The KIJHL Model 2020 HEAT is equipped with the latest in pandemic brakes. Development expert Dr. Bonny has thoroughly analyzed the safety requirements for quick and efficient stops and the red, white and black version passed with flying colours! It stopped on a dot! Testing will continue on a day to day basis until it is determined that it is safe to hit the road with the 2020 or 2021 version of the HEAT. In the meantime, Head Factory Foreman Fox will tinker with improving the product for the consumers. And so, as with all things…local hockey shuts down until our new normal becomes closer to a new normal we can all “live” with. YOUR HEAT snuck in a game versus cohort foes the North Okanagan Knights in the dairy land of Armstrong. As is provincial protocol the contest was fanless, as the exuberant masses viewed the event on their computer screens. The tale of the 60 minutes of ice capades

unfolded along these lines. At 7:30 pm on November 20th the puck dropped and away they bumped, crashed and whacked. Rhys “Peaner” Lepine even threw a hip check at center ice during the 1st period! Strong effort in the offensive zone saw Jarod Sigouin stretch the twine with his twisted twig, helped along by Tyson Mallet and Drew Tkachuk. That was followed by a slap of triump from the point on the powerplay from Marino Bordin, and the period concluded 2-0 for the visitors. In the 2nd the KNIGHTS got one back, however the number 2 scorer in the KIJHL Jacob Biensch from Sigouin restored the two goal lead. Later Rory Christie-Hoyle from Biensch tallied, after 40 minutes it was 4-1. In the final stanza the slap happy Bordin counted his second solo tally just 14 seconds in. Biensch from Mallet and Christie-Hoyle added another twine finder before the KNIGHTS got one back. Power forward Trevor Kennedy from Max Goldade concluded scoring for the HEAT. The North Okanagan KNIGHTS popped in one more and this game ended 7-3 for the Chase lads. Kiev Kineshanko was huge between the pipes in this one, as the HEAT were outshot by a significant margin. League play in following Dr. Bonny’s direction will not proceed until December 7th. Idled Thoughts: All those fans that paid the webcast provider for a season of shinny are crossing their fingers for more hockey, otherwise those 3 games were super expensive. The HEAT wish to express their thanks to all the sponsors and advertisers that stepped up during these difficult times to support the team. Many, many thanks! Be safe out there…we all need to do our part and STICK together… (This newsflash is dedicated to Velda and Connie who could go “postal” if they don’t get to read about our HEAT!)

RCMP Report submitted by Chase RCMP

ARSON: On November 4th, 2020 Chase RCMP were notified of an arson, which had occurred on October 24th. The complainant reported that he was hunting with friends on an unknown forest service road in Scotch Creek. Upon returning to their camp at the end of the day, they discovered their wall tent had burned to the ground. The complainant stated that nothing flammable or hot had been left in the tent that morning. Belongings which had been left in the tent had either been stolen before the fire or destroyed in the fire. The complainant estimated the loss of equipment at over $5000. Anyone who may have information about this file is asked to please call the Chase RCMP Detachment at 250-6793221. Reference file number 2020-2951. MYSTERIOUS ANIMALS: On November 14th, 2020 at 4:40 pm, Chase RCMP received a 911 call from a resident in Whisper Mountain Subdivision in Lee Creek. The complainant advised that he heard his neighbour shooting a firearm and that the shots had been going on for quite some time. Police attended the residence and spoke with two males, who were barricaded inside the house. They were both relieved to see police arrive because they were absolutely convinced that there were hundreds of wild animals—cougars, bears, deer and moose—surrounding the residence. They explained that they had been shooting at the animals, from the house, for self defence. Police saw no indication of any wildlife on the property whatsoever. The males were believed to have been suffering

from a health crisis and were transported – by police – to Royal Inland Hospital in Kamloops for assessment. Several firearms were located inside the residence, which were seized for public safety. The matter is still under investigation with regards to firearms offences – it is illegal to shoot a firearm from a residence.

sample was obtained from the 60 year old female driver—a resident of Chase. The breath sample produced a ‘Fail’ reading on the Alcohol Screening Device, indicating the driver was impaired by alcohol. The driver was issued a 90 day prohibition from driving and her vehicle was impounded for 30 days.

SHOPLIFTER: On November 14th 2020, Chase RCMP were notified of a theft at the Chase Groceteria. The owners reported that their security camera captured images of a female stealing approximately $10 worth of candy and pop. They posted the images on Facebook and received messages identifying the female. Chase RCMP encourages the female in question to attend the Chase Detachment to deal with the matter. The Chase Groceteria is a small family business that is valued by the community. This type of petty theft has a significant negative impact on local small businesses and will not be tolerated by the police or the community.

‘EMERGENCY SCAM’: On November 24th, 2020, the Chase RCMP Detachment was contacted by a local female who had fallen victim to what is referred to as the ‘Emergency scam’. Earlier that day, her husband received a phone call from a male who was crying. The male caller said something like: “Dad, I've been in a bad accident in Mexico, I'm injured and I'm in jail - you'll get a phone call from my lawyer next.” Although her husband noticed that the voice didn't sound like their son, he assumed it was because the caller claimed that he was injured and was crying. The 'lawyer' phoned, stating that $3000 needed to be sent as soon as possible – to have their son released immediately from jail – otherwise he would be held for a month. Their son had been in Mexico recently, but, at the time of the phone call, the couple didn’t know that their son was already home. The so-called ‘lawyer’ guided them through the process of sending the money by MoneyGram, which was done at the post office. The complainant realized too late that they were victims of a scam. The Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre reports on their website that, so far this year, there have been: 42,984 reports of fraud, 19,641 Canadian victims of fraud and $79.5 million lost to fraud.

IMPAIRED DRIVERS IN CHASE: On November 19th, 2020 at approximately 9:00 pm, a member of the Chase Detachment was conducting routine patrols, when he observed a black Lincoln Navigator commit multiple driving infractions. The vehicle was initially observed running a stop sign and then stopping in the middle of the intersection. The vehicle turned without signalling and proceeded into the oncoming lane of travel. Police initiated a traffic stop. During the conversation with the driver, police noted an odour of alcohol on his breath. Breath samples were obtained from the driver at roadside, with the Alcohol Screening Device. The results were a ‘Fail’, indicating that the 49 year old male driver from Alberta was impaired by alcohol. He was issued a 90 day prohibition from driving and his vehicle was impounded for 30 days. On November 20th, 2020 at approximately 10:20 pm, a member of the Chase RCMP Detachment was conducting routine patrols, when he noticed a vehicle travelling in the wrong direction on a one-way street. A traffic stop was conducted and upon speaking with the driver, police detected an odour of alcohol on her breath. A breath

UPDATE: On August 11th, 2020 at 5:48 pm, Chase RCMP were advised of an Utter Threats/ Mischief report in Seymour Arm. The complainant reported that his neighbour showed up at his door and started screaming at him and his wife because their dogs were off-leash on the beach—apparently, the neighbour’s wife had felt threatened by the dogs two days earlier. During the confrontation, the neighbour threatened to shoot the dogs, kill the complainants, and burn down their cabin. As he was leaving, he purposely rammed their truck with his, causing substantial front end damage to the complainant’s truck.

Fire Safety

The risk of CO exposure from correctly-installed, properly-used and maintained appliances is very low. Risk can be reduced even further by having a licensed contractor install, inspect and service appliances and check vents regularly for proper connection and obstruction. Other preventative steps to avoid CO build-up are: • Ensure outside air ducts, exhaust vents, and bug screens are clear. • Open the damper and ensure proper ventilation when using a woodburning fireplace. Check that ashes have completely cooled before closing the damper. • Utilize an exhaust fan when cooking on a gas stove. • Do not operate an outdooruse-only appliance, such as a portable generator, BBQ, heater, or lamp, inside a home, apartment, condo, garage, tent or RV. • Do not start chainsaws, leaf blowers or lawn mowers in a garage or enclosed space. • Leave a garage immediately upon starting a vehicle. If a detector indicates


high CO levels, open all doors and windows and immediately exit to fresh air. Seek medical attention for CO exposure symptoms, such as headache, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, burning eyes, confusion, or drowsiness. Call 911 or your gas provider’s emergency line, and do not re-enter the building. Once the building is cleared of CO emissions, have a licensed contractor inspect all gas appliances and installations within it. A supply of smoke/CO detectors has recently been donated to Chase Fire Rescue—150 of them. CFR will provide and/or install these at no charge for residents within the Village of Chase, with a waiver to proceed being signed by the owner or tenant. Please call 250-679-8655 to arrange an appointment. No one anticipates a fire or carbon monoxide emissions. No one wants either of these. But everyone should be prepared …. just in case. Part two will provide safety information about chimneys and furnaces.


Police attended the remote community and arrested the neighbour for ‘Utter Threats’ and ‘Mischief’. He was released with a fall court date. A total of 21 long guns were seized from his residence for public safety. On November 17th, 2020, the following charges were sworn against Peter SZELER with regards to this incident:

1. Utter Threats to cause death or bodily harm to a person 2. Utter Threats to burn personal property 3. Utter Threats to kill an animal 4. Mischief, damage to property over $5000 5. Unsafe storage of Firearms

Parade Cancelled

Residents and businesses urged to "Light Up Chase" submitted

Following the Provincial Health Officer's province-wide restrictions and the new Provincial Orders, it is with great regret that the Chase Country Christmas Committee has officially canceled this year's parade. Due to the uncertainty of the provincial orders regarding the Gathering and Events Order and our unique and safe parade concept, the committee reached out to the Interior Health Officer who is one of 4 members of the Interior Health COVID Task Force in charge of the order, and they confirmed that all parades are considered prohibited under "Indoor or Outdoor Seasonal Events" as part of the Gathering and Events Order by PHO until December 7th. The committee discussed whether or not to postpone the parade until the following weekend, but chose to cancel the event altogether in case the order is extended.

community has offered a way to celebrate in such a festive and safe manner and was very disheartened to hear the confirmation from the Health Officer. Maki adds, "The committee still encourages everyone in the community to "Light Up Chase" to bring some joy and peace of mind during the holidays, in a pandemic. The committee's “LIGHT UP CHASESPONSER A TREE” fundraiser for the Chase Hamper Society is still happening with encouragement to "like" their Facebook page @chasecountrychristmas and participate in the online voting from December 4th to December 14th. Many particpating businesses are displaying their trees in their business and the remainder of the trees will be at the old Nationwide Appliance building, and can be viewed through the window, or inside following the Chase & District Museum's Christmas Store's safety plans.

Obituary Harry William Kornak 1939 to 2020

Harry William Kornak passed away after a lengthy illness on Nov. 11, 2020 at Hospice House in Kamloops with his family around him. His sense of humor and legendary appetite will be missed by family and friends. He was born in Yorkton, Saskatchewan to Steven and Anna Kornak who had immigrated to Canada from the Ukraine. Harry was the youngest of four siblings: sisters Elizabeth Luce and Marty Otchenash and brother Ted. After graduating high-school at St. Joseph`s College, he worked in the bank in Rosetown so he could play hockey for the town team. That was followed by a job surveying for B.B. Torchinsky & Co. putting in sewer and water in small towns and building grid roads. After marrying Pat in 1966 in Saskatoon he went to work for H.M.C. Harrison surveying for the sinking of the shaft for Allen Potash mine. When that was completed he went back to school rather than taking the company’s next job which would have been in South America. He graduated with a degree in Pharmacy in 1974. The family, now with three kids, moved to Williams Lake, BC to take a job with Spencer Dickie Drugs. In 1981 he started a drugstore with partner Adeline Hamm. Harry and Pat retired to Chase in 2004 where they continued to enjoy golf, curling, travel, and enjoyed time with many friends old and new. He will be greatly missed by his wife Pat, his sons Scot (Patti) of Calgary, Craig of Vancouver, and daughter Deanna McArthur (Ian) of Coquitlam, and granddaughters Christina and Andrea. Thank you to Dr. Lorenz, Dr. Main and the Oncology nurses, to the doctors and the staff at Royal Inland and to Dr. Baker and all the comforting and caring staff at Marjorie Willowby Snowdon Hospice. A funeral mass was held Nov 14 with limited attendance. A celebration of life will be held on Chase golf course in the summer with a 21 club salute. Donations in his memory can be made to Hospice House. Share memories and condolences online at www.fischersfuneralservices.com
