High voltage sparks pole fire Barb Brouwer Salmon Arm Observer

Quick actions by Salmon Arm firefighters shut down a fire at a local campground. Members from all four fire halls were at Hall 3 for a briefing on the current extreme fire risk in Salmon Arm when they were interrupted by a call to respond to a power pole fire at Salmon Arm Camping Resort on Highway 97B NE, next to R.J. Haney Heritage Village. Fire Chief Brad Shirley says he was bringing firefighters up to date on the provincial fire situation and what to expect locally if a wildfire starts here, when the call came in at 7:30 p.m.

Halls 1 and 2 responded with about 30 firefighters who arrived to find a power pole sparking and arcing from a transformer. “Crews started investigating and found hydro-related problems in a cabin and house on the campground; there must have been some kind of high voltage that went through a number of buildings and RVs,” Shirley says. “A number of small fires were extinguished and Hydro was called in to repair the transformer and lines.” Firefighters were on-scene for two-and-a-half-hours and no one was injured. Campground owner Antonietta Muto is extremely grateful to fire-

fighters and police who responded so quickly. “Nothing was burnt down, it was just wires that sparked – sparks but no flames,” a grateful Muto said Wednesday. “A transformer blew and they were here really quickly and ensured everyone’s safety. We want to thank them very much.” Muto is also grateful to BC Hydro for getting power back on in two hours and Shaw, whose repair crew was on-site by 8 a.m. and had the system back up by 10. She says most of the damage was to inverters in appliances and she is working with Country Camping to help RV owners get their units repaired and the campground fully operational.

BC Hydro rep Jen Walker-Larsen says the cause of the fire was a service overload due to “a big draw from air conditioners” located in RVs, and that the campground owners should be looking at upgrading the service. In terms of the province’s wildfire situation, Shirley says another briefing will be held soon for the firefighters who left to respond to the power pole incident. In the meantime, the Salmon Arm Fire Department responded to a request from the provincial Office of the Fire Commissioner by sending a water tender to Williams Lake. The request was received at 2:15 Continued on A2

Firefighters ignore ban Carmen Weld Black Press

A group of forest firefighters are in hot water on social media after they were captured enjoying a campfire on Adams Lake Tuesday evening. A Facebook post showing the firefighters beside their campfire during a province-wide campfire ban had been shared more than 600 times 12 hours after it was posted. Rusty Clark took the initial photos and posted them to Facebook, asking residents to help him report the wildfire crew. “Can somebody please report these idiots for me please!,” wrote Clark. “They’re at Gordon Bay on Adams Lake with a big campfire thinking that it’s OK. Our own

firefighters?” The BC Wildfire Service says it is well aware of the photos and is investigating those involved and their actions. “We are taking this very seriously,” said fire information office Justine Hunse. Hunse says the province will release more information once it conducts a full investigation into the actions of its crew members. Among the more than 100 comments on the post are people furious the firefighters are breaking their own rules. “That’s what happens when out-oftown fire crews come to fight fires…That’s why our local firefighter contractors should be on the fires, not these unprofessional firefighters,” commented Carmen

Focusing on fire victims

Whatever else can be said about major disasters, they do have a way of focusing one’s priorities. When the B.C. Interior erupted into a scene from Dante’s Inferno last week, even warring provincial politicians were compelled to set aside their differences to ensure firefighting efforts were maximized and thousands of evacuees were assisted. “This is no time for politics,” NDP premier-designate John Horgan said as he met with soon-to-be-outgoing Liberal cabinet ministers in the wake of the conflagration. While their plight was dwarfed by the multiple Interior wildfires — quite literally overnight — victims displaced by last Thursday’s major apartment fire in Parksville were also placed at the centre of attention by local emergency services. As with the provincial and federal resources being thrown into the flames of Ashcroft, Williams Lake and 100 Mile House, nobody has asked who’s going to pay for all the initial public aid, and how much is this costing taxpayers, anyway? There will be time for finger-pointing and, in all likelihood, litigation, in the coming weeks, months and possibly years. And there are likely to be hard-luck and hardship stories from some of the fire evacuees whose longterm treatment may not be quite as tender as it was when they were offered a hot coffee and a soft shoulder in the reception centre. But somehow, whether on the left, the right or somewhere on the spectrum known as centre, people seem to find common ground in the idea that victims of disasters must be served first. The cynic, of course, will be happy to point out Horgan’s “This is no time for politics” comment can be taken as a political statement in its own right. But that doesn’t make it wrong. -Parksville Qualicum Beach News

Program introduces fishing to kids the great outdoors James Murray Looking back, I realize just how lucky I was to have a father who was willing to take my brothers and I fishing. He taught us the basics of angling and made sure we didn’t fall into the water in the process. I have a lot of fond memories about fishing way back then. Like I said, we were lucky. However, not all kids have parents who fish, or even know someone who fishes, and therefore that knowledge is not passed along. Enter the Kingfisher Interpretive Centre Society (KICS), located at 2550 Mabel Lake Road, along the banks of the Shuswap River near Enderby. On Sunday, July 23, the KICS is offering their annual Learn to Fish Program for children 15 years of age and under. Members of the Shuswap Fly Fishers, Kalamalka Fly Fishers, Enderby and District Fish and Game Club and the Freshwater Fisheries Society of B.C. will be on

hand to provide a firsthand fishing experience for young anglers which will include casting instruction, fish identification and handling practices, fly tying and more. Each and every young angler who takes part in the Learn to Fish Program will receive one-on-one guidance from one of the volunteers and, in the process of learning new skills, will also get a to cast their lines to fish that will be ever so eager to take what anglers have to offer. If they choose, anglers will also learn to clean their catch and take it home for supper. This fun-filled event also includes information on aquatic invasive species and an interactive aquatic bug display, which will provide an opportunity to learn how to recognize what local fish are feeding on. The event is free and will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Bring your own gear if you have it or, if you are not sure what kinds of gear you might need, rods will be available for use and

advice on what to purchase will be offered. “Fishing brings people and families together,” says KICS executive director Shona Bruce. “It also teaches them patience… and, more importantly, fishing helps get our youth outdoors and into nature, creating life-long memories.” When it comes right down to it, the whole program sounds pretty good – even if you don’t happen to catch a fish. The Kingfisher Interpretive Centre is a nonprofit, volunteer-driven, community based salmon hatchery and environmental education centre, established almost three decades ago in response to the near extinction of salmon stocks in the Shuswap River system. At the KICS, visitors learn about salmon and the habitat in which they are reared. “We are a watershed enhancement organization dedicated to interactive, hands-on ecological education,” says Bruce. “All of the programs and activities here are guided by our mission to reunite people with the natural world. “We welcome thousands of visitors annually to our

10-acre living classroom. A number of local school classes who raise salmon from egg to fry in classroom aquariums come here throughout the spring and fall to participate in… ecological education programs. Even throughout the summer months, we have KICS staff available to share the ‘magic of salmon’ with visitors from around the world, as well as provide specialized programs and child-friendly educational activities.” I have been out to the Kingfisher Interpretive Centre many times and I have to say I’ve always been impressed. Not only with the hatchery and facility itself, but with the knowledge and dedication of the staff, not to mention the volunteers who help put on the various programs. It is a true learning centre, where kids can actually have fun while learning. Part of me wishes I was a kid all over again. But then again, one is never too old to learn. For further information on the Learn to Fish Program and other programs, please contact the Kingfisher Interpretive Centre at 250838-0004.

Great celebration Thanks to organizers of Blind Bay Canada Day celebrations. As usual, Canada Day celebrations in Blind Bay were wonderful. Thanks to the organizers and volunteers who make this annual event such s success for the rest of us. Last year I wrote a letter of complaint regarding traffic control around Centennial Park that prevented people with physical handicaps from attending the evening performances in the park. Last year the road was blocked to all traffic at the junction at Balmoral Road and Blind Bay Road, 2.9 km from the events at Centennial Park. It was impossible for anyone with physical limitations to walk that far. I was on crutches and had to miss the

evening events due to the traffic blockade, as did many others. This year I must commend the committee for listening and making changes. There was was a big improvement in accessibility as the road was blocked very near Centennial Park. People with mobility issues could be dropped off and the

driver could go back to park. There was designated parking for the handicapped at the park as well. So thank you to the organizers! Your traffic control changes were much appreciated. J. Gordon

Related styles show Judy Coutts and Judy Mackenzie are back for the fifth year with “Related Styles,” their annual art show. The artists and sistersin-law will exhibit their work from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, Aug. 4 and 5 at the Sorrento Drop-In Centre, which is located in the lower level of the Sorrento Memorial Hall. Coutts, a former local girl, grew up in Carlin, and now calls Rosedale home. She paints primarily in oils and watercolours, and chooses to portray people and assorted wildlife in her landscapes. Horses are her specialty. She belongs to several painting groups,

including the Agazzi Monday Painters, the Golden Palette Group of Cultus Lake and the Chilliwack Visual Artist Association. She also takes ongoing lessons with well-known artist Dawn Kerr. Mackenzie, who is married to Judy Coutts’ brother John, lives in Chase, where she is the proud owner and sole artist of her homebased Magpie Gallery. The medium she uses is acrylics, painting predominantly local landscapes, which include wildflowers, water and animals. Throughout the years she has exhibited her artwork in several galleries, both locally and in Alberta. She belongs to the Thompson, Nicola, Shuswap Chapter of the Federation of Ca-

nadian Artists, the Kamloops Arts Council, and Blind Bay Painters. Judy also teaches classes and workshops at her Magpie Gallery, as well in conjunction with other organizations. Joining Coutts and Mackenzie this year is Chase artist Ellen Blackburn, known for her unique egg-art creations. Ellen paints and carves ostrich, emu, rhea, goose and other smaller eggs, and says these original decorative and functional pieces would be a feature addition to any décor. Mackenzie’s husband John will also be displaying his unique and meticulously crafted wooden boxes. Refreshments will be served during the show and two door prizes will be drawn.

Need new living room furniture?

Muslim Brother far from non-violent I take strong issue with Marxist Gwynne Dyer, where he makes the ludicrous claim in his recent Global Views column that the Muslim Brotherhood is a “largely non-violent and pro-democratic Islamic movement.” For starters, the Muslim Brotherhood traces back to the Third Reich. Its founder, Hassan Al-Banna, was an admirer of Adolph Hitler

and, in the 1930s, the Muslim Brotherhood became a secret arm of Nazi intelligence. Osama bin Laden and other members of al-Qaida’s leadership — including its current leader, al-Zawahiri — were all members of the Muslim Brotherhood, including Sayyid Qutb, the father of modern jihad. Dyer would no doubt be among those who claim the Muslim Broth-

erhood became peaceful following Qutb’s 1966 execution but, as Leo Hohmann points out in a March article in wnd. com, the Clarion Project finds, “There is no Muslim Brotherhood manifesto of unequivocal non-violence anywhere to be found. For all the talk of this momentous change, the Brotherhood has never produced an authoritative declaration explaining this supposed

ideological moderation.” Not even in the book titled, Preachers, Not Judges, claiming to be a formal rebuttal to the teachings of Qutb because the book is a fraud. The same WND article correctly states that the Muslim Brotherhood has many destructive offshoots — including CAIR, a Hamas front group and unindicted co-conspirator in the

Holy Land Foundation terror-financing trial of 2008. Clearly, the Muslim Brotherhood is completely deserving of what Philip B. Haney — a former Homeland Security officer — says what everyone in the Middle East knows, that being they are the Ikwan, shorthand for Muslim Brotherhood terrorists. Steve McGarrett

Letter serves agenda While reading the June 30th Shuswap Market News, I came across a letter to the editor written by a Lloyd Atkins. As a British Columbian, firstly, I am deeply offended by this personal attack on Ms. Clark. I would like to point out that I would have been compelled to bring this to your attention regardless of who was being victimized by Mr. Atkins ‘school yard antics.’ Whether the target had been John Horgan or Andrew J. Weaver or in this case Christy Clark. It seems

to me that Mr. Atkins was only focused on assigning derogatory adjectives to the letters in Christy Clark’s name. I can counter those negative adjectives by words for CHRISTY by such words as C for candid, H for hardworking, R for resolved, I for involved, S for sensible, T for trustworthy and Y for youthful. Then CLARK by such words as C for conscientious, L for logical, A for astute, R for reliable and K for keen. Quote: “Does Christy Clark take British Columbians to be fools?

Judging by her latest manipulative maneuvering, she must.” Unquote. But Mr. Atkins targeting just one person is irresponsible and is clearly self-serving to his own political agenda. Surely both the NDP and Green Party have done plenty of their own maneuvering as is witnessed by the soon-to-be-formed coalition. British Columbian voters deserve better. I for one am highly offended and take issue with it. Valeria Knezevic

INFORMATION DESIGNED TO PROMOTE AND ENHANCE YOUR WELLBEING

Exercise Your Brain

FAMILY CHIROPRACTIC Dr. Warren Gage For many years and even as recent as when I was in studying for my Doctor of Chiropractic degree in the 1990’s, it was commonly believed that the brain deteriorates with age and it remains relatively unchanged through adulthood. However, much of the newest brain research is showing this simply is not true. In fact, the brain has an ability to change, adapt, and grow through your entire life right into old-age. However, just like the muscles in the body, the old adage “use it or lose it” definitely applies. Just like your muscles, the brain requires regular exercise in order to maintain optimal function. Activities that require a high level of sensing, imagining, and

perceiving all help our brain to develop and reorganize. This healthy change in the brain is called neuroplasticity. “Neuro” means nerve or brain, and “plasticity” means an ability to change and adapt. Below are some suggestions on how to promote neuroplasticity in the brain. In other words, ways we can maintain healthy brain function into our later years. 1. Just like the muscles in the body, you need to feed your brain the right foods. Everyone should regularly consume high levels of essential fatty acids, tryptophan, vitamin B6, folate and iron to support a healthy brain. 2. Exercise is essential. Working up a

sweat several times per week not only builds a healthy body, but it also stimulates the brain. 3. Breathing deeply through the day reduces stress hormones that negatively impact the brain and supplies it with the higher levels of oxygen that it requires. 4. Reduce stress. Chronic stress has actually been shown to shrink brain cells 5. One tip I found surprising, was to avoid multitasking. When we multitask the brain is forced to jump from one task to another. It is healthier for the brain to allow it to stay focussed and finish a task before moving onto another. 6. Learning a second language is a great

workout for the brain. 7. Finally, a big part of maintaining a healthy brain is to regularly get adjusted by your Chiropractor. Dr. Heidi Haavik is a Chiropractic researcher and she published a study in the journal JMPT in 2010 that clearly shows adjustments over a period of time improve the quality of information travelling between our brain and body. This improved communication and stimulation of the brain can potentially have global improvements in health, wellbeing, mood and performance. The encouraging fact from all of this latest research is the old saying “you can’t teach an old dog new tricks” no longer applies. We now know that good lifestyle habits including Chiropractic adjustments stimulate the brain to form new pathways leading to improved function. Dr. Warren Gage is a family wellness Chiropractor who can be reached at Harbourfront Family Chiropractic at (250) 803-0224.

Five tips for keeping nutrition on track while travelling (NC) We’ve all experienced the symptoms of a post-vacation food hangover. Road trips, long flights and hotel stays make it difficult to stick to a nutritious eating routine, while overindulgence in sugary cocktails, greasy food or buffet fare doesn’t help either. Fortunately, Nema McGlynn, registered dietitian at Loblaws, believes vacations don’t need to be synonymous with diet disasters. Here are her top tips: 1. Be mindful of food choices. Remember that if most of your dining choices are energy-dense and nutrient poor, you’re likely going to feel bad once you get back to the office or school. “Instead, pick out your top restaurants, look at the menus and map out what to have ahead of time so you can balance out heavier meals with lighter ones,” recommends McGlynn. Take your time at meals. You’re on vacation, so slow down and savour

every bite, take in aromas, and pay attention to plating techniques and unusual food combinations. 2. Aim for a salad a day. You may not always have this option at restaurants and they tend to be overdressed and expensive, but check nearby grocery stores for prewashed bags of greens or chopped veggies that you can keep in your hotel room fridge. “If you don’t have a fridge, many grocery stores and markets offer fresh

veggies and fruit you can eat on the spot,” says McGlynn. 3. Keep nutritious snacks handy. Plan ahead and bring snacks like mini peppers or cucumbers, apples, bananas, pears, dried fruits, roasted chickpeas or edamame, and pre-portioned nuts or seeds. For airplane rides, avoid high fat, high fibre and starchy foods like avocados, cream sauces, potatoes and bran since they take longer to digest. Also skip gas-produc-

ing foods like broccoli, beans, peas and carbonated beverages. 4. Drink before you eat. Dehydration is common while on vacation and can lead to overeating. Try to drink a glass or two of water before every meal and snack, which may help curb your appetite. You can even aim to have one after your meal. If

you want to consume alcohol, go for half pints of beer, five versus nine ounce glasses of wine, and keep a close eye on what you’re using for mix since many are full of sugar. 5. Build in Activity. “There’s no reason you can’t build exercise into your vacation,” says Nema. “For beach vacations, swim, surf or

Newcomers find joy in wilderness Barb Brouwer Salmon Arm Observer

There’s more to becoming part of community than learning the language. A group of English as a second language learners in the Settlement Language Services program at Okanagan College were recently introduced to camping Canadian-style through a Parks Canada program. “We’ve been trying to get our learners on the program for two years,” says ESL teacher Olia Bullen. “Everyone was very excited, but it was during the time of Ramadan so none of the Syrians could go.” For many, the June 23 to 25 trip to Glacier National Park’s Loop Brook Campground was their first camping experience of any kind. The newcomers learned many new skills, with equipment provided by Mountain Equipment Co-op: tent set-up, how to start a campfire, camp cooking, how to pack a backpack and very importantly the Bear Aware program. “They were terrified by the bear safety

workshop,” says Bullen. “One camper was not able to sleep in the tent because of all the noises.” On a more comfortable note, participants were introduced to Canadian traditions of campfire storytelling accompanied by hot chocolate and marshmallows. Bullen, who came to Canada from Siberia in 2003, is well-acquainted with the challenges of settling in a new country. Even when cultures seem similar, Bullen says the differences can be compared to an iceberg. “There is more under water than above,” she says. “It took me more than 10 years to realize all the differences.” Now on a summer break, Bullen says she taught 30 ESL learners this year, a group of newcomers from many different countries. “I love it, the world comes to my classroom in a way, ” says Bullen, who was an English teacher in her native Russia and has been teaching in the program at the college for four years. Funded by Citizenship and Immigration Canada, the English as a Second Language

Settlement Assistance Program (ESLAP) is designed to help new Canadians improve their English through small group language instruction and weekly meetings with volunteer tutors. Learners are assigned to one of three levels, depending on their proficiency with the English language. Instruction is focused on speaking, listening, reading and writing skills on topics that include health care, banking, education, Canadian history and culture. Field trips and social events are encouraged because being new to a community, particularly when one doesn’t understand the language or the culture, can be a very isolating experience. And a side benefit to the extracurricular events is that in most cases the only language they can share is English, which opens communication. The learners are curious about each other’s cultures and become close, with some friendships continuing outside the classroom. “I really enjoy taking people on field trips,” says Bullen, who at-

Paddling picks up steam in Shuswap ShuSwaP PaSSion Jim Cooperman The tide is beginning to turn. Shuswap’s reputation as a mecca for high-speed, motorized aquatic recreation is slowly evolving into a destination for low-impact, sustainable, environmentally friendly, healthy paddling. The Shuswap Trail Alliance wants to encourage this transition by promoting what will be called “Blueways.” They hope to work with their partners to create a Blueways guidebook that will complement its popular trail guide and mesh with Secwepemc traditional values. Our canoe has been to many of these Blueways over the years and I am hopeful that many of our favourite destinations will be

featured in the brochure. On Shuswap Lake, the must-see destination is Copper Island with its loop trail and rocky bluffs and the best access is from the provincial park boat launch in Scotch Creek. Another favourite destination is Cinnemousun Narrows, where there is wonderful trail to hike, a historical cairn and log cabin, and lovely beaches. The closest access launches are either from Wild Rose Bay or from Ruckell Point on the north shore. Seymour Arm and Bughouse Bay are also pleasant places to paddle. One needs to be careful on Adams Lake, as the wind can pick up suddenly. The north

end is by far one of the most scenic and interesting parts of the lake, as there are islands to investigate and wetlands to observe wildlife, plus one can canoe a short ways north upstream into the Upper Adams River. Some of the best areas for paddling on Mara Lake include the narrow stretch in the centre of the lake where there are many pictographs to study, Turtle Bay, and the adjacent Rosemond Lake. The north end of Mabel Lake where there are wetlands near the mouth of Wap Creek is fun to explore. Given that Sugar Lake is now a reservoir, the best destination for a paddle is the island where there are remnants of an old homestead. Smaller lakes abound in the Shuswap and some of the best ones to paddle include Gardom Lake, Hid-

den Lake off the Trinity Valley Road and White Lake. The best place to paddle in the Shuswap is Humamilt Lake north of Albas. Another gem is Momich Lake Provincial Park that actually includes three lakes and the tiny Momich River. Although the campsite was closed after a forest fire burned much of the park in 2009, one can access the waterway where the bridge crosses the river between the larger second lake and the third lake. Unless you are a skilled whitewater kayaker, there are just three rivers suitable for paddling any distance. On the Shuswap River from the Trinity Bridge to Mara Lake, in addition to wildlife sightings one can paddle alongside tubers and

rafters on a warm summer day. To the east, the section of the Shuswap River between the power dam and Mabel Lake is also a joy to paddle. The trick is to pick a time when there is enough water to keep one’s canoe or kayak afloat. The small rapids provide some thrills with little risks. The Eagle River is by far the safest except during high water, and is one of the most scenic waterways in the Shuswap, with its many oxbows and views of farms and forested hillsides. It will take more than a brochure to promote more paddling in the Shuswap, as there is a need for infrastructure. Access needs to be improved, along with parking and signage.

Fighting wildfires in B.C., then and now ShuSwap OutdOOrS Hank Shelley We have all now seen the devastation/ destruction raging across our province, by wildfire. The human heart prevails, and, help is on the way. Also, many folks are caring for the pets and domestic animals. I feel terribly sad for the wildlife, large and small, in the way of the fires – the bear,deer,moose,elk mice, gophers, squirrels and chipmunks. It was a long time ago, but for those of us that were there, memories linger on. Growing thick and heavy, very big cedar trees cast a deep eerie shadow across steep terrain below. A mile or so distance across, the Greenbush wildfire (36 kilometres north of Sugar Lake), belched shimmering heat and smoke high into the atmosphere, as the 11 of us grubbed fire guard through deep moss to dirt, trying to contain our fire. This fire was on Mt. Joss, nestled between Mt. English and Tilley and the top of the Monashee range, years ago. There had been a forestry look-out on Joss, but during thunderstorms and lightning the lookout had to move down to a cave far below due to the violent intensity of the storms. Another chap and I volunteered to hike back up through buck brush and devils club to sub alpine, to gather the double cardboard boxes of groceries, parachuted down to us from a circling Seccna 185. In big timber far below us, another massive giant cedar had exploded, sending a ball of flame crashing downhill. These trees burned inside on punk/ rotted wood, then you would see smoke pop out on top. Two days later, they would crash to the ground, starting fire anew.

An Avenger (old U.S. Navy vintage)made several passes, picking up water from Mabel Lake, which came down through the canopy as a fine mist. I still recall spraying Ronnie Shulties boots as he stood in hot ashes, trying to chainsaw a large square hole into a burning cedar, and the one precious box containing 11 bottles of beer that we lugged down to fire camp. One had broken on impact. All thanks to Ranger Brian Collins at the Enderby ranger station, and picked up by Norm Dale, radio operator. This was but one fire of many we had to tackle that hot dry season, as Stan Wejr, Henry Zamis and myself as patrolmen, hit the beer parlours, stopped drivers and conscripted men, including loggers, onto the fire lines. In the early 1980s, firefighters had to take a course. Fallers had to be certified. The look-outs vanished as computerization, Doppler radar and modern firefighting techniques took hold. Men are still required on the ground to fight fire; however, much is accomplished from the air, as we see daily with the helicopters and air tankers, dropping retardant. Back in the ’60s we had thunderstorms, lightning and wildfires, but not at the intensity we see in today’s global warming, which was predicted by climatologists to increase weather behavior into the future. Too, many mistakes were made in the past on major fires at Chase and Salmon Arm by those in charge, by not estimating the immediate situation, weather patterns and warnings by old timers about wind direction, etc.

We now have the B.C. Wildfire Service’s latest technology, Con air and helicopters trying

their best to stay ahead, of what is shaping up to be being caught between a rock and a hard

place/growing wildfire menace. A complete campfire ban is in place. Many

fires are human caused. Use your cell phone to report idiots. Please use every precaution.

Be prepared and aware of what may take place here. Let’s hope it doesn’t happen again!

Big Salmon Arm bocce win It was a big win for the Salmon Arm Musketeers. The Special Olympics Bocci Team took the gold medal in the B division at the Special Olympics Summer Games held in Kamloops July 7 and 8. Team members were Nick Anchikoski, Kathleen Nelson, Carina Chu and Tristan

Harms-Popham. Local coaches were Jacquie Bolen and Ernie Nelson, with sanctioned coach from Penticton Ray Huson. There were 1,900 athletes from seven regions. Salmon Arm is in Region 2, which was the host region this year. There were 11 different events.

In Bocci there were five divisions, A-E. Salmon Arm qualified for the Special Olympics in Oliver last year. Based on how they did last year, earlier this year, and then in the first two rounds on Friday, they were placed into the appropriate division. Behind them in the medals were the

Campbell River Cobras with silver and the Oceanside Sharks with bronze. Salmon Arm looked to have the most and loudest fan support of family and friends for their four well-loved athletes, braving the heat and smoke and even doing the wave and can-can from time to time.

Court rules on council Another change is coming for the Adams Lake Indian Band council as a result of a Federal Court of Appeal ruling. The court of appeal disagreed with previous decisions made by a judicial review and an appeal of that review in the Federal Court regarding the removal of band councillors from office. In a ruling made July 5, the unanimous decision of three Federal Court of Appeal judges was that if a petition to remove councillors Georgina Johnny, Brandy Jules and Ronald Jules is to be pursued, the Community Panel which removed them would have to disallow panel members who have direct conflicts of interest from voting. The court of appeal disagreed with the Federal Court ruling stating the Community Panel’s decision to remove them from office

should stand. Similarly, the Federal Court of Appeal ruled the removal of Coun. Doris Johnny from office should not stand. It also said she should not be prohibited from running in an election in 2018, as was previously decided by the Community Panel. The band was to hold a press conference Thursday, after Shuswap Market News press deadlines, regarding the ramifications of the Federal Court of Appeal, the status of the four councillors and strategies for moving forward. In the meantime, the future of Chief Paul Michel is also before the courts, as he, too, was removed from office by the Community Panel. He requested an injunction declaring his removal as null and void, so he will remain as chief, at least until July 31, when a judicial review will be heard by the Federal Court.

A personal look at assisted dying Well-known Salmon Arm resident uses new federal legislation to end life. Martha Wickett Salmon Arm Observer

“Hello. This is Sally Scales. S-ca-l-e-s. I’m in Salmon Arm and I am preparing to die tomorrow,” said the message on the voice mail. The message was left overnight Monday, July 3 at the Salmon Arm Observer office. Sally was one of the more than 400 British Columbians to use the Medical Assistance in Dying (MAiD) service since it became legal in Canada in June of 2016. In her voice message, Sally said she was being blocked from using MAiD by her landlord because some tenants at Arbor Lodge seniors’ residence did not want it to happen there. Her son Peter Scales telephoned the newspaper July 4 to explain his mother had been moved to Bastion Place care facility where the assisted dying would go ahead. She died at 11:30 that morning, as scheduled. Peter says his mother had been in favour of medical assistance in dying since 1993 when Canadian Sue Rodriguez, who was suffering from ALS – amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or Lou Gehrig’s disease, took her legal battle for assisted suicide to the Supreme Court of Canada. Although she lost her case in a 5-4 decision, she took her own life in 1994 with the help of an anonymous physician. Peter says his mom remembered when Rodriguez asked, ‘Whose body is this?’ “She said it’s my own body and I hope the law can change in time for me.” He recalls that later Sally read an article by an oncologist who said he hoped to die at 75. As former owner of the Lakeshore News, Sally then wrote a column stating she’d like to die at 85. Peter says people around town, including some from her church, told her quietly of similar wishes. “She knew she wasn’t alone in wanting to die at her own time and of her own choosing.” Sally underwent open heart surgery 11 years ago, receiving a new valve and a quadruple bypass. At that time, “she said again and again that she was never going through that again.” Peter said Sally watched both her brothers die and her mother die of heart attacks. “She knew how the story was going to end.” The new valve Sally got worked well for about 10 years, but then it wore out “through no fault of the medical profession.” Although she was offered another valve, she refused.

“She was done. She was 79. She didn’t make it to her 85th.” Her heart was operating at a maximum 20 per cent efficiency, so she was short of breath, ‘puffing’ and anxious a lot, Peter says. “It would scare her as maybe this was the time she was going to die.” As is required under the MAiD process, Sally filled out the application. She was assessed by a Salmon Arm doctor on June 23, says Peter. Then on June 28, a Revelstoke doctor assessed her in her room at Arbor Lodge. Later they agreed on a date of 11 a.m. July 4 to carry out MAiD in her room. Peter says Sally was anxious about the paperwork. “There was less than she probably imagined, but it’s certainly paperwork that needs to be done correctly. I think the whole MAiD community, the MAiD providers, are being appropriately extra careful. They don’t want to be seen as killing people, but rather ending suffering.” Did Sally ever have second thoughts? “No, that wasn’t her style. She didn’t have second thoughts about anything,” he smiles. Peter says her family was supportive of her decision. The only glitch was being informed on July 3 that she wouldn’t be permitted to die at Arbor Lodge, he says. “She was so happy she could die in her home – which was Arbor – surrounded by her things.” Peter sees the lodge’s decision as hurtful. “It seemed like when we wanted to deal with just our mom and our grief, we had this needless logistical detail that seemed really cruel.” A note to Sally from operations manager Christina Lutz stated, in part: “Respectfully, I do have to take into consideration the general feeling this sets about the house and the opinions of the other residents who live under this roof. Therefore, we will not allow this event to happen here and respectfully request that you find an alternate site.” Peter says his family scrambled on a long weekend to change locations and Bastion Place was very helpful in accommodating them.

Sally Scales, who ended her life under the new Medical Assistance in Dying (MAiD) law, holds a photo of herself as a nurse in earlier years. Lutz reiterated in a telephone interview that some residents didn’t like the plan. “Sally was saying what was happening and the other people who lived here were not comfortable with it.” Lutz said the lodge was happy to have Sally as a resident for nearly a year. “She brought spice and laughter and good feelings to our home and we wish the family well.” Sally’s three children – Peter, Richard and Linda, and three of her five grandchildren were present during her final hours. He says a nurse and physician attended, the nurse inserting an intravenous (IV) line. “She arrived and made sure that Sally was comfy and well-positioned on the bed. She stayed with Sally until the doctor was ready,” Peter says. Peter and his niece then watched the doctor prepare the syringes, labelling them to have them in the right order. When it was time to administer the drugs, Peter and his niece left the doctor and Sally alone in the room. “My mom was an old nurse; she said only professionals…, the rest of you be somewhere else.” He said Sally’s family was allowed to go in after 12 minutes. Peter describes MAiD as compassionate and efficient. “I am so glad it was available. I think we were all glad… We

had watched mom suffer for far too long.” He said Sally thanked all the staff, but also asked them their life stories. “She was true to form, right to the last minute.” Peter is a historian by occupation and one of his greatest personal interests is religion and beliefs. “I think it’s a measure of a compassionate society,” he says of assisted dying. “It’s a tough moral quandary for each person and for society. Is it more compassionate to extend life or to end suffering? In Sally’s case she saw it as ending suffering, not ending life.” Peter says he’s grateful his family could prepare for Sally’s death and spend time with her, knowing what was coming. On the practical side, he says it allows families to put papers in order, to learn important details such as where the will is located. Interior Health provides statistics for B.C. From the start of MAiD in June 2016 to May 31 this year, the BC Coroner’s Service has recorded 66 MAiD deaths in Interior Health and 435 in B.C. IH states it cannot provide numbers of individual communities because of small numbers and privacy concerns. IH also states there is no designated location where MAiD can occur. To date in IH, it’s been provided in individual homes,

in hospitals, in residential care facilities and in hospice locations. “There may be times, given this is still a relatively new service in IH and in B.C., where there are challenges in accommodating MAiD in a specific location…,” wrote an IH spokesperson in an email. “In those cases, we would work with patients and families to find the best possible alternate location.” Trailblazing was not new to Sally Scales. Peter recounts a favourite memory of his mom’s nursing career. When she came to Salmon Arm from St. Paul’s Hospital in Vancouver, he says, she discovered that all the nurses were wearing skirts and starched caps, rather than the more practical pants the St. Paul’s nurses were wearing. Peter says the administrator shouted at her. He referred to the nurses as “his girls” and said he liked them in the uniforms. “That gave my mom her first crusade in Salmon Arm,” Peter says. “She hated being called a girl, especially by a hospital administrator. I think she might have taken it from a doctor.” In speaking publicly about medically assisted dying, Peter hopes his mother’s story will help reduce the stigma about death and MAiD. “They’re separate but interwoven. A lot of people have trouble talking, not necessarily about MAiD, but about death. It’s part of life and it’s inevitable.”

Healthy local food systems make for healthy communities LIVING Well

What’s a local food system, you ask? A local food system is the path food travels from when it is grown to when we eat it. It includes everything from growing, processing and transporting food. It also helps connect food to health, community, the environment and the economy. Local food systems benefit our health. Eating fruits and vegetables help protect us from chronic disease; yet, 63 per cent of British Columbians

are not eating enough fruits and vegetables. When fruits and vegetables are locally grown, access is improved in our communities, making it easier to get enough of these nutritious and delicious foods. A local food system also includes Indigenous foods, and protecting food lands and waters. By doing this, we not only support healthy eating, we also support core parts of culture and identity for Indig-

enous populations and communities. Agriculture can be hard on the environment, but many local food systems support sustainable farming methods by reducing pollution. Research is being done in B.C. to look at how to grow food in ways that use agricultural land to its full potential,while reducing the impact on the environment. Local food systems also help increase economic wellbeing through job creation. In 2014, 23,000 people worked in B.C.’s food system. Income earning jobs support a healthier lifestyle,

give people a sense of purpose and a social network. This, in turn, has a positive influence on our social, mental and physical health. Community residents, businesses, local governments, and health-care professionals all have an important role to play

Bud was predeceased by his wife of 62 years, Shirley, his parents Cecil and Ella Boyd, his brother Elwin Boyd and his sister Marie Radcliffe. Bud was born in Euphrasia, Township Grey County, Ontario.

DOUG JAMIESON It is with great apprehension and sorrow that we announce the passing of Doug Jamieson of Quesnel, BC. Born in Princeton, Doug spent his very early childhood in Comox where his Army dad was stationed, then grew up in Salmon Arm, BC, the oldest of 35 cousins. There he enjoyed an idyllic, adventurous youth filled with rock-hounding, fishing, and crow-taming, as well as many sports including lacrosse and basketball. Following high school, Doug spent one year employed as a plumber’s helper under the tutelage of his dad Jack and uncle Roland Jamieson and also working at the Canoe sawmill. However, he soon decided that university might be a better trailhead for his life’s path, and headed south to begin studies at UBC. His dad dropped off his country-boy son at his Vancouver boarding house with the concise parting words: “Write to your mother. I’ll see you at Christmas.” After marrying his university sweetheart Helen in Vancouver in 1966, the lovebird teachers moved to Quesnel in 1967 supposedly for one or two years! They became parents to Paula in 1973, Colin in 1975, Lana in 1978. Helen was a stay-at-home mom for 8 years, while Doug dedicated his 35-year career to teaching Social Studies and coaching girls basketball, first at Cariboo Junior School, then at Maple Drive Junior Secondary. Over the years, Doug earned the reputation for being a dedicated, fair and generous educator. He was the attested mentor to many basketball players on the Maple Drive Raiders team. He also returned to ‘school’ to complete his Master of Education degree at Gonzaga University while still involved with teaching, coaching and parenting. Life was very busy. Doug and Helen both retired from full-time teaching in 2002, and soon began dividing their time between volunteering for the Quesnel-Shiraoi Twinning Society, travelling around the world, and fawning over their growing collection of grandchildren. Wherever they were, Doug could almost always be seen with a map or a Lonely Planet book in his hands. In January 2017, Doug and Helen were in a motor vehicle collision that would result in Doug requiring a lengthy hospital stay. In the early morning hours of Saturday, May 27, Doug passed away in hospice with Helen at his side. Doug was predeceased by his parents Jack (1994) and Eveline (1985); his beloved sister Carolyn (2016); and his closest friends Ted Thompson and Case deVries. He will be missed by his wife Helen; children: Paula (Chris Cunin), Colin (Jane Spalding), Lana (Karl Lerbscher); grandchildren: Jack (18), Charlotte (13), Ashton (8), Etienne (5), Jules (3); also by his brother Ken (Pamela); brothersin-law Charlie Reum and Steve Zoobkoff; Aunties Nora Hopkins, Vi Hopkins and Eileen Hansen; nieces, nephews, many cousins, and friends...especially childhood friends Nick Barillaro, Bernie Kahlert, Ken Dahl, and Charlie McCarthy. A Celebration of Life was held at Correlieu Secondary School in Quesnel on June 17th.  Interment will be held at 2:00 pm on July 28, 2017 at Mt. Ida Cemetery in Salmon Arm, a town Doug always loved.  In this way, Doug will return to his parents and many relatives and friends from his early years on what would be his 75th birthday.  A potluck reception will be hosted by Ken and Pam Jamieson at their home following the graveside service.   The family welcomes all to the interment service and open house. To honour Doug’s memory, please support a young person’s personal development through sport and education by donating to the Doug Jamieson Legacy Fund at BMO or on gofundme.com/doug-jamieson-legacy-fund.

MACDONALD, LLOYD FRANKLIN 1923 – 2017 Lloyd Franklin MacDonald was born in Calgary on January 22, 1923. Passed away peacefully at home on June 29, 2017 at the age of 94. Dad joined the army in New Westminster when he was 16, and eventually was shipped to England and then to the continent during WW11.   Lloyd met and married Connie Harding in Guildford in 1945. After the war they settled in Surrey, where Lloyd worked for the municipality.  He rejoined the forces and was posted to Victoria.  Then on to Whitehorse, Edmonton, Cyprus and his final posting was back to Victoria. They then moved to Calgary before settling in Salmon Arm in 1979. Lloyd was predeceased by his wife Connie, son Michael, grandson Cameron and son-in-law Butch.   He is survived by his daughters Marie and Lynne, son Stephen (Christine), daughter-in-law Andrea, sister Dorothy, sisters-in-law Liz, Daphne and Rita, grandchildren Aaron (Wendy), Theresa (Jimmy), Ashley, Kyle, Chelsea and great-grandchildren, Hope, Olivia, Isabella and Bradley. Lloyd was a decorated veteran of WW11 and a proud member of the Royal Canadian Legion since 1942. Lloyd’s family wish to express their thanks and appreciation to Dr. S. Kirkman and Montebello Clinic staff, as well as Blane Ready and Shoppers Drug Mart staff for their kindness and respect shown to their old soldier.

Shuswap Rotary

INTERNATIONAL PROJECTS

Successful events provide spin-off for school lunch program & park Imagine a society in which 45% of the people live in poverty without enough food or water. An elementary school of 1200 students without running water, and at least one third of the students attending school without breakfast in their belly or lunch to eat. Imagine being a student whose parents are so poor that they cannot afford to pay CA $15 per year for school fees from Kindergarten to Grade 8. To go on to complete Grades 9 through 12 your parents need to pay CA $700 per year; how can they afford it? While education is the best way to solve most if not all of the problems in Kenyan society, many children even today do not attend school because their parents cannot afford to send them, or because they are more valuable to their family, carrying water and farming. The Mombasa North Coast Rotary Club in Kenya is immersed in such a society where the opportunities of “Service Above Self” is central in identifying needs and creating projects to help needy people develop themselves in Kenya. Shuswap Rotary has provided funding for a water system at the rural Kenya, Barani Elementary school which provides clean water for students, staff and the surrounding village community of Barani. 23 million of Africa’s 48 million people are malnourished children.
