If a proposed waterpark can’t find a home in Sicamous, other options may be available in Sunnybrae and Canoe. This was Mayor Terry Rysz’s message to District of Sicamous council after receiving a letter from residents who are opposed to two of the proposed park locations. “This was brought forward to the Shuswap Tourism Committee meeting in Salmon Arm here last week and they’re looking at another location in Sunnybrae, they’re also looking at a location in Canoe, and there’s strong support for both of those locations,” said Rysz. “And I think… we’re going to have to make a move on this if we’re going to anticipate having this water park here. “I know it’s not going to be popular with everyone but every decision we make seems to be that way. So there is other interest. I just want council to know this – if we don’t take it on, it’s certainly going to end up someplace else in a hurry.” The letter was submitted by residents of Sicamous Sands, who are opposed to the floating commercial operation proposed by Bounce The Shu’s Tyler Bartley being set up near their waterfront properties. Sicamous Sands Resort Society president Janice Rempel states in her Aug. 18 letter that the applicant did not approach Sicamous Sands owners prior to making his Aug. 9 presentation to council. During that presentation, council applauded the concept, though it was suggested Sicamous Sands Continued on A2

THANK YOU TO ALL!

A map provided to the District of Sicamous by Bounce the Shu shows two proposed locations for a waterpark, both adjacent to Sicamous Sands.

Sicamous neighbours express concerns Continued from A1 residents would have to be onboard with the project for it to float. “It is unfortunate that the applicant hasn’t invested time and energy without consultation of the upland owners,” says Rempel, adding they learned about the project through the newspaper. “We appreciate the district’s stated position to ensure that this proposed water park cannot proceed without the permission of upland owners, Sicamous Sands. Please be assured that we will not support this initiative.”

Rempel goes on to list the negative impacts the proposed park would have on Sicamous Sands residents quality of life. “As Sicamous residents, we enjoy a quiet and safe environment. The amount of people, traffic, noise, discarded trash, vandalism, etc. will increase on the waterfront. We firmly believe there would be a substantial decrease of our property values,” says Rempel, adding how one of the proposed locations would have a “significant impact on wildlife habitat, including many species of birds…”

As of the Sept. 13 Sicamous council meeting, at which Rempel’s letter was received, council had no new information regarding where the water park might be located, though meetings were planned for later in the week. Bartley has also expressed interest in Sicamous’ public swim area as an alternative location for a waterpark. He also confirmed he has been in discussion with the Columbia Shuswap Regional District about establishing what could be a second water park elsewhere on Shuswap Lake.

By Tom Fletcher Black Press

The largest-ever study of residential care for seniors in Canadian history has given B.C.’s residential care mostly positive marks for the care of 27,000 frail elderly people in residential care. “For the first time in this province, we have heard the collective voices of some of our most frail and vulnerable seniors across all of our care homes,” said Isobel Mackenzie, B.C.’s Seniors Advocate. “What they are telling us is that while some are satisfied in some areas, overall, we need to be doing better, and in some cases, much better in ensuring the needs of residents are met,” Mackenzie said. “While most results are positive, 62 per cent of residents say they don’t get a bath or shower as often as they want, and one in four say they ‘sometimes, rarely or never get help in the toilet when needed.’” The current provincial standard of one bath or shower a week is not sufficient for the majority of seniors in care homes, the survey found. A majority said the food in facilities is adequate, but many didn’t find the timing of meals to suit their needs. “So apparently we need to rethink the rigidity of our mealtime schedules,” Mackenzie said. She said many seniors are concerned that their memories

The results showed seniors mostly understand their situation, and are able to rate their own health and physical limitations. “We have heard from 20,000 British Columbians – 10,000 residents and 10,000 family members – and together their voices send three strong messages – more staff, more freedom and

Council: Proposal would allow city to recoup costs for special events. By Lachlan Labere

OBSERVER STAFF

Their reasoning may have differed but their message to city council was by and large the same: shelve the special events bylaw. On Monday evening, council’s chamber was open to the public to speak to the bylaw created in response to the coming of the Sturgis North motorcycle rally. The intent of the bylaw, as laid out by city administrator Carl Bannister, is to give the city the ability to collect fees associated with special events with 5,000 or more participants, particularly in relation to costs associated with policing, fire control and municipal public works. Additional costs related to the bylaw are an $800 application fee for a special event permit, a $500 fine for not having the permit, and a requirement of $10 million in liability insurance. First to comment on the bylaw was Salmon Arm Fall Fair president Phil Wright. He suggested the bylaw would have a negative impact on the Children’s Festival, which has no funds available for these costs. Wright suggested that instead of the underlong, so for 700 pagesnumber of attendees, the bylaw focus on the more than 400 contracts type it entails and standing what work themselves, and that of festival and, for services to the unemployed how to put a bid example, the number of beer garfiguring out the privacy of B.C.’s citizens dens By Martha Wickett it willparticuhave. to about 70, so that clients together is daunting, OBSERVER STAFF may be compromised.

If it smells like sewage, it probably is. And it was. Maggy Davidson at Spirit Quest Bookstore and some of her neighbours on Lakeshore Drive have been living with a disgusting odour for months now. It comes and goes, wafting into their stores, making them nauseous, then disappearing. Davidson says she’s been dealing with it since October, Jacalyn Hays at Bella Interiors noticed it about a year ago. “I had got in touch with the city a couple of times a year ago about this problem.

Scam targets seniors

didn’t proceed. “These people are professional criminals preying on honest, loving seniors who would do anything to protect their family, including acting out of character themselves,” says her daughter. It’s a variation of the Grandparents Scam, where scammers phone unsuspecting seniors, pretending to be a loved one in trouble, and ask to have money wired to help them. The family has started a file with the RCMP. “These scams are constantly evolving,” said Insp. Gord Stewart with the Vernon-North Okanagan RCMP. Stewart said anybody asking for bank account information should send up a warning sign. “Check with authorities or with the agencies they claim to be representing,” he said. “But definitely don’t send them money.”

alone drive after consuming alcohol,” said the daughter, who did not want to give her name. The male voice further instructed the woman, in her 80s, to not tell anyone about the call or incident under any circumstances, or her daughter’s bail would be revoked. “He gave her his name, cell phone number and business number (both active Alberta phone numbers) and asked her to call him back once she’d been to the bank,” said the daughter. “He told her that if the bank asked what it was for, to tell them that she owed someone some money and wanted to repay them. He gave her the wire transfer details. “My dear, sweet, loving mother did as he asked and went to the bank to get the wire transfer forms.” Thankfully, the senior was alerted to the possible scam and

She picked up the phone and heard a woman’s voice, crying. She asked if it was her daughter. “Yes,” said the voice, still sobbing. “I’m in trouble and in jail. You need to talk to my lawyer. I need your help. He’ll call you.” Silence on the other end of the phone. A few moments later, the woman’s phone rings again in her Vernon home. It’s the “lawyer.” He is claiming the Vernon woman’s daughter – the one supposedly sobbing heavily into the phone – was driving drunk in Alberta, causing a car accident which resulted in her being incarcerated. Bail, in the amount of $65,000, he said, would be required to get the daughter out. “The story is every elaborate and convincing, despite the fact that my mother knows I never over-drink, let

Failure offers opportunity

There may be some value in the changes taking place in schools, but the changes to assessment and testing don’t bode well. Instead of acknowledging where kids are, new provincial tests will hide how students are doing. The new scale for the provincial Foundation Skill Assessment (FSA) tests says students are either “emerging,” “on track,” or “extending.” Why the elusive, vague words? Before the revamp, FSAs reported that students were either “meeting expectations,” “not meeting,” or “exceeding” expectations. At least with that, parents and students knew what the results meant. And if the province decides not to provide the actual test scores, that will make things even worse. The problem is not with testing. Testing is valuable to help students acknowledge where they are and where they need to go. The problem comes when a child, or anyone for that matter, starts believing that their identity is based on their achievement. In reality, a person’s value isn’t based on what they do, or whether they are an A student or C student. It is based on their identity as people, and people have inherent value. The best thing a school or teacher can do for a failing student help kids understand that failure does not define them, help them learn to accept failure as a part of life and see it as an opportunity to grow and learn. The reality is that the world is a harsh place, and people won’t always be valued and appreciated by those around them, but if students can learn at a young age how to face that reality, it could make a world of difference for them. -Black Press

Adams River salmon run in decline the gReAt outdooRs James Murray When autumn winds begin to blow, there is a hint of frost in the air and there is talk of bright, shiny rainbow trout making their way to the holding pools of the Adams River, my thoughts still turn to the runs and riffles of the Adams and casting a line to trout feeding on salmon eggs. Yes, it’s in the fall that something stirs inside me. Something draws me to banks of the river where I can once again breathe in the cool, crisp morning air, feel the sun on my face and enjoy that sense of camaraderie that comes with standing and casting a line with fellow anglers – sharing with them the experience that so many others have shared before us. It is in the fall that I cannot help but feel a connection with

the Adams and its fast flowing waters. How many times over the past 40 years or so have I stood on the banks of the Adams and watched for returning sockeye salmon to complete the inevitable and eternal part of their life cycle? Salmon that have made their way past so many hurdles on the Fraser River before reaching their spawning grounds. All I know is that I feel good standing there, knee deep in those fast-flowing waters. How often do I find myself reflecting on the past, contemplating the future? Things seem to make better sense when I’m on the river. Everything just seems to fall into place. And, when I happen to catch one of the bright, shiny rain-

bow trout that have come to feed on the eggs of the spawning salmon, I can tell you this much, everything disappears from my mind when I have a fish on. All I have to care about is the moment. It’s just me and the fish – the eternal struggle of predator and prey. The adrenaline rush, the excitement, such an experience is hard to express in words, especially to anyone who has never experienced fighting a three-anda-half-pound trout on a fly rod with a fivepound leader. So why do I fish? Perhaps it is in response to some primordial instinct, some need to pit myself against nature. Perhaps it is just a way for me to get away for a while from all the hustle and bustle and pressures of everyday life. All I know for sure is that when I’m standing knee-deep in the fast flowing waters of the Adams River, casting my line to the possibili-

ty of a trout, I’m happy and I’m content. Each cast made without a strike is but a prelude to the moment when I feel that sudden, heart-stopping bump on the end of my line. However, the river is changing. For years now, the sockeye numbers have been in steady decline. The Adams River sockeye run has gone from being the largest salmon run in the world to a pale shadow of what it once was. In seasons past, I used to just stand on the banks of the Adams and marvel at the sheer numbers of salmon that had come to spawn. Those numbers, however, are gone – perhaps forever. No longer does the river turn red with spawning sockeye. I can only wonder if the day will come when the sockeye numbers return to what they once were – or anything close. And there is plenty

of blame to go around. The real problem is there doesn’t seem to be a solution to the problem. Never before has the adage: “I’m with the government and I’m here to help” seemed more ominous. What ever happened to the recommendations made by the $37 million Cohen Commission? Surely, if there is a will there is a way? Time is of the essence. The rainbow trout still come though, at least for now. So do the anglers, although in both cases their numbers seem less and less each year. With so few salmon, the trout fishing has become somewhat of a hit-and-miss proposition. With the way things are going, there will soon be no salmon and then trout, and then there will be no anglers to breathe in the cool crisp morning air or feel the sun on their face – and no one to share that sense of camaraderie with.

Phantom unmasks new star Barb Brouwer Salmon Arm Observer

Eva Tavares is on the ride of her life. Far from the rural tranquility of her parents’ organic High Croft Farm in Notch Hill, Tavares is performing the lead role in Cameron Mackintosh’s spectacular new touring production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Phantom of the Opera. “It’s been such a crazy, awesome ride and I am so grateful,” says the 25 year old who has been with the show since July. Tavares was performing in a show in Toronto and working with someone involved in The Phantom, who told her she should audition for the starring role. As soon as that show ended, she flew to New York twice, the second time to audition for Lloyd Webber himself. “I had booked it, but had to keep it a secret for almost two months,” she says, of her successful audition, noting management had not released the news that the former principal was leaving the show. Rehearsals began in Vancouver this summer. “It’s definitely the biggest show I’ve been in,” she says. “It’s such a dream role and it means so much to so many people.” A big part of what Tavares loves about being part of The Phantom of the Opera is talking to people at the stage door following the show, people who have a longtime and deep affection for

Lloyd Webber’s production. “It’s spanning generations and it is still so relevant, filled with empathy, loving someone for who they are under the construct of who they show the world.” There have been significant changes to the new production that toured North America in the 1980s, including massive changes in technology that make things like the chandelier drop a “little more freaky.” Tavares’ journey to the Phantom stage began at the age of 13 in White Rock when she auditioned and was accepted to the Langley Fine Arts School. Once accepted into the world of dance training, Tavares says one of her instructors told her she should consider singing lessons – something her opera-singing grandmother had been encouraging for years. With a couple of performances with the children’s chorus of the Vancouver Opera to her credit, she headed to UBC where she earned a bachelor of music in opera. When she graduated in 2014, Tavares was already working professionally and “auditioning for everything.” After university, Tavares headed to Toronto where she concentrated on developing her acting chops. Tavares knew she wanted to do musical theatre and was thrilled when she won the part of Maria in an Edmon-

ton production of West Side Story. “My first union gig was in 2013 and since then it’s been go, go, go,” she says. “Then there’s the times in between when there’s nothing; it’s a huge roller coaster ride.” Currently in Boston, Tavares performs in six out of eight weekly shows As prestigious as her role as Christine is, Tavares does not believe it is a “golden ticket” to future success. “It’s a great opportu-

Spetz is a retired sled dog looking for her retirement home. She is a friendly, sociable, and outgoing dog & already knows some basic obedience such as “sit”. She is an active dog so needs lots of exercise , she may be a senior but she’s definitely not slowing down yet. Typical of huskies, she can be a talker and howls so will need a guardian who is ok with that (as well as one who has understanding neighbours). Spetz can not be in a home with cats or small animals as she does have a unhealthy interest and is prone to chasing.

Work-related stress is a major smoking trigger, but Combination Therapy can help increase your chances of quitting. “Combination Therapy is authorized by Health Canada and includes using the Nicoderm patch for ongoing support combined with Nicorette oral products to help control the sudden cravings that make quitting more difficult,” explains Dr. Richard Tytus, a family physician in Ontario.

A Langley man fled the scene of a collision, but was later found and issued a ticket for failing to remain at the scene of an accident. The two-car collision took place at approximately 6 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 14 on the Trans-Canada Highway at Sunnybrae-Canoe Point Road. Preliminary information from the Salmon Arm RCMP indicates a vehicle was traveling westbound on the highway when a vehicle emerged from Sunnybrae-Canoe Point Road turning to go east. A collision ensued and the driver of the westbound vehicle, a 34-year old Kamloops woman, was injured as a result. The driver of the vehicle, which turned off from Sunnybrae Canoe Point Road, then fled the area and escaped into the bush. The male driver from that vehicle, a 44-yearold man from Langley, was located some time after the event and refused medical treatment to a cut on his head. Police served him with a violation ticket for failing to remain at the scene of a collision. Both vehicles were

NDP forges ahead on farmland reform By Tom Fletcher Black Press

Getting rid of the two-zone Agricultural Land Reserve is just one of the changes in the works for the NDP government, along with serving B.C. produce in hospitals and restoring a province-wide Buy B.C. marketing program. The second zone of the land reserve to allow additional land uses outside the development-intensive areas of the Lower Mainland, southern Vancouver Island and the Okanagan is a failed experiment, Agriculture Minister Lana Popham told Black Press in an interview. It has created additional administration for the Agricultural Land Commission (ALC), without much extra activity generated to help farms in zone two, where average annual farm receipts remain low, Popham said. The second zone was championed by former energy minister Bill Bennett, in response

to frustration that rules to protect the Fraser Valley were imposed across the province. The result was Peace region farmers prevented from allowing oil and gas service trucks to park on their land in winter, and

Lana Popham AGRICULTURE MINISTER

next-generation farmers forced to tear down second homes built to house their retired parents. “I think the bottom line is there hasn’t been much effect at all,” Popham said. Popham met with ALC chair Frank Leonard last week, two years after he was appointed to implement the two-zone system. A long-time mayor of Saanich, Leonard re-

placed Richard Bullock, who was fired after resisting the B.C. Liberal government’s efforts to decentralize ALC land-use decisions. Popham described her discussion with the ALC executive as “productive,” adding that Leonard’s term “is up in the spring and we’ll see where we are.” As opposition agriculture critic, one of Popham’s favourite symbols for B.C. farm support was Vanderhoof hospital serving its patients fruit cups from China. She has already identified a producer in Abbotsford willing to meet B.C. fruit content rules to supply packaged applesauce to hospitals, and that is the direction she intends to take to generate more sales and processing for B.C. farmers. The Buy B.C. logo on produce, replaced by the B.C. Liberal government with a series of regional marketing programs, is coming back. Popham said it remains the most popular topic with farmers around the province.

Orchard icons opt for retirement

FRIENDS & NEIGHBOURS Leah Blain James and Harriet Hanna are never far from their work. Their home is surrounded by apple orchards and overlooks the store. But in a few months this will all be done. They’ve decided it’s time to retire. “It has not been easy,” says Harriet. “We were building on the generations before us.” “Twenty years ago we thought, ‘We don’t want to be the generation that loses the farm. We had a responsibility,” adds James. “Five generations of blood, sweat, and tears have gone into this place.” “We need someone who has a new vision to take it to a new level,” says Harriet, noting the business is currently for sale. “Our fruit is the top 10 of 400 that go to the packing house, and our galas and honey crisps are number one in BC. Salmon Arm is one of the best growing areas in the valley for apples. I think a cidery would be great. If we were younger we would do it.” That’s the key to the Hanna success, each generation expanded the business to meet the changed demands. Years ago things were different. “That old barn used to be a dairy barn,” says James pointing out the old structure. “Dad and granddad always had a herd of jersey cows, maybe up to 15 head. Dad had to get a job in the mill to pay the bills. He would work graveyard, get a few hours of sleep and then be out in the orchard.” Harriet (nee VanderHock) grew up in Salmon Arm, albeit on the other side and her life was all about dairy farming. “I was cleaning all the milk machinery on Saturdays and getting the cows from the

field, helping with bailing. Having to home every afternoon by 5 to milk was so tedious I made up decision I wasn’t going to marry a dairy farmer.” When she was 16 her mother broke her leg so Harriet had to take on the gardening and canning. “I made another decision. I thought gardening was one of the stupidest things you could do with your time and I was never going to do that. A declaration at 16 doesn’t necessarily follow you through life,” Harriet says laughing. “So I married a fruit grower - because I loved him. Now I love gardening, it’s an outlet for creativity.” But their romance wasn’t love at first sight when they met in elementary school. Harriet’s brothers used to tease James and when he tried to get back at them, Harriet stepped in. “A nice girl in a blue

Wellness

INFORMATION DESIGNED TO PROMOTE AND ENHANCE YOUR WELLBEING

It’s all stress FAMILY CHIROPRACTIC Dr. Warren Gage In our office we use our digital x-ray system to assess the health and alignment of the spines of our patients, but I have to be conscious to explain that my main focus is actually what is inside the spine. In other words, Chiropractic care is not just about fixing necks and backs, in fact the main focus of my Chiropractic care in our office is to improve the function of the nervous system. In addition, Chiropractors it the past would

over-simplify their explanations of the effects of the adjustments by stating they were just trying to release pinched nerves to allow the signals to pass more efficiently from the brain to the body. This is why people started seeking Chiropractic care to help spinal mobility etc. The latest Chiropractic research is now focusing on showing how spinal adjustments affect another part of the nervous system that is more related to overall health and

wellness rather than simply movement and pain. This part of the nervous system is called the autonomic nervous system and is made up of the nerves that control the organs, hormones, and function of the body. The nervous system’s role is to constantly monitor outside physical, chemical and emotional stresses and then properly adapt our behavior and bodily functions to respond to these stresses. One of the most obvious responses to stress is when our body goes into the “fight or flight” response. Everyone has felt this reaction because it is designed to take control of all systems in your body to allow

you to most effectively flee from danger. It gives you a shot of adrenalin, it pumps up your blood pressure and heart rate at the same time turning off non-essential functions like digestion and sleep to name a few. This is the best reaction to get you out of immediate danger but it’s only designed to last for a minute or two. Health challenges such as cancer and heart disease arise from people being in a constant state of “fight or flight” due to poor lifestyle choices and the emotional stressors around them. When this stress reaction has been disrupting sleep and digestion for years, disease will inevitably begin to appear.

This is why lifestyle and healthy living has always been the biggest determination of longevity and health. If lifestyle is ignored for long enough, the body will become exhausted and something will fail. Where Chiropractic fits into this puzzle is the adjustments are known to have a large impact in the nervous system’s ability to take the body out of the fight or flight state and back into the state where we can sleep, thrive, grow, and repair tissues. This is timely as in my 20 years of practice I am now seeing stress as the main cause of so many health challenges in my patients. My care has

transitioned to helping people cope better with all of the stresses we are placed under every day. Spinal adjustments help the calming portion of the nervous system. When people combine this with a conscious, constant effort to improve lifestyle and reduce

food purchases,” says J.P. Gervais. “In a developing country like China, consumers can spend up to 40 per cent of every dollar on food.” Those productivity gains can be attributed in part to plant science technologies like pesticides and biotechnology, says registered dietitian Carol Harrison. Esti-

mates show that Canadian families would pay about 55 per cent more per year on groceries if those tools were not available to farmers. “It’s been estimated our food costs could go up by $4,400 dollars a year and that would make it tough for a lot of families to make ends meet,” says Harrison. “It’s import-

ant that we have a safe, nutritious and affordable food supply so we can enjoy variety, which is really the cornerstone of a healthy diet. We have to keep those food costs down and plant science technologies help us do that.” Without plant science innovations, we would annually be paying ap-

Keeping Canadian food affordable (NC) Feeding your family healthy food year-round can be a challenge. On top of being crunched for time, facing allergies and dietary limitations, and dealing with picky eaters, you also need to worry about the affordability of healthy eating. Food costs fluctuate as a result of weather, global trade issues and exchange rate variability — all factors beyond the control of farmers and food producers. What farmers can impact, though, is what happens on their farms across the country. And that’s the use of modern plant science technologies that help produce more food more cost effectively. Huge gains in productivity at the farm level have brought the cost of food in Canada down over the last 50 years compared to overall consumer income, according to Farm Credit Canada’s chief agricultural economist. “Canadians spend about 10 cents of every dollar on average on

Council: Proposal would allow city to recoup costs for special events. By Lachlan Labere

OBSERVER STAFF

Their reasoning may have differed but their message to city council was by and large the same: shelve the special events bylaw. On Monday evening, council’s chamber was open to the public to speak to the bylaw created in response to the coming of the Sturgis North motorcycle rally. The intent of the bylaw, as laid out by city administrator Carl Bannister, is to give the city the ability to collect fees associated with special events with 5,000 or more participants, particularly in relation to costs associated with policing, fire control and municipal public works. Additional costs related to the bylaw are an $800 application fee for a special event permit, a $500 fine for not having the permit, and a requirement of $10 million in liability insurance. First to comment on the bylaw was Salmon Arm Fall Fair president Phil Wright. He suggested the bylaw would have a negative impact on the Children’s Festival, which has no funds available for these costs. Wright suggested that instead of the underlong, so for 700 pagesnumber of attendees, the bylaw focus on the more than 400 contracts type it entails and standing what work themselves, and that of festival and, for services to the unemployed how to put a bid example, the number of beer garfiguring out the privacy of B.C.’s citizens dens By Martha Wickett it willparticuhave. to about 70, so that clients together is daunting, OBSERVER STAFF may be compromised.

If it smells like sewage, it probably is. And it was. Maggy Davidson at Spirit Quest Bookstore and some of her neighbours on Lakeshore Drive have been living with a disgusting odour for months now. It comes and goes, wafting into their stores, making them nauseous, then disappearing. Davidson says she’s been dealing with it since October, Jacalyn Hays at Bella Interiors noticed it about a year ago. “I had got in touch with the city a couple of times a year ago about this problem.

Regional hockey centre opens Jim Elliot Salmon Arm Observer

Salmon Arm is cementing its reputation as a hockey hub. BC Hockey officially opened their new Okanagan Regional Centre at the Shaw Centre on Sept. 15. The centre will assist with administration, coach development and other aspects of operating the 25 minor hockey associations and more than 300 teams in the Okanagan Mainline region. “We’re extremely happy to have BC Hockey here with their inaugural regional centre – our facility has a long-standing relationship with BC Hockey dating back to 2002 and 2003 when we first started hosting their high-performance events,” said Dale Berger, general manager of the Shuswap Recreation Society at the grand opening of the centre. “This was just a perfect fit. We know that we have a lot of our high-performance events here. We get treated royally. We know it’s a good location to serve the Okanagan,” said Randy Henderson, chair of BC Hockey.

“All the way around it just couldn’t be a better fit for us.” Henderson said the centre and its newly-hired manager, George Cochrane, will be responsible for coordinating coach clinics, officiating clinics and registrar seminars to help keep the minor hockey associations in the region running smoothly. He added the centre would also be important in resolving disciplinary matters. Salmon Arm already hosts several BC Hockey elite programs, including the U16 BC cup, but Henderson said additional BC Hockey events are a possible spin-off of the centre being located at the Shaw Centre. BC Hockey CEO Barry Petrachenko agreed, adding the centre may bring more hockey skills development programs to Salmon Arm. “Any opportunity that we have to run something in the Okanagan, it makes sense to run it out of our office,” he said. “Everything we need to run a camp or an event is here.” The centre is the first of its kind in the province. If it succeeds,

Representatives, from BC Hockey, Hockey Canada, the City of Salmon Arm and the Shuswap Recreation Society open the BC Hockey Okanagan Regional Centre on Friday, Sept. 15. Henderson says it could serve as a model for other regions. “The next location that we’ll probably be looking at is somewhere in the North,” he said. Petrachenko said BC Hockey’s previous history with Salmon Arm and how welcoming the

city was to the proposed centre helped in the decision of opening it here. “What really stuck out in Salmon Arm was the tie with minor hockey, the tie with the community and that the city wants us here,” he said.

Matriarchs to lead caravan trip The Wild Salmon Caravan will launch its third annual journey in Vancouver on Saturday, Oct. 7, ending up in Chase on Thursday, Oct. 12. The caravan will make several stops as it follows the wild salmon from the Salish Seas to Secwepemcul’ecw territory. It will be led this year by Salish matri-

archs from Indigenous communities all along the route from Vancouver to the Adams River. The caravan will honour the spirit of wild salmon with festive parades, ceremonies, traditional feasts and music in Coastal and Interior Salish communities including Kamloops and Chase.

The Wild Salmon Caravan is working with Indigenous people, community groups, artists and environmental health organizations to bring people together as they follow wild salmon home to the streams, lakes and rivers where they were born in some of the world’s best salmon spawning grounds.

“Wild salmon are our most important Indigenous food and cultural and ecological keystone species in the forests, fields and waterways,” says Secwepemc matriarch Bernice Heather. “We invite everyone to come out in full colour to show your love and appreciation for wild salmon as we travel

from the Salish Seas to Secwepemcul’ecw – the land where the water flows from the highest mountains, through the rivers on its way to the ocean.”

The Chase Rotary would like to thank all the sponsors who contributed prizes for our 14th Annual Golf Tournament. Proceeds from the tournament went towards the Chase Literacy Program. Special thanks to Shuswap Extreme who supplied the hole in one prize.

Rough start to 2017-18 campaign The Chase Heat are early into the regular season and after four tilts, sit at 1-3 in the win-loss column. Going into the year, staff knew that last year’s success put a bull’s-eye on the backs of this year’s squad. Led by a veteran group of 20-year-olds, captain Grady Musgrave and assistants Kolten Moore, Zachary Fournier and Pat Brady, the rookie-laden bunch are receiving an early education in what it takes to play at the junior level. Three of the four contests have been against the cream of their divisions, the Osoyoos Coyotes in the Okanagan and two eventful games versus the Doug Birk’s Revelstoke Grizzlies. The lone victory was a come-from-behind struggle versus the Kamloops Storm. This past weekend, the Heat motored down the ribbon of asphalt to Memorial Arena to meet the Storm. The ’Loops lads got on the board first, but power forward Fournier, shorthanded, was assisted by rookie Jayce Schweizer and tied up the ice capades. In the second, Garret Watson popped in a goahead goal from Josh Bourne and Kaden Black. But Kamloops counted three to take the lead away. After 40 minutes, it was 4-2. The third was all Heat, as head coach Brad Fox shortened the bench and went with a veteran presence. It was Fournier, with his second from Bourne and Black, then Colton Nikiforuk on the power play from Brett Alexander and Schweizer, and Bourne from Ryan Okino and Grady Musgrave. The icing on the victory was from Black, with helpers from Musgrave and Okino. The last three were scored in a span of 24 seconds! It was a 6-4 score for the year’s first win. Saturday night, Sept. 16, on Rhonda Kenoras Tribute Night, found 425 fans dazed

and confused from the disconnected play being displayed. The visiting Grizzlies sought a second victory in a week off the locals and they wouldn’t be denied. They popped in a pair in the first, and in the second scoring-machine Bourne flipped in a power-play goal from Fournier and Evan Hughes. However, the Bears from the Stoke added a pair for a 4-1 lead. In the third, Nikiforuk got his second of the year from Pat Brady and Black. Then the Grizzlies added another pair, before Black, from Nikiforuk and Lucas Smith in the last minute, attempted to make the score respectable. The Bears trundled home with a 6-3 win under their belts, leading

Mara and Grindrod: Where farming is a way of life shusWap passion Jim Cooperman The cozy, unincorporated communities of Mara and Grindrod are nestled into the picturesque lower Shuswap River Valley, where the meandering placid river, green pastures and fields of corn and alfalfa dominate the landscape. Although most of the agricultural income in the valley comes from dairy farming, the diversity is increasing yearly as new crops are being grown in the rich soil, including organic vegetables, blueberries and grapes. History is well preserved in the tiny hamlet of Mara, with its 106-year old community hall that has been lovingly cared for by the Mara Musical and Athletic Association. Yearly events include potluck dinners, fall harvest celebrations, auctions and Christmas bazaars. Some of

the funds raised support scholarships for local students. By contract, Grindrod’s community hall was built just four years ago with a significant amount of volunteer help and local support in the riverside park where there is a playground, ball field and sandy beach. In addition to monthly pancake breakfasts, seniors’ luncheons and coffee houses, there are two increasingly popular summer events. In mid-July, the community hosts Grindrod Days that includes a tug-of-war contest, antique car and tractor displays, axe throwing, a photography contest and kids games and activities. Other popular events include the classic motorcycle and car shows sponsored by the Riverfront Pub. This year was the eighth annual Grin-

community is the Blue Goose Cattle Company, which operates a finishing lot and abattoir that processes both premium and certified organic beef from ranches across the province. Also on Monk Road, is Robertson Mountain Harvest that now runs the Baccata Ridge Winery. Their newly built, quaint tasting cabin is open daily in the summer. A new addition to the Grindrod scene is Farmer John’s Market, which is adjacent to a new, high-tech dairy barn where the cows are milked by robots. The spacious store features local products including pasture raised pork, organic chicken and fresh fruits, milk, eggs and cheese. Farmer John deDood offers tours of the barn, which has been certified by the SPCA to ensure the cows are well looked after. Each of the 106 cows is milked when it wants to, while enjoying a ration of grain and the cows appreciate the

drod Garlic Festival, which features locally grown garlic and produce, artisans, contests, art exhibits and live music and entertainment. The festival has grown significantly from just 20 vendors the first year to 100 vendors this year. One of the most popular activities is the garlic eating competition and afterwards, competitors can try out the bad-breathilyzer to determine how garlicky their breath really is! One cannot miss the area’s largest employer, Sure-Crop Feeds, with its tall silos and new office building adjacent to the highway. Founded in 1957 by David and Dwayne Couch, the company brings in grain from as far away as Manitoba and Minnesota to produce a variety of agricultural feeds for dairy cows, poultry and other livestock. The plant utilizes natural gas to heat the high-pressure steam used to bind the ground-up grain into pellets. Another major employer in the

Rotary adds cheque to ride A total of RCMP officers and staff rode into Chase on Friday, Sept. 15 at noon as part of their fundraiser called Cops for Kids. The group was riding bicycles from Salmon Arm through Chase to Kamloops. They have been on tour throughout the Okanagan for the past two weeks and still had a week to go. The Chase Rotary

Club partnered with Safety Mart and Subway to provide fruit, vegetables and sandwiches for the riders and their support team. Local hero, Cody Chase from Pritchard, led the riders from the community hall to Haldane on his three-wheeler and the group was greeted by a throng of students as they rode in for lunch.

Rotarian Jacquie Everett had prepared homemade soup and apparently the riders had been told about her soup prior to their arrival, so many opted for her home-cooking before delving into the sandwiches or fruit. The Cops for Kids ride is to raise funds for kids who need medical treatments when high costs are not covered

by medical services or are not able to be covered by parents or families. The Rotary Club of Chase made a $500 contribution to the program. Appreciation goes out to the partners and Haldane Elementary for their contributions and to Rotarians John Durning, Eileen Enevold and Doug and Jacquie Everett.

Festival celebrates fungi Lachlan Labere Eagle Valley News

It is said that of the approximately three million species of fungi in the world, only 25 per cent are edible – and only a small percentage of those are truly pleasing to the palate. These more flavourful fungi will be key ingredients in dishes served up at the Red Barn in Sicamous this weekend for Fungi Fest. Brothers Pub and Moose Mulligan’s will also be hosting Fungi Fest participants throughout the weekend. Friday includes a Stroll the Taste of Sicamous presentation at

4 p.m., with a beverage garden opening at 5 and dinner at 6 ($15 per person). Saturday’s edible-oriented offerings at the Red Barn include cooking demonstrations at 4 p.m. Food, including mushroom-themed meals, will also be served during the weekend by Wild & Co.’s Andy Reese. Vernon’s Happy Buddha Belly food truck, featuring a flavourful array of vegetarian/vegan cuisine, will also be onsite. Fungi Fest organizer Deb Heap welcomes locals to stop by the Red Barn to try out any of these edible adventures, noting you don’t have to be committed to the whole festival to do so.

Mycologist Paul Kroeger is one of the experts returning to host this year’s Fungi Fest in Sicamous, Sept. 22-24. “The Fungi Festival is a wonderful opportunity to go on mushroom foraging trips with renowned experts, but it is also a chance for locals to come down and take advantage of all the great things going on at the Red Barn,” said Heap. “The festival

is open to the public. You can browse the displays, talk to an expert, check out the yummy food available for sale, listen to music, have a beverage, sit in on a workshop. You don’t want to miss it.” For more Fungi Fest information, visit www. fungifestival.com.

Witnessing coastal change It’s Showtime! ShuSWap outdoorS Hank Shelley In March 1778, Capt. James Cook sailed his ship, the Resolution, along the mist-shrouded shores of the B.C. coast to Nootka Sound. Cook was the first European to set foot in what is now British Columbia. He and his crew spent almost a month in the sound, and had cordial relations with Chief Maquinna, and the Nootka people. Cook required tall straight timbers for his masts, fresh drinking water, but was also worried about scurvy amongst the crew. For this he insisted the ship’s doctor brew spruce needle tea. As well, aboard ship salt beef and biscuit were the order of the day but, Cook tried to ob-

tain fresh fruits and other foods high in vitamins to ward off scurvy. Cook was not alone, as the Spanish had heard of the boundless number of sea otters, rich timber values, and possible new lands for Spain. Capt. Perez set sail in 1774, and on the 18th of July arrived in the Queen Charlotte Islands. How beautiful the B.C. coast must have looked; rich in sea life, whales, sea otters, the coastal mountains rich in untouched fir, spruce, cedar stands. Driving into the historic mining and logging village of Zeballos, last week, for our annual salmon and halibut charter with son Steve, who operates Island

picking off parasites. Its main food, jelly fish, abound in these waters at times. They are a yellow and white in colour. Also double pink hollow tubes cling to the fishing lines. It’s a very different world since Captain Cook ventured into B.C.’s coastal waters in the 1700’s. It’s difficult to predict what the future holds for our coastal timber supply as big forest companies have their eyes set on more intensive logging, even on Denman Island and other untapped timber, with B.C. Timber Sales siding with big business. Cook would be ashamed at what humans are doing in B.C. for greed and profit, at the expense of fish, rivers, streams and wildlife. But, as the saying goes, what will be will be and who are we to change things? Thank God for those who speak out for what is taking place.

Tides fishing ventures, I was astounded about the amount of clear-cut and heli-logging Western Forest Products is conducting. Off-road giant trucks full of red cedar and fir grind their way off steep hillsides. Foresters will tell you regeneration will happen quickly from coastal rains, but mountains still remain naked from generations of timber extraction and profit to the U.S.-based timber barons. Heading out on the water, fishing for coho using coyote spoons works well. Ling cod were plentiful just off bottom. The main runs of chinook salmon were still well offshore, but we still caught fish running to 23 lbs. The ocean has warmed by a degree or two, bringing in sea creatures like giant sun fish, one floating to the surface beside the boat weighing in at about 300 lbs. Seagulls perched on its back,

Hyde Sawmill

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

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.

DARLENE FAY ELLISON ELLISON, Darlene Fay (nee Erickson) passed away at Shuswap Lake General Hospital, Salmon Arm, BC on Sunday, September 10, 2017 at the age of 71 years. Darlene was born in Tisdale, Saskatchewan on November 24, 1945 and moved with her sister and parents, Gunnar and Martha, to Giscome, BC in July of 1956.     On May 18th, 1963 she married Ralph Winn Ellison and within a couple years they moved to Salmon Arm. She worked for the Co-op and then when Safeway opened in the early 80’s she worked in the bakery and as a cashier, retiring after 25+ years of service. When she wasn’t at work she never could sit still, always finding something that needed to be done. Spring and summer being her favourite time to get outside to ‘play in the dirt’, planting and tending to her garden. Visiting friends and family always enjoyed her hospitality, especially her grandchildren whom she spoiled by filling her cupboards with special treats. Mom will be remembered for her loving spirit and beautiful smile to all who knew her.  Darlene was predeceased by her husband, Ralph in November of 2015, parents,  Gunnar & Martha Erickson in 2000, grand-daughter Angela Ellison in 1986.  She will be lovingly remembered by her three children, Kimberley (Lorne) Fiddler of Burstall, SK, Brad of Salmon Arm, Tammie (Mikesen) Breakfast of Port Moody;  grandchildren, Brandon (Cherina) Clairmont of Kamloops, Joshua (Kirstin) Ellison of Salmon Arm, Wesley (Valerie) Reierson of Medicine Hat, AB, Damon Ellison of Salmon Arm, Azra Citak of Vancouver and Emre Citak of Vancouver. Great grandchildren, Ayden, Logan, Brody and Francesca. Sister Solvei (Larry) Richardson of Surrey. We would like to ask you, dear family, friends and neighbours, to join us in remembering both Darlene and Ralph at a celebration of their lives on Sunday, September 24th, at 11:00 am, at the chapel of Bowers Funeral Home.  Online condolences may be sent to the family through Darlene’s obituary at  www. bowersfuneralservice.com.
