Van stolen from disabled man Citizens step up to help couple left stranded after Calgary concert. Barb Brouwer salmon arm observer

While he rues the loss of his specialized van, Matthew Loring is celebrating the kindness of family, friends and strangers. Somewhere between 6 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 2 and early Sunday morning, Loring’s van was stolen from a Calgary parking lot. Rendered a quadriplegic in a June 12, 2011 diving accident, the 43-year-old was liberated with a 1995 Dodge van purchased with the help of family and friends in 2014.

The large model vehicle was rigged out with a lift which permitted Loring, a driver and his three children to travel beyond local borders and stay somewhere overnight; something that had been impossible following the accident. So the theft of his van while he was in Calgary for a Garth Brooks concert was an enormous loss. The vehicle was discovered in Olds, Alta. on Tuesday night. On Wednesday morning, Loring still had no idea what damage has been done to it other than “the steering column has been devastated.” Loring explains that he and girl-

friend Shelly Kalke arrived at their Calgary hotels around dinnertime Saturday where they discovered the guest parking lot was full. Instead, the couple had to park in the paid lot across the street. After what he describes as a great concert, the couple returned to the hotel and settled in for the night. Early the following morning, Kalke went down to the lot to extend the parking fee and collect a few items, including Loring’s special mug. “She went down to the lot and I got a text that the van is gone,” Loring says.

“I texted, “Are you in the right parking lot?’ he laughs. “And she said yes.” A round of calls to the parking lot operator and Calgary impound lots ensued, without success. It was the same story at all the local tow truck companies, but Loring says staff at the impound lots were very helpful. “Those ladies really checked around,” he said, noting that when it finally became clear the van had been stolen, police were called. Both Calgary police and the RCMP verified the van was not loContinued on A2

Continued from A1 cated at any impound lot or towing yard and soon, every police and RCMP station in Canada had the licence plate and description of the van, Loring says. “We finally had something to eat at 1 p.m. and tried all the rental places,” he says. “There was nothing for me to rent to get home in; all that was left was a few small cars I couldn’t transfer into them.” That’s when the enormity of his problem hit Loring. “For a while there, in my state, it was almost unfathomable – how are we going to get home? There’s nothing to rent, I’d have to be carried in because there was no ramp. It was a worry for a while,” he says. “But the way the universe works, Shelly’s cousin Kris Jagt, an RN, knew of a lady named Jane.” Calling her “the biggest sweetheart in the world, Loring says the woman not only had a wheelchair-accessible wheelchair, she offered it to the couple for the trip back to Salmon Arm. “She and her hubby drove into the city in two vehicles, came up to the hotel, picked me up on the day of the Pride Festival when downtown was crazy, drove us to Shelly’s cousin’s house and her husband met her there,” raves Loring.

Matthew Loring’s wheelchair-accesible van, stolen in Calgary Saturday, Oct. 2, was found in Olds, Alberta on Tuesday. Whether the vehicle is reparable, or expensive equipment inside remains, was still not known Wednesday afternoon. “This lady was so wonderful and wouldn’t take any money.” In the meantime, Jagt got busy on Facebook, reporting the theft on Garth Brooks’ page among others. “She put out the word with the whole description,” he says, pointing out that, as of Tuesday, the post had generated more than 300,000 shares, 200,000 of them after Kelly and Blu Hopkins reposted. Shelly’s uncle drove the couple home in the borrowed van, getting them home by about 11 p.m. Sunday night then began the return trip. Loring is now waiting to hear if his van is salvageable and can be returned to Salmon Arm. He is also working with the insurance company to see about replacing expensive equipment that was in the van and whether the Calgary parking lot operator has any responsibility.

Other than a bit of shocked disbelief, Loring says he was quite calm at the beginning. “But the biggest emotion that would come out of this is how amazing these people that we met were. They made a really difficult situation as easy as it could be,” he says. “There’s that 10-toone ratio that for every jackass, there are those nine other people who are champs.” Thanks to his power chair, Loring will be able to make his way around the community and a friend of his, John Pottie, has offered the use of his wheelchair-accessible van for the time being. “Shelly was by far the biggest help through this little adventure, she dragged my ass all over the place with a smile and a snuggle,” says a grateful Loring. “I hope the people who stole the van realizeed what kind of van it was and felt lousy.”

Salmon Arm Fair opens the gates Leah Blain Observer contributor

The fairgrounds are ready to welcome visitors today, with the event opening at noon Friday and running through until Sunday – with the ever-popular parade starting at 10:45 a.m. Saturday morning. And guests should have a lot to see and do. “Last year there were 420 exhibits in the vegetable division and this year there’s 570,” says 2017 Salmon Arm Fair assistant co-ordinator Mark Higginbottom, “and the flowers are up 15 per cent.” They’re also seeing a huge number of new exhibitors, about 150, and a number of those are in the pre-school age group (up 30 per cent) and increased family participation trend this year. “You see, the young people are carrying the torch. The fair has deep roots in the community,” says 2017 fair co-ordinator Ronnalee McMahon. Other categories proving popular this year are the Lego division (almost double from last year) and 4H horse show. Overall, the increase of exhibits is about 10 per cent. As the fair is celebrating its 120th anniversary, this year promises to be a spectacular one for sheer entertainment value. “We are really showcasing great B.C. talent,” says entertainment co-ordinator Lori Risling. “We have the most variety we’ve ever had and we’re showcasing the most award-winning artists we’ve ever had.” The main stage will

McMahon says there are several new attractions, including a Sip and Savour event, which showcases local beer, wine, and food artisans. “The fair has a huge role to play in showcasing farmers who provide food that goes

on our tables,” says McMahon. With so many more entries, increased attendance is anticipated. The doors open at 9.a.m. Friday. The first of the SuperDogs shows, a canine comedy, kicks off at noon, with additional shows at 2:30 and 5 p.m., as well as shows on Saturday and Sunday. Chuckwagon races start at 1:30 p.m. on Friday. From noon onwards on Friday there’s lots of entertainment at the main stage, including a magician at 5:45 p.m. and Elvis (aka Adam

Fitzpatrick) at 6. If you go through the door before 5 p.m. on Friday, the one-day pass is only $5 instead of $11. The parade, as usual, will be one of Saturday’s highlights. It starts at 10:45 a.m. The theme for the parade and fair is “Something to Crow About.” Fairgoers will also appreciate the food choices this year. Besides the usual favourites, there will be some healthier options including wood-fire pizza. And going down Memory Lane there

First Nations issues aired Neskonlith Chief Judy Wilson joined Indigenous leaders from around B.C. and across Canada in Geneva, Switzerland in August, to call on the United Nations for assistance. Wilson, speaking on behalf of the Union of BC Indian Chiefs as well as the Neskonlith band, was one of many presentations to the UN’s International Convention on the Elimination of Ra-

cial Discrimination (CERD). Many issues were raised, one being the reality of what’s happening in Canada, Wilson said. She says while Canada is listed near the top in the UN human development index, in reality, indigenous people are far down the list because of poverty, poor housing and other problems. She says if First Nations were not marginalized from their land, they wouldn’t be dependent

on government. Issues brought up by Indigenous people across Canada included land rights, exploitation of resources by multinationals, Site C, Mount Polley and Kinder Morgan, and missing and murdered women. CERD released its report last week and cited several problem areas for Canada, including the federal government’s record of not following through on just treatment of Indigenous people.

Budget wishlist to be lengthy

The provincial public accounts released by Finance Minister Carole James have the NDP and Greens pleased with their position. Having pried control of the provincial government from the Liberals, the NDP are the recipients of a $2.7 billion surplus. James clearly signaled the government’s intentions: “It is long past time for the citizens of B.C. to share in the benefits of the strong economy they helped create.” Translation: It’s time to spend. The Liberals will use this as their first point of attack, now that they’re back in opposition. Though their criticism comes from shaky ground. Government spending was going up well before the election. The problem the NDP now faces is that $2.7 billion doesn’t go as far as it used to. The Liberals for years prioritized funding of things that were relatively cheap and came with nice ribbons to cut. We got a lot of new infrastructure, much of it very useful – bridges and roads and even schools and hospital expansions. They were always cheap, however, with the ongoing costs. Transportation, education, and social services never got as much attention. If the NDP makes much-needed investments in those areas, it will help a lot of people. But it will also increase the amount spent year after year after year, on salaries for bus drivers, nurses, teachers, doctors, and others. We need to spend that money. B.C. is booming, but many have been left behind. Building a better future will be costly, but necessary, if we want the province to thrive. – Black Press

Meteor sparks major interest the great outdoors James Murray In the early evening hours of Monday, Sept. 4, at approximately 10:14 p.m., a fair number of residents in southern BC witnessed a bright light moving in an easterly direction that for a moment lit up the night sky. Some who reported the incident also said the appearance of the light was followed a moment later by “a loud, sort of sonic boom sound.” As I recall, I was watching television at the time and sort of remember seeing the sky light up a bit. Thinking it was but the lights of a vehicle turning around on the street outside, I took no notice and went on watching my program. If I had only bothered to go to the window, but then again, I didn’t bother to look out the window when the water bombers were flying right by my window the other day neither. According to the American Meteor Society’s website, about 10 to 50 meteorite dropping events occur over the earth each day. However,

2/3 of these events will occur over ocean, while another 1/4 or so will occur over very uninhabited land areas, leaving only about two to 12 events each day with the potential for discovery by people. Half of these again occur on the night side of the earth, with even less chance of being noticed. Due to the combination of all of these factors, only a handful of witnessed meteorite falls occur each year. And I took no notice! Alan Hildebrand, an associate professor in the Geosciences Department at the University of Calgary, said that based on several videos he has seen of the phenomena, the object appeared to be exceptional in size when it entered the atmosphere between one and 10 tonnes. However, he also said that he suspects the massive rock likely broke up into chunks ranging from 10 kilograms to smaller than pea-sized. “I would expect there are thousands of pieces,” says Hildebrand. “We call the area

where the meteorites fall the ‘strewn field’ and I would expect it’s at least 20 kilometres long.” Hildebrand also says he plans to search for that debris. “The area out there is very tough in the sense it’s mountains and forest for the most part, very rugged and tough to climb up and down searching. It’s a lot easier if you’re looking in fields in the prairies.” The word meteor comes from the Greek word meteoron, which translated means phenomenon in the sky. It is used to describe the streak of light produced as matter falls into the Earth’s atmosphere creating a temporary incandescence resulting from atmospheric friction. A meteoroid is matter revolving around the sun or any object in interplanetary space that is too small to be called an asteroid or a comet. The term fireball refers to an extremely bright meteor. The majority of meteorites are believed to be fragments of asteroids. The most common meteorites are chondrites, which are stony meteorites. Radiometric dating would seem to indicate that chondrites are somewhere in the neighbourhood of 4.55 billion years old, which is the approximate age of the solar system. Other meteorite types which

have been geologically processed are achondrites, irons and pallasites. Achondrites are formed by melting and recrystallization on or within meteorite parent bodies; as a result, achondrites have distinct textures and mineralogies indicative of igneous processes. Pallasites are stony iron meteorites composed of olivine enclosed in metal. Iron meteorites consist primarily of iron-nickel alloys with minor amounts of carbon, sulfur, and phosphorus. Pretty neat stuff. In Canada, meteorites are owned by the owner of the property where they were found. Having said that, the scientific value of a meteorite far exceeds the monetary value of such a find. It will be interesting to see if any material is found from Monday evening’s meteorite – it’s believed that the meteorites may have landed somewhere between Slocan Lake and Arrow Lakes. Maybe Professor Hildebrand might let me tag along when he goes searching. Or maybe not, since I couldn’t even be bothered to take a look out my window. Oh, well. What I do know for sure is that I’ve held a piece of a real meteorite in my hand and, I must say, it puts a lot of things into perspective.

Studying the Shuswap now possible SHUSWAP PASSION Jim Cooperman Secondary school students returning to Shuswap schools this fall have a new resource to use that will improve their knowledge about their home place. Everything Shuswap will form part of their social studies curriculum and will be used in other classes as well. Although it is the most comprehensive source of information about our region to date, there is much more to be learned about the Shuswap and the book can be used as a source of ideas for more study and research. In addition to serving as an educational resource, sales of Everything Shuswap provide funding for outdoor learning opportunities through field trips. Ideally, the two benefits can be combined, so that students can visit areas described in the book to learn more about specific locales. Much more can be learned about each of the sub-drainages described in the first chapter, including details about geological features, wildlife, plant life, hydrological features and history. As an example, the Salmon River watershed is highly complex and very diverse, given that the river flows underground

through parts of the upper valley during the dry season and agriculture has caused so many impacts. Students could research the extensive flow data available from floods to drought depending on the time of year, the damage done to the riparian area and the restoration efforts done to date, the loss of the once mighty salmon run and the impacts from logging, fires and mountain pine beetles. One learns in the geology chapter, how most of the rock found in the Shuswap is metamorphic and many millions of years old. One interesting project for students would be to visit, photograph, classify and map those areas that contain other types of rock. These include the relatively few Shuswap climbing sites such as the granitic rock at Syphon Creek in Gleneden. Mt. Ida would be an excellent destination for a field trip where one can find

both ancient volcanic sedimentary rocks. The ecology chapter offers many opportunities for more study, including developing a deeper understanding of the biogeoclimatic classification system. Each of the five zones found in the Shuswap are further divided into many sub-zones with different moisture and temperature regimes. Students could learn to recognize these subzones by identifying the different types of plants found in each one. Further research could focus on the diversity of wildlife found in various zones and the geographic and climatic features that determine which plants thrive. Old-growth forests are in decline due to logging, settlement, pests and fires. Remaining stands offer excellent opportunities for study and research and thankfully, there are many stands of ancient trees protected in the Larch Hills. One project would be to identify, measure, map and photograph or sketch the largest white pine, cedar, fir and hemlock trees still standing. Field trips

into these forests could also inspire students to write essays or poetry, create videos or compose music. Wetlands are a crucial component of the Shuswap ecosystem and deserve greater attention and study. Within the city of Salmon Arm, many wetlands have been paved over and built on, while others are impacted by development. Students could catalogue these areas and visit them to identify plant and animal species and determine how healthy they are and if and how they are threatened. There is much more to be learned about the Secwepemc people, who have lived here since time immemorial. Many of the papers used for research when writing chapter four are available for study online at shuswapwa-

South Shuswap Woman anxious about cougar Martha Wickett Salmon Arm Observer

Carol Funk likes to spend time at Shuswap Lake, relaxing, paddling her canoe. Recently, however, her feelings of relaxation have been interrupted. On Friday evening, Aug. 25, around dusk, Funk was painting her dock house in Tappen near the lakeshore, near Tappen Beach Road. Around the same time, her pitbull Silver had been sitting under her chair, shaking. She didn’t know why. As she came around the building, she saw something black standing by the water. A big cat. She says the cat was tall – its back stood about three feet off the ground, and its tail looked to be about two-and-a-half feet long. “It was sauntering towards me – it was the first time I’d seen one that close. Its tail was swishing back and forth and the tip was doing that wicked little back and forth twitch,” she says. “I yelled, ‘There’s a cougar down here – there were people sitting just up from the tracks.”

When she yelled, the cougar ran about 30 feet away from her, she says, towards Fraser Beach. “I started looking for my head lamp, I found it, put it on my head pressed it, the battery was low, then the thing turned around and started coming again.” She says she couldn’t believe it. “I didn’t want to die by a cougar. It was out hunting, there’s no doubt in my mind.” At that point she just left her paints and went back up the hill to safety. She said it had no fear. “That’s what scares me. I’m out there all the time till dusk; that’s why I had my headlamp with me. I’m in my canoe too. It was coming from the water side. It’s not afraid of water.” When she called a neighbour later that evening, she learned she was at the veterinarian with her dog. The dog had been attacked, with a large gash on its hindquarter. Her neighbour, MC Davies, told the Observer that she thinks her collie/pitbull cross, Bella, was attacked

by a cougar. The dog had disappeared down towards the lake for a couple of minutes. “Something grabbed both sides,” she says. “On the other side there were marks but she didn’t lose fur.” She’s been to the vet for two surgeries and might need a third. “It’s amazing that she’s not dead… She’s a fighter…” Both Davies and Funk are now nervous to go outside. Funk called the conservation service. She says a cage was brought down, but was then taken away. She isn’t sure if anything was caught and has heard nothing further about it, she says. Ed Seitz, acting sergeant for the North Okanagan Conservation Officer Service, said he checked with one of the conservation officers out of Vernon who recalls the report of a sighting but did not

Carol Funk recounts her encounter on Aug. 25 with a cougar on the beach near her Tappen home. set a trap. Seitz said the conservation officers have been very busy because of the wildfires so no more details are available. He said usually if a cougar gets a dog, it will kill it quickly. Asked about safety tips regarding cougars, Seitz says: “The best thing is to back away slowly and appear as large as possible. Take rocks or a stick to throw, make yourself as threatening as possible. The worst thing to do is to start running away as

then you’re acting like a deer. Also keep your hands up.” If you’re attacked by a cougar, “fight back with everything you have. They’re not used to their prey fighting.” Regarding the cougar appearing to be black, Frank Ritcey, provincial co-ordinator of Wildsafe BC, says there has never been a verified record of a black or melanistic cougar. “Quite often, if a cougar has been swimming, its fur will appear to be very dark.”

Prepare to dine like royalty, but get your tickets soon. The Arts Council for the South Shuswap hosts a fundraising dinner, dance and auction on Saturday, Sept. 16 at the Rustic Wedding venue in Notch Hill. Karen Brown, arts council administrator, says longtime Notch Hill resident Karen Walters and her team at Rustic Wedding are very strong supporters of community. “Karen, a strong supporter of the arts, came to me last year offering her venue to host our fundraiser…,” says Brown. “One can only get to experience the venue if they are invited to a wedding and Karen thought this would be a great way to reach out to the community to invite them up to the grounds to see their lit-

Complementing the charcuterie will be local bannock and artisan breads. Members of the Little Shuswap Indian Band will showcase their cottonwood dugout canoe and offer a traditional welcome and blessing. Popular homegrown recording artists Jesse Mast and Megan Abel will entertain guests during the wine and charcuterie from 6 to 7:30. At that time, guests will move into the beautiful wedding ‘barn’ area for dinner. The four-course meal includes blackberry, brie and thyme tarts, salad greens with berries, nuts, goat cheese,

maple butter roast of pork with tri-colour potatoes, a cornucopia of roasted root vegetables, topped off with a warm apple crumble with salted caramel ice cream. “You will note that the dinner is very Canadian and carries a fall theme,” Brown says. “The meal will be served ‘family style’ on unique wine-barrel long boards.” Guests may then take part in a live auction of artist and artisan donations, and hope to win the 50/50 draw or the Westjet Gift of Flight raffle. “Westjet, always a strong supporter of children’s programming, gave our organization a Gift of Flight, meaning we were awarded two tickets to anywhere in the world Westjet flies,” adds Brown, noting only 200 tickets at $50 each are available and the arts

North Korea’s nuclear weapons GLOBAL VIEWS Gwynne Dyer The last time when North Korean nuclear weapons might have been headed off by diplomacy was 15-20 years ago, when there was a deal freezing North Korean work on nuclear weapons, and then one stopping the country’s work on long-range ballistic missiles. If they had been negotiated with the same attention to detail that was given to the recent deal that has frozen Iran’s nuclear program for 10 years, maybe North Korea’s quest for nuclear-tipped ICBMs could have been stopped for good – or maybe not, because North Korea has always wanted an effective deterrent to the permanent U.S. nuclear threat. At any rate, both the nuclear and the missile deals with North Korea failed after a couple of years. Pyongyang and Washington were equally to blame for the break-downs, resorting to tit-for-tat retaliation for various perceived breaches of the deal by the other side. But it was the United States that had more to lose, since it faced no nuclear threat from North Korea unless the deals were abandoned and North Korea’s weapons research went ahead. What we have seen recently – two ICBM tests in July, another one last month, and now what was almost certainly North Korea’s first test of a thermonuclear weapon (hydrogen bomb) – is the inevitable result of the failure then. It took a lot of time and effort to get Pyongyang’s bomb and missile programmes to this point, and it seems clear that Kim Jongun’s regime decided the safest way to test the new weapons and vehicles was all at once. He’s right. Stringing the tests out

over a couple of years might have given the country’s enemies time to organize a complete trade embargo against North Korea, or maybe even some form of attack. The safer course was to bunch the tests up, get the outraged reactions over fast, and then hope the whole issue will fade into the background. North Korea is much smaller and entirely surrounded by Chinese, Russian and Japanese territory, so any longrange tests are bound to pass over one of those countries. Pyongyang chose Japan, because it is a U.S. ally. But even its ICBM test on Aug. 30, when the Japanese government ordered its citizens in parts of Hokkaido into the shelters, did not enter Japanese airspace. The missile

crossed Japan at a sub-orbital altitude, and the Japanese authorities knew that it would as soon as the boost phase ended. The pictures of allegedly panic-stricken Japanese civilians in shelters were propaganda meant to serve Prime Minister Abe’s project for remilitarizing Japan. There is no good ‘military option’ available to the United States and its allies in the current crisis, even though President Trump says “We’ll see.” A direct U.S. attack on North Korea using only conventional weapons would not get all of North Korea’s nukes, which are hidden in hardened underground sites or moved around by night on mobile launchers. It would also call down “fire and fury” on Seoul from 10,000 North Korean artillery pieces and short-range rockets. A U.S. nuclear attack would probably

still not get all of Kim Jong-un’s nukes: North Korea is the hardest intelligence target in the world. Pyongyang may already be able to reach the United States with one or two ICBMs carrying thermonuclear warheads, and it can certainly reach all of South Korea and Japan. The political options for the United States and its Asian allies are equally constrained. Trump’s talk of stopping U.S. trade with any country that trades with North Korea is really aimed at China (which already operates selective embargoes on various North Korean exports). But cutting US trade with China would cause immense disruption to the American economy, and it’s unlikely that Trump would actually do it. Normally, when human beings encounter a problem that they cannot eliminate, they find ways of living with it.

It often takes a while for them to get there, however, and we are currently in the dangerous phase where people (or at least some people) are convinced that there must be something they can do to make the problem go away. The only excuse for radical action now would be a conviction that Kim Jong-un is a crazy man who will use his nuclear weapons to launch an unprovoked attack on the United States, even though it would certainly lead to his own death and that of his entire regime. If you truly believe that, then the right course of action is an all-out nuclear attack on North Korea right now. Otherwise, start dialing back your rhetoric, because you are eventually going to have to accept that North Korea now has a usable nuclear deterrent. You can live with that, because it’s better than fighting a nuclear war.

Film Society features fine films for fall Emily GarrEtt Cinemaphile The Shuswap Film Society is back in full swing with an all-new fall lineup of films from around the world. Starting this weekend with The Second Time Around: When Katherine (Linda Thorson), a widowed yet vibrant senior, accidentally gets knocked down the stairs and breaks her hip, she reluctantly moves into a retirement home that can oversee her recuperation. Determined to keep it temporary and not get too settled, it comes as a surprise to Katherine when she finds herself warming to the grumpy, yet considerate, Isaac (Stuart Margolin) and their relationship becomes the talk of the residence. They bond over their shared love of music and together set out to fulfill Katherine’s lifelong dream of attending the opera in Milan. The Second Time Around shows at 5 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 9 at the Salmar Classic Theatre. The eclectic fall lineup of great films also includes: • A Ghost Story – Friday, Sept. 15 and Thursday, Sept. 21 at 7 p.m. A Ghost Story follows a married couple (Casey Affleck and Rooney Mara) as their subdued lives are thrown into turmoil after he’s killed in a car accident. • The Happiest Day in the Life of Oli Mäki

(Hymyilevä mies) – Saturday, Sept. 23 at5 p.m. The true story of Olli Mäki, the famous Finnish boxer who had a shot at the 1962 World Featherweight title. • Paris Can Wait – Saturday, Sept. 30 at 5 and 7:30 p.m. Anne (Diane Lane) is at a crossroads in her life. Long married to a successfully driven husband (Alec Baldwin) she finds herself taking a car trip from Cannes to Paris with her husband’s business associate. • Call of the Forest: The Forgotten Wisdom of Trees, Wednesday, Oct. 4 Long known to those following permaculture and sustainable farming practices, Diana Beresford-Kroeger is the guru of how and why to plant trees. In this documentary she takes us on a journey to the forests of North America and reveals how everything is connected. • Graduation (Baca-

laureat) – Saturday, Oct. 7 at 5 p.m. In a provincial city in Romania, Dr. Romeo Aldea has become a success, even if he sometimes wishes he’d made it on a bigger stage. It is perhaps for this reason he is determined to see his daughter Eliza pass her final exam with a high enough mark to secure the UK scholarship that awaits the student with the top score. A series of increasingly sinister events culminates in an attack on Eliza that makes it impossible for her to sit the exam. • Tommy’s Honour – Saturday, Oct. 14 Set in St. Andrews, Scotland during the Victorian era, this true story follows Tommy Morris as he becomes the “dashing young man of golf.” Tommy is determined to do things his way, with honour, and it proves a challenge as even his own father is caught in the mindset of the class system. • Tulip Fever – Saturday, Oct. 21 at 5 p.m. Based on the novel by celebrated author Deborah Moggach (These Foolish Things), Tulip Fever tells the tale of

LETHAL DRUGS ARE out there

Find out how you can save a life. Leah BLain photo

Bernie and Sheila Onderwater invite people to come out and try square dancing at an open house Wednesday, Sept. 13 starting at 6:30 p.m. at the Seniors’ Centre, 170-5th Ave. S.E.

Square dancing for fun FRIENDS & NEIGHBOURS Leah Blain For most of his life Bernie Onderwater was a bit of a restless spirit; he never stayed in one place for more than five years. But then two things happened, he moved to the Shuswap and he met Sheila. “We’ve been together for 15 years and we’ve been dancing for 15 years,” says Bernie. As soon as she came into his life, so did square dancing. “I didn’t do dancing of any sort, I’m not musically inclined. I don’t flow with the music but you don’t have to with square dancing, it’s like walking and everyone can walk.” Sheila made him promise to come three or four times and if he didn’t like it, he wouldn’t have to come back. Now he is the president of the Salmon Arm Square Dancers and he works hard promoting the group. He carries yellow pieces of paper in his shirt pocket advertising their open house on September 13. He’s hoping for a great

turnout for the open house. “The first three lessons are free, then we hope you’ll like it enough to pay your way. It costs $3 a night for beginners. New dancers go from 6:30 to 7:30, then hang around and watch and socialize. You can come as a couple but there’s lots of room for singles.” Although many of the ladies wear the traditional frilly dresses it isn’t mandatory. “Even jeans are acceptable. Men generally wear western type shirts, but casual wear is quite acceptable,” says Bernie. “If I had to sum it up I’d say, ‘It’s fun, exciting, inexpensive, non-alcoholic - you don’t have to have a few drinks to get in the mood - and it’s very social activity. It’s good for the brain and body. There was one dancer in Enderby who was 103.” There’s not really an age restriction. Some of the dancers bring their grandchildren

along once in a while and they have a great time, he says. “Most of us are north of 60,” he says with a smile, “but I would love to get younger people. At the coast there’s a teenage club.” Bernie and Sheila have stories of the fun they’ve had, and people they’ve met in their travels. In fact, before they go on a trip, they do a little research into square dancing. “You don’t make reservations you just show up. We don’t shake hands, we always start with a hug. You meet awfully nice people across Canada.” They’ve even been on a square dancing cruise to Alaska. No matter where you go in the world, you can visit the local club because English the the international language for square dancing. The caller always does the calling in English. The open house is Wednesday, September 13 starting at 6:30 p.m. at the Seniors’ Centre, 170-5th Ave. S.E. There are also clubs in Blind Bay and Enderby.

Every day, people are losing their lives to overdoses in BC. These deaths are preventable. Many illegal drugs, including party drugs, have been found to contain deadly fentanyl. And even more toxic carfentanil is now being detected in BC. Not using drugs is the best defence — using alone is the greatest risk. If you use drugs or know someone who does, help is available. Learn about treatment, and where to find naloxone and overdose prevention sites in your area by calling 8-1-1 or visiting www.gov.bc.ca/overdose.

Walk sheds light on suicide Event sends a message of hope, healing. Tracy Hughes Salmon Arm Observer

Bringing the community together to help prevent suicide is one of Shannon Hecker’s missions. Hecker, program coordinator with the Shuswap Revelstoke branch of the Canadian Mental Health Association, is one of the organizers of the Suicide Safer Communities Lantern Walk set for Wednesday, Sept. 13 from 7:30 to 9 p.m. at McGuire Lake Park. The event, which drew more than 150 people last year, is continuing this year with a short presentation and a walk with participants carrying lanterns, many with messages of remembrance, resilience, peace, hope and love. “It’s a way to come together as a common city to acknowledge those we have lost but also to carry hope forward,” says Hecker. “It shows there is hope and that we can do more together for our children, youth and their families struggling with suicide.” There will also be information on supports in the Shuswap for those touched by

suicide and awareness of ways to help those at risk of taking their own lives. The Canadian Mental Health Association’s Shuswap-Revelstoke Branch also offers workshops to train individuals in suicide intervention techniques, which can help identify people who have thoughts of suicide, and increase their knowledge and confidence in responding to a person who is at risk. If you or someone you love is considering suicide, there are supports. If you are in an emergency, or feel that you or someone else is at risk of harm, please contact help immediately: Call 911 for help right away.

Hearing Aid Trial

“ Why do I hear but not understand? ”

If you struggle to understand, you’re not alone, in fact 47% of Canadians over the age of 60 have hearing loss. Your hearing difficulties could be caused by damaged hearing hair cells inside your inner ear (cochlea). When damage occurs in the high-frequency areas of the cochlea (where consonants are heard), speech may sound garbled and comprehension may become difficult. The right hearing aid could help you improve your comprehension.

Region’s drought ranking worsens Richard Rolke Black Press

The provincial government has declared the Okanagan in drought level three with very dry conditions. The implication is that a level three drought could have serious ecosystem or socioeconomic impacts, according to a province press release. As such, the province has called for a voluntary 30 per cent reduction in water use for both surface and groundwater users. Between June and August, Kelowna broke its record for least summer

rainfall, with only 7.3 millimetres, according to the Okanagan Basin Water Board. Penticton and Vernon are poised to break their own records for summer dryness and Kelowna broke records for hottest July and August, said the OBWB in a press release. This follows a record-breaking spring for most precipitation from March to May for Vernon (second highest ever recorded), Kelowna (fourth highest) and Penticton (ranked number one for precipitation), out of 100 years of records, said the OBWB.

KATHLEEN Kathleen, one of the four athletes on the Salmon Arm Bocce Team at the 2017 SOBC Summer Games in Kamloops, was surprised and excited when they won. She says it was special to compete as a team member and have the honour of representing Zone Two and Salmon Arm. This fall she plans to participate in all of the sports offered locally — bocce, basketball, club fit and snowshoeing. She is also hoping to compete in the Nationals.

INFORMATION DESIGNED TO PROMOTE AND ENHANCE YOUR WELLBEING

Healthy Lifestyles for Kids FAMILY CHIROPRACTIC Dr. Warren Gage If you are not feeling depressed today take a few moments to read the latest statistics on cancer rates in Canada. In fact, the Cancer Society now is predicting that in the near future 1 in 2 Canadians will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. While more and more money is being poured into medical treatment technologies, the best way to survive cancer is to not get it in the first place. And the way to be on the safe side of the 1 in 2 statistic is largely through a healthy lifestyle. I believe one of the main reasons so many people are not able to maintain optimal health is because they were never taught at a young age how to make the right lifestyle choices. This week I would like to give some tips to parents on how to teach their children to live a healthy lifestyle. The main areas that parents need to be constantly vigilant to promote, are healthy eating habits that include consuming vegetables

at every meal, making exercise a daily priority, getting adequate and good quality sleep every night, and avoiding processed drinks and foods. While getting your kids to eat large amounts of vegetables may be a challenge initially, persistence is the key to success. Often when kids refuse to eat their vegetables, many parents will quickly just give up trying. The opposite is what needs to happen. Parents need to be persistent and include vegetables prepared in different ways with every meal. When they keep at it, the kids will start trying different dishes and you will find they will begin to develop better eating habits. Keeping it interesting with a wide range of recipes will help a lot. When it comes to exercise, parents need to lead by example. I would argue that we live in one of the most beautiful places on the planet so it is not hard to keep the whole family active in

the outdoors. Find an activity each child enjoys, get out there with them and start having fun together! Teaching the importance of good quality sleep is imperative, and that goes for the whole family. Again, lead by example and have a time that all lights in the house are out. Teach children that getting sufficient quality sleep reduces stress levels and will make for a much healthier and enjoyable tomorrow. Limiting screen time also has a beneficial effect as research is showing the light and stimulation from hand-held devices can interfere with sleep patterns. And finally, avoiding processed foods and drinks must be done by example. The person that does the food shopping for the house is in control of what gets stocked in cupboards. If it’s not in the house, it can’t be consumed. The occasional treat won’t do any harm, but a diet loaded with processed, sugar-laden “convienience food” every day is a literal recipe for disaster. A healthy/fit/fun lifestyle requires patience, diligence, and time to plan and prepare nutritious

Climate change and your health Living Well The global climate is changing. On average the temperature of the earth is rising causing more extreme weather events such as the droughts, fires and floods much of our region has experienced this year. These changes affect natural and human environments (air quality, clean water and food sources) and also can have negative effects on our health. The impacts on health from climate change are varied and will depend on where you live, Impacts on health can include respiratory diseases, heart disease, heat-related illnesses, mental illness, malnutrition, infections and other illnesses. There are a number of things you can do to protect your health from the climate change related

issues in your area. Air quality: Check the Air Quality Health Index for your area. If it is poor, limit your outdoor activity and follow the other guidelines provided. Sun, heat and extreme temperatures: Stay covered, use sunscreen, stay hydrated, and watch for signs of heat-related illness during extreme heat events. Never leave children or pets unattended in the car. Food and water safety: Be aware of food recalls and boil water advisories in your area. This is important not just for drinking, but also food preparation, tooth brushing, etc. Report suspected food and water-borne illnesses to your local Health Protection office. Insects and disease: Learn more about disease-carrying insect threats in your area (e.g. Lyme disease, West Nile virus) and take precautions if you may be interacting with

potential carriers of infectious diseases. Fires, Floods and other emergencies: In preparation for environmental emergencies, put together an emergency kit and evacuation plan. See Government of Canada’s Get Prepared Website for tips. Fortunately, everyone can help to limit the negative effects from climate change by reducing your carbon footprint or personal and workplace greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Here are a few things that can make a big difference: • Consider greening your commute: try walking, cycling, carpooling or taking transit – it doesn’t have to be every day – using alternate transportation even once in a while can make a difference. • Reduce your energy use: switch off your computer, lights and other electronics when

not in use. • Waste less - want less: reduce what you use, re-use items and re-cycle. • Go local: whenever possible buy local foods and local goods. When you reduce your personal GHG emissions you’ll be helping to improve air and water quality in the short term. Over the long term, you’ll be helping to secure our water and food resources, reduce weather and temperature extremes, and help curb the spread of disease carrying insects. All of which will improve our health. To learn more about what Interior Health is doing and what you can do to lessen the impacts of climate change on your health visit our Climate Change webpage. -The author, Mike Adams, is a team leader with Interior Health’s healthy communities team

Ecotreats happy in Salmon Arm BuSinESS Spotlight Leah Blain Owners Karina White and Carlos Ruiz, along with their team, have opened their Salmon Arm location of Ecotreats. Those who have been to their Scotch Creek location will recognize the menu, but they have many new additions including several ‘grab and go’ items – grilled paninis, salads, fresh spring rolls, as well as gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan options. For now their hours are Monday to Saturday 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. but they will expand their hours in the fall. They’re at the corner of Alexander Street and the Trans-Canada Highway, former home of Java Jive. “We want to thank Salmon Arm for being

so welcoming,” says Karina. “It’s been so great.” She says city hall staff were supportive and helpful, and the people coming through the door have been giving them a warm reception, and it’s been very busy. “We’re excited to be part of Salmon Arm and to grow with Salmon Arm.” You can follow Ecotreats on Facebook or Instagram, or call them at 778489-5545.

Economic impact

Fairs are all about community building, but Ronnalee McMahon, 2017 Salmon Arm Fair Coordinator, says fairs are also an important part of the

local and provincial economy. “We’re attracting visitors in and beyond our city and they’re spending in our community. BC fairs spend $13.3 million annually in their own communities or local region.” Ronnalee says this figure doesn’t include the PNE, but just local town fairs. And BC fair visitors spend an estimated $17- $25 million on site. “The fair is an incredible contribution to the economy,” says Ronnalee. “The fair also promotes our local agricultural producers and plays a part in showing their significance.”

Alan started cutting ties for the Railroad which were in great demand at the time.

Having an identity crisis He was lenient at times. Championed the rights of indigenous folk exposed to racism. Judge Begbie was tough, hardy, fair-minded and determined. He wasn’t popular with the unruly miners of the 1885 gold rush on the Fraser River, but held in high regard by the First Nations chiefs, whose rights he defended. He became fluent in Secwepemc, and Tsilhqot’in. He told the government in 1860 that First Nations held aboriginal title that had to be recognized. He forced provincial legislation ensuring that First Nations women were entitled to a share of the estates of their white partners. At times he commuted the expected death sentences of First Nations prisoners. In our history, the Chilcotin war between whites and First Nations

SHuSwap OutdOOrS Hank Shelley What’s that you say? Change the names of some of B.C.’s legendary folk who helped promote conservation and justice in a very large way. It may have been in years gone by, but for the record, and B.C.’s history, it was men like Roderick Haig-Brown, crusader in hip boots, that inspired many Canadians through his many outdoor books and articles about conservation, and ethics in fishing, and all outdoors. Although his pen is stilled, his legacy will benefit generations to come. Roderick came to Canada from England at the age of 18. He settled on an acreage on the banks of the stream he grew to love, the Campbell River. He was a logger, trapper, fishing guide and gentleman farmer. Out of this rich background, he became an outdoor writer of many books. He was also a judge in his later life. Haig-Brown was also an advocate of crusades against logging companies that contaminated streams with DDT spraying back in the 1950s, and took on the BC Power Commission regarding a storage dam in Strathcona Park. His first love was fly fishing, about which he wrote many books. He wrote of ethics, restraint, putting fish back and, more importantly, about the beauty, fascination of rivers and conservation. Roderick Haig-Brown died in October of 1976 while tending his garden beside the river he loved so much. It was in 1978 that the BC Wildlife Federation requested to the B.C. government that a memorial and park be established in his name. A promi-

nent member of the Social Credit caucus reminded the party that Haig-Brown was sympathetic to the NDP. The plan was cancelled. But a fitting tribute to Haig-Brown by the California Trout Incorporated changed that. A potent conservation group, they vowed to have the park move forward. But change is inevitable and an aboriginal person wishes to have the park renamed. As Canada celebrates its 150 years in confederation, profiles of 150 Canadians come to light. One being the first provincial judge, Mathew Baille Begbie, also known as the “Hangin’ Judge.”

Some now feel the wrongs that happened 150 years ago should be brought to the forefront, and bring name changes The justice department in Vancouver is removing the plaque in its hallway of Judge Begbie, as is the city of New Westminster removing the statue of Begbie in its square. We are all of one family in this ever-changing wonderful world we live in and must all work together to have a better life for our children and future generations to come.

Columbia Shuswap Regional District PUBLIC HEARING: LAKES ZONING AMENDMENT (LAYDEN) BYLAW 900-19 What is Lakes Zoning Amendment (Layden) Bylaw 900-19? The foreshore area proposed to be rezoned is located in the Swansea Point area of Electoral Area E. The owner has applied to amend Lakes Zoning Bylaw No. 900 to recognize the existing fixed dock associated with Lot 4, Sec 11, Twp 21, R 8, W6M, KDYD, Plan 9181, which is located at 655 Swanbeach Road. The proposed amendment would add a special regulation to the FR1 Foreshore Residential Zone, which would apply to the portion of Mara Lake lying adjacent to the subject property only. The special regulation would allow a fixed dock as a permitted use and would reduce the setback from the west parcel boundary to 1.8 m only for the existing dock.

Police arrest driver at pit party RCMP Report Two 17-year-old girls suffered minor injuries after being struck by a vehicle at a party at the Skimikin gravel pit early Tuesday morning. The Salmon Arm RCMP responded to

www.saobserver.net

the party at the gravel pit in the Tappen Valley Road area at approximately 1 a.m. on Sept. 5 and arrested the alleged driver of the vehicle which struck the girls – a 17-year-old Sorrento boy. According to the RCMP, the young man was allegedly driving the vehicle erratically when he struck the

girls. The driver of the vehicle was transported to the RCMP detachment but was later released to the custody of his parents. The 17-year-old girls were released after being assessed at the hospital. The RCMP’s investigation into the incident is ongoing. Alcohol is believed to be a contributing factor.

MPs demanding action on invasive mussels The federal government is being told to take invasive mussels seriously. Conservative MPs Mel Arnold and Dan Albas have sent a letter about quagga and zebra mussels to Fisheries Minister Dominic Leblanc, Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale and Environment Minister Catherine McKenna. “We are calling on the government to recognize the ecological and economic threats that aquatic invasive species pose to B.C. waters, especially the Okanagan and Shuswap,” said Arnold, who rep-

Biking diverse landscapes ShuSwap CYCLING George Zorn A bicycle is a bit like a guitar. Both are inert objects that only come alive and flourish when put in contact with a human being. Both have the ability to concentrate the mind. Just as when you are performing, you tend to lose yourself when you are on the bike. For those precious hours that you are in the saddle, nothing else matters except the bike and the road ahead. – Gary Kemp, 80’s Spandau Ballet Band Guitarist and cyclist Welcome to the beautiful and diverse rural landscapes of the Shuswap-North Okanagan! Enjoy the sights, sounds and smells of nature as you explore over 1500 kilometers 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. Last week’s article suggested some local quiet, level roads with long sight lines for parents to cycle with their young families. The first article introduced readers to Shuswap Tourism’s Shuswap - North Okanagan Cycle Touring map-guide available free at local visitor centres. The guide will help you to choose and plan your first or next Shuswap cycling adventure. We are new to the Shuswap, we’re retired, up for being active. Where can we enjoy some quiet paved back roads for local cycling?

More trendy exercises

Water aerobics Swimming isn’t the only thing you can do in a pool. Water workouts are ideal for those with muscle and joint pain because the buoyancy of the water reduces stress on these areas, while providing enough resistance for a deep workout. Workouts may begin in chest-deep water and progress to deeper water for added resistance. Some gyms now offer aqua cycling classes that combine water aerobics with spinning. Dance and hip-hop classes ZUMBA® classes have been popular for quite some time. But many health clubs offer additional classes that employ dance to burn calories and tone muscles. Some gyms have developed their own cardio-based dance classes that get people moving to music in a fun way. Routines are fun and fast-moving, which may make them feel less like a workout and more like a social event.

Becoming a Métis warrior

Hockey Season Begins

CHASE

Martha Wickett Salmon Arm Observer

Laine Keyes will be debuting on television this fall, thanks to a herd of bison. Keyes owns the Turtle Valley Bison Ranch with his business partner Rudi Schiebel. They were approached by filmmakers who were creating a new documentary series called Nations at War that’s airing this fall on Aboriginal Peoples Television Network (APTN). The 13-episode series shows Canada shaped by First Nations wars. It “shows how for over eight centuries the First Nations fought each other and waves of Europeans over land, resources, power and survival,” states an email from the documentary’s public relations staff. “Three episodes in the show were filmed in Chase, and feature resident Laine Keyes, who plays the role of a Métis warrior in the series.” Keyes says filming on the bison ranch took place for two days about a year-anda-half ago. “It was pretty much raw shooting, they were using drones and cameras. They were filming the bison as they were on the ranch.” He says no props were involved, except for some fake guns, one of which he held as he was being filmed on horseback. “Long-barrelled guns, those things are heavy to hold onto… They had us do some riding on horses, running through the fields, holding rifles.” The shots taken of Keyes riding weren’t taken near the bison, he says, because they can be dangerous if you’re not careful. “They would have been in the background. You have to make sure you’re aware of your surroundings and not put yourself in a bad spot as they’re still a wild animal…

Laine Keyes from Chase rides as a Métis warrior in the 13-episode documentary entitled, Nations at War, airing on APTN. They’re great when you don’t bug them, when you let them in the field to do their own thing.” He was told he wouldn’t be in the premiere, but he isn’t sure which episodes he will be in.

Bison were heavily involved in First Nations history – history which relates to his family’s background. He said his dad’s side of the family is from south of the border – Blackfoot, Cree, Navajo, and he was born

in Chase and has been raised by his mom in Canada. Interest in bison is growing, he says. The ranch, which has been in the family for several generations, Continued on B2

Bison a draw for TV

Continued from B1 sells bison meat direct to the consumer. “We wanted to do something different (than cattle),” he says, so they went touring and saw a bison herd. “Right away we knew this was something we wanted to get into. The animals were really majestic.” He said they’re focused on Vancouver at the moment, starting a food box business that gets delivered to the consumer’s home. Bison meat is popular, he says, because it’s high in omegas, vitamins and is leaner than chicken. “The demand is quite huge – supply is isn’t up to it.” They’ve also been working with chefs in Vancouver, starting to incorporate tourism in the business. Chefs have come up and cooked dinners at the ranch for the public. The morning of the interview, someone called about filming a commercial. They were hoping Keyes could bring the bison to Vancouver, he says with a smile in his voice. The premiere for Nations at War ran Sept. 6 on APTN W, E and HD and will be aired Sept. 12 on APTN N.

Osoyoos Coyotes migrating north Scott Koch Contributor

Opening night in the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League regular season action sees the talented Osoyoos Coyotes travelling to Art Holding Memorial Arena to face the host Chase Heat. The date is Friday, Sept. 8, and curtain call is 7 p.m. The last time the desert dogs appeared in Chase found the Heat tying the game with threetenths of a second left and then winning in overtime. The sly Yotes have long memories and will be armed to the teeth with vengeance on their minds. Heat fans won’t want to miss this barn burner! Opening night is also Banner Night where the trio of championships will hang gracefully from the rafters at the arena. T:1.31” Regular season di-

vision champs, playoff division champs and KIJHL Playoff Okanagan Conference Champions 2016-17. So, this past Saturday the Heat hosted the Princeton Posse in the only pre-season match. Angst riddled the staff of the hottest product on cool ice, as the unknown of how the roster would perform was the question mark of the day. While it was only one game, the performance in front of more than 200 fans brought a level of relief and momentary calm. Chase scored three in the first to take a 3-0 lead, with Kolten Moore, Ryan Okino and Cody Turner finding the twine. The locals added one in the second but so did the Posse, making it 4-1, with Gavin Mattey putting the disk in the net. In the third the Heat popped, blasted

It was Jayce Schweitzer, Mattey with his second, Okino with number two of two and Brayden Haskell with the exclamation marker. Kayden Virgo played the first half of
