Water program cost sparks debate

CSRD: Directors take issue with formula for allocating financial responsibility. By Barb Brouwer

MARKET NEWS STAff

The potential bill for a multi-regional Shuswap Watershed Water Quality Program had some Columbia Shuswap Regional District directors seeing red. Last March, directors awarded $50,000 to Leftside Partners to study the feasibility of establishing a multi-regional watershed water quality program and provide recommendations for a governance framework, cost recovery and an implementation plan for the service. They got that at their board meeting last week. Local government and planning consultant

Sherry Hurst presented an extensive report. As well as laying out the basic principles and characteristics of such a program, the report offered several governance options, possible funding sources, cost allocation and cost recovery. It was the estimated $200,000 to $250,000 total cost of the program and funding allocation that caused the most concern. Area F North Shuswap director Larry Morgan was visibly angry that two of the cost allocation options had his much less-populated area paying substantially more to fund the program. “How did it get to the $200,000 to $250,000 level, when last year the cost was $80,000,” he asked. “I was shocked by the allocation to Area

F; to me it resurrects old issues… We may have the most shoreline, but we don’t do the most pollution.” Calling for a revamp of the cost-allocation model, Morgan laid the issue in the laps of electoral areas C South Shuswap, D Falkland/Salmon Valley/Deep Creek and the City of Salmon Arm – Area C for sewage issues resulting from aging septic systems, Area D for agricultural runoff into the Salmon River and the city for treated sewage going into Salmon Arm Bay. “We’re being picked on in terms of this going See Funding on page A2

Funding to be divided between districts Continued from front forward,” he said. “We’re either all in, or it doesn’t happen. We have to have commitment before CSRD agrees to fund this.” In terms of total cost, Hurst explained that 50 per cent would go into actual water quality monitoring over five years, 30 per cent would go into water protection, 10 per cent to public education and 10 per cent to administration. She pointed out in-kind funding would come in the form of data provided and managed by government. “Funding sources need to be long-term, based on property value, taxes, or maybe nonprofit groups,” she said. “There could be some government funding, but you don’t want to base a longtime service on that.” Hurst noted that 70 per cent of the funding allocation would fall to CSRD, with 10 per cent going to the Regional District of North Okanagan (RDNO) and 20 per cent to Thompson Nicola Regional District (TNRD). She said it became evident that buy-in and funding commitment would be the big challenges. “We suggest an interim ser-

vice could demonstrate value,” she said. “You could have a sunset clause of five years that would provide a window to see if the service works.” Hurst also suggested the board could wait to see what comes out of the province’s soon-to-beannounced Water Sustainability Act. Area C South Shuswap director and Shuswap Watershed Council chair Paul Demenok expressed his interest in a hybrid governance model that combines two of the options in the report, and asked directors for their initial thoughts in order to “get a toe in the water.” While some did, chief administrative officer Charles Hamilton suggested the board take a step back. “I really think we need to be coming to grips with the financial stuff before becoming fixated on a governance model,” he said, maintaining that while TNRD would likely be willing to contribute 20 per cent, he did not think RDNO would be interested in participating. “As soon as you start shifting the format, Larry might be happy, but Rene will be mad. This is where the rubber hits the road; people want to pay commensurate with the service.”

Area E Rural Sicamous director and current CSRD chair Rhona Martin said it is obvious “there’s some major discussion that needs to happen.” Talbot said his area does not draw drinking water from Shuswap Lake but pays more for its protection. “I think the program has great value; we’re starting to see more and more water quality issues,” he said. “We need to have protection of the lake. We need clean water and safety and anybody who is not in favour and lives on the lake, you need to give your head a shake.” Other directors added their support for water quality monitoring and safety but expressed concerns for the high cost of doing so. Martin said she and many others believe these problems the board is dealing with are a result of the province abdicating its responsibility and that SLIPP and the watershed council have been great in identifying problems. “We need to have hard conversations; we need to look at and collaborate with the farming industry,” she said. “We have to move the process forward because if there is no collaboration or corroboration, do we wait until the water is not safe to drink?”

Bomb threat a hoax, culprit identified MARKET NEWS STAFF

No criminal charges will be laid against a student who made a fake bomb threat at Shuswap Middle School Tuesday, Jan. 20, but the school district will be taking disciplinary action. The student responsible was identified by police and school district officials just a few hours after the threat was made. On Wednesday, a school-wide assembly was held with students and teachers to focus on the impact of the situation to the entire community. Members of the RCMP and school district officials addressed the students, who were also given an opportunity to share their thoughts and feelings about the situation. “Restorative practices will be shared and the impacts of this type of situation will be discussed,” said the statement from School District #83. This was the second bomb threat and evacuation at the school in five weeks. On Dec. 17, the school was cleared and

searched by an RCMP bomb-sniffing dog after a written threat was found in the boys’ washroom. The culprit in that incident has not been identified. The school district said the culprit in today’s incident is not thought to have been involved in the previous threat. As with the previous incident, the school followed protocol for such situations, which includes the evacuation and lockdown of the school. “Earlier today, a false bomb threat was made towards Shuswap Middle School. As a precaution, students were taken to South Broadview Elementary while RCMP investigated the incident,” said a statement from School District #83 Tuesday. Sgt. Andrew Hunter with the Salmon Arm RCMP said police were called at 10:48 a.m. after school officials discovered someone had written a bomb threat on a bathroom wall. The school was evacuated and locked down as a precaution, while police, members of the fire department and an ambulance

The student admitted to writing on the bathroom wall and that the bomb threat was not

real,” said Hunter, who added the information was confirmed by other evidence and a locker search. Students were then taken back to the middle school to resume afternoon classes.

Police, hockey associations investigate fight in stands By Lachlan Labere

MARKET NEWS STAFF

Along with the Sicamous RCMP, the Salmon Arm Minor Hockey Association is investigating a fight that occurred during a recent Midget Tier 2 game in Sicamous. On Saturday, Jan. 17, Sicamous RCMP responded to a report of an altercation at the Sicamous and District Recreation Centre, where a game was being played between Salmon Arm and Penticton. The skirmish wasn’t on the ice, however, but in the stands. “Two people in the stands had a disagreement over a penalty call by a referee,” reported Sicamous RCMP Sgt. Scott West. “This verbal dispute led to a physical confrontation in which some punches were thrown.” West said the parties involved claimed it had become a consensual fight. “Whether or not it’s a consensual fight, you can stand to be charged with causing a disturbance and activities

such as that won’t be tolerated in our public venues,” West commented. The BC Hockey Association has also been made aware of the situation. Salmon Arm Minor Hockey Association (SAMHA) president Tim Giandomenico said the incident in the stands followed one on the ice where a Salmon Arm player was knocked down, and the Penticton player responsible was thrown out of the game. He said the Salmon Arm player has since been to the doctor and is OK. “It’s not like he can’t play any more or anything, but it was a questionable hit – enough of a hit that the official chose to toss the offending player from Penticton,” said Giandomenico, who empathizes with hockey parents and family members whose passions flare up when their worst fears unravel on the ice. But neither he nor SAMHA condone what’s being reported to have hap-

pened in the stands. He said it is SAMHA’s practice to meet with parents at the beginning of the season to explain what behaviour is acceptable and what is not. “It is important to know we do take this very seriously,” said Giandomenico. “As president, that’s something that’s really important to me, our association’s reputation. And that’s why we’re probably the only association in B.C., if not Canada, that actually sits down with every parent at the beginning of the season and explains what our philosophy is on that.” SAMHA’s investigation is ongoing and Giandomenico didn’t wish to comment too much on the matter, adding he had yet to contact the police. But he stressed he and SAMHA, like police, have zero tolerance for what reportedly occurred in the stands.

VIEW POINT

Wireless radiation concerns all Although it may not be evident in the “communication system” public notice published by the city, the purpose of a Jan. 29 meeting is for mayor and council to hear presentations from the public, to share pertinent information in efforts to establish a safe and reasonable local policy on cell tower antennae and microwave transmitter locations. Public concern is that community input, not industry mandates, should drive the approval of locations for microwave antennae, in order to limit health risks, negative property value impacts, and related friction within the community caused by

loss of control of the environment. Last October, the city signed a contract with Shaw Systems without public consultation to place Wi-Fi into public parks, and facilities despite much controversy about the health concerns, in that all wireless emissions are a human cancer risk. Scientific studies reveal that electromagnetic radiation is a clear and present danger to human health, interfering with cell function and causing double strand DNA breaks. It is well-documented scientifically that chronic low levels of microwave radio frequency radiation create changes in living

cells, with evidence of cumulative damage effects; many irreversible. Growing incidence of electromagnetic radiation sensitivity (microwave sickness) is being taken very seriously in Europe. Wireless demand creates rapid expansion of microwave radiation infrastructure so ubiquitous that no living thing can escape for long. Scientists are calling for precautionary measures to be instituted which will protect the public from harm. Please come to this educational meeting at 7 p.m. on Jan. 29 at city hall, an issue concerning all of us. Richard Riach

Focus needed on local economy The impact of falling oil prices isn’t confined just to Alberta. Virtually all of us in the North Okanagan know a loved one, neighbour or friend who works in the oil patch. No one could blame them for heading north as there are limited jobs here and opportunities abounded in Fort McMurray and other places as the crude market went through the roof. But now that the situation has reversed, there may be local residents who have lost their jobs or are uncertain about their future. They may have less expendable cash and that will have a ripple effect on area realtors, automobile dealers, restaurants, travel agents and others. The reality is the economy doesn’t know any borders and we here in the North Okanagan are linked directly to what happens in Alberta. However, instead of just waiting for the oil sector to turn around, the North Okanagan continues to need to focus on establishing a stable economy that provides people with opportunities without having to travel. Obviously that initiative will include tourism and the service sector, but there are also opportunities within agriculture and the high-tech sector. One also has to consider the growing importance of the movie industry, particularly given the recent filming of Go With Me in Enderby, Lumby and Vernon. Easy access to Okanagan College and the University of B.C. means we can have a skilled workforce, while Kelowna International Airport opens the world to investors. Ultimately, dropping oil prices will negatively impact some local families but it may also provide the region with an incentive to refocus on economic conditions right here at home. -Vernon Morning Star

OPINION

Need for change in government attitude

We elect our federal government to make reasonably sound decisions on our behalf and to implement policies that reflect the wishes of the ‘we the people.” Whether or not you happen to adhere to the political ideologies of the party in power at any given time is a relatively moot point because our elected representatives should be doing what is best for the majority of the people, not just some of the people. That is not really too much to ask of any government. The problem is that our current federal government likes to push a lot of small things through Parliament buried deep within the bowels of omnibus bills where they get voted on and passed along with larger issues such as budgets. Small changes to things that inevitably have major impact – especially when it comes to the environment. There appears to be a certain lack of transparency when it comes to the issue of oil and gas development and gas pipelines. Then

THE GREAT OUTDOORS James Murray there’s the whole question of GMOs (genetically modified organisms) and labelling on the food we eat. Who is to say definitively whether or not genetically modified food sources will prove to be a boon to mankind or ultimately unleash disaster of epic proportion. I do not presume to understand the risk factors inherent in the genetic modification of living organisms. All I want to know is what I am actually eating when I buy my food at a local grocery store. Is that too much to ask? It really bothers me that our government, the elected body which is supposed to not only represent the

wishes of the people, but also keep them informed of what transpires in our legislature, seems to feel it can do whatever it wishes without informing or involving the citizens they serve. Whether it’s federal government funding going to privately owned oil companies or some other issue that affects the environment, too many things are being done without our knowledge. We all have a vested interest in the environment; after all, it’s where most of us live and breathe. In the past few years I have written about a number of changes that were made by the federal government which, upon close examination, appeared to have been designed specifically to essentially eliminate the need for any environmental assessment when it came to the construction of dams, bridges, pipelines and pretty well any other sort of invasive structures that will impact the environment. The government has typically been able to achieve this sleight of hand by re-defining a

word such as “navigation” within the Navigable Waters Protection Act (NWPA) and exempting certain other words such as “minor waters” and “minor works” from the act. This sort of blatant manipulation is done by the very politicians and public officials who are supposed to be protecting the environment. Such an attitude worries me. As the Canadian people, we look to our government to do the right thing by us. Some day, 100 years from now, the environment will likely look drastically different. We will certainly live in a world where genetic modification is both better understood and, to a greater or lesser degree, accepted. Part of me is glad that I won’t be around to worry about it and part of me is curious enough to want to see such a world. While there is a need for a change in this current government’s attitude, I suspect the only thing that will not have changed all the much in 100 years, will be the attitude of government.

Personal attack versus critical thought Yvonne Nairn’s Shuswap Market News letter (Jan. 16) is a remarkably instructive example of how not to meaningfully participate in public discussion and discourse. Personal attacks, often gratuitous ‘name calling’ as in Yvonne Nairn’s letter, is what rational, critical thinkers and communicators

term “the argumentum ad hominem,” that is, the fallacy of attacking the character of an individual who is advancing a statement or an argument – instead of trying to disprove the truth of the statement or the soundness of the argument. The statement or argument at issue is simply dropped from con-

sideration or is ignored outright, and an attack on the writer’s/speaker’s character is used in an attempt to influence opinion. It should be no surprise to readers that such name calling is counterproductive, and has been shown, over and over again, to have no standing, or value, in reasonable debate and

200 g

communication. Perhaps its only value is to serve as an extraordinary, illustrative example of ‘argumentum ad hominem,’ the namecalling fallacy, for readers, writers,, educators – all of us, really – in the practice of appropriate critical thinking.

ists, I could not write this or that, or it was not in good taste. However, what can one do as the Observer picks and chooses what appears in “their” paper. In reading the recent letter (Shuswap Market News Jan. 16/15) from Yvonne Nairn that takes personal shots at a writer (Tom Crowley) where she points

out that Mr. Crowley has a “pointy nose and he is a fool.” Hardly shows the editing qualities of the Observer in my opinion. In any future submissions Yvonne Nairn wants to submit, she might want to reconsider her need to add personal comments in her rebuttals against

Seeking action on climate change An open letter to Premier Christy Clark: Now that global meteorological organizations (NOAA, NASA, JMO) have placed 2014 officially on record as being the warmest year on record, and given that the predictions are that the next El Nino year will be much, much warmer, what concrete things are you doing to mitigate and try to reverse human-caused global warming? I am not asking for generalities regarding

policy and planning, but rather for specific concrete actions that you and the government of British Columbia are doing to protect future generations

from the damage we are doing to this planet. Thank you in advance for a reasoned and detailed response. Rick Shea

Annual General Meeting

Centre gets age-friendly funding By Barb Brouwer

MARKet NeWS StAff

Copper Island Seniors Resource Centre has been granted $20,000 through the province’s 2015 Age Friendly Community Planning and Projects. Funded by the Ministry of Health’s Seniors’ Housing and Support Initiative and administered by the Union of British Columbia Municipalities, the money will support age friendly community planning. The centre will receive $14,000 or 70 per cent of the funding now and the other 30 per cent after UBCM receives a satisfactory final report

and financial summary. All project activities must be completed within 12 months. The announcement, terms and conditions of the project were detailed in a letter to the Columbia Shuswap Regional District and presented at the board’s Jan. 15 board meeting. Electoral Area C South Shuswap director Paul Demenok said he is pleased to be given the $20,000. “I know they desperately needed money,” he said noting feedback to the recently opened centre has been positive. “They provide Better

At Home services, meal services and a whole host of other services for seniors.” Demenok also thanked CSRD financial manager Jodi Kooistra for getting the application together to meet the grant deadline. Area F director Larry Morgan told directors he would like to look at same opportunity for North Shuswap.

INFORMATION DESIGNED TO PROMOTE AND ENHANCE YOUR WELLBEING

Ten tips to make 2015 your healthiest year yet! Ten Tips to Make 2015 Your Healthiest Year Yet! January marks the start of a new calendar year and for many of us it is both a time to reflect and to look ahead. If improving health and wellness is on your radar check out these 10 little tips that can have a BIG impact. ➊ Say good-bye to tobacco. Tobacco use continues to be the leading cause of preventable death and illness in Canada. Stopping smoking is the single best action you can take for your health. Benefits of quitting smoking begin almost immediately. For more information, visit www.quitnow.ca. ➋ If you drink, do so safely. Alcohol is the second leading risk factor for death, disease, and disability in Canada. If you choose to drink, follow Canada’s Low Risk Drinking Guidelines. The guidelines were developed to help Canadians reduce the risk of both short and long-term alcohol-related harm. ➌ Take steps to prevent injuries. Injuries are a big deal. They claim lives, send people to hospital, and leave people disabled. Injuries are the leading cause of death in B.C. for those under the age of 44 and the fourth leading cause of death across all age groups. Approximately 90 per cent of injuries are predictable and preventable. Find out more at www.preventable.ca. ➍ Practice stress management. Stress is a normal part of life but when it happens too often or lasts too long, it can cause problems. Stress is linked to headaches, nausea, back pain, and trouble sleeping. It can also weaken the immune system. Take steps to lower stress and reduce tension.

➎ If you are having trouble coping, talk to someone. If you feel depressed, anxious, or overwhelmed it’s often helpful to talk about it. Your family doctor and community-based counsellors are available to help. ➏ Learn about your medications. Medicines work in a delicate balance with your body and with each other. Tell your doctor or pharmacist about all the medications you are taking, including supplements and herbal remedies. Educate yourself about side effects and possible interactions at www.healthlinkbc.ca. ➐ Wash your hands often. Germs can spread easily through contact with any surface. Once they get on your hands, they spread by simple acts like rubbing your nose or your eyes. Regular hand washing can help you avoid picking up and spreading colds, flu, and other viruses. ➑ Get your shots. Keeping you and your family up to date with vaccinations is a great way to help everyone

Shuswap Market News Friday, January 23, 2015 

A brief look at Lee Creek’s history ShuSwAp pASSion Jim Cooperman The history of the tiny, unincorporated community of Lee Creek, home to the world famous Adams River salmon run, serves as a prime example of how the Shuswap was settled and the determinants for success. The four key factors behind the viability of every rural community were economic capability, ethnic background, social cohesiveness and the individual strengths of pioneers. Lee Creek, like many other rural Shuswap communities, excelled in all but economics, as families depended upon income from work outside the community, which lacked extensive farmland. Permanent settlement began in 1906, when Oliver Freeman moved from the family farm in Ontario to homestead 120 acres on the shore of the lake adjacent to Lee Creek. His sister, Isobel and her husband Alex McKay soon joined him and in the following years came the Dempsters, Beatties, Cornings, Hopwoods, Lockerbys and more McKays. All were “back to the land” idealists with British, Irish or Scottish backgrounds, which facilitated their cohesiveness. And of course they had to endure hardships and work hard to survive, but as the late

pioneer daughter Barbara McKay recalled, “It was what we did. Modern conveniences today make it seem like it was hard work.” Only the bachelor Oliver Freeman made a living off of his farm, as the other men worked elsewhere as carpenters, house painters, road engineers and cooks. With the men away working, the women had more work and responsibilities than in strictly farming communities. All of the families were dependent on being self-sufficient by growing large gardens and raising livestock, with much of this work left to the women. It was not simply their homegrown food or their earnings from elsewhere that helped the close-knit community flourish; it was also their vibrant social life. In the early days they travelled by boat, as there were few roads or bridges, to Sorrento and Blind Bay for dances, concerts and celebrations. They also gathered in their own homes for evening gettogethers with music or games and lively conversations. By 1919, there were enough children to require a local school. The community worked together and in just two months, using lumber from Oliver Freeman’s sawmill, the small oneroom school was built. In those days, the only government assistance was to provide some funds for construction, the teacher and their salary. The community organized their own school board and collected funds each year to cover maintenance expenses. As in other rural

communities, the small one room school soon became the social hub for dances, church services, occasional political meetings, and school parties for every holiday. The major event of the year was the Christmas concert, for which the entire community contributed to the festivities. At the end of the school year, there was the annual class picnic and during the summer there were picnics at the beach or sometimes at Copper Island. Another key to the success of the community was that the Lee Creek women were intelligent, creative and well-liked individuals who arrived with essential skills. Mrs. Connie Beattie was a nurse who provided medical assistance to her neighbours when needed. Despite being a city girl, Mrs. Corning was able to persevere the isolation and hardships of living with their infant son in a tent when her husband went off to war in 1917, thanks to her love of reading. One pioneer remembered visiting one day and finding her sawing firewood with a cross-cut saw while at the same time reading a French novel! Of course social attitudes in Lee Creek were not always positive. Harry Hopwood was the only remittance man in the community, and his wife Nancy was a half-breed. They lived in a small log house with eight children and they had to endure the typical prejudice of the times. When their children were needed to open the school, they had to be coaxed to come. Only the girls at-

tended and sometimes they were teased. Yet, there were some good times as well, especially the winter sledding parties when Mrs. Hopwood would invite the children in for sandwiches and hot chocolate. Lee Creek was a successful, small pioneer community as evidenced by the school that the pioneers established cooperatively and by their ability to cope with the isolation

Select the right oil for the job HealtHy BiteS Serena Caner I learned my lesson about overheating oils in grade seven. My mom was in hospital getting surgery, leaving dad to run the kitchen. My father has always been an ambitious man, so for his cooking debut, he decided to tackle sweet and sour pork. The wok was on the stove top, the pork prepped, the oil heating… and then the phone rang. This was before the advent of the cordless phone, so off he went to answer the phone. The shrill of the smoke detector brought him back to a huge fire on the stove top. Panicking, he took the

nearby plastic cutting board and threw it on top of the flames, trying perhaps to smother the flames. Soon, thick black smoke filled our kitchen, which now needed repainting. Needless to say, I am yet to try my dad’s sweet and sour pork. When choosing cooking oil, it is important to keep a few things in mind. Most oils sold in stores are highly refined. While this decreases nutrition, it does improve their shelf life and smoke point. Smoke point refers to the temperature at which an oil starts to break down. Both smoking and rancid oil have higher freeradical content, thought to damage cells and increase risk of certain diseases and cancers. Rancid oil had a bad smell and should be discarded. While unrefined oils are more nutritious, they do have a lower smoke point and shelf

life. Storing in the refrigerator will prolong them. The smoke point of oil varies, but here are some guidelines: If you plan on bringing oil to a high heat, such as for frying or deepfrying, your best choice are oils with a higher smoke point. These include refined sunflower, peanut, corn, ghee and olive pomace oil. Oils with a mediumhigh smoke point, good for sauteing and baking, include grapeseed, canola and virgin olive oil. Cold-pressed

extra-virgin olive oil, unrefined sesame oil, unrefined high-oleic sunflower oil and flaxseed oil have lower smoke points, and are more intended for salad dressings and finishing dishes. Their shelf life will be extended by refrigeration. As I learned from my father, it is best not to let your cooking oil get too hot. Coincidentally, this follows Canada Food Guide recommendations of frying and deep-frying food less often.

The Heat travelled to Sicamous Jan. 14 to compete against their division rivals from the east end of the Shuswap. At game’s end, the team from the west took home a 6-1 win to take over second place in the division. Local 16-year-old Daniel Toews stopped 29 of 30 shots, some of them of the spectacular variety. In the first, the Eagles got on the board with their one and only marker. Chase got that back with a powerplay goal from Austin Willier assisted by Cody Hodges and Kaleb Boyle. In the second a Trevor Okino goal from Hayden Orton, and Alex Durbeniuk from Zachary Fournier and Orton gave Chase a 3-1 lead. In the third, it was Tyler Mork from Travis Beaubien, Kaleb Boyle from Chad Wilde and Orton from Toews who finished off the victory. Friday night, Jan. 16 found the Heat at the Revelstoke Forum for a match versus the Grizzlies. In one of the most exciting games of the season, the Chase crew earned a 3-2 win.

n Sicamous Eagle Owen Rowsell and Chase Heat D-man Cole Perison collide during Junior B action at the Sicamous and District Recreation Centre last Wednesday. The Heat smoked their Sicamous hosts 6-1. Michael “Stretch” Byer was phenomenal between the pipes, stopping all but two of the 58 shots fired his way. In front of 100 or so “Crazy Aussies,” Kaleb Boyle showed why he is a classy record holder, scoring all three of the Heat goals to earn a hat trick. Boyle’s first in the first was assisted by Chad Wilde and Kyle Riley and his second by Okino and Hodges. In the second, the Grizzlies got one back. In the third, Boyle got his 44th power-play goal of his career, assisted once again by Okino and Hodges. Travis “Boom Boom” Beaubien won a tilt nine minutes into the third that had the crowd going a bit crazier than they already were.

On Saturday, Jan. 17, the Heat hosted the city slickers from Kamloops. In the first, the Storm scored on their first shot 19 seconds in, and then Kolten Moore scored unassisted on a breakaway to tie things up. Then Kamloops scored and Okino got that one back assisted by Wilde and Boyle. By period’s end the Storm scored two more to hold a 4-2 edge. In the second, Kamloops scored three in a row prior to Boyle, on the powerplay, getting one from Hodges and Wilde (Boyle’s 45th all time). Kamloops was now up 7-3.

good hands. Every year, Larch Hills members are pulled in to accompany children from local elementary schools when they come up the hill on school ski outings. Jim and I were on deck when Bastion Elementary brought a couple of classes up just before the loppet. My group was made up of very keen and capable boys and girls who just wanted to get out there and ski – and hopefully find a big hill to practise downhill techniques on. Great fun. Most of these kids will be skiing in the Pirate Loppet on Friday, Jan. 30 so we checked out the five-kilometre course, then headed for Rollercoaster. Unfortunately, it had not been track set and was crusty but that did not deter my gang of adventurers. We all managed the hill very well – tumbles and all. Good luck to all skiers in the Pirate Loppet.

The race team is heavy into racing – from Okanagan Cups to BC cups to the Western Canadian Championships, Larch Hills Nordics racers have garnered excellent results. Come Feb. 21 the team will be in Kelowna at the BC Championships to defend last year’s provincial champion status. Go Larch Hills! Go to our website: www.skilarchhills,ca for the conditions and daily trail report. A Larch Hills Nordic Society meeting is set for Tuesday, Feb. 3, Room 1, Community Centre, 7 p.m. It will include a report on the status of our strategic plan. All current and prospective members are welcome. Think snow!

It is always so entertaining with the “swashbuckling” volunteers, most kids dressed up as pirates (and wenches), skull and crossbone flags, and the Monashee Mountain Men at the start line. A note to parents: When considering your kids’ clothing for the Pirate Loppet, think lightweight, and layers. Many is the skier who has worn his/her snow suit for the event and has a miserable time because it is too hot. Take the snow suit, for sure, but save it for after – for playing in the snow, and hanging out having the lunch provided. With 400 skiers from grades three to seven from Revelstoke to Armstrong to Chase it promises to be a terrific day.

“You can’t beat this!,” remarked my friend Vic as we were strapping on our poles to leave the chalet for a long ski on Monday. A winter wonderland, sunny, with the trees still white with snow, the prospect of 30 kilometres of track-set trails ahead of us, and easy waxing. Vic Emery, who has skied Nordic ski areas all over the world, is really impressed with the Larch Hills. Perhaps that is why he is back in Salmon Arm from London, England, having been here last January for the 30th Reino Keski-Salmi Loppet. And we locals all know how blessed we are to have this wonderful ski area! The 31st Reino Keski-Salmi Loppet last weekend was again a resounding success. With 411 skiers registered we had a very colourful and busy scene on the hill Saturday morning. Amazing how all 411 skiers, in the space of 15 minutes, in four starts, leave the start area and it is clear except for timers and other volunteers. Almost half of the participants were in the 13-and-under categories, which speaks well for the youngsters, their parents and their Jackrabbit and race team coaches. The sport is in

Airport improvements could get boost from fuel sales By Martha Wickett

MARKET NEWS STAFF

Sicamous Business Directory

Forest fires may be bad for inhabited areas, but they’re good for fuel sales – and, in turn, good for airport improvements. Coun. Alan Harrison gave a report at the Jan. 12 council meeting in his new role as council representative on the Shuswap Regional Airport Operations Committee, and reviewed minutes from its last meeting. Harrison noted that former airport repre-

sentative Coun. Chad Eliason had suggested previously that profits above the annual budgeted amount for fuel sale revenue be placed in a reserve for airport improvement projects. “In years where there are few forest fires there are limited fuel sales,” Harrison explained, noting that council will be hearing about a project in the new long-term plan to make the airport safer and more functional. Harrison said the new airport plan should be completed this year.

First is an environmental review to determine contaminated sites, as the airport was once used for a garbage dump. Then come airport expansion ideas and deciding where to spend money. Rob Niewenhuizen, the city’s director of engineering and public works, said the first draft plan should be available this month with a final report in May. Coun. Ken Jamieson asked about the rationale for not allowing more metal containers at the airport.

Niewenhuizen said because the development plan is not yet complete it’s not known what will be done regarding hangers in the future. Also, in terms of esthetics, containers

shouldn’t be used for storage as they’re meant for storage of aircraft. He said one has been allowed for storage of air cadet equipment because the cadets no longer had a building.

A celebration of her memory, with coffee and cake as she would have done it, was held on Saturday January 17th, 2015 from 2:00 to 4:00 pm at 1521 Church Avenue, Saanich, BC. In lieu of flowers, donations to the BC Alzheimer’s Society would be greatly appreciated. Sincere thanks to the caring staff at Mt Tolmie, and Dr Lane Woodburn. Condolences may be offered to the family at www.mccallbros. com.

NICK SITKO Nick Sitko died suddenly of a heart attack at 80 years of age at Shuswap Lake General Hospital, Salmon Arm, BC on January 6, 2015. A tribute to Nick Sitko Service and Fellowship was held at Shuswap Lake Estates Community Center Hall (River of Life Church) Blind Bay, BC, at 2:30 pm. The full obituary and memorial slideshow as well as online condolences may be viewed and read at ww.bowersfuneralservice.com EDWARD (TED) MARTYN WHITEHEAD Sicamous – Ted Whitehead, 86, died on January 7th, 2015 at the Salmon Arm Hospital. He leaves his wife of 62 years, Eileen (Laing) Whitehead; 3 daughters, Leslee Lucy (Jim Adams), Susan Bondar (Brian), Judy Collins (Colin Campbell); 3 sons, Bob Whitehead (Sue), Mike Whitehead (Diane) and Ken Whitehead (Rena). He also leaves 16 grandchildren, 25 greatgrandchildren, sister-in-law Mary Edmiston and many nieces and nephews. Ted was born in Miami Manitoba on April 28th, 1928 and raised in Roland Manitoba. In 1946, he moved to British Columbia with ambitions based on memories of a poster he had seen in a Greyhound bus terminal showing the Big Bend Highway. After his move to BC, he worked as an electrician and managed to collect some personal wealth – a new Cadillac convertible and a motor cycle. This is when he met his future wife, Eileen. She was a young nurse in training, born and raised in New Westminster. They were married on October 3, 1952. Through circumstance, Ted became a logger. After one year of marriage and the first baby, Leslee; they moved to Nelson Island, an isolated area on the Sunshine Coast near Pender Harbour. Ted and Eileen spent the next 4 years on the island. Ted was driven to learn his new career of logging. Two more babies were created on the island, Susan and Bob. There was a collapse in the log market and they were forced to move. Ted purchased a saw mill and logging camp in the Caribou. This was another remote area which was on the west side of the Fraser River. The family now included Mike, baby number 4. Soon after the acquisition of the saw mill, lumber prices totally collapsed into a recession. Around this time, Ted and Eileen had a chance to visit family in Sicamous. Eileen told Ted, “I don’t know where you are going to live, but I am not leaving here. Find some way to make a living”. Ted and Eileen moved to Sicamous in March of 1961. Shortly after moving there, Judy was born, baby number 5. Ted did find work. He became a mechanic during the construction of the Roger’s Pass Highway. Meanwhile, Ken arrives as baby number 6. Ted carries on with many careers including: supervisor of mill construction, house building, mechanic shop, gas station, logging, steel fabrication and site preparation for reforestation. A highlight during Ted’s work life was supervising the construction of a plywood plant in Columbia, South America in 1970. Ted finally retired at 72 years old. He took on the hobby of woodworking during retirement and created many wooden items for the family. Ted and Eileen travelled across Canada and into the north many times. Ted helped with the creation of the Sicamous Curling Rink and was on the Water Board for several years. He leaves many stories behind and was able to laugh at himself. In lieu of flowers, memorial gifts may be made to the Shuswap Hospital Foundation in Ted’s name. Ted was looked after extremely well by the staff and doctors at the hospital. There was a memorial held in Sicamous on January 17th to celebrate Ted’s life.

Cards of Thanks

Feeling quite humbled by the chilling experience of the recent fire in our trailer park. I have a new appreciation of the many safety workers who came to our aid. Giving my thanks to those courageous people going into the unknown; unaware of what they may find. The reward for these jobs may not always be a pleasant ones. These hard working people sacrificed their good nights sleep to care for us. An enormous generosity on their part. A heart felt thank you. D. New Chase B.C. MY name is Destaney Dean and I am a Grade 7 student. For the past two years, some friends and I have raised $1,300 for Movember - $600 last year and $700 this year. Thank you to Walmart for matching the funds we raised helping to raise awareness and thank you to the community for your generous donations. See you next Movember. Thank you to nurses & staff at the hospital & ambulance, Dr. Beech & Dr. Schneider for all their thoughtfulness. Thanks for good neighbours, friends & especially family Eileen Whitehead

Pearl (Becher) Sumner July 23, 1928 December 27, 2014

In loving memory we announce the passing of Pearl Sumner at St John Hospice, UBC. Pearl was relocated to Vancouver in June to better meet the challenges of cancer which she faced with the remarkable courage, grace and optimism that characterized her life. Born in Kindersley Saskatchewan as the eldest of 6 she is pre-deceased by brother Jim Hayden, sister Sylvia Hayden, and survived by sisters Shirley White, Marlene Clarke, and Ellen Cashen. Pearl was predeceased by her first husband of 46 years, Kurt Becher and will be dearly missed by her husband of 21 years, Walter Sumner of Salmon Arm, and her two step daughters Elaine Shigatomi and Emily Nelson, three step grandchildren and 3 great step grandchildren. She was very proud of her 17 beloved grandchildren and 10 great grandchildren by her nine adoring children: Alice Thorner, Tom Becher, Lynda Kazanowski, Randy Becher, Robert Becher, Mary Ann Becher, Nancy Theissen, Harley Becher, and Shannon Ekkel. Pearl’s warm smile and twinkling eyes will be fondly remembered by her extended family and many friends throughout the Columbia and Okanagan Valleys where she resided over the last 70 years. While a dedicated mother devoted to the tumult of her large family, she touched many throughout British Columbia with her serene and caring heart, her enthusiasm and love for the beauty in life, and her relentless spirit to make the best of it. She was a classy lady. Condolences may be sent to: x10u8ing@shaw.ca. A Celebration of Life will be scheduled for a later date.
