Teen had big heart, ‘fiery’ soul erin Christie Black Press

For those who knew Traci Genereaux, the world will never be the same. Human remains found on a farm in Silver Creek were confirmed to be those of the Vernon teen, who was last heard from May 29 and reported missing June 9. “Many spent countless hours searching for her, praying for her, and doing everything within their power to bring her home. Yet, this didn’t end the way we wanted,” Pastor Dave Bootsma told the crowd of approximately 60 friends and family members gathered at the Upper Room Mission Tuesday afternoon to remember the 18-yearold Vernon woman.

The ceremony, organized by the mission’s staff at the request of Genereaux’s grieving family, was also attended by two RCMP officers and several frontline workers. Members of the media were allowed to attend but asked not record or take photos, at the request of the family. “Traci loved animals, and especially ducks,” Bootsma read in his eulogy. “She had the biggest heart. She had so much love to give to anybody…… While living on the street, she often told her grandmother she didn’t understand why people took her things — she would have shared if only they’d asked,” BootsTraci Genereaux was remembered at a service on Tuesday, Nov. 21 at the Upper Continued on A2 Room Mission in Vernon.

Traci Genereaux’s remains found on Silver Creek farm, police investigation continues Continued from A1 ma continued, before inviting others to share their memories of the “feisty tomboy.” “Traci was too young, too bright, had too much potential for her life to end in such a tragic way,” said Bootsma. “It’s not right. It’s not Ok.” Born in Vernon in 1998, the “fiery,” 4 ft 11 red-head was remembered as “loud, quick-witted and funny.” “She had the best sense of humour of anyone I know,” one ‘close friend’ who asked not to be named, recalled at the beginning of the 35-minute celebration of life. “Even at her worst,

she always made sure everyone around her was OK.” Though she never got a chance to complete her formal education, one of Genereaux’s favourite teachers, Bob Oldfield said she liked school. Oldfield, a former vice-principal at Ellison Elementary School, said he taught the young girl poetry when she was in Grade 7, and remembered her as a child with striking emotional depth. “She had a real grasp on emotional cause and effect,” the now retired administrator recalled. “She had a depth of understanding of what was around her, and she found beauty in everything.”

Traci Genereaux Oldfield’s sentiments were echoed by Lisa Anderson, executive director of the Upper Room Mission, who met Genereaux at the

URM three years ago. Though, like any teen, Anderson said Genereaux had her “sassy” moments, she ultimately viewed her

as vulnerable. “She seemed really fragile, like someone you just want to take home with you and love.”

Fairfield Inn & Suites Marriott applies to rezone parcel. Martha Wickett Salmon Arm Observer

A new hotel will be opening its doors in Salmon Arm in 2019, if all goes according to plan. Hollypark Hotels Corporation has announced that Marriott International has approved its plans to build a $15.5 million dollar Fairfield Inn & Suites hotel at 790-16th St. NE, across from Salmon Arm Secondary’s Jackson campus. The 1.8-acre parcel was previously owned by the Turner family, pioneers in the region’s apple-growing industry. “We purchased the land directly from the Turner family, who have owned the land for more than 120 years, so we look forward to recognizing the property’s origins,” stated Sam Dhillon, chief executive officer of Hollypark, which will construct and own the hotel to be operated under a franchise agreement with Marriott International. Hollypark has applied for a rezoning and development permit with the city. The zoning is to be amended from R-1, single family residential, to C-6, tourist/ recreation commercial zone. The new zoning is in keeping with the city’s official community plan. First and second readings of the rezoning application will take place at council’s next meeting, Nov. 27 in Canoe. A public hearing will be held on Dec. 11 in council chambers in Salmon Arm. Construction of the six-storey, 95-room hotel is set to begin in 2018 with completion slated for 2019. The project is ex-

Dhillon says his company strongly believes in supporting communities by utilizing local contractors and suppliers where possible. “This significant investment by Hollypark Hotels Corporation will not only create new employment opportunities in our community, it will also support the ongoing expansion of Salmon Arm’s tourism economy,” remarked Bill Laird, chair of the Salmon Arm Economic Development Society. “Salmon Arm Economic Development

pected to create 75 construction jobs, up to 30 permanent hotel jobs once open, and contribute upwards of $175,000 of additional tax revenue to the city every year. “We’re excited to invest in a growing community like Salmon Arm,” Dhillon stated. “Tourism in the region is thriving and there’s a real sense of optimism about the future of this city. We hope that our investment and confidence in the market will attract further investment to the area.”

Society is pleased to work with Hollypark as they progress towards the opening of their Fairfield Inn and Suites.” Clint Gavel, director of design and construction for Hollypark, expressed accolades for Salmon Arm: “Staff at the city and the economic development society have been incredibly supportive of the project, which is one of the reasons we’ve decided to break ground in 2018, pushing it ahead of some of our other projects.”

Fundraiser for cancer battle Lachlan Labere Eagle Valley News

Sicamous is once again pulling together to care for their own. A community fundraising dinner and auction for Darren Wilby and his family is being held at Moose Mulligan’s from 6:30 to 1 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 2. Wilby has been battling cancer for eight years and his wife, Nyla, has recently taken leave from her nursing career as he now requires fulltime care. “The cancer is getting worse and bigger,” said Nyla’s sister Rebekah Nicholson who has helped coordinate the upcoming event. “He’s on so much medication and stuff like that, the bills are starting to rack up, especially since he hasn’t been working for so long. And now she’s taking a leave… “They’ve got six kids, two of them are over 19 but she’s still helping them out and they’re struggling and it’s probably even more

stress with the younger kids.” Nicholson describes Darren as a fighter who is also humble and does not like asking for help. She refers to Nyla as “Wonder Woman.” “She inspired me to become a nurse. We’re both nurses…,” said Nicholson. “She does everything. She’ll take all her kids to dance classes, and bake them cookies and cakes for their birthdays. With all of this, it’s starting to show – she really needs a break.” While the Wilby’s live in Vernon, Darren grew up in Sicamous, and Nicholson said the community is coming through for him again. “It’s always kind of been his home and it’s great to see the community sort of band together around him,” said Nicholson. “With this fundraiser, we’ve already got quite a bit of support with donations for the silent auction and stuff like that. It’s kind of encouraging. “Every little bit helps.



Pauline thought her twins were perfect until she realized they were dealing with developmental challenges. Thanks to your support and a local child development program, Pauline got the help her kids needed, and the twins are now thriving at school. PHOTO CONTRIBUTED

A dinner, dance and silent auction fundraiser for Darren and Nyla Wilby takes place this weekend at Moose Mulligan’s in Sicamous. The event is to help the Wilbys as Darren continues his battle against cancer. The NHL has donated some jerseys which is really nice for the silent auction. Moose Mulligans is donating the food for the event and Shoeswap, the band, they’re doing that.” Also up for auction are houseboat trips from Twin Anchors and Waterway Houseboats and many more items donated by local businesses. Nicholson said that despite his health, Darren is determined to attend the event. Tickets for the event, $20, which include beef

on a bun and live music, are available at the Sicamous Loonie Toonie and More store and at the door. Tickets can also be purchased by contacting Neil Healey at wheel–19@hotmail. com. Healey is also accepting donations for the silent auction as well as for the family. Donations for the family can also be made via a Darren Wibly page on gofundme.

Fines for over-fishing

It was an expensive fishing trip for an Okanagan man this weekend. The man was caught over-fishing rainbow trout on Saturday at Gardom Lake, between Enderby and Salmon Arm after a concerned angler called in a tip to the Conservation Officer Service’s Report All Poachers and Polluter tip line. According to B.C. Conservation Service, one man in a group of three fishermen on board had more than six times the legal limit for the fish. Officers found 19 rainbow trout on the man’s boat – the legal limit is two. The man who caught the majority of the fish was fined $1,100 and charged under the British Columbia Sport

Internet rife with scammers

In this era of technological advancement, and digital correspondence, there is never a shortage of scams floating around cyberspace. We receive them in our in-box on a daily basis, and have become adept at spotting them. For many, however, the realistic premise and circumstances surrounding many scams pull in victims before those being taken advantage of even realize what is happening. Sadly, the hunters often prey on the elderly - we suspect for a couple of reasons. Not only are the elderly generally less cognizant when it comes to the digital universe, but, perhaps even more so, they are being targeted because they are too trusting in people. We get calls, emails and visits from seniors on a nearly-weekly basis, asking us to post another warning about the latest scam. There are a couple of tips to follow that can help avoid a financial hit. First and foremost, if it sounds too good to be true, it generally is. When it comes to emails involving the Canada Revenue Agency, this is an easy one to debunk: The CRA does not use email. In what is likely an act of self-preservation, the CRA relies on good old Canada Post for its initial contact. All these emails request you click on an accompanying link. Don’t ever click on that link. If you still think it’s genuine, reply to the email itself. It will almost always bounce back to you. The best advice we can give is to ramp up your skepticism. It’s a sad reality in today’s world. -Comox Valley Record

Not-so-secret life of ralph Kernaghan the great outdoors James Murray He was certainly a tall fellow – long-legged, lean and lanky with a smooth, determined stride – not the sort of person you’d want to have to walk along beside while trying to carry on a conversation. Then again, Ralph Kernaghan was also the kind of guy who would stop and actually take the time to talk to you. I know he certainly liked to talk about fishing. I think, more than anything else, he simply liked just sitting out in his boat on one of his secret lakes somewhere, casting a line. I first met Ralph about 25 years ago at a meeting of the Shuswap Fly Fishers. He was one of the guys that showed up to that first meeting and while he never really seemed to be into all the new, high-tech fishing gear, he was a pretty darned good fly tier – nothing fancy, just the kind of flies that catch fish. I remember one time he gave the club a talk about Jimmy Lake, complete with a map showing the depth and structure of the lake.

His presentation was precise and informative, almost military in manner. Not a surprise when you consider that he spent 22 years in the Canadian military, retiring with the rank of captain. We all paid close attention and in the end everyone felt they had gained a pretty good insight into fishing for rainbows that could be moody up at Jimmy. What I remember the most though about his presentation was the one thing that he inadvertently left out. He had gone on in great detail about structure and insect hatches and when specific hatches were most likely to come off. He even recommended a few patterns that were almost sure to catch fish. But he never actually went so far as to say what patterns he used – a small point but one that didn’t escape my notice. Like I said, Ralph was a consummate fly tier, more than willing to discuss fly patterns and materials, but he was a lot more secretive when it came to actually showing you the flies that were inside of his

fly boxes – the ones that caught fish. Ralph could be equally secretive about the names of the lakes where he liked to fish. Having said that, once you got to know him and he got to know you a bit better, he would eventually come around to sharing some of his secrets – at least about his second-favourite lake. While I admired and respected Ralph, I never had the opportunity to go fishing with him. Ralph went on some of the club fish-outs, the ones that I was never able to attend because I had to work on weekends for the paper, and it was in my capacity as photographer/reporter for the paper that I took a fair number of photos of Ralph up at Larch Hills. Ralph loved competitive cross-county skiing as much as he loved fishing. He won in his age category quite a few times at the Reino Keski Salmi Loppet. Not that he didn’t have an unfair advantage with those long legs of his. Another one of Ralph’s passions was camping with his family – to be more precise, spending time with his wife and five children. He would pack them, the gear and their great, big canvas tent into the car and head

off for a provincial campground somewhere. Being in the military and over time being posted from one coast to the other, Ralph and his family saw a lot of campgrounds – and a lot of the country. I can only imagine the military precision with which space was allotted in the car and the patience required to keep five kids in check. It’s the small things about camping together as a family, the sound of the rain falling on the tent, the meals eaten together over a Coleman stove and the just being free to wander in the woods that stay with you for ever. Ralph’s family was lucky. Over the course of a lifetime, a person touches the lives of the people around them. Ralph passed away a couple of weeks ago at the age of 89-years-old. I know he touched the lives of many people. Quite simply, he enjoyed people and people enjoyed him. While I was saddened to hear of his passing, I am glad that I got to know him. His family has asked that when people think of Ralph, they think of him fishing. I will. I only wish I had gotten the chance to have had one good look in his fly boxes – to see his flies – the ones that caught fish.

Significant environmentalists take advantage of followers I have just finished reading an amazing book, entitled, The Invention of Nature: Alexander von Humboldt’s New World. He was the founder, the great grandfather, if you will, of the environmental movement. He influenced people into the 21st century, even though he died in 1859. What is interesting

is that all the significant environmentalists, from the 1700s to the middle of the 1900s, spent much of their lives living in nature, walking forests and plains, gathering flora and fauna, climbing mountains and studying nature. They eschewed even horse and buggy travel. And most of them lived on the verge of

Make sure to drive safely this snow season With winter upon us, I feel drivers need to be reminded of what they can do to reduce the risk of an accident. While driving my wife to work on the first snowfall of the year, I could not believe how many vehicles did not have lights on, did not signal, changed lanes abruptly and the list could go on and on. People don’t seem to know their newer vehicles either. Just because you have daytime running lights does not mean your tail lights are on. This was all happening in the middle of heavy

rain and snow at 7:45 a.m. I followed a new SUV with no lights on the back, so when l pulled up beside the vehicle, I informed them about the issue, only to be told, “I have them on automatic.” With this nice safety option, you still need, before you go on the road, to check and make sure they are functioning properly. We are all trying to get to a destination on time. However, let’s do it in the safest manner with just a little common sense. Terry Davies

bankruptcy. In contrast, today’s significant environmentalists are multi-millionaires, they live in palatial mansions, and fly around in carbon-spewing planes to visit oil exploration sites and dam construction sites. Al Gore is a millionaire, David Suzuki is a millionaire, all the

protesting movie stars are millionaires. What does this tell us about what has happened to the environmental movement? These people have suckered ordinary folks into giving them millions for their foundations so they can live lavishly. We’ve come a long way since 1770.

Brewers create anti-fascist ale Barb Brouwer Salmon Arm Observer

The fight against fascism and racism is being brewed into a beer. On Nov. 22, owners of Kelowna’s Boundary Brewing and Red Collar Brewing in Kamloops collaborated with Crannog Ales in Sorrento to brew a Not For Nazis Nut Brown Ale, which will be available in mid-December. On Aug. 13, one person died and 19 were hurt when a speeding car slammed into a throng of counter protesters in Charlottesville, Va. where a “Unite the Right” rally of white nationalist and other rightwing groups had been scheduled to take place. In response to that event, Oliver Glaser, owner of Kelowna’s Boundary Brewing, put up an anti-fascist flag in his tasting room and posted the move to Facebook. “About a week later, Glaser began receiving abusive commentary and death threats,” says Crannog Ales co-owner Rebecca Kneen of some of the social media responses. “People were threatening to burn down his building and then he started getting phone calls of a similar nature.” Concerned about the safety of his children, who often go to the brewery after school, Glaser moved the flag from the tasting room to the brew house. “When we knew what was going on, we posted, saying this is very weird because we’ve had the same flag up for five years,” says Kneen. “We put it up because we have been anti-fascist activists for a very long time. We didn’t see any reason why we shouldn’t – have the flag, like the flag, put it up!” The flag flew at Crannog Ales and Left Fields Farm in

Sorrento until Kneen and partner Brian MacIsaac showed their support for Glaser by posting a photo of their flag to social media. “Whereupon, we did discover where people are,” Kneen says, noting support from people in the B.C. Interior has been positive. “The negative feedback, most of which was highly illiterate and unbelievably ignorant, included that we are supporting domestic terrorism and that we are indeed fascist, which is clearly nonsense.” Kneen says none of the commentary has been specific enough for them to be alarmed about. “Brian says somebody mouthing off on Facebook is not an issue, especially when they live in Indiana.”

Organizations work as one in South Shuswap Barb Brouwer Salmon Arm Observer

Re p r e s e n t at i v e s of more than 40 non-profit organizations serving the South Shuswap attended a strategic planning and granting evening co-hosted by the Columbia Shuswap Regional District and the Arts Council for the South Shuswap.

The evening was facilitated by CSRD Electoral Area C Director Paul Demenok. Guest speakers included Gary Brooke and Melany Dyer, both board members of the Shuswap Community Foundation, who shared the benefits of opening an endowment fund with the foundation

in order to assist each organization towards building financial sustainability. On behalf of the Arts Council For the South Shuswap, Karen Brown encouraged each organization to share its list of events for 2018 so that a community calendar could be generated. “Those who have

visited the new Visitor Information Kiosks, located at various sites in the South Shuswap, will see a full panel dedicated to a calendar of events for the year, therefore having the discussion now will allow for the panels to be designed, printed and installed in early 2018,” said Brown. “This event’s

exercise also assists in resolving conflicting dates so that all organizations can support and cross-promote each other’s activities.” With a limited audience, especially during the winter months in the region, it is vital that everyone is aware of what the other is doing to ensure atten-

dance and success at each event, she added. As part of the strategic planning, a discussion ensued regarding the development of a centralized community calendar with a potential option of centralizing event ticket sales and registration for area programming. The attendees also spoke of the benefits

of the organizations meeting two to three times a year to discuss hurdles, remedies, common issues and future initiatives. To round off the evening’s agenda, Demenok spoke with all non-profit organizations about the importance of submitting their CSRD grant-inaid needs early.

Author triumphs over abuse, trauma A Blind Bay author has not only survived abuse and trauma, she’s hoping her new book will help others learn to heal and forgive. Known simply as Keri because she still requires protection, Unfinished: A Personal Journey of Healing, Self-Discovery and Resilience, took five years to write. Keri, who wrote the book using the pseudonym Isana, which means tenacious and strong-willed, suffered many years of emotional and physical abuse. It began when she was a child and was sexually abused by family members and family friends. The horror of that resulted in a lack of self-worth and two abusive marriages. Perhaps the most disappointing abuse came from people in authority when she joined a municipal police force in northern Ontario. “When I was at police college, they made you think you’d have

Known to readers as Isana, the Blind Bay author has written a book in which she hopes to inspire other women to triumph over the trauma caused by abuse. all the support and camaraderie in the world; you were given the impression this is the way it would be,” she says. “It was, in fact, the absolute opposite. There were different rules for men and women, no consistency, and that was the real shocker.” She sought counselling in the 1990s while she continued to work on the force at the mercy of her abusers. One dramatic incident, which is described in the book, left her bat-

tling PTSD and resulted in four years of hell trying to reach some kind of a resolution. Twelve weeks of indepth counselling and introspection followed and led to her book, which she says is the main thing that brought her to a place of being able to forgive. While her own story is exceedingly painful, Keri is adamant it is only a small part of the book, not the main focus. “I wanted this book

to be a help to other people who have suffered domestic, sexual, all kinds of abuse, and triumph and come out whole,” she says. “That’s what I want the message to be. I want the book to give hope.” Like Isana, Keri has triumphed over remarkable odds, has found peace and is happily married to a retired police officer who was on the force for 30 years. She calls him her biggest supporter. Unable to promote

her book in Ontario because of safety concerns, Keri is now happy to share her story of triumph as a potential road map for others. Unfinished: A Personal Journey of Healing, Self-discovery and Resilience is available at Hidden Gems Bookstore in Salmon Arm and at It’s All Good Bulk & Health Food Plus in Blind Bay.

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.

Celebrating a decade of wellness BUSINESS SpotlIght Leah Blain Namaste Yoga and Wellness Centre is celebrating its 10th anniversary this weekend. On Saturday, November 25 there is a 9:30 a.m. yoga practice, an 11:30 a.m. meditation practice, and some refreshments and cake at noon. The classes are free but you need to preregister. “When we opened in 2007 it was a first for our city,” says owner Nancy Whitticase. “There was no other studio in Salmon Arm, it was ground-breaking for the Shuswap. It planted the seed of eastern ways.” They are still in the same location, 310 Hudson Ave (right beside the post office), on the second floor, but a lot has changed over the past decade. “The biggest change is that we’ve started doing yoga teacher training. We’re the only school between Calgary and Vancouver. I’ve had students travel from the Kootenays and Kelowna.”

Made Fresh Daily

Nancy says the meditation classes have grown a lot in the past decade, as well as specialty classes, like the ‘Old Guy yoga class.’ To contact them phone or text 8323647or email

SASCU nominations

The call for nominations is now open for three 3-year positions and one 2-year position on the SASCU Board of Directors. Up for re-election this year are incumbent directors Barry Johnson, John Schlosar and Charlotte Sutherland. “This is a great opportunity for members to get directly involved in the direction of their Credit Union,” says Frank Popien, SASCU Board Director and Nominating Committee Chair. The nomination process is running earlier than in past years so members have more time to participate. The elections will still take place in the spring. Eligibility requirements include being a SASCU Credit Union member in good standing since January 2, 2017. Nominees are sought

from throughout the Shuswap.

Take the survey

The BC Chamber is looking to find out what is on BC’s mind. In their province-wide collective perspective survey last year they heard from 1,200 businesses of all sizes representing all sectors of the economy, and from all regions of the province. From the 2016 survey the BC Chamber discovered a strong confidence among the business community in both the current health of their businesses and their future outlook on the economy. This year, they are looking to see if anything has changed. Insights gathered from this survey feed directly into the BC Chamber’s advocacy efforts.

Curcumin – cure for inflammation FAMILY CHIROPRACTIC Dr. Warren Gage In 2017, inflammation is now known to be a significant health challenge not only in relation to joint and spinal problems such as arthritis, but it is plays a large role in cancer, brain degeneration, and cardiovascular health. Countless millions (if not billions) of dollars have been spent researching the causes and effects of inflammation and the different ways to reduce or prevent it. Obviously a lot of these funds have proven there are numerous pharmacological ways to reduce

inflammation, but it is also now known that there are many natural and dietary ways to reduce and prevent inflammation. Simple activities like regular exercise, quitting smoking and drinking alcohol and eating a clean diet go a long ways in reducing levels of inflammation in the body. There are also dietary supplements that will further reduce inflammation in the body. This week I would like to discuss the benefits of supplementing curcumin into your diet. Curcumin is the

bright orange colored part from the turmeric root and is quickly becoming one of the most researched botanicals on the planet due to it’s anti-inflammatory and antioxidant traits. Research is showing that it has an effect on the nucleus of cells that helps regulate the inflammatory response in the body. Studies like the one published in 2010 in the Journal of Alternative Medicine found “Curcumin supplementation can result in up to a 60% reduction in pain and a 73% reduction in joint stiffness”. A challenge that has also been discovered concerning curcumin is that when it is taken as a supplement it is not easily absorbed. This means that if you

are purchasing regular curcumin, most of it is not able to leave the gut and enter the blood stream where it is needed. However, there now is a way to assist the body to more easily absorb curcumin so that it can produce maximal benefits. A supplement brand called Thorne has patented a process where the curcumin is bound to something called phosphatidylcholine - which is one of the main elements that make up all cell membranes. In other words, it is bonded to a substance that significantly improves the absorbability of the curcumin thus aiding it to enter the cells of the body where it is required. Multiple studies done to measure the absorp-

tion of curcumin have shown that Thorne’s preparations lead to 29% more curcumin entering the cells versus consuming standard 95% curcumin extract. While high quality supplements are not cheap to buy, when they absorb significantly better than their competition, it’s worth the investment. We carry Thorne supplements in our office, and keep their curcumin product called Meriva-SR in stock as this is a supplement that all people can benefit from taking on a regular basis. Dr. Warren Gage is a family wellness Chiropractor who can be reached at Harbourfront Family Chiropractic at (250) 803-0224.

Seven ways to save on food this winter Food is a necessity and an expense that simply cannot be avoided. A 2012 Gallup poll found that Americans reported spending $151 on food per week. Around one in 10 said they spent $300 or more per week, and those with higher incomes tend to spend more on weekly food bills than people who earn less. Compounding high food bills is the fact that people tend to waste food. According to the American Chemistry Council, roughly 80 billion pounds of food are thrown out every year in the United States. Brit-

ons throw away around seven million tons of food and drink per year, says BBC Good Food. Saving money on food may seem challenging, but it doesn’t have to be. With some smart strategies, individuals can reduce their food budgets and still have enough to eat. 1. Store food properly. Pay attention to the correct ways to store food, including promptly refrigerating or freezing items to prevent spoiling. 2. Do your own work. Prepackaged, presliced, or preportioned foods take longer for manufacturers to prepare, and

those costs are passed on to consumers. Separating foods oneself and putting them into manageable portions may take a little time, but the savings for consumers could be considerable. 3. Buy in bulk when it makes sense. Bulk warehouse stores can make it easier to stock up on essentials. But they also can entice people to buy items they really do not need. Consumers should only purchase items that make fiscal sense or ones that cannot be purchased elsewhere for less. Always compare the price per weight or per unit when shopping.

4. Stock up on staples. Be on the lookout for sales on items used frequently, particularly staples that can be stored away. Watch for low prices on coffee, oils and canned goods, stocking up when such items go on sale. 5. Embrace dried and canned beans. Beans offer filling fiber and protein for relatively little cost. They also can be added to meat or vegetable recipes to bulk up dishes. 6. Plan ahead. Planning ahead can save big bucks. Peruse sales before leaving the house and spend time visiting

a few different stores to save more money. Make use of store coupon apps to preload savings that can be used at checkout. 7. Explore frugal recipes. Skipping meat or other expensive items once in awhile can help reduce food bills. Save expensive items for treats, which can make you appreciate them that much more. The same concept can be used for dining out. It is relatively easy to save money on the cost of food when consumers make a commitment to being more frugal. MM17C514

Anything Is Possible

Cutting salt good for your health HealtHy bites Serena Caner Something happened in our hospitals last year: the disappearance of salt packages on your tray. As part of a Ministry of Health initiative to reduce sodium in our health care facilities, hospital diets are trying to remain below the 2,300 mg recommendation. And while I appreciate the idea, perhaps our acutely ill and elderly are not the ones we should have

chosen to focus our policies on. Let’s just say I have spent a lot of time dealing with requests for salt. The average Canadian consumes 3,400 mg of sodium daily, more than twice the required amount. While many of us no longer salt our food at the table, the salt is already in our food. Salt is used to increase the flavour and shelf-life of processed and packaged

foods, and is quite difficult to avoid. You will have an easier time meeting the guideline if you cook fresh ingredients than if you rely on ready-made foods. While we associate salt with chips, fast food and soups, bread products are actually the largest contributor of salt to the Canadian diet. A flour tortilla has 450 mg sodium before you add cheese, salsa or any seasoned meat or beans. The problem with too much salt is that it significantly increases your risk of stroke and cardiovascular

disease. Furthermore, it is associated with high blood pressure, reduced bone health and increased severity of asthma. Health Canada estimated that if the average sodium intake were cut in half, the number of people diagnosed with high blood pressure would decrease by 30 per cent. So what are the best ways to limit your salt intake? Cook more meals from scratch (eat less processed and packaged foods). Read the nutrition facts label on your food – foods that

have 20 per cent DV or more per serving are considered “high sodium” Rinse foods canned with sodium (beans, vegetables, meat) Experiment with other spices and fresh herbs. Practice portion control (i.e. eat less!). Most foods can be enjoyed in moderation.

A District of Sicamous decision to withdraw from the regional district’s economic development service as of Jan. 1, 2018 did not sit well with Columbia Shuswap Regional District staff and directors. The district announced their withdrawal as a participant from ‘Economic Development (Electoral Areas C, D, E and F) Extended Service Bylaw No. 5268 in a Nov. 9 resolution. Instead, the district will launch the Sicamous Development Corporation (2018) that will provide economic development services directly to the district. “Given the lateness, staff thinks the district should make provisions for 2018 for whatever items that are being pursued,” said CSRD chief executive officer Charles Hamilton. “It’s a bit troubling to be right in the middle of budget considerations and have the funding completely withdrawn. It should be something that was presented to (CSRD) economic de-

velopment committee.” But Sicamous Mayor Terry Rysz told directors at the Nov. 16 CSRD board meeting in Salmon Arm that substantial research has been done and the withdrawal was discussed at in-camera meetings for the past several years. “We also realize the timing is not great, so if we have to pay another year into it, then that’s fine,” said Rysz. “I’m glad to hear that; we just completed a regional economic development plan which included Sicamous,” said Electoral Area C South Shuswap director Paul Demenok. “This is really bad timing. Do we now leave Sicamous out?” Rysz pointed out he was a conduit for a decision made by district council. He explained district’s new development corporation will be comprised of the town manager, chief financial officer and four other members. “We have five different projects on the go right now. We purchased a new medical clinic that will be managed by

New health program on deck

Local paramedics to begin delivering program. Sicamous seniors living with chronic conditions will soon have the support of a community paramedic visiting them in their homes on a regular basis. Part of BC Emergency Health Services’ (BCEHS) new community paramedicine program, this service is being rolled out in rural and remove communities throughout B.C. Paramedics Kathy Crandlemire and Suzie Cameron are currently training to deliver the program in Sicamous. Crandlemire expects to be done by Dec. 15, with the program to beginning the following week. Crandlemire has lived in Sicamous for 36 years and considers herself a “hometown paramedic.” She has been with a BCEHS paramedic for 22 years, and has served

as unit chief with the Sicamous ambulance station for 14 years. “I am very excited to be a part of this new initiative,” says Crandlemire, “and consider it a privilege to be able to expand my career as a community paramedic and continue to work and serve the residents of Sicamous. Cameron began her career as a paramedic in Revelstoke and has been with the BCEHS for almost 26 years. Although she has only lived in Sicamous for a year, she has worked out of the Sicamous station for seven years and knows the community, as here mother was a resident for 22 years. “I have always felt like a community paramedic from working smaller communities pretty much my whole career,” says Cameron. “Now

B.C. Forests Minister Doug Donaldson is back from his first wood industry trade mission to China and Japan, an annual journey I was fortunate to go on last year. Nanjing is the commercial centre of Jiangsu province, where the Chinese central government has ordered a pilot project to phase in wood and engineered wood, starting with roof trusses and pre-fabricated infill walls for concrete buildings. They’re working with B.C.-developed wood construction because “it’s energy efficient, it’s green, it’s light, it’s fast,” says Rick Jeffery, chair of the national industry group Canada Wood and a veteran of Asia trade. This is important in a vast country that is not only choked with pollution, it’s running low on limestone, a key component of concrete. Based on 2016 rates of consumption, China is using as much concrete in two years as the U.S. would in a century, and that’s with their growth slowed from its peak One of the pictures

sent back by B.C. government staff shows Donaldson attending a meeting of the Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development (MOHURD) for Jiangsu, with dozens of people crowded around a long boardroom table. The province’s population is approaching 79 million. Donaldson said once the government decides, “things happen quickly in China.” Donaldson noted that President Xi Jinping, in his recent sweeping address to the 19th Congress of the Communist Party of China, emphasized clean, pre-fabricated building systems. Things don’t happen quickly in wood industry talks with the U.S., where the central government isn’t ruled by dictators but by its lumber industry lobby. Using the same subsidy accusations that have failed repeatedly in international trade rulings, the U.S. has forced Canadian softwood producers to fork over $500 million in countervailing and anti-dumping duties since last spring alone.

This American shakedown of Canada has been going on for decades. In the “managed trade” arrangement that ran from 2006 to 2015, Canadian lumber mills paid punitive duties averaging about 11 per cent. Now, after a preliminary ruling was generously scaled back by the U.S. Department of Commerce, our producers are paying about 20 per cent, directly into the pockets of U.S. lumber barons. The real purpose of this U.S. industry trade

bullying is to push up the price of their products. The good news for B.C. is that the price is high enough that sales to the U.S. are easily covering the cost of duties. That’s being passed on to U.S. builders and homeowners. One of these days, Trump and his team of trade geniuses may figure this out and begin to consider free trade in lumber. Until then, Canada and B.C. are well advised to continue with the Asian market.

Citizens, be silent no more Mayor’s report Nancy Cooper Please join us on Dec. 6 at the Salmon Arm Campus of Okanagan College for events that inclulde a candlelight vigil remembering and honouring women who have suffered from abuse and violence. So what is violence against women? The United Nations Declaration on the Elimination of Violence Against Women defines violence against women as “any act of gender-based violence that results in, or is likely to result in, physical, sexual or psychological harm or suffering to women, including threats of such acts, coercion or arbitrary deprivation of liberty, whether occurring in public or in private life” (UN 1993). According to the Canadian Women’s Federation, violence against women happens in all cultures and

religions, in all ethnic and racial communities, at every age, and in every income group; however, some women are especially at risk. Aboriginal women are 2.5 times more likely to be victims of violence than non-Aboriginal women. Aboriginal women (First Nations, Inuit and Métis) are six times more likely to be killed than non-Aboriginal women. Last spring, I walked with our First Nations neighbours in their 10 km trek to bring awareness to the missing and murdered women and girls in our area. As we walked they remembered and prayed for Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women and Girls as well as all others. As we walked, they talked and I listened with ever deepening sadness as they recounted their memories of abuse.

I heard their resolve to stay silent no longer, to speak up and speak out for themselves and women of all cultures and races who have suffered. One of the toughest parts of listening and understanding is actually moving towards action. We can stay silent no longer! I know it is difficult to grapple with the reality that so many women have suffered and been murdered for no reason except that they are women. We really don’t want to believe it, but it’s happening all too often. We also need to understand that violence against women affects the entire family. Many women have never spoken about the violence they suffered and neither have their children. They have remained silent. The hurt and shame is often buried deeply inside a woman or child that has witnessed or suffered abuse and violence. As though somehow, the abuse and violence was their fault. I am here to say when it comes to

abuse against women it is time to be silent no more. Stand up and speak up for women and families. Stop the violence against women. Please join the events at Okanagan College on December 6 beginning at 3 p.m. with the candlelight vigil at 6:30 p.m. Add your voice. Be heard. Stop the Violence against Women.

Community band strikes a Christmas note Barb Brouwer Salmon Arm Observer

It’s not only Santa’s Elves who have been putting in long hours. The Salmon Arm Community Band is hard at work preparing for their annual Christmas season presentation. Director Jim Johnston says he and the 55 musicians have an exciting program planned. As well as the expected songs of the season,

there are energetic, modern concert overtures by young composers who understand well how to write music for large wind ensembles. “These pieces are great fun to play, in part because they showcase the energy provided by the strong percussion section in this band,” Johnston says. “That energy also is expressed in El Gato Montes, a brisk march infused

with Spanish character.” In a contrasting mood, the band will play some well-known J.S. Bach, a waltz by Russian composer Shostakovich and a lovely tone poem celebrating a summer sunrise across a country meadow. The band has not forgotten that even though it is late in the year, 2017 is still Canada’s 150th birthday.

“We’ll once again take listeners back to 1967 with Bobby Gimby’s always popular CA-NADA!” Johnston says. “It will be good to get your voices in shape because the band will also be presenting a selection of audience sing-a-long Christmas carols.” The concert takes place at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 9 at the Nexus at First. Admission is by donation at the door.

Piano prowess recognized Barb Brouwer Salmon Arm Observer

Each year the Shuswap Branch of the Registered Music Teachers recognize their students that have successfully accomplished advanced level piano exams with their prerequisite theoretical exams, Grade 8 to Associate level (ARCT). Royal Conservatory and Conservatory Canada send examiners to the community each year to examine students, providing a valuable comprehensive assessment of musicianship by including repertoire, technical tests, études, ear and sight reading. Each grade requires examinations also in theoretical subjects. Grade 8 is equivalent to Grade 12 school credits and grades above that are considered post-secondary.

Library cuts in the works Tracy Hughes Salmon Arm Observer

Plans to cut back service at the Silver Creek library aren’t sitting well with residents of the small community. The planned changes for the Okanagan Regional Library (ORL) branch in Silver Creek will move from 19 staffing hours per week to 10 hours per week. This means operating hours at the branch will drop from 15 to eight, meaning the reduction of service from three open days to two. “To us in Silver Creek, the library is more than just a building with books. It is a hub in our community, a place where people can go, meet their neighbours, participate in programs, find out information and also get Internet access – many places out here can’t get that at home, so with more and more things being done online, it’s become really important for that,” says Colleen Grieg, president of the Silver Creek Community Association. “It just goes so far beyond books. For example, a woman here, her washing machine broke and she mentioned it to Julie (White, who is the librarian) and

The Silver Creek Library is facing cutbacks to its operating hours. through her connections she was able to find someone who had a washer and get this woman all hooked up, so she could wash her kids’ clothes. That’s the kind of thing the library does for us.” A meeting is planned to discuss the proposed changes on Dec. 5, where Okanagan Regional Library CEO Stephanie Hall will be present to discuss upcoming service level changes at the Silver Creek branch. Hall has met with the community on two other occasions to discuss the future of the branch and obtain feedback from community members. One of the options being considered for the library was a complete closure, as the library system’s research indi-

cated many residents use other libraries, especially the Salmon Arm branch. “But the residents made it clear that they would prefer a reduction in open hours to a closure, citing some residents who are unable to get out to other locations, and the library’s role as a community hub,” says a statement from Michal Utko, communications manager for the ORL. He notes that the reduction in the Silver Creek operating hours, “will bring service levels in line with similar sized ORL communities such as Oyama and Cherryville, and will also help bring costs closer to tax revenues, creating a more stable funding basis for the branch going forward.”

Utko also says part of the problem rests with the provincial government. “Provincial funding for public libraries has been frozen for more than a decade, which amounts to more than a 20 per cent cut when accounting for inflation.” Grieg says she hopes residents will come out to the meeting and make a strong case for why service levels should remain the same. “We are not just going to let this go,” she says. She points out the need to keep children, families and seniors engaged in their community. But the library system didn’t comment on whether the service cuts are final or still up for discussion.

Rough and tumble weekend Two chippy games end with a win and a loss for Heat. SCOTT KOCH CONTRIBUTOR

Conor Webb, down on the ice, somehow gets a piece of the puck as Pat Brady watches it sail through the air and Chase Heat’s Ryan Okino controls Summerland Steam’s Liam McLaren. The Heat downed the Steam by a final score of 4-2. constant reminders of their dislike for each other. Saturday night the 18th saw the Heat in the Little Apple facing the Kelowna Chiefs. The previous evening’s shenanigans were peaceful compared to the multiple clusters of aggression in this ice capades. The Heat brought their normal style but quickly adjusted to the in-your-face, rough-and-ready mayhem displayed by the Chiefs. In the first, the teams exchanged man-advantage tallies, Brady popping in a goal from Bourne and Kolten Moore. The first con-

cluded with Kelowna up 2-1. Roughing after the whistle took centre stage for this 20 minutes. In the second the teams exchanged goals, with Black on the power play from Fournier and Schweizer, keeping it close. Lots of sin-bin activities in this 20-minute stanza with more roughing continuing after the whistle. Moore zigged and zagged on a breakaway to start the third, assisted by Bourne and Cory Loring, but the Chiefs notched a pair for a 5-3 win over Chase. Lots of net-side scrums resulted in dog piles that resulted in players ei-

ther being tossed from the game or sitting in hockey purgatory with teammates. For Chase, Grady Musgrave and Okino will be lost for a game due to suspensions, making the numbers on defence a little sketchy.

Fournier was a force over the weekend, Webb weaved magic in both games with his ability to flash the leather in making save after save to keep his team in both contests. Both veterans and rookies alike have raised their games to a higher level as the regu-

lar season chugs along. Chase is in second overall on the power play at 25.6 per cent, while sitting at seventh on the penalty kill. Bourne continues to lead the KIJHL in scoring with 19 goals, 22 assists for 41 points. Six other Heat personnel reside in the top 50 in scoring. While the Heat are now second in the division, a threeway dog fight between 100 Mile House (29), Chase (28) and Revelstoke (27) continues.

Hit, hack and whack was the overall theme on the hockey front for the past weekend. In a change from the usual high-energy fast and skilled game that is the norm, the Heat adjusted to a grittier style versus two Okanagan foes. Versus the Summerland Steam on Friday the 17th, the fans were entertained at the Art Holding Memorial Arena with a hot and steamy contest. The Okanagan crew got the only counter in the first period. In the second, Kaden Black, shorthanded from Jayce Schweizer and Zachary Fournier, notched it at 1-1. Then the silky smooth Pat Brady from Garret Watson and Brayden Haskell gave Chase the lead. In the third, KIJHL leading scorer Josh “Bourne again” Bourne lasered a power-play goal from Brady and Ryan Okino. Black was back with his second of the game, assisted by Brady and Lucas Smith. Summerland attempted a comeback with a goal, but Conor Webb declared that was enough, stopping 25 of 27 shots fired his way. When the teams weren’t scoring, mayhem ruled the rink as both foes kept the opposition awake with

TNRD investigates effects of wildfires on business A new initiative is underway to address gaps in supports for businesses trying to recover from the 2017 wildfire season. The Thompson-Nicola Regional District (TNRD) has engaged Colin O’Leary as a Community Recovery Manager to assess the impact on businesses in the regional district due to this summer’s devastating wildfire season. O’Leary will head

up a project that will consist of three main components: 1. Actively engaging the business community affected by the 2017 wildfire season in the TNRD through in-person meetings, community engagement sessions and surveys. 2. Quantifying the economic loss in the region, identifying existing resources available and highlighting any gaps in support programs for businesses.

3. Recommending options moving forward to address gaps in support for businesses looking to recover from the 2017 wildfire season. In the coming days, the TNRD will be providing more detailed information about this project, including the steps that will be taken to engage the business community. Businesses that were impacted by the recent wildfires can contact

O’Leary at recovery@ The work being undertaken by the TNRD to support businesses is in addition to other initiatives already underway. It was previously announced that a recovery management resource was put in place to assist residents and property owners in the regional district who were impacted by the wildfires this past summer.

I N P CHATTER at Village Lanes Fun Centre by Calyn Buresh What a crazy busy weekend! We had the pleasure of hosting the house round of the Bowl BC Team Challenge this past Sunday at Village Lanes! We had 32 LOCAL bowling teams (160 Chase Bowlers) competing on Sunday! At the end of the event, we fax the scores away to our head office in Vancouver to see how the teams from Chase match up to the rest of the teams across the province. We received word yesterday that our tiny little bowling centre in a tiny little village had more teams try out for this event than any other bowling centre across British Columbia! This is absolutely incredible. More teams than Vancouver, Prince George, Kelowna, anywhere! Way to go Chase bowlers. The support that we receive from our local bowlers is outstanding. Thank you all so much for continuing to go into these events! Some of our Youth Bowlers also went down to Kamloops on Sunday to compete in the BC Youth Games tournament! A big congratulations to Destiny Behrends, Haylee Nakazawa, Jobe Krause, Ryder Louis and coach, Brandi Nakazawa! The team placed 4th overall, which is great! Good job guys! In other “youth news” our youth bowlers absolutely lit up the lanes on their league day this past Wednesday! The scores were incredible! Danica Morley bowled a 190 game! (her average is only 100!) while Brianna Narcisse bowled her first ever 200 game! Way to go Brianna! And then just when we thought the scores couldn’t get any better, Haylee Nakazawa bowls a 260+ game and Brook Mindel throws a 286 single! Way to go everyone!! In night league news, David Jules bowled a massive 355 on Cash League this past Thursday night! Great bowling everyone! Until next time!

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.

FOOTPRINTS ON THE SANDS OF TIME Tell me not, in mournful numbers, Life is but an empty dream! — For the soul is dead that slumbers, And things are not what they seem. Life is real! Life is earnest! And the grave is not its goal; Dust thou art, to dust returnest, Was not spoken of the soul. Not enjoyment, and not sorrow, Is our destined end or way; But to act, that each to-morrow Find us farther than to-day. Art is long, and Time is fleeting, And our hearts, though stout and brave, Still, like muffled drums, are beating Funeral marches to the grave. Trust no Future, howe’er pleasant! Let the dead Past bury its dead! Act, — act in the living Present! Heart within, and God o’erhead! Lives of great men all remind us We can make our lives sublime, And, departing, leave behind us Footprints on the sands of time; Footprints, that perhaps another, Sailing o’er life’s solemn main, A forlorn and shipwrecked brother, Seeing, shall take heart again. Let us, then, be up and doing, With a heart for any fate; Still achieving, still pursuing, Learn to labor and to wait.

Joyce Marie Varga (nee Faubert) passed peacefully at Hillside Village on Oct 28th, 2017, at the age of 71 years. She was born in High River Alberta to Esther and John Faubert. The family moved to Bowness where she graduated from high school. After high school, she completed the X-ray technician program at Calgary General Hospital and worked in North Vancouver for a year. From there she moved back to High River where she met her first husband, Julius “Sonny” Varga. They started a family in High River, Alberta, with the birth of Michael, then moved to Sicamous, BC, where John and Jeff quickly rounded out the family. After Julius’ untimely death, Joyce stayed in Sicamous raising her children, where she was well known for her excellent cooking, joyous disposition and contagious laughter. She fell in love twice more, first marrying Al Rendle (who passed due to an illness) and then settling down with Don Balas on their farm in Mara as they prepared for retirement. Unfortunately, she suffered a major illness that left her unable to care for herself in 2008 and spent the remainder of her life being cared for in support homes where Don visited almost every day until he passed in 2015. Joyce is survived by her mother Esther Faubert, sister and brother-in-law Jeanette & Brian Lucas, eldest son & daughter-in-law Michael and Fatima Varga, middle son John Varga, and her youngest, Jeff Varga. She was predeceased by her father John Faubert and brother Bill Faubert. A memorial service will be held at the Sicamous Bible Church on November 25, 2017 at 10:30 am with a light lunch served afterwards. An ashspreading ceremony will be held in the spring. Online condolences may be sent to Joyce’s family through her obituary at www.

If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane, I’d walk right up to Heaven and bring you Home again. ROBERT WILLIAM EDWARD MYERS Sept. 10, 1940 - Nov. 1, 2017 It is with great sadness we announce the unexpected passing of Bob. Bob passed the morning of Nov 1, 2017 at home, in his sister’s house. Bob underwent heart surgery in June at St Paul’s Hospital in Vancouver having an artificial valve (TAVI) inserted he was doing exceptionally well and the Doctors were very pleased with his recovery. Bob will be sadly missed by all who knew him. Bob took pride in keeping the streets clean of bottles and cans, and he was always cutting lawns or shoveling snow for people. Bob spent half of his life in Enderby and the other in Salmon Arm. Bob was 77 years young and one of the nicest people you could ever meet. He is survived by his older brother Bert, two younger brothers Harold & Gordon (Yvonne) as well as two sisters Marg and Kay, several nieces &nephews as well as great nieces and nephews. No service at this time as a celebration of life will be held in the spring. Family and friends will be advised as to when, so all can attend.

Marnie and Alan spent five years travelling the country in their 5th wheel before settling for retirement in Salmon Arm. She spent the last few years in the Andover Retirement Residence where she made many friends. A life-long knitter Marnie was most proud of having knit 199 baby sweater sets for hampers given to needy new moms. A tasty farm cook she loved to feed people and at Andover Residence was known for filling the corridor with the smell of her freshly baked bread. She had days of fun with the Crown Jewels and her Out To Lunch Bunch and will be fondly remembered by her friends there. The family extends heartfelt thanks to Dr. Dirk Breugem and his staff at the Maple Tree Clinic as well as to the kind and attentive nurses and other caregivers at Shuswap Lake General Hospital. A future announcement will be made regarding a memorial tea to be held at an as yet unspecified date. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to The Canadian Cancer Society or The BC Endocrine Reseaech Foundation (Diabetes.) Arrangements entrusted to Fischer’s Funeral Services & Crematorium Ltd., 250 8331129. Share condolences and memories of Marnie online through her obituary at www.

Honesty Makes a Difference

We accept all Memorial Society and Pre-Need Funeral Policies Making final arrangements for a loved one is not easy. That’s why compassion goes into everything we do. We are prepared to arrange any special request you may have. BELL, JOHN THOMAS May 3, 1944 – Oct. 24, 2017

My dad noted, after his first week on blood thinners, that Bacardi had started to advertise on television. He was convinced their drop in sales had something to do with the rise in sales in thinners! He loved to make people laugh, his Jeep & his Bacardi. His greatest pride was in providing for his family. Born May 3, 1944 to a family of seven girls and two boys, he was raised on Galiano Isl. where he went to school and lived as a young man. In 1967 he met mom. After three short weeks he asked “Will you marry me?” She asked “Will you teach me how to drive?” He said Yes! And so did she! The moved to Salmon Arm in ’71. Dad worked heavy construction as an Excavator Operator throughout BC and AB. Damns, pipelines and Hwys. If you have ever seen an excavator teetering up off the side of a cliff, that would have been him! During his construction years he made many memories and stories he could tell for hours, especially about those “Irish Boys.” Dad’s “retirement” years were spent close to home working with Barry and Lavern Turner. One of Dad’s proudest “digs” was in ’96 while working on the Duke Point Hwy expansion. He found a fossil aged to be over 73 million years old. This “rock” was taken to Vancouver Island University in Nanaimo and is still there today. Dad was the great great great grandson of Joe Silvey, a whaler, better known as “Portuguese Joe”. Joe was the first Portuguese in Canada to receive British Citizenship in the late 1800’s and opened a pub in “Gastown”. On Brocton Point, a bronze sculpture dubbed “Shore to Shore” has been erected and sits near the site where Joe one had a home. This site today is known as “Stanley Park”. Predeceased by his son Bill in 2003. John will live on through his loving wife and best friend of 50 years Betty, daughter Shannon (Gord) Kosolofski, daughter-in-law Cherie, granddaughter Lexie Bell, grandson Jon Bell, sisters Laura (Tom) Lowery, Athena Tchaikovsky, numerous nieces and nephews who knew they could get away with swearing when Uncle John was around! Dad always made time to lend a hand or a tool. Tell a story or share a joke. His sense of humor was “drier than a popcorn fart” and his endless “one liners” were expected! He loved leaning up against his Jeep contemplating life, talking to himself or his best friend Trevor. In respect to his wishes, cremation has taken place. The family extend their heartfelt thanks to Dr. Pullin, Dr. Azad, Dr. McKinnon, Dr. Weicker, the paramedics, emergency staff, 4th floor staff at SLGH and 6th South at RIH. Much gratitude and respect to Community Nursing; because of your assistance he was able to stay at home until his last day. This was so important to him and I know how much he appreciated you. Dad died as he lived, peacefully and on his own terms. He was a man of dignity and calm determination. If you were lucky enough to receive a handshake from him, you could tell instantly what kind of man he was and it was something you wouldn’t forget. Just like him. R.I.P POP…”We’ll see ya then”.

Salmon Arm Observer/Shuswap Market News


The latest on the outdoor front ShuSwap OuTdOOrS Hank Shelley Recently, the Shuswap region of the BC Wildlife Federation met in Kamloops to mull over the latest happenings pertaining to hunting, fishing, salmon returns and forestry issues. The group consists of reps from Interior fish and game clubs bringing up important issues and where we are heading, affecting hunters, anglers and the general public. Earl Bloom and I represent the local fish and game club. Forestry – When forest companies replant seedlings (plugs/ bare root/plugs are small seedlings, 35 to a pack). In clear cuts, they have to compete with fast-growing elder and birch. These deciduous grow quickly.

Thinning and spacing is required to generate healthy conifers. Currently, there are about 700,000 hectares needing silviculture work in the province. To save money and time in the Prince George forest district, spraying herbicide (Round-up) over plantations with a helicopter has happened. This will be happening soon in the Kamloops forest district. It is not a proper management tool. Moose, deer, elk, depend on leafy plants, vegetation and trees for life and winter survival. Juvenile spacing (thinning) by crews is the answer. Thompson steelhead numbers have dwindled to 160 fish returning to the Thompson River.

In the early 1950s to ’60s, 8,000 steelhead returned. Spences Bridge was a thriving and viable community. It’s possible there will be a large protest rally coming up soon by those groups who want steelhead back. Killer Whales – There are two groups: one that takes seals, sealions and the other (resident) targeting salmon (78 per cent of their diet). Most salmon are Fraser River Chinook bound for the Thompson-Shuswap River systems thanks to DNA sampling. Both species are classed “At risk.” DFO scientists studying the second group feel there may be recreational sport fishing closures for Chinook come 2018 onward. First Nations have been pushing to re-introduce Chinook into the upper-Columbia basin. To date, it has not taken place. First Nations on the

Lower Fraser River want to net and retain white sturgeon. This is happening anyway, and little is being done about it. Much more was discussed at the meeting, including a growing wolf problem on game animals, parks, wilderness, land use and access. I’ll try and bring you more information in the coming days. Hunting – Many guys and gals have been

out looking for that ol’mossy horns buck in recent days. Any whitetail or 4-point mule deer are open. Lots of traffic on the 110 road, east of Canoe mill. Caution: Watch for loaded logging trucks during the week. Next week, it’s all about the Salmon Arm Fish and Game Club, their activities, gun show results and new RCMP range. Tight lines and straight shootin!
