Tracy hughes salmon arm observer

Salmon Arm RCMP made a dramatic downtown arrest of three suspects who are alleged to have robbed the Tappen Esso on Halloween. At approximately 4:30 p.m. on Oct. 31, the Salmon Arm RCMP received a 911 call from the Tappen-area business reporting an armed robbery had just taken place. The suspect had shown a gun to an employee and demanded money before fleeing the scene in a gray pick-up truck. The situation took place just as the Downtown Treat Trail Halloween event was winding to a close and many families were heading home. The Silver Ford F150 ended up stopped on the Trans-Canada Highway near the Subway in downtown Salmon Arm. A witness was able to provide police with a description of the

occupants of the truck and a detailed description of the getaway vehicle, which included the B.C. licence plate. “An alert officer who was in the downtown Salmon Arm area at the time and en route to the scene in Tappen, spotted the suspect vehicle traveling east on Hwy #1 in the downtown area. Several police cars immediately converged on the vehicle,” says Staff Sgt. Scott West of the Salmon Arm detachment in a press release. The suspect vehicle was stopped at the intersection of the Trans-Canada Highway and Alexander Street where three suspects, two men and a woman, were quickly taken into custody. “Police recovered an undisclosed amount of money, stolen property and a firearm. The vehicle involved was also seized,” says West. Police could later be seen putting items from the truck into plastic

Police asking about Nicole Bell

ONLINE SAFETY BEGINS AT HOME.

Officers go door-to-door in Salmon Arm neighbourhood. Martha Wickett Eagle Valley News

Residents in a Salmon Arm neighbourhood were met by police officers at their front door recently. Between 5 and 7 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 30, RCMP officers from Surrey were going door-to-door in the 10th Street SW area of Salmon Arm, canvassing residents about whether they remember anything of note regarding Sunday, Sept. 3 on the Labour Day weekend. Residents learned that police were asking information as part of their investigation into the disappearance of Nicole Bell, a 31-yearold Malakwa resident who was last seen on Sept. 2 in Sicamous and was reported missing to police on Sept. 7. Jennifer Bertram, who lives near the

RCMP are seeking the public’s assistance in locating Nicole Bell, reported missing since Sept. 2. intersection of 10th Street and 20th Avenue SW, was questioned by an officer. “She was looking for

items of clothing and, more specifically, a silver Ford 150 pickup.” Bertram, as well as other residents, was

shown photos of Bell to see if anyone remembered seeing her. Art Lepp, a 10th Street SW resident, was also asked about what he remembers from Sept. 3. He says the officer visited a number of homes on his street. “He had started from the mall (Piccadilly) and was working his way up the hill.” Other residents in the area who didn’t wish to be named confirmed that Sept. 3 and a silver Ford 150 extended cab truck were of interest to the police doing the canvassing. One said an officer explained they had come up from the Coast because investigators here were swamped and needed extra help. Bell, a Malakwa resident and the mother

of three children, is described as Caucasian, 4 ft. 11 ins. (150 cms) tall, and has blonde hair past her shoulders. She has a piercing in her nose and above her upper lip and occasionally wears glasses. Police and her family have been concerned Continued on A3

Police ask about Ford F150 Continued from A2 for her well-being as it is out of character for her to have no contact with her family for this length of time. “It’s not like Nicole to do this. She is what you would say is a soccer-mom type,” said Tricia Dendekker, Nicole’s sister, in an earlier interview with the Market News. “We just hope to see her again… We pray every day she walks through the door. We pray for the other families to have their loved ones return breathing. As well, we pray that these women and my sister are not scared or harmed.” Anyone with information about the whereabouts of Nicole Bell is asked to contact the Sicamous RCMP at 250-836-2878, or Crime Stoppers, if they wish to remain anonymous, at 1-800222-8477, quoting file number 2017-1401. Bell is one of five women missing from the North Okanagan-Shuswap area. Also missing are Caitlin Potts, Ashley Simpson, Deanna Wertz and Traci Generaux. Police have not stated whether any of these missing women’s cases were the impetus for the current search of the 24-acre Sagmoen farm in Silver Creek, although some of the families, including those of Ashley Simpson and Deanna Wertz, have been told those cases were not what initiated the current police efforts in Silver Creek. Jane Shirley, executive director of the Shuswap Area Family Emergency (SAFE) Society, notes that this is a difficult time for the community.

The RCMP canvassed houses on 10th Street SW on Monday, Oct. 30. “Our goal is to offer support to those who are impacted by fear, trauma and violence. This time is particularly painful for those families who are currently looking for their loved ones who have disappeared from our region,” she says. “It takes great strength for a victim of a crime to come forward and this needs to be recognized. There is help out there for those impacted by violence. We continue to expand community awareness and support.” She urges residents to share information about abuse and avail-

able resources. “You could make a difference in a life that has been impacted by fear and abuse. No one is immune to the impact of violence. “You don’t have to be hit to be abused – emotional, spiritual, financial and sexual abuse leaves invisible scars. Bullying, harassment and online harassment/stalking can affect anyone. You are not alone.” The SAFE Society offers 24-hour confidential support services for those exposed to violence.

A total of 130 building permits have been issued to the end of September, making it a record-breaking year for development in Salmon Arm.

Mayor Nancy Cooper has a sunny view of Salmon Arm’s growth. While population statistics will not be available until the end of the month, Cooper says year-to-date building statistics are the highest on record as of the end of September. “There have been 100 new single-family

homes and when you add in modular and multi-residence developments, we’re up to 130,” she said. “We’ve had a lot of people moving in and school enrolment is up.” Cooper says she is pretty excited by the stats, particularly since the majority of the homes being built are pre-sold rather than speculative. “That is very good

news,” she says, pointing out that while the city also needs larger commercial developments, they tend to be built by out-of-town crews, whereas smaller developments tend to be completed by local developers and trades. “There are also spinoffs, people building new homes is good for local building supply stores, contractors, flooring, furniture.”

sex workers need support

The discovery of human remains in the community of Silver Creek has put the spotlight on an issue that those on the street have known about for years. Women who work in the sex trade are in grave danger each and every day. And it must be noted that most of the women missing near Salmon Arm are not considered to be part of the sex trade. Their common denominator is that they are women. Some are questioning why it has taken so long for police to act on something that has been well-known to those in the vulnerable community. “Why are we just jumping on this when we see a bone and a body part?” said Angie Lohr of Kelowna-based HOPE Outreach. “Why didn’t the RCMP say there was a safety concern in August? Why did they wait three more weeks? What’s being done to safeguard these women?” Lohr said she knows the RCMP are busy, but suspects that issues with sex-trade workers fall to the bottom of the pile all too often. It’s a reality that people in northern B.C. have been living with for a long time with the number of missing and murdered women who live along Highway 16, what has been termed the Highway of Tears. It’s not something that will be solved easily but more effort is needed in the communities that we live in. We can’t look away anymore, pretending that it’s not our problem. This is our city and there are people in danger every day. Kudos to Kelowna tech company YodelMe, which stepped forward with an idea for a pilot project for sex trade workers that would geotag their location in an emergency. We need more community thinking, more outside the box thinking, more help for the most vulnerable in our community. -Kelowna Capital News

the tender tale of two pack rats the great outdoors James Murray The other night I couldn’t sleep so, after getting up and pouring a large glass of milk, I decided to watch a bit of television. Flicking through the channels, there was absolutely nothing worth watching. So I put a tape in the old VHS machine and settled down in the recliner to watch Showdown at Williams Creek, a movie loosely based on the life and times of John George Brown, also known as Kootenai Brown. It wasn’t really much of a tale, but it held my attention for one simple reason. I once knew a fellow who owned a .32 caliber Winchester Model 94 rifle that was used in the making of the movie. Henry Cooper was a shy, soft-spoken, unassuming man who was well into his eighties when I knew him back in the 1990s. I recall one time when we were sitting in his kitchen having a cup of coffee. He had showed me the rifle and was showing me pictures of the

movie set, when I happened to look out the kitchen window. I noticed something moving in his wood pile. It was silver grey, about the size of a rabbit and had a long furry tail. “You’ve got a pack rat in your wood pile,” I said matter-of-factly. “Yes, I know,” he said, equally matter-of-factly. He then proceeded to tell me he’d first noticed it some months back and, how not wanting to kill the poor thing, he’d borrowed a neighbour’s live trap. “It didn’t take too long to catch the little feller,” he said. “Used a bit of peanut butter and got him the first night. Decided to take him out to the far end of the lake, where there’s some old, broken-down remains of a farm. Figured he could move right into one of the buildings and make himself a new home. Thought I’d give him something to eat before relocating him – so to speak. Gave him some raspberries

that I had picked and a crust of bread – even put butter on the bread for him. The little critter looked up at me, sort of to say thanks, and then proceeded to eat every last bit. “Darn friendly little guy. I almost hated to see him go.” “They’re sort of smelly little creatures though,” I intervened. “I guess so,” Henry said, as if he didn’t care if pack rats were smelly or not. “Anyways, after he finished eatin’ I put both the trap and the little pack rat in the back of the pick-up truck and drove out to the end of the lake. I took the trap out and set it down on the road. When I opened the trap door to let him go, he just sort of took a few steps and then set down on his haunches – looking right up at me. I waved my hand at him and told him to skidaddle, but he just sat there.” I laughed and asked what he did next. “I just picked up the trap, got in the truck and started driving off,” he said. “The thing is, I just couldn’t help but look in the rear-view mirror. He was still sitting there watching me drive away.” “So how did he get back

here?” I asked. “That’s the funny thing,” he said. “I dunno, but for some reason I just couldn’t leave the little feller sitting there in the middle of the road. So I backed up, got the trap out of the truck and set it down beside him. Darned if he didn’t up and walk right back in like he belonged there.” Then Henry looked me right in the eyes and said, “So I brought him back home and let him go there in the woodpile.” Now the reason I’m relating this story is because this past summer I had to dispose of a pack rat myself. A neighbour had caught one in a live trap as well, but was unwilling to take care of its relocation. I somehow volunteered. I too fed the pack rat before heading out. I gave it some dried cranberries that were in my jacket pocket and then proceeded to drive it and the trap to what I figured would be a perfect spot to let it go – lots of available food and water, with several old outbuildings near by. When I opened the trap door, it scampered off, apparently quite happy and none the worse for its ordeal.

Habitat loss a threat to grizzly bears SHUSWAP PASSION Jim Cooperman British Columbia grizzly bears are making the news these days, but the news is mixed. While conservationists are applauding the recent decision by the BC Government to end the grizzly trophy hunt, a new audit by the Auditor General takes aim at the lack of adequate planning, inventory efforts, and monitoring by government ministries. Here in the Shuswap, an initiative is gaining momentum to ban recreational vehicles from the Joss Mountain region that is prime grizzly habitat. The ban on grizzly trophy hunting begins on November 30th after this year’s hunting season is finished. Approximately 250 bears are shot each year in the province, with most of the fees going into general revenue. There is some concern that the new rules will still allow hunting for meat, although it is unlikely that many hunters will take advantage of this loophole. Guide outfitters are displeased about the impact on their business and argue that the true threat to grizzly bears is not from hunting but from habitat loss. In her hard-hitting report, Auditor General Carol Bellringer agrees that habitat loss from primarily industrial development is the major threat to the grizzly bear population. Since settlement began, over

one-half of the grizzly population in North America has been extirpated. Out of the 56 grizzly populations in B.C., nine are threatened and only one area, the North Cascades, has a recovery plan, however it was never implemented. The audit reveals that although a provincial inventory and monitoring strategy exists, it is not being implemented due to a lack of dedicated funding. Despite the fact that road building is one of the major impacts on habitat, there is no overall plan for resource roads. One of the major reasons why the grizzly bear program has not been working is the overlapping roles and responsibilities of the Ministries of Environment, which has the sole responsibility to manage, protect and conserve wildlife and Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations, which makes the decisions that impact populations and habitat. Given that B.C. is one of the last places in North America with healthy populations of grizzly bears and that these animals are an indicator of the government’s ability to manage wildlife and maintain healthy populations, the audit’s recommendations need to be applied appropriately. Research shows that forestry activities can degrade grizzly habitat,

especially road building. The Okanagan Shuswap LRMP provides specific direction in grizzly habitat zones to limit the percentage of the landscape in young forest, to maintain ground cover adjacent to avalanche tracks, and to ensure new roads are quickly deactivated. However, there has been no monitoring of the LRMP and under the professional reliance system neither the public nor the ministries have access to specific logging plans. A new threat to

grizzlies has emerged, off-road recreational vehicles (ORVs), as with higher power and design improvements the alpine is becoming invaded and in places, destroyed. Consequently, senior government biologist Andrew Walker has submitted a proposal to the minister to ban off-road vehicles in this 15,000-hectare area above 1,700 metres. Walker first heard about the problem from hunters who told him about the destruction they have witnessed

and their concern that due to the short growing season the land will take a long time to recover, if ever. If the new provincial government moves forward on its goal to re-establish land use planning, one of the first projects should be to monitor how well the LRMP objectives have been met, including those for grizzly bears. If problems are identified then improvements will be needed and more land may need to be protected.

DIRECTOR’S NOTES Paul Demenok All members of executive committees in non-profit organizations in Area C, along with all members of the public are invited to participate in a workshop being held on Wednesday November 15th at 6:00 pm at the Cedar Centre. This is the third workshop that has been conducted with Area C non-profit groups on granting opportunities and requirements. The first workshop reviewed the criteria and process for obtaining CSRD grants-in-aid and Gas Tax grants. The second workshop covered BC Gaming Grants, the BC Rural Dividend Fund and grants through the Shuswap Community Foundation (SCF). On November 15th we will discuss establishing endowment funds through the Shuswap Community Foundation, and how they can be used to help fund annual non-profit expenses. Our thanks go

to Melanie Dyer and Gary Brook from the SCF who will be leading this section of our workshop. Another key topic for the third workshop will include a discussion on forecasting 2018 grant budgets at the CSRD. At the meeting a worksheet will be provided to all participants to use in outlining their potential grant applications for 2018. In 2016, Area C non-profit groups provided their CSRD grant application predictions for 2017 and this input was very helpful in establishing the grant-inaid budget for 2017. As 2018 will be an election year, there are some important bylaw requirements that will affect the timing of grant applications. A third element to our meeting will include a workshop discussion and input session on how we can go about enhancing communications and collaborations amongst

all non-profit groups in the South Shuswap. And finally, all participants are encouraged to bring their special events schedule for 2018 to the meeting. This information will be collected and used to help create a South Shuswap events calendar, and as appropriate, may also be used by Shuswap Tourism on their website’s calendar of events. This portion of the meeting will be led by Karen Brown, manager for the Arts Council for the South Shuswap, and we thank Karen for her leadership on this initiative. I think we are all very fortunate to have the non-profit organizations that we have in Area C. Collectively, these groups provide all residents with a very impressive and wide range of arts and cultural events, hobby

and special interest groups, fundraisers, exercise and physical activities, and terrific social and culinary events. Events conducted by non-profit groups in the South Shuswap contribute substantially to our community spirit, personality, and quality of life. And because of this, I think we all owe a huge debt of gratitude to the hundreds of volunteers who have helped make the South Shuswap a great place to live. I would encourage all residents of the South Shuswap to consider volunteering their free time to a local non-profit organization. The costs are minimal and the potential benefits are enormous. -Paul Demenok is the Area C Director for the Columbia Shuswap Regional District

advice not the answer NaN dickie Opening Our Eyes It would be wonderful if those of us who experience episodes of depression could be healed by our well-meaning and loving friends and family members offering, “All you have to do is….” The suggestions are sincere, and by following through one or two of them, a depressed person may find some temporary relief—for instance by going for a walk in fresh air, or going to a movie. However, to believe that one can end a depressive episode by exercising, pursuing a goal, or being distracted for a time, is unfortunately unfounded. These activities and pursuits may be helpful for a time, but do not address the underlying reasons that someone is depressed. Nor do they resolve those issues. People who experience recurring episodes of depression often harbour a deep sense of shame, which is worsened by the stigma they face. As well, they may feel that they aren’t worth

anything. Someone told me she felt she was taking up some valuable space on earth that someone worthwhile could occupy. That is how despondent and useless one can feel. When one is trapped in the grips of “the black dog,” it’s easy for one to say “Why bother? It won’t make any difference if I try something. It won’t work.” It’s true, it often doesn’t. What makes it even more difficult is that even if a depressed person decides to try something deemed constructive, their physical and mental energy may be so low that the most they can do is to reach the sidewalk from the inside of their home in attempting a walk. Furthermore, they may not want to be seen by other people at all, as they assume others will see them as they see themselves— worthless, undeserving, even poisonous. Their isolation from others, including family and friends, only heightens these feelings.

DIANE Special Olympics athlete, Diane, moved to Salmon Arm as a child. She went to school here, graduated, and has been a part of Shuswap Association for Community Living for many years. She participates in SOBC Bocce and Club Fit, and helps out by volunteering at fundraising events. Her favourite SOBC memory was going to Oliver for a bocce tournament and staying overnight in a motel. She enjoys other community sports such as curling and her hobbies include art, crafts, needle point, and LiteBright.

Given all these distressing realities, what can we do to help those who are depressed other than giving advice? I can ask a depressed friend is she would like to go for a walk with me, or to go to a movie with me. I can take him to a restaurant for a nutritious meal. (Many depressed people don’t bother eating well.) We can tell our depressed family member that we care, that we are sorry they he is now ill, and that, believe it or not, he will come out on the other side of this hell. We can listen to her without judgment or advice. All that we, as supporters, “have to do” is show compassion, be

INFORMATION DESIGNED TO PROMOTE AND ENHANCE YOUR WELLBEING

Healthy happy pregnancy FAMILY CHIROPRACTIC Dr. Warren Gage With a special interest in pregnancy and pediatrics we have a large number of pregnant moms who come for regular Chiropractic care. The adjustments to their spine help the body cope with the changes that occur during pregnancy and prepare them for a natural and easier delivery. From a structural point of view, all women who have gone through a pregnancy can attest to the significant changes

their bodies go through. In the last half of the pregnancy particularly, significant strain is placed on the spine and pelvis. Unfortunately this stress/ strain often leads to low back pain, sciatica, as well as neck and shoulder tension and headaches. The encouraging part is that Chiropractic adjustments are both safe and effective to restore proper function in the spine. One of the most important areas of the spine

that is addressed by your chiropractor, are the sacroiliac (SI) joints in the pelvis. If the SI joints are not moving properly not only can they become extremely painful, they will also often cause the pubic joint in the front to become irritated and inflamed. Subluxated SI joints will also cause challenges with delivery due to the pelvis not opening adequately which can result in a much more difficult delivery for both mother and baby. Obviously it is important to be regualrly adjusted throughout your preganacy by a Chiropractor, but there are stretches that are also beneficial. Pregnancy

classes in YOGA and Pilates are very beneficial and I also encourage moms to do a lot of daily squatting at home. Squatting is the best position to deliver a baby. It is in this position where the pelvis is able to open to maximium capcity. Practicing these stretches during pregnancy will help build endurance in your legs and will prepare your body for the big day. Delivery is a often a long arduous process, if you don’t have the strength/ stamina to maintain the a squatting position, birthing your child may be more strenuous than necessary. The other benefit of regular Chiropractic

care during pregnancy is from the neurological aspect. All of the nerves in mom’s lower spine are controlling and directing this amazing process of housing and growing a tiny human. Subluxations in the spine and pelvis will interfere with the normal function of these nerves. To give your developing baby the best start possible, moms need to maintain a clear functioning nervous system through regular Chiropractic care.

Pregnancy and heart disease Pregnancy is a happy time for many women, but during the nine months of gestation, conditions can develop that put moms-to-be at risk a higher risk of heart disease and stroke. According to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada, preeclampsia and gestational diabetes can develop during pregnancy, potentially putting women’s long-term health at risk. • Preeclampsia: There is no known way to prevent preeclampsia, a condition related to increased blood pressure and protein in expecting mothers’ urine. An increase in protein is indicative of a problem with the pregnant woman’s kidneys. How to prevent preeclampsia may remain a mystery, but women who have high blood pressure or are obese before giving birth may be prone to the condition. Age also may affect the likelihood that a woman will develop preeclampsia, as women younger than 20 and those older than 40 are considered to be at greater risk of developing the condition than

those between the ages of 21 and 39. The risk for preeclampsia is also greater among women who are expecting twins and those who have diabetes, kidney disease, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, or scleroderma. Physicians can treat preeclampsia, and women who develop the condition can have successful pregnancies and give birth to healthy babies. • Gestational diabetes: Pregnancy hormones can interfere with the

ability a pregnant woman’s body has to use insulin efficiently. As a result, women must produce extra insulin while pregnant. If that cannot happen, then blood sugar levels can rise and lead to gestational diabetes. Gestational diabetes produces no warning signs, so women must ensure their glucose levels are monitored throughout their pregnancies. The long-term ramifications of gestational diabetes

can be significant, as the condition can raise both mother and baby’s risk of developing diabetes later in life. • Stroke: Women can suffer from stroke at any time during their pregnancy, though the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada notes that their risk is high during childbirth and in the first few months after childbirth. Preexisting conditions, such as blood vessel malformation or eclampsia,

are often the culprits when pregnant women or new mothers suffer strokes. WT175974

CSRD backs off on tipping fee deadline Barb Brouwer Salmon Arm Observer

It’s not a ban, it’s a disincentive and it has been delayed until next year. That’s the word from Columbia Shuswap Regional District Environmental Health team leader Ben Van Nostrand, who asked directors to approve reducing tipping fees for mixed loads containing organic waste at the Oct. 19 board meeting in Salmon Arm.

A Sept. 13 story in the Observer outlined changes to CSRD’s organic waste diversion program that went into effect on July 1 and included a jump in fees for mixed loads containing organic waste from $80 a tonne to $160 a tonne. Van Nostrand says the intent from the beginning was to work with businesses. To that end, CSRD has had many meetings with big producers of food waste, with a focus on

education and the barriers for participation, be they space, bin sizes or costs. “Our intent has never been to charge the increased tipping fee to start with and the resolution approved by the board formalizes our intent around focusing on education rather than penalizing someone who is not participating,” he says. “In my opinion, if we go through the winter and into the spring and

find some restaurants and larger institutions are not participating, that’s when we need to talk to them about the ability to increase the tipping fees.” But Van Nostrand says he is encouraged by what he are hearing from business owners and institutions and points out he has received several calls with requests for information on how they can be involved in the program.

Another “carrot” the regional district is offering is a business recognition program by acknowledging participating businesses on the CSRD website and by giving them stickers to place in their windows. “We want to celebrate the folks that are making that positive change,” says Van Nostrand. “We’ve had calls from Sicamous and Sorrento with folks asking how they can get on-board.”

Attracted to the Cariboo-Chilcotin ShuSwAp outdoorS Hank Shelley The Meadow Lake turn-off road, from Highway 97 North above Clinton, is long and dusty as it traverses alkali lakes, meadows and sloughs. The road also has a remarkable history of early settlers, trappers, First Nations traditional lands, and ranching. Today, as years ago, it takes a certain type of person to feel at home. It’s also a state of mind in strong-willed and independent folk. Overall then, I guess you could sum it up best by a story in Heart of the Cariboo/Chilcotin by award-winning writer Paul St Pierre. With a quick phone call to Heritage House publishing, I received approval to expand on what it takes to be a Cariboo rancher. First ya need a pickup truck. It needs power steering and brakes. A deer gun rack behind the seat, and a dog. Any dog that barks will do. Next a good accountant. One that knows all the federal regulations on grain subsidies, etc. Next, find

an attractive/intelligent well-educated girl, who doesn’t mind packing water in a pail, and getting laundry soap for her birthday. Raise lots of kids. You’ll need the boys to work the place. To keep the girls happy, you’ll have to buy them a horse, each they can spoil with love and cube sugar. Next you will need $8 boots. A nickel-plated belt buckle. Some rope. A set of moose horns for the living room wall, and a cheque book. Once you have put this all together, you might want to buy a cow and bull together and see if anything happens! The owner of the present ranch says he had the labour relations folks come out one day because a former employee complained on wages. A person came out o ask questions. The rancher replied: Well, there’s my farmhand, I pay him $200 a week plus room and board. The cook has been here 18 months. I pay her $150 a week plus free room and board. Then there is the half

wit, who works 18 hours a day. He makes $10 dollars a week. Does 90 per cent of the work. I buy him a bottle of rye once a week. He also sleeps with my wife occasionally. “That’s the guy I want

to talk to – the half wit,” says the agent. That would be me, replied the rancher. It’s great county to explore next chance you get. Next week a complete hunting report on the beautiful Shuswap!

PeeWee ‘Tips win home tourney The Salmon Arm GM Pee Wee Silvertips not only hosted a successful home tournament this past weekend they also took home the top prize. The Silvertips opened the tournament against a pesky South Delta squad that took advantage of a sluggish start by the home team. However, after being down 3-0 early, the Silvertips got back on track and rattled off six straight goals to win the game 6-3 including two from game MVP Brayson York. The Silvertips continued their round robin play with three games

The ‘Tips rose to the challenge starting the day with a 10-1 dominating win over Winfield, followed by an 8-3 win over Prince George before defeating Williams Lake 11-6 in the final game of the night that saw Gage Parrell score four goals to go along with his two assists. Undefeated through round robin play, the Silvertips went directly into Sunday’s championship game where they once again faced South Delta. This time the Silvertips cruised to a 9-2 victory to claim

Christmas inspires artistic creations To contact Daryl call 250-832-6396 or email marychuk@telus.net.

FRIENDS & NEIGHBOURS Leah Blain About this time of year Daryl Arychuk puts on Christmas music while he’s working. “I always work to music, with a cup of hot chocolate. What it does is bring back good memories - time with my mom, or family, friends, or tobogganing.” His workshop windows and the surrounding shelves are filled with a beautiful array of stunning colours and figures. “I spent too much time in Christmas shops as a child,” he says smiling. This is the world of The Stained Glass Garden Shoppe which he runs out of his home on Grandview Bench Road. “I get a lot of my inspiration from nature,” says Daryl. “I worked at Gardom Lake Bible Camp for 10 years, that’s when I was around nature a lot. It was a neat place to see deer, fish, birds all those things we take for granted. We see it and then we get on with our busy lives, it’s not until you have an opportunity to capture it (artistically speaking) that you have it for a long time.” He points out his signature ‘scrolls’ with birds and flowers. Each one is, of course, unique in shape and colour scheme. “I make all the pieces individually, there is twisted wire on the back and the illusion is the bird is hovering over the flower. See how it comes to life?” he asks as he puts a piece in front of the window and the sunlight streams through it. There are many Christmas and winter themed pieces including small nativity sets, angels, snowmen, Christmas trees, wreaths, and his special ‘country kitchen.’ But

there are many pieces that celebrate the great outdoors. “Each one has a story,” he says smiling pointing out the dragonflies, frogs, salmon, loons, and various birds. Daryl became intrigued with the artistry of stained glass years ago while he was on a vacation with his wife, Marita. “I was bit by the bug when we were in ‘old town’ in San Diego and I met Dave Lowery and his wife, Diane, who are world-accomplished artists. He gave me a good piece of advice. He said, ‘There are 80 ways to work with glass, zero in on two or three.” The three Daryl chose were copper foiling, lead wrap, and ‘a little wee bit of fusing.’” After an accident with left him with limited mobility of his arms, working with stained glass became

Playing hit-and-miss hockey Last weekend’s update starts with a home game at the Art Holding Memorial Arena, where the soaring Eagles from Sicamous landed to face the Heat on Friday the 27th. For potentially the first time in Chase history, the game could be described as “mellow.” In the first, Chase popped a pair, the first from Kaden Black assisted by Brett Alexander and Cory Loring, the second from Alexander helped along by Black and Grady Musgrave. It was seven minutes into the second period before the first minor infraction was called, the Heat received the only three minors in the period. On the second one Sicamous netted a power play goal to make the tame affair interesting.

In the third, Sicamous received the only three minors, and Chase pocketed another duo of goals. It was Josh Bourne on the man advantage from Ryan Okino and Kolten Moore, and then to seal the deal it was Evan Hughes from Bourne and Dune Wald. The final result was a 4-1 win, backstopped by Mathew Ens who repelled 29 0f 30 he faced. Saturday night the 28th in 100 Mile House was a different kettle of fish. Lots of hits and many more missed opportunities eventually cost the Heat an important two points in the standings. Chase got the only counter in the first from Cam Watson, aided and abetted by Moore and Bourne. In the second, Zachary Fournier score with the extra man, assisted by Watson and Mus-

Then the Wranglers struck goal in the Cariboo, before Colton Nikiforuk on the power play from Black and Fournier made it a 3-1 lead after 40 minutes. Apparently happy with the production to this point, the Heat idled away a good bit of the next 20 min-

utes as the Wranglers popped in four unanswered goals to take a 5-3 victory in front of their pleased fans. New goalie Billy Cawthorn stopped 39 of 44 in an effort to give his teammates a chance at claiming the valuable two points. The Heat remain in

third place in the division, two points back of the Wranglers. Next up, the division-leading Revelstoke Grizzlies journey west for a Friday night the third encounter, another important midseason matchup that the locals can’t afford to squander.

Woman shot when man trips RCMP Report

A stumble led to possibly dangerous consequences. On Monday, Oct. 16, Chase RCMP received a report of a person who had been shot. Police say investigation found that the day before, a 58-year-old man was walking with a .22 calibre rifle in the Adams Lake area. The man stumbled, causing the rifle to fire, striking a woman in the shoulder. Her injuries were non-life-threatening. The man was arrested for charges including possessing a firearm without a licence and careless use of a firearm. He was later released on a promise to appear in court.

www.saobserver.net

MARGARET ROMYN Margaret Cornelia Romyn (née Hooymans) passed away peacefully in Shuswap Lake General Hospital, Salmon Arm, B.C. on October 17, 2017, at the grand age of 99 years. Born in the Netherlands on June 8, 1918, Margaret came to Vernon, B.C. in 1952 with her husband, Adrianus (Adrian), and their first three children. They moved to Salmon Arm in 1957, completing their family with three more children along the way. In 1960, the family moved to Notch Hill, where Margaret farmed with her husband for 35 years. Romyn Hill Farm is now in its third generation with the Romyn family. In 2005, she and Adrian moved to Shuswap Lodge. After Adrian’s passing, she moved to Pioneer Lodge and then to Bastion Place for her final years. Margaret was blessed with a sharp mind, always enjoying visits from friends and family. Margaret was predeceased by her husband, Adrian, on January 27, 2009. She leaves her loving and dedicated children Anne Doidge of Edmonton, Adrian (Marianne) Romyn of Notch Hill, John Romyn (Barb Roberts) of Edmonton, Jack (Laura) Romyn of Salmon Arm, Tina (Dave) Douglas of Sicamous, Lola (Gary) Cochrane of Calgary, twelve grandchildren, and five great grandchildren. A graveside service will be held in June 2018 (date to be announced) at Notch Hill Cemetery, where Margaret will be resting with her late husband, Adrian.

FRASER, Donald Laing We regret to announce the passing of Don Fraser at the Vernon Jubilee Hospital on October 10, 2017 at the age of 78. Don was born in New Westminster, BC, in 1939, the youngest of 4 children to Frances May and William Leslie Fraser of Maple Ridge. Don attended school in Long Lake, Chase and Kamloops, BC. In Chase, he made many lasting friendships, worked a variety of jobs and learned how to play golf. Don spent most of his working life at Evergreen Press in Vancouver. He retired to Vernon in 1995 where he enjoyed condo life, made many friends and golfed at Spallumcheen Course. Don is survived by his three sisters, Barbara (Pete) Wicklund of Olive, Jean Sellers of Maple Ridge and Shirley Cumberland of Salmon Arm. Thanks to Dr. Lang for Don’s care and thanks to the many friends and neighbours who expressed sympathy. At his request, there will be no service or memorial.

SCHAFFER, STEVE (STEFAN) December 13, 1939 - October 21, 2017 Steve was born in Judenburg, Austria and came to Canada in 1957, settling in Kitimat, BC where he worked for Alcan and trained as a welder. He was a Charter student of Simon Fraser University, earned a degree in Mathematics and Physics and became a teacher. After marrying his wife of 45 years, Norma, he was employed in the education field as a teacher, college administrator and apprenticeship counsellor in a number of BC and Yukon communities. Upon retirement, Steve and Norma moved to the old Krebs’ homestead on Highway 97B in Salmon Arm where he began his second career, as a farmer, known for his quality horse hay. His welding and fabricating skills were often employed to repair or modify neighbours’ machinery and he took great pride in being able to fix ‘almost anything’. He was seldom still and always ready to lend a hand when he saw someone in need of help. He died doing what he loved best - sitting on the seat of his tractor driving across the fields. Steve will be greatly missed by Norma and family and friends in Canada and Austria. A Coffee Drop-In to share memories of Steve (and his favourite desserts!) will be held on Saturday, November 4 from 11am to 1 pm at the Salvation Army Church, 191 2nd Ave NE (across from the Cenotaph). If you wish, a donation in Steve’s memory may be made to the Salvation Army’s Lighthouse Shelter, c/o PO Box 505, Salmon Arm, V1E 4N6. Share memories and condolences online through Steve’s obituary at www. fischersfuneralservices.com.

RICHARDSON, PETER Born 82 years ago in Scarborough, England. He was charming and quirky by nature. He taught English (poetry) in the Sooke School District until early retirement, followed by working as a gardener, and driving for Island Medical Labs. Peter enjoyed his yearly travels to Mexico, Jamaica, and often came to Salmon Arm. Left heartbroken are twin daughters Rachel, Susan (John), son Andrew (Donna), wife Shirley, stepdaughter Ingrid, mother in law Florence, almost-son Pete (Liz) and grand-animals Rolo and Marley. He was “silly old granddad” to Ariel, Shea, Emma and Alexa. He will be greatly missed.

Friday, November 3, 2017 Page A23 LUKAS (RAYMOND) BLACK February 22,1990 - July 17,2017 It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our son.

AMELIA “MIN” TARLIER January 15, 1930 – October 14, 2017 Cherished wife of Ron, beloved mother of Denise, Michelle, and Paul, and adored grandmother of Alicia, passed away peacefully on October 14, 2017, in Salmon Arm, BC. She lived a long life, filled with love of family and many lifelong close friends, and many adventures and fun times: Skiing on the North Shore mountains, fishing trips into remote corners of BC, water skiing and boating on Shuswap Lake, fall camping trips with Ron, often to the farm in Alberta, and countless grand parties and good laughs with “the gang” – mom always remembered and was grateful for all the good times and good friends in her life. She was warm, gentle, compassionate, and laughed easily. We delighted in making mom laugh til she cried, which was not difficult. Mom was born Milcia Yasenchuk, in Smoky Lake, AB, the youngest of Joseph and Sophie Yasenchuk’s four children. She spent her early childhood in nearby Bellis, before her father moved the family to Vancouver in 1937. Mom was living on Capitol Hill in Burnaby and just starting school when she first met Allie, her lifelong and closest friend. The girls were still in high school when they embarked on the grand adventure of making their way across Burrard Inlet (sometimes by ferry) and up into the North Shore mountains (by trolly car or bus, followed by a long hike) to learn to ski. It was on a trip up Mt. Seymour that Min first met Ron. He was building a cabin with a group of the guys. The guys had a “no girls” pact, to avoid distractions from the serious work of cabin building, but Mom volunteered to chink log walls for Ron, and the rest is history… they celebrated their 67th wedding anniversary this past September 16th. They went on to build another two houses together, first in Lynn Valley, where they lived for almost 40 years and raised their family. Later, they built their retirement dream home at Blind Bay, where they have lived since 1991. Mom is forever remembered by husband Ron and her three children, Denise, Michelle (Rob) Allan, and Paul (Suzanne); granddaughter Alicia Norman; and dear friends Allie Johnstone, Harold Enqvist, and Jill Guerin. She also leaves several nieces and nephews. She is pre-deceased by her parents, sister Alice (Clark), brothers Walter and Merle, and many, if not most, of her long time friends. No service, but family and friends will be advised of plans for a small celebration of life in the spring. The family gratefully declines flowers; for anyone so inclined, we suggest donations to the Alzheimer’s Society, Shuswap Lake Hospital Foundation, or the animal welfare charity of your choice. Share condolences and memories online through Min’s obituary at www. fischersfuneralservices.com. Success To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded. -- Ralph Waldo Emerson

OSTER, AL December 23, 1924 - October 28, 2017 ORDER OF CANADA RECIPIENT, Al Oster passes away at age 92. Singer / songwriter Al Oster, also known as the Yukon Balladeer, passed away at the Salmon Arm Memorial Hospital on Saturday, October 28th, of natural causes. Albert Adam Oster was born December 23, 1924 at Vanguard, Saskatchewan the eldest son of John Oster and Mary Stregger. On December 30, 1947, Al was joined in marriage to Mary Ellen Stanbury at the Langley Anglican Church in Langley, British Columbia. Born to this union were three sons and one daughter, Donna, Lorne, James and William. Al Oster was one of the first since Robert Service to write and publish poetry about Klondike Gold Rush folklore; and one of the first Canadians to compose and sing folk music about historical Canadian folklore legends, and to preserve these compositions on LP Records. He subsequently attained national recognition for his musical works in 1968 by being the first Canadian composer to receive the BMI CANADA Certificate of Honour Achievement Award for an outstanding contribution to Canadian music in the country / folk music category. In 1993 he received the Yukon Heritage Award from the Yukon Historical and Museums Association for his contribution to the preservation of Yukon history; and in April, 1999 he was appointed a Member of the Order of Canada for his contribution to Canadian heritage. In 2002 he was again awarded recognition by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II for his musical contribution to Canada history. Al has left behind his widow Mary, 4 children mentioned above, one half brother and many grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces and nephews. He will be well remembered for his extreme love of the north which he expressed over and over again in his music and the songs recorded over the years and will live on in everyone’s Book of Yukon Memories. Arrangements entrusted to Fischer’s Funeral Services & Crematorium Ltd., Salmon Arm (250) 833-1129. Share memories and condolences through Al’s obituary at www. fischersfuneralservices.com.

DERAINE, ANGELA JENNIE On Saturday October 21, 2017 Angela Jennie Deraine passed away peacefully at Bastion Place surrounded by her family. She was predeceased by her brother, Michael; mother, Natalin; and father, Stanley. Angela was born on January 1, 1956 in Prince Rupert, B.C. She lived in different cities throughout B.C. working as a secretary for the BC Forest Service, as an office administrator for Dillingham Construction and, most recently, as a manager at Zellers where she worked for 20 years. Angela loved to spend time with family and enjoyed cooking. She loved to garden and always surrounded herself with beautiful flowers.

MAYNARD BRUCE CAMPBELL February 19, 1942 - October 21, 2017 On February 19, 1942, Neil and Naoma Campbell of Silver Creek welcomed their new son Maynard Bruce, who joined James, and Murray along with sisters Christina and Caroline. We always said that mom and dad spoiled our baby brother but it was really us.  We loved to take that cute little boy with us no matter what we were doing.  His first years of schooling were in the old log school operated by the Seventh-adventist Church in Silver Creek along with his other family members.  While going to high school was not his favourite idea of fun, he found himself to soon and to young in the work force. The lessons he learned being an employee were very valuable when he became a successful logging contractor on the mountains around Salmon Arm.  Especially one employee told us how kind and always thoughtful he was.  Another contractor stated that he was very calm in dealing with all the different men that he worked for him.  He met the personnel  problems with professionalism. The joy of his life was his wife Shannon and he missed her so much when she passed away several years ago.  They still had more dreams to fulfil.  Enjoying much time on the golf course with friends and travelling together was their life. We will miss our brother, who had continued to live in Salmon Arm.  We are appreciative of his physicians and the nurses who took care of him at the hospital, where he passed away on October 21.  His family is so thankful for his nephew Kevin Norris and wife Denise as well as sister in law, Bev Turner for the many hours helping him and being there during his last hours. Cousin Ted Edes joined Murray and Caroline as we said goodby to our baby brother in that hospital room. Maynard will be at rest in Mt. Ida Cemetery with his beloved wife, Shannon, with an open reception at the Mountainside room at Bowers Funeral Home on Saturday, November 11, 2017 at 1 p.m. allowing time to share memories with the family. Online condolences may be sent to Maynard’s obituary at www.bowersfuneralservice.com Arrangements are in the care of Bowers Funeral Home and Crematorium, Salmon Arm.

If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane, I’d walk right up to Heaven and bring you Home again.

www.saobserver.net STARINK, ISABELLA “NOLLY” ARNOLDA (de Jong) March 13, 1923 - Oct. 26, 2017 It is with sadness we announce that Mom passed away unexpectedly in the early hours of Thursday, October 26th at Mountain View Manor in Ladner, British Columbia. She was predeceased by her beloved husband of 43 years, Dr. Adriaan W.J. Starink; her sister Lidje Corley, and her eldest daughter, Monique Lorimer (Larry). She is lovingly remembered by: her brother, Robert de Jong (Els); her son, Herman (Norma); her daughters, Wilma (Jerry) and Janine (Dean), her son-in-law, Larry; her grandsons Caleb and Nathaniel (Sara); her great-grandson, Rex; her cousin, Nettie van de Putten; and her nieces, Nolly and Heleen and her nephews James and Thijs. Mom was born March 13, 1923, in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Throughout her life she was a strong and principled person who had lived through the ‘Malaise’ in Europe and the  World War II occupation of Holland. She married her husband in 1948 and in 1952 they immigrated to Canada, settling for thirteen years in Calgary. In subsequent years, the family moved to Kingston, Ontario; White Rock, B.C.; and finally Salmon Arm B.C. Later in her life, after the death of her husband, she moved to Tsawwassen, B.C. where she spent her final years close to her children. Mom was always proud that she was one of the first women in her generation to go to a senior high school. After her marriage she raised her family and supported her husband as he built his general practice. Once her children were older, she would often accompany him on late-night house calls. She loved gardening, sewing, reading and shopping. Her war years had made her a frugal person, who loved Regal catalogue shopping because you could “buy so much, for so little”.  During her years in Salmon Arm, she was a member of the congregation of St Andrew’s Presbyterian Church. She enjoyed driving friends to Sunday services and in particular loved the Thursday morning bible studies. When she moved to Tsawwassen, she missed those bible studies almost as much as she missed square dancing in the Shuswap when our father was still alive. However, perhaps the most defining event of her life was the WWII liberation of Holland by soldiers of the Canadian Army -- an event which she never forgot; always honored; and  which shaped the journey of her life in so many different ways. Mom never missed attending a Remembrance Day ceremony where she could honour those vets that gave her and her home country their freedom. Nolly would proudly fly the Canadian flag every Canada Day, a more devoted patriot you would never find. Mom is now going back to Salmon Arm to rest with our father.  If you wish a personal goodbye there will be a viewing for Nolly from 11am-12pm at the funeral home. A memorial and tea will be held from 3:00 to 5:00 pm, Sunday November 5, 2017. Location for both is the Bowers Funeral Home, 440 - 10th Street S.W. in Salmon Arm, B.C. All friends and acquaintances are welcome. Online condolences may be sent to the family through Nolly’s obituary at  www. bowersfuneralservice.com.

Remembering Loved Ones SVEND NELS PETER WILSON February 19, 1922 – September 27, 2017 With saddened hearts the children of Svend Wilson announce his sudden passing on September 29, 2017 in Salmon Arm, BC. He was 95 years old. Left to mourn are his children; Gary Wilson (Heather), Roger Wilson (Brenda), Sandra Unger (Courie) and Marla Walker (Harold). He is also survived by many grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Dad was born in Wayne, Alberta to Nels and Ingaborg Wilson. He was one of five sons born to them. Dad met and married the love of his life Martha “Hazel� Lawrence. He and mom were married for 74 years. Mom passed away on June 15 of this year and dad went to join her in heaven just 31/2 months later. Dad was a grand-master of all things mechanical. There wasn’t anything he couldn’t figure out, build or fix. We will miss his help, wisdom and advice so very much. He was a man’s man but underneath he had the most giving heart. He led a life helping others and never expected anything in return. Dad was pre-deceased by his loving wife, Hazel, his mom and dad, brother “Big� Ove, brother Ingvard and his wife Stella, brother ‘Little� Ove (Della), brother Jens and his wife Laura, brother-in-law Ralph Hartwick and his wife Inez, brother-in-law Johnny Bullock (Helen) and his son-in-law Courie Unger (Sandra). A Celebration of Life was held on Saturday, October 28, 2017 at 1 pm at Cedar Heights Hall, 2316 Lakeview Drive, Blind Bay, BC. Flowers gratefully declined.
