Escaped canine badly injures smaller dog Large dog euthanized after April 2 mauling. Jim Elliot Salmon Arm Observer

An attack by an American bulldog that escaped its yard on the side of a busy Salmon Arm street has left a small dog fighting for its life. The bulldog owner has since had the animal euthanized. The attack took place along the side of 30th Street NE on

Monday, April 2. The bulldog, a nineyear-old female, had shown aggressive behaviour towards other animals in the past, but the owner, who asked to remain anonymous, said she thought this had been largely corrected by obedience training three years ago. She added the dog had visited the vet and

boarded at a local kennel without issue and never showed any aggression towards people. Animal control had received no complaints about the dog before the attack. The owner said she had family and friends over to her house for Easter dinner when she saw that the dog had escaped her yard. She rushed

outside and tried to restrain it and her other dog, a smaller-sized pitbull. A report to animal control from the woman whose dog was attacked said she was walking her dog on a leash when the two dogs escaped from a nearby yard. The woman struggled to free her dog, Continued on A3

punching and kicking the bulldog; she suffered an injury to a finger on her left hand and later went to the hospital emergency room for treatment. The injured dog, whose name is Charlie, survived the attack and is at a local vet receiving treatment. According to the owner of the bulldog, the women struggled to free the small dog from the bulldog’s jaws for three or four minutes before passersby arrived to help. Darcy Keehn was one of the first to happen upon the scene of the attack as he was on his way to work. Keehn jumped out of his car and began kicking the dog, but even the impact of his steel-toed boots couldn’t get it to unclench its jaw. “Everybody was screaming so I of course pulled over and ran across the road and started kicking the pitbull with steel toed boots. It was like kicking a stump, it didn’t

even look at me. I must have kicked it at least 10 times, maybe more,” he said. Keehn said the distressing scene and the dog seeming impervious to his kicks led his adrenaline to take over, making his recollection of the events a blur. He tried to get another man who was mowing a nearby yard to help and by the time they returned, other people had arrived and were trying to free the small dog. Keehn left the scene and continued on his way to work as an RCMP officer was arriving. Salmon Arm RCMP Staff Sergeant Scott West said the RCMP helped transfer the dog that was attacked and its owner to a local vet and gave their file on the incident to the City of Salmon Arm’s animal control contractor in order to assist with their investigation into the incident. Animal control collected statements from the owners of both

A long-standing building in the Solsqua area was damaged by fire on Friday, March 30. Chief Brett Ogino of the Sicamous Fire Department said they got the call reporting a structure fire at 1805 Cambie-Solsqua Road at around 5:30 p.m. “It’s locally known as Sims’ corner, it was the old Sims residence, it had been a post office and a library back in the day,” Ogino said. The building was being used as a residence at the time of the fire. Ogino said Sicamous firefighters had just returned to the station from a motor vehicle accident call and were preparing to head home when the fire call came in allowing

Dog control officer Pat Ellis said the owners of both the injured and attacking dogs are badly shaken up by the incident. “It was traumatizing; the worst thing I’ve dealt with in my entire life,” said the owner of the bulldog. She said she had great remorse about the incident, noting she would do anything she could to make it right. Ellis said the owner

could be fined up to $500 for her dog’s actions. “As far as we’re concerned, if you’re looking after it, you’re responsible,” she said. Re-homing the bulldog rather than euthanizing it was a possibility, although Ellis said the dog’s whereabouts and new owner would have to be given to animal control and a muzzle order would likely have been issued. The owner of the

bulldog said she had considered re-homing the dog, possibly to more rural surroundings, like where the dog was living until recently. The owner said the stresses of the dog’s new surroundings may have been a contributing factor in the attack. Concern the bulldog would fall into the wrong hands or cause problems for future owners, however, led her to make the decision to euthanize.

While an overpass may be out of the question to the city, one Salmon Arm group feels the public should be given the option as an alternative to the Ross Street underpass. In March 2009, the City of Salmon Arm received an engineer’s conceptual drawing for an overpass that would start from 4th St. NE north of Hudson Ave., travel over Lakeshore Dr. and the CP Rail building to connect with Ross St. NE. Plan 4 Prosperity chair Jim Kimmerly was surprised when he learned of the illustration indicating the city had looked at an overpass concept, and wanted to know

why it hasn’t been presented to the public as an alternative to the sought-after underpass. “From our perspective, Plan 4 Prosperity, we just want to see that the best option is chosen and I think they should have a second option available and it should have been costed out and the whole thing and let people decide what they want,” said Kimmerly. On Thursday, March 29, Kimmerly had an opportunity to bring this concern up with the city during a Ross Street underpass information presentation by city administrator Carl Bannister at the Prestige Harbourfront Resort. At the presentation,

Kimmerly was informed the overpass isn’t feasible. One of the reasons, explained by engineer Jennifer Wilson, was the grade would be too steep (about 12 per cent). “I checked it out with another engineer yesterday and 12 per cent is the outer range, the outer limit for something like an overpass,” said Kimmerly. “So it’s not that it isn’t feasible, it could be done if they really wanted to do that.” There were other factors, however, working against the overpass concept. Mayor Nancy Cooper explained to the Observer that the size and scope of the overpass makes it aesContinued on A5

City to host underpass information meetings Continued from A4 thetically unappealing. In addition, it’s unknown whether the bulk of such infrastructure could be supported on the north end. As for the grade, Cooper said the steepest part of Okanagan Ave. is on a 12 per cent grade. “You start thinking about the winter conditions too on Okanagan, right in the middle of downtown…,” said Cooper, noting engineering drawings for the underpass are about 90 per cent complete. “We have no engineering drawings for this (the overpass) because council looked at it and decided it wouldn’t be a viable option and the property acquisition that would be needed and the aesthetics, having those big columns through downtown, it wasn’t an option.”

Cooper said the choice facing the public in the October referendum won’t be about infrastructure options, but whether or not residents support the city borrowing $5.185 million to build the underpass. While Kimmerly maintains residents should have more options, another takeaway for him from the meeting was the city is pursuing the underpass not only for improved public safety and traffic flow, but also as a legacy to former Salmon Arm resident and developer Vic Bates. In an email to the Observer, Bannister said he recognized the late Mr. Bates in his presentation “as a visionary for the Salmon Arm waterfront, and acknowledged his many contributions to the Ross Street underpass project, financial and

otherwise.” The underpass is expected to cost $10.5 million in total, with the remainder covered by grants, including a $1 million contribution by CP Rail, reserves and development cost charges. The city will be hosting information open houses on the Ross Street underpass on May 3, June 28 and Aug. 30, from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Prestige Harbourfront Resort. City staff will be available to answer any questions. A referendum on the underpass will be held in conjunction with the municipal election in October. Should it pass, the tender and award process is expected to take place between October and July 2019, with construction to be completed in the summer of 2020.

Scammers get aggressive

It seems people engaged in fraudulent activities will always find more sophisticated ways to bilk people. The Canada Revenue Agency scam, which has many different forms and is making the rounds again, is a natural for those who target the vulnerable in our society. Many people fear this federal department or at the very least, go out of their way not to draw attention to themselves when it comes to issues related to income tax. Given the fear factor, it’s not surprising that unscrupulous people use this agency as a vehicle to defraud others. While in some cases it can involve enhanced technology – in one scenario, a device was used to illicitly display a legitimate agency’s phone number on the potential victim’s call display – often it involves simple brute force phone tactics. Masquerading as CRA staff or even police officers and threatening people with arrest if they don’t comply and transfer funds, seems simple and crude but works to separate some people from large amounts of money. There are ways to combat such tactics. As the police advise, if you believe someone is aggressively and fraudulently trying to scam you, simply hang up the phone immediately. If that seems too harsh, tell the person you need to call someone else to get some advice. And if you feel at all fearful about the situation, call 911 right away. And if you get roped into a financial windfall-type fraud, remember, if the situation sounds too good to be true, it most likely is. -Black Press

NASP archery ranges, as well as the equipment and targets used has been standardized throughout all participating schools and organizations. All participants use he same model of Genesis bow, the same brand and model of arrows and shoot at the same standardized target. This follows through to the competition level making for a level playing field (target range) for all participants. NASP states that the program uses “time-proven, state-of-the-art training techniques and educational methods to provide a foundation to support a lifetime of archery enjoyment.” Simply put, students learn how to shoot safely in a controlled setting from certified instructors and learn self-disciplinary skills that will see them through life. Before presenting an archery course to students, all teachers/instructors must undergo an eight-hour NASP Basic Archery Instructor Training program. During this training, teachers/instructors learn how to set up and operate a safe archery range in their gymnasium. They are taught whistle signals which are used to direct students to do various maneuvers. They are also taught archery techniques, safety, and the “Eleven Steps to Archery Success.” Finally, sessions are conducted to explain inspection, maintenance and operation

of the bows and arrows. Throughout each class and at every step through the process, safety of all participants is of utmost concern at all times. Whether in the class setting or at competition levels, strict NASP safety protocols are in place. Even event volunteers such as myself are giving safety instruction so that everyone will be able to understand and implement these safety protocols. An integral part of the safety protocol is a series of whistle commands that can be clearly heard and recognized by everyone taking part in an event. Competitors are more than familiar and used to working with both verbal and whistle commands. All in all, it is a pretty impressive program that provides a safe learning environment for young people who are interested or wanting to learn about archery. I wish NASP had been around when I was a kid going to school. Maybe I would have learned to be a better archer. What I do know for sure is that this coming weekend, a lot of young archers are going to be having a lot of fun competing and meeting new people with alike interests. Who knows, maybe some of them will get to compete in the Canadian National NASP Championships. You never know, some day one of them might even step up on the Olympic podium.

Housing plan gets initial approval Developers want change to facilitate tree clearing. Martha Wickett Salmon Arm Observer

A treed property near Bastion Elementary and Good Samaritan Hillside Village is moving quickly towards becoming a 24-unit residential development in the form of seven multi-family buildings. If approvals are given at the Monday, April 10 council meeting, tree clearing could begin Tuesday. A development permit application from Uptown Ventures, owners of the property at 2810-15th Ave. SE, was considered at the city’s Monday, April 3 planning meeting. The 2.5 acres or 0.96 hectares under consideration would include one five-unit building, two fourplexes, three triplexes and one duplex. Sixty-four parking spaces would be provided instead of the 36 required, and the site would include a sidewalk and pathway for pedestrian access. Both city planning staff and city council expressed approval of the plans. The buildings are described by staff as contemporary style with traditional pitched roof lines. “It’s an excellent development, the drawings are great,” remarked Kevin Pearson, the city’s director of development services, noting they adhere to permit area guidelines including working with exist-

ing topography and featuring separate buildings with varied facades and roof lines. Coun. Alan Harrison expressed a similar view: “We were admiring the drawings prior to the meeting - they’re really well done.” The developers are requesting a height variance from 10 to 12.2 metres, the full variance affecting only five units in the southeast portion of the plan. Staff explained the height variance is mitigated by the sloping terrain. Although council voted unanimously in favour of forwarding the plan to the April 10 council meeting (Couns. Ken Jamieson and Louise Wallace Richmond were absent), a second request did not receive everyone’s approval. The owner’s agent, Jayme Franklin of Franklin Engineering Ltd., requested a change in the usual order of approvals as the owner would like to get on the ground as soon as possible. “The rezoning and development permit process has gone really quickly and efficiently,” Franklin said. “We would like to push that even further. We would like council to allow us to start work on the property prior to the servicing agreement.” Until approximately three years ago, Pearson explained, once developers had either

Zoning and official community plan applications to accommodate 131 residential lots on a Park Hill Road property will go to a public hearing on April 9. Last week, City of Salmon Arm council gave first reading to both zoning and OCP amendment applications relating

to a 14-hectare lot at 6810 Park Hill Rd. NE. The owner, Wilmark Homes Ltd./ Homecraft Construction Ltd., is seeking the amendments to permit construction of approximately 131 residential parcels. The property, adjacent to the Club Shuswap golf course and city-owned park land, has been the subject of four previous OCP and zoning

Did you know that we have no general homeless shelter for 7 months of the year? Development on 15th Avenue NE across from Good Samaritan Hillside Village and near Bastion Elementary to go to Salmon Arm council on Monday, April 9 for development permit approval. (City of Salmon Arm image) their building or development permits approved, as well as a letter giving them preliminary subdivision approval, they could go ahead and start clearing trees. However, that was changed when a few developers cleared property but then did not proceed with development. “Then we had issues, certain people were clearing properties with the PLA (preliminary layout approval) and then not following through. The biggest example is up on Mt. Ida.” That one was a little different, he added, as the land was zoned for agricultural use and the clearing was said to be for agricultural purposes. A far greater number of trees was removed than permitted. Now, because of concerns about ero-

sion and sediment, the city has been requiring a servicing agreement, which includes an erosion and sediment control plan, before clearing begins. The developer must provide 125 per cent of the cost of all onand off-site servicing work (usually a letter of credit), which the city essentially pays back once the work is done. Coun. Tim Lavery said the city has been working to facilitate the building of more housing, and approving the motion would help the proponent who’s ready to go. Others agreed. Coun. Kevin Flynn asked if the city would have a way to stop things if a servicing agreement doesn’t get signed. Staff told him yes, because without the agreement, the developer wouldn’t be able to get building per-

mits. Franklin said he’s expecting the servicing agreement would be in place within a few weeks. The majority of council gave preliminary approval to the tree clearing going ahead once the development permit is approved and a landscaping bond is received. That could occur at the Monday, April 9 meeting, with tree clearing beginning April 10. Coun. Alan Harrison was alone in voting against the early approval, while emphasizing he wants the project built as soon as possible. “From where I sit, if we do give the right to the developer to clear before the servicing agreement is in place, I don’t think we’ve done our job… We’re picking situations saying yes to one, no to another.”

amendment applications. In 1993, an application to rezone the property for a mobile home park was defeated by council, as was a 1994 application to rezone it from A2, rural holding to R1, single family residential. A 1996 application to rezone from A2 to R7, large lot single family, was supported by council, as was a subsequent application to rezone portions of the

property from R7 to R1, R4, medium density residential, and R9, estate residential. The current zoning application includes rezoning the medium and large lot residential zones to single family residential. “I think when we have the public hearing… we’ll be talking about storm water, we’ll be talking about drainage, traffic plans, connectivity, who is

going to build those trails, when will those trails be built?” commented Coun. Chad Eliason. “The last time we discussed this property, which was a long time ago… the residents down below were most concerned about storm water and connectivity.” The public hearing on the proposal will take place in council chambers at 7 p.m.

Sorrento home destroyed by fire Jodi Brak Salmon Arm Observer

At approximately 9:50 a.m. Saturday, Chase RCMP and local fire departments received a report of a house fire in the 2800 block of Caen Road in Sorrento, near the Petro-Canada gas station on the Trans-Canada Highway. Police, fire and ambulance crews were all dispatched to the scene of the fire. The occupants of the house had safely evacuated the building before crews

arrived and were not injured. Sean Coubrough, the Columbia Shuswap Regional District’s Fire Services Coordinator, says a neighbour saw the smoke and reported it to one of the homeowners who was working outside. The man then went into the house to get his spouse. The Shuswap Fire Department was the initial responder but requested aid from other departments as the blaze was substantial by the time they

arrived. Tappen-Sunnybrae and White Lake departments assisted in extinguishing the fire and ensuring it was contained; the primary blaze was put out by about 10:30 a.m. but crews worked to douse hot spots for the next hour or more. The building was considered compromised, so crews brought in heavy machinery around 2 p.m. to destroy it. The cause is not yet known.

A residential fire in Sorrento on Saturday morning, March 31, required a response from several area fire departments. (Travis Koprowsky photo) “The fire started based in the garage area; the exact cause is

currently under investigation,” Coubrough said.

The CSRD received grant funding to map Bastion Mountain in response to the destructive April 7, 2017 landslide and others in the area. (Observer File Photo) brae-Canoe Point road on April 7, the Columbia Shuswap Regional District is preparing to map the mountain it originated on in hopes of preventing or minimizing the effects of future slides. Derek Sutherland, the regional district’s protective services team leader, said a $150,000 grant from the Union

of BC Municipalities will allow for Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) mapping of Mount Bastion above Sunnybrae-Canoe Point Road. The mapping will plot the locations of water courses, alluvial fans and other terrain features and allow the CSRD to do a landslide risk assessment of the entire area.

Sutherland says the mapping project is in response to the two serious landslides along the road last spring and another in 2014. A number of properties near the sites of last year’s slides remain on evacuation alert and one property is still on evacuation order. Sutherland said a geologist reviewing the

Carrier of the Month

site of the landslide that came down in April last year still has concerns. He said it is possible that debris uphill from the properties damaged by the April 7 slide could still come down. He added there are no such concerns of remaining debris at the site of the May 6, 2017 slide which took the life of 76-year-old Roy Sharp. Those who live at properties on evacuation alert do so with the understanding that they have to be ready to leave if conditions change and the alert is upgraded to an order. Sutherland said there are no other areas of the CSRD exhibiting an immediate risk for landslides at this point, but risk analysis will be undertaken in several other areas to identify any potential problems.

Emergency shelter closes doors until November Martha Wickett Salmon Arm Observer

Spring may be late this year, but the closure of the Salvation Army’s Lighthouse Emergency Shelter remains right on time. Sunday, April 1 was the shelter’s final day of the season. The people staying overnight received breakfast Monday morning and then were on their way. It’s not known where they are now staying. Major Martin Ketteringham, who oversees the shelter, said

the shelter’s contract with the government is from Nov. 1 to March 31, so the funding ends then. As well, staffing was an issue. “We had lost a few of our workers and everyone was stretched to the limit. We made the decision not to keep operating at this time,” he said. The Salvation Army’s community services manager Dave Byers is off on leave following a surgery in January; he is expect-

ed to return on a parttime basis at the end of April. The doors to the shelter would open at 6:30 p.m. seven days a week. People would receive a hot dinner as well as breakfast the next morning and then be out by 8 a.m. The shelter was open seven days a week. Ketteringham said Salvation Army personnel will be meeting later this month to talk about the future of the shelter – not whether it will remain open,

but what can be done better and what can be added to it. He said it will definitely be opening its doors on Nov. 1. In a February interview, Ketteringham said it takes approximately $100,000 a year to run the shelter. While part of its operating costs are covered by BC Housing, he says there is still a $30,000 shortfall which is covered by donations from the public to the Salvation Army. He says the community is very generous.

Everything Shuswap tours Shuswap Author Jim Cooperman will be visiting several libraries. Now in its second printing, Everything Shuswap will be the topic for five powerpoint presentations by author Jim Cooperman in April. Four talks will be at local libraries beginning in the Enderby Branch at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, April 7, followed by the South Shuswap Branch at 1 p.m. on Thursday, April 12; the Salmon Arm Library at 2 p.m. on Saturday, April 21 and then at the Sicamous Branch on Tuesday, April 24 at 1 p.m. Everything Shuswap has received rave reviews in various publications. The Vancouver Sun noted that the book is “a compelling portrait of land, waters, wildlife and human history.” In BC Bookworld, a review states the book “makes a convincing case for better

understanding and appreciating one of this province’s best kept secrets.” A Globe and Mail review pointed out how “Everything Shuswap should be mandatory reading for anyone who lives in or visits the Shuswap.” Thanks to author Jim Cooperman gifting the proceeds to the school district, the first printing raised $24,5000 for outdoor learning. Area teachers are now applying to the new fund for field trips this spring and each school in the district can access up to $1,000 for nature study programs. The book talks are open to the public and will provide an inside look into the story behind the book and how the publication benefits the community. Copies of the book

Author Jim Cooperman will be speaking about Everything Shuswap at several locations throughout April. (Photo contributed) can be purchased at local bookstores, Askew’s, Blind Bay Village Grocer and other local stores. There will be a

book signing at Bookingham Palace in the Mall at Piccadilly following the library talk on April 21.

is savvy and diabolical but keeps his cards close. There are four also-rans including Molotov, a lackey who continues to try to appease Stalin even after he’s dead — a standout performance by Michael Palin of Monty Python fame. The British and American actors play Russians but with no attempt to speak with a Russian accent, helping us to see it as a not-exact re-telling of the story. Stalin’s protracted death keeps the “is he or isn’t he?” storyline going for a time. Then once he succumbs, the power play ensues. The plotting and backstabbing become more elaborate as funeral arrangements are made and Stalin’s children have to be dealt with. Family, friends and all the multitudes of terrified and worshiping masses, uncertain of what’s ahead, come together to pay their “respects.” And all the while, the henchmen jockey for position, and the machinations around the funeral become more and more desperate. This is dark real-life political drama, glued

Cinemaphile There’s lots of fodder for political satirists these days and Armando Iannucci, a master of the genre, has taken on US politics in HBO’s long-running Veep and British politics in The Thick of It and In the Loop. In The Death of Stalin he takes direct aim at Russia, not present day, but in 1953, during the last days of Josef Stalin’s 29-year tyrannical reign. Based loosely on facts, as all politics tend to be, Iannucci’s dark comedy focuses on Stalin’s demise, and the chaos that ensues as his various underlings engage in a furious struggle to assume power. All three main heirs-apparent to his “throne” are cunning, callous and power hungry. First is Georgy Malenkov (Jeffrey Tambor), Stalin’s loyal deputy, who is weak and indecisive. Second is Lavrenti Beria (Simon Russell Beale, an accomplished British stage actor), the ruthless head of the Soviet secret police and keeper of the death lists. Third is Moscow Party Head Nikita Khrushchev (Steve Buscemi), who

together by hilarious dialogue and oddball characters. Considering it’s based on appalling events, It’s quite remarkable that Iannucci manages to bring laughs to a bleak time in history. Clever comedic moments and buffoonery are starkly contrasted with the horrific realism of kidnappings, executions and official sociopathic behaviours, exposing the full terror of Soviet life in that era. It never asks us to laugh at cruelty; it does make us laugh at the absurd pettiness and small-mindedness of the men perpetuating the cruelty. Although it’s dark, there is just the right amount of humour to take the edge off what happened during the regime and yet edu-

fundraisers. Despite the many awards, certificates and recognitions she has received over the years, Nel was surprised to read her

email from Diabetes Canada telling her that she is being awarded the national volunteer of the year award for 2017. “I thought, ‘I can’t believe this, this is awesome.’ I was a bit awestruck,” she says with a huge smile. Nel was born in Haarlem, Netherlands in 1940 and immigrat-

ed to Canada when she was 23. She worked in the food service industry and eventually moved to New Westminster where she worked as director of food services at St. Mary’s Hospital. Over the years Nel’s dedication took her fundraising efforts down many paths and even overseas but she started very simply, volunteering where she could. “I started out with car raffles. I was working full time but I helped with car raffles in the Lougheed Mall and I was a mall captain. I could do that a bit.” Retirement to Salmon Arm in 1999 was just a trajectory into more volunteer hours. There was no job too small or tedious nor any challenge too daunting.

Tools for when depression hits NaN dickie Opening Our Eyes For people who live with a mood disorder— clinical depression (as I do) or bi-polar disorder (as some of my relatives do) — there are many ways we can help ourselves when we are in an episode (depressed) or in remission (what others would call good mental health). In an article several months ago, I offered three groups of tools for depression. First, lifestyle tools, including eating well, good sleep habits, moderate exercise, awareness of stimulants such as coffee, and depressants such as alcohol, and so on. Secondly, talking support which includes individual counselling, group therapy, and/or a depression support group with peers. And finally, educational tools, such as workshops in cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), workbooks

for depression, anxiety or other mental disorders, self-help books and online material. Be discerning with what you watch. Below I present four additional categories of tools, with specific ideas in each category. You may have other tools to add to this list. First, an important note: If you have a mood disorder, before employing any of the following suggestions, discuss them with your doctor or therapist to ensure that they are appropriate for your current situation. Monitoring tools: Ask yourself the following questions periodically when you feel mostly healthy: Am I feeling more stressed or anxious than usual? Am I experiencing undue selfdoubt these days? Am I avoiding my friends? Am I eating or sleeping

more or less than usual? Am I having difficulty concentrating? If you say yes to more than a couple of questions like these, talk to your doctor or therapist to find out if you may be sliding into an episode. Inquiry tools: The practice of mindfulness (simple but not easy!), now quite popular, can help calm the mind and keep you in the hereand-now. Investigate one of the many forms of yoga. You can read mental health, self-help or spiritual books to enlighten or inspire yourself. The Internet has many useful resources. Some people, myself included, journal-write to explore inner issues— entries that don’t need to shared with anyone else. Diversion tools: Take part in activities that focus your mind on a concrete task. Hobbies and creative endeavours can succeed in doing this. Time management tools: We need to create as balanced a life

as possible when we are ill. Managing your time well, balancing the above activities with other aspects of your daily life, will help keep that all-important equilibrium. You may have other tools in your toolkit to which you can add one or more of these described above. List your tools to discover how much you are helping yourself already. Select new tools; try them out. If something works, continue with it. It’s not helpful tell yourself, “I should improve my eating habits,” or “Maybe tomorrow…” or “I’m too depressed…” or “That won’t work for me….” If you lean on excuses such as these, you may be depriving yourself of actions that could help to ease one or more of the debilitating symptoms of your mental disorder. My approach to living with my illness is to do everything possible to manage my symptoms when I am depressed.

City council is supporting a fundraising effort that could involve punches being thrown at the mayor. When she steps into the ring at this year’s Hit 2 Fit community event, Christina El Gazzar will be boxing to raise $2,000 for a communication board to be set up in Blackburn Park. City staff had no problem with the request, nor did council. Mayor Nancy Cooper, who is also competing in the event, her second, was equally supportive – though she may be the one who ends up in the ring with El Gazzar. “It turns out I might be boxing against her and she’s quite a bit taller…,” said Cooper. “I’ll just be doing a lot of ducking.” In a letter to council seeking their support, El Gazzar, a registered speech language pathologist, explains May is Speech and Hearing Month and she is very motivated to raise awareness around speech language pathology. “Young children

Elk herds moving up into Shuswap region ShuSwap OutdOOrS Hank Shelley Of all the big game animals hunted in B.C., elk rank the highest sought after. But numbers are down, raising concern. There is intense unregulated hunting, high predator numbers, unseasonable weather and snow conditions. He was a massive bull elk. Actually a record-book bull. Floating just off the rocky shore at Shelter Bay down Highway #23

south of Revelstoke. As the swirling mist of early morning lifted, a lone figure waded out to try and take the antlers off. Unbeknownst to the poacher, he was being videotaped by a longtime resident, who had a cabin up the road. In turn, conservation officers from Nelson dealt with the case. The set of antlers did a tour of the province and U.S., before being

returned to be placed above the door at Revelstoke’s community centre. While logging in the Beaton area many years ago, with then brotherin-law Ivan, we saw and heard elk bugling many times come fall. These animals had migrated from the Duncan dam region, into the Shelter Bay, Crawford Creek, Akolkollex drainage. The herd built up. There was a hunting season. Then wolves have just about decimated the herds. Okanagan/Shuswap elk: From our goose hunting corn field blind above White

Lake Dairy, the cow elk pranced out, and munched down a corn cob. Where the heck she came from, no one knows. There has been a small herd in the Malakwa area for some time, and a growing herd of elk in Deep Creek. Not a mystery. There has been elk on Little White Mountain east of Kelowna,(the same herd of 120 seen on CHBC news heading to a Kelowna orchard recently) for many years. Our elk originated from a herd in Naramata, near Penticton, which over time, migrated up Wild Horse

canyon, across from Squally point on Okanagan lake, then above Joe Rich,below Big White, across Aberdeen Plateau, Lumby, through Trinity Valley to Fortune Creek at Enderby. In June 2000, I received a call at the DFO office, from a Splatsin band member, regarding a mature bull, a yearling bull, two cows, and a calf at the marsh in Fortune Creek. All band members where notified to leave the animal alone. Since that time, the herd has tripled in size. There are some in Deep Creek and another now mi-

Our entire staff recently returned from a great Chiropractic and wellness seminar in California and one of the speakers presented some interesting information on the herb Echinacea. Despite the fact that Echinacea is one of the most widely used immune boosting herbs, there still is a lot of confusion over its proper use. Echinacea is a flowering plant that has been known for literally thou-

sands of years to have a beneficial effect on immune system function. However, the latest research is now providing some insight into how this herb actually boosts immunity and which parts of the plant provide the most potent effects. There are a number of different species of Echinacea but the 2 most well-known ones are E. purpurea and E. angustifolia. To further confuse us, different products use either echinacea seeds, the flower, or the root

or a combination of them. As most of us are not master herbalists, I wanted to simplify a lot of this research and explain how to take the most effective form of Echinacea. Within the Echinacea world there are 2 different camps. One group of therapists believe the most effective type is derived from the flower of the E. purpurea plant, while the other group holds that the “tradition Echinacea extract” is actually a more effective immune booster as it is derived from the roots of both the E. angustifolia and E. purpurea plants.

presented suggested the latter is actually more effective because it is more readily absorbed into the body, and is more readily available for use by the immune cells it is designed to target. Again, without going too deep into biochemistry, the take home message is that traditional root preparations are fat-loving, while extracts from the plant flowers are water-loving. Fat-loving herbs tend to be better absorbed by the body because cell walls have higher levels of fat. In other words, place a drop of cooking oil into water and it will stay clumped together as one - until it meets another drop of fat. Herbs that are fat loving do the

Adequate sleep is important for children’s health, states the American Academy of Pediatrics. Quality sleep is just as important as well visits and protective immunizations. Babies and young children may sleep between 10 and 18 hours per day, but by the time a child reaches schoolage, he or she may be well-rested after getting between 9 and 11 hours. Sleep is vital for the body to recover and rebuild and for the brain to

process new information. The Center for Pediatric Sleep Disorders at Boston Children’s Hospital says that children who are not getting enough sleep may experience difficulty learning new tasks. Parents who want to foster good sleeping habits in their children can try the following strategies. • Set a smart bedtime and nap schedule. • Do not allow the use of electronics approximately one hour prior

which are cells in your blood that travel around detecting and attacking invading organisms. So, in summary, the home-run combination for Echinacea is a root-derived, fat-loving extract that is high in alkylamides.

same in our body in that when they come into contact with a fat-filled cell wall, they bind to it easily rather than being repelled like oil does to water. The other aspect of a high quality Echinacea is that it must contain high levels of alkylamides – which are the actual components of the herb that interact in the body to stimulate the immune cells. Alkylamides are what we want as they are the substances that provide the boost to your immune system. They do this by helping to control immune reactions so that it does not over or under react to invading bugs. Alkylamides also boost the number of white blood cells in the body

Grandmother takes stand on pipeline

North Shuswap woman arrested as part of her commitment to protecting the Earth. Martha Wickett Salmon Arm Observer

Patricia White will be appearing in court in Vancouver on June 15. The North Shuswap grandmother doesn’t look particularly nefarious, but she was one of about 60 people arrested on March 24 in Burnaby. White was protesting the expansion of

Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain pipeline. To do so, she defied an injunction prohibiting people from being within five metres of a gate to Kinder Morgan terminals where the company’s equipment travels in and out. Why does she feel strongly enough to be arrested? “I’m a grandmother.

I’ve been educating myself about the extraction industry in general, including the tar sands, which is where bitumen is coming from.

disrespectful in that way.” She says the protest is being led by First Nations, as it should be, and the protesters are referred to as water protectors. “Everybody doing it believes that we must protect the water, land and air.” White also refers to company ‘man camps,’ which she says can hold 1,000 men within chain-link fenced areas in trailers, typically in remote areas where the pipeline is being built. White contends they bring sex assaults, drugs and alcohol, but don’t bring any of the promised financial benefits to the communities. She’s generally opposed to all extraction industry that’s going ahead without any consultation with the people in the areas that it’s affecting. “I don’t see these extraction industries are really benefiting the local populations; they seem to be benefiting already-rich corporations. And I’m opposed to our RCMP being

They’re just not healthy anymore the way children used to be. This is the reality. All these ideas that we’re supposed to run for the cure or look for the cure. All of this is just such backward thinking because we have to remove the cause. And the cause is our environment being so poisoned.” Whiting describes herself as an activist and explains she was contacted via email

with a request for support. She says the Union of BC Indian Chiefs, together with organizations such as the Dogwood Initiative, Greenpeace, 350.org and Stand.earth used their combined mailing lists to ask if anyone would be willing to occupy the area in front of the gate, as part of the ongoing movement to stop the pipeline.

Patricia White, a North Shuswap grandmother, is escorted by RCMP for processing after being arrested in a protest of the expansion of the Kinder Morgan oil pipeline in Burnaby on March 24. (Photo contributed)

Four officers escort peaceful protester Continued from A28 cording to whether they were First Nations, youths, senior citizens, and other groupings. When they arrived, they were given a twohour training session and given clear instructions on how to proceed with the occupation. “The whole point of it was non-violence,” she says. “And they gave us an indication of what to do if anyone else was acting violently.” At the end of the training, organizers asked people to think about whether they would be willing to be arrested. People were eventually separated into those who thought they would be willing and those who

wouldn’t, she says, emphasizing that people were given the option to back out right to the end. Then they were put into lines of 10, with those who were willing to be arrested right in front of the gates and those who weren’t, behind the five-metre mark. “It was snowing like crazy, very wet snow coming down, and freezing cold. Nobody stopped, everybody was completely committed on their own. White says the organizers were very considerate, asking the seniors if they wanted to be arrested first so they wouldn’t have to stand out in the snow. White liked that idea, and was in the second line of people who were arrested.

She said the RCMP were also thoughtful, first reading the lengthy injunction and then asking each individual if, now that they completely understood the document, did they still want to be arrested? If they didn’t, they had the option to leave. “Being arrested was definitely a choice – are you willing to break the law to protect the water.” When it was her turn, White was walked down to where the RCMP had set up white tents to process everyone. “I was surrounded by four large RCMP, which I thought was a waste of taxpayers’ money. Because I went willingly, I don’t think they needed that amount of enforcement.”

White signed papers, showed ID, was given a court date and released. Asked about the accusation that people’s opposition to the pipeline is being sparked by large U.S. based environmental organizations, she uses her first expletive. “That is just such crap,” she says, emphasizing she didn’t meet anyone who wasn’t personally committed. “This is a real individual thing. I just feel compelled and so I do.” White has been asked about her non-stop activism – what if she doesn’t win? “I say, you know what, I win every day because I try. When I go to bed at night I know I did something to try, so I won.”

Remembering Loved Ones

George Leonard ( Bud ) Muir

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

Herbert Spohr 1929-2018

Herb Spohr quietly slipped away from this life on Tuesday, March 27th. 2018. He is predeceased by his close brother and friend Walter Spohr his parents and many siblings in Germany. He is survived by his wife Margaret, his children: Ron Spohr, (Anita); Norm Spohr, (Margaret); Iris Tabert (Fred); Ken Spohr, (Laury) and 15 grandchildren and 24 great grandchildren. Herb was born in the village of Hamburen, Germany. Shortly after the war, Herb met and married Margaret Muller and soon after, the first of their four children was born. In 1951 the couple immigrated to Canada to begin their new life together, where after a stormy voyage, and seemingly endless train trip across Canada they arrived in Kelowna BC, at the home of Margaret’s uncle, Ertman (and Elizabeth) Schilke. They moved many times from BC to Alberta and back again, through many jobs, many homes, through both good and difficult times; before finally putting down roots in Westbank BC. In the late 70’s Herb and Margaret moved to a 40-acre farm in Silver Creek, where he finally realized his boyhood dream of farming and raising cattle. He also worked at the Shuswap Lake General Hospital until retirement in 1992. He and Margaret have resided in the Salmon Arm area for the last 40 years. Herb was an honorable man who loved his Lord and Saviour, his family and his friends. He lived out his values and beliefs before his family, friends and colleagues. His unshakable faith, his love and commitment to his family, especially those wonderful grandchildren and great grandchildren; his resilience and tenacious desire to succeed; his honesty, integrity and generosity in his dealings with all people, and his servant’s heart speak of a life lived well. He will be dearly missed, but he has gone home to be with the Lord, - a better place by far! The family would like to express heartfelt thanks to the staff of Mt. Ida Mews, Dr. Weichert and Dr. MacMillan for the excellent and compassionate care he received in his last days, and to the many friends and family who visited him while he was in care. A memorial service will be held at Shuswap Community Church at 3151 – 6th. Ave NE in Salmon Arm at 11:00 am., Saturday, April 7th. 2018. Reception to follow: Little Mountain Bible Chapel 3481 – 10th. Ave. SE, Salmon Arm Condolences may be expressed to the family by sending them through Herb’s obituary at www.bowersfuneralservice.com In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Morning Star Bible Camp. www.morningstarbiblecamp.com

IRVING

November 17, 1947 – March 13, 2018

In loving memory of

Kelvin Millwater Even though a year has passed our memories of you have not faded. You are loved and missed by your daughters Peyton and Alexa. Remembered and cherished by your mom Theresa. Your sister Crystal and brother-in-law Randy still feel your absence in the house daily. Your nephews Gauge and Dexter still talk about their “Brother� Kelvin and have wrote a song in your memory. Kelvin, you may be gone but the impressions you left on us will live on.

Tams, Shirley Marguerite (Nee: Taylor) Age 87, August 3rd, 1930 to March 11th, 2018 Born in Paynton, Saskatchewan Shirley was predeceased on March 12th, 2013 by her loving husband of 62 years, Bill. Brothers Geordie and Glenn Taylor, and son-in-law, Don Bergren, in 1996. She was a wonderful mother to Susan (Terry), Bob (Deb), and Brian (Deb). She also had a very special place in her heart for family friend, Marcia Stacy and her niece, Angela Taylor. Loving Grandmother to Jamie, Shawna (Dan), Darryl, Shannon (Mike) and Jennika. Great Grandmother to Ryland, Kelan, Jacob and Cole. Shirley grew up on the farm in Paynton, Saskatchewan. She said it was lots of work making pies and bread from morning until night for the farmhands. When she was 12 the family lost the farm during the depression. The family then took the train to Summerland, BC to start a new life. In Summerland, Grampa and Gramma owned a local restaurant where Mom also worked. It was on the streets of Summerland where Mom met a handsome young man named Bill who became her husband. He always said that he took her to a poker game on their first date and that she was his good luck charm. Mom and Dad moved to Prince Rupert where they welcomed their first child, Susan. Bob was born in Vernon and Brian in Penticton where they settled to raise their kids.  Mom spent a lot of time enjoying camping and fishing trips with the family. We were a very outdoorsy family. In 1989 they retired in Blind Bay to live on the shores of Shuswap Lake.  When Mom and Dad were not travelling in their RV we had many family gatherings sitting on the deck enjoying the beautiful sunsets over Shuswap Lake. Mom had a great sense of humour. She was fun loving but quiet and unassuming and she did so much for us. We love you Mom. Thanks for being there. We will miss you. Special thanks to Dr. Angela Plessis, Dr. Megyesi, and the Community Care Nurses and Care Aids. Arrangements entrusted to Fischer’s Funeral Services & Crematorium Ltd., Salmon Arm, (250)833-1129.

NHL defenceman and Sicamous native Shea Weber told reporters he had been playing through the pain for a long time before making the decision to undergo surgery to repair a tendon in his left foot. Speaking to the press at the Montreal Canadiens’ practice facility in Brossard, Quebec on March 27, Weber said he has been dealing with the injury to his left foot since the Habs’ season opener against

Buffalo on Oct. 5. “Somewhere along the line the tendon was damaged and needed to be repaired and obviously that’s what we took care of a couple weeks ago,” Weber said. He added it is hard to pinpoint what caused the damage to the tendon and even the surgeon who operated on his foot is not sure. Weber’s last took the ice for a frigid outdoor contest on Dec. 16, 2017 in Ottawa, and some combination of the cold and playing on the injured foot for over two months led him to

Shae Weber conclude the injury was more serious than a fracture, which he has played on before. “It’s just the way it goes, you play through pain, everybody plays through it, it’s something that we deal with

on a daily basis but it obviously got to a point where there was something more severe than just the pain, my body was trying to tell me something more was going on,” the veteran defenceman said.

Run For It 5-km set for Blackburn Park April 14.

Jodi Brak Salmon Arm Observer

Salmon Arm resident Kelsey Adam will be hosting the Run For It 5 km charity run at Blackburn Park Saturday, April 14 at 1 p.m. Runners, walkers, spectators and supporters are welcome to come out to the park in support of a good cause. Registration will be open at the skate park, $15 for adults and $5 for children, with all proceeds going to charity. Those who cannot attend the event but wish to offer their support are encouraged to visit the online fundraising page at https://www. classy.org/fundraiser/1356166. The run is in support of the organization To Write Love On Her Arms (TWLOHA), a group committed to raising awareness for mental health issues and providing treatment and support for those who need it, particularly youth and young adults. The group has organized these charity runs around the world since 2013. Adam first heard of TWLOHA in 2010 through their outreach at the Vans Warped Tour music festival.

She says she chose to support the group because “they are dedicated to presenting

hope and finding help for people that struggle with addiction, depression, self injury

and suicide. What they want to do is to inform and inspire people that there is hope.”
