A castle to remember



Shuswap Hospice Society board member Marc Dansereau works on the top level of a multi-tiered sandcastle he’s constructing at Marine Park in Salmon Arm on Monday, Aug. 14. The project is being sculpted by the Blind Bay resident to raise awareness of, and funds for, the hospice society. Dansereau began building his elaborate sand sculptures in honour of his daughter Bernadette, who died at age 6 of an inoperable cancer. The Marine Park castle will be his largest project yet. The castle will require 10 yards of sand and will weigh approximately 28,000 lbs when complete. The finished castle will be treated with a sealant, and will remain on display in the park through September.

Home building permits top predictions

City sees upswing in construction of single-family dwellings. Martha Wickett Salmon Arm Observer

Seventy-three building permits for single-family houses in seven months. That figure had Salmon Arm Council talking on Monday. The city’s monthly building department report showed 17 single family building permits issued in July this year, up over nine in July 2016. That brought the total number of single-family homes to date this year to 73, nearly dou-

ble 2016’s 39 for the same period. Coun. Chad Eliason asked if this is a record year, but it isn’t quite. In 2007, there were 99 single-family dwelling permits as of July 31. However, city staff say this year all the building permits are for homeowner housing, while in 2007 several were for spec homes, many of which took a long time to sell after the market fell in 2008. Coun. Kevin Flynn agreed he hasn’t seen anything like

this since 2006 or 2007. “That’s a lot of houses.” Eliason said that along with new single-family dwellings, lots of renovations are going on. He remembered how, in ’06 and ’07, builders were coming to council saying there weren’t enough lots for new homes. So council went through the official community plan and identified some areas where the city’s urban containment boundary could be expanded, such as the

Upper Lakeshore area. He pointed to many benefits of the boom, such as building permit revenue, income for the building trades and more. “These are good for Salmon Arm economically. It’s a big bang for our buck, a big multiplier…” He gave kudos to staff for all their extra work. Flynn, too, acknowledged staff’s work. “Those numbers are staggering really,” he said. Coun. Ken Jamieson said

this shows Salmon Arm is a desirable place to live. He added that city hall seems to be a pretty friendly place to do business, noting lots of city halls don’ t have such a good reputation. Eliason said he’s pleased to see Salmon Arm is getting a mix of the whole spectrum of housing types. Mayor Nancy Cooper said she was talking to realtors on the weekend. “It is an exciting time for Salmon Arm and a time of high growth.”

Forecast bright for festival Smoke, fire situation cut into ticket pre-sales.

Tracy Hughes Salmon Arm Observer

With the weather forecast looking sunny and promising, organizers of the Roots & Blues Festival are hopeful it will drive gate tickets sales for this year’s festival to new heights. Smoke has been a bit of a stumbling block for this year’s 25th annual event. “Back in June our ticket pre-sales were going so well, we thought we could be on target for record-breaking sales, but the smoke, and the message that B.C. was on fire in early July, it did curtail the mo-

Celeb rat




mentum we had,” says Gonella. “We are hoping to really get the message out there that the gates are going to be open and we are still a great place to be. The smoke, the weather have been so variable, but that is out of our control. That’s what you have to accept when you have an outdoor festival,” he adds. With the smoke affecting much of the province, Gonella says they are also still seeing plenty of interested in people from the Lower Mainland coming up for a weekend. “People within the province have a better

grasp of the distances and that we are not on fire in the Shuswap directly.” The extreme fire hazard will be emphasized to patrons, with signage warning of the tinder dry conditions. There are going to be designated smoking areas and there will be warnings in the campgrounds to be extra cautious with any lit items. Once again, patron comfort is a high priority, with additional shade spaces being added to the site, along with the now-iconic, hanging blue jeans at the Blues Stage. Audience members

should be prepared for enforcement of some festival rules including a provision for low, festival chairs in certain areas, with the higher height chairs being required to sit further back from the stage. “We want to try and deliver a good viewing experience as much as possible, so this means keeping to the rules,” says Gonella. There will also be new offerings for beverages, including the addition of craft beer products from B.C. like Red Truck, BC Brewing Co. and Stanley Park, as well as wine tasting and sampling of B.C. wine products.

Waterpark floated for Sicamous

Bounce the Shu is proposing a water park for Sicamous similar to the one pictured. rently exists a draft consultant report for improvements. He also noted district operations manager Joe McCulloch, who was not present at the meeting, already had a recreation concept designed for Beach Park – identified in the proposed recreation capital budget for 2017 as a $150,000 floating recreation area. “Maybe we integrate this with the proposal and see if there’s a win-win, because I do concur with Coun. Mallmes, there’s a challenge with the upland property owners,” said Parliament. Reid said if the commercial waterpark were to go in the public swim area, the district’s licence of occupation for the waterfront would change, and the district would be required to enter a lease agreement. However, Reid

also said he’d spoken with municipal staff in Kelowna and Penticton, where similar parks are operated, and that the positive feedback was “unreal.” Council remained supportive of Bounce the Shu’s proposal, and agreed to try to find a way to make it work.

Sicamous council sees a proposed waterpark as a good fit for the community, and will now look at ways to make it fit. During its Aug. 9 regular meeting, council received a presentation from Bounce the Shu’s Tyler Bartley, who was seeking the district’s support for setting up a new waterpark on Shuswap Lake. The Bounce the Shu concept, Bartley explained, revolves around a modular, 70 metre by 70 metre, obstacle course-styled inflatable waterpark. He explained the model Bounce the Shu is looking at would have a capacity of 180 people, with a separate area for children ages seven and under. It would be a privately owned and operated capital venture. While there are similar parks in the Okanagan, Bartley emphasized this would be the first for the Shuswap. “We have had discussions with CSRD (Columbia Shuswap Regional District) on other suitable locations in Blind Bay and Sunnybrae,” said Bartley. “We feel as an asset to the community and as a new tourist attraction, as well as being our head office

location, a central location in Sicamous’ public beach is where we want out first and main location,” said Bartley. Coun. Jeff Mallmes called the park a great concept, but challenged Bartley on the two locations Bounce the Shu was looking at for the park, both being adjacent to Silver Sands. While Bartley said the locations had been “thoroughly reviewed” with Transport Canada and Fisheries and Oceans Canada, Mallmes said he would also need permission from upland owners at Silver Sands. “Both of your locations are not public land, they’re private property, and usually the upland owners are the ones you apply for… I can’t see them giving you support,” said Mallmes. “If you were trying to do this at the Beach Park, which the district has upland ownership of, you might have a chance.” With discussion turning to Beach Park, Bartley said the park could be shrunk to fit in the public swim area. Town manager Evan Parliament said it might be possible to integrate the waterpark into a master plan for Beach Park, explaining there cur-

Communities hit the greens Fundraiser for Sicamous recreation facilities. Lachlan Labere Salmon Arm Observer

Re p r e s e n t at i v e s of three communities came together in support of one at the Splendermous Golf Tournament. The inaugural event, held at Hyde Mountain Golf Course on Friday morning, Aug. 11, saw the Splatsin, the City of Enderby and the District of Sicamous unite under the Splendermous banner to raise money for new multi-use public recreation facilities in Sicamous. Mayor Terry Rysz said the district received $50,000 in grant money to update the existing tennis court near Eagle River Secondary. “And then we (council) started talking about it and thought, well, if we can raise more money, we might be able to put together something more palatable for the whole community,” said Rysz. Council’s attention then turned to Finlayson Park, and the idea of adding more recreational opportunities in space available there. A District of Sicamous handout from the golf tournament states the vision is to build a multi-use, multi-generational outdoor recreation

facility that includes a tennis court, two pickleball courts an outdoor hockey rink. Rysz said the district is hoping to raise another $200,000 for the facilities. Asked if the district will seek financial support from the Columbia Shuswap Regional District (CSRD), Rysz said no, that the concept is still in preliminary stages. “We have a purpose and we have a vision and then, at a later date, if we feel we need to get some support from the CSRD, we’ll certainly be going to the table with that as well,” said Rysz. The mayor suggested that if the district can raise enough money, it may look at building an indoor facility. Asked if it was usual for local governments to fundraiser for infrastructure, Rysz said he didn’t know. “I think for us, the more money we can raise on an alternative basis, rather than having to go to the taxpayer and say we want you to fork out more, I mean, it just shows incentive… and it could be a very good project,” said Rysz. Proceeds from the next event under the Splendermous banner will go towards either the Splatsin or the City of Enderby.

Family wants stolen photos returned A family is making a plea for the return of photos of their deceased son. On Aug. 8, the RCMP investigated a theft from vehicle which occurred a week before, in the 3900 block of 14th Street in Vernon. Taken were two laptops and external hard drives, which contained photos of Patrick Petersen, who died in 2015 of cancer. “All of this has opened up wounds that will never really heal and has left us feeling the pain all over again,” said Dwayne Petersen, father of the 26-yearold Patrick. “I am simply making a plea to all, to anyone who may know or hear anything or know

about the computers and hard drives. I beg that they please return what little a father has left other than a broken heart.” The vehicle broken into was a black 2010 GMC Sierra pickup truck with Alberta plate YKV 627. Taken was a grey laptop bag containing a silver, 17inch HP touchscreen laptop, a black, 13-inch Toshiba laptop and two external hard drives, one with two terabytes of storage and the other with four terabytes. The photos capture Patrick’s life and everything he tried to do before he was confined to the hospital. “Patrick was able to marry his girlfriend and was able to travel with me to see his lifelong favourite football team,

the Denver Broncos, play and he saw his favourite player, Payton Manning,” said Dwayne. “This would be the last time Patrick and I shared father and son time together, away from home.” The photos also reflect his last few days in the hospital undergoing chemotherapy, dialysis and surgeries. Anyone wishing to return these items or who may have information is asked to contact the Vernon RCMP at 250-545-7171 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-2228477. “It is one of those cases where the return of these items is all we hope to achieve, with a no questions asked,” said Cpl. Dan Moskaluk, with the RCMP.

Racism festers in Canada

How can it be that in 2017 a group of racist bigots are splashed on every TV screen, Facebook page and newspaper? How can these people still exist? It’s because we allow it. Every time we laugh off an older family member’s racist comments as, “oh, they’re old, they don’t know better;” every time we scoff, but don’t call out someone’s evil and hateful tirade online; we are complicit every time we think “that doesn’t happen here.” While Canadians like to pretend we are so much better than our counterparts south of the border, our history and current problems prove we are not. News organizations across the country, including many in the Okanagan, were forced to turn off online commentary for stories involving First Nation residents, rainbow crosswalks and Syrian refugees. Why, you ask? Because the comments were horrific. Canadians sat down and wrote violent and hate-filled words, cloaked in the anonymity of the Internet. They may not be going to the same pathetic lengths that Americans who lit tiki torches and marched through the streets of Charlottesville did. They may not be driving their cars into crowds and murdering innocent people, but the language and messaging is along the same lines. Worse yet, there are those among us who would go that far. Racism and bigotry exists in Canada and we need to admit it is still a major problem. It is not OK. -Kelowna Capital News

An appetite for GM salmon labelling the GReAt outdooRs James Murray Well, they’ve gone and done it. Last week, in a statement from Health Canada, it was announced genetically modified salmon is now be available for sale in Canadian stores. The genetically modified (GM) product, known as AquaAdvantage salmon (produced by the U.S.based biotechnology company AquaBounty) was approved for sale back in May of 2016. The GM salmon are able to grow faster and thereby reach market size sooner than conventionally farmed salmon. The modification process involves introducing growth hormones from chinook salmon into Atlantic salmon, along with other genetic material from a species called the ocean pout (an eel-like fish species) to produce the genetically

modified salmon. In order to determine whether GM salmon could be sold in Canada as food, Health Canada says scientists conducted a series of scientific assessments to ensure it is safe for consumption – whether it can be toxic or cause allergic reactions, still has all its nutritional value and therefore does not differ from other salmon available on the market. In addition, Health Canada also concluded AquAdvantage salmon would have no impact on allergies, and that there are no differences in the nutritional value of the AquAdvantage salmon compared to other farmed salmon available for consumption. One question that remains unanswered was what the genetic impact would be on wild fish if such genetically modified fish were ever to

enter the wild fish populations. Health Canada officials also said that after four years of testing, it found the modified salmon to be as safe and nutritious as conventional salmon, and that no special labelling would be required to sell it. It would seem that approximately five tonnes of GM salmon has already been sold in Canadian stores. Predictably, organizations ranging from consumer rights groups to environmentalists are calling for mandatory labelling of GM foods in Canada. A number of supermarket chains, including Costco, have announced they will not stock genetically modified salmon while others are welcoming the news, saying it as a breakthrough for a growing industry. AquaBounty says the company has not decided yet whether it will voluntarily label the fish to point out that it has been modified. NDP health critic Don Davies said he thinks Canadians deserve to know

what they’re eating. “If it is safe… then labelling should not be an issue.” Canada is the fourth-largest producer of farmed salmon in the world and the farmed salmon industry provides more than 10,000 jobs, mostly in British Columbia and the Atlantic provinces. Federal Agriculture Minister Lawrence MacAulay has said that a special committee will examine issues surrounding genetically modified food and make recommendations later this year. I’m not sure what to believe when it comes to GM salmon or farmed fish or anything else when it comes to what is safe to eat and what isn’t. What I do know is that when I go shopping for groceries, I would like to be able to make a properly informed decision. Labelling on food is not always as clear as one might think, but no labelling, well, that is another thing altogether. Surely as consumers we have a right to know what we are eating.

Water fun may come at a cost In plaIn vIeW Lachlan Labere I can just imagine the excitement my son would feel after spotting from the Bruhn Bridge a large, bright inflatable obstacle course floating in the water at Beach Park. I think Sicamous council imagined something similar when Bounce the Shu’s Tyler Bartley pitched a commercial inflatable water park for two possible locations in Shuswap Lake off the shores of Silver Sands. Coun. Malcolm Makeyev suggested the waterpark could be better than a billboard. Of course it would, especially with kids for whom the promise of such water play would spark immediate cries of, “Can we stop! Please, please, please!”

Bartley, too, emphasized the appeal of having the water park visible from the bridge, adding families from throughout the Shuswap would be drawn to Sicamous to make a day of the attraction. From his presentation to council, Bartley appears to be covering his bases, from plans for public safety to the pursuit of necessary government approvals. The one thing he didn’t have, however, was approval from residents of Silver Sands. Coun. Jeff Mallmes was skeptical the proposed locations would float with them. “If you were trying to do this at the Beach Park, which the district has upland ownership of, you might


have a chance… the first question someone should ask, be it Crown or whatever, is if you have the upland owners’ permission for this,” said Mallmes. Conversation then shifted to the prospect of the waterpark at Beach Park. Bartley said the 70metre by 70-metre modular park could easily be made to fit into the public swim area. Mallmes was more optimistic about this option, and district town manager Evan Parliament suggested the district could look at integrating the concept with the district’s master plan for Beach Park. Council, in general, is eager to work with Bartley and not see Bounce the Shu bounce to another location in the Shuswap. This brings me back to my son in the car, asking me to stop. Of

course, my first challenge is finding parking. On most days it’s not difficult to find parking in the lot off Silver Sands Road. Of course, signage would be needed making it clear where this parking lot is, and that people should be using it. Or else Sicamous will see it’s existing summer parking problems worsen. Once parked, we have to pay the cost of waterpark admission – a (proposed) day rate of $25 for ages 7 to 17, as well as supervising adults, or $15 an hour for adults. I suppose we might do this as a one off; I certainly couldn’t afford to make it routine. And honestly, my son is already pretty happy visiting the public swim area as it currently is – public and free. Which brings me to a greater cost – giving up part of the last remaining public beach/water-

It will take some time for me to settle into my new home, but once I am settled, I will be a great companion as I enjoy attention from people. I have been outdoors before so I could suit an indoor/outdoor home once I am settled.

front Sicamous has to offer in the summer to a commercial enterprise. For years, people have expressed complaints and misgivings over the loss of public access to waterfront with the condo boom and other developments. Perhaps the public might want a say in whether or not it’s willing to see a portion of the swim area handed over to private interest? Hopefully, council and Bartley will be able to find a publicly acceptable win-win solution that will keep Bounce the Shu anchored in Sicamous.

South Shuswap Pile up on Shuswap Lake

Tracy Hughes Salmon Arm Observer

A couple from Calgary are still recovering after a bizarre boat crash Aug. 8 on Shuswap Lake saw another boat land on top of their speedboat. “We were out in the evening, and there was just this brief second when we saw the other boat before it came up and over us,” says Ryan Fitzpatrick. “We are lucky to be alive. It was quite a shock. I think we are still in shock this many days later.” A report from the Chase RCMP states that at 10:17 p.m., Chase RCMP officers responded to a call of a collision involving two vessels on Shuswap Lake, near Copper Island. It was reported that one pleasure craft struck the rear of another that was stationary at the time. A 41-year-old woman in the stationary craft suffered injuries as a result of the collision, states the RCMP press release. Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue (RCMSAR), based in Sicamous, was called out to assist with the rescue; however, other boaters were able to complete the nighttime rescue, so RCMSAR was not required. While Fitzpatrick sustained minor injuries, his wife was taken to hospital and is now recovering with bed rest at the couple’s home in Calgary. There were two men in the other speed-

The white speedboat, owned by a couple from Calgary, sits at the dock with another speedboat resting on top of it after a collision that took place on Shuswap Lake at 10:17 p.m. on Aug. 8 near Copper Island. The woman passenger in the white boat was injured and taken to hospital. boat at the time of the crash. Police did not report injuries to either of those men. “We feel lucky to be alive. The only reason is both of us were in the front. And it is unusual for us not to have passengers, to be out alone, but fortunately my daughter, who is six months pregnant, ended up leaving a day early. Otherwise she would have been out on the boat with us. Anyone in the back…, well, the other boat would have hit right on top of them.” Fitzpatrick says they had the appropriate lights on their boat at the time of the collision and were following boating regulations. He says they have concerns about how police are handling the situation. They have made a complaint with the Chase detachment about officer conduct

and a lack of screening of the boat’s operator for alcohol or drug use. “We did not see them use any type of screening device and from what I understand there was no breathalyzer either. They were released at the scene, I am pretty upset at the way it was handled,” says Fitzpatrick. “They (the men in the other boat) were laughing as we were trying to get the boats detangled. It may seem funny to them, but it sure isn’t funny to us.” In their press release, the RCMP say they continue to investigate the collision, including whether alcohol played a part in the incident. In an additional statement provided to the Observer, Staff Sgt. Gary Heebner of the Chase detachment says police could recommend charges in any case where the evidence meets the standard

for charge approval by Crown Counsel. Another option is for a ticket to be issued a under a provincial or Transport Canada violations. He said an RCMP corporal met with the couple at the detachment to discuss their case, but could not comment on it directly. “I can’t speak to this case specifically as it is still under investigation, however, in general, breath testing, whether it be roadside with the handheld instrument, or at the detachment using the Intoximeter, requires some form of grounds to make a demand and those grounds are observed by the investigator at the scene,” says Heebner. “In all collisions, vehicle or vessel, one of our primary concerns is whether the operator had conContinued on A9

sumed alcohol, and if so, how much. The investigator may do a number of things to determine whether there are grounds for a breath demand, such as check for motor coordination, slurred speech, bloodshot eyes, smell of liquor on the breath, and one-on-one interviews...

Also, the observations of the investigator at the scene may be enough evidence to recommend a charge of impaired operation, without the use of an instrument. The primary investigator of this incident has a great deal of experience in alcohol-related driving cases and her work is supervised by the Operations

NCO at the detachment.” The crash bears some similarities to another fatal boat crash between a speedboat and a houseboat in 2010. Leon Reinbrecht was found guilty of criminal negligence causing the death of houseboat operator Ken Brown. His case is under appeal.

Anything Is Possible

Richard Rolke Black Press

Residents are expressing concerns about Canada’s banking ssystem. Mel Arnold, North Okanagan-Shuswap MP, held a town hall forum in Vernon Wednesday to discuss changes to federal regulations governing mortgages, taxes and credit unions. “The input we received will help us in our work in Ottawa as we stand up

against these regulations and tax grabs that hurt Canadians,” he said. The Liberal govern-

ment has introduced new mortgage regulations and town hall attendees described how these changes have made mortgage qualification more difficult for first-time homebuyers. “Trudeau’s new mortgage regulations have failed to deliver the intended effect in the Toronto and Vancouver housing markets while pushing home ownership out of reach for many Canadians,” said Arnold.

Salmon Arm lawyer promoted to judge A lawyer from Salmon Arm has taken a big step up the judicial ladder. Mariane Armstrong, who serves as administrative Crown counsel for Salmon Arm, has just been named as a provincial court judge. She will be assigned to Kamloops in the Interior Region and begins her duties on Sept. 6. Armstrong received an LLB from Dalhou-

sie University. She has worked as Crown counsel for the Criminal Justice Branch in Salmon Arm and Vernon from 1989 to 2005 and from 2006 to the present. Two other judges were appointed, one to sit in Penticton and the other for Kelowna. Two other judges received senior judge re-appointments for one-year terms and will hear cases from around B.C.

Your Health &



the newest Gmo Food - part 1 Family chiropractic Dr. Warren Gage I always follow a number of websites that keep tabs on the big agriculture companies like Monsanto and Dow. I like to know what these companies are up to because they play such a large role in the health of literally billions of people in the world and if you have been following my articles for any time, you will know I’m definitely not one of their fans. Once again these companies have caught my attention with probably the most frightening product to date. Reports are showing they recently

quietly received approval by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for a new GMO technology called RNA interference technology. Let me explain why this new technology is so dangerous. Everyone has some understanding that DNA is the part of every living cell that holds the information on how cells and organism grow and function. RNA’s role is to help DNA make proteins (the structures of the body), but it also has recently been found to carry out biochemical reactions and most im-

portantly, they have been found to have control of complex cell functions. In other words, they control how cells behave and help make sure cells don’t misbehave like forming cancer cells etc. The newest research has even discovered that there are special RNA molecules in much of the food we eat called “non-coding small RNA”, whose job is to inhibit gene expression. While that is a lot of technical jargon, basically non-coding small RNA are designed to silence certain genes, or turn them off. That discovery alone is massive when it comes to health and wellness because what this means is that the food we eat controls how our genes function and express themselves.

The old saying “you are what you eat” comes to mind because food dictates the health of the body through directly controlling your genes. The other significance of this discovery is that it gives us an even greater idea of how inter-connected every cell, plant and animal is on the planet when non-coding small RNA found in a vegetable can dictate how human genes function in a body. The take-away message from this week’s article is how truly important these non-coding small RNA are in regards to health and wellness. They control how your body develops, functions, grows and uses the food that is consumed. This week’s article hopefully reminds everyone of

how complex our world is around us. Every organism is connected to every other organism in a way with which humankind should not be messing around. It’s why I’m on my soapbox about growing an organic garden and feeding your family as much organic as possible . Mother Nature is intelligent, she doesn’t need science interfering. Our chemical laden GMO food is creating an unhealthy society. It’s not a coincidence that Cancer and other autonomic nervous system disease is on the rise. Remember, you are what you eat........

is important for them to wear their glasses. This may need to be repeated many times until it becomes a habit. Try not to get discouraged. Sunglasses are a great way to help a young child adjust to a new pair of prescription glasses. Introducing sunglasses to your child at a young age is an excellent opportunity to get a child accustomed to wearing

glasses. Also, it is a great way to protect their eyes from UV rays. Did you know that UV damage is cumulative, and almost 100% of UV damage to your eyes is done before the age of 18? If you notice, after several days, that your child is still resisting wearing their new glasses, ask them why they won’t wear them. It’s important to listen and take

your child seriously. If they say their glasses are hurting their eyes or their vision isn’t sharp bring them back to your Optometrist office and an Optical Assistant will assess the concerns of your child. It could be as simple as a minor adjustment which will make all the difference in the world. Once your child notices that they can see every-

thing clearly with their glasses you will notice less resistance to wearing them. Give your child positive reinforcement. If they put their glasses on without being asked, praise them. Little rewards go a long way too! Parents, give yourself a pat on the back, you are doing a great job! Submitted by Shuswap Optometric, Salmon Arm

Employers invited to promote fair BusinEss spotlight Leah Blain Local merchants are asked to challenge their employees to enter individually or as a team in this year’s Salmon Arm Fair. Celebrate the fair’s 120 anniversary and showcase your creative talents by entering a lego display of 120 pieces or less. Or decorate a mason jar to honour Canada’s 150 birthday. Fair administrator Ronnalee McMahon suggests business owners could award special prizes to employees with the most exhibits. Registration fees for the 120th and 150th exhibitors are waived. Another ideas for those who know all about bagged lunches - enter the special “balanced brown bag work lunch” class. For the balanced brown bag work lunch, see division A2, class 71 for further details. (This division was added later and isn’t in the printed books). The fair book is available on line at http:// www.salmonarmfair. com/safclasses.html

Marketplace Mall

Fifteen years ago Terry Barker built Marketplace Mall in Blind Bay. A couple of weeks ago he sold it to a family, a father and two sons, from Vancouver. “It’s been great and the tenants have been great, and it’s a great asset to the area,” says Barker. “I wish the new guys all the best. I’m sure they’ll be good.” Marketplace Mall, with its fun country-style look, has 21 units.

Grand upgrade

The Salmar Grand Theatre is getting a bit of a makeover. “We’ve planned to redo the back of the building by the parking lot. We’re completely making it with new exits, lights, and glass doors. It’s going to be a really nice feature,” says Salmar general manager Daila Duford. “We’re going to have a wheelchair

ramp so people can exit through the back and make the crowd flow easier.” After that is completed, the next project is the lobby expansion, and the final phase of the three phase upgrade is the concession, which will also be expanded. “The covered walkway will become part of the lobby so there will be more room and it won’t be so clogged up.” The timeline for all three projects is one year. “We are super excited. This building has been here for 20 years and it needs some freshening up.”

Carina was one of the gold medal winners with the Salmon Arm Bocce Team at the 2017 SOBC Summer Games in early July. She enjoyed it all — the bus ride, all the people, being part of a team, learning about competition, meeting new friends, the awards, the dance and having friends and relatives come to watch. When she found out they had won the Gold, she was very emotional with tears of happiness in her eyes. Her next highlight this summer is a week at camp.

The importance of avoiding the summer slide In 2012, statistics showed that 65 per cent of fourth graders read at or below the basic level. This demonstrates the importance of making sure that your children stay on top of their literacy skills all year round. It is especially critical over the summer when they have no formal instruction and are at risk of losing the skills they learned throughout the year. Whether it is picture books, novels, newspapers, comic books or online reading materiel it is important to keep exercising your reading skills over the summer. You can even turn down the volume and turn on the subtitles when your children are watching TV. Research shows that children can lose up to three months of reading progress if they don’t read during summer break. This loss of academic gains made over the rest of the year is referred to as the summer slide. In addition, children from low-income families are more at risk of falling far behind. The loss of reading

gain this summer. Having access to books is an important factor in stopping the summer slide. Around the world, having 500 or more books at home can send a child on average 3.2 years further in their education. One of the best ways

to get books into the home is to go to the library! Also, get in the habit of bringing books everywhere you go. As we near the final weeks of summer, don’t think it is too late to start reading. After all, as author

Alan Bennett says, “a book is a device to ignite the imagination.” So what better reason to curl up with a good books this summer? -Submitted by Darcy Calkins, Literacy Alliance of the Shuswap Society. Facebook Special Olympics BC Salmon Arm Twitter @sobcsociety

Electric bike opens up cycling opportunities HEALTHY BITES Serena Caner If you see someone biking up a big hill with a big grin on her face, it’s me. And it is because I just purchased an electric bike. Cycling in Salmon Arm can be daunting. Park Hill Road, Okanagan, Broadview; wherever you want to go, there is a major hill. Even if you muster the energy, you arrive to your destination late and dripping with sweat. Then add a heavy bag, thirty degrees heat and a little smoke, and cycling becomes quite uncomfortable. Electric bikes take many of the barriers out of cycling. Running late? Throw on the electric assist and go faster. Big Hill? The assist essentially makes biking up hills the same effort as cycling flat. Want a workout? Turn off the assist. Other reasons to buy an electric bike: Health Benefits:

meeting your exercise guidelines of at least 30 minutes per day. Less stress of finding a parking spot or having to parallel park your car. Start your day feeling energized. Environment: minimize car use. Burn calories rather than fossil fuels Economy: while e-bikes are an expensive initial purchase, you will instantly start saving money on gas

or bus fare. If you have two vehicles, you may be able to go down to one, or change your car insurance to “recreational use”. Earn yummy food: when you exercise, it tends to improve your appetite, making food taste better. Plus, you require extra fuel, especially carbohydrates, to do the work. Increase productivity: my experience is that exercising in the morning is more effective than coffee at “getting your day going”. Or better yet, bike into a coffee shop and enjoy both. Have fun! Electric

bikes make you feel faster and fitter, like swimming with flippers. Throw on a tagalong, and you can tow your kids too! Electric bikes have the potential to make commuting by bicycle a possibility for many people, a time efficient way of getting your daily physical activity and preventing chronic disease. If you already have a bike, you can also get systems to retrofit your own bike. Visit your local bike store and give it a try! -Serena Caner is a registered dietitian who works at Shuswap Lake General Hospital.

Enderby park makes a splash Richard Rolke Morning Star Staff

There’s some big smiles in Enderby as a cool amenity has been revealed. The new spray park at Barnes Park was officially opened Saturday. “It’s gone over really well,” said Mayor Greg McCune of the community response. The new feature replaces the old spray park, which was closed a few years ago because of safety concerns. “A lot of time, volunteering and fundraising got us here. This truly was a community effort,” said Becky Shuert, with the spray park for Enderby committee. All of the necessary infrastructure for the park was installed and there are two water features.

The budget was $264,000. However, the committee isn’t satisfied with just this and plans are moving ahead for phase two. “We have a target of $75,000 for phase two funding. We want to achieve this by spring 2018 so we can order the features and have them installed for next summer,” said Shuert. “We are ready to give this to our kids — a fun, free play experience that will get them away from the television and iPads, and outdoors making great memories with their family and friends. We’ll happily take any donation to finish this amazing spray park.” For more, go to www. sprayparkforenderby or donate at Enderby Financial.

All about that fishin’ boat ShuSwAp OutdOOrS

It’s not likely that many anglers of today who own a good aluminum trolling boat, or a punt for fly fishing, can recall ever stepping into a spruceplanked rig, seams gummed up with tar and oakum. Oakum is comprised of soft fibre material, placed into the seams of old sailing ships and cast iron plumbing joints. But back in the day, as the saying goes, many of us fishers with silver or grey hair, can recall rowing, or putting out with that old 3-hp Johnson or Evinrude on a Interior lake, on a Proctor-built wooden craft caulked with tar, to get that evening raise, as travelling sedge popped to the surface of a still lake. The Proctor family lived on the South Mabel Lake Road past Shuswap Falls. Duke went off to war and was highly decorated. Another brother ran a small sawmill, powered by a Pelton wheel in the nearby stream, flowing down from the Silver Hills to the east. It was here he selected the best spruce logs, then sawed them into one-inch planks to form his boats in the large workshop. Many a brisk November morning, each season, while walking down that stream counting spawning coho, I would stop to reminisce, seeing the stacked boards, the still shop a quiet place, silver birches swaying in the wind – knowing it was a bygone era. Founding owners from 40 years ago, Stan Stadnyk up at Pinaus Lake, Oyama Lake and Dee Lake, had Proctor-built boats. We had two at Postill Lake and had gone to fibreglas boats by then. Many South Cari-

boo lake resorts used that old standby, Proctor spruce-built boats. Harry Marriot, an Englishman who came up to the Cariboo via Ashcroft by train in the early years, had met Andy Stobie after breakfast in the Ashcroft Hotel. Andy was managing the famous Gang Ranch at the time, until his death in 1921. It took three full days by a heavy horse team, loaded with supplies, to reach the ranch. Harry did a good job dealing with the ranch’s 3,000 head of Hereford’s, and was then offered the job at Crows Bar down on the east bank of the Fraser River. Harry then spread out buying an outfit of his own near Big Bar. Harry was also courting a pretty school ma’am teaching at the 70 Mile school. On Saturday’s he’d ride Snoozer, his sharp little saddle horse, to Peggy Price’s place and they’d spend the week-ends together. Finally they married and made house in a log cabin at Big Bar Lake. After coming in from checking livestock, Harry noticed a small group of Americans camped by the cabin. Harry was quite perturbed, asking them to leave. One person commented that some dumb Canadians, don’t see the potential in a few cabins and boats, for the wonderful fishing for trout the lake held. Although money was tight, and prices for cattle were way down, Peg pondered the idea, then worked on Harry for $300 to buy six boats to start a fishing lodge. It was an immediate success. As word got around, many Americans came to relax and fish. Many said they hated cooking and would Peg do

8.3% of Canadian families are on the brink of homelessness.

Mahoney, from Shelburne, NS, claimed to have constructed 10,000. With flat bottom and flared sides, and painted the traditional Bay of Islands bright orange, locals still build them.

the job? The boats were made in Clinton, using spruce planking. Peg said the boats weighed a ton each. Another boat, handcrafted for Newfoundland and Novia Scotia, of course, was the Dory. Designed to be stacked on the schooners, and out to the Grand Banks, fishing the abundant cod, they were the world’s most popular boat. Sidney

A country of changing identities along with the secular principle that religion is a private matter, but Modi supported a national ban on cow slaughter (many states already banned it) when he took office. More recently he banned the slaughter of buffalo as well. So it’s hardly surprising that “cow protection” vigilantes have been attacking people suspected of trading in beef; half a dozen have been beaten to death in the past couple of years. Modi supports the ban because highcaste Hindus (the group from which the BJP draws most of its support) believe that cows are sacred and must not be eaten. However, lower-caste Hindus, the so-called Dalits (untouchables), do eat beef, and they make up about a quarter of India’s voting population. This poses a serious political problem for the BJP. Muslims, who dominate the beef and leather trades, make up another 14 percent of the voters, but Modi doesn’t worry about losing their votes because they were never going to vote for the BJP anyway. He cares very much about the Dalit vote, because they are the key to making the BJP the natural party of government. Modi won a landslide majority in 2014 in the Lok Sabha (the lower house of parliament), but he did it on only 31 percent of the popular vote. The first-past-the-

GLOBAL VIEWS Gwynne Dyer When India got its independence from Britain 70 years ago this week, it was founded as a secular democracy – secular because it acknowledged the status and rights of Muslims, Sikhs, Christians and other religious minorities as equal to those of the Hindu majority. Mahatma Gandhi, the great hero of the independence movement, was a devout Hindu, but he was murdered by a Hindu fanatic for defending Muslim rights after Partition. It was one of the most fortunate assassinations in history, because Hindu radicals had been using Pakistan’s declaration that it was a “Muslim state” to demand that India be declared a “Hindu state”. After Gandhi’s murder, Jawaharlal Nehru, the country’s first prime minister, was able to round up tens of thousands of Hindu extremists and exploit popular reverence for Gandhi to nail down India’s identity as a secular state. India is still a democracy, but a portrait of one of the men who conspired to assassinate Gandhi now hangs in India’s parliament. The prime minister, Narendra Modi, leads the BJP (Indian People’s Party), which was created as the political wing of the RSS (National Volunteer Organsation), a Hindu supremacist paramili-

tary organisation. And secular is now spelled “sickular” by the Hindutva trolls on Twitter. Hindutva is Hindu exceptionalism of the kind that gives rise to the trope that “to be Hindu is to constantly take offence.” It sees India as a “wounded civilisation” because it has spent most of the past thousand years under the rule of various foreign invaders (hardly a unique experience), and proposes to remedy that with a highly simplified, almost kitch version of politicised Hinduism. It’s just another brand of populism, in other words, but its chief Indian proponent, Narendra Modi, must deal with far deeper divisions in society than his American counterpart, Donald Trump. He is a much more disciplined man, however, and he does not waste his time in tweeting insults and picking fights with random people. Modi is relentlessly focussed on economic growth, and in particular on raising the living standards of the lower-middle-class Indians who are his strongest supporters. But to get and keep the parliamentary majority that would let him carry out his programme he must appeal to a broader audience. For more than half a century India got

post system regularly delivers such lopsided results. But the Rajya Sabha (upper house or senate) is elected by the state legislatures, where Dalits are often quite prominent politically. The BJP will never get a majority in the senate without Dalit support. So Modi walks a tightrope on the issue of sacred cows, promoting their protection to appeal to his upper-caste voters, while weakly condemning the murder of butchers and leather workers by “cow protection” vigilantes (who are backed by the RSS, the BJP’s parent organisation). Indeed, Modi’s whole take on Hinduism is quite ambivalent. Two years ago, for example, talking about health care in India, he got off track and started talking about the elephant-headed god Ganesha: “We worship Lord Ganesha. There must have been some plastic surgeon at that time who got an elephant’s head on the body of a human being and began the practice of plastic surgery.” It is certainly not Hindu orthodoxy to suggest that Ganesha was a chimera created by ancient plastic surgeons. On the other hand, the idea that India led the world in plastic surgery a few thousand years ago will appeal to the more naive Indian nationalists. It’s a bizarre mixture of ideas, but not untypical in populist politics. The bottom line, alas,

is that the “sickular libtards” are in retreat, the religious minorities are being marginalised, and the people who define India as a “Hindu country” are in charge. It’s too early to say that this is an irreversible change, but it’s a radical departure from the country’s founding values. It’s still a democracy, but it’s starting to look a lot more like Pakistan.

Salmon caravan coming Martha Wickett Salmon Arm Observer

Support for wild salmon is coming to Chase in the form of the Wild Salmon Caravan 2017. The caravan, travelling from Vancouver to Chase and the Adams River in October, will also make stops in Chilliwack, Merritt and Kamloops. The

caravan begins Oct. 7 and arrives in Chase Oct. 12. The purpose is to build coalitions and campaigns that link indigenous and non-indigenous people who are working to protect and restore wild salmon and its habitat. Supporters have approached Chase council for support – in-kind

help as well as $1,000 – to make the final caravan stop a special celebration. Plans include a parade and a salmon feast for everyone. A special meeting of council is scheduled for Monday, Aug. 21 at 1 p.m. to discuss the request, as it was deferred at the last meeting. States the Wild Salmon Caravan website:

Obituaries Honour and share the memory of a loved one. Place an announcement in the classifieds.

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of the adventurous, stylish, caring and determined Terezia Benson (nee Neumayer) on August 9, at Piccadilly Care Centre, Salmon Arm, B.C. Teri was predeceased by her husband Archie Benson in 1996.  She will be lovingly remembered by her only daughter, Christine (Stephen) Williams and her four grandchildren Adrianna, Emily, Joshua and Nathan. Teri was born and grew up in Budapest Hungary as an only child with her mom. She married in 1965, briefly lived in Sweden, and they embarked on a transatlantic journey and moved to Toronto in 1967. She knew little English even less about Canada but she was ready to take on the challenge. She relocated to Burnaby and worked as a secretary for a trucking firm. At this job, she felt she was unfairly fired for union organizing so she went on a one-person protest, shut down the firm for a day, and was rehired. She later worked as a payroll supervisor for Canada Post in downtown Vancouver. She divorced and moved to South Surrey, and trained and worked as a legal secretary. In 1976, she met the love of her life, Archie Benson, and they married in 1980. In 1989 they moved to Vancouver Island and fulfilled their dream of living in a small town (Youbou) and later moved to an off-the-grid log cabin with gravity-fed water on a dirt road on Cowichan Lake. Teri’s heart was broken when Archie passed away suddenly in 1996. She continued to live in the log house and work as a legal secretary in Lake Cowichan and Duncan. In 1999 she moved to Sicamous to be closer to her daughter’s family, and she worked in property management and cleaning. She became active on her strata board and negotiated lower cable prices and taxes, and she enjoyed volunteering at the thrift store. Early dementia took hold on Teri and she was eventually placed in Piccadilly Care Centre in Salmon Arm in 2016. Unfortunately cancer took her life in one short month after symptoms developed. No service by request. In lieu of flowers, those wishing to do so may make a donation to the Canadian Cancer Society or a charity of their choice. Christine wishes to thank all the staff at Piccadilly for their kindness and patience with Teri over the past year and a half and also for their compassionate palliative care. Thank you to Shuswap and Kelowna General Hospital staffs for their care and attention over the past month. Online condolences may be sent to the family through Teri’s obituary at www. Arrangements are in the care of Bowers Funeral Home and Crematorium, Salmon Arm.

Frank passed away peacefully surrounded by family at the Shuswap Lake General Hospital on Dec. 30, 2016. He was born in Fairview, Alberta on Jan. 9, 1938. He spent his early years in Carstairs, AB, then in 1962 he and his family moved to Armstrong, BC until 1980 when he purchased the family farm in Mara, BC where he lived the rest of his life. Please join family and friends at the farm (102 Davy Rd., Mara) on August 26, 2017 from 1pm – 5pm to celebrate his life and share memories.

Survived by his wife and best friend Alice, son, retired Deputy Commissioner Craig Callens (Sergeant Joanne Callens), daughter Kim Jacobs (Mike), grandchildren Constable Courtney Callens, Constable Taylor Callens, Brandon Jacobs and Erin Jacobs, brother retired Staff Sergeant Ian (Marg) Callens and sister Jeanne (Rick) Garner as well as many nieces, nephews and extended family.
