The nose knows

n An RCMP bombsniffing dog checks out a briefcase left near natural gas lines in an alley behind the Royal Bank in Chase on Friday morning. On the advice of the RCMP’s Vancouver-based Explosives Unit, the area was cordoned off for a few hours until the dog could be brought in from Kelowna to see if there were explosives present. At approximately 2 p.m., the K-9 unit arrived. Once the dog gave no indication of explosives, the case was opened to find some personal effects inside.

Mayor, firefighters go to mediation Chase: Department initiates WorkSafe BC complaint over bullying, harassment. By Barb Brouwer


There’s a fire going on in the Village of Chase, but it’s a blaze of complaints and accusations, rather than actual flames. Joni Heinrich, chief administrative officer for the Village of Chase is hoping mediation will improve relations between the village and the Chase Fire Department. Several members of the fire department initiated a complaint with WorkSafeBC, accusing Mayor Rick Berrigan of bullying and harassment.

WorkSafeBC responded by sending an inspector to the village office on May 25. “As detailed in the inspection report, a prevention officer visited the Village of Chase to determine if the employer had the required policy statement in place to deal with incidents and complaints of bullying and harassment, and to ensure that workers and supervisors are trained to understand and follow established procedures,” confirmed WorkSafeBC in a June 22 email. “The WorkSafeBC officer found the employer to be in compliance.”

In a June 19 press release, the village maintains that while complaints were first made public by the fire department, they were not initially conveyed to council. As well, the village’s press release advises that no investigation by WorkSafeBC has taken place and that once the issues were made public, the village got agreement from members of the fire department to take the matter to internal mediation and engaged the services of a mediator. Fire chief Brian Lauzon confirmed a meeting with Heinrich regarding

mediation was arranged for late this week. He said he has been asked not to comment on the issues between the department and the village. “Hopefully we get a positive result and solve our issues, and they can do their stuff and we can do our stuff,” he said, “It’s about interference and other underlying issues.” Volunteer firefighter Cavelle Layes, says the fire department’s main complaint is an ongoing issue with the mayor, who was once the See Meeting on page A2

Coroner investigates rail fatality By Lachlan Labere


Few details have been released relating to the death of a pedestrian in a train accident that occurred Friday on CP Rail tracks a east of Malakwa.

CP confirm the death occurred at approximately 11 a.m. on June 19. Spokesperson Salem Woodrow said a westbound freight train “made contact with an individual near the community of Mal-

akwa… which unfortunately resulted in a fatality.” Sicamous RCMP and CP Police are assisting in the investigation, which is now in the hands of the B.C. Coroners Service.

No one else is reported to have been injured in the incident, and authorities are not considering the matter suspicious. The name of the deceased was not being released until police notify family.

Meeting held with staff, not with mayor Continued from front Chase fire chief. “We feel he is taking a personal grudge and using his position as mayor to take out the grudge,” she said Monday, noting the number of volunteer firefighters has gone from six last year to 19 – something the fire chief attributes to hard work by members going into the community and advertising to get the word out.

“We’re trying to do something really good for the community and we want to do more than provide fire protection. We want to be out there to support the community that has been supporting us, but we’re hitting walls.” Layes says Chase firefighters cover the second largest road rescue area in the province but only two people are trained to cover the two shifts. “We’d prefer to have four.”

Layes says that while they have been able to meet with Village of Chase staff, requests for meetings with the mayor have been denied. “We have tried to send information to the council through Joni and we have tried to keep it away from the public,” Layes says. “We wanted to address it with Rick, but it’s not going anywhere.” Heinrich, meanwhile says one of the issues is budget cuts to the department, but notes

every department had its budget reduced. Another issue addressed in the village’s press release is a denial of training funds. “Council has never flatly denied additional training funds for the fire department,” reads the release. It notes the fire department can “make a case” to council. “And with reasonable rationale, the request will be considered on the basis of its merits.”

Boat ban plan makes waves By Richard Rolke BLACK PRESS

The Regional District of North Okanagan is navigating turbulent waters over a proposed boat ban on parts of the Shuswap River. A range of opinions flooded in during public open houses in Enderby and rural Lumby. “We’re hearing a lot of different views,” said Anna Page, sustainability co-ordinator. The proposed regulations for the river include no motorized vessels from south Mabel Lake upstream to Shuswap Falls and from Trinity Valley Road upstream to the eastern end of Skookumchuck Rapids Park. It’s also suggested

that there be a vessel engine size limit of 10 horsepower from Mara Lake upstream to Trinity Valley Road. “A lot are not in agreement and some are not comfortable with it but they recognize something must be done. Those in support were also there,” said Page. “It’s a good starting point and it shows us there’s a lot of interest and people want to be involved.” RDNO’s intent is to improve recreational safety, reduce bank erosion, reduce disturbance to salmon spawning grounds and minimize conflicts between river users. About 242 people attended the meeting at the Enderby Drill Hall and there were about 50 at the Mabel Lake

Community Hall. “People had time to give their input and the (public) process will go on until the end of August,” said Herman Halvorson, rural Enderby director. Surveys can also be completed online at and they will be mailed to property owners adjoining the river in the affected areas. “The whole goal is to get a feeling for what the community wants,”

said Rick Fairbairn, rural Lumby director. Halvorson insists that a final decision on the regulations has not been made. “We will take a look at it and then see where it goes,” he said of maintaining the proposal as is, amending the plan or scrapping the concept altogether. If RDNO proceeds with some form of regulations, the final decision will be made by Transport Canada.

Parkland parameters New rules for the dedication of parkland to the Columbia Shuswap Regional District will ensure any land given will actually be suitable for park use. When subdivisions happen there is a requirement for developers to either pay a cash contribution towards community parks or offer land in exchange. In the past, this has resulted in some awkward situations with barely usable land being offered to fulfill the requirement. Now, the rules will be more stringent regarding the slope and grade of the dedicated land. “This is important because years ago in Ranchero a developer gave a chunk of property and it was actually in a ravine and couldn’t even be accessed. Now we have this piece of property that’s worth nothing, we couldn’t even give it away.” South Shuswap director Paul Demenok echoed the comment, saying it is important that parkland for the CSRD actually be able to be used to benefit the community residents. “It’s a very positive move that protects the citizen’s interest.”


Ride Don’t Hide

Participants of the Ride Don’t Hide event rest after completing the 10-kilometre ride on Sunday, June 21. More than $11,000 was raised in the Shuswap and Revelstoke area, and all the funds raised stay in the community to benefit the Canadian Mental Health Association.

Transit wants vs. costs The City of Enderby’s hope to increase transit to Salmon Arm had Columbia Shuswap Regional District directors liking the idea but wondering who would be putting up the cash to keep the busses running. The enhanced service would also apply to the Deep Creek area; however, the area director, Rene Talbot said he did not think BC Transit would fund it. “At the end of the day, I think they will say there is not enough ridership to support it.” Chad Eliason, who represents the City of Salmon Arm, says additional transit services are desirable for many areas, but “I don’t think they like the price tag that comes along with it.” The City of Salmon Arm will likely investigate the costs and report back.

Green Party to vote on candidate By Richard Rolke BLACK PRESS

Okanagan-Shuswap Greens have reignited plans for the upcoming federal election after a setback. Vernon’s Keli Westgate and Notch Hill’s Chris George will seek the party’s nomination July 23. The position came open after candidate Dave Smith resigned May 24 over what he described as irreconcilable differences with

members of the local party. Westgate works in multi-media, permaculture and composting and she is a director with O’Keefe Ranch and the Sustainable Environment Network Society. “I am passionate about sustainable development, local small business, affordable housing, and creating ‘green’ jobs for young people in the North Okanagan-Shuswap,” she said.

George is a full-time university student with 25 years experience in small business. He ran for the provincial Greens in 2013. “I am very concerned about this government’s willingness to give away our resources and our children’s futures via a series of ill-considered trade deals,” he said. Anyone wanting to vote at the meeting must be a member of the Green Party for 30 days prior to the event.

Trudeau message heard before

An email arrived in the Saanich News editor’s inbox on Tuesday morning from none other than Liberal leader Justin Trudeau. It read as follows: “hey. really quick... big announcement coming. on in 2 mins. it’s time for real change. gotta go. J.” The email, crafted to look like a buddy’s drunk text on a Saturday night, was sent to thousands of people across the country to bolster some lastminute webcast viewing of Trudeau’s campaignstyle speech in Ottawa. The highlight of that speech, other than watching 200 Liberal MPhopefuls fatigue their smiling muscles behind Trudeau’s podium, included a promise to reform Canada’s electoral system within 18 months of taking power. A bold plan, indeed ... except for the fact that the federal NDP have been advocating for proportional representation since 2004, and the Greens have had it on their books since the mid-1990s. The latest polling numbers (still four months out from the election) show that if the election was held today, the NDP could garner 29.1 per cent of the vote, while the Conservatives would hold onto a minority government with 30 per cent of the vote. The same poll suggests the Liberals would again be in third place with 94 seats in the House of Commons. Trudeau has a long road to climb to achieve Mulcair’s momentum, and the calculated release of the Liberals’ major announcements may yet be enough to turn the tide. But one mistake Trudeau needs to avoid is assuming that the Liberals belong in government or official opposition. Times have changed since Chrétien and his cronies stretched their dynasty from coast to coast to coast. –Saanich News

Kids fishing derby in good hands It felt strange not being there last Sunday morning, at the end of Marine Park wharf, for the 19th Annual Salmon Arm Kid’s Fishing Derby. I usually start working on the derby a few days afterwards. Things have a way of falling into place – especially after 18 years. But there is always that sense of excitement and anticipation as the day of the derby gets closer. Come Sunday morning I was up early. I kept looking at my watch. I knew a lot of eager, young anglers would be putting their lines in the water hoping to feel a nibble. I waited a whole 10 minutes before I phoned to see how things were going and who had caught the first fish. “It’s only ten after six here,” said Aly Vann over her cell phone. “We’re still getting set up and registering the kids. Don’t worry, everything thing is going fine.” I’d forgotten there is an hour’s difference in time between Fort Steele (where I am currently the storytell-

The GreaT OuTdOOrs James Murray er in residence) and Salmon Arm. I had to wait all over again to find out about the first fish. I knew, however, that things were in good hands. Vann, a perennial winner of the derby in her day and Aaron Alcott, who has been bringing his kids to the derby for years, had stepped in to help Donna Flatman (from Salmon Arm Recreation Services) with the derby in my absence. It took a little while after the start, but Logan Herrington finally caught and landed the first fish of the day. During the awards ceremony following the derby, Herrington was presented with the Westside Stores

Trophy, a rod and reel outfit and a $50 Westside Stores gift certificate. Linden Walters landed a 1,550 gram whopper to secure first place in the Largest Fish category. Walters received the Salmon Arm Savings and Credit Union/W. J. (Bill) Murray Memorial Trophy, an IM-6 graphite fly rod and reel outfit, and will get to take his whole family on an all-expenses paid weekend fishing trip to a lodge which will include accommodations, boat and motor rental, and $100-worth of groceries from Askew’s Foods. Melody Low placed second in the Largest Fish category, while Peyton Blair took third. Throughout the morning there was quite a rivalry between three or four ardent anglers vying for the Most Fish category. In the end, Nicole Andrews caught a total of eight fish to take first place. She walked away with the City of Salmon Arm Trophy, a rod and reel outfit and a one-year pass to the SASCU Recreation swimming

pool. Archie Watson placed a close second with seven fish, while Jayda Koppel was third. David North and Gabriel Dube caught and landed fish closest to predetermined secret hidden weights and each received a brand new shiny mountain bike from Canadian Tire. Three parents won Parent Appreciation draw prizes of $100 worth of groceries from Askew’s Foods – not bad for just for bring their kids to the derby. As with most events in this town, the derby is dependant on a lot of volunteers. I take my hat off to all the volunteers, as well as sponsors, who helped make this year’s derby another success. Donna Flatman and I have worked together for 15 years to put the derby together. She truly is tireless. As for Vann and Alcott, I simply cannot say how proud of them I am. I must say it made me feel pretty good Sunday, knowing the derby was in such good hands.

The first reference to the creek was in the March 1867 Colonist, “Mining on Scotch Creek and Tranquille River will be carried on with vigor this year and with every prospect of the most favourable results. The former has prospected well and 10 claims are recorded.” This first gold rush was short-lived as by 1877, the Geological Survey reported how the creek “has yielded heavy gold, but no mining is now going on there.” The next wave of Europeans to live at Scotch Creek were loggers, as the fir timber on the Scotch Creek flats were ideal for the railway construction. Once the CPR was completed in 1884, many of the workers, both European and

Chinese, remained to re-work the gold fields. The peak year was 1866, when the annual report noted that the creek yielded 80 pounds of gold worth $22,000, but by the following year the yield had already dropped significantly and men were leaving. A few of the Chinese miners kept going, making small wages until 1898. Little is known about the nature of the early Scotch Creek gold rush community, other than there was a saloon where gambling was popular. When settlement began in the early 1900s, Scotch Creek did not develop as other North Shuswap communities did due to a number of factors, including its smaller land base and population. There was no need for a school, as what few children lived there attended school across the lake in Sorrento. When the ferry to Sorrento was installed in 1921, Scotch Creek served as the North Shuswap’s transportation hub until the last ferry was retired in 1956 when the road from Squilax was upgraded. Scotch Creek began to grow significantly when the provincial park opened in 1958, welcoming a sudden influx of campers. To take advantage of the summer visitors, Frank and Akiko Imai built the Park Store across the street. Within a few years, the park could not handle the grow-

ing numbers of tourists and the Imais opened a campground next to the store to accommodate the overflow. The generosity of the Imai family is legendary, as they donated land for a ballpark and donated money to the Celista School. When subdivisions were built in the 1970s, Scotch Creek began to grow as a year-round community. Today, the community is the commercial centre for the entire North Shuswap, with a full-size supermarket, drug store, firehall, clinic, pub, library and post office. There are also building supply stores, cafes, gas stations and other services. Its population of approximately 660 swells during the summer, with both visitors and recreational property owners. Along the entire lakeshore in Scotch Creek is an inviting gravel and sand beach, which is perhaps the community’s most outstanding feature. At one time, the public beach at Scotch Creek Park was packed all summer, especially with day visitors from Kamloops. The campground is one of the most popular in the province and it is often booked solid throughout the summer. Where the ferry once docked, is now a very popular CSRD marine park. Near the centre of the community is one of the key marinas on the lake that utilizes a manmade lagoon. Boating

has long been a part of Scotch Creek, as it has some of the best access to the lake, especially the well-used boat launch in the provincial park. And no wonder, as Scotch Creek is the closest community to the Shuswap’s only large island, Copper Island, the destination for so many boaters. A sure sign of an active, involved community are the baseball teams that play regularly in the spring and Scotch Creek is known for its baseball. Both the Rose Clifford Park and the adjacent Imai Ballpark are well used by the five teams on the North Shuswap. Another recreational opportunity is the nearby hiking trail that features a magnificent view of the lake and valley. And during the summer, live music fills the air at the Friday Night Live events that also feature crafts and food. At the headwaters of Scotch Creek, also known by its Secwepemc name as Kwikoit Creek, is one of the Shuswap’s least known provincial parks, Pukeashun. In addition to the mountain, now well-used by sledders, are wildlife rich wetlands and Grizzly Lake, once prized by the Secwepemc for its trout. The importance of Scotch Creek to the Secwepemc is apparent as adjacent to the community is a Little Shuswap Indian Band Reserve, which fortunately remains in a mostly wild state.

Sun protection for your eyes Most people understand that when outdoors, sunscreen is needed to protect our skin from the harmful effects of sun exposure. It is also important to be aware of the risk of sun and UV exposure to our eyes. Many of the suns harmful effects on the eye are not apparent immediately. UV exposure increases the risk of developing skin cancer around the eye, cataracts and macular degeneration. Thankfully, there are many options available to help protect our eyes from sunlight and UV radiation. It is estimated that as much as 80% of our lifetime exposure to UV occurs before age 18 (according to the World Health Organization). Additionally, in children, the crystalline lens is not as efficient at filtering out UV radiation as is the lens in an adult eye. This increases the risk, later in life, of developing cataracts and macular degeneration. It is recommended that children are protected outdoors with sunglasses that provide 100% UV protection and a widebrimmed hat. Prescription eyeglasses can be tinted, have a UV coating

filter, or darken outdoors (transition lenses) to protect against UV damage. However, even with sunglasses on, staring directly at the sun or an eclipse can

permanently damage our eyes and vision. Bright sunlight also creates glare which increases eyestrain, fatigue and can be quite debilitating. Wearing tinted sunglass lenses or transition lenses that darken outdoors can improve our comfort and visual performance in bright sunlight. Polarized lenses, which filter out any re-

flected glare, are another option that is especially popular when doing water sports, driving on wet roads or playing in the snow.

More recently, blue light (in the visible spectrum) has drawn attention as being especially damaging to our eyes. Blue light is a high energy wavelength, is present in sunlight and is radiated from LED and fluorescent light bulbs, as well as digital screens (smartphones, tablets and televisions). Symptoms of computer vision syn-

drome, which can include fatigue and eyestrain, are aggravated by blue light exposure. Blue light also impacts our natural circadian rhythm and can interfere with our sleep. As a result, it is recommended to stay away from screens for 2 hours prior to going to sleep. To decrease the harmful effects of blue light exposure, tinted lenses are available that filter out 100% of blue light or, more commonly, coatings on clear eyeglass lenses are used that filter out most blue light. Overall, sunlight and UV exposure can harm our eyes and we need to realize the necessity of eye protection. Tinted lenses, sunglasses (including polarized), transition lenses and UV coatings are all available to filter out the harmful effects of UV exposure. It is especially important to protect children’s eyes, as they are at the greatest risk. Our eyes should be protected to preserve our vision for our lifetime.

A message to graduates MAYOR’S MESSAGE Nancy Cooper I cannot be with you this year so here is my message to you. Congratulations. Graduation is both a completion and a beginning. Today you are completing twelve years of public school.

This is an important accomplishment so celebrate, enjoy this day, make memories that you will look back on and smile. Tomorrow your new day begins and you move onward. What will the next 12, 20, 50 years be? Well, that is up to you. You can be whatever you choose to be. You can choose your profession, you can choose how to spend your time, you will choose who you marry and even if you will marry. Yes, you can and will choose. Make sure you choose wisely. Make sure it is

your choice because in the end, right or wrong, you will live with it. Often we seek the opinion and advice of our parents, friends and others we respect. Seeking opinions and advice is good but, in the end, you still choose. You have an inner voice, intuition, or whatever you call it, and only you know what is right for you. Steve Jobs said, “Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your

heart and intuition.” I can say from experience that time goes quickly. Spend your time on the things you care about, with those you love because the next 12, 20, 50 years will pass in the blink of an eye. So always do your best, listen to your inner voice, have courage to follow your heart, love without expectation and choose wisely. However, if you make a mistake – and you will, we all do – that’s called experience. Choose to pick yourself up, lesson learned, onward. A11

Making super salads

HEALTHY BITES Serena Caner Potluck foods have changed dramatically in the past few years. Where once there may have been a token veggie and dip platter, today, salads seem to dominate the show. No longer are we choosing between garden or Caesar salad, but spinach, quinoa, greek, southwestern and cobb. Even places like Wendy’s and McDonald’s have an assortment of salads. So if you want to bring a showstopper to your next event, keep the following tips in mind: Fresh is best. Salad greens that have wilted or started to spoil do not taste good. My experience with prewashed salad bags is they have often started to spoil. Make sure you check the expiry date. In summer, fresh lettuce can be bought at your farmers market or grown in your garden. To store your own “ready-to-use” lettuce, wash and dry well in a salad spinner. Then wrap in a paper towel and store in a ziplock bag or air-tight container in your fridge. Use different colours. Having a range

of colours in your salad will increase the variety of vitamins and minerals in your salad as well as its visual appeal. Add grated beets or carrots, shredded purple cabbage, sliced peppers, radishes, cucumbers or tomatoes. Fruits can also offer colour and sweetness: berries, slices of pear or apple. Offer contrasting textures. These salads are more interesting to eat. One of my favourite additions to almost any salad is toasted nuts or seeds. Toasting nuts increase their complexity of flavour and crunch. Avocados can add something creamy; dried fruit something chewy. Add fresh herbs. In summertime, fresh herbs are readily available and can add a lot of flavour to your salad without extra fat, sugar or calories. Chopped herbs such as dill, chives, basil, mint, parsley and cilantro are all delicious on salads. They also add visual appeal as a garnish. Salad dressing can make or break your salad. My favourite dressing is a mixture of equal parts of balsamic vinegar and olive oil, with a little Dijon mustard and maple syrup added. Macedonian Feta. Creamier and less salty than your regular feta, you will never go back. Available at any Mediterannean food store in a larger centre.

Dinoflex Annual Donation to Shane Gorner Memorial Fund On behalf of all the employees at Dinoflex it gives me great pleasure to present our annual financial gift to the Shane Gorner Memorial Endowment Fund in memory of our friend and co-worker Shane. The Shane Gorner Memorial Endowment Fund was set up by the Gorner family. It is used to assist individuals whose primary continuing education will be focused in the arts and who, under normal circumstances, would find it financially challenging to pursue further education. This year it is even more special now that the fund has grown to the point the Gorner family is able to direct monites from the fund to benefit local students at Salmon Arm Secondary. If you would like to make a charitable donation to Shane’s fund, please stop by the Shuswap Community Foundation office at 450 Lakeshore Dr. NE Salmon Arm or send a cheque to Box 624, Salmon Arm BC V1E 4N7. Please make the cheques payable to Shuswap Community Foundation and note “for Shane Gorner Memorial Fund.” - Mike Bunz, CEO of Dinoflex Group LP ▼

Donkey refuge seeking support rently raising funds to help feed the more than 90 donkeys in their care who will require thousands of bales of hay over the winter, bales which cost about $6.50 each. The fundraising goal is $35,000. If you would like to help or simply would like more information about the donkey refuge, go to http://www.

By Martha Wickett


Why a donkey refuge? The Turtle Valley Donkey Refuge tells this story about George. “When George arrived at the donkey refuge in 2012, it was immediately clear that he would require very special handling as a result of the severe abuse that he endured in the first six years of his life. “George was rescued in the Lower Mainland from an owner who confined him along with other farm animals in a windowless shed. He had experienced the abuse of starvation – his previous owner’s way of culling his unwanted animals. It was very obvious that George was badly damaged from this life. “George continues to be affected by his previous confinement. He lacks the typical social skills needed to be part of the donkey herd. The refuge veterinarian has diagnosed George with a lack of understanding

on how to behave as a donkey. This is complicated yet again with the unsuccessful gelding (neutering) operation he received prior to his arrival at the refuge. George behaves as if he is still an equine stud which can endanger himself and other herd members. “Until 2015, George was unable to know the enjoyment of liv-

ing with a herd of his own. Then in early May, George, who had been living next to our mule Dan Patch and his donkey friend Whitey, lifted the gate between them and joined their herd. This is a huge step forward for George and truly underlines the deep changes having a safe and permanent home at the refuge can do for

even the most psychologically damaged and abused donkey. Together, we can make a difference in donkey’s lives. “The Turtle Valley Donkey Refuge is committed to rescuing abused, neglected and unwanted donkeys and providing a safe and healthy permanent home for them.” The refuge is cur-

Heat receives $15,000 grant The society that oversees Chase’s junior hockey team has received a $15,000 community gaming grant from the B.C. government. The Chase Heat is a member of the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League and is owned by the Heat Junior Hockey Society. The grant will help cover expenses such as equipment costs and ice time at Art Holding Memorial Arena. “Community-owned

sports teams have a difficult time raising enough money to survive year after year,” Kamloops-South Thompson MLA Todd Stone said. “The Heat junior hockey club is an important part of the community of Chase and our government is proud to support it.” “On behalf of the Heat Junior Hockey Society and the Chase Heat junior hockey team, I wish to thank the provincial government for this grant,”

Heat president Scott Koch said. “We are a small-market team that struggles to find adequate funds to operate on an annual basis. This grant assists us significantly with expenses, and also supports the entire community of Chase.” Organizations interested in applying for Community Gaming Grants can find information and applications at Meanwhile, the

The 20-year-old Richmond, B.C. native was named the KIJHL’s Most Sportsmanlike player for the 2014/15 season. “Oak is that guy – someone who comes along and can change the entire character of a hockey club,” says Heat operations director Brad Fox. “When called upon, he can play offensively on the top line as a forward, which provides a whole other dimension to the team.”

Our government has also reduced the administrative burden on charities; the Government eliminated a number of disbursement quota requirements, allowing charities to focus more of their time and resources on the good work they do. These improvements to Canada’s tax regulations will benefit Canadian charities by allowing them to draw on broader supports and expand the good work that they do. - Colin Mayes is the member of Parliament for Okanagan-Shuswap.

This will be a costeffective way of unlocking more private wealth for the public good. It is estimated that this tax saving will cost federal revenues around $265 million between 2016 and 2020. Our government also has in past budgets introduced a First Time Donor’s Super Credit which is available on cash donations of up to $1000 made before 2018, to encourage young Canadians and first-time donors to support charitable organizations.

HAM, ELSIE May 11, 1930 - June 16, 2015 Elsie passed away on June 16, 2015 at Hillside Village, Salmon Arm, at the age of 85 years. She is survived by her husband of 50 years, Wayne, seven children, ten grandchildren and eight great grandchildren, two brothers and one sister. A funeral service will be held on Saturday, June 27, 2015 at 1:00 at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church, 1981 9th Ave. NE, Salmon Arm with Pastor Benje Bartley officiating. Interment to follow at Mt. Ida Cemetery. Arrangements entrusted to Fischer’s Funeral Services & Crematorium Ltd., Salmon Arm (250) 833-1129. Email condolences and share your memories of Elsie through her obituary at www. JONES (SYMINGTON), KATHARINE ANN Mom (known to most of you as Kay) died June 16, 2015 at an extended care home, The Good Samaritan Hillside Village in Salmon Arm. She had a variety of ailments which first put her in extended care 13 years ago (fibromyalgia, severe arthritis, heart disease), but her strong Scottish will kept her going, as she recently sang on her 80th birthday 3 weeks ago. She was born on June 2nd 1935 in Edinburgh Scotland and was the eldest daughter of the Rev John Symington and Jessie (Gyp) Symington, of Dumfries, Scotland. She graduated from Hutcheson’s Girls Grammar School in Glasgow and trained as a nurse and midwife at the Deaconess Hospital in Edinburgh. Mom had the travel bug, going to exotic locations in Europe, then ultimately to the United States and Canada, where she worked as a nurse. Somehow she ended up in Lillooet BC, meeting a handsome, dancing rancher (Dad). The next thing you know she was married, pregnant , and raising 3 sons on the Jones Ranch at Texas Creek Road in Lillooet. She worked full time as a nurse in Lillooet, delivered many a baby, was the one who took care of all the injured sons/cousins at the farm, cleaned the house, cooked most of the meals, was the primary breadwinner, dealt with farm family dynamics and supported dad in politics/school board/golf course. You can see why she enjoyed her glass of wine and cigarettes. Mom loved music and dance and was a fan of Broadway musicals such as My Fair Lady and Carousel; she was often singing while in care, knowing most of the church songs by heart. I’ll always remember her thick Scottish accent, telling us boys to get ‘ooot’, along with her desire that we don’t choose farming as a profession ( 1 out of 3 ain’t bad.. ) She was a good Mom, who we could always count on to be there, probably under appreciated, and not deserving of all her medical challenges, but sometimes life is like that. She is survived by her younger brother David who lives in Gray Creek BC and by her three sons, Andrew, Michael and Ian and by many grandchildren, all of whom live in BC. A memorial service will be held on Saturday June 27th, at First United Church, 450 Okanagan Avenue SE Salmon Arm BC at 1PM. In lieu of flowers donations to the Chronic Pain Association of Canada ( involved/donate ) would be most appreciated.

A celebration of Margaret’s life will be held at the family cabin on Little Shuswap Lake at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday October 11, 2015.

MURIEL CAROL HOWARD Our hearts weep as we announce the passing of our precious sweet mother, Muriel Carol (Jones), (Henry) Howard, fondly known as Carol. Born November 15, 1935 in St. John New Brunswick, she was in her eightieth year when our journey with the cancer ended. She left us early in morning on June 10, peacefully and gently, (much as the way she lived her life) with family at her side at her home in Salmon Arm. She leaves behind her faithful and beloved companion of 13 years, Mimi, her ever protective, little dog. Loving and missing her greatly are her children: Carol Ann Henry, (Glynne) Green; Wanda Henry; Robert (Tina) Henry and Sandy Henry, Milne. The loss and memories of ‘Nana’ will be shared by grandchildren Colyn and Byron Green, Chris, Micheal and Sarah Henry and Andy Milne…she was devoted to them. Great grandchildren Aaden and Silas Henry were fortunate to have had some time to experience her love. In her later adult years mom connected with both a maternal half-brother Rick (Helen) Burke of Melbourne Australia and a paternal half-brother Jim (Gloria) Carter. These relationships blossomed and provided comfort to mom through her end of life journey. Having spent ½ of her life on the east coast, Mom leaves behind dear and close friends on both sides of the country. Some of whom she remained in close contact with until her final days. Mom cherished her friends and they cherished her. The appreciation we have for the home care aids from Shuswap Community Care is immeasurablewe couldn’t have done it without you! Mom’s ‘regulars’ became like an extended family network, trusted and valued for what they individually brought to mom’s care, we were so privileged to have you. Your stories, laughter, gentle care and nurturing contributed greatly to Mom’s contentment and quality of life, a heartfelt Thank You to each of you, you went above and beyond! Thank you to Hospice volunteers, Barb, Penny and Katherine. The stories, foot and leg rubs, and quiet companionship meant a great deal to mom and she welcomed your visits. Thank you to her nurse Lorraine Prosser and Dr. Grant McCallum. Not only were mom’s pets special to her, family pets, friends pets, neighbourhood pets all held an endearing place in her heart. Mom’s charity was SPCA, should you wish to make a donation in her memory. Please join us for a memorial and celebration of mom’s life that will be held at 11:30 a.m. on Saturday July 4th at Fischer’s Funeral Services in Salmon Arm. There will be an opportunity to share memories and stories over a light lunch. Email condolences and share memories of Carol through her obituary at www.fischersfuneralservices. com.

Gudrun Weisinger

From the Observer Gang


Births Welcome


It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Gudrun Weisinger, beloved wife, mother, grandmother, and sister, on June 22, 2015, at the age of 73. Gudrun Weisinger, nee Behmel, was born October 8th, 1941, in Dettingen (Hohenzollern), Germany as one of four siblings, two boys and two girls. In 1966 she moved to Canada, intending to stay one year, but there she met the love of her life, her soulmate Alfred. Together they built a life and had two sons, Peter and Franz. Gudrun also began her career as one of the most accomplished weavers in the country. She had trained in Germany at the ‘Meisterschule für das Weberhandwerk’, Master School for the Weaving Trade, in Sindelfingen, and completed a Journeyman certificate, earning the title of Master Weaver in 1964. Over the years she has exhibited many works at art shows and galleries, and has received prestigious awards and prizes in Canada and the United States. Her commissioned work includes a tapestry for the Japanese Sister City of Surrey, BC; a wall hanging for a library in Newton, BC; recreation of several historic home textiles; and restoration of a Jacquard loom. She was a most loved and distinguished member of the Shuswap Spinners and Weavers Guild in Salmon Arm, and was an Honourable Member of the Peace Arch Spinners Guild in Surrey. She taught all levels of weaving and designing and was often a judge at weaving exhibitions. Gudrun was a meticulous artisan. In her words, “finding a perfect harmony of colour, texture, fibre and technique is of paramount importance in my weaving.” In addition to her weaving, Gudrun also loved gardening and being outside. She was always positive, vital, and up for a new experience. Gudrun is survived by her husband Alfred, sons Peter (Michelle) and Franz Weisinger, and grandchildren Maja and Monika; her brother Hermann and family in Germany, and sister Luise and family in Australia. Thank you, Gudrun for a wonderful, fulfilled life. You wove it beautifully. A private memorial gathering will be held for family and friends. In lieu of flowers, donations are welcomed to the Canadian Cancer Society Southern Interior Rotary Lodge, 2251 Abbott St, Kelowna, BC V1Y 1E2; phone 250-712-2203.

Benefits of shopping locally

Buying locally is more convenient. Convenience is paramount to many consumers, and buying locally saves both time and money. Driving to a faraway mall or shopping center or paying costly online shipping fees is not nearly as quick or convenient as shopping within your community, where you can purchase and take home items on the same day without using a full tank of gas or paying for shipping.
