Bear spray disposal shuts down Skimikin dump

Transfer station to re-opens Friday, April 13 after noxious fumes forced closure. Jim elliot eagle Valley News

South Shuswap residents had a longer drive to dispose of recycling and household garbage as the Skimikin transfer station had to be shut down. The station was closed on Tuesday, April 10 due to a strong chemical odour coming from a can of bear spray that was discarded in one

of the bins and then punctured, releasing its irritating vapour. The CSRD closed the transfer station as a precautionary measure. It was expected to re-open on Friday, April 13 for its regular hours of operation. According to Ben Van Nostrand, the CSRD’s environmental health services team leader, employees on site noticed the

irritant in the air, they evacuated and closed the site. Firefighters from the Tappen hall responded and approached the site with gas detectors before discovering the can of bear spray. The Salmon Arm landfill was recommended to South Shuswap residents as an alternative option. Van Nostrand said the proper place to

dispose of hazardous material such as bear spray is at the Salmon Arm landfill on Saturdays, when their free hazardous waste depot is up and running. He said it is best to err on the side of caution and dispose of any pressurized or unlabeled containers at the hazardous waste depot instead of with regular garbage.

Bruhn Bridge feedback focuses on public safety Jim Elliot Eagle Valley News

A decision is approaching on whether the aging Bruhn Bridge will be replaced by a single five-lane span or a four-lane bridge with a second smaller bridge nearby. The results of the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure’s public consultation on the upcoming replacement of the bridge show more respondents in favour of the one-bridge option and safety concerns on both sides of the debate. The public were asked about the two options still being considered for the replacement of the bridge, which is more than 50 years old, during a community engagement process held from Feb. 1 to 18. The two options still being considered are a five-lane bridge to replace the current one, or a four-lane bridge

replacement and an entirely new bridge at Main Street. A third option, a sixlane bridge replacing the existing span was ruled out in September 2017 after an earlier round of public consultation. According to the report from the ministry, both options are expected to cost $215 million. “The ministry has not yet identified a preferred concept for advancement. Selection of a preferred option will consider engineering, environmental and financial information, along with feedback from local government, First Nations, the public, and the Project Liaison Committee, and will occur in spring 2018,” the report reads. Respondents to the public consultation process were asked to fill out a feedback form asking how strongly they agree with each

of the bridge-replacement options and giving them the opportunity to comment on the options. A total of 770 feedback forms were received. A further 186 people attended the open house on Feb. 1 and 30 emailed submissions were received. On the response forms the public were asked how strongly they agreed with each of the proposed options. When asked about the one-bridge option, 56 per cent of respondents ticked the box stating they strongly agreed or somewhat agreed; 41 per cent of respondents disagreed with the plan. In the portion of the form asking about the two-bridge option, 47 per cent of respondents said they agreed with the two bridge while 52 per cent disagreed. Respondents had the opportunity to state their case in their own words for why they

agreed or disagreed with each of the plans. Common reasons for agreement with the one-bridge plan included the possibility of it reducing traffic on Main Street and minimizing the impact on Sicamous’ walkability, green space, parking and property values. Sixty-one responses expressed concerns about impacts on Main Street traffic and congestion and a further 60 about walkabilty, property values, green space and parking. Some respondents are also in favour of the single-bridge option because they believe it will have less environmental, marine and archaeological impacts. Those opposed to the two-bridge solution also say it will negatively affect channel navigation, the boat launch and other marine traffic. Twenty-one respondents believe there is

an economic case to be made for the one-bridge option; they wrote comments saying the plan was more cost effective including eliminating potential tax implications for residents and ensuring that the cost of maintaining the bridge is borne by the ministry. Those in favour of each plan for the bridge replacement cited safety concerns with their less preferred option. Responses were received expressing concern about pedestrian and cyclist safety having to share the five-lane bridge with trucks and highway traffic. Twenty-seven respondents said they were in favour of the five-lane bridge because it is safer overall. Thirty-four responses were opposed to the single-bridge solution because they thought it will slow down the response of emergency vehicles.

The aging Bruhn Bridge is due for a replacement. (File Photo) The responses show both sides of the debate seem to think their option is best for improving access to the community, improving its prospects in terms of tourism and development. Along with the official response forms the Ministry also received 30 emailed submissions about the project. The written submissions expressed safety concerns with the current configuration intersection configuration at Old Spallumcheen Road

and the Trans-Canada Highway and support for the two-bridge option on the grounds it will be provide better access to the upcoming Sicamous to Armstrong rail trail for pedestrians and cyclists. A petition titled yes to main street bridge with a total of 35 signatures was also received with the written submissions. The Ministry’s report noted that in September 2017 they received a no to Main Street bridge petition with approximately 600 signatures.

Sharing nude photo leads to extortion attempt RCMP Report

Sicamous RCMP were notified of an extortion attempt involving a Sicamous man who submitted nude photo of himself to a woman he met on Facebook. Sgt. Murray McNeil says on April 6, the 37-year-old male victim reported he was contacted by an unknown female who began conversing with him on the social media website. “Over the course of several messages, the female asked the

victim to send her a nude photograph of himself,” said McNeil. “The man complied with the request, which resulted in the female demanding thousands of dollars while threatening to distribute the photograph to his Facebook friends if he did not comply.” McNeil said the victim did not pay any money to the woman, who was determined to be in the U.S., and has since altered the security settings on his

Ice prevents deer rescue

Icy waters prevented the rescue of deer that drowned while attempting to cross Mara Lake. On April 6, Sicamous RCMP were notified of a deer that had fallen through the ice on the lake near Swansea Point. Responding officers saw a full-sized deer struggling in the ice approximately 70 metres from shore. “The confused animal continued to attempt to cross the lake rather than turn for shore,” said Sicamous RCMP Sgt. Murray McNeil,

adding the deer soon became disoriented and stuck in the ice. A call was made to Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue Station 106 to attempt a rescue. The boat was immediately dispatched with four crew members onboard. But McNeil said the boat was slowed by the amount of ice still in Mara, preventing the crew from reaching the deer in time.

a 60 km/h stretch of highway in Sicamous. On April 8 at 11:45 p.m., a Sicamous RCMP officer witnessed an eastbound Toyota Solara travelling at an excessive speed on Highway 1 near Rauma Crescent. The officer, who was in an unmarked vehicle, drove after the Solara and, in the process, observed as the vehicle continued to travel east at 130 km/h through a 60-, 80- and into the 100-km/h zone. Sgt. Murray McNeil said the vehicle was stopped after travelling approximately three kilometres. “The 20-year-old male resident of Armstrong told the officer that he was unaware of his speed,” said McNeil. The driver was issued a $483 ticket for driving at excessive speed and his vehicle was impounded for seven days. “This section of the Trans-Canada High-

way intersects with several residential streets and businesses which increased the potential danger to the public by this driver’s reckless actions,” said McNeil.

Mail stolen in break in

Mailboxes were broken into and mail stolen from a box at the Mara Heights Road/ Clancy Frontage Road junction south of Sicamous. On April 5, Sicamous RCMP received a report of the break in that occurred sometime overnight. Police later noted 10 boxes were broken into and empty envelopes from one were later found littered on the ground near a business on Riverside Avenue in Sicamous. Sgt. Murray McNeil said Canada posed will be replacing the older mailbox unit with a newer, more secure model. “Affected residents

will be required to pick up their mail at the post office until the new boxes are installed,” said McNeil.

Failed breath test

A 59-year-old Swansea Point man received a 90-day suspension after being caught driving over the legal blood alcohol limit. On April 8 at approximately 1 a.m., Sicamous RCMP stopped the drive of a vehicle seen leaving a licensed establishment on Main Street. Sicamous Sgt. Murray McNeil said the officer detected an odour of liquor when speaking with the driver, a resident of Swansea Point. A roadside screening device test was conducted twice and both times the driver’s breath samples resulted in failing readings. Along with the driving suspension, the vehicle was impounded for 30 days.

Larch Hills Winery brings home the gold Business spotLigHt Leah Blain Larch Hills Winery put eight wines in this year’s SavorNW competition in Oregon and the judges liked everything. “They all brought medals home,” says owner Jack Manser. “I was a little bit surprised. Sometimes you expect too much.” The SavorNW Wine Awards has hundreds of entries from Oregon, Washington, Idaho, and BC. Jack adds that their Lemberger isn’t always “well enough understood by the judges.” But this time they understood it very well, as it brought home top honours, as did several of their other wines: Best of Class: Siegerrbe; Gold: Tamarack Rose; Gold: Ortega;Gold: Lemberger; Sil-

ver: Riesling; Bronze: Marechal Foch Reserve; Bronze: Merlot; Bronze: Malbec. Locally the Lemberger, Tamarack Rose, and Ortega are very popular, says Jack. He says the secret of their success is simple: attention to detail every step of the way. “It’s all the work we do in the summer and the whole season, the pruning, the way you grow grapes, and making the wine of course.”

Hike rates for risky drivers

Like it or not, we all have to deal with the Insurance Corporation of B.C. That is, those of us who drive, or who get hit by those of us who drive. Not long ago, in January, the province’s Attorney General David Eby referred to ICBC’s fiscal reality as a “financial dumpster fire” and uttered a dire warning that a $400 premium increase would be required for each driver in this province in order for the corporation to simply break even. And so it is with bated breath that we await a report which in coming weeks is expected to reveal what British Columbians have to say about improving this behemoth and the 30-year-old-plus model it uses to determine insurance rates. Nearly 30,000 British Columbians have weighed in on a “public engagement” questionnaire seeking feedback on how to improve the system and make drivers more accountable. The website had recorded 58,910 visits, 29,386 questionnaires had been completed and 398 individual submissions had been received. In a province with nearly five million residents, the jury is still out on whether that could be characterized as an ideal response, but it is what it is. The wall dropped on participation on April 5. What we hope to see is a new improved ICBC that will reward conscientious drivers with profoundly deep premium discounts while absolutely slamming reckless, dangerous drivers, who repeatedly cause mayhem on the roads, with punishing premium increases. Not only would this serve the principles of natural justice but could well remove many drivers who shouldn’t be on the road from the road through prohibitive insurance premium hikes, which clearly they deserve. – Black Press

taken on spinning gear using tiny spinners and streamers, or, on spinning gear using a float with a nymph pattern just off the bottom. Angling for mountain whitefish is pretty straightforward, given their preference for sub-aquatic insect forms, one need simply to get a nymph pattern down toward the bottom where they tend to hold, waiting to eagerly for whatever food source might come floating by. There are a number of ways to present a nymph pattern. One of my favourite methods is to use my ultra-lite centrepin outfit to cast a small balsa wood slider type float with a nymph pattern suspend at just the right depth. I simply cast the rig upstream, giving the fly enough time to sink to the bottom before it drifts past the fish. If casting a fly rod on rivers or larger streams, I’ll use a nine foot, five weight rod with a sinking line or a floating line with a sink tip. When using spinning gear, I prefer to use a seven to eight-and-a-half foot, light to medium light,

fast action spinning rod with six or eight pound monofilament line. On smaller creeks and streams, I’ll use my four weight fly rod or a six foot light action spinning rod and four pound mono. Spinners such as small Panther Martins or Mepps, as well as small spoons such as Dick Nites and silver Len Thompsons work well. Mountain whitefish tend to take any offering with several quick sharp, but also quite light bites. To detect a bite, simply keep a finger on the line and be ever alert for their distinctive tap, tap, tap. When you feel a tap or two, set the hook. It is important to remember that mountain whitefish have very soft mouths, so it is important to always use a somewhat softer hookset. Like I said, some anglers may look down their nose at casting for mountain whitefish, but I’ve had a lot of fun catching and releasing them. Sometimes quantity is better than quality - especially when the quality isn’t biting.

Enderby – the Shuswap’s river city SHUSWAP PASSION

a number of murals adorning the sides of buildings, and colourful window and wall paintings created by the well-known local artist Heather Edwards. The Enderby Arts Festival, held every July, is a free family oriented street festival that features an outdoor artisan market, a pancake breakfast, a food court, Family Fun Zone and an entertainment stage with live music and entertainment. Local art can be viewed throughout the year at the centrally located, courtyard gallery established by the Enderby and District Arts Council. Excellent live music can be enjoyed throughout the year in Enderby. Every month during the summer, the community hosts Music By the River concerts in Belvidere Park. Throughout the rest of the year, there is a monthly Coffee House at the Enderby Drill Hall, which serves as the community centre. Other activities in the Drill Hall, built in 1913 with Enderby bricks, include yoga, karate, ukulele classes, church services, childcare and cadet meetings. There are many opportunities for sports and recreation in Enderby, where there is an ice arena, a curling club, a skateboard

THE FUN STORE

kENT’S SCREaMING dEalS

Jim Cooperman With a population of slightly less than 3,000, one might think that Enderby is the province’s smallest city, however that title goes to Greenwood where just 665 people live. Enderby may be small, but it has much to offer given its many recreational opportunities, the importance it places on heritage and community values and its close relationship with the adjacent Splatsin community. Although its population is aging, there has been a resurgence of young families moving into the city, as the elementary school enrollment is over capacity. The key economic drivers for Enderby include manufacturing, tourism and agriculture, with the local dairy industry one of the most important sectors. Major employers include the small local sawmill, a company that manufactures safety equipment, and retail outlets. One of the new businesses is a dairy truck cleaning company that washes out the insides of stainless-steel milk tankers. Enderby was one of the first communities to grow and prosper in the Shuswap, thanks to its strategic location adjacent to the river bend and its proximity to productive farmland. For decades, the five-story roller mill built in 1887 supplied the province with flour; a massive sawmill provided hundreds of jobs and a brickyard provided bricks for homes and buildings throughout the valley. Today, Enderby’s rich heritage is a key part of the city’s charm and many of the older homes and buildings, including the city hall built in 1910, are the focus of the community’s historical walking tour. Arts and culture have a prominent place in the community, with

Fishing is also a favourite pastime, especially from off the bridge over the Shuswap River. Every July long weekend, many hundreds of ball players and their families come to Enderby, Armstrong and Vernon for the Annual Funtastic Slo-Pitch Ball Tournament, which also includes a music festival. Perhaps one of the most unique amenities in Enderby is the 69-site, public RV Park and campground, run by the Chamber of Commerce. Some families have been camping here annually for many years, as they appreciate the natural surroundings, the close access to the river, and the many nearby outdoor activities, including golfing, boating, hiking and the outdoor movie theatre. The campground is very popular with

tourists from France, Holland and Germany who come specifically to hike the Enderby Cliffs. Remarkably, the campground is even open during the winter and provides full service hook-ups to the growing number of people who are choosing to live year-round in their RV units. The one activity that has really put Enderby on the map in recent years is paddling and tubing on the Shuswap River. All summer long, parking areas adjacent to the river are full, as thousands flock to enjoy a lazy day floating down the river, often from the Trinity Bridge to Tuey (Paddlewheel) Park. Although

there are concerns about littering, a common problem whenever there are crowds of people, efforts are being made through the River Ambassador program to educate the tourists about the need to keep the river pristine. According to Enderby mayor, Greg McCune, the scenic riverside city offers nearly everything and is affordable for both young families and retirees. Its recently renovated city core provides friendly shopping and places to dine. One day soon, the city will also benefit from the rail trail that runs through it and will extend from Sicamous to the south Okanagan.

Public health nurse services comes to South Shuswap Lachlan Labere Salmon Arm Observer

A partnership between Interior Health and the South Shuswap Health Services Society has resulted in a pilot project providing access to public health nurse services closer to home. On Monday, April 9, IH public health nurses from Salmon Arm were at the Copper Island Health and Wellness Centre in the Blind Bay Marketplace for Day 1 of the pilot project. Services provided include adult and child immunizations. “We’re just really excited to be onboard now to provide immu-

nizations to that population…,” said IH pulbic health nurse Kaley York-Pearce, noting the project provides an opportunity to increase immunization rates, as well as awareness of the Copper Island Health and Wellness Centre operated by the South Shuswap Health Services Society (SSHSS). In addition to immunizations, other services offered include general screening around children’s health, growth and development. “We’ll do the general screening around diet and dental and speech and language, to check in with how

the child is growing and developing and if there’s any concerns,” said York-Pearce. “A public health nurse is a great link with the other agencies in town that can help support the child’s development even further, so that can always take place at those clinics as well. We link with other services like a speech and language pathologist who can really strengthen speech development, or a dental hygienist through our Lift the Lip program that can apply a fluoride varnish for kids 1 to 3 years of age that may be more at risk for dental cavities

continue its ongoing recruitment effort for physicians. “The immunization is the preventative side and by having the nurses come to us, it saves people having to drive into town…,” said McCrae. “We’re still going to continue in our quest to find physicians for that location.” A health nurse will be at the Copper Island Health and Wellness Centre every Monday from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m., providing immunizations by appointment. “It isn’t a drop in,” said York-Pearce. “We only have five defined appointment times

TAURUS

Taurus, your relations with authority figures are very good right now. Do your best to maintain this both in the short- and long-term. You will benefit from having done so. Gemini, a surprise invitation may come your way this week. You aren’t sure if you have the time or the gumption to accept at this point. But give ample thought to accepting. Cancer, even though you may want to spend time at home — and maybe make a cocoon under the covers — there are some things you need to face if you are going to move forward.

LEO

Leo, you are full of clever ideas that you are eager to share with coworkers and people at home. Pace yourself so you don’t overwhelm others with information.

VIRGO

Virgo, an opportunity to earn more money will catch your eye this week. Even if it seems a little risky, it could be well worth pursuing.

Sometimes it feels like Health Canada wants to ensure that everybody has a chronic disease. Not only can you have prediabetes, but also prehypertension. Prehypertension is a blood pressure between 120/80 and 139/89 mmHg. The hope is that by giving it a fancy name, you will be motivated to do something about it. Hypertension is responsible for up to 50 per cent of deaths due to heart disease and stroke and is the leading cause of kidney disease. In 2014,

Canadians spent $2 billion on blood pressure medications. But there may be another way. Our high-salt diets are thought to cause about a third of all hypertension. Other risk factors include obesity, low potassium intake (low fruit and vegetable intake), lack of exercise and excessive alcohol intake. A low-sodium diet is more than not adding salt to your food during cooking or at the table. It is in almost every single packaged and processed food. The average Canadi-

an consumes 3,400 mg of sodium, more than double the recommended 1,500 mg/day. The most you can consume without causing harm to your body is about 2,300 mg/day. To understand how easy it is to exceed the guidelines, here are some examples: Tim Hortons’ chili and bun = 1,600 mg of sodium (if you drink a hot chocolate, add another 320 mg) A 6” Subway Melt = 1,100 mg sodium McDonlad’s Crispy Chicken Caesar Salad = 1,070 mg sodium Unfortunately, if you want to meet sodium guidelines, you cannot eat out regularly. An ideal sodium diet means cooking instead of reheating packaged and processed foods. It means eating more

fresh fruits and vegetables and going easy on added sauces and dressings. Essentially, it means that your diet is not very “fun.” Nutrition labels are a great way to evaluate the salt content of foods. A good rule of thumb is that if the Percentage Daily Value is less than five per cent, it is considered “low” in sodium, but if it is above 15 per cent, it is “high” sodium, and should be eaten in smaller quantities or less often. Luckily for us, taste buds are adaptable, and once you are used to a low sodium diet, salty foods will not taste good. -Serena Cener is a registered dietitian who works at Shuswap Lake General Hospital.

From a hand-operated, gas powered mill in 1942, Hyde Mill has become an operation that takes pride in their workmanship and in supplying a superior product to their valued customer. Hyde Mill has long been a family affair and supplies custom orders to clients across Canada, the United States and overseas. Alan Hyde’s parents moved to the farm in 1951 and he and his brothers worked the mill along with their father Scottie, cutting fencing for the livestock, beams for the barn, lumber for the house and all the outbuildings. Alan left the family farm but returned with wife, Kim, in 1983 to raise their two children. Rebuilding the mill became the priority and took about one year

to complete. Alan began producing railroad ties, which were in great demand at the time, and cutting cedar cants for a re-saw mill along with beams and timbers for many homes that where built in the Sicamous area. Increasing orders for large oversized timber and beams outgrew the mill’s capability and in 1990, Alan and Kim welcomed her father Merv Siegrist as a partner in the business. Aan and Merv bought a new mill large enough and were in partnership for 10 years until Merv’s retirement. Now, more than 35 years later, Hyde Mill is operated by Alan and son Tyler and continues to provide a high-quality product to its valued customers. For more information, go to www.hydesawmill.com

LOCAL NEWS, VIEWS AND ADVERTISING

Certified service dog more than a pet Tracy Hughes Salmon Arm Observer

It looks like a driver’s license and it is just as important for Kelsey McDonald’s ability to navigate the world. The card is her provincial certification identification for her service dog, Blazen, a chocolate Labrador who assists McDonald with her anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder and obsessive compulsive disorder. Blazen is certified as a service dog through the Justice Institute of B.C., which legally allows McDonald to take him almost anywhere with her, including restaurants, stores, transportation, offices and school. McDonald must carry her service dog ID wherever she goes and if people are in doubt of Blazen’s credentials, they can call to confirm his status as registered with the Justice Institute of B.C. Under B.C. law, it is an offence to represent a dog as a guide or service dog when it is not. A conviction carries a fine of up to $3,000. But this doesn’t mean McDonald doesn’t run into barriers — especially as there are an increasing number of unregulated organizations or individuals claiming their animals are service or “emotional support” dogs. This can be confusing for people who don’t know how to identify a true service dog, and has led to situations where McDonald has had confrontations with people who attempt to limit her access to services or buildings. “Anyone can slap a vest on a dog and claim it is a service dog, or do one of these online courses and get a certificate, but without the (Justice Institute) certification, they are not actually a legal service dog. And more and more people seem to be doing this, for whatever reason, and if those animals cause problems because they are not properly trained, well, it just makes it that much harder for me when I am out with Blazen.”

Kelsey McDonald and Blazen show their B.C. service dog identification card. Businesses can ask for this identification, which looks similar to a driver licence, to prove that he is legally entitled to public access. Businesses may ask to see B.C.certification at any time, which also provides confidence to businesses that a dog and handler team meet the high public etiquette and safety standards expected of a guide dog or service dog team. (Lachlan Labere/Salmon Arm Observer) A service dog was recommended for McDonald after hospitalizations for her mental health conditions and she began to investigate options, eventually finding Blazen who was then almost threeyears-old and trained as a hunting dog. “He had an excellent personality, super calm and gentle. He came straight over to me and he didn’t leave my side. He was my boy right away,” McDonald says of Blazen. McDonald then began training Blazen herself with the assistance of a trainer who claimed to be able to train service dogs. This trainer, however, is not part of an approved program with the Justice Institute. When McDonald attempted to take classes at Okanagan College

with Blazen by her side, she learned he needed to be properly registered as a service dog with the province to be allowed to attend classes. This meant an examiner from the Justice Institute needed to test and evaluate Blazen before authorizing his status as a medical assistance dog. “The main things they test for are aggression and that the dog is under control — any signs of those things and the dog doesn’t pass,” says McDonald. Blazen needed to be able to ignore other people, dogs and food distractions, navigate busy places and small spaces without difficulty and stay when told, even if McDonald was out of sight. While some service dogs learn specific skills for blind or to

sense seizures, Blazen also has skills to help with McDonald’s anxiety. If she has a panic attack, Blazen will make contact with McDonald and not leave her side, even if she may try to push him away. In the case of her struggling with obsessive thoughts, Blazen will lick her face. “Obviously it’s hard to keep your mind on your negative thoughts with a big dog licking your face. He helps distract me out of it.” Blazen also has commands like “visit,” which means that he stands between McDonald’s legs to give her a sense of security when around other people, and “give me space,” which means for him to position his body in a crowded situation to allow McDonald to avoid feeling claustrophobic. McDonald is also wanting people to become more aware of proper etiquette around all service dogs. While many people know not to disturb a guide dog for a blind person, the same goes for any service dog. “Just because we don’t have an obvious disability, doesn’t mean that it is OK for our dogs to be distracted away from their jobs,” she says. People shouldn’t pet, talk to or try to feed a working service dog, who will generally be identified by a vest.

and

This helps the dog to know when they are on the job. McDonald also points out that there are people with unseen disabilities who don’t always appreciate being questioned about why they have a service dog. “I don’t need to share my medical history with every stranger on the street,” she says.

A new column explained

Okanagan sommelier will cover all things vino.

#JOURNALISMIS

JOURNALISMIS.ca

Shanyn Ward

I have had the pleasure of getting to know a wonderful man that goes by the name Dave. While sitting beside him on my yoga mat every morning – well OK maybe he’s there every morning, sometimes I am there more in spirit – we chat about what our days look like. I chatter on endlessly about working in the wine industry; and while Dave may now know much about wine, he listens politely to my stories. When I told him I had the opportunity to write a column he

asked me “What will you call your column?” and then with a chuckle he said, “You should call it Wineology.” What a great idea – a column on wine brought to you bi-weekly, to keep you up to date and in the loop on everything wine going on in our valley, and occasionally while I am globetrotting. Wineology – a word with no definition because it is not technically a word. You cannot look it up in the dictionary; it does not appear between wine and wing because it does not exist.

Please recycle this newspaper.

Now g Carryin

270 Hudson Avenue Salmon Arm

In true Shanyn Ward fashion I am making things up as I go, changing the definition to suit my mood and the mood of the ever-changing global wine culture. Welcome to the world of rolling green vineyards, the smell of freshly fermenting grape juice, the hum of tractors in the distance and the wind through the leaves. I have a glass of Chardonnay in my hand, what do you have? Walk with me, let’s talk for a bit. As a WSET (Wine and Spirit Education Trust) Diploma graduate, I have been fully immersed in the world of wine for quite some time. While living abroad in New Zealand I became particularly interested in the farming and production methods. I have worked in all facets of the wine industry – sommelier, vineyard worker, winery intern and currently retail. I can honestly say I will never be bored. Luckily wine also pairs perfectly with

Appliances

food and travel – two other things I love as well. What could be a better job? I got in to this industry, as many do, because I liked drinking wine; however, I have stayed in it for a bigger reason. To open a bottle of wine and enjoy a glass is great, but to actually meet the people and see the work that goes into producing that bottle is amazing, to say the least. Over 10-years work and five years of continuous study, the work will never be done and the more I learn, the more I realize I have only scratched the surface. But I will do it, I will continue to study and learn so we can meet here every other week and I can share my stories, make recommendations and answer questions. I encourage you to write me with any questions you have. I look forward to seeing you in a couple weeks. Cheers! shanynward@gmail. com

WelCome Shuswap Immigrant Services Shuswap, located at 371 Hudson St., N.E., would like to introduce more of our recent immigrants to the people of Salmon Arm. Our non-profit, non-governmental society has a mission to support and include all immigrants in the Shuswap. We hope that you will join us in welcoming these new members of our community. We would like to introduce Basia , pronounced Basha, (Barbara) Mikolajewicz to those of you in the community who have not met this recent addition to Salmon Arm. Basia emigrated from Poland five years ago as a Canadian permanent resident and has a such a romantic story attached to her reasons for being in Salmon Arm. Thirty years ago , while hitch-hiking in Germany, Basia and her friend were given a ride by a young man, with whom Basia established an instant bond during their four-hour trip. They corresponded for some time after she returned to Poland, but without the advantages of social media, the interchange fell by the wayside. After many years, Basia’s exploration on Facebook revealed the friend from so many years ago had emigrated to Canada. They made plans to meet and Basia made the journey to Salmon Arm to meet up again with Michael. They are now a couple … Almost a fairy tale! Basia left her brother and Mother in Poland after a relatively short (as they go) process to apply for citizenship. Enderby and the surrounding rural area were a bit of a culture shock to Basia after spending her previous years in one metropolitan European city! At first, Basia worked in a local institution, using her Polish education, a Masters Degree in Educational Psychology working with special needs clients, to good use. After a few years , Michael and Basia decided to live together and she moved to Salmon Arm from Enderby. Michael Strauch, an holistic counsellor and web designer is Basia’s partner in their new enterprise. They have a five-bedroom home set up for home-sharing with special-needs adults, with whom they live in a family setting. Basia enjoys photography and ethnic music of all kinds and is interested in interior design and good conversation. Basia is very interested in the experience of other immigrants and of the community that absorbs them. She is aware that a diversity of immigrants come to our town for as many different reasons as there are new arrivals. She is looking forward to the opportunity to serve on the board of directors of our local Immigrant Services organization , hoping to engage in conversations about discrimination and prejudice reduction in our community, the improvement of which can only come from talking about these issues.

ing an affair. Her movie is a complex and compassionate and often funny look at marriage, families, and aging. Moviegoers who have seen some of her earlier work, such as Double Happiness (1994), are familiar with Shum’s themes that speak to the immigrant experience but are universally relatable. Maria and Bing immigrated to Vancouver from Hong Kong many decades ago and, being a diligent and obedient wife, Maria has, until now, led a sheltered life in servitude to her husband. With no experience in the matter of unfaithfulness, or emotional expression, or human connection for that matter, she has no idea how to respond to the discovery of the panties. At first shocked, and then infuriated, she decides she needs to find out everything about this “other” woman and proceeds to follow and spy on her husband and his lover. In order to do that, she is forced, for the first time, to explore life outside the confines of her home and restricted world. Although she has no money, no car and limited English, as she ventures “outside”, Maria discovers that she is capable of more than she thought she

She is strengthened on her journey by her supportive daughter Ava, even though Ava’s dealing with her own relationship problems. No longer under her husband’s thumb, Maria has the opportunity to re-connect with her estranged son that her husband unfairly disowned and, by proxy, she was expected to disown. And most delightful are the new friends she makes when she asks them to teach her how to make money renting out parking spots near the PNE. All of these experiences contribute to Maria’s growing and expanding character; Bing soon discovers she is no longer controllable, and tension

grows between them. Shum assembled an outstanding cast for this movie, including long-time friend Sandra Oh, who made her acting debut in Double Happiness, long before her Hollywood success. She is exceptional as Ava and Tzi Ma gives a memorable performance as Bing, but it is the delightful and talented Pei Pei Cheng (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) who steals the movie. She imbues Maria with charm and grace, and conveys so much emotion with her facial expressions and body language. Amazingly, Meditation Park was shot in just 18 days in March 2017, mostly in writer/ director Mina Shum’s neighbourhood in East

Vancouver where she’s lived for years. So familiar is she in the ‘hood that she told the set decorator just to borrow lingerie from the neighbours when they needed some for a clothesline. It’s refreshing to see Vancouver playing itself, with recognizable locales around the city, including Chinatown and the Renfrew/Hastings area. Meditation Park is a co-production of the Shuswap Film Society and the Salmar Theatre. It runs for seven nights from Friday, April 13 to Thursday, April 19, with the Film Society hosting Friday and Saturday. The movie plays at 7:30 p.m. nightly and is the bargain price of $5. Can’t beat that.

Jim Elliot Salmon Arm Observer

It all started with two donkeys… The Turtle Valley Donkey Refuge Society now has a lot more than just a couple donkeys, and also two miniature horses. The refuge takes in donkeys anywhere from Alaska to Saskatchewan to Washington. Taking care of this many animals cannot be done by just two people, so the farm is taken care of by paid workers and volunteers. On April 7 and 8, the refuge held a volunteer recruitment day. This gave people more knowledge about the care and volunteer jobs needed. Shirley Mainprize said the volunteer recruitment days were a success with a great turnout thanks to the good weather on Sunday and at least nine new volunteers signed up. The newcomers bring the total number of refuge volunteers up to almost 30. New volunteers who want to help the groom donkeys will have to take a one-day care course where they are shown the basics of safely putting a halter on the animals, leading them around and cleaning their hooves. Mainprize said there is also a need for volunteers who do not want to work with the donkeys directly. The sanctuary opens for the season after the long winter on May 1 and have their first major fundraiser on May 13. For the fundraiser, the refuge will be selling Asiatic lilies as they do every year, but also pie, cheesecake and pumpkin plants. The plants, which are sold for two dollars are planted at the refuge and looked after until the purchasers return in October to pick up their future jack o’ lantern. The pumpkins that are not taken away are fed to the donkeys as a special treat the Mainprize says they love. -With files from Kayleigh Seibel

Pay close attention to your bank account, Pisces. Financial surprises might be something to look out for in the near future.

CRYPTO FUN

ARIES

A solid week is ahead for you, Aries. However, some surprises can pop up on a day when you need a little extra sunshine in the routine. Embrace the unexpected.

TAURUS

Taurus, your relations with authority figures are very good right now. Do your best to maintain this both in the short- and long-term. You will benefit from having done so. Gemini, a surprise invitation may come your way this week. You aren’t sure if you have the time or the gumption to accept at this point. But give ample thought to accepting. Cancer, even though you may want to spend time at home — and maybe make a cocoon under the covers — there are some things you need to face if you are going to move forward.

LEO

Leo, you are full of clever ideas that you are eager to share with coworkers and people at home. Pace yourself so you don’t overwhelm others with information.

VIRGO

Virgo, an opportunity to earn more money will catch your eye this week. Even if it seems a little risky, it could be well worth pursuing.

INFORMATION DESIGNED TO PROMOTE AND ENHANCE YOUR WELLBEING

Alcohol vs Sugar – which is worse? FAMILY CHIROPRACTIC Dr. Warren Gage Ask any adolescent or teenage if alcohol is detrimental for health and they will most likely all answer correctly. Ask the same group whether sugar is dangerous and you may not get back the same answer. However, research is now showing that high sugar

intake, especially the most common form, fructose, is also toxic to the liver. Fructose is the form of sugar that makes fruit taste sweet. In it’s natural state like in an apple, fructose is paired with fiber. Fiber acts to slow the absorption of fructose into the body

and helps prevent the liver from being overloaded. Fructose is now added to the majority of processed foods and when the body receives high doses of fructose that is not buffered with fiber, it quickly overwhelms the liver. For years doctors have stressed the importance of avoiding excess alcohol due to the life-threatening effects on the liver. However, since 1980 there are 2 diseases that are rap-

idly increasing due to the increased consumption of fructose. These are non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), where there is an excess build up of fat in the liver, and non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) which is basically scarring of the liver. Both of these disease processes often lead to liver failure and since 1980 they have more than doubled. In fact, NASH is now the 3rd leading reason for

liver transplant surgery in America and is on track to become number one. As for NAFLD, it is conservatively estimated that 31% of American adults and 13% of kids suffer from it. The way to tell if you or your children have a liver problem is simple. If you have a “sugar belly” which means your waist is larger than your hips, then your body has been storing excess sugar in the form of fat. Not

only does this make your clothes not fit well, but more importantly this excess fat disrupts the hormone balance in the body. This also is implicated in a number of serious diseases such as heart disease, stroke, diabetes, cancer, and Alzheimer’s. So, it is imperative that every man woman and child consciously work on limiting the amount of processed foods and specifically fructose every day.

Babies do not develop regular sleep cycles until about six months of age. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, newborns may only sleep one or two hours at a time but still sleep roughly 16 hours per day. The AAP notes that newborn sleep occurs in stages and is divided about equally between rapid eye movement (REM) and non-REM sleep. The first stage of newborn sleep is characterized by drowsiness as babies begin to fall asleep. That drowsiness is followed by REM sleep, during which babies may twitch or jerk their arms or legs. During this stage, parents may notice their babies’ eyes moving under closed eyelids. In addition, a condition called “normal Over 10,000 ads - updated daily bcclassified.com

periodic breathing of infancy,” in which babies’ breathing can be irregular and even stop for five to 10 seconds before starting again with rapid breathing that continues for 10 to 15 seconds, may occur. The rapid breathing during the REM stage will be followed by regular breathing until the cycle begins anew and repeats itself. The AAP advises parents that, during the pauses of normal periodic breathing of infancy, babies’ skin color does not change and parents need not be concerned. The third stage of newborn sleep is light sleep, a less active phase during which babies’ breathing becomes more regular. The fourth and fifth stages are deep nonREM sleep. During these stages, babies fall into a sleep that progressively deepens to a point where babies may be difficult to wake. KH185932

Not a day goes by that we don’t think of you. Forever in our hearts. Cathy, Todd, Colin and Family

SARNA, John (Jack) Stanley

December 1, 1924 – April 4, 2018 With great sadness, we announce the passing of John who died peacefully at the Shuswap Lake Hospital on April 4, 2018. He is survived by his three loving children, daughters Veronica (Johnson), Mimi (Barbour) and his son Dan. He was blessed with five grandchildren who will miss him terribly and five wonderful great-grandchildren who made him very proud. Born in Elfros, Saskatchewan – December 1, 1924 – John met his devoted wife, Evelyn, at the tender age of twenty, married her, and after 18 years, they moved to British Columbia. Living in Vancouver, a short time on Vancouver Island and a stint in the Yukon, John and his wife finally settled in the Shuswap area. John was a great friend to many and all who knew him, benefited from his kindness, his wonderful gentleness and easy laughter. He had a smile that lit every room he entered. In his later years, though handicapped with blindness, he never gave up and led a full life until failing health made that impossible. He became involved in the community and was a longtime member and president of the Salmon Arm Lions Club. He was also involved with the Seniors Clubs and various groups in Canoe and in Salmon Arm. John was a beautiful soul who will be loved and forever remembered by his family and friends. He welcomed many into his heart and treated them like were his own. His giving heart and kind wisdom will be sadly missed. There was never a man more loved. There’s no doubt, God will be waiting to welcome him with open arms.

Mark Renner

Douglas Sutherland Main

It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing of Mark Renner, on Saturday March 31, 2018 at the age of 66 years. Mark was a beloved husband, father, papa and friend. He had a short battle with an aggressive cancer. Mark was born February 28, 1952 to parents Harold and Marion Renner. He is survived by his loving wife Sue, daughter Amanda Renner, son Adam Renner (Shaili), daughter Nicole Andersen (Rob) and his eight beautiful grandchildren, Sophia, Dreyden, Ella, Kyra, Lilly-Ana, Violet, Cooper and Judah. Also his son-in-law Chad Isaac, sister Harty Johnstone, as well as many nieces and nephews. Mark spent his first 41 years living in the Cloverdale and Langley area, where he married his high school sweetheart, Sue. He built his first of many chicken barns, while pursuing his work as a lineman with B.C. Hydro. He worked long hard hours, but never forgot to make time for his family. Together Mark and Sue decided to start a new adventure with their family by moving to Enderby, B.C. in 1993. Mark continued expanding his commercial chicken operation as well as working part time in his line trade. Mark took great pride in his children and raised them in a healthy “farm kid� environment with a twist of fun. He instilled a good work ethic, strong morals and family values in all of his children. He never passed up the opportunity to brag about what his children and then grandchildren were up to. He enjoyed many hobbies over the years and especially liked to be outdoors and “doing stuff� in his shop. He also enjoyed biking, boating, golf, camping and quading just to name of few of his interests. Deciding that 40 years of chicken farming was enough he sold the farm to “retire� in 2014. Mark felt blessed to be able to share his time between his retirement home at White Lake as well as his place in Mexico. He was grateful to be able to enjoy his life with his wife, children, grandchildren and friend’s, saying many times “that he was a lucky man�. A Funeral Service will take place April 21, 2018 at 2:00 p.m. at Bowers Funeral Chapel, Salmon Arm. A reception will follow the service allowing family and friends to continue sharing memories. Online condolences may be sent to the family through Mark’s obituary at www. bowersfuneralservice.com.

Doug passed away with his family by his side on Saturday night. He was an amazing husband, dad, grandpa, brother, uncle and friend. He will be deeply missed by his daughters Karin of Salmon Arm and Lori (Rod) of Lethbridge; sons Brian (Michelle) of Kelowna and Gordon of New Westminster; his grandchildren Tristin (Peter), Kaira (Taylor), Josh, Kali, Ben, Adam and Jake. He will also be missed by nieces, nephews and dear friends. Doug was pre-deceased by his wife Shirra, sister Peg and brother Sandy. Doug grew up in Chilliwack and at Cultus Lake. He was a lifeguard and swam competitively throughout University. In 1960 Doug moved to Prince Rupert for his ďŹ rst teaching job, where he met Shirra. They were married in 1962 and moved to Enderby in 1968. Doug taught for most of his career at A L Fortune Secondary School and then opened the ďŹ rst Storefront School in Enderby where he spent the last four years of his teaching career. He retired in 1995 and spent the next years volunteering in many capacities for his community and traveling to as many places as he could. Doug’s family was his main focus and he made sure that his kids had wonderful experiences throughout their life, he was involved in their activities in any capacity possible. The Main family spent their summers camping and traveling all around Canada to visit famlly and friends. Neighbourhood children were always welcome at Mainstay to play, eat or visit. After Shirra passed away suddenly in 2010 Doug started to volunteer with Habitat for Humanity. He was able to go on 9 trips with them, mostly in Central America. In between his trips he was proud to volunteer at many swim meets throughout Southern B.C., with the Food Bank, his Church, as well as canvassing for various organizations. He was able to be involved in those activities right up until this year. A service for Doug will be held at St. Andrews United Church in Enderby B.C. on Saturday April 14, 2018 at 2:00PM. There will be a reception/tea to follow at the Senior’s Center. In lieu of owers the family asks that donations be made to St. Andrews United Church or to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada or the Canadian Cancer Society.

Senior puts up a fight at karate championships. Jodi Brak Salmon Arm Observer

March 31 was a beautiful, sunny day in Las Vegas, Nevada, home of the Ozawa Cup International Karate Tournament. Denise Cullen from Salmon Arm competed in the Senior Women’s Black Belt Kata Division, bringing home a bronze medal. As the eldest female black-belt competitor at the tournament, she has shown that karate is a sport that can be practiced at any age! This was the 37th annual competition and over 400 athletes gathered from across the U.S. as well as from Canada, Ireland, South Africa and other countries around the world. -Submitted by Holly Raczynski

Deadline for tickets is Monday, April 16.

Ringette team vying for gold Salmon Arm players part of Okanagan squad. Jodi Brak Salmon Arm Observer

Jordyn Turner and Courtney Bacon of Salmon Arm join the Thompson-Okanagan Ringette League’s Team Force at the 2018 Save-On-Foods Canadian Ringette Championships in Winnipeg, MB from April 8-14. This event is the 40th national championships and it commemorates a homecoming of the first ever Canadian Ringette Championships which were also held in Winnipeg in 1979. Team Force has played four games so far in the championships, coming out to a bit of a rocky start but gaining some traction in their last two games. In their first matchup on April 9, against the Alberta Zone 5 Team Grit, the B.C. squad went down 8-1, followed by a second 8-6 loss against Team Saskatchewan. Jordyn Turner made two assists during the match

against Saskatchewan, and Courtney Bacon scored a goal with her only shot during the game. On April 10 Team Force played their first game against Team Quebec, taking an 11-4 loss. Salmon Arm’s Jordyn Turner put up two assists

during the game. Their second game on April 10, against Team P.E.I., saw the B.C. Team Force come out on top in a 7-1 victory against the eastern islanders. Both Turner and Bacon assisted on goals during the game against P.E.I..

Team Force’s next match is against one of the top-rated teams in the tournament, Ontario’s Waterloo Wildfire, April 11, followed by Manitoba Magic that evening. April 12 will see Team Force against Team Alberta and Team Manitoba.

For those folk who really love the outdoor experience, are attuned to, or belong to a nature society, it can be frustrating knowing it takes time to mitigate, or repair events like development in a park for a road, or accessing a hiking trail now land designated for development, etc. But time stops for no man, and looking at the bigger picture, three happenings that affect fish and wildlife come to mind. Big-horned sheep, have always been native to the Mt. Paul area off the Yellowhead highway at Kamloops. Major development on the Kamloops Indian band lands has dramatically pushed the sheep grazing and habitat, so the animals took to crossing the busy highway to a golf driving range for the green grass, with several animals struck, and killed including large rams. Public outcry demanded action and a fence be erected to stop the carnage. After

fish, wildlife and lands branch kept passing on who was going to pay, a prominent construction company boss from Merritt was willing to put up $50,000 and his crew to do the job. Finally a fence was built. Although Cathy McGregor was environment minister a few years back, for just a short time, I attended a special meeting in Kamloops, regarding the spiny-ray perch invasion, by the so-called “bucket brigade, who had put perch in nine Interior lakes. Biologists attended, along with seasoned Kamloops Fish and Game members, some who were retired biologists. It was a heated go-round, as a senior biologist, said their piscavore permits had expired for the use of rotenone two seasons previous. Rotenone is derived from a tree in South America used by natives to stun fish in streams, effecting the gill structure. It is used widely to treat lakes with invasive species, in the U.S. MOE staff

would have to take a course to handle the stuff. Meanwhile, for two high water springs, creeks like Sinmax which flows from Forrest Lake (perch infested) close to Barriere, into Adams Lake at Squam Bay could carry perch, which it did. Fry traps, set in the lake caught perch. Skamama Lake held perch, with Hiuihill (Bear Creek) flowing into the Adams River. The Adams flows into Shuswap Lake. A year later, children at Sorrento were possibly catching perch off a dock. Perch are prolific, laying thousands of eggs, and also predatory, using warm-water bays for food. It is also rearing and feeding habitat for salmon fry and fingerlings. Perch also spawn in bays. While boating, If persons see a milky or cloudy location, call it into MOE Kamloops. My suspicion with anglers on the big lake using yellow-orange buck tails successfully, may indicate large trout, are eating or chasing, perch fry. This signals a dramatic change for salmon and trout numbers into future fishing opportunity. Salmon fry are con-

sumed by mergansers, birds, mink, otters, predatory trout, lake trout and course fish. Thompson-Chilco steelhead; This is a tough one, as little progress has been made, in regard to enhancing stocks. Only 145 fish returned on the Thompson-Chilco 45. Steelhead run with the chum salmon on the lower Fraser River, and are taken by Native gill net as a by catch. Mid canyon, they are taken in the gill net fishery. Big argument is, will a hatchery help increase numbers? Meetings with all parties including government biologist suggests a hatchery will take away the wild stock, once unique. Some blame warming ocean conditions on poor survival. Others blame seals and sea lions. My solution is putting pressure on MOE as historically it was a historic Native food fishery, and First Nations, taking the Province to court over infringement of fishing rights! Slowly, we are losing our heritage, wildlife, fish, for development, and personal gain in a province so beautiful. Hopefully smarter minds will prevail down the road!
