Residents angered over dock removal By Barb Brouwer OBSeRVeR STAFF

A tidal wave of protest has risen over the province’s plans to remove illegal docks from Shuswap lake. Some 300 residents from around the lake met at Quaaout lodge Monday night to discuss options. Representing the north Shuswap chamber of commerce, dave cunliffe says semi-waterfront and waterfront owners from all areas of the lake attended. “This was an initial meeting to see if there’s an interest to work collectively to effect some changes,” he said, noting his focus is on the right of semiwaterfront owners to have docks and the need to get provincial permits to make dock repairs. “It’s about our local economy and I represent members of the chamber that will definitely be affected by this.” Inside: At issue is the removal The chair of of structures on crown SLIPP land and docks belonging to residents who live hands in near, but not on the water. his laying the blame on the Shuswap lake Interesignation. grated Planning Process See A4.

Canada Day: Residents rally to have Sicamous fireworks on July 1. By Lachlan Labere OBSeRVeR STAFF

Sicamous council will reconsider their decision to move the canada day fireworks display to August following a red and white uprising at town hall. A large crowd of people, representing all ages, appeared in front of the municipal civic centre Monday afternoon to protest a failed motion in council, and the ramifications it would have on local tradition. That motion, made at council’s May 22 meeting by coun.

Province steps up enforcement Continued from front finding ways to restore portions of the lake to its natural condition. But he emphasizes it is the province that has increased its focus on compliance and enforcement through legislation that is among the oldest in B.C. Tobin is very clear on two things – while waterfront property owners may have docks within regulations, they cannot build structures without getting ministry approval on anything below the “natural present boundary” or mean annual high water mark, which is Crown land. And “upland property owners” (or “semi waterfront” in CSRD’s zoning bylaw) whose property is separated from the water by a road or railway have no right to have a private dock on Crown Land. Marcin Pachcinski, CSRD’s Parks and Recreation manager, says the CSRD zoning bylaw also only permits true waterfront owners to have docks. “The intent there is it would not make sense to have a local zoning bylaw allowing docks for proper-

ties that we know the province would not allow,” he says. “We have a shared jurisdiction, that’s why we made such a strong commitment to make local government regulations mimic federal and provincial regulations.” Tobin and Pachcinski agree the enforcement focus is on 100 to 150 structures out of an estimated 2,700plus that would never be permitted in their current form because they’re either grossly over-built, built in high-value habitats, or were built without the right to construct on the beach or water. “People built them without getting permission; they were not entitled,” Tobin said. “I’m mystified, especially because Shuswap Lake has one of the most significant salmonid fisheries, certainly in B.C. if not North America. We’re trying to get back to as natural a system as possible on a lake that is facing significant public pressure.” Mike Simpson, senior regional manager of the Fraser Basin Council, which administers SLIPP, says that while water quality was a big issue when

the organization was formed, it was not the only one. He says the only involvement SLIPP has had in the illegal dock and structure issue was to use funds provided by The Habitat Conservation Trust Foundation – not taxpayers’ money – in a pilot project in which upland owners were offered funds to pay for the modification or removal of their illegal docks. “That has gone over like a lead balloon,” he says, noting the last of the projects was completed in March, at which point SLIPP walked away and is in no way involved in enforcement activities. Tobin reiterates property owners need to be aware that docks without permits will have to be removed. “Removal of said structures can happen voluntarily (owner complies and removes), or they can be ordered to remove via a trespass notice from Compliance and Enforcement,” he says, estimating the process will take about three to four years to complete. On their part, Cunliffe says the property owners provided their contact information

Meeting set for Friday Continued from front also expressed concern about the change, especially in Salmon Arm, where there are no nighttime festivities planned. Many Salmon Arm residents travel to Sicamous for their fireworks. The change compelled people such as Beth Braun to bring her children to Main Street on Monday and join the chorus of protest. “I think it’s not about Sicamous, I think it’s about Canada,” said Braun about the importance of the July 1st fireworks “I think it’s important that we keep tradition,” said 11-year-old

Amy Wiebe. Sharon Reed was of like mind – that the Canada Day fireworks display is part of a local and national tradition. “It’s about family, it’s about country, and fireworks draw people to join together to have a good time and to have some camaraderie,” said Reed. “I know many of the people here and we take pride in Sicamous, we take pride in our country. It’s important.” With fellow councillor Richardson by his side (Trouton was in the Lower Mainland attending the Federation of Canadian Municipalities convention), Rysz took some

jeers amongst the calls to put the display back to July 1st. “OK, so that’s why we’re here, because we want to talk to you about this,” said Rysz. “There’s no doubt that with this turnout today, we as council, we have to make some serious decisions… and when we made the decision the other day, myself personally and Don as well, we felt we were making the right decision on behalf of the economics of this community.” Rysz went on to say council would bring the matter back to the table. A special council meeting is now scheduled for Friday, June 7 at 4:30 p.m.

Open house planned for gaming centre By Lachlan Labere oBSerVer STAFF

Shuswap residents will soon have an opportunity to learn more about a gaming centre proposed for Salmon Arm. While a specific date has yet to be determined, the B.C. Lottery Corporation and service partner Berezan Management will be hosting an open house in June. BCLC spokes-

person Kim Steinbart says the purpose of the meeting is to share the plans for the community gaming centre being proposed by the Adams Lake Indian Band, to be located on the TransCanada Highway at the former location of Salmon Arm GM. “People will have the opportunity to learn more about BCLC and our partners, and view renderings of the upcoming development,”

says Steinbart in an email. “We’ll also share more details about the entertainment options that will be available, and the responsible gambling programming we offer in all gambling facilities across the province.” The centre is expected to be about 20,000-square-feet in size, and include slot machines, bingo, a lounge and a restaurant.

Morgan refuses to chair SLIPP meetings By Barb Brouwer OBSERVER STAFF

A Columbia Shuswap Regional District director has resigned as chair of the Shuswap Lake Integrated Planning Process steering committee. While Area F North Shuswap director Larry Morgan stepped down Thursday, May 23, he will continue to sit on the committee. “I resigned as chair of the SLIPP Steering Committee, as I did not want to continue to be drawn into an increasingly divisive debate over the direction of SLIPP,” Morgan said in a written statement. Created in 2007 in response to concerns regarding numerous issues impacting the Shuswap watershed, SLIPP is comprised of stakeholders from various levels of government and environmental groups, who committed varying amounts of funding to a three-year pilot project. The project is now in its third year. “They were trying push it ahead and I just thought we were getting ahead of ourselves,” Morgan said in a phone interview last

week. “I am reserving judgment on any decision on the continuation or funding of SLIPP for the future.” Morgan was opposed to a proposal to send out a survey to gauge public approval for SLIPP. “My argument was surveys can be manipulated,” he said. “It boiled down to the fact certain people are more supportive than I am.” Morgan said that at $90,000 a year over the

Larry Morgan Resigns fRom sLiPP ChaiR three-year project, Area F is the second largest contributor to SLIPP, after Area C South Shuswap, which is in for $142,000 per year. “Other areas are paying a lot less and Salmon Arm contributed a small amount last year and this year, and Sicamous is contributing nothing this year,” he said. “From the Area F

standpoint, we need to see funding done on a more fair basis in terms of population or a transition to some other organization.” Defending Morgan’s position, interim chair and Salmon Arm mayor, Nancy Cooper, says the steering committee does not yet have all the information needed to make decisions. “I am waiting to see and evaluate and bring that to council,” she says. Shuswap Water Action Team (SWAT) president Ray Nadeau, says it’s important to get a decision on moving SLIPP forward prior to September because the regional district will be in the budget process for 2014. Without a decision on funding, he is worried the project will simply slip under the waves. “So far the results of SLIPP show the water is clearly beginning to deteriorate and, in my opinion, we need a permanently-funded water board similar to what they’ve had for 40 years in the Okanagan,” he says, pointing out a healthy economy is dependent on a healthy watershed.

Call it quits on Senate Sometimes for us Westerners, the issues in Ottawa can seem pretty distant. While many issues of national importance can have a significant impact, it can be hard to feel that connection stretch the equivalent of a five-hour flight to the federal centre of the universe. But the recent revelations about the conduct of senators like Mike Duffy and Pamela Wallin (both former journalists, I shudder to add) should have all B.C.’ers sitting up and taking notice. Really, the conduct of some individual senators aside. The larger issue is whether Canadians really need the senate – or, more accurately, should we be paying for it. Having completed my university degree in Ottawa, I had a number of chances to witness the workings of both Parliament and the Senate. Even those many years ago, I questioned the need for this so-called chamber of sober second thought on parliamentary legislation. I have vivid recall of watching one senator for quite some time, trying to determine from the height of the visitor gallery whether he was asleep or just resting. I’m not alone in my concerns. I also recall speaking to our own MP Colin Mayes, who at the time was a candidate for the Reform Party. He heartily agreed with the inefficiency of the Senate and espoused the need to reform the archaic institution into the Triple E (which stands for elected, equal and effective) model. This would have each province elect the same number of senators and, as a result, make it a more effective and democratic arm of the government. Prime Minister Stephen Harper himself has long been a critic of the Senate, which was one of the foundation platforms of the Reform Party of Canada. Then-leader Preston Manning espoused an elected, rather than appointed upper chamber and in 2004 Harper himself said he would not appoint senators. In the years since, he has appointed 59 members to the Senate, including prominent Conservative Party supporters and failed candidates. Clearly the Senate situation has not changed. Senators are still not elected, and the issue of patronage appointments for the lucrative positions, which pay a base salary of $135,200 in addition to expenses continues – the source of much of the recent scandal. Recent estimates peg the annual cost of the senate at more than $92 million. That is all from taxpayer dollars. In my mind, it is time to forget reform and take that cost off the books altogether. Pay some type of severance to the current crop and shut down the Senate. Government will function just fine. Remember, most provinces also used to have an upper chamber of their own legislatures. The vast majority of these have been abolished as they proved to be little more than an expensive rubber-stamp on the legislative process. I’d much rather see that $92 million spent on upgrading our Trans-Canada Highway or enhancing social programs for needy Canadians.

Impaired driving not the only risk At least twice each year we see a real push from police against drinking and driving. Once at Christmas and again in the spring. At Christmas, age is not a consideration for police, but in springtime, the target group is clear. Drinking drivers tend to be younger in spring around graduation time. But drinking alone is still a threat to our youth, whether they get behind the wheel of a car or not. From risky sexual behaviour to an increase in physical and sexual assaults, to death from alcohol poisoning, the risk to youth from excessive alcohol use or drinking to get drunk, is real. With any luck, the days of parent-sanctioned

“wet” grad parties are a thing of the past. As parents, it’s our job to make the tough decisions – even if they are not the most popular ones with our kids. All their lives we’ve made decisions for our children based on what we think is best for them. We’ve denied them sugary cereals. We’ve strapped unwilling toddlers into car seats, because it’s the safest way for them to ride. It may not be the easiest thing you’ve done lately, but convincing your teen that drinking alcohol to celebrate is not a necessity and could bring them harm in ways other than the risk of driving drunk will make everyone feel better in the morning. - Black Press

The Observer asked: If you were planning to stay in the Shuswap for your holidays what would you do?

Gerri Kiy “Go out on a houseboat.”

Jim Duxbury “Fishing and more fishing.”

Michelle Holmes “We’d probably go camping out at Herald Park.”

Murray MacDonald “Take in everything that goes on at Kingfisher Hall.”

Vivian Morris “Mountain biking at Larch Hills and maybe rent the log cabin that’s up there.”

Demonstration of double standard Salmon Arm needs to attract young families I recently received my tax notice – and sadly there is yet another tax increase this year – has council not heard that we are in a recession? We have policing that needs to be paid for – and yet we increased those costs from a crime prevention viewpoint when we allowed the credit union to build away from the downtown core where all of the other banks are. The approval for the new location will increase our policing costs. I do understand there is aged infrastructure that needs to be replaced and paid for and therefore taxes must be levied. There is, however, a potential solution other than raising taxes each year. That solution would be to market Salmon Arm to families with young children. It is families that make a community. With more families will come more commerce, more jobs, housing developing and more opportunities. Sadly, our town has been marketed as a great place to retire – and it has much to offer. However, the retired folk will lose that perception if they cannot afford to live here because of increasing taxes. Perhaps our residents (and council) need to explore other options for raising funds. Margaret Davidson

Drivers must remember rules

It’s been a few years since I first obtained my driver’s licence, so I stand to be corrected, but is it not illegal to pull up on the right hand side of a vehicle at an intersection on a single lane street or road, where there is no designated right turn lane, and turn right? It always startles me when it happens. And when did it become ‘ok’ to pass a vehicle on the right on a single lane street or road when that vehicle is waiting to make a legal left-hand turn? I cringe each time I watch this happen, which is often, especially where a pedestrian crosswalk is also present. Is it really so important to get where we’re going in the least amount of time possible? Ineke Hughes

It was an interesting provincial election campaign, and I met a lot of supporters of the other side: Liberals provincially, Conservatives federally. Many of them raged about Adrian Dix having collected severance pay when dismissed for having back-dated his own memo. “He should give back the money!” Now, the shoe is on the other foot:  Stephen Harper informs us that Nigel Wright, having resigned for paying Mike Duffy $90,000 to help make an

audit go away (in violation of section 17 (1) of the Senate Conflict of Interest code, Section 16 (1) of the Parliament of Canada Act – up to one year in jail – and Section 121 (1) of the Criminal code – up to five years in jail.) will get severance pay. “The Prime Minister said that Wright, a former Bay Street financier and lawyer, is owed payments under the law. The government cannot work around them.” Is there any chance that any local

residents (I know where you live because I canvassed you) who were so outraged over Adrian will be similarly upset by Nigel Wright? Will they be demanding that justice be done, and that Wright be disbarred?  Imprisoned? That he give back the money? Will they vote against the Conservatives?  Should I hold my breath in anticipation? Richard Smiley

Accountability needed on election fraud With 11 words, a Federal Court judge acknowledged a democratic crisis in Canada, and implicated the governing Conservative Party. “I find that electoral fraud occurred during the 41st General Election,” wrote Judge Richard Mosley in his ruling on legal cases brought forward by eight Canadians who, with the aid and support of the Council of Canadians, sought to overturn results from the 2011 federal election. “Misleading calls about the locations of polling stations were made to electors in ridings across the country,” concluded Mosley, adding that the calls, “appear to have been targetted towards voters who had previously expressed a preference for an opposi-

tion party.” “The most likely source of the information used to make the misleading calls was the CIMS database maintained and controlled by the CPC (Conservative Party of Canada), accessed for that purpose by a person or persons currently unknown to this court,” the ruling read. “This Federal Court decision is a major indictment of the Conservative Party of Canada,” said Garry Neil, executive director of the Council of Canadians. “The court has found that CIMS was used for extensive election fraud. It’s now up to the Conservative Party to tell Canadians who did it.” It’s time for the Conservatives to be accountable for election fraud!

This week, while considering appealing the judgment to the Supreme Court of Canada to seek further remedies to the proven election fraud, the Council of Canadians called on the Conservative Party to make public a list of everyone who had access to the national CIMS database and authority to make a decision to initiate the calls, and to turn the information over to the Commissioner of Elections. I join this call for accountability and demand that the Conservative Party turn over those responsible, or release the list of names of all those who had access to the national CIMS database in the 2011 federal election. Robert R. Boxall

It’s time to counter Morgenthaler’s legacy It’s hard to comprehend how the media heaps accolades upon Dr. Henry Morgentaler when his legacy is over 100,000 abortions a year. Morgentaler’s crusade for reproductive health i.e. abortion, your right to choose, freeing women of motherhood all funded by taxpayers’ money has left a trail of sorrow. Women regretting their abortion decision, women injured, unable to bear a child “when they want it.” Many of these women are courageous-

ly speaking out about the harm done to them, some at Morgentaler’s own abortion clinic. Morgentaler challenged the abortion law in the ’70s and ’80s. Finally in 1988 the Supreme Court of Canada struck down the law that had given a tiny bit of protection to the baby in the womb. However, the court also said that it was up to parliament to legislate when human life should be protected. The pro-life movement always

hoped and prayed that Morgentaler would change his position. Dr. Bernard Nathanson, the U.S. crusader for abortion rights who, after committing over 60,000 abortions, encountered fetology, and came to the full awareness that human life begins at conception. The majority of Canadians want some legal protection for the pre-born. It is time for the government to act. Hildegard Krieg

Salmon Arm link to stolen film By Tracy hughes obSerVer STAFF

A roll of film filled with baby pictures that was stolen close to a decade ago has been recovered thanks to the efforts of a former Salmon Arm resident’s social media postings. Helen Maslyk, who recently moved to Vancouver Island from Salmon Arm, discovered

the film canister on the roadside of the Malahat Highway near Victoria during the May long weekend. Maslyk spotted the roll of undeveloped film in the ditch when her camping trip was delayed due to tire problems. She had the film developed, then posted the baby pictures on Facebook in an effort to find the owner.

Apply online by June 18.

The photos’ owner, Ann Perry-Smith, said the film was stolen nine years ago during a vehicle break-in and was amazed to see the photographs of her husband and then-infant daughter online. The film has now been returned and the two women have since had their story covered by national and international media.

credit card scam On May 28, Salmon Arm RCMP received a report that unidentified women had contacted an elderly resident of Salmon Arm advising that as a valued customer of Askew’s Foods, she had won a prize. To find out more information about her prize she was to press #1 on her phone. When the woman complied, a second woman got on the line and informed the senior she would have to obtain some personal information from her before she could claim her prize. The caller asked for the woman’s credit card number and security code. When the woman refused to provide the caller with this information, she hung up. Askew’s Foods confirmed they were not the source of the call and would never ask for personal banking information. Police caution the public not to provide personal credit card or banking information over the phone. There is no legitimate organization that would require a person who has won a contest to provide this information. This would also include the forwarding of monies before you can collect your winnings. Salmon Arm RCMP officer Carlos Tettolowski repeats the adage, “If it sounds too good to be true, it usually is.”

Assault arrest Two people have been arrested and charges of assault with a weapon are pending after Salmon Arm RCMP responded to a fight on May 31. Police went to a residence in the 1100 block of Shuswap Street after receiving a report that 10 people were there fighting. It was determined the altercation was a result of a previous assault. The fight resulted in non-life-threatening injuries that required hospital treatment for two of the people involved. A 41-year-old male resident of Tappen and a 34-year-old female from Salmon Arm were located and arrested shortly after the incident.

The Salmon Arm RCMP are participating in an effort to make homes across B.C. safer by supporting a province-wide gun amnesty throughout the month of June. With endorsement from the BC Association of Chiefs of Police, the program is running until June 30. During this time, residents of B.C. will be able to safely dispose of unwanted, documented or undocumented firearms, weapons and ammunition that have not been used in a criminal offence, without facing weapons-related Criminal Code charges. Deputy Commissioner Craig Callens, Commanding Officer of the RCMP in B.C., says that “we as police officers know full well the effects and impacts of having firearms inside homes, particularly if they are unsecured. Turning in unwanted firearms will eliminate the risks these weapons pose.” “This amnesty is a chance to take guns and ammunition out of homes and off our streets, and make our province safer for everyone. It’s an important partnership between police and British Columbians as we work together to minimize needless and avoidable tragedies,” said Shirley Bond, Minister of Justice and Attorney General. Anyone who possesses guns, ammunition and weapons, even imitation and pellet weapons, pepper spray and knives, are being asked to phone the local detachment on the non-emergency line at 250-832-6044. Police will go to their residence to pick up the weapon. It is important that residents do not transport these weapons themselves into police departments for security reasons. “We do not want people just walking in with their firearms,” notes Cpl. Carlos Tettolowski. For further information on the BC Gun Amnesty, how to turn in weapons and types of weapons accepted under this amnesty, visit

Capturing the Columbia Shuswap




After nearly four years as a cabinet minister in the Tolmie government, the Hon. R.W. Bruhn resigned from office. In an open letter to the premier, the Salmon Arm member explained he was leaving his cabinet post because of a disagreement concerning union government. Army officials were in town completing the transfer of the relief camps from the province to the dominion. Great interest was being shown in the Scotch Creek gold-seeking operations when it was reported that people came out with $1,000 in nuggets.


The Observer was awarded firts place in a typographical contest arranged by the Dominion Textile Company of Montreal. The contest included all weekly newspapers in Canada.

The relationship between aboriginal and non-aboriginal communities, agencies and governments in the Shuswap took another step forward on May 22. About 115 participants gathered at Quaaout Lodge for a Moving Forward Together workshop, delving into how to overcome barriers to effective regional communication. This follows a two-day workshop of the same name in April 2012, which began the process of developing regional planning. “I would say it was a successful event,” said Craig Duckchief of the Adams Lake Indian Band, one of the organizers. “I think if you look across the province, this is a unique relationship being continued; you don’t see this in other areas. We’re looking at making sure we’re respecting everybody and at the same time we want to be as inclusive as we can.” Similar to the 2012 workshop which included the chiefs of the Adams Lake, Neskonlith, Splatsin and Little Shuswap bands, as well as representatives of municipal governments and agencies from Chase, Enderby, Sicamous and Salmon Arm, this event attracted a diverse group. One important theme emerging from the workshop was the necessity to build relationships within the communities, said Duckchief, “and the understanding of aboriginal people is a strong theme that’s coming out.” The workshops are striving to achieve what was attempted and recorded in the 1910 Sir Wilfred Laurier Memorial document, notes Duckchief. “This is when Secwepemc chiefs, along with Okanagan and other chiefs, travelled to Ottawa. They understood there were going to be non-native people com-

ing into the community; what they were asking for was some dignified relationship building. They understood people wanted to settle, but they were looking for that relationship.” Today, he said, Secwepemc chiefs are echoing those concerns regarding treating people equally and respectfully as well as creating sustainable development. “You’ll hear a lot of the Secwepemc chiefs today in that framework, building that relationship, seeking to help one another…. “We do want to see growth in the Shuswap region, we do want to see our people involved in the larger community, and to break down those created walls and myths and want to have more understanding. We want to have a part in future growth… As the population increases, it’s important we have really good communication, develop a sense of the Shuswap, a pride of knowing the Shuswap region is aboriginal people who have lived here for that long (thousands of years), but also the Shuswap region is made up of diverse cultures, diverse interests. How do we work together and move forward in that direction for our future? It’s about long-term growth trying to be better.” He said education in the schools regarding actual history in the region is an important component of relationship building.

Another organizer, Janet McLean Senft of the Eagle Valley Community Support Society in Sicamous, agreed the workshop went very well, noting that individuals were encouraged to take on or contribute to specific tasks or areas of interest. A couple of issues she is interested in include making certain all people in all areas of the region have access to food – which some don’t due to a lack of food banks – as well as developing regional transportation. While there are a number of transportation links, nothing meets all the needs, she says, noting, for instance, if a person lives west of DeMille’s in Salmon Arm, there would be no way to get to the Okanagan College campus daily via the transit system. McLean Senft points out that a lot of people with large trucks hauling snowmobiles on large trailers come to the region for recreation but, because of limited transit, can’t park their trucks and tour the area via transit. She said it will now be up to the participants in the workshop to keep the momentum going. “Even if the only time you have is to send an email about what’s going on, or a link to what’s going on, to other people. Otherwise you end up with that ‘somebody ought to something’ thing’ that doesn’t go anywhere. Another workshop is expected to be held in the fall.

Marechal Foch medal Ovino Winery’s 2011 Momento was awarded double gold at the All Canadian Wine Championships this month for being the top scoring wine in the Marechal Foch category. The red wine was scored on a 100-point scale and judged on sensory components, varietal character and structural soundness.

Hair-raising anniversary Martina’s Classic Barber Shoppe celebrated 20 years of business on May 30. Martina Bopp’s Hudson Avenue shop has been there since 1993 and she has owned the shop since 1997. “Salmon Arm itself and the clients have been wonderful,” Bopp said. “Customers are here and you get to know them and they’re more than just customers, they’re your friends. And I could not have done it without the nice help I have in the barber shop with the ladies.”

Carri’s closure A longtime resident of Centenoka Mall, Carri’s Restaurant, has closed its doors. The restaurant opened in February 1995 and moved to their current location in 1997. After 18 years, Barry and Lynne Cross have decided to retire. On May 31 they served their last customer. Carri’s is having a garage sale all week to clear out supplies including booths, plates, silverware, a deep fryer and other restaurant materials.

Competing for the RoboCup By Jessica Klymchuk OBSERVER STAFF

Dancing robots and dedicated kids – three Grade 6 students will be showcasing their robotic skills at the international level this summer. Shuswap Middle School students Matthew Carson and Aiken Webster and Len Wood Middle School student Madison Smith are headed to Eindhoven, Netherlands for the World RoboCup Junior Competition from June 24 to July 1. The competition incorporates custom-built robots in different activities. Mentored by Kim Webster and Lisa Coombs-Smith, the students competed in the Western Canada RoboCup Junior competition last fall. They took first place in the primary dance division with a Star Wars routine that they wrote and choreographed. The robots were built and programmed by the students. “I’m incredibly proud of them. They’ve done so well, they have put in so much time and effort,” Webster said, adding it is a huge time commitment for the students consider-

ing they are doing this on top of their regular school work and extracurricular activities. Since they only found out in March that they were going to Worlds, they will be performing a revised version of their Star Wars routine. Webster said the team has been working on perfecting the routine after assessing their performance at Westerns. The World RoboCup Junior Competition will draw 2,500 competitors internationally.

Shuswap Middle School student Aria Izik-Dzurko took home first place at the Provincial Concours d’art oratorio French public speaking competition. The Grade 6 student placed first in her age category for early French immersion students. The annual competition was held at Simon Fraser University in Surrey. In 2012 more than 10,000 students in grades six through12 participated in the Concours in communities throughout B.C. School District #83 students Sunny Pickup, Daniya Zia, Casey Bourassa and Jaeden Izik-Dzurko also participated in Provincial Concours this year.

outlaws win two out of three The Shuswap Outlaws Midget Lacrosse team returned to league action Saturday with a double-header against the Kelowna Kodiaks. Quality passing and team play allowed the Outlaws to take the first game 7-3. Sean MacDonald stood out with a goal and three assists. In the second game, Shuswap used a four-goal performance from Austin Pugh to pace them to a 7-4 win and a sweep of Kelowna. After a slow start on Sunday versus the Penticton Heat, the Outlaws found themselves down 7-3 after two periods. In the third frame they clawed their way back to a 7-7 tie, only to have Penticton score the winner with just over four minutes to play. The loss was the first of the year for the Shuswap Midgets. Carson Hoult had two goals for Shuswap.

U18 boys TOYSL champs With the first-ever TOYSL (Thompson Okanagan Youth Soccer League) Cup Championship on the line, the final game of the regular season had two undefeated teams competing for first place in the U18 division. Penticton, who was two points ahead in the standings, travelled to Salmon Arm for a 6:30 game Sunday night. Shuswap FC needed a win to secure the top spot and home-field advantage in the playdowns for provincials, while Penticton needed only a tie to finish first. From the opening whistle, Shuswap was under attack from a skilled and strategic Penticton squad. Time and time again the Shuswap defence cleared away danger, and the keeper dealt with any shots on target. The Shuswap midfield-

ers also cut off errant passes and launched effective counterattacks that kept Shuswap in the hunt for the first goal of the game. The first half ended 0-0. With optimism building on the Shuswap sidelines from an enthusiastic crowd desperate for a goal from the home side, the local boys struck first at the 50-foot mark with a nip, a tuck, a cross and a decisive strike which nearly tore the netting off the frame. Score 1-0. The cat and mouse game continued with possession being more balanced and attacks coming more frequently for both sides. As pressure mounted, Penticton seized an opportunity to draw even in the 80th minute, but momentum did not follow. A composed Shuswap side quickly pro-

Minutes later with an advancing Shuswap midfielder headed for goal, Penticton hacked

him down, setting the stage for a game-winning penalty shot. Final score Shuswap 2, Penticton 1. A date for the final game in Salmon Arm to decide who will represent the Thompson-

Okanagan in the provincials will be set once the second-place team has been determined. Fan support was much appreciated throughout the season and especially during this decisive game.

Ted squeaks out win over Setters Last week’s Okanagan Women’s Masters league game found two Salmon Arms teams – Ted United and Setters Pub – matched up against one another on Tuesday night. It was a close, well-

fought game for the two local teams. United opened up the scoring with a quick goal by Kyla Sherman. Towards the end of the first half Tricia Martin sent a beautiful through ball for Cathy

Bartsch to run onto, and Bartsch, with great finish, put United up by one more. Solid defending and great ball movement by United enabled them to have numerous shots on the opposition’s net

but were unable to tally more goals against Setters’ formidable goaltender. Setters found the back of the net off a corner kick with minutes left in the game to make the final score

2-1 for United. It was a great competitive game played by both teams. Ted United’s next game is in Vernon on June 4 versus Season Sista’s. Setters plays Vernon’s Controllers in Salmon Arm.

SilverBacks hire former Vipers’ scout During his tenure with Vernon he helped them to Royal Bank Cup Championships in 2009 and 2010, and a runner-up in 2011. His resumé also includes winning the Fred Page Cup three times, the Doyle Cup three times and three BCHL Championships. He is Larry Black, a former scout with the Vernon Vipers and now the new assistant

Larry Black joining ’backs general manager and director of player personnel for the Salmon

Arm SilverBacks. “Blackie as he is known to his friends is also going to help me in the assistant GM role as this gives me the opportunity to go back behind the bench knowing that (he) will be helping me build Salmon Arm into a national champion,” said head coach and GM Troy Mick. The ’Backs also made two acquisitions

over the past week. They have signed forward 17-year-old Kamloops native Connor Brown-Maloski from the KIJHL’s Beaver Valley NiteHawks. The speedy forward earned the league’s Neil Murdoch Division Rookie of the Year honours this past season. He was an impact player for his club with 16 goals and 37 assists for 53 points.

Also joining the SilverBacks is forward Cam Berry (’94) from the Sicamous Eagles of the KIJHL. The forward from Chandler, Arizona amassed 24 goals, 20 assists for a total of 44 point as a rookie for the Eagles. Berry also played four games for the ’Backs in the playoffs and had one goal in the Penticton series.

Manthers pull out a win Shuswap Rugby at its finest. The Manther rugby team, based out of Enderby, played a tense yet good-humoured league game against the only Vernon rugby team, the Jackals, on June 1. Their last meeting in Enderby had a Vernon referee and a rookie squad of Manthers, losing 42-29. The team was short of players, needing 15 but only having 13 until Tyrone McCabe fixed his flat tire and Will Walton showed up. Graciously, the Jackals played only 15 and kept their subs until halftime.   Thankfully, the Manthers put the points on the board first with a solid effort stemming from the front row of Bosman, Danger Dave Micklefield and Sterling “Excalibur” Gathergood. There was a try scored in the corner by McCabe, Greg “old man” Seed to convert. A big effort by the Jackals to get to the Manthers’ six-yard-line. The Manthers passed and offloaded the ball all the way into Vernon’s 22-yard zone only to get yet another penalty, allowing the Jackals to kick the ball deep into the Manthers’ end. A great bounce for the Jackals, as their winger caught the ball from a punt from their standoff. The Manthers struggled as the Jackal forwards dominated the play. However, once the Manthers spun the ball out to Ryan “the Rock” Penner, he sprinted to

the-back pass to Jordie Baril who scored, making it look easy. the 10-yard line to make a dazzling Fijian flip, behind-the-back pass to Jordie Baril who scored, making it look easy. The Manthers’ McCabe, standing at 6’5, was boosted into the air by teammates Andy Brock and James Cookson, who are both over six feet, only using McCabe’s knees as handle grips. Needless to say, he looked like the Fantastic Four “Stretch” character that seemed to have a 14-ft wing span to grab any rugby ball that Danger Dave or the Jackals threw at him. Hence, he was the Man of the Match.   The second half proved to be a bit different as the Jackals utilized their four substitutions and didn’t like losing to just 15 players who were slowly running out of steam.   The Jackals were down on the Manthers try line but great tackling and defence stopped the Jackals’ four attempts to score.

Flanker Thomas Batty and Brock made some crunching tackles on the ex Canadian prop Garth Cook playing for the Jackals. The scrum collapsed and Danger Dave went down; his shoulder might have popped out and there were no spares to replace him. Fourteen men and 10 minutes left. The Jackals finally get a try, 21 to Manthers 20. The Manther kickoff went long and Cookson and Seed tied up the

Jackals to turn the ball over quickly, getting it out to Brad Shields. Another pass to Walton on the wing, who cut back inside to crash over the try line but land on top of a Jackal, ball held up, no try. Bashing at the Jackal try line for change, the Manthers quickly popped the ball out to Jeff Miller at standoff who shook off a tackler to score under the posts. Final 27-21. Next game is at Jackson, June 15, 1 p.m.

Manx brings Mysticssippi brand of music to Roots and Blues “Mysticssippi” blues man Harry Manx has spent years fusing eastern and western musical traditions with the blues. Switching effortlessly between conventional guitars, harmonica, banjo and the Mohan Veena “creating musical short stories that wed the Blues with the depth of classical Indian ragas.” Manx is a prolific artist, releasing 12 albums in a 12-year span with no signs of stopping. He has received seven Maple Blues Awards, six Juno nominations, CBC Radio’s Great

Canadian Blues Award. He received yet another Juno nomination in 2010 for Blues Album of the Year for his release Bread and Buddha. Born on the Isle of Man, Manx immigrated to Ontario with his parents when he was a child. He forged his distinctive style by studying at the feet of masters. During his formative years, he worked as a sound man in the well-known El Mocambo blues club in Toronto, and later engaged in a rigorous tutelage with Vishwa Mohan Bhatt in India. Bhatt was the inventor of the 20-stringed Mohan Veena, which has become Harry’s signature instrument. Manx’s time in India imbued his music with an intangible spiritual quality. “A song reveals who you are, it’s the vehicle for your message, your inspirational ideas or your story,” says Manx. “Like many people I’m interested in my own development as a person and that’s represented in my songs; I’m searching for truth through art and spirituality. “My songs are a synthesis of everything I’ve absorbed, all my experiences, and I share that. I’m glad that it means something to people.” Manx’s new CD Om Suite Ohm is now available, and is the first CD to feature his ‘Bollywood style’ electric slide techniques. He is joined by a fantastic group of musicians on the album playing Indian, African and western-style instruments. The CD features the song Carry My Tears, which earned Manx a Western Canadian Music Award nomination for Songwriter of the Year. This unique and compelling musician joins a talented and alwayseclectic lineup of artists this year at the Roots and Blues Festival. Find out at www.rootsandblues. ca.

The Canadian Cancer Society Relay for Life is takes to a new track Saturday, June 8. With 31 teams and 261 participants, the nautical-themed relay will be, “Drowning out cancer one wave at a time.” The Credit Union Crewzers, a long-standing team, are participating for their ninth time. Chris Verburg got the team going in 2004 and says they’ve had outstanding group every year. This year they have their biggest team yet with 17 members. And, including money raised so far this year, the Crewzers have raised $87,250 for the Canadian Cancer Society. “It’s another way we can support our community. We’ve had people on staff who have had cancer and we support them and they support us,” Verburg said. “Cancer is such a big thing it’s something that a lot of people have experienced or had it in their lives so (Relay for Life) is a good thing that people want to help out with.” In the spirit of fundraising, the Crewzers have shaved staff member’s heads, organized garage sales, held basket raffles, 50/50 draws and hosted their member barbecue. This year the barbecue drew a crowd on May 30. The team also plans to hold a barbecue to celebrate the opening of the credit union’s uptown location,

Local artwork well-packaged


Swingin Fiddles PRESENT

Top choice: Tatiana O’Donnell’s painting of a forest is featured on a Scottish brewery’s salute to its Canadian consumers.

By Barb Brouwer OBSERvER STAFF

Well-known in Canadian art circles, Tatianna O’Donnell has brewed herself a new audience. The Salmon Arm resident answered a call for artwork issued by Scottish brewery Innis & Gunn. Her oil painting, Forest Spectrum, will be featured on packaging for the company’s new limited-edition beer. An Innis & Gunn representative says the Canadian Cherrywood Finish is the company’s fifth annual brew in honour of the company’s loyal Canadian following. This year also marks the company’s third consecutive year the company has worked with the Society of Canadian Artists to find original artwork for its limited-edition beer packaging. O’Donnell says Forest Spectrum was inspired by a forest near Canmore, Alta. where she lived for four years and hiked often. One particular area called out to O’Donnell. “Part of the forest had been burned out and the texture and co-

lour contrast between the burnt-out area and the green forests was very interesting,” she says, noting, the company looked at several of her landscapes before asked for another submission. “I was really elated, it’s very exciting.” Long inspired by nature, O’Donnell has painted many paintings of landscapes and trees. “My landscapes are never totally realistic; there’s lots of texture and colour,” she says, noting her first inspirations were the abstract expressionists from Montreal of the ’60s. O’Donnell lived Enderby for several years prior to moving back to Alberta to be close to her grandchildren. O’Donnell and her husband soon learned their family had their own busy lives and headed west again two years ago – this time to an acreage in Salmon Arm. Raised in Montreal O’Donnell says she has been painting for most of her life. “I remember being homesick in junior high when I began copying things out of my home ec. book, then started

Salmon Arm fights back during Daffodil Month


itizens of Salmon Arm united in the fight against cancer this April during the Canadian Cancer Society Daffodil Month, making the annual campaign a great success. More than $9200.00 was raised during Daffodil Month in Salmon Arm through the sale of fresh cut flowers and daffodil pins. Today, over 60 per cent of Canadians diagnosed with cancer will survive at least five years after their diagnosis, thanks in large part to Society-funded cancer research. That’s more than double the survival rate in the 1940s. In addition to funding life-saving cancer research, money raised during Daffodil Month funds vital support services for people living with cancer, prevention initiatives and advocacy for healthy public policies. “The people of Salmon Arm joined the rest of the country in showing its support on Daffodil Day by wearing the daffodil – showing cancer we’re not afraid to fight back. On April 12th, the Salmon Arm Unit officially celebrated 75 years as a unit and in conjunction with the Canadian Cancer Society celebrated this milestone by inviting local dignitaries and the public to an Open House. We would like to thank the businesses, media, the citizens of Salmon Arm, and our generous volunteers for their ongoing support.

Healthy eating helped by keeping kids in the kitchen HealtHy bites

Serena Caner As a parent, there is nothing more frustrating than spending time cooking a nice meal only to have your children whine, “Yuck, what is this? I don’t want this!” (or my daughter, who might just throw it on the floor). Studies show that the best way to get your children to eat more foods is to involve them in the process.   This could be in the planning, shopping or food preparation stages. Cooking with your kids has other benefits as well: giving them a sense of accomplishment for contributing to the family, learning an important life skill, building self-confidence, and providing children with a hobby that is not “screen time.” Plus, if they like it, you may get some nights off cooking when they are a little older! Sounds great? To get things started, you may want to have a family meeting and get input on suppertime menu ideas. With busy schedules, it may only be realistic to start with one family meal per week.   If small children are helping with cooking, it is important to choose a time when you are feeling patient and not rushed. Meal preparation can be a little messy and timeconsuming, and you need to stay relaxed to keep the experience positive (this is supposed to be fun). Make sure your children are aware of basic kitchen safety and hygiene. Depending on the age of your child, you may need to establish some rules and stick to them. Here are some examples of tasks that children can perform. Under 5 years old: • Getting ingredients from the fridge; • Washing, tearing, or snapping some vegetables;

• Lining muffin tins; • Cutting out shapes

with a cookie cutter; • Rolling, mashing, stirring; • Measuring and pouring some ingredients; and • Helping set the table.

Older children: • Cracking and separating eggs; • Reading and choosing recipes by themselves; • Inventing their own easy-to-make recipes;

• Stirring food over the stove (may need adult supervision); • Grating cheese, cutting vegetables, fruits, etc. (using a plastic knife or dinner knife); and

• Washing dishes and putting them away. Wiping tables and counters. Finally, make sure to let your children know when they have done a job well. Thank them

for helping you in the kitchen, and celebrate eating together! -Serena Caner is a registered dietician who works at Shuswap Lake General Hospital.
