Numbers increasing in school district More teachers, resources available to students this coming year. Martha Wickett salmon arm observer

While September always ushers in change, this school year the changes go beyond a new class or classroom. Like many other districts in B.C., North Okanagan-Shuswap School District #83 has been going through a bit of a hiring boom, due to the court decision that forced the previous government to uphold contract language limiting class sizes. Providing details is Superintendent Peter Jory, who began his new job Aug. 1. He says the district will see 44 new full-time equivalent positions, many of them classroom teachers. But in-

cluded in that number will also be staff specialists such as counsellors, learning resource teachers, teacher librarians and English-as-a-second language teachers. The new positions will be spread throughout the district’s 22 schools, he says. The number of full-time equivalent positions will rise from 350 to nearly 400. Some of the specialized positions have been hard to fill, as many districts are vying for the skills. Meanwhile, the final number of students won’t be known until Sept. 29. However, Jory says it’s projected to be up about a dozen students over

last year. And he adds there’s been a bit of a shift since that estimate was determined. “It’s very possible our projections are a shade low.” Jory, who replaces Glenn Borthistle, comes to Salmon Arm from Squamish, where he was director of instruction, technology and innovation with the Sea to Sky School District. He’s excited about his new job. “When Mike McKay (the district’s official trustee) reached out to me… I knew right away. It was a role I was very excited about and an area of the province that was really desirable. I knew my wife and I were going to

be very happy here.” He’s optimistic things will go well. “By all accounts, Mike McKay is doing a very admirable job... As a brand new superintendent, it will be of great benefit to me to draw on his expertise and wisdom.” Among his strengths, Jory says, “I think people will find me to be engaging, very candid and also find me to be decisive. These are strengths for me and I think will be appreciated by the community.” He says he and his wife are happy with the move. “We’ve been here a month and we like it already. We got a dog from the SPCA,” he says with a chuckle.

The Shuswap is abundant with agricultural opportunities waiting to be cultivated. Members of the Shuswap Food Action Co-operative (SFAC) see those opportunities and are keen to dig in and see them come to fruition. SFAC member Jim Kimmerly says only an estimated 60 per cent of local agricultural land is being utilized for agricultural purposes. SFAC has wheels in motion to change that. One of the first steps is connecting owners of agricultural property with people who want to get into farming but can’t afford the land. SFAC reached out to approximately 300 agricultural property owners. Kimmerly said 40 farmers replied, expressing an interest in leasing out their land. A seminar is tentatively planned for November in which those who are interested in leasing their land can learn how to proceed. “So they come to the seminar, they learn about that and we try to match them up with young farmers – we have a pool of them out there, we know who they are,” said Kimmerly. This matching of young farmers to land owners is part of a larger vision to see more food grown and processed locally, all to specified criteria encapsulated under a recognizable brand name such as Shuswap Grown. “What we’re trying to do is if you look in the grocery stores, with the import products, we’ll call that ‘good,’”

Courtney Dawson pets one of the Holstein calves at D Dutchmen Dairy. explained Kimmerly. “And then, if you look at the other end with the organics, we’ll call that the ‘best,’ but not everybody can afford organic products, so we’re trying to find something in the middle, so we’ll have ‘good,’ ‘better’ and ‘best.’ We want to be the ‘better.’” A means of getting there that the SFAC is exploring is with the development of inground greenhouses. An SFAC member is in the midst of constructing his own, to use as a

test case. SFAC chair John McLeod sees a local greenhouse industry as a real possibility, but acknowledges funding opportunities are limited. He also supports a major marketing plan that would include management and processing. Local government buy-in, in the form of a food policy, is also something he’d like to see. Kimmerly says his role with SFAC is to find ways to raise the

profile of local agriculture and get more people interested in eating locally grown food. “I’m not a farmer by the way – I’m a person that sees opportunity and I try to find a way to get people to take advantage of the opportunity,” said Kimmerly. The SFAC will have a booth at the Salmon Arm Fair, Sept. 8-10 at the fairgrounds. Kimmerly and McLeod invite anyone wanting more information to stop by and visit.

River rated at drought level

Salmon Arm

Barb Brouwer Salmon Arm Observer

The Salmon River is in trouble. The Ministry of Forests, Lands and Resource Operations (FLNRO) says the river is at a drought 3 level, with four being the worst possible rating. Residents, farmers, industry and municipalities are being asked to reduce water consumption by 30 per cent, not just for humans but for the other species that call the river home. Low water levels can impede the passage of salmon, increase susceptibility to disease, or cause stranding or death due to low oxygen levels and high water temperatures. Valerie Cameron, FLNRO’s manager of water stewardship, says the Salmon River used to be considered as part of the much larger Thompson watershed. That changed in 2015 when the province deemed the river to be a separate watershed unit because of continuing challenges. “This river has always been a problem; it is a very long system in a valley that has a lot of gravel,” she says, noting there are times when the water level drops and flow is reduced to the porous rock below the surface. “If it’s flowing underground, it’s of no use to the fish.” Another factor is a lot of agricultural activity along the river, with users drawing not only from the surface water, but from wells too. “The agricultural community is by far the biggest user,” says Cameron. “Irrigation takes the lion’s share.” Cameron says part of the challenge in man-

A tossed cigarette butt nets big fine transport truck driver was reported to have thrown the burning cigarette out of his truck’s window while driving through Malakwa. “Police located the offending truck and noted the driver was smoking a freshly lit cigarette when he was stopped,” said McNeil.

“The driver, a 58-yearold man from Ontario, told police he did not know that throwing a burning cigarette out of his window was an issue.” Police informed him it was, and the driver was issued a $575 ticket under the Wildfire Act for dropping a burning substance.

empathy for flood victims

Catastrophic. A landmark event. Crip­ pling. Unprecedented. Devastating. These are the words being used to de­ scribe Hurricane Harvey which is still battering the U.S. and terrorizing it’s residents. They sound very similar to the language used to describe the wildfire situation in our area and around British Colum­ bia. It’s safe to say their dire situation is something we can all relate to a little more personally after what we’ve been through this summer. In the instance of Texas, there were some citizens stocking up on survival items and evacuating just before the storm but, for the most part, the state and its residents seemed to be caught entirely off guard. Houston’s mayor has been criticized for not calling for the evacuation of Ameri­ ca’s fourth largest city. At press time, he was standing firm on his decision, saying “you can’t evacuate 6.5 million people.” One could argue, however, that it is eas­ ier to evacuate and rescue people and animals while there is not several feet of water in the streets. Emergency call cen­ ters were receiving upwards of 1,000 calls for rescue per hour. Residents from near and far have rushed to help each other as government agencies tasked to respond to such emergencies are overwhelmed. Sound familiar? As we watch from afar, with our own devastation still close in our hearts and minds, we have empathy for the victims of Hurricane Harvey. – Williams Lake Tribune

salmon escape testing the waters the great outdoors James Murray They said it would never happen. That was until it did. Sometime on Sat­ urday, Aug. 19 nets containing an esti­ mated 305,000 farmed Atlantic salmon were damaged at a U.S. fish farm in the San Juan Islands. In a statement re­ leased on Aug. 23, a spokesperson for Cooke Aquaculture said an estimated 4,000 to 5,000 of their farmed Atlantic salm­ on may have ended up in the waters around the San Juan Islands after part of a net suffered a “structural failure.” In a later statement, the company said that the number could be much higher. Over the next few days, an unknown number of escaped fish entered the waters off Puget Sound. A number of envi­ ronmental groups have voiced concern that

the escaped farmed Atlantic salmon might endanger wild Pacific salmon and/or com­ pete for food. “Salmon up and down the coast are horribly depressed in numbers,” said Karen Wristen, executive di­ rector of the Living Oceans Society. “Be­ sides the spread of pathogens, the con­ cerns are that the large number of Atlantic salmon would com­ pete with wild fish for food and habitat, and our stocks are simply not in shape to with­ stand that.” Kurt Beardslee, di­ rector of the Wild Fish Conservancy Northwest, called the escape an environmen­ tal nightmare. “The Atlantic salm­ on bring with them pollution, virus and parasite amplification, and all that harms Pacific salmon and our waters of Wash­ ington. This event

should be of concern – especially because the same company, Cooke Aquaculture, is proposing a larger Atlantic salmon net pen in the Strait of San Juan de Fuca. “The majority of our salmon migrate through the straits when they’re leaving as juveniles. If you start having a viral or par­ asitic outbreak there when our juvenile fish are moving through, it could be a disaster.” “Everybody wants to know, what does it mean? And the hon­ est answer is we don’t know,” says Dr. John Volpe, a professor in the School of Environ­ mental Studies at the University of Victoria, who has studied At­ lantic salmon released in the Pacific. “Im­ pact is definitely on the table. But it runs from something quite modest all the way to something very seri­ ous.” Volpe also points out that the Cooke Aqua­ culture escape is not unprecedented. “However, this lat­ est incident is differ­ ent,”says Volpe, “as it

comes at a time when many Pacific salmon populations are strug­ gling to survive against a backdrop that in­ cludes urbanization and climate change. “The last thing they need is yet one more challenge to their long­term via­ bility. Given the very precarious state of most Pacific salmon populations – they’re basically teetering on the edge – you don’t need some catastroph­ ic event to push them over. All they need is a nudge.” Jeremy Dunn, exec­ utive director of the BC Salmon Farmers Association, says that, “although there is considerable con­ cern that the farmed Atlantic salmon could do damage to native fish stocks, history hasn’t shown any negative impacts or invasiveness of At­ lantic salmon in the natural territory of Pacific salmon.” Neville Crabbe, a spokesperson for the Atlantic Salmon Fed­ eration, a group that researches and advo­ cates for wild salmon

populations, says, “a bigger concern is that the crowded con­ ditions at fish farms are often breeding grounds for diseases and parasites. There are now thousands of possibly diseased fish mingling with wild species across a huge geographic range. No matter how people try to downplay this, it is a disaster.” Federal NDP fish­ eries critic Fin Don­ nelly said the Cooke Aquaculture incident “underscores the need for mandatory, land­ based, closed­con­ tainment fish farms in order to protect our wild salmon fishery.” And so it goes, back and forth, each side putting their own spin on things. Everyone with their own views and opinions. Let’s face it – if we can’t agree and come to terms on things when it comes to an issue like the effects of escaped farmed fish on our wild salmon stocks, then how are we ever going to deal with issues such as climate change and global warming?

Letters Welcome

Former trustee disagrees with article The article, Parents reject call for early trustee election, Shuswap Market News, Aug. 25, contains a couple of incorrect and misleading claims. First, taxpayers would not save $150,000; the budget for board elections here is more like $25,000. Also, the article suggests that program spending was cut in order to transfer money to construct an administrative building. This is not true. By law, all school districts run operating surpluses every year (they can’t borrow money and breaking even is basically impossible). The norm for all districts in B.C. is to put the previous year’s operating surplus into their capital account (putting the surplus back into the operating budget would create a structural deficit).

size of the operating surpluses nor the practice of moving

operating surplus into capital was ever questioned by the auditors. Citizens had a chance to respond to the plan to build the board office (as opposed to pursuing other capital projects) in the 2014 election. Instead the result was a vote of confidence, as four trustees were acclaimed and three were re-elected. While I, as one of the trustees, was negligent in my understanding of budget details, trustees were not fired because anything was done improperly when it came to building the board office. We were fired because we were deemed to be dysfunctional. But as I said then, and still maintain now, the cause of dysfunction was severe underfunding by the province. It is no coincidence that the very day we were fired the province came up with new

money for rural schools, then more money for transportation, and with the BCTF victory, finally a substantial amount of funding has been restored. During the years the district faced both severe underfunding and enrolment decline, trustees had to make very difficult decisions – impossible decisions really – but decisions which are rightly made by elected officials who are accountable to the citizens who elected them. An elected board should be restored immediately so that decisions with lasting implications to students and parents are made by people who are accountable through the proper democratic process.

Taking care of business DIRECTOR’S NOTES Paul Demenok

www.saobserver.net

There are three major reasons why a sewer system is needed in the South Shuswap and these are environmental, economic, and social in nature. From an environmental perspective it’s important to note that Columbia Shuswap Regional District ground water monitoring studies reported levels of fecal coliforms and/or E. coli above Canadian raw water standards in 14 of 17 sites in Blind Bay and Sorrento. This finding can be expected as there are thousands of septic systems in our area expelling effluent into the ground, and over many years, this effluent can migrate. In addition, there is a number of older, poorly functioning septic systems that just aren’t doing the proper job anymore. A big reason why we’re all here is because of the lake, so its makes very good sense to take decisive action to preserve the quality of Shuswap Lake water. Economically, one of the most positive opportunities in our area is to bring in liq-

uid waste treatment. Businesses such as hospitality and food services, shopping centres, community recreation centres, health care and seniors care centres, lower cost housing, hotels, and commercial, academic and industrial operations are examples of future development facilitated by the provision of sewers. The social reason is that many seniors in this area are forced to move because they cannot find the housing and services they need to be able to age in place. With a sewer system, we are able to create higher density, lower cost housing including seniors care and health care centres which may enable more people to stay longer in the South Shuswap.

Fear of exposure deep with mental illnesses NaN dickie Opening Our Eyes

AT YOUR SERVICE

Many people who live with a mood disorder (clinical depression or bi-polar disorder) live in denial of their illness. The denial may be short-term, or, sadly, lifelong. A person may outwardly deny their difficulty saying, “I’m perfectly fine. I just have the odd low day, like everyone else does.” Most often the denial is silent, held within, In

fact, some people deny even to themselves any mental challenge. However, sometimes the truth seeps through the inner barricade and straight to their conscious mind. This can be terrifying as it breaks apart their core beliefthat, “I am mentally healthy.” Then there are those who know in their hearts and minds, “I have a problem,” but

will not utter that aloud. They think that their life will fall apart if they expose their hardship. Even when a person tells a friend or family member about their challenge, they may get that supporter to swear they won’t tell a soul. Why is denial so tenacious? Not just for those people who live with a mood disorder (as I do), but the rest of us in our society. Do you have a secret you haven’t told anyone? It may be because you’re afraid of facing up to something that

is difficult to integrate into your life and what you, underneath it all, believe about yourself. For a person with a mood disorder, or any other mental illness, the fear of exposure goes deeper. This person may think, “If I tell anyone about my mood swings, they (such as their family doctor) will make me take medication, or tell me I can’t work, or, at worst, commit me to the psych ward where they will give me shock therapy.” I empathize with this thinking. It is ex-

choose denial! What is our way out of it? The first essential step to become aware of and accept that we are inwardly denying something. The second step, should we choose to take it, is to ask questions: Does what I deny have some truth to it? Do I have (in the case of a mental issue) recurring episodes of depression? If so, am I ready to address it by seeking personal support or professional help? Saying “Yes” to all of the above takes a great deal of courage. Now

comes the third step: taking action, actively seeking a solution to your issue. This takes a further act of courage. Regardless of the nature of your denial, are you up to the challenge? Nan Dickie is the facilitator of a peerled depression support group in Salmon Arm. Meetings are held the first and third Mondays at Askews Uptown community room at noon. Everyone, including supporters, welcome. Info: ndickie@telus.net; 250 8323733.

treme, but the feelings are real and the fear is overwhelming, even though the likelihood of that sequence of things happening is virtually nil. One reason that any one of us chooses denial, however motivated, is that we fear that we will bring shame or embarrassment to ourselves and/or our families. Feelings of shame are most often a result of stigma, whether it comes from within (self-stigma) or from the outside (societal stigma). No wonder we

Governance warrants more study Second CSRD study would look at two options for Area C. What might the South Shuswap look like if it were divided into two electoral areas, or part of it were to become incorporated? The Columbia Shuswap Regional District will be taking steps to explore these two options, and their ramifications, through a restructuring study – a recommendation to come out of the recently completed Electoral Area C governance study. “Based on its review of the current governance and service delivery frameworks, the

South Shuswap Governance Committee (SSGC) recommends to the CSRD Board of Directors that a restructure study for Electoral Area C be undertaken…,” states the motion to the board, which will now seek funding from the province to do the new study. Highlights from the governance study show Area C communities with smaller populations, in general, say they are well-served under the current governance model, though there is concern with the level of representation Area C receives on the CSRD board. In response, the SSGC

concluded the subdivision of Area C might address this concern “in a more appealing way than incorporation.” Residents of communities with larger populations, Blind Bay and Sorrento in particular, share the same and other concerns. Area C director Paul Demenok said some of the responses to the governance study, received through public open houses and consultation, were not unexpected, and that people in smaller communities understood residents in Blind Bay and Sorrento would be interested in incorporation.

“The areas of Sorrento and Blind Bay are more heavily settled… and have different interests in the kinds of services provided perhaps than the more rural communities,” said Demenok, noting autonomy was also a concern of the larger communities. A restructuring study would look at all financial implications related to both options. “I think a lot of people reserved making their final decision, until they understand what the financial implications are... if you look at incorporation, will taxes go up and how much will they go up, and what will you

get in return? Those questions aren’t answered until the next study.” “There would be pretty substantial consultation and communication back and forth with the residents of Area C,” said Demenok of the possibility of a restructuring study. “I think there would be a significant education process happening; there certainly would be a lot of information to assemble and to communicate out to the public...” More information about the completed governance study can be found on the CSRD website.

Finding joy in song Barb Brouwer Salmon Arm Observer

If you can talk, you can sing! This is the premise on which three area women are creating the Shuswap Intergenerational Choir, a group designed to bring young and older members of the community together every week This is not a professional choir and desire to sing is far more important than ability. Led by Andréa Roberts, who is transitioning from the Children’s Choir, membership will be open to young folks between the ages of seven and 17 and the young at heart who are over 70. In her book Imperfect Harmony: Finding Happiness Singing with Others, Stacy Horn calls singing: “An infusion of the perfect tranquilizer – the kind that both soothes your nerves and elevates your spirit.” “Group singing not only brings happiness but deeply connects people,” says Roberts. “A lot of money is spent on trying to address loneliness, social isolation and anxiety,” adds Dr. Joan Bratty, noting that science has proven music benefits all of it. Bratty asked Roberts if she was interested in leading a choir comprised of youths and seniors, including those in the local long-term residences. “I invited Andréa because I knew she would be a great leader, has a lot of experience, used to sing in a nursing home, has experience with the Children’s Choir and, of course, she’s Mary Poppins,” laughs Bratty of Roberts’ role in last year’s Shuswap Theatre production. In her nine-year career as a licensed practical nurse in extended care, Roberts saw first-hand how music has the power to lift the soul. “Music is a universal language; it’s just so powerful, it’s medicinal

and healing,” she says, noting she has already received enthusiastic emails from people who want to join. “It is the easiest way to relax,” adds Bratty who sings with Roberts in the award-winning Ancora Women’s Ensemble. “I think we’re supposed to sing together.” Family physician Barb McKinnon agrees. When her child was in grade 2 and 3, teacher Ceren Caner, organized several student visits to Shuswap Lodge. “It was just magical, so amazing what both sides learned from each other,” she says. “Interestingly, the children loved it and, at the end of year, the highlight wasn’t the water slides, field trips etc, it was going to the seniors’ home.” McKinnon hopes

conversations and connections will be made through the choir as well. Bratty and McKinnon took their idea to the Shuswap North Okanagan Division of Family Practice, where executive director Tracey Kirkman was immediately supportive, asking the doctors to write a proposal. Funding from the organization means the program will be offered free of charge. Kirkman says the family practice was excited by the idea because they have seen the benefits of the music and memory program in place in some of the long-term care facilities. “We were excited because of the benefit to seniors and the intergenerational aspect is proven to be a key component in aging well,”

Five easy steps for raising kids HealtHy bites Serena Caner In general, I stay clear of magic formulas. As a dietitian, my experience is that anything simple is too good to be true. However, that did not stop a headline from catching my eye: “Four steps to raising healthy children: 5-2-1-0.” Imagine, if raising children could be so simple! Still, I liked the idea, except 5-2-1-0 was not a logical number sequence

for my brain; so, I adapted it to make it easier to remember (and to acknowledge the mental health component). Here it is, without any guarantees: A simple guideline for raising healthy children: 5-4-3-2-1-0 Every day, your child should get: 5 servings fruits and veggies 4 hugs 3 smiles

2 or less hours of screen time 1 or more hours of active play 0 sugar sweetened beverages Guidelines are always controversial. Yes, you can have more veggies, hugs and smiles. There are no doubt people reading this article thinking, “zero sugar sweetened beverages? That seems extreme.” I would agree, but the spirit of the guideline is that these drinks should not be consumed regularly. Pop, slushies, fruit drinks (i.e. not 100% juice), lemonades, iced teas,

energy drinks, flavoured milk drinks and coffees contain more sugar than you would normally get from food, do not make you feel full and contribute little or no vitamins or minerals. There is a good body of evidence suggesting a relationship between consuming sugar-sweetened beverages and increasing risk of obesity and chronic disease. Therefore, as parents, it is best to avoid making sugar-sweetened beverag-

es a regular routine. Raising healthy children is more complex than this guideline. However, it does offer a helpful way of remembering today’s basic public health messages for children. Our children are growing up in an environment that makes healthy choices difficult. We must go out of our way to help them adopt healthy behaviours that will help them avoid chronic disease later in life.

Keep kids safe Staff Sgt. Scott West Contributor

It’s the time of year when families look to the purchase school supplies and excited youngsters’ minds turn to school. It’s also the time of year when school zone speed limitations come back into effect to keep these children safe. Drivers are asked to be extra vigilant as some of these children, in all of their excitement, can be a little absent minded around traffic. Your caution might save a life. The Salmon Arm RCMP detachment will be making the rounds to the vari-

ous school zones, and will be writing tickets to drivers who fail to heed the 30 km/ hr school zone speed limit. Fines in the Province of British Columbia start at $196, and run up to $253 for speeding in a school zone. If you are found to be speeding excessively, the fine is up to $483 and your vehicle will be impounded. So please slow down. Parents are encouraged to plan a route with your children before school starts. A family walk is a great time to do this. More back-to-school safety tips are available on the RCMP website.

Go green to school This fall, the Recycling Council of British Columbia (RCBC) invites you to kick off the new school year on a green note. “From kindergarteners all the way to post-secondary students, there are lots of ways each of us can do to reduce our impact on the Earth,” says Brock Macdonald, RCBC Chief Executive Officer. Before shopping, make a list of what you or your children already have and what you actually need to avoid overspending on unnecessary supplies. Check out thrift/ consignment stores for fresh threads or the refurbished section at local electronics stores

for deals on last year’s laptops and tablets. If you do need to buy new supplies, choose eco-friendly brands and products with minimal or recyclable packaging. Pick cardboard and paper notebooks over of vinyl binders. Buy writing instruments that are easily refillable or made from recycled materials. Walk, bike, or take transit to school. Organize a carpool. Set time aside to make healthy lunches. Pack them in reusable bags. Got ideas of your own, call the BC Recycling Hotline at 604-RECYCLE in the Lower Mainland, and toll-free at 1-800-6674321.

NICK The SOBC– Salmon Arm team played their hearts out at the 2017 Provincial Games in Kamloops. The games were close and exciting — the last one above all — but they won Gold! Nick had a blast. He loved the opening ceremonies, especially the guy on the bike, and enjoyed meeting athletes from around the province and the Yukon. His goal is to do his best at future events. He wants to continue to participate in basketball and bocce, and will try snowshoeing this winter.

Everyone Welcome!

Fires take toll on wildlife ShuSwap OutdOOrS Hank Shelley It seems like a summer with no end, with warm temperatures, wildfires, low stream flows. A summer like no other. But ol’ Father Time awaits no one, and here we are already approaching fall and the hunting season. Taking my log splitter to help an elderly couple get their winter wood supply in a few days ago; their son, who resides at Williams Lake, dropped in for a visit. He and I got into a discussion about the wildfire situation, and its effect on game populations there. Everyone is a hunter or fisher in his town. It means hunters will have to travel a little farther to hunt/harvest a deer or moose for the freezer.

www.saobserver.net

There may be job losses as mills may have to close as so much timber supply went up in smoke. Game animals, being more agile, can escape in some cases to safer ground. Still, this hot dry weather, has affected where animals forage for food and water. Bears in particular, are having a tough time, as the berry crops, grasses and forbes dried up. Overall then, Brian Harris, a biologist in Penticton, submitted an article on game animals, birds, wildlife to BC Outdoors magazine. In the latest edition, here is his forecast for the upcoming hunting season. Region #8 – Elk doing well due to low snowpack. The two herds of elk in En-

derby/Deep Creek are growing/expanding. M U 8-25 fringes close to Enderby, where there is a six-point bull season. There are few six points, and the aboriginal harvest is quite high. Whitetail deer: Doing well. Unfortunately biologists think having an extended doe season/ bow season, to reduce populations, to safe dwindling mule deer numbers is the answer. It is making ethical hunters very angry. Mule deer: Hunters will have to hunt a bit harder to find that fourpoint animal as wolf/ cougar predation is at a peak, and animals are scattered. Game birds: High numbers of Canada geese assure good harvest. Grouse: Ruffed/blues still recovering from a wet spring. Spotty. Region # 3 - whitetail deer: Numbers increasing despite heavy pressure. Three hundred to 350 animals taken on

average. Moose: It will be difficult to find a spike/fork bull. Moose numbers are stable but predation by wolves still very high. Mule deer: Numbers down due to longer season drawing other hunters from closed areas/predation/wet spring in fawning time. Grouse: Quite spotty, with low clutch (hatch) survival. While out hunting, my partner and I will pass up birds, hoping the little buggers get through the coming winter! Region # 4 - Elk hunters will be disappointed due to a heavy snow pack winter and dwindling numbers of elk. Cougar/wolf/Communal Aboriginal harvest also taking a large toll. Whitetail deer: Numbers are good. Should be a good season there, for hunters travelling to the region. Early bow season in most regions gives hunters a good advantage.

Great routes for families Sail into SHUSWAP CYCLING George Zorn “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -Ernest Hemingway Welcome to the beautiful and diverse rural landscapes of the Shuswap – North Okanagan! Enjoy the sights, sounds and smells of nature as you explore more than 1,500 kilometres of quiet, paved

back roads on your bicycle. The Shuswap is a cycling paradise. It’s yours to discover and enjoy for a day, for a week or for a lifetime.

INFORMATION DESIGNED TO PROMOTE AND ENHANCE YOUR WELLBEING

Sweat it out to eliminate toxins FAMILY CHIROPRACTIC Dr. Warren Gage With such a hot summer upon us, many people are running indoors to avoid this long period of hot days. While I admit I sometimes feel spoiled working in an air-conditioned space, it is still very important to get out and sweat on a regular basis. In fact, studies are showing that sweating is a very important part of staying healthy because it is

one of the main ways our body eliminates toxins. A recent study done in Canada published in the journal Biomedical Research International looked at how the body rids itself of dangerous chemicals called polybrominated diphenyl ether (otherwise known as flame retardants) or PBDE's. These chemicals are banned in Europe but

are found on countless consumer products in North America. They are added to goods in an attempt to improve safety of the public by making items less flammable. PBDE's are now known to have a number of serious health consequences including hormone disruption, thyroid disorders, cellular and DNA damage, and the development of nerve plaques in the brain (commonly seen with Alzheimer's and MS etc). In the study they assessed the urine, blood and sweat of 20

individuals and tested for the presence of 5 different types of PBDE's. They found each of the PBDE's were present in 80-100% of the test subjects blood and sweat, but none was found in the urine. So, what this means is that one can probably assume most North Americans have PBDE's in our body which are known to have serious health consequences. These chemicals are not excreted through the urine, so the best way to eliminate them is through regular sweating. Exercise is the obvious way to

get a good sweat on, but for those that may not be able to be active enough to sweat, alternatives such as saunas or infrared blankets are also an option. Considering the hot dry summer we are experiencing, one can simply spend some time outside topping up your vitamin D and detoxing the body through a good sweating session.

Be persistent and consistent. If your child is too young to understand a voice of reason, incorporate their new glasses into their regular daily activities. Wearing their glasses should be as routine as buckling up your child in a car seat, brushing your child’s teeth or feeding and

changing them. For a child old enough to understand, explain to them why it 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 hurt-

ing 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 everything 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!

How to get your child to love their glasses Help them to find a frame they will love, and allow your child to have a say in the frame they choose to wear. Not only will you empower them you will get them excited to wear their new glasses. Frames should fit comfortably. An Optical Assistant can help you find a frame in the right size that is appropriate for your child’s prescription. Begin slowly, especially if your child is a first time eyeglass wearer. Have them choose a favourite activity or movie they love, then explain to them how much better they will see everything with their new glasses.

Drought rating up in South Thompson The B.C. government has upped the drought rating for the North Thompson and South Thompson regions, and is urging all water users including residents, industry, farmers and municipalities, to reduce water consumption by 30 per cent. In both the North and South Thompson drainages, some streams have healthy flows, while a number of important salmon streams are experiencing flows that are problematic for fish, including returning adult salmon. Due to these variable conditions, water users should be aware which streams are of specific concern and reduce their consumption from these, including Bessette Creek in the South Thompson and Lemieux Creek in the North Thompson. These streams provide regionally signif-

icant aquatic ecosystems, and there is potential for significant or irreversible harm to the ecosystems as a result of stream flows dropping below critical environmental flow thresholds. Ministry staff are closely monitoring river levels and may upgrade the drought level if the weather continues to have a negative effect on stream flows and water supply. Due to the current conditions, regional water managers may take additional regulatory actions if they are deemed necessary. Under the Water Sustainability Act, a Section 86 Declaration of Significant Water Shortage Order, in conjunction with a Section 87 Critical Environmental Flow Protection Order, may be issued. Specific actions could include the temporary suspension

Photo contest

Photobugs are invited to share their best landscape shots for a chance to win a prize. The Thompson Nicola Regional District continues its 50th anniversary celebrations with a photo contest that runs from Sept. 1 to midnight on Oct. 1. Amateur photographers are invited to capture and share photos that depict local landscapes and scenery. Photos must be taken within the TNRD. Submitted photos that meet the criteria will be posted on the TNRD’s 50th anniversary Instagram page where viewers can help select contest winners. The contest features a chance to win prizes including an Android TV 4k Media Player Streaming Box for the first-place winner. The contest is open to all TNRD residents. For rules and more, visit http://50th.tnrd. ca.

of water licences or short-term water approvals, according to their dates of precedence, to restore flows to minimum critical levels in the affected streams. Any such actions will be site-specific and dependent on stream conditions. Water users in both systems are also reminded to ensure that water intakes are screened to Fisheries and Oceans Canada standards to prevent fish from being pulled into water systems as water levels drop. Low water levels can impede the passage of salmon, increase susceptibility of fish to disease, and cause fish stranding or death due to low oxygen and high water temperatures. Local water conservation bylaws may differ from provincial water conservation targets, due to local water supply and demand,

and the availability of storage (lakes and reservoirs) or groundwater. Residential, agricultural and industrial water users who are located within municipalities and regional districts are encouraged to observe local water conservation bylaws where they exist. Water conservation is everyone’s responsibility. Many communities in B.C. are prepared to deal with water supply shortages and low stream-flow conditions and have drought management plans and water conservation programs already in place. Water conservation tips for: At home – • Limit outdoor watering. • Don’t water during the heat of the day or when it’s windy. • Consider planting drought-tolerant vegetation.

State of endless war remains in Afghanistan GLOBAL VIEWS Gwynne Dyer In 2010, Barack Obama’s vice-president, Joe Biden, vowed that the United States would be “totally out” of Afghanistan “come hell or high water, by 2014.” In 2014 Obama said that he would leave about 8,000 U.S .troops there after all, and made an agreement with the new Afghan president, Ashraf Ghani, that extended their stay “until the end of 2024 and beyond.” Donald Trump wasn’t having any of that. Back in 2013 he tweeted “Our troops are being killed by the Afghanis we train and we waste billions there. Nonsense! Rebuild the USA.” But it looks like the generals have now got to him with what passes for military wisdom. On Monday, Trump announced that he would be sending more U.S. troops to Afghanistan – probably around 4,000 – and that they would stay as long as necessary. He has a clever new

strategy, too: “We are not nation building again. We are killing terrorists.” (I bet George W. Bush and Barack Obama wish they had thought of that.) There is a strong temptation at this point to haul out the hoary old line: “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.” Trump is, indeed, proposing to do the same old things again, ostensibly in the hope of achieving different results. Peak U.S. troop strength in Afghanistan was 100,000 in 2010-11. If that did not deliver victory then, how likely is it that boosting U.S. troop numbers from 8,500 to 12,500 will do it now? Neither the Soviet Union nor the British empire at the height of its power were able to overcome Afghan resistance to a foreign military presence, and we now have 16 years of evidence that the United States cannot

do it either. Both the British and the Russians were able to maintain a military presence in the country as long as they were willing to take the casualties that involved, but in neither case did the regimes they installed long survive their departure. Whatever their merits, those regimes were fatally tainted by their foreign sponsorship. The United States now finds itself in precisely the same situation. Ashraf Ghani’s government is certainly not the worst that Afghanistan has had to endure, but it lacks legitimacy in the eyes of Afghan nationalists because it depends on foreign troops and foreign money. Since those foreign troops dwindled from 140,000 in 2011 (including non-American troops from a dozen other Western countries) to only 13,400 now, the Afghan government has lost control of about 40 percent of the country. And the process is accelerating: one-third of that territory was lost in just the past year. Helmand province, which Western

troops took from the Taliban in 2006-2010 at the cost of almost 600 deaths, is almost entirely back under Taliban control, and Uruzgan and Kandahar provinces are next. Even the capital, Kabul, for so long a bubble of safety, is now regularly targeted by suicide bombers: at least 150 killed in a massive blast in May, 20 more at a funeral in June, 35 more in a bus bombing in July. So what would happen if the foreign troops all left and the Taliban became the government again, as they were in 19962001? Would the country become a breeding ground for terrorism? Would more plots like the 9/11 attacks be hatched there? Prob-

ably not. The Taliban are essentially a nationalist group. Their extremely conservative take on Islam was not seen as a problem by Washington when they were fighting the Russians, and most rural Afghan males do not see it as a problem now. (Nobody asks the women.) Most urban, educated Afghans are terrified of the Taliban’s return, of course, but they are a small fraction of the population. And many foreigners see the Taliban as the least bad alternative to the U.S.-backed regime. As Zamir Kabulov, the Russian special envoy to Afghanistan, said in early 2016: “Taliban interests objectively

coincide with ours.” What he meant was that the Taliban aren’t interested in foreign affairs at all. They do not dream of a world Islamic empire; they just want to run Afghanistan. Indeed, they are the main military rivals to the jihadis of Islamic State and al-Qaeda who are currently trying to establish a foothold in the country – and by and large they are winning those little private wars. But what about 9/11? There is good reason to suspect that Osama bin Laden and his mostly Arab companions of al-Qaeda, then guests of the Taliban, did not warn their hosts before they carried out that atrocity, since it

would clearly lead to a U.S. invasion and the overthrow of the Taliban regime. Obviously, few of these considerations will have occurred to Donald Trump, but does that mean he really thinks he can win in Afghanistan? Not necessarily. Maybe, like Obama, Trump has simply decided that he doesn’t want the inevitable collapse of the Western-backed regime in Afghanistan to happen on his watch. He’s just committing enough American troops to the country to kick it down the road a bit. Gwynne Dyer is an independent journalist whose articles are published in 45 countries.

Work BC helps people overcome barriers to employment. Jim Elliot Salmon Arm Observer

Finding jobs for the unemployed is about breaking down barriers. Gail Evans, manager of the Salmon Arm Work BC office, helps people overcome those barriers by providing resources, boosting the applicant’s confidence and helping them market their job skills to employers. Work BC’s office provides a self-serve area with computers, a job board and informational resources for job seekers. Evans said in the self-serve area job seekers can use the computers to build or improve their resumes and cover letters using templates, or to research school or training opportunities they may need. She said a lack of a computer or even just

a printer to print copies of resumes is a barrier on the job search that Work BC is able to remedy. Beyond physical limitations such as the lack of a computer, Evans said job seekers can be helped by taking an interview focusing on their job skills and learning to market them. Job seekers who still do not find success after using the resources in the self-serve area are referred to Work BC case managers who provide support and guidance. Evans said Work BC offers workshops on subjects such as resume writing and interview techniques. “We have workshops every day throughout the month.” She said people of all demographics use Work BC’s services in the Shuswap, but some

ages have more success than others. “From our experience, a more mature population has a harder time finding a job than younger people.” She said Work BC Job developers have had good results overcoming the barrier of age by marketing the positive aspects of an older employee, including their greater life experience, common sense and personal management skills. Another common barrier is lack of confidence. Evans said the staff at the Work BC office overcome lack of confidence in clients by having them attend workshops as well as working with the job developer and their case manager to better understand and market their job skills. “I find that once people start getting

Hyde Sawmill

Our company has been providing quality timbers and beams to customers for over 30 years. In 1983, Alan and his wife, Kim returned to the family farm to raise their two children. At this time, Alan started to re-build the mill that he had once worked in as a child. It took a year to re-build the old mill. Alan started cutting ties for the Railroad which were in great demand at the time. He was also cutting cedar cants for a re-saw mill along with beams and timbers for many homes that were built in Sicamous and the area. Alan and Kim operated this mill for seven years.

orders kept increasing and the old mill could not keep up with the increase of large oversized timber and beams. In 1990, Kim’s father (Merv Siegrist) and mother Anne moved to Sicamous to become partners. Alan and Merv bought a new mill large enough to fill the orders of the beams and timbers that the old saw mill could not handle. The next generation has now joined the business. Alan and his son Tyler work the mill together making a great father/son team. Our team at Hyde Sawmill takes great pride in their workmanship and in supplying a superior product to customers.
