Seniors advocate finds holes in home support

By Tom Fletcher, Black Press A third of people caring for a frail senior at home are in distress, and yet some provincial supports such as adult day programs remain under-

used, according to a new report from B.C.’s Seniors Advocate. A survey of health assessments for 30,000 B.C. seniors found that the majority of those who report

fatigue and other stresses from caring for a relative or friend aren’t using provincial programs. B.C. offers three kinds of respite services, adult day programs, respite beds in care facilities that offer care for up to 30 days at a time, and home support visits from care aides. Seniors Advocate Isobel Mackenzie said availability of programs is better in urban areas than rural ones, but in general B.C. offers less respite care than Alberta and has more unpaid caregivers reporting distress. Mackenzie says increasing availability for adult day programs could reduce emergency visits from complex home care patients by a third, and hospital admissions by half, detecting medication or other health problems before they produce a hospital visit. One puzzling result from the survey is that while there are

waiting lists for adult day programs in B.C., one out of four spaces is empty each day. Mackenzie said there may be logistical problems with home care patients, such as a need to attend medical appointments at the same time as the day program is offered. Mackenzie isn’t suggesting government-paid substitutes can replace volunteer caregivers, most of whom are spouses or other relatives, but says they should have more opportunities to take a break. “Caregivers do it all,” she said. “Sometimes it is is simple as driving mum to the doctor’s office. Other times it is as complicated as insulin injections or changing catheter bags. “Sometimes it is dropping in on mum and dad at the end of the work day and other times it is living with your wife of 65-plus years as she surrenders to the rav-

ages of dementia, does not know who you are, cannot be left alone and must be fed and toileted.” Health Minister Terry Lake said the province has increased investments in home health services over the past 10 years, and is working with health authorities to shift from hospital to home-care as the population ages. Mackenzie said the number of adult day program clients and days utilized has declined in the last three years, and the number of respite beds at care facilities also appears to be down. The survey found that only half of the clients registered for home support reported receiving a home visit in the previous seven days. The report and other services are available at the Seniors Advocate website, www.seniorsadvocatebc.ca.

Thanksgiving food drive

The BC Thanksgiving Food Drive is a provincial organization with volunteers in every major community in BC, and is currently organizing the fifth annual Food Drive, scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 19. During the week prior to Sept 19th, volunteers dropped off grocery bags to the doorsteps of many homes in Salmon Arm, Enderby, Sicamous, and the surrounding area, along with instructions. The same volunteers will then come back between 9:00 and 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 19 to pick up the food donations. On the day of the food drive, if for whatever reason the bags have not been picked up, a local call-in number has been set up. Donors are asked to call this number if no one has come to collect the donation bags by 12:30 p.m. The local call in-number is 250-803-4183. If you are not going to be home and not want to leave the bag of food on your porch, please call this number and a pickup will be arranged. Donations collected this year in Salmon Arm will be divided between Second Harvest and

Salvation Army food banks. Those collected in Enderby and Sicamous will go directly to their respective food banks. Organizers are hoping to collect 118,000 pounds of food this year. During last year’s drive, over 1147 volunteers from eight communities in the Okanagan (Oliver, Penticton, Merritt, West Kelowna, Kelowna, Vernon, Salmon Arm and Enderby), collected 92,992 pounds of food for local food banks across the interior of BC. This year organizers are enlisting help for Blind Bay and Silver Creek as well. This massive initiative is only possible with the help of volunteers and donors. Donors are asked to give non-perishable food and to check the expiry dates on all items. Thank you for your help and generosity. If you can and would like to aid in this endeavour, call Ian Shields at 250-832-4611, or Steve Grey-at 250-803-0110, or drop by the International Business Tax Centre 372 Hudson Ave., Suite 102 (right across from the Salmon Arm post office).

Keep obesity out of first place

Depending on which research study one reads concerning the leading causes of preventable deaths, smoking and obesity are always jockeying for first and second place. Regardless of how the statistics are analyzed, it is safe to assume they both are the top ways to drastically shorten your existence on this planet. So, the good news is that the solutions to these leading killers have already been solved and they are pretty black and white. To not die early from smoking – don’t smoke; pretty straightforward. As for the other leading killer – obesity, here are a few simple suggestions to help you avoid or shed excess body weight. Move that body. One of the most effective means of managing and losing weight is through exercise. For someone that is severely obese or even mildly overweight, the idea of working out in a gym among a bunch of fitness enthusiasts can be too much. The good news is, burning extra calories and fat doesn’t

greatly benefit your weight loss efforts. Fewer calories in will require less activity to burn them off. A couple important issues with this strategy is to ensure you aren’t too aggressive with limiting portion sizes. Going from over-eating to immediately starving yourself will have an opposite effect. When your body senses a drastic reduction in calories, it will intentionally store more calories as fat to save you from starvation. A safer and more effective practice is to gradually reduce the portion sizes of fattening and processed foods, while maintaining (or even increasing) levels of healthy foods. Don’t stress. The final tip to fight obesity relates to emotional stress. There are so many emotional aspects to over-eating that stress must also be addressed. Stress will cause people to lose motivation to exercise, will result in overindulgence of comfort foods, and will interfere with sleep. Work on reducing your emotional stressors.

In addition, the more muscle you build, the faster the weight will come off, because lean muscle constantly burn calories even when you sleep! The first step to success – move your body more than you currently do. Sleep more. Poor quality or inadequate amount of sleep has a negative effect on your body weight. Lack of sleep interferes with the production of important hormones that regulate appetite and fat storage. To improve your sleep, limit your consumption of caffeine and assess your night-time rituals to be sure you are helping your body prepare for a restful sleep. Monitor your portions.

School transition

Fall is here (how did that happen?) and many of our children are beginning their school journey, or continuing on to the next grade. Expectations with academics and performance seem to increase dramatically as our children age, bringing intense levels of anxiety for many kids. Some young children have a tough time switching back to the school routine from the carefree days of summer, or with entering into a new environment for the first time. Dr. Gordon Neufeld, a psychologist based in Vancouver and author of Hold On to your Kids, writes of how parents today have lost their intuition and wisdom for parenting their children. We rely on experts for the answers. The following suggestions are a few things that may support your child with feeling comfortable in their school environment and in an absence from you. However, remember that YOU are the expert on your child. Trust your gut. What need is their behaviour trying to convey? Explore the playground: During an evening or weekend, head to your child’s school playground. This can build confidence for your child in their surroundings with your support. Build a bridge: Send an attachment reminder with your child. A photo of the family in their backpack, or a note in their lunchbox. If you write on a banana with a toothpick, the message will magically appear by lunchtime! Build connection: Have a photo of your child’s teacher at home, and talk to your child about what the teacher’s role is in supporting them in learning and growing. Discuss who they know at the school and who they can lean on. At the end of the day, explore various ways to ask your child in an open-ended way how their day was. When we know our children have a tough time with transitions, it can be tempting to probe for pain – “Was it OK?� “Were you scared?� – which may increase stress for the child. Instead, show some confidence in your child’s strengths and ability to be independent, and they will adjust with time.

McGuire Lake Park. Participants will utilize their superpowers by generating awareness of the disease and helping to raise funds for valuable education, resources and support services. Proceeds from the walk will also be invested in vital research, including that which investigates the benefits of exercise for symptom management. “In addition to promoting general awareness of the disease to the public, over the last few years we’ve been focusing our efforts on encouraging the inclusion of challenging

exercises as a part of one’s treatment plan� says Jean Blake, CEO of Parkinson Society British Columbia (PSBC). Recent research has yielded results that favour exercise as a method of delaying the progression of the disease. In June 2015, the National Parkinson Foundation (NPF) released the results of the largest clinical study of Parkinson’s ever, collecting data from over 3,000 participants. “This study makes it clear that everyone with Parkinson’s disease should be exercis-

ing. Patients suffer when they delay starting their exercise, and it doesn’t seem to matter what they do, they benefit from just getting up and moving,� said Michael S. Okun, MD, NPF’s National Medical Director. As the largest national fundraising event for Parkinson’s, SuperWalk has allowed PSBC to develop programming that not only encourages exercise, but teaches the most effective methods for managing the varying and progressive symptoms of the disease. This September, the Society welcomes Becky Farley, CEO and founder of the Parkinson Wellness Recovery (PWR!) pro-

gramming to train local physiotherapists and fitness instructors on effective exercise techniques specifically for those living with Parkinson’s. Every year, thousands of Canadians

participate in Parkinson SuperWalk. Together, through fundraising efforts, PSBC can continue their quest for a cure and support Canadians touched by Parkinson’s. File photo.

Looking back through history: FIVE SALMON ARM COUPLES SPONSORED A REFUGEE VIETNAMESE BOAT FAMILY Today, the media is full of news on Syrians escaping by boat from their country, headed for their goal of western Europe. Starting in 1978, the media was full of pictures of families escaping Vietnam after a 10-year war. They paid to escape the Communist country in overcrowded fishing boats. Many were attacked by pirates and murdered or sold into slavery and prostitution. Five couples in Salmon Arm sponsored a family to come here from a refugee camp, with help from the federal government. First to come were four teenagers. I was asked if I would hire an 18-year-old girl who had worked for a book bindery. Thuong Ly was hired for Shoppers’ Guide Quick Printing, and worked with Dale Boonstra. She didn’t know a word of English, but learned quickly and was a pleasure to have on staff. I remember how disappointed she was in 1982 when seven co-workers left and started Monitor, a paper and print shop on Hudson Ave. that lasted 11 months. THE VIETAMESE FATHER WAS A TAILOR When the four teenagers were settled and some were working, they bought a car like mine, a Taurus. Thuong couldn’t see why young people would drive around and around the town in their cars. They traded it for a smaller car. The five local couples sponsored the parents of the young people to come to Salmon Arm. The father had been a tailor, so we put an ad in Shoppers’ Guide. Jim Scales asked him to make a suit for him. After taking careful measurements, Thuong’s father sewed a suit. JIM AND I ATTENDED THUONG’S WEDDING A few years later, the family moved to Vancouver. Jim and I were invited to Thuong’s wedding to a boy she met on the boat leaving Vietnam. I recall that we paid for our own meals in a restaurant in Chinatown. I had asked Thuong how many people she expected. She said 12. But when we got to the hall, we saw there were 12 round tables, with 10 guests to a table. The bride changed her dress four times. THUONG AND FAMILY MOVED TO ONTARIO We sent our Christmas letters to Thuong, and knew she and her husband moved to Ontario and had a family. When we were in Toronto for a conference, we visited Thuong and her family, and enjoyed a delicious Vietnamese supper with them. Thuong and her husband were employed, and worked different shifts so did not need someone to look after their three children. Thuong was working in a clothing factory. All day she sewed left sleeves onto a sweatshirt torso. WITH MY CAR STILL IN CALGARY, I USE SHUSWAP TRANSIT I am very impressed with the transit system in Salmon Arm. For example: on Tuesday, Sept. 8, I got on the bus near my home on Auto Rd. near 20th St SE at 4:15 and went downtown, because my car is still in Calgary, waiting for a Smart part from Germany. I went to my bank, to SASCU, to Tim Hortons, to the post office, shopped at Askew’s, walked to the new school district building for its official opening at 5:30, had a quick private tour up the back stairs, walked to Okanagan Avenue to catch the

bus and was home at exactly 6:15. Two hours! The cost per trip is $1.50 for adults and $1.25 for seniors. I pay $2 each time because I am so grateful to have the bus system! I didn’t have to look for a parking space. I didn’t have to keep checking to see if I should refuel. Didn’t have to wait for the light to change to green. Didn’t have to watch for a senior driver who might lose control and hit me. Didn’t have to watch for a semi that might be breathing down my back. SHUSWAP TRANSIT HAS THREE SPONSORS: THE CITY, REGIONAL DISTRICT, BC TRANSIT Three buses have regular routes in the city six days a week. They leave at 7 a.m. from Askew’s downtown five days a week, with 9 a.m. departure on Saturdays. The final trip leaves Askew’s at 6 p.m. Buses also go to Pierre’s Point, and Shopper’s Shuttle to shopping centres in the city. HandyDART picks up people by appointment. Regional Transit serves one day a week to Eagle Bay via White Lake, Sorrento via Blind Bay, and Enderby. The small buses are efficient and the drivers are professional. THE DISTRICT EDUCATION SUPPORT CENTRE The new building combines staff from four previous work sites all into one: South Canoe Centre, the tech centre and music department, the district resource centre and the former district office. On my tour I noticed the building is functional and efficient. An open house for staff and the public is being planned for late September when the building should be totally finished, and boxes will be unpacked. TOO MANY PEOPLE ARE GOING TO COLLEGE Do you readers have children attending a college or university without a long-term plan? Are they piling up debt without a firm plan for their future? Oliver Lee is an attorney and assistant professor of history in an American college who wrote on Sept. 8, 2015: “I have one of the best jobs in academia. Here’s why I’m walking away. In a university system like ours, where supply and demand are distorted, many promising young people make rash decisions with an inadequate understanding of their long-term implications. Even for people like me, who succeed despite the odds, it’s possible to look back and realize we’ve worked toward a disappointment, ending up as ‘winners’ of a mess that damages its participants more every day.” SCAM CALL FROM REVENUE CANADA A woman called me when she was in a panic after receiving two calls from a man with a foreign accent who said he was with Revenue Canada. He said she owes money for her income tax and she will need a lawyer. He was playing hardball with her. She said it must be a mistake and he said: “We don’t make mistakes.” She phoned me and said she loves this town and doesn’t want to be in trouble with the government. I advised her to ignore him, and to hang up if he calls again. MOBILE SERVICE TO PREPARE A WILL We need a mobile service that prepares legal documents for the many seniors who live in this area.

Kamloops has lawyer Bruce Swanson who advertises in The Connector paper as Wills on Wheels. He does wills, probate, enduring powers of attorney and representation agreements in a home or at a bedside. www.gibraltarlawgroup.com Calgary has a mobile notary public business that will go anywhere in the province. I met one of the notaries when I tried to help an elderly relative write a will. Jason is her driver and appointment-taker. The website www. affordablenotarypublic.com is full of information, including fees. ELKS CLUB WILL HOLD GIANT PIG ROAST Tickets are $20 for a giant pig roast at Elks Hall on Oct. 3. The hall is at 3690 30 St. NE, Salmon Arm. Cocktails 4:30, dinner at 6. Tickets from Elks’ members and at Pharmasave. I bought mine. SALMON ARM’S FIRST ANNUAL APPLE FESTIVAL Downtown Salmon Arm will host an apple festival from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sat., Sept. 26 at the Ross Street Plaza. The Kids Zone is from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Activities and games, face-painting and a children’s entertainer. Local orchard growers will be present with sampling and selling their apples.

Letters to the Editor Distracted driving

I was reading that a third Tim Hortons may be going in at the SmartCentre location and would have a double drive thru. It is now against the law to text or talk on a cell phone while driving but it’s still OK to eat and drink while driving!!! I would consider eating and drinking behind the wheel of a moving vehicle to be distracted driving. Also, with all the emphasis on ‘Participaction’ and exercise wouldn’t it be better for people to stop, get out of their vehicle and walk into Tims? Bill Mohninger, Salmon Arm ERRORS AND OMISSIONS

Letters to the Editor Highway mixup

I noticed before that Sally Scales has her highways confused, and if someone is looking for Waterside Winery off Hwy 97B they won’t find it. Hwy 97 comes thru the Okanagan Valley, takes a turn at Swan Lake and goes to the Monte Creek junction and then starts up again at Cache Creek and heads north. Hwy 97A starts at Swan Lake and goes to Sicamous, and Hwy 97B starts at the junction at Bairds’ gravel pit and goes to the junction at Salmon Arm. Hope this helps. J. Buchanan, Enderby

Tax fairness

Both Trudeau and Mulcair want to play ‘Robin Hood.’ Their simplistic way is to cancel income-splitting. There are a great number of retired couples in Canada living only on pension income; there is no way that they are “rich.” Usually the major pension income is registered to one member in a couple. Income-splitting for tax purposes is one break we get in all fairness. Have either of these guys ever defined where the split is between the “rich” and the “middle class”? Ron Dash, Salmon Arm

The Wood Shop is located at 4921 Auto Road S.E. in the industrial park. They are open from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday and from 7:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on Friday. Contact them at 250-832-2552 or by email, stew@thewoodshop.co or travis@thewoodshop. co

The Wood Shop This summer, Stew Bird (right) and Travis Johnston (left) bought Be-Ja Cabinets and have renamed the company The Wood Shop, Millwork & Joinery Inc. “I’ve always been involved in carpentry and cabinetry to some extent,” says Stew, who has been primarily self-employed since he was 20. “This was the next step.” Stew grew up in 100 Mile House. While he and his wife, Nicole, were living in Vancouver they looked around for somewhere to really settle down. “We searched around and we chose Salmon Arm to live. We moved here in 2007.” Nicole has been working at Browne Johnson Land Surveyors since then, and Stew worked for a time at Mi-Tec. “I was with them for about a year and then I went on my own again, doing finishing carpentry and doing kitchens here and there.” Travis grew up in Sorrento and knew what he wanted to do from a young age. “I took woodworking in high school since grade eight; I just enjoyed working with my hands and creating something. I got into an apprenticeship right out of high school, I worked for Hillside Cabinets in Balmoral.” When the opportunity came up to buy the business Stew and Travis were willing ‘to put everything on the line to move forward.’ With help and support from Community Futures and Jeff Johnson at BDO Professionals, everything came together. At The Wood Shop, Stew and Travis specialize in custom cabinetry, millwork, custom handrails and furniture, and countertops. “Our spectrum is fairly wide open, and there’s an option for everyone,” says Stew. They plan to redo the showroom and have a grand opening in the spring. Their website will be up and running before Christmas. Employees Dan Peters and Damon Kent will continue to work at the Wood Shop. Chris Pentecost will be doing administrative work and they hired Jason Thompson.

Ducks Unlimited annual banquet Early Bird tickets are on sale for the annual dinner and auction put on by the Salmon Arm Chapter of Ducks Unlimited Canada. “The deadline for Early Bird tickets is October 6th. Ticketholders will then be entered in a draw for a limited edition Ducks Unlimited picture by Wanda DeWaard,” says Linda MacDonald, (pictured above, at right, along with Bente Jorgensen), Co-Chair of the Salmon Arm Chapter. “The second draw is for a diamond ring.” This is the 32nd annual banquet and tickets are $35. There will be door prizes, raffles, live and silent auctions at the event including all types of gear for outdoor enthusiasts, carvings, sculptures, and a houseboat vacation. Ducks Unlimited Canada is dedicated to the increase and perpetuation of North American waterfowl populations through the conservation of wetland ecosystems. Locally, Ducks Unlimited Canada has been involved in many conservation projects over the years, including the foreshore and Hucul Pond. The banquet takes place at the Elks Hall on Saturday, October 24th. For tickets phone Champion Engraving at (250) 832-7335 or Linda MacDonald at (250) 832-6887.

Robyn, the receptionist, will also be at the Tangles location and will be phoning people to confirm their

appointments at the new location. To contact Tangles, phone 250-832-8746.

To contact the spa phone 250-8032235. Chamber update August stats at the Salmon Arm Visitor Centre show more tourists stopped by than in August 2014. “July was down at the Visitor Centre but that doesn’t necessarily reflect what’s going on outside of these walls,” says Visitor Centre Coordinator Janice Dewitt. “Now the salmon run is happening. It isn’t a dominant year but there’s still a lot of salmon and it’s worth making a trip.” The Chamber is hosting their first Annual Charity Golf Tournament on Sunday, September 20 at the Salmon Arm Golf Course, in support of Cystic Fibrosis. This is a fun (shotgun scramble) tournament. For more information visit the Chamber of Commerce website, sachamber.bc. ca

The art of the plow

“If plowing was merely a metaphor for your life and the things that you do, from your start to your finish your land will diminish, it ain’t easy to keep it all true!” The leaves are turning gold, apples litter the ground, the grain is cut and hopefully dry and in the bin, and its time to turn the stubble under and prepare for next years crop. Every year since 1976 the North Okanagan Plowing Association has been hosting the fall plowing match, where plowmen and women from across BC gather on a beautiful farm between Enderby and Armstrong to test their skills at the ancient art of the plow. This year’s event takes place Saturday, September 26, on Lansdowne Road. Signs will be posted on the highway from both Enderby and Armstrong. Tractor and Horse plowing starts at 10:30 and ends at 3:00. You can also stay and watch the trophy-giving celebration and unwind with the plowpeople. During the lunch break (12:00–1:00) there will be a stock dog demonstration. This year the organizers are also featuring a farmers market, tractor games, delicious food and an archival display of the history of the plowing match. Price at the gate is a whopping $2.00 per adult, with children 12 and under free. This is a fun and informative afternoon for families and celebrates a community founded on sustainable agriculture.

ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT Dance to Cuban rhythms

On September 25th, the Enderby & District Arts Council present a great evening of music and dancing to the lively five-member band from Santiago de Cuba, Brisas del Palmar. Their rich harmonies have been pleasing crowds in Santiago de Cuba since their inception in 1999, where they perfected the boleros, sons, and guarachas of their island homeland. Their recordings include a varied repertoire of traditional Cuban music, a cap-

pellas, romantic ballads, and original compositions, reflecting their unique style and interpretation. The band is known in Cuba as one of the leading groups of traditional music. In winter months, Brisas del Palmar perform at the Bodequita del Medio, the Havana bar made famous by Ernest Hemingway, and now one of the most important contemporary music venues in Cuba. The group is anchored by two brothers, Rosel and Yordanis Lamoru

Cancanon, both singers on guitars, and a very talented upright bass player, Julio Avila. Two other musicians are joining them for their 2015 Western Canada tour. Concert will start at 7:30 p.m., Friday, September 25th at the Enderby Drill Hall, 200 George St/Hwy 97A south. Tickets are $15 and available at the door ($10 for youth under 18) Refreshments will be served. For more information, contact Diana at 250-8382141.

What We Did On Our Holiday

The first place grand prize winner, for the third year in a row, was Lorie Moore, this time for her photo Duck Hunter (above). Lorie clearly has a magic touch for her views with a lens. In second place was Nancy Peterson for the Lightening capture overlooking Canoe. The cave shot, Baimo Cave, by Martin Kyllo was in third place. Fourth was Leahann Mohie for I Spy and finishing fifth was Leigh Anne Linville

Winning the people’s choice in this category was Jocelyne Wilson’s pose with her goat. She receives $25 from the Shuswap Veterinary Clinic. Three official judges chose the ribbon winners and the Best of Show and Special Prize recipients. The organizers wish to thank their sponsors Pharmasave, Clive Bryson, The Shuswap Arts Council, Salmon Arm Observer, and the Shuswap Photo Arts Club who awarded

What We Did On Our Holiday shares the summer vacation of Doug (David Tennant), Abi (Rosamund Pike), and their three children when they make the trip from London to Scotland for a big family reunion and birthday celebration for their ailing grandfather, Gordie (Billy Connolly). There’s only one thing: Doug and Abi are going through a bitter divorce and ask their children to keep it a secret from everyone so as not to upset Gordie. But as the inevitable feuds erupt and the children let things slip, the emotional and hilarious repercussions force the family to come together and finally put aside their differences. This is a joint presentation with the Salmar Theatre, and the Shuswap Film Society will be your special hosts on Friday, September 18 and Saturday, September 19 with door prizes awarded to our audience. What We Did On Our Holiday shows at 7:30 p.m. between September 18-24 at the Salmar Classic Theatre.

Letters to the Editor

Reckless truck driver runs red light

Gratitude for support

The Sorrento Drop In Society Hall has taken on a new look. We would like to thank Sorrento Building Centre for their donation of paint and supplies. This was very generous of Steve and Brian, the proprietors, and we thank them for it. With the help of a talented paint-

er, who is part of our organization, this fresh coat of paint has given the hall a brighter and larger feeling. If you are looking for a hall to rent for your next occasion, Sorrento Drop In Society is the place to call. Margo Friesen, Secretary, Sorrento Drop In Society Board

Last Saturday, Sept. 12, at 1:15 in the afternoon, I came within one second and less than a metre from losing my life. I was driving to downtown, crossing the highway at Ross St. with the green light in my favour. Thank God I was slowing down to look for pedestrians and turning vehicles. As I drove out across the highway, a semi truck sped through the red light, passing less than an arm’s length in front of my car. The sight of the truck’s undercarriage and wheels flying by in front of me is something I won’t soon forget. My stomach turns over at the thought of what would have happened if there had been anyone in the crosswalk at that moment. How many people have to be killed on the highway through town before speeding and running red lights stops? Couldn’t there be large flashing lights on the highway warning drivers that they are entering a downtown area and that there are multiple stop lights and pedestrian crossings? Can the speed limit

through downtown be lowered? Dominoes confirmed that the truck dropped off supplies at the pizza outlet a few minutes later. I would appreciate a call (at 250-832-2642) from anyone who witnessed a Dominoes supply truck running the red light light on Saturday afternoon. Or, they can call Dominoes national office at 1-866903-1151 and complain about the driver’s reckless speeding. Kalene Bourque, Salmon Arm

Who understands issues facing this riding?

It is with utter disgust and contempt that I read Mr. Richard Smiley’s letter entitled “Is the ‘same old same old’ serving us well?” Mr. Smiley writes: “We have four candidates in the Shuswap. One is a lawyer working on government tribunals, one is currently a professor in Toronto, one ha returned to university after managing businesses and working in the financial sector, and one has never gone anywhere and

owns a detailing company in Salmon Arm.” Of course, the latter description refers to the Conservative candidate, Mel Arnold. The insinuation is very obvious – if you are a lawyer or a university professor, you are much more qualified to represent the people of this riding in Ottawa. How arrogant can a person get! Again, as Mr. Smiley states: “The voters will decide . . .”. When I consider all the candi-

dates and, personally, I think they are all worthy, but I have to consider which one I want to represent me. Who best understands my concerns and the issues facing this riding? Who will have a voice for the people of North Okanagan - Shuswap? Is it a lawyer working on government tribunals? Or a university professor teaching in Toronto? Or perhaps it is that small business owner who knows what it takes to work

hard and build a successful small business here in the Shuswap; someone who is not afraid to get his hands dirty and who will hard for the people he represents. Given the choice, I will choose the hard-working small business owner every time. Mr. Smiley can have his lawyers or his academics if he prefers, but I’d rather elect a person who will speak for me. Fred Engels, Mara

Canadians concerned with foreign values

One of the concerns surrounding newly arrived people from other countries is their wanting to introduce all of their religious beliefs and customs from their previous homelands. Prior to immigrating, the applicants knew Canada’s laws, values, traditions and practices differed from the ones they were leaving. These differences range from religion, culture and how an individual lives. In spite of these differences they chose to immigrate to Canada. In Canada we believe in human rights for all, which includes the rights of women. Canadian rights and freedoms are sometimes infringed upon by some religions that discriminate against women and younger female children. In some Muslim communities women must

abide by the practice of arranged marriages, in some countries young female Muslim children are forced endure to sex organ surgery, many women are denied an education, are denied an equal place in their houses of worship and they must wear clothing that hides all of their bodies. Muslim women are considered second to Muslim men. Once in Canada many newly arrived immigrants insist they be allowed to introduce the practices they left behind. Perhaps their transition to other countries would have been made much simpler if they had chosen to move to a country that already practised their chosen religion and ways of life. All Muslims, regardless of where they live use the Quran as their religious guide to not only their

religion, but to determine how they should live their lives. The Quran also makes reference to those that do not and will not follow the Quran. For the May long weekend, 1000 Muslim men travelled to Salmon Arm. Muslim women were not allowed to accompany Muslim men and attend the quasi-religious gathering in Salmon Arm. As Canada is well known for its tolerance of others, perhaps it is the opinion of many that we do not need to welcome a religious group to Salmon Arm when they do not respect the rights of women? Then, to suggest we need to draw Salmon Arm’s mayor into the controversy is both unfair to the mayor, and not very well thought out by those suggesting this.

Canada has a broad history of religions, traditions, cultures and freedoms established a very long time ago by our great grandparents and grandparents. The majority of Canadians believe in these longstanding practices and want them to remain. These things add to what Canada is all about. The majority of Canadians do not want changes to our longstanding traditions, cultures, values and religions. The May 2015 Muslim event in Salmon Arm might raise the question: “Which Canada do you want for your children and grandchildren; is it one that embraces these new ways from foreign lands or do we wish to keep Canada as we know it and love”? B. Campbell, Sorrento

Business MATTERS Summer 2015 appears to have been a successful season for tourists visiting Salmon Arm. Our Chamber board is hearing many businesses have experienced a positive season over last year. Visitor Centre statistics for July were down however August rallied with a higher number than 2014.

For those who were out and about, it was plainly visible we had visitors - and lots of them - from all over the world. Hats off to all our community members who help make tourists feel welcome and informed when they visit us. The Visitor Centre recently created its own Facebook page Explore Salmon Arm. Check it out and please ‘like us’. The Chamber hosted our All Candidates Forum on Thursday, Sept 17. Thank you to all who attended and keep asking your questions directly to the candidates. It’s important to be informed before casting your vote on October 19. We are also working with DSA to repurpose and add historic & contemporary elements to the downtown pillar signs.

Candidates forum in Sicamous

SICAMOUS, BC - The Sicamous & District Chamber of Commerce has planned an All Candidates Forum to take place in Sicamous, BC, ahead of the October 19, 2015 federal election. The debate will take place on Monday, October 5, 2015 from 6:30 to 8:00 pm at the Sicamous & District Recreation Centre. Doors will open at 6:00 pm and both the Resource Centre’s and Sicamous Eagles’ buses will be available to transport residents who need it from the Sicamous Seniors Centre to and from the Recreation Centre. All four candidates in the North OkanaganShuswap riding have confirmed they will attend the debate. These candidates include Mel Arnold of the Conservative Party, Cindy Derkaz of the Liberal Party, Jacqui Gingras of the NDP Party, and Chris George of the Green Party. The Chamber of Commerce is looking for questions for the candidates from the community ahead of the debate. If you have a question you would like asked of one or all of the candidates please submit it to the Chamber of Commerce. You can do this by phoning the Chamber office during regular work hours at 250-836-0002, stopping by the Visitor Centre in the District building to submit a question on paper, emailing your questions to the communications director at communications@sicamouschamber.bc.ca, or filling out the form on the Chamber website at sicamouschamber.bc.ca/events.

Summer Stomp survey results

Based on feedback from 35 business respondents and 48 individual respondents to a survey conducted by the Sicamous Chamber of Commerce, overall, the 2015 Summer Stomp and Burnout event was loved, enjoyed, and looked forward to by mainly out-of-towners. Some locals were not looking forward to it and claimed they left town because of it or merely “tolerated” it. There was also a large segment of locals that didn’t feel strongly about it either way. Though they could see the economic benefit potential, they felt it was poorly planned and organized, and many didn’t take part themselves. A slight majority of local businesses (51.6% of survey respondents) claim the Stomp either does nothing for their business or actually hinders it; although there are a number of businesses that claimed this was their busiest weekend of the year! Those businesses were mainly a few of the restaurants, motels and other accommodations, and liquor and beer sales and pubs. The community is definitely divided over the Summer Stomp and Burnout. However, the respondents feel that if the planning committee can address these issues, they could get a lot more people on board with hosting the event in Sicamous in future years: • Provide more and better advertising • Provide more information to local businesses to give out to customers • Stick to the planned schedule • Focus on more inclusion of the local community and businesses • Add more family friendly events in the downtown core, including music and children’s games and more vendors • Consider a two-day event downtown so it’s “worth it” for participants, vendors, and local businesses to get involved Many respondents stated they believe the Stomp could be or already is a wonderful way to highlight Sicamous as a fun destination. The Summer Stomp and Burnout has the potential to be a much loved economic driver in Sicamous in the coming years.

Tall tales of the outdoors

Many of us hunters and anglers shoot more game and catch more fish sittin’ around the campfire in the evening, after the guns are stored away and the tall tales begin. A CO whom I worked with doing moose, deer, and hunter checks in the Mica/Revelstoke area a few years back also lamented about the great times he enjoyed doing compliance checks on moose hunters up north. It was mostly the nature of and comraderie with all the chaps he met; and the feeling of being out in nature–a tension release from the hustle and bustle of the work week and commitments we all have. After all, we are a privileged lot to have the freedom to buy game tags are a fair price, in combination with a liberal hunting season. But getting back to the tall tales...This story happened to my buddy Earl while we were hunting elk and whitetails on a large ranch last season in the Brisko area south of Golden. Setting up way before dawn, overlooking a large alfalfa field, Earl was hunkered down in his camo outfit, waiting for a deer or elk to appear. Off in the distance high above in the bush came a guttural sound of a large animal. We thought it was a large grizzly. Suddenly a black shape emerge from the tree line, and a black angus bull appeared. Grunting in a guttural tone he walked across the field to Earl’s hidey-hole. We left to walk down the road adjoining the field with our newfound friend following, all the time bellowing his defiance. It was his field, and we’d better watch out! Earl and he went almost nose to nose, on how he had wrecked our morning hunt. Checking his bright yellow ear tag, we saw that his name was “Herby.” A couple evenings later, Earl set up

shuswapoutdoors

once again on a fence line, only to have a “bark” right beside him. Turning suddenly, a larger-than-life 5-point bull elk stood looking at him. Sitting around the campfire that evening, we couldn’t help but bug Earl about his newfound buddy Herby. Next morning, not wanting Herby around to cause a fuss, we decided to use our elk calls; one was a “Hoochy-momma,” a cow call for bringing in wayward bulls; and a bull call as well.

by Hank Shelley

Game calls: Different calls are useful for bringing in animals during the rut, or to lure in a curious animal. I guess you could say game calling strengthens our bond to the outdoors and nature. Imitating the sounds of the animals in our woods and marshes is wonderment in itself. When I was living in Merritt a few years back, an old First Nations elder showed me how to call Blue Grouse. Put your tongue to one side of your mouth, and suck back using a clucking

or clicking sound. To stop a deer or bear from running away, start a fawn bleating sound: “maa-maaa,” in wistful loud tones. Now, as far as that silly old Herby the bull is is concerned, when he starts pawing the dirt like he did and grunts that guttural grunt, just yell in a human-sounding voice, and head for that tall fence halfway across the field! Here and there in the Shuswap Salmon: For those wanting to catch a couple a’ pink salmon, the South Thompson and Kamloops Lake is now open for two fish a day, until the 22nd of this month. One adult Chinook can also be retained with three jacks (immature Chinook). Another good place to catch jacks is off the pilings below the Che bridge, using smaller roe bags and a small single barbless hook. That season closes also on 22nd. Bears: This continues to be a major issue. If you are hunting in bear country, be sure to pack along a good bear spray. Do not have it in your packsack, but on your belt for quick use. A friend from Armstrong had a canister of bear spray in his trailer while camping at Skimikin Lake last week. It had fallen down by the chesterfield, and when his wife went to retrieve it, it punctured, spraying her in the face. She was rushed to hospital. Bear spray is very strong and will shut down a human’s breathing if it gets into the lungs. Be safe. Use it safely. It’s only used on bears and other aggressive critters. Tight lines and straight shootin’!

SPORTS & LEISURE Horseshoe season finale

Heads up! Thirty-two participants from clubs throughout the Shuswap met for a mixed doubles tournament at the Cedar Heights Community Association courts on Saturday, September 12. Done in Round Robin format, the courts were very busy with competitive play, many spectators and many dedicated volunteers. Photo contributed.

Backs victorious in season opener

The Silverbacks scored three second period goals en route to a 4-2 win at home over the defending BCHL champion, Penticton Vees on Friday at the Shaw Centre in Salmon Arm to open the 2015-16 BCHL regular season. Over 1700 people were attending. Elijiah Barriga of West Covina, California gave the ‘Backs a 1-0 lead and potted his first BCHL goal with 3:24 remaining in the opening period. Former Vee, Josh Laframboise assisted on the goal that gave the home team a 1-0 lead after 20 minutes. 20-year-old starter Angus Redmond stopped all 10 of the Vees first period shots, with the ‘Backs firing 7 shots at Vees starter Brendan Barry. In the second period, 19-year-old Barriga got back on the scoreboard with a short-handed marker from Nick Hutchison at 7:29 after 18-year-old forward Jared Turcotte of Moorpark, California was penalized for hooking at 5:58. The visitors finally found the back of the net, as a pair of 19-year-old forwards connected. Easton Brodzinski beat Redmond at 14:03 from Seamus Donahue. But just 29 seconds later, Josh Blanchard restored the two goal lead. And Laframboise and

Hutchison each picked up their second assists of the game. Ross Heidt and Taro Hirose later connected and increased the lead to 4-1 at 18:41 of the second period. The Silverbacks outshot the Vees 16-12 in the middle period. The Vees made a goaltending change in the second intermission, as 20-year-old Anthony Brodeur relieved Barry who stopped 19 of 23 shots in the first 40 minutes. Penticton scored the only goal in the final frame with Hutchison penalized for roughing, Brodzinski potted his second of the night and on the power-play at 4:46. 18-year-old Owen Sillinger picked up the assist. The Vees outshot the Silverbacks 13-8 in the third, and Penticton finished ahead on the shot clock 35-31 overall. The ‘Backs power-play finished 1-for-4, while the PK was 6-for-7. The Silverbacks will be back in game action this weekend on Saturday night, September 19th at the Shaw Centre in Salmon Arm versus the Coquitlam Express in a 7:00 p.m. start. As well as, the ‘Backs will host the Chilliwack Chiefs on Sunday afternoon, September 20th beginning at 3:00 p.m.

By Faith Juell The Salmon Arm Horseshoe Club had nine members participate in the final competition of the year, the Interior North Championship. A total of 29 pitched in the Kamloops heat on Saturday, September 12th. Following the official opening and photographs, Happy Birthday was sung to two members, Al Bianco and Jim Mirchie. Al was the oldest member participating, at 89 years. Pitchers traveled from Quesnel, the Kootenays, and many points through the Okanagan. Al Bianco placed first, pitching with a mixed group. Al’s highest percentage of the day was 30%. Playing in a mix elders group, Faith Juell placed second. Playing in Mix D, Marlene Marshall was second and Clarence Juell was third. Edwin Krieg pitched to a first place finish in Elders C play. In Mix A, Matt Honkanen placed second following a playoff with Vivianne Fendle of Penticton. Vivianne also pitched the highest percentage of the day, 79% ringers. A special thank you goes to the Kamloops club for hosting the championships, and to Cindy and John for coordinating the competition. A very special thank you goes to the Kamloops ladies for a lovely brunch as well as treats throughout the day.

In the meantime, we continue to practice at 6:00 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Guests, visitors, and new members are always welcome to join in the play.

Since school has started, we are pleased to have students from Shuswap Middle School join us to learn the old sport of horseshoe pitching. When over 50 students arrive at once, the pits are the busiest we’ve seen them in years. Thank you to the extra school staff and horseshoe volunteers for helping out and keeping the pitching safe for all. For info on club activities, please call Faith at 250-832-9873 or Doug at 250-832-8520. Extra shoes are always available to use while practicing. Photo: Cindy Helgeson presents Al Bianco with a card.

Support quality, affordable childcare

We need your help! If you are a grandparent – or have friends who are grandparents – you probably know that finding quality, affordable child care is one of the biggest challenges facing today’s young families. Maybe you help take care of your grandchildren so that their parents can return to work. Or, maybe you help out financially because quality child care now costs more than post-secondary education. While we all want to do what we can, this is not the way to make sure that all of our grandchildren get the best possible

start in life. That’s why we developed the $10aDay Child Care Plan (www.10aDay.ca) - a concrete and doable solution to BC’s child care crisis. And, with a federal election just weeks away, that is why we are asking you to help us send the message that now is the time to real action on child care. Starting September 13 on “Grandparents’ Day,” we ask you to join seniors from across Canada in a week of action to Talk it Up for Child Care. Together, let’s use our voices to make sure that everyone

knows why quality, affordable child care is good for our grandchildren, families and communities. You can help by: • Adding your support to the $10aDay Child Care Plan at http://www.10aday.ca/add_ your_name • Asking candidates in your riding what they will do to solve the child care crisis • Voting for candidates that commit to real action on child care.

Mildew, bathtub rings, and glass cleaner

Dear Reena, We have lived in our lovely home for over thirty years. The one nagging problem that ceases to cause us irritation is the tile grouting in our ensuite shower area. We clearly have not tried everything or the black stuff (mildew) would not be present in the grouting. Any suggestions? Al Dear Al, Saturate paper towels with white vinegar and allow it to sit on the mildew area. Vinegar is acidic and it will serve to remove the layer of soap scum that makes it difficult for you to access the mildew underneath. If there is a lot of soap scum, allow the paper towels to sit for several hours. Another option (my personal favorite) is to apply dish soap onto pumice stone and scrub the grout back and forth. As a last resort, ventilate the room and scrub grout with a stiff brush and a solution of bleach and water (1 cup chlorine bleach to 5 cups hot water). Dear Reena, I would love to know what to use to remove a bathtub ring. Thanks Lorraine Dear Lorraine, Clean the bathtub on a regular basis. You probably will need to wash out the bathtub weekly or more often, depending on how many people use it. While wearing gloves, sprinkle a dampened green abrasive cloth with either baking soda or washing soda. Wet and scrub until the tub

is clean. Rinse and dry with a rag. For tough stains apply 3% hydrogen peroxide/baking soda or cream of tartar and 3% hydrogen peroxide. Put cream of tartar in a bowl and drip in hydrogen peroxide until you have a thick paste. Apply the paste to the stained area and let dry; scrub away the dried paste and watch the eyesore disappear. Dear Reena, I was wondering if you knew how to prevent further cracking (from dryness, I assume) on my beautiful, wooden dining room table? I polish it every week and then every two weeks I leave oil all over it, hoping it will absorb it and stop the cracking. We aren’t able to put a humidifier in our home, but do you have any other suggestions on how to save this table from destructive dryness? Thanks so much for your help! Kathleen Dear Kathleen, A wide array of products ranging from oils, waxes, and sprays are available for furniture care. However, contrary to popular belief wood does not need to be “fed.” The best way to care for furniture is simply to maintain a stable environment. No amount of oil or other materials will keep wood from drying out if the humidity level is too low. A good-quality paste wax designed for furniture can be used to add a protective layer to the wood finish and give it a soft shine. Paste wax protects the finish without penetrating the

wood and keeps dust from binding with the surface the way car wax makes water bead. Pick a wax that matches the color of the wood (for instance, a lighter wax for maple and a darker one for walnut). If the wood finish is cracked or rubbed away, skip the paste. Do this only once a year and apply the wax sparingly. Do not use spray polishes or lemon oils as they can leave the surface tacky, which attracts dust. Contrary to what the makers of spray-on furniture polishes claim, you don’t need fancy chemicals to clean and protect wood furniture, even if they are your prized possessions. In fact, those products can do more harm than good. According to one expert at the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, North Carolina, “Some sprays have additives that will never come off. They crosslink chemically over time and become insoluble. A lot never completely dry and they attract dirt, darkening the finish which can decrease the value.” Dear Reena, Not so long ago you published a household recipe for cleaning windows and glass. Unfortunately, I’ve misplaced the article. Would you be so kind as to let me know what the ingredients are as I have some glass tables and doors that I would like to try this on. Thank you so much. Carol Dear Carol, I have had a number of requests for this

By Reena Nerbas recipe; therefore, let me take this opportunity to reprint the recipe: Squeaky Clean Window Cleaner Recipe: In a spray bottle, combine 1 tsp. (5 mL) inexpensive shampoo or dish soap, one quarter cup (60 mL) rubbing alcohol and fill remaining portion of the bottle with white vinegar. Spray and wipe. (Taken from Household Solutions with Kitchen Secrets) Dear Reena, I am still trying to get hairspray off the bathroom walls and have had no luck using rubbing alcohol and water. I am wondering if you have another suggestion. The walls are painted with a top-ofthe-line latex acrylic paint. Regards, Judi Dear Judi, Since rubbing alcohol did not do the trick, your next step is clean the wall with shampoo diluted in warm water. Another wonderful option, apply shaving cream to the stained area. Leave for 5 minutes and scrub. Worst case scenario; gently rub the wall with fine sandpaper and repaint if necessary. I enjoy your questions and tips; keep them coming. Missed a column? Can’t remember a solution? Need a speaker for an upcoming event? Check out my brand new website reena.ca!

Won’t back down

In my last column “Pit bull propaganda is deadly” I described how canines bred for hundreds of years to be champion dog killers are not a safe family pet. I supported facts such as pit bulls kill and severely injure more humans and animals than all other breeds combined with links to comprehensive studies, essays and statistics from several reputable sources. I also made the prediction there’d be an onslaught of hostility over my ignorance and demands that I do my research. Within moments of the article being published there were countless online comments and emails stating exactly that. It was obvious many hadn’t even bothered to read what I wrote. I was inundated with the usual rhetoric: pit bulls get a bad rap; it’s all how you raise them; blame the deed not the breed; pit bulls are harmless wiggle butts; they were bred to be nanny dogs; it’s impossible to identify a pit bull; the media only reports pit bull attacks; poodles (or insert any other breed) bite more; you’re a dog racist; you’re a dog hater; all dogs bite; all dogs kill; cars kill more people; people kill more people; coconuts kill more people; and the list went on. The familiar myths were often written in the most aggressive language and tone imaginable, and not one person provided any evidence to dispute the thoroughly researched facts I presented. As vile as some of the messages were, they failed to surprise or intimidate me but that’s only because I’ve written on this topic before and I’ve learned what to expect from previous feedback, as well as from reading comments under pit bull

attack stories in the news. My first glimpse of this combative crowd came four years ago after a pit bull sunk his powerful jaws into the face of my friend’s eight-year-old son leaving a gaping wound in his cheek, requiring 40 stitches and scarring him for life. According to the pit bull apologists, the boy, who had simply pet his friend’s dog, must have provoked the attack. The pet’s owner was faulted as well. “There are no bad dogs, only bad owners,” was repeated incessantly. It’s one of their most popular mantras, but how do they explain all the tragedies caused by pit bulls raised from puppyhood by good, responsible owners who trained them to be safe family pets? People like Susan Iwicki believed this myth until her two pit bulls destroyed the precious life of her friend’s 14-month-old son who was in her care at the time. How could this have happened when she had done everything right? She’d neutered and spayed her pups as soon as they were old enough, she socialized them, gave them lots of love and attention, and her three-year-old dogs had never shown any signs of aggression before they suddenly assaulted her while she was holding Daxton on her hip. Without any provocation or warning their genetics kicked in and they attacked her and savaged him for 15 torturous minutes, leav-

ing him grotesquely disfigured and then dead. His parents were shattered beyond repair, and, like every victim of one of these horrendous attacks, they were blamed for it, as was the owner. But who was really at fault? Believing the myth that it’s all how you raise them is what killed the innocent toddler. Did the pit bull advocacy camp take any responsibility in that? Of course they didn’t. Like vultures, so many of their hardcore members preyed on the grieving mother and father with “I’m sorry for your loss, but it’s not the dog’s fault” type messages. When Jeff and Kimberly Borchardt failed to be silenced and continued to share their story, warning others not to believe the lies they’d believed, the depraved vitriol spewed at them was appalling. One sicko posted a picture of Daxton with the caption: “my dart board lmfao.” Another poorly written online post stated: “Let’s play kickball with jeff’s son head. He dead so not like he will need it.” An additional nutter tauntingly named his pit bull after the deceased little boy. Since their beautiful son’s horrific death in 2013, a large part of Jeff’s time has been committed to learning as much about canines as possible and sharing actual facts about the genetic and physical make up of

by Lori Welbourne pit bulls in the hopes no one will endure the unspeakable sorrows his family has. Tragically, the killing and severe attacks on children, adults and animals by pit bulls continues at a sickening rate. Despite the never ending stalking and harassment of the bereaved couple, their dedication to honour Daxton’s life by debunking the pit bull propaganda lives on. A multitude of attack victims and victim advocates have now joined them in their “won’t back down” movement. Their mission is simple: to educate the public about dangerous dogs, primarily the fighting and gripping breeds since they’re by far the biggest risk to human and animal safety. As stated in my last column, enforced breed-specific legislation (BSL) works. It prevents maiming and deaths, and that includes the deaths of a million unwanted pit bulls euthanized in U.S. shelters every year due to over breeding. No birth equals no kill, so let’s make sterilization mandatory, impose stronger dog regulations and finally end this escalating victimization and heartache for the protection of all.
