Salmon River upgraded to flood warning status Martha Wickett Salmon Arm Observer

Things do not look promising for people whose properties are threatened by flooding from the Salmon River. As of Wednesday afternoon, the B.C. River Forecast Centre added the Salmon River to its list of flood warnings. The Shuswap was previously listed under a wide-spread category of flood watch. “Following several days of warm weather and rapid snowmelt, Wednesday has

transitioned into rainy weather through much of the BC Interior,” states the flood warning. “As of Wednesday afternoon, the largest rainfall amounts have been through the Okanagan, Boundary and Salmon Arm regions, with rainfall amounts in the 5- to 30-millimeter range being observed.” It stated river levels began responding to the rainfall Wednesday and rapid rises in levels were expected through Wednesday and into Thursday.

The Salmon River was listed as a ‘key river,’ flowing at 60 cubic metres per second with peak flows of approximately 65 to 75 cubic metres forecast for Thursday. The Thursday flows are listed as 50-year to 100-year events. Then, while warm temperatures forecast for the weekend may be welcomed by gardeners and outdoors enthusiasts, they may also be a key ingredient in a perfect recipe for more flooding.

Weekend temperatures may melt snowpack Continued from Page A1 predicted in the mid- to high-20s for Saturday, Sunday and Monday in Salmon Arm – could add to the rapid melt of the larger than average snow pack. Earlier in the week, David Campbell with B.C.’s River Forecast Centre said the snow pack is, on average, “168 per cent of normal across the province.” Combined with mid-week rain, the predicted snow melt may add to high water levels. “So it could be another challenging week in terms of flows across the Interior,” Campbell said. Last Saturday, May 6, Silver Creek residents Kris and Laise Reeb and their three young children abandoned their home of less than a year when a creek breached the large berm around their property on Johnson Road. They are living in Kamloops until water levels recede. Farther south in the 500 block of Salmon River Road, residents like Maria Otting and Thomas Koppel have been sandbagging and pumping water for days and weeks in an effort to hold off the floods that burst into their homes last April. Still farther, in the 1600 block of Salmon River Road where residents were evacuated last year, work continues on Haines Creek. On April 22, 2017, residents of 10 properties there were under evacuation

order overnight after water began flowing over the road near the community park. Tom Hansen, emergency program coordinator for the Columbia Shuswap Regional District, said provincial crews were back working on drainage in that area. He’s requested assessment of the slopes above from the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations by a qualified professional. Closer to Falkland, the bridge on Dear Road on the way to Falkland was flooded Wednesday, so residents were being asked to avoid that. In Salmon Arm, residents have been eyeing the Salmon River Bridge near DeMille’s Farm Market all week as water licks at the underside of the bridge deck. “The river has reached this level and higher a number of times in the past,” stated an email from the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure earlier in the week. It noted that a ministry bridge manager had been on site to assess the bridge. “There is no immediate threat to the bridge and it remains open.” To the west, this year Sorrento is again seeing water damage undercutting the banks on Caen Road. Water also flowed over Dieppe Road, exposing a gas line. Hansen said officials are reviewing the Sunnybrae side of the lake where mudslides devastated an area last year, leav-

He said a community meeting was held to discuss the current situation. Out in Eagle Bay, he says the fire chief has informed the emergency program there are no problems at this time. The road next to Skimikin Lake has flooded again this year. Han-

sen says MOTI informed him that when it floods, signs are put up warning motorists and if it gets too high, it’s blocked so motorists must detour. At the Little Shuswap Lake Indian Band, a state of emergency was declared for one residence on May 8 because Chum Creek

has broken over its banks, cutting a swath through Charlotte Francois’ land, threatening to cut off her house from the roadway. Doug Brown, administrator for the band, said the plan is to haul rip rap and use an excavator to establish a new route for the creek.

Sandbags made available to Shuswap residents Jim Elliot Salmon Arm Observer

As the snow pack melts and the water in streams begins to rise, local governments are making sandbags available to help residents protect their properties. The CSRD are stockpiling sand and bags at locations throughout the Shuswap. Sor-

rento and Blind Bay residents can pick up sand and sandbags at Shuswap fire halls number one and two. The North Shuswap Community Hall in Celista, the Ross Creek Country Store in Magna Bay and the Scotch Creek/Lee Creek Fire Hall are all stocked with sand and sandbags. Spooner

Electric in Lee Creek will have a stockpile of sandbags only. Eagle Bay residents can pick up sandbags from either the Eagle Bay Fire Hall or Wild Rose Bay Community Park. The Falkland and Silver Creek Fire Halls will have sand and sandbags available. Sand and sandbags

Emergency crews respond to a collision at Highway 97B at 10th Avenue SE on Tuesday, May 8. (Jodi Brak/Salmon Arm Observer)

Dash-cam footage to aid investigation Jodi Brak Salmon Arm Observer

A three-vehicle collision sent one elderly man to hospital and snarled traffic along Highway 97B and 10th Ave. SE on Tuesday morning. On May 8, shortly after 9:25 a.m. the Salmon Arm RCMP, Salmon Arm Fire Department and provincial ambulance were called to the collision. Police report a gray SUV traveling west on 10th Ave. SE pulled out in front of a small dump truck which was traveling north on Highway 97B. The resulting broadside collision between those two vehicles then hit into a semi truck that was stopped on Highway 97B in the turn lane waiting to turn on to 10th Ave SE. The 80-year-old male driver of the SUV was transported by ambulance to be treated for what is believed to be non-life threatening injuries at this time. The driver of the dump truck suffered minor injuries and the driver of the semi truck, from the USA, was not injured. Two ambulances, multiple fire and rescue trucks, as well as RCMP were present at the crash site, as well as an air ambulance. A witness to the collision caught the events on his dash camera and police are now in possession of the recording. The Salmon Arm RCMP will be following up with appropriate charges once the investigation is complete.

School District 83 is moving ahead with plans to sell the SASCU Downtown Activity Centre property. (Martha Wickett/Salmon Arm Observer)

There’s no for sale sign up on the building, but bidding for the purchase of the Downtown Activity Centre (DAC) is now open. The North Okanagan-Shuswap School will be accepting expressions of interest for the purchase of the property until July 6. More than 60 people packed the library at the DAC last Wednesday evening to hear about the school district’s plans for the former elementary school. Official trustee Mike McKay began the meeting by saying he wanted to share facts so everyone would be working from the same base. He said Salmon Arm Elementary was constructed in 1921 as a two-storey brick building and had four additions: in 1936, 1967, 1970 and 1982. It closed in 2003 and the school district received approval from the ministry to sell the building on its 1.02-acre site in 2015. The school district has only one tenant, Salmon Arm Partners in Community Leadership Association, which sublets to a number of other organizations. Its five-year lease expires on June 30 of this year, but has been extended to Dec. 31. As part of the lease in 2013, those who sublet were informed that the lease would not be renewed. The building is five per cent owner-occupied by the district’s Storefront School. McKay said the market value the district received from an appraisal in May of 2017 is $1.5 million. He said the building is deemed below-average condition and has issues such as asbestos – which is safe for now unless disturbed – no air conditioning, no disabled access and outdated mechanical systems. He discussed three options: keep the building and continue to lease; keep the building and renovate or rebuild an elementary school; and sell the building. • To continue to lease, option 1, the district would need close to $3 million in funds in the short to mid-term for repairs such as HVAC system installation, roof repairs and

a new fire alarm system. The district makes no money from the $1/ year rent and would have to redirect funds from core educational services. • To rebuild/renovate, option 2, costs are estimated at $8 million and the work could take about two years. • To sell the building, option 3, proceeds could be used for other capital projects, particularly a new elementary school on the north end of the property which is needed to accommodate the 110 or so young children living in the downtown area. McKay says the education ministry requires that districts provide a substantial contribution to such projects. A new elementary school would likely cost between $12 and $15 million and currently the district has about $1 million in reserves for capital projects. McKay said he thinks it would be irresponsible to extend the lease, as taxpayers would be on the hook for substantial repairs so funds would be diverted from education. He also said the district is looking at moving the Storefront School to the main floor of the District Education Support Centre on Shuswap Street. Carol Rogers of Shuswap Kids Club, which uses four rooms in the DAC, spoke passionately in favour of maintaining the leases. She said she has used other buildings over the past 25 years and the DAC is, by far, the best. “Is it the prettiest? No, but you know what? It is functioning and our children, I’ve seen a massive shift in their energy, their behaviour and their happiness, and they’re thriving here.” Dorothy Rolin spoke to the importance of keeping the DAC, which is on the city’s heritage registry, as it is “the last public heritage building in Salmon Arm that we can save.” Her speech was met with applause. Kim Sinclair, head of the Aspiral Youth Partners Association, which currently rents the DAC from the school district, says their group has already been working on an offer to purchase.

Good to be prepared

It’s a phrase we’ve heard time and time again from emergency crews and officials. Be prepared in the event of a natural disaster. The Columbia Shuswap Regional District has been stockpiling sandbags throughout the Shuswap as waters in creeks and rivers rise. A Silver Creek family has already had to evacuate their home due to flooding, while neighbours are anxiously watching how far the creek will overflow its banks. The CSRD is encouraging people to be prepared, and have their properties prepared as well. One of the first steps to emergency preparedness is creating home and grab-and-go emergency kits. Kits should include a FirstAid kit, battery-powered or hand crank radio or flashlight, a whistle to signal for help, a cell phone and charger, seasonal clothing and water. Kits should also include enough non-perishable food to last for three days to one week, and a manual can opener. These items may not seem like much. You may even have many of these things tucked away in drawers in your home at this very moment. But put together, they can sometimes mean the difference between life and death. The information above and much more can be found on Emergency Management B.C.’s website. Heck – there’s even a section about what to do during a zombie apocalypse, starting from outbreak to evacuation orders. From wildfires and earthquakes to zombies – the key to survival is being prepared. -Black Press

“It’s a way for young people to have lots of fun.” Each year the Family Fishing Society of BC helps coordinate dozens of special community fishing events that attract more than 10,000 people. Locally, the Annual Salmon Arm Kids’ Fishing Derby attracts 600 to 800 people to the wharf on Father’s Day morning, and each year the derby’s organizers have worked in conjunction with the Family Fishing Society to make the event bigger and better. I know that over the years I have seen first-hand how the Salmon Arm Kids’ Fishing Derby has grown to become one of the most popular and successful events held here in the Shuswap. This is in no small part due to a lot of hard work by a small group of event organizers, including Aly Vann and Donna Flatman. Not to mention all the volunteers. Then there’s all the finical support from a number of service groups and businesses in the community, not to mention a whole lot

of support from The Family Fishing Society. The list goes on. According to Bird, back in 1999, following a significant decline in both tidal and freshwater sport fishing licence sales, the BC Family Fishing Weekend program was devised to help rebuild angler demographics. It would be an understatement to say that the program has been a success. One thing I do know for sure is that it’s pretty darned cool come derby morning when some young adult walks up to me with their children to register and I look at them and can remember back to when they were casting their lines into the lake as kids taking part in the derby. That is a special reward in itself and one of the reasons I like helping put the event on – that and the fact the derby was started all those years ago in memory of my father. I guess when all is said and done, maybe that’s why I look forward so much to “that time of the year.”

Peaceful riverside living at its best SHUSWAP PASSION Jim Cooperman Nestled adjacent to the Shuswap River approximately 10 minutes east of Enderby is the serene community of Ashton Creek, where thousands of tubers and paddlers begin their floats during the heat of the summer. Their journeys begin just downstream from the old, one lane, timber trestle Trinity Valley Bridge, which may be replaced in a few years with a modern steel and concrete structure. Next to the parking lot for the river floaters is the Riverside Community Hall, the heart of this rural community. Local residents, including those from Trinity Valley, gather here for pancake breakfasts, game nights, fitness sessions and for the annual favourite, October Fest. The hall, which includes a campground, is also rented out for wedding, reunions and other events. With changing demographics leading to an aging population as in other local communities, the Ashton Creek school closed years ago and was sold to a church.

The original elementary school, built in 1919 is now the well appreciated, dine and dance club, Lorenzo’s Cafe. Proprietor Lorne Costley renovated the school in the early 1990s and expanded later reusing hardwood flooring from a bowling alley. Over the years, weekends at the club have rocked out to many great musicians, including Jim Byrnes, Valdy, Corb Lund and Harry Manx. The concept that the level of community involvement increases the more distant a small community is from larger population centres certainly applies to Kingisher, where most of the approximately 300 yearround citizens and many of the seasonal residents are dedicated participants in their local society events. Kingfisher Hall was built in 1949 on land donated by the Simard family when the former one-room log schoolhouse became too small for the growing population. Its scenic, well cared for grounds include a playground and tennis court, which is also used for

road hockey games. Adjacent to the hall is the former, tworoom school, which was purchased by the regional district for the Kingfisher community to use as a library and gym. Local events at the hall include Robbie Burns Night, the Strawberry Tea, pancake breakfasts, the Christmas Concert and the always-popular Jumble Dance where the dancers enjoy cross-dressing. The nearby Kingfisher Interpretive Centre serves as a fish hatchery and an environmental education facility. Established nearly three decades ago in response to the near extinction of salmon in the Shuswap River, the society now welcomes thousands of visitors each year including students who come to experience hands-on ecological education that features salmon and watershed stewardship activities. Adjacent to the Interpretive Centre is the popular Cooke Creek Campground with 22 campsites that are well appreciated by fisherman, swimmers and paddlers. One of the major events at Kingfisher is the annual freestyle Shuswap Kayak Rodeo, held in early June during high water. Paddlers come

from across the Pacific Northwest to compete in a perfect whitewater playhole found in the Shuswap River lower chucks and party the night away to electronic music. Just to the east of Kingfisher is the 41-kilometre long, pristine Mabel Lake, where there are boat access only summer cabins, sandy beaches, campsites, two marinas and a Provincial Park. Close to the Shuswap River inlet is Mackenzie Camp run by the United Church since 1947, where every summer, hundreds of children enjoy hiking, canoeing, fishing, swimming and outdoor theatre events. The camp is also available for adult retreats. An expansive resort community has been established above Kingfisher that includes a nine-hole

golf course, country club restaurant, and airstrip. In addition to large vacation homes and an RV campground, four large condo buildings with a swimming pool provide luxurious accommodation for the mostly summer residents. Sadly, the resort is billed as the “North Okanagan’s Best Kept Secret.” Perhaps the promoters need to be made aware that Mabel Lake is clearly part of the Shuswap watershed. When asked what best distinguishes local residents, Kingfisher Community Society Chair Murray MacDonald explained how most have a “strong sense of identity, shaped by history and tradition.” There is no doubt that Kingfisher folks also share a deep love for their peaceful riverside lifestyle.

Lions efforts appreciated The Sorrento Lions Club received a personal thank you from James Lee, CLERC (Canadian Lions Eyeglass Recycling Centre) Chair for their dedication to the CLERC Eyeglass Program. In his letter, Lee says, “We value your contributions and are appreciative in knowing many hands prepare the glasses that are sent to Third World Countries.

“We are greatly in need of eyeglasses of all types (see the CLERC Post on the Lions of Canada Facebook page or the CLERC Facebook Page) and are hoping that you might be able to spread the word to nearby Lions Clubs. We have sent over 900,000 pairs to Third World Countries in the last two years, and currently sent out our

five-millionth pair. Of the 20 LERS (Lions Eyeglass Recycling Societies), CLERC has sent the 2nd most two years running. “Once again, thank you for your largesse. CLERC – An Out of Sight Opportunity to Aid the Vision Impaired of the World.” The Sorrento Lions want to extend their gratitiude to In View Optical, Alpine Op-

tometry and Evelyn’s Eyewear for doing their part to help in Lion’s World of Service, and to everyone who donates their old eyeglasses to this worthy cause. A special mention and thank you to past President Lion Terry Timms for collecting, packing and arranging shipping to CLERC in Calgary. Submitted by the Sorrento Lions Club.

IN PRAISE OF WOMEN May is a good time to show respect and love to the women in our families and our community. We value their thoughtfulness and care in the daily tasks and relationships. Their smiles and encouragment make a difference in the workplace, in education, in health care, or in sports. Society is stronger because of their leadership and partnership. May is a good time to show appreciation and love to mothers. Mothers are indispensable in the home and to society. Would you agree that bearing children is a great contribution a woman can make? Who would be alive if it had not been for a mother? Families and society will become a distant memory when the last person dies. The truth is: for 9 months, and only inches away, we felt our mother’s heart-beat! Miraculously we were fed through the umbilical cord. All of us entered this world through her birth canal, totally unable to start the journey called life. How great was the pain she suffered when we were born! Consider the sacrifices she made and the wisdom for life we learned by following her around the house. We were loved as we grew up and dreamed about life. Every child and adult has an amazing treasure in mother and the women around them. So, what is that worth? One buffet on Mothers’ Day? A flower? Really! Men and women, let’s set the pace in showing honor and gratitude. Simply having children does not make a woman a mother. Character and wisdom and a will to enable the child to grow up, empower any woman. Lean on God as He has a vested interest in every birth. Would our society not be better if we prepared girls and boys, while in school, to love life and give joy to a new generation of children? How else can we change the culture of death to communities where boys and girls laugh and find purpose for living? “Gracious God and Creator, we are thankful for countless blessings received from the women at home and in the community. Forgive us for our neglect and lack of support. Heal our homes and land. Help us to love You and follow Your ways. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”

New company focuses on living with dementia BUSINESS SPOTLIGHT Leah Blain Carolyn Stubbins, an LPN with an advanced degree in gerontology, has started a new business to help people with dementia, and their caregivers, to live life to the fullest at home. “As a nurse for the past 5 years in long term dementia care I have noticed a gap in the system. I would like to fill this gap by

offering the educational element that seems to be missing in transitioning from diagnosis to being placed in a ‘home’,” says Carolyn. “ I feel it is time to start helping people at home, to learn how to live and not just ‘get by’.” The business is called Dementia Matters Focus on Living. She offers guidance, as-

sistance and support in navigating life with dementia (or other conditions) including respite, education, advanced care planning and light house-hold duties in order for the ‘patient’ to be able to stay at home for as long as possible. “I will be in your homes, helping at the grass roots and ultimately allowing for the caregivers, families and the ‘patient’ to have fun and live their lives to the fullest in the transition.” Carolyn offers a free consultation in order

to devise a plan as this is not a “cookie cutter” condition and no two cases are the same. To contact Carolyn email stubbinscarolyn@gmail.com or phone 250-832-0607

Two business closing

Sapori Oils and Vinegars on Lakeshore Dr and The Tea & Spice Shoppe on Alexander St are closing their doors this month for different reasons, but customers can still get their products. Donna Harms,

owner of Sapori, says she’s shutting her doors after four years because she wants to retire. “The Armstrong store closed a few months ago and I’ll close here by the end of May (or earlier) as long as the products last. We’re having a super sale.” Donna plans to travel in her retirement. She is negotiating the sale of the business with a couple and the products will be available in various stores in the area. “Thanks for the support to date and keep looking for the products. Keep an eye on the website page and Facebook.” Diana Shaw at The Tea & Spice Shoppe is relocating to Calgary but she is still keeping a local connection. “I want people to know that business has been awesome in Salmon Arm. The reason I’m closing is that my husband is in Calgary working and I’m just tired of a long-distance relationship. We hoped he could come here and find work but he couldn’t and we’re tired of being alone and family is just too important and life is

too short.” Diana, who is working on her tea sommelier certification, already has her business online. “I’ll have free shipping to Salmon Arm customers for orders over $75 and I’m working on a flat-rate shipping fee on orders less than that. I’m very grateful and thankful to Salmon Arm and I’m going to miss my regular customers.” Diana says the top selling teas are: Cream of Earl Gray, Spicy Chai, Bahama Mama, and the custom blends she did for Gratitude Yoga and The Shack Ice Cream Shoppe.

Thai restaurant gets a facelift

The Chiang Mai Orchid Thai restaurant on Hudson got a face lift. Nipa Chaiboonya has owned the restaurant for 16 years and she thought it was about time to give it a new look. They were closed for a week to get it all done. It’s painted and has a new floor; the booths are gone and there are new tables, chairs, and decor.

Dinoflex summer sale

Dinoflex has its annual factory direct summer sale on now so customers can buy recycled rubber surfaces. The sale is on until August 31. Located in the industrial park, 5590 46th Ave S.E., they’re open from 9 am to 3:30 pm Monday to Friday.

Open for the season

The Shack Ice Cream Shoppe opened this week. For those who aren’t ready for cold, they also have espresso drinks. Craig’s Bakery is suppling their sandwiches this year, and they have brand new ice cream flavours including Honey Cashew Crunch. There are also sorbets and fruit smoothies for those who can’t have dairy. Rosa’s Taco Stand, located at Blackburn Park, is also open for the season. Rosa’s hours are 11 am - 5 pm, Tuesday through Friday, with extend hours during game days. -Send your business news tips to leahblain. shuswapmarketnews@ gmail.com

Relationships are at the forefront of your mind, Taurus. You may have specific criteria you use to assess potential friends or romantic interests, but it could pay to widen your scope.

GEMINI

Gemini, your charm might be on overdrive, but you are looking for more than just trivial companionship. Explore activities that will match you with those with the same interests.

CANCER

Coworkers are expecting much from you, Cancer. Although you want to promise them everything, you have doubts you can deliver. See what you can handle and farm out the rest.

LEO

You have plenty of options in your love life, Leo. Take a step back and carefully assess where you want existing relationships to go. Such a breather will only benefit you.

VIRGO

It takes more than just a positive attitude to be successful this week — although positivity is a good start. Set goals and aim for doing your fair share of hard work.

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. We hope that you will join us in welcoming these new members of our community. Olena Emmerzael is a lovely young woman from Ukraine who has another romantic story for us. Although it was only in December of last year she arrived in Salmon Arm, it was to join her husband of one year, Peter Emmerzael. While holidaying in the Phillipines, the couple met in a chance encounter

while walking. Peter engaged Olena in conversation, reversing his direction of travel to walk with her. He asked her out to dinner and to this day she is not sure why she accepted. Peter returned to Canada 10 days later. They corresponded via the Internet, Skype etc…and Peter proposed in September. He travelled to Ukraine in December for the wedding. Olena waited for her visa until this past December. She says she came to the coldest of countries and was enveloped in the warmest of families. Olena has a degree in economics, with accounting, financial practice, banking, human resources and legal experience as

chief accountant for a private corporation in Ukraine. She also has software and IT experience. She is currently attending English as a second language courses with Shuswap Immigrant Services and will study English at the local university campus. She began learning English through her own efforts while in Ukraine with books, classes and the Internet. She enjoys learning, but also the social aspect of meeting new people engaged in learning. The calm, respectful attitude of many of her classmates here in Salmon Arm has impressed her. She may take additional courses at OUC such as accounting to learn Canadian practices

Olena and Peter Emmerzael in traditional Ukrainian garb. (Photo contributed) and terminology. Olena is a Scuba Dive Master and Peter, who works in construction, shares her love of diving. She enjoyed the variety of people of all ages she met through diving. She enjoys hiking, cycling, swimming and other sports and is looking forward to winter sports next year. Olena’s English is already impressive.

Although she studied English in school in Ukraine, her open, friendly attitude makes it easier to put into practice in her adopted country. She also looks forward to employment in her field of expertise, which she will enjoy adapting to Canadian norms. Any prospective employer will be glad of her cheerful, outgoing enthusiasm.

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

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 to 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

Shuswap spelling stars raise funds for literacy

How many Cs are in the word desiccate? Does the I before E except after C rule apply to the word Fahrenheit? Is there an A on the start of Aesthetically?

These were just a few of the problems faced by the teams competing in the annual Literacy Alliance of the Shuswap Society (LASS) spelling bee fundraiser on May 9. When the final word was spelled-out, the

score was tied for the first-time ever between teams Bee-Witched and the Pollinators. A tie-breaking word scramble secured the Bee-Witched team their fourth spelling bee victory. Over $10,000 was

raised for LASS to support their community literacy programs which include the Unplug and Play family literacy week, One-to-One children’s reading program and computer tutoring for seniors.

The 411 on Mother’s Day flowers

Mother’s Day is an annual holiday that honors motherhood and provides an opportunity for men, women and children to show their mothers how much they appreciate them. The tradition of Mother’s Day in the United States dates back more than a century to 1908, when West Virginia native Anna Jarvis held a memorial service to honor her mother, who had passed away three years earlier, and all mothers in Grafton, West Virginia. Mother’s Day would ultimately become a national holiday in the United States in 1914, thanks in large part to Jarvis’ campaigning. As Jarvis, who never married and never had children of her own,

grew old, she criticized Mother’s Day as overly commercial, even trying to have it removed from the calendar. Those efforts failed, and Mother’s Day remains popular now, more than 100 years after the idea for it was conceived. While Mother’s Day traditions have changed since Jarvis first proposed the holiday, many people feel it’s customary to give mothers gifts on Mother’s Day, when moms take the day off from chores and relax with their families. Flowers make for popular Mother’s Day gifts, and well-wishers who want to give the special women in their lives flowers this year can consider a host of varieties. Carnations Carnations are popular Mother’s Day flowers, perhaps because they are available in a number of colors. That means it’s highly likely sons, daughters, husbands and others gifting moms this

This Mother’s Day, don’t forget Grandma. Regardless of her age and state of health, your grandmother deserves special attention too, and there are thousands of ways you can give her some. Just remember that it’s usually the simplest treats that make her happy. Whether or not you can organize a family get-together, take advantage of Mother’s Day to share quality time with your grandmother. Have a meal at your house or at a restaurant, or picnic together at a park. Take a walk or an outing in the car; visit a museum or go to a concert. These are all activities that your grandmother will remember for years to come. Is your grandmother housebound? Bring her a small cake or other dessert she really likes and take a moment to enjoy it with her. Make her laugh, and talk about things that are close to her heart. Ask for her advice, and make sure she knows

that you love and care for her. A photo can be another way to please your grandmother. Give her a recent photo of yourself or the whole family or a souvenir photo that will remind her of a wonderful time. If it’s framed, offer to help her hang it on a wall. Other great gift ideas are a soft cashmere shawl to keep her warm, a personalized mug that she can use to enjoy her favourite drink or a nice cushion to support her back. Above all, don’t miss this opportunity to visit her; on Mother’s Day, your presence will be her most beautiful gift.

While gifts and other trinkets are certainly part of the celebration, a vast majority of children opt to treat Mom to a night out on the town come Mother’s Day. Not only does this give mom a night off from cooking, but also it presents an opportunity to get dressed up and spend time together as a family. A vast number of families travel to their favorite restaurants for Mother’s Day meals. Mother’s Day is one of the busiest holidays of the year for restaurants. The National Retail Federation says 54.8 percent of Americans treat their mothers to a special meal out on Mother’s Day. Billions of dollars are generated by people eating out with their mothers. With large crowds to be expected, diners can follow a few tips when treating Mom to a meal. • Book early ... very early. To guarantee a reservation at any restaurant, namely your favorite restaurant, you

will need to make a reservation well in advance of Mother’s Day. It’s never too early to put your name on the reservation list. Don’t forget Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 13, 2018. • Expect to wait. Even with a reservation, you’re bound to spend some time waiting at the restaurant. Other families may be lingering at their tables, as no one wants to rush Mom out of the door. Plan accordingly for a potentially long wait time. This means having a snack before you leave. Don’t arrive famished, as no one wants the dining party to be hungry and cranky, which is not a good way to celebrate Mom. Have plenty of snacks and drinks on hand for young children, as well as activities to keep them entertained. • Consider dining out a day before or after. Restaurants are generally packed on Mother’s Day, and as a result kitchen and wait staffs might be overtaxed. What’s more, diners might be relegated to a special or abbre-

viated menu. If you want a more relaxed setting and the ability to order whatever you desire, it may be a better idea to celebrate Mother’s Day in advance. Then have Mom enjoy a relaxing day at home on her special day. • Take-out is an option. Families can treat Mom to a dinner out, without really having to go out. Many restaurants offer takeout service, so you will not be limited to pizza or Chinese. Even chain restaurants have curbside service, so if Mom is in the mood for a burger or something more elaborate, she’ll have that option. • Expect an included gratuity. Restaurants often include a gratuity in the bill when servicing larger parties, such as those that might be celebrating Mother’s Day. The standard gratuity rate is 18 percent, but you may

want to go above and beyond if you feel the service is exemplary. • Hire a sitter for young kids. Although Mother’s Day is a chance for the entire family to spend time together, the main goal is to ensure Mom’s comfort and happiness. If very young children are in tow, she may not be able to relax and enjoy her meal. Infants will need to be fed, and toddlers may be easily distracted. Have a sitter watch little ones when adults are dining out, and then Mom can enjoy time with the kids when she returns home for more celebrating.

OurRotary.com CAREER MEDLEY

Once again this year, Rotary in Salmon Arm has been involved with a Career Medley. This is a one-day program, organized by Rotarians, Okanagan College, and the School District, that invites high school students to come and talk about careers with mentors from various industries, professions, and trades. The organizers thank members of the community who have volunteered their time to be mentors. It’s a great program, and well-attended by student participants.

FOOD DRIVE

Rotary in Salmon Arm and the Shuswap was thrilled to see the success of the first annual food drive in Salmon Arm. Chase, who has had this program running for several years, was also pleased with the outcome. Householders were invited to fill yellow food drive bags with non-perishable groceries and leave them on their doorsteps. Then Rotarians and volunteers went around and picked up the bags for distribution to the Salvation Army Food Bank, the Second Harvest Food Bank, and the Safe Society. Thanks to all those in the community who contributed. It was a great event.

Name now Tsútswecw Park

Province drops Roderick Haig-Brown, family approves. The provincial government is renaming three parks in B.C., including Roderick Haig-Brown Park in the Shuswap. Responding to a request from the Little Shuswap Lake Indian Band, the park that is known for the annual sockeye salmon run in Adams River will now be called by the Secwepemc name, Tsútswecw Park, which translates to “many fish.” Haig-Brown’s family has expressed approval of the new name. Also being renamed are Brooks Peninsula Park on Vancouver island, which will become M q u q w i n / B ro o k s Peninsula Park, and Boya Lake Park near the northwestern B.C. border, which will now be called TaCh’ila Park. Mquqwin means “the queen” in the NuuChah-Nulth language and Ta Ch’ila means holes in blanket. The name change was requested by the Kaska Dene Fist Nation. Roderick HaigBrown was a logger, fisherman and guide to other anglers for years in B.C., drawing inspiration from those jobs and his love of the province to write several books and essays, including A River Never Sleeps. He was magistrate for Campbell River from 1941 to 1974, a trustee of the Nature Conservancy of Canada, advisor to the B.C. Wildlife Federation, Trout Unlimited and

Tourists position for the best view of the salmon run on the viewing platform in the former Roderick Haig-Brown Provincial Park, which is being re-named Tsútswecw Park. (File photo) the Federation of Flyfishers and a member of the Federal Fisheries Development Council and the International Pacific Fisheries Commission. Haig-Brown was also chancellor of the University of Victoria from 1970 to 1973 and was a member of the Federal Electoral Boundaries Commission for the province three times. In January 2017, Celia Haig-Brown, daughter of Roderick, told the Salmon Arm Observer she was delighted when she heard the North Shuswap park named after her father might be changed to a Secwepemc name.

“I have since contacted my three siblings to ask for their input and we all agree this would be an elegant move — to give the park a name based in Secwpemctsin,” she wrote. “Definitely having Secwepemc representation at the table regarding the name is essential to choosing appropriately. I know that there are existing traditional names for many spots in the area and feel it would be great if the name chosen reflected this long-standing relationship of people, salmon, land and rivers. I feel strongly that my father, who had deep respect for Indigenous

Sockeye Salmon swim in the Adams River towards their spawning grounds in the park. (File photo) peoples, would also be delighted to hear about this change.” The province is also adding more than 1,600 hectares of land to 10 provincial parks, including Cowichan River, Juan de Fuca,

Monkman, Cape Scott, the Duu Guusd Conservancy, Otter Lake, Syringa, Monashee, E.C. Manning and Kleanza Creek. -Contributed by Kamloops This Week

Motorcycle crash causes serious injuries Tracy Hughes Salmon Arm Observer

A motorcyclist sustained serious injuries in a Sunday night crash on the Trans-Canada Highway near Lee Creek. On May 6 at approximately 9:10

p.m., Chase RCMP responded to a report of a motor vehicle collision. Police investigation determined a motorcycle was travelling eastbound on the Trans-Canada Highway when it struck a concrete median at

Squilax Anglemont Road. A 38-year-old man who was driving the motorcycle sustained serious injuries and was transported to hospital by ambulance. Traffic was reduced to single-lane alternating traffic for several

hours while an RCMP Collision Analyst examined the scene. “Chase RCMP would like to commend the bystanders and first responders who tended to the driver, providing first aid, until ambulance arrived,” says Cpl.

Scott Linklater of the Chase RCMP. The cause of the collision is under investigation. Chase RCMP is requesting anyone who may have witnessed the collision to contact the Chase RCMP Detachment at 250-679-3221.

Cairn formally dedicated at Chase museum Representatives of all levels of government attend Canada 150 ceremony on May 5. The new Canada 150 Cairn at the Chase Museum was formally dedicated on Saturday morning, May 5. The dedication was attended by North Okanagan-Shuswap MP Mel Arnold, MLA Todd Stone, Village of Chase Mayor Rick Berrigan, Neskonlith Chief Judy Wilson and other representatives of the indigenous communities, the Chase Museum and Archives Society, and members of the general public.

The dedication ceremony was opened by the president of the Chase Museum Board, Anne Lamoureux, and continued with comments from government representatives, and comments, prayers, and blessings from indigenous representatives. Major funding for the cairn was provided by a grant from the BC Museums Association as part of the Canada 150 Lasting Legacies Program. Support was also provided by

the Village of Chase, the Little Shuswap Lake (Skw’lax) Indian Band, the Neskonlith (Sk’atsin te Secwepémc) Indian Band, and the Adams Lake (Cstélec te Secwepémc) Indian Band. The support of all parties is recognized by individual plaques mounted on the cairn. The brass bell mounted on the top of the cairn was originally donated by the CPR, to the church that was the original occupant

of the building that now houses the Chase Museum. The cairn contains a time capsule, to be opened at a distant future date. The cairn commemorates the history of the development of the area, and will stand through the future as a reminder to all of the importance of contributions made by many individuals.

Foxtrot explores themes of loss and fate JOANNE SARGENT Cinemaphile An unforgettable day in the life of Lebanese writer/director Samuel Maoz was the inspiration for his movie Foxtrot. Maoz had refused to give his daughter, who was running late for school, the money to take a cab, telling her to take the bus. Twenty minutes later, he learned the bus she would be on was hit by a terrorist attack. Fortuitously, she had missed the bus, but for a terrifying window of time, he thought his daughter had died. It was the concept of fate and loss that he took out of the incident and brought to this film.

The movie is told in three connected stories. In Israel, it is mandatory at the age of 18 for adult men and women to serve in the military. The dread of any parent with a child in the service is to open the door to two soldiers standing there. Nothing is said, but Dafna knows immediately the worst has happened, her son Jonathan has been killed. As she screams and falls to her knees in despair, the soldiers, way too familiar with this routine, sedate her. In the next room, in their upper middle-class apartment in Tel Aviv, Michael, the boy’s fa-

ther, sits stunned, staring into space. Their perfectly ordered world is upended in grief. Michael falls apart, spiralling into a whirlwind of anger and anguish, but then, a piece of unexpected news. The second act jumps to a remote desert, checkpoint Foxtrot, where their son Jonathan serves side by side with three other soldiers who fight the monotony of a gate that’s raised more often for wandering camels than anything else. It is an unpopulated area bisected by a single, lonely road that stretches on forever, seems to go nowhere, and is little travelled. When the very occasional Palestinian carload does come to the checkpoint, the guards subject them to preju-

dice and humiliation and abuse their authority. But mostly, the soldiers, who are really still boys, combat the overwhelming boredom by entertaining themselves in cute and amusing ways, providing us some relief from the grief. Then, out of nowhere, violence erupts. The final act takes us back to Tel Aviv and Dafna and Michael, months later, as Maoz digs deeper into the themes of loss and fate, how one’s whole life can be so altered by a random unintentional mistake. Foxtrot won the Grand Jury Prize at the Venice Film Festival and was Israel’s submission to the Academy Awards, despite condemnation by the Israeli government.

Lebanese writer/director Samuel Maoz’s movie Foxtrot plays Saturday, May 12, at the Salmar Classic. (File photo) It’s a powerful statement about the unintended side effects and futility of living in a constant state of war. Designed to move you with its depiction of senseless tragedy, the

Actors bring charm to difficult drama Shuswap Theatre’s latest mainstage offering, Perfect Pie, runs until May 12. Lachlan Labere Salmon Arm Observer

Shuswap Theatre’s latest offering, Perfect Pie, is a bittersweet slice of rural Canadiana that will both charm and challenge audiences. Set in the rural community of Marmora, Ont., this local production of the Judith Thompson play centres around a reunion of former childhood friends, Patsy and Marie, whose lives diverge following a night of traumatic events. After this, Patsy chooses to stay on the family farm to have a family of her own, while Marie opts to flee, burying her past to pursue a life of celebrity. The play begins with Patsy, played by Mary Masson, at the kitchen table in her family’s farmhouse, rolling dough for a pie, recording a message for Marie. Some 30 years have

passed since Patsy has seen her childhood friend, who fled Marmora in her midteens, and Patsy yearns to see her again. Marie, now Francesca, played by Tammi Pretty receives Patsy’s message, as well a pie she sent, and chooses to return home for a visit. There is a familiar awkwardness as the two old friends stand in Patsy’s kitchen, attempting to reconnect – a process that’s made easier with Patsy’s home baking and a bit of ice wine. While the two catch up, a parallel story begins in a schoolyard where young Patsy (Ali Foster-Balloun) gets to know her oft-bullied schoolmate Marie (Meaghan Delaney). The two become close friends and develop a bond that may be the closest thing to perfect the two have ever experienced.

Masson is convincing as Patsy – the mother of two who is not as content with her life as she wants to believe. Pretty also hits the mark as the seemingly self-destructive Francesca. Foster-Balloun and Delaney do more than their share of heavy lifting as young Patsy and Marie. The two had the audience buzzing with admiration during the break, and in wide-eyed silence during the late rising action of the second half. Directed by Elizabeth Ann Skelhorne, Shuswap Theatre’s production of Perfect Pie is faithful to the source material and delivered the way it was meant to be seen: live on stage. (Don’t waste your time with the 2002 movie of the same name.) The stage settings are detailed and believable, while the lighting and sound were

Directed by Elizabeth Ann Skelhorne, the play runs until May 12. (Joy Florell/Captures Photography) impressive in how they complemented individual scenes while enhancing their mood and intensity. Perfect Pie is Shuswap Theatre’s entry for the 2018

DeMille’s to launch hot air balloon festival

The DeMille’s Farm Market inaugural hot air balloon festival may be start off small, but Brad DeMille has high hopes for the event. “It’s a festival of one balloon. Does that make it a festival? I guess it might,” laughs DeMille, whose inspiration to host the May 27 event comes from

the annual balloon festival in his former hometown of Snowmass, Colorado. “I thought of it a number of years ago and I finally was able to put it together with a guy out of Kelowna, Okanagan Ballooning, and he had some time open on that 27th weekend, on the Sunday morning. It will

be fun…,” said DeMille. “I just thought it would be a fun idea because nobody has done it before.” Limited rides of 15 minutes each are available between 9 a.m. and noon on the tethered balloon, and include photos and video taken by a professional drone operator. DeMille

said remaining spots are selling quickly. But people don’t have to ride in the balloon to appreciate it. “It’s pretty cool, and the noise, that propane blowing up that massive 10-storey tall balloon, I mean, you’re going to see this from the road and you’re going to go, holy…, I’ve got to go in there

Taking a look at the Similkameen wine region WINEOLOGY Shanyn Ward For many visitors to the Okanagan, and even for residents, when we think of heading out to tour wineries we often over look the Similkameen Valley. Approximately 80 kilometres or 60 minutes away from Kelowna, Highway 3A veers off and takes you to the heart of a very relaxed and picturesque wine region. I would like to call it a new and emerging wine region, but feel that would be unfair, as vines have been planted here as long

as they have been in other areas of the Okanagan. Instead maybe I will just say that the quiet and reserved nature of the winemaking community here is more like a long established wine region such as Burgundy or The Rhone. Once you get a chance to experience it, they will always be in your mind and you will make the choice to visit as often as you can because you know the wines are just that good. It’s the simplicity of the Similkameen that

makes them unique. You will not find any flashy restaurants here, just casual patios offering charcuterie and cheese. You can stop by a fruit stand and pick up some local produce or pack yourself a picnic.

One of the things I find so great about the Similkameen is their ability to produce wine as naturally and organically as possible.

One of the things I find so great about the Similkameen is their ability to produce wine as naturally and organically as possible. This is due to the climate and valley it is located in.

Days are long and hot – often reaching over 40 C, but evenings are generally quite cool, sometimes below 10 C. The soils of sand and loam give an equal balance of drainage and water holding capacity, allowing for less irrigation. And the steady breeze that blows through the valley ensures dry conditions for the vineyards, which means lower incidence of pests and disease with little or no pesticides or herbicides needed. The list of wineries is a short one, and with a palate cleansing stop at Twisted Hill Cidery to finish, this is an area you can see in a day. I assure you that you will back though; the laid back nature is contagious! What I am loving this week: Two Similkameen wines, as there were too many to only pick one, but arguably

I could have picked 10!Corcelette Pinot This very light and juicy style Pinot Noir is achieved by less skin contact and just a touch of sweetness. It has ripe strawberries and cream on the nose and fresh rhubarb minerality on the palate. This is seriously a great summer Pinot. Clos du Soleil Fume Blanc This is a Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon blend that is boldly refreshing. It has yellow grapefruit, lemon and fresh green apple flavors. It would pair perfectly with summer cuisine with fresh Okanagan produce.

INFORMATION DESIGNED TO PROMOTE AND ENHANCE YOUR WELLBEING

Chiropractic vs Treatment FAMILY CHIROPRACTIC Dr. Warren Gage I had a great discussion the other day with a patient who was asking why their back pain hadn’t gone away after her third visit. After clicking on her spinal x-rays and showing her the degeneration and nerve irritation in her spine that has been present for decades, she began

to understand there was no quick-fix to her problems, but we definitely would be able to help improve function in her body. I then realized I hadn’t adequately explained to her the true goals of Chiropractic because she was viewing my care as a treatment for her back pain.

(NC) For allergy sufferers everywhere, the first sign of ragweed is a terrifying one. It

signals a long season of coughing, itchy eyes and sore throat — basically a constant state

I proceeded to explain to her that Chiropractic is a distinct and unique profession that strives to improve nervous system function, rather than a treatment for specific spinal symptoms. Patients are used to receiving treatment for specific ailments from their healthcare provider; however, it is important to understand the unique role Chiropractic plays in one’s health and wellness. While we commonly address the

spine, hence the “back doctor” title, we do so in order to assess the function of the nervous system. Regardless of the symptom or health condition of an individual, the Philosophy of Chiropractic is based upon the fact that the nervous system is the master controller of the body. When there is interference in the nervous system, the body’s ability to express it’s innate health potential is compromised.

Chiropractors look to the spine to detect and correct subluxations (misalignments/stuck patterns) with an intention of removing interference to the full expression of the body’s innate intelligence. In contrast to the treatment of symptoms, Chiropractors understand the body operates as a single entity thus it is impossible to change function in one system of the body without having an unwanted impact

on another part. The innate wisdom of the body is far superior to any individual or profession, so in order to maintain health and wellness, the body simply requires a clear functioning nervous system combined with as close to ideal environment as possible. In other words, to achieve 100% health every person must ensure their spine and nervous system are free from interference and stress. This then must be combined with

constantly striving to live in an environment that contains the least amount of physical, chemical and emotional stress as possible. When you give the body all of these essentials, a symptom such as back pain will not only resolve, but all aspects of health and wellness improve. Dr. Warren Gage is a family wellness Chiropractor who can be reached at Harbourfront Family Chiropractic at (250) 803-0224.

of misery. This weed is more than just an eyesore for Canadians; it’s a major health concern. Up to 10 per cent of the population suffers from allergies and, according to a study published in the Pro-

ceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the ragweed pollen season has grown by almost a month over the last decade, causing dismay for helpless allergy sufferers everywhere. And there are costs

to this. Estimates are that the financial costs of hay fever — both medications and lost productivity — were $1.8 billion in the United States back in 1990. But allergy-causing weeds don’t have to go

untamed. According to a study published by Pest Management Science, herbicides are key to controlling allergenic plants. These are the same tools farmers have been relying on for decades to control pests in their

fields and produce a safe and abundant food supply. In Canada, these tools are thoroughly regulated by Health Canada to ensure they are safe for people and the environment. www.newscanada.com

Meet and eat local products from local farmers HEALTHY BITES Serena Caner One of my favourite places to visit in a new town is the farmer’s market. I remember the sticky-bun lady in Prince George, my $4 jar of thimbleberry jam, my loaf of bread made from wheat grown and processed from the baker’s farm. Eating their food creations, I momentarily connected with these strangers, knowing that if we lived in the same place, we would be friends. Now that spring has arrived, there is ample opportunity to eat fresh, local food and support our local food producers. Some

opportunities include: Community Supported Agriculture (C.S.A.): C.S.A. is about forming a relationship between a farm and a community of supporters. It connects people directly with their food source. For farmers, it provides a source of income at their time of highest expense (early spring). Consumers purchase a share in the season’s harvest and receive a weekly box of fresh, delicious, sustainably-produced food all summer long. Some C.S.A.’s in the Salmon Arm area include:

Highcroft Farm: www.highcroft-farm. com Enderberry Farm: www.enderberryfarm. ca The Radical Bloom: theradicalbloom.ca Farmers Markets: are a community gathering of local artisans, farmers and foodies. There are often pets on leashes, children roaming and music and entertainment. Meet the people who grow your food and taste what they have to offer. Many Farmer’s Markets are opening this week: Salmon Arm Community Market: Every Friday from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at 5th Ave. and 5th St. SW (behind Centanoka Mall) All Organic Farm Market: Wednesdays at Uptown Askews 2:30 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Sorrento Village Farmer’s Market: Saturdays 8 to noon at 1240 TransCanada Highway (Sorrento Shoppers Plaza) Enderby Open Air Market: Fridays 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at City Hall Parking Lot. There are also farms that can be visited and bought from directly. Good websites to find out about the farms near you: http://shuswaptourism.ca/do/food-winefarms/local-food-listings http://www.buylocalbc.org/buy-localbuy-fresh-thompsonshuswap So come out and celebrate delicious foods grown in the Shuswap! -Serena Caner is a registered dietitian who works at Shuswap Lake General Hospital.

Viewpoint

www.saobserver.net

Karl Marx and socialism 200 years later GLOBAL VIEWS Gwynne Dyer “Karl Marx was right: socialism works. It is just that he had the wrong species,” wrote sociobiologist E.O. Wilson, the world’s leading authority on ants. But it’s really a little more complicated than that, and now is a good time to discuss it, because last weekend was the 200th anniversary of Marx’s birth. Marx died in London in exile in 1883, so he cannot be blamed for the tens of millions who were killed in his name in the Soviet Union, China and elsewhere in the 20th century. But he did want to

change the world, and his goal was equality: the ‘classless society’. At its peak, in the mid-1980s, ‘Marxism’ ruled the lives of onethird of the world’s people. Now it is the official ideology in only five countries, and even there it is mainly an excuse for authoritarian rule, not a real belief system. But the principle of equality remains a central value in human politics, and now we sort of know why. Egalitarianism among human beings poses a problem that cultural anthropologist

Bruce Knauft dubbed the ‘U-shaped curve’. He observed that all non-human primate species – chimpanzees, gorillas, etc. — are intensely hierarchical (a vertical line), whereas for up to 100,000 years before the rise of civilization our hunter-gatherer ancestors were extremely egalitarian (a horizontal line). But as soon as mass civilizations arise five thousand years ago, it’s back to chimpanzee values. Until quite recently, all civilised societies were steep hierarchies of privilege and power. So draw another vertical line, and you have the U-shaped curve. This raises two questions: how did human beings break away from

the primate norm, and why did they succumb to it again as soon as they became ‘civilized’? The best answer to the first question came from another anthropologist, Christopher Boehm, who pointed out that humans were intelligent enough to realize that the usual primate dominance struggle among all the adult males could only have one winner. Everybody else was bound to lose, and to be bullied and dominated by the dominant male. Since each individual was far more likely to lose than to win, it was in their collective interest to shut the whole dominance game down – and unlike other primates, humans had language,

which enabled them to conspire in mini-revolutions that achieved exactly that goal. All of those little hunter-gatherer societies were egalitarian because they were, in Boehm’s phrase, ‘reverse dominance hierarchies’: the rank and file got together and overawed the wouldbe alphas. Even today the customs of aboriginal societies reflect this old revolution: they are fiercely egalitarian, and have strong social mechanisms for taking down those who are getting too big for their boots. Human beings lived in tiny bands with no hierarchies, not even any formal leaders, for long enough to entrench those egal-

itarian values in our cultures and maybe in our genes. But even the earliest civilizations had many thousands of people, which disabled all the social control mechanisms that relied on spotting and discouraging the would-be alphas. Moreover, mass societies had complicated economies that needed centralized decision-making. So the alphas took charge, and the millennia of tyranny began. They only ended in the past couple of centuries, when democratic revolutions started to overthrow the kings, emperors and dictators. Why now? Probably because the rise of mass media (just printing plus mass literacy, in the early phase)

gave the millions back their ability to organize, and to challenge those who ruled over them. They were still egalitarians at heart, so they seized the opportunity; and by now more than half the world’s people live in countries that are more or less democratic. But it’s only political equality; we never got the material equality of the hunter-gatherers back, and the social hierarchies persist. Marx’s goal was to reconquer the remaining lost ground (though he would never have put it like that), and create a classless society that lived in absolute equality. It was such an attractive goal that millions sacrificed their lives for it, but it was a pipe-dream. The only way to achieve that kind of equality again in a modern mass society was by strict social controls – and the only people who could enforce those controls were ruthless dictators. So we learned something from the collapse of Communism. Absolute equality comes at too high a price. But too much inequality also exacts a price. People living in modern democratic societies will accept quite a lot of inequality, especially if there is a well-developed welfare state to protect the poor. But if the income differences get too great, the politics gets ugly. Why did Canadians elect Justin Trudeau as prime minister, while Americans chose Donald Trump as president? The two countries have similar cultures and almost identical per capita incomes, but the richest 20 percent of Canadians earn 5.5 times as much as the poorest 20 percent – whereas the richest fifth of Americans earn 8 times as much as the poorest fifth. Inequality is inevitable, but you have to manage it.
