Martha Wickett salmon arm observer

Deedee Jones is fed up with her fence being dismantled. Jones’ family, the Kirshfelts, have lived on 320 acres that span both sides of Highway 97A for close to 95 years. The property, at #53 Riverside Rd., just down from the Mara Foodliner, is on a corner of the road where drivers routinely speed and run off the road, she says. “It happens all the time, winter and summer, it doesn’t matter – people are speeding. It’s my pet peeve, I just want them to slow down on the corner. They have accidents on the bluff corner (about a kilometre southwest) too.” To emphasize her point, several days after being interviewed for this article, she sent a photo of a semi lying on its side near a blueberry farm about a half kilometre from where two semis went off the road last month. This most recent crash took place about 10:30 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 22. The two semis she initially referred to ended up wrecked at her family’s property in December within a few hours of each other. The first crash took place about 1:30 a.m. on Dec. 20. That one might have landed on their neighbours’ side of the property line, she thinks, but she took a picture of the wrecked trailer

Photo contributed.

A semi crashed about 10:30 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 22 on Highway 97A beside a blueberry farm just half a kilometre from the spot where two semis went off the road in December last year. One memorable event in May of 2016 was “the Toyota truck that flew into the trees – it sheered off two popular trees.” Adding insult to injury, the driver, who had stolen the Toyota from Ashton Creek, managed to crawl out of the wreckage and steal her truck. She’s spoken to a tow truck company that reports coming to the same spot for about 40 years. A large black and orange decal warning drivers might help, she says, because drivers seem to ignore the ‘slow’ sign. Adding to the frustra-

sitting by her mailbox in the morning. “It had been full of fresh chicken – they emptied it.” The second one, probably about 9 a.m., wrecked their fence but they didn’t know about it until later as it occurred away from their house. On average, she says, the fence gets hit two or three times a year. “Somebody is going to get killed and I don’t want somebody dying on my turf.” Another fear is that fuel from one of the crashes will get into the fields and ditches, ruining farmland.

tion, Jones’ experience with ICBC has been less than stellar, with the information she’s been asked to provide varying according to who she is talking to at ICBC. “Who knows, we might just decide to take the whole damn thing out and forget about it. Let them go in the ditch. If you have a fence, you keep it a fence. It looks tacky all broken…” She says she has been asked to get three quotes for a fence repair. “Give me a break. I can’t even get one guy to come out, why would they?” However, ICBC spokes-

person Lindsay Olsen says leeway would be given regarding quotes in rural areas. “Generally speaking, we make an exception if they can’t get access to different quotes.” Following Olsen’s assurance, Jones received a letter from ICBC with an update. “They don’t cover property damage. We are advised to go through home insurance. A one thousand dollar deductible for a $300 to $500 fix. Looks like the fence will come down. Better signage on the highway seems to be the only answer.”

Collision highlights need for safer access

Ministry to monitor accident rate at Countryside Mobile Manor along Hwy. 97B. Lachlan Labere Salmon Arm Observer

Skye Ryan-Evans and Val Brackenridge agree that life is generally good at Countryside Mobile Manor in Salmon Arm – except for the access off Highway 97B — which they fear is a fatality waiting to happen. Both tenants of the 130-plus unit mobile home park, Ryan-Evans and Brackenridge were compelled to speak up about their concerns following a Jan. 15 two-vehicle collision at the park’s one and only access point off the highway. According to police, a Jeep was travelling south along the highway when a pickup truck turned across the southbound lane to enter the park. The vehicles collided and the pickup flipped as a result. The pickup truck’s driver, a 77-year-old resident of Countryside, had to be extricated from the vehicle before he was sent to hospital for non-life-threatening injuries. As emergency crews were busy working at the accident scene, a crowd of Countryside residents stood nearby, looking on while discussing their concerns for the highway turn-off. Ryan-Evans was home the evening of the collision. She said she walked down to the accident scene, concerned a friend she was expecting had been involved. “I was worried it was these guys trying to get home because they’d been to Kelowna or something… not to be nosey,” said Ryan-Evans. “I was fearful, and I’m not really a fearful person. That’s really the big downside of being here is that fear that the highway is a danger point there… So we’re just trying to find a way to cool it down a bit.” Brackenridge and Ryan-Evans say accident prevention and driver intimidation are their main concerns for the 90 km/hr stretch of

Emergency responders carry a senior man to an awaiting ambulance after being extricated from his pickup truck, one of two vehicles involved in a Jan. 15 collision along Highway 97B at the entrance to Countryside Mobile Manor. highway that fronts the park’s 90 degree park access that offers no acceleration, deceleration lanes or advanced warning signage. “Just the other day I was coming from the Vernon way trying to make our turn in,” said Brackenridge. “Three vehicles were passing us (on the shoulder) while we were waiting to cross. You’re supposed to stop behind me until I make my turn, but they make it so you want to get off the road because you can feel the wind passing by you with the vehicles, they’re shoving you into the traffic.” Ryan-Evans said a similar situation can occur when turning right into the park. “If they’re coming

from Salmon Arm, there’s the shoulder where we shouldn’t be, and they want us off on the shoulder and then it’s difficult for us to turn because you have to pull your nose out to get around because there’s a ditch here. So we’re on the lane where we should be to turn in here and they’re trying to shove us down the highway and passing us before we’ve turned. So they’re putting the pressure on us to make unsafe turns.” Brackenridge and Ryan-Evans have come up with what they feel are reasonable solutions for the troublesome access. One is a flashing amber warning light at the entrance. Another would be advance warning signage indicating there’s

traffic turning on and off the highway. Their third suggestion is reducing the speed for a 300-metre stretch to 50-km/hr. “We’ve got to come part way too, we don’t expect a million dollar layout – If we all do what’s right and people learn to read the signs,” said Ryan-Evans. The Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure says it’s aware of the 97B/Coun-

tryside access/intersection and appreciate any feedback it receives from the public. “Intersections like this are reviewed by the ministry to ensure they are operating safely and efficiently,” said MOTI spokesperson Danielle Pope. “Ministry staff have reviewed this location and confirmed that the sight distances are very good in both directions and the number of collisions is low… “We will continue to monitor this intersection and consider options as needed.” While they’d appreciate any help from the

ministry to address their concerns, Ryan-Evans and Brackenridge agree

there’s also an onus on drivers to slow down and be more respectful.

Selina Metcalfe. “James and I were just sitting in the living room and I saw movement out of the corner of my eye. It’s an old farm house and we get the occasional mouse, so I was prepared to do battle. I looked up and saw that it was bigger and for a moment I thought it was a rat and I panicked! Then I saw the fluffy tail,” says Metcalfe. “I tried to throw a sheet over him to get him outside gently, but he was too quick.” Metcalfe says the flying squirrel spent 20 minutes going from room to room as they were trying to usher him into various large containers. Metcalfe has a few costume dresses and crinolines hanging in

the laundry room. She says the squirrel even climbed into them and nestled in for a short time before bounding on. “Our dogs were outside so we couldn’t just shoo him out the door. Our border collie loves to catch mice and would have killed it,” she says. The family ended up herding the squirrel into the sun porch at the back of the house and locked the door. Then they brought their dogs in to the mud room at the front of the house and locked them in. “Then it was back to let the squirrel out the back door,” says Metcalfe. “But by that time he had crawled up under an end table and into the little drawer. It was pretty comical.”

Metcalfe slid the drawer open a bit, but the flying squirrel wasn’t interested in making the jump to freedom just yet. “So I just carried the table in front of the open door, put it down and he took a flying leap out in to the snow. He scampered off to the closest cherry tree.” Flying squirrels are more rare than their common variety cousins, but are not considered an endangered species. Biologists at the Canadian Wildlife Federation note they are a nocturnal animal – hence the larger eyes – and this simply makes it more rare for them to be seen. They prefer coniferous and mixed forest habitat, making this area an ideal habitat for them.

Robbery at knife-point Jim Elliot Salmon Arm Observer

The Chase RCMP are seeking the public’s help in apprehending a man who robbed the Chase Groceteria on Jan. 21. According to the RCMP, an unknown male entered the store located at the corner of Pine Street and Second Avenue, brandished a knife and demanded money from the cashier. The suspect fled the scene on foot after receiving the money. The suspect is described as a First Nations man who stands approximately 5’6” tall and has a medium build. He was wearing a black hooded sweater and grey pants and disguised his face with a red handkerchief at the time of the robbery. Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to contact the

Pursuit ends in roundabout Lachlan Labere Salmon Arm Observer

A Manitoba man arrested for uttering threats is also facing charges relating to a police pursuit that ended in a collision at the Sicamous roundabout. RCMP spokesperson Dan Moskaluk reported Friday, Jan. 19, that charges are pending against a 27-year-old man from Morden, Manitoba. He was arrested Thursday afternoon after the vehicle he was driving, a grey BMW with Manitoba plates, collided with an SUV at the Highway 97A/Main Street roundabout. Moskaluk said multiple RCMP jurisdictions were alerted Thursday, Jan. 18, to the possibility that a man wanted by Lake Country RCMP for uttering threats, was travelling through B.C. to the Okanagan. At approximately 3 p.m., Sicamous RCMP were notified the man was driving through Rogers Pass. “At approximately 3:30 p.m. on Thursday… Sicamous RCMP located the vehicle driving erratically in the Malakwa area,” said Moskaluk. “RCMP officers attempted to stop the vehicle by deploying a spike belt after observing it driving westbound… at an extreme speed in a dangerous manner.” The officers’ attempt

to stop the vehicle was unsuccessful and the driver carried on with police in pursuit. In Sicamous, the BMW turned off Highway 1 onto Hwy. 97A. Seconds later it reached the Sicamous round-

about, where it was involved in a rear-end collision with an SUV. “Both air bags deployed on the BMW rendering it inoperable,” said Moskaluk, adding police were able to safely arrest the suspect.

u.s. greed driving lumber battle

Countervailing duties and the ongoing, ridiculous softwood lumber wars waged by our “friends” south of the border are a real pain in the behind. Here’s what’s happening. For the past couple of decades, the American lumber industry has been crying the blue about Canadians sending our softwood lumber across the border. Obviously, the American timber owners didn’t like that, so they started putting tariffs on Canadian lumber and the stumpage rates harvesting companies were paying the provincial government “didn’t nearly cover the true value of the fibre.” And the softwood lumber wars were on for the long term. Now, it’s the Americans favourite weapon against us nasty Canadians. It’s definitely a pain for our lumber producers, and this is especially true for British Columbia, which sends a lot of lumber to the U.S. Most recently, the U.S Department of Commerce made recommendations regarding injury to the U.S. lumber industry on Dec. 7, 2017. Then the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) reviewed its recommendations and agreed Canadian softwood lumber exports was hurting the American lumber injury. That was no surprise to anyone, especially B.C. lumber producers. The federal government has now taken the issue to the World Trade Organization (WTO), and everyone is waiting for the American’s injury claim to go before the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) panels, where these independent bodies will once again rule the United States is not acting fairly in its trade practices. However, this time around there is a difference – the American lumber industry is booming. B.C. Lumber Trade Council president Susan Yurkovich said it best: “The ITC finding of ‘injury,’ despite the current record-setting profitability of the U.S. lumber industry, makes it very clear that this was not an objective evaluation of the facts.” Clearly, the Americans are being greedy. -Quesnel Cariboo Observer

recent occurrence of this was in September of 2015, while the next will not happen until 2033. A blood moon occurs when a full moon is completely within the dark umbral shadow cast into space by planet Earth and the only sunlight able to reach the moon is red light that has been filtered and refracted by the Earth’s atmosphere. A lunar eclipse occurs when the moon passes directly behind the Earth into its umbra. This can occur only when the sun, Earth and moon are aligned exactly, or very closely, with the Earth in the middle. So now, with a basic understanding of terminology, you can hopefully better appreciate just how unique next Wednesday evening’s events will be. In searching for information to write this column I came across the TimeDate. com website. According to TimeDate.com, the penumbral eclipse will begin to be visible here in the Shuswap at 2:51 a.m. on the evening of Wednesday, January 31. By 3:48 the partial eclipse phase will be underway with the moon starting to become red and by 4:51 a.m. the total eclipse will start with a completely red moon. At 5:29

a.m. the eclipse will reach the maximum stage with the moon closest to the centre of the shadow. By 6:07 a.m. the total eclipse will have ended and by 7:11 a.m. the second half of the partial eclipse will also be ended. I’m sure here will be a lot of great photographs on any number of websites afterward. The long-range weather forecast for the Shuswap area seems to indicate that the evening of Wednesday, Jan. 31 may or may not be cloudy. Rain is a possibility for earlier in the day, but who knows. All I know is that regardless of any weather forecast, I will be setting my alarm and will be getting up in the middle of the night in hopes of observing one of the most unique astronomical events of the last 150 years. On many a night over the years I have looked up at the moon and always felt a sense of wonder. I have peered at it through binoculars, telescopes and telephoto lenses. I have looked at it as it hovered above prairie landscapes and mountain lakes alike, and come next Wednesday evening, I will once again look up and with a bit of luck will get to witness something pretty darned cool.

Consumers face budget realities In her latest Healthy Bites column, Serena Caner complains about our food supply “being controlled by fewer and fewer sources” and then goes on to list the big five “culprits” as being Loblaws, Sobey’s, Metro, Walmart, and Costco who all stock items supplied from 10 companies “who control almost every large food and beverage brand in the world.”

One “solution” – she says – “is to walk away from the industrial food system.” And, further, “to get your point across by not accepting bribes, but by spending your dollars elsewhere, such as local, independent grocery stores and farmer’s markets.” I’m confused! Is Save-On-Foods with its 91 stores exempted because they are a Western Canada

company? If so, what about the fact that like the “big five,” Save-On also stocks products from the 10 big bad food producers? And insofar as customers “accepting bribes”, what is she talking about? And let me get this straight. Serena would have a family of four, with both parents working and barely making ends

meet, abandon the big savings they’re enjoying with Walmart and Costco and shop instead at the locally owned corner store so they can feel good about paying more and having their budgets stretched further. And to be sure they avoid buying products like Oreo cookies! No thanks, Serena! Terrance William Pausche

When hockey fans go across the line Until recently, I had never been properly exposed to shouting, bloodthirsty, hockey spectators. I deemed this a reasonable expectation as the young men playing Bantam hockey recently in West Kelowna are 13 and 14 years old at best, not being paid, and the admission was free. So I have to assume that the visiting team from Salmon Arm

had to be on a long, soul-crushing losing streak for spectators to immediately yell at the 13-year-old referee at the first call he made, and then proceed to demand that players on their team ‘kill him’, ‘skate through him’ and ‘hit him,’ referring to the opposing team. I am positive that the guilty people on this team are the Donald Trumps of sports ‘fans’ meaning they are there

and exist, but no one knows how they got there, and no one actually wants them there. Anyone who has watched any sporting event knows the difference between passionately rooting for a team and threatening behaviour. Unfortunately, the responsibility for curbing this behaviour lies with other parents and coaches on this team as a spectator on the opposing team

yelling at these people to shut up would only escalate the situation. The visiting team from Salmon Arm won the game handily. They played better; they were well mannered judging by their behaviour on the ice, they were entertaining. Hopefully, these 13 and 14 year old players can serve as an example to some of the people watching them. Jeremy Brown

Aggressive action needed to curb tobacco What is Canada’s leading preventable cause of disease and death? It’s tobacco. This week is National Non-Smoking Week, providing a reminder that tobacco is still our number one public health issue. Smoking kills 45,000 Canadians every year and is re-

sponsible for about 30 per cent of all cancer deaths. Based on the number of Canadians it kills, tobacco should be treated as an epidemic. It is well established that comprehensive, well-financed and sustained government strategies are highly effective at re-

ducing smoking. With the current Federal Tobacco Control Strategy expiring in March 2018, we urge federal Minister of Health Ginette Petitpas Taylor to bring forward an aggressive new strategy with far better funding to achieve the goal of less than five per cent tobacco use

by 2035. Canada has made significant progress, but an enormous amount of work remains. The lives of a vast number of Canadians hang in the balance. Rob Cunningham, Senior Policy Analyst Canadian Cancer Society

through FACES, an arts education program run out of the Arts Council for the South Shuswap, Clark and Frederickson have offered up their teaching skills through FACES. Not only is Clark the mandolin player with Tappalachian StringBand, he is also a highly skilled winemaker with Sunnybrae Winery. He says a friend taught him the basics of guitar when he was a teenager and from there, his love of music and ‘learning by doing’ soared. Clark moved to Canada from Scotland almost six years ago and has since picked up the banjo, mandolin and a little bit of the upright bass. As Clark says, “there really is no age limit to starting music.” His philos-

ophy is, as long as one is having a good time, the learning should come naturally. Clark will offer lessons in beginner guitar, beginner banjo (clawhammer style) and beginner mandolin, and he is open to students of all ages. His passion currently lies with old-time fiddle and folk music, but he’d would be more than happy if students shared their musical interests. Frederickson may be most known in the community for her entertaining presence and unique sound as the upright bass player and singer in the playful roots duo Chicken-Like Birds. However, Frederickson’s own musical experiences go well beyond roots with training in jazz vocals, choir, musical

theatre, guitar, bass and harmonies. With 20 years’ experience in songwriting and singing, and 10 years’ experience in performing, her approach to music focuses on what else – the songs. Under Frederickson’s guidance, students will follow their own individual paths in music, whether it be on guitar, bass, songwriting, singing or general performance. She will not only assist one in learning the language of music but in learning to convey emotion through song. Anyone interested in connecting with Clark or Frederickson to find out more about their upcoming shows, or seeking information on their new teaching endeavours, should contact Karen at 250-515-3276.

Outdoor school to start registering students Parents can enrol their children in new program for South Canoe on Feb. 1. It may be January, but Clea Roddick is already looking forward to the next school year. Roddick, a mother of three, is already onboard with registering her school-aged daughters in the Outdoor Learning School to open in South Canoe. The school will offer an outdoor-based program for kindergarten to Grade 6 and will open in September 2018. It may also expand to Grade 8 in future years. The North Okanagan-Shuswap School District will be opening registration for the South Canoe Outdoor Learning School on Thursday, Feb. 1. Registration will occur at the District Education Support Centre at 341 Shuswap St. SW, from 6 to 8 p.m.

“Anyone registering during this time period will be considered on ‘equal basis’. We anticipate space for everyone. However, if we have more than we can accommodate at South Canoe then we would use a lottery for those that registered between 6-8 p.m.,” says a statement from the school district. This means, unlike the popular French Immersion program, there will be no lineup and no first come, first serve. Roddick is delighted to be enrolling her daughter into Grade 6 of the program, and plans to enroll her younger daughter into the kindergarten program in the fall of 2019. “I’m ecstatic about the chance for my kids to learn the B.C. curriculum in a pub-

lic system but through an ecological lens,” says Roddick. “There is the sense they will be learning to care for the Earth, themselves and each other… My daughter is excited to explore new places in the community, enjoy being outside and, frankly, it just sounds like a very fun way to learn.” A committee investigating the outdoor school found plenty of research that outdoor learning programs have social and physical benefits, and are academically sound. As part of the program, students will be spending learning time outdoors in all types of weather, although the former South Canoe Elementary will be available for indoor classroom time. “Part of it will be educating the kids on how

to dress and be smart outdoors. Maybe don’t jump in the puddle and get your pants soaked if you are going to be out in the cold,” laughs Roddick. “But I have every confidence in the teachers. I’m not afraid my children are going to freeze.” After Feb. 1, it will be first come, first serve with registration moving to Bastion Elementary. Parents are advised to bring their child’s birth certificate and care card to registration. There is one caveat. The school district is still awaiting approval from the City of Salmon Arm and the Agricultural Land Commission to use the land for school purposes. “We are optimistic that we will receive approval prior to September 2018.

Libra, a financial windfall has given you some extra spending money. While you may want to splurge, the practical side of you knows some saving is in order. Scorpio, some things may be beyond your control this week, and that is okay. The measure of success will be how well you can adapt to the changes ahead.

SAGITTARIUS

Home improvements may be in your future, Sagittarius. Projects could be just what the doctor ordered to chase away any feelings of cabin fever that may develop.

Five cost effective health resolutions HealtHy bites Serena Caner It’s a new year, and while we all know we should consume less chocolate and alcohol, here are some other tips to think about. Drink water. It’s free, it’s healthy. In his book, The Productivity Project, Chris Bailey found adequate hydration increased productivity (once he got through withdrawal symptoms). While caffeine heightens productivity in the short term, it comes at the

cost of energy later in the day (when you need to drink more or have a nap). The bonus: in a single month of drinking only water, he saved $150. Invest in adjustable desktop. Sitting all day is bad for your health: your circulation, your bones, your waistline. Alternating from sitting to standing throughout the day can reduce risks to your health. At my house, I use a stack of

books on my windowsill. Oatmeal-to-go: Don’t have time for breakfast? Get a jar or thermos. Put in some quick oats. Pour boiling water over them. Take it to work. (If you are like me, you may need to add some toppings like cinnamon, brown sugar, ground flaxseeds and walnuts) Bone Broth: the health benefits of bone broths have been known for centuries. While most of us do not have time to sit by the stove watching a pot simmer, we can put a few things in a slow cooker. Here is a simple recipe from

Ice sculptors bound for Quebec Winter Carnival Barry Gerding Black Press

An Salmon Arm man is part of a three-person team competing in the ice sculpture competition at the annual Quebec Winter Carnival. Michael Larner, of Salmon Arm, will join up with partners, Mahina Rose, of Armstrong, and Brian Rouble, of Kamloops, to represent B.C. at the event. The trio earned a trip to Quebec City after winning the ice sculpture event held at Silver Star during Ver-

non’s Winter Carnival last year. It was the 13th time Rose had competed in the Vernon ice sculpture event, having been a winner previously and making the trip east to Quebec City for the winter carnival. “I know this time what I am getting into. It’s a great opportunity to rub elbows with other ice sculptors from across Canada,” said Rose. The trio are currently seeking out sponsorship to help off-set their travel, power tool and other equipment expenses that can be

transported on an airplane. They will have a 48hour time period, from Jan. 26-28, to create their entry working from 10 blocks of ice eight fee wide, eight feet tall and 12 feet long. “It’s physically demanding work because you are working outside in the cold. It can be challenging working in -35 degree temperatures. You have to make a lot of glove changes,” Rose said. “For the Silver Star event, you have 48 hours to finish and

Rose describes herself as someone who lives an artistic life which has drawn her to ice sculpting, while she describes Larner as their artistic leader, a carpenter by trade who she says is an artist working with wood. Their winning Silver Star sculpture was two people, one of them indigenous, aboard horses while sharing a peace pipe. The indigenous theme will continue in Quebec City as their entry reflects a Nootka legend of the universe resting on the back of a white

Magic moment

Magician Leif David’s flower fails to blooms but succeeds at eliciting loads of laughter from an audience of approximately 200 people at an Unplug and Play week magic show in the Salmon Arm library on Tuesday, Jan. 23. LachLan Labere/SaLmon arm obServer

An extra helping of films at the Classic JOANNE SARGENT Cinemaphile It’s a double dose of film for the week ahead, with one playing Saturday and another set for Wednesday. The first is Beatriz at Dinner, with Beatriz (Selma Hayak) playing an LA massage therapist and holistic healer, a Buddhist, an animal lover and an immigrant from Mexico. Doug Strutt (John Lithgow) is a ruthless Trumpian real estate tycoon. How do these two from such different worlds end up at a dinner party together? Well, Beatriz comes to her client’s mansion to give her a massage and when Beatriz’ car breaks down, she is invited to stay and attend the dinner the client and her husband are throwing. Doug Strutt is the guest of honour and they are celebrating zoning approval for a real estate project that will make them all richer. Despite the obvious social divide, Beatriz attempts to make honest connections while the pretentious guests ignore her or confuse her for the “help”. As the wine flows, Beatriz finds it more and more difficult to ignore Doug’s boasts about his

business acumen, his lack of regard for the environment and his accomplishments as a big game hunter. No longer able to remain silent, an impassioned and unwavering Beatriz lets loose on Doug, risking the hostess’ embarrass-

ment and making the other guests squirm. This movie has us rooting for the “little guy” who we hope will take the one percent-er down. Although the ending doesn’t provide the denouement we hope for, as the director, Miguel Arteta, says, the movie “is very honest about the sense of helplessness we’re living in.” Beatriz at Dinner plays at the Salmar

Classic Saturday, Jan. 27, with two showings at 5 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. For our first Wednesday documentary of the new year, we bring you Faces Places, the most popular international documentary at the 2017 Vancouver International Film Festival. This charming and powerful film follows 89-year-old renowned director Agnes Varda and JR, a talented photographer 55 years her

junior, on a journey to capture the heart and soul of rural France. They photograph the people, enlarge the photos and affix them to various structures and objects creating instant monuments. A wonderful portrait of rural France and the transformative power of art. Faces Places shows Wednesday, Jan. 31 at 7:30 p.m. at the Salmar Classic. Subtitled.

WE DELIVER FLYERS

Lake skiing offers new vista TRAIL TAILS Marcia Beckner What a great part of the world we live in that, not only can we ski on the trails and in the backcountry of the Larch Hills, we can also ski on the Shuswap Lake foreshore. Many times this winter, when time is short we have started at Raven subdivision and skied to the wharf and back – about an hour’s investment. Many ski from the wharf to Sandy Point when the conditions are right. Then Paul Skinner and Kathy Moleschi skied from Raven to Sandy Point return this winter. That’s one long ski! What I love about skiing on the lake is the perspective of looking at Salmon Arm and area from out on the ice, something one does in the summer in a boat but it is entirely different in the winter. And it

is so peaceful. Anyone concerned about the safety of skiing on the lake just be aware that the foreshore does reach out pretty far and then the water is shallow beyond that for some distance. It’s not good to venture farther out than existing ski tracks. Wildlife in the Larch Hills abounds but is not frequently seen! Two weeks ago, Jim crested a hill on Reino’s Run and a small moose was emerging from the forest ahead of him. The little fella saw Jim and hightailed it down the trail and back into the forest. Then last week we were skiing up Larch Hills Road and a small creature had the attention of a number of skiers as it crossed the trail and skittered down into the ditch. It was a shrew –– the smallest mammal on earth. So we had seen pret-

ty much the largest mammal in the LH and the smallest. Quite the wildlife sightings! The Reino Keski-Salmi Loppet was another grand success this past weekend. A beautiful ski day with great tracks, wonderful volunteers at the aid stations, great food at the finish line. There was a distance for everyone - from the weeest kids’ 1 km to the full racing distance of 34 km and the 30 km recreational distance. And those of us out there a long time were treated to the famous loppet soup when we finished. Yummy and warming! At the awards ceremony at the community centre Saturday evening, we celebrated Bert Revel’s 30th year of providing his small aid station at the end of Bilbo’s Bog. Plus we celebrated and recognized the many volunteer hours put in by Georgia McLeod over 34 years, and Ellen and Carmen Underhill for snowmobiling people plus goods to the aid stations by awarding these three the annual Volunteer

Award provided by the Salmar Association. Without the 200 volunteers pre, during, and post loppet we would not have as smooth an operation. We are indebted to them! At the awards event Shirley Pommier of Vernon made a presentation to the Larch Hills Ski Club of a framed poster of Reino skiing in a major ski event in Edmonton at the height of his racing career in 1984. She talked of going to University in Sudbury at the same time as Reino did and becoming a good friend of his. It was a bit emotional for her to give up the poster memory of her friend and skiing hero but she felt that since the Larch Hills was his home club the poster belonged in the newly expanded chalet. We will treasure it. Next year is the 35th Reino Keski-Salmi Loppet. We will be celebrating this milestone! Great skiing! See you on the hill!

Rawsome in the running

Erin Christie Black Press

When Afke Zonderland set out to fill what she saw as “a serious gap” in the raw foods market with her homebased business, Okanagan Rawsome, she hoped it would catch on. She never thought about whether or not she would win an award for her efforts. Zonderland and her Grindrod-based business were announced as one of five top contenders for the Premier’s People’s Choice category in the Small Business BC awards on Jan.19. The winners will be announced at a gala held in conjunction with the Open for Business Awards in Vancouver next month. While the 70-year-old entrepreneur says she’s excited by the prospect of being recognized for her work, Zonderland says Okanagan Rawsome was inspired by her personal passion for “nutritious, honourable food,” and a desire to share it with others. “I think there is a huge need for people to get back to the earth,” she said, recalling Okanagan Rawsome’s “humble beginnings.” “I’m an outdoors person, and pretty active, so feeling well, to me, is huge. At age 60, I decided I wanted to do something really worthwhile, that’s beneficial for the community at large.” After a successful career in interior design, Zonderland said she was ready to get back to her “farm-girl”-

Her homebased business, Okanagan Rawsome has been in operation in the North Okanagan for ten years. roots and began offering workshops on raw food and the benefit of cooking with it. “My husband I and both grew up on dairy farms in the Netherlands, and my father used to say the health of the herd, depends on the health of the soil, and I think that’s so true. And I wanted to help people take control of their food choices by providing beautiful, nutritious local food using the very best our local farms have to offer.” Her daughter, Anna Gorman, the company’s co-founder, encouraged her to parlay her knack for healthy food preparation into a business, and Okanagan Rawsome was born. Ten years later, the family-run business is still growing and their line of organic crisps are being sold in some of BC’s biggest natural food chains, including Whole Foods and Nature’s Fare. Zonderland says she loves that enthusiasm for raw foods has increased since they launched, but says their are currently no

plans to move the business out of the North Okanagan, preferring to be “a big fish in a small pond,” rather than “a little fish in an ocean.” “We need to be eating good food that we can share with our friends and family,”she stressed. “We’re happy to be a part of contributing to that.” Now in its 15th year, the Small Business BC awards is reportedly the largest small business awards competition in British Columbia. The winners will be announced in Vancouver on Feb.23. The winners will receive $1,500 cash, a one-year All-Access Pass to Small Business BC education and experts, and, of course, the distinction of being named one of B.C.’s top businesses. Zonderland beat out nearly 600 nominees from across the province for her spot, and is competing against Duffy Baker Construction Corp. (Penticton), Rising Knead Bakery (Whistler), The Gibsons Butcher, (Gibsons) and ULAT Dryer Balls (Parksville).

INFORMATION DESIGNED TO PROMOTE AND ENHANCE YOUR WELLBEING

Arguably The Most Important Vitamin FAMILY CHIROPRACTIC Dr. Warren Gage One of the most under-appreciated vitamins today is simple Vitamin C. This water soluble vitamin falls under the category of an anti-oxidant and is absolutely essential for good health and in fact, is now being shown to almost be a cure-all for countless ailments and diseases. Before I get into the many positive effects of vitamin C, I will explain how an anti-oxidant benefits health. In simple terms anti-oxidants donate an electron. On the other hand a toxin, an infection, or anything that causes a symptom

in the body occurs because there is oxidative stress. This means there is an increase in the number of cells under stress and that have had electrons taken away – they are oxidized. Vitamin C benefits health by giving back the lost electrons. Oxidative stress is the only thing that causes a toxin to be toxic. Whether caused by a virus, a toxin or a bacteria, when there is not enough vitamin C to donate sufficient electrons, disease develops. There are many other anti-oxidants, but Vitamin C is especially effective because it is a

small molecule that is found throughout the body. With all of the media hype about the latest bacteria or virus that is coming to get us, it is especially important to know that our body can guard itself – as long as it has sufficient levels of antioxidants. We do not need the latest injection or drug to protect us from something like the piggy flu. A known scientific fact is that when your body has sufficient levels of antioxidants, viruses cannot take hold. In fact, as early as the 1940’s an American physician Dr. Fredrick Klenner, MD successfully treated chicken pox, polio, measles, mumps, and tetanus with high doses of vitamin C. The fact

he discovered was that the toxic load of the individual determined the level of vitamin C they required in order to recover from specific diseases. A cardiologist today who is really speaking out about the many benefits of vitamin C is named Dr. Thomas Levy. In his research he is recommending adults take 1-2 grams of liposome-encapsulated C (which helps it to pass through fats in the body), or 3-5 grams of regular sodium ascorbate. He mentions taking too much vitamin C may cause some diarrhea, but encourages people that this is usually from the body detoxing and it not something to immediately avoid. He also

states a good pro-biotic will support the bowel while it flushes out and if it lasts more than a couple days then reduce the levels of vitamin C. I encourage everyone to be taking a high quality vitamin C every day such as the product we carry by Thorne Research which is free of fillers and additives. If you are interested in investigating high-dose vitamin C therapy for specific disease treatment, I would recommend you find a doctor who is well educated in this therapy as the reading I have done suggests it is extremely effective. Dr. Warren Gage is a family wellness Chiropractor who may be reached at Harbourfront Family Chiropractic at (250) 803-0224.

Three benefits of core strength training In the last decade, chances are strong competitive athletes, weekend warriors and

men and women who routinely exercise have heard of workouts touting the benefits

Stay Healthy GET ADJUSTED! New patients welcome. • Infants to Adults • On Site Digital X-Ray • Instrument Adjusting • Spinal Decompression Table • Custom Orthotics

of core-strengthening exercises. Those unfamiliar with core training might think it’s just another exercise fad, unaware of the many practical benefits of a strong core. To understand the benefits of core strength training exercise, it first helps to understand what such exercises are and dispel a common misconception about core training. People unfamiliar with core

strength training may mistakenly believe it’s merely a way to sculpt toned abdominal muscles. While core training focuses on muscles in the abdomen, it does not do so exclusively. Proper core strength training focuses on the body’s entire core, including the hips, back and chest as well as the abdomen. The following are three significant ways that athletes and non-

athletes alike can benefit from core strength training. 1. Improved balance While working muscles in the hips, abdomen and back, core strength training is training these muscles to function as a more cohesive unit. This can improve balance, which can prove especially beneficial to aging men and women who may feel like they are losing some of their coordination. 2. Uniformity of muscles Men and women who adhere to more traditional strength training workouts may notice certain muscle groups develop more than others, perhaps naturally or because they are willingly or subconsciously focusing on certain

areas more than others. For example, a person who enjoys doing bicep curls might develop especially large biceps but may not focus as much on the muscles in his or her back. That can lead to muscular imbalances. Proper core strength training reduces the likelihood of such imbalances because the exercises focus collectively on a group of muscles, training these muscles to work together and developing them at the same pace. 3. Better posture According to the online medical resource WebMD, core-strengthening exercises are the best way for men and women to improve their posture. That’s because some of the muscles worked during core training move the torso

by flexing, extending or rotating the spine, while other muscles worked stabilize the pelvis and spine in a natural, neutral position. The Premier Sports and Spine Center notes that some of the benefits of good posture include lower injury risk, better alignment that can lower risk for arthritis and improved muscle health. Core strength training exercises can pay various dividends that greatly improve adults’ overall health. MT182714

“That’s not how it works for a school of choice. It’s totally parent-driven.” David notes that the North Okanagan-Shuswap School District has recently approved the opening of an outdoor learning school in Salmon Arm. More than 80 students have committed to enrol in the vacant elementary school, and a district survey indicated 522 families expressed an interest in enrolling. “Parents in Chase and throughout SD73, please study the North Okanagan – Shuswap SD83 website, an excellent initial resource to learn about and understand the philosophy and vision of outdoor learning schools,” he urges.

A retired Chase teacher has an idea for the former Chase Primary School that he would like parents to consider. Brian David thinks Chase Primary would be the ideal location for a School of Choice – an outdoor learning school for Kamloops-Thompson School District. David emphasizes that a school of choice can only open if a sufficient number of parents step forward to show serious interest, and if sufficient numbers of parents within the entire district will commit to enroll their children. He says he doesn’t want the community to get the impression that they can go to the board office and ask a trustee to open the school.

essential Is your home or recreational property your most valuable asset? Do you leave it unattended or being occasionally cared for by a neighbor or friend? Shuswap HomeWatch & Property Management checks your home on a scheduled basis and helps maintain its security when you are away on vacation or leave it unoccupied for an extended period. Why worry about the security of your home or whether the conditions of your house insurance policy have been met? Homeowners, estate executors, agents of a financial institution and realtors, can be confident their home or property will be professionally cared for. Scheduled, comprehensive and customized inspections of your home or cabin help increase the security of your property by minimizing the risks associated with an “empty house”, and can ensure the conditions of your home owners insurance policy are met. When a property is left vacant or unoccupied, whether for a week or an extended period, it becomes increasingly vulnerable to break-ins, vandalism, and damage from unmonitored plumbing, electrical and HVAC systems. Shuswap HomeWatch helps mitigate

schools in Chase, including Chase Primary. He retired from teaching from the same high school in Chase where he graduated. “I’m attempting to be a catalyst here to bring this opportunity to the community… I’m not a parent, and not an educator in the system anymore, I just see an opportunity and with my past experience in teaching and in business, and as a past Chase resident, I feel there’s a window of opportunity.” He presents reasons why he thinks an outdoor learning school could fly in Chase. One is the former Chase Primary, which is now vacant. Another is the fact that no such school exists in the district, with the McQueen

But Chase finished them off with a pair of empty net counters, the first from Tyler Collens assisted by Jayce Schweizer and Seamus Collins, with the second going to Kolten Moore from Pat Brady and Michael Fidanza. Conor Webb in goal was spectacular, stopping 30 of 31 shots to earn first-star honours.

to say, these two rivals have a fierce competition and, as a result, this contest had a playoff atmosphere. The Osoyoos crew got on the board in less than two minutes on a miscue right in front of the Chase net. However, the Heat came right back and tied the game on a nice goal from Kaden Black, helped by Gavin Mattey and Musgrave. The hot-handed Collins then scored on a three-way passing play from Moore and Zachary Fournier. The Chase crew then got their third goal on another three-way passing play from Tyler

Collens, assisted by Moore and Collins. At the end of 20 it was 3-1 and things were looking good. Then the wheels fell off, the transmission blew and the gas tank was on empty. The boys from the Shuswap lost their competitive edge and the Coyotes scored three times in the second 20 to take a 4-3 lead. In the third the collapse continued, with the Desert Dogs popping in a couple more. Fidanza scored on the power play late in the game from Nikiforuk and Brady, but it was too little too late. The

PLAYER OF THE WEEK

On Wednesday Jan. 17, Mayor Rick Berrigan swore in a new board of directors for the Chase & District Chamber of Commerce. At the helm for 2018/19 is President Stefan Schielke from inTechrity. Schielke was born and raised in Salmon Arm. He started working on computers back in the days of MS-DOS. After graduation, he spent 12 years living in California and New York City. Working for a global logistics company, he assisted in development of client software solutions in Europe, North and South America. He spent his last two years in New York managing and bartending a busy sports bar in Grammercy Park. Schielke relocated back to Canada and initially worked in the Shuswap construction industry while doing computer support and repairs. In 2010, he was accepted to a double-degree program in Business Administration and Computer Science at Thompson Rivers University. In May 2015, Schielke graduated with a Bachelor of Business Administration (Honours) and a Bachelor of Computing Science. He is also a certified Project Management Professional (PMP) from the Project Management Institute. (PMI) He started inTechrity Business Solutions with the desire to bring back what he feels is missing from the service industry today, exceptional customer service and affordable, quality solutions. He wants everyone to receive the respect and service that they deserve. The 2018/19 Chase & District Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors consists of: Past President Carmen Miller of Miller’s Cabin, President Stefan Schielke of inTechrity, vice-president Kelsey Snelgrove of the Chase Sunflower, Treasurer/Secretary Brock Endean of Red Pier Consulting and directors Kerri Lindsay of Interior Savings Credit Union, Donna Smith-Bradley of Century 21 Lakeside Realty Ltd., Shelley Aimes of Aylmer Road Storage and Joan Anderson of Sunshore Golf Course. Moving into past president after three years as president and four years on the chamber is Carmen Miller from Miller’s Cabin and, with regrets, the chamber says goodbye to John Seymour of Lakeside Technical Solutions who sat on the board for the 2017 year. They wish him all the best.

Remembering Loved Ones

Place your condolences online. (Visit your local newspaper website, obituary page)

Richard (Rick) Pedersen The family of Richard (Rick) Pedersen announces with sadness that Rick passed away from cancer at the Kelowna General Hospital on January 18 2018, with his parents by his side. Born in Revelstoke February 25th 1958, Rick lived most of his life in the Kamloops and Salmon Arm areas. Cremation has taken place. No service by request. Rick loved animals. If so desired donations can be made in his memory to the Salmon Arm SPCA. Rick will be missed.

Reba Mayne Harper A lifelong resident of Salmon Arm, Reba Mayne Harper passed away in her 105th year on January 14, 2018. Born in Salmon Arm, she had the opportunity to see many amazing changes over the course of a century. An outstanding student, she continued on her education training as a teacher at Victoria Normal School. She taught at Gleneden and Notch Hill schools. After marrying Henry “Buzz” Harper, another Salmon Arm native, she became a full time wife, mother, bookkeeper, gardener, crossword puzzle whizz, hockey fan and unpaid editor of any book or newspaper that passed under her eagle eye. A hockey fan from the days of Foster Hewitt on the battery powered radio, to watching the Vernon Canadians Senior Hockey in the Vernon Civic Arena with her brothers, Reba rounded out her love of hockey as a season ticket holder of the Silverbacks from game one. The daughter of William (WJ) Honey and Agnes Bond, Reba was born in Salmon Arm on November 16, 1913. Apart from studying in Victoria and three years in Saskatchewan with her family during the First World War, Reba lived her life within a three mile circle, an unusual occurrence in today’s world. Although her geographical area was small, her outlook on life was large. Reba was predeceased by husband Henry, brothers Max Honey and Jack Honey, sisters Nellie Mathieson and Phyllis Birkelund, son in law Neil Griffiths, nephews Alexander Mathieson, Gordon Honey, Michael Birkelund and niece Phyllis Kavolinas. Reba is survived by son John (Sue) Harper and daughter Linda (Lou) Painchaud and four grandchildren, Shawn (Belinda) Harper, Julia (Brandon) Payne, Melinda (Justin) Englot, and Katherine Griffiths. Six great grandchildren round out the immediate family: Hailey and Madison Payne, Audrey and Grace Harper, and William and Connor Englot. She is also survived by nieces Karen Hamilton, Gail Raymond, and Lana Lipsett.
