Salmon Arm police officers will not be charged in the shooting of a suspect in a 2015 armed robbery and subsequent police chase. The BC Prosecution Service announced Wednesday, May 16 that no charges will be laid against members of the Salmon Arm RCMP who were involved in the non-fatal shooting in Canoe, near Salmon Arm, on July 3, 2015. The officers were responding to a complaint of an armed robbery at a gas station in Sicamous involving an adult male suspect. The suspect reportedly fled the scene in a vehicle. The BC Prosecution Service states that during their efforts to apprehend him, two officers discharged their firearms in separate encounters with the suspect. In the second encounter, he sustained serious gunshot injuries. The suspect was transported to hospital for medical treatment and subsequently recovered. In reports at the time, police told the media that the suspect fled the scene in a blue SUV bearing Nova Scotia plates, which had been reported stolen in Saskatchewan. RCMP, with the help of a 911 call from a Canoe resident, later found the vehicle in Canoe, where the suspect had abandoned it in a residential driveway. A perimeter was established and a police dog and handler were used to establish a track. During the search, the dog handler was allegedly confronted by the suspect and Continued on Page A4

Flooding 2018 Salmon Arm Observer/Shuswap Market News

Peak levels for Salmon River downgraded River flows remain at 100-year flood level, flooding to depend on weather. Martha Wickett Salmon Arm Observer

As the old song goes, what a difference a day makes… While properties in the Salmon Valley remain in the path of potential flooding, the focus is beginning to shift elsewhere. The peak stream flow levels of the Salmon River are changing rapidly, just as quickly as the surge that flooded residents overnight on May 9 and10. That surge reached 77.7 cubic metres per second. As of Tuesday, May 15, a peak level of 80 cubic metres per second was being forecast for Wednesday or Thursday of next week – May 23 or 24. It would have been even higher and possibly more devastating than the flooding caused on May 10, thanks to rapidly melting snowpacks. However, as of Wednesday, May 16, things had changed. Derek Sutherland, the Columbia Shuswap Regional District’s team leader with protective services, says the model has been modified somewhat to forecast a peak by Friday of next week

of 73.5 cubic metres per second for the river, down four cubic metres from the May 10 surge. “It’s still over the 100-year flood mark,” he cautions, explaining that the 100-year mark is 68.6 cubic metres per second. He adds that only six cubic metres separate the 50- and 100-year record levels. Before and since the May 10 flooding of the Salmon River Valley and properties along Salmon River Road – and elsewhere, much work has been done by residents and others. On Tuesday, May 14, provincial wildfire crews, in the absence of wildfires, were busy working on DeMille’s Farm Market next to the Salmon River Bridge and the Trans-Canada Highway, as well as properties along Salmon River Road. A group of 17, they’re helping stressed and exhausted residents with sandbagging and general preparation for further potential flooding. Combined with what’s already been done, Sutherland says things are starting to look good. “We feel like we’re getting Salmon River Road in good

(Martha Wickett/Salmon Arm Observer) shape, we have a plan for it, we’re implementing that plan, and the forecast is cooperating.” Sutherland adds that the forecast can change; while minimal amounts of rain aren’t a concern, a heavy rainfall could push up the river levels. He said the work is starting to focus on recovering the Salmon River as well as responding to the 2018 lake freshet. With larger than normal snowpacks to melt, the focus will be on protecting properties and critical infrastructure near the lake. Salmon Arm draws most its water from the lake, so protecting the water treatment plant at Canoe Beach from flooding, for instance, will be a priority. If you require support, including sand and sandbags, contact the Shuswap Emergency Program at 250-832-2424.

Flooding could be seen all along the Salmon Valley, including this field photographed on May 10 on 50th Street SW. (Martha Wickett/Salmon Arm Observer)

Chief Civilian Director considered that RCMP officers may have committed criminal offences and on that basis he submitted a report to Crown Counsel for review by the prosecution service. The Interim Chief Civilian Director did not make a recommendation on whether charges should be approved. After reviewing all the evidence provided, the prosecu-

tion service concluded that the standard for laying charges had not been met. A statement explaining the reasons for not approving charges will be made public following the conclusion of related legal proceedings involving the suspect. As the related charges are still before the court, the prosecution service will not be releasing any further information at this time.

Pair crash vehicle, steal another Jim Elliot Salmon Arm Observer

The occupants of a stolen vehicle that collided with a transport truck west of Sicamous went on to steal the vehicle of a responding firefighter and continue their flight from police. On May 8, at approximately 7 p.m., the Sicamous RCMP responded to a collision three kilometres west of Sicamous involving a westbound Ford F350 and a transport truck. According to witnesses, the F350 truck crossed the centre line and struck the

commercial vehicle’s trailer before rolling into the eastbound ditch. The male driver and female passenger quickly got out of the rolled truck and began asking passing motorists for a ride away from the scene. An ambulance and the Eagle Valley Rescue Society Truck, as well as an off-duty Sicamous firefighter, arrived on the scene to provide assistance. The man and woman from the rolled truck stole the firefighter’s idling Honda Civic and drove off west-

bound at high speed. Upon further investigation, the RCMP discovered the F350 had been reported stolen from Calgary in April. Information was passed on to the Salmon Arm and North Okanagan RCMP. The stolen car was spotted travelling south through Enderby and the RCMP pursued them. The stolen Civic was later located abandoned on Highway 97A near Powerhouse Road south of Armstrong. An RCMP dog handler

tracked the suspects to an abandoned house east of the highway. The suspects surrendered without further incident. A 32-year-old man from Calgary and a 23-year-old Manitoba woman were arrested and remain in custody. Both face charges of possession of stolen property and theft of a motor vehicle. The man was wanted by the Kelowna RCMP on charges of breach of probation and failing to appear. The RCMP’s investigation into the incident is ongoing.

MLA starts food fight

A rookie Liberal MLA has started a food fight in the B.C. Legislature. Kamloops-North Thompson MLA Peter Milobar introduced a private member’s bill that would eliminate the per diem that some MLAs who live nearby the legislature can claim. Milobar’s bill would strip the $61-a-day per diem for the seven MLAs – all of them NDP – who represent ridings in the Capital Region. It would exempt the two dozen or so B.C. Liberals who have homes (or other living arrangements) in the area but represent a different region of the province. It’s clear it hasn’t taken Milobar long to learn the political ropes – being able to come across as holier-than-thou while saving a place at the trough for his political colleagues is no easy feat. If the B.C. Liberals were serious about cutting back on expenses, the bill should target all MLAs who have accommodations in the region. Or better yet, simply ask all MLAs to pay for their meals on their own dime – the $105,882 basic salary, along with an out-of-town living allowance of between $12,000 and $17,000, should be more than enough to keep them in Happy Meals. To suggest an MLA who represents the Capital Region has time to pack themselves a peanut butter sandwich lunch before work, but those renting a home possibly even closer to the Legislature do not, simply defies logic. While we are impressed by the agriculture minister’s frugality, we question the need for legislation making home cooking mandatory for MLAs. Is a bill designed to save taxpayers some $6,000 worth having our elected representatives be forced to cut an evening meeting short so they can rush home to throw a Lean Cuisine into the oven? Of course not. But that was never the purpose. The bill was meant to score some cheap political points while keeping a space for Milobar and his colleagues on the gravy train. -Black Press

I opened another one of the drawers and found a small wooden box. It contained number of flies that could only be described as exquisite. Each one, so meticulously tied, had been perfected over the course of a lifetime spent fishing countless lakes and rivers and streams. It was obvious at a glance that Ralph had mostly been a dry fly fisherman. Dry fly fishing is different somehow. It is more delicate, more precise. As I looked at his patterns I could almost sense his anticipation as he presented one of his perfectly tied #16 Tent-wing Caddis patterns to a trout holding in the shadows of an overhanging branch. As I stood there looking at his handtied flies, I began to get a sense of who this man had been and what his time on the waters must have meant to him. I also realized from the condition of the flies in the wooden box that he must have contin-

ued to tie flies even after his long legs could no longer carry him to his favourite streams. Flies he knew he would never cast. Each fly, as it was tied, however, must certainly have carried him back to runs and riffles and memories of lakes and streams long ago. As I looked down at the flies in the box, I could imagine him standing there, casting his line. I could feel the warmth of a long ago summer afternoon’s sun on his face. I could feel the tug on the end of his line. I held my breath and in my mind I set the hook and held on as the reel screamed off line and a bright shiny silver, threeand-a-half pound rainbow broke surface, tail-danced trying to break free and then took off for open waters. I don’t think I will ever use those flies in that small wooden box. I think I’ll just hang onto them and admire them every now and then.

When it comes to the Iran file, there is no Plan B GLOBAL VIEWS Gwynne Dyer If U.S. President Donald Trump’s re-imposition of American sanctions against Iran does not cause Iran President Hassan Rouhani’s government to buckle at once (which is almost unimaginable), there is nothing else he can do short of going to war with the country. And he couldn’t even win that war. Iran is entirely within its rights in condemning Trump’s action. All the other signatories to the deal that hobbled Iran’s nuclear program — Britain, France, Germany, Russia and China — agree that Tehran is in full compliance with its terms, as do the United Nations, the Interna-

tional Atomic Energy Agency and U.S. Secretary of Defence Jim Mattis. All of Trump’s complaints about the deal are about things it was never intended to cover, and it does not contain those items because Iran would never agree to terms that effectively gave the United States control over its foreign policy. If Trump wants to try to negotiate that kind of deal anyway, it is not necessary to terminate the nuclear treaty in order to do so. But it’s a mistake to apply rational analysis to Trump’s action because this was an emotional decision, not a rational one. It is part of his ob-

session with expunging every single achievement of the Barack Obama administration: health care, the opening to Cuba, the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal, the Paris climate treaty and now the Iran nuclear deal. You can, however, apply rational analysis to every other player’s reaction to Trump’s tantrum, starting with Rouhani. He will try very hard to keep the deal alive because his own political fate depends on it. If he cannot succeed, the Revolutionary Guard and other hardline nationalists will gain the upper hand domestically and his entire reform policy will be paralyzed. Rouhani probably only has a few weeks to get public commitments to continue trading with Iran from the other parties to the deal — and

that will require them to defy the United States. Trump’s declaration only requires American banks and companies to stop trading with Iran within 180 days, but the U.S. may also apply so-called secondary sanctions against foreign companies that trade with Iran. These secondary sanctions may actually be illegal under international law, but that has not stopped the U.S. in the past (Cuba, Venezuela, etc.) and it won’t do so now. You can count on Russia and China to push back if the U.S. blackballs their companies for trading with Iran, but will the British, French and German governments also do so? Even if it risks splitting the Western alliance? Probably not, in

which case the deal really will be dead. Rouhani would remain in office for the remainder of his term, but the hardliners would be in charge. That doesn’t mean Iran will start working on nuclear weapons right away, however, because it can’t. In obedience to the deal, it has destroyed the core of a reactor that could have produced weapons-grade plutonium, placed twothirds of its centrifuges (for enriching uranium) under international monitoring and eliminated 97 per cent of its stockpile of enriched uranium. It would take a long time to get started again. The immediate impact is more likely to be seen in a tougher approach in Syria, where Iranian troops (sent to help the government

side in the civil war) are bombed by the Israelis practically every week. So far, Iran has not responded to these attacks in any way, but it could start by shooting a couple of those Israeli planes down. Then the fat would be in the fire. For several years now, the main foreign policy goal of America’s two main allies in the Middle East — Israel and Syria — has been to draw the United States into a war with Iran. Therefore, they have to provide the hawks in the Trump administration with a plausible pretext for starting the war. A couple of downed Israeli planes would do nicely. If it were just an attack on Iran by the U.S., Israel and Saudi Arabia, it would not be of earth-shattering importance. They would

probably lose a lot of planes since Iran now has good air defences, but none of them could or would do a ground invasion. Iran is a country the size of Alaska, twothirds of it mountain or desert. It has 80-million people, lots of industry and good science and technology. Invading Iran would make the Vietnam War look like a tea party. Any ground fighting between Iran and its enemies would be more likely to happen in the countries between them: Syria and Iraq. You could be forgiven for thinking both Iraq and Syria deserve a break from war by now, but they may not get it. And the most worrisome thing is that there are both Russian and American troops on the ground in these countries.

The province is still reviewing evidence related to the reconstruction of a former fire lookout on the Eagle Pass Summit. On Wednesday, May 9, a hearing was at the Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development office in Vernon. During the hearing, a provincial statutory decision-maker received information from vol-

unteers involved in the contentious refurbishment of the cabin, built on what remained of the former structure’s foundation, with new grounding wire, windows, a wood stove and a flat roof that can support approximately 100,000 lbs. “A ruling by the statutory decision-maker will be announced in due course after they have had the opportunity to consider the evidence presented at

the opportunity to be heard,” states the ministry. It is now up to the statutory decision-maker to determine whether or not work on the cabin was in contravention of the Forest and Range Practices Act, and if the cabin should be removed or modified. The statutory decision-maker could also impose a fine of up to $10,000 on the group of volunteers who conducted the renovations.

CSRD to rename park in honour of Roy Sharp Lachlan Labere Salmon Arm Observer

Former Sunnybrae resident Roy Sharp will be remembered with a park renamed in his honour. On Friday, May 25, at 11 a.m., the Columbia Shuswap Regional District will be hosting a ceremony at which the Robinson Creek Community Park, located at 5964 Sunnybrae-Canoe Point Road, will be renamed the Roy Sharp Community Park. To David Miege, who initiated a petition for the name change, it’s an honour Sharp may have fussed about but certainly earned.

“When we were doing the petition, I gave people a chance to leave a comment as well, and there were just so many incredible comments about him and then stories about how he would teach waterskiing at that park to other kids in that community – those kind of stories came out,” said Miege. “And I think it’s entirely appropriate that park be named after him. His family is 100 per cent behind it. Whether Roy would have been, I don’t know. I think might have thought it was just a little bit much because he was quietly one of the big-

Roy Sharp gest people in the community.” Sharp was killed after a May 5, 2017, mudslide came crashing down, enveloping his Sunnybrae Canoe-Point Road home. Miege said Sharp was very community-oriented individual who

loved to lend a helping hand whenever he could, and his loss had an impact on everyone in the community. “An event like that is just an unprecedented tragedy, not something you’d expect on any stretch,” said Miege. “It really affected everyone in the community in a big way and (the park dedication) sort of seemed like a good idea and everybody, not just in the little community where Roy lived but up and down the road and in Salmon Arm, really embraced the idea and supported it wholeheartedly.” Miege says the park dedication will help

people remember Sharp and be inspired by him. “It’s clearly impossible to replace a guy like that, but it can maybe indicate to each of us that are neigh-

bours up and down the road and that we can try and do some of the things that he did,” said Miege. “So help out somebody when they need it, look at your own kids

and be a great parent to them… So there’s a few things we can all learn and sort of take away from what it is to be a community minded person. I think he embodied that spirit.”

Funds sought for kitten ICU They’re the most vulnerable creatures imaginable; tiny kittens born too early because an accident or illness befell their mother. The fragile kittens need specialized care, so a Shuswap couple is raising funds for an ICU unit similar to an incubator that will give the newborns the best chance of survival. “We deal with a lot of babies where the mom has been hit by a car, or you know something tragic has happened to the mother cat,” said Barbara Gosselin of Blind Bay, who helps run the Shuswap Paws Rescue Society along with her husband Dennis. Gosselin explained the ICU they are raising money for regulates the kittens’ temperature but also has a nebulizer for delivering medication and an oxygen supply which can help ward off pneumonia, a common

Barbara Gosselin holds one of the kittens Shuswap Paws is caring for. (Jim Elliot/Salmon Arm Observer) problem for neonatal kittens that are being tube or bottle fed. Although Shuswap Paws focuses their efforts on cats, Gosselin said the ICU could be used for new-born puppies as well. The closest comparable unit to the one Shuswap Paws plans to purchase is in Lake Country. “There isn’t one locally. There’s nothing anywhere close. We’ve had a lot of neo-nates and it would really increase the odds for the babies,”

Gosselin said. To cover the cost of the ICU incubator, which has to be shipped from the United States, Shuswap Paws is trying to raise approximately $2600. The plight of the kittens is drawing small donations from all over the world thanks to the Instagram account @ beescats which Gosselin uses to document her foster-care efforts; the page boasts more than 38,000 followers. After Gosselin and the other foster families

she works with rescued 108 cats and kittens last year, she decided it was time to incorporate the group of volunteers into an official rescue society. The newly-incorporated rescue society focuses efforts on helping cats and kittens, but has also worked with dogs. The society oversees 25 pet foster homes throughout the Shuswap and around 70 volunteers. Shuswap Paws currently has 28 cats in their care, including two mothers and their litters that Gosselin is looking after in her own home. After being spayed or neutered and receiving necessary medical treatment and vaccines, the cats will be up for adoption. Donations to the Shuswap Paws’ pet ICU project are being accepted at: https:// w w w. g o f u n d m e . com/5gtqtqo.

An Unprepared Estate Can Devastate Your Family Lorraine Vigue (left) and Heather Brooke have both provided day care in Salmon Arm for over 30 years.

Child-care providers reminisce at retirement FRIENDS & NEIGHBOURS Leah Blain It isn’t an advertisement, but a simple statement: Angels gather here. That’s how Lorraine Vigue describes the children she has had in her daycare for the past 38 years. Inside there are shelves, lined with toys, lego, castles, and large bins of plastic animals. Hand-drawn pictures of children and animals adorn the walls. But most of the fun takes place outside. Lorraine is a firm believer in outdoor play and learning. Besides the playground, complete with a tire swing, there is a garden and lots of space to run. Just a few minutes away Heather Brooke, Lorraine’s longtime friend, has her homebased daycare. Her sign has Puff the magic dragon, which gives an indication of her yard, transformed into magical space for children. Heather has run her daycare for over three decades. But this year both Lorraine and Heather

have decided it’s time to retire. Tears come to their eyes as they talk about it. “I think I’ve put it in the back of my mind, I can’t think about it,” says Lorraine. “I’m going to miss it.” This was not the life they had envisioned for themselves as they earned their teaching degrees all those years ago. “I tried to go back teaching but there was no daycare,” says Lorraine. “We fell into it,” says Heather. “We wanted to stay home with our kids.” Turning their homes into daycare-approved spaces wasn’t so easy. They laugh about the rules such as having 6’5” clearance on stairs because “the kids aren’t that tall yet.” Once they were set up, both had a clear vision of what kind of places they would run. “Sharing, caring, and loving,” says Heather. “I wanted to be like their mom and I wanted them to feel at home,” says Lorraine.

The days were full of arts, crafts, songs, socializing, and lots of outdoor learning. “We always planted a garden and then put it in the fall fair,” says Lorraine. “We didn’t treat them like kids but people in a smaller body,” adds Heather.

I’m going to miss the vibrant creativity of the wonderful little people and I’m going to miss the young moms.

Heather Brooke

CAREGIVER

Of course they both have a plethora of special memories. Heather recalls one Mother’s Day when her grownup sons were both away. After running some errands she came home to find one of her daycare families had written ‘Happy Mother’s Day’ in chalk on her driveway. Lorraine smiles as she recalls the time her daycare children

played daycare, set up ‘story circle’ and took turns being her. At the end of June both Vigue Family Daycare and Heather’s Family Daycare will be closing their doors. It will be the end of an era, not only for them, but for the generations of children who have considered these places a second home. (Every Halloween many of their former daycare children stop by to trick or treat). Lorraine says she is looking forward to “unlimited time to work in the garden,” going for lots of walks and seeing more of her children and grandchildren. Heather has her place for sale. After downsizing her life she will have more time to enjoy the outdoors and outlets for her artistic creativity. And yet they both wonder how they will do without having little ones in their lives every day. “They become part of your family,” says Heather. “I’m going to miss the vibrant creativity of the wonderful little people and I’m going to miss the young moms,” says Lorraine. “It’s been a long run and such joy.”

Shuswap organizations urge boaters to clean, drain, dry May long weekend is upon us. For many in the Shuswap, that means our attention turns to the lakes and rivers, and a plethora of water-based activities: boating, canoeing, fishing, stand-up paddle boarding. For two Shuswapbased organizations, it means it’s time to turn up the heat on invasive species education and prevention efforts. The increased movement of boats and other types of watercraft into and around the Shuswap means that there’s an increased risk of an accidental introduction of zebra and quagga mussels – a small freshwater mussel native to Europe that has tremendous destructive potential. The Shuswap Watershed Council and the Columbia Shuswap Invasive Species Society are working together to try to prevent just that from happening. “Zebra and quagga mussels would create enormous problems in the Shuswap because they cling to, colonize, and encrust any hard surface under water: boats, dock pilings, water supply and irrigation systems – anything. Once they’ve established, it’s difficult to get rid of them and they just keep coming back,” says Robyn Hooper, Executive Director of the Columbia Shuswap Invasive Spe-

cies Society (CSISS). That’s not all. “The mussels will litter beaches with their razor-sharp shells. They produce foul odours, and they pollute water quality which puts the lake ecosystem at risk,” adds Erin Vieira, program manager for the Shuswap Watershed Council (SWC). “The primary way the mussels would get to the Shuswap is by ‘hitchhiking’ on boats, fishing gear, or other watercraft such as canoes and standup paddleboards from other lakes where the mussels occur,” says Vieira. “We can keep them out, as long as we follow a couple preventative measures,” adds Vieira. Hooper says the mussels aren’t known to be established anywhere in B.C., but they do occur in lakes in Quebec, Ontario, Manitoba, and several states. “That means that anyone travelling into B.C. with a watercraft is considered higher risk, and they need to stop at a watercraft inspection station as they pass by. Government staff will inspect and decontaminate your watercraft if needed, free of charge,” says Hooper. “Anyone moving a boat within B.C. should be cleaning, draining, and drying their boat every time they move from one water body to an-

other. This is a really good practice to avoid moving a variety of invasive species, but not as rigorous as a mussel decontamination,” adds Hooper. In 2017, the watercraft inspection program, which is run by the BC Conservation Officer service, intercepted 24 watercraft that were contaminated with invasive mussels. One of those was bound for the Shuswap/Thompson region, and seven for the Okanagan. “These numbers seem low, but they are scary. It could take just one contaminated watercraft to establish

zebra and quagga mussels in the Shuswap,” says Vieira. Any suspected transport or possession of zebra and quagga mussels should be reported to the Provincial RAPP line at 1-877-952-7277. For more information about bringing a boat into B.C., visit the provincial website https:// www2.gov.bc.ca/gov/ content/invasive-mussels/bringing-yourboat-to-bc.

There are a variety of bugs that live in those trees, that can and do, have a direct impact on spruce, fir, hemlock and western larch lodgepole pine, similar to the pine beetle epidemic, a short while back, and the tussock moth outbreak, attacking young/old fir stands in the Falkland region a few years ago.

Chiropractic For The Brain FAMILY CHIROPRACTIC Dr. Warren Gage In my last few articles I discussed the very negative effects that concussions have on brain function, so this week I would like to specifically discuss the beneficial effects of Chiropractic care on brain function. Understand that most people think of Chiropractic care only for bad backs, sore necks and headaches. I often get confirmation of this perception of Chiropractic when I tell someone what I do for a living and they

immediately go into telling me about their “bad back”. While I get great satisfaction in helping patients of all ages overcome back and neck troubles, I get even more charged up about the power of chiropractic adjustments when I see brain function changes in kids and adults while under care. A Chiropractic researcher at the New Zealand College of Chiropractic named Dr. Heidi Haavik focusses much of her

Powerful protection for your dog (NC) Coming home from a long day at work, nothing brightens your spirits like being greeted by an excited wagging tail. Dogs love us unconditionally and are there for us in good times and bad. That’s why as a dog owner, you want powerful protection for your four-legged friend. NexGard (afoxolan-

er) protects dogs and puppies all month long. And it comes in an easy-to-give, beef-flavoured chew. It’s fun to give to your dog, so both you and your dog are happy. Ask your veterinarian about NexGard — the soft, delicious chewable tablet your dog will love to take each month. www.newscanada.com

efforts on studying how Chiropractic adjustments improve brain function. Her research now proves specific Chiropractic adjustments assist the brain’s sensory function. This means the brain is better able to monitor how the body, especially the spine, is moving when subluxations (areas of reduced motion in the spine) interfere with the spinal cord and nerves. When the brain cannot “see” how the body is moving, function greatly decreases and people of all ages do not move as well, and can even be “clumsy” and prone to more falls. Another impact of subluxation

correction (through specific chiropractic adjustments) is an overall improvement in well being. Her research showed that after only 3 months of chiropractic care people report having a much improved health-related quality of life. For athletes and the rest of us, Chiropractic research has also shown that adjustment improve communication between the brain and your muscles resulting in improved movement of the body. This means improved performance, better coordination, and even increased strength. Another study showed that Chiropractic care makes

us stronger. Muscle strength was assessed following care and changes in the nervous system were very similar to what has previously been seen following 3 months of strength training. This study once again showed that Chiropractic care leads to powerful changes in the brain and spinal cord. Most exciting is her latest research that has shown specific Chiropractic adjustments of subluxations leads to measurable brain changes in the prefrontal cortex. Forget about neck and back pain and muscle function for a moment, if Chiropractic care was

our life. Chiropractic care is so much more than just neck and back pain. Our core philopsophical belief is that the body is a self-healing/self-regulating mechanism. Provide it with the correct enviroment, diet and lifestyle, reduce your stress levels, and get regularly adjusted and you will begin to restore good health and optimal function!

to ONLY improve function in the prefrontal cortex it would still be extremely valuable. This is because the prefrontal cortex plans complex thoughts and behaviors, controls behavior and personality, decision making, and moderates social behavior. It is also referred to as the controller of executive functions which means it decides between right and wrong, good and bad, better and best, and future consequences of present actions. It is easy to comprehend that if you can improve function in this part of the brain, we all are going to function better in all aspects of

Almost everyone has heard hit songs by the band Trooper on the radio, but anyone with a boat will be able to hear them playing live on Shuswap Lake this weekend. Waterway houseboats are hosting the Canadian rockers as part of their 50th anniversary celebrations on May 19. “The buzz around the concert this year is huge,” said Waterway’s operations manager Colleen Anderson. “50 years in business is pretty amazing.” This is the fifth year in a row Waterway has hosted a May long weekend concert. This year’s headlining act, Trooper, was formed in 1975 and is known for several hit songs including Raise a Little Hell, We’re Here for a Good Time (Not a Long Time) and The Boys in the Bright White Sports Car. Although the musical talent involved is undeniable, it is the stage itself, a 94-foot houseboat anchored near the Cinnemousun Narrows that will make the concert unique. Anderson said the show will be going on a little ways east of the sea store. Many of the boats around the stage will be Waterway houseboats. “We’re sold out for the long weekend. There is nothing left, I don’t even have a ski boat left,” Anderson said. “Anyone that’s out on the lake is more than welcome to come to the concert,” Anderson said. The floating festivities kick off at noon.

Concert celebrates Joni Mitchell’s music The music of Roberta Joan “Joni” Mitchell will be sung to celebrate, entertain and raise funds for the Salmon Arm Women’s Shelter. Wildwood Productions (aka Jake and Friends) Jake Jacobson and a group of local musicians are rehearsing for a three-concert tribute to Joni Mitchell, beginning May 25 at Shuswap Theatre. The concerts run on Friday and Saturday, May 25, and 26, at 7:30 p.m. at Shuswap Theatre. A third show will take place Sunday, May 27, at 2 p.m., also at Shuswap Theatre. Admission is by cash donation at the door.

Lil Smokies back for 2018 Roots & Blues It’s a rare turn of events when any act is invited back in consecutive years, but the response to the Montana-based The Lil Smokies in 2017 was so deafening Roots & Blues had to extend a return invitation to this outstanding quintet. This group of instrumental wizards had the mainstage audience transfixed. By the time they brought their brilliantly executed and improvised interpretation of Elton John’s Rocket Man in for a landing, the crowd was in a state of ecstasy and the group was on the receiving end of a spontaneous, mid-set, standing ovation. In the ensuing 10 months, The Lil Smokies continued a relentless touring schedule behind the release of their second album, Changing Shades. In addition to selling out prestigious venues like the Great American Music

Hall in San Francisco, the quintet was booked for renowned festivals like Telluride and Dark Star Jubilee, plus dates with Leftover Salmon and Trampled By Turtles. The Lil Smokies will be on the Roots & Blues site from Friday evening right through Sunday August 19. Vancouver’s groove-fuelled band The Boom Booms will make their Roots & Blues debut at the kick-off party on Thursday August 16. Fresh off a headline performance at the Vancouver World Music Festival at the Imperial Room, The Boom Booms mix island grooves with the sensuality of retro and neo-soul. Plus, readers of Vancouver’s Georgia Straight have named The Boom Booms their favourite local unsigned band an impressive four times in the past five years. High praise indeed. Also on board for the

Montana’s Lil’ Smokies return to Roots & Blues for the 2018 festival. (File photo) 2018 Roots & Blues Festival is Major Love. Major Love is the moniker of Canadian singer-songwriter Colleen Brown, who has a new album featuring members of Scenic Route To

Alaska, Jesse and the Dandelions, Elijah Abrams and Aaron Goldstein. With a voice akin to that of Joni Mitchell, Brown is relentlessly unafraid. In 2015, she released her

fourth solo album, Direction, co-produced by Joel Plaskett, topping college radio charts and touring Canada, Germany and the UK. The Dimpker Brothers

will be bringing a folkrock, blues-basted sound from Sweden to Roots and Blues. Brothers Adam and Martin’s debut single, Days Of Wonder, is as much a force of nature as the brothers themselves. Recorded with their musical hero, Joshua James, in American Fork, Utah, the song blends bittersweet Scandinavian harmonies with the soul of Americana. As a reminder, May 31 is the last day of Early Bird ticket sales for the 26th Annual Roots & Blues Festival in Salmon Arm. Organizers will be releasing the names of four more acts that will definitely bring a power surge of energy to the festival site from August 16 to 19. For complete information on the line-up and tickets for the 2018 festival, call 250-833-4096 or head to www.rootsandblues.ca.

their long weekend. One of the events folks might take in this weekend is the 100th annual Falkland Stampede. However you may feel about rodeos, the one thing that’s true is that, as with all high-risk activities, there is always a chance of someone getting hurt. Our movie next Saturday, May 26, is an American film, The Rider, the true story of a rising star on the rodeo circuit who faces the end of his career when he suffers a near-fatal head injury during competition. Brady Jandreau is the cowboy who, at 20 years of age, at a rodeo in Fargo, North Dakota, got his foot caught in a stirrup and the bucking bronc stepped on his head. The actual clip of the accident is included in the film. He woke up five days later with a plate in his skull and orders from his doctor not

to ride again because one more head injury could kill him. Brady is forced to abandon the very thing that has defined him, not just rodeo, but his sole purpose in life, which has been riding and training horses. The acting in The Rider is flawless, with extraordinary performances by a cast of non-actors basically playing themselves. Brady Jandreau plays a dramatized version of himself, Brady Blackburn. He is a surprisingly good actor and has often been compared to a young Heath Ledger. Jandreau’s real father, Tim, and on-the-spectrum sister, Lilly, play themselves and are potent real-life people. Campfire conversations with his rodeo buddies portray the bond created by a passion that risks life and limb. Brady’s best friend, Lane Scott, who was also a rodeo

(Photo contributed) star, plays himself. He is paralyzed, can’t speak, and suffers uncontrollable body spasms, the result of a car accident. The two are like brothers, and their interactions provide some of the most emotional moments in the movie. The Rider is a deeply moving, mostly factual story pulled from the lives of the “actors,” most of whom (including the Jandeaus) are members of the Lakota Sioux tribe in South Dakota. Guns, horses,

and pot play significant roles throughout as does the stunning South Dakota landscape, showing the American heartland in all its beauty. Everything in the movie feels authentic and raw, including the “hyper-masculine” subculture of rodeo. The very personal story sheds light on the lives of modern cowboys. The Rider, rated 14A, shows twice, at 5 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. on May 26 at the Salmar Classic.

City advocates for bridge work – soon MAYOR’S REPORT Nancy Cooper In September 2016, the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure announced the much needed replacement for the Salmon River Bridge as well as the four-laning of the Trans-Canada Highway west of Salmon Arm. As you may know, this project had been put on hold during our last year’s provincial elections. During the Union of BC Municipalities convention last fall, your Council and I met with the new Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure, Claire

Trevena, specifically regarding the planned Trans-Canada Highway improvements as well as the new the Salmon River Bridge. At that time we were assured the project remained on schedule for completion by the fall 2022. We were also assured the work would be delivered through four contracts, one for pre-loading and another three for the highway and bridge construction. In our discussion with Minister Trevena and MOTI staff, they indicated that pre-loading was a critical com-

ponent of the project near the area of the new bridge and that the contract would be tendered in the spring of 2018. As you can imagine no pre-loading can commence until the ground dries up. I have urged MOTI to finish completing whatever negotiations they are involved in to ensure the tendering of the pre-loading contact can happen as planned, this spring, so they can begin pre-loading once the area is dry. My fear at this point is that if there are any further delays, they may not be ready to commence work on the construction of the bridge when planned, resulting in a further delay in completing the much needed highway and bridge improve-

ments. So again, I urge MOTI to ensure they are ready to commence pre-loading the site this

My fear at this point is that if there are any further delays, they may not be ready to commence work on the construction of the bridge when planned...

year once the property is dry enough to be accessed. In addition, just like many of you, I have visited the Salmon River Bridge several times this

week and watched the river rise further and further, past the bottom of the bridge all the way up to what appeared to be the half-way point on the side of bridge. Fortunately, for now we are now seeing the water recede. Hopefully the water continues to decrease, although with the prediction of hot weather and possible rain later on this week, we may see the Salmon River water level rise again. In the meantime remember to be diligent and obey all signage and watch out for the flaggers. I will be away for a couple of days attending my dad’s funeral but will return as soon as possible, as I want to be here to support everyone should more flooding occur.

Making a carbohydrate conversion SIMPLY FOOD Afke Zonderland Ditching the carbs. That is, in a small nutshell what the Keto diet is all about. The ketogenic diet or keto diet changes the “fuel source” the body uses to stay energized to reach “ketosis” for optimal weight loss and health. The basic premise for a ketogenic diet is going back to the hunter gatherers diet that consisted of meat and fat augmented with seasonal berries and wild roots. We watched the Netflix documentary: The Magic Pill a few days ago and what touched me the most was the transformation that a very low carb, whole

food diet brought about for a sevenyear-old autistic girl. Gluten and dairy are often targeted as a “no-go” food for ADD and autistic children as their digestive system is working very poorly. A sandwich, even a whole wheat sandwich, is 80 per cent carbs and will give your kid a sugar high unless it is loaded with butter, cheese and a boiled egg. Our brain health is intimately connected to our gut health. Hyper activity and inability to focus is a rising occurrence in many classrooms. Perhaps a lunch box filled with whole foods and low carbs will help our

little students and keep the teacher happy too. Here are a few tips to get you started. 1. Buy a Bento lunch box, so that you can put veggies, cottage cheese and cold meat cuts, fish or soaked nuts in the different compartments (ie, no nuts in the classroom – better make that seeds.) 2. Start slowly if you have a fussy eater. Perhaps give him/her all their favorite fillings and dips. If you have a mutiny on your hand buy Silver Hills thin sliced sprouted bread. No crackers, cookies or cakes and expensive bars that are loaded with sugar. 3.Make egg wraps or supply them with wheat free crackers. All our Okanagan Rawsome Crisps are wheat free and have no added sugar. (Choose

essential

the veggie-based ones.) 4. Use sliced meat as a wrap and add your usual fillings. Pickles, cheese slices, fried eggs, sprouts, grated carrots, lettuce and cucumbers. 5. Plain, full fat yogurt with berries and a sprinkle of hemp seeds or chia mixed in. Wheat free Oopsies I made these for my granddaughter this morning. She beat the egg whites and pronounced them delicious with a slice of ham on top! Ingredients • 3 eggs - medium • 100 g plain cream cheese* • 1/2 tsp baking powder • pinch salt Separate the egg whites into one bowl and the egg yolks into another. Whisk the egg whites

Adams Lake youth create song, star in video

The song, Worthy, examines issues of teen bullying, anxiety and depression. Jodi Brak Salmon Arm Observer

One of the most prominent modern discussions surrounds bullying – how it affects people and how to put an end to it. In late March, a group of youth singers from the Adams Lake Indian Band teamed up with the songwriting powerhouse N’We Jinan to tackle this issue head on with their song Worthy. Worthy was written and performed by a group of nine girls: Lola Thomas-Purdaby, Selena Davis, Angel Cameron, Jada Michel, Sasha Johnny, Cece Thomas-Jules, Lana Thomas, Hannah Willis and Brooke Stensrud. These girls all have their own part to play in the song and video, as does the

Adams Lake Indian Band for their work making this project possible. “I thought it would be a good memory for all of us girls, because we’ve known each other for a long time,” Davis says. “Making the video was the best part, just cruising around with all of your friends and shooting video,” continues Thomas. While the process was fun and rewarding for the girls, the song itself takes a more serious tone. “There is three different parts to the song, they’re about anxiety, depression and suicide,” Thomas-Jules says. “A lot of people don’t think people actually go through that, but it turns out a lot of people do suffer from it

and it could be hidden so well.” The girls sing of how this affects their lives in very real ways and, perhaps more importantly, how to overcome these feelings. “Some of us went through this stuff we sing about, so basically the whole song was about what we’ve been through, and just letting each other know that we are worthy and that others care as well,” Thomas says. They hope their song can give some kind of comfort to others, spreading the message that everyone is worthy — even when they feel otherwise. “I hope it makes people feel happy, and that they’re actually worth something,” Thomas-Purdaby says. “It makes me feel a lot bet-

communities,” says David Hodges, one of N’We Jinan’s founders, also noting it has evolved in many ways since they began. In its current form, the N’we Jinan crew visits First Nations’ communities to work with the youth and pack the entire process of writing a song, recording and filming a music video into four days. Worthy has generated a positive response over social media, with many thanking the girls for sharing their message. “In my mind I didn’t really think that it would go this far,” Thomas-Jules says. “I didn’t think people would actually be like, ‘this helped me… I’m still here today because of this song.’” Hodges admits he was impressed by the wisdom and maturity of these girls.

The singers from the Adams Lake Indian Band featured on the song, Worthy, practice their performance with producer David Hodges before they took the stage at the UBC Old Auditorium in Vancouver for the release of N’We Jinan’s sixth album, Dreamkeepers. (Photo by Jen Thomas) “Worthy kind of showcases a bit of that, because those kids have been through some tough times,” Hodges says. “But the deeper we dove, the more I realized that these girls are very wise, kind of beyond their years, because they have to be. They didn’t want to give up on themselves.” “These are real issues these girls are going

through,” he continues. “It’s not just a song, it’s actually their life transposed into a song. They also know there are other kids out there that can relate to the way they feel. They saw themselves as positive voices that could speak to people on these issues. That’s what we do with N’we Jinan, is just giving kids a voice, and that’s the ultimate goal.”

ter knowing that this song is making them feel good about themselves and that they’re getting more positive.” “It’s like in the words, ‘you are worthy.’ We all have been bullied by someone. I hope the song helps someone realize that they’re more than just what people say about them,” adds Davis. N’We Jinan is a music initiative founded by David Hodges and Joshua Iserhoff in 2014 with the goal of visiting First Nations’ communities in Quebec and working with their youth to create music. The word N’We Jinan in the Cree language means ‘we live here, we belong here,’ and represents their goal of giving First Nations youth a voice and sense of belonging. “The initial goal of it was really just to provide artistic opportunities to First Nations’

Chase

Friday, May 18, 2018 Page B7

‘Quaint’ never gets old History of Chase revived through tours.

The first lot in the township of Chase was sold to William Price – surveyor at the Adams River Lumber Company on May 5, 1908. One hundred and ten years ago, life in the area was very different. At first Chase had only four cars; most residents had a variety of skills supplementing their income. However, they had the train, and daily entertainment consisted of meeting passengers arriving at the train station twice a day – at 9 a.m. and 9 p.m. It was a world very different from today. On May 5, 2018 local historian and village councillor David Lepsoe put on two historic tours of Chase. The tours were sold out, more than 60 people attended, showing a great interest in learning about the history of this picturesque village. Lepsoe has been putting on these tours since 2004. He wanted to share his passion for history with like-minded individuals and anyone interested in the

culture and history of the area. Lepsoe dedicated many volunteer hours and personal funds to develop the historic tours. “It is always work in progress,” he says, and the booklet was a very important step. This year he added a slideshow of historic photographs revealing even more fascinating facts from the past. His partnership with history enthusiast Vic Skijie and professional event planner Elena Markin have brought up the tours to the next level. During his tour Lepsoe encouraged people to touch the historic artifacts – the old power pole and the façade of the Underwood Hotel. Involving the sense of touch is really valuable when exploring history, as you can feel the tangible objects that generations before have touched. Sensing how important exploring history with the sense of touch and as a token of appreciation of Lepsoe’s dedication to the his-

tory of the community, Skijie gifted two antique chairs used by the general manager of the Adams River Lumber Company Walter Lammers and Mr. Mason, the treasurer. The chairs date from the beginning of the century and Lepsoe was delighted and honoured to receive them. “When the Adams River Lumber Company closed, the town turned to tourism,” says Lepsoe. “It is now time once again to turn to tourism – the village has a wonderful opportunity to showcase both its history and its close connection with the Secwepemc communities. This, along with some new historic hiking trails, will not only showcase our history, it will create a form of sustainable cultural history injecting much-needed tourist dollars into

the area. Every year it seems another potential heritage house is torn down. Last year we lost the original fire hall. When the Balmer house, which was last on my tour, was torn down last month, I thought this tour was needed to bring attention to the enormous opportunity we have here in Chase to not only save its history, as well the huge economic opportunity for the area.” A tourism professional from Ontario attending Lepsoe’s tour spoke to the beauty and the historic treasures of Chase, saying, “Quaint will never go out of style, and it will always attract tourists and newcomers.” Suggestions for funding, grants and donations to further develop the historic tours and continue this educational initiative are welcomed.

Our country must focus on three vital things: develop more good jobs, because many are disappearing; build new businesses that can be taxed, rather than increase the burden on existing taxpayers; and improve our physical environment while we do this. One obvious way to achieve this is to encourage ‘value-add’ in the oil industry. Instead of exporting our crude oil to other countries, let’s process it here. Refineries can be built along B.C.’s coast, employing large numbers of workers in good paying jobs for decades and generating massive new taxes for our governments. (It is uneconomic to build export refineries in Alberta, which is why there are none there. All export refineries in the world are built on the ocean.) Up to 85 per cent of a refinery’s annual operating cost is the price of the crude oil and the natural gas that it requires. Because Canada has large inexpensive reserves of these two resources consultants say that an export refinery near to the oil fields would be the lowest cost refinery on the entire Pacific Ocean. If we build it we can provide a substantial market for B.C. natural gas and help Alberta and Saskatchewan make 20 per cent more from their bitumen than if it is exported. By keeping the refineries in our backyard we can also opt to decrease their CO2 emissions. Shipping diluted bitumen (dilbit) to any other country would result in far more global warming. A proposed refinery at Kitimat for

Black Press Media CEO David Black. (File photo) example was going to save 23 million tons of CO2 emissions per year when compared to every other bitumen refinery in the world. That is equivalent to taking six million Canadian cars off the road forever. Some people were concerned about the proposal because they worried about increased emissions from within Canada. Should that be our concern or should we be working to reduce CO2 emissions globally? Coastal refineries would also protect our ocean from dilbit. Dilbit differs from the conventional oil in Alaska-to-Washington tankers, which floats if spilled. There is only one published study that shows what would happen if there were a spill of dilbit in B.C.’s coastal waters. The study was thorough and overseen by Environment Canada, Fisheries Canada and Natural Resources Canada. It proves that because of all the grit in the ocean from B.C.’s glacial rivers, most of a dilbit spill falls to the bottom within three hours. There is no way to prevent that and no

way to retrieve the dilbit so the ocean and fishery would be ruined for generations. We are imposing carbon taxes on our oil industry. That made sense years ago when neighbouring countries were also promising to tax carbon emissions. However, it does not now because they did not. As a result companies worried about taxes are simply moving south of the border. Many, like Royal Dutch Shell, France’s Total, American ConocoPhillips, Norway’s Statoil, American Marathon Oil and American Koch Industries have recently pulled out of Canada and increased production elsewhere. Carbon taxes are crippling our economy while accomplishing nothing to reduce global warming. There is a better approach to reduce CO2 emissions in the oil fields. Governments should push for, and help support, pilot plants to test the use of cold solvent catalysts instead of hot steam and water, to melt the bitumen out of the sand formations. Most field emissions would then disappear.

One last point. Refineries are the source of most chemicals used by mankind. For that reason huge and fundamental industries locate near refineries to use the chemicals in manufacturing, scientific research and medical research. If we build large refineries we can capitalize on these associated opportunities too. So, here are some common sense ideas to achieve the three vital needs: Instead of punishing our oil companies with carbon taxes, and actually hurting our economy, let’s help them switch from using steam in the oil fields to cold solvent catalysts. Then let’s increase Alberta and Saskatchewan production in order to build more jobs, increase government tax revenues, and reduce CO2 emissions in other countries where emissions are high. Instead of encouraging the oil industry to export our raw resources, let’s process them here and create several thousand new jobs in the refining and chemical industries, especially in B.C.’s Northwest where they

are badly needed, as well as more new taxes for governments. Instead of shipping dilbit by pipeline to the coast, let’s transport dry inert bitumen by train. This will be less expensive because the rail lines across B.C. are in place and the distance is short. If and when a derailment occurs, backhoes can pick up the bitumen. Instead of putting dilbit in tankers, let’s ship refined fuels that float and evaporate if spilled. Instead of shipping dilbit to other countries, let’s build the greenest refineries on the planet in B.C., cutting the world’s CO2 emissions and producing the cleanest fuels on the globe. We would become a world leader in environmental refining and other countries would follow. Let’s use our common sense to improve things in Canada and the world. The added benefits would be economic growth, increased government tax revenues and a greener planet. -David Black is chair of Black Press Media and president of Kitimat Clean.
