot about meteors and meteorites. I have also acquired a fair collec-

tion of real meteorite fragments. It blows me away to think that the tiny piece of matter I am holding in the palm of my hand came from somewhere out there, somewhere out in that vast universe. It is hard for me to wrap my mind around the idea that somewhere, way back in time, a star exploded and sent pieces flying out into the cosmos, and that a piece of that star travelled through space for tens of thousands, perhaps millions of years, before making its way into the Earth’s atmosphere where it began to burn up and become reduced in size until it landed unceremoniously and tiny on the surface of a planet in a galaxy known as the Milky Way. Sometimes, when I look up into the night time sky, I cannot help but wonder if somewhere out there in the cosmos, someone else on the far side of the universe, isn’t just maybe holding a fragment of the same star that flew off in a different direction.

View point

MP’s Arctic vision out of synch with reality It is nice to hear that Colin Mayes is so optimistic about the current Arctic ice conditions in his April 12 article; however, the facts indicate otherwise. Colin is our federal politician, yet he fails to provide proper facts to his constituents that the Arctic ice is melting, and at a greater rate than ever before.  It is recorded by our own Canadian Ice Service at www.ec.gc.ca/glacesice and “The minimum sea ice cover (for 2012)

was the second lowest observed.” Check it for yourself, and also check the National Snow and Ice Data Centre for North America http:// nsidc.org/arcticseaicenews (March 2013), and “Oldest ice continues to decline,” and “While multiyear ice used to cover up to 60 per cent of the Arctic Ocean, it now covers only 30 per cent.” The oldest ice (fourplus years old) now comprises only five per cent of the ice in the

Arctic Ocean – far less than during the 1980s when old ice covered roughly 25 per cent. As a member of the Canadian Ice Patrol in the 1960s, I personally observed the vast quantities of old, hard, multiyear ice in the Arctic. At that time, the northwest passage by ship was a risky venture, even when escorted by our Canadian icebreakers.  During the last several years the northwest passage has been almost ice free, and in some

years has been ice free. Is this just another tactic by the Conservatives to pump misinformation to the public so they can reduce budgets for current Arctic programs, enforcing Canadian Arctic sovereignty, surveillance, or pollution control?  Or does it just show his plain lack of knowledge in this area?   It is comforting for our local MP to be so optimistic but, unfortunately, the actual facts do present us with a bit

What the institute actually says is satellite observations show that mass loss of the ice sheet is increasing each

year and more rapidly than predicted. (www. dmi.dk/dmi/en/index/ klima/ice_sheet_modelling.htm). Climate change has been shown to have contributed to the mountain pine beetle epidemic which has devastated the forest industry in Mr. Mayes’ own riding. Greg O’Neil

was reached on Feb. 28 and it was the fifth lowest sea ice winter in the past 35 years. A decline in the sea ice cover in winter is thus a manifestation of the effect of the increasing green-

South ShuSwap Community digging expansion

Okanagan-Shuswap MP Colin Mayes was in South Shuswap last week, handing out money on behalf of Lynne Yelich, Minister of State for Western Economic Diversification Support for upgrades to the Cedar Heights Community Centre amounted to $166,475 from the government’s Community Infrastructure Improvement Fund (CIIF). “By improving facilities such as this, we are helping to boost economic activity while improving local infrastructure,” said Mayes. “With today’s investment, our government is demonstrating our commitment to creating jobs, growth and long-term economic prosperity.” The funds will be used to add wheelchairaccessible washrooms, a kitchen, a storage room and mobility friendly staircase. The lobby, office, and storage areas will be reconfigured and the roof, sound and HVAC systems will be upgraded. “I would like to express our sincere appreciation for this important federal government investment in our community,” said Jean-Luc Desgroseilliers, vice-

n Ron Janke, Kathleen Willis, Jean-Luc Desgroseilliers and Columbia Shuswap Regional District South Shuswap Director Paul Demenok, with Okanagan-Shuswap MP Colin Mayes operating the excavator, officially begin the expansion to the Cedar Heights Community Centre, a project facilitated by a $166,475 federal grant through the Community Infrastructure Improvement Fund. president of the Cedar Heights Community Association. “The community centre has been a local hub of social, recreational and educational activities for more than 36 years. “This funding will allow us to proceed with much-needed facility renovations and accessibility upgrades. “This assistance is also a tangible recognition of the dedication of the numerous volun-

teers who support the association and community centre (more than 7,200 volunteer hours in 2012). “As a result, we will be able to much better serve our community and meet the needs of our increasing number of programs and activities.” In Economic Action Plan 2012, the federal government announced further support to help communities across

the country modernize their infrastructure. “Our government committed $150 million over two years for the fund,” says Mayes. “The fund supports projects that look to improve existing community infrastructure accessible for use by the public, such as community centres, recreational buildings, local arenas, cultural and other community facilities.”

#1 - 480 Harbourfront Drive, N.E., Salmon Arm

To the Community of Blind Bay, Area C residents, and all concerned citizens:

I write in response to a Salmon Arm Observer and Shuswap Market News article, dated April 3rd and 5th, 2013 that pertains to our family’s property in Blind Bay. Blind Bay Resort has applied to complete an unfinished 2.45 acre portion of land, together with an adjacent ½ acre parcel, to generous RV/ park model trailer sites. I find it interesting that the article is headlined “A Storm is Brewing” over a small area that has been historically used for RV camping, boat trailer storage, and a commercial marina and boat launch dating back to 1972. This property is not the cause of a storm – unless people choose to make it one for their own interests. When my wife, family and I came to Blind Bay in 2005, we purchased an outdated seasonal campground that was sorely in need of updating, and was the scene of late-night summer revelry in a quiet residential community. As new owners, we jumped in energetically to repair, replace and improve upon a facility that could not safely deliver potable water, had failed septic and electrical systems, and an environmental footprint that was less than acceptable. This work was costly, and undertaken specifically on the understanding we could achieve a use of the beachfront lands to help fund it. We’ve invested millions of dollars, much of which comes from a private equities lender and their family investors from Kelowna, who believe in us and the project. All our family’s net worth is invested in this property, and we’ve hung on through a challenging economic and personal time. The only ‘storm’ brewing is the reality we can no longer proceed without help from this community, to simply finish what we started. As the article indicates, we face a very vocal opposition that does not check its facts, refuses to consider the family they attack, nor the well-being of a community should we fail to hold on. Friends, we are asking for 19 waterfront recreational lots that can accommodate either an RV or park model cottage, to replace the historical camping that has occurred there for over 40 years. We are NOT asking for a residential community as alluded to, apart from wishing to keep our resort open to local and migrant trades, to conform to changing electrical standards, and to accommodate winter occupants. A single family residential status is required by the CSRD to continue uses that include RV accommodations for work crews, such as those who stayed with us while building the Adams Lake bridge, sawmill upgrades, and more recently, the four-lane and underpass improvements to the Trans Canada. We are the only local resort offering winterized water and sewer, with the convenience of stores and dining in the immediate vicinity. It is our position this is a necessary and welcome provision, that all would agree is beneficial. We also need to set up a ‘residential’ status to address changes to the electrical code that will affect park models and accessory shed wiring. We have imposed setback, height and land coverage restrictions, plus will continue resort bylaws to control occupancy and structures, to maintain our recreational theme and business model. We wish to move our moorage into deeper water, and gain a few more slips for the summertime peak season. This relocation will improve the foreshore wave action needed to clean the beach area, and

will improve the safety for our swimming children. Temporary slips will remove the conflict that exists between our paying guests and the boaters who randomly tie up to access the store. It will take our ‘traffic’ further away from the adjacent neighbors, and improve their privacy. A raised walkway will address Best Management Practice guidelines, and provide a desirable community promenade. We have placed careful thought into how best to protect the foreshore, while continuing our uses that are necessary and important. We do and will continue to protect a sensitive painted turtle habitat at the foot of the KOA road. A Comprehensive Development zone will guarantee our uses as specified. And we’ve proposed a public access at our expense. I will host a public meeting to discuss this in greater detail, and will of course be present when the actual public hearing is called. We will provide a direct mailer, and will have a full disclosure of our plans available at the property. I will be posting and updating all pertinent details on our web page, www. blindbayresort.com, for your perusal. Just follow the link! I have requested meetings with SWAT and SLIPP to continue our transparency and I am awaiting their response. I may also be contacted directly to discuss concerns or explain details, and to conduct a personal tour at your request. In short, we have asked anyone to show us where we have failed to represent the best interests of Blind Bay residents, businesses, and clients who may be affected by our use of this land and the Shuswap Lake. The proposed new OCP for Area C does not allow for new waterfront development outside of a single home on a 2.5 acre parcel, that according to a few, should apply to us now… regardless of consequence to our family or this community. Blind Bay Resort provides an important access to the water, and is one of the very last entry points that bring future buyers to our community. We are tax payers, our guests and owners do nothing but spend, and we have a right to exist. The OCP should recognize this, and provide for the improvements we intend. Please ask the questions, do your due diligence, and then participate! If you do not write your support, or show up at our meetings, we may lose this critical battle to survive. Our family needs your help now. It’s been 6 long years since we initiated this process, and our daughter’s remarkable stability affords us this chance to finish well. Your letters must be personally addressed, and emailed to Mr. Paul Demenok, Area C Director, CSRD, at pdemenok@csrd.bc.ca, or faxed to 250-832-3375. I would appreciate a copy as well, so that I may respond to any comments or concerns that you may express. I may be reached by email, at dbaskill@hotmail.com, cell at 250-803-2595, or in person by appointment at our resort. We have nothing to hide, and everything to lose or gain by your actions.

DOUBLE UP REBATE EVENT March 25 - April 27, 2013

Eagle Bay Community Hall organizers are prepping for a busy summer, kicking the season off with a coffee house April 27. Dave Reniak has been actively taking part in many of the hall’s events since 2004 and he boasts about the quality of entertainment the coffeehouse has been able to produce each month. “There is never one set main act,” he says, explaining that organizers really just wait and hope like heck people will sign up. But a lack of entertainers has never been an issue in the 10 years the coffeehouses have been running. And, the usual 10 acts are primarily musical in nature but have also included poetry and other art forms. Reniak says hall organizers support a wide variety of talent. One act that stands out in his mind was a woman who sang a capella. He says that even without music her voice made the hair on the back of his neck stand up. Each coffeehouse features three booked acts, with other slots filled quickly with various other performers. The Stevens family from Eagle Bay are among the regular performers, while many others travel from other areas to share their love of music and the coffeehouse scene. Regular MC Reniak also performs every month, showing off his skills both vocally and instrumentally. “With such a wide variety of talent in the area, you just never know what you are going to get for the $2 admission fee,” he says, noting it is always well worth the money. Eagle Bay Hall Coffeehouses run at 7:30 p.m. on the fourth Saturday of the month, except in July, August and December. For more information, or if you are interested in performing, contact Reniak at 250-675-4850 or email him at dave_diane@live.ca. One popular Eagle Bay Hall event that won’t be happening this year is the annual Hamsters Dinner Theatre due to volunteer burn-out. “Everyone just needs a rest,” says Reniak. The event is entirely volunteer-based, and despite not having the budget of a Broadway show, the group has been able to successfully entertain their full house for years. Reniak says they would receive plenty of positive feedback after each showing, and their fan base is ever growing. Reniak says the event will be back next year.

Seniors groups reap benefits from federal grants There are federal dollars on the horizon for several Shuswap seniors’ groups. On behalf of Minister of Human Resources and Skills Development, Diane Finley, and Minister of State (Seniors), Alice Wong, Okanagan-Shuswap MP Colin Mayes last week announced in excess of $100,000 to be directed to local seniors groups. The grants were: • $24,784 to Shuswap Theatre to renovate the washrooms and create a seniors theatre group to increase social participation by using theatre and drama to socialize. • $25,000 to the Seniors Fifth Avenue Activity Centre to upgrade the kitchen to allow current programming and activities to continue. • $25,000 for the Sorrento Drop In Society to replace gas stoves and a cooler for the kitchen to support seniors luncheons. • $16,205 to the Sunnybrae Seniors Society to replace the wheelchair ramp and complete a roof extension to offer access to dinners, crafts and games. • $20,100 to the Literacy Alliance of the Shuswap Society to support social participation and inclusion of seniors by setting up a new computer lab and volunteer opportunities for one-on-one tutoring. “Our government recognizes the diversity of skills, knowledge and experience that seniors contribute to our society and the economy,” said Mayes. “Through initiatives such as the New Horizons for Seniors Program, we are helping to ensure that seniors maintain a high quality of life and continue as active, participating members of their communities.” Since its inception, the New Horizons for Seniors Program has funded more than 12,200 projects in hundreds of communities across Canada. This year, the Government of Canada will provide more than $33 million in funding for approximately 1,750 community projects.

Don’t count the Conservatives out BC Views Tom Fletcher VICTORIA – As the B.C. NDP launched its election campaign last week with a package of income tax hikes, higher than those in the B.C. Liberals’ election budget of February, a third party leader toured the province with plans to get rid of the carbon tax. It’s not readily apparent from his recently released “fiscal framework” document, but B.C. Conservative leader John Cummins told me his plan to phase out B.C.’s carbon tax does not include raising income tax rates that were lowered to make the carbon tax “revenue neutral.” He predicts revenue growth. I reached Cummins in Prince George, where he was continuing his aggressive courtship of northern B.C. with an announcement that federal gas tax revenues would be redirected to a new fund for locally determined road improvements. Cummins has more good news for

the north: that’s where a regionally phased elimination of the carbon tax would begin. It’s also the area of thinnest population, meaning the impact on the B.C. treasury would be less. This is, after all, a tax budgeted to bring in $1.2 billion in the current year. The B.C. Conservatives continually remind people that the carbon tax falls disproportionately on rural, remote and particularly northern folks who face long distances, long winters, and public transit options ranging from slim to none. The B.C. Conservatives decry the population decline of rural B.C., with international immigration almost exclusively going to big cities, while temporary foreign workers increasingly fill agricultural and industrial jobs in the Interior. The party’s still-evolving platform echoes the NDP’s call for more skills training and increased completion rates for trade apprentices. Cummins is in favour of the proposed Northern Gateway oil pipeline and the massive buildup of infrastructure needed to add liquefied natural gas to B.C.’s energy export mix. He sees that industrial expansion as the path to shift popula-

tion growth beyond the south of the province. Cummins is surprisingly cool to one industrial project, the proposed Site C dam on the Peace River, calling himself undecided. He also sounds skeptical about the B.C. Liberal plan to extend B.C.’s electricity grid and use that to develop further independent power. This sounds to me like political positioning rather than economic analysis. An anti-Site C independent candidate has significant support in Peace River North, creating a three-way struggle for a key B.C. Conservative target. The B.C. Conservative platform also totals up the billions in long-term electricity contracts with private power producers and suggests the price for

this clean energy has been set too high. This is another echo of the NDP’s vague position. So if the B.C. Conservatives are gung-ho on oil and gas and think the carbon tax is a mistake, do they think there should be any effort to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions? Cummins sidestepped that question, preferring to talk about conventional air pollution, whether it’s in the Fraser Valley or as a byproduct of a northern industrial boom. As a long-time former Reform and Conservative MP, Cummins is acutely aware that the urban media will leap with extra vigour on any perceived gaffe of the right wing. Should a Conservative let slip that he’s skeptical about global warming, or

worse, express a rustic view on social issues, all hell would break loose. The B.C. Conservatives have started with the most detailed platform of any party. Don’t count them out.

INFORMATION DESIGNED TO PROMOTE AND ENHANCE YOUR WELLBEING

Coping with seasonal allergies The season of allergy-induced sniffles and other complications is right around the corner. If you are one of the millions of people affected by seasonal allergies that lead to nasal swelling, sneezing, watery eyes, and a scratchy throat, you may not be eagerly anticipating the warmer weather as much as others. Allergy research is ongoing, and in the future doctors may be able to prevent allergic reactions from occurring rather than treating the symptoms that ensue. Until then, you will have to work with the remedies that currently exist. These remedies include antihistamines, which can cause d a n g e r o u s interactions with other medications and may cause drowsiness. These side effects can be

dangerous for use in seniors. Consider these other options instead. * Drink plenty of fluids. Although liquids can’t wash the allergens out of your system, water, juice and clear broths can help loosen congestion.

Hot liquids can soothe inflamed membranes in the nose and throat. * Avoid allergens as much as possible. Check weather reports for the levels of particulates in the air and stay indoors if they are high.

Keep away from tall grasses and places with a lot of foliage. * Use the air conditioning. Rather than keeping the windows wide open, use an air conditioner and dehumidifier to

filter the air coming inside of the house and ensuring it is cool and dry. * Head to the beach. If you want to spend time outdoors, areas by the ocean will have pollen counts that are much lower than in mountainous areas. * Dry clothes indoors. Line-dried clothes may smell fresh, but they can bring molds and pollens indoors and exacerbate allergies. * Shower frequently. After being outdoors, take a shower to rinse off any allergens clinging to hair and skin. * Check with a doctor before mixing allergy medications with any prescriptions you are taking, ensure that they are safe to mix. If your doctor is unavailable, consult with a pharmacist about drug interactions.

George aspires to Green win By Lachlan Labere

MARKET NEWS STAff

Going just by his curriculum vitae, one might be surprised Chris George is running as the B.C. Green Party candidate for the Shuswap riding. George currently lives with his wife, Samara, and two children on a farm in the Notch Hill area, where they endeavour to live a sustainable lifestyle. “That’s something that my wife and I really believe in and that we try to live our lives by and why we’ve come out here…,” says George. “What happens when you live by a principal of sustainability instead of a principal of selfishness, basically, which is what our culture teaches us – everything is about money. Life is very different. We’ve gotten ourselves into a position where most people would say that we live in abject poverty, and yet we’re extremely happy, healthy, we grow much of our own food, we volunteer in our community, we try to live the principals, we try to ‘walk the talk.”’ Along with living sustainably, George and his wife are also university students and “aspiring authors.” Not long ago, however,

Boost your Business without Cutting your Prices Jeff Mowatt Customer Service Strategist Bestselling Author Certified Professional Speaker

“Our results using Jeff’s concepts have been tremendous, with overall sales up over 300% compared to last year.” Jim Bobst, Manager, CUETS

Smart business people know that your options to stand out from the competition are limited… Cut prices? Not very profitable. Improve product quality? Certainly, but that can take substantial time and money. The fastest, most cost-effective way to differentiate yourself is to focus on your service. Customer service can no longer be merely average or simply friendly; it needs to be remark-able. Here’s your opportunity to make that happen for your team…

Attend Jeff Mowatt’s half day seminar, “The Art of Customer Service… Influence with Ease” Jeff believes that today’s customers no longer value you as an information provider. For information, customers can search Google in less than a second and it’s free. Free is worthless. Fortunately however, there are 3 core elements that customers do want from you–better yet to receive them, they are willing to pay a premium. You’ll discover how to apply these 3 elements so you’re perceived less as an information provider or order-taker, and more as a Trusted Advisor. Plus much more.

Bonus– Observer subscribers can receive 10% off registration fee!

Trail work inspires pilot project use might have on local ecological communities, and make appropriate choices to limit those impacts,” says consulting biologist, Jeremy Ayotte, who developed the original environmental trail screening process with his colleague, noted plant biologist, Rachael Blotting, and trail alliance naturalist, John Coffey. The original environmental trail screening tool devised by Ayotte relied on a series of linked computer data tables. “The new version will utilize a collaborative software platform giving trail developers and stakeholders a step-by-step digital trail to collect and share critical information in a userfriendly and intuitive manner,” says designer, Louise Wallace, of Mediability Corporate Communications. The Shuswap Trail Alliance is looking for volunteer stewards interested in helping to test the revised tool.

The innovative work by the Shuswap Trail Alliance to better manage environmental impacts of recreational trails has caught provincial attention. In 2009, the Shuswap Trail Alliance developed an environmental trail screening protocol for use in the region thanks to funding through Western Economic Diversification Canada and the Southern Interior Development Initiative Trust. The Provincial Recreation Sites and Trails office recently recognized the importance of that original work, asking the Shuswap Trail Alliance to adapt the tool for a pilot study in other parts of the province. “We’re pleased to be working with trail alliance leadership on this important project,” said John Hawkings, provincial trails manager, who acknowledged environmental management has been identified as a top priority within the provincial trails strategy. “The idea is to understand the potential impacts increased recreational

Chase

Annual General Meeting and Open House

Avalanche blasts explained By Cavelle Layes

MARKet NeWS StAff

The loud bangs caused by controlled avalanche blasts in February were a result of the use of different and more powerful charges due to an emergency situation. Chase council and administrative staff met recently with Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure officials to discuss the blasts which had frightened a number of Chase residents earlier this year. While ministry officials did apologize for the inconvenience, confusion and fear that may have been caused by the unannounced blast, they explained that it was an emergency situation that could not be helped. The blasting team had been working on a job in Barrier when they received a call to head to Chase to deal with a potential avalanche risk. Avalanche technicians had been monitoring the area when they noticed that the slopes over Chase had begun to move. The blasting team had been carrying stronger charges for their job in Barrier and

switching them out would have required them to fly to Penticton before they could make their way to Chase. Due to the severity of the situation, the blasting team went directly to Chase, and proceeded to initiate a number of charges, eliminating the possibility of an avalanche. While the job was successful, officials say the use of stronger charges did result in a louder boom than would normally be heard in the area, and the time sensitivity of the situation did not allow them to get out early notice to residence in the area. The ministry said it does try to work with communities whenever it can to ensure that controlled blasts cause as little inconvenience as possible to residents. Avalanche technicians are constantly monitoring the slopes throughout British Columbia via computer, and sometimes send people up to the slopes to do testing. Officials said that whenever possible, the ministry tries to use the natural avalanche shoots that already exist to minimize impacts on the area and be as efficient as possible.

Phase two will widen a 7.5-kilometre section of Highway 1 to four lanes, with a gradeseparated interchange at Pritchard. This work is expected to improve safety and increase ca-

Golfing in the Seniors Games By Sarah MacMillan black press

Golfing used to be something that Inky Whalley only did on vacation, but after moving to Chase she became more involved in the sport. “I’ve always liked the outdoors, and my husband and I used to take the clubs on vacation. Than we moved to Chase and got involved,” said Whalley. “Plus, I live by the golf course.” Whalley first entered the B.C. Seniors games held in Kelowna. She has since participated in the ones in Prince George, Chillawack, Surrey and Castlegar. And there is a reason she keeps going back. “The Senior Games is about meeting new people and having a good time,” said Whalley. She also became the zone eight golf co-ordinator four years ago, meaning that while participating in the games herself, Whalley also makes posters,

phones those who participated the previous year and books the golf courses if needed. Each zone in B.C. can send two men and two women per age category per division, and no more than 12 men and 12 women can compete per division. Within the golf there are four divisions. Women’s division ‘A’ for golfers who have an index of 0-24.3, women’s division ‘B’ for golfers who have an index of 24.4-40.4, men’s division ‘A’ for golfers with an index of 0-20.0 and men’s division ‘B’ for golfers with an index of 20.136.4. However, though there are limitations to the number of people who can participate in golf, the co-ordinators do try to give everyone the chance to compete. “We try not to refuse anyone,” said Whalley. Golf participants at the games play in a 36-hole stroke event, meaning that two rounds of golf are played at one or more

18 hole golf courses and the number of strokes taken at each hole is counted. Gold, silver and bronze medals are then awarded to the golfers with the lowest net score and lowest gross score in each of the different categories. However, for Whalley, it’s not about placing.

“I use it as my recreation,” said Whalley. “The B.C. Seniors Games, to me, if you get a medal that’s a bonus. It’s really about meeting new people, having fun and two days of good golfing.” “I love being outside, and at the level I’m golfing, I just love the friendships.” For more informa-

Francis William Phillips

June 14, 1921 ~ March 10, 2013 Frank Phillips, age 91, of Williams Lake, BC, passed away on March 10, 2013 at Deni House. A graveside service took place March 14, 2013. Frank Phillips was born on June 14, 1921 in Ockbrook, near West Hallam, Derbyshire, England. At the age of 6 months, he moved with his parents Gwilym (W.D.) and Lucy (Flint) Phillips, to Deep Lake, near Paradise Valley, Alberta. Here they farmed for several years. In 1926 the family, which now included Frank’s sister Margaret, relocated to Chilliwack, BC. Upon his graduation from Chilliwack High School, Frank studied aeronautical engineering at Aero I.T.I. in Los Angeles, California and continued his education at Noorduyn Aviation in Montreal. During the war he was employed by Boeing in Vancouver and Seattle. On March 4, 1944, Frank married Joy Jones, of Eburne (now Richmond) BC. He joined the Navy and was shipped out to Sydney, Nova Scotia, and served time on the H.M.C.S. Discovery, on Atlantic convoy duty. After the war, Frank and Joy owned and operated two small grocery stores. Following this, Frank worked in the manufacturing of stainless steel machinery in Vancouver, and lived in Burnaby and Pitt Meadows. Frank took early retirement at the age of 50 in 1974 and he and his family moved to White Lake, near Salmon Arm, BC. It wasn’t long before he was approached to run for the Regional District. After election and re-election, Frank spent many years serving the community of Salmon Arm. He was chairman of ColumbiaShuswap Regional District, representing Area C, using his many talents and skills to focus on economic development. Frank was well respected for his contributions in the Shuswap area, and retired from this activity in March 1990, at which time they moved to Felker Lake near Williams Lake. They enjoyed many years at the lake. Recently, they moved into Williams Lake and loved the view from their new home where the chipmunks and the deer were frequent visitors. He was an unassuming man, who worked well with others and was able to bring out the best in people. The poems of Robbie Burns and Robert Service were amongst his favorites. Dad was proud to be a Canadian and he thought that we all owe something to our communities in return for the benefits we receive. He was and avid reader, and a life-long learner. Dad always enjoyed a good conversation and loved discussions, especially around the dinner table. He encouraged us to disagree, to question and to challenge the status quo. Dad was interested in what we were all doing... and more importantly, what we thought! He taught us to believe in ourselves, to stand up for ourselves, and to accept responsibility. Mom and Dad enjoyed their travels to Wales, England and to far off places such as Australia, New Zealand and Irian Jaya, New Guinea. Gardening was one of his greatest pleasures throughout his life. Frank was a student of the Bible and enjoyed leading Bible studies wherever they lived. His philosophy in life could be summed up in the words found in Micah 6:8: “...to act justly, and to love kindness and to walk humbly with God”. Frank will be remembered as a loving husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather. His devotion and faithfulness to the Lord is the legacy he leaves to us. Remembering Frank are Joy, his wife of 69 years and 4 children: Carol (Les) Westmacott, Nelson, BC and family: Marc (Nancy) Westmacott and children Caleb, Calla and Annika, Langley, BC; Caryn Westmacott, Vancouver, BC and David Westmacott, Kelowna, BC. Donna (Barry) Foulds, Salmon Arm, BC and family: Megan (Dave) Willms and daughter Nora, Vancouver, BC; Ian (Kristin) Foulds and family: Marin, Corban, Jeriah and Asher in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. Beth (Raymond) Todd, Whitehorse, Yukon and family: Eric (Kerry) Cheyne, Inuvik, NWT and Stuart Cheyne, Whitehorse, Yukon. John (Elaine) Phillips, New Westminster, BC and family: Paul Phillips, Abbotsford, BC and Joel Phillips, Port Moody, BC. Sister Margaret Harms, Tsacha Lake, BC and family; and sister-in-law Marjorie Dodge, Vernon, BC. A family gathering to honor Frank’s life will take place at a later date.

ARNOLD, MURIEL MAY (NEE PULLIN) FEBRUARY 10, 1925 – APRIL 9, 2013 Muriel May Arnold (nee Pullin) passed away peacefully in her sleep in the evening of April 9, 2013 at Hillside Village in Salmon Arm at the age of 88. Born in Thornbury England to Ivy and Jesse Pullin, she arrived in Canada in April 1925 at two months of age with her older sister Violet and her parents. They then embarked on the CP Trans-Continental train across Canada to homestead in Balmoral. Muriel was predeceased by her husband Frank in 1992, daughter Stella in 1972 and son Ricky in 1978 and grandchild Stacey 1984. She is survived by 6 children, Michael (Judy) of Revelstoke, Ron (Karen Warner) of Kelowna, Evelyn (Paul) Hundt of Kelowna, Barbara (Tim) Pennell of Clearwater, Mel (Linda) of Salmon Arm and Shelley (Terry) Colton of Williams Lake. Muriel will also be lovingly missed by 13 grandchildren and 18 great-grandchildren. Muriel loved and was loved back as a daughter, sister, wife, aunt, mother, grandmother, greatgrandmother and friend. In her later years the grandchildren and great grandchildren were her greatest joy. Mom took great pride in her family’s English heritage, their farming background and making the best of what they had. She was also proud of the fact that she started school at the age of 4 so that there would be enough pupils to keep the Balmoral school open. Mom and Auntie Violet lost their mother when mom was only 10 years old, so as pioneer girls they learned to do the baking and housework out of necessity. Mom’s baking only got better with time and was enjoyed by everyone, especially her pies, breads, chiffon cakes and cinnamon buns. Her homemaking skills also included knitting countless sweaters and hundreds of pairs of mittens for the kids and grandkids. Every one of us can remember making snowballs and snowmen wearing a pair of her knitted mittens. After the family farm was sold in 1971, Mom worked for a few years candling and packaging eggs in Sorrento and then a number of years at Sorrento Centre until she eventually retired. Retirement wasn’t the end of her activity though as she continued to sit on the Salmon Arm Fair Board, acted as strata council secretary and worked hard to get around seeing all of her grandkids. Mom loved playing softball and won a championship while living in Victoria in her teens. Watching baseball remained one of her favorite pastimes. She was like a kid in a candy shop the night she went to see the Arizona Diamondbacks play in Phoenix. Mom devoted much of her volunteer time to local children and youth programs. From the Notch Hill children’s Christmas fund to many years as a 4-H leader and councillor she helped many kids learn important life skills. She was very proud to have received her Canadian Citizenship in the Nation’s capital when she was chaperoning a group of 4-H members to Ottawa. She felt honoured when she was asked to cut the ribbon at the 100th celebration of the Salmon Arm Fall Fair. The family wishes to thank the many good friends Mom had in the Notch Hill, Sorrento area and at Macintosh Grove & Piccadilly Terrace. Your friendship meant a lot to Mom and to us as family as we knew you were all there for her. We would be unable to count the number of card games mom shared with friends in her 88 years. The family also thanks Dr. Lipsett (retired) who helped mom deliver most of us children into the world and the many health care workers who cared for mom at different times over the years. Our appreciation of our mom will be forever. When you were born, you were crying. And everyone around you was smiling. You lived your life so that when you died You’re the one who is smiling And everyone around you is crying. A celebration of Muriel’s life will be held at the Seniors 5th Avenue Centre (170 5th Ave. SE. Salmon Arm) on Saturday April 20th from 2-5 pm. Memorial donations in Muriel’s name can be made to either the Sorrento Centre, or the Alzheimer’s Society, Online condolences can be sent throughMuriel’s obituary at www.bowersfuneralservice.com Arrangements are in the care of Bower’s Funeral Services, Salmon Arm.

A healthy mouth part of a healthy pregnancy living Well There is nothing more precious than bringing a new life into the world. Teeth are not the first thing that comes to mind when thinking of pregnancy and the health of the soon-to-be mother and newborn child. However, dental care is an important part of a healthy pregnancy. Yes, it is safe to visit your dentist during your pregnancy for routine cleanings and checkups. It is important to let the dental office know you are pregnant so they can adjust your appointment and treatment plan to accommodate you and your baby. Healthy teeth and gums means less harmful bacteria to pass onto your baby. If you have tooth pain or an infection, be sure to see your dentist. Bacteria that cause gum disease have been linked to pre-term births and low birthweight babies.  What you eat during pregnancy helps keep you healthy and contributes to the growth and development of your baby. Vitamins and minerals found in healthy foods are important for normal tooth formation which starts as early as five weeks. You may need to eat frequently during your pregnancy. Snack on healthy foods like fresh

fruit and vegetables, dairy products, grains and meats rather than sweet or sticky foods that can increase your risk for tooth decay. Remember to cut down on sugar in tea and coffee and limit sugary drinks to mealtimes. Many pregnant women say they feel so ill that they don’t feel like eating, especially in the morning. Morning sickness does happen and it not only affects your desire to eat, it can also affect your teeth as well. If you throw up often, your stomach acids can break down your tooth enamel. After throwing up, the first thing you might want to do is reach for your toothbrush, but don’t! It is best to wait 30 minutes before brushing your teeth. Instead, rinse your mouth with water first, then rinse again with a fluoride mouth wash. The fluoride helps to re-mineralize your enamel. Cleaning your teeth daily is important. Hormones may cause your gums to swell and bleed more than they used to. Keep up with your daily routine of brushing twice daily with fluoride toothpaste and flossing once a day. You may want to rinse with salt water. If your gums should get

very sore and you do not want to brush, you should see your dentist or dental hygienist. Check out this health file for more information on oral health during pregnancy: http://

Government invests in shipbuilding and F35s mitted to the development of the F-35s, and are currently reviewing the costs and capability of this aircraft to ensure Canadians receive value for dollar. The

cost of replacing the F-18s is still $9 billion dollars for 65 aircraft. This has not changed. The procurement secretariat is also overseeing this purchase. Re-

member, the delivery of the aircraft is spread out over 20 years and the life cycle of the aircraft’s operational costs is spread over 42 years.

You can imagine the challenges for your government in making these types of purchases, but keep in mind the experience you had during your

last major purchase. It takes time and you make decisions on the best information you have. Currently, we are accumulating the information so that we

can make the best decisions on behalf of all Canadians. Our ministers are doing proper due diligence! -Colin Mayes, MP Okanagan-Shuswap

From the hill Colin Mayes I am certain that we all have experienced the challenges of making a major purchase in our lives. Whether a home, car, or even a savings investment, the actual cost is not easy to pin down with options to consider, financing costs and value for dollar. This is no different with government procurement on major items. I am certain you are aware of the large investment your government is making in equipping our Canadian Forces. After the last government’s 10 long years of capital neglect, your government has committed to ensuring our Canadian Forces are equipped to do the job of protecting us and our Canadian sovereignty. The amounts are staggering, but we are making certain that the purchases made will bring opportunities for Canadian jobs and businesses. The National Shipbuilding Procurement Strategy will provide 15,000 jobs for Canadians. The two shipyards, one in Vancouver and one in Halifax, were the successful bidders. The budget to acquire these ships is $2.6 billion and it will not change. The cost to operate and maintain these ships is $150 million per year over 30 years. Currently, the builders are at the design stage. Our government has set up a secretariat to oversee this procurement to ensure it is done professionally and without political interference. The same can be said for the procurement of aircraft to replace the F-18s that have come to the end of their life cycle. We have com-
