Rail trail purchase finalized Purchase of land between Armstrong and Sicamous moves ahead. roger knox Black Press

The Regional District of North Okanagan (RDNO) and the Columbia Shuswap Regional District (CSRD) have successfully concluded the purchase of a section of CP Rail corridor that runs from Sicamous and Armstrong, excluding a number of sections owned by the Splatsin, after a legal and environmental examination of the property came back as satisfactory. RDNO board chair, Bob Fleming, credits the success-

ful purchase to a collective regional vision and a commitment to cooperation. “Similar to the Okanagan Rail Trail, this purchase of rail corridor will provide numerous benefits to the North Okanagan and Columbia Shuswap areas, including significant recreation and economic opportunities,” said Fleming. In partnership with Splatsin and their segments of rail property, this strategic land acquisition will ensure the continued public ownership of a key linear corridor

to be used for recreational opportunities, including walking and cycling, while retaining it for future transportation and economic development needs. There is also long-term potential to connect this corridor to the Okanagan Rail Trail, which is currently under development, connecting the City of Kelowna to the District of Coldstream. “From the beginning this project has helped to initiate relationships with our Splatsin and RDNO part-

ners. The CSRD is excited to continue to build on these relationships with the opportunities for regional economic and recreational development, as well as the opportunity to learn more of the cultural history of the rail line,” said CSRD board chair, Rhona Martin. “This new way of connecting our communities will go a long way in creating a stronger region. I am excited to see these benefits unfold.” The total cost of the purchase was $6.5 million, and with the provincial gov-

ernment’s contribution of $2.17 million announced in March 2017, the RDNO and the CSRD have paid for the purchase on a 50-50 basis, with the RDNO securing funding through borrowing approved through public assent and the CSRD funding its portion through a combination of borrowing and contributions from the Sicamous/Area “E” Economic Opportunity Fund ($250,000) and from the Revelstoke/Area “B” Economic Opportunity Fund ($100,000).

needs and ridership demands, in part because of the lack of other transportation options. Mayor Greg McCune observed that ride-sharing could form part of the solution. “We think that it is critical that the forthcoming provincial legislation provides flexibility so that ride-sharing has the best shot at being viable in small communities,” said McCune. “There needs to be flexibility so that it is not prohibitive for casual or part-time drivers to participate.” Enderby put forth a resolution in 2017 urging Victoria to adopt a ride-sharing regulation with attention to solving challenges unique to small communities.

Landfill plan upsets neighbours

Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram

THE FUN STORE

! Open house, online survey to gather public input on options. $ 77 SALE EXTENDED Martha Wickett Salmon Arm Observer

A couple who live near a proposed expansion of the Salmon Arm landfill think the plan stinks. Opinions from the public are welcome, according to the Columbia Shuswap Regional District. A public open house will be held on Monday, Jan. 22, 7 to 9 p.m., at the Prestige Harbourfront Resort. And an online survey awaits at the CSRD website, www. csrd.bc.ca, under ‘solid waste management plan.’ “We’ve met with four other families on the weekend whose property would border this proposed expansion – and not one of the neighbours supports it. And they’re all kind of astonished with what’s transpired, and the way it’s gone, the way it’s been handled,” said Howard Williamson Monday. The group has named itself the 40th Street SE Neighbourhood Alliance. Currently the CSRD has a deal in place to purchase the 20-acre Mounce property at 2750 - 40th St. SE in Salmon Arm for $750,000, contingent on BC Ministry of Environment (MOE) approval and the City of Salmon Arm rezoning the property. CSRD staff say the funds are available in the CSRD’s Solid Waste Management reserve account. Williamson points to MOE’s 2016 ‘Landfill

Criteria for Municipal Solid Waste.’ The criteria in the document, which are listed as guidelines and not regulations, state that “the landfill footprint must not be located within 500 metres of an existing, or planned sensitive land use.” Residences are listed as one of the sensitive land uses. The Williamsons’ residence, however, is 25 metres from the property line that borders the Mounce property. The couple retired a couple of years ago from the log home business they operated on their property, which is zoned industrial. “They allude to it (the industrial zoning) as though that somehow justifies it (expanding the landfill relatively close to a residence). ‘Residence’ is one of the allowed uses in general industrial,” says Williamson, noting he has identified 17 residences that are 500 metres or less from the proposed expansion. The MOE landfill criteria also mention airports, stating that a landfill footprint should be located no closer than 3.2 kilometres in situations where bird control is implemented – and Salmon Arm’s landfill uses falcons. “I would contend that the siting of the current landfill site was a poor choice… Things were different then; I guess the local people were doing the best they could. To

contemplate expanding it now only exacerbates the conflicts and problems…”

Ben Van Nostrand CSRD

Williamson suggests: “This whole stinking mess should be out of town. Expanding it and extending its life seems totally wrong to me.” Ben Van Nostrand, team leader with the CSRD’s environmental health services, said the landfill would never be located next to an air-

port today, but things were different in the ’70s. He says the Mounce property was issued a permit by the province in the ’90s to landfill demolitions and construction waste. Equipment is maintained in shops there and a massive concrete pile is stored on the property, he says. “It’s a different category of waste, that’s why we’re trying to hear from the public.” Van Nostrand says he understands the Williamsons’ concerns. “I’ve met with them, I’ve been on the property. The fact remains, they built their house beside a property that has a permit to landfill… I feel for them, but they’ve built a house in kind of an industrial-type area.” He says the purpose of the public input

opportunities is to hear whether people would favour moving the landfill and, if so, where. Or would another method of disposal be favoured, such as incineration. In Van Nostrand’s professional opinion, he says “expanding the footprint of an already impacted site is the best option.” Van Nostrand said CSRD staff think the Mounce property is valuable even if not as a municipal landfill because it could potentially be used for composting or to store or deconstruct items that the CSRD will be trying to divert out of the waste stream. Furniture would be one example of this.

I put red hairbands on the hangers of my biggest pants - size 11/12, yellow around my medium BC ones, 9/10, and green around my skinny jeans, 7/8.” That was November 2016 when the yellow and green sizes had long ceased to fit and her red ones were tight. Jo had an extra 40 lbs on her 5’9” frame, she knew she needed to make some changes. “My husband runs.

give it a try? The worst thing is that I try and it doesn’t work and that’s the end of it.’” But it proved to be a beginning. “The app gives you every single workout and it vocally coaches you through the workout. You can have music on, it voices over the music. You start with a five minute warm up and it says, ‘Start running,’ and you run maybe four or five segments of a one-minute run.” It was challenging but she did it. “It progresses to slightly more running and slightly less walking. You don’t even really notice the increase until you realize you’re running 10 minutes straight.” Even though she had never been a runner,

she followed the program faithfully. “By the eighth week you run for 35 minutes straight. Mentally you have to be - ‘Okay. Give it a try. No harm in trying.’” She remembers the day at the end of January very well. “It was cold, snowing, and miserable, and I knew this was the day I was going to do my 5K. It was freezing cold, but I thought, ‘I don’t care. I went out on Foothills toward Shuswap. I stepped on some ice wrong and I hurt my foot and I didn’t care. I thought, ‘I’m going to finish this stupid run.’ When I finished my 5K run I was crying.” Partly it was because her foot hurt, and partly because she had accomplished a goal she hadn’t thought possible two months before.

If I was unhealthy one day, the next day I’d run harder and make better choices. Everything in moderation. I wasn’t giving anything up, just being smarter.” Jo decided to take on the next app (also put out by Fitness 22) called the 5K Pacer that is designed to make you run faster. In her closet, she had moved from the clothes on the red hairband designated clothes to the yellow. She challenged herself to the next two apps, including the half-marathon app. Then she and her husband, David, did a half marathon in November in Delta. “It was in Boundary

Bay, a beautiful provincial park. We ran on the shore. It was one of the stupidest things I’ve ever done - two and a half hours straight,” she says laughing. “I thought, ‘What the hell am I doing?’ But when you get out there and into the zone you don’t even realize you’re running. You just put one foot in front of the other. The sun was shining. It was gorgeous. When I got near the end my mom, dad, daughter and husband were there. My daughter had made a sign saying ‘Go Momma, Go Dad. You’re a star.’ Seeing that made me run even faster. The last kilometre was my fastest one. I crossed the finish line and I wanted to cry. I did it. I ran 21 kilometres and look where I had started a year ago.” Jo is now well into her size 7 pants; it’s green hairbands now, no more yellow or red. “It feels so good when you reach that goal. If they could bottle that feeling it would sell – they would make a gazillion dollars.”

Former Sicamous Eagle now Golden Knight

Lachlan Labere Salmon Arm Observer

Former Sicamous Eagle Deryk Engelland’s career has taken on a new life as a defenceman for the Vegas Golden Knights and spokesperson for the community. The Edmonton-born Engelland, who skated with the Eagles for the 1998/99 season before moving on to play in the WHL, is prominently featured in a Rogers Hometown Hockey video released Dec. 31. The video, at hometownhockey.com, centres around the Oct. 1 mass shooting in Las Vegas that left 58 people dead and 546 people injured, and how the Knight’s co-captain and Vegas resident Engelland, and his teammates, rallied in support of the community. “Like all of you, I’m proud to call Las Vegas home,” Engelland said before a roaring, sold-out-crowd at the new NHL expansion team’s first home opener on Oct. 10. “I met my wife here. Our kids were born here. I know how special this city is. “To all the brave first-responders that have worked tirelessly and courageously through this whole tragedy, we thank you.

Race in the stretch

The recruiting is over — now comes the convincing. The B.C. Liberal Party will elect a leader one month from now and six people remain in the running, including Kamloops-South Thompson MLA Todd Stone. He is battling former Surrey mayor and Conservative MP Dianne Watts and MLAs Mike de Jong, Andrew Wilkinson, Michael Lee and Sam Sullivan. The deadline for candidates to enter was Dec. 29. That was also the deadline for leadership hopefuls to sign up members who will vote for them during the three-day phone-in and online voting period (Feb. 1-3). Based on the numbers released by the party, the B.C. Liberals remain a viable force, even while in Opposition. The party’s membership doubled during the sign-up blitz, increasing to about 60,000 from the 30,000 names on the roster when Christy Clark resigned in August. That means the next leader of the rightof-centre, free-enterprise coalition formerly known as Social Credit and now calling itself the B.C. Liberal Party will need to spend the next month convincing many of those 60,000 people why he or she should get their vote. Martyn Brown, chief of staff to former B.C. Liberal premier Gordon Campbell, has penned a series of columns on the leadership race for the Georgia Straight. In a nutshell, Brown dismisses Lee and Sullivan, doesn’t think Watts is a good fit and figures Wilkinson is too “vanilla fudge.” Brown says the leadership should be handed to de Jong or Stone, depending on how each does with second-place votes in the preferential balloting system. The final leadership debate is set for Jan. 23 and is scheduled to be broadcast on Global. It will give Stone and his challengers a provincewide forum that will factor in to their futures. -Kamloops This Week

deep, swift currents and high crowded river banks. In time, this long-rod technique became popular on the rivers and streams of the Pacific Northwest where there were similar stream conditions. Although most spey casters tend to be salmon and steelhead aficionados, many anglers, myself included, have started branching out and using two-handed rods for other fish species such as large rainbow trout. To go along with my switch rod, I recently bought a new AirFlo Tactical Steelhead fly line. Available in line weights from 400 to 670 grains, the Tactical Steelhead line incorporates a powerful front taper to help casters like myself cut through the wind with tighter loops and make casting modest sink tips with heavy bulky flies easier. The eight-foot floating tip section, which can be easily (and quickly) removed, allows you to connect a sinking tip to the line in order to get your fly down into deep and/or fast-flowing waters. Quite simply, switch rods excel at delivering streamers with sinking tips and shooting lines over long distances. Putting all this theory aside, the real advantage of a switch rod for me lies in the fact that a shorter an-

gler such as myself, or any other angler wading out into fast-flowing waters, no longer has to fear wading out too far and having to fight the current rushing around your legs. With my switch rod I can stay closer to shore and still make 75- to 100-foot casts and drifts. Another advantage, especially for someone my age, is that casting a switch rod requires a lot less effort and, on those days when I spend the whole day making continuous casts, my arms get a lot less tired. There is also the connection with the past and the whole tradition of fly fishing which, according to most historians, also likely started on the River Spey. Spey and switch rods have become common on western Canadian rivers like the Gold, Cowichan and Stamp on Vancouver Island, as well as the Dean, Kitimat, Skeena, Skagit, Stikine and Bulkley rivers, not to mention the Adams right here in the Shuswap. So many rivers, so little time. I ‘m looking forward to this coming season. I’m going to cover as much water as I can with my switch rod in hand, the sun on my face and the cool morning mountain air filling my lungs. Who knows, I may even catch a steelhead.

Politicians pose on plastic bags BC VIEWS Tom Fletcher It’s a municipal election year, with four-year terms of office on the line for communities around B.C. this fall. So now is a good time for voters to start watching for grand gestures from local politicians to distract you from potholes, pot shops, parking tickets, snow non-removal, bungled bridges, overpriced arenas and, of course, property taxes. The flavour of the year for 2018 looks to be plastic bags. The nanny-state enthusiasts at Victoria city hall are running to the front of this parade, imposing fines and regulations on businesses and their employees starting on July 1, to stop them from recklessly putting customer purchases into plastic bags. Politicians refer to

them as “single-use” bags, and as with much of modern environmentalism, that’s not strictly true. People re-use them all the time, taking them back to the store or lining wastebaskets to reduce consumption of those other disposable bags. Or they carefully recycle them, using elaborate plastic recycling systems that will still be needed. These social engineering bylaws don’t come close to getting rid of plastic bags and packaging. They come with a string of exemptions, to allow transport of fresh or frozen meats, vegetables, bakery buns and bulk items, from nuts to nails. Frozen peas and other convenience foods will continue to be sold in plastic bags. Electronics, tools and toys will still come

in those hard bubble packs that require a Jedi lightsaber to open, and all that stuff has to be sorted and recycled. The City of Victoria web page kindly allows that newspapers, dry cleaning and new bedding may still be protected by plastic bags, which it grimly notes are a product of “non-renewable fossil fuels.” Businesses may provide paper bags for a minimum 12 cents each (nice round figure), or $2 for a bag that is officially recognized as reusable. Two obvious absurdities arise. Most “reusable” bags are made from woven plastic, generally shipped from China. And as Victoria admits, making paper bags produces more greenhouse gas emissions than turning natural gas into plastic bags. Like many people, I voluntarily converted to reusable bags many years ago, because they cut down on waste and

they work better. My collection includes a 20-year-old cotton bag with a picture of a pelican and a slogan “keep them alive.” This notion that plastic kills water birds is great propaganda, and it illustrates how the anti-plastic movement is marketed. A friend recently posted an old picture on Facebook, showing a duck with one of those six-pack rings around its neck. A dozen people quickly chimed in to agree they were taught as kids to cut up those rings before throwing them out. Of course this misses the point entirely. The task is not to make them safe for disposal, it’s to recycle the plastic, or at least keep it out of waterways. Should tipsy fishermen cut up their rings before tossing them overboard to join their empty beer cans? Better to collect them in a plastic bag for proper recycling.

Joyce Butler is grateful to a Good Samaritan who came to her grandson’s aid following a motor-vehicle accident on Highway 1 near Sorrento. After spending the holiday in Salmon Arm celebrating the marriage of their son Paul Butler to daughter-inlaw Kaya, Joyce and her husband Wallace, accompanied by the newlyweds, had just left to drive home to Jasper on Wednesday, Dec. 27, when they received a telephone call. It was from their grandson, Adrian Butler, who had left Salmon Arm the same day for Victoria. Adrian explained he’d been in a motor-vehicle accident but was uninjured. Adrian was being helped by a man who lived nearby and was

looking after him. Joyce said they turned their vehicle around and were at the accident scene within 15 minutes. “He gave us pretty explicit instructions over the telephone of how to find him and, when we arrived, there were a couple of cars pulled off on the shoulder of the road with flashing lights, so we knew we were at the right spot. But we saw no sign of our grandson’s car or him,” said Joyce. Adrian’s accident occurred west of Sorrento near Meek’s Point. A Chase RCMP report states the driver of a 2013 Kia Rio was attempting a left turn from Des Fosses Road into the westbound lane. The vehicle was unable to accelerate, however, due to icy roads. A westbound Toyota

Matrix, driven by Adrian, quickly approached the slow-moving Kia. Unable to stop in time, Adrian pulled onto the right-hand shoulder of the highway. While Adrian was able to avoid a collision, the snow-covered shoulder gave way and the Toyota slid down a 30-foot embankment. Police say the vehicle did not roll and the driver was able to get out uninjured. The driver of the Kia was issued a violation ticket. “You cannot imagine how we felt when we got to the edge of the road and looked down the embankment; we couldn’t believe he was not injured,” said Joyce. “But he assured us he was OK and so did the gentleman with him.” Following the Good Samaritan’s directions, Joyce and company

made their way to the stranger’s house on Tate Place, where they found Adrian in good health, albeit shaken by the accident. Joyce regrets not getting the man’s name, but says the family is “immensely grateful for his kindness to our grandson and to us.” “The best Christmas gift was that our grandson was able to walk away from what could have been a very serious accident, and that he was supported by someone who came to his aid,” said Joyce. “I don’t know who he is but Sorrento should be very proud to lay claim to this Good Samaritan.” The Butlers wound up staying the night in Kamloops. The next day Adrian flew to Victoria and the rest of the family carried on to Jasper.

Proudly supporting the Community since 1998

Budget underway DIRECTOR’S NOTES Paul Demenok An ongoing priority for CSRD staff and directors is establishing annual budgets. It’s a complex exercise with more than 40 different budget functions for Area C alone, and each must be treated as a separate profit and loss statement, with incomes, expenses and reserves allocated. Within each function there may be dozens of line items that are combined to create the overall budget function figure. The goal is to develop a fiscally responsible budget which combines a critical view of any new or increased expenditures with prudent management of reserves to accommodate future needs. The single largest budget expenditure for Area C is fire suppression which, in 2017, totaled more than $1,800,000. This budget supports the operations of four volunteer fire departments and more than 100 paid-on-call firefighters. Operational costs include purchases of tools and breathing apparatus, costs associated with weekly practices, maintenance of building and equipment and communications. The fire suppression budget also includes major capital expen-

ditures such as the expansion of the Tappen/ Sunnybrae Fire Hall and purchases of new fire engines. Area C Parks is another large budget area. With the recent completion of the Area C Parks Plan, the CSRD will now pivot from planning to implementation of priorities outlined in the plan. For 2018, his includes completion of the playground at John Evdokimoff Park, evaluation of a destination trail and steps towards development of a new community park in Blind Bay. The development services department provides a number of services for Area C including administration of the official community plan, zoning bylaws, development permits, special projects, GIS mapping and bylaw enforcement. In 2018, it is anticipated there will be a community outreach program in support of future building inspection services in the South Shuswap. Water services is a growing budget function for Area C with the provision of community water to Cedar Heights/Lakeview Estates, Eagle Bay, MacArthur Heights/ Reedman Point, Sor-

rento and Sunnybrae. Major projects for 2018 include completion of the new Sunnybrae water system and initiation of development of a new waste water treatment system for Blind Bay/Sorrento. Economic development services includes Shuswap Economic Development, Shuswap Tourism, the Film Commission and Area C Tourism promotion. For 2018, we are looking forward to the implementation of the new Shuswap Regional Economic Development Plan. Solid waste and recycling services is responsible for the management of garbage and recycling. For 2018, we anticipate there will be a community outreach program to discuss a new curbside garbage and recycling pickup service in Area C. Other services funded through the CSRD include noxious weeds, fireworks, street lighting, dog control, SPCA, milfoil control and grants-in-aid. No significant changes are anticipated for these items in 2018. The public is welcomed to attend budget review meetings at the CSRD on Jan. 17 and Feb. 16. Please consult the CSRD website to confirm meetings times and location. -Paul Demenok is the Area C Director for the Columbia Shuswap Regional District.

WE NEED YOUR HELP!

To convince the Columbia Shuswap Regional District (CSRD) and the City of Salmon Arm that the members of this community expect them to follow British Columbia Ministry of Environment LANDFILL CRITERIA FOR MUNICIPAL SOLID WASTE. Quote from the BC Ministry of Environment “Landfill Criteria” document: “The “Criteria” provide guidance to landfill owners and operators, Qualified Professionals and Ministry staff on environmentally sound landfilling practices and procedures that are consistent with legislated requirements and desirable environmental outcomes.” Section 3.0 Siting Criteria states: “Proper siting of a landfill site is one of the most important aspects of environmental protection.” Section 3.1 LAND USE states: “The landfill footprint must not be located within 500 m of an existing or planned sensitive land use.” “Sensitive land uses include, but are not limited to: schools, residences” etc. The CSRD has made an offer to purchase a 20 acre parcel of property adjacent to the current Salmon Arm Landfill, for the purpose of expanding the Salmon Arm landfill site. We have identified 17 residences that are 500m or less from this proposed lateral expansion of the Salmon Arm landfill site. These 17 residences all have humans living in them, men, women, children, grandchildren. There are numerous environmental, social, economic, health and safety reasons for the 500m BC Ministry of Environment recommended “buffer zone” from Municipal Solid Waste sites. We have pointed this out to CSRD and City of Salmon Arm, yet they continue to think that they don’t need to follow these “criteria.” If you believe, as we do, that CSRD and City of Salmon Arm need to follow these BC Ministry of Environment Landfill Criteria of 500m from a residence, please phone or write to the following and let them know it; CSRD Directors: Phone: 250-832-8194 Email: rmartin@csrd.bc.ca, rtalbot@csrd.bc.ca, pdemenok@csrd.bc.ca, lparker@csrd.bc.ca, kcathcart@csrd. bc.ca, lmorgan@csrd.bc.ca , kflynn@csrd.bc.ca, celiason@csrd.bc.ca, trysz@csrd.bc.ca, mmckee@csrd.bc.ca and cmoss@csrd.bc.ca City of Salmon Arm: Mayor and Council Phone: 250-803-4000 Email: ncooper@salmonarm.ca, celiason@salmonarm.ca, kflynn@salmonarm.ca, aharrison@salmonarm.ca, kjamieson@salmonarm.ca, tlavery@salmonarm.ca, lwallacerichmond@salmonarm.ca BC Minister of Environment: Honorable George Heyman ENV.Minister@gov.bc.ca The full “LANDFILL CRITERIA FOR MUNICIPAL SOLID WASTE” document is available on line at: https://www2.gov. bc.ca/assets/gov/environment/waste-management/garbage/landfill_criteria.pdf 4 public hearings are scheduled re: this issue Salmon Arm: Monday, January 22, 7-9 PM • Prestige Harbourfront Resort, 251 Harbourfront Dr. Sicamous: Thursday, January 25, 7-9 PM • Red Barn – 1226 Riverside Avenue Revelstoke: Monday, January 29, 7-9 PM • Community Centre – 600 Campbell Ave. Golden: Thursday, February 1 – 7-9 PM • Golden Arena Lounge – 1410 – 9th Street South. If you care about this issue, please attend one or all of these meetings and tell CSRD and City of Salmon Arm that you expect them to follow the BC Ministry of Environment “recommended practices” for “desirable environmental outcomes.” Please sign our petition at: https://www.gopetition.com/petitions/stop-csrd-city-of-salmon-arm-landfill-expansionocp-changes-and-rezoning.html Paid for by 40th Street SE Neighbourhood Alliance

INFORMATION DESIGNED TO PROMOTE AND ENHANCE YOUR WELLBEING

Inflammation and Osteoarthritis FAMILY CHIROPRACTIC Dr. Warren Gage I frequently discuss the process of inflammation in the body and its impact on health and wellness, and this week I would like to address inflammation in joints otherwise known as osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis (OA) can appear in any joint in the body and is usually a result of abnormal or excessive mechanical loads. If a joint in the body is not moving adequately or in an im-

proper manner, it can cause an irritation to the tissues resulting in redness, swelling, and heat that accompanies osteoarthritis. Unfortunately a large number of people are all-too-familiar with the symptoms of osteoarthritis, but there are preventative measures that can be taken in order to combat this often debilitating process. One of the most effective activities to help prevent and delay

the onset of OA is regular, vigorous exercise. Activities such as brisk walking, running, cycling, swimming, and other exercises such as strength training teach the body how to adequately cope with mechanical stresses and loads. This regular activity strengthens the tissues in and around the joints and helps to ward off the degenerative process of OA. It is also now understood that diet plays a role in joint degeneration. The basis of it is reducing overall body inflammation. This is achieved through a very clean diet that

avoids processed foods, sugars, chemicals and pesticides. Eat organic whole foods to reduce the inflammatory load on your body and any joints that are susceptible to OA will function better. In addition, consume supplements that give your body that extra anti-inflammatory boost. This includes the essentials such as curcumin, omega-3 fish oils, vitamins D and C to name a few. Chiropractic care is also essential in helping to ward off OA. The spine is arguably the most important set of joints in the body

this cartilage has no nerve endings, some people can experience arthritis but feel no pain. However, pain may occur when doing specific activities that cause impact between bones, like jumping, walking up stairs or certain sports. Over time, knee arthritis may become worse, and pain can be accompanied by stiffness and loss of mobility. This may be accompanied by knee locking or buckling. Those who suffer from knee OA may seek treatment. In 2014, the Osteoarthritis Research Society International, a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting osteoarthritis research and treatment, updated its recommendations for the treatment of osteoarthritis targeted to different patient characteristics. The main categories of treatment include non-drug treatments, medication, injections, and surgery. • Non-drug treatments: Examples of non-drug treatments include exercise, stretch-

ing and range-of-movement strategies. Weight loss can alleviate excess strain placed on the hips and knees and reduce pain. Braces, sleeves and orthotics may help reduce pain and joint stiffness when directed properly through a specialist. • Medications: Many medications are geared around reducing inflammation and pain and include over-thecounter pain relievers and NSAIDs, such as acetaminophen, ibuprofen and naproxen sodium. Topical NSAIDs may be tried, and these can reduce the risk of gastrointestinal side effects from oral medications. OARSI also found that the antidepressant duloxetine may help with chronic

knee pain. • Injections: The Arthritis Foundation says that some doctors can inject corticosteroid compounds directly into affected joints. Use of hyaluronic acid injections can supplement the natural substance that gives joint fluid its lubrication and viscosity. These injections may help relieve pain and improve mobility. • Surgery: In cases when the aforementioned treatments are unsuccessful, doctors may suggest surgery. The Arthritis Foundation says joint lavage and arthroscopic debridement, which involve flushing the joint with a sterile saline solution and the surgical removal of tissue fragments from the

because it houses the nervous system. If it is excessively degenerated it will have a severe impact on the function of the nervous system, and will negatively affect health and vitality. Chiropractic care is designed to help maintain spinal joint health, and to restore proper postural alignment. Both which reduce stress and strain on the spinal joints. Dr. Warren Gage is a family wellness Chiropractor who can be reached at Harbourfront Family Chiropractic at (250) 8030224.

Methods to treating arthritic knees Osteoarthritis of the joints can affect people of all ages, but is one of the leading causes of disability in the aged population in the United States. A study published in the Caspian Journal of Internal Medicine found incidence of knee OA is rising by increasing average age of the general population. Age, weight, trauma, and repetitive movements are common risk factors for the condition. According to Dr. Scott Paris of Central Jersey Spine and Wellness, more than 27 million people in the country suffer from knee arthritis. An estimated 37 percent of Canadians aged 20 or older who had been diagnosed with arthritis reported osteoarthritis, with 29 percent occurring in the knees, states Statistics Canada. Knee arthritis occurs when there is a degeneration of articular cartilage that covers and protects the patella (knee cap) at the knee joint, offers the online resource Arthritis-Health. Since

joint, are controversial but may help some people achieve short-term relief. Partial knee replacement may be another option that offers a similar improvement in function, but fewer complications than a total knee replacement. Osteoarthritis in the knee can be painful and restrictive. Working with a qualified doctor, individuals can develop a treatment plan that works for their specific conditions. HM181608

In The Road to Wigan Pier, George Orwell wrote, “The peculiar evil is this: When you are unemployed, which is to say when you are underfed, harassed, bored and miserable, you don’t want to eat wholesome food. You want to eat something a little bit ‘tasty.’ There is always some cheaply pleasant thing to tempt you.” Eighty years later, the same truth exists, but not only for the unemployed. A tough parenting day. A task you do not want to complete. Tasty foods are always just beyond our fingertips. Sugary foods trigger a dopamine reaction that

make us feel temporarily happy. But when does an innocent indulgence cause harm? This is difficult to answer as sugar causes pleasure at a price that is difficult to measure right away. To develop chronic disease, it takes years or decades of abuse before we see any effects. And how much is sugar to blame, compared with genetics or other risk factors like smoking or inactivity? The World Health Organization (WHO), has taken a stand, recommending less than five per cent of your calories from sugar. For a 2,000 calorie diet, this translates to

The Canadian Sugar Institute (a national, non-profit association funded by sugar producers that provides a science-based Nutrition Information Service) frames our sugar consumption very positively (www. sugar.ca): “Canadians consume about 11 per cent of their energy from added sugars, well below the Institute of Medicine’s (the American version of

NaN dickie Opening Our Eyes For more years than I care to admit, I was convinced that I was a weak person because I experience recurring episodes of depression. Out of this ill-informed self-perception emerged copious feelings of guilt and shame. Today I know the truth. It takes a great deal of courage and inner strength to go through a lifetime of debilitating however-long episodes of clinical depression, bi-polar disorder, anxiety, PTSD, and any other mental illness. There are many aspects to “going through” an episode, not to mention a lifetime of episodes. First of all, for depression and bi-polar disorder, there is the gradual or abrupt, but certainly unmistakable, descent of mood, going from a mentally healthy (normal) state to the depths of depression. Even acknowledging the decline takes courage

as one realizes that, one more, he is going to visit that black pit, the abyss, the place of utter aloneness and alienation. The fact that she has been through this countless times before doesn’t lessen its impact on her current plunge. When one experiences a mental illness episode, he or she must make adjustments in their daily living. Some people can’t carry out work responsibilities when they are ill. Some are unable to face responsibilities at home. That is, one’s outer life is as affected as one’s inner life, and this is not easy to face. Then there are the cruel symptoms that accompany the experience of depression: dread, fear, feelings of despair and despondency, a disintegration of self-confidence and esteem. How does one face these crippling realities without completely dissolving? She faces it with courage (coming from who-

knows-where); with hope (knowing the episode will end – some time); with support hopefully (personal, medical); with steadfastness. As one climbs out of the horrible trip to hell, he faces a world that has marched ahead without him. She has to face her friends and colleagues who may look at her askance. They have to put the strands of their “normal” lives together again – primary relationships, work commitments and other activities. So many re-adjustments, all when they have little energy with which to do this necessary reconstruction. This work requires determination, perseverance and endurance. Most people with mental challenges choose to seek medical help, usually from a family doctor or at a walk in clinic, sometimes by going directly to the emergency department of a hospital. Some people go beyond this in seeking some sort of therapeutic help, through Interior Mental Health, a psychiatrist, or some other mental health

provider (for instance, psychologist or social worker). To embark on therapy of this sort requires risk-taking and opening up: being honest about thoughts, feelings and behaviors; admitting to feelings of worthlessness and uselessness. He may have to make tough decisions about his work life. She may need to alter how she relates to her partner or children. These actions require courage and humility. Finally, those of us with mental challenges live in a society that largely doesn’t understand what living with mental illness is like. But now you know! So, thank you for seeing us in a light of understanding and compassion; and accepting us as the brave souls we have to be. -Nan Dickie is the facilitator of a peerled depression support group in Salmon Arm.

Wonderstruck flips between eras Cinemaphile Joanne Sargent Wonderstruck is a joint presentation of the Shuswap Film Society and the Salmar Theatre, so it has a seven-day run starting Friday , Jan. 12, showing at 7:30 even on our regular Saturday night, rather than the ususal 5 p.m. Wonderstruck concurrently tells the stories of two hearing-impaired misfit 12-year-olds from two completely

different eras. In 1927, Rose (magnificently played by deaf actress Millicent Simmonds), born deaf and locked away by her father “for her safety”, escapes to New York to pursue her idol who is a silent movie star (Julianne Moore). In 1977, newly-deaf orphan Ben runs away from his Minnesota home in search of his estranged father in New

York. Director Todd Haynes (“Carol”) presents two distinct looks for each of the eras. Ben’s 1977 New York is filled with polyester and neon with the washed out look of 70’s cinema, whereas Rose’s world is filmed as a silent movie in black and white. The distinct cinematic styles help us to easily switch between eras and storylines. The movie contains almost no dialogue but an outstanding score fills the void of voices. Despite the 50-year time difference, as we follow the children’s

journeys, we note a fascinating symmetry as their footsteps cross many of the same places in New York City, and their stories converge at the American Museum of Natural History. The last scene, anchored by Julianne Moore, is superb and leaves the viewer with much empathy for the outcasts who rarely “fit in.” A film for children and adults alike, Wonderstruck is an inventive movie that explores the universal need for human connection and the magic of being young and curious.

Ski Team, Abbi May said Wilkie’s accomplishments are especially exciting because she has never coached anyone at the national-team level before. “It is very exciting for everyone, as not only has she qualified, but she has also demonstrated that she is competitive with the top para-skiers in the world,” May said. The gravity of her achievements are beginning to sink in for Wilkie, who will be one of the youngest competitors skiing in PyeongChang. Wilkie also competes as an able-bodied skier. When she does she uses two poles. Her training leading up to the games will focus on the use of one pole — a requirement for para-skiing. She said national para-nordic team coach Robin McKeever recommended she ski with one pole at least half of the time now, and increase that amount leading up to the games. Balancing her demanding training schedule and travelling to compete with her usual school obligations has been a challenge for Wilkie; she expects to miss about a week of school to compete in PyeongChang. Wilkie said above all she is thankful for the support of the community helping her overcome her injury and providing her encouragement.

My history with Jesse goes way back when we were involved in fund-raising and supporting him in his high-performance nordic skiing career. Now living and working in Finland, Jesse exclaimed how wonderful it was to see so many children on the hill. He and Mintu volunteer to teach kids on the trails near the town in which they live but there are nowhere near the numbers as he saw in the Larch Hills that Saturday morning.

But some things never change – the enthusiasm of the organizers and volunteers, the efficiency of the start and finish, the yummy food on the hill and at the post-loppet wine and cheese at the Community Centre, the excitedly anticipated awards ceremony and the camaraderie of the cross-country ski crowd!

I got back to the chalet in time to be the Chalet Host at 11:30 a.m. for an hour. That is always a fun and interesting time. The host is meant to be a helpful, friendly presence on the hill whom folks can ask where to ski and snowshoe, where the washrooms are and just generally be helpful. While I was hanging around outside the chalet, Jesse Heckrodt and his partner Mintu skied up.

Hills is 3-4 degrees colder than in town, so when it is raining in Salmon Arm at 3 degrees it is snowing in the Larch Hills at -1 degree. We have had some stellar skis since we came home from the coast after New Year’s. A memorable one was last Saturday when we arrived at the chalet just as the 150 Jackrabbits and leaders were heading out on their adventures. Very foggy, it was. Quite eerie, in fact. But no Jackrabbits reported being lost in the fog. Quite inspirational to find all these small groups

Judge Deibolt was to hold court at 9 a.m. after court in Clinton and Williams Lake. Now, suddenly the vehicle started to miss and steam emitted from the radiator. Lifting the hood, the judge could tell the radiator hose had burst. Standing in the chilling wind, he reached in to grab a heavy overcoat, as a mini-school bus approached. Not wanting to be late

for his own court, he flagged the school bus down. As it came to a stop and the driver swung the door open, a small group of smiling First Nations children inquisitively looked on at the man with the black suit and overcoat. He smiled at the children and then told the bus driver that the bus was now the property of the Crown, and the driver was ordered to proceed to Lillooet. Judge Deibolt, then explained the situation to the kids and made them feel relaxed. Soon he had the whole bus

singing/laughing, and children thought it a real great morning. Arriving in front of the courthouse in Lillooet, which happened to be on the main street, he then thanked the driver and kids for the fun they had. He then declared that the school bus had now been diverted from the Crown, and the Province, back to the Lillooet school district.

Hunting/Fishing report: It seems that few hunters bagged their deer or moose this past season. Deer seemed to be scarce due to much activity including ATV travel, heavy clear cut logging activity, and reports of predators like wolves. LEH hunters did a bit better. Overall, moose are having a tough time.

Late season injury bug bites roster of Chase Heat Squad to bring in experienced players for playoffs. Scott Koch Contributor

It was the week before Christmas and two games were remaining, both versus division foes. A trip down the pavement to meet the Sicamous Eagles on Dec. 19 ended with a positive result. A 4-2 win was powered by an unassisted goal by Jayce Schweitzer, a dandy by Gavin Mattey, a bonus by Michael Fidanza and icing on the cake by Evan Hughes. Jared Breitkreuz stopped 36 of 38 to cement the victory. On the 22nd, the Heat met the 100 Mile House Wranglers at

the Art Holding Memorial Arena. The Cariboo Cowboys took a three-goal lead before Pat Brady from Fidanza and Zac Fournier got going. Then Fournier made it close from Brady and Brady Marzocco. But the Rustlers popped in two in the third to one from the locals and the result was a 5-3 loss for Chase. So 13 days later, the first match of 2018 saw the Wranglers and the Heat meet again on the

fifth. The two teams went back and forth in scoring, Kaden Black in the second from Mattey and Fournier, in the third Hughes from Grady Musgrave and Black. Off to overtime and in the second extra period, the rowdies from the Mile Marker lassoed their second win in a row from the Heat. A night later the Heat travelled to Revelstoke to face the Grizzlies. For the first time in eons, Chase

got on the board first, Colton Nikiforuk from Musgrave and Fournier. The second was all mad bears who popped a trio of net finders. Hughes in the third gave the Heat hope before the Mountain Mecca maniacs fired two for a 5-2 win. Mathew Ens valiantly stopped 43 of 47 to keep his teammates in this one.

covery from a serious leg issue. Joining him on the sidelines are the three top centres, Fidanza, Black and Kolten Moore, along with defenceman Caleb Biensch, while Brady Marzocco and Conor Webb were bit by illness. The Heat have adjusted their roster, bringing in a ton of experience for a playoff run. The latest addition is Tyler Collens who was the captain of the Sicamous Eagles; he joins fellow newcomers Brady Marzocco, Darion Nordick and Seamus Collins. The player that was leading KIJHL scoring, Josh Bourne, signed with the Nanaimo Clippers of the Junior A BCHL and is lost for the 2017-18 season. Next home game is the Jan. 12 in Chase versus the North Okanagan Knights at 7 p.m. Happy New Year 2018 to one and all!

Residents of the City of Salmon Arm who haven’t been able to spay or neuter their cat are eligible for a free spay/neuter surgery, thanks to a grant provided to the SPCA, Shuswap branch.

Help for cat owners Cat guardians in Salmon Arm are getting a helping hand thanks to a PetSmart Charities of Canada grant to subsidize spay/neuter surgeries for owned cats. The $62,000 grant will provide spay/neuter surgeries for 350 cats in the city and start to tackle cat over-population in an area desperately in need of intervention. “We are thrilled to have received this grant and provide this program to our community,” says BC SPCA Shuswap Branch manager, Victoria Olynik.

“We have a constant intake of cats into our shelter, the majority of which are kittens. With this grant we hope to see a significant reduction in the amount of unplanned or unwanted litters of kittens and cats that end up in our care.” Residents of the City of Salmon Arm who haven’t been able to spay or neuter their cat are eligible for a free spay/neuter surgery. To schedule an appointment, visit the branch at 5850 Auto Rd. SE or contact them at 250832-7376.
