Fire lookout may be torn down

Effort underway to keep refurbished historic structure as is. Lachlan Labere salmon arm observer

An effort is underway to prevent a recently renovated former forestry lookout on Eagle Pass from being torn down. The District of Sicamous, the Splatsin First Nation and Shuswap MLA Greg Kyllo are among those asking the provincial government to leave the renovated historic site as is, so it can benefit the region as a tourist destination. In a presentation to Sicamous council, Coun. Gord Bushell explained the former fire lookout at the top of Eagle Pass was con-

structed in 1922 for CP Rail. It was later used as a forestry lookout. Some time ago, the wood part of the structure burned down in a lightning storm, leaving only dilapidated lower rock walls and foundation. Bushell said about five or six years ago, a group of local “enthusiasts” decided to look into rebuilding the structure. They went to provincial government offices in Kamloops, and were directed to Front Counter B.C. Bushell said a government agent informed them that because it was an existing structure, they didn’t

Last summer, a group of locals raised money and volunteered their own labour to refurbish the historic Eagle Pass fire lookout.

Individuals now under investigation Continued from A1 “The policy for Recreation Sites and Trails, if it hasn’t been approved… is to burn them down…,” said Bushell. “I want to let everybody know there is a controversy over this site, and the two guys who actually built it are under investigation by the province for illegally building this structure. But they were told they didn’t need a permit.” Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations

communication person Jeremy Uppenborn confirmed the matter is under investigation. Providing some background comment via email, Uppenborn explained that under the Forest Range Practices Act, there is a process in which a “delegated decision-maker can decide whether the structure is in contravention of the act and would have the authority to order the site left as is, levy a penalty or order remediation of the site.”

Uppenborn said that before any decision is made, those involved in building the structure would be given the opportunity to present evidence and their rationale. Bushell said most of those involved in the lookout’s renovation are recreational vehicle users, adding the site cannot be accessed by motorized vehicles. “It’s totally a hike-in area. It’s going to assist the Shuswap Trail Alliance for sure,” said Bushell.

Foerster re-trial dates set The second trial for a Cherryville man in connection with killing an Armstrong teenager in 2011 will occur in 2018. Pre-trial matters in the case of Matthew Foerster will be heard April 3, in a voir dire. Jury selection will happen May 28 with his trial to follow. Similar to the previ-

ous trial, re-trial is estimated to take threeto-four weeks. Foerster is charged with first degree murder for killing Taylor Van Diest. The teen was assaulted Halloween night, 2011, and she died in Kelowna General Hospital the next day. Foerster was convicted on the murder

charge in 2014 but the B.C. Court of Appeal granted him a retrial in March. He was granted the retrial due to two errors in the trial judge’s 2014 charge to the jury that may have affected their decision to find Foerster guilty of first degree murder, not a lesser charge.

Sicamous man back in police custody RCMP Report

A Sicamous man linked to a recent break and enter at a local marina is back in police custody. Sgt. Murray McNeil says 25-year-old Sheldon Odd was arrested on Monday, Sept. 25, for theft under $5,000 and breach of undertaking in relation to a

theft from a local beer and wine store. McNeil said Odd had previously been arrested and charged with break and enter with intent from a boat at a local marina on Sept. 9. “Odd is currently facing three charges of breach of undertak-

ing after he was found breaching the conditions placed on him by the court from the break and enter at the marina,” said McNeil. Odd has been remanded in custody, and makes his next court appearance on Oct. 10 in Salmon Arm.

CSRD landfill expansion worries neighbours Barb Brouwer Salmon Arm Observer

A Salmon Arm couple’s concerns about a possible landfill expansion has raised a host of issues. Howard and Linda Williamson live across from a property owned by Mounce Construction, a property on which the Columbia Shuswap Regional District has made an initial offer to purchase for $750,000. The purchase was revealed in a story in the Salmon Arm Observer after the details of the proposed purchase were released from an in-camera discussion among regional district directors in July. The Williamsons have accused the regional district of trying to acquire the Mounce property for landfill expansion under the public’s radar and “burying $1 million without public input or scrutiny.” “We will be living 21.5 meters from their new landfill,” write the couple in a submission to the Market News “There are seven other residences in the same situation.” The area in which the Williamsons live is zoned industrial and the couple, who live at 2750 40th St. SE, have a log house-building business on their own property. Another fly in the ointment is that although the Ministry of Environment (MOE) issued a permit for a private landfill on the Mounce proper-

ty in April 1993 and amended it in 1994 for Mounce, neither his property nor the current landfill site is zoned for a landfill. The CSRD’s Ben Van Nostrand says once the landfill permit is provided by MOE it is in perpetuity and can be withdrawn by the ministry only. As it turns out, the city, who built the landfill and sold it to the CSRD in the 1990s, does not have a zone that accommodates landfills so the current landfill is not properly zoned either. The City of Salmon Arm and CSRD have been conferring with MOE, who, in an Oct. 3 conference call, advised both parties that to proceed with the plan to purchase the Mounce property, the nature of the changes to the Salmon Arm landfill would be enough to trigger an amendment to the regional district’s solid waste management plan. This would require regional consultation. Even though the issue is focused on a single landfill, it would affect a regional plan, thus requiring broader public consultation. “The city has also indicated the change would trigger an amendment to their official community plan, in addition to a rezoning, which is an added layer of public consultation,” said Van Nostrand. “There are some time constraints with the property owner in

terms of the purchase.” Van Nostrand says MOE wants to see ideas and plans that the regional district have for the Mounce property. “We will be working with a consultant to finalize those plans, even though we already have a sense of what we want to do there,” he says.

Ben Van Nostrand CSRD TEAM LEADER

“Then we would take it to public consultation.” Van Nostrand says plans to hold a public meeting on Oct. 19 have now been delayed until further notice, but he is emphatic that the CSRD is not trying to hide anything and that land transactions are always dealt with in camera. “On the city side of things, neither properties are zoned for landfills and this is an opportunity for the city

to clean up existing uses and have things properly zoned,” says Kevin Pearson, Salmon Arm’s director of development services. “We’re proposing to create a new zone in the zoning bylaw called Waste Management Zone. The idea is the bylaw would also rezone the existing landfill.” Van Nostrand, meanwhile, says if the purchase were to go through, the regional district would honour the required 50-metre boundary between the landfill and the Williamson residence. He points out the CSRD needs to be looking at ways to expand the landfill. “It just seems like a common-sense operation given that the Mounce property is already a permitted landfill.” Permitted or not, Pearson says the permit does not respect city zoning. “It really depends if CSRD is going to continue on the purchase plan, because then council would have to consider an OCP amendment – and then it gets even more confusing.”

Shuswap women survive massacre Annual Las Vegas trip takes friends to mass shooting. For Darcy Custeau from Blind Bay, Jacki Bluschke from Chase and Lenora Shipka from Lake Country, the Route 91 country music festival in Las Vegas was to be the highlight of their second annual girls trip. During the last act of the last night of the three-day festival, they were having fun – dancing, singing, whooping and hollering. Then they heard bangs. “We just thought it was fireworks, to do with the end of the show,” said an exhausted and emotional Custeau from Las Vegas Monday. She and Shipka had been standing about 250 feet from the stage Sunday night, pretty well in the centre of the huge field that accommodated the 22,000 people at the event. The field was fenced off with tarps and such, she says, and had only certain places to exit. Bluschke was about 10 feet in front of them and a fourth friend from Edmonton was up at the front. Then they heard more bangs, closer together. Then rapid fire ‘bopbopbopbopbopbopbop,’ says Custeau. “Some people were saying ‘it’s a gun.’ Others were saying ‘it’s only fireworks.’ We were still kind of hesitant and then we heard ‘Get down, get down, it’s gunfire, it’s gunfire.’” “We didn’t know where the shooter was coming from, we just had to get out of there.” They started running. “Every time we’d hear gunshots, we’d get down. They’d stop and we’d run.” Custeau said people were dropping everywhere, but the women didn’t know if they had been shot or were hiding, under cover. They lost Bluschke in the turmoil. “It was all just a blur, it was chaos, there were people everywhere, they were all very helpful, no one was trampling.

Everyone was trying to help. The men were trying to cover the ladies, to help them, then getting people up, running together in groups. We found our way through, past the SWAT team and they told us, ‘get out, get out, just don’t stop running, just go, just keep going, just keep going, don’t stop.’” Custeau and Shipka, wearing skirts and cowboy boots, ran, trying to stay off the main roads. As they ran, they called their husbands, telling them they were okay. Custeau has a fiveyear-old daughter and Shipka, a six-year-old. The shooting happened at 10:08 p.m., Custeau notes. They ran four miles and were in their hotel room by probably 10:50. “It was pretty traumatic. We didn’t know if there was one shooter or 10 shooters, we didn’t know anything until

we got to the hotel and turned on the news.” Shipka’s boot was full of blood, Custeau says, and she thought she might have cut her leg. When she took it off, however, she discovered she was okay. “So she’s got somebody’s blood in her boot.” Blushke was on her own in the chaos, but a husband and wife from Vegas asked her if she was alone. When she told them she’d lost her friends, the man told her to grab onto his hand and onto his waist and not let go. The three of them got out and ended up in another hotel in a storage room, waiting until they could get a vehicle from a friend who worked there, Custeau says. Then they drove Bluschke back to her hotel. The fourth friend also got out safely. When the women re-

We shut the TV off and turned it back on, 20 people had died. We shut the TV off, turned it back on, 50 people had died.” By Monday evening, 59 people were reported

dead and more than 525 injured. Still reeling from the horror, Custeau doesn’t know what’s next for her. “I can’t answer it until I get home with my loved ones and reality kicks in. I can’t answer that. We’re a part of history of the biggest massacre in U.S. history. It’s not really how you want to be a part of history.”

tragedy a time to reflect

We have learned once again that the world is an extremely small place and the Okanagan isn’t immune to tragedy. On Sunday, thousands of people were enjoying an outdoor music festival in Las Vegas when a gunman opened fire from a hotel across the street. As of press time, the death toll was a staggering 59 people, the deadliest in modern U.S. history, while more than 500 people were injured. Given that Las Vegas is an international destination, concert-goers originated from around the world, including from right here at home. Among them is Braden Matejka, who was raised in Enderby and lives in Lake Country. He was grazed by a bullet and taken to hospital. It would be easy for us, as Canadians, to stand on our soap box and wag a finger at the U.S. and its gun culture. But violence occurs here too, as demonstrated by an Edmonton police officer and pedestrians being struck by a vehicle on the weekend. It’s time that all of us looked within our homes, workplaces and communities, and took a stand against acts of aggression, whether it’s domestic violence or bullying. Demand that government provide accessible services for the victims but also for those who may be struggling with personal issues before they get out of hand. But what we can learn most of all from the Las Vegas massacre is that life can change in an instant. Embrace those around you, hug them and love them. Smile at the stranger on the street or reach out to your neighbour. -Vernon Morning Star

Moving through the seasons the great outdoors James Murray For the past few days now I have been noticing flocks of ducks and geese going by overhead making their long way south. Lately too, I have noticed that like the ducks and geese, the days and weeks, the months and years, seem to be going by ever more swiftly – like birds on the wing. One day it’s the first day of spring, the next day the leaves on the trees are beginning to turn from green into shades of yellow and red. I also find myself contemplating the passing of the season with a degree of longing akin to sadness. As a young kid contemplating the fact that summer was coming to an end and school would be starting in a matter of days, I would sometimes lie out in the tall grass of a field not far from my grandmother’s house and watch the clouds go by in the blue, blue sky, hoping that dreadful first day of school might never come. But it always did. During those now long ago summer months, I didn’t re-

ally have a care in the world. Perhaps it was over the course of those early summers that I became such an expert at squandering time. Now I spend my time sitting in my adirondack chair out in the backyard watching the clouds go by. Some things never change. The summers of my youth were mostly spent goofing off and having fun. I remember I couldn’t wait for school to be over. Back then, the summer months meant freedom to go fishing pretty much whenever I wanted. It meant being able to ride my bike like a crazy person, all the while not giving a rat’s behind as to when I had to be home – just as long as I was there for supper. It also meant spending time watching great blue herons fishing in the slews and garter snakes sunning themselves on the trail leading down to the creek where I would cast my line to little 10- and 12-inch trout hiding in the shadows of overhanging branches. Like the song says, the liven’ was easy.

Although the end of summer meant having to go back to school, I still found ways to goof off. What I may have lacked in math and Latin skills in the classroom, I more than made up for in the ability to look out the classroom window and daydream. The only good thing about summer’s end was being able to spend Saturday and Sunday mornings helping my grandmother in the garden, pulling carrots and potatoes and eating apples off the tree. For her, the coming of autumn meant canning season and getting ready for winter. For me, it meant six months of drudgery ahead. I still have little or no use for winter. It is but an inconvenient interruption between fall, when fishing is at its best, and spring, when I can look forward to the arrival of the new fishing season. Of course, the fall of the year does bring back memories of my mother’s freshly cooked pumpkin pies set out on the window sill to cool ,and dancing with the devil without ever having to look him in the eye on all hallow’s eve. I apologize right here and now for any outhouse that my older brother and I may have accidentally

knocked over. Even today I enjoy a warm lazy summer’s afternoon sitting out in the boat, dragging a line or casting to the possibility of the occasional trout. But nothing comes close to the fall for fishing. The lakes are alive with trout eager to bite at whatever comes their way due to the fact that they are trying to fatten up for the winter months ahead. Salmon are running as are winter steelhead and river fishing is at its best. My hair may be grey and my step a little slower, but I still get excited when I’m loading up the vehicle to head out and cast my line to all fishing opportunities that the autumn season has to offer. Over the past 68 years of warm, summer days and cool, crisp autumn winds, and through all the changing of the seasons, I have come to understand that in life, as in nature, everything has its season. What I don’t quite understand is how the summers of my youth have somehow turned into the autumn of my life. As you read this column, I will be casting my eightweight fly rod to pinks and spring salmon on the Fraser River.

MP takes on firefighting gear thefts Mel Arnold wants new law to include stiffer penalties. Richard Rolke Black Press

North Okanagan-Shuswap MP Mel Arnold wants anyone stealing firefighting equipment to be punished. The Conservative MP has introduced a private member’s bill that seeks to amend the Crimi-

nal Code of Canada in relation to offences involving firefighting equipment. “This past summer, I was shocked by reports of firefighting equipment being vandalized and stolen from wildfire service camps,” he said. The bill proposes a new specific offence

for theft of firefighting equipment that causes danger to life. Arnold’s bill also proposes to establish mischief related to firefighting equipment as an aggravating circumstance while the third component of the bill proposes a sentencing objective for theft of firefighting equipment.

“After researching the Criminal Code, it was apparent that the code has a gap when it comes to denunciation and deterrence specific to these types of offences and so I have introduced this bill in recognition of firefighters and the safety that they provide our com-

munities,” said Arnold. “Whether the offence occurs at a fire hall, in an apartment building or at a wildfire site, tampering or theft of firefighting equipment can quickly cause danger to life and it is time the Criminal Code reflects the gravity of such offences.”

bearing the brunt of a recession as larger ones. The following are unique ways men and women can shop locally. * Forgo a traditional vacation. If you’re used to taking an annual trip to a Caribbean island or another faraway locale, forgo that trip this year and take a more local vacation instead. A local vacation can be similar to a staycation, when you simply stay home, but spend some nights out on the town in your local community. Go out to eat, take in a concert or theater performance at a nearby theater or take the kids out for miniature golf.

* Treat yourself to a spa treatment. Another unique and indulgent way to support your local economy is to treat yourself to a spa treatment. The cost of a spa trip depends on what you prefer, but even a relatively inexpensive trip to the spa will support a local business. Plus, you’ll reap the rewards of that support immediately. Shopping locally is more than just dining out or buying locally produced foods. Those who want to embrace shopping locally can do so in a variety of ways.

Shopping locally is a great way to benefit your community and, in many instances, your bottom line. When consumers shop locally, they help stimulate their local economies, creating jobs for their neighbors by helping local businesses grow and thrive. Shopping locally also saves shoppers long trips to the mall that can waste expensive fuel, especially if consumers don’t find what they’re looking for. Shopping locally is especially important when the economy is struggling, as smaller businesses are not always as capable of

SCORPIO

Even though you can’t pinpoint it directly, Scorpio, you can tell something is going on that has been kept from you. Someone you thought was a friend may not be.

Sagittarius, it is not uncommon to feel on edge Don’t fret over trivial issues, Sagittarius. They will work themselves out without much intervention. Focus your energy on larger issues.

Foundation gets funds on night it normally gives The Arts Council for the South Shuswap (ACSS) turned the tables on the Shuswap Community Foundation at the foundation’s Annual Community Meeting held Sept. 28 at the Elks Hall in Salmon Arm. The council, incorporated in 2013, has been busy creating a vibrant cultural scene in the South Shuswap. After significant renovations to the lower floor of Carlin Hall, FACES (Fine Arts & Cultural Experiences in the Shuswap) was relocated there, offering classes in art, dance and music to kids and adults alike. The studio is also

home to Music in the Bay, the Shuswap Lake Culture Crawl, the South Shuswap Children’s Choir and the South Shuswap Children’s Theatre. Familiar with the work of the Shuswap Community Foundation and how the council’s money could work for it, as well as for the foundation, Karen Brown, administrator of ACSS, invited the foundation board to speak to her board of directors, explaining what the foundation does and how it does it. As a result, a decision was taken to establish an Agency Endowment Fund with the foundation. The most recent fundraising event towards

achieving this goal was a dinner, dance and live auction. The musicians, the auctioneer and the owners of the venue for the event donated generously, as did those who contributed items to the auction. The highlight of the evening was the drawing of the winning raffle ticket for two tickets anywhere in the world that WestJet flies. It was a very successful evening. At the foundation’s Annual Community Meeting, Brown and the council’s treasurer, Debbie Reeves, were presented with a grant provided by the Founders’ Endowment to help with the construction of a community mobile stage that can be taken to any event.

The tables were turned when they then presented the foundation with $8,200 to open the council’s agency fund. When the fund reaches $10,000, the interest it accrues as part of the foundation’s capital fund will be returned to Arts Council of the South Shuswap annually. The foundation’s capital fund currently holds well over $8 million. To learn more about the Shuswap Community Foundation, call 250-832-5428, email info@shuswapfoundation.ca or drop into the office at 102-160 Harbourfront Dr. NE in Salmon Arm between 9:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Monday to Friday.

“Thank You, Father, for the many blessings 24/7.” The best gift is a faith to live by -Jesus, Whose record and character are impeccable! Clean! What was Jesus like? He grew up in a carpenter’s home – and became one. He was the oldest in the family and it fell on Him to take care of Mary and His siblings when their father Joseph died. There were 4 brothers - James, Joses, Judas, Simon -- and several sisters. He loved children and the disadvantaged. He had compassion on the poor and the prostitutes. He healed countless sick from various diseases. The blind and the deaf got a new life. Those tormented by demons were finally free! Thousands were fed on a number of occasions. He confronted the controlling religious leaders. We are proud of Jesus – there are no skeletons in His closet. He prayed for those who nailed Him to the cross. He continues to be a worthy leader and role model for everyone. Even His accusers admitted publicly He was without fault. He is the only One qualified to atone for human sins. Today He is our powerful advocate, our protector. He knows all about us and yet loves us unconditionally. Jesus is always faithful, dependable. He deals with our guilt and our past. Anyone can check Him out in the gospels: Matthew (once a despised tax collector), Mark (Peter’s nephew), Luke (an educated physician) and John (a teen who followed Jesus). Compare Jesus with any religious leader. Write it out. His offer? “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.” Real rest for Thanksgiving! Ask Jesus to give you a new heart, to give you hope and a new joy in life. He really loves you. We know.

Happy Thanksgiving 2017!

A neighbour from Uzbekistan Welcome Shuswap

Immigrant Services Shuswap, located at 371 Hudson St., N.E., would like to introduce some of our recent immigrants to the people of Salmon Arm in the hope that all citizens join us in extending a welcome to the new members of our community. Our organization is a non-profit, non-governmental society with a mission to welcome, support and include all immigrants in the Shuswap. We value the diversity that immigrants bring to our community . Please join us in welcoming Ziyba Ibragimova. Ziyba Ibragimova is originally from Uzbekistan, Central Asia, and is now living in Salmon Arm. She grew up in a desert and is therefore very happy to live in B.C. She ap-

preciates the beauty of nature, the clean lakes, the amount of trees and mountains. Hence, after immigrating to

Ziyba Ibragimova ImmIgrant

Canada, she became an environmentalist. She says that when we have such a beautiful country we need to take good care of it and, in addition, help out even more by taking the opportunity to recycle and buy many things second hand. She also says it is not

so fun to live in a desert, without water and without trees or mountains. The summers can be extremely hot and the winters can be extremely cold. To her, being able to go to a clean lake and swim is such a privilege. During the last five years, she went to Okanagan College and also did a master’s degree through Gonzaga University. Besides choosing to make less waste in Canada, she is starting her own enterprise called One Small World Trainings. She is offering workshops on cultural awareness and cultural adaptation for mainstream Canadian groups or organizations, and immigrant/ refugee groups respectively. Right now, Ibragimova is volunteering at Shuswap Immigrant Services Center and co-facilitating evening workshops for Syrian refugee women and Canadian women.

NDP embraces new leader Richard Rolke Morning Star Staff

Local New Democrats are optimistic now that the party has a new national leader. Jagmeet Singh, a member of the Ontario legislature, won the leadership of the federal NDP Sunday, taking 53 per cent of the vote on the first ballot. “He’s well spoken and intelligent,” said Alice Brown, North Okanagan-Shuswap NDP Riding Association president. “He knows how to put ideas across and he’s a forward thinker. If he’s going to make any headway in the next election, he will have to bring the party together. He has good potential.” The 38-year-old criminal defence lawyer has been a member of the Ontario legislature since 2011 and has served as justice critic and NDP deputy leader in that province. Also seeking the federal leadership were MPs Charlie Angus, Niki Ashton and Guy Caron. Brown believes there was support among North Okanagan-Shuswap New Democrats for Ashton and Caron because they both visited the riding.

Singh will be invited to the North Okanagan-Shuswap NDP annual general meeting Nov. 26. “It will give him an opportunity to meet some of the people here,” said Brown. Singh replaces Tom Mulcair as national party leader.

Lunch program offers up more than a meal “Sam is very interesting, but he’s a dog and the conversation is one way,” he says with a laugh. One challenge many seniors have with interacting is hearing loss, he says. “We’ve just installed a loop system, the aural loop system,” he says as he walks into the auditorium. “They put the wire under the floor. So all you have to do on your hearing aid is plug into the system and when someone is speaking in the microphone, it goes straight into your hearing aid.” He’s very happy with this major upgrade as well as those done to the kitchen. “Just refurbishing the kitchen was $15,000,” Holly Ready, who is a regular there at lunch time, says the food there is “far better” than what she cooks for herself. “Karsten is a chef and he makes all kinds

Viewpoint

New parks for the Shuswap? SHUSWAP PASSION Jim Cooperman There is a good possibility that the new government in Victoria will revive land use planning and perhaps support the creation of new provincial parks. It was in 2001 that the Okanagan Shuswap Land and Resource Management Plan was approved and implemented. Over 25,000 hectares of parks were established in the Shuswap, including the Upper Seymour rainforest and Anstey Arm/Hunakwa Lake Park. In addition, the plan enabled the protection of over 95,000 hectares of old-growth management areas (OGMAs) and provided specific management direction to protect many non-timber values, including wildlife, water quality and quantity, recreation and viewsheds. A monitoring committee was established upon the completion of the LRMP that met twice a year until 2009, when the previous provincial government ended the process. The land-use plan was always intended to be in place for just 10 years, at which time it was to be reviewed and updated. Over the same time period, forest management in the province changed drastically in favour of “professional reliance,” allowing forest companies to do their own planning with minimal government oversight or public involvement. The new NDP government has now launched a review and may also revise the system to improve oversight. If there becomes an opportunity to create new provincial parks, there are a number of potential candidate areas that deserve to be protected. Black Point and Turtle Bay in Mara Lake have

unique features, including old growth trees, pictographs and wetland habitat. The peninsula is crown land that both the regional district and the Swansea Point community deem important for its conservation values. When the rail trail is completed, a connecting nature trail could be developed into Black Point. Most of the Corning (Lee) Creek watershed is already protected in riparian zones and OGMAs, so making it a park would not impact forestry operations. There are many natural values here that deserve protection through park status, including at least one waterfall, old growth cedar and hemlock trees in the canyon and Douglas fir on the hillsides. There are hiking routes on the bluffs with exquisite views of the lakes and Squilax Mountain. Amazingly, much of the canyon is virtually unexplored

wilderness where trails could be developed. Two types of parks were created in the last plan. Goal 1 parks are large areas with high conservation values and the Goal 2 parks are small and protect special features. One of the Goal 2 protected areas, the Upper Perry River, was never designated a park. Another Goal 2 area, English Lake, was not completely designated. If a new planning process begins, both these areas should be fully protected and, if possible, enlarged to include more old-growth forests. As well, trails could be developed that provide access to the alpine. In the past planning process, the major objective was to protect representative samples of each of the many types of ecosystems in the province. That is why it was so crucial to protect the remaining hectares of rare antique rainforest left in the Upper Seymour. Under a new process one of the goals should be to protect important wildlife areas at threat from

One key candidate for park creation would be a portion of the area proposed for an off-road ban in the Tsuius, Joss and Mabel Mountain area, where grizzly bears are at threat from all kinds of backcountry use. A park here could also protect the heritage Secwepemc trail that connects the upper Shuswap River with the upper Eagle River drainage. Nearby in the headwaters of the Shuswap River, the Greenbush Lake Provincial Park should be expanded to include the entire lake and connect to the Joss

Mountain pass. Another alpine area that should be considered for park status is the Anstey ridge that runs between Queest and Ratchford Creek. That is where a hut-tohut trail system was proposed a few years ago. Renewed land-use planning would indeed help restore the province’s reputation as a leader in supporting conservation and stewardship of natural resources. As well, increased protection of wild spaces will help improve our resilience, which would help us better adapt to the uncertainties and impacts from climate change.

Despite the old adage, sometimes it just seems to be more fun to receive than give. That was certainly the case Thursday, Sept. 28 when representatives of many Shuswap non-profit societies attended the annual meeting of the Shuswap Community Foundation. However, each person in the near-capacity crowd at Elk’s Hall represented a group that gives to the community in many vital ways. The annual report indicates a growth of close to $1 million in the foundation’s investment portfolio at year-end over the previous year. And distribution of grants this year will see the foundation pass the $2 million mark since its inception. “This is my favourite day of the year,” enthused Cindy Derkaz, founding member of the foundation. “It’s just like Christmas.” Contrary to his comments regarding his inappropriateness as MC, foundation treasurer John Wood was articulate and entertaining, his humour setting the happy tone for the evening. Recipients of grants over the past year were given two minutes to express their gratitude and explain what their particular group had done with the money, – a timeline most people

From snowshoeing opportunities for people with developmental disabilities, music, pool and bus passes to repairs at the SPCA branch, geo-thermal heating for the museum, literacy programs and more, the foundation’s discretionary spring grants totalled $68,000. Fall discretionary grants totalled $49,000 and included funding for many more valuable community projects that ranged from training in suicide alertness to the arts, band equipment, various senior support groups and providing security to a donkey barn. Donor-directed grants were of a similar eclectic mix and totalled $138,000. Individual grants ranged from a $350 scholarship to $70,584 for improvements at the Shuswap branch of

the SPCA. The grants covered the many areas that make for a vital, compassionate, caring and healthy community for all age groups from babies to seniors. The Shuswap Community Foundation serves an area that encompasses Malakwa and Sicamous in the east, through to the South Shuswap, North Shuswap, south to Ranchero, Salmon Valley and Falkland. The foundation’s annual report holds a wealth of information and is available at the office located on Lakeshore Drive in the Shuswap Community Futures office. For more information, drop in to the office Monday through Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. or phone 250-832-5428. Information is also available at www. shuswapfoundation. ca.

Salmon Arm Golf Club head pro Jesse Crowe is this year’s recipient of PGA of BC’s Dunc Sutherland Distinguished Service Award. Presented by DGL Sports Enterprises Ltd., the award is given to the PGA of BC member who

demonstrates exceptional commitment to the association by supporting and promoting the association’s brand, events and initiatives. “A 15-year member of the association, Crowe has always been an enthusiastic supporter of PGA of BC activities, but perhaps never more than

in 2017,” reads a PGA of BC press release. “The 37-year-old participated in every tournament conducted by the PG of BC for which he is eligible, while acting as host professionals for the Assistants’ and Seniors’ Championships in June.” Crowe also championed the association’s

junior programming throughout the season, including Canucks Junior Golf Week presented by Odlum Brown Limited and the Jack McLaughlin Memorial Pro-Junior Championship, helping him earn the Interior Region’s nomination for this year’s Junior Golf Leader of the Year Award.

Canoe playground opens Project a tribute to former Slo-Pitch president. Tracy Hughes Salmon Arm Observer

There are kids sliding, jumping and climbing. The final touches were put on the Al Boucher Memorial playground over the weekend and it is now open for public use. Al Boucher was a well-known member of the Salmon Arm community who died in a car accident on Friday, Feb.17. He was the former owner of the Blue Canoe Bakery & Café, president of the Salmon Arm’s Slo-Pitch League, as well as an active member of the community. During his tenure as Salmon Arm’s SloPitch League’s president, he worked tirelessly to maintain and improve the quality of the ball facility. As a father of two young boys,

one of his many goals was to create a safe and fun environment for children to play while their parents were playing or watching baseball at the Canoe ball diamonds. A GoFundMe page was created after Boucher’s death, and the response was immediate and overwhelming – within a few weeks, more than $10,000 was raised. The Salmar Community Association then came through with a $15,000 grant and Dinoflex committed to donating 900 square feet of rubber play tiles, at a value of over $12,000. As organizers neared the build date, many more local businesses donated product, equipment and even meals. “The community involvement has been truly spectacular,”

Women with business in their blood October 16 to 22, 2017, is National Business Women’s Week. Who are the women running companies and small enterprises? What drives them and makes them successful? Common traits Some women seem to have it in their blood; it is as though they were born to be businesspeople. Generally, these women are go-getters. They are driven and they love taking charge. Without trying to stubbornly impose their point of view, they enjoy the art of persuasive argument and getting others to share in their vision of the world. These women are driven by their self-confidence and their belief in their skills. Chief motivations Women who choose to go into business appear to share a number

of common motives. Firstly, they share a desire to reach their potential without constraints and to let their creativity run free. Business women often choose to go out on their own because of their frustrations with the limitations of the business world or typical work environments. Secondly, time management is another common motivation. Managing your own schedule allows you to invest your energy in the right places and at the right times. Being financially independent also fuels women to create their own businesses. Being business owners means being able to reap every dollar generated by their determined efforts. To be a business woman — a good business woman — involves conviction. Yes, you need to have business in your blood, but above all, you need to truly believe in your skills and in your business.

Sandra Kentel, Realtor® I am currently in my 10th year of Real Estate and have accomplished becoming part of the 100 Percent Club, the Platinum Club, and most recently the Exclusive RE/MAX Hall of Fame. I place a high value on the importance of lifelong learning. This includes keeping current in the Real Estate industry through seminars and continued education, serving as a director of the Shuswap Zone for the Okanagan Mainline Real Estate Board, and best of all - hands on experience. I also believe strongly in giving back to my community. I am proud to support the BC Children’s Miracle Network and our local Staples School

A business woman’s success is directly related to her determination and drive.

Supply Drive. I had the privilege of growing up in Salmon Arm and raising my two sons here as well. I also grew up surrounded in the construction and real estate industries. This unique prospective gives me personal knowledge of not only the local Real Estate market, but of the beautiful community and the surrounding Shuswap areas. As a Realtor, I work with my clients to reach their real estate goals. By building a solid relationship based on trust and knowledge I am honoured in being “the resource” for my clients, friends and family.

What are the keys to succeeding as a businesswoman? Driven by intense passion and endless creativity, successful businesswomen are determined and confident in their abilities.

The appetite for risk, the love for a good challenge, the desire to succeed, the longing to be one’s own boss, the appeal of a better balance between work and family life, and, most importantly, the immense passion for one’s job — these are the driving factors that are increasingly pushing women to enter the business

world. Today, many women enjoy great success and inspire others to follow in their footsteps. But how do you become an accomplished businesswoman? Entrepreneurs normally have several essential qualities in common, starting with an unfailing desire to succeed. Self-confidence

and leadership are two other important characteristics to have to get ahead in the business world — an industry that is still largely male-dominated. And that’s not all! To succeed, women must master the art of organization, sales and networking. But above all, they must demonstrate a high level of creativity. Furthermore, successful businesswomen aren’t only conscious of their capabilities; they’re also aware of their limitations. In other words, they aren’t afraid to delegate tasks that fall beyond their expertise to others. Being an entrepreneur means surrounding yourself with the right

Gallery offers aboriginal perspective Barb Brouwer Salmon Arm Observer

What it means to be Canadian in this time of reconciliation will be explored in Kanata/ Qelmúculucw, an exhibition of aboriginal artists at the Salmon Arm Art Gallery. “Kanata refers to the misinterpretation of the original word that we now know as Canada. This is but one example of the misunderstandings of colonial Canada in its encroachment on the land,” says director/curator Tracey Kutschker. “By appropriating the words used for the land and making them into the English language, we can use this colonial act as a metaphor for relations in Canada in 2017.” Kanata will provide space for First Nations artists working in this area to showcase how they are exploring and making new understandings of Canada and its relations. Curated by Splatsin artist Aaron Leon, the exhibition will feature works by Dion Kaszas, Tania Willard, David Wilson and Mary Thomas. Daughter-in-law of late elder Mary Thomas, Thomas uses the lens of her camera and her Smart Phone to capture the world around her. Hopeful the promise of a trail to Neskonlith Band land west of Salmon Arm will come to be, Thomas regularly walks to town alongside the railway tracks. “It’s quieter down there,” she says noting the Trans-Canada Highway is her only other option for walking into town. “It would be so awesome to have the trail.” Without the trail, Thomas follows the rail tracks, capturing scenes most other residents never see.

Mary thOMas

This eagle is one of the favoured ‘acquaintances’ Mary Thomas meets on her regular walks to town. ”I like to see the eagle every day; I just say it’s my eagle,” she laughs. “It’s a beautiful bird and it’s strong.” Thomas also favours clouds, the moon and a bear who is often in fields near her home. An employee of Service Canada for 30 years, Thomas retired in 2012 and took up photography for no other reason than

she just likes to take pictures of the world around her. A selection of her beautiful photos will be on display during the gallery’s October exhibition. Kanata/Qelmúculucw opens with a reception at 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 6, with live music and refreshments and continues to Nov. 10.

live turtles got a helping hand to cross the road. “The numbers of hatchling turtles so far this year, starting from April 21 to 30th, is 25 dead and 16 live that were moved across the road,” she said last week. “Of course we hope there are more making it to the lake that we have not observed.” While the turtles cross the road all along the lake, the two most popular crossings are near White Lake Community Hall and boat launch, and the John Evdokimoff

Bike Skills Park. Turtle eggs are laid from May to July and baby turtles hatch in Sepuntember, remaining underground un til the following spring. As the temperatures warm up from mid April through May, the toonie-size baby turtles begin to move slowly across the road in their quest to reach the lake. “Then they have their biggest hazard.

The opera is set in the forests of Gaul (France) among the Druids, members of the Gallic/Celtic priesthood, at the beginning of the Roman occupation. Norma leads a double life as the lover of the Roman proconsul and as the Druid priestess. The story examines an ageless and archetypal situation: a powerful woman compromises her ideals for love, only to find herself betrayed by her lover. But equally gripping is her relationship with Adalgisa, the younger woman who is now her rival and in whom Norma sees her second

self. The title role demands dramatic vocal power and agility and poses a daunting challenge that every soprano strives for but few can rise to. Those who succeed, Maria Callas, for example, become part of operatic lore. This opera is an extraordinary fusion of sublime melody, vocal challenge and dramatic power. Bellini’s clear score with Felice Romani’s libretto moves the drama along with vigorous rhythm and informs certain moments with intense feeling and emotion. The Metropolitan Opera’s Emmy-Award winning series continues in Salmon Arm for the 10th season thanks to the vision of the Salmar Community Association.

in his native small town in Romania but has managed to build a successful reputation of honesty and morality in a country still swarming with corruption and back dealings. All Romeo’s pride and joy lies in his daughter Eliza (Maria Dragus), who has won

a scholarship to leave and study psychology abroad in the UK, she need only pass her final exam to secure it. But when Eliza is attacked on the eve of her test, compromising her ability to focus, Romeo struggles with the decision to take matters into his own hands.

What happened to Made in Canada? ShuSWap outdoorS Hank Shelley Hunters and anglers are a really a hard-core bunch when it comes to outdoor gear, equipment and clothing. This applies to guys and gals. Yes fellas, it’s no secret. Walk into any sporting goods store and you’ll find rifles slings, packs, innerand outer-wear, all designed for the lady in the hunter or angler’s life. I hunt with two couples who really enjoy the outdoors and camping. When a deer is harvested, both roll up their sleeves and help dress the animal. The same with grouse. A 2015 survey in Outdoor Canada magazine called Canadian Nature Survey, carried

out in 2012, showed 21.1 per cent of the 2.1 million Canadians that hunted or trapped were female. That is up around six per cent over a survey done in 1996. The results are also pertain to a survey by the same magazine to find the top outdoor gal. Of all the applicants, Carly Deacon of Thunder Bay took top place. But whatever item you purchase at your favorite sport shop, you will find it’s made in China or the another off-shore country. For many years now, the cost of making outdoor goods, including fishing tackle, rods, reels, outerwear (or

Enderby lifts campfire ban There’s good news for Enderby and Armstrong residents. Enderby lifted its campfire ban Wednesday while Armstrong rescinded the fire ban for cooking purposes. “Following recent precipitation and cooler temperatures, the hazard has been reduced such that we can lift the campfire ban,” said Cliff Vetter, fire chief. “Despite this, the area is still dry and the public is asked to be extremely cautious if they choose to have a campfire. All campfires should be conducted in accordance with relevant bylaws and regulations.” In Armstrong, fire chief Ian Cummings recommended the fire ban for cooking purposes be lifted. “We remind community members that campfires are not permitted within the City of Armstrong,” said Warren Smith, manager of community services. “The open burning

So many companies, large outdoor retailers, began to order or have contacts in China to build their items cheaply, still giving the distributors margin of profit. Many B.C. hunters and anglers who cannot afford expensive outdoor gear or rifles or clothing will buy where they can get the best deal for their buck, regardless of what store they buy from. On our return from a fishing charter on the Island a while back, I wanted to buy a scope for my crossbow and a

range finder. Wholesale Sports in Naniamo’s lowest price was $299 for a Bushnell finder. Same at other outlets. Canadian Tire in North Vancouver had the finder on special at $124. Made in China. The scope, an Excalibur, also made in China. In the latest BC Outdoors, Ken Garwasiuk writes on archery. He owns Hardcore archery shop. He recently attended a trade show in the U.S. Talk was all about the crisis archery is in at present with a 30 to 60 per cent loss in business. It’s all about Chinese knockoffs.

Salmon Arm Observer/Shuswap Market News

Coping with President Trump GLOBAL VIEWS Gwynne Dyer We have to face facts: there is no US federal government any more in the normal sense of the word. Social Security payments still get made and the 2.79 million federal civil servants still get paid, but there is no such thing as US government policy – especially foreign policy. Take the US defence secretary, former General James ‘Mad Dog’ Mattis. Depite his nickname, Mattis is a rational human being who thinks that the proliferation of nuclear weapons is a bad idea. He knows that it’s too late to stop North Korea from getting them, but he also knows that it is still possible to stop Iran from doing the same. In fact, the job is done: Iran signed an agreement in 2015 that takes the whole issue off the table for ten years. Matts is well aware that his boss, President Donald Trump, regularly fulminates about how bad the Iranian ‘deal’ is and keeps hinting that he will cancel it – in which case, of course, Iran could go ahead and get nuclear weapons in just a year or two. So he put his own job at risk on Tuesday by telling the Senate Armed Services Committee that the United

States should keep its word and abide by the agreement with Iran. Now he’s waiting for President Trump’s next tweet, which may well repudiate what he said. Trump won’t fire Mattis – he prefers to humiliate people in tweets until they quit – but his usefulness as secretary of defence is nearly at its end. Foreigners, including Iranians, know that Mattis is serious, but they also know that he does not speak for the president. Trump will do whatever he likes, so why bother even talking to Mattis? It’s just the same with Rex Tillerson, the secretary of state (foreign secretary). On Sunday he said that the United States has “lines of commuunication” open to Kim Jong-un’s North Korean regime. The subtext was clear: don’t worry about a nuclear war, folks. We’re talking to them (or about to talk to them, or talking about talking to them), and there’s still time for a deal that defuses the whole crisis. It’s not clear that that’s actually true, if the deal must include North Korea giving up its nuclear weapons and missiles. Kim is well aware of what happened to other people who defied

the United States but did not have nuclear weapons, like Iraq’s Saddam Hussein (dangling from the end of a rope) and Libya’s Muammar Gaddafi (a bayonet up the backside), so he is strongly motivated to hang onto his. But it is what Tillerson should say now, and it might help. Trump didn’t wait 24 hours before he tweeted: “I told Rex Tillerson, our wonderful Secretary of State, that he is wasting his time trying to negotiate with Little Rocket Man…Save your energy Rex, we’ll do what has to be done!” Like what? If negotiations are a waste of time, then the only alternative is force. Does Trump mean he’s going to attack North Korea (whch would almost certainly involve the use of nuclear weapons)? Of course not. He doesn’t mean anything; he’s only venting, as usual. He has no idea what he’s going to do about North Korea, if anything. He doesn’t even know what he is going to think or say tomorrow. The trouble is that Kim Jong-un probably doesn’t realise how aimless and inconsequential Trump’s tweets usually are. What Kim sees is most likely a death threat to him by the ruler of the most powerful nation on Earth. He has seen a dozen more messages like it in the past six

months, and he must be looking frantically for a way out. Talking to Tillerson might have shown him a way out, or at least bought him some time, but he’s definitely not going to talk to a diplomat who has been repudiated by his own president. As foreign secretary, Tillerson is toast. There have been calls in Washington for Tillerson to resign to avoid further humiliation, but others hope he will swallow his pride and stay in office as long as he can to postpone the appointment of a super-hawk like John Bolton or Nikki Haley. In fact, it probably doesn’t matter very much either way, because they would find that the Boss is undermining and discrediting them too. It’s what he always does to his subordinates. In the circumstances, it’s not surprising that America’s allies and its opponents are both coming to the conclusion that they will just have to ignore the US and make their deals wihout it. Iran, for instance, has said that it might stick by the nuclear deal if all the other signatories stay loyal to their commitments. Trump is a problem, of course, but for all his threats and boasts he doesn’t actually do much. It could be a viable strategy for the next three years.

INFORMATION DESIGNED TO PROMOTE AND ENHANCE YOUR WELLBEING

Non LCD Screens after Concussion FAMILY CHIROPRACTIC Dr. Warren Gage Many people who experience a significant concussion will often face ongoing challenges of post-concussion syndrome (PCS) that include headaches and dizziness that are worsened by bright light. This light sensitivity is called photophobia, and it is now known that over 40% of PCS sufferers experience photophobia that can last months, or even years after the original

injury. Considering the vast amount of technology in use today, PCS sufferers often significantly struggle looking at a screen on a computer, television, or other electronic device for an extended period of time. This light sensitivity can also then significantly delay a person's return to school or work. Problems arise because the majority of electronic devices and

computers use LCDtype screens which utilize intense back-lighting to display the images. In addition to the bright light emitted, LCD screens also use a technology where the image on the screen must flash at a very high speed – usually around 60x/second in order to maintain the images. Normally when one looks at the screen, it is flashing so quickly that it cannot be perceived by the human eye; however, this rapid flashing may also be a significant irritant. In an attempt to help these individuals, re-

search was recently completed at the Canadian Concussion Centre to determine if there is a different technology that may allow for an earlier return to computer screen usage. Neurologists completed an investigation comparing the effects on people with PCS when they watched an LCD screen versus those watching an e-paper screen. If you have ever looked at an e-book reader like a Kindle, you will have seen this type of e-paper screen. It was discovered that a different type of screen can have much less of

an irritating effect to PCS sufferers. The reason for the difference is in the technology in each of the screens. As I mentioned, LCD screens flicker at a hight rate and have bright back-lighting. E-paper uses magnetic technology to hold an image, and does not have the back-lighting making it much softer of a display. With significantly less aggravation of PCS symptoms in people using e-paper screens, they have committed to doing further research to potentially improve the lives of people

Five things everyone should know about GMO food labels (NC) Canadian food products are increasingly decked out in a multitude of food labels about everything from allergens and fat to genetically modified organisms, or GMOs. It's all meant to help consumers make healthy eating choices, but too much information can be overwhelming — especially about a topic like GMOs, where there are a lot of questions. Here's what you need to know about the GMOs in your food: Most foods aren't actually GMO at all. Yes, you can buy water or salt with a “No GMO” label, but since these items don't have DNA in the first place, the label doesn't actually mean anything. There are only nine GMO crops sold commercially. They are alfalfa, canola, field and sweet corn, cot-

ton, papaya, potatoes, soybeans, squash and sugar beets. An apple variety that doesn't brown when it's cut has been approved but isn't available on the market yet. Some of these crops like sugar beets, soybeans and field corn are processed into common food ingredients; others like alfalfa are used as livestock feed. GMOs don't cause allergies. The National Academy of Sciences hasn't found a single sniffle, sneeze or upset stomach as a result of eating GMO foods. In

fact, before a GMO is approved for use in food, researchers test it across more than 1,950 genes to see if there is a match with a known allergen. This process is overseen by Codex, an international food authority established by the World Health Organization and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations. Modifying crops isn't new technology. Farmers have been improving crops for thousands of years using techniques like selective breeding

or cross-breeding to change their genetic makeup. And just because a plant has been improved — think seedless watermelons, for example — doesn't mean it's a GMO; there are different tools farmers and plant breeders use to create new plant varieties. There's actually no need for a GMO label

at all. This is because consumers don't have to be afraid of them. Thousands of studies that have evaluated over 20 years of data have found that GMOs are safe, and that there is no evidence that GMO crops pose a greater risk to human health than their conventional counterparts. www.newscanada.com

suffering ongoing PCS challenges. At this time e-paper screens are not commonly used in an office or school setting, but as this information becomes more readily available, hopefully the manufacturers will get on board and begin offering alternatives to LCD monitors to help this growing population. Another issue PCS sufferers should be aware is that Chiropractic spinal adjustments are often effective in helping recover sooner from these

While this isn’t a travel article, it does contain mention of some Shuswap-area activities. This past Friday night, Sept. 29, a bus travelled from Sicamous, “The Houseboat Capital of Canada” to “Chase, a Shuswap Experience” to provide entertainment to 320 folks from all over Western Canada. From the far eastern shores to the far western shores of Shuswap lakes, two teams in the KIJHL Doug Birks Division got together for the occasion. While the Eagles soared in, the local fans sought out the Heat on a rainy day. The buzzer went at 7 p.m. at Art Holding Memorial Arena and the race was on! Lots of buzzing around end to end, and after 20 minutes, there was nothing but doughnuts on the scoreboard. In the second period, Chase popped a pair of golden nuggets, the first from Cory Loring ably assisted by Kolten Moore and Josh Bourne. Towards the latter half, Captain Grady Musgrave got his first of the season from Brayden Haskell and Quinn Slezak. In the third, the Eagles waited until less than five minutes left to score a power-play marker to get the fans

However, the Captain came through with another goal, this one on the power play from Kaden Black and Ryan Okino, to restore the two-goal lead. The Eagles stuck a talon deep with four minutes to go, but it wasn’t enough as the Heat claimed a 3-2 win. After seven games, Chase sits in second place with eight points, six behind the division-leading Revelstoke Grizzlies. A trade was made in the past week with the Grand Forks Border Bruins, to acquire 17-year-old defenceman Dune Wald. The game was the only ice contest for

www.saobserver.net DONALD ALLAN LAROY Our family is heartbroken to announce Don’s passing on September 29, 2017. Don was born in Chilliwack, BC on October 30, 1952 and spent his childhood and adult years in Golden until work brought him and his family to Sicamous in 1996. Don is survived by his wife and best friend of 43 years Wendy, son Jarrod (Emery and Oliver) and son Jordan and daughter-in-law Jayme (Niah and Kaden). He also leaves behind his brother Ron (Evelyn), sisters Sandy (Conrad) and Tammy (Doug), sister-in-law Janice and their families. He was predeceased by his parents, Herb and Sue and his younger brother Kelly. He will also be missed by his mother-in-law Dolores Rohrer, his brothers-in-law Dean and Tom Rohrer, sistersin-law Linda MGuire and Debbie Kelly and their families. He loved you all so much. Don had fond memories of his childhood and growing up on Wapta Street in Golden and he maintained the friendships he made from his younger years, throughout his life. He was a good and loyal friend and was always willing to lend a hand to anyone. His career of more than 32 years was in supply management with Evans Forest Products/ Louisiana Pacific in Donald, Golden and Malakwa. He loved his work which later on took him to the U.S. where he had the opportunity to use his experience and skills in those mills for LP. When his position was eliminated in 2008 he then worked at the Sicamous Recreation Centre and Napa Auto Parts to keep busy and fill his days until he and Wendy retired in 2013. They purchased a new truck and fifth wheel and were able to enjoy four years of camping in areas including Vancouver Island, the northern and interior areas  of BC, Alaska and Alberta. Don and Wendy were also able to travel on many warm vacations in different parts of Mexico, Cuba and the Dominican Republic where many friendships were made and continue. Don loved all sports but his passion was hockey. He played from a young age and eventually played as a defenceman with the senior men’s hockey league as a Golden Rocket. He won many awards playing hockey, fastball as a shortstop and second baseman, and flag football. He was involved with the Golden Junior Rockets hockey club upon that team’s formation. After moving to Sicamous he joined in helping with the Sicamous Eagles Jr B team. He was the assistant coach for several years including winning the 2001-2002 Western Canadian Jr B Championship with the Eagles team. He was always happy to coach his sons in hockey and baseball and was always their proudest supporter and fan. He was also instrumental in exposing his boys to golfing and skiing and was a role model in instilling a good work ethic and to be kind and helpful. Don’s most cherished part of his life was his family. He was the best dad who always made time to do things with his boys and their families. He loved to watch Niah play ball, Kaden play hockey, support Emery in karate and watch Oliver play hockey. Best of all he loved getting hugs from his grandchildren. He especially loved our family trip to Mexico in March 2016 and the yearly houseboat vacations. Don’s family would like to thank Dr Jack Beech, his office staff, the doctors, nurses and staff of Shuswap Lake General Hospital, Dr Ferdinand Matanaj, Dr Siavash Atrchian, Dr Michael Humphreys and the staff of the Vernon Cancer Agency. He received excellent care throughout his illness. We are forever grateful for the time we had with Don because of all the caring medical staff. Don’s request is no formal service. A date will be set next year to have a casual get-together in early summer for Don’s family and friends. “Give your family a hug because you never know what tomorrow may bring.� “If you wish In Memoriam donations may be made in Don’s name to the Shuswap Lake Hospital Foundation.�  Online condolences may be forwarded to the family through Don’s obituary at www. bowersfuneralservice.com

Remembering Loved Ones I’ll Be Waiting for You Although your heart may be broken, There’s no need to weep for me. I’m in a wonderful place now, Where I’m happy and so carefree. I had to go, but I’ve left behind Good memories to comfort you. Concentrate on the best times we had, And try not to feel so blue. For one day we’ll be together again, To laugh and sing and play. You’ll be so glad to see me again, It will seem I was gone just one day. So try to lift up your heads now, And dare to set grief aside, Because I’ll be waiting here for you, To welcome you to the other side.

Page A40 Friday, October 6, 2017 DONALD ALLAN LAROY Our family is heartbroken to announce Don’s passing on September 29, 2017. Don was born in Chilliwack, BC on October 30, 1952 and spent his childhood and adult years in Golden until work brought him and his family to Sicamous in 1996. Don is survived by his wife and best friend of 43 years Wendy, son Jarrod (Emery and Oliver) and son Jordan and daughter-in-law Jayme (Niah and Kaden). He also leaves behind his brother Ron (Evelyn), sisters Sandy (Conrad) and Tammy (Doug), sister-in-law Janice and their families. He was predeceased by his parents, Herb and Sue and his younger brother Kelly. He will also be missed by his mother-in-law Dolores Rohrer, his brothers-in-law Dean and Tom Rohrer, sistersin-law Linda MGuire and Debbie Kelly and their families. He loved you all so much. Don had fond memories of his childhood and growing up on Wapta Street in Golden and he maintained the friendships he made from his younger years, throughout his life. He was a good and loyal friend and was always willing to lend a hand to anyone. His career of more than 32 years was in supply management with Evans Forest Products/ Louisiana Pacific in Donald, Golden and Malakwa. He loved his work which later on took him to the U.S. where he had the opportunity to use his experience and skills in those mills for LP. When his position was eliminated in 2008 he then worked at the Sicamous Recreation Centre and Napa Auto Parts to keep busy and fill his days until he and Wendy retired in 2013. They purchased a new truck and fifth wheel and were able to enjoy four years of camping in areas including Vancouver Island, the northern and interior areas  of BC, Alaska and Alberta. Don and Wendy were also able to travel on many warm vacations in different parts of Mexico, Cuba and the Dominican Republic where many friendships were made and continue. Don loved all sports but his passion was hockey. He played from a young age and eventually played as a defenceman with the senior men’s hockey league as a Golden Rocket. He won many awards playing hockey, fastball as a shortstop and second baseman, and flag football. He was involved with the Golden Junior Rockets hockey club upon that team’s formation. After moving to Sicamous he joined in helping with the Sicamous Eagles Jr B team. He was the assistant coach for several years including winning the 2001-2002 Western Canadian Jr B Championship with the Eagles team. He was always happy to coach his sons in hockey and baseball and was always their proudest supporter and fan. He was also instrumental in exposing his boys to golfing and skiing and was a role model in instilling a good work ethic and to be kind and helpful. Don’s most cherished part of his life was his family. He was the best dad who always made time to do things with his boys and their families. He loved to watch Niah play ball, Kaden play hockey, support Emery in karate and watch Oliver play hockey. Best of all he loved getting hugs from his grandchildren. He especially loved our family trip to Mexico in March 2016 and the yearly houseboat vacations. Don’s family would like to thank Dr Jack Beech, his office staff, the doctors, nurses and staff of Shuswap Lake General Hospital, Dr Ferdinand Matanaj, Dr Siavash Atrchian, Dr Michael Humphreys and the staff of the Vernon Cancer Agency. He received excellent care throughout his illness. We are forever grateful for the time we had with Don because of all the caring medical staff. Don’s request is no formal service. A date will be set next year to have a casual get-together in early summer for Don’s family and friends. “Give your family a hug because you never know what tomorrow may bring.� “If you wish In Memoriam donations may be made in Don’s name to the Shuswap Lake Hospital Foundation.�  Online condolences may be forwarded to the family through Don’s obituary at www. bowersfuneralservice.com

Salmon Arm Observer/Shuswap Market News

Remembering Loved Ones I’ll Be Waiting for You Although your heart may be broken, There’s no need to weep for me. I’m in a wonderful place now, Where I’m happy and so carefree. I had to go, but I’ve left behind Good memories to comfort you. Concentrate on the best times we had, And try not to feel so blue. For one day we’ll be together again, To laugh and sing and play. You’ll be so glad to see me again, It will seem I was gone just one day. So try to lift up your heads now, And dare to set grief aside, Because I’ll be waiting here for you, To welcome you to the other side.

In loving memory of GARY WALLACE KANNGIESSER, December 17,1938 - October 9, 2016 Gary, you asked if you would be remembered. My answer then was: With every fiber of my being! “Death leaves a heartache no one can heal; Love leaves a memory no one can steal.� And each time I see a spectacular sunset, I remember your love; each time I laugh at the antics of hummingbirds, I remember your love; each time I marvel at the impressive dragonflies, I remember your love. Gary, you left us with so many memories of your laughter, adventurous spirit, and generous heart. I remember your life, and I find your love; I remember your death, and I find your courage. Courage to carry on even though every fiber of my being aches for you. Honey, you will always be remembered by your loving family and me, your loving wife, Rose

LETHAL DRUGS ARE out there

Find out how you can save a life. Every day, people are losing their lives to overdoses in BC. These deaths are preventable. Many illegal drugs, including party drugs, have been found to contain deadly fentanyl. And even more toxic carfentanil is now being detected in BC. Not using drugs is the best defence — using alone is the greatest risk. If you use drugs or know someone who does, help is available.

Salmon Arm Observer/Shuswap Market News

Imagining can be fruitless NaN dIckIe Opening Our Eyes Sometimes I try to imagine living a life vastly different than my own. I try to imagine what it would be like to be blind and deaf throughout my life, but I can’t because, fortunately for me, I have always been able to see and hear. Why do we try to imagine a life that isn’t our own? I think we do this because curiosity in any human being is a natural, usually healthy, activity. Where would we be if we didn’t imagine at all in our lives? Life would be flat and we would be stuck. For those of us who live with clinical depression, we may hesitate to venture down an imaginary “better” path, as it can quickly become fruitless and frustrating. But it needn’t be so. Recently I dared to ask myself how much time I have spent going into, being in, and coming out of depressive episodes. I was shocked and dismayed when I summed up the months and months – actually, too many years.

Find out what’s hot... in the Classifieds.

Then I asked myself, “What could and would I have done with my life had it been otherwise?” Merely asking the question frightened me, as I thought I might conclude that my life, so marked with black holes, has been a terrible waste. For the first time in my life, I allowed myself to fully consider and honestly respond to that question. It was a very sobering exercise, as the would-have-done was quite different than the what-has-been. But I quickly came up with the more important question, “What have I done with what I’ve been given?” Yes, life has given me this disorder. I came by it partly through family genes. I didn’t “make

up” my illness for some perverse or compensatory reason. In terms of my own real career, I took on meaningful work, though I couldn’t do that work constantly due to my episodes. I have carved out a meaningful life style and have nurtured many friendships. And I have been writing about mood disorders for 20 years. The short answer to “What have I done…?” is “The best I could do,” and I am doing my best now within the existing parameters of self-understanding, compassionate friends and family, and competent medical care. My life couldn’t have been different back then. I had not lost valuable opportunities. I had merely missed out on impossibilities. Having asked and answered the “back then” question, I can quite honestly say, “This has been my life. This is my

life. And it is worthwhile.” The most I, or anyone, can do today is live fully in the present. The future for those of us with mood disorders looks brighter than ever before. On the personal front, I will continue with the excellent ongoing medical care I have carefully chosen and maintained, and I will continue to seek and apply new techniques of self-care. Now instead of asking myself, “What if I didn’t have this disorder?” I ask, “What more can I do, given that I have it?” -Nan Dickie is the facilitator of a peerled depression support group in Salmon Arm.

Body art event in Sicamous Lachlan Labere Eagle Valley News

Christine Turpin is one of a relatively small but growing number artists whose body of work consists of bodies. Turpin has been honing her craft of painting human faces and bodies for the past seven years. On Saturday, Oct. 14, she will be hosting a workshop at the Red Barn, in which she will demonstrate her unique artistic skills on a model. “One body usually takes about four hours,” said Turpin, who hasn’t decided what it is exactly she’ll be painting yet, but she says it will be a family-friendly demonstration. “The girls, they will have underwear and pasties on. There’s no crazy nudity unless that’s too nude for somebody, but it gets covered up pretty fast in paint.” The Armstrong resident says her foray into body painting began with esthetics training, and the realization she had more interest in make-up than nails and lashes and the like. “There’s another

woman who was just learning how to face paint and she encouraged me to start,” said Turpin. “And that was it. I just needed someone to encourage me to give it a go, and seven years later, that’s my job.” As of late, that job has kept Turpin busy throughout the region, working at farmers markets, Kelowna Rockets games and for different municipal events from Salmon Arm to Logan Lake. “I hoped that I could be this busy,” said Turpin, who last weekend had her first days off since June. “Everybody is super proud, my family is very proud I put my effort in and didn’t give up.” Turpin said the body artist community is fairly small, but the social media personalities like Kay Pike and the TV show Skin have helped boost public recognition and popularity of the art form. Turpin’s Red Barn workshop runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Admission is $20 per person. Register for the event at Red Bar or on eventbrite.ca.
