Sunny days are here and it is also the time for spring cleaning and gardening. Gardening is the second most popular physical activity in Canada, and is a positive contributor to an active life as well as to the natural environment. Actually, there are many benefits to gardening as it is a way to keep you physically active. Numerous studies have shown that regular physical activity reduces your risk of heart disease, obesity, high blood pressure, adult-onset diabetes, osteoporosis, stroke, depression and colon cancer. Gardening and yard work contribute to active living and improve one’s endurance, flexibility and strength. The stretches and movements we have to undergo while gardening can help increase and maintain flexibility. Moreover, it is very relaxing. Gardening, including apartment patio flower gardening, can also be therapeutic in treating physical, emotional, cognitive and social changes in the lives of seniors. There’s a whole field of practice called horticultural therapy. Horticultural therapists have discovered that gardening provides a form of emotional expression and release, helping people to socialize with others. The psychological benefits of being outdoors, working in the sunshine and fresh air are also clear. You also get vitamin D from sunshine. However, seniors should be extra careful. As we age, balance and strength lessens. Choose small bags of soil or fertilizer to heavier bags, as heavy lifting is a common cause of back injury. Improvements in gardening tools exist to aid older adults who may have physical limitations. Seniors are also more likely to get muscles sprain, so it is always good to warm up which can be done by carefully stretching the arms, back, neck and leg muscles before you begin. Make sure to have stretch breaks as well. Working in the sun can cause burns and dehydration, so applying sunscreen and drinking lots of fluid is also very important.

Weight training & diabetes

When it comes to recommendations to help reduce your chances of developing type 2 diabetes, the majority of exercise that is promoted is of the aerobic (endurance) type. However, research recently published this past summer in the medical journal Archives of Internal Medicine has found that exercise in the form of weight training is also effective to prevent and treat diabetes. This study looked at over 32,000 men and found those who performed weight training exercises for 2.5 hours per week reduced their risk of developing diabetes by over one third! What was also interesting in the results was the men who included some aerobic exercise (walk/ run) in addition to the weight training program reduced their risks by more than half! How does exercise prevent diabetes? Basically, you can thank your muscles for doing the majority of the work. Lean muscle consumes a lot of glucose (sugar) to stay alive. The more muscle mass you build in your body, the more sugar and calories you burn per minute. The bonus to this process–once you build the lean muscle, you will continue to burn calories even at rest! Another health benefit of exercise is seen immediately following exercise. After burning sugars through exercise, your body refills the “sugar fuel tanks” in your muscles so they will be ready for the next exercise session. Pulling more sugars out of your blood for storage in muscle means less diabetes. The moral of the story is very encouraging. This research confirms once again that majority of the chronic degenerative diseases now seen at near epidemic levels in our society, are preventable through lifestyle. And if you are the type of person who prefers weight lifting over aerobic type exercise, you are still greatly benefitting your health.

Service award Club Fit program begins ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Friday, April 12, 2013 Lakeshore News A5

www.lakeshorenews.bc.ca

At the Annual General Meeting of the Armstrong/Enderby Historical Society held at the Enderby Museum on Sunday, April 7th, Joani Cowan presented Eleanore Bolton a picture of the Enderby Cliffs with engraving on the frame expressing appreciation for Eleanore’s 25 years of service to the historical society as its treasurer. Eleanore was born in Enderby in 1930. Her parents were Ruby and Clifford Lidstone. Her early childhood was spent on their farm in the shadow of the Enderby Cliffs, and her teen years in the heritage house on the corner of Sicamous and Cliff Street that her parents lived in until her mother’s death. In 1951, Eleanore’s marriage took her away to northern BC and Alberta, with 30 years spent in Kamloops, after which she and her husband returned to the North Okanagan and were able to become involved once again in the communities of their youth.

Special Olympics BC is back and in need of athletes, volunteers and coaches. The committee members held their start-up session of the Club Fit program on Monday at South Broadview Elementary. With fifteen athletes participating, the program consists of fun activities and exercises designed to improve conditioning and strength. Nutritional information and mental training is also incorporated. The program runs

HUCUL PRINTING USED CALCULATOR FOR NEW TAXES

On April 1, B.C. dropped the HST, and PEI started using it. I heard an estimate that in a few years all Canada will be using HST. Businesses in B.C. had to program their cash registers away from the harmonized sales tax to federal and provincial sales taxes. I picked up a box of printing at Hucul Printing on Monday, April 1. Bernie took the invoice from the receptionist, crossed out the computer-generated 12 percent HST on the invoice, grabbed a calculator and, with a pen, wrote the five and seven percent taxes.

HOORAY, HELGA DODDS CAN STILL DRIVE

People over 80 are being asked to take tests from DriveAble to learn if their reactions are still sharp. My Jan. 25 column had a picture of Helga Dodds who failed her first test because she never learned how to write in English and she was unable to write in letters the numbers 209 and 4059. Seniors are learning to never give up if DriveAble fails them. Helga retook all three tests and passed them all. Her doctor and the Superintendent of Motor Vehicles said she can drive but must be retested in one year.

WALMART IS OPEN SEVEN TO ELEVEN

JEWELLERY STORE MOVES ACROSS THE HALL

Randolph David McNally stands in front of his new store in Centenoka Park Mall. Randolph David Jewellery opened in the mall in 1992 and is now in a bright new space twice the size of the previous one, located between Staples and Dollar Tree. Two goldsmiths work with Randy; daughter Val McNally and Blake Grant. It’s actually a family business. Randy’s wife Janet runs the Revelstoke store. Look for the local store’s 28th anniversary celebration on May 1.

DOCTORS ARE NOT TAKING PATIENTS’ PHONE CALLS

A press release that was distributed late February by the Canadian Press and published in daily newspapers and on the internet said BC’s doctors will start taking phone calls on April 1st, so I put it in my column. But the system has not been implemented. Doctors are not taking calls from patients. Their offices were getting many calls and frustrating their employees.

SORRENTO’S SIGNS ARE NOT A HOAX

Last week I said the “Prepare to Stop” sign on either approach to Sorrento might be a hoax because I saw no construction. Barry Stokes, president of the Sorrento & Area Community Association, wrote to say the signs warn drivers of an upcoming crosswalk which is not pedestrian controlled. He said the association worked closely with the highways ministry to help Sorrento become a safer community. A new crosswalk was placed where most pedestrians jay walked before. Concrete barricades on the north side of the highway were moved closer to traffic to slow it down while also providing a safe walking path for pedestrians. These initiatives, and the speed reader boards that are used in summer, have made a substantial impact on traffic speed through town.

I drove to Vernon on the evening of April 3 to hear a speaker at Okanagan College, an astrophysicist from the U. of Arizona, mainly to get my brain stretched by a topic I knew nothing about. On my way home I stopped at Walmart to pick up a few things. It was 9:15, people were rushing to fill shelves, and I was afraid the store would be closing shortly. When I asked an employee, I was told the store is open till 11. Really? Yes, she said, 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. seven days a week. Imagine!

MEET AND MINGLE WITH LOCAL PRODUCERS

In nine days, 20 local farmers and businesspeople will have interactive stations at an event called Local Food, Farmers and Fun. It is being sponsored by the Food Action Society of the North Okanagan. www.foodaction.ca. A few of the 20 presenters are Afke Zonderland of Rawsome, Wild Flight Farm, David Colombe of Table 24, and Shuswap Coffee Co. It is being hosted by Fieldstone Organics, 4851 Schubert Rd., Armstrong on Sunday, April 21, 1 to 4 p.m. Free admission. To get there, take Deep Creek Road off Highway 97B and look for signs when you reach Hullcar Road.

FUNDRAISER FOR UNITED CHURCH’S GRAND PIANO

The Izik-Dzurko children, both pianists on their way to the Provincial competition this June, will give a concert on Sunday, April 21 at 1 p.m. at First United Church. Admission is by donation with proceeds going to the piano restoration fund. The 25-year-old grand piano has suffered some wear and tear. It needs new hammers, and work on its action to maintain its lovely tone quality and responsiveness. Jaeden is 13 and Aria is 11. Jaeden studies with Marjorie Duncan of Salmon Arm. His father, David, was his first teacher and he still teaches Aria. Both youngsters also study with Arne Sahlén of Vernon. Since both children will be performing concerto excerpts as part of the concert, their father and Joseph Dansereau, a recent SAS grad from Blind Bay who has his ARCT diploma, will also be performing as accompanists.

While I realize that the peccadillos of the Liberals would require far more than one page of newsprint to enumerate, the continued upping the ante with regards to attack ads by the BC Liberals and their allies raises one fundamental question: Do the Liberals really want this election to be fought on the basis of trustworthiness and honesty?

What’s this, I thought when I received a window envelope in the mail from TReO, Easy, Electronic, Fast. I opened it and saw that it was for $3. It had an invoice number and my correct name and number. Turning it over, I saw that it was for crossing the Port Mann Bridge in February. It’s automatic. A camera read my car’s licence plate, had the time and date when I was going into Vancouver and leaving it, and that I had a small car. The charge was $1.50 each way.

Letters to the Editor

Happy with 122nd place Sick and tired of flat rate repair rates

Sally, don’t be so quick to label SmartCentres opponents as somehow being the sole cause of delay, for the development of Salmon Arm. Fortunately our SmartCentres project is going forward, and will provide many needed jobs. But more importantly, it will also provide competition, which this community has successfully stymied for years. Many other major projects and business opportunities have been proposed for Salmon Arm, over the past four decades, but were soundly rejected. Rather, past city councils chose to shelter the business interests of those approximate half dozen families that own Salmon Arm, ensuring for them controlled growth with resulting higher prices, through policies of protectionism and lack of competition. So now we reap, what ‘they’ have sown. For that matter, why is gasoline price fixing still allowed in Salmon Arm (maintaining some of the highest fuel prices in the valley)? Not very attractive for shopping, growth, or tourism! And wasn’t it you, Sally, who pushed for Sturgis North, which left this city with a trail of debt–in some cases, insurmountable for small businesses? But back to your column, why on earth would you ever want us to be rated number one in a publication called ‘Money Magazine’? Try moving to the number one city, Calgary, and see what it is like for a newbee to get a doctor’s appointment, or better still, try to get admitted into hospital’s emergency dept, then try Salmon Arm. How would you like the crime ratings that go with Calgary, Edmonton, Vancouver, or even Kelowna, and what about the price of housing? Ever try to speak to a stranger on the streets of Calgary, or Vancouver? Many of us have lived in these large cities, and I can assure you that being rated 122nd overall is just fine, if not preferable! Ken Smith, Sorrento

Most vehicle dealerships charge you a flat rate for all service & repairs. It’s called a “flat rate” labour fee system for any service or repairs you have done to your vehicle. These rates are based on an industry standard (some use Chilton Manuals) where you are quoted a “flat rate” for the labour to do the job on your vehicle and the “technicians” are paid a portion of their salary based on the time quoted to do the job. As an example, if a repair or service is quoted at four hours, you will be charged the flat rate for the four hours and the technician is paid the time quoted (at his hourly rate), not the shop’s hourly “flat rate.” The dealership receives the difference: for example, if the shop’s flat rate is $110 per hour and the technician receives $25 per hour the repair shop receives the additional $85. If the job doesn’t take as long as quoted, you are still required to pay the full flat rate as quoted (e.g. if the flat rate was quoted 4 hours but the job only takes 2 hours, the customer is charged the full 4 hours). In this case you end up paying double the amount. The repair facility staff will attempt to justify these charges by telling you

Toastmasters’ news

In front of a packed audience from Armstrong, Enderby and the Shuswap, the Salmon Arm Toastmasters Club hosted the Area 33 International Speech and Evaluation Contest last week in Salmon Arm. The big winner was Bruce Singbeil from Mara, who won first place in both contests and will represent the club and area at the Division (Southern Interior) contest at the Holiday Inn in Vernon on Saturday, April 20. Bruce has only been a Toastmaster for over a year and came to Toastmasters to accompany his wife Karen, who acted as contest Toastmaster. Bruce is a natural story teller with an amazing lectern presence. Visit one of our meetings on any Thursday night at 7:30 p.m. in the library of the SAS Sullivan Campus and find out for yourself what Toastmasters can do for you. To end the evening, area governor and contest chair Walter Scheidegger declared Cyril Sukare, former president of the SA Chamber of Commerce, who recently returned to Salmon Arm from Dubai as the incoming area governor. For more information about Toastmasters contact Walter at 250-833-5802 or visit salmonarmtm. com.

their work is performed by trained technicians and if the job takes longer than quoted, the repair facility will absorb the extra time to complete the work at “no cost” to you. Have you ever heard of a dealership or repair facility refunding money because they overcharged you? This has never happened to me and I can assure you it rarely happens to anyone. In summary, it is my opinion these extra charges are akin to usury charged by banks. Further, it is my understanding these charges are not regulated by any agency: the only recourse available to the consumer is to commence legal proceedings after the fact. The only other options are to not do the repairs, or find a facility that only charges you the actual time based on their estimate for the repairs. I suggest that one find a repair facility that provides service & repairs at reasonable rates and to stay away from these rip-off “flat rate” repair facilities. To be quite frank, I am sick and tired of being ripped off by local dealerships that use the flat rate system in their service & repair facilities. B. Campbell, Sorrento

A coincidental cup of tea

A8 Friday, April 12, 2013 Lakeshore News

It began as a casual conversation over a cup of tea on a Saturday afternoon at Bastion Place. It prompted phone calls, letters and emails from Salmon Arm to Holland and ended in the finding of a long-lost connection. Connie Zettergreen, who has been a resident at Bastion for three years, says one of the ladies who was serving tea stopped to chat with her. “She said, ‘Your name sounds Dutch– do you know anybody in Holland?’ I said I knew a couple in Hanglow and she said that was her home in Holland and her daughter lives there. She said, ‘I’ll phone my daughter.’” As it turned out, her daughter lives a block away from the Langvoord family. During World War II, Connie’s husband Arthur had billeted with the Langvoords and they had taken good care of him. Connie and Arthur both grew up in Mara. Arthur, born in 1916, was 13 years older than Connie. They didn’t know each other growing up. Connie moved to Mara from Kamloops with her parents, Harry and Pearl Stephens, while all of her older

1 stRabb

siblings were out working and having families. Her father had been the fire chief in Kamloops for many years and her mother had run a boarding house– Lorne Street Rooms. One of their long-time boarders had told them about a nice property by Mara Lake, and they decided to move.

“We were just like the Beverly Hillbillies,” says Connie laughing, “with the furniture piled on the back of the truck and off to our new life.” There was no running water, no plumbing, and no electricity. They had two pieces of property, a

farm at Mara and some lakefront property at Hummingbird. The farm was hard work but life was idyllic for Connie. She had her chores to do but, for a few years, she didn’t go to school as it was too far a trek, so she read detective books instead. “On Thursdays it was the Armstrong auction sale and we had to go to that to buy a cow or a calf. If she [mom] bought a calf it was coiled up in the back seat and I would hold it until we got home.” Connie remembers their pig named Susie. “One day Susie decided it was time to have a boyfriend. She swam the river and walked a mile to the neighbours. So pigs can swim.” In 1946, Arthur made his way back after the war, coming on the train back to Mara. The train came to a stop. He was home. “We used to go down to the railway every day to see who came on or off the trains. That’s when I first met him – when he got off the train,” says Connie. He wasn’t a bad looking fellow, Connie says with a wide smile. They dated for a year and then they were married. “It was a big wedding–the whole community usually turned up for stuff like that.” They lived in Mara and Arthur worked as a logger/scaler. They had five children: Barry, Brian, Nada, Leta and Derek. Life was good. Connie, who taught herself to play the piano, and Arthur, who played the violin and guitar, formed a group with three other locals and they played

for community events from Grindrod to Ashton Creek. They called themselves the Melody Five. The effects of his wartime experiences never left Arthur completely, says Connie. “If things got bad, or there was something stressful, he pulled into his shell. He’d take off – go into the bedroom with his pen and ink and sketch. That was his way of pulling out.” He did beautiful ink pictures of mountains and streams. He would never really talk about his experiences overseas, but he did talk about the kind family that looked after him. Over the years, they wrote to the Dutch family that was so good to Arthur. The Langvoord children, Jimmy and Hosde, wrote to Zettergreen children. Parcels went back and forth. They would send wooden shoes and chocolates to the Zettergreens and Connie and Arthur would send various items to the Langvoords. Holland was still recovering from the war, so Connie would knit warm socks for the family, or send blankets or other helpful items. Arthur passed away in November 1991. Then, somehow,

the Zettergreens lost touch with their Dutch friends. Time passed and the address was lost. Connie was sorry that the connection had seemingly come to an end. Now, with the help of a friendly

volunteer, the two families are in touch again. They sent pictures of Arthur in his uniform. Connie keeps copies of these pictures by her bed. On the white board by the elevator the names of the residents who are celebrating birthdays for the month are listed. Connie’s name is on the board. Her birthday is April 28th and she’ll be 84 this year. Getting back in touch with Langvoords has already made this a good year. “I’m the luckiest person. I’m really extremely lucky.”

Splatsin to rebuild Enderby’s Super Save Gas

PUBLIC NOTICE 2013 - 2017 Financial Plan The Council of the District of Sicamous invite all interested persons to attend a Meeting to be held on Wednesday, April 17th, 2013 at 5:00 p.m., in Council Chambers, District Office, 446 Main Street, Sicamous, B.C. wherein Council and the District’s Consultant will present the 2013 - 2017 Financial Plan. Public submissions and comments are invited. Copies of the Plan will be available at the Meeting. A second public consultation meeting will be held at the Regular Council Meeting scheduled for Wednesday, April 24th, 2013 at 5:00 p.m., in Council Chambers, to hear public submissions. We look forward to community participation in this annual event.

On November 19th 3:00 a.m., a fire occurred that caused substantial damage to Super Save Gas in Enderby BC. The business has been owned and operated successfully by Splatsin for 30 years and employed 20 plus people each year from the band and local area. In the wake of the devastation a new opportunity has begun. The Splatsin community voted recently to support the building of a new legacy building including space within the new building that will support the opportunity of a franchise to be attached. This legacy building will provide a destination stop, bringing business to the Splatsin community and the City of Enderby, and is anticipated to create approximately 30 to 40 new jobs for the band and surrounding area. This

new opportunity will contribute to the local economy for many years to come and continue to provide excellent customer service to our loyal customers from all over BC. The Splatsin Council and Community are very excited about the new store building and the business and employment opportunities it will bring to Splatsin and their neighbouring communities. “When we built the store and gas bar business 30 years ago we never envisioned how citizens of the surrounding neighbourhoods would support our endeavour,” says Kukpi7 Wayne Christian. “We are thankful for your support and our legacy building will mark a new era of customer service for our customers for the next 30 years and beyond. The

legacy building will truly mark a new beginning for Splatsin, especially for all our youth.” Demolition of the old fire damaged building will begin to allow for the site to be prepared for construction to start on the new store. There is a lot of history and love within the Splatsin community for the 30-year-old log building and sadness for its loss; thus, there will be a private community ceremony to commemorate the building and bring closure to the loss and mark the start of turning the community’s minds to the new opportunities the new building will bring. For more information please contact Kukpi7 Wayne Christian via Executive Secretary at 250838-6496, ext. 233; or Project Manager Grahame Go at 250540-1271.

Come and see a variety of locally-built planes and learn more about radio-controlled aircrafts at this annual show. Hobbyists of all kinds will enjoy the display of over 33 planes including agricultural, seaplanes, commercial carriers, sport and acrobatic planes. There will be a variety of planes that have been built from scratch or made from an ‘almost ready to fly’ kit. More information on the Shuswap Aero Modellers club can be found on their website www. slams.ca. For more information contact the Mall Administration office at 832-0441.

FAMILY PROSPERITY

Financially healthy families build strong communities. The current situation... · Large seasonal-based employment and consequent layoffs cause financial strain on families.

· With one or both parents working out of town, additional pressures are placed on the family unit.

· Financial struggles create challenges to adequately support family activities, reducing opportunities to participate in recreational activities or saving for post-secondary education.

Year-round, full-time employment for families is vital for Shuswap growth and prosperity.

I’m a firm believer in teaching kids the importance of getting a little dirt under their fingernails. In my view, we are doing more damage to kids by allowing them to spend all their time playing video games and eating chips than we are by giving them a little age-appropriate work once in a while. We live on a small acreage so by default we have lots of opportunities for the boys to get a “little dirt under their nails.” The latest opportunity came in the form of picking rocks from our field. As our eleven-year-old was busy that day, I was left with the other three boys to tackle the job. Typically they fill the bucket of our skid steer loader with the rocks, and then take turns driving the loader to dump the rocks on our big rock pile. However, this time the field was muddy so I told them to simply pile the rocks into small mounds in the field which we would collect with the skid steer later. About 10 minutes after I had sent them on their way my wife called me over to “take a look outside.” As I looked outside I noticed our youngest, Nate wearing one of his new white t-shirts and had a backpack strapped to his back. The clean white t-shirt was one issue, but I was curious to know why he was wearing the backpack. As it turns out, Brendan (the junior bean counter) was filling the backpack with rocks. Once the backpack was full, Nate would wander over to the nearest rock pile, dump his load and then go back to his brother for re-loading. You would think the idea was a brilliant strategy of Brendan’s to get out of hard labour except that if you know Nate you’d realize the whole “pack mule” idea was all his doing. Meanwhile my teenager was simply throwing the rocks towards the mini rock piles. In his mind this was working efficiently, but it was hard not to question his methods when the rocks were bouncing all over the place. Besides, he didn’t exactly use restraint when his younger brothers were in the area. So it didn’t take long before rocks were whizzing back and forth at each other. A fourth member of the work crew was Duma the cat. It looked like she was in charge of supervising the whole mess, but to put the blame on her would be a bit too much to expect from a cat. She kept a safe distance back from the whizzing rocks, but followed the boys around nonetheless. Though it was hard not to question the methods, no one got hurt and for the most part they accomplished the task we had given them. So remember it is good for kids to get a “little dirt under their nails,” but you must remember to be specific when giving instructions. Although, I suspect the boys would have thrown rocks and treated each other like pack mules regardless; it’s a lot more fun that way. Just ask Nate!

Capricorn, if you want to get real results this time, change your approach with a person who has been troublesome in the past. You will get the knack of persuasion.

Discuss issues from your past that you have yet to resolve, Aquarius. This is the week to "come clean" with a spouse or romantic partner or someone else close to you.

PISCES

Pisces, do generous things for others, and not only will you feel great, but also you will get an unexpected reward.

ARIES

Aries, you must stand up for what you believe is right, even if it costs you a few friends along the way. It is the price to pay for doing the honorable thing.

TAURUS

Taurus, take a trip this week if it will help you reach your goals. The change of scenery could give you an entirely new perspective on a situation that needs tackling.

RBC’s hiring decisions bad for relations

The Shuswap Settlement Services Society said recently that the news that the Royal Bank of Canada is planning to replace employees with temporary foreign workers makes the task of fostering a welcoming community that embraces immigrants exceedingly difficult. Before an employer can receive approval to employ a temporary foreign worker, they must first obtain a Labour Market Opinion demonstrating that they have advertised the position and that there is no Canadian worker able and willing to fill the positions. “How it is that the RBC is able to hire temporary foreign workers to fill jobs currently filled by Canadians is a question that Immigration Minister Jason Kenny must answer quickly,” says Bernie Desrosiers, president of Shuswap Settlement Services. Shuswap Settlement Services is the lead organization of the Welcoming Communities Program in the Shuswap. The program outcomes are a community that embraces immigrants and has the capacity to integrate newcomers into the community.

According to Desrosiers, there already is a lot of suspicion on the part of many Canadians that foreign workers, who can be pressured to work for less, are being used to depress wages and to bust unions. Furthermore, Aboriginal communities are concerned that underemployed Aboriginal youth, rather than being trained, will remain idle and unable to share in the benefits of any economic recovery. Actions by rogue employers like RBC who, despite making record profits in Canada, demonstrate no sense of obligation towards their employees or their community serve only to strengthen such concerns. “The idea that these companies will try to fatten their bottom line (and executive bonuses) by outsourcing work to foreign sweat factories is disgusting,” says Desrosiers. The University Councils of BC released a study in January predicting the there will be over one million job openings in BC over the next decade; that three quarters of the jobs will require certification; but, only one

third of which, will be filled by immigration. According the report, the tipping point–where the number of jobs available will exceed the number of qualified workers–is only three years away. These will be unsettled times and, if not handled properly, may result in racial intolerance and a fractured community. In a free market economy, resources that are limited command the highest price; so, there is good reason to believe that wages for skilled workers should increase, as should the opportunities for training. In order to have a welcoming community, everyone must be entitled to benefit and the rules surrounding immigration must be clear and applicable to everyone. The executive director of Shuswap Settlement Services, Gudrun Malmqvist–herself, a recent immigrant from Kenya–points out that it’s not the immigrants who get to write the rules. Part of the task of creating a welcoming community is guarding against unscrupulous employers and working to ensure that the workplace and the community come together in supporting the betterment of the whole community.

Honeycomb shades 101

Hunter Douglas introduced honeycomb shades in 1985. To say they caused a stir is an understatement. Really new ideas expressed through really innovative design is rare, and honeycomb shades were both. In cross section, they are shaped–in their purest form–like one cell of a honeycomb. The angles of the surface create air pockets that trap the air. They are insulators against cold air transferring through the window into the room in winter and heat transferring into the room in the summer. Since their first appearance, there are now single, double and even triple honeycomb shades, in cell sizes from 3/8-inch to a whopping 2 inch. Optional reflective backing increases the heat-reflective properties, and an opaque coating on the fabric, applied on the inside of the cell, can create a room-darkening effect. Typically made of polyester, the shade can resemble fabric with weights ranging from that of a delicate sheer all the way to a nubby textured natural. Nothing earth-shaking happened to honeycomb shades until Hunter Douglas introduced the Architella shade in 2010. They added a second honeycomb within the honeycomb, creating three

inner insulating pockets. And this year, they introduced a second inner cell. The first Architella tests aimed to achieve an R-value of 7.7 and more, and the additional pockets have increased this rating by 20 percent. So these are the still the most energy-efficient manufactured window coverings. Consider that up to 25 percent of your heating bill goes directly out your window. These shades do what they say they will do. Honeycomb shades can be mounted inside a widow frame with little clearance, some only need 1 1/2 inches of sill depth for a flush mounting. With several types of lift systems, they are also available as a top-down shade. They can be combined so you actually have 2 shades on one headrail -one sheer for daytime privacy light filtering and one opaque for sun blocking or night privacy. And they can be mounted horizontally, making them perfect for patio doors because they also compress into a very small stack. I was at the introduction of all the new Hunter Douglas offerings last Friday. They are so confident in the Architella shade that they are phasing out all the single-layer cell shades. And they lowered the prices too. Gotta love that!

Place names and their origins shuswapoutdoors by Hank Shelley

A12 Friday, April 12, 2013 Lakeshore News

It was mid fall. Giant cottonwood trees lined the east bank of the Shuswap River at Enderby, that long ago early morn, and appeared as giant silent grey sentinels. The sweet tangy smell of their leaves drifted in the misty fog rising from the deep pool below the old and worn structure of the Howe Truss bridge crossing the river. Perched above, in mid span, sat Uncle Fred Pierce, a Welshman who worked in the coal mines there at age 15, and, in later years, came to BC to be a foreman at the nickel plate mine near Hedley. His passion each fall, pysgodyn, (Welsh for fish), and fishing. Perched beside him, all excited, as a 10-year-old kid I watched in awe the large Chinook salmon rolling on the surface of that deep

www.lakeshorenews.bc.ca

green pool below. As dawn slowly crept over the hills to the east, our rod tips bounced with the rhythm of the silver bright FST spoons he had carefully shaped beforehand. Arriving home later, lugging two large salmon, he spoke Welsh to Eva,

his wife. To many BC residents, a name of a river, mountain, or place, comes from a mix of nationalities, combined with history or origins. To hear Uncle Fred chatter away seemed odd to me, as a kid. The language was lyrical, yet mystifying; such as ‘afal’ for apple, ‘wy’ for egg, ‘caws’ for cheese, ‘llaeth’ for milk, and ‘oen’ for lamb. The winner for word length goes to: llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwlllantysyliogogogoch. (On wallhanging pictured above left) This translates to “St. Mary’s church by the white aspen over the whirlpool and St. Tysillio’s (church) by the red cave.” In contrast, names and places in parts of BC such as Revelstoke,

for example, were rich and homey; named after prospectors, railway pioneers, civic, or government officials. Mt. Begbie (pictured) was named after Mathew Baillie Begbie, Chief Justice of BC. Known as the “hanging judge,” he was an impressive figure at 6’ 4.” He spoke two languages, walked the Cariboo trail, and held court along the way. He was knighted in 1875; and died in Victoria on June 11, 1894. Mount Cartier was named after Sir George Etienne Cartier, (181473) the leading French Canadian champion of Confederation. Columbia River was first discovered by the Spaniards in 1772. In 1792, a Captain, Robert Grey, named the river after his ship “Columbia.” Mount Copeland was named after Ralph Copeland, Sept. 3, 1877– Oct. 22, 1905. Carnes Creek: named after H.C.(Hank) Carnes, a miner during the Big Bend gold rush. The old Death Rapids, is the worst stretch on the Columbia River north of Revelstoke, where,

in 1838, 12 people drowned. Among them was young botanist Robert Wallace, and his bride, a daughter of Governor Simpson of the Hudson’s Bay Co. Kinbasket Lake, the reservoir behind Mica Dam, has this history: Walter Moberly, a government surveyor, left an account of how it became Kinbasket,

Around the Shuswap/Revelstoke

in 1866. His crew crossed the Columbia River where they came upon a small camp of Shuswap Indians. Their headman was ‘Kinbasket.’ They purchased two small canoes made of the bark of spruce. Moberly said Kinbasket was a very good Indian and always reliable. Later, they came to a lake, which Moberly named Kinbasket Lake, much to the delight of the old chief! From 1973-1980, it was called McNaughton Lake, but has since reverted back to the original name. Arrow Lake, in the Kootenays: Natives used to shoot arrows up and onto crevasses in high cliffs there. Wood River; east of Red Rock Harbour, Mica. Fur brigade traders/trappers, carried their supplies along the river, leaving their canoes at Boat Encampment on their way, via the Athabaska Pass.

After visiting the railway museum in Revelstoke, a couple weeks ago, it was a pleasant surprise to once again, walk into Johnny’s Tackle (just under and past the underpass to town), where Johnny’s wife Vera Aura still runs the place (Johnny passed away about nine years ago). There isn’t much in tackle or camping gear she doesn’t stock. It was always a stopping place to get your fishing license, the latest update information, share a chuckle, and pass some relaxing time. Drop in for a visit while in Revelstoke to go fishing in the region! Fishing report: River runoff is coming quickly into Mara and Shuswap Lakes. Salmon fry will be migrating soon. Trolled, cast bucktails, a good bet. Gardom/Skimikin/ Monte(Kokanee)Joyce/White, open and fishing LEH applications are now online. Must be in about May 24. Remember, start treating yourself as if you’re the most important asset you’ll ever have! After all, aren’t you? Have a great weekend!

Dowler, named after a store owner, at Heriot Bay, BC. Woodpecker, south of Prince George, takes its name from an island on the Fraser River. It received the moniker in the old days, when the sound of Chinese workers chopping wood to fuel the river steamers, was likened to the sound of woodpeckers!

Eat your yard!

Spring is here, and many of us are heading outdoors to start growing our own fresh, healthy food, beautiful flowers, and improve our landscape. Gardening is often a constant battle to keep the things you want growing, and to rid yourself of unwanted plants. Permaculture is a philosophy of working with, rather than against nature, mimicking natural systems. This workshop, presented by Shuswap in Transition and taught by Element Eco-Design, will include topics such as growing healthy soil, designing a

NOW OPEN

home garden, and harvesting rainwater. Create your own healthy, abundant haven with a permaculture garden! It takes place Saturday, May 4, 9:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m. at 4851 20 Ave NE. It is hosted by Shuswap in Transition, a community group with a focus on community health, sustainability, and resilience. Please contact shuswapintransition@gmail.com or come to 351 Hudson Ave on Thursday April 18th, between 7–9 p.m. to register. Cost is $75 per person for the day.

STINGING NETTLE SMOOTHIE

foodsalive

by Afke Zonderland

Wild edibles

The first dandelions are faithfully unfolding their tender leaves in our yards. Love them or hate them, these flowering beauties can provide you with a delicious spring tonic. I have run out of frozen kale and have been waiting for fresh spring greens for smoothies and salads. (Much like our horses looking at the green field outside their corral.) Dandelion–both leaves and roots–have been known to aid liver function. Like dandelions, stinging nettles are possibly the kings of edible weeds when you examine their nutritional profile. Compared to spinach, it has 29 times the amount of calcium, 14 times the amount of iron, 8 times the amount of magnesium, and 4 times the amount of potassium. One cup of nettles will provide you with 35% of your daily requirement of manganese. Stinging nettle is beneficial during pregnancy due to its rich mineral value and vitamin K, which guards against excessive bleeding. It is also a good supplement to strengthen the fetus during pregnancy. Stinging nettle tea is used during labour to ease the pains, and will increase milk production in lactating women. Stinging nettle is often recommended for pre-menstrual syndrome because of its toxin-ridding activity. When the liver is sluggish, it processes estrogen slowly, contributing to the high levels that cause or aggravate PMS. The list of health benefits attributed to stinging nettle is far too long to list here. Many trials have tested patients with diseases ranging from arthritis, lung congestion, allergies, kidney stones and many more and found results similar to many prescription drugs without any side effects. Harvest stinging nettles with gloved hands and simply add the stem and leaves to your smoothie. The plant loses its sting to become a wonderful blood builder and liver tonic. Anybody having a patch of pesky nettles, please call because I am going to live dangerously and cultivate a reliable supply of nettles within 50 meters of my blender.

1 to 2 cups of fruit (pears, pineapple or mangoes), nettles, and water. Blend.

The Pink Piston Paddlers are preparing for their 7th season of dragon boating on Shuswap Lake. The breast cancer survivor team paddles under the auspices of SARP, the local Rowing and Paddling Association, and consists of survivors and supporters. This unique team has paddlers from not only Salmon Arm but also Scotch Creek, Chase, Sorrento, Eagle Bay, Sunnybrae and Enderby. Pink Pistons’ mandate is to promote breast cancer awareness, improve fitness and wellness, promote a safe breast cancer network and to compete as a breast cancer team in festivals with carnation ceremonies. Carnation ceremonies are held to recognize women who have gone through breast cancer, those who are currently in treatment and those who have succumbed to the disease. Some of the functions that the team was involved with in 2012 were: SARP Open House, Relay for Life kick-off, Daffodil Tea in Enderby, Enderby’s July 1st parade, Women’s Cancer Awareness Tea held in Salmon Arm, and helping with the Safeway’s

Fundraiser for Breast Cancer research. The team consists of 20 paddlers, a drummer and steersperson; and practice is weekly (or twice a week if there are enough paddlers interested) and runs from May to September. The team plans to attend least two festivals this coming season. The Pink Pistons are currently recruiting new members for the 2013 season. Included in the membership fee is use of the SARP dragon boat and all the equipment needed to paddle. The practices are every Wednesday, meeting at the end of the wharf in Salmon Arm at 6:00 p.m. for a 15 minute warm-up and on the water paddling by 6:30 p.m. If you live out of town there may be carpooling opportunities to the practices if other members live in your area. The first practice is scheduled for May 8th. For more information please contact Betty 250-804-4204, Corinne 250-832-3052, Diane 250-838-6550 (Enderby) or Marg 250-955-2430 (Scotch Creek).

Footsteps for a healthy future

Shuswap Lake Healthcare Auxiliary, in cooperation with Shuswap Hospital Foundation, is planning a fundraiser – Footsteps for the Future of Women’s Health – to be held on Mother’s Day, Sunday May 12th, from 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. at the south end of the fairgrounds. This will be a 2, 5, or 10 km walk/run. All ages are welcome and team participation is encouraged. Registration for the walk is being taken at the Hospital Foundation kiosk in the Mall at Piccadilly (beside Jane’s Restaurant), and you will receive your pledge forms at that time. To encourage family participation, we have family friendly rates available. On arrival, after you have visited the registration tent to drop off your pledges, you may enjoy a selection of baked muffins, fresh fruit and bever-

ages to get you started– all included in your registration fee. This is a family-friendly event with face painting for the young and young-at-heart. There will be music on site to help get you energized and a fitness expert to get everyone warmed up for the walk/ run, whether it’s a 2, 5, or 10 km stretch. When you return from the walk / run you will be treated to a freshly-barbequed hamburger or hotdog. Food will be available for purchase by those who are not registered for the event. Money raised will be used to buy hospital equipment related to women’s health issues as the need for funding arises. For info call Gloria @ (250) 8320481 or Adele @ (250) 832-2247.

CROSSWORD

HOROSCOPES

Dec. 22-Jan. 19

For athlete’s foot, reach for tea tree oil, an extract of the leaves of an Australian tree. It appears to have antiseptic properties and may work as well as or better than over-thecounter antifungal products. Apply a light coating of the oil to affected areas two to three times a day; continue for a week or two after symptoms disappear.

CAPRICORN

Capricorn, if you want to get real results this time, change your approach with a person who has been troublesome in the past. You will get the knack of persuasion.

AQUARIUS

Discuss issues from your past that you have yet to resolve, Aquarius. This is the week to "come clean" with a spouse or romantic partner or someone else close to you.

PISCES

Pisces, do generous things for others, and not only will you feel great, but also you will get an unexpected reward.

ARIES

Aries, you must stand up for what you believe is right, even if it costs you a few friends along the way. It is the price to pay for doing the honorable thing.

TAURUS

Taurus, take a trip this week if it will help you reach your goals. The change of scenery could give you an entirely new perspective on a situation that needs tackling.

GEMINI

Gemini, think about adding some new skills to your resume. It’s not that your job is in turmoil right now, but it always pays to be a step ahead when it comes to your career.

CANCER

Cancer, just because everyone else is making changes doesn’t mean you have to at this time as well. If things are working out, then let them stay as they are for a while.

LEO

Don’t set limits on what you do, Leo. Changes at work mean you may need to fill different roles that require new skills. There’s a good chance you can master them.

VIRGO

Networking comes in all shapes and sizes, Virgo. Attend a fun function to put yourself in touch with new people and lead to encounters that can help your future.

LIBRA

Libra, don’t feel guilty if your opinion differs from others’. If you don’t agree with the consensus, then that is your opinion and your right.

Clean hockey bag

Hello Reena, My son’s hockey bag got cat urine or cat sprays on it... yuck. It has plastic wheels and is quite large so I can’t throw it in the washing machine any suggestions? Thanks a bunch, Karla. No problem Karla, Fill your bathtub with hot water and half cup heavy duty laundry detergent and one cup baking soda. Soak for three hours and rinse with hot water until no traces of detergent remain. Hi Reena, I put foil on the bottom of my new wall oven to catch grease from pork chops, not realizing the heating element is below the surface. Now the tinfoil is melted and “fused” to the bottom. I have tried soaking it, using vinegar and baking soda but to no avail. Any suggestions you may have to restore my oven would be greatly appreciated. Thank you and I love your many solutions for so many things. I always have your books at an arm’s reach. Dear Brian, I am assuming that you are talking about a selfclean oven. While there isn’t any safe way to quickly remove the foil without damaging the porcelain finish of the oven. You can use a plastic scrub pad, some liquid dish soap and a plastic scraper to remove loose pieces, this is best done when the oven is warm (be careful not to burn yourself). When you are wiping out the oven, periodically use a plastic scrub pad and each time more will come off. The great news is that the self-cleaning oven feature will eventually remove the foil; but it may take several cleaning cycles and a bunch of patience. Hi Reena, My husband got bike tire marks on his nice light beige cotton slacks. I know that I could do the wrong thing and make the marks look worse so I need your suggestions. The material tag states Dockers- 60% Cotton and 40% Micropoly Dupont Teflon. Thank- you so much, Beverley Dear Beverley, One of the best products to combat this stain is to scrub the area with a Sunlight laundry soap bar. Wash as usual and repeat until the stain is gone. Be careful not to put the pants into the dryer until the marks are gone. Dear Reena, I purchased some rubber mats for my new car and I can’t get rid of the rubber smell. I’ve scrubbed

By Reena Nerbas them, frozen them, and poured boiling hot water on them and still they smell. Can you help? Thank you, Paula Dear Paula, The problem is not on the exterior of the rubber, what you smell are the chemicals used in making the rubber. You can leave them outside for a few days, wash them with vinegar, tea tree and water or sprinkle them with coffee grounds or wash them in the bathtub with laundry detergent. However, even if the smell leaves for a while it will likely return. If the odor is driving you up the wall it may be in your best interest to purchase or exchange the mats for a different brand. Dear Reena, Can you give me a recipe for homemade dog food? My dog has lots of allergies and therefore I want to be aware of the ingredients. Love your website, Steph Dear Steph, Into a pot combine 8 cups water, two pounds ground turkey, one cup brown rice, one tsp. rosemary and one tsp. basil. Heat, scramble and cook thoroughly. Simmer 20 mins. Add two cups frozen vegetables and cook for 5 mins. Remove from heat, cool and serve. Refrigerate or eat leftovers. Feedback from Reader Who Cares: Hi Reena, A hint for the person who gets cracked skin in the winter. We use Vaseline; I put it on my feet and then put on a pair of socks. My hubby, who sometimes has to work outside, puts it on his hands and then puts on a pair of mini gloves and then mitts. Problem solved in a couple of days. Lynda Fabulous Tips of the Week! • The best way to hammer a small nail into the wall is to use a small comb to hold the nail. • Remove a stuck ring by greasing your finger and ring with butter or oil. Wrap the entire finger with plastic wrap. Pull off the plastic wrap and ring; they should both slide off with ease. Tip: Glass cleaner sprayed onto the area is another trick for removing a stuck ring. I enjoy your questions and tips; keep them coming. Missed a column? Can’t remember a solution?

Robert “Bob” Williams 1925 - 2013

Robert (Bob) Laurence Williams passed away peacefully on Thursday, March 28, 2013 at the Red Deer Regional Hospital, at the age of 87 years, with his loving wife of 61 years, Dorothy, by his side. Bob was born in London, Ontario on November 27, 1925 to Alfred and Cissie Williams. With an army background, Bob joined the Navy at the tender age of 17. At the end of WWII, he went to work for the Hudson’s Bay Company in the North. He met Dorothy in Calgary and they married on February 15, 1952. The North called him again and they moved to Fon du Lac, Saskatchewan with the Hudson’s Bay fur trade. They were blessed with two children: Laurie and Carl. In 1958, the family moved to Dawson City where Bob worked as a mining clerk. It was there that they had another daughter, Jacqueline. Up to 1972, the family moved around the Yukon as Bob worked for Forestry and as a Mining Recorder. They moved to Yellowknife, NWT in 1971 where Bob had accepted a position as Chief Mining Recorder. A few years later, he was promoted to Assistant Director of Non-renewable Resources for the Northwest Territories. They retired to Christina Lake, BC in 1983 and lived in their dream home with further moves to Winfield, BC, Grande Prairie, AB, Salmon Arm, BC, and finally to Red Deer where they made their permanent home. Bob was an avid gardener, a lover of the outdoors and was generous of heart. His penchant for story telling would entertain everyone: even if they had heard it more than once. He loved curling, dancing and always had a solid handshake. Bob never shied away from a challenge – be it panning for gold or trekking up a mountain to check an eagle’s nest. He is survived by his wife, Dorothy, children; Laurie (Russ) of Christina Lake, BC, Carl (Mary Ann) of Yellowknife, NWT, and Jacqui (Darby) of Wembley, AB, grandchildren; Dayna, Brad, Blair, Joe, Cole, Garret, Drew, and Cheryl, and great granddaughter, Abby. Bob is also survived by a sister, Betty Green of Calgary and a brother, Neville (Gerry) of Saskatoon, SK. Robert was predeceased by his mother and father; Cissie and Alfred Williams, a brother, Eric, and sisters; Doris and Edna. A Celebration of Life was held in Red Deer at the Davenplace Hall on April 1, 2013 at 2:00 p.m. Donations in Robert’s name are gladly accepted to the charity of one’s choice. The family would like to thank the nurses and doctors at the Red Deer Hospital for their care and support. The exceptional generosity of neighbours and friends was greatly appreciated in this time of need. Condolences may be forwarded to the family by visiting www.eventidefuneralchapels.com.

It is with much grief and sadness that we announce the death of Anita Bouma at Kelowna General Hospital on April 1st, 2013. She was a loving mother, a caring sister, consistent friend and a trusted colleague. Born March 7th, 1953 in Zoutkamp, Netherlands, she immigrated with her family to Canada at the age of 16. In 1975, she moved to Salmon Arm and began nursing at Shuswap Lake General Hospital shortly after. Over a career spanning more than 35 years, Anita took pride in her work and is remembered for her “warm, compassionate personality”. For so many people she will be remembered as the friendly face of the hospital and the woman who ensured patients and guests felt comfortable and kept the unit running smoothly. She cultivated close, long-lasting friendships and was intentional in demonstrating her love. Through times of joy and times of sadness she remained consistent to her friends. Her devotion, contentedness and empathy are qualities we adored and will always remember. As a mother she was a source of inspiration, an ever-present guide and a role model. As a single mother, she raised Marcel with selfless love, providing him with a safe and nurturing home. By her actions she demonstrated the importance of faith, humility, kindness, hard work and active living. She seized every opportunity to celebrate birthdays, holidays and other milestones and made it abundantly clear that she loved and was proud of her son. Anita was the oldest surviving sister and has four siblings: Errit, Marga, Edith and Andrea. She valued family and connectedness and loved bringing everyone together. She was kind and forgiving toward her siblings and selfless when it came to caring for her parents. She deeply appreciated the support from her family and friends. Anita lived an active life and would regularly walk for hours in the evening, particularly with her close friend Erica. She also enjoyed nature and had a passion for whale watching. In recent years she would camp on Malcolm Island, BC and could be found on the beach listening to the songs of the orcas. We would like to invite you to join with us in celebrating Anita’s beautiful life at Broadview Evangelical Free Church (350 - 30th St NE, Salmon Arm, BC) on Sunday, April 14th, 2013 at 2:00 p.m. There will be a reception following the celebration. In lieu of flowers or gifts donations can be made to the AREA Fund (www.areafund.ca) for asbestos research, education and advocacy or BC Heart & Stroke Foundation (www.heartandstroke.bc.ca). On line condolences may be sent to Anita’s obituary at www.bowersfuneralservice.com Arrangements are in the care of Bowers Funeral Home and Crematorium, Salmon Arm.
