It’s almost 9:00 a.m. and Dale Kinnee is busy setting everything up. The lights are on and she’s selecting the music for the class. “Today we’re going to have the Eagles; other days we might have big bands, 50s or 60s. We have ‘girl’s

knees and backs aren’t the same and we’ve modified to allow for joint issues.” Dale has been leading My Prime Condition Fitness since 1995, but the class itself has been going longer than that. Over the years the location has changed and

good fit for anyone no matter what age or fitness level. The current age level ranges from 60 to 80+. No matter what age you are, says Dale, everyone can benefit from keeping fit. “It’s important to keep your fitness level up. It’s good for your

now they meet at Shuswap Dance Centre (the former Elks Hall by Fletcher Park) on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday mornings. “It’s basically geared to the senior population,” says Dale, adding that this low-impact aerobics class is also a

they change to their indoor shoes and make their way to the circle. It’s a little unusual to do aerobics in a circle, Dale says, but that’s the way the group has evolved. They start off with some easy small movements to get everyone warmed up. The music is loud enough but doesn’t drown out Dale’s instructions. The movements are simple to follow and everyone works at her own level. Then comes the grapevine, a popular aerobics and dance move that involves a cross-over step. No problem. When she switches it up to an L-shaped grapevine, one of the ladies gets really mixed up. [OK, it was me, but I knew enough to just keep moving and pretending I knew what I was doing. Nobody seemed to notice, or maybe they did and no one thought anything of it.] As a low-impact aerobics class, the goal is to get the heart rate going without any jumping or jarring

th

movements. The floor is the kind used in gyms and dance studios and is easy on the joints. After 40 minutes, Dale tells the ladies to grab a mat. Some of the mats are the usual kind you would find in any gym, but some are nice thick padded mats geared for a little more comfort. Everyone follows Dale’s lead but some of the ladies modify the moves. As they go into the final stretches, they talk about upcoming events. It’s just a warm-up chat really – they go for coffee after their workout. The ladies clearly love coming to their class and they laugh as they remember the fashions from 30 years ago. “I still have the weights that we hung around our ankles and my roll-up socks.” “We had little belts.” “Slouch socks and leg warmers. We were more fancy in those days – now comfort is the key.” “I love seeing the level of fitness that can be achieved in the older population,” says Dale. “And everyone is different and their level is different. No one worries, everyone just enjoys themselves.” “Yes, it’s not competitive,” another adds. “What I like about it is it’s a full body workout.” “And for our brains – she changes up our routines like the L-shaped grapevine.” [Maybe they did catch the fact that I found that challenging.] “There are some strong friendships here,” says Dale. “They’ve been through raising their children, divorces, death of spouses – everything that comes in life.” Classes take place Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 9-10 a.m. at the Shuswap Dance Centre on 6th Street S.E. [The last class before Christmas break is Dec. 16, and classes resume on Jan. 6] The first class is free. Drop in fee is $6. Punch cards are available. And everyone, regardless of age or fitness ability is welcome. “The only hard part is getting to the door,” says Dale, “after that, everyone is friends.”

I was discussing nutrition the other day with a patient and the topic arose of the importance of eating a healthy breakfast. I was explaining that my regular morning routine consists of preparing an energizing smoothie using my Vitamix Blender to start my day off right. After discussing the importance of actually eating breakfast, we got onto the topic of what to put into those smoothies to receive the greatest health benefits. In addition to the usual smoothie staple ingredients like fresh kale, ginger, spinach etc, there are a number of “superfoods” that are packed with the highest concentrations of potent health-promoting nutrients. Here is a partial list of some of the most common superfoods that everyone should consume: Everyone’s favorite A complete Family Support Service

Superfoods cacao (raw chocolate). I wrote an entire article last month about the health benefits of eating raw chocolate. It is one of the best antioxidants on the planet, it elevates mood and energy, protects the heart, and even balances brain chemistry! Just make sure it is not overheated when it is produced or you lose many of the benefits. Maca – a Peruvian fruit. Maca really benefits your energy levels, strength and stamina, and even libido! Hemp products. When they are consumed in their raw form they are high in protein (33%), contain lots of iron and vitamin E, and hemp is a great source of omega-3 fatty acids. Goji berries. This superfood has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for over 5000 years because of its amazing health properties. Goji berries are loaded with amino acids, minerals, antioxidants, and B&E vitamins, just to name a few. Raw honey and bee products. Organic, raw bee pollen is one of the most complete foods found in nature because it contains essential amino acids, probiotics and important enzymes. Sea vegetables such as kelp and chlorella help to detoxify your body and provide trace minerals. Many are

high in iodine so they help your thyroid gland as well as your adrenals and hormone function. Spirulina and bluegreen algae are very high in protein and contain many healthy enzymes and minerals. There are more superfoods that can be added to the above list but these are some of the most common. I recommend stocking up on these so they can easily be added to your morning smoothie to make the right choices for a healthy diet. When you go to purchase these at your local health food store, you may find they are a bit pricey, but due to their high concentrations, just a little added to your daily diet will go a long way in promoting good health. To ensure optimum health be sure to eat breakfast and when you replace the bowl of “Froot Loops” with a superfood smoothie, you will be amazed at how “well” you begin to feel! Improving and maintaining the health of your family requires constant, conscious effort. The work done in your kitchen is one of the most important aspects of health and wellness. For assistance with improving your health, call Dr. Gage at Harbourfront Family Chiropractic at (250) 803-0224 for an assessment today.

Kudzu

What is this kudzu that is being talked about? Kudzu is also called pueraria lobata, and it is a perennial vine plant belonging to the pea family. It is native to southern Japan, southeastern China and some parts of southern Asia. In the United States, it is mainly found in the southeastern states where the climatic condition is so favourable that it is difficult to stop its spread. In Chinese medicine it is commonly used in conditions such as tinitus, vertigo, headaches, and to treat alcoholism. The roots contain starch and important nutrients and are used as an herbal medicine. Like soy, it contains some isoflavonoids, which have health benefit properties. Kudzu can be a good alternative for people who are allergic to soy, and also contains many other flavonoid-type antioxidants. It is rich in protein. Kudzu root extract has been used for many years for treating alcoholism. It is used to suppress the cravings associated with the addiction to alcohol. It blocks the undesirable intoxicating effect and helps in sobering up faster. Some studies have also found that kudzu helps in improving the function of a liver that has been affected due to alcohol consumption. However, further research is needed in this respect. In rodent experiments, kudzu has been shown to lower cholesterol. This root may also be effective in reducing migraine or cluster headaches. Like soy, kudzu may help in reducing the symptoms of menopause in women. It is important that women at risk with breast or ovarian cancer should consult with their doctor before taking soy or kudzu, or any other herbal remedies used for treating menopausal symptoms. Some of these herbs have an estrogen-like effect, which may put women with ovarian or breast cancer at greater risk. Kudzu can be taken either as a tea or in the form of tablets. In some stores it may be available as a tincture. Dosages can vary from 30-120 Mg, two to

Astralagus

We are in the middle of cold and flu season again. This is the time to make sure our immune system is up to the task of killing off invading germs, viruses and bacteria. Astralagus is a perennial plant native to China and has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for thousands of years to strengthen the body and prevent disease. It gained popularity in the West due to extensive scientific studies that began in the 1970’s, documenting the ability of the herb to stimulate the immune system, fight bacteria and viruses, reduce inflammation and protect the liver. Astralagus is an adaptogen, which means that it increases our body’s response and resistance to stress. Stress is a leading cause of a suppressed immune system and causes inflammation and weakening of the adrenal glands. The adaptogenic properties of astralagus help reduce cortisol levels and strengthen the adrenals. Astragalus is rich in the flavonoid querctin, and offers antioxidant benefits to people with severe forms of heart disease by relieving symptoms and improving heart function (revealed by recent research in China). Astralagus helps bring our body into a natural balance and state of homeostasis. Please note: Those with autoimmune diseases should consult with a health practitioner before using astralagus. three times a day. Kudzu also has mild blood-thinning properties, so it may be necessary to reduce the dosage of blood-thinning drugs such as coumadin, warfarin, heparin, trental, or even aspirin. Remember, even herbs have side effects so before starting on a program do consult your doctor or pharmacist.

REGISTER THIS MONTH TO BE AN ORGAN DONOR

Tony Beeftink of Salmon Arm received a new heart 25 years ago. Someone was dying who had wished all parts of his or her body could be used for transplant at the time of death. That person’s blood type was the same as Tony’s and Tony had the greatest need for a new heart so it was flown to Vancouver. On Boxing Day 1988, the donor’s heart replaced Tony’s diseased heart. Tony changed from being at death’s door to living a full life. Please register to be an organ donor so you can have parts of your body used for transplant. Go to www.transplant. bc.ca or phone 1-800-663-6189. Give your BC Care Card number. Once you’ve registered with the Organ Donor Registry, health care professionals in each BC hospital can access your registration through a secure database by entering your BC CareCard number.

FILL YOUR TRANSPLANT FORM AND I’LL MAIL IT

Next Friday and Saturday I will be at the Christmas Craft Market at Centenoka Park Mall, as part of the Shuswap Farm & Craft Market. I will be selling Seymour Arm books that I published, in which Gwen Bauer and Estelle Noakes wrote the history of that Shuswap community. I will also be selling will kits that have a lot of information and forms for you to fill your own living will and last will and testament. The kits are also sold at Lakeshore News. At my table I will have organ donor registration forms that I printed from the website. If you fill one, I will mail it for you. You can choose to donate all organs and tissues needed for transplant or research, or not to donate certain parts of your body, and you can even choose not to be a donor. I hope to see you next week. The Christmas Market at Centenoka will be held on Fri. Dec. 13 and Sat. Dec. 14 starting at 9:30 a.m.

INVASION ATTEMPT AT YANKEE FLATS HOME

A homeowner with security measures in his home called 911 at 2:30 a.m. on Nov. 26 when several men were attempting to break into his place. Police came from Vernon and Salmon Arm, cordoned off the area around the property and, using descriptions provided by the homeowner, located two vehicles containing six men. The men, aged 21 to 38, are known to police. Three are from Kelowna, two from Kamloops and one from Skookumchuck. They will appear in court at a later date.

WHAT IS THE BEST SECURITY MEASURE?

The Yankee Flats homeowner must have motion sensor lights that came on when intruders neared his house, and shone on the two vehicles because he was able to get a description for the police. Did an alarm in his bedroom wake him when the lights came on at 2:30 a.m. or did noise from the attempted break-in wake him? What is the best security system for a home, especially in a rural place like Yankee Flats?

WE’RE A DRINKING AND DRIVING COMMUNITY

Salmon Arm police say they have taken 219 impaired drivers off the street over the past year. Were you one of them? If you were, did they impound your vehicle for one week?

LAST-MINUTE SHOPPERS IN B.C.

Many people are last-minute holiday shoppers. In B.C, between Dec. 15 and 24, 40 per cent of the entire holiday season sales are made. Many purchases will be paid by charge card and will take at least a year to pay. If you are one of those, have you finished paying for the gifts you bought last December?

BLIND BAY COUPLE RETURNS FROM MEXICO AND HEADS STRAIGHT FOR OUR WALMART

Usually the couple stops in Kamloops and shops at Walmart when driving home from the coast, but this time they came straight to Salmon Arm’s new Walmart. But they bought gas in Kamloops where it was only $1.17 per litre. They also stopped for supper in Salmon Arm. Then they drove home to Blind Bay.

SALVATION ARMY’S KETTLE AT WALMART

Last Friday morning, I jingled bells when I stood beside the Salvation Army’s kettle inside Walmart from 10 a.m. to 12, wearing my yellow Citizen’s Patrol jacket. Three other volunteers from the patrol took the afternoon shifts. That day, I’m told we we raised $379, which is enough to provide food and toys for a single parent with three kids this holiday season. It was extremely busy, being a payday for many and just a few days after government payments were made to bank accounts like mine. During my two hours, there were only two periods when no one entered the store for 30 seconds. Otherwise there was a steady stream of shoppers entering the store, which made me very happy, and many made donations to the kettle. One was a cheque for $50.

SOME COMMENTS TO THIS WRITER AT WALMART

“Oh, you got the job?” I replied: No, I’m not a greeter, I’m a volunteer for the Salvation Army. “What an improvement to this property!” “Where is the automotive section, the oil?” Way over there. “Has a certain doctor come in? Be sure to welcome him when he comes.” “Just think, all these people used to shop in Vernon.” “I enjoy reading your column. I pick up the paper once a month. I live in Revelstoke.” “Are you going to stop writing for the paper” Only if they fire me. “I have a large item to donate to the hospital foundation as a fundraiser for the CT scanner upgrade. How do I do that?” Write me your name and number and I’ll have someone contact you. “You got the job? Good for you.” No, I’m not a greeter yet, but one day I will be. “I’m a nurse from the prairies too. Sure, I might join Citizens Patrol, but not till spring.” “I went to every Roughrider game when I lived in

Saskatchewan. See my cap?” To my fellow Anglicans, I said I’d see them in church on Sunday.

MORE BELL RINGERS ARE NEEDED THIS MONTH

Captain Sheldon and Sharon Feener are always looking for more volunteers for the kettles for a two-hour shift in one of the six locations around town. Call the church office at 250-832-9196 or the cell at 250-803-1496.

Happiness is a clean bum Last November, Harbourfront Family Chiropractic devised a way to “give back” to the community by creating the “Clean Bums for Christmas” event. It

was a roaring success and they would like to thank all of their patients for their generous contributions. By the time the dust settled, HFC was able to

donate over 5000 diapers (including new baby blankets, formula, bibs and toys) to the Shuswap Family Resources Centre “Healthiest Babies Possible” program. This event consists of Dr. Gage donating four hours of his time for chiropractic adjustments in exchange for a bag of new diapers. Bring in a new bag of diapers and receive a complete new patient examination (including digital x-rays if necessary). Or, if you are already a patient, receive an adjustment! Harbourfront Family Chiropractic is repeating this event on Tuesday, Dec. 17th from 9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. Stop by and drop off your contribution to local babies in need. Donations will be gratefully accepted even if you don’t want chiropractic care!

TrailRider project rolls forward

The Shuswap, British Columbia – The Shuswap TrailRider program just took a huge step – or roll – forward thanks to a $7400 grant from the Salmon Arm Savings and Credit Union’s community sponsorship program. The grant combined with a grant from the Shuswap Community Foundation announced earlier this fall, has allowed local TrailRider champion, Debra MacDonald, and the Shuswap Trail Alliance to purchase the second TrailRider. There are now two TrailRiders available for anyone in the Shuswap to book out and use on Shuswap Trails. People with mobility challenges in the Shuswap can now use the region’s growing recreational trail system thanks to the efforts of a very determined champion. Debra MacDonald first brought the TrailRider program to everyone’s attention just over a year ago. She had the opportunity to try one and realized she could realize a dream she thought was out of reach: everyone could experience the beauty of local natural recreational trails, regardless of whether they could walk or not. The TrailRider is a balanced seat on a single wheel that is remarkably easy to navigate with the aid of two friends – or sherpas, as the TrailRider community refers to them. The design was innovated and actively promoted through the Sam Sullivan Foundation, based out of Vancouver. And it has taken off. Communities throughout the province are setting up programs that allow individuals, families, and groups to book the TrailRider for an afternoon, a day, even multi-day trips. Debra has been gathering inspira-

tion and support from similar programs in Powell River, Vernon, and Victoria, and even as far away as Australia. “All of those community programs found three was the magic number to get people actively booking and using the TrailRiders,” says Debra. “And we now have two for people to book here in the Shuswap.” And just for a suggested donation of $10. “We really, really want people to use these!” encourages Debra, noting the program is only $3000 short of getting the third and final TrailRider. Donations are still being received to meet this final goal. Before Debra’s illness with multiple sclerosis, which put her in a wheelchair, she worked in the forest industry for 20 years. “This gave me opportunities working outdoors that most people with a disability will never experience,” she says. The TrailRider changes that. “My goal is to get people with all disabilities to experience the great outdoors. Support from BC Parks, the Shuswap Community Foundation, Salmon Arm Savings and Credit Union, Stella-Jones, the Professional Foresters Association, Shuswap Lady Striders, and so many individuals have made that a real option for people in the Shuswap.” To book the TrailRider, call Debra at 250-832-1353. The TrailRider website can be found at www. shuswaptrailrider.com. Charitable donations can be made by mailing a cheque to the Shuswap Trail Alliance, PO Box 1531, Salmon Arm, BC V1E 4P6, and clearly mark that it is for the TrailRider Project; or call the Shuswap Trail Alliance at 832-0102.

Turning 40

They say “40 is the new 30.” I bet the person who came up with that saying wasn’t 30 years old! These days we go to great lengths to avoid getting older; or at least avoid looking and acting like we are getting older. I say, enough is enough – let’s embrace it! Deal with it, you’re getting older, you’re not as important as you think you are, and the parts aren’t working the way they used to. Whew! That was the pep talk I gave myself this morning as I stared into the mirror looking at the sags, wrinkles and receding hairline. Yes, it is true. Mall Arkey Junior is turning 40 today and as hard as I try, I am losing hair where I want hair, and growing hair where I don’t. To help counsel myself, I decided to look at what changes when you turn 40. Here we go… You care a lot about your lawn. I admit it, I love my lawn! I am not sure why or when this happened, but I enjoy a beautiful green lawn. When I was kid I enjoyed being up to my knees in mud and the feeling of mud squishing between my toes. Now?! That would feel gross! You don’t like loud music. When I was a kid/young adult I used to love “crankin’ up the volume”, but now loud music/noise just gives me a headache. Also, no matter how loud it is, I can’t make out the lyrics anymore. You watch movies with subtitles. I don’t mean watching foreign films (although that is another thing people do at 40). What I mean is, the kids are sleeping and as mentioned in #2 above, you don’t like loud noises. The problem is your hearing is bad from listening to loud music when you were young, so you have to turn on the subtitles. Driving around looking at houses is exciting. For whatever reason, you are now fascinated with siding and soffits. These were the

Come to office in person to place ad. 161 Hudson Ave. No business names can be mentioned.

Sunday afternoon drives that almost brought you to tears when you were a teenager; now, you can barely get to sleep Saturday night just thinking about it. Well, actually that is an exaggeration. You probably go to bed at 9:00 p.m. and are out like a light. You have no fashion sense and you don’t care. Every morning I have to ask my wife if what I am wearing matches. I literally have no clue! I see a shirt I like and a pair of pants that are comfortable and I go with it. Nine times out of ten my wife sends me back to my closet to change, but I would rather just stick with what I am wearing than be inconvenienced with changing again. Who cares what my friends think; none of them have matching outfits either! So as you can see there are a lot of things that change when you turn 40. Things that used to bother you seem petty, and things that used to be petty now bother you. Either way, we need to embrace our journey to the “middle ages” and accept the fact things aren’t what they used to be. That’s all folks… now I have to get back to running on my treadmill, eating quinoa and trimming my ear hair.

No sooner had I pressed the send button than I began to wonder what I had gotten myself into. What was I thinking? I eyed my tea skeptically and tasted a sip. Nope, it was just plain tea – no alcohol had been involved in the production of that first message. I should explain. It all started with some of the young ladies I use as models contacting me asking if I had anything happening, antsy to get in front of the lens again. I sometimes ask one or two of them to stop by my studio for various reasons such as testing a new piece of equipment or sometimes I just want to try out a different lighting set up. After being contacted twice earlier that week and knowing that the ladies didn’t have a lot of money to be spending on a photo session but not having an excuse to get them into the studio, I happened to notice an ad on one of the photography websites I was research-

ing and it showed a fifties-style pinup model. A glimmer of an idea came into my head and I shot a message off to one of my favourite models, Nevada, asking her if she could find enough girls to make a calendar. The message that started it all. She was pretty sure she could, and so she started asking around and I put a note up on my Facebook page asking if anyone was interested. My inbox exploded and in under an hour I had sixty messages from various ladies. Nevada chose some and I responded to some others. Nevada was willing to accept the role of doing all the scheduling and took charge right away. She did an excellent job and soon there were 12 other ladies scheduled for the studio. I quickly made sure that the ladies all knew the parameters I set for the sessions. All the girls had to be eighteen or over and it would be a fifties-style calendar, nothing too risqué. The girls would not make any money or get charged but would receive a disc with images from their session on it. I also would do the photography for free and through calendar sales, would just reimburse myself for any props or materials I needed for the photo sessions and for the cost of printing. All the rest of the money would be donated to the Shuswap branch of the BC SPCA. That is, if we made any. I told the girls to each try to come up with a theme and I would work with whatever idea they had when it was their turn. For two weeks I watched as the excitement built among the ladies. They would post things like “Just nine days until my photo shoot. I am going to be a pin up model. I am so excited.” One of the girls ordered new shoes and one even ordered a fifties-style bathing suit all the way from England just for the session. I was so glad to see that they were enthused. I have always felt that part of my job as a photographer is to make people realize that they are good-looking no matter what they think,

and that they don’t need to weigh ninety eight pounds and be perpetually dieting in order to be pretty. Several of the

ladies were mothers, and I wanted to show them that they were beautiful after having had children. My goal is not to degrade women but in fact to empower them and show them that they are each unique and beautiful individuals. I wanted the ladies I photograph to know they are special and that they indeed can be or do anything, including being a calendar model or whatever else they set their mind to. Soon the day of the first set of shooting arrived, and the studio filled with the sound of babies and chatter and the scent of hairspray and makeup. I only scheduled a very short time for each session, so had to work with each new model quickly to try to capture her in the way that I sensed that she wanted to be portrayed. Although I tried to stick with a fifties-style theme, I soon realized that some of the ladies weren’t familiar with that style and sometimes the props we had just didn’t quite work. Most of the sessions were 30 minutes or less, which is not a lot of time when working with newer models. It often takes nearly that long for them to get comfortable with the lights and camera. Once again Nevada stepped up and did an excellent job helping me with lighting and set changes, as well as assisting the other ladies. Sometimes I got wary boyfriends to step

throughmylens by Howard Vangool

in and lend a hand, asking them to hold a light or reflector for me. After they got over their initial apprehension, they were thrilled to be able to help. After all what guy wouldn’t want to assist in a beautiful model’s photo shoot? After I got all the girls photographed I stayed up late for several nights editing and choosing photos while in the daytime I searched out a printer. My heart sank when the first quotes I got for printing were just not viable and so I checked online and could get a better price there but I really wanted to use a local business. I had to get a better price though so I put the word out asking about printers and Miss January, hooked me up with Justin from Total Office Supply who was enthused with the idea. Total Office Supply not only gave me an

excellent price on printing, but Justin also laid out the calendar for me, saving me from an entire new headache. Soon the very first Lovely Ladies of the Shuswap calendar rolled off the press and the girls began happily selling them, even offering to sign on the page they are featured on. One of the girls, Nikki, who is featured on the March page, took the calendar to Tarnow’s Hair and Day Spa where she works and Anita put up a big sign and offered to sell them there. Hopefully we can sell all of the calendars and then I will get all the girls together to go and present the SPCA with a big cheque. Calendars are available for $20 from any of the ladies featured inside or from Tarnow’s in Centenoka, and also at Lakeshore News on Hudson.

Cees will conduct these two songs along with some other songs. Some of the songs Jim will entertain the audience with are ‘The Winged Stallion, ‘The Most Wonderful Time of the Year’ and ‘Satin Doll,’ a classic from great American jazz composer Duke Ellington.

After the concert, please stay awhile longer to enjoy refreshments with the members of the band. Doors will be open at 7:00 p.m. Admission by donation.

The best-kept secret in the Shuswap

One of the best-kept secrets in the Shuswap is the incredible health care system that so many of us take for granted. Last weekend, I experienced some mild heartburn on two separate occasions. On the insistence of my wife, I made an appointment to see my doctor late Monday afternoon. Within 10 minutes of my being in Dr. B’s office, he picked up the phone and requested Dr M. and the hospital to please book me for a ‘stress’ test, for Tuesday at 9:00 a.m. By Tuesday noon, I had completed the treadmill stress test, an ECG, a CAT scan, and full blood work and lab results. All the medical staff I encountered were very accommodating, cheerful, informative and reassuring; their infectious approach and attitude greatly reduced any stress that I might have otherwise felt about the uncertainty that I faced. Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday was spent stabi-

lizing and prepping me with appropriate medications, while under constant monitoring. Believe it or not, I even enjoyed the food and was also mindful of the proper attention given to my cardiac dietary needs. Early Thursday morning, it was off by ambulance to the cardiac centre in Kelowna. Again, the paramedics were efficient, considerate and encouraging. Within minutes of my arrival at the hospital, I was introduced to ‘my team,’ and put at ease with their explanations as to the procedures I would be undergoing. These doctor and nursing teams specialize exclusively in cardiac-related issues, and deal with 12-15 different cases every day! Wow – are they ever efficient and cheerful; it was actually fun being in their presence. Imagine looking at a screen as a camera explores the arteries of your heart, while listening to rock and roll and the

playful banter of an enthusiastic team. An hour and a half later, after two well-placed stents, my 90% ‘widow-maker’ blockage had been rectified. Then, once again I was ‘prepped’ for the ride back to Salmon Arm.....armed with cardiac knowledge, a new-found respect for our health care system, and even pictures of my heart! Do you believe in miracles? I sure do! So please, give generously to the Shuswap Hospital Foundation. They can (and will) work miracles for you and your loved ones! Be a part of the best-kept secret in town. As for doctors: B, M, and H: Thank You from the bottom of my ‘heart’ and a Merry and Blessed Christmas to you and all the wonderful medical staff who have given me and my family perhaps the greatest gift one could ever receive at Christmas!

Lack of children’s hospital care appalling

I really am flabbergasted with the lack of care in Salmon Arm for our most vulnerable residents; children. I am also staggered by the number of individuals that are seemly unaware of the situation! It seems strange that we have approximately 200 births a year in our maternity ward; yet the minute they are released, those children and parents are not considered important enough to even have one room designated for child care! Other issues that surprise me are: 1. We need to have a paediatrician in town to warrant an area to treat children. How did we all survive under the care of our home town GPs? 2. Why is there any question about the necessity of child care in the hospital? 3. Why is it considered okay for kids to be sent to Kamloops or Vernon for care?

For those that have an economic status where money is no option, perhaps you are okay with that; however, this area is full of single moms or moms on their own because husbands and dads work out of town; or they have no support group to help them. Who deals with those children? Are those children suffering longer than necessary because there is not proper care for them in our hospital? Children are ambulanced to Vernon or Kamloops. When they are well, who brings them back? If you are on welfare or don’t drive and are on your own, that becomes a hardship! Who looks after the remaining family left in Salmon Arm? Take a look at the demographics of this area. In 10 years 50% of the present population will have passed away. Who is going to replace those people if we don’t

make this area appealing to families? If I had kids and knew about this situation, I would live in Vernon or Kamloops. Why would I take the risk? We need an area for children in our hospital, no question! I think it is horrible that that part of the population is neglected with the reason being no money! I would suggest that is another reason why child poverty is also put on the back burner. This is a priority and needs to be addressed. I don’t want to settle and I don’t think this requires a perfect world or a fortune, to offer this service to the area!

To combat bad breath, consider investing in this inexpensive plastic or metal device to remove bacteria from the back of your tongue. Some studies suggest that adding tongue scraping to your regimen may be slightly more effective at eliminating breath odor than just brushing your teeth.

Letters to the Editor

White Lake Residents’ Association pleased with progress The White Lake Residents’ Association would like to express its positive experience with BCTS, regarding the past logging blocks within our community and the recent road building above the south end of White Lake. This past spring, BC Timber Sales attended a public meeting in White Lake and presented a proposed “road building and logging block” plan. Residents expressed concerns to BCTS and forwarded those concerns to the WLRA. The Vernon Forestry Office was the location of further in-depth conversation with respect to our community values. While discussing the issues, BCTS officials were receptive with ideas and scenarios we presented and openly discussed possible alternatives. When the

final plans were brought forward, the results showed that BCTS had considered all our issues and addressed them, once again, a little further than expected. The WLRA is very pleased that this type of relationship can exist between government and community. I was invited to attend an inspection with BCTS on Oct 18/13 of the new roads being built above the south end of the lake. BCTS is holding true to their commitment of diligence by insuring that the strict requirements in the plan are followed. We are also pleased with the results of the logging block above our community last winter – the block that was highly criticized and saw five months of strong opposition from our community. In the end, with a lot of input from the WLRA, BCTS

produced a plan that would change community and government involvement. BCTS commented to us that they were “pleased with the strong effort of the WLRA in seeking solutions that met both community objectives and the objectives of the working forest.” BCTS also advised us that they have had numerous field trips that included forestry staff from around the province to the White Lake blocks, “regarding the difficult but ultimately, very successful resolution to the controversial block adjacent to the community.” The WLRA is pleased that BCTS is taking a second look at communities and how to deal with them in a better way. The following comment is from BCTS: “BCTS is certainly going to use the

outcome of the K1K7 block discussions, as a pilot example of what can be achieved when groups work together, as we plan to enter the working forest adjacent to other communities.” They go on to say, “The WLRA has provided an excellent information pipeline for BCTS to effectively share information regarding future forest management plans and how BCTS could mitigate community impacts”. The WLRA is pleased that the process is workable with government, when both sides are able to move within the perimeters of legislation. The fact that BCTS is here to stay, is an important reality and it is not going to go away. Communities would better self serve themselves by accepting these facts and focus on working with what cards are in the

Veterans honoured

As part of events commemorating the 70th anniversary of the D-Day landings, France wishes to honour the veterans who took part in these operations. Are you a Canadian Second World War veteran or do you know any Canadian veterans who took part in the D-Day landings, combat operations, or the campaign to liberate France from June 6, 1944 until August 31, 1944? If you are veteran or know a veteran who was involved in these events, the French government would like to nominate you for the National Order of The Legion of Honour” the highest honour conferred by the Government of France. Nomination forms along with all required information are available at The Royal Canadian Legion Branch 62, 141 Hudson Ave. (Phone 250-8323687.) These nominations must be prepared and sent to Ottawa as soon as possible.

deck and start achieving the best results possible for the community. We are encouraged that government agencies have the will to establish meaningful relationships with us and the WLRA is looking forward to creating that environment to allow such bonds. The WLRA is committed to our community, to represent it at a time of need. The volunteers who dedicate their time to the executive of the WLRA have a deep passion to protect our community values and protect the community way of life, the very reason we all live here. We are always looking for new members and residents who may wish to join our effort. Your help is needed and your community needs you. Bryon Every, President, WLRA

I don’t know where I heard that there really are never any new ideas, just old ones put together in different ways, but it seems to be an adage that really fits interior design and decoration. I don’t think I’ve seen a really new design idea in forever; but I’ve seen a lot of old ideas re-done. So it leads me to the conundrum, “Is it OK to copy?” And my answer is yes, it is. Provided you give credit where credit is due. Let’s look at this. If you see a living room in a magazine, and you love it to pieces, is it wrong to copy the elements for your own living room? Of course not. Every design is a culmination of the designer’s own experiences, which are nothing more than a lot of ‘snapshots” of other designers’ work. If we have someone teach us a skill, chances are we will emulate the teacher until we get enough snapshots of our own, and then the skill will morph into

A Very Merry Christmas Benefit Concert Sunday, Dec. 15 2 p.m. Carlin Hall, Tappen

something that represents our own skill set. And that brings us to creativity. I really believe that creative people are those who are not bound by the accepted, but are those who look at alternative ways of doing things, of painting things, of making pies or arranging furniture. That, to me, is true creativity. There are just levels of expertise at doing this. The best interior designers in the world are masters at manipulating colour and textures – probably in part because they do it so often. And so you, the DIY-er, should not discount yourself as being uncreative because you can’t see the nuances of colour the expert can see. If you can accept that creativity is making your house a home; or is showing your child how to draw a stick figure that looks like a kitty, or is deciding how to stretch the soup because you just got three extra guests for dinner, you can take a lot of stress off yourself. And that is something we all want to do, I believe. So go ahead and copy, give credit, make the copy the best you can, learn from it and make something different next time. My New Year’s resolution: I’m not trying to be fantastic, I’m just trying to be useful.

‘Coyote Reads’ program

Last Tuesday, Nov. 26, the Okanagan College Salmon Arm campus celebrated the Coyote Reads afterschool literacy program for Aboriginal elementary and middle-school students with a treasure hunt, presentations, and bannock and tea. Generously funded by the Vancouver Foundation, the literacy program partners four North Okanagan schools, School District #83, Okanagan College and the Literacy Alliance of the Shuswap Society (LASS) to provide a culturally relevant program that boosts students’ self-confidence and reading skills. “We received $53,500 from the Vancouver Foundation to run Coyote Reads this year,” said Irene LaBoucane, School District #83 Principal for Aboriginal Education North Okanagan. “The program interweaves cul-

tural teachings, authentic Aboriginal reading materials, literacy strategies, and a fun and supportive atmosphere to improve participants’ reading skills.” “We have so much to celebrate. We are seeing tangible positive outcomes for the students. As well, there have been unexpected benefits. The kids are making friends, developing a sense of love and belonging and we can see them really looking forward to their twice-weekly afterschool sessions, and especially the monthly trips to the College.” The program has two levels: Coyote Café for elementary students and Coyote Club for middle school learners. LaBoucane says, “Because the program is in its third year, some of the older students who aged out are able to continue their participation as mentors to children entering the program.”

Tracy Riley, Okanagan College’s fundamental literacy instructor says, “The College is an enthusiastic partner and offers the benefit of access to the Dr. Andrea Deakin collection of thousands of works of children’s literature housed here in our campus library.” “We are situated within walking distance to a middle school and several elementary schools. The students and their parents become very comfortable visiting. We’re very much hoping some day they return to us as College students to continue along their educational pathway.” The Coyote Reads program runs twice-weekly after school. Once a month, students go to the College for a snack, library visit, story time and a reading session where they can choose to read to themselves or to another student. Above: Shuswap Middle School students spell out the word ‘Coyote’ after hunting for the letters all over the Okanagan College campus in a treasure hunt, part of the introduction to the Coyote literacy celebration that included pupils from schools all over the district.

Roots and Blues seeks new artistic director

Hugo Rampen, the Festival’s Executive Director, has decided not to renew his contract for the 2014 Roots & Blues Festival. He will remain at the post until a suitable replacement is found or until March to help train and mentor his replacement. The board of directors is currently seeking applications for an Artistic Director and General Manager role. They are looking across Canada and beyond for the ideal candidate. Larry Keats of the board’s human resources committee says they’ve already received five applications. Recruitment is taking on a modern twist. Besides the usual job posting sites, the society is embracing the change as an opportunity to recruit talent to the Shuswap by developing a multi-media YouTube recruitment ad to share the vibe and the beauty of the

Shuswap. The online component of the recruitment campaign can be seen on the Society’s YouTube channel here: http:// youtu.be/5kRistDUs7A Rampen moved to the Shuswap from rural Ontario seven years ago with his family. His three boys are grown now, but he admits coming to BC gave them all opportunities they wouldn’t have had in the east. His wife, Gail Mowatt is also involved in community activities, such as hosting a show on the community radio, CKVS. Rampen says he is proud of “building a really good team” and “up-ing the presentation values of the Festival.” He says in the past seven years the Festival has become more community driven and a strong economic driver in the Shuswap. An Okanagan College study estimates the event brings in about four million dollars in

spending. A quarter of a million dollars pays local salaries, businesses and services. The three-day Festival and weeklong pre-Festival outreach concerts, Routes & Blues, “puts smiles on faces and money in pockets,” according to Rampen. Rampen says he’s applying for jobs in the arts, but would be enticed by self-employment or a more physical job. He has no immediate plans to leave Salmon Arm. He is working with the staff and board to help find the ideal replacement. He says this person will have a broad passion for music, and not be afraid to go outside their main musical interest. For instance, Rampen says, “in the interest of the Festival, First Nations music is important because it reflects this region and is what the audience and community wants.”

Good News Bears pay a visit to Piccadilly Mall Mike Roberts and the Global Okanagan team were at the Mall at Piccadilly last Wednesday promoting the Good News Bears program. For each donation made, customers were entered in the draw to win a Good News Bear. The stuffed bears are all sponsored or donated, and all proceeds go to support local food banks.

Recline Ridge For this coming holiday season, and all of the wonderful meals that are planned, Recline Ridge can definitely provide the perfect wine accompaniment. What Christmas dinner would be complete without a wine to pair with the roast turkey? Recline’s Shuswap Serenade is a proven favourite. As an alternative, for those who may prefer a red wine with their festive meal, Recline Ridge’s new Gamay Noir would be an excellent choice, as would the “Make Me Blush” rose-style wine, especially with that holiday ham. With the excellent selection of wines available, there is definitely something at Recline Ridge for every palate and food-pairing possibility. Recline Ridge will be open on December 7th and 8th, 11:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m. as well as December 21st to 23rd, 12 noon–5:00 p.m.

will pair with most foods. The wine begins with lovely fruit and floral aromas and delivers a perfectly balanced palate with a refreshing citrus-y finish. It’s also a favourite as a fireside drink with a bowl of assorted nuts or crackers and cheese. Related to pinot noir, Ovino Black Riesling 2012 (red) displays the same elegance as its more famous cousin. Light in colour and with medium body, lovely cherry and dark berry flavours mingle with nuances of French oak and the ripe tannins, leading to a silky smooth finish. This wine is

very versatile and can be paired with many different foods, such as lighter red meats, white meats and also salmon. Ovino also offers Gewurztraminer, an off-dry white; Pinot Gris; a dry white; Entice, a sweet aromatic white; Blush, a dry rose; and Marechal Foch, a dry red. All wines at the wine shop are $15.50/bottle. As a winter special, Ovino Winery offers 10% off on 6-11 bottles, mix or match; and 15% off on 12 or more bottles. Or, get 12 bottles of Black Riesling or Blush for $120.

This is a provincial event and the theme celebrated this year is “Heritage Afloat!” There are several events planned during the week – the 18th annual “Best of the Shuswap Pie Baking Contest and Auction,” children’s crafts and gold panning, a pioneer breakfast, and there will be many displays depicting the history of Salmon Arm at the mall and the silent auction. With the support of the local businesses and the hard work of the volunteers last year, the silent auction raised over $5000 for R. J. Haney Heritage Village & Museum.

This accomplishment was due to the strong commitment of the volunteers who canvassed the business for donations. There are 18 silent auction routes that need volunteers. Each route will take a commitment of about 6-8 hours over a 3 week period. If you would like to help with the success of this fun community event, please call General Manager Susan Mackie at 250-8325243, or email her at info@salmonarmmuseum.org. Packages for the silent auction canvassing routes will be ready for pick up starting December 11, 2013 on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 10:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m. at the museum in the Village.

A kernel of truth

www.lakeshorenews.bc.ca

It seems that the more information floats our way, the more confused we become. Separating the chaff and the wheat kernel through scientific and medical publications is about as time-consuming as going back to the grain-milling stomping grounds of old. It’s going to take some grit and determination to get to the bottom of this debate. For at least 25 years, I’ve been keenly interested in how our digestive system keeps us well. My digestive tract was not processing the food that went down the pipes in a timely manner. Extra incentive was genetically provided with my mom’s early death from colon cancer. I had three little girls running around the house and I wanted something better for them than a sick mom or the loss of their mom (me!) before they graduated from high school. So the quest for a slick and speedy, but not too slick and speedy food exit strategy was initiated. The first ‘a-ha’ moment occurred within a week of eliminating all dairy. Allergies and digestive issues have become the new scourge of disease that affects almost every family in one way or another. It’s miserable and frustrating and allergies are hard to recover from once your immune system is tuned in to destroy these “foreign” half-digested food proteins from your bloodstream. The latest

What everyone’s reading...

foodsalive

by Afke Zonderland independent research is now pointing to glyphosate (the active ingredient in round-up) especially when combined with Bt toxins (in Roundup-ready corn, canola oil, soy and beets) as the culprit that pokes holes in our intestinal lining and also act as an antibiotic. Antibiotics destroy our healthy gut bacteria, which as we know leads to poor digestion. Can you imagine half-digested strawberries, carrots, nuts or wheat proteins taking a little swim in our bloodstream as they escape through our Bt-permeated gut lining? Is gluten the only culprit in wheat intolerances, or should we suspect a dose of glyphosates on the wheat that bakes our bread? (Glyphosate helps the farmer harvest a little earlier and assures that the kernel is dry enough for winter storage.) Well, it seems that we can only guess. Our food is not labeled with these hidden ingredients, and studies that link these additives to our bio-dome are not done on a meaningful level. What we do know is that organically grown and harvested grains and vegetables contain none of these herbicides and pesticides. My bread choice is from Silver Hills and or locally from The Little Red Hen.

LAURA’S CROSTINI’S WITH CHERRY TOMATOES One baguette from the Little Red Hen, sliced, buttered and baked crisp Topping: 1 ½ cup each of red and orange cherry tomatoes, quartered, marinated in chopped basil, balsamic vinegar, extra-virgin olive oil, and chopped garlic. Assembly: Spread crostinis with boursin or

another soft (goat) cheese. A slice of Gort’s Havarti will work fine too (remember that their cows don’t eat GMO corn). Allow the tomatoes to drain and top crostinis with this colourful mixture. Add a finely-chopped jalapeno pepper to the mix for added heat or gear up your pepper mill.

Help food banks

SASCU holds the fundraiser each year during the Christmas season to support the local food banks as part of its commitment to our communities. For the entire month of December, ten cents from every transaction on all SASCU ATMs is collected and donated. The proceeds help support the Salvation Army Food Bank in Salmon Arm, the Eagle Valley Community Food Bank in Sicamous, and the Sorrento Food Bank. “We started this fundraiser in 1996 and including this year’s donation, SASCU has contributed over $60,000.00 to the food banks in the communities we serve,” says Michael Wagner, CEO of SASCU Financial Group. And don’t be surprised if your SASCU ATM withdrawal includes a $50 instead of a $20! Random $50s will be loaded in each ATM to thank the community for supporting the campaign and local food banks. The drive-thru ATM at the Salmon Arm Uptown branch is now operational, increasing the number of SASCU ATMs in the Shuswap to ten. In addition to the ATMs at each branch, SASCU ATMs are located at The Mall at Piccadilly, Centenoka Park Mall and Tim Horton’s at the top of the hill. SASCU ATMs are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week at all locations. SASCU Financial Group offers a full range of banking, insurance, investment services and financial advice. Our branches are located in Salmon Arm, Sicamous and Sorrento with two locations in Salmon Arm serving the community. Visit them online at www.sascu.com.

Rod & the fitness club shuswapoutdoors

www.lakeshorenews.bc.ca

Rod had always been a hunter and angler. But he also knew he was out of shape; on his late season elk hunt, he huffed and puffed over a rise in the Kootenays, just as that small herd of elk with a 6 point bull vanished into far timber. Arriving home, he told his wife he needed to do more to get in shape. Next morning, at the breakfast table beside his bowl of puffed wheat and fruit, sat a gift certificate to the downtown fitness centre, compliments of his wife. Being two weeks before Christmas, he thought it a great time to get in shape! Rod phoned the club, and made reservations with a personal trainer named Tawny. Rod’s wife was pleased with his enthusiasm to get started. The club encouraged Rod to keep a diary of his progress. So starting at the beginning of the week, Rod’s interesting ordeal began. Monday: It was tough to get out of bed, but Rod arrived at the club, and Tawny was waiting. She described herself as a 26-year-old aerobic instructor and athletic swimwear model. Rod felt she was a goddess, with blonde hair, dancing eyes, and a dazzling smile. Tawny began by showing Rod all the machines, then took his pulse after 5 minutes on the treadmill. She was alarmed that Rod’s pulse was so rapid, but he contributed that to standing right next to her! Next, Tawny was encouraging, as Rod did his sit-ups with tummy muscles aching, as he sucked it in while she was beside him. It was going to be a fantastic week, especially

with her being there! Tuesday: Rod drank a whole pot of coffee, finally making it out the door. Tawny made Rod lie on his back and push a heavy iron bar into the air. Then she put weights on it. Rod pushed them up. Tawny’s smile w a s

worth it! Wednesday: Rod woke at 6 a.m. The only way he could brush his teeth was to lay the brush on the counter, and go back and forth with his mouth! Tawny was waiting as Rod stiffly entered the club. Rod’s chest hurt as he got on the treadmill, so she put him on the stair monster. Rod got halfway through climbing, but Tawny was impatient with him, saying his screams bothered the other club members! Thursday: Tawny was waiting impatiently. Rod was stiff, sore, and a half hour late, from trying to tie his shoelaces. He had driv-

en to the parking lot with his Geo Tracker, parked, then stiffly walked through the club doors. She put him right on the dumbbells. Rod was beginning to hate Tawny! All the other club mem-

bers were busy cycling, rowing, or on the treadmills. When she wasn’t looking, Rod ran and hid in the mend room. She then sent Lars to find him. As punishment, she put Rod on the rowing machine. Friday: Tawny had Rod work his triceps through his pain and stiffness, and once that didn’t work, she put him on the treadmill, from which he fell off, landing on a health and PE teacher. Why couldn’t it have been someone softer, like a drama coach or choir director? Saturday: Tawny left a message on Rod’s answering machine in her shrill, grating voice,

wondering why Rod hadn’t shown up! However, poor Rod didn’t have the strength to work the TV remote; so instead, he watched 11 hours of the Weather Channel! Sunday: A thankful day off! Stiff and sore, Rod’s infatuation for the beautiful Tawny, and the fitness club hitting rock bottom, Rod had the church van pick him up for services, so he can thank the Lord that the week of fitness is over, and the knowledge that his wife will choose a more appropriate gift next time, like a root canal or vasectomy. Poor Rod. The last time I spoke to him, he had hobbled out to our goose blind, with two canes and his shotgun along with two pillows, vowing never to go near a fitness club again!

Coyotes take down deer in winter as well. But through it all, vehicle/ wildlife collisions take a toll on our wildlife, as the animals browse alongside highway/road corridors, in search of salt. Currently, deer are searching out alfalfa fields and crossing busy highways like at Tappen, near the Co-op store and dairy farm. Here, each winter, several animals are hit. This week alone, two animals have been hit, and were found lying in the roadside ditch. It’s also the distress and damage or injury to driver or passengers that affect us most. No one want this, so please slow down where you think there are animal crossings and fields. We all drive too quickly these days, on busy highways and side roads, not apprehending what may walk out from a ditch, or suddenly cross in front of your vehicle causing consequential injury or death to the animals and/or folks, and damage to the vehicles. Although we have to shovel and deal with the white stuff, winter is definitely here, so get out and also try to enjoy a brisk walk or hike!

Are you in need of a home for your dog to stay when you are away? Or someone to drop in to your home to walk your dog, care for your pet, check your house, or do lawn care, cleaning or pet waste disposal? Cozy Critter Care is there for you when you need it, with individual care and love for your pets, and attention to detail for the results you expect. Cozy Critter Care is licensed and insured for your peace of mind. Patrice Le Blanc has worked for a vet and volunteered at the SPCA. She has owned a wide array of furry and feathered animals. References are always available. Dogs staying in Patrice’s air-conditioned home become part of the family (and often sleep in the bedroom). Forest trails are literally out the back gate for your dog to enjoy. The fenced yard allows your dog to play, wade in the pool or just relax off-leash. The dog beach is close by for those who like to swim. Pet sitting and/or security drop-in visits are available in Salmon Arm and area, including Gleneden, Raven, Canoe and Ranchero. Some pets (cats especially) are more comfortable staying in familiar home surroundings. Unfortunately, anything with a hoof or overnight visits to your home cannot be done by Cozy Critter Care. Updates can easily be passed on to you via phone, text or e-mail (photos included!). Dog walking can be done from your home, at the dog beach or park. Last minute walks are welcome. Mid-day visits to feed, let out your dog or play can be done also. In addition to pet waste removal, Patrice can also do lawn and yard care, house clean and run errands. Cozy Critter Care is there to transport your pet to the vet or groomer, whether you are able to come along or not. Patrice takes the time to get to know your pet, allowing for a smooth transition, especially for pets with separation anxiety or not used to being taken care of by someone they don’t know. Senior pets and those with special needs or requiring medication are welcome. A visit (free!) with your pet is required to ensure a good fit for all, with no obligation. Contact Patrice today at 250-253-3715, and see what Cozy Critter Care can do for you!

Dad started early in life learning the butchering trade, working at the Burns, then Larry Doyle’s and Dick Askew’s abattoirs and butcher shops, branching out on his own in 1952 when he started his business of livestock trucking along with buying and selling cattle. In the late 1960’s he became a Provincial Brand Inspector, retiring in 1989. He was also a leader of the Shuswap Beef Club for a number of years. Mom and Dad enjoyed the bus trips to Reno, their trips to Nashville, the Alaska Cruise, but the farm tour to New Zealand and Australia was the highlight of his travelling. We would like to extend our heartfelt Thanks to Dr. Aitchison, all Dad’s care aides, hospital medical staff and one special nurse, Margaret, who looked after Dad on his many trips to the hospital this past year. The family would like to thank Bowers Funeral Home for their professional services given to us in our time of need and special thanks to Jack being there as a family friend.

Gabrielle Paula Donahue 1921 - 2013

Gabrielle Paula Donahue (nee Casavant) passed away at the age of 92 on November 25, 2013 at Pleasant Valley Manor with family at her side. She had the undying love and respect of her large family and everyone who knew her. Gabrielle was born on April 6, 1921 in Vonda, Saskatchewan to Emile and Emelda (Grenier) Casavant, the 6th child of 12. She trained as a nurse in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan where she met and married Donald Joseph Francis Donahue. They lived in the lower mainland before arriving in Salmon Arm in 1962 with their family of 6 children. She was a caring and loving nurse; still remembered by many of her patients.

Palm Desert, California

Nel Peach traveled to Palm Desert in February 2013 to take part in a Palm Springs 5k walk. She said it was quite cool in the morning when they started out, and that she managed the walk in spite of less than optimal blood sugar levels. They had break-

fast in Palm Springs. Nel is pictured here back at her hotel after the walk. Nel receives $10 for having her picture printed and is entered into the Lakeshore News Travels To contest for 2013.

Moscow, Russia

Jack and Edie Swanson of Salmon Arm traveled to Russia in late September for a two-week river cruise from Saint Petersburg to Moscow. They describe it as being very cool and wet, with an older ship that had been refurbished and updated, but still below their standards for a river cruise. The crew was all Russian - the servers generally spoke good English but the sailors spoke very little English. They also felt it

was a very long air trip for only two weeks. Jack and Edie are pictured here in front of the Bank of Moscow in Moscow. They noted the similarity between this and the Bank of Montreal. Jack and Edie receive $10 for having their picture printed and are entered into the Lakeshore News Travels To contest for 2013.

Cleaning cross stitchery

www.lakeshorenews.bc.ca

Hello Reena, I have about ten cross-stitch pieces I never got around to having framed, sadly I kept them in a dresser in the basement which was flooded this past June and they are very badly stained from the flood water. Can you suggest some way of cleaning them? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you and I really enjoy your column in the paper each week. Rena Dear Rena, Before attempting a thorough cleaning of the pieces, you will want to test the back side of the embroidery thread for colour fastness. If colors run, bring the art to a professional dry cleaner to remove the stains. If the colours stay intact, hand wash each piece separately in a tub of baby shampoo and water. Move the fabric around in the tub. Drain and refill with clear water. Soak the crossstitch for a few moments to remove shampoo. Lay flat on a white towel to dry. Cover the art with another white towel. After 30 mins. remove the towel and let air dry. When the art is almost dry, cover the pieces with a towel once again and press with a warm iron to remove wrinkles so that the art lays flat. Dear Reena, I am having a gathering at my house in a couple of weeks. My job is to prepare a snack for the evening but I work until 4:00 p.m. and the quests are coming at 7:00 p.m. Do you have an easy snack suggestion that I can prepare ahead of time and keep warm in my slow cooker? I am planning to have a fruit and veggie platter but I want something a little snackier, if not I will just serve chips. Thanks, Betsy Dear Betsy, Here is a tasty idea that everyone will enjoy. Combine the following: One quarter cup melted butter, 4 tsp. Worcestshire sauce, 1 tsp. salt, 1 tsp. garlic powder, half tsp. onion powder and half tsp. sugar. Stir well. Fill your slow cooker/crockpot with handfuls of Chex cereal, pretzels, pieces of taco chips and nuts; you will need about 7 cups of crunchy foods. Pour butter combination overtop. Cook on low for two and a half hours. Stir every 30 mins. Dear Reena, Several years ago, my leather sofa became badly scratched during a move. The moving company sent an independent repairman to deal with it. He applied some sort of liquid, buffed it, and it looked like new! It has since acquired some more scratches, but I can’t get any information from the moving company, and the repairman has moved away. Do you have any idea what the remedy might have been, or perhaps you can suggest another solution.

Solutions&Substitutions

By Reena Nerbas Florence Dear Florence, While there are short term fixes such as shoe polish and olive oil, they are not a long term solution to repairing scratched leather. The label on your leather furniture will tell you what type and finish you are dealing with, knowing this will make a difference in the technique used for repair. If you see an “A” on the cleaning code, that stands for Aniline leather “P” for Protected leather and “N” for Nubuck leather. Aniline leather has a wax finish. If this is your leather, heat the area and use your fingers to redistribute the wax or add additional melted wax to the scratched area. Most leather furniture is labeled “P” and the fabric is dyed or painted and then top coated with a lacquer finish. The repairperson that you described may have sprayed the area with lacquer. If you are tackling the damage, a leather repair kit is the easiest way to hide scratches. “N” leather is usually completely dyed and therefore scratches do not typically remove colour. When in doubt, contact a professional restoration service. Feedback from Readers Who Care: Re: Cooking rice I would like to pass along my recipe for perfect rice. Using a tight fitting lid pot, place 1 cup long grain, parboiled rice, one and three quarter cups water, half teaspoon salt and 1 tbsp. Becel or butter. In an uncovered pot bring to a boil, stirring once or twice, cover and lower heat to lowest setting. Cook 20 minutes....no peeking. If all water hasn’t been absorbed, cover and continue for 3-5 minutes longer. Let sit, off heat, 5 minutes then stir. Keep up the good work. Diane Re: Mice Just read your suggestions for repelling mice. Have tried Irish Spring soap and it seems to work fairly well – also mothballs work well but they repel humans as well (especially yours truly). To keep mice away from my ultra-light aircraft stored in a hangar, I run the tires onto sheets of aluminum foil. Theory is that mice won’t walk on aluminum foil (don’t like the feel on their claws) and therefore can’t get to the tires to climb on the equipment. Ron I enjoy your questions and tips, keep them coming. Missed a column? Can’t remember a solution? Need a speaker for an upcoming event? Check out my brand new website: reena.ca!

Hydro rates going up 28% over five years

By Tom Fletcher, Black Press VICTORIA – The first of a series of BC Hydro rate increases takes effect in April 2014, adding $8 a month to the average residential power bill. Rate increases of nine per cent next year and six per cent in 2015 are the highest of a series of increases over five years announced Monday by Energy Minister Bill Bennett. The B.C. Utilities Commission will be directed to set rate increases that total up to 28 per cent over the next five years, then determine what rates are needed for the following five years, Bennett said. Commercial rates are going up the same amount. Bennett acknowledged that rate increases are being kept low by using a “rate smoothing” account that defers more than $1

billion of the utility’s debt. That account won’t begin to be paid down until after 2020. BC Hydro CEO Charles Reid said the latest rate increases are driven mainly by a large increase in capital spending, including seismic refits of old dams at Campbell River and Ruskin, turbine expansions at two Kootenay power dams and other upgrades. BC Hydro’s “big build” era of 1973 to 1982 produced rate increases totalling 113 per cent. BC Hydro cited an annual survey by Hydro Quebec that shows BC Hydro customers currently pay the third lowest rates in North America. Montreal and Winnipeg customers pay less, and Seattle and Miami residents pay slightly more. NDP energy critic John Horgan said Bennett avoided the impact of private power purchases on

BC Hydro’s rate increases. “We’re going to have increased debt for the next five years,” Horgan said. “They’re going to continue to take a dividend from a company that can’t afford to pay one, and the consequences for people are going to be higher costs.” Bennett said the 10-year plan calls for the government to “wean itself off” dividends from the utility, but the five years of reductions don’t start until 2018. The government has instructed BC Hydro to shut down the gasfired Burrard Thermal generating station in Port Moody by 2016, saving an estimated $14 million a year. The forecast electricity surplus over the 10-year plan allows that, but the facility will continue to be staffed for its grid stability function, Reid said.
