They are hosting a recruitment tea on Saturday, March 22, 11:30 a.m.–2:30 p.m. Drop by if you are interested in animal welfare and wish to help the owners help the donkeys. Many positions are available, from helping with special tours, gardening, special events, barn cleaning and donkey care. The successful volunteer is eager to help in any way and is willing to learn about the donkey charity and the work that it does. The refuge is located at 1125 Ptarmigan Road, Turtle Valley. Phone 250-679-2778 for more information or visit www.turtlevalleydonkeyrefuge.com. Photo contributed.

Making a difference

This February many Okanagan College employees were joined by students in volunteer initiatives in the community during the College’s Golden Day of Service. An enthusiastic group of ESLSAP learners volunteered to spend the afternoon with residents from Pioneer Lodge, sharing a little of their cultural background (pictured below). The residents were entertained by stories from Ukraine and Siberia, enjoyed watching a traditional Thai dance, and even tried on kimonos from Japan. Outings like this help new Canadians to practice English and develop friendships, while becoming more familiar with their new community. Once again Okanagan College is offering the English as a Second Language Settlement Assistance Program (ESLSAP); this is a free program for eligible newcomers to Canada. It is designed to help new Canadians overcome language barriers and get to know their communities through weekly English practice groups, field trips and one-to-one English tutoring. Registration for this program is ongoing and it is not too late to join the English practice groups for this year. For more information, please, contact Joyce Smith at Okanagan College at 250 832-2126 ext. 8250 or send an email to JLSmith@ okanagan.bc.ca. Photo contributed.

A healthy breakfast

We are often asked questions about nutrition in the practice as more people are realizing that diet plays a large part in determining the state of one’s health and wellness. My advice to my patients is to purchase a Vitamix blender and use it every day. They are a bit costly but as I see it, it’s an investment in your health. You can make your shake in a conventional blender; however, they generally aren’t powerful enough to pulverize everything, and quite frankly I’m not a fan of having to chew my smoothie. The Vitamix blends everything to a very fine-textured consistency and it’s fast. Provided you have the groceries on-hand required to give you a nutritionally balanced shake, making one is relatively quick and easy. My wife and I drink a vitamin- and protein-packed smoothie every morning before starting our day. These shakes are nutrient-dense and help maintain blood sugar levels, which in turn keeps you feeling full between meals and reduces food cravings. I will provide you with the grocery list you need to get started: • 1 Scoop Vega protein powder (we use berry flavour but you can use ‘natural’ instead if you like it less sweet) • 1 heaping tbsp (each) organic chia seeds, hemp seeds, ground flax seeds • 1 tbsp organic coconut oil • 1 whole organic carrot • 1 organic avocado (scooped out of its peel) • ½ organic banana • 2 cups organic coconut water (top the rest of your blender with filtered water) • Organic kale leaves

• Handful organic spinach • 1 organic celery stock • 1 small chunk of organic ginger (peeled) • Organic frozen berries (start with a few and add to taste) – remember, fructose is sugar and you want to keep your sugar intake to a minimum. If you are trying to get your kids to drink this, you may need a few more berries or an apple (cored), etc, to make it more palatable. It tends to come out of the blender looking green in colour, but it tastes great and it is very good for them! These ingredients are the base. We tend to utilize the list above plus whatever needs to be used up (for fruit & veggies) as we go. Experiment with different fruit – try mango, cherries, pear, blueberries, kiwi etc and find a flavor that suits you. Once the shake is blended and is the consistency that you like (if it’s too thick just add more liquid), pour into your glasses and enjoy. We fill our glasses half full then put in Vitamin D drops and top it with more shake. This is a brilliant way to begin every morning and will help keep you and your family nutritionally balanced. Remember, your health is an investment – what you put into it, you’ll get back. People tend to take their health for granted and then when it’s gone, they’ll mortgage the house to get it back. Don’t go there. Invest in your health now. Prevention is the key to wellness and it all begins with a nutritionally dense diet. Improve your health through chiropractic care. For more information about nutrition and other health topics contact Dr. Warren Gage at Harbourfront Family Chiropractic at (250) 803-0224.

Hypertension

Simple things that help prevent hypertension Hypertension is more common these days. But there are simple things that you can do to help prevent this condition. Losing weight and diet modification are effective ways of reducing blood pressure. Things to avoid are alcohol and smoking, as both increase the risk of hypertension and other diseases. Coffee and strong black tea also raises blood pressure, so restrict the amount of caffeine you consume. Salt (Sodium chloride) can increase blood pressure. In countries where there is less consumption of salt, the incidence of people with hypertension is also lower. Reducing sodium intake lowers blood pressure in people with hypertension, as well as in people with borderline high blood pressure. It takes a few weeks to see results, and over several years of restricting salt there are even more positive effects. Most doctors recommend restricting salt to one teaspoonful per day. In cases like during hot weather, long hours working out, strenuous activity, diarrhea, or people on certain medications, one should restrict salt intake only after talking to your physician. Sometimes reducing sodium may make one feel giddy, causing accidental falls, so before reducing salt intake it is best to talk to your physician. Walking: Studies have shown that walking for 10 to 15 minutes three or four times a day is a healthy habit. Walking is associated with not only lowering the risk of getting high blood pressure, but also in helping to control this disease. Walking on cobblestones, or wearing acupressure sandals, is also helpful. Meditation: Scientifically, regular meditation has shown to decrease blood pressure and improve overall general health. Mental states can markedly alter physiologic function. For example, stressful situations result in an increased metabolic state, which increases heart rate and blood pressure. Meditation is accompanied by a decreased metabolism, leading to a decrease in the breathing pattern, decreased heart rate and decreased blood pressure. Diet plays an important role in the prevention of high blood pressure. I will be discussing hypertension-friendly foods shortly. Readers with enquiries may contact Kosha Vaidya via email at koshahealing@gmail.com.

Business alliance to battle MMBC recycling fees

Jeff Nagel, Black Press An alliance of business groups opposed to the new Multi Material BC recycling system are demanding the province halt the planned May 19 launch and go back to the drawing board. MMBC, an industry stewardship group, is poised to take responsibility for curbside blue box collection – with more containers and material types collected than before – while charging businesses for the recycling of the packaging and paper they generate. But it’s been in a bitter fight with small business groups that complain they are set to pay punishingly high fees, which will then be passed on to consumers. The battle took a new turn Monday, when the Canadian Federation of Independent Business and eight other associations launched a campaign in B.C. newspapers and online at rethinkitbc.ca to amplify the pressure on Victoria. CFIB provincial affairs director Mike Klassen predicted job losses and some business closures as a result of the MMBC regulations and fees. “This is public policy run amok,” he said. “We are asking British Columbians to talk to the B.C. government to push the pause button on its reckless and red tape-laden program.” B.C. Agriculture Council vice-chair Stan Vander Waal said farmers can’t readily stop packaging strawberries and blueberries in plastic clamshells, because retailers insist that’s what consumers want. “We have to wear the cost,” he said, adding MMBC fees will cost his

Chilliwack farm $60,000 to $100,000 a year. “It goes directly against growing agriculture.” Canadian Newspaper Association chairman Peter Kvarnstrom, who is publisher of a paper in Sechelt, warned the new system will be “catastrophic” to B.C. community and daily newspapers, resulting in job losses in an already challenged industry and reduced service to communities. The opposition groups say they support the aim of the program – to make generators of packaging pay to recycle it – but they dispute the fees and say multinational consumer goods firms like Unilever and Walmart control MMBC and are manipulating it to their benefit, not that of local businesses. Most of the fees for container waste are double or even quadruple what businesses in Ontario pay to a similar agency. Newspapers say they face a $14-million-a-year bite out of their operations because of the 20 cents per kilogram they will pay on newsprint, compared to less than half a penny in Ontario. They contend a high proportion of newsprint is already recycled in B.C. through blue boxes. Kvarnstrom said newspapers are considering options to create their own newsprint collection system – a move that could also deprive MMBC of newsprint revenue and undermine the program’s viability. Magazine industry reps also warned small B.C. magazines will pay not only for their own paper recycling, but will also effectively subsidize big U.S. mag-

“This is public policy run amok.”

azines like Harper’s or Vogue that will be exempt from MMBC fees on magazines mailed into B.C. Printers predict some orders will shift to presses in the U.S. or Alberta to skirt the fees, costing jobs in B.C. MMBC managing director Allen Langdon said MMBC’s higher fees are because they fully finance the program and ensure service for multi-family apartments and rural depots, in contrast to Ontario’s more limited focus on single-family homes. He said B.C.’s successful container deposit system also means there’s less recyclable material left here for container stewards to collect and sell, so fees have to be higher to cover the system costs. Langdon said no business is forced to join MMBC, adding groups like the newspaper industry are free to develop their own system. “If they think there’s a better way, I think it’s important they put it forward.” Environment Minister Mary Polak said most businesses are exempt from the fees if they have under $1 million of retail sales, generate less than a tonne of material or operate out of a single retail outlet, while generators of one to five tonnes per year pay flat fees of $550 or $1,200. She said property taxpayers will save money because MMBC will now pay for recycling collection that local municipalities previously paid. “The City of Richmond will save $1.5 million a year, Nanaimo will save just over $900,000 a year and the list goes on,” Polak said. “This is about shifting the costs from the property taxpayer to the people who produce the packaging and printed paper.”

Shoppers face higher prices through hidden fees

New recycling costs imposed by Multi Material BC will ultimately hit consumers through hidden price hikes, critics say. “The public is largely unaware of the money that will come out of their pocket and ultimately go back to manufacturers,” said Corinne Atwood, executive director of the B.C. Bottle and Recycling Depot Association. Unlike existing deposit-refund systems in B.C. on cans or electronics – which are subject to audits and transparent reporting – Atwood said MMBC can do what it wishes with its revenue, without accountability. “It’s a licence to print money,” she said. Atwood has lobbied for years to expand the deposit system to include milk cartons and other containers, from hair spray canisters to detergent bottles. She argues the refunds offered would ensure a high rate of recycling through depots, as with beverage cans now. “If you put deposits on things initially the consumer would pay a bit more, but the people who bring it back will get their money back,” she said.

Got ws? ne Email Lakeshore News at editorial@lakeshorenews.bc.ca

Instead, she said MMBC’s non-refundable fees on packaging generators will inflate prices with no recourse. “With a hidden fee you don’t know what it is and there’s no opportunity to get that back – then you’re genuinely taking money out of families’ pockets.” Atwood said she believes the government likes the new system because if MMBC fees drive retail prices higher, the province will collect more sales tax. Existing bottle depots may be threatened because MMBC will also collect refundable beverage

containers, she said, adding school teams and community groups that depend on bottle drives to raise money may also lose out if there’s less to collect. Other recyclers say they’re also losing out under MMBC’s system. The agency recently announced a consortium of waste firms that will handle the processing of containers that are collected. Urban Impact Recycling was one of the bidders that wasn’t selected and CEO Nicole Stefenelli said her firm will now have to restructure and potentially shed jobs as a result.

TONY WALTON DOESN’T USE SOAP FOR CARPET CLEANING When I need carpets cleaned, either at home or in apartments I manage, I call Tony Walton. His unique method uses technology called an Ion Exchange process. It dries in about two hours. All equipment is portable, which means there are no hoses hanging out windows or balconies, and no doors propped open. The Cleanpro Carpet and Upholstery Cleaning system uses organic, biodegradable and eco-friendly cleaning products with no residue. A neutral ph is maintained at all times and only needs 10 to 12 litres of water to clean an average three-bedroom home. All products used are manufactured in Kelowna. His number is 250-515-4477. HOW DO YOU CLEAR A HOME OF SMOKE SMELL? Recently I had the challenge of clearing a home of smoke smell after the interior was washed with soap and the carpet had been shampooed. Google found a formula to remove smoke smell: mix one cup vinegar, two cups warm water and a scoop of baking soda. Walls and surfaces were washed, but the smell remained. I bought a litre of Clearoma odor treatment and followed a four-step treatment. All surfaces, walls, windows and lino were washed and rinsed, and they released a lot of grey. The sprayed ceiling could not be washed. Smoke smell remained, but it wasn’t as strong. I called Tony Walton, explained my problem and he came later in the day. His Cleanpro carpet cleaning took the smell out of the carpet. Tony had brought a fogging machine, loaded it with the organic cleaning formula, and let it work on the ceiling and nooks and crannies. It filled the place so full that it triggered the smoke alarm. It worked! The next day there wasn’t a hint of cigarette smoke smell. HUNGARIAN FARMERS GOT RID OF GMOs Issues magazine has a picture of a Hungarian farmer and quotes him on how they got rid of Monsanto: “We burned the GMO crops and banned them forever… the opposite of what America does.” ATTEND A. A. MEETINGS FROM YOUR HOME All recovering alcoholics, or anyone with a desire to stop drinking, with a Flash 7 (or above) enabled browser can attend online meetings. The site wwwaaonline.net has open “facsimile” real time A. A. topic meetings for alcoholics on the worldwide web. It has 38 online Alcoholics Anonymous meetings per week and plans to add more. Approximately 55 to 85 people flow through

the room during any one meeting. Average attendance per meeting is 62. You will need a password to enter a chat room. SALMON ARM IS IN KRAFT HOCKEYVILLE We made it, folks! Shaw Centre was one of eight rinks chosen for Western Canada. I’m amazed at the number of times we can vote online or phone. Some people sat at their computer and voted hundreds of times in just over two days. Tomorrow night, March 15, the top two rinks for east and west will be announced and then we can start voting for two days for the best in east and west. The grand prize winning community will be announced on April 5. The other 15 arenas will win prizes too. SEND ME YOUR STORY TO HOCKEYVILLE IF IT HAD A PASSION FOR HOCKEY Having been a judge for various events over the years, I’m pretty sure the community with the highest marks was placed on the top of the list. Is that why our Shaw Centre was on top of the eight winning rinks in the west when they were announced on the website? During judging, the in-house panel at Kraft Hockeyville marked each entry for originality (1/3), community spirit (1/3) and passion for hockey (1/3). Because Shaw Centre was at the top of the list, I believe stories from here stressed passion for hockey. That’s what I stressed in my story, from playing hockey in a country school in Saskatchewan, to playing hockey in Dawson City, to writing about SilverBacks in my column, and cheering the team at games. If your story showed a passion for hockey, please send it to me. sallys1@telus.net. I will use one story and the author’s name in the March 28 column. MY SINCERE APOLOGY I wish to apologize to the Simonson family for writing about their family in last week’s column without their permission. I made serious errors in content and judgement. This was very insensitive and disrespectful, and I am truly sorry. IF YOU LIKE ANNE MURRAY’S VOICE YOU WILL ENJOY LAURA GILLESPIE’S Laura Gillespie will be at SASCU Rec Centre with Snowbird, a tribute to Anne Murray, on Sat., March 29 at 7 p.m. Backed by a five-piece band, she will present a cavalcade of non-stop hits with footage that will instantly transport you through the life and times of Anne Murray. Her circuit will take her to points between Vancouver

Island and Trail in the Kootenays. Tickets are $38 with taxes, available at the front desk of the rec centre. Cash only, please. BEGIN OUTDOOR BURNING TOMORROW If you have a lot that is one acre or larger and if you live within a designated burning area in the City of Salmon Arm, you can start backyard cleanup burning tomorrow. First you will need to buy a permit for $10 from city hall or the fire department. You can burn during the next 31 days, March 15 to April 15. TONS OF JUNK EMAILS COMING MY WAY Last week I began to receive junk e-mails. I moved them to trash unopened, and they are decreasing in number. MyPix2.Com came every day. Others came once: 2014 Auto Clearance, Email marketing tips, CreditReportCenter, On/Amazon, Internet Phone, Quit Smoking, Discount Airfare, etc. Did hackers get into Telus’s customers’ addresses? I have OPTIK through Telus. Is that how they got my address? ENDERBY COUNCILLORS GET ART LESSONS Several artists from the Courtyard Gallery in Enderby attended a meeting of city council and requested a grant as they prepared to celebrate their first anniversary next month. Unfortunately, a grant was not possible. Councillor Greg McCune suggested each person on council might help them raise funds by creating a piece of art under the guidance of an artist, one-on-one. That takes place tomorrow, Saturday, March 15 between 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. in the studio space at The Falling Coconut located at 506 Old Vernon Road in Enderby. The masterpieces will be on display at the Courtyard Gallery from March 25 to April 25, and then will be auctioned at the anniversary celebration on April 25. www. courtyardgallery.ca START GIVING AWAY YOUR EXTRA STUFF If you are a person who has never given a thing to one of Salmon Arm’s three established thrift shops, I urge you to fill a shopping bag of stuff you no longer need and put it on the wooden box inside the door of the newest thrift shop next to Petro-Can, operated by Kindale of Armstrong. Your kids have left the coop; why are you keeping all the bath towels? You’re no longer entertaining, so why not give away your tablecloths? And the extra pillowcases, sheets, blankets, etc. sallys1@telus.net • 250-832-4831

Dogs sully beach

I am writing to express my concerns about the people who admitted recently [to me] that they meet their friends out of town at Canoe Beach and apparently run their large dogs on the beach without a leash and, as observed, do not clean up after their animals. I resent my neighbourhood being used as a dumping ground for some citizens and their dogs. Note: this was not the dogs’ leash-free park which is very close by.

RESP refresher

Last week the Junior Bean Counter described his Registered Education Savings Plan with the acronym ‘R-CM-P’. After correcting him on what the plan is called, we’ve decided to write an article reminding him and the rest of our loyal readers as to how the ‘R-E-S-P’ works. Here is an overview. • Parents and grandparents can create and contribute to a child’s RESP. In fact, this is a great gift idea for birthdays or Christmas instead of a cheap toy. Your child or grandchild will probably give you a funny look, but they will get over it and learn to appreciate it later in life. • The biggest benefit to the RESP is the “free” money the federal government throws in when you contribute some of your own. This is called the Canada Education Savings Grant (CESG). For every dollar you contribute, the CESG adds 20% to a maximum of $500 per year, per child, until the child reaches age 17. For example, to maximize the grant in a given year you would need to make

a contribution of $2,500 to receive the maximum basic grant of $500. If you miss a year or two of contributions, the government allows you to make it up with RESP contributions of up to $5,000 in a given year entitling you to a basic grant of $1,000. • If your family net income is lower than ~$87,000, you can qualify for additional CESG. The additional CESG is 10% of the first $500 if your net family income is between ~$43,950 and ~$87,900 for 2014. If it is below ~$43,950 then you get an additional 20% on the first $500 contributed annually. More “free” money! • Contributions for an RESP are subject to a lifetime maximum CESG of $7,200 per child. • Unlike RSPs, RESP contributions are not tax-deductible. However, investment income and gains generated within the RESP are allowed to grow on a tax-deferred basis; meaning it is taxable, but not until the income is withdrawn. • When RESP funds are used for

by Daron Mayes post-secondary education costs, the income portion earned will be included in your child’s taxable income. Normally this results in little or no tax as most students have a lower income and will be eligible for the tuition and education tax credits. • If your child doesn’t pursue post-secondary studies, the income and growth can be rolled over tax-free into your RRSP or a spousal RRSP, provided that contribution room is available. However, the CESG portion of the funds must be returned to the government. In summary, when the government is giving out “free” money or perhaps I should say a refund of all the taxes we pay; you want to take advantage of it. Besides, even though your child or grandchild thinks a Lego set is more valuable now; they won’t when they’re 18 years old and wanting to go to college.

My name and picture will be familiar to Lakeshore News readers but this column is not. For the past number of years Lakeshore News has published my bi-weekly column, Friends & Neighbours, and this week we’re launching an additional column, Blain’s Biz. This column will appear on the weeks when Friends & Neighbours does not. Blain’s Biz will feature local business news updates and various community events. On the business side we’ll report on things like new owners, business expansions, board appointments, and AGMs. But businesses are made of people, and this column will also highlight the personal side of businesses and organizations; we will report on employee milestones or promotions, awards, accomplishments, retirements and even birthdays or wedding anniversaries. Blain’s Biz is not meant to be a platform for free advertising but a way for the community to know what’s new in the business community and, perhaps more importantly, to provide an opportunity to know more about the people who run the local businesses, industry, non-profit organizations, and community events. Businesses and non-profit organizations can email their information to blainsbiz@lakeshorenews.bc.ca or drop information off at the Lakeshore News office, 161 Hudson Ave NE.

New owner takes over Jo McDermott (above) is the new owner of Java Jive as of March 1. Jo isn’t a stranger to the coffee shop as she has worked there since 2010. The basic menu at Java Jive will stay the same with a few changes. Currently there are gluten-free, dairy-free and vegan options available, and customers can expect to see those options expanded. She will also do more in-house baking. In fact, she says on evenings when she is working late in the kitchen, if small groups need a meeting space, she doesn’t mind them coming in after hours. Jo is proud of the eco-friendly reputation the coffee shop has and will continue to use the same environmentally friendly/compostable take-out cups and serve local coffee [Shuswap Coffee Company]. The hours will remain the same but may be extended in the summer and for jazz nights. Although owning a coffee shop is a new venture for her, Jo is well-known around the community in other capacities. Jo has served as president of the Shuswap Farm & Craft Market and sold her hand-made greeting cards at the market. She is also a piano teacher. Jo and her husband, David, moved to Salmon Arm in 2009. David works from home for a Calgary-based software company. They have a daughter, Natalie, who will be 2 next month. Jo was born in Edmonton and spent 12 years in the United States. She and her husband moved here because they wanted to “get away from the big city.” They chose Salmon Arm because David used to vacation in the Shuswap as child and loved it here. Java Jive staff members include Karen, Alicen, Jess, Nathalie.

Renovations coming along Renovations are coming along in the main building at Pedro Gonzales Fruit & Garden just west of Salmon Arm, and the Ruth family is hoping to have a ‘soft opening’ by April 1. Their grand re-opening will take place in May or June. Although work crews are putting the finishing touches in the main building, Pedros is still open for business with fruit, vegetables, plants and garden supplies set up in the side building and green house. Last week Dale Ruth was busy ordering stock using the green house as a make-shift office while other workers were organizing and Alison was potting rose bushes.

By Bev Christensen, Blind Bay Celebration committee All pioneer and present residents of Blind Bay are urged to mark July 18th and 19th on their calendar for the birthday celebrations of the early settlers of that area. Records show that 2014 is the 100th anniversary of the opening of the first school and post office in that community. Activities confirmed for the event include a tour of historic sites around the bay, an old-fashioned tea, publication of a book of Blind Bay pioneers’ memories, displays of memorabilia, art, quilts and photos, golf tournaments and a video based on the history of the Reedman family. Other events planned for the two-day celebration but not yet finalized are a community picnic, a homecoming dance, and horse and wagon rides. The committee is particularly anxious to contact pioneer residents of Blind Bay. If you are a pioneer of that area or know someone who is you can submit their name by email at info@ blindbay100.com. The celebration is being planned by a joint committee of the communities surrounding the bay: Cedar Heights, Blind Bay and Shuswap Lake Estates. Each community is organizing at least one event or activity. Other communities and organizations surrounding Blind Bay are also invited to participate and can do so by contacting the committee by email. Suggestions of other activities are still being sought by the committee and volunteers are needed to assist with some of the activities.

4H loan program

Community Futures Shuswap has expanded their 4H loan program to assist youth involved in regional 4H Swine Clubs. Through this new lending program, young farmers can access loans of up to $400 to purchase and grow a wiener pig to a market-ready age. The short-term loan is repaid when the pig has reached maturity and is sold at the annual 4-H Stock Show and Sale. Instead of charging interest on these loans, Community Futures Shuswap collects a 5% administration fee which is donated back to the participating 4-H clubs. In 2013 the 4-H Beef Lending Program saw eight loans be issued and repaid for a total loan value of $14,750. As a result of this partnership, just over $600.00 was paid to two local 4-H clubs to assist with their programming. For more information on this program contact Community Futures Shuswap at 250-803-0156 or visit www.futureshuswap.com.

want to know how to do something. “Push button one, then do this, then push button two.” So, my next effort is a section on the website and my Pinterest pages devoted to simplified task lists. And, for lack of a better title, they are “Linda’s Lists.” Here’s one:

RR HU

When I decided to write my book (Everyday Design Dilemmas: How to Take the Guesswork out of Decorating) I had to do a lot of quick learning about ebooks, and Kindle books, how to sell a book online, font sizes, image resolution, book formats and I even know how to work with zip files now. I learned how to set up a store on my website, got Pinterest going (oh boy....) and what Google Analytics can do for me. My graphic designer and I went back and forth, around the block and started all over again several times, but the work was worth it. The book is done, and I’m really quite proud of it. Have a sneek peek at everydaydesigndilemmas. com. I became a fan of the list format, too. I used to hate lists; now I am a convert. In an effort to simplify what I wanted to discuss in the book, I made pointby-point lists. I worked really hard eliminating needless words, to get down to the core of what I was trying to say. If I didn’t understand my subject well enough to make a clear, short and true list, I had more learning to do. Once I got the list done I would write, keeping the list points in mind, expanding on the theory and the whys and wherefores. But looking back at the lists, I realized they are valid all on their own. Make it simple, make it clear, and make it short. I like this kind of list. Sometimes we don’t want all the explanation and theory and whys and wherefores. Sometimes we just

While you’re not looking, this is what’s happening to BC’s world renowned recycling program.

Well, lookie here. One minute you have a perfectly good Blue Box recycling program. The next, something new and rather questionable is being put in its place. And they thought they’d get away with it right under your nose, without telling you or asking your opinion. That’s definitely not democracy in action. The BC Government, elected by us to represent our best interests, has decided to offload the costs of recycling to big multi-national corporations. To implement this new plan, they’ve set up an association that doesn’t really seem to hold the environment, local jobs, or the municipalities that run the Blue Box program, close to its heart.

Perhaps that’s why some of our local elected officials are using the word “scam” to describe how the new program is being set up. It’s also perhaps why several of BC’s municipalities refuse to jump on board. That’s gotta tell you something. Now it’s your turn to let Premier Christy Clark know what you think. Contact her today to say that dismantling an already-working recycling program to replace it with something that few people think will be as good, is a bad idea.

What’s going on here?

Email Christy Clark at premier@gov.bc.ca or call 250-387-1715. For more info, visit RethinkItBC.ca. #RethinkItBC. This Message is brought to you by:

Gold! It stirs the imagination, and for generations men have gone about seeking and searching for it, staking claims throughout the province, mostly in mineral-rich locations. A good part of BC history evolved around gold rushes beginning in 1885 on the Fraser River, when thousands of gold seekers bent on becoming rich, invaded Yale, Spuzzum and Boston Bar, where tent cities sprung up and paddle steamers plied the waters of the mighty river to Hell’s Gate. Here, the little paddlewheeler “Scuzzey” was pulled through, with iron pegs drilled into solid rock walls. Then the gold rush to the Thompson River began. But the First Nations had already found raw gold at Nicomen in black sand among the jagged boulders and rocks in jade-green water. This further enhanced the lust for the precious metal, where all along the Caribou trail right to Barkerville, namesakes like 100 Mile, and Lac la Hache still prevail. But even today, the Thompson River is a special place. Named after explorer David Thompson, the river carves its way from Kamloops Lake on a winding journey through sagebrush country and arid hillsides, then passes the hamlet of Spences Bridge, with its final destination being the confluence into the mighty Fraser at Lytton. It’s not only special for the scenery, but for the runs of salmon and steelhead trout that utilize the system, while migrating to their maternal natal streams in late summer and fall to spawn. But, like many indigenous species in trouble in BC, the steelhead is not doing well, and there are a number of reasons for this. Ocean survival: steelhead fry, along with millions of salmon fry, migrate to the ocean via the Fraser system, and many predators take their toll, including seals, sea lions, birds, sturgeon, char, trout, etc. Habitat loss/heavy irrigation draw down. Chum salmon commercial fishery: when adult steelhead return upriver, they tend to travel with chums in schools, on the lower Fraser, and are taken in nets. Many are released but there is mortality. Native gill net communal fishery: as many runs of steelhead remain in the mid Fraser River, they are caught in the many gill nets set out for the first Chinook salmon of the season. On the many patrols we carried out as fishery officers along

the banks of the river, good numbers of steelhead were retained for smoking or given to elders. Working with MOE, fisheries branch, one band (Cooks Ferry) is willing to help restore stocks, but will not interfere with Lytton band fishing methods. But the main crux of the situation boils down between a battle of provincial bureaucracy, to save what was once a world-class steelhead fishery and try to restore stocks to historic levels once again working with all concerned. This involved building a hatchery to enhance steelhead. Support for a facility involves Spences Bridge Community Association, City of Merritt, Village of Ashcroft, BC Federation of Drift Fishers, Kamloops and District Fish/Game Association, Kamloops Flyfishers, Nicola Valley Fish & Game Club, Cook’s Ferry Native band, Nicola Tribal Association, and BC Wildlife Federation (Region 3). Land was donated in Spences Bridge, and a backhoe is available with volunteers ready to go. But it’s bucking the trend that the Province’s Director of Forests, Lands and Natural Resources along with a steelhead biologist is not willing to budge from their position of interfering with wild stocks and low survival numbers. The bigger picture is that eggs and milt taken from brood stock can be raised to smelt (3-4 inch) and released in spring, at no expense to the province. Washington and Oregon both have bumper crops of hatchery steelhead return. The main reason for their limp excuse is poor ocean survival, and yes there are issues, and the province wants to maintain a “Wild River” stock, but records show that steelhead stocking of the Thompson River was carried out for 12 years from 1979 to 1991. Newer technologies in a small, modern hatchery would suffice to produce healthy robust stocks that would benefit a once world-class steelhead fishery and help boost the economy of Spences Bridge. If you would like to comment on the situation, write to Albert Nussbaum, Director Fish, Wildlife and Habitat Management Branch, PO BOX 9391, STN PROV GOV’T, Victoria, BC V8W 9M8.

Gloria

A story set in Santiago and centred on Gloria, “a woman of a certain age” who still feels young, and the realities of her whirlwind relationship with Rodolfo, a former naval officer whom she meets while dancing out in the clubs. Both are divorced; but while Gloria’s grown children become more independent in their own lives, Rodolfo is still very close with his two daughters and ex-wife, which leaves Gloria vacillating between hope and anxiety. Eventually she uncovers a new strength in her independence and realizes that, in her golden years, she can live with more “joie de vivre” than ever before. Starring Paulina Garcia, in a performance that won the Silver Bear Best Actress Award at this year’s Berlin Film Festival, Gloria was Chile’s official entry for Best Foreign Language Film at the 86th Academy Awards. Gloria shows at 5:00 p.m. on Saturday, March 15, at the Salmar Classic Theatre.

April 3, 1920 - Feb. 28th, 2014

It is with great sadness that we mark the sudden passing of Victor George Henry on March 1, 2014 in Salmon Arm. Vic was born in Talbot, Alberta on May 24, 1922. Although he spent most of his life in BC, the prairies meant a great deal to him.

Victor George Henry

Annie passed away peacefully at Talarico Care Home in Castlegar. She was predeceased by her husband David Lockerby and is survived by her brothers Bill and Karl Dalin of Celista; 8 children, Karen Webber (Brock Giles), Frances Lockerby, Beverley Poole (Don), Bernice Brockman (Richard), Linda Weberg (Kim), Christine Ransom (Ken), David Lockerby Jr. (Lisa) and Janice Avis (Doug); 16 grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren. Annie, the 2nd of 7 children, grew up in Celista on the homestead that was pioneered in the early 1900’s by her parents, Margaret and John Dalin. Annie had fond memories of her childhood despite the hard times of the Great Depression. She would often entertain us with her recollections of the “olden days” and had an amazing ability to recall an endless number of dates, ditties, poems and stories. In 1942 she graduated as an RN from Royal Inland Hospital in Kamloops, and worked in Chilliwack prior to her marriage to Dave in 1946. Soon after, they built a home in Celista and raised their family. Hard work provided a bountiful harvest to family and friends and never deterred them from attending a Saturday night dance. In retirement, they enjoyed travelling across Canada, the United States and overseas. In 1989, they moved to Kelowna to be closer to family. Dave passed away in 1990. Annie continued to reside in Kelowna until 2012 and then made her final move to Castlegar. As a widow, she was always in the loving presence of family. Annie will be remembered for her good, kind, dependable nature, sense of humour and common sense. She enjoyed gardening and preserving, photography, painting and needlepoint, bridge, crib, crosswords and scrabble, a good musical, a romantic novel, and was famous for her homemade bread, which she made well into her 80’s. A celebration of Annie’s life will be held at the Celista Hall on June 29, 2014 at 1:30 pm. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the charity of your choice or the Gospel Mission of Kelowna, the Salvation Army or the Kelowna General Hospital.

He leaves behind his loving wife Irma, his sons Don and Martin, daughters Vicki and Syndi, loving in-laws, grandchildren and great grandchildren, and many, many long-time friends. We will forever miss this amazing man. Vic and Irma were married in October of 1944. During those 69 years they worked together to build a life full of so many accomplishments. He believed in hard work and honesty. He loved to challenge himself with another project often related to the Salmon Arm Pioneer Club. A celebration of his life will take place at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Children’s Hospital or a charity of your choice. Online condolences may be sent through Vic’s obituary at www.bowersfuneralservice.com Arrangements are in the care of Bowers Funeral Home and Crematorium, Salmon Arm.

Sheila Anne Syme (Jewell) Sheila Anne Syme (Jewell) passed away peacefully February 23, 2014 at home after a long struggle with cancer. She was born April 19, 1959 in Salmon Arm and was the youngest of three to Roy and Shirley Jewell. She was a lifelong resident of Salmon Arm and loved the Shuswap. At an early age Sheila started work with her parents at the family business, Jewell’s Greenhouse, on Piccadilly until its closure in early 1990s. She met Bob in 1984 and got married the following year. Together they had two children and she became a stay at home mom to ensure her children were raised with the utmost amount of love. She valued her relationships with family and friends more than anything. Sheila loved her gardens. She loved growing things and she loved making her space beautiful with nature. Every year gardens were expanded, the lawns shrank and the flowers blossomed. When the crocuses would start to bloom, Sheila would be excited that another year in the garden was beginning. Throughout her three-year struggle with cancer, Sheila never gave up, she always maintained a positive attitude that cancer was not going to live in her body. The strength and courage she showed throughout the past three years inspired her family and friends. Most days, even after chemotherapy treatments, Sheila would be found in her gardens not allowing cancer to affect her daily life. Sheila was predeceased by her brother Ken Jewell (2005) and mother Shirley Jewell (2007).  She is survived by her father Roy Jewell, husband Bob Syme, sons Andrew Syme and Scott (Brittny) Syme, brother Terry (Betty) Jewell, in-laws Don and Jane Syme, closest friend Cindy Inglis and many nieces and nephews. A celebration of Sheila’s life was held March 3rd at Bowers Funeral Home; it was preceded by interment of cremated remains at Mt. Ida Cemetery. The family would like to extend the warmest thank you to the staff at Shuswap Community Care and to Dr. Chris Weiker for all their care and support. Online condolences may be sent through Sheila’s obituary at www.bowersfuneralservice.com

Booze at grocery stores in 2015

By Tom Fletcher, Black Press B.C. residents will be able to buy B.C. wine from grocery stores by early next year, with some stores connected to liquor stores that offer full selection including hard liquor. The provincial government released its framework for a major overhaul of liquor policy last Thursday. It proposes a small number of new licences for Vintners’ Quality Alliance (VQA) wine sales from grocery store shelves, with future expansion to include B.C.made craft beer under the same licences. Richmond-Steveston MLA John Yap said all alcohol sales will be rung through at separate cash registers, with staff trained in an expanded “Serving It Right” course to check identification and sobriety. Customers will be able to stock up on groceries and alcoholic beverages in the same shopping cart, whether from in-store B.C. wine or products from a connected liquor store. Changes to take effect by this summer include licensing B.C. wine and beer sale and tasting at farmers’ markets, permitting “happy hour” drink discounts at licensed businesses and removing

the requirement for fenced beer gardens at approved outdoor festivals. Yap said the government is adopting a recommendation from Provincial Health Officer Dr. Perry Kendall and other health officials to tie prices to alcohol content, in an effort to reduce over-consumption. The government plans to maintain its cap on the number of liquor stores, with 670 private stores now in operation. Liquor stores are currently restricted to relocating no more than five km from their original location, but that restriction is being lifted so a licence can be sold or moved anywhere in the province. Yap said that would allow either a government or private liquor store to relocate next to a grocery store. Another major change in the works is to wholesale pricing from the government’s monopoly Liquor Distribution Branch. Currently private stores pay a 16 per cent discount off the government store retail price. Yap said the LDB will move to the same wholesale price for all stores, based on the value of each product, and retail prices will be set by a competitive market.

Burning the candle at both ends again, Capricorn? This is not the best way to get things done. Take a more steady approach, and give yourself time to recover.

PISCES

Pisces, fight against the current for something you truly believe in. Unexpected events arise on Thursday.

ARIES

This week you need to be the follower instead of the leader, Aries. It may be difficult to go against your normal grain, but it is for the best. Keep an open mind.

TAURUS

Your confidence may wane sometime this week, Taurus, but some friends will boost your morale to help you get back on your feet. Saturday will be a big day.

GEMINI

Gemini, certain things that have to get done this week are out of your realm of expertise. Do your best to tackle these projects but have a helper on hand just in case.

Cancer, you have a lot on your plate, but you don’t know where to start. Make a list of your tasks, and it will help you better tackle one thing at a time until you are all done.

LEO

Leo, learn to laugh at yourself as a means to relieving stress. Things can’t always be serious, so lighten up and take some time to relax. Work with Virgo this week.

VIRGO

Give yourself a much-deserved break, Virgo. You’ve been working nonstop for the last several months, and now is a great time to take a vacation or enjoy a weekend getaway.
