Who says colour doesn’t call attention to your advertisement?

Mother’s Day was first celebrated in 1908 in the state of West Virginia. Within a few years this special day honouring mothers became popular throughout the world. Children bring crafts or special cards for their mothers from school; others buy flowers, chocolates or take them out for dinner. For some mothers, like Nellie Rasmussen or Cathy Sosnowsky, just the chance to hold their children in their arms and say ‘I love you’ would be more than they could dream of. Both these mothers have lost children in accidents. This year marks the 30th anniversary of the car accident that claimed the lives of Nellie’s and John’s children: Angela, 12; Jennifer, 6; and Jeffrey, 3. Cathy and her husband, Woldy, lost their

son, Alexander, in 1992. He was 17 years old. Mother’s Day brings with it a kind of sadness, but for both mothers, it’s other annual markers that are hardest. “Mother’s Day is tough; their birthdays are tough, and Christmas is tough,” says Nellie. “You start dreading these days.” The accident occurred on December 20th and they were buried on Christmas Eve. Two of the children’s birthdays are in December and one is in January. “December is hell,” she adds, “Some years I’d like to go from November to February.” For Cathy, December is also the most difficult month. “Alex was 17 for three days. He was born on December 9th (1975) and he died on December 12 (1992). It’s hard to say which is worse for me.” Alex died from a fall. He and a friend climbed a tennis bubble (a plastic covering on a tennis court) and the roof collapsed. It happened about 11 p.m.; by midnight, he was dead. Nellie’s family’s car accident happened near Armstrong late in the afternoon. Just a few weeks before that, she had John had bought a yarn and craft store on Hudson Street. “Police came to the store about quarter to five with two of my nieces. It was horrible.” Both Nellie and Cathy belong to The Salmon Arm Chapter of Compassionate Friends, a support group for grieving parents. Cathy smiles a little when she talks about the reaction she has from people when they find out she has been going for so many years. For some, she says, it’s reassuring to know that people can survive even with this kind of pain; for others, it’s not

reassuring at all. “It frightens them at first to see someone still needing to come

to a meeting (after 20 years). I don’t expect to get better, it still hurts. I’m not deep into grief like I was, but it’s still there. Someone once described it like a wound that has healed but the scar is still there.” Going to the meetings, they explain, is like getting ‘permission to say how they feel’ with people who understand. Both remember those early days, wondering a little, how they made it through the pain. For Nellie, the months following the accident are a total blur: “I don’t have a memory of that first year–I was 36–but you still have to go on for your other children, your husband and yourself.” Cathy was an English teacher at Langara College in Vancouver at the time. She found solace in writing. [She has published two books: Holding On - Poems for Alex, and Snapshots: A Story of Love, Loss, and Life.] “I taught English for years so poetry was rattling around in my head. When he died, two lines of poetry came into my head, I had to get out of bed and write them down. Grief is isolating and I had a retreat from the world.” Nellie and Cathy drew comfort from

friends&neighbours by Leah Blain

their faith in God. “I turned to God begging, ‘Please don’t let me be bitter–Alex was such a gift,’” says Cathy. “I’ve always gone to church and I had a lot of people praying for me. I never blamed God. That’s not to say I never asked ‘Why?’ We all do,” says Nellie. A profound isolation is an aspect of a mother’s grieving. Partly it came from the pain, and partly from other people’s reactions. “People would turn and walk the other way,” says Nellie. “You know it’s because they don’t know what to say; it’s an isolating feeling.” Cathy lost friends over this as well. Some friends, she explains, were too uncomfortable being around someone who was in so much pain. But they say for anyone who doesn’t know what to say, simple heartfelt words of sympathy work very well. They recall some of things people said that stuck with them. Cathy: “I can’t believe it.” Nellie: “I’m sorry – so, so, sorry.” Cathy: “Or they would ask, ‘How are you?’ and mean it.” Nellie: “You don’t have to say anything, just give that person a hug.” They smile a little

as they talk of the personalities of their children. “Angela was very musical. She loved her brothers and sisters for sure. She wanted to be a teacher and she would have been a good one. Jennifer took music lessons and skated. She was a little mischievous. Jeffrey was only 3, his birthday was the 4th of December. He was a cute little guy.” “Alex was clever, playful, a kayaker and artistic,” says Cathy. “His kayak teacher said he’d be in the Olympics. When I think of him when I’m half asleep, I think of him as a little boy.” At the next meeting of Compassionate Friends on May 13th, parents will bring pictures of their children and a flower. They will exchange flowers as a kind of living gift of remembrance of the dead children. While Mother’s Day brings with it a certain sadness to mothers who have lost children, they encourage others to appreciate the precious gift they have in their children who are still with them. “Don’t take them for granted,” says Nellie, “give them an extra hug that day.” Pictured from left to right: Alex Sosnowsky, Angela, Jeffrey, and Jennifer Rasmussen.

Sea buckthorn

This herb is getting a lot of attention these days. It is also known as Hippophae rhamnoides. It grows in the Himalayas and in Canada as well. You might have heard about it on the Dr. Oz show as a super fruit. Russian cosmonaut used it to protect themselves from cosmic radiations. Almost all the parts of the plant are useful. The fruits/berries can be used to make juice which is very rich in vitamin C, loaded with antioxidants; and it also has vitamin E and proteins. This fruit is very bitter and will taste better if it is combined with apple juice or your other favourite juice. The leaves are rich in Omega 3, 6, 9 and proteins. It also has potassium, magnesium, iron, beta carotene and some of the vitamins B. (These are only some which I am mentioning, but it is indeed loaded with lots of other nutrients as well.) Traditionally, berries were used for preventing infections, improving sight and inhibiting sclerosis. The flowers and fruits of this herb are used for treating arthritis gastrointestinal ulcers and gout. Leaves are used as source of vitamins, flavones, amino acids, fatty acids, minerals, and nutrition; it helps in improving blood pressure and lipid levels. The antioxidant properties help in removing free radicles and so now it is being researched for its benefits for cancer. Topically, berries or seed oil are used as sunscreen, for healing minor wounds and also for protection against radiation. In cosmetics, this herb is promoted as anti-aging. This is just some general information on this herb; for details, it is best to consult a natural health care provider. The good news is that this plant can withstand temperatures of -40 to 40º centigrade. So, it’s a great plant to have in your back yard. Some researchers have called it the ‘wonder plant.’ Readers with enquiries may contact Kosha Vaidya via email at koshahealing@gmail.com.

Meditation for heart disease

I recently had a discussion in my office with a patient who has been diagnosed with heart disease and was concerned about the number of medications she had been prescribed. She asked if there were any alternatives and lifestyle changes she could add to this standard regime of drugs she had been prescribed. While I recommended she speak with her pharmacist and MD about the specifics related to the drugs, I also told her there were a few safe alternatives she could add to her routine to improve her health. In addition to the obvious lifestyle changes such as increasing her exercise, eating less processed food, and adding Omega 3 fish oils to reduce inflammation, I also recommended she learn to meditate. When it comes to challenges such as heart disease, people often focus on the obvious risk factors such as smoking, exercise and diet. However, less attention is paid to stress management and mental health. Whether a person is experiencing spinal symptoms, cancer, or heart disease, one of my main goals in practice with every patient is to relay the impact emotional stress has on ALL aspects of health. This connection has been confirmed in another randomized controlled trial in 2012 that assessed the effects of transcendental meditation (TM) on the health outcomes of patients with coronary heart disease. After following 200 people for 5 years, the group practicing TM had a 48% reduction in the rates of stroke, heart attacks and death, and a 24% reduction in secondary problems such as hospitalization and blood pressure. This is just one example showing real improvements in health through

meditation and stress reduction. So, whether a person has been diagnosed with a disease, or simply for improved overall health and well-being, it is always important to reduce emotional stress. Another healthy practice to include in your wellness lifestyle is regular chiropractic spinal adjustments. Emotional stress is one of the main causes of spinal subluxations and nervous system interference. Your nervous system controls EVERY cell, organ, and tissue in the body. Removing stress from your central nervous system allows your body to function at its best; we can then begin traveling down the road to recovery, rather than sickness and disease. Every human being is traveling a road that connects health and vitality on one end, and death and disease on the other – where you end up in this spectrum depends on your lifestyle choices. The actions you take to control your intake of chemical, physical and emotional stress will depict the outcome of your health. No matter where a person is situated along this road, lifestyle choices determine which direction he/she is heading. Begin taking control of your health through “self-care.” Meditation, yoga/Pilates, proper nutrition, acupuncture, physio therapy, massage therapy and of course regularly scheduled chiropractic adjustments are all excellent modalities that should be incorporated into all of our lives. It takes years to lose your health and requires work and lifestyle changes to regain it; and we can help. Dr. Warren is a chiropractor at Harbourfront Family Chiropractic and may be reached at (250) 8030224.

TWO CHURCHES SHARE A BUILDING AND SHARE A GARAGE SALE When attendance dwindled in St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church in Salmon Arm and the same happened to Mountain View Baptist Church, they decided to share a church building. It is next to the bowling alley and across the highway from the RCMP detachment. It has easy access from the highway by taking the 20 St. turnoff. On Sundays the Baptists have a service at 9 a.m. followed by coffee, and the Presbyterians have theirs at 11, followed by coffee. Tomorrow, Saturday May 3, the two churches will hold a combined garage sale from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. with all proceeds going to maintenance of the building they both share. Anyone can come with a full trunk, pay $10, and sell items from their vehicle. Look for garage sale signs along the highway. INEXPENSIVE TELUS MOBILITY PLAN If your contract with Telus mobility is ending, or if you plan to get a new Telus cell phone, here’s how to get an inexpensive monthly plan. Go to http://home.mytelus. com. On the right, under Telus Products & Services, click on Mobility. On the left, click on Rate Plans. Scroll down to Telus Lite Plans and Telus Voice Plans. You can see one for $35 for 150 local minutes and another is $50 for 500 nationwide minutes. They include unlimited text messaging, three voice mails, and call display. Some have unlimited nationwide family calling. To call Telus Mobility about changing your plan, press (star)*611 from your cell phone, or 1-866-558-2273 on your land line. You can also get a cheap plan from PC Telecom (President’s Choice, through Superstore) that has a plan for $25 per month that includes 150 local minutes, unlimited text, and voicemail/call display. GET RID OF STINK BUGS NATURALLY A great way to get rid of stink bugs is with a mixture of lemon juice and vinegar. Mix one ounce of juice and half an ounce of vinegar in an eight-ounce plastic spray bottle and fill the rest with water. Shake it and spray the juice directly on the stink bugs, counter, windows, walls, and even the trees surrounding your home if needed. Or: use a garlic spray: Mix two cups of water with four tsp of garlic powder in a spray bottle. Spray this solution onto plant leaves, windowsills, and other areas stink bugs frequent. It only repels stink bugs instead of killing them. Or: spray them with soapy water, 32 ounces with 3/4 cup of mild dish soap. Spray this solution directly onto stink bugs or in areas where they gather. Soap kills them by breaking down their protective exterior and dehydrating them. Another way is to use a strong scented hairspray. It’s good for killing bugs such as wasps, spiders, ants, flies, and even stink bugs. Be sure to shoot them directly up close and personal. Once you spray the stink bugs they will drop to the ground. Repeat the spray one more time, and then get rid of them by flushing down the toilet, or putting them in a plastic bag tied tightly, and out to the garbage.

CANCER DIAGNOSIS PATIENTS CAN HAVE MORE THAN MEDICAL HELP IN KELOWNA Scientific studies have shown that the mind and body are inseparable. Healing takes place faster if the immune system functions at its best, and it does so with better support of the body, mind and spirit. The program is called Integrative Cancer Care, InspireHealth. It provides a whole-person approach to care, adding to the most common treatment for cancer which is surgery, chemotherapy and radiation. It includes fitness, nutrition, meditation, yoga, visualization, etc., etc. InspireHealth is a not-for-profit society founded in 1997. It is funded by private donors and foundations, corporate partners and, in part, by the Government of B.C. It is located in Vancouver, Victoria, Kelowna and online. It starts with a fireside chat information session that is free. Visit www.inspirehealth.ca/fireside-chat for the schedule. InspireHealth has three annual membership options: Centre Membership: $450, Connect Membership: $350, or Online Membership: $225. This information was given to me by a Salmon Arm friend who has recently joined and is most impressed. She gave me a few brochures. I have three left and will carry them in my purse. Ask me for one if cancer has recently touched your life. For more information or to make a donation, go to www.inspirehealth.ca of call tollfree 1-800-734-7125.

BIKES WILL FILL PICCADILLY MALL The Lone Wolf Motorcycle Riders will have their annual Show & Shine over three days, May 2 to 4. They are very proud of their bikes, and happy to belong to a club that rides for fun. They are no longer lone wolves. The event is held to create awareness of motorcycle safety.

If festival-organizers choose*, they may allow attendees to roam festival grounds while enjoying a cold one, or even mixed spirits such as gin and tonic. It’s one of many changes being implemented to update the province’s old liquor laws so they reflect modern society. *The Salmon Arm Roots and Blues Festival organizers have chosen to maintain existing beverage garden areas, keeping alcholic consumption contained to two designated areas on the grounds. Sports and entertainment venues are now permitted to sell booze to all patrons, regardless of where they are seated. NO CMHC INSURANCE FOR SECOND HOMES The Canadian Mortgage and Housing Corporation announced that as of May 30, 2014 it will offer no insurance on Canadians seeking to purchase a second property. Also, it will no longer insure purchases by self-employed workers without third party income validation.

ORGANIC MARKET IS OPEN EVERY WEDNESDAY Wild Flight Farm of Mara will have its all-organic market in Salmon Arm every Wednesday now that the winter season is over. It is held from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. at the parking lot of Deo Lutheran Church, 1801 30th st. NE, not far from McDonald’s and the Sullivan campus of SASS. Many other organic vendors are there to sell their products, and they are listed on the market’s e-newsletter that is sent two days before the market. To receive the newsletter, request it at hermann@wildflightfarm.ca. Organic vendors on April 30 besides Wild Flight Farm were Bastion Ranch selling meat, Happy Days Organic Goat Cheese, The Healthy Chocolate Company, Dolan’s Home Delivery, D’s Healthy Treats, and Notch Hill Organics selling bedding plants. Wild Flight Farm supplies organic produce on order. On the weekend, staff harvested 300 bunches of green garlic for Monday’s order. The tender young plants are pulled before they start to form bulbs, and are bunched like green onions. EYEBROW SURGERY IS NOW A TREND Pencil-thin eyebrows were the rage many years ago. Now some of the women are having hairs transplanted from their head to their eyebrows to make them look more natural, and fuller. They will have to trim them regularly, just as men trim their moustache. A transplant involves artistically designing the new eyebrow shape and then filling it in with single hair grafts taken from hair on the head—a painstaking procedure that can take up to six hours. The results are permanent and most women are back to their normal lives within 48 hours. UNCLAIMED MONEY IN CANADIAN BANKS When there has been no owner activity in relation to a bank balance for a period of 10 years, and the owner cannot be contacted by the institution holding it, the balance is turned over to the Bank of Canada, which acts as custodian on behalf of the owner. Balances are transferred to the Bank of Canada once a year, on December 31. The Bank of Canada holds unclaimed balances of less than $1,000 for 30 years, once they have been inactive for 10 years at the financial institutions. Balances of $1,000 or more will be held for 100 years once transferred to the Bank of Canada. If the balance remains unclaimed until the end of the prescribed custody period, the Bank of Canada transfers the funds to the Receiver General for Canada. Over 93 per cent of unclaimed balances are under $1,000. HOW TO SEARCH FOR UNCLAIMED MONEY In 2013, the Bank of Canada paid out $14 million to account holders. The oldest balance dated back to 1900. The internet is full of information on how to find and claim money from dormant bank accounts in Canada. Ask Google to help you. Bring out your family history and check to see if each relative has unclaimed money in Canada. sallys1@telus.net • 250-832-4831

Gaming grants provided

Six community groups in the Shuswap will be sharing $164,000 in community gaming grants supporting families, individuals and building stronger communities in our region. Kindale Developmental Association in Armstrong is receiving $55,000 to support people with developmental disabilities. Another gaming grant for $50,000 will help the Shuswap Family Resource and Referral Society in Salmon Arm, which will use the funds to support families by providing referral services to the community. The B.C. government has also awarded grants to the following organizations: North Okanagan Shuswap Brain Injury Society$35,000; Rotary Club of Salmon Arm-Shuswap - $13,500; Enderby & District Community Resource Centre Society - $8,000; and Sorrento Dropln Society - $3,300. “These grants help our service organizations support our well-be-

ing, supporting everything from cooking programs, to recreation activities, and even a resource lending library,” says Shuswap MLA Greg Kyllo. “At the end of the day, these organizations do excellent work supporting families in our communities.” These grants were awarded under the Human and Social Services category of the Community Gaming Grant Program, which allows non-profit organizations to apply for provincial gaming revenues from the Ministry of Community, Sport and Cultural Development. Gaming Grants are also awarded in the categories of Public Safety, Environment, and Arts and Culture. Above: Sue Rossi (from left), Shuswap MLA Greg Kyllo, and Sue Phillips are on hand for the presentation of an $8000 gaming grant to the Enderby and District Community Resource Centre Society.

More than half of women in Canada will experience abuse in their lifetime and over 360,000 children are exposed to family violence each year. On Saturday, May 3, Royal LePage offices across Canada will play host to the National Garage Sale for Shelter, a one-day charitable garage sale in support of the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation, Canada’s largest public foundation dedicated exclusively to supporting women’s shelters and ending family violence. The sale takes place at the Royal LePage offices, 2-551 Trans Canada Hwy NE, from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Since 2009, the National Garage Sale for Shelter has raised more than $1.6 million. This year the organization looks to reach a goal of $2 million dollars raised in total. Members of the community are encouraged to get involved by donating gently used items to the Royal LePage Access Real Estate office by Friday, May 2nd; and by visiting the garage sale on Saturday, May 3rd.

Our favourite place to buy fruit and vegetables is a truck stand on the highway, but the big supermarkets and Costco are just a 35-minute drive away in Cabo San Lucas, so we often shop out of town just the way we do here. Mexicans have no welfare system. If they want to eat, they have to work. As a result, everyone finds a way to make ends meet. There are little grocery stores on every corner. You’ll find shady-tree mechanics and food stands everywhere. Some of the services come right to our gate. Lupe and his wife pick up the garbage each Monday morning for whatever I care to donate, usually $5. Kiko comes each Friday with pails and a vacuum cleaner to wash my car (a $10 donation). Most days Dencho appears at noon selling hot tamales, empanadas, and burritos out of the trunk of his car.

What I like and dislike about Mexico

Last week I promised you the lowdown on Mexico as a snowbird destination. As many of you know, Old Mall Arkey winters in Baja California Sur, which is at the tip that long peninsula south of the state of California. Unlike other parts of Mexico, the relatively remote Baja has managed to avoid the drug war violence and we feel safe there. The first thing I like about the Baja is the weather. Think of the nicest day in June. That’s what you can expect all winter in the Baja. Daytime temperatures are usually 25-28 degrees Celsius, and it drops to 15 degrees at night. It’s almost always sunny with a light breeze off the ocean. I often sit out under the stars in shorts and a light jacket. You don’t need a lot of money to live comfortably. We have no bills for heating or air conditioning. My biggest household expense is water at $100 a month and propane at $300 for the season. The electricity we use for lights and the TV comes from eight big batteries charged by four 175-watt solar panels. Food is cheaper in the Baja. Fruit and vegetables are always

Welcome to our newest Benefactors WILBERT AND SHIRLEY STEWART

by Ron Adams

There are at least twenty places to eat within a couple of miles. These range from palmfrond-covered, plastic-chairequipped stands selling shrimp tacos for a buck all the way to a plush seated, white-glovedwaiter-equipped dining palace where the artistically presented seafood entrees start at fifteen dollars. Needless to say, we eat out three or four times a week. My favourite is a breezy restaurant overlooking the mountains and the sea where a daily special comprising a fruit drink, a fish or chicken dinner, and a desert of fresh strawberries and caramel custard (flan) can be had for 70 pesos or $5.60. I feel guilty paying so little and usually leave a 30-peso tip. After the weather, the best thing about the Baja is the food. Okay, okay. That’s enough for this week. I’m hungry. I’ve got to go and put a TV dinner in the microwave. Daron-willing, there’ll be more on this topic next week.

Wilbert and Shirley Stewart have lived in Sicamous almost 20 years and prior to that they resided in Salmon Arm where they farmed and raised their two children. Now they are the proud grandparents of three grandchildren and one great grandchild. Shirley was a nurse and practiced at the old hospital in Salmon Arm as well as in Penticton, Vernon and Fort St. John. Shirley stated, “It is good to see that hospital staff today have the same goals as we did when I was a nurse, to see people leaving the hospital, well and healthy again.” Wilbert enjoyed farming as well as carpentry. He mentioned, “I was proud of being able to help build a number of buildings in Salmon Arm.” Wilbert and Shirley noted that they have needed to use the Shuswap Lake General Hospital over the years “sometimes in emergency situations,” said Shirley. “We feel that it is now time to give back by making a donation to the CT Scan Upgrade.” Wilbert & Shirley Stewart’s donation will assist in bringing the CT Scan Upgrade to the hospital and the Shuswap Hospital Foundation is extremely grateful for their thoughtfulness and generosity. We applaud Wilbert & Shirley Stewart for their assistance to fund much needed equipment for the Shuswap Lake General Hospital and we congratulate them on becoming Benefactors of the Shuswap Hospital Foundation.

Tomato is a superstar in the fruit and veggie pantheon. Tomatoes contain lycopene, a powerful cancer fighter. They’re also rich in vitamin C. The good news is that cooked tomatoes are also nutritious, so use them in pasta, soups and casseroles, as well as in salads. The British Thoracic Society says that tomatoes and apples can reduce your risk of asthma and chronic lung diseases. Both contain the antioxidant quercetin. To enjoy the benefits, eat five apples a week or a tomato every other day.

Letters to the Editor

Will the government do the right thing? the new recycling program, brought to a community near you, which will create unnecessary and unwanted activity for everyone, especially seniors, some of whom do not have transportation, and others who ought not to be forced to drive to depots far from their homes to drop off recyclables which to this date have been picked up at the curbside in front of their domiciles! In the 25 years that I have owned my property, not once has a garbage truck or a recycling pick-up vehicle come to my home because I live at the top of a steep, curving driveway at the end of the street. I have never complained about this situation because it is not the fault of the drivers that I chose to live here. But I am now complaining because of the trips I will have to make to

different drop-off points to get rid of items that once were acceptable in the blue bag routine with which I was able to cope. I called the Emterra Environmental Customer Service hotline recently and the sympathetic but powerless young woman with whom I spoke admitted that the phone has been ringing unremittingly since the program was announced and that every call was from an angry citizen. Will the government do the right thing and reverse the stupidity or ought we to just suck it up and add it to the growing list as to why the voters did the wrong thing by offering the sitting government another foolish mandate? With sincerity but diminishing respect, Edgar Murdoch, Enderby

Illegal dumping a problem at Tappen recycle bins

The amount of illegal dumping that is happening at the Tappen Co-op recycle bin site is causing the Columbia Shuswap Regional District (CSRD) to consider removing the bins. “We’re providing a community service. The community wants a recycle depot but if it continues to be abused, we will have no choice but to remove it,” says CSRD Waste Reduction Facilitator Carmen Fennell.

PET

of the MONTH

The Sorrento depot was shut down for several months in 2010 because the abandoned garbage and contamination of the bins made it impossible to keep the site operating. It was difficult to find a caretaker to manage the site when the decision was made to re-establish the depot because no one wanted the job of having to deal with the mess and abuse of the site. The manager of the Tappen Co-op, and caretaker of the recycle depot, Andy Munro, is feeling the same frustration at the mess left on his property. “It seems to be getting worse,” says Mr. Munro. “Things like paint, batteries, oil, and cardboard too large to fit into the slots on the bin get left on the ground. This is a great community program, but it’s getting abused and is becoming too much to look after.” The caretaker’s job is to ensure the site is properly maintained. If people dump garbage, the caretaker – in this case, the Tappen Co-op – has to pay out of their pockets to haul away the garbage. They have

to clean it up, haul it to the appropriate depot or pay the tipping fees at the landfill site. Mr. Munro says he expects the people abusing the site don’t realize they are illegally dumping, and don’t understand that contamination in the bins means the entire bin may end up in the garbage. The Tappen site is popular for those who appreciate the option to recycle, and the bin is emptied two to three times a week. However, this site has been increasingly difficult to maintain due to illegal dumping. Fennell says she hopes people who are using the recycle bin as their garbage dump will act more responsibly. “Sorrento lost their depot once, and if the abuse of the site continues in Tappen, the same thing will happen. Many items such as paint, small appliances and electronics can be dropped off free of charge at Bill’s Bottle Depot in Salmon Arm during business hours, and other items such as oil and antifreeze have several free disposal options available. Leaving them anywhere else is illegal dumping.” The CSRD does have provisions for giving fines of up to $200 under Bylaw 5615. “I hope it doesn’t come to the point where we have to give out fines or take the bins away permanently, but if those few people who are dumping their garbage continue to act irresponsibly, we won’t have any choice.”

AIRPORT APPRECIATION DAY at the Shuswap Regional Airport

Workplace casualties recognized

www.lakeshorenews.bc.ca

Over 18,000 people dead, and over 245,000 people injured. I stopped writing and looked again at my notepad, the numbers sinking in. How could this be right? This was not some natural disaster, a tsunami or earthquake, nor was it a war although the numbers might suggest so. I stopped photographing and taking notes and listened to speaker Kevin Hansen as he continued his speech, the numbers still rolling around in my head. I was attending the National Day of Mourning in Marine Park for lives lost in the workplace, a ceremony I admit I had been indifferent to attend. In fact, I

even know about April 28th and what happens on this day? Started in Canada by C.U.P.E. in 1984 and made official in 1991, the National Day of Mourning has been adopted by over 80 countries since. There are two reasons for the observance on this day; the first being to remember and honour those lost in dedication to their jobs, and the second to commit to prevent further injuries and deaths in the workplace. Although the ceremony in Salmon Arm is comparatively

had been up editing photos late the night before and really hadn’t been looking forward to attending. Until I heard the numbers. Over 900 people in Canada losing their lives annually. 18,039 lives lost in the 20 years from 1993 to 2012. More than two people in Canada dying every single day. It was staggering to think about and that wasn’t even considering the 245,365 workplace injuries that occur annually. I paused to think of my brother who lost the fingers on his hand while working in a machine shop years ago– just one of thousands of workplace accidents that year, each and every one preventable. As I milled over the numbers in my mind, I began to realize and understand the importance of this ceremony, and as I looked around the sparse crowd I was a bit saddened that so few were attending. Of course, it was a work day so a very many working people wouldn’t be able to make it. The irony hit me as I realized that two more people in Canada would die on the job today while being unable to attend a memorial service for people who had been killed in workplace accidents. How many people

small, on a national and international basis more and more attention is being given to this day with observances including the wearing of black armbands, parliamentary flags being flown at half-mast and the wearing of ribbons and observing moments of silence. Of course, because there is no national holiday to honour this day (such as there is for Remembrance Day), far fewer people are able to attend or even know about it. Two people dead every day. Canada can do better. We have to do better. We have more improved technology and safety equipment every year, but the numbers don’t seem to be dropping; in fact in 2012, they were 6% higher than the previous year. In order to start to

Employees need to start bringing their concerns to their employers, and not be afraid to demand a safe work environment, since it is the law that no worker has to work in an unsafe work place. Employees also need to wear their PPE (personal protective equipment) on the job as required, and not remove it because it feels uncomfortable or they don’t like the way it looks. Employers need to realize that they have a duty to provide a safe work environment to their employees and that just one workplace accident can cost them a lot more in insurance costs, time lost in retraining and other costs than the cost of having proper safety standards and train-

ing in place. As for April 28th, the National Day of Mourning, I will for sure be attending next year and would like to see a great many more people attending as well. Employees should let their employers know about this date and employers could either allow their employees to attend or, as an alternative, observe a moment of silence with their employees on that day to honour the event.

A restaurant serving vegetarian, Mediterranean, or organic dishes is bound to be a hit. Does she dream of travelling to exotic places around the world?

other’s Day is celebrated on various days in many parts of the world. Many countries and cultures choose to celebrate Mother’s Day in March, April or May. Though the Mother’s Day many people know today dates back a little more than a century, historians note that ancient Romans kept a festival to Cybele, a great mother of the Gods. In addition, Europe has several traditions aimed at honoring mothers that date back quite a while.

One of the traditions associated with the current Mother’s Day is to give Mom a gift. Some people only give their own mothers and wives gifts, while others extend their generosity to sisters with children, mothers-in-law and even grandmothers. Chances are, over the years, Mom’s gifts have run the gamut, from a homemade treasure kids made in elementary school to jewelry from hubby to breakfast in bed. For those who want to add a literary tilt to their Mother’s Day gift this year, consider including any of the following motherly quotes when preparing a gift Mom won’t soon forget. “Of all the rights of women, the greatest is to be a mother.” - Lin Yutang, Chinese writer “I remember my mother’s prayers and they have always followed me. They have clung to me all my life.” - Abraham Lincoln, 16th President of the United States of America “Youth fades; love droops; the leaves of friendship fall; A mother’s secret hope outlives them all.” - Oliver Wendell Holmes, American author “A man loves his sweetheart the most, his wife the best, but his mother the longest.” - Irish proverb

“All women become like their mothers. That is their tragedy. No man does. That’s his.” - Oscar Wilde, Irish poet “If I was damned of body and soul, I know whose prayers would make me whole, Mother o’ mine, O mother o’ mine.” - Rudyard Kipling, in his poem “Mother O’ Mine” “The heart of a mother is a deep abyss at the bottom of which you will always find forgiveness.” - Honoré de Balzac, French playwright “The future destiny of a child is always the work of the mother.” - Napoleon Bonaparte, Emperor of France “The God to whom little boys say their prayers has a face very like their mothers’.” - James Matthew Barrie, Scottish author

Downtown street festival

Mark your calendars – the Salty Street Festival is coming to make downtown Salmon Arm come alive on Saturday, May 10th. People are invited to come out for a wonderful day full of activities, bike events, and a free Routes & Blues sponsored concert featuring long time festival favourites Five Alarm Funk. Salty Street Fest, presented cooperatively by Routes & Blues, Skookum Cycle & Ski, Shuswap Tourism and various other stakeholders like The Candy Vault, The Shuswap Pie Company and Downtown Salmon Arm, offers up fun for the whole family and for people of all ages. Youngsters can come out in the morning and experience a petting zoo with Demilles’ bunnies. Later on, deck out your bike and enter a bike parade (hosted by the Candy Vault), which begins at 11:00 a.m. and winds its way through downtown Salmon Arm under police escort, complete with flashing lights. Don’t have a bike or need a bike part? Come on out if you want

to sell, trade, or purchase bikes and parts at the Shuswap’s only bike swap. Drop off from 9:00–11:00 a.m.; swap runs from 11:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. across the street from Skookum Cycle & Ski. And there’s still more fun to be had when, at 2:15 p.m., teens can take part in a scavenger hunt for a chance to win some awesome prizes, including thousands in scholarship money! For the adults, local wineries are working with downtown restaurants to present a tasting tour, which promises to be delicious. Save room for desert though and head on down to the wharf, because the music cranks up at the Marine Park gazebo, with Routes & Blues presenting Five Alarm Funk at 5:00 p.m. And here’s where it gets interesting – at 5:45 p.m. there will be a break in the music for a pie-eating contest hosted by the Shuswap Pie Company. Things could get real messy before the band resumes its second set! What a day–bunnies, bikes, parades, prizes, funk, and pie, glorious pie! File photo.

Sharp Shooters flatten competition

By Andi King Nor the wind, rain or hail could hold back the Shuswap Sharp Shooters U11’s girl’s development soccer team on Sunday as they leveled Kelowna and Kamloops teams in Penticton. Kelowna came out strong in the first game by scoring 10 minutes in but Shuswap responded immediately with Jordan King making a run up the field off the kickoff and scoring off a brilliant, long shot to the top left hand corner. Shuswap’s passing proved to be too much for Kelowna and Alana O’Dell managed to power her way through three Kelowna defenders before slotting the ball into the back of the net. Kelowna was unable to equalize as Shuswap’s defense, anchored by Laura Hall proved to be impenetrable. The final score was 2-1 for Shuswap. The Sharp Shooters came out firing in their second contest of the day. Lys Milne, who was unstop-

pable all afternoon, managed to get by two Kamloops defenders before crossing the ball to the middle of the goal to Jordan King who able to put the ball in the back of the net. Shortly after, Shuswap was able to capitalize again as Braidy Parkes passed to King and she was able to finish with a rocket of a shot. Shuswap defence was solid all game barely allowing any chances on goal. Phoebe Barnes, scored off a brilliant, well placed corner kick giving Shuswap a 3-0 lead early in the second half. After great passing in the midfield, Brooklyn Davidson managed to find the back of the net on a feisty run up the wing. Lys Milne finished off the scoring of the day by beating two defenders and slotting the ball beautifully past the goalie. Braidy Parkes and Julia Hart were both fantastic in goal and shared the shutout. The final score was 5-0.

ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT Shuswap students earn arts scholarships

15 minutes of fame

A few months ago, Twyla Stone of Salmon Arm sent a clip in to America’s Funniest Videos of her cat Pascal playing peek-a-boo with her. To her surprise she received a response from the show’s producers earlier this week informing her that the video would be aired on AFV Sunday night, May 4th, at 7:00 p.m. Tune in to ABC to catch the video of Pascal. Photo contributed.

SALMON ARM – Shuswap MLA Greg Kyllo announced the names of two students from the Shuswap who have received scholarships from the B.C. Arts Council. B.C. Arts Council scholarships were awarded to Alicia Venables of Armstrong, who is studying music at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music; and Lacia Vogel of Enderby, who is currently attending the University of Regina studying visual arts. They will each receive $5,000 to fund their studies. “I would like to personally congratulate Alicia and Lacia on receiving these scholarships,” said Shuswap MLA Greg Kyllo. “These scholarships reward some of the most creative and talented artists in B.C. so it is an incredible honour that these two students from our region receive this very high honour.” As B.C.’s lead agency for arts funding and development, the B.C. Arts Council enlists the expertise of British Columbia’s artists to evaluate grant applications through a peer review process independent of government. Established in 1995, the B.C. Arts Council consults with the arts and culture community to

develop policies, programs and strategic priorities for the sector. Last year, the Council approved more than 1,000 grants in over 200 communities in every region of the province. The provincial government is providing $24 million to the B.C. Arts Council this year, the highest

funding level in the Council’s history. Overall, it is investing $60 million towards B.C.’s artists, arts organizations and cultural institutions during the 2014-15 fiscal year. For more information about the B.C. Arts Council, including information on how to apply for grants, visit BCArtsCouncil.ca.

ATTENTION RELAY TEAMS!

Enemy

Inspired by Jose Saramago’s 2004 novel The Double and directed by Canada’s Denis Villeneuve (Prisoners), Enemy follows introverted history professor Adam (Jake Gyllenhaal), whose dull existence takes an unexpected turn when he watches an obscure movie recommended by a colleague and spots his doppelganger Anthony (also Gyllenhaal) in a minor role. Disinterested with his life and his girlfriend (Melanie Laurent), Adam consults his mother (Isabella Rossellini) on the possibility he has a twin and becomes obsessed with meeting Anthony; who is suspicious at first but feeling equally disenchanted with his pregnant wife (Sarah Gadon), his curiosity eventually gets the better of him and he agrees to a rendezvous. After Adam and Anthony become acquainted, the Twilight Zone-esque mystery only thickens as their lives are irrevocably changed in their search for identity through the pressures of not knowing who you are and being something you’re not–all leading to a conclusion that will have everyone sharing their theories after the show. Enemy shows on Saturday, May 3 at 5:00 p.m. at the Salmar Classic Theatre.

Our forests, our future

It was a cold snowy morning, just a few winters back. That’s the day we drove up the headwaters of Chase Creek and into China Valley. 82-yearold trapper Tina Watts, who has now passed on, had called me regarding beetle salvage timber being harvested by a major forest company. Winding our way up the snow covered hillside, to where the equipment was parked, we began to check log decks. 30/40% was green wood, taken across a huge swath of mountain side. One feisty lady, she had the Ministry of Forests and the logging company in a tizzy, on what to do next. She had obtained a copy of guidelines from the district manager in Vernon that the company was to follow. The company, known for its aggressive harvesting practices, was about to get a setback. We called in the Forest Practices board. By now, the company was clearcutting up into spruce balsam stands. Three helicopter flights later, along with public open house meetings, and a tour of the logging sites by Chase Creek water users, confirmed that too much non-pine beetle (green standing) infested wood was being harvested. From the government, companies receive upset stumpage fees on salvage wood, as low as 25 cents per metre. On fire salvage, about the same, but loggers will also hide green timber on the inside of a load of logs, keeping the burnt wood towards the outside. It would be sorted later on a remote landing. Conclusion of the investigation? Not a damn thing. It was a transition time. One

company was buying out the other, and harvesting plans were in flux. Now the chickens have really come home to roost, as there are fears that over-harvesting of mid-term timber (wood fibre for the future), will affect mill jobs and closures. This is the period when the beetle epidemic ends, harvest has to be reduced, and trees will develop into timber. A recent article by Derrick Penner in the Vancouver Sun discloses just how severe these cuts will be to the forest industry and mills as they begin to cut green stands to keep mills running. Hardest-hit areas of the pine beetle were the Okanagan, Quesnel, Prince George, and Vanderhoof. Dave Peterson, Assistant Deputy Minister of BC Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations, says there may be a scale-back of up to 26 % or 1.6 million cubic metres for those areas. In a tough message to loggers, Peterson said if loggers can’t stay within their cutting quota, they will not be able to utilize the rest of the timber they were allocated. Getting back to the above investigation, I read what the guidelines were for harvesting, and there were stipulations that stands with mixed green lodgepole pine should be left near watercourses, and wildlife strips were also required. The company had to be chased out of a mature fir

strip by the district manager on one of his field inspections. The unfortunate aspect of this whole scenario is that no one in Fish and Wildlife, Ministry of Forests, and Natural Resources has the gonads from the beginning of beetle wood

salvage to enforce laws and fine the large timber companies who have ravaged the timber belonging to the people of BC for their own profit. There are 70 management units allocated to large forest companies; 37 timber supply; and 33 tree farm licences. Their annual cut is about 1% of forested land. This they manage and replant. This leaves the province with the lion’s share for managing our forests and their future. With totally incomplete forest inventory, and a layoff of over 1000 Forest Service employees in recent years, even midterm monitoring of replanting results in a totally inadequate forest health research branch, and an outdated forest inventory. It will be only through a renewed commitment to sustainable forest practices, as well as respect for non-timber values, that we will be assured that our Crown lands will be handed properly for future generations.

Here and there in the Shuswap Ol Fred loved fishin.’ But he was lonely. His wife had passed on a few seasons earlier. But then he met Betty. She was petite and charming, and he fell head over heels for her. They had dated now for some time, and at the urging of many of his old fishin’ buddies and her friends, they thought they should tie the knot and get married. Before the wedding, they went out to dinner, and had a long conversation on how their marriage would work. They discussed finances, about how him and his buddies loved to fish, and that he’d have to clean his catch outside, and their living arrangements. Finally, ol’ Fred decided it was time to broach the question on the

physical side of things. “How do you feel about sex?” he asked, rather intensely. Betty replied,”I would like it infrequently.” Ol’ Fred sat quietly for a moment, adjusting his glasses, then leaning over toward her, whispered, “Is that one word or two?!” Fishing: dropping by Wholesale Sports in Kamloops recently to pick up a couple of lures, I entered their draw for a fishin’ trip to Lake Athabasca. Enter by going online to www.wholesalesports.com and clicking on Freshwater Frenzy. Most lakes are coming on better with warmer weather. Tip: keep a daily record of your angling activity – time, place, weather, etc. As well, go online for solunar tables and best times to fish.

Tomato is a superstar in the fruit and veggie pantheon. Tomatoes contain lycopene, a powerful cancer fighter. They’re also rich in vitamin C. The good news is that cooked tomatoes are also nutritious, so use them in pasta, soups and casseroles, as well as in salads. The British Thoracic Society says that tomatoes and apples can reduce your risk of asthma and chronic lung diseases. Both contain the antioxidant quercetin. To enjoy the benefits, eat five apples a week or a tomato every other day.

Check out the wood heat installation company before you hire them, and make sure they have the following: • BBB Membership • Valid Wett Certificate • Liability Insurance Gerry & Sons Roofing also troubleshoots all systems – down drafting, back pressure, and insufficient draw are all caused by improper installation! 38 YEARS EXPERIENCE

We loved a great man. A husband, father, papa, brother, son, cousin, uncle and a deeply cherished friend. He loved us all, and we loved him. He was raised in Medicine Hat, started his family with Yvonne in Lethbridge, and moved to Salmon Arm with Yvonne, Michelle and Michael in 1987. His grandchildren, Seth, Ethan and Evan (Michael and Valene) and Keira and Ryder (Michelle and Corey Spence) put a sparkle in his eye and kept him young and vibrant! We have comfort in knowing that he lived his life with joy and had many wonderful memories with family and friends. A friendly and social man, he made friends wherever he went and impacted them all. His welcoming smile, strong yet so gentle hands, and warm embrace meant so much. He passed doing one of his most favourite things, snowmobiling, which he enjoyed with many friends and family in Salmon Arm. He had a great day on the mountain! Who would have known that in a split second he would be gone? We will think fondly back on our memories and celebrate his life on Saturday, May 3 at 2:00 pm at Bower’s Funeral Home. A gathering will follow. Online memories may be shared through Gordon’s obituary at www.bowersfuneralservice.com Arrangements are in the care of Bowers Funeral Home and Crematorium, Salmon Arm, BC

Murray Ronald Smith It is with great sadness and a heavy heart to announce the peaceful passing of Murray Ronald Smith on April 19, 2014. Murray was born in Selkirk, Manitoba on January 13, 1941 to Murray and Helen Smith. Murray married Bonnie Smith (Poffenroth) on August 5, 1978 in Okotoks, Alberta. Murray worked for the Pulp and Paper Industry for 35 years in Richmond, BC. He enjoyed many camping trips with his wife Bonnie; hockey was his passion as he and his wife were season ticket holders for the Salmon Arm Silverbacks and watched all the games cheering with their many friends in Section “I”. He enjoyed curling in the 50 plus league on Tuesdays, the stick league on Thursday morning, and the Thursday night league at the Salmon Arm curling center. He especially loved all the get togethers with family and friends. Murray is survived by his wife Bonnie, beloved cats Artica and Sachi, sister Arlene (Richard) Graham and their family; brother Lawrie (Tracey) and their family; Aunt Marge Woosman and her family as well as many nephews, nieces, cousins and friends. Murray was predeceased by his parents Murray and Helen Smith and brother Glen Smith. A special thanks to Dr. Grant McCallum of Maple Tree Clinic for his stellar care and compassion. Thanks to nurses in room 209 at Shuswap Lake Hospital who cared for Murray and thanks to the staff at Bastion Care home for making his final days so loving and comfortable. Heartfelt thanks for all the support and love from our many special friends. Celebration of Life service will be held at Bowers Funeral Chapel on Saturday on May 10, 2014 at 2:00 pm and a time of fellowship and refreshments will follow the service allowing friends and family to continue sharing memories.

Volunteer trail blitz facilitated with horsepower

A hush falls over the busy volunteers as pack horses, Spirit and Sam, arrive bearing another 300 pound load of rock. Something about the quiet presence of the horses seem to add to the overall sense of good will during this weekend’s two-day push to improve the trails at South

Food bank restocked

Dr. Jenica Sorban and assistant Sadie Naylor sort through the food donations brought into the Sorrento Chiropractic Centre on April 10 and 11. For a food bank donation, Drs. Darren McNaugthen and Jenica Sorban provided adjustments free of charge. Food products valued at $2290 were donated. The Sorrento Food Bank would like to extend their thanks; the donations are much appreciated this time of year. Photo by Jim Chisholm.

Canoe just east of Salmon Arm. “Each horse carried about 175 pounds a trip,” said Linda Buchanan, President of the Backcountry Horsemen of BC Shuswap Chapter, who estimated the two horses carried a total of 4200 pounds over the day. “That’s the equivalent of about 16 people a trip,” calculated Sutra Brett (Ways2Ride/Skookum Cycle and Ski) and Damon Kent (Shuswap Trail Alliance), who coordinated the technical work with fellow trail developers, Jim Maybee (Trailheads Cycle and Ski) and Veda Roberge (Shuswap Trail Alliance). What started as a “wouldn’t it be cool if” conversation between the group during a planning session had quickly evolved into a living solution when put to local equestrian trail users. The two horses joined over 140 people who came out over five volunteer days this month to work on major improvements to the South Canoe trail system. New reroutes, bridges, culverts, and signage are helping to open damaged trails, protect streams, and improve shared use by horses, hikers, and cyclists on what is arguably the Shuswap’s most visited recreational trail system. Volunteers represented all ages and trail uses, including mountain biking, equestrian, trail running, and hiking. South Canoe Trail

Stewardship liaison, Dan Capek, thanked a group of 90 volunteers at this Sunday’s event, which included a barbeque lunch sponsored by Skookum Cycle and Ski. He acknowledged the remarkable collaboration of so many people, including in-kind sponsorship from the community. Special thanks was given to the EQ Trail Association for a $3000 grant for materials on the Prudential Trail Upgrades, Ken Gibson and Recreation Sites and Trails BC for a $5000 grant toward Upper Trail Signs, the City of Salmon Arm for ongoing support including trailhead signage, Ray Mills and Canoe Forest Products (Gorman Brothers) for a donation of salvaged 10x10 stringers for trail bridges, Veda Roberge/Hayley Feibelcorn/Kevin Pattison for figuring out how to muscle those 10x10 stringers into place (check out the new Undercut trail bridge at

South Canoe – a beauty), Sutra Brett (Ways2Ride/Skookum Cycle)/ Adrian Jenson/and Steve St Denis with Freedom Framing for all the work bolting stringers together ready for bridges, this year’s Rapattack Crew for spring saw work on bigger blow downs, and everyone on the technical planning team coordinating work behind the scenes (Jim Maybee with Trailheads Cycle, Sutra Brett with Ways2Ride/Skookum Cycle, Damon Kent, Veda Roberge, Kevin Pattison, Ray Mills, Tom Peasgood with Skookum Cycle, and South Canoe Trail Advisory liaison Dan Capek and chairperson Isabel Reinertson). And of course – everyone who helped raise funds at this past February’s Shuswap Trail Alliance fundraiser was acknowledged for raising the base funding to support the project. “The five days have been a moving expression of what working together as a Trail Alliance is all about,” said Phil McIntyrePaul, Executive Director of the Shuswap Trail Alliance. Check out the Shuswap Trails event calendar for more volunteer days throughout the region at www. shuswaptrails.com; and be sure to share trail maintenance needs through the trail report hotline email at trailreport@shuswaptrails.com.

Welcome to the Shuswap, the holiday destination choice of those who appreciate the beauty of nature, friendly locals, and an impressive array of amenities and specialty stores. What is particularly enjoyable about a vacation here is the sheer number of activities that are available. Outdoor enthusiasts can have their pick of hiking, biking, horseback riding, swimming, fishing, golfing, canoeing, quading, and motorboating in the warmer weather; or snowshoeing, skiing, skating, and snowmobiling in the winter. For those whose ideal

vacation involves shopping, why not enjoy the taste of local wines, beer, cheese, fruit, and vegetables? Stop by one of the area’s many farmers’ markets or the local shops. The local dining scene is impressive in its variety. If you’re looking for authentic Shuswap gifts, either for yourself as a memento of your wonderful vacation or for others, there is plenty of choice; the Shuswap area is justly famous for its abundance of artistic talent. Whatever your taste may be–art, sculpture, pottery, books, jewelry, etc. –you won’t have any trouble finding something that’s perfect and unique.

Salmon Arm is the heart and hub of the Shuswap. With a population of over 17,000, it’s the largest community in the area. But your stay isn’t complete without spending time in the surrounding communities: North Shuswap, South Shuswap, Falkland, Enderby, Armstrong, Malakwa, Sicamous, and Revelstoke. Each community has its particular charm and attractions. Whether you’re here to enjoy R&R in the summer sun, winter sports with mild temperatures and powder snow, or visiting during the spring or fall months, we extend a heartfelt welcome. We’re glad you came.

Salmon Arm Downtown

Salmon Arm is the largest centre, and economic hub of the Shuswap. The downtown itself is a vibrant mix of restaurants, coffee shops, artisan shops and galleries, specialty stores and boutiques that offer items you just can’t get anywhere else. The compactness of the downtown area makes it easily walkable. As you enjoy your stroll, you can see some of the buildings that were built in the early 1900s. Hudson Avenue is home to an art gallery, theatre, post office, specialty shops and restaurants and Lakeshore News which has a newspaper stand outside the office. Grab a paper - it’s free - and check out the local events and movie shows and times. Hudson crosses Alexander Street, Salmon Arm’s only one-way street. Most of the city’s banks are located on Alexander St., and the rest are within a couple of blocks. You will also find clothing stores, pies, lattes, flowers, books and restaurants, along with Salmon Arm’s classic theatre. If you’re here during New York’s opera season, you can take in a live broadcast perfor-

mance from the Met at this theatre. On Lakeshore Drive you can find a locally-owned grocery store, art shops, clothing stores, shoes and specialty shops. Throughout the downtown core, there are plenty of spas and hairdressers who are always happy to accommodate walkin customers. On Ross Street there’s an outdoor stage which often has musicians and bands

Washrooms

If you need the washroom while you’re walking around downtown Salmon Arm, there are a few convenient locations. There are washrooms located at the Ross Street parking lot (corner of Ross and Hudson) across from the Pharmasave. A few blocks away there are public washrooms at Fletcher Park (2 Ave, across the street from the firehall). If you’re by the wharf, you will find washrooms in-between Marine Peace Park and the parking lot, and at the end of the wharf. There are also washrooms a the Visitor Information Centre located at 20 Hudson Ave, NE, just off the Trans Canada Highway.

visitors alike take advantage of the spray park. There is playground equipment for all ages, picnic tables, and lots of space to put out a blanket and enjoy a picnic. There is plenty of parking and the park offers a smoke-free and dog-free environment. Marine Peace Park is a popular picnic area as well which is conveniently located in the downtown area on Marine Park Drive NE. This park has picnic tables, benches, a wharf, boardwalk, and nature trails; and is especially busy in the evenings as the weather cools off and locals come for their evening stroll. On Wednesday nights throughout the summer the popular ‘Wednesday on the Wharf ’ free concerts are held in the gazebo, weather-permitting (see page 9), From this park you can access the Salmon Arm Bay Nature Trails. This is truly the best place in BC to catch glimpses of shorebirds that stop over on their long flights south. In 2013 some 40 species were recorded in the bay, including a rare yellow-billed loon and a Ross’s goose. Last summer about a dozen American white pelicans were seen close to the wharf.

Also, right on the edge of the downtown (6 Ave NE) is McGuire Lake. This is a popular strolling area as the walkway is paved and wheelchair accessible. There is a Japanese Gate from Salmon Arm’s sister city, Inashiki, and plenty of turtles, geese and ducks. It’s not unusual to see bridal parties here as the park’s natural beauty has made it a favourite photo stop. Blackburn Park has all-new universal access playground equipment, an amazing skateboard park, and lots of fields. It is a few blocks from the downtown core (5 Ave SW). There are washroom facilities, a concession stand and picnic tables.

Fletcher Park is a 3-acre lush green oasis right near the downtown core on 2 Ave NE. On a hot sunny day this is the coolest– and busiest–spot in town as locals and

WOW The wharf

From early morning joggers to evening social strollers–going down the wharf has become part of a daily ritual for many locals. The beauty of the lake, the fun of spotting various birds, and the convenient location all contribute to the wharf ’s enduring popularity. The first wharf, built in the mid 1800s, was far more utilitarian, built to accommodate large sternwheelers that were used to transport people and goods to and from places like Enderby and Kamloops. You won’t see sternwheelers parked around the wharf anymore, but you can see houseboats, speedboats, Sea-doos, as well as dragon boats, canoes and kayaks around the marina. Boaters can buy marine fuel at the marina and there is also a septic pump out for

WOW is the acronym for ‘Wednesday on the Wharf ’ but it’s also the word you hear thrown about during these fun, free, and fabulous outdoor concerts. From June 11 to August 27, local and visiting talent get the place rocking. It might be jazz, rock, funk or folk. As the name implies, it all takes place by the wharf in Marine Park. Bring a lawn chair or blanket to sit on–unless of course you intend to dance the whole time, which is perfectly acceptable. It begins at 6:45 pm and goes until 8:30 pm. Come early if you want to park close by, or you can use the Ross Street parking lot and walk a couple of blocks. The concerts are free, but donations are always gratefully accepted. These muchloved concerts are brought to you by the Shuswap District Arts Council and the Downtown Improvement Association.

SALMON ARM

If you go to Egypt, you can’t leave without seeing the pyramids; a tourist in Arizona wouldn’t miss the Grand Canyon, and of course you would see the Great Barrier Reef if you were touring Australia. If you were to ask locals what’s the ‘not-to-miss’ site in Salmon Arm, they would point you to the bird sanctuary along Salmon Arm Bay. It’s not as imposing or as famous as the great natural wonders around the

world, but you’ll soon find out for yourself why we’re just as fond as our bay. Our wetlands here provide an ideal habitat for nesting and resting for some 250 species of birds that either make their summer home here or winter haven, or a stop over during migration season. It’s a beautiful and peaceful (albeit usually busy) spot right by the downtown centre. The boardwalk and viewing platforms are perfect for bird watching, or you can take a side trail out to Christmas Island for fine views of the waterfowl. From the parking lot you can take the Osprey Nest walk which is about 15 minutes return, or you can tour Christmas Island which can take anywhere from 1-2 hours return depending on how many pictures you stop to take! Please keep your dog on a leash for the Osprey Nest walk, and pets are not allowed on the Christmas Island loop because this is a sensitive riparian habitat. Please stay on the designated trail and respect seasonal closures due to nesting and flooding. All this is right by the Salmon Arm wharf so this is another option for an easily accessible walk. www.shuswaptrails.com

Within the City of Salmon Arm you will find a lot of green space, parks, and woodsy trails. With a total of eight kilometres of wide, smooth forested nature trails appropriate for families, it’s easy to see why Little Mountain Park is one of the most popular hiking and cycling trail systems. There are varying routes. Depending on your time, you can do one of the shorter loops within a half hour or you can do a variety of figure 8 loops which also offer a short climb to views of Salmon Arm, Salmon Arm Bay, Fly Hills, and Mt. Ida. There’s a couple of different entrances to Little Mountain Park: From east Salmon Arm on Hwy 1, turn south on 30 St SE then left (east) at Okanagan Ave. The west parking area is at the end of the street. There is also a south entrance with parking on 10 Ave SE near 35 St SE.

On Fridays during the summer you will want to have a picnic lunch downtown Salmon Arm. It’s the popular Lunchbox Stage where music fills the air at the Ross Street Plaza. This is always a fun treat for the family. So bring your lawn chairs and relax beside the fountain and enjoy the tunes. The concert series takes place every Friday throughout July and August from 12:30 to 1:30 pm. Every week a different musician or band is featured so there is quite a variety of styles and genres. Of course, you may want to dance and that’s okay, just remember to dance like nobody is watching.

Christmas production (often a pantomime) has been added to the season. Second Stage productions began in 2002, recognizing a need to provide a venue for play readings, and to provide new actors and directors with an opportunity to gain experience. In the last few years an Improv Group named Laughing Gas, has been formed, performing for the public several times a year.

SALMON ARM Salmon Arm Roots and Blues Festival

2014 SHUSWAP VISITORS’ GUIDE 16

Now in its 22nd year, the Salmon Arm Roots & Blues Festival is the largest, most musically diverse festival in the BC interior. Over the years it has gained a shining reputation for the variety of its top-quality presentations and for its organization. This year’s line-up will have exciting acts such as Bellstop, Bill Durst, Black Joe Lewis, Chloe Albert, Coig, Doc MacLean, Genevieve Chadwick, J.R. Shore, Jr. Gone Wild, Little Miss Higgins, MonkeyJunk, Rolla Olak, Rose Cousins, Samantha Martin, Shad, Tanika Charles & The Wonderfuls, The Sheepdogs, The Souljazz Orchestra, The Stone Foxes, The Strumbellas, Tim Hus and many more. The festival began in 1992 as a small indoor event organized by the grassroots Shuswap Coffee House collective of the 1970’s and 80’s, which by 1991 had coalesced into the not-for-profit Salmon Arm Folk Music Society. The society’s main goals are to encourage and promote performers from all parts of the world (with a special emphasis on Canadian talent), and to introduce

audiences to the world’s incredibly diverse genres of music, musical instruments, and the artists who play them. The Festival takes place on the third weekend of every August at the Salmon Arm Fairgrounds, a picturesque 18-acre park in the centre of beautiful Salmon Arm. At night, two stages run simultaneously. TD Main Stage is at one end of the grounds where you can catch the headlining acts. The dynamic Boogie Barn Stage lies at the other end, pumping out live beats for the dancers in the crowd. During the day, six stages run concurrently featuring different genres of music including Blues, World, AltRoots, Folk, Dance and many others. Roots & Blues is kid-friendly, with a Family Fun Zone offering loads of things for kids to see and do, including a Family Stage with a line-up geared towards children. Kids 12 and under are admitted free of charge. Other amenities include a Global Food

Salmon Arm Fall Fair

Fall is a lovely time of year here in the Shuswap, especially the Fall Fair weekend. The sights, sounds and smells of the fair are an unparalleled recipe for fun times and happy memories. There is a sense of camaraderie among the contestants who vie for coveted blue ribbons, friends enjoying each other’s company as they stroll through the displays, and happy squeals from youngsters as they whirl around on the midway rides. But the most important aspects of the fair, its very heart and soul, are the display and competition of agricultural

products, domestic livestock, photography, and home arts. That focus has not changed since 1897. This is more than just an event the public pays to see or hear; it is one in which every person of the community can become part of by entering an exhibit. In keeping with the traditions of North American agricultural fairs, it has, since its inception in 1897, brought the people of the Shuswap region together to celebrate the community. At this yearly event where livestock, garden and field produce, and handiwork take centre stage, it’s obvious Salmon Arm is still very much a proud farming community. It all takes place at the Salmon Arm Fall Fair grounds September 5, 6, & 7. www.salmonarmfair.com

Salmon Arm recreation

Vacationing in the Shuswap lends itself to outdoor activities but sometimes it’s fun to do something active indoors (maybe it’s raining or you’re nursing your sunburn!) Salmon Arm has public facilities for swimming, skating, and racquet sports as well as numerous privately-owned fitness gyms and clubs that offer classes in everything from boot camp-style workouts or martial arts to yoga and dance. Racquetball and squash courts are open seven days a week at the SASCU Recreation Centre, and are fully air conditioned. The SASCU Recreation Centre Pool has a 297 person capacity so you can swim with 296 of your closest friends. There’s a wading pool and a hot tub. You can also book the pool for birthday parties. If you want to see what’s available for drop-in sports (fun stuff like pickle ball or badminton) or information about hours or court rentals, phone Salmon Arm Recreation at 250-832-4044.

Shuswap Lake offers a natural serene and idyllic beauty that attracts visitors and tourists year after year. Over 500 streams and lakes contribute to Shuswap Lake which has a surface area of over 300 square miles and an average depth of 132 meters. It is really a joint lake system consisting of four arms, forming a shape somewhat like the letter ‘H’. Although the entire lake is known as Shuswap, one of these ‘arms’ is specifically called Shuswap Lake and the others are Seymour Arm, Anstey Arm, and Salmon Arm. Mara Lake is also part of the system. Some visitors prefer to find themselves in more solitary areas for some tranquille kayaking and canoeing; others might like the companionship of family and friends on a houseboat or the excitement of water sports. You can find it all here.

Canoe Beach

Gardom Lake

Gardom Lake is popular for a few reasons. It’s a lovely swimming lake and a favourite with fishermen, canoeists and kayakers, birders and naturalists. One of the reasons for this is the ten-horse power motorboat limit, making it a peaceful spot for humans and wildlife alike. Gardom Lake is heavily stocked with both rinbow and eastern brook trout and the catch success rate is high. The day-use park features picnic tables,

Canoe Beach is–bar none–the busiest spot in the Shuswap on a hot sunny day. It’s not just that it is the closest beach to Salmon Arm; it also has a long sandy beach, lots of grass, a beach volleyball court (feel free to join in!), a boat launch, a playground, roped off swim area, a group shelter for large gatherings, and a concession. And then there’s the spectacular view of Bastion Mountain. The shallow water close to the sand makes it ideal for families with small children, and the abundant shady spots make it pleasant for those who don’t like it so hot. There is some playground equipment to add to the fun. Close by there are baseball diamonds and the Park Hill trail system. These trails are perfect for hikers and cyclists. Canoe Beach is 10 minutes east of Salmon Arm and is easy to find. Turn off the Trans Canada just past the golf course and go-karts onto 50 St NE. Keep

on this road until the end, turn left and drive one kilometre along Canoe Beach Road. There are plenty of signs and ample parking.

Shuswap Lake

outhouses, and a playground. Sorry, no pets are allowed. The lake also features several floating docks and an island with short interpretive trails featuring old growth trees, wildflowers, bird viewing (bald eagles, common loon, and rednecked grebe), and painted turtles. There are trails on the two islands in the lake, along the shoreline, and across the road from the park. To get there: Drive east of Salmon Arm on Hwy 1, turn south on Hwy 97B and drive approx. 15.8 kilometres to Gardom Lake Road, and then turn right. Travel 3.5 kilometres and turn left onto Park Road. Proceed 0.7 kilometres to the park entrance and parking area on the left.

Everyone knows the Shuswap is the natural destination for vacationers who love being on the water, but you might not realize the Shuswap is a cyclist’s paradise as well. The diverse landscapes, the amazing trails that meander through the woods, and the miles of paved back roads make for a quiet, leisurely and memorable ride. There’s a cycle touring brochure available that gives more details for these routes. You can pick these up at any Visitor Information Centre or at the local cycling shops, where you can also find out about group rides organized by local mountain bikers and road cyclists. If you’re an avid road cyclist, try out some of the longer more popular routes: the White Lake-Notch Hill tour [42 km]; the Salmon Arm-Yankee Flats loop [64 km]; North Shuswap-St. Ives [84 km]; Eagle River Valley [26 km]; Sunnybrae-Canoe Point [36 km]; Blind Bay-Wild Rose Bay [51 km]; Armstrong area - multiple routes. Remember to give yourself a little extra time because you’ll want to stop and enjoy the scenery.

First Nations

How did the Shuswap get its name? It is the anglicized version of Secwépemc, a word that Europeans had a hard time pronouncing. The Secwépemc, or Shuswap people, have lived in the high plateau of south central BC for at least 4000 years. They represent a portion of a larger group known as Interior Salish people. The Shuswap were a semi-nomadic people, roaming through their vast territory of 180,000 square kilometres. Lakes and rivers were an integral part of their transportation, and salmon was a main-stay in their diet and economy. They used the natural resources–plants and animals–but were guided by their cultural tradition that they were keepers of the land. Native culture hinges on the belief that the land responds positively to care and respect. Generation after generation learned the ways of the elders through a rich oral history that continues to this day. You can learn more about some of the local First Nations by reading about their traditions and culture on their various

Horseshoe playing has no age or gender barrier. You may be young, or young at heart. Keep your heart healthy, remain fit and flexible, and active play will retard arthritis. Participation and fellowship is also important. The Salmon Arm Horseshoe Pitching Club has been around since 1977, and has an enthusiastic and active membership. Members enjoy traveling around to tournaments in the valley, around the province or further, to various championships. Anyone interested in horseshoes, whether a visitor or resident of the area, is welcome to join in at the pits next to the curling rink in Salmon Arm, 691 - 28 St NE. Practices are on Tuesday and Thursday, with tournaments on weekends. For information call president Doug Winslow at 250-832-8520 or Faith Juell at 250-832-9873.

This tall cascade of water crashes down the narrow twisting canyon and makes a beautiful backdrop for photos. [Photographers: use a wide angle lens to capture the whole falls. You will also want a tripod and polarizer. Come in the morning or late afternoon for best results]. The trail meanders through the canyon walls that rise high above Reinecker Creek, among moss covered oldgrowth forest. It’s an easy walk (10-15 minutes) so the entire family can enjoy.

2014 Shuswap Visitors’ Guide

Celista Estate Winery Canada’s most northern winery is located on the north shore of Shuswap Lake, nine minutes past Scotch Creek Provincial Park. Owners Marg and Jake Ootes come from a life in the Arctic to be vintners on their 160 acre farm, a story they’re happy to share with visitors. Their wines have won over 20 national and international medals including two gold medals in 2012, eight silver and nine bronze in 2010, 2011, and 2012. Vineyard and winery tours are available – check their website for days and times. Tastings are free, and you can enjoy a glass of wine with homemade bread and cheese on their patio. They overlook the spectacular Shuswap Lake at 2319 Beguelin Road, Celista. Open daily from mid-May 10:30 am-5:30 pm, or find their wines in most local liquor stores.

There’s plenty of variety of creamy and well-textured cheeses and other products. The cheese is made from milk from cows on their own farm. The cows are grass-fed only, graze on the pasture in the warmer months and have organic hay in the winter. Of course, you’re always welcome to stop by for a sample and enjoy great-tasting cheese. See how the cheese is made or watch their informative DVD on the cheese-making process. Their products are available throughout the area, or you can visit their store at 1470 50 Street SW.

NORTH & SOUTH SHUSWAP

North & South Shuswap

The South Shuswap region of BC includes the communities of Balmoral, Blind Bay, Carlin, Eagle Bay, Notch Hill, Skimikin, Sorrento, Sunnybrae, Tappen, White Lake and Wild Rose Bay. Heading over to the North Shuswap, you’ll find the communities of Scotch Creek, Seymour Arm, Lee Creek, Celista, Magna Bay, Anglemont, and St. Ives. No matter which of these places you visit, there are interesting and fun things to do. You can enjoy a quieter rural setting with the advantage of first-rate amenities, great shops, and a variety of places to eat. The Shuswap in general, as you may

know, has a disproportionately high number of talented writers, artists, musicians, out-door enthusiasts, history-buffs, and really friendly people. There’s coffee houses, art studios, museums, and trails. So you may want to spend your entire vacation sitting on the beach, or on the water, (which is really okay), or you may want to take in some of the many unique tourist shops attractions and events. The entire Shuswap region is home to (and we say this with complete confidence) the best trails in the entire world. In the South Shuswap alone there are over 20 trails ranging from easy kilometre walks to challenging hikes that afford spectacular views at the end.

The North Shuswap trails also range from easy to difficult and includes the ever-popular Copper Island trail.

NimbleFingers Festival

For the past 25 years music lovers have gone to Sorrento to enjoy one of the country’s finest bluegrass and old-time music festivals. The NimbleFingers Bluegrass & Old-Time Music Festival takes place August 23 from 11 am to 9 pm at the Sorrento Centre, 1159 Passchendaele Road, Sorrento. The festival is the culmination of two of weeks of workshops given by some of the top names in this genre. The workshops have become well known for the fun, friendly and non-competitive environment for everyone from beginners to advanced players, with ample opportunity for group learning, electives, organized jam sessions, and many other spontaneous activities. For more information on the workshops or the festival go to http://nimblefingers.ca or email hosts Craig Korth and Julie Kerr at havingfun@nimblefingers.ca

BC Association of Farmers’ Markets Best Small Market, 2013

In the summer, tourists come primarily to enjoy Shuswap Lake; in the fall, the attention is turned to the Adams River which has one of the largest salmon runs in North America. Every four years the Adams River has a dominant run and this year, 2014, is one; millions of fish come from the Pacific Ocean, where they have spent their adult life, to spawn and then die, completing their life cycle. The 1,076 hectare Roderick Haig-Brown Provincial Park in the North Shuswap encompasses the entire length of the Adams River (11 kilometres between Adams Lake and Shuswap Lake) and protects the spawning beds of the sockeye, chinook, coho and pink salmon. The Adams River Salmon Society presents ‘Salute to the Sockeye,’ running from October 3 to October 26, with various vendors on site and an interpretive centre to enhance your knowledge of this amazing phenomenon.

FOOD & DRINKS

eat • drink • be merry • spirits Vacations are supposed to be decisionfree. It’s time to let the brain relax and just let everything go with the flow. There is one exception of course - meal time. Do you go back to your favourite restaurant or try a new one? Do you order the same thing you had last time or try something totally new? The locals have seen visitors engage in this debate many times. To be perfectly honest, Salmon Armenians go through this same process on a regular basis.

The problem (if it is problem) is that there are so many great restaurants, it’s hard to decide where to go and what to have. There are ethnic restaurants with savoury tastes that are irresistible to a discerning palette; restaurants that specialize in home-style soups, salads and desserts – comfort foods for soul and body. You can get specialty coffees, English-style hot tea; locally brewed beer; and award-winning local wine. There is fine dining and casual dining, and all our Shuswap restaurants have an ambiance that effuses welcome by effi-

ciency, courtesy, and genuine warmth. It’s no wonder locals love their local restaurants, pubs and coffee shops with poignant loyalty. Here is some general guidelines that Salmon Armenians try to follow themselves: If you have gone to the same place four times within a 72 hour period – do try a new place. [Remember: you can always go back to your favourite place again.] If you have had the same meal four times within a 72 hour period – be daring and try something new on the menu. [Remember: you can always order your favourite meal to go and eat it later.]

In January 2014, over 400 professional Canadian chefs took part in survey to rate the popularity of a variety of menu items and cooking methods to identify hot trends and up-and-comers. ‘Comfort food’ was listed as the number one menu trend. For example, chefs gave examples such as chicken pot pie, meatloaf, and roasted chicken. In other words, what people are looking for is the convenience of eating out with the taste of Mom’s good home cooking. Maybe that would explain why Salmon Arm has a higher than average number of restaurants – because local chefs were the trendsetters. It’s a well-known characteristic of local restaurants to offer those tasty come-back-for-more dishes in a warm, friendly setting. In that same survey, chefs noted that food-alcohol pairing was right up there in growing trends. You might be good at this already, but if not, here is a general guideline. • A good pre-dinner choice to serve with hors d’oeuvres is sparkling wine – an aperitif to stimulate the appetite. • Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Gris for easy-

drinking whites • Riesling for food-friendly white • Beaujolais for light, easy-drinking red • Pinot Noir for food-friendly red • Tempranillo or Cotes du Rhone for smooth, down-the-middle reds Ask your server to recommend some local wine (or beer). Local wine also makes a great gift for friends and family who didn’t get to come on your awesome vacation – you can take a taste of the Shuswap back to them!

Restaurants have been around forever. Well, almost forever. The concept of selling food for profit goes back to ancient civilizations, including ancient Rome and China, where street vendors sold bread and wine to people in cities. Fast-forward several centuries to the Middle Ages and the roadside inn is the earliest form of our modern day sit-down restaurant. Of course, the menu choices were strictly chef ’s choice and patrons had no choice but to dine family style. The French Revolution invented fine dining. After Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette lost their heads during the French Revolution, the French aristocracy crumbled and chefs, once employed by noble households, found themselves out of a job. So many of these displaced workers decided to open up their own establishments and offer prix fixe meals to the masses. Eventually the French style of dining out spread to Great Britain and across the Atlantic to the New World.

The world’s largest restaurant is in Syria. Bawabet D i m a s h q Restaurant, which translates to Damascus Gate Restaurant, has 6,014 seats and is lo cate d in Damascus, Syria.  The world’s oldest restaurant is in Spain. According to the Guinness Book of World Records, Botin Restaurant in Madrid, Spain is the world’s oldest operating restaurant, which has been in business since 1725. However, there are other restaurants that claim to be older than Botin, including Stiftskeller St. Peter in Salzburg, Austria, open since 803 and Zum Franziskaner in Stockholm, Sweden, open since 1421. Local restaurants have no such claim to antiq-

uity but they are all equipped with newer innovations such as washrooms. The world’s most expensive burger costs $5000. There are plenty of expensive burgers out there. The 666 Food Truck in New York City offers a burger with truffles, foie gras and Himalayan salt for $666. Paris, Las Vegas offers a $777 Kobe beef burger, which contains a Maine lobster, caramelized onions, imported Brie cheese, crispy prosciutto, 100-year aged Balsamic vinegar. But the most expensive burger? It goes to Fleur de Lys at Mandalay Bay, Las Vegas, which offers an astounding $5000 burger. Think of all the money you can save buying a burger at a local restaurant.


According to relationship counsellors, texting while dining has become a major issue among couples. Non-texters feel neglected and texters feel disconnected from their world if they are made to stop. Some big-city restaurants have voluntary lock boxes where diners can ‘opt out’ of this divisive distraction by having their gadgets locked away for the duration. That seems a little drastic, but the controversial question remains. While you’re here in the Shuswap, it’s important that everyone has a nice vacation so without getting into the pros and cons of the argument, here’s some advice for both sides. For texters: Don’t let them think you’re ignoring them–make your texts all about them. When they start to grumble say, “Hey I’m just looking up interesting facts about Shuswap dining.... And here’s your cheat sheet: 1. The Shuswap has the best dining selection per capita west of the Red River. 2. The most popular day to eat out in the Shuswap are Saturday and Sunday because most people have to work 9-5 Monday through Friday.

3. Pepperoni is the most popular pizza topping in the Shuswap. 4. The Shuswap is home to several awardwinning wines and beer - “Let’s order some!” 5. Orange doesn’t rhyme with any other word and neither does Shuswap. 6. The 57 on the Heinz ketchup bottle represents the number of varieties of pickles the company once had. It is also the number of meals you can have here that taste good with ketchup. 7. The first soup was made of hippopotamus [The earliest archeological evidence for the consumption of soup dates back to 6000 BC and it was hippopotamus soup!] No word rhymes with hippopotamus either. For the non-texters: If your should-be interlocutor is texting about work here’s some things you can try: “Let’s have a race: You’re out there making money. I’ll bet I can spend faster – hand over your credit card, honey.” Actually, that’s the only one you need; it works every time. Bon appetit!

ENDERBY Enderby

2014 SHUSWAP VISITORS’ GUIDE 36

Enderby is small but wonderfully dynamic city. You can find antiques, local art and crafts, and historic books all within a few blocks. If you pick up one of their city maps, you will see by the ‘legend’ that there is lots to see and do no matter what season: golfing, hiking, biking, swimming, tube floating (really popular), water skiing, canoeing, kayaking, fishing, x-country skiing, snowmobiling, camping, and of course, shopping. If you’re a hiker, don’t miss the challenge of the Enderby Cliffs. It’s a steep climb but well worth the effort when you see the view. But water is the real draw throughout the summer. Besides the river, which becomes somewhat of a tubing highway, there are many lakes in the surrounding area: Mara, Mabel, Rosemond, Gardom, and Hidden Lake that all have their own particular charms. While you’re in Enderby, be sure to stop

at the museum. It’s got all kinds of fun things for kids to see and do and displays that will keep everyone entertained. The open air market in the south end of the city has become something of a legend around the Shuswap as one of the biggest and most eclectic markets in the entire area. And Enderby can boast being home to the largest drive-in screen in North America. There is always one of the latest block buster hits and a trip to the drive-in is the quintessential summer experience.

Courtyard Gallery

Be sure to visit Enderby’s Courtyard Gallery, a lovely space filled with even lovelier art and sculpture. Over 20 artists are part of this artist cooperative and this spring they celebrated their first year anniversary. They

2014 Shuswap Visitors’ Guide

The Enderby & District Museum & Archives has a fascinating way of making history fun, with entertaining displays and hands-on activities for young and old. See the games and toys of yesteryear and what kind of tools the pioneer farmers and housewives used. In the archives there are plenty of old photos and newspapers along with material about the local Splatsin First Nation Band and facts about the area’s farming and forest industries. Museum volunteers are always willing to give you a tour of the museum or assist you with your research. If you want to enjoy the fresh air and sunshine, you can pick up a self-guided walking tour brochure at the museum, and learn about the historical buildings in Enderby. You can also visit the “Museum in the Park” at Barnes’ Park and check out some of the larger artifacts that the museum displays there.

2014 Shuswap Visitors’ Guide

Tuey Park The wide, sandy beach of Tuey Park is very popular with local swimmers. It is often referred to as “Waterwheel Park” due to the waterwheel and flume which were built in 1911 on the site to irrigate the surrounding farmland. Tuey Park is located on a bend in the Shuswap River at the north end of Enderby. The water at this point in the river is especially calm and shallow but swimmers are advised to keep a sharp look out for boats in the deeper main channel. There is a picnic area, washrooms, and an adjacent dog park for pet owners. It’s a perfect way to stay cool on those lazy hot days of summer.

Enderby’s Starlight Drive-In is the absolute ultimate movie going experience. It’s more than just being able to watch a blockbuster movie (actually two) on an incredibly big screen - it’s about enjoying it in the night air under the stars. [A few years ago a young couple from Calgary came to the Shuswap for their honeymoon because she loved the Starlight Drive-In so much!] Recline your car seats or bring some lawn chairs or blankets and place them in front of your vehicle. You listen to the movie soundtrack on any radio – a boom box, walkman, iPod etc. [Satellite radio can sometimes interfere with the radio broadcast so everyone is asked to turn them off]. The snack bar rightly boasts the lowest concession prices in BC. They have a full range of beverages, candy, popcorn, nachos, hot dogs and fries. To find out what’s playing or for more information, call 250-838-6757 or visit their website.

SICAMOUS

Sicamous

Sicamous is the Houseboat Capital of Canada but it is also known as a “recreation destination for all seasons”. This is not idle boasting. In fact, in the spring, Sicamous can offer all four seasons of recreation in the same weekend; you really can snowmobile, golf and houseboat in a 72-hour time frame. [This is actually not only a lot of fun to do, it makes for great boasting rights for years to come!] In the summer, the waters are full of houseboats because it’s the best way to view Shuswap Lake in all its natural glory. You’re with family and friends,

relaxed and unhurried as you travel around the lake in a boat that offers the comforts of home. Coming into Sicamous, nestled amid the Monashee Mountains on the shores of Mara and Shuswap Lakes, the beauty simply “wows” all who set eyes on this lovely spot. Come and enjoy a relaxing boating experience on the warm, pristine lakes. Fishing is great and a campfire on the sandy beaches is a great way to end the day. In town, there is a variety of restaurants and pubs to suit your palate, from coffee and ice cream to fine dining. The fall

belongs to the hikers and cyclists as the colour of the leaves and cooling temperatures entice outdoor enthusiasts to their adventures along the numerous Sicamous-area trails (over 20) that range from easy half hour loops to a 38 kilometre loop of rugged and difficult terrain and everything in-between. In Sicamous it’s always time to go “back to nature” by experiencing the sounds of nature while enjoying the trails.

Houseboating

How do you choose a vacation that satisfies the diverse interests and activity levels of the family? What if some family members crave rugged outdoor adventures, while others demand indoor plumbing and icy cocktails at sunset? The solution, in one word, is houseboating. A houseboat vacation serves up something for everyone, including fishing, swimming, waterskiing, kayaking, power boating or simply relaxing under the star-filled sky. House-boating is a three-season reality here in the Shuswap. July July 1 Canada Day celebrations There are several events and things to do throughout the day.

Malakwa Suspension Bridge

TCH East

Malakwa is known as the site of an exciting suspension bridge spanning the Eagle River. The bridge was originally built in 1915 to connect the farmers with the local community and school system. The bridge had to be rebuilt in 1940. Take the half hour walk to the bridge and you won’t be disappointed. To get there, take Malakwa Road (which is near the Malakwa Café) for 1.5 kilometres (1 mile) until you see the railroad tracks, turn left onto Summerville Husted Road, then go down the Malakwa Suspension Bridge Road to find a small parking lot and a sign pointing out the bridge.

North Fork Wild

Getting away from the lake for a bit, you can enjoy North Fork Wild, a spectacular 51.42 acres bordering the North Fork of the Perry River - a river carrying melt water from upstream glaciers. It was donated to the Columbia Shuswap Regional District (CSRD) in 2012. There is an impressive network of trails that wind through the land’s intact primary cedar and hemlock forests. The

Crazy Creek

Just west of Revelstoke on the Trans Canada Highway, you will find Crazy Creek Resort, a four-season resort with an amazing variety of attractions. Think of it as a premium base-camp for a perfect vacation for the entire family. First of all there are three large hot pools, geo-thermally heated and conditioned. The beautiful glacial blue water is pristine, clear, and sulfur-free. Be soothed, refreshed, calmed, and reinvigorated as you soak. Breathe the high mountain air as you gaze up at the

beautiful waterfalls of Crazy Creek in the midst of the splendor of the majestic Eagle Pass Valley. You will also enjoy the 240 ft. suspension bridge spanning the gorge directly in front of the waterfalls. The connecting boardwalks leading to the bridge also access public washrooms, a courtyard with a fountain, ice cream/snack shop, seating area and additional boardwalks with viewing platforms. This spot is a peaceful oasis of nature right beside the highway. Consider a relaxing weekend, or bring the ATVs for extensive riding on forestry roads and trails. The growth above Crazy Creek is surprisingly coastal with cedars, ferns and numerous waterfalls. From Crazy Creek Resort’s cabins, or from the hot pool parking lots, it is easy to access top notch hiking or quadding (or sledding) trails as Eagle Pass Mountain and Crazy Creek Gorge offer ideal terrain for touring. This is an affordable family get-away whether you’re looking for spacious fullkitchen accommodation cabins, or tenting sites in the trees. There is a convention centre meeting room that can be used for family reunions or celebrations. www.crazycreekresort.com

The Kids’ Tree Adventure was created especially for the wee ones and is sure to delight and inspire a new generation of Sky Trekkers.
