Keeping the love alive friends&neighbours

www.lakeshorenews.bc.ca

There are books, seminars and even philosophical treatises written on the law of attraction. But it’s quite simple really; as simple as a bag of potato chips. “I was keeping score at a baseball game and Jerry was going to the concession stand. I asked him to pick me up some salt & vinegar chips. That’s how it started,” says Debbie Jones. This was, of course, about three decades ago. Debbie met Jerry Jones through mutual friends. Score a discount “I was attracted right away,” says on your purchase! Debbie. And for Jerry - well it was the Free Sight Testing Mondays - by appointment flavour of potato chips that Debbie asked for that made all the difference. “We both liked salt & vinegar. He told me later, that he knew it was going to be all right,” she says laughing. A couple of Joy Jackie Anne weeks later he asked her out.

We watch sports all the time. We’ve had season tickets to the SilverBacks from the get-go. We love fishing, camping and curling.” There is nothing they don’t like doing together. And after nearly 30 years, there is still romance. “One time he packed up a picnic basket, blindfolded me and drove me all over the place.

******* Sometimes the law of attraction isn’t exactly obvious; sometimes it hides behind horn-rimmed glasses. “I met Joe in grade 11. He just moved to Enderby and came to school in Salmon Arm. I remember he had horn-rimmed glasses. He was a geek,” says Bobbi Johnson, laughing. “In grade 12 he got contacts and he was a hunk and he still is.” Joe reminds her that people are going to be reading this and that they have to live in this town. Despite the glasses, they became good friends. What attracted her to him? “Joe is just a friendly, nice guy. He’s polite. He opened the doors for me.” What attracted him to her? “I think Bobbi is an outgoing and caring person. That’s what attracted me to her.” They started spending more time together and one day, Joe told his parents he was inviting his friend, Bobbi for dinner. “My parents were surprised to find out Bobbi was a girl.” They laugh at this memory. “He looked good on a horse,” Bobbi recalls. “Quit saying that stuff – I have to live in this town.” And just to make the embarrassment factor not lopsided, it’s fair to mention about the actual proposal. “Bobbi said, ‘I’m going to marry you someday,” says Joe. “I said that to you?’”

It didn’t scare Joe away. A year after they graduated they were married in Salmon Arm. It was a beautiful ceremony and they had 200 guests. At the reception, a couple of their friends attempted a practical joke. “I was kidnapped,” says Bobbi. “They asked me to come out and I went. They got me into the car. They were going to phone for a ransom.” While the car was stopped Bobbi took advantage of the opportunity and started running. “I was in my wedding dress running down the highway and a guy in a tux was chasing me. A policeman passed us – and kept going. That was funny.” That was 40 years ago. They have five children and 13 grandchildren. What’s the secret of still being in love after 40 years? “It’s about not having to be right all the time,” says Joe. “It can’t be all about you. You have to think from the other person’s point of view.” “We just like each other’s company,” says Bobbi. Birthdays, anniversaries, and special occasions–like Valentine’s Day–don’t go by without celebration. “It’s just another opportunity to let your partner know you love them,” says Joe. “And we say it,” says Bobbi, “we say it all the time.”

The dugout canoes of yesteryear

where he wanted it on the bottom and he’d start chipping the sides until it was completely finished. “Then [my father] would haul these great big rocks. My dad built a fire and put the rocks into it. When the canoe was completely done, he braced the inside of the canoe with wide sticks between one to two feet in length. [We] kids would run back and forth to the lake and fill the canoe with buckets of water. We made a game of it. Meanwhile the rocks were getting red hot [in a fire] and my dad would take the rocks and put them in the water in the canoe. Every once in a while he would feel the outside of [the canoe]. If the heat came through, it was good. The hotter the outside the canoe was, the better. Once it was hot, my dad spread the sides of the canoe [apart] with longer sticks. “I remember going out on the lake as a child before going off to the Residential School in Kamloops. I cherish the memories of the lake…It was a delight, running around the beach and enjoying the sense of freedom.” Dr. Mary Thomas passed away on July 30, 2007, at the age of 89. Heritage Afloat is being celebrated at the Mall at Piccadilly. To see displays, courtesy of the Salmon Arm Museum at R.J.

By Deborah Chapman This year’s Heritage Week theme is the historic use of the waterways that connect to rails and roads. The earliest highways were the lakes and rivers that gave the Secwepemc, the first people of this area, access to different landscapes and resources. Well into the twentieth century, their mode of transportation was the dugout canoe. Esteemed First Nations elder Dr. Mary Thomas (pictured at right) loved to spend her summers on Shuswap Lake. Fourteen years ago Mary described how her father built his own canoes for a Salmon Arm Museum exhibit. “The dugout canoes are quite heavy, even when they are dry. I watched my dad make them. We had to help in the summer time. He used poplars. I watched him make them from start to finish. His canoes were nice riding. They glided. “You have to have a sharp eye to make them so that the front and back are straight. If the canoe is the least bit crook-

ed, when you paddle [it] will keep wanting to turn. My Dad used to explain to us the values of making a dugout canoe. “First of all my dad cut down a tree the length of the log he wanted. He’d stake it from the front to back and put his drawstring over it, making a straight line. He’d chip a piece out of the bottom, then roll it over and repeat it on the other side. My dad used a broad axe. He had axes from making ties for the railway. He chipped, and chipped, and chipped away the wood, then would burn a [large] hole [for the inside of the canoe]. “My father really had to be on the ball, so he didn’t burn too much either way. He finally got it right to

Aging gracefully

A recent symposium held at the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in Toronto (where I completed my chiropractic education) brought together numerous specialists in the field of aging and health. There were a number of interesting presentations that brought to light the importance for the elderly to make regular chiropractic care part of their wellness and prevention lifestyle. These presentations focussed on how chiropractic care plays a huge role in what is referred to as “successful aging.” The term successful aging means that people do not just live a long life, but they also maintain their health without disability. Research on 34 countries showed Canada ranks 12th in life expectancy, at 81 years, and 10th in “Health-Adjusted Life Expectancy” (HALE) at 70 years. HALE takes into account the rates of disability and represents how long people live on average without a disability. This means the average Canadian lives the last 11 years of their life with some form of impairment. It is now known chiropractic plays a leading role in successful aging by helping seniors maintain their mobility. It aides them in being able to stay out of hospitals and nursing homes for as long as possible. Delaying and preventing entrance into hospitals and nursing homes is extremely important because healthcare-associated infections (HAI’s) are now the 4th leading cause of death in Canada. There are over 220,000 HAI’s per year that cause 8,500-12,000 deaths and cost Canadian tax payers $1 billion per year. The other alarming statistic is these rates have been continually rising over the past 20 years. Research into aging and health is confirming how important it is for seniors to maintain physical health and their mobility. Maintaining strength, balance, and mobility reduces the injuries and complications related to falls. Chronic pain is also one of the most common challenges faced by this age group. Regular chiropractic care has been shown to be one of the most effective healthcare models to help aging Canadians with these issues faced in the “golden years.” People of all ages should make chiropractic part of their healthy lifestyle in order to ensure the golden years are not “rusty years.” My goal is to keep our elderly patients functioning at optimal health by removing subluxation (nervous system interference) through a series of spinal adjustments and encouraging a regular exercise routine. Movement in the spine and throughout the body is vital in maintaining good health! Call Dr. Gage at Harbourfront Family Chiropractic at (250) 8030224 for an assessment today.

Barley rich in fibre, selenium

In the cold weather, a cup of barley soup can be soothing while providing a lot of important nutrients. Barley is rich in insoluble fibre, which helps in prevention of constipation by providing bulk and decreasing the transit time of fecal matter, thus decreasing the risk of colon cancer and hemorrhoids. The propionic acid produced from barley’s insoluble fibre in the intestine may also be partly responsible for the cholesterol lowering properties of fibre. So people with high cholesterol can benefit by including barley in their diet regularly. Moreover, barley’s fibre is high in beta glucan, which also helps in lowering cholesterol. As well, a study published in the Archives of Internal Medicine mentions that eating high-fibre foods such as barley helps prevent heart disease. One cup of oats gives 3.98g of fibre while barley gives 13.6g of fibre. Moreover, it is a good source of niacin, a B vitamin that provides numerous protective actions against cardiovascular risk factors. In one study taking six servings of barley showed to be helpful in postmenopausal women with cholesterol and cardiac problems. This grain is also suitable for type 2 diabetes and including it in break-

fast is a very good choice. In the American Journal of Gastroenterology a study showed it decreased gallstone problems. Barley juice is sometimes recommended to people with a kidney stone. It is also a good source of lignans (though not as high as flaxseed). Lignans have been associated with lower risk of breast cancer. It is rich in selenium which is essential for metabolic pathways, including thyroid hormone metabolism, antioxidant defense systems, and immune function. One geographical area in Africa where the soil is rich in selenium has fewer incidences of AIDS compared to the area where the soil is deficient in this mineral. Selenium is a trace mineral that our bodies use to produce glutathione peroxidase, which has anticancer properties that lowers the risk of getting cancers such as prostate cancer, colorectal cancer and lung cancer. Lots of nutrients are lost in processing pearl barley, so the preference is for hulled barley, which retains its nutrition value. Enjoy the Shuswap’s cold weather with barley soup.

Stronger Bones with Strontium+

A growing body of research suggests strontium, when used in conjunction with calcium, will provide better bone development than a calcium supplement alone, particularly for postmenopausal women. Containing key co-factors for optimal bone building synergy, Strontium+ helps increase bone mineral density and reduces the effects of bone loss. Strontium+ features: • Strontium, manganese & copper to enhance bone cartilage, bone collagen and bone mineralization. • Vitamin D to aid in calcium absorption. • Minerals are micronized and blended with MCT oil (Medium chain triglycerides) from coconut to ensure optimal absorption with gelcaps.

In 1995, 14 Canadian wolves were reintroduced back into Yellowstone National Park; with 17 more the the following year. Recently, two collared Montana wolves were shot near Tappen. But our story begins as the old Cessna 172 aircraft circled in dimming twilight, and flew directly over our camper. Suddenly the engine sputtered and died, and a voice hollered, “Get off my *&##** runway!” Dousing the campfire, we jumped into the truck and moved it. The aircraft landed, now in the dark. The pilot stomped over. “Don’t ya know better, you idiots?!” We said we were just lookin’ for a spot to camp, after a very long drive to Pink Mountain on a moose hunt. He then left. Later, we found out he was another northern character, nicknamed “Midnight Anderson,” notorious for flyin’ around the country in late evening. In stark testimony, hanging on his cabin wall, were a number of twisted/bent

propellers, signifying close calls and crack ups. Further north in the Muskwa-Kechika country, another plane was in the air, likely a Piper Supercub, carrying famous guide Frank Cooke. This guy wasn’t fooling around. With a door off, and a shotgun mounted on a turret, he was flying low over a large frost-covered meadow. Target? A pack of timber wolves, chasing and hamstringing a cow moose. They had already crippled the calf, to be devoured later on their hunt. Wolves in that north country, had increased in numbers to a point where moose and caribou numbers had dwindled. Complains kept coming in from all outlying areas about the increased numbers of wolves. To a big game guide like Cooke, it became a personal vendetta. Besides, guiding moose hunters was his livelihood. It got worse, when a pack attacked and took down some of the younger colts from mares in his pack string.

Later, after eating their fill, they were bedded and lazing in the sunshine on a ridge above his ranch. It was time to get the game department to do something. There had been a cull of wolves in the early 1950’s by the game department, carried out by flying over frozen lakes and dropping chunks of strychnine-injected meat. It was very successful; however, CO Bud Ward, stationed in Fort Nelson, had some issues. Cooke had no authorization to take wolves by shooting them from the aircraft. At Cooke’s ranch place while Cooke was away, Bud went to a shed and seized some wolf pelts containing ssg (peasized buckshot). This, however, was thrown out of court, as Ward did not obtain a search warrant. Both these stories happened years ago; but now, with about 1,700 grey wolves in Montana, an open season has been declared. Our grey wolf is expanding its territory, and with complaints from hunters and ranch-

shuswapoutdoors by Hank Shelley ers, the habitat branch of Forest, Lands, Natural Resources implemented a draft management plan to deal with the situation. Submissions were asked for until Dec 5, 2012. In response, 3000 comments came in–many against a cull. So, now, there will not be a cull. Wolves from Montana? It goes to show how far a pack will travel in search of home range, providing there is sufficient game to support them. A cull of wolves in the Okanagan was carried out in April 1988, using the chemical compound “1080” to eliminate 60 animals. In February 1988, following a two year study of radio-collared wolves, by Dr. Daryll Hebert, another poisoning program took place in the Quesnel highlands, to bring back dwindling numbers of caribou. Calf survival had dropped to 11 calves per 100 cows. In the Shuswap-Thompson

region, currently there are trappers trying to reduce the wolf populations locally. But with the two wolves taken near Tappen recently, it shows how difficult it would be to control packs in the North Thompson. In the Barriere, Merritt, Cherryville, Wap, Kingfisher, Sicamous, and Malakwa areas, many hunters report a serious lack of game animals for the past three seasons, with only a few wolves harvested. Google wolf management plan BC for more information about this topic. Also, check out author Bruce Lamb’s book, “Outposts and Bush Planes” for a real insight on trying to balance game populations against the timber/grey wolf. Currently there are about 8,550 wolves in BC, with 60-150 between Cherryville and Grand Forks. Tight lines, good ice fishin’!

SEEKING DONATIONS OF LEGO BLOCKS

The Salvation Army Church plans to start a new program for kids aged six to 12, Wednesday evenings beginning in April. The first 10 weeks they will have a Bible lesson that will incorporate a small Lego building project which they will take home and share what they learned with their family. It will be based on a curriculum called Faith Builders. They will also learn about God, Jesus, the Bible and faith. (Google: Faith Builders Lego) If your kids are getting older and no longer play with Lego, or if they moved away and left all their toys, consider donating the Lego to the Salvation Army for the new program. Package or box them and write “Sharon Feener” clearly on top. Leave at the church, the food bank at the back of the church facing UPS, or the Salvation Army’s thrift shop half a block behind Safeway. Or call Capt. Sheldon Feener or Sharon Feener at 250-832-9196.

AN APOLOGY FROM THE CHEMTRAIL NAYSAYERS

Last week I wrote about ex-military environmental hygienist Kristen Meghan who is exposing the dangerous content of chemtrails. If you missed it, go to www.lakeshorenews. bc.ca, click on this column and go to February 7. Or search for “Kristen Meghan chemtrails” on YouTube or Google. Frank H. Lucianovich wrote me a touching letter. I am reprinting it with his permission: Good morning Sally, As an unofficial, self-appointed representative of the many who should care more, as well as the larger group of those with their heads in the sand heap, I would like to apologize to YOU for the thoughtless ribbing you endured when you refused to back off on this issue (that the chemtrails were a bonafide threat to public health, and possibly even our environment)! Who is it that comes out looking like a fool, NOW? Most unfortunately, the general public is unworthy of such caring attention as you brought to this subject matter. Many would rather swallow the disinformation on such issues and consider the silence of the politicians as an indication that there really is nothing to worry about! Is that not how we wound up with a permanently damaged environment and global warming? Good ol’ politicians, experienced and educated, but also effectively muzzled. Chemtrails are affecting every living being in not only Canada and the United States, but the entire world. European skies are similarly criss-crossed with chemtrail pollution. This is a matter of grave significance. According to the Alzheimer Society literature, an expected doubling of the present number of affected persons is being anticipated... and such dramatic increases are not accidental, nor coincidental!

A sincere Thank YOU on behalf of those who do care, as well as those who did not understand why they, as Canadian patriots... also did not have another option, but to care! Best regards, Frank H. Lucianovich, Enderby

FABULOUS MODEL RAILROAD CLUB DISPLAY

If you’re in Salmon Arm any Saturday, you MUST visit the display in Piccadilly by the Salmon Arm Model Railroad Club. It’s located opposite the mall’s administration office and is open from noon to 4 p.m. every Saturday. Free admission but a donation is welcome in the donation box. The display is HO gauge. Trains go through a tunnel, snow shed, over bridges, past a coal mine, and a lift bridge that is a replica of one in North Vancouver. Trains go past a car accident, stores, hotel dance floor, electric generating plant, sawmill, planer mill, etc., etc. A person could spend a few hours there. And, the entire display comes apart in six pieces for transporting. Little children can ride in one of the two grocery carts because the displays are quite high. Members of the club love to be guides and point to things you may not notice, like people having a meal in a dining car. Be sure to sign the guest book, and flip through the pages to see where visitors came from. Look at the ribbons and plaques that the club won at competitions. Enjoy!

Crosby. Sunday’s Province newspaper devoted a full page to Shea. The 28-year-old credits his parents for instilling good work ethic and good morals in him as a kid. He played three WHL seasons in Kelowna. The professional ice hockey defenceman currently serves as captain of the Nashville Predators. Google: Shea Weber and see how Team Canada is doing at Sochi.

KRAFT HOCKEYVILLE 2014 NUMBERS ARE IN

Thank you to the 889 people who registered their support for Salmon Arm becoming Kraft Hockeyville 2014 in B.C. The nomination phase closed on Sunday night, and 754 messages and pictures were sent to the nomination package. The top 16 communities that made the first cut from the 645 that were nominated will be announced March 8 on http:// krafthockeyville.cbc.ca, eight for the west and eight for the east. Then on March 8, 9 and 10, the second voting will take place from our keyboards.

PROMOTE YOUR HEALTH-RELATED WORK

If you provide clients with body and soul wellness, you may want to be an exhibitor at the Vernon Body & Soul Wellness Fair on March 1 and 2. www.bodyandsoulwellnessfair.com.

FOCUS MORE ON BREAST CANCER PREVENTION

What a surprise to see that the post office in Salmon Arm was open on Monday. That’s because Family Day is a provincial statutory holiday, and not a federal. Clerks were not rushed off their feet.

Last week I suggested you join the free internet-based Women’s International Summit for Health that was focusing on breast health. A different speaker a day was heard by people who registered at http://www.wishsummit.com. During the past week, a speaker said women should go braless to prevent cancer. “When you start wearing a bra, the tighter and longer you wear it, the higher the rates of cancer go, until it’s over 100 times higher when you wear it 24/7.” A doctor said years of research and rolling up of your spiritual, physical and emotional sleeves prove that your breast cancer diagnosis is not a death sentence and your DNA is not your destiny. After recovering from her own breast cancer, she gives seven essential steps to recover from or prevent the disease. Google: dr v breast cancer conqueror. The grand finale was called Who Stole the Iodine? There is an alarming link between iodine deficiencies and breast cancer. For $27 you can buy the interview transcripts on an e-book called “Rethink Pink. Stop running for the cure, stand up for the cause.” It will arrive in your in-box and you can listen to the speakers anytime.

The 2014 Winter Olympics at Sochi, Russia, has a hockey player from Sicamous playing defence for Team Canada, the men’s hockey team. Shea Weber has been named assistant captain at Sochi, under the leadership of captain Sydney

Letters to the Editor Regular mammograms do save lives

I was reading the Lakeshore News as I do every Friday and look forward to Sally Scales column, but this last Friday I could not believe what I was reading! One of the headlines says” frequent mammograms are a sham.” I’m not sure what is regarded as ‘frequent’ mammograms, but I URGE all women to have a yearly mammie! I had mine a year ago and yes it came back with a “density” problem and I needed to have an ultrasound, which led to a biopsy. It came back positive. If I hadn’t gone for my yearly mammogram who

Whether or not it was Sally’s intention to make it sound like mammograms are a waste of time or not, she infers that mammograms do more harm than good. SHAME on you Sally! So please ladies (and men, as breast cancer is on the rise for men also) keep going for your yearly mammograms, and pay attention to your breasts – examine them every day and also pay attention to the size of your breasts.

We all know that one is larger than the other naturally, but I noticed that one was twice the size of the other; I now know that this is a very early warning sign of cancer! So thank you to the mammogram screening, as it probably saved my life. Sally, you need to print an apology to all women out there who are now thinking of not having a regular mammogram. I am living proof they DO work! M. Lawson, Salmon Arm

The Invisible Woman

Ralph Fiennes follows up his directorial debut (Coriolanus) by switching his sights from Shakespeare to the world of classic English literature, telling the biographical story of The Invisible Woman, based on the book by Claire Tomalin. This sweeping romantic drama offers a rare view into the private life of Charles Dickens (Fiennes), told from the perspective of his young mistress Nelly Ternan (Felicity Jones). Playing out mainly through flashbacks, Nelly meets Dickens at one of the author’s

public readings and their relationship evolves when ushered into the affair by her mother (Kristin Scott Thomas) in hopes of a secured future. Despite being swept up in passion and inspiration, Nelly soon sees the consequences her choices have on Dickens’ family and professional life; and she struggles, despite his insistence, to remain discreet, and for all intents and purposes, invisible. The Invisible Woman shows at 5:00 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 15th at Salmar Classic Theatre.

On Thursday, February 20, the Morgan Childs Quartet comes to Salmon Arm. Morgan Childs has been a fixture on the Toronto music scene since making the move from his native Vancouver in 2009. In constant demand as a frequent collaborator with a number of national and international jazz artists of distinction, Childs has cemented his reputation as one of Canada’s foremost jazz musicians. Peers and elders alike have expressed admiration for Childs’ unique blend of forward-looking,

contemporary instincts with his warm, vintage sound aesthetic and thorough understanding of the jazz tradition. This versatility has allowed him to work with some of the finest musicians in North America, including Phil Dwyer, Zach Brock, Ingrid Jensen, Brad Turner, Richard Whiteman, Ross Taggart, Bernie Senensky and many others. In 2009, Childs won the Grand Prix at the Montreal Jazz Festival as a member of pianist Amanda Tosoff’s acclaimed quartet. Only three years later, he would take home the very same prize

It is always interesting to view things through the eyes of a child. The other day, I was out of town at a hockey rink–the way I spend a lot of my weekends. After the game, I decided to get some cash from a nearby bank machine. My youngest son Nate was with me, and instead of waiting for his older brother to come out of the dressing room, he decided to come with me. “Whatya doin’ Dad?” he asked. “I need to get some cash from the bank machine” I replied. “Okay! I’ll come too!” he exclaimed, assuming I was getting cash to buy him a hot dog or some other treat. When we got to the machine I put my card in, punched the buttons, and $80 popped out. “Wow, Dad! How much money did you put into that machine so that it gives you 80 bucks?” Nate exclaimed. “I didn’t put any money into the machine. I put my card into the machine and the card tells the machine to take the money from my bank account,” I replied. “Are you serious?! The bank machine just sucks the cash from your bank account all the way to here?” he questioned. Obviously I had to laugh. The little guy was envisioning a large tube connecting the bank machine in Vernon with my bank account in Salmon Arm sucking cash at high speeds and delivering it to me through the machine. I was pretty sure I would lose him in the details of exactly how it works, but I gave him a fairly simple explanation which seemed to satisfy him. Besides, in due time the Junior Bean Counter and future Mayor will probably give him a detailed lesson in how it works anyway… for a fee, of course!

Morgan Childs Quartet to play locally on Thursday

as a member of the trio of legendary HungarianCanadian pianist Robi Botos, one of only a handful of musicians in Canada to ever win the award twice in its 35-year history. Childs’ current group features three other musicians with equally impressive pedigrees; their blend of sophistication and soul is a rare and unique treat! Come see Morgan Childs, Chad Makela, Adam Thomas, and Dan Reynolds on Thursday, February 20 at the Banquet Room of Shuswap Chefs Restaurant, 555 Trans Canada Highway. The concert starts at 7:00, and doors open 6:30-ish. Admission by donation. Visit jazzsalmonarm.ca for more information.

off. Accomplished raw chef Amie Sue knows how to photograph her creations with mouthwatering precision, while giving step-bystep directions and informing you on the health benefits of each ingredient. Now let’s get back to chocolate. In 1867, a Swiss chemist discovered a process to powder milk by evaporation. This set the stage for a new kind of chocolate milk and chocolate bar. Although considered a monumental moment in food history, it was the addition of powdered milk that

blocked the healing antioxidant properties of cacao from being effective. Raw cacao contains off-the-chart amounts of magnesium. Magnesium levels and antioxidants in raw cacao support the heart and brain directly, so it is not just a romantic fancy that chocolate “opens the heart.” You can find raw cacao beans in local health food stores. Add power and energy to your morning by adding a heaping spoonful of raw cacao nibs in your smoothies along with a teaspoon of maca powder.

The top skiers in each heat move up within their category while the bottom skiers move down to ski against other top or bottoms skiers in other heats. Heats were comprised of up to six skiers. All skiers were given a final placement. For the 2004 Boys, third place was awarded to Cameron Carelse, and for the 2004 Girls, Julianne Moore placed first and Zara Bucher placed second. For the 2003 Boys, Trond May placed first, and for the Girls, Claire Van Bergeyk placed first. For the 2002 Boys, Stephen Moore took second place, and Calvin Hepburn tied for third.

Selling? Consider this

If you decide to fix up your home before you sell and someone tells you to paint the walls green, (or grey, or yellow, or blue), consider this: You run a really high risk that a potential customer will take one look at the colour and skedaddle right out of there. I personally, have never met a green I like. If I was going to buy a home, the last thing I would want to do is paint over just-painted walls. I would be thinking, “Why didn’t they just stay neutral? I could live with that for a time while I decide what colours need to be here.” If you hire a stager, she may give you different advice, but a good stager with a proven track record probably won’t steer you into trendy wall colours anyway. And if anyone tells you to just put hardwood floors down, or just replace the countertops with granite and the house will sell, please step away from the voice... Not everyone wants the coolness or noise of hardwood floors; some people actually like carpet, and new buyers want to pick their own colours, anyway. New granite countertops in an old kitchen will look like new granite countertops in an old kitchen. And granite is on its way out; there are some laminates that are much less expensive, look just as good and wear very well. Remember oak? Need I say more.

DesignDilemmas by Linda Erlam And then we come to the bathroom. If you can’t rip it out and do it white, please consider whether it really warrants any expense. If it’s not white, it will date. I knew a gal who recently ripped out the tub in the bathroom and put in a magnificent, state-of-the art sit-down-and-have-a party-shower. Only problem was the potential buyer hated the shower and wanted a tub. And I’m sure there are instances of ripping out the shower for a tub and the potential owners wanting the shower back. I think it’s a bit of a crap-shoot. Chances are good you will be wrong in your paint colour choice, fixture choice, flooring choice, or tub vs. shower choice unless you stick to the classics and stay neutral. Or you have a really good stager with a proven track record. If she does, she can show you how to sell your home 30 percent faster and for about 10% more than if your home wasn’t staged. True. I’m not making that up. Visit my website if you have time: Designsewlutions.ca; with new stuff added frequently. Or, phone 250-8331120.

Residential Construction Guide Februa ry 2011

Residential Con struction Performance Guide For New Homes C overed b y Home wa rraNty I NsuraNC e IN brIt IsH Colu mbI

Know When to Make a Home Insurance Claim Owners of homes with home warranty insurance can search the Residential Construction Performance Guide to find out whether concerns they have with the quality of their homes may be covered by home warranty insurance. View the Guide to find: • the minimum required performance of new homes • more than 200 performance guidelines, and • criteria to help consumers self-evaluate possible defects in 15 major construction categories.

a

Homeowners have a new tool at their fingertips to help them better understand how their new home should perform and how their home warranty insurance works. The Residential Construction Performance Guide is available on the Homeowner Protection Office website www.hpo.bc.ca. It explains the basics of a well constructed home and how warranty providers evaluate claims for possible design, labour or material defects in new homes. Every new home built for sale by a licensed residential builder in B.C. is protected by mandatory third-party home warranty insurance. It’s the strongest system of construction defect insurance in Canada. This simple, practical guide outlines more than 200 possible defects that are searchable online. This includes the most common defect claims that might be submitted under a home warranty insurance policy – from windows that malfunction, to driveway or interior concrete floors that have cracked, to siding that has buckled. Designed primarily for conventional low-rise, wood-frame homes, the guide also provides some helpful guidelines for the common property of multi-unit buildings.

This Guide can be viewed on the B.C. government’s Homeowner Protection Office website.

www.hpo.bc.ca

It’s free, easy and available online.

Studies have found that supplementing with 500 to 1,200 milligrams of calcium daily may ease premenstrual symptoms. Other research suggests that getting calcium from foods (low-fat dairy, whole grains, cruciferous vegetables, spinach, and beans) may also ease PMS.

SUDOKU

CAPRICORN

Capricorn, your responsible nature helps those in your care to feel safe and secure. It is good to show others how much they mean to you, and you have been doing it correctly.

AQUARIUS

Some well-hidden information could come to the surface, and you will have the ability to put it to use, Aquarius. Just don’t let the power go to your head.

PISCES

Pisces, you must deal with a potentially delicate matter in the days to come. Keep a cool head and remain confident.

ARIES

Aries, strange forces seem to be working against you, but fortunately you are prepared for anything that comes your way. Allow for some time to get things settled.

TAURUS

Taurus, keep a firm hand on your wallet so you can avoid spending well beyond your means. It is best if you avoid making any impulse purchases in the near future.

GEMINI

Gemini, listen carefully when a family member comes to you with some sage advice. Even a seemingly relaxed conversation may prove fruitful.

CANCER

Cancer, you may seem rushed this week, but resist the temptation to go faster than is comfortable for you. Take your time so things are done right the first time.

LEO

Leo, you may have so much fun this week that you don’t realize you have been getting work done in the process. Your attitude is even inspiring others around you.

VIRGO

Take a step back when you don’t see eye to eye with a colleague, Virgo. Disagreements can quickly escalate, so keep a level head and take all things into consideration.

LIBRA

Libra, your intuition and ability to work with people closely will make your life much more enjoyable. Make use of these talents as you pursue a new career path.

SCORPIO

Falling into a slump just isn’t your style, Scorpio. Even if things don’t seem to be going your way, your attitude and work ethic will make the most of the situation.

Evenings Feb 21, 22, Feb 27 - Mar 1, 6 - 8 7:30pm

SAGITTARIUS

Sagittarius, playing games with someone can be fun, but don’t let things turn into a serious rivalry. Focus on being lighthearted this week.
