‘Wild West’ shootout nets jail term Judge sentences North Shuswap resident to serve four years. Cam Fortems Kamloops This Week

A Shuswap man has been handed a four-year prison sentence for his part in a deadly 2016 shootout — an incident the judge called a “throwback to the Wild West.” Richard Allen Williams had been charged with attempted murder, but that charge was dropped by the Crown in exchange for a guilty plea to one count of reckless discharge of a firearm. The 61-year-old was sentenced in B.C. Supreme

Court in Kamloops on Tuesday. Court heard Williams and a friend, Darin Krawat, were out looking for another man, Clayton Hill, on Feb. 7, 2016. According to Crown prosecutor Chris Balison, the two entered Hill’s house through an unlocked front door at about 6:30 p.m. that day, masked and armed with baseball bats, but he was not home. Hill’s wife phoned her husband and warned him not to come home. Balison

said Hill then picked up a friend and took it upon himself to locate Williams and Krawat. The two parties crossed paths in their vehicles on a rural road in Celista. Both stopped and a confrontation ensued. Multiple gunshots were fired. Court heard Krawat was fatally wounded and Williams shot Hill in the neck. Hill made a full recovery, court heard, and no charges were ever laid in relation to Krawat’s death. Balison said the two sides

were in disagreement because of a “business arrangement” between Williams and Hill “some years prior.” Williams, who has no prior criminal record, was arrested four days after the shootout and has been in custody since. With credit for time served, he will have nearly 20 months left to spend behind bars. “I have a lot of remorse for this situation I find myself in,” Williams said in court. “I feel very ashamed for putting my family through this.”

In addition to the jail time, Williams was also ordered to submit a sample of his DNA to a national criminal database and was given a 10-year firearms prohibition. “The circumstances throw back to the Wild West, where Mr. Williams and his associate engaged in a shootout with Mr. Hill and his compatriot,” B.C. Supreme Court Justice Dev Dley said. “It is apparent that whatever dispute was at issue was treated seriously and with dire consequences.”

Kamloops-South Thompson MLA Todd Stone may run for leader of the BC Liberal Party.

Stone mulling bid for B.C. Liberal leadership By Cam Fortems Kamloops This Week

Kamloops-South Thompson MLA Todd Stone, whose riding includes Chase, is seriously considering a run at the B.C. Liberal leadership, saying he is in touch with party members throughout the province. And, while he has yet to enter, Stone is reaching out to members, positioning his background as a tech entrepreneur — and the youngest who would enter the race — and considering the leadership’s steep financial price. The B.C. Liberal Party has set a $600,000 cap for spending, a level Stone said serious contenders will reach. Those contenders must also contribute to party coffers beyond that sum, making the real fundraising need about $750,000. “The components for any leadership campaign are message, membership and money,” he told KTW. “If you don’t have all three in plenty, you won’t be successful.” Any successful leader will need to draw support from each of B.C.’s 87 ridings due to the weighting of the vote. Following the 2013 election, Stone, then a rookie MLA, became transportation minister as soon as he took office. He is now reaching out to members across British Columbia. “Where did we go wrong the last year or two years and what do we need to do to restore the trust of British Columbians?”

Stone said he expects leadership candidates to include former cabinet ministers Andrew Wilkinson and Mike Bernier, rookie MLA Michael Lee and, potentially, former Surrey mayor and current federal Conservative MP Dianne Watts and former B.C. finance minister Mike de Jong. Another Interior MLA, George Abbott, ran unsuccessfully against Christy Clark in 2010. Stone said he doesn’t believe odds are tilted to a Metro Vancouver candidate, noting the success of Premier John Horgan. “The premier of B.C. today is from Vancouver Island and he won the majority of seats in the Lower Mainland,” Stone said. “Why? He did a better job of putting a vision in front of the people of the Lower Mainland.” B.C. Liberal candidates must declare by a December deadline, also the deadline for memberships eligible to vote in the leadership campaign. Anyone running for the leadership will be required to participate in party debates or forums in Vancouver, Surrey, Prince George, Nanaimo, and the Thompson-Okanagan region and one organized by the B.C. Liberal Indigenous Network. Deadline for candidates to enter the race is Dec. 29, which is also the deadline for new members to join the party and vote. Party members will vote online and by phone from Feb. 1 to Feb. 3. Stone has not set a self-imposed date for a decision.

Shelly Reglin has become a bit of a local celebrity in Grindrod after winning $500,000 on a lottery ticket. The big win comes from playing the Extra on the Sept. 1 Lotto Max draw. “It’s a small town so basically everyone knows I won,” smiled Reglin.

“Everyone is really excited and happy for me!” Reglin says her win still needs time to sink in, but she looks forward to figuring out what to do with her winnings. “I still don’t really believe it,” she said. “I might fix my house or get a new one,

help out my kids, and maybe buy a motorhome to travel around B.C.” Reglin’s winning ticket was purchased at the Red Basket Food Store in Enderby. According to the B.C. Lottery Corporation, ticket profits,help fund community programs across B.C.

spirit runs on

Nearly four decades after his death, Terry Fox’s Marathon of Hope is still an inspiration, not just in Canada but around the world, with millions participating in the annual run that bears his name. Terry has become a symbol of the battle against cancer, known in every household. But there were only a few people there on April 12, 1980, when Terry, his leg lost to cancer, dipped the prosthetic replacement into the Atlantic Ocean near St. John’s Newfoundland, the beginning of his dream of running across Canada to raise awareness and funds for cancer research. It wasn’t long before Canadians were mesmerized by the sight of this lone man, running with a jerky, hip-hop gait on his prosthetic leg, setting a gruelling pace, his unyielding spirit driving him to run the length of a full marathon every day in weather ranging from blazing sun to pouring rain. The dream came to an end at Thunder Bay, Ont. after 143 days, almost 3,500 miles. Cancer had taken hold once again, this time spreading to his lungs. Terry promised he would be back to finish his run, but it was a promise he couldn’t keep. In June 1981, at the age of 22, Terry lost his battle and it was left to us to keep his dream alive. The very first Terry Fox run in Sept. 1981 completed his goal of raising $1 from every Canadian to help in the battle against cancer. The Terry Fox Foundation has raised more than $715 million for the fight against cancer since that first run. You can help Terry’s spirit live on by participating in the annual run, which gets underway on Sept. 17 with registration beginning at 8 a.m. at Blackburn Park in Salmon Arm. The run begins at 10 a.m.

Universe offers wonder and hope the great oUtdoors James Murray The past few years have given us some truly awe inspiring and wonderous astronomical phenomena. Some were easily observed with the naked eye while others required the use of a telescope. The recent eclipse of the sun by the moon seemed to have caught the imagination of many. Our early ancestors looked up at the night sky in wonder as well. One can only speculate what they might have thought of a total eclipse. We do know from archaeological evidence that the sun, moon and stars did play a significant role in their everyday lives. The earliest historical records of astronomical measurements date back to Mesopotamia of 5,000 years ago. Observations were also made by the ancient Babylonians, Greeks and Chinese. Many

of these early societies held beliefs that the affairs of man were controlled by the movement and positions of the sun, moon, stars and planets. Although astrology is now more or less regarded as a pseudo science, it was the original incentive for the mapping of the stars and assignment of names for the constellations. Astronomy today has become much more than the simply a mapping of stars and planets into outlines of mythological gods and magical creatures; It is the scientific study of the contents of the entire universe as we know it, with all its stars, planets, comets, asteroids, nebulae, galaxies and unknown wonders that lie beyond. While observing the night sky with the naked eye one really can get a sense of

wonder. Looking at the universe through a telescope, well, that a whole different thing altogether. All that’s required to “sky watch” is a star chart or map of the sky which will enable you to determine what you are looking at. You can download star charts free from the Internet. Once equipped with your star chart, you will need to find some place that is dark enough to begin observing the sky – some place that is far enough away from the glare of city lights. While observing the heavens above with the naked eye and a star chart, you may get an incite into how those long ago, ancient astronomers might have studied the night sky. It may sound sort of strange for a person of my age, but sometimes I just like to lay down on the grass and look up at the night sky above. It takes on a whole other dimension from such a position. It sort of gives you a feeling of being all alone, drifting across a vast universe filled with

planets and stars. Once you look through a telescope though, everything changes – a whole new wondrous world literally opens up right in front of your eyes. It’s even more wondrous when you consider the fact that the stars you see through your telescope appear as they were hundreds of thousands of years ago. What you are seeing is reflected light that has traveled though time and space for millennia until reaching planet Earth. What you are seeing may have, in actual fact, ceased to even exist tens of thousands of years ago. All I know is that, when I turn on the television, I see images of war and famine, hurricanes and flooding, the effects of climate change and global warming and all that we have done to bring this planet to the proverbial edge. When I look through a telescope into the universe, I cannot help but feel a sense of shame on one hand and a sense

of optimism on the other. We have done much to harm the very planet that hosts us as a species and yet, in spite of narrow minds, have also reached out into the cosmos and begun to explore the unknown. Ever since Galileo first pointed his telescope towards the planets, we have been asking questions and searching for answers. In the process of finding answers, we have managed to set foot on the moon, built the Hubble telescope and begun to send exploratory craft to other planets. We have taken small steps and giant leaps and all because of those early astronomers who looked up at the night sky in wonder and asked the simple question: why? We have, indeed, begun to go where no man has gone before. While I may never get to set foot on another planet, I can at least console myself with the fact that there is a new Star Trek movie coming out. I only hope it is as good as the last three.

Everyone is invited to tour the facilities, try some class demos, take advantage of some discounts and possibly win some door prizes.

And we have a few new pieces of equipment.” To contact them call 778-489-5551, email shuswaptotalfitness@ gmail.com or visit them on Facebook or their website, shuswap-

Pancake effect

Lenticular clouds have been regularly confused for UFOs throughout history due to the their smooth, round or oval lens-shaped structure. The clouds are not uncommon, but are most regularly found near mountainous areas and can appear singular or stacked like pancakes. This photo was taken in Tappen looking towards Salmon Arm.

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.

Some eco-friendly food alternatives HealtHy biteS Serena Caner Ten thousand pounds. That is the amount of food waste that was collected at the IPE this year to be turned into compost at Spa Hills Farm. This year, our school district is jumping on board, trying to minimize the garbage it produces. Every classroom will have a compost bucket to collect all biodegradable materials including food scraps, napkins and paper towels. As a parent, what you can look forward to not having to clean out half-eaten banan-

as and other soft fruits that have been mashed into your child’s lunch kit. On top of composting, classrooms will also have recycling bins that can collect aluminum, paper and rinsed out #1-7 plastics. Unfortunately zip lock bags, saran wrap, and the foil or plastic wrappers around most convenience lunch items (granola bars, cheese strings…) cannot be composted or recycled. They remain garbage. So this year, when packing lunches,

consider these more eco (and healthy) alternatives: Instead of fruit snacks or gummies: dried fruit or fresh fruit Cheese strings: slices/ cubes of cheese Granola bars: homebaked cookies or granola bars Yogurt tubes: yogurt in reusable container (note: yogurt cups are recyclable if rinsed out) Saran/ziplock bags: wax paper, parchment, and corn-based plastic bags are compostable Juice boxes: reusable water bottle Goldfish/cracker foil bags: crackers in reusable containers Other creative packaging options: Corn husks, paper towels, brown paper, 100 per cent cotton.

As a parent, it is appealing to buy conveniently packaged foods that we don’t have to prepare ourselves. But I’m going to let you in on a little secret: most ready-to-eat foods that are wrapped in plastic or foil are not very healthy for your child or the environment. One good option is to avoid buying those foods and train your children to make their

own lunches with what is available in your cupboards. Or challenge them to try a new recipe baking their own lunch treats! If we can prevent 10,000 pounds of food waste from going to the landfill in a single event, imagine what we can do as a school district over the whole year! -Serena Caner is a registered dietitian with Interior Health.

Just this week I had another child brought in who has experienced a long history of “growing pains” where she would wake up crying due to pain in her legs. When I have a little one with pains in their legs I always have to explain to parents that the diagnosis of growing pains is something that has been fabricated over the years when doctors cannot determine the source of this

night-time leg pain. I can confidently say this is not an accurate diagnosis for a number of reasons and the theory that it hurts to grow just doesn’t make sense. First, if it hurt to grow, EVERY child would experience growing pains and this does not occur. Second, in all of the children I have seen over 20 years of practice that have come in for help with leg symptoms diagnosed with “growing pains”, spinal adjustments especially targeting the

low back have resolved the problem. So what it going on when children are experiencing this very real pain in the legs at nights. In my experience I have found they have muscular pain from over exertion or they are simply subluxated in the lower back or pelvis. Subluxation in the low back not only impacts spinal movement, but

it also leads to nerve irritation. When this irritation is significant enough, it can begin to cause leg pain. How do kids become subluxated in the lower spine and pelvis? The list is endless and can start from day one with a traumatic birth. Later, as they grow up they experience traumas through learning to walk, bumps and falls, sports injuries,

and more significant accidents. Kids will be kids and these traumas cannot be avoided. SO, it is for this reason that we encourage all parents to have their kids checked by a Chiropractor with a special interest in pediatrics. Whether they are experiencing leg pains, or you are looking to just maximize health and function of your kids, a safe and effective Chiropractic adjustment is a great place to start. Dr. Warren Gage is a family wellness Chiropractor who can be reached at Harbourfront Family Chiropractic at (250) 8030224.

love, then explain to them how much better they will see everything with their new glasses. 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 hurting their eyes or their vision isn’t sharp bring them back to your Optometrist office and an Optical Assistant will assess the concerns of your child. It could be as simple as a minor adjustment which will make all the difference

in the world. Once your child notices that they can see 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!

NDP budget comes under fire from MLAs Richard Rolke Black Press

The NDP’s financial strategy is drawing heavy fire from the opposition. Finance Minister Carole James presented a budget update Monday, the first since the NDP took power this summer. “A lot of the announcements were a regurgitating of items we had previously announced. The reduction in MSP premiums had been previously announced,” said Greg Kyllo, Shuswap Liberal MLA. There will be a 50 per cent cut in Medical Services Plan premiums, with a goal of eliminating premiums over four years. For Kyllo, a major concern is the NDP’s decision to scrap the requirement that the carbon tax be revenue-neutral.

“The NDP is looking at all of the carbon tax to apply funding to their pet projects,” he said. In a release, the government says carbon tax revenues will, “support families and fund green initiatives that help address the province’s climate action commitments.” James defends the government’s approach. “Less than eight weeks after forming government, we have taken the first steps to invest in the people of B.C. with this budget update. We’ve made some immediate investments while we work toward our first full budget in February,” she said in a release. “We’re putting people first by improving the services they need and making their lives

more affordable while supporting a strong, sustainable economy that provides good jobs throughout our province.” The budget update includes: • $208 million for the construction of over 1,700 new units of affordable rental housing; • $291 million to support the construction of 2,000 modular housing units for people who are homeless and more than $170 million over three years to provide 24/7 staffing and support services The budget also calls for $472 million to provide an increase of $100 per month for both income and disability assistance, and a $681-million increase for the province’s education system over three years.

How to find time for fitness Continued from Wednesday’s edition of the Salmon Arm Observer.

Commitments to work and family can make it hard to find time to visit the gym or exercise at home. But the benefits of regular exercise are so substantial that even the busiest adults should make concerted efforts to find time to exercise. The following are a handful of ways to do just that. Embrace multitasking. Many professionals are adept at mult-tasking in the office, and those same skills can be applied when trying to find time for exercise. Instead of plopping down on the couch to watch television, bring a tablet to the gym or the basement and stream a favorite show while on the treadmill or the elliptical. When running errands around town, ride a bicycle or walk instead of driving. Cut down on screen time. A 2016 report from The Nielsen Company revealed that the average adult in the United States spent more than 10 hours each day consuming media. That includes time spent using smartphones, tablets,

personal computers, and other devices. By reducing that screen time by just one hour per day, adults can create enough free time to meet the WHO-recommended exercise requirements. Make it a group effort. Involving others can make it easier for adults to find time to exercise. Instead of hosting work meetings in a conference room, take the meeting outside, walking around the office complex while discussing projects rather than sitting stationary around a conference table. At home, take the family along to the gym or go for nightly post-dinner walks around the neighborhood instead of retiring to the living room to watch television.

instead of packing them on at local eateries. Finding time to exercise can be difficult for busy adults. But those committed to getting healthier can find ways to do so even when their schedules are booked.

Redefine date night. Adults who can’t find time for exercise during the week can redefine date night with their significant others. Instead of patronizing a local restaurant on Friday or Saturday night, enroll in a fitness class together. Parents can still hire babysitters to look after their youngsters while they go burn calories

Shuswap stars learn the steps Barb Brouwer Salmon Arm Observer

Dancers had their first lesson as a group in preparation for the Second Annual Dancing with the Shuswap Stars event that will take place on Nov. 17. As an example of the popularity for participating in this event, one couple had to drop out due to health concerns, but within days a new couple stepped up to take part in the event. Roxy Roth and Dan Murray will be learning the hustle with instructor Orlando Robertson. While Fran Burman will not be competing this year along with Dr. Stacy Kirkman, we are fortunate to have her daughter, Richelle Zurouski, along with dancers from Shuswap Dance Center, perform a mesmerizing showcase number that will set the tone for the evening’s entertainment. Along with a whole new slate of competitors, a new cast of showcase numbers is planned to entertain the audience. Once again The Waxmen and the Klister Sisters, a seven-piece garage band will be offering up a blistering array of rock and clas-

sic music for dancing enjoyment between competitions and showcase numbers. BC Sound will once again provide sound and lights. The organizing committee has been meeting to ensure the audience once again gets full value. A gala list of entertainment will offer variety for every taste – speaking of which, Diane Cadden and her team will once again be providing delicious appies and refreshments, along with a full cash bar. Although it had been advertised that pre-voting is part of this year’s event, it has instead been decided to have all votes cast at the event itself. This year, all ticket sales are being handled by Wearabouts and will begin on Oct. 2. There will be a limited number of reserved tables available. Full payment must be provided to reserve a table. Once all of the reserved tables have been booked, all other seating will be on a firstcome, first-served basis. -Contributed by Val Heckrodt, organizer, Shuswap Dancing With the Stars

Struggling to let go after loss Emily GarrEtt Cinemaphile With A Ghost Story, acclaimed director David Lowery (Ain’t Them Bodies Saints) returns with a singular exploration of legacy, loss and the essential human longing for meaning and connection.

Recently deceased, a white-sheeted ghost (Academy Award-winner Casey Affleck) returns to his suburban home to console his bereft wife (Academy Award-nominee Rooney Mara), only to find that in his spectral

state he has become unstuck in time, forced to watch passively as the life he knew and the woman he loves slowly slip away. Increasingly unmoored, the ghost embarks on a cosmic journey through memory and history, confronting life’s ineffable questions and the enormity of existence. An unforgettable meditation on love and grief, A Ghost

Story emerges ecstatic and surreal – a wholly unique experience that lingers long after the credits roll. A Ghost Story shows at 7:30pm from Friday, Sept. 15 to Thursday, Sept. 21 at the Salmar Classic Theatre.

Funds raised go well above par A profitable day on the links will provide for upgrades at Shuswap Lake General Hospital. “The Shuswap Hospital Foundation’s Third Annual Charity Open fundraiser was a resounding success once again,” says foundation board president Rob Marshall of the Aug. 26 fundraising golf tourney that raised $112,000. “We continue to be amazed and humbled by the wide range of support this event receives each year.” Marshall thanked sponsors, Shuswap Lake Estates and Askew’s Foods, for their generous sup-

port, along with the organizing committee led by board directors Rick Hirtle and Dave Barnard, donors, supporters and volunteers who contributed to the success of the event. A number of winners generously donated their prizes back to the foundation and they were auctioned off to add to the funds raised to support the conversion from analog to a digital format in X-Ray Room 3 Trauma Room at Shuswap Lake General Hospital. This will provide a higher quality image in less than five seconds, using less radiation. An added attraction

LYNNE Retired Social Worker, Lynne, is Program Co-ordinator for SOBC Salmon Arm. She finds the attitude of the athletes most rewarding — while competitive, they are supportive of each other; they really enjoy the activities and tackle new challenges with enthusiasm. The degree of camaraderie and support that the athletes provide each other should be emulated everywhere. Sports is great, she says, but even greater is participating with friendship and co-operation. But we need more volunteers; are you interested? If so, contact: salmonarm.sobc@gmail.com

Reading tutors needed One to One is a unique children’s literacy program that provides one-to-one tutoring to Shuswap elementary school students who struggle with reading. With the help of the caring community members, the Literacy Alliance of the Shuswap Society (LASS), in partnership with School District #83, is helping to build a path to success for children in our community who are struggling with their reading. LASS trains volunteers to work with students in schools during school hours. These students are identified by their teachers as needing a boost in their literacy skills. The program is aimed at the grey-area students, those who do not receive any other resource support directly from the schools (i.e. no designated learning issues) but are not yet reading at grade level. One to One provides these children with an opportunity to practice their reading in an environment where it is okay to take risks, make mistakes, and learn at their own pace. The goal is to bring

Last year, One to One ran at 14 out of 16 elementary schools in School District #83 with over 125 One to One volunteer tutors. The students received a great gift from their tutors – the gift of time and caring. If you are interested in becoming a One to One tutor, the commitment is 1.5 hours per week for 10 weeks. A three-hour training session and criminal record check is mandatory for all volunteers. To sign on as a volunteer or for further information, contact Kyla Sherman, One to One District Coordinator at 250-463-4555 or onetoone@shuswapliteracy.ca.

Viewpoint

Burma: Rohingya genocide What lies behind all this hostility is a deep-seated fear that Islam is going to displace Buddhism in Burma as it has done in other once-Buddhist countries from Afghanistan to Indonesia. It is a completely unfounded fear – Muslims are just four percent of Burma’s population – but many Buddhist Burmese are obsessed by it. The poor Rohingya farmers of Rakhine have little in common with the Muslim merchants of Burma’s big cities, but they are now the main target of the army’s wrath. This is probably because Rakhine is the only province of Burma where Muslims are – or more precisely were until recently – almost half the population. The attacks on the Rohingya, initially explained as part of intercommunal rioting between them and the

GLOBAL VIEWS Gwynne Dyer During the past 65 years of military rule in Burma, the army has killed thousands of people from almost every one of the country’s numerous minorities: Shans, Karens, Kachins, Karennis, Mon, Chin and many smaller groups. But the only ones who have faced a genocide are the Rohingya, and it is happening right now. Only two-thirds of Burma’s 52 million people are ethnic Burmese, and almost all the other groups have rebelled from time to time because they have no autonomy. Indeed, the original military takeover in 1962 occurred to stop an elected civilian leader from creating a federal state where the minorities would have some control over their own affairs. But the 1.1 million Rohingya are special, because they are almost all Muslim. The other minorities are all Buddhist, at least in theory, and the army only kills enough of them to quell their revolts. The Rohingya never revolted, but Muslims are feared and reviled by the Burmese majority. Now the army claims that the Rohingya are all recent immigrants from Bangladesh, and is trying to drive them out of the country. The ancestors of the Rohingya migrated from what is now Bangladesh between the 14th and 18th centuries and settled in the Rakhine (Arakan) region of Burma. They were mostly poor farmers, just like their Buddhist neighbours, and their right to Burmese citizenship was unquestioned until the Burmese military seized power in 1962. Since then, they have been treated as aliens and enemies. The ultra-nationalist military regime launched its first open attacks on the Rohingya in 1978 and

drove some 200,000 of them across the border into Bangladesh, in a campaign marked by widespread killings, mass rape and the destruction of mosques. Even then, their civilian Buddhist neighbours in Rakhine helped in the attacks. The Rohingyas’ citizenship was revoked in 1982, and other new laws forbade them to travel without official permission, banned them from owning land, and required newly married couples to sign a commitment to have no more than two children. Another military campaign drove a further quarter-million Rohingyas into Bangladesh in 1990-91. Then things went relatively quiet until 2013.

local Buddhist population, have escalated until this year they have become straightforward ethnic cleansing. The army does not aim to kill them all, just enough of them to force the rest to flee across the border into Bangladesh – but that is still genocide. It’s now well on the way to accomplishing its goal, thanks to a small group of misguided young Rohingya men who formed a ramshackle resistance group called the Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army and attacked several police posts on 25 August, killing twelve people. And what about Burma’s secular saint, Aung San Suu Kyi, now in practice the head of a democratically elected government (although one still subject to a military veto on security matters)? She denies that there is anything wrong going on.

Turtle Valley Donkey Refuge and Sweet Freedom Yoga, in partnership with Kristal Burgess Photography, present a unique event to feel good and do good: yoga with the donkeys. On Sunday, Sept. 17 at 9:30 a.m., the refuge invites you to support your health and well-being while supporting animal welfare by joining them for their first yoga with the donkeys event. Enjoy the quiet country atmosphere of the Turtle Valley while you practise gentle stretches that are appropriate for any age and skill level. Commemorate this special occasion with a short photo session with photographer Kristal Burgess, who will capture you with the donkeys in any pose you are comfortable with. The yoga session is $20 with an additional $15 for the photo session. Both yoga instructor and photographer are donating their time for this special event, so all proceeds will go directly to the donkeys and their care. Refuge founder Shirley Mainprize is excited to offer this special event. “Yoga offers so many people the opportunity to relax and we couldn’t be more excited to offer it here at the refuge so all participants can take in the relaxing atmosphere of the Turtle Valley and peaceful

energy of the donkeys,” said Mainprize. Animal welfare and human welfare are inextricably connected and the Donkey Refuge hopes that anyone who participates in this program will come out with a renewed sense of connection with the Earth, animals, and themselves. Sign up is available in the Donkey Refuge’s online store, www.turtlevalleydonkeyrefuge. com (class size is limited).

Heat to honour Rhonda Kenoras

PRESSEDFORTIME?

Scott Koch Contributor

Saturday night, the 16th of September, the Chase Heat are recognizing a fabulous volunteer and fan who passed away in the off season. Rhonda Kenoras was a member of the close knit Heat family and the organization wants to take a moment to celebrate all that she was to so many people. “Momma Bear” was always there and scheduled her life around “her” hockey team. The score clock operator at Art Holding Memorial Arena for all levels of hockey, a fan who followed the team to away games and a dedicated mom to a ton of kids. Please come out and join family and friends for this event for a very special person. This past weekend, the regular season of the KIJHL commenced, and the HEAT can only consider it a lost weekend. Friday night the 8th, the Osoyoos Coyotes came to town and they left with a hard-won victory. In the first, Osoyoos popped in a pair prior to big veteran Zachary Fournier getting the first of the year from Cory Loring and Ryan Okino. In the second, the Chase boys took a onegoal lead on a pair of tallys: Brett Alexander from Kaden Black and Colten Nikiforuk, and then Loring from Kolten Moore and Fournier. However, desert dog

The Chase Heat’s Gavin Mattey tries to get his team on the scoreboard with a backhand shot on Osoyoos Coyotes goalie Liam Aitken during a home game on Friday, Sept. 8. Cameron Welch picked up his squad and scored the tie goal before popping in a shorthanded unassisted biscuit in the basket. Alexander from Brayden Haskell tied things up again before the Coyotes restored the lead from Carter Shannon. In the third, Hunter Johnson sealed the deal for a 6-4 win for the road crew. Saturday night, Sept. 9, Chase hit the highway to meet up with the Grizzlies in Revelstoke. The wheels on the bus didn’t fall off but the wheels on the ice sure did. A frustrating night of inconsistent calls discombobulated the new version of the Heat, resulting in a parade to the sin bin all night long for both teams. The locals received 93 minutes in jail for a variety of reasons; none that helped them

to a chance at victory. In the first, the Stoke Bears scored a pair before Black from Jayce Schweizer and Fournier gave the lads hope. In the second, Revelstoke got two more. Then in the third they fired in another pair prior to Loring from Cam Watson making it 6-2 in a losing effort.

While it wasn’t what the good doctor ordered, there are glimpses of a very young and exciting team forming. Seven of the lads are 17 and two are 16, while the defence currently has only three veterans back, the fourth, Pat Brady, is under contract until month’s end as a forest fire fighter.

This weekend, the Heat head to Kamloops and Memorial Arena on Friday, Sept. 15 to face the Storm at 7:35 p.m. On Rhonda Kenoras Tribute Night, Saturday at 7 p.m., the Revelstoke Grizzlies pay a return visit and the fans will play a big role in supporting the 2017-18 Heat.

There’s little integrity left to protect in the legislature BC VIEWS Tom Fletcher During the past summer of political uncertainty in B.C., there was a lot of earnest talk about protecting the integrity of the Speaker of the Legislative Assembly. The legislature website describes the role this way: “The Speaker is neutral, responsible for making sure that all MLAs, no matter what party they belong to, are treated fairly and impartially.” This claim has taken a beating this year, notably on March 16, in the last question period before the spring election. NDP leader John Horgan was pressing then-premier Christy Clark on huge corporate donations to the B.C. Liberal Party, amid loud and ugly heckling, even by B.C.’s

coarse standards. B.C. Liberal MLA Linda Reid’s weak performance as Speaker was ending that day, and she apparently gave up even the pretence of neutrality. Reid admonished “members on both sides” to behave, and in a move that should have got him expelled, Horgan turned on her. “Members on both sides?” he snapped. “What are you talking about? They’re braying like donkeys and we’re quiet.” Horgan was right. A small thing, but it illustrates the state of the people’s house today. Which brings me to the new Speaker, suddenly independent Abbotsford South MLA Darryl Plecas. After the B.C. Liberal Party can-

celled his membership Saturday, Plecas granted a softball interview to a Vancouver newspaper. He allowed that he secretly negotiated a deal to become Speaker and help prop up the NDP-Green alliance so the people can have stable government. What a guy. Plecas is a central figure in the post-election drama. Elected in 2013 by his party’s brand, he had no hope of making Clark’s cabinet. Now as Speaker, Plecas gets a $50,000 raise to a cabinet minister’s salary. Plecas was repeatedly wooed by the NDP and Greens to take the Speaker job, and give their precarious minority one more vote. This would of course provide vital assistance to the new government to undo 16 years of B.C. Liberal policy, so Plecas rejected it as an unthinkable betrayal of the party and voters who supported him. And rightly so.

Plecas threatened to sit as an independent if Clark stayed on as leader. Apparently looking for an excuse to exit, Clark not only quit the leadership on the spot, she vacated her Kelowna West seat too. That’s two valuable gifts for the NDP-Greens, from two unlikely sources. NDP house leader Mike Farnworth handled talks with Plecas. He’s a hero to his party and didn’t dirty his

hands in the process. It was Plecas who misled his party and constituents to cover his tracks. And so this is how Plecas begins his term as the symbol of fairness and integrity. Interim B.C. Liberal leader Coleman, himself a chronic, bullying abuser of legislature debate rules, was asked if he could respect Plecas in his new role. “I respect the position, but not him,” he replied. Green leader Andrew

Weaver’s contribution to all this was to gloat, and to misrepresent Plecas’s action as some sort of noble gesture to work collaboratively across party lines. He accused the B.C. Liberals of “acting like high school students”

because they didn’t applaud Plecas for his betrayal. A recall campaign in is already gathering steam. It remains to be seen if Plecas will last the two years he needs to collect his enriched MLA pension.

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.

Remembering Loved Ones

www.saobserver.net

JOHN ARTHUR SIMONETTI 1949-2017 It is with sadness we announce that John passed away peacefully at the Shuswap Lake General Hospital on September 3rd, 2017 at the age of 68. Born June 14th, 1949 in Edmonton, AB to Charles John Simonetti, an ItalianAmerican, and Adeline E. Bourget, a FrenchCanadian. John’s father passed away when he was only 6 months old, leaving him to be raised by his loving mother and grandparents, as well as his tight-knit extended family in Edmonton. John graduated from St. Mary’s High School in 1967, earned a business diploma at NAIT, and worked in the industrial parts supply industry before jumping at the opportunity to relocate his young family to “God’s Country”, as he called it, a.k.a. The Shuswap, due to its striking beauty and close proximity to what he loved most – fishing and being in the Great Outdoors. John and his former wife, Maggie O’Brien, took over Foley’s Sales and Services in 1984 and quickly grew and expanded it from a small sharpening business into a busy sales and rental business, where many people came to know him as “John Foley”. In 1999 Foley’s joined forces with Cardinal equipment where John continued to work until ongoing health issues forced him into early retirement. A bright and kind-hearted man, John was always willing to go the extra mile to lend a hand. John is survived by his children: Alison Simonetti (Alejandro) and David Simonetti, his two granddaughters, Ellie & Hannah, his brother Charles Simonetti (Ruth), his Aunt Bea, and many cousins, nieces, nephews and friends. Sadly, John was predeceased by only 11 days by his loving cousin Jeanne Smith, and survived by her husband, Grant Smith and family. John’s family would like to thank the nurses and staff at SLGH, especially Connie, the nurse who gave us 6 and a half more years with him by saving his life, and Sally, the nurse who gracefully helped usher him on to the next. They would also like to thank Dr. Heunis for his amazing care throughout the years, as well as the Smith family, the staff at McGuire Lake Congregate Living, and the Shuswap Hospice Society. Donations may be made in John’s memory to the Shuswap Hospice Society, and memories and condolences can be shared online through John’s obituary at www.bowersfuneralservice. com.

ROGER EDGAR DREW October 15, 1929 - September 8, 2017 It is with heavy hearts that the family of Roger Edgar Drew announce his passing on September 8, 2017 at the age of 87 years.

Edgar was born October 15, 1929 in Kamloops Jubilee Hospital and grew up on the family ranch south of Kamloops.    In 1951, Edgar began his foray in to sawmilling cutting timber on the ranch and adjacent areas.  Edgar and Pat were married in 1953 at St. Paul’s Cathedral in Kamloops. They lived on the ranch until they moved with Rick, Wendy and Dave to Kamloops in 1959.  In 1970, Edgar and Pat moved the family to Salmon Arm to bring the family closer to his Sawmill Operations that were located in Malakwa.  He was a big part of the sawmilling industry in BC and served as President of the Interior Lumber Manufacturers Association from 19741976. Shortly after moving to Salmon Arm, Edgar became an active member of Rotary and was instrumental in setting up the Shuswap Rotary Club in 1985.  Edgar was dedicated to his community especially the United Church and served on the Board up to his passing. Following the loss of the sawmill operations in 1985, Edgar continued to be active in the forest industry until his retirement in 2005. Edgar was a man with a big heart and a huge love for his family and friends.    He loved the outdoors especially the next fishing or hunting adventure.  He will be missed by so many. A Celebration of Life is scheduled for 1:30 pm on September 16th at the Salmon Arm First United Church.  Condolences may be sent to Edgar’s family through his obituary at www. bowersfuneralservice.com .

He will be sadly missed by his sons, Donald (Denise), Richard (Ivy) and Cam (Marisa), his close and dear friend Marion, his grandchildren, greatgrandchildren, numerous nieces, nephews and friends. Over his years, Sid wore many hats: he was an able seaman in the Royal Canadian Navy, a policeman, a rope maker and gas and pipe fitter to name a few but he was best known as “Sid the Barber”. He was served with the French National Order of the Legion of Honour award for his contribution and dedication on the beaches of Normandy. Sid made such an impact on the lives of others, he was a caring man, and always there in time of need to help someone out. He had a great sense of humour and loved to lift others up with his jokes. Special thanks to the caring nurses, aides and staff on the 2nd floor at Mt Ida Mews. We are comforted to know he was well taken care of in his last years. A gathering for friends and family will be held from 2-5pm on Saturday, September 16, at the Sicamous Legion. Please come join us to remember Sid and share some laughs and stories. Rest easy now, Sid, till we meet again. Arrangements entrusted to Fischer’s Funeral Services & Crematorium Ltd., Salmon Arm (250) 833-1129.

WESLEY ALLAN CAMBRIDGE Wesley Allan Cambridge mostly known as (Wes) unexpectedly passed away on Sept 03 2017 in Salmon Arm BC. Wes was a compassionate young man who had fought his way through life. Who truly believed in unconditional love, although it was a life of hard lessons. Wes is survived by his loving mother, sister, stepfather and his large extended family along with many friends. Due the difficulties he had in life he became a soldier to helping others with their troubles, and leaving his own by the wayside. Wes was born in Smithers BC August 03 1993.      Not long after he started a new life with his mother in Salmon Arm.  Wes always had a passion for music, art and friends.                                                   Through graduation SASS 2011, and up until his recent welding course that he was about to complete, he became a father, and started a new path in life. All who knew him will dearly miss his beautiful smile, jokes, and caring soul. Thank you for being in our lives, you will live on forever in our hearts. A Celebration of Life will be held at Bowers Funeral Chapel Saturday September, 16 at 2:00 pm. Condolences may be forwarded to the family through Wes’s obituary at www. bowersfuneralservice.com

ALEXANDER SADESKY 1933 - 2017 On August 26th, Alexander Sadesky passed away peacefully  at age 84 after a remarkable life. Born in the Ukraine on June  17, 1933 to Anna and Stefan Sadecki, Alex excelled in school,  sports, and all things mechanical until the uncertainty of war  forced them along with his sister Ludmila, on a harrowing journey westward through Poland, to end up in Germany at the end of WWII. There, he frst met Natalie Baun, who years  later and a world away, would become his wife. In 1948, the Sadeckis immigrated to Edmonton, Canada where Alex  eventually became an engineer (U of A, class of 1958) and  later a manager of engineering for Edmonton Power. As fate would have it, the Sadeckis sponsored the Baun family to come to Canada and Edmonton in 1954 and eight years later, Alex and Natalie were married. Alex is survived by Natalie,  their 3 children: Teresa (Mark), Ron (Pam), and Greg (Susan), 4  grandchildren: Logan, Anna, Lucas, and Evan.  Alex will be remembered for his generosity, devotion to family,  and his extraordinary mechanical ability. It seemed there was nothing he could not fix or build. He was a gentle and fair man,  with just a bit of mischief. He will be dearly missed. A memorial service will be held at Deo Lutheran  Church (1801 30 St NE, Salmon Arm) on September 23rd, 2017 at 1:30 pm. All are welcome. The family requests that donations to either the Alzheimer or Cancer Societies of Canada be considered in lieu of flowers. Arrangements entrusted to Fischer’s Funeral Services & Crematorium Ltd., (250) 833-1129. Share memories and condolences online through Alex’s obituary at www.fischersfuneralservices. com.

Remembering Our Loved Ones

Salmon Arm Observer/Shuswap Market News JEANNE (JEAN) MARIE SMITH, (nee Rowe) 1954 – 2017 Jeanne (Jean) Marie Smith, nee Rowe, 1954 – 2017, passed away suddenly but peacefully on August 23, 2017 at Shuswap Lake General Hospital, Salmon Arm, British Columbia. Jean was predeceased by her father, James Rowe, and her cousin, Arthur Berube. Jean is survived by Grant, her husband of 31 years, her four sons, Patrick (Shirley) of Richmond, Ian of Toronto, Tony of Sorrento, and Trevor (Rebekah) of Sorrento. She is also survived by her mother, Beatrice Rowe, her brothers Robert (June) Fillion and Roger (Catherine) Fillion, her sister Judith (Dwight) Monea, and her cousins, Ronald Berube, Collette Kramer and John Simonetti (also now deceased). She is also survived by her grandson Keon Li, her God-daughter Alison (Alejandro) Simonetti and many nieces and nephews. Jean was born at Edmonton, Alberta, the eldest daughter of James Rowe and Beatrice Rowe (Berube). Jean grew up and attended school in the Strathcona area of the City, graduatated from St. Mary’s High School in 1972. After graduation, Jean worked for a number of years at the University of Alberta and also at several local businesses in Edmonton. Jean met Grant in 1985 and they were married in 1986 at Edson, Alberta, where Grant worked at the Yellowhead School Division. In 1987, Jean, Grant, and their two sons, Patrick and Ian, relocated to Kelowna, BC where Grant was employed at the Central Okanagan School District. In 1989, Jean’s family grew again as Grant and Jean adopted two more boys, Tony and Trevor. In addition to being a busy mother and homemaker, Jean was an enthusiastic school and community volunteer in Kelowna. It was there that the family became a full time foster family, providing a loving home to many foster children for over a decade in Kelowna and Salmon Arm. In 2002 Jean and her family relocated to the Shuswap where they owned property, and built a home on the beautiful shore of White Lake. Jean and Grant continued to provide foster care in the Shuswap area, however, Jean was unable to continue after 2008 as a result of deteriorating health. The Smith family operate Balmoral Farms, located in Tappen, Carlin, Notch Hill area, and Jean was an active partner in the farm until her death. The Smith family would like to thank Dr. J. Meisner, Dr. K. Golberg, and the nurses and staff at Shuswap Lake General Hospital for the wonderful care Jean received during her final hospital stay. Shortly after her passing, a family service was held at the Bowers Funeral Home, Salmon Arm and Jean was cremated thereafter. A Celebration of life will be held in memory of Jean Smith at 2 p.m. on Saturday, September 30th, 2017 at the Carlin Hall, 4051 Myers Frontage Road, Tappen, BC. Donations in memory of Jeanne (Jean) Marie Smith may be made to the Salmon Arm Woman’s Emergency Shelter, the Heart and Stroke Foundation of BC and Yukon, or the British Columbia Lung Association. On line condolences may be sent to Jean’s obituary at www.bowersfuneralservice.com
