All of the firefighters coming here has a ripple effect of learning,” says Andreas, adding that firefighters take back what they’ve learned to share with others in their department. Training is their lifeline and the annual Spring Seminar is an important event. This year there is a long and impressive line up of training

An invitation to attend Probus Club of Copper Island meetings Probus Club of Copper Island has now officially become one of the over 200 Probus clubs in Canada, with more than 27,000 members. It is a combined club that invites men, women, and couples to join and meet more people from the North Shuswap, Chase, Sorrento, Blind Bay, White Lake, Eagle Bay, Wild Rose Bay areas. It is an opportunity to connect with new people, listen to guest speakers, have conversation, share experiences and possibly become part of a sub group with like interests. Guest speakers have been of varied interest including Jim Cooperman from the Shuswap Environmental Action Society. In October two representatives from the BC Securities Commission spoke on investment fraud. Recently, Steve Corrie gave background on The Voice of the Shuswap, the new community radio station out of Salmon Arm.

Youth invited to Cancer Prevention Forum

The Canadian Cancer Society, BC and Yukon, is calling on youth from across the Southern Interior and Kootenay regions of BC between the ages of 19 and 25 to apply to attend a Youth Forum taking place in Vancouver on May 11, 2013. The forum – designed by youth, for youth – will provide a venue for youth to share their ideas on health and cancer prevention as well as provide suggestions on what changes they would like to see. The forum will also provide an opportunity for youth to learn about cancer prevention and build skills to use within their communities to take action on relevant health and cancer prevention issues, becoming part of a larger movement fighting for a world where no Canadian fears cancer. The forum will take place at the Simon Fraser University, Morris J. Wosk Centre for Dialogue in Vancouver. Youth who are residents of British Columbia, active or involved in their community and interested in developing leadership skills are encouraged to apply. Successful applicants must also be committed to contributing to action in their home communities after the youth forum concludes. Travel expenses will be covered. Youth have until March 15, 2013 to submit applications. Applications are available through cancergameplan.ca . Successful applicants will be notified by April 1, 2013.

It’s Thursday night and a few members of the Salmon Arm Fire Department (SAFD) drive to Hall #2 for a Training Committee meeting. They’re one of over a dozen committees who are planning the 2013 BC Volunteer Firefighter Spring Seminar. The Spring Seminar is taking place on the last weekend of April. “There will be 450 attendees and 80 trainers,” says SAFD firefighter Alan Middleton. “They’re coming from all over BC and 200 fire halls will be represented.” Because of the central location, this Spring Seminar is promising to have the best attendance ever. Vendors are coming with the latest in firefighter technology. The arena, curling club and CSRD Fire Training Centre (by the airport) will be buzzing with activity. “A lot of it will be outside and fairly visible to the public. There’s a Fire Fit Challenge that people can watch,” says Alan. “It recreates skills we use every day.” In this, firefighters use their most commonly used skills so spectators can get an idea of the typical ordeal firefighters go through when they attend a fire. They compete against each other as they try for their ‘personal best’ time. This competition will take place outside on the stairs of the Shaw Centre. While the indoor training seminars are restricted to seminar participants, there is a contest the public will able to watch, the Rapid Intervention Team (RIT) Challenge. “In the RIT Challenge, two sets of firefighters go head to head. It’s about being safe themselves and being able to self-rescue.” This is the essence of the Spring Seminar explains Alan - to prepare firefighters for the various situations they may encounter at a fire scene. Over 70 per cent of firefighters in BC are volunteer and it’s education and training that keeps them safe, he adds. SAFD firefighter Andreas Meerza says a lot of people don’t realize their local firefighters are volunteers who have to work training and fire calls around their jobs and family lives. It’s a lifestyle that wouldn’t be possible without the support of their families and employers. When the pager goes off anywhere, anytime, they jump

Organic vs non-organic

familychiropractic COURTESY OF HARBOURFRONT FAMILY CHIROPRACTIC

by Dr. Warren Gage

You may recall that in late 2012, there was much discussion in the media concerning a research paper referred to as “the Stanford Study.” This was a review that looked at over 200 studies on whether organic foods were healthier than conventional foods, with a specific focus on pesticide exposure. While the results of this review are interesting; unfortunately, the media coverage generated a great deal of confusion. Many television and print sources were only reporting the review proved organic foods were not healthier than conventional food. This misinterpretation prompted quite a backlash of accusations against the researchers so I wanted to try to clarify what the Stanford Study really found. First, like any study, there are always weaknesses in the design; and this review is no exception. One of the most obvious is the longest studies reviewed were only two years in length. The longer term effects of pesticide exposure were not included. Also, “health benefits” were defined as the nutrient levels in the food, while again not considering the long-term effects of pesticide accumulation on health. Further, there is a lot of confusion about what are the “safe” levels of pesticides we should eat. Once we wade through the biases and emotion this review

generated, the information that is most important relates to pesticides. However, this continues to be a complicated issue because of the huge number of chemicals involved in various aspects of food production. The US Department of Agriculture website alone lists 313 different chemicals used in agriculture. So, how do we convert all this data into useful information for us to use at the local grocery store or farmer’s market? Thankfully, the Environmental Working Group (EWG) has already done a lot of this work by analyzing which conventional non-organic foods are the most contaminated and which are the least. When looking at conventionally-grown produce, the ones with the highest levels of pesticides include apples, spinach, celery, lettuce, bell peppers, cucumbers, peaches, nectarines, blueberries, strawberries, potatoes, green beans, grapes, kale and collard greens. The produce with the lowest amount of pesticides are

A Legacy to Health & Healing “Santa’s wishes do come true” at the McClelland home

Even crocodile tears are made up of a complex mixture of water, fatty oils, proteins, electrolytes, bacteria-fighting substances and growth factors that regulate various cell processes. The watery tear film acts as a gatekeeper, protects your eyes by helping to clear debris, and also aids in reducing the risk of infections. Another important function of tears is to keep the eyes lubricated. For people who have a “dry eye” problem, this can be very annoying. Usually symptoms of dry eyes are present in both eyes, which typically includes stinging, burning or itchiness. Moreover, without tears the eyes are easily fatigued after short periods of reading or watching TV. As we age, tear production is decreased, affecting both men and women. The condition is, however, more common among women, especially after menopause, but there are other serious conditions that can cause dry eyes. This symptom is also associated with medical conditions such as rheumatoid

onions, eggplant, corn, kiwi, pineapple, cantaloupe, avocados, sweet potatoes, cabbage, grapefruit, sweet peas, watermelon, asparagus, mushrooms, and mangoes. Personally, I think it is wise to constantly strive to reduce our exposure to as little as possible. I would rather eat something that has NO pesticides or chemicals than something that has an “acceptable” level of chemicals. In my opinion, eating 100% organic all the time is ideal; unfortunately, finances often govern our shopping decisions. So, if you are not able to maintain a 100% organic diet, at least try to stay organic when buying the above-listed foods that fall under the highest levels of pesticides. As with all aspects of our health, nobody can be 100% perfect ALL of the time. But, we can all strive to make better choices 100% of the time.

Vanishing tears

arthritis, lupus, scleroderma and Sjogren’s syndrome, medications and radiation. Certain drugs, including common anti-depressants, beta blockers, decongestants, sleeping pills and morphine can also cause dry eyes. Other conditions like vitamin A deficiency, Blepharitis, (an inflammation along the edge of the eyelids) and environmental irritants such as smoke, sun, wind, low humidity, high altitudes and indoor heating can prevent the eyes from tearing. Lastly, a prolonged time between blinking, such as when visually concentrating on something, for example, working at a computer, driving a vehicle or reading can cause dry eyes. So remember to blink! Vitamin A, betacarotene and essential fatty acids, especially omega 3s, are important for eye health. Using a humidifier in the house also helps to lessen dryness of the eyes. Over-the-counter drops, called artificial tears, are available. The best eye drops are those containing the least preservatives. Some people use drops for irritated red eyes, but unfortunately they can cause even more dryness. Eye drops and gel gives symptomatic relief. The best thing is to look for underlying cause and treat it accordingly.

Additional health funding for Salmon Arm include help for those with COPD

Patients with chronic disease and those with mental illness and substance use issues will benefit from new or expanded programming announced by the Province of BC recently. These programs are community-based and intended to help improve patients’ quality of life and help keep people out of the hospital. “By providing additional community supports to targeted areas we can support those most at risk, while also helping to divert visits from the Emergency Department which we know is a more expensive but less effective point of care for many of these cases,” says Shuswap MLA George Abbott. The areas targeted in Salmon Arm include Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, which is a chronic condition that obstructs air flow in a patient’s lungs; and mental health and substance use. “The projects outlined are all great examples of integration in health care at work,” says Norman Embree, Interior Health Board Chair. “These are targeted approaches to very specific populations, and we are excited to be working with local physicians and our staff in these key areas.” Salmon Arm is one of several com-

munities within Interior Health to receive funding. Communities were selected based on a number of factors, including the prevalence of related conditions and the demand for additional community-based supports. COPD is one of the leading causes of death in Canada and rates continue to increase. Statistics show within Interior Health the percentage of patients with COPD has climbed from 5.4 per cent in 2001 to 7.8 per cent in 2010. The unpredictable and serious nature of “flare-ups,” when symptoms such as shortness of breath, coughing, and mucous become acute, means many COPD patients often must use hospital Emergency Departments. In Salmon Arm, the equivalent of1.5 full-time staffing positions will be added including social and life skills workers. By focusing on community resources, the program is expected to reduce the use of more expensive but less effective points of care such as the hospital Emergency Department. The initiatives are being rolled out over three years in Salmon Arm as well as other select communities throughout Interior Health.

Johnston Meier Insurance Agencies Group has purchased Lakeside Insurance Services in Salmon Arm, and McLeod Agencies (2002) Ltd. in Enderby, effective March 1, 2013. Johnston Meier Insurance Agencies Group is a privately owned BC Insurance Brokerage that was established in 1973 and currently has 41 offices servicing over 250,000 customers throughout the Lower Mainland and the Interior of BC. They will continue to operate the two offices under the existing names with the same great staff. As one of the major brokerage operations in BC, Johnston Meier Insurance represents a host of leading Canadian and International insurers. With this multiple company representation, they bring a larger variety of insurance products and competitive pricing to the customers of Lakeside Insurance and McLeod Agencies. With their motto of “Commitment to Customer Service, First and Foremost,” customers can be assured that they will continue to get the same great attention to individual needs, but now with more options than ever. Joan Sholinder and Winston Pain would like to thank the customers, staff and community for the past support and patronage to both offices. Both feel the new ownership will continue to operate a community friendly business and are confident that both staff and customers will benefit from this inclusion of the Johnston Meier Insurance family.

What’s the difference? If no one has written to complain whenever other types of local retailers advertise that they’ll price match the rest in that community on identical or comparable products, why is there such an uproar about local gas stations essentially doing the same thing to remain competitive in the same community while selling fuel there?

New lab collection service for Sicamous

Interior Health is opening a new lab collection service in Sicamous. The new service offers area residents more collection options when needing to provide blood or urine samples. “A lab collection service is great news for the community,” said George Abbott, MLA for Shuswap. “This new service will make a real difference for those who find it difficult to travel to Salmon Arm.” Starting on March 11, 2013, the new service will operate every Monday, except statutory holidays, from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Sicamous Health Centre, located at 1133 Highway 97A. “Expanding lab service to Sicamous had been under consideration for some time,” said Norman Embree, Interior Health Board Chair. “Thanks to the support of the Shuswap Hospital Foundation, we’re excited to see this expansion moving forward.”

The Shuswap Hospital Foundation has committed $10,000 for the equipment to help make the service a reality. Doctors at the Sicamous Medical Clinic have been collecting lab specimens for area residents who may have difficulty travelling to the lab in Salmon Arm and forwarding the samples to Salmon Arm for processing. “Interior Health thanks the doctors for their years of providing this service,” added Embree. “We’ve been working on bringing lab collection services to Sicamous for some time and we’re happy to see progress is being made,” said Dr. Jack Beech, a local physician. “The new service is great news for our patients.” A community open house is planned for Monday, March 25 from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. The open house will provide residents with an opportunity to learn about the new lab service.

JOIN A NEW UKULELE BAND IN SICAMOUS

One way people can stay young is to learn a new skill, meet new friends, and have fun. In Sicamous, close to 20 people have formed the Sicamous Three Chord Ukulele Band, or STUB. They get together every Monday at 1 p.m. at the Red Barn Arts Centre. Dues are $10 per year and $1 per visit. Carla Krens, president of the Eagle Valley Arts Council, says the band hopes many more people will join. No experience is necessary. NO NEED TO READ MUSIC. The only thing you need is a ukulele, and they can help you find one, and a willingness to have fun. They base all their repertoire on three chords, which Carla says is achievable by anyone, even someone who has never played an instrument.

HORSES RAISED FOR MEAT ARE MISTREATED

Last week I wrote about the horse meat controversy in Europe. Jean wrote: When you and I were kids, horses ate grass and oats and had jobs. Not so anymore. They live on tiny pieces of land and just stand around. They are now regularly given painkillers, tranquilizers, bronchodilators, anabolic steroids, wormers, ulcer medications, diuretics, antibiotics, fertility drugs and more. Bute (phenalbutazone) is given to horses as commonly as Aspirin is to humans. It is a known carcinogen and is prohibited in horse meat produced by EU trading partners including the U.S. where 95 to 100 percent of horses have been buted.

Don’t leave the stove when you cook milk. 2. Know where you put your keys. 3. Put the telephone down after a call. 4. Don’t repeat yourself after five minutes. 5. See glory in all things. Don’t complain. 6. Don’t do five things at one time.

TEN DAYS TO END A COMMON-LAW RELATIONSHIP

If you are not happy with your present living arrangement because your partner has too much debt or too many toys or too many kids, you have until March 17 at midnight to move to another place to live. On Monday, March 18, B.C.’s new Family Law Act comes into effect. A couple that has been living together for two years or longer will now be considered full spouses under the law. If they split after March 17, they will divide the property in half, divide the family assets, and assume the same spousal support of the children as a married couple.

REGISTER FOR PST BEFORE THE RUSH

Why put it off? The seven per cent provincial sales tax that businesses will collect will be implemented on April

1st, so don’t leave it to March 29 to get a tax number for your business. You can register three ways: 1. Online at www.gov.bc/etaxbc. It will take about 20 minutes to complete. 2. In person at a Service BC Centre. That’s where you renew your driver’s licence. 3. By mail or fax. You can get the form at a Service BC Centre, or by calling 1-877-388-4440, or by going to www. gov.bc.ca/pst and clicking on forms and publications.

WHAT GETS CHARGED PST & WHAT IS EXEMPT?

PST of seven per cent will apply to the purchase of most new and used goods, software, accommodation, haircuts, legal and telecommunications services, newspapers and magazines, etc. These will NOT have PST added: the purchase of food for humans, bicycles, dry cleaning, admissions and memberships, transportation fares, newspaper advertising, etc. See the lists on www.gov.bc.ca/pst or phone your question toll free to 1-877-388-4440. The phones are staffed from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday to Friday. You can also send a question by email to CTBTaxQuestions@gov.bc.ca.

WHAT WILL BE CHARGED FIVE PERCENT GST?

Beginning April 1, the following will be charged five percent GST: newspapers, magazines, restaurant meals, but if you have an alcoholic drink with your meal, it will be taxed at 10 percent PST. More information on GST can be obtained by googling: GST in BC April 1.

I HAD A VERY HIGH ELECTRICITY BILL

I was shocked when I received my last bill for two months from BC Hydro. Smart Meters are not being used so we can’t blame them. I shoveled a path for the meter reader so it wasn’t an estimate. I’m using even less power since I got the bill, so I’ll see if the next bill will be lower.

MANY LOCALS WERE AT WALMART

While in Vernon one afternoon last week, I shopped at Walmart for a few things. I was surprised at how many people were from this area. We exchanged many hellos, and one person asked me when Salmon Arm will get a Walmart. I said read my last Friday’s column.

I thought I would share the story of my husband’s adventure. We got some phone calls from local people up on Grandview Bench about a cougar killing people’s dogs in their backyard. My husband Shane Brady has been a cougar hunter for over 30 years and has three trained cougar hounds. He and his friends Colin Edny, Jamie Colin and Al Crawford, from Kamloops, and Dean and Dylan Trembley from the television show Trigger Effect, along with conservation officers from Vernon, all went to the last house where the cougar had killed a dog that very morning. When the hounds were dispatched,

they immediately picked up the fresh scent of the cougar and treed it a short distance away. Shane was perplexed as to why this cat was behaving this way. He had suspected that the cat may have been either very young and starving, or else old and injured, but upon a close examination realized that he was a young, healthy, fully-grown male. This cat had obviously found an easy food source and stuck with it. It had literally been living in the back yard and had so far killed nine dogs over a period of two weeks. After putting down the cougar, everyone went home proud of a good day’s work; and the next day there was another phone call about another cougar just up the road from the last

one, that had chased a house cat up a tree. So, Shane rallied the troops once again and the chase was on. Sure enough, a short while later they treed another fully-grown healthy male cougar. Most likely these two had been litter mates at one time, since they were both approximately 2-3 years old. This cougar too was put down, as relocating it would have only moved the problem of the human-habituated predator to another neighbourhood. Way to go to all of the guys and dogs for keeping us and our pets safe once again! Stephanie Lamarche, White Lake

Community input invited on plan that will guide Salmon Arm’s future

6. A draft of the Strategic Plan will be made available for community input before the plan is approved by City Council. Chief Administrative Officer Carl Bannister says the City has created two surveys to gather input from residents and community organizations. “The residents’ survey will allow all community members to communicate their priorities directly to City Council and Staff for consideration in the Strategic Plan,” says Mr. Bannister. “A second survey for Salmon Arm community organizations will gather feedback on which projects or initiatives the organizations are planning to undertake over the next 10 to 15 years and what alignment there may be with the City’s goals.” Through past community engagement, Mr. Bannister says the City has identified several key goal areas that appear to be top-of-mind to community members and will be important in shaping the Strategic Plan. They include: 1. Parks and Recreation 2. Utilities and Public Works Infrastructure 3. Transportation Infrastructure 4. Arts, Culture and Heritage 5. Economic Opportunity 6. Natural Environment, Agriculture and Climate Change 7. Social Support and Housing Diversity 8. Sustainable Community Development .9. Partnerships and Relationships The residents’ survey and the community organization survey will be available on March 13, 2013. The residents’ survey can either be accessed and completed on line on the City’s website at www.salmo narm.ca/strategicplan or residents can pick up a paper copy from City Hall at 500 2nd Avenue NE, Salmon Arm, BC, V1E 4N2. Community organizations will receive their survey information via email or mail before March 13, 2013 for completion by a representative of the organization. All surveys will need to be completed and submitted prior to 4:00 p.m. on April 10, 2013 in order for survey results to be tabulated to meet the City’s Strategic Planning timelines. Completed paper surveys can be returned to City Hall. The City intends to complete the Strategic Plan by Fall 2013.

by Daron Mayes Jumping Jack Rabbits When I was a teenager I used to drive my mother crazy by jumping all around the house. I played lots of basketball and volleyball growing up so it was only natural that when I was at home I treated the house like my very own gymnasium. I couldn’t just walk down a hall without jumping up and touching the ceiling. Every doorway I walked through I would jump up a slap the door frame. Sometimes it was a simple slap and sometimes it involved spinning in the air before slapping the frame. The more I grew and the higher I could jump, the more I would challenge myself. Eventually I would do things like try and touch my elbow to the ceiling and even my head. To say the least the hormones were clouding my ability to think clearly. It was bad enough I was eating my parents out of house and home during those years, but as you can see I was destroying the house too. Actually, I don’t think I destroyed too much of the house, but I did have to wash a lot of hand prints off of walls. Well payback is sweet. I now have a teenage son and yes, he too, is determined to jump around like a jack rabbit. Like me, it seems his hormones are beginning to cloud his judgment. The other day he was jumping up and touching the ceiling in our basement. However, that wasn’t good enough so for a challenge he put some weights in the pockets of his jogging pants. He then positioned himself on one side of the room, took a few large steps and launched himself upwards to touch the ceiling. The only problem was he went upward, but his weighted down jogging pants didn’t and in a flash he was standing there in his underwear with his pants around his ankles. The funniest part is I tried the same thing when I was his age. So I immediately took inventory of all the “not so bright” things I did when I was a teenager. To say the least I began to break out into a cold sweat. The big difference between him and me is that I didn’t have a Dad who wrote articles about such things. Oh well, it is important that he stayed grounded and be able to laugh at himself once in a while; I am only helping him with that. I mean, life is too short to simply worry about hair gel and the type of shoes you wear. Someone do a good deed for you? Place a free star in the Lakeshore News.

HST registration is a requirement for all businesses who gross $30,000 or more. If you are just starting out & are unsure of your income potential you can wait until you are close to the $30,000 mark to register. At $30,000 you no longer have a choice - registration is mandatory. An advantage to registration is that all the hst you pay out on expenses can be claimed back against hst you collect. The $30,000 gross applies to all your gross self employment income even if it is from several small businesses that are each under $30,000 but together are $30,000 or more. Filing requirements depend on your income. It is usually annually or quarterly. The key to hst is don't be late filing your hst return or CRA will eventually assess you with an amount that they feel is accurate, coupled with penalty and interest. Be sure to keep the hst you collect from your sales separate from your other income so that when it comes time to remit it to CRA you don't have a problem. We can take care of all this for you at H&R Block. Come in and see us. You’ll be glad you did.

A study by a Simon Fraser University researcher shows British Columbia has much higher traffic death rates than most northern European countries. Comparisons to the safest country, the Netherlands, suggest B.C. could reduce the number of traffic deaths by more than 200 per year. It also found that fatality and injury risks varied by travel mode. The study, Exposure-based Traffic Crash Injury Rates of Travel in British Columbia, confirmed using B.C. data that amongst travel modes, cyclists and pedestrians do indeed carry higher injury risk than drivers. It also demonstrated that traffic fatality risks are far lower in other countries, indicating that safety improvements are possible.

The City of Salmon Arm is creating its first ever long-term Strategic Plan. When complete, the plan will be a guide to help City Council and Staff more effectively make decisions around infrastructure planning and implementation, prioritize projects and spending, identify revenue sources and consider taxation over the next 10 to 15 years. “The City has developed and implemented a number of strategies in the past, such as our Official Community Plan” says Mayor Nancy Cooper. “The advantage we see in creating an overarching Strategic Plan is that it will provide greater alignment and efficiencies for all planning across City operations.” While direction for the plan will primarily come from City Council and Senior Management, community members and organizations will be asked to participate at key times in the planning process, according to Mayor Cooper. “The City has undertaken extensive public consultation in the past on matters of community direction,” says Mayor Cooper. “We intend to use strategies like our Official Community Plan and the community input that went into developing it to help inform this strategic planning process. But we also want to touch base with the community as a way to check in on what specific opportunities they see as being important to achieving our vision and goals as identified in our OCP. ” The Strategic Plan is unfolding through a six-step process: 1. The City will undertake background research and identify key factors what will shape the City and its local government. 2. Municipal leaders, including City Council and Staff, will provide their input. 3. Residents and community organizations will be invited to provide input through on-line, targeted surveys. 4. City Council and Staff will identify priorities for inclusion in the Strategic Plan. 5. Task force teams will be created to refine and develop the strategy and action plans for each priority. Task force teams may consist of municipal employees, external advisors and community representatives.

British Columbia traffic deaths could be cut in half

Great success at Heritage Week Submitted by R.J. Haney Heritage Village & Museum

The word “thank you” just does not seem big enough for the generous support that R.J. Haney Heritage Village & Museum received at Heritage Week recently. SAMHA would like to acknowledge and say thank you to all of the following: • The organizations and individuals with displays or demonstrations at The Mall at Piccadilly, which make the week very interesting.

These efforts raised over $16,000 for the Village. Pie donors were Bert Revel, Colleen Fuse, Gene Ludwig, Peggy Sikora, Bonnie Peterson, Alice Broeder, Reta Williston, Gloria Alexander, Irene Campbell, Peggy Dewick, Kerry Peters, Mary Jo Beirnes and James Murray. Winning bidders were W.H. Laird Holdings Ltd, Excel Construction Ltd, Bill Laird, Jim Grieve Sales Team, Jim Grieve, Brooke Jackson Downs, Gary Brooke, Brown Johnson Land Surveyors, Joe Johnson, Bobbi Johnson, Mounce Construction Ltd, Wayne Mounce, Jacobson Ford Sales Ltd,

Thank you to all who entered a pie into this lip smacking competition. • A job well done to our judges, Terry Timms, Peter Clark, Rich Daniels, Rob Sengotta, Mary Jo Beirnes and Cheryl Cruikshank. • Save-On-Foods for donating all the supplies needed for the pie baking contest and auction. • All the businesses and individuals who donated to our silent auction and our volunteers the backbone of this organization. • Our co-sponsor of this event, The Mall at Piccadilly and their great staff for all their hard work. A big thank you to all the residents of Salmon Arm and the Shuswap community for making this our most successful Heritage Week to date raising over $24,000. Needless to say, staff, volunteers and Board Members of SAMHA are sporting huge ear to ear grins. See you next February for the 18th Annual Heritage Week Celebrations.

Don’t bite the hand that..... looks dirty. A penny saved is…….not much. Children should be seen and not….. spanked or grounded. Laugh and the whole world laughs with you. Cry and…….you have to blow your nose. There’s no fool like..... Aunt Edie.

Looking back to some great Revelstoke area experiences

For the many years I spent in Revelstoke fighting fire and logging, it never stopped the yearning to hike, climb, fish or visit with the kin (Graham family); to admire the mountains, to find a new lake or stake a mineral claim way back yonder. After all these years, I still recall the three of us young bucks leaving Armstrong with packs on our backs to a life of adventure, ending up on the lawn of the Revelstoke Courthouse, conscripted to go fight fire. It didn’t take long before Sandy, assistant ranger, skillfully guided our river boat, with nine men, on the Canoe River, to a stopping spot where we climbed upward through timber to glaciers with back pumps called piss tanks, shovels, blankets, and some grub. Names like Devlin, Beffaro, Couffin, come to mind. Then there was Har fire Slim. Har was the name given the fire. Slim was the smooth talker who did little grubbing or cooking, but jilted us young guys out of money when we had cashed our cheques and cleaned up, at the ole King Edward Hotel, after 14 days on the line. Sandy packed a flare with him. At a designated time one night, he would strike the flare, and two would be set off at the bridge at Boat Encampment. Next day, the plane flew over dropping grub, files, pulaskis (grubhoe/axe), butter (came in round cans them days), coffee, all parachuted down. The next fire was in Revelstoke National Park. We manned pumps and hoses. When the fire crowned (danced above in treetops), we bailed, every man jack to himself. We scrambled down the high cliffs to the road, where the top of the Revelstoke dam sits today! Logging: We logged and fell timber with the best of ‘em! Whether it was L&G (Love & Graham), D&A, Scott’s, we all had a stake in big timber going down, whether behind the dam site at Revelstoke or Red Rock Harbour winter logging. This was close to where the crew boats, Mica Dawn and Mica Mist, hauled work crews to the Wood River logging shows. Many drownings and mishaps occurred there. The roar of skidders, loaders, decks of wood, setting chokers in mud, rain and snow, are all reminiscent of days gone by. Sidmouth/Arrowhead days: Wilbur Graham was a character who visited the Graham family on occasion. They lived across the river, at Sidmouth, right where the 24 mile

cable ferry docked. It was June, and the Columbia river was in flood stage. Imbibing of John Barleycorn was just one of Wilbur’s favourite past times, so on leaving he parked at the ferry slip, only to have his new Pontiac sedan roll into the river. There was Wilbur standing on the roof as the car drifted off, then abruptly diving back inside to retrieve his cowboy hat! One day Caulder Soles and Graham family crew barged the Forest Service ranger station up the Columbia river (from Arrowhead), and hooked up on cables, sinking one of Celgar’s rented tugs for the job. We hauled it out of the river using grapple hooks and cables with a D-6 cat, drained the new Grey Marine engine by removing the plugs, poured in kerosene and flushed it. We fired it up to complete the job, hauling the buildings upriver to Greenslide where they remain to this day. Hunting: Many fall seasons were spent hunting goat, deer and moose in the region, including the Akolkolex, to above Revelstoke, and now Mica area. One very late cold snow laden moose hunt involved drifting the ice crusted Columbia River above Big Mouth. Chasing a moose into a large red willow flat, I came upon a large steam donkey used in bygone logging days, with boiler and all intact, nestled in overgrown willows. On returning from our successful hunt, I enquired if it was possible to have it removed to town. It is on display, along with the famous “wooden head” which we saw and admired as young bucks a very long time ago, while camped at Boat Encampment ready to fight fire the old fashioned way with blood sweat and tears. Retired, and hauling Armstrong watermelon/cantaloupe (sometime back now), to the Farmer’s market at Grizzly Plaza in Revelstoke, I still admired the generosity and admiration folks there have for one another, even in long line-ups. Folks would step forward and help bag the delicious melon for others. It was always fun haggling with the Italians/Portuguese living there, over prices on tomatoes,

Round and about the Shuswap

It was in deep snow, at times, that we did logging inspections years ago with Forest Service folks. We looked for proper skidding techniques, landing sites, oversize wood in top piles. This day we walked up a skid trail to see a puff of steam near a large old snow covered stump. A bear was happily snoozing the winter away in his den. It was quickly ribboned off. A huntin’ buddy called last week to say he saw a bear emerge from a culvert out in Tappen. On inspection, our bruin had hauled in dry grasses, brush, twig/sticks for a cosy place to while the winter away. While logging in deep snows at Red Rock harbour years back, cat skinner Jim Graham nudged a large stump while making skid trail. The smell was overpowering as we placed a large welding tarp over the spot, and shovelled snow back over. It was a grizzly’s cozy den. Question was — “who” would be the brave soul who’d go, retrieve that ruddy tarp come spring! Bears stuff themselves with dry grasses to avoid defecation during hibernation. They purge themselves on green grasses, come spring, to cleanse themselves! Nature’s way! Fishing report: Many anglers are now waiting for ice off to get out on the water. Shuswap Lake is producing large rainbows for those with bigger comfortable boats. Please catch and release smaller trout, 50 cm and larger. Must have a Shuswap rainbow endorsement on license. One trout a day possession limit, five for the season. Practice conservation. This is why John Cartwright and Brian Hebdon, biologists, could visualize a continuing sustainable fishery for the gem we call the Shuswap! Tight lines, good fishin’, involving all the things you do as a sportsman, including ladies too!

The roar of skidders, loaders, decks of wood, setting chokers in mud, rain and snow, are all reminiscent of days gone by.

The future of Ballet Kelowna is in the community’s hands

Ballet Kelowna invites you to witness what may well be the company’s final performances at the Shuswap Theatre on March 14th at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. In early February, the Board of Directors announced its intention to suspend operations at the end of the company’s 10th Anniversary Season in April. The company has experienced an outpouring of community support from individuals and businesses including The Canadian School of Ballet, Chris and Michelle Sorensen and the Thomas Alan Budd Foundation – each of whom has stepped forward to help Ballet Kelowna complete their season. The ‘little ballet company that could’ will take the stage in communities across BC on tour this spring including outreach performances in several schools as well as dates in Vernon, Creston, Summerland, Coquitlam and Mission. Additional program and ticket information can be found at www.ballet kelowna.ca.

No passport is required as Ballet Kelowna wraps up a decade of artistic excellence with a performance that takes us on a journey through Spain, Russia, England and then home to Canada. The trip begins in Spain with the pas de trois from Paquita, a story of a beautiful gypsy girl who falls in love with a French nobleman, and to England for Five for Frank, a whimsical work choreographed by Ballet Kelowna’s own Artistic Director David LaHay. Britain also brings Journey Out of Darkness, a performance that moves us from sorrow to hope, loss to salvation. Among the contemporary Canadian works on the program is In Stride, a jazz-inspired, pulse-driven dance to driving guitar rhythms. It will be a grand finale performance to remember, and you will definitely be moved! For further information please contact: Meaghan Williams, Executive Director David LaHay, Artistic Director Ballet Kelowna Kelowna Ballet Society 250-762-6105, 250-762-6105.

Larch Hills Nordics awarded team trophy at Midget Championships in Revelstoke

The Larch Hills Nordics not only earned top finishes in the two day cross-country skiing Midget Championships’ event held at Mt. Macpherson, but they also earned the most club points overall and won the Team Aggregate Trophy. “It may be the first time for Larch Hills,” coach Phil Wallensteen points out. “The first time that I know of.” As for the races, the rain Saturday stopped just in time for the 2.5 km Classic races to begin. The 2003 Girls category was won by Sophia Van Varseveld, with Claire Van Bergeyk taking second place. For the 2003 Boys, it was Trond May who earned the first place position.

Finally, Annah Bucher took ninth place for the 2000 Girls category and Konrad Van Varseveld earned third place for the 2000 Boys category. The next event was the four person relay event, which saw the Moo-licious team of Megan Hart, Leah Nash, Annah Bucher and Aria Izik-Dzurko taking fifth place. Sunday was an exciting 300 meter sprint race

that was fast paced and action packed. All participants race three rounds. The top skiers in each heat move up within their category while the bottom skiers move down to ski against other top or bottoms skiers in other heats. Heats were comprised of up to six skiers. When the final results were tabulated, Stephen Moore earned a first place finish overall for the 2002 Boys category, Maggie Beckner earned first place for the 2002 Girls category, Trond May earned top place for the 2003 Boys Category, and Sophia Van Varseveld took third place for the 2003 Girls category.

Seed Swap in Enderby proves popular

On Saturday cars were parked for two blocks all around A.L. Fortune School in order to attend the Seed Savers Swap and Sale, one of the largest of its type in the province. There were displays of everything organic from worm composting to honey. Of course the big draw was the sale of heritage and home grown seeds from all around the province.

EVERY DAY IS

EARTH DAY Check the air pressure in your tires often. Studies indicate that approximately 25 % of vehicles have under inflated tires by about seven pounds per square inch, especially during winter’s colder temperatures. This leads to an average loss of fuel efficiency to the tune of 3%, or a loss of 4 cents per litre at today’s local gas prices.

Alvin Greggor September 4, 1930 February 27, 2013

Alvin passed away peacefully with his family by his side on February 27, 2013 at the age of 82. Alvin was born in Goodeve, Saskatchewan. He spent his early years farming in the Woodnorth / Cromer area in Manitoba. The family moved into Brandon in 1967 where he held jobs with MacArthur Trucking and Macy Foods. Alvin and Shirley moved to the Salmon Arm area in 1981 where he worked for Paul and Lil Sherba (Clean Care Services) until his retirement. Alvin loved farming and from this came his love of nature. He loved nothing better than puttering in his yard resulting in a beautiful gathering place for family. He also loved fishing. He had many fishing days in Manitoba and on the Shuswap with his brother, Ian, where they would sit for hours swapping stories. His grandchildren heard lots of stories about the good old days and these will be missed by all. He leaves behind his wife of 58 years, Shirley, his children: Darla (Rick) Wilkinson, Darcy Greggor, Dean Greggor, Shari (Bruce) Ball and Bradley Greggor. Also grandchildren Troy, Trevor, Tysen, Brodie, Dustin, Jared, Ashlee, Malcolm, Madyson, Jaicee and Jaiden and great grandchildren Brooke and Aiden. Alvin was predeceased by his parents, Joe & Jean Greggor, his brother and sister, Ian and Josephine and his daughter Kimberley. Alvin always referred to the Prairies as home and he will be returning to the old Homestead this summer. A celebration of Alvin’s life will be held at the Reston United Church with a date as yet undetermined. The family wishes to thank Dr. Kirkman and the wonderful staff at Shuswap Lake General Hospital and Bastion Place for their compassionate care of Alvin in his final days.

KONOTOPSKI DOUGLAS DAVID Aug. 1, 1945 – March 2, 2013 After a brief illness, Doug Konotopski, passed away peacefully on March 2nd, 2013, surrounded by his family, at 67 years. He will be lovingly remembered by his wife, Karen, of 32 years and his three children, David (Nicki), Danielle, and Damian.  Grandpa will be greatly missed by Kailey, Cole and Haidyn.  Other family who will hold Doug’s memory dear are Guenther and Dorothea, Jack and Rachel, Brandy and Andy, Tiffany and Ryan, Chris, Ted, Marilyn, Rob, Shirley, Jim, Lloyd, Denis and Rhonda.   He will always be remembered by his camping buddies.  Doug will be missed by his adoring pets: Fly, Chase and Kesler the goose. Doug was a tireless worker.  He was a baker for most of his life but his true passion was his family.   There was never anything the family could ask of him that he would not do.   This selflessness and generosity was meant for everyone, friends, family and strangers - anyone in need.   Doug’s unique sense of humour kept people smiling even through the last days of his illness. On February 10, 2013 Doug rededicated his life to Jesus.  He was so excited to have this opportunity to do this in front of his Lakeside Community Church family who have been such an extraordinary support to him and his family. A special thank you to Dr Plessis, Dr Black and the nursing staff at SLGH for the wonderful care Doug received. “Smiling he said as his last sigh was spent. I am so glad that for me He was sent.  Whispered while low sunk the sun in the west, Lord I believe.  Tell it now to the rest� For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son, that who ever believes in him will not die but have everlasting life.  John 3:16 A celebration of Doug’s life will be held Saturday, March 9th, 1:00pm at Crossroads Free Methodist Church, 121 Shuswap St. SW.  A bonfire at the family’s residence to follow at 3pm.   In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Lakeside Community Church, Facilities Fund. Arrangements entrusted to FISCHER’S FUNERAL SERVICES & CEMATORIUM LTD., Salmon Arm, (250) 833-1129. EMAIL condolences and share memories through Doug’s obituary at ww.fischersfuneralservices.com.
