Smoke and flames

The Salmon Arm Fire Department was quick to respond to a fire in a white Ford pickup on the Trans-Canada Highway beside Boston Pizza shortly before 8 a.m. Wednesday, July 19. Assistant Fire Chief Jim Nickles said Hall 3 firefighters were dispatched at 7:58, and arrived on scene and knocked down the fire by 8:08 a.m. An employee of a local landscaping company had to jump-start the truck earlier in the morning because the battery was dead. When he arrived at the Boston Pizza parking lot, he left the truck running to charge the battery. Half-an-hour later it burst into flames. “It must have been something electric, but there’s not much left under the hood or the dash,” said Nickles. “It’s just a mess, so determining what shorted out will be very difficult.” The landscapers were able to remove equipment and gas cans from the trailer that was attached to the truck. No one was injured.

Shuswap residents take in evacuees Barb Brouwer Salmon Arm Observer

Compassion and understanding - two key words in the way volunteers at the Columbia Shuswap Regional District’s Emergency Social Services reception room are helping wildfire evacuees. As of Tuesday night, 495 people had signed in at the Shuswap Emergency Program’s reception

centre in the Prestige Harbourfront Resort. “Some people have been moved around three times,” says Cindy Zobac, of those who were at other reception centres before being directed to directed to Salmon Arm . Derek Sutherland, CSRD Protective Services team leader, says the Shuswap Emergency Program has been fielding a lot of calls

from people offering to volunteer or room in their homes. He says ESS has provided a list of potential billets but is not matching anyone. In terms of where evacuees are staying, Sutherland says some are being billeted with local families, some are camping and one family is staying at the Salmon Arm Fairgrounds with their camper and three horses. Others are paying

their own way to stay in a hotel room. Because of the large numbers of people registering on Sunday and Monday, ESS has opened up another room where there are snacks and space for kids to play while evacuees wait to register.

City to install speed bumps near Blackburn Park

g yin hael r r a ic w c nd M s for o N ya ank ocal! e l h k Oa ors! T ing L K opp Sh

Temporary measures designed to slow traffic. As well as the RCMP raising awareness on the road, Citizens on Patrol may be asked to set up Speed Watch in summer and the use of the city’s speed reader board is being considered. “Staff have reviewed several possible traffic-calming options for this location, keeping in mind that a more permanent solution will be developed when the roadway is properly designed and constructed in the future,” said Niewenhuizen, noting the plan proposes the temporary installation of “no-post” barriers and speed bumps, along with appropriate signage. “Staff feel that this solution will provide a narrowing of the roadway which will assist in raising driver awareness along this section of Fifth Street SW.” The speed bumps will be removed each fall to allow for snow-clearing operations and replaced in the spring of

each year. The costs associated with this temporary installation are in the range of $15,000. City staff plan to take a request forward to the 2018 capital budget for a detailed design for this section of road, complete with sidewalks, curb and gutter street lighting etc. in order to provide a more permanent solution. Coun. Alan Harrison thanked Niewenhuizen for finding a suitable, temporary solution so quickly. “This is acceptable to me because the purpose is to make the area safer,” he said. “We’ve done the play part, but not the road part; speed bumps will slow it down.” Coun. Kevin Flynn agreed, acknowledging that although there are large signs at either end of the long stretch of road, by the time he gets to the middle he’s forgotten it’s a playground.

City of Salmon Arm councillors were unanimous in their approval of temporary measures to slow traffic on Fifth Street SW between Blackburn Park and the Salmon Arm Fairgrounds. Rob Niewenhuizen, director of engineering and public works, was asked to provide an informational report at the June 17 meeting when council reviewed a May 5 letter from Kailey Cannon and 10 others, expressing concern about the frequency of speeding along that portion of the road. Niewenhuizen explained that the Blackburn master plan calls for improvements to Fifth Street SW that include the addition of a boulevard down the centre of the roadway, bump outs, parking stalls and a traffic circle to help slow traffic through the area. “These road ameni-

ties have not been built as the development of the park has been a phased approach, with the primary focus being on completing the park infrastructure: skateboard park, play structures, soccer fields, splash park, life trail system, etc.,” he said in his report. “There has been a noticeable increase in park usage with the opening of the new Rotary spray park this year.” Niewenhuizen says this has put a strain on the existing on-street parking as the roadway is not entirely paved; which creates a problem with vehicles parking in different angles along the gravel portions of the road. This issue was reviewed by the City’s Traffic Safety Committee on June 8, said Niewenhuizen, pointing out there are future plans for park entrance gates, build outs and other improvements based on the Blackburn master plan.

New dog park met with a growl Citizens upset with lack of shade, benches and more.

get a fenced-off area started so it would take some pressure off the fall fairgrounds.” He said the lack of trees is no different than running dogs out in the ball fields at Blackburn. The fence had to go up because of the contracting schedule, he explains. As for comparing it to Kamloops and other dog parks, “first of all we don’t have the budgets they do, and it’s hard to compare things that are well

established,” he says. Niewenhuizen says the fence will stay, as the posts have been concreted in, and the dog park will be expanded as work on the ball diamonds proceeds. Spring flooding pushed the city works schedule back, he notes. Niewenhuizen says the approved budget for the project is $35,000 and so far $10,000 has been spent on fencing. “Eventually Klahani Park will be a very lush green space.”

It was a shocker.” Cruickshank adds that when the temperature is 32 C, she’s not about to put dogs in a sand pit. There’s dust, “and it’s hotter than a firecracker.” Rob Niewenhuizen, the city’ director of public works, emphasizes the current dog park is just a first step. “We haven’t got any irrigation in there yet, no trees in there yet, so it’s just a start.” Trees will probably be planted in the fall, he says, and city staff still need to meet to decide what will be irrigated. “We just wanted to

CAREER FAIR

A couple of concerned dog owners predict the city’s new dog park at Klahani Park won’t be met with many wagging tails or excited barks. The city, however, calls it just a start – a first step. Because she lives nearby, Sarah Figgess uses the Klahani area in South Canoe to help her complete 10,000 steps a day. She is not pleased with the dog park, which she prefers to call a “compound.” “They’ve fenced an area that amounts to one-third of an acre. It’s an area that has no grass, no shelter, no shade.” She notes that dog play is a social time both for the handlers and the dogs, yet there’s no seating for people. Figgess estimates there could be 8,000 people in Salmon Arm who are dog owners – and voters. “For a town this size, not to have a dedicated dog park is shameful.” She also refers to all the hotel rooms in town that are pet friendly, meaning lots of incoming dogs and that there are more pet

food stores than grocery stores. “Dog walking is a year-round occupation, more than baseball or other things. Where are these 8,000 people walking their dogs?” She says many go to Blackburn Park, to school grounds, to the fields and park at Little Mountain, to the fairgrounds. Figgess says a lot of cities such as Kamloops have a large dog park and a small dog park joined together on one or more acres of land, complete with cleaning supplies, shade and water, benches, adequate drainage and grass. But not Salmon Arm’s. “It is literally a blank piece of paper with a chain link fence around it. It is, in a word, pathetic.” She sees it as inhumane with no shade, and she doesn’t see any reason why people would change their dog-walking habits to bring their dogs there. Barb Cruickshank, coordinator for Fido Friday with the Lady Striders, voices a similar view. “It’s disheartening to see a sign go up calling that a dog park. There’s

ONLINE SAFETY BEGINS AT HOME.

Barking bothers neighbours No bylaw to help stifle canine wake-up call. Barb Brouwer Salmon Arm Observer

Peter Navratil has lived in the Mallory Road area of Deep Creek for 41 peaceful years. That changed the weekend after Canada Day when a large, cattle-type trailer showed up at night to a property next door, where a barn-like structure had recently been built. Riding in that truck and now inside the barn most of the time were 25 dogs of various breeds. While Navratil is not opposed to dogs, the hour-long, early morning bark-a-thon that is repeated when the woman renting the property returns home from work in the evening, is becoming unbearable. “She lets them out between 5 and 6 a.m. for an hour or so and then again at night, and every other dog in the neighbourhood joins in,” he says. “We find it unpleasant; I am at the point of wearing sound protection because I just can’t take it.” Navratil filed a com-

plaint with the Columbia Shuswap Regional District, who, after determining the property is not housing a boarding kennel or puppy mill, told him there is nothing the CSRD can do because there is no dog control bylaw in the area. While Electoral Area D does have some dog control, the bylaw covers the opposite side of Highway 97B in the Ranchero Area. In order to get a similar bylaw that would restrict dog ownership in the Mallory Road area, a petition would have to be delivered to CSRD. “We need to receive a petition with a significant number of residents in that specified area that are requesting the CSRD to investigate the feasibility of establishing a dog-control service within that area,” says CSRD’s Community Services team leader Ryan Nitchie, noting staff is currently reviewing the bylaw, getting a legal opinion and hoping to have something before the board soon. “If we got a petition,

Woman loses home to fire Barb Brouwer Salmon Arm Observer

A Salmon Arm woman is without a roof over her head after an early morning fire on Monday. Firefighters from three Salmon Arm halls responded to a report of fire on the roof of a trailer at Countryside Mobile Manor shortly after 8 a.m. Firefighters from halls 1, 2 and 3 responded to the structure fire in the mobile home park, located on Highway 97B near the Salmon Arm Golf Course. Fire Chief Brad Shirley says firefighters quickly knocked the blaze down, but were unable to easily access the seat of the fire due to multiple layers of ceiling and tin roofs. “As the structure was in close proximity to trees and a forested area, crews also

hold criminals’ feet to the fire

We have written about many heroic and altruistic deeds done during this awful stretch of wildfires that have sent residents of the Southern Interior and Cariboo fleeing to larger centres for safety. And, as befits human nature, we are now reporting on those on the opposite side of the spectrum, the cretins among us who see tragedy as an opportunity to re-victimize those impacted by the fires. Mounties arrested 10 youth and adults in Williams Lake and 100 Mile House for allegedly looting (or planning to loot) homes left empty by evacuees. A family was scammed out of $350 when an online rental posting turned out to be fake. And, in Quesnel, there have been reports of men posing as police officers telling residents they must immediately leave their properties. Scams in and of themselves are frustrating. When undertaken during a provincial state of emergency, it is particularly despicable. When the accused in these cases eventually plead guilty or are convicted, perhaps the sentence should be somehow connected to the circumstances of the crime. If the court proceedings end quickly, adding these miscreants to the fire lines wouldn’t be a bad idea. Having them spend a long time helping clean the charred debris in fire zones would be apt, as would sentencing them to many hours volunteering in emergency operations centres later this summer or during a future natural disaster. Sentencing the guilty to time in prison (where they will only learn to become better criminals) or handing them fines would not be nearly as effective in conveying to them the severity of their crimes. Having these offenders immersed in the tragic aftermath of a disaster on which they sought to capitalize would be appropriate and, we believe, could very well cut down on the recidivism rates among those who used the flames as fodder for their own foolishness. -Kamloops This Week

time outside worth the effort the great outdoors James Murray If it were possible to somehow turn back the hands of time to the moment when I hooked my very first fish, it would most likely be somewhere along the banks of Chase Creek. I would have been all of five or six years of age. But alas, the memory of that moment is lost in the foggy annals of time. I do know there was a photo of me taken on my ninth birthday, proudly holding a new rod and reel. I also know that, as a young boy, I spent many an hour casting to fish within holding pools or beneath the shadow of an overhanging branch in many a creek or stream. It wasn’t until I was a bit older that I had the opportunity to fish from a boat. Either way I was in my glory. Stream fishing, like stillwater angling, has its own appeal - if not advantages. Fishing from the banks of a stream allows one to more easily recognize potential holding spots such

as runs, riffles and seems, and then, simply make a cast upstream, thus allowing the current to carry their line into the the feeding zone. An angler need only walk along, making their way from holding pool to holding pool, in search of feeding fish. Now having said that, one must also be able to cast their line, especially a fly line, without snagging it on any nearby branches. I have managed to make such blunders into an art form. In a boat, one might be able to cover a greater amount of castable water from one spot, as well as perhaps enjoy the luxury of having one’s gear sitting at their side at all times without having to carry it from one spot to the next all day long. But like I said, each has its own advantages and appeal. I should also point out that when I have spent the day fishing from the banks of a river or stream with little to show for my efforts, I

am quick to point out that I am mostly a stillwater fisherman. On those occasions when I have had little or no luck casting to fish from a boat, I am equally willing to plead that I am at heart a stream fisherman, and that is where my true skills lie – “lie” perhaps being the key word here. Be that as it may, I am not above using whatever excuse presents itself to cover my ineptness. In some ways I have made the use of excuses into an art form. Fishing to me has always been a form of relaxation. However, sometimes it seems like just too much of an effort to hook up the boat, load all the fishing gear into the Jeep, make sure the batteries for the electric trilling motor are charged – never mind lifting them into the boat. Then there’s all the other stuff, like making sure everything is tied down and secured, checking the tires on the trailer and, of course, not forgetting the tackle box or cooler. When I was a kid, I just grabbed my rod and headed down to the creek. Fishing was far less complicated. Perhaps that is why I like

stream fishing so much. It is a much more unencumbered process to say the least. What I need to bring along I can usually carry in the pockets of my fishing vest. My point being that when I fish along the banks of a river or stream, I feel unencumbered. I feel free to concentrate on my cast and breath in all the sights and sounds and smells around me. I am comfortable standing knee deep in fast flowing waters, and feel a certain satisfaction knowing that with each cast I am sharing the banks with all the anglers who have stood there before me. I have caught trout in small streams as well as giant sturgeon in the Fraser River. I have fought wild steelhead and salmon in rivers that are a part of sport fishing history. I have eaten my catch as a shore lunch and returned many a fish to the waters from where it came. I have enjoyed countless hours casting to the hopes of a fish and returned home many an evening with little to show for my effort, other than the satisfaction of having spent time on the water. That, in itself, is and has always been well worth the effort.

Hang-glider pilot survives crash RCMP Report A Kelowna man was able to walk away from a hang-glider crash on Queest Mountain. The 31-year-old was checked for minor injuries following the crash on Friday afternoon, July 14. Police were seeking the hang-glider pilot after receiving a report from two citizens who had seen a hang glider crash into the trees on Queest. Sgt. Murray McNeil said Shuswap Search and Rescue were called to assist with the search, along with the services of an RCMP

dog handler and an RCMP helicopter out of Kelowna. Search and rescue were on their way to the hang-gliding launch, six kilometres up a forest service road. But before their arrival, the missing man was found by Salmon Arm Observer newspaper reporter, Jim Elliott, who was already on his way up Queest to the launch area. Elliott said the man had hiked approximately two-kilometres from the crash site, and appeared to

be exhausted. Moments later, someone from search and rescue arrived on scene and informed the men that an ambulance was waiting for at the bottom of the forest service road. Elliott transported the Kelowna man to awaiting paramedics. “The reporter drove the man to an ambulance where he was checked for minor injuries,” said McNeil. “The man was very fortunate to receive only minor injuries in the crash as the mountain terrain was very steep with tall dense timber.” The man told Elliott he’d run into some turbulence before his glider went down.

Cancer, address a potentially messy situation before it gathers too much steam. Communication is all that’s needed to ensure cooler heads ultimately prevail.

Swing a club for hospital foundation Barb Brouwer Salmon Arm Observer

Get out your clubs and open your wallets for the Shuswap Golf Tournament to benefit the Shuswap Hospital Foundation. The third annual charity open takes place at Shuswap Lake Estates Golf and Country Club on Saturday, Aug. 26, with a 12:30 p.m. shot-gun start. Fiona Harris, the foundation’s director of development, advises prospective golfers to register soon, as last year’s event was sold out a full month prior to tee-off. The 2016 tournament raised $80,000 that was used for an operating room upgrade for Shuswap Lake General Hospital. This year, the funds will be used to provide an upgrade from an analogue to digital format

in the imaging department’s X-ray trauma room, which the foundation funded in 2011. Currently, cassettes containing the X-rays must be changed between every picture, says Kim Mead, manager of Imaging Services. “With a digital system, it means the plate stays permanently in the table and on the wall stand and means you no longer have to change cassettes,” Mead says, noting information is shown on a screen immediately, without technicians having to develop the plates. “Exposures can be taken back-to-back and it (digital system) minimizes radiation.” There is room for 88 golfers in the charity golf tournament and as of last week, 40 golfers had already signed up. The tournament begins with a 12:30 p.m. shot-gun start and fea-

Salmon Arm Observer/Shuswap Market News

Friday, July 21, 2017 Page A11

Barb Brouwer Salmon Arm Observer

Enjoy a weekend of Canadian plays, interspersed with good food and great entertainment at Shuswap Theatre this weekend. “Theatre on the Edge 2017 is shaping up to be better and bolder than ever before, and that is saying something,” states Jaci Metivier. “We’re sticking with the winning combination of a one-hour show followed by an hour of live music…” Enjoy seven different shows with 14 performances over the weekend (each show is performed twice). • Me, the Queen and a Coconut – Friday, July 21 at 3 p.m. Andrew Bailey’s hilarious and poignant solo show chronicles his time living and working as a servant at St. George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle. Popular with teens, seniors and those in between, Me, the Queen, and a Coconut has sold out nearly every performance it’s ever had, including those at the Montreal, Winnipeg, Edmonton, and Victoria Fringe Festivals. Bailey has long mixed comedy with serious subjects. His solo shows (including The Adversary, Limbo and Putz) have won awards across the country. His comedic work with Victoria’s Atomic Vaudeville Cabaret has been acclaimed for more than a decade and yielded the satiric monologue, Why Rape is Sincerely Hilarious, which has more than 2.2 million YouTube views and is featured on websites. His first novel, The Rite of James Biddle, is published by Bayeux Arts. • The Reunion Project – Friday, July 21 at 5 p.m., Sunday, July 23 at 1 p.m. Ida and Old Baldy’s Seniors’ Theatre invites you to accompany them to the halls of learning for the Pinecrest Secondary School graduation class of 1967’s 50th Class Reunion. Some members of the class are excited to return; others are unsure, while others simply refuse. As Jeannie and Beannie and Thunder Boy and Lyle look back over the

past 50 years, they realize that much about themselves has changed, but at the core, their experience of their high school days is still a part of who they are. Ida and Old Baldy’s Seniors’ Theatre Project has been active in Salmon Arm and Blind Bay for more than five years. The goal is to promote healthy lifestyles for the players and fellow seniors through physical and intellectual activity and social interaction. Last spring, the project took a new direction with script-writing workshops with last year’s Theatre on the Edge production of The Essence of Me being the first creation of those incredibly active minds. • The Most Honest Man in the World – Friday, July 21 at 7 p.m., Saturday, July 22 at 3 p.m. Andrew Wade builds a working lie detector machine onstage and straps himself in. Using stories, music, apps and tap shoes, Wade looks at old relationships and insecurities as he explores his personal obsession with honesty and tries to learn how to honestly let go. Wade is an award-winning actor and playwright from Richmond, B.C. He is a graduate from the University of Victoria and the Na-

tional Voice Intensive, was selected as one of Richmond’s 30-under-30 in 2013 and won ‘Pick of the Fringe’ at the Vancouver Fringe Festival in 2015 for his writing for TITUS!: The Light and Delightful Musical Comedy of Titus Andronicus. • Too Lazy to Write – Friday, July 21 at 9 p.m., Saturday, July 22 at 5 p.m. Monkey With A Button is the Interior’s premier improv comedy group, performing out of Vernon for five years. They are excited to bring their unique brand of comedy to Salmon Arm. Prepare to laugh and shout as our improvisers perform scenes based on audience suggestions. Don’t miss this chance to let your inner “Monkey” run wild. Who knows? You might even wind up on stage! • The Supermarket – Saturday, July 22 at 11 a.m., Sunday, July 23 at 3 p.m. In a supermarket, cashiers run into problems over avocados, nuts, percentages and points for frequent customers. Customers meet each other for lunch, friends encounter friends that have forgotten to return borrowed items, staff deals with toothaches and a wrapper raps. Salmon Arm Actors’ Studio presents this collection o f short

scenes that offer a funny (and familiar) look at a visit to your grocery store. Longtime teacher and director James Bowlby began Salmon Arm Actors’ Studio in order to continue teaching theatre. It has since grown into a dinner theatre company with five shows produced so far at a variety of venues in Salmon Arm. The Supermarket is the first show written and produced for Theatre on the Edge. • Saucy Fops – Saturday, July 22 at 1 p.m., Sunday, July 23 at 7 p.m. As always, the Fops will present a series of short, comedic plays – lots of movement, music and humour. The Saucy Fops write, create and produce all of their own work. They have toured across Canada with the Canadian Fringe Festival to much acclaim, earning themselves three Best of Fest Awards. They call Kamloops home and have been doing productions there for 15 years. The Fops performed in the first two Theatre on the Edge festivals and were a big hit both times. • The F Words – Saturday, July 22 at 9 p.m., Sunday, July 23 at 5 p.m. Fierce, funny and fearless, follow Yvette Dudley-Neuman’s Fran and friends on this fast-paced frolic. Experience Fran’s unrelenting compulsion to explore the “F” words from fat, forty, forgotten and F*cked to F??? Receiver of an Honourable Mention at the Theatre BC Playwriting Competition, this multi-media solo show is lively, tough, sexy, hilarious, relatable and transformational. Dudley-Neuman is also an avid writer, producer and singer. She produced, wrote and played the lead role in her own short film and two full-length stage plays. Visit the Edge Club between for food, local craft beer and wine. Single tickets are still $10. Three, five and seven-packs of tickets available for the bargain prices of $25, $40 and $55.

Award-winning actor and playwright Andrew Wade’s The Most Honest Man in the World is one of the plays in this year’s Theatre on the Edge, which plays out at Shuswap Theatre July 21 to 23.

Viewing picky eaters from a cultural perspective HealtHy bites Serena Caner It was a riot. Children running around shouting with joy and excitement. They were ripping off their t-shirts and swinging them like nets in the sky. You would think M&Ms were dropping from the heavens. In fact, they were ngombe, a flying termite that comes out in hoards after the first rains. I watched in awe as children plucked off

their wings and popped them in their mouth like candy. For days afterwards, my nsima would be served with these roasted insects. As I struggled to choke them down, the Malawians ate them with a zest and vigour that suggested that these were a delicacy, a special event. Why did I experience taste so differently? First of all, in Cana-

dian culture, insects are not seen as a protein source, but a pest. We associate insects in food with spoilage. Insects in your food would be reason enough to throw it away. Secondly, human taste preferences begin in the womb. Flavours pass from mother’s diet into amniotic fluid and later into breastmilk. As the baby is weaned, he or she seeks flavours similar to the mother’s diet. In fact, all throughout history, children have been raised to appreciate the tastes of their particular region

and environment. My youngest is far from an adventurous eater and I have observed that picky eating has become extremely common in our society. One cause may relate to how we are introduced to food early in

life. In Canada, children are often raised on sweet and generic tasting foods like formulas and fruit purees. We avoid feeding our children bitter or pungent flavours. Are we training our children to prefer refined foods,

high in salt and sugar right from the start? I don’t think my children will ever be excited about eating insects, but I can hope that one day she will take a bite of curry and enjoy it. In traditional cultures, children learn to eat all

sorts of flavours and textures, starting at a young age. Feeding children “kid foods” may seem easier initially, but the longer we wait to introduce “real foods,” the harder it is for them to accept them.

Striving to protect Gardom Lake Barb Brouwer Salmon Arm Observer

Gardom Lake is thriving. And the Gardom Lake Stewardship Society wants to keep it that way. Sarah Weaver, secretary of the society, says a large mass of freshwater shrimp was discovered in the creek that runs into the lake, something she had never seen before. That freshwater shrimp is a sign the lake is a productive one with good nutrients, with lots of wildlife and a lot of food for fish, says Weaver explaining that Gardom Lake is in the middle of its life cycle, with the beginning being a clear lake without nutrients to the end, when it silts in and is full of algae. “From a stewardship perspective, we want to keep other nutrients out of the lake because it will speed up the aging of the lake.,” says Weaver, noting that while

aging is a natural process, human activity can speed it up. “While the water quality is good and the lake is still clear, it’s getting higher in some things like phosphorous, so really want to educate and manage the lake well.” Weaver says a lake management plan was adopted two summers ago by the Columbia Shuswap Regional District and stakeholders, including regional district, the Ministry of Environment, Gardom Lake Bible Camp, the society that manages Gardom Lake Park, a rep from Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations (FLNRO), Ministry of Agriculture and Gardom Lake Stewardship Society. They meet annually in an effort to “keep the plan alive rather than have it sit on shelf.” At this year’s meeting, Weaver says there was discussion and interest in educating the growing numbers of people

who use the lake, including those with kayaks, canoes and boats with electric motors. At the hand launch at Teal Road, small bricks have been placed in order to reduce turbidity at the shoreline. At the Musgrave hand launch, CSRD has installed a sign about the resident turtles about how to protect them and is considering signage to protect the loons as well. “The loons are more disturbed by kayaks than by fishing boats because they come in really close to the nests,” says Weaver. “Sometimes kayaks comes between the loons and their chicks and people don’t realize their calls are really calls are distress.” From the society’s perspective, low impact recreation of kayaks, canoes and electric motors is a welcome development, following the banning of gas-powered motors on the lake.

But it is important users know and are respectful of the behaviour of wildlife. “We still have people who try to catch the western painted turtles,” says Weaver, pointing out they are a protected species. “We’re lucky to have them, but they are on decline in many parts of the province.” At present, the western painted turtle is on the provincial blue list. This means they are

considered vulnerable to habitat loss, and susceptible to human and natural disturbances. Habitat is being lost because of pollution and waterway interference due to damming, agriculture and urbanization of waterfronts. When visiting Gardom Lake, Weaver offers the advice she gave to her own children when they were small: “The three Ls – look, learn, leave them alone.”

Rein Janzen Photo

Whether fishing, kayaking or canoeing, Gardom Lake users are asked to stay away from the resident loons and their nesting area near the Musgrave Road hand launch.

Court reinstates band councillors

Martha Wickett Salmon Arm Observer

Amidst long-standing community divisions, four councillors have been reinstated to the Adams Lake Band council by the Federal Court of Appeal. Chief Paul Michel held a press conference July 13 to provide his view of the ruling and to talk about next steps. He explained the appeal court rejected the decisions of the band’s community panel completely, including its prohibiting of the councillors from running for office in 2018. If the petition to remove the councillors were to be pursued further, the panel would have to adhere to stipulations outlined by the court. Seated at the board table in the band’s administration building in Chase with Chief Michel were Brandy Jules and Ronnie Jules, two of the councillors in question. Absent were Gina Johnny and Doris Johnny, the other two people reinstated. Most years the band council would be made up of five councillors, and Michel expressed how difficult it’s been to operate band affairs

Ronnie Jules, Chief Paul Michel and Brandy Jules gather in Chase for a press conference on July 13. without a quorum. All four were removed from office by the community panel, a group of five band members who decide, under the band’s elections rules, on all petitions to dispute an election or remove a band member from office. Petitions must have 10 signatures. Doris Johnny was elected in February 2015 and removed in December 2015 by the panel, who agreed with a petition alleging she had breached her oath of office. Her challenge of the decision through the Federal Court was rejected. A byelection Continued on A22

Chase

Panel to address election rules Continued from A21

was held, which Gina Johnny won. Gina Johnny, along with the two Jules councillors, was removed from office in October 2016 for alleged breach of oath of office. They, too, unsuccessfully challenged the decision in the Federal Court. Then they went to the Federal Court of Appeal, as did Doris Johnny, which ruled that they be reinstated. Michel said more communication will have to take place, as the position Doris was to be reinstated to is now occupied by Gina. At the start of the judges’ reasons for their decision, they made note that “it is important to record the position of the respondent Adams Lake Indian Band on this appeal.” They point out that when the ousted councillors told the court they were going to appeal, the band stated the appeal should be dismissed, ie: the band opposed the appeal/ reinstatement of the councillors. “However, shortly before the appeal was argued, a notice of change of solicitors was filed,” stated the judges. The new lawyers said the band did not take any position on the appeal, ie: it was no longer opposing the councillors’ position. The judges considered Doris Johnny’s appeal separately. Regarding the three, the judges pointed out that particularly when evidence conflicts, it’s important that every community panel member hear every witness.

That did not happen. They also stated that if a panel member excuses themselves due to a conflict of interest on a matter, they should not be able to rule on other issues related to it. And the judges also stated that the panel’s reasons for a ruling should be spelled out with enough detail that a court can tell if the decision is reasonable. Regarding Doris Johnny, the judges stated the panel gave no explanation why the comments Johnny had made at a meeting merited her removal. As a result, the judges considered the decision unreasonable. Asked about the costs

of the legal battles and whether the band has been paying for both the band and the formerly ousted councillors, Michel said the costs are still in the hands of the lawyers. He also said: “Some aspects we were paying both sides and some we were not.” Regarding the future of the community panel, Michel referred the question to Shirley Kine, the band’s executive director. She said: “We’re working as a committee to address the election rules; there is no provision to remove them currently…” Michel did say, “there’s almost been 100 per cent approval

that our community panel and our customs elections rule is severely flawed and there’s a commitment from our community to amend or eliminate sections that our community has agreed have been the source and foundation of this disunity and chaos…” Kine added she is “very hopeful of the mending and healing that can come out of this. I think we’ve learned about some of our policies and processes that need to be fixed and I am one of those people who would like to address some of those things that are systemic as opposed to personal…”

Chase

Charges pending against driver DUI

RCMP Report

On July 13, at 12:30 a.m., Chase RCMP received a report of a motor-vehicle collision on the Trans-Canada Highway, approximately five kilometres east of Chase. Cpl. Scott Linklater reports a Toyota Corolla was westbound in the passing lane while overtaking a tractor trailer unit. The driver of a GMC truck attempted to pass both vehicles by driving in the eastbound lanes. An oncoming vehicle forced the truck to enter the lane of the Corolla, which struck the side of the tractor trailer. No injuries were sustained. Charges under the Motor Vehicle Act are pending for the driver of the GMC truck.

On July 13, at 9 p.m., Chase RCMP officers were on patrol on Shuswap Avenue in Chase when they noted a red Hyundai Accent with improper registration. A traffic stop was conducted. The driver, a 46-year-old Chase man, was found to be driving while impaired by alcohol. He was issued a 90day immediate roadside suspension and his vehicle was impounded for 30 days.

Butt out

Chase RCMP have received several reports of cigarette butts being thrown from the windows of moving vehicles. Throwing a lit cigarette from the window of a vehicle could result in a $575 fine pursuant to the Wildfire Act.

Help for fire victims The Chase Chamber is stepping up to help those impacted by B.C.’s wildfires. In response to the state of emergency declared throughout the province, the chamber is now collecting donations for evacuees. Wanted are financial donations (receipts available through the Red Cross), clothing for all ages and food and personal supplies. Donations are being collected at the chamber/tourism info office at 400 Shuswap Avenue.

Meanwhile, Chase Lions Club members have been hard at work with members of other B.C. Lions Clubs feeding wildefire evacuees at the Kamloops (Kamloopa) Powwow grounds. The Lions are also looking for donations, be they financial or supplies like water. The Chase Lions are also looking for donations of outdoor games and activities, including a Bocce set. They’re to help pass the time for evacuees and take their minds off their worries.

Wellness INFORMATION DESIGNED TO PROMOTE AND ENHANCE YOUR WELLBEING

Third-hand cigarette smoke can be harmful FAMILY CHIROPRACTIC Dr. Warren Gage We have come a long way in our understanding about the risks of cigarette smoking. It was only as far back as the late 1940’s and early 1950’s that ads were on the television, in newsprint, and even in med-

ical journals that “More Doctors smoke Camels than any other cigarette”. The advertising done by tobacco manufacturers was so effective that as recent as 1991 the American Medical Association published a report stating

kindergarteners could more easily recognize the “Joe Camel” character than Barbie or Mickey Mouse. It was shortly after this report that their marketing program was brought to an end. Fast forward to 2017 and it is now fully understood that smoking and second-hand smoke cause many health problems; however, this information is still not enough to sway a lot of people

from this life threatening habit. In researching the health issues around smoking I recently came across a term that I had not heard which is “thirdhand smoke”. The Mayo Clinic describes it as “residual nicotine and other chemicals left on a variety of indoor surfaces by tobacco smoke”. While primary and secondhand smoking are common knowledge, thirdhand smoke

is now being shown to also have a negative effect on health. When a person smokes inside a building, opening doors and windows will eventually clear out primary and secondhand smoke; however, after prolonged smoking indoors, the surfaces inside rooms will begin to accumulate the toxins from the smoke. This means that even once the air is clear of smoke, toxic pollut-

ants stay on bedsheets, floors, walls, clothing and furniture. Not only do these toxins remain for months, but when combined with household cleaners they can react and produce even more toxic chemicals. In fact, thridhand smoke may actually be more of a risk to non-smokers as these toxins can remain on objects for months. So if you are a smoker or someone you know is

still partaking in this dangerous habit, there is even more research giving smokers one more reason to quit. Not only will quitting help the health of the individual smoker, but it will also help all of those around them. Dr. Warren Gage is a family wellness Chiropractor who can be reached at Harbourfront Family Chiropractic at (250) 803-0224.

Tips for transitioning to a new home or condo for retirement (NC) Although many of us dream of the leisurely days of retirement, the transition from a busy working life to days of unscheduled free time can be daunting. If your retirement plans involve leaving an urban centre and starting fresh in a small community, the transition can feel overwhelming. “Today’s hot city real estate market makes leaving urban centres and retiring in a small town a sound financial choice, but there is unquestionably an adjustment,” explains Mariah Hamilton, regional director at Millborne Real Estate in Kingston, Ontario. Hamilton specializes in helping retirees find new homes in eastern Ontario. She says there are some simple steps to make the transition smooth. Hamilton recommends making multiple visits to the town to make sure it

has the stores, services and activities you like. Is there a local library, a bakery, a good selection of restaurants? Linger at the local coffee shop and get a feel for the locals. Are they chatty and welcoming, or closed off to strangers? If you enjoy the arts, is there an opportunity to get involved with the local theatre? If you’re a boater, are there spectacular waterways to explore? For example, communities like Gananoque on the St. Lawrence River is very popular with retirees

as it has so much to offer. Retiring and downsizing is a big psychological shift and the process can be daunting. These expert tips will help: 1. Start planning several years before you want to retire, as many people realize too late they should have downsized sooner. Assess your financial situation and explore all of your options. Do you want to remain near friends and family? 2. If you know you want a condo, you will get a better property at a

significantly better price if you make a down payment during pre-construction and you’ll be able to customize your suite. The property will be ready

when you are set to retire. 3. Retirement brings a different lifestyle and a different home, so allow yourself plenty of time to adjust. If possible, grad-

ually ease your working hours and practice slowing down. Spend as much time as possible in the community where you

plan to move. Find more information online at stoneandsouthcondos.ca. www.newscanada.com

SASCU rallies for fire victims BUSineSS Spotlight Leah Blain SASCU Credit Union is supporting Canadian Red Cross efforts on the ground to help those affected by the wildfires. SASCU has committed $5,000 for British Columbians who have been evacuated from their homes and they are encouraging their members to support the Red Cross as well. Donations will help provide immediate relief such as cots, blankets, family reunification and financial assistance for food, clothing, and personal needs. Beyond meeting immediate needs, donations may also help re-entry and go towards more longterm recovery, resiliency and preparedness. Donations can be made online at www. redcross.ca/BCFires/ CreditUnionsofBCandON.

“This joint effort of credit unions throughout B.C. and Ontario reflects the strength and values of our cooperative system,” says Barry Delaney, CEO, SASCU Financial Group. “On behalf of SASCU, we would like to extend our heartfelt appreciation for our communities’ generosity and for all those battling these wildfires.” Wearable Art Art just isn’t for walls anymore, it can become part of a person’s wardrobe. Local artist Becky McMahon was personally invited by Vida Designs to become part of their team after they had viewed her work on her web site. “It’s definitely an adventure, it’s been fun,” says Becky. “They do overlays of the art,

sandwiches, rice bowls, pakoras, falafels, and desserts, they sell local wine, beer, and cocktails, and fresh juices. “We have fresh herbs growing on the patio. I go on the deck, clip them and juice them - it doesn’t get fresher than that.” They have a Vietnamese chef whose special dish (Banh Mi) is already a best seller, as well as their non-traditional quesadilla. The Treehouse Bistro is family friendly with a kids’ menu and play area. They are located above the Urban Market at 1035 Lakeshore Dr West. They are open 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday, although sometimes they close early on Sunday if they run out of food. They are closed Monday and Tuesday. On the weekends they open later, sometimes until 11:30 p.m. with entertainment. To contact them, phone 250- 8328120 or go to their Facebook page.

Healthy options The Tree House Bistro’s farm-to-table style menu is proving to be very popular says Corine Gjelaj.

Elsie passed away peacefully at home with her family by her side. Born in Croydon, England weighing only 2lb 4oz, she was the lone survivor of triplets. She came into the world with a determination and tenacity that lasted her lifetime. Moving to Canada in 1973 she settled in Calgary before coming to Salmon Arm in 2010 to live with her daughter. Pre deceased by husband Len in 2011, she was married 73 years. Elsie was a keen gardener, singer, painter, knitter, seamstress and crafter. She was the heart of the home and even though she loved many pursuits, none compared to being a wife and mother. Her laughter was infectious, her capacity for drinking tea enormous. Multitasking came naturally; she could read a ‘who dunnit’ whilst knitting, eating an apple and drinking a cuppa~ she called that relaxing. Elsie leaves her three children Jean (Allan) Andrews, Vic (Glenda) Carr, Christine (Brad) Armstrong; eight Grandchildren, eight Great- Grandchildren and three Great Great Grandchildren. Elsie will rest along side Len at Mount Ida. Thank you to all the Community Care staff who helped us to keep her at home, we couldn’t have done it without you. If you want to remember Elsie, drop some coins into the Salvation Army kettle – she loved the way they sung.

MCKAY, VALERIE ANN {NEE DAKUS} Feb 14, 1950- July 14, 2017 With heavy hearts, fond memories and love, we announce that Val went from the arms of her devoted husband, Larry, to the arms of the Angels on the afternoon of July 14th, 2017, in Salmon Arm, British Columbia. She was predeceased by her father, John Dakus, brothers Frank and Lorne, nephew, Troy and her beloved cat “Patches”.Val will be greatly missed by her best friend and husband, Larry, who spent every day of her journey by her side to the end, by her son, Brian, her mother, Dorothy, sister, Deloris, brother Dan, her special cat, “Mikee” and by all those who had the privilege of knowing her! Originally from Edmonton, AB., she shared residences with Larry in Grande Centre AB., C.F.B. Moose Jaw, SK., Fort Sask., AB., Blind Bay, B.C., winters in Yuma, Arizona and a final move to Salmon Arm, in July 2016. Val had a career in Hairdressing and I think I can honestly, say that after they were married on March 25th,1978, Larry never had another haircut by anyone else other than Val, so I’m assuming he had to be “some kind of wonderful” to her! Val cut and curled her own hair, much to everyone’s amazement! Val’s artistic abilities were her gift of strength and were so evident in all that she did, whether it was gardening, cross stitching, painting, sewing, knitting, crocheting or making crafts.  She also had a love for baking, country music, line dancing, being with their friends, where laughter and camaraderie would abound, but most of all, Val loved a good bargain!  Val was envied for her energy, determination, generosity and her power to touch hearts and minds with her personality. The Family would like to thank the staff of the Kelowna General Hospital, Salmon Arm Hospital, the Home Care Staff and Bastion Place for their ongoing support.. A special thank you to Dr. Goldberg, who went above and beyond, to make sure Val got to spend time with Larry in their new home and made her journey as smooth as possible! As per her wishes, there will be no funeral service; however, a Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the SPCA, 5850 Auto Road SE Salmon Arm, BC, V1E 2X2. Arrangements entrusted to Fischer’s Funeral Services & Crematorium Ltd. 250 8331129.

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.

He graduated from Trenton High School in 1980 and married Chericce {nee Fournier} in 1989. Kurt and Chericce welcomed daughter Hannah in 1995 and son Kamren in 1998. He was a devoted, loving husband and father. Kurt will be lovingly remembered and sadly missed for his compassion and his kindness, his great sense of humour and his gentle soul. He loved everyone and everyone loved him. Kurt was also a spirited competitor who excelled in many sports, notably in track and field where he still holds high school records. Kurt also very much enjoyed playing music, whether in a band or for his church where he was an active and dedicated member. The many friendships Kurt forged during his lifetime reflect his diverse range of interests in music, sports, spirituality and life, as well as his kindness. Kurt leaves behind a positive and loving legacy. His family received great support from his church, Living Waters Community Church, as well as Adams Lake Lumber, where he’d worked for many years. A Celebration of Life was held Saturday, July 15th, 11:00 am at Living Waters Community Church in Salmon Arm, BC.

Bud was born in Kamloops BC on April 7 1930. Most of his working life was in construction as a general contractor.

Salmon Arm Young Guns Tadpole player Wesley Spence throws the ball to Cohen Robinson while Levi Robinson-Sullivan covers the play during a game in Penticton on Sunday, July 16. The Young Guns are currently undefeated in the summer season, most recently beating Penticton 10-7 and 8-2. They previously defeated two teams from Vernon and host games this Saturday at 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. at Elks Park. In Mosquito baseball action, the Salmon Arm Hawks played four games at Valley of Champions in Kelowna over the weekend. They lost three and tied one against stiff competition, as the Salmon Arm team is a AA ranked squad, but were up against AAA teams from around the region. MVPs were Lucas Mahoney, Zach Veninsky, Ava Hawrys and Colson Johnston.

Stomp returns to Sicamous Heather Black News contributor

Sicamous is ready to Stomp its feet, and organizer Steve Hammer promises the 28th annual event will be bigger and better than ever. With SledgeHammers Apparel taking over the majority of the downtown events this year, the Summer Stomp and Burnout can focus more attention on the three-days of events taking place in the dog park. “It’s still going to be a great, grand event. And the Stomp grounds is going to be bigger than it’s ever been,” Hammer assured. “It allows us to concentrate on the Stomp grounds. The ultimate goal would be

to see Sicamous have things going on in the area for the whole week, kind of like a kickoff to summer.” Stomp organizers won’t be completely absent from the downtown, doing a kind of thank you to Sicamous on the Friday night with a few events on Main Street. That includes a bike show and shine and senior scooter races, with Mayor Terry Rysz and Coun. Jeff Mallmes kicking that off at 6 p.m. They will end their portion with a special closing act that Hammer would give nothing away, saying instead, “you’ll just have to come and see it.” Out at the fully-licensed Stomp grounds,

act,” he said. “They’re replacing the wet T-shirt contest.” A full schedule of events for the weekend, which runs Thursday, July 20 to Saturday, July 22, can be found online at www.summerstomp.ca.

Salmon Arm Observer/Shuswap Market News

It’s all about cool, clear water ShuSwap OutdOOrS Hank Shelley Water is one of the most precious commodities in the world – more so than gold or oil. In the past, each fall, fisheries officers here in the Shuswap had 42 streams and rivers they either walked, flew or jet-boated to count in order to count three species of spawning salmon. These were chinook, coho and, of course, the pink salmon, which only migrate up the South Thompson to Chase, and are the smallest species. Coho are the late arrivals, and enter spawning streams like the Eagle River in early November. Cold and snow doesn’t deter these hardy fish from scuttling over beaver dams or using side channels as far as Victor Lake, toward Revelstoke, to spawn. Backing up a bit, there is a pretty little coho stream flowing into Three Valley Lake which reminds me of a cold snowy day. I was dropped off at one kilometer up the Wap valley, then bushwhacked my way down the stream to the Highway 1 at Three Valley. Protruding from the frozen ground at an old motel site was a plastic pipe, with the best tasting water in the world. I said to the owner, “If it was me, I’d bottle this wonderful water and make a fortune.” Come spring, there was a water-bottling operation in full swing called, Monashee Spring Water. Many companies are in the water bottling and selling business in British Columbia, with most bottles’ labeling stating “pure spring water.” What really irks me the most is buying bottled water from these multi-national, or even small companies, when

it’s our own water. (However it is convenient for quick home, camping or emergency use, and reasonably priced). Nestle Canada’s Hope well pumps out and bottles 265 million litres of spring water a year and, under our province’s new Water Sustainability Act, pays only about $5.63 for the amount of water to fill an Olympic-size swimming pool, or $562 dollars for 250 million liters. Imagine that. Back in July, 2011 Tom Siddon, former federal fisheries minister, wrote a scathing letter to the Vancouver Sun regarding our most precious water, stating a recent poll said nine out of 10 B.C. folks regard clean, abundant water as the province’s most valuable resource. Also, a study found there is a lack of enforcement on lakefront development and alterations. And an auditor general’s report called the B.C. assessment office ineffective, with no mechanism to enforce environmental compliance or impose penalties on water rights abusers. As well, the province has largely neglected protection of the myriad birds, wildlife and plant communities which rely on the rich riparian areas abutting our lakes, streams, and rivers. (Armstrong’s Steele Springs aquifer water quality investigation and buck passing took more than two years.) According to Siddon, down the road, water shortages for human use will place inevitable pressure on the health of natural freshwater systems. Spring 2018 will be a difficult year for water conservation and use, as the current wildfire situation will

have burnt out many Interior watersheds, creating a situation of flash flooding and soil erosion. On a somewhat brighter note, I had a chat about water with Paul from Enderby Rentals. Seems the small sawmill they operated years back in Pemberton, at the base of Mt. Pauline, had a good population of mountain goats. There was also a wonderful cold water supply, providing great

drinking water to the crew from a large plastic pipe off the mountain. One day water stopped flowing. One of the crew climbed up to investigate. There, in the spring, was a goat that had been lying there all Spring, minus its hair!
