Extreme hazard in the backcountry Officials urge citizens to use caution in the hot, dry conditions. Barb Brouwer salmon arm observer

If you go out in the woods today, be careful and keep your eyes open. It’s going to be a long, hot weekend and with the already high to extreme wildfire risk, Wildfire BC officials and local backcountry user groups are asking everyone to be extra vigilant in the backcountry, at home and on the roads. Kamloops Fire Centre Fire Information Officer Max Birkner says that while officials have considered

closing the backcountry, there are benefits to having eyes in the forest. But he says with grasslands and brush so dry, ATVs should stay on the trails and not be parked in grass or brush when hot. Those driving campers, RVs or other vehicles with chains need to make sure they’re not dragging on the road, and at home, people should be equally cautious when using grinders, welding or even mowing the lawn. “Avoid any activity that

generates heat and could cause sparks,” he says. Outdoor enthusiasts also need to remember that campfires are strictly prohibited at this time and will result in stiff fines for those who do not comply. Propane fire rings are permitted as long as they are CSA-approved and the flame does not go higher than 15 centimetres. Smoke blanketing the region earlier in the week was emanating from Washington State and the Elephant Hill fire which caused the

evacuation of Clinton. It was expected to clear by the weekend, allowing for even higher temperatures. Discovered on July 20, the Angle Mountain wildfire above St. Ives continues to be held to eight hectares. As of 10 a.m. Wednesday, 28 firefighters were working on the ground with air support available if needed. “The very key point here is the steep terrain, which is making fighting the fire very difficult,” said Birkner. “This type of fire can take a very long time to contain

because of the steep terrain.” Also suspected to be lightning-caused, the Mt. Chase fire remains at eight hectares and is under control, says Birkner, noting patrols will keep an eye on the fire, which is remote and not threatening any structures. “They really hit it hard at the beginning and due to the early action, they got it under control very quickly,” he said, pointing out with the number of aircraft flying around the area, there Continued on A2

Power line sparks fire at mill Barb Brouwer Salmon Arm Observer

An early morning fire had Hall 1 and 2 firefighters scrambling. Salmon Arm Fire Chief Brad Shirley says they received a

call of power lines down at the plywood mill at Canoe Forest Products. Held up briefly by a train, firefighters arrived to find a small crane on fire and a power pole arcing and sparking.

“We immediately upgraded the fire as there was sawdust on the ground,” says Shirley. “It was a quick response but we couldn’t start suppressing the fire until the power was shut down.”

Shirley says firefighters wet the area around the pole and crane to prevent the fire from spreading and waited approximately 30 minutes for the lines to be de-energized. Fire crews were on

250.832.2131

scene for two-and-ahalf hours. “The fire is under investigation but possibly a piece of machinery hit the pole and caused the wire to come down,” Shirley says.

Public should stay away from firefighting efforts Continued from A1 will be many eyes on the fire. “Smoke might flare up a bit in the afternoon, as it always does.” The Shuswap Trail Alliance warns that all trails in the Shuswap are within the extreme fire rating area, and asks that backcountry users obey all trail closures. Meanwhile, Salmon Arm ATV Club president Allen Walker says he is staying out of the backcountry for the time being. “I just know that officially, the bush is not shut down, but they are discouraging people

from going out…,” said Walker. “I personally haven’t been out. I just couldn’t live with myself if something bad happened.” And steer clear of areas where firefighters are working. In a July 29 Facebook post, the BC Wildfire Service noted there had been multiple incidents in just two days of firefighting having to be halted because of interference from the public involving offroad vehicles entering an active fire area or forcing helicopters to stop dropping water on the fire. In the Shuswap, inter-

ference relates to boaters getting in the way of skimmers and helicopters who are taking on water to fight fires in steep terrain. “The Shuswap is busy in summer and the lake is big,” said fire information officer Rachel Witt. “We do understand that everyone has a cellphone and wants to get photos and videos, but make sure you move out of the way and let the pilots do their job. If there is any threat to safety of crews or aircraft, we can’t work.” According to the Facebook post, RCMP and conservation offi-

cers will be increasing their patrols in areas where interference with firefighting operations is occurring. On the good news front, with many evacuees returning to Williams Lake, Columbia Shuswap Regional District’s Shuswap Emergency Program has closed the emergency social services reception centre. The reception centre opened on Sunday, July 16 and served 843 evacuees. If the need arises, the centre can be ramped up again quickly. If anyone spots smoke or people disregarding the campfire

MP takes up invasive mussel cause

Local MP Mel Arnold wants to stop invasive mussels from reaching the shores of Okanagan and Shuswap area lakes.

Mel Arnold MP

The OBWB has been active in sounding alarms about the need to keep the mussels out of the Okanagan, and has been met with some frustration in securing funding commitments from Ottawa. Arnold didn’t make them feel any better in relating that of the $60.9 million in the 2014-15 federal budget to deal with invasive species, 80 per cent of that was spent on projects in the Great Lakes to deal with two species. That left 20 per cent

for the rest of Canada. It is estimated the mitigation costs in B.C. should the mussels take hold here would start at $200 million and escalate from there with no permanent solution at this point. The MP also acknowledged that support for Shuswap area lake initiatives were assisted by the relevance to salmon, a federal fisheries priority, while that responsibility for other fish species tends to be downloaded on the provinces. Arnold said the fact the mussels have already infested eastern Canada waterways to Manitoba may also be downplaying the need for resources further west. “Yes, that is possible. It may well be that mussels showing up in our lakes here is inevitable, but in that case we need to have a treatment plan in place to immediately take action if and when that

North Okanagan-Shuswap MP Mel Arnold has been an active proponent of aquatic and invasive species initiatives in his constituency’s lakes over the past decade. While those initiatives have proven successful for reviving rainbow trout populations and salmon spawning habitat, Arnold has now turned his sights on better prevention strategies to stop zebra and quagga mussels from infiltrating the Okanagan and Shuswap lake systems. To Arnold, the Conservative Party deputy critic of Fisheries and Oceans Canada, it is a simple matter of economics—investing money now in public education and public boat inspection strategies or face horrendous mitigation costs to deal with a mussel infestation that has no solution. The MP appeared Tuesday before the Okanagan Basin Water Board to pledge his support to draw more attention and financial resources towards education, boat inspection and infestation response strategies. “The best way going forward is to work collaboratively with all levels of government to raise the importance of this issue, and to direct the necessary resources towards it in a proactive rather than reactive way,” Arnold said. To that end, Arnold is hosting a roundtable discussion in Vernon next week with invited stakeholders to discuss what can be done moving forward.

happens,” Arnold said. He cited the example of Lake Winnipeg in Manitoba, where it took six months for a response initiative to be launched after the mussels were detected. They added which potash to the lake. It didn’t get the desired results and the mussel contamination has taken hold.

ICBC in need of an overhaul It’s been a while since ICBC had any major shakeups. Now one is vitally necessary. The NDP government has been in office just weeks and is finding all the problems the Liberals swept under the rug. Chief among them is the mess at ICBC. A report, prepared six months ago but not released until well after the election, shows the agency will be far into the red unless rates jump by approximately 30 per cent over the next two years, or its practices change drastically. Perhaps things wouldn’t be as bad if the Liberals hadn’t used ICBC as their piggy bank for years. They took more than $1.2 billion since 2010 (public money that no doubt played a part in those five consecutive balanced budgets the BC Liberals campaigned on). Now David Eby, who is overseeing ICBC, is promising to address the problems without sending rates sky high. Simply ending the hand in the till practices will help. Beyond that, ICBC does need reform. Crash rates are rising, new cars are more expensive (and more expensive to fix) and there’s some evidence that B.C. is overpaying compared to other provinces for some injuries. Eby seems likely to aim at some low-hanging fruit first, though. Dangerous and bad drivers are likely to see their rates go up, and soon. We’d also like to suggest some steep hikes in particular for people who combine extremely expensive cars with bad habits on the road. If they can afford to be careless with other people’s lives, they can afford to see their insurance hiked dramatically. –Black Press

Warming waters bad for salmon the great outdoors James Murray Peering down into the surprisingly clear waters of Mable Lake, it was hard to know for sure just how deep the water was below the boat. I knew I had to be in at least 15 to 20 feet of water. What was unmistakable, however, was the number of fish holding just off the bottom on both sides of the drop-off. I was eager to get my line in the water but several hours of casting brought not one single bite. I could see them but I couldn’t catch them. As temperatures continue to rise and water levels drop in many of B.C.’s lakes, rivers and streams, fish stocks throughout the province are coming under ever-increasing pressure. With continued warm weather, oxygen levels in many lakes are becoming depleted and fish are starting to hold in the cooler waters near the bottom. They are no longer moving in constant search for food, but rather simply staying relatively motionless, feeding only when opportunity arises, using up as few calories as possible.

As I sat in my boat, I began to wonder about the prospects this fall for Mable Lake’s salmon. Research conducted by the United States National Wildlife Federation (Fish Out of Water: A Guide to Global Warming and Pacific Northwest Rivers) shows that a three degree rise in average August temperatures would cause up to 20 percent of the streams in the Columbia River Basin and coastal watersheds of Washington and Oregon to become too warm for most salmon, steelhead and trout. It only follows that rivers and streams in British Columbia would be similarly affected. A recent Fisheries and Oceans Canada report indicates water temperatures in the northeast Pacific region are approximately 3 C above normal. “Record warm ocean temperatures combined with low, unusually warm rivers pose a double threat to B.C. salmon, prompting the DFO and government officials to curtail some fisheries. The re-

duced fisheries are part of a cautious approach to ensure a healthy number of salmon return to river spawning grounds.” The report goes on to say warm water temperatures are also having an effect on some of the food sources that salmon normally eat. As a result, the younger salmon that will swim to sea after this warm spell may not survive, or might return thinner and weaker. The DFO is also expecting there to be fewer numbers coming back in the next one to three years. Scott Hinch, a professor of fisheries conservation at the Pacific Salmon Ecology and Conservation Laboratory at UBC, says he expects temperatures will continue to rise over the course of the summer. “The Fraser River, for example, could peak at 19 or 20 degrees, and that, plus low flows, could impact whether spawners could get to spawning grounds. By the time you get to 20 degrees, many fish are suffering mortality because they’re suffering from low energy reserves. They have to work a lot harder when temperatures are higher and they have a finite amount of energy they’re bringing with them.”

Low rainfall in the past few months, coupled with sustained warm temperatures, is certainly cause for concern. Water levels in the Fraser River systems are already lower than normal – more typical of levels normally seen in the latter part of August – and it is raising concerns about the health of the salmon runs. Previous DFO research has shown the swimming ability of migrating salmon starts to decline when water temperature hits 18 C. In previous, similarly hot summers, 40 to 90 per cent of Fraser River salmon have died before they were able to spawn. Low water levels combined with warm dry weather has resulted in drought-like conditions in several regions of the province, especially in central and southern B.C. One can only wonder what is in store for everyone in the province over the next month or so. Forest fires are raging out of control, and people’s lives and livelihoods are being affected by both the fires and the continued hot weather. So is the future of the fish in many of our lakes, rivers and streams. Salmon stocks, it would seem are in peril. What we need is rain and lots of it. Please let it rain.

Creation of Pakistan a big mistake? GLOBAL VIEWS Gwynne Dyer It was never my plan to tell Pakistanis their country had been a mistake. I was nineteen years old at the time, in Pakistan for the summer with 40 other young Canadian university students on a trip to foster international understanding. I had already realised that this was a completely pointless exercise, but it was a free trip and I had never been out of North America before. I also already knew that sticking up handbills in Lahore announcing a public debate in which the visitors would argue that the creation of Pakistan had been a bad idea would be a very bad idea, but nobody asked my opinion. So there were renta-crowd riots in Lahore, and the military dictator of the time had us all arrested and shipped up to a boys’ school in Abbotabad, empty for the summer, until they could find enough seats on Pakistan International Airlines to expel us all. (The same town was also, much later, the last refuge of Osama bin Laden, but I digress.) Anyway, this month marks the 70th anniversary of the partition of India and the independence of Pakistan, so maybe it’s time to revisit that aborted debate. Especially since the 18th prime minis-

ter of Pakistan, Nawaz Sharif, has just been forced out of power by Pakistan’s supreme court. In all those 70 years, not one of Pakistan’s prime ministers has ever managed to complete one full term in office. Pakistan is not exactly a “failed state”. It provides a very comfortable life for around five million privileged people, including the immensely rich Sharif family. (Nawaz Sharif’s brother Shahbaz will take over as prime minister as soon as he can quit his job as chief minister of Punjab state and get elected to the National Assembly). Another 30 or 40 million people have a modest but tolerable life, and the other 150 million just scrape along the bottom. India is not rich either. Per capita income in India is only about 20 percent higher than in Pakistan, and the per capita income of India’s 190 million Muslims – who are the poorest of the country’s major religious communities – is probably slightly lower than average income in Pakistan. But it’s still worth asking if everybody would have been better off if British-ruled India had not been partitioned in 1947. The proportion of Muslims in the population of an undivided India would have been

so high that they could not be ignored politically. If Pakistan (and Bangladesh, which broke away from Pakistan in 1971) were still part of India, Muslims would not be 13 percent of that un-partitioned India’s population. They would be more than 30 percent. Such an India, assuming it remained democratic, could never have ended up with a sectarian Hindu nationalist like Narendra Modi as prime minister. One-third of the electorate would instinctively vote against him. By the same token, Muslims who stood on a religious platform would not succeed – but lots of Muslims would be elected to high office on their merits. Is this naive? Wouldn’t the evil Hindus just massacre the Muslims? That was, after all, the implicit reasoning behind the demand of a separate state for Muslim Indians. If the Hindu majority haven’t massacred the 190 million Muslims of today’s India, then how were they going to massacre the 530 million Muslims of an undivided India? An estimated 10,000 people have been killed in Hindu-Muslim communal violence in India since 1950, and three of the victims were Muslims for every Hindu killed – but these numbers hardly compare with the immediate and long-term cost in lives of Partition At least a million people were slaugh-

tered in the mutual Muslim-Hindu massacres of 1947, when ten million people moved from India to Pakistan or vice versa. Another million civilians were killed in the 1971 war that broke Pakistan apart and led to an independent Bangladesh. And although the four India-Pakistan wars only killed about 30,000 soldiers, both countries now have nuclear weapons. One other thing. No partition would probably have meant no military coups in the subcontinent. India has been the world’s largest democracy for 70 years, whereas Pakistan and Bangladesh have been ruled by generals for almost half of their independent histories. Could it have happened differently? Both Gandhi, for all his saintly status a profoundly sectarian Hindu leader, and Muhammad Ali Jinnah, the leader of the All-India Muslim League and the founder of Pakistan, were dead within a year after Partition. If the British government had not been in such a panic-stricken rush to get out of India, there might have been time for more moderate Hindu and Muslim leaders to negotiate a different outcome. Or not, as the case may be. This is purely a hypothetical game, because once partition happened it was irreversible. But it would

have certainly been an interesting debate.

South Shuswap Reduce risks, be prepared July has been a very rough month for British Columbia in regards to wildfires, with well over 750 fires damaging more than 370,000 hectares. We have been very fortunate in the South Shuswap to have avoided major fires thus far, but risks remain extremely high as we move into the August fire season. There is a number of decisive actions that can be taken to help reduce your risks of fire damage and these are well-described in the Fire Smart manual. Fire Smart is a program designed to educate homeowners about specific things that can be done to reduce the chances of your home being destroyed in a fire. A key strategy here is to create fire-resistant

zones around your home by removing materials that could easily ignite during a wildfire. For more details, you can access the Fire Smart program at www.bcwildfire.ca/ prevention/docs/homeowner-firesmart.pdf. In addition to preparing your home to be fire resistant, other important strategies to reduce fire risk include staying informed and being prepared. To track the latest information on wildfires, go to www.bcwildfires. ca. An interactive map on that website shows locations, sizes, and causes of currently active wildfires. You can also follow BC Wildfires on Facebook and Twitter. A terrific resource to access is the Shuswap Emergency Program available online at

This CSRD program provides information on a variety of emergency situations, and links to other websites including: BC Wildfires, Drive BC, Prepared BC, Emergency Info BC Alerts & Bulletins, Emergency Management BC and Fire Smart. In an emergency scenario it can be very helpful to follow the CSRD on Facebook or Twitter. All local emergency alerts or orders from the CSRD will be posted on these sites. Please note there is a difference between an emergency alert and an emergency order. An emergency alert means you should be ready to leave on short notice, and an emergency order means that you are at risk and should leave the area immediately. 171 Shuswap St. 250.832.2131

Drive BC provides a current summary of road conditions, incidents and events which can be very useful when planning an evacuation route. I hope that we never have a wildfire emergency situation in the South Shuswap, but it is good to know how to access the information that may be critically important for you and your family.

Award-winners play in the bay Barb Brouwer Salmon Arm Observer

Well known Canadian country rock band Me and Mae perform at Music in the Bay in Blind Bay Thursday, Aug. 3. “This band has a bucketful of amazing songs that you’ll find yourself singing along to as if you’ve heard them a thousand times before,” says Arts Council for the South Shuswap administrator Karen Brown. The band’s latest single “Feel Good Feelin” puts a spotlight on the band’s pop-country vocals and the band’s

ability to create Zac Brown-like harmonies. The band has toured extensively across Canada and is proud to call B.C. home. A little serendipity mixed with an abundance of talent has played a profoundly significant role in the rapid rise of Canada’s, Me and Mae. Shawn Meehan, Caitlin Canning, Adam Reid, Ben Parker and Cameron Belter have forged a reputation as the band to watch on the Canadian country music scene. The single, Love Me Leave Me Lonely,

which Meehan cowrote with Carly Rae Jepsen, opened the barn doors for the band and they haven’t closed since. The release of the debut album Off The Rails in 2014 was quickly followed by a Nashville tour and a nomination for Top Country Best New Artist (2014) and winning the BC Country Music Awards – Ray McAuley Horizon Award (2014). “With such a prolific partnership, momentum, talent and timing on their side, Me And Mae is poised to win over legions of new fans, especially in the

Proceeds fund the Eagle Bay Hall Society and the Eagle Bay Community Church. The High Country

JEAN Jean is Funding Coordinator for Salmon Arm Special Olympics. She finds it most rewarding to ensure that fundraising partnerships with local businesses and groups provides community exposure and interaction for the athletes. Yet, most special were the moments at the windup dinner where the spectacle of the athletes, excited and receiving awards brought her to tears of joy. She encourages potential volunteers to, “Come fly with us!” Make a difference! All types of people are needed. Email salmonarm.sobc@gmail.com.

INFORMATION DESIGNED TO PROMOTE AND ENHANCE YOUR WELLBEING

Adjustments Change Brain Function FAMILY CHIROPRACTIC Dr. Warren Gage In both the mainstream medical and alternative health professions, everyone knows that stress is a killer. Research published in 2008 showed upwards of 90% of primary care doctor visits dealt with stress-related issues. One of the biggest challenges is to help people better cope with stress through healthy living and more conscious lifestyle choices. Research is also show-

ing that the part of the body most susceptible to damage from high levels of stress is the brain. Therefore, strategies that are going to have the biggest positive effect on stress and health must focus on protecting the brain. With all of the advancements in medical technology, Doctors can use PET scanners, similar to an MRI machine, to detect adverse functions and diseases

in the body especially the brain, heart and nervous system. A study titled, “Glucose Metabolic Changes in the Brain and Muscles of Patients with Nonspecific Neck Pain Treated by Spinal Manipulation Therapy: A FDG PET Study.” and was published in Evidence-based complementary and alternative medicine - January 2017. This study scanned the brains of 21 test subjects before and after a specific Chiropractic neck adjustment. The exciting results were that the PET scan showed increased brain

function and decreased stress levels in every single test subject. Measurements also recorded the occurrence of multiple changes in brain activity. Movement, posture, emotions, learning, and memory centers of the brain all improved after the Chiropractic adjustment. The brains of the test subjects also showed a reduction in fight or flight activity which means they experienced a calming effect on the brain which led to reduced tension in muscles. Measurements also showed a decreased level of stress induced chemicals in

the saliva. This is another study proving that regular Chiropractic care reduces stress effects on the brain/central nervous system and adds to the growing body of evidence that Chiropractic adjustments have a positive effect on emotions, thought, hormones and memory. From infants to elderly, everyone can benefit from specific Chiropractic adjustments. Dr. Warren Gage is a family wellness Chiropractor who can be reached at Harbourfront Family Chiropractic at (250) 803-0224.

Tips for saving on summer entertaining (NC) With the hot weather in full swing, many of us are gearing up for outdoor entertaining. But whether you throw a barbecue or host a campfire roast, you’ll soon realize that summer entertaining starts to add up. Canadians are already smart and use their wallets wisely when it comes to grocery shopping. In fact, according to a recent survey, there are two main factors we take into consideration before even stepping out the door with our list: fair pricing and good value for money. Joe Scire, a No Frills store owner, knows his customers are looking for fresh food at great

deals. “I consider myself an advocate for the savvy shopper and I want my customers to wear their frugality like a badge of honour and save as much as they can” he says. “In every aisle of my store you can find essentially the same quality food as offered by other stores, but at a lower price. Those fancy displays at other stores don’t change the fact that a banana is a banana.” In speaking to his customers, Scire knows that summer entertaining is on everyone’s minds. He wants his community to know that in addition to the low prices found at his

store, there are some other great ways to be known as the host with the most without worrying about breaking the bank. Here are his top tips for saving on your next grocery shopping trip: • Check the weekly

flyer and stock up on sale items. • Take advantage of price matching to score the best savings in a single store. • Use a rewards program to earn points and save on a future grocery bill.

• Make a list to reduce impulse buys. • Know the everyday price for your staple grocery items and shop where you can get the best value. www.newscanada.com

Spaces offer a breath of fresh air LIVING Well Nothing says we have left winter behind like the onset of sunshine, warm weather and clean fresh air! We can’t wait to head outside and breathe deeply; experiencing the freshness of the summer season. We love to congregate and recreate in our favourite public spaces such as parks, play grounds, athletic fields, beaches and cycling or walking trails. These common places are important spaces for families to visit, play and explore. British Columbia is known for its natural beauty and our communities strive to offer healthy and safe family friendly environments. Children especially thrive as they experience the great outdoors with their families and friends. Have you ever been out at one of your favourite parks enjoying

an afternoon picnic or participating in a game of catch with your children when slowly you begin to notice the smell of cigarette smoke? For many of us, cigarette smoke, also known as second-hand smoke, interferes with our enjoyment of the outdoors. Most smokers and non-smokers agree, smoking and children do not mix – and it makes sense to protect children from being exposed to tobacco smoke. It is encouraging to see the many opportunities our local governments have engaged in to enhance the health of their communities. Local governments have regularly partnered with businesses and community groups to assist in establishing smoke-free outdoor spaces. More than ever before, families are celebrating and

enjoying time in smokefree spaces. There are a number of other good reasons to enhance smokefree outdoor spaces. Smoke-free spaces also help reduce litter related to tobacco waste and reduce the risk of human- caused fires thereby protecting our environment. Establishing smoke-free spaces assists community efforts to “go green” and be environmentally friendly while eliminating concerns about discarded cigarette butts that may be

ingested by children, pets and wildlife. So this summer, let’s gather our families and get outside and enjoy our smoke- free beaches, parks and trails. For more information on smoke-free outdoor spaces visit Clean Air Coalition – British Columbia. If you know of someone who is considering stopping smoking, support is available at Quitnow.ca. -The author, Maggie Strosher, is a tobacco reduction coordinator with Interior Health.

When you have something to sell, it pays to advertise

breastfeeding still best for baby HealtHy bites Serena Caner One of the only nutrition issues with global consensus is that breastmilk is the best choice for babies. Why? Breast milk is a custom-made form of nutrition that changes throughout the feed: you start off with a thirst-quenching soup, move on to a vitamin-rich main course, and end with a fatty dessert. It also adapts itself throughout the development of your baby, changing as it grows. Breast milk is easier to digest than formula and protective against

multiple diseases and allergies. For mothers, breastfeeding can contribute to post-pregnancy weight loss and delay return of menstruation. With increased maternity leaves and more supportive hospital breastfeeding policies in 2011-12, 96 per cent of women in BC initiated breastfeeding. However, only 26 per cent continued to exclusively breastfeed for the recommended six months. Why drop out? The answer to this question is complex, but in general, new mothers need support (read “support,” not

“nagging” or “pressure.”) When I was having my first child, I assumed that breastfeeding was an easy and instinctive activity that I would enjoy. However, that was not my initial experience. Having given birth to a baby, I was sore, exhausted and dealing with hormonal changes. I remember my nipples being so raw that I could not wear a t-shirt and felt overwhelmed, if not despair, about having to feed my baby every couple of hours. The first few months it felt like all I did was eat, sleep, and breastfeed (between diaper changes and loads of laundry). I remember wishing that I could take a few days holiday or pass off the respon-

sibility to my husband. The good news is breastfeeding does get easier and may even become enjoyable. It is also helpful to remind yourself that it is short-lived: eventually, your baby will be able to take solid food. If exclusive breastfeeding for six months is not a manageable option for you, pumping and bottle-feeding, using a breastmilk bank or supplementing what

feeds you can do with formula are better choices than giving only formula to your child. If you are having issues, there are a number of people can help you out: doctors, doulas, public health nurses, dietitians, lactation consultants, midwives, or dial 8-1-1 anytime. -Serena Caner is a registered dietitian at Shuswap Lake General Hospital.

Business

Longtime jeweller opts for retirement FRIENDS & NEIGHBOURS Leah Blain On August 26, D C Quinn’s Jewellers is closing its doors after 30 years of business. “I’m retiring,” says goldsmith Dennis Quinn as he quips a little rhyme about being ‘bent and busted.’ Over the years the business has been in various locations around town. “We started off in a small little store on Shuswap Street and we’ve evolved from there to here with a full blown gift shop,” says Lynne. There other locations included Alexander Street (where Victorian Lace is now) and across the street from their present location, where they have been for six years. Over the past decades, they have seen a few changes in jewelry styles. “Thirty years ago it

was either yellow gold or silver, there was no white gold. Over the years that has changed and now white gold is more predominate. It’s gone from traditional settings to more designer stuff,” says Lynne. Because they have been in business this long, most of their customers have become their friends as well. Dennis is booked solid until his final day, so he isn’t taking any more repairs, and he is adamant he isn’t doing any more work once he’s retired. Dennis and Lynne plan to spend their retirement fishing and golfing. “Well, me not so much,” says Lynne, “I’ll be the tagalong.”

Up for Sale

We both have personal circumstances that have changed.”

They will be located in the former Java Jive location at the corner of the Trans Canada and Alexander Street.

Tourism stats

Shuswap tourism numbers for July are down somewhat (around seven per cent drop from 2016), says Salmon Arm Chamber Manager Corryn Grayston. “I suspect it is totally attributable to the fires and air quality issues throughout the province. However, Shuswap Tourism, Thompson Okanagan Tourism Association and ourselves are making concentrated efforts, through various social media channels, to ensure tourists that Salmon Arm and the Shuswap region are ‘forest fire free’ and we are well-positioned to offer tourists an amazing vacation with memorable experiences.” Grayston says they are speaking with visitors who were intending to head into areas affected by fire about extending their stays – which has been well-received as an alternative to heading home early.

6 TIPS FOR HAVING FUN AND STAYING SAFE IN THE SHUSWAP

on River Salm

Between floods and fires, the Shuswap’s tourism industry continues to take hits this summer. Now, Shuswap MLA Greg Kyllo is calling on the NDP government to send out the message that B.C.– and in particular the Shuswap – is still welcoming guests. In a letter to Lisa Beare, Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture, Kyllo discusses the hardships being faced by local tourism operators. “Tourist are cancelling their holidays, even to area that have not suffered losses due to the fires. Hotels, restaurant and many other businesses are reporting significant declines in their revenues – many who count on the summer season to support then for the entire year,” he writes. “It’s important to let visitors know we are still open for business, especially in the Shuswap, where we have not been directly

impacted by the wildfires.” Both the Salmon Arm and Sicamous Visitor Information Centres are reporting fewer people coming through the doors this season, and anecdotal reports from their staff indicate they are receiving many calls form tourists asking about air quality and proximity to fires. “People are nervous,” says Robin Cyr, Shuswap Tourism manager in a previous Observer interview. “First they are hearing floods and now fires.” Kyllo would like to see some action taken before the summer season is over. “I’m asking the province to develop a positive media campaign to help counteract the negative news coverage that B.C. is currently receiving,. This initiative would help to assure the thousands of tourists who keep our tourism industries running, that British Columbia is open and ready to welcome them and their families.”

NO LIFEJACKET?

You can borrow one for a child freeof-charge from a Kids Don’t Float PFD loaner station, provided by the Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue, Station 106 Shuswap. There are 12 loaner stations located around the Shuswap! Always ensure a child’s lifejacket is properly secured and fits snugly.

2. Have a sober skipper! Never boat under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

3. Be prepared for every outing on the water. Check your pre-departure checklist.

4. Be extra cautious around cold water,

such as in early summer or diving more than a few feet below the surface. Cold water can disable you from re-surfacing.

5. Always use a spotter for tow sports 6. Watch for floating and partially

sub-merged debris. The Shuswap is surrounded by forest, and logs and other debris may be in the water at all times of year.

Know the rules and regulations for boating. Transport Canada* requires you to: • Have a muffler on your boat that’s in good working order • Not leak fuel from your boat at any time • Always operate your boat with due care and attention • Limit your speed to 10 km/h within 30 m of shorelines *Small Vessel Regulations and Vessel Operation Restriction Regulations, Canada Shipping Act, 2001”

The Tolonen will be setting sail for the Shuswap where it will be stationed with Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue Shuswap Station 106 in Sicamous for operations on Shuswap and Mara lakes.

Marine rescue fleet expands Lachlan Labere Salmon Arm Observer

The Shuswap’s on-water emergency response agency continues to grow with the arrival of the rescue vessel Tolonen. Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue Shuswap Station 106 expects to receive the Tolonen on Wednesday, Aug. 2, and will have it on display in Sicamous on Saturday, Aug. 5, for the community’s Sun and Sand Parade and community barbecue. “ S t at i o n 106 Shuswap of the Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue has been working over the last two years to add a second vessel to it’s Sicamous-based Marine Search and Rescue Operations. We are pleased to announce that this is now a reality,” says RCMSAR Shuswap Station 106 station leader Rob Sutherland. The Tolonen is a 2007 40-foot Titan rigid hull inflatable. It is being transferred

to the Shuswap from RCM SAR Station 103 in Victoria. Prior to arriving in the Shuswap, the vessel is undergoing a retrofit so as to extend its lifespan by at least another 10 years. Sutherland said the new-to-the-Shuswap boat will be Station 106’s main asset for search and rescue operations on Shuswap and Mara lakes. Tolonen will join Shuswap Station’s current fleet, which includes Shuswap Guardian One and Shuswap Rescue One. A recent addition expected to go into service this month, Shuswap Guardian One, a 1989 19-foot Boston Whaler, will be used to encourage boating safety and pleasure craft courtesy checks, all to raise awareness. Shuswap Rescue One, a 1989 29-foot Lifetimer, has been Station 106’s main rescue boat, serving Mara and Shuswap lakes since 2012.

Tools for when depression hits NAN DICKIE Opening Our Eyes One marvellous characteristic of a depression support group is that, when someone says, “I can’t do anything about being depressed,” they don’t get away with it. It’s true that, if we live with clinical depression or bi-polar disorder, we can’t choose whether, or when, or for how long we have an episode. Nor can we choose what symptoms we have, nor how intense. Given these tough realities, it is understandable that a person who is in an episode will cry out in frustration, anger or agony in a support group meeting – or anywhere for that matter – that they “can’t do anything about it.” The first response they will receive from other participants in the support group will be something like, “I know what your mean,” or “I’m sorry you’re feeling depressed.” This will be followed quickly by someone saying, “I used to feel that way.” And then the conversation gets rolling, with participants sharing the ways in which they approach their episodes, the things they choose to do to help make this episode, this trip to hell, as tolerable as possible. In other words, they say they can, in fact,

“do something” about being depressed. There are many “tools” available to those of us who live with mood disorders, anxiety and PTSD. I can list only a few of them here. I’ll introduce more in a future article. One category is lifestyle tools. We need to eat a healthy, balanced diet, and be aware of the effects of stimulants (sugar and coffee for example) and depressants (alcohol) on our bodies and our minds. Fresh air provides us with essential Vitamin D; moderate exercise generates endorphins in our brains; sufficient sleep, if we can achieve that, gives us energy to cope positively with our symptoms. We should incorporate these tools all the time, even when we are well, and especially during episodes. Then there are talking support tools. When we are depressed, we are often too much “in our heads.” We need sometimes to unload, or get help with our inner chatter, which can be as destructive as self-loathing. We can consult with a therapist or counsellor in either the public mental health system or the private sector. Individual or group therapy may be pre-

list of their Canadian tour stops. Grainger’s dad, Bill Grainger, lives here. This will be her third time coming to Salmon Arm as a performer, but Grainger says this show, “Liandola,” is a lot different from the troupe’s other performances. “There are different styles of Flamenco, many of them are intense, sad, and mournful with darker themes. This style is more like a celebration, cheeky, playful and energetic. Fin de Fiesta Flamenco runs Aug. 10 at Shuswap Theatre. Show time is 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. Tickets are on sale online at www.findefiestaflamenco.com, or at Intertwined Fibre Arts on Hudson Avenue.

Five years ago Lia Grainger gave up her stable life in Toronto and moved to Spain to pursue her love of flamenco dancing. “I had not intended to move there, it just sort of happened,” says Grainger. “I went there for a month and came back, went for four months, and then – I just lived there.” Her hobby grew into a career and now she tours Europe and Canada with her group, Fin de Fiesta Flamenco. Giving up a secure paycheck and moving to a country where you don’t speak the language isn’t for everyone. “Sometimes I think what I’m doing is crazy,” she says in a phone interview from Bordeaux, France. But Grainger says it was just something she had to do. “I started Flamenco dancing in my early 20s. Then I started a career in journalism but the desire to be part of that [flamenco] world never went away.” She moved to Seville and got her own studio so she could spend as much time practising as she wanted.

Integrity trumps wealth Leah Blain Salmon Arm Observer

For an artist, Carl Chaplin has an unusual attitude towards his profession. “We’re constantly lying in art. Like a good play, a good story – it’s not accurate – so it’s a lie, but in the overall context it helps you see or understand reality. It lets you see the truth when in fact it’s still a little lie.” But then again, Chaplin is an unusual artist. Using the latest computer technology and airbrushes, he holds unwaveringly to the ancient principles of classic art, the golden ratio, also known as phi. The golden ratio is a term used to describe how elements within a piece of art can be placed in the most esthetically pleasing way. Chaplin was born in Windsor, Ont. but his family moved to Detroit after the Second World War because “all the jobs were in Detroit.” He loved drawing space ships, rockets, military tanks, and cars with his crayons. “But I really liked to draw mushrooms. My family belonged to the nature club and we went for hikes and our leader was the main fungus expert in the University of Michigan. We would bring them back and

lay them out, I would get my sketch pad and draw mushrooms. They were so fascinating.” Chaplin first saw real mountains when his family was on a road trip; he was about 14 years old. “We were in our station wagon and the mountains were about 100 kilometres off. Dad stopped the car and we could see them on the horizon. I was sold.” He knew he wanted to live in the mountains but it would be a few years before he would move to British Columbia. After high school Chaplin apprenticed at the two largest art studios in the world: New Center Studios and McNamara’s, in Detroit. He saved up enough money to buy his own airbrush and

moved to Vancouver in 1970. It was a good decision. “There was only one other airbrush (artist) in Vancouver. He went to Victoria and I had to the city to myself for five years.” Jobs were plentiful and he was part of the team that created the ‘Super Natural British Columbia’ tourism slogan and look. Increasingly Chaplin was uneasy about using his art to do things like make beer foamier in advertising campaigns and he began to use it more for causes he believed in. He donated work to organizations like the David Suzuki Foundation, and to raise awareness for environmental, ecological, climate, and social issues. He did a series of paintings depicting nuclear destruction, Art Nuko. The contro-

versy it created back in the 1980s hit him in the pocketbook. “I would have done better professionally and financially if I just painted mountains, flowerscapes and portraits,” he says, “but I feel pride that I’ve accomplished something.” Would he have changed anything? He reflects for only a moment. “I would have painted more, faster. If I could do the show over again I would have hit them harder.” In his studio in Lee Creek, Chaplin has an impressive number of canvases, each with its own stunningly beautiful vibrancy. The subject matters range from trains and whales to the surreal and nuclear war, and his still-loved theme of mushrooms. Continued on A26

4-H Beef Stock Show a big success

Don’t take a wrong turn

The Mall at Piccadilly

Friday, August 4, 2017 Page A27

250 832-2181

The 36th annual Okanagan 4H Stock Show and sale took place July 4th- 8th in Armstrong at the interior provincial exhibition grounds where 4-H clubs participated from Horse Dairy and Beef divisions. To kick the event off in the beef and dairy side kids participated in instructional day all day Wednesday doing workshops to help them learn techniques on fitting showmanship and judging. Opening Ceremonies took place Wednesday night in the Cow Palace with all members Horse Dairy and Beef parading with club colors and banners celebrating Canada 150 and all being together once again for stock show festivities. We were thrilled to have Armstrong mayor Chris Pieper and MC and BC 4-H Ambassador Tristan Wintrup make presentations to our members and guests with our group of cloverbuds singing O Canada and reciting the 4-H pledge to all. New to stock show this year, we implemented the cloverbud program(6-8 years old) led by north Okanagan beef ’s Andrea van Iterson. Wednesday morning the children went for a walkabout to several local downtown businesses including the IPE office, Shepherd Hardware Armstrong Fire Department, Hornby Equipment, Village Cheese, Askews Foods, Armstrong Vet Clinic and Chocolira. Andrea also took time to teach them aspects of washing fitting and caring for a beef project as well as judging and other activities each day. Thursday was an exciting day of fitting competition and female classes, including best pair of heifers and group of three heifers, crowning Mariah Mitchell of the North Okanagan beef club the champion yearling Heifer award as well as home grown heifer. Her brother, Tye Mitchell of North Okanagan the champion cowcalf and Champion female of show award receiving a beautiful Silver Buckle sponsored by

Ted and Lynn Fitchett. Friday was a hustle and bustle day for each and every one of these kids with temperatures in the high 30s. All week they really did a great job of pulling it all together and making it a fabulous steer show with both the 4-H sale steer classes, open steer classes and group classes. After much  deliberation Jr. Member Elsie Rawlings  of the North Okanagan Beef Club was thrilled to accept 2 beautiful buckles for the Grand Champion steer in both sale and open divisions, with her fellow club member Mariah Mitchell taking the Reserve Champion banner and blanket and cash awards! Our champion home grown steer was owned, raised and shown by Junior member and 1st year Stock Show attendee Paisley Clemitson, also of the North Okanagan Beef Club. Friday afternoon the show would wrap up with the amazing presentation of members doing their Showmanship classes. Judge Kevin Wirsta and his daughter Kailey of K cow Ranch , Elk Point Alberta had the opportunity to spend time with each and every member during the week and really got to understand their abilities, strengths and places for improvement which made his job of choosing his Champion Showman Alana Higgins of Todd Mountain 4-H club a great final choice. The Milky Way dairy club was also busy with their club achievement show in the Agri Plex, competing in conformation and showmanship classes as well, so there was so much good stuff going on all over the grounds. The Okanagan 4-H Stock Show committee would like to thank Lynn’s catering of Armstrong and Patrick Riley of EZ Rock Salmon Arm for doing the fabulous catering job and delicious meal for the beef banquet  and dance following for all the members Dairy and Horse along with beef. There were plenty of smiles, exciting moments and new friendships

made throughout the week. However, Friday also brought news that the members of the Horsefly Club would be directly affected by  the forest fires devastating their areas.  Saturday morning came early with the highly-anticipated 4-H grain-fed steer sale and breakfast sponsored by Western Livestock Marketing Solutions and served and prepared by the Armstrong Lions Club. Nobody could have been prepared for what was to unfold at 10 a.m. in the beef show ring where 25 grain fed steers we’re auctioned off individually by Valley Auction Limited and their team for a no doubt record-breaking price of $4.62/lb average live weight. The stands were full and brimming over with excitement. The thrill of such a wonderful event and the opportunity to support such great kids out doing fabulous stuff was obvious as people kept raising their hands to bid steer after steer. Cache Clemitson of the North Okanagan beef Club was honoured to take home the high selling steer cheque of $6.25/lb pound with his home grown Angus cross steer at a weight of 1406 lbs. The generosity continued following the steer sale as 12 T-Shirts left over from instructional day were auctioned off with proceeds going to the Horsefly families that didn’t know what they would be returning home to. The crowd jumped in and waved their hands to raise nearly  $3000.00 The 4-H motto says...”Hands to larger service,  Heart to greater Loyalty!!” On behalf of everyone involved with the 2017 Stock Show and Sale, I would like to say a huge thank you to all for the sponsorship, in kind donations, judges, volunteer helpers and folks showing a genuine interest in our young ranchers and farmers!! What a show!! see you all next year same time and place! Trudi Schweb AKA Cowboss.

Salmon Arm Observer/Shuswap Market News

www.saobserver.net

protecting the province’s mighty white sturgeon ShuSwap OutdOOrS Hank Shelley A great article in a recent outdoor magazine gave a glowing account on celebrating 20 years of protecting the mighty white sturgeon for the Fraser River. The river’s conservation society, over time, have brought together government, First Nations, commercial and recreational anglers and with research, education and inspiration to work together for the species. Founding member, Rick Hansen has been a leader for protecting and enhancing the mighty fish. After a mysterious die-off in 1993, where hundreds of sturgeon washed up on banks in

the lower Fraser River, then Minister of Environment Moe Sihota put a moratorium and then a catch-andrelease-only on the species. When the society began in 1997, it was decided a unique research system was needed. Out of this, the monitoring and tagging program had a handle on 182 river kilometres from the estuary to the Fraser Canyon. It is now estimated there are about 55,000 sturgeon in the system. As well, there are good numbers from Lytton to Lillooet. The society depends on volunteers using the special PIT

tags and a recapture model to determine abundance, with midsize fish growing well, but juvenile numbers declining. The downside to the great work the society is doing, is poaching of juvenile or undersized sturgeon being drift netted at night, then smoked and sold. Also, with shorter salmon seasons on the Fraser River, more anglers have opted to fish sturgeon, putting great stress on the fish, as with one guide and his party leaving a spot, another guide or party moves in to catch and play the fish or move to known good holes. (Some spots have holes close to 59 feet.) Age classes: Female sturgeon reach sexual maturity between 26 to 36 years old, and only spawn every 10 years. As a long-lived species,

white sturgeon can exceed 150 years old. Experiences: Way back when, as a fishery officer working out of the Lillooet office, officer Deb Speer and I were leaving on a two-day enforcement patrol to Clinton, over Cougar mountain, to the Big Bar ferry, but stopped to view the Bridge River where two natives had a gill net out. Tangled in the net was a very large sturgeon. Contacting the chief of the Fountain Band, we got permission to check the net. The Fraser was running very high with logs and debris roaring by. Tightening up my PFD, I approached the sight. No sturgeon. I chatting with the native, who said they had tied the big guy off. He pointed up river and, sure enough, there was

our sturgeon, finning contentedly in the murky, fast current, with a yellow nylon rope behind the head and another by the tail. It was a seven-foot old warrior, with scars on the back, and worn barbles. The old boy lived in a cave down below. The natives were cleaning their chinook on site, and throwing the offal into the river, giving the sturgeon a handy meal on the openings for them of three days per week. Old Capoose and his woman were camped down from the Gang Ranch, on the Fraser River. Now he had set a heavy line with a chunk of liver for bait into the big, deep backwater, where he had seen the large sturgeon roll, each evening, as light faded against the sagebrush

hills across the river. He tied the line to a small poplar tree at river’s edge. At daybreak next morning, the tree was swaying violently, and old Capoose began to tug and pull on the line. His wife, although frightened was called to help. Finally, after two hours, the huge sturgeon was pulled onto the rocky shore. The fish was so big, both didn’t know what to do, but take it back to the village to share. While cutting up the sturgeon, there

was a commotion in the water below and, with fear, both looked, to see its mate jumping and swirling on the surface, even charging close to shore. Truly then they knew both sturgeon had lived together for many years. Old Capoose told the story many times to his children, and grandchildren, about the mighty sturgeon, and to respect the salmon, the sturgeon, the deer and all living things, because in nature, they are all connected.

GORDON BETTLES April 21, 1929 - July 28, 2017 Gordon Bettles passed away peacefully at Piccadilly Care Centre in Salmon Arm, B.C. on July 28, 2017 at the age of 88 years. Born in Seaforth, Ontario, he married Helen in 1952 and they went west to BC shortly after. They arrived in Haney in 1954 planning to stay for a short while that somehow turned into 15 years before moving to Salmon Arm in 1969. Self-employed for most of his working life Gordon was a big strong hard-working man with a loud voice and piercing whistle that made the kids come running. Trained as a finishing carpenter, Gordon built and renovated countless houses at the coast and in the Shuswap. He did it all from foundation to roof including design and cabinetry, and later branched out into subdivision and gravel pit development. He and Helen also operated a fibreglassing business for 8 years, weatherproofing many sundecks in the Shuswap. In 1992 they moved to 108 Mile Ranch for 6 years before returning to Salmon Arm. Gordon was an avid hunter and fisherman, often providing wild game and catches for the dinner table. Helen and Gordon spent many happy hours with family and friends camping in everything from tent to motorhome, with most travels focused on discovering the many sights of Canada. Gordon is survived by Helen, his wife of 64 years, children June Stewart, Brenda Mason (Lorne), and Brian (Jane), grandsons Jeremy Anderberg, James Stewart (Lauren), Gordan and Andrew Bettles, granddaughter Ashley Stewart, and great-granddaughter Sadie Stewart. No service by request but an afternoon social will be held on Saturday August 12 from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. at the Salmon Arm Lawn Bowling Club, 691 28 Street NE to exchange stories and memories of Gordon’s life. He will be remembered by the Bettles subdivision and Bettles gravel pit in Gleneden that bear his name. The family would like to express their sincere appreciation to the staff of Piccadilly Care Centre for their care of Gordon over the last 16 months. Donations may be made to BC Wildlife Federation in his memory and condolences can be shared at fischersfuneralservices.com

JEAN (ENID) LAYDEN (Enid) Jean Layden passed away peacefully in Hillside Village, Salmon Arm, on Wednesday, July 19, 2017 at the age of 93 years. Mom was delivered at home on the farm in Condor, Alberta on January 7, 1924. She was the third child born to Harry Veale Bice and Annie May Rutherford. Even though the family knew extreme hardship during the 1930’s, she only shared very fond memories of her childhood on the farm, especially the Spring when new life abounded. After completing Grade 13, she started her career as a very proficient bookkeeper at the Creamery in Olds, Alberta. Mom was the girl of Dad’s dreams and they were wed on December 27, 1948. In the fall of 1955, they followed family to B.C. It was not long before their entrepreneurial spirit surfaced and in partnership with sister and brother in law, Joe and June Buresh they started up a very successful building moving business in Kelowna. This partnership continued with the opening of J Lanes Bowling Alley in Salmon Arm in September of 1963. On June 21, 1969 Gerry and Jean moved with their four teenagers to Salmon Arm as owner operators of Sandy Point Resort. In June 1979, they started construction of the Racquet Ball Centre in Salmon Arm with a grand opening on December 27, 1979. Mom was a very sharp business woman but in all her professional ventures she is best remembered and loved for her compassionate and caring treatment of people. This was never more evident than at the Racquetball Centre where she made everyone feel like family and became fondly known as ‘Gramma Jean.’ Jean was predeceased by her beloved husband and business partner of 51 years, Gerry, brothers Victor and Toby, sister and brother in law, June and Joe, her father Harry Bice and mother, Annie ‘Gramma’ Bice and grandson, Ryley Irwin. She leaves her loving and dedicated children, Garnie of Penhold, Alberta, Larry of Rutland, Donna (Jack) Irwin and Dianne (Jeff Zupancic) both of Salmon Arm; 9 Grandchildren; Brad, Jenny, Micheal, Marty, Kelly, Gavin, Jeremy, Brianne, Cody and 8 Great Grandchildren; Maddox, Cohen, Zoe, Astrea, Ryley, Jake, Ava and Cali. The family would like to offer heartfelt thanks to the staff of Hillside Village. The care she received was kind, considerate and loving always. They will also be forever grateful to Dr. Heunis, whose care could not have been more compassionate or devoted. A family graveside service, next to Gerry, was held on July 31st in Mt. Ida Cemetery. A Celebration of life service will be held from the chapel of Bowers Funeral Home, Salmon Arm, on Sunday morning, August 13th at 11 a.m. with Jack Bowers the funeral Celebrant. Tributes will be shared by family and friends. On line condolences may be sent to Jean’s obituary at www.bowersfuneralservice.com Funeral arrangements are in the care of Bowers Funeral Home, Salmon Arm.
