Demolished Tappen house set on fire

Debris burn produces black, acrid smoke, prompts complaints. Barb Brouwer Salmon Arm Observer

Responding to numerous 911 calls, Tappen-Sunnybrae firefighters had no trouble finding a fire at 1560 Vella Rd. in Tappen Thursday, May 11. Thick, black, acrid smoke laced with ash was clearly visible from the Trans-Canada Highway and surrounding area, drawing complaints of sore throats and burning eyes. Tappen-Sunnybrae Fire Chief Kyle Schneider said the department was called out at 7:49 a.m. and discovered a large, fully engulfed pile of debris.

He says a contractor had demolished an old house and set it on fire and was confused about where he got permission to do so. “He told me the house was empty but obviously it wasn’t; he was adding to the fire, other debris to it, making the fire bigger,” Schneider said. “We have been hearing from neighbours that they had been dumping other stuff in the house for the last few days – tires and all sorts of debris.” The fire chief says when he arrived at the Vella Road site, he told the contractor not to try to bury the fire with dirt and proceeded to direct

operations and call for the water tender from the White Lake Fire Department. “But he did just exactly that with another guy and an excavator and a bobcat,” Schneider says, noting he would not allow firefighters to approach the machines while they were being operated. “Eventually we got his attention and got him to stop.” Firefighters used water and foam to try to suppress the flames but Schneider says it was difficult because of the way the debris had been treated. “It was so crushed, it was tough to

get water into it when it was burning at the bottom, and his covering it just made it harder.” Unable to get to the core of the fire, Schneider says when the flames had been reduced and only white smoke was evident, the contractor was put on fire watch to make sure the fire did not spread and firefighters returned to the fire hall. Tappen-Sunnybrae firefighters were called back to the scene about 7 p.m. with additional water and manpower supplied by the White Lake Fire Department. Continued on A4

Fifty-nine cats seized Martha Wickett Salmon Arm Observer

Thin, dehydrated and suffering from eye infections, trauma and more. These are the conditions the BC SPCA used on May 16 to describe 59 cats seized from a property in Chase. According to the BC SPCA, the 47 adult cats and 12 kittens were being kept in an outdoor camper and a travel trailer and were suffering from a wide range of medical issues. “The cats were being kept in a filthy environment, with feces everywhere and high levels of ammonia from the urine,” says Kathy Woodward, senior animal protection officer for the BC SPCA. “There was dense mold in the trailer and camper, and the animals did not have access to food or water.” Concerns had been raised about the cats by Chase citizens more than two months earlier, but they remained on the property. Woodward said what happens after a complaint is reported to the SPCA, a constable goes out and if the owners are not there,

they have to post a notice at the property that they’ve been there and will be returning. “What often happens, from time of posting and arranging attendance again, they (the owners) have had time to drastically change the dynamics…” She said the owner was initially co-operate and did comply with some of the orders, but then fell back and things got worse. “When the constable who had the file went in, he could smell it had been bleached and all litter pans were cleaned. Unfortunately we have to post and work with them and give them the opportunity to fix it. When he stopped complying we were able to get a warrant.” Woodward said the file originated in Kamloops and was ultimately turned over to her team in the middle of April. Her area is the north and south Okanagan as well as Kamloops. “My team followed up and found he had not complied so we went forward with a warrant.” The owner had been ordered to provide food and water, more

The adult cats are currently being assessed and treated at SPCA branches in the Okanagan and Kootenays, and the emaciated kittens are under veterinary care. Woodward said this was an unusually large seizure of animals, in her experience. “This is the biggest cat warrant I’ve been involved in in our region and the conditions were pretty bad.” Asked if any of the animals will die from the neglect, she said the kittens are being monitored closely as they are in very poor

condition. She said the SPCA is hopeful all the cats will eventually be adopted. And why would anyone have 59 cats? “No one can ever answer that question. They just have them.” The SPCA will be recommending charges of animal cruelty. Woodward said the owner could theoretically receive up to a $5,000 fine and five years in jail, but that’s unlikely. The punishment will ultimately be decided by the courts, but the SPCA will ask that the owner be prohibited from owning animals.

For the record

An election story in the Shuswap Market News of Friday, May 12, incorrectly identified the Village of Chase as being in the Kamloops-North riding, rather than Kamloops South. In the Kamloops-South Thompson riding, that includes the Village of Chase, Liberal candidate Todd Stone was elected, tak-

ing 14,409 votes for 56.6 per cent of the total votes cast. NDP candidate Nancy Bepple took 21 per cent with 5,479 votes, Green candidate Donovan Cavers garnered 5,214 or 20 per cent of the total, Libertarian Jessica Bradshaw got 274, and the remaining 99 votes went to Beat Klossner, representative for the Communist Party of B.C.

also on scene early Thursday morning and called the BC Conservation Office when he saw the type of material in the fire, including appliances with Freon gas. “The CO has quite a few photos; they’re doing their own investigation and all of this will be taken into account,” Coubrough says.

The Ministry of Environment is providing the Conservation Office with technical support in terms of the damage the fire might have done to the environment. “We rely on their technical expertise to assist us,” he said, noting the Conservation Office works according regulations set out in the province’s Envi-

ronmental Management Act and penalties can be costly. “The maximum fine can be up to a $1 million or jail time; it depends on the severity of the damage to the environment.” Anyone who wishes to burn in the regional district should contact their local fire hall for information on where to get the necessary permit.

Fuel spilled into the Shuswap River Tuesday morning. Residents along the river, from about six kilometres east of Ashton Creek to Mara Lake, are advised to check their water for any signs of diesel fuel.

Fuel spills near river Richard Rolke Black Press

Action is being taken to ensure a fuel spill doesn’t taint Enderby’s drinking water. A tanker truck accident led to a fuel spill in Ashton Creek Tuesday at about 10:40 a.m. It’s unclear if the fuel has entered the river. The truck crashed in the 1400 block of Enderby Mabel Lake Road, spilling 4,090 litres of gasoline and 12,500 litres of diesel into a flooded field adjacent to the river. Interior Health is advising residents along the Shuswap River

from about six kilometres east of Ashton Creek to the mouth of the river at Mara Lake to be cautious and check their water for any signs of diesel fuel. “We are monitoring the situation,” said Tate Bengtson, the city’s chief administrative officer. While the community generally receives water from the river and a well, it is only using the well right now because of possible contamination in the river. “It’s a precautionary step,” said Bengtson. This incident comes just a few days after a

temporary water line was installed across the Bawtree Bridge to replace a line that broke in April. Bengtson says the temporary pipe has helped minimize the impact of the fuel spill. “If this was a week and a half ago, we would have turned off the intake and hoped the spill passed before the reservoirs drained.” Ministry of Environment and environmental consultants are responding to contain the spill. Interior Health will be monitoring this situation and provide updates as new information is available.

Balancing work and lifestyle

Balancing work and your personal life is a problem people have been fighting long before cellphones, the Internet and all our other current forms of communication. For example, the idea of pagers has been around since 1921, though they didn’t start to see real world use until 1949. Coincidentally, the term workaholic first appeared about the same time. According to the Oxford English Dictionary, its first known appearance came in 1947, in the Toronto Daily Star. There’s something Canada can be proud to have given the world, a word to describe a person who works compulsively at the expense of other pursuits. There is no doubt that ‘work-life balance’ is being discussed more and more. It’s likely the use of cellphones, Facebook, other social media and email accelerated the growth of this longstanding concern. According to an Insights West Poll, a majority of Canadians working full-time say they had to stay late at work over the past six months and more than a third report the office “following them” when they are with family or friends. A concept introduced by the French government makes a lot of sense. A recently passed bill allows workers the right to disconnect, to set specific hours on evenings and weekends when they should not send or answer emails. It’s an interesting concept, but you have to wonder if people would really take advantage of it. Concern about work-life balance is a real problem but, on the other hand, being a workaholic is also something of a badge of honour for some people. – Black Press

Good event for panners-to-be the Great outdoors James Murray Poet and ‘Bard of the Yukon,’ Robert W. Service, who wrote about the “men who moil for gold,” and Mark Twain’s character Mulberry Sellers (in his 1892 novel The American Claimant) who uttered the phrase, “there’s gold in them thar hills,” have inspired many a person to try their hand at panning for gold. Myself included. Back in the Gold Rush days, when prospectors used a gold pan to look for placer gold in streams, it was more often than not those who had the best panning technique and skill were the most successful. So if anyone is interested in watching some real goldpanners – professional gold panners – demonstrate their techniques and skills,

then come out to the annual BC Open Gold panning Championships, hosted by the Vernon Placer Miners Club, being held over the long weekend, May 19 to 21 at the Riverside RV Park in Enderby. It is a lot of fun and you might even see me participating in the Novice Category. Like I said, I am but a neophyte when it comes to panning. I have, however, taken a real shine, so to speak, to searching for the glittering metal, and try to pan whenever an opportunity presents itself. Any time I go stream fishing I take a gold pan along with me – but then again, when I go gold panning, I usually also take a fishing rod with me. My point being that

I am always prepared one way or the other. 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” 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 pan designed to help 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 light-weight 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 back pack and make a point of giving it a bang every now and then with my wading stick. 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 enough and thin enough 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 cracks and crevices in rocks.

You will definitely need waterproof footwear of some sort and extra clothing like rain wear that you may not use but wish you had when the weather gets damp. I carry both neoprene waterproof gloves and leather ranch gloves for digging around in the sand and gravel. 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. As far as techniques and skill, what better way to learn a few tricks of the trade than by watching the professionals at the BC Open Gold panning Championships this weekend in Enderby. See you there.

Canoe Forest Products is investigating what led to the sinking of one of its tug boats Monday afternoon off Ruckell Point in Shuswap Lake. The mill’s general manager, Marcello Angelozzi, confirmed Tuesday, May 16, that one of the mill’s diesel-fueled tugs had sunk the day prior in the Cape Horn area (north of Ruckell Point) where the company has a booming ground. He said there were no injuries involved, and the company has boomed off the area where the boat went down to contain any possible leakage of fuel. “We have some environmental groups that are involved in remediation and we’ve contained the area around the boat,” said Angelozzi, adding the boat is about 90 feet below the surface. “We’ve boomed that area and contained most of it, and any diesel that’s

The health authority is advising residents on the western arm of Shuswap Lake to be cautious and check their water for signs of diesel fuel (either

a sheen on the water surface or any smell). As an additional precautionary measure, people should avoid using the lake water if it smells or tastes like fuel. Diesel fuel can pose a health risk following ingestion, inhalation or skin absorption. The closest community to the area is St. Ives, about 10 kilometres to the southwest, which does not draw water from the lake. Angelozzi said the cause of the sinking

Angelozzi said plans are being made to salvage the vessel sometime over the next few days. “We’re currently making plans to recover the vessel with a crane,” said Angelozzi. “We’re just going through some of the details and ensuring we’re all set to do it safely and not lose any more of the volume of diesel in the boat.”

Weekend culture crawl kicks off with art exhibition

The Shuswap Lake Culture Crawl kicks off this Thursday as part of a weekend-long event in the South Shuswap. The Arts Council for the South Shuswap will present the work of Canadian Federation Artist, Justin Maas. Through the power of social media, his celebrity portrait work now circles the globe. His work is highly sought after by the Ford Motor Company and the Grammy Awards. “Great paintings and drawings speak to us in a way that words cannot,” says Maas, a prominent Canadian Federation Artist who calls the Shuswap home. Maas earned a degree in visual communications from the Alberta College of Art & Design and has worked full time as a professional illustrator, fine artist and graphic designer for nearly 20 years. He works primarily

Sorrento and Cedar Heights systems on boil-water advisories High turbidity levels have been detected in the drinking water supply of both the Sorrento and Cedar Heights water systems. High turbidity (cloudiness) levels may occur in surface water sources due to seasonal weather changes causing excessive surface runoff, flooding or lake

turnover. A high turbidity level may impair the effectiveness of the disinfection treatment system. If disinfection is impaired, disease-causing micro-organisms may escape into the water distribution system, resulting in an increase risk of intestinal illness.

The Columbia Shuswap Regional District and Interior Health recommend children, the elderly, people with weakened immune systems and anyone seeking additional protection drink boiled water or a safe alternative. For these at-risk populations, water intended

for drinking, washing fruits and vegetables, making beverages or ice, or brushing teeth should be boiled for one minute. Boiled water should then be refrigerated in a clean covered container. The CSRD will inform users once the boil water advisory has been removed.

What about environment? tic or any other obligation to answer his own question, it would be pretty difficult to imagine that as an avid outdoor recreationist (albeit one with a prevailing hunting and fishing emphasis), he wouldn’t be even a little bit curious about a possible answer to this urgent question. Historically-speaking, it definitely is difficult to identify any other culture as

wantonly destructive of nature and the environment as our own western version. Bill McKibben (2010), goes as far as describing us as a culture single-mindedly devoted to ‘running Genesis backwards’ – so that we’re ‘decreating’(nature) at a rampaging, unprecedented rate. How come? So, what about the environment, Hank?

Perhaps you could reference your lifelong experience outdoors and share your thoughts on what’s behind the public’s lack of concern for environmental problems, of which there are undeniably no foreseeable shortage. It’s a question we’ve long needed to ask ourselves – and answer.

Fire prohibition set for Friday Effective at noon on Friday, May 19, the size of open fires will be restricted in some parts of the Kamloops and Vernon Fire Centres to help prevent human-caused wildfires and protect the public. The prohibition does not ban campfires that are smaller than a half-metre high by a half-metre wide, and does not apply to cooking stoves that use gas, propane or briquettes. Anyone conducting Category 2 or Category 3 open burns in these areas must extinguish the fires by then. This prohibition will remain in effect until Oct. 15, 2017, or until further notice. It extends through the Shuswap, from Sicamous and

Salmon Arm south to Vernon, for elevations below 1,200 metres. Specifically, prohibited Category 2 and 3 burning activities will include: the burning of more than two open fires of any size at the same time; stubble or grass fires of any size over any area; the use of fireworks or burning barrels; and the use of binary exploding targets. The prohibition covers all B.C. parks, Crown lands and private lands in these areas, but does not apply within the boundaries of a local government that has forest fire protection bylaws in place and is serviced by a fire department.

1. Whether boating, floating, towing, paddling or SUPing, wear a lifejacket or PFD 2. Have a sober skipper! Never boat under the influence of alcohol or drugs 3. Be prepared for every outing on the water. Check your pre-departure checklist. 4. Be extra cautious around cold water, such as in early summer or diving more than a few feet below the surface. Cold water can disable you from re-surfacing. 5. Always use a spotter for tow sports 6. Watch for floating and partially sub-merged debris. The Shuswap is surrounded by forest, and logs and other debris may be in the water at all times of year.

a fan of the program. “This brought music and culture to us in the country, the rural area,” says Carmen. “The program is great, it has great instructors, and I’m amazed at how much music has become part of our lives. Our boys sing and play together.” “I’m just really proud,” says Troy. “You don’t realize what’s inside them until they do it. I’m happy they can sing and play, and they sing really, really well.” George is up first, playing Chilly Winds on his banjo. Then the boys do a duet, with Dayton on guitar and both singing, Down on the Corner. It’s a lovely rendition and their voices blend together beautifully. Next Dayton does his solo. “So it’s Mother’s Day and I want to do this song for my mom – it’s called Jailbreak.” The audience appreciates his joke. He goes on to play

With only minutes left before the evening’s entertainment begins, the excitement in the room is palpable. It’s the year end recital for FACES (Fine Arts Community Exploration in the Shuswap - a non-profit committee under the Arts Council for the South Shuswap), and children are running around in their costumes while parents and grandparents take their seats and pull out their cameras. The program is impressive, ranging from a ballet dance to Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake, to a local rendition of Justin Bieber’s Down to Earth, Canadian folk songs and an acro act that combines dance and gymnastics. Carmen and Troy Massey’s boys, Dayton, 14, and George, 11, will be playing later in the evening. The boys have been taking music lessons for a year and a half with FACES and Carmen is

The children’s choir rounds up the evening with their tribute to Canada, from a Newfoundland folksong to Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah. Some of the choir members couldn’t make the evening’s recital because some families have other traditions or plans on Mother’s Day. For most of the crowd, however, the timing is perfect. “It’s one of the best Mother’s Day presents,” says Carmen. “One of the best things my kids can do for me is play music, I love it.” Dayton thinks hav-

ing the year-end concert on Mother’s Day is a good idea, but for more pragmatic reasons. “She paid for all this and now we can show her what we’ve done.” The evening performance is just one of a very impressive list Carmen enjoyed on this special day. Besides the 100 dandelions her boys picked for her, she got breakfast, a new bike, new skis, bubbles….etc. It’s very possible she had the nicest mother’s day in the entire Shuswap, but Troy explains the reason. “Last year we forgot and we got in big trouble. We had no choice this year but to do lots.”

Team conquers stairclimb Work Lachlan Labere Eagle Valley News

Dan Roddick and Jessy Horsfield are in high spirits after having climbed to the top of the 10th tallest building in the country for a cause. On Sunday, May 7, the two Sicamous firefighters were in Calgary, where they completed this year’s annual Firefighter Stairclimb Challenge. As team “Time to Bail,” the two trecked up the 1,204 stairs (approximately 774 feet) of the Bow Building, while dressed in full firefighting gear, in 28 minutes. “We knew it was going to be difficult,” said Roddick. “We went in with a goal, obviously of completing it – we wanted to do it in under half an hour so we did that, we accomplished our goal.” The event raised $339,000 for Wellspring Calgary, a place that provides free programs and resources to

people who have been impacted by cancer and those who care for them. “The time and effort that each person and team put in was well worth the cause,” said Horsfield, who added the experience was everything she expected and more. While body temperatures rose during the climb, Roddick and Horsfield remained cool-headed and focused on reaching the top together. ”We weren’t focusing on our time, we just wanted to complete it,” said Horsfield. “We started as a team, we were going to end it as a team.” Also keeping Roddick going was a photo he kept with him of his grandfather who is now battling cancer. “I carried a picture of my grandfather on my helmet there for the whole thing… It was really a sense of pride I was able to do something like that for him,” said Roddick.

INFORMATION DESIGNED TO PROMOTE AND ENHANCE YOUR WELLBEING

Kids brains affected by their environment Have you ever heard or felt that “your kids have been put on this earth to test you to your limits”? While some days this may be true, if you understand a bit about brain function in children vs adults, you may be a bit more understanding during the trying times. I am writing about this topic this week because it is essential that all parents understand that the first seven years of a child’s life are the most important time for brain development. It has long been known that early childhood experiences will have a lasting effect on the rest of one’s adult life. Through the use of new scientific techniques, researchers are now discovering how and why this occurs. The latest genetic research is now showing that genes are not the most important determining factor of health and function. While genes contain information the body requires to survive and function, it is actually the environment – or rather our perception of our environment – that controls our genes to turn on or off. This newest science is called “epigenetics” which literally means “above genetics”. This new science is where the mind-body connection is being seen at

FAMILY CHIROPRACTIC Dr. Warren Gage the deepest levels. A newborn and young child’s brain operates mostly in theta and delta waves which are low, slow waves. Theta and delta waves are present during daydreaming, relaxation, and while feeling rather than thinking. Theta and delta are the predominant waves in a child’s brain until they reach the age of seven. Once they pass this age their brains shift to more adult-like function of the faster alpha and beta wave patterns. Every parent can think of instances when they have been running late and are super stressed trying to get out the door while frustrated at their young ones who seem to be walking around half asleep. It is their different brain waves that motivate them to stop and touch that rock on the ground rather than focus on the immediate task at hand. To simplify it, young kids feel, while adults think. So, when you as an adult come upon a new disaster the kids have created,

getting mad and asking “what were you thinking” will never help the situation. In fact, we cannot expect them to act rationally most of the time because they operate in the world of feelings. From zero to seven, children use these slower brain waves to figure out who they are and how they fit into the world – again by feeling. When they are in theta, those experiences go straight into the subconscious to form the person they will be as an adult. For parents, this means they need to feel as much love as possible, massive amounts of patience are needed from caregivers, and they need to feel a solid heart-felt connection. This will let their subconscious know they are safe, valued, capable, and are surrounded by people they can trust. Keeping kids out of the unsafe, fight or flight reaction is extremely important. When epigenetics tell a child’s genes they are safe, rest assured your sometimes “mind-melting” patience will create a highly functioning human in the years to come. A few grey hairs are worth the effort. Dr. Warren Gage is a family wellness Chiropractor who can be reached at Harbourfront Family Chiropractic at (250) 803-0224.

Create better-for-you brown bag lunches (NC) If your meals for work are starting to feel bland, try a Canadian secret for zipping up sandwiches – mustard. Homemade meals come to life with just a dash of the condiment. Mustard is a staple crop for Canadian farmers. We export it all around the world – to Europe, the United States and Asia. Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada researchers are also working with mustard growers and processors to find new uses for this hearty plant. For example, mustard is used in environmentally friendly pesticides, added to bio-diesel additives, and makes a great natural fertilizer. In the kitchen, try making a tasty dip to

pair with omega-3 rich salmon wraps. Salmon Lettuce Wraps with Grainy Mustard Mayonnaise Dip Prep time: 30 minutes Cook time: 15 minutes Serves: 4 Ingredients: • 1 can (184 g) salmon, drained • 1/4 cup (60 mL) coriander • 1 garlic clove, chopped • 1/2 onion, chopped • 2 tsp (10 mL) lemon juice • 1 tsp (5 mL) honey • 4 tsp (20 mL) fresh bread crumbs • ¼ cup (60 mL) mayo • 1 tsp (5 mL) lemon juice • 1 tbsp (15 mL) grainy mustard

• Salt and pepper, to taste • 12 iceberg lettuce leaves Directions: 1. Mix the first 7 ingredients in a bowl to make the salmon mixture. 2. In a medium-sized, non-stick pan, heat canola oil and fry salmon mixture for 5 minutes over medium heat. Place salmon mixture in the lettuce leaves and wrap. 3. In a small bowl, mix mayonnaise, lemon juice and grainy mustard. Season with salt and pepper. Use as a dipping sauce for the wraps. 4. Serve wraps with dipping sauce.

Proposal for land near Sunshore Golf Course The public will have a chance to learn more later this month about plans for the vacant land north and west of the Sunshore Golf Course. The Village of Chase Facebook page notes that Shawnessy Enterprises Ltd., owners of the vacant land, will be hosting an open house on Wednesday, May 31 at the Chase Community Hall from 6 to 8 p.m. “Shawnessy repre-

sentatives approached Village of Chase staff some time ago to understand what they would need to do to proceed with a development on this site. Village staff provided Shawnessy with information about the current zoning on the lands (land use regulations that currently exist), what the official community plan says about the lands for the future and what the process is to ask

council to consider changing the land use,” states the Facebook post. “Because of the expected interest and potential controversy relating to the development of this land (which is privately owned), village staff urged Shawnessy Enterprises to consult with the public about what is proposed for those lands before an application for land use change comes be-

fore council. To date, other than providing information and urging public consultation, village council has no affiliation with the property owners of this land. It was the Village of Chase who urged Shawnessy to ensure the public is consulted about the proposed development before a land use change application comes forward to council to consider.”

Viewpoint

The lighter side of life ShuSwap OuTdOOrS Hank Shelley It’s been quite a while since that phone rang in the fisheries office, in Salmon Arm, from a guy in a 22-storey office building in downtown Calgary, saying he saw a very large mud bear up near Albas on big Shuswap lake. He described the bear as large, dark brown, with a large tail, sitting on some large rocks. Well, I had to scratch my head on this one, as many years ago, with the old-time game warden, rumours did fly about a creature being a mud bear. I told the caller, it had to be a large adult otter, and that in shimmering bright sunlight, images appear quite large from a boat. He insisted it was the ‘real McCoy’ though. There’s always been Nessy the Loch Ness serpent, and of course Ogopogo on Okanagan Lake, which has been videotaped, and appears to be a large snake-like creature, with shaggy head moving along in the water. Wouldn’t it be something, if it was actually real? Many years ago, when CN tugs, the Okanagan #5 and the Pentona, barged rail cars full of fruit, down to Penticton, my father was a deckhand on both tugs. Rounding Squally point off Summerland, they always watched for the much-publicized creature, but had no luck spotting it. Back to Shuswap Lake, otters have always inhabited docks. A family enjoyed frolicking among the boats years ago at a small marina in Canoe. The owner’s old German shepherd and the otters got along fine. The new owners had a couple of Jack Russel terriers, and it didn’t take long till the otters showed who was boss. There was an

awful scrap, and the vet bill to patch up the wounds inflicted by the two adult otters was very large. Stories do arise now and then too, about very large sturgeon in the big lake. Similar to Okanagan Lake, it could be one or two fish following one another and creating the image of a creature. Otters being playful, reminds me of a couple of great stories told by a lady who used to work on the dock at Twin Anchors Marina in the channel at Sicamous. Winston their spaniel, would frolic among the ducks swimming about, chasing tossed bread chunks floating on the water. Finally frustrated, they

would swim over and grab Winston’s floppy ears, saying “enough is enough.” The lady’s husband would toss bits of fresh hamburger left on a houseboat to one large carp. When he banged the garbage can lid, the carp would come to the surface, and enjoy his meal, much to the dismay of the ducks. This large carp also enjoyed bread so he’d dive underneath the ducks, and grab their webbed feet. Then you had bobbing ducks. And then the family of otters got in on the act. The very large old bank beaver who lived nearby, came over and would grab the otters by the tail. For the story of the mud bear, it seems a bit far-fetched, but it seemed there never was a dull moment around the Twin Anchor docks and the creatures therein.

Wildlife and Fish: At a recent BC Wildlife meeting in Kamloops that Earl Bloom and I attended on behalf of the Salmon Arm Fish and Game club, we heard there is major change happening regarding big game animal seasons and harvest. Down the road, there will be shorter seasons and limited access. With so many ATV and 4x4 access, and large clear-cut log blocks, along with high predator numbers, animals have no place for escape. Aboriginal road blocks in the north for moose are creating tension and communal hunting are also issues affecting game populations. Fishing; Local and big lake fishing is picking up, and anglers are doing well. Give thanks to those helping in slide/flood relief. We are fortunate.

SJODIN, WALTER CORIE Walter Corie Sjodin passed away suddenly at his residence in Sicamous, BC on Sunday, May 7, 2017 at the age of 57 years. Born in Salmon Arm, BC on June 12, 1959, Corie has resided his lifetime in the Sicamous area, having worked a long career in various Sawmills. Health and a broken hip forced him into early retirement. He was predeceased by his father, Walter Stanley Sjodin, grandparents, Thelma and Walter Gustaf Sjodin, and Bob Garner. He leaves his mother, Dolly Sjodin; brothers and sister, Gus, Eric, Les, Lissa and Earl. A Memorial Tea will be held from the Sicamous Royal Canadian Legion on Sunday, May 21st at 1 p.m. On line condolences may be sent to Corie’s Family through his obituary at www.bowersfuneralservice. com Arrangements are in the care of Bowers Funeral Home and Crematorium, Salmon Arm. BRYCE, FAYE Faye Bryce of Sorrento, BC passed away peacefully at home on May 13 at the age of 72 surrounded by her family. Faye leaves behind her husband Gerry; daughters Jackie and Kathy; grandchildren Kevin, Kayla, Nathan and Morgan; and sisters Betty (Dean), Joan (Al) and many nieces and nephews. She was born in Saskatoon, SK on June 4, 1944 then moved to Abbotsford where she met her high school sweetheart, Gerry, at the age of 14 and last month they celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary. Faye taught school before they bought Shell gas stations. She then used her fantastic organizational skills to keep things running smoothly. She was always very involved with her kids, whether it be coaching their ball team or cheering from the sideline. The highlight for Faye was definitely her grandkids. She took great enjoyment in helping out wherever she could, taking them on trips and always being there for them. But it wasn’t just her 4 grandkids who would call her Grannie, she was known by many others that way as well. Her door was always open and there was always fresh cookies coming out of the oven when you came by. A celebration of her life will be held on Saturday, May 27 at 2:00 at St. Mary’s Church in Sorrento. Refreshments to follow at the Notch Hill Hall. In lieu of flowers a donation may be made to the cancer society. Online Condolences may be sent to Faye’s family through her obituary at www.bowersfuneralservice. com Arrangements are in the care of Bowers Funeral Home and Crematorium, Salmon Arm.

THERESA (TESS) ANNE TIPTON (nee Schable) Born in Cranbrook, BC on August 20, 1955, Tess was the youngest of four children. She attended Central Elementary School and enjoyed many adventures around Elizabeth Lake (aka The Swamp), Kimberley, and Fort Steele. After graduating from Mt. Baker High School, she moved to Trail, BC to follow in her mother’s footsteps, attending secretarial school. She returned to Cranbrook where she met the love of her life, Eric Tipton. Through their marriage, Tess gained a friend and sister in Colleen Gavin. Tess was introduced to married life by being moved to the remote wilds near Kaslo, BC. A few years later, Eric moved them to Eagle Bay where they built their first log home. They celebrated the birth of their daughter, Claire, three years later, followed by son, Les. Sadly, in 1989, Eric suddenly passed away. Tess resettled the family in Salmon Arm and her life’s focus became raising the two children. During the ensuing years, Tess found support and friendship through her religious affiliations and her deep faith in God. Finding herself an empty nester in the early 2000s, Tess followed her passion for reading by working at Bookingham Palace. She also travelled far and often to visit family, from the US to England to Dubai, and even Australia. With the goal of seeking more adventure and sunshine, Tess relocated to Kelowna. She dedicated many of her days to volunteering at the Kelowna Cancer Clinic. Her love of travel and the American Southwest led Tess to spend many winters exploring the beauty and culture of that area. The focus of her life changed yet again in 2014, with the birth of her grandson Simon, as she dedicated her time and energy to his happiness. On May 11, 2017, she passed away suddenly, surrounded by her family and friends, from unexpected complications caused by lymphoma. Tess was predeceased by her father, John; mother, Margaret; husband, Eric; and brother, Larry. She is survived by her daughter, Claire (Ab) Yanni and grandson Simon; son, Les (Patty) Tipton; brothers, Bill and Peter (Karen) Schable; and sister-in-laws, Corenne Schable and Colleen Gavin. Tess was a gatherer: she gathered friends and possessions, and was loyal to both. A Celebration of Life will be held in Kelowna Gospel Fellowship Church, 3714 Gordon Drive on Wednesday May 17, 2017 at 1 pm. Condolences can be sent directly to Claire (cyberclaire77@icloud.com) & Les (les.tipton@gmail. com) or c/o Tess Tipton #483-1255 Raymer Ave Kelowna, BC V1W 3L3 Arrangements are in the care of Bowers Funeral Home and Crematorium, Salmon Arm.

Everything to know about Everything Shuswap ShuSwap paSSion Jim Cooperman Sometimes it takes the prying questions of a reporter to help better understand one’s own motivations for taking on an enormous task. When a CBC producer asked why I decided to write Everything Shuswap, my first response was to explain the connection between environmental protection and improving public awareness of the bioregion. However, after more reflection, the deeper reason for the dedication to the

project stems from my desire to contribute to societal well-being. The Shuswap is renowned for its community volunteers who help make our region a better place to live. My contributions have always focused on areas where there is a gap, beginning with the years I spent doing local history research and writing, followed by my decades of environmental work. It was the book, Stein – The Way of the River by Michael McGonigle and Wendy Wick-

wire, that inspired me to form an effective local environmental organization in 1989 and eventually write about the Shuswap bioregion. Another spark was hearing too often the Shuswap referred to as part of the Okanagan, which continues to happen, including on CBC Radio. One of the goals of the book is to enhance the identity of the Shuswap provincially and nationally Another question from CBC –what my major challenge was in getting the book to press – prompted more reflection. Writing the columns and the additional text over the last 12 years to produce the

manuscript was a joy. The next step, to ensure the book would be authoritative, involved working with the many reviewers who graciously provided their time to provide valuable feedback that resulted in numerous rewrites. By far, the most onerous task was turning the manuscript into the proof, which first involved acquiring the hundreds of photos and maps from both local photographers and museums, as well as from distant museums that required filling out forms and arranging financial compensation. Acquiring and organizing the images was a challenge

that required writing the captions along with specific details about each museum and archives. Although the process to create the design and layout took longer than anticipated, it was a pleasure to work with Shuswap Press designer, Otto Pfannschmidt, who is a brilliant artist. Surprisingly, the final editing process was extremely intense and time-consuming, as typos continued to appear and many changes were made to improve the final version. The final stage will be the marketing, but given that Everything Shuswap is the first book about the

Our company has been providing quality timbers and beams to customers for over 30 years. In 1983, Alan and his wife, Kim returned to the family farm to raise their two children.

Iranian president trapped between two fires GLOBAL VIEWS Gwynne Dyer The six-week campaign is over, and 55 million Iranians will vote in the first round of the presidential election on Friday. Or rather, most of those 55 million people will vote, but many will not, because there is great disillusionment with President Hassan Rouhani’s promises to improve the economy – and therefore also with the international treaty on curbing Iran’s nuclear weapons ambitions that was supposed to bring back prosperity. Donald Trump (who calls the treaty “one of the worst deals ever signed”) is not alone in seeing it as a failure. Although Rouhani’s main challenger in this election, hardline cleric Ebrahim Raisi, does not formally reject the deal, his whole campaign is focused on the fact that the end of foreign economic sanctions did not bring Iranians the rapid economic relief that Rouhani had promised Iran has a big, middle-income economy with a large industrial sector, but largely because of those sanctions it has been in the doldrums for the past decade. Incomes have stagnated or fallen, youth unemployment is 26 percent, and many people have lost

faith in Rouhani. Ebrahim Raisi is capitalizing on this disillusionment by running a populist campaign promising “work and dignity.” He is thought to have the tacit backing of Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who is the final authority in Iran’s peculiar blend of democracy and theocracy. Khamenei has not given his public backing to any candidate

in this election (there are also two less wellknown candidates running for the presidency). It is generally assumed, however, that he supports Raisi, who is best known as one of the four Islamic judges who ordered the execution of thousands of political prisoners in 1988. As a result, Raisi is doing well with his target audiences, the poor, the devout and the ill-educated. If they turn out to vote in large numbers, while more urban, more sophisticated voters express their disappointment with Rouhani’s

failure to work miracles by staying home, it is entirely possible that he will beat Rouhani and become the next president. This would plunge the country’s relations with the West back into the deep freeze, but Raisi says he doesn’t care about that: Iran doesn’t need outside help, and his goal is to restore the values of the 1979 Islamic Revolution. But it certainly wouldn’t improve Iran’s prospects for prosperity, or the entire region’s prospects for peace. Rouhani is trapped between two fires in

this election. At home he faces a conservative backlash that condemns his opening to the West and (implicitly) his nuclear deal. And on election day the voters who might come out to support him are likely to hear Donald Trump just across the Gulf in Saudi Arabia, spouting anti-Iranian rhetoric to a summit meeting of Arab countries. Iran is no worse than many of America’s al-

lies in the region (and better than some) in its treatment of its own citizens. Yet it is routinely treated by U.S. administrations as a rogue state that poses a huge and unique threat to the peace of the Middle East. Why? Because it defied the United States and got away with it. The Iranian Revolution of 1979 overthrew Washington’s puppet ruler, the Shah of Iran, and the United

States has never forgiven it for that crime. Whereas by now Iranians have more or less forgiven the U.S. for the CIA-backed coup in 1953 that destroyed Iranian democracy and gave the Shah supreme power in the first place.
