Building a new downtown elementary school also on the agenda. Martha Wickett Salmon Arm Observer

The life of the SASCU Downtown Activity Centre as a property of School District 83 may be coming to an end. But accompanying the end of an era could come the birth of a new elementary school. School District 83’s official trustee Mike McKay reports that an information and feedback session will be held at the DAC on Wednesday, May 2 at 6:30 p.m., where the future of the former school and plans for an elementary school will be discussed. Plans on the agenda include: sale of the DAC, moving the Storefront School to the main floor of the new District Education Support Centre – also on Shuswap Street; and making a request to the Ministry of Education for capital

funds for a new elementary school downtown. Kim Sinclair, executive director of Aspiral Youth Partners Association, which took over managing the DAC when it closed as a school in order to create a community centre, would also like the public to come to the meeting. He says the partnership with the school district over the past 15 years has been a great one which he is sorry to see possibly coming to an end. “Our hope is that the community will come out if this is something important, that they will come out and let the school district know that… I think the power of the community is the voice that needs to be heard.” McKay outlines the background of the plan to sell the DAC, which was closed as an elementary school in 2003. The board received updated approval from the Education Minster

in October 2015 to initiate proceedings for the sale. At that time, the board decided not to sell the property. “Currently, much of the building is leased and we have our Salmon Arm Storefront program operating there as well. While it is fully utilized, it is no longer justifiable for the school district to continue using operating funds to keep the building operating,” McKay states. “Lease revenues cover many of the ongoing costs, but the district must annually allocate operating budget and time to maintain the property. I believe those funds should be made available to support other budget priorities. Most urgent is that we know there are several pending building and site improvements that would have a significant impact on our district’s Continued on Page A3

Blind Bay shooter changes his story at trial didn’t know what I was getting into. I wish it hadn’t happened.” “You don’t want Mr. Davis there telling other inmates you’re responsible for him sitting in jail,” Crown prosecutor Neil Flanagan put to Barnes.

Tim Petruk Kamloops This Week

The admitted gunman in the fatal shooting of a Shuswap drug dealer changed his story drastically in a Kamloops courtroom on Monday, a move a prosecutor said was made by the killer to protect himself behind bars. Nick Larsen, 24, was shot to death on a quiet Blind Bay street on June 1, 2011. Jordan Barnes pleaded guilty in 2016 to second-degree murder in connection with Larsen’s death and was sentenced to life in prison with no chance of parole for 10 years. Barnes and Jeremy Davis were arrested and charged in 2014 at the culmination of an undercover RCMP investigation. Davis, who is also charged with second-degree murder in connection with Larsen’s death, had his trial begin in February with the testimony of Barnes on behalf of the Crown. On Feb. 6, Barnes said he and Larsen became involved in a turf war over drug sales in the Blind Bay area.

GRAND OPENING File photo Police and members of the Serious Crimes Unit search for evidence at the scene of the fatal shooting of Nicholas Larsen that took place on Blind Bay Road. Barnes said he met Larsen hours before the murder while attempting to buy cocaine. Court heard Larsen kicked in the door of Barnes’ Sorrento home and pointed a handgun at him. “He said I can’t be dealing in this town,” Barnes said at the time. “I wanted to get half an ounce. He thought I was moving into his territory. I just remember seeing a gun and seeing red. I snapped.” In court in February, Barnes said he asked Davis for a ride, hoping to catch and “beat up” Larsen. During his earlier testimony, Barnes

said Davis slammed on the brakes of his GMC Jimmy when they spotted Larsen’s vehicle. When that happened, he said, a gun slid out from under the passenger seat and he left the SUV and opened fire on Larsen. In February, Barnes said he didn’t know who the gun belonged to or why it was in Davis’ vehicle. In court on Monday, Barnes said the gun was his and he knowingly took it before going out to look for Larsen. Crown prosecutor Neil Flanagan suggested the change in

Barnes’ story was a result of his fear of potential retribution if Davis, who remains free on bail, is housed in the same federal penitentiary as him. Barnes replied by saying he is the sole person responsible for Larsen’s death. “I don’t want to put someone away who shouldn’t be put away and that could piss him off, yeah,” he said. “I don’t want to be labelled a rat for something someone didn’t do, for something I’ve already taken responsibility for … He didn’t know what he was getting himself into and I

Sicamous takes a look at using wood-waste energy Jim Elliot Eagle Valley News

Sicamous is looking into using wood waste to heat buildings and maybe even generate electricity. At their meeting on April 11, the Sicamous council adopted a bioenergy opportunity report and directed district staff to look into federal funding through the clean energy for remote and rural communities program. In the spring of 2017, the district commissioned Urban Systems, an engineering, environmental science and urban design firm to investigate the feasibility of bringing a community renewable energy source to the district. The report details two possible options, a district heating system located near Finlayson Park and a combined heat and power facility in the industrial park. The proposed site in the industrial park is directly across the road from the B.C. Hydro substation. According to the report, the location is potentially optimal for an electricity-generating facility. A biomass-burning heat

and power facility at that location could also provide heat to the existing Twin Anchors facility and also any buildings in the industrial park constructed in the future. The second option, a district heating system that would not generate electricity, could provide heat for the nearby shopping centre, Parkview Elementary, Parkland Building Supplies and the rec centre. An alternative heating system would be helpful for the area near Finlayson Park – according to the report, the rec centre alone spends $40,000 per year on propane and $60,000 on electricity. The report states the district heating system is more immediately feasible than the combined heat and power facility in the industrial park. It says both projects are potentially financially viable, but that the users for the heating-only system already exist while the facility in the industrial park relies on buildings that have not been constructed yet in order to be financially viable. Wood heating pel-

The District of Sicamous is investigating ways to harness waste wood as a clean energy source. (File photo) lets and other sources would be an affordable fuel source that the report says are plentiful in the area due to the active forestry operations in the region. Three bulk suppliers of heating pellets located within 100 kilometres of Sicamous are identified in the report: Tolko Industry Ltd. in Kamloops, Pinnacle Pellet’s Armstrong facility and the Adams Lake sawmill. It acknowledged there may be other smaller suppliers as well. The district will seek funding for a biomass project through the clean energy for rural and remote communities program, a federal funding source that supports projects which

reduce fossil fuel use. “We’re trying to find some serious capital money. This is a very good federal program and I believe it will be under-subscribed, there’s just a lot of communities that won’t pursue this because of the work involved and the complexity,” town manager Evan Parliament said of the clean energy program. Parliament added the program is designed to help rural communities which are not serviced with natural gas, and Sicamous fits the bill. Urban Systems has been invited to May 9 council meeting to field questions on the project. Fortis B.C. is also invited to the meeting.

Road maintenance to begin in May Lachlan Labere Salmon Arm Observer

Salmon Arm council accepted tenders of more than $800,000 for annual road maintenance and approved the purchase of a $12,000 outhouse for the South Canoe trail head. Okangan Aggregates Ltd.’s winning bid of $767,800 plus taxes made them the city’s top pick for the annual paving program, including supply and placement of asphalt. The bid was under the city’s $940,000 budget, and the lowest of four (with the highest coming in at $1,175,362). To the Salmon Arm Secondary youth council members in the gal-

lery, Coun. Tim Lavery emphasized how the $767,800 is for around 5.8 kilometres of road. “(That’s) 125,000 a kilometre, roughly,” said Lavery, “And these are some of the practical decisions in terms of running the city and looking at taxation and taxation rates and parcel tax rates to pay this off.” Asked about the cost and how it compares to last year, city engineering and public works director Rob Niewenhuizen said there’s about a two- to threeper cent different from last year. Adding to Lavery’s comment, Coun. Kevin Flynn suggested that

per capita, Salmon Arm might have the largest road network in B.C. – 250 kilometres over 192 sq/kms. “We might have the fewest people funding the most roads, so not only is it ridiculously expensive to fund roads, our road network… is extremely costly as well,” said Flynn. The paving work is expected to begin sometime in May and be completed by October. For the city’s annual crack sealing program, the winning bid came from Back to Black sealcoating at $173,250 over three years ($42,000

for roads/ $15,750 for the airport each year). Again, the winning bid was under the city’s budget ($54,355 for roads/$25,000 for airport). For the new South Canoe trail head outhouse, at the recommendation of staff, council approved sole-sourcing to Leko Precast for $12,000 plus taxes. Niewenhuizen explained the city already has three smilar facilities installed in the community.” “I’ve wanted a permanent bathroom out there for years and years,” said Coun. Chad Eliason. “Finally, glad to see it’s coming through.”

Scammers back in force

It’s tax return time, when scammers prey on people’s fear of being hit with a huge bill because they may have done something wrong on their taxes. Seniors in particular tend to be vulnerable to the unscrupulous who call in an attempt to extract money. Tax scams generally have a few things in common, though there is a range of sophistication. Often, they’ll start with a phone call, either with a person on the end or an automated message, that informs the hapless receiver the call originates from the CRA. After that claim elevates the listener’s heart rate, they’re told they owe money for some reason. That is typically followed by the threat of arrest or other legal action if the person doesn’t pay up immediately – as in, give us your credit card number over the phone right now or find the RCMP at your door. Of course, the CRA does not act in this manner. They will not phone you if there is something wrong with your taxes. They will not demand immediate payment over the phone. They will never demand payment in bitcoin (yes, really, scammers are this brazen). They will not send the RCMP to arrest you. In fact, the CRA will not even use the phone to make original contact. They use Canada Post. Yep, good old snail mail. So, if you get one of these calls, hang up. If you get scammed, call the RCMP. As embarrassed as you may feel, don’t let others walk in your shoes. -Black Press

Beaver Cleaver in person sitting in the boat with me might bring? Some habits are more of a statement than a superstitious belief. The first thing I do when I arrive at a lake to go fishing is take my cell phone out of my pocket and put it in the glove compartment of my vehicle. The second is to stand there in front of the cabin and take a good, long look at the lake. In part, I am looking to see what insect hatches may be coming off. I also want to see if there are any fish jumping or feeding on the surface. To a greater extent, however, I am in my mind’s eye looking out at the next few days of my life. In some ways I am also communing with nature, with the fish, the dragonflies buzzing in and out among the reeds and the birds that are singing away in the bullrushes. It is at this point that I am also inclined to say a

short, silent prayer to the Creator, Mother Nature and the spirits that whisper to me in the breeze that blows across the water. In my prayer I am not beyond asking for some added good luck. There are few people I know that would ever accuse me of being organized. However, having said that, when I’m in my boat, I like to have everything in its place. I stow my gear in the bow and, once in the boat, put the Woods bag down on the floor right in front by my feet. A cooler with my lunch always sits on the seat beside me to my left. My net is always on the righthand side, handle stuffed into the seat brace. Call me superstitious and/or a creature of habit, but all I know is that when I have everything in its proper place, it seems to bring me good luck.

Shuswap gold rush history fever SHUSWAP PASSION Jim Cooperman With news that the next exhibit in the R.J. Haney Heritage Village and Museum will be about gold, I began doing some research into the Shuswap gold rush that began as early as 1865, when miners began heading to the Big Bend on the Columbia River via Seymour Arm and to Cherry Creek. While the story of the gold rush town of Ogdenville, which was later named Seymour City, is well known, there is little information available about the gold mining that occurred in Scotch Creek likely by miners returning empty handed from the Big Bend. There are just three references to the first Scotch Creek gold rush. In July of 1866, Dr. Henry Featherstone wrote to the Colonial Secretary, “When Adams Lake and Scotch [Creek} diggings were first discovered, it was thought another Williams Creek had been struck…” The Adams Lake diggings likely refer to Nikwikwaia Creek also known as Gold Creek, however despite all the prospecting, little gold

was ever found there. The March 5, 1867 Colonist newspaper reported, “Mining on Scotch Creek and Tranquille River will be carried on with vigor this year, and with every prospect of the most favorable results. The former has prospected well and ten claims are recorded.” In December 1871, the Colonist reported that the Scotch Creek diggings were not new and “In 1866 Dr. Chisholm found a company of men making $8 per day.” Six years later, a Geological Survey report noted, “Scotch Creek, flowing into Shuswap Lake from the north, has yielded some heavy gold, but no mining is going on there.” The next influx of miners to Scotch Creek occurred after the completion of the Canadian Pacific Railway line in 1885. Scotch Creek was the site of a construction camp that housed loggers and sawmill workers who were cutting timbers for the railway, many of whom were Chinese. After being laid off from their railway work, some men likely headed up the creek in

search of gold via the former Secwepemc trail that was used by the first miners in the 1860s. The Annual Reports of the Department of Mines provide some information about the second Scotch Creek gold rush. In January 1886, Mr. Dodd reported two companies making wages on a bar about ten miles from the mouth, with the gold in coarse pellets and nuggets. He also noted, “About twenty white men will winter on the creek and between fifty and sixty Chinese.” The news was more optimistic by December 1886, when Dodd reported that Scotch Creek has become a new mining camp with prospects of future improvement, “The creek is steep and contains large rocks with make the working expensive. The supply of water is abundant. The gold is bright and heavy and sells for $17 an ounce here. My estimate of $22,000 as the yield of this creek during the past season may be taken as approximately correct.” By the following year, the Scotch Creek gold rush was nearly over, as Dodd reported in December, “On Scotch Creek some $3,000 was taken out by white miners, who have abandoned the

property and only half a dozen Chinese were left at the Creek last month.” We can only imagine what the community of Scotch Creek looked like in the mid-1880s, as there are few clues. The February 25, 1886 Inland Sentinel reported that “20 odd whitemen and a number of Chinamen are busy preparing for active mining,” and that “the scarcity of supplies will soon be remedied as Mr. Chas E Williams is opening

Mining on Scotch Creek and Tranquille River will be carried on with vigor this year, and with every prospect of the most favorable results.

a large store at a convenient point for freighting and camps.” Two weeks later, the newspaper reported on the Scotch Creek stabbing case, when his partner, Charles Arbuckle after a night of drinking and fighting, stabbed William Lee. In 1965, CBC broadcaster Imbert Orchard interviewed the legend-

ary North Shuswap early pioneer, Jack Bischoff. In reply to the question, “When did the Scotch Creek gold digging start,” Jack replied, “I think it was in 1864.” He then went on to relate a story he heard in 1930 from an old-timer about his visit to Scotch Creek in 1886 when he witnessed a card shark trying to lead a cow on a rope up the gangplank and instead ended up in the water after the cow circled him. From these few anecdotes, one can hypothesize that during its brief gold rush, Scotch Creek likely included a store, a saloon and other shacks left over from its days as a railway camp. There was a wellworn trail on the east side of the creek winding its way up to what is now called “Chinese flats.” Locals report that the once visible outlines of cabins are likely gone and all that can be found are piles of rocks that once directed water flows used for placer mining. A few artifacts were recovered years ago, including a vase and an opium tin. Perhaps one day, the Scotch Creek gold rush could become part of the North Shuswap’s identity, linking its past to the present and the future.

Hikers broaden horizons

Jodi Brak Salmon Arm Observer

The Shuswap Hiker Ladies have been setting out upon the trails together as a group since 2006, exploring the vast wilderness of the Shuswap and helping to showcase its beauty to those unsure where to start. Effective May 1, their group will now be known as the Shuswap Nature Hikers and welcome all comers, male and female, to join them on their weekly wilderness excursions. Beginning as a group of ladies in the Blind Bay area who got together to learn how to play snooker, their

billiards gatherings quickly headed outdoors as the summer sun hit the Shuswap. The group became fascinated with getting out to explore the trails, and things just grew from there. Eventually they expanded their membership and began showing others some of the their favourite hiking trails. “It’s interesting because this is a very transient area, there is a lot of people that move here from all over the place, and they come here and they don’t know the trails,” says Joyce Sotski, organizer of the group. “We’ve got some very hardy ladies,

they come out no matter what the weather, you can always count on them.” This is one of the Shuswap Nature Hikers’ key commitments: to not let the weather interfere with their weekly hiking schedule. “We hike every Friday, winter and summer, come rain or hail or sleet or snow,” Sotski says. “We hike because we are in love with the beautiful scenery here in the Shuswap and because we enjoy nature and the great outdoors.”

They set out to complete 51 hikes each year. They take a brief respite during the Christmas season, but otherwise can be found on the local trails every Friday. Sotski holds up the connection to nature built through these weekly excursions as one of the many benefits of their commitment to hiking the trails so regularly, alongside the health and fitness benefits. “For me, personally, it’s important because nature is so beautiful, because it gives you a

sense of wholeness and it’s just so peaceful out there,” Sotski says. She also feels that the experience has brought her closer to the area she now calls home. “Every time we go hiking we say ‘we’re so lucky,’” she says. “Meaning we’re so lucky to live here.” Anyone interested in becoming a member of the newly minted Shuswap Nature Hikers can visit to add their name to the group’s mailing list, or send an email to Joyce@

Seniors nutrition program funded Jim Elliot Salmon Arm Observer

The Provincial government is getting behind a South Shuswap Health Services Society (SSHSS) project that promises to help educate South Shuswap Seniors about nutrition. The project, called helping seniors access nutritious and safe food, received a $15,000 through the province’s age-friendly communities grant program. The funds were applied for by the Columbia Shuswap Regional District of behalf of the health services society.


SHSS director Sue McCrae says the program will educate seniors living in the South Shuswap on a variety of nutrition-related topics including the ways dietary needs change as they age and where to access locally grown food.

“I think for anybody who can access locally grown produce it’s a bonus. It supports the local economy in addition to providing food that’s safe and you know where it was grown and how it was grown,” McCrae said. McCrae added the program will feature an interactive element where participants can help prepare food. Dr. Jerre Paquette co-author of Eat to Save your Life will be facilitating the program; McCrae said he is preparing it now. “We’re excited to receive the grant so we can continue with our work,” McCrae said.

North Okanagan Shuswap School District No. 83 would like to invite you to: Information & Feedback Session on Downtown Activity Centre May 2 at 6:30 p.m. at the DAC In October 2015, the board received approval by the Minister of Education to initiate proceedings for the sale of the DAC. At that time, the board decided not to sell the property (this building was closed as an elementary school in 2003). Currently, much of the building is leased as well as being home to the Salmon Arm Storefront program. While it is fully utilized, it is no longer justifiable for the school district to continue using operating funds to keep the building operating. The district’s draft plan, which will be shared in more detail at the meeting, includes: • providing information, gathering and reviewing feedback from the meeting and preparing the documents necessary if the sale process is to proceeds • repurposing part of the main floor at DESC to facilitate Storefront School students and staff • taking the steps required to make a capital program request to the Ministry for a new elementary school in downtown Salmon Arm. Funds from current property sales would contribute to such a project. The district owns an appropriate site for an elementary school on the field directly behind the DESC. (Please note to renovate the DAC, and bring it to current building standards so it could be used as a school, are estimated at more than $8 million.)

Be kind to nature...

Recycle your newspaper.

I had a moment in my garden last weekend. It was overcast and the wind had picked up. I turned to see my four-year-old “helping” me in the garden: throwing seeds up in the air, she watched in wonder as they blew haphazardly in the wind, scattering on the ground. I was unsure if I

One important benefit of gardening is that it connects us to our food source. We become aware of the time, space, work and resources that go into producing food. Growing food increases our respect for both food and our environment. In fact, I would argue that people who complain that healthy food is too expensive have not tried growing it for themselves. When you do, suddenly, the cheap bags of potatoes or produce become offensive. How can we charge so little money for so much work?

should scold her for wasting seeds or let it go as experiential learning. Maybe the seeds would sprout somewhere in my yard. Or maybe this moment in harmony with nature would inspire her to become a farmer. In the end, I thought, “Oh well, if it doesn’t work out, I can buy my food from the store.”

Cleaning up on Earth Day Jim Elliot Eagle Valley News

Sicamous residents celebrated Earth Day by cleaning up the community’s lakeshore on April 22. Approximately 20 volunteers walked the beach in the morning fog collecting any garbage they could find. The cleanup was organized by Nicole Albisser. She is well acquainted with the beach as she operates a standup paddle board and yoga business and so wants to keep the area clean

for her clientele and the numerous others who enjoy the beach during the summer months. “We got out lots of stuff and for just being out here one-and a half hours I think we did a good job.” Albisser said volunteers collected styrofoam, cans, plastic bags, and a few tires from the beach. “I think it’s a great thing to do it on Earth Day as we’re here to honour our earth and respect it and be more mindful of how we’re using it,” she said. Albisser said she hopes to or-

ganize an Earth Day cleanup every year. She says a clean up after the lake water recedes in the fall, exposing more beach and possibly more garbage, is another possibility. Susan McGee, one of the volunteers cleaning the beach said she found it surprisingly free of litter as she scoured the area below the railway bridge. Young Lenora Kasick, another of the volunteers, came away with a bucket packed with cigarette butts, styrofoam from docks, plastic bags and other refuse that washed up on shore.

Heathy Spot Pets opens

Healthy Spot Pet Nutrition and Supply, which is celebrating their 10th anniversary in Vernon, opened a location in Salmon Arm in the former Animal House location across from the Mall

at Piccadilly. “We just specialize in cats and dogs,” says owner Andrea Lauridsen. “We don’t sell animals, just healthy food and treats, and accessories.” Andrea says the store is still undergoing some renovations.

We have quality kibbles, freeze dried products and raw food.” They also carry specialty toys and accessories. “One thing we carry is Ruff Wear from Oregon. It’s an outstanding product for outdoor enthusiasts: running leashes, technical harnesses, and simple life jackets.”

Customers will also find natural pet remedies with the vision, urinary, and immune support being some of the most popular. Andrea and her husband, John, are looking forward to being active in the community with various programs and fundraisers. “We do a program where people can donate a dog or cat crate. We sell it at a very reasonable rate and all the proceeds go to charity. We’re very focused on customer experience and building relationships and trust with our customers. We have an easy return policy. If something doesn’t work for your cat or dog, we take it back.” Their hours are 9:30 am - 5:30 pm, Monday through Saturday. They are located at 1050 10th Avenue SW.

Rugby squads kick off the season SAS Jewels vs. Penticton April 10

The girls fought hard against Penticton High School, ending the game in a tense downto-the-wire moment. The score was 15-10, and Penticton was inches from our tryline. Supported by amazing tackles from Grace Fulton and Eve Labranche, the girls maintained a defensive wall that Penticton could not penetrate, and they won the game. SAS were organized and spread wide across the field, giving them a hefty advantage over Penticton, who were clumped around the ball; this gave us some excellent runs from Alex Johnson and Lanie Greenhough. Despite this advantage, the girls had a tough time getting the ball out wide to open space. Defensively, the girls were rucking hard, fast, and held a strong line that was tough for Penticton to break.

The girls struggled to keep their regular speed and organization against these tough opponents. They were down four tries to none by the second half, which was a blow to their morale; however, the Jewels’ team captain, Esita Qiodravu, managed to organize the girls and fight back hard. The majority of the second half saw the Jewels staying in Mount Boucherie’s end zone. The girls out-played, outmaneuvered, and out-tackled the opponents. Amazing drives from Mataia Makela, Ally Pollock, and Kennedy Novakowski showed their opponents that even a small team from Salmon Arm can hit hard and play well. Even though the girls outplayed Mount Boucherie in the second half, they only managed to score one try, and could not catch up to the mighty lead from the start of the game. Esita, deservedly, was our MVP.

SAS Jewels vs. Mt Boucherie April Junior boys at Ful12 The SAS Jewels ton Okanagan 7’s Rugby Team had a tournament tough slog in Mount Boucherie. The girls were twice their size, and were hitting hard.

Jr Golds who had an impressive 7’s game against Penticton in the Okanagan final with Ashley Bakema blowing through one tackle to run the route of 90 yards to score. Dennis Comeault put his head down and blew the Pen High player back from the ruck which resulted in Spencer Paquette doing a pick and run passing to sprinter Carl Crawford to score in the corner. Caleb Aylard, starting fly half for the Jr boys, made huge tackles to stop the other teams in their tracks. The SAS Junior boys rugby 7’s team goes to Provincials on April 27 at Saint George’s, facing the top players across the province to see how they measure up.

SAS Golds vs. Mission April 17

Rugby is a tough sport, not meant for the weak or timid. Yes you can get bumps and bruises which are all character building to make players stronger, smarter and faster. The SAS Senior boys Golds rugby squad went to Okanagan Mission Secondary to play with heart and determination against a team that far out numbered the Golds. Going with

(Image contributed by Jaelynn Spencer) a committed 13 players to go up against a bench of 24 is a challenge that few have met successfully. The Golds never gave up and had one injury. The score is not what every game is about, sometimes it is the team, the camaraderie and the desire to play a sport that once it is in your blood you will never forget. The senior Golds’ next home game is May 1.

SAS Jewels vs. Kelowna Secondary April 18

The girls had a slow start in the first half; they had trouble finding their regular organization and driving force. Even without their usual skill, SAS managed to find gaps and gain tremendous runs. The girls brought it together in the second half, engaging in smarter rucks, spread-

ing wide, and maintaining possession of the ball. The girls won four tries to one. Tries were scored by Dawson Lewis, Nadine Johnston, Lea Labranche, and Lanie Greenhough. The MVP, however, was Tori Gollen, whose intense vigour and strong communication led the team to immense gains downfield. Her drives and her rucks enabled stupendous runs for Ava Wutke, who ran the ball nearly ninety yards throughout the game. Again, despite the girls having a wider line (giving them open space), the girls had trouble passing the ball out, which would have earned them even more tries. The final score was 20-7. -Submitted by Greg Seed

Understanding the role of a sommelier WINEOLOGY Shanyn Ward Training to become a wine professional, such as a sommelier, takes years to accomplish. Just when you think you have mastered one piece, another component, which you had not yet considered, becomes evident. The quest for wine knowledge is a never ending journey. It is as much reading and memorizing as it

is sensory. It’s training your nose and palate to pick up aromas and flavors, understanding textures and how different adaptations affect them. It’s how a wine looks; how brightly coloured it is, how those colours change with age, how the wine swirls and the velocity in which its slides down the side of your glass. Having an in depth

knowledge of wine means you love geography, you draw maps to understand where vines grow; how the mountains, hills, rivers, lakes and valleys affect how the wind blows, how strongly the sun shines, how sheltered or exposed regions are from rain and snow. It is a lesson in history, as well as a prediction for the future. It is understanding a global market and how consumers shop. And then there is the food component! Because who doesn’t

love perfectly prepared food paired with your favourite wine? The role of a successful sommelier or wine professional is to gain as much knowledge possible, to understand influences, follow trends as well as remembering and appreciating classics, in order to share and educate consumers. We are here to guide you, answer questions and get you excited about trying something new. Whether you are looking to expand your cellar or you

grape varieties. It’s a grape with high, fresh acidity, it can smell and taste quite neutral in its youth. Given a few years to develop, this wine takes on aromas similar to Riesling – cooked citrus, herbaceous and wonderful minerality contribute to the refreshing complexity of this wine. This variety is generally unoaked, however Bordeaux Semillon can be found with some. It is a grape responsible for some of the world’s greatest sweet

What I am loving this week: A 2011 Peter Lehman Semillon from the Barossa Valley in Australia. I have an (unapologetic) obsession with Australian wine. Semillon is a grape that is often over looked or not properly understood by most consumers, but ask a wine maker and they may just tell you it is one of their favorite

wines, such as Chateau d’Yquem. This is a perfect gift for a wine collector. For food – I would pair this with a fresh white-fish dish and roasted asparagus. Until next time, be adventurous, trust your sommelier and write me if you have any burning questions or just need a recommendation. Cheers! -Shanyn Ward is a WSET (Wine and Spirit Education Trust) Diploma graduate and Okanagan sommelier.

Brain Trauma and Sports FAMILY CHIROPRACTIC Dr. Warren Gage I recently read a very interesting interview of a now-famous pathologist named Dr. Bennet Omalu and I thought I would pass on the highlights of this discussion. Dr. Omalu’s name may be familiar because the famous actor Will Smith played the role of this doctor in the 2015 movie Concussion - which highlights the fight Dr. Omalu faced when he was confronted by the National Football League (NFL) regarding his published research on Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE). CTE is the medical name for the brain degeneration seen in professional football players and other concussion

sufferers. Dr. Omalu’s conflict with the NFL began after he completed brain autopsies of a number of retired NFL players who had committed suicide. As a result of these autopsies, he was one of the first to publish the connection between repetitive head traumas/concussions with CTE and the long term negative effects on brain function. Following his work, other researchers have looked at autopsies of deceased American Football League players and they found 87% of the former players had CTE in the brain. Resulting from his research into CTE, Dr. Omalu has become a spokesperson against

high-impact sports and the permanent effects this has on the brain. However, his story is also an interesting one because of the intense backlash he has received from the NFL and sports lovers in America and beyond. He never intended on taking on such a huge corporate giant as the NFL, or going against “America’s game”, but once he had discovered the truth about head trauma and CTE, he could not be silent. Dr. Omalu has recently released a book about these issues called Truth Doesn’t Have a Side where he is advocating prevention of brain injuries especially in children due to the life-long negative effects it has on the individual’s health. His intention never was to take on multi-billion dollar corporations like the NFL, but he is extremely passionate

about protecting children from the devastating effects of multiple brain traumas that are commonly experienced in sports such as football, hockey and rodeo (PBR-Professional Bull Riding). As more and more research is emerging on the sensitivity of brain tissues to impacts and trauma, the choice of sports we offer our children must be considered. As a life-long ice hockey player I can say I truly loved playing the sport, but as a health care practitioner I also now realize this is a very tough, and multi-faceted issue to address.

(NC) Many people know about the risk of illness when consuming raw dough or batter that uses raw eggs. Did you know that consuming raw flour can also be risky? Flour can be contaminated with harmful bacteria such as E. coli and should only be consumed once cooked. Although licking the cookie dough or the chocolate cake

mix can be tasty, it’s really not worth the risk because eating even a small amount of contaminated flour can make you sick. Flour is a raw ingredient that should be consumed only after being cooked. Eating uncooked flour contaminated with E. coli can cause an infection. Symptoms can include stomach cramps, diarrhea and vomiting. E. coli infections can be

serious enough to require hospitalization. Most at-home chefs know that flour gets almost everywhere in the kitchen. But if that flour is contaminated with E. coli, your hands and other surfaces that come into contact with it can be contaminated too. You should handle raw flour no differently than you would handle raw meat. While anyone can get an E. coli infection, pregnant women and young children ages five and under are among those most at risk to develop more severe health problems, including kidney failure, seizures and stroke. Although rare, death can also result from an infection. Here are some tips for cooking with flour:

In order to prevent cross-contamination, keep raw foods, including flour products, separate from other foods when you cook. • Use separate bowls, measuring cups and utensils to keep flour, raw dough and raw batter separate from ready-to-eat food. • Do not add flour to foods that will not be cooked, such as milkshakes and ice cream mixes. • Bake or cook items containing flour, including flour used for thickening. • For products such as cake mixes, follow package directions for proper cooking temperatures and specified times, as these may contain raw flour.

Nancy Cooper It’s been a long winter and a slow cool start to spring. Now that seasonal spring weather appears to be upon us it time for yard work and garden cleanup. This year there is no reason to wait for “free dump days” all CSRD landfill sites accept yard and the garden waste, free of charge, everyday they are open. Removing yard and garden waste from your yard is a way to protect your home in case of a wildfire. While it appears spring has just begun if this year is similar to 2017 then we move fairly from spring runoff and high water to dry weather to the possibility of wildfires quickly. So becoming

Fire Smart is important. The City of Salmon Arm with the Columbia Shuswap Regional District (CSRD) have comprehensive emergency plans with well trained staff and volunteers ready to move into action quickly if needed. The reality is we live a beautiful natural region of forests lakes and watercourses. So we should all be prepared for an emergency and there is much you can do to be “Fire Smart.” The Home Owners FireSmart Manual is available at City Hall and at the CSRD office. This manual states the best protection against loss, damage, or injury due to wild-

fire is prevention. The following suggestions are from the FireSmart Manual. All kinds of vegetation is combustible. Mature trees, shrubs, grass and your woodpile are potential fuels that can ignite easily. This manual suggests

Your first priority is your home so start by clearing a 10 metre area around your home and buildings.

you manage the space around your home. Your first priority is your home so start by clearing a 10 metre area around your home and buildings. Remove shrubs, trees, deadfall or woodpiles and keep your grass mowed and

watered. Take any yard or garden waste to the landfill. Remember is free. Your second priority is the next 10 to 30 metres. Reduce fuels by thinning and pruning all trees and shrubs so combustion (a fire) cannot be supported. Do this by removing trees and debris that can spread a fire. Again, take all of this to the landfill. The FireSmart Manual has many more ways to protect your home from wildfires so pick one up either at City Hall or the CSRD Office, or look it up on the CSRD website type FireSmart in the search section and follow the links to download a copy of the FireSmart booklet for yourself or read it online. And while do all your spring year and garden cleanup, develop your own Fire Smart plan and put it into action.

Grade 7s move to Chase Secondary next year Martha Wickett Salmon Arm Observer

Starting in September, students entering Grade 7 in Chase will be heading to Chase Secondary School rather than Haldane Elementary. The decision to move students was finalized by trustees on Monday, April 23 at the public School District 73 board meeting in Kamloops. The board decided to proceed with the proposal in Chase and Barriere but not in Clearwater, where many people were opposed. For Clearwater, trustees voted to remain with the status quo, which means Grade 7s will stay in the elementary school. A news release from the school district states the decisions followed an extensive period of consultation with parents, staff and students in all the communities that included public meetings and presentations, as well as online, email and paper-based feedback. “This move will give many young people a unique opportunity to explore their passions and interests by giving the grade 7s access to specialized equipment and facilities and creat-

ing additional space at the elementary schools to address their needs for more flexible space,” said District Superintendent Alison Sidow. “We’re excited to see this proposal move forward in these two communities.” At Chase Secondary School, principal Dave McDonald says staff are excited. He thinks it will be a great opportunity for the Grade 7s. “We have facilities underutilized that provide specialty classes such as wood shop, metal shop and the foods room. So those kids coming over here are going to get the opportunity to take courses they wouldn’t have over at the elementary school.” The high school also offers in-house counselling, whereas the elementary school is served by the district counsellor who comes usually about once a week, he said. A less important factor is that the elementary school is “bursting at the seams,” while the secondary school has extra room, McDonald added, noting that Haldane has about 300 students and the high school 200, meaning they’ll both have about 250 come September.

Chase Secondary will become home to Grade 7 students beginning September 2018, when the grade will move from Haldane Elementary School. (School District 73 photo) One downside for the elementary school is that two teachers may no longer be employed there. Administration at Haldane could not be reached before press deadline. McDonald said two or three teachers will likely be hired at the high school, but the hiring process required means the positions would be open to anyone, not just elementary teachers who are displaced. Asked about a concern expressed regarded mixing Grade 7s with older students, he said he surveyed the Grade 8s at Chase Secondary. One question was, how much interaction is there with the older grades? “The answer was none. They said, ‘the Grade 12s don’t talk to

us’… The kids kind of scoffed at that.” He said he understands the concern of parents, but thinks there will be benefits because the older students can tutor, and other opportunities will arise for peer mentorship and leadership. “We like to look at it from the positive perspective.” McDonald mentions he was working in Logan Lake 29 years ago when Grade 7s were brought into that high school. “It was a very positive experience for them… We expect this to be a positive experience. It’s a cool school with excellent teaching staff; there will be boundless opportunities for these kids.”

Scotch Creek landmark to be restored Three couples decide to breathe new life into log building. Martha Wickett Salmon Arm Observer

What has been known as the Park Store in Scotch Creek is getting a new name and a new lease on life. Three enthusiastic North Shuswap couples have leased the facility, with plans to rejuvenate the log building. Its new name is the Hub Social House. “It’s a big building that needs to be utilized better… We’re putting in the amenities the community needs. We’re all locals, born and raised here, and young and energetic. We want to be part of turning the North Shuswap around,” says Angela Lagore, one of six people leasing the building at 4113 Squilax Anglemont Hwy. Joining Angela is her spouse Mark Lagore, her brother Carson Bischoff and his spouse Melissa Bischoff, and Sharon Toews and her spouse Mike Gregorig, better known as Chippy. Toews and Gregorig run the Beteased food truck in the North Shuswap, as well as a restaurant in Kamloops with the same name. Angela says the couples will see how business progresses, in hopes of eventually purchas-

No longer the Park Store, the landmark facility in Scotch Creek is being renamed the Hub Social House. (Facebook photo) in the North Shuswap, they know what a wonderful place it is but saw it becoming almost a ghost town. “That’s not what we want to create for our children.” Angela thinks the area is struggling because it grew too big too fast. Big buildings went up but owners would find that they weren’t viable year round. She says the log building was beautiful but is now in need of repair and TLC (tender loving care). “We want to bring back that community spirit. That’s our main goal, to pull everybody together again.” As for the time line, Angela

says the partners would like to have camping and the ice cream candy shop up and running by the May long weekend. By mid-June, they hope to have the restaurant, cafe and art studio open. Depending on paperwork, the projected opening date for the daycare would be summer. And the gym, they won’t know about until the fall. “We will slowly open different sections.” Already, she says, community members are helping to get the building cleaned up, restored “and are putting a little love into it.”

ing the building. Their plans include offering camping at the back, a games area and an ice cream candy shop. The main area will be turned into a restaurant and event area, given that the area’s pub burned down. “Maybe we’ll turn it into a pub, down the road.” The other side will include a cafe/art studio/gift shop area, with a daycare upstairs and a gym in the basement. “It’s for the community, geared towards the locals,” she says. “Tourists are going to always come, but it needs to be viable and sustainable for the tourists to come. And it provides employment.” She says the six partners taking it on all have different passions and skills sets, so some of the amenities they plan to run themselves while others will be leased out. All six sit on the board of the local chamber of commerce. The North Shuswap has been struggling for about the past five years, she says, with a declining businesses. “We saw our community falling apart and decided to band together and improve it.” Having been born and raised

A Chase man will be appearing in Kamloops Provincial Court on June 4 following a machete attack that wounded a Lee Creek man. On Tuesday, April 17, at 3:25 p.m., the Chase RCMP responded to a report of a fight at a residence in the 8500 block of Holding Road near Adams Lake.

Chase RCMP, RCMP Police Dog Services and BC Ambulance Service arrived on scene to find that the victim, a 50-year-old man from Lee Creek, had sustained a severe cut to his hand. Air ambulance was requested and transported the victim to Royal Inland Hospital in Kamloops where he would require surgery for his injuries.

The suspect had fled the scene. Investigation determined the victim was involved in an altercation with a 44-year-old man from the Chase area. During the altercation, the suspect brandished a large machete-style knife and struck the victim with it. On Wednesday, April 18, the suspect turned himself in to the Chase RCMP Detachment.

He was placed under arrest and later released to appear in Provincial Court in Kamloops on June 4. Chase RCMP are recommending charges of aggravated assault, possession of a weapon for dangerous purposes and mischief. The victim and suspect are casual acquaintances. The motive for the altercation is unknown but alcohol was a factor.

Salmon Arm Observer/Shuswap Market News


What North Korea wants GLOBAL VIEWS Gwynne Dyer What does Kim Jonun want? One thing: security. He doesn’t want to conquer the world. It’s impractical: only one out of every 300 people in the world is North Korean. He doesn’t even want to conquer South Korea. It’s twice as populous as North Korea and ten times richer: eliminate the border and Kim’s regime would crumble in months. And he certainly doesn’t want to attack the United States. King Kim III (as we would have called him a couple of centuries ago) declared last week that North Korea has now completed the task of building a nuclear deterrent to ward off a possible American attack. It will return to the task of building its economy and prosperity instead. Indeed, it will “ stop nuclear tests and launches of intercontinental ballistic missiles,” and even shut down a nuclear weapons test site. He’s obviously laying out his negotiating position for the summit meetings that are planned for this month with South Korea’s President Moon Jae-in and for next

month with US President Donald Trump. He clearly wants a deal, but he has long been afraid of an American attack. There could be a deal, but only if Washington and Seoul acknowledge that his fear is real. A little story from the Cold War. I only realised how deeply I had been affected by the propaganda I had heard all my young life when I attended my first NATO military exercise in Europe as a journalist. It was the same exercise scenario as always, with Russian tanks surging forward to overrun Western Europe and outnumbered NATO troops struggling to halt the attack. Then one day, I was interviewing a senior British army officer and for some reason I asked the obvious question I had never bothered to ask before. What scenario did the Russians use when they ran their military exercises? Oh, he said airily, their scenarios imagine that we have invaded East Germany, but after a few days they manage to turn it around and start push-

ing us back west. When their tanks are breaking through the Fulda Gap we use nukes to stop them, and the whole thing rapidly escalates into a general nuclear exchange. Well, of course. Would the Russians tell their troops that they were launching a deliberate attack on the West that would end in a full-scale nuclear war? No. As the weaker side in the long confrontation, would they ever even consider doing that? Probably not. But I had never considered the fact that the Russians were afraid of us. Maybe we were ‘the good guys’ in that confrontation, in the sense that our countries were democracies and their countries were dictatorships, but in terms of threat perception and over-reaction the two sides were identical. The situation in the Korean peninsula is the same story in microcosm. The Kim dynasty inherited a devastated country at the end of the Korean War in 1953. Its cities were levelled and at least a million people had been killed. The Chinese troops who had helped North Korea went home after the war, but the American troops stayed in South Korea. Moreover, the Americans had nucle-

ar weapons and would not promise not to use them – and there was no peace treaty, just an armistice. The Kims built a very big army as a partial and unsatisfactory counter-threat to US nuclear weapons, and started working on their own nukes as soon as the economy had been rebuilt to the required level. However, that big army created a threat perception in the US and South Korea as real and acute as North Korea’s own fears. So how might you negotiate your way out of this futile and dangerous confrontation? Pyongyang won’t give up the nuclear deterrent it has worked so long and hard to build: there’s not enough trust for that. But Kim is saying that he is willing to leave it at its current small and technologically primitive level. It’s no real threat to the US in its present form. Concentrate instead on a peace treaty that gives North Korea a sense of security at last. Demand as a quid pro quo that Pyongyang reduces its ridiculously large army to the same size as South Korea’s. And promise that once those cuts have been made, the US troops in South Korea will go home. It might work. It’s certainly worth a try.

New acts join festival lineup An eclectic mix of musicians added to Roots & Blues slate. The acts just keep coming for the 26th annual Salmon Arm Roots & Blues festival. Four acts with a decided world-music thrust are the most recent additions to what promises to be a weekend of inspired stand-alone shows on main stage coupled with the explosive musical chemistry found on side stages on the festival site. From Quebec comes the spectacular octet, Oktopus, which will be making its Western Canadian debut on the Roots & Blues weekend. The band’s exuberant harmony of bows, keys, valves and mouths strikes a chord in music lovers’ hearts, bringing pure joy to audiences in quest of memorable evenings and festive occasions. The music of Oktopus is a fabulous witch’s brew of traditional eastern-European melodies, blended in with classical masterpieces and a sprinkling of Quebec song for good measure – a Quebecois take on a sort of classical-balkanized klezmer.

The 2018 Juno-nominated Quebec band Oktopus joins this year’s Roots & Blues Festival lineup. (Oktopus/Facebook) to Roots & Blues with a reputation for keeping an audience on its collective toes, as he combines a feisty, pointed performance stance with engaging songs built around characters who have been compared to those found in the works of Kerouac and Ginsberg. Armed with his accordion, Berner has played all over the world to rave reviews. It’s rare for a musician to be as good at writing prose as making music, and Berner can credibly make that claim. Maclean’s praised his novel, Festival Man, for its “hilarity and razor-sharp satire.” If that testimony doesn’t make the uninitiated turn their attention to Berner’s talents, Billy Bragg’s assessment of Berner can’t be ignored. “Cherish him, cherish him, for there really is no one like him,” says the iconic British artist of Berner, who will be rolling everything from Americana to Klezmer, rock and European folk into his Roots & Blues performances. The open-door immigration policies of our country continue

Alberta’s Mbira Renaissance Band is one of the latest acts confirmed for the 2018 Roots & Blues Festival. (Mbira Renaissance/Facebook) to reap so many artistic rewards it’s impossible to keep up with the gifts that come our way. Mbira Renaissance Band is an example of new Canadians who come straight from a musical source and are now working with young Canadian-born musicians who love African music. Based in Alberta, this septet will have the Roots & Blues audiences on its feet and dancing. Mbira Renaissance Band delivers an afro-fusion, Thomas Mapfumo and Bhundu Boy-inspired sound that pays homage to the rich, ancient genre of mbira music. The members draw on their back-

grounds in jazz, rock, traditional Zimbabwean music and reggae. Mbira Renaissance can feature up to eight players, with Zinyemba and Ronald Nyandoro on mbira and vocals, James Stuart on bass, Sandy Ockenden on hosho (shakers), Chaka’s sister Rumbi Zinyemba and his wife Chiedza Nezungai on vocals and conga, kit drummer Vinay Jhass and guitarist Mike Campbell. Rounding out this release of four acts for Roots & Blues 2018 is David Thiaw – educator, master drummer, artist, composer, craftsman and storyteller. Thiaw’s first home was in Senegal. He has memories of

growing up in Dakar, with the scent of the Atlantic, the sand of the beaches and the music of the people inspiring him. African and World music have been David’s lifelong passion. He formed his first band when he was 14 years old, and began a lifetime of world travel, learning about musical genres and their relation to – if not their debt to – West African rhythms. For a number of years, Thiaw has called the Interior of B.C. home. Tickets for the festival are available online at rootsandblues. ca or at the Roots & Blues office at 541 - 3rd street.

Lily Dubitz Aulin

April 12, 1930 – April 22, 2018 Lily Dubitz Aulin was born at home in Shalka, Alberta, and was the beloved “Easter Lilyâ€? to her parents and nine siblings. Life on the farm was challenging, but Lily loved berry and mushroom picking, family gatherings and picnics on the lake. She especially loved school and excelled through grade 10, after which she moved on to secretarial college in Edmonton. She got a job with Canada Packer’s as soon as she graduated. Lily played soft ball, bowled, skated and adored going to the movies. On a trip to Chase, BC, she met Johnny Aulin and, after two years of letter writing, married him in September 1951. John and Lily had the kind of marriage that most can only wish for, built on pure love, mutual respect and compassion. Lily wanted a huge family and delighted in her six children, eight grandchildren and six great grandkids. She always attended sporting events, school award days and graduations and was proud of her family. Part of her heart always remained on the Prairies and she often visited family there. Lily was an integral part of the community, devoting countless volunteer hours to the local schools, the Chase Museum, Kamloops Home Support, Chase and District Health Society and the United Church, to name only a few. She worked as a writer for the Chase paper and as an assistant at the Chase Village OďŹƒce. She also ran for and was elected to the Kamloops School District as a Trustee. She bowled and curled and was very lucky at Bingo and the casino. Lily travelled the world: from Alaska to the Hawaiian Islands, from Las Vegas to Ontario and the Maritimes; through a dozen countries in Europe; across Romania and into the Ukraine to visit the birth places of her parents; and to Tokyo and Taipei. Lily was whip smart and witty – she loved to play April Fool’s jokes; she was generous and tender hearted, thoughtful and loyal. Most of all she was strong, and her spirit will always shine. Lily will be dearly missed and lovingly remembered by children Marlene (Jim), Gail (Steve), Holly (Jim), Greg, Virginia (Karoly) and Melanie; grandchildren Kristine, Jason, Darin, Georey, Shawn (Helen), Catherine, David (Hayley) and Michelle (Brooks) and great grandchildren Kasey, Gwen, Maya, William, Chloe and Ethan. We will celebrate her life on May 5, 2018, at 1 p.m. the Chase Village Hall. Online condolences may be sent to the family through Lily’s obituary at www.

Helen Jane Anderson 1941 - 2018 It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved mother Helen Jane Anderson on February 7, 2018, at 76 years of age. Helen was predeceased by her parents Eleanor and Gordon Rodgers and her brothers William and Philip Rodgers. She is survived by her children Debbie (Tony) Fillion, of Clive, AB, Brenda Dunlop, Peter Fillion, Lisa (Tim) Posynick and Kelly (Russell) Baird of Enderby, BC, 14 grandchildren and 3 great-grandchildren and her brother Fred Rodgers as well as many relatives and friends. Helen was born February 10, 1941 in Ingelheart, Ontario and spent her early years there until first relocating to northern Alberta and then settling down permanently in Enderby in the early 70’s, where she raised five children, whilst working as a care aid. Among her passions were her family, her roses and the legion. She was always ready with a cup of tea for any visitors who stopped by and was quick to fill you in on the latest news she had just heard on the radio. Any chance to spend time with family was important to her and she loved baking with her grandchildren. Although she was typically quiet and reserved, she had an unexpected sense of humor that would make everyone laugh as she made a hilarious comment or observation. She will be missed by all that knew and loved her. Her life was celebrated during an intimate service that was held February 15th at Fischer’s Funeral Home in Salmon Arm, BC.

Marten Bootsma

January 22, 1949 – April 20, 2018 We sadly announce the passing of Marty Bootsma after a short battle with cancer. He is survived by his loving wife Wendy and his seven siblings; Walter, Florence, Frances, Jenny, Greta, Ron, and Jan. As well as his children and stepchildren; Roger (Kim), Grace (Gord), Jon (Christine), Curtis (Michelle) and Emily (Justin) and grandchildren; Harley, Jaron, Kierra, Nikki, Josie, Riley, Rachel and Joy. He is predeceased by his first wife Margaret and his great granddaughter Hallie. Marty was born in the Netherlands and immigrated to Vancouver, Canada with his parents at a very young age. He met Margaret in Vancouver and they were married in 1971 and had their 3 children by 1973. After spending holidays in Salmon Arm the busy couple decided to make it their home in 1980. During his time in Salmon Arm Marty pursued careers as a carpenter and real estate agent and, as many may remember, owner of Bootsma’s Bakery. Most recently Marty was the owner and operator of the petro car wash with his good friend Warren. Marty lost his wife Margaret to cancer in the Spring of 1999. These were difficult years but Marty has remained an involved member of the community. He was a volunteer firefighter, Rotarian, and city council member, to name a few. However, his biggest accomplishment and contributions to Salmon Arm were during his 2 terms as Mayor. Regardless of the politics involved Marty always voted with Salmons Arm’s best interest at heart. Marty met his second wife Wendy and they continued to live in Salmon Arm with the company of friends and family. Marty loved to spend time with his children and grandchildren whether it was at home, the cabin, camping trips or holidays. He enjoyed people and was quick witted. Marty was frequently seen around town or at his early morning coffee club. He also thoroughly enjoyed singing with the Shuswap Barber Shop Project. Marty had a huge sense of adventure and quite the ability to form and articulate an opinion on almost everything. In lieu of flowers, a bursary will be set up for graduates for Salmon Arm Senior Secondary at the Salmon Arm Savings and Credit Union.  The service is to be held Sunday, April 29th, 2pm at the Gathering Place, 350 30 St NE, Salmon Arm, BC. Arrangements entrusted to Fischer’s Funeral Services & Crematorium Ltd., Salmon Arm, (250)833-1129. Share memories and condolences online through Marty’s obituary at

to call 9-1-1 right away.

Cinemaphile When producer Christine Haebler heard CBC radio host Shelagh Rogers interview author Richard Wagamese about his 2012 novel, Indian Horse, she knew she had to make it into a movie. She and her producer partner, Trish Dolman, had been looking for a story that would raise awareness of the residential school experience in Canada. They secured the movie rights, but wanted Wagamese’s involvement and input, and credit the film’s success to him. Sadly, in March 2017, before the movie premiered, Wagamese died at his home in Kamloops. His story is of Saul

Indian Horse, a northern Ojibway, who is forcibly taken from the land and his family and sent to residential school. As an escape from the rampant discrimination and outof-control abuse at the school, Saul seeks refuge in the sport of hockey. He is a natural, a truly gifted and exceptional player, and hockey becomes his ticket out. As Saul advances to the minor leagues, on a path to the NHL, he is exposed to crushing racism that undermines his love of the sport, and the violence and booze begin to corrupt his spirit. Ultimately, he ends up in an alcohol treatment program where he’s forced to deal with his

Legends return to Salmar stage Louisiana Hayride transports audiences back in time. Fans of music legends Elvis Presley, Roy Orbison and Patsy Cline will have an opportunity to experience some of their greatest hits performed live when the Louisiana Hayride Show rolls back into town. Based on the historical radio show where these artists (and many more) performed, the Louisiana Hayride is coming to the Salmar Classic on Wednesday, May 16. It’s an opportunity to see and hear Elvis sing That’s Alright Mama, the song he sang the first time he was on the Louisiana Hayride when he was 19 years old. And Elvis doesn’t stop there. He’ll be sure to sing a few other huge hits. Roy Orbison will show up with Crying and Pretty Woman and, always a favorite, Patsy Cline will be there as well singing her hits. Another audience favorite is Loretta Lynn singing her signature song, Coalminer’s Daughter. Her little sister, Crystal Gayle will also be there singing a couple of her chart toppers. Classic country doesn’t get any more pure than Lefty Frizzell and you’ll be

treated to his music as well. In addition to these incredible tributes, you’ll hear songs by Johnny Cash, Marty Robbins, Roger Miller, Tennessee Ernie Ford, Buck Owens and more! Many of these iconic artists have had a great influence on current singers and, to add even more variety to the show, the audience will be entertained by Shania Twain as she makes the connection between ‘old’ and ‘new’ country music. Enjoy an evening of stellar musicianship and extraordinary vocals presented in a completely unique and entertaining way. The Louisiana Hayride, complete with studio stage set, amazing tribute artists and live band, will bring you back in time to when songs were meaningful, the words were understood and the sound was pleasant. Show creators, Lori and Gil Risling, have been touring this successful production, now in its ninth year, across western Canada to rave reviews. Shows have been selling out and people are attending over and over again.

Gil Risling, left and Mike Melnichuk, right, accompany Patrick Riley performing as Hank Williams – a special guest at a May 16 performance of the Louisiana Hayride at the Salmar Classic. (File photo) show will bring back memories from a bygone era,” says Gil Risling. “This is music the audience remembers, either first hand or, in many cases, it’s music they remember their parents or grandparents playing. Music that’s no longer easily accessible.” Interspersed through the show will be little bits of trivia about the artists the group portrays. That, Lori says, “has long been an audience favourite. They love hearing the history. A lot of it is quite surprising to them.” The cast of multi-talented musicians in-

electric and acoustic guitar, and amazing vocals when in character as Roy Orbison. Andrea Anderson is second to none in her portrayal of Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn and Crystal Gayle. Her newest character, Shania Twain is an absolute delight. William Brookfield is amazing on double keyboard, guitar and vocals with his stellar recreation of songs by Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Tennessee Ernie Ford. Derek Pulliam adds stand-up bass, guitar and authentic vocals when he treats the audience to songs by

such as Lefty Frizzell and Bobby Bare. Elvis tribute artist Vic De Sousa adds another dimension to the Louisiana Hayride Show. You will be impressed with his portrayal of The King. Enjoy this ride down memory lane with incredible music from the era of the Louisiana Hayride. Showtime is 7:30 p.m. at the Classic.
