Drivers get the ‘don’t drink’ message Salmon Arm RCMP say more people relying on designated drivers. Martha Wickett Salmon Arm Observer

The message of ‘Don’t drink and drive’ appears to have made an impact on most drivers in Salmon Arm. In the last three months of 2017, three people were charged with impaired driving, as opposed to 17 in the last quarter of 2016.

“Numbers are down, we’ve noticed that,” said Staff Sgt. Scott West, while presenting his year-end, quarterly policing report to city council. “We’ve watched our impaired drivers drop; there are more designated drivers than ever before.” The numbers for immediate roadside prohibitions (IRPs) were higher in 2017

than the criminal code charges, 15 in the last quarter of 2017 and 18 in the same period in 2016. West said local police are going more with the provincial Motor Vehicle Act roadside prohibitions rather than pushing charges through the courts. The provincial government introduced the IRP

program in 2010 with the goal of reducing impaired driving fatalities in the province. Police did 311 traffic stops in the last three months of 2017, with 43 high-risk driving charges laid such as distracted driving or excessive speed. Regarding the Trans-Canada Highway, West recounted how a driver was

pulled over for a cell phone ticket, but the officer smelled pot in the vehicle and so the driver was charged with that, then a handgun was discovered as well as several more charges from other jurisdictions. “It’s wondrous what we have rolling through our community,” he quipped. Coun. Tim Lavery

asked about mental health-related calls, inquiring if the number of calls has improved since a year ago. West said he hasn’t done research why, but “we’ve noticed a reduction over levels from not last summer but the summer before. We were seeing quite a number Continued on A3

Classic car collector seeks participants for show Auto-fanatic Mike Hall wants some high-octane relics to revitalize on camera.

Jodi Brak Salmon Arm Observer

Mike Hall, a resident of Tappen, is seeking to breathe new life into retro automobiles and show his work to the world in a new television program. Also known as ‘The Rasta Blasta,’ a nickname given to him by local high-school students in light of his iconic dreadlocks and his day job blasting out dangerous slopes with dynamite, Hall is a self-proclaimed classic car junkie and hopes to share his passion with others through a new show called Rusty Rasta’s Restorations. Participants will be featured on the show alongside the vehicle they choose to have restored, whether it be their own car or one to be brought to

life from Hall’s vast personal collection of vehicles dating back to the early 1900’s. “You can choose from one of the over 400 cars waiting on our lot, or bring us your own car,” reads an ad for the show. “We will do a beautiful restoration at a price you’ll love, and document the entire process on television.” Hall’s home has achieved its own brand of infamy through the large collection of classic cars which sit mostly dormant on the property. Many of the vehicles sitting in Hall’s yard are timeless collector’s pieces and range from a fully restored bright-orange 1973 Dodge Challenger to custom motorcycles and rusted out parts-cars whose old

motors are just waiting for a new home. What some of these vehicles might lack in shiny new paint-jobs they more than make up for in nostalgia value for dedicated collectors. Several of the vehicles restored from Hall’s property can also be found on display at the White Post Auto Museum, north of Tappen on the Trans-Canada Highway. Hall says it is too early to release details about the program and attempts to contact the show’s producer have been unsuccessful. Anyone interested can submit an application to be a part of the show through the Rusty Rasta Restorations website: www. rustyrastarestorations. castingcrane.com/

Mike Hall, also known as ‘The Rasta Blasta,’ is the man behind Rusty Rasta’s Restorations, a TV show about restoring classic cars to be produced near Tappen. Hall is pictured here among just a few of the more than 400 classic cars which have made his property well known. (Facebook / Mike Hall)

Violent crime down from the past two years Continued from A1 of mental health calls – both us and the hospital were at a point of having to shift people elsewhere, sometimes five files a day.” He said the critical care phase wasn’t reached in 2017 where police were intervening and taking people to hospital. In terms of violent crime in Salmon Arm, West said it’s down over previous years, but vehicle crime is up. Although he didn’t provide overall numbers for violent crime, he did say the statistics

Staff Sgt. Scott West RCMP

are showing a “typical cyclical fall trend downward,” and the 2017 stats are lower than 2015 and 2016 levels. Assaults for the last

quarter of 2017 were tallied at 10, with 17 in same period of 2016. Sexual offences and domestic violence are recorded separately. There were four sexual offences recorded in the last three months of 2017, compared to

two in the same period in 2016. Twenty-three domestic violence files were recorded in the last quarter of 2017, with 28 in the last three months of 2016. Mischief to property and thefts from vehicles were up, while

reports of break and enters to residents and businesses remained low, West said. There were 33 thefts from vehicles recorded in the last quarter of 2017, similar to 2016’s 29. Just two break and enters to homes

and businesses were recorded in October through December of 2017, down one from the three recorded in the same period in 2016. Files involving alcohol and/or drugs tallied the highest num-

bers in the last quarters of both 2017 and 2016 – 174 in 2017 and 190 in 2016. Overall in 2017, police received 5,208 calls for service, up five per cent over 2016 and up eight per cent over 2015.

Meet Up showcases tech-industry in the Shuswap Third-annual event hopes to inspire students to consider innovative careers. Jodi Brak Salmon Arm Observer

The Salmon Arm Economic Development Society hosted their third annual Technology Meet Up at the Salmon Arm Secondary School’s Sullivan Campus on Feb. 20. The event is a chance for students who are considering a career in the technology industries to explore the many options available to them in the Okanagan region. Lana Fitt, economic development manager for Salmon Arm, says the Technology Meet Up is a chance to “engage students who want to consider technology as a career path and create awareness of the diverse cluster of technology companies in the area.” Between 600-800 students from across the district were expected to attend the event,

which featured booths from local businesses, innovators and educators from Thompson Rivers University and Okanagan College’s trades and technology programs. Students and community members could check out displays focusing on creative and cutting-edge technologies such as digital design, robotics, 3-D printing, digital photography and videography, as well as more practical devices. For example, Tim Mosher of Raptor Integration Inc. was on hand to display an x-ray laser scanner which checks lumber for quality and integrity, an example of how modern technology is being integrated into what might have once been considered low-tech trades. The event was also a chance to showcase information regarding the

Salmon Arm Economic Development Society’s upcoming Makerspace project. When completed, the downtown facility will offer access to cutting edge technology such as 3-D printers, robotics software, digital animation tools and other high-tech goodies. There will also be workshops planned every few weeks to give

education on the use of these technologies. While Fitt notes this new space for innovation in Salmon Arm will be mostly geared towards students, she says membership and access to the full range of resources offered at the Makerspace will be available to anyone “from the hobbyist to the inventor.” Tim Mosher, director of sales and operations with Raptor Integration, came out to the third annual Technology Meet Up at the Salmon Arm Secondary School’s Sullivan atrium to show off how new scanning technology helps the building industries to ensure the safety and integrity of building materials.

Speak up on ALR The B.C. government is hosting public engagement talks soon on the state and future of the Agricultural Land Reserve. It doesn’t hurt to speak up and make your voice heard in times like these. The ALR is one of the defining institutions of this province, particularly of its rural farming communities, and of outer suburbs like Langley, Abbotsford, Chilliwack, Pitt Meadows and Maple Ridge. If the ALR had not been implemented in the 1970s, it’s not hard to imagine what the Lower Mainland would look like today. Vast areas of what is today green space would have been chewed up and turned into housing. We have had plenty of suburban development over the years. But we also still have hundreds of working farms, some a stone’s throw from busy subdivisions, schools, and shopping malls. The Lower Mainland has better food security today because of the ALR. Everything from poultry and hogs to dairy cattle to hay, hops, grapes, corn, and hothouse vegetables comes from our very own Fraser Valley farms. The ALR has also given those of us who don’t live on farms the opportunity to experience the countryside, often a short walk or bike ride from our front doors. Yet there is continuous pressure to remove land from the ALR. The reasons often sound solid. Housing is in short supply and expensive, and the ALR is one part of that equation. But once buried in cement and asphalt, farmland is gone. Now would be a good time to remind our leaders of that vital fact. -Langley Advance

On those occasions when I do actually manage to get a fish on, well, all I care about is the moment. When I’m fighting a fish, it’s just me and the fish – the eternal struggle of predator and prey. In those minutes I find myself responding to some primordial instinct, some ancient need to pit myself against nature. Nothing else matters. All I know for sure is that when I’m standing knee-deep in the fast flowing waters of a river or stream somewhere, casting my centre-pin rod to a salmon or steelhead, I’m happy and I’m content. There’s nothing more exciting than tying into a bright, shiny, silver 10-pound spring-run salmon or a winter-run steelhead that hits like a freight train and steams off line like there’s no tomorrow. Of course, fighting a three-pound rainbow trout on a fouror five-weight fly rod is pretty exciting too. And then there’s hang-

ing on while a 250pound Fraser River white sturgeon tests your very fibre. They truly are magnificent creatures. (If you want to know more about white sturgeon and/ or wish to support ongoing conservation and enhancement programs, you can contact/join the Fraser River Sturgeon Conservation Society.) Which brings me back to the B.C. Sportsmen’s Show where the Sturgeon Conservation Society will likely be set up to provide information and sign up memberships. This year, while I’m chatting with the tech and sales reps and gathering brochures, I have to also make a point of stopping by and visiting the fellow who makes and sells the fudge. Who knows, this might be the year that I spring for a new steelhead rod or book myself into a fishing lodge. All I need is this week’s winning lottery ticket and this will be the best Sportsmen’s Show ever.

Mayor’s report Nancy Cooper As a follow up to my recent presentation at the Chamber of Commerce luncheon, I thought I would expand on some of the upcoming projects 2018 has in store for us. We know that the cannabis legalization is imminent and there will be a role for local governments to play. It is important for council to hear what the citizens of Salmon Arm think and, as such, we will be hosting another public input session in the spring. Stay tuned for dates and times as this will be a conversation we want you to be

a part of. Also, we want to congratulate Salmon Arm Economic Development Society for bringing our Innovation Centre to life. A grand opening will be happening shortly and we can hardly wait! This was a remarkable undertaking which was made possible by a tremendous amount of work and collaboration. It is an amazing asset to our community and I encourage you to check it out. The Branding Project, also led by Salmon Arm Economic Development Society, is also

the four-laning and new Salmon River bridge project. As we are all aware, these improvements will make travelling the TCH through Salmon Arm a lot safer. This year we will continue to hear more about the abandoned CP rail line, the Rail Trail, as it moves forward. It is important for us all to be aware that this is a long-term project with funding for the acquisition being the first step. What makes this project so unique is the unprecedented collaboration between multiple jurisdictions, the Columbia Shuswap Regional district and all its members, the North Okanagan Regional district and all its members as well as the Splatsin Indian Band. We have

found working together we can achieve great things such as the Rail Trail project. Watch for information sessions regarding the Ross Street Underpass and do plan to attend. Our engineers will be there to answer any and all questions you may have on this project. Salmon Arm has once again been short-listed for an award; we are in the top three competitors, up for an Open For Business award. Erin Jackson, the City Corporate Officer and I will be heading to Vancouver for the gala event this Friday. Wish us luck! To top all of this off, construction projections remain strong. It’s a really exciting time to call Salmon Arm home.

Considering the future of russia GLoBaL VIeWs Gwynne Dyer Why wait another month to report on the Russian election when we can wrap it up right now? Vladimir Putin is going to win another six years in power by a landslide – probably between 60 per cent and 70 per cent of the popular vote. The real question is what happens after that, because he will be 72 by the end of his next term and not legally be to run for president again. Putin doesn’t take chances, so he has barred opposition leader Alexei Navalny from standing in the election by having the obedient courts convict him of fraud on a trumped-up charge. Not that Navalny ever threatened to beat Putin, who is genuinely popular in Russia, but none of the other presidential candidates in this election are even serious contenders. Their only function is to make the election look legitimate.

First up is Ksenia Sobchak, a former TV ‘reality’ show host whose wealth and establishment links (her father Anatoly was the mayor of St. Petersburg and Putin’s political mentor) have earned her the mocking title of ‘Russia’s Paris Hilton’. She’s liberal, pro-gay, all the things that Putin isn’t, but she is nevertheless seen as his preferred opponent, and not to be taken seriously. Certainly the youthful Communist candidate, Pavel Grudinin, the boss of a former collective farm enterprise called Lenin State Farm, is not to be taken seriously. Neither is Vladimir Zhirinovsky, a raving ultra-nationalist. Putin will win in a walk – and yet Russia is a modern, well-educated country with a democratic constitution. It must take charge of its own affairs, but when and how?

Russia is in an unending political holding pattern, forever circling the destination of democracy but unable to land. It’s easy to explain how it got into this dead-end, much harder to see how it gets out of it. The collapse of more than 70 years of Communist dictatorship in 1987-91 left most Russians in a state of shock. The young felt liberated, the older generation was apprehensive, but nobody quite knew what to do next. The first and last truly competitive elections were held in that period, but by the mid-1990s the oligarchs (mostly ex-Communists) were back in the saddle. The oligarchs had ‘privatised’ the formerly state-owned economy into their own pockets (with a little help from the local mafia), and they had co-opted President Boris Yeltsin as their front-man. Freely elected and once popular for his dramatic defence of democracy in the attempted Communist come-back coup of 1991, Yeltsin was a drunken and corrupt

wreck of a man by the time of the 1996 election. He ‘won’ that election thanks to massive Western and particularly US intervention in support of their favoured candidate (the traffic goes both ways), but his mismanagement of the economy wiped out the savings of most Russians and brought democracy itself into disrepute. Down to this day many Russians associate the word ‘democracy’ with the lawless and violent chaos of the ‘90s. Putin, Yeltsin’s chosen successor, has maintained his popularity through 18 years in power because he has provided Russians with what they wanted above all: a fair degree of stability and predictability in their lives. Living standards for most Russians are probably still below what they were in late Soviet times, but they were slowly but steadily rising from their 1990s nadir until the collapse of oil prices three years ago. He is for all practical purposes a dictator, of course, although

by Russian historical standards a fairly non-violent one. And he has always meticulously observed the constitutional rules, even leaving the presidency and serving as prime minister in 2008-12 in order to comply with the ban on more than two consecutive presidential terms. It sometimes feels like Putin, for all his faults, sees himself as a caretaker leader until Russia is strong and stable enough to try democracy again. He has certainly been careful to leave the entire legal structure of democracy in place, although he manipulates it ruthlessly for his own short-term purposes. And the great unanswered question is: how would a post-Putin Russia revive the democratic experiment it embarked on in 198991, in the face of certain opposition from the oligarchs who benefit so greatly from current arrangements?

South Shuswap B.C. chambers celebrate accomplishments

Page A8 Friday, February 23, 2018

February 19 marks the beginning of Chamber of Commerce week in B.C., an opportunity for the more than 125 chambers of commerce in the province to showcase their true grit, business insight and sense of community. Chambers, and their members, are the people who power B.C. Whether that means acting as a cheerleader or loyal advocate on behalf of their members, or stepping in at the right moment with a best-fit benefit or tailored resource, chambers and boards of trade have been supporting businesses in B.C. for well over a century. This week is all about celebrating that fact. The importance of

Salmon Arm Observer/Shuswap Market News

chambers and boards of trade are also recognized by local and provincial governments, with the B.C. government once again issuing an official proclamation to celebrate the week. Every day, chambers actively strengthen local businesses through networking events, mentorship opportunities, professional development activities and community engagement. Whether hosting events and business awards, supporting young entrepreneurs, or organizing unique travel experiences for companies interested in learning more about different international markets, chambers know what’s on B.C.’s mind.

These types of changes support economic growth and create jobs for many businesses and entrepreneurs in the province and cannot be done without the insight provided by the Chambers of Commerce in B.C. As B.C. celebrates Chamber Week 2018, we encourage you to contact the South Shuswap Chamber of Commerce if you are not already a member. Recognized and awarded as the Chamber of Change at the B.C.

SOUTH SHUSWAP CHAMBER OF COMMERCE

Chambers have their finger on the pulse of business and can provide keen insight when advocating to the government on the important issues that face their members. This year, Chamber Week celebrates the success of some chamber’s advocacy efforts. For example, the provincial government has reinstated the small business tax benefit for credit unions. In many communities, credit unions are the only source of local busi-

DISTRICT OF SICAMOUS

ness financing. Keeping the credit union tax rate low ensures sufficient dollars flow into community businesses, allowing new and established businesses to secure investment dollars. Another example is the phase-out of the PST charged on electricity bills for businesses. This will translate into immediate savings for business owners, allowing them to invest back into their own operations. Whether you’re a mining company or a dry cleaner, this

will make a difference. Chambers’ knowledge of their members, their local economy and their communities helped form advocacy efforts around amending Agricultural Land Reserve regulations to provide much-needed balance for B.C. farmers and small businesses, particularly in the craft brewery and distillery industries. We especially can all raise a glass (of craft beer or cider) to that as the South Shuswap Chamber of Commerce

Support through weight loss TOPS group helps participants be accountable.

CARRIERS WANTED

friendS & neighbourS Leah Blain One day when Anne Gosse was in her doctor’s office he looked at her and said, “too heavy.” That was motivation enough to get her look for some kind of a support group. She joined TOPS, Take Off Pounds Sensibly in the North Shuswap . By the time she joined, she had lost some weight, but she was 164 lbs. When Anne moved to Salmon Arm she joined the 1767 chapter that meets every Tuesday morning at St. John’s Anglican church. This year she celebrated 40 years of weight loss success with TOPS. Anne says she couldn’t have achieved this goal without them. She went from size 18 to size eight. “It was the support I got. They encourage you to stick with it.” Marge Quinton has been at her goal weight for 21 years. She says she usually has her sign with her, ‘No excuse zone.’ In essence, that’s what TOPS is all about, people taking responsibility for their eating choices. Marge gives a couple of examples of popular excuses: “‘It was someone’s birthday’, or ‘Someone bought me a box of chocolates.’ People don’t take responsibil-

ity for gaining.” With TOPS, Marge says it’s not just the weekly meeting where members get support and encouragement, they phone each other throughout the week to encourage each other. Before the meeting begins the members go in for their weekly weigh-in. When the meeting begins when their names are read out the member says “up” or “down” corresponding to their weight gain or loss. If it’s “down” the group gives a round of applause, if it’s “up” they get a chorus of “next week” or “keep trying” or “you can do it.”

I thought, ‘If they can do it I can do it.’ It was fun. I did it.

Anne Gosse TOPS member

In January, the 31 members whose ages range from 30s to 80s, had 31.2 lbs net loss. After this, and before the meeting starts officially, they have a few minutes of sharing time. Members talk about anything they

There is a lot of laughter. Anne is usually too shy to share but today she talks about the nice walk she had with her family. She climbed over logs and went under logs with the rest of them. “I thought, ‘If they can do it I can do it.’ It was fun. I did it,’” she says smiling. The room is very beautifully decorated in a Scottish theme in honour of another member of Scottish origin who is celebrating seven years at her goal weight. Once a member has reached their goal weight, they’re

called a KOPS member (Keep Off Pounds Sensibly) Anne, being the most senior member of KOPS, lights the first candle and then, in turn, lights other candles. They recite their pledge: “I am an intelligent person. I will control my emotions, not let my emotions control me. Every time I am tempted to use food to satisfy my frustrated desires, build up my injured ego or dull my senses. I will remember - I am an example of Keep Off Pounds Sensibly.” For more information about this TOPS chapter, contact Carolyn Vrieling at 250-8328416.

Eating like an Olympian has drawbacks HEaltHy bitEs Serena Caner Olympic fever has arrived, leaving us inspired to pursue our favourite sports. However, when I think about being an Olympian, what interests me most is the opportunity to taste the local cuisine of the host country. What better way than exercise to stimulate a great appetite and well-earned meal? My Olympic visit would include visiting interesting restaurants and sweet talking the local security guards for the best street vendors or lesser-known gems.

Important Korean sentences to practice would include, “Which way to the best Korean BBQ? Beebimbap?” However, the food reality of being an Olympian is extremely disappointing. First of all, most Olympians are weight conscious. Ski jumpers, for example, eat as little as 1,300 calories per day. Unfortunately, the lighter you are, the farther you fly, so they aim to weigh ten pounds less than usual prior to competition. Figure skaters share a similar reality, where

lightness allows them to jump high or be tossed across the ice. In fact, their dinner plate looks similar to the “plate” we promote in diabetes management: three ounces of lean protein, 3/4 cup whole grain and the rest…vegetables. The second disappointment is that diet experimentation during competition is not recommended. When a split second can make the difference between winning and losing, nothing is left to chance. Food is deemed so important to the athlete’s performance that this year, Team USA shipped all their food and equipment – weighing hundreds of pounds – to South Korea.

However, the food reality of being an Olympian is extremely disappointing. First of all, most Olympians are weight conscious. Ski jumpers, for example, eat as little as 1,300 calories per day.

While to me, this seems rude and counter to the Olympic spirit “to build a peaceful and better world which requires mutual understanding with a spirit of friendship, solidarity and fair play,”

it is how they mitigate their perceived risk of foodborne illness and gastrointestinal upset. Luckily for me, I will never be an Olympian. Travelling across the world, only to eat your own food in limited quantities seems like a wasted opportunity. However, seeing how Olympians eat, is a reminder of how important nutrition is to health and performance. If you would like to eat along with the Olympians, Team USA has their own website with recipes: https://www.teamusa. org/cookingwithteamusa/recipes.

In 1990, Kim’s father (Merv Siegrist) and mother Anne moved to Sicamous to become partners. 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.

Main Street Bridge supporters speak up Sicamous residents rally for the four-lane and Main Street option on upgrade. Lachlan Labere Salmon Arm Observer

Brenda Dalzell is reluctant to just assume a Main Street bridge will be constructed. The Sicamous resident and business owner is rallying other like-minded individuals who want a Main Street bridge to speak up and be heard by the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure. “We’re just kind of making a stand, making it visual, standing up for our option, because MOTI is only giving us until the 18th,” said Dalzell. She was referring to the Feb. 18 deadline for public input on the two Bruhn Bridge replacement options proposed by the ministry: a fivelane bridge or a fourlane bridge with an additional bridge on

It’s something we’ve needed for years and years,” said Charleston. Inkx Design Solutions owner Tia Lemieux said a Main Street bridge would be a catalyst for needed growth. “My reasons behind this is I’ve been30 here pt so Font Size: long and we haven’t seen a lot of growth in Sicamous,” said Lemieux. “We don’t want to just be a bedroom commu-

nity, we want to be a self-sufficient community so we can support our residents here, our seniors… I feel with the improvement of putting a bridge across, it is a focal point to downtown and it is just the beginning of growth for our community.” A petition in support of the four-lane/Main Street bridge option is currently available at Inkx on Main Street. Dalzell plans to submit that information to MOTI by the Feb. 18 deadline for public input. Results of MOTI survey conducted between Nov. 15, 2016 and Jan. 15, 2017 show a majority of respondents (65 per cent) were in favour of the five-lane bridge, while 35 per cent were in favour of the four lane/ Main Street bridge.

Ranchero / Deep Creek Official Community Plan Amendment (CSRD) Bylaw No. 750-02 is a set of amendments to the objectives, policies, and designations in the current Official Community Plan (OCP). This amendment is required to ensure that the OCP is consistent with the proposed new zoning bylaw. What is Ranchero / Deep Creek Zoning Bylaw No. 751?

The trails at Margaret Falls before the 2017 flooding which caused extensive damage to the popular attraction. The trail was marked as closed indefinitely on June 2, 2017, with a target of reopening by June 2019.

Margaret Falls trails likely to be closed through 2018 Jodi Brak Salmon Arm Observer

A popular destination for residents and visitors to the Shuswap region looks to remain closed through the 2018 hiking season. Margaret Falls is a scenic trail network located within the Herald Provincial Park that fell victim to the effects of heavy spring runoff and mudslide conditions in the past year. The trail was listed as ‘indefinitely closed’ as of June 2, 2017 and, despite cleanup efforts on the part of the B.C. Ministry of Environment, the trail system remains in rough shape as of early 2018.

Phil McIntyre-Paul, executive director of the Shuswap Trail Alliance, says “we work really closely with BC parks, but because it was such a major impact last season, the repair is huge. They’re having to work through their capital budget program to repair the trail, so I suspect it will be this season or next season, though I’ve heard it sounding more like 2019 before they get the place totally repaired.” The 2017 flooding of the area caused extensive damage to the trail system at Margaret Falls, completely destroying sections of the

trail, tearing bridges from their foundations and even rerouting the river in some locations. McIntyre-Paul adds, “the good news is that there is lots of new trails to explore across the Shuswap so we’re trying to get word out that they shouldn’t stay away. Margaret Falls will be spectacular but won’t necessarily be repaired right away. That’s part of the flood and the unprecedented events of last season that are taking their toll.” The ministry released a statement saying, “the trail and facilities will require an engineers assessment and estimate prior to any

remedial work being completed, which will take place once current water levels begin to recede.” Adding, “there is a high likelihood that the trail will not be available for public use this season.” The ministry’s target date for reopening of the trails at Margaret Falls is June 2019, with an estimated cost of $300,000 to bring the it back to acceptable public safety conditions. Further updates may be found on the Ministry of Environment or BC Parks website as work continues and more information is made available.

CSRD ups inspections Jim Elliot Salmon Arm Observer

Inspection of new construction in the North Shuswap and the rural areas surrounding Sicamous will be stepped up in the coming months. Effective March 5, a new Columbia Shuswap Regional District bylaw implements a building inspection service in Electoral Area E. Most new construction as well as renovations, additions and demolitions of existing structures will require a building permit application to the CSRD. The permit will have to be issued prior to the beginning of construction and the building will be subject to six inspections before the project is completed.

Increased building inspections in the North Shuswap and rural Sicamous areas to begin March 5. (File photo) Property owners and those in the construction business are asked to contact the CSRD building department for questions about what kind of construction requires a permit, information required for a permit application, and other considerations related to the new bylaw. In the North Shuswap communities of Lee Creek, Scotch Creek, Celista, Anglemont,

Magna Bay and Saint Ives, the inspection process has been expanded. Inspections were formerly conducted at the pre-concrete footing construction, framing, as well as a final inspection. Additional inspections will be pre-backfill, during the underslab plumbing rough-in and after the insulation and vapour and air barrier have been installed.

Brother-sister act hope to skate to golds Kevin Mitchell Black Press

Teen phenoms now, three Vernon speed skaters will have Olympic visions on their minds before they compete in the B.C. Winter Games starting Friday in Kamloops. Nate Benn and the sister-brother act of Laura and Daniel Hall have posted multiple personal bests and podium finishes with the Vortex this season. They all plan to medal at McArthur Island Sports Centre. The Halls are from Salmon Arm but skate in Vernon. Laura Hall, who celebrated her 15th birthday on Tuesday, laughed when recalling her start in speed skating. “I tried public skating when I was about three,” said the Grade 9 Salmon Arm J.L. Jackson campus student. “Once I started speed skating, I couldn’t stand up and it took me a while to get going. I got serious about skating about three or four years ago.” Hall earned a bronze medal in the 1,500 at the B.C. Winter Games two years ago in Penticton. She has since won her age class overall at the Westerns in Edmonton, taking silver in the 3,000-Olympic distance.

Vernon Vortex skaters Laura Hall, Daniel Hall, from Salmon Arm and Nate Benn, from Vernon, are gearing up for the BC Winter Games. (Black Press File Photo) “I do better at the longer distances because I have trouble accelerating.” Her father/coach, Michael Hall, represented Canada at the 1994 Winter Games in Lillehammer. “I’d like to go as far as I can and an Olympic medal would be the main goal. Having my dad as coach is great. If I’m being lazy, he pushes me.” A trumpet player in the school jazz band,

Laura also plays fullback in Rep soccer. Daniel Hall turns 13 on Sunday and this will be his first Winter Games experience. The Grade 7 Shuswap Middle School student bypassed public skating right into the speed sport. “I was three and I was holding on to the boards all the time and having someone behind me in case I fell,” recalled Daniel, who

will race four events and the Zone 2 relay in Kamloops. He earned silver medals at the Quebec age-class nationals and the Fort St. John provincials. As for cross-training, he said: “I play soccer, left midfield. I played House last year but I want to play Rep this year. It’s good to keep up my endurance for skating. I definitely wanna make the Olympics.”

Your Health &

Wellness

INFORMATION DESIGNED TO PROMOTE AND ENHANCE YOUR WELLBEING

Fix your gut - part 1 FAMILY CHIROPRACTIC Dr. Warren Gage When many people hear about looking after their gut, they may expect to learn the newest fitness craze to give you a set of 6-pack abs. However, this week the gut I am referencing is your digestive tract. The gut is one of the most important organs because it is the barrier between the internal aspect of the body and the external environment. A proper functioning gut is imperative for good health as it prevents foreign invaders such as bugs and unwanted proteins from entering the body. Improper function of the gut, or “leaky gut” leads to many serious health challenges such as inflammatory bowel disease and cholera. In January my team and I attended a chiropractic wellness seminar called California Jam and one of the speakers was and MD named Zach Bush who specializes in helping people restore proper gut health. Some of the statistics he provided were enlightening and at the same time shocking. Some of the shockers were that 7.7 million pounds of antibiotics are prescribed each year. Which has a massive effect on gut health. Antibiotics wipe out the good bacteria in your gut

and need to be replenished with probiotics to keep everything internally balanced and functioning correctly. Another fact I was not aware of was that Glyphosate, the main chemical in toxic Roundup that is sprayed on so many GMO and non-GMO crops, is actually patented as an antibiotic, not a weed killer. Sadly, 4.5 Billion pounds of this antibiotic chemical is sprayed on our food and soils each year around the world resulting in a sterilization of the soil by wiping out the normal bacteria naturally found in soils. Considering this, no wonder the health of the public has been on a steady decline over the past few decades. When the natural bacteria in soils are eliminated, they can no longer produce the foods that plants require through their root systems. Further, the human body is the only organism that cannot make all of the amino acids that are required for survival. 9 of the amino acids are called “essential” which means they have to be eaten because we cannot produce them ourselves and they all come from bacteria found in the soil. With

Marla Beblow

all the Glyphosate now polluting our world, it’s no wonder we are all becoming so sick. The other way Glyphosate is devastating human health is it is known to seriously disrupt the permeability of the gut and impairs the protective function of the gut. This means glyphosate opens the spaces between the cells in the gut and allows toxins and proteins to enter the blood stream. When these materials enter the body they cause a long list of health problems, especially chronic inflammation. In an attempt to not overload you with information, I am going to carry on this topic next week and discuss how to help your body defend itself and heal from chronic inflammation. The takeaway from this article, start

eating organic and when our Canadian weather permits, grow your own food for your family. We hear the constant complaint from people that it’s “expensive” to eat organic. My question to you is, what is your health worth? We all take it for granted until it is gone, then you will mortage your house and spend your life savings trying to restore it. Prevention is key. Dr. Warren Gage is a family wellness Chiropractor who can be reached at Harbourfront Family Chiropractic at (250) 8030224.

Cyberbullying

What is cyberbullying? Bullying through electronic means. There are many forms, including harassment, inpersonation, outing, cyberstalking, and denigration, but all exist – at least in part – in the digital world. Cyberbullying can often feel even more overwhelming that traditional bullying, because access to a target is 24/7. If you think you’re being targeted online, or know of a friend who may be involved, take a look at the following steps to help you stay safe online. And most importantly, THINK before you post.

B.C. Conservation officers: a bit of history ShuSwap OutdOOrS Hank Shelley It was a bright, sunny, fall Alabama morning. Game warden Jeff decided to go quail hunting. (Dove/quail hunting in the southern U.S. is very popular). Loading the dog and shotgun in the pick up, he headed out. Arriving home, as the sun was setting across rolling fields of green, his wife met him at the kitchen door, saying the

quail season opened next day. He phoned his boss, that evening, and turned himself in, relinquishing his birds and shotgun. He paid the fine. Now that’s dedication to the job. Ask any conservation officer (C.O.) about his love of the outdoors and doing what he enjoys most, and it’s helping to protect the province’s fish,

game and natural resources. Going back a stretch, the old-time game warden’s started with Brian Williams as head. Over time, more wardens where hired, with volunteer deputies. Then the provincial police, took an active role in protecting our fish and game, many men being war vets. Into the 1950’s, it became the B.C. Fish and Game branch. The Okanagan-Shuswap had game wardens, who we as kids became quite familiar with, sneaking home with

a .22 stuffed down a pant leg, and a brace of grouse or pheasants, in a burlap sack. Or being chased down a creek from snaring spawning kokanee at Mill creek or Mission Creek in Kelowna. Don Ellis was warden then, Alan Frisby, was in Vernon. His buddies on ride-alongs were Eddie Field and Les Viel, who had a sport shop and guns smithing venture. Don Cameron was Samon Arm’s fist warden, followed by Don Sharpe. In the 1980’s Les Molnar took over. Les, and I as a patrol-

man for DFO at the time, had RCMP officer John Ollinger on duty as migratory bird man. We did many patrols together and many fish and game busts along the way. After much lobbying by Salmon Arm Fish and Game club, and other organizations, we finally got another C.O. in Pat McCharg. Pat transferred to Invermere, and retired there. For the many who watch Backwoods Justice on TV (A game warden and police series) it shows how far some people will go to take game, fish or wood

Changes are happening in our woods, affecting the animals and birds that live there.

When she declined the ride, the man became aggressive and forcefully told her to get into the vehicle. She ran to a nearby residence and he drove off. The suspect is described as approximately 40 years old, Caucasian, with a balding

hairline, dark-coloured hair on the sides, sideburns which extended to his moustache and a goatee. Parents at Haldane Elementary and Chase Secondary schools were contacted that night by the schools to inform them so they would be able to speak to their children about safety. Dave MacDonald, principal at Chase Secondary, said teachers at the high school have also been talking

to their students, encouraging them to walk in pairs, not to walk with ear buds and to remain aware of their surroundings.

Playoffs arrive, Heat finish second Scott Koch Observer contributor

After a 47-game regular season, the second season has arrived! The Chase Heat finished second in the Doug Birks Division and will enjoy homeice advantage versus the 100 Mile House Wranglers. Tickets are adults $12, seniors and students $10 and kids under six free. The best of seven series schedule is: Friday, Feb. 23 – Art Holding Memorial Arena, Chase Saturday, Feb. 24 – Art Holding Memorial Arena Monday, Feb. 26 – South Cariboo Rec Center, 100 Mile House Tuesday, Feb. 27 – South Cariboo Rec Center * Thursday, March 1 – Art Holding Memorial Arena * Friday, March 2 – South Cariboo Rec Center * Saturday, March 3 – Art Holding Memorial Arena * If necessary All games, 7 p.m. start. So the Heat ensured a second-place finish

with a win over the Kamloops Storm in Chase on Friday the 16th. No scoring in the first, but Pat Brady on the power play got the party started in the second. Kamloops tied things up before the end of 40 minutes, but then they were stymied after that. The Heat banged in a pair in the third from Colton Nikiforuk and Michael Fidanza for a 3-1 victory. Conor Webb closed the door for 52 minutes until he was concussed on a dangerous goaltender interference infraction. Jared Breitkreuz went in for eight minutes to deny the Storm any thoughts of a comeback. On Saturday the 17th, Chase crawled through a nasty winter blizzard to 100 Mile House to play a meaningless game versus the Wranglers. The Heat scored first, Brady again, but 100 Mile popped a pair for a first period lead. The teams traded goals in the second, with Evan Hughes doing the honours for Chase.

With the Chase Heat up 1-0 in the second period on Friday, Feb. 16 at the Art Holding Memorial Arena, goalie Conor Webb closes the five hole, denying Kamloops Storm’s Curtis Magas. Chase would go on to down the Storm 3-1. (Rick Koch photo) fended off 42 of 46 to give the Heat a chance. Odds and sods: Zachary Fournier is the leading scorer for the Heat (20 goals, 39 assists, 59 points), Brady was two points back (20g, 37a, 57pts.). Fournier was 10th overall in the KIJHL with Brady at 14th, the top scoring defenceman in the league. Grady Musgrave finished 15th in the sin bin with 132 minutes. Kaden Black popped in 25 goals to lead the Heat in that category. The Heat finished

third overall on the power play and 11th on the penalty kill. Chili and Chilly: The arena is chilly, but the Chilli Areena Cantina Girls are celebrating National Chili Day on Friday at Game 1. Come early and enjoy chili and a bun for $5, or a $7 chili dog in the warmth of the mezzanine. It’s an indoor tailgate party where you can get all heated up socializing with friends, neighbours and like-minded Heaters. See you there!

Three robbery suspects identified Chase has experienced a rash of robberies recently, but it appears the Mounties are getting their men. Chase RCMP investigated three robberies by different suspects over 10 days at the end of January. Two have since been arrested, reports Sgt. Barry Kennedy, and police are awaiting charge approval from the Crown regarding the third. In the meantime, the Chase & District Chamber of Commerce board has conferred with the RCMP and has compiled prevention and safety tips for business owners and their staff. Contact the chamber for the complete list. Some suggestions include: educate staff, have a working alone policy in place.

Invest in good quality cameras, and deter would-be robbers with ‘Smile, you’re on camera’ buttons. The chamber would be willing to do a group buy of cameras to help keep costs down. Consider a monitoring system with alarms or panic buttons. Have the checkout counter near the front of the store so that employees can monitor activities inside and outside. Clearly mark public and private areas and make private areas hard to access for non-employees. Keep trees near the building well-trimmed and secure fire escape ladders so that they cannot be used to access the roof. The best protection against burglary is

and

visibility - well-lit and open spaces will dissuade burglars from targeting your business. When closing your business for the evening, empty out your cash drawer and leave it open, so that they can be seen from outside to be empty. Talk to other stores

in your area. Agree on keeping an eye on each other’s stores or buildings and to watch any suspicious activity. Call the local RCMP detachment with information you have about a crime, rather than posting on Facebook. The police need information to do their job.

William “Nessâ€? Valentine Joseph Trouton February 14, 1922 ~ January 29, 2018 It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of William “Nessâ€? Valentine Joseph Trouton. Ness passed away peacefully on January 29, 2018, with his loving family by his side. Memories of Ness will forever be cherished by his family. He is remembered by his son Bill, daughter-in-law Sharen of Chase, B.C. and his granddaughters; Jaimi (Brendan), and Jenna (Brett) of Kelowna, B.C. Ness was predeceased by Merle, his loving wife, best friend and partner for 67 years. Ness was Born on Valentine’s Day, 1922, in Cedarkine (now Milner Ridge), Manitoba. It was here where he grew up and was raised by Grampy and Grannie Trouton. In 1942 moved the family to New Westminster, B.C. where Ness started his own logging business and worked throughout the province. While in the lower mainland, Ness would eventually go to work for his father’s gravel company in Surrey, working hard to help build the business. In 1946 Ness met the love of his life, Merle, and in 1948 they were married. Together they shared many wonderful experiences of baseball, playing cards, and barn dances. In 1964, Ness bought his father’s gravel company. With his dedication, Ness & Son’s Construction grew to be very successful, so in 1969 Ness sold it to buy the BCNU motel in Sicamous. In the Shuswap, Ness found a love for boating and bowling and, in 1973, he retired and moved to Salmon Arm at the young of age of 51. Ness loved his family and in 2000 he and Merle moved to Chase to be closer to them. Here he spent his time watching Jaimi and Jenna grow up. Ness helped them through 4H, watched them perform ballet and took them ďŹ shing and camping, whenever they could ďŹ t it in. Anyone that knew Ness also knew what a kind and loving man he was, he always told the best stories, and never had a bad word to say about anyone. He had a ten gallon heart, and he gave all of its capacity to the people he loved. He had a nickname for everyone, but to play it safe he would call everyone by “m’girlâ€? or “m’boyâ€?, it didn’t matter the age. Always a gentleman, and ever the romantic, we can ďŹ nd comfort knowing that Ness is smiling ear to ear right now - together again with his Merle, dancing amongst the stars. Ness’ family would like to send a heartfelt thank you to Interior Health Services, and to the Health-care professionals that were so good to Ness over the past few years. We would also like to thank our friends and family for their support. If friends so desire, a donation in lieu of owers, may be made in his memory to the Chase and District Health Unit.

Triscut is a Karakachan which is a very old Bulgarian livestock guardian breed. However, Triscut is showing signs that she may have some other breed in her. She is supposed to be a livestock guardian, Triscut is apparently afraid of most of types of farm animals and will hide in the trees rather than watch over them. Also she is not good with poultry. So what we are looking for her is farm like home but with out the animals. Triscut really enjoys people, especially just hanging out and leaning on them. She is quite content to hang out in the yard, enjoys water and swimming, likes to lay in the hay, and thinks it is fun to be high up as long as it does not involve stairs.

Dance supports outdoor education Get ready to dance – The Wilds are coming to town! Think Joni Mitchell meets Bon Scott of AC/DC and you get an idea of what the music The Wilds produce is about. It is an unlikely combination, but one that bears rich sounds, high energy, and a unique musical perspective. The dance on Friday, March 2 at the Elks Hall is a fundraiser for the Shuswap Outdoor Learning Foundation. Coming from Vancouver, The Wilds are led by singer-songwriters Holly Arntzen on vocals, dulcimer, and piano, and Kevin Wright on vocals, percussion, and sax. They describe their sound as “Folk Pop to Rock Your World” – the folk/blues of Holly’s slide dulcimer mixed with Kevin’s

hard-hitting Cajun and congas, and lit up by rich vocal harmonies, solid backbone bass by Owen Owen Owen, and Tim Porter’s virtuoso guitar playing. Arntzen and Wright are the core members of the Artist Response Team (ART), which produces a steady stream of Voices of Nature School Music Programs and community concerts throughout Western Canada and beyond. They are joined in the schools by throngs of young people singing out about various environmental issues from watersheds to salmon. During the week before the dance, ART will be working with Bastion Elementary students to produce a “Rock the Salish Sea” show. All funds raised at

The Wilds are led by singer/songwriters Holly Arntzen, Kevin Wright, solid backbone bass by Owen Owen Owen, and Tim Porter’s guitar playing. (Photo contributed) the March 2 event will go to support the work of the Shuswap Outdoor Learning Foundation, which provides summer camping experiences for young people and

outdoor school programs that connect students meaningfully with the natural world. Since this organization was established in 2013, the number of programs has grown

Salmon Arm residents will have the chance to see a little slice of their hometown up on the big screen on Tuesday, Feb. 27 during a screening of Out of the Interior, a documentary film highlighting the success of independent cinemas in B.C. The Salmar Classic theatre is featured in the documentary, along with its proprietors, showcasing its special place within the local community as well as its unique position as one of the few not-for-profit theatres in Canada. The documentary was produced and directed by Curtis and Silmara Emde, a pair of husband and wife filmmakers from Vancouver who hope to shine light on both the struggles and successes of independent cinemas against the ubiquity of big theatre chains which only show Hollywood

blockbusters. Out of the Interior may have a special resonance with many Salmon Arm residents who came to know the much-loved Eric Nelson, a long-time projectionist with the Salmar Classic who is featured prominently in the film. Nelson, who died suddenly on Dec, 10, 2016, was known by many throughout Salmon Arm as the friendly, charming theatre employee who they could expect to see any time they headed out for a night at the movies. “He was with the Salmar for almost 30 years. When you came into the movies you looked for Eric, he was always the guy at the ticket taker’s stand with a big smile on his face, he knew everybody, he had a nice thing to say to everybody, he was just one of those special people that you meet only once in a blue moon.”

To her, the chance to see Nelson’s face and hear his voice one last time after his sudden passing is a gift in and of itself. “He was ripped from us so quickly that we didn’t get to see him or hear him one last time. This is very unique, because how often does it happen where you wish there was just one more time where you could hear what he sounded like… it’s on film forever now. For our community to be able to see him one last time, I think that’s really special,” Duford says. Out of the Interior will be shown at the Salmar Classic theatre at 7:30 p.m. on Feb. 27 and filmmakers Curtis and Silmara Emde will be present to field questions from the audience. Tickets can be purchased at the doors or in advance at the Salmar Classic or Salmar Grand theatres.
