WE CARRY 20 DIFFERENT DAVID AUSTIN ROSES!! By Howard Vangool Randolph Westphal stepped forward and pumped my hand vigorously as he introduced himself. His enthusiasm for living and all that it entails was obvious as he gave me a quick run through of his life. He started by exclaiming, “I have bicycled 205,000 kilometres!” in his German accent. As I tried to figure out in my head how many times across Canada and back that would be he continued to talk. He doesn’t bicycle in Australia or Asia or Africa. When I asked why, he told me “it is too hot for the dogs. They are sled dogs you know.” He introduced me to Nanook and Chinook, who were quite comfortably lying on top of the little trailer attached behind the bike. He then jumped right in to tell me about getting run over by a vehicle in Argentina and laying in a ditch for four hours until someone spotted him. His left leg was torn off and his first dog killed by the hit-and-run driver. He had to have 48 operations just to get it to function properly again after the initial reattachment in 1996. A year spent in a

wheelchair and still he has to have a specially-made shoe with a thicker sole to make up for the leg being shorter. He held his left foot up to show me the shoe with the thicker sole. “What makes you so driven to bike so much?” I asked during one of the few pauses in his speech. Randolph’s face showed an element of surprise as he said “Because of the cancer. In 1987 the doctors told me I had six months to live.” He was 29 at the time, diagnosed with cancer of the lymph nodes he has had 28 cancer operations. Now he is 55 and still going strong. As I looked over his two sled dogs Randolph told me about his past winter. He cycled 153 days in below freezing weather and the coldest days was -51ºC. Inwardly I shuddered at the thought of doing anything in -51ºC weather, let alone ride a bicycle. I asked why he continues to push himself so hard and he told me that he wants to inspire people to keep going no matter what happens. That’s the reason why he has bicycled around the world five times and why he continues to push himself to set

an example for others. When asked how he is able to support himself he told me that he has several sponsors that help him out and that places like The Prestige Harbourfront Resort in Salmon Arm put him up for the night and he is grateful for that. His eyes twinkled as he told me that he is hungry now and it is time for him to go eat. I took a few photos and he then jumped on his bike and pedaled away. The next morning as I drove into town I honked my horn as I was driving down Tank Hill and he was pedaling up, and as he gave me a vigorous wave I realized that I had met a truly remarkable man. I began to think of how many people I have known or currently know who really could do with some exposure to Randolph’s positive energy. There certainly is a lesson to be learned from him when almost dying from cancer and getting his leg ripped off by a car doesn’t stop him. He must give so many who learn his story the strength to continue in the face of their own problems. Find out more about Randolph at his website - www.randolph-westphal.de.

Remember loved ones with a memorial brick

Born in 1969, Alan Little was four years old when his family moved to Salmon Arm. He grew up and graduated from Salmon Arm Senior Secondary before moving out into the world, living and working in various places before settling in Prince George, where he worked as a Shift Supervisor in the Lakeland Mills Sawmill. Alan died on April 24, 2012, as the result of an explosion and fire that destroyed the mill on April 23. His mother, Deanna Little (right), along with his three surviving brothers, decided Alan would like a tangible commemorative spot here in Salmon Arm, where his many friends can visit and remember him. Alan’s memorial brick was the first purchased from Shuswap Community Foundation. Each brick purchased for placement in the walkway (at McGuire Lake) includes a donation to the Shuswap Community Foundation Memorial Walkway Fund which will fund community-based charitable programs, projects and services within the area of Salmon Arm.

the lakes” says Johnsen. She and Hull applaud SLIPP for recognizing the need for management, particularly as the levels and diversity of recreational use on and around the lakes increases. “We clearly heard from our survey respondents that the quality of the environment around the lakes is a key component to their recreational experiences they have here. The resilience of the recreational economy depends, in part, on ensuring residents and visitors can enjoy a diversity of high quality experiences.” The draft plan was developed based on a variety of information sources, including a current situation analysis, the recreation intercept survey of over 700 people conducted in 2012, a review of best practices of similar issues from other jurisdictions, and interviews with key informants from a variety of sectors including the houseboat industry and marina operators. These background reports can be accessed

at www.slippbc.com/recreation. The draft plan is based on this information, which was reviewed by the recreation public advisory committee, recreation technical team and representatives of the SLIPP Steering Committee in joint working sessions in early 2013. These joint working sessions involved community representatives, provincial and local governments, First Nations, tourism industry sectors, interest groups and RCMP. The draft plan is available on the SLIPP website for public feedback and comment until September 15, 2013. Three SLIPP open houses will be hosted around the Shuswap in mid-summer, and the content of draft plan will be highlighted to encourage people to provide feedback. Comments will be reviewed in early fall and considered in the creation of the final version of the plan, anticipated to be completed in November 2013.

“Desirable recreation experiences that are safe and sustainable” is one of the three main goals of the publicly developed 2008 SLIPP Strategic Plan. The development of a recreation management plan was the key strategy to achieve this goal. Sydney Johnsen (Peak Planning Associates) and Dr. John Hull, an associate professor at Thompson Rivers University are leading the recreation management planning process. The draft Recreation Management Plan for Shuswap, Mara, Little Shuswap and Adams Lakes is now available for public comment on the SLIPP website www. slippbc.com/draft-rmp-ready-for-publicreview.

COURTESY OF HARBOURFRONT FAMILY CHIROPRACTIC

by Kosha Vaidya

Acupuncture

Acupuncture means literally to puncture with a needle. It has been known about for the last 2500 years and some think it is even older than that. It originated in China and spread quickly to Japan and other Asian countries. In these regions, the health department of government officially recognizes it. In the 17th century it made its way to Europe. Health benefits of acupuncture were doubted in areas where modern medicine was practiced. However, these days acupuncture is more accepted and gaining popularity. Over the years clinical trials about benefits of acupuncture have been conducted and have shown a promising future. It is not clear how acupuncture actually helps but there are various theories. According to WHO (World Health Organization), acupuncture is found to be effective in the following list of conditions: Allergies including hay fever, depression, and gastrointestinal disturbance like biliary colic pain, dysentery and peptic ulcer. It is also helpful for reliving facial pain, migraine, tension and headaches. Low blood pressure (primarily) and hypertension are also included in the list. It was also found to be effective in treating osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and other similar conditions like low back pain, neck and cervical pain, dental pain and shoulder pain. For a more detailed list of how acupuncture helps, please visit www.who.int/ en/ and use the search menu. Acupuncture is great for pain management without the side effects of heavy painkillers. Moreover, a recent study done by the Mayo Clinic suggested that acupuncture might help relieve the symptoms of fibromyalgia, especially the fatigue and anxiety that often comes with the condition. With an experienced acupuncturist and use of new needles each time (for hygiene), there are no major side effects. Minor side effects include slight discomfort during the process and then maybe some pain or bruising later on. It should be remembered that with an inexperienced therapist, a very rare serious complication is possible of puncturing of the lung. The other side effect, which I like the most, is feeling relaxed and calm after acupuncture treatment. Do consult your doctor, and if he or she okays it, then go ahead and pamper yourself.

Traumas, toxins, & thoughts: Part 2

For anyone who may have missed my article last week, I was letting the “science nerd” part of me come out and was summarizing some of the information from my recent continuing education course on pediatric chiropractic. We are currently reviewing the science and research behind Subluxations and nerve interference as it relates to children. Previously I discussed the 3-T’s known as Traumas, Toxins, and Thoughts (physical, chemical, and emotional stresses) which cause subluxation and nervous system interference. Today I will explain the effects subluxation has on our children. We refer to these effects as the 4-D’s of subluxation. I apologize ahead of time because the 4-D’s are a bit scientific, but I hope to explain it in an easily understood manner. It is important to understand that all of the information in this series of articles relates to the significance of a proper functioning nervous system. The function of the nervous system is to perceive the environment and control and coordinate the behaviour of all other cells in the body. If there is interference in the nervous system (subluxation) perception and sensory input will be altered, leading to improper output. The 4-D’s are what children develop when nervous system output is not 100% correct. The first “D” stands for dyskinesia, which literally means distortion or impairment of movement. A subluxation is a misalignment or fixation in the spinal column where the bones lose their proper range of motion. The first and largest cause of dyskinesia is birth trauma. A medical researcher named Dr. Guttman confirmed this in the 1980s when he found 80% of children begin life with a subluxation in their upper neck. The first D alone is enough for all children to be required to have their spine checked by a chiropractor. The second “D” refers to dysafferentation. The afferent part of your nervous system is the sensory part of your nervous system. Nerve pres-

sure from subluxation results in abnormal sensory function. In kids this means the awareness of where their body is positioned in space is “off” – they are clumsy or they frequently trip and fall. Another sensory effect is that children become overly sensitive to irritation and pain. When sensation is “off,” the output of the nervous system will be further distorted. The reason it is so important to avoid (and correct) dyskinesia and dysafferentation is because movement and sensory control account for nearly 90% of your child’s nervous system function! A combination of the 2 above leads to the third “D” which is dysautonomia or over-stimulation of the nervous system. This pushes the child into the “fight or flight” response. When the body shifts into a chronic “stressed” state, all aspects of the child’s health are affected. And the final “D” is dysponesis which by definition is “errors in energy output and organization.” This is seen in kids most commonly as challenges such as autism, ADHD, and hyperactivity, anxiety etc. These kids have the required energy, but it is just being expressed improperly – either too high or too low. The job of a chiropractor is to locate the 4 D’s in a pediatric examination and form a plan of management. When a child begins undergoing care with a series of gentle spinal adjustments, their spine and nervous system begins to function at a much higher level, impacting all aspects of their life and development. Removal of subluxation allows your child to function optimally and process their environment exactly as nature intended (fully & correctly). Give your child the best possible chance to thrive in their environment and express good health. Have them checked by a chiropractor today. The chiropractors at Harbourfront Family Chiropractic have a special interest in chiropractic care for kids and can be reached at (250) 8030224. Results vary from person to person.

designdilemmas by Linda Erlam Woods 101

So the big hint I can give you about wood blinds is this. Imitation wood blinds are heavier, typically, than real wood blinds. The heavier the blind, the more lift cords, or ladders, you need to lift the blind. Lots of lift ladders also gives you an indication of the warp-ability of the slats. Lots of lift ladders also means higher possibilities of damage to cords and lifting mechanisms. Most wood blinds do a terrific job of protecting your privacy, but don’t rely on them for high insulation. Consider their R-value to be equivalent to a single-thickness curtain. The edge gap in these blinds can be as much as 1/2-inch or more. Check the stile width on your window. You may want to consider adding an additional stile to accommodate this light gap. (The stile is the vertical portion of the window sash.) Some companies will warranty their real wood products against warping and fading, and the warranty will also tell you about possible moisture damage. The higher-end woods are suitable for use in bathrooms and kitchens; the off-the shelf woods will probably not be. If you want the look of wood, or need the wood stained to match other wood in the room, the top-of-the-line woods will fit the bill nicely. But expect to pay up to $40 to $50 per square foot. Faux-woods are made of a composite product, usually polymer and sawdust. Some can be stained to resemble a wood finish but these blinds look their best when painted white. The 3-inch slat can create the look of a shutter at a fraction of the price. Off-gassing is to be expected; if you can smell the ‘new’ smell, they are still off-gassing. The higher quality faux-wood blinds can go anywhere, and this suitability is stipulated in the product warranty. Once again, the price variance for these is from very inexpensive off the shelf to custom made that will last a lifetime. Expect to pay $20 to $35 per square foot for quality faux-woods. And then there are the extruded foam fauxwoods. You can spot these on the shelves of the big-box stores. These can be amazingly light in weight and also amazing unstable; check the warranty fine print for suitable usage. They are inexpensive – that is their best feature, but plan on replacing them in a few years. The design guideline: three different woods per room. Think floor, cabinets and table. Or floor, window trim and coffee table. That’s three. Don’t overdo the wood.

Land use survey

Friday, May 31, 2013 Lakeshore News A5

Place your business ad

The Columbia Shuswap Regional District (CSRD) has hired two planning students to do a land-use inventory of Electoral Area ‘C’ - South Shuswap. This land-use inventory will be used as the basis for a new zoning bylaw that will eventually cover the entire Electoral Area. Starting in late May and ending in late August, the students will be driving around the area in a CSRD marked vehicle, collecting data, including taking photos, on the types of uses on each property. The students will be making note only of existing uses, such as residences, commercial businesses, industrial operations and accessory uses (like a home occupation or secondary suite above a garage). This inventory will not take into account any future development plans that property owners may have. If there are long driveways with substantial tree cover, the students may drive down them. The students will not go onto properties with closed gates, ‘no trespassing’ signs, or otherwise perceived to be unwelcome to visitors. The photos obtained will remain confidential and will not be shared with the public. Once the data is gathered, sorted and mapped, CSRD staff will prepare a draft zoning bylaw that will then be presented to the community for review and corrections. If you have any questions or concerns regarding this project, please contact: Jan Thingsted, Planner, at 250-833-5918 or jthingsted@csrd.bc.ca; or Scott Beeching, 250833-5930 or sbeeching@csrd.bc.ca.

Bereavement group

The Shuswap Hospice Society is offering a Parent Bereavement Support Group for parents who are coping with the pain of the loss of a child. The Parent Bereavement Support Group helps parents find their way back to living after experiencing the death of a child. The group addresses the emotional, mental, physical and spiritual challenges that accompany the pain of the death. Concerns of feeling alone, helpless, overwhelmed, angry and any other emotions attached to the loss are discussed. This group offers a safe space for parents to share their experience with other parents and to learn that they are not alone in their pain. It is an opportunity to feel understood, possibly for the first time and to both give support and receive support from other parents. The Support Group is for parents who have lost a child of any age. The jungle is a very scary place when there seems to be no way out. This group can help. Group meetings are free and will be held at the Shuswap Hospice Society office Thursday evenings from 7:00-9:00 p.m. For more information, please call Judy Evans, Program Coordinator, at 250-832-7099.

CommunityCalendar Meetings and events that are free of charge will be listed at no charge in Community Calendar. Dances, bingos, and other paid/ for-profit events are required to pay the normal classified rate.

FEWER CHEMTRAILS FILL OUR SKY THIS YEAR

Our skies have been clear most of the last six months, although many days were cloudy and we couldn’t see the sky. But on Sunday, Feb.10, dozens of chemtrails crisscrossed our sky. Most were very high, but two trails were lower and spread in wide plumes. My eyes went right to them and I became angry. The sky was full of them again on Sun., May 12. We are breathing whatever chemicals are in the contrails. Are they causing Alzheimers? I’ve been writing about chemtrails since 1997 and have many critics, including newspaper staff and members of my own family. I also have many readers who agree with me and want me to keep writing about them. Go to www.YouTube.com and search for chemtrails.

HERALD PARK NEEDS CHANGE ROOMS

TAKE A HANDICAPPED PERSON FOR A HIKE

A TrailRider was on display on May 11 when Downtown Salmon Arm had exhibitors and music on Hudson Ave. as one of the events during Bike Month in May. The TrailRider is a cross between a wheelbarrow and a rickshaw. A person with a disability sits in a lightweight aluminum chair with one large tire underneath and handles at the front and rear for two people to power. It folds easily for storage and transport. It can roll easily over rocky, rough terrain, tree roots and streams. Trying the TrailRider for comfort is Ashley Ladyman. Standing at the back is Brian Sansom, and at right is Phil McIntyre-Paul. Seated in the wheelchair is Debra McDonald who arranged to have the TrailRider brought to Salmon Arm to display. She found it while searching the web. Sam Sullivan, a quadriplegic who is a former Vancouver mayor and recently elected MLA, was the prime mover and shaker in the formation of the TrailRider. www.bcmos.org Locally, Phil McIntyre-Paul would like to see a TrailRider purchased for use in Salmon Arm. The total cost would be $7,000.

STRING ORCHESTRA’S YEAR-END CONCERT

The Shuswap String Orchestra is comprised of violin, viola, cello and string-bass students aged 12 to 92 from several schools and communities in the Shuswap. On Wednesday, June 5 at 7 p.m. at SAS (Sullivan) Theatre enjoy an evening of music at the year-end concert conducted by Jim Howie. There will be a variety of music the orchestra has worked on this year, as well as some special guest appearances.

A Blind Bay man told me that Herald Park has the nicest beach in the entire Shuswap Lake. It has toilet facilities but it needs change rooms. Hundreds of people use the park every day in summer and many enjoy swimming in the lake. When they come out, they have no place to change. Can you offer a quick solution? It’s a government park and the government should provide change rooms, but it may take years.

CHASE FARMERS’ MARKET MOVES TO MAIN STREET

Chase is moving its farmers’ market from the curling rink parking lot to downtown. Beginning today it will be on Shuswap Avenue between Chase and Haldane Streets on Fridays from 3 to 7 p.m. The Chase Sunflower publication advises motorists to move their vehicles off that block before 2:20 p.m. or they will be stuck.

ENDERBY HAS TWO MARKETS THIS YEAR

For many years, Enderby had a market on Fridays in the parking lot next to the railway track. In 2012 it was moved to Cliff Ave., the main street, and became more of a farmers’ market, although some vendors with ‘non-farmer’ items were grandfathered and allowed to stay. There were disadvantages to using the street, the main one being they couldn’t park their vehicle next to their stand. They had to unload it, move it away, and bring it back at the end of the market. Businesses on Cliff also had to adjust to having no parking in front of their place during the market. This year, Enderby has two markets on Friday mornings: one on Cliff Avenue and one in the parking lot next to the railway track which includes miscellaneous items, much like a garage sale. Farmers can choose where to set up. You will want to go to both sales. Hours are: 8:30 a.m. to 12:30

p.m.

FATHER’S DAY ANTIQUES APPRAISAL IN SORRENTO

Sorrento Lions are adding a new event to their annual Father’s Day pancake breakfast. It’s an appraisal of antiques. (Not the old man!) Both are at Sorrento Memorial Hall across from the elementary school on Sunday, June 16. The pancake breakfast is from 8 to 11 a.m., by donation. The antiques appraisal event is from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. with an entrance fee of $3 for one item and $5 for three items. You will get an unofficial value for your items such as watches, clocks, small furniture, militaria, jewelry and misc. items.

SEE AN ARENA FULL OF QUILTS

The Shuswap Quilter’s Guild will have its 20th anniversary show featuring 250 quilts on Friday, June 7 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. at Shaw Centre, the arena across the highway from Askew’s Uptown Store. Admission is $5, free under 12 years.

Foreigners are filling vacancies, with people from the Philippines, India and Mexico staffing fast-food places. Many hotels, bars, convenience stores and gas stations are owned by Korean investment companies. Chinese investment companies are buying farmland and leasing it back to farmers. A Hutterite colony from Alberta recently bought 20,000 acres about an hour from Yorkton.

WASP SPRAY IS BETTER THAN PEPPER SPRAY

To keep a robber or animal away, use wasp spray because it can shoot up to 20 feet away and is a lot more accurate. It temporarily blinds an attacker. The person needs to get to a hospital for an antidote. Pepper spray is less effective because you have to get close to the attacker or robber, who could overpower you. Keep a can of wasp spray in the office or at home for protection. It doesn’t attract attention from people like a can of pepper spray. sallys1@telus.net • 250-832-4831

Letters to the Editor BC voters aparently undecided right up to election day

During the past few weeks, BC politics were highly volatile, defying political science. It was quite remarkable that so many people were unable to make up their political minds until shortly before the polls closed. It was more astonishing that some folks apparently changed their affiliations several times during the election campaign, shattering pollster predictions. A voter’s indecisiveness is a seasoned politician’s delight.

Letters to the Editor

Don’t condemn all based on harm done by few

[Re Thos. Crowley’s letter in the May 24/13 issue of Lakeshore News] It was interesting to read Professor Crowley’s views. Evolution is seen in areas such as plant and animal breeding to create new or improved varieties. Often when intelligent guidance is removed, we see devolution too. Even the mechanics of evolution have evolved over the last century and a half. Sadly, there are many examples of so called “Christian intolerance” throughout history even though they go directly against the teachings of Jesus. Examples over the last 100 years have shown the intolerance of atheists, such as Joseph Stalin, Adolf Hitler, Pol Pot, and Kim II Sung. Christian missionaries have been intrusive where the burning of widows at a husband’s funeral or killing girl babies were part of a peoples’ cultural heritage. I know of two intrusive examples in the Churches of Christ. One is the Morse family who, for over 80 years, have worked in

southern China, Burma, and Thailand. Along with Christianity, they have brought rights for women, economic improvements, health, and education. The second is Sir Reginald S. Garfield Todd, a missionary from New Zealand in the 1930’s, who eventually became prime minister of Southern Rhodesia in the 1950’s. His government soon fell over his plans to bring the black people into the political process, but he was appointed to the senate in Zimbabwe when majority rule came. While many missionaries over the years have done a good work, there are examples of those who through ignorance or improper motives did harm; however, we do not condemn all scientists because of the harm done by a few (e.g. geneticists during the Nazi German era). Reading Leviticus 11 gives us a list of dietary laws of the Hebrew people that were in effect until the Christian era. Some of these were based on hygienic factors while others seem to be marks of separation of the Israelites from the

nations around them. The King James translation uses the word “abomination.” The Hebrew word includes the meaning of detestable, abominable, and unclean. The Israelite reader would understand the camel, for example as unclean to eat (Leviticus 11:4) but a very fine animal otherwise (Job1:3). The first chapter of Genesis describes God’s creation as “very good.” I would recommend the New American Standard translation of the Bible. While its reading level is higher than many modern translations, it is a very accurate literal translation. There was a recent interview with Dr. Nobie Stone, an astrophysicist who has been mission scientist for two shuttle flights and has had experiments on eight space missions. Once an agnostic, he now states, “My personal view is that God is the architect, creator, and sustainer of all nature.” Doug Kendig, elder, Salmon Arm Church of Christ, Tappen

Bible provides accurate account of earth history

[Re Thos. Crowley’s letter in the May 24/13 issue of Lakeshore News] Enlightened? Using the same old generalized rhetoric doesn’t show scientific enlightenment but the repetition does help keep the faithful believing. As a degreed chemist told my son, the untruths and inaccuracies are good enough to tell the general public to keep them believing in evolution but we, the ‘’educated elite,’ know how it really works. The main stumbling block seems to be the age of the earth and its pillar is the radioisotope dating. But these dating techniques have deep and fundamental problems. The frustration with radiometric dating’s arbitrary results caused one scientist to write in the ‘Anthropological Journal of Canada’ {1981) that, “There are gross discrepancies, the chronology is uneven and relative, and the accepted dates are actually selected dates. This whole blessed thing is nothing but 13th century alchemy and it all depends on which funny paper you read.” To include C-14, which has a half-life of 5730 years and so can only yield dates in the thousands of years as support for a 4.6 billion year earth, is either a lack or misuse

of knowledge. Diamonds are considered as some of the oldest rocks formed deep in the earth and they contain C-14. The half life of the earth’s magnetic field is 1400 years. Carried back to 10,000 years the earth would have the magnetism equivalent to a black hole. Mutations are almost entirely detrimental to the organism. Scientists have calculated that the rate of mutations in humans would make us extinct in 100,000 years. And fossils?! Since Mary Schweitzer’s discovery of red blood cells in dinosaur fossils there has been much more tissue found. Sifting sand for the faith in evolution. And research ‘science fraud’ to help get the stars out of your eyes. Points 2 and 3 are not even arguments. 4. Become biblically literate before attempting to make an argument from it. It shows. 5. You are also historically inaccurate in some points. Where there has been true intolerance, the Christian believer recognizes it as inconsistent with Christian faith and character. The faith philosophy underlying evolution doesn’t rationally recognize any morality, so any wrong can be

The ridiculous arguments between creationists and evolutionists are asinine to say the least. It is not where we came from that matters. What does matter is where we are going and how lost we have become in our human arrogance. Creationists often ascribe to God human ideas, values, judge-

ments, emotions, and behaviour. The Bible clearly states that we were made in God’s image, not the other way around. Any honest scientist will admit that the more we learn, the less we know. The continuous destruction of the natural environment, which is our life support system, is scientific proof that we are mind-bogglingly

Created to evolve

justified. We have to be careful in what we declare to be facts. God does say when He made the earth. He gives us genealogies, life spans and figures that the simplest math can solve. God does say how He created, “He spoke and it was done; He commanded and it stood fast.” (Psalm 33:9) also Gen. 1. The days of creation are described in the most basic of arithmetical equations – one evening plus one morning equals one day. There is not a more clear and definite way in any language that God could have said this to us. If it is unacceptable to you then the “facts” declared are just an interpretation and it is yours. Jesus quoted the book of Genesis many times, treating it as actual history. Is He not the “Word” of John chapter 1, the Word that was there when the worlds were spoken into existence? If you don’t have the biblical Jesus, what happens to biblical Christianity? It is gone. But in the Bible we do have a clear and accurate account of earth history and of Jesus, the “one name under heaven given among men whereby we must be saved.” Lance Stoney, Salmon Arm

ignorant. Instead of arguing back and forth about human origins, why don’t these apparently intelligent people focus their time and energy on where we are now? Thank God that we were created to evolve into an intelligent species. Hopefully someday we’ll get there. Kalene Bourque, Salmon Arm

RESP refresher

Last week we told you about $1,200 of “free” money the BC government was giving to kids who have a registered education saving plan (RESP). This week we are going to remind how RESPs work and how the federal government will also give you “free” money for your plan. So how do RESPs work? Here is an overview: • Parents, grandparents, or anyone else can create and contribute to a child’s RESP. In fact, this is a great gift idea for birthdays or Christmas instead of a cheap toy. Your child or grandchild will probably give you a funny look, but they will get over it and learn to appreciate it later in life. • The biggest benefit to the RESP is the “free” money the federal government throws in when you contribute some of your own. This is called the Canada Education Savings Grant (CESG). For every dollar you contribute, the CESG adds 20% to a maximum of $500 per year, per child, until the child reaches age 17. For example, to maximize the grant in a given year you would need to make a contribution of $2,500 to receive the maximum basic grant of $500. If you miss a year or two of contributions, the government allows you to make it up with an RESP contribution of up to $5,000 in a given year entitling you to a basic grant of $1,000. • If your family net income is lower than ~$87,000, you can qualify for

additional CESG. The additional CESG is 10% of the first $500 if your net family income is between ~$43,500 and ~$87,000. If it is below ~$43,500 then you get an additional 20% on the first $500 contributed annually. More “free” money! • Contributions for an RESP are subject to a lifetime maximum CESG of $7,200 per child. • Unlike RRSPs, RESP contributions are not tax-deductible. However, investment income and gains generated within the RESP are allowed to grow on a tax-deferred basis; meaning it is taxable, but not until the income is withdrawn. • When RESP funds are used for post-secondary education costs, the income portion earned will be included in your child’s taxable income. Most students don’t usually have much income and will be eligible for the tuition and education tax credits so they likely will pay little or no tax. • If your child doesn’t pursue post-secondary studies, the income and growth can be rolled over taxfree into your RRSP or a spousal RRSP, provided that contribution room is available. The CESG portion of the funds must be returned to the government. In summary, when the government is giving out “free” money or perhaps I should say a refund of all the taxes we pay; you want to take advantage of it.

A day to learn

ILearn Street is a one-day event taking place at the Salmon Arm Fairgrounds on Sunday, June 9 from 1:00–5:00 p.m. ILearn Street provides the opportunity for children and youth to experience, imagine, and actively participate in various learning opportunities through fun, interesting, innovative, and interactive methods with various institutions in the community. Its goal is to unite and inspire a desire and love of exploration and learning in each participant. This project is based on a voluntary service and is initiated by the Shuswap Eagles Pathfinders Club, a non-profit organization whose main area of activity focuses on the education of children; to encourage respect for nature; respect for themselves and others; and to broaden their knowledge in various areas.

Cops, game wardens, and gun powder

A10 Friday, May 31, 2013 Lakeshore News

It was a sunny and warm spring school break day, as us kids rode our bikes from Armstrong south towards Otter Lake. The three of us were school chums, all of 12/13 years old, and full of mischief. Don’t know if there were otters once at this large marshy lake, but there were huge flocks of geese and many varieties of ducks, like teal, goldeneye, mallards, and even pintail. They were in for a noisy surprise, as Nicky Vandenborre had made a cannon on wheels, from a shotgun barrel, bolt-plugged end, and full of black powder, paper wadding, and a grapeshot made of chopped nails/nuts/solder. This was to be the beginning of making homemade musket pistols, with sawed off 4-10 barrels, wooden handles, and match heads in the powder hole. (Many are still on display at the R.C.M.P. museum at Depot in Regina.) We liked to camp, kid fashion, with a couple cans of beans, water, light sleeping bags, and garden trowels,

digging arrow, and spearheads, and scrapers; from beautiful tiny obsidian bird points, to finely chipped flint hunting points. We dug up, or walked through Billy Keen’s garden, across the lake too, with his permission. Bored with this, Nicky decided it was time for some action. We set the cannon up overlooking the lake. We touched ‘er off with smoke and flame, as it bounced back into the trees. Hundreds of waterfowl suddenly took flight. And lo and behold, It wasn’t long before a green station wagon slowed to a stop off Otter Lake Road, and a guy in a green uniform emerged. With cans of arrowheads, flint, and cannon, we watched as the local game warden began the trip through heavy marsh and cattails, trying to cross the north end of the lake. Waders and all, he was soon bogged down in black muck. Mr. Scott, who owned property nearby, probably tipped off the warden, named Alan Frisby. We continued to build muskets in

Fernie, at Nicky’s dad’s shop, to the point of self-cocking models, that would shoot marbles through a steel drum. Herb Bannister, who Dad knew well, had a cabin back in the bush off Stepney Road. It was there that we had found some sweaty old 40% stumping powder and blasting caps, but no black tar fuse. Now it was November, and with musket pistols under heavy coats, and the sticks of powder, we pedaled our bikes off to Irish Creek near O’Keefe Ranch, to prospect for gold. Setting a charge of three wrapped sticks together under a frozen overhang above the creek, we lit a twisted-up piece of newspaper. Nothing happened. Neil, one of our group, decided to check, just as the sucker blew! He carried fine particles of sand and blue powder embedded in his forehead for years. It wasn’t long after that, the local constabulary was onto us, and went from house to house collecting our small arsenal, including the cannon. It had been a lot of fun, except that we had used metal tamping rods instead of wood. Corporal Wood advised us that we could have been seriously injured. We all appeared before Armstrong’s magistrate at the time, scared stiff! Back then, cans of black pow-

der were very c h e a p . Stumping powder was commonly used by farmers to blow stumps in clearing land. This reminds me, of two old Swedes near Lumby, years ago, with their stumping powder sticks. One owned a puppy, who followed Ollie around all the time. On this day, Sven and O l l i e decided to blow up a big stump near the farmhouse. They put the pup in the basement, and proceeded down the field to the big stump, with powder and a heavy metal bar, to make a hole. Job finished, they wrapped six sticks, dug in the fuse, and lit the long black tarred fuse. Just then the puppy got loose and trotted down the field to Ollie. Ollie started to scream. “Puppy, puppy go home! Puppy go home!. Go home, you Son of a B__,” just as she blew. They didn’t find the dog for two days. Never mess with gun powder or dynamite, less you know what you’re doin’!

Here and there in the Shuswap

Launching the 16 ft Starcraft down at the Canoe Beach boat ramp last week, my partner Earl

and I were surprised and delighted to see a couple of young folks there, checking for invasive species on boats coming and going from Shuswap Lake. Their questionnaire involved information on our activities, and lakes we recently fished, as well as cleaning our boat. They also checked the parts of the motor and transom for aquatic weeds, zebra and quagga mussels. They will be stationed at 10 locations, handing out information and educating boaters on the dangers and ramifications of spreading mussels, as well as Didymo (‘rock snot’), Eurasian milfoil, parrotfeather, and other invasive aquatic weeds. www. bcinvasives.ca Fun Day & BBQ: The Salmon Arm Fish and Game Club (trap division) will be holding a trap shooting, fun event on Saturday, June 8th at the club grounds, starting at 10 a.m. and going till 5 p.m. with the BBQ starting at 5. Admission is $5 per person. The guys now have trap and sporting clays with a new 5 stand for a great shoot (12 free targets). Club members and guests are welcome. Bring your shotgun and shells for a lot of fun!

Good response to quality-of-life survey

The Regional Quality of Life Survey opened on May 10, 2013 and there has been a strong response by North Okanagan residents. After two weeks, over 400 surveys have been received and many more are expected. There is much interest in the results of the survey by many organizations and local governments throughout the North Okanagan. All residents who complete the survey will be entered into a draw to win an iPod Nano or a $200.00 gift card, as well as a chance to win one of ten $25 gift

cards from the store of their choice. To be eligible, residents must submit surveys before 4:30 p.m. on June 7, 2013. Winners will be announced on June 30, 2013. The survey will be one of many pieces of information collected by the Regional District to evaluate the effectiveness of the Regional Growth Strategy and assist identifying regional priorities. The Regional District plans to repeat this survey in future years to gauge progress on improving the quality of life in the region and Regional Growth

Strategy implementation. The survey can be completed online at www.rdno.ca/qols or paper copies will be available at the Regional District office, municipal offices and local Okanagan Regional Library branches. Several workshops will be held in June that will invite residents to take part in an interactive quality of life survey with real-time polling and discussion, so check the RDNO website (www.rdno.ca) often for events. For further information, please call 250-550-3750.

Rainfall has eased through the region over the weekend and the River Forecast Centre ended a High Streamflow Advisory on May 24 for the Thompson Region, including the Salmon River. Most rivers in the area have reached their peak levels and are expected to continue to drop. The upper low weather system which hit the region last week has dissipated and forecasted weather for the remainder of the week is for a gradual dry and warming trend. Weather patterns

are still unsettled and localized areas may receive sporadic periods of rain of 2 to 3mm. Water Stewardship reports that the snow pack is melting satisfactorily at approximately 20mm per day and will continue to do so provided the area does not receive heavy precipitation. Lake level for Shuswap Lake is reported at 347.92 metres and will peak within the next 2 to 3 week window at 348.22 metres subject to adverse weather. The peak level for Shuswap Lake is estimated to be 1 metre lower than

last year’s peak level. As the Shuswap Area transitions from spring weather to hot, dry summer days, the Shuswap Emergency Program reminds everyone to be prepared. Take time with your family to refresh the items in your Grab and Go Bag, exchange winter clothing with summer clothing, check batteries and update contact information. Don’t have a Grab and Go Bag?

Fall Fair happenings The Salmon Arm and Shuswap Lake Agricultural Association recently held a special meeting to approve and adopt a new Constitution and Bylaws for the Association. Also at the special meeting the members agreed to sell the rodeo chutes. These chutes are well made of heavy pipe and are available to any interested party. To view these chutes please contact the general manager. B.C. Hydro has recently installed a new platform pole on the south fairgrounds for the osprey. The Canada Geese took over the old osprey nest and the osprey decided to build their new nest on the hydro poles. It was quite an interesting time for BC Hydro to carefully lift the nest including the eggs over to the new location. The female osprey quickly relocated and was content with the new home. The Association and the Southern Interior Dressage Association purchased new portable horse stalls that were installed in the main barn. These are secure metal stalls that will be used for the many equestrian events held at the fairgrounds each summer. The Association will be replacing the old horse barns with a new multipurpose pole building in the near future. Recently the Lottery Corporation

announced the acceptance of our application for a grant towards the cost of entertainment at the fair and a portion of the tractor purchase. Upcoming events that will be held on the fairgrounds in June are: The Shuswap Eagle Pathfinders of the Seventh Day Adventist Church will be holding their ‘iLearn Street’ event on June 9th. The Society For Creative Anachronism will stage the first Medieval Festival at the fairgrounds from June 21st to 23rd. The North Okanagan 4-H Beef Club are scheduled to hold their annual event from June 30th to July 1st. The SASCU Indoor Memorial Sports Complex is available for summer rentals by the day or week. For information about the Association please contact the general manager, Dan Brock, at 250-8320442. The Salmon Arm fair prize books will be available very soon; however, information is also on the website at salmonarmfair.com. When you are planning your garden, consider the many classes that you could enter in the flower or vegetable sections. For Salmon Arm Fair information please contact Kelly Weightman at the above phone number.

ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT Shred Kelly to play Malakwa Harry Manx joins festival lineup ‘Stoke Folk’ band part of Routes and Blues program

Shred Kelly is a formulation of friends and foot stomping good times born in the East Kootenays. Hailing from the town of Fernie, the five-piece band was recently nominated for four 2013 Kootenay Music Awards - Artists of the Year, Song of the Year (The Bear), Best Folk/Country, and Best Live Act. No stranger to these awards, the band took home Artists of the Year in 2012. The group was also announced as one of the top 5 for the K96 Emerging Artist Program through MusicBC. While their gritty and fun 2010 album ‘Goodbye July’ still resonates strongly with boot slappin’ slacker anthems including ‘I Hate Work’ and ‘Ghost Inside My Head,’ their 2012 LP ‘In The Hills’ took the mountain string band and added a cup of electric shock, belting out stories of small-town love

and tragedy. Continuously building their popularity on the festival circuit with previous performances at Ottawa Bluesfest, Salmon Arm Roots and Blues Festival, and Wapiti to name a few, Shred Kelly is turning banjo doubters into sweaty indie folk rock believers on the dance floor, one town at a time. The group will embark on a full Canadian tour this summer, culminating at the end of August for the Robson Valley Music Festival in Dunster, BC. Locally, they will be playing in Revelstoke on Friday, June 21st (venue TBD); Malakwa on Friday, August 2nd for the Routes and Blues outreach performance; and Kelowna on August 7th; venue TBD. Visit their website http://shredkelly. com/ for more information.

“Mysticssippi” blues man Harry Manx has spent years fusing eastern and western musical traditions with the blues. Switching effortlessly between conventional guitars, harmonica, banjo and the Mohan Veena “creating musical short stories that wed the Blues with the depth of classical Indian ragas.” Manx is a prolific artist, releasing 12 albums in a 12 year span with no signs of stopping. He has received seven Maple Blues Awards, six Juno nominations, CBC Radio’s ‘Great Canadian Blues Award’ & received yet another Juno nomination in 2010 for ‘Blues Album of the Year’ for his release “Bread and Buddha.” Born on the Isle of

Man, Manx immigrated to Ontario with his parents when he was a child. Harry forged his distinctive style by studying at the feet of masters. During his formative years, he worked as a sound man in the wellknown El Mocambo blues club in Toronto and later engaged in a rigorous tutelage with Vishwa Mohan Bhatt in India. Bhatt was the inventor of the 20-stringed Mohan Veena, which has become Harry’s signature instrument. Manx’s time in India imbued his music with an intangible spiritual quality. “A song reveals who you are, it’s the vehicle for your message, your inspirational ideas or your story,” explains Manx, “Like many people I’m interested in my own development as a person and that’s represented in my songs. I’m searching for truth through art and spirituality. My songs are a synthesis of everything I’ve absorbed, all my experiences and I share that. I’m glad that it means something to people.” Harry’s new CD “Om Suite Ohm” is now available and is the first CD to feature his ‘Bollywood style’ electric slide techniques. He is joined by a fantastic group of musicians on the album playing Indian, African and western style instruments. This unique & compelling musician will be joining a fantastic lineup of artists this year at the 21st Annual Roots and Blues Festival - www.rootsandblues.ca.

Creative Chaos features local vendors and more

Things are in chaos for two Salmon Arm residents – ‘creative chaos,’ that is. Among the vendors at next weekend’s Creative Chaos will be Salmon Arm residents Rebecca and Sonia Spooner. Owners of Spooner Sisters Designs, these two sew up some special items for babies and moms; such as baby bibs, baby aprons, burp cloths, baby blankets, nursing covers, crayon rolls–they seem to do it all. Their talents are not limited to sewing; they crochet a variety of items as well. As a major food bank fundraiser, in 2012 Creative Chaos raised 124 boxes of food and over $4,500 in cash donations and bottle returns. The Creative

Chaos Society also distributes scholarships to four deserving Vernon students pursuing their education in the arts. Show hours are Friday, June 7th, 10-9; Saturday, June 8th, 10-6; and Sunday, June 9th, 10-4. Admission is free but a non-perishable food item for the Vernon Food Bank is greatly appreciated.

ble slightly. Stir in 1 cup 1% (or thicker) milk and 1 tbsp. lemon juice (vinegar or wine) and simmer for one minute. Here’s the trick: Remove the pot from the stove and add 1 cup shredded cheese, stir until melted. Pour over broccoli, cauliflower, potatoes, French fries or nacho chips. Did you know? In the past, cheese was used as money; until the late 19th century some people paid their rent with cheese. It takes 10 litres of milk to make 1 kg of cheese. Dear Reena, I have one of your Household Solutions books but can’t find a solution to my problem. I have a coffee peculator and one time forgot to put the water in and plugged it in. I had put the coffee in the tray and I noticed after 5 minutes that it wasn’t perking and then realized the water was missing. I washed it with mild soap as I usually do plus vinegar. Today there is still a kind of burnt taste especially in the last half cup. Anything else I should do or will it go away eventually? Many thanks, Cecilia Dear Cecilia, Instead of washing the percolator with vinegar, run vinegar through the coffee maker (as if you were making a pot of coffee) to give the entire machine a fabulous cleaning. The taste will soon be back to normal! Hi Reena, My condo was painted 9 days ago. On the kitchen floor I noticed a whole bunch of pink stuff; one would think the painter spilt pink cream soda all over the floor. I wiped it up, but when I asked the painter what it was, he said the marks came from my brand new stove. Either the wheels were sprayed with a solution or the stove plug in is leaking. Last night I noticed a pink mark on the linoleum near my kitchen table. I tried to remove it with Vim, but no such luck. Any other suggestions to try and

By Reena Nerbas remove this 9-day-old mark? Please advise. Shannon Dear Shannon, I have never heard of an appliance leaking pink solution onto flooring. So I talked with an appliance repair person and he said that if you had a gas stove installed, the gas person would put a liquid onto the line to test if any gas is leaking from the pipes. Normally the liquid is something as simple as dish soap and water. Other than that, the appliance repair expert had never heard of a pink liquid leaking from a stove. And if the pink dripped from the wheels, wouldn’t there be a line of pink across your floor instead of drips? Scrub the floor with either Oxyclean or a bar of Sunlight laundry soap (just in case it is primer or paint). Hi Reena, When the wind blows a certain way, my wood stove stinks! I am not talking about while I am using it; I am speaking about months after we have stopped using it. Why does it stink? Emily Dear Emily, Like everything else in our homes, maintenance is required for greatest and safest results. Take some time to clean out your stove. Remove ashes and dispose of them into a metal container with a lid. Never place ashes in with your regular garbage. It is important to keep your wood stove free of creosote to prevent chimney fires.

Hike to Albas Falls

This is a combined Cedar Heights and Gals and Guys Hikers activity open to members and non-members of CHCA. Albas Falls is a must-see natural wonder in our beautiful Shuswap area as there are 5 impressive waterfalls within a kilometre. This is a fairly easy hike but there are a few short steep areas. The hike around the water falls is 3 km and another 2 km from lake to trail head and back. Having walking poles will be an asset. This hike will leave Cedar Heights at 9:00 a.m. as the distance to the starting point is about 100 km. There will be some logistics in organizing the travel so confirm with Gloria by June 9th if you are going and let her know if you can take passengers or if you need a ride. (gloria16@telus.net or 250-675-0036). The road is good for all vehicles but the last 30 km is gravel and there is some washboard. The road is graded regularly.

Dear Reena, My daughter has a new dresser and she doesn’t like the smell of the drawers. They are some type of a particleboard and make her clothes smell. How can she get rid of this smell? Norine Hi Norine, Chemical off-gassing can take up to a year to dissipate. In the meantime, wash drawers with Murphy’s Oil and water or tea tree oil and water. She can put bars of soap inside the drawers or line each drawer with scented shelf paper. Another option is to make a coffee sock. Fill a clean sock with fresh coffee grounds and close the sock with an elastic band. Toss the sock inside the drawer to absorb odours. Or put fabric softener sheets into each drawer. If the smell remains, fill containers of vinegar and place them inside of the drawers to take the odour away. Each container should have a lid with air holes e.g. parmesan cheese shaker to allow the smell to fill the drawer. Dear Reena, There is nothing better than a hot dish topped with melted cheese! Whenever I make cheese sauce, it becomes stringy and the cheese won’t incorporate into the dish without making a clumpy mess. What am I doing wrong? Sincerely, Kathleen Dear Kathleen, As you incorporate the cheese, be sure to stir constantly and keep the stove temperature low (or off) so that the cheese does not heat too quickly. A double boiler is a great helper for making smooth cheese sauces. A little hint, whenever you make cheese sauce, add something acidic to your pot e.g. lemon juice, vinegar or wine. Doing this will break up the molecules and prevent clumping. Here’s a recipe for making yummy cheese sauce. Into a pot (or double boiler), melt 2 tbsp. butter and stir in 2 tbsp. flour to create a roux. After 1 or 2 minutes, the mixture will turn golden brown and bub-

Seniors’ Centres & Halls

After six games of North Okanagan Mens’ Soccer League play, the Salmon Arm Courvas are leading the league with a 5-1 record. On Wednesday, May 22nd, they defeated the second place Vernon Camels 4-2 in a wet and physical match. The Courvas trailed for much of the game but scored three times in the last 20 minutes to pull out the win.

For the season the Courvas have a record of 29 goals for and 8 against. The team has performed well for their new sponsor Pro Active Fitness who has outfitted them with new jerseys and player kits. Ron Stanton, owner of Pro Active Fitness, has supported the club for many years and his generous sponsorship has helped inspire the team to strive for excellence. Photo contributed.

Bike for Your Life registration opens

You are invited to join in the fun of a community bike ride on the scenic back roads of the Shuswap/North Okanagan on Saturday, September 14th starting at 9:00 a.m. from Blackburn Park in Salmon Arm. Event organizers have again included the popular “knock your socks off” scenic and challenging 100K Century Ride with the classic Bike for Your Life 10K, 35K and 75K routes. The Bike For Your Life Tour started in 1998 with the hopes of promoting a healthy lifestyle, family solidarity, and community involvement through a fun cycling event in which all ages and abilities could participate. The four bike routes are designed to be safe and fun. Whether you have never ridden a bike before, or you are an endurance cyclist, join in. Everyone is welcome! This is not a racing event. The emphasis is on participation, rather than time, to make it fun for an individual or family. Enjoy the company of fellow cyclists. Ride with your friends and challenge yourself to ride a route distance you might not

consider doing on your own. The registration fee ($25 for adults, $50 for families, $5 for children 18 and under) includes Aid Station refreshments, a BBQ lunch of DeMille’s and Pedro Gonzales’ roast corn, a BBQ hamburger or veggie burger with all the fixings, a beverage supplied by Askew’s Foods and organic veggies supplied by Wild Flight Farm. You will have a chance to win some great draw prizes including a Specialized road bike supplied by Chris Emel at Ridetech Enterprises, Salmon Arm at the post-ride

CAPRICORN

A friend needs your support more than ever, Capricorn. Go to great lengths to give this person what they need, even if it means rearranging your schedule.

AQUARIUS

An email or other correspondence from a past friend could stir up feelings you weren’t ready to deal with right now, Aquarius. Put this on the back burner until you are ready.

PISCES

Pisces, you are more interested in independence this week than hanging out in large groups. This includes hanging out with your spouse or partner.

ARIES

Don’t make assumptions this week, Aries. You just can’t trust your gut instincts too much right now. It’s better to get all of the facts and act accordingly.

TAURUS

Playing matchmaker isn’t so easy, Taurus. You have to understand when people are compatible and when there just isn’t a spark. Let this one go.

GEMINI

Gemini, you may have to pull back your focus on a problem in order to see it in a new light. Take some time away to regroup and then you can come back at full strength.

CANCER

A romantic relationship can be a balancing act, Cancer. You will learn this first hand this week when you have to come to a compromise with your partner.

LEO

Leo, don’t apologize if you feel like you have to go your own way this week. Even when everyone seems to be going in another direction, sometimes you just have to set your own course.

VIRGO

Virgo, while others may not be able to handle the confusion this week, you are fully capable of multi-tasking and making it through unscathed.

LIBRA

Libra, you may feel more emotionally charged this week but you still have to think with your head and not your heart. A financial decision may need to reassessed.

Scorpio, look at a situation with a practical eye. Is this really the best answer for the time being? Although you may be leaning one way, you might want to reconsider.

SAGITTARIUS

Sagittarius, you need to get work done this week and that can’t happen when you are continually distracted. You might have to nip this one in the bud -- quickly.

Carol-Lynn Sandra Davidson February 22, 1942 - May 24, 2013 In the springtime of her life and on the day the Irises bloomed, God chose to recruit a new angel. Our wife, mom, sister and friend Carol-Lynn Sandra Davidson passed quickly through Heaven’s Gate on 24 May 2013, to help God paint the skies. Carol-Lynn, oldest of three daughters born to Norm and Doris Kershaw, entered life 22  February 1942 in Toronto, ON.  At age 4, her family moved west  to Edmonton, AB.  In grade 12, the Kershaws moved to Richmond, BC where she met the love of her life, and soon-to-be husband, Jim Davidson. Carol-Lynn and Jim raised their two small children, first in Richmond and finally settled in their own built home in Sicamous, BC. It was in Sicamous that Carol-Lynn started her own enrichment with  Art classes, “letting the chips fall where they may.”  As the  years progressed, she received many artist awards and designations  working in many mediums, but excelling in watercolour.  Eventually,  she even called herself an Artist.  Her works have been juried among the best and have been viewed around the world, including  Australia,  England and in the United States.  Carol-Lynn also shared her  passion, instructing many classes and encouraging all to “keep  their brushes wet.”  Quilting became a hobby and even more  masterpieces were produced. Another move, this one to Watch Lake, BC before Carol-Lynn and Jim finally settled to their own new built home in Armstrong, BC. These moves gave Carol-Lynn the chance to meet and share her hugs and love with many people. Carol-Lynn is survived by her husband of 53 years, Jim; daughter Kathleen  (George); son Ken (Barb); grandchildren Jennifer, Roslyn, Kevin,  Peter and Scott;  her sisters Patricia and Danita (Paul) plus many nieces and nephews. A  church service was held 29 May 2013 at St Andrew’s Presbyterian  Church.  In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to a charity of your choice. The family is contributing to children in a third world country. LOVE YOU LOADS.
