Juxtapose

n Photographer Vickie Maurer speaks to a series of photographs comparing photos of historic Salmon Arm, to her images of the city today Friday night during the official opening of SAGA’s latest exhibit, Downtown in Focus.

Change is on the horizon for Salmon Arm Secondary – and input is wanted. Sullivan campus principal Rob MacAulay and Jackson campus principal Reid Findlay explained at a meeting Nov. 5 which focused on how to structure the two-campus school, that while SAS may boast many positive traits, one thing isn’t working. Its scheduling system. At most schools, they said, students pick courses and they’re entered into a computer system which plugs courses into a timetable. At SAS, the system doesn’t accommodate the two campuses, so counsellors spend months entering students into courses with a schedule built by hand, limiting flexibility. “The scheduling system is broken,” they said. The principals explained that a process began in January and will conclude in December about how best to structure the school for student success. During the first 10 months, teachers and the school planning committee have discussed the issue, and now parent and student input is being sought. “We want the community to think about and talk about our options,” Findlay said. Three options were presented Tuesday night: 1) a ‘non-travelling’ model, where students from grades nine to 12 are at each campus and students are attached to a campus for the entire year; 2) a junior/ senior model, where almost all Grade 9 and 10 students are at Jackson and almost all Grade 11 and 12 students are at Sullivan; 3) a ‘double block’ model, where students in grades nine to 12 are at each campus and students have one class in the morning and one class in the afternoon. They explained the options have been looked at through different ‘lenses,’ to see how they would affect aspects of learning and the school culture. “We’re not here to try to sell you one model, all have strengths and weaknesses,” Findlay said.

ShuSwap Controversy follows SLIPP

Water project: Directors disagree on future direction. By Barb Brouwer

market news staff

n Carson Young protects his beagle-cross puppy from the cold and rain while watching a football game at the SASCU Sports Field at Little Mountain.

Assault victim ends up arrested Police are investigating after an intoxicated man was allegedly assaulted by unknown assailants in the parking lot of the A&W restaurant. The man was, however, later arrested for criminal charges of his own. At 11:30 p.m., on Tuesday, Nov. 5, police responded with ambulance service to a

man who had been assaulted in the parking lot of A&W in Salmon Arm. The adult male victim and his partner met police and advised that unknown males had assaulted him with a baseball bat. The victim had a large bump and laceration to his forehead. Both the victim and his partner were intoxi-

cated and would not cooperate with police questioning. The victim was taken to hospital and released a short time later. Upon his release, the victim was arrested as he had an outstanding warrant for his arrest out of Vernon. Police investigation into this incident continues.

SLIPP could be disappearing beneath the waves of controversy. The three-year Shuswap Lake Integrated Planning Process pilot project will end on March 31, 2014. The majority of the members of the SLIPP steering committee agreed to move ahead with water-quality monitoring and a lake safety program for the entire Shuswap Watershed. But Columbia Shuswap Regional District Area F North Shuswap director Larry Morgan is vehement in his opposition – as is the president of the North Shuswap Chamber of Commerce Dave Cunliffe. It is this opposition that frustrates Mike Simpson, senior regional manager for the Fraser Basin Council Thompson Region and SLIPP program manager, who says there is general consensus for a watershed-based program with a more limited focus. Mirroring the opinions of the North Shuswap Chamber, Morgan, in a telephone conversation last Friday, accused the steering committee of ignoring opposition. “This is being rammed down our throats. We have had numerous steering committee and board meetings where the opposition has been raised,” Morgan said. “It’s like nothing has been listened to and the agenda just keeps getting pushed forward.” Morgan is also incensed with how SLIPP proponents wish to proceed and maintains waterquality monitoring should be a regional district responsibility. “They want to spend $290,000 of gas tax money in 2014 from April 1 to Dec. 31 – $75,000 of it on water quality testing and the

rest for meetings, public education and so forth, leading to a decision for a five-year program,” he says. Morgan stepped down as steering committee chair in May because he didn’t want “to continue to be drawn into an increasingly divisive debate over the direction of SLIPP.” At that time, he agreed he was prepared to work with the steering committee but wanted the terms of reference to be more narrow and more affordable. Simpson, meanwhile, says there has been, and continues to be, a lot of misinformation about SLIPP and plans for the future. This is something SLIPP proponents have tried to address with news releases and directing people to the SLIPP website in order to provide “a more accurate reflection” of what SLIPP is doing and its mandate. “We like to give people the benefit of the doubt and hopefully they look at multiple sources...” Simpson says the steering committee is getting an assessment of what worked well under SLIPP and what members didn’t like in order to create a new water-quality program. “The committee is working in good faith to come to agreement on something they can support going forward… This doesn’t help having it out in the public when we haven’t even agreed on a document.” The steering committee is comprised of 14 people: local government – CSRD Area C South Shuswap; Area D Falkland/Silver Creek; Area E Rural Sicamous; two each from the Thompson-Nicola Regional District and Regional District of the North Okanagan; a public advisory committee rep; two representatives from the Shuswap Nation Tribal Council; a techni-

cal person from the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations; Salmon Arm Mayor Nancy Cooper and Sicamous Mayor Darrell Trouton. Area C director and steering committee chair Paul Demenok says, in June, committee members gave unanimous approval for a new program with a primary focus on water quality and support for education around water-based activities as a secondary objective. Terms of reference for the new program, tentatively named the Shuswap Watershed Water Quality Program, were considered at September and October meetings. “The new program will be very different from SLIPP,” Demenok says, noting the program would encompass the entire Shuswap watershed. “It will not include any foreshore restoration or recreation management objectives.” Demenok points out that, for the first time, there will be a water quality remediation program, something he calls “a natural transition from water-quality monitoring.” “Why would you do that (monitoring) if you weren’t planning to do something with the results?” he asks. “We envision 2014 as a developmental planning year where we continue the monitoring, evaluate remediation programs and obtain expert advice on that.” Area E director Rhona Martin supports the new program and says she believes others around the table are also supportive. “How can you not support water-quality monitoring and any type of safety and education awareness?” she asks, noting the valuable data that many volunteers have collected. “We need good science and that’s what this is giving us.”

Jamboree opens Sleigh of Hope Organizers are hoping area residents will support the 22nd annual Sleigh of Hope Music Jamboree with a spirit of giving. The kick-off event to the yearly drive for food and toys for the Salvation Army takes place Friday and Saturday, Nov. 15 and 16 at the Mall at Piccadilly. Inaugurated in 1991 by the local Lions Club, organization of the event that gathered about a half-ton of food last year was undertaken over the past six years by Pat Gerbrandt, even though she had moved to the Coast. Her assistant Lyn Sande has taken over with the help of Patricia Argent and the women are hoping to increase the amount of food and number of toys collected for the Salvation Army. The theme is still about giving, but in an atmosphere of fun, where the only admission people are asked to pay is a donation of food, gifts and/ or money in order to enjoy the jampacked, two-day musical event at the mall.

The jamboree kicks off with pipers Frank Reynolds and John Angus at 9:45 a.m. Friday, Nov. 15, and the entertainment continues until 8:20 p.m. On Saturday, the entertainment begins at 9:45 a.m. and continues to 4:45 p.m. Last year, the Salvation Army handed out more than 500 Christmas hampers and more will be needed this year.

Senate scandal could be Harpergate It is pretty hard to go through a day without hearing another juicy tidbit from the Senate debacle currently occupying Parliament Hill and newscasts. The most interesting recent twist is the claim by Senator Mike Duffy that the Prime Minister’s Office knew of the back room deals being made for the repayment of inappropriate housing allowance claims. To no one’s surprise Prime Minister Stephen Harper denies any knowledge of the deals. However, a poll conducted by Ekos Research and iPolitics.ca indicates Harper is skating on thin ice. Of the 1,377 Canadians polled, 40 per cent said they believed Senator Duffy’s version of the story which implicates Prime Minister Harper. Conversely, only 18 per cent of those polled believed the Prime Minister’s claim that his former chief of staff, Nigel Wright, acted alone in settling covering Senator Duffy’s repayment of living allowance funds. As the scandal develops, it appears more and more difficult to believe Prime Minister Harper didn’t know what was going on in the PMO. It is the Prime Minister’s Office after all, and any good manager should know what is going on in their office. Given Harper’s penchant for control, it is difficult to believe he had no idea Nigel Wright was going to write a cheque to Senator Duffy to cover the reimbursement of his inappropriate housing allowance claims and his legal bills. It appears Canadians smell Watergate on Parliament Hill, or more appropriately Harpergate. Time will tell. -Penticton Western News

OPINION

The delight of kicking leaves

When the remains of an overnight frost linger on the ground and the last remaining autumn leaves seem to be hanging on by little more than sheer determination; when there is a cool, crisp freshness in the air that almost takes your breath away as you inhale and each step you take feels almost uncertain beneath your feet, it is then that you realize your senses are completely and absolutely alive and you cannot help but appreciate just being outside in the great outdoors. This is especially true when you have not ventured outside in more than three weeks. I went for a walk this past Sunday and, like I say, it was the first time that I had walked anywhere further than across the room in three whole weeks of a recent illness. It felt good to walk out into the front yard, shuffling my feet through all the leaves. The sun felt good on my face and with each breath the fresh air felt invigorating. I could feel my life-blood flowing through

THE GREAT OUTDOORS James Murray my veins and it felt good to be alive. As I looked up into the branches of the trees though, I felt a pang of remorse that I had not been there to witness their ascent to earth. One day the leaves were starting to turn colour and the next, it seemed, they were all but gone. I found myself lining up a small pile of crisp, dried leaves. My foot moved instinctively upward through them. I have always enjoyed the changing of the seasons and I must say that enjoy autumn most of all. I like all the vibrant colours. I enjoy the simple pleasure of walking along a trail strewn with dried leaves. There is also the prospect of going fishing and the fact that

fishing is at its best in the fall of the year. While I’m not sure if I will be able to go fishing again this year, I can still think back to all the fishing trips made in past seasons. Sunday afternoon, I found myself smiling as I thought about the one and only, albeit interesting time I took my dog Arlo fishing in the boat. A pup at the time, he was interested in everything that came his way. On the water, he was fascinated by everything, both in and around the boat. From dragonflies that buzzed nearby, to the sight and sound of my fly line swishing through the air, to the prospect of sharing another of the sandwiches in the cooler. He was the best natured, most happy-go-lucky dog I’ve even known. Although we only went fishing once, we did share the same trail for the better part of two years, and while I do miss him, I am content to know that he now lives with good people and another dog, who is of like mind and personality.

Standing there in the yard, feeling slightly sad that this year’s autumn has, to some extent, passed me by, I could not help but think about how life passes you by if you are not prepared to live each day to the fullest and breathe in each breath as if were the elixir of eternal youth. Arlo is a perfect example of the fact that while we may inevitably grow older, we do not necessarily have to grow up. And while I may not know a heck of a lot, I do know this much – from here on in, I will enjoy kicking every pile of leaves that I come across. As a child I took great delight in kicking at a pile of leaves and I shall take an even greater delight in kicking the next pile I come across. It is important to appreciate the small things in life – even if is only being able to take a kick at a pile of leaves. So I think I’ll go for a walk.

View point Towers pose health risk At the city council meeting Monday, Oct. 27 the cell tower issue occupied a small but significant portion of the agenda. Ronn Boeur presented a two-page document outlining his concerns to council. The letter contains several major points of information on potential health issues related to transmission tower proximity. It began by stating that there was much independent research to back citizen concerns about the recent proliferation and placement of cell towers. Cited

was a long list of documented health issues, including the phenomenon of “cancer clusters.” This German study indicated that cancer incidence is three times higher when people (pregnant women, children, and seniors are particularly vulnerable) live, play, or work within 400 metres of a cell tower transmission mast. The letter also reiterated that Canada’s safety codes are sadly outdated: Safety Code 6 deals only with thermal (not the nonthermal) effects of

electromagnetic radiation (EMR). Standards set by European countries put the exposure limits (measured in microwatts per metresquared) at 100 to 10,000 times lower than what is currently permissible in Canada at 1 million. For cell connection, it is cited, we need only 0.001. The planned “smartgrid” puts us away and beyond the top of the chart. Finally, the letter referenced the legislation adopted by Langley, B.C., which states that when the (required) public polls indicate

that less than (a documented) 80 per cent of people living within 500 metres approve of the tower, the township won’t support the proposed tower when it goes to Industry Canada, the federal regulator with the final word...” So, before any final words are uttered, we need to demand that all levels of government and industry captains be transparent about the potential health dangers posed by all components of the wireless grid.

Abolishing senate not Letters filler Letters Welcome on Harper’s radar I believe it is time to admit, like hundreds of thousands of other Conservative supporters, that Prime Minister Stephen Harper and fellow Conservative MPs, sucked us in with

SLIPP project scheduled to end

Letter: Pellet plant has many positives At the public hearing on Nov. 12, council will consider amending the OCP to change the zoning on property on Aylmer Road to industrial. This property had always been zoned industrial and until approximately eight years ago had two sawmills and a sand/ gravel/concrete business there. Council is not approving the pellet plant but, if the re-zoning bylaw is passed, it will allow Pinnacle to apply to the Ministry of

Environment for an environmental assessment of the proposed project. When it reaches this point, there will be more public hearings and at this time, I’m sure many of the concerns being voiced will be addressed. Everyone is entitled to their opinion but I have to comment on a couple of statements made in a letter (Shuswap Market News Oct. 25) which stated (“… just because a few businesses have failed does not mean we are

on the road to destruction.” I take exception to this statement because to the businesses that failed, it is devastating. Many lost their life savings when their businesses closed. It would be akin to having your pensions – investments taken away, and then what would your economic outlook be? Also 25 jobs would be significant for Chase; Pinnacle would be one of the largest employers in Chase. So, citizens of Chase who are in favour,

please wake up. You can no longer sit back complacently expecting others to do your work for you. Come to the meeting at the community hall at 6 p.m. and let your council know you are in favour. You just need to state your name and address and say you are in favour. If you are unable to attend the meeting, drop a note off at the village office giving your name, address and stating you are in favour. Diana Endean

The Shuswap Lake Integrated Planning Process (SLIPP) threeyear pilot program will end as planned, on March 31, 2014. At the June SLIPP steering committee meeting there was unanimous support for a new program to succeed SLIPP having water quality as its primary focus, and consensus support for safety education on water-based activities as a secondary objective. At the September strategic planning session it was discussed that the new program would differ consider-

and more than 30,000 tests in its data base. It clearly demonstrates the power of collaboration. Despite these impressive accomplishments, SLIPP has not existed without controversy. Unfortunately, there has been a great deal of misinformation and misunderstanding about SLIPP. The foreshore restoration program has been described as ill-conceived and poorly executed. The recreation management plan has no apparent means of implementation. But perhaps the most important learning from the SLIPP Pilot Program is the need to engage and continually communicate with all orders of government, community groups and the public. The Shuswap watershed is a primary pillar of our economic wellbeing. It contributes to our quality of life, and

SLIPP received a Premier’s Award in 2009/10 as an innovative program using collaboration to achieve common goals. The water-quality monitoring program involved local governments, numerous volunteers, Ministry of Environment staff, scientific experts, Fisheries and Oceans Canada staff and Interior Health.

This new program, tentatively named the Shuswap Watershed Water Quality Program (SWWQP), will not be initiated until 2015, assuming approval and funding. The proposed program would include the entire Shuswap watershed. In the interim, 2014 is proposed as a developmental year with the following activities: • continued but reduced levels of waterquality monitoring • reassessment of the water-quality monitoring plan • development of a water-quality remediation program • engagement of all those with a vested interest in the watershed

South ShuSwap Show a runway success Notch Hill: Thrifty fashions draw enthusiastic applause. The Notch Hill fashion show was a hot success, as Shuswap residents poured in to take in the entertainment. Many vintage and stylish thrift store fashions were modelled at the Diva On A Dollar fashion show event that took place at the Notch Hill Hall on Sunday, Oct. 20. Guests were served sparkling fruit juice in flute glasses and delicate cheesecake bites and petit fours. A red carpet added a colourful walkway for the models.  In keeping with the theme with the fall

fashion show, many of those who attended dressed in their own favourite thrift store outfits The fashion show co-ordinators send out a special thanks to the many sponsors, who made the event possible. Grateful thanks also go to Darlene from Chum n’ Luba’s in Chase, for supplying the vintage clothing, as well as for her displays and for all her help backstage.  Great enjoyment was had by all who attended and participated in this ‘special’ Fall Fashion Show.

The term fibromyalgia indicates pain of the muscles and fibrous connective tissues throughout the body. Predisposed areas are neck and shoulders, lower back, chest and thighs. Soreness begins slowly, with muscle stiffness, and aching, which worsens with overuse of the muscles. Endurance and stamina are compromised, and sufferers often feel constantly worn out and unable to concentrate. Accompanying factors include depression and anxiety, as well as irritable bowels. Another important aspect of fibromyalgia is inadequate or poor sleep. There is a link between fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome, in which the least physical and mental effort

When autumn smoke gets in your eyes

ShuSWap paSSion Jim Cooperman There was little time to revel in the sudden appearance of sunshine in October after over a week of low dense fog, because our skies quickly filled with smoke from countless logging slash piles. While forest practices have improved since the bad old days of the 1980s, forest companies still routinely slashburn, and the amount of material going up in smoke has increased despite the growing concerns regarding, waste, air quality and increasing levels of CO2 that fuel climate change. The primary rationale behind the yearly practice of slashburning is to reduce wildfire hazards, as history shows that many massive forest fires began in the mass of logging debris of branches and tops left in logged over areas. Most slash is now burned in piles near the landings where the logs are

piled, as the practice of broadcast burning over the entire logging block is rarely used, due in part to the many times these fires escaped into standing timber, but more so due to the currently used practice of mechanized “whole tree” logging where the entire tree is brought to the landing. Fortunately, slashburning is far more regulated now than in the past as burning is only allowed when the venting conditions are such that the smoke rises and dissipates quickly. After many years of public complaints and public health concerns the provincial government finally recognized how excess smoke in the air can cause illness and exacerbate existing health problems such as asthma, and brought in regulations to better control slashburning. Yet, while the government has toughened the rules for burning, it has loosened the rules regarding logging waste and it has far fewer staff monitoring logging operations. While options do exist to minimize or utilize logging waste, companies are fixated on their balance sheet and thus can only afford to burn. Elsewhere, waste wood is used to make

pellets or is used for bio-fuel in highly efficient co-generation power facilities. One local company that no longer exists, Riverside Forest Products, experimented with mobile chippers and spread the material back out on the blocks where it can break down quickly and improve soil fertility.   Typically now, logging is done by fellerbunchers and grapple skidders that pull entire trees to the landing where a processer limbs, tops and bucks each tree, leaving the waste in massive piles. After a year or more of air-drying, a forestry crew lights up the piles using a mixture of diesel and gasoline with backpack pumps,  the same backpack pumps that are used to hold water during fire season. Studies show that air pollution is a major

cause of health problems. Wood smoke contains fine particulates that enter eyes and respiratory systems as well as toxic air pollutants, including PAHs, benzene, formaldehyde, acrolein and methane. While a rural lifestyle is usually considered healthier thanks to cleaner air and water, every fall the use of our skies for disposing of logging industry wastes can mean our health is actually being compromised. As well, due to the pine beetle and massive slash pile burning, B.C.’s forests have turned from a carbon sink to a major contributor of carbon to the atmosphere.  According to provincial data, annual net CO2 emissions from forestlands are 82 million tonnes, which is far higher than the 62

million tonnes from industry and transportation. Perhaps it is time to consider a policy proposed in a 2003 Simon Fraser University research project that would reduce slash burning by attaching a fee for all fibre burned that would thus encourage environmentally sustainable alternatives.

Rotary Update Shuswap Rotary Club

Barani Primary School Laptop Program is up and running!

The Barani Primary School Laptop Program is up and running! Laptops are working in the new library / computer lab with functioning satellite Internet. The teachers, kids and community are all very excited and anxious to learn. The classroom full of laptops will start being used this morning. The school plans to hire a teacher that is computer savvy to teach in the lab. Barani

is a rural area where most kids (although look well dressed) live in mud huts, dads are often absent, and many do not have enough to eat. The way to solve the poverty woes of these people is education. Mike and I flew to Nairobi this morning and will fly to Portugal Wednesday for the vacation portion of the trip! Mombasa and Barani were very hot and

humid and we bussed with the locals to get to Barani each day. Such an interesting culture, 46 tribes, cows and goats roam freely, the goats cleaning up most of the garbage everywhere except the plastic bags. Homes are made from sticks and mud and cow dung, or cement and rocks for the more well off. Most families cook over open fire in the house or yard, and most

have no electricity or running water. We stayed with Rotarian Margaret Wanganga in Mombasa and had more of the western luxuries i.e. plumbing and electricity. Many middle-income families have domestic help to hand wash laundry and wash dishes, cook, etc. sharing their house work and their wealth. Jody & Mike Boudreau Shuswap Rotary Club

Shuswap Rotary: fighting to end polio by Shawn Bird October 24th was World Polio Day. You may have noticed Rotarians along the side of the road on your way to work, waving their red End Polio Now signs. It’s been thirty years since Rotary first decided to join the global polio eradication effort. It’s mostly only senior citizens who remember when polio closed swimming pools in North America. After the Salk vaccine was developed in 1950s and the Sabin vaccine arrived in the 1960s, North American children were freed from braces and iron lungs. But back in the 1980s a thousand people each day were still being infected with polio in the developing world. Rotary joined the World Health Organization

www.saobserver.net A17

and the Gates Foundation to immunize children around the world. Teams of Rotarians spread out. Millions of children were immunized. According to polioeradication. org, in 2012 there were only 223 cases of polio world-wide. Only four countries had outbreaks: the polio endemic countries of Nigeria, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and non-endemic Chad. But war makes immunization difficult, and if we’re not vigilant, the virus can become reestablished. Unfortunately, to date, there have already been 301 cases of polio in 2013 and while Chad is polio free this year, five other non-edemic African nations have had outbreaks, including 174 cases in Somalia alone. We’re

THIS CLOSE to ending polio, but we can’t let up the fight. When Shuswap Rotary has a guest speaker, they receive a mug and twenty children are immunized against polio in their honour. Over the last few years, thousands of children in the developing world have been immunized as a result of this club initiative. When you support fundraising efforts of Shuswap Rotary, whether it’s our annual auction, Garden party, or other activities, you make a difference in the Shuswap, and around the world. Shuswap Rotary Club meets at the Prestige Hotel on Tuesday evenings. If you would like to join us in making the world a better place, contact Fred 250-832-7785

Focused on safe shipping

From the hill colin mayes The British Columbia Conservative caucus twice a year hosts what we refer to as ‘Stakeholder Meetings’ to speak with British Columbians on issues and projects that are impacting our province. We hosted our fall 2013 meeting in Westside in September and at those meetings heard a dozen presentations. One of the presenters was a representative from the Chamber of Shipping of British Columbia, Capt. Steven Brown. Capt. Brown’s comments were focused on the chamber’s communications initiative to educate Canadians on the safety measures and success of shipping safety worldwide. Here are a few facts that I think you need to be aware of: First, marine pilotage in British Columbia is comprised of around 100 pilots and has an accident-free record of 99.98 per cent out of over 12,000 assignments per year. Second, in the 1970s around 500 oil spills were reported, and as a result, new regulations and double-hulled oil tanker specifications have eliminated oil spills to zero in 2012. Third, in 2012 the

largest tanker port in the world was Singapore, which handled 22,230 tanker calls; Houston, Texas 4,650; Los Angeles/Long Beach 1,311 and Vancouver, B.C. 166. Fourth, the Douglas Channel at its narrowest point is around 1500 metres wide, a large oil tanker is only 60 metres wide plus the draft clearance in the strait is 10 times safety standard levels. Finally in B.C. we are fortunate in having two world-class tug operations covering major traffic areas of our coastline, and the shipping lanes off the B.C. coast are determined by the response time that it would take a tug to reach a ship that had lost engine

power relative to the time the ship might be grounded. I should note that 80 per cent of the crude oil in the world is transported by oil tankers. New GPS technology, better ship design, and better safety procedures have eliminated much of the risk related to marine transport. You can find more info at www.safeshippingbc.ca. I give you this information so you will know that whatever the Enbridge Northern Gateway or the Kinder Morgan TransMountain expansion project environmental review decisions might be, these facts will give you some comfort if the decision is to proceed.

The BC College of Family Physicians has introduced a new award to recognize excellence among family doctors in the province - “My Family Doctor.” Announced during Family Doctor Week, the “My Family Doctor” award will celebrate the doctor-patient relationship, which is known to help improve patient satisfaction and health outcomes. Family doctors care for all parts of the body and mind, all diseases, all ages and genders, including preventative care, primary mental health care, and treatment of most illnesses and injuries. “A good doctor is a partner to their patients, working with them throughout their life to help achieve their health goals. It’s a relationship based on trust and good communication,” says Dr. Patricia Mirwaldt, BCCFP President-Elect. If you value your relationship with your family doctor and the impact they’ve made in your life, share your story at www.bcfamilyphysicians. com.

Sharp Shooters target Westside Ringette: big win on Sunday. The Shuswap Sharp Shooters Novice Ringette team continued their winning ways on Sunday, defeating Westside by a score of 14-3. Cadence PetitclercCrosby opened the scoring for the Sharp Shooters, with Katie

Findlay picking up the helper. Westside got on the board 10 seconds later with one of their own, but Findlay continued her strong game with a pair to push the home team ahead 3-1. Westside would get back within one with seven minutes left in the first, but the potent Shuswap offence then took over the game, scoring five more in the first.

Petitclerc-Crosby potted two more to complete the hat trick, Natasha Kociuba picked up a single, and Shaylah Ferguson and Sadi Weed each tallied for the home team to round out the scoring in the opening frame. The second period finished out in like fashion, the home team putting another 6-spot on the board. McKenzie Mount (2), Ryan Decker, Weed, and

Kociuba with 2 more to cap off the hat trick, finished off the scoring for the home team. Assists went to Emily French, Decker (2), Kociuba (2), Weed, Petitclerc-Crosby and Brianna Howard. Brooklyn Sewell shone in net for the Sharp Shooters. Shuswap heads down the Coquihalla Highway for a tournament in Burnaby this weekend.

Peewee ’Tips fall to Kelowna The A&W Peewee Tier 3 Silvertips travelled to West Kelowna for a game against the Westside Warriors on Saturday, the home team defeating Salmon Arm by an 8-4 final. The ’Tips spotted the Warriors a triple before hitting the board for the first time in the second period. Hard on the fore-check on the powerplay, Dominic Barbosa spotted the Westside netminder cheating off the post by a hair. That was all

the opening he needed, deflecting the puck off the back of the goalie’s leg and into the back of the net. The Warriors scored again with 25 seconds left in the frame to take a 4-1 lead into the second intermission, but the ’Tips came back with more fire in the third. Just 14 seconds into the period, Ty Bailey slammed a puck at the Warriors tender, Ethan Lans tucking in the rebound to get the good guys back within a pair. Connor

Kociuba drove hard down the wall into the zone and got a hard shot off with Barbosa tucking in the rebound for Salmon Arm’s second of the period, and Taylor Howard turned on the jets and made a power move to the front of the net, flipping a backhand into the twine for the ’Tips final marker of the game. The Silvertips welcome Kamloops to the Shaw Centre this Saturday, and South Okanagan on Sunday.

Village of Chase NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING MARKET NEWS filE phoTo

n Residents pack the community hall for the first public hearing held to gather public input on the proposed rezoning on Aylmer Road to accommodate a pellet plant.

Second hearing finalized

Pellet plant: Public invited to attend meeting Nov. 12. By Cavelle Layes

MARKET NEWS STAff

The date for the second public hearing regarding the rezoning of land for the proposed pellet plant has been set. The proposed business venture which has divided Chase residents is back up for discussion on Nov. 12 at 6 p.m. at the Chase Community Hall. The additional public hearing is an extension of the first, allowing more residents to come forward with their concerns or express their support for the proposed pellet

plant on Alymer Road. The village council reminds the community it is still considering the points made at the last public hearing, and those who have already spoken do not need to do so again unless their stance has changed or additional information has been discovered. Community members attending the meeting who plan on speaking are reminded there is a time limit per speaker.  The past hearing and information sessions have heard concerns regarding noise, air and water pollution, increased traffic both

by road and rail, and potential fire risks. Those supporting the proposed Pinnacle Pellet Plant have highlighted the potential jobs that would be brought to the area, allowing residents to stay in Chase to work. Other positive views that were shared noted the potential for new businesses to be attracted to the area, as well as an increase to the schools student population and local hockey teams who last year didn’t have enough players. Still, some residents remain neutral on the topic, acknowledging

the fact that Chase has been a mill town for a hundred years, and they do not believe much would change either way. While there are still many steps to go before the mill could be proposed, including an environmental assessment, council must first approve the rezoning of the parcel of land on Alymer Road to allow a business of this nature to operate on the site. Those wishing for a seat at the upcoming public hearing are suggested to arrive early, as past events have left standing room only.

Heading out on Halloween Haldane students scared up some Halloween entertainment last Thursday as part of their days festivities.  Kindergarden and grade one students left the school at about 10:40 a.m. Thursday morning dressed as fairy princesses, super heros, ghosts, vampires and everything in between. They began their costume parade around Chase, stopping cars in their tracks as their drivers checked out the wonderful sight. Midway through their costume parade, the students stopped in at Parkside Estates to provide the residents with some top-notch entertainment. Each class sang a Halloween song which they had been practicing hard to learn throughout the week. Once each performance was completed, the group of costumed students collected a Halloween treat and continued on their parade. The Haldane students also took part in a Halloween dance featuring music and activities and helped the school collect some non-perishable food for the local food hamper.

Business ideas welcome Nov. 19 By Cavelle Layes

MArKet neWS StAff

The future of Chase is being considered by a group of business owners with some big ideas. Once a month, a group of Chase business owners have been gathering together to take part in a brainstorming session. It’s a time when they decide the direction that they want to see their village head, what it is missing and what could be enhanced. While the group features a variety of people, they all have one thing in common – they want to see Chase grow. Their ideas aim to provide more for the residents already living in Chase, as well as attract more. The group’s initial ideas covered multiple

pages and included everything from an annual soap box derby, water ski tours, a full week of Chase Country Christmas and a village market.  One common theme they discovered was that the area needs more family oriented activities. The ideas are meant to attract new residents and possibly businesses to the area. But they are also meant to motivate those already living in Chase to stay. The new initiative also aims to attract more tourists to the area and keep them here for longer visits. The group believes that Chase already has a lot to offer, and many agree that they would like to keep the closeknit, small town feel. However, the group has

taken on the responsibility of breathing new life into the area, organizing community events for all ages and achieving some enhancements. The group has discussed such things as getting a more community-minded policing service, infrastructure development projects designed to generate revenue for local government coffers beyond tax-based revenue and organizing more central marketing of events and activities taking place in Chase. The group of brainstormers would also like to see more camping facilities and the creation of community ambassadors to promote the local area along with its business and services. It supports new business development and promote improved ser-

vices and upgraded appearance to those businesses already in the area. The brainstorming sessions are an ongoing event, with a different focus each month. Those who think they have some ideas to share, or who would simply like to hear more of what is happening are invited to attend the next meeting scheduled for Nov. 19 at 7 p.m. in the Art Holding Memorial Arena’s mezzanine area. The topic being discussed is how Chase can benefit from the major opportunity offered by the 2014 Salmon Run. The event, which is expected to be another record breaking year for both salmon and tourists, could provide some very exciting economic benefits.

Cutting through small business red tape

From the legislature Greg kyllo Small businesses are the backbone of the B.C. economy. They comprise 98 per cent of all businesses in the province, and employ more than one million British Columbians. That accounts for 56 per cent of private-sec-

tor employment in the province. Small business owners are hard-working, passionate people who dedicate long hours and an incredible amount of energy toward building success. Here in B.C., we’re doing some great things to help small businesses thrive, especially when it comes to cutting unnecessary red tape. It’s one of the key barriers small businesses face. That’s why I’m always proud to tell people that B.C. is number one in the country for regulatory reform. In fact, the Canadian Fed-

eration of Independent Business recently gave B.C. an “A” for regulatory reform – the only province in Canada to receive such a distinction. The mobile business licence program is just one example. It allows mobile businesses to operate in several municipalities with only one licence, so business owners can spend less time doing paperwork and more time on making their businesses a success. The program reduces red tape by allowing mobile businesses to operate in more than one munici-

pality by purchasing only one licence, instead of obtaining nonresident permits in each municipality in which they operate. Here in the Shuswap, the communities of Sicamous, Salmon Arm, Spallumcheen, Enderby and Armstrong participate in the mobile business license program and are seeing its many benefits. October is Small Business Month in B.C., and I want to hear your ideas on how to cut red tape. I’m especially interested in this area, given my own business background

Nominations open for B.C. achievement awards Every community has one or more – people who make life better for their communities by applying their hard work, skills and talents to such areas as arts and culture, sports and recreation,

multiculturalism, environment, healthcare, education, civic duty, business innovation, community volunteerism, philanthropy and youth or seniors’ leadership. It’s time again to

EELI HENRIK SIMONSON 1918 - 2013 Eeli Henrik Simonson passed away quietly at his home in Dinsmore, Saskatchewan on October 27, 2013 with his three children by his side. He was 94 years old. Eeli was born in Dunblane, Saskatchewan on November 7, 1918 to Ida and Nestor Simonson. He was orphaned by the age of nine and was living independently at 16. He spent his early 20’s overseas with the Canadian War effort, and after the war went to Vancouver, B.C. While logging on Pender Island he met Edith G. Teece and they married in 1948. He attended watchmaking school in Vancouver and soon opened the first of his jewelry stores there. Their children, Antero, Aaro and Eila were born in Vancouver. The family moved to Sunnybrae in 1960 and Eeli opened his jewelry store on Hudson Street in Salmon Arm. His wife Edith passed away in 1976. A few years later Eeli re-met an old school friend, Wylma Hanson. They spent a number of years together in Sunnybrae, before moving to Dinsmore, Saskatchewan where, after a few years of retiremenet, he opened a third jewelry store. He retired again and took up fishing. Eeli is survived by his companion Wylma Hanson, his three children, Antero, Aaro (Peg), Eila (Ron), five grandsons, Niko, Erik (Michelle), Leon, Chance, Tahvo, great grandson Evan and brand new great granddaughter Avery! Our father had many interests and has left us with our memories, a legacy of lessons and his legendary sense of humour. We are grateful. In keeping with Eeli’s wishes there will be no service. Funeral arrangements were entrusted to Clements Rosetown Funeral Home.

MACKAY, GLEN DAVID It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of long time Salmon Arm resident Glen MacKay on Sunday, October 27, 2013 at the Mount Ida Mews. Born on September 18, 1926 in Enderby, BC he was one of four children of Murdoch and Ruby MacKay. The family later moved to Sicamous and eventually Dad moved to Salmon Arm to complete his high school education. As a youth he enjoyed and excelled in hockey and lacrosse. Though he had the opportunity to go on to post secondary education, he went directly into a working career in the forest industry, eventually spending many of his years as a logging contractor. In 1959 he married Molly Miller and they settled in the Salmon Arm area, raising their three children, David, Susan, and Barry, and providing the family with a secure and happy home. Dad and Mom passed on an enduring love and support for us in the following years. With Dad’s keen sense of humour, thoughtfulness, courtesy and common sense values, he was a great role model and wonderful man to be around. After being diagnosed with kidney disease in 2003 he dealt with his condition with determination and diligence until the end of his life. Dad was predeceased by Mom (2012) and son David (1977). He is survived by his children Susan (Ron) and Barry (Cathy), grandchildren Adam and Kaitlyn, sister Berniece (Clayton Ruddick) of Chilliwack, BC, as well as many extended family and friends. In honouring his specific wishes, a private spring time graveside service will be held. In lieu of flowers, those wishing to honour Dad’s memory may make a donation to the Kidney Foundation of Canada or a charity of their choice. For their care and support we would like to thank Bowers Funeral Home, Dr. Weicker, and the staffs of the Vernon Dialysis Unit, the Mount Ida Mews, and the Shuswap Lodge.

CARMER, CLARA MARIEA Mom “Omi” was born the 13th child to Anna and Christof Trager on Nov. 6, 1932 in Tulpingen, Germany. She passed away at the age of 80 on October 23, 2013 in Malakwa, BC. She was predeceased by two children Vera and Chris. She came to Canada when she was 18 and was a single mother for 5 years, taking on jobs as a nanny and housekeeper until she met our father Ernie. She married Dad on Dec 15, 1956 and they settled, worked and raised their 6 children in Malakwa. They lived in the log home that Grandpa and Dad built 57 years ago. In retirement, Mom and Dad enjoyed gardening and canning together, going camping and travelling to see family and friends. Mom welcomed everyone into her home. Recently they moved onto their youngest daughter’s property as their house needed to be torn down to make room for the new highway project. Mom enjoyed her new surroundings and adjusted quite nicely, enjoying her walks, her new flower beds, and watching her busy family. She loved all of her grandchildren dearly and was very much a family person. She passed away at home peacefully as was her wish. There will be no service at her request. She is survived by loving husband of 56 years, Ernie and 4 daughters, Noreen (Brian) of Jamestown, North Carolina, Doreen (Karl) of Malakwa, BC, Val (Dan) of Regina, Saskatchewan, and Sally (Ted) of Malakwa, BC as well as 7 grandchildren, Chris, Justin, Krystal, Doug, Nancy, Aaron and Shauna.

Children’s toys versus imagination

Profile of the week

mix of dress-up clothes, big cardboard boxes, large pieces of fabric – nothing complicated and not too much of any one thing, keep it simple and let the children decide how they will use the props. When left to their own devices, children will make decisions themselves – the less structured the play is, the more children will develop self-regulation, and learn how to make choices, skills they will need as they grow up.

He became certified in the WETT program – which is a Canadian recognized association, allowing him to be able to inspect, install and maintain wood burning stoves and fireplaces. His services include chimney sweeping, estimates and advice on purchasing and installation of wood burning stoves, such as size needed for the square footage, and the best stove to meet your needs. Robert’s motto “Burning Clean = More Green” not only refers to the money saved when keeping your stove or fireplace maintained, it also refers to the environment, as the new stoves burn cleaner and more efficiently. Repeat customers are spreading the word of his fair pricing and thorough job. For all your wood heat needs, call Robert today for an estimate.

No wonder so many people with CF stop breathing in their early 30s.
