At 84, Clay Lank doesn’t give too many hoots about bylaws or regulations. What he does care passionately about is McGuire Lake Park. When Lank gets up in the morning and looks out the window of his apartment, McGuire Lake is what he sees. “I see one of the best views in all of Canada,” he says, happily surveying his domain. For several years, Lank has taken it upon himself to tidy up the park – gathering up cigarette butts and other garbage, recycling cans and – herein lies the trouble – clipping nuisance willow branches, trimming the tops off stumps, and pulling burdocks and thistles. He said he was first told he shouldn’t be cutting a willow branch a few years ago when Brad Ackerman, the city’s former parks supervisor, saw him with his little handsaw. However, he hasn’t been deterred. A former farrier, he detests the burdock plants with their large wavy leaves and big velcro-like thistles that would attach themselves mercilessly to horses’ manes and tails. So he’s been busy trying to rid the park of the burdocks. And a couple of other thistles, he says. He has also been pulling the grass poking up between the bricks on the memorial walkway. Late last week he had just cut off an 11-foot willow branch, about three-quarters of an inch in diameter, which he says was hanging over the sidewalk. He noticed city staff in a works truck across the street watching him. “They’ve been concerned about my little nippers, that I’m infringing on their territory or going to put them out of work,” Lank surmises. He was later given a municipal ticket by the bylaw officer. The description of the offence is “damage park or public lands” and the fine amount is $100. He was told he had been given a warning letter, but he hadn’t seen it. When he checked back

n Clay Lank has run into trouble in the form of a city bylaw by carrying out what he considers to be volunteer upkeep and maintenance of McGuire Lake Park. at the McGuire Lake Congregate Living Facility where he lives, sure enough, there was one. It had been hand-delivered on Sept. 4 and cites a section of Parks Regulation Bylaw #2119 which states, in part, that “No person shall deface, remove or otherwise damage any tree, shrub or other plant material growing in any park or public lands in the district...” The letter also says removing or damaging vegetation in contravention of the bylaw could result in a ticket, a fine and “may also result in you being escorted from the park.” Retorts Lank: “Picking up cigarette butts and garbage – if they want to come and assist me out of the park, they’re welcome to. This is still a free Canada – I hope.” Maurice Roy, the city’s manager of permits and licensing, says the situation isn’t quite as straightforward as it might sound. “He’s basically been asked to stop cutting vegetation down by the water’s edge. It’s kind of like a riparian zone so we don’t want him cutting

down there.” Roy says Lank has been asked several times by staff but doesn’t want to cooperate, so the city is having to take enforcement action. “The first step is to give him a ticket.” He said he realizes Lank is well-intentioned. “There’s no doubt he’s very civic minded, I agree with that. He just shouldn’t be cutting down by the water.” Roy said he met with Lank Wednesday morning and told him he would waive the ticket if Lank would agree to stop cutting. “He told me verbally this morning, he’s not going to stop cutting.” Roy says he will now have to confer with his supervisor, who is away until next week. Lank told the Market News he’s going to fight the ticket. “I’m doing it because I need the exercise, I enjoy the fresh air and it’s a beautiful place. And they say I’m damaging the thing? That’s what really bugs me.”

Fishing ban remains in place

Salmon Arm Bay: Rule designed to protect salmon. By Barb Brouwer

MARKET NEWS STAff

Fishing for any species is now prohibited in Salmon Arm Bay, at the confluence of the Salmon River and Shuswap Lake, due to conservation concerns and low flows. Federal Fisheries officers have been working with volunteers from the Shuswap Fish and Game Club to create a deep enough channel for chinook to make their way into the Salmon River. Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations senior fisheries biologist Steve Maricle says fisheries officials questioned anglers, who were fishing in a deep pool off the mouth of the river where the salmon congregate before heading upriver. The anglers said they were fishing for rainbow trout, but Maricle says the gear to fish for chinook is the same, so to give the salmon the best possible chance to get to their spawning grounds, FLNRO felt comfortable in closing all fishing in the bay. “We do not encourage fishing on a congregation, especially on a run that could be endangered,” he said. “We want to protect those fish.” The closure will go right to Dec. 31 in order to protect the coho stocks that will return to the Salmon River this fall. Maricle says discussions will

take place this winter on the possibility of making it a permanent closure every year from Sept. 1 to Dec. 31. “This has been an issue for a number of years and rather than doing a variance order every year, it might just be worth have a closure at this time of the year when the salmon are returning to spawn.” Meanwhile, disappointment is being replaced by cautious optimism that the chinook run will match the brood year escapement of four years ago. “It’s a stock of concern that’s nowhere near what the system capacity should be or could be,” says Stu Cartwright, acting area director of the federal Fisheries and Oceans Canada for the B.C. Interior. “It hasn’t been producing to historical numbers that we’ve seen over time.” But the chinooks are congregating at the fish fence at Gene Puetz’s Silver Creek property and fisheries officers are getting close to making the target of 25 pairs. “We’re optimistic we’ll get them for the Spius Creek hatchery to augment the natural chinook spawning,” Cartwright says. “We know the hatchery environment has a higher success rate and will help bring the numbers back up.” Cartwright is hoping more chinook will make it upriver on their own, after fisheries captures he 25 pairs. The picture is gloomy in the

North Shuswap, where sockeye returns are in the neighbourhood of only 20 per cent of their brood year. On Scotch Creek only about 6,100 late summer sockeye have arrived at the fence from a brood year high of 34,000 in 2011. “They continue to come in but it’s tapering off,” Cartwright said of the annual run. “Again, it’s preliminary, but it’s disappointing to see the low returns.” The late sockeye assessment team is just setting up on the Adams River now, but hopes for a large sub-dominant run are not high. “The forecast was for 1.236 million sockeye but now it’s looking like 200,000,” says Cartwright, adding the Pacific Salmon Commission is no longer conducting test fisheries off the coast. “We would normally see more than what we’re seeing. Maybe there’s some in the approach waters in Juan de Fuca and Johnstone Strait but they’re tailing off quickly.” Meanwhile, all recreational fishery on Shuswap River has closed, there is no salmon fishing in Shuswap Lake and no fishing at all in Salmon Arm Bay. Anglers can fish for chinook in Little Shuswap Lake – four fish per day, but only two can be over 50 centimetres. While water level remain low, but water temperatures have cooled off.

Attendance down, exhibitors up

Fall Fair: Volunteers thanked for their efforts.

is now taking orders for Thanksgiving

By Barb Brouwer

Fresh Unique flowers with European Flair

Numbers were down, but spirits are high. Ticket sales to the annual Salmon Arm Fair were down by about 800, but there were more than 326 new exhibitors. Star MacGregor, fair committee chair, said all the exhibitors, young or old, pay an exhibitor’s fee that gives them entry to the fair on all three days and those totals are kept separate from ticket revenue. “I was very pleased we had new exhibitors and pleased that families with two, four or more kids were exhibiting,” she says. “It’s wonderful to see younger people entering with their families, starting the tradition.” MacGregor was also thrilled with the numbers and dedication of the fair volunteers, which she says are countless, because each division has its own volunteers. “We probably had 75 people just on the gates but we can’t give a clear number,” she said. “We’re asking them (conveners) to give us a report of how many volunteer hours they have put in.” MacGregor heard many positive comments about the parade and Shooting Star Midway and said the worst incident at the fair was at the first aid stations where Band-Aids were handed out for blisters. She offered kudos to this year’s fair co-ordinator, Debbie Evans, who brought in some new family- friendly attractions such as a straw maze, gold panning and an opportunity for little folks to hold live chicks. “I’m one tired person with no voice,” croaked Evans, taking the phone from MacGregor. “I went around the grounds asking people what did they enjoy and what could we improve, and they couldn’t tell me anything (to improve).” Evans suspects Saturday numbers may have been down because of the heat and that many folks might have opted for the beach. Thursday, “The worst critic September of the fair right now24 is the person you’re talking to,” she said of her attempts to assess what worked and what didn’t. “I put my heart and soul into this and I should know what went well. I am as open as a* sponge.”

Doctor search still unsuccessful By Lachlan Labere

markEt nEws staff

The allure of the Lower Mainland is one factor keeping doctors from choosing to locate in rural communities like Sicamous – and Kelowna. District of Sicamous council recently received an update on the ongoing doctor hunt by Phil Martin of Global Medics Ltd. In March of this year, the district contracted Global Medics to seek out two doctors for the Sicamous Medical Clinic. Council budgeted $30,000 to cover Global Medics’ recruitment costs. While Global Medics is working with doctors seeking positions in B.C., Martin says most, if not all, are choosing to locate in Vancouver or on Vancouver Island. Doctors are concerned rural communities won’t have the job opportunities for spouses, or it’s a family decision where the partner and/or kids are not wanting “to be too rural.” Martin notes their definition of rural can include urban centres such as Kelowna. “I think it’s just a different understanding, but please know we’re doing all we can to educate them on the fantastic living, high quality of life

for

21

and beautiful surroundings when you live and work in some of the smaller communities in Canada,” writes Martin. Under its recruitment contract with the district, Global Medics will be paid $15,000 plus taxes per doctor, half of which is paid when one is found and the other, if and when they start work. If the doctor decides not to locate in Sicamous, the district’s money is reimbursed. To improve its odds of attracting doctors, the district has also agreed to make available the following “physician recruitment lifestyle incentives: year 1: $500/month; year 2: $300/month; year 3: $200/month. For transportation: year 1: $250/ month; year 2: $150/month: year 3: $100/month. Regarding Global Medics’ costs, Columbia Shuswap Regional District Area E director Rhona Martin has suggested funding could be provided through the CSRD Economic Opportunity Fund. “The CSRD and Rhona would be more than happy to support us on that…,” commented Mayor Terry Rysz. “Malakwa is just as concerned about us having doctors as Sicamous.”

Big changes in store for schools

The new school year is officially underway. Even if you don’t have kids in the education system, there is still this sense that summer fun is behind us and now we must get down to business. Roads are busier and so are everyone’s lives. Parents begin their everyday scramble of getting kids to and from school safely. For some young ones, this week marks their entry into the school system. For older ones, they are entering into middle or high school. Classrooms are clean and bright, with teachers and administrators rolling out the welcome mat. While education is always evolving – big changes are coming as to how teachers teach. The stereotypical model of educators standing in front of the classroom lecturing while students follow along from textbooks is transforming. Instead, classrooms will be interactive with teachers discovering individual student’s passions. Teachers will direct and fuel those interests on a new learning path. It’s welcome change for students who don’t thrive in the traditional classroom setting. If teachers can tap into what individual students get excited about, the potential to unlock their brains from boredom and turn that into drive and passion is exciting news. The school district is already preparing for the changes and teachers are adapting their teaching style to this new way of reaching students. There are no two students alike. Some children thrive on tests and report deadlines – others crash and burn. Change is hard for all, but this is a directive coming from the government that parents and students should support. Individual learning has the potential to unlock bright minds which can make for a bright future. Our future leaders and innovators are in our schools. – Black Press

OPINION

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

Fishing inspires philosophers Rene Descartes once decreed “I fish, therefore I am” or something to that effect, while Emmanuel Kant, although not really an avid angler, was certainly known to have raised a glass of ale or two with some of his contemporary Left Bank thinkers, writers and anglers of the day – including a young Ernest Hemingway. And, although it is a little known fact, Friedrich Nietzsche was a charter member of several fairly prestigious European fly fishing clubs. His name has subsequently been scratched from their records due to the fact that he was twice arrested and charged with poaching. Having been able to avoid actual incarceration by declaring in front of the judge that he had not been fishing for the sole purpose of catching fish, but rather because the need to experience catching fish is, in essence, the very heart, soul and lifeblood of the human condition. Even Jean Paul Sartre, who apparently had a reputation for being somewhat contemptuous of elitist an-

THE GREAT OUTDOORS James Murray glers and their fly fishing fraternities, was seen, more than once, rowing a rather dillapidated old lapstrake dory while trolling a line with a glob of worms on the end of it. Yes, it would seem that many modern-day philosophers, writers and contemporary thinkers have been anglers - with the existentialist seeming to be inclined towards dry fly fishing and pragmatists leaning towards the old worm and bobber. If I am not mistaken, it was while fishing a small mountain stream that Marx came up with the notion that in a truly classless society, everyone should have equal opportunity to fish the

best fishing holes on all the streams with the best reputations. He apparently had always felt a deep resentment of the fact that the rich always seemed to have better gear and only they had access to private waters. (I am not altogether certain as to whether it was Karl or Groucho that came up with this particular philosophy.) I guess my whole point is that there is a certain philosophical bent to the whole idea of simply sitting out in a boat or standing on the banks of a stream somewhere, observing all the wonders of nature around you and pondering just where any of us fits in the whole of time, eternity and the cosmos. All I know for sure is that I feel content when I am casting a line to trout swimming through the runs and riffles of my favorite stream. I may not know where I fit into the whole of the universe, but I know that I am at peace with myself when I am standing on the banks of a river or sitting out in a boat watching the early morning mist rise from the surface of

the water. I also know that for a brief moments when I feel a tug on the end of my line, that I am alive and all that matters is the next few minutes of time. Having said that, I don’t really have much of a philosophy when it comes to other things. Advocating any given philosophy only seems to complicate things. I did, however, spend a very nice afternoon recently sitting out in the boat with a friend discussing the literary works of such well-known anglers as the French writer and fly fisherman Albert Camus, ’60s poet Richard Brautigan, who wrote Trout Fishing in America, and Noam Chomsky, whose philosophical perspectives on contemporary issues include both anti-establishmentarianism and, catch and release. We whiled away several hours talking while the fish weren’t biting, and as I recall, at the end of the day we concluded that Nietzsche was right … fishing is, indeed, the heart and soul and lifeblood of the human condition.

A story of the Splatsin ShuSwAp pASSion Jim Cooperman Adjacent to the city of Enderby is the main reserve for the Splatsin Band, the most southern community of the Secwepemc Nation. Because of the distance from Kamloops, early ethnographers spent little time here and thus, there is lack of written information about the Splatsin, who officially changed their name from the Anglicized version, Spallumcheen, in 2014. Most of the information available now about their past comes from oral histories passed down over many generations. The origin of their name comes from the late elder, Cindy Williams who explained that Splatsin, which is pronounced ‘splajeen,’ means riverbanks, which is where they lived along both the banks of the Eagle, Salmon and Shuswap rivers. Their traditional territory was huge, extending from Mica Creek to the north to Kettle Falls, Washington to the south and from Monte Lake to the west and Nelson to the east. Their primary village sites were at Sekmas, from Old Town Bay to Sicamous and Splatsin (Enderby) where the majority of the popula-

tion lives today. There were other major villages at Mara Lake, Mabel Lake and other locations that provided good fishing opportunities. When Europeans first began to arrive in the U.S., the Okanagan people were pushed north, eventually spilling into Secwepemc territory. Today, the large Okanagan Nation Reserve Number 1 extends into the Salmon River watershed and shares a border with Splatsin Reserve Number 2. While the Splatsin share many similarities to other Secwepemc nation bands, there are also many differences. They speak an eastern dialect with many Secwepemc words pronounced differently. While the western tribes traded furs often, the Splatsin, because of their distance from the fort in Kamloops were less likely to have contact with the early fur traders. There are accounts that they did trade at trading posts at Eagle Pass Landing and near Vernon. The Splatsin were warriors and fought many battles with other tribes to protect their borders. They also sought peace and, in the end, shared key fishing areas such as Shuswap Falls near Lumby, where they controlled the fishing to the north. The Okanagan people were able to fish above the falls when salmon could still move upstream, prior to the construction of the dam. In addition to fishing, the Splatsin were great hunters and they had

a tradition of seasonal rounds that included plant and berry gathering. Deer, elk and caribou were hunted in the hills throughout the territory and the meat was dried in their camps before the hunters returned to their villages. Along with their reputation as fierce fighters, the Splatsin were known to be reclusive and often hid when the Europeans entered their territory. However, the early settlers soon became dependent on the Splatsin for their labour. After the first sawmill was built in Enderby, the Splatsin became known as the premier log drivers on the river.

in recent years, the Splatsin have made some impressive improvements, including the construction of a massive community centre... Initially in 1871, the Splatsin were only provided 200 acres of land for their reserve, which was most unfair given that white settlers could pre-empt 160 acres. Under the threat of war, the government enlarged many interior reserves in 1887 and the Splatsin allotment was increased to over 9,000 acres, including reserves at the Salmon River and Sicamous. However, despite strong opposition, the McKenna-McBride Commission reduced

It’s Go Time!

the size of the Sicamous reserve in 1913. In recent years, the Splatsin have made some impressive improvements to their reserve, including the construction of a massive community centre built to resemble a kekuli pit house and a new, carved log-framed gas station and convenience store with meeting rooms. They are also promoting a cultural renaissance, with an emphasis on teaching their language and traditions to the new generation. Their development corporation, which includes sustainable forest management, environmental services and construction, is growing quickly. As well, the Splatsin deserve much appreciation for working closely with the Shuswap Trail Alliance and local governments to convert the abandoned railway line along Mara Lake and the Shuswap River to a world-class hiking and biking trail.

South Shuswap First Responders’ coffers are $1,117 richer thanks to donations received at Shuswap Marina’s sixth annual open house on Aug. 8. General manager Gareth Seys says the family businss that has been in operation since 1988, holds the open house to gain more visibility in the community and give back in a worthwhile way. Funds raised last year went to the Royal Canadian Marine

Search and Rescue boat “We do the open house to get people through the door, hassle all our suppliers for prizes and have a bigsale,” he says. Customers are asked to make a donation in exchange for a hotdogs and balloons. “This was our busiest ever,” says Seys. “We started handing them out at 11 and gave away 300 hotdogs before noon.” First responders helped out and took the opportunity to let both locals and tourists know what they do.

Join us for a presentation by Kate Mancer, author of “The Future of Seniors Housing,” and a discussion on options for development in the South Shuswap.

Volunteers help get new roof for hall

Work has begun on the new roof of historic Notch Hill Hall and promises to make the premises look smarter and newer, yet still in keeping with character of Notch Hill. “This is all possible because of the hard work of many, many volunteers past and present, sponsors, professionals, local tradespeople, politicians, and residents of Sorrento, Notch Hill and nearby communities,” says an appreciative Jill Goward, who offers sincere thanks for the contributions and efforts. In the meantime, there are still events planned, including the Trade Show on Saturday, Oct. 3 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Goward says it will be a full house with many interesting products on display. Admission is free. On Sunday, Oct. 4, the hall will host the Community Harvest Pot Luck Dinner at 5 p.m. “Once again, you are invited to bring along your favourite casserole, salad, dessert or other baked goodies to share with your neighbours and friends,” says Goward, noting the dinner is a great opportunity for folks that are new to the area to get to know people of all ages. “If anyone has any suggestions on how organizers can entertain, accommodate and raise funds for the continuance of this great property that has been entrusted to our care, the association would be happy to hear them,” she says. Goward says hall members hope to have great attendance at the various events held in the hall. “And, we look hope that includes more of the former trustees too,” she adds.

n Conservative candidate Mel Arnold answers a question at the Vernon allcandidates forum, while Liberal candidate Cindy Derkaz awaits her turn to speak.

PHARMACY

RiChARd RoLKE/BLACK PRESS

Candidates square off at first forum By Richard Rolke BLACK PRESS

Their first head-to-head encounter saw North OkanaganShuswap’s federal candidates under fire from a capacity crowd. About 500 people packed the Vernon Performing Arts Centre Society’s debate Monday to hear about a variety of issues, including First Nations. “Much is at stake for indigenous people,” said Jacqui Gingras, NDP candidate, adding that an NDP government would initiate an inquiry into murdered and missing native women within 100 days of taking office. Liberal Cindy Derkaz told the audience that her party would adopt the Truth and Reconciliation recommendations and also hold an inquiry into the missing and murdered women. Conservative Mel Arnold defended the government, by saying funding for aboriginal health care and education has increased. “These people (missing/murdered women) are people and they matter but we can’t solve it with another inquiry. We need to solve it with action on the ground.” Chris George, with the Green Party, went one step further and

stated that First Nations did not give up their rights to the land. “Get rid of the Indian Act,” he said. “We’d like to start a nation to nation discussion based on respect.” Candidates were also asked about the controversial anti-terrorism legislation, Bill C-51. “We passed it to protect Canadians. This bill does not put any new tools into the hands of security forces,” said Arnold. Derkaz says the Liberal caucus pushed for some changes to the act before it was approved. “A Liberal government is committed to repealing and amending onerous sections of the act that got it wrong. There needs to be government oversight and a sunset clause.” According to George, sections of the act concern him, including people being held in detention with no charges and secret trials. “This isn’t Canada, we don’t need this legislation.” Gingras describes Bill C-51 as an affront to the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. “Aboriginal people standing on the front lines protecting the environment are not terrorists.” Candidates were also asked about support systems for veter-

ans and the high rate of suicide among soldiers. “Our government has been working to help veterans with the support they need. We don’t want to leave any stone unturned,” said Arnold, adding that the average funding spent on a veteran has increased 35 per cent under the Conservatives. Derkaz says the Liberals would reopen veterans’ offices across the country. “We will re-establish lifelong pensions for injured veterans. There will be a new veteran education benefit.” George joined the call for fully funded programs, but he says Canada needs to reconsider the missions members of the military are involved in. “We need to stop sending them into harm’s way except for in defence of this country.” Gingras wants home support for veterans. “We need to support the families and caregivers and that there are resources in an integrated fashion.” -The All-Candidates Forum hosted by the Salmon Arm Chamber of Commerce took place Thursday night, after the Market News press deadline.

Regret for tree removal expressed By Martha Wickett

MARKET NEWS STAff

City council weighed concerns of neighbours and the wishes of property owners in making servicing and setback decisions on what was described by councillors as a beautiful property and the envy of many in Salmon Arm. High above the town and lake at the corner of 20 Avenue SE and 10th Street SE, the parcel is set to become, in three phases, a 34-lot single family residential subdivision. The owners, listed as E. and M. Byers and a B.C. numbered company, and represented

by agent Jayme Franklin of Franklin Engineering Ltd., were requesting three variances from council. They were granted two of three. One was to reduce the width of a panhandle portion of a proposed lot from 20 to 10 metres, and the second to waive the requirement to connect two proposed catch basins on 20th Avenue SE to the city storm sewer system. Staff reported two similar catch basins with rock pits exist to the east on the same street. Council did not approve a request to reduce the minimum road width of the extension of

17th Avenue SE from 20 to 18 metres. In supporting the variance, Coun. Tim Lavery referred to the catch basins for stormwater, saying local governments everywhere are looking for greener options like them. He made one comment not related to the variance, but said he would like to take the opportunity. “The clear cutting on that lot was unacceptable to me,” he said, noting it was a clarion call to him that the city needs to upgrade its tree bylaw. “Trees are valuable to residents and to communities. It’s not in front of us now, but

that’s my public opportunity to say this.” Later in the discussion, Coun. Alan Harrison also mentioned the trees. He referred to his colleague’s comments, but said: “I understand there’s two sides to that.” He noted that putting in servicing can be difficult around trees. Coun. Louise Wallace Richmond thanked neighbours for their input and noted they had raised concerns about erosion related to tree removal. She also thanked the engineers and owners for bringing forward the realities of hillside development.

Salmon Arm: The 35th annual run set for Sept. 20 at Blackburn Park. MARKET NEWS STAff

When he was 16, Jared Huumonen lost his leg to the same kind of cancer that claimed the life of Canadian hero Terry Fox. Little did he know that years later, Huumonen would be asked to portray Fox during a Heritage Minute television clip. Jared, whose parents, Shirley and Tapio live in Sicamous, will be featured in the oneminute clip which will be running on various networks in tribute to the 35th anniversary of Terry’s remarkable journey across Canada. The clips began airing Tuesday, Sept 15 on Bell Media channels, including CTV, Much, MTV, TSN and Comedy. Then other broadcasters will start airing it, including CBC, the History channel and Shaw networks in Victoria and Vancouver. Huumonen was recruited to play Terry Fox through the company which makes his prosthetic leg. The production company, Historica Canada, was looking for someone who might be suitable and although, at 37, Huumonen is older

as a hero, especially after surviving the same type of cancer, osteogenic sarcoma. “We were two years with Jared at Children’s Hospital and in Ronald McDonald House with treatments. We were very lucky Jared’s cancer did not spread like Terry’s did.” With her voice wavering, Shirley spoke of how proud it was for her family to see Jared out running as Terry. “What Terry did, and is still doing to help those fighting cancer. To see Jared out there…” she says. “It still just chokes me up every time.” While there is not a Terry Fox Run in Sicamous, Shirley says she hopes to get one started as soon as next year. And she will make sure Jared attends. She is also anxious for people to support the Terry Fox Run in Salmon Arm, which takes place at Blackburn Park on Sunday, Sept. 20. at 10 a.m. There will be two-, four- and 10-kilometre distances. To register, visit www.terryfox.org and registrations will also be taken in advance of the run. Registration will open at 8:30 a.m.

than Terry Fox, his height and build is similar. With the addition of a curly wig, some short-shorts and a specially made prosthetic leg designed to look like the one Terry Fox wore, Huumonen was nearly ready to film. First, Hummonen needed some hair bleach for his arms and legs, as his dark hair was not compatible with Terry’s. Then, he needed special lessons in learning to run like Terry Fox. “This was a challenge, because prosthetics have come so far since then. Jared now has what we call a super-bionic leg that he would use for running, but back then things were much more cumbersome, resulting in that distinctive gait Terry had. And they studied a lot of films and he worked a lot on a track to get they way Terry held his arms just right,” says Huumonen’s mother Shirley. “Jared told me the worst part was wearing the wig because it was so hot as he was running.” But Shirley says being asked to play Terry Fox was such an honour for Jared, who always looked to Terry

The invasion of the stink bugs GAIA GARDENING Margo Westaway

Isn’t early fall a great time of year? The air is still warm and the lakes are still swimable for the tougher types. We get to enjoy the beautiful colours of leaves against clear blue skies, to eat the last of the fresh fruit and vegetables of the season and celebrate it all at the fun fall fairs. We also get a whole lot of creepy-crawly company coming in to our homes, whether we like it or not! Yep, the ubiquitous stink bugs are once again on the move to herald in the coming of colder weather by plastering our roofs, walls and windows in the hopes of stealthily slipping into our abodes to blissfully burrow in to every available cozy crack and crevice we can offer them, including our folded clothes and between our bed sheets and pillows – yuck! Even worse, those icky insects seem to have an amazing sense of timing too,

because just as you’re settled in for a movie or about to chow down on a delicious dinner, you’ll hear that ‘buzzthwack’ of one landing close by or the dreadful drone of another coming straight at you or spinning dizzily under your overhead light where you’re trying to read in that butt-down spastic style of flying! So what’s with these unpleasant and unwelcome houseguests anyway? Like a lot of critters and plants we have nowadays, this ‘Halyomorpha halys’ or brown marmorated stink bug, hitched a ride from their Asian origins of China, Japan and Taiwan to the U.S. and was discovered in eastern Pennsylvania around ’98 and have now spread throughout many of the states and parts of Canada. They come in a number of varieties, tend to be either green or brown and females typically lay one to three batches of 20 to 30 eggs (depending on the climate) a year that hatch four to five days later from the underside of the host plant in the summer. This means that they’re not busy making baby bugs in our houses during winter, which is a relief, and they only sleep and don’t eat until they exit again in the springtime.

Bugging us is bad enough, but they’ve unfortunately become a very bad bug for farmers, who can go bust by losing millions of dollars annually to those things treating themselves to their crops. Their tactic to survive and thrive is to pierce the parts of plants such as the stems, leaves and roots of 80 or so different species – fruits, veggies, soybeans, corn and ornamentals – with a long proboscis that enables them to suck out the juices, resulting in a dimpled or necrotic area on the outer surface.

However, the little Houdinis never seem to fail to find their way in anyway, leaving us few options to discard or dispatch them without reeking the place up. This not only makes the product unsightly and unfit for sale, but pathogens can be transferred from one plant to another, just like mosquitoes do with blood. There are some omnivorous-type species though, that are considered the good guys to farmers, because they predate on other agricultural pests such as caterpillars, beetles and

even their fellow planteating stinky cousins. However, they’re now becoming resistant to insecticidal sprays, so the ‘bug brains’ are conducting research on other control possibilities, such as using ‘trap’ crops that are planted near the cash crops in the hope that it will attract the insects away from the ones that pay. Let’s hope that works, because it would be a whole lot friendlier to the environment and other critters. Thankfully they tend not to bite, but their foul chemical spray that’s used as a defence mechanism can make the job for harvesters unpleasant and even risky because it can sometimes cause some serious allergic reactions and skin problems. Prevention of invasion is key for us folks by keeping our doors and windows shut and scouting the house from attic to basement to plug up any possible entry points such as vents, tears in the window screens and cracks in the walls. You can also move stuff away from the outside walls such as firewood, where they like to hide out until they can get in. However, the little Houdinis never seem to fail to find their way in

anyway, leaving us few options to discard or dispatch them without reeking the place up. So until the ‘bug brains’ can find a way to make them go away, I guess we’ll just have to do our best to keep the beastie bugs at bay and learn to live with those creepy crawlers until the spring migration starts the whole icky thing all over again.

Profile: Mel Arnold looks to carry on the Tory tradition in this riding. By Martha Wickett

MARKET NEWS STAff

Serious and hardworking are two words Mel Arnold uses to describe himself. Raised on a dairy farm in Notch Hill, Arnold learned the work ethic early. It’s an attribute that served him well in business, as it led to his first job when one of his teachers hired him for boat building. That’s a line of work that stuck. Arnold, who is running under the Conservative banner in the federal North Okanagan Shuswap riding, has operated his Complete Marine Detailing business for 26 years. “I built that from the ground up – I’m not so much hands on any more. Through that I’ve learned the importance of balanced budgets and planning ahead for possible hard times.” Arnold and his high school sweetheart Linda have been married for 36 years. Personality-wise, Arnold describes himself as “a listener, very much approachable. Serious. More on the serious side than on the fun-loving side.” Arnold’s background includes volunteering, with two terms as president of the BC Wildlife Federation and six years as chair of governance with the Canadian Wildlife Federation. Asked about his passions, the outdoors tops the list. “I like to enjoy the outdoors any time I can.

Hunting and fishing are my favourite passions but anytime I can be outdoors. And, oddly enough, governance is a passion. That’s why I was chair with the Canadian Wildlife Federation…,” he said. Asked if he has trouble reconciling his love of the outdoors with the Conservative government’s much-criticized performance on the environment, he says: “My past roles have been as a conservationist, not a preservationist. I believe in the wise use of resources. The Conservatives have been very supportive of environmental issues. In fact last year, there was $252 million for the conservation plan. That will go towards protecting sensitive areas and programs aimed at conservation of natural resources.” As for international criticism of Canada’s position regarding climate change and the Kyoto Accord, he says: “The agreement may have been over-ambitious in light that Canada produces only two per cent of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions. It’s very difficult to reduce those emissions when they’re already at a low level.” Another issue the prime minister has received ongoing criticism about has revolved around muzzling dissent, as well as potential assaults on privacy such as Bill C51. “Most of the powers in that bill existed already,” says Arnold. “The change is, it will

GET ACTIVE!

Swimming more than just a recreational activity Many people view swimming as a purely recreational activity, but the health benefits of swimming should not be overlooked. Swimming is a great way to get fit, providing great cardiovascular exercise that’s easy on the joints. Swimming engages a variety of muscle groups, making it a great way to get a complete workout. The following are some additional benefits of including swimming as part of your exercise regimen. • When swimming, muscles are worked hard, which can help build strength. Much of that work can be traced to the fact that water is far more resistant than air, forcing a body in water to work harder to move than it would if it were walking on solid ground. • Water buoyancy can enable people to do exercises that would be jarring on land. In water, roughly 90 percent of the body is buoyant. That means working out in the water will put less

strain on the knees and hips when it comes to performing high-impact jumping exercises.

• Swimming is a great cardiovascular workout. Swimming can elevate the heart rate to an optimal level and work the lungs, too. Pushing oneself harder and harder can help to burn calories and lead to weight loss. • Just about every muscle is used when a body is swimming. Swimming targets the shoulders, back, arms, legs, hips, and gluteals without requiring complicated workout equipment. • Swimming may help improve coordination, balance and posture. Swimming also may promote greater flexibility by stretching the body through fluid movements. While swimming is often considered a relaxing activity tailor-made for warm summer days, it also provides a complete and demanding workout that can benefit the body in a variety of ways.

Joy for the Jays

n Erica Dymond, a Rogers Sportsnet Fan scout, and a cameraman cheer for the Toronto Blue Jays with members of the local 4-H Clubs, who were working at the fair’s food booth. The impromptu stop was part of the network’s 22 Days of Blue Jays feature, which has sent fan scouts east and west in search of the most loyal Blue Jays fans. The 22 days refers to the celebration of the final 22 days of the Blue Jays regular season schedule.

Changes made to open burning ban There will likely be smoke high in the hills of the Salmon Arm Fire Zone. The Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations has rescinded the current open burning ban in areas above 1,200 metres. But the open burning prohibition will remain in place until Oct. 1 for all other elevations in the Salmon Arm Fire Zone. Campfires that are a half-metre high by a half-metre wide (or smaller) and cooking stoves that use gas, propane or briquettes are permitted. But an open fire prohibition remains in place for: • The burning of any waste, slash or other materials. • The burning of stubble or grass. • The use of fireworks, sky lanterns or burning barrels of any size or description. This prohibition covers all B.C. parks, Crown lands and private lands, but it does not apply within the boundaries of a local government that has forest fire prevention bylaws in place and is serviced by a fire department.

But fire chief Brad Shirley says the City of Salmon Arm will follow the lead of the BC Wildfire Branch, allow-

ing only small campfires. For information about open burning and tips on making responsible burning de-

cisions, download an open burning guide at: http://bcwildfire.ca/ hprScripts/WildfireNews/Bans.asp.

CHASE

‘Old’ Chiefs, Heat to meet By Scott Koch

MARKET NEWS STAFF

As some wise old person may have said, ‘betting big money on early season results is a crazy thing to do,’ yet, at the same, opening weekend gives hockey fans something to cheer about. The Chase Heat opened the KIJHL regular season at the Art Holding Memorial Arena on Friday, Sept. 11, by hosting the Creston Valley Thundercats. In front of 252 fans, the teams played an entertaining contest with some small patches of early season rust as line chemistry was worked on. After a scoreless 1st, Chase opened scoring in the 2nd with veteran Hayden Orten doing the damage assisted by newcomers Ethan Buck and Nolan Parr. Creston shook off the bus legs and fired three in a row past Daniel Toews in net for the Heat. Early in the 3rd, it was three veterans – Tommy Brown potting the black disk, assisted by Kolten Moore and Travis Beaubien. Stellar performances by both

On Saturday the 12th, the Heat travelled to the South Cariboo to face arch rivals, the 100 Mile House Wranglers, who were big, aggressive and determined to hit anything that moved. In the 1st, Moore scored assisted by Logan Mostat to deflate the cowboys and cowgirls in the stands. In the 2nd the Wranglers got a pair and then veteran Alexander Durbeniuk was packed off the ice after a needless and

classless hitting-frombehind incident. Chase took advantage of the resulting five-minute major penalty by scoring a pair of power-play markers. Mostat from Okino and Spencer Farstad and then Mostat again from Braden Hughes and Kyle Riley. With one second left, 100 Mile tied things up on the power play. Then to overtime and the fans all cinched up their seat belts just a little tighter – 1st overtime nothing, 2nd overtime and Moore gets his second of the game from Brown and Okino, ending in a 4-3 over-

time victory with Nic Bruyere stopping 31 of 34 for the win. Chase fired 35 at the Wrangler tender. Next up is a home and home series versus the Kelowna Chiefs. Friday the 18th Chase is in Rutland and Saturday the 19th at 7 p.m. they host the Chiefs. The 19th at 3 p.m. will see the inaugural alumni game between the ‘old’ Chase Chiefs and the slightly less old Chase Heat. Admission is by donation with Chase Minor Hockey the beneficiary.

Thief takes over Facebook account On Sept. 6, a visitor to Shuswap Lake Provincial Park had his cell phone taken after he inadvertently left it in a public washroom. The phone was a One Plus One, model: A0001, black. The person who took the phone then accessed the victim’s Facebook account, and changed the password. Anyone with knowledge of this theft is asked to call the Chase Detachment at 250-6793221 or Crimestoppers.

Stolen plates

On Sept. 7, Chase RCMP received a report of stolen licence plates from a 2000 blue Volkswagen Golf in the North Shuswap. The plate number is 313LTH (B.C.). Call Chase Detachment at 250-679-3221 or Crimestoppers with information.

Blower walks off

On Sept. 4, Village of Chase maintenance workers were conducting operations in the park downtown on Shuswap Avenue, when a thief walked up to their pickup truck and stole a leaf-blower. Patrols were made in the area by Chase RCMP and the investigation

RCMP R E P O RT is continuing. Anyone with information about this crime is asked to call Chase Detachment at 250-679-3221 or Crimestoppers.

Multiple lawnmower thief

On the evening of Sept. 8, someone entered the yard of a local hardware and building centre, cut a security cable and stole five lawnmowers that were on display outside. Chase RCMP are continuing their investigation and request that anyone with information concerning this theft call Chase Detachment at 250-679-3221 or Crimestoppers.

Man charged with weapon offence

On Sept. 7, Chase RCMP responded to a distraught man who had told police dispatch that he planned to hurt his friend and then hurt police upon their attendance. The inebriated man was found by police

walking on the road near his residence, carrying a large knife in his waistband. He was arrested, held overnight at Chase Detachment and transported to Kamloops Law Courts. The suspect was charged with uttering threats and possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose. He was released by the court on numerous conditions.

Breaking ‘substitute vehicle’ rules

On Sept. 8, Chase RCMP located a blue 1990 Toyota pickup parked on Highway 1, near Chase. No licence plates were affixed to the truck; however, the registered owner was contacted. He stated the truck had just been sold, and police located the new owner, who stated he was using the plates from his previous vehicle. Unfortunately, report police, the plates were not on the newly purchased vehicle, and

no transfer/tax documents had been completed. Thus, the new owner had been driving without insurance and the vehicle was towed. Chase RCMP remind vehicle owners that the use of licence plates on a ‘substitute vehicle’ can only be done in accordance with strict regulations established by the Motor Vehicle Branch and ICBC, which are stated on the back of the Transfer/ Tax form (APV9T).

Thief app

On Sept. 5 about 10 a.m., Chase RCMP were dispatched to a report of theft from a vehicle at Roderick Haig Brown Park in Lee Creek. The complainant stated he was pursuing a black Honda Civic with Manitoba plates after the driver, an older man, allegedly smashed a window and stole the complainant’s wife’s purse from his Toyota Tundra. The suspect Honda left the area headed eastbound, and the complainant returned to the park to speak to the police officer. While there, the officer received two more complaints of break-ins and purse thefts from

vehicles at the park. One of the purses contained a cell phone with a locator app so it was activated. Sicamous officers found the vehicle in Canoe and the driver was arrested at the scene. Further checks showed that the Honda Civic was also stolen. Charged with four theft offences, flight from police and driving while prohibited was a 57-year-old Kamloops man.

Couple to court

On Sept. 9 about 9:45 p.m., a Chase RCMP officer conducted a traffic stop of a Dodge Grand Caravan on Brooke Drive in Chase. The vehicle showed expired licence plates, and a check of the male driver and female passenger resulted in the driver being arrested on an outstanding warrant for possession of breakin instruments. He was issued tickets for no insurance and no driver’s licence, held in custody overnight, and transported to Kamloops Law Courts the next day. The female was arrested on an outstanding warrant and released at the scene on a promise to appear in court at a future date.

Pot on stove suspected as cause of residential fire The Chase Fire Department received a call just before 8:30 p.m. Tuesday regarding a residential fire at 1250 Hillside Ave.

Upon arrival there were flames showing, coming out of the kitchen and side windows. Crews were able to contain the fire

quickly but there was smoke and fire damage. The cause is believed to have been a pot being used for deep-frying which became too

hot and caught fire. The resident was not able to put out the fire as it was spreading so quickly but managed to flee the residence safe-

I N P CHATTER at Village Lanes Fun Centre by Calyn Buresh

Well, the first week of leagues have come to a close at Village Lanes! A big thanks to all of our awesome bowlers who made the first week such a breeze! In adult league news, a Happy Birthday Shoutout being sent to one of our newest bowlers, Derek Vigue! Derek threw the men’s high single of the week with a 305! Bill Pacholok, a new Chase bowler, but a long-time friend, threw the high triple of the week with a 756, welcome to Chase, Billy! The ladies weren’t quite up to the men’s caliber this week (we’ll get you guys next week!) but a big congrats going out to Barb Lawrance for throwing the ladies high game with a 291! Way to show us gals how it’s done Barb. I’m coming for you next week. In the Club 55+ world, Jim Dunn had a massive first week! Throwing a 300 game, and totalling a 772! Charmaine Mierau proved to be one of the best, averaging a whopping 245. Now to maintain it Char! Not a problem, right!? And finally, YOUTH NEWS! Youth Leagues have started up, and my right hand gal (and this year’s Youth Coordinator), Ali Maki, is urging parents to get your kids into a bowling league! MY NOTE TO ALL KIDS: Yes, bowling is considered a “geeky” sport, or at least it was when I was a kid….but that’s the new thing, right? Hipster, nerdy? Just do it. I promise you, it’s nowhere near as lame as everyone makes it sound. You will make friends from across the province, and maybe even across the country. Grab your 3 BFF’s, come up with a killer team name, and join. Simple as that! That’s all the Pin Chatter I’ve got for this week! Until next time! Calyn, OUT!

Teens and back-to-school stress MenTal HealTH Dr. David Smith

As the new school year begins, children and teens will feel more stress and pressure. A certain amount of stress in our lives is normal and helps drive achievement. In fact, learning how to cope with stress and deal effectively with the demands of life are important skills that teens and young adults must develop to have happier, healthier, more productive and resilient adulthoods. Kids have always experienced stress. In my practice, however, kids seem more stressed than ever — by academic demands, by parental pressure, by the constant social media presence in their social relationships, and by their own expectations of themselves and their fears for the future. The 2013 McCreary Adolescent Survey of 60,000 BC youth found that 83 per cent of all youth said they had been stressed in the last month. Girls are more likely than boys at every age to report extreme stress – feeling so stressed that it prevented them from functioning properly. When stress builds with no release, it can lead to anxiety, depression, and despair. As the school year starts, here are seven proven steps that you and your kids can take to better cope with stress this year. 1.) Have a family routine: The more reliable and regular the routine at your home, the more stable and in control your children will feel. Regular times for getting up, going to bed, doing homework, having dinner, doing chores, and engaging

in extracurricular activities all enable children to create a schedule for themselves and know what to expect. Numerous research studies have shown that regular sit down family dinners are associated with increased self-esteem and school success and lower rates of eating disorders, alcohol and substance use, and feelings of depression or thoughts of suicide. 2.) Limit and monitor screen time: Social and peer group issues for many youth cause greater stress than academic pressure. In previous generations home was a refuge from that social stress. Now social media amplifies that stress 24/7. Set limits for time spent online, and monitor what is happening with your youth online. Talk to your kids about how to be safe and how to conduct themselves with social media. 3.) Ensure enough sleep: Young children need at least 12 hours of sleep a night and teenagers at least nine or ten, but many are getting much less. Adequate sleep reduces stress and increases coping skills. Don’t let kids sleep with their cell phones or laptops as late night screen time, as well as texts and emails, prevents good quality sleep. Limit caffeinated drinks; make sure you model good sleep habits, too. 4.) Get regular exercise: One of the best ways to manage stress is to move. Recent studies have found that activity out-of doors, such as walking or running in nature, has great stress reduction power too. 5.) Don’t over schedule: A certain amount of extracurricular activity is good for kids — it teaches them new skills, creates new friends, gives them exercise. But so many young people have so much on their plate they become overwhelmed and ex-

hausted. Give them unscheduled downtime, too. 6.) Engage in activities that provide personal value and meaning: Studies show that engaging in activities that help youth feel connected to the world and provide personal value and meaning are good for stress reduction. This can mean something different for everyone and can take the form of religious worship, nature walks, meditation, uplifting art, music, or books or any other spiritual connection that helps provide purpose and perspective to our lives. 7.) Learn some key stress-reduction

skills: Cognitive behavioural techniques (CBT) like relaxation breathing, visualization, mindfulness meditation, thought stopping, “chunking” big tasks into smaller, doable pieces and other skills can help manage stress. In the meantime, check out these BC links for helpful articles and tips on stress and youth: keltymentalhealth.ca; anxietybc. ca; healthlinkbc.ca; mindcheck.ca. The BC chapter of the Canadian Mental Health Association has information and an interactive stress test, see cmha.bc.ca/files/stress. htm.

The Collaborative involves multiple individuals, organizations and ministries all working together across BC to increase the number of children, youth, and their families receiving timely access to mental health services.

INFORMATION DESIGNED TO PROMOTE AND ENHANCE YOUR WELLBEING

“Boomeritis” takes toll on active Boomers (NC) Canadians are staying active longer than ever before with the goal of improving cardiovascular and psychological health. The bad news is this renewed vigor for exercise has come with a debilitating side effect: Boomeritis. A name health experts use to describe the parade of sore knees, back sprains, and other ailments associated with exerciserelated injuries suffered by baby boomers. The term was coined by Dr. Nicholas A. DiNubile, an orthopedic surgeon at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, in 1999. He remarked that there was an explosion of bone and joint aches, pains, injuries, and ailments as the Baby Boom generation began to turn 40 and 50. The changes that occur in our bodies as we age make us vulnerable to common exercise-related injuries. Here are some tips to help Boomers stay physical and maintain an active healthy lifestyle: • Start with proper warm up and balancing exercises. • Avoid running or weight training at first. • Focus more on lowimpact exercises such as stationary biking, step machines and elliptical trainers or low-impact aerobics. You can progress

to running and weight training later. • Incorporate crosstraining to relieve stress by not using the same muscles repeatedly. When faced with pain and inflammation it is important to combat it with an all-natural dietary supplement such as Reeliv5 that allows you to continue living your active life. Suzanne Tremblay, 65, of Laval, Quebec, can attest to its effectiveness. A once a formerly active tennis and cycling enthusiast she had to give up her activities due to the progression of her debilitating arthritis and osteoarthritis over the past 10 years. “My legs were swollen and my joints and back hurt so much I had to give up my cycling,” she said. “After trying Reeliv5 I found the effects were immediate and 24 hours later my pain had largely diminished and my swelling and blood circulation improved. I felt true relief and it gave me the urge to be active again.” Martin Lachaine, President of Quebec-based Nature’s Treasure which produces the natural supplement, explains the product is a mixture of powerful all natural active ingredients that reduces joint pain and inflammation, increases

mobility and flexibility, repairs cartilage damage and boosts tissue regeneration.” Lachaine, a former professional hockey player, developed the product to help remedy his own chronic pain from injuries suffered during his playing career. “I couldn’t find anything available that worked fast, was effective

At this time, Alan started to re-build the mill that he had once worked in as a child. It took a year to re-build the old mill. Alan started cutting ties for the Railroad which were in great demand at the time. He was also cutting cedar cants for a re-saw mill along with beams and timbers for many homes that where built in Sicamous and the area. Alan and Kim operated this mill for seven years. Over time, the orders kept increasing and the old mill could not keep up with the increase of large oversized timber and beams. In 1990, Kim’s father (Merv Siegrist) and mother Anne had moved to Sicamous to become a partner. Alan and Merv bought a new mill large enough to fill the orders of the beams and timbers that the old saw mill could not handle. The next generation has now joined the business. Alan and his son Tyler work the mill together making a great father/son team. Our team at Hyde Sawmill takes great pride in their workmanship and in supplying a superior product to customers.

She had never played with our guys before, but she slipped in like a real professional.” Already planning for next year’s annual competition, Risling says anyone who is interested in taking part in Shuswap Idol can send her an email at loririsling@hotmail.com.

Professionals and amateurs performed to receptive audiences at fall fair. The popular Shuswap Idol was won by Shelley Desautels, who received $500 and an hour-long vocal coaching session at In the Groove Studio. In second place was Lena Arkell, who took home $250 and a gift certificate from Dough Boyz, and third-place winner Elizabeth Joy received $125 and a Dough Boyz gift certificate. Honourable mentions and $50 were awarded to Carson Venne, Laura Close, Megan Abel and Megan Lauridsen. Organizer Lori Risling says Shuswap Idol contestants are scored up to 10 points on vocal ability and another five points each on stage presence and audience reaction for a total of 20 points. Judges for the threeday competition included Dave Byers, Sharon Fitzsimonds and Roxy Roth.

“Roxy was so impressed with how they (contestants) developed over the weekend,” said Risling. “Everybody just nailed it on Sunday.” Risling and husband Gil, who handles the technical side of the competition, will be back next year, even though running the contest involves a 12-hour drive from their Saskatchewan home. “We’re going to put the singer songwriter award back into the mix,” says Risling, noting this year’s competition was so much easier to organize, with 12 contestants in one category instead of 20. “I love doing it. I think giving them a chance to sing on a big stage and watching them grow is pretty rewarding.” Risling also arranges all the entertainment for the fair and says the list of performers has to be nailed down early for the fair schedule. That works if everyone remains healthy and available. But there were challenges this year.

Robert Babakaiff of Arro Wood Heat Services has been in business for 5 years. A 45-year resident of Salmon Arm, he believes in buying his products locally. After being laid off from Coe/Newnes, he saw there was a need for a reliable wood heat technician. He became certified in the WETT program – which is a Canadian recognized association, allowing him to be able to inspect, install and maintain wood burning stoves and fireplaces. His services include chimney sweeping, estimates and advice on purchasing and installation of wood burning stoves, such as size needed for the square footage, and the best stove to meet your needs. Robert’s motto “Burning Clean = More Green” not only refers to the money saved when keeping your stove or fireplace maintained, it also refers to the environment, as the new stoves burn cleaner and more efficiently. Repeat customers are spreading the word of his fair pricing and thorough job. For all your wood heat needs, call Robert today for an estimate.

Limited Compliance Actions Highlight Commitment to Professionalism The Vehicle Sales Authority (VSA) oversees the licensed motor dealer industry in British Columbia. The industry represents 430,000 transactions, or $10 billion in regulated vehicle sales, each year. Despite more than 1,300 consumer enquiries, nearly 800 dealer inspections and ongoing advertising monitoring, a typical 12 month period generates the following compliance activities: ❚ Voluntary acknowledgement and action by 15 to 20 dealers that errors were made during the representation and sale of vehicles, as documented in signed undertakings ❚ Up to five dealers facing hearings before the Registrar of Motor Dealers for allegations of deceptive business practices ❚ 500 consumer-initiated investigations, resulting in the return of $1 million to consumers ❚ And, as a result of licensing

reviews, three to five salesperson licences will be denied, one or two will be suspended and others will be issued with conditions based on prior conduct. Licensing and business practice decisions of the Registrar were also recently upheld by the BC Supreme Court, following applications for judicial review. The licensed vehicle sales industry in BC includes over 1,400 licensed RV, motorcycle and auto dealers that employ over 7,000 licensed salespeople. In the last 12 months, 1,600 new salespeople and 100 new dealers were certified and licensed. Consumer awareness activities, like the Watch out for Walt! campaign, are ongoing. Consumer information, complete compliance details and the 2015 VSA Annual Report, which includes a full summary of VSA activities for the last three years, can be found at vehiclesalesauthority.com.

CURBERS SELL VEHICLES THAT MAY BE UNSAFE OR STOLEN! Curbers are individuals and businesses selling vehicles for profit without a licence Curbers may get junk cars and sell them from parking lots while posing as private sellers. They advertise through local newspapers and online ads. They may not disclose the vehicle history to the buyer, hiding serious accident

damage or even a rolled back odometer. Licensed dealers are required by law to sell safe, lien-free vehicles and disclose vehicle histories. If you buy from Walt, you have none of the protections of buying from a licensed dealer.
