Neskonlith to hold second election By Martha Wickett

markEt nEws staff

Although the Neskonlith Indian Band held an election of chief and council in January, another election is in the offing. Electoral officer Bruce Mack

posted notice that an election will be held on Thursday, July 30 for chief and four councillors. Coun. Louis Thomas, who was acclaimed as councillor for Salmon Arm in the January election, will retain his seat on council because, as the lone candidate, there was no

election for his position. A nomination meeting was held on Tuesday, June 9 in Neskonlith Hall in Chase, where unofficial results show three people were nominated as candidates for chief and 10 for the four council positions. Mack told the Market News there

was an appeal of the election which was upheld by an adjudicator. “There certainly wasn’t any inappropriate behaviour or action on the part of any candidate,” Mack explained. See Ten on page A2

New RCMP officer to take command The Salmon Arm RCMP Detachment will be headed by the current top cop in Sicamous, come the end of this month. Sgt. Andrew Hunter, who has been filling two roles as acting detachment commander and operations commander, introduced a new face to Salmon Arm council

at its June 8 meeting. Sgt. Scott West is leaving the Sicamous detachment and will be taking over as Salmon Arm’s new detachment commander, tentatively on June 22. West said he’s had diverse experience in his career, which has included nearby postings in Kelowna and Kam-

loops as well as farther north. He said it’s key to quickly identify who’s carrying out crimes and to deal with them as speedily as possible. Central to his philosophy is listening to the community. “What’s important to them is important to me,” he said. “That’s

my philosophy.” West said he and his spouse and two children live in Salmon Arm, where he’s been drawn in to coaching and referee roles. Once West takes over as detachment commander, Hunter will be devoting all his time to his job as operations commander.

Ten people vying for four council positions Continued from front Mack said in the Neskonlith election code, a person is ineligible to run for band council if they have any outstanding debts to the band. However, for administrative reasons, Mack said, that was waived for the last election. Someone then ap-

pealed on the basis that it was a breach of the code, he said, and the adjudicator agreed. Unofficial nomination results show that vying for the chief’s position, now filled by Chief Judy Wilson who was elected in January for her third term, are Wilson, Janice Billy and Randy Narcisse. Narcisse ran for chief in the last elec-

tion but Billy did not. Bonnie Thomas ran for the chief’s position in the January election, placing second, but she did not put her name forward this time. Nine candidates competed for the five council spots in January. Along with Louis Thomas, three incumbents were elected – Art Anthony, Karen

R. August and Joan Manuel-Hooper – as well as newcomer Fay Ginther. This time, the 10 people nominated (unofficially) for the four open positions are the four candidates elected last time, as well as: Margaret Denault, Frank Denault, Randy Sam, Jennifer Dick, Renee Narcisse and Dwayne Manuel.

Salmon River Bridge: Minister promises input will be considered. Design of the four-laning of the Trans-Canada Highway and replacement of the Salmon River Bridge is not a done deal. NDP MLA Claire Trevena, Opposition critic for the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure, was looking for timelines and costs during the recent provincial government budget estimates. She was given the opportunity to ask Minister Todd Stone questions about the Trans-Canada Highway, ones that included the Shuswap. Trevena told Stone that when she visited Salmon Arm in April the concern arose that the consultation process regarding plans for the west end of town was completely inadequate. Stone said there have been two rounds of public engagement. “One was 2012, which was the broader Trans-Canada Highway engagement seeking public input on what the next round of priorities should be for the highway. In 2014 we did the second round of engagement, which was the B.C.

She also asked for specifics on timelines and costs for four-laning the Trans-Canada Highway. “So $10-million per kilometre – can the minister give a dollar figure for the four-laning? And can he give a timeline for when this four-laning will happen? We’ve had the billboards up since 2009…” Stone said the estimate to complete the four-laning from where it stops, in the Pritchard area, to the Alberta border is about $6 billion, but he didn’t provide a time line. He said projects the ministry is doing in the Shuswap include: design work on Salmon Arm West; work at Hoffman’s Bluff; and design work on the two sections that would go from Hoffman’s Bluff up to Jade Mountain, just east of Chase. “Part of the consideration moving forward is that the federal government, in terms of Build Canada funding and their willingness to partner on projects, don’t tend to like the province to get too far out in front of them in terms of announcing projects before funding has been approved,” Stone said.

Program inspires aboriginal learner Forty years is a long time to be away from a classroom. For Splatsin Nation spiritual helper and elder Edna Felix it proved to be the opportunity to change her life’s course. After her husband passed away, Felix found herself struggling to balance working odd jobs with the responsibilities of caring for her four children and two foster children (who are also her grandsons). Finding it difficult to secure work with only a Grade 8 education, Felix turned to social assistance. She credits a social worker who mentioned the Stepping Forward program offered at Okanagan College’s Salmon Arm campus for broadening her horizon and leading her to gainful employment. “I was nervous heading into the program but through learning I understood that my life experience in and of itself had been an education,” says Felix. “The program teaches essential skills for the work place, and also valuable life skills, including goal setting. I realized I already had many of these skills, but simply needed to hone them.” Within the classroom, Felix took a role in mentoring the younger students, her peers. For an essay assignment she wrote about the history of the Shuswap people, her husband, and the land, culture and her family tree. The 21-week Stepping Forward program, offered through the Continuing Studies department at the college, provides pre-employment skills and essential skills training, as well as adult basic education upgrading. It incorporates traditional First Nations heritage teachings and culture through aboriginal work history, medicine wheel, and drumming workshops. According to Felix, the qualifications and certifications (including FoodSafe, First Aid, and Camp Cook) she received during

n Edna Felix is moving forward with a career change after participating in the Okanagan College Stepping Forward program. the program were crucial to her finding employment. She is currently employed as a dishwasher and prep cook at the Wicked Spoon in Salmon Arm. Felix has set a long-term goal of opening and managing an elders’ home. She has already applied to Okanagan College’s Health Care Assistant program and is building her work experience to encompass all aspects of owning a care facility, including as a cook and janitor. “If I am to be a supervisor, I need to know what needs to be done and how to do it so that I can say I understand the roles of the job.” The Stepping Forward program offered at Okanagan College was developed in co-ordination with First Nation partners to provide a well-rounded education program for aboriginal learners experiencing barriers to employment, including lack of high school graduation, work and life skills training. Felix’s class included 24 students from a combination of the Neskonlith Band, Adams Lake Band, Little Shuswap Lake Band, and Splatsin Nation. All 24 graduated in March. Funding for the program has been provided through the Canada-British

Columbia Job Fund Agreement. The Ministry of Advanced Education supported the program with funds from the Aboriginal Community Based Delivery Partnership Program. Participating students pay no fees. “This program truly is transformative and benefits such a diverse array of students,” says Caroline Chartier, aboriginal transition planner at Okanagan College’s Salmon Arm campus. “Some have been through residential schools, some not, some are mature students, others still in their late teens. Chartier says that while some students initially arrive apprehensive about the idea of school and education, the program creates a safe place to learn, and affords them the opportunity to experience and belong to the college community. In some cases, it has inspired the students to consider higher education beyond the program. “We are very proud of these students. Some are gainfully employed, others are pursuing further education, and a handful are in the process of job interviews. They are now better equipped to be able to support themselves and earn steady income,” says Chartier.

Enderby residents seeking bus service to Salmon Arm By Richard Rolke BlaCk PrEss

There is growing demand to enhance transit service for Enderby residents. City council voted to ask the Regional District of North Okanagan to lobby B.C. Transit to consider adjusting the service level for the route between Enderby and Salmon Arm. “Three-quarters of our social services are in Salmon Arm and one-quarter are in Vernon but all of our transit goes to Vernon,” said Mayor Greg McCune. Currently, there are four bus trips daily

to Vernon weekdays, while the bus only goes to Salmon Arm first thing Wednesday morning and returns late afternoon that same day. Because there aren’t multiple return trips Wednesday, residents can be stranded in Salmon Arm for hours. “If you are heading up there to hand in your Employment Insurance card, it’s inconvenient,” said McCune. Concerns about transit were raised during a recent meeting between the city and providers of community services. “The limited avail-

ability of public transit poses an access barrier for many residents,” said Tate Bengtson, Enderby’s chief administrative officer, in a report. B.C. Transit is being urged to provide a cost estimate and ridership expectations for the various frequencies of service. “Everyone sees the need and I’m not sure if cost is a factor because the need is so great,” said McCune. Beyond social services, many Enderby residents travel to Salmon Arm for shopping, work and medical appointments.

Swan Lake pans electoral change By Richard Rolke BlaCk PrEss

The B.C. Electoral Boundaries Commission has been told to back off changes in Greater Vernon. Eric Foster, VernonMonashee MLA, told the commission Wednesday that he doesn’t support a plan to remove the Swan Lake area and a portion of the BX from VernonMonashee and put it in the Shuswap constituency.

“People in the BXSwan Lake corridor are part of the Greater Vernon area and they have no connection to Salmon Arm,” said Foster. Foster says he’s concerned Swan Lake/BX residents will have a difficult time receiving assistance if their MLA is based in a Salmon Arm office. The proposed electoral area district boundary would follow the Vernon municipal boundary around Swan Lake and Silver Star

Foothills to the Spallumcheen boundary. Foster has discussed the boundary issue with Greg Kyllo, current MLA for Shuswap. “He already has a huge riding and to add more on to his geographical plate would be difficult,” said Foster. The commission is reviewing input from the public and MLAs on its proposals and a final report will be presented to the Legislature Sept. 25.

Reconciliation at the local level

We’ve got the report from the Truth and Reconciliation commission now, but what happens from here? Seven years ago, Prime Minister Stephen Harper issued a formal apology for the residential school system and the Truth and Reconciliation commission began its work. The resulting report is damning, including an accusation that Canada was committing cultural genocide. The report also made it clear this wasn’t a problem of the distant past, but a very real issue still affecting First Nations people today. After all, as the report points out, the government compelled aboriginal parents to give up their children until the late ’60s, tearing an estimated 150,000 children out of their homes to send them to schools where they were taught their culture, their language and their very identity was worthless. The consequences still echo down through the generations. That’s not an easy thing to bear, even for the collective conscience of a country. But is the issuing of this report going to change anything? Since Harper’s apology on behalf of Canada, change has been slow. Over the last five years, the Department of Indian Affairs has held back $1 billion in spending that should have been targeted at social services. We can hope that the government will act on the 94 recommendations in the report, especially those aimed at breaking down the barriers of prejudice, and the lack of resources in schools, hospitals and prisons. But even if the federal government fails to act, we can, and should, continue to work at the local level building relationships and agreements between our communities for the benefit of all. – Penticton Western News

OPINION

Published by Black Press Ltd. 171 Shuswap Street NW, Salmon Arm, B.C.

Tall grizzly tale from a storyteller For as long as man and beast have wondered the mountains and valleys of the western part of this continent, the grizzly bear has been head honcho, numero uno, lord of its domain, top of the food chain as it were. Feared and respected by all, not much gets in their way – not much that gets to live and tell about it afterwards. Going back to the earliest of times, First Nations people have told stories about grizzly bears that have been passed on in their myths and legends. More than one modern day book has been written about grizzlies (Ursus arctos horribilis) and close encounters with this powerful, intelligent and sometimes unpredictable creature of the wild. Grizzlies, which are actually a sub-species of the brown bear, once lived throughout much of western North America and even roamed the Great Plains. However, European settlement eliminated much of its range and today only an estimated 20,000 of these magnificent creatures still roam the wilds of Canada –

THE GREAT OUTDOORS James Murray many protected within the boundaries of our national park system. Did I ever tell you about the time I got chased up a tree by a grizzly? I was walking through the prettiest little alpine meadow you ever saw – all laid out in waves of soft purple, pink and pale yellow flowers and minding my own business, when all of a sudden, a grizzly pops its head up out of the tall grass not a hundred feet in front of me. I don’t know who was more surprised, but I decided not to hang around and chat. I headed for the nearest tree, with that old bear hard on my heels. I could feel its foul

smelling breath on me as I ran. I could hear it crushing everything underfoot in its wake as it charged after me. Somewhere in the back of my mind I thought I remembered that grizzly bears can’t climb up trees very well – because of their size and weight. All I knew as I ran was that I hoped the theory was true. I’d just made it up the tree to safety, when that old bear starts to shake the tree for all it was worth, trying to shake me down. It’s amazing how fear can give a body strength. I hung on with all the strength and perseverance I could muster. The harder he shook, the harder I hung on, and in the end, well, that bear just sort of hunkered down at the base of the tree, looking up. I guess he was figuring on waiting me out, while I hung on for dear life looking down into its cold, hungry eyes. Anyway, that bear and I spent the next three days and nights trying to outstare each other. On the morning of the fourth day, just when I was

starting to get worried that my days on this earth might be numbered, the bear up and starts heading off towards a nearby stream. I figured this was my chance to get away, so I waited a minute, just to be sure, and then started making my way down the tree. I was not even halfway down when that bear came back with a live beaver in its mouth. He set the beaver down and sure enough it starts to gnaw away at the bottom of the tree. I couldn’t help but feel that all of nature was conspiring against me. It would only be a matter of time before I’d be a goner. Now if you want to find out how I managed to get myself away from that old grizzly, you will have to come out to Fort Steel Heritage Town, near Cranbrook, where I am going to be storyteller in residence over the summer months through to the end of September. I might even tell you the story about the fish that used to follow me around like a puppy dog.

EVAN BUHLER/MARKET NEWS

Avoid the experience of food poisoning

HEALTHY BITES Serena Caner Food poisoning episodes are something we remember. Unfortunately, my most memorable event was my own fault. I bought fresh kidney beans at a market in Malawi. Returning to my home, I left them in a plastic bag out in the sun. The next day, the humidity and condensation had caused the beans to sprout. Having eaten many other “bean sprouts” in the past, I decided to give them a try. Their flavour was not memorable, but their effect was – that evening, every food I had eaten in the last

seven days was expelled from my body. Later, research led me to discover that kidney bean sprouts contain a toxin called lectin. My food-borne illness was likely caused by the toxic substance in the bean itself, rather than the way I had stored the food. In Canada, it is estimated that there are about four million cases of food-borne illness every year. With summer here, picnics and barbecues provide ideal opportunities. Warm environments are the preferred breeding place for most microorganisms, and in food safety, we refer to temperatures between five and 60 degrees Celsius “the Danger Zone.” These are the temperatures where bacteria can multiply most readily. Luckily, most foodborne illness can be prevented by taking measures to prepare

and store your food safely. This summer when you are handling food, keep the following tips in mind, to decrease your chance of getting sick: • Wash your hands – hands provide an easy way for micro-organisms to travel from one place to another. • Separate raw foods from cooked foods. Use separate cutting boards and knives for handling raw foods. • Cook thoroughly – make sure the juices of poultry and meat run clear, not pink. Heat soups and stews to 70C (almost boiling). • Keep foods at safe temperatures – hot food should stay hot and cold food cold. Do not keep cooked food at room temperature for more than two hours. Hold food below 5C (refrigerator temperature) or above 60 degrees (a low simmer). • Use safe water and raw materials. Wash

raw fruits and vegetables and do not use food beyond its expiry date. •. Be careful sprouting your own beans! Many beans are toxic when sprouted. -Serena Caner is a registered dietician who works at Shuswap Lake General Hospital.

Bob........... Is old, really old. Looking at him he would appear to have had a pretty rough life. It’s likely his mousing days are over and so he has spent the last part of his life sneaking food from bowls around the neighborhood. Bob had some pretty nasty wounds from being bitten and scratched but he is mostly healed up now. Bob sleeps a lot but he loves his canned food and some scratches on the back of his neck when he’s up and about. The kind of home that Bob needs is a quieter home where he can be indoors is ideal and with other friendly cats is fine. If Bob pulls at your heart strings like he did at ours how about coming in to meet him? He wont be a long term commitment but we’d love to see him have a home of his own for the last chapter of his life.

This Saturday, hunderds of people will lace up their shoes and walk the track at Elk’s Park to honour those who have cancer and remember those who have died. For the first time in its 12-year history in Salmon Arm, Relay For Life will be held from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. “We’re hoping more of the general public will drop in during the day,” says Jen Dies, relay co-ordinator. Dies says the planning committee has done an outstanding job organizing activities that focus on health and wellness. The new Fitness with Local Super Heroes will include piyo, yoga, pilates, general fitness, reflexology, massage, reiki shiatsu, acupressure and skin analysis. Relay starts with a victory lap for survivors and caregivers. “For the second year

in a row, we are not going to release balloons,” says Dies. “They will be clumped together and visible as a reminder of why we are there.” Invitations in the form of large tickets were sent to 150 cancer survivors. Food and refreshments will be available and musical entertainment will help walkers step it up throughout the day, thanks to several local artists. At 8:30 in the evening, the luminary ceremony will begin. Luminaries are placed in memory of people who have died from cancer and in honour of those who are living with the disease. Each team has their own spot on the track so the luminaries are with their families, friends and teammates. “The luminary ceremony is incredibly important,” Dies says. “Relay is like a blockbuster movie – it makes you laugh, it makes you

n Yana Bonthuys watches the rope-making demonstation at the celebrations for the 100th anniversary of Tappen Co-op held Saturday, June 6.

Groups unite to purchase rail lands Three organizations have banded together in an effort to turn the old rail line from Sicamous to an area four kilometres south of Enderby into a recreational trail. The Splatsin First Nation, Columbia Shuswap Regional District (CSRD), and the Regional District of North Okanagan (RDNO) have approved a memorandum of understanding regarding pursuit of the

acquisition of the Canadian Pacific-owned Okanagan Shuswap Railway. This will be the foundation for collaboration for the proposed acquisition of the Okanagan Shuswap railway. Chief Wayne Christian says the memorandum of understanding and the opportunity to work together in pursuing the Okanagan Shuswap Railway will promote communica-

tion and strengthen relationships between their respective communities and residents. “We need to work together to invest in the region for all our people and our collective future,” he says. CSRD Board Chair Rhona Martin said she, too, is excited about the partnership. “This is a big step forward and I very much look forward to working with Splatsin and RDNO as this ini-

tiative is explored,” she said. “I hope this is the beginning of a long and successful working relationship between our communities.” Splatsin noted the community had successfully negotiated with CP Rail to acquire 11.7 hectares of the discontinued railway corridor between Sicamous and Armstrong in 2014. This includes a 1.5-km section south of Sicamous along the shores of Mara Lake.

CSRD invests in promoting agriculture Spreading the word about the Shuswap’s role as an agriculture producer is central to a request for proposals the Columbia Shuswap Regional District has issued. The RFP published on June 2, entitled ‘Agriculture brand and marketing for the Shuswap,’ states the regional district is inviting proposals from qualified consultants “to develop a co-ordinated marketing approach for Shuswap agriculture products and to provide education for communities in the Shuswap and beyond as to how important the agriculture industry is to the longterm sustainability of our communities.” It notes the project was identified as one

of the top priorities in the 2014 Shuswap Agriculture Strategy to

enable the agriculture industry in the region to grow and prosper.

The deadline for proposals is June 26.

Gateway to the North Shuswap

ShuSwap paSSioN Jim Cooperman The North Shuswap, like many other areas of the Shuswap, has seen major changes since settlement, as the economic base has shifted from agriculture to forestry to tourism and retirement. At its gateway is the small community of Lee Creek, which is known best for Roderick HaigBrown Park and the Adams River salmon run. Since its one-room school closed in 1954, the population of Lee Creek languished until a few small subdivisions were built in the 1970s. Now that Lee Creek is officially a secondary settlement, it may continue to grow as a summer destination primarily with new recreational vehicle lots and homes. The number of outdoor enthusiasts who visit Roderick HaigBrown Provincial Park continues to increase each year. The park’s extensive network of trails is ideal for hiking, biking, wildlife viewing, and in the winter, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing. One key scenic feature is the Adams River Gorge, which

is also a favourite for kayakers and rafters. If you pay attention to the sign at the bridge over Corning Creek, you will see the name Lee Creek is in parenthesis, as the creek has both an official name and a commonly used name. Back in March 1886, the Kamloops Sentinel reported on the Scotch Creek Stabbing Case, in which after heavy drinking, and an argument, Billy Lee was stabbed seven times by his partner Charles Arbbuckle. A later news item reported that he had recovered and that is when he likely built his cabin near the creek where he panned for gold and did some trapping. No other information about Lee is available, other than he was British, but the remains of his cabin are still there, rotting into the ground. When the first permanent settlers began arriving in 1906, they named their community Lee Creek after Billy Lee who had lived there until likely 1894, the year of the big flood. Ray Corning arrived in 1913 with his wife and young son and after attempting to homestead they moved to Salmon Arm where he worked as a highway engineer. The creek was renamed after Corning in the 1940s when the first road and bridge were built. Lee Creek’s first permanent homesteader, Oliver Freeman, utilized the creek for irrigation and to

power his sawmill. The 2011 census shows approximately 375 permanent residents of Lee Creek, although some may head south in the winter. The population increases substantially during the summer months when the seasonal residents return to their summer homes and recreational dwellings. The community includes a mix of typical sized lots, recreational lots, small acreages, and some tenants-in-common acreages, including one with its own community centre. Although it is primarily a bedroom community, Lee Creek also has an industrial area that is primarily located on the western edge of community where it does not disturb local residents. The large gravel pit and cement plant services many nearby communities and when combined with the electrical and plumbing contracting service, these industries provide a major source of local jobs. Close to the centre of the community is a log dump, where timber from nearby logging operations is stored on the water and then moved via a tugboat to Canoe in large log booms. Lee Creek made the national news when the protest against a proposed village and marina near the mouth of the Adams River was successful and the regional district denied

the permits. Development there is now limited to seasonal lots and was redesigned to protect environmental values and improve fish habitat. As well, the public now has access to one of the best beaches on Shuswap Lake. Few people are aware of the amazing potential hiking trails at Lee Creek, atop the bluffs overlooking the lake, along Corning Creek to a waterfall, and along the ridge of the canyon above the creek to the power line. The trails offer scenes of fire scarred old growth fir and pine trees, wildflowers in the spring, amazing vistas of the lakes, and a rapid transition from a dry hillside to a moist canyon with cedar and hemlock. Even more incredible is that few people, if any, have ever ventured up the canyon above the waterfall, in what is now protected riparian and old growth forest. There are plans to build a firehall in Lee Creek on a lot adjacent to the creek and the highway. It may include a small hall, which will give the community a place to come together again as they did in the one room schoolhouse during the early years and at a hall that was part of the old Cottonwood Campground. There is a special place in my heart for Lee Creek, as I have lived there since 1969.

INFORMATION DESIGNED TO PROMOTE AND ENHANCE YOUR WELLBEING

Protect yourself from ticks in the great outdoors (NC) Picture this: you’ve just come home from an outdoor adventure, perhaps after fishing, or hiking through the forest with your pet, or camping with your family. You’ve finished unloading your gear and have settled in for a nice quiet evening. You notice a bump or freckle on your leg but think nothing of it – you’re sure it was there before. What you don’t realize about that small speck is that it is actually a tick that’s just hitched a ride into your habitat. If you’re an outdoor enthusiast, you may be at a greater risk for tick bites – and certain ticks can cause Lyme disease. They’re very small, about the size of a poppy seed, and their bites are usually painless, so you may not know you have been bitten. One of the easiest ways to protect yourself is to prevent tick bites when engaging in outdoor activities. Use insect repellent with DEET or Icaridin, wear

closed-toe shoes, longsleeved shirts and pants and wear light-coloured clothes to spot ticks easier. Another way to protect yourself is to remove a tick from your body before it has

a chance to transmit Lyme disease. Removing ticks within 24 to 36 hours usually prevents infection. Ticks can attach anywhere, but they like certain spots. After you have been outdoors, make it a habit to ‘tick check’ these areas: • inside and behind the ears

• along your hairline • in your hair • armpits • belly button • groin area • on your legs • behind your knees

• between your toes To help your tick check: • Shower or bathe within two hours of being outdoors. This will wash away loose ticks and help you to find ticks that may be attached to you. • Don’t forget to examine your kids, pets and

even your gear. Ticks can enter your home on clothing and animals and attach to a person later. • Put your clothes in the hot dryer to kill any remaining ticks. Give them a good wash and pop them in the dryer one final time. Tip: Use a hand-held or full length mirror to check the back of your body or have someone else check it. If you find an attached tick, carefully remove it with a pair of tweezers. Monitor your symptoms, and if you feel ill in the weeks after a tick bite, contact your doctor right away. Next time you venture outdoors don’t forget to keep ‘tick checks’ at the top of your checklist. More information on Lyme disease plus ways to protect yourself, your children and your pets, is available at Canada.ca/LymeDisease www.newscanada.com

Make your backyard a ‘tick-safe zone’ to prevent Lyme disease (NC) As you dust off the patio furniture and bring out the kids’ swing sets for summer, consider taking extra steps to protect your family from tick bites. Certain ticks can spread serious illness like Lyme disease. While they’re typically found in forests and overgrown areas between the woods and open spaces, research tells us that tick populations are spreading.

It’s possible to be bitten outside of these locations. As you maintain your yard this season, follow these easy steps to help reduce tick habitats near your home: • Keep the grass mowed. • Remove leaf litter, brush and weeds at the edge of the lawn and around stonewalls and woodpiles. • Move children’s swing sets and sand boxes away

from the woodland edge and place them on a woodchip or mulch foundation. • Discourage rodent activity by cleaning up and sealing stonewalls and small openings around the home. • Move firewood piles and bird feeders away from the house. • Adopt hard landscape practices (using hard materials like stone and metals instead of soft materials like

Gardening in the slow lane Gaia GardeninG Margo Westaway

Why is it that the Universe seemingly punishes me when I go off to play for a few days, because inevitably all heck breaks loose while I’m away and then my newly relaxed and refreshed mind and body is immediately sent into high gear again. For instance, it turns out that a semi-truck used our power pole for target practice, which knocked out our telephone and Internet which can’t be fixed for another week with writing deadlines to meet in the meantime, a robin had made three messy nests above our deck with the makings of them strewn from one end of it to another, my one-pull wonder of a lawn mower didn’t start when my yard looked like a meadow and the weeds had seemingly been slipped a dose of steroids. Ugh! So many times when I’m off to the Coast, someone will say how much faster a trip it is now, but I rarely take the fast lane because it’s much more pleasant to take the slow lane so I can make a bunch of pit stops along the way on some of the prettier – though sometimes longer – routes.

I had a week to spend with our daughter on her school break and this time she wanted to ‘do’ Vancouver (which means mostly shopping to her), but I had the wheel, so we spent it my way in my old and familiar stomping grounds on the north and west shores, where I could navigate around the worst spots of the now insane traffic down there. Thankfully the weather was with us, so we strolled the Stanley Park and West Van seawalls, took in the expansive (and expensive) views from atop Grouse Mountain and scrambled over the smooth and warm rocks at Lighthouse and Whytecliff parks to watch all the boats and ferries go by while soaking up the sunshine and breathing in the scent of salt air and seaweed. Not only was it fun and relaxing, but it also served as a good reminder that the best things in life are usually free, and to enjoy beautiful days like that is way better than a shopping mall any day. (Even though she still had to get that out of her system.) One of the best parts of the week was to bask in the lushness of that rain forest region of towering woods full of ferns growing on the forest floor (my favourite plant) and the gardens bursting with foliage – particularly those regal rhododendrons, which were gigantic in some cases and all in full bloom. What a feast for the eyes to see those big

bouquet-like blossoms of white, red, pink, purple and mauve growing everywhere we went – wow - but the best treat in store for me was coming back home! Cruising slowly along the Hope-Princeton Highway, I stopped everywhere to enjoy the mountain meadows of the Cascades, inhale the heady scents of pine and sage along the Similkameen River and drink in the views of the Okanagan valley with all the glistening lakes and acres of orchards and wineries. For years I’ve missed the blooms at Pacific

“it’s always worth taking the slow lane if you can to enjoy our beautiful natural and man-made surroundings.”

Rhododendron Park, (located just within the western gates of Manning Park), but this time I hit it just right because of our early spring, so with camera in hand, I silently walked the winding trail through the woods to revel in the presence of the ‘rose trees of the forest.’ Now there’s nothing more lovely to me than to see that beautiful plant in a natural setting, growing between the trees on a carpet of green moss, with their branches reaching up to seek out the sun and the smaller and mostly

pink blossoms speckled by the light and shade, making it all feel like I was in some kind of enchanted forest. This is what the sign said about them: - ‘rhododendron comes from the Greek word meaning rose tree, and the Pacific rhododendron could compete with even the showiest of the hybrid roses. Reaching a sprawling height of up to eight metres, it surpasses many of its cultivated cousins. Of the 600 different species worldwide, only 27 varieties occur in North America, and because of it’s rarity, the Pacific rhododendron is protected by law. They are only found in isolated populations in Manning Park, the Skagit Valley, near Mt. Rainer, the Olympic peninsula and by Parksville and Shawnigan Lake on Vancouver Island. Their strategy to survive the nutrient-scarce forests is to form a strong partnership with a fungus called ectotrophic mycorrhiza, which exchanges sugars and water for carbon dioxide and sunlight.’ It’s always worth taking the slow lane if you can to enjoy our beautiful natural and man-made surroundings. So next time you plan a road trip to the Coast, allow yourself some time to not only stop and smell the roses, but to hopefully be rewarded by something extraordinary, like catching those rare roses of the forest too.

Gratitude to advocacy

DESCRIPTION OF PROPOSED LAWS: The Proposed Laws are a property taxation law and a property assessment law, both made under the authority of section 5( I)( a) of the FNFMA. The property assessment law provides for the assessment and valuation of interests in land on the reserve lands of the First Nation, including appointing assessors, inspecting propetty, preparing assessment rolls, and mailing assessment notices. The property assessment law also provides a process for reconsideration of assessments and for a right of appeal to an independent assessment review board. The property taxation law establishes a taxation regime that taxes interests in land in the reserve, and includes provisions for exemptions, grants, preparing tax rolls and tax notices, the levy of penalties and interest on unpaid taxes, and the collection and enforcement of unpaid taxes. A COPY OF THE PROPOSED LAWS may be obtained from: Iva Jules, Adams Lake Indian Band at 6453 Hillcrest Road, Chase, BC, or by going onto the First Nations Gazette website at www.fng.ca. COUNCIL OF THE FIRST NATION INVITES WRITTEN REPRESENTATIONS regarding the Proposed Laws. Written representations may be made to the Council for 60 days after the date of this notice.

n Matt Lepp recently had a liver transplant. He shows the battle scars that led to his life being saved. “Basically, doctors told me I wouldn’t have lived long enough to receive a donated organ.” Several family members were tested and cousin Stephanie Lepp Hickey – who Lepp said is more like a sibling and who is also in her mid-20s – was a

match. She flew into Edmonton’s University of Alberta Hospital from her home in Dallas, Tex., to donate 70 per cent of her liver to Lepp. The major surgery took Stephanie out of See Citizens on B2

Matt Lepp is grateful for Stephanie. She’s the reason he’s back to work at Treetop Flyers and why he’s able to make summer plans to go rock climbing and do other outdoor adventures. Because, when Lepp needed someone to give him part of their liver, Stephanie stepped up, quite possibly saving his life. “You can’t even describe it,” Lepp, 28, told  the newspaper. “It’s such a brave and selfless thing that someone would do for someone else. “I’m just grateful forever.” When Lepp was 18, he was diagnosed with primary sclerosing cholangitis – a slowly progressing disease that affects the ability for bile ducts to carry digestive liquid from the liver to the small intestine — and lived without symptoms for nearly a decade. In 2006, Lepp moved to Kamloops from Saskatchewan to study

tourism at Thompson Rivers University before he and others started the ziplining company in Chase. Symptoms of the disease began to surface last spring. It started with feelings of weakness, decreased energy and weight loss. The once seemingly dormant disease progressed to infections that landed him in the hospital. The doctor said he would need a transplant because, Lepp said, he was “basically in liver failure.” With high demand – more than 1,600 Canadians are added  to organ wait lists each year, according to the Canadian Transplant Association –  and a long wait list, Lepp’s doctor recommended he find a living donor, someone who would willingly donate part of their organ directly to him. “In my case, my MELD score [which determines one’s place on the transplant list] didn’t reflect how sick I was,” Lepp said.

NOTICE IS GIVEN, pursuant to section 6 of the First Nations Fiscal Management Act (hereafter referred to as the “FNFMA”), that the Adams Lake Indian Band (“The First Nation”) proposes to enact the Adams Lake Indian Band Property Assessment Law, 2015 and the Adams Lake Indian Band Property Taxation Law, 2015 (hereafter referred to as the “Proposed Laws”).

Directors vote for arena ice By Barb Brouwer

MARKET NEWS STAFF

Columbia Shuswap Regional District directors unanimously approved $5,500 from the Electoral Area F North Shuswap Community Works Fund to the Village of Chase for the rebuild of their Ice Kube Compressor. Infrastructure up-

grades to the tune of $30,000-plus are needed at the Chase and District Art Holding Memorial Arena, but not all upgrades are eligible for gas tax funds and Area F director Larry Morgan was interested only in supporting the compressor. Morgan told direc-

tors at the May 21 regional district board meeting in Salmon Arm that he had been approached by Chase Mayor Rick Berrigan with a list of arena items in need of replacement or repair. These included a $3,000 Zamboni repair, a $2,500 replacement of a new stereo

and speaker rebuild and a $5,000 (manual) to $25,000 (automatic) variable speed pump for water pumping. Other items include $1,200 each for red LED lights for the score clock, new penalty box board control for the score clock and ice paint for the 201516 season.

Citizens urged to become organ donors Continued from B1 work for a month and left Lepp with a scar that runs inches across and down his stomach. He also faced months of physiotherapy and will take anti-rejection medication for the rest of his life. Nonetheless, he has been left “feeling awesome.” “It’s a pretty amazing thing, organ donation, because you go from being sick and, in a lot of cases, being on the brink of death, to waking up and just feeling like a new person,” he said. “I’m feeling actually better than I ever have.” Eight months later, gratitude has turned to advocacy. Lepp hosted a gala in Kamloops last week to raise funds for the Canadian Transplant Association and spread the word about organ donation. Guest speakers included Lepp, Margaret Benson from the Canadian Transplant Association and Abby

The final item listed was $1,500 to repair/ replace eaves troughs on the building. “As we don’t have anything like that in Area F and residents over the years have used facilities in Chase, I thought it would be good to provide some assistance to our neighbour,” said Morgan.

Organ donation When Lepp looks at the numbers, he can rattle off reasons he thinks Canadians aren’t registering for organ donation. There’s forgetfulness, procrastination and even laziness but, mostly, he said, “people don’t want to think about it.” In reality, however, signing up to donate organs and tissue can save up to eight lives

and impact up to 75 others, according to the Canadian Transplant Association. Lepp is one of them. “Only about 25 per cent of Canadians are registered organ donors,” Lepp said. “About 90 per cent of people are in favour of it, but not a lot of people actually then take that and actually register.”

He said it’s easy and encourages people to have conversations with family members and register by visiting Service BC, at 455 Columbia St., Kamloops, or by filling out the form that comes with a driver’s licence. “There are so many people waiting for an organ and a second chance at life,” Lepp said.

n In honour of marking 150 years since Whitfield Chase settled in Chase, historian and Chase Coun. David Lepsoe takes a group on a 45-minute guided historic tour around downtown speaking about 21 of 50 existing original buildings and their history from 1908 to 1925.

New highway interchange at Pritchard On Wednesday morning, drivers will begin using the new Pritchard interchange on Highway 1, about 40 kilometres east of Kamloops. The interchange is intended to provide

safer access along the Trans-Canada Highway, particularly for residents and visitors to Pritchard. Motorists are reminded to obey trafficcontrol workers and construction speed

limits and to watch for workers and highway message boards, as work continues on the second phase of the Monte Creek to Prichard project, which is expected to be completed later this year.

Traffic advisories and web cam views continue to be available online at drivebc.ca. Project information is available online at: http://www.th.gov. bc.ca/highwayprojects/ bchwy1/index.html.

The Independents

Independent shops contribute to the fabric of a community and what makes it special and unique. Tourists and other visitors will be much more inclined to remember a local shop rather than a big chain in a particular neighborhood. When travelers want to get a feel for a community, they seek out small, local stores that are much more likely to stock a high percentage of locally-sourced goods

KEYSTROKE

Improving the TransCanada Highway between Kamloops and the Alberta border to make it safer and more efficient for all travellers is critical to attract new investment and support economic growth in British Columbia. Through B.C. on the Move, the provincial government will continue to four-lane and implement safety improvements on the Trans-Canada, and work with the federal government to leverage available funding to build on our partnership successes to date.

Sicamous Business Directory

The province’s new 10-year transportation plan, B.C. on the Move, prioritizes investments in our transportation network, and highlights our commitment to continued improvements to Highway 1 between Kamloops and the Alberta border. The Trans-Canada Highway is B.C.’s primary southern eastwest corridor. The section between Kamloops and the Alberta border is more than 400 kilometres long, and winds through some of the most challenging terrain in Canada. It is an essential corridor for trade and travel, used by as many as 12,000 vehicles each day, and accounting for the movement of $2 billion in trade per year.

Other Highway 1 improvement projects prioritized through B.C. on the Move include Hoffman’s Bluff to Jade Mountain, Donald East, Illecillewaet and Salmon Arm West. Planning and design work is underway on each of these projects. Through B.C. on the Move, we are making other investments in the safety and reliability of Highway 1. As part of our $25-million-peryear Roadside Safety program, we’ll be piloting a variable speed zone between Malakwa and Revelstoke, and investing in guardrails in key locations. Because Highway 1 traverses some of the province’s most challenging avalanche terrain, we are also committing to pursue new technologies and other improvements to reduce the number and duration of highway closures during periods of high avalanche hazard. The ministry will also work toward this goal with local government and incident responders, including the police and coroners.

Greg Kyllo

10-year transportation plan, B.C. on the Move, and building on the provincial commitment to invest $650 million over the next 10 years toward four-laning Highway 1 from Kamloops to the Alberta border, the province will work with Canada to leverage federal funding for priority projects. It is our government’s goal to increase investment on this corridor to more than $1 billion with partners over the next 10 years. With federal and provincial contributions to date, 22 of the 26 kilometres through the Kicking Horse Canyon, east of Golden, have been widened to four lanes, dramatically improving safety and capacity of this section of the Trans-Canada. To complete the remaining four kilometres, an investment up to $650 million is needed. The province continues to pursue a federal partnership through the National Infrastructure Component of the Building Canada Fund to enable completion of this project.

MLA REPORT

Since 2001, the provincial and federal governments have invested approximately $700 million in improvements between Kamloops and the Alberta border. As part of this investment, the province has widened 45 kilometres of Highway 1 to four lanes and has replaced or installed 11 new structures as part of this work. Work is currently underway to widen more sections of Highway 1 to improve safety and capacity. Construction is in full swing on two major Highway 1 improvement projects between Monte Creek and Hoffman’s Bluff east of Kamloops. Another phase of this work will start this spring, to widen another three kilometres of Highway 1 from two to four lanes through Hoffman’s Bluff itself. In addition, work is underway east of Sicamous to replace the Malakwa Bridge and widen three kilometres of highway to four lanes. As detailed in our recently launched

It’s the same story every year: on Father’s Day, what on earth do you give to a man who already has everything he needs? The key to the perfect gift is to buy something that your father would like to have, but probably wouldn’t buy for himself; it has to be something that would be a real treat for him. Here are a few tips. THE HANDYMAN DAD If your father loves working with his hands, ask questions about his most recent projects and pay attention to what he says. He may mention a tool

or gadget that would have been useful, but that he doesn’t have. This could be the perfect opportunity! THE TECHIE DAD Technology fans usually have very definite preferences when it comes to their devices and tend to buy for themselves the most current models. In other words, it’s risky to give the latest gadget as a gift. Instead, think about something unusual, along the lines of a Bluetooth speaker for the shower that he can connect to his smart phone! THE EPICUREAN DAD Does your father enjoy a delicious meal and a good bottle of wine? Of course, treating him to a bottle of his favourite drink or a restaurant meal is always a safe bet, but maybe you should try to be more original this year by focusing on useful and fun accessories. For example, instead of giving him his usual short-lived bottle of whiskey, you could opt for a beautiful set of whiskey stones to cool his favourite libation. You know your father best, whether he’s sporty, fashion conscious or an avid reader. Whatever his interests are, the important thing is to give him a gift that shows you’ve thought about him; after all, that’s what really counts.

Day is a celebration of the most important man in your life and all he gave to his family over the years. It may be that for you, highlighting Father’s Day is a way to acknowledge the important role your dad has played in your life since the day you were born. He was your coach, your marriage counsellor (sometimes unsolicited, but still), your Prince Charming or your superhero, and he worked all his life (along with Mom) to offer the very best to his family. He celebrated your successes with you and always listened to your problems, often relegating his own

to the background. Of course, you definitely appreciate all this, but how many times have you actually said so? Make the most of this special June Sunday to say a simple “thank you” to your Dad for all he has given you. Gifts are a rather ephemeral way of expressing your affection, but a few sincere words will remain forever etched in his memory. Whether your father is on the other side of the planet or in the same house as you, take a moment to remind him that without him, you wouldn’t be where you are today. After all, isn’t that the real purpose of Father’s Day?
