AQUARIUS

Aquarius, although you have many friends, you recently have only spent time with a select few. This week is a great time to reach out to those friends you haven’t seen in awhile.

PISCES

Your competitive juices will be flowing this week, Pisces. Enjoy the competitive atmosphere but don’t take things too far.

ARIES

Now may be the time to try something new, Aries. You are not one to shy away from anything, but right now you’re a bit apprehensive about things. Take a leap of faith.

TAURUS

Taurus, many people look to you as a leader, and they are wise to do so. You are especially trustworthy, and you will be asked to solve a few problems this week.

GEMINI

Gemini, there won’t be much time to enjoy recreational activities this week, so you may have to find a new way to let loose. Rest assured there will be more time for fun down the road.

CANCER

Cancer, a new opportunity comes your way but you’re not quite sure if you’re ready for such drastic changes. Take your time before making a final decision.

LEO

Leo, no matter how hard you try, some people just can’t see things from your point of view. Don’t take this personally, as everyone is entitled to their own opinions.

VIRGO

Virgo, sometimes it seems like you have all of the answers, while at other times, you might not know how to approach a situation. Take some time to analyze your approach.

LIBRA

Feeling homesick, Libra? If so, make some postholiday plans to visit with friends or family you didn’t get a chance to see during the holidays. Enjoy this time spent with loved ones.

Unplug & Play weekend not just for kids

www.lakeshorenews.bc.ca

File photo

It wasn’t very long ago that I upgraded my mobile phone. I spent the next two weeks loading applications onto it and playing with it, basically wasting a whole lot of time that I could have used better in other pursuits. As a good part of my work day is usually spent in front of my computer, it is amazing that I would want to spend more time in front of a screen. Luckily around the same time, my favourite trio of early childhood educators, Friday Bailey, Dawn Lee and Trudi Hobson, contacted me to let me know about the movie that they would be presenting during Unplug and Play week (January 27-Feb 1). The movie “Play Again” is touted as a powerful and deeply moving picture about six children who are used to a life full of electronics being taken on their first wilderness adventure. “Play Again” will be shown at the Salmar, with admission by donation. It’s a fundraiser for the True in the Trees project, to continue to improve the little park next to Okanagan College, includ-

ing providing unique interpretive signage designed to make children think about the outdoors while playing in the park. True in the Trees has already installed some unique drums, and a seasonal xylophone along with the ‘whale drum’ and interpretive signage will be put up in the spring. While I was chatting with them, they mentioned that educators in the classroom are now seeing the signs of too much screen time. One example they gave was that if all the students except for one were handed study materials, the child left out would be less likely to problem-solve and ask for his/her own set if he/she had been raised on too much screen-time; rather, he/she would just sit there. In the electronic world situations like this don’t arise, so it leaves the child defenseless, not knowing what to do when something out of the ordinary happens to them. I myself intend to take part in Unplug and Play week as best I can for my own benefit. I won’t go crazy and flush my new phone, but I think I will do things like play board games and cards with some seniors I know, and read some books I’ve been meaning to get to. For that week, I’m also going to try to use my computer just

throughmylens by Howard Vangool for work purposes, as well as my phone. Actually, I take that back – while I was busy downloading all those new apps for my phone I found a free app called CacheSense that lets me partake in the outdoor sport of geocaching. It’s a relatively new sport where people mostly go around and find little treasure boxes that other geocachers have hidden and uploaded the GPS coordinates to the geocaching site. The little caches contain a paper to sign to say you have been there and sometimes a variety of objects the idea being if you take an object you must leave one of equal or greater value. I enjoy using my phone to go search out these little treasures and it gives me another reason to get outdoors. I might even dust off my snowshoes to find some of the off-road caches. For children and families, there are all sorts of scheduled activities for the week, including a family curling night and family skating night, magic show, board games and story time at the library. The Pirate Loppet takes place at Larch Hills today, and the SilverBacks will be reading to children as well. A full schedule of the events for the area can be found at www.shuswapliteracy.ca. If all of these activities aren’t enough, the chess club is also looking for people of all abilities and ages to come play chess at 6 p.m. Wednesday nights at the 5th Ave Seniors Activity Centre.

Magnesium

Fifty percent of the total amount of magnesium in the body is found in the bones, which points to its importance. Calcium is the central mineral in bone mineralization. However, the quality of calcium formed depends on magnesium, which is important for healthy bones. If it is lacking in our diet it may be necessary to take a supplement. It is also necessary for the many important operations of enzymes, and to facilitate the metabolism of calcium. Magnesium deficiency may occur due to vomiting, alcoholism, inflammatory bowel disease, taking certain medications or other conditions. The minimum recommended daily intake of magnesium is 350 to 400 grams, but more may be needed in certain heath conditions. Diets that provide the recommended levels of magnesium beneficial for bone health include green leafy vegetables. Other foods rich in magnesium are whole grains, nuts, beans, seeds, fish, and avocados. Water contains magnesium, too. Some foods are low in magnesium. For example, about 80% of the magnesium found in bran, rice and wheat germ is removed in the milling process. Therefore, refined

grain products such as white bread and white rice are poor sources of magnesium. Six to nine servings of fruits and vegetables daily supplies most of the amount needed. Several studies have shown that a greater magnesium intake maintains bone mineral density to a greater degree than a lower magnesium intake, but further investigation on the role of magnesium in bone metabolism and osteoporosis is needed Among other advantages of taking magnesium with calcium is the easing of constipation sometimes associated with calcium supplements. The recommended ratio of calcium and magnesium is 2:1. However, a 1:1 ratio has also been used effectively. Magnesium does interfere with certain medications, so before taking any supplement it is best to check with your healthcare professional. Also, remember that sunshine, vitamin D, fresh and nutritious meals, exercise, and keeping in harmony with the inner self are most important for overall health, including bone health.

Ankle sprains

In my years of practice I have had countless numbers of people seek help with ankle sprains. Unfortunately, this is such a common injury that it is estimated that in the U.S. alone 23,000 people sprain an ankle each day. Ankle sprains are very important to look after because research shows that if the ankle is not rehabilitated correctly, 10 years post-injury, over 70% of people will show signs of arthritis in the affected joints. Regardless of the severity of an ankle sprain, treatment goals include restoring strength, flexibility, proprioception (nerve control), and endurance as quickly as possible. There are a few stages of recovery in the healing process which require different treatment approaches. The first stage is when the person cannot place any weight on the ankle. During this time, research shows that wrapping it with a tensor bandage to provide some compression over the joint will accelerate healing by 50%. Gentle range of motion exercises should be done while seated which move the ankle joint, but do not place weight on the foot. Exercises such as rotating the foot and writing the alphabet on the floor with your toe will help aide in the recovery process. I also highly recommend seeking treatment from a physiotherapist. They specialize in rehabilitating injured patients and can speed the recovery process much quicker than if you try to get through this by yourself. The second stage of recovery is when the person is back walking on the ankle and the range of motion is almost normal. At this time it is imperative to start exercises designed to regain adequate stability in the injured ankle. Standing on an unstable object such as a wobble/rocker board should be started. Stand up on your heels and then on your tip-toes on both legs initially and then progress to doing this on just the affected leg. Stand for 30 seconds with your eyes closed to improve balance. At this time it is also important to seek chiropractic care in order to have your doctor check to ensure adequate movement in the joints of the feet, legs, pelvis, and lower spine. The third and final stage of recovery is when full function should be restored. This is achieved through returning to exercises such as running and jumping. The use of a mini-trampoline can also assist recovery by jumping on both feet then progressing to jumping on just one leg. It is also very important to continue working on balance and proprioception through standing on unstable surfaces such as rocker boards etc. At this time, in addition to spinal adjustments, I will often assess and adjust the joints in the foot to ensure full range of motion and function. Restoring proper function in the ankle after a sprain is extremely important, and chiropractors are well trained to help in such a recovery. If you have experienced such an injury call Dr. Gage at Harbourfront Family Chiropractic at (250) 8030224 for an assessment today.

Pies, and new buildings at Haney

www.lakeshorenews.bc.ca

If you’ve got the best pie baking skills in the Shuswap, you are invited to enter your homemade pie in the 18th Annual Best of the Shuswap Pie Baking Contest. Judged by appearance, authenticity, texture and taste, apple, fruit or berry pies must be made the old fashioned way, from scratch. Winners will walk away with this year’s title, an engraved trophy and dinner theatre tickets for two to the 2014 “Villain and Vittles” Summer Dinner Theatre Production at R. J. Haney Heritage Village and Museum. Simply drop off your pies Saturday, February 22 from 10:30–11:30 a.m. at The Mall at Piccadilly, centre court. This popular pie contest promises to be lip-smacking tasty and everyone is welcome to participate! After the judging, slices of the pies may be purchased for $2.50 each with the proceeds going towards extraordinary projects at R. J. Haney Heritage

Village and Museum. For official pie contest rules call the Village at 250-832-5243 or email info@salmonarmmuseum.org.

***** The Salmon Arm Museum and Heritage Association at R. J. Haney Heritage Village is preparing to launch its biggest fund development campaign ever. The Board’s three-year objective is to construct and finish a display of commercial stores and offices on the Village main street. The building will be called the Montebello Block, a nod to the defining structure that

stood in the heart of Salmon Arm at the corner of Hudson and Alexander for almost sixty years. This project will create much-needed exhibition space to depict historic businesses at the Village; with displays to include a general store, bank, real estate-law office, barber shop, newspaper, clothing emporium, and more. Discretely tucked away in the inner core of the Montebello Block will be a much needed kitchen-banquet room to serve the ever-increasing needs of Haney’s popular dinner theatres, weddings, and special events staged through the operating season. Initial design work indicates that over $500,000 is needed in donations, material, and labour. Heartened by the fact that R. J. Haney Heritage Village and Park has always enjoyed tremendous support from the citizens of Salmon Arm and Shuswap, the Fund Development Committee’s slogan for the campaign is ‘It Takes a Community To Raise a Village.’

Project house completed

Eleven students in Okanagan College’s Residential Construction program are job-ready thanks the training they received on the program’s recently completed project house in Salmon Arm. Three community partners, Okanagan College, Shuswap Rotary, and the North Okanagan Shuswap School District came together to make the custom 3,000 square foot, two-and-a-half storey home in Laurel Canyon a reality. “The experiential learning element is unique to Okanagan College’s Residential Construction program and provides students the opportunity to learn the carpentry trade on the job, not just in the classroom,” says Steve Moores, Okanagan College’s Dean of Trades and Apprenticeship. On Jan. 21, an afternoon reception and tour was held to mark the completion of the home. Local politicians and partner representatives attended the event, including many of the students who worked on the home, five of whom are secondary school students receiving credit toward their high school diploma.

“The best type of trades training is hands-on training,” says Rob Kjarsgaard, Okanagan College’s residential construction program administrator. “The students worked on all facets of the home’s construction from site excavation to framing to installing windows and doors. These projects ensure students are more than prepared to enter the workforce when they graduate.” Okanagan College’s Residential Construction program is 26 weeks of training that provides students with the necessary theoretical and practical knowledge to seek employment as an apprentice carpenter in the residential construction industry. Through this program, the students have fulfilled the requirement in their Level 1 pre-apprenticeship. Pictured above: Representatives from partners Rotary Club of Salmon Arm Shuswap and SD 83 joined Okanagan College staff and students (including Griffin Victor who wields the scissors) to celebrate the completion of the Residential Construction Home Project.

CSRD DIRECTORS DISAPPOINT SOUTH SHUSWAP

Three rural directors who had never stepped on Blind Bay Resort’s property and heard Dan Baskill’s plan to improve and develop foreshore, voted against three amendments at last Thursday’s Columbia Shuswap Regional District’s meeting, thus creating a tie vote which meant a defeat. Shock spread throughout Sorrento and Blind Bay and a meeting of residents was called for 2 p.m. Sunday. The Blind Bay Resort hall area was packed as citizens came together to support Dan and Bonnie Baskill and their community-at-large. A rally was planned for Monday at 10 a.m. in front of the CSRD office across the tracks in Salmon Arm. Many placards were made and held high. Close to 50 taxpayers of the area were invited to the boardroom where it was warmer, and spokesman for the group George Landry, suggested that misinformation together with possible procedural errors may have caused the tie, so the group was calling for a reconsideration of the vote. After the crowd peacefully settled into the CSRD boardroom, George Landry also commented that there was a bigger issue at hand. The inequities of the existing CSRD framework result in a rural director from Revelstoke representing 500 to 550 residents having the same voting rights as Area C Director Paul Demenok, who represents 7500 residents. Chief Administrative Officer Charles Hamilton answered the group’s concern advising that although not a perfect system, they are bound by the framework that has been developed for the CSRD at the provincial level and that any reform to that framework would need to be sought through the province. At last Thursday’s directors’ meeting, Paul Demenok recommended to approve the application on the table, with the backing of environmental study groups, Department of Fisheries, the Advisory Planning Committee for the area and other such groups who had all unanimously recommended the application be approved. Landry asked how could a rural director for an outlying area, who had never visited the applicant’s property, in the very least, defer to the recommendations of those committees who had done years of work to bring the application to the table?

A RURAL DIRECTOR WHO VOTED AGAINST, REQUESTS A BOARD RECONVENING

Charles Hamilton shared a new development with the crowd on Monday. He advised that one of the rural directors who had voted not in favour at last Thursday’s meeting had requested a reconvening of the board as she felt that her vote had been cast after receiving misinformation prior to the vote. The information in question was raised by Rene Talbot, representing Silver Creek/Salmon Valley and pertained to the matter of potential houseboat traffic and fuel sales on the applicant’s property. After further clarification, it appears on record that the property will not be used for that purpose. Unfortunately, developer Dan Baskill was at last Thursday’s meeting and could have clarified this point for the directors before the vote

www.lakeshorenews.bc.ca

took place but was denied the opportunity to speak by Chair David Raven. Charles Hamilton will go back and converse with Chair Raven from Revelstoke and seek other professional advice before determining whether or not a reconvening of the directors and a reconsideration of the vote can be entertained. Citizens of the South Shuswap who support the Blind Bay Resort’s application are hopeful for a swift and fair resolution.

A reader suggested a naturopath in Vernon who has natural flu vaccines and homeopathic products. I asked Jude Corfield of Shuswap Homeopathy what she would recommend and that people can buy from natural food stores, pharmacies and some grocery stores. She replied: “To protect against colds and flu try Oscillococcinum, a homeopathic preparation which is one of the top ten selling medicines in France and has been in use there for 65 years. It is now available in Canada. “Influenzinum 9c is the only homeopathic flu product that is updated each year based on the flu strains (including H1N1) predicted by the World Health Organization. It is specially formulated to stimulate the body’s own defense system.” However, once you catch the flu, Jude recommends these which may reduce the severity of symptoms, prevent complications and help speed recovery: Byronia, Gelsenium, Eupatorium and Causticum. For a more specific recommendation, Jude can be reached at 250-804-0104. www.shuswaphomeopathy.ca

I like to see what new products are on the market, so I went to the 12th anniversary of Hardie Home Decorating last Saturday. Wasn’t it just a couple of years ago when I attended the store’s grand opening? You can paint a finish on walls or doors that is writeable and erasable. Or you can apply chalkboard paint that’s available in many colours and turns any surface into a chalkboard. Another product is a complete kit for turning your old Melamine into a wood effect. For other decorating ideas, see Ron Hardie and the staff in the store located not far from Wendy’s and Boston Pizza.

WHY DO PEOPLE RETIRE IN THE SHUSWAP?

Why did a couple from Alberta retire in BC, and specifically, why did Greg and Pam Wenzel choose the Shuswap? Greg replied: “We have many reasons. We moved here to get away from the big city and slow down, and retire in a place with great winter and summer weather, easily accessible health care, and access to unlimited recreation. We did extensive research as to where in BC that met the criteria best, and having vacationed here for many years it was a no-brainer. We have met so many nice people and have very good friendships already in a year and a half.” Greg and Pam settled in the NE part of Salmon Arm.

BRADBURY’S RESTAURANT OPENS ON HUDSON AVE.

Misty and Andrew Bradbury looked for a new place for their restaurant, one that had a warmer climate than Alberta’s, and one with a greater population than the town of Devon. Their restaurant was 15 minutes SW of Edmonton and 10 minutes west of Nisku industrial park, and Andrew wanted a place where he could use the skills he learned at chef’s training at NAIT. They found Salmon Arm to be ideal, and Bill Laird had a location for them two doors up from Lakeshore News. They opened Bradbury’s Restaurant on Oct. 23, 2013.

YELLOWHEAD WAS BEAUTIFUL ON MY TRIP

On Jan. 9 I drove my SmartCar along the Yellowhead Highway from Kamloops to Edson, Alberta. The highway was clear, and almost all the traffic was going west. Trees at high altitudes were beautifully covered with heavy snow. The next day, Jan. 10, I made my way into downtown Edmonton, a city I did not know. It took two hours to find my hotel on Whyte. When I saw signs pointing to West Edmonton Mall, I could find where I was on the city map. Thirty-five years ago when the mall was new, there were hardly any businesses around it. Now there were blocks and blocks spread out from it.

UKRAINIAN DANCERS PERFORM NUTCRACKER BALLET

I went to Edmonton to see Shumka Ukrainian Dancers perform Clara’s Dream, a Ukrainian folk ballet based on Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker. Tchaikovsky, a Ukrainian cossack, wrote the Nutcracker ballet and it premiered in 1892. www. clarasdream.ca, check Facebook, too. It was superb! And fast-moving! Canada’s Shumka was joined by several dancers from Virsky, Ukraine’s state folk dance company, and Kyiv Ballet of the National Opera of Ukraine. Clara was danced by a wonderful ballet dancer from Ukraine. This is the second year for Clara’s Dream. I plan to go again next year. The next day I had lunch and coffee with relatives, then I drove to Calgary. The next morning I met an 86-year-old uncle for breakfast at McDonald’s near Motel Village. The young man ahead of me in the line-up said: “You’re Sally Scales.” I asked how he knew, and he said he lives in Salmon Arm. He came to the game the night before, which was a disappointment. sallys1@telus.net • 250-832-4831 The views and opinions expressed in this article are those of Sally Scales and do not necessarily represent those of Lakeshore News and its staff.

The Mayor responds!

Two weeks ago the Junior Bean Counter announced his desire to be Mayor of Salmon Arm (see Lakeshore News article Jan 10/2014). If you didn’t read the article, the Junior Bean Counter explained how he wanted to paint City Hall the Canucks colours and wanted to rename our streets after his favourite Vancouver Canucks, Miami Heat and New England Patriot players. Well all of his crazy ideas have gone straight to the top and last week the Junior Bean Counter received a response from the Mayor! Here are some excerpts from the Mayor’s response… To the Junior Bean Counter, I am always happy to hear that youth are interested in local government. Perhaps you come by it naturally considering your grandfather’s career. I have to admit I liked your idea of changing the street numbers to names of Vancouver Canucks players. It would be much more interesting if 2nd Street was 2 Sedins Street. We could have Kesler Plaza, Bieksa Drive, Hansen Way, Santorelli Avenue, and a Weise College. We could change all the sign posts to goal posts and stop signs to goal nets. Actually when you start thinking about it there is no lack of possibilities. I heard your brother

was a bit concerned about the firefighters’ vote if the street numbers were changed to player names. I wouldn’t worry about that, they’re a great bunch of guys who like hockey so it should not be a problem. As for painting City Hall, all that glass and concrete is boring so I’m on it. Canuck colours it is! Also we could plan some hockey events. We’ll declare a holiday in February, close the schools for a day, have city crews block off Alexandre Burrows Street and everyone can play ball hockey all day (Ok so maybe there is already a school holiday in February but we’ll use it and claim it as our idea). We will ask everyone in town to wear hockey jerseys and sing the Stompin’ Tom Connor’s hockey song. Hey, let’s think about this for a minute, what if we call Salmon Arm Hockeyvillle!

Junior Bean Counter, as I am sure you can see I am very excited about your ideas. I think we should start implementing the improvements right away. Would you please stop by City Hall and see me. As you can imagine, the Junior Bean Counter was thrilled that the Mayor sent him a response. When I asked him if he was interested in having a meeting with the Mayor he quickly exclaimed, “Sure that would be fun!” So the Junior Bean Counter is currently trying to find time in his busy schedule to meet the Mayor. He and his team of minions (little brother/campaign manager, cousins and friends/rowdy supporters and strategists) are going to put together a whole list of discussion points for the meeting. Stay tuned as Mall Arkey has exclusive inside coverage!

Philomena

After being dismissed from the Labour Party in disgrace, former journalist Martin Sixsmith (Steve Coogan) reluctantly takes on a human interest story when approached by the daughter (Anna Maxwell Martin) of Philomena Lee (Judy Dench). As a teenager, Philomena gave birth out of wedlock to a son, Anthony, who was given up for adoption in America against her consent by the nuns at the Catholic convent where she lived. Desiring to know his fate, Philomena and Martin, despite their many differing opinions, unite in a search to find Philomena’s long-lost son. This remarkable true story of faith, forgiveness, and a mother’s love is sure to surprise you many times before reaching its tearfully profound conclusion. Dench is spellbinding and Coogan is a dramatic revelation; he also produced and co-wrote the film’s script, based on the book. Philomena shows at 5:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. on January 25th at the Salmar Classic Theatre.

Politicians not explaining about underpass Baskill application supported

Wow. 1325 people dragged themselves down to City Hall during the busy Christmas holidays and voted against City Council’s proposal to spend hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars now, and $millions later, on the Ross Street underpass. Thirtysix more votes and the Council motion would have been defeated. 1325 people is 50% of the number of people who voted in our last civic election for the candidate getting the most votes – Mayor Nancy Cooper. And 70% of the number the elected councillor with the fewest votes – Chad Eliason – received. You might think it would give politicians pause, when 50 to 70% of the number of people who voted you in now vote against the largest discretionary spending measure of your term. And that it might encourage you to address the many unanswered questions around that spending. But apparently not. No one at City Hall has ever

responded to the fundamental question of why we need a 9 million dollar underpass, given that 90% of trips across the tracks have no delay, 1 in 10 trips have a few minute wait, and there are other areas of the City with longer emergency response times. No one at City Hall has explained why it is not financially irresponsible to commit to spending $330,000 of your money now, before any information is forthcoming from the City about why a 9 million dollar underpass is needed, how it will affect the downtown, how it will be financed, and how it will impact other spending priorities and your taxes. Because when that information is finally presented to the entire electorate, including the many people who still have no idea any of this is happening, that electorate may reject the underpass. And then hundreds of thousands of our tax dollars will have been wasted. Bill Grainger, Salmon Arm

We should have the right to choose raw milk

ramma love G We

from the LakeshoreNews Gang!

B-DAY

Just a statement and opinion I would like to share: if the government wants us to eat GMO’s, allows a ton of sodium to be put in our foods, and has absolutely no problem feeding us that, even giving us the “choice” to do so, then why can’t we have the “choice” to buy raw milk? I drank raw milk as a child and as a grownup, and I believe and feel that if the government is giving us [bleep

bleep bleep] foods to choose from than we as a society and nation should have a right to “choose” to buy raw milk or not. We understand the risks, and obviously they don’t care about our risks with canned foods that contain [bleep] and they allow them on the shelves. Canada, give us back our right to make our own choices for this. Thank you. Melanie Morton, Salmon Arm

Reconsideration is requested on Dan Baskill’s application for #701-65, Blind Bay Resort. Please know that there is a very large majority of community support for the captioned application. The Advisory Planning Commission has also unanimously endorsed this endeavour also. Our Area C Director, Paul Demenok, has given his support. It is grossly unfair that last week three non-resident directors voted against this project, and three staff did not vote at all. This is not democracy whatsoever, and important details have been overlooked and/or ignored. It is patently obvious that those that voted against, had not done their homework and read the application and did not realize or perhaps even care that the majority of people in the Blind Bay area are whole-heartedly in support of this wonderful planned project. There will not be large houseboats allowed, and there will not be fuelling involved. Environmental considerations have been met also. We homeowners and business owners in the area are greatly angered by what this means, or could mean to our property values and future well-being. We need the jobs that this application can provide, and we also want to support the Baskills as they have worked on their application for nine years, jumping through all the hoops that have been put before them. We cannot understand how this travesty of justice has happened and we request as soon as possible, that reconsideration be given to this very worthwhile project. Thank you. A. & J.

After lowering the ticket price from last year’s event, the number of tickets sold was still lower than expected, making it difficult to raise funds. However, those who attended the event had a great evening. Cook

Phat pheasants

Edie Swanson of Salmon Arm sent in a photo of three pheasants resting on her grapevine support, taken on the last day of 2013. She and her husband Jack see the pheasants in their backyard every morning cleaning up the discarded seeds from the bird feeders and scrounging anything left on the snow, and she feels they are very well fed in the Raven neighborhood.

Shack Creations provided a delicious meal that was worth going up for seconds. The DJs of Microsound Systems had nearly everyone out of their seats dancing with a variety of oldies, rock and country songs. The New Year was brought in with a traditional countdown, champagne toast, tiaras and tooting horns, followed by the unveiling of the Twin Anchors houseboat vacation winner, who was Gerald Freeman of Armstrong. The celebration continued into the early hours of 2014. In hopes of making this event a successful fundraiser, the Hunter Range Snowmobile Association will give it another shot. A couple changes will be made to help advertise the event and increase attendance from the public, for as they say, “the more the merrier.”

C’mon out and freeze your toes off on Saturday, February 22! The Lighthouse Shelter, Salvation Army Food Bank and Second Harvest Food Bank are hosting the Coldest Night of the Year, a fun, family-friendly 5 & 10K fundraising walk to support the hungry, homeless and hurting in the Salmon Arm community. These cold winter months can be especially challenging for those without secure shelter or a steady income. Our local shelter and food banks provide a warm bed, a hot meal, and some food for the cupboards of our neighbours who need help. Sheldon Feener, Salvation Army,

and Diana Mangold, Second Harvest, are asking for the support of our community in getting involved in this event. Here in Salmon Arm, our local goal is $50,000 and 300 walkers. Says Sheldon, “Now’s the time to register and start fundraising, don’t put it off!” Diana adds, “If everyone who walks will raise at least $200, we’ll be able to meet our goal!” Registration and fundraising is easy to do on the updated website: www.coldestnightoftheyear.org Now in its third year, Coldest Night of the Year has spread to over 60 locations across Canada, and organizers hope to raise $2.5 million for local communities.

SilverBacks Junior ‘A’ Hockey Club

T3 Tips split a pair on the road

By Peter Kociuba The A&W Peewee Tier 3 SilverTips went one up-one down on the weekend, dropping a game to division leading South Okanagan, before picking up their first win in their final game of the season. Connor Kociuba got the Tips on the board in their Saturday tilt vs South Oak hammering the puck past the home team’s netminder on the rebound from a Damian Earl shot on the power play. Ethan Lans would also score for the Silvertips on a breakaway, who suffered a 12-2 loss in the game. Sunday’s game turned out a little better for the Tips, as they defeated home town Penticton 7-3. A scrambled first few minutes resulted in the Tips head coach

calling his timeout early in an effort to settle the troops. The effort seemed to bring Salmon Arm back to earth, and a Blake McBeth slapper from the point would pinball its way past the Penticton goaltender just 3 minutes later. Penticton would come on strong and score a pair unanswered to take the lead, but the Tips wouldn’t be held back. Matt Campbell flew down the ice late in the first on an end to end rush while on a 5 on 3 PK, slipping the puck into the net to tie it up with just over two minutes left in the opening frame. The Tips would head into the first intermission with the lead after a Mason Balon wrister just 26 seconds later. Damian Earl and Dom Barbosa each tickled the twine in the sec-

ond to spot the good guys a three goal lead heading into the third period. Henry Lenarduzzi and Barbosa with his second would seal the victory for the Silvertips, who skated away with a 7-3 win. Although the whole team had an exceptional game, the line of Lenarduzzi, Earl and Kociuba had a strong effort for the Tips, as evidenced by their names peppering the score sheet. Defenseman Kai Fazan was a tower at both ends of the ice, and added 3 helpers. Earl had this to say about his team’s play: “We did it because we hussled and took away their time and space.” The Tips play a couple of exhibition games Saturday and Sunday, before playoffs begin the following weekend.

By Lisette Stroo-Mayes Two weekends ago, we successfully hosted our Novice Hockey tournament in Salmon Arm with 4 of our home teams and 8 visiting teams from all over BC. The Salmon Arm White Wolves had a great weekend of games; every game was a close one and played with a lot of heart on both sides. The Wolves lost the first game, won the next 2, and ended with a very exciting tie-game to close up the tournament. Way to go, Wolves!

The Salmon Arm Silver Speedsters had a fun-filled tournament weekend: Lots of laughs, face paint and team spirit. There was music in the dressing room to pump everyone up before the game, high fives and lots of cheering in the stands from family and friends. Great team spirit, Speedsters! The Salmon Arm Mustangs also had a fantastic weekend of games; with each game, they played more and more as a team. They started out with a loss, followed by 2 wins

and fought hard for a tie in the last game. Well played, Mustangs! Lastly, the Salmon Arm Sabres worked together as a well-oiled machine; they skated hard, took shots with a vengeance, and worked together to control the puck – and they won every game they played! Congratulations to the Mustangs. It was an excellent weekend of great sportsmanship, team effort and pure joy. Hats off to all of our novice teams.

Sharp Shooters continue winning ways

Sadi Weed and Cadence Petitclerc-Crosby keep the ring away from their opponent. Photo contributed.

By Peter Kociuba The Shuswap Sharp Shooters Novice Ringette team maintained their spot at the top of the standings on Sunday, as they defeated Westside on the road by a score of 9-3. Cadence PetitclercCrosby opened the scoring for the Sharp Shooters, just three minutes into the game and her first of 3 on the night. Natasha Kociuba ripped a shot past the Westside goaltender just 45 seconds later to put the home town Shuswap girls up 2-0. Mackenzie Mount rippled the mesh to put the

Sharp Shooters up by 3, three minutes later, before Westside got on the board with a single of their own. The teams would trade goals late in the first period, Ryann Decker sliding one in for the Shooters, and Brianna Howard would put one in late in the frame to carry Shuswap into the first intermission up by a score of 5-2. The second period continued much the same as the first, with the visiting Sharp Shooters dominating play at both ends of the rink. Maintaining positioning with the centres

Pennask trout under threat

Spring had finally arrived at our fishing lodge at Postill Lake. In the warming breeze, the smell of lodgepole pine scented the air as I made my way to the banks of Heron Creek, shotgun in hand. A male ruffed grouse drummed on a log in spruce timber nearby. Sure enough, there they were, those rascals, poking down the spawners. At the sound of the shotgun blast, the dozen great blue herons took flight, squawking loudly. The big birds were migrating north to their nesting sites, possibly to the colony near Vernon. As far as I was concerned, they could leave my darn trout alone. Hundreds of rainbow trout were working the gravel. Those from our walk in Heron Lake were going downstream. Spawners from the larger Postill Lake were going upstream. Regional biologist Chris Bull and I would be netting the large lake later, to determine numbers of fish, their size, and food availability. This is done by dividing the lake into four sections: A–D, and using a fine variable size, long mist gill net, set at dusk, from shore to an anchored boat 80 feet out. In the early morning, the net is retrieved. The fish are examined, tummy contents checked, scale samples taken, then the next section is done. The survival rate of trout eggs in a natural stream is about 30 per cent, due to siltation smothering, washouts, or other events. In contrast, hatchery survival runs at about 90 per cent. When hatched, trout alevins (tiny ones), will wiggle their way up from 3 feet in the gravel to the surface, as free swimmers. Spawning was taking place in many streams at fishing lodges, from neighbouring Beaver Lake and the Dee Lake chain of lakes, to Headwaters, and Hathiume Lodges, close by Westbank/Summerland. But there was one fishing lodge on the shores of large Pennask Lake, run by Ray Redstone, that was unique. Each spring, the fish and game branch would take eggs from Pennask Creek to the Summerland hatchery. The fingerlings to smolts (3.5 grams), to catchables (10-12 inch), were the prime main trout for stocking approximately 260 lakes in the Interior up to the Cariboo. In 2013, 25,000 trout utilized the stream to spawn. Over a million eggs are taken each spring to be reared in hatcheries. According to an article in the Vancouver Sun on Jan. 6 by Larry Pynn, the Pennask creek drainage is a 1.245 hectare area, created in 2001 to protect the internationally significant rainbow trout brood fishery. But, like so many other major accidents and events happening recently, such as derailment of trains carrying oil and chemicals, to a sunken tug fuel spill in Squamish, Pennask Creek is being threatened by a combination of acidic chemicals, or ARD (acid rock drainage). When the Okanagan connector was being built, the highway rock near

shuswapoutdoors by Hank Shelley Pennask summit contained pyrite. The combination with air and water, created an acidity as well as elevated concentrations of sulphate, iron, zinc, and copper. The Ministry of Transportation was charged under the fisheries act, and pleaded guilty, with a fine of $1,000, and $45,000 going to the environmental damage fund. In response, the province installed two treatment systems (acid drainage machines) to raise pH levels. Now the province has spent $4 million on mitigation measures, and the situation has not improved. It can be a long drawn-out process. An environmental consulting company is now being contracted to a tune of $150,000 to work on a solution, around acid rock drainage/leachate, and improve conditions for what some say is the world’s richest wild trout stream.

cycling the defense so as not to go 4-in and superior passing was a thing of beauty to behold. PetitclercCrosby would get the first and second of the final frame to round out the hat trick and Sequoia Robinson and Katelyn Chapman would finish things off for the Sharp Shooters. Shuswap welcomes the same Westside team to the Shaw Centre this Sunday.

Facts about the Summerland trout hatchery: It was established by the BC fisheries branch in 1928, but trout had been raised there before that, starting in 1918. It is the oldest hatchery in the province, and uses spring water, with eggs taken from Pennask creek spawners, to rear and stock the 260 lakes. When we operated our lodge, we found a small deep lake in winter, while on a trapping run. We asked the hatchery about stocking brook trout in Margie Lake. This was 1978. Bud Green, manager. Sandy McDonald technician. They provided us with 2000 fat healthy 3.5 gram fish, we walked into the lake, using metal tanks/gang valves/plastic lines, to a main oxygen tank. Fish suffer motion sickness, like kids in a moving vehicle. Walking slowly, we stopped twice to fill cold water into the tanks. Mortality can occurs if you have more than 11 degrees in temperature variation. For more information on the hatchery, and Freshwater Fisheries Society of BC, go online and google Summerland fish hatchery, BC. Fishing report: Gardom Lake is slow, with soft ice. Phillips/Fleming, Skimikin way – also quiet. Skamana, off Bear main, Adams River way, is slow. White Lake is producing nice rainbows, but there’s thin ice by the firehall side. The outlet of creek bay is doing better, with thicker ice. Shrimp/mealies are the best bait to use. Things have slowed down in the past week. White Lake, like other lakes, turn over creating an algae bloom, slowing fishing catch. It’s being out in the fresh air for the day – that’s important! We’ve seen more kids and parents on the ice. Way to go, Dad!

Victor Wilford BATES Victor Wilford Bates passed away in Shuswap Lake General Hospital, Salmon Arm, BC on December 20, 2013 at the age of 70 years.  The Funeral Service was held from Broadview Evangelical Free Church, Salmon Arm, on Monday, December 30 at 11:00 a.m. with Pastor Dave Penner officiating. Tributes and special music were shared by family and friends.  A reception followed in the Church, catered by the ladies of the Church, allowing time for family and friends to continue sharing memories and stories of Vic.  Born in Hardisty, Alberta on October 17, 1943, Vic grew up with a strong work ethic and a creative entrepreneurial mind.  He was employed in the oil patch prior to moving to Salmon Arm with his wife Alice and children Tammy and Leo in 1973.   Within a week, Vic quickly purchased Crown Furniture, and he and Alice became involved in the community, expanding the furniture store and location.  Vic was a visionary, and was committed to Salmon Arm.  His passion for real estate earned steadfast respect among fellow business owners, city officials, and countless citizens for his various developments. Some of his visions included the development of the Salmon Arm Waterfront, the Prestige Inn, the current location of Churches Thrift Store, and all we see near the wharf.  He was a strong supporter of the Nature Habitat, donating his personally owned land to the cause.  After giving Salmon Arm years of energy, he focused on Crazy Creek, east of Malakwa. Vic and Alice gained many new friends with this development, and he was in his glory with watching the transformation of the area.  Vic leaves his loving and dedicated wife Alice; two children, Tammy  Bates and  Leo (Sharon); grandchildren, Tyler, Porter, Ava, Aidan, Drake and Jax; brothers and sisters and an amazing community of friends. Email condolences may be sent to Vic’s obituary at www.bowersfuneralservice.com  Donations in his memory of Vic may be sent to the Salvation Army in Salmon Arm, or the Samaritan’s Purse.  Funeral arrangements were in the care of Bowers Funeral Home and Crematorium, Salmon Arm.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Shuswap Community Foundation in Barry’s name.  These donations will be directed to the Barry Dearing Family Foundation, which is being established to provide funding to disadvantaged elementary-aged children throughout the Shuswap who could benefit from financial support in their athletic or artistic endeavours.  It is our hope that this will be a lasting and fitting legacy that honours Barry’s contribution to Shuswap youth.

AQUARIUS

Aquarius, although you have many friends, you recently have only spent time with a select few. This week is a great time to reach out to those friends you haven’t seen in awhile.

PISCES

Your competitive juices will be flowing this week, Pisces. Enjoy the competitive atmosphere but don’t take things too far.

ARIES

Now may be the time to try something new, Aries. You are not one to shy away from anything, but right now you’re a bit apprehensive about things. Take a leap of faith.

TAURUS

Taurus, many people look to you as a leader, and they are wise to do so. You are especially trustworthy, and you will be asked to solve a few problems this week.

GEMINI

Gemini, there won’t be much time to enjoy recreational activities this week, so you may have to find a new way to let loose. Rest assured there will be more time for fun down the road.

CANCER

Cancer, a new opportunity comes your way but you’re not quite sure if you’re ready for such drastic changes. Take your time before making a final decision.

LEO

Leo, no matter how hard you try, some people just can’t see things from your point of view. Don’t take this personally, as everyone is entitled to their own opinions.

VIRGO

Virgo, sometimes it seems like you have all of the answers, while at other times, you might not know how to approach a situation. Take some time to analyze your approach.

LIBRA

Feeling homesick, Libra? If so, make some postholiday plans to visit with friends or family you didn’t get a chance to see during the holidays. Enjoy this time spent with loved ones.

What’s Where When

SCORPIO

Scorpio, you like to stay busy. But you sometimes feel overwhelmed with all that you have to do. Stop biting off more than you can chew and take things one task at a time.

SAGITTARIUS

Sagittarius, now is a good time to make resolutions and reconnect with distant friends. It is good to rekindle relationships and commit to spending more time with friends and family
