BILLET HOMES NEEDED We need Billet Homes for the 2018/2019 hockey season!! Season is September until end of February/ March. We need you to open your home! Please help us keep THE HEAT in Chase.

Each billet home receives $600.00 per month / per player and one general admission pass. The Chase Heat will be arriving in town in August to start their 2018-2019 hockey season. Once the team has been selected the out of town players will need a place to live for the hockey season (September 2018-March 2019). The boys come from all areas of British Columbia and beyond and vary from 16 to 20 years in age. Some boys are still in school (these players attend Chase Secondary during their stay in Chase) and some have already graduated. What they all have in common is their love for the sport and their desire to provide Chase with many hours of exciting hockey. Being a billet family is a rewarding experience and adds a whole new dimension to the otherwise dreary Chase winter. It is important that you are able to welcome these boy/boys into your home and provide him/them with healthy meals and a safe environment. This ’home away from home’ is important to enable the boys to be successful on the ice and in everyday life. Providing a smoke free living area is essential. If this opportunity sounds intriguing and you would like more information please Contact Lana Adamson 250-574-3681

For CornStockers 19+, cold beverages and good company is available in the Watering Hole from 6:30-9:00, with a great view of the CornStock Stage

For those who have a great corn themed recipe that your friends and family just can’t get enough of, why not enter the A-MAIZE-ing Cook Off Challenge hosted by the Chase & District Chamber of Commerce at 6:30.

Chase Rotary’s Summer Update by Chase Rotary Club

We have had a very busy summer so far, and many people to thank for our success. We have done barbecues, we had our concession in Salmon Arm for the Musical Ride, we did the concession for the Adams Lake Interfor Fishing Derby, Father`s Day Breakfast and we are at Music On The Lake every Tuesday night with our concession, and

summer is not over yet. If not for those who take the lead on these projects, we would not have success, and if the club members did not step up and man the concession, likewise we would not have success. Then we have our Friends of Rotary that step up to the plate! What more can I say except thank you one and all!

Mom/Joanne is survived by her loving husband of 48 years, Ronald Becker, Children ,Tracey (Darren) Hoffman Sherri Becker (Craig Finkbeiner) and Wayne (Geneen ) Becker, Grandchildren David, Naomi , Daniel, Michael and Cole, and her Sister Rita Gyswyt and many many sisters and brothers in law, nieces, nephews and cousins A service in memory of Joanne will be held at the chase community hall on Aug 11,2018 at 12:00 pm with reception to follow. In lieu of flowers donations can be made in memory of Joanne to Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Hospice at 72 Whiteshield Cres S, Kamloops BC. Rest in Peace our beloved wife and mother. You are with the lord now. You will be forever missed and live on in the hearts of all those who’s lives you touched. Online condolences may be sent to Johanna’s family through her obituary at Obituary Jim Marshall June 29, 1953 - July 30, 2018 Jim Marshall of Merritt, BC, passed away peacefully on July 30th at the age of 65 with his family by his side. Left with heavy hearts and cherished memories are his wife of 34 years, Cindy, son Benjamin (Melissa) and grandchildren Alexis and Anthony, son Dustin (Alissa), sister Diane Tarry (Bob) of Chase, brother and best friend Harry (Monica) of Parksville, and many nieces and nephews and their families and many long time friends. Jim is predeceased by his mom Betty (1985), his dad Charles (2001), and his sister Clare (2014). Jim also had a second family, his co-workers at Aspen Planer in both Merritt and Vancouver. He was very dedicated to his work and was respected and trusted to make the right choices. Jim’s life revolved around family; he was always there for all of us. Jim found his real calling as the best Grampa to our two beautiful grandchildren, Alexis and Anthony. He would have moved a mountain for them. They were the light in his eyes and the smile in his heart while swimming at the Shuswap, skiing at Sun Peaks and being their number one fan at all of their events. A memorial service will be held at the Merritt Civic Centre on Sunday, Aug. 12 at 11am. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Canadian Cancer Society in Jim’s name would be greatly appreciated.

by Carolyn Parks Mintz, Author, Journalist, & Freelance Writer We’ve all experienced great meals when dining out—and the not so good ones too. Certainly a talented Chef in the kitchen makes a difference, as does the smiling server who contributes to an extra special night out. It all goes a long way to a pleasant experience. I’ve always especially respected those who, through their employment, must deal with ‘Joe and Jill Public’ for sometimes Joe and Jill may have had a bad day and proceed to take it out on whomever they encounter—whether that be a server, a real estate agent, a cashier, or a flight attendant. Not fair, but we know it happens. And those who must regularly interact with the public surely have a special knack for continuing to smile, for being responsive, and for not losin’ it when confronted with an obstreperous customer, client or passenger. But back to the kitchen, being able to cook—and cook well—is a gift and it is a calling, methinks. While I love to prepare food from scratch and create something beyond humdrum meals, I can’t imagine doing it for a living. Not only does chef-prepared food taste delicious, it often looks too good to eat. Creative presentation is part of their art. It truly sets up a lovely dining experience. And isn’t it a treat to enjoy a unique meal, something that one doesn’t cook at home? A change-up in “what’s for dinner” is always welcome. Tunes up the

taste buds and contributes to a fine dining event. We all have our favourite eateries— sometimes just for something quick but often there is an anniversary or a birthday that warrants celebrating with an excellent meal. So next time you’re savouring a lovely repast, cooked by an expert, delivered to your table by a capable and smiling server, and in a charming or beautiful setting, be sure to give a thought to those who made it all happen. Beyond the gratuity left, a kind word or two to the ‘front of house’ staff and for the behind-the-scenes chef and assistants can make their day. They can definitely take the heat—of all kinds. And aren’t we grateful? Oh, and here’s a little chef trivia for ya. Chef Bits ‘n Bites • The tall white executive chef’s hat, called toque blanche, was designed with 100 pleats signifying the many ways a master chef can prepare eggs. • The chef’s double-breasted jacket can be reversed to hide stains that may accumulate, and the double layer of cotton insulates against heat or splattering of hot liquid. • The knotted cloth buttons on chef’s jackets are to withstand frequent washings and contact with pots, pans and other heavy equipment. • Chef’s standard black and white hound’s tooth patterned trousers are intentionally designed to camouflage stains—although some chefs and cooks wear black trousers nowadays. • It can take 10-12 years before a graduate from a catering or culinary college becomes an Executive Chef.
