Toddler to get bone marrow transplant Susan Zielinski Black Press

The family of a Salmon Arm toddler are thankful for the support from friends and strangers as they wait for her bone marrow transplant to fight a rare and aggressive form of cancer. Lorraine Pasemko said blood transfusions for her 17-month-old granddaughter Alice aren’t helping her as much anymore. Alice’s three-year-old brother Anthony, who was not the best match, will be her bone marrow donor because a match could not be found with 10 million donors in the world-wide donor bank. “They have resorted to going back to Anthony. That’s all they

have left to try,” mally seen in children. Pasemko said. Pasemko, a retired educational assistant Alice is scheduled to start chemotherat Red Deer’s Eastview apy soon and the Middle School, said her transplant is schedformer co-workers conuled for Nov. 6, she sidered bone marrow said. tests when they found Alice is being treatout about Alice, but ed at B.C.

Cleaning up after windstorm Downed trees, wires knock out power to many residents. Barb Brouwer Salmon Arm Observer

Many Shuswap residents were left in the dark after Tuesday’s powerful windstorm. Hardest hit areas were Salmon Arm, Vernon, Nakusp and the Kootenays. B.C. Hydro rep Jen Walker-Larsen says that as of 7:30 Wednesday morning, just over 38 separate outages, affecting 1,800 people, remained in the Thompson-Shuswap area, many of them in the North Shuswap and others on Mabel Lake Road and Grindrod. The province had about 500 outages Tuesday afternoon and crews had reduced the number to 120 across the province by Wednesday morning. “We do monitor for windstorms and had geared up,” Walker-Larsen says. “We had extra crews rolling in as soon as the storm hit.” Environment Canada meteorologist Doug Lundquist says the high-powered storm was unusual. “It’s really rare that there’s any storms that develop as they cross the Interior; usually they die out over the mountains,” he says. “This was a low-pressure system that blew up as it crossed over the B.C. Interior.” Lundquist says Kamloops scored a gust of 104 km/h, due to the fact the wind was coming from the west and Kamloops is in an east-west valley. “There have been roughly only a dozen events like that since 1955, that’s in 60 years,” he says. “Salm-

on Arm gusted to 57 km/h, but I am but sure it was higher more towards Kamloops.” The windspeed for Salmon Arm is recorded by a small weather station located in a fairly protected area near Shuswap Lake. BC Hydro notes crews are working in the usual manner, targeting larger pockets of customers first to get as many people back online as fast as possible. Walker-Larsen says they hopes to get the Squilax-Anglemont Road area back on by 10 a.m. Wednesday, but couldn’t be sure. “For other folks it’s pretty patchy as there are a number of outages that are affecting small pockets of customers,” she says, noting that crews may have to be re-deployed if an approaching storm causes damage elsewhere. “It’s always a challenge because there’s a lot of damage to the system and we’re still getting reports of damage this morning.” Walker-Larsen expressed appreciation for firefighters and other emergency response personnel who respond to downed wires and keep areas safe until BC Hydro

Firefighters keep watch on a line downed by the windstorm on 11th Ave. SE on Tuesday, Oct. 17. crews arrive on scene. People are advised not to attempt to remove tree branches from power lines by themselves. Anyone who comes across a downed power line should assume it’s live and call 911. Lundquist meanwhile, says another series of storms is lining up in the Pacific. He says the next one is more normal in that it will bring rain without damaging winds. It is also expected to dump snow at mountain passes on the Trans-Canada Highway. “The problem I’ve

seen on the satellite is one train of solid cloud from the B.C. coast to Japan, with little breaks in between that look like commas,” he says. “What it means for us is storm after storm. A ridge of high pressure is set to build at the beginning of the week but it’s not going to be warm.” On a brighter note, Lundquist says that while they are harder to forecast, there are often sunny breaks between the systems. His advice? When the sky does clear for a few hours, get out and enjoy.

Fire destroys Ranchero home Barb Brouwer Salmon Arm Observer

A father and his two teenaged children are safe, but their Ranchero home is a write-off. An early morning fire completely destroyed the family home, with Ranchero Fire Department responding to a call at 3:40 a.m., Tuesday, Oct. 17. After responding to the blaze at 8205 Tatlow Rd., firefighters called Enderby for mutual assistance to extinguish the blaze. Some 20 firefighters fought the blaze in the

single-storey residence. Columbia Shuswap Regional District fire services co-ordinator Sean Coubrough says the fire is not considered to be suspicious. “The house was undergoing renovations and they have no idea how the fire started,” says Coubrough, noting the matter is under investigation. The family, meanwhile, is receiving assistance from Shuswap Emergency Social Services.

Association says don’t give cash to panhandlers Martha Wickett Salmon Arm Observer

It’s mid-October, and panhandlers are still on the streets of Salmon Arm. This fact has prompted a renewed reminder from Downtown Salmon Arm. Manager Lindsay Wong is re-emphasizing the message from a DSA newsletter entitled, The Problem of Panhandling. She says public education is important, particularly discouraging people from giving to panhandlers, and instead to organizations that help those in need. The newsletter also includes a Survival Guide made up by the Canadian Mental Health Association, outlining resources. “They’re being successful downtown and that’s why they’re continuing to hang out down there,” she says of panhandlers. The DSA attended meetings in early summer with the city’s social impacts committee and the RCMP to discuss approaches. There was no simple solution, Wong

explains, so the newsletter was created after checking with communities such as Vernon and Kelowna that are experiencing similar issues. “With cooler weather, we’re still seeing quite aggressive panhandling on the streets and loitering,” Wong said, noting the DSA is only one player in a much broader city issue.

Lindsay Wong downtown salmon arm

The term aggressive has different meanings, she says, but adds police have encountered some aggression. Sometimes just having someone sitting on a bench where you want to sit or in an area you need to frequent can be intimi-

dating to some people, she says. One of the possible enforcement tools listed in the newsletter is a requirement for panhandlers to have solicitation permits. Wong says the city’s perspective is that they wouldn’t be effective and it doesn’t wish to pursue that route. While the newsletter states that “food, shelter and other support services are available for those in need,” the town has a homeless shelter only from Nov. 1 to March 31. Organizations like the CMHA have been working hard at procuring more low-income housing. In an August interview with Salmon Arm RCMP Cpl. Scott Lachapelle, who has worked in communities with similar problems, he said Salmon Arm doesn’t have the resources such as shelters that vulnerable people can rely on. He favours donating to organizations aimed at getting people into housing, rather than throwing money into a hat.

Canada’s band, Canada’s man

Wednesday was sombre across the nation as we learned that the evening prior, with his children and family nearby, Gordon Edgar Downie passed away at 53, after a hard-fought battle with brain cancer. It was only two years ago that the Tragically Hip frontman and lyricist announced he had been diagnosed with Glioblastoma, an aggressive cancer that promptly put Gord, and the band’s life into perspective. The Hip hit the road, playing every major Canadian city — sometimes twice — over the course of the summer of 2016 because Gord said he “wanted to say good-bye face to face-to-face.” If you were fortunate enough to be there, you might remember it as the moment you started to brace yourself for the inevitable, as you stood under the same roof as those boys from Kingston, probably for the last time. That didn’t make Wednesday any easier. It’s rare that you get that kind of opportunity to bid farewell to anyone before their passing, let alone someone you’ve likely never met (but felt you knew your whole life). Since the band first took the stage in 1984, they continued to throw the best parties in some of Canada’s biggest and smallest towns. The Tragically Hip was your grandpa’s band, your buddy’s band, and your band. No one loved Canada, with all its good and the bad, more than Gord. No one straddled the line of celebrity and downto-earth everyman more than Gord. And no one looked better in denim than Gord. -Goldstream News

sockeye fisheries hinder recovery the great outdoors James Murray While driving to the Coast a few weeks ago, the last week of September to be precise, I noticed how the leaves had not even begun to turn colour. Odd I thought for this late in the fall. Driving back along Highway 1 a week after Thanksgiving, I was amazed at the palette of reds, ambers and golden yellows that coloured the landscape. It truly was a magnificent sight. Standing on the banks of the Adams River the other day I found myself once again, in awe of nature and the plethora of colours that surrounded me – until I looked down into the waters of the river and my heart sank. I was totally devastated by the lack of salmon. I remember standing on the banks of the Adams, marveling at the sheer numbers of salmon that had come to spawn. Those numbers were nothing compared to what they used to be. Each year they become

less and less. No longer does the river turn red with spawning sockeye. I stood there wondering if the day will ever come when sockeye numbers return to what they once were –or anything close. There is plenty of blame to go around – over-fishing by both commercial and First Nations fishers, poaching, pollution are all part of the problem – the list goes on and on. Pointing the finger, however, will not solve the problem unless of course, we are talking about the government. Salmon come under the auspices of the federal government. If you were to put things into government speak, one might say “perhaps the real problem here is that currently there doesn’t seem to be any sort of solution to the problem.” The situation is far from being funny though. We need solutions now, desperately, before it’s too late. It is the current federal government

that is responsible for putting those solutions into place. What ever happened to the recommendations made by the $37 million Cohen Commission? Way back in 2009, when the sockeye returns had become disturbingly low, the federal government created a public inquiry (the Cohen Commission) to determine just exactly what was happening to all the disappearing sockeye salmon. The commission’s Final Report: The Uncertain Future of the Fraser River Sockeye, was heralded at the time as being “a blueprint for salmon conservation.” The report made a total of 75 recommendations. It was tabled in the House of Commons back on Oct. 31, 2012. That was five years ago, yet few if any of the recommendations put forward have actually been put into place. Instead, the federal government has simply stood by and watched as sockeye salmon numbers have steadily declined. As it happens, I was on the Fraser River a few weeks ago sturgeon fishing and it came up in conversation as to what is happening with the sockeye salmon. We had been watching a number of small boats haul-

ing their nets out onto the river. I said that this year’s Adams River run was going to be the smallest of its fouryear cycle so there probably wouldn’t be a lot of fish returning to spawn. I never imagined the run would be as small as it was and, based on what I saw the other day, as well as the returns over the past 10 years or so, I’m not really altogether sure if the sockeye are ever going to make a comeback. I know they certainly won’t have a chance as long as there is any sort of fishery on the Fraser that can net them before they ever make their way to the Adams. The commercial, First Nations and sport fisheries all have to recognize the fact that the sockeye fishery has to be totally closed until such time as sockeye numbers come back if the Adams River run is ever going to have even the slightest chance of survival. Best of luck to any government who tries to put that one through. Nature is truly wondrous, but it can only do so much to heal the damage that we have done. Sadly, we have to look to ourselves – and our government – to fix the damage that we have done. Like I said, best of luck.

Midget ‘Tips take two The 2017-18 hockey season began for the Rona Midget T3 Silvertips hockey team last Saturday, as they faced off against the Knights at the Enderby arena. The Tips, backstopped by a strong effort from goaltender Tristan Reynolds, scored early and never really looked back in this one, skating to 9-2 victory. Taylor Howard opened the scoring for the Silvertips just a minute and a half into the game on the power play, with a hard wrist shot. He’d get his second power play marker later in the first, and with time winding down in the opening frame, Devon Gard-

ner would pot his first. Ty Bailey would cash in just 16 seconds later. After a scoreless second, the Tips got rolling much the same as the first. Connor Kociuba would get his first five minutes in while Howard completed the hat-trick a few minutes later, and Brayden Costa scored just a minute after that. Scott Rokosh buried his first of the season late in the third, flying in off the right wing to tuck it 5-hole, and Bryant Cumming rounded out the scoring for Salmon Arm. The Silvertips headed west to face Merritt on Sunday, squeaking out a hard-fought 7-6 victory. Kociuba opened

the scoring. But Merritt would tie it up and then take the lead later in the first, before Costa would knot it up again. Merritt scored twice to take a 4-2 lead, but the Tips weren’t ready to fold just yet. Howard was the recipient of a sweet feed from Lucas Piekarczyk to get the Tips within one, and Marino Bordin would get things squared up early in the third. Merritt would again take the lead, but Bordin tied it back up. Caden Dehoog would get what proved to be the game winner just 19 seconds later. The Tips are idle this weekend, before hosting their home tournament the week after.

Missy has had issues with ear infections, so it is a good idea that only people she knows well should rumple her head. Because of this older children, (ie teens) are a better fit for her. She likes other dogs but apparently is not as good with poultry. So if you are sometimes feeling a little bit older yourself but still young at heart too, Missy may be the companion for you.

Bringing the wilderness inside Barb Brouwer Salmon Arm Observer

Join bestselling author Chris Czajkowski and her gregarious and lovable pack dog Harry for a slide shows based on her new book, Harry: A Wilderness Dog Saga, which provides a fascinating depiction of living in the wilderness – from a dog’s eye view. Czajkowski’s presentation, which will be followed by book signings, is takes place at the South Shuswap Branch of Okanagan Regional Library at 1 p.m. Friday, Oct. 27. Featuring photos, illustrations and stories about their other canine companions, the slide presentation portrays their off-thegrid life and how Czajkowski established an ecotourism business, built cabins by hand and scratched out a

living for herself and the pack. Harry: A Wilderness Dog Saga, which is written entirely from Harry’s perspective, is an adventure story that combines Harry’s own observations about his years with Chris with reminiscences from his other canine companions (wise Badger, beautiful Ginger and his literary predecessor Lonesome). He describes how, living in the remote wilderness, the dogs have a rich life, although one not without its difficulties. Often residing in areas accessible only by float plane, they have encountered grizzlies and cougars, slept in the snow, hiked with packs of food and equipment, and gotten into some perilous scrapes. Harry relates these stories with good humour and many

observations about quizzical human behaviour. Czajkowski lives in a small community in the B.C. interior and has written 12 books about her nearly 40 years of wilderness living, including Snowshoes and Spotted Dick, Letters from a Wilderness Dweller, Wildfire in the Wilderness, Ginty’s Ghost: A Wilderness Dweller’s Dream Published by Harbour Publishing, and Lonesome: Memoirs of a Wilderness Dog published by TouchWood Editions. These events are made possible with the support of the Okanagan Regional Library, the Salmon Arm, South Shuswap Friends of the Library and the Canada Council for the Arts.

Nursing care top notch I write this letter to demonstrate the quality of nursing care which I experienced here in Salmon Arm. In March of this year during an accident, I sustained a bad scrape and several puncture wounds to my leg. My doctor referred me to the ambulatory care unit. I cannot say enough about the level of specialized wound

care these nurses offered me. They are remarkable individuals in the consistent practice of their specialty, which includes exacting attention to all details towards my recovery, and unfailing patience and encouragement they expressed to me during a stressful healing process. Any office or corporate team could borrow

a page from their professional manner. We are indeed very fortunate to have this level of specialized wound care in our community. In my opinion, and very likely, as well as that of other patients remain grateful to these professionals of the nursing service. Jessica Hauser

Suspect in fatal crash now charged in robbery sisting the same officer, possession of stolen property – a Kawasaki motorcycle, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle and breaching bail by carrying a knife. Through Chilliwack

The man who allegedly robbed a jewelry store last month before fleeing in a stolen vehicle that later crashed, killing a passenger, has been charged with break and enter. Anthony Creed Cortez will appear in court in Nelson on Nov. 14 on charges of break and enter and disguising his face with intent to commit an offence. Cortez allegedly robbed Ted Allen Jewellery in Nelson on Sept. 11 of $30,000 worth of merchandise. Cortez has not been charged in the Sept. 11 collision near Hope, where he is thought to have been driving a stolen SUV that crashed into a highway maintenance vehicle. Hope traffic services have stated their suspect is in police custody on a matter unrelated to the crash, and they can’t reveal the name until charges are laid. The driver of the stolen SUV is alleged to have left the crash scene, as well as his fatally injured passenger, by stealing a Ford F350 truck from a Good Samaritan who had stopped to help. Danielle Charlton, 35 and a mother of four, was the passenger who died at the scene. Along with the latest charges from Nelson, Cortez stands charged with several offences from April through June filed by Chilliwack police, along with several from Wednesday, Sept. 20 from Revelstoke, when he was arrested there.

police, Cortez is also charged with assaulting Danielle Charlton on April 16 of this year. Other charges include breaching a no-contact order with Charlton four times – one in

April, one in May and two in June. On June 22, he is also charged with obstructing police. Cortez appeared via video in Salmon Arm provincial court on Sept. 25 from the Oli-

ver Correctional Centre on the Revelstoke and Chilliwack charges. He is also set to reappear for a bail hearing on Nov. 21. - With files from the Nelson Star

Anthony Cortez and Danielle “Deedee” Charlton, are seen in these undated Facebook images. Cpl. Thomas Blakney of the Revelstoke detachment, who arrested the suspect on Sept. 20, told Black Press that an initial report to police came from a witness who had recognized a distinctive motorcycle they’d seen reported as stolen on social media. When police approached, the driver fled, going through a road checkpoint. “We didn’t engage in pursuing him, he was going at a high rate of speed,” Blakney said. However, police had reason to believe he was low on fuel, and thought he would attempt to steal some and go to ground. “With assistance from eyes in the sky, and investigative police work,

we found him.” The suspect was located at Canyon Hot Springs campground, allegedly trying to steal fuel from campers. When told he was under arrest, he jumped on the motorbike but it wouldn’t start, Blakney recounts. “Most people would get off and run,” he says, but the suspect didn’t. Blakney thought he might be about to produce a weapon, and managed to kick over the bike, with the suspect falling to the ground. A foot pursuit through the forest ended with the man arrested. Stemming from the arrest, Cortez is charged with assaulting a police officer, re-

Back to the land in the 21st century SHUSWAP PASSION Jim Cooperman There is a slowly growing movement back to the land, as more 20 and 30 yearolds move to the country and take up farming. I recently visited Spotted Moose Farm in the hills above Celista, where youthful energies are achieving success using alternative permaculture techniques instead of the traditional tillage system. The owners, Chris Pisesky and Sandy Ouellet, envision far more than just growing food, as they hope to create a school and inspire others to follow in their footsteps. In just their second year on 160 acres, they are coping well with the challenges of the heavy workload, finding helpers, weather, pests and running a business. A tall fence to keep out the deer surrounds a three-acre market garden where they use a bio-intensive method developed in European small farms. This natural, organic technique depends on building soil fertility using crop rotations and the addition of compost and manures to nurture the underground soil food web. Instead of rototilling

or ploughing, they use a hand tool called a broadfork that looks like a giant pitchfork with two handles. Although it is time consuming and physically demanding, use of the tool loosens the soil in the permanent raised beds, while protecting the underground microbial networks that naturally foster fertility. In addition, they use a walk-behind tractor with implements that fit their 30-inch wide garden beds. Along the edge of the market garden is a special, self-fertilizing and self-watering Hulgelkultur bed. Buried four to six-inches below this bed is poplar wood that is slowing decomposing and thus both storing moisture and releasing nutrients to the roots of the vegetables growing above. In addition to their market garden where they are still harvesting greens and root crops, they built two greenhouses. Tomatoes fill their largest greenhouse and are grown vertically using strings attached to the rafters. Another shed houses their micro-greens operation, where they grow a variety of tasty

greens including pea and sunflower shoots, as well as sweet corn, fenugreek and chervil. They are also raising free-range, heirloom pigs using an electric fence powered by a solar panel that they can move around their fields. As well, they raise ducks, chickens, turkeys, bees and goats. It is one thing to produce the food, but another to sell it and on this front they are doing well. In addition to farm gate sales and local farmers markets, they sell their produce through a community supported agricultural (CSA) program of weekly vegetable box deliveries to customers throughout the Shuswap and as far away as Vernon. Key to their success are their restaurant customers, including the Quaaout Lodge, who they supply year-round

thanks to their micro-greens operation. This summer, the Spotted Moose Farm hosted a farm tour and potluck organized by the Young Agrarians, a Canadian-wide network devoted to fostering ecologically balanced and organic farming by connecting young people to farming opportunities. Local coordinator, Emily Jubenvill, has been working with the Shuswap Food Action Co-op to identify leasing opportunities. So far, 42 Salmon Arm farms have been identified for potential leases. This winter, the two groups plan to set up a “match-making” event to connect potential young farmers with these local farms. Certainly more efforts are needed to facilitate the youth farming movement, as the statistics show an alarming trend. The

farm population has been shrinking as now fewer than two per cent of Canadians live on a farm. The average age of a farmer in Canada is 55, and only nine per cent are under the age of 35. Their average income is actually a loss and half of all farmers depend on off-farm employment. Fortunately for young farmers like Chris and Sandy, their goals are not financial, as it is the outdoor, healthy, self-reliant lifestyle that they cherish. They are firmly opposed to what they view as a corrupt, corporate economic system dependent on resource depletion and increased levels of toxic chemical pollution, Instead of protesting, they have committed to a life devoted to ecological sustainability and helping others achieve similar goals.

Leah Blain The red walls were the perfect background. The Shuswap Needle Art Guild held a special show in honour of Canada’s sesquicentennial at the Mall at Piccadilly and the red walls added to the Canadian theme. “Two years ago we thought Canada 150 is coming up, we should recognize it. We should show images of Canada. We wanted it to be something special,” says Shuswap Needle Arts Guild president Sandra Baker. And so it was. More than 20 artisans took part and put in more than100 pieces. Throughout the week many people stopped by, drawn in by the impressive artistry. At one end were several eightinch quilted squares, done by the Di-versity Heritage Quilt Group, each adorned in some way with a poppy to honour the men and women who served in the armed forces. There were other military themed pieces such as war planes done in needle point, but the show celebrated all that was Canadian from salmon, geese, beavers and moose to provincial flowers, landscapes depicting

our northern climate, trains, RCMP and even a homemade Hudson Bay coat. And of course, the Maple leaf was everywhere. “It’s themed,” says Baker, as she glances around the room. “Everything in here has some significance to Canada.” The members of the guild took turns sitting at the exhibit throughout the week. On this particular afternoon Ingrid Belt and Elaine Foskett are there with Baker. Foskett is one of the longtime members of the guild but her love of needle -work goes back much further than her 20 years in the guild. “I learned the basics in a girls’ club in Alberta when I was eight. I guess I had those iron-on transfers. You would put them on pieces of clothing and practice,” she says reminiscing about some of her first projects. Now she’s retired, she enjoys the relaxing hobby and social aspect of being part of the guild. Belt also got an early start.

Sicamous eyes up wellness centre Lachlan Labere Eagle Valley News

The District of Sicamous views the purchase of the Finlayson Street medical building as a sound investment for the community as well as a stepping stone towards future development of a wellness centre. Following up on the recent announcement of the district’s intentions to acquire the property at 217 Finlayson, town manager Evan Parliament provided more detailed background information during a report at the Oct. 11 council meeting. Parliament began by explaining the district has been working with the clinic to find a second doctor and/

or nurse practitioner, noting, “we do have a strong lead but we haven’t cemented that yet.” While recruiting, the district is also looking ahead long-term to the development of a new medical wellness centre on Main Street. Parliament said the purchase would allow the district to be more aggressive in its doctor recruitment campaign while providing more space in the future for community services. “The idea is we would transfer these existing leases into a new building (on Main Street) and that the old building would become community space,” he said. Funding for the acquisition will come from the district’s general capital reserves.

Film reveals dangers of porn The North Okanagan – Shuswap District Parents Advisory Council will host a free public screening of Over 18, a documentary about pornography produced by Canadian charity, Hope for the Sold at 6:30 p.m. Oct. 26 at A.L. Fortune Secondary School Theatre in Enderby. The documentary tackles an issue that many people would rather ignore – the effects of pornography

on children and youth. The film follows the true story of a boy who became addicted to pornography at the age of nine while playing on his computer in his family’s living room. It includes several interviews with experts from around the world as well as people who are still active in the porn industry today. Jared Brock, founder of Hope for the Sold and the film’s director said, “Ninety per cent

of boys under the age of 18 have looked at porn and 60 per cent of girls… The stuff that they’re accessing isn’t the Playboy that the previous generation saw – breasts in a magazine. It’s body-punishing sex.” The statistics are truly staggering. Nine of 10 boys view pornography, with the average age of exposure being just 12 years old. But it’s not just a male issue – 60 per cent of girls have

seen porn by age 18, and 57 per cent of girls and 83 per cent of boys have seen group sex online. RSVP by email to sd83dpac@gmail.com or by clicking the Event Brite link at www.dpac. sd83.bc.ca. To find out more, visit over18doc. com.

R.J. Haney Heritage Village and Museum will again be the scene of a screaming good Spooktacular on Oct. 21 and 22. As dusk falls on the village, strange shadows and ghostly figures appear as the 22nd annual event creeps out. Brave children and the not-so-faint-hearted can wander the not-soscary Storybook Path full of rhymes, fairytale stories and treats. Local storytellers will spook you senseless with less creepy stories for the for visitors young and old in Mount Ida Church, which has been supernaturally transformed for Tales from the Crypt. Wander the village and you will discover Cadaver Cemetery, where lost souls are prowling in the night. You have been warned, watch out for the Grim Reaper, skeletons, witches and other frightening ghouls. You never know what supernatural spirits will appear! Visit the Mystical Fortune Teller and she may answer all your secrets, predict your future or call the spirits to revel what your future holds. “If you are feeling a bit under the weather, an appointment with the Menacing Mad Scientist and a diagnosis in his electric chair is sure to make you scream,” says village manager Susan Mackie. If amusements are what you seek, test your skills at games of chance at the Hocus Pocus Midway. Take home a spine-tingling memory with a visit to Felts Photo Booth and have your picture taken for $5. Beware! If you venture too far and cross the bridge of Last Hope you will find yourself on Shady Lane. Chills, thrills and villains await you as you prowl the boardwalk of the Montebello Building. Shops have transformed into blood-curdling, bone-chilling shops of horror. “Mayhem awaits you;

“O Romeo, Romeo. Wherefore art thou Romeo? This is the passionate plea Juliet of the Capulet family makes to Romeo, a member of the rival Montague family, in William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. Meet them on the stage at Shuswap Theatre, where one of The Bard’s best-loved plays will run from Nov. 3 to 18, with guest director Liz Hobbs at the helm. It’s one of the greatest love stories ever told, says the ebullient Hobbs, noting the families have been feuding for many years, causing their teens to resort to desperate measures to be together. “Romeo, the only son of the Montagues, and Juliet, the only daughter of the Capulets, get married in secret, but Juliet’s cousin kills Juliet’s friend and Romeo avenges his death and is exiled,” says Hobbs. “This is where we go from a romantic comedy to a tragedy and everything goes wrong from there.” Juliet is supposed to be marrying someone else, but as she’s already married, a friar concocts a plan – Juliet will take a potion that will send her into a deep sleep, one that appears she is dead. “Romeo is supposed to come and wake her up and take her to Mantua where he’s been exiled. However, he doesn’t get the memo,” Hobbs says. “He thinks she’s really dead, poisons himself and dies next to her body right before she wakes up.” The devastated Juliet stabs herself, joining her beloved in death. “It’s really fun for the first 45 minutes,” laughs the enthusiastic director. “I actually really love this play; everyone’s acting out of love with good intentions, but they don’t work. One of the things interesting to me is that they’re acting out of good intentions but do it so blindly and quickly so it all goes sideways.” Hobbs describes the characters as super interesting and three-dimensional in a play without a villain. As well, the families end their feud when they realize the sorrow their hatred has sown. “This seems like a great fit, having awesome roles for both of those groups,” she says of the 20-member cast whose ages range from 12 to 70. “Shakespear-

Fans see Chase squad return to their winning ways. Oh, the ups and downs of junior hockey. A week ago, the Chase Heat players were leaving a bad taste and a challenge to the fans’ olfactory glands. This past pair of leisure days discovered new-found potential, an understanding of hard work and team play. It’s early, but a possible corner has been turned in the fortunes of 23 hockey careers. At home in the confines of the Art Holding Memorial Arena, the locals met up with the desperados from the Princeton Posse. It was Friday the 13th and suspicions aplenty filled the air. The hot Posse faced the less-than-hot Heat in front of those who hadn’t jumped off the Heat band wagon. Princeton popped in a power-play marker late in the first and an audible grunt from the crowd was heard. In the second, smooth-skating Pat

Brady scored with the man advantage, assisted by Josh Bourne and Ryan Okino. Then the Posse popped in a pair, prior to Chase doing the same. It was Zachary Fournier from Okino and Kolten Moore, followed by Moore from Brady and Fournier. The veterans had shown up for this one and it was notched at 3-3 after 40. In the third the visitors retook the lead and then with 34 seconds left in the period, Kaden Black on the man advantage from Brady and Okino got the faithful out of their seats. Off to overtime and the first overtime passed with it still 4-4. In the second extra stanza, Fournier was the hero from Moore, notching the game-winner in a fast and skill-filled evening of entertainment. The team the fans wanted to see had returned to its brand of thrillsand-chills shinny. So the next day found the team that headed off to Arm-

Was their luck about to change? After an hour-anda-half wait for a replacement coach, the trip to face the North Okanagan Knights continued. The hosts graciously delayed the game to an 8 p.m. start at NorVal Arena. The Knights crashed and bashed for the first half of this main event and the Heat played

rope-a-dope, not letting the mayhem affect their intended goal. In the first, rookie Brayden Haskell got his first in the KIJHL from Bourne and Cory Loring. In the second, the Knights pulled even. Finally in the third, Cam Watson the stay-at-home defenceman, blasted a slapper from the point, aided by Loring, to seal the deal on a 2-1 regulation-time win. The Heat current-

A big congratulations to John Mosimann from our Tuesday afternoon league who rolled his first EVER 300 game! 300 on the nose! Congrats John! You are now part of a very elite club! Joan Daye from our Wednesday afternoon league wasn’t messing around last week when she threw a 237 game! Helen Beauchamp showed the men how it was done on Thursday morning!

Chalet expansion taking shape Jim Elliot Salmon Arm Observer

As the trails at the Larch Hills cross-country ski area get their first dusting of snow, the expansion of the Larch Hills Chalet is taking shape. The two-storey expansion has been raised on the south side of the existing chalet and matches its log-frame construction. Once completed, the expansion will add another 2,400 square feet to the existing 1,200-square-foot chalet. More north-facing windows will be added to the existing chalet, giving greater visibility over the start and finish lines of the Reino Keski-Salmi Loppet and other perennial Larch

Hills Nordic Club events. “This is where the action happens,” said Jim Beckner, a member of the Chalet Expansion Committee, gesturing at the area where the main cross-country trails intersect. Beckner said that with the addition of a single large dormer to provide greater visibility from the second floor of the chalet, timing for the loppet and other races could be moved there. The original chalet was constructed in 1984 and then moved to its current site with basement washrooms added in 2006. Heat for the original chalet is provided by a wood stove and electric baseboard heaters. The new addition will be heated

by a wood-fired boiler across the parking lot which will also heat the caretaker’s house and track-setter shed. Beckner said the old chalet was pushed to the limits of its capacity as there are hundreds of skiers on the trails on the weekends or when there are events held at Larch Hills. The new addition will be filled with tables and chairs to act as a gathering place for skiers and other uses of the trails. Beckner says he hopes the new addition will open up new uses for the chalet and trails. He mentioned weddings, conventions and summer sports such as horseback riding and mountain biking as possible uses. “We’re hoping to see

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

LECLAIR, WILLIAM “BILL” RAYMOND March 7, 1953 - October 1, 2017 It is with sadness and pain that his family announces the unexpected death of Bill LeClair, FCA (William Raymond) in Sorrento, BC, on October 4, 2017. Bill was the beloved husband of his high school sweetheart Sharon (née Crawford); devoted father of Lindsey (Andrew Lindsay), Rebecca (Sean Scott) and Carleigh Ray (deceased); and adoring Papa of Brady, Shea, Keenen and Isla. Bill is also survived by his sisters Caroline Darts (Dan) and Susan LeClair and by numerous uncles, aunts, cousins, nephews and nieces from the Fenton, LeClair and Crawford clans and many friends. Born on March 7, 1953, to Carrie (née Fenton) and Ray LeClair, Bill graduated from Centennial High School and became a Chartered Accountant after completing his studies at UBC. Extraordinarily successful in business, he worked in various parts of Canada and in England, Africa and the Philippines. His philanthropic work, both privately and in relation to his business interests, was renowned. He was a long-time fundraiser for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and the Coquitlam Foundation. He also sat as an elected Councillor for the City of Coquitlam from 1983 to 2005. Throughout his life, Bill remained grounded in family and community. He was a musical entertainer, taking centre stage at family gatherings, a nature lover and a fishing enthusiast. He loved to laugh and to sing with family and friends, and his energy knew no bounds. Bill’s life dream was to live on the beach surrounded by his family, boating and fishing to his heart’s content. He and Sharon culminated that dream on the shores of the Shuswap Lake. Then, suddenly, he was gone. Friends and family are invited to celebrate Bill’s life at a memorial to be held at the Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel in Vancouver on October 29 at 1:00 P.M. Bill’s work and dedication to helping others will be continued through the Bill LeClair Community Fund.

In lieu of flowers, Bill’s family asks that you spend time with your loved ones, take a walk on the beach, and make a toast to friendships, lifelong and beyond.

MARION OBERLEITNER Born January 4, 1931 in Marlington, Quebec We are saddened to announce the passing of Marion, our wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. Mom passed away in her home peacefully next to our Dad Tony on October 5th. Mom was well known in her community as the vibrant companionate lady who took time for everyone. She changed so many lives with her beautiful loving spirit. She gave her all to those who were not easily accepted by society. She treated everyone with dignity, compassion and kindness , making them feel loved and wanted. Marion had a love for all things in nature. She was an example to her children and grandchildren on how to live off the land. Mom along with Dad farmed, hunted, fished, gardened, harvested and processed our food. They were pioneers together. She was infamous for her wine making that was enjoyed at many family events. Mom had an artistic flare for hosting our elaborate family events that gave us all such great memories. Her legacy lives on in all of us. Mom was a gifted quilter back when the sewing was done by hand and patterns were drawn with stencils. Many hours were spent at this labor of love. We feel blessed to have these beautiful treasured quilts that wrap us in her love. Marion is remembered by her husband Tony Oberleitner, daughter Edie (Simon) Darche and family, Son Eddy (Carmen) and family, daughter Holly (Cliff) Aschenbrenner and family, grandchildren Jesse (Allyson), Cody (Mercedes), Amy (Jason), Bayley (Dustin), Curtis (Trish), Kristi (Bryden), Dustin, Dylan, Matthew, Karli, Kailee, great grandchildren David, Darrell, Eve, Delilah, Scarlet, Archer, Edward, Gabriella, daughter-inlaw Lynn (Dan) and Sister Edith. Marion was pre-deceased by her Son Darrell Yetter, parents Ivan and Mabel Wood and several brothers and sisters. Mom’s life mission was taking care of the less fortunate therefore in lieu of flowers please make a donation in her name to a charity of your choice to pass on the gift of love. There will be a small family gathering to celebrate Mom’s amazing life. God Bless our Rock Star with bling. A special thank you to Teddy and Nicole for their love and support, and to Officer Ray, Aren and ambulance attendants who were very compassionate in a difficult time.

When I’m Gone

When I come to the end of my journey And I travel my last weary mile, Just forget if you can, that I ever frowned And remember only the smile. Forget unkind words I have spoken; Remember some good I have done, Forget that I ever had a heartache And remember I’ve had loads of fun. Forget that I’ve stumbled and blundered And sometimes fell by the way.

Your Health &

Wellness

INFORMATION DESIGNED TO PROMOTE AND ENHANCE YOUR WELLBEING

Health Properties of Bananas FAMILY CHIROPRACTIC Dr. Warren Gage There is a fruit many of us consume regularly that is extremely under-rated for it’s health benefits and it is the banana. This week I would like to share some of the research that has been published on this simple, delicious, and easily tolerated fruit. Green bananas help with diarrhea. This research comes out of India where many natural solutions to common problems arise due to simple eco-

nomics. If a baby has diarrhea, many Indian families do not have access to medical help so they must use natural remedies. When one consumes under-ripe bananas there are starches present that are resistant to digestion. When anything is not well digested it simply passes through the digestive tract to be eliminated. While it is passing through the bowel, especially if there is some pectin present as well, the ba-

nana reduces the permeability of the bowel wall, which results in reducing diarrhea. Bananas also have an anti-ulcer effect in the stomach. Banana powder has been studied for it’s ability to protect the lining of the stomach and prevent ulcer formation. Ulcers may be induced by pharmasueticals such as aspirin and can be very uncomfortable. It is even now known that substances in bananas promote cell growth in ulcer healing. Banana peel has been found to reduce prostate enlargement. Banana consumption also helps to protect

the skin from UV damage from the sun and it has been found to help maintain the elasticity of the skin. As with all foods that have healing properties, be sure to only consume organic. Mass-produced bananas are often heavily sprayed with chemicals and when crops are not adequately managed and rotated in an or-

ganic fashion, the soil becomes depleted. The depletion of the soil results in a loss of essential minerals and healthy properties that are transferred into the fruit during it’s growth process. Dr. Warren Gage is a family wellness Chiropractor who can be reached at Harbourfront Family Chiropractic at (250) 803-0224.

Keeping Canadian food affordable (NC) Feeding your family healthy food year-round can be a challenge. On top of being crunched for time, facing allergies and dietary limitations, and dealing with picky eaters, you also need to worry about the affordability of healthy eating. Food costs fluctuate as a result of weather, global trade issues and exchange rate variability — all factors beyond the control of farmers and food pro-

ducers. What farmers can impact, though, is what happens on their farms across the country. And that’s the use of modern plant science technologies that help produce more food more cost effectively. Huge gains in productivity at the farm level have brought the cost of food in Canada down over the last 50 years compared to overall consumer income, according to Farm Credit Cana-

da’s chief agricultural economist. “Canadians spend about 10 cents of every dollar on average on food purchases,” says J.P. Gervais. “In a developing country like China, consumers can spend up to 40 per cent of every dollar on food.” Those productivity gains can be attributed in part to plant science technologies like pesticides and biotechnology, says registered dietitian Carol Harri-

son. Estimates show that Canadian families would pay about 55 per cent more per year on groceries if those tools were not available to farmers. “It’s been estimated our food costs could go up by $4,400 dollars a year and that would make it tough for a lot of families to make ends meet,” says Harrison. “It’s important that we have a safe, nutritious and affordable food supply so we can enjoy variety, which is

really the cornerstone of a healthy diet. We have to keep those food costs down and plant science technologies help us do that.” Research has shown that without plant science innovations, we would annually be paying approximately 31 per cent more for bread, 47 per cent for fresh fruit, 52 per cent for fresh vegetables and up to 76 per cent more for condiments, spices and vinegars. www.newscanada.com

an homage to our four-legged pals ShuSwap OutdOOrS Hank Shelley The phone call was to be expected, in a way. As the tears flowed, Kathy said that little Boo had passed. At deer camp last week we could see she wasn’t as perky as usual. The small Australian Sheltie had been checked out by a vet a week earlier and things didn’t look good. She was always the camp dog, ever jumpin’ logs, truckin’ down the old Native Kluskus trail near Fishpot Lake when moose hunting. Quiet as a mouse while riding in the vehicle, expecting the unexpected grouse or deer. At home, paws on the dash going through the drive through for a Timbit. As lovers of animals, we must expect an end, but they know when you’re sad. They also know your very moods. And yes, they bring us joy. I’m referring to the dogs we own and have in our lives. All part of the family. A hunting-fishing friend lost Colby, his black Lab, last fall, just after our last grouse and deer hunt, as well. In the last issue of Outdoor Life Magazine, much was written about hunting dogs . A photo showed the editor, packing his large female Labrador over a fence, placing her gently on the ground. The next

photo showed the dog merrily trotting off to the chap shooting at a raising cock pheasant. Although arthritic she still loved to hunt – with a bit of help mind you! I recall having to help my golden Lab, Goldie, into the truck in her last few months, as walking streams in the Fall had become too hard on her – plus all the cold water retrieves on geese and ducks she had made. At the ranch, we hunt on over at Brisco (South of Golden). The crew rely on Border Collies for a good part of ranch work, and it’s not unusual to see two riding in hay in a pick-up, heading out to round up cattle. Yes, there’s something about the dogs, and yes, cats too, in our lives that enrich who we are. They ask little of us, are always there time of need and bring pleasure to those who own them. Hunting report: Few deer are being brought into the lockers locally. It is still early in the season for bucks. A few whitetail does have been harvested of late. Bears have been a problem in the Eagle Bay area, getting into garbage/freezers. Predators: Wolf scat can be seen along the 110-1-11 roads indicating there is a pack hunting in the area.

There is also a pack of eight taking down game. With hunters reporting few moose or

deer being seen. While dropping off a load of wood to a friend up Pierre’s Point road

last week, he had two wolves chasing down a deer close to his backyard. Overall, hunters

In any case, straight shootin’ and good luck to all sportsmen and ladies out there!

are going to work a bit harder to fill the freezer this hunting season, or go farther afield.
