Train strikes truck near Sicamous By Lachlan Labere

market news staff

Authorities are investigating the circumstances behind a collision involving a train and a pick-up truck Tuesday that resulted in a 27-year-old Armstrong man being airlifted to hospital. Sicamous RCMP received word of the incident on March 18 at approximately 2:40 p.m. Sgt. Dave Dubnyk said investigating officers found a Dodge pickup sitting partially on the railroad tracks near Solsqua Road, about eight kilometres east of Sicamous. The train had hit the truck, its bed crumpled by the impact. “The early stages of the investigation indicate the truck was initially travelling eastbound on

Highway #1 when it left the roadway and became lodged on the tracks,” said Dubnyk. “The train crew was able to apply the brakes, thereby slowing it down considerably prior to the impact.” Canadian Pacific spokesperson Salem Woodrow said the train crew sounded the horn to alert the truck’s driver, but was unable to stop the train in time, adding it can take up to mile or more for a train to stop. RCMP, CP Rail police, BC Ambulance paramedics and the Eagle Valley Rescue Society arrived quickly on the scene and the driver, the truck’s only occupant, was airlifted to hospital in Kamloops with undetermined injuries. Woodrow says CP’s police services continue to investigate the incident.

Literacy programs facing cutbacks By Lachlan Labere

MARKET NEWS STAff

Actions may speak louder than words when it comes to convincing the province to continue its support of local literacy programming. Coun. Alan Harrison had no problem acquiring the support of his peers on Salmon Arm council, to have the city write a letter to Shuswap MLA Greg Kyllo advocating for the province’s ongoing support of the Literacy Alliance of the Shuswap (LASS). The letter will include an invitation to the MLA to visit some of the sites where LASS’s programming is making a difference among young readers. “I would invite him personally to my school, but there’s many other places he can go to so that we can show him the value of the program,” said Harrison, commenting both as a councillor and school principal at Hillcrest Elementary. The invitation to Kyllo comes in response to a Feb. 18 letter by the MLA to the city, in which he responds to concerns of city council regarding future funding for LASS. The program currently relies on annual funding through the Ministry of Education, redistributed through Decoda Literacy Solutions. In January, Decoda learned it would only be receiving $1 million, as opposed to the $2.5

million required to fund the 102 literacy co-ordinator positions in the province. Kyllo notes in his letter how the B.C. government is reviewing priorities and budgets in all ministries, and is “increasingly constrained in our ability to provide sustained funding for initiatives we have supported in the past. “We appreciate your need to confirm funding as soon as possible to plan for the upcoming year, and we will be finalizing our decision as soon as possible,”

talk to the value of this, of the early literacy program that’s being run. It’s high-profile and it’s being done cheaply.” Harrison then referred to another letter to the city from the B.C. government, seeking support for Sing Me A Song B.C., a program offering money to come up with a song for the country’s 150th birthday in 2017. “I don’t know if these ministries talk to one another, but to me, starting up a new program or a new competition about making a Sing a Song B.C. program, I

“I’m not sure what else we can do except to make sure that people in our community talk to the value of this, of the early literacy program that’s being run.” -Alan Harrison

writes Kyllo. Harrison said the MLA’s letter wasn’t very encouraging. “I think, as a council and as a community, we need to recognize that for the very small amount of funding that LASS received and (co-ordinator) Jennifer Findlay manages, the return on that money is huge, in my perspective as an educator,” said Harrison. “I’m not sure what else we can do except to make sure that people in our community

don’t know how much that costs, but I would rather see that money go to this one,” he said. Findlay has encouraged Shuswap residents to show their support for LASS by writing Kyllo at greg.kyllo.mla@leg. bc.ca, or in hard copy to Greg Kyllo, MLA, East Annex, Parliament Buildings, Victoria, B.C. V8V 1X4, with a copy to Education Minister Peter Fassbender at educ.minister@gov. bc.ca or PO Box 9045, Stn Prov. Govt., Victoria, B.C., V8W 9E2.

Ordinary guys, extraordinary band Meet Stony Plain’s MonkeyJunk, now hitting on All Frequencies and returning to the Salmon Arm Roots and Blues Festival this summer. If you meet Steve Marriner, Tony Diteodoro or Matt Sobb on the street, you’ll be chatting to three ordinary guys — the sort of folk who’ll stand you a beer at a local pub, or give you a cigarette if they have one. “But between them, they make extraordinary music — a tough-assed hybrid of blues, rock and roll and jam-band grooves that doesn’t quit,” says Roots and Blues marketing director Scott Crocker.  “This is music that makes you

want to dance, but has real substance.” With the late September release of All Frequencies, their second album for Stony Plain Records, the door is opening for the next stage of what is already a remarkably successful career. This year All Frequencies hit the mark at the Maple Blues Awards, with the band picking up five awards (on six nominations) including Entertainer of the Year, Electric Act of the Year, Recording of the Year, Songwriter(s) of the Year and Harmonica Player of the Year for Steve Marriner. Now nominated for what would be a second Juno for Best Blues

Album of the Year (the first came in 2012), the band remains humbled by all of the accolades, though as Marriner says, the band has stopped worrying about “…whether what we were doing was ‘bluesy’ enough. We know that whenever — and wherever — the band’s playing the people dig it.   “We’re growing and we’re exploring. Every era of the blues has seen influential artists change the soundscape of the music and explore different musical possibilities. It’s our job to try to follow in their footsteps.” Now in its 22nd year, the Salmon Arm Roots and Blues Festival remains one of the best in

10-year contract unreasonable The rhetoric surrounding the B.C. public education system and contract negotiations with the B.C. Teachers Federation has been flying high, both in amount and stink level. Claiming they have the best interests of B.C. schoolchildren at heart, the provincial Liberal government is single-mindedly driving to ink a 10-year labour contract with the province’s teachers. The nuts and bolts of their plan are outlined in a document entitled: Working Together for Students. The plan has as its main goal longterm stability in education. At least that is what it says on the cover. Very commendable. However, the document identifies the biggest problem with the public school system as, “The ongoing cycle of teacher labour unrest in schools.” As if only the teachers were to blame in this mess. But 10 years is a long time. How many people, other than politicians want to be locked into a contract for 10 years? We have trouble with three-year cellphone contracts, never mind 10 years. What if there is another financial meltdown? What happens if the natural gas industry goes belly up? What happens if the courts uphold the BCTF’s right to negotiate class size and composition? Why not aim for a short-term contract to work out a set of guidelines that focuses on class size and composition that puts the students first, gives teachers the room they need to do their very best, and is mindful that the government purse strings must open for many public servants. In this way both parties are putting their money where their mouth is. -Penticton Western News

OpiniOn

Lured by quality of a bygone era

You know you’re getting old when fishing lures that you used when you were a kid are now considered collectable antiques. The other day I found myself admiring some of the old plugs and lures that I have on display in a china cabinet in my living room. I remember, as a kid, rifling through my father’s tackle box and sort of helping myself to a number of those old wooden plugs. I also remembered all the times that we used to sit out in the boat fishing. I can still hear the sound of water lapping against the hull of the boat. I remember listening and laughing at all my father’s dumb jokes. Life was a lot simpler. When I look at all that old fishing stuff, I cannot help but think just how much fishing tackle has changed over the years. Cane rods have been replaced by ultra-high modulus graphite rods. Instead of hardware store Pfluegers, I now own hand-crafted, machined aluminum reels that cost more than a good number of the vehicles I have owned.

The GreaT OuTdOOrs James Murray Gone are the wooden plugs with their glass eyes. Gone too are lures with names like Chubb Creek Minnow and flies like the Lady Amhurst and Silver Doctor. We now have Killer Crank Baits, Buzz Bombs and Hawg-busters. When an angler goes fishing now, it’s almost as if they are at war with nature itself. Electronic fish finders and GPS’s (Global Positioning Systems) have turned the sport of fishing into more of a serious business. I have to admit though, I enjoy using my new graphite rod. It is much lighter and easier to cast than the old fibreglass or cane rods. Today’s fluorocarbon lines and leaders are thinner,

stronger and almost invisible to fish in the water. Computer designed lures are effective, if for no other reason than they probably annoy fish into striking, and modern fly-tying materials now give an almost life-like quality to any imitation fly pattern. Maybe it’s just me, but somehow there just doesn’t seem to be enough of the old romantic tradition left in fishing. Catching a bright, shiny rainbow trout on a piece of muti-coloured fluorescent painted plastic with a name like Trout Killer stamped on the side of it just isn’t the same. I guess that’s why I continue to collect the old stuff and use the new high-tech stuff. Including all the lures that I pilfered from my father’s tackle box, I guess I’ve been collecting antique fishing gear for more than 50 years. I’ve managed to put together a fair collection of old lures as well as dozens of steel and cane rods. I like to think that by collecting such artifacts I am, in a way, helping to preserve sport fishing history.

Fishing was a part of my growing up – a part of who I am. Maybe that’s why it annoys me so much when I see ads in the back of Canadian fishing magazines from some big fishing outfit down in Virginia wanting to buy old fishing gear. I just don’t think we should be selling off our history. When I’m going through and handling some of the old piscatory paraphernalia I’ve collected over the years, I cannot help but admire the craftsmanship and attention to detail on some of those old plugs and lures. I am often amazed at the creative lengths to which some earlier anglers went in order to catch a fish – it truly is amazing sometimes what did manage to catch fish. So, I guess some day, when my tired old legs are too weary to get me into some of the lakes and streams that I have fished, I will be able to look back and know that I was part of an era. Not one of plastic, but rather one of craftsmanship, glass eyes and sport fishing history.

James Murray’s review of our dysfunctional relationship with the ecology of our only home, the planet Earth, is timely and much appreciated.  (“Clean up mess on our planet first”, Shuswap Market News, March 7, 2014.) Unfortunately, despite his otherwise comprehensive summary, James has misconstrued  an important point in the reports he is quoting – specifically, the two additional planets point. Over two decades ago, UBC’s William Rees developed the concept and methods for calculating our individual and cultural ‘ecological footprint.’  Based on such variables as rates of  resource extraction and energy use; food production and consumption;  and modes and extent of transportation, he concluded that more than two

additional, ‘unspoiled’ Earths would be required if the Earth’s human population was to live at our present lifestyle of rampant consumption and population growth. Rees used this metaphor of the two additionally required Earths as a figure of speech only, as a dramatic means of emphasizing the appalling ‘disconnect’ between ourselves and the realities of the Earth’s finite limits – that is, to highlight just how far from ‘living within our (ecological) means’ we truly are.  He, and other eco-footprint researchers  never intended the ‘two-additional-Earths’ notion, mathematically valid as it is, to promote the utterly impractical objective of seeking-out and exploiting two more Earth-like planets to solve our problems, as James suggests. 

Our “messes” – and their “clean-up” – obviously depend solely on our better behaviour and remedial action right here on this one Earth! James is to be congratulated on his call for “ways to slow down the environmental devastation and general laying to waste of this planet.” This is entirely possible, though it requires fundamental rethinking of our historicallyentrenched economic, political and religious values that inform our flawed relationship to Nature and its ecological processes. Quite right, James – “All we need is the will.” Thos.

Party to celebrate pioneers

Help wanted: Organizers seek ideas and volunteers. All pioneer and present residents of Blind Bay are urged to mark July 18 and 19 on their calendars as the birthday celebrations of the early settlers of that area. Records show 2014 is the 100th anniversary of the opening of the first school and post office in that community. Activities confirmed for the event include a tour of historic sites around the bay, an old-fashioned tea, pub-

lication of a book of Blind Bay pioneers’ memories, displays of memorabilia, art, quilts and photos, golf tournaments and a video based on the history of the Reedman family. Other events planned for the two-day celebration but not yet finalized, are a community picnic, a homecoming dance and horse and wagon rides. The committee is particularly anxious to contact pioneer residents of

Blind Bay. If you are a pioneer of that area, or know someone who is, you are invited to submit their name by email to info@blindbay100. com. The celebration is being planned by a joint committee of the communities surrounding the bay – Cedar Heights, Blind Bay and Shuswap Lake Estates. Each community is organizing at least one event or activity.

Other communities and organizations surrounding Blind Bay are also invited to participate and can do so by contacting the committee by email. Suggestions for other activities are still being sought by the committee, and volunteers are needed to assist with some of the activities. Anyone who is interested in volunteering for this special celebration may send an email to info@blindbay100.

factors. The depth that light can penetrate controls the amount of photosynthesis that can occur. Shade helps cool the water, which fish require, particularly in creeks and rivers. The temperature varies according to the time of year and the depth. During both spring and fall, there is a rapid turnover of the water column as compared to the summer when the temperature can vary from 20 degrees centigrade at the top to just 4 degrees at the bottom. Wind often circulates the water column, which lowers the temperature at the top. While it is important that water-quality monitoring work continues and efforts are made soon to reduce the amount of nutrients entering the lake, attention should also be directed at the biodiversity of the lake. The growing number of concerns from fishers about an increase in the number of lesions and growths seen on trout raise questions about potential problems. Shuswap and Mara lakes do more than just provide drinking water for most of us. They are also a rich ecosystem that is home to countless numbers and types of organisms and we need to ensure that the delicate balance is not disturbed.

Since Shuswap and Mara lakes are the source of drinking water for a large percentage of the region’s population, some residents have referred to the lakes as drinking water reservoirs due to their interest in maintaining high water quality. Yet, calling these lakes reservoirs is misinformed, as most lakes are complex ecosystems, that support a wide diversity of life forms and the biology of the lakes varies according to the season of the year and the variety of natural and manmade inputs. By and large, most of the Shuswap and Mara lakes area is classified as oligotrophic with clear, relatively nutrient-free water. Lakes that contain higher levels of nutrients and thus higher concentrations of algae are called mesotrophic. Salmon Arm and Tappen bays are mesotrophic, due to the slower flushing rate of the water in the bays and to

fish, lake shiners and sculpins. Although the majority of the lake shoreline is rocky, the study found an abundant growth of aquatic plants in the sheltered bays, which provide food, oxygen and habitat structure for other organisms. Included in the list were various forms of pondweed, quillwort, arrow grass, horsetail, and bladderwort. Interestingly, there was Eurasian water milfoil back then, which appears to prove that this plant is not a recent invasive species. Key to the continued health of Shuswap and Mara lakes is the rapid flushing of the water, which for most of these lakes is estimated at just one to two years, with slower water movement in the bays. Perhaps the greatest input of nutrients occurs after large salmon runs in the rivers, when many of the decomposing carcasses are washed into the lakes either in the fall or the spring. These nutrients feed growing numbers of algae, which in turn stimulates the growth of plankton. The emerging salmon fry then feast on the plankton and the chain of life continues to circulate. Light, temperature and wind are also key

In-s t o ck L enses

the increasing amount of nutrients entering the lake from the sewage treatment plant, storm water and the Salmon River, where agricultural run-off is a serious problem. Monitoring efforts are also showing an increase of nutrients in the Shuswap River. Sediment core sampling done by the Ministry of Environment has revealed the status of the lake for the past 200 years by the annual deposits of sediment and diatoms. The core shows that Tappen Bay began to deteriorate in the 1930s and that deterioration increased in the 1970s. In 1931, a detailed limnology study was done in Shuswap Lake that identified all the organisms present at different levels. Plankton was most abundant in the sheltered bays and the nets recovered 54 different species, including 13 types of algae. There was a similar level of shoreline invertebrate diversity that included six types of molluscs. The number of bottom organisms varied from 128 to 449 per square yard, including worms, shrimp, mites, larvae, snails and clams. Using gill nets, the researchers found 16 different types of fish, including salmon fry, suckers, trout, white-

Ask The Expert: What to do after surviving a heart attack

(NC) Each year, about 70,000 heart attacks happen in Canada. Fortunately, in more than 90 per cent of cases, the person will survive. Dr. Beth Abramson, Heart and Stroke Foundation spokesperson and author of

Heart Health for Canadians, sheds light on what survivors should keep in mind as they enter this next stage in their life. Q: My husband recently had a heart attack and I’m worried it could happen again. What can we do to help prevent another incident? A: Once you’ve had a heart attack you are at increased risk for another. Which is why it’s even more important to take your medication and make some lifestyle changes. Adopting healthy behaviours can help lower your husband’s risk

and help you make healthy changes at the same time. These include exercising regularly (at least 150 minutes each week), eating a healthy diet (five to 10 servings of vegetables and fruit each day) and reducing stress. Being smoke free is also really important as is limiting alcohol consumption. Take these changes one step at a time. Also, a cardiac rehabilitation program can help your husband recover to the best extent possible and support him to adopt and maintain healthy changes. Re-

habilitation makes survivors feel better and improves their quality of life. Taking advantage of these programs when available is essential because they are shown to improve participants’ health and to lower mortality by as much as 25 per cent. If he has not been sent on to a cardiac rehabilitation program ask your doctor to do so. Thanks to medical developments over the past 60 years, we are making progress and reducing the odds of serious problems in people who suffer a heart

attack. Advances in prevention, surgical procedures and drug therapies have helped make this possible – many of which were supported by research funded by the Heart and Stroke Foundation. Since its inception, the Foundation has committed more than $1.39 billion to heart and stroke research, and helped create the 165,000 survivors of heart disease and stroke who went home to their families last year.

Spread across the lanes

n A tractor-trailer unit blocks both lanes of Highway 1 east of Canoe Wednesday morning after the driver lost control and sideswiped an oncoming eastbound semi before stopping on the shoulder of the eastbound lane. Neither the drivers, out of Winnipeg (westbound) or Kamloops sustained injuries. Slushy, icy conditions contributed to the collision.

Band votes to approve gaming centre plan By Martha Wickett

market news staff

The gaming centre is a go. A March 13 referendum for members of the Adams Lake Indian Band was successful, giving approval to a 49-year prepaid lease for the Berezan Group. The Berezan Group will be building and operating a gaming centre on the former home of the GM dealership at 10th Street SW

and the Trans-Canada Highway. Adams Lake Band Chief Nelson Leon says the lease is set to go and construction is expected to start next month. The referendum was necessary to change the initial plan for a 49-year lease paid as an annual rent to a prepaid lease. “For myself, this is a tremendous boost to the Adams Lake economy, as well as the district of Salmon Arm’s economy,”

Leon said, noting that he contacted Mayor Nancy Cooper to keep her up-to-date when the lease was signed. The Berezan website describes the facility as covering 26,000 square feet and having banquet and conference areas with 100 slot machines and bingo tables. It says the property will also have a VIP lounge and outdoor patio with a live entertainment area.

Buy before March 31, 2014 and $5,000 will be taken off the purchase price

One month after I was diagnosed with colon cancer, the tumours were successfully removed. Unfortunately, during that surgery it was discovered I also had liver cancer and would need to return to the operating room. In nine months, I beat two types of cancer. With gratitude, my parents gave a gift which purchased a new surgical retractor used in liver cancer removal.

Pay parking comes to Hudson lot

Marla Beblow DENTURIST LTD.

■ Complete Dentures ■ Partial Dentures ■ Repairs or Relines ■ Personalized Denture Services

By Lachlan Labere

market news staff

Proposed parking changes around the Salmar Grand include paid parking next to the theatre and a name change for the lot across the street. Reviewing the minutes of the Downtown Parking Commission’s Feb. 18 meeting, Coun. Alan Harrison paid particular attention to an update related to the Hudson and Salmar parking lots. The Hudson lot, commonly referred to as the Salmar parking lot due to its immediate proximity to the theatre, is going to become a paid parking lot. At the same time, the parking lot across the road, currently named after the Legion, will be renamed the Salmar. City engineering and public works director Rob Niewenhuizen noted the lot beside the theatre has always been called the Hudson lot. “Except by the people who work in Salmon Arm,” laughed Harrison. Niewenhuizen said the Salmar Community Association asked that, with the parking changes, the Legion lot be changed in name to the Salmar. The minutes explain free two-hour parking will continue to be available at the future Salmar parking lot. The Hudson lot will be 25 cents an hour throughout the year, with the exception of July and August when parking will be free to accommodate tourists, and during spring and Christmas to facilitate parking for matinees. It will accommodate 18 personalized parking stalls and 19 monthly stalls. Four will be reserved for the theatre, and the remainder used for daily/hourly parking. The parking lot behind the Salmar, which belongs to the community association, will become paid parking, with all revenues going to the city.

WELL This year’s theme is Simply Cook and Enjoy. You may be wondering is the ‘enjoy’ part even possible when eating with young children? The answer is yes. Over the past month I began carefully practising what I preach. The following tips really are key. Ensure the focus for eating together is simply to enjoy each other’s company. So much stress is lifted when I let go of being concerned about how much or what my son will eat. Plan for early dinners. On work nights, if dinner is running late, I find it helpful to offer my son a light predinner snack to prevent him from becoming

Let’s face it, eating with young children can be stressful, especially at dinner time. Even though I know the spilling, throwing food, picky eating, and crankiness are all normal, they are hard to face each evening. Knowing the many benefits that eating together offers my toddler – from learning more vocabulary to accepting new foods – gives me the push to continue making family dinners a priority in my home. Nonetheless, I recently asked myself how we can make our family mealtimes a happier time. And what a better time to be asking then during Nutrition Month.

cause children to eat less and take longer to accept new foods. Enjoy pleasant conversation. We keep the conversation light and involve our toddler. Interestingly, by doing this it has helped decrease the amount of food that is thrown out. Keep distractions at a minimum. At mealtimes we turn off the TV, cell phones, iPads, and put away toys (or hide them out of site, if needed). Expect a mess. We keep cloths handy to catch large spills and wait until the meal is over to pick up food that has been dropped on the floor. Creating happy meal times is worth the effort. These changes have made a huge difference for my family. Give them a try.

Childhood assessments show areas of concern

Children’s Corner Tanja Carlson

I must admit that while I thought I was on top of what my son was doing in kindergarten, I did not realize his teacher was completing surveys on his class to determine “vulnerability.” Since 1999, a tool called the Early Development Instrument (EDI) has been used to monitor childhood development and provide communities and policy makers with the information they need to design effective pro-

grams and policies that will help B.C.’s children and families thrive.  More details on the EDI can be found at http://earlylearning. ubc.ca/edi/ There are five categories of assessment. Analysis of this data assigns a percentage to each category and determines in which areas our children are – that’s right – vulnerable.    These categories are: • Physical health and well being (motor development, energy levels, daily preparedness and washroom independence) • Social competence (co-operation and respect for others, socially appropriate behaviour, self-control, and confidence) • Emotional maturity (demonstrates the ability to help others, have tolerance and empathy)

• Language and cognitive (interested in books, reading, language and math related activities) • Communication skills (communicates needs, understands others in English, participates in storytelling and has interest in the world). The 2013 kindergarten results for this area indicate that we have been doing good work and see improvements in the last two categories. Children in North Okanagan Shuswap

are still showing lower than provincial averages in the first three categories: physical health, social competence and emotional maturity.   Overall our vulnerability rate is 34 per cent compared to the provincial average of 32.5 per cent.   What will the Salmon Arm Early Childhood Committee do with these results?   We will continue to be creative and thrifty about programming we deliver to children ages 0-6 to prepare them for kindergarten readiness,

and will focus on physical, social and emotional skills. What can parents and caregivers do?   Give yourselves a pat on the back for the good work you are doing with your kids, and next time you wonder about what they learn when they get out to play with other kids, remember they are gaining physical well-being, social competence and emotional maturity. -Tanja Carlson works for the Shuswap Children’s Association.

Tractor-trailer turns to ash Not much was left of a tractor-trailer rig following a crash on the Trans-Canada Highway early Tuesday morning. Chase RCMP report that at approximately 2:30 a.m. on March 18, officers responded to a single vehicle collision on Highway #1 at the Squilax-Anglemont Road intersection.  The collision involved a tractor-trailer rig, which had gone off the road to the right and struck a rock face, catching fire.  The driver and a passenger who was in the sleeper unit were able to escape. They were transported to Royal Inland Hospital in Kamloops by ambulance but suffered only minor injuries. Little Shuswap Lake Indian Band Volunteer Fire Department responded to the fire, and the highway was reduced to single-lane alternating traffic for about three hours.  Police say drugs and alcohol didn’t appear to be involved, and the cause is under investigation.

With the release of an independent report into the Chase Volunteer Fire and Rescue Department, Village of Chase council will be taking a close look at the operations in the coming months. The report, which covered areas from staffing levels, recruitment, firefighter training, the fire hall and fire equipment, provided a detailed overview of operations now and goals for the future. Chase Mayor Ron Anderson says such a review had not been completed for many

Consulting, has been well received both by council and the fire department itself. “The fire department saw the review as positive and say they can work with it. The council members are now working to get the best possible outcome for the fire department and the taxpaying citizens.”

Mayor Ron Anderson The report is calling for additional recruitment to maintain a department of 25 to 30 trained firefighters. Currently, Anderson says, the department has about 20 members. He says recruitment is a continual issue, especially in a community with an older de-

mographic and where many of the younger people commute to other areas for employment. “It’s difficult to commit to a volunteer fire department when you are working out of town – the logistics are difficult,” said Anderson. He says the community is trying to find new ways to recruit members and says the village welcomes suggestions. Other recommendations in the report include the retirement of a more than 30-yearold fire engine and imSee Retirement on 22

Minor hockey players recognized More than 100 players, parents and community members attended the Chase Minor Hockey Recognition Ceremony on Tuesday, March 11. Master of ceremonies Greg Gartrell welcomed everyone and congratulated all the teams on another successful season. It was noted that registration is staying fairly even from past years with a lot of interest in the younger divisions. This bodes well for the organization as many rural areas are struggling to put even a few teams on the ice. Chase Minor Hockey iced initiation, novice atom, peewee female, peewee rep, bantam rep, midget female and midget rep this year. The parents and community members who support Chase Minor Hockey are appreciated. Many thanks were given to the community members and businesses of Chase. All teams were introduced, with the coaches

giving a quick synopsis of their season and then presenting awards to their teams. Chase Heat coach Brad Fox spoke to the families and players about “keeping the fun” in minor hockey and it being important at a development age that the players are playing because they enjoy it. The guest speaker of the night was Geoff Smith. Smith spent 10 years in the NHL and his son Dawson is a member of the Chase Atom team. Geoff spoke admirably about Chase Minor Hockey. He said he was amazed at the “hockey spirit” in Chase; praising the coaches in minor hockey and the facility, and pointing out that there is great ice time in Chase, all things that make for a great hockey experience for the kids. Chase Minor Hockey awards handed out included: • Volunteer of the Year – Greg and Renae Gartrell for their tireless efforts coaching and positions on the executive, and always

Retirement of fire engine recommended mediate planning for its replacement. “The new apparatus should be an engine/ tender combination vehicle,” says the report. “The apparatus will fulfill the need for pumping capacity in the industrial, commercial retail areas and recreational and educational facilities also. In addition to the necessary pumping capacity… there is also a need for transporting water to fires that occur in areas that have no piped water supplies with fire hydrants.” Anderson says council is very aware of this need. “We are not trying to shortchange the fire department. We will do what we need to do and I believe we have found a way in the budget to accommodate that.” When it comes to training for firefighters,

Anderson says the department and council continue to look for solutions to accomplish this in a small community, with the most

cost-effective option. While council was unwilling to adopt the recommendations from the review in its entirety, they opted to

pass a motion to ask for additional information and clarification before bringing it back for another look and possible adoption.

Possible options on prostitution laws ately improved, but still two thirds of the prostitutes (20,000) are trafficked from Eastern Europe and developing countries. Police have not seen a decrease in crime in any of these example countries. Despite decriminalization, prostitutes continue to suffer incidents of violence, threats, forcible confinement, theft and refusal to pay for services. Germany’s new leniency encouraged prostitutes from abroad. Germany now harbours 400,000 prostitutes with many “virtual slaves to criminal gangs.” Perrin’s studies of other jurisdictions found the same conclusions. Perrin’s recommendation to reduce prostitution and help prostitutes exit the trade is found in what is com-

Profile of the week

monly referred to as the “Nordic Model” inspired by Sweden’s experience. Barbara Kay, a columnist with the National Post, says: “In 1999, Sweden left decades of decriminalization behind, opting to criminalize the purchasers—the “johns”—and the pimps, but not the prostitutes themselves. Instead, programs to encourage exit from the trade and alleviate poverty took precedence, along with public awareness campaigns targeted at male purchasers and education campaigns for police to illuminate the horrors of human trafficking. Prostitution has diminished and government reports suggest there are almost no foreign women remaining in the trade. In fact, a Swed-

ish judge-led independent inquiry in 2010 found that “the Swedish model has disrupted organized crime, deterred sex act purchasers, changed public attitudes, and cut street-level prostitution in half. Plus it found no evidence that the problem simply moved indoors as some skeptics had speculated.” Now I am only reporting a choice made by other jurisdictions, and some options for parliamentarians to review. I believe seldom is prostitution a career choice for women and therefore, it is important that assistance to broader career choices be part of the overall legislative initiative. -Colin Mayes is the Member of Parliament for Okanagan-Shuswap.

As I stated in my earlier column on prostitution, the Supreme Court of Canada has challenged Canada’s Parliament to legislate definitive direction to the courts. Many think that if government would only regulate the profession, prostitutes will be healthy and safe and the cost to the government for monitoring this business would be to tax it. This is not the answer says a recently released report by the Macdon-

Perrin’s unequivocal recommendation is “Canada’s objective should be to abolish prostitution,” because “its harms are inherent and cannot be regulated away.” In his paper, Perrin refers to legal prostitution experiments in the Netherlands, Germany, New Zealand Australia and the U.S. State of Nevada. All have legalized prostitution but the human trafficking and associated oppression of women has not been lessened by legitimizing the trade.

MEMORIES TO OUR precious “Pearl” Dana Laczkovics/Dellamattia who left us on March 21, 2013. Dana Dear; If we could have a lifetime wish, a dream that would come true, we’d pray to God with all our hearts for yesterday and you.

You left behind our broken hearts and happy memories too...But we never wanted memories we only wanted you. Deep in our hearts you will always stay. Loved and remembered every day. ~~~~Love from Dad, Ma Mare, Jason, Elle-Jay and the future little Victor.

SPORTS Enjoy spring-like skiing TRAIL TALES The garden and the driveway are emerging from beneath their blanket of snow; the bike is beckoning, awaiting (or not!) the annual spring road sweep; the tennis racquets await the emergence of the courts – all indications of a change of seasons. However, spring is also a wonderful time to cross-country ski. The base of snow in the Larch Hills is substantial – we’ll be skiing well into April. As Blaine Carson says in response to queries about trail conditions, “We run out of skiers before we run out of snow!” Diehards like Jim and me have been known to ski as late as May 17 – just to say we did! The Wednesday

n Excellent skiing still to be had at Larch Hills, especially over the hard crust on the clear cuts, as the Wednesday Wenches did on March 12. Wenches had a spectacular ski on March 12. The trick is to go where the track setter has gone that morning – that way you avoid the possible icy conditions from freezing temps at night after melting in the afternoon. Wanting to stay in the sunshine we elected to head out the South Loop, conveniently tracked that morning. Out to Lake View then we decided to ski back over the clear cut – on top of the crust formed over the packed humps of snow. Now there’s a terrific ski! Dipsy-doodling around and over the

humps, picking our way over the clear cut in the warm, brilliant sunshine. Can’t beat that for spring skiing! We were doing classic but skating would be great, too. The AGM for the Larch Hills Nordic Society was held March 11 with a good turnout of LH members. Prime on the agenda was discussion of the necessity for development of a Strategic Plan for the LHNS. That process will commence this spring and the membership will be involved in its development, covering infrastructure, gover-

nance, trails, programs, et al. With 990-plus members and such a large, vibrant operation, it is time to have a strategic plan in place to guide decisions. Stay tuned. Our six Larch Hills racers at the Nationals at Blow Me Down Ski Club in Corner Brook, Newfoundland, are well into their week of races. Results can be found on Zone 4. Very proud of these young athletes! Snowshoeing is still terrific. Amazing the number of enthusiasts this season. Great way to get out in the woods. See you on the trails. Happy spring!

Skating Canada. Skaters from across Canada attended. Skaalid captured a bronze medal in the 500-metre distance, narrowly missing the silver as she caught an edge. She also attained a personal best time in the 500-m in one of the earlier heats. Her second bronze medal came as part of the BC Relay Team,

which raced to a third-place finish.

against clubs throughout B.C. Check out the club either at salmonarmskatingclub.com, or go to their Facebook page.  Spring sessions start March 31. Last week’s Skate-A-Thon was very successful, thanks to the support of community members and businesses. Proceeds will go towards new equipment.
