Adams Lake Forestry Road: High-angle rescue team needed to extricate women. By Tracy Hughes

MARKet NeWS StAff

A member of Shuswap Search and Rescue says it is a miracle that two women survived after their vehicle went down an embankment on the Adams Lake Forestry Road on Monday night. Sgt. Gary Heebner of the

Chase RCMP says the driver of a black Dodge Journey was headed southbound at approximately 9:30 p.m. on Aug. 31, when she lost control and went off the left side of the road. The vehicle came to rest on its roof, 30 feet down a steep embankment after striking a tree. John Schutt, with the vol-

unteer organization, told the Market News they were called out to assist with a high-angle rescue of the two women. “It’s a miracle they were OK. It was a tree that stopped them; if it hadn’t, well, below that was a pretty precipitous fall. It wouldn’t have been a good outcome.”

In addition to the police from both Chase and Barriere detachments and Shuswap Search and Rescue (SAR), BC Ambulance, the Chase Fire Department, Jimco Towing and Garrick Towing were also called in to help. “We had to set up a pretty complex rope system with

pulleys to deal with the steep slope,” says Schutt. The SAR members were needed to help bring all the rescue personnel down to the vehicle and back up again, as well as transport the women on stretchers up See Women on page 2

n NDP leader Tom Mulcair is embraced by North Okanagan-Shuswap NDP candidate Jacqui Gingras at Tuesday’s campaign stop in Vernon. Mulcair made a brief stop in Salmon Arm to the NDP campaign headquarters located on Ross Street to meet volunteers, but did not make a public appearance before heading to Kamloops for another rally.

NDP leader rallies region By Richard Rolke BLACK PRESS

Supporters of the NDP spilled out on to Vernon’s main street Tuesday to catch a glimpse of Tom Mulcair. More than 300 people crammed into candidate Jacqui Gingras’ campaign office and took over the 30th Avenue sidewalk outside as the national party leader made a quick whistlestop. “Canadians are ready for a change in Ottawa,” said Mulcair. While North Okanagan-Shuswap has been traditional Conservative turf, Mulcair insists the NDP can sweep to a majority here. “Across B.C., people know one thing and that is the party that defeats the Conservatives is the NDP.” In attendance were Byron Louis, Okanagan Indian Band chief, and Wayne Christian, Splatsin chief. Both insisted they were not endorsing the NDP, but wanted to ensure those seeking public office take First Nations’ concerns seriously. “Canada as a country has to change in terms of titles and rights issues,” said Christian.

Louis says more needs to be heard from all politicians. “A lot of issues haven’t been addressed and especially simple economics,” he said of the need for First Nations people to be employed and support families. “Any party that comes into power needs to support selfsufficiency.” According to Mulcair, an NDP government will consider First Nations’ issues a priority and act immediately on inherent rights. “There’s no subject I’ve held more meetings on than native, Metis and Inuit people.” Mulcair was also asked about murdered and missing aboriginal women across the country and he says he would hold a Royal inquiry to determine causes and solutions. “It is something we’re committed to.” In a related matter, the NDP has announced it would spend $40 million to construct and renovate women’s shelters. “Mr. (Stephen) Harper cut money for women’s shelters and we will put the money back.” On Tuesday, Statistics Canada released figures that show the country’s economy shrunk by

0.1 per cent during the second quarter of 2015 — triggering what is considered a recession. “Stephen Harper’s plan is failing,” said Mulcair, who pointed to NDP plans for a $15-a-day child-care program as a way of getting people into the workforce. He also stated that while the Conservatives have focused on large corporations, his leadership would redirect the attention to another key aspect of the economy. “Small and medium-sized businesses create more than 80 per cent of the new jobs in Canada.” The NDP are also proposing a $15 federal minimum wage. And earlier in the day, Mulcair was in Kelowna where he stated Destination Canada requires a major investment to promote tourism. The environment was also raised during his stop in North Okanagan-Shuswap, and Mulcair slammed the Conservatives for pulling out of the Kyoto Accord on climate change. “We have to start working with the rest of the world and stop working against the planet.”

Drugs, stolen property seized A stolen truck ended up leading the Salmon Arm RCMP to seize $420,000 worth of drugs and recover $300,000 in stolen property on Saturday. On Aug. 29, police received a report of a stolen F-350 with a camper from a residence in White Lake. As the investigation began, police received further information that a truck matching the description was seen travelling on the Trans-Canada Highway towing a black Wells Cargo trailer. The trailer was carrying a Harley Davidson motorcycle, which was later confirmed stolen. The motorcycle came loose and crashed into the ditch, while the stolen truck fled the scene. The truck fled to a rural residence

in Tappen with police following it. Upon searching the property, police located an ATV stolen from Alberta, the F-350 truck and camper stolen from Blind Bay, and a 2011 Kenworth logging truck stolen from 100 Mile House. As well as a marijuana grow operation, police seized a substantial amount of drugs including crack, cocaine, hash, heroin, crystal meth, amphetamine, psilocybin (mushrooms) and prescription drugs, as well as cash and drug trafficking paraphernalia. Three suspects were arrested and were released on strict conditions with a date to appear in Salmon Arm Provincial Court. The men, ages 41, 32 and 30 years old, are all from the Shuswap.

resulted in a decreased risk of wildfires in the region. The fire danger rating is now primarily “low” to “moderate” throughout the fire centre. Last year, the campfire ban was lifted on Aug. 21.

Schools set for students

170 Shuswap Street S.E., Salmon Arm Incumbent: The Rt. Rev. James Cowan

By Richard Rolke BLACK PRESS

Students are getting back to the books. Classes resume Tuesday in the North Okanagan-Shuswap School District. “We are looking forward to a good start-up,” said Glenn Borthistle, superintendent. It’s anticipated that total enrolment will be 5,650, down 100 students from last year. However, final figures won’t be known for about a month and there is the potential the forecast could go up or down. “There is a levelling out or small increase in elementary numbers and a decrease in secondary numbers,” said Borthistle. The number of students impacts the district’s bottom line. “We always try to budget conservatively on our projections and make plans accordingly,” said Borthistle. The district is currently under funding protection from the Ministry of Education and if there is an increase in enrolment and subsequent costs, that could create challenges for the district’s set funding allotment. Trustees and administration met recently and they prepared a strategy leading up to 2016/17 budget dis-

cussions beginning this fall. “When we get to spring, we will have had time to discuss ideas,” said Borthistle. “We will continue discussions around the long-term facilities plan and how to continue supporting rural schools.” Last March, trustees voted to keep Silver Creek Elementary open after considerable concern was raised among residents and parents. The school had been proposed for closure as part of the long-term facilities plan due to low student numbers and the need for the school district to reduce costs. In preparation for the start of this new school year, staff were kept busy with maintenance and capital works projects at many schools. Among them was an upgrade to technology infrastructure. “We are one of the first districts to implement a Next Generation network,” said Borthistle. “It will provide increased bandwidth to all schools. More and more resources are delivered through technology.” The new year also begins with a new secretary-treasure, Nicole Bittante, who was previously in the Saanich area. Bittante takes over from Sterling Olson, who has moved to the Vernon School District.

Policy front and centre in election

Turn on your TV and change it to a news channel, open a paper, or check the Internet. It’s a policy blizzard out there. Just in the past week or so, we’ve seen the major party leaders make promises on senate reform, old age security, northern defence, business taxes, even home renovation tax credits. You could criticize some of these announcements. Many of them are on the small scale side of things. We’ve called for a debate on big issues – things like global warming, but we could as easily have said health care or the role of Canada’s military, post-secondary education, veterans and the future of our economy. So far, we haven’t seen too much discussion of those big issues. But the party leaders have a long road ahead of them, and they have to save some ammunition for September and October, when everyone’s back from summer getaways and can really get down to paying attention to the news again. Right now, we’re actually pleased that, at the very least, there are issues on the table. Not all of these issues are minor, either – when Harper talks about expanding the Junior Canadian Rangers, or Mulcair wants to return Old Age Security to 65 from 67 years, those are both indications of significant priorities for their potential governments. We’re in the middle of a long, long campaign. The leaders could have been excused for stretching things out, going to rallies, and not saying much. Instead, we’ve actually seen a lot of talk about how things would go under Trudeau, Harper and Mulcair. It may be a little piecemeal right now, but it could be worse. We could be talking about Donald Trump. –Penticton Western News

OpiniOn

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

Fly patterns I’ve come to rely on Over the years, I have acquired a fair number of different fly patterns. Some I have come to depend on, while others, well, I guess I just sort of liked the way they looked. Like they say, some patterns catch fish, others catch fishermen. They are all lined up in little rows according to species, colour and size in each of my numerous fly boxes. I couldn’t really say for sure how many flies I have, but a rough ‘guesstimation’ would be well over a thousand. Some, I admit, I have never actually tried. Choosing which pattern to use depends on a number of different factors, such as the type of waters one is fishing – lake or stream, whether the fish are feeding above or below the surface, the season and the species of fish one is after. Living where I do for the past 20 years, I have been, for the most part, a stillwater angler. Not that I don’t go steelheading and salmon fishing whenever I get the chance; I just seem to mostly fish small lakes. I enjoy the peace and quiet that comes with sitting in

The GreaT OuTdOOrs James Murray my boat, casting, waiting and thinking about either what seems important at the time or, sometimes, nothing much at all really. Some of the patterns I have come to reel on when stillwater fishing are the Doc Spratley, which was developed some time back in the 1940s specifically for B.C.’s Interior lakes. It has proven to be one of the most productive patterns ever devised. Caddis patterns I rely on a lot are the Tom Thumb and Tent-wing Caddis, which consistently draw strikes on the surface, as well as Brian Chan’s Caddis Pupae which similarly draws strikes below the surface. When I am fishing a lake

I have never fished before, there are certain patterns that I use such as the Mohair Leech, which can be trolled around a lake to seek out hot spots where fish are either holding or actively feeding. The leech is truly a fly for all seasons. The Marabou Muddler is another one of my search patterns. It can take on a different life according to the type of water in which it is fished. Muddlers are equally effective in stillwater lakes, as well as fastflowing streams and rivers. The Pheasant Tail, ’52 Buick and Gold-ribbed Hare’s Ear are all patterns that seem to work for no other reason than they have just that right amount of ‘bugginess.’ Many B.C. Interior lakes contain gammarus shrimp, and no fly box should be without a good assortment of shrimp patterns. I prefer some sort of pregnant shrimp pattern. I am a catch-and-release angler, but when I do eat one of the fish I catch, my first choice is always a fish that has been feeding on shrimp. The trick with any of these patterns is to simply figure out which

pattern works most effectively on any given day. This past summer, however, I have been fishing rivers and streams exclusively and have had to learn how to cast a whole bunch of new fly patterns – big heavy patterns with rubber legs and weighted bodies. The learning curve has been pretty much straight upward all the way. Patterns like the Kaufmann Stimulator, Royal Wulff and the Tri-wing Sedge are all large caddis patterns that require a subtle presentation on the surface of the water. I think I managed to scare quite a few fish while learning to cast those big boys. Not to mention weighted patterns like the Zug Bug and Prince Nymph, which also presented a challenge. I am sure a number of fish thought a small airplane had crashed into their holding pool. I suppose in time, and with enough opportunity, I will learn to cast these types of flies and, in time, some of them will become the patterns I rely on. Until then, I think the fish in the East Kootenay are pretty safe.

n It was dry just a few days ago, and now Ross Creek is flowing again after recent rains. when his equipment was washed into the lake. After the bridge was washed away again in 1975, residents raised money and hired equipment to raise and straighten the channel, and Highways raised the height of the new bridge. One of the factors behind the excessive run-off events in the watershed was the massive 1967 Mag Fire that burned off most of the forests in the watershed that normally would absorb more of the precipitation. Because the area adjacent to the creek is considered an active fan, development is restricted. Every summer, approximately 200 hundred campers, both children and adults, enjoy the well-loved Camp Grafton, which B.C.S.P.C.A. (Shuswap)

is run by a non-profit society in cooperation with the Kamloops United Church. The camp, situated on 45 acres of forest, includes a beautiful swimming beach on the bay that is accessed by a tunnel under the highway. Programs include canoeing, archery, crafts and games, plus there are hikes and evenings filled with singing, campfires and skits. The facility is also available for retreats and community events. During the summer months with its packed beaches, Magna Bay is the epitome of lakeside living, as the sun shines until late in the day and the water temperature is often higher than elsewhere.

In its early days, Magna Bay was a thriving settlement where the first wave of “back-to-the-land” settlers eked out a living by farming and cutting ties and firewood for the CPR. There was an intense rivalry between Celista and Magna Bay then, which likely was a factor behind the decision to build in 1919 what was then the largest school in the region just across from the Magna Bay government wharf. It became the centre for many cultural activities, including theatre productions, until the Celista Hall was built in 1934. The lack of good roads in the settlement area resulted in the need for each North Shuswap community to be independent and self-sufficient. Cooperation was key as families helped each other build their homesteads. The hub for these settlers was the Magna Bay store, which was

located across from the wharf and near the school. One of the most active organizations was the Women’s Institute, which left an impressive legacy through its purchase of 7.7 acres of wooded lakeshore that is now one of the most popular CSRD marine parks with its sandy beach and shady picnic area. When the North Shuswap schools were amalgamated in 1951, the loss of its school diminished Magna Bay’s status as a standalone community. Today, Magna Bay is a mix of recreational homes, small acreages and a few farms, with a year-round population of just 211. There is a small industrial base with a large gravel pit that provides a range of products for the North Shuswap. Given that the rocky Ross Creek channel, which flows through the Magna Bay community, often dries up in the summer, it is difficult to comprehend how much damage this creek has caused in the past. In 1963, the creek flooded during spring runoff and washed out the bridge. In 1968, after three days of heavy rain, the creek jumped the bank and damaged a new sub-division. During the next flood in 1972, a bulldozer operator drowned

Views mixed on new rec centre Director’s notes Paul Demenok The online survey for Area C residents on Recreational Practices and Preferences is now closed. Thank you very much to all who took the time to provide us with their opinions. The key results are as follows: • Four-hundred-andseventeen households responded, representing 1,046 people living in Area C. With this large sample size, the results are statistically representative of the community’s opinions; • The majority of all respondents were female (61.4 per cent), 60-plus years old (57.7 per cent) and reside in Area C for most of the year (96.9 per cent); • Households included 183 children aged 12 years and under, 47 youth aged 13 to 20 years, 375 adults aged 21 to 60 years and 441 seniors aged 60-plus years old; • Respondents were from Blind Bay (53.3

per cent), Sorrento (15.3 per cent), White Lake (nine per cent), Sunnybrae (eight per cent), Tappen (5.1 per cent), Notch Hill (4.4 per cent), and Eagle/ Wild Rose Bay (3.6 per cent); • 24.7 per cent of respondents are employed full- or parttime, 13.3 per cent are self-employed, and 52.1 per cent are retired; • A broad range of recreational activities are currently enjoyed. Most common mentions (in descending order) were: walking, gardening, golf, swimming/swimming lessons, hiking, fishing, fitness classes, aquatics/aquatic exercise, cycling, baseball/ softball, hockey and curling. Most common cultural activities were: reading, concerts/coffeehouses, movies, cards/board games, painting/drawing, playing a musical instrument and woodworking; • Considerable time is spent on recreational activities with 45.8 per cent at two to five hours, 23.9 per cent at six to 10 hours, and 21.4 per cent at more than 10 hours/week; • Annual expenditures on recreational activities are substan-

tial with 32.2 per cent spending $50 to $200, 21.9 per cent spending $200-$500, and 26.1 per cent per cent spending more than $500; • A majority (58.1 per cent) would like to start participating in a new activity, or participate more frequently in a current activity. Reasons for no or low participation were lack of local availability, cost and desire to avoid winter/night driving. When asked what the household would be willing to spend to enjoy new activities locally, 15.5 per cent answered $0, 11.6 per cent said $1 to $100, 23.9 per cent said $101 to $250, 26.6 per cent said $251 to $500, and 22.4 per cent would spend more than $500; • Establishing a recreation and cultural centre would require a significant process of public consultation and planning. 34.2 per cent were very supportive of entering into this process, 23.6 per cent were moderately supportive, 17.1 per cent were undecided, 6.9 per cent were moderately non-supportive and 18.1 per cent were very non-supportive; • A wide range of comments were received about the idea

of a new recreational and cultural centre. Some felt it would improve quality of life, attract new residents and families, provide children/youth with needed recreational opportunities, and enhance real estate values and economic development. Others felt this area couldn’t afford a rec centre, pointing to higher priorities for expenditures, and were concerned about negative effects on existing community halls. So where does this information leave us? I think results of this survey will form an important part of the information used to develop a new Area C Parks Plan in 2016. This process will involve public consultation and further discussions to ensure that the preferences and aspirations of Area C on this topic are well understood and are addressed in the new plan. Going forward, my

I look forward to collaborating with the residents of Area C to develop a new and improved Parks Plan. -Paul Demenok is the Area C Director for the Columbia Shuswap Regional District.

Sorrento Farmers’ Market

Thank You • Thank You!

On Saturday, August 29th, the Sorrento Village Farmers’ Market experienced the wrath of Mother Nature. For 23 chaotic minutes the vendors and shoppers were subjected to gusting winds that wreaked havoc throughout the Market, lifting tents off the ground and sending vendor goods cartwheeling down the market corridor and parking lot. Thankfully no one was hurt, but many vendors suffered the loss of goods and their tents. The vendors of the Sorrento Village Farmers Market would like to offer our heartfelt thanks to all the shoppers, passers-by, employees and owners of the businesses in the Shoppers Plaza who jumped into action to offer help and support in our urgent time of need. We truly appreciated your efforts. A special thank you goes out to the gal who took tents home for Sue from Notch Hill Organics so she could assist other vendors, and the lovely couple who pulled off the highway when they saw tent legs flying in the air and stopped to offer help. We didn’t get your names, but thank you so much.

Don’t just sit there...

GET ACTIVE!

Take a hike out of the ordinary

For example, the historic Chilkoot Trail – one of North America’s most fabled treks – traverses rocky, very steep, and sometimes challenging terrain. It takes no stretch of the imagination to think of those thousands of gold-hungry prospectors who followed this very route; there is history to be found at every step. Parks Canada also points out that you don’t need to be a hardened adventurer to experience the joy and discovery that awaits you along our country’s vast array of trails. Taking a hike is all about the journey and there are no fewer than 6,500 kilometres of trails where you will be able to connect with nature around every bend and at every look-out point. Do you prefer to hike where few have hiked before? Parks Canada’s trail expert, Mark Schmidt offers some suggestions: “For hiking enthusiasts, Pukaskwa National Park’s Coastal Hiking Trail in Northern Ontario is a hidden gem in our trail system. Or you can head west like the early pioneers and hike into Canada’s premier alpine region along Jasper National Park’s Fryatt Valley Trail. You can even spend the night in a historic alpine hut.” If you’re searching for a different kind of hiking experience, perhaps a culinary reward at the end of your hike is just what you’re looking for. Framed by a quaint European style tea house, the Lake Agnes hike in Banff National Park is the most “civilized” way to see the Rockies. You can sit back, relax and sip tea as you take in the view of Lake Louise from high above. What’s new for 2015? Rent a hand-held Explora, says Schmidt, to explore the original town ruins at the Fortress

of Louisbourg National Historic Site and end your day at the Hôtel de la Marine to swirl a savoury 18th century rum punch and celebrate the return of rum within the fortress’ stone walls. No matter what your hiking appetite, there is a trail waiting for you where you can embark on your very own epic adventure, one step at a time.

Plenty new to do at this year’s Salmon Arm Fair By Tracy Hughes

MARKET NEWS STAff

Just because the Salmon Arm Fair is a fall tradition with more than 100 years in operation doesn’t mean the line-up remains the same. Along with the old favourites, there’s plenty of new fare to entice patrons through the gates. New this year is the pizza-eating contest, sponsored by Dough Boyz. There are two categories: junior, which is ages eight to 12 and senior for those aged 13 and older. Potential participants need to enter their name at Dough Boyz Pizza on Shuswap Street. For the final entrants, five contestants will be randomly drawn for each category. Entries are being accepted until Sept. 7. Contestants will have seven minutes to eat as much cheese pizza as possible. All participants get a free day pass to the fair

and a gift from Dough Boyz. Winners will receive a prize package. The contest will run Sunday, Sept. 13 on the Memory Lane Stage. Juniors will compete at 1 p.m. and the senior class is set for 3 p.m. For horse lovers, the fair is presenting Thundering Impact, which is a drill team with a difference. Instead of thoroughbreds or Arabians, this team features heavy horses – Clydesdales and Percherons, for example. The team is from Maple Ridge and is sure to impress with their routines. The team will perform two shows each day, often ahead of the popular mini chuckwagon racers. Also new to the fair is the Amazing School Day Race, which will see groups of students from 16 different elementary schools participating in fun stations including cow milking, butter making, gold panning, creating balloon animals, beekeep-

ing and racing zucchinis. As a side note, the fair is in search of extra zucchinis for the races, so if you have some to donate, contact the fair office at 250-832-0442. Dogs are also back on deck for the fair, with obedience demonstrations and duckherding demonstrations. The kids’ area will feature some new events, entertainment and displays with gold panning, magician Clinton Grey and the Farmer for a Day program, which will feature interactive displays for kids to learn about agriculture. Zucchini races will also take place on Saturday and Sunday. As well, there will be a special kids’ cupcake decorating event on both Saturday and Sunday and a cake decorating event in the Artisan Building on Saturday. The ever-popular Shuswap Idol competition will continue and this year’s finalists have

Trees with spiritual significance

Gaia GardeninG Margo Westaway

One of the most pleasant ways to find relief from the hot sun is to park yourself under the cool and protective umbrella of a shade tree – especially after a cooker like we’ve had this summer! These wonderful and amazing lifeforms have always played a vital role in supporting life on earth, but they’ve also played a major cultural, spiritual and symbolic role throughout our human history too, with plenty of folklore, legends and myths surrounding them. The original meaning of the word ‘spirit’ was often described as a breath or wind, because a person felt touched or moved by something that couldn’t be seen. But this intangible phenomenon was difficult to describe vocally, so symbols were used instead. This sense or feeling was common with religion and other forms of spirituality; but it’s also

felt through creative processes, love or being in contact with natural environments. Trees and forests have always been important symbols in mythology and religions in many cultures, which didn’t threaten God’s position as the highest being because he was considered the source and trees the channels. They have been used to symbolize fundamental values and beliefs relating to life, growth, health, fertility, regeneration, wisdom, enlightenment, steadfastness and strength, and their many branches and leaves originating from a single stem, made a tree a natural symbol of unity that underlies the diversity of all living things. Evergreens appeared to have a stronger life force than deciduous trees because they retained their foliage through winter, so they represent immortality and eternal life. In ancient Europe, one was placed inside the house during winter solstice as a sign of hope and a continuity of life through the darkest months, which is how Christmas trees came to be. Large trees have always been powerful symbols of earthly life and the divine because they evoke awe, rever-

ence and wonder. According to many of the teachings of ancient wisdom, the universe comprises of a spiral or circular movement around a central axis or ‘centre pole,’ often depicted as the Tree of Life or Universal Tree. This symbolic image essentially embodies the notion that all life is interrelated and sacred, and that the universe is a living, evolving organism imbued with divine spirit – rather than a lifeless, clockwork mechanism. Whether ancient cultures prayed to one god or many, they acknowledged trees as being able to elevate the human consciousness to higher forms of perception, and to receive messages from the higher planes or the deeper self. In the Jewish tradition, the Tree of Knowledge (of Adam and Eve) imparts knowledge of good and evil (or bad), although the traditional translation is a fixed expression denoting ‘everything.’ In medieval Christianity, Jesus was associated with the holly tree – a word originally derived from the Anglo-Saxon ‘holegn’ and the Old High German ‘hulis,’ meaning ‘holy.’. In Hinduism, the Vedas linked trees with Brahma – the

immortal, innermost spirit of the universe – and it was under a pipal tree where the Buddha became enlightened. In the Moroccan Islamic tradition, the olive tree is the World Tree – a symbol of the universal human being and of the Prophet, and in Iroquois mythology, the Tree of Light connects the earth and sky and is a great source of power. There are many legends of tree oracles and places throughout the world of sacred groves and sanctuaries. Their leaves became the letters of the old alphabets, which enabled man to preserve the ‘word.’ Most terms for learning, knowledge, consciousness and wisdom are derived from words for tree or wood, such as wits, Wicca, witch and wizard. Wands were made from very specific tree species and because they were known to have almost human powers of perception and preferences, they were carefully matched to their owner’s personalities and considered dangerous and destructive in the wrong hands. So next time you’re under a shade tree, you might be getting a little more than relief from the sunshine, because that tree may be shining a little wisdom and enlightenment on you!

proceedings included time for the defendant to secure legal aid funding, a change of lawyer for the defence as well as several holdups in the trial itself. The trial began in February of this year and was initially scheduled for six weeks but has stretched to more than six months.

INFORMATION DESIGNED TO PROMOTE AND ENHANCE YOUR WELLBEING

Mental Health Matters What do a semicolon tattoo, the phrase “To Write Love on Her Arms” and cycling all have in common? They are all social media movements dedicated to inspire and encourage discussion about mental illness, recovery and hope. At first glance, it is unclear how these three things connect to mental illness. The fact is, not many of us will take the time to understand these social media movements until we know why they matter. In any given year,

one in five people in Canada will experience a mental health problem or illness, with a cost to the economy in excess of $50 billion. Only one in three people who experience a mental health problem will seek out and receive treatment. Of the approximately 4,000 Canadians who die every year as a result of suicide, many were confronting a mental health problem or illness. I urge you to take a moment to read some of the personal stories being shared

in connection with these movements. The stories of struggle, recovery and hope are uniting voices that often go unheard; messages like there’s no health without mental health and you are not alone resonate powerfully. Leveraging the conversa-tion about reducing the stigma of mental illness can be simple yet inspiring. Project Semi-Colon uses a simple semicolon symbol to carry a powerful message – their website says that a semicolon is used when an author

could’ve chosen to end their sentence, but chose not to. The author is you and the sentence is your life. September 10th is World Suicide Prevention Day, an annual event to reduce stigma and promote dialogue. This year’s theme is Preventing Suicide: Reaching Out and Saving Lives. It serves as a call to action to both indi-viduals and organizations. We all have a role to play in preventing suicide by offering support; we can make a difference and help save lives. If you or someone

you care about is in crisis, help is available, call 1-888353-2273 (1-888-353CARE) or visit the following websites for information: http:// w w w. c r i s i s c e n t r e. bc.ca and http:// youthinbc.com.

10 ways to manage school stress (NC) Adults, teens and even children can experience stress, especially during the school year. While stress can be the body’s way of preparing us to cope with potentially threatening situations, it becomes a problem when it interferes with our ability to properly handle our daily routines. Here are some tips to help you minimize its negative effects: 1. Figure out the source of your stress. Oftentimes we feel like everything is overwhelming. However, by getting specific and pinpointing the stressors in your life, you’re closer to coping. 2. Focus on what you can control. Identify these stress

triggers and determine how to take action. 3. Learn about relaxation, breathing, meditation and visualization techniques to help relax your mind. 4. Breathe to manage your symptoms. Deep breathing is one of the best ways to lower your body’s stress level. 5. Getting enough sleep is crucial. Stress sometimes causes troubled sleep and in turn insomnia reduces your ability to fight stress. 6. Manage your time. Organize your day and priorities more effectively. Learn to delegate and let go. 7. Take the time to eat well. Your body needs the energy and proper nutrients

to help face and manage stress. A healthy diet will ensure that you are fueled to succeed in all your daily tasks. 8. Take part in physical exercise, especially outdoors if you can. Yoga, for example, is proven as a stress-relieving activity. 9. Adopt a positive attitude. Put things into perspective and don’t dwell on the negative. 10. Look for help. While options for treatment to ease stress can be limited, homeopathic products such as Sedatil provide relief of nervousness, irritability, and hypersensitivity without drowsiness or risk of dependency. It offers a nonsedative solution that calms

IN FIND IT THE CLASSIFIEDS

WENDY POTTIE God called the other night. He was looking for a registrar for his Minor Hockey League in Heaven, so he took the best! On Saturday, August 22nd, Wendy Jane (Salter) Pottie volunteered to go to the big arena in the sky. Wendy was born January 8th 1935 in Salmon Arm B.C. She grew up in Blind Bay, B.C. on the family homestead (Notch Hill). She lived there with her parents Alfred and Edith Salter and her only sister Elizabeth Anne (Salter) Code, (all of whom predeceased her.) These were the days when she rode her horse down the hill to Blind Bay School. After completing high school and Sr. Matric (grade 13) in Salmon Arm, she attended business school in Vernon. Wendy then returned to Salmon Arm and worked at the Bank of Commerce, and later at Federated Co-op. Wendy loved her Family. She also loved Hockey. She was a proud Canadian who also enjoyed sewing, reading, gardening, hockey, pottery, tea, hockey, Chinese food, Hummingbirds, hockey, CBC radio and hockey. Wendy was never without a family dog. Wendy enjoyed many hours of watching children of all ages play minor hockey in any, and many arenas. She watched Hockey Night in Canada on television… unless there was a Silverbacks game in town. Wendy and John enjoyed many trips to mountain meadows in the spring, to see the wild flowers in bloom. Wendy also enjoyed… play-off hockey! Many might remember Wendy as the registrar of Salmon Arm Minor Hockey a volunteer for some 35 tireless years. Wendy is survived by her husband John of 59 years, their children Marie (Valley) Bebee of Enderby, Michael of Castlegar, B.C, Pamela (Matt) Dickey of Costa Mesa California, and Chris of Vernon. Grandchildren Nevan Bebee, Sarah (Brandon) Estabrooks of Enderby, Danielle Dickey of Costa Mesa, and Riley Pottie of Red Deer Alberta. In her last few years, she found her greatest joy in her Great Grand-daughter, Emrie Belle Estabrooks of Enderby. Fondly remembered by her nieces and nephews, Jerry (Linda), Debbie (Chris), Shelley (Jeff), Jay (Natalie), their Children and grandchildren, Melissa, Spencer (Ainslie), Cody, Seamus, Alexander, Shannon, Gweneth, Piper. Wendy was predeceased by her niece Linnie Code. The family would sincerely like to thank Dr. Plessis and the Community Care Aides who came to their home during the past ten years. Thank you also to the kind staff in Dogwood neighborhood, at Park Place, Piccadilly for their excellent comfort and care of Wendy in her last few days. Wendy always enjoyed flowers, but would have been most appreciative for a donation to Salmon Arm Minor Hockey,  PO Box 2323, Salmon Arm, BC V1E 4R3 so that a child, less fortunate, could play the game; or to the Stroke Recovery Association of BC 301 -1212 West Broadway, Vancouver, BC V6H 3V1. The family would like to enjoy a private family gathering for now, but plan a celebration of Life in the summer of 2016. (When the Hockey season is over.) Thank-you to Dave Wallensteen of Bowers Funeral Home for taking care of the arrangements. Condolences may be sent to the family through Wendy’s obituary at www.bowersfuneralservice. com

DAVIES, JACK With much sadness and immense gratitude for a long life well lived, we announce that Jack/Dad/Grandpa/ Great-Grandpa Davies passed away peacefully with his wife Stella by his side on August 29, 2015 in his 90th year. Jack was born April 25, 1925, immediately following his twin sister Nancy, who he always claimed he had kicked out of the womb first. He was the youngest of seven children to parents Lewis and Mary Davies of Port Alberni, BC.    Following a very happy childhood, Jack left high school at the age of 17 1/2 to join the Navy with his mother’s permission.  He proceeded to go to university for fourteen months and became an electrical artificer.  He toured the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans during WWII.  When the war ended he returned home to Port Alberni where he put his electrical skills to use to help build houses.  When the Government postal service came to Port Albeni, Jack jumped on board to become a mail carrier and had the honour of delivering the first letter to the mayor.  After a short time Jack returned to electrical work with the BC Power Commission and eventually BC Hydro for the remainder of his career. Jack met his wife Stella at the age of 21.  After a two-year courtship they were married May 15th, 1948 in Port Alberni.  They moved into their first home together in Sproat Lake and began building their family.  First came daughter Diane, then son Keith.  After seven years in Sproat Lake, they made their first move of many to Vernon BC, followed by Prince George, Alert Bay where Jack was promoted to district manager, then on to Nakusp, Invermere, and Courtney, until finally putting down permanent roots in Salmon Arm in 1974.  Jack retired from the Hydro business in 1985 and began to focus on his other interests and hobbies. Throughout his adult life, Jack was involved in the Kinsmen and Rotary clubs, where he participated in community projects, and was also involved with the Cancer Society as a volunteer.  He was very active with the BC Power Pioneers.  In addition to his humanitarian work, Jack also loved to work with his hands.  He loved woodworking best and built homes, toys, and furniture, among other projects, and had a tool collection that would put your local Home Hardware to shame.  Jack was generous with his talents and time and was quick to help his family, friends, and neighbours with their own projects. Above all else, Jack was a family man. He was a devoted and loving husband, a wonderful father to his two children, and an adoring, proud grandfather and great-grandfather.  Family always came first for Jack, and he welcomed every opportunity to gather them together, whether for holidays, summer vacations at the lake, or just a simple family dinner.  His wife Stella was the apple of his eye for 69 years and the greatest love of his life.   Jack was a quiet, private person with a quick wit that bordered on mischievous and a heart of gold. He will be greatly missed and fondly remembered by wife Stella, daughter Diane (Brian), son Keith (Leslie), grandchildren Melanie, Erik, Angela, Roslyn, and Ashley, and all 8.5 great-grandchildren. A celebration of life will be held at the United Church, 450 Okanagan Ave SE, Salmon Arm, BC, on Friday September 4th at 11am.  Reception to follow in the church hall.  In lieu of flowers, please give a donation to the charity of your choosing.    On line condolences may be sent to Jack’s obituary at www.bowersfuneralservice.com Funeral arrangements are in the care of Bowers Funeral Home, Salmon Arm.

PAULINE MARGARET “PEGGY” CLARKE It is with profound sadness we announce the passing of Pauline Margaret “Peggy” Clarke, who died on Saturday August 8th 2015, at the age of 94 1/2.

They settled first in Driftwood Creek, near Smithers, B.C., relocating several years later to Salmon Arm, which became Peggy’s home for the remainder of her life. Peggy loved to travel and was an avid skier, celebrating her 80th birthday on the slopes of Silver Star. She was a counselor for the Canadian Cancer Society and an energetic member of the Salmon Arm community, contributing in many different ways during her long and active life. A Memorial Service will be held on Friday, September 18th, at 2:00 pm at Bowers Funeral Home. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society.

Ode For My Husband & Family A Wonderful man, one of the Best, For sixty-five years, our marriage was blessed, 5 children we had: 4 girls and 1 boy, 10 grandkids, and 18 greats. Oh what a joy. A quiet unassuming man, whose feeling ran deep, Helping behind the scenes, not for accolades to reap. He did many things and touched many lives in his 87 years, An honest upright man who stood tall with all his family and peers. To the kids, grandkids and greats, so lucky to have known him, When hard decisions and dark clouds come, Get strength and help from your memories with these little words “What would Grandpa have done?” He said he’d found heaven on earth, The home and farm he built for his family really mattered. So on the spot he picked, to rest in peace, His ashes will be scattered, Goodbye my Darling, Farewell my love, but only for awhile, On the other side of the Great Divide, together, we will smile. ‘Til then I’ll have to muddle along, and do the best I can, But it’s a real hard go, for this old crow, And Lord knows I miss my man. My love to everyone of you, for always being there, For kindness, help and thoughtfulness, That show how much you care, A family is a precious thing, The best that you can get, Don’t ever throw that GOLD away, You’re certain to regret, Come visit me, it’s always GOOD To see your happy Mugs, We’ll all get through this chapter too, With work and Help and Hugs. ~Evelyn Lamb

Auditions - Mt. Ida Harmony

Just over 75 years ago, about 20 men got together in the rooftop gardens of a hotel in Tulsa, Oklahoma, to “just sing for fun.� They enjoyed the experience so much that the Barbershop Harmony Society was formed, and it has now beome the world’s greatest hobby, as well as the world largest all male singing association, with members participating in Barbershop Harmony on every continent the world over! For over 75 years now, the Barbershop Harmony Society has made tremendous strides in their music learning techniques, so the ability to readily read music is not really necessary. All that is needed is the desire to sing together with a fun bunch of guys! Mount Ida Harmony is hoping to increase their numbers by holding “Auditions For Admission.� So men, if you are over 14 years, and if you like to “sing in the shower,� you’ll love singing together with Mount Ida Harmony on Thursday, September 17 at the Community Room at Askew’s Uptown Store! No obligations! No commitments! No strings attached! If you still have questions, please contact Ron Long 250-833-1972.
