All-candidates forum a success

Friday, May 3, 2013 Lakeshore News A3

A diverse, multi-aged crowd of nearly 80 people attended the April 29th All-Candidates Forum on the Environment. Three of the four candidates participated, with BC Liberal candidate Greg Kyllo choosing not to attend the forum as he’d already committed to six other all-candidates meetings. Jim Cooperman, S h u s w a p Environmental Action Society president, responded to this in his introduction by pointing out that the environment is not just a “special interest,” but rather, something that is in everyone’s interest because everything, including the economy, is dependent upon a healthy environment. The forum began with a brief talk by each

candidate about how they became involved in politics and where they stand on environmental issues. NDP candidate Steve Gunner explained how using toxic chemicals in his early years as a young farmer impacted his health, which led him to become an organic farmer and a politician that cares about the planet. Green Party candidate Chris George decided to become a politician to make the world a better place for his children and he chose the party that he believes has the best policies. Conservative candidate Tom Birch’s involvement in politics grew out of concern about the lack of understanding surrounding sustainable forestry management and his interest in bringing

groups together to seek solutions. The three candidates fielded a total of 14 questions on a wide variety of topics, including how best to build a green economy, the need to better protect our watershed, problems with the “professional reliance” model in environmental assessments, shale gas fracking, pipelines, carbon emission reduction targets, the wolf hunt, salmon farming, and smart meters. All three candidates displayed their passion for protecting the environment, but there were substantial differences among them on the extent of the changes required to reach that goal. There was no support for pipelines from either the Green or

NDP candidate. Conservative candidate Tom Birch explained how his party supports pipelines but indicated that if there was broad opposition among his constituents, he would respect that and vote accordingly. Regarding the growing negative impact of industrial agriculture on Shuswap and Mara Lake water quality, all of the candidates expressed a need for government to collaborate with farmers to find solutions. “I am pleased that all three candidates said they would support permanent funding for a Shuswap watershed-wide organization to protect our water quality as the Okanagan Water Board has done successfully for 45 years,” said Ray Nadeau, president of

the Shuswap Water Action Team. “We are eagerly awaiting to hear BC Liberal Greg Kyllo’s position on protecting our water quality,” he added. The forum was sponsored by four organizations, KAIROS-Salmon Arm, Shuswap Naturalists, Shuswap Water Action Team and S h u s w a p Environmental Action Society. The moderator was Jim Barmby, Regional Dean of Okanagan College. Acorn Music kindly provided the microphones for the event.

Final all-candidates forum in the North Shuswap

The final all-candidates forum in the Shuswap before the election will be held at 7:00 p.m. on May 6th at the North Shuswap Community Hall in Celista. Sponsored by the North Shuswap’s ratepayers’ organizations, this forum will provide an opportunity for the public to pose questions directly to the candidates. “When we heard that the local Chamber of Commerce decided to not hold a forum, we decided that the upcoming election was

too important to not have an opportunity for North Shuswap citizens to question our local candidates and thus we worked together to organize this important event,” explained Veronica Bene, Lee Creek Ratepayers president. “St. Ives Ratepayers feel it is important that we be given the opportunity to meet the election candidates in person. Also to get first hand experience as to how they view the issues that impact our lives and future lives of our

children and grandchildren. Change is all around us, how we manage it is our biggest concern,” said Dave King, St. Ives Ratepayers president. North Shuswap Area F Director, Larry Morgan, will be the moderator for this forum. Each ratepayer group will provide one question each for the candidates. Everyone is welcomed to attend this important event. For more information, contact Veronica Bene at 250-679-4678.

optimistic significantly affects the outcome of certain health conditions. People with this attitude have a greater pain threshold and even recover faster from surgeries or illness. A 23-year study in people over the age of 50, those who had an optimistic view on life and took a more proactive approach to living, showed that they lived 7.5 years longer than those who were pessimists. In another study it was found that the most optimistic of elderly men had a lower risk of cardiovascular death when compared with the least optimistic. This was published in February 27 issue of Archives of Internal Medicine, a journal of the American Medical Association. On the other hand, depression in patients with heart disease is known to

by Dr. Warren Gage Heart disease is preventable increase the risk of death. Optimism was also found to lower risk of death among patients with other health conditions like head and neck cancer. This attitude has been associated with immunity as well. Pessimistic women respond to stress with a declining immune system function, while optimistic women show no stress-induced change in their immune systems. A positive mind brings about happiness, joy, healing, prosperity, love and a successful outcome of every situation. The attitude that the glass is half full rather than empty makes life fuller and healthier. Readers with enquiries may contact Kosha Vaidya via email at koshahealing@gmail. com.

A recent article in the journal Nature brought to light that heart disease is the number one killer worldwide. Diseases of the heart and blood vessels aren’t just a North American problem. Heart disease is responsible for more than 4 million deaths per year in Europe and almost 1/3 of all deaths worldwide. Approximately 1.5 million Americans alone have heart attacks every year. Despite decades of public health campaigns across the globe, heart disease continues to be a huge problem. The three main risk factors for heart disease are high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and diabetes. As worldwide epidemics of obesity (and subsequent diabetes) continue to worsen, it is no surprise heart disease is the number one killer. Many lives are impacted by heart disease but it is not all doom and gloom. The empowering part of heart disease is that the vast majority of the risk factors are all manageable by better lifestyle choices. Heart disease, hypertension, high cholesterol, obesity, and diabetes are all lifestyle disorders. Not surprising, the most effective habits every person needs to partake in every day is simply exercising regularly, eating a healthy diet, and getting proper rest. Daily exercise for only 30 minutes and eating a healthy diet reduces heart disease by 50%! The majority of the solution is simple and involves basic improvements in lifestyle, but it does require commitment. Good health isn’t just “good luck.” Improved health takes work and requires conscious effort. It is up to every individual to decide whether s/he is worth it and if s/he wants to be healthy and happy into the golden years. Chiropractors are lifestyle specialists. If you are looking to start on the right path towards health and wellness, come in and have an assessment at Harbourfront Family Chiropractic at (250) 803-0224. We can help guide you back onto the path to wellness and optimal health.

Happy Days Dairies, at 691 Salmon River Road, had a display at Sunday afternoon’s event of 20 local farmers and businesspeople at Fieldstone Organics near Armstrong. Donat Koller was kept busy during the three hours, giving samples of food made with goats’ milk, and explaining that he supplies stores throughout western Canada. Locally the products are available at Save-On Foods, Safeway, Askew’s, Canadian Superstores, health food stores, etc. I remember when a young couple moved from Switzerland to the Shuswap in July, 1993, 20 years ago, with plans to start a goat dairy. When I interviewed Donat and Jasmine Koller I thought their dream was too large. Their story on said Donat graduated from Agricultural College and Cheesemaking College before immigrating to Canada. They leased a small vacant dairy farm near Salmon Arm and grew the goat business to where they bought their own land. Donat built a permanent processing plant and went into full production. He sold his goats to another goat farmer and now buys goats’ milk from all the goat farmers in the area. Happy Days Dairies sells natural goat milk, Okanagan goat cheese, feta goat cheese, cheese crumbles, goat yogurt and kefir. All are 100 per cent Canadian, pure, and natural goat dairy products. Congratulations, Donat and Jasmine!


Premier Christy Clark was in Sicamous last Wednesday morning, at Liberal candidate Greg Kyllo’s manufacturing plant: Twin Anchors Houseboat Vacations and TA Structures. I was more interested in seeing the reporters prepare for her arrival and press conference. The row of sturdy tripods, the huge TV cameras carried on shoulders, the lighting focused on the podium, the pacing around as everyone waited. Then the timing of the premier’s arrival, speech, and then the Q&A moderated by Ben Chin, the communication director in Christy Clarke’s office. He started by asking the local media first, and that was Heather Black from the Okanagan Advertiser of Enderby/Armstrong.


During the half-hour wait for the premier’s arrival, I visited with people. One was a grey-haired man with a notebook under his arm, obviously a writer so I asked for whom he worked. Globe & Mail was the answer. I asked him some questions, then he asked me some questions. Gary Mason writes about the BC election, and this is the first of two paragraphs that he quoted me in the April 26 issue: Sally Scales, a 75-year-old former newspaper owner from Salmon Arm, is in the crowd. She has dropped in to see the Premier in person. “There is just something about her that I really like,” says Ms. Scales. “She’s dynamic and she’s always positive. She has a real charisma about her.”

and said she must meet Tania. She was AMAZED at the display of 23 artists who are members of the gallery, and the great number of people who packed the place for the event. Because of their similarity, I asked if the two women were related. They said no, Tania is Ukrainian and Victoria is Irish. Tania’s website is Victoria’s is


Tom Barrett wrote about the use and abuse of modern opinion research in an article in “As campaign polls proliferate like dandelions in April, they also become the source of a vast amount of the hooey that gets spewed by pundits. “While pollsters generally get things right most of the time, their reputations aren’t helped by results like last year’s Alberta election, where Premier Alison Redford’s Progressive Conservatives were re-elected with a 10-point margin despite a slew of polls predicting a majority for the Wildrose party.” Sign up for the free Tyee e-newsletter.

Do you have the time and interest to attend a meeting on the third Wednesday of every month in Salmon Arm? TheNorth Okanagan/Shuswap Bain Injury Society provides support to survivors, families, friends and caregivers of people who have acquired a brain injury. Those with an injury are given skills to regain control of their lives. Board members deal with long-term visioning, have moral courage and can work as part of a team.

I received a lot of positive feedback from last week’s column. Here’s an example: Serah wrote: “A quick note of appreciation for your column on Representation Agreements, Wills and Blue Bottles this week. A little gang of us are working to settle a friend back to a place where she is safe and happy and your information adds to and really helps us to get all the skittles together upright and neatly on the bowling alley runway!” Well, Gary’s letter wasn’t actually positive. He must read my column Wednesday afternoons on the paper’s website because he wrote immediately: “No CPR...DNR? Shame on you Sally. Then there may be no more Sidewalk Superintendent to read.” If you missed reading the information, go to and scroll down to the April 26 Sidewalk Superintendent.

After his usual morning walk along the local roadside, our 15-month-old puppy started to act strangely. His eyes were glassy, he appeared to be very dizzy, and he was having great difficulty walking.

The vet was very good with him and after an extensive check up, assured us that the dog would be fine in a few

hours. It seems that he has seen many dogs exhibiting the same symptoms, and concluded that our puppy had eaten a marijuana butt from the side of the road. The effects of marijuana on animals is much more exaggerated than in humans. It can be a very scary experience for them as they have no idea what is happening to them. Pets have extreme reactions to bright light, loud noise and rapid movement. Their temperature drops and their heart beat

Letters to the Editor Disappointed with creationist meeting

I recently attended a public meeting in Chase on the topic of creation vs evolution. The event was sponsored by the Chase Evangelical Fellowship and featured Calvin Smith from an organization known as “Creation Ministries.” I attended with a few friends, anxious to discover what scientific evidence there was to support the creation myth and also to take part in the advertised Q & A with Mr. Smith. We were all sorely disappointed to say the least. Who could have guessed that we had walked into an episode of the Twilight Zone. If anyone in Chase thought that religious fundamentalism didn’t exist they’d best think again, because this was extreme and dangerous fundamentalist dogma at its worst. After an hour of being told that public schools and teachers are evil, along with pretty much everyone else that doesn’t take the bible absolutely literally, being told absolute lies and gross misrepresentations on almost anything you’d care to name; we didn’t even get our

ourselves, or if we can call up members of the church to do it. Spoiler alert! If you see people in Chase out collecting small rocks, you know someone has been caught with corn and carrots planted together. These books of the old testament that Mr. Smith believes are the absolute law of God contain justification and encouragement for such things as slavery, murder, infanticide, misogyny, genocide etc. etc. Name a disgusting practice and the bible condones it. “He commanded his army to kill every person in the town– men, women, and babies–but save the virgins for yourselves.” Nice sentiment, eh! And these people call themselves “Pro-Life.” How many babies and fetuses did God wipeout in the great flood? Well, based on what we know of the population of the Earth at the time, it could have been millions, but certainly hundreds of thousands. Oh that’s right, did I mention that Mr. Smith believes that there was a worldwide flood that

In 1989 I had a business in Salmon Arm. Part was renting U-Haul trailers and trucks. That was the year that 19,000 people moved to Alberta for work. The husband would go get a job and then rent a trailer there, drive it back to get his family and belongings, drive back to Alberta and leave it there, at a cost of about $2000. One dealer in Red Deer had 150 trucks in his yard. Now that the NDP have had their arse kicked out of Saskatchewan there is lots of work there and the province is a ‘have-province’ after 49 years, and after four years of NDP have never recovered. Stan Pollard, Salmon Arm

chance to discuss the issue with Mr. Smith as the promised Q & A failed to materialize. Not surprising, given the extreme rhetoric being spewed. His only evidence for creation it turns out was that the bible said so. That’s it, nothing else. And the earth is less than 10,000 years old because thats what the bible says. If you don’t accept everything literally, you’re not a real Christian. Mr. Smith, of course, failed to inform his amazingly credulous followers of a few of God’s laws that I’m sure they weren’t aware of. Here’s a juicy one from Leviticus: 19:19: ‘Keep my decrees. “‘Do not plant your field with two kinds of seed.” “‘Do not wear clothing woven of two kinds of material.” I wonder how many in the crowd were wearing cotton– polyester blends? The penalty for breaking these decrees? Yes you guessed it – death by stoning! We’re not sure if we are supposed to stone them to death

I am willing to embrace new and bold ideas and will seek the necessary means to make continued improvements for the Shuswap and BC.

murdered everyone except Noah and his family. Assuming that poor old Noah then had to repopulate the world from his own family, I can only imagine what Leviticus says about incest… Well, you probably get the picture by now. What was really sad was that some of the faithful choose to bring small children along to be terrified with them. Shame on the Chase Evangelical Fellowship and Creation Ministries.

Leo, there are things you need to say to a particular person in your life. But you do not know how to express your opinions in a way that’s easy to understand. Speak from the heart.

A rockin’ radiothon

Friday, May 3, 2013 Lakeshore News A9

By Duncan Myers, Shuswap Hospital Foundation The EZ Rock “Have a Heart” Radiothon was held all day last Friday at Save-On-Foods, with regular live announcements for the fundraising for a fetal monitor for the Shuswap Lake General Hospital’s pediatric ward. During the day $18,200 was raised from donors throughout the Shuswap, a huge chunk of the unit’s cost of $22,000. Volunteers assisted with phone in and direct donations at Save-OnFoods. Patrick Ryley, Rich Daniels, and station manager Ron Rutledge provided the on-air hosting of the popular annual event to raise funds for the Shuswap Lake Hospital. Over the years the event has helped to raise funds for many items of equipment, particularly for the pediatric department including a transport incubator, 2 regular newborn incubator units and funds that supported the purchase of the CT scanner. The Foundation is deeply appreciative of the radio station’s initiative and the generous support of the Shuswap community. In addition to the on-air coverage, the day was filled with the sounds of music performed by talented singers and musicians who generously donate their time to the event; including Anne Tanemura; Aileen White & Ken

Bell; Seal Skull Hammer, with Darren Herting, John Fleming and A. J. Gowen; Aimie Laws; The Elk Tribe; and Jesse Mast (below). The audience truly enjoyed all of the talented artists. Hospital medical staff provided information and assistance with blood sugar and blood pressure tests. Co-hosts of the event, the Save-On-Foods team provided food for over 300 hundred donors to the day’s event, Chestor’s provided their famous cinnamon buns and other treats, while the Shuswap Coffee Co. provided freshly brewed beverages.

Challenges were made all day long including Nico’s power hour, The Royal Purple donated $2,000 dollars, along with $1,000 from the Ladies Shuswap Lake Healthcare Auxiliary. Another $3,000 dollars came from Sorrento and Sicamous donors. In addition, many businesses provided great giveaways along with their donations and challenges to others. Rounding off the day were two draws: Twin Anchors Houseboats provided a weeklong vacation, won by Sandra Armstrong; and a pair of beautiful folding camper chairs, courtesy of Country Camping, won by Francis Greencorn.

Garden Club spring sale

The Shuswap Garden Club will be holding their annual spring plant sale May 11th. Garden club members donate many tried and true perennials, shrubs, fruit and berry plants and an assortment of annuals or herbs. The sale will take place at the Scout Hall 2460 Auto Road SE (the old Kin Hall & playgrounds). The sale will be held indoors, so rain or shine this event is a hit for gardeners who wish to purchase plants that have been started and for this area at a very reasonable price. The garden club will be hosting the Annual Flower Show in Piccadilly Mall on July 13th. This is an open juried show and everyone is encouraged to participate by showing your achievements with growing your beautiful flowers or displaying them in arrangements for everyone to enjoy. During the summer, garden tours

throughout the area are enjoyed every Thursday evening. Membership in the garden club is a very reasonable fee and this fee entitles members to receive discounts at local garden shops as well as the activities during the year. These include speakers or demonstrations at each meeting, social time or barbeques. Club members also donate to Haney Museum Park with spring clean up of their gardens. Shuswap Garden Club sponsors a bursary at the local High School for a student who will further their education in the horticulture or similar post secondary institution. Salmon Arm Fair classes in the vegetable and floral section are also sponsored by the club. Information on the garden club can be reached by telephone to Larry at 250-832-6342 or Kathy at 250-8322028.

Tax refund advice

Yeah! April 30th has come and gone! If you’re “lucky” you’ve filed your tax return, you’ve taken advantage of the many old and new tax credits available and you are now receiving a big refund from the government. Aren’t the folks in Ottawa and Victoria generous to give you ‘free’ money? Well, I don’t mean to pop your bubble, but the only money you receive back is money you had prepaid to the government in the first place. I am sorry to say they aren’t actually that generous; they are only giving you back your own money! I get asked the question all the time, “I thought I would get back a lot more money on my taxes?!” To which I have to respond, “You only get back the money you originally paid to the government.” If the government only took $200 off your pensions, the most they will give back is $200; even if you have $50,000 in donations or $50,000 in medical expenses. There are a few exceptions, but when it comes to tax returns the government doesn’t simply give you ‘free’ money. The question is what should you do with your refund? Go buy a new outfit? Perhaps go on a holiday? Well, those all sound great, but us bean counters like to suggest some more responsible ways to use these funds. 1. Pay off debt – if you are carrying large credit card bills or have a line of credit that needs to be paid down then use your tax refund. 2. Make a lump some contribution to your Retirement Savings Plan (RSP) – the sooner you make your RSP contribution, the sooner the money starts working for you. 3. Contribute to a Tax Free Savings Account (TFSA) – you can invest up to $5,500 dollars in 2013 and $5,000 in previous years into a TFSA. As it started in 2009, you could have contributed up to $25,500 by now. If you haven’t started one, now would be a good time. 4. Contribute to a Registered Education Savings Plan (RESP) – for those with children or grandchildren that are expected to pursue post-secondary education, you can invest up to $2,500 each year and receive a 20% grant ($500) from the government. The government does give out ‘free money’ once in a while! Who said they aren’t generous? So there you have it. Four practical and responsible ways you can use your tax refund. So start planning your holiday… I mean go talk to your financial advisor.

Wetlands course

By Jason Jobin, BC Wildlife Federation Did you know that wetlands, one of the most important life-supporting ecosystems on earth, are rapidly disappearing from our province? In developed areas, many of BC’s watery “kidneys” and “ecological supermarkets” have already vanished, and this is why we need engaged citizens to take an active role in protecting those that remain. The BC Wildlife Federation’s Wetlands Education Program is coming to the Shuswap region, and this environmental stewardship workshop for local residents will be held in Chase, running from Friday, May 10 to Sunday, May 12. As a result of generous contributions from our 2013 funders, we are able to bring this this valuable course free of charge. Courses are suitable to anyone from high school students to adults and are designed as citizen science tools to empower everyday people in conservation activities. People who have benefited from our courses include consultants, planners, environmental/conservation groups, government and First Nations representatives, engaged community members and keen outdoorsy types.

Good turnout for firefighters’ seminar Jackson property to be sold

If you were driving by Shaw Centre this past weekend and were surprised to see smoke rising from a wrecked vehicle surrounded by fire crews, you needn’t worry – it was simply the training exercises being conducted as part of the BC Volunteer Firefighting Spring Seminar. An annual event in BC, this is the third time since its inception in 1970 that Salmon Arm has played host, and the central location made for a good attendance; with a total of 388 firefighters representing 90 different fire departments all over the province. All of these were volunteers, and the function was run entirely by volunteers as well. The seminar was held at Shaw Centre and the fire training centre, located near the airport. Courses and training

were conducted at both locations. While a total of 45 trainers came to the event from elsewhere, the members of the Salmon Arm Fire Department carried out much of the training themselves, says firefighter Andreas Meerza, who added that the training role was a good education in itself for the local firefighters. Each attend-

ee completed 7 courses, with a range in scope; topics included confined spaces, auto extrication, explosions, forcible entry, power line safety, among many others. The Salmon Arm Fire Department has had much positive feedback on the seminar, with participants and visitors praising the event’s organization and the hospitality of the local hosts. The fire department is always looking for volunteers–contact City of Salmon Arm Fire Department, 141 Ross Street NE at 250803-4060. You can also find them on Facebook.

With previous attempts not being successful, School District No. 83 (North Okanagan-Shuswap) is again looking at new options for the former J. L. Jackson property. A request for proposal for the “old Jackson property” is once again being advertised; however, this time the decision has been made to sell the property. Board chairperson Bobbi Johnson explains that over the past 10 years the school district has pursued a number of options for the unused portions of the 12 acre site located in downtown Salmon Arm, to benefit local education. She notes that if the property were leased then the revenue could be used to benefit local education but if the property is sold, the ministry rules are that it must go to capital funds, which cannot be used for operating expenses. In its first request for proposal to lease the property, the school district had a developer interested, but was turned down for its re-zoning request by the city, therefore, this option failed. From there the school district went through two extensive consultation processes and then re-issued a Request for Proposal for Lease with the new Official Community Plan designation (retail, service, office and multi-family residential use) but was unable to find a developer interested. Finally, the district decided to sell

the land, applied to the ministry to do this, and recently received permission to sell, as long as the sale is completed by March 31, 2014. With that timeline in mind, school district representatives approached the Okanagan College, City of Salmon Arm and the Downtown College Campus Committee, as they had indicated an interest in securing the land for a downtown college site. Unfortunately, they have thus far been unable to secure funding for this project. School District Project Co-ordinator Bruce Hunt reports he has now placed a new request for proposal to sell the former Jackson property on the BC Bid website ( and are notifying a list of 130 developers in B.C. and Alberta. He notes one difference in this new proposal is that they are letting people know they can purchase one or both of the parcels that comprise the property (4.8 acres and 4.5 acres, the balance of 2.7 acres is being retained for school district use). He is hopeful the school district will receive some good options to choose from, as the former Jackson property, which is located at 451 Shuswap Street in Salmon Arm, is well-located and highly accessible. The deadline for submitting a proposal is June 18th by 2 p.m.

Salmon Arm “champ” awarded medal

Rachel Caira of Salmon Arm has been awarded the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal by the Chancellery of the Governor General. A right leg amputee due to cancer, and a graduate of The War Amps Child Amputee Program (CHAMP), Rachel was nominated for the medal and accompanying certificate by The War Amps in recognition of her long time involvement, together with her

contributions to her community, amputation awareness and keeping the Remembrance message going among youth. Rachel now lives in Terrace. “It was a privilege for us to be able to secure this honour for Rachel as a means of acknowledging her role in helping to build The War Amps into the organization it is today,” said Danita Chisholm, Executive Director of the CHAMP Program.

ive the gift of green for Mother’s Day

Mom may appreciate chocolate or flowers. But for children who want to offer her something a little more special -- especially for their eco-conscious moms -- there are a number of different gift options to make Mom’s big day as eco-friendly as it is enjoyable.

An eco-friendly gift for Mom is a gift that keeps on giving. When you jot down your gift idea list, think about adding these “green” gifts. * Make a basket of gardening gear. Garden plants and supplies are perhaps the greenest gifts to give Mom. Plants are so plentiful and varied that there are bound to be ideal flowers or greenery for every mother’s tastes. Compile different gardening essentials, such as seeds or seedlings, organic soil mix, mulch, all-natural compost, and a few different planting containers. You can also include gardening gloves and ergonomic tools made of recycled materials. Finish the gift with the inclusion of a book that describes different garden designs and gives tips for beginners. * Dine at a local restaurant. Many families take Mom out for a meal on her special day. To make the experience eco-friendly, select among restaurants that are close to home in the area. Explore the possibilities of restaurants that may serve foods made with local, organic ingredients. If you cannot find such a restaurant, do not worry, just choose a local establishment to conserve fuel. * Pay for a car tuneup. Improving the gas mileage on Mom’s car is one gift that can be environmentally friendly. According to the United States Department of Energy, keeping a car in shape can help save

her car tires properly inflated. She can be losing gas mileage by 0.3 percent for every 1 psi drop in all four tires. Getting an oil change with the recommended grade of motor oil is another gas mileage improvement measure.

appreciate some new mixing bowls or utensils made from recycled materials. If Mom is the consummate entertainer, get her new glass tumblers and sipping straws made from recycled glass. They are perfect for serving cocktails

treat your mother to a spa experience at home by assembling a basket full of organic shampoo, conditioner, massage oils, bath salts, and any other organic spa items you can find. * Select organic fruits

and flowers. Companies like can assemble a bouquet made from responsibly grown flowers or even a wreath for a wall or door. They also have food gifts, from organic fruits to nuts.

* Spend the day outdoors. Most moms cherish any gift from their children, whether lavish or simple. A nice, eco-friendly gift is to spend time together. Research local parks or hiking trails and plan a day where you both commune with nature. Or even head to the seaside for a relaxing day. Explore the landscape and be on the lookout for birds and washed up treasure from the sea. Plan to finish the day with a homemade, picnic lunch.

eryone else, they often put themselves last on the list. If you are a busy mom, here are some simple ideas to nurture and pamper yourself and keep that inner spark glowing:

Diet and Exercise: Women who eat right and get enough sleep usually experience greater levels of energy, lower levels of stress, and increased self-esteem. In fact, some forms of exercise can be fun to do with children too, so everyone can benefit. Home Spa: A woman

deserves to be pampered, but she doesn’t always have the time or budget to get away for some spa time. Why not turn your bathroom into a home spa to help you enjoy the relaxation and beauty benefits of a sublime soak. Pursue Hobbies: A few hours of pure creative engagement apart from the family (think art class, photography, or a pottery workshop) can recharge your batteries. Volunteer: Volunteering is another way to nurture your interests

Come explore the possibilities

By Stephanie Morin-Davis I was told that the prospect of attending Word On The Lake was intimidating – that only those who were serious writers and educated readers went to “those sorts of things.” Upon hearing that, a twinge of guilt began to gnaw at me. I have attended the festival, yet I am neither a serious writer nor am I particularly well-read. According to the aforementioned philosophy, I was an imposter and had crashed the party. Well, I had a blast, learned a lot, and was stimulated by a greater desire to further explore the writer in me. We all have a history full of stories to tell, be it family memoirs or a fruitful imagination away on a fanciful journey. For all levels of readers and writers, Word On The Lake is a perfect platform to explore the possibilities and gain an understanding as to how to put it on a page. So come crash the party and have some fun with words and your imagination. Presenter Garry Gottfriedson, a

member of the Secwepemc First Nation, is a poet, a teacher at Chief Atahm School in Adams Lake, an author of children’s books, and a self-employed rancher. Born into a ranching and rodeo family in Kamloops, this award winning author has drawn upon his cultural history and experience to create a number of highly acclaimed books of poetry and prose. In 1997, he was inducted into the International Poetry Hall of Fame. During his workshop entitled The Art of Imagery in Poetry, Gottfriedson will illustrate how to effectively employ imagery in poetry. Participants will play with their imaginations and use the mental images produced to construct metaphors. Participants will examine how the sound within words, vowels, and consonants is critical to poetic expression in a nurturing environment. If you are a lover of fantasy and speculative fiction, then the workshop Possible Worlds is a must-at-

tend. B.C. based writer, story editor, and publisher Scott Fitzgerald Gray will take you into the creation of fantastic worlds, rich with fantastic narratives, and alive with fantastic characters. He will discuss the popularity of imaginative fiction and its place in history and culture. Gray tells that his calling to a literary career began in fourth grade. Once he whetted his appetite for literary escapism he “abandoned” any future prospects for a real career. Gray has written for film, episodic and documentary television. He has published books under his own Insane Angel Studios imprint, designs and edits role-playing games, and mentors other writers. He was a finalist for the inaugural Jim Burt Screenwriting Prize from the Writer’s Guild of Canada. This is the perfect opportunity for readers to delve into the mind of a writer of fantastic fiction. For more info visit www.saow. ca.

recent years with the takeover of introduced invasive fish such as perch, smallmouth bass and goldfish, which basically caused the ecosystem of the lake to collapse. Gone were most of the trout, frogs, insects, and songbirds. In 2009 the lake was treated with rotenone by Ministry of Environment staff. Thousands of dead invasive fish were collected and removed to two deep holes in the lake so that their slow decay would add nutrients to the lake. In 2010 and 2011, quick-growing Blackwater/Fraser Valley trout were introduced. Invertebrates and other aquatic insects have now multiplied and even tripled in number. Frog, turtle and bird numbers are increasing again and the lake is making a strong comeback. I’ve had a long love affair with Gardom Lake. When my husband and I moved to Salmon Arm more than 25 years ago, we quickly discovered the pleasures of the lake. In those early days there was a floating boardwalk that stretched from near Gardom Lake Park across the water to the larger of two islands in the lake. We had fun exploring by foot the old growth forest on Main Island. When the boardwalk was removed, the only way to reach the

One of my favourite local lakes to visit and canoe is Gardom Lake, located between Salmon Arm and Enderby, just west of Highway 97B. It is usually peaceful and quiet; it doesn’t take long to get there; and wildlife sightings are frequent and varied. On a warm spring day we’ve counted hundreds of basking turtles; many birds including eagles, grebes, and loons; and numerous insects and bugs, not to mention the fish lurking below. The lake covers 77 hectares and has an average depth of 8.8 metres, with a maximum depth of 24 metres. Its source of water is primarily from natural springs beneath the lake. Originally called Loon Lake by locals, it was later named Gardom Lake after the family that farmed there. The lake has had problems in more

island was to swim, wade across a narrow channel at the north end, wait for winter ice or travel by boat or canoe! That’s another advantage of having a watercraft with which to explore the whole lake. Just remember there is a 10 horse power motor limit at the moment and using electric motors or non-motorized craft is preferable. (Legislation has been forwarded to Ottawa to have gas motors banned.) The various areas of Gardom Lake have different appearances and attractions. Making a circle of the lake on the water takes you from a beach park; around two islands; in front of attractive waterfront cabins, homes and gardens; by bushes, large trees and natural habitat; past a busy (at times) summer camp; to more trees and a secluded bay where a family of loons often live and nest. The second island is called Turtle Island, and for good reason, as dozens of turtles climb on to logs along its shore on a warm day. Gardom Lake Park, on the west side of the lake on Park Road, is a pleasant place to spend a summer day, with a beach, picnic tables, playground, floating docks, and outhouses. Other facilities have also recently been added by the CSRD to the Musgrave Road area.

Public access in a changing world

In BC we are truly blessed, with the many places we can travel to, have access to, and the freedom and liberty to fish, camp, hike, and enjoy each experience; even to remote wilderness areas. As the province’s population expands, and the ethnic demographics shift, values change. Growth continues; be it more housing, more land use, development, more mines, dairies, petroleum/gas exploration, or timber harvest. But the simple question remains: will we be able to maintain into the future the ability to enjoy the freedoms we have today? In an Outdoor Canada fishing edition last spring, there was a photo of an opening day of 127 anglers, dotting the banks of an Ontario trout stream. We are seeing increasingly more angling pressure on the Shuswap, Mara, and White Lake, with more retiree’s and new young anglers. As well, down the road, biologists predict there will be waiting times to put your boat in the water at local launch sites. Campsites, too, will be filled to capacity. Unless there is an easement, access to crown lands over private property can be a thorny issue. Development around Campbell Lake, southwest of Knutsford, has put anglers in a bind. There have recently been more access restrictions applied to fishing lakes in the Nicola/ Merritt region, by forest companies in their harvesting tenures, and ranchers worried about liability. After all, we are beginning to become more litigious like Americans–when we have an injury, we run to a lawyer first, then to a doctor. In land use, regional planners scope out, plan, and allow for future launch sites on lakes, or more park space, green areas. The grey area happens when there was always a public maintained, or gazetted road running through private property, or to a lodge/established ranch/facility/used buy the public.

Postill Lake sits high on a plateau east of Kelowna. As former landowners there, we drove the kids down the 10 miles each day to the school bus. In the winter we used a snowmobile. With the Cat, we ploughed the road till the snow got too deep. Research showed that it was gazetted under sec. 94 of BC’s Highway Act. I radio-phoned the highways manager, threatening a lawyer and visit. He stated that they had a bit of money left over. Two days later, at about 11 a.m. a D7 cat, pushing 3 feet of heavy packed snow, had the road right to the main lodge open. It remains that way to this day. The battle brewing over Stoney/Minnie Lake through Douglas Lake Ranch property has taken a turn to the courts as well. The Nicola Valley Rod and Gun Club knew all along that the road was maintained by the Dept. of Highways, many years ago. Members of the club who were employed by the department surveyed the road. Other employees worked on or graded that road, under threat by the R.C.M.P. Denied by the District manager of Highways, in Kamloops. All factions sided with the ranch. Logs were dumped across the road. A bridge was chainsawed out. With that, the R.C.M.P. backed off, allowing anglers access with no charges of trespass. The club, showing guts and determination, are willing to stand up in court, with a well-known lawyer behind them now, to take on the multi-millionaire owner of the ranch. Checking old survey maps, club members also recently took down a range fence adjacent to Courtney Lake, which is Crown land, and used by the ranch for grazing cattle for decades. All hunters, anglers and the public need to be more aware of what is transpiring around them. A prime example of this is the residents of White Lake taking on BC

While walking an old logging road up Mt. Ida, with just his long bow, Myles Johnson spotted the bear tearing out rotted stumps. Stalking through a clearcut to 100 yards, he realized just how big the bear was. Myles then got to 60 yards, as the big bruin lay down. With the wind right, and heart thumping, he approached, one step at a time. He arrowed the giant at 22 yards. The bear went into heavy blow-down.

ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT Symphony season finishes Enderby gallery now open

The grand finale of the Kamloops Symphony’s 2012-2013 season is coming up quickly, and you’ll want to be sure you can add A Splendid Adventure on Friday, May 10th to your list of memorable live music experiences. A Splendid Adventure will be performed at SASCU Recreation Centre’s auditorium, at 7:30 p.m. This program consists of two major orchestral works - Harold in Italy by Hector Berlioz and Symphony No.1 by Dmitri Shostakovich. Harold in Italy was written in 1834 by a composer who was a lofty idealist with a leaping imagination. Shostakovich’s first symphony was written almost a century later, by a student graduating from the Leningrad Conservatory who had yet to establish himself and his compositional style. This symphony accorded the composer international prominence. Dmitri Shostakovich (1906-1975) was a Russian composer whose symphonies and quartets, numbering 15 each, are among the greatest examples of these classic forms from the twentieth century. His first major musical achievement was Symphony #1 (premiered 1926), written as his graduation piece at the age of nineteen. The work so impressed the conductor Bruno Walter, that he conducted it at its Berlin premiere later that year. Leopold Stokowski was equally impressed, gave the work its U.S. premiere the following year and also made the work’s first recording. Commissioned in 1834 by the virtuoso Paganini as a viola concerto, Harold in Italy became a sym-

phony in four movements with solo viola, purportedly drawn from elements of Childe Harold’s Pilgrimage, a narrative poem in four parts written by Lord Byron. The poem describes the travels and reflections of a world-weary young man who, disillusioned with a life of pleasure and revelry, looks for distraction in foreign lands. Harold in Italy is among Berlioz’ most successful in the genre of program music. Véronique Saucier is usually heard leading the Kamloops Symphony’s viola section. For this performance she will step into the spotlight as the featured soloist. Véronique was born in France into a family of musicians. After 14 years of violin study in both France and Germany, she tried the viola and fell in love with the warm sound of this instrument. She perfected her skills as a violist in Paris and then went to Bordeaux, where she earned her Bachelor of Music in Viola performance. In 1995, Véronique began her professional career as an orchestral performer, teacher and chamber musician. She arrived in the Okanagan in 2008, established her music studio in Kelowna and is now Principal Viola of the Kamloops Symphony and a member of the faculty of the Penticton Academy of Music. Tickets for Friday night’s performance can be purchased at Wearabouts, 350 Alexander Street; adults tickets are $27, and students/children are $10. Program and ticket information is available at

By Tatianna O’Donnell, Chair, Courtyard Gallery The gala opening of the Courtyard Gallery was a wonderful success. After the mayor, Howard Cyr, cut the ribbon to officially signal the opening of the gallery, over 300 people arrived to join the artists in their celebration. Those who helped the artists celebrate came not only from Enderby, but also from Salmon Arm, Lumby, Armstrong and Vernon. Julia Armstrong provided music

with her harp. Refreshments were served, and much fun was had by all. The comments were very supportive and artwork was sold on opening night as well as on subsequent days. This was a grand celebration of BC Arts and Culture Week in Enderby. Courtyard Gallery is located at 907 Belvedere St. The hours of operation are Tuesday to Saturday from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Visit Photo contributed.

The flavour of the music will be dixieland and swing that will include many jazz standards from the 1920’s to 1930’s, with up-tempo tunes to make you tap, sing and maybe even dance; included also will be some slow blues numbers. The quintet consists of John Hansen (banjo, vocals); Terry Kosowick (trumpet); Sandy Cameron (clarinet); Gord Waters (trombone); Jim Johnston (piano); Arianne Charon (bass); and Doug Grant on drums. Come and be entertained–you won’t be disappointed. Admission by donation.

Capricorn, an event this week gets you fired up and excited. It could be the news you have been waiting to hear from work or from a significant other.


Aquarius, knowing when to keep quiet can be difficult, especially when you suspect something is off-kilter. This week you will be put to the test.


Pisces, the week may begin somewhat aimlessly, but things will all come together by the middle of the week.


Aries, you may feel like you need to move faster to get ahead, but the opposite is true this week. Slow down and focus on the details and you will benefit.

PUZZLE NO. sU13503


Taurus, though the first few days of the week may seem disastrous, hang in there and you will find things will turn around quite quickly.


Gemini, sometimes you have to make some noise to be heard, which may seem out of character for you. If the cause is that important, you will do what is necessary.


Cancer, you can’t get enough of a certain thing, but you may need to pace yourself. Otherwise your interest may start to wane. A surprise situation arises on Thursday.


Leo, there are things you need to say to a particular person in your life. But you do not know how to express your opinions in a way that’s easy to understand. Speak from the heart.


You may be feeling a bit under the weather this week, Virgo. It’s likely due to you pushing your schedule to the limits. Schedule some recovery time for yourself.


Libra, you need to rely on someone this week for a big project, but you don’t know who to choose. Make a list of your best prospects, and then you can narrow it down from there.

Williams sell SilverBacks

The Salmon Arm SilverBacks ownership group of Randy and Terry Williams are pleased to announce that they have agreed to a deal in principal to the sell the club to a new ownership group led by current General Manager Troy Mick. The Williams family has owned the team for the past 6 seasons and has enjoyed great success both on and off the ice with 5 playoff appearances and over 40 NCAA scholarships during their tenure. As part of the ownership transition the new group has decided not to renew Head Coach Scott Robinson’s contract. The SilverBacks would like to thank Scott for his contribution to the organization and wish him the best of luck in

his future endeavours. The new group will be led by Mick, who will continue his duties as General Manager while adding the role of President and Head Coach at the request of the new ownership group which is set to take control of the organization as early as May 1st, pending final approvals. Randy and Terry Williams would like to thank all of their partners, fans, volunteers and the entire community of Salmon Arm for their support over the past 6 seasons. They are very proud to pass the torch off to the new ownership group and wish the organization and the community of the Salmon Arm the best of luck moving forward.

Don’t take your muscles for granted. Over 50,000 Canadians with muscular dystrophy take them very seriously. Learn more at SATURDAY, MAY 11, 2013

Salmon Arm Downtown Salmon Arm is the gem and economic hub of the Shuswap. Surrounded by Shuswap Lake, rich farmland, forested highlands and mountains it’s easy to see why it is the favourite destination spot from generation to generation. The downtown itself is a vibrant mix of restaurants, coffee shops, artisan shops and galleries, specialty stores and boutiques that offer items you just can’t find anywhere else. The town is compact and walkable. You can see buildings that were

built in the early 1900s and new stores which have everything from hot pies out of the oven, donairs and pet spas, a variety of restaurants, two cinemas, numerous gift shops, banks, and much much more, with a profusion of summer flowers gracing every light standard and sidewalk. Come downtown. Park at the Ross St. parking lot, free for two hours, and stroll around. You’ll be glad you did.

SAGA Public Art Gallery

In the heritage brick building near the top of Hudson Ave, a unique cultural experience resides. The light shining through the Palladian windows onto the original maple floors illuminates the magnificent works of local artists who work in a diverse range of media. The building, commissioned in 1937 as the town’s first post office, has been a library and, since 1994, the Arts Centre. The gallery, along with SAGA, Shuswap Art Gallery Association, formed in 1990 with the intent to create a permanent home for visual art exhibitions, has become well-known in Western Canada for the dedication of its volunteers. The gallery is open Tuesday through Saturday, 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., at its location at 70 Hudson Ave. See a list of gallery events on the next page.


Salmon Arm’s Visitor Information Centre is housed in one of the city’s finest heritage buildings. The Old Courthouse, located at 20 Hudson Ave. NE, originally held Salmon Arm’s courthouse, but, after the courts moved to the New City Hall, the Old Courthouse was refurbished to its original grandeur and houses a variety of businesses including the Visitor Information Centre. Home to a large selection of brochures specifying the Shuswap’s wide-ranging vacation ideas, the Visitor Centre can be the source of answers to most of your questions about the area. You will have no trouble finding something entertaining to do while visiting the Shuswap. The Visitor Centre has public washrooms and full wheelchair access. Business services (faxes, photocopies, and internet) are provided for a fee. Hours are 8-6 daily, May 16 to Sept. 1, and 8:30–4:30 Mon–Fri, 9–4 Sat–Sun Sept. 1 to Oct. 20. After that the centre is only open Mon–Fri.

Would you and your family like a nice place to eat lunch and enjoy some music at the same time? In downtown Salmon Arm, the Ross St Plaza holds concerts on the Lunchbox Stage every Friday from 12:30– 1:30 p.m. throughout July and August.

an open grass area or table to enjoy a family picnic. In addition to Fletcher Park, public washrooms can also be found at Ross St. Plaza in the downtown core, as well as on the waterfront, in the parking lot of Marine Peace Park.

McGuire Lake

Located at 681 Trans Canada Highway, almost perfectly centered in Salmon Arm, lays the scenic McGuire Lake. It is a short, easy walk around, and is completely wheelchair accessible. McGuire Lake is a popular spot for kids and adults alike due to the beautiful willow trees, grassy areas, and abundance of Mallard ducks and Western Painted Turtles. Watch for the turtles vying for basking space on the various exposed logs. There are picnic tables for eating al fresco, and benches along the walkways provide a beautiful view of the lake and

its fountain. Visit the Friendship Gate, the symbol of our relations with our sister city, Inashiki, Ibaraki, Japan.

Little Mountain Park

On the edge of Salmon Arm resides the aptly named Little Mountain Park, a green haven surrounded by residential developments. In the quiet forested paths you’ll find the simple beauty of the natural world. Eight kilometres of trails challenge multiple levels of hiking abilities, and are enjoyable walks of just the right length. From the viewpoint at the ‘mountain’ summit you can gaze at views of Salmon Arm, Salmon Arm Bay, Fly Hills, Mount Ida, and spring wildflowers along the west-facing bluffs. In the late spring and early summer the park is overrun with small frogs just out of the tadpole stage.

The parking lot at the downtown wharf will connect you to Marine Peace Park and Salmon Arm Waterfront Raven Trail, viewing platforms, and Christmas Island. Be sure to stop by the SABNES Nature Centre during the summer months, and check the bulletin boards year-round for local bird counts and sighting updates. The Raven trail to Christmas Island is rife with diverse animal and plant life. Salmon Arm Bay is home to the largest breeding colony of grebes in BC, and if you’re visiting in the late spring/early summer, you’re more than likely to witness their beautiful mating dance. With low-level viewing platforms in the wetlands and many benches along the trail, it’s a great nature walk for the whole family. If you’re here looking to experience the outdoors, you shouldn’t miss this area of Salmon Arm.

Near the town of Enderby, Gardom Lake is a popular area for bird watching, canoeing, kayaking, swimming, and fishing. The community day park has picnic tables, a small beach, a grassy area, and outhouses. It’s the perfect place to go for a family picnic, or to simply relax in the outdoors. The lake itself has several floating docks, a diving board, and two small islands – Turtle Island and Osprey Island. Turtle Island has a network of trails through an old-growth fir forest, which you are welcome to explore, and at least one bald eagle nest. There is also a boat launch just past the park, but note that gas motors are limited to maximum 10 horsepower on this lake. In order to get there, travel south from Salmon Arm on Hwy. 97A about 11 kilometres from the Hwy. 1 junction; turn right onto Gardom Lake Rd, and travel about 3.5 kilometres. At Park Road, turn left, and go about 0.5 kilometres until you find Gardom Lake Regional Park on the left-hand side of the road.

Shuswap Lake—four lakes in one

Imagine a huge letter ‘H,’ carved into granite and filled with water, and you have begun to describe Shuswap Lake. Comprised of four arms, Shuswap Lake includes the Shuswap Lake Main Arm, Salmon Arm, Anstey Arm and Seymour Arm, all meeting in the middle at Cinnemousun Narrows. Mature salmon return every fall from the Pacific Ocean to breed and die in the streams and rivers of their birth, following the South Thompson River into Little Shuswap Lake, Adams River, and Shuswap Lake. For thousands, the journey continues east, right through to Mara and Mabel Lakes. Because of its location in the Columbia Mountain Range, Shuswap Lake is already more than 340 metres, or 1100 feet, above sea level, and like most mountain lakes, it’s deep, more than 160 metres (520 feet), ideal for fish that need cool, deep, water. Along the almost 350 kilometres of shoreline, the lake’s shallower waters warm up to a delightful 71-72 degrees Fahrenheit in summer, ideal for bathers and boaters, who generally prefer their water at warmer temperatures than what the fish enjoy.

Fishing in the Shuswap

The Shuswap area is one of the most beautiful fishing destinations in all of British Columbia. The area boasts an abundance of lovely little lakes which surround the prime jewel – Shuswap Lake. Shuswap Lake provides over 1400 square kilometres over deep blue shoals and spectacular structure that’s great for fishing. The lake is also 500 feet deep in spots, were you can hope to catch a deep water lunker. Shuswap Lake holds a number of sport fish for your angling pleasure, with the most popular being the Shuswap rainbow

trout. These coldwater bars of chrome will give you a battle you won’t find anywhere else, running into the depths and then tail-dancing across the surface. This rainbow is a one-of-akind fish genetically native to only the Shuswap Lake. These silver fish can reach weights up to 20 pounds so hold on to your rods! There are two different kinds of char in the Shuswap Lake, the most plentiful being the mighty lake trout or gray. These big fish like to hide down in the deep blue depths and will feed ferociously on just about anything. The other big char in the Shuswap is the bull trout. The bull trout is the ultimate predator and will strike at just about anything that swims into its territory. You’ll see where this fish gets its name

from when you get one on your line as it head-shakes and bulldogs its way (hopefully) into your net. The two other types of sport fish in the Shuswap Lake are kokanee and freshwater burbot. These may be the two best eating fish in the Shuswap, but can also be the most elusive. Kids enjoy catching another fish, the pike minnow, from the shore, off docks, boats and near river mouths. Though this fish is not considered a sport fish, it is easy to catch and a favourite for the kids. All types of anglers can find success on the Shuswap Lake from trolling a small bucktail fly along the sandy dropoffs in spring, to trolling the depths with downriggers or just casting a lure from shore. The Shuswap Lake is a very familyfriendly and affordable fishing adventure. You can camp at one of the small rustic campsites around the lake, find a provincial campsite or sleep at one of the resorts close by. Tackle shops are always ready to help set you up and give you some tips before your day on the water, or you can just show up and have a local guide take you out for a day of wonderful fishing. Before heading out please check local regulations.

River fishing

2013 Shuswap Visitors’ Guide 16




There are a number of rivers that flow from our surrounding mountains down into the Shuswap Lake and can offer you world-class fishing. The Adams River is the most popular river on the lake. Anglers flock from all around the world to fish this river in the late summer and fall, to catch numerous rainbow on the fly. The Eagle River is a slow-winding river which flows into the Shuswap near Sicamous. Hold on to your rods well when fishing this river as it holds big bull trout over 15 pounds, as well as plentiful numbers of rainbow trout.

SALMON ARM 2013 Shuswap Visitors’ Guide 18

R.J. Haney Heritage Village and Museum Have you ever wondered what life was like back in the pioneer days? R. J. Haney Heritage Village and Museum is located on the site of an old pioneer farm, giving visitors a great insight to what life was like a hundred years ago. Considered to be the Shuswap’s greatest heritage attractions, the museum has managed to acquire and replicate several important buildings from the Shuswap’s history. Let the kids pan for ‘gold’ as you enjoy a remarkable cup of tea at Marjorie’s Tea Room, or even stay for lunch. Afterward, you can take an easy thirty minute walk on the 1.1 kilometre nature trail through four different geoclimatic zones. Be sure to take a Haney field guide with you, and try to identify the plants the pioneers used for their food and medicine. Don’t forget to go and enjoy the popular Villains and Vittles Dinner Theatre, starting July 1st. The play will be held in the

great amphitheatre, and is always a joy to watch! No matter what the production, it is sure to feature some aspect of local history while being enormously entertaining. Just a few minutes east of Salmon Arm, R.J. Haney Heritage Village is an easy find, accessible from Highway 97B just south of the Trans Canada Highway junction. Starting the third week of May, the Museum will be open for the summer season. For more information about hours and events, call 250-832-5243 or email

Wednesday on the Wharf

During the summer, Wednesday on the Wharf (WoW) is where to be! Family and friends of all ages can come together and enjoy live music while relaxing in the beautiful Marine Peace Park. This very popular event, in its 20th year, features the best talent that the Shuswap (and beyond) has to offer, and is always an enjoyable way to spend your Wednesday evenings in the summer. It is a free event, with donations taken at intermission. The music starts at 6:45 p.m. and runs until around 8:15 p.m. Musical acts vary from folk to reggae, blues to rock, and attendees are invited to bring their own lawn chairs or blankets, and simply enjoy these talented performances while mixing with the community of Salmon Arm. onthewharf

Salmon Arm Roots and Blues Festival

festival is Butterscotch, a singer/beat boxer who incorporates her musical background of piano, guitar and bass into her compositions and performances. She is heavily influenced by jazz, classical, hip hop and R&B artists, ranging from Frederic Chopin to John Coltrane to Stevie Wonder. Felix Zenger is returning to Roots and Blues with a show-stopping entry that has been the scene for the past couple of years. Praised by the likes of Pharrell Williams, and rubbing shoulders with such talent as Kid Koala, Bahamadia and Blu, Zenger is also a YouTube hit thanks to his remarkable performance clips. The Harpoonist & the Axe Murderer are a sweaty fling between a sack full of harmonicas, a mess of foot percussion, and a very greasy Telecaster. Shawn Hall and Matthew Rogers say they’re making blues for a changing world, but a fan put it even better: this is ‘blues that gets you in the crotch.’ Malcolm Holcombe, born and raised in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, is finally being recognized by the American and European folk/ Americana community as a performer of national stature, and an uncommonly unique guitarist/vocalist. Sallie Ford & the Sound Outside will rock your socks off! She rages against soundalike pop stars foisted on the public by

mainstream media. Sallie Ford & the Sound Outside vigorously mine a sweet spot between modern and vintage music. Shakura S’Aida brings her inspiration to the stage this year as well. She is an international artist whose involvement in the Canadian music scene has been ongoing for almost 25 years. Shakura instantly connects with her listeners and at the same time richly demonstrates the multiculturalism that Canada prides itself on. Having rocked the bar many times, Juno nominee Skratch Bastid is now ready to raise it. In 2013, he has become one of Canada’s most in-demand DJs and respected producers. Be sure to get your tickets soon. Unleash your inner blues and get to know some new faces. You’ll have the time of your life!

Salmon Arm Fall Fair

2013 Shuswap Visitors’ Guide

Is there really any better way to spend a gorgeous early fall day than walking along the midway while inhaling the smell of mini donuts and popcorn? If you agree that this sounds like a perfect weekend, then don’t forget to visit the Salmon Arm Fall Fair September 6, 7, 8! “Dig the Diversity” as you enjoy the different activities that the Salmon Arm Fall Fair has to offer. This year’s theme speaks to the variety of different exhibits of crafts, baking, fruits and vegetables, wine, scarecrows, and, of course, the animals! Don’t forget to come and watch some of the horse, cattle, goat, sheep, and dog shows that take place all weekend. Come and see the heavy horse pull, light horse classes, sheep shearing, or even the mutt show. With so much going on every second of the day, there is guaranteed to be something for every person in the family to enjoy. If you have a daring side, then the midway is worth visiting. Rides vary to accommodate all ages, and wristbands are sold for only $35 each. Parents, if you are into agriculture and don’t feel like spinning in a million circles with your kids, be sure to check out all of the special displays that the fair has to offer, including tractors, antique cars, and even a Shuswap singing competition and dance show. A visit to Salmon Arm this September wouldn’t be complete without visiting the 116th annual Fall Fair.

Salmon Arm Open daily at 7 am


Top of the Hill, Salmon Arm • 250-832-9991

We have our reasons No formal study has ever been done on the phenomenon of the number and variety of restaurants and coffee shops in Salmon Arm. But here is the result of an unscientific poll on the question why Salmon Armenians love their local eating establishments so much that they go out for breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert and coffee. 1. It tastes really good - 40% 2. I like the variety - 23%

3. It’s more social - 20% 4. I can’t make this at home - 15% 5. Hate doing dishes - 1% 6. Can’t cook - 1% This might explain why a city of this size can support Mexican, Thai, Chinese, Japanese, Indian and Italian restaurants along with bakeries, coffee shops, fast

food outlets, pizza parlours, fine dining, pub fare and seafood restaurants.

Sunnybrae Park

salmon arm/TAPPEN

Enjoy Your Vacation and Play Safely!

Sunnybrae Park, just off the Trans Canada Highway at Sunnybrae-Canoe Point Road, is a lovely place for a picnic. Adjacent to one of the many beautiful Shuswap beaches, it is a great place to spend a leisurely day with the family. There is a great playground for children, as well as a short trail up to the bluffs. If you follow this trail to the top, you’ll be rewarded with a stellar view of the lake.

Herald Park Be aware that visits to the ER at the hospital double each summer

Help us to continue to support the highest standards of care……… Please donate:

Herald Park, located west of Salmon Arm, 14 kilometers off the Trans Canada Highway, is a provincial park and an ideal destination for day-use, or even overnight camping. Swimming, fishing, and bird watching, as well as the nearby scenic Margaret Falls are among the activities available here for all ages who wish to spend an invigorating day outdoors. The three campgrounds in the park are open from May 1 to October 12. Keep in mind that the sites fill up quickly; reservations are recommended. The rest of Herald Park is open year-round. parkpgs/herald/

Margaret Falls

Across the road from Herald Provincial Park is one of Sunnybrae’s hidden gems – Margaret Falls. Margaret Falls may not be a beach, but the trail leading to the falls is across from the Provincial Park’s beach. A leisurely 15-minute walk up Reinecker Creek passes through a tremendous rock chasm eventually leading to the falls. The unique and sensitive ecosystem of flowers, trees and shrubs are part of the park’s natural heritage. The water from Reinecker Creek cascades down a 200foot sheer rock face creating a natural shower. If you look carefully you may be able to see the hidden cave at the base of the cliff directly behind the falls.

Carlin Hill Lavender is much more than lavender. The spring features a bulb display with lilacs, tulips, daffodils and hyacinths. The summer brings a spectacular border of lavender that surrounds the gardens. The smell of roses and lavender fill the air with a delicate fragrance. The waterfalls and bridge are an ideal area to sit and relax. Make your way down to the lavender field where there are over 1200 lavender plants. Lavender is at its best July 2nd-18th.

Blind Bay An eye on Blind Bay

Well-recognized as the Shuswap’s premier recreation and healthy, active lifestyle community, Blind Bay has much for its residents to be proud of. The population of this unincorporated area of over 8,000 is second only to that of the city of Salmon Arm; with the major distinction that Blind Bay has benefited from a focus placed on the quality of community lifestyle and recreational pursuits, in magnificent surroundings by the lake.

The community has been welcoming visitors for thousands of years. Shuswap First Nations recognized the bounty of the resources of the Shuswap way back when; later came the fur traders and the Canadian Pacific sternwheelers that opened up trade on the lake prior to the railway. This year Blind Bay celebrates 100 years since the establishment of a post office in the community, so its residents are hopeful that it may be in line for a special stamp issue. There are few places in North America

that can boast that ‘rush hour’ takes place when residents and visitors alike are engaging in their favourite recreational activity instead of fighting traffic. This includes golf, tennis, fishing, biking, sailing, boating, walking, birdwatching, kayaking, canoeing, or just enjoying the lakeside parks and beaches–there are favourites for each season. The sense of community is evident in the number of excellent facilities, events and programs that truly put a focus on involvement and fun. On July 1, Blind Bay’s Canada Day celebrations have become renowned, attracting visitors and residents alike to participate in a day of celebrations that is truly a family festival, where you feel welcome and at home on the shores of the Shuswap. As residents are quick to point out, you may be a stranger on arrival, but it’s not long before you become a true friend and neighbour.

Blind Bay Farmers’ Market

Blind Bay beaches

Shannon Beach

Shannon Beach is reached by taking the same directions as you would to get to the Blind Bay beaches, but instead of turning left after the Blind Bay Village Grocer, stay to the right heading toward Eagle Bay. The beach is about 19 kilometres past the store, with a trail down from Eagle Bay Rd. This site is over 18 hectares in size with 400 metres of shoreline. It’s got a small picnic area. There is a rope cordoning off the large swimming area, and a swimming raft for some extra fun.

Blind Bay

Blind Bay Beaches are two of the most popular beaches in the entire Shuswap. They are located close together, with one being shallower than the other. The sand is nice here and there are picnic tables and washrooms. To get here, go west from Salmon Arm and turn off the Trans Canada at Balmoral Road (at Balmoral Store) and travel about 3 kilometres to Blind Bay Rd where you’ll turn left (just past Blind Bay Village Grocer). It’s just another 1.3 kilometres down; watch for the signs.

Canada Day in Blind Bay

Blind Bay is definitely the place to be to celebrate Canada Day on July 1st. From the pancake breakfast to a grand fireworks display ending about 11:00 p.m., about 5,000 people show up for this annual, free fun family event. There are live bands, children’s games, a parade, crafts, face painting, classic cars, motorcross demonstrations, and a beer garden. Events take place at Centennial Field on the corner of Blind Bay Road and Centennial Drive, across from Shuswap Lake.

When you’re looking for something unusual to do with the whole family while on vacation, why not visit the Turtle Valley Donkey Refuge? Nestled on eighty acres in the cozy Turtle Valley, the refuge is now home to over forty donkeys that love attention! Enjoy meeting all of the donkeys, walking around the farm, having lunch at the fabulous picnic area, or even casting a line across the road in Phillips Lake. With the growing demand for a home for neglected donkeys, the Turtle Valley Donkey Refuge is always looking for donations, or any other help you can offer them. Since these lovely creatures have already been through so much in their lives, none of the donkeys is ever re-homed. The refuge also has space for emergency cases, but none of that would be possible without Rob Miller and Shirley Mainprize, the owners, as well as all of the selfless volunteers who donate much of their own time to the donkeys. Come and meet the resident donkeys at 1125 Ptarmigan Road this summer any We d n e s d a y , Saturday, and Sunday between 11:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Visit their website for information about special events.

the way, you can immerse yourself in the scenery and history of the area. In summer, the crystal clear water is warm and inviting: perfect for a swim. Many guests have seen wildlife such as bears, moose, deer, beaver, birds of prey, waterfowl, and of course salmon. Rafting is an exhilarating way to see this pristine river, which is fully protected within Roderick Haig-Brown Provincial Park.

Throw in a few campgrounds, sawmills and some nearby ranches and you’ve summed up what you’ll see in Malakwa. Or so you might think. But there is so much there for visitors; you really need to spend some time to explore and enjoy what the community has to offer.

waterfalls, old growth trees, ferns, and wild berry bushes. The round trip loop takes about 45 minutes to complete. Consider bringing bug repellent to ward off any mosquitos.

First of all there’s the fun Malakwa suspension bridge, which spans the Eagle River. It was originally built in 1915 to connect the farmers to the community. It was rebuilt to better standards in 1940 and it’s still in use today for locals and tourists. There’s the Eagle River Nature Trails and Yard Creek Provincial Park. Yard Creek is made up of 175 hectares of beautifully forested upland. With extensive hiking trails and a log picnic shelter, it’s a lovely spot; plus a great place to watch the natural phenomenon of the sockeye salmon spawning. History buffs will enjoy stopping at Craigellachie. It’s the location of the ceremonial last spike hammered by Canadian Pacific Railway Director Donald Smith into the Transcontinental Rail Line that united Canada from coast to coast on November 7th, 1885. At the site are picnic tables and Craigellachie Station, an information centre open from May to October.

Gorge Creek Trail

If you’re looking for a break from the heat, why not step into a fabulously shady bit of forest across the Trans Canada Highway from the Last Spike site in Craigellachie. An easy trail will take you two kilometres through a haven of

Crazy Creek Resort

An intriguing and delightful place to visit in the Eagle Valley is the Crazy Creek resort, located approximately 31 kilometres east of Sicamous, next to Crazy Creek and its cascading series of waterfalls. The privately owned resort currently has hot pools, a suspension bridge above the falls, boardwalks, viewing platforms, a courtyard and snack shop, RV sites and accommodation suites. The clear, blue, sparkling water of the four hot pools vary in temperature from hot and steamy to swimming pool temperature. The pools are open year round every day from 11 a.m. until 8:45 p.m. A pedestrian walkway over the Trans Canada Highway now safely links the parking lot next to the hot pool area with the waterfalls and suspension bridge via a trail over the highway and through the forest. The short, gradual climb leads to the west side of the creek and one end of the suspension bridge. Stairs descend the cliff side to a lower viewing platform with excellent views of the cascading falls and moss covered

rocks. Crossing the bridge also offers great views of the power and beauty of the falls, plus the fun of the gentle, swaying motion of the 73 metre long suspension bridge. On the far side is a pretty courtyard with a fountain and sculptures, plus a place to sit and enjoy ice cream or a snack from the small shop. Interpretive signs and photos near the bridge detail the history of the area, including how the creek water was used in times long past for the town of Taft once located nearby. The east side also has boardwalks and staircases that descend that side of the gorge, with fur-

ther excellent views of the falls, suspension bridge, stately tall trees and various green plants and ferns. Crazy Creek waterfalls offers a cool and refreshing visit in the forest and gorge, especially on a hot day, and always picturesque and interesting in all kinds of conditions.

Enchanted Forest & SkyTrek Adventure Park

Apr 12 - Oct 8

2013 Shuswap Visitors’ Guide

Have you been to The Enchanted Forest? If so, when was the last time? The Enchanted Forest brings you back in time with the fairy book tales with over 350 uniquely handcrafted figurines set amongst a beautiful old growth forest with 800-year-old cedars where young people can climb up, in and around the 3 little pigs’ homes, Swiss family Robinson home, loggers’ cabin and ride the wooden horse created from a tree. The nature trail provides an additional walk where you can learn through interpretative signage the various plants and vegetation in the forest, walk the long boardwalk where you’ll see beaver dams, salmon spawning beds and paddle a self-guided row boat amongst the lily pads and experience a little adventure with your children. The owners Rocky & Juliet Ehlers of The Enchanted Forest added the ultimate adventure SkyTrek Adventure Park which should be included in your “YOLO” (You Only Live Once) list. The park has expanded over the past 6 years and now includes a three-level High Ropes Challenge Course for ages 15 and up, a KTA (Kids Tree Adventure) smaller version of the High Ropes Challenge Course for ages 5 and up, an Adventure Tower for ages 6 and up including 2 Climbing Walls, Sky Drop, Sky Swing and Log Climb; and the latest addition of a Jungle Gym for children ages 2-12, where they can climb, roll, fly, hop and crawl gear-free to their hearts’ content.

Three Valley Gap is one of the B.C.’s treasures. It’s a combination of heritage ghost town and highclass services in one of the most beautiful spots in the entire province. Whether it’s a sunny day or the mist is hanging in the valley, you’ll want to stop and take some photos. Step back in time to the late 1800s when you wander through the village. Imagine what your routine might have been: St. Stephan’s Church and the barber or perhaps the Golden Wheel Saloon and the jail and sheriff ’s office? There are more than 25 restored historic buildings (gathered from around the province) assembled near the

original site of the town of Three Valley. You can also take in a show at the Walter Moberly Live Stage Theatre. If you don’t have time to do the ghost town, there’s a restaurant and a large gift shop with a truly impressive selection of jewelry, books, clothing, toys games and other giftware. The resort offers over 200 comfortable guest rooms, including family suites, loft rooms and specialty suites, featuring the Cave honeymoon suite. Amenities include indoor and outdoor gardens, lake and sandy beach, children’s play area, indoor swimming pool, family dining room and cafeteria, meeting and banquet facilities.

2013 Shuswap Visitors’ Guide

For hiking enthusiasts, the Enderby Cliffs hike is a rewarding but arduous climb – make sure you bring water! The climb takes roughly two hours each way and is an enjoyable way to spend a day. Climbers challenging the hike should go mid-morning or evening, as it can get extremely hot during the afternoons. The Enderby Cliffs tower high above the city, offering breathtaking views of the Shuswap and North Okanagan. Hikers atop the cliffs can watch the variety of local birds display their natural grace when playing on the updrafts cre-

ated by the steep rock face. Geology buffs can take a trip back to the Tertiary age when the cliffs were first formed. Amongst the small stands of oldgrowth Douglas-fir, the lower elevation grasslands and at Reeves Lake (on the north side of the cliffs), other outdoor recreational opportunities can be enjoyed, including fishing, hiking, and nature study. Parents bringing children on the hike are asked to keep a close watch as the trail winds along the cliff tops. To learn more visit bcparks/explore/parkpgs/enderby_cliffs/


here’s a suggestion: Get in your car and pay a visit to the Starlight Drive-In! Located on Highway 97A, just south of Enderby, it has the largest drive-in screen in North America (6000 square feet). The Starlight Drive-In gives you a superb blend of modern movies with a retro twist. Enjoy watching the latest theater films in the comfort of your own car, surrounded by the beautiful scenery of the North Okanagan. The movie’s soundtrack is broadcasted directly to your radio at 106.9FM so any receiving device can pick it up. The Starlight Drive-In also has the lowest concession prices in British Columbia, with a full range of beverages, candy, popcorn, nachos, hot dogs and fries. You can also eat your snacks seated on a lawn chair next to your car! The scheduled movies run no matter what the weather. Although you cannot spend the night, you can bring your RVs and campers. Whether you’re a movie enthusiast, an outdoor fanatic or have a love of the retro style, the Starlight Drive-In is a must for anyone in the area.



To get a little more out of your walk, stop by the Enderby Museum or the Visitor Info Centre and pick up a walking tour pamphlet. It includes historic information and takes you through town as well as the riverwalk.

Runaway Moon Theatre Tubing

Trying to beat the heat of summer yet still relax in the beautiful outdoors of Enderby? Floating on an inner tube down the river is the perfect family activity! You can experience a relaxing 1-2 hour float down the cool Shuswap River, or your children can enjoy splashing around in the refreshing water. Also, be sure to check out the Enderby Tube Taxi, a local business which provides tube rentals, life jackets, and shuttle service.  Prospective tubers are encouraged to call the Visitor Centre before floating, to find out about possible hazards and float times. From July 1 to August 31, you will see people at hand-launches wearing blue and green “River Ambassador” uniforms; if you have any questions, be sure

to ask these friendly, knowledgeable people for assistance. To find out more about this unique activity, visit



If you’ve already done the Enderby Cliff hiking trail or tried tubing down the river, why not stroll down the Jim Watt Heritage Riverwalk? The riverwalk is one of the city’s bestloved and most-used treasures. The paved path goes from Belvidere Park through Riverside Park. As you go along keep a watch for eagles, herons, osprey, wood ducks and songbirds. Near the ‘island’, chances are you’ll see turtles and beavers.
