Trustees consider closing schools By Tracy Hughes

market news staff

School District #83 voted Tuesday night to consider the closure of two elementary schools in the region before the start of school in September. As it was last year, Silver Creek Elementary is again being considered for a shutdown, with its students being amalgamated with those at Salmon Arm West. There is sufficient capacity at Salmon Arm West for all the students, with about 20 student spaces still left over. The other proposed closure is for the historic building of Armstrong

Elementary, with the creation of two K-7 schools, one at Len Wood and the other at Highland Park. This would reduce the number of Armstrong schools from four to three, with Pleasant Valley Secondary converting to a Grade 8-12 configuration. While all the board members lamented the potential closures, the school district must make cuts of $1.3 million to its budget due to declining enrolment and increasing costs without additional funding from the provincial government. Tuesday’s decision to accept the two motions does not mean the

school closures are a done deal – instead the school district must initiate a 60-day public consultation process on each potential school closure before going to a final board vote on school closures at the end of April or early May. This will give the public a chance to provide information and feedback to trustees – which, if Tuesday night’s meeting was any indication, there will be strong opposition to both closures from both Armstrong and Silver Creek parents. Trustees were divided on the motions. Despite unanimous votes to bring the motions to the board a week ago, the three trustees from

the two affected areas spoke strongly against the closures in their area. “To close that school would have a detrimental result on that community,” said Trustee Kelly Rowe of the Silver Creek motion. “We have to find cuts, but I do not want to see it closed.” Chris Coers expressed concern about the accuracy of school capacity data, saying schools use space differently than in the past and closures of these two schools might be short-sighted. “If we are looking to close schools See District on page A2

District to hold public consultations Continued from front I think we need to be looking at every single other place we can cut in the process…,” she said. “That being said, if we do nothing, where will we find the $1.3 million? I’m conflicted.” Other trustees noted there is a cost to keeping schools with low enrolment open, especially when there is sufficient capacity for students in other nearby school buildings. “It is not palatable to close any school, but if we keep both open where will we make the cuts? Which programs will be chosen to go, which child will suffer because we have had to cut their services? We heard loud and clear through the town hall meetings that parents and educators want to keep programs for students rather than buildings,” said trustee Michel Saab. Board chair Bobbi

Johnson reminded trustees that while they are elected in their own areas, they need to consider the needs of students across the district – not just in their own region. “We need to make decisions for the good of every single child in the district… I don’t want to see the loss of learning resource teachers, of speech pathologists, of CEAs (certified education assistants), counsellors or literacy teachers. I don’t want us to have no money to help kids who are having problems and need help with learning,” said Johnson. “We have had to close schools before and those kids all survived and we worked to make sure those kids were doing well. Closing a school does not mean we drop kids. We still work to give those kids the best education we can.” The vote to proceed with the closure consultation process in Armstrong was 6-3 in favour

with trustees Rowe, Bob Fowler and Debbie Evans opposed. The vote to move forward with the Silver Creek closure consultation was 5-4 with the same three trustees plus Chris Coers opposed.

Bobbi Johnson The public was not allowed to speak at last night’s meeting, but during the meeting’s question period at the end, there was a large number of questions, many of which reflected strong emotion from parents concerned about the impact to their children. Anger and frustration emerged among parents who asked about everything from lobbying efforts for more funding from

the province to the use of economic rather than educational data to determine the best course of action for students. One parent wanted a guarantee that a school closure would not mean any program cuts, but Johnson said the board could not make that claim, knowing it has to cut $1.3 million this year. A parent from Armstrong asked the school district to provide information on administrative costs. “I’d like to be shown what has been cut from administration before we take away schools from our children,” she said to loud cheers. The school district has been the subject of criticism for cutting in many other areas including maintenance and school support services, but not making reductions in administration. Johnson pledged to compile this information and post it on the school district’s website.

Ranchero to go to Grade 8? By Tracy Hughes

MARKET NEWS STAFF

The idea of converting Ranchero Elementary to a K-Grade 8 school will form part of a review by the school district of the catchment areas in Enderby, Grindrod and Ranchero. Trustees voted to proceed with a review, which will consider the issue of under-capacity schools at Grindrod and Ranchero contrasted with M.V. Beattie Elementary. That school is over capacity and is the only area in the school district with some projected growth in enrolment numbers. While Grindrod Elementary had been suggested for closure as part of the school district’s long-term facilities plan, that idea was rejected in favour of looking at redistribution.

Moving Ranchero to a K-8 configuration was favoured by some trustees. “By doing that, we would get rid of one bus run, which would save us money and alleviate the situation we have now where some students spend over an hour on the bus,” said trustee Debbie Evans. It was also noted that the conversion to K to Grade 8, from the current K to Grade 7 model would provide another option for Salmon Arm parents, who might wish to move their children out of the large Shuswap Middle School. “It would be another option for kids because, as we know, bigger is not always better for everyone,” commented trustee Chris Coers. No timeline was given on the motion. Information will be gathered and then the board will discuss it.

One-campus for SAS favoured While there was considerable disagreement on proposed school closures, unanimity reigned when it came to the idea of converting Salmon Arm Secondary into a one-campus model. Currently, students at Salmon Arm Secondary spend Grade 9 and 10 at the Jackson campus and Grades 11 and 12 have classes at the Sullivan location, although some students must travel between the two campuses for certain classes. School trustees voted Tuesday to investigate the option of converting SAS into a single expanded campus. This would likely require the sale of the Jackson cam-

pus in order to come up with funds for additional space to be developed at Sullivan. Located along the Trans-Canada Highway, the Jackson campus would likely have appeal to potential buyers. “We’ve heard from educators and students that this may improve their experience in school,” said trustee Michel Saab. “But there has to be a business case for this and support from the Ministry of Education. This would not happen tomorrow, but we have to start somewhere.” While supporting the motion, trustee Chris Coers said maybe it is time to explore a dif-

ferent model in Salmon Arm, since the middle school concept is being shifted in other areas. “We’re being flexible everywhere else, maybe other configurations should be looked at.” The motion is to investigate the financial feasibility of a single Grade 9 to 12 campus, but also includes the note that if a single campus is not feasible, the school district will identify options to reduce the number of student transitions for the high school students. “I think one campus will make for a stronger community in a school and that is good thing,” commented trustee Debbie Evans.

Police investigate shooting By Tracy Hughes

MARKET NEWS STAFF

Two men remain in hospital following a shooting in the Celista area Sunday night, while a third was treated for minor injuries and has been released. The RCMP Southeast District General Investigation Section and Chase RCMP are investigating a shooting,

which occurred Sunday, Feb. 7 at 6:55 p.m. At that time, Chase RCMP responded to reports of the shooting and confirm that three adult males were injured in the incident, two of whom suffered serious gunshot wounds and were kept in hospital. The third man was released following treatment for a minor gunshot wound.

RCMP investigators from the general investigation section and the major crimes unit have been examining the scene at a Celista residence in the North Shuswap. Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to contact the Chase RCMP at 250-679-3221 or via Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

ATV accident prompts warning Salmon Arm RCMP are warning ATV riders to use caution and common sense when riding. On Feb. 7 at approximately 9:40 p.m., Salmon Arm RCMP were at White Lake assisting BC Ambulance paramedics with an ATV accident. A male had rolled his quad after riding

up an embankment and suffered lower back injuries and a fractured hip. The man’s name has not been released The incident occurred at the rear of a rural property near the operator’s property. Staff Sgt. Scott West reports alcohol is believed to have been a factor in the incident.

“The incident serves as a reminder to all recreational vehicle operators to ride safely and refrain from the use of alcohol while riding, especially in the backwoods,” he says. “Any amount of alcohol impairs judgment and, in remote locations, where safety is paramount, please don’t take needless chances.”

Byelection results not a forecast The B.C. New Democrats celebrated on Tuesday night as their candidates won two byelections — an expected victory in Vancouver-Mount Pleasant and a bit of an upset in Coquitlam-Burke Mountain. However, any excitement and attempts to link the byelection results to the general vote set for May 2017 should be tempered by the fact byelection outcomes do not necessarily signify a shift in voter intentions in the next provincial election. In the 39th parliament of B.C., between 2009 and 2013, there were three byelections — and all three winning parties promptly lost those seats in the May 14, 2013 general election. On May 11, 2011, Premier Christy Clark won the byelection in Vancouver-Point Grey, then lost the seat to the NDP in the May 14, 2013 general election. On April 19, 2012, Gwen O’Mahoney (Chilliwack-Hope) and Joe Trasolini (Port Moody-Coquitlam) were victorious New Democrats in dual byelections. Both then lost their seats to the Liberals in the May 14, 2013, general election. Perhaps the B.C. Liberals are the ones who should be celebrating for losing, if the last parliament is any indication. Voter turnout in most byelections is abysmal — and Tuesday’s turnout in Vancouver and Coquitlam were predictably pathetic, with about 20 per cent of eligible voters bothering to cast ballots in both ridings. The bigger stories from the byelections were the historic election of Melanie Mark in VancouverMount Pleasant as she became the first and only First Nations woman to be elected as a B.C. MLA. The Green party’s strong showing in VancouverMount Pleasant is also noteworthy, with candidate Pete Fry finishing second with 27 per cent of the vote. –Kamloops This Week

OPINION

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

Useful tools for the novice prospector It would seem that I am not the only one who has contracted gold fever. Since I wrote last week’s column I have had a lot of people ask me about what kind of basic gear is needed to get started in gold panning. I am but a neophyte myself. I will admit, however, that I have taken a real shining, so to speak, to searching for the glittering metal. As I mentioned last week, unlike a lot of outdoor activities that require a fairly sizeable financial investment, gold panning is relatively inexpensive. So here is a list and description of the basic gear needed to get started. Gold pans come in a variety of sizes, ranging from eight inches in diameter all the way up to 16 inches. There are those who will tell you that plastic gold pans are better than metal pans. I like both. Both serve a purpose. I have a Keene 12-inch green plastic pan that I use in conjunction with a metal detector. It is well-made and has a good system of riffles – which are indentations built into the sidewall of the

THE GREAT OUTDOORS James Murray pan designed to trap small flakes and particles of gold. Early pans from the Gold Rush era did not have riffles. Steel pans are certainly a bit heavier and, according to some a bit harder to use. The pan I use 90 per cent of the time is a lightweight metal pan made right here in B.C. It has riffles that are indented instead of ridges like on most metal pans. I also know that metal pans have one other very distinct advantage over the plastic, especially when you are walking in bear country. I usually carry my metal pan attached by a clip to my backpack and make a point of giving it a bang every now and then with my wading stick when walking along a streambank.

Inside my pack I have a small, collapsible shovel, my Estwing prospector’s pick, a plastic scoop, a metal garden trowel, a plastic snuffer bottle (used for sucking fine gold from your pan), some tweezers and a commercially made crevice tool which is essentially a piece of metal, long and thin enough so that it can be used to help get at gold that has settled into the cracks and crevices of rocks. Sometimes I also like to bring along a crow bar or pry bar to turn over heavy rocks or break open the cracks and crevices. Last year I picked up a pair of rubber waders at a thrift store, but have since invested in a pair of Muckers. Either way, you will need waterproof footwear of some sort. The weather can also change pretty fast sometimes, and it is better to carry extra clothing like rain wear that you may not use than wish you had it when the weather gets damp. I carry both neoprene waterproof gloves and leather ranch gloves. Digging around in sand and gravel can be mighty hard on both

the fingernails and hands. A five-gallon bucket can come in mighty handy for carrying all of your gear. Turn it upside-down and you’ve got something to sit on. I pack a lot of my gear in those heavy duty plastic cubes used to hold four-litre milk jugs. I also always have a number of small glass gold vials in my pockets – just in case. They are available at any store that sells prospecting equipment and come in a variety of sizes. They work well for both estimating how much gold you have accumulated and for showing off your gold. (Just a hint: filling your vial with water will make your gold appear larger.) While there are some things you will only be able to purchase from a store that sells gold panning/prospecting gear, there’s a good chance you will already have many of the tools or equipment needed for gold panning right around your home. Like I said, it doesn’t require much of an investment to get started and you never know, you just might strike it rich.

Contamination kinks recycle program By Lachlan Labere

n Sue Beckner, right, receives an incentive “swag bag” from Laura Noakes and Carmen Fennell on behalf of the City of Salmon Arm and CSRD for putting the right things in the recycling bags. rejected items are being collected, resulting in some contamination of recyclables. “The CSRD recycling depots have been operation under MMBC since Jan. 1… at which time film and Styrofoam was added to the list of materials accepted at the depot,” states Niewenhuizen’s report. “Unfortunately, bag rejections increased at this time which staff attribute to confusion as to where the added materials (plastic film and Styrofoam) were accepted.” The MMBC summary includes information from an audit, showing recyclable loads collected in Salmon Arm exceeded the three per cent weight limit of unaccepted materials

by more than seven per cent (10.23 per cent total). Included among these contaminants were hazardous materials (amounting to .13 per cent) and glass (.87 per cent). Niewenhuizen notes there is a penalty with associated fines up to $3,750 per load for non-compliance. However, he says the city, while significantly over the target contamination rate, has been assured by MMBC that it is not out of line with other communities. “They are looking to see improvement in the rates over time and not have to start fining…,” says Niewenhuizen. He considers education key to getting further compliance. “I think it comes

more, I can see that being a struggle…,” said Flynn. “I think we just have to keep pushing the education and making people aware. “Unfortunately, I think, for a lot of us, if we can’t put it in our recycling bag it just goes back in the garbage. That’s unfortunate but I think that’s what’s happening in a lot of cases.”

Salmon Arm’s curbside recycling program appears to be working well, though the city recognizes more work is needed to sort out the sorting of recyclables. The city’s contract with Multi-Materials British Columbia for the collection of recyclables has been in place since May 2014, while Columbia Shuswap Regional District recycling depots have been operating under MMBC since Jan. 2015. City staff say during that time, the transition, from an operational standpoint, has been smooth. The same trucks and drivers were on the same routes and scheduling did not change, says city engineering and public works director Rob Niewenhuizen in a report to council. There was, however, a small number of additions to what is collected in the curbside bag program, as well as a few deletions including plastic shopping bags and film (such as Glad Wrap). Monitoring by the city, as well as a performance summary from MMBC, indicates those deleted items, as well as items that were never allowed in the bag program to begin with (glass), are being left on the curb. Sometimes these items are caught, and the bags are left at the curb with a sticker stating why it wasn’t taken. The MMBC summary, however, shows that sometimes bags with

down to education and buy-in by residents to lower this contamination.” To help achieve this, the city mailed out fridge magnets detailing what is accepted in the bag program and what goes to depot. In addition, the city and the CSRD ran the Recycling Hero program in which representatives went door-to-door doing visual checks of recycling bags on the curb and “target educating” residents in the process. Council agreed to the need for more education. Coun. Kevin Flynn empathized with those who might be confused regarding the recycling of plastic films and bags, which were included in the recyclable schedule prior to MMBC taking over. “It really was plastics that people started worrying about and thinking about for recycling, and then, to not be able to throw them in the bags any-

Investments to back local business By Barb Brouwer

MARKET NEWS STAFF

Columbia Shuswap Regional District South Shuswap director Paul Demenok would like Victoria to initiate a community economic development investment fund that would offer British Columbians a tax credit for investing in locally owned and operated corporations, co-operatives and other community economic development initiatives. And he received unanimous support from the other directors at the regional district’s Jan. 21 board meeting. The issue had been brought up at the Jan. 7 electoral area directors meeting and taken to the board for support in the form of a resolution to the Southern Interior Local Government Association. In asking for board

support, Demenok said the goal would be to provide an instrument that would allow people in rural communities to invest in their own communities in order to get tax credits. “It allows people to invest in projects to stimulate the local economy,” Demenok said, noting Community Futures of the Shuswap has shown an interest in being a partner in the program. “Something we need is the province’s assistance to lay the framework and then we can create our own investment pools.” Demenok pointed to a similar project in Nova Scotia. The Government of Nova Scotia’s Community Economic Development Investment Funds (CEDIF) is a program that offers a 35 per cent tax credit for Nova Scotians who put their investment capital in funds that support local-

ly owned and operated corporations, co-operatives, and community economic development initiatives. Since 1999, the program is reported to have

spurred the creation of 48 funds and 91 offerings, which have a total of more than $32 million in assets. “In my 35 years of experience in economic

development in Nova Scotia, there has never been a more cost-effective program for encouraging entrepreneurship and innovation,” said Shelley Wilcox of

It will be a very different Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show for Lori Crandlemire and Miss P this year. Instead of strutting on the carpet at Madison Square Gardens, the beagle breeder and her champion pooch will be curled up together watching the spectacle on television from their Enderby living room. Miss P was last year’s Best in Show winner of the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show. While already a top show dog, Miss P was the proverbial underdog to win the Best in Show honours at the most prestigious show in North America. Despite the odds, Miss P’s beagle charms won over the judge and, along with her handler Will Alexander, was swept into dog show history. After winning the title and conducting a few worldwide media appearances on talk shows, in parades and even getting to drop the puck at a Chicago Blackhawks game, Miss P returned to live with the Crandlemire family this March and is retired from the show ring. “She’s enjoying her retirement,” says Crandlemire, who admits that Miss P now sleeps on the bed and enjoys her days in the companionship of her grandfather and two other beagles. She’s also got a definite preference for

n Enderby beagle Miss P visits with her handler, Will Alexander, who accompanied her to the highly coveted top spot at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show. her two stuffed toys, a fox and a bunny, and doesn’t play prima donna at the food dish. “Well, she is a beagle. They’ll eat anything,” laughs Crandlemire. But Miss P hasn’t entirely stepped out the limelight. In the summer she modelled for an American Eagle fashion campaign, and travelled to Calgary to meet up with Alexander, who continues to

work as one of Canada’s top professional dog handlers. Crandlemire took Miss P to a show at Spruce Meadows in Calgary and Miss P immediately recognized her dog show partner. “She heard his voice and it was the same as always, she was in dog show mode. She was up on his lap in a second.” Crandlemire says

she recognized Miss P was special right from puppyhood, when she was born in a litter of six. “There were some nice pups in that litter, but she stood out. She had this personality that wouldn’t quit.” But Crandlemire credits Alexander with making Miss P a star. He saw her at a show when she was six months old and approached the breeder. “He convinced us that she had what it takes,” Crandlemire says. “But we had no idea to what level she would reach. I really never dreamed the extent of what she would accomplish. Will really created that, he brought out her potential.” Following the win, there has been a lot of interest in Crandlemire’s Tashtin Kennel beagles, but Crandlemire says she’s a small breeder and isn’t interested in producing any more puppies than she would have before Miss P’s win. That being said, Miss P is hopefully destined for motherhood in the spring, as Crandlemire would love a puppy from her top-winning canine. “We would like a Miss P puppy, but you can’t just expect the same. I think she’s a once in a lifetime for a breeder.” The 2016 Westminster Kennel Club show begins Feb. 15 and 16 in New York City, and plays hosts to hundreds of top-winning representatives of their breed.

Making an informed choice about butter, margarine HEALTHY BITES Serena Caner What should you be spreading on your toast? The debate of butter versus margarine

becomes even more complicated: salt-free margarine, light margarine, margarine with added plant sterols, coconut oil? Why does this continue to be a dilemma? The answer is simple: we all secretly want to be eating butter. It makes almost anything taste delicious. But undermining the sheer joy of slathering a thick layer onto almost any food, is a tiny paranoid voice in our head,

“heart attack!” Heart disease and stroke continue to be leading causes of death in Canada. The main problem with butter (and coconut oil) is it is high in saturated fat. A recent Cochrane review of fifteen randomized controlled trials, confirmed that reducing intake of saturated fat reduces the risk of cardiovascular events, such as non-fatal heart attacks, angina, stroke,

heart failure, peripheral vascular events and atrial fibrillation, although their role in mortality was unclear. And then there are trans fats. A large study in Canada found that trans fat intakes are associated with a 34 per cent increase in all-cause mortality, and a 21 per cent increase in total cardiovascular disease. Trans fats are found in margarines that have been made by hydrogenating

oil, an industrial process that makes liquid oil into a solid fat. Most margarines on the grocery shelves these days are non-hydrogenated, but the former are still found in commercially made products because they are inexpensive. So the short answer is this: non-hydrogenated margarines are thought to be better for your health than butter. Canadians are encouraged to cut back on saturated

and trans fat. Here are some hearthealthy tips: • Reduce the main sources of trans fats: commercial cakes, cookies and pastries; shortening and partially hydrogenated margarines; chips, crackers; commercially prepared popcorn and deep-fried foods. • Adding plant sterols to margarine (such as Becel proactive) has been shown in some

studies to improve cholesterol levels, but is expensive. • If you love butter, consider cutting back on other sources of saturated fat instead (red meat, cheese, high-fat dairy). • If you are still a skeptic of margarine, try spreading nut butters or avocados on toast. My favourite is almond butter with either banana or apricot jam and sprinkle of cinnamon.

(NC) Diabetes has become a major health concern in Canada, as more than 20 people are diagnosed with the disease every hour of every day. In Ontario alone, over ten per cent of the population is currently living with diabetes, and many struggle to properly manage medications and lifestyle changes. The good news is that local pharmacists can play a key role in helping people living with diabetes properly manage their disease. MedsCheck is a government-funded medication review program that allows eligible Ontarians to receive a free one-onone consultation with a pharmacist to ensure safe, effective and appropriate use of prescription, overthe-counter and alternative medications for those taking three prescription medications or more for a chronic condition. According to Sean Simpson, Chair of the Board, Ontario Pharmacists Association (OPA), any Ontarian diagnosed with type 1 or type 2 diabetes and who is managing their diabetes with medication qualifies for a consultation under the MedsCheck for Diabetes program. “It’s important for

Salmar promotion supports food banks By Barb Brouwer

“The generous donation will help many local families in their time of need.” Last Thursday, David Byers community services co-ordinator for the Salvation Army, said he was amazed by the donation, particularly since the food bank had served more than 200 people that day.

Results of Salmar Theatre’s Star Wars promotion were out of this world. Thanks to the generosity of local moviegoers, more than $3,600 will be split between Second Harvest and the Salvation Army Food Bank. That amount represents an impressive 10 per cent of popcorn sales at Salmar Theatre concessions from Dec. 18 to Jan. 17. “Our main focus was on 10 per cent of popcorn sales being donated to the food banks and we had prize draws for people who bought from the concession,” says Salmar manager Daila Duford, noting food bank dona-

It’s the most successful we’ve ever been at getting actual

food donations.” Duford says one group of some 170 friends rented the theatre for the private showing and raised another $300 by passing around a bucket.

“Wow! Second Harvest is extremely grateful for everything that the Salmar does for us and for our community,” said enthusiastic Second Harvest co-ordinator Diana Mangold.

Guess who buys it in Funkin’ Dead Sometimes everything clicks. Music from the ’70s, vocalists and a threepiece combo, plus good food from the Aquatico Restaurant come together to make for a great night out, says Actors’ Studio head James Bowlby of his latest production, Funkin’ Dead. The story revolves around Vincent “the Pussycat” Myers

(Randy Brogden), who is under investigation for dealing dope out of his nightclub, the Kitty Club. Two inept cops are told to butt out and are replaced by two undercover women, sending Myers into a steamy, hopeful swoon. Somewhere along the line, gun shots are fired. Who was done in and who did the doing in

are matters left up to the audience – at least until dessert. “Cheating, revenge, and funk music control this fun plot,” says Bowlby. “A great fourcourse buffet-style dinner is interspersed with scenes from the show.” Prizes for guessing the murderer and for wearing the best ’70s costume add to the fun. Funkin’ Dead stars

Elaine Holmes as Rosa, the Kitty Club’s lead singer, with swaggering, cheeky Mike Nash giving her a rough time with his wandering issues. The show runs at 7 p.m. Feb. 12, 13, 19 and 20 at Prestige Harbourfront Resort. Tickets are available at Intwined Fibre Arts or online at www.saactorsstudio. com.

Meanwhile, Duford is grateful to several local businesses who donated excellent prizes for the Star Wars promotion. “Askew’s donated a big food basket and gave us a discount on gift cards as well, so that added to our total,” said an enthusiastic Duford, pointing

out she and Salmar staff are busy putting together an entry package together for Show Canada, an annual movie industry conference. An entry based on a Box Trolls promotion held to celebrate Salmar’s 65th anniversary took top prize at Show Canada last year.

Fire departments save business money A local government success story is developing from within the Columbia Shuswap Regional District as a result of the exceptional efforts of the trained female and male firefighters, combined with significant investment in training, apparatus and waterworks infrastructure in several electoral areas within

the region. Commercial insurance premiums have reduced or will be reduced over the coming year in the community of Scotch Creek as a result of recent testing by the Fire Underwriters Survey (FUS) with the Scotch CreekLee Creek Fire Department. With the support of the Celis-

ta, Anglemont and Shuswap Fire departments, the Scotch Creek-Lee Creek Fire Department is the first to succeed at achieving the commercial Superior Tanker Shuttle Service (STSS) accreditation. STSS accreditation is awarded to fire de-

Training, equipment lowers rates Continued from page B1 partments that meet or exceed predetermined commercial water flow volumes and can sustain that ability to flow and haul water with multiple water hauling apparatus over a pre-determined period of time as required by the FUS. There is a different water flow requirement for residential and commercial properties. The commercial properties have tighter distance requirements and higher flow rates. Currently, commercial property owners who pay property insurance pay premiums based on their level of fire protection. Properties that are within 150 metres of a fire hydrant and serviced by a responding firehall that is within five kilometres of their business pay

the lowest premium. Commercial property owners who do not have a fire hydrant within 150 metres often pay a greater amount in premiums. With STSS commercial accreditation, the FUS advises the insurers that commercial property owners within the 5-km threshold and within 2.5 km of a recognized water supply source, who are serviced by an accredited firehall are eligible to receive ‘hydrantprotected’ rates because the capacity of the fire department to deliver water to an incident is equivalent to having a fire hydrant within 150m.  The previous STSS accreditation in 2014, on the residential lines of service, has resulted in significant premium savings for residents.  As an example, one resident in the Scotch Creek area, whose home has a replace-

ment value of $565,000, was paying $1,309 premium as a ‘semi protected’ property. In 2014, once the STSS accreditation was completed, the premium for the same property was reduced to $680 annually. CSRD Regional Fire Chief Kenn Mount is particularly proud of the members of the successful fire departments who made this possible and is setting goals that will hopefully see more departments achieve STSS accreditation in the future: “The CSRD recognizes the benefits of investment in personnel and apparatus for fire departments within the entire region and is working together towards a goal of seeing most if not all of the fire departments achieve the STSS accreditation,” said Mount. “Further investment in apparatus, primarily additional water tenders, will

be required for a few departments who currently do not have the STSS accreditation. In addition, engineered and approved water sources, such as ‘dry hydrants’ will be required in areas in order to meet the FUS requirements,” Mount added. A special appreciation goes out to the members of the fire service who went beyond their normal recognized training and practice times in order to be proficient and pass the test on their first attempt. For more information on the status of the Fire Underwriters Survey visit www. fireunderwriters.ca. Residents are encouraged to contact their local insurance broker to determine if their insurance premiums are affected by the newly achieved STSS accreditation by the successful fire departments.

Record year for Heat By Scott Koch

www.saobserver.net B3

School District No. 73 [KAMLOOPS/THOMPSON]

KINDERGARTEN REGISTRATION FOR SEPTEMBER 2016

CONTRIBUTOR

After five years of on-ice action, the Heat Junior Hockey Club has garnered a franchise record with 59 points – with five games left to play. They are the KIJHL league leaders on special teams and are guaranteed a playoff spot. Definitely some things for the fans to appreciate, and the entire community to be proud of. So, the question must be asked – where are these fans? There is definitely a diehard group that solidly support the team and organization, but where are the curious, the non-committed and those looking for a social outlet? The team just completed a stretch of five games in eight nights, winning three, but losing two to competition ahead of the Heat in their division. This past week saw road wars in the Houseboat Capital and the Mountain Mecca, and then a battle at home with the visiting Cariboo Cowboys. On Tuesday, Feb. 2 the boys were in Sicamous versus the Eagles. Affiliate player Rylen Van Unen made a stellar debut in the lineup by firing four goals to lead the Heat to a 6-3 victory. In the 1st, Van Unen from Spencer Farstad and Kolten Moore. Then Van Unen from Moore and Mason Palaga, before Pat Brady got one from Brad Whitehead and Alex Durbeniuk. In the 2nd, Van Unen from Palaga and Moore, then Sicamous got on the board before Van Unen went back to work from Moore and Whitehead. In the 3rd Travis Beaubien popped one in from Austin Willier and Zach Fournier. The Eagles scored a pair just to make it interesting. Daniel Toews stopped 24 of 27 to backstop the victory.

n With 100 Mile House Wranglers Michael Lynch hot on his heels, Chase Heat Rylan Van Unen races after the puck behind the Wranglers’ net, looking to maintain control down low as the Heat looked for the tying goal, down 3-2 in the third period. the 1st, Tommy Brown from Moore and Durbeniuk, then Brady on a beauty from Trevor Okino and Ethan Buck, before Michael Fidanza on the power play popped one in from Brown and Okino. In the 2nd, Josh Bourne made it 4-0 from Okino and Toews. The 3rd featured two additional goals by the Heat bookended by a pair of Revelstoke markers, Whitehead on the power play from Durbeniuk and Bourne, and Kaden Black from Farstad and Fournier. Toews in the twine stymied 39 of 41 attempts at scoring by the tenacious Cubs. February 6th at the Art Holding Memorial Arena, saw Division ri-

vals 100 Mile House Wranglers drop in for some pounding and whacking. Maybe too much hockey for the local crew on top of a relentless attack by the visitors, this one went in the books as a 3-2 loss for the Heat. The Wranglers opened scoring before Beaubien on the power play evened things up, assisted by Okino and Hughes. The Wranglers attack got a 2nd tally to end the first up 2-1. In the 2nd, “Downtown” Tommy Brown scored from Van Unen, and then the Cariboo Cattle Herders got the eventual game winner. No scoring in the 3rd resulted in victory for the visitors. Nic

Bruyere got in front of 30 of 33 in a solid performance in net. Rylen Van Unen was not the only affiliate player and new face in the lineup, as Cory Loring from Williams Lake joined the Heat for the pair of weekend contests. Tried, tested and true, the Heat have found some young talent for now and the future. Next up at home is the big city unit, the Kamloops Storm on Saturday the 13th at 7 p.m. The curious should attend and catch a glimpse of rock and roll shinny while conversing with friends and neighbours. See you there with your hair slicked back and your favourite jeans on!

Columbia Shuswap Regional District PUBLIC HEARING Scotch Creek/Lee Creek Zoning Amendment (CSRD) Bylaw No. 825-35

Brief Summary: Bylaw No. 825-35 proposes to fully eliminate certain site specific regulations in Scotch Creek/Lee Creek Zoning Bylaw No. 825 that are no longer applicable, and to revise site specific regulations containing uses that are no longer active. It also proposes housekeeping amendments to amend two incorrect legal descriptions and update two reference maps. Bylaw No. 825-35 is a first step in a larger process to develop a new zoning bylaw for the entire North Shuswap – a bylaw that will complement the Electoral Area ‘F’ Official Community Plan (OCP). Amending Bylaw No. 825-35 will contribute towards bringing consistency between permitted land uses in the zoning bylaw, and land use designations in the OCP – a requirement for both bylaws under the Local Government Act. When? Wednesday, February 24th, 2016 at 6:00 PM (Pacific Time) Where? Scotch Creek/Lee Creek Community Hall/Fire Hall, 3852 SquilaxAnglemont Road, Scotch Creek, BC. Who should attend? Anyone who believes that their interest in property is affected by the proposed Bylaw amendment shall be afforded a reasonable opportunity to be heard or to present written submissions at the Public Hearing respecting matters contained in the Bylaw. How can I find out more about this rezoning amendment? A copy of the proposed bylaw and relevant background documents may be inspected at the CSRD offices, 555 Harbourfront Drive NE, Salmon Arm, BC between the hours of 9:00 AM and 4:00 PM from Monday, February 1st, 2016 until Tuesday, February 23rd, 2016 (excluding Saturdays, Sundays and Statutory holidays). How do I send a written submission? Written submissions will be received in the Regional District Offices until 4 PM on Tuesday, February 23rd, 2016 or may be submitted until the close of the public hearing. Written submissions received will be available to the public and the applicant. The mailing address is: 555 Harbourfront Drive NE, Box 978 Salmon Arm, BC Email submissions may be sent to: plan@csrd.bc.ca Who can I speak to about this application?

North Korea not plotting its own demise GLOBAL VIEWS Gwynne Dyer Here we go again. North Korea launched a ballistic missile of intercontinental range on Sunday (saying it was just putting up a satellite) only weeks after it carried out its fourth nuclear weapons test (which it claimed was a hydrogen bomb).The United Nations Security Council strongly condemned it, and even the People’s Republic of China, North Korea’s only ally, expressed its “regret” at what the country had done. There will certainly now be more UN sanctions against Kim Jongun’s isolated regime. But there have already been four rounds of UN military and economic sanctions since North Korea’s first nuclear test in 2006, and Pyongyang just ignores them. Clearly, this is something that the North Korean regime wants so badly that it is willing to endure considerable punishment in order to get it. But why is this very poor country spending vast sums

in order to be able to strike its neighbours – and even the United States, for that is what the intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) are about – with nuclear weapons? Well, here’s a clue. What the North Korean government said after last month’s hydrogen bomb test was this: “The DPRK (Democratic People’s Republic of Korea) is a genuine peace-loving state which has made every effort to protect peace on the Korean Peninsula and security in the region from the vicious US nuclear war scenario.” “The US is a gang of cruel robbers that has worked hard to bring even a nuclear disaster to the DPRK....By succeeding in the Hbomb test... the DPRK proudly joined the advanced ranks of nuclear weapons states... and the Korean people demonstrated the spirit of a dignified nation equipped with the most powerful nuclear deterrent.” Never mind the stilted rhetoric and gutter abuse; North Korean propagandists always talk like that. Listen to the key words that are almost buried under the surrounding invective. North Korea’s nuclear weapons programme, they say, is meant to “protect... the region from... the US ...nuclear

war scenario” by creating a “most powerful nuclear deterrent.” Really? Do they actually fear that the United States might use nuclear weapons on them, and that they can only be safe if they have their own hydrogen bombs and ICBMs? Are they doing all this purely as a defensive measure? Of course they are. However bad-tempered and impulsive they sounded, the men of the Kim family, father, son and grandson, who have ruled North Korea in dynastic succession for the past 68 years were not crazy. They never started a war, because they knew they would lose it, and the current incumbent is certainly not going to start a nuclear war. He would have to be crazy to do that. North Korea lacks the resources to build more than a few bombs a year, and it does not have the technologies to ensure that the mssiles it may one day have won’t get shot down. It will probably never be able to guarantee that it can strike even South Korea or Japan with nuclear missiles, let alone the United States. Everybody in the North Korean hierarchy (along with some millions of other North Koreans) would certainly be dead only hours after the regime launched nuclear weapons at

any of those countries. The United States has literally thousands of nuclear weapons. It would take only a few dozen quite small ones to virtually exterminate the entire ruling elite, and North Korea would have no way of stopping them. A few not-very-hightech nuclear weapons would give Pyongyang no usable ability to launch a nuclear attack against the United States or its allies. They would, however, give it a pretty credible nuclear deterrent. Launching a few nuclear weapons against a major nuclear power is suicidal, but those same few weapons can be a perfectly good deterrent against a nuclear attack by that same power, because they give the weaker party a capacity for “revenge from the grave.” Even a country as powerful as the United States will behave very cautiously when faced with the possibility that an opponent might land even one or two nuclear weapons on its territory. North Korea is just doing the same thing that Pakistan did in the 1980s and ’90s out of fear of Indian nuclear weapons, and that Iran was doing in fear of both Pakistani and Israeli nuclear weapons in the last 15 years. The Security Council is quite right to try

to block North Korea’s nuclear weapons programme, and the successful use of international sanctions to stop Iran offers some hope

that it may succeed. But North Korea is not a crazy state plotting a nuclear holocaust at the cost of its own extinction. Its nuclear

weapons programme is a perfectly rational – although highly undesirable – policy for a small country with a big problem.

cause it takes precious energy for them to melt snow in their mouths. It doesn’t seem like they belong here in winter to me, but I guess it’s their choice to stay and they’re not suffering. When I see one in the snow now, I’ll know that it’s probably coping with the cold OK because there’s luckily plenty of mountain ash in the area to keep their tummies topped up to keep warm. But still, I think I’ll treat them to a blueberry or two if it turns really cold, just to make sure they survive – poor things.

extreme cold – don’t hurt most birds, just as long as they have food. As nights grow cooler during the fall, northern birds start growing lots of downy feathers close to their bodies that help keep them insulated and warm, plus they’re also able to make body heat by shivering. During the spring, summer and fall, their diet consists of delicacies such as beetle grubs, earthworms, caterpillars, fruits and berries and the ones that stay north nibble on mostly mountain ash berries and crab apples. These might not be that easy to find at times, so us folks can help out our little feathered friends by offering them nutritious energy snacks like blueberries, raspberries and strawberries – but not birdseed, because they’ll turn their beaks up at it. These tough little thrushes would also appreciate it if you could leave the food in the same spot so they can find it easier and faster, as well as put out a little drinking water if everything is frozen up, be-

The north wind doth blow, and we shall have snow, And what will poor robin do then, poor thing? He’ll sit in a barn, and keep himself warm, And hide his head under his wing, poor thing. The North Wind Doth Blow (Robin), author unknown When I spot a robin huddling in a snowy tree while out on my daily strolls, I often wonder why some of them are still hanging around here in these cold Canadian winters, rather than basking in warmer climes. Was it because a few happened to miss the memo to move south, or are they just the birdbrains of the bunch? In case you’re curious

North America, from Alaska to Mexico, and move around more in response to food sources rather than to temperature. There are a few that tough it out in the northern part of the U.S. and southern Canada, but the majority head south to overwinter in Florida and the Gulf Coast, central Mexico and Guatemala, as well as along the Pacific Coast. The males are far more likely to remain in the north than females, not because they’re more macho, but because come springtime, their main job is to find and defend a territory and they want to be there first. A female’s job is to create and lay the eggs, which requires a lot of good nutrition and food energy, so she has to make sure she’s got lots of groceries in winter, which keeps her in the sunnier south. One would think that robins could freeze to death in the winter months, especially in the colder provinces, but apparently frigid temperatures – even

about this too, I’ll begin with a little background on these beautiful little birds that we all love and know so well. These heralds of the dusk and dawn with their delightful song are known as an American robin, named after the European robin because of its reddish-orange breast, though not closely related. They are part of the thrush family which has about 65 species, ranging from medium to large. According to some sources, this bird ranks behind only the redwinged blackbird and just ahead of the introduced European starling and the not-always naturally occurring house finch, as the most abundant land bird on this continent. This is a triumph considering that an unbelievable 80 per cent of their young fall to predators every year, like that raven that raided the nest full of fledglings on my porch last year. Jerk! Robins are a migratory songbird that commonly live and breed throughout

Register soon for anxiety prevention program School District #83 and the District Parent Advisory Committee (DPAC) host a free FRIENDS Parent Program Workshop next Thursday. The workshop is designed for parents, families and caregivers to learn more about the online portion of the BC FRIENDS Parent Program and how to use it at home. FRIENDS is an evidence-based anxiety prevention and resiliency program used in B.C. schools to promote the mental health and well-being of all students.  The online program provides family friendly resources, tools, home activities and

videos addressing the following: How anxiety affects children, how to foster resilience, how to reinforce the FRIENDS skills at home and where to go for more information. Workshop participants will be given parent-friendly tools and information to practise the concepts together at home and assist them in helping their children cope with their worries, learn how to relax and more.

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.

Louise Phillips (Laas)

June 5, 1958 - February 18, 2011

When I am gone, release me, let me go. I have so many things to see and do. You must not tie yourself to me with tears. Be happy that we had so many beautiful years. I gave to you my love, you can only guess How much you gave to me in happiness. I thank you for the love you’ve shown me, But now it’s time I travel on, alone. So grieve a while for me if you must, Then let your grief be comforted by trust. It’s only for a while that we must part, So bless the memories within your hearts. I won’t be far away, for life goes on. So, if you need me, call and I will come. Though you can’t see or touch me, I’ll be near and if you listen with your hearts, You’ll hear all my love around you, Soft and clear; and then when you must Come this way alone, I’ll greet you with a Smile and say, “Welcome Home.”

HERBERT (HERB) YOUNG With deep sadness we announce the sudden passing of our husband, father, grandfather, and so much more, Herbert (Herb) Young. Herb was born in Grandview, Manitoba in 1946 and lived there until the spring of 1959 when they sold their farm, machinery and animals, climbed on a train and moved to British Columbia. Herbs family took up residence at the Falkland Ranch where Herb’s dad was to work. Graduating from Salmon Arm Secondary in 1964, Herb took a job at the Federated Co-op in Salmon Arm and then continued on at the Ministry of Highways where he worked from 1969 to 2002, retiring after 33 years. He then continued an active retired life, remaining in Salmon Arm. He is survived by his wife, Anne-Marie (Mennie), his sons Brad (Corinne Christie) of Salmon Arm, Mike (Nicole Grimm) of Calgary, his daughter Jennifer (Mike Dunn) also of Calgary. As well, he is survived by his siblings Loretta Young (John Franks), Brian Young (Ingrid) Joan Young (Ron Norman) and Glennis Vetter (Phil) and by his 5 grandchildren, Kimberly, Hailey, Tyler, Micaela and Zack. Herb was known for his quiet, observant nature, his witty remarks, and his kind heart. He was a dedicated family man that was always on the positive side of life and savoured all of the little things. He was known to love a great cup of coffee and a piece of pie, and being surrounded by his family. Though his health started narrowing his ability to do some of the things he loved, he faced it with strength and made the most of everyday. The family asks that any donations or support be sent to the Canadian Heart and Stroke Foundation. Online condolences can be sent to www.bowersfuneralservice.com. There was a celebration of life for Herb held on Saturday, February 6th held by Bowers Funeral Home and Crematorium in Salmon Arm.

Romantic poetry fitting for Valentine’s Day Poets have been putting pen to paper for centuries, and many great works evoke the themes of love and romance. Those will little experience writing their own poetry can always borrow heartfelt words from some of history’s greatest bards. John Keats Keats was an English Romantic poet who lost both of his parents at a very young age. Keats decided to try his hand at poetry and went on to publish many poems now considered among the greatest ever written. Tragically, Keats died from tuberculosis at the age of 25. “Bright Star” is one of his famous romantic works. Bright Star Bright star, would I were stedfast as thou art– Not in lone splendour hung aloft the night And watching, with eternal lids apart, Like nature’s patient, sleepless Eremite, The moving waters at their priestlike task Of pure ablution round earth’s human shores, Or gazing on the new soft-fallen mask Of snow upon the mountains and the moors– No—yet still stedfast, still unchangeable, Pillow’d upon my fair love’s ripening breast, To feel for ever its soft fall and swell, Awake for ever in a sweet unrest, Still, still to hear her tender-taken breath, And so live ever–or else swoon to death. Robert Browning At an early age the young Browning became interested in poetry but didn’t write much through his formative years. Only after marrying fellow poet Elizabeth Barrett did Browning begin to write in earnest. “Life in a Love” is one of his romantic musings. Life in a Love Escape me? Never— Beloved! While I am I, and you are you, So long as the world contains us both, Me the loving and you the loth, While the one eludes, must the other pursue. My life is a fault at last, I fear: It seems too much like a fate, indeed! Though I do my best I shall scarce succeed. But what if I fail of my purpose here? It is but to keep the nerves at strain, To dry one’s eyes and laugh at a fall, And baffled, get up to begin again,— So the chase takes up one’s life, that’s all. While, look but once from your farthest bound, At me so deep in the dust and dark, No sooner the old hope drops to ground Than a new one, straight to the selfsame mark, I shape me— Ever Removed!
