RCMP tight-lipped about search More tents and equipment brought in as Silver Creek effort expands. By Carmen Weld and Lachlan Labere Black Press

RCMP are releasing very little new information regarding the search of the Silver Creek property. Cpl. Dan Moskaluk spoke to reporters by the property on Wednesday afternoon but gave little indication of how long police would remain on scene, saying there was no timeline for the investigation. Human remains were found on the property over the weekend; however Moskaluk wouldn’t say

if they belonged to one or more persons or in what form the remains were found. Court records have been sealed for this property search. When asked if police were investigating a Maple Ridge connection to the case, Moskaluk would not comment, nor would he state why police were searching other nearby areas. Police have not directly claimed this property search is connected to Curtis Sagmoen, whose

Landfill property purchase delayed Barb Brouwer Salmon Arm Observer

Columbia Shuswap Regional District directors have agreed to extend the timeline on the contentious purchase of a property to expand the Salmon Arm Landfill. At an in-camera session on Oct. 19, Columbia Shuswap Regional District directors approved an amendment to the purchase of a 20acre property owned by Mounce Construction Ltd. from the original closing date of Jan. 31, 2018 to June. 30 2018. At an earlier in-camera meeting on July 20, the board had approved a staff recommendation to enter into an agreement with Wayne Mounce to purchase the parcel of land located at 2750-40 Street SE, subject to the successful rezoning of the property in compliance with the City of Salmon Arm’s official community plan. The purchase was revealed in a story in the Salmon Arm Observer

after the details were released following the in-camera meeting, sparking complaints from nearby residents. “CSRD staff is requesting the board approve an amendment to the existing purchase agreement with Mounce Construction Ltd. to extend the timeline in order to satisfy newly understood agency approvals and the associated public consultation processes,” wrote Environmental Health team leader Ben Van Nostrand in his report considered by the board at the Oct. 19 meeting. Although both the Salmon Arm Landfill property and the Mounce property are provincially approved landfill sites, neither properties are in compliance with the city’s zoning bylaw. To enable the CSRD to use the Mounce property for future landfilling purposes, the property needs to be rezoned and the OCP amended accordingly. “A key element of

an OCP amendment is broad community consultation, which will also ensure relevant agency requirements have been met,” wrote Van Nostrand. “CSRD and city staff have consulted with staff at the provincial Ministry of Environment (MOE), who have indicated that an amendment to the CSRD’s Solid Waste Management Plan (SWMP) is also required as landfill property acquisition was not contemplated in the current plan, which was reviewed and adopted in 2014.” The ministry has indicated the CSRD should develop a proposal identifying the process it will undertake to amend its plan and the process for submission, review and approval of the updated plan. A specialized landfill engineer and consultant have been hired to develop the proposal. The SWMP amendment process will focus on the elements necessary to satisfy sufficient

Salmon Arm Observer/Shuswap Market News

support local by eating local The bounty of the Shuswap and Okanagan area is well known by those who live here and those who visit. Fresh vegetables and fruit grow well in the rich Salmon River Valley and other areas. Yet access to this bounty is not always as accessible as it should be to those who live here. This has not gone unnoticed by residents, who have suggested having institutional food provided locally, as well as being available in all grocery stores. The new Agriculture Minister, Lana Popham, is proposing what sound like logical, rational changes to the Agricultural Land Reserve. Rather than just protecting farm land, she would like to see supports for farming itself. “So what we have to do is make sure that land stays protected, but put in policies that add possibilities for income,” she said in a recent interview with Black Press. “My whole mandate is based on economic development for agriculture.” Part of her plan, she says, is called Grow BC. She gives the example of a fruit filling processor in Abbotsford who could create applesauce for the hospital system and would be willing to make certain a percentage is from B.C. apples. Along with that is Feed BC, which would encourage institutions such as hospitals and long-term care facilities – anywhere where the province is spending money on procuring food, to increase the amount of food that is not only grown in B.C. but processed in B.C. This makes complete sense. Provide consumers with healthy local food at the same time as providing local farmers a dependable income, without ruining our planet with the pollution and resource consumption that comes with transporting long distances. —Black Press

Prepared for photographing nature the great outdoors James Murray Have you ever looked out at some absolutely breathtakingly beautiful landscape or witnessed some truly awe-inspiring natural phenomena and thought to yourself – if I only had a camera? I have and, for someone who made their living for 44 years taking photographs, I can assure you being in such a situation is annoying to say the least. That’s why I recently bought one of those little super-zoom point-andshoot type of cameras (a Nikon L830) which I now keep in my vehicle at all times. I use to lug a DSLR and a whole whack of lenses and accessories. Not any more. Last week I headed out to the Roderick Haig-Brown Provincial Park hoping to photograph the salmon that were supposed to be returning to spawn in the Adams River. I had packed the little camera, some extra batteries and cards, binoculars, a few

‘essential’ accessories and my lunch into my camera bag, and then strapped a four-section carbon-fibre Manfrotto tripod to the bottom of the pack. I was prepared. The salmon, however, were noticeably absent – not that the surroundings weren’t worth photographing. Normally this time of year, there are any number of excellent spots along the trails at Roderick Haig-Brown Park where you can get some pretty nice photos of spawning sockeye salmon. The L830, like many similar point-and-shoot type cameras, has a built-in macro feature which, as it happened, came in mighty handy as I saw some neat looking fungi growing on fallen trees. While on the subject of fungi and macro photography, I never use to think that there was a place for artificial light in nature photography, but I have come to change my mind over the years.

Flash diffusion accessories such as the LumiQuest Mini Softbox allow you to soften the harsh unnatural feel of electronic flash. Flash also allows you to fill in shadow and even out the lighting ratio between the shadow and brightly illuminated highlights. I also carry a couple of feet of aluminum foil in my pack. I can unfold it and use it to bounce sunlight back onto my subject when doing close-up nature photography. Another accessory that I always take along in my camera bag is a polarizing filter. These filter out part of the light being reflected at certain angles that cause reflective surfaces to be visually washed out due to excessive glare. Polarizing filters are essentially two linear filters that rotate on axis to each other, and when the two filters are at the correct angle to each other, they effectively reduce the amount of glare. It should be easy to see how a polarizing filter would be of great value when taking pictures of fish underwater. It should be noted that what you put your gear into can be almost as important

as the gear itself. There are a number of good quality packs out there that will help you organize, protect and carry your gear comfortably. I use a Lowepro Slingshot 100 that also serves as a well-made daypack. It’s indispensable. As in years past, last week I saw a number of people out at Haig-Brown Park with some pretty impressive camera gear. I assume that most of them had travelled a great distance to capture images of spawning sockeye salmon. Who knows if they were disappointed. Next year will certainly tell a lot as it will be the largest return in the sockeye’s four-year cycle. If the salmon don’t come back in greater numbers, I wouldn’t imagine that too many avid photographers will continue to be come back neither. I only hope that come next year I will be standing shoulder to shoulder with all sorts of photographers on the banks of the Adams – them with their big telephoto lenses and me with my little point and shoot – photographing spawning sockeye salmon in numbers greater than expected.

Count Dracula and the WHO GLOBAL VIEWS Gwynne Dyer It was a bit like appointing Count Dracula as the goodwill ambassador for the blood donor service. Truth is stranger than fiction, because fiction has to be plausible. Reality is under no such constraint, and regularly produces events that would never be credible in a novel. Like the decision last Thursday to appoint Zimbabwe’s Robert Mugabe as the World Health Organisation’s goodwill ambassador. The newly elected head of the WHO, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, said he hoped that the Zimbabwean president would “influence his peers in the region” to devote more effort to health care, but Mugabe doesn’t really have much by way of peers. Mugabe, in power since 1980, is effectively president-for-life, whereas all the neighbouring countries except Angola are more or less functional democracies. All of them, again except Angola, provide better healthcare to their citizens than Zimbabwe. Not good, but significantly better. In Zimbabwe, heathcare improved significantly in the first twenty years of Mugabe’s rule, as did the econo-

my in general. He built clinics, hospitals and schools, and Zimbabweans became one of the healthiest, best educated, and most prosperous populations in Africa. But then it all went wrong. After a referendum in 2000 rejected a new constitution designed to strengthen Mugabe’s grip on power, he became increasingly paranoid and authoritarian. The sole purpose of government became hanging on to power at any cost (to others), so favoured cronies in the ruling party and the military were allowed to loot the economy – which duly collapsed.. By now, in fact, there is hardly any Zimbabwean economy left beyond subsistence agriculture. Unemployment has soared to 75 percent or higher, and the schools and hospitals have fallen apart. Adult life expectancy has plunged from 61 years to 45, and staterun hospitals and clinics frequently run out of even basic medicines like painkillers and antibiotics. Mugabe has presided over this catastrophe for seventeen years now, insisting all the while that all is well. At the World Economic Forum on Africa in Durban last May, he

claimed that “Zimbabwe is one of the most highly developed countries in Africa.” He is planning to run for re-election as president next year at the age of 94, and nobody dares to defy him. He will win, of course, after the usual number of opposition activists has been beaten up, jailed or murdered – if he lasts that long, but he is beginning to show serious signs of wear. In fact, Mugabe has made three “medical visits” to Singapore for treatment this year. Why Singapore? The presidential spokesperson, George Charamba, says that it’s a problem with Mugabe’s eyes, which would helpfully explain away the fact that he frequently appears to fall asleep at public meetings. (He’s just resting his eyes, really.) He needs a foreign specialist for that, but for everything else, Charamba claims, Mugabe goes to a Zimbabwean doctor – who is, he assures everybody, a “very, very, very black physician”. There are very good Zimbabwean doctors, of course, but most of them, frustrated at the lack of medical supplies, have long since left the country for greener pastures. And it does seem unlikely that it’s an eye problem that has caused Mugabe to make three “medical visits” to Singapore this year. It’s

probably something more serious, and Mugabe just doesn’t trust his own health service to deal with it. How did the new head of WHO hit upon the idea of making this man, of all people, the organisation’s “goodwill ambassador” for Africa? He and his advisers must have discussed it in various meetings for weeks before announcing it. Did nobody ever bother to point out that it would be a public relations disaster? “Special ambassadors” don’t have to do very much, but their choice does shine a light on the judgement and integrity of those who choose them. In the event, the public outcry about the choice of Mugabe was so instant and widespread that within three days his appointment was cancelled. Mugabe had been the head of the

African union when the organsation endorsed Tedros as the sole African candidate for the WHO job, and no doubt Tedros felt some obligation to return the favour, but the organisation’s financial support comes from elsewhere. So it’s just politics as usual. The WHO’s reputation will eventually recover, but healthcare in Zimbabwe won’t as long as Mugabe is alive. And the world will continue to rotate in an easterly direction. -Gwynne Dyer is an independent journalist whose articles are published in 45 countries.

Sorrento artist goes postal Barb Brouwer Salmon Arm Observer

Goodbye generic, hello Copper Island. The cancellation stamp for the Canada Post Office in Sorrento now features an drawing of Copper Island, thanks to the work of artist Sherry Damm. Damm says Sorrento postmaster Charleen Gillberg asked her if she would take part in developing an appropriate stamp for Sorrento, rather than the generic one that was in use. “She decided that every other town has a stamp that identifies its town,” says Damm. “Peggy’s Cove has the lighthouse, Sicamous has a houseboat and

Gillberg sent the drawing to Canada Post where minor changes were requested and, with adjustments made, the artwork was accepted and put into production. “I am honoured and thrilled to be part of it,” says Damm, noting there are many other talented artists in the area. “And there’s no end date; it won’t ever get changed unless another postmaster comes along, at which point they may or may

Notch Hill honours its veterans Louise Barber Market News contributor

Notch Hill Cemetery is located at 2350 Hilltop Road in Sorrento-Notch Hill. The cemetery has a unique and interesting history. The land for the cemetery was part of pioneer homesteader, John McIntyre’s quarter section. In the 1890’s, McIntyre donated approximately an acre-and-a-half for use as a cemetery. The earliest recorded burial is 1899. The cemetery is still currently in use for burials and cremations and has undergone extensive restoration in the last eight years. Among the approximately 200 burials and cremations, there are 18 veterans. These individuals included four survivors of the First World War, 12 from

the Second World War and two in post wartime service. They served Canada overseas and on the home front in all branches of the military – Army, Navy, Air Force and Merchant Navy. One serviceman served in both world wars. After their discharge from service these veterans settled in various communities across Canada and lived out their lives in many varied occupations. Some of these included railroad engineers, postmasters, truck drivers, farmers, store merchants, tradesmen, loggers and businessmen. They led fulfilling lives in post-war years and after contributing to their communities and raising families, they passed away and are buried in Notch Hill Cemetery. On Nov. 11, each Vet-

Shaw Centre’s state-of-the-art technology ensures safety. Following the recent fatalities at the arena in Fernie, Salmon Arm council was eager to reassure residents about ammonia use at the Shaw Centre. General manager of the Shuswap Recreation Society Dale Berger appeared before council Monday afternoon to provide detailed procedures on how the ammonia is used to cool the ice at the Shaw Centre. Pointing out ammonia refrigeration systems are heavily regulated due to the highly dangerous qualities of the material, Berger noted the Shaw Centre has a state-of-theart refrigeration plant in terms of the safety equipment and procedures for its use. Safety measures include: • A designated chief engineer is legally responsible for the safe operation and maintenance of the plant; • All employees associated with the operation of the plant are fully certified; • A dedicated refrigeration mechanical contractor is connected to all alarms.

The system is designed to detect the presence of ammonia and is equipped with an automatic ventilation system. As well, manual emergency shut down and ventilation buttons are located outside of the room, along with alarms that can be seen and heard. “The plant has been audited by Technical Safety BC within the last two years and it is currently in full compliance with any and all recommendations implemented as a result of that audit,” Berger said. “Our participation in the city’s Joint Health and Safety Committee is a further commitment to the overall safety of our employees and the general public.” Further, Berger said all safety devices are tagged electronically, providing information on date of last service and next due date and all critical components have required replacement schedules. “Certain aspects of the plant are monitored every four hours and a digital system tracks all of the maintenance,” he said. “There are many parts of refrigeration that have a shelf life and at five years, they

Kevin Flynn said that while council is aware of the safety measures, it’s important to reassure residents. “It’s not just a stateof-the art system, but a safety system as well,” he said. “When something tragic happens, they need to know staff are doing their best for residents without putting themselves in danger.” Coun. Ken Jamieson asked if other chemicals are available or if there are plans to move to other refrigeration chemicals, but was assured by Berger ammonia is the most efficient

and low-cost method for large refrigeration plants. Berger said that moving to another sys-

tem would be costly and a lot of money is being spent to make sure the current system is safe.

Project highlights military service Erin Christie Black Press

“There were, and are, a lot veterans from Enderby, but we also still have people in the armed services continuing to serve all over the world—right now. It’s not over—it’s never over, and there are still people fighting for us.” November 11 is the day most people set aside to remember the fallen members of the armed forces, but for some, like Enderby and District Museum and Archives director Margo Ludwig, Remembrance Day isn’t just a one-day affair. She hopes a Remembrance Day project she is organizing will help keep Enderby families feel as connected to their lost loved ones, as she feels to hers. Ludwig is asking residents to create shadowboxes that highlight their loved ones’ military service, for a display that will be available to view at the legion following the town’s Remembrance day service at Cenotaph on November 11. A museum employee or

volunteer would take a photo of the display for its archives before returning it. “This isn’t just a oneday thing where you go and remember,” Ludwig said. “There were, and are, a lot veterans from Enderby, but we also still have people in the armed services continuing to serve all over the world—right now. It’s not over—it’s never over, and there are still people fighting for us.” Although she says you would be “hardpressed” to find a family not touched by the effects of major military conflict at some point in history, Ludwig, a former special education assistant with the North Okanagan-Shuswap School District (#83 ) said Remembrance Day became even more personal for her after seeing one of her students enlist in the armed forces. That is,she noted, in part, what inspired her to create the project, which is being run through the museum in partnership with the Enderby Legion Branch #98.

“I’m trying to make it more personal,” she said, adding that her shadowbox, which she describes as “a picture frame, but deeper,” contains items that depict her father’s length, place and type of military service and his accomplishments. She is encouraging people to showcase any relative from Enderby that served in any of the World Wars or any other military campaign. The display boxes should be no more than 18 inches square. Those interested in creating a display are asked to fill out a form beforehand to give Ludwig “an idea of how many displays to expect” on Remembrance Day. Forms can be picked up at the Enderby and District Museum, the Legion or online at For those who are unsure of how to create a shadowbox, Ludwig says she will be conducting a workshop at the museum on November 7 at 7 p.m. There is no charge to take part, but those who partici-

Hosts Special Visitor! Mrs. Deborah Sallenback accompanied by Mrs. Barbara Gee, BC Elks Association Regional representative and 3rd Vice President paid a visit to the Salmon Arm Elks Lodge #455. After 105 years in existence the Elks of Canada installed the first woman as their Grand Exaulted Ruler/National President Deborah Sallenback, a member of the Langley Elks Lodge #259. As with any other organizations membership is down but Lodges are working to turn this around. They are working on ways to attract younger members and couples into the order and the Lodges are starting to be revitalized. The Elks and Royal Purple Fund for Children continues to make a significant impact on the lives of children in need across the country, thanks to the generosity of our members and great work being done to support the fund by our local Lodges and Provincial Associations. Their generosity has helped 2,445 children since the year 2000 through nearly $3.4 million in funding through personal assistance cases and invested over $9 million in provincial programs that support children with hearing and speech disabilities since 1976. Funding of personal assistance cases allows us to more directly impact the lives of children across Canada and helps build a greater awareness of the Elks and the Elks and Royal Purple Fund for Children. GER Deborah Sallenback complimented the Salmon Arm Elks for donating $300,000.00 to the Fund and worked 30,000 hours in promoting the Fund. President Salmon Arm Elks #455 Jack Bibby presented a cheque of $25,000 to GER Deborah Sallenback for the Elks and Royal Purple Fund for Children. Another Charity of BC is the BC Family Hearing Resource Society which Mrs. Barbara Gee spoke about. We can be proud of our forefathers for having the vision of the Elks starting this program 35 years ago. Today the program has grown into number one in the world. This happened when they wrote the book “My Turn to Learn” which is being translated in 17 languages. Mrs. Barbara Gee also spoke on the stats of usage of the Elks Children Camp in Canoe which only had 254 campers from 9 groups while Deman Island Camp had 600 campers and Aldergrove Camp had 1000 campers. The Salmon Arm Elks have donated $82,797.75 toward the 3 Camps. If Elk Canoe is not used more by the people and children in the area the Salmon Arm Elks are afraid that the camp will have to be shut down.

Aries, don’t get caught up in too much gossip, as it can only negatively impact your relationships. Take the higher ground whenever possible and you will stay above the fray.


It is impossible to change the past unless you have a time machine, Taurus. Instead of dwelling on what should’ve been, make new things happen for the better.


Gemini, take a fresh approach to a problem that has been puzzling you. A new perspective might be just the thing you need to crack this nut and move forward.


Cancer, just when you thought things would quiet down for the time being, change is coming. This may catch you by surprise — but change can sometimes be good.

Salmon Arm Observer/Shuswap Market News Ken Smedley presents THE

Sebell’s finding the key to life Barb Brouwer Salmon Arm Observer

Music is his life and life is good right now. As of Sunday, Sebell’s new single FOMY (For Fear of Missing You) was number 10 on where Kiara holds the top spot and Maroon 5 is in the fifth slot. Being in the company of such chart-toppers is exciting for the talented singer/songwriter who has been working in Los Angeles, Toronto, Vancouver and Nashville over the past several years. “I love my life, but an artist on the road is always a transient with no roots,” he says. “I think you always want what you don’t have.” Between 2014 and 2016, Sebell had settled into “a more normal life” in Toronto that included great friends and a girlfriend. “As soon as things got normal, doors started opening like crazy in L.A. and, as much as I love my life in TO, I knew I had to walk through the doors in L.A. to see what was there,” he says. “Your heart is always in a game of tug of war; you want to be on one

coast but opportunity is on the other. No matter where I am, I am feeling the fear of missing people.” These feelings are expressed in FOMY, which he likens to FOMO (fear of missing out), a commonly used acronym in his age group and the song that is his most autobiographical. Sebell says being a professional songwriter is fun but hard work. “Being a professional songwriter is like being a professional speed dater,” he laughs, noting the best songs are based on real-life stories and are the hardest to write. “You’re meeting new people every day and you have very little time to get to know someone.” As he strives to work out a better life balance, Sebell says he’s thinking of making L.A. home because it is one of the best places for doing what he wants to do in terms of career development. “I love LA, it’s amazing how influential the city is and how it affects culture,” he enthuses. “Writing with and for other artists and being brought into their sto-

ries and being trusted is amazing.” He has written with Universal/Hollywood Records artist Shawn Hook and Island Records artist, Banners. He co-wrote the lead single Coachella for Universal’s latest signing, New City and wrote Bitter/Sweet, a song Keshia Chanté will introduce in the new year. His song Darkside, which he wrote in Nashville last year, aired on MTV’s Teen Wolf. It is available on Spotify, iTunes, Apple Music and YouTube. He also co-wrote Paul Brandt’s single, I’m An Open Road, which was a top-10 hit in Canada and recently went gold. The artist sees himself splitting the year between L.A. and Toronto, a city with a thriving music industry. “There’s a lot of exciting stuff in the works; I’m just waiting and looking forward to the future.” That includes a tour in the new year and an EP release. It is a follow-up to the last self-titled album featuring Till the Sun Burns Out, which hit number 15 across the country and Promised Land,

On Oct. 22, Sebell’s new single, FOMY, had climbed to the number 10 spot on a popular global playlist sharing site.

which did over two million streams on Spotify around the world. “The last couple of years has taught me, as much as I love the dream of music, I don’t want to be hitting 50 and saying I lived the dream; it’s cool, but not if the connection with people or being with family and friends is not part of that,” he says. “If you don’t have those meaningful relationships, you’re setting yourself up for living half a life. In living a full life of intention with the people you love, you discover the pain and beauty of being alive.”

Sweet Legs rep Taylor Hammer shows off the latest in the product line at the Shuswap Women in Business Trade Show held Oct. 19 at the Prestige Harbourfront Resort, which featured a variety of local businesses.

Film searches for truth Emily GarrEtt Cinemaphile Based on David Grann’s non-fiction bestseller, The Lost City of Z recounts the true story behind the mysterious tale of British adventurer Percy Fawcett. In 1906, at the behest of the Royal Geographical Society, Percy (Charlie Hunnam) travels to South America to map the jungles on the border of Brazil and Bolivia with his military partner Henry

(Robert Pattinson). Once there, they discover evidence of an unknown advanced civilization that awakens a passion in Percy to further explore the region and hopefully discover what he comes to call The Lost City of Z, the ultimate piece to solving the human puzzle. But upon his return, he is met with ridicule from his scientific colleagues who believe the indigenous

population to be nothing but disease-ridden savages. With the support of his wife Nina (Sienna Miller), Percy returns to the unforgiving Amazonian jungle over and over, desperate to prove his beliefs and finally escape the disgraced reputation of his father. Eventually, Percy’s own son, Jack (Tom Holland), accompanies him in his search on the ultimate expedition in 1925. The Lost City of Z shows at 5 and 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 28 at the Salmar Classic Theatre.

Trying to send the right messages about food HealTHy biTes Serena Caner In my ten years as a dietitian, I have seen thousands of people, but it is the young people with eating disorders that stick in my mind. Having two daughters myself, body image is an extremely sensitive topic for me. Any mention of the word “fat” and my mother-sensors go off, worrying that it will be a precursor to an eating disorder. So this is the lens I am going to answer a common question on many parent’s minds: How do I help my emerging T:1.31” teen develop healthy habits without harming her

self-esteem, triggering an eating disorder or passing on my own body image baggage? While advice for every child would be different, these are some good ideas: Explain the facts: Weight gain and increasing body fat are a normal and healthy part of puberty. These stores will support growth spurts, menstrual cycles and reproductive health. Think about how chunky your child was as a baby, and how they grew into normal toddlers and children. If you have concerns, speak with your family physician.

Love them just the way they are: as parents, we have a natural tendency to criticize our children. Although this comes from a place of love and concern, it is unhelpful. Instead, we can focus on communicating that we adore them. Catch them doing things right and acknowledge it. Hug them. Give them a shoulder rub. This helps build self esteem which empowers healthy lifestyle choices. Use positive language when describing bodies: adjectives like “strong”, “energetic” and “healthy” are better than “fat” or “thin”. Be a good role model by not judging other people’s bodies, including your own. Decrease stress and increase sleep: stress

Aries, don’t get caught up in too much gossip, as it can only negatively impact your relationships. Take the higher ground whenever possible and you will stay above the fray.


It is impossible to change the past unless you have a time machine, Taurus. Instead of dwelling on what should’ve been, make new things happen for the better.


Gemini, take a fresh approach to a problem that has been puzzling you. A new perspective might be just the thing you need to crack this nut and move forward.


Cancer, just when you thought things would quiet down for the time being, change is coming. This may catch you by surprise — but change can sometimes be good.

Salmon Arm Observer/Shuswap Market News


The story of an old bull elk ShuSwap ouTdoorS Hank Shelley Ol’ Don Landry was a onery ol’ cuss. Lived by himself, on a small ranch over in the East Kootenays. Had a few head of horses, mostly Morgan cross. A few cows, and a Collie dog named Useless. A old Chev pick-up truck with farm vehicle scrawled on the door and a broken jack and a bale of hay in the back. Now it seems, Don was having a issue with the Fish and Wildlife branch over some of his land the branch wanted for elk winter habitat. He figured they where too chinchy on the price. Anyhow, come spring, and while out fencing, he got to where there was an old log shed. Hearing a noise inside, he swung the sagging door aside and there was a small bull elk calf. It couldn’t find its way out, as the door had swung shut. Suddenly Don got this idea on how he’d show the branch he meant business. Rushing back to the home place, he got a branding iron, propane torch and large plastic, yellow ear tag. Returning, he had just branded the little guy, and punched a ear tag on when he was met with a small herd of angry elk cows.

Letters Welcome

Fred explained, that, because the owner wouldn’t let them hunt on his land he shot the guy’s horse! The boys had a camp down the road a piece, so Don thought he’d have some fun. He had a large shoulder mount of a 6-point bull elk, and a large elk hide in the barn. While they were away, he mounted the head and hide, on a 2x4 frame and set it in the bush with the head showing, early next morning, on this old logging road, uphill from their camp. There was a mad scramble for guns, then shooting. Realizing they had been duped, they returned to the ranch, where all had a good laugh over the whole issue. All three had been with the Patricia’s, so all toasted a drink to good health, hunting and friendship.

Useless kept them at bay, then Don made it to the truck, just as the old matriarch hit the door with her hoof. The cows called the calf out of the shed and during spring counts in a fly over of elk, the biologist noticed the ear-tagged bull calf. This didn’t help matters, but life carried on, and Don continued to raise hay and calves (He’d let the fence down and the cows would be serviced by the neighbors bull, then he’d bring them home again). The young bull grew to be a very large 6x7point bull. Come hunting season, many hunters would stop in front of Don’s place, glassing the bull with his small

herd of cows, then come into the yard and ask if they could hunt. Don refused everyone, as the elk was his pride and joy. One early morning, there was a knock on the door, and there stood his old army buddy, who was with him in the Princess Patricia’s 1st Battalion. Fred had a couple buddies with him, who were avid hunters, but sat in the truck. Fred asked if they could hunt the bull, Don had to say no. The bull was his pride and joy. Then Don said to Fred, “Fred, I’ve got a 27-year-old mare on her last legs, and not doing well, could you put her down?” Fred being a horselover then went to the truck, brought his rifle back behind the barn, and fired a shot. On returning to the truck, his two buddies said ‘what the h..ll was going on!’

Tradition carved into canoes Barb Brouwer Salmon Arm Observer

A once-noble cottonwood tree continues life in the form of two canoes. For the past 60 years, no member of the Little Shuswap Lake Indian Band has cut down a tree for the purpose of making a canoe. That changed on a cold January day when 50 to 60 people showed up at a tree ceremony where a tall and broad cottonwood on reserve land in Scotch Creek was chosen. “It was cold; a few elders smudged and prayed for the tree and Ernie Phillip sang,” says Tanner Quanstrom, First Nations representative at the Cultural Centre at Quaaout Lodge. “Then someone put prayer into the tobacco and prayed for the tree, saying we need your help in making canoe. After the prayer, he dropped the tobacco by the base of the tree.” Quanstrom says natives do the same thing for gathering berries or medicines, praying to Kalkukpe7, the Great Creator. “He placed everything we see here, but the person who created the circle of life and gave order was Sklep, also known as Coyote,” he says. The tree was left in place for about 10

days then shipped to Quaaout Lodge by a logging truck on Feb. 6. Led by carver Frank Marchand of the Okanagan Nation, work began on the cottonwood, a tree commonly used by the Secwepemc people because it is lighter and there are fewer knots to contend with. The canoes were built in two different styles. The first one is 35 feet in length and is a contemporary canoe Marchand carved with a chainsaw. The second canoe is 15 ft. 7 inches and was built using traditional skills, an axe and an adze – no power tools. A video called 1000 Hands was made to follow the construction in which school groups, Quaaout Lodge guests, Little Shuswap Lake Indian Band members and more had a part by making a cut with the adze. The canoes were put into the water on Aboriginal Day on June 21 and were on the water for 20 minutes, says Quanstrom. “That whole day was a big thing for us,” he says. “We had 200 guests, it was a a great turnout.” The exterior of the canoes are finished but the insides must dry out before the interiors can be finished.

Wranglers wilt during 9-3 loss Scott Koch Contributor

On a rare Tuesday night encounter, the Kamloops Storm completely dominated the hometown Heat. It was Oct. 17 and Chase was the second best team on the ice. In the first, Alberta’s Quinn Slezak pumped in the opening goal from Zachary Fournier. So much optimism turned into misery as the Storm pulled even on a short-handed tally. In the second, the Kamloops lads scored a pair prior to Josh Bourne from Pat Brady and Evan Hughes, making it 3-2 – a onegoal difference. However, the visitors whacked in a difference-maker to take a two-goal lead. In the third, Kamloops popped in a clincher to ride home with a 5-2 road win. In a complete turnaround on Friday, the Heat thrilled the fans with a goal-pop-palooza versus the 100 Mile House Wranglers.

In the first, Bourne tallied the opener from Fournier and Lucas Smith. 100 Mile got that one back before Cory Loring from Ryan Okino and Brett Alexander made it 2-1 at the end of the first In the second, the Wranglers got a pair of bull’s-eyes to suck the air out of the Art Holding Memorial Arena. However, dashing Kaden Black from Loring and Alexander got the fans’ attention. The goal was the first of seven unanswered counters. Colton Nikiforuk finished off the period assisted by Cam Watson. In the third, Nikiforuk, unsatisfied with one goal, fired in another from Bourne. The rodeo was now underway as local rookie Gavin Mattey scored his first KIJHL goal assisted by Nikiforuk. The Wranglers on a power play stood in awe as Kolten Moore slapped in a short-handed goal from Black

Less then a minute after scoring a short-handed goal, Kolten Moore races in again with the puck. He slides in front of Liam Dodd dragging the puck back to make the shot. Moore would score on the play to make it 8-3 over the 100mile House Wranglers. and Watson. Fifty-five seconds later he did it again, from Watson and Hughes – sometimes the best defence is offence and the fans were now going nuts. The match ended with rookie Dune Wald getting his first KIJHL goal, slapping in a power-play marker from Grady Musgrave and Black. This complete turn-around resulted in a 9-3 victory.

Horsman. Stage manager is Lynda Hooper. A fantastic Quaaout Lodge three-course dinner centered on root beer-braised bison, autumn salad, winter vegetables and cranberry and hibiscus cheesecake. The show takes its name from the main theme. Ronald, an adept auctioneer is auctioning off seven men and on the tables are stacks of “hundred dollar bank notes.” The whole auction is

climaxed by a series of events caused by the arrival of the sheriff and her deputy who have been brought in by the RCMP to help catch the Black Widow Spider Woman.

NEED AN ADJUSTMENT? NEED AN New Welcome! NEEDPatients AN ADJUSTMENT? ADJUSTMENT? New Welcome! NewPatients Patients Welcome!


Feeling Burned Out? FAMILY CHIROPRACTIC Dr. Warren Gage In my Chiropractic office we are constantly discussing with patients the effects of the 3 stresses we all face on a daily basis. The three stresses are physical, chemical, and emotional and they are constantly having a negative effect on our health and wellness. In my 20 years of practice it has been interesting to witness how the amount of stress people must cope with has gradually increased year after year. The unfortunate part of this is I am seeing more health problems arising and countless people who are experiencing burn-out. Signs that someone is no longer adequately coping with stress can show up in a number of ways. The more obvious symptoms of too much stress can be recurring/chronic back pain, neck and shoulder tension and headaches, or a full emotional break-down. However, stress can also manifest in less obvious issues such as physical and emotional exhaustion, frequent colds and illness from reduced immune function, depression and withdrawal from personal relationships or regular social activ-

ities. All of the above signs and symptoms are indicators that your body is no longer adequately coping. It is also an indicator that it is time to make some changes. When these signs and symptoms are ignored or simply masked and covered up, the body will inevitably end up with a much more serious health problem such as cancer, heart disease or stroke. For this reason it is extremely important to address underlying causes of dis-ease in the body, before it evolves into full-blown disease. Some effective ways to help your body cope with burn out are to immediately slow down and take some time for guilt-free rest. Doing nothing other than relaxing and reflecting are essential in order to allow your body a chance to recover. In this state of relaxation, the

next step is to assess your situation to determine what unnecessary commitments can be cancelled, or more importantly, what major stressors in your life must be addressed. Understand the short-term pain of addressing a situation or relationship that is no longer beneficial to your health, greatly out-weighs the pain of continuing on at the expense of your health and sanity. Finally, an important part of stress management is regular Chiropractic care. While spinal adjustments are obviously effective at relieving any spinal problems a person may be experiencing, most people under regular care also realize the large impact the adjustments have on the nervous system. Removing interference within the nervous system (via the adjustment) allows the body to come out of the fight-or-flight response and reduce the stress hormones like cortisol and adrenaline while at the same time

He would do anything to make sure they felt loved and protected. Ken volunteered as a Lieutenant for the Golden Fire Dept. This was a job that he thrived at. Fire fighting always had a special place in his heart. Ken said Vernon was the best place to live

in B.C. and moved his family back and started his career as a Transmission Lineman with BC Hydro. His dedication for his trade and for the people he worked with were evident in everything he did.

He was a very witty intelligent man gifted with a photographic memory. He could pretty much do anything he set his mind to and was always willing to lend a hand.

RONALD MITCHELL August 28, 1940 - October 19, 2017 Ronald Mitchell passed away suddenly of a Cardiac Arrest while driving on his route at 2:42 p.m. close to his farm on Yankee Flats on Thursday, October 19, 2017 at 77 years of age. A celebration of life service will be held from Shuswap Community Church, 3151 6th avenue N.E., Salmon Arm, on Friday morning, October 27th at 11 a.m. with Jack Bowers the Funeral Celebrant with tributes by family and friends, led by Ron’s good friend, M.L.A. Greg Kyllo. Born August 28, 1940 to Norman and Doris Mitchell in Vancouver, BC, shortly after moving to Richmond, BC where he lived there to the age of 21, then marrying Rose-Marie in 1962, having their first child Josh in 1971, then off to the Fraser Valley, their first farm adventure. After the passing of his father in 1976, they had their second son, Jacob, in 1977. Ron and family moved a short time later back to the original house he sold in Richmond earlier. Ron then ventured into the tire business, first with just one truck, later expanding to several trucks and a 5 Bay shop in a brand new industrial park. The first of many hurdles as City was not very supportive of Rose and Ron’s plans. They ran Mitchell Tires for a number of years, being Michelin’s number One Independent rep, which Ron always was proud of, serving the truck industry, retail, and farmers with his shop and mobile repair. Ron was always putting his customers first, even if it meant him going out at all hours of the night. Honesty and integrity he believed was of utmost importance. After selling out to Bridgestone, Ron was ready for the next adventure, so in 1995 offering his boys an opportunity to run a chicken and beef farm in Salmon Arm. And so it began, Ron was always about diversification so it started, some 22 years later, 3 business ventures, 8 employees, and help from all the grandkids, he has Spa Hills Farm (Chicken, Beef, and Crop Land), Spa Hills Custom Ride Restoration, and Spa Hills Compost, his latest proud endeavor. Ron leaves behind is wife of 55 years, Rose, sons, Josh (De-Anna), Jake (Candace), grandkids, Hanna, Tye, Caleb, Mariah, Leah and Isaac. In lieu of flowers friends are welcome to donate to R.J. Haney Heritage Village & Museum, BC Heart & Stroke Foundation, or to the Canadian Diabetes Association in memory of Ron Mitchell. Online condolences may be sent to Ron’s obituary at Arrangements are in the care of Bowers Funeral Home and Crematorium, Salmon Arm.

LECLAIR, WILLIAM “BILL” RAYMOND March 7, 1953 - October 4, 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. Contributions will be gratefully accepted at the Coquitlam Foundation, c/o PO BOX 2, 1207 Pinetree Way, Coquitlam, BC V3B 7Y3. 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.

City deep into budget process Mayor’s report Nancy Cooper Each fall staff and council are actively engaged in the budget process. The budget is a plan for the coming year which strives to maintain a strong financial foundation for the city. It is also a pre-plan for future years, taking into consideration the goals, objectives and priorities of the community. This process establishes service levels, programs and special project work and addresses how each will be funded. The budget functions as a road map and ensures that funds are not overspent. This process officially starts in August when staff begins to prepare for the public budget meeting. The public budget re-

ferral meeting in September gives council a chance to hear and receive input from individuals and organizations. In addition, the many requests received from the public and local organizations throughout the year are also included with the specific referrals for deliberation and consideration when the draft budget is submitted to council. Finally, in November, at a public meeting, council will make changes to the budget and in December the budget will be adopted. As of this year, a new public education component will be added to the Nov. 20 budget meeting. Through the budget process Council aims

to provide for a constant and predictable level of taxation. The 2017 budget included a 1.58 per cent property tax increase and new construction tax revenue of 1.91 per cent. The additional property tax revenue helped to

...In November, at a public meeting, council will make changes to the budget and in December the budget will be adopted.

fund 2017 cost increases which included ice and snow control, policing costs, noxious weed control, wages and benefits and transportation capital expenditures. You may or may not

be aware that in 2016 only 54 per cent of the residential property taxes were retained by the city to fund the annual budget and that $0.14 of each tax dollar levied funded transportation services. The breakdown of other taxes collected consists of: Columbia Shuswap Regional District three per cent, Regional Hospital District three per cent, Okanagan Regional Library two per cent, provincial school taxes 26 per cent and frontage and parcel taxes 11 per cent. This and further information will be made available during the morning on Nov. 20, 2017 during the budget meeting that is sure to provide insight into the budget process and the financial health of the city. Please pencil in Nov. 20 on your calendar and plan to attend. -Nancy Cooper is the mayor of Salmon Arm.
