Blind Bay Resort application returns

Zoning amendment: Property plans go back to regional district for approval. By Barb Brouwer

MARKET NEWS STAFF

After being turned down in a controversial tie vote by Columbia Shuswap Regional District directors in January, Blind Bay Resort owner Dan Baskill’s application to develop his property was quietly given approval for first reading at the board’s May15 meeting. This was just four months after his proposal was denied instead of the six-month timeline set out in the Municipal Act, as is the directors’ right.

Unlike the sometimes contentious chat that took place during the Jan.16 board meeting attended by some 40 outraged Baskill supporters, directors consented to revisiting the proposal without comment. CSRD senior planner Dan Passmore then noted that Baskill’s proposal for 19 modular buildings in an area of single-family homes is incompatible with the area’s newlyminted official community plan. “There is incompatibility with neighbourhood uses, particularly on

cent of the people support this,” he said. “I am asking for your support to see this go through and, as this is a fairly complex development, I would like for staff to arrange a site visit so directors could see how important it is.” This could go far to address angry protests that followed the January decision that directors living far from a development and without full knowledge of it have the power to See Public on page A2

the foreshore, which is a keystone in the OCP bylaw 725 (new bylaw), which was eight years in construction,” he said. But once again offering his ardent support for the application, South Shuswap director Paul Demenok pointed out the area has always been a resort and there are not many campsites left in the area. “The other thing to consider is look at the last public hearing, where, based on my assessment of the scenario, a minimum of 80 per

JAMES MURRAY/MARKET NEWS

Public hearing expected to be held in July Continued from front determine the outcome, particularly when there is seemingly strong local public support. Baskill, meanwhile, believes his latest plan was sufficiently changed to waive the six-month waiting period for re-application. “I reduced the moorage from 70 slips to 55… Instead of five per cent (of the project’s value) in land along the western portion of the property, I’ve chosen five per cent in cash that will go into the park’s fund, which was accepted by Director Demenok,” said Baskill. As well as offering five per cent in cash, Baskill says the land he had originally offered will be provided as an easement in order to allow public access. “They’re getting both – a public park area and cash,” he says. “CSRD planning staff seem very willing to walk this through one more time. We’re gonna work with bylaw 725.”

Like Demenok, Baskill argues his property was a campground long before it became a resort in 1972. He says rather than the unregulated property that was often the site of boisterous parties, his development attracts families to a safe, secured resort. Baskill is optimistic that because the stakeholders who will review his application have al-

ready seen the proposal, it will soon be back to the regional district board for second reading. Because the proposal has already been through a complex process, staff have recommended a simple consultation process. CSRD Development Services manager Gerald Christie says timelines are “still in a bit of flux,” because the pro-

posal has been referred to several agencies. “But, I don’t believe there were major issues,” he said. When all the agencies have responded, the proposal will go back to the board for second reading. Following that, the public will be given an opportunity to have their say at a public hearing, one that Baskill hopes to be able to host in July.

Investigating White Lake

WLRA volunteers have been given sample kits and will carefully cut the stomachs out of fish, preserve them with alcohol and freeze them for transport to TRU for assessment. “They will date them and compare it with whatever data we can find on the lake,” he says. “I don’t think we have much invertebrate data on White Lake. We will compare what should be hatching and what the fish should be feeding on given the time periods.” Every, meanwhile, says the overall consensus of those at last week’s meeting was that “speculation has no place in the judgments or decisions that need to be made at White Lake.”

LAURA LAVIGNE

fish are the culprits and increasing the number of trout fry that enter the lake will likely mean that increased competition for food will result in small, thin fish. In terms of the overall fishery, Maricle says he sees a real conflict of opinions. “Some people say it’s fine and others say, no it’s not,” he said Monday. “There’s no question the gold fish are coming back for some reason – they were kind of gone in 2009.” Maricle says Fisheries was thinking of trapping them in order to find them because none were evident, a surprise considering the high

to thrive.” But nothing would go forward without Maricle seeking input from several interested groups including the White Lake Residents Association. “The trout fishery is good (right now) but I do think it will collapse again,” he says, explaining that carp, the species to which gold fish belong, is the highest invasive species in B.C. lakes. Before Fisheries officials consider options for White Lake, studies will be undertaken to try to gather more information. A Thompson Rivers University student has been hired to look at vegetation changes and assess stomachs taken from trout caught.

numbers seen the previous year. “I fully knew they were coming back and for the time it’s taken them, the (trout) fishery has been getting better, better than 2009,” he says, noting he is now getting reports of big schools of gold fish. “People are finding fish in the stomachs of the trout. They’re feeding on them, but they won’t control them.” Maricle says if the density gets too high, the trout fishery will crash somewhat. “We may have to consider looking at another salmonid species that can compete with the goldfish,” he says. “People who are traditionalists don’t want a bandaid fix, they want the trout fishery

Labour log jam requires mediator The long-standing dispute between the B.C. Teachers Federation and the Liberal government is one of the most polarizing in recent memory. On the one hand are people familiar with the day-to-day challenges teachers face, i.e. parents. They know those challenges were exacerbated when the province cut in-class resources and maxed out class sizes. They especially feel for the educators if they happen to have special needs children falling through the cracks. On the other hand are people who believe teachers have it made: they already make good money and receive the equivalent of three months’ paid holidays a year. On average, they’re paid above average compared to other workers in B.C. Many rank-and-file teachers admit money is not the key issue, it’s working conditions. They seem hampered by the fact their union executive continues to argue for a return to smaller classes and more teaching assistants, as well as demanding significant raises. The province insists there’s not enough money available. Fair enough, but why take the aggressive step of calling for inordinate cash penalties against striking teachers before ruling out all potential compromises ahead of either sidestepping away from the bargaining table? To us it’s painfully obvious the two sides need the services of an independent mediator to help settle this ugly, ongoing dispute. While it’s anyone’s guess as to whether each side would agree to live with that person’s recommendations, it’s worth a try. Regardless of which side one happens to be on, no one wants to see this whole sorry affair drag on year after year and put the education of our children at risk. - Victoria News

Treasuring a friendship with Santa Over the past 65 years I have received a number of fishing rods and reels from Santa. Somewhere I even have a photograph of me taken on Christmas morning of 1958. I’m standing in front of the Christmas tree holding a new Shakespeare fishing rod and reel. I would have been all of nine years old in that picture. For some reason I’m wearing a Hawaiian shirt. I remember that rod quite well. It was a cream coloured fibreglass rod with an aluminum reel seat and cork handle. The reel was a Shakespeare Mohawk level-wind loaded with pearl handles and green braided line. I was never very good at casting with a level-wind. I’m still not. Oddly enough though, by some quirk of circumstance, I still have that old reel. The following year I received a new Johnson Century closed-face reel. Again from Santa. As I recall, I had been going through all of my father’s Field and Stream magazines for months and there was no doubt in my mind as to which reel I wanted. I could

THE GREAT OUTDOORS James Murray not have been any more pleased with my gift. I also recall that reel turned out to be everything the magazine ads said it would. It was art, form and function – all in one magnificent mechanical creation. By mid-summer we had become a team – poetry in motion. Even as I grew up I continued to receive rods and reels, along with an assortment of other fishing gear for Christmas. More often than not such gifts were from Santa. About 10 years ago I happened to be visiting with Santa in his workshop. Yes, I was on a personal level with the old man with the long white beard. We use to swap stories. Some about fishing, others about life in general.

That particular afternoon we ended up talking about steelheading. I told him how I prefer to use a two-handed spey rod for casting on big rivers. Spey rods have become somewhat trendy as of late, and he did not hesitate to give me a few friendly gibes about that fact. He then proceeded to bring out a rather vintage, 10-foot noodle rod, the kind they used to use with light line and balsa wood floats on big, wide, slow-moving rivers like the Umpqua and Skeena. Spey casting may be old-school, but noodle rods, well you don’t get much more oldschool than that. He took special delight in telling me, in great detail, how he had caught and played a fair number of bright, shiny silver bombers on that old rod. I enjoyed Santa’s company. I think he enjoyed mine. There was something about the old man that you could not help but like. The Santa that I knew was a kind person. He gave freely of himself – not in the material way, but of his time and his stories and his sense of humour. I never once heard him say a mean word about

anything or anyone. Well, except maybe for the government every now and then, but then again, who could blame him? Santa liked people and people genuinely liked him, and when it comes right down to it, if you ask me, that’s not such a bad thing to have people say about you when you’re gone. The Santa that I knew passed away last week. I wonder how many kids sat on his lap over the years and looked up with awe into that smiling face and twinkling eyes. I am grateful I had the privilege to sit with him on a number of wintry nights leading up to Christmas. I got to witness some of those special moments when young children shared their most secret wishes with the one person they truly believed could and would give them what they wished for most – like the time I wished for a Johnson Century closed-face fishing reel. Farewell Noel. Thanks for letting me be your friend. Dedicated to John Noel McClelland, June 4, 1934 to May, 22, 2014.

Government innocent in program violations

FROM THE HILL Colin Mayes also studied this topic and sent a report to the minister of our findings. The department implemented new guidelines and began more rigorous enforcement. Much reporting has been in the news of late, about those who are in violation of the intent of this program. The minister has acted decisively and banned those who have violated the guidelines of the program, and is further investigating unfair labour practices to possibly bring penalties and/ or legal action against offenders. Since the program was implemented, Canadians have been a

priority for job opportunities and that has not changed. Even though there have been violations of the program, remember this might be 1,000 temporary foreign workers of the 360,000 now in Canada. The program serves its purpose. The government did not abuse this program. It was the unscrupulous business practices of a few. It was not the fault of the temporary foreign worker and they

are the victims in these violations. Your government is committed to Canadians first, and is helping Canadians train to equip them for the jobs in demand today. The employers using the program are being asked to submit plans to fill the jobs now being held by temporary foreign workers with Canadians, and to report the terms and conditions of the temporary foreign workers they currently employ.

In 2009, I attended a meeting with the Hotel Association of British Columbia and the Yukon. The association’s main concern was that they could not domestically hire enough housekeepers to prepare for the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver. They needed 8,000 people and were asking our government to help meet this need. The Temporary Foreign Workers Program was established before the Conservatives formed government. However, in recent years, pressure from mostly western businesses has driven the numbers of Temporary Foreign Workers to over 360,000. Two years ago, violations of the intent of the program were uncovered and the minister instructed the department to review the program and tighten the regulations.

SOUTH SHUSWAP Alice with a modern twist

Follow Alice down the rabbit hole as she encounters strange and humorous characters during her adventure in Wonderland. The South Shuswap Children’s Theatre Foundation is presenting two performances of Alice in Wonderland, adapted from the Lewis Carrol classic, with a modern twist. This SSCTF production of Alice In Wonderland includes a cast of 25 local children ages six to 14 who have been working since late 2013 on developing characters and their acting chops. Director Ann Skelhorn may be familiar to local audiences from her work with Shuswap Theatre, including the recent award-winning production of The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged). The first performance will take place Sunday, June 1 at the Shuswap Lake Estates community hall stage in Blind Bay. Doors open at 6 p.m. for a 6:30 performance. The second performance will be at the Shuswap Theatre in Salmon Arm on Sunday, June 8, with the

Monashee range helps define Shuswap

SHUSWAP PASSION Jim Cooperman especially those peaks within the Shuswap watershed. Perhaps one of the most appreciated features of the Monashee Mountains is its ability to trap moisture from the Pacific and thus create consistently high snowpacks that not only supply our lakes and streams with ample water, but also provide some of the best skiing conditions in the province. Whether one enjoys sledding, Nordic skiing, alpine skiing, or backcountry touring, there are plenty of opportunities to find great snow in the Monashees from late fall to spring.   In addition to the high snowpack, all of the moisture trapped by the Monashee Mountains helps to create a type of forest ecosystem that is unique to British Columbia, the inland rainforest. Massive cedar, hemlock and spruce trees, some older than 1,000 years, can be found in these forests, along with species

of ferns, lichens, and shrubs adapted for the cool, very wet climate found in the Shuswap. Fortunately, some of these forest stands have been protected as parks, although most of these giant, ancient trees were turned into lumber due to relentless logging for more than 100 years. One section of the Shuswap Range, the Anstey range, is currently a no-staking mineral reserve due to its extremely unique status. These mountains contain syenite, a rare coarse-grained, intrusive igneous rock similar to granite but without the quartz. As well, there is carbonatite, another rare igneous rock that can also include rare earth metals. Consequently, this portion of the Monashee Mountains has been set aside for research purposes. Most of the igneous minerals, including those that are so important for our advanced societies, were at one time molten liquids that were formed into veins or deposited in layers mixed with other compounds. The most sought after, gold, often eroded and became deposited into creek beds and ended in gold pans or was removed with placer mining. Scattered throughout the Shuswap, as in many

other regions, are veins of quartz, a very commonly found igneous mineral. Typically missing throughout the Shuswap are igneous-formed, granite-type rock formations that climbers prefer, but there are exceptions and many of these areas have become destinations for the local climbing community. An easily accessible example can be found adjacent to the Syphon Creek waterfall in Gleneden, where there are grano-diorite cliffs that have many bolted routes. Other areas include Kault Hill, Haines Creek near Silver Creek and a massive rock face on the east side of Adams Lake. It is also rare to find sedimentary rock like limestone, shale and sandstone in the Shuswap, but once again there are a few exceptions. The famous pillar above Pillar Lake near Falkland, is a 30-metre tall hoodoo of conglomerate sandstone capped with a rock.   It was likely created by erosion from a glacier.  And the gypsum located above Falkland is a lightweight sulfate mineral associated with sedimentary rocks that is deposited from lake or seawater or from ancient volcanic hot springs.

The Shuswap region is defined by its watershed that includes rivers and streams that eventually empty into Shuswap Lake and the South Thompson River. However, it is the Monashee Mountains that actually direct much of this flow of water. These mountains in turn form part of the Columbia Mountain Range that also includes the Selkirks, Purcells, and the Cariboo Mountains. Within the boundaries of the watershed is the Shuswap Range that includes Queest Mountain and lower peaks and ridges. There is also Hunters Range that extends north and south of Mara Mountain. The tallest peak within the Shuswap is Mount English, at 2,701 metres and the second tallest is Mount Fosthall at 2,679 metres. At one time, the Monashees were called the Gold Range, but were renamed Monashee by an early prospector David McIntyre. Considered to be Gaelic for ‘mountain of peace,’ local historian and writer Don Elzer has a new theory, since mountain in Gaelic is actually sliabh, pronounced shleeve, and peace is sith. Elzer believes that Monashee more accurately describes the mythical fairy inhabitants of the island of Mona. This theory corresponds to a late 1800s movement to restore the old Gaelic culture.  The Monashee Mountains extend some 320 kilometres from Valemount in a narrow band all the way into Washington State and are made up of some of the oldest rocks in British Columbia. Unlike the Rocky Mountains, which are primarily made of sedimentary rock, the Monashees are mostly metamorphic rock, with some bands of granite or igneous rock. And while we often think of most mountain tops as difficult to access except by the most experienced climbers, most Monashee peaks are relatively easy to access by hiking or even driving,

Impressed by industrial park MAYOR’S MESSAGE Nancy Cooper Last week I attended the open house and tour of the ADAM Integrated facility located in our Industrial Park. When ADAM decided to move their operations to British Columbia they chose to make Salmon Arm their home. They have discovered what so many of us already know – Salmon Arm is amazing. After talking to people who attended this same open house, I found that not only were they impressed with the trades, technology and innovation at the ADAM Integrated facilities, but that many of them had no idea there were businesses of this nature in Salmon Arm.

In response, I decided to write about our local industries and the advantages of locating in Salmon Arm. First of all our Salmon Arm Industrial Park is home to 81 growing businesses each of them creating different products and services, many of which are being exported around the world.  These businesses service the oil and gas industry, forestry, construction and mining sectors.  Examples of products being manufactured in Salmon Arm include trusses, plastics, sawmill equipment, recycled rubber surfaces, retractable exterior blinds, metal fabrication and so much more.  Advantages of being in Salmon Arm include: our location on the Trans-Canada Highway almost exactly half-way between the major centres of Vancouver to the east, Calgary to the west and south to the U.S. border; the availability of fibre optics allows business to

INFORMATION DESIGNED TO PROMOTE AND ENHANCE YOUR WELLBEING

Do hearing aids really help? There are some very important things we know about hearing. Hearing is necessary for communication and socialization. This human interaction stimulates the brain, and is important for good health and wellbeing. Hearing aids allow this cycle to continue, improving the enjoyment of conversation and encouraging socialization. Advancements in technology make hearing aids more successful in noisy or challenging listening conditions. However, extra listening effort is still required at times. Some tolerance of unpleasant sounds is also necessary at times. These are issues that affect everyone, including those with good hearing. Hearing Aids vary significantly in terms of size, performance, and price. The technology side the instrument is what dictates the price. All hearing aids are digital, and have many components in common. They do however have different operating systems that control how sound is analyzed, altered and amplified. The more sophisticat-

ed, or advanced technology often performs better in difficult conditions such as group babble, or backround noise. There is no such thing as “bad” hearing aids. There are however, hearing aids that are inappropriate, or a poor choice for an individual. It’s always important to consider a person’s specific hearing loss, lifestyle, and expectations. In the world of technology, it’s all about determining what you need, and understanding the benefits and limitations of your purchase. In the realm of hearing aids, this is where a complete hearing assessment and consultation with an Audiologist or Hearing Instrument Practitioner becomes important. What are the real life differences of one technology to the other? Each hearing aid

style and technology has a unique sound quality, but they are all “programmed” for an individual’s specific hearing impairment, and listening comfort. They all perform within the scope of what that specific technology allows. Some hearing instruments are particularly suited to challenging hearing losses, or demanding listening conditions. Others provide a more basic performance for the average hearing loss, in average, quieter listening conditions. Again, one’s needs and expectations should match the style and technology chosen. It’s not unlike buying a car, as those have also become much more technical than ever before. If you choose a small economical car with basic features, but expect it to ride and perform like a luxury vehicle, you may

be disappointed. Today’s hearing aids, being miniature computers, are manipulated by software that allows the clinician to make adjustments. The software is quite different from one manufacturer to the other, and also varies depending on the technology. Some software will allow a certain kind of adjustment when another may not. Advanced instruments have the most programming flexibility, and more features to interpret the environment quickly and accurately . The result is a more complete “game plan” for maintaining the best comfort and understanding throughout the day. This is particularly important for someone who’s environment or communicative needs change rapidly and often. More basic, or “entry level” hearing aids are also excellent technology, but with less features to deal with complicated listening situations. A person’s actual hearing loss always dictates the style and technology available for consideration, as well as their success with a specific device. There are some hear-

ing impaired individuals who will routinely require extra listening effort, even with very advanced hearing aids. This is particularly true when a hearing loss is more severe. This person’s hearing aids are a communicative lifeline, but additional visual cues and other strategies will still be required to help the brain receive the most data possible for interpretation. Remember, hearing and understanding are not the same. It’s not unlike someone with very poor vision who wears glasses, but still struggles to see. As we embrace Better Hearing Month, let’s remember the importance of maintaining good hearing, and the importance of a thorough and timely hearing assessment if things begin to change. Hearing impairment can be far reaching, impacting communication, relationships, social interaction, employment, and general mental health. It’s not something to be ignored. It’s more significant than you think. The road to better hearing is easier than you think! Continued from May 23. Submitted by D’Arcy White, M.A., M.Sc., Registered Audiologist

Regional planning: First Nations and other leaders work together. By Martha Wickett

MARKET NEWS STAFF

Collaboration flowed through the event, both as the theme and as the method for deciding on plans and goals. Last week’s Together Shuswap workshop, formerly Moving Forward Together, brought people from diverse backgrounds together in the same room, but also together in shared purpose and increased understanding. Held at the Adams Lake Recreation and Conference Centre in Chase on May 21 and 22, the workshop expanded on the focus of previous meetings – regional planning and deepening collaboration between participants, both First Nations and others. Bonnie Thomas, a member of the organizing committee along with Craig Duckchief, Dorothy Argent, Janet McClean Senft and Jason Woodman-Simmonds, came away uplifted. “I was completely ecstatic. By the end of the two days – I’m really emotional about this, it’s something my mother always wanted, she wanted all the people to come together regardless of your background, from

I guess for me, that was an accomplishment.” At last June’s workshop held at Quaaout Lodge, a list of ‘championed’ activities was created, after participants were asked if they’d like to champion an activity dealing with an issue. A list of 26 was eventually refined to a total of 16. Issues ranged from planning regional transportation to meet diverse needs, to building a regional artist data base and network of aboriginal artists, to improving delivery of health-care

services in the Shuswap. Volunteers would sign up if the topic was one they wished to tackle. Those 16 groups are ongoing and meet quarterly on their chosen initiatives. McClean Senft said she envisions all kinds of great results. She said as someone with a passion for food security issues, she can’t wait until all the groups working on related food issues begin to develop a way of working collaboratively toward local food production, nutrition access and food security programming. Thomas was a moderator of one of the break-out groups at the workshop, where she witnessed how beneficial it is to sit down together. She said one non-

native person was concerned about offending anyone and wanted to know what term to use: aboriginal, First Nations, indigenous. “That was an honest statement,” observed Thomas, noting she also heard from a person from the Columbia Shuswap Regional District that there should be an aboriginal person at the table during regional discussions, and that they were at the workshop to learn. “For me, it was really, really, one of the most amazing experiences I’ve had in a very long time.” She said she was also very inspired by the First Nations presenters, as were many people, judging by general comments from others.

Wednesday morning’s keynote speech came from Chief Wayne Christian of the Splatsin Indian Band, on Truth,

Co-operative approach beneficial Continued from pg. 18 Reconciliation and Beyond. He gave an overview of the history of legislation and policies of assimilation and genocide that First Nations have survived, providing a lens on what communities are facing but also how they want to work together. He gave an example of how, when he was younger, signs directed that “no dogs, no Indians,” were allowed inside stores. He spoke about moving forward by bringing back First Nations laws and principles to First Nations communities. Duckchief noted, regarding truth and reconciliation, it’s important to acknowledge wrongs and that they won’t be dealt with overnight because they’ve been carried out over a long period of time. “Finding a meaningful solution requires getting over that psychological trauma.” Duckchief presented a creation story at the workshop. He explained he has been thinking about how important First Nations oral stories have been as a way of record-keeping and knowledge-sharing, and how they have emphasized relationships with land, water and animals. He said although they have been seen by some as simplistic and their importance has been dismissed in the past, they are important to sustain-

ability and long-term planning. Chief Nelson Leon of the Adams Lake Indian Band also gave an inspiring speech, his on collaboration. He mentioned its many benefits, including the ability to achieve a larger goal than as an individual, as well as fostering diversity, productivity and profitability. Leon described the foundations of good collaboration, which included clear goals, clear decision making, celebrating accomplishments, good leadership, managing conflict, putting in time and energy and, most importantly, commitment. He said people won’t always get along, but commitment will keep people at the table, particularly if everyone gets a chance to be heard. “My power is to empower others without feeling fear for my own. To do that, you empower, inspire, allow them a voice.” He said, smiling, that he’s learned from a lot of failed collaborations. “I’ve learned a thousand ways how not to do something.” On a panel Thursday focusing on New Models of Collaboration between Governments,

was Coun. David Lepsoe from the Village of Chase. He noted that Couns. Rick Berrigan and Rod Crowe from Chase were also in attendance at the workshop.

n Workshop organizers Bonnie Thomas and Craig Duckchief discuss workshop details. He said Chase council created a First Nations liaison position, which he is filling, and he has participated in a number of events and activities, such as the Pulling Together canoe journey, setting up protocol agreements and the hanging of the Secwepemc flag in the Art Holding Arena. Lepsoe spoke about taking his walks up the

hill when he is trying to do his problem solving, when “I discovered the problem is, we only meet when there’s a problem.” Also on the panel was Daniel Joe, councillor with the Splatsin band, who spoke of the ongoing collaboration between his band and the City of Enderby. A committee was formed involving two band councillors and two

city councillors, who meet regularly to discuss issues relevant to both entities. One of the catalysts was when the band’s 30,000 sq. ft. convention centre was going up. Joe said he emailed Enderby councillor Brad Case and asked if council was aware of the building. “I was just flabbergasted. They didn’t even know the building was going up and we were going to have to sign service agreements.” The two councils have now collaborated on many projects. “Wondering how to start…? Phone, email, text, ask how can we work together. That’s all it takes. Willingness to work.”

McCALL, INES (nee CAVAZZI) December 3, 1916 - May 13, 2014 Ines McCall (Cavazzi) passed away on May 13, 2014 at Piccadilly Care Center, Salmon Arm, at the age of 97. Ines was predeceased by her husband of 66 years, Win McCall. She will be missed by her brother, Mario, daughter Anne (Clint), son Bob (Lisa), grandchildren Lindsay (Derek), Warren (Cristal), Joel (Laura), Jody, and great grandchildren Tristan, Camryn, Nisa, and Zoe. Ines was born in a log cabin on her parent’s farm on what is now the Ajax Mine Property, south of Kamloops. She and husband Win operated McCall’s Grocery, a corner grocery store in Kamloops until they moved to Salmon Arm to open the Super Value. Many of Ines’ fondest memories were of the summers she spent at their cabin on the Shuswap Lake, golfing with husband Win, and of the time they operated a small farm in Sorrento. Ines & Win spent many winters in California and Arizona escaping the cold. Ines loved gardening and spent many happy hours cultivating both her flowers and vegetables. Ines requested that no service be held. The family will gather at a later time to celebrate her life. The family wishes to thank all the caregivers at Piccadilly Care Center that helped Ines in her later years. In lieu of flowers those that wish can make a donation to the Shuswap Hospital Foundation, Box 265, Salmon Arm, BC VIE 4N3 Arrangements are in the care of Bowers Funeral Home in Salmon Arm. Online condolences may be sent through Ines’ obituary at www.bowersfuneralservice.com STAINSBY, CECILY

Cecily Stainsby (nee White) passed peacefully on Wednesday morning, May 21, 2014 at the Hillside Village residence with her family by her side. Cec was born the third youngest of thirteen children on September 24, 1925 at Exeter, NSW, Australia. She is survived by one sister, Hester, of Tamworth, NSW, Australia. Cec leaves behind her children, Ken, Brian, Susan and Hugh and her grandchildren, Shannon, Christopher, Drew, Scott, Hunter, Tovah and Paul. All will miss her very much but are sustained by the strength, good humour and dignity by which she lived her life to the end. Although Cec lived in Canada since the fifties, part of her heart was always in Australia. The family would like to thank the wonderful staff at Hillside Village and Dr. Chris Weicker who cared for Cec with such love. A Celebration of Life will be held at Bowers Funeral Chapel, Salmon Arm, BC (440 10th St SW) at 11:00 am May 31st, 2014. In lieu of flowers, a donation to the Canadian Cancer Society or the Heart and Stroke Foundation would remember the service and love which guided Cec’s life.

He was born in Vancouver on July 4, 1934 and was predeceased by his parents Grace Hornosty and Robert McClelland. He is survived by his loving wife Lila of 54 years, son Bobby (Reg) McClelland, son Wayne (Lisa) McClelland, granddaughter Kirsten McClelland, great granddaughter Khyra McClelland, brother Aaron (Terry) McClelland and family, brother and sister-in-law Fred (Kathy) Schuhart and family, daughter Susan (Gord) Moscrip and family, son Terry Hilton and family as well as other relatives, dear friends and his faithful furry friend, Classy. He will be remembered for his many years of hard work in the printing industry, having his own print shop “Noel’s Printing”, and his dedication to the peoples around the world at Christmastime. In 2000 retiring to the Shuswap, he continued spreading his Christmas cheer selflessly until his failing health would not allow him to continue. His many other interests included fishing, hunting, boating, camping and spending time on his ham radio. He will be greatly missed; leaving a legacy behind that will have an impact on many. Special thanks to Dr. Breugem and staff, WeCare, Interior Health, Interior Respiratory Services, all the Shuswap Hospital staff, Shopper’s Drug Mart Pharmacy, Lakeside Medical Supplies and all the friends and neighbours. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations in Noel’s name may be made to the Shuswap Hospital Foundation, PO Box 265, Salmon Arm, BC, V1E 4N3.

WALTERS, ERIC HUBERT Eric Hubert Walters, born April 30th, 1932 in Llandeilo, Wales passed away surrounded by loved ones on Sunday May 18, 2014 at Mt. Ida Mews. Eric is predeceased by his, wife, Martha “Mati” (2007) and two of his sons David (2003) and Richard (2009). He is survived by his sons Glyn (Meghan), Gwilym (Tara) and Alun, and by five grandchildren, Ethan, Gavin, Laurel, Mati and Alice. Eric graduated from the University of Wales in Aberystwyth in 1954. He began his teaching career in England where he met his future wife Mati. Together they immigrated to Canada and married upon arrival in Vancouver in December of 1958. After teaching stops in Prince Rupert, Port Alberni and one year back in Epping England, Eric and Mati settled in Salmon Arm in the fall of 1964 where they started their family and Eric began teaching at Salmon Arm Senior Secondary in Mathematics and Physics. After obtaining his Masters Degree he began his career in education administration as the Vice Principal at Eagle River Secondary in Sicamous and was later promoted to Principal. Eric stayed at Eagle River until 1984 at which point he moved to the School District #83 Office as first District Principal and then as Director of Student Support Services. Eric stayed on at the School District until 1989 at which point he moved on to teaching Mathematics at the Okanagan College campuses in Salmon Arm and Vernon. Eric retired from his teaching career in 1994. Growing up in Wales Eric was active in sports including cricket and his much loved rugby. He instilled his love of sports in his five sons. Their backyard in Salmon Arm, known as “The Patch” in winter months was often the sight of epic soccer, football, rugby, baseball and hockey games where Eric was frequently in the thick of things. The dedication Eric showed to his family and teaching career carried over onto the soccer pitch. He was instrumental in the development of Salmon Arm Minor Soccer, as well as the organization of the Shuswap Men’s Soccer League and the long running August Long Weekend Soccer Tournament. His sons carried on his love of sport and also became actively involved in the participation and organization of soccer in Salmon Arm. Eric was honored in 2011 as a local sports hero by Sport BC and just recently there was an announcement that one of the soccer fields in Salmon Arm will be named “Walters Field”. Eric Walters was dedicated to his students, community and most of all his family. He will be greatly missed. A memorial service will be held on June 14, 2014 at 1:00pm at the 5th Avenue Seniors’ Centre (170 5th Ave, SE, Salmon Arm, BC). In lieu of flowers donations can be made to a community organization of choice. On line condolences may be sent to Eric’s obituary at www.bowersfuneralservice.com Arrangements are in the care of Bowers Funeral Home and Crematorium, Salmon Arm, BC

Landscaping

Perfect trees for small gardens

G

ood gardeners know that a tree is the key element in a perfect yard. The tree is a structural anchor in the space, and other plants are chosen and placed in accordance with it. For your yard, take the time to choose the right species, taking into consideration the spread of the tree, the colour of its leaves, and its blossoms or seed pods. The landscape created by these choices will be there for a long time to come — a tree can live up to 100 years, or even more if it has sufficient light and regular watering. Choose an unob-

structed site so that your tree can be seen from different angles. The next step is to choose a species that won’t take up too much space. Be sure to ask about the dimensions, at full maturity, of the tree you wish to purchase. Even though your little seedling may fit into the trunk of your car when you take it home, 20 years from now it might tower over the roof of your house, making it a poor choice for a small yard. Because new homes seem to be getting bigger and bigger, while the lots they are built on are getting

smaller and smaller, it is crucial to plan the layout of your yard and analyze the available space. Here are some varieties of trees suitable for small spaces: • Amur maple (Acer tataricum ginnala) • Apple tree (Malus) • Weeping mulberry (Morus alba “pendula”) • Downy serviceberry (Amelanchier arborea) • Japanese tree lilac (Syringa reticulata) • Toba hawthorn (Crataegus xmordenensis toba)

There is a wide variety of trees available, even for small yards.

Eco-friendly renovations are better for your health

You can avoid health-endangering chemical pollutants by opting for eco-friendly products.

aving a good environmental conscience sometimes means asking yourself a few questions when the time comes to do work around the house. Fortunately, manufacturers and retailers have begun to understand that the general public is concerned about the environment and have made many eco-friendly products and solutions available. When doing home improvement jobs, it is now possible to make sensible choices that won’t compromise the health of your family. The first thing to do for a more eco-friendly home is to improve its energy efficiency. Cut-

ting back on heat and air-conditioning requirements is a green choice that will also reduce your gas or electric bill. After carrying out tests to detect where air and heat are escaping, a specialist can help you decide where insulation can increase your efficiency and whether a new roof, windows, doors, or floor coverings can have an impact.

inside or outside the home, you can now opt for recycled products or those that have been designed using fewer or even no toxic products. Choose natural materials wherever possible, such as real wood, and ensure that it is of good quality. And be sure to use house paint that is free of volatile organic compounds to ensure better air quality in the home.

Installing faucets that limit water wastage in the kitchen and bathroom is also a priority. By choosing eco-friendly materials for the cabinets and vanities, you can avoid being exposed to toxic products released when certain conditions are present, such as high humidity levels in bathrooms.
