Alert issued over high temperatures Forest fire risk in Salmon Arm already classified as extreme. Barb Brouwer salmon arm observer

Blue skies and high temperatures make for fabulous days at the beach. Unfortunately, they also create the perfect scenario for forest fires. As of Tuesday, Salmon Arm was already at extreme risk for wildfires and the rest of the Shuswap was in the high danger risk. On Wednesday morning, Environment Canada added a special weather alert advising that temperatures are going to get even higher. “Afternoon temperatures will rise a couple degrees each day this week,” reads the alert. “Daytime maximum

temperatures will reach the mid to upper 30’s Thursday through the weekend. Overnight conditions will also remain quite warm.” The heat combined with the warm and dry weather from June will increase the fire danger rating across much of southern B.C. Wind has also been a factor in driving up the fire risk, particularly on the southeast side of the community towards Vernon. Tracy Winnick, fire information officer with the Kamloops Fire Centre, says there has been discussion about imposing a campfire prohibition next week.

But fire officials continually re-evaluate the situation and will issue a ban on campfires earlier if the need arises. Environment Canada meteorologist Cindy Yu says after a long wet spring, June turned out to be a drier-than-normal month. “As far as June 4th you had the wettest spring on record, going to the second driest June,” she says. “You didn’t get a whole lot of precipitation in June.” Salmon Arm received 218.6 millimetres of rain in the three-month meteorological spring that is March through May, or 151 per cent of

normal, which is 144.7 mm. But the tables turned in June when the community received only 12.4 mm, which is only 19 per cent of the normal 65.7 mm for the month and a far cry from the 76.3 mm of rain that fell in May. And the current forecast is for sun and high temperatures, peaking at 36 C in Salmon Arm on Friday and Saturday, with no precipitation. There’s a trough of low pressure hanging over the Pacific and Alaska, says Yu, noting the jet stream has separated it from a larger low Continued on A4

Salmon Arm RCMP report that a man drowned in Shuswap Lake on the Canada Day long weekend. Police were called to a local campground on Sunday, July 2 where a 37-year-old resident of Surrey who was vacationing in the area had gone missing in the lake while swimming within a designated swimming area. A Salmon Arm Search and Rescue team was called in to conduct a shore search as the RCMP maintained a presence at the location overnight. Police report that on Monday, July 3, the RCMP Southeast District Underwater Recovery Team responded early in the morning and recovered the man’s body from the lake.

First floods, now fires

After a wildly wet spring that seemed to draw out for eternity, and floods that will go down in history, summer is coming in hot and heavy. It’s hard to believe that with all the water that has saturated the earth that a fire could even be a possibility. But the Canada Day long weekend in the Okanagan proves that fire season is well upon us. Firefighters in BX, Lumby and Oyama were kept busy Sunday with grass and wildfires. Luckily, the quick actions of residents and crews helped contain each of the blazes and nothing major transpired. But with all the extra growth that recent flooding has created, there is more fuel for fires out there – whether it’s in the bush or on the sides of the roads. Plus, summer is in full effect, with the next week showing nothing but hot and dry weather. Therefore, more caution is needed on our parts to reduce the risk. Carelessly discarded cigarette butts are a prime concern, and too often a culprit in fires, as are abandoned campfires and unprepared/illegal burning. While we can’t control lightning or other natural causes – we can all do our part to be responsible and urge responsible behaviour. Humans were responsible for causing more than half (or 566) of the 1,050 wildfires that started in 2016 – according to the BC Wildfire Service. So far this year, between April and July 2, there have already been 54 wildfires in the Kamloops region, burning 333 hectares. With the danger rating sitting between moderate and extreme – extra caution is needed to ensure we don’t have a volatile season. -Vernon Morning Star

heading for safer, quieter waters the great outdoors James Murray Summer is here in all its glory. Sunny days, warm temperatures and more people spending more time boating on the many lakes here in the Southern Interior. As people with power boats discover the lakes that I’ve enjoyed fishing for years, I find myself heading out to some of the smaller, more remote lakes this region has to offer. In large part because I wish to enjoy peace and quiet when I’m on the water, also, because I simply don’t want to have to deal with some of the yahoos who are allowed to get behind the controls of power boats and Sea-Doos. Years ago, the federal government instituted the Pleasure Craft Operator Card program that requires one to pass an exam before being entitled to operate a water craft. The problem is there’s no law against stupidity. I’ve had far too many close calls out on the water. I’ve come way too close to being

hit by a Sea-Doo running at full-throttle, or being swamped by the wake from a powerboat while sitting out on the lake, fishing in my little 12-foot fishing boat. On more than one occasion I’ve had someone in another boat cross over my fly line with the prop of their gas-powered motor. Whether they didn’t realize what they had done or simply didn’t care, I’ve had to replace several $60 and $70 lines. All you have to do is look behind you when you are in a powerboat to see that you are creating a wake, and, all you have to do is use a little common sense to figure out the wake from your boat will have an effect on a smaller (especially non-powered) watercraft. And I really don’t get how people can claim to not know when they are crossing over your line. People need to be aware of the effects of their actions out on the water. They need to watch out for the

safety of other watercraft, as well as watch their wake. By definition, wake of a boat is the wave of water resulting from the passage of the boat’s hull through the water. This wake, depending on the size and speed of a vessel, can cause serious problems for other smaller craft in a variety of ways. Like I said, I have come way too close to being swamped a number of times. A little less speed can make a world of difference to other boaters. When overtaking a slower-moving or stopped vessel in open water, do so with as much room as depth conditions allow. Be especially cautious of smaller vessels, such as canoes or kayaks which are less stable. Remember that when you are operating any powered vessel, you are not only responsible for the safety of your boat and all passengers onboard, you are also responsible for any injury to others or damage caused to other boats as well as personal property. Don’t even get me started on boaters with kids onboard. I mean, it drives me crazy when I see a boat load of people, several adults and several more kids, and

none of them are wearing life-jackets. Yes, I know that it is not mandatory to actually wear the life-jackets – it is only necessary that each person have a life-jacket onboard. Be that as it may, it only takes a matter of seconds for things to go desperately wrong. All I know is that when it comes to kids onboard any boat, it simply makes more sense to have kids wearing their life-jackets. Better to be safe than sorry. I’m not against people having fun out on the water. However, with more and more people spending time on our Interior lakes, there is an ever-increasing need for safety on the water. Safety concerns can be addressed to a large degree through laws and legislation, but indifference and stupidity, well that’s another thing altogether. I don’t have an answer for that, other than staying as far away from speed boats and Sea-Doos as I can. By the way, while you are reading this column, I’ll be up at a really nice little lake that a friend recently told me about where no one is allowed to use a gas-powered motor on their boat – where nobody will be able to bother me.

This handsome guy is 9 months old and sadly needs lots of socialization. He’d be suitable for a home who has worked with or is willing to work with feral cats. He’s made good progress with the people he trusts and will even lick our hands now and likes to play with string toys. Although he is very cautious and fearful of new people he does like other cats including his sister Paisley. Stripes still needs lots of work but if you are able to help him become a a great friend please come and meet him. He will be worth the effort for sure!

Work progresses in Electoral Area C DIRECTOR’S NOTES Paul Demenok It’s hard to believe that we’re halfway through 2017 already! With a number of key projects ongoing in Area C, a progress update is in order as follows: • Area C Governance Study – all open houses have been completed and the online survey is now closed. A big thank you goes to all who provided their input regarding our future governance. The final report and recommendations will be approved by the Governance Study Committee and will be reviewed by the Ministry of Community, Sport and Cultural Development and the CSRD Board. • Area C Parks Study – all open houses and input gathering is now complete. Our sincere thanks go to everyone who contributed to this extensive process. The Area C Parks Commission will review a proposed short list of

priority projects and will make recommendations as appropriate. • Shuswap Labour Market Study – this large and ambitious regional study is a collaborative effort involving Community Futures Shuswap, First Nations bands, the Métis community, City of Salmon Arm, CSRD Area C, Okanagan College and several area businesses and community organizations. The provincial Community Employer Partner Program funded this program under its Labour Market Partnership Funding program. The study objectives are to: – identify current labour market and human resources barriers and opportunities; – complete an analysis of these results with the community partners; – facilitate a community-led collaborative approach to develop a community-based implementation strategy. Many businesses and

residents are being interviewed to collect opinions and experiences and there is an online survey to provide your input. The survey can be accessed at www.beyourfuture. ca until July 29. All employers and employees in Area C are encouraged to complete the survey. Many thanks go out to the South Shuswap Chamber of Commerce for their contributions to this study. • A Regional Economic Development Plan – EDCD Consulting has been commissioned to research and develop a Regional Economic Development Plan for CSRD Areas C, D, E and F, and the District of Sicamous. This plan will guide economic development activities for the next three to five years by providing objectives and strategies ,as well as a set of actionable initiatives aimed at improving our local economy.

Antibiotics before two years and obesity FAMILY CHIROPRACTIC Dr. Warren Gage In North America obesity rates are rapidly rising. Obesity is a multi-faceted issue caused by obvious lifestyle habits such as lack of exercise and poor diets full of empty calorie sugar-free “foods”. However, researchers have recently added another cause of obesity and it is antibiotics use before 2 years of age. In a medical study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association Pediatrics, researchers looked at a large group of babies from 0-23 months of age and compared broad spectrum antibiotic use and obesi-

ty rates. The results were interesting. They found a direct correlation between a baby having antibiotics in the first 2 years of life and an increased rate of obesity later in life. The medical profession is beginning to catch up to the alternative health care field when it comes to understanding the importance of maintaining a healthy microbiome in the body. The microbiome is understood to be the population of bacteria that inhabit every person’s body, especially the digestive tract. It is well understood that the specific

“good bacteria” that live in everyone’s gut play a large role in immune function and new research is also finding the microbiome affects countless other health functions. It is understood that the makeup of the bacteria in the body greatly influence overall metabolism. The microbiome is also known to play an important role in the expressions of genes that influence energy production in the body. If the healthy balance of good bacteria is disrupted by giving antibiotics in early childhood, many negative health effects occur. With this information, parents must be cautious with their health care choices for their young ones. Antibiotics are the

gional director at Millborne Real Estate in Kingston, Ontario. Hamilton has helped dozens of empty nesters relocate from cites and tells clients to consider all their options before selecting a retirement property. “A rambling, century farmhouse in the country may appear idyllic, but it comes with hidden costs and challenges, including having to drive everywhere. Living in a new property in town is often a better

choice for people who have spent much of their lives surrounded by neighbours, who like the option of walking to conveniences and don’t want to be surprised by unexpected expenses.” Hamilton says new retirees often underestimate the importance of having a range of leisure options available to them. “When people are working, they dream about having hours of down time. But unless

they have a time-intensive hobby, they can get bored very quickly. City retirees are often happiest in communities that offer a range of activities like boating, biking and walking and that have a variety of places to socialize including a library, clubs, restaurants and coffee shops. If there is a theatre or playhouse it is an added bonus.” Hamilton recommends that people considering moving away from the city look for

most common pediatric prescription. In this study alone, 69% of the 65,000 youngsters included in the study had been given an average of 2.3 doses of antibiotics before 2 years of age. It is clear there is still a long ways to go in promoting a more conservative approach to childhood health care, but studies like this are helping to bring more awareness. Avoiding antibiotics use begins long before a child is susceptible to an infection. Parents must understand infections are not just bad luck, rather they only occur in susceptible hosts. There are many ways to ensure your children are not fertile grounds for invading bacteria. Breastfeeding for as long as possible is the very best way

Finding inspiration in Sunnybrae’s natural beauty Howard says laughing. “I didn’t know really how much effort that would be. Before the show, five paintings out of my stash sold so it left a big hole. I had to paint like a mad fiend.” Her two-week show, “Out My Front Door” opened on June 13. It has been a successful show with nine more paintings sold.

Leah Blain Observer contributor

The natural beauty of Sunnybrae has inspired three generations of Howard women – Senia Howard, Lois Howard McLean and now Maureen Howard. “We’d spend all summer at the lake. My grandmother lived on the same road I’m on now,” says Howard. “I have tons of her paintings on my wall, and my mom’s, and my own. It’s just that whole feeling of being surrounded by family.” Now a successful artist in her own right, Howard remembers her first painting lessons with her grandmother, Senia (nee Laitinen). “The first time I painted, I used her oil paints. We were on the beach. It was wonderful. My grandmother taught me to be observant of the world around me, to the shadows and the light.” This lesson has played an integral role

Charred meat dangerous for health HealtHy bites Serena Caner chicken creates two kinds of chemical compounds that may contribute to cancer: heterocyclic amines (HCAs) and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs). HCAs are created anytime meats are cooked at a high temperature such as grill-

There are also some observational studies in humans showing a link between consuming a lot of grilled and well-done meats with cancer. Barbecuing is easy, tasty and does not heat up your house; likely, the small cancer risk associated with grilling meat doesn’t mean you need to forgo hamburgers, hot dogs and steaks altogether, but like all good things, eat in moderation. You may also want to con-

sider the following tips to minimize your risk: • Clean your grill before cooking- this will remove any charred debris that could stick to your food. • Cut off and discard badly charred pieces of meat. • Precook meat slightly (such as microwaving them for a minute) before grilling – this reduces the amount of time the food is on the grill and allows some of the juices to drain,

Helping others belong benefits all NaN dickie Opening Our Eyes

Our need to belong is a basic human need, exceeded only by our need for food and shelter. I used to scoff at this notion—not about food or shelter, but about belonging. I didn’t think it was very important. When I was in my twenties, my third basic need was to be an independent, self-assured and confident individual. To belong to anything, I thought, required me to relinquish my uniqueness. I wanted no part of that. So, I marched on confidently with my independent, individualistic acquaintances. I could hardly call them friends, as we

were each competitive, motivated primarily by self-interest. Time passed, and I experienced a few yearlong episodes of clinical depression. Those terrible interruptions in my life brought me down off my pedestal. Gradually, I realized that my disdain for groups was no longer because I wanted to be that independent self-assured individual. Rather, my aversion was now based on fear. I was afraid that if I allowed myself to try to join any group, the people in it would see what a rotten person I was, and my massive feelings of shame would shine through.

I couldn’t allow myself that humiliation. In recognizing these deep fears, I also realized I was extremely lonely. This is a very common experience, and way of thinking, for many people who live with a mental illness. Many of us get stuck in that place of loneliness, longing for some sense of belonging: belonging to one other person, to our families, to a collection of like-minded and like-hearted people. How can one get unstuck? It takes a lot of courage to change, here specifically to let go of the assumption of being unworthy, to step into the unknown, to risk rejection. There is no guarantee that we will be embraced by those we wish to truly connect with. But the alternative is continued isolation and loneliness.

This is often enough to pry some folks from their stuckness. But not everyone. But the responsibility for including any specific person, especially one who is different, in a group does not reside only with the person who wants to belong. It is the responsibility of each member of a group, be it a family, social organization, volunteer team, etc., to assess whether they have a stigma related to that different person, whether she has a mental illness, he is indigenous, or she is a woman of colour. Then each member harbouring that stigma must address that attitude and change it if they care at all for the happiness and well being of that person. Are we prepared to make this change so

that more “different” people can feel they belong in our families, our groups, our communities? -Nan Dickie is the facilitator of a peer-led depression support group in Salmon Arm. Meetings are held the first and third Mondays at Askew’s Uptown community room at noon. Everyone, including supporters, welcome. Info: ndickie@telus.net; 250 832-3733.

The graduating class of 2017 had worked hard all year to get right where they were standing: on the brink of graduation.

The end of the school year was filled with a spectrum of emotions: stress, sadness, but most of all, joy. Students struggled to keep up with their studying as the rays of summer got hotter and hotter. However, all persevered, despite the beautiful Shuswap weather. The official school year ended with a retirement party for one of the school’s best and most reputable English teachers: Marta Mor. Her retirement attracted much attention, as previous and current students celebrated her wonderful career with ice cream cake, cards, and a journal filled with a personal comment from each of

SPCA wins $50,000 grant A $50,000 grant will enable the local SPCA to construct a facility to better house their recycling operations. It was announced on Canada Day, at Salmon Arm’s Children’s Festival, that the BC SPCA Shuswap Branch had won the Salmon Arm Savings and Credit Union Canada 150 Grant. The grant will be used to build a recycling centre to provide storage and adequate space for sorting bottles and securing donations. Any remaining funds above the cost of the project will be directed to animal medical and wellness needs at the branch. “Thank you to SASCU’s members for choosing us as their Canada 150 community project,” said Victoria Olynik, BC SPCA Shuswap Branch manager. “It shows such incredible support for the work that our volunteers do to protect and

such as heat and lighting, especially during winter months,” states the Shuswap Branch entry. “Having a recycling centre on (the) property will reduce the amount of bottles and cans littering our community roadways and parks, and the Shuswap Branch also recycles all of the plastic bags and boxes used to drop off donations. A small building is necessary to keep the

materials secured and contained in an organized manner.” There was initially 28 applications for the grant. “We… commend all of the organizations for their participation in the SASCU Canada 150 Grant process,” says Barry Johnson, SASCU board of directors chair. “Each demonstrates the strong community spirit and volunteerism in the Shuswap.”

New farmer’s market a go BUSINESS SPOTLIGHT Leah Blain Farmer John’s Market, located at the corner of Grandview Bench Road and Highway 97A by Sure Crop Feeds in Grindrod, opened its doors this week. There is a state-ofthe-art dairy barn with robots milking the cows, feeding the calves, and pushing up the feed to the dairy cows. You can watch all the action through the windows, or take a tour through the barn. The cost for a tour is $22 per family, or $8 per adult, $6 student, $5 children. The farm is SPCA certified. The gift shop has locally made items, from flowers, pottery and soap, to honey, beef jerky, cheese, and desserts. They have an impressive selection of cheese and lovely organic cream honey. The bistro features specialty coffees and Birchwood Dairy ice cream, floats, and milkshakes.

“We have pottery and painting classes in the mezzanine upstairs and we’re adding cooking classes later on,” says June DeDood. When the industrial kitchen is finished they will be making bread, pies, and soups onsite. The market is open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. seven days a week. People can ask for a tour when they arrive or arrange it ahead of time. To contact them, phone 778-443-5111 or visit their Facebook page, Farmer John’s Market.

Viewpoint

Saudi showdown with Qatar? GLOBAL VIEWS Gwynne Dyer The deadline that Saudi Arabia and its allies set for Qatar to submit to their “non-negotiable” demands was postponed to Wednesday, July 5. Since Qatar has already made it plain that it will not comply – it says the demands are “reminiscent of the extreme and punitive conduct of ‘bully’ states that have historically resulted in war” – the delay is a sure sign that the bullies don’t know what to do next. They presumably thought that the Qataris would buckle under their threat, and didn’t bother to work out their next move if it didn’t. So what happens now? Does Saudi Arabia invade Qatar? It could easily do so if it wanted to: Qatar has one-tenth of Saudi Arabia’s population, an undefended land border, and tiny armed forces. Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman has the support of Donald Trump in his blockade of Qatar, and he could probably talk Trump into accepting an invasion too. Moreover, this is the man who committed Saudi Arabian forces to the vicious civil war in Yemen on the mere (and largely unfounded) suspicion that Iran is helping the rebels militarily. Bin Salman’s terms for ending the block-

ade of Qatar were so harsh that it looks like he wanted them to be rejected. The thirteen demands included completely shutting down the Qatar-based al-Jazeera media group, whose satellite-based television network is the least censored and most trusted news organisation in the Arab world. Qatar was to break all contact with the Muslim Brotherhood, a largely non-violent and pro-democratic Islamic movement that was a leading force in the “Arab Spring” of 2010-11. It was to end all support for radical Islamist rebel groups in Syria, and above all for the organisation that was called the Nusra Front until late last year. (It then changed its name in an attempt to hide its ties to al-Qaeda.) Finally, Qatar was to end practically all trade and diplomatic contact with Iran, even though its income comes almost entirely from the huge gas field it shares with Iran. Oh, and it must pay compensation for the nuisance it has caused, and accept regular monitoring of its compliance with these terms for the next ten years. The four countries operating the blockade (Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahradi and Egypt –

Have your Say…

three absolute monarchies and one military dictatorship) are really just trying to suppress democratic ideas in the region. The accusation that Qatar is “supporting terrorism” would be more convincing if Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates had not been doing exactly the same thing. They all helped the Nusra Front with money, and ignored its ties with al-Qaeda because it was fighting the Shia-dominated regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. Now they have all stopped doing that, but Saudi Arabia and the UAE are condemning Qatar for doing it: the pot is calling the kettle black. But the “supporting terrorism” charge does get the Americans (or at least one ill-informed American called Donald Trump) on board. Qatar will pay a price for rejecting the Saudi demands. Almost all its food is imported, and in future it will all have to come in by sea or by air. But Qatar is rich enough to pay that price. In the end Saudi Arabia will almost certainly not invade. The 10,000 American troops based in Qatar give it no political protection (Washington will always put Saudi Arabia first), but the mere hundred-odd Turkish troops who are based there would help to defend the country if Qatar chose to resist. “We don’t need permission from anyone to establish military

bases among partners,” said Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. “We endorse and appreciate Qatar’s stand towards the 13 demands.” Saudi Arabia won’t risk even a small war with Turkey, so it will restrict itself to using its financial clout to stop other countries from trading with Qatar. As Omar Ghobash, the UAE’s ambassador to Russia, told the Guardian newspaper last week: “One possibility would be to impose conditions on our own trading partners and say that if you want to work with us then you have got to make a commercial choice (to boycott Qatar).” But that’s not likely to work either. Prince Mohammed bin Salman has started another fight he can’t finish.

College students recognized

A year and a half ago, Syrian-born Mustafa Zakreet was in a refugee camp in Lebanon waiting to come to Canada. While there, he learned a valuable lesson about the power of education – one that has stayed with him as he and his family have built a new life in Salmon Arm. Although trained as a railroad engineer, Zakreet – then only 23 – immediately put his university education to work teaching English to young children in the camp. “I was inspired at how, despite their circumstances, these kindergartners were so genuinely excited about learning,” explains Zakreet. “I saw how learning gave them hope for the future, just as it did for me.” Eighteen months and a great deal of hard work later, Zakreet is one of nearly 40 students who were recognized at Okanagan College’s Salmon Arm campus awards ceremony on June 21. It was a big night for students at the Salmon Arm campus. All told, more than $65,000 in scholarships and bursaries was awarded to 38 individuals that evening. “This event is truly one of the highlights

D Two histories of Canada Day Martha Wickett Salmon Arm Observer

Canada Day in Chase included more than just the waving of flags and cheering on of the nation. Along with Kamloops-South Thompson MLA Todd Stone’s reference to July 1, 1867, when the Dominion of Canada was formed, Neskonlith Chief Judy Wilson, joined by Troy Thomas and Gerry Thomas, read the words of their ancestral chiefs who petitioned Prime Minister Wilfrid Laurier in 1910. Stone read out an excerpt from the front page of the Globe newspaper written by publisher George Brown which, perhaps fittingly, was interrupted by the sounds of a CPR train passing by. In referring to the new nation, Brown wrote, in part: “Old things have passed away. The history of old Canada, with its contracted bounds and limited divisions of upper and lower, east and west, has been completed. And this day, a new volume is opened…” Remarked Stone: “I think it captures the excitement that people felt 150 years ago when this great nation of ours was founded.” Stone also acknowledged that the Chase gathering was being held on Secwepemc territory, that there is much more reconciliation to do and “I

am confident we can build an even greater nation by working together…” Wilson read a statement from the Union of BC Indian Chiefs, who declared they would not participate in Canada 150, as it “is not representative of the history of our lands and territories, or of our present reality as indigenous peoples.” The chiefs stated they will continue their work towards collectively forging a new path forward in the spirit of fairness, justice and hope, “which is built upon the solid foundation of the recognition of indigenous peoples’ aboriginal title and rights, treaty rights, and right of self-determination.” Although the letter from more than 100 years ago from the chiefs of the Shuswap, Okanagan and Couteau tribes of B.C. was presented to Laurier during a visit to Kamloops in August of 1910, Wilson and the Thomases pointed out it could have been written recently. The chiefs had welcomed Laurier graciously. Wilson, as Coyote/ Skelep, read: “We expect much of you as the head of this great Canadian Nation, and feel confident that you will see that we receive fair and honorable treatment. Our confidence in you has increased since we

Gerry Thomas, as Bear/Squilax, who explained to the audience he had spent July 1 in the Kamloops residential school because children were kept there until late in the summer, read a part of the chiefs’ letter that told about how well ‘Indians’ were faring when white people first arrived. “Fire, water, food, clothing and all the necessaries of life were obtained in abundance from the lands of each tribe, and all the people had equal rights of access to everything they required.”

Troy Thomas, as Silver Fox, spoke of how the chiefs’ letter is 100 years old, yet not many of the grievances have been addressed. “We have also learned lately that the British Columbia government claims absolute ownership of our reservations, which means that we are practically landless,” the chiefs stated in 1910. “We only have loan of those reserves in life rent, or at the option of the B.C. government.

SATURDAY, JULY 8 & SUNDAY, JULY 9

By Loretta Greenough Contributor

Events are coming up to help mark Canada’s 150th birthday. On Sunday, July 9 at 2 p.m., the North Shuswap Historical Society will be celebrating Canada 150 with a Photographic Show on the history of the North Shuswap. It will be held in the North Shuswap Community Hall. On Sunday, July 16

the North Shuswap Historical Society will be holding an Open House at T & L Reflections – A Little Museum from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at 3730 Zinck Rd., Scotch Creek. There will be various interactive pioneer activities taking place and the Lions will be running a barbecue for hungry visitors. Any questions call 250-955-6431.

We look forward to seeing you at both of these events. The North Shuswap Historical Society has been very active lately. We had a very successful June Pot Luck which everyone enjoyed. The food was delicious and the socializing wonderful. On June 25, 33 members enjoyed the annual Mystery Tour. As the members drive to the unknown destina-

tions they read about the history of various spots. The tour is divided into three envelopes. Once they reach the first destination, they are given the second envelope and so on. We enjoyed the wonderful Ashcroft museum and their walking tour as well as visiting Hat Creek Ranch with all their history. The day ended with a lovely dinner in Chase.

New approach to invasive plants A new Thompson-Nicola Invasive Plant Management Committee (TNIPMC) has been created by the Thompson-Nicola Regional District to administer invasive plant management with the TNRD boundaries, including Chase. For the past 20 years, the Southern Interior Weed Management Committee, a non-profit society, has delivered invasive

plant management on Crown land throughout the TNRD, operating in conjunction with a TNRD Invasive Plant Committee. The functions and roles of the Southern Interior Weed Management Committee and TNRD Invasive Plant Committee and their programs have been merged into the new committee, states a TNRD news release. The former one is in the process of disso-

lution, and the original TNRD Invasive Plant Committee has been dissolved upon creation of the new committee. The membership of the new committee includes representatives from major land managers in the TNRD as well as key organizations with invasive plant expertise. Funding for the program delivery of the new committee will primarily come from

provincial agencies and the TNRD Invasive Plant Control Service. The public can inquire about invasive plant management within the TNRD by calling 250.851.1699, by emailing invasiveplants@tnrd.ca or by visiting a new website that will be created this summer, merging the content from the existing websites www. siwmc.ca and www. tnrd.ca.

Roots & Blues 2017 a family friendly affair This year, many Canadians will be taking to the roads to make memories while the kids are out of school. There are so many options, but one that stands out is right in your backyard. On Aug. 17, pack up the car and head to the Salmon Arm Fairgrounds for a weekend in the beautiful Shuswap. You’ll spend three nights creating memories – and maybe even a new family tradition. “The 25th anniversary Salmon Arm Roots and Blues Festival lineup is proving to be one of the most anticipated; from the sounds of Ricky Skaggs to the

beats of our House Band and from the great vibes by artists like the Alex Cuba to the sweet stylings of groups like Five Alarm Funk,” says artistic director Peter North. “No matter the age, the whole family will be grooving to this summer soundtrack.” Music festivals might not be the first thing parents think of when planning a family activity but this annual event is geared to music-lovers of all ages. From sand boxes to practising the drums, the littlest members of the family will have a blast while parents take in the sights and sounds of an all-star roots and

blues lineup. The festival features the Family Fun Zone, packed with activities to keep everyone in the family happy – face-painting, crafts, water balloons, sandboxes, bouncy houses, and activities from the Okanagan Science Centre will all be main stage for families during the festival. “Imagine moving and grooving to the sounds of the Talking Dreads while at the same time building a sand castle as a family,” adds North. The Roots and Blues Play Stage will also be a hit for the family. This interactive stage allows everyone to get handson and learn about

music essentials. Mom and dad can learn a few storytelling tips while the kids take a spin on a few musical instruments. And, finally, when it is time for some kidfree time on Saturday or Sunday, the festival features onsite daycare for children over three. Kids can be dropped off for two-hour time periods for $20 per child. They will enjoy fun with new friends and parents will have the opportunity to enjoy the musical offerings on any of the stages and perhaps a beer or glass of wine in one of the adult-only venues.

Local families are invited to introduce their children to a wide world of music at the Roots & Blues Festival.

Tour the Haney house, other buildings in the village and the Montebello Museum. Experience interactive exhibits brought to life by interpreters and historical characters from Salmon Arm’s past, like Miss Halpenny, the first school marm in the Broadview School House, or Mr. Newnes’ apprentice in the Blacksmith Shop. Visit Mt Ida Church and listen to stories from the collection of Rollie Jamieson. Participate in the old-fashioned sack or three-legged races

and games like toss eggs or tug of war. Or learn to walk on stilts. Play games of chance and win prizes at the midway games. Enjoy a wagon ride around the farm and visit Chelsea’s petting zoo. Take in a showing of the youth film 150 Voices in the Bank of Hamilton, sponsored by the Salmon Arm Arts Centre. Jack Stead is bringing his antique gun collection to show and will instruct on the art of sharp-shooting. Have your photo taken in Felts Photo Booth at the Photo Shop in the Montebello Museum. Artist Terry Greenhough will be showing his collection of “Photographic Memories.” “Join us at the dedicated site at the Montebello Museum for the Time Capsule

Ceremony,” encourages Mackie. A time capsule ceremony will take place at 1 p.m. when a donor group picture will be taken and legacy packages will be sealed in the time capsule with a marker placed on the time capsule site announcing the unsealing ceremony on July 9, 2042.

Thank you from CMHA Shuswap-Revelstoke Ride Don’t Hide We would like to give an enormous thank you to the many people who came out to support the Shuswap-Revelstoke Ride Don’t Hide on June 25th 2017. Without your dedication, enthusiasm, and commitment, this would not have been possible. Riders in 35 communities from BC to Newfoundland came together to celebrate mental health. Together we raised over $1.5 Million for Canadian Mental Health Association programs and services that support not only the 1 in 5 experiencing a mental illness, but all Canadians working to improve mental health for themselves, their loved ones and their communities.  Here in Salmon Arm, our Shuswap-Revelstoke Ride was a success. It was a glorious sunny day for our 128 riders cycling 1 of 3 routes (10km, 32km or 54km). Our Ride raised over $10,000.00 and counting to support local mental health programs here in the Shuswap! This year our ride focused on workplace mental health in knowing that every day 1/2 million Canadians will call in sick for work due to mental health concerns. We want to take Ride Don’t Hide as the opportunity to continue to speak about the importance of mental health, to affect policy change in our government at all levels. However, most importantly, share as individuals, that we can make a difference to our own mental health and those that we are connected too by listening, supporting and not judging. Ride Don’t Hide’s growth, year after year, shows the shifting public view towards mental illness and the growing awareness that mental health programs are essential to a healthy society. Thank you to all our riders, donors, sponsors and volunteers for an amazing Ride Don’t Hide 2017, and we can’t wait to see you for the next Ride Don’t Hide in 2018 as we celebrate 100 years that CMHA have been supporting Canadians and their mental health!

Supplying food from local farmers, fruit growers and suppliers is one of our top priorities. Not only does it help us deliver fresher, healthier, tastier options to our customers, it also boosts our local economy and strengthens our community. Whenever possible, our products come from the neighbour next door. What local initiatives does your business support? We give back to the community by supporting

local groups, sports teams and charitable organizations whenever it’s possible. This includes the Salmon Arm Silverbacks, the Armstrong IPE, Salmon Arm Roots & Blues Festival and the Rotary School Lunch Program and the Swim BC Open Water Provincial Swimming Championships, and the Montebello Block in R.J. Haney Heritage Village. Our Uptown location also offers the use of their Community Room

free of charge to local non-profit organizations. We go back a long way. In 1929, Dick Askew had a vision for a grocery store unlike anything else in the Okanagan. This year Askew’s celebrates several milestones, 50 years for the Downtown store in the current location, 20 years for the Sicamous store, 5 years for the Uptown store and the grand reopening of the Armstrong store after the completion of their extensive renovations.
