Province to fund bridge construction Hummingbird Creek: Announcement of $3 million project to prevent washouts. By Lachlan Labere

market news staff

The B.C. government has finally agreed to give Swansea Point residents what they have been calling for since last summer’s devastating flooding from Hummingbird Creek. On Tuesday, Transport Minister Todd Stone announced the province will be committing $3 million to the

construction of a new bridge next year along the creek over Highway 97A. Stone made the announcement while standing next to the existing culvert beneath the highway which rapidly clogged during last year’s flooding, sending water and debris over the highway and into residential areas in Swansea Point. Following the flood event, the

province contracted the firm Golder and Associates to assess the creek and provide recommendations for remedial work. Stone said Golder’s report is now public, and that it identifies the culvert as not meeting ministry requirements for flow capacity. “So today, along with colleague Greg Kyllo, MLA for Shuswap, I’m pleased to announce the government is remedying the situation; we

are going to construct a new, clearspan bridge on Highway 97A over Hummingbird Creek,” said Stone. “This bridge will replace the existing culvert right behind me here. It will result in a higher level of dependability. “The structure will also increase capacity for Hummingbird Creek See Bridge on page 2

Continued from front and will reduce the chance of a blockage like all of you experienced last year, thus ensuring that Highway 97A remains open for Shuswap residents and tourists as well.” In addition, Stone said the ministry will be doing additional work in the creek to further improve stream flows. “Some of the gravel bed load will be removed from the creek near the outlet into Mara Lake. Approximately 120 metres of creek bank adjacent to Hummingbird Creek Resort will also be strengthened,” said Stone, noting the work will be on top of the $565,000 worth of stream improvements already completed. Both works were applauded by locals gathered for the announcement. A number of them had attended a public meeting hosted by the ministry earlier this year. At that meeting, MOTI district manager Murray Tekano went over remedial work proposed for the creek which did not include what locals wanted most: a bridge or, at the least, a larger culvert. Since then, the Swansea Point Community Association, through a Freedom of Information request, was able to acquire a 2003 re-

port conducted by the province following the 1997 debris flow in Hummingbird Creek. In addition to a bridge that was proposed by the province but never built, the report recommends a 150,000-cubic metre debris berm with associated outlets and a retaining wall as the best option for mitigating future flood events. The report also states the frequency of debris flows is expected to increase, and that by completing the above option, with a bridge, the province would reduce the risk to life by 75 per cent. On July 24, 2013, NDP safety critic Kathy Corrigan spoke to the report and the related concerns of Swansea Point residents in the legislature. “This information and the severity of the circumstances were not shared with the public,” stated Corrigan. “I have talked to many of the residents. They are shocked. They have just received this. They are shocked by this report and the fact that it was withheld from them and that the decisions that they made, and that the government made subsequently, did not include any sharing of this information with them. They are very concerned.” Community Association president Dan Keely said he is still concerned, though the announcement goes a

Stone said the 2003 report looked at the circumstance of the day, and that since then a lot of work has been done on the creek. “The combination of the work that’s been done to date, as well as the replacement of this culvert with a new bridge, will provide the protection I think all the residents are looking for,” said Stone. “That all being said, we’re going to continue to monitor and, if further action is required, we’ll assess it at that time.” Stone says he expects construction will be completed next year.

Changing attitudes through song By Barb Brouwer

MARKET NEWS STAff

His mobility may be hampered but Canadian singer-songwriter Justin Hines’ spirit flies free and wide. Hines will perform in concert to benefit the Shuswap Association For Community Living Wednesday, Sept. 4 at the Prestige Harbourfront Resort. Hines’ appearance is part of a cross-Canada “Vehicle of Change Tour,” a venture that allows the talented artist to fulfil his desire to help others. “I don’t pretend there’s no struggle, but I am not the only one,” he says of Larsen syndrome, the progressive joint dislocation problem and curvature of his spine that severely limits his mobility and almost put an end to his career in 2009. “You can just see what my challenges are, but I think it’s all relative.” Conquering stage fright came early to

n Matt McKenna and James Bloemendal from Ash & Bloom will appear on-stage with Justin Hines Wedensday, Sept. 4. Hines who, at 14, won a Toronto radio contest giving him the opportunity to sing the national anthem at a Raptors game. “It’s probably the most terrifying gig you can have,” he says with a laugh. “I had instant confidence about how I could tackle the stage fright.” Hines’ smooth, soulful voice adds a richness to his lyrics that are based on the world and situations around him. “I see the world

through music – I see things in notes and life is a song to me,” he says. “I often wonder if visual artists view life as a landscape.” At 31, Hines has four albums and a Christmas album to his credit, music he describes as folk pop, music that resonates with his own life –viewed through a glass more than half full. Inherent in Hines’ view of life is the need to support others, something he does through his own charitable foun-

dation. And something he has taken across the country in a tour to benefit charities that ends in mid-October. “I thought it would be interesting to be inclusive of many different people,” he’s says, noting that in most tour stops, organizers reached out to charities through pledgemusic. com, a crowd-sourcing website. But, for the Salmon Arm concert, Hines says organizers searched for an organization that is strong, makes an impact and who might have difficulty getting resources. Money raised through the sale of CDs and books cover the cost of the tour so all ticket proceeds go back to charity. “The logistics have been made easier for me to make music and I am trying to pay it forward,” he says. That notion gets grateful applause from SACL executive direc-

tor Jo-Anne Crawford. “He’s a huge supporter of what we’re trying to accomplish and it falls on our 50th year of service,” she says. “Our goal as an agency is to work with community partners to look beyond people’s challenges and to celebrate their individual possibilities.” Tickets for Hines’ concert, which takes place at 7 p.m. in the grand ballroom of the Prestige are $20, and are available at Hidden Gems Bookstore.

Try volunteering, you just might like it

A wise person once said, time is like money, it isn’t how much you have, but what you do with what you have. Certainly a commendable aspiration, considering how short life really is. The realities of modern day life, however, seem to strip away at our precious time at an ever increasing rate, making it difficult to spend time wisely. Faced with these tugs on personal time, it is remarkable and noteworthy that many among us find the time to volunteer. For that we are grateful. Volunteers help build welcoming, supportive and rich communities. Rich, not in the sense of wealth, but rather in terms of activities, events and services that serve to enrich the lives of everyone in the community. In most communities, sports of any kind would not exist without the community members who volunteer their time to coach. Service organizations such as the Rotary Club or the Lions Club, to name a couple, offer their time in service to the community, in addition to raising money for special community projects. Then there is the diverse set of events from entertainment to sports, from Aboriginal culture to seniors to children’s activities. All of this free of charge, all of it organized and run by free helpers. Volunteers always say they give their time to give back to the community. Giving back to a community you care for is always time well spent. Try it, you just might like it. -Penticton Western News

OpiniOn

an affiliation with motorcyclists There was a time, long ago, when I had a full head of hair. I mention this only because the feeling of the wind blowing through my hair is more of a figure of speech for me now than it is a reality. Having said that, I do remember when I was a kid, that I used to steal my brother’s two-wheel bike. I remember racing away from our yard like I’d just knocked over the local bank. I’ll never forget the feeling of absolute freedom, not to mention the adrenaline. Any chance I got, I’d take off and head for the hills – until the time my brother found me out and was waiting for me when I got home. My efforts were rewarded with a knuckle sandwich. After that I figured I had more or less earned the right to ‘borrow’ my brother’s bike any time I wished. My first motorized vehicle was a pale green 1958 Chevy pick-up truck. The body was so rusted out that the fenders flapped if you went over a certain speed.

The GreaT OuTdOOrs James Murray It too gave me a sense of freedom. I spent many an hour driving backroads that led to all sorts of new fishing spots. When I was in my late 20’s, I acquired a 450 cc Honda CL motorcycle. That thing also got me into some pretty decent fishing holes. Looking back though, I’d have to say that the thing I enjoyed the most about riding a motorcycle was the special feeling of having the open road ahead of you - especially when it was some road full of twists and turns. There’s just something about the feel of the wind on your face, as well as the occasional insect in your teeth or up your nos-

tril, to make you feel a part of nature. And while I know it may sound like a bit of a stretch to some people, I have also experienced that feeling of freedom when I’ve been out in a boat. Granted the sense of speed attained from a twostroke, six horsepower Evinrude may pale when compared to a moving vehicle or a motorcycle, but there is still the sense of forward motion combined with the sound of an internal combustion engine labouring under the influence of an open throttle. My point being that I really do feel a sense of freedom when I’m heading out on the lake in my little 12 foot aluminum fishing boat – freedom from all the restraints of daily life. Sometimes, on a particularly hot, lazy summer afternoon, when the air is just hanging there lifeless, I’ll crank the throttle - just enough to create a bit of a breeze on my face. I admit it’s not quite like speeding along on a motorcycle, but it does cool you off. Whether winding along

some dusty old backroad or just sitting out on the lake in my boat, with my eyes shut, feeling the warmth of the sun on my face, I always find there is a special sort of freedom to be experienced just getting away from everything and every one. Now before anyone gets the idea that I am anti-social - which I probably am – I have to say that I have come up with what I think might be a way to combine my longing to hit the open road on a motorcycle and my lifelong passion for fishing. I think I might start up a motorcycle gang – well maybe more of a loose affiliation of motorcycle enthusiasts who also like to go fishing. We could all wear black leather jackets (with our collars turned up) and motorcycle boots and we could have a crest on the back of our jackets declaring our membership in the gang. The crest could be made up of two crossed fish skeletons and we could call ourselves the Hell’s Anglers. Just an idea.

Calgarian missing, presumed drowned By Lachlan Labere

MARKET NEWS STAff

Twenty-five year old Kevin Boutilier, a Calgary native and former WHL Chilliwack Bruin, is believed to have drowned Saturday after diving into rough water to retrieve a hat. Sicamous RCMP Sgt. Dave Dubnyk reported Tuesday that police and victim services staff continue to provide support to family and friends of Kevin Boutilier, whose body has yet to be found. Boutilier is currently being classified as a missing person and presumed drowned. On Aug. 24, at approximately 4:15 p.m., police received a report of a possible drowning on Shuswap Lake in Cinnemousun Narrows. Police and marine rescue boats attended with BC Am-

bulance paramedics onboard. At the scene, officers learned that a group of people were on a rented houseboat when the hat of one of the occupant’s blew off into the water. Some of the people dove in to retrieve it. “At the time, the weather was becoming inclement and rough water conditions caused the houseboat to drift away from those in the water,” says Dubnyk. “Two of the individuals started to indicate they were having difficulties, requiring others in the water to come to their aid.” When last seen, Boutilier, appeared to be in distress, going under several times before failing to resurface. All the others involved made it back to the boat. Dubnyk says Shus-

wap Search and Rescue and the RCMP conducted a thorough search of the area, including nearby shorelines, by water and air. “Mr. Boutilier has not yet been recovered,”

Kevin Boutilier said Dubnyk. “Options for Mr. Boutilier’s recovery are currently being considered; however, this particular area of the lake is very deep and the terrain on the bottom of the lake presents challenges for divers and for the use of sonar equipment.”

Boutilier played for the Chilliwack Bruins from 2006-08, logging 66 games as a gritty blueliner for the expansion Western Hockey League squad. Former teammates have posted on his Facebook page. “Thoughts and prayers for family and friends,” wrote former Bruin captain Nick Holden. “Rest in peace Boots.” “Boots brother, I remember the first time we met and I liked you right away,” added Matt Cline. “So sad to hear this.” In lieu of flowers, the Boutilier family asks that donations be made in Kevin’s name to KidsSport Calgary to honour his love of sports. -With files from the Chilliwack Progress

Blind Bay Resort Development Application, Bylaw 901-65 Press Release # 2 - August 25, 2013 In April, I wrote to the community regarding articles written about our proposed final development in Blind Bay. My intent was to respond to concerns expressed, which according to the many kind letters, notes and personal words of support and encouragement that have come our way since, was accomplished. I am now pleased to announce we’ve taken several important steps forward towards a final successful rezone. I’d like to address them as part of our commitment to be transparent fully throughout this process. In cooperation with the CSRD and our senior planner, we commissioned an update to an existing Riparian Area Report we completed previously, and then registered it provincially. This RAR report has been considered fully in our plans, and we’ve accomplished key steps to improve our environmental footprint as a result that includes the proposed public access. In addition, we were asked to complete an Archaeology study, which we ordered several months ago. The preliminary findings are posted on our web page, www.blindbayresort. com, for you to review. Our development proposal preserves a small area of historical interest, and is a positive example of respect for our indigenous neighbors. This past Thursday, we hosted an advertised community Open House to share specific details of our plans, where we provided a handout complete with sketches that pertains to our rezone, Bylaw 901-65. I’ve posted this document on our web-site, and encourage you to examine it at your convenience. With over 70 people in attendance, I had the opportunity explain the five development areas identified by our CSRD senior planner, and to field questions from concerned citizens. Of particular interest was the inclusion of a “residential” status over two Development Areas, placed at my request to ensure compliance to a planned Electrical Code Directive that addresses park model additions. One attendee expressed concern we were potentially creating a high-density residential development where the resort could become home to a large permanent group of residents: This is not possible, through zoning controls written into the bylaw, and additional strata rules we’ve placed in the development. Our guests primarily come for the prime summer weeks only, leaving us pretty much vacant the remainder of the year. We are trying to build a shoulder season, to help make our business and those around us more viable, and asked for the residential

To the Community of Blind Bay, Area C residents, and all concerned citizens: designation to be code-compliant moving forward. Another individual expressed a concern that our marina was for exclusive use for 63 non-waterfront owners. This also is not possible, as we do not provide a ‘free’ exclusive slip to resort lot owners as might a condo development. The management company retains sole ownership of the marina, and RV lot owners must book and rent their slips alongside the public campers who frequent our property. This ensures a viable moorage facility for all to enjoy, and allows us to open up slips for our community residents outside of the prime four week summer demand. We actually accommodate several hundred boats each season already, many of which are those of our neighbors. Several people commented on our proposed public access: Desired by all, this access grants the public access to both the foreshore and to our marina, through a delightful promenade and observation platform. It also protects the area of historical significance, and eliminates the tensions created by boaters who occupy rented slips while they access the nearby store. By moving into deeper water, we protect our swimming children, remove boat traffic from the sensitive shallow areas, and improve access for our adjacent neighbors to enjoy their foreshore area. This is a win-win for all, at our expense. Overall, we consider the meeting to be a great success, and thank the many fine people who took time to listen and share their thoughts. Thanks too to our Senior Planner and Area C Director, who took the time to observe the meeting and gain insight into the development issues. Next on our schedule shall be a Second Reading, after which a Public Hearing will be set. We hope this will be in early October, to catch as many locals as possible before the annual migration south. We ask that you join us in this final step, where you the public are given the opportunity to make your voice heard. We sincerely hope you will support us, and endorse the plan we’ve labored so long on to complete a first class resort destination.

Enrolment still in decline

Back to school: District anticipates 240 fewer students. By Richard Rolke BLACK PRESS

It’s almost back to the books for North Okanagan-Shuswap students. Summer comes to an end when classes resume throughout the district Tuesday. “The beginning of the school year is always an exciting time for students, parents and teachers,” said superintendent Glenn Borthistle. “We are looking at a great year ahead for our students.” The district’s focus for 2013/14 will include early education and specifically reading, building resiliency among special needs students and student/ community engagement. It’s anticipated there will be about 6,000 students in the district, down 240 from last year. “It’s a continuing pattern that we’re seeing due to demographic changes,” said Borthistle of an aging

A reduction in enrolment has financial implications as the district receives $6,900 per student from the Ministry of Education. Earlier in 2013, the district slashed $1.8 million from the 2013/14 budget. Principal and viceprincipal time was reduced so they can teach more and there were 12 teachers lost. All supply budgets were trimmed and storefront schools in Armstrong, Enderby, Salmon Arm and Si-

camous were restructured. Tight finances are likely to go away any time soon as enrolment continues to shrink. “We anticipate further tough decisions to make,” said Borthistle. And there wouldn’t be a return to classes without the possibility of job action. Contract talks between the Canadian Union of Public Employees and the B.C.

Public School Employers’ Association came to a halt early in August. The union includes bus drivers, custodians, education assistants, youth workers, clerical staff and tradespeople. “I feel fairly optimistic about the situation being resolved,” said Borthistle. “The question will be funding any settlements reached at the table.”

Tips to keep produce fresh Living WeLL Approximately 30 per cent of produce is discarded after purchase because of spoilage. That is a large waste of money. Contrary to popular belief, many fruits and vegetables should not be stored in the refrigerator in sealed bags. This is because some fruits, like apples, emit ethylene gas which promotes ripening and many leafy greens need to breathe in order to stay moist. Taking the time to store produce properly can keep vegetables and fruits perky for a lot longer. Here are a few of my favourite tips. Check the settings in your fruit or vegetable bins to see if they are set to high or low for moisture. High moisture helps leafy things like chard, lettuces, or bok choy and root or thick skinned vegetables such as potatoes or melons prefer low moisture. Greens can be washed, spun dry, and wrapped in a paper towel and placed loosely in a plastic bag.  Leafy greens, celery, green onions, and herbs can be placed upright in containers with a bit of water and loosely covered with a plastic bag. Most other vegetables and fruit should not be washed until just before being served. Avoid storing onions with potatoes. Onions emit a gas that can cause potatoes to sprout. Keep onions and potatoes away from each other and store each in a cool, dry, well-ventilated place. Fruit and vegetables with thicker skin or

rinds should be stored in cool, preferably dark places (7-10 degrees). Most homes today do not have a place that is in this temperature range so you are very lucky if you have an old fashioned root cellar. If you do not have a root cellar, there are some specialty products you can use such as vegetable storage bags specially designed to let gas out and keep moisture in. Check stored produce regularly to see if anything is beginning to spoil. Discard

“Check stored produce regularly to see if anything is beginning to spoil. Discard spoiling produce right away to prevent it from spreading...” spoiling produce right away to prevent it from spreading to other produce. Some produce departments have manuals available that describe differing preparation and storage of produce. Check with your store’s produce manager. Buying in bulk may seem like a bargain, but if the produce spoils then the savings are gone. Ask friends or family if they want to split that 10 kg bag of onions. Forming a buying group in the fall can mean big savings if you can share and store case lots. -The author, Rose Soneff, is a community nutritionist with Interior Health.

CAN CHIROPRACTIC HELP ME?

We are often asked: “What’s the best way of finding out whether a Dr. of Chiropractic can help my problem?” We believe the answer can be found in a complete consultation and examination.

Immunizations for adults Memories of childhood days when every visit to the pediatrician seemed to culminate in a needle in the arm may drum up an accelerated heartbeat each time you walk into the doctor’s office as an adult. But the chances you’ll be given a shot are slim, right? Not necessarily. Despite what many think, immunizations do not always cease once you’ve reached a certain age. There are certain recommended inoculations that adults can receive to protect themselves from illness. Although many people receive the brunt of their vaccines early on in life, you’re never too old to give up on immunizations entirely. The Immunization Action Coalition, in conjunction with the Centers

for Disease Control and Prevention, list certain vaccines that are recommended for adults. If you are planning on traveling overseas, there may be more vaccines you need to prevent illness or injury. By the time you reach 65 years of age, it is adviseable to have checked off this list of immunizations and work with your doctor to create a vaccination schedule. * Influenza: This vaccine is recommended annually in the fall or winter. * Pneumococcal polysaccharide (PPSV): Individuals between the ages of 19 to 64 should check with their healthcare provider to see if they require this vaccine. Smokers may need one to two doses. Individuals 65 and older are recom-

mended to get this vaccine if they have never before been vaccinated. * Tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis (Tdap): This is an adult version of the combined whooping cough vaccine. If you are an adult and frequently come into contact with infants, it is adviseable for the infants’ safety to have received a whooping cough vaccine. Tetanus is required every 10 years. * Hepatitis B: If you have a specific risk for Hep B, you may need to take this vaccine. It is given in three doses. * Hepatitis A: Again, risk factors will signify if you need this immunization. This is a two-dose vaccine. * Human papillomavirus (HPV): HPV is responsible for many cases of cervical cancer. It is

adviseable for women age 26 or younger or men age 21 or younger to receive the HPV vaccine. This vaccine is given in three doses over six months. * Measles, mumps, rubella: Measles has slowly been making a comeback despite have nearly been eliminated in the United States. Adults should have at least one dose of MMR in their lifetime. Check with a doctor if you require a second dose. * Varicella: If you’ve never experienced chickenpox, or only received one dose of this vaccine when younger, you may require another dose. Chickenpox outbreaks can be more severe in adults. * Meningococcal: This vaccine is recommended for individuals ages 19

to 21 who live in a residence hall or close contact with others. Meningococcal is best known as a cause of meningitis and sepsis. It can be transmitted through saliva and occasionally through close, prolonged general contact with an infected person. * Shingles: The zoster vaccine is administered to keep shingles at bay. Shingles comes from the same virus that causes chickenpox, and individuals who have had chickenpox are at a higher risk for experiencing shingles, which can be very painful, later in life. The vaccine is recommended for those ages 65 and up. Vaccines are not only for the young. Certain immunizations can keep you healthy and are recommended throughout life.

Eve was just 2 years old when she was put on her first asthma inhaler to control a terrible cough that she couldn’t get rid of. For almost 3 years after this her cough continued to get worse despite being prescribed both steroid and reliever inhalers. Throughout this time she missed countless days of nursery and school as she caught so many upper respiratory infections and ear infections. It seemed as though she was always on antibiotics for something. At this point I sought advice about her condition from a private GP. It was around this time that I took Eve to Dr Darren McNaughton for a chiropractic assessment and treatment. Both Dr. Darren and our private GP advised us that they didn’t think that Eve had asthma. I then consulted with Eve’s asthma nurse and started to gradually wean her off her inhalers making sure that she received regular chiropractic care throughout to help. It is thanks to Dr. Darren’s assessment and treatment of all aspects of Eve’s health that has meant that she has managed well without any inhalers long term now and that her immune system is stronger that ever. She does still catch the odd bug but that is just normal for a child her age. The good thing is that her body now responds quicker and fights the bugs far better than before. This is undoubtedly due to the monthly adjustments that she happily gets to make sure she is fighting fit. All of our family now receive regular treatment. We all see it as a normal health check. I would strongly recommend chiropractic care for anyone, especially someone with problems similar to Eve’s. E. Loughlan

Feeling the sting of summer ShuSwap paSSion Jim Cooperman Have you been stung yet? One of the joys of country living in the summer is enjoying a meal on the deck, but this year the wasps have driven many of us inside. It has been a bit more than a decade since the last major wasp summer and consequently I did some research to determine the factors that likely resulted in this year’s wasp population explosion in the Shuswap and throughout the southern interior. Consultant and former B.C. Provincial Entomologist Hugh Philip provided many details that coincided with the information available on the Internet. Weather is the key factor that determines the size of wasp populations. Only the wasp queens hibernate over the winter, and when they emerge from the ground in the spring their first task is to find a suitable nesting place and lay their first eggs. The initial brood is key to the success of the colony, as the first four to seven workers take over maintenance that includes foraging, building new cells, feeding the larvae and insulating the nest. Survival of the queens during the winter is directly related to winter temperatures, and last winter was particularly mild. The early spring colonies are also dependent on the weather, as it is crucial that the first workers survive to ensure the hives grow and prosper. Dry, warm weather boosts the growth of the colonies as the workers can then spend less time concerned with thermoregulation and more time foraging.

A certain amount of moisture in the spring is also crucial, as wet conditions encourage the growth of caterpillars, which are a key food source for the wasps. This spring there was a warm spell at the end of April, which provided a boost to the new wasp colonies, and relatively dry weather in May and June further encouraged growth. Despite their nasty stings, wasps are considered a beneficial species because they prey on other insect pests, including flies, crickets, caterpillars and grasshoppers. There are primarily two types of yellow jackets in the Shuswap, the western wasp and the sandhill wasp. The western species builds nests in the ground and the sandhills build either aerial nests in trees or inside walls. Recently another species, the European paper wasp, has been spreading west and was first seen in Salmon Arm in 2005. This species forms small aerial colonies and is becoming a worrisome pest for fruit growers and vineyards as it feeds primarily on cherries and grapes. A fascinating characteristic of wasps is the feedback loop cre-

ated by the larvae that produce a sweet secretion used by the workers for energy. Wasps often cause more problems towards the end of summer, as they are in search of sugars and carbohydrates to replace the declining amount of secretions when the colony switches over to producing drone (male) and new queen larvae that do not produce the secretions. The wasps here are now consuming our entire late crop of everbearing strawberries, hollowing out each one even before they are fully ripe. There are many tips available to avoid attracting wasps such as avoiding wearing scents, or using hairspray and fragranced cosmetics. Traps are only useful if placed at least 12 metres away from where you plan to spend time outside, otherwise the traps will attract the wasps to you. Swatting can also increase numbers and if you do kill one, it produces a scent that attracts more. We may indeed be forced to endure a greater number of high population wasp years as the climate warms. Warmer weather that lasts longer provides more opportunities for

n Weather is the key factor in determining the size of wasp populations. all insects that produce multiple populations to increase in numbers, including mosquitoes and serious pests such as aphids and mites. Given the rate at which the planet is warming, wasp stings may indeed become more common. So far this year, I have been stung three times; what about you? (Note: There is one more Shuswap summer camp that was left out

of my column on the topic. The very rustic Ruckell Point Scout Camp is located on 25 acres northeast of Anglemont across from the Cinnemousun Narrows. It is a wilderness camp with 12 cabins, a log lodge and a large swimming area with a dock protected by a log boom. The Kamloops Scout Association runs the camp for Scouts Canada.)

Light ‘em up folks. Campfires are once again permitted in the Salmon Arm Fire Zone. The Kamloops Fire Centre rescinded the ban at noon Monday, after heavy rains on the weekend reduced the wildfire risk in the area. But those who choose to light campfires must follow provincial regulations. These include:  • The campfire must not exceed the permitted half-metre wide by a half-metre high. • Flammable material (such a twigs and pine needles) must be removed from around the campfire area and this fuel-free area must be maintained while the campfire is burning. • A shovel or at least eight litres of water must be on site to properly extinguish the fire. • Never leave a campfire unattended. • The ashes must be cool to the touch before you leave the area.  Category 2 and 3 open fires remain prohibited for the entire Kamloops Fire Centre. This prohibition includes all open fires larger than a half-metre high by a half-metre wide, fires with a burn registration number, industrial burning, fireworks, sky lanterns and burning barrels. Anyone found in violation of an open fire ban may be issued a ticket for up to $345. If that fire leads to a wildfire, those responsible may be fined up to $1 million, spend up to three years in prison and be held accountable for associated firefighting costs.  These prohibitions cover all BC Parks, Crown lands and private lands, but do not apply within the boundaries of local governments that have forest fire prevention bylaws. Check with local governments for any other restrictions before lighting a fire.

n MP Colin Mayes presents Jack Barker with a Diamond Jubilee Medal at the Salmon Arm Legion Branch #62 on August 22 for his service in the Second World War.

Fund set up to help fire victims A single mother needs help for herself and her children, following a July 1 fire that destroyed the family’s Gleneden home. While Nanci Penkhert has acquired some basic necessities such as beds and a table, she needs help acquiring other items. “She needs kitchen items such as food, pots and pans, spices, that sort of stuff that costs so much money,” says friend Beth Mack, who has set up the Nanci Penkhert Fund as the Salmon Arm

Savings and Credit Union. “And her son is going back to college and all his stuff got destroyed in the fire.” Mack says she believes Penkhert was insured, but is having issues with the insurance company. In the meantime, staff at Rona have raised some funds and had donations of furniture and clothes. “But they are still in need and having a difficult time,” Mack says, noting that anyone with donations of items other than cash

can call her at Rona at 250-832-7044, or send her an email at store133@rona.ca, attention Beth Mack.   The fire, which

was reported at 9 p.m. Monday, July 1 when the family was away from the home, totally destroyed the residence.

’Backs look to trim roster With three exhibition games already behind them, the Salmon Arm SilverBacks have been one of the busiest teams in the BCHL preseason and head coach Troy Mick wouldn’t have it any other way. Mick, back behind the bench after moving exclusively to the front office last season, prefers to make roster decisions based on game action. After a 2-1 loss to the Merritt Centennials last Thursday, a 5-1 home win over the Vernon Vipers Friday and a 7-5 loss to Vernon Saturday, he’s been able to pare the roster down to 28. That means six more cuts are needed to reach the mandated 22 for the start of the season.

“I’m not one that likes to have 45 kids hanging around when they may have other options within the league,” said Mick. “When you play games right away, that will cement the roster. We’re putting a lot of heat on our veterans; we’ve got to make some tough decisions pretty quick.” Also, Riley Hunt and Brendan Kennedy will be on the long-term injured list to begin the season and won’t count towards the 22-man roster. The ’Backs host the Penticton Vees tonight (Friday) at 7 p.m. and then visit the Vees Saturday. Their home opener is Friday, Sept. 13 against Vernon.

Another defeat for the environment

GlobAl Views Gwynne Dyer The world has failed us,” said Ecuador’s President Rafael Correa. “I have signed the executive decree for the liquidation of the Yasuni-ITT trust fund and, with this, ended the initiative.” What might have been a model for a system that helps poor countries avoid the need to ruin their environment in order to make ends meet has failed because the rich countries would not support it. In 2007, oil drillers found a reservoir of an estimated 846-million barrels of heavy crude in Yasuni National Park, in Ecuador’s part of the Amazon. But, the park is home to two indigenous tribes that have so far succeeded in living in voluntary isolation — and it is listed by UNESCO as a world biosphere reserve. A single hectare of Yasuni contains more species of trees than all of North America. Ecuador, which cannot access finance on international markets, desperately needs money and the oil meant money — an estimated $7.2 billion over the next decade. Nevertheless, Ecuadorians were horrified by the pollution, deforestation and cultural destruction the

drilling would cause: A large majority of them opposed drilling in the park. Then Energy Minister Alberto Acosta had an idea. What if Ecuador just left the oil in the ground? In return, Acosta hoped the rest of the world would come up with $3.6 billion (half of the forecast income from oil revenues) over the next decade, to be spent on non-polluting energy generation like hydroelectric and solar power schemes and on social programs to help Ecuador’s many poor. The payoff for the foreign contributors to this fund would come mainly from the fact the oil under Yasuni would never be burned, thereby preventing more than 400-million tonnes of carbon dioxide from going into the atmosphere. Only a drop in the bucket, perhaps, but if the model worked, it could be applied widely elsewhere, offering poor countries an alternative to selling everything they can dig up or cut down. The idea won the support of the United Nations Development Programme, which agreed to administer the Yasuni-ITT trust fund. It was set up in 2009 and the money started to come in. But, it didn’t flood in; it just trickled. Chile, Colombia, Turkey and Georgia donated token amounts. Brazil and Indonesia (which would certainly benefit from the same sort of arrangement) promised donations eventually, but didn’t actually put any money up.

Among the developed countries, Spain, Belgium and France also promised donations, Italy wrote off $51 million of Ecuadorian debt and Germany offered $50 million worth of technical assistance to the park. And that was it. Not a penny from Canada, the United States, Britain, Australia, the Netherlands or Scandinavia. However, four years later, the pledges amounted to $116 million. Actual cash deposits were only $13 million. So, last week, Correa pulled the plug. “It was not charity we sought from the international community,” Correa said, “but co-responsibility in the face of climate change.” Maybe Correa could have waited a bit longer, but the idea was always Acosta’s baby, and Acosta ran for president against Correa last February and lost. It was also Acosta who led the successful drive to make Ecuador the first country to include the “rights of nature” in its new constitution. This is a radical break from traditional environmental regulatory systems, which regard nature as property. Ecuadorian law now recognizes the inalienable rights of ecosystems to exist and flourish. It gives people the right to petition on the behalf of ecosystems, and requires the government to take these rights seriously. Like the trust fund, this is an idea that may ultimately bear much fruit. For the moment, however, it’s just too great an intellectual and

political leap to demote the property rights of actual voters (and campaign contributors) to a status below the right to survive and thrive of mere ecosystems – even though we all depend on these ecosystems to survive ourselves. So we continue on our merry way to a global meltdown — and this just in from London! Fracking is now more important than wind power! The British government has announced a new tax regime for fracking described by the chancellor, George Osborne, as “the most generous for shale [gas] in the world.” Not only that, but there will be “no standard minimum separation distance” between a fracking rig and people’s houses. Planners considering drilling applications “should give great weight to the benefits of minerals extraction, including to the economy.” In practice, that means they can drill wherever they want, including your front garden. Whereas local people will now have a veto on the construction of any wind turbines in their neighbourhood. Prime Minister David Cameron’s office explained that “it is very important that local voters are taken into account when it comes to wind farms … if people don’t want wind farms in their local areas they will be able to stop them.” It’s OK to ruin the planet, but God forbid that you should ruin the view.

Lower speed, scooter licensing proposed By Jeff Nagel BLACK PRESS

B.C. cities will next month debate proposals to cut the default speed limit on municipal streets to 40 kilometres per hour and to force licensing and regulation on users of motorized wheelchairs and scooters. The two proposals are among transportation-related resolutions that will be on the floor at the Union of B.C. Municipalities convention in Vancouver in late September. The City of Victoria is behind the proposed cut in default speed limits from the current 50 km/h – if the lower 40 km/h default limit is adopted by the province, municipalities could still selectively designate specific roads for higher speeds. The resolution asks for provincial aid installing new signage, including signs for roads where the speed limit would be different from the default 40 km/h. The current default is dangerously high on some residential streets, argues Victoria Coun. Shellie Gudgeon. “Even laneways can be 50 km/h if it’s not signed,” Gudgeon told Black Press. “It’s far too fast for neighbourhoods and families.” Ian Tootill of the motorist advocacy group SENSE BC predicts drivers wouldn’t obey a 40 km/h limit and said there’s little evidence of low-speed fatalities or injuries that could be prevented with an even lower limit. “The people who are driving this agenda are the people who underneath it all are anti-car,” Tootill said. “A lot of these people don’t even drive.” He said another example of bureaucratic overkill is the “laughable” proposal to regulate motorized wheelchairs and small mobility scooters. Sidney council argues seniors drive them too fast on sidewalks without any regulation. Their resolution to UBCM urges the prov-

ince to regulate the use of motorized mobility aids, including wheelchair and scooters, and require training, testing and licensing of operators. There’s currently no registration, insurance or licence required to operate them in B.C. The province has indicated to UBCM it intends to develop a coordinated plan for safe operation of motorized scooters, including possible amendments to the Motor Vehicle Act. The provincial coroner in 2008 issued recommendations supporting scooter regulation after several scooterriding seniors died in crashes with vehicles. The B.C. Coalition of People with Disabilities opposes the idea. “These are mobility devices that people need to get out into the community,” said executive director Jane Dyson. “Such a regulation would impede their independence.” Surrey-White Rock MLA Gordon Hogg says he doesn’t sense it’s a major problem but added “some authority” is probably needed, preferably through provincial law that lets individual cities regulate the machines if they deem it necessary. “People are generally pretty well-behaved,”

n The UBCM will be discussing proposals to require licensing on the users of scooters and motorized wheelchairs. he said. “Public policy generally should not be developed for exceptions,” he said. White Rock deputy mayor Grant Meyer questioned the impact enforcing scooter regulations would have on the city’s already busy bylaw staff. But White Rock Coun. Larry Robinson said he’s all for it. “There has to be some type of regulation, including you to be approved or prescribed to use them,” he said. Robinson said he has seen people operating electric wheelchairs holding up traffic. And he said he knows people who don’t have a medical need for the machines but just like to use them to get around. “I don’t think you should be able to walk into a store and walk out with an electric scooter

and just drive it wherever you want. There has to be some qualification for the use.” Another potentially controversial resolution coming before UBCM is a call for the province to allow the use of photo radar to ticket speeders in school and playground zones. The proposal from Penticton council argues that police-staffed speed traps and volunteer-run speed reader boards are labour-intensive and have had limited success in reducing speeding. Revenue from fines would be shared on a negotiated basis with local municipalities. The UBCM executive hasn’t taken a position on the idea but the province has always firmly said it has no intention of reintroducing photo radar, which was eliminated in 2001.

Heat looking to carve out great team By Cavelle Layes

MARKET NEWS STAff

The locker rooms are filling and Heat fever is ramping up as more than 70 players take to the ice this week for the team’s main camp. With the hockey season just weeks away, the Heat’s coaching team has begun the difficult task of choosing this year’s team. This is the team’s third year in the KIJHL, and head coach Brad Fox is entering the season with one goal in mind – to hang a banner. “Quite simply, it’s about winning now,” Fox explained. “We have had enough learning curves, now it is time to focus on winning.” While the team’s second season had better results than the first, it was a far cry from the first-place position they longed for.

This year, Fox wants to make a difference – a challenge he says he is more than up for. The team has started with switching up the timing of their camp for the first time. While many of their opposing teams have already completed their team tryouts, the Heat have only just begun. This approach, says Fox, has a number of pros and cons – the obvious con being that, by hosting their camp first every other year, they had first look at all the players. “We wanted to see what would come down the pipes from Junior A,” said Fox, explaining why they decided to switch things up this year. The team has also done some extensive recruiting, and is expecting players from across B.C., Alberta and even a few potential hopefuls from the

United States to be at this years camp. Fox said that he has a number of skilled players that he is very interested in coming to the camp.  “There are too many to name,” he said, noting no one’s spot on the team is solidified just yet, and even those who donned the Heat jersey last year might not make the cut this year. “Everyone needs to earn their place,” Fox said, explaining that he is looking for a skilled team who will work well together. Despite players just coming out of summer vacation, Fox is expecting every one of the players to be in their top condition and ready to play. “We aren’t joking around, we want to have a winning team,” he said. “We are closer to achieving this than we were three years

ago when we started and that’s exciting.”  The tryouts officially began Thursday morning with drills and skill tests taking place throughout the day. The camp will continue throughout the week, and Chase residents are encouraged to make their way to the Art Holding Arena to get their first glimpse of their potential new players. “It is important that they are part of it,” Fox said, explaining that so much of their existence relies on the community. “We have said it from day one, this is their team.” There is a black and white game scheduled for Sunday morning at 9 a.m., and all of the Chase community is invited to come out and cheer on the players they think should make the cut – or to simply get their long awaited hockey fix.

Chase athletes bring home medals After a tough fight for first, the South Central respectfully claimed second place as the 2013 BC Senior Games came to a close. Fraser Valley’s Zone 3 was named the official winner with a total of 403 medals claimed. South Central (Z8) was a close second, missing first by just 73 medals, and claiming 330 of their own. Zone 8 managed to collect 122 gold medals, 105 silver and 103 bronze. Athletes from Chase and surrounding areas were just some of those who took their skill in track and field, golf and a wide range of other sports to the provincial level and helped claim hundreds of medals. Chase golfers laid it all out on the fairway and managed to grab a few medals in the process. Linda Shilling’s golf skills made Chase proud as she brought home a silver medal for her performance in the women’s 55-59 0-24.3 Index event; and Ingrid Whalley swung her way

to second place in the Women;s 75-79 24.440.4 event. Tony James Haas brought a collection of medals home after participation in the Track and Field events. He claimed second place in the Men’s 7074 10-Kilometre road walk with a time of 1:16:25:00. He managed a time of 37:10:77 in the men’s 70-74 5,000-metre power walk winning a bronze medal. Haas also placed fourth in the hammer throw event with a score of 21.48. Linda Haas earned a bronze medal for her performance in the Women’s 60-64 10km road walk at a time of 1:20:34. She also won gold in the women’s 6064 5,000m power walk. Chase’s Andy McLaren showed off his archery skill in the Men’s 70-74 target compound with sight and release event, claiming fourth with a score of 441. He also landed himself in fourth position after his participation

in the men’s 70-74 3D compound with sight and release event. Celista’s Norma Bischoff claimed bronze in table tennis after competing in the women’s 75-79 singles recreational event. Lorna Beecroft dem-

onstrated her equestrian abilities bringing bronze back to Chase in the men and women’s  55-66 dressage Level 1 Test 2 event, as well as silver in the men and women’s  55-60 dressage Level 1 Test 3 event.

Fox explained that organizers are having the game early to allow the players and their families enough time to get back home. “A lot of them have a long drive ahead of them,” Fox said, noting that the four days of camp can be tiring. While the team will not be picked by the end of the camp, Fox said management will have a more workable number to head into the exhibition games with. “It is a long process,” he said, explaining that it isn’t just about finding the best players, but the ones who fit in well with the team and trying to find the role that they will serve best. Fox hopes to have a clearer idea of the 2013-2014 Heat roster by Sept. 13. Until then, he will be working hard to carve out a winning team. Alcoholics Anonymous www.bcyukonaa.org

Cadets earn honours at summer camps

CLASS ACTION

Two air cadets and one army cadet have excelled this summer. Shuswap 222 Squadron air cadet Mikayla McKay received the award as top cadet in 17 Platoon at the final parade of Delta Training Group at Vernon Army Cadet Summer Training Centre. McKay attended the six-week army cadet Marksmanship Instructor Course at the Vernon camp, where cadets learned the principles of marksmanship, how to lead marksmanship activities, how to assist the range safety officer and how to coach younger cadets. In addition, the cadets toured Vernon and enjoyed recreational swimming. Cadet James Turgeon-O’Brien of 787   Royal Canadian Army Corps received the award as top cadet in 20 Platoon at the final parade of Delta Training Group. Turgeon-O’Brien at-

tended the three-week basic marksmanship instructor course, where cadets learned the principles of army cadet marksmanship, and the skills necessary to conduct a summer biathlon. Cadets were also taught the marksmanship skills to improve their results in competitions. During each summer, more than 1,200 army, sea and air cadets from western Canada spend up to six weeks in Vernon, expanding the training they receive at their home corps, developing new skills and former new friendships. Michael Koprowsky was one of 44 air cadets to spend his summer at the Regional Gliding School (Pacific). Koprowsky was 1 of 44 air cadets selected from across B.C. to take the Transport Canada Glider Pilot Licence. He flew the Schweizer 2-33A gliders, which

Koprowsky studied all aspects of aviation in order to pass an entrance exam, prior to sitting before a review board. His school marks, cadet service, leadership and physical

fitness were also evaluated as part of the selection process. The national cadet program is for young Canadians aged 12 to 18 who are interested in participating in a variety of fun, challenging and rewarding activities while learning about the sea, army and air activities of the Canadian Armed Forces. Cadets also learn valuable life and work skills such as teamwork, leadership and citizenship.

JOY JOHNSTON May 24, 1926 - August 19, 2013 It is with great sadness we announce the passing of our mother, Joy Johnston on August 19, 2013 at Bastion Place in Salmon Arm, B.C. after a sudden illness. Joy is survived by her five sons David, Lorne, Kent, Ewen (Sandy), Chris (Darcy); seven grandchildren (David) Lindsey, Mark, Troy, (Chris) Chelsey, Denton, (Ewen) Taylor, Angela; three great-grandchildren (David) Ethan, Marcus and (Chris) Kyran. She was predeceased by her husband Lloyd (2011), her parents Dan and Irene MacLeod, and her three younger siblings Scott and Donald MacLeod and Janie Perger. Joy was born in Summerside, Prince Edward Island and grew up in Stanley Bridge on the north central coast of P.E.I. Like many families of this time, there were struggles but Mom always valued her education and earned her teaching certificate in 1943. She began teaching in a one-room school house for grades 1 to 10 at the age of 17. She did this for several years until deciding to enroll in the registered nursing program at Charlottetown hospital. Graduating in 1950, she worked at the hospital there for three years. Always with a sense of adventure, at one point she planned to move to Bermuda with some nursing friends where they had job offers until she was asked to be a Ward Supervisor in Charlottetown. A couple of years later, Mom and a nursing friend did make the big move to the opposite side of the country to work in Pentiction, B.C. It was there that she met her husband Lloyd who was stationed there with the R.C.M.P. and became a patient of Mom’s. They were married in 1954. Five boys came in quick succession along with numerous R.C.M.P transfers including Stewart, Chilliwack, Courtenay, Salmon Arm and Revelstoke. Many lifelong friends were met in her travels. Mom was actively involved in her kid’s lives and spent much of her time driving us to our sports events and other activities. With their desire to return to Salmon Arm, Lloyd retired from the R.C.M.P. in 1971 and became the Personnel Manager at Federated Co-op. As her kids got older, Joy returned to some substitute teaching but mostly nursing which she loved. Eventually returning to full-time, it was said they had to “drag her out kicking and screaming” at her forced retirement in 1991. She was soon back at the hospital in 1996 when she helped organize the Hospital Greeters. She actively worked as a Greeter and helped coordinate this group until her illness. Mom remained involved with many activities including the “Trekkers” walking group, dragon boating, Women’s Hospital Auxiliary, exercise groups and bridge clubs. Her active and healthy lifestyle made many people believe that she was at least 10 years younger. While particular about her appearance, what she valued most was the social interaction associated with her activities. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the “Lloyd and Joy Johnston Family Endowment” at the Shuswap Community Foundation (www. shuswapfoundation.ca), the Shuswap Hospital Foundation (www.shuswaphospitalfoundation.org) or a charity of your choice. A Celebration of Life Service for Joy will be held at the First United Church, Salmon Arm, B.C. on Tuesday, Sept. 3, 2013 at 1:00 p.m. A reception will follow in the Church hall. Online condolences can be sent through Joy’s obituary at www.bowersfuneralservice.com

GARDENS Stoddart Garden

I moved up from Vancouver eight years ago to a blank slate in regards to landscaping. I’ve had to adjust to cold winters and dry summers. My garden is very eclectic when it comes to plants and garden art. I love the four seasons and have tried to design for that. It’s so much fun in the spring to see the bulbs popping up. I have a third acre but not all is planted as I enjoy being surrounded by nature. I have deer nibbling on the mountain ash and bear eating my apples. I have all kinds of birds to enjoy watching. The Shuswap is a wonderful place to retire.
