Blind Bay proposal goes to hearing By Barb Brouwer

MARKET NEWS STAFF

Blind Bay Resort development plans are once again sparking community concerns as well as support. And anyone who has an opinion to voice must do so before or during a public hearing scheduled for 6 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 6 at Sorrento Memorial Hall. At a July 17 board meeting, Co-

lumbia Shuswap Regional District electoral area directors voted unanimously to give Blind Bay Resort owner Dan Baskill’s development proposal second reading and send it on to public hearing. While Baskill maintains his development will benefit local businesses and encourage tourists to move to the South Shuswap, others are crying foul on various fronts – including the size and possible impact of his

proposed dock and the implications of putting 112 seasonal units on a foreshore that is zoned single-family residential. Baskill’s proposal had been turned down at a January board meeting, a move that caused an uproar among his supporters, who accused directors of voting on a project they had never seen. Normally, a proposal does not return to the board for at least six

months without substantial changes to the application. “There was a lot of confusion and the directors brought it back on the basis of a two-thirds vote. You don’t want to use it willy-nilly but it is there,” said CSRD chief administrative officer Charles Hamilton of the mechanism that allows the early return of an application. “In staff’s See Plans on page A2

Plans inconsistent with new OCP mind, the changes weren’t significant.” But Baskill believes otherwise. He says he reduced the numbers of moorage slips from 70 to 55 and offered five per cent of the property’s value in cash, as well as a strip of land along the western edge as an easement in order to allow public access. Baskill argues his property was a campground long before it became a resort in 1972, and has replaced previous problem parties on the site with a safe, secure resort for families. Shuswap Water Action Team president Ray Nadeau looks beyond the good times. A member of a committee that created the new official community plan (OCP) that was adopted in March and which clearly limits foreshore development, Nadeau and SWAT are taking issue primarily with the proposed dock. He says the resort’s “massive private dock” will be the longest on Shuswap Lake, exceeds minimum setbacks, poses a safety risk and will encroach on four adjacent properties. SWAT also opposes the seasonal nature of

Baskill’s development, maintaining it will further burden a small and already overcrowded bay. CSRD Development Services manager Gerald Christie says after the board’s decision to give the proposal first reading in May, staff sent out referrals to all required agencies. “All have come back with green lights,” he says, reiterating there were no significant changes from the January application. The development requires amendments to the newly-minted South Shuswap OCP. “As far as the new OCP bylaw #725 goes, there are several instances that don’t speak favourably to this type of development on the foreshore,” Christie said. In the bylaw that will now go to public hearing, one of the amendments is to add a new policy exempting the property from eight other policies within the OCP. “Those policies were recommended, and nothing less than that would do to the people of the South Shuswap,” says CSRD senior planner Dan Passmore of the OCP that was eight years in the making and included significant

community input. “This exemption flies in the face of that.” The eight areas that would need OCP amendments deal with respecting environmental and foreshore values, permitted land uses within secondary settlement areas, maintaining near-shore areas of Shuswap Lake ecologically intact by focusing development away from the shoreline and by minimizing impacts from moorage facilities. In terms of moorage, the new OCP says it may be included only for fee-simple waterfront parcels. New development proposals get one moorage per waterfront parcel or 30 metres of water frontage. Lastly, large-scale commercial development is not acceptable in secondary settlement areas and should be directed to the village centre. “What is being done is a very site-specific zoning,” Christie says. “Staff have pointed out, in both our reports, the issues and inconsistencies with the new OCP. Now we’re waiting to hear from the public on these proposed amendments.” Following the public hearing, all public input relating to the proposal then goes to the board

for its consideration of third reading. No submissions can be received after the close of the public hearing.

Gaming centre to move ahead By Barb Brouwer

MARKET NEWS STAFF

If work progresses as well as the Berezan Group hopes, a gaming centre in Salmon Arm will open in May. “Finally I think we have a construction agreement between myself and the band,” said president Ralph Berezan Monday, noting a bid has been let to demolish the old GM building on the corner of 10th Street SW and the Trans-Canada Highway. “We have been waiting for the federal

government to approve and sign everything.” Demolition is expected to take 10 days, beginning the first week of August. The next step is to verify cost details with companies consulted last year. “We have an agreement with the Adams Lake Band, we always want to give first chance to band members in the immediate area,” says Berezan of employment opportunities. “The Adams Lake Band have been a pleasure to work with and are really doing everything in their

power to take this forward.” Berezan is also pleased with the co-operation he has received from Mayor Nancy Cooper and council. He says although the gaming centre will be on band land, it will be hooked up to Salmon Arm water and sewer infrastructure. Chances Salmon Arm will cover 22,000 square feet and will feature banquet and conference areas with 100 slot machines and bingo tables. It will also have a VIP lounge

They were hoping for a miracle – and they got one. Megan Leverrier’s family received the word last weekend they had been praying for. A child’s liver was available for transplant. “I’m just so thrilled,” said Megan’s aunt Tracey Nickolson Monday. “Everything worked out like clockwork – it was definitely the miracle we were waiting for.” The organ was a match for Megan, so surgery was scheduled immediately. “It happened so fast, we’re still in shock,” she

says, her voice bubbling with gratitude for the bitter-sweet gift. “It’s the greatest gift of life.” Surgery began at 5 a.m. Toronto time Sunday and, for the next eight hours, 21 doctors worked to remove fouryear-old Megan’s liver and the huge tumour attached to it – and then replace it with the donor liver. Michelle and Jaime, Megan’s parents, posted on Facebook Monday that the tumour weighed 13.2 pounds. At presstime, Megan remained in the intensive care unit in Toronto’s Sick Children’s Hospital, the facility she has been in since April

Farcical, fanciful fun at play By Barb Brouwer

MARKET NEWS STAFF

It seems every time I am seated on a bleacher, hay bale or in a wagon at Caravan Farm Theatre, I think ‘this is the best production I’ve seen here.’ That thought echoed loudly again at last Thursday’s opening of The Tragical Comedy of Punch and Judy. Not only are the actors to be applauded, but everyone involved. Costumes, props and sets add to the magic of an evening that, although cold and overcast, soon heated up with the uproarious laughter emanating from the large audience. Artistic director Courtenay Dobbie has chosen another winner in Victoria playwright Jacob Richmond’s play – and directed it with great skill. The dialogue is witty and, despite the wealth of double entendres and innuendo – both visual and verbal, this is a production that both young and old will find funny.

TIM MATHESON PHOTO

n Daniel Maslany as Joey the Clown and Paul Braunstein as Mr.

Punch perform in a scene from the Caravan Farm Theatre’s hilarious summer production, which runs to Aug. 24. Colin Doyle, the Devil with a charming Parisian accent and sly ways, handily kept apace with Sarah May Redmond, who brought the voice of the Maritimes to Judy, and the naughty but hilarious Paul Braunstein as Mr. Punch. The merry bunch of oddballs and misfits that form the supporting cast deliver rib-tickling performances and the band, costumes and

props add rich colour to the tale of a boorish fellow who must mend his ways in order to regain the love of his lady fair, who has fallen for the natty and well-played King Oedipus (Paul Fauteux). Over the two-hour course of the play, we see Mr. Punch morph from a baton-bashing bully to a compassionate, humbled man. Comedy is rife too in the lyrics of sev-

eral songs by Hank Pine, and the audience cheered more than once – particularly at the conclusion of a rap number performed by a cast of mythological characters in ancient attire. This is theatre at its best and the perfect place to spend a summer evening. The Tragical Comedy of Punch and Judy runs at 7:30 p.m. to Aug. 24. Visit www.ticketseller.ca for tickets.

Car show wheels into Haney in August Polish up the chrome for the 15th annual Classic Antique Car Show that takes place Sunday, Aug. 10 at R.J. Haney Heritage Village. The show will feature more than 100 classic and antique automobiles displayed throughout the village. Anyone who is interested in displaying their vehicle may register for free from 8 to 10 a.m. on the day of the event. Registered cars and trucks will be given a commemorative car show ribbon for display, and owners will have an opportunity to win a “People’s Choice Award.”

Ballots will be available in the museum for those who wish to vote for their favorite vehicles. There are several “People’s Choice” categories, including Antique pre 1916, Vintage Pre 1942, AmericanStock Only to 1969, American Stock Only 1970 and up, Modified (Hot Rods and Custom) and Foreign. First- and second-place ribbons will be awarded in each class. People’s balloting will close at 1 p.m., with ribbons being awarded at 1:30. Visitors to the show will enjoy musical entertainment from young local musician Phoenix

Goldsmith on his red Fender bass, alongside his mentor Peter Clark. The duo have selected material to complement the car show, including pieces from the ’60s “surf and drag” era (The Ventures and The Shadows), classic tunes from the jazz age, and even the occasional tune from the ’70s. Also performing is The Chris Stevens Family Band. The award-winning Stevens is known as one of the country’s top banjo players, and is a sought- after session musician and a seasoned award- winning entertainer. He has recorded with

K.D. Lang and has supported bluegrass legends Kenny Baker and Josh Graves. Stevens has brought together three generations of his family to make up the “Chris Stevens Family Bluegrass Band.” Admission is $7 for adults and $4 for children ages five to 12.

OPINION Prime minister hides behind privilege It appears that Prime Minister Stephen Harper intends to avoid testifying in the trial of suspendedsenator Mike Duffy, now facing 31 criminal charges connected with his disputed expense claims. While legal experts claim it’s entirely likely that Harper will be called to testify by Duffy’s defence in response to bribery charges, a spokesman has made it clear this week that Harper feels he has no further information to add to what he has already supplied to the RCMP. This is yet another instance of Harper’s increasing disconnect with the electorate. Whatever reasons he offers, it is obvious the desire to avoid anything that might prove embarrassing has yet again trumped any attempt at transparency or respect for due process. Do any of us imagine we could avoid a subpoena to appear as a witness in a trial by claiming we had nothing useful to add? But then we’re not the prime minister – and not able to avail ourselves of his privileges, parliamentary or otherwise. Harper has persistently sought to distance himself from the actions of the Prime Minister’s Office on the Duffy file – a situation that would be laughable if it did not reveal how flawed our political system is. Cloaked in his mantle of privilege, Harper has decried the kinds of actions his appointee to the senate is accused of perpetrating, stopping just short of accusing the man himself. Yet Duffy has alleged, just as persistently, that the prime minister is not as far removed from the affair as one would have us believe. Whatever our presumptions with regard to Duffy, the accused deserves his day in court. And Canadians deserve the kind of leader who is willing to endure some personal discomfiture to testify, openly and honestly, in a court of law. -Black Press

Keeping canines cool and hydrated The other day while I was sitting eating lunch beneath the shade of a tree on one of the picnic tables at Marine Park, I found myself watching a number of people going by taking their dogs for a walk. Part of me was envious. I miss having a dog. Another part of me questioned why these people had chosen to take their poor, panting pets for a walk in the heat of the noon-day sun. I ended up offering my bottle of water to one woman for her dog. It was walking with its head down and panting like crazy. (It might not be a bad idea for the city to put out water bowls around the park area for dogs to drink from – at least in the summer months.) Any way you look at it, common sense should tell people that when they’re out in that kind of heat, they need to take along plenty of water in order to stay hydrated. Dehydration can cause serious complications for both people and dogs. Water is essential to all living beings who are dependant on fluid intake to

THE GREAT OUTDOORS James Murray maintain appropriate body temperature, proper circulation, digestion and waste removal. The best way to avoid dehydration when going for extended walks in the heat of the day is to pay attention to your (and your dog’s) body signals. Drink plenty of fluids at regular intervals – sip water/fluid every 15 to 20 minutes. If you start to feel thirsty, chances are you have already started to become dehydrated. If you drink enough fluids, you will feel better. If you don’t, you may experience symptoms of dehydration, such as a dry or sticky mouth, low and/or dark urine output, low blood pressure, lethargy and in more severe cases,

dizziness and confusion. Proper hydration is essential, so remember, it is always better to bring along more water/fluids than you think you might need. Give your dog water at regular intervals as well. According to the SPCA’s website, the most common symptom of dehydration in dogs is the loss of elasticity in the skin. If you pull lightly on the skin and it does not not readily come back to its original place, your dog is becoming dehydrated. Another more alarming symptom is a condition known as xerostomia, where the dog’s gums lose moistness and become dry and sticky and the saliva becomes thick. If your dog appears to be suffering from severe dehydration, seek immediate medical attention. A veterinarian will be able to administer intravenous fluids to avoid further dehydration and replace body fluids. It’s also a good idea to take along one of those commercially made, collapsible dog dishes that fold up. They are easy to carry along in your pocket or pack

with the water. It is not a good idea to fill your dog’s dish with lake or stream water as the majority of our lakes and streams are polluted to some degree and may contain nasty microscopic vermin that neither you nor your dog should ingest. While on the subject of water, if you decide to take your dog along while boating, canoeing, kayaking or fishing out on the lake, the same basic rules apply to activities on the water as on land. Take into consideration that not only are you and your dog exposed to the heat of the sun directly, but also from the sun reflected from the surface of the water. Also, in small watercraft such as a canoe or 12-foot aluminum fishing boat, there are few if any places for a dog to escape the heat, so it is absolutely imperative to have cool, fresh water onboard. Of course, there is one other alternative when it is really hot outside – simply stay indoors, watch TV or read a book and wait till the sun goes down and the air has cooled off.

of the patient’s brain. Prior to the operation, the patient was uncontrollably shaking. After he placed the probe through the skull into the problem area he energized the area with a heart pace-maker type device, resulting in the patient having complete control of her body after the procedure. Lozano had many videos of patients with tremors, depression, and numerous brain deterioration symptoms that, when treated, were cured or improved by energizing parts of the brain that had less electro activity. He also ran a test using this technique with six patients with anorexia and found, after six months of treatment, that the patients regained 30 per cent of their body

I might add that industry also funds much of this research to ensure they are ahead of the curve in their business model. Genome Canada has become a leader in genetic research, not only on human genetics, but also plant and animal genetics. One of the presenters from Genome Canada reported that the largest conference on genome research is held in San Diego each year and Canadian researchers makeup the majority of the presentations because of our globalleading position on this research. Your government realizes the answers to understanding the complexities of the human body, our natural surroundings and our universe will provide solutions to help Canadians be healthier, the natural environment better protected and support a more economically sustainable world.

Lozano stated within six to eight years, patients will be able to go to a medical clinic and have parts of their brain reenergized through this procedure. He is also working on dementia, hoping that through this procedure, devastating brain deterioration can be reversed. The second presentation was a report on your government’s investments in the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada. The presentation pertained to the research in the faculty of Forestry at the University of British Columbia. Researchers were collecting data on the genetic makeup of various tree species. Studying the genetic makeup of the trees to identify their genome will hopefully produce a tree that will reach maturity quicker, be hardier and provide better wood fibre for commercial use. This

I have always had an interest in new technologies and, as your MP, I often attend presentations from research groups representing various science disciplines. In the spring, I attended two presentations which made me proud to be with a government that has invested significantly in scientific research. Of the 11 federal government investments in university research disciplines, British Columbia was awarded five. The first event was the Health Research Canada luncheon with neurosurgeon, Dr. Andres Lozano, Professor and Chair of Neurosurgery at the University of Toronto. Lozano presented his findings on studies on the human brain. After scanning the brain of a patient with Parkinson’s, he discovered an area of the brain related to mobility control that was less active. As activity of the brain is directly related to electro impulses that help send brain messages, Lozano decided to place an electro probe into the inactive area

SOUTH SHUSWAP Art show a family matter Artists and sisters-in-law, Judy Coutts and Judy Mackenzie will soon be holding their second annual art show, “Related Styles” at the Reedman Gallery, located in the lower level of the Blind Bay Hall. Coutts, a former local girl, grew up in Carlin, and now calls Rosedale home. She paints primarily in oils and watercolours, and chooses to portray animals, birds, assorted wildlife, flowers and landscapes, with horses being her specialty. She belongs to several painting groups, including the Agassi Monday Painters, the Golden Palette Group of Cultus Lake, and the Chilliwack Visual Artist Association. Coutts also takes ongoing lessons with wellknown artist Dawn Kerr.

PUBLIC HEARING

Blind Bay Resort Development Application, Bylaws 725-2, 701-79, 900-5 Letter to the Editor – July 25, 2014 Dear friends, residents of Blind Bay, and concerned citizens of Shuswap Lake: On August 6th, 2014, we are asking for public support at our Public Hearing, to bring our final vision for Blind Bay Resort to fruition. As you may know, it has been a long haul for our family, guests and neighbors as we’ve navigated a governmental process and economic setback, that has left a portion of our property incomplete and a planned environmental improvement unaddressed. Your help now will ensure we can finish what we started in 2007. The application of 2013 has remained fairly consistent, but features an easement for public access plus 5% cash contribution towards the CSRD Parks Board, and a change to the moorage to include only the approved 55 slips. We ask only to move away from the sensitive foreshore, creating a beautiful pier to enhance natural wave action. We also continue to ask for the 19 low density recreation RV lots that have historically been in place since 1972, to contribute to a healthy business model that includes only temporary and seasonal recreation owner and tourist use. There are several steps needed to complete this – hence the changes to various bylaws, but the reality is we are simply looking to continue with our current uses and finish an unsightly area. Our final work will create local jobs, taxes, add to the economy, beautify the area, and bring important tourists to the area for decades to come. More information is available at www. blindbayresort.com. Please join us to exercise our collective rights for responsible development. The Hearing is at 6:00PM, in Sorrento at the Sorrento Memorial Hall. Your letter is equally valuable, so at minimum I would ask you to write in support to our CSRD Senior Planner Dan Passmore, or our Area C Director Mr. Paul Demenok. Letters must be personally addressed, signed, and submitted to either dpassmore@csrd.bc.ca, or pdemenok@csrd.bc.ca. You may also fax to the CSRD office, at 250-832-3375. I would appreciate a copy as well, so that I may respond to any comments or concerns that you may express. Many thanks to the staff and Directors of the CSRD, who have assisted us in moving through this latest application process expeditiously, and for touring our site during our open house on July 17th! I may be reached by email, at dbaskill@hotmail.com, cell at 250-803-2595, fax (250) 675-4744, or in person by appointment at our resort. As always, please drop by for a personal tour while our resort is in full operation, and check out the area’s finest breakfasts at the Olde Town Centre café and restaurant. Thank you for your support and participation! Dan Baskill Blind Bay Resort Jaydan Ventures Inc. 2698 Blind Bay Road Blind Bay, BC. V0E 1H1

Shuswap Branch Saturday, September 6, 2014

Media Release Shuswap Water Action Team (SWAT) The CSRD Board recently rejected Blind Bay Resort’s application to rezone waterfront single family lots into a high-density multi-family “Seasonal Only”trailer park with a massive private dock expansion. However the BB Resort has now reapplied with only two changes to their proposal. Shuswap Water Action Team Directors support higher density and commercial development when directed to Town Centers as specified in the South Shuswap Official Community Plan (OCP). We also agree with the OCP that high-density multi-family developments with large boat marinas are not appropriate. Large waterfront developments produce higher concentrations of sewage with septic systems that discharge close to the water where groundwater runs to the lake. Also, run-off from roofs, driveways, etc. with associated chemicals and other contaminants are concentrated and end up in the water. Large dock systems contribute exponentially and concentrate the number of boats parked in the lake with their bilge discharges, cleaning chemicals and so on. We support the trend of other lake regions moving towards land-based boat storage, similar to the one in Sicamous. We oppose Blind Bay Resort’s “high-density”waterfront rezoning and marina expansion for many reasons, as expressed by our members and directors. Some are highlighted below. What are the Changes? 1. Houseboat Berthing And Commercial Houseboat Operations to be Prohibited. 2. More Dock Berths to be Prohibited. These changes are welcome but do not address many other significant issues. What Has Not Changed? 1. It completely conflicts with our new OCP and vision that states waterfront lots must be “low-density”. Two single-family residentials will become 19 highdensity multi-family “Seasonal Occupancy Only”trailers. 2.

It does not comply with our OCP bylaw or the best long-term interests of our community. It also restricts units to “seasonal occupation”which will increase peak loads in Blind Bay when congestion and overcrowding is already an issue. The community has too many seasonal residents and needs more year-round residents to enhance the community and help local businesses become more viable. Also, approving this rezoning would set a terrible precedent for similar residential rezonings.

3.

The Private Dock will be expanded far out into Blind Bay in one of the busiest and congested areas on the lake. The approved lease of 348 ft would be extended to 550 ft. It would become the longest dock in the entire Shuswap Lake and would create an unacceptable Boating Safety Threat. With their 2 buoys and boats at the end the incursion it would increase to about 670ft.

4.

The maximum CSRD bylaw length for a marina is 441ft. The two other public docks in Blind Bay are only about 350 ft.

5.

The Private Dock would be extensively widened and exceed bylaw 900 minimum side parcel setbacks of 16 ft (and 19ft) from property lines extending into the lake. The dock encroaches well into adjacent property foreshores. That is inequitable and would severely impact adjacent property owners use of their property and foreshore. It would also impact them financially and could result in legal action against the CSRD.

6.

The dock lease footprint area would be 7,298 sq. metres, which is 30% more than double it’s current lease. This is a massive incursion and not appropriate for our bay.

Salmon Arm mayor and council voted Monday to give the next mayor and council a 19 and 44 per cent raise, respectively. As of Jan. 1, 2015, remuneration for council will be increased from $15,000 to $21,660, and from $44,800 to $53,725 for the mayor (totals exclude expenses). Future annual increases will be tied to the B.C. Consumer Price Index. Council approved both of these following the presentation of a survey by Maurice Lamb of Lamb and Associates. Lamb was hired by the city to complete a salary and benefit survey for mayor and council. Summing up his findings, Lamb said he found the mayor’s pay to be $8,925 less than the survey average, while councillors are paid $6,660 less. “So, my recommendation is that you pay the survey average rates,” said Lamb. “I think it’s very important that municipalities maintain survey average rates, because if you don’t, all of sudden one year you’re faced with a huge catch-up, and also, you want to have rates out there to

attract more people to run for political office.” The survey results provided to council include remuneration rates for other B.C. communities with populations similar in size to Salmon Arm’s. Among them is Cranbrook, where the mayor is paid $53,319 and council $21,676, Langford ($34,252 and $16,107) and Squamish ($64,490 and $27,731). It was noted that 2003 was the last time Salmon Arm’s mayor and council received a raise. With that in mind, Coun. Alan Harrison said now is a right time to address the matter, noting there’s the municipal election in November. “None of us know if we’re going to be sitting here again, some may choose not to… So it’s a fair way to do it I think,” said Harrison. “I’m of the feeling that, certainly the mayor’s salary that’s suggested is well-deserved. It’s more like a full-time job. “For councillors, I think it is a remuneration and should remain at that. It’s not a fulltime job. But there is a responsibility to it for sure. And I think being the average in the province is probably a fair way to do it.” Noting she is one of

those councillors who won’t be running in November, Marg Kentel did not support the recommended increases happening all at once next year, suggesting it could be spread over the four-year-term. “Most of us that ran for council, we just do it for – I don’t know

Coun. Alan Harrison why we do it, especially when we do it so long. “We do it for our community,” said Kentel. “It does take away from your job. I know that. I could cite instances where, being a realtor, you vote some way that somebody doesn’t like, it can affect your earnings on the other side, but I’m not comfortable with that big a raise right off.” When elected in 2011, Mayor Nancy Cooper said she was surprised that council remuneration was the same as when she was on council in 2003. “With the increase in work that I’ve seen, and

the amount of hours and the number of committees are way more than what we had at that time in 2003, I will support it,” said Cooper. Coun. Chad Eliason said the increase for council would amount to about $1,500 a month. “Which isn’t a ton of money considering the hours we do put in,” said Eliason. “We’ve had weeks where we’ve put in over 40 hours just for public hearings. “It definitely takes away from your other work.” In his report, Lamb also reviews expenses. He generally recommends there be no changes, except for the per diem that is paid for such things as attending meetings. Lamb says Salmon Arm has a higher per diem rate ($150/day) than the majority of survey participants (averaging $89/day), and recommends this be reviewed. Council, however, did not discuss expenses. Council briefly discussed, and voted against, a recommended remuneration increase of $7,517 a year, from the current $50 per day/ $600 per month for the deputy mayor.

PUBLIC APPEAL

Blind Bay Resort Development Application, Bylaws 725-2, 701-79, 900-5 Letter to the Editor I am writing on behalf of our family to ask for public support for our final development plans for Blind Bay Resort. We once again are trying to gain our approvals for 19 waterfront recreational RV sites on land that has been historically used for this since 1972. We also wish to move our moorage dock deeper, to enhance our foreshore environmental impact and guest safety. We recognize the public sentiment to guard our waterfront areas against prolific high density development, but know we are not proposing this nor can exist without a compatible use of this land. If you’ve followed our story, you’ll know we work hard to enhance our community, creating jobs, taxes, and have improved considerably the social and environmental influence our resort has upon this area. Our application also provides for a public access easement, and will contribute 5% of the land value to the CSRD Parks fund. Please help us by sending a clear message of support: Attend our Public Hearing on August 6th, at the Sorrento Memorial Hall, at 6:00PM. Or send your letter of support to our CSRD Senior Planner Dan Passmore, at dpassmore@csrd.bc.ca. Each letter must be addressed to be considered. If you need more information, please view our web site at www.blindbayresort.com, or come directly to our resort for a personal tour while all our guests are here. We would appreciate it!

Girl Guides help Salvation Army Food Bank The Salmon Arm Salvation Army was the recipient of a hefty donation. About 2,500 Girl Guides, who were in Salmon Arm last week on their way to and from Enderby for their Spirit of Adventure Rendezvous, donated more than 13 thousand pounds of perishable food to the Salvation Army. The food was intended for a campout last week that was rained out with Wednesday’s storm. Almost as soon as the food arrived over the weekend, it was gone. “I have never seen it as busy as it is today,” said Salvation Army community co-ordinator Dave Byers on Monday.

Markets are as different as the communities they serve. Some are festive events with artists, musicians and a huge variety of fresh produce and locally made products. Others might feature a few stalls with one farmer supplying most of the produce. Besides providing an abundance of locally grown vegetables and fruit to help keep you healthy, markets also contribute to the health of the community. They are a great place

to socialize, enjoy the fresh air, listen to some music, and meet the farmer that grows your food. When you buy from a producer in your area, you support the local economy. This summer check out the markets in your area. Visiting a market makes a great outing for kids, seniors or outof-town guests. Some communities even offer free public transportation to the market. Don’t forget to bring bags and a cooler for the trip home.

A little context on Gaza GLOBAL VIEWS Gwynne Dyer stops unless it can find a way to ban picks and shovels in the Gaza Strip. Netanyahu needs a victory of some sort before he accepts a ceasefire, but he cannot even define what it would be. So, as he said on Monday, “We should prepare ourselves for an extended campaign.” Meanwhile, the slaughter of Palestinians continues, and sympathy for Israel shrivels even in the United States. It’s not that the Israeli army particularly wants to kill civilians (although it is sometimes very sloppy), but it does prefer to fight a stand-off war with artillery and missiles in order to spare the lives of its own soldiers. In the crowded Gaza Strip, that inevitably means killing lots of civilians. The 1.8 million Palestinians in the Gaza Strip are living at the same population density as the residents of London or Tokyo: around 5,000 people per square kilometre. You cannot use high explosives in this environment without killing a great many innocent civilians, and Netanyahu knew that from the start, because this is Israel’s third war in Gaza in six years. So the Israelis are being brutal and stupid, and the Hamas leaders are being brutal and cynical. (Hamas doesn’t really use civilians as “human shields,” as

Israeli claims, but its leaders know that Palestinian civilians killed by Israeli fire provide them with a kind of political capital.) But this is not to say that the two sides are equally to blame for the killing. There is a broader context. Before 1948, only about 60,000 people lived on the land now known as the Gaza Strip. The vast majority of those who live there now are Arab refugees, or the children, grandchildren and greatgrandchildren of Arab refugees, who fled or were driven out of what is now Israel during the 1948 war. They are not there by choice. Israel has traditionally insisted that the refugees freely chose to flee, although revisionist Israeli historians have debunked that story pretty thoroughly. But which story you believe doesn’t really matter. Fleeing your home in time of war does not deprive you of the right to go home when the fighting ends. Yet the Palestinians have not been allowed to go home, and Israel is

adamant that they never will be. The ancestral lands of the Palestinians in what is now Israel are lost as permanently as those of the American Indians. The “peace” everybody talks about is really just about giving them security of tenure and real self-government in the one-fifth of former Palestine that they still occupy. Unfortunately, that is not even visible on the horizon. When Netanyahu is addressing American audiences, he gives lipservice to a “two-state solution” that includes an independent, demilitarized Palestinian ministate, but everybody in Israel knows that he is really determined to avoid it. Israel is therefore effectively committed to penning in and controlling the Palestinians forever. When their objections to this situation get too violent, they have to be disciplined. That is what is happening now. Just like 2009 and 2012. Gwynne Dyer is an independent journalist whose articles are published in 45 countries.

You can see why Hamas doesn’t want a cease-fire in Gaza yet. It is continuing the fight in the hope that international outrage at the huge loss of people being killed by Israel’s massive firepower will somehow, eventually, force Israel to give it what it wants. Hamas would be quite willing to give up firing its pathetic rockets – which have so far killed a grand total of three civilians in Israel – if Israel ends its seven-year blockade of the Gaza Strip. Dream on. Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s goal is harder to define. Domestic political pressure to “do something” about those pesky rockets pushed him into this war, but now he must produce some kind of success in order to justify all those deaths: around 1,150 Palestinians and more than 50 Israelis already. But what kind of success could it be? He cannot destroy all the rockets – Hamas shows no sign of running out of them – and even if he could Hamas would just manufacture more of them later unless he physically re-occupied the whole Gaza Strip. In recent days, therefore, Netanyahu has redefined the objective as destroying all the “terror tunnels” that Hamas has dug to infiltrate its fighters into nearby areas of Israel. This makes no sense at all. In order to protect the lives of a few hypothetical Israeli soldiers who might be killed in the future by Hamas fighters using the tunnels, more than 40 real Israeli soldiers have already died. Besides, Israel can’t stop Hamas from digging more tunnels after the shooting

Lee Creek gets new designation By Barb Brouwer

MARKET NEWS STAFF

Fine form

JAMES MURRAY/MARKET NEWS

n Chase dancer Matthew Sellers and Chilliwack dancer/drummer Victor Khatsalano take part in an inter-tribal dance at the 30th annual Skwlax Competition Pow Wow held July 18 to 20 at the Pow Wow grounds on Little Shuswap Indian Band land in Squilax.

It’s official. Lee Creek has been designated as a secondary settlement area (SSA) in the North Shuswap official community plan. The Columbia Shuswap Regional District board voted unanimously, and without discussion, to adopt Bylaw 830-10 at the July 17 board meeting. In her report to the board, development services assistant Jennifer Sham noted the secondary settlement area proposed for Lee Creek was originally left out of the OCP because of public “discussion and input.” “In the four-and-ahalf years since the adoption of Bylaw No. 830, some owners and developers within the Lee Creek area have approached the CSRD requesting the SSA be applied to Lee Creek in recognition of the existing residential densities,” wrote Sham. “In past referral correspondence, Interior

Health stated their support to add Lee Creek as an SSA because it is the closest settlement to areas outside the North Shuswap.” By creating an SSA, there will be less traffic and air pollution from residents and tourists travelling to and from Lee Creek for a variety of reasons, including business and shopping, among others, says Sham. In presenting the bylaw to the board in May, development services manager Gerald See SSA on page 18

50th Wedding Anniversary

The family of Ray and Jean Lorenz are pleased to announce their 50th wedding anniversary on August 15, 2014. Ray and Jean met, and married, in Davidson, Saskatchewan in 1964. They started a family in Regina, shortly thereafter, and moved to Alberta in the early 70’s. In 1975 they travelled west, and made their home at Silvery Beach Resort on the Little Shuswap for the next 26 years. Now semi-retired, Ray and Jean are proud to be two of Chase’s many long-term residents!

SSA benefits include protection of natural habitat Continued from pg. 17 Christie explained the SSA designation is also supported by the Ministry of Agriculture. And while there was heated opposition to the move by some Lee Creek residents, Christie said the majority were in favour. At an April 15 public hearing attended by 83 people, 14 people spoke to the issue but only four were new submissions. Although three of those speakers

opposed the new bylaw, 115 of 174 written submissions received were in favour of the move. Christie provided an account of the submissions, noting there was duplication in both the ‘for’ and ‘against’ groups, and that some submissions came from as far away as Belgium and were therefore discounted. He said the objectives of managing growth in Lee Creek by redesignating it as an SSA include: protect the natural habitat and agricultural land

and preserve the area’s highly valued rural character; direct growth in an organized and desirable manner and provide a clear separation between rural and non-rural lands. As well as facilitating shorter trips by vehicle, Christie told directors this settlement pattern will encourage more walking, bicycling and potentially, the introduction of public transit. The new designation also allows for a firehall, he said.

At the May board meeting, Area F director Larry Morgan noted all the other smaller communities in the North Shuswap were designated secondary settlement areas except for Scotch Creek, which is a primary settlement area. “The SSA will allow proponents to make application for rezoning and subdivision into strata or fee simple lots, and will allow for the elimination of undivided interests,” Morgan said.

H O U S I N G M AT T E R S

In response to public concern about a proliferation of development in Lee Creek, both Morgan and Christie were adamant that any new development proposal will have to go through the regional district’s development process and will have to stand on its own merits. As well, Christie noted there are stringent protection mechanisms in place for any development near the lake, including the riparian area regulations.

HAFI Funds Home Modifications for Disabled Man When Lorie and Walter bought their home in Port Alberni 13 years ago they slowly began renovating the unfinished basement to accommodate Walter’s changing needs as his muscular dystrophy advanced. “The basement was a black hole when we moved in,” recalled Walter. “After 12 years of skimping and saving, we made the downstairs completely wheelchair accessible, except for the bathroom. It was way too small. I could only stand for about a minute and a half without collapsing in the shower stall and I could no longer pull myself out of the tub in the upstairs’ bathroom, even with Lorie’s help.” Through funding from BC Housing’s Home Adaptations for Independence (HAFI) program, Walter and Lorie were able to work with a contractor to transform the space. A wall was removed to make room for a wheelin shower with benches, grab bars were installed, and the vanity and fixtures were relocated.

“ I just slide into the shower now,” said Walter. “I feel safer and no longer dread trying to wash myself. What was previously a dangerous chore for me is now a welcome treat.” Walter and Lorie hope to spend the rest of their lives in their home. The HAFI program provides financial assistance to help eligible low-income seniors and people with disabilities adapt their homes so they can continue to live independently.

INFORMATION DESIGNED TO PROMOTE AND ENHANCE YOUR WELLBEING

Could “the astronaut workout” be the next training trend? (NC) On Earth, it would already be the next workout craze. Months after his videos of science experiments and everyday tasks such as shaving, brushing teeth and making a sandwich in space took off, Chris Hadfield’s YouTube clips about health and exercise have quietly gained their own devoted fan following. From pumping iron and running to simply sleep, Hadfield’s workout videos have gotten more than 3.6 million views on the Canadian Space Agency’s YouTube channel. Not only are people watching with interest as astronauts exercise, some are even copying those space voyagers’ training routines. To date, over 24,000 people have participated in NASA astronaut Mike Hopkins’ “Train like an astronaut” program. So why work-out like a space cadet? For one thing, astronauts train as if their lives depend on it: To stay alert and useful during the strains of

launch, re-entry and spacewalks, career astronauts need to be in good physical shape. They also need to exercise just to keep

their muscles and bones from shrinking. Without having to ‘fight’ against gravity, humans can lose 1-2 per cent of

you only get

their bone mass every month. “From the moment you get into space, you are literally pee-

ing out your skeleton,” Hadfield has said, of the accelerated bone-loss that happens on modern space missions. To help make-up for this, astronauts on the International Space Station are required to exercise two hours a day. During their workout, ISS crew have their choice of a stationary bike, a micro-g treadmill, or a one-of-a-kind resistance machine that simulates training with weights. And astronauts don’t just flop on the couch when they’re not in space. An example training day to prepare for a mission might involve a jog, work with a medicine ball, pull-ups, box jumps, and a series of sprints. While it’s not a program you can buy on DVD or Blu-ray (yet) training like an astronaut could be an Earthly new way to shoot for the stars.

D. BLAIR MITCHELL D. Blair Mitchell died peacefully Thursday, July 24, 2014 in Salmon Arm, B.C. at the age of 58. After enduring a lengthy illness, he left this world in the arms of his wife. He is finally free. Born on March 4, 1956 in Nelson, Blair grew up and graduated in Terrace before moving to the Shuswap in 1979. In 1987 Blair married his wife Susan (Maidment). Together they raised their children, Rachel and Ian, who were his greatest pride and joy; they meant the world to him. Blair was employed by Federated Co-op from 1979 until he retired, due to health reasons, in 2008. The proud owner of Fine Line Custom Picture Framing in Salmon Arm, Blair created some of the best work in the area. A talented artist and athlete, whatever he did, excellence was always his goal. A self-taught musician, Blair was well known in the Shuswap as the drummer of Rohanna. He devoted many years to perfecting his ability and practice was the heartbeat of the home. It was a joy to watch him perform. As well, he was a sought-after goalie and an avid golfer. Blair could also do almost anything with a frisbee and his love and appreciation for beautiful automotives was legendary. Everyone who knew Blair loved him; he was just easy to love. He will be missed by all of his friends and family, but most especially and profoundly by Susan, Rachel and Ian. A private celebration of life for family and friends will be held to honour the life of this good man, gone far too soon.
