Lookout’s fate rests with government Splatsin band, Shuswap MLA onside with efforts to retain cabin. Lachlan Labere salmon arm observer

At an elevation of approximately 7,700 feet, atop a rugged, rocky mountain peak, sits a solitary cabin. Taped to its door is a stop work order, issued by the B.C. government. The notice states it was issued on Sept. 5, 2017 by the Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development, and applies to “all persons undertaking construction activities on this building.” The “building” is a 14 by 14-foot engineered refurbishment of the original Eagle Pass Summit fire lookout, originally constructed in 1922. Carried out over the past two years by volunteers and donations, this reconstruction project is currently under investigation by the ministry. Taped to the door on top of the stop work notice is a letter by Splatsin First Nation Title and Rights/ Fisheries and Wildlife manager Stuart Lee. In the letter, Lee states he has reviewed the “commendable efforts” of the volunteers, and he has found the engineered repair to exceed building codes for such a structure. “The Splatsin approves of the “Civic Good” the Lookout will provide in its service to hikers and back-country users from the Splatsin and Canadians alike,” writes Lee.

Work on the Eagle Pass Summit fire lookout, rebuilt to withstand the elements – and landing helicopters – has been put on hold while the B.C. government investigates the volunteer construction project. Onside with the Splatsin are the District of Sicamous, the City of Enderby, Shuswap MLA Greg Kyllo and Sicamous and District Chamber of Commerce and other groups and individuals, who have asked the B.C. government to not destroy the reconstructed shelter – one possible outcome of the investigation, says the ministry. The request was delivered in person to ministry representatives at the recent Union of B.C. Municipalities convention by Sicamous Coun. Gord Bushell and Columbia Shuswap Regional District Area E director Rhona Martin. The response they received wasn’t as encouraging as hoped for. “We pleaded our case, showed them photos, gave them letters of support…

Home & Land Package

They’re going to look into it,” said Bushell. “But we didn’t get that feeling where they said, ‘whoa, we’ll stop everything until we get a handle on it.’ They can’t once the investigation has started.” Kyllo applauds the effort and workmanship that went into the reconstruction. And while he wants people to follow the rules and make the appropriate permit applications, he said the volunteers were not made aware such approvals were required. “Although I have not spoken directly with anybody in compliance and enforcement, my understanding is there was some comments made, I believe at a meeting last year, where a compliance and enforcement officer made some comments where if

this had occurred in his area or jurisdiction, he’d burn it down,” said Kyllo. “That type of commentary certainly isn’t helpful. I think what really the focus of the communication now is, it’s unfortunate the appropriate permits weren’t applied for. It looks like a very well-built and sound structure, and tearing it down certainly would not prove to serve anybody other than maybe somebody’s ego.” Caught in the middle of this bureaucratic brouhaha is Sicamous resident Rene St. Onge, the person who got the ball rolling to save the historic lookout. He said the effort actually began years back in a visit to forestry officials in Vernon. “We talked to three or four officials there who

said, ‘no, they couldn’t give approval for that, even though it was an existing cabin,’” said St. Onge. “They said FrontCounter BC could, so they called over and I went there with a friend and met the manager… We had a great talk, talked for about an hour, and he was totally excited about it.” During this meeting, St. Onge asked about financial support, knowing the project would be a costly endeavour, but was told none was available. On the upside, St. Onge said he was told, ‘If you’re building a new cabin or road or trail, you need to do an application, but he said this is existing, if you want to clean it up and put the roof back on, awesome. He gives verbal approval.’” Continued on A3

Investigation could go into 2018 Continued from A1 St. Onge said he left it at that for a while and watched as the lookout deteriorated. “And then a young gentleman from Revelstoke passed away and I was like, that place needs to be cleaned up, it’s not safe and it’s such a beautiful spot with so much history,” said St. Onge. “We’ve got to bring it back to life.” St. Onge said he became good friends with a helicopter pilot who got an online fundraiser started. “He raised about 10 grand – it was way under.” As word continued to get out about the project, however, more people came onboard with donations of money, materials, labour and more. Reconstruction work began in the summer of 2016. Since then, the rock wall and foundation was professionally rebuilt. Twelve-inch Douglas fir timbers were used in the rebuilding of the upper portion of the shelter – the roof rebuilt to carry up to 100,000 pounds. A proper lightning rod was installed. Approximately $4,000 worth of windows were donated. Another donation of $5,000 included a vintage wood cookstove.

“Probably about $45,000 into it, and we’ve lifted up about 25,000 pounds of materials to reconstruct it, and we’re building it stronger so it will hopefully 100 years,” said St. Onge. Responding to accusations that all this work was done to benefit a few backcountry motorized vehicle users, St. Onge calls them 100 per cent wrong. He said access to the lookout is hikein only, and stated emphatically that its door will never be locked. “We’re building it for a legacy to the people that built the place, manned the place, worked there,” said St. Onge. Asked about the investigation, St. Onge expects it will go on into next year. Not only will this hold up finishing touches planned for the lookout (provided it’s not torn down), St. Onge sees this bureaucratic impasse holding up an accommodation management system for the lookout which, – as a positive outcome of this controversy – has garnered significant interest. “The one weekend we were up there cleaning up materials and taking it back down, some ladders and stuff, there were 25 people in one day who came

A stop-work order is taped to the lookout door, with a letter from the Splatsin commending the volunteers who rebuilt the structure. up there…,” said St. Onge. “It’s the same as the snowmobile chalets here – if some Albertans come here and want to use the chalet, they check with the chamber and say, ‘Hey, can we use the chalet?’ and they say yeah, you’ve got it. If anybody else calls, they can say there’s already somebody else in there. There’s no charge. It’s just good for tourism.” Assuming the province agrees to leave the lookout alone, St. Onge hopes that longterm upkeep remains

a volunteer effort, and not on the backs of taxpayers. “We don’t want anybody to make money off of this – we want it to be a volunteer project and everything donated,” said St. Onge. “We have a brass plaque, it’s about a $2,000 plaque being made, and everybody who has helped out and volunteered is going on it.” A petition calling on the ministry to leave the lookout as is had more than 7,000 signatures as of Oct. 9.

Teller foils scam on seniors

Business caught charging for unsolicited work. RCMP Report Disreputable individuals were sent back to the gutter after attempting to bilk an elderly couple out of their money. Sicamous RCMP Cpl. Wade Fisher credits an alert bank teller for having prevented the couple from being bilked for more than $1,000. “The client told the teller that she needed to make a large cash withdrawal to pay for the services of a gutter cleaner who had done some extra work,” reports Fisher. The bank contacted the police and, in the course of their investigation, Fisher said it was learned the couple had agreed to pay $150 to have

their gutters cleaned. When it came time to pay, however, the gutter cleaner claimed to have done some extra work, and therefore the bill would be substantially higher than initially stated. The gutter cleaner asked that the bill be paid in cash. “The gutter cleaners were questioned by police about their questionable business practices and their apparent targeting of an elderly couple,” said Fisher. “Residents are encouraged to get a written estimate before engaging the services of any contractor, especially one making unsolicited offers to perform work.”

Voters betrayed by politicians

Does it really matter what politicians say while campaigning for your vote? The latest insult to voters took place recently when Premier John Horgan proposed legislation that includes precisely what he vowed he would not do when campaigning in the spring. The B.C. NDP vowed to overhaul election financing laws by banning corporate, union and foreign donations, among other measures. But Horgan told the media before the May 9 election that taxpayers would not be funding political parties. The legislation will indeed suck money from taxpayers, to the tune of about $30 million over five years. It is something Horgan calls a “transition” fund, but it really is an about-face, a lie, a betrayal. How political parties are funded (or if they should be funded) is a debate unto itself, but to see legislation include something the NDP vowed would not be included is maddening. Look east to Ottawa, where Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s monumental 2015 campaign promise – making that year’s federal election the last to use the first-past-the-post system – was broken, with nary a scratch suffered by the Liberal machine. Maybe we’re all too busy trying to pay the bills and care for our families that we don’t have time to care. Maybe we are collectively too apathetic to care. But when a politician vows explicitly to do something (or not do something), then reverses the position shortly thereafter, there should be hell to pay. And we should care because such actions are, essentially, gouges in the rock of democracy that is looking more and more weathered. -Kamloops This Week

Fishing more about moments the great outdoors James Murray The following is reprinted from the Aug. 14, 2015 Shuswap Market News. A very wise man once told me it’s not the number or even size of fish you catch, but being out on the water that matters. My father was right. Fishing is a lot more than the simple catching of fish. It is being able to get away from everything, sitting on a lake somewhere in your boat, breathing in the cool, crisp morning air and sensing all the sights and sounds that surround you. It’s listening to nature as it whispers in your ear and being right there to witness the metamorphoses of an insect – being there as it emerges from its

watery depth to experience flight for the first time. It’s hearing the sound of an osprey as it shrieks high above, or seeing a flock of geese winging their way south and sensing the changes that are about to come with a wind that’s blowing in from the north. It’s watching the sun set at the far end of a lake and hearing the call of a loon as it cries out across the water. It’s the rustle of leaves in the fall and the sound of water lapping against the hull of your boat. It’s the warmth of the sun on your face as you watch and wait for the mist to rise from the surface of the water like time lost in a shroud of its

own making. It’s the sense of peace and tranquility that wraps itself around you like a familiar old, red Hudson Bay blanket. Yes, fishing is more than catching fish – it is each and every moment between fish. Last week, I found myself standing on the banks of the St. Mary River (here in the East Kootenay), casting my line to fish that may or may not even be there – hoping to catch but a glimpse, that momentary glint of silver moving through the runs and riffles of a holding pool that stops the breath and stirs the heart. How many times that day did I tell myself ‘this is what fishing is all about,’ just being there, casting my line on the waters? All I know for sure is that when I was standing there, knee-deep in the fast-flowing waters of that river, I

felt happy and content and, when I did finally get a fish on, the whole world stopped for a few brief, wonderfully exciting moments. I never have to remind myself of how many hours I have spent casting to little more than shadows, with little more than a glimmer of hope. But when I set my hook into the power and fury of what felt like a runaway locomotive, I was truly lost in the moment. Granted, I have probably lost as many battles as I have won over the years, but, win or lose, won or lost, I have to say I have enjoyed each and every moment spent just being out there on the water. I remember the last time I went fishing with my father. Looking back, I think he knew it would be our last fishing trip together. He wasn’t much older than I am

now, but he was tired from having worked hard all his life. I was probably responsible for aging him more than I should have, but he was happy that day, just casting his line on the water. He still had a good strong cast, far better than mine, then and now. I think he was just happy being out there. He was content. Many times I have longed to find that kind of contentedness in my life. Maybe it comes with age. I don’t know. But I do remember watching him cast his line upstream from me, and realizing just how much I owed that man. So it was last week, as I stood casting my line on the St. Mary, that I wished I could be just a little more like that man who cast his line upstream from me so long ago.

Separate the paid ads from news articles The article on GMO labelling in the Oct. 6 issue of the Shuswap Market News is a piece of paid opinion, not news. The private company that authored the article is paid to produce content for organizations or companies, and to place them in small newspapers disguised as news. The article is filled with misleading statements like this one “most

foods aren’t actually GMO at all.” The list of currently approved GE crops is almost accurate, although the Arctic Apple is now approved. What it doesn’t say is that GMO corn, soy and sugar are found in almost every processed food in one form or another, whether oil, HFCS (High Fructose Corn Syrup), lecithin or sugar. They are

not easily distinguished when they are part of the long list of ingredients. The article claims that “extensive testing” proves the safety of these foods – but almost all of this testing is done by the companies themselves, as they prohibit unbiased outside research. The small amount of research that has been done outside the companies does in fact indicate

serious health risks and environmental risks, as GE crops have led to contamination and rising rates of resistance to hardcore herbicides and pesticides. In addition, the article implies that genetic engineering is the same as traditional plant breeding. It most definitely is not, and GMO advocates are happy to talk about how different it is when they

are speaking to scientists, while claiming that it’s the same as traditional breeding when promoting GMOs to the public. I am embarrassed to see this article in our local newspaper. Please ensure that paid promotional writing is identified as such if you must use it. Rebecca Kneen

BC VIEWS Tom Fletcher Interim B.C. Liberal leader Rich Coleman used his speech at the recent Union of B.C. Municipalities convention to challenge councils on the issue of supportive housing for people with addictions and mental illness. Face down angry local voters trying to protect their neighbourhoods from needle-strewn disorder and crime, approve new housing sites wherever you can, and get ready to be tossed from office next November when you do it, Coleman told the assembled local politicians in Vancouver. That’s what former Kamloops mayor Peter Milobar did. He set up simultaneous public hearings for five supportive housing sites on the same evening, so the angry opponents would come at council in smaller groups. Now he’s a B.C. Liberal MLA, and his successor has to face city voters. To an extent, I agree with them. The “Not In My Back Yard” mentality prevents many solutions that would help the broader communi-

ty. And Coleman made housing and supporting homeless people a personal crusade for the past decade. Coleman built the government’s real estate arm, B.C. Housing, into a huge machine, taking over the notorious “single room occupancy” hotels in East Vancouver at staggering cost and rehabilitating the corrupt Portland Hotel Society to run them. He rolled that approach out to other communities, taking over aging motels and opening “low barrier” shelters. The new NDP government has picked up where he left off, promising to build and operate 2,000 modular housing units with round-the-clock staff, at a cost of $291 million over two years. The problem is that this approach is reaching for bigger and bigger Band-Aids for the welfare state’s growing wounds. The first combined Metro Vancouver-Fraser Valley homeless count came out last week. Overall homelessness is up 40 per cent since 2011, and you

don’t hear politicians promising to eliminate it any more. We’re getting past the soothing social worker talk about the “opioid crisis” too. Interviews with weary paramedics are revealing the reality on the street, where they find themselves racing to revive the same people multiple times in the same day. There is a growing segment of system users, who have decided working is for chumps, and welfare and criminal activity are a better way to keep their own personal party going. On the front lines of the police and healthcare system, they’ve got a clearer idea of who the real victims are. People with genuine wounds and illnesses struggle for help from a system run by politicians who are convinced that all of this self-destructive behaviour is a disease, and an ever-expanding nanny state is the only cure. I’ve written before about professional tentcity stage manager Ivan Drury, who has set up squats across Metro Vancouver. The first thing politicians should learn is that the angry people trying to protect their communities are not the problem.

Letters Welcome

Passion for fishing leads to fines Shuswap man breaches prohibition two weeks before its end. Martha Wickett Salmon Arm Observer

An inability to ‘just say no’ to fishing has led to hundreds of dollars in fines for a Shuswap man. Twenty-six-year-old Brady James Hareuther of Gardom Lake was in BC Provincial

Court in Salmon Arm on Sept. 26 for being unable to wait two weeks to fish in his favourite spots in the Enderby area. Judge Dennis Morgan described him as “someone who loves fishing… and is finding it amazingly diffi-

cult to stay away from it.” Hareuther had been charged previously under the Fisheries Act with ‘foul-hooking salmon,’ the judge said, a term that means hooking a fish on parts of the body other than its mouth. A

sports fishing website states that accidently foul-hooking can be common if fishing is done in a stream during salmon season. The judge pointed out that Hareuther was allowed to fish, just not in certain areas. He had already paid more

than $600 in fines. This time, he apparently couldn’t wait two weeks. “You only had two weeks to go and your probation would have ended. You had a warning but ignored it. Now you can’t fish for another 18 months…

This is a big hit for you but you have to take the Fisheries laws seriously.” Hareuther was fined $750 and is now prohibited for an additional 18 months from fishing in the Mabel Lake, Shuswap River and Shuswap Lake systems.

District bids on medical building Lachlan Labere Salmon Arm Observer

The District of Sicamous has announced a conditional purchase offer on the acquisition of the Sicamous Medical Clinic, located at 217 Finlayson Street. “Council has been pursuing additional community space for our recreation programs as well as aggressively recruiting for a second physician to improve quality health care for our residents,” said Mayor Terry Rysz in a news release. “Council de-

termined that this was an opportune time to meet both objectives by purchasing the medical clinic below its fair market value. This purchase will position council to actively recruit a second physician and nurse practitioner for our community.” The conditional purchase offer of $690,000 is below the property’s 2017 assessment value of $929,000 and appraised value of $790,000, states the release. In addition, the long-term tenants that will remain in the space yield a healthy

capitalization rate of seven per cent for the District of Sicamous. “All of these factors led to a final decision to make a purchase offer on the land and building complex. No debt will be issued, the district will be financing this acquisition through available internal resources. Outstanding conditions on the purchase offer include public consultation through a financial plan amendment and a building structural inspection, with a closing date of Nov. 10,” the release states.

Fighting pain through science.

• Larger communities such as Blind Bay and Sorrento had greater concerns about level of representation on the CSRD Board as well as autonomy in decision making. Concerns were expressed about directors from other areas making decisions about Area C services. • Concerns with local services were greater in larger communities and included issues with roads, water, sewer, lake water quality and local policing. These concerns were not related to current service failures, but relate to the idea that the CSRD may not be best suited to meet the expectations of these communities going forward.

• Maintenance and repair of local roads was an important issue in all communities. Expectations for enhanced service exist now and are expected to grow in tandem with further development. It was noted that local road concerns were most effectively managed under a municipal form of government. •Water and sewers were also cited as being important services and it was noted that grants to provide them may be more readily accessed by a municipality with its own council. •Residents in Area C are generally aware of costs, but are interested in learning about the costs associated

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

Environmental groups are expressing concern about legislation that could impact waterways in the Shuswap, including Mara Lake. the legislation that had been well-established before Harper amended it, but the Liberals have opted not to go that far at this point.” Ginsberg says he can’t understand why that is the case, other than industry advocates are pushing to maintain reduced regulation by Ottawa. Included under the expanded protective schedule would be Okanagan Lake, Kamloops Lake, Shuswap Lake, Little Shuswap Lake, Mara Lake, and Lake Revelstoke. The lake protection extends to the mouths of all connecting waterways to those lakes. Local rivers granted protection include the

Thompson River, from the South Thompson River to the Fraser River, and the South Thompson River, from Little Shuswap Lake to the Thompson River. Ginsberg says once tabled in Parliament this fall, the legislation will be referred to committee for further debate prior to final adoption. “We are waiting at this point to see what will be in it, whether there may still be a change of heart from the government regarding navigable waterway enforcement, and if not there will be one more opportunity to influence those changes during the committee hearings,”

Ginsberg said. “Our waterways, all of them, are the lifeblood of our country. For more than a century there has been effective protective legislation in place and (the Harper government) took that away in one fell swoop. “Trudeau’s government has a chance to set that right, and we still hope it chooses to do so.” A letter writing campaign this spring had the support of many area residents, including Sharon Bell of West Kelowna. “We just want to show that many of us still care about protection of our navigational waterways from untethered development,” Bell said.

Access to Canadian rivers and lakes may seem like an obvious right for all Canadians. But not so according to Ecojustice Canada, the largest legal environment advocacy group in the country. Their concern dates back to unexpected changes that former prime minister Stephen Harper’s government introduced in 2012 to Canada’s century-old Navigable Waters Protection Act, including renaming it the Navigation Protection Act. In an omnibus piece of legislation, Harper’s altered legislation ended the federal government’s requirement to carry out environmental assessment studies on lake, water or river use permit applications, and reduced the responsibility of government mandated protection to just some 20 waterways across Canada. “It was a huge loss in environment protection of our waterways and totally arbitrary at the time. There was no consultation leading up to that decision by the Harper government,” said Joshua Ginsberg, a lawyer with Ecojustice in Ottawa. “It shifted the burden

of protection of our waterways from government to the public. If someone’s right to navigation or use of a lake or river was being obstructed, they would have to sue in court. “So it was still considered unlawful but now it was up to private citizens, if they could afford it, to enforce those regulations that the federal government had previously been responsible for upholding.” In the last federal election campaign, Liberal leader Justin Trudeau promised to restore those lost waterway protection measures. Since being elected, however, the Trudeau regime has gone through a public consultation process that has led to the expected introduction of amended legislation this fall that falls short of what Ginsberg was hoping to see. “They seem to be doubling down on the scheduling aspect, including now about 100 lakes and 64 rivers across Canada that fall under federal government protection, and vague promises to improve access to protect other navigable waters,” Ginsberg said. “What we had hoped is we would return to

TRU VP dies of overdose By Kamloops This Week

Christopher Seguin’s death has been confirmed by his family as an accidental overdose. The Seguin family released a statement Monday as they learned of a news story being worked on, alleging Seguin died of an overdose while in the legislature in Victoria. Seguin, 39, was vice-president advancement and de facto spokesman for Thompson Rivers University. His work involved fundraising for the school and, on Sept. 11, Seguin travelled to Victoria to meet with members of the new NDP government. It was while in Victoria that Seguin was admitted to hospital for what TRU, in an email to staff, described as a “critical illness.” Seguin was as active in the Kamloops community as he was representing the university. He most recently helped as the city welcomed evacuees from the summer wildfires. As a member of the Rotary Club of Kamloops, he helped establish the Starfish Pack program that helps feed young children, and spent countless hours volunteering with the Kamloops Food Bank, including every food drive in the past 10 years. Feeding hungry people was a passion for Seguin, who worked with fellow Rotarians to start a monthly family meal program open to anyone to attend. He was always to be found at those events playing with the children who were there. Those meals

Seguin received a British Columbia Community Achievement Award in 2015, which cited him for his many contributions to the city. A section of the family’s statement reads, “Christopher Seguin passed away on Sept. 22, 2017, in hospital due to an accidental overdose that occurred in his hotel room. “This in no way diminishes Christopher as a loving husband and father, as well as a cherished son, brother Ken Smedley presents THE

In need of some adult supervision GLOBAL VIEWS Gwynne Dyer Here’s the scenario. Late one evening Donald Trump is watching Fox News and a report comes on that North Korea is planning to launch a missile that can reach the United States. (Kim Jongun’s regime has said it is going to do that one of these days – but only as a test flight landing in the ocean somewhere, not as an attack.) Trump misunderstands, and thinks Pyongyang is going to launch a missile AT the United States. After all, there was a graphic with the report that shows the trajectory of the North Korean missile reaching the US, and Trump trusts Fox much more than his own intelligence services. So he orders all US strategic forces to go to DEFCON 1: Defence Readiness Condition One – nuclear war is imminent. The North Koreans spot all the unusual activity in the American forces – leave cancelled in Strategic Air Command, US nuclear subs in port sailing with zero warning leaving part of their crews behind, etc. – and conclude that an American preemptive attack is imminent. The North Koreans go to their own equivalent of DEFCON 1: mobilising and dispersing their armed forces, evacuating their leadership from the capital to some bunker in the countryside, and so on. American intelligence reports all this activity, and this time Trump actually listens to them. So he orders a disarming strike on all North Korean nuclear weapons and facilities. With US nuclear weapons, of course. Nothing else would do the job. That’s how the Second Korean War starts. Not many Americans would be killed, and probably no civilians, because

in fact North Korea doesn’t yet have any long-range missiles that can accurately deliver nuclear weapons on the United States, but millions would die in both parts of Korea. With luck, the Chinese would stay out even as their North Korean ally is reduced to rubble, but who knows? It’s just a scenario, but it’s one that keeps many people awake at night – including many senior people in the US military. That’s why reports have been surfacing recently that the US Secretary of Defence, General James Mattis, the National Security Adviser, General H.R McMaster, and Trump’s Chief of Staff, General John Kelly, have made a se-

cret pact that all three will never be abroad at the same time. Why not? Because at least one very senior military officer must always be in the country to monitor orders coming from the White House, and countermand them if necessary. I cannot vouch for the accuracy of these reports, but I believe them. If one of these generals actually found himself in the position of having to stop Trump, he would face an agonizing decision. All his training tells him that he must obey civilian authority, and he will certainly be court-martialled if he disobeys a presidential order. On the other hand, he must not allow millions of human beings to die because of a stupid mistake. I’m sure they think about it, and I doubt that any of them knows which way he

would actually jump if the situation arose. Providing adult supervision is a tricky business, especially when the child is technically your superior. And having said all this, it occurs to me that some senior military officers in North Korea must face the same dilemma. They too have a child-man in charge, and they will be all too aware that if “little rocket man”, as Trump calls him, stumbles into a war with the United States, then they, their families, and practically everybody they have ever met will be killed. There is probably not going to be a Second Korean War. Probably neither set of senior officers is ever going to face this ultimate crisis. A subtle form of adult supervision is exercised on a daily basis in both capitals, because even the loosest of loose cannons has to work through

other people in order to get his orders turned into actions. But things have come to a pretty pass when we can have this discussion without sounding crazy.

Tourism hit hard by tough summer By Barry Gerding Black Press

It was a challenging summer for the Thompson-Okanagan tourism industry. Some businesses have absorbed revenue losses in the five to 20 per cent range, while others directly impacted by wildfires have been devastated. “The stories that get reported back to me, talking to people about the emotions they’ve gone through this summer, can’t help but bring a tear to your eye,” said Glenn Mandziuk, president and chief executive officer of the Thompson Okanagan Tourism Association. Within TOTA’s region, Mandziuk said Ashcroft, Spences Bridge and Cache Creek were particularly hard-hit by wildfires, so much so that TOTA has planned a marketing campaign to help draw more fall tourism interest in the Cariboo area. “We want to help try to get some cash registers ringing a bit more in that area this fall but it’s been a tough summer for many of them, no doubt about it,” Mandziuk said. Overall, spring flooding coupled with smoke in the sky for most of the summer left a negative impact across the Okanagan Valley, particularly with what TOTA calls short-haul tourism traffic—people coming from elsewhere in B.C. and Alberta. “Vancouver, Edmonton and Calgary are our core short-haul

Young Tommy Morris, played by Jack Lowden, amazes the crowds with his golf shot.

Golf flick explores class divisions Emily GarrEtt

FREE

Hearing Aid Trial

Cinemaphile Set in the breathtaking Scottish landscape of St. Andrews, Tommy’s Honour opens in 1866 when young Tommy Morris (Jack Lowden) is only 15 years old and already dreams of becoming something more than his father has planned for him. “Old Tom” Morris (Peter Mullan), despite having already made his own inerasable mark on the history of golf, is still suppressed by the mindset of the class system and believes his son should be proud to become no more than a caddie. But Tommy’s ambition spurs him on to become a professional golfer and he soon outshines his father by winning the Open Championship three times before the age of 20. With his talent drawing rowdy crowds that coin him “the dashing young man of golf,” Tommy’s fame allows him to further rebel against the gentlemen’s sneers and travel to England to become the first touring pro. Throughout his professional journey, Tommy further clashes with his parents and community, who shun his personal relationship with Meg (Ophelia Lovibond), an older woman of lower class and a shameful past. Fun Fact: The film is directed by Sean Connery’s son Jason. Tommy’s Honour shows at 5 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 14 at the Salmar Classic Theatre.

“ Why do I hear but not understand? ”

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

Spirit Quest hosts book signing on Oct. 14.

Leah Blain Observer contributor

She wasn’t sure exactly how it happened. Lorna Carleton was expecting to deal with a grizzly bear; that was the plan, but it didn’t come. “A dragon showed up in Chapter 14. It was supposed to be a grizzly bear but it didn’t show up, a dragon did. I changed the book around. I visually saw the dragon and I thought, ‘I have no choice.’ It has its own entity. I just put my hands up and thought, ‘This is how it has to go.’” Carleton is a Kamloops author of a sci-fi/ fantasy series that begins with The Dragons of Nibiru. The second book of the series will be released in December and she is currently working on the third book, slated for a spring 2018 release. In the first book Celine, the adopted daughter of a distinguished starship commander, a brilliant student, promising cadet, and secret

witch, faces a psychotic criminal who is bent on revenge against her father. When Celine is teleported into the cosmos, she finds herself stranded on the forbidden planet Nibiru. Carleton laughs at the unexpected twist that changed the course of the series. “When I’m writing, many times I don’t know what the end of the sentence is going to be. Sometimes I go to other sections and when I come back and I’m reading it I go, ‘Wow’ I don’t even remember it. Sometimes I reread stuff and make myself cry,” she says. Carleton has come a long way from her early writing days when writer’s block was just a part of life. “In elementary school, I couldn’t write a poem to save my life and it really bothered me. I remember even at the age of eight I was fascinated by words and the ability to create images in someone’s mind. I found it

Encountering and reacting to bears in the wild Hank Shelley There was recently another grizzly bear attack, this time involving a hunter in the east Kootenays. No doubt he came across a mom with cubs. The bear’s natural maternal instinct was to protect the cubs. Mr. Blackmore was fortunate he only came out of the attack with severe bites (wounds) on his legs, etc. The East Kootenay has the largest concentration of the big bruins in B.C. Bushwise hunters living in that region are aware of the situation, and with a expanding grizzly population, prepare themselves, by reading up on recent bear activity where they hunt – and pack bear spray. But over years of time, many bears have attuned themselves to an easy meal. This being the innards of a freshly

harvested deer/moose/ elk. It is a custom now, that one hunter stand by with loaded rifle while his partner clean the animal. Bears relate the sound of a rifle shot to a dinner bell. Years back, a harrowing experience awaited a young gal, pacing back and forth in the camper as her husband and a partner lay dying in the snow, atop a rugged mountain peak back and beyond Raven’s Head in the Kootenays. It was late in the afternoon and snowing when they harvested a bull elk. Placing their rifles against trees, they began to dress out the animal. Unfortunately, a grizzly was on the scree slopes below. On hearing the shot, the bear attacked, wanting the elk. The reaction time to get to their ri-

SHUSWAP OUTDOORS

fles was too late and, as the helicopter hovered over the site the next morning, with conservation officers aboard, the bear was shot and a rescue team retrieved the bodies. While still working, a group of us fishery officers had gathered at the Lillooet community hall as Gary Shelton began instruction on bear behavior, including tactics to avoid attack, reaction time if being attacked and what to do in an attack.

The final scenario of the day was each officer being pepper sprayed. This was with our own issue (the human kind), to be used in a take down situation. Bear spray, is a restricted product, containing 0.75 per cent capsaicin. Fishery officers are more prone to bear attack as each fall throughout the province, hundreds of streams must be walked to count spawning salmon entering their

natal streams. Tally’s are recorded and, historically, runs are tabulated. Each spring, during qualifications, officers must be proficient in the use of issue firearms, including shotguns. While walking the Wap Creek/Hunakwa Creek (Anstey Arm, Shuswap Lake) counting coho, we had the shotgun ready as fresh bear track was evident and the smell of bear scented the heavy cedar/hemlock along the trail. Large tracks,

the long claws evident, showed buddy the big bear was close by. Many years ago, while still operating Postill Lake fishing lodge, we always saw a big ’ol bruin feeding on grass on a landing come spring. Folks would stop and admire him. While checking a new large man-made reservoir Otto Hemmerling and John the backhoe operator stopped at the lodge for lunch break. They talked on seeing the bear break ice for a

drink at the lake. John said what would we do if the big guy charged. Otto said he’d climb a tree. The only tree. John said he’d beat Otto up the tree. Now that’s reaction time.

Managing Thanksgiving leftovers HEALTHY BITES Serena Caner Post-Thanksgiving is a time when many of must come to terms with our grocery habits. The 20-kilogram turkey seemed like a good idea, until we realize we will be eating turkey until Christmas. The mashed potatoes and stuffing were delicious but half our guests no longer eat carbs. Finding space for these amongst our other leftovers, the forgotten-now-moldyhead-of-lettuce and our collection of condiments we’ve only used once, is tricky. Barely able to close

the fridge door, we suddenly hope for that a hungry hockey team will show up to clean out the saran-wrapped-aluminum-foiled-tupperware mess that has become our fridge. The average Canadian household throws away about $1,500 of food per year. In Canada, $31 billion of food ends up in landfills or composters each year, according to a 2014 report from Value Chain Management International. Many of us could do a better job of managing our own food waste. Besides the

obvious answer of not overbuying, food wastage can be minimized by knowing a few things about your fridge: The coldest area of your fridge is the bottom shelf. This is where you should store highly perishable items such as meat and dairy. The drawers at the bottom of your fridge are low-humidity. This will extend the life of most fruits and vegetables. The fridge door is the warmest area- put condiments and more shelf-stable items here (not dairy). People are most likely to eat foods placed at the front of the top two shelves. Put leftovers that need to be eaten here. The best-before date is not an indicator of

food safety, but refers to the freshness of an unopened product. You can buy and eat foods after the best-before date has passed; however, the food may have lost some of its freshness, flavour, or texture. This means unopened dairy past its best before date may not have gone bad, so test before you toss. (I use the highly scientific eye-nose test. Is there visible mould? Does it smell off ?) Do not store bread or wine on top of your fridge. This area is very warm and may speed up the spoilage of food products. -Serena Caner is a registered dietitian who works at Shuswap Lake General Hospital.

Three success tips for small business owners (NC) Being an entrepreneur means that you’ll often figure things out as you go along, without guidance or an established structure to help you navigate. Though it is one of the most exhilarating aspects of the job, it can also be daunting, especially when you’re first starting out. Dan Kelly, CEO of the Canadian Federation of Independent Business, offers his top three tips for small business owners. 1. Make mistakes and pivot often. As a small business owner, it’s important to constantly assess what works and what doesn’t work. On a daily basis, ask yourself: “Did I meet my business goals today?” and identify some key performance indicators. This will allow you to continue doing what works, or troubleshoot problems quickly by pivoting your strategy with minimal repercussions. 2. Know your customers. It’s all about relationships and reputation. Building strong relationships with your customers takes time, but if you treat them right and do what’s best for them in the long-term, you’ll have a better chance at winning and retaining their business. It’s also a good idea to find out where your customers are spending time online or on social media and to communicate with them there. 3. Build a support network. Set yourself up for success by joining a community of other small businesses where you can gain access to invaluable industry resources. CFIB provides special-

ized business resources and makes sure the voice of independent businesses is heard on government issues that are important to your business.

In 2013, with the business growing they decided to relocate to the current location near Boston Pizza and HomeLife real Estate for additional parking and convenience for the increased customer base. In 2015 Greg partnered up with his friend Liam O’brien to assist in the growth of the water treatment division. This new division has also grown and now services residential Well water and Commercial water systems from Revelstoke to Chase. H2o4u currently sells and services systems that

Three reasons to shop small and local

(NC) Neighbourhood stores and restaurants are at the heart of Canadian communities, providing you with the products and services you need all while keeping things personal, tailored and unique. As a consumer, you can support small businesses in your own community by choosing to shop locally this season. Here are three reasons why: 1. Preserve your community’s uniqueness. Independent businesses bring character, originality and offer variety in a society that’s becoming increasingly homogenized. That special bookstore you’ve been going to since you were a kid is irreplaceable. Help preserve the one-of-a-kind gems of your community. 2. Keep the money local. The more we shop at local independent businesses, the more likely it is that money will stay in the community and be used to create jobs. Local

businesses are able to reinvest a significant portion of their revenue back into the local economy, which benefits our families, friends and neighbours. 3. More personalized service. One of the greatest aspects of purchasing from a local shop is that the owner

www.saobserver.net

really gets to know you. Small business owners know the products we buy on a regular basis and offer a personal touch as someone who cares more about providing a quality service! You can visit Shopsmallbiz.ca to find out more about how the Canadian Federation of

Independent Business (CFIB) and Interac are linking Canadians with local small business on Small Business Saturday and throughout the year. This online directory allows Canadians to find valuable offers from small businesses in their area. www.newscanada.com

MLA for Kamloops-South Thompson, Todd Stone, on the road to support his Liberal leadership bid, speaks in Salmon Arm accompanied by Shuswap MLA Greg Kyllo on Wednesday morning at the Prestige Harbourfront Resort. MLAs Barry Penner, Don McRae, Terry Lake, Claude Richmond, Kevin Krueger, Doug Horne, Sheila Orr and Susan Brice to his base, as well as Bud Smith, the former Social Credit cabinet minister and leadership candidate who has signed on as his senior advisor. Stone’s campaign co-chairs are Peter Fassbender, the former education and Translink minister who lost a rematch in Surrey-Fleetwood with the NDP’s Jagrup Brar, and Brittney Kerr, a former Vision Vancouver

board member and “millennial” federal Liberal who spent a year on the B.C. desk in Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s office. Stone describes Fassbender as a baby boomer with roots in the federal Conservative Party, a key for the B.C. Liberals as they work to hold their Liberal-Conservative coalition together. The winner, says the media-savvy Stone, will be the candidate who best articulates a vision for the province, and also has the “intangibles” to take on the NDP and Green Party and is “relatable

in Williams Lake and Yaletown and every point in between.” He’s diplomatic about his rivals, and not shy about describing what he sees as his advantages. “The intangibles that I bring to the table are that I’ll be the youngest candidate in the race at 45,” Stone said. “I’ve got three kids that are still in the K-12 education system. I’m a tech CEO, and I’m from Kamloops, which is a microcosm of the entire province. It has a lot of the urban challenges of transit and affordable housing, and amongst the highest

It’s a city that’s working its way through that transition from being solely dependent on resource extraction to the knowledge economy, and Kamloopsians recognize that the two actually go hand in hand.”

CHASE

PLAYER OF THE WEEK

Four years as transportation minister have given Todd Stone a higher profile than some B.C. Liberal leadership candidates, which is a mixed blessing. Stone is the lawand-order family man who hiked fines for distracted driving and passing a stopped school bus. He’s also the former software company CEO who promised to deliver smartphone ride sharing to the clogged streets of big cities. He didn’t deliver on that, or a promised review of what he admitted were unfair Lower Mainland bridge tolls, an issue that cost his party crucial support in Metro Vancouver in the spring election. The second-term MLA for Kamloops-South Thompson, which includes Chase, officially becomes the eighth candidate to succeed Christy Clark as of Oct. 10 with a road show starting in Surrey, home turf of rival candidate Dianne Watts. From there he went to Victoria for a technology announcement at llamaZOO, a 3D virtual reality company, then back to his home turf. Stone met supporters in Salmon Arm Wednesday morning, where he was accompanied by Shuswap MLA Greg Kyllo. In an interview with Black Press, Stone listed a notable group of supporters, with a promise of more to come. Sitting MLAs Kyllo, Peter Milobar (Kamloops North Thompson), Coralee Oakes (Cariboo North) and Jane Thornthwaite (North Vancouver-Seymour) are supporting him. In a contest where party members vote online in early February, Stone adds former

Heat serve up weekend turkeys Team loses to Summerland Steam, Osoyoos Coyotes. By Scott Koch Contributor

that provide excellent coaching, accommodation, meals, travel and support. There were but two appreciative players, the more than capable goaltenders Conor Webb and Mathew Ens, who did everything possible to give their teammates the opportunity for success. So Friday night in Summerland, the Heat ended the second period with a 3-1 lead.

Forgetting there were still 20 minutes left in the contest, the Heat allowed the Steam to score four unanswered goals to claim a 5-3 victory, the last one a shorthanded empty-net tally that resulted in a freezer-burnt, under-cooked turkey. Having that on their young minds, they unloaded the bus at the Sun Bowl Arena in Osoyoos, and then reloaded it afterwards

for a long trip back to Chase. Totally outplayed, they allowed two goals in the first, two goals in the second and only one in the third, before the Heat ruined a shutout bid by the Coyotes. The final, 5-1 for Osoyoos. Perhaps it is time to shape up or ship out as the 4-5 Heat find themselves sliding down the KIJHL standings. The loyal fans next

INFORMATION DESIGNED TO PROMOTE AND ENHANCE YOUR WELLBEING

Allergies and chiropractic FAMILY CHIROPRACTIC Dr. Warren Gage In my 20 years as a practicing Chiropractor I have adjusted numerous patients that subsequently reported an improvement in their seasonal allergies. How can spinal adjustments to correct vertebral subluxations (misalignments/stuck patterns) in the spine help with allergies? Let me explain. Most medical schools and medical literature work on the assumption that allergies are the result of exposure to high levels of pol-

lens. Antihistamine drugs are then prescribed as a solution to this uncomfortable reaction but a large price of the puzzle often gets overlooked. If the pollen is everywhere, why do only some individuals suffer from allergies while others do not? This is where wellness Chiropractic and medicine diverge in their beliefs. Medicine has the technology (drugs) to reduce the allergic reaction in the body, but the Chiropractic model focusses on fix-

ing the cause of the issue in order to obtain result-based outcomes that improves health and vitality. This belief is supported by the fact that if 10 people walk through a pollen-filled field, only 3 will experience an allergic reaction. If pollen caused seasonal allergies, all 10 people would be affected. So, the difference is within the individuals and whether their body has the ability to be exposed to an irritant like pollen and regulate itself sufficiently to not over-react with an allergic reaction. The central nervous system is the part of the body that directs

the immune system to either react or not react to stressors in its environment (like pollen or cat dander for example). The spine is intimately tied to the central nervous system. Maintaining a proper functioning spine can assist the body to heal and prevent disease and dysfunction. A study published in 2010 in The Journal of Chiropractic and Osteopathy measured immune function following a Chiropractic adjustment and found higher levels of immune-producing antibodies in the blood. It is these antibodies that help control the effects of allergy inducing

substances. Chiropractic care is not a specific treatment for allergies; however, patients can experience a reduction in allergy symptoms when under care, due to the effects the adjustment has on nervous system function. Every human in the same vicinity will be exposed to the exact same enviromental allergens, but people with a healthy nervous system will find they are better equipped to cope and adapt to their environment. Dr. Warren Gage is a family wellness Chiropractor who can be reached at Harbourfront Family Chiropractic at (250) 803-0224.

October is ADHD Awareness Month: 5 Things You Might Not Know About the Condition (NC) Many people are settling into school routines, jobs and internships this time of year, but managing a busy schedule can be particularly challenging for the one-in-20 school-aged children and four per cent of adults diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Furthermore, recent data suggests that stigma and confusion still persist around ADHD: a new poll by Purdue Pharma (Canada) showing that close to one third of Canadians

surveyed mistakenly identified ADHD as a mental health condition.“ADHD is actually a neurodevelopmental disorder that has been clinically observed for more than 100 years,” says Dr. Annick Vincent, a psychiatrist and ADHD specialist. “It’s a chronic condition characterized as a deficit of the nervous system resulting in inattention, hyperactivity, impulsivity and often emotional hyper-reactivity. Science has shown that genetic and biologic factors can be involved in the develop-

ment of this disorder.” Learn about five common misconceptions about ADHD: 1. Males are more likely to have ADHD – 42 per cent of Canadians surveyed believed that ADHD was more prevalent in males; this is a myth. However, males may show more of the visible “hyperactive” symptoms, rather than the less obvious “inattentive” symptoms and are possibly diagnosed more often. 2. ADHD is a madeup diagnosis – ADHD is recognized by all major medical associ-

ations and government health agencies. Its existence is supported by over a century’s worth of scientific evidence. 3. ADHD is over-diagnosed – Although ADHD is the most prevalent childhood psychiatric disorder in Canada, it remains under-recognized and underdiagnosed, despite being one of the most treatable psychiatric disorders in the country. 4. ADHD gets worse as the day goes longer – Though we all lose stamina at the end of a long day, people with ADHD experience

symptoms of their condition from the moment they wake, with these symptoms fluctuating throughout the day. 5. People with ADHD will eventually outgrow it— About 80 per cent of children maintain their diagnosis into adolescence and at least 60 per cent remain symptomatic in adulthood.

CRYPTO FUN

Take a few minutes for yourself this week, Pisces. It is important to have some alone time so you can gather your thoughts.

Taurus, racing through all of your activities will get you somewhere fast, but the results may be sloppy. Slow down and see the bigger picture.

GEMINI

Gemini, if you continue to vacillate on a decision, pretty soon you will begin to doubt your decisionmaking abilities. Trust your intuition.

CANCER

Taking everything onto your shoulders is one way to get noticed, Cancer. But it’s also a way to burn out. When others offer to lighten your load, take them up on it.

TOLLEY, CORALIE BLANCHE (née Cameron) 1957-2017 It is with profound sorrow that we announce the passing in Salmon Arm Hospital, of Coralie Tolley, who was taken from us far too soon at the age of 60, after a courageous battle against cancer. Coralie was predeceased in 2011 by her mother, Beatrice Cameron, in 2003 by her brother Byam Jr.(Margaret) and in 1996 by her father Byam Cameron Sr. She has left behind her son Matt Tolley, his wife Kirsten and their son Cameron of Penticton, and her daughter Jenna Roberts, also of Penticton, as well as her partner, Larry Fitzpatrick of Salmon Arm who steadfastly led the bedside vigil during her last weeks and was a source of great comfort. She is also survived by her sister Bonnie (Paul) from Gibsons and her brother Alan (Melissa) from Abbotsford. Other family members who mourn her include: nieces Leigh-Anne Cameron (Rigo) of Ladner, Alison Primerano (Mike) of Vancouver, Crystal Cameron of Vancouver as well as Bella and Sasha Cameron of Abbotsford; nephews Victor Cameron (Heather) from Vancouver and Mackenzie Cameron of Abbotsford, and grandniece Emily Primerano and grand-nephew Vin Primerano of Vancouver; as well as her loving cousins.

Coralie became a noted and well-respected businesswoman in Salmon Arm and organized many charitable events in her community. Coralie loved to travel, and over the last few years she visited several exotic places. Coralie was kind, generous, passionate and loving. She adored her family, her friends, her many cats and the music of U2. Coralie’s special bond with her cats was demonstrated when her cat fizzy came to be with her in the hospital, and stayed with her until the end. In lieu of flowers, we would encourage those wishing to make a contribution, to contribute to the Salmon Arm SPCA, 5850 Auto Road SE Salmon Arm, BC, V1E 2X2, in honour of the special bond that Coralie had with her animals and community.

“When someone you love becomes a memory the memory becomes a treasure” DESAUTELS, STEPHEN MICHAEL Stephen Michael Desautels passed away on September 27, 2017 in Blind Bay, British Columbia at the age of 63. Predeceased by his father, Mickey Desautels, in 2007. Steve is survived by his children Lindsey Bell and Michael Desautels, and his grand daughter Addison Bell. Steve is also survived by his mother Gwendoline Desautels nee Fraser and his brother Howard (Ellen) Desautels and his sisters Jackie Desautels and Carolynne (Brent) Turner. Steve was born in Montreal, Quebec on September 21, 1954 and was the eldest child to Mickey and Gwen. They later moved to Rosemere, Quebec where Steve was raised and went to school and made many lasting friendships. In the late 1970’s Steve decided to move out west to Canmore, AB where he continued to make lasting impressions on friends and had his 2 beautiful children with Blythe Cooper. In 1986 Steve decided to embark on his schooling journey at the University of Guelph where he took his diploma in Turf Management which ultimately allowed him to never work a day in his life, taking care of the golf course. Steve truly loved his golf game. There wasn’t a week that went by where he wasn’t on the course. He loved spending time with his family and friends and left an impression on everyone he met. He enjoyed spending time in his yard and looking out over the lake enjoying a beer or 2 and chatting with the locals! We will miss his smile, his laugh, his crazy sense of humour but mostly his love. A celebration of life will take place Saturday, October 14th at 1:00PM at Shuswap Lake Estates Golf and Country Club. Online condolences may be sent to Steve’s family through his obituary at www. bowersfuneralservice.com.

Women still trailblazing Martha Wickett Salmon Arm Observer

When Tricia Martin and Kelly Megyesi played select soccer together in Ontario about four decades ago, they were breaking new ground. But neither expected they’d be blazing trails together in their fifties. The women met as teens playing on a competitive-level girls soccer team in Toronto, the first of its kind. Megyesi, who now lives in Vernon, recounts how her three brothers all played soccer and her mom thought she should have the same opportunity. A four-team league was formed around 1971, possibly the first girls’ league in Canada, she thinks. The next year more teams were formed and, in the third year, a competitive level was added. “In Toronto in boys, there was house and competitive. It took us two seasons to get to that,” she says. She and Martin, an avid soccer player and now-retired high school PE teacher in Salmon Arm, played together on a team in the newly formed competitive league. The world of travelling to play opened up to them. “It was one of those weird things, because we were a new thing, we got to travel so we got to know each other fairly well. I remember her mom, as we went to the States a couple of times on a big charter bus,” says Martin. Martin didn’t come west until she went to UBC in 1985 for her teaching certificate. She played on the women’s soccer team there and, once again, the paths of the two women crossed. “Kelly said she actually remembered seeing me at UBC because her brother played at UBC the year I did.” When Martin moved to Salmon Arm and began playing in the North Okanagan league, she spotted

Megyesi, who was playing on a Vernon team. “I was looking at this person and saying, ‘I think I know you.’ They’ve since learned they’ve had something of a shared history. They’ve both played in world masters tournaments on different teams. They’ve both coached girls’ soccer teams over the years, giving back to the sport. Martin has also been running Girls Only Soccer in Salmon Arm for more than two decades while Megyesi has coached with Special Olympics for more than 20 years, mostly soccer. “I think it’s amazing how far female soccer has come in a very short time,” says Martin, re-

ferring to the Canadian women’s team. Fast forward to 2017, and along came the 55+ Games. This was to be the first year women’s soccer was offered. Women like Megyesi and Martin, who had been trailblazers back in the ’70s, were now of an age where they could participate. They were instrumental in making certain women’s soccer proceeded in the Games, when it looked like there might not be enough players. This inaugural year, there were eventually three teams: one from Vancouver, one from Vancouver Island and one from the Okanagan-Shuswap. The

Okanagan-Shuswap squad proudly claimed silver. “I’m happy we did it,” says Megyesi, describing it as one of soccer’s magical moments. “It’s almost like when we first started with soccer. That was four teams, this is three teams.” She predicts it won’t be long before the women’s soccer component of the 55+ Games will become much bigger, much more competitive. “It was just pretty special to be in the first year where we could come together as a team.” Martin is equally pleased to have played on the team and with Megyesi. “It’s a celebration, being lucky enough to have been involved in sports my whole life as a female. Probably my longest connections, my life-long friends, have been through sport,” she says. “Seeing someone again, doing some remembering together and playing together, I think that’s awesome.” She adds, with a laugh: “We’re still moving and we proudly display our medals.”

Invasive vine choking Salmon Arm foreshore Get out your best pair of garden gloves and go to battle for the Salmon Arm foreshore. For the past couple of years, the Shuswap Naturalist Club and Salmon Arm Bay Nature Enhancement Society have been tackling a “growth” problem in the SABNES nature sanctuary along the foreshore.

... Woody nightshade has taken over large parts of the marsh, choking out native species that create suitable habitat and nesting material for fish and birds.

the landfill. The target area for the weed pull on Oct. 18 will be a section of trail between the beaver pond and Christmas Island. The Columbia Shuswap Invasive Species Society supports these weed pulls by providing bags, gloves (parts of the plant are somewhat toxic) and

by paying the costs for access to the CSRD landfill. Willing workers are needed to help carry out this activity. If you can lend a hand for a few hours from 8:45 a.m., go to the entrance gate of the nature reserve. “Be sure to wear old clothes and waterproof footwear,” says

McDonald. “We are also looking for a few pickup trucks to haul away the many bags of plants that we will collect. Let’s keep our foreshore environment a healthy and inviting place for wildlife.” For more information, email mcdonald@airspeedwireless. ca, or call Ed McDonald at 250-835-8802.
