Sagmoen faces new assault charges

Police seek help from other women who may have been victimized. Martha Wickett salmon arm observer

The man linked to the extensive RCMP search of a Silver Creek farm, Curtis Sagmoen, is now facing more charges, and police would like to hear if there are more victims and witnesses. The RCMP Southeast District Major Crime Unit have issued a news release stating that Sagmoen is now facing a charge of assault causing bodily harm and assault with a weapon

stemming from an incident on Aug. 10, 2017, as well as an assault charge stemming from an incident that occurred on July 1, 2017. “Following the execution of a warrant on October 18, 2017 at 2290 Salmon River Road, Salmon Arm and the ensuing investigation at this property, the Southeast District Major Crime Unit has been made aware of a number of allegations of violence by Okanagan-area female sex workers. RCMP investigators are continuing their

investigations into these allegations.” The new charges involve two different victims working as online escorts who used backpage.ca/backpage.com to advertise their services. The victims went to locations “in close proximity” to 2290 Salmon River Rd. in Silver Creek in response to inquiries on their ads. This is where the alleged offences then occurred. Sagmoen is scheduled to appear in court on these new charges on Feb. 19 in

• 3 Locations in Salmon Arm • Sorrento HUB INTERNATIONAL INSURANCE BROKERS

• Sicamous

Vernon Provincial Court. “We appreciate the cooperation and information received to date from those who have been canvassed, in particular the women involved in the North Okanagan area sex workers community. The primary purpose of our efforts is public safety. We believe there are other victims and witnesses to similar unreported incidents and are requesting that they come forward in order to assist us and so that we can assist them,” stated Cpl. Dan Moskaluk.

Sagmoen’s parents, Wayne and Evelyn, own the Silver Creek farm where police did an intensive search in October and found the remains of 18-year-old Traci Genereaux of Vernon. No charges have been laid regarding her death. The RCMP Southeast District Major Crime Unit asks that anyone with information regarding similar incidents are asked to contact the Southeast District Major Crime Unit tip line at 1-877-987-8477.

Traffic workers face too many close calls Martha Wickett Salmon Arm Observer

The vehicle was so close that Ben Honcoop could feel the rush of wind hit his coveralls as the car sped by. Owner of Ben’s Towing in Salmon Arm and a veteran of the industry for more than

45 years, Honcoop was working at the scene of an accident on Jan. 19 across from the entrance to Haney House on Highway 97B. Two vehicles were down the bank, a FedEx van and a pickup truck, and he arrived with his large tow truck

to pull them both up. Police were on scene, one police car with flashing lights at the bottom of the hill and the other down from Paws for Play Kennels, directing traffic. Signs to notify drivers had been placed on the road. Traffic was reduced to single lane to accommodate the work of the crew and their trucks on the side of the road. Suddenly a northbound vehicle drove right past the officer, despite being motioned to stop. “The officer on the lower side saw the vehicle coming and he screamed at me,” says Honcoop. It was nearly upon him, and zoomed by – a small grey car. It was going so fast, no one was able to get a proper description or a licence plate number. “It was lucky I didn’t get hit,” Honcoop says. “This type of thing goes on a lot more than you realize… My guys have had close misses, lots of them. “It’s a huge issue. People don’t slow down. People don’t adhere

Everybody seems to be in such a hurry. ‘Well you’re in my way, I’ve got to get around you.’” He says all roadside workers experience it, from paramedics to police to highways and construction crews. The public is just not watching what they’re doing, Honcoop says. “Put their own family out on the road and then see what they think.”

tow truck. One of the drivers at Vernon Towing was killed several year ago near Predator Ridge despite having all the lights flashing on his tow truck. Ken McLachlan, owner of Vernon Towing, remembers that day far too well. “December 13th, 2006.” Ernie Semkiw was about 10 kilometres south of Vernon, assisting with a broken-down vehicle driven by a BCAA member, when he was struck by the mirror of a passing moving van and killed. Prior to that, about 15 years earlier, a driver of a Kelowna tow truck was killed while loading a disabled vehicle onto his truck when a drunk driver rear-ended the vehicle, pinning him between it and his tow truck. McLachlan lists other crashes in the Lower Mainland in the past five years that have left tow truck drivers critically injured. He also points to Belle Bourroughs, the flagger struck on Highway 6 in November last year who died in December. “These things go on with some degree of frequency.” When Ernie Semkiw was killed, McLachlan vowed to Ernie’s widow Lynn that he was going to spearhead a movement to bring ‘Slow down, move over’ legislation to B.C. It already existed in Alberta and

Ben’s Towing owner Ben Honcoop says all roadside workers face extreme risk from distracted or aggressive drivers. other places across Canada, but not B.C. And so began a letter-writing campaign, many meetings with politicians, paramedics, police, firefighters, lobbying of BCAA and ICBC to participate, and more. He says BCAA was tremendous in using whatever leverage and pull it had to further the cause. In April 2009, he was contacted by the attorney general who told him “the squeaky wheel had got the grease.” The ‘Slow down, move over’ provisions became law in B.C. in June 2009. The law applies for emergency and maintenance vehicles which have flashing red, blue or amber lights. If travelling in an 80 km/h or more zone where such vehicles are at work, drivers must slow to 70 km/h. If the speed limit is less than 80, drivers must slow to 40 km/h. Failing to slow down and move over garners a $173 ticket and three penalty points.

Although McLachlan knows the law has undoubtedly saved lives, he wants to make the roads safer. Following a death, Saskatchewan has added blue flashing lights to tow trucks, to get drivers’ attention. McLachlan would like to see that change here. But the biggest challenge, he says, is enforcement. “The resources of police, they’re taxed to the limit.” He also would like to see limits on drivers who rent trucks. In parts of the U.S., he says, you can’t rent a vehicle any bigger than what you already drive. The person driving the moving van that struck Ernie Semkiw was inexperienced. “It’s been a haunting thing over the last 12 years. It never goes away because those of us who were here that day, we commemorate it every year on the 13th. We hoist a pint or two to remember the day and remember the man.”

Water protection groups seek improvements to regulations Tracy Hughes Salmon Arm Observer

Environmental and water protection groups are calling for increased action from the B.C. government to reduce the impact of agricultural waste on the Shuswap watershed. In the wake of problems from agricultural waste in the Hullcar aquifer, the B.C. government is conducting an agriculture waste review and has asked local groups to provide input and ideas for improvement. There is concern in the area for elevated levels of both nitrates and phosphates, which can be linked to waste related to dairy and cattle operations, including the spreading of manure and chemical fertilizers. The Shuswap Water Action Team (SWAT) is advocating for the urgent need to measure and monitor the cumulative effect of all the waste discharges into the Shuswap and to place a moratorium on new or increased industrial agricultural developments until the impact to the watershed is known. “The total volume of waste discharges is increasing in the Shuswap, especially with recent increases in industrial agricultural facilities. It’s inevitable that it will ultimately increase contamination of our water,” states the SWAT recommendations. “The Shuswap River is already the largest source of con-

taminants into our lake.” They also counter the notion that the industry can police itself, as in the current professional reliance model for following environmental requirements. “There will always be those that don’t follow regulations, so independent monitoring and inspections are essential, along with increased authority over agriculture volumes and locations.”

The total volume of waste discharges is increasing in the Shuswap, especially with recent increases in industrial agricultural facilities.

SHUSWAP WATER ACTION TEAM

Ray Nadeau, president of SWAT says without these changes, “our water will continue to deteriorate indefinitely.” The Shuswap Environmental Action Society echoes the SWAT recommendations and want to see mandatory environmental planning. “Our brief focuses on the use of the precautionary principle in decision-making and the need for improved monitoring an enforce-

ment by government staff to help minimize nutrient run-off into Shuswap Rivers and lakes, ” says spokesperson Jim Cooperman. The Shuswap Watershed Council, also sent recommendations, and chairperson Paul Demenok, says their approach was to “take a balanced view of the issue so that both environmental and economic interests are taken into consideration.” “On the one hand we have the lakes and rivers that support our tourism economy and are enjoyed by our residents. On the other hand we have a critically important agricultural industry right her in our region, contributing to locally grown food. Our perspective is that a revised agricultural waste regulation should take all of that into account.” Points made in their submission included considering designating the Shuswap watershed as a “sensitive receiving environment,” and collaborating with the ministry to define what that term means,

requiring nutrient management planning in the region, more protective measures for setbacks from water sources and storage to eliminate

leachate and developing a strategy to regulate small lot holdings. Comments on the proposed revisions are now closed.

Salmon Arm a winner in commute time Most B.C. residents’ commute to work takes much longer than 15 minutes. Martha Wickett Salmon Arm Observer

It isn’t unknown for a Salmon Arm resident to smirk smugly when witnessing gridlock in the Lower Mainland. Gridlock, like a lengthy commute, is as foreign to some Salmon Arm citizens as arriving early at social events. And that haughtiness

is not without reason. The results of the last census – 2016 – show Salmon Arm, when compared with other B.C. communities with a core population over 10,000, is topped by just one community in terms of drivers having a short average commute time. That community is Dawson Creek. The average

for drivers in Dawson Creek is 14 minutes while in Salmon Arm the average trip is 15. Salmon Arm shares the magic 15-minute number with both Powell River and Terrace. In terms of commuting on public transit, however, Salmon Arm’s status drops a little. Average commute time via public

transit in Salmon Arm is 30 minutes, while the public transit trip takes just 26 minutes in Dawson Creek, 27 in Penticton, Fort St. John and Prince Rupert, and 28 minutes in Nelson. Those numbers sound more impressive BLACK PRESS PHOTO when compared with Salmon Arm is a good place to live if you like a relatively larger centres in B.C. short commute from home to work, according to The average driver in Statistics Canada. Vancouver takes 27 minutes to get to and from work, while those who take public transit see an average commute of 44 minutes. In Victoria those numbers drop a little to 21 and 35 minutes respectively, while in Kelowna, the average drive to work takes 19 minutes or, for those on public transit, 34 minutes. Other communities in the North-Okanagan and Columbia-Shuswap regional districts also have a longer commuting time than Salmon Arm. In Sicamous, the average commute for drivers is 21 minutes, according to Stats Can, while there is no Since 1993 average time for public transit listed.

The average commute to work in Canada in 2016 took 26 minutes. Seven per cent of Canadians usually worked at home. In metropolitan centres, 22 per cent of commuters living in the Montreal core area commuted by public transit and took an average of 44 minutes to get to work, while Montreal drivers took 27 minutes.

Sledders safe after rescue from Owlhead

An RCMP helicopter was a sight for sore eyes Monday morning for two snowmobilers who had spent the night outdoors on Owlhead. At 6 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 28, Shuswap Search and Rescue received a report of two Albertan snowmobilers who had gone missing on the mountain that afternoon. Search manager John Schut said the men had become separated from the group they were with. However, the severe winter weather and avalanche conditions meant the search wouldn’t commence until the following morning, after an avalanche technician determined it was safe. A search party went up on snowmobiles but only made it as far as the Owlhead chalet, as

it was unsafe to go any further. Meanwhile, an RCMP Southeast District Air Services helicopter with an avalanche technician and a member of the local snowmobile club conducted a search by air. It was followed by a second chopper with a Vernon Search and Rescue winch team on board. “It was pretty iffy whether the helicopters were going to be able to get in there and look for them. It could have been we wouldn’t have been able to go in and look for them with the high avalanche risk…,” said Schut. “But there was a window where the helicopter was able to come in and search. The found them and the second helicopter picked them up.” Sicamous RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Dan Moskaluk reports the

RCMP helicopter crew located both men at approximately 10 a.m., approximately five kilometres south of the chalet. “The men’s snowmobiles were stuck in the deep snow; however, the men were in good condition,” said Moskaluk. Moskaluk said the missing men, a 25year-old from Calgary and a 27-year -old from Rocky View, were both well equipped with adequate clothing, survival gear and food. “This is another example of the need to be properly equipped for unforeseen emergencies while enjoying the backcountry,” says Sicamous RCMP Sgt. Murray McNeil. “Snowmobilers are urged to carry the essential gear; probe, transceiver and shovel, along with proper winter survival gear.”

RCMP arrest four in drug bust Tracy Hughes Salmon Arm Observer

Police are busy counting and cataloging a stash of heroin, cocaine, meth and MDMA, along with a large amount of cash, seized from a vehicle and residence in Tappen. On the morning of Jan. 24, Salmon Arm RCMP officers intercepted a man and woman from Vernon. They were stopped after leaving a Tappen residence known to police.

Officers searched the vehicle the man and woman were in and a significant quantity of heroin, cocaine, meth and MDMA was seized along with a large sum of Canadian currency. The vehicle is under police seizure at this time. With the evidence gathered during this traffic stop, the Salmon Arm RCMP then obtained a search warrant to raid a Tappen residence. Another man and woman, both

known to police, were arrested. During the search of the residence, a substantial amount of what is believed to be heroin and other drugs was seized along with more Canadian currency. All parties involved were released to appear in court in Salmon Arm at a later date. Staff Sgt. Scott West said quantities of the seized drugs are not yet known as they are still being tallied by officers for evidence purposes.

Ride sharing already a reality

Ride sharing is already in your community. It usually starts with “Can I get a ride downtown?” and escalates to offers and requests in the classifieds. But if we’re talking ride-sharing apps like Uber and Lyft, they’re probably on their way too. The expansion of the ride-sharing economy has been nothing short of incredible. Regulations may have slowed that growth, but at this stage, nothing is going to put it in reverse. The province of B.C. announced plans to take action on the spread of illegal ride-hailing services, ones that are seeking to provide commercial transportation services without respecting provincial laws and regulations. It’s already too late for that – ever chipped in for gas when a friend gives you a ride? We’re joking, of course, but it is going to be hard for the province to crack down on a ride-sharing app/service unless they are making a whole bunch of noise about recruiting drivers. Likewise, the competitive advantages enjoyed by ride-sharing services – and other disrupters, like AirBNB – means they aren’t going away. And if you think Uber is changing the face of transportation, just watch as self-driving vehicles start hitting the market over the next decade. In that case, taxi services would probably be able to do away with drivers and collect greater profits on their new fleets. But what about the people who, for the cost of commercial insurance and signing up with an app, can send their vehicles out on taxi runs when they’re sleeping or otherwise not needing it? It’s probably too late already, but the province and individual municipalities need to do a better job of revamping regulations to keep up with new economic realities. -Penticton Western News

food we import. The ultimate solutions will require all of us - governments, industry, retailers and individuals, to take responsibility for changing our approach to seafood and fishing. We hope you will choose to be part of the solution.” The problem is that sometimes those things that appear to be part of the solution are actually part of the problem. Just go on the Internet and you will learn a lot about the world of fresh and frozen fish and seafood. Which brings up the Packard Foundation, a U.S.-based charity with $5 billion in assets. The Packard Foundation hands out some $300 million annually in grants and funding. Seems like a pretty nice outfit. However, behind the scenes, they are also busy “devising and implementing” what they term “market intervention strategies” that effect, among other things, the whole seafood industry along the the West Coast, including British Columbia. A major components of one of the Foundation’s so-called intervention strategies regarding the seafood industry on the Coast was the establishment of the Marine Stewardship Council. Since 1997, the Packard Foundation has granted some $68 million to the Ma-

rine Stewardship Council to help promote council-certified products. However, a significant part of the money, some $17 million, has been used to de-market the value of B.C.farmed salmon while promoting Alaskan caught salmon. The problem for we, the consumer, is that there is no longer any way of knowing how or why any given product is or is not granted certification from who or what group. By the time I had finally picked out a nice looking salmon fillet with the SeaChoice sticker on it and some Ocean Wise-approved prawns to fry up in garlic and butter to put in my salad, I was no longer sure of whether I was part of the solution or aiding and abetting the problem. Yes, I want to help support a sustainable seafood industry and protect the wild salmon and save the planet, but mostly I just want to have a decent meal. I just want to do the right thing, but it’s hard to know what’s what when everybody is putting their particular spin on things especially when it comes the sustainable food-producing practices, salmon, wild salmon, farmed salmon, the environment, the economy and the planet. Why does a simple meal have to be so complicated?

Understanding the Secwepemc people – a book review SHUSWAP PASSION Jim Cooperman A better understanding of Indigenous peoples is now possible, thanks to the recent publication of Secwepemc People, Land and Laws by Marianne Ignace and Chief Ron Ignace, with contributions from archeologist Mike Rousseau, ethnobotanist Nancy Turner and geographer Ken Favrholdt. Ancient stories, archeological evidence, archival records, ethnographic studies, linguistic research and first-hand knowledge have been masterfully woven together to create this comprehensive examination of the Secwepemc peoples’ ancient connection to the land and the injustices they have endured for over 200 years. In addition to being the Chief of the Skeetchestn at Deadman’s Creek, Ron Ignace is an adjunct professor at Simon Fraser University and he was fortunate to have been raised by his great-grandparents, whose parents in turn were born in underground homes and were adults before the settlers arrived. Consequently, Ron became fluent in Secwepemctsin at an early age and grew up with a deep respect for his heritage. The book begins

with a look at the geological history as framed by the ancient stories of the transformers, who “tamed the land and made it inhabitable for future generations.” In doing so, the Ignaces have connected the emergence of their nation to the environmental history of the region. In the chapter on archeology, we learn about the evidence from excavations that indicates human occupation in the Interior Plateau region began over 10,000 years ago. From the earliest days, when there was likely a low population density of small family groups until the Europeans arrived, the history is divided into horizons and phases as determined by the type of stone bifaces (spear points and knives) found. Key eras include the Lehman Phase, when Coast Salish moved up to the interior about 4,700 years ago; the Shuswap Horizon about 3,000 years ago, when salmon became an important part of the diet; and the Plateau Horizon about 1,600 years ago, when bow and arrow technology was introduced from the Northern Plains. Certainly, one of the most fascinating

aspects of Indigenous culture is that there are so many distinct languages that help to define the numerous, diverse First Nations in the province. The Ignaces estimate that the roots of the Secwepemc language, Secwepemctsin, began some 4,500 years ago and eventually, two dialects emerged, Eastern and Western. There is an intricate structure to the language that connects it to the land and ancient experiences. Unlike the unsustainable misuse of resources that is so common today, the Secwepemc people were true stewards of the land, the plants and the animals. Careful and respectful management of resources was both part of their spiritual beliefs and their culture. Far more than simple hunter-gatherers, the Secwepemc utilized horticultural methods and habitat management practices that were an early form of agriculture. In addition, their egalitarian lifestyle meant that harvests and hunts were always shared and no one went hungry. The Secwepemc sense of place that evolved over the millennia is intense and can be best understood by how their place names are an integral part of their stories. At one time, there were place names for every location in their territory and these names were derived from the

experiences of past generations. Those names that have survived provide reference points to their history and help confirm the Secwepemc ownership of the land that was stolen from them. The dispossession of Secwepemc traditional lands that began when Europeans arrived and their resistance to the European occupation is well chronicled. Of great significance is the Memorial presented to Prime Minister Wilfrid Laurier in 1910, which describes their history since first contact and describes what should be a respectful relationship between the two nations according to their ancient laws. Described by the Ignaces as the Secwepemc “Magna Carta, the Memorial continues to serve a purpose today as it provides the “underpinnings of Indigenous nationhood.” One overriding theme throughout the book, is that despite the theft of their land and the attempts to eliminate their language and way of life, the Secwepemc people have managed to maintain and advance their culture thanks in part to their laws and traditions that have passed down from generation to generation. Above all else, the Ignaces have put to rest the misconception that Ingenious Nations were primitive people that were inferior to Europeans, as they

Bylaw helps police tackle noise DIRECTOR’S NOTES Paul Demenok At the January CSRD board meeting several bylaws were advanced which may be of prime interest to the public. The Solid Waste Tipping Fee Bylaw 5759 was amended to allow for free, year-round disposal of yard and garden waste and metals (including appliances and the fee for ozone depleting substances or ODS). Several points support this change, namely: • A number of weather-related events have resulted in requests to waive tipping fees to accommodate clean-up of debris from storms, wind and floods. Waiving tipping fees can only occur with CSRD board approval, so substantial delays may occur before implemen-

tation. It also necessitates use of grant-in-aid funds, which reduces funds available for other community initiatives. • A Major Appliance Recycling Roundtable (MARR) stewardship group has been formed in B.C. to help finance recycling of major appliances. Incentives offered from MARR along with the market value of scrap metal have eliminated the need to charge tipping fees for metals, appliances and ODS. Key amendments to this bylaw, in effect Feb. 1, 2018, include removal of the metal disposal fee, removal of the ODS fee, increase of the wood waste disposal fee to $40/tonne, reduction of the concrete disposal fee to $80/tonne,

reduction of the compost purchase fee from $30/cubic meter to $15, and an increase of the specified risk material fee to $240/tonne. These changes will not significantly increase taxes because of the revenues involved. At the January board meeting, Noise Bylaw 5754 received second reading. This bylaw has been in discussion for some time and attempts to address a very difficult enforcement issue. Senior officers from RCMP detachments in Salmon Arm, Chase and Revelstoke met with electoral area directors to discuss noise complaints and unanimously recommended that a noise bylaw be implemented. Their request was based on the need for another way to deal with noise complaints, other than a Criminal Code approach. They noted that criminal charges associated with noise

complaints would often be defeated in the courts. With the adoption of a noise bylaw, RCMP officers would be able to issue a ticket which would carry a fine. It was felt that this approach brings the remedy more in line with the nature of the offense. Moreover, if a particular property is associated with a history of ticketed complaints, then a following criminal charge was felt to have a greater likelihood of succeeding. It was very useful to consult with the RCMP as it was recognized that CSRD bylaw enforcement staff would not usually be involved with noise complaints. Most noise complaints occur after hours and attempted enforcement by CSRD staff would raise serious and unacceptable safety concerns in addition to staffing and cost issues. It was also recognized that noise by-

laws are very difficult to enforce, particularly in rural areas. Understandably, a noise complaint is a much lower priority than a traffic accident or criminal act, and given the distance between the nearest RCMP detachment and Area C, time and ability to respond is an issue. Another issue affecting this is the collection of objective evidence that can be effectively used in court. Hours of enforcement for the noise bylaw will be from 12 a.m. to 7 a.m. This bylaw will not deal with complaints outside these hours, nor will it deal with noise complaints involving boats. While it is recognized that any noise bylaw will be imperfect, I think Bylaw 5754 a good step forward and will be helpful in many situations. -Paul Demenok is the Area C Director for the Columbia Shuswap Regional District

B.C. breaks record for transplant donations

By Ashley Wadhwani Black Press

For the first time in his medical career, Dr. David Landsberg feels like B.C. is leading the way for deceased organ transplant – and rightfully so. A record-breaking 479 lives were saved by organ transplants in B.C. last year, according to new data from the Ministry of Health, a 25 per cent increase from 2016. Landsberg, BC Transplant’s provincial medical doctor, said in a statement Friday this translates to more lives being saved than ever before. The province suggests the growth is from a mix of system upgrades and healthcare teams’ increasing efforts to identify potential donors and support families in choosing organ donation. But there’s also been a cultural shift, Landsberg said, that’s normalized deceased organ donations.

“This is a result of system changes we’ve made over the past few years that are now having an impact, but also a shift in our culture to one that fully supports organ donation as a normal end-of-life option,” he said in a news release. In times of tragedy, it has become more common for some families and loved ones to find closure in seeing a life forever-changed through the donation of a kidney or lung or heart. And while B.C. has been ground-zero of the opioid epidemic in Canada, opioid-related deaths have also been linked to increasing organ transplants. Although B.C.

And while some were lucky enough to receive a transplant, 29 died

while waiting for a life-saving organ. Alison Snowden was one of the 52 British Columbians to receive the gift of life last year, in the form of new lungs. “You never think something like this is going to happen to you until it does,” she said. “A transplant saved my life.” Lung and kidney transplants were the two kinds of organ donations that saw the biggest rate increase in 2017, totalling more than 30 per cent of the total transplants. Meanwhile, 97 living kidney transplants were performed.

Grass, grain or organic beef –what’s the difference? it in smaller portions. Including beef as part of a stew, casserole or stir-fry “stretches” how far it can go. Or have it

Serena Caner Everybody loves a good burger. Providing protein, iron, zinc and vitamin B12, beef can be part of a healthy diet. However, we know that too much red meat is not good for our planet or our bodies. Beef tends to be higher in saturated fats than other meats and requires more resources for its production than other animals. What is the healthiest way to eat beef? In conventional beef production, cows are sent to a feedlot before slaughter to be fattened quickly with a diet enhanced with grains,

such as corn or soy. This reduces the time required for the cow to reach market weight and increases the marbling of fat within the meat itself. With organic beef, any grass or feed given to cattle is free of antibiotics, hormones, synthetic pesticides and herbicides and genetically modified ingredients. It does not mean that the cows have lived their whole life “on the farm”. Grass-fed beef allows cows to spend their entire lives in pasture, eating only grass, as nature intended. In the winter, they eat hay (dried

Grass-fed beef allows cows to spend their entire lives in pasture, eating only grass, as nature intended. grasses) and silage (fermented grasses). This lifestyle makes grass fed beef higher in omega3 and B vitamins and lower in fat than conventional beef. The main barrier to grass-fed beef for most people is cost. Allowing cows to fatten naturally on grass takes six to twelve months longer to reach market weight. This translates to extra grass, care and labour.

Salmon Arm is lucky to have several grassfed beef farms including Black Farm, Grass Roots Dairies and Balmoral Farms. Local, grass-fed beef can be purchased directly from farms or at specialty meat and farm-market stores. Balmoral will be selling its beef at Askew’s from Feb.1-3. Whatever type of beef you choose to consume, it is recommended that you eat

Alan and Merv bought a new mill large enough to fill the orders of the beams and timbers that the old saw mill could not handle. The next generation has now joined the business. Alan and his son Tyler work the mill together making a great father/son team. Our team at Hyde Sawmill takes great pride in their workmanship and in supplying a superior product to customers.

Alan started cutting ties for the Railroad which were in great demand at the time. He was also cutting cedar cants for a re-saw mill along with beams and timbers for many homes that were built in Sicamous and the area. Alan and Kim operated this mill for seven years.

L’Elisir d’Amore (The Elixir of Love) by Gaetano Donizetti has been among the most consistently popular operatic comedies for almost two centuries since it’s world premiere in Milan in 1832. The story deftly combines comic archetypes with a degree of genuine character development. Its ending is as much a foregone

conclusion as it would be in a romantic comedy film today. Donizetti (1797 – 1848) composed about 75 operas, many unknown until about 50 years ago when selected works came back into the repertoire. Felice Romani (1788-1865) the official librettist of Milan’s Teatro alla Scala, worked with Donizetti on several other operas. The opera is set in a small village in rural Italy. It’s a place where everyone knows everyone and where traveling salesmen provide a major form of public entertainment. The

Met’s production sets the action in 1836, when the Risorgimento, the movement for Italian independence, was beginning to gather momentum. Barlett Sher’s production is charming, with deft comedic timing, but also emotionally revealing. The four great leading roles are cast by Pretty Yende who debuts at the Met with her first Adina opposite Matthew Polenzani. Davide Luciano is Captain Belcore with Ildebrando D’Arcangelo as Dulcamara — the travelling salesman. Domingo Hindoyan conducts. L’Elisir combines

a light-hearted love story with beautiful melodies. The tenor’s show stopping aria “Una furtiva lagrima” in Act II will have audiences holding their breath. Among the star tenors to appear as Nemorino, and to perform that most rewarding of arias, are Caruso, Gigli, Bergonzi, Pavarotti, and now Polenzani. This opera represents the best of bel canto tradition – from funny patter songs to rich ensembles to wrenching melody in the solos. The joy is in the journey, and Donizetti created one of his most instantly appeal-

Cinemaphile Call Me By Your Name is a beautiful film about a 17-year-old boy’s awakening to first love and desire. The boy, Elio, is the only son of an archaeologist and his wife, who summer at their 17th century villa in northern Italy. Elio is smart as a whip, a composer and a student of languages, but, as one would expect, naive in matters of the heart. The summer days drag by until the arrival of Ol-

iver (Armie Hammer), there for a six-week internship with Elio’s father. Oliver is 24, handsome, charming and self-assured, and Elio develops an immediate attraction to him and quickly shifts his focus from his French girlfriend to this American “hunk.” The romance between the two develops slowly, with stolen glances, innuendo and mixed signals as the pair tries to work out where the other’s feelings lie. It is the 1980’s and, although Elio’s parents seem to approve of the liaison, there is still trepidation about acting on the attraction. Ultimately the relationship blooms and the two enjoy euphoric days filled with music, food and romance, and an exciting end-of-summer trip that seems all the more heartfelt as an inevitable goodbye looms. The cinematography is gorgeous and slow in pace, reflecting the nature of time in the

With spectacular shots of the Italian villa and countryside, the director, Luca Guadagnino, captures the seductiveness of nature and the passions it can arouse. The score, which features 80’s pop songs, classical melodies and original songs, adds another layer of lushness to the film. Call Me By Your Name is nominated for Academy Awards for Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Picture. The movie is superbly acted, particularly by Timothee Chalamet, who navigates all the complexity of Elio’s emergent feelings. He is a budding superstar who received nominations for Best Actor at

the Golden Globes and the Oscars for this role. There are two poignant scenes near the end of the movie, a much lauded one with Elio’s father (Michael Stuhlbarg) that is deeply moving, and the final shot of Elio that truly captures all the emotions of love and loss, longing and despair. In the end, Call Me By Your Name is a love story that transcends labels to simply express a pure and innocent tale of first love. The intimate scenes are handled delicately and with discretion. The 14A rating is for sexual content, nudity and foul language but all are minimal. Presented by the Film Society at 5 p.m. on Feb. 3 at the Salmar Classic.

R.J. Haney Heritage Village & Museum and The Mall at Piccadilly have partnered to celebrate Heritage Week, from Feb. 19 to 24. This year’s heritage week theme is “Heritage Stands the Test of Time” and is meant to encourage British Columbians to reflect. The 22nd Annual Heritage Week keepsake poster features an image from the Museum’s collection of the Bank of Hamilton. The Bank of Hamilton has historical value as the first financial institution to open in Salmon Arm, establishing itself in 1906, at a time when the community was undergoing its first wave of economic prosperity. Constructed in 1910 on a prominent downtown corner lot at Alexander and Hudson, the new building represented the importance of the first bank in the growing community. If you want to visit the Bank of Hamilton today, a replica sits predominantly on Front Street at R.J. Haney Heritage Village. Like the original building, its two-storey, wood-frame, rectangular structure gives the building a sense of importance and landmark

Small in stature but mighty in performance, Irish Mythen returns to Salmon Arm on Valentine’s Day. Anybody who has been around the Salmon Arm Roots & Blues Festival for a long time has never seen a crowd as big as the one Mythen garnered at the Shade Stage on the Sunday afternoon at last year’s festival, says artistic director Peter North. “One of the things that really triggered her reception was putting her on as a “tweener” Friday night before Ricky Skaggs,” says North. “People didn’t know her at that point, but getting her in front of a big crowd had them following her; it was a home run right out of the gate.” North says Mythen was a delight to work with, in workshops or doing her own thing. And that thing is a combination of heartfelt storytelling with (sometimes ribald) humour interjected between songs. It is the humour, she says, that allows her to have a very social-

the idea that someone who has a story not to be able to approach me would be awful.” A huge fan of collaborative workshops, Mythen thrives on the fact the unique sessions with artists, who often have never even met, are an opportunity that will never happen again. First and foremost, says Mythen, who has toured with Rod Stewart and Melissa Etheridge, she regards her career as a “damn humongous privilege.” “It is hard work that’s unseen, it’s a sacrifice personally, but at the

City noted for welcoming small business Penticton, Salmon Arm, Lumby finalists in provincial awards competition. Three Okanagan-Shuswap communities have made the short list for the province’s Open for Business awards. Penticton is a contender in the large community category, Salmon Arm is named a finalist for a medium community and Lumby is shortlisted in the small community category. Penticton is up against Campbell River and Prince George, Salmon Arm is vying for the win against Cranbrook and Kimberly and Lumby is competing against Chetwynd. The communities selected have proven their support for their local small businesses by adopting business-friendly best practices in their region. “The Open for Business Awards are an important opportunity to recognize leadership from municipalities

and First Nations throughout B.C. that have created a more welcoming small business environment,” said Bruce Ralston, Minister of Jobs, Trade and Technology. “This year’s finalists have demonstrated new and innovative ways of supporting small businesses and good jobs for British Columbians by improving services and reducing regulatory burden in their communities.” This year, 31 communities from across the province presented case studies on one of their initiatives to the awards judges for review to prove why their community is the best and most supportive of small business. “We are very happy to partner with the Province to deliver the Open for Business Awards and bring to the forefront communities that deserve

to be recognized for their support of small business,” said George Hunter, CEO at Small Business BC. “It’s important to recognize not only the small businesses of B.C., but also the local governments who support them and create space for them to flourish. Being able to present the Open for Business Awards

at the Small Business Awards Gala creates a unique opportunity to celebrate both small businesses and the communities they thrive in.” In partnership with the BC Small Business Roundtable, Small Business BC will host the Open for Business Awards at the Small Business BC

Awards Gala on Feb. 23, at the Vancouver Convention Centre, where the winners of each category will be announced. Gala tickets are now on sale at www.sbbcawards.ca/ buy-tickets. More details on the Open for Business Awards can be found at www.sbbcawards/ ca.open-for-business.

I may feel (and it’s happened too often), “I’m worthless—I’ve been depressed for months now, and I can’t get myself out of it.” I may have a kneejerk reaction to that feeling, chastising myself with, “You’re stupid to feel this way.” But I do feel worthless, which is common when one is depressed.

feeling because I don’t want to have it. Feelings don’t work that way. So, what can I do about it? I can accept that I am feeling worthless, be kind to myself by knowing it’s part of the illness, and I know that it doesn’t say anything about my true value. I can change my thought to, “Oh, yes. I recognize this feeling of worthlessness. It happens every time I get depressed.” This is self-compassion at play. As human beings, living with or without

decide that I can approach her and say, “I know it’s hard to know what to say to me when I’m depressed. Just ‘I’m sorry to hear you’re not feeling well these days,’ would be great.” What a difference! Feelings are another matter. Feelings exist within us, and sometimes in spite of us. They just are. We can’t pretend that we don’t have a particular feeling; nor can we pretend we have a feeling that doesn’t exist, as much as we wish it did. So, the best thing is to acknowledge and accept

Sometimes it is difficult to distinguish our thoughts from our feelings, especially if we are in the habit of hiding our feelings, or have come to believe that it’s safer to think than to feel. We may try to ignore thoughts and feelings if they make us uncomfortable. We do this at our own peril, as thoughts and feelings don’t just dissolve

We can accept that thought or challenge it. We may decide we need to change our thinking about this. We always have the choice to change our thoughts. Always. For instance, let’s say I find myself thinking, “So-and-so is ignoring me because she knows I am depressed.” My knee-jerk reaction (thought) might be, “She’s cruel.” If I catch myself right then, I might re-consider, “Maybe she’s embarrassed because she doesn’t know what to say to me.” And then I could

dealing with an unusual set of car troubles ShuSwap OutdOOrS Hank Shelley A pale blue sky arches over branches of silver lace. Old Fred makes his way along the trail, down to the lake, among weeds and grasses silvered into wands sparkling in early morning light. He loved his ice fishing. Each day he would head to Crescent Lake, lunch, cooler, gear, drill several holes,

and wait till the crowd showed up. Soon everyone was making their way onto the ice. Now, Fred would holler, hold up a large fish, then lay it on the ice. Pretty soon a small group gathered around Fred asking if they could fish close by. Children too became excited. A young lad and his sister, the one

with a blue bunny snowsuit and moon boots wanted to be shown how to fish like that. Fred brought another beauty the ice. One chap who had walked past Fred’s old clunker van, said it smelt like old burnt paper under his hood and his black lab sniffed around the tail pipe. The excitement grew, as everyone enjoyed the day. Many anglers began fishing close to Fred’s spot in hopes of catching big trout too! But as the sun began to

So under the hood, Rolf found a squirrels nest and fir cones on the top of the engine block. Next day at lake, the smell continued, and family dogs would hang round Fred’s van. Back to the garage. This time, Rolf did another check, and discovered squirrels had been packing stolen Kibbles and Bits from neighboring homes and storing it

in the van’s resonator. On returning from Judy’s cafe from having a piece of pie and coffee, Fred was shown the goodies. Rolf said, squirrels pack sunflower seeds, wheat and rabbit pellets into air breathers too, so the dog food was a first. Finally all the local hounds finally stopped following Fred’s van around town.

250.803.0224 www.wellnesschiro.net Shuswap Optometric Centre

As part of an initial examination in my office I frequently take digital x-rays in order to assess the health and alignment of each person’s spine. An all too frequent concern I have to address with my patients on their x-rays is neck posture and if their head is too far forward over their shoulders. This is called forward head posture (FHP) and can be generally assessed by looking at a person’s posture from the side. The ear canal should be located over the tip of the shoulder when you look at someone from the side. All too often it can be quite significantly forward. FHP is important to

address and correct because it leads to a wide variety of health problems. The obvious issues are that it can cause headaches, migraines, and neck and shoulder tension and pains. When I review my patient’s x-rays, I also show them that FHP shifts the center of gravity out in front of the spine instead of where it should ideally be located which is behind the spine. This is important because the discs in the neck are designed to carry only 1/3 of the weight of the head and the joints in the back of the neck ideally carry the remaining 2/3 of the head weight. When FHP occurs, the

weight shifts entirely onto the discs and results in acceleration of spinal degeneration and arthritis. Finally, even more important than the structural effects of FHP is what occurs in the nervous system. The spinal cord runs down the inside of the spine behind the vertebrae or spinal bones. When there is a normal curve in the neck, the spinal cord is on the inside of the curve and is not placed under any tension. However, FHP is caused by a straightening out of this curve or even worse, a reverse curve. Nerves and the spinal cord do not tolerate pinching pressure, however, stretching a nerve has even more significant negative health effects. It is for this reason that FHP (and increased forward flexion of

the mid back) has been shown to reduce life expectancy due to interference with function of the lungs and heart. FHP can be corrected but it takes time and commitment to a regime of structual exercises I provide to my patients. We use specific equipment that has been designed to restore proper curvature and alignment. If patients utilize their homecare equipment as part of their daily routine (everyday, 2x/ day) they begin to notice a reduction of neck tension, headaches and pain and overall improved health. In additon, be very aware of your posture while on your phone, tablet, or computer. All of these are a direct contributor to FHP (take a look at anyone around you and notice the posture of

their head/neck while on one of these devices). For those looking to help correct their posture while at home or at work, we retail to the public a device called a posture strap. It is an indiscreet and comfortable strap that hooks around your neck and shoulders and clips together behind your back. It supports good posture by keeping you upright in an anatomically correct postion while keeping your neck and shoulders drawn back instead of rounded forward. The strap is adjustable and can be used for both adults and children. If you or someone you know has FHP, contact Dr. Warren Gage for a full spinal assessment and x-rays at Harbourfront Family Chiropractic at (250) 803-0224.

According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, studies have shown that air pollution can trigger heart attacks and strokes. The threat posed by air pollution is greater among peo-

ple who have or have had coronary artery disease, angina, heart attack, bypass surgery or an angioplasty, heart failure, stroke or transient ischemic attack, or blockages in the arteries of the neck or legs. Peo-

ple who have internal cardiac defibrillators also may be at greater risk of heart attack or stroke due to air pollution. While it’s common to assume that air pollution is only a problem for people who live in

large cities, the American Heart Association warns against making such assumptions, noting that air pollution can be traced to a host of sources, including wildfires and cooking with wood stoves, that

Man hit by train Sunday

RCMP want public’s help locating motorist. Martha Wickett Shuswap Market News

A man survived being struck by a train on Sunday, Jan. 28. Cpl. Scott Linklater of the Chase RCMP Detachment reports that at 1:45 p.m. Sunday, police received a report of a pedestrian being struck by a train at the crossing at Pine Street in Chase.

RCMP assisted the CP Police Service with the investigation, which found that a 57-year-old man with mobility challenges had been walking on the sidewalk adjacent to Pine Street before crossing the CP Railway tracks. He had not fully crossed the tracks when he was struck

by a westbound train. BC Ambulance Services transported the man to Shuswap Lake General Hospital in Salmon Arm where he was treated for non-life-threatening injuries. Immediately after the collision and before the arrival of emergency personnel, a motorist drove through the

lighted barricades at the crossing causing minor damage, Linklater says. Police would like to contact the driver of the vehicle. Anyone with information regarding the motorist is asked to call the CP Police Service at 1-800-716-9132 or the Chase RCMP at 250-679-3221.

Heat achieve their goals on weekend In some exciting hockey, the Chase squad pulls off two wins versus 100 Mile. SCOTT KOCH CONTRIBUTOR

The past weekend featured a home-andaway two-game series versus the 100 Mile House Wranglers. Friday night the 26th of January saw the Heat lineup against their opposition at the Art Holding Memorial Arena. It turned into a hard-working, gritty game between two talented and fast-skating squads. There were no pucks to be found in the nets during the first period. In the second, six goals provided a seesaw battle, starting with Zachary Fournier on the power play from Michael Fidanza and Kolten Moore. The Wranglers came right back, making it a 1-1 tie. Then the Heat popped in a pair, Fidanza from Jackson Marshall and Kaden Black, and then Fournier with his second from Seamus Collins and Jayce Schweizer. 100 Mile got a tally prior to Collins’ from Darion Nordick and Ryan Okino, making

it 4-2 after 20. In the third, Evan Hughes added to the lead from Colten Nikiforuk and Brett Alexander. Thirty-five seconds later, 100 Mile came on strong to attempt a comeback. Nikiforuk ruined that bid by netting goal number 6 from Fournier and Quinn Slezak for a 6-3 home-ice victory. Conor Webb stopped 37 of 40, some of them of the spectacular variety. It quite possibly was the best overall full-team performance of the season. On Saturday night, after pushing snow from Chase to 100 Mile, the bus arrived in the Cariboo. At the outset no one expected a goalfest but that’s what happened. Six goals in the first resulted in a 3-3 tie, Fidanza getting off to the races from Grady Musgrave and Fournier. The Cariboo Cowboys netted a pair to take the lead, but the Shuswap squad came back, Black on the man advantage from Nikiforuk and Fournier, followed by Okino from Moore and Col-

lins. With 16 seconds left in the first, 100 Mile tied the match up. In the second, the teams only managed seven, yes, seven goals to find the bullseye. Wranglers got one and Chase got two, Black again from Nordick and Pat Brady, and then big Fournier unassisted. But 100 Mile responded with a pair to retake the lead. Black made it a hat trick with his third from Fidanza and Nikiforuk to make it a 6-6 tie. But the desperadoes tallied again; after 40 it was 7-6 Cariboo. In the third, the tuckered troops only managed five goals in their frenzy to 10. 100 Mile got a power-play counter prior to Chase doing the same, Fidanza from Brady and Black. Then the Wranglers took a 9-7 lead. But a reappearance of the Cardiac Kids from Chase reared its pretty face. With 2:44 left, veteran Fournier from Fidanza made it a one-goal game. With 21 seconds left and the goalie pulled, Nikifo-

Opinion

Friday, February 2, 2018 Page A33

Aung San Suu Kyi and the Rohingya crisis GLOBAL VIEWS Gwynne Dyer Nobel Peace Prize winners sometimes go on to undistinguished later careers, and some seem to have got the prize by mistake. Barack Obama, for example. But there has never before been one who went on to become a genocidal criminal. Aung San Suu Kyi, Burma’s elected leader, richly deserved the Nobel Peace Prize for her thirty-year non-violent campaign (much of it spent under house arrest) to restore democracy in the country. Two years ago, when she finally became the de facto prime minister, her reputation was as high as that of Nelson Mandela. Hardly anybody had noticed an interview she gave in 2013 in which she said that Buddhists in Rakhine province live in fear of “global Muslim power”. You know, the same global power that lets Muslims dominate the world’s refugee camps. (Muslims make up three-quarters of the world’s refugees, although only a quarter of the world’s population.) Back then, this was merely a bizarre remark and Suu Kyi was still a saint. The Muslims of Rakhine state, known as Rohingya, were having a hard time at the hands of the authorities, but it wasn’t her fault, and there was no ethnic cleansing yet. There is now, however, and she is fully complicit in it. When at least 7,000 Rohingya have been murdered, thousands more have been raped, and 700,000 have fled across the border into Bangladesh, leaving behind another half-million of whom many are in ‘internment centres’ (concentration camps), you can legitimately call it

ethnic cleansing. Or genocide, if you want to get legalistic about it. The Burmese government claims that the Rohingya are really illegal immigrants from Bangladesh. It even refuses to use the familiar word ‘Rohingya’ any more, insisting on referring to them only as ‘Bengalis’ or ‘Bengali terrorists’. That is a despicable lie. Rakhine state, between the Arakan mountains and the Indian Ocean, was a separate empire until the Burmese army came over the mountains and conquered it in the late 18th century. Most of its people spoke a dialect of Burmese, but a big minority spoke Rohingya, an

Indo-Aryan language related to Bengali. The Rohingya have been in Rakhine at least since the 1660s. The fact that they were Muslims posed no problem for the Buddhist kingdom of Arakan (Rakhine), which was heavily influenced by the Islamic sultanates of eastern India. The Burmese conquerors of Rakhine, and the British empire that followed, didn’t see the Rohingya as a problem either. The independent Burmese republic founded in 1948 was different from the start. Only two-thirds of Burma’s 53 million people are Bamar (ethnic Burmese), but most of the other ethnic groups share the same Buddhist religion. Nation-building requires a common identity, so Buddhism got the emphasis – and

the Rohingya, as Muslims, were automatically excluded. Bit by bit the military regime that had seized power in 1962 took away the Rohingyas’ land rights, their civil rights, and in 1982 even their citizenship. They were redefined as illegal immigrants, and the local Buddhist population launched occasional pogroms against them. The anti-Rohingya policy always played well with Bamar nationalists, who are obsessed with the alleged threat posed by Islam. (Only 4 percent of the country’s population is Muslim, and only half the Muslims are Rohingya.) It’s the one regime policy that is genuinely popular with most of the population, so the army resorts to it whenever it hits a rough patch. It’s losing power now, so it reflexively turns to the

old remedy again. Two years ago you could still argue that a wobbly democratic government led by Aung San Suu Kyi had to pick its battles carefully. The Rohingya was one that it couldn’t win, so best avoid it and let the military have its way. But that was before it turned into a fullblown genocide last August. Tactical calculations of political advantage cannot justify mass murder, and it has become clear that Suu Kyi is willing to ignore mass murder if the victims are Muslims. Former US ambassador to the United Nations Bill Richardson, who has known her for more than 30 years, is close to despair. “She’s changed,” he told CNN last week. “She’s become, unfortunately, a politician afraid of the military

and afraid to make the tough decisions to resolve one of the worst humanitarian crises in history.” And (although Richardson didn’t say this), she also probably feels the same unjustified hatred and fear towards the Rohingyas, and Muslims in general, as the general population. Meanwhile, the 700,000 Rohingyas suffering in rudimentary refugee camps in Bangladesh have been told that they can start going home next month, but people who have seen their villages razed and family members raped, shot or burned to death are a bit reluctant to trust the Burmese army. Especially when they have no guarantee that they won’t end up in grim ‘detention centres’ back in Rakhine. Taking the Nobel Peace Prize back from

Aung San Suu Kyi wouldn’t help matters in Rakhine at all, but it would do the standing of the prize a lot of good. -Gwynne Dyer is an independent journalist whose articles are published in 45 countries.
