B.C. teachers have voted in favour of a full walkout to put maximum pressure on the provincial government, but their union did not immediately move to issue 72-hour strike notice. The teachers’ union now says Tuesday, June 17 would be the earliest date that teachers will walk off the job. The B.C. Teachers’ Federation must give three days’ notice before going on strike, but had not done so by Wednesday morning. The result of the vote, conducted Monday and Tuesday, was 86 per cent in favour, or 28,809 out of 33,387 ballots cast. B.C. Teachers Federation president Jim Iker called it a “very strong message” to the province. “So far this government has come to the table empty-handed, it’s time to change that,” Iker said Tuesday night. He said while teachers are prepared to go to a full-scale strike, that’s “a decision we never take lightly” and would depend on how talks proceed with the provincial government. “You’ve got to remain hopeful that government has learned from the past mistakes they’ve made,” said Iker, who referred to the union’s legal battle with the province over class size and composition and “the government’s chaotic lockout.” A full strike would close elementary and middle schools – parents will be advised to make child care arrangements if necessary – while secondary schools would be open only to conduct exams for Grade 10 to 12 students. The lack of $50-a-day strike pay – the BCTF’s strike fund was expected to be exhausted at the end of this week – was apparently a non-issue for most teachers. Sooke Teachers Association president Ian Johnston said the strike vote was held mainly to See LRB on page 2

Input on trustee reductions sought By Tracy Hughes

MARKET NEWS STAFF

School District #83 is considering options for whether to reduce the number of board trustees from nine to seven, but based on comments at Tuesday night’s board meeting, the decision may not be made in time for the November 2014 elections. The board will be proceeding with a public meeting on Monday, June 23 to obtain public input on the issue. In the wake of budget cutting, trustees committed to review their own numbers as the board is one of the largest in the province. Cutting two trustees would save approximately $25,000 per year. The meeting will be held at 7 p.m. in the District Education Centre. They will review potential options for trustee reductions

and hear submissions on the topic. Some possibilities include amalgamating North Shuswap with Carlin/Sorrento, combining Enderby and Sicamous or removing one trustee from Armstong’s current two members. Other thoughts included having three trustees for Salmon Arm and two for an expanded Armstrong/Spallumcheen/Deep Creek and Ranchero area. Discussion at Tuesday night’s regular meeting had many trustees concerned about the tight timeline for consultation before the end of June in order to get the required approvals from the Ministry of Education in time for the fall election. “We aren’t having meetings all over the district but just one centralized meeting,” said Chris

Coers, Enderby trustee. “I’m not worried about getting feedback from our partner groups and the system because we all have our connections, but I am concerned that without having those community meetings and discussions, it will be really hard to get the thoughts of Mr. and Mrs. Taxpayer, the people who we represent.” Trustee Michel Saab also suggested adding a question about possible trustee reductions to the November election ballot, as a non-binding gauge of public opinion. He and other trustees felt the current timeline was too short. “We should not sacrifice quality for expedience.” The board will make a decision on how to proceed after the June 23 meeting.

Wolf has further perfected the form, function and sheer durability of the 30” Gas Range. Wolf Gas ranges feature dual-stacked burners for precise control from the highest highs to the lowest lows. The top-tier burner delivers maximum heat transfer at higher settings, while the lower-tier allows for more controlled simmering and melting without scorching.

LRB to rule on exams, grades as essential services increase pressure on the government. “It’s more the signal it sends to government; how strong is our resolve. That’s really what it’s all about,” he said. The Labour Relations Board was to hear arguments Wednesday on the province’s application to declare exams and final grades an essential service in the event of a full strike. The province has also pledged to end its partial lockout of teachers at the end of the school year to en-

parents and students would all rather finish the school year on a positive note, adding it took just five days of hard bargaining to secure a new contract for school support staff. The province has offered a $1,200 signing bonus if teachers accept its proposal of 7.25 per cent in wage increases over six years by June 30. The BCTF’s latest proposal is for increases totaling 9.75 per cent over four years, plus cost-of-living adjustments in each year tied to inflation. The two sides have differing estimates of the compounded grand

total of the union’s wage demand –  the BCTF estimates it at 12.75 per cent over four years, while BCPSEA pegs it at 14.7 per cent and says other non-wage compensation costs will further increase the bill, perhaps beyond 19 per cent. “The BCTF leadership needs to come to the table with realistic expectations and a willingness to engage in meaningful bargaining,” Fassbender said. “Teachers deserve a raise but their total compensation demands are about four times more than other recent settlements.”

Celebrate new CD with The Elk Tribe

TAKE THE

The Shuswap Community Foundation is inviting residents of the Shuswap region to have their voices heard! As part of the Vital Signs report, the Foundation is seeking valued input from local residents on an array of questions that will help grade and define the most important issues we face in our region. This survey offers everyone the opportunity to contribute to the future of the Shuswap as a place to live, learn, work and grow. Three questions to keep in mind as you respond to the survey are: 1. When you picture a healthy, connected community, what stands out? 2. What is our community doing well? What is working? What do you love about our community? 3. Where are the opportunities for improvement? In addition to detailed statistical analysis and data mining by a lead researcher, this valuable report will provide a subjective sense of our community’s vitality as it relates to 10 key issue areas.

The lush Shuswap landscape and love for their families and friends are the fodder members of The Elk Tribe use to fuel their songs. “Every song has deep meaning; we never randomly write about nothing,” says 22-year-old Zach Harder, the oldest of three brothers who plays acoustic guitar, harmonica, kick-drum and tambourine. Zach’s 21-year-old brother Brayden Harder, writes many of the lyrics and plays bass. Younger brother Levi Harder contributes lead vocals, rhythm and guitar, while Zach’s fiancée, Amanda Robbins, is lead vocalist. Rounding out the fab folk sound is David McMaster on violin and mandolin. Like the music, the title of the group’s new CD, Over Mountains and Meadows, refers to where the brothers grew up in White Lake. “A lot of it has to do with relationships between the brothers and lots of stories to do with places we’ve been and experiences we’ve shared,” says Zach. “We don’t sit in a room and say, ‘let’s write a song.’ Somebody brings an idea and we build off that, each giving our own unique taste to it.” One of the cuts, Willow Tree, is about a tree at their Grandma’s house where they used to play. “It had the perfect number of branches and we climbed it and played with our cousins,” said Zach. “It’s tied into a kind of love story. The tree has become a symbol for love.” Zach says the brothers are very close and that rehearsals are just like a group of friends coming together to jam. “And we’re just lucky people like the music,” he says. The album, the result of eight months of writing and recording, was mastered by Toronto’s João Carvalho, who has also worked for Feist, The Sheepdogs and Barenaked Ladies. The Elk Tribe is lining up a number of gigs, including an appearance at Wednesday on the Wharf July 16. But the group is getting the summer rolling with a CD release party at 7:30 p.m. Friday, June 20 at Shuswap Theatre. And the fun-loving, “hillbillies” that are Seal Skull Hammer will open the show. Doors open at 7 and refreshments will be provided. Tickets at $15 are available at the Shuswap Pie Company, Synergy Studio or email theelktribe@ gmail.com.

OPINION Camping valuable for encouraging disconnect Can there be anything more Canadian than camping? Getting out into the great outdoors, setting up camp and enjoying the solitude just seems like a long thread in the fabric of our culture. It’s a pastime many people grew up with. Families did it together and often the kids were enrolled in either Boy Scouts or Girl Guides, where camping skills were routinely taught and practised. The enjoyment of the outdoors, and how you can survive comfortably in it, has been passed down from generation to generation. That’s why it seems a little sad that National Parks staff run programs to teach people how to do it. It’s a little sad, but not all that surprising. More and more people are filling Canadian cities and to a certain degree, going camping might not have the same appeal as it once had. It’s not necessarily an urban-versus-rural issue — either you enjoy camping, or you don’t. Taking in nature from afar deprives a person of a closer connection with the outdoors and the opportunity to decompress and disconnect from the world for a short time. There can be nothing more rewarding to be out of cell range and left to your own skills and know-how to survive in the wild — even if that wild is a groomed provincial campsite that you can drive into. It’s true that for some people, disconnection from the world leaves them feeling nervous, vulnerable or simply cut off from their community. That distance can be enough to discourage some from taking the step into the great outdoors. But like many things that are unfamiliar, they just need to be practised. Soon, packing up for a camping trip will become, if not second nature, then at least less of a burden, with thoughts of the relaxation ahead motivating and inspiring you. It’s far better to accept that some people don’t have outdoor skills and need those lessons to improve their outlook when they decide the time is right to go camping. -Victoria News

Time spent fishing with family... priceless You know what I’d really like to see – one of those MasterCard ads that you see on television showing the cost of a couple of rods and reels and some lures, and then the voiceover would say something like “and time spent fishing with your family … priceless.” I will always be grateful for all the summer afternoons my father spent fishing with us kids, sitting with us out in a boat on a lake somewhere. Back then, it didn’t really cost him very much to take us fishing. It still doesn’t cost all that much. Even nowadays you can buy a decent quality rod and reel outfit for around $60 to $75 that will cast properly, handle a fair-sized fish and stand up to years of use. When you’re buying a rod and reel for a child, regardless of their age, buy something that you would be willing to use yourself. There is no point in buying something that won’t work properly. If they can’t cast with it, they won’t catch fish and it won’t take long for them to lose interest in

THE GREAT OUTDOORS James Murray the whole thing. Once they are into the whole fishing thing, it won’t take long for them to also want their own tackle box. A simple plastic, twotray box doesn’t cost a lot, and there is a real sense of pride in ownership that comes with having your own tackle box with all your own lures in it. I probably still have mine somewhere, and it’s a good 55 or so years old now. If money is an issue, you can often find decent rods and reels at yard sales. Just make sure the rod is intact and the reel is in proper working order. Then all you’ll have to do is re-spool the reel with fresh line. Once you have attained a

rod and reel set up for your child (children) and before you ever head out fishing, take them out to a field somewhere and let them practise casting until they get the hang of it. The mantra for teaching a child to cast is “finger, line, bail – cast, release.” To start, have them slip their first finger under the line and lift it up so the line is pressed between their finger and the cork of the reel seat. With their free hand, they should get used to cocking the bail back (that loopy thingamajig that helps wind in the line) before arcing the rod forward through the air. Finger, line, bail. Then explain the key to casting is releasing their finger from the line just before the rod tip points to where they want the line and lure to go. Finger, line, bail – cast, release. It will take a little practice, but before long, they’ll get the hang of it, and then, you will all be ready to head out. The only other things you’ll need to get for each child is a lifejacket, a widebrimmed hat, and maybe,

a cool pair of polarized sunglasses. Whether fishing from a boat or along the banks of a stream, each child should have, and most importantly, wear a weight and size appropriate lifejacket. It is also important to keep in mind when taking kids fishing, that all they’re really interested in is catching fish. Quantity not quality – that’s the name of the game. When you’re planning your first couple of fishing trips with kids, it is a good idea to head for some place relatively close to home – less travelling time and more fishing time. Like I said, most kids would rather catch a whole mess of small fish than one big one. And above all else, be prepared to spend most, if not all of your time, untangling lines and putting worms on the end of hooks. But remember, time spent fishing with your family … that really is priceless.

Respect needed for nature James Murray truly “outdoes” himself in two columns (“Lured by quality of a bygone era” and “Family fishing weekend approaches” - Shuswap Market News, March 21 and June 6.) Well – “outdoes” himself, in prolonging outdated attitudes and beliefs of that “bygone era” anyway! The fishing gear column – describing old, glass-eyed wooden plugs, was beautifully nostalgic – with names of old lures, like the Chubb Creek Minnow.

As a youngster, I knew that name well, but growing up, I learned to relate to all of nature – not in terms of domination and exploitation – but instead, in terms of respect. Ironically, James says it all when he describes the ‘new’ lures by their aggressive, nature-dominating names like Killer Crank Baits, Buzz Bombs and Hawg Busters. His take on these current, aggressive names is shockingly correct: “...it’s almost as if they are at war with nature

itself.” You’ve nailed it James, that’s exactly what they are – at war with nature. Thanks for connecting those dots! Through incessant Fishing Derby promotions, James extols the presumed apple-pie innocence of families and the public celebrating their dominance and disrespect for nature and its aquatic creatures. (We await James’ explanation of how a nature-dominating event – like fishing derbies – can possibly foster a

respect for nature, by killing it. Surely, in the 21st century, it must be obvious that we are part of an ancient continuum linking all life on Earth? Unfortunately, for much of our recorded history, we have insisted that we are fundamentally separate from all other living things, making us superior and having entitlement over the whole natural world. The evidence is clear: we aren’t, and we haven’t.

Several groups marked Invasive Species Week by pulling yellow flag iris stems from Little White Lake. The White Lake Stewardship Group, Shuswap Trail Alliance and the Columbia Shuswap Invasive Species Society partnered for this event, which included some 20 people, multiple canoes, kayaks and waders to clean up areas infested with yellow flag iris, a wetland aquatic plant. Two researchers from TRU who are investigating the control of yellow flag iris attended, as well as a BC Parks Ranger. “This was our third year at trying to get

n Little White Lake residents Carmen and Troy Massey return to dock with a large harvest of yellow flag iris, an invasive species that chokes out native plants and changes lake ecology. rid of them, so instead of trying to dig them up, we are cutting the heads off,” says Little White Lake resident Carmen Massey, who notes that the digging process often released a little piece of the

plant into the water, allowing rhizomes to escape. A small sliver of a rhizome can grow into a new plant, plants that are poisonous and can cause skin irritation. Massey says cutting

off the heads will prevent the plants from setting seed and keeps them from getting sunlight. “We’re hoping the native cattails and bullrushes will thrive and push the iris back.”

SEAS celebrates 25 years of environmental activism

ShuSwAp pASSion Jim Cooperman The Shuswap Environmental Action Society (SEAS) recently celebrated its 25th anniversary with a party that included some great local live music. I helped form SEAS with local activists who had been involved with other local advocacy groups, including the Shuswap Nuclear Action Group, the Shuswap-Thompson River Research and Development Association, and the Shuswap Recycling Society. At the inaugural meeting in February, 1989, I gave a short speech that included these thoughts, “We are all sick of hearing how we live in a throw-away society, how our forests are being clear-cut at double the rate that they are growing back, how our lakes and rivers are dying from pollution, how our food is full of chemicals that cause cancer and how our governments respond only when the prob-

lems reach epidemic proportions. We want to find out how these global problems relate to us here. We hear on the news how poorly the B.C. forests are being managed, but what we need to find out is what forestry problems exist here in the Shuswap. We need answers, we need to spread the word, we need to take action and we have to fight from the grassroots level up.” It did not take long after incorporation for the fledgling society to begin taking action. In just its first year, SEAS sponsored a well-attended forestry workshop that included a field trip to recent Larch Hills clearcuts with forest service staff and a local sawmill forester. A very successful Earth Day event at the community centre with speakers, displays and a dance band raised significant funds to publish an educational newspaper, the Shuswap Eco-Watch, with articles on waste dumps, forestry, pesticides, radon gas, recycling, and water quality, an issue that continues to be a major concern. For the next few years, SEAS focused on developing a sustainable stewardship plan that further

evolved into advocacy efforts to improve forestry practices, promote wilderness conservation and push for land use planning. Two more EcoWatch newspapers were published with colour satellite photos showing where logging was proposed, followed by a series of newspaper columns promoting park creation. Map brochures were published to encourage the public to visit the endangered wilderness areas that needed protection and a video was made called Shuswap Wild with spectacular photography including aerial scenes. Land use planning began in Kamloops in 1992, which, after three years, resulted in new parks in the Adams Lake area in addition to many others in that region. Finally in 1995, land use planning began in the Okanagan Shuswap, and SEAS conservation efforts evolved from advocacy to process and finally negotiations. The result was 25,000 hectares of new parks, including the Upper Seymour River rainforest and the magnificent Anstey Arm - Hunakwa Lake wilderness area. Additionally, thousands of hectares of old growth

forest were set aside and there was direction for vastly improved forest management to better protect non-timber forest values. In an effort to advocate for lowering the rate of logging, SEAS produced a spatial timber supply analysis in 1994 that clearly showed how there would be little intact forest left after 17 years. The rate of cut was never decreased, which likely contributed to the loss of this region’s major sawmill in Canoe a few years ago. In 2008, the successful effort to halt the proposed marina and condo development near the mouth of the Adams River resulted in national media coverage. And while we were unable to see the property purchased by the provincial government to be added to Roderick Haig-Brown Park, the current plan for the Cottonwoods Campground includes public access to the beach, restoration of significant fish habitat, removal of the buoys, and a continuation of RV camping. After SEAS helped change the map of the Shuswap through the creation of new parks, in 2010 it worked with many diverse partners including all levels of

government to produce the first map of the Shuswap watershed in a poster format. Over the 25 years, SEAS has sponsored countless forums on many issues, including lake water quality, pesticides, climate change, watershed management and the tar sands and pipelines. It helped initiate the regional district parks system and has investigated the impacts of poor logging practices that resulted in numerous debris torrents that have devastated local infrastructure. After 25 years, SEAS has left an impressive legacy of new parks and improved environmental protection measures.

New stop sign on Lakeshore Annual General Motorists and pedestrians who haven’t liked navigating the intersection of Lakeshore Drive and Shuswap Street are getting some relief. On Tuesday, the city

put up a four-way stop, including a stop sign for the west entrance to the downtown Askew’s parking lot, to make traffic flow more smoothly and safely.

Meeting

Rob Niewenhuizen, the city’s director of engineering and public works, said the configuration is similar to the four-way stop added at Ross Street and Lakeshore Drive.

Strong season for junior rugby Another wave hit the North Okanagn Junior Golds Rugby team in Kelowna as the season ended in May; this time it was a wave of large bodies from Kelowna Secondary School Grade 10 Rugby team. Each player seemed to be taller and have 20 to 30 pounds on the Golds. KSS had crushed each team in their league handily by 30 or more points. In the pre-game warm up, the Golds were looking at how big KSS was and already starting to worry. Right from the kickoff, KSS came storming at the Golds, thinking they were going to score in the first five minutes as they had done to every other team, but they were wrong. Tackling left and right, grabbing legs not bodies, the Jr. Golds did not let KSS score. The Golds were throwing themselves at the KSS players and stopping KSS dead in their tracks. KSS coaches were getting hoarse as they had never expected the Golds to stop them so easily and get the ball back and run forward, attacking the KSS goal line again. Defending was not KSS’s strong point and SAS began to capitalize on strength and effort. Jimmy Picul stopped their 250-pound #8 going blind side as he tried to bowl Picul over.

Devin Steiner, Ryder Bland and Noah Dies hit many rucks, driving back two and three players each time. Josh Cline and Nic Ough in the front row were easily outweighed by the behemoth KSS players and played a huge game of finesse and strength against the wall of KSS flesh. KSS was successful in shutting down key SAS Jr. Golds players on different plays. SAS coach Geoff Power was most pleased as the rolling maul off of a lineout gained 30 yards into the KSS end. A few penalty kicks for

goal might have made a little difference in the game; however, this was the toughest physical match the Jr. Golds had ever played. A strong season finished with the junior rugby awards being handed out to various players: level of com-

mitment to the sport, Cameron Hansen and Jimmy Picul; most immproved were Tyson Chamberlain and Nic Ough; best backs were Cody Jordan and Eric ‘the’ Bruce; best forward was Adam Fiebelkorn, MVP was Jase Robert.

POSTMA, NICOLAAS HERONIMUS “NICK” Nov. 24, 1941 - June 3, 2014 We are saddened to announce the passing of Nicolaas (Klaas) Heronimus Postma on June 03, 2014.  He left us peacefully in his home surrounded by his family.  He fought a brief but courageous battle with cancer.  This battle, however, was not to be won and he accepted his path with great dignity. Nick was born in Doniaga, Frysland, The Netherlands on November 24, 1941, number 9 of 12 children born to Frans and Grietje Postma.  He emigrated to Canada when he was 23 and although he maintained strong ties to his family and native land, Canada became his true home.  He grew up on a dairy farm at a time when you used horses to plough the field and milked your cows by hand working hard was second nature to him.  He was a talented and meticulous builder of homes and farms, but also, at heart, a farmer and a gardener.  Easy testament to this is the stunning home he built and lived in with his wife Nancy, the artfully landscaped property, his ridiculously abundant garden and his beloved Friesian horses.   He was an enthusiastic and animated teller of tales, and loved a good practical joke. In his younger years he was an accomplished athlete, excelling in running and soccer.  When he moved up to the Shuswap he earned the nickname “Hot-foot Postma” by running circles around his opponents and prolific goal scoring.  He remained active, fit and busy right up until the onset of his cancer.  He brought his family to Gardom Lake in 1976.  Here, he helped create the same strong community ties that defined his youth. He was always willing to help any in need, a generosity of spirit that was paid back tenfold by his friends and neighbours during his long months of treatment in Vancouver.  His life was too big and colourful to summarize in these few sentences.  However his legacy of hard work, easy play and generosity to family and friends will be long remembered by all the many lives he touched. He was beloved by all of his siblings.  He is predeceased by his brothers Theo and Jappy, and oldest sister Mieke.  He is survived by sisters Akke, Jantsje, Geertje, Sippy (Cecile) and Afke, and brothers Huite (Harry), Epke and Ron. He will be deeply missed by his wife Nancy, stepdaughters Ashley and Tiffany, and his children Ross, Lora and Kristy as well as his 7 grandchildren. Mass of Christian Burial will be held on Saturday June 21st at 10:00 a.m. at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Salmon Arm with Father George LaGrange OMI Celebrant. A reception will be held at noon at their beautiful home that he built at #800 Gardom Lake Road.  All who knew and loved Nick are welcome. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations in Nick’s name may be made to the BC Cancer Agency or Salvation Army. Nei in slimme sykje is ferstoarn us dappere, optimistyske en altyd fleurige Klass (Nick). Arrangements entrusted to Fischer’s Funeral Services & Crematorium Ltd., Salmon Arm, (250) 833-1129. Email condolences and share memories through Nick’s obituary at www. fischersfuneralservices.com.

JOHN WESLEY GLAMBECK October 3, 1930 - May 5, 2014 It is with deep sadness we announce that John passed away peacefully in Salmon Arm BC with his loving wife Carole Holm by his side. He was born in Calgary, Alberta and raised on the banks of the Bow River. He worked in northern Alberta before returning to Calgary, where he met and married his first wife Eileen. They moved to Peace River and opened Park Esso, then moved to Camrose and opened Glambeck Motors. Moving to Red Deer, they operated a small manufacturing plant. After the death of Eileen, John retired in a home he had built on the shore of Shuswap Lake near Sunnybrae. In 2007 he moved into Salmon Arm with his wife Carole. John was predeceased by his parents Carl and Evelyn Glambeck, his brother Ken, his wife Eileen (nee Palkot) and his daughter Roxanne. He is survived by his sisters Carol (Bill) and Gail; his sons Bruce (Marcella), Alan (Meredith) and daughter Bonny (Dan); grandchildren Tamara, Tiffany, Michael, Justin, Marisa and Nicholas; greatgrandchildren Justice, Bianca, Elijah, Zephaniah and Noah; and Carole’s children Lila and Loral (Derrick), and her 4 grandchildren and 2 greatgrandchildren. In his youth John loved fishing and adventuring in Kananaskis country with his brother. He was a carpenter, gardener and tinkerer who could build, grow, or fix anything; and an entrepreneur who loved being his own boss. He was very philosophical and had a positive outlook on life. John was an avid reader, had a great sense of humour and was very gregarious. He will be missed by everyone whose life he touched. A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday June 21, from 1 to 3pm at the Senior’s Fifth Avenue Activity Centre at 170-5th Ave SE in Salmon Arm, BC. Memorial donations may be made in John’s memory to the Shuswap Hospice Society. Arangements entrusted to Fischer’s Funeral Services & Crematorium Ltd., Salmon Arm (250) 833-1129.

Gate builders revisit structure

n Mayor Nancy Cooper, Katsuo Yamaguchi, Kazuo Yamada, Kaname Itabashi, Doug Pearson and Makoto Sakamoto are ready to place their handprints in cement for a commemorative stone at the Japanese Friendship Gate which recognizes the sister city relationship with Inashiki, Japan. The Japanese men are the original builders of the gate and hold a picture of M. Nagaosa, who recently died. They are watched by Kazuko Sakamoto, who is standing under the shelter of the gate in McGuire Lake Park.

Raising awareness of invasive species Weeds can be more than annoying garden and lawn pests, a point the Columbia Shuswap Invasive Society (CSISS) would like residents to remember during Invasive Species Week. “Invasive species threaten B.C.’s environment, economy and society, including human health,” says CSISS education and outreach officer Robyn Hooper. “However, they can be stopped if we take action now to prevent, detect and manage invasive species.” In recognition of the importance of fighting these plant and animal invaders, the B.C. government has proclaimed June 9 to 15 as Invasive Species Week. For its part, the Columbia Shuswap Invasive Species Society is taking part in a variety of events across the region. “Invasive Species Week is about increasing awareness of the harmful effects of invasive species, preventing their spread, and highlighting our exceptional native biodiversity,” says Hooper. “Some of the priority invasive species in our region include: yellow flag iris, Himalayan orchid/ policeman’s helmet

and various knotweed species.” What can you do for Invasive Species Week? Attend a Grow Me Instead workshop at Hanna and Hanna Orchards from 11 a.m. to noon on Saturday, June 14. Or, learn more about what’s invasive in your backyard and how to stop their spread at www.columbiashuswapinvasives.org, or visit the provincial in-

vasive species week website at http://invasivespeciesweek.com. Another option is to organize a community weed pull in your

area, with support from CSISS. For more information or to book a presentation, contact info@columbiashuswapinvasives.org.

An involved father, a happy child What better time than Father’s Day to celebrate fathers’ involvement with their children? Does your father bless you, or did he bless you, with his engaged presence, his affection, and his support? Then take the time to thank him. Just the opposite, your father was more absent, delegating this aspect of the relationship to your mother? Perhaps Father’s Day is a good opportunity to express your need to know him and to spend more time with him. Studies increasingly demonstrate that a father’s involvement promotes the full development of the child, whether the couple is living together or apart. If the importance of the mother goes without saying, the father’s role has been underestimated for far

too long. Fathers, don’t be afraid to trust yourselves, and mothers, know how to accommodate your husband. He may do things differently than you do, but it’s this complicity that your child needs to grow. In fact, his involvement should start from birth, even though it’s never too late to initiate a closeness between a father and his children. It’s by tending to the baby’s needs, through games, cooing, or rocking comfortingly, that an invisible but very strong bond is created between the newborn and the man who will become his

role model and his security. From this privileged relationship, children will, among other things, learn self-confidence and autonomy, develop their identities as a men and women, and perfect their cognitive abilities and social skills. Thank you to all involved fathers for those precious gifts!

Surprise Dad with the perfect gift! Without really knowing why, men are often harder to please than women. So when Father’s Day comes around, many children, sometimes with Mom’s help, wonder what they can offer that will please the man of the house. Since flowers and chocolates are usually associated with women, and the tie and razor ideas are getting stale, some reflection is needed in order to find THE perfect gift. Little ones can get away with offering a nice craft, an artfully crafted card with a big heart. For older children, the Super Dad certificate and coupons redeemable for a few services are perfectly suitable. But when the passion for crafts and

the pride in helping out start to wane, we have to find something else to offer. Perhaps you should ask yourself, how well do you know your father? If you do, then try to respond to his passions (cooking, astronomy…) and his pleasures (coffee, perfume…); try to remember any needs or wishes he may have expressed lately (replacing a tool, buying a sports item…); or try to complete a set he already owns (books or CDs by a particular author or performer…). Don’t hesitate to surprise him with a rare object you carefully searched for, or take the lead in helping him realize an often-expressed but never-realized wish (for example, music lessons). If you can’t figure out your father, why not opt to share an activity with him: a cultural outing, a sporting event, a meal at a restaurant… It would be an opportunity for sharing and for getting closer that may be more appreciated than many uncertain or boring purchases.

Pooling resources to find doctors Three communities of the Shuswap worked together to recruit family practice physicians and promote Shuswap lifestyle at a Rural Emergency Continuum of Care Conference in Penticton, May 30 and 31. They were Scotch Creek, Blind Bay and Sicamous. Hosting the recruitment booth were Carol Hoffman, representing

North Shuswap Health Centre Society, George Landry, from the South Shuswap Health Services Society, Pam Beech on behalf of the Sicamous Medical Clinic and Michelle Wolff from the Sicamous and District Chamber of Commerce. Sorrento wanted to attend, but was unable to participate at this time. The North Shuswap

Health Centre Society (NSHCS) has been working since 2011 on recruiting a part-time or full-time physician for the health centre in Scotch Creek. In 2011, a physician was wanted to work alongside two family practice physicians already in Scotch Creek, but now in 2014, they need full-time replacement for the retiring

physicians. The community is once again in danger of having no family practice care at the health centre and having to once again travel to Chase, Salmon Arm or Kamloops for their routine health needs. With technical support from the Sicamous and District Chamber of Commerce and the CSRD’s Shuswap Tour-

Taking a chop at the Western Qualifiers For 37 years, Karl Bischoff has been competing in Timbersports – the major league of logger sports – starting back when he was 17 years old. These days his favourite disciplines are the springboard and hot saw, where the athlete is stationary – “because they don’t require any cardio!” Timbersports runs in Bischoff’s family. His son-in-law, Mitch Hewitt, is the 2013 Canadian champion, with

whom he often trains. A nephew has been competing for 10 years and is a former Canadian series champion. Bischoff and Hewitt, who currently reside at Scotch Creek, will join Western Canada’s best Timbersports athletes in Fort Saskatchewan, Alta. for the Stihl Timbersports Western Qualifier on Saturday, June 14. This free public event showcases extreme sport demonstrations by athletes in the Pro, Rookie and

Women’s divisions. Using axes, saws and chainsaws, these powerful athletes compete in six exciting disciplines – Underhand Chop, Standing Block Chop, Spring Board Chop, Single Buck Sawing, Stock Sawing and Hot Saw. “It’s a very pure sport – just you, an axe and a piece of wood,” says Bischoff.  “But it requires a lot of time and effort to be proficient – it’s not easy to excel.”

The Western Qualifier is where Canada’s best athletes from the Western Division compete for a spot in the Canadian Championships in Toronto, later this summer. You can watch Canadian champion Mitch Hewitt competing in the Spring Board Chop at http://www. youtube.comwatch?v =OIqXTml6Yl4 or the Standing Block Chop at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v= LYF0TpkUTnQ.

Heat welcomes Mainprize as goalie coach The Chase Heat Junior Hockey Club has announced that Shane Mainprize has joined the team staff as goalie coach. The 26-year-old – was raised in Valemount and now calls Kamloops home. He played three years of junior hockey in Grand

Forks, Grand Prairie, Merritt and Prince George (06-08). He was selected as an allstar in two of the three seasons. He then spent two years at Portage College in Alberta (2009-11) prior to two final years at Thompson Rivers College tending goal with the

Wolfpack (2011-13). The young athlete works in the physical education and fitness fields. He has instructed at hockey academies, camps and schools throughout Western Canada as well as assisting minor hockey associations. Heat management

say the energetic, hardworking Mainprize is a welcome addition to the Heat as he will provide valuable expertise and skill improvement to the goalies. He joins head coach Brad Fox and assistant coaches Kurt Torbohm, Casey Patterson and Cody Inkster.

ism materials, the booth attracted significant attention and many inquiries while showcasing the Shuswap’s attributes.

Tipping fees rise for construction waste The Thompson-Nicola Regional District is raising tipping fees for demolition, land-clearing and construction (DLC) waste effective July 1 at all waste facilities in the TNRD. The tipping fees for DLC waste will go from $60 per tonne to $120 per tonne, as per a new bylaw that was adopted by the TNRD board of directors. The bylaw will also see changes to household refuse fees on Jan. 1, 2015, as well as a further increase in DLC fees to $160 per tonne on that same date. The new fee structure will give customers the ability to save money by source-separating DLC waste. A separate lower fee will be applied to select waste streams if they are separated. The lower fees only apply at sites where separate collection areas exist. Please contact the TNRD if you have questions about specific TNRD facilities. TNRD states the fee increases are in step with the user-pay principle adopted in the TNRD Solid Waste Management Plan. The changes will move costs away from the taxpayer and towards the user and are an incentive to source-separate demolition and construction waste, allowing materials to be recycled instead of landfilled.

INFORMATION DESIGNED TO PROMOTE AND ENHANCE YOUR WELLBEING

Summer activities with heart It’s It’s Summer! Summer!

(NC) If you’ve cared for kids during summer break, you know how those ten weeks can stretch out! But summer is also a wonderful time to learn with your kids, in ways that might not normally have time for. Best of all: they can help someone (or something!) in need, and feel really great about it. Here are five activities for all kinds of kids: The entrepreneur: If your kids want to earn money, brainstorm for small business ideas. The classic lemonade stand still

lures many a thirsty family en route from the park. Perhaps a portion of the proceeds can be donated to a charity. Have your children research at least three. The environmental-

ist: Create a waystation for migrating monarch butterflies, whose populations are threatened due to loss of natural habitat on their routes. Visit http://monarchwatch. org/waystations/ to

learn what to plant in your backyard or a nearby abandoned lot. The fundraiser: With FIFA World Cup on this summer, many will have soccer on the brain! Perhaps your resident soccer nuts could invite friends to play ‘the world’s longest soccer game’ in the local park, to raise funds for sports equipment for underprivileged kids. The friendly neighbor: Is there an elderly person in your neighborhood, or mom with a very small child? Summer’s a great chance to

walk across the road with some baking, to ask how your son or daughter could help. It’s a great chance for your child to practice reading out loud over the summer. The caring baker: Invest in a tin of fair trade cocoa, or bag of fair trade sugar, and learn a basic cupcake or brownie recipe. Wherever your child offers these treats (to neighbors in need or for sale at a lemonade stand) he or she could share what they’ve learned about child labour. Visit www. nochildforsale.ca to learn more.

Lyme Disease Prevention: How to remove a tick (NC) Lyme disease is an emerging infectious disease in Canada and the risk is increasing. Canadians engaging in outdoor activities like golfing, camping, hunting, fishing, hiking, property maintenance and outdoor workers such as park officers and surveyors should be on the lookout for blacklegged ticks. They could be carrying the bacterium that causes Lyme disease. If you find an attached tick on your skin, carefully remove it with clean tweezers. Removing the tick within 24 to 36 hours usually prevents the risk of infection.Grasp the tick’s head as close to the skin as possible and pull slowly straight out until the tick is removed. Do not twist or rotate the tick and try not to squash or crush it during removal.

Position the jaws of the tweezers around the mouthparts of the tick and as close to the skin as possible. The tweezers should be held at a right angle to the tick’s body. Gently, but firmly, pull the tick up and away from the host’s skin. After removing the attached tick, wash the bite area with soap and water or disinfect it with alcohol or hand sanitizer. If mouthparts break off and remain in the skin, remove them

Are your supplements helping you? Hurting you? Or a waste of money? with tweezers or, if you are unable to remove them easily, leave them alone and let the skin heal. If possible, note the day of the tick bite. Contact a doctor immediately if you develop symptoms of Lyme disease. Early treatment of Lyme disease is key. For additional information on Lyme disease, visit Canada.ca/health.

I can help you with that.

Shuswap Lake likely to peak well below 2012 flood levels By Barb Brouwer

MARKET NEWS STAff

Forty millimetres is not a lot, but it could signal the beginning of the end for this year’s freshet. On June 5, the BC

River Forecast Centre predicted that Shuswap Lake would peak over the weekend at around 348.6 metres, similar to levels reached in 2011 and 2013 – a full metre below the lake level

reached in 2012. Concerns from some quarters that a return of El Nino, combined with heavy rainfall could result in flooding, prompted Shuswap Emergency Program (SEP) officials

to advise that, according to experts, 2012 levels will not be reached. “There is no forecast for heavy rainfall for the province, except perhaps for isolated thunderstorms similar

Profile of the week

to what has been experienced over the past few days in the Shuswap region,” stated a June 5 SEP public advisory. The BC Forecast Centre confirmed last week that smaller tribu-

taries in the Shuswap have peaked. However, if a thunderstorm were to dump excessive precipitation, the water could rise temporarily. Such smaller rainfalls are not expected to have

Concrete

any impact on the level of the lake. Emergency Centre Operations information officer Cathy Semchuk says the lake level was down 40 mm from its 348.584-mm high last Friday.

Rotary Update ROTARY CLUBS OF SALMON ARM - DAYBREAK

From the Salmon River to Guatemala – The Daybreak Rotary Club has been busy! On May 24th, you may have seen members of the Daybreak Rotary club alongside the highway near the Salmon River picking up the garbage along the TransCanada Highway. We perform this in the spring and the fall as part of the Adopt-AHighway program. We have also got the gardens growing for our “gardens for the food banks” program. This is a great program that brings us together to grow vegetables in gardens donated by local residents. The food grown is donated to the local food banks and provides us with an opportunity to strengthen the community that is our home.
