Kyllo sweeps to election victory Incumbent MLA wins riding with more than 50 per cent of the vote. Barb Brouwer and Martha Wickett Salmon Arm Observer

A minority government may be the story provincially, but in the Shuswap, Liberal MLA Greg Kyllo will be heading back to the legislature with more than 56 per cent of the vote. With all 78 ballot boxes counted, Kyllo had garnered 14,236 votes. NDP candidate Sylvia Lindgren earned 6,816 or 26.9 per cent of the votes, BC Green candidate Kevin Babcock took 3,940 votes and Libertarian Kyle McCormack got 388 votes. Out of 40,978 registered voters in the Shuswap as of April 11, only 25,380 went to the polls on voting day. Elated with the results, the morning after the election Kyllo said that while he had been hesitant to run for office four years ago, he believes he has more to offer. Kyllo says he was somewhat apprehensive as results started to come in, considering recent elections in other jurisdictions. “But I worked hard and got impressive results; I’m relieved,” he said with a laugh. “I appreciate the volunteers who worked hard for the last 28 days. We didn’t get into negativity.” Kyllo says he reminded voters that when the Liberals took office, B.C. was in the last place in terms of economic growth, had the highest unemployment rate and a total of six credit rat-

ing downgrades. Kyllo says the biggest issue now is the absentee vote which is yet to be counted. “Absentee ballots typically favour the Liberals and if that’s the case, my gut tells me we should get at least one more seat, which would give us the majority we need to form government,” he says. “If we’re not part of the governing party, it will be be very different.” Regardless, Kyllo said he is hoping to be able to continue earning the support of his constituents. “No government is perfect, nor is any MLA, but I have worked hard to resolve some of the issues in the Shuswap and obviously, there are lots of projects I’d like to see completed,” he says. NDP candidate Sylvia Lindgren conceded defeat Tuesday night, but praised her campaign volunteers for their efforts, saying they were going to continue their work to “lift people up.” Wednesday morning she said she was doing well. “It was a good adventure, a good ride and we built a great team. It’s all good, we’ll get them next time.” Asked about highlights and lowlights of the campaign, she said the highlights were definitely the people who came to volunter. The hardest part was participating in eight forums in a row, she said. “That was pretty tough. I

Tracy Hughes Salmon Arm Observer

A Sunnybrae man remains missing and presumed dead following a May 6 mudslide in the 5900 block of Sunnybrae Canoe Point Road. After days of fruitless searching, Salmon Arm RCMP said Monday that Roy Frederick Sharp, 76, is presumed deceased and the search effort has become a recovery mission. His body had not been recovered by Wednesday. A team from Shuswap Search and Rescue and 11 members of Canada Task Force 1 Heavy Urban Search and Rescue Team made attempts to search the man’s extensively damaged residence without success. At 7 p.m. on May 6, Canada Task Force 1 performed a safety assessment of the site and was able to enter the affected residence

to begin a technical search which included the use of the canine unit and thermal imaging cameras. Search efforts were temporarily suspended at sunset due to unstable conditions, resuming Sunday, May 7 at 6:30 a.m. The task force was released from the scene Sunday afternoon. “We have not located Mr. Sharp in or around the residence at this time, but we believe he has perished as a result of this natural disaster,” said RCMP Staff. Sgt Scott West of the decision to move the search from rescue to recovery mode. Members of the Sharp family have visited the area and West says they now have an appreciation for scope of the disaster and the risk to personnel. “The saturation level is so extreme that it is even difficult to walk on the surface in some

places,” says West. “They are understandably upset and we are trying to provide them with supports.” The recovery effort will continue this week, with daily assessments being made by geotechnical analysts to determine if the area is stable enough for personnel to continue working. “The area remains unstable and the safety of the people in the slide zone is paramount,” added West, who notes RCMP and private security have been brought in to ensure unauthorized people do not enter the area. West says in places the mud is very deep, estimating that at the roadway it is between six and eight feet in depth, and even greater at the site of the Sharp residence, which was knocked completely off its foundation and Continued on A4

The evacuation orders remain in place for the foreseeable future. Sunnybrae Canoe Point Road remains closed between the addresses 5866 and 5948, affecting 13 properties. Residents living beyond the landslide area still do not have road access to their homes and are not being allowed to drive through the evacuation zone at this time. Construction crews began the work to clear slide debris on Tuesday, May 9. “The work being performed is under strict monitoring to ensure the safety of the workers as the slide area remains active.

election shifts B.C. politics

With Andrew Weaver serving Oak Bay-Gordon Head in the upcoming session of the Legislature you could be forgiven for thinking that not much has changed since the election campaign began. But the political landscape saw a seismic shift since the writ was dropped on April 11. The dust still hasn’t completely settled on who will be guiding the direction of the province over the next four years (or less). As it currently sits, the BC Liberals will have 43 seats in the Legislature, compared to the NDP’s 41 and the three MLAs who will sit for the BC Green Party. But a lot remains to be settled. There are still thousands of absentee ballots that have not been counted, with the tabulation expected to take place between May 22 and 24. And with the NDP holding just a nine-vote lead over the Liberals in Courtenay-Comox, it’s clear that a lot can still change. And a shift of just 10 votes in that one riding would be enough to give the Liberals a majority (if everything else remains the same). If the absentee ballots don’t translate to any changes to the current results, it leaves Weaver in the position of kingmaker (or queenmaker, as the case may be), holding the balance of power. But there is little doubt that Weaver and the Greens should be able to extract a number of concessions for their support in the Legislature. Electoral reform is sure to be at the top of the list, as a change in the first-past-the-post system will ensure a growing Green beachhead in elections to come. -Hope Standard

Anticipating spring turnover the greAt outdoors James Murray Fishing is now in full swing on many lower altitude lakes here in the South Interior, at least for those anglers who don’t mind sitting out in the cold and rain. As for myself, I am waiting for a bit better weather. I’m also waiting for a number of my favourite lakes to go through the process of spring turnover. Normally, spring turnover begins five to eight days after iceoff. This year, however, due to all the rain and cold temperatures, turnovers have been inconsistent. Spring turnover occurs when the colder water on the surface of a lake starts to mix with warmer waters below. How does this happen? Well, according to what I was able to find out

on the Internet, when water temperatures reach approximately 4 C, water molecules become more dense, ultimately sinking to the bottom of the lake and pushing the water it has displaced to the surface. As temperatures drop to below freezing, surface water forms into ice, effectively capping the lake and preventing further energy loss. Throughout the winter months, the ice and snow block the sun and photosynthesis ceases. Vegetation on the lake floor begins to die off and decay, giving off heat, which also warms the waters of the lower layer. In spring, after iceoff, neither water layers will mix until each layer is similar in temperature and

then, with a little help from the wind, the layers start to roll over and mix. During this mixing of water layers, the lake tends to become clouded and muddy. Fishing slows right down. Only after the turnover process is completed, will the lake again become rejuvenated with oxygen and the fish start to actively feed. When both air and water temperatures do begin warming up, it will certainly herald the start chironomids hatches. A successful fly fisher will have a large variety of chironomid patterns in their fly box. The majority of chironomid hatches take place in waters that are no more than 20 feet deep, and although individual chironomids are often tiny, one only has to look at the tremendous number of empty chironomid pupae cases floating on the water to realize just how many are hatching. The pupae stage

can be anywhere from less than a quarter of an inch to as large as three quarters of an inch. In shades of pale green to brown, wine and black, chironomid pupae are easily identified by their pronounced segmentation along the abdomen, and the presence of white, feather-like gills on the head and sometimes on the tip of the abdomen. The pupae emerge from protective tubes in the lake bottom to begin their ascent to the surface by trapping gases under the skin of their abdomen and thorax. Upon reaching the surface, a split forms along the back of the thorax, the winged adult emerges and the mature insect flies off to mate and begin the cycle all over again. It is during their ascent to the surface that chironomid pupae become easy prey for opportunistic trout which will often feed almost exclusively on the emerging pupae.

Most anglers fish chironomid patterns with a floating line and a long sinking leader. An integral part of fishing with chironomid patterns is having enough patience to wait for such a tiny fly to sink to the required depth. Strikes are often subtle and hard to recognize. It can take three to five minutes for a fly to sink 20 feet in the water. A slow retrieve is also essential – a couple of inches, pause, a couple more inches, then a longer pause. Too fast a retrieve and your presentation looks too unnatural. More often than not the trick to post turnover chironomid fishing is to find that one chironomid pattern that the trout just can’t resist. On the other hand, a person can always go see Bill at Westside Stores and ask him which pattern is working best on what lake, like I do.

GET THE FULL STORY

Unstable minority unlikely to last BC VIEWS Tom Fletcher Christy Clark claimed victory Tuesday night and said her B.C. Liberal Party will carry on, a razor-thin two seats ahead of the resurgent NDP. With absentee ballots still to be counted in the days ahead, Clark’s 43 seats represent a loss of only four from the last majority, and the NDP’s 41 seats is up six. But that handful of seats, mostly in Metro Vancouver, has changed the landscape of the whole province. The Green Party’s three seats give leader Andrew Weaver a lot of say in how long the Clark government can survive in the first minority government in B.C. since the 1950s. “Tonight is the beginning of something very

different,” Clark told a subdued crowd. “And something that could be really exciting.” It will be exciting all right, and it could even work out in favour of the party that has run British Columbia for 16 years. When W.A.C. Bennett defeated the Liberal-Conservative coalition government in 1952, his minority lasted less than a year before opponents brought the government down. But Bennett had the last laugh, winning a majority and ruling for 20 years. Weaver’s role in a potential minority was a hot topic during the final days of the campaign. He insisted throughout that he was willing to work with either main party, al-

though the bitterness between him and NDP leader John Horgan was on display many times during Weaver’s four years as a lone Green MLA. An erroneous story appeared on a TV station website that described Weaver as preferring to work with the B.C. Liberals. Even after it was corrected, the claim raced through social media for days, fuelled by the fury of NDP supporters at the thought of the Greens propping up Clark. No matter how diplomatic Weaver can be, this is not a relationship that can work for long. Clark will be thanking her lucky stars that she made numerous outreach efforts to Weaver. She embraced his call for changes to protect women on university campuses, and on the eve of the election she adopted Weaver’s suggestion that women can’t be

required to wear high heels to work. But this is not a stable relationship either. The B.C. Liberals are the party that approved the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion, which is set to start construction in the fall. Clark continues to push for LNG development, which Weaver derides as a “pipe dream” where the international energy market has passed B.C. by. And this is where the instability of the election result begins to weigh heavily. Final investment decisions for major projects, notably Pacific Northwest LNG at Prince Rupert, hang in the balance. Clark could call the legislature back in July to pass the budget that was presented in February. Its signature policy is to roll back Medical Services Plan premiums by half, a measure that the NDP supports and that may well satisfy

Weaver’s long-standing call to get rid of MSP. What price would the Greens demand to support the B.C. Liberal budget? If Clark wants to hang onto power, her carbon tax “freeze” may have to undergo a rapid spring thaw.

Time to give credit to health minister I have publicly criticized the health ministry on numerous occasions over the last three years concerning senior care in B.C. And I have encouraged everyone to raise their voices against senior neglect to a ministry that appeared to have little concern for their welfare. As eager as I was to condemn, I will now, with great pleasure, give credit to Terry Lake for acknowledging our concerns in several ways. His first step was the appointment of a senior advocate with no restrictions on publicly reporting the ugly truth. And now that the key factors responsible for the inadequate level of care have been identified by her excellent research, Mr. Lake has committed the ministry to an action plan that addresses the issues with the government budget increase for senior care. In my opinion, lack of

staff, training and accountability for health authority and facility performance were the key issues. The action plan will be making changes to improve of all of them such as: health authorities will be required to increase hours per resident day through an agreement with the ministry that will be monitored with annual reports; changes to improve existing residential care service

models; develop training and skill set requirements to provide better care of seniors with dementia issues; changes in monitoring plans. Increased oversight of health authority performance will bring about an obligation to enforce facility compliance with improved policies. The health authorities will be held more accountable than ever before to ensure that senior facilities provide quality care.

Rescheduled AGM

And the plan makes a commitment for many of these improvements within the next year, which will be monitored for implementation by the senior advocates office. In all fairness, I will now thank Mr. Lake for his efforts on behalf of our seniors. Judy Galley

Boil water advisory issued for Sorrento Tracy Hughes Salmon Arm Observer

A boil water advisory for the Sorrento water system issued by the Columbia Shuswap Regional District on Wednesday, May 3 is still in effect. High turbidity levels, which is cloudiness due to suspended sediment, have been detected in the Sorrento Water System’s drinking water supply. High turbidity levels may occur in surface water sources due to seasonal weather changes causing excessive surface runoff, flooding or lake turnover.

HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY! We honor all the mothers, grandmothers, great-grandmothers and great-greatgrandmothers! We wish you God’s best. Origins. Mother’s Day was first celebrated in 1908 at St. Andrews Methodist Church, Gratton, West Virginia, by Anna Jarvis in memory of her mother. Anna’s efforts for an official national day of celebration, became a reality in 1914, when U.S. President Woodrow Wilson signed a declaration making the 2nd Sunday in May Mother’s Day. Over 40 countries celebrate Mother’s Day today. A tribute. “Thank you, Mom, for giving me a life to live! You helped me to walk and talk. Your kiss made bruises and hurts better. Thanks for supporting my dreams when life was hard. I see the value of doing homework and keeping my promises. Today I understand the sacrifices you made. From you I learned to care about family, to honor God and to respect authority. My daily chores prepared me for getting a job and working for my pay cheque. You loved me even when I threw up, broke your favorite vase, or caused you grief in my teens. Your boundaries and timely warnings kept me out of trouble and made me a better person. Some of your best gifts, Mom? Your smile made any day better! Love and respect for dad when one of you messed up with the other. (I always knew when it happened!) Working and preparing for family visits and happy memories. Your faith in God. I wish I could pray like you did. You listened.” Your Mother and you. Forgive her. Drop your resentments. It’s a Mother’s Day gift for both of you. Write her a letter. Do a one-on-one visit. Mother is gone? Treat a grandma or aunt or a mother without family here. ANY day! Think about it! All of us entered this world through our mother’s birth canal. Small and helpless, we took our first breath – and cried! If only we could remember that moment! Our perspective would be so different about ourselves and life. Right?

Study looks at governance in South Shuswap region Electoral Area C of the Columbia Shuswap Regional District is currently undergoing a governance study. While this governance study is not an incorporation study, the results should indicate whether a second phase of the study should be undertaken to explore other options in governance. These could include exploring the benefits and pitfalls of incorporation. Exploring other governance models does not include just incorporation; there could be other options such as redrawing the area lines and adding more area directors to represent this region. There

could be a number of initiatives to explore. Residents of Area C should be referring to the CSRD website www.csrd.bc.ca in order to familiarize themselves with the governance study and complete the online survey allowing residents to provide feedback. The public’s input on the governance study will simply indicate one way or another whether the second phase of this process be explored, one that could include gathering the data and facts on what the actual costs would be if incorporated as opposed to remaining as is. The second phase could

also explore another governance model for the area other than incorporation. Some key points to consider when reading the study and taking the online survey. Decision making - Is it fair and equitable? Under the current governance model, Area C is the largest in population and tax dollars collected. There is one CSRD director, Paul Demenok, representing the area’s interests at the board table. Demenok, who represents 8,000 residents, has the same say and influence as another CSRD director at the table who may repre-

sent just over 500 residents. Area autonomy Some area residents have voiced concerns about Area C losing governance autonomy when decisions are made at the large board table. Return for dollars Area C contributes a significant amount of monies towards local and provincial taxes. Some have expressed that the area is not getting enough return for tax dollars, especially when it comes to road upgrades and maintenance. Lack of Opportunity Others have ex-

It didn’t seem to matter how unappealing the food or the state of my appetite, because the habit was not related to hunger, but my aversion to food wastage. Luckily, I discovered a way to reconcile this habit by reframing the

situation: composting. Suddenly, unwanted food scraps were not filling my garbage can, heading for a landfill. Instead, they were being transformed into valuable nitrogen, enriching my garden soil. Currently, it is estimated that over 30 per cent of the material entering our landfills is organic, compostable materials. The slow, anaerobic break down of organics in a land-

fill releases methane, a greenhouse gas, into our atmosphere. The aerobic breakdown that happens in your home composter does not. Backyard composting not only reduces greenhouse gases and garbage, it saves you money on buying fertilizers or manure. To work effectively, composts do need some attention, making sure you have a mix of carbon (dead leaves/ grasss), nitrogen (food waste), oxygen and water. Luckily, the CSRD has some great resources on giving your com-

post some love on their website: http://www. csrd.bc.ca/services/ solid-waste-recycling/ composting-information. On this site, you can even order your own backyard composter for $40. If you don’t have a garden, there are other options. Vermicomposting, or composting with worms is an option. Off-site composting is another option that has already started in Salmon Arm. Many businesses and organizations are sending their food waste to be composted at larger-scale sites, and curbside collection is in our

near future. Composting is a great way to transform unwanted food scraps into a useful product. It can preserve valuable space in our landfills, and provide a home for unwanted calories on your plate. Need compost for your garden? The CSRD sells this yard and garden waste compost, Kickin’ Compost, which has been tested and meets all health and safety parameters, at the landfill. -Serena Caner is a registered dietician who works at Shuswap Lake General Hospital.

South Shuswap crawls with culture For anyone who has ever thought that the Shuswap could not compete with other arts and cultural meccas in the province such as Salt Spring Island, think again. The South Shuswap includes a number of distinct communities of Sorrento, Blind Bay, Notch Hill, Eagle Bay, White Lake, Wild Rose Bay, Sunnybrae, Tappen and Skimikin. “Residents are proud of their own separate areas and are eager to share their community identity or flavour with residents and tourists to the South Shuswap, says Karen Brown, administrator of the Arts Council of the South Shuswap, which was formed in 2014 to promote and support the arts in all its forms in this region and has collaborated on a new arts-based culture crawl happening over the May long weekend. “We have a number of highly talented visual artists, artisans, musicians, historical storytellers as well as an abundance of First Nations artwork and Aboriginal cultural experiences that we’d love to present to the public,” Brown says. “No other event in the Shuswap is quite like it so we are very excited to see this community collaboration come to fruition this May Long Weekend.” Live music: The culture crawl will include three nights of amazing live music at the “Hall Crawl.” On Friday night, see Chicken Like Birds, Saturday night Sons of Bitumen and Sunday night Margit Sky Project playing for the public out of Sunnybrae and Carlin Halls. All concerts are $10 and tickets are available locally at Steamers or at the door of each concert. Artist installation reveal: Local artists Melissa Nasby and Lynn Erin created a permanent fibre art installatio, “A Journey Begins,” in the Arts Council studios. The project was part of an

arts-based community development initiative with a grant from the BC Arts Council. An official unveiling to the public will coincide with a wine and cheese reception and Justin Maas exhibit. “The incredibly gifted Justin Maas, a member of the Federation of Canadian artists, will present an exhibit at the Arts Council studios, 4051 Myers Frontage Rd. in the lower level of Carlin Hall,” says Brown. “Local wineries will be on site to offer tastings.” Artwork: Blind Bay Painters will host a show & sale at the Reedman Gallery in Blind Bay Hall on Saturday and Sunday May 19 and 20. This is a talented group of local artists who showcase their work regularly out of Reedman. Artisan collective: The new Shuswap Artisan Market, located next to Lighthouse Market, will host its grand opening on Saturday, May 20, opening at 10 a.m. Expect to fall in love and take away the works of many local artists and artisans in the areas of pottery, fibre art, 2D art, jewelry, clothing, recycled furniture, rustic signs and more. The collective will be open 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. all weekend. Aboriginal art & cultural tours: Quaaout

The Amazing Race 4H-style comes to street fest Event will take place downtown Saturday. The Junior 4-H Council, as part of the Salty Dog Races in Salmon Arm on May 13, are organizing an Amazing Race for any area kids who are between the ages of 9 and 18. Organizer Joy de Vos shares the 4-H Amazing Race will take place on Saturday, May 13, at 11:30 a.m. till 1:30 p.m in the downtown business area, in conjunction with the Salty Dog Street Festival. The kids will be trav-

eling in teams of four. They will be traveling on foot. “We hope that this will be a fun, educational, and engaging experience for all,” de Vos says. She explains there will be 15 identified locations that children must find with clues given. Once at these stations, they’ll be asked to answer two questions. The first will have something to do with either agriculture or 4-H and the second

will have to do with the history of Canada or Salmon Arm. At least six of the locations will have an activity that the teams of four kids will come to and participate in. Their hope is to engage youth in team building leadership roles and teach them a little history and a little bit of information on 4-H and agriculture. Due to safety issues, the parameters of their traveling areas will be

kept to a minimum. Their goal is to encourage at least 150 participants in celebration of the Canada 150 initiatives. It is expected that there could be more than 200 kids participating, they will register at 10 a.m. on morning of Saturday, May 13th at the 4-H Ambassador’s booth set-up on Hudson and Alexander area.

Launching into Shuswap Barb Brouwer Salmon Arm Observer

From primordial soup to lush landscapes and diverse wildlife and human populations, environmentalist Jim Cooperman’s Everything Shuswap: A Geographic Handbook Volume 1, is a tell-all tale of the region. Long in the making, the launch will take place at the Nexus at First United Church at 7 p.m. Wednesday, May 17. “This will be a gala affair with live music, speakers, slides and a reading, followed by complimentary wine and cheese and other refreshments,” says Cooperman. The event will feature local three singer-songwriters – Aimie Law, Megan Abel and Ruby Bruce plus jazz with Jake McIntyre-Paul and friends and Sylvain Vallee on piano. Not just an engrossing read, Everythng Shuswap’s author is gifting the valuable journal to School District #83 as a resource for teachers and students. As well, all proceeds from the sale of the book will be donated to the school district’s outdoor learning program. Travel back in time to see how geological forces created the Shuswap and its many watercourses; learn about the ecology and limnology of the Shuswap, life for our First Nations neighbours, settlement and resources. Everything Shuswap is the result of a unique collaboration between Cooperman, School District #83 and Shuswap Press, and supported by local governments, businesses, organizations and individuals. “It’s been great working with Jim… I appreciate the time and effort he has put into this,” says School District #83 superintendent Glenn Borthistle, who also acknowledges the work of Louise Wallace Richmond of Playfort Publish-

ing. “The exciting things for this is that our teachers will have the resource and also the proceeds will go to outdoor education.” Borthistle says teachers are on-side and many of the schools in the district now have outdoor classrooms. Funds from Everything Shuswap will further enable students to explore by going on field trips, including to North Fork Wild Conservation Park - the result of another exciting collaboration. ”It’s a beautiful volume that really does a great job of describing a number of components of our region and a tremendous resource for us as we implement the new curriculum,” he adds. Equally enthusiastic about the book is Shuswap Trail Alliance executive director Phil McIntyre Paul, who extols the many educational aspects of Everything Shuswap and calls it the perfect complement to the Shuswap Trail Guide. His advice? Read the book to learn about the trails, then take the trail guide out on

Viewpoint

Shuswap’s economy tied in with forest industry MAYOR’S REPORT Nancy Cooper I recently had the pleasure of speaking at the Council of Forest Industries (COFI) conference in Vancouver. It was such an honour to be able to share what is happening here in Salmon Arm with the 625 attendees. Not everyone was aware of our proud history or the amazing things that are going on right now. I realized that sometimes it’s ok to brag because this is a story I need to share! Looking back, the story of Salmon Arm is intertwined with the development of British Columbia’s forest sector. We have some innovative and long standing businesses who have continued to be leaders in the forest industry. These include, Canoe Forest Products plywood manufacturing, our largest local employer, recently celebrating their 50th anniversary! In addition, Salmon Arm is home to a unique cluster of forestry consulting firms that support Canada’s forest sector. These companies include the head office for Forsite Consulting which has 11 locations. Perhaps the most unique aspect of forestry in Salmon Arm is our history related to the Sawmill Equipment Manufacturing industry. The formation of the local industry grew from a small blacksmith

shop “Newnes” (now USNR), established over a hundred years ago in the downtown. In the 1980s, software technology entered the forest industry’s realm, once again contributing to business growth in Salmon Arm. Optimization scanners and controls automation became key components that pushed machinery to run faster and to process wood more accurately and efficiently than any human could do manually. Sawmill machinery became high-tech and the increased demand for professionals in the engineering field opened up a range of employment opportunities. Since that time, the high-tech forestry

sub-sector continues to be an integral driver of our economy and an important community mainstay. Salmon Arm can proudly say we are home to Western Canada’s largest hub

Salmon Arm can proudly say we are home to Western Canada’s largest hub of companies that specialize in the design and manufacturing of automated forestry equipment.

of companies that specialize in the design and manufacturing of automated forestry equipment. This strong foundation continues to attract skilled professionals and entrepre-

neurial newcomers. We can be extremely proud of all our tech and manufacturing companies! So yes, it was good to brag about Salmon Arm’s local businesses at the COFI convention. As you can see our economy is tied to forestry and it is for this reason that the current climate of uncertainty surrounding softwood lumber is of concern to our community. The softwood lumber agreement was heavily discussed at the COFI conference and while they expect there will be long and difficult negotiations, it good to note we’ve been here before and reached an agreement. Lastly, when I was questioned about new cut-blocks I advised the COFI audience that residents in an area of any proposed cut-block must be consulted. -Nancy Cooper is the mayor of Salmon Arm.

WineBox Sweets wins Launch-A-Preneur competition. Leah Blain Observer contributor

What began as a fun family experiment took Teena Gudjonson’s WineBox Sweets to first place in the fourth season of Launch-A-Preneur. Wine Box Sweets was the recipient of more than $15,000 worth of prizes and services. WineBox Sweets, which produces real wine and alcohol-infused gummies, also won the People’s Choice Award. “This is a special event,” said Master of Ceremonies James Grieve at the beginning of the evening. “Not in Penticton or Kamloops, or Kelowna or Vancouver do they hold an event like this.” The competition, designed by Enactus students of Okanagan College, Community Futures Shuswap and the Salmon Arm Economic Development Society, is strongly supported by local businesses that provide prizes, services and mentoring. Ten teams were competing but 26 teams took part in the program which included weeks of mentorship from local business leaders. The other competing teams were: Sandra Proulx/Chaga Borea, Sarah Lecouffe Axtell and Jedidiah Wiebe/ Elderberry Grove, Brayden Harder/Hard-

er Concrete, Kate and Jason Spielman/Kate’s Smoothies, Jenna and Adam Meikle/Meikle Studios, Chris Cousens/On Point Concrete Forming Ltd., Sarah Froud and Toni Froud/Rocking Wheels, Sarah Bradshaw and Misty Berkholtz/Wise Woman Seeds, Roxy Roth and Spencer Keating/ Shuswap Event. These teams made a two-minute pitch to the judges who then decided on the four finalists. Grieve told the audience the judges had a hard time due to the calibre of the presentations. “It’s the toughest I’ve ever seen, they’re splitting hairs on quarter points.” Elderberry Grove, On Point Concrete, Shuswap Event and WineBox Sweets were the four teams that went on to the finals. They each had to make a 10-minute pitch and answer questions from

es and services. Gudjonson, in the midst of hugs and congratulations, was still in a little shock over her win. “I’m so excited and surprised. I just wanted to learn about business, I never expected to win.”

In between presentations, Rob Marshall (Community Futures Shuswap), Laureen Shannon (Enactus), and Lana Fitt (Salmon Arm Economic Development Society) were a popular part of the evening’s entertainment as they took to the big screen in short videos with past Launch-A-Preneur participants. On Point Concrete won the Green Initia-

tive Award for being the most environmentally friendly. The prize comes with a $1,228 worth of prizes and services. The real winner of fourth place this year was Elderberry Grove, which comes with a prize package value of over $1,000. Third place, valued at $3,057, was awarded to On Point Concrete. Shuswap Event took second, winning $11,287 worth of priz-

Breakfast in bed for special occasions Few gestures of affection create such a stir as presenting a loved one with breakfast in bed. On special occasions, treating a loved one to breakfast in bed can get their big day off on the right foot. The success of such an endeavor often boils down to following a few tips. * The surprise of breakfast in bed is almost as important as the presentation. Make sure everyone keeps the secret and rises early enough to prepare the meal. Time the meal so that it is ready when the person of honor typically awakes. * Banging and clanking in the kitchen does not a relaxing morning make, so select an easily prepared dish to cut back on the noise. Store- or restaurant-bought foods can still make a nice impression if they are dressed up. * Adult supervision is a must when young kids are cooking. This ensures everything goes safely and smoothly while still giving kids the chance to pitch in. * Delegate some tasks to kids. A young child may be able to arrange flowers in a vase, while a slightly older child may be more adept at slicing toast or helping to flip pancakes. The breakfast should be a joint effort so that the person treated to breakfast knows everyone involved cared enough to pitch in. * Choose easy-toeat foods. Crumbly and messy foods are not the ideal fit for breakfast in bed. No one wants to spill food onto pillows or go to bed the next evening to find a pile of crumbs beneath the sheets. Finger foods or bitesized items that can be popped into the mouth will not make much of a mess. Crepes may be a nice alternative to messier muffins. Serve coffee or tea in a cup

with a lid to help prevent spills. * Invest in a food tray to make serving breakfast in bed that much easier. A bedside table or nightstand also can fit the bill. * Add small details to make the breakfast even more special. Use heartor flowershaped cookie cutters to add whimsy to everything from pancakes to fruit. A hand-written card or poem is another nice touch. Breakfast in bed is a special treat for any family member. Employing a few strategies for success can make it that much more special.. Research local parks or hiking trails and plan a day where you both commune with nature. Or even head to the seaside for a relaxing day. Explore the landscape and be on the lookout for birds and washed up treasure from the sea. Plan to finish the day with a homemade, picnic lunch.

Many modern families are spread out across the country if not the globe. Some people move away from family to further their careers, while others are called upon to care for others. Children may separate from their parents to witness new travel experiences. Military service may call individuals away from home as well. Distance can make it challenging to spend time together for major holidays and other special occasions — like Mother’s Day. But Mother’s Day can still be special even if Mom lives hundreds or thousands of miles away.

many people now utilize various forms of digital communication. Someone who lives across different time zones can talk through texting or the various social media avenues available on computers, phones and tablets. Video apps like Skype and FaceTime enable you to video chat with others in real time. Come Mother’s Day, connect with mom via such apps so you can watch her open up her gifts. Reconnect with home If Mom is the one

who ventured from home, help her to reconnect with her hometown or another place she feels attached to. Ship her some favorite regional foods that can only be bought in town. Make a photo or video montage of places of interest in town. These little touches of home can mean the world to her. Create a special day Even if you do not live near your mother, you can still plan a fun day for her in her town. Make reserva-

tions for a spa, hair salon or other sources of pampering and surprise her with all the details. Treat her to the ultimate surprise If possible, make a surprise visit this Mother’s Day. Coordinate the plan with your father or another relative and then enjoy seeing her eyes light up when you arrive. With a little creativity, even families separated by geography can share the magic of Mother’s Day together.

Embrace technology Technology helps break down some of the barriers created by distance. While phone calls were once the way to keep in touch,

INFORMATION DESIGNED TO PROMOTE AND ENHANCE YOUR WELLBEING

Healthy Wine is a real thing FAMILY CHIROPRACTIC Dr. Warren Gage Last week I discussed the benefits of intermittent fasting and paleo and ketogenic diets. What I realize is that any diet that is overly restrictive can be followed in the short-term; however, can be very difficult to maintain in the long-term if all of life’s little pleasures are taken away. When Alcohol is completely prohibited in a specific diet, many people report that it is one of the main reasons why they are not able to continue. For those that cannot bear the idea of having to give up a bit of wine with a meal, rest assured there is a solution! I would like to discuss more healthy options this week. I recently came across

an interview with Todd White who is the owner of Dry Farm Wines, a company that sells healthier wines. What is a healthy wine? Healthy wines like any healthy food, are those that are produced naturally using traditional methods and are described as living, biodynamic wines. These wines are not produced in North America and have been very popular in Europe following the explosion of the healthy wine movement. Biodynamic wines are organic and are produced using traditional methods that are thousands of years old. The interesting thing about Biodynamic wines is that they tend to not

have the negative effects that most wines offer – namely high sugar and alcohol content and subsequently result in less headaches and sleepiness. Sugar and alcohol contents are reduced through the practice of not irrigating the vineyards. Something I did not realize is that in most of Europe, irrigation of vineyards is mostly outlawed because it causes wine grapes to produce far too much alcohol and sugar and greatly reduces the quality of the grape. When a grape comes from a dry-farmed vine that is 30-100 years old, it has a root system that reaches upwards of 50 feet down in search of water. This then leads to a higher character grape that has lower water content and less sugar, resulting in a lower alcohol content as well. Most of these wines are around 11% alcohol rather then the 14-17%

found in standard wines. Next, biodynamic wines do not contain any additives such as commercial yeast (that is usually genetically modified), sulfur dioxide used to kill natural yeasts (that leads to sulfites), or any of the other 75 or so additives and chemicals that are found in regular, commercially produced wines. Biodynamic wines are a cut above wines that are only certified organic because they also are produced through very strict farming practices that are natural and sustainable. The people caring for these ecosystems must be mindful of the interaction between the soil on the farm, the animals sustained by the plants supported by the soil and the grape vines grown in this environment. I have never admitted to being a wine connoisseur, but perhaps that is

because I have only tried the wrong types of wines. After some more research I discovered Dry Farm Wines does not ship to Canada, however looking on the internet I was surprised to actually find some Canadian producers of 100% organic and biodynamic wines. From Nova Scotia there are Lightfoot and Wolfville wineries, Ontario has Southbrook and Tawse wineries, and locally from Kelowna, Summerhill winery are all biodynamic wines. I am sure there are some readers who have been consuming these wines for years, but for the rest of us rookies, we can do our homework to find one more healthier alternative to our “old habits”. Dr. Warren Gage is a family wellness Chiropractor who can be reached at Harbourfront Family Chiropractic at (250) 803-0224.

Sustainable eating ideas for Earth Day (NC) With Earth Day around the corner it’s a good time to think about how the food we eat impacts our environment. Many of the reports predicting 2017 food trends put sustainable eating on the list of things we will be looking for the most this year. We talked to Sonya Fiorini, senior director of corporate social responsibility at Loblaw for her top tips on eating sustainably. Reduce your food waste. Accordingly to a

recent report, Canadians waste roughly $31 billion of food each year. Making a grocery list before shopping is an easy way to cut down on household food waste, but there are some other great ways to reduce the amount of food you throw out. “If you’re taking stock of your fridge and you think things are going to spoil before you can eat them, do some batch cooking and stock your freezer for later or try some food storage techniques like

pickling and canning,” says Fiorini. “Herb and vegetable tops can also be dried or frozen for future use as seasoning.” Choose sustainable seafood. Choosing seafood that comes from a sustainable source will help to ensure the livelihood of the species for future generations. “Many grocery stores carry a range of sustainable seafood, so look for the Marine Stewardship Council or Aquaculture Stewardship Council symbols on the

package or at the seafood counter,” says Fiorini. Eatlocal. Locally grown produce and meat don’t have as far to travel to your local grocery store. During peak growing season farmers’ markets are a great option and many grocery stores will have a wide variety of locally produced items. “Choosing food grown near you can help reduce your carbon foot print and puts dollars into your local economy.” Try alternative proteins.

Chase

Friday, May 12, 2017 Page A31

Pair of mudslides block road near St. Ives On Friday, May 5 at 4:52 p.m., Chase RCMP received a report of a large landslide on Squilax Anglemont Road near St. Ives in the North Shuswap. Police responded with the Anglemont Fire Department and determined that four people had been trapped between two landslides. Shuswap Search and Rescue was dispatched and were able to locate and transport the people to a safe area. Officials report that no

injuries were sustained by anyone involved. No more information about the people trapped has been released. The slides actually took place at the two-kilometre and three-kilometre marks on the Seymour Main Forest Service Road northeast of St. Ives in Electoral Area F. The forest service road remains closed in both directions northeast of St. Ives and will remain closed until further notice, according to the Colum-

bia Shuswap Regional District’s Shuswap Emergency Program. The CSRD has not received any indication from the Ministry of Forests Lands and Natural Resource Operations as to when the Seymour Main Forest Service Road will reopen. The ministry advised on Sunday, May 7 that an alternate vehicle route along the 1020 Blueberry Celista Forest Service Road is passable for residents of Seymour Arm if required.

The Seymour Main Forest Service road was closed Saturday, May 6 due to two mudslides in the area.

More flooding (Above) About 15 kilometres up Chase Creek on the Chase Falkland Road, water run-off from the storm, mixed with snow melt, was too much for the culvert. It became blocked by debris and overflowed over the roadway, undermining one lane of the road. (Below) Skimikin Road was closed May 7 just past the Turtle Valley Donkey Refuge due to a major road washout, as well as along the Squilax Turtle Valley Road near the intersection of Skimikin Road.

No bike ban on sidewalks

Businesses galore

Downtown subject to restrictions. Martha Wickett Salmon Arm Observer

Bicycles were on the minds of many on Tuesday. At its May 9 meeting, the Chase village council was considering the village’s Streets and Parking Amendment Bylaw, which governs a “skateboard, push scooter, bicycle or other wheeled implement except a wheelchair or similar necessary mobility implement” and their use on sidewalks downtown. A new amended bylaw would have restricted bicycles from all the sidewalks in Chase, not just downtown, but council rejected it. Chief administrative officer Joni Heinrich said council received a lot of feedback regarding the proposed changes. Some of the feedback came from the people who packed council chambers Tuesday. On a Chase-oriented Facebook page, one resident commented: “In today’s council meeting, our mayor and council made it

clear they will not be moving forward with it and from what I understood, they’ll be looking to change the original bylaw to suit our needs and safety.” Heinrich told the Market News that council will stick to the intent of the original bylaw, to restrict people between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. weekdays on the sidewalks downtown in the business core. “It’s saying, please, don’t ride your bike when people are going in and out of shops.” She said the language in the old bylaw will be revamped a little to reflect council’s intentions and address people’s concerns. “A little bit of wording in the bylaw makes it a little ambiguous as to whether you could push a bicycle beside you on downtown sidewalks. We’re going to change that language.” Anywhere but downtown during those hours, children will still be able to ride on sidewalks with parents helping them, she said, noting that’s what residents wanted.

Youth Exchange Day

The members of the Salmon Arm Rotary Club (aka as “the lunch club”) have been very busy the last few months raising money for local projects. Two successful fundraisers were held, with the proceeds used to support club projects including the elementary school lunch program, youth exchange and a new picnic shelter for Blackburn Park.

Anything Is Possible

Canada Day a blast Fireworks will be at Canoe Beach. The skies over Salmon Arm will be lit up for Canada’s 150th birthday. Canada 150 committee chair Louise Wallace Richmond confirmed the city is planning to have a 10-minute fireworks show held on a barge off Canoe Beach as part of an evening July 1 celebration. City council approved the budget for the Landmarks of Canada Community Picnic budget at Monday’s meeting. “It is all systems go,” says Wallace Richmond. The community picnic event is designed to take participants on a virtual visit across the

country, with stations representing each province and territory set up along the beach. “Because Canoe Beach is so long and spread out, the idea is to make Canoe Beach Canada from coast to coast. So you can stroll along and visit landmarks from New Brunswick or P.E.I. or Nunavut or Manitoba and at each stop there would be some cultural stations with things unique to those areas.” For example, there might be artwork depicting that area, or a musician playing regional favourites, and at each station there will be an oversized postcard for people to stop and take a selfie as they “journey across

the nation.” Wallace Richmond is also hoping the stations will attract former residents of the places, who might be able to meet other Salmon Arm residents with similar roots or connections. “I expect the Saskatchewan station to be really busy with all the former residents. It’s a way to re-connect with where we came from.” There will also be an area for participants to come together, listen to Canadian music, dance and have a sing-along, before the fireworks show at 10:20 p.m., exactly when night falls. Parking could be the biggest challenge at the site, so residents are encouraged to carpool.

Shopping locally is a great way to benefit your community and, in many instances, your bottom line. When consumers shop locally, they help stimulate their local economies, creating jobs for their neighbors by helping local businesses grow and thrive. Shopping locally also saves shoppers long trips to the mall that can waste expensive fuel, especially if consumers don’t find what they’re looking for.

ROSMER, LETA LOUISE Another angel winged her way to heaven on the afternoon of May 1st when Leta Louise Rosmer (Raffel) peacefully slipped away at Sutherland Hills Rest Home, Kelowna at the age of 102, with her daughter by her side. Leta was born January 10, 1915 in Essen, Germany to Anna and August Raffel. She emigrated with her family to Trochu, Alberta in 1928. In her late teens, she ventured out on her own, eventually settling in Vancouver, where she met and married Michael Rosmer on August 1, 1942. They moved to Salmon Arm in 1946 and started their own business, the Salmon Arm Machine Shop. Together with partners, Paul and Lita Spleiter, they expanded the business to include a VW dealership, which they continued to operate until their retirement. They had two children, Marlene and Ronald. Leta will be lovingly remembered by family and friends alike, for her hospitality, generosity, and sage advice. She warmly welcomed all visitors to her home and it was once said if the Queen came to visit, she would treat her the same as everyone else. Leta’s baking was legendary at home and at bake sales, and when grandson Michael showed an interest, she eagerly taught him cherished family recipes. Next to baking, Leta’s greatest passion was her flower garden. She could be found most evenings with hose in hand, watering and cultivating the most colourful flower beds and window boxes. Leta and Michael loved to entertain and hosted many boisterous parties in their downstairs rec room, which was decorated like a German beer hall. Leta was also part of a kaffeclutch group of women who met regularly for over 30 years. They celebrated each other’s birthdays, holidays and, in later years, survival of an afternoon of bowling. The Rosmer family were active members of St Joseph’s Catholic Church, where Leta was a member of the Catholic Women’s League for 69 years. She directed many church skits and nativity scenes. Long time parish priest Father Michael Byrne, was a regular dinner guest, and although considered to be like one of the family, Leta made it a point to show special respect by setting out for him a white linen napkin and the good silver. Leta and Michael travelled extensively around the world during retirement, enjoying new experiences well into their 80’s. Michael passed away in 2001 and six years later, Leta moved to Kelowna to be closer to her daughter. There, she continued to spread her sunshine by bringing laughter to both staff and residents with her sense of humour and bright smiles. She will be missed by many. The family thanks the management and staff at Sutherland Hills Rest Home for the exemplary care Leta received during her stay there and the attention paid to its requests and comfort. Leta was predeceased by her parents, Anna and August Raffel, her siblings, Hedwig, Karl, Helmut and Hans and her husband, Michael. She will be lovingly remembered by her children, Marlene (Ray) Cottrell of Kelowna and Ronald (Barbara) Rosmer of Hinton, AB, her grandsons, Michael, Jeffrey and Kevin Rosmer, her sister-in-law, Marcella Raffel and numerous nieces and nephews and their children. A funeral mass will be held at St Joseph’s Catholic Church in Salmon Arm on Thursday, May 11 at 1:30pm. There will be a viewing in the Church at 1:00pm. A reception will follow in the Church hall. Interment will be in Mt. Ida Cemetery in Salmon Arm. Condolences may be sent to Bowers Funeral Service at www.bowersfuneralservice.com. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Sutherland Hills Rest Home, 3081 Hall Road, Kelowna, B.C. V1W 2R5 or a charity of your choice.

LEO DIETZ October 26, 1928-April 30, 2017 Surrounded by his loving family, Leo Dietz passed away peacefully on Sunday, April 30th, 2017 at the age of 88. Leo was born in Forestburg, Alberta. As a young man he worked at the Eldorado Mines in Great Bear lake, N.W.T. On September 8, 1951 at the age of 23, he married his sweetheart Florence Beaudoin. Their lives together began in Edmonton, later moving on to Keremeos, Copper Mountain, Penticton, Alberta Beach and finally Canoe, B.C. where they decided to retire. Throughout his married life, Leo worked in the mines at Copper Mountain, in the automotive industry in Penticton, and as a carpenter at the Cross Cancer Hospital in Edmonton. His passion for hunting, fishing, gardening, wine making, storytelling and most of all carpentry is fondly remembered by all who knew him. He is survived by his wife Florence of 66 years, children Janice Ingham (Gene), Deryl Dietz, Shelly Halverson (Bruce), Murray Dietz, ten grandchildren, eleven great grandchildren, his sister Bea Bevercombe, brother Mel Dietz and several nieces and nephews. We thank each and everyone at Mt. Ida Mews, who very generously loved and cared for our dear Dad. Your compassion will be our comfort for many years to come. We will miss his mischievous smile, quick sense of humor and the love he shared with all who came into his life. There will be no funeral service at his request. Online condolences may be sent to the family through Leo’s obituary at www. bowersfuneralservice.com. Arrangements are in the care of Bowers Funeral Home and Crematorium, Salmon Arm.

JOHN EDWARD MANIFOLD Johnny was born October 12, 1950 in North Vancouver, BC to Janet and William Manifold. John left us April 26, 2017, aged 66, in Salmon Arm, BC. Gone before him were his brother Donny, father William and his mother Janet. Johnny leaves the love-ofhis life Patricia; son Marty; daughter Sandy (Blaine); stepchildren Candice, Matthew (Kim) and Christien (Robyn); grandchildren Astrid, Carson, Wyatt, Nate, Zach, Avie, Hayden, Ryder, Silas and Ella. He also leaves brothers Billy (Jean) and Robbie; sisters Barbara (Randy) and Dianne; and several nieces and nephews. John, after high school, joined the military where he acquired his trade as an electrician. He moved from Surrey to Tappen when his family was young. He was recently a member of the Tappen/Sunnybrae Volunteer Fire Department. John was definitely “one-of-a-kind”. He always found humour in every situation. It was a great way to cope with life. Whatever it was he managed to get through it by laughing at it and getting you to laugh. He took his fashion cues from no one—feeling “dressed to the nines” in his grey wool long john sweater and work boots. Most of all, John lived for his time with family and friends; boating and playing on the Shuswap, adventures with his buddies riding their Harleys or hunting; trips with “his Patricia”—canoeing, kayaking, fishing, family camping, happy hour around the campfire, good food and watching grandchildren enjoy themselves. He was a kind, compassionate and helpful friend with an infectious laugh and whistle. Many thanks to the “hands on” girls in Oncology at SLGH—Phyllis, Iris and Jean; our palliative care nurse Janine, our health care support team and first responders for their gentle care. Thanks also to our loving family and many wonderful, supportive friends. A Celebration of Life will be held later this spring. In lieu of gifts or flowers a donation in John’s name may be made to the Tappen/Sunnybrae Fire Department or Shuswap First Responders would be appreciated. John had a wonderful life and thanks all who made it so. Arrangements entrusted to Fischer’s Funeral Services & Crematorium Ltd., Salmon Arm (250) 8331129.

WILLIAM THOMAS NEWTON Mr. William Thomas Newton died peacefully at Shuswap Lake General Hospital on March 19, 2017 in Salmon Arm, BC at the age of 79. Bill is survived by his wife, Barbara; children, Brad, Kevin and Kent; grandchildren, Brooklyn, Kyle, Anthony and Amarys; and siblings, Dick, John and Dorothy. Bill was born on March 16, 1938 in Pincher Creek, AB. He married Barbara Jean Lightle in 1966. After moving his young family to Salmon Arm in 1969, Bill worked as a builder and land developer. In the 1970’s he built a rental building in the industrial park, which he operated right up until the point of his death. A service was held at Bowers Funeral Home, officiated by a very helpful and sympathetic, Craig Bolen. Bill will be missed around the dinner table, at his building in the industrial park, and time spent up at the cabin will feel a whole lot emptier without him. Online condolences may be sent to the family through William’s obituary at www. bowersfuneralservice.com. Arrangements are in the care of Bowers Funeral Home and Crematorium, Salmon Arm.

MURRAY LEE FRASER Feb. 6, 1955 - April 1, 2017 Murray, the son of Frank and Patricia Fraser, passed away peacefully, with family at his side at Marjory Willoughby Hospital in Kamloops, B.C. He was pre-deceased by a sister, Colleen Anne (1964). He is survived by brother Bill (Kelly) Fraser, children Carson (Shona) Fraser, Colleen (Mike) MacLaren, Brian (Sharon) Fraser, B. (Uncle Benny) King, along with grandchildren Anika and Jaycen Fraser, Kira and Taylor MacLaren, Brendan and Jadea Fraser, along with many aunts, uncles and cousins. Murray was a life-long resident of the Shuswap area. After working for Adams Lake Lumber, he joined his father who had the tug service on Adams Lake. When this business was sold he used his welding skills to open his own shop and was very successful at it. He was also an avid outdoorsman (hunting and fishing). Nothing relaxed him more than spending a weekend aboard his boat and cruising on Adams Lake with his very special companion Mary Stewart. Murray made friends easily and he will be missed by lifelong friends Robert Miller, Brian Dawson, Dan Nontell, Bruce Hudson and Tim Leduc. A Memorial service will be held at the Celista Hall at 4 p.m. on Sunday May 21, 2017.

Remembering Our Loved Ones

Dale Elwood Van Horne passed away peacefully at Shuswap Lake General Hospital at the age of 92. Born in Macoun Saskatchewan, Dale became use to working hard on the family farm during the depression and eagerly joined the Royal Canadian Navy before he was of legal age to do so. Once discharged from the Navy in 1945, Dale went to work assisting in providing for his family and soon found his passion in the trucking industry where he became one of the pioneers of the BC Line Drivers. Even though Dale never considered himself to be retired, he pulled his last trip in 1999 at the age of 75. Dale was a long-standing member of the Masons, belonging to the Milestone Lodge in Saskatchewan since 1947. Dale was known to everyone that he met as an extremely hard working, dedicated and honest man that would assist anyone at any time. Dale met a genuinely caring and special lady Doreen Bailey which he held in such high regard and they were married in 1951. Always a strong virtued and determined man of unmovable integrity, Dale worked hard to provide for his family while still enjoying time to speak at length with anyone he met and share his friendly humour. Dale is survived by his sons, Richard (Celinda) and Darrell (Chloe); sister Lois; nieces Lori and Elaine (Mark), Pat (Graeme), Helen (Stewart); grandchildren Colby (Nicholas), Jessica (Luc), Levi (Amber), Jacqueline, Kirsten and Carson and five great grandchildren along with many great nieces and nephews. Dale was predeceased by his parents Richard and Clara; wife Doreen; brothers, Dayton and Wayne and his daughter Beth. Dale will be dearly missed and lovingly remembered by all those that knew him. The family wishes to send a heartfelt thank you to Dr. Goldberg and his colleagues for their caring patience and assisting Dad to “have one more year to stay at home to enjoy his deck” several times. Many thanks also go to the staff at the Shuswap Lake General Hospital, Bastion Place and the local crews of the BC Ambulance Service. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the BC Cancer Society which Dale felt very passionate about. A celebration of life will be held in August in Salmon Arm. Online condolences may be sent to the family through Dale’s obituary at www. bowersfuneralservice.com. Arrangements are in the care of Bowers Funeral Home and Crematorium, Salmon Arm.

Enderby water woes continue The taps are still off for Enderby residents. Businesses and residents have been rallying since the city declared a state of local emergency due to an imminent loss of water Saturday, May 6. “Our community has done a good job of conservation and we will continue to urge that,” said Mayor Greg McCune. Residents and businesses west of the Bawtree Bridge are asked to take all steps to conserve water until further notice. The crisis arose because of high turbidity on the Shuswap River which led to a boil water advisory Friday, May 5, and a drinking water main being out of service since a break in April. The following steps should be taken by all businesses and residents immediately: • Eliminate all non-essential water usage entirely. • Use bottled water for consumption. • Limit essential water usage to the absolute bare minimum. To try and keep the water system running, trucks are hauling water from the river and pumping it into

the plant for treatment. “The combination of residents’ efforts and the pumping is buying us five or six days so we can get an alternate line installed,” said McCune, adding the boil water advisory could remain in place for a couple of weeks. Efforts are also underway to try and repair the water main permanently. As a result of conservation efforts, some businesses have closed

Police Week 2017

Salmon Arm Observer/Shuswap Market News

www.saobserver.net

How to show support for local police Police officers put their lives on the line every day they show up for work. But in spite of the sacrifices officers routinely make, their contributions often go unnoticed. Police officers’ jobs might be thankless, but that does not mean people cannot express their gratitude to the men and women who keep their communities safe. The following are a some ways to show support for the police officers who work hard to protect and serve your community. · Support police fundraisers. Police departments fundraisers support various causes. Some might aim to raise funds for sports programs designed to help local youth, while others might hope to raise money for the families of fallen officers. Whatever the motivation for the fundraiser, by supporting the event you are donating to a good cause and showing the police they and their efforts are being supported.

· Teach kids to respect police officers. Police officers have come under considerable scrutiny in recent years, and youngsters may not know how to respond to news stories that do not paint police officers in a positive light. Parents can show their support for police officers by teaching their kids to respect police at all times. Encourage children to come to you if they read or hear stories that depict police officers negatively so you can help them process the story and encourage them to maintain the respect they have for police officers. · Thank a police officer when given the opportunity. Though it seems simple, saying “Thank you” to police officers can reassure them that the communities they work so hard to protect support and appreciate their efforts. Thanking police officers may only take a few seconds, but such a gesture can help police officers better cope with the stress of their jobs.
