Blaze destroys Anglemont duplex

Fires: Regional fire departments put to the test in North Shuswap, Ranchero. By Barb Brouwer

MARKET NEWS STAff

Columbia Shuswap Regional District volunteer firefighters were kept busy over the weekend. At 1:47 p.m. Friday, Dec. 6, a construction worker in Magna Bay reported seeing smoke pouring from the crawl space of a side-by-side duplex in the Roost subdivision. Anglemont firefighters were on scene with apparatus within 13 minutes to find the structure fully engulfed. “There was intense fire activity coming up the centre of the home,” says CSRD Fire Services co-ordinator Kenn Mount, noting the flames were coming out of the roof and in danger of jumping to a neighbouring structure. “It was cold and windy and the crew did a pretty impressive job of saving the adjacent home.” Home to two families, one holidaying in Hawaii, the duplex that was built in the ’70s was destroyed. The 13 members of the Anglemont Fire Department extinguished the fire and remained on scene until 7:15 p.m., when neighbouring fire departments in Celista and Scotch Creek took over monitoring duties so the weary firefighters could go to their department Christmas party. Mount says nobody was home in either residence at the time of the fire and all his investigation has revealed so far is that the blaze originated in the crawl space and may have something to do with frozen pipes. While Mount was on his way to investigate the fire Saturday, a structure fire was called in at 10:15 a.m. Lights and sirens blazing, Mount

The home was totally destroyed. sped to the scene – as did others. “The Scotch Creek fire chief was already investigating in Anglemont so we had eight apparatus and more than 20 members at the scene within eight minutes,” says Mount, noting crews easily dealt with the chimney fire. “Damage was contained to the chimney, which needs professional work, but there was no smoke or water damage.” Crews remained on scene until 11:15, leaving a “very emotional woman, who seemed shocked there were so many of us there so quickly.” From the chimney fire, Mount

made his way to the duplex fire, where he spent the day carrying out his investigation. He was just getting back to Salmon Arm at 8 p.m., when a structure fire was reported on Gannor Road in Ranchero. “Smoke was coming out of the wall into the living room and Ranchero crews located the heat source in the wall using thermal imaging cameras,” says Mount of his second chimney fire of the day. “It looked to be due to some improper insulation on an older chimney built in the ’70s.” Damage was limited to the space

Salmon Arm man arrested for murder By Staff writer

Kamloops this weeK

Mounties have arrested a former Salmon Arm resident in connection with a March 2011 murder that took place in the basketball court of Stuart Wood Elementary School in downtown Kamloops. Travis Johnny, 24, has been charged with murder in the death of Archie LePretre on March 22, 2011. LePretre and his cousin were attacked by three men about 4:30 p.m. that day while playing basketball outside the school. The 23-year-old Vancouver resident was visiting family in Kamloops when he was killed.

At the time of the murder, Kamloops RCMP said a gang dispute was at the centre of the attack, which involved three men wearing bandanas over their faces attacking with knives and a baseball bat. Kamloops RCMP Staff Sgt. Cheryl Bush said it appears the pair were “targeted” by rival gang members because of their ties to a Lower Mainland gang. Police would not discuss details of Johhny’s arrest, or the investigation which led to it, except to say it had been “extensive.” “These cases are never closed,” said Bush. “It takes a lot of determination to just keep plugging away

at them until we get to where we are today.” Johnny’s arrest was one of three made in connection with LePretre’s murder by the Kamloops Serious Crime Unit on Friday, Dec. 6. Bush said two other Kamloops men arrested at the time have since been let go, though their role in the death is still being investigated. Johnny is set to appear in court Thursday, Dec. 12. It’s yet to be determined whether he’ll face charges of first- or second-degree murder. LePretre’s family has denied he was involved in the gang lifestyle. He graduated from business school in June 2010.

Senior bilked in telephone scam A Salmon Arm senior was bilked out of $8,000 after wiring money in response to a phone scam. On Dec. 9, Salmon Arm RCMP received a report of the scam. A resident was advised by telephone that her grandson had been involved in a vehicle accident and $4,000 needed to be wired to

Peru. A second call was received advising that another $4,000 should be wired so that her son would not receive a criminal record. The senior sent the money. However, the story turned out to be false. Police wish to remind the public that money sent by wire transfer can be picked up anywhere. As soon as the

money is retrieved, the cash is gone. Criminals circumvent the system by falsifying identification or even employ a criminal wire-transfer agent. Any time you are asked to wire money, be skeptical. When in doubt, contact the RCMP detachment before sending money to unknown sources.

ShuSwap Pair of collisions force highway closure

Drivers re-routed: No one seriously hurt in accidents east of Canoe and at the Eagle River Bridge. By Lachlan Labere

MARKET NEWS STAff

Slippery roads and semis were common factors in two separate incidents that resulted in highway closures in the Shuswap Tuesday. One of the closures stemmed from an incident that occurred on the night of Monday, Dec. 9 in Malakwa. At approximately 9:41 p.m., Sicamous RCMP responded to a report of a multi-vehicle accident on the Eagle River Bridge, 15 kilometres east of Sicamous on the TransCanada Highway. Sgt. Dave Dubnyk reported that responding officers learned a Ford Bronco skidded out of control, rolled and came to rest in the middle of the highway. The driver was able to exit the vehicle unharmed. However, three tractor-trailer units then drove into the accident scene and, subsequently, became part of it. One of the semis wound up blocking traffic, while another became engulfed in flames. Firefighters from the Malakwa Volunteer Fire Department, with aid from Sicamous, were able to prevent the blaze from reaching the other vehicles. Columbia Shuswap Regional District fire services co-ordinator Kenn Mount said the fire was hot enough to damage the bridge. The bridge was

closed following the incident and not fully reopened until 3 p.m. Tuesday. Dubnyk said representatives from the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure were at the scene Tuesday morning to assess the bridge’s structural integrity. MOTI spokesperson Kathy Cloutier stated Wednesday in an email that the ministry’s engineers found the bridge to be in “structurally safe condition, and is safe for public travel.” Police continue to investigate the cause of this incident. While ministry crews were working Tuesday to clear the bridge, a second incident involving two tractor-trailer units occurred on the highway west of Sicamous. Salmon Arm Staff Sgt. Kevin Keane reported that on Dec. 10 at 11:15 a.m., officers responded to a twovehicle collision on the Trans-Canada, roughly four kilometres east of the Canoe mill. Keane says a westbound truck loaded with cattle skidded out of control. The truck wound up in the eastbound lane ditch. The trailer remained upright, adjacent to the ditch, and the cattle were reported to be unharmed. Keane says the driver of a second westbound tractor-trailer unit was unable to stop when it came upon the scene and collided with the

already downed semi. The second semi’s trailer separated and fell on its side, effectively blocking the width of the highway. The tractor portion wound up on its side next to the first tractor. One of the drivers was taken to hospital with minor injuries. The highway wasn’t fully reopened until 9:07 p.m. A witness at the scene, the driver of an eastbound semi, attributed the collisions to speed and icy conditions. Keane, however, was unavailable to confirm this prior to presstime. Over the summer, the ministry revealed plans to replace the Eagle River Bridge as part of

the B.C. government’s commitment to fourlane the Trans-Canada. It was noted during an open house hosted by ministry staff that 30 collisions occurred on the bridge between 2002 and 2011. Two of those involved fatalities, 12 resulted in injuries and 16 in property damage only. Cloutier says ministry staff have been consulting with the community on the bridge’s replacement, and design work is nearly complete. “This project is a priority for the province and the tender schedule has not been confirmed,” says Cloutier. The project will include the four-laning of approximately 2.7 kilometres of highway.

Mixed reviews on project

Blind Bay Resort: Project heads back to CSRD table. By Barb Brouwer

MARKET NEWS STAff

Dan Baskill is one step closer to realizing his plans to develop the Blind Bay Resort. A public hearing held Thursday, Dec. 5 on Baskill’s proposal to have two waterfront properties that are currently zoned single-family dwelling changed to a tourist commercial designation was respectful and allowed both sides to voice their opinions, said staff and politicians who attended the meeting. Some 140 people attended the hearing, where Baskill was seeking public approval for an official community plan amendment that would allow him to develop his beachfront property from single-family dwelling to a tourist commercial designation that would permit 19 RV sites. “There were strong arguments both for and against the development,” said Columbia Shuswap Regional District Area C South Shuswap director Paul

Drivers reconsider photo radar use While looking at speed limits on rural highways, the B.C. Liberal government may also have to reconsider photo radar. One promise former B.C. Premier Gordon Campbell can be credited for keeping from his 2001 election campaign is scrapping the photo radar program. “Speed cameras have no effect on safety. They are nothing more than a cash cow,” Campbell said after leading the B.C. Liberals to a majority win. Soon after, the 30 minivans used in the program were decommissioned. RCMP were sad to see the vans go. And while ICBC, which funded the cameras, couldn’t say whether they improved safety, they did credit the cameras for a $50 million drop in insurance claims between 1996 and 1999. The province is currently reviewing speed limits for long stretches of rural highways, including the Coquihalla. Interestingly, results from a poll conducted by Insights West for Black Press suggests the B.C. government may want to increase enforcement, not speed. And that includes bringing back those photo radar vans. According to the poll, 55 per cent of respondents said highway speeds should stay the same, while 39 per cent support bringing back photo radar to help curb speeding. Certainly, it can be argued that problematic drivers are not a majority, and therefore the rest of society shouldn’t be monitored/penalized because of them. This position, however, is easily reconsidered when one of those problematic drivers is responsible for harming you, a friend or a loved one. If a proactive, indiscriminate roadside enforcement initiative like B.C.’s former photo radar program can prevent, or at least deter, such incidents, that’s certainly something worth the government’s consideration.

Warm read for a cold winter’s night Any time a new fly-fishing book comes across my desk for review, it is a treat. When it lands on my desk at the beginning of December, well, that’s more of what I would call an early Christmas gift. And when it’s a new book by fly-fishing author Brian Smith, it’s all the more special. Smith has become one of my favourite B.C. outdoor writers, for the plain and simple reason that his books are about fishing B.C. waters. His newest book, Seasons of a Fly Fisher – Fly Fishing Canada’s Western Waters, takes the reader on a year-long fishing trip of sorts. The journey goes from the Pacific Northwest, where they experience the thrill of fishing for salmon and cutthroat trout; to the lakes, rivers and streams of the Central Interior, where they tie into bright, shiny silver rainbow trout; on to the Bulkley Valley for powerful steelhead and, finally, to the East Kootenay and southern Alberta for even more trout fishing. Throughout the seasons, Smith teaches, entices and

The GreaT OuTDOOrs James Murray takes the reader along on his travels throughout the province. “When the first fair winds of March caress the B.C. Interior, our natural world awakens from winter’s grasp. Animals stir from their dens, the earliest migratory birds begin to appear, insects hatch from shallow ponds to nourish arriving bird life, lakes and rivers break from the long spell of ice-laden water and fly fishers look eagerly toward a fresh new year.” From season to season, from coastal waters to lakes and rivers throughout the province, Smith discusses both strategies and fly patterns. The book includes 32 pages of fly patterns, as well

as page after page of when, where and how. “One of the prettiest little ‘fly fishing only’ lakes in the North Caribou, beckons fly fishers to its beauty every spring and summer. Not because its trout are large and plentiful, or it’s a famous and adulterated fishery like some others, but for the reason that it’s a special fishery, one with spectacular open scenery which attracts fly fishers who appreciate a quiet and restful place…” I know just what he means. I fished such a lake for 20 years with my old dog Duff. I experienced true peace and tranquility up there. “When I return to the Stellako after a few months’ absence, it becomes more and more like an old friend to me – predictable and reliable, like a pair of well-worn shoes. I’m not in a hurry to get my rod in the water, preferring to linger a while at the bridge, watch the river move, study the flow and think of my experiences, because I know that even if I am treated unkindly (which means if I get skunked), it’s still one of the finest riv-

ers in North America, and a privilege to be near it once again.” In reading Seasons of a Fly Fisher, it is necessary to not only take in all the technical information that Smith has to offer, but also read between the lines and appreciate the experience of casting a line to the many water bodies he writes about. There is a lot in this book that one can learn. There is also a lot to simply sit back and enjoy. I am sure that Seasons of a Fly Fisher would be a much-appreciated gift for any angler who fishes B.C.’s waters. I would also highly recommend Smith’s previous volume, Fly Fishing BC’s Interior – A Fly Fisher’s Guide to the Central Interior. Both books are the kind that will inevitably find their way onto a lot of fly tying desks, not to mention a lot of anglers’ gear bags. For now, however, my copy will be staying on my night table so that I can enjoy reading it while the cold winds howl outside, and I await the coming fishing season.

Buy local this holiday season FROM THE LEGISLATURE Greg Kyllo As we approach the Christmas gift-giving season, a common panic sets in—what to buy for loved ones and acquaintances! How about a gift that benefits not only the recipient, but the community? I’m talking about buying local, which is a great way to support our local farmers and artisans. Here in the Shuswap, we’re blessed with a number of farms that I recently had the privilege to show off to Agriculture Minister Pat Pimm. We started the day at the Spallumcheen farm of the Veldhuisen family, who gave us an informative tour of their automated milking facility. We then toured the robotic milking facility at Bouwe Mediema in Trinity Valley, which

was also an eye-opener. The folks at both farms showed us how modern technology is helping to get their delicious products out to more people. We also visited the Blue Goose Cattle Company in Grindrod, the only federallyregulated organic abattoir in the province. Next up was a visit to the famous D Dutchman Dairy farm in Sicamous, where the minister and I enjoyed a delicious ice cream cone! For more than 30 years, the Dewitts have offered old-fashioned, hand-made dairy products with a focus on top-quality ingredients. We ended our trip at Farmcrest Foods, a small family-run operation in Salmon Arm. Family members spanning three generations have collectively more than 150 years of experience in the poultry industry. These visits spoke to the amazing knowledge, dedication and hard work of our farm families who supply locals and visitors with high-quality goods. It was a great learning experience for us, but

n Shuswap MLA Greg Kyllo and Agriculture Minister Pat Pimm enjoy a tour courtesy of Stuart and Josh of the Blue Goose Cattle Company. also a way for us to show our commitment to the local agriculture industry. There has been a lot of discussion recently about the B.C. government’s Core Review process, and whether it will impact the Agricultural Land Commission. Our Core Review is looking at the ALC to ensure it is set up to provide the best possible services, at the best possible value for taxpayers. Now and in the future, the ALC will continue to be an independent decisionmaker and will continue to preserve B.C.’s best agricultural land for future generations. Our commitment to

the Agricultural Land Commission remains strong. In last year’s budget, the ALC received an extra $4 million over three years to protect British Columbia’s farmland, including increased enforcement capacity. Government needs to continually look for opportunities to improve the delivery of services and ensure that they are meeting the needs of British Columbians – the ALC included. I hope we can work together to make that happen. In the meantime, buy local and enjoy a yummy holiday feast courtesy of our hard-working local farmers.

Students show their caring hearts MARKET NEWS STAff

Sorrento Elementary School is celebrating Christmas by giving. Principal Ian Landy is proud of what the school has accomplished. What he originally thought would be a small fundraiser turned into something much bigger – something that has warmed his heart. Landy explains that over the last few years the school has beeen doing a silent auction in conjunction with the Christmas concert. Margo Hall, the school’s Grade 3 teacher, has been contributing three rugs or blankets to the school to be auctioned off. Her rugs are created from bits of torn blankets, woven together into beautiful patterns. The school donates the proceeds to different causes each year, with last year’s earnings buying mosquito masks and water pumps for those in need in Africa. As the concert drew

Parents began coming forward, asking where they could donate items as well. Before Landy knew it, the school had a full

silent auction on its hands featuring a wide range of items including jewelry. Landy was surprised at the sudden flood of donations, and the school gladly adjusted its plans to include the many items. As the concert took place, many people came to bid on the auction. It wasn’t just the

parents, however, who were helping out this holiday season, but the students as well. “There were students bringing in their entire month’s allowance,” Landy said, explaining how many came armed with bags filled with coins they had saved, wanting to use them to help others.  Other students had brought in their tooth fairy money. “There were a few wet eyes,” Landy said, describing the touching moment. The school was able to raise an impressive $801.50 from the auction alone. Hall had a connection through the Red Cross as well, which offered to match the amount raised if completed before a certain date. Luckily, the children’s concert fell right before the deadline, and the school’s money qualified. The $801.50 suddenly turned into $1,603, an impressive feat for a small elementary

Christmas is a time of giving, a time for sharing and a time to come together with family and friends, and that is just what Sorrento residents plan on doing. An old tradition has been brought back to life in the Shuswap, as plans get underway for the Christmas homecoming. Many years ago the event was an annual occurrence. While many who have since left the Sorrento area would return to visit family and friends for Christmas, they often would not have enough time to see everyone they wanted. The annual homecoming event provided a central place where everyone could meet and catch up while enjoying some great entertainment. The event was very popular, and no one seems to know why, or even exactly when, the tradition stopped. It wasn’t until last year during the area’s 100year anniversary that the tradition was adopted once more as a nod to Sorrento’s past. It proved to be such a success that the event is scheduled for its traditional slot on Boxing Day, Dec. 26, once again. Homecoming organizers have decided to use the long-lost tradition as a means of supporting their community as well. They have decided that if the event makes any money, they will donate it to the Sorrento Health Centre, in support of the new occupational therapist in the area. Tickets to the event cost $15 and can be bought in advance at the Lighthouse Market as well as the Business Centre. Those attending will enjoy the talents of wellknown Shuswap entertainers, The Turtle Valley Band, throughout the night. Their music has been described as a mix of classic rock and classic country. A lunch will be provided for those who work up an appetite throughout the night, and a cash bar will also be on hand. The event is an 18-and-over event; those appearing to be 25 and under are advised to bring ID. Last year’s event attracted about 100 attendees, and this year organizers are aiming at 120. Those looking to take part in the festive gathering should be sure to get their tickets early. For more information on the event, which runs from 8:30 until 12:30 p.m. at the Sorrento Memorial Hall, call Sandra Heschuk at 250-675-2222.

Marijuana referendum petition fizzles By Jeff Nagel BLACK PRESS

The Sensible BC campaign to spark the decriminalization of marijuana in B.C. is officially up in smoke after falling short of its goal. Pot activists got 210,000 signatures or about two-thirds of the 300,000 needed –  10 per cent of voters in all 85 B.C. ridings –  for their initiative petition to potentially trigger a referendum. They had aimed for a target of

450,000 to provide a buffer against disqualified signatures. “It’s a pretty remarkable accomplishment,” said Sensible BC head Dana Larsen. “We’ve definitely demonstrated a high level of organization and support for this cause. Had we been operating under the rules of pretty much any other referendum system in the world, we would have qualified to be on the ballot.” He said the 4,500

registered petitioners – triple the number at the start of the 90-day campaign  –  reached the threshold required by Elections BC in 19 electoral districts and got at least eight per cent in five more. Successful local campaigns happened on much of Vancouver Island, in the Kootenays and other parts of the Interior. But in the vote-rich Lower Mainland that holds the most districts, marijuana advocates came up short.

Sensible BC aimed to compel the province to pass legislation banning police from expending any time and resources on simple marijuana possession. The outcome is nowhere near the 700,000 signatures gathered by Fight HST forces en route to their winning referendum. But Larsen argues the province must now look “very seriously” at the marijuana issue, particularly as states such as Washington move to full pot legalization.

A gift of beauty and balance GAIA GARDENING Margo Westaway

Well, I guess winter has finally arrived and we can call it a wrap for the year, even though some of us still manage to find things to do out there in the cold until we absolutely have to surrender to the snows. Then it’s cleaning up, putting the tools away and, the best part, settling down to a big pot of tea with a cozy blanket on our laps to flip through the pages of our favorite garden books, magazines and seed catalogues to scheme and dream about next year’s gardening season. Knowledge of certain plants and how to use them has been around for almost 35,000 years. Early peoples had knowledge of many plants through food gathering techniques. For instance, the 10,000 year old ‘Iceman’ discovered in the Alps in 1991, had two species of fungi in his pouch – a highly combustible one for starting fires and the other used for an immune booster. Around 8,500 BC in Mesopotamia, they were raising animals and growing grains

and, by 8,000 BC, cereals and legumes were under cultivation. Around the year 3,000 BC, manuals for the use of herbs in medicine were written and, in the 1700s, codes and rules were put down on paper on maintaining irrigation canals and ditches and property laws regarding gardening. Over the centuries, trade of food and plants by ship and land between villages, cities and nations have connected people from all points of the globe. Botanists continue to search the planet for new and exciting specimens, and the art, science and pastime of agriculture and horticulture have become well established. The definition of gardening is, “the practice of growing and cultivating plants as part of horticulture.” But it should go on to say that gardening is not only essential to our very existence, but it also plays an enormous role in the fabric of societies all over the world. Gardens are used for practical purposes to feed people and animals, but they also have so much more to offer us and in so many different ways. They are used as places to be calm and to heal, as sanctuaries for peace, reflection and spiritual practice; a spot to connect with nature as well as providing attractive areas for social gatherings and special occasions such as weddings and

parties. Gardens offer balance in our lives, a reason to be outdoors in the fresh air and sunshine, for exercise, a place to think, blow off steam and be creative. They are a wonderful subject for artists and photographers, fun and enchanting places to play for children and a memory trigger for the elderly, who often love to reflect on their own past gardens and farmsteads.

“Gardens are used for practical purposes to feed people and animals, but they also have so much more to offer us and in so many different ways.”

Gardens bring colour and beauty to the world, provide an important food source to our pollinators, and offer habitat for an amazing variety of insects, worms, birds and small animals. I find it hard to imagine what our communities would look like without the streets that are lined with hedges, flowers, pretty ornamental trees and shrubs, along with the interesting fences, garden gates and ornaments. Those glorious cascading hanging baskets dangling from the

lampposts, and the municipal gardens that offer green spaces and a place to sit and rest are worth every tax dollar to me. Our nurseries, plant and garden supply stores and florists are always such amazing and delightful places to wander through and shop, and the farmers’ markets are a magnet for so many, not just for the freshness of the fruits and vegetables, but just to experience such a variety of foods, flowers, plants and edibles that we’re so fortunate to have available to us. In Donna Sinclair’s book, The Spirituality of Gardening, she says, “I believe our gardens to be more than dry soil and cedars huddled against the foundation of our homes; more even than the glorious colour and texture, shape and form of a well-loved border that draws passersby to wonder. Gardens are our connection to the land and to the One who created it. They are autobiography, memory and hope. Gardeners strive to re-create Eden on their own small pieces of earth.” We are now entering the Christmas season, when we begin more than ever to reflect and remember our blessings in life and to give and receive gifts. As for me, and I’m

sure for so many others, I’d like to express my thanks, appreciation and gratitude to all of our gardeners, farmers, horticulturists, landscapers, landscape maintenance people and municipal crews, along with the countless others who own or organize the nurseries, florist shops, farmers’ markets, seed, food, soil and bee keeping businesses, the garden stores, hanging basket suppliers and our educators for giving us your gifts of fresh food, flowers, plants, knowledge, creativity and skill in this beautiful and bountiful place we call home in the Shuswap.

INFORMATION DESIGNED TO PROMOTE AND ENHANCE YOUR WELLBEING

Protect your back by following these tips when shoveling snow ( N C ) — S h ove l i n g snow can be a pain in more ways than one. These tips from the Ontario Chiropractic Association will help to keep your back in top shape: • Don’t let the snow pile up: If the weather report calls for several days of snow, frequent shoveling will allow you to move smaller amounts of snow at once. It’s far less strenuous in the long run. • Pick the right shovel: Use a lightweight pusher-type shovel. If you are using a metal shovel, spray it with Teflon first,

so snow won’t stick to it. • Push, don’t throw: Always push the snow to the side rather than throw it.

That way you avoid lifting heavy shovelfuls of snow, and sudden twisting or turning movements. • Bend your knees:

As with any heavy object, you need to use your knees, leg and arm muscles to do the pushing and lifting, while

keeping your back straight. • Take a break: If you feel tired or short of breath, stop and take a rest. Shake out your arms and legs. Stop shoveling immediately if you feel chest pain or back pain. If you have back pain that is severe or that persists for more than a day after shoveling, see a chiropractor. If you have chest pain that is severe, see a doctor immediately. More information can be found online at www.yourbackhealth.com. www.newscanada.com

Important reminders to help with virus prevention (NC) With cold and flu season upon us, parents often worry about how to keep their kids from coming down with sore throats, runny noses, coughs and fevers. To minimize the spread of such viruses, and to protect your child from experiencing the symptoms, take a look at these simple but important tips: 1. Cover your mouth

when you sneeze. Cold and flu viruses are often spread through sneezing. Make sure everyone in the family coughs or sneezes into their sleeve to help prevent the spread of germs. 2. Wash your hands. Teaching your children to wash their hands properly is essential for staving off viruses. There are even some innovative soap

brands to make it lots of fun. Kandoo moisturizing hand soap, for example, contains Vitamin E and natural fruit extracts to moisturize while cleaning. It pumps out bright, colourful foam which makes hand washing fun by letting your child see when they are covered with soap which can lead to a better clean. 3. Eat and sleep well.

Make sure your child gets plenty of sleep, drinks lots of fluids and eats nutritious foods. The right amount of nutritious food and sleep will help to keep a little one healthy and will guard against sickness during the cold winter months. More information is available online at KandooKids.ca. www.newscanada.com

The City of Salmon Arm and the District of Sicamous are supporting two initiatives to help youth get started in business. Both municipal councils responded positively to a letter form Community Futures executive director Joanne Mason, asking they consider waiving the business licence fee for those enrolled in Community Futures’ Summer Student Youth Entrepreneur lending program, for school, college and university students, as well as their Biz Kids Program, for youth ages 10 to 16. Both programs are aimed at helping participants establish their own business in the summer months. Salmon Arm council was told the city cannot waive fees, but that council initiatives could be used to cover the cost of the 10 to 12 applications that may come forward in 2014. Alternatively, Community Futures could apply on behalf of participants. Being a non-profit organization, they would be exempt from paying fees. Staff will be looking to see what might work best and report back to council. In Sicamous, Coun. Suzanne Carpenter said the district needs to do whatever it can to support youth in the community. Asked if there might be any budget implications, district administrator Heidi Frank commented, “Not really, because the flipside of this is, if this program wasn’t in place we probably wouldn’t get the businesses anyways.”

FROM THE HILL Colin Mayes Canadians have read in horror of the tragic suicides of teens bullied through social media. Often intimate images have gone viral without the consent. With the click of a computer mouse, a person can be victimized before the entire world. As we have seen far too often, such conduct can destroy lives. It clearly demands a stronger criminal justice response. Your government takes seriously this type of bullying and the Minister of Justice Peter MacKay, has introduced a bill to address this issue. This bill will prohibit the non-consensual distribution of intimate images; empower a court to order the removal of the intimate

Tackling the issue of cyberbullying images from the Internet; permit the court to order forfeiture of the computer, cell phone or other device used in the offence; provide for reimbursement to victims for costs incurred in removing the image from the internet or elsewhere; and empower the court to prevent someone from distributing images. The Minister of Public Safety and National Security Steven Blaney, stated, “We are committed to reminding victims that they are not alone, and encouraging them to reach out to a teacher, a trusted adult, a parent or friend. Bullying, whether online or off, is a problem that affects us all, and we all have a role to play in stopping it.” Your government is also supporting the development of a number of school-based projects to prevent bullying. Citizens have the liberty to use the Internet freely and without scrutiny by government as long as the exercise of that liberty does not compromise the liberty of a fellow citizen.

The public can have a say on highway safety and speed limits in British Columbia, as the public consultation component of the Rural Highway Safety and Speed Review gets underway. Up to Jan. 24, the B.C. government is conducting a province-wide consultation and engagement to seek input about safety and speed limits on B.C.’s rural highways. Through a series of open houses and online engagement, the public can have their say on safety issues facing drivers on these highways. Speed limits on longer stretches of rural highways between communities are being reviewed to ensure that appropriate speed limits are in place, encouraging safe driver behaviour. At the same time, the public will be asked to provide input related to reducing the risk of wildlife-related crashes and improving the safe and efficient movement of slower vehicles. This review will also include public consultation on the use of winter tires in an effort to ensure that tire requirements address safety and reflect current technology. Public input will form an important part of the Rural Highway Safety and Speed Review and will be considered in conjunction with the technical review, which is already underway. Included for consideration in the technical review are new technology, highway design and similar initiatives in other jurisdictions. The ministry will also be seeking input from ICBC, police, the Union of B.C. Municipalities, as well as other key stakeholders. Practical recommendations from this review and a strategy for implementation will be ready in early spring 2014. Written submissions can be sent by email to safetyandspeedreview@gov.bc.ca. To submit completed printed surveys, or for those who prefer to submit comments and suggestion using regular mail, please send these to: PO Box 3522, Vancouver Main, Vancouver, B.C., V6B 3Y4. You can also call toll free: 1-855-974-1330.

SPORTS Santa Cruise set for Sunday at Larch Hills helicopter crash near Revelstoke in summer 1985 while on a forestfire fighting crew. The Larch Hills Marathon,

which we launched in January 1985, became the Reino Keski-Salmi Loppet the very next year in honour of our

hometown hero. Join us Jan. 19 in our annual winter nordic ski celebration. Think snow!

TRAIL TALES Marcia Beckner Brrr! What a cold snap we had. It didn’t deter hardy skiers from taking advantage of the terrific conditions in the Larch Hills, especially with the arrival of our new track setter. Thanks to the club members, notably the treasurers (especially treasurer John Pagdin), who had the foresight a decade ago to put aside monies each year in a track-setter replacement fund knowing that this day would come. Lots of activities are planned on the hill in the next few weeks. This Sunday is the 13th annual Santa Cruise event – free technique, distances for everyone culminating in a visit from Santa Claus and followed by the hotlycontested auction in aid of the areas’ food banks. It’s a great start to the Christmas season. Register by 10:30 a.m. for an 11 a.m. start. Last Saturday was to be the first Jackrabbit session; however, the temperature was too cold so the startup is this Saturday. So

PHOTO CONTRIBUTED

n Larch Hills Nordic Society’s new groomer/tracksetter arrived on the hill on Dec. 4, a 2007 Edge that was used for the first three years at the 2010 Olympics and came to the society from Saskatchewan. It replaces a 2002 PB 200 that was traded  in. Machines as such give the society the ability to groom more than 50 kilometres of trail for classic and skating for its 900 members and visitors. wonderful to see the hill crawling with all these young skiers with their enthusiastic leaders. Of course, the Junior Race Team skiers continue their training sessions in the Larch Hills, readying themselves for a full season of races starting with the first Okanagan Teck Cup race in Revelstoke, Sunday, Dec. 29. We are gearing up for the very popular annual Lantern Ski, Saturday, Dec. 28. About 230 lanterns have to be cleaned and filled, the lantern posts put up around the course, and the lanterns lit by a cadre of lamp lighters by 5 p.m. on the evening of the event. Quite ingenious is the method of lighting the lanterns. Each pair of lantern lighters has a 28 ounce tin can with the

top cut off one end. In the middle of the side of the can a small hole is bored to hold a short candle. A wire handle is fashioned to carry the can with lit candle, which stays lit because it is enclosed in the can. The candle is lit at the outset of the lighting session and, as each pair arrives at the lantern to be lit, the lighter takes a long match stick and lights the match using the candle in the can. We all know how difficult it can be to light a match on a wet match box and it is usually too cold to use a butane lighter. This method works well. Jim Beckner came up with this idea a few years back when we were finding lighting these suckers very

frustrating. The 30th annual Reino Keski-Salmi Loppet is fast approaching. A bit of history: Our Larch Hills Nordic Society really owes its existence to Reino KeskiSalmi. As a young, successful cross-country ski racer, Reino was skiing out of the Revelstoke Club by necessity since his hometown, Salmon Arm, didn’t have a club. Stig Keskinen and a committee took it upon themselves to start the Larch Hills Ski Club back in 1977. Reino trained hard and became champion in the North American Ski Chase in 1979. He was a National Ski Team member and great inspiration to our club when he was tragically killed in a

CHASE Winter hazard n A snowmobiler

enjoys a run on Crowfoot Mountain, but authorities are warning people to take proper precautions and survival gear before heading out.

D E C E M B E R

MARKET NEWS STAFF

It was a cold, blustery night when eight members of the volunteer Shuswap Search and Rescue headed out to Crowfoot Mountain above Celista to look for a missing snowmobiler. Several snowmobilers from Kamloops had gone to the popular spot for an afternoon of sledding. Shuswap SAR search manager John Schut says his group received a call for assistance from the Emergency Co-ordination Centre at 10:45 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 8. A young man from Kamloops had gone missing around 3:30 in the afternoon. “He was out snowmobiling with his

the night.” Fortunately, a member of the Crowfoot Mountain Snowmobile Club found the missing sledder about 4:30 a.m. Schut says that when the SAR members arrived at the parking lot at Crowfoot Mountain, they learned the snowmobile club had begun looking for the lost sledder late in the afternoon after his friends reported him missing to a parking attendant. “They go out in groups of four,” said Schut, who noted four members of the Shuswap SAR’s “Avi Team” took part in the search. The members of this specialized avalanche team have received training from the Canadian Avalanche Training Centre.

“It was snowing fairly heavily at times,” he says. “It wasn’t the most pleasant condi-

Sledder found on mountain friends; he got stuck and they kept going and they lost him,” says Schut, noting the event is a reminder for people to keep an eye on one another when out in the wilderness. When the friends realized the man, about 20 years old, was no longer with them, they set back to find him. In the meantime, he managed to extricate himself and set off to find his buddies, getting lost in the process. “Of course he wasn’t in the spot where he was before,” says Schut, pointing out the young sledder eventually ran out of gas. “He’s a smart kid, he had good clothes, the ability to make a fire and built himself a snow shelter where he hunkered down and was ready to stay for

Exciting hockey weekend By Scott Koch

MARKET NEWS CONTRIBUTOR

This past weekend your Chase Heat entertained the division-leading Kamloops Storm on Friday, Dec. 6 in a tight home game at Art Holding Memorial Arena. This one ended up with the Storm taking a 5-2 victory, but only due to a superior third period by the visitors. The two teams exchanged two goals each in the second after a scoreless first, Kaleb Boyle and Nic Fidanza doing the local damage. Michael Byer went the distance for Chase stopping 32 of 37. An entertaining game

that resulted in no points for the Heat. On Sunday the 8th, the Heat hosted the Columbia Valley Rockies from Invermere in their only visit here in two years. Another very entertaining contest saw the hometown boys take a double overtime victory 5-4. Trevor Okino potted a long shot goal in the first, Kurtis Johnson got one in the second and Boyle got his first, a powerplay marker. In the third, the teams exchanged goals with Fidanza getting his 12 minutes in to tie up the contest. In double overtime on a penalty shot, Boyle put the biscuit in the basket to send a couple of hun-

dred fans home very happy. Of special note, former Heat player Mitchell Rosko, “The Rouge Rocket,” opened scoring for the Rockies. The Heat are currently third in the standings, four back of the 100 Mile House Wranglers but hold two games in hand. Boyle is 16th in KIJHL scoring, Connor Venne 18th and Johnson 20th. Next up are two home games, Friday night (tonight) versus the Princeton Posse and Sunday at 2 p.m. versus the Osoyoos Coyotes. Put on your winter gear and come out to the rink and support the hottest thing on cool ice!

Chase Hamper Society needs your help Hard times at Christmas have once again inspired a Chase councillor to help those in need. Coun. Rick Berrigan took some time at Tuesday’s council meeting to address the local Chase Hamper Society, and the service they provide to the

community. Berrigan explained how the holidays can be a tough time of year, and that the Hamper Society helps those in need by ensuring their cupboards are full during the holiday season. Berrigan said he believes in the service the society provides,

Fire department marks 100 market news staff

A special meeting will take place Friday, Dec. 13 at Firehall #3. It will be 100 years to the day that the City Protection Association was formed, with an elected fire chief, deputy chief and secretary, and a call to volunteers to form a fire brigade. Also on the agenda of that inaugural meeting was a plan seeking city council’s support for pay rates – $50 per year for the fire chief, $2 per fire for firefighters and $1 for practices. A committee was struck to investigate the matter of drying fire hose, buying ladders and a way to alert firefighters to a fire. “It’s interesting to read through it to see how it was developed,” says fire chief Brad Shirley, leafing through the pages of the fire department’s original meeting book. “Even things we do today, like meeting on Tuesday nights for example – 1923 is when they started practising Tuesday night. Prior to that it was Friday nights.” The other thing Shirley finds quite interesting is that either the mayor or alderman would attend the meetings and always had praise for “the boys.” While there are no women in the Salmon Arm Fire Department at the present time, there have been four in recent years – all of them excellent and well-respected by the men they worked with. Returning to the 100-year-old meeting book, Shirley is intrigued by the fire brigade’s continuing and often challenging efforts to acquire new equipment. “It took them three years to get a ‘fog nozzle,’” says Shirley, looking at the aged handwriting. “The chief explained why he was looking for one, but it doesn’t say what it was.” In April 1914, the city passed an order to procure a fire bell and au-

thorized $275 for a new firehall. “Although not found in any records, it is presumed the firehall on the corner of Shuswap Street and Okanagan Avenue was constructed sometime between April 15 and October of that year because the next official meeting was held Oct. 16, 1914 in the firehall,” Shirley says, of the hall that included two bays and small living quarters for a caretaker. “The caretaker was provided free power and water and following someone knocking on the door to report a fire, had to continuously ring the bell until members of the brigade arrived at the firehall.” The bell worked well for several years but was sometimes confused with the ringing of nearby church bells. It was silenced sometime around 1929 when it was discovered a siren could be operated through the telephone company. That original bell has been given a new and decorative life in front of Firehall #3, following “a smoking deal” from QC Powder Coating to sandblast, fill and paint the large Bessemes Alarm Bell. “The department appeared to have pro-

gressed well through the years, purchasing equipment and ensuring the members were not overworked by offering $5 to the first team of horses or truck to arrive at the firehall to pull the hose reels to fire calls,” Shirley says. In 1936, crews and equipment were moved into the city’s old Power House Building on Ross Street, at the site of Hall #3’s current truck bays. In 1940 the fire department purchased its first motorized vehicle – a 1934 Chev farm truck for $700, which was converted into a hose and ladder truck. “This truck, along with the reels and other historic local firefighting equipment is on display at R.J. Haney Heritage Park’s Firehall built by the Salmon Arm Volunteer Firefighters Association in 1990. From one small firehall equipped with two bays, the Salmon Arm Fire Department has grown to include halls in Canoe, South Broadview and Gleneden. And while firefighting equipment and techniques may have changed over the past 100 years, commitment to safety and protecting the community remains as strong as it was a century ago.

It’s a pride that runs for a century through the fire department but in Shirley’s family as well. His grandfather, George was a charter member of the department and his father, Pat served for 40 years. In 1976, Shirley’s brother Jim joined the department and continues in his role as Hall #3 captain. Another brother, Greg, retired in 2013 after 20 years of service.

Rotary Update Shuswap Rotary Club

A Rewarding Belgium Exchange The Chase Rotary Club sponsored Michelle Davies on her year-long exchange trip to Belgium, where she lived with host families and attended school for a year. The following is a brief summation of her exciting year! different trips during my year abroad. During my stay in Belgium, I was fortunate to have three different host families. Often people would ask, why not stay with just one family instead of three? When the time came to move from my first family to my second and again from my second family to my third, I was asking myself the same question. Throughout the months that I stayed with each family, however, I grew close to each of them and became comfortable in their homes. Each shared with me a different family rhythm and their unique traditions. I cherish the memories I made with every From a young age I knew that travelling was something that I wanted to do. I felt that the only real way to learn about the world and different cultures was to immerse myself in them. Fortunately, not long after Christmas in my grade twelve year, I had an opportunity to begin an adventure unsurpassed by anything in my life up to that point. By late spring the plans were set in place. That fall, two months after graduating, I would leave the country for the first time in my life on a plane bound for Belgium. What awaited me there was a whole new life and endless exploration. My host family welcomed me and did their best to make me feel comfortable. They shared their traditions with me and always treated me as if I was one of their own. The students at school were kind and curious, often asking me how I was settling or going out of their way to help me learn the language. My host club in Belgium and my counselor tried to

engage me in the club and supported me by making themselves available for questions or concerns. My host club in Canada kept in touch and was always happy to listen to my stories. My family at home was also supportive and excited to hear my updates while learning to understand that I was busy and couldn’t always be in contact as I immersed myself in a new life. The time flew by and my days were always filled. I was busy with school and friends, gymnastics and family time, Rotary events and fellow exchange students. As one of over 250 exchange students studying in Belgium I appreciated the convenience of the trains and the proximity to other cities. We were able to travel throughout the country. I met students who came from all over the world and together we ventured to cities that offered an abundance of new sights and rich history. In addition to traveling in Belgium I was able to visit nine other countries on six

family I stayed with and I am so grateful that they opened their homes to me. It goes without saying that my experience as an exchange student was incredible, but I wouldn’t be telling the whole truth if I didn’t admit that there were times it was challenging. Learning a new language isn’t easy and missing my family and friends was a struggle at times. I always knew it was worth it, though, and I did my best to make the most of every moment. By doing this, I was given a life changing and eye opening adventure. I made memories that I will always cherish and formed relationships

that I hope to maintain throughout my life. My gratitude for this opportunity presented to me by the Rotary club is inexpressible. From the preparation stages until the end of the journey students are supported and safe. I encourage any student to take advantage of this amazing opportunity. I can say confidently that it will change their lives in ways they cannot begin to imagine creating a new outlook. Today, I am moving forward in life, shaped by my year abroad. My passion for travel has only strengthened as I study international politics and economics at TRU. ~ By Michelle Davies

Sharing the Christmas Spirit The Chase Rotary Club recently participated in the Chase Country Christmas Parade, held November 29. Our float consisted of a number of Rotarians walking and handing out candy canes, followed by our two Shuswap Reindeer, ably lead by Rotarian Arne

Raven and a friend of Rotary! Of course the show wouldn’t be complete without the cleanup crew following behind in the person of President Doug Everett! Kym Rampone and Yvonne Heese lead the Chase Rotary Parade Crew!

This is the 25th anniversary of Beeftink’s transplant and he wears a white T-shirt with the date – Dec. 26, 1988 – and a heart to commemorate the event. “I’ve always said if you could be a recipient you can be an organ donor,” said Beeftink. “If you’re wondering

whether you should be donors and sign the (donor) card, if you can see yourself or a love one receiving a transplant, if you can receive one you can be a donor too.” For both men, life post-transplant is grand. Beeftink is into his third year of retirement enjoys spending time with his three kids and six grandchildren. Parsons, who has three daughters, is happy to be working again. “As you know, firefighting is very stressful but the transplant has allowed me to go

At Your Service

Operations are something Brian Parsons and Tony Beeftink have in common. Both men are heart transplant recipients, given the gift of life by organ donors and their families, along with the surgical crews who performed and looked after the men post-surgery. Both were at Vernon Jubilee Hospital last Tuesday for an operation of a giving kind. The pair were on hand for Operation Popcorn, in which they

presented tins of popcorn – a heart healthy snack – to staff in the intensive care unit, emergency department and operating rooms.  Operation Popcorn is a weeklong, province-wide initiative of B.C. Transplant. “It’s always important to raise awareness for transplants in general,” said Parsons, 49, a Vernon firefighter and believed to be the only firefighter in North America working fulltime after receiving a heart transplant nearly six years ago. “This is my first time with Operation Pop-
