’Backs get new owners Hockey: Troy Mick to become coach, GM.

By Martha Wickett OBSeRVeR STAFF

Save for a few formalities, the future of Salmon Arm’s Junior A hockey franchise has been secured. The Salmon Arm SilverBacks announced Friday that owners Randy and Terry Williams have agreed to a deal in principle to sell the club to a new ownership group led by current general manager Troy Mick. “It’s huge,” said a pleased Mick last week. “Finally. It’s been a lot of work to try to get it... Now I am happy to say we can officially say we have a deal.” The transfer of the franchise is scheduled to take place today, but members of the new group won’t be named or introduced until early next week, following the SilverBacks Spring Camp now underway at the Shaw Centre. With the new ownerTroy ship group comes the Mick loss of head coach Scott ’backs owner Robinson and the reinstatement of Mick behind he bench. Mick said he’s disappointed to see his friend go. “When he came in September he knew because we told him right off the hopper… the intent was the team would be sold during the course of the year... Obviously he protected himself in his contract very well – my relationship with him, I’m disappointed, but he’s going to be leaving here with his head held up high, because he did a phenomenal job for us... Obviously he’s very disappointed. He’s also a professional and a very good friend, and understood that (the intent was to sell) when he came in September. There was no hiding anything...” Mick said there were ‘what if’s’ concerning his own job depending on who bought the franchise.

The rescuers: Paul Hickson, Dale Kilmartin, Nancy Bell and Greg Moore were brought together by fate on Wednesday, April 24 to rescue an injured boater who had fallen into Shuswap Lake near Blind Bay.

Man rescued from lake Life-saving: Citizens pull victim out of water, provide first aid.

By Barb Brouwer OBSeRVeR STAFF

It was a team effort that saved a Blind Bay man’s life. Contractor Paul Hickson and dale Kilmartin were driving from eagle Bay towards Blind Bay Wednesday, April 26, when they spotted a boat going around in circles in the bay. “I slowed down a bit to check it out and could see there was nobody in the boat,” says Hickson. “Then I saw someone in the water.” That someone was Bob Wolfe, who had fallen from his boat while fishing. Wolfe says he tried to swim down to get away from his boat, but the propeller sliced his head open. He started to swim away and when he saw the boat coming back at him, raised his arm to save his head. “When it came at me the third time I

knew I couldn’t out-swim the boat, so I stayed in place and kicked the side so it would turn and go a different angle – and it did,” said Wolfe. “Then I started screaming and screaming for help.” Hearing the screams, Hickson took an aluminum fishing boat from a residence about 100 metres down the beach and he and Kilmartin grabbed two-bysixes to paddle out to where Wolfe was struggling in the water. “I noticed he had major issues – his head was gashed open something fierce, leaving a good trail of blood,” says Hickson, who immediately called for an ambulance. “He was in major shock.” Kilmartin grabbed Wolfe, holding onto him while a boat Kilmartin and Hickson had flagged down, came along the opposite side, so Hickson could hang on while they were pulled to the

shore. Another Blind Bay resident, Greg Moore, had arrived on the scene after becoming concerned by the sound of a boat going in circles. He helped Kilmartin get Wolfe up to a grassy area. “The guy was amazing, the strength he had after what he went through is amazing,” said Hickson, pointing out how Wolfe’s luck continued as Moore’s partner and first-aid provider, Nancy Bell, showed up with her truck loaded with medical supplies. “everything was in line for him, he was on the edge of going over and not coming back,” says Hickson. “His arm was totally thrashed. She stabilized him and gave him oxygen.” Awed by how events happened in Wolfe’s favour, Hickson says he See Wolfe on page A2

Wolfe recovers in hospital Continued from front doesn’t often have his cell phone in his pocket and he had warm clothing in his truck to help warm Wolfe up. Hickson says the ambulance responded to the 5:45 p.m. call very quickly, as did the South Shuswap First Responders. But Bell had already stabilized Wolfe for transport by ambulance to Shuswap Lake General Hospital. “I just kept eye contact and said, ‘You’re OK, you’re safe, we’ve got you,” Hickson says. Hickson was further amazed that Wolfe was worried about his boat

and had the wherewithal to remember his phone number in order to call his wife. The boat was still going around in circles so Hickson peeled a rope off a nearby dock and threw it in front of the runaway boat. It tangled in the prop and the boat finally stopped. “We got someone who could tow the boat, so he got his boat safely home and he got fixed – he’s a lucky man,” says Hickson, downplaying his role in saving Wolfe’s life. “You don’t feel, you just do. I’m no hero, I just know if somebody’s hurt, you just

keep control.” Wolfe is recovering in Royal Inland Hospital, where he was transferred for surgery. He has some 50 stitches in his head and doesn’t know if he will ever get full use of his arm again. But he’s taking things day by day and not making any plans for the future, except to visit with his rescuers to thank them in person when he gets home. Shaken up by his dad’s misadventure, son Steve, says the Wolfe family is extremely grateful to the team of caring individuals who rescued his dad and saved his life.

Mick said budgets are always the challenge for Junior A teams and “if you’re breaking even, it’s probably a good year.” Although Mick stopped coaching the team because of the heavy load he was carrying as GM and minority owner, he said the people involved in the new venture will give him the resources he needs. “Knowing what I know now, I wouldn’t have been the head coach when they hired me in the first place,” he says of his hiring

Mick says Randy and Terry Williams had two main goals in finding new owners – that the franchise would stay in Salmon Arm and the group would care about hockey. “They care very much about hockey,” said Mick of the new owners. “Junior hockey is not going out of Salmon Arm – 100 per cent.” He said he now has a challenge for residents. “Let’s show this ownership group that Salmon Arm can support Junior A hockey and support it the way it used to be.”

New face joins the race B.C. election: Little-known AID Party runs candidate. By Lachlan Labere OBSERVER STAFF

Putting a face to a fifth name on the ballot may be difficult for Shuswap residents when they vote May 14. According to Elections BC, Vernon resident Johanna Zalcik of the little-known Advocational International Democratic Party of B.C. (AID) will be competing against BC Conservative Tom Birch, Green Chris George, NDP Steve Gunner, and Liberal Greg Kyllo. Contacted by Black Press, Zalcik initially declined being interviewed, noting she is a private person. She did later consent to answer a few questions by email: Q: Why did you decide to run as a candidate in the Shuswap? A: My decision to run in the Shuswap is because I live here. Q: What are the major issues of concern for you? A: A major issue for me is care for the elderly; we need more homes. The elderly are waiting too long to get into long-term care. Q: What is your

primary local issue of concern? A: Schooling is another major issue. We need to teach financial literacy and functionality in our schools. Q: Can you please tell me a bit about yourself? A: Our family moved from Edmonton to Ver-

pursuing: 1) a 5.5-day school week; 2) academic excellence with emphasis on financial literacy and functionality with a charitable end point; 3) active trading instruction utilizing simulated realtime trading platforms throughout brokerage houses; 4) business and

A major issue for me is care for the elderly; we need more homes. The elderly are waiting too long to get into long term care.

Johanna Zalcik AID PARTY CANDIDATE non in 1989, where my husband retired, and I worked at the Bay We built a home in the Bella Vista area. Four years ago we moved to Desert Cove, where I also retired. Asked what the AID party stands for, Zalcik provided a one-page document containing the party’s platform. The document states, “We wish to reformulate standards for a new generation of young people by defining new educational metrics.” This includes

business ethics; 5) sustainable agrology and animal husbandry; 6) resource management. According to Elections BC, the AID party’s first financial report was in 2006, when it declared more than $1.8 million in assets. In 2007, the party received donations totalling close to $1.7 million from another relatively unheard-of party, the BC Patriot Party, whose founder Andrew Hokhold is from the Vernon area.

Question: The Shuswap was seriously impacted by flooding last spring. In 2004, the provincial government shifted the responsibility for flood hazard protection and management to local governments. In light of what happened here, should the responsibility for flood protection be returned to the province?

Tom Birch is project manager for a forestry software company and lives in Salmon Arm. He has worked for a number of companies in the forest industry and also has worked in Africa for a non-profit. He graduated from Trinity Western with a degree in communications. Tom Birch responds...

Tom Birch

BC Conservative Party

All insurance is based on averaging risk over a large sample. Flood protection is no different. For a community to manage it alone doesn’t work because

most communities won’t flood but those that do will be overwhelmed by the cost. This should be managed at a provincial level so that the risk is averaged and the costs affordable.

An entrepreneur, Chris George has had a varied career managing restaurants and retail outlets. George also was a financial planner and technology consultant to small businesses. He is currently a student at Thompson Rivers University. Chris George responds...

Chris George Green Party

Flooding in the Shuswap is a fact of life that will only get worse as climate change adds to the frequency and severity of these events. The province has a responsibility

to look after forests, public roads and ultimately the responsibility for streams and the flooding that comes with the terrain we have in our riding.

A farmer, Steve Gunner is president of North Okanagan Poultry Processing Incorporated in Armstrong, which raises pasture-raised organically fed chicken and turkeys. He is also manager of the Armstrong Curling Club in the fall and winter. Steve Gunner responds...

Steve Gunner BC NDP

I believe that the province has abandoned its responsibility for flood protection and has unreasonably downloaded this significant cost to local governments. There are a number of aspects that must be considered in order to prevent and manage floods in occupied areas. Factors to consider include transportation corri-

dors, fish habitat, and logged areas with all of the attendant terrain alterations, and it is not reasonable to expect local governments to organize and manage what is so clearly the work  of the provincial government. I am committed to advocating for the province to take responsibility for community flood protection.

A Sicamous councillor, Greg Kyllo is the president of Twin Anchors Marine Group, which operates luxury vacation houseboats, as well as TA Structures, a venture in portable housing. He has lived in Sicamous for 35 years and studied at Okanagan College.

Greg Kyllo BC Liberals

Greg Kyllo responds... Last spring’s flood in the Shuswap was tough for our community. This disaster damaged our infrastructure, weakened our economy, and dampened our spirits. In my own community of Sicamous, 350 people were evacuated. I was humbled, however, to see the efforts of residents in rebuilding our community.

While the Shuswap must have a thorough emergency response plan in place, I will advocate for the continued assistance of the government’s Emergency Management program. As your MLA I will collaborate with the provincial government towards building a comprehensive plan for such crises in the future.

Clark stands behind Kyllo Election: Party not phased by candidate’s fisheries violations. By Lachlan Labere OBSERVER STAFF

B.C. Premier Christy Clark’s confidence in BC Liberal Shuswap candidate Greg Kyllo remains high, despite his past involvement in a development that led to the destruction of sensitive fish habitat. During a visit last Wednesday morning to Kyllo’s Sicamous business, TA Structures, Clark spoke briefly to a 2010 court decision against developers of Old Town Bay for the alteration of fish habitat, used recently by the candidate’s critics, and opponents, as ammunition against him. Clark said Kyllo isn’t one who makes excuses, and has since put up $275,000 to remediate the issue. She added that while the case was well-known in Sicamous, residents still elected Kyllo to municipal council with a sizeable majority. “Misunderstandings and mistakes happen,” said Clark. “We are defined by how we deal with them. And taking responsibility, not making excuses, is who Greg Kyllo is.” Kyllo said the damage that occurred in 2007 resulted from a misunderstanding of federal and provincial regulations, including the Riparian Areas Regulation, which was enacted in the Fish Protection Act in 2004. “There was some misunderstanding with respect to the regulations that were in place, with DFO and what

their regulations were. It was also the same time the new Riparian Areas Regulation came out from the provincial government,” Kyllo told the Observer. Kyllo says $300,000 has since been spent on restoring the damaged area, and it continues to be monitored. Simply chalking it up to a mistake, however, isn’t enough for Shuswap Environmental Action Society president Jim Cooperman, who views the past infraction as a hit to both Kyllo’s credibility, as well as the BC Liberals. “I think it’s appalling that the BC Liberal party would allow a candidate to run with a track record like Mr. Kyllo’s, that involved a blatant disregard of federal laws and resulted in severe damage to fish habitat,” says Cooperman. In 2007, the Department of Fisheries and Oceans received a tip regarding land clearing done in January and June of that year related to the Old Town Bay resort development in Sicamous. In 2009, a representative of DFO told the Observer that after a lengthy investigation, DFO would be pursuing charges under the Fisheries Act for harmful alteration of fish habitat against the developers, numbered company 0702905 B.C. Ltd., and partners Jack Irwin of Salmon Arm, and brothers Greg and Todd Kyllo. In April 2010, legal counsel for the num-

bered company entered a guilty plea in Salmon Arm court. The company agreed to pay a sum of $375,000, including a $5,000 fine; $70,000 to the Fraser Basin Council for use in such projects as the Shuswap Lake Integrated Planning Process; and $300,000 towards remediation of the damaged site. In May 2011, Kyllo said he and his brother had divested themselves of the majority interest in the Old Town Bay project, retaining about four acres in the proposed village centre for a future marina. Kyllo says the experience with DFO was not lost on him, either as a businessperson or candidate. “I think if I’ve learned anything from that, it is to maybe take a sober, second look at projects before you move forward – to just maybe step back and maybe re-evaluate things before one goes charging ahead.” Asked how he thinks this incident might hinder his credibility in the eyes of the electorate, Kyllo says you have to measure the good with the bad. “I think we have to weigh all the positive impacts the company has had in the area with respect to job creation and community service, and weigh that against some mistakes that were made,” said Kyllo. What’s really important is we’ve done full restoration of the area and we’re moving forward. I’ve certainly A5

Pipeline uncertainty In Premier Christy Clark’s mind there is a difference between starting from no and working towards yes when it comes to controversial, large-scale pipeline projects. Last week, during a stop in Sicamous, the premier took a swipe at BC NDP leader Adrian Dix and his “Kinder surprise,” referring to Dix’s Earth Day announcement that he didn’t want to see Vancouver become a “major oil export port,” referring to Kinder Morgan’s twinning of the Trans Mountain oil pipeline from Edmonton to the Lower Mainland. This comment was later followed with the caveat that the BC NDP is still waiting to see the yet-to-be submitted application for the proposal, reflecting an earlier statement by Dix that he wouldn’t pre-judge the pipeline before plans are submitted for federal environmental review. “The NDP want to delay, they want to review, a chance to play out at being reasonable, when they secretly know their answer to economic development is always going to be ‘no,’” claimed Clark. As for Clark’s position, it would be the same as it is for another controversial pipeline project, Enbridge’s Northern Gateway – that “every proposal for the expansion of heavy oil movement” through B.C. must meet five conditions that include: successful completion of a federal environmental review process; world-leading marine and land oil response and prevention recovery systems; giving First Nations an opportunity to benefit; B.C. receiving economic benefits proportionate to the risk borne by the province. Clark said the same conditions would apply to David Black’s proposed bitumen refinery project in Kitimat. “I am not going to back down on this…,” said Clark. “That doesn’t mean it’s going to succeed. But the difference between me and Adrian Dix is I believe in trying to get to yes with economic development, and he believes in starting from no.” Shuswap NDP candidate Steve Gunner says Clark and the BC Liberals are doing their best to paint the BC NDP as being against everything, including Northern Gateway. “A project of that magnitude has to have a social contract in order to be allowed to go through. In other words, the people who are affected by it have to buy in, and it’s a long process, it’s not something that can be put through in a year,” says Gunner, noting the NDP would pull out of the Environmental Assessment Equivalency Agreement with the federal government and create a “made-in-B.C.” act to guide the process of provincial assessment and consultation for such projects. So with the Liberals, we have five fairly basic conditions, and a review process that do not guarantee a yes, but certainly don’t say no. And with the NDP, projects would not proceed without going through an assessment process set out by the province and its people. Again, neither a yes or no. Oh, except maybe Kinder Morgan’s, on which Dix had the audacity during an election to take a position.

Political power rests with electorate The 2013 provincial election will be one of the most important in a generation. At a time when the economy is in slow motion, yet demands on the public purse are increasing, voters need to pay attention to who’s running. Of course, we say this for every election — to no avail. Last time around, in the 2009 provincial election, only about 50 per cent of voters bothered to cast a vote. Who is to blame and will things be any different this year? Perhaps B.C. voters simply distrust anything politicians say. Clearly there is a disconnect and the media may have contributed to this malaise by blowing every little incident out of proportion. As in the story of the boy who cried wolf, many

voters simply tune out after a while, yet, sadly, when there is a real issue, many voters simply don’t see the connection between their vote and government policy. Instead, they leave the field to special-interest groups to hijack the results. Truth is, politicians will only be accountable if we hold them accountable. We have a right to toss any of them out if they don’t do what they promised, so voters need to pay attention to what politicians say and they need to find out who they are. Over the next few weeks, the Observer will be covering the election with information from our local candidates. The rest is up to you. –Black Press

The Observer asked: What do you think could increase voter turn-out for the B.C. Election?

Barb Vanston “Politicians who promise less and deliver more.”

Carl Stinger “I think the debates help create a more informed public that might be more willing to go out and vote.”

Judith Benson “Reminding your friends who are sitting on the fence that it’s their democratic duty to get out and vote.”

Mike Seeley “Have each party sum up their top five priorities for the voters... so they are better informed.”

Stacey Binnie “Politicians actually doing what they say they are going to do.”

Natural gas a smart Leave out the negative shots energy choice for B.C. In regards to the article: “Dangers of fracking relayed” in the April 17 issue of the Salmon Arm Observer. British Columbia’s natural gas resource, contrary to what this article suggests, is produced safely, reliably and in an environmentally responsible manner. Hydraulic fracturing is a process that has been safely used in Western Canada for many decades. More than 175,000 wells have been hydraulically fractured in Alberta and B.C. over the past 60 years without impacting drinking water, according to regulators in both provinces. This includes more than 7,500 wells that have been safely hydraulically fractured in B.C. Natural gas is the cleanest-burning fossil fuel. It burns 50 per cent cleaner than coal when used in power generation. In fact, increased use of natural gas in power generation has led to decreases in carbon dioxide emissions in the United States: the U.S. Energy Information Administration stated last year that carbon dioxide emissions from energy use

were the lowest in 20 years, partially as the result of increased use of natural gas over more carbon-intensive fuels for power generation. Natural gas development contributes significantly to government revenues in B.C. In the 2011/2012 fiscal year, natural gas royalties and mineral rights payments were the largest source of natural resource revenue for the province. The government uses these revenues to pay for services and infrastructure that benefit all British Columbians, including schools, roads and hospitals. Natural gas is a smart energy choice. Developing it creates economic strength, and using it has tangible environmental benefits, both at home and in the overseas markets Canadian producers want to supply via LNG terminals on the West Coast.

After sharing the weekend with complete strangers in a foreign land I had never visited before, I exit with memories and a life-altering experience. Salmon Arm, you are amazing! You embraced us, you welcomed us into your homes and engaged with our hockey culture for five days, treating us as one of your own. Thank you to the businesses who graciously served a team of teens. Thank you to the recreation centre, arena and sports facilities, you are as good as any in the province. Your staff and managers became part-

ners and welcomed us with open arms. Thank you to the restaurant employees who greeted us each early morning with a wide smile, when most were still sleeping. To the community of local residents who included us in your conversations and pitched just how fabulous your city is, thanks. Thank you for everything you did for us, we will be returning to enjoy all you have to offer real soon. Salmon Arm, you are the best! Larry Krause, BC Hockey

ter. The B.C. government has so many bylaws telling us all the things we can’t do with our own land. But they sure expect to get their property taxes every year. I am very

upset that I can’t do what I want with my own land. If you ask for help it’s a conflict of interest. Glenn Ablewhite

Honour ‘do no harm’ principle The recent assisted suicide death of Canadian Susan Griffith in Switzerland has proponents of assisted suicide and euthanasia lobbying again to change the law that protects people from an unwanted death. It is indeed tragic that Ms. Griffith chose to travel so far away from her loved ones. But hard cases make bad law. Legalizing assisted suicide has a suicide contagion effect. In Oregon where assisted suicide has been legal for the past 14 years the suicide rate is now 35 per cent higher than the national average. We have programs and crisis help lines to prevent suicides, and so we

should. The desire to die can stem from depression, feeling lonely and unloved, and bullied teenagers. But what message are we sending when the law allows doctors to do it. Quebec’s Dying with Dignity redefines euthanasia and assisted suicide as medical treatment. But a brief presented to the Quebec College of Medicine in opposition to euthanasia partly states: “When the patient and family get proper support, demand for euthanasia disappears. And that there is always a way out without resorting to euthanasia, even in the most complex cases. And decriminalization of euthanasia and assisted suicide

would create unwarranted pressure on the chronically ill, the physically challenged and increase elder abuse which is already at an all-time high.” The argument that analgesics prescribed in large doses is akin to euthanasia because it may hasten death is false. It is the intent; is it to kill the pain or the patient that matters. To withdraw medical treatment that is futile and burdensome for the patient is common sense practice. The Hippocratic oath, “do no harm,” has been a core value for physicians for generations. Hildegard Krieg

Temporary shut down for ICU By Barb Brouwer OBSERVER STAFF

A temporary shortage of internal medicine doctors meant the three-bed intensive care unit at Shuswap Lake General Hospital had to be moved down to the emergency department over the weekend. Peter Du Toit, acute care director for Interior Health’s ThompsonCariboo-Shuswap region, says the shortage

was unexpected. Shuswap Lake General has three internal medicine doctors at this time – Chris Main, Scott McKee and Danny Myers, who has been working here part-time since moving to Victoria. “With Danny going away it’s been tough for the other doctors to keep coverage, but they’ve been doing a great job,” says Du Toit, noting two more internists are

expected to arrive at the end of the year. “If there is a need for a change (in service), patient safety is always the first priority.” Du Toit says the emergency department is staffed by advanced critical care doctors and nurses, so quality of care remains at the same high level as ICU. The point is moot, because there were no patients in ICU last Fri-

day when the service was moved, nor did any arrive over the weekend. The ICU service returned to normal on Monday morning. Du Toit says that while wait times do fluctuate, usually increasing when the wards get backed up, emergency has been doing well lately. He acknowledges that the new 70-bed

Mt. Ida Mews on Shuswap Street is nearly full, something that has made a difference in ensuring patients are getting the appropriate level of care. Over at Bastion Place, Du Toit says plans for the long-term care facility are still underway, with different options being presented – plans, he says, that should be revealed soon. A9

In attendance: BC NDP candidate Steve Gunner, left, addresses the audience at the environmental all-candidates forum, while the BC Conservative’s Tom Birch and the BC Green’s Chris George listen. BC Liberal Greg Kyllo did not attend.

From our heart to your community

Candidates share views on the environment; Kyllo stays away As okanagan College dean and moderator Jim barmby put it, there was lots of light shed on the issues but very little heat for the candidates at the environmentally-focused forum Monday night. The forum was hosted by four groups, the shuswap environmental Action society (seAs), shuswap Water Action Team (sWAT), KAIros and the shuswap Naturalists. The biggest controversy came from who wasn’t there. bC Liberal candidate Greg Kyllo opted out of the forum, saying he wasn’t attending all-candidates meetings for special interest groups, because he would be compelled to attend them all. Jim Cooperman from seAs objected to this rationale, telling the approximately 70 people in the audience that, “the environment is not a special interest because without a healthy environment, no one has anything.” Moving forward with the three candidates, Tom birch for the bC Conservatives, steve Gunner with the NDP and Chris George with the Green Party, the discussion was respectful and educational. The comment was made that this forum drew more attendance

than the Chamber of Commerce and oMreb-sponsored general forum held last saturday. The crowd for this forum was particularly diverse, including a contingent of teens, who have been noticeably absent at previous forums. one young person got straight to the point, asking the candidates to give their first priority for the environment if they were to be elected. George said he believes it is imperative for the shuswap Lake Integrated Planning Process (sLIPP) to have permanent funding. “We need something secure to help protect our lake,” he said. birch, who was the only candidate to support pipeline and tanker expansion, stressed that he was committed to work locally to bring community groups together for a co-ordinated approach on issues like lake water quality, agriculture and forestry. “I have a passion to bring all these good organizations together and work on environmentally sustainable solutions... I believe we have the ability and the knowledge to create solutions in the shuswap that can then be used all over the province and the world.” Gunner also mentioned support for

sLIPP, as well as “putting more teeth” back into the Ministry of environment. “We need people to be looking after our environment and making sure regulations are followed.” The candidates were also questioned about how to make a shift away from non-renewable resources. birch said he advised slow, carefully planned change. “We don’t have to be in a panic... we need to make the shift to cleaner technology in a way that isn’t going to destroy business or the economy... if you tear at the fabric of society by destroying the economy, you will rip the heart out of environmental change.” He reflected on his experiences with the poverty in Africa. “If people can not feed their children, they are not going to care about trees or oil or anything.” Gunner says the NDP have learned from watching the mistakes of the bC Liberals, in that there needs to be public buy-in to create social change. “We need to manufacture a social contract, by talking, educating, sharing so that there can be a political will to make change.” George took a stance that the planet cannot afford to wait much longer to deal with issues like pollution and

climate change. “The future of our species depends on having a change of heart. We need programs to move forward now.” When it came to wireless technologies including the controversial smart meters, all the candidates agreed citizens should have the right to opt out. Another common theme from all three candidates was a commitment to try and get funding for lake water protection, either under the guise of sLIPP or as part of a water board, as is done in the okanagan watershed. The shuswap Naturalists questioned the current environmental assessment process, which relies on developers hiring a qualified environmental professional to produce assessment reports. Gunner and George both said the model is only partially effective because there are no checks to ensure the reports reflect science, rather than a bias towards to developer who is paying for the report. “We’ve had an evisceration of the civil service when it comes to the environment,” said George. Gunner and birch also advocated for more clearly defined environmental regulations so developers can know and follow the rules from the get-go.

Plan recommends swimming pool upgrade City: Council will have to decide between renovations or replacement of aging facility.

By Lachlan Labere OBSERVER STAFF

The City of Salmon Arm should be making plans sooner than later to renovate or replace the SASCU Recreation Centre and swimming pool. This is one of the key recommendations in Salmon Arm’s recently completed Parks and Recreation Master Plan, accepted in principle last week by city council. The plan – a “strategic framework to guide future recreation and parks decisions over the next 10 to 20 years” – was prepared by Lees+Associates Landscape and Architect Planners, and summarized by Erik Lees in a presentation to council. A result of “one of the most rigorous survey, consultation and engagement processes,” the plan identifies swimming and walking as the most popular forms of recreation and physical activity in the community, along with hiking, cycling, skiing, water sports such as

kayaking and running, with swimming, soccer and hockey being the most popular activities for children. The plan states that while the city faces many challenges,” perhaps the most crucial need is to undertake a substantial renovation or replacement of the rec centre and pool, and the development of a plan for either is identified as a short-term priority, with an expected capital expense of $2 to $10 million. Asked for his recommendation between reno and replacement, Lees said that if money wasn’t an issue, it would be the latter. “The difficulty of renovation is, as you all know, when renovating an old house, sometimes it’s good money after bad – but sometimes you don’t have enough money to build a new house,” said Lees. “So that will be this and future councils’ conundrum in moving forward. “But the technology for swimming pools has changed radically,

James murray/OBSERVER

Needs work: A recent consultant’s report on parks and recreation identified the city’s swimming pool as in need of improvement. the expectation for swimming pools and recreation facilities is increasing, it seems, with every year that I’m in this business. And you’ve got a very active, very engaged community here. Two different swim clubs for example. “So whether or not the existing facility can be retrofitted to meet the community’s – even the community’s middle-term needs – is in my mind a really big question mark.” The plan also iden-


tifies as a short-term priority the need for a long-range facility maintenance management agreement and life-cycle replacement plan for the Shaw Centre. It’s noted the centre is in good condition, though there is a desire for a third sheet of ice not recommended in the master plan. The plan also touches on the SASCU Indoor Memorial Sports Complex, noting the lifespan of the facility is limited, though

replacement would require a strong business case as, communities the size of Salmon Arm are “rarely able to sustain the level of use” generally required to justify the cost. All of Salmon Arm’s parks are identified in the plan, with recommendations for each. Regarding waterfront parks, Lees said prioritizing public access and usage needs to be a council priority in the coming years. The plan recommends improved connections

between Peter Jannink Park and Marine Park, which could be linked to Fletcher Park and the Ross Street Plaza. Klahani Park is targeted in the plan as a potential recreation hub. The long-term vision for Klahani outlined in the plan includes potential for a an outdoor amphitheatre, a four-diamond ballpark/ tournament facility and destination bike skills park with upgrades to the existing sport courts and playground. Coun. Alan Harrison spoke to a number of points in the plan that piqued his interest, including programming, which he noted needs to be more flexible, so that people can drop in and do things without having to sign up for long periods. He also appreciated a point made about children not interacting with their natural environment as much and not nearly as much as they used to. Regarding the rec centre and pool replacement, Harrison noted the city recently received grant money

that allowed a “bit of a Band-Aid” for mechanical works at the pool. “And so, I think it is something the community has to think about over the next five years,” said Harrison. “After that, what do we want to do, because we’re going to have to do one of the two if we want to continue to swim indoors.” Regarding how the city would go about doing all the plan recommends, Lees emphasized the need for partnerships with local community groups and, Okanagan College and government bodies. “What we’re saying here is staff doesn’t have to do it all. You don’t have enough staff to do it all. You don’t have enough budget to do it all yourself,” said Lees. “But in partnership, and co-ordinating with community groups, that will be one of the keys to success.” The Parks and Recreation Master Plan can be viewed at http://

Launch-a-Preneur: Boost for budding businesses.

By Martha Wickett OBSERVER STAFF

Cheese topped Salmon Arm’s Launch-aPreneur competition, which wrapped up Friday night in front of an enthusiastic crowd. First prize went to Len Marriott and Terroir Cheese, which is described as a business producing local artisan raw-milk cheeses reflecting the unique taste produced by the North Okanagan/Shuswap. Just as champagne comes only from grapes grown in the Champagne region of France, Terroir cheese reflects its natural environment. Terroir Cheese went home with a $17,000 prize package that included six months of business mentorship through Community Futures’ Accelerate Shuswap, $3,000 of seed capital from Salmon Arm Savings and Credit Union, $1,500 from Launch-a-Preneur ticket sales, as well as advertising, bookkeeping and legal support. Seventeen teams began the three-month program created by Okanagan College Enactus students, Community Futures and Salmon Arm Economic Development, with eight taking part in the grand finale. The program included a series of workshops and business mentors to help prepare a detailed busi-

ness plan and determine if a business is viable. Friday evening at the Salmar Classic began with an elimination round where all eight teams gave an ‘elevator pitch’ – a quick overview of their product or service to try to entice an investor. They were trying to convince a panel of four businesssavvy judges as well as three ‘green business’ judges that theirs would be a good investment. Along with Terroir Cheese, teams included: Ackerview Guesthouse, respite care on a ‘Green Care’ farm; Baked on the Lake, fresh baked goodies available on Shuswap Lake; TransHerbalcooks, hemp and cannabis products for medicinal uses; Intwined Fibre Arts, a natural fibre business providing yarns and other products as well as related workshops; EKG Thermal Imaging, offering scans to pinpoint electrical faults in a variety of industries; Hillside Dreams, a goat dairy; and Artisan Hydro Heat, providing a modularized hydronic radiant-heating system. Following the elevator pitches and a pause that was ably filled by MC Darren Jacklin, a business/life mentor who has trained businesses and agencies all over the world, four businesses were called back for the second round.

Remaining on the board are Tim Giandomenico, Cookie Langenfeld, Gale-Paule Davison, Steve Reid, Jeff Johnson, Rob Sengotta, Kyle Dearing, Bill Laird, Dorothy Argent, Ron Langridge and David Barritt. New to the board is Kathleen Hurtubise, who was acclaimed for a one-year term, and Jay Agassiz, who will serve for two years.

Stepping down after many years on the board of the Salmon Arm Downtown Improvement Association – now Downtown Salmon Arm – are Michael Wagner and Rob Marshall. Wagner has served for 16 years on the board, 13 of them as treasurer, while Marshall served for seven years, four of them as president. Langridge presented both men with gifts on behalf of the board, acknowledging them “for their incredible work.” He also showed a new plaque the association has created, which has Marshall and Wagner as the first two name plates to be engraved.

Most of us spend the dark of night tucked into bed, but for Salmon Arm Security, covering the night shift is their bread and butter. Skylar Plourde is one of the private security firm’s officers and in an effort to educate the community on what his job entails, Plourde took to Twitter and posted details from a weekend of work to outline just what the night shift can be like. This is similar to efforts put forward by a number of major police organizations, including the Surrey RCMP and the Calgary Police Service, in an effort to raise awareness. “People sometimes see our cars and might wonder what exactly we do. April is not our busy season, not like the summer or May long weekend, but I thought for a first time, this would give a picture of what the life of a security guard is.”

Some of the work is pretty average. “The first part of our shift, we check and lock all the city public washrooms. Just did Marine Park and Ross Street, few more to go,” Some is a little more fun. “I enjoy checking out all the new trucks at the dealerships we patrol,” he tweets. Other times, there’s some detective work. On Sunday, Plourde could small natural gas at the Okanagan College campus. He alerted Fortis, who sent a technician and it was later determined to be a gas leak. The night before, he found a door at the college unlocked, and when it was unable to be locked, another Salmon Arm Security officer was called in to monitor it for the rest of the night. Other times, the security firm provides another set of eyes for the RCMP. “Came across what appeared to be a domes-

Strikers strong in Kamloops Despite the cold and blustery wind this past Sunday, the U-11 Shuswap Strikers delivered their best performance of the season by shutting out strong Kelowna and Vernon teams during league play in Kamloops. In their first game of the day, the Strikers surprised Kelowna early with constant pressure on the goal. Lina Frankhauser found the back of the net and then Maggie Beckner gave the Strikers breathing room by capitalizing on a breakaway early in the second half. The final score was 2-0 for Salmon Arm. In their second match of the day, a confident Salmon Arm team took the pitch against an aggressive Vernon squad. Salmon Arm’s speed proved to be too much for Vernon as they tallied two first-half goals from Beckner and Lucy Elliott. The strikers came out guns a-blazing in the second half and Angalena Cross and Maggie Rodwell each managed to find the back of the net, making the final score 4-0. Madeline Lucier was stellar in goal, earning the two shut-outs with help from a solid and feisty defensive line.

Early attack

Shuswap struck early in the first half against Vernon and enjoyed a 2-0 lead before the five-minute mark of

their fourth game of the season. The enthusiastic crowd had barely settled in, before some creative play along the goal line resulted in a decisive finish by a predatory midfielder. One minute later, the Shuswap striker broke in alone on the Vernon keeper and tucked in the second goal. What looked like the start of a rout included end-to-end action with a total of 17 shots and some fine saves by both keepers. Vernon had the majority of possession but the Shuswap defence held tight, repelling the vast majority of threats. At the final whistle, the score was 2-0 with Shuswap’s record improving to 2-02. The U18 boys play Penticton next Sunday at 1 p.m. at Blackburn Park. Come early to get a good seat.

Can’t be stopped

The Senior Jewels girls soccer team played their first home game last Wednesday against Norkam. They stepped up their level of play and played some nice possession soccer. Joelene Neumann opened the scoring on a shot from more than 22 yards away. Cassie Gunn was next on the scoreboard, showing some grit and determination to battle for the ball in the sixyard box. The score was 2-0 at half with the girls moving the ball easily

Filling out the six teams are a half dozen women who have been away from the game for a few years, another 20 players who are totally new to soccer, along with the 60 returning or experienced players. On Field 1, Teal and White had a fantastic backand-forth game, resulting in a 0-0 draw.  On

Field 2, Navy got a few goals on Orange, but it was a well-fought game. And Field 3 saw Lime and Maroon battle it out with Lime coming out ahead. Great skill, support and mentorship were demonstrated out there. A couple teams were short players so some shifting and guest appearances made sure the games went ahead, but that worked out well as the women had lots of time on the field to get their soccer legs. Ted United played their first home game Tuesday night at Little Mountain against Vernon’s Rosters. United dominated in the middle of the field with Tricia Martin and Liz Mair sending through balls which resulted in two goals for Kyla Sherman and one for Kim Turner before halftime. In the second half,

Cathy Bartch played a great head ball to Kyla Sherman who tapped it in for her third. Bonnie Kelly finished up the game with two quick goals, one a beautiful header into the top corner, resulting in a 7-0 score. Christine Nickles cleared the one good scoring chance the Rosters had and aggressive goaltending found Linda Yawney with her second shutout.

Junior golf tour to visit BC Golf’s Zone 2 Junior Tour will stop at the Salmon Arm Golf Club this Saturday, May 4. The tour plays golf courses through the region from Kamloops to Osoyoos. The tour heads to Vernon on Sunday.

outlaws prevail The Shuswap Midget Outlaws Lacrosse team was in action this week with two league games. In a home game Tuesday, they defeated the North OK Legends 7-0. Kalvin Davyduke recorded the shut out for Shuswap. On Saturday the Outlaws entertained the Kelowna Kodiaks. With Davyduke unavailable, the Outlaws called on Zach Fournier to make an emergency start in goal. Fournier kept Shuswap in the game early, allowing the offence to pour in the goals as the Outlaws prevailed 14-3, extending their winning streak to five games. Assistant coach Grant Cowie was satisfied with the team. “Our game plan is working well and this group really has some exceptional team speed.” The Outlaws have a game this Thursday as they face off against the Kamloops Rattlers.

Moving from water to fire Mike Effray, head coach and director of Shuswap Swimming, is diving into a new life. Effray, his spouse and fellow coach Jenny and their son Harrison are moving to Cranbrook, where Effray is taking over a silviculture company with a focus on forest firefighting services. Replacing him will be longtime swim coaches Sam and Jana Montgomery. Since moving to Salmon Arm six years ago when the Effrays formed the swimming club, Mike has volunteered with the Salmon Arm Fire Department. He says he loved the activity, not only for the opportunity to meet great people and help others, but also for the joy in the activity itself. “Ironically, years later now, this is the catalyst for our departure as well,” he writes in an email. “A couple of years ago I went to Enderby to go to the funeral of Captain Dan Botkin who was a firefighter who died in the line of duty and, strangely at that time, it was a turning point in my coaching career that saw me look to the future of possibly making the change to a career involved in the fire service. “I had not realized how profound an effect

it had on me at the time, but it was certainly a moment that made me rethink life in many ways, including my career. “So, while I had looked into the needs of the training required for me to make it a career, and looked at whether or not the City of Salmon Arm had any realistic future career opportunities in firefighting in the near future, I did not see this as a realistic possibility, and had not considered it too much afterwards, knowing that we had spent years building up the swim team and that it was starting to really perform and look good. “We had started the team with zero swimmers in line to join us, and over the years have seen it grow from a team made up primarily of swimmers aged 12 or younger, to seeing it blossom to well over 60 youth swimmers annually, and the incorporation of another 55 to 75 masters swimmers annually in the mix too.” This summer during a trip to Cranbrook he ran into family members. There, his uncle, who owns the silviculture company, asked that he consider taking it over. “I saw the potential in the forest fire suppression end of the business, and decided that since Salmon Arm did not ap-

Best of luck: Surrounded by swimmers, new Shuswap Swimming coach Sam Montgomery shakes hands Saturday with outgoing coach Mike Effray at the recreation centre swimming pool. pear to have a firefighting career option for me, that I would jump at this opportunity knowing that I would have a mentor who wanted to retire to give me guidance as I go along, and while I did not see this as a structural firefighter’s career, I did see it as an opportunity that was not likely to crop up again.” He says it was a tough decision to leave the team, which has become a part of their extended family. The couple had been fielding inquiries from far afield from people interested in coaching the team, and are pleased they came to an agreement with the

Montgomeries. “So, while Coach Jenny and I are moving on and, in many ways are sad to say goodbye, we are also both pleased that we are leaving the team in experienced and capable hands going forward,” he wrote. The new coaches coming into the community will be bringing their experience and family, says Effray, as they feel that this opportunity was “meant to be” for them. “Sam has coached in many locations in Canada and the USA, and has placed swimmers on international teams in Canada, including the Olympic team. Jana has been coaching in

both Canada and the U.S. as well, having been the head coach in Stettler, Alta. prior to their move to Ontario to coach in Aurora together,” says Effray. “We know that these coaches are indeed well experienced in coaching to be able to see the team continue to grow and perform at higher and higher levels to come into the future.” He said he and Jenny will miss many things about Salmon Arm, but “this new venture in our life is exciting in so many ways, and we are looking forward to... seeing a career in the fire suppression service come to fruition over time.”

Reaching for the sky

Shuswap Middle School students, including an enthusiastic Mack Oleson, head out at the start of the 13th annual Rick Harris Memorial Run held Monday in the neighbourhood surrounding the school.

Big success at Rugbyfest for first place. It was a very physical game that caused a few Grand Forks players to be removed from the field. Luke Dufresne stole a lot of balls in the scrum but the backs found it difficult to score.

Jewels The Jewels faced seaquam on Friday afternoon and put seaquam in shock after scoring four quick tries in 20 minutes. Coach Carmen Faulkner shuffled her line to create more ball

movement and learning opportunities for a lot of rookies. Laurel Poloway got stuck into one tackle and pushed the opposite player back five yards but unfortunately took herself out of the game due to a slight injury. breaking the white try line was made easy by skyla eberle, brooke Miller and Marin Faulkner. superb tackling by the Jewels stopped seaquam from getting anywhere near the Jewels 22-yard line. Game two was vs surrey’s Queen eliza-

beth, who were blanked on the score sheet with seven tries by beth Lucier, Avia Latosky, sam bergman, Trice Tuati, Marissa Latosky and Faulkner (2). The final game vs Prince George was fun because more Jewels touched the ball to help it get to the end zone. Gracie rempel almost went end-to-end on a breakaway to score, while Miller had two tries. breaking off from the bottom of a ruck, Julie McClean picked up the ball and dove over the try line.

As part of the rugbyfest tournament in Kamloops, the Junior boys faced a strong Fleetwood team from surrey April 23 that had some size. The Jr. Golds had great success mauling the ball into the endzone to score one try. Connor benson slotted the conversion easily for two points. As the Golds proceeded down the field, Clayton Leduc stormed the Fleetwood goal line only to come inches short. Fleetwood retaliated with two tries and a conversion making it 12 to 7. Again on the doorstep of the Fleetwood team, the Golds went to the blind side of the field with Chad baker at scrum half and brandt Adams on the wing who dodged to score in the corner for the tie. because Golds scored first it is considered a win in tournament play. The second game had try scoring action with baker, brandt (2), Jase robert, and benson all scoring for the Golds. Left with nothing, Lv rogers from Nelson learned from the Golds tutelage. The greatest success was moving the ball beyond the ruck creating a lot of opportunities for players to score.   Last game of the tournament was the Grand Forks grudge match

Margaret Anita Bews (nee Reid) passed away suddenly at Shuswap Lake General Hospital on April 20th, 2013 with her daughter by her side. Born on March 5, 1920 in Kindersley, Saskatchewan, to Janet (nee Hannah) and Wesley Reid, Marg spoke fondly of the warm and loving home her parents created for their children: Borden, Kay, Margaret, Mary and Jack. Following the death of her mother when she was 11 and  her father when she was 18, Marg, a hairdresser, and her older sister Kay, a bookkeeper, took on the challenge of maintaining that happy home for their two younger siblings. On August 9, 1941, Marg and Bill Bews married. Their next 61 years together were filled with love, caring and compassion for family and friends alike. Their door was always open and Marg was always ready and pleased to whip up a delicious dinner.  Marg and Bill were always active members in the church in the many communities they lived in throughout SK, Man., ON and BC. In 1973, Marg and Bill retired to Sunnybrae, where they built their dream home on the beautiful Shuswap. Here, Marg discovered her artistic side as a member of the Sunnybrae Painters and perfected her craft as a hostess and fantastic baker. They enjoyed 25 years there, moving to Salmon Arm only when their health began to fail. Marg was pre-deceased by her daughter Kay (Kathleen) and son-in-law (Cliff Gordon) in 1973, her beloved Bill in 2002 and all of her siblings.
