RCMP shooting referred to Crown counsel Barb Brouwer salmon arm observer

The 2015 shooting of a suspect by an RCMP officer has been forwarded to Crown counsel for consideration of charges. The Independent Investigations Office (IIO) of BC has concluded an officer may have committed an offence in a July 3 incident in Canoe in which suspect Shyan Davis Calllingbull

Coon sustained serious injuries. The officer has not been identified as criminal charges have not been laid. IIO spokesperson Marten Youssef says the organization does not recommend charges or prosecute but sends a report on their findings to Crown counsel if the chief civilian director identifies that an officer may have committed an offence.

“We believe a potential offence may have been committed and, as such, we have sent it to Crown,” said Youssef of the incident involving Coon. “The IIO’s referral standard is much lower than any other law enforcement agency in B.C.,” he added, noting if Crown agrees, the police officer will be going to court. Crown counsel’s policy on assessment relies on a

two-part test: “there must be a substantial likelihood of conviction based on evidence gathered by the investigating agency, and a prosecution must be required in the public interest.” The investigation stems from an incident that began on the evening of Friday, July 3, 2015 when Sicamous RCMP responded to a report of an armed robbery at a gas station in

that community. Police reported the suspect fled the scene in a blue SUV bearing Nova Scotia plates, which had been reported stolen in Saskatchewan. RCMP, with the help of a 911 call from a Canoe resident, later found the vehicle in Canoe, where the suspect had abandoned it in a residential driveway. Continued on A3

Renewed calls to stop pipeline

www.saobserver.net

Salmon Arm YOUR LOCAL PHARMACY

Vision must include protection of territory. Martha Wickett Salmon Arm Observer

As wildfire rages across B.C., Secwepemc people are calling for an immediate shutdown of the Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain Pipeline through their territory. A news release issued by the Working Group on Indigenous Food Sovereignty states the Secwepemc people fear the pipeline poses a serious safety hazard. They say the unprecedented increase in fires is evidence of global warming created, in part, by Alberta tar sands oil transported by Kinder Morgan. “We are in a critical state of emergency dealing with the impacts of climate change,” said Secwepemc teacher Dawn Morrison. Morrison, founder of the working group, says: “The health of our families and communities relies heavily on our ability to harvest wild salmon and access clean drinking

water, both of which are at risk if the Kinder Morgan pipeline was ruptured or impacted by the fires.” Spokesperson Jeffrey McNeil noted that the whole northwestern side of the Secwepemc territory is on fire, territory which includes land at Cache Creek, Williams Lake - a gathering place for the Secwepemc and Tsilhqot’in, and Clearwater. McNeil teaches aboriginal decolonizing in the faculty of Social Work at Thompson Rivers University. He notes there is a lot of “unknowing” about the history of the land and asks how non-indigenous and indigenous people can come together to protect it. We have a responsibility to think about these things, he says. With the understanding that people need to feed and clothe their families, he asks: “How do we think differently or imagine a different way forward?

How can we adopt a different economy that impacts our future generations differently? The Secwepemc’ ulecw Assembly is demanding a moratorium on any pipeline proposing to transport crude or diluted bitumen through their traditional territory where they are stewards of the forests, fields and waterways that flow from the Rockies on their way to the ocean, stated the news release. The assembly met last month to reaffirm

its territorial title and authority stating: “We have never provided and will never provide our collective free, prior and informed consent - the minimal international standard - to the Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain Pipeline Project. “We explicitly and irrevocably refuse its passage through our territory. Investors take note, there is no Secwepemc consent for Kinder Morgan. Kinder Morgan will not pass through Secwepemc Territory.”

SHUSWAP EMERGENCY PROGRAM

A helicopter drops water on the small forest fire on Angle Mountain in the North Shuswap on Friday, July 21. noting the route will make moving people and equipment easier. With no apparent relief for the tinder dry conditions and temperatures expected to be in the mid 30s C, the Shuswap Emergency Program reports that

the Anglemont Fire Department is preparing an interface fire plan, which includes the SEP structural protection units. They are also assisting BC Wildfire by conducting fire watch through the night.

Continued from A1 A perimeter was established and a police dog and handler were used to establish a track. During the search, the dog handler was allegedly confronted by the suspect and the RCMP officer discharged his sidearm. The officer was also taken to hospital for a medical assessment. Coon, 20, was held in custody and later charged with robbery, using an imitation firearm to commit an indictable offence, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, four counts of assault with a weapon, flight from a peace officer, and possession of property obtained by crime in regards to the July 3 incident.

Coon’s injuries were said to be serious, but not life threatening. The IIO is also investigating a Jan. 30 incident in which a suspect was shot by police at Salmon Arm’s Xcalibur Car Wash in the 2300 block of 10th Avenue. According to police, a man attempted to

escape and was subsequently shot. “Our investigation is well under way and ongoing,” said Youssef, noting that if the IIO determines there is insufficient evidence to forward the case to Crown, a comprehensive police report available to the public will be posted on the IIO website at www. iiobc.ca/cases.

Mother Nature has been lending a hand on the Angle Mountain Fire by remaining calm. But there was concern she could be delivering winds with gusts of up to 40 km/h in the afternoon Wednesday. Earlier in the day, Kamloops Fire Centre fire information officer Justine Hunse reported there was no containment on the wildfire, which is burning some two kilometres northwest of the community of St. Ives, but it had not grown beyond five hectares. A total of 25 firefighters, including a

21-person unit crew from Penticton were working on suppression activities, laying out hose lines to further establish water systems to take water to the fire which is burning on steep terrain. One helicopter was being used to take in gear for the firefighters. Additional air support in the form of the large blue and yellow CL215 skimmers, amphibious flying boats, and a bucketing helicopter were to be called in if needed. An access route firefighters had been building on Tuesday is complete, says Hunse,

Gallery alive with activity friends & neiGhbours Leah Blain Across the street from the Blind Bay public beach is a roadside sign that says the art gallery is open. The basement of the Blind Bay hall houses the Reedman Gallery in the summer months and the space is alive with exciting and vibrant colors. Jean Toker, who is president of the Blind Bay Hall, says the gallery is a wonderful asset to the community because it promotes local artists as well as offering one-of-a-kind gift items. “The gallery opened last year as a trial for half the summer and it was very well received by visitors and locals,” says Jean. “We have quite a few local people who have company

and every time they have guests they bring them.” This year 18 artists from the Shuswap area are taking part in the artists’ collaborative. Items range from woodwork, fibre art, and glass jewelry, to acrylics, pastels, oils, and mixed media. Prices range from a few dollars to just under $1,000. There are cards, purses, statues, clothing items, and even artistic items that are useful around the house, like tea cozies and pine needle baskets. Salmon Arm artist Jo Colley is originally from Australia and her native country still inspires some of her work. She is part of the collaborative and she looks forward to her turn to

volunteer at the gallery. “I love the interaction with different people, and not knowing too many people in the area, it’s a nice way to meet people. It’s my way of getting the know the community.” Lynda Earley, a retired English professor from Thompson River University, lives is Sorrento and is also part of the collaborative. “I like birds, flowers, landscapes – ordinary stuff.” But Lynda’s ‘ordinary’ includes scenes include Mexico (where she like to spend a lot of time) or other places around the world. She loved doing art as a child, but, like many others, she put her artistic life on hold as she raised a family and pursued a career. “When I retired I thought I would be a writer, but I decided to try my hand at vi-

sual arts. The Blind Bay painters are a very inspiring group – and here I am.” Jean, Jo, and Lynda agree that deciding to sell their art was a big and scary step. “It takes a lot of courage,” says Jean. “You’re putting yourself out there, and if you don’t sell anything you have to get over it,” says Lynda. “The first painting I ever sold – the cheque bounced. I was shattered,” says Jo, laughing about it now. It’s nice a nice feeling when their artworks sell, they say, but in a way, just having it displayed is really part of the fun. That’s what the Reedman Gallery is all about, says Jean. “It encourages artists to get involved with other artists and put their work out there. You don’t want to create it and leave it at home. This encourages artists to put their work out there for the public to see.” The Reedman Gallery is open Tuesdays to Sundays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. until Aug. 27.

New direction needed for ICBC

The hand steering the course may be new, but all indications suggest the destination is the same for auto insurance. A report released this week suggests BC’s rates could increase by as much as 30 per cent in the next two years. The new Attorney General David Eby was quick to downplay the report by Ernst & Young, saying “a 30 per cent rate increase will not be happening on our watch.” While the NDP government can certainly limit the amount of ICBC rate increases, there’s no escaping the fact there are serious problems with the province’s government-run program. The report was commissioned by the previous Liberal government, which had long neglected the overhaul needed by the Crown corporation. “ICBC has been careening toward a crisis over at least the last couple of years,” said Eby, who accused the previous government of using ICBC as a “bank machine” to help top up general revenue. Eby first call to action is something the previous Liberal government long avoided – hiking rates of drivers causing crashes. But ending the subsidy to BC’s worst drivers won’t be enough to reverse the problems caused through years of neglect. After enjoying a monopoly over the province’s auto insurance market for more than four decades, perhaps the time has come to let B.C. drivers shop around. It’s an idea the new NDP government should at least take out for a test drive.

Careless campers can raze a forest the great outdoors James Murray There’s more than 150 forest fires burning in the Province of British Columbia. Some 41,000 hectares or about 100,000 acres of forest have burned, in some areas consuming house and homes. Whole communities have been evacuated, some destroyed, and many families do not know what they will be returning to. Smoke from fires near Williams Lake, Kamloops, Cache Creek and the Lake Country has been drifting into the Shuswap for the past several weeks. Some days it has been so dense you couldn’t even the other side of the lake. Watching the coverage of the fires and the evacuation of residents on TV brings back memories of the 1998 Silver Creek fire, as well as the fires in Tappen and Chase. The ever present, pungent smell of smoke in the air, the blood red skies and the nagging worry in the back of your mind : What if the winds stir up the flames and speed the fire closer to

homes? Once you have lived through such an experience you never forget it. The vast majority of the fires currently burning in B.C. have been caused by lightening strikes, but not all. Abandoned campfires are an all too common cause of wildfires. Careless campers can threaten our forests, parks, homes and communities. Far too many of the wildfires in our province are caused by people and are all completely preventable. By law, when you light a campfire, you are responsible for both controlling and containing the fire, as well as extinguishing it when you are finished. Although there is at present a complete ban on open campfires in our province, the BC Forest Service recommends a number of common-sense practices when you are allowed to have campfires. Before heading out on a camping trip, check to find

out if there are burning or campfire restrictions in the area you are going. Prepare your site before lighting a fire. Try to use an already established fire pit whenever possible. Make sure your fire site is located a safe distance away from combustible materials such as the branches of trees, logs on the ground or nearby wooden structures. If the wind is strong enough to carry sparks, don’t burn. Keep all fires as small as possible. Never leave a fire unattended. And make sure you have an adequate water supply and the necessary tools on hand to extinguish your fire when you are finished. Stir water into the ashes until they are cold to the touch – hot coals can reignite into a fire. BC Forest Service data indicates there are, on average, 22 campfires found abandoned in the Salmon Arm area each year. Extrapolate that number provincewide and the threat of wildfire becomes very real. The Canadian Forest Fire Danger Rating System is an “indices” of the probability of fires starting as well as the rate at which fires will spread. It takes into consideration a variety of forest en-

vironmental factors such as how easily a fire could ignite, how fast it may spread, and how difficult it might be to control. During the summer months this rating is usually high or extreme. Last year there was more than 800 fires in our province. And while, statistically, the majority of these fires were caused by lightening strikes rather than by humans, the Forest Service still has to divert manpower away from naturally caused fires each time they deal with a preventable human caused fire. You can’t always control everything on a camping trip – especially the weather. However, you can maintain control of your campfire. While rain may help lessen the risk of forest fires, the amount of relief it gives is more or less dependent on the overall conditions prior to rainfall. It may seem wet outside, but one or two days of rain will not effect the overall fire danger rating. Even if you end up leaving because of the rain, don’t assume that a fire will go out by itself. Remember, it is your responsibility to make sure that a fire is completely out before you leave a campsite.

In the midst of a climate change

SHUSWAP PASSION Jim Cooperman It may be time to dismiss the notion that humans are like frogs that are unable to notice when their watery environment heats up to the boiling point, as it is difficult now to not notice the growing impacts from climate change. So far this summer we have dodged the forest-fire bullet in the Shuswap, but half the summer is left and the sunny, hot weather is slated to continue. After enduring countless slides this spring and close to flooding conditions, the weather shifted to extreme heat and drought. The first rainstorm was most welcome, but the rainfall was insufficient and the forest remains tinder dry. The second storm on Sunday came with extreme winds and many of us were without power for more than 24 hours. Given the steadily increasing temperatures due to climate change, just what does the future hold? Impacts have definitely increased over the last two decades and we can only expect more as the planet heats up. The Shuswap climate, along with the rest of the British Columbia Southern Interior, is expected to resemble Northern California and thus existing forests may indeed disappear. Al-

ready, many forests that have burned in recent years are not growing back. The impacts and number of hectares burned from the fires this year in B.C. have already surpassed the 2003 firestorm year, and we are still just halfway through the fire season. Numerous studies and reports made after the 2003 fires recommended that the province invest in mitigating wildfire risks by removing fuel sources. A plan was developed and $78-million dollars was spent – a pittance when one considers how much is spent fighting fires every year and the many millions needed to help evacuees. How many homes and businesses have to burn before the provincial government gets serious about investing the money and resources needed to better protect forest-based communities? A provincial review identified approximately 688,000 hectares at risk from wildfire and only 10 percent has received mitigation work since 2003. Ideally, strips two kilometres wide should be fireproofed around every community. Any of the logs not suitable for lumber could be used for bio-fuel that when burned emit far less

Despite the Paris agreement and increased efforts across the world to utilize carbon-free energy production, the amount of carbon in the atmosphere continues to increase. Globally, the average yearly temperature continues to increase, sea levels are rising, the ocean is becoming more acidic and, most alarming, the positive feedbacks are increasing. Methane is bubbling up from the permafrost and thawing northern lakes, further warming the planet; as more arctic ice melts, less sunlight is reflected back and the ocean warms further; and wildfires add yet more carbon to the atmosphere. As the planet warms up we can expect more flooding, landslides, intense storms and forest fires. Yet, the unexpected impacts are what could be the most problematic. Smoke from wildfires is responsible for hundreds of thousands of premature deaths world-

wide every year. Increased temperatures stress plants and could impact local agriculture. Higher temperatures also encourage diseases and facilitate insect infestations. Despite the increased number of expected impacts, the Shuswap is likely to remain more livable than other areas. While there will be more extreme weather events, we do enjoy a climate that is typically cooler and moister than other parts of the province. This region’s diverse geography does help make it more resilient and thus better able to withstand the changes predicted. One of the purposes for my book, Everything Shuswap, is to establish the “base case” for our region, so that unlike the frogs, we will be able to compare the future changes with what existed in the past.

Couple thankful to be alive Charges considered against truck driver. Jim Elliot Salmon Arm Observer

Life may never be the same for an Edmonton couple who were involved in a crash while on a motorcycle trip through the Shuswap. Cory Enns and April Pellerin Enns were on an extended motorcycle tour through Alberta, the United States and southern B.C. when they were involved in a collision with a pickup truck at the Balmoral road intersection with the Trans-Canada Highway. Speaking to the Market News from her hospital bed at Vernon Jubilee Hospital, April says she was thrown onto the hood of the pickup truck, while Cory was left on the road with the motorcycle on top of him. After being tended to by first responders and being transported by ambulance to Shuswap Lake General Hospital, Cory was airlifted to Kamloops and April was transferred to Vernon. “I have real life heroes. Some of them in the medical field and some just people doing the right thing by helping out a terrified girl and letting her hold their hand,” April said. She said a witness named Ken Bisonette held her hand and kept her conscious after the crash. “He stayed with me until the paramedics came. I will never forget his voice or his face,” she said. According to the RCMP Cory and April were travelling west on the Trans-Canada Highway when the truck pulled across the highway into their path resulting in the collision. The driver of the truck, a 75-year-old woman from Blind Bay was taken to hospital with minor injuries; the passenger in the truck was not injured. The RCMP say their investigation is ongoing

and charges against the driver of the pickup truck are being considered but have not been laid yet. In an online comment April left on an earlier Salmon Observer story, she said was told by ambulance personnel that the Balmoral intersection is often the site of accidents. She said she hopes the government will add lights to the intersection or make other improvements. April has four broken ribs and a dislocated knee; she has already undergone two surgeries. “It’s difficult to move but I’m lucky to be alive,” she said.

Columbia Shuswap Regional District Proposed CSRD Noise Bylaw No. 5754 The CSRD is considering a Noise Bylaw for the six Electoral Areas of the Regional District. The CSRD often receives complaints pertaining to loud and disruptive noises created by some landowners and tenants in residential areas. Recently the Board gave first reading to Noise Bylaw No. 5754 which provides regulations pertaining to loud and disruptive noises emanating from individuals, equipment, or vehicle use that are deemed to be objectionable and that may generally be disturbing the quiet, peace, rest, enjoyment, comfort or convenience of individuals or the public. The main intent of the proposed Noise Bylaw is to provide Bylaw Enforcement staff, and just as importantly the RCMP, with ticketing ability for the most egregious noise-related infractions. The bylaw proposes that: • any loud or disruptive sounds that may be heard by a neighbouring property or other premises in the vicinity be prohibited between the hours of 10:00 PM and 8:00 AM; • construction-related activities and excavation or fill on lands that generates noise that can be heard from a neighbouring property or other premises in the vicinity be prohibited between 10:00 PM and 7:00 AM; and, • bylaw contraventions may be enforced by a CSRD Bylaw Enforcement Officer or Peace Officer (e.g. RCMP) as appropriate and can involve fines of up to $1000 via proceedings under the CSRD Ticket Information Utilization Bylaw No. 5296, as amended.

Centre rolls out new recreation program Barb Brouwer Salmon Arm Observer

A new recreation opportunity will be rolling out in the South Shuswap. Two bocce courts have been built at the Cedar Heights Community Centre and will be formally launched at 3 p.m. Friday, Aug. 11. The bocce courts were built with financial support through a grant from the federal New Horizons for Seniors Program. The courts were primarily constructed by Cedar Heights Community Association member volunteers,

with initial site preparation completed by Lessard Excavating. “Cedar Heights Community Association bocce courts will be available for use by members of the association and the community at large at a very reasonable cost,” says Bryan Lowes, co-director of the Cedar Heights Community Association’s Outdoor Programs. “Regular men’s and ladies groups are being formed for ongoing play and a tournament is scheduled for late August.” The Aug. 11 launch ceremonies will be led

by our association president, Jean-Luc Desgroseilliers, with federal MP Mel Arnold and Columbia Shuswap Regional District Area C Director Paul Demenok in attendance. The launch ceremony will conclude with the ribbon-cutting for the courts and an initial bocce game amongst the speaking dignitaries. An invitational Italian dinner for the dignitaries, association directors and the volunteers who constructed the courts will follow. An ancient sport,

bocce ball was first documented in a 5200 B.C. painting of two boys playing on the walls of an Egyptian tomb discovered by English scientist, Sir Francis Petrial. The game spread throughout Palestine and into Asia Minor, says the World Bocce League website. In 600 B.C., bocce was picked up by the Greeks and passed to the Romans. “It was played everywhere, from the churches and castles to the city streets,” says the website. “People from all walks of life could play the game;

young or old, man or woman.” In 1319 A.D., bocce ball was actually prohibited to people of lesser nobility because it was felt that it diverted attention from more important tasks, such as archery and war training. Bocce has also become a tournament sport. Tournaments are held weekly, some carrying large cash awards for their winners. Bocce is now a part of the World Corporate Games, is an event in the Special Olympics, and is being proposed to be in the Olympics.

Return of the big bears ShuSwap OutdOORS Hank Shelley A couple of grizzly bear cubs were wandering about the dog park in Sicamous last week. It was even faster for the moccasin telegraph to take hold, and spread the word that there was a young grizzly roaming about near Owl Head trailer park and Kerr Road north of Sicamous. Seems the big bruins are moving in closer to populated areas. There are a couple reasons for this. The first is the hot, dry weather causing the berry crops to dry up. The second is a growing number of grizzlies now inhabiting the Shuswap-Okanagan area. Numbers show 16,000 bears in the province. There is a healthy population of the big bruins closer than we

think. Historically for our area, many sightings and encounters have happened in the Malakwa region, most particular about the former John Senn farm, where John had to shoot a bear that had come into the barn after a calf. We saw a mom and cubs, rolling around those big, white hay bales, while the babies scrambled in after mice. According to all reports, grizzly bear numbers are definitely on the rise, and provocations and encounters are as well. Last week, there was a young grizzly chasing after a chap on his 18-speed bike at Radium. Fortunately for the rider, a fellow in a truck cut the bear off. You’d think the guy on the bike may have had some garlic sau-

MAYOR’S REPORT

Nancy My heart goes out to all those who have been evacuated due to the wildfires. What they have gone through and are still dealing with has been extremely stressful for them. I have seen this first hand while working alongside emergency social services volunteers at the Evacuation Registration Centre. I have heard many stories from evacuees about the nightmare of leaving their homes and in the meantime not knowing what they might find, when they are allowed to return. An additional worry is how they will survive while they are evacuated. Some have told of how they had been evacuated not once but twice and for one couple three times. Others talked about

Beach, organized by Justin Eveline. There were offers of help and donations from all over town. In speaking to the many evacuees, I want you all to know how much all of this has meant to them – it has made a big difference for them while they are going through this difficult time. So, thank you Salmon Arm. Thank you for being so you – always caring, and always ready with a helping hand.

PISCES

Now is the time to wrap up a few loose ends, Pisces. You know what areas of life need a little touching up. Get started as soon as you can.

ARIES You may need to dim your lights so you do not outshine others, Aries. You can be a force and it pays to let others share a bit of the spotlight. This will garner some goodwill.

TAURUS

Taurus, settle into your comfort zone at home and take on all of the domestic tasks that have fallen by the wayside. You are very happy in your personal haven, Taurus.

Young grizzlies relocated Lachlan Labere Salmon Arm Observer

Three grizzly cubs are back in their element and away from residential areas in Sicamous. Tobe Sprado, BC Conservation Officer Service inspector for the North Okanagan, said the three two-yearold bears, all females, were captured between July 16 and July 20. They were tranquilized, ear tagged and relocated to an area between Shuswap Lake and Revelstoke, at the far end of their home range in the Monashee Mountains. “They were hanging around for the last month, essentially, and we felt it was better to remove them from that area and give them an

It is like a get out of jail free card for the community of Sicamous.” Owens adds bears that become food conditioned and habituated to humans are often destroyed out of concern for human safety. Fruit trees are one such attractant, and Sprado said it is best to either cut them down if they aren’t being used, or to set up electric fencing.

INFORMATION DESIGNED TO PROMOTE AND ENHANCE YOUR WELLBEING

Keep asthma under control this summer (NC) It’s that time of year that everyone anticipates — weekend getaways to the cottage, playing outdoors all day long and fun family trips. But if your child suffers from asthma, keeping it under control during the summer months is necessary to ensure they have a safe and active break from school. Planning ahead and taking precautions helps to reduce their risks. Beware of summer asthma triggers such as pets, food allergens, campfire smoke, air pollution, mould

in the forest, and dust and mould in the cottage. Remember that air quality in a cottage or cabin at summer camp may not be as easy to monitor as it can be at home. Here are some tips from The Lung Association to help your child take control of their breathing: • Air out the cottage before you spend time inside. • Take medications as prescribed. • Develop a written action plan with your healthcare provider. • Keep a fast-acting

reliever inhaler (usually a blue one) handy and pack an extra just in case. • Check the air quality health index forecast. • Before you travel, find the nearest emergency medical service at your destination. Asthma doesn’t take a holiday, so managing it while away is just as important as it is when at home. If you are sending your child to camp, share their action plan with the staff. Camp staff should have key information, including which med-

ication is taken daily and which is for emergencies, which triggers can cause their asthma symptoms, which signs and symptoms may indicate that they are having an asthma attack, and who are their emergency contacts. If you have any questions, call The Lung Association Lung Health Information Line at 1-888-344LUNG, where you can speak to a certified respiratory educator. www.newscanada.com

Picnic hacks to make the most of the season (NC) The sun’s shining, so what better time to pack a picnic basket and hit the road and indulge in some delicious food in the park or at the beach? Enjoy the outdoor dining experience with these inspiring picnic hacks. Tried and true classic. When planning your menu, don’t overthink it — the sandwich is a crowd favourite thanks to its easy assembly and simple ingredients. For a fun twist, pack sandwich kebabs instead. Use a cookie cutter to create fun shapes with buns and ingredients, then hold it all together

with a skewer. Pack for on-the-go. Rather than bring entire condiment bottles, try using a muffin tray. Pack all your fixings in the tray and keep it upright and covered with cling wrap. For another cute trick, use small mint boxes to hold herbs and spices. Just don’t forget to label everything to avoid mix-ups. Bring double-duty household items. The simplest things can become very versatile when used in new ways. Always keep muffin cups close by — they can be used to catch popsicle and ice cream drips, as lids

for your drinks to keep bugs out, or as small bowls to hold fruit. Egg crates are also handy and can be used to transport delicate foods, like plums. Think all-in-one dining. Eliminate the need for extra packaging and stuff your finger food snacks and their dips in the same jar.

Create double containers with mason jars and fruit cups to pack buns and flatbreads for dipping. Add crunch by grilling D’Italiano herb and garlic buns with a drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkle of sea salt. Put freshness first. The summer season is peak time for local

Evacuations force couple to move wedding to Salmon Arm Flavio Nienow Black Press

For Burns Lake residents Jesse Bird and Katy Burkholder, a wildfire evacuation was not a good enough reason to postpone their wedding. After two years of planning, their wedding was set to take place last Saturday in 108 Mile Ranch. But plans had to change after the town was evacuated on July 7 due to the Gustafsen fire. Instead of postponing their wedding, however, the couple was determined to find a new location. “We had some family in Clearwater and we thought we could get married there, but then I heard they were also evacuating,” said Bird. “Katy’s friend knew of a place in the Salmon Arm area that her mom had got married the year before, so they started looking into it and it was available, so we started shifting

things there.” “Katy, her family and friends spent their days on the phone to transfer the event.” Being a firefighter with the B.C. Wildfire Service, Bird was busy being deployed to a Kelowna flood camp while this was happening. “We pulled in a lot of resources from our family and friends and they all really gave us a big hand (to transfer the wedding),” he said. The approximately 60 guests include Bird’s family from Calgary and Burkholder’s family from the Lower Mainland. Bird said there’s bit of irony in the fact that he’s a firefighter who’s had to change the location of his own wedding due to a wildfire. “Some people might look on the dark side of that, but I just think that if we can make through all these trials and tribulations, then I see us having a long-lasting, happy

Their honeymoon had to be cut short as Bird was expected to return to work on July 25 to help with the provincial wildfire situation. “We’ll have to wait until the winter for our honeymoon,” he said.

Men, women, children, people of every race, religion and sexual identity – these are the people who make up families, and everyone of them is invited to Pride Does Not Divide Family Picnic on Saturday. Local DJ Patrick Ryley discovered some Grade 12 students and members of the Gender Sexuality Alliance wanted to have a local pride celebration. Kindale, Canadian Mental Health Association and the Shuswap Children’s Association are among the groups that will attend the picnic. Not only did city council approve Ryley’s request, several businesses who have hopped on board with their support. “It’s very interesting

GLACIER BUILDING SUPPLIES LTD

We couldnt have done it without you! R.J. Haney Heritage Village & Museum needs YOU to help complete the new Montebello Museum, the City of Salmon Arm Cornerstone Canada 150 Project. Be a part of the legacy! The Museum’s Fund Development Committee is pleased to announce that we have recently received word that Heritage Canada will be coming to the table with $245,000 on a matching basis as well as BC Arts Council kicking in $23,500, again, on a matching basis. The timing could not have been better to allow for the planning to complete the legacy. With these commitments we now have raised just over $1.4 Million of the $1.75 Million project, but we need your help to GET IT DONE.

From Big Brother to Roots & Blues The 2017 Salmon Arm Roots and Blues Festival 25th Anniversary edition is only a month away. It has been known to attract celebrities in the past and this year is no exception, says festival executive director David Gonella. Some of the most infamous house guests from last season’s Big Brother Canada will stop in at the festival on their summer road trip. “We all have our guilty television pleasures. I’d be lying if I said Big Brother Canada was not on the PVRs of some of our staff and volunteers and I know some of our patrons will be a little star-struck when they realize they are dancing, side-stage next to Canada’s latest BBCan house guests,” admits Gonella. Karen Singbeil, mom of three and now a Victoria resident, made it all the way until the final vote.

Known for her ability to adapt, keep people laughing, and beat the odds, she is sure to bring some added fun to festival next month. “I love knowing that Karen is already familiar with the area and can advocate for its beauty,” says Gonella of the former Sicamous realtor. “We always love when Mom packs up the family and ventures to our neck of the woods; we can’t wait to see Karen and her crew.” Singbeil will not be the only house guest at the festival this year – but in true BBCan fashion patrons will have to expect the unexpected when arriving at Roots & Blues on Aug. 17 and keep their eyes open for more of these Canadian stars. “Maybe Roots and Blues will have a ‘showmance’ or two of its own this year,” laughs Gonella. He says tickets are going fast, families are

getting ready for their road trips to Salmon Arm, musicians are tuning their instruments and warming up their voices, and organizers have been busy finalizing the official schedule. This year the Roots and Blues program is included in the July/ August issue of BC Musician Magazine. The magazine is on store shelves now so be sure to grab your copy so you can start planning your weekend of epic musical magic with a variety of daily acts on several stages. Festivalgoers can also purchase official stage schedules on site for $5. Those who have opted to order their schedules along with their tickets online can pick them up now or upon arrival at the festival on Aug. 17. Haven’t got your tickets yet? They are available for purchase online at www.rootsandblues.ca, a source for complete festival

For those who just can’t wait for Roots & Blues, there will be something with a very similar feel for one night only at the Falkland Hall on Saturday, July 29. Ben Rogers and his full band The Bloodred Yonder is making a stop on his tour of B.C. and Alberta, where he is raising funds for BC Battered Womens Shelter services with every performance and merchandise sales. Rogers is an original Canadian songwriter armed with a voice like smoked gravel and warm stories to connect to. He is backed by an all-star lineup of Canadian musicians, including Matthew Kelly of City & Colour on pedal steel and tenor guitar. Joining them will be Edmonton-based rockabilly blues and swing act Sam Spades. They are a killer full band banging out low-toned, thick rockin’ riffs to get everyone moving and shaking.

Vancouver’s Parlour Panther will open the concert with soaring harmonies over keys, soul and mellow pop.

Admission is $15 at the door for adults, $10 for students, under 13 years old by donation and $25 for a family

Breathe through a straw for 60 seconds. That’s what breathing is like with cystic fibrosis.

Playground paves partnership Tim Bell never imagined he’d be signing partnership agreements because of a playground, nor that the agreements would be with one of the largest lumber companies in the world and a small First Nation community in the Shuswap. “I’ve learned in my career to always expect the unexpected,” said Bell, Arrow’s vice-president of trucking operations. “But this is probably the first time I’ve gone into a four-way partnership to deliver on a project without any agreement in place.” The new leadership in the Little Shuswap Lake Indian Band had been working to reopen relationships with industry partners, specifically to help the band realize the benefits of its provincial forest licence. “We were looking for companies whose approach to partnerships extends beyond what we see in typical resource-development agreements,” said band economic-development advisor Leonard Jackson of his BCT Projects company. “We asked several forestry companies to pitch concepts for working together.” Enter Brad Bennett, Interfor’s woodlands manager. Within a couple of conversations, Bennett and Jackson brought Bell into the discussion. “Interfor had been attempting to engage with the Little Shuswap Lake Indian Band for a long time with little success, but we knew the current chief and council were looking for companies with

Children of the Little Shuswap Lake Indian band enjoy their new playground, which opened on June 14 as the result of a partnership between Interfor, Arrow Transportation and the Little Shuswap Lake Indian Band. whom to partner on their forestry project,” Bennett said. “Having worked with Arrow on other projects, and knowing the company’s commitment to Aboriginal engagement, we knew we wanted Arrow in the room with us from the start.” When Interfor, Arrow and the band sat down for the first time, the goal was getting to know one another. Specific business was off the table and, instead, initial discussions focused on whether the people in the room felt there was a cultural fit. Little Shuswap Lake Coun. Dale Tomma recalls talking to Bell, Bennett and Jackson about the importance the band’s leadership places on progressive development. “As leaders, one of our jobs is to get out into other communities to look at what they are doing to spur economic

development,” Tomma said. “I happened to mention a place I’d visited where the mill had recently built a recreation facility. This, in a small community where people were already benefiting from the mill economically through employment. What I saw there was how the community now came together socially in the beautiful space the company had created.” Bell said they had been discussing the importance of companies recognizing lasting relationships are not just built on revenue sharing. “We knew Dale wasn’t telling us that story because she wanted us to build a playground, even though we know there isn’t one in the community and we know that kids bike down a busy, dangerous highway to Chase to play,” Bell said. Bell, Bennett and

Jackson walked out of the meeting and knew they were building a playground anyway, a playground that opened on June 14. “We’ve partnered with several First Nations communities on different projects, all unique and all mutually beneficial,” Bell said. “What makes this one special is that we all went into those initial discussions without a defined project or business goal in mind. And, while the immediate outcome is this playground — which isn’t even a part of the formal partnership agreements we’re working on — it’s representative of how we want to work together on what we hope will become long-term business relationships.” The details of the resource-development partnerships are still being finalized. The parties are working towards revenue and

employment agreements that will see the band sell timber volumes to Interfor. Arrow and Interfor will have an agreement to haul timber, not only from band land to the Adams Lake Mill, but also on other forestry projects. And they’ll do this in logging trucks they put on the road with the band through a joint-venture partnership. -Kamloops This Week

Fundraiser fueled by personal experience Chase-area youth selling lemonade to help out the BC Children’s Hospital. Lachlan Labere Salmon Arm Observer

Patrisha Narcisse will be turning lemons into lemonade for BC Children’s Hospital. The nine-year old Narcisse will be in Chase on Friday, July 28, with the hope of meeting folks with strong thirsts and charitable hearts. Her lemonade stand will be set up on Shuswap Avenue, in the little park across from Craig’s Bakery. All funds collected will be donated directly to BC Children’s Hospital. “A lot of children are sick and I want to help,” said Narcisse, who has been a patient

with BC Children’s Hospital since the age of five, when it was discovered she’d been born without a spleen. Martin Tomma, Patrisha’s father, said her condition wasn’t known until she’d become seriously ill, and was transported to hospital in Kamloops and then to Children’s Hospital. There she was put into an induced coma. “It was for about a period of two weeks and it was then they found she had no spleen,” said Tomma. The spleen filters blood as part of a person’s immune system, as well as fights types of bacteria that cause

pneumonia and meningitis. Patrisha is now on medication for life, and visits Children’s Hospital at least once a year for health checks as well as dental work. Patrisha is a student at Chief Atahm school. She enjoys keeping fit and doing her homework, her favourite subject being algebra. At home, she likes to help Tomma out with chores such as mowing the lawn, and taking time to play with her cat Keyti. “I can do a lot of things – I just have to go to Children’s Hospital to make sure I’m OK,” said Patrisha. In addition to the lemon-

ade stand, an account is being set up under Patrisha’s name at the Chase branch of the Royal Bank, where people can make donations for Children’s Hospital. “It won’t be just a one day thing,” said Tomma. The Village of Chase is supportive of Patrisha’s effort and have given its approval for the lemonade stand. “Children’s Hospital is a great cause and I don’t think there’s anyone that doesn’t support Children’s Hospital…,” said Chase corporate officer Sean O’Flaherty. “Our community supports so many great causes and this is no different.”

I N P CHATTER at Village Lanes Fun Centre by Calyn Buresh

Tuesday, August 1st, 2017

Hi Folks! Hope you are all having a fantastic Summer despite the smoky skies that have been blocking our sunshine. We have missed all our amazing customers over the course of the Summer so far, but are enjoying our break. Kelly and I finally made it official last weekend, and got married! So now that all the planning there has subsided we are able to get back to focusing on the business end of things a little bit! We wanted to let you all know that our little team from Chase, BC did a fantastic job at the National Championships in Winnipeg, Manitoba a couple of weekends ago! Team BC made up of Norm and Flo Flynn, Dennis and Diane Youchezin, and Harold Wells ended up placing 7th in the province (which for a group of mainly first year bowlers, is impressive!) Although this amazing group of people didn’t come home with a medal, from what I heard, they had more fun that anyone. Representatives of Bowl Canada emailed us to let us know what an excellent group of people we had representing our centre. Congratulations on your first ever National experience. We are so proud of all of you! Don’t forget, that just because we are closed for another couple of weeks doesn’t mean that we aren’t available to come in! If you are looking to book a large group reservation, family reunions, or fundraisers, we are ALWAYS happy to assist! We are checking our phone messages and emails daily. We will be reopening mid to the end of August and are so excited to get geared up for the 2017-2018 league season! For all of your fall league inquiries, don’t hesitate to email bowl@villagelanes.ca

In Loving memory

July 20th 1925 - July 9th 2016

We miss you and your beautiful smile Love from family and friends

GLADYS HELEN DUNCAN (EVANS) 1937 - 2017 Gladys Duncan, age 80 passed away peacefully July 20th at her home in Sunnybrae surrounded by her loved ones after her courageous battle with cancer. Born February 7th 1937 in Spiritwood, Saskatchewan. Her journeys took her to many locations, she settled in Prince George where she met her beloved lifetime partner George Duncan. A devoted caring mother to her three children; Beverley Huppie, Bradley Duncan (Sylvia) and Gregory Duncan (Gladys) who welcomed his mother with open arms in heaven. Grandchildren; Jessi (Chris), Jonna (Fergus), Christina, George, Natasha and Chelsea (Dan). Great Grandchildren; Christian, Dylan, Destiny, Gracie and Jaxson. Survived by brothers and sisters; Delbert Evans, Ron Evans, Rose Magnusson and Lillian Massicotte. Predeceased by brothers and sisters; Leslie Evans, Norman Evans, Jean Sigerest and Murriel Dorchester. Her many nieces, nephews, family and friends. In 1973 George and Gladys made their final destination in Salmon Arm, B.C. Gladys worked serving in several local restaurants throughout her years, she was known for her hard work ethic and charming personality. She spent her retirement years in Sunnybrae with George working many hours in the beautiful yard and flower gardens surrounding their home on Shuswap Lake. Gladys loved quadding, hunting, ski-dooing, mushroom picking, horseback riding, Gymkhana and of course fishing especially for salmon on the Skeena and trout in Greeny Lake. One of Gladys’ biggest loves in life was music and dancing, her feet were never still. Her passion took her to actively participate and volunteer for the community. She performed and taught line dancing, took part in several 100 Guitar celebrations, even dressing up for the part. Gladys will always be remembered for the generous warmth in her heart that brought laughter and love to everyone she knew and met. She will be dearly missed by all her friends, family and loved ones. Thank you to Dr. Laura Hepburn, Dr. Main, Nurse Janine, Community Care support and Hospice for their compassionate care of our beloved Gladys. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Canadian Cancer Society, PO Box 3451, Salmon Arm, BC, V1E 4S2. A Celebration of life for Gladys will be held at the Sunnybrae Community Hall on July 29th at 1pm. Share condolences and memories online through Gladys’ obituary at www. fischersfuneralservices.com.

DANIELS, ALFRED DAVID 28 November 1925 – 27 December 2016 It is with sadness that the community of Seymour Arm bids farewell to Alf DANIELS the last member of a generation that was of one of the original homesteading families at the north end of Shuswap Lake. Alf spent most of his life in Seymour Arm working at everything from trapping, logging, guiding, running a sawmill, building forest roads, cattle ranching and working for Fisheries and Parks. His final endeavor saw him become a small business owner dispensing gas, groceries and sound advice from Daniels’ Store and Marina, a floating store that operated all year round despite a small customer base and the long, bone-chilling winters. The ‘store’ was a place that folks could gather for a small purchase and a long conversation on anything. The community of Seymour Arm was a very important part of Alf’s life and while he usually chose to avoid the limelight he did find ways to support the community through other means. The community hall and ‘upper’ ball field were built on land donated by the Daniel’s family and the gravity-fed community water system was originally conceived and then built in partnership with the Daniels’ brothers, Ernie and Alf. Thanks to a local organization called AWE (Aging With Ease), Alf was able to remain in Seymour Arm up to his last days. He even kept one of the best fruit and vegetable gardens going up to the end… until a mother bear and two cubs helped themselves to all the carrots and parsnips. Gardening was always an adventure and a challenge for Alf in the Arm. Alf was pre-deceased by his ‘tough-as-nails’ parents Vern & Nellie, his brothers Ernest, Arnold and Albert (Abbie), his sisters Violet (Hamilton) and Shirley (Quast), and his nephew Randal Quast. He is survived by his nephews Arnold and Jack Hamilton, Rick and Leroy Daniels, and his favourite (and only) niece Shari Bachynski (Quast), as well by as a host of great nephews and nieces. Thanks go out to all the community members who made Alf’s life comfortable and meaningful at the end, in particular Sue Kyle and Lorraine Thompson, to the AWE association for setting up a support system, to Dr. Welder who kept him going into ripe old age, to Lillian and Gary who supplied much-needed and appreciated in-home care in the last few months, to the medi-vac and ambulance crews who braved the weather and roads to ferry Alf out a few times, the Kamloops hospital staff who made his last few days peaceful, and to all the friends, relatives and neighbours who were so supportive along the way. Alf will always be remembered as being a ‘foundational’ member of the community of Seymour Arm and his memory will be cherished by those whom he touched with his humour and his kindness. A memorial in Alf’s honour will be held at the Seymour Arm community hall on Wednesday 09 August 2017, starting at 2pm. All welcome.

BETTY DAWN MIEGE July 25, 1931 - July 20, 2017 We mourn the loss of our mother, g r a n d m o t h e r, sister, aunt, and dear friend, but also we celebrate a life well lived. Betty was born in Waitara, Taranaki, New Zealand, on July 25, 1931. Her parents, Cyril and Dulcie Tate, must have instilled a taste for sport and adventure. In her younger years she enjoyed field hockey, tennis, and cycling. At 19 she began her nursing training at New Plymouth Public Hospital, graduating in 1953. During Betty’s nursing training, she climbed to the summit of Mount Taranaki twice and enlisted in the New Zealand Army Medical Corp during the summer months. Betty was Head Nurse at the Men’s Surgical Ward when, in 1958, she conspired with her lifelong friend Val Dirks to embark on one of her great adventures. They quit their nursing jobs in New Zealand and boarded a ship to seek new fortunes in the wilds of British Columbia finding nursing jobs at Miller Bay Indigenous Hospital in Prince Rupert, and later at the Langley Memorial Hospital. The pair would have many adventurous road trips including trips to California and Mexico. While working in Langley, Betty was invited to visit friends in the Shuswap. During this visit, she met the love of her life, Edmond Miege, and started her next big adventure as Eddy’s wife, soulmate and partner on Bastion Ranch. The life of a farmer suited Betty well, but she maintained her adventurous and sporting lifestyle, as well as continuing her career as a nurse at the Shuswap General Hospital. Betty and Eddy had two children, Caroline and David, but also opened their home and generous hearts to many young people and families that stayed on the farm. The family enjoyed traveling to Europe and New Zealand, yet loved being on the farm and enjoying what the Shuswap had to offer. Betty forged lifelong friendships with many people including the Fleur de Lys, Sims, Mitchells, Dirks, and Noakes families. All of these families will long remember her home baked bread and full garden. Betty enjoyed cross country skiing round the trails on the farm as well as being a Jack-Rabbits leader up at Larch Hills. She was also a member of the Shuswap Lady Striders walking and hiking group with her sister Jos Penner. With her friend Joyce Christmas she competed a number of times in the Salmon Arm Team Triathlon as a canoeist. Later, she became involved with dragon boating on the Shuswap, creating a new crew of friends. Along the way, her family expanded with 8 grandchildren, Mico, Alexandra, Aidan, Waylan, Marlee, Benjamin, Connor, and wee Heidi. She was also enormously proud of her family and enjoyed talking about the exploits of her brother Bob, and sisters Jos and Karen, and her many cousins, nieces and nephews in New Zealand, Canada, and Switzerland. Betty passed away peacefully early in the morning of July 20th, 5 days shy of her 86th birthday. In her final days, Betty was never alone, and at the end was held close by her son David and his wife Kathleen. The family wish to extend their thanks to the wonderful staff at Piccadilly Care Centre, and thank Dr. Skubiak for his kindness and compassion. We wish to invite all of Betty’s friends and family to a celebration of life at Bastion Ranch (6494 Sunnybrae Road) on Sunday September 3 at 11:00 am. Online condolences may be sent to Betty’s family through her obituary at www. bowersfuneralservice.com.
