“We are looking to the residents of the CSRD to come up with a name that will be used as the brand for all the yard and garden compost produced in the region,” says Columbia Shuswap Regional District (CSRD) Waste Reduction Facilitator Carmen Fennell. “We want to involve the community in the naming process because it’s the residents who have contributed the organics to be composted, and the name should mean something to the people who live here.” The name will be

used for all labeling and marketing of the compost being made at the Golden, Revelstoke and Salmon Arm Landfills. Several Regional Districts throughout BC make and sell composted organics using a brand, such as Ogogrow in Kelowna. The winner will be selected by CSRD Solid Waste staff, and first prize is an Apple iPad. The runner-up will be awarded an iPad mini. “We’re really excited to be finally ready to sell compost. It’s been a long time coming and we’re hoping to see lots

of interesting, catchy and fun naming ideas come forward from the residents of the CSRD. We encourage teachers to involve their students in the contest as well.” Although it is only yard and garden waste now the CSRD has plans to begin composting food waste. “It’s in the Solid Waste Management Plan to look for ways to increase the diversion of organics, and certainly food waste is a major contributor.” The composting process was carried out following the strict guidelines of the Ministry of

Environment Organic Matter Recycling Regulation, to ensure all quality and safety standards have been met. “The CSRD compost is a Class A compost, and has been lab tested to ensure all quality criteria have been met to enable the distribution of the compost to the public.” The contest started at the beginning of February and runs until March 2.

I always enjoy Heritage Week. I suppose some people just view the displays of antiques in the mall as “old junk,” but to me, even the broken pieces have a story. I like to look at everything in the displays and think about how it was used and who the people were that used each item. An old metal lard bucket makes me think of an aproned lady working over a hot, wood-fueled baking oven, or a young lad going off to school with a lunch packed in the same bucket. Looking at the patina and wear on an old hand tool makes me wonder how many times it was held and used and what kind of products it repaired

or built. Maybe I saw too many Little House on the Prairie episodes in my youth, but I love the nostalgia of bygone days. Our world is changing so quickly that it doesn’t take much of a look back to see a world completely different from the one we live in now. Earlier this week, as I photographed the amiable ladies at the Spinners and Weavers display, I posed the question to them as to what Salmon Arm was like in the sixties and the chatter quickly started. They would mention businesses that no longer stood or had moved. Hotels that stood right beside McGuire Lake on land that is green space now.

Comments on stores and the people who worked in them were interspersed with descriptions of how certain areas around town had looked at the time. My own recollections don’t go back that far, but I have fond memories of following my mother around the grocery stores as she did her weekly shopping. First stop was Askews, and then the one where the Honda building now stands – I believe it was Super Valu. I remember the big water tank on Tank Hill, and the apple orchards on both sides of the highway. At night, the many lights of town always shone so bright and full of colour and I always was excited to see them as my father would drive down the hill and into town. Of course these days there are even more lights spreading out in the distance as I drive down that same hill, and I still love the sight of Salmon Arm at night. During my school years, there was the Motor Hotel and the Shuswap Inn. These buildings still stand but with other businesses now occupying them, and other hotels have been built. We had pool halls and arcades – rare businesses in this day and age, and ones that I must admit I really miss. My own pinball

The Shuswap Garden Club hosted their first Gardeners’ Day on Saturday, February 15th. This event brought out interested gardeners from throughout the interior. An excellent day for presentations and demonstrations with several vendors displaying their books, seeds and homemade garden implements. President Larry Viers welcomed all the visitors and presenters, outlining the activities for the day. The first speaker was Eric Reynard, a local landscape architect and college instructor whose topic was “Landscaping for Dummies.”–an interesting talk for that beginner gardener. He also instructs several courses at the local college. Following Eric, Hanna & Hanna Farm Market’s Harriet Hanna demonstrated the very popular “fairy gardens.” These tiny gardens can be used in the home, patio or your garden. Interesting tiny ornaments inserted into your arrangements can inspire the very young, and encourages anyone to participate in gardening. Next up was Dave Weatherill from Briteland in Vernon, who described all the pesticides, and other products that are used and recommendations for best practices and outlined the new regulations in B.C. Leslie Welch, a Master Gardener from Kamloops and a very knowledgeable gardener, spoke about

soils–how to test your soil, the additives to improve soils for your garden, and the preparation for planting and also composting. Brenda Sandon, another Master Gardener from Kamloops, did a presentation on small-space gardening. The square-foot gardens can be used in any area and for any size garden. Ken Fraser from Heartwood Carpentry demonstrated a “DIY” trellis. He brought along his tools and described how to cut and assemble a trellis. At the end of the day everyone went to Mayfair Garden where there was a tour of their greenhouses and their planting processes were displayed. The Shuswap Garden Club wishes to thank all the participants and sponsors: Askew Foods, Buckerfield’s, H204U and SASCU. The next meeting of the club will be February 27th at the Scout Hall at 7:00 p.m. Any interested gardeners are welcome to attend and join the club; many activities are planned for the coming year. Their annual plant sale will be on May 3rd, with a huge number of donated plants. The annual flower show at Piccadilly Mall will be held on July 12th, and there will be weekly garden tours throughout June and July. For more information phone Larry at 250-832-6342 or Kathy at 250-8322028.

machines get a lot of use, in reminiscence of a time when games actually had moving parts. One fine business that still exists from my youth and looks almost exactly the same inside and out is The Matchbox. I remember much time spent browsing their vast selection of magazines as the sweet scents of the various pipe and cigar tobaccos fancied my nostrils. At that time I attended what was then the senior high school, now Jackson Campus. Just near the centre of town by the tracks was Newnes Machine and on the other side of town was a McDonalds, which is now the Re/ Max and the then-newly constructed water slides were on the very edge of town. Only Petty’s Meats was beyond, on that side. Of course our history is so very important, and that is why it’s good to support R. J.Haney Heritage Museum to the best of our ability. One fun and tasty way to do this is to attend the pie contest and auction at the Mall at Piccadilly this weekend. Last year several pies sold for more than a thousand dollars each, and it sure was fun to watch the action and the amazed

looks as the bidding grew furious. If you can’t afford to pay $2500 for a pie, you can still do your part by purchasing a delicious slice for a much smaller fee, and then make sure to take some time to wander around and check out the various heritage displays throughout the mall.

For seniors, maintaining proper body balance while walking can be a formidable challenge and a cause for concern. The elderly tend to fall more often due to inability to balance their body properly. In fact, falling is the most common cause of injury in the elderly. About nine per cent of seniors over 65 have this problem. People feel unsteady, or as *RESULTS VARY FROM PATIENT TO PATIENT. if they are in a moving train, or spinning or floating.

of other health problems, such as a stroke or multiple sclerosis. Treatment for this problem includes treating the underlying disease. Certain exercises can help to balance body properly. In patients with BPPV, calcium crystals can be dislodged in the inner ear, causing dizziness. These stones can be removed by a professional otolaryngologist or ear, nose, and throat surgeons. People with Ménière’s disease can reduce their dizziness by reducing salt intake, alcohol and caffeine. In some case taking antibiotics may be effective. Many people experience vertigo and dizziness in a severe form and seek medical advice for it. However, people with minor symptoms may not seek advice. If one experiences even the slightest dizziness, it is preferable to talk to one’s doctor and treat it early. Even a slight loss in coordination and imbalance can make you fall, leading to serious or life-threatening injuries. Winter is the time when one has to be extra careful. Be careful and take precautions. Readers with enquiries may contact Kosha Vaidya via email at koshahealing@gmail.com.

Pain and weather changes

Many people who suffer with arthritic joints will often report that inflammatory symptoms often worsen with changes in the weather. It is very difficult to scientifically investigate how joints change with different weather patterns; however, there have been a few studies that support the fact that many people experience increased pain in arthritic joints before a storm arises. There are number of theories on how these changes occur but the most likely explanation seems to be attributed to the expansion of fluids in swollen joints following barometric pressure changes in the environment. When a storm is brewing, the surrounding air pressure drops. In theory, this drop in pressure will cause a very slight expansion of fluids. An arthritic joint usually has excess fluid in the form of swelling, and when this fluid expands, it will stretch soft tissues and irritate nerve endings resulting in the sensation of pain. So, the message from this is that weather changes cannot cause pain directly; they only seem to aggravate inflammation that is already present in a joint. It should always be everyone’s goal to decrease underlying inflammation in the body whether or not a person reacts to changes in the weather. This is best achieved through good diet, proper supplementation, exercise and regular “self care.” Good health is achieved when people take the time to reduce the physical, chemical and emotional stressors in their environment. This may be achieved through regular chiropractic adjustments, massage therapy, acupuncture, physio therapy, yoga and any alternative care that reduces the stress we dump onto our systems every day. Remember: good health is a “journey” – there are no quick fixes. If you are feeling like a walking barometer and would like help reducing inflammation and beginning the journey back to better health, call Dr. Gage at Harbourfront Family Chiropractic at (250) 803-0224 for an assessment today.

Buy coffee, help the less fortunate

One of life’s simplest pleasures is a good cup of coffee. Now a cup of coffee from The Shuswap Pie Company does even more good as 25 cents from every cup, until the end of February, will support the work of the Safe Motherhood Project headed up by a group of local volunteers. “We’re inspired by the work of these women who travel to rural Guatemala to teach emergency birthing skills,” says Pie Company owner Mary Jo Beirnes. “Every dollar raised helps to improve care for pregnant

women such as the purchase of pre-natal vitamins, folic acid and iron supplements–things we might take for granted, like a good cup of coffee–here at home.” What’s more, the Shuswap Pie Company’s own coffee supplier, Voets Coffee of Vernon, was so taken by the initiative, they decided to match their donation dollar for dollar. For more information, please visit safemotherhoodproject.org or stop in for your cup of coffee at The Shuswap Pie Company.

Recognizing volunteers

By Alice Lewis The Seniors’ 5th Activity Centre recognized their many and faithful volunteers recently at a dinner and evening of appreciation (above). Sixty-plus volunteers enjoyed being served a sit-down meal as a small token of appreciation for the many, many hours they give in support of the growing senior population in our city. Fifth Avenue Activity Centre is a non-profit society which is managed and operated totally by volunteers. Our only paid employee is a janitor. Activities take place seven days a week, morning noon and evening,

and include cards, table tennis, pool, and dancing to name just a few, plus a hot, full-course noonday meal served five days a week. All of the activity coordinators plus the kitchen staff volunteer their time and their talents, not only providing the members with delicious nourishing meals but an enjoyable activity before or after their meal. Stop by the centre and pick up a schedule of events and a menu. You are welcome to give us a try and we feel sure that you will agree that a $10 yearly membership is the best deal in town!

Have your treasures appraised

Antique appraisals are coming to the 18th Annual Heritage Week at The Mall at Piccadilly. Heirloom Discovery Days will be held Thursday to Saturday, from 10:00 a.m.–4:30 p.m. Fully-accredited appraiser Peter S. Blundell, A. A., will view and assess your items for a fee of $14 + GST per item at the booth located by the Mall water feature. The public is requested to register at the appraisal booth when they arrive at the Mall and pick up a number, as items will be seen on a firstcome, first-serve basis during the day. There will be a limited number of items per person and the public is invited to come to watch the appraisals. Peter will perform informal verbal opinions of value and offer antique advice based on his experience in the

antique business and his array of reference books. Most antique and art items will be assessed, however every good appraiser has limits and Peter will not tackle jewelery, guns, coins, stamps and wristwatches. Large items such as furniture can be assessed by a loose piece of the item or drawer with the aid of a picture and measurements. Blundell is looking forward to coming to Salmon Arm and has experience with appraisals on the radio and TV and worked with the CBC Antiques Road show when it came to Vernon. The Mall portion of the proceeds from the appraisals will be going to R. J. Haney Village & Museum. For more information on the event contact the mall administration office at 250-832-0441.

Four-year-old Madison Cox suffers from a rare congenital disorder impacting numerous aspects of her physical development. She cannot walk or talk, has an underdeveloped cerebellum, and must be monitored constantly in anticipation of potential seizures or organ failure. As only one of four Canadians with this disease, Madison is not able to easily access treatment in this country, and American and European treatment is expensive and not funded by provincial health care. On Friday, February 28th, a bake

sale and silent auction fundraiser will be held at the Mall at Piccadilly in support of Madison and her mother’s trip to California for proper testing and consultation with specialists. Come out, treat yourself to some baking, bid on an item or two, and lend your support to Madison and her cause. Or, you may donate directly through TD Bank, account number 93660-0046331161. Watch for Madison’s full story in next week’s Friends and Neighbours column by Leah Blain.

SOUTH SHUSWAP CHAMBER FIRST OF ITS KIND IN BC

It’s Chamber Week in the Province of BC and what better time to introduce a one-of-a-kind chamber breaking ground here in the Shuswap. A revitalized chamber of commerce in the South Shuswap has no office. It depends solely on technology to conduct its business. In a cost-saving initiative, it has closed its office doors and uses phones, email and social media to communicate amongst the board and with its business community. Monthly directors’ meetings are held in local businesses and eateries on a rotating basis. After the chamber was dormant for most of 2013, Area C Director Paul Demenok and Robyn Cyr from CSRD collaborated on a revitalization project with Karen Brown, a fouryear resident of the area and former member of the Abbotsford Downtown Business Association and Chamber of Commerce. Recognizing that a change in directors and office administration might be necessary to generate fresh ideas and support, a new board representing all areas and business types in the region was struck and work began. In October, an informal wine-and-cheese was held, the chamber announced its reopening, and membership has climbed steadily since. The chamber will work to foster, promote and improve business development and tourism in the area through communications, advocacy, benefits and initiatives. The goal is to collaborate as a region while still maintaining each community’s unique character within the South Shuswap.

SOUTH SHUSWAP CHAMBER HIRES A MANAGER

After a hiring panel was struck by the board, Karen Brown applied and received the position as the new chamber’s general manager. Recognizing that business owners don’t always have the time to visit an actual office, Karen meets with potential and existing members out in the community. The chamber has a dynamic and engaging new website that is full of information: www.southshuswapchamber.com. Without the expense of an office, and as the chamber rebuilds its membership, the annual fee for membership has been lowered from $120 to $89 plus GST. “The chamber was sadly missed; there was no voice for business in our region,” says Karen. Brad Davies, president of the chamber and owner of The Lighthouse Market, adds: “With an injection of youth into the board, we are able to work towards short-term and long-term goals as a business community.” Part of Karen’s duties are educating the public on what a healthy chamber can do for a community. “In addition to providing networking opportunities and offering advocacy to businesses, in this region in particular, there is a collaborative need between the chamber and tourism and economic develop-

ment.” It’s for good reason, as Karen further explains. “Eighty per cent of the residents in the Shuswap were not born here. Out of that demographic, 80 per cent first came here as tourists and out of THAT number, more than 30 per cent visited just once. After vacationing in our area, visitors return to settle here, buy real estate or build homes and set up businesses so there’s a direct link between the economic development of our area and tourism.”

have quadrupled in sales. Organic apples are priced lower than conventional apples elsewhere. Many varieties have no wax nor stickers. The store has been selling 1,000 pounds of local apples a day.

The South Shuswap Chamber of Commerce will host its first educational workshop, in collaboration with its neighbouring chambers. An all-day Social Media Bootcamp will be held at the Quaaout Lodge on Saturday, April 5th and will be conducted by Campbell River social media guru Sean Smith. He will cover how all platforms of social media, such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn and Pinterest, for example, can better promote one’s business. Cost for the workshop is $59 for any chamber member belonging to North Shuswap, Chase, South Shuswap, Salmon Arm and Sicamous, and $82 for non-members. The fee includes a full lunch. Visit the chamber’s website to register: www.southshuswapchamber.com or call manager Karen Brown at 250-515-0002. Space is limited.

Last September, Pedro Gonzales Farm Fresh Produce and Garden was lost to an arson fire. Through the hard work and dedication of investigators working the case, police were able to press charges against a former seasonal employee and make an arrest. Soon after, the Ruth family made a decision to rebuild. Work progressed all winter and is on schedule to open April 1. The new store is entirely built with local products and all trades have been local, of which the Ruth family is very proud. It will be more efficient and use less energy, especially with lighting. In the meantime, you will find staff in a building at the back that will be a warehouse. The store sells bales of straw for bedding from Armstrong, high-quality livestock feed from Aldergrove, and bales of Pedro’s hay, second-cut grass grown on Ruth’s own fields at 40th St NE.

CHAMBER HOSTS A SOCIAL MEDIA WORKSHOP

I ENJOYED A SPROKKET AT SPROKKETS CAFÉ

Across the highway from Balmoral Store and attached to Dreamcycle Motorcycle Museum is Sprokkets Café. Owner Robin Johnson has an extensive menu on the wall, and instead of burgers she has ‘Sprokket sandwiches.’ Before baking the buns, she puts an indentation on top like a motorcycle wheel. They come in three sizes: mini, regular and monster. I chose the regular for about $9 and asked if half of it could be wrapped to take home for the next day. Sure! She has bags for that purpose. After I chose the main filling, Robin asked me to choose one or all of the following toppings from the list on the counter: cheddar or mozzarella, lettuce, tomato, cucumber, alfalfa sprouts, peppers, red onion, black olives, sweet pickles, hot banana peppers. After I chose three, Robin asked which sauce I would like from the list. I asked how many and she said I could have them all: ranch, mayo, horseradish, barbecue, mustard, honey mustard, cranberry, sweet onion, chutney. You’ve GOT to have a Sprokket sandwich!

DEMILLES SELLS FOOD FOR PEOPLE & ANIMALS

DeMilles Farm Market is selling products from Sure Crop Feeds now that the Grindrod company is selling to farmers, but not to the public. Feed comes in good-quality 20 kg. bags. The feed is for llamas, chickens, pigs, cattle and horses. In spring, the building across DeMilles’ parking lot will become the feed store and have its own cashier. The other half of the feed store is available for rent for four months in summer. Organics at the store are priced at 10 per cent over cost and

Every Wednesday is senior’s day for shoppers 55 and over. All purchases will be discounted 10 per cent at the till, except organics, bananas, heating pellets and Sure Crop feeds.

TIM HORTONS’ CUPS HAVE A BONUS ROLL

Roll Up The Rim started on Monday, and Tim Hortons is using the contest to mark its 50th anniversary in a big way. It is offering customers two chances to roll up the rim on each cup, and there are two rolls on every cup. Each cup has a yellow arrow pointing to the usual spot to roll up the rim – plus a blue arrow pointing to another spot on the cup where there’s an additional chance to win. The second roll-up-the-rim spot offers the chance to win one of 10 additional Toyota Corolla Sports. Tim Hortons usually offers 40 cars as prizes but the number is increased this year to 50 cars for 50 years, the company revealed exclusively to the Huffington Post Canada.

SIGN A PRE-CUP BEFORE YOU BUY A CUP

Suppose you buy a Timmie’s cup for a friend, and the friend rolls up the rim and wins a car. Who gets the car, the buyer or the one being gifted? A Pre-Cup was created by coffee lovers to prevent such a dilemma. It’s a form like a pre-nuptial that is written before marriage. Here’s simple wording to carry around: During roll-up-the-rim at Tim Hortons, if the person being gifted a cup of coffee wins a prize valued more that $20, the prize will belong (choose one) to the buyer, to the receiver, or divided between the two. Both sign here _______________ ________________ Date _______________ sallys1@telus.net • 250-832-4831

Abortion and breast cancer rates linked

Generally I enjoy Sally Scales columns–they are always informative, local and otherwise. However, in her February 7 and 14 columns she mentiones the Women’s International Summit for Health, and checking the website listed, I could find no reference to the link between abortion and breast cancer. It seems rather ironic that they would ignore it at the perils of women’s health. Countless studies clearly prove that there is a link. Countries like Great Britain, which have the highest rates of abortion, also have the highest rates of breast cancer. North

American rates of breast cancer are the highest in the world. One in 10 new cancers worldwide is a female breast cancer. In China, the enforcement of a one-child policy, which included compulsory abortion, saw a substantial increase in breast cancer rates. Causes and Control Journal not only endorses the long-muted link between abortion and breast cancer, but concludes the risk rises with every abortion a woman has. A French study showed that abortion before a full-term pregnancy increases the risk by 70 per cent. A full-term pregnancy matures a woman’s susceptible

Waiting for health care in BC

You’ve just received the diagnosis from the surgeon that you require a joint replacement. The good news is, they can perform these surgeries and in all likelihood, the outcome will be positive for you. The bad news is, you must go on a surgery waiting list for up to 18 months or longer while waiting to have it done. The orthopedic surgeons cannot perform all of these surgeries as the BC Government has reduced funding that allows the operating rooms to be scheduled to meet the demand. It is my understanding many hospitals are being underutilized by as much as 50%, is this fact? Large ‘new’ hospitals such as in Vernon and Kelowna are not being utilized to their fullest due to a shortage of funds that would allow these hospitals to be fully staffed and equipped. The new facilities are there but we now lack the funds to put these facilities to full use. Operating rooms, patient beds and specialized equipment sit idle for much of the time. They are closed during the off hours and weekends due to lack of funding. Other than

emergency situations most surgeries are performed Monday to Friday between the hours of 7:00 and 17:00. Government officials will tell us health care spending has been increased but no new funding is available to alleviate these growing waiting lists. What’s going to happen in a few years as the baby boomers require more & more health care? This a real concern – what is the government doing about it? There seems to be enough money to construct new bridges and highways in the lower mainland but why are surgery waiting lists continuing to grow and there does not appear to be any relief in sight. This letter might be seen as negative by some but the problem remains and is growing larger every day. As the BC government is in control of health care, what are they doing about it as British Columbians are demanding answers? This problem lies squarely on the shoulders of the Christy Clark government; we need to hear from our Premier and our local MLA’s regarding what they plan on doing about this abysmal situation? B. Campbell, Sorrento

Not all are small

Re: Sally Scales’ “no bra” advisory for women: (in her Lakeshore News Feb. 14th column): I would like to note that not all women have breasts the size of crabapples. Those of us who are more generously endowed would disagree most vigorously – first from a health standpoint, and also for appearance’s sake. If it is a male doctor’s advice she is quoting, that is understandable. He has never coped with permanent pendulous growths on his chest. If her advice stems simply from her former profession, then more shame on her. She must have seen enough female patients to reach a more sensible conclusion. Alli M. Graham, Sicamous

Affordable daycare?

The TRUE In The Trees team is excited that Emily Mlieczko, Executive Director of Early Childhood Educators of BC, is coming to Salmon Arm to share information about the proposed community plan for a public system of integrated early care and learning ($10/day plan). If the plan is successful, there will be many changes to BC’s current childcare system – changes will have an impact on families, early childhood educators, the school board, and businesses. Please come and learn about the $10/Day Plan! Ask questions and share your thoughts! She will be at Salmon Arm City Council meeting on Monday March 10th, 2:30 p.m. (meetings are open to the public to listen); and then later, there will be a public forum at the District Education Centre, 2960 Okanagan Ave at 6:00-8:00 p.m. It’s free to attend, and coffee will be provided. Bring a friend! Please come out and show that you care about how young children are cared for in BC.

Duma’s rooftop adventure

For those who are wondering, “Princess Duma” is still alive and kicking, I am not sure how many of her nine lives she has left, but the good news is she hasn’t been using them up as fast as she was last year. However, she almost used up one of mine last week. It all happened on one of those frigid days we had awhile back; where the temperature had dipped and the wind made it even colder. As I got out of my vehicle after work that night, I heard “meow” from the roof of our house, looked up, and saw Duma staring down at me. In most cases I would simply brush it off except that I could tell she wanted down, and couldn’t figure out how that was going to work. She slowly inched to the edge of the gutter, looked at me, meowed some more and then scurried back up to a more secure place. I dropped off my bag in the house and then went back out in the freezing cold to try and coax her off the roof. If I had been smart, I would have gotten changed out of my dress clothes and grabbed a toque, gloves and warm coat. However, we don’t always do the ‘smart thing,’ especially when we are impatient and hungry. I could tell she wasn’t going to miraculously jump into my arms so I thought I would go to the backyard where I might convince her to jump onto a pergola that ran close to the edge of the house. It seemed to make sense, as I was pretty sure she climbed the pergola to get onto the roof in the first place.

So there I was standing in the snow calling her. She did follow me from one side of the house to the other, but simply stared at me as I tried to convince her to jump down about 12 inches from the roof to the pergola. After a lot of muttering under my breath, I came to the conclusion that she wasn’t going to make it easy on me. I tromped through the snow to our shed and grabbed a step ladder. I took the ladder back to the house, tried my best to balance it and began the precarious climb up. Like most men, once I noticed the ladder was barely tall enough, I didn’t bother trying to find a bigger one; I just tried to stretch further. As I reached out to grab Duma, she smacked my hands a couple times with her paws and ran back up the roof away from me. So here I was putting my life on the line to save hers, and all she could do was smack me around and run off. Getting colder by the minute, I tried to coax her to the edge of the roof a couple more times, with the results being the same. On around the fourth try, however, I managed to quickly grab her before she could bolt away. “I was trying to rescue you – you crazy cat!” I exclaimed. She just looked at me with a look of “What took you so long?” In the end, she swaggered off with her tail in the air and I escaped without breaking my neck. She might be Princess Duma, but I’m definitely not her Prince Charming!

Annual bingo rally a success

It was a chilly day for the Hunters Range Snowmobile Association’s third annual Bingo Rally (pictured above) which was held on Sunday, February 9th. The cool temperatures may have discouraged many from coming out for the day, but those who did attend made it another successful event. At the chalet the concession had the usual hamburgers, hot dogs and chili on the menu along with hot chocolate and cookies. Dealer demo sleds, an informative Avalanche Safety lesson and beacon search challenge as well as a preview of some of the new winter gear by TOBE added to the day’s entertainment. Towards the end of the day, everyone gathered for the revealing of the top three bingo winners, determined by the total number of lines on their cards. Top prize winner Tannis Page won $400 with six lines on her card,

A good read

while second and third place had to be determined by a tie-breaker. After turning to the call sheet, second place was taken by Kyra Casorso, winning $240, and third place was given to Germaine Smith of Enderby, who won $160. Many who were not so lucky at playing bingo went home with a door prize of their choice. A portion of the days proceeds will be donated through the Association of BC Snowmobile Clubs event WinterFest, which in turn donates to the BC Lions Society for Children with Disabilities.

The caribou story shuswapoutdoors by Hank Shelley

www.lakeshorenews.bc.ca

The story of the Mountain Caribou is not only intriguing but uplifting, if you have ever seen them moving silently through snow-laden old growth, like grey ghosts, rearing up on hind legs to pull down clinging old man’s beard mosses, and lichen off the spruce and cedar tree trunks. But despite the implementation of a Mountain Caribou recovery plan, starting in late 2006, there is still worry that the estimated 1,533 animals in small herds in the Interior wet belt, including Revelstoke, could face extinction in the next few years, if more is not done to protect them. Presently, climate change will affect food supply with varying weather patterns and storms, freezing ground cover. Also a threat are predators like wolves, who follow snowmobile trails to windswept balsam/ spruce alpine areas. Cougars and wolverine will also take unwary animals at lower elevations. Forest managers and logging companies must (and have already, in some instances) work around conserving and protecting old growth forest, crucial to caribou. A person must also be aware of the habits and movement of these animals. They can be curious, spooked, or walk right up to you at times. As well, in 2011, 19 collared caribou were captured near Dease Lake, and transported to the Purcell

range in the Kootenays. In March 2012, they were released in alpine. They moved to valley bottom, and were targeted by cougars. Currently, only four remain. The south Selkirk herd of caribou that move between the US and Canada are in dire shape with only 17 remaining. Recently, local newspapers have reports about areas

Predators must be kept in balance. One particular theory in the first draft of the recovery plan was to increase the moose/grizzly bear harvest, which was implemented in the Revelstoke region. The logic behind this was that, with nothing to eat, the wolves would move on. A moratorium on any logging in old growth

restricted from snowmobiling and back country travel. For example, Silvercup Ridge, Mt. Grace, Frisby ridge, along with other locations. It’s important that folks adhere to these regulations and restrictions. Now many scientists have come forward with concerns, saying the Species At Risk plan for the Mountain Caribou is not working. There are a few plans in the works if we lose more animals. The Centre for Conservation Research, based in Calgary, would capture pregant caribou cows and hold them in maternity pens till calved, then hold both for 5-6 months before release.

cedar/hemlock Interior rainbelt forest (140 years or older). Recognition that protection of the Caribou/ lichen forests, will also help other endangered species as well. Restriction on more recreational development near caribou habitats. More aggressive enforcement. This season, conservation officers and park rangers will patrol backcountry locations close to Mountain Caribou winter habitat. Decommission of roads leading up to caribou winter/summer range. Many snowmobile organizations, including the Revelstoke club, have worked diligently to

Larch Hills Fun Day

Skiers aged 12 and under are invited to come up to Larch Hills on February 22nd from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. for a day of free family fun! The morning has been set aside for participants to come up and test their skills on the scavenger hunt, obstacle course, ski soccer, popcorn relay, and dress up relay. Registration is at the hill the day of the event, and those registered will be placed into groups before the start up. Bring your own lunch. Hot chocolate, cookies and marshmallows will be provided. Event organizer Megan Brooke is happy to answer your questions, so please feel free to contact her at 832-4904 or megcbrooke@yahoo.ca.

inform members and out-of-province sledders about the restrictions, and what to do if venturing into a restricted area. One good news story comes from Peter Rizzi, head mechanic at Mustang Powder Snow Cat Ski Lodge up the North Fork (Perry River), where last week, between 40/50 animals were spotted. This is also mountain goat alpine country. All persons immediately moved out of the area. Stan Heitman, of Sicamous, is also very knowledgeable about the local caribou herd and its migration movements. As we work together with more enthusiasm and dedication, I’m sure we can see caribou for some time, and not just on the backside of the Canadian quarter coin.

Fishing report: Gardom Lake – slow, lots of good solid ice. White Lake – spotty. Phillips/Fleming – slow as well. In most lakes, the fish just ain’t biting for some reason. On a recent trip to Bridge Lake for the abundant schools of fat kokanee, on Deka/ Bridge Sulphurous, fishing was very slow. However, on Bridge Lake, there’s excellent lake trout ice fishing.

Trail dedication

The Larch Hills snowshoe trail dedication to John Coffey takes place on Saturday, Feb 22nd, 2:00 p.m. at the South Hub (allow time to snowshoe up from the main chalet). Please come out and take part in this special dedication at the South Hub of Larch Hills. The Larch Hills Nordic Society will be placing a plaque in John’s memory at the South Hub to remember this leader who helped

to found the Shuswap Trail Alliance, and was instrumental in establishing the Larch Hills Snowshoe Trail system. The snowshoe trail John plotted from the South Hub to Cec’s Cabin will be named “ C o f f e y ’s Climb” in his honour. Everyone is invited to gather at the South Hub for the dedication (be sure to give yourself 30 – 40 minutes to walk from the Main Chalet to the South Hub.)

Predators: Wolf sightings are getting more common, as they follow moose movement to local areas. Currently, there are four moose hanging around the golf course, so slow down near the Black Road area, please. Don Blakely of Vernon had a head-on collision with a moose near Falkland recently; he was badly injured and his vehicle was totalled. There also have been vehicle/deer collisions up the highway from the Co-op gas bar/store near Tappen. A big Thank You to the many great folks who attended the Salmon Arm Fish and Game banquet last Saturday evening. Also a major Thanks to the merchants who once again came through with donations for the draws.

This is the message the Crisis Lines of BC want everyone to hear. Crisis Lines provide over 3.7 million minutes of empowering, evidence-based support each year to the people across the province. But even with that commitment and reach, there are still some who do not know of the critical services crisis lines provide. In light of recent events, it is even more important that the youth of BC know there are people who care and safe places they can turn to for support. 1800SUICIDE (1-800-784-2433) is a confidental, toll-free service that is available to anyone 24/7, anywhere any time in BC. Crisis Lines across the province are networked together to share suicide-related calls on this service and work towards the goal that ‘no call goes unanswered’. 310MENTAL HEALTH SUPPORT LINE (310-6789) is another 24/7/365, confidential service that provides support and resources for people with mental health questions and concerns. Also 24/7, the Crisis Line for residents who live in the Interior Health Authority service area can be reached by calling 1-888-3532273. Other Crisis Line phone numbers in BC can be found at www.crisislines.bc.ca or through your phone book or by calling the operator. Trained crisis line workers are available to provide support and resources around bullying, depression, thoughts of suicide and any issue you are facing. In addition, some Crisis Lines also provide support through online chat services to young people who have a web-based way to reach out.

The website and smartphone app Ask.fm is a socialnetworking site where people can ask other users questions. It’s extremely popular with pre-teens and teens, but recently it has become well-known for facilitating cyber-bullying instead. It has been referenced in several suicide cases around the world as part of the bullying the victim experienced that led to their suicide. The biggest issue with Ask.fm is that questions can be submitted anonymously, and content is not monitored, so abuse of the service can be rampant with no repercussions to the user. Even if someone is blocked, that person can still view profiles and see other interactions, and privacy settings cannot be increased as they can on Facebook and Twitter. According to RCMP Const. Tad Milmine, the Latvia-based website also sends daily spam with messages suggesting users kill themselves and calling them ugly, among others, with no name attached. Parents are urged to monitor all social media accounts and talk to their children about their online activities in an effort to prevent cyberbullying, and remember that the terms of service of Facebook, Twitter and Ask.fm require users to be at least 13.

By the Snow Days Committee Congratulations to the six Sicamous and area snow sculpture teams who braved the past weekend’s weather to sculpt ‘magic’ from the snow and ice! The daytime, nighttime and people’s choice judging is over, but outstanding People’s Choice ballots can still be turned in to the Sicamous Info Centre. First, second, and third places have been awarded in both the Downtown and in the Front Yard sculptures; however, the Light-Up and the People’s Choice winners will remain a secret until the awards ceremony to be held Saturday, March 1st, at 1:00 p.m. upstairs at the Sicamous & District Recreation Centre and Banner Project Open House. You won’t want to miss the display of Photo Treasure Hunt contestants and banners as well as the awards ceremony to the top winners. The award for Downtown sculpture first place (daytime) went to the Sicamous Dental Clinic Team for ‘Garfield Poster Cat For Good Dental Hygiene;’ second place (daytime) went to Team Grey Power at Mackie Lane, with the ‘Hand Holding Olympic Torch;’ and third place went to Inkx Printing for ‘Red Crayons.’ For Front Yard Sculpture: first place (daytime) went to Team Barbie for ‘Pirates of the Caribbean,’ second place (daytime, front

yard) went to Team G. & the G. Daughts for their magical dragon ‘Ta 2uma A of the Shuswap; and third place (daytime, front yard) went to Team Grey Power for their ‘ Canadian Olympic Power.’ What a great job these teams did! Be sure to ask them just how much fun they had sculpting, colouring and accessorizing their creations, as well as lighting them up for night judging. Then ask Sue Miller, Carol Schlosar and Kristine Bohnsack just how much fun it was to judge! As usual, it was an amazing weekend of snow fun, and don’t miss the excitement of the awards for the People’s Choice and Light up winners on March 1st 1:00 p.m. at the Banner Project Open House, at the rec centre. Banner Open House begins at 11:00 a.m. Pictured: Ta 2uma A of the Shuswap in daylight and at night, by the G. and the G. Daughts team.

Northern Lights liven up the season

Northern Lights Chamber Choir presents ‘Reflections;’ songs selected to mirror life’s myriad of experiences. It invites listeners to reflect on their lives and on the human condition. From birth to death and rebirth, through love and loss, struggle and joyful companionship, they are invited ultimately to celebrate and to savour the gift of being alive. Song selections range from ‘Sestina: Lagrime D’Amante al Sepolcro dell’Amata’ (Tears of the lover at the tomb of the beloved) by Claudio Monteverdi, which expresses the composer’s deep grief at the loss of his wife in 1607, to ‘Where Your Bare Foot Walks’ by David Child; inspired by the beautiful imagery poems of Rumi, Child composed this song to be premiered at his wedding and dedicated to his wife. Like much of Rumi’s mystic poetry, the song expresses longing for the experience of union with what is divine. Performances are being held at Sorrento (St. Mary’s Church) on Sunday, March 2nd at 2:30 p.m., in Salmon Arm (St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church) on Friday March 7th at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday March 16th at 2:30 p.m., in Vernon at Trinity United Church on Sunday, March 9th at 2:30p.m. Tickets are $15 each (SHUGO tickets are welcome). Ticket outlet information can be found on

their website at www.northernlightschamberchoir. ca. Founded in 2009, the Northern Lights Chamber Choir takes pride in presenting the finest choral music to Shuswap Audiences. Concert repertoire includes a variety of styles from classical Baroque to contemporary jazz and ethnic world music including many Canadian compositions. Particular emphasis is placed on “art songs,” that is, poetic pieces with beautiful images painted musically. Their concerts are held in small venues with lively acoustics, chosen for an intimate experience with the audience. Director Steve Guidone aims for excellent tonal quality, precision and emotional expressiveness in every selection. Each concert includes music that “stretches” the choir. The shared goal of this choir is to strive for excellence. Now in its fifth season, the choir has matured into a cohesive ensemble of dedicated singers with a well-blended sound under the guidance of the choir’s founder, Steve Guidone. The choir has grown from nine to 19 members. In April 2012, NLCC was awarded a “mark of distinction” by the Shuswap Music Festival Society.

Marion Grace Marr

July 3, 1914 - February 11, 2014 It is with sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Marion on February 11, 2014 at Hillside Village.  Born on July 3, 1914, Marion was the second youngest of eight children born to Ed and Mima Paynter.  The pioneer Paynter family farmed near Tantallon, SK. When Mom was 12 years old the family moved to Vancouver where she attended the Fairview School of Commerce and graduated in 1932. While unable to find suitable employment for which she was trained, Mom always found work to help the family during the 1930’s.  Her focused, perseverant nature served her well during those difficult times.  She was a planner with vision. No job was too big. Her sisters said she was somewhat stubborn but lovingly so. Marion met Sid Marr on a Vancouver street car while traveling to work. They were married on September 9, 1939  until Dad’s passing in 2002.  They made an incredible team.  With Mom’s ability to visualize and Dad’s woodworking skills, house renovations and alterations were the norm. Family gatherings organized by Mom were frequent and large.  Summers were a special time in the Marr family with camping trips throughout BC and Washington State.  In 1975, Marion and Sid moved from their long-term home in North Vancouver to Salmon Arm to be closer to their children and their families. Mom was an artist.  As children we were very familiar with the smell of oil paints and turpentine.  We  knew the difference between pastels, charcoals, and watercolours. Again, Dad would help with frame construction,  stretching canvas and hanging pictures at shows and galleries. Mom’s paintings hang in many Salmon Arm homes and will be a cherished legacy for all family members.  In later years, she worked mostly with silk paintings.  Many were done well after her eyesight began to fail.  She is survived by her sons Allan (Karen), their children Shannon Seed (Greg) and Cameron (Jennifer), and Brian (Rochelle), their children Braden (Leila), Travis and Daidri. Great-gramma will be missed by Graeme, Evan, Reid, Meghan, Malcolm, Kathleen (Brendan), Piper, Maylani and Renn. The family would like to thank the staffs at Piccadilly Terrace,  Hillside Village and Dr. Du Plessis for the excellent care provided. At Mom’s request there will be no service.  A springtime family gathering will be arranged. Email condolences may be sent through Marion’s obituary at www.bowersfuneralservice.com

Tom Tanemura

February 24, 1934 - February 10, 2014 Tommy Tanemura passed away peacefully in Bastion Place, Salmon Arm, BC in the early hours of Monday, February 10, 2014 at the age of 79 years. Following his wishes, there will be no formal service; cremation with interment to follow later in the newly planned cemetery next to his old homestead on Auto Road, Salmon Arm Born in Salmon Arm on February 24, 1934, Tom was a lifetime resident of Salmon Arm except for 10 years when he lived in Kelowna for apprenticeship and working as mechanic. He left home at 15 years of age to follow his passion to be a mechanic, of which he gained much respect for his dedication and workmanship. The local Ford dealership was his second home, working for Ferguson Ford, which sold to Chuck Jacobson and became Jacobson Ford. Health issues brought early retirement in 1991. He is well remembered for his quest to keep active and was often seen out walking, regardless of the weather or his lack of balance. In January of 2010 he was admitted to Bastion Place, which became a visiting spot for his close and dedicated friends and family. A special thanks to Dick and Lorraine Hume.

Harley Bruce Heywood Analyst, Communications Security Establishment Canada (CSEC) A life characterized by resilience, piercing intelligence, kindness, and gentle wit. Born 4 March 1984, died of a brain tumour, 7 February 2014. Early on Harley decided to fly and before 10 decided fighter planes. Before being accepted into the Royal Military College of Canada pilot program at 18, Harley earned a private pilots license on scholarship through air cadets and a commercial pilots license on his own. During 2nd year RMC his brain cancer was discovered. After surgery, radiation and medical release from the military, Harley completed his Bachelor of Engineering, Computer Engineering RMC 2007 as a civilian (a year later than his original classmates). He worked a year in Kingston for Empire Life then started a Masters degree, which he completed after moving to work for CSEC in Ottawa. Harley excelled always, and always helped others: Queen’s University Shield for best all around ROTP/ RETP cadet in academic standing, leadership, and sportsmanship 2005; Masters thesis nominated for Governor General’s Award being top 5% in Canada more than one RMC classmate told his parents “Without Heywood’s help, I wouldn’t have passed physics”; Trumpeter in RMC bands, in early teens selected for Pacific Region Cadet Honour Band and the nation wide Canadian Cadet Tattoo, invited at 17 to perform with the Kamloops Symphony - an opportunity he declined because he’d committed those days to coaching air cadets for flight scholarship exams. At flight training Harley would be ‘first to solo’ or ‘first to cross country’ - then volunteered countless hours flying cadets in gliders. More recently Harley was a Taoist Tai Chi Society volunteer instructor, a director on their regional council, and helped cater for Tai Chi functions.

A CSEC colleague tells us Harley implemented things

over a year ago that are still in place. His family didn’t understand what Harley did for a living; they were just glad he’d found something as stimulating and challenging as the dream he’d lost. They still don’t know what his job entailed but since CSEC has been in the news lately, “Canada’s ultra secret foreign signals intelligence agency” they now understand why his work was absorbing and rewarding. Harley must be chuckling to himself over this. With inextinguishable humour, on the last day Harley got out of bed, he heard his mother say to his brother, “I’ve changed my mind; I’m not going to borrow your sweater.” Harley grins at Stirling, “She’s going to keep it.” Born in Dubbo, Australia, his youth in Kingfisher (Enderby), died in his own home in Ottawa in the care of his parents John and Brenda Heywood from Kingfisher, and his brother Stirling of Revelstoke/Ottawa. Harley also leaves sisters Jess Penner (Del) in Salmon Arm, Blythe in Manitoba, Tina in Australia, another brother Tim in Los Angeles, and grandparents Bruce and Eleanore Bolton in Armstrong. Harley, it is a privilege to have been part of your life, and these past months it has been an honour to share your journey; on to your next adventure.

Coming Events

Herbie was a great father and provided for the family throughout his life. He never stopped working and always seemed to be building, repairing, fixing and offering his advice on how to complete the job correctly. Coveralls were his uniform and projects were his passion. His late life, in his 70’s, his prize project included completely restoring a Hayes tandem axle truck from the ground up.

FUNDRAISER for MADISON COX

Herbie was born in Silver Creek and lived most of his life in the Salmon Arm area. His early days involved youthful initiation into the forest industry. He worked at his Dad’s mill in Silver Creek and learned the tricks of the trade through hard work and day-to-day experience. As Herbie grew a little older, he continued to develop his resume, including a job as a milkman in New Westminster. At the same time he fell in love with Bertha and a new adventure - a family - began. Darla & Joanne were born in New Westminster and 5 years later, Greg was born in Salmon Arm. Herbie loved to tell stories from his own experiences and had a real knack for getting involved in any conversation. He enjoyed playing hockey for many teams, including the Salmon Arm Aces and was a keen golfer.
