Family escapes early morning fire

Close call: Seven-year-old Sicamous girl wakes up to find her mattress ablaze. By Lachlan Labere

market news staff

A Sicamous family had quite a scare when their daughter woke up to find her bed on fire. Sometime after 1 a.m. on Monday, seven-year old Violet-Mae Sholtz was startled out of bed when she rolled over and saw it was on fire. Wysteria, Violet-Mae’s mom, said her daughter ran out of the bedroom and woke her dad, Warren, who was sleeping in the living

room. When he went in with a fire extinguisher, the flames were already up to the ceiling. The family, including VioletMae’s older brother and one-yearold sister, along with pets, were quickly gathered outside on the driveway. “It was pretty awful, but we’re just all really happy that we’re not in the hospital or mourning somebody,” said Wysteria. Sicamous Fire Chief Brett Ogino says that at 1:23 a.m., firefighters

received a call about a structure fire on McLean-McPherson Road. When they arrived, firefighters found it was, in fact, a residential fire. “Fortunately, though, there’s smoke damage and a bit of a nicesized burn mark up the wall… The residents, they were able to extinguish it and got the kids out…,” said Ogino. “The house is OK, there is some pretty good smoke damage… I talked to the little girl and she said she kind of woke up,

rolled over and she could see fire in front of her face. A little scary.” Ogino believes the fire started from an electrical outlet near the bed. “We’re not sure why the electrical plug would cause it, but you could see it started right there…,” said Ogino. Wysteria says Violet-Mae is still disturbed by the incident, and none of the kids slept after the emergenSee Fire on page A3

Survey focuses on watershed By Barb Brouwer

market news staff

Monitoring and managing water quality in the Shuswap is the focus of the newly created Shuswap Watershed Council. The council is an offshoot of the Shuswap Lake Integrated Planning Process that had multiple objectives and is coming to an end on March 31. Water quality monitoring will continue through 2014. The new council is seeking public input as it develops a water quality program for 2015 and beyond.

“The members of the steering committee have developed a program outline based on what we think is needed in the Shuswap to protect the water quality and ensure safe recreation on the lakes,” says Columbia Shuswap Regional District Area C director Paul Demenok, noting the vision has always been a program created in the Shuswap, by the people of the Shuswap, for the Shuswap. “We are ready to present the outline to the public and get their feedback on it.”

Before the council moves ahead, members are looking to the public for their input on the objectives and strategies. The terms of reference that outline the program can be read online at Everyone is encouraged to read the threepage document and complete a brief survey located at the same website. Survey respondents may enter a draw to win a $150 gift certificate to a Shuswap-based business of their choice.

Fire started with electrical outlet Continued from front cy evacuation. “We’re all taking the day off school…, we’re staying home today and we’re just going

to hang out at grandma and grandpa’s…, we’re all just going to take it easy,” she said. Ogino is grateful the family got out OK, adding late-night fire calls can be unsettling

for everyone involved. “I never like those late-night structure fire calls – this was as good as they get. I’m glad everyone is safe, that was our biggest concern,” said Ogino.

Heated discussion

A Tribute to Anne Murray Sweeping tribute honours Canada’s sweetheart.

n Actors Teresa McKerral and Eric Reynard rehearse a scene from the upcoming production of Distracted, which will run on three weekends from Feb. 21 to March 8 at Shuswap Theatre.

Barefoot books honour kids One of Canada’s great children’s musicians is on a new mission. Concerned about the future of children and the dilemmas they will face, well-loved troubadour, Raffi, has crafted two books, Child Honouring and LightwebDarkweb to shine a light on the issue. “The Covenant for Honouring Children” and its nine principles express the heart of the Child Honouring vision, which offers an organizing principle for societal change: a new partnership with our children, with each other and with the planet – a societal redesign that meets the needs of its youngest citizens.

Child Honouring principles are respectful love, diversity, caring community, conscious parenting, emotional intelligence, nonviolence, safe environments, sustainability and ethical commerce. To foster this cause, there will be a sale of Barefoot Books, a new line of books, at the Mall at Piccadilly on Family Day, Monday, Feb. 10 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. All proceeds from the sale of the books that are attracting parents and grandparents worldwide, will go to the Centre for Child Honouring. For more information, call Joan Sturdy at 250-804-3008.

This multi-media show will take fans of Anne Murray back over four decades of hits and career highlights, including 24 Juno Awards and four Grammys. Fellow Nova Scotian Laura Gillespie and her amazing band deliver genuine reproductions of all the favourite hits, including “Snowbird”, “ Could I have this Dance”, “A Little Good News”, “You Needed Me”, “Daydream Believer” and many more.

New liquor rules will add responsibility Big changes are afoot in the administration of liquor in this province. And while most of the changes mark a shift toward treating adults as adults, among those who choose to drink, not everyone exhibits adult behaviour where the consumption of alcohol is concerned. Part of the proposed changes include eliminating beer gardens, the penned off areas at public events that separate “family” areas from those where carded adults may purchase and drink alcohol. But the potential for problems doesn’t lie with the majority of people who will obey the law, behave themselves and ensure that only adults in their group partake in alcoholic beverages. It’s with the small minority who choose to flout the rules, get drunk and obnoxious in a “family” area and perhaps worse, buy alcohol for under-aged drinkers. Promoters of music festivals and other similar large-crowd events have applauded the proposed changes, saying they will bring B.C. into the 21st century when it comes to treating people with respect and allowing them to make the right choices. But what about festival-goers who don’t make the right choices? Attendees will need to be watched closely as new rules are phased in. Based on past experience, we expect the province to shift that task onto liquor licensees, in this case, the people who stage community events. Will those organizations, many of which operate largely on a volunteer basis, have the resources or the expertise to take on the role of ensuring liquor doesn’t fall into the hands of minors? What’s clear is these issues will need to be addressed before the province puts pen to paper and creates new regulations. - Victoria News

Strange things in the midnight sun As winter winds continue to blow and the temperature seems determined to drop to below -10 degrees Celsius, I long for spring – to sit out in one of the Adirondack chairs in my front yard, beneath the cherry trees, and just feel the warmth of the sun on my face. I long to absorb all the wonderful, life-giving rays of that celestial body around which planet Earth revolves – to simply close my eyes and let my thoughts drift. I dislike winter with all the passion and venom of rattlesnake that has just been stepped on by cogged boots. I don’t like the cold. I don’t like the snow and I don’t like having to go out in the cold and snow. I’m sorry, but I have absolutely no desire to take part in any sort of winter sport. For the life of me, I do not understand why anyone would want to go ice-fishing – it defies logic. Why would anyone want to sit for hours staring down at a small round hole cut through the ice, with the ice cracking and

“Just as dying is part of the life of an individual, and part of the life and history of a family, caring for those among us who are dying is part of the ongoing life of the community.”

VIEW POINT Shuswap Water Action Team supports CSRD vote Our thanks to directors who rejected Blind Bay Resort’s rezoning application. We believe the majority of residents of Area C support your decision. We applaud that you recognized the potential long-term impacts on the bay and water quality. Approval would have allowed current and future owners to alter  uses within the zoning and perhaps even initiate commer-

cial houseboat operations. Your decision recognizes that development of the bay should primarily reflect the desires of the residents, not just seasonal users. Many of the applicant’s supporters are from outside the area, and stood to gain personally, to our detriment. However, concerns are now being raised over a group lobbying the CSRD to request a

re-vote, which is being given serious consideration by the board. The CSRD always made it abundantly clear that once a public hearing is over, it’s illegal to try to influence the CSRD’s decision. Any attempt to influence a re-vote is clearly an attempt to influence the board decision. It should not be allowed. The public process needs to be fair and consistent, and perceived as such.

To call a re-vote without proper cause and process, based on a lobby from  one portion of the community, would make a mockery of the entire publichearing process. No doubt it could be contested under BC Government regulations. It would seriously undermine the credibility of the CSRD, opening the door for future confrontations. This has been a long process. Most residents

consider the matter closed. However, as the supporters continue to lobby, residents are  uncertain if further action is required. This exacerbates the unfair and inconsistent public process. We respectfully ask that your decision  be final, not subject to undue influence. Ray Nadeau and Shuswap Water Action Team directors

Lake water quality an ongoing concern For seven years the Official Community Plan Committee has worked to ensure the South Shuswap has the best environment possible to live in. To not accept their findings and decisions now seems a little late. Protection of our valuable water is of the utmost priority. The quality of lake water

drawn into the pumping station near the Blind Bay Resort will suffer if there is more moorage and residential housing added. As a resident I would have concern about this. A majority of the houses are on septic systems – not everyone is hooked to the sewer lagoon system. There is much shale

rock in the Blind Bay area. This rock enables water to eventually seep down to the lake. An example of this is at the underpass. The water seeps year-round, causing ice in the winter which someone colours very nicely. As for the CSRD and its Directors, it is one vote per director, no

matter which area is in question. Population size of an electoral area has no bearing on the vote. The representative of that area needs to know the wishes of as many constituents as possible, and vote accordingly. Bob Hardy, Blind Bay

Fretless to fiddle at Carlin The audience is in for an evening of fine fiddling on Feb. 12 at Carlin Hall. Winners of the 2012 Western Canadian Music Award for Instrumental Album of the Year and the 2012 Canadian Folk Music Awards for Instrumental Group and Ensemble of the Year, Canadian indie string quartet, The Fretless, follows up its attention-getting debut album with a genre-defying sophomore effort that marries the 20-something musicians’ love of early Canadian and Irish fiddle tunes with their passion for classical music, global roots and contemporary pop. The players – one a decorated Canadian fiddle champion, one an honours Berklee grad, and two who are both of the above – perform everything from a Radiohead cover to a set of original reels with breathtaking virtuosity and a gripping sense of emotional nuance.   If their Waterbound wasn’t enough to turn heads with its

South Shuswap chamber reinvents itself

DIRECTOR’S NOTES Paul Demenok It’s great to see the South Shuswap Chamber of Commerce has been revitalized after being dormant for most of 2013. The new board of directors includes: Brad Davies, president, Tim Thompson, vice-president, Erica Zazzi, treasurer, and directors Gareth Seys, Dan Baskill, Brad Long, Brad Scott, Fiona Harris, Dee Crinion, Dave Brice, Samara Sonmore, Katlin Zsufa and Robin Cyr. And, after playing an instrumental role in the chamber’s revitalization, Karen Brown has been hired as manager. The chamber’s mission statement is, “A non-partisan organization established to foster, promote and improve business development in a respon-

sible manner while providing value to membership through benefits, partnerships, communications, advocacy and initiatives.” Membership benefits include: group insurance plans including dental and medical coverage, and discounts with numerous businesses/ services. The South Shuswap chamber, in co-operation with neighbouring chambers, hosts a variety of workshops for its members. The next workshop is an allday social media boot camp with Sean Smith at Quaaout Lodge on Saturday, April 5. Participants will learn how to integrate Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, Pinterest and other platforms to reach new customers, and to deepen relationships with existing customers. The workshop is open to the public, but members will receive a discount on admission. Partnerships and networking are facilitated at a variety of social events including “after five socials” at member businesses every second month, and busi-

ness breakfasts every alternate month. Communications with members and the public are enhanced with the new chamber website, which includes a series of regular e-newsletters to provide updates on chamber initiatives. Perhaps the most important function of the chamber is its role as an advocate for small business and economic development. The chamber can play an instrumental role in representing the economic interests of a community at all levels of government. This element has been missing for the South Shuswap over the past year, which is why I am so strongly supportive of the revitalization of our local chamber. Economic initiatives developed through the Columbia Shuswap Regional District’s economic development department, as well as Shuswap Tourism, are often communicated and implemented through local Chambers of Commerce. The chamber is also developing its

own unique and exciting events, including an Outdoor Living and Boating Show on June 28-29, a “Good Bye to Summer Celebration” rib cook-off and corn roast on Aug. 24, and a Christmas dinner/ dance later in the year. Lots of great things are happening at the chamber. I would strongly encourage all South Shuswap businesses to become active members now. Membership information and enrolment packages, as well as registration for the upcoming workshop are available on the chamber’s website, www. For more information, contact Karen Brown at 250515-0002, or email her at If you would like to suggest topics for future articles, or participate in community advisory panel surveys, please contact me at pdemenok@csrd. -Paul Demenok is the Area C Director for the Columbia Shuswap Regional District.

In this file photo, various Kellogg brand cereals are displayed. reduction in calories translates into consumers’ diets. When the companies made the pledge in 2010, they said one way they would try and reduce calories would be to change portion sizes in an attempt to persuade consumers to eat less. The companies also said that they would develop new lower-calorie options and change existing products so they have fewer calories. Evidence of those efforts are visible on any grocery store shelf. Many products now come in lower calorie versions, are baked instead of fried, or sold in miniature as well as larger versions. Marks says he believes that companies’ efforts to package smaller servings -- 100 calorie packs of popular snacks, for example -- and smaller cans of sugary drinks may have contributed to the reduction in calories. He says the main contributors most likely were the public’s increasing willingness to buy healthier foods and companies responding to those con-


releasing the entire study, but they said Thursday that the companies have exceeded their own goals by a wide margin. Dr. James Marks, director of the Health Group at the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, said the group is pleased with the results but the companies “must sustain that reduction, as they’ve pledged to do, and other food companies should follow their lead.” The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation is a nonpartisan philanthropic and research organization that works to improve the nation’s health. Even though the companies that made the commitment represent most of the nation’s most well-known food companies, they sold only around a third of all packaged foods and beverages at the beginning of the study. Missing are many off-label brands sold under the names of retailers, and it’s unknown whether those products have changed. It is also unclear how the




Mary Clare Jalonick, The Associated Press Some of the largest food companies in the U.S. have cut daily calorie counts by an average of 78 per person, a new study says, more than four times the amount the industry pledged to slash by next year. The study sponsored by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation found that between 2007 and 2012, the estimated the total cut in food product calories to be about 6.4 trillion. Seventy-eight calories would be about the same as an average cookie or a medium apple, and the federal government estimates an average daily diet at around 2,000 calories. The study said the calories cut averaged out to 78 calories per day for the entire U.S. population. The 2010 pledge taken by 16 companies -- including General Mills Inc., Campbell Soup Co., ConAgra Foods Inc., Kraft Foods Inc., Kellogg Co., Coca-Cola Co., PepsiCo Inc. and Hershey Co. -- was to cut 1 trillion calories by 2012 and 1.5 trillion calories by 2015. The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation signed on to hold the companies accountable, and that group hired researchers at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill to painstakingly count the calories in almost every single packaged item in the grocery store. To do that, the UNC researchers used the store-based scanner data of hundreds of thousands of foods, commercial databases and nutrition facts panels to calculate exactly how many calories the companies were selling. The researchers aren’t yet

sumers. The companies involved are all part of an industry coalition of food businesses called the Healthy Weight Commitment Foundation that has organized to help reduce obesity. The foundation pledged to reduce the calories as part of an agreement with a group of non-profit organizations and made the 2010 announcement as part of first lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move campaign to combat childhood obesity. Lisa Gable of the Healthy Weight Commitment Foundation says the study’s findings “exceeded our expectations.” She said the companies achieved the goal by coming together and also competing to make new lower-calorie foods. Market studies have shown that many of the healthier foods have outperformed other products, she said. “This is a very significant shift in the marketplace,” Gable said.

Councillors to head east for conference By Lachlan Labere


This year, two city councillors will be making use of the $7,000 budgeted for them to attend a four-day Federation of Canadian Municipalities conference in Niagara Falls. Couns. Chad Eliason and Debbie Cannon were selected to attend the May 30 to June 2 event. Though the city budgets annually for two councillors to attend FCM ($3,500 per person for 2014), this will be the first time in three years that anyone from the city has opted to attend. The last two FCM conferences were held in Vancouver and Saskatoon. In 2011, Eliason and former Mayor Marty Bootsma attended the FCM conference in Halifax. The selection of this year’s attendees wound up being determined on a first-come basis, with Eliason and Cannon expressing interest last year.

“We budget for two councillors generally per year to go and no one has taken advantage of it or attended, or had the time or ability to do so,” said Eliason, speaking to a series emails he sent fellow councillors last year expressing his interest in attending. “I said early on that I wasn’t able to attend the other two, but I was interested in attending this one and I’d be looking for support.” Eliason said Cannon replied to his emails, saying she would like to attend. And, Eliason continued, Coun. Marg Kentel also recently expressed interest. Neither council nor staff knew if Mayor Nancy Cooper, who was absent, wished to attend. Cooper did state two weeks prior at council’s Jan. 13 meeting that she wouldn’t be attending this year’s Southern Interior Local Government Association Conference (also budgeted for), but said nothing about FCM. With four potential candidates

in the running for the Niagara Falls event, Couns. Alan Harrison and Ken Jamieson offered their support for two to attend, but said they weren’t interested in picking. With pressure for a decision from city administrator Carl Bannister, Coun. Denise Reimer, as acting deputy mayor, suggested that Eliason and Cannon go. “I know Couns. Eliason and Cannon were ahead of the game and trying to get the information out to us, and it was important for them to want to be participants… if I have to make a decision, I will base it on that reason,” said Reimer. At the Jan. 13 meeting, while debating who should attend another conference not specifically budgeted for, councillors suggested a discussion is needed to establish personal professional development goals with an allotted amount each councillor would be allowed to spend per year.

Diagnosed with severe deterioration in both of my hip joints, I needed a full double hip replacement. The new hips were remarkably pain free right from the first day I stood on them.

Spring construction planned for Gaming Centre in Salmon Arm By Martha Wickett

MArKet News stAff

A gaming centre planned for Salmon Arm has been delayed but is still in the works. Although construction was initially set to begin in October 2013, lease arrangements have pushed back the expected construction date to April of this year. The Adams Lake band is leasing the property – the former home of the GM dealership at 10th Street SW and the Trans-Canada Highway – to the Berezan Group, which will build and operate the

26,000-sq.ft. Chances Salmon Arm. Adams Lake Band Chief Nelson Leon explains that the lease term is changing, so the band must hold a referendum to accommodate the change. “We’re happy to say we have entered into an agreement to sign a lease, pending a referendum, from annual to prepaid.” He said the initial plan was for a 49-year lease paid as an annual rent. The Berezan Group has since requested a 49-year prepaid lease, to which the band council agreed. An information meet-

ing for band members will be held on March 12 in Chase as well as in Vancouver for band members there. The referendum vote will take place on March 13. “They’re targeting for construction to start in April,” Leon said, adding that, although an annual rent was the council’s preferred option, the new term would hold advantages for both the band and the developer. “For the band, a prepaid lease allows us an influx of revenue so we could capitalize major projects – the resources are available to the band immediately.”

Premium Flowers for your Valentine

If there’s one day in the year when even the most reticent among us have to express a bit of tenderness, it is definitely Valentine’s Day. But nobody says we have to go over the top. What if we just forgot about extravagance this year and went for pure relaxation? If you’re not sure how to woo her the way she’d like, just let the five senses be the guide. First step: eyesight To start the day off on the right foot, there’s nothing like a love letter or little message. It doesn’t matter if it is given in person, left in clear view on the kitchen table, or sent by e-mail. What it says is all that counts. Second step: smell Even if you think it’s a cliché, don’t hesitate to offer a bouquet to your loved one. Be sure to choose flowers that will bewitch her with their fragrance. Third step: hearing Set the tone for the evening by putting on some soft, romantic tunes. Let your loved one know how much you love her. After all, who could get tired of hearing that? Fourth step: taste Now comes the moment to enjoy some special treats, starting with a bottle of champagne. Accompany this divine nectar with creamy chocolates or even some delicious red velvet cupcakes, purchased at your favourite bakery or made with love at home. Fifth step: touch To finish the evening on the perfect note, think silky lingerie, massage and essential oils, or a romantic bath for two. Sensual pleasures, guaranteed!

Healthy eating at work living WEll Does your workplace promote healthy eating? Most of us have good intentions when it comes to eating well, but knowing what a healthy choice is doesn’t always translate into making a healthy choice. This can be especially true in the workplace where many of us spend a lot of time and where healthy options may be limited. For many of us, the struggle to eat healthy at work is not simply due to a lack of will power. Research shows that our “food environment” strongly influences the food choices that we make. Think about the choices available to you

in your workplace: What is stocked in the vending machines down the hallway? Does the cafeteria sell healthy choices? Are the healthy choices more expensive? Are the muffins served at meetings jumbo-sized? Is there an endless supply of candy, cookies, cakes, and pastries on the lunch room table? We are more likely to eat foods that are easily accessible; even if we know those foods may not be the best choice. The food environment often overrides will power. When healthy choices are accessible, attractively displayed, comparatively priced and highly visible, it’s a lot easier to make a better food choice. Here are some simple things you can do to help create a healthier food environment in your workplace: In the coffee room: Bring in a box of or-

anges instead of a box of donuts. Treat your co-workers to a bowl of apples or seasonal fruit. At potlucks: Encourage people to bring colorful vegetable and fruit choices or vegetarian dishes using beans or lentils. Position the healthier options at the front of the table. At meetings: Not all meetings require food. If a meeting is shorter than 2 hours or occurs during a nonmeal time, ask yourself if providing food is really necessary. If providing food, remember that fruit and vegetable trays make great healthy snacks. Make these easily accessible by placing the trays in the center of meeting tables. If serving baked goods, provide smaller sized portions and cut muffins in half. Serve these items away from seated partici-

pants. For an all-day conference, fruit skewers and low-fat yogurt are tasty picks for the afternoon break. The Eat Smart Meet Smart resource can help you choose healthier food for meetings and events. See http:// healthyeating/pdf/eatsmart-meet-smart.pdf . In vending machines: Ask your vending machine operator to stock healthier choices. Check the brand name food list for healthier options to stock in vending machines. See https://bnfl. . For more information about healthy workplaces: articles/get-goinghealthy-workplace. -The author, Linda Boyd, is a Community Nutritionist with Interior Health

The edge of the seat ending was a 4-3 overtime victory for Chase. In the first, Connor Venne opened scoring on the power play before the Eagles got two on the power play. Then Nic Fidanza potted one to even things up. The second period was all Sicamous as they got one to take the lead. With less then three minutes left in the third, Hodges scored to tie things up. Then the four-on-four sudden death overtime arrived and 21 seconds in, Trevor Okino let a wicked blast go. It found its way through traffic and into the

Mining in the Shuswap SHUSWAP PASSION Jim Cooperman With all the attention in British Columbia currently directed to mining, one might wonder if there will be renewed interest in mineral exploration here in the Shuswap. Up until now, the Shuswap has mostly been considered an area lacking in significant mineralization and certainly there has only been a few successful mining operations to date, including the Samatosum Mine near Adams Lake – as described in the previous column, and the gypsum mine above Falkland. However, there has been no shortage of mining projects and many of these ventures provide some intriguing stories. It is often said that most mining ventures are more about penny stock promotion than actual serious mining potential, and that was likely the case for the Annis Mine in the Larch Hills. One can only wonder how many life savings were lost as in 1967, 400 to 500 interested local residents, many of them one of the 364 shareholders, attended a meeting at the site of the mine property to hear glowing accounts of how their money had been wisely invested to develop the lead-zinc mine. Apparently, the 48-metre long abandoned tunnel is still there. The most recent survey, done in 1995, showed miniscule amounts of silver, lead and zinc, that was hardly enough to warrant further interest. Early settlers in and near Enderby likely thought they would soon have a good source of steady income, when

the news came out in 1904 about the discovery of coal by George Weir at the base of a hill seven miles north of the town. The Enderby Coal Syndicate was formed, shares were sold and work began on an initial tunnel. The workings did uncover a 16-foot long seam of coal, but with continued digging all they could find was clay. Despite more tunneling and drilling, the mother lode eluded them and by 1914, the company was dissolved. One of the original syndicate members, S.F. Tolmie still owned more than 30,000 worthless shares, when he became B.C.’s premier in 1930. Many Lumby residents once owned shares in the nearby mine on Saddle Mountain, where minerals were first discovered by a local teacher in the early 1900s. Perhaps some of them may have made a few profits as the mine did produce, between 1968 and 1974, many tons of ore that produced more than 1.5 million grams of silver and 1214 grams of gold along with some copper, lead and zinc. Prospects were still optimistic in 2001, when Quinto Technology Inc. had infrastructure in place to process mica, silica, graphite and pyrite gold. Yet any dreams of future profits were soon dashed, as in 2009 reclamation began at the then abandoned site and, when it was completed in 2011, the company received an industrial award for its successful cleanup, tailings pond backfilling and re-vegetation project. I even once profited from work on a mining scheme, when I was employed to help construct a nearby timber-framed unloading ramp for ore removed from the Mosquito King exploration trenches high up in the Adams Plateau. The remains of a large, timbered staff quarters are likely

still near there, along with hundreds of core samples. Exploration began as early as 1927 and, in 1972, tons of ore was sent to Trail that produced lead and zinc and small amounts of silver and gold, but never enough to make the project worthwhile. Other projects on the plateau included the King Tut, Spar and Lucky Coon sulphide deposits, none of which were lucky. During photographic trips by airplane to the

exploration efforts that began as early as 1905, which included shafts being dug and drilling, not enough lead, zinc, copper, silver or gold has ever been found to justify full-fledged mining. For those with money to burn, the property is for sale. Perhaps the only mining exploration project currently underway in the Shuswap that may one day become a real mine, is at the Ruddock Creek zinc deposit located in the upper Oliver Creek drainage, high above Tum Tum “The Enderby Lake.

Rotary Update Daybreak Rotary Club

Salmon Arm Rotary Clubs Launch Crocus Campaign to Help End Polio Starting this February, Salmon Arm’s three Rotary clubs will launch the first annual Rotary Crocus Campaign. Local Rotarian Penny Brown says, “The campaign has two objectives; to raise awareness about polio and the world-wide effort to eradicate it; and to raise funds to vaccinate children in a number of targeted developing countries.” Until 2018, every US dollar committed to the World Health Organization and UNICEF, in direct support for polio immunization, by over 1.2 million Rotarians in over 130 countries will be matched 2-to-1 by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. “We are participating in part of an extraordinary world-wide effort,” says Brown, “and all the proceeds from the crocus sales will go to Rotary’s ‘End Polio Now’ campaign. “There is good news polio cases are down 99% worldwide from 350,000 cases in 1988 to 223 cases-an all time low in 2012,” Brown cautions, “that although the world is very close to eradicating polio, the work is still not finished. Polio kills and paralyses young children and spreads like a wind-driven August forest fire. There is no cure for polio but it can be easily prevented through immunization.” In the early 20th century, polio was one of the most feared diseases in industrialized countries,

Effective vaccines were introduced in the 1950’s and 1960’s bringing polio under control in industrialized countries. Polio persisted, though, in many developing countries. During the 1970’s routine immunization was introduced in many developing countries as part of an international immunization program. In 1988, when the “Global Polio Eradication Initiative” began, polio paralyzed more than 1000 children worldwide every day. Since then, 2.5 billion children have been immunized against polio because of the cooperation of more than 200 countries and 20 million volunteers, backed by an international investment of more than $8 billion US. The story of India, in its fight to eradicate polio, illustrates the great successes achieved. In 2009, one-half the World’s Polio Cases

were in India: today, there are none. India has been polio-free for three years, but the virus, which can persist in soil contaminated with human feces for up to a decade is on its border. With commitment from Rotary, the Indian government, the Global Polio Eradication Initiative, other donor governments and the global community, India launched a comprehensive polio eradication effort and built a robust health infrastructure. An army of 2.3 million vaccinators worked to reach 175 million children with the polio vaccine during national immunization days. India’s success against polio is a significant achievement in global public health and proves that the disease can be eliminated in even the most challenging of circumstances. Today only three countries are polio endemic: Nigeria, Afghanistan and Pakistan. The first four cases of wild poliovirus cases type 1(WPV1) have been reported for 2014. All cases were reported from North Waziristan, Pakistan. Today, North Waziristan is the district with the largest number of children paralyzed by the polio virus in the world. As long as polio still exists in reservoirs like North Waziristan, the world will always be at risk of outbreaks. This massive effort of Rotary and its partners cannot be accomplished alone. Only one other human

disease, smallpox, has ever been eradicated. With your help by supporting the Crocus Campaign and learning more about the extraordinary world-wide effort, we can make history today by ending polio. The disease Polio (poliomyelitis) is a highly infectious disease caused by a virus. It invades the nervous system and can cause irreversible paralysis in a matter of hours. Who is at risk? Polio can strike at any age, but it mainly affects children under five years old. Transmission Polio is spread through personto-person contact. When a child is infected with wild poliovirus, the virus enters the body through the mouth and multiplies in the intestine. It is then shed into the environment through the faeces where it can spread rapidly through a community, especially in situations of poor hygiene and sanitation. If a sufficient number of children are fully immunized against polio, the virus is unable to find susceptible children to infect, and dies out. There is no cure for polio, only treatment to alleviate the symptoms. Polio can be prevented through immunization. Polio vaccine, given multiple times, almost always protects a child for life.

As Vic says, he has skied around the world and can honestly say he found his experiences in the Larch Hills to be the best. We have terrific tracks, he likes the variety of trees, the snow conditions were wonderful, the sense of community throughout. On our final foray into the Larch Hills with Vic, we joined the Geezers on their outing to the Summit. Spectacular! En route down

BARRY GRAY DEARING 1956 - 2014 Barry Dearing, son, husband, father, friend, coach, basketball official, and dedicated educator passed away January 16th, 2014 in the company of family and friends, after a courageous battle with cancer. Barry was born in 1956, to a family with a long history in the Shuswap. Barry himself spent only four years of his life away from Salmon Arm – to attend university and to teach for one year in Australia. From an early age, Barry was an avid participant in many sports including hockey, baseball, volleyball, basketball, tennis, and golf. After graduating from high school in 1974, Barry attended the University of Victoria to obtain his Bachelor of Education degree, and later, a Master of Education degree. He spent his entire career in the Shuswap as a much-loved teacher and administrator and had recently retired, hoping to explore the golf courses of the world. Instead, he battled cancer with the determination, positive attitude, and humour that he was known for. Barry was also a highly regarded basketball official and served as president of the local referee’s association as well as on the executive for the BCBOA. He was also on the executive for the Shuswap Children’s Association and the Salmon Arm Golf Club. Barry is survived by his wife Nadina, son Kyle, mother Flo, brother Terry, niece Tanya (Jason), and nephew Drew. His father, Lorne, predeceased him in May 2013. A celebration of life was held for Barry on January 26th at South Broadview Elementary School, with Jack Bowers officiating. Tributes were given by son Kyle, close friend Carl Cooper, former student Hugh Bennett, local basketball referee Ken Jamieson, and BCBOA President Tim Heide. Music was provided by Jim Johnston (piano), Jim Howie (trumpet), the Shuswap Brass Quartet, Mary Landers and guest singers, and special guest Greg Sczebel. In memory of Barry, donations can be made to the Barry Dearing Family Foundation (c/o the Shuswap Community Foundation), which is being established to provide funding to disadvantaged elementary-aged youth who could benefit from financial support in athletic or artistic endeavours. The family would like to express their gratitude to the Vernon Cancer Clinic, the 4th floor staff at Shuswap Lake General Hospital, Bowers Funeral Home, and the multitude of family, friends, colleagues, and students who rallied to support Barry and surround him with an abundance of love and dignity in his last months of life. Online condolences may be sent through Barry’s obituary at



ADELINE PEARSON March 10,1922 - January 23, 2014 Adeline passed peacefully to be with God surrounded by the love of family and caregivers at Sunshine Manor Nursing Home in Campbell River, BC where she had resided for 2 years. Adeline was born in Swan River, Manitoba and moved in childhood to Didsbury then Crossfield Alberta where she married and raised three children.   She later moved to Salmon Arm and became head housekeeper at the Shuswap Lake General Hospital and married Hank Pearson who predeceased her by many years. Adeline was an active golfer and a loyal member of the Anglican Church but her driving force was privately helping young people by offering friendship, mentoring, emotional and financial help in a quiet and spontaneous manner. Her family will hold a memorial gathering in Calgary Alberta at a time not yet determined. THOMAS (TOM) NELSON KING March 25th, 1939 - January 29th, 2014

It is with heartfelt sadness that we announce the passing of Tom King on January 29th, 2014 at Hospice House after a hard fought battle with cancer. Tom was born in Alliston, Ontario on March 25th, 1939. He spent his childhood and his twenties in Tottenham, Ontario which is also where he met the “love of his life” Dianna and they were married on August 5th, 1960. They went on to have 4 children before moving to Canoe, B.C. in 1973. After four more moves between B.C. and Ontario they finally decided on Vernon as their place to stay in 1991. Tom loved music and playing the guitar, but nothing came close to the love he had for his family and spending time with his 5 precious grandchildren. Tom will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 53 years; Dianna, his children; April (Brian), Darrell (Carla), Darren and Alison (Dave), his grandchildren; Amanda (Nic), Jesse, Grant, Derek and Chantel, his sisters; Winnifred and Pearl, his brother; Alfred along with numerous extended family members and friends. Tom was preceded in death by his parents; Daniel and Gladys King, his brothers; Dan, Don, Henry, Dave, Jim and John and by his sister; Peggy. The King family would like to extend their appreciation for all the help received from the wonderful care aid workers with Interior Health, the compassion of the doctors and nurses at the Vernon Cancer Clinic and the Kelowna Cancer Clinic, the great service provided by London Drugs Pharmacy, the Handy Dart and for the care received during his brief stay at Hospice House. A special thank you to Dr. Mike Murphy for your regular visits, they meant so much. Cremation preceded a Celebration of Tom’s Life which will be held at Bethel Funeral Chapel on Saturday, February 8th, 2014 at 11:00 A.M. with Reverend Colleen Rempel officiating. A Reception will follow in the Tea Room at Bethel Funeral Chapel. As an expression of sympathy, those who wish to do so may send donations in memory of Tom to the Canadian Cancer Society #104-3402 27th Avenue, Vernon, B.C. V1T 1S1. Funeral arrangements have been made with BETHEL FUNERAL CHAPEL LTD., 5605 27th Street, Vernon, B.C. V1T 8Z5 (250) 542-1187

BARTON, MINA Mom peacefully passed away Sunday, February 2, 2014 at Ponderosa Lodge. Mina was born Oct. 2, 1923 in Vancouver to the late Lorene and Dr. Colton Miles. She was pre-deceased by her husband Art Barton and young son Richie. Mina has two surviving sons, Larry (Judy) of Chase and Ron (Ruth) of Lund, grandchildren, Dylan (Rhonda) and Damien (Nick) and great-grandchildren, Reid and Finnegan, all of Kelowna. Mom met Art at U.B.C. and they were married in 1942 and settled in Kamloops to raise their children.  After leaving Barton, Black and Robertson Insurance they re-located to Chase where they owned and operated Sunshore Golf Course.  Their winters were spent in Phoenix until dad`s passing in 2004. Mom moved to Berwick on the Park at this time.  Mom loved to entertain and socialize. She also enjoyed swimming, golfing, curling and playing bridge. She remained chipper to the end! Our deepest gratitude to Dr. Vagyi, Dr. Brink, Berwick staff, Dr. Chow, 3 west staff at R.I.H., Dr. Howie and 2nd floor staff at Ponderosa. Should friends desire, donations to R.I.H. foundation 311 Columbia Street, Kamloops, B.C. V2C- 2T1 in memory of mom would be appreciated. As per mom`s request, there will be no service. Schoening Funeral Services in care of arrangements.

Shuswap Market News Friday, February 7, 2014 A31

Swimming with B.C.’s best Orchard Park Terrace Eleven swimmers from the Shuswap Swimming Team competed at the Swim BC AAA Provincial Short Course Championships from Jan. 31 to Feb. 3, where they scored well ahead of all other clubs in the region with the exception of Kamloops. Lauren Hemburrow, 13, started the competition off with a bang. She swam the 50-metre butterfly time trial in 30.28 seconds, qualifying her for the Western Canadian Championships (a senior national meet where Olympic team members will race head to head with youngsters from Salmon Arm). Not a lot of 13-year-olds qualify for Westerns. She will join teammates Paige Coutlee, 15, and Bree Cooper, 16, when they travel with coach Jana Montgomery to the competition in New Westminster Feb. 13-16. Lauren came to Salmon Arm from Ontario last summer, along with her coaches, in order to con-

tinue her training under their guidance. She has left behind family and friends at a young age in order to focus on her long-term goal of one day making the Olympic team. “Living with my coaches means it’s all about swimming, 24/7,” says Lauren. “I’m so lucky that my parents supported this move and this great thing I’m trying to accomplish with my life.” The highest scoring swimmer of the meet was superstar Stephen Moore, 11. Stephen won the 50-breast time trial with a time of :37.40. He went on to win three gold, two silver and one bronze medal. Jacob Rambo, 11, was another champion racer. He started the weekend off by winning the 50-fly time trial with a time of :34.69. Jacob won a gold medal in 200 fly, finishing at 2:42.74. He also won four silver medals.

n Lauren Hemburrow, 13, swims the butterfly, qualifying for Western Canadian Championships. Maggie Manning, 13, Shuswap Swimming’s PARA-swimming genius won four medals in her category. She took silver in 100-back, and a bronze in 50, 100 and 200 free. A determined young athlete, Maggie has her mind set on making the Canadian Paralympic Swimming Team for the 2016 Olympic & Paralympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Bree Cooper, 16, won three bronze medals for her races in 50 fly, 100 free and 50 free. She now swims two lengths of the pool in 26.87 seconds!

Chantel Jeffrey, 12, brought home many points in the meet. On the younger half of the 12-13 age group, she found herself up against some big, strong, fast older girls, but Chantel didn’t back down. She managed a 4th place finish in 200 fly (1st among 12 year olds) with an incredible time of 2:34.88. Lauren GridleyHaack, 10, Paige Coutlee, 15, Thomas Flahr, 15, Bryce Molder, 15, and Josh Rota, 17, rounded out the Shuswap swimmers contributing to the team’s success at provincials.
