Shopping for cameras

www.lakeshorenews.bc.ca

A question I get asked quite commonly is what features to look for when purchasing a camera. Usually at this time of year, the camera is going to be purchased as a gift, so here is my advice. The first thing to do is to find out what the person wants the camera for. Are they a budding photographer who is in need of their first DSLR? Or do they just want a small camera to slip into a pocket or purse? Sometimes they would like a little more advanced camera but don’t yet require a DSLR. (DSLR stands for Digital Single Lens Reflex, which is the more advanced type of camera and the style the pros use.) It is important to qualify so you can get the type of camera they require. For instance, if little Judy has been taking a photography course and wants a DSLR she probably already has a point and shoot and is ready to move up, and so in this case purchasing a different point & shoot for her won’t do her any favours. If so, I would recommend that you find out a brand preference from her, as with DSLRs the lenses are changeable but only fit the brand they are purchased for. Nikon lenses only fit Nikon and Canon only fits Canon cameras, etc. Such a person may have lenses already or may be familiar with a certain brand because they have used a friend’s. They also might be thinking of friends who have the same brand and therefore can lens share or purchase second-hand lenses from. Knowing the brand you need makes for a simple purchase decision–just choose the camera in the price range you can afford. Simple. Usually the only change as you go up in price with DSLRs is a greater range of features, such as more frames per second or better low light capability. Yes, picture quality does also get better to an extent but not worth breaking the bank over for a new photographer. Aside from the DSLR, really the only other category of camera is generally referred to as the ‘point and

shoots.’ These come in two styles. The first is the small pocket camera, meant to be slipped into a pocket or purse. This type is fading in popularity as more and more people own smart phones with built-in cameras. If purchasing a pocket camera for someone who doesn’t have a cell phone just follow my advice for purchasing the larger point & shoot cameras which are what most people ask me for advice about. What to look for in a camera? The number of

megapixels is not really as important as many people believe, although the more the better. For instance, a cell phone has a very small lens, usually only a couple of millimeters across. The pocket size point & shoot cameras also have tiny lenses; whereas a larger point and shoot camera may have a lens that is 50 mm in diameter. The sensors behind these lenses are very different in size. During a shutter click, the amount of information that gets through a l a rg e lens and falls on the larger sensor is

Friday, November 29, 2013 Lakeshore News A3

throughmylens by Howard Vangool vastly different in quantity to that which could squeeze through the tiny lens and fall upon the much smaller sensor of a smaller lens. So actually, an 8 megapixel camera with a 50 mm lens would end up with much better photos than a 16 megapixel camera with a 2 mm lens. Another factor to consider is optical zoom. Not to be confused with digital zoom, optical zoom is the true physical ability of the lens to zoom up on and magnify a distant object. This is handy when photographing sports or wildlife, or for many other uses, and I advise the purchaser to get as much optical zoom as they can for the price. Camera manufacturers will often post large zoom numbers on the camera, but when the small print is read only a small portion of that number is actually true optical

zoom; the rest is digital zoom. This is really just the camera’s inner computer ‘manufacturing’ detail by spreading the pixels apart and then filling the empty spaces using an algorithm to deduce what the missing pixels should look like. This sounds like a good idea, but when you try photographing that bear you see in the field on your way to the dump and then print the photo, you will see just how much information is actually missing. Usually the bear just ends up being an indistinguishable black blob in a sea of green and so unless you want to walk right up to the bear and ask it to pose for you I recommend you should probably try to get as much optical zoom as possible. To summarize, when purchasing a point and shoot camera get one with the largest lens diameter, the most optical zoom, and the highest megapixel count in your price range and you will probably be quite satisfied.

Chiropractic and fertility

One of the most rewarding successes in my career as a chiropractor is when I am able to help couples conceive. Just a few months ago we shared in the celebration of a pregnancy announcement. This couple had been trying to get pregnant, for years. After numerous failed, expensive fertility treatments, they finally conceived their first baby following only a month of chiropractic adjustments. Chiropractic can affect fertility... how can that be? Let me explain. Chiropractic is not a specific treatment for fertility. However, the reason chiropractic care can have so much success, is that often the source of the problem stems from a woman’s overactive/overstressed central nervous system. Now, that may sound like way too easy of an answer, considering how “high tech” medical fertility care has become. But that is precisely why the medical route carries so much complexity and side effects with it... it is often too complex and more than what many women really need to be able to conceive. Stress is placed on the central nervous system from 3 main sources: physical, chemical, and mental/emotional. Looking back, I would have to say the majority of my patients having fertility challenges were facing excessive emotional stress combined with a lesser degree of chemical and physical stress. Stress negatively affects fertility by driving the central nervous system (CNS) into a chronic and sustained state of sympathetic fight/flight overdrive. Many women with fertility issues also share characteristics of headaches, neck and shoulder tension, fatigue/exhaustion, anxiety, GI issues, irregular menstrual cycles, and more – these are all classic examples of an overstressed and overstimulated fight/flight system. Most of the medical care surrounding fertility consists of measuring hormone levels, and then trying to manipulate these levels through medications and hormone replacement. While this can and does assist women to conceive, the problem is this is a classic case of what I call “shooting

the messenger” and does not address the real cause of the issue. Hormones are simply “chemical messengers” for the nervous system, and do not actually carry out any specific actions on their own; meaning that they only do what the CNS “directs” them to do. If a woman is in a chronic state of stress, her levels of stress hormones (mainly cortisol, epinephrine, etc.) will be excessively high due to over-stimulation. Organs such as the hypothalamus, pituitary, thyroid, and adrenals are where hormones are produced; if these organs are in a continual state of fight or flight (due to stress) they are not going to be in “optimum health” and will not be regulated correctly. Healthy hormone levels are the key players in ovulation and regular menstrual cycles. Therefore, if you run a blood test on a woman with a nervous system stuck in fight/flight, you are certainly going to see issues with her hormone levels. However, these abnormal levels will not usually provide much insight into the larger problem, which is: “why are they high?” To determine that answer, you need to dig deeper, and that is exactly what chiropractic does. Chiropractic directly influences the nervous system by finding and removing spinal subluxation. Spinal subluxations have been shown to increase the activity of the sympathetic nervous system, the portion of the nervous system that puts the body into the “fight/flight” mechanism discussed above. By removing subluxation, a chiropractor helps put a woman’s body back into a healthy state of neurological balance. When the nervous system is calmed, the hormonal system begins to regulate itself. Not only are chiropractors very well trained at finding and removing subluxation, we are also very wellversed in teaching women how to change their lifestyle in order to reduce stress. We do this through our principles of eating, moving, and thinking well. We begin by working with individual women to find where their stressors are, and then help to develop an action plan designed to

Preventing cataracts

A cataract is a cloudiness or opaque build up of damaged protein on the lens of the eye, which is a common cause of visual decline in seniors over 65 years old. Aging, oxidative stress to the lens, exposure to sun, lack of proper eye nutrition and diabetes are some of the causes that trigger this condition. Cataracts can be removed surgically and a new lens inserted in the eye. While this condition cannot be reversed, a change of diet and life style can go a long way in the prevention of cataracts and the protection of overall eye health. One simple preventative measure is to remember to wear sunglasses and a hat to protect the eyes from sun damage. Losing weight is also important, as people who are obese are more likely to get cataracts. It was observed in some population studies that the incidence of cataracts increased as the body mass increased. Eating fruits and vegetables high in vitamin E, Beta-carotene, B2, B3, zinc and selenium are good for the overall health of eyes and are associated with reduced incidence of cataracts. Vitamin C also plays an important role in eye health. In one study it was observed that people who took regular supplements of vitamin C for a period of 10 years were observed to have 45% lower risk of getting cataracts. People eating green leafy vegetables such as spinach and kale, which are rich in the antioxidants lutein and zeaxanthin, have a reduced risk of getting cataracts. Another food rich in lutein is egg yolks. Lycopene, found in tomatoes, is also associated with reduced risk of cataracts in both sexes. Dr Reddy, a very well-known ophthalmologist in India, and his team at the National Institute of Nutrition in Hyderabad, have studied the benefits of turmeric, a common spice, and the fruit amla (Indian gooseberry) for the prevention of cataracts. They found that moderate amounts of regular consumption of turmeric and amla reduced the risk of cataracts. Both ingredients were also helpful in slowing the growth of diabetic cataracts. Your eyes are the gateway to the soul, so take good care of them.

Donations have been steady at Santa’s Workshop in Enderby, keeping volunteers busy as they prepare for the December shopping events. After 4 p.m. on Nov. 30, the shop will be closed up by the volunteers who will prepare for the Kids Only Shopping Spree taking place Dec. 6 from 1-5 p.m. and Dec. 7 from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. This event allows kids up to age 12 a chance to do some Christmas shopping for the people on their lists with some help from the workshop’s elves, who accompany shoppers to help find appropriate choices and keep the selections within each child’s budget. “Adults stay outside while the kids make their selections from our huge array of affordably priced items,” explained Tracy Ell, who coordinates the annual event with her sister,

Jackie Pearase. “We wrap all their gifts so they get to surprise everyone on Christmas morning – if they can keep the secret that long. Some of them don’t make it out of the parking lot before spilling the beans.” Santa’s Workshop began in 1996 as a way to provide seniors with a way to be involved in the community by mending toys that would then be given to children in need for Christmas. It evolved within a year to include toys for Christmas hampers

provided to families by the local food bank, and a kids’ shopping event was added the following year. Shopping events for seniors and teens and adults also joined the lineup, and while the Enderby food bank has been the main beneficiary over the years, other groups and non-profits have received part of the workshop’s proceeds for over a decade. Since 2001, the workshop has provided funds to the Enderby & District Resource Centre, Enderby & District Memorial Hospital, Enderby Drill Hall, Enderby Library, Enderby & District Museum, Rocky Mountain Rangers Cadet Corps, A.L. Fortune Secondary School dry grad, Masons driving program, and food programs at M.V. Beattie, Ashton Creek and Grindrod elementary schools and A.L. Fortune. “A lot of credit must go to Angela Killen, who coordinated the workshop for a decade, for providing an excellent model to help community groups while giving kids a unique shopping experience,” noted Pearase. “It is a lot of work to do this for six weeks or so but the payoff is so great when you see these kids walk out the door with a sense of accomplishment – and a little secret.” The shopping event is for all kids, regardless of circumstances. “The prices are low so everybody can find something to fit their budgets but the aim is to give all kids a chance to do their own shopping,” noted Pearase. “We just want to put smiles on faces.” There is also a Seniors Shopping Spree Dec. 11 from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. and a Teen and Adult Shopping Spree Dec. 14 from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Elves from the workshop will also continue their tradition of joining Enderby’s Christmas parade to hand out some of the many stuffies donated each year to kids along the parade route. Anyone wanting to help with this Enderby tradition – as a shopping elf or wrapper at the shopping sprees – is asked to contact Jackie at 250-8380466 or Tracy at 250-838-0994.

WALMART WAS PROMOTING SALMON ARM

Four tenants are located in the Salmon Arm Walmart store which opened on Nov. 8, 2013. They didn’t come on their own – they were sold by Walmart because of the wonderful community and the great potential for business. Shuswap Providence Medical Centre was set up by an Ontario company: www.jacknathanhealth.com. It has medical and dental clinics in over 45 Walmarts in Canada. The company advertised for doctors for the Salmon Arm clinic and two moved from another clinic: Dr. Angela Plessis and Dr. Amy Megyesi. Their hours are 10-4 Mon. and Fri.; and 10-8 Tues., Wed., and Thurs. They welcome walk-ins or by appointment, 250-832-3377. You don’t have to wait. Take a complimentary pager and go and shop. The staff will call you when it is your turn. On Saturdays from 10-2, the seven doctors from Mt. Ida Clinic are rotating through this clinic

to see walk-ins. SmartStyle Family Hair Salon offers a full range of services. The salons are located exclusively in Walmart stores in Canada. Hours in Salmon Arm are 9 to 6 Monday to Saturday and 10 to 5 on Sunday. Walk-ins are welcome, and so are appointments: 250-804-8277. Manager Brianna Asham moved from Calgary to Salmon Arm with her family six years ago. She worked in a Salmon Arm salon for a year, then a year ago she moved to SmartStyle in the West Kelowna Walmart. With the company’s educational opportunities, she was ready to be manager of the Salmon Arm salon. Good to Go Lotto Centre is open in many Canadian Walmarts. Art and Karen Collins of Salmon Arm are the operators in the new Walmart store. The lotto centre is open 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. seven days a week. You can buy on-line tickets and scratch tickets. Sussex Insurance is in over 40 Walmart or Canadian Super Stores in B.C. In Salmon Arm it is open in the newly-opened Walmart seven days a week, 9 to 9, and offers Autoplan, travel, home, condo, tenants, private auto insurance, etc. Manager Gail Howard has 28 years of insurance experience. She and her family moved to Salmon Arm 12 years ago and she is excited to work in her hometown after commuting to Armstrong for 11 years.

THREE BRASS COMING TO TRAIN VOLUNTEERS

Hillside Village in Salmon Arm, which provides complex care to clients for Interior Health, depends on volunteers to provide spiritual and specialized care for its 112 residents, many of whom suffer from dementia. A free, 10-hour training course for volunteers will be given at Hillside on Fri., Jan. 10 and Sat., Jan. 11. Coming to assist Laurie Ljubojevic, the chaplain at Hillside Village in giving the course will be two regional supervisors of chaplains from Kelowna and the director of mission from the corporate office in Edmonton. To register for the course, contact Laurie at 250-253-9001 or lljubojevic@gss.org. The first three letters in her email address are el el jay. Hillside Village is operated by the Good Samaritan Society that is part of the Lutheran Church of Canada. The head office is in Edmonton. The society has over 54 facilities and programs that serve more than 5,500 individuals across Alberta and British Columbia. For Interior Health, besides Salmon Arm the society operates facilities in Vernon, Kelowna and Penticton.

LIGHT A CANDLE TO REMEMBER A LOVED ONE

Every December, Shuswap Hospice invites you to its Celebration of Life event at Piccadilly. You can light a small light on the Celebrate a Life Tree, write the name of your loved one in the remembrance book, and take home an angel from the tree. There is no charge. It is a ritual to give symbolic expression to the feelings and thoughts of bereaved

persons commemorating loved ones who have died. This year’s event is Dec. 2-20, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Everyone is welcome to stop by. Participating in Celebrate a Life may help you feel less alone at this time of year.

TWO GRACES DIED: RN MERTZ & FORMER NUN DUNFORD

I was saddened that two of my friends named Grace died within a week of one another. Grace Mertz and I were nurses in the Enderby hospital, and Grace Dunford was born in Humboldt, close to my hometown of Watson, Sask. She was the first of 80 nuns to leave the convent at Bruno, Sask. and she co-authored a book with Gerty Shipmaker titled Shattered Dreams of a Runaway Nun. I met her at the book’s launch in Enderby in May 2012. She wrote that she became disillusioned after 11 years as a nun, and sneaked out one night in 1964 with the help of the mother of one of her piano students. The next year, another 25 nuns left the convent. In Salmon Arm, her book is available at Hidden Gems Bookstore across Alexander St. from the Royal Bank.

U.S. PRESIDENT JFK WAS SHOT 50 YEARS AGO

Where were you when John F. Kennedy was killed? We were living in Burns Lake where Jim was manager of the Bank of Commerce. The bank house was a former doctor’s office and residence. When I heard the announcement on the radio, I was standing in the dining room, looking out the window towards the liquor store, pregnant with son-number-two. I phoned Jim and told him JFK was shot and killed. He said “No way!”

UNLIMITED WIRELESS CONNECTION AT LIBRARY

When you bring your own computer to Okanagan Library in Piccadilly, you can log on to WiFi and spend all day there without having a library card. If you do not use it for half an hour you will need to log on again. It is not secure, but then neither is WiFi secure at McDonald’s or Tim Hortons. This is how you log on at the library: drag down to ORL, then try to open any web page. It will ask you to log on, and you follow the prompts. The library staff is helpful with getting you online and showing you where the electrical outlets are located.

ENGINEERED GRAINS CAUSE CELIAC DISEASE

“Although humans have eaten gluten-containing grains for centuries, celiac disease incidence has quadrupled in the past 40 years. The change seems to have occurred because most wheat today has been bred and engineered for greater yields and more gluten, which gives dough elasticity.” Written by dietician Vesanto Melina in Common Ground magazine, Nov. 2013, pg 9.

Teen terms

It is time for another update to the “Mall Arkey Dictionary.” This time around we are going to focus on “teen terms”. Like most of terms in the Mall Arkey Dictionary, these are words that kids create out-of-theblue, or existing words that they give a completely new meaning. Back in the 80s we created terms such as “gnarly,” “radical,” and “tubular” and phrases such as “like totally!” and “no duh!” I tried using these terms on my teenage son, but all I got was a look of “What planet are you from, Dad?” So to help bridge the generational gap I decided to investigate what random/strange terms and misuses of the English language kids are using these days. Troll – no, not the large burly mythical creature. Instead, it is the action of doing something that makes someone uncomfortable. An example is pushing your face against the window of a vehicle and staring at the car in the lane next to you. I had a young man do this to me a couple months ago. The funny part is I recognized him and was reviewing his performance as part of a hockey evaluation later that night. The timing was impeccable. Chapped – as you can imagine this has nothing to do with dry lips. It has more to do with being upset, disturbed and/or shaken up. An example

of this term is “After Nathan got tripped in the hockey game, he was so chapped!” Other terms that are being interchanged with chapped these days are “rattled,” “wrecked” and “chinced.” Ferda – a term that replaces “for the” as in “Let’s win this one ferda boyz!” I call it lazy English, but the kids these days turn it into a new word. Go figure. Versing – describes who you are competing against in a game as in “The Canucks are versing the Oilers tonight.” To be fair this term seems to be more popular with the pre-teens than teens. Either way I cringe whenever I hear the term being used. Beauty – I am told this is one of the most overused words and has already begun to fall out of favour with some teenage socialites. The term itself refers to someone, often a boy that stands up for a friend. Again, I am struggling to see the connection! I could go on and on, but to be safe I must stop here. Besides, by the time you read this article the above terms have probably changed their meaning three times or have been discarded all together. It’s no wonder parents and teenagers struggle to communicate. Sure, the hormones play a factor, but it would be nice if we had an interpreter too!

Remember a loved one

Celebrate a Life is a time to honour and give symbolic expression to your feelings and thoughts about your loved one who is no longer here. It takes place 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. from December 2 through December 20 at the Mall at Piccadilly. It is free and everyone is welcome to stop by. Participating in Celebrate a Life may help you feel less alone at this time of year. By illuminating a light on the Celebrate a Life Tree, you honour the life of your loved one as well as honouring yourself. You remember the love and the experiences you shared. The light that you have turned on will only burn for a short time; and is a symbol of the love you always carry in your heart. This is not a fundraising event. Rather, it is a ritual to give symbolic expression to the feelings and thoughts of bereaved persons commemorating loved ones who have died. Participants are invited to light a light on the Celebrate a Life Tree, to write the name of their loved one in the remembrance book and to take home an angel from the tree.

Sunnybrae Vineyards & Winery

The large framed photograph in the tasting room of Sunnybrae Vineyards & Winery–a picture of a muscular farmer with his team of Belgian draft horses–immediately conveys a sense of heritage. It is a picture of the late Mac Turner, the father of Barry Turner who, with his wife, Nancy, and their family, has launched the newest of the six wineries in the Shuswap. A stylized image of Mac Turner and his team appears on the labels of all Sunnybrae wines. Barry, Nancy, daughters, husbands, grandkids and neighbour Chris Clarke began planting in 2006, and now they have a 7.5 acre vineyard. The winery’s first vintage, 2010, was started with consultant Hans Nevrkla, the former owner of Larch Hills Winery (the Shuswap’s original winery) and completed by Lloyd’s recommendation – consultant Mark Wendenburg, the former long-time Sumac Ridge winemaker. Also involved was Jesse Steinley, winemaker at the nearby Recline Ridge Winery. “Sunnybrae” is aptly named and boasts its own unique micro-climate, perfect for growing grapes. The meticulously-groomed vineyard is nestled below Bastion Mountain next to the magnificent Shuswap Lake shoreline. The south-sloping volcanic ash land basks in sunshine during daylight hours and enjoys cooling breezes in the evenings. The staff at Sunnybrae Vineyard and Winery look forward to helping you with wine choices and food pairing

information. Come to the sunny side and enjoy a casual fun-filled experience. This year they have six different wines: 2011 Turner Road (named after Barry’s parents Mac & Babe Turner, both long-time residents of the Sunnybrae Area): This versatile estate blend displays a medley of fresh fruit, citrus, and hints of apple. 2011 Ortega: Exhibits superb varietal character with a long clean finish. Try it with fresh-caught fish from the Shuswap, or spicy Asian and Indian cuisine. 2011 Siegerrebe: A passionate dance to a composition of citrus, lychee and apricot notes. Sip this wine while serenading the one you love. 2010 Rose: Smooth, crisp and fresh with aromas of Nancy’s Strawberry rhubarb crumble. Enjoy at the beach with friends.... only if you feel like sharing. 2011 Bastian Mountain Red: Deep crimson in colour at the core, turning scarlet at the rim with plenty of violet tears. Share with friends and family, and be sure to make lasting memories that bring only tears of joy. 2010 Marechal Foch: Of intense colour and flavour, this wine contains dark berry, cherry and spice aromas, with a subtle oak finish. Come and see this stunning family vineyard and marvel at the varied flavours of products made from our grapes.

wine cheese food fun

Larch Hills Winery

Larch Hills Winery is a land-based, family-run vineyard and winery owned by Jack and Hazel Manser. All of their product is proudly made from 100 per cent British Columbia grapes, either from the main vineyard just south of Salmon Arm (also the location of the winery and family home), or from contracted vineyards farther south in the Okanagan Valley. All wines are made and bottled at the premises at Salmon Arm. Larch Hills Winery specializes in cool climate grape growing, and has varieties that are generally not available in other parts of BC. In 1987, the land was total bush. Nobody had grown European varietal wine grapes this far north before. In 1992, after experimenting to find the right types of grape for the local climate, planting began in earnest. The winery opened in April 1997 with a small release of what has become a signature

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

Ovino Winery

Ovino Winery’s featured wines provide the unique “terroir” and local flavours of their estate-grown grapes, bringing out the best of what the Salmon Valley has to offer. Ovino Pinot Tramino 2012 (white): This popular blend of pinot gris and gewurztraminer, is in addition to being the ultimate patio sipper also very food friendly and 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. This wine received a high scoring silver medal at “The Nationals” and was voted “best value wine” by the judges of Wine Align. Ovino Black Riesling 2012 (red): A cousin of pinot noir, this wine

wine for them – Ortega (vintage 1995). Since then, many other varieties have been added to the list of releases. Visitors are welcome each day from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. for tasting and taking in the superb view of the valleys below. You are also welcome to selftour around the vineyard. In winter, call ahead to check road conditions. Jack and Hazel are hosting a Christmas Open House this year on Saturday  and Sunday, December 7th and 8th, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days. Shop for your beverages for the holiday season and browse all the great giftware. Hot wine and delicious goodies will be served, as well as normal wine tasting samples. Say Cheese will also be there both days sampling their wares.

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.

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. It received a high-scoring silver medal at “The Nationals” put on by Wine Align. In addition to these wines, 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.

Czechoslovakian Christmas memories

www.lakeshorenews.bc.ca

By Jarka Pajk As I am about celebrate my 26th Christmas in Canada, I would like to share some of the customs and traditions practiced in former Czechoslovakia during the Christmas season. There, the Christmas spirit was not commercialized at all. In fact, under the Communist government we didn’t have much advertising of anything. The decorations in our homes during this holiday were kept very simple. Evergreen tree branches were put around the doors and windows and a spruce or pine tree would be decorated with traditional homemade decorations like paper chains, stars made from straw, sweets and real candles. Now that was a little risky, as I do remember the tree catching fire often. Our major celebration day was December 24. We celebrated the Birth of Jesus (without a Santa Claus) giving very practical gifts like clothing and books etc, all carefully chosen for a particular person so no money would be wasted on unwanted gifts. We were very happy and everyone felt the magic of giving and receiving. Christmas carols filled our place during the Christmas Eve dinner as my family sat down to

enjoy the evening meal, dressed in their best clothes. It started with a toast of red wine for the adults and mineral water with raspberry syrup for the children. The first course was fish soup followed by potato salad and deep-fried breaded fish (carp).

The meal was topped off with a large assortment of Christmas pastries made from family recipes passed down for many generations. After dinner, the gifts were opened and then some of us went to church for midnight mass even though this tradition was discouraged by the Communist government. On Christmas day my mother

would cook a small turkey while we watched our favourite fairy tales on TV, or read and snacked on mandarin oranges and bananas that were only available at that time of year. For me, getting the carp was a big event. These fish were farmed in ponds just for the Christmas celebration. The carp was purchased live, brought home in a bucket, and kept alive in the bathtub until time for cooking. When I was young, I looked forward to spending time with the doomed carp; it was like getting a pet for a few days as I would talk to it and play with it. When it was family bath time, we would use a towel to catch the fish and put it in a basin. Then we would wash and disinfect the tub before using it. When we were all done we filled the tub with fresh tap water and put the carp back in. Another interesting thing I remember was the general silence. During the holidays, all businesses were closed and public transportation was sparse. Christmas was the biggest celebration of the year and anytime I hear a familiar Christmas carol it brings back memories of that simplicity and magic.

Horsey Ladies give back to community

By Nancy Roman The 16th Annual Okanagan Horsey Ladies’ Charity Auction took place on November 15th at the Spallumcheen Golf Course, north of Vernon. One hundred and thirty gals from all over the interior came out to socialize, shop and give back to charity. Committee members this year included Ruby Edwards, Elspeth Manning, Michele Gould, Amy Vaughan, Sheila Sperling, Patti Thomas, Ursula McHugh, and Nancy Roman. Twelve charities were nominated and/or pitched that evening and the top two vote getters were the BC Interior Horse Rescue Society and Vernon Women’s Transition House (Equine Assisted Therapy Program). We are pleased to announce that, thanks to the generosity of our sponsors and the ladies’ bidding, we raised $7,400, exceeding last year’s $6,400. The amount was divided equally and $3,700 was given to each winning charity. This brings our total fundraising amount to over $57,000 raised.

The Horsey Ladies is neither a club nor a society–we have no president or bank account. We are just a bunch of gals that get together, meet at Christmas, and seek out donations throughout the year. We appreciate and thank all of the local and out-of-town sponsors. From left, Wendy Elrick of Vernon Women’s Transition House, and Susy Bairstow of BC Interior Horse Rescue Society, receive their $3,700 cash envelopes from Sheila Sperling and Ruby Edwards of the Horsey Ladies.

How can we adapt a story that is set on a downtown street, while capturing the feeling of the cold crisp air? Our adaptation is set outside, on the main street of Enderby. How can we make sure the audience doesn’t get too cold? Invite them in to the shops! Runaway Moon’s Christmas play goes in and out of the Market place IGA, as well as other scenes taking place in Enderby Jeweller’s (featuring jeweler Judy Dangel herself) and Mel’s Pizza!

NOTICE of PLEBISCITE On A Plan to Establish an Apple Industry Development Council for British Columbia Apple Producers A plan is proposed to establish an industry council under the BC Farming and Fishing Industries Development Act. The proposed name of the council is the Apple Research and Promotion Agency (ARPA). ARPA will have the authority to collect levies and fulfill the objectives that are outlined in the published plan. The Council will secure a larger funding base, from government matching funds and potentially from a levy on imported apples (a proposal is currently being developed by a national committee of apple producers). ARPA will promote apple consumption, as well as horticultural and packing research. The Council will represent all apple producers regardless of how their apples are packed or sold. Growers with over 2 acres of apples are eligible to vote. A registry will be maintained by an independent registrar / returning officer. All contact information for growers will be held confidentially by the registrar / returning officer. Registered growers who do not vote at initial public sessions on November 27 and 28, 2013 will receive a voting package in the mail. For growers who are qualified to vote, but who do not receive a voting package in the mail by December 15, 2013, there are two ways to vote: 1. Vote by mail. To receive a voting package by mail, contact the independent registrar / returning officer at Registrar PO Box 29044 Kelowna, BC V1W 4A7

Letters to the Editor Proposed OCP amendment unreasonable

Re: Proposed Shuswap Official Community Plan Amendment (Dan Baskill) by-law No. 700-65: South Shuswap Zoning Amendment (Dan Baskill) by-law No. 701-65; and Lakes Zoning Amendment (Dan Baskill) Bylaw no. 900-2 Dear Mr. Demenok, I am sure you are being bombarded with similar letters, but I must also say my piece. It appears to me that Mr. Baskill is asking for the moon here, in hopes of acquiring a satellite or two. What he is requesting is permission to build a small city, with stores, post office, campground, police station etc. This is totally unreasonable, adding insult to injury for the general public, and the Blind Bay residents in particular. We already have most of these services nearby. Allowing any part of this unreasonable development sets a dangerous precedent, if nothing else. If Mr. Baskill can claim part of Shuswap Lake, and bend it to his financial gain, where does that leave the rest of CSRD’s ability to control future developments of a similar nature? This lake was pristine, but I can see a marked decline in the quality of water we take from this drinking water reservoir. What would hap-

When contacting the returning officer, provide your name, address, and statement that you grow over 2 acres of apples. Ballots must be mailed no later than February 15, 2014. 2. Vote in person. There will be a final opportunity to vote in person 10 am – noon, at a voting table set up on February 15, 2014, at the BCFGA Annual Convention, held at the Delta Grand Hotel, Kelowna. Further information on the proposal and voting procedure is available on-line at www.bcapplecouncil.org, or by calling the sponsor of the plan, the BC Fruit Growers’ Association at 250-762-5226, ext. 23.

pen to Mr. Baskill’s proposition if he were to put such an idea forth to any other drinking water reservoir? Try Vancouver’s water supply, or Victoria’s sacred holding. That would be criminal, to say the least! I was not involved in the OCP creation, but I did follow it closely and mostly agreed with the final result. This flies in the face of all those people that volunteered hours and many kilometres to manifest this important document. Getting back to the satellites, Mr. Baskill is asking us to believe that his treated effluent will not run downhill, just as Salmon Arm’s sewage does not affect the water quality in Tappen Bay. Ultimately, it all runs downhill, and in this case it will carry the thousands of chemicals and pharmaceuticals that no treatment plant has yet eliminated. Ten years ago, I drank from Tappen Bay while on the sailboat. It wasn’t bad. Last summer, I sampled a mouthful from the same area, and it was terrible. This developmental frenzy has to stop. Our very lives depend on it. Please use whatever power invested in you to stop it. Thanking you, I remain, Carol Ferguson, Tappen

City should install sidewalk

Many of us residents who live south of Piccadilly Mall in and near the Ridge subdivision, feel we are being shortchanged. The developer of the Ridge was required to install sidewalks that lead nowhere because the city won’t put a sidewalk along 10th Street to the mall. The street is narrow and unsafe to walk along. Now our bus service is being cancelled, so residents who don’t drive will have no safe way to get to the mall. Are our high property taxes just being used to subsidize others?

Don’t eat stupid food

“Don’t eat stupid food!” This was the number one advice from commander Chris Hadfield to a nineyear-old caller who wants to be an astronaut. His second advice was to take courses in sciences and engineering and to be a leader so that you get lots of practice making good decisions. The cornerstone of living well are pretty much summarized in these three quotes. How do you avoid “stupid food” when with a little help from corporate advertising and row upon row of denatured, sugar-coated, salt-laden, boxed, canned, fumigated, chemically and genetically altered “food” are facing us in the center isle of every supermarket? This is where tips number two and three come in. Get yourself educated, and make smart decisions. Finding the right food for your unique physical needs is not nearly as hard as rocket science. A wise doctor told me years ago that eating habits are established between age 8 to 13. (I think that it starts the minute the first finger foods appear in front of a toddler in his/her highchair.) The average little one is a happy piggy at the trough that slops up almost anything that is put in front of them. Some of it even finds their mouth! Making good food decisions is made simpler when stupid food is hard to find. Stupid food is easily detected by its long list of unpronounceable addons. I am guessing that it won’t be the last time that I get caught in a stupid food choice by glossy packaging, health claims and colourful images. Yep, I ate half the bag of deep-fried organic, all-natural, additive-free beets, sweet potatoes and parsnips on the way home. Food science tells us that all deep-fried food is a stupid food choice. No exceptions. My bottom line is to let quality food reign supreme most all the time. Stupid food consumed on occasion in the company of great friends and served with a side of laughter will go down the hatch without a hitch. No guilt. Just a note to self to look twice when ‘organic all natural’ headlines catch one’s fancy! The title of this “smooth move” recipe (below) caught my eye in David Wolfe’s book, “Naked Chocolate.” Grind raw cacao nibs in your coffee mill, and keep a jar of this powder in your fridge on hand at all times!

By Cheryl Niemi National Day of the Child was on November 20th, and to celebrate this day the Salmon Arm Early Childhood Development committee promoted a Magical Tree Activity for the daycares in Salmon Arm. This activity allowed our children ages 0-6 to think about their basic needs and wants in life. Nineteen daycares participated in this activity and have been working on the posters for a few weeks. Each daycare had the creative freedom to choose how they would incorporate this lesson into their busy schedules. The children and caregivers did a wonderful job – 21 magical trees were created and returned. The outcome of this project is just awesome; the magical tree posters speak for themselves. They are being displayed at the Mall at Piccadilly until December 3rd on the walls beside

What everyone’s reading...

Sears and Shoppers Drug Mart. I hope the community at large takes a moment to go have a look at these beautiful posters, with very heartwarming and interesting pictures and words from our young children. It is a very important lesson for all community members young and old to be aware that children have rights. We have had overwhelming support from all within the Shuswap Children’s Association, as well as members of our community that donated to our cause. Because of the generous donations we were able to thank the daycares for participating by giving them a beautiful bag of goodies for their centres and some great information for their parents. Thank you to our sponsors: The Puzzle Factory, Lake Effect, Salmon Arm Library, Interior Health and Piccadilly Mall for displaying the posters.

SilverTips come up short vs Warriors

Salmon Arm

SilverBacks Junior ‘A’ Hockey Club

By Peter Kociuba The A&W Peewee Tier 3 Silvertips headed down the road to Sicamous for a game against the Westside Warriors on Sunday, falling to the visitors by a final score of 6-2. Mason Balon opened the scoring for Salmon Arm, chipping the puck up over the Westside goaltender midway through the first period. The Warriors would tie it up a few minutes later and the game would head into the ice clean at the halfway point knotted at one. The visitors would take the lead early in the third, but Matt Campbell of the SilverTips made an end-to-end rush just 14 seconds later, snapping the puck past the Warrior’s netminder after a power move to the front of the net. Penalty problems cost the Tips later in the frame and Westside took advantage, scoring 4 unanswered goals to finish out the game. The Tips head to Armstrong for an exhibition game against the North Oak Knights this Saturday.

By Debbie Archambault Ringette is continuing to pick up speed this season and has generated more inquiries from the public about what is ringette and where can children try it? We are sure part of this interest is due to the majority of our association running around in “Property of Shuswap Ringette” hoodies this past week! So, in an answer to this public interest, our Director of Promotions, Holly Brown, has scheduled another Come Try Ringette event. This event is free and open to all kids aged 4-9. It will be held on the ice on December 3rd from 4:30-5:30 p.m. Kids need to bring helmets and skates, and come ready to have some fun. If you would like additional information on this event or have any questions, please contact Holly at 250-832-2014 or email browndou@live.ca. Don’t forget to check out our website at www. shuswapringette.ca where you can find lots of information on what’s going on or coming up, as well as links to our game schedules if you would like to come out and watch.

Walk in the winter woods shuswapoutdoors

For those that enjoy nature, a walk in the early winter woods, is always a pleasant experience. It’s also invigorating. Too, just because the woods are quieter than usual, it doesn’t mean there isn’t much activity. Squirrels have their stash of cones. Ravens swoop down to find easy meals with their mimicking calls, and ‘whiskey jacks’ (grey jays), known by hunters as camp robbers, follow humans, hopping from branch to branch in hopes of a handout. But the raven is a clever rascal. A number of years ago, a group of us were juvenile tree spacing up Fly Hills for an Enderby company, when a forest officer asked for a faller to drop burnt snags onto a huge burn on Crowfoot mountain. Soon, the busy buzz of chainsaws and crashing of big balsam/spruce snags filled the air. Ravens always appeared at lunchtime, so we thought we’d have some fun by placing a sandwich inside a plastic bag, along with a handful of small rocks, all in a brown bag. This was placed at a nearby landing. Wasn’t long before the birds figured things out. They dragged the bag around, then pecked the rocks into a pile. They pulled the sandwich out, and flew off. The jays have great memories – even after months, they know where a food or seed stash is kept. Most of our songbirds

have flown south for the winter, and our chickadees, nuthatches, woodpeckers, and flickers remain. As with other species, research has shown that the brain of songbirds have a highly evolved network of interconnected regions that control their ability to hear, sing, and perceive the meaning of a multitude of sounds they hear each day. Too, like dogs for example, not all songbirds are equal in their learning ability. Blackcapped chickadees found in some Alberta river valleys have an especially sophisticated system of communicating, mostly to do with their social structure. For the most part, birds sing to woo mates, stake a territory, and defend their space. Yes, these days our woods seem void of these wonderful creatures, but there’s still lots to learn from a walk in the winter woods.

Other notes for outdoor lovers: Fewer bears have been shot by conservation officers this year–just 325, as opposed to 460 in 2012. Contributing to the decline was a wet spring with lots of grass types available – a portion of the bear’s diet. A good wild berry crop also helped. Calls to the CO hotline, went 13,023 from 14,549 in 2012 for both grizzly and black bears. WildSafe BC has 20 coordinators in 100 communities, educating folks about proper garbage disposal and other attractants. Before the program began in 1999, officers usually shot about 1000 bears a year. BC Parks: Visits to BC’s parks really increased for 2012. Figures show there were 18.2 million for day use, and 2.4 million for overnight camping. Visitor comments confirmed 79% satisfaction. $17.6 million was generated.

Funeral Homes

The staff at Bowers Funeral Home warmly invite you to our 12th annual

Holiday Remembrance Service from our chapel Thursday, December 12th at 7:00 pm.

Born on May 21, 1924 in Allborg Denmark and passed away surrounded by loving family members at Shuswap Lake General Hospital on November 24, 2013.

This service will include candle lighting, music and poetry to commemorate loved ones who have passed away. All are welcome to attend.

He is survived by his six children, Erik (Donna), Arne (Kelly), Wivi (Jean Mark), Julie (Derrick), Dana (Brian) and Lise (Russ), six grandchildren and six great-grandchildren. He arrived by ship in Canada in 1948 and landed in Ottawa. He then travelled by train to Vancouver and then by bus to Prince George, where he started a career in logging, heavy equipment operation and cattle farming. He worked on the Alaskan highway before settling in Salmon Arm and worked at NOCA dairy as a cheese maker. Erik taught himself English while living in Northern BC. He was a hard working man raising six children on a 1/2 acre lot that had cows, pigs, and a garden. He chopped wood, hayed and had a small cherry orchid of 50 trees. After farming, he moved onto Lakeshore Road and continued with his large garden. Erik was a strong silent man who had a sense of humour and a sharp wit that brought a smile to all that came into contact with him. His family in Denmark said he wrote some of the most beautiful and heart felt letters. He had a glint in his eye that always drew people towards him. He was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and served in different capacities; one being a home teacher, another a scout camp cook and was always helping out, this he did for many years.
