Police watchdog drops investigation

No connection made between Sicamous RCMP and man’s injuries. Lachlan Labere eagle Valley News

The Independent Investigations Office of B.C. has found no connection between the actions of a Sicamous RCMP and a man who was sent to hospital with self-inflicted injuries. IIO spokesperson Aidan Buckley provided the update in a Wednesday interview. He said the IIO had discontinued its investigation of the incident, which occurred in the vicinity of a

Maier Road car wash and service station in the afternoon of Tuesday, Aug. 8. “In order for the IIO to investigate an incident, we’re notified by the police and, in order for us to continue an investigation, it has to meet kind of like a two-part test, one being the presence of serious harm, and the second being a connection to police action,” explained Buckley. “So if both of those tests are met, we’ll continue investigating. In this incident, there is no

connection between the injuries sustained and the actions of the police, so we released jurisdiction back to the RCMP.” A police report released late Tuesday night states at 11:26 a.m. that day, Sicamous RCMP received a report of a man who was allegedly threatening to kill himself with a knife near the car wash. Responding officers asked Emergency Health Services to attend. Upon arrival, the officers found the man with what appeared to be

self-inflicted wounds. “The man then ran away from police while allegedly continuing to injure himself with a weapon,” states the report. “A police officer proceeded to run after the man on foot into a nearby gas station parking lot while issuing verbal commands to the man to drop the weapon.

Sicamous RCMP and Emergency Health Services paramedics responded to a report of a man who had self-inflicted wounds near the Maier Road car wash on Tuesday, Aug. 8.

Young man taken to hospital Continued from A1 to verbally engage the man who eventually got to his knees on the ground. The CEW, also known as a taser, was not deployed and the man was apprehended without further incident.” The two officers on the scene provided immediate first aid until Emergency Health

Services paramedics arrived. The man was then transported to hospital in Salmon Arm for treatment. As per protocol, IIO was contacted by police following the incident. Sicamous RCMP Sgt. Murray McNeil said the man was not from Sicamous and he had heard the man had undergone surgery.

McNeil added family members were with the man in hospital. “It was a really unfortunate incident,” said McNeil. “It was a young person having a crisis moment, and we were very fortunate that he didn’t lose his life. He sustained some very significant injuries, self-inflicted, and we were lucky we

were able to deal with that… Hopefully he’s getting the care he needs.”

City reservoirs under pressure Residents asked to conserve, follow sprinkling rules.

The city wants residents to follow regulations which limit sprinkling to two days per week. don’t think we will get there.” In the winter, people in the city generally use about six million liters of water a day. The city is now using about 24 million litres. That’s 46 per cent higher for this time of year than the five-year average. Niewenhuizen points to a recent experience – the big windstorm a couple of weeks ago. “The power went out in a number of areas… It went out at Metford Dam, it went out at Canoe at the treatment plant, and it went out at Kault Hill, which is our telemetry station – the radio link between all of our feeds. We had no way to produce water – all we were doing was watching the reservoirs go down and down and down. We were trying to get a hold of hydro to see if they could focus their attention on getting us back up and running. Which they did. But those are situations we can’t control. By having less water in our reservoirs, it just doesn’t give us that backup.” And aside from the potential for problems pumping water during power outages, if the reservoirs get too low,

there might not be enough water to fight fires. He explains a backup generator at the plant was too costly so was not an option. Instead, the city’s backup is extra water in the reservoirs. “I don’t want to throw out a scare to say ‘Oh, we don’t have enough water to fight a home fire,’” emphasizes Niewenhuizen. “It’s about the people who are sprinkling in the middle of the day and over-sprinkling. We just want to draw attention to that. Because of the weather events we’ve had, and the hot, hot dry water that’s being forecast for the next few weeks, we are concerned.” Some residents have pointed to green grass on some city-owned properties and sports fields. Why isn’t the city conserving? Niewenhuizen says the city, like most others, is exempt from sprinkling restrictions. But that doesn’t mean it’s not conscientious. He says taxpayers have put up a huge investment in sports fields. If the city were to let them die, “it would cost the taxpayers an enormous

Shuswap Lake contains lots of water, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t an urgent need to use it sparingly. With the high usage of water recently, the city can’t replenish its reservoirs. That leaves the city vulnerable to hazards such as fires and power outages. Water is pumped from the lake and is treated at the plant in Canoe. It’s then pumped around to the city’s half a dozen reservoirs. From the reservoirs it’s dispersed throughout the city. “What we’re finding right now is we’re not catching up,” says Rob Niewenhuizen, the city’s director of public works. “There’s so much usage, the water in the reservoirs, we’re not able to recharge them in the evenings – typically the evenings are low usage.” Monday, a day when no residences are permitted to sprinkle, is a day when the reservoirs are usually restored. However, “we’re finding people are abusing that rule. There’s a lot of usage on Monday.” Niewenhuizen says the city’s bylaw officer will now be ticketing anyone who’s sprinkling on a Monday. If the usage doesn’t go down and the reservoirs can’t keep up, the city could go to a “full level three water restriction,” or no irrigation. “We haven’t got there yet but it could come to that at some point. However,” he adds, “I don’t think we’ve ever been there and I

amount of money to bring those fields back.” He says the city’s irrigation systems are controlled by its weather station, as well as an irrigation technician who responds to problems. Regarding complaints about spray parks, he says the water is not recycled because it must, by health regulations, be treated before it’s re-used, even if it’s for irrigation. That would be very costly. He also says they’re a public service. Niewenhuizen calls Salmon Arm’s water system complicated. While commercial

Backcountry ban sought Richard Rolke Black Press

A group of Falkland area residents are demanding the provincial government take action during B.C.’s wildfire crisis. Yankee Flats Road residents have written Forests Minister Doug Donaldson asking for a full backcountry closure as a way of preventing further wildfires. “We feel that the good, responsible people use common sense and are not going into the backcountry at this time. Sadly, the irresponsible, nonlaw abiding people who uses no common sense are the ones that we need the rules for to keep the rest of us safe,” said resident Pat Peebles in the letter. “To enable the RCMP, fire wardens and forestry officials to be able to do their jobs effectively, we need you to implement a full backcountry closure order.

On Monday night, a quad went through the road check and crashed over some caution signs. “This person was operating with no helmet and no licence plate.

On Tuesday morning at 7:30 a.m., they started gunfire up the mountain until almost noon. We called the RCMP and they explained that if a vehicle goes up the Kelly Main Forest road, parks on the roadway and then walks off into the dry grass to do target practice, that this is still acceptable and legal under your (Donaldson) partial backcountry ban,” said Peebles.

Annis Bay seeking fire protection Lachlan Labere Eagle Valley News

Annis Bay may soon fall under the District of Sicamous’ fire protection services. District council has given its support to a request by the Columbia Shuswap Regional District to extend fire suppression to Bender Road and Annis Bay in Electoral Area E. A report by Fire Chief Brett Ogino states the request originated from the 59 residents of the community, approximately 12 kilometres east of Sicamous. Final approval would depends on the CSRD receiving sufficient approval by Annis Bay residents through a petition process. Furthermore, all costs associated with the provision of fire suppression are to be covered by Annis Bay property owners who benefit from the service through a cost sharing agreement between the CSRD and the District

A

in Annis Bay.” Asked if there might be access issues for fire tenders to reach Bender Road properties, Ogino said some work is needed. “It’s tight in spots, we’re going to be looking for them to do some work in there to clean it up,” said Ogino. But Ogino is supportive of Sicamous expanding fire suppression services to Annis Bay. “Basically, they’ve requested it, we’ve offered it and it’s moving in that direction,” said Ogino. “We’re hopeful that everybody is going to say yeah, OK, let’s make this work.”

Residents of Annis Bay have requested the extension of fire suppression services from the District of Sicamous through the Columbia Shuswap Regional District. of Sicamous. Ogino explained that Annis Bay properties are out of the jurisdiction of both Sicamous and Salmon Arm fire departments. “We’ve had calls, like bushfires and vehicles that have caught fire in the bush and stuff,” said Ogino. “We worry about it spreading so we would respond, but usually it was through a forestry task number, it wasn’t just we’re going out there to fight a fire. I think Salmon Arm has an agreement for car fires and motor-vehicle accidents out to Annis Bay, but they don’t actually do fire protection

shuswap open for business

This has been a rough year, going directly from a flooding crisis to wildfires raging throughout the province. We’ve been blessed by all the people, paid crews and volunteers, that worked hard through the floods to keep the region safe, and those that continue to fight fires. Whether it is concern about loved ones, wanting to help, or just being mesmerized by the awesome power of Mother Nature, there is an insatiable desire on the part of people to know what is going on. But one side effect of the news media’s efforts to do a good job covering these back to back disasters is that some people are getting the impression that all of B.C. is going under. To British Columbians, these are communities we are familiar with: Williams Lake, Princeton, Clinton. To someone farther away, that telescopes into “B.C.” And that’s a problem for areas like the Shuswap and North Okanagan that count tourism as a major economic driver. Hoteliers have had questions from people fearing that smoke or fires would ruin their vacation. It goes beyond that since businesses from attractions and restaurants to convenience stores rely on tourists for a major part of their year’s income. It falls to all of us, from the news media to kids with their cell phones to let the world know the region is open for business. So get out there on social media or whatever you have and let everyone know just what we’ve got to offer. -Vernon Morning Star

hitting the country roads of B.C. the great outdoors James Murray Sometimes I just feel like getting in my Jeep, filling up the gas tank and heading out on the open road – especially when they happen to play a song like Steppenwolf ’s Born To Be Wild or John Denver’s Take Me Home, Country Roads on the radio. That was also the way I felt after reading author and photographer Liz Bryan’s book, Country Roads of British Columbia. “The country roads in Country Roads of British Columbia traverse the province’s heartland where the landscapes are always lovely and sometimes breathtaking. Interwoven with strands of yesterday that lie along the highways and byways, the B.C. tapestry has become a lyrical fusion of landscape and history.” This is a quote from the introduction of Bryan’s book, in which she invites readers to come along and experience British Columbia’s scenic heartland by exploring the amazing

landscapes that make up the province of British Columbia. Through 18 picturesque rural and back-country journeys, mostly in the Interior, between the Rockies and the Coastal Mountains, Bryan takes readers through some of the most diverse and beautiful scenery on the planet. Winding through sagebrush and forest, grassland plateaus and mountain valleys, beside river canyons, lakes and multi-coloured volcanic rocks, the 18 different road trips outlined in Bryan’s book reveal the rich variety of both the province’s geology and natural history. She also shows how the strands of human history are closely interwoven with the land – how First Nations people, fur traders, explorers, gold miners, ranchers, and homesteaders have all left their mark on the land. British Columbia has everything: forests, rivers, lakes, grasslands, alpine peaks, sagebrush plateaus,

desert valleys and badlands. “The great diversity of the province’s landforms can be explained” says Bryan “in part by the province’s remarkable geological history. It is not one land, but several, formed over time by unstoppable tectonic forces and modified by volcanic activity and glacial ice.” Learn the history of First Nations people that is carved into the totems of the Gitxsan people. Journey to their villages under the great ridge of the Rocher Deboule range into a magical landscape of mist and memories, deep forests and high snow-covered mountains. Stand with Bryan at Mile 0 of the Goldrush Trail that begins at the top end of Lilllooet’s Main Street, cross the Bridge of the 23 Camels, and head north together on the back roads to Barkerville. From this one chapter alone I have personally gleaned enough information to research and discover several new areas to pan for gold, and, well let’s just say that Country Roads of British Columbia has more than paid for itself. The Chilcotin is huge, sprawling, and wild. High-

way 20 from Williams Lake to Bella Coola travels through this vast ‘chunk’ of country. “A person could spend several weeks exploring the area’s immense heart, the crumpled spread of the Interior Plateau, and its spectacular interface with some of the highest peaks of the Coast Mountains” writes Bryan. But for a taste of what the Chilcotin really has to offer,” Bryan says, “there is any number of short half-day trips that are well worth the effort. Especially if you are comfortable driving unpaved and often unsigned back roads.” Along ghost trails to ghost towns, across desert badlands and beside raging rivers up into the high country, this book is more than a travel guide or an illustrated history book. For me it has become an invaluable travel companion. It is the kind of book that should be sitting right there beside you on the front seat when you head out for a day trip or holiday – or when the days comes when you finally make the decision to just get in your vehicle, fill the gas tank and head out on the open road.

Letters Welcome

Aquifer review good news for Shuswap Lake Jim Cooperman In the Shuswap, concerns about deteriorating lake water quality has also resulted in numerous studies and the creation of the Shuswap Watershed Council that is tasked with ongoing monitoring, as well as developing solutions. While the concern in Hullcar is primarily with nitrates and in the Shuswap it is with phosphates, both pollutants are likely from the same source – cow manure, which is spread in liquid form from industrial dairy farms. The application of chemical fertilizers also contributes to the problems. Given that only the provincial government has jurisdiction over agriculture, the Shuswap Watershed Council now has the opportunity to share the information it has collected to date, along with its concerns with the province so that any upcoming improvements to agricultural regulations include measures that will also reduce the amount of phosphate loading into streams and lakes. One key report that the Hullcar review should study is the 2014 Agricultural Nutrient Management

A 2007 provincial and federal government investigation showed that 96 percent of local fields posed a high or very high risk of phosphorus leaching or running off into surface water. The problems occurring here and in Hullcar are not unique, as pollution from agricultural wastes is a global problem. Much could be gained by reviewing how other jurisdictions are dealing with the issue. Gaining in popularity is the use of biogas generators that produce electricity while decreasing the amount of methane gas going into the atmosphere, as it is 72 times worse for the climate than CO2 over 20 years. After the methane is cooked out of the manure, the nutrients remain but the material can then be composted. Although it is more costly than the use of lagoons and liq-

One of the first announcements from the new government in Victoria is that there will be a review of the Hullcar aquifer, which has been contaminated by elevated levels of nitrates likely from agricultural wastes. A significant goal for the review is to provide recommendations to improve regulations for agricultural practices province-wide in order to better safeguard drinking water quality. This process should assist local efforts to protect Shuswap and Mara Lake water quality. The situation in nearby Hullcar in the North Okanagan has been grim for sometime now, as the increase in groundwater pollution has coincided with an increase in the size and intensity of the local dairy industry. A drinking water advisory was listed in 2014 for the approximately 80 families who rely on the shallow, unprotected aquifer for their drinking water that is just 1.5 to 14 metres underground. Numerous studies and reports have been made and local dairy farms have received pollution abatement orders.

uid manure spreaders, composting is by far the best solution because it converts the nutrients into non-water soluble salts that soil organisms can consume, which better nurtures the growing crops. Photos of fields in Australia that have been fertilized with composted cow manure show healthy forage crops that are grazed far more often than the depleted neighbouring fields that have been sprayed with effluent. The rules governing agriculture in B.C. have been too lax for far too long, as evidenced by the polluted groundwater in the Fraser Valley that is beyond remediation. Dairy farmers take advantage of the lack of regulations and crowd farmland with far more cows per hectare than is sustainable. Win-win solutions are possible and the Hullcar review will hopefully lead the way.

This Temporary Use Permit to operate an outdoor boat and trailer, and equipment storage area on the western portion of the subject property, located at 3848 Squilax-Anglemont Road in Scotch Creek for a period of three (3) years commencing on the date of issuance, shown on the map below:

Tappen musician honoured Jim Buzash added Weyburn’s wall of fame. Leah Blain News contributor

Shiny black plaques around city hall in Weyburn, Saskatchewan make up their walk of fame. This walk of fame recognizes people who have lived in Weyburn and have made significant contributions to the nation or global community for athletic, cultural, academic, or humanitarian achievements. Inductees include Tommy Douglas, W.O. Mitchell, and Tiger Williams. This year, Jim Buzash’s name was added to the wall in recognition of his contribution to arts and entertainment. “At this age it means

a lot; you know you’ve accomplished something in your life,” says Buzash, who lived in Weyburn for several years. He and his wife, Fran, retired to the Shuswap 25 years ago, living in Blind Bay for 16 years before moving to their current home in Tappen. On his wall Buzash has a framed gold record for his first record, 15 Great Melodies of Many Lands. “We sold a million copies so the producer did that,” he says pointing to it. “He had to pay for five more of them,” he adds laughing. He is referring to the Buzash family band, Betty and Her Brothers Five.

Jim played the violin, Betty played piano, Art was the bass player, Frank was on the accordion, Ernie played the clarinet, and Steve played the clarinet and sax but his brothers made him expand his repertoire. “We needed a guitar player so he had to learn fast.” Jim being the oldest did most of the booking and organizing, but their sister got top billing for a simple reason. “Ladies first,” says Buzash. Although Betty did take some piano lessons, they all mostly played by ear. “My brothers never had a lesson. I tried to read music, I took some lessons, but I

quit. I guess I never had the patience for it.” Buzash and his siblings played all kinds of ethnic and Gypsy music, the kind they learned to love from their parents, their uncle, and grandparents. From the 1960s to 1980s they played for community events, birthday parties, dances, weddings, for parliamentarians, and ambassadors in Regina. It was a good life, says Buzash. “We were always joking around, it was lots of fun. We would play until three or four in the morning, have breakfast at Husky, a couple of hours Continued on A9

They had a 200-seat restaurant which was usually packed thanks to the tasty ethnic food and good music. Buzash was also in demand as a solo artist, but the family went on to make two more

records. Although they weren’t professionals, they were so attuned to each other, they played perfectly together. “When we went to the recording studio the engineer said ours was the only band that he didn’t have to adjust levels.

SHUSWAP MLA

GREG KYLLO

Climate change not a fantasy James Murray’s recent column concerning the ongoing harmful and looming catastrophic effects of increasing water temperatures on salmon, Warming waters bad for salmon, Shuswap Market News, Friday, Aug. 4 – is timely and well-researched. We should make no mistake, the data he cites is not some ‘sky-is-falling’ fringy fantasy; it reflects scientifically solid evidence such as

the U.N.’s IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change), NASA, NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration), and their many, many reputable, respected workers in climate science. Yes, there is no longer any reasonable doubt that climate change and our human role in causing it, is responsible for increasing world temperatures, including ocean and

freshwater temperatures and, consequently, the harmful effects on salmon survival and reproductive physiology – like disruption of normal migration behaviour. I’m grateful to James for his documentation of this impending salmon crisis, but I really wish that he had linked the issue to our culture’s role in bringing it about and through our destructive habits, sustaining its calami-

tous effects. To end his fine review of the problem with a mere entreaty to “please let it rain” is to miss an opportunity for acknowledging our cultural obsession with fossil fuels as the real culprit, and strive to revise that behaviour – soon – perhaps on behalf of future rain?

Drivers lose vehicles after speeding excessively Report

A 22-year-old Richmond man sped his way along Highway 1 to a $368 fine and the temporary loss of his truck. On Monday, Aug. 7, Sicamous RCMP received three driving complaints regarding a black Dodge truck that was being driven at a high rate of speed and passing vehicles in a dangerous manner while travelling west on the Trans-Canada from Revelstoke to Sicamous. Sicamous Sgt. Mur-

ray McNeil said police located the truck on the highway near the Canoe mill, travelling 147 kilometres-an-hour in a 100 km/h zone. In addition to receiving the fine, the man’s truck was impounded for seven days. Also on Monday, Aug. 7, a 25-year-old Calgary man was fined $463 for driving a rental Ford F150 pickup truck 60 km/h over the posted speed limit on Highway 1 near Yard Creek in Malakwa. The rental truck was impounded for seven days and the man was driven into Sicamous to make alternative

travel arrangements.

Collisions

On Saturday, Aug. 5, Sicamous RCMP responded to a report of a three-vehicle collision on Highway 1 and MacLean MacPherson Rd. Sgt. McNeil said a Ford F150 towing a travel trailer failed to stop in time for traffic, which had stopped to allow a westbound Jeep turn onto MacLean MacPherson. The F150 then rear-ended another F150, which then struck the jeep. Both of the pickup trucks were no longer operable and had to be towed. McNeil said a

48-year-old Edmonton man was charged with following too close. On Thursday, Aug. 3, Sicamous RCMP re-

sponded to a report of a two-vehicle collision in the 8500 block of Highway 97A.Officers found a northbound rented

Dodge Caravan had struck a Mazda with enough force to push it into the northbound ditch, rendering it in-

Dealing with Kim Jong-Trump GLOBAL VIEWS Gwynne Dyer “I’m not saying we wouldn’t get our hair mussed, Mr President, but I do say not more than ten or twenty million dead, depending on the breaks.” So said General ‘Buck’ Turgidson, urging the US president to carry out a nuclear first strike, in Stanley Kubrick’s 1963 film ‘Dr Strangelove: or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb.’ But nobody in Kubrick’s movie talked like Kim Jong-un (“American bastards would be not very happy with this gift sent on the July 4 anniversary,” he crowed, celebrating North Korea’s first successful test of an ICBM). They didn’t talk like Donald Trump either (“North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States. They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen.”) Kubrick’s film came out the year after the Cuban missile crisis, when the world went to the brink of nuclear war after the Soviet Union put nuclear mis-

siles into Cuba to deter an American invasion. It was a terrifying time, but neither US President John F. Kennedy nor the Soviet leaders used violent language. They stayed calm, and carefully backed away from the brink. So Kubrick’s fictional leaders had to stay sane too; only his generals and civilian strategic ‘experts’ were crazy. Anything else would have been too implausible even for a wild satire like ‘Strangelove’. Whereas now we live in different times. Trump may not understand what his own words mean, but he is threatening to attack North Korea if it makes any more threats to the United States. That’s certainly how it will be translated into Korean. And Pyongyang will assume that the US attack will be nuclear, since it would be even crazier to attack a nuclear-armed country like North Korea using only conventional weapons. Is this where the world finds itself at the moment? ‘Fraid so. And although a nuclear

war with North Korea at this point wouldn’t even muss America’s hair – the few North Korean ICBMs would probably go astray or be shot down before they reached the US – it could kill many millions of Koreans on both sides of the border. A million or so Japanese might die as well (that would depend on the fallout), and a few tens of thousands of US soldiers in western Pacific bases (from targeted strikes). Indeed, as the scale of the potential disaster comes home to North Korean strategists, you can see them start to play with the idea of a “limited nuclear war.” North Korean planners have announced that they are “carefully examining” a plan for a missile attack on the big US base on Guam. In that way they could “signal their resolve” in a crisis by only hitting one isolated American

military target. Their hope would be that such a limited attack would not unleash an all-out US nuclear counter-attack that would level North Korea. ‘Limited’ nuclear war typically becomes a favourite topic whenever strategists realise that using their cherished nuclear weapons any other way means unimaginable levels of death and destruction. It has never been credible, because it assumes that people will remain severely rational and unemotional while under attack by nuclear weapons. Thinking about limited nuclear war, while unrealistic, is evidence that the planners are starting to get really scared about an allout nuclear war, which is just what you want them to be. Nevertheless, we are entering a particularly dangerous phase of the process, not least because the

other two major nuclear powers in the world, China and Russia, both have land borders with North Korea. And neither of them loves or trusts the United States. What “process” are we talking about here? The process of coming to an accommodation that lets North Korea keep a nuclear deterrent, while reassuring it that it will never have to use those weapons. Because that’s what these North Korean missiles and nuclear warheads are about: deterring an American attack aimed at changing the regime. US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson briefly said that the US was not seeking to change the North Korean regime last week, although he was almost immediately contradicted by President Trump. In the long run, however, that is the unpalatable but acceptable way out of this crisis. In fact, there is no other way out.

A passion for rocks and clocks

Anything Is Possible

FRIENDS & NEIGHBOURS

&

Leah Blain Wes Peters has a lot of time on his hands. Well, to be more specific, he has a lot of clocks – about 800, all made by Peters from rock. No one is like another – each rock clock has its own unique shape and beauty. Peters’ penchant for rockwork began years ago as a hobby. “About 1950 I started cutting rocks – it was just a hobby,” says Wes. This hobby became a fun and important part of his family’s life as their vacations centered around rock collecting. But his interest in rocks started before that. “When I was a kid, I found some fool’s gold. I didn’t know what it was so I brought it home and my dad says, ‘It’s just called fool’s gold.’ It was yellow as could be – it was good enough for me.” Peters worked on the pipeline and long-distance trucking, but his real love was geology. He taught himself all about rocks through books, and was a charter member of the Thompson Valley

Rock Club. In 1972, Wes, wife Dorothy and their children moved to Salmon Arm. He made himself a saw to cut the rocks and got into making clocks and jewelry, selling them at craft fairs and markets. “I never started out with any idea of doing this,” he says smiling. Over the years, Peters’ has received a lot of orders for trophies, plaques and other special requests. As he points out the brilliant colors of the various rocks and clocks, Peters explains how he used chemicals to bring out the rocks’ natural beauty more brilliantly. In a spare room, besides the 50 or so clocks that are on the table

Wes Peters with some of the clocks he has crafted from pieces of rock. and shelves, he has boxes of various rocks and, for the most part, he remembers where he got each of them. “This one is from the Revelstoke area, this one is from Lillooet, Squilax, Savona, Monty Lake…,” he says as he picks up or points out various items. From under the table he pulls out a plastic

peanut butter jar. Inside there are minuscule, perfectly round rock pieces. These are the ‘timbits’ of the clocks, the pieces he cut to put the clock hand mechanism in. He has every single one he has ever cut. “I have four jars full – about 8,000,” he estimates. Rocks are fascinating he says as he pulls out

a few he has polished but not made into anything. “Some of them are just beautiful – pretty patterns. Mother Nature makes everything – you don’t have a human hand in it and it’s perfect.”

Lake a top stop for boaters We’re not number one, but Shuswap Lake remains one of B.C.’s top boating destinations. Over the summer, hundreds of recreational boaters across the province cast votes for their favourite boating locations. Ganges Harbour, Salt Spring Island, was voted as the top location, followed by Desolation Sound and then Shuswap Lake. In honour of Canada’s 150th birthday, Boating BC provided a list of 150 boating destinations across British Columbia. The list was narrowed to 10, and boaters voted their

top destination on social media. “Every location on our list is an amazing representation of what British Columbia has to offer in terms of recreational boating, but Ganges Harbour is a special place and top destination for many boaters. We are fortunate in British Columbia to have great boating destinations in every corner of the province,” says Don Prittie, President of Boating BC. Ganges Harbour, Salt Spring Island topped the pols with 24.2 per cent of the votes, while Shuswap Lake garnered 18.4 per cent.

Beating the summer heat with a cold one ShuSwap OutdOOrS Hank Shelley Ambling down that country road a few years back, many of us with silver in our hair, enjoyed good ol’ country music. Especially if you were from a farm or ranch. It was a natural fit. Why, there was Roy Acuff, Porter Wagner, Ray Price, Ronnie Milsap. Two of my favorite country artists are Ricky Skaggs and Tom T. Hall. Skaggs will be here for Roots and Blues. Tom’s Watermelon Wine and I Like Beer were instant hits. “Champagne costs too much, whiskey’s too rough, and vodka puts my mouth in gear. So this little refrain, will help me explain. As a matter of fact I like beer!” And yes, with this hot, dry weather, there has definitely been a good run on beer at the government outlets, brew pubs and cold beer and wine stores. Over time and, of

course, with amalgamation and government regulation, breweries got much larger, producing more brands. Tradition and location plays a large part in the type of brew one enjoys, as on Vancouver Island, Lucky was for the loggers, fishermen, miners and many households. While salmon fishing out of Tahsis a few seasons back, it wasn’t uncommon to have lineup of people waiting to pick up an eight-pack of Lucky for the evening get together! Going back to the 1970s, beer-making brew kits were the rage, and could be picked up at any large grocery store. About the same time, U-brew shops appeared, and it made it much easier to have a good batch of beer made. Recently, I visited a government outlet and sidled into the back to do a tally of the types and varieties of beer

a person can choose from. From the racks and stacks of beers on display, it almost boggles the mind. It’s almost difficult to choose a type or kind of beer to suit the palate from the large stack of brews available, other than the die hard beer drinkers who stick to their traditional Blue,

Budweiser, Sleemans or Canadian. On speaking to one of the cashiers, I asked what the average working man likes. She advised Old Milwaukee, Pabst Blue Ribbon, Old Style Pilsner and Lucky. Many old-timers were very upset when they took the pretty girls off the cans of Old Mil-

waukee, and e-mailed the brewery 15 times to complain. Business guys and gals prefer possibly better brewed-beers such as Budweiser, Sleemans, Canadian or Blue. Many folks too, also go for the light beers. Many small craft breweries in the past tried for a niche mar-

ket, hoping to expand if sales were good. Today you will find Hell’s Gate, and other smaller breweries still in the market, selling product at a lower price. Two that caught my eye, while there were Rolling Rock and Sneaky Weasel. Many other German or Dutch beers are now in the market.

Locally, to support our micro breweries we have Tree Brewing from Kelowna, Mt. Begbie in Revelstoke, Crannog Ales in Sorrento, the Barley Station in Salmon Arm and other brew houses near by. Anyway you enjoy it, there’s nothing finer, than enjoying a nice cool can, bottle or chilled glass of beer.

A Bighorn sheep near Chase notices that he’s under observation.

Stinky situation solved

Martha Wickett Salmon Arm Observer

High temperatures and garbage have been an unfortunate combination in Chase over the past week. When the village’s garbage truck broke down last Wednesday, Aug. 2, businesses and residences awaiting their weekly pickup were out of luck. The smell of forest fire smoke soon became the least of their olfactory worries. But the problem has since been solved. The truck was up and running as of Wednesday, Aug. 9. The issue, says Joni Heinrich, village administrator, was that a part on the relatively new truck “went kaput,” and it turned out to be a recall part. She says she believes it’s under warranty. The truck was towed to Kamloops and the part was ordered from the United States. Adding to the wait was the BC Day long weekend. The part finally arrived Tuesday afternoon, and the truck was repaired. However, that was too late for Tuesday residential pickup. But Wednesday morning, staff picked up the truck and it was

once again out and about. “It’s a very big issue when people don’t get

their garbage picked up,” Heinrich acknowledged, explaining that the truck was going to

do its regular Wednesday residential route as well as some of the Continued on A24

Backup options pondered Continued from A23 smaller Tuesday commercial pickups. “The truck driver said he was hoping to get some of the Tuesday residential done later, but I don’t know that that’s going to happen…,” she said Wednesday, noting the truck has to consider landfill hours. Regular pickup was going to continue throughout the week. Unfortunately for the Tuesday people, of which Heinrich is one, they might have had to wait until next week – or go to the landfill themselves. Heinrich said most people have been understanding, with some not

so much. One suggestion she’s heard is that the village buy another truck for backup. At a $300,000 price tag, she says, that’s not an option. However, council discussed the issue at its Tuesday, Aug. 8 council meeting. They pondered if an agreement could be set up with the City of Kamloops to borrow one of their trucks if the Chase truck is out of commission. Heinrich was quick to add that no research has been done yet on this idea to see if it’s feasible. Asked about contracting out, which one citizen had suggested online, she said the village’s union staff do

the work so that would have to be a negotiated plan. “We haven’t discussed it. We haven’t really even broached that issue at this point in time. It’s something we could look into, but again, I don’t want to get people alarmed that we’re going to bust the union or something like that, as that’s not the intent, of course.” She also noted that if the village did go down that road, it might not solve the problem given that the contractor’s truck could also break down. Council decided that staff could investigate what options are possible for backup garbage pickup and report back.

INFORMATION DESIGNED TO PROMOTE AND ENHANCE YOUR WELLBEING

There is more to intuition than magic Family chiropractic Dr. Warren Gage How many times have you been going about your normal day and out of the blue someone you are connected to pops into your head? Then within the next few moments, you either receive a text or a phone call from that very same person. Many mothers out there can sense that their child is in distress, despite the fact that they are in a different location. This extra awareness is

referred to as intuition and is often described through a variety of different ways. One way to explain intuition is that there seems to be an invisible connection between people with strong emotional bonds. While this may sound a bit too “new-age” for some, it actually is not that far fetched. Radio waves function in the very same way. All things resonate or vibrate at a

certain frequency, this is how you can change the “frequency” on a radio until it matches the frequency of the station you are trying to find. In biological systems, the nervous system works much the same way and acts as the receiver for information that is beyond our normal senses. All organisms oscillate and vibrate a certain frequency and if you quiet your mind and let your nervous system receive this vibration, you can feel the emotions of other. Emotions are simply “energy in motion” and we all have the ability to connect to this. If you

doubt it, the next time you walk into a room where someone that is super ticked off at you is located, see if you can feel their energy. I guarantee you will know it before they even speak. Another form of intuition comes from the heart. As science and technology advances, a number of studies done to measure the energy fields circling the body are being explored. These studies have shown that when a person is operating at a creative level of love, gratitude, or compassion, you radiate this energy beyond the body. It has also then

Stretch your grocery dollar (NC) Food is one of the largest consumer spending segments, so being a savvy grocery shopper is key to managing your budget. In addition to finding a grocery store with fair pricing and good value for money, it’s important for individuals and families to cultivate smart shopping habits in order to get the best bang for their buck. To help stretch your grocery dollars, here are five tips from frugalista Amrita Singh, the creative mind behind the lifestyle blog Pretty Frugal Living. 1. Pay attention to the before and after. Although this might sound like a daunting task, create a simple meal plan before you go to the grocery store. You don’t have to create it for the whole week; try doing this for just two days’ worth of breakfasts, lunches and dinners. For the rest of the week you can rely on mixing and matching leftovers. For the after part of your grocery trip,

make sure you take time to store your items properly so food stays fresh and usable for as long as possible. 2. Get Comfortable with basic math. Understanding unit pricing will help save you money. Calculate the cost for each item in a pack and then determine whether it makes sense to buy that one or if you would do better by choosing a smaller, larger or different brand. 3. Go easy on the frills. Make sure you have a plan and a list, and treat your grocery shopping like a job. Be budget savvy and be aware that stores that offer fancy displays, extravagant signage, entertainment and food sampling may charge more. Singh shops at No Frills because she knows she’s only paying for the quality and fresh food but not the extras you find in other grocery stores. 4. Channel your inner Julia Child. The best way to stretch your grocery

dollar is to learn how to master big batch recipes like lasagna, casseroles, chili and meatballs. The best big batch recipes are easy to assemble, easy to freeze and can be served in multiple ways. 5. Play to save. It really does pay to know how much stuff costs, espe-

cially items you buy on a regular basis. So drill average costs into your head. Pay attention to pricing, study the cost of things you use often, and arm yourself with wisdom. Also, be mindful of stores that offer a price match guarantee to save even more.

been shown that this radiating energy can then influence others around you. A fellow Chiropractor and author named Dr. Joe Dispenza has tested this in one of his seminars. In this quick study he placed heart monitors on 50 people in one part of the room where he was lecturing. He then had the remaining 700 attendees begin a meditation where they were instructed to open their hearts with elevated states of love, gratitude, joy, and appreciation. Once the 700 people could maintain that

state they were then instructed to direct that positive energy towards the 50 people in the room hooked up to the monitors. At that very same moment more than 50% of the people being monitored all showed heart coherence which is a calmed state where the heart rhythm orderly synchronizes with other systems in the body such as breathing and blood pressure. While this is not by any means a controlled scientific study, it did show there is a connection and influence that we have on

each other. While science still has a way to go to be able to fully explain intuition and these extra “connections” that we all have, everyone can start now to train the body to be a better listener. When you do, I know you will appreciate and benefit from this ability in many aspects of your life and relationships. Dr. Warren Gage is a family wellness Chiropractor who can be reached at Harbourfront Family Chiropractic at (250) 803-0224.

NAKAGAWA, AIKO (nee Ohashi) Aiko Nakagawa (nee Ohashi) was born on November 20, 1924. She passed away peacefully on August 1st,  2017 at the age of 92, in Salmon Arm.  She is predeceased by her loving husband Michael Masakazu,, her brothers Shigeo, Minoru, Jyoji, and Kiyoshi, her sistersin-law Hariye and Masaye.  She is survived by her younger brother Art (Mitzi) of Vernon, and her sister-inlaw Hanako of Vernon.  She lives in the hearts of her five children, Lloyd (Atsuko) Nakagawa of Salmon Arm, Gary (Azucena) Nakagawa of Richmond, Jeffrey (Anne) Nakagawa of Salmon Arm, Noreen (James) Tamaki of Burnaby, and Patricia West of Edmonton. She is also warmly remembered by grandchildren  Stephanie (Michael), Trisha ,Matthew, Vanessa, Allison (Oliver), Kimberly,  Cydney and Michael and great grandchildren Anniston and Niko.  Aiko was born in Mission, BC, to Jujiro and Toki Ohashi, on November 20, 1924. She was the only daughter amongst five sons and she always wanted to do as much as the boys. Her parents ran a successful poultry and fruit farm before the war until they were evacuated to Lillooet.  After the war, the family moved to Vernon, where she met her future husband Mike, and moved to Salmon Arm. Mom took great care to ensure that the family was never wanting.  She toiled tirelessly on our family’s strawberry fields, ensuring that we could produce enough fruit to enhance our lives. Everything Mom did was for the benefit of her children.  The family wishes to thank the staff of Piccadilly Care Center for the care and respect they showed our Mom, especially near the end of her life. In lieu of flowers, those wishing to do so may make a donation to the Shuswap Hospital Foundation or a charity of your choice.

ESSEX, JANE HELEN Sept. 15, 1940 – July 30, 2017 Jane Helen Essex [nee Watt] 76 born in High River, AB passed away peacefully in her sleep at SLGH on July 30 with her loving husband of 56 years Ron at her side. Jane is also survived by son Christopher in North Vancouver and daughter Karen in Toronto as well as brother Frank Watt in Salmon Arm. Jane’s wages supported Ron while he completed his training in Education, and early career in Powell River and Richmond, and it was only in Salmon Arm with both children in school that she began her own post-secondary education to become a certified Teacher-onCall working for 20 years in every subject area imaginable to retire with Ron in 1998. Two teachers in one family makes for a busy life, along with music lessons for the children, both of whom played in the Okanagan Symphony Orchestra while still in high school. The family is deeply indebted to the staff of SLGH, particularly the ER nurses, the Chemo nurses, and Ambulatory wound-care nurses, for their always excellent and compassionate care of Jane, and particularly Dr. Malinowski, a dedicated physician and long-time family friend. There will be no service by request. Donations in Jane’s name may be made to the Shuswap Hospital Foundation, Box 265, Salmon Arm, BC, V1E 4N3, shuswaphospitalfoundation.org.

GARREN, LANCE My beloved Lance Garren died peacefully, at Bastion Place on Friday July 21st at 9 a.m. aged 82 years.   He is now at rest and at peace. ‘The strife is o’er, the battle won.’ He was born in Freie und Hansestadt Hamburg, Germany in 1935 as Henning Wehrs. War time memories haunted him and he spoke often of the need for people to find ways to be at peace. As a youth, he excelled in Kayak racing and whitewater sports to Olympic levels and had many good stories to tell. In 1970, he came to work in Vancouver, Canada for about 3 months and stayed for the rest of his life. He became a proud Canadian citizen and loved this country very much. Though he struggled all his life with a childhood speech problem, he learned to speak English very well.  In Canada, he  worked for others in the Boating business, before trying his own business. On August 3rd 1974 he married Brenda Leeson and we enjoyed almost 43 years together. He  came to Salmon Arm in 1975 and began the expansion and development of  the former Gorse Marina. An unfortunate loss of financing ended this dream and he was forced to try another line of work again,  this time using his ship building skills to start a fiberglass boat repairing business more suited to the needs of the Shuswap. He continued with this until he stopped work. He also fiberglassed sundecks, Peaks Motel Revelstoke outdoor stairs and decks, Halcyon Hot Springs lower pool. Little children loved Lance, while adults were often kept off guard by his dry sense of humour and outspoken manner, tricks he learned to offset his speech difficulties and which he kept using until the end. He could be a big tease too. He was Chamber of Commerce President for the South Shuswap, Church Warden for St John the Evangelist Church, and held positions in the Cursillo Movement too.  Special thanks  go to  Family Doctor Stacey Kirkman and the Bastion Place staff who cared for him through thick and thin with patience and compassion, Serena, dietician, who aimed to bring him some joy in his last weeks, Andover Terrace Retirement Resort Staff and Residents who supported Brenda over the last long months. Lance was predeceased by his parents Adolf and Klara Wehrs, older brother Dean (Juergen). Sisters Ingeborg (Manfred, nephews  Stephen and Marc) and Greta (Loren), wife Brenda, brother-in-law Geoffrey (Hazel, Georgina and Michael, U.K.) are left to mourn. A funeral Service will be held on Tuesday August 15th, at 2 p.m. at St John the Evangelist Anglican Church, 170 Shuswap St. SE, Salmon Arm. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations in Lance’s name may be made to Bastion Place, Box 1990, Salmon Arm, B.C. V1E 4P9 Email condolences and shared memories of Lance may be made through his obituary at www.bowersfuneralservice.com
