From a little seed, Hedley market grows into its third year By Vickie Hansen, Hedley Farmers Market The Hedley Farmers Market is a nonprofit society than runs a market during the spring, summer and fall of each year, attracting visitors from around the world. It started two years ago in 2010 with seven vendors and has grown to include 22 farmers, crafters and food producers. The market continues to show steady growth each year. Organizers of the market would like to express their thanks to everyone in the valley who has supported the market over the last two years.

formation taken from the 2010 report, The Economic Value of Parks Canada. By taking an average of all seven B.C. national parks, she came up with the following: - National parks increase GDP by 37.1 million per year. - increases labour revenue by 25 million per year. - increases tax revenue by 3.5 million per year. - increases visitor spending by 49 million per year. - Develops 570 new full time jobs related to the establishment of a national park. - Provides capital funding of 5 to 10 million per year. “We wouldn’t be seeing all these benefits at once,” she cautioned, “a park can take 100 years to develop.” O’Loughlin also noted that all costs for a national park, including management, would be borne by the federal government. O’Loughlin also spoke about wild fire prevention, water and drought management, and hunting and problem wildlife - local concerns to many who feel would be exacerbated by having a large national park in the region. She assured the audience that Parks Canada could and would control wildfire and water issues. With respect to hunting, O’Loughlin said that First Nations would maintain their constitutional right to hunt, but other hunting would be phased out over years to “respond to hunter’s wishes.” O’Loughlin offered assurances that a national park would work with local governments. She spoke of previous opinion polls that favoured a national park, noting that the polls showed that the strongest opposition to a park came from a portion of no park opponents who were born in the valley or who had lived there for a long time. O’Loughlin believes that a national park would provide stability, funds and staff support for ranchers around the park. “It is better to ensure that the park is surrounded by healthy, viable working ranches. It is not in anyone’s interest to see this landscape fragmented, sold and divided up into a few 40 hectare private lots,” she said.

MANAGING Your Money

Why you don’t want a tax refund

Photo by Steve Arstad

Members of the Lower Similkameen business community met for their first Business after Business meeting of the year at the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce on Feb. 23. In the photo above, Keremeos realtor Dan Melnychuk addresses the group of approximately 25 people.

School District 53 report By Marieze Tarr, Board of Education Chair School Board Column The Board of Education held a very successful workshop on February 14 where we discussed governance, transparency and communication. We set ourselves goals in these areas and will be revisiting these goals in the fall. We have agreed to look at different governance models so that we will be bringing more of the issues directly to regular board meetings. We hope to have this model in place by the fall. At our management meeting Terry Collis our Special Education Principal gave a very informative talk on the funding of special needs students in our district. We asked him to help us understand this better as many trustees are very concerned about the needs of these students. We feel strongly about meeting the needs of all students in our district. Our policy committee is currently hard at work revising all of our policies and we are also in the process of writing a policy around policy making. We would like to include more stakeholders in our policy process. Please look at our website to see the policy changes that we are currently working on and give us your input. One of our trustee’s Trustee Rob Zandee (Oliver) attended a Technology Conference held at Simon Fraser University. He came back with many ideas and we will be looking at how we can incorporate some of these ideas with our technology plan. If you are interested in learning more about this please look at this link: http:// cultureofyes.ca/

The board approved a field trip for grade 11 and 12 geography students (Osoyoos Secondary School) to Glacier National Park. This trip will take place May 9-12, 2012 and the students will be visiting Lussier Hot Springs, Radium Hot Springs, Revelstoke and of course Glacier National Park. What a wonderful opportunity for these students. R’Native Voice (a locally developed course) was brought forward to the board of education for approval. The board is very proud of this course developed by SESS principal Marcus Toneatto. The program will be taught in partnership between the Okanagan Nation Alliance and the school district. R’Voice is a grade 11 course and is a holistic approach to teaching aboriginal youth about their culture and history and to assist them to develop self-empowerment and make choices that will support them in making decisions that will lead to a more sustainable future. This course will be taught outside the timetable but students will earn credits towards graduation. We hope to expand this course to the other high schools in our district. This semester, six of our students are doing their Level 1 Welding Certificate through a partnership of Okanagan College and SD53. These students are attending this course in Oliver and some of our trustees were lucky enough to see these students at work first hand. This is an example of how students can graduate with a Dogwood as well as some experience and credits towards a trade. Did you remember to wear pink on February 29? This was antibullying or Pink Shirt Day. This day brings attention to the need to stop bullying.

It’s great to get a tax refund – but it could be even better for your long-term financial health if you didn’t get one. You see, that’s your money you’re getting back – overpaid taxes the government has had for its use interest-free. Money that could have been working for you throughout the year. Delete that refund, improve your tax planning, keep more of your money, and enhance your financial future with these tips: • Boost your paycheque by reducing the amount of tax withheld and invest the money for your own benefit Each pay period, a portion of your pay is sent to the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) to cover your estimated year-end taxes. If you got a refund, it’s likely because the withheld amount is excessive. You can apply to have it reduced by having your employer complete a Personal Tax Credit Return form (TD1) that updates all the deductions and credits you claim and more accurately reflects your current circumstances. For example, you may now be eligible for further child care expense deductions or for spousal maintenance that weren’t including on the TD1 form that was filed when you were first hired. • Get quarterly tax installments in on time If you are required to make tax installments (due on the 15th of March, June, September and December) get them in on time to avoid penalties and interest. If you think your income will be lower next year, check with your accountant about reducing those payments. • Get an early RRSP deduction An RRSP contribution often results in a tax refund. But when you make your contribution earlier in the year, you can apply to the CRA for a Letter of Authority that

will permit your employer to reduce your paycheque withholding taxes based on the amount of your RRSP contribution. If you make RRSP contributions through payroll deductions, you don’t even need a Letter of Authority. Simply ask your employer to adjust your tax withheld to reflect your RRSP payroll contribution. There are lots of other ways to get your money working for you.

But don’t delay as this offer is good only to the first 60 exchanges. Participating retailers are also offering upfront a discount of $150 or more. They have all the information needed as well

as documentation that shows the emission ratings of all the new stoves. In many valley communities in B.C., smoke from wood burning units is the greatest source of particulate matter next to open burning. Particulate matter is one of the main pollutants that leads to poor air quality and can have serious health impacts. Upgrading is important, but equally important is the operation of a wood stove, the firewood used, and the chimney. New EPA wood stoves when operated correctly will reduce smoke pollution by 90 per cent and use 1/3 less wood. Chimney smoke is a sign of an inefficient burn, producing unnecessary air pollution, and wasting wood. To learn more about achieving an efficient burn with a wood stove or wood insert, attend the Wood Heating Workshop on March 151, at the Community Skills Center,

206 Vermilion Avenue in Princeton. Workshop starts at 6:30 p.m. and ends at 8:30 p.m. Come early (anytime between 5:30 - 6:30 p.m.) and see the outdoor burn display where an old inefficient wood stove is compared to the technology of a new wood stove. Witness the difference. There will be prizes courtesy of Mr. Fireplace and North West Stoves. There will be nothing dry about this workshop except the wood. For more information on the Great Okanagan Similkameen Wood Stove Exchange Program visit one of the participating retailers: Princeton Builders Mart, Bob’s Stove Repair, Accent Living, Okanagan Home Centre, Penticton Home Hardware, and OK Falls Red Barn. You can also obtain information on the RDOS website: www.rdos.bc.ca (click on Departments - Air Quality - Wood Heating).

THE REVIEW Publisher: Mark Walker 605 7th Ave, Keremeos Box 130, Keremeos, B.C. V0X 1N0

Editorial So much for MP agreement At last- our members of parliament in Ottawa have found something they can agree on. Unfortunately, their sudden ability to see eye to eye provides no benefit to the country. A news stiry coming out of Ottawa in mid February told of a closed door meeting of Ottawa MP’s, geared towards looking for ways to curb MP spending. Government Whip Gordon O’Connor called the meeting in which spending curbs of five to 10 per cent across the board - including Old Age Security - in MP budgets were sought. What better way to get all federal parties to agree on something? “The opposition never agrees with the government on almost any policy until it comes to their own perks and privileges,” said CTV’s Ottawa Bureau Chief Robert Fife. “A lot of them are upset. They don’t want to have fewer flights (from 64 to 52), they don’t want to lose their business class flights, they don’t want to see cuts to their office budgets, and surprise, surprise, the opposition parties agree with them,” Fife added. Cry us a river. Parliament is the only federal department that doesn’t publically post its expenditures. There has long been a demand for more accountability for Parliamentary spending, and we believe there is no better time to do this than now, while everyone else’s spending is under the microscope. If there is a reason why parliamentarians should be given a free pass from reality, we’d like to hear it. Barring that, any movement to stand in the way of honest attempts to ground our MP’s with respect to the economic realities of the day should be seen as nothing less than pork barrelling and the practice of elitist politics. Much like our parliamentarians, it is an issue that all Canadians will have no trouble finding common ground on - but for the exact opposite reasons by which it unites our MPs.

Taxing times for B.C. government By Tom Fletcher Black Press Before this week’s budget debate is drowned out by the shouting over the teachers’ dispute, here’s a look at the main points and the arguments unfolding around them. The setting for Finance Minister Kevin Falcon’s first budget is what he dreaded when Premier Christy Clark handed him the job. Recovery is painfully slow, with mining and petroleum growing and forest products struggling to hold and build on gains made in Asia. This and the $3 billion dismantling of the harmonized sales tax moved Falcon to limit overall spending growth to an average of two per cent for the next three years. That means little or no increase to all areas except health care, education and social assistance. Despite holding the line on public service pay and not replacing 2,000 positions over the next three years, Clark and Falcon

had to postpone the elimination of the 2.5-per-cent small business income tax to get to a balanced budget by 2013. And Falcon has again dangled the prospect of raising general corporate income tax from 10 to 11 per cent, but not until 2014. Business experts applauded the hard line on spending, noting the contrast with Alberta’s big spending and Ontario’s big spending hangover. NDP finance critic Bruce Ralston says Falcon’s twoper-cent spending target is “unrealistic,” and the whole program is motivated mostly by two by-elections this year and a general election next year. He said the proposal to raise general business taxes is a repeat of his effort to save the HST, and it won’t happen if the B.C. Liberals win in 2013. B.C. Conservative leader John Cummins made the bizarre claim that it’s an NDP-style “tax and spend” budget, and inaccurately accused Falcon of raising taxes on small business. He

also joined the NDP chorus of outrage over ICBC, BC Hydro and medical premium increases. Some other hot topics in the budget: • Selling assets. The big one here is B.C.’s liquor wholesaling monopoly, run out of warehouses in Kamloops and Vancouver. Falcon insists the private sector does this kind of work more efficiently, and union contracts will be protected in a bidding process. The NDP argues that selling off a monopoly puts this government cash cow at risk, and points to private retail stores with higher prices and lower wages. The proposed sale of 100 surplus Crown properties has raised cries of “selling the silverware to buy groceries.” But land sales are nothing new for governments, and Falcon prefers that to raising taxes. • Carbon tax. The last scheduled increase goes ahead in July, adding another penny on a litre of gasoline, followed by a freeze and

review of the whole climate program. Ralston says the climate plan is “in tatters,” along with dozens of other policy areas that are also under review after 11 years of B.C. Liberal rule. NDP leader Adrian Dix vows to keep the carbon tax and its offsetting personal income tax cuts, direct carbon tax revenues to transit and rural energy-saving retrofits, and hike the general corporate tax rate from 10 to 12 per cent to pay for it. • HST. Asked what he would have done as finance minister, Ralston suggested getting rid of the HST sooner. Dix continues to misrepresent the HST as solely a transfer to big business, ignoring the small and medium-sized businesses that have a year left to take advantage of input tax credits. Simon Fraser University economist Jon Kesselman has estimated that poor people will be worse off when the HST ends, while the rest of us will see a very small net benefit.

Setting the record straight on Legion funding To the Editor: We at the Keremeos Legion are happy to inform the people of Keremeos and area that from January to December of 2011 we were able to support 23 organizations. With your help we gave out $12,489, down from 2010. Some of the larger ones are three by $1,000 scholarships to SESS students, who are going on to higher educations. Similkameen Christmas Hamper $1,455 to help the less fortunate, Girl Guides $1,060, Karate Club $1,680. We know you are thinking, “Why do they give these donations out when they openly say that the Legion is just scraping by?” Well, let us remind you again. All this money that goes out in donations comes from the support you have given us, by way of supporting our meat draws. There is a misunderstanding in the public view as to how the Legion must use funds raised. All the money we gain from meat draws must be returned to the community - any gaming licensee will tell you that. If we don’t donate we would have to forfeit our license for gaming. We are soley supported by canteen sales, hall rentals, suppers held on the last Saturday of the month, after the meat draw. An example of one thing we give and get is Kars Under the “K” - we donate $500 and they provide us with the beer garden venue. Many of you understand that we have a volunteer bar staff. Any Legion member who volunteers for the community usually receives no remuneration. We do it for community selfreward. Legion members pay $44 in annual dues. The local keeps $11 and the rest goes to command headquarters for their support of community events and donations. A list of Legion events include: Gucci Cards (Monday and Thursday), Free Bingo (Tuesdays), Darts (Wednesday), Bunny Races (Friday), Meat Draws (Saturday and Monday). On the last Saturday of the month, Gary cooks

a good meal for $5 - where else can you get a complete supper for that price and have lots of company? Our canteen people are volunteers. We have a new person on Sundays who has a long list of special alcohol and non-alcohol based drinks come and try them out. Remember we told you about our new heating / cooling system the village helped us get. Well, come and see how well it works, even though it doesn’t feel like winter, it still is and the Legion is warmer now than it used to be. There is still the idea that the Legion is the “old boys club,” to remember their war days, etc., but now our members are baby boomers. We are an old club of a new generation who would like to survive. This can only happen with your support. Taking out a membership can help too, and is very easy to do. With a membership there is no need to be signed in and you are able to come and go as you please. So, we ask again: Please come and support the Legion, so we can continue to support the community with gaming money. We are a happy crowd and enjoy company. With the membership you can do the same. We also invite those that used to be members to come back for a visit and renew old friendships. A membership allows you to be able to visit any Legion almost anywhere. On a final note, the Spinoza bear program continues with the Keremeos Legion. The Spinoza bear - “the bear who speaks from the heart”- is provided to children in our community who have cancer and other serious illnesses, or who are living with a disability or trauma. Getting a bear to a child is simple: an application form can be picked up at the Legion. Please speak to me if you would like more details about this program. In closing, come one; come all to the Legion so that together we can continue to support our community. Yours in comradeship, Beverly Remizove, Legion President

Watching parliament in action reminiscent of primary school behaviour To the Editor: I did a dumb thing the other day. I watched a parliamentary debate on T.V. I saw our politicians at work. What a joke! They heckled each other , booed when others were talking, acting more like spoiled children than grown men and women. What I saw was like the first day of kindergarten before the teacher has control by the second day. They do not work for the common good. They have to toe the party line and do as they are told. Their only priority is to get power and

keep it, no matter what. They disagree when a good idea is broached, not because of the idea, but because the other party thought it up. I do not see much choice when voting. I think Arnold Schwarzenegger said it best about his political opponent. The people in Ottawa running our country are just a bunch of “girly men,” without the guts to do the right thing for the benefit of Canada. Pat Sanderson, Cawston

Belief in honest government a difficult thing to do in these times To the Editor: I am ready to give up, as there is far to much porko - corruption, deceit and dishonesty to harp about - making it impossible for the very air we breathe to clear. I believe it is hopeless to believe Canada will ever have an open - honest government. Now the political news of today is about “robocalls” that the opposition vows to keep alive. With all the other political sleaze reported on a daily basis the former wrecking ball of Ontario, NDP Premier Interim Liberal leader Bob Rae is flapping his gums similar to a seagull which only eats, poops and squats. I suppose what I would like to get is a simple answer to a very simple question. Just who in hell is running the business of Canada while these high paid porko’s spend

countless hours of time and public money arguing about many crooked deceitful things that should have been a no - no from the get - go. With all the so - called educated smarts some porko’s pride themselves on - most of them are dumber than buffalo “s--t” to coin a phrase Tonto used to describe the Lone Ranger. The future of our home and native land is sliding fast and the only good thing is the political morons will drown along with us in their self made pile of crap. Bringing in Americans or those expensive- has been retired porko’s for another kick at another pot of gold just confirms the mess Canada is really in. If just for one day the business of Canada could be conducted in a professional adult manner - if only. Tom Isherwood, Olalla

Responsible budgeting in an uncertain world. To prosper in today’s turbulent global economy, discipline and focus are essential. All around us we see governments paying the price for overspending and uncontrolled debt. In BC, we have a different story.

Team building exercise at SESS dominoes By Steve Arstad news@keremeosreview.com Elementary students at Similkameen Elementary Secondary School are keeping busy during their lunch hours this winter through the development of house team competitions. Students in grades five through

seven are mixed into four houses Inferno, Tornado, Earthquake, and Blizzard. The monikers are based on the elementary school sports teams designation as “Storm.” Students are divided up into the various houses to compete through the school season in a variety of athletic, academic and social challenges.The students have engaged in basketball,

volleyball, floor hockey, spelling bees, airplane contests, domino tower building, and board games. Each team accumulates points during the year with the winning team wins the house cup. The house team idea has had a positive effect on school culture, helping to increase students’ attachments to the school and providing a structure to extracirricular activities.

The SESS elementary school gym was the scene of some nerve wracking activity on Thursday, Feb. 23 when the four house teams - Blizzard, Inferno, Tornado and Earthquake - engaged in a domino tower building contest. The teams had 15 minutes to assemble the highest free standing domino tower. Inferno took honours with a 66 cm offering. Blizzard was next at 58 cm, followed by Earthquake (54 cm) and Tornado (5 cm).

Village council moves towards budget finalization By Steve Arstad news@keremeosreview.com Keremeos Village Council proclaimed March to be Community Social Services Awareness Month at the Feb. 20 regular meeting of council. Much of council’s business for the remainder of the evening centred around a review of 2012 budget items. Keremeos Chief Financial Officer Rob Hager offered council an update on the budget as well as a preliminary 2012 capital projects listing for discussion by council. Tax strategy for 2012 was also discussed, with council recommending a tax hike of three per cent for the village this year. That would amount to an average household tax increase of roughly $20. Council would like to see some of that increase transferred to the road reserve for future road rehabilitation projects. “Adequate funding for road improvements is a concern,” Mayor Bauer explained, noting also that village assessments had dropped this year. Hager offered the 2012 operating and 2012 to 2016 capital projects budget to council for informational purposes, who then went through the document with the CFO. Capital budget highlights Road reserves will be increased this year to handle three projects, deferred from 2011: - 12th Avenue between Sykes Crescent and Pine Park. - 10th Avenue alley between 10th and 11th Avenue and 4th and 5th Street. - 10th Avenue between 4th and 5th Street. Pre-budget approval will be authorized for the tender and award of these projects. A total of six projects in the capital projects budget needed re-budgeting for 2012. These included: - Purchase of new dump truck. - Website design. - Parks - tree planting program. - Trail link options. - Sewer and lift station rebuild. - Sewer upper bench project - blower, filter and transformer. The funding source will be the same as that identified in the 2011 budget, although the dump truck purchase and the upper bench sewer project blower component will require additional funds to complete. Two new projects were also identified for each of the years 2013 through 2015 include: 2013 - Decorative street lighting - Purchase of an articulating boom lift 2014 - Sidewalk rehabilitation - Seventh Street sidewalk from Veterans to

10th Avenue 2015 - Surfacing of alley between 6th and 7th Avenue and 6th and 7th Street - Purchase of a sweeper truck. Deadline for adoption of the budget is May 15. Next steps in finalizing this year’s budget include: 1. Incorporating council’s direction into the proposed operating and capital budget projects budgets. 2. Schedule meetings to obtain council direction. 3. Draft the final budget. 4. Schedule public input session prior to final adoption. Council also looked at budget variances, where after adjusting for transfers to and from reserves, the general fund year end suplus is estimated to be $77,039. It was recommended that this amount be put towards the road reserve fund for future roadwork projects. In other business, council elected to rescind a number of village policies considered to be redundant or out of date. Bylaw Enforcement Issues Complaints to the village regarding bylaw infractions increased from 60 in 2010 to 68 in 2011. In 2008, the following infractions were investigated: - 33 property maintenance issues - 25 dog complaints - Two burning compliants - Two traffic violations - Six miscellaneous calls In addition, 10 dogs were impounded in 2011. Building permit inspection fees were down substantially in 2011. The village had budgeted for $35,000 in revenue, against actual returns of $16,803.45. Costs associated with building inspection services were higher than budgeted, at $28,275.5 actual versus $27,019 budgeted. The budget projections were based on revenues collected in 2010, when a single project (16 unit BC Housing complex on Veterans Avenue) brought in a single permit fee of $12, 818. Twenty-five building permits were issued in 2011, seven of which were for new buildings, one for commercial, and 17 for repairs and renovations.

Four planets in our solar system reveal four different worlds

These evenings the western sky is dominated by two planets. The brightest one, closer to the horizon is Venus. The other, a bit fainter and more yellowish is Jupiter. Later in the evening a bright, reddish object rises in the east, Mars. That makes three; the other planet is the one weíre standing on. All the planets, i n c l u d i n g Ve n u s , Earth, Mars and Jupiter share similar beginnings. They all formed along with the Sun some 4.5 billion years ago, in the collapse of a huge cloud of cosmic gas and dust. However,

their subsequent histories differ dramatically. Venus, the second planet out from the Sun, is very slightly smaller than Earth, which is the third planet. Mars comes next, and is just over half the diameter of the Earth. Jupiter is the fifth planet out from the Sun, with a diameter well over ten times that of our world. However, most of that diameter is its atmosphere. In the case of Venus, Earth and Mars, their atmospheres form a thin skin. We believe that all four planets started with more or less the same ingredients. However, being further from the Sun and much colder than Venus, Earth and Mars, Jupiter managed to retain more of those ingredients substantially unchanged. This primordial mixture is interesting for

two reasons: firstly if one passes electrical discharges through it, like lightning on a young world, the mixture forms aminoacids, important building blocks for life. Secondly it contains strong greenhouse gases. Billions of years ago the Sun was significantly fainter than it is now. If the Sun suddenly became like that today, our Earth would freeze solid. However, the young Earth had that rich greenhouse mixture which made our world suitable for life to get under way. The new living creatures gradually removed that original atmosphere, replacing it with what we have today. The decreased greenhouse effect compensated for the brightening Sun, keeping conditions on Earth comfortable. The situation probably started the same way on Venus and

Mars too. Venus is closer to the Sun and warmed up faster. If life appeared, it did not remove the greenhouse gases in time. The greenhouse effect ran away and the surface of the planet became hot enough to melt lead and tin. Mars is further from the Sun than the Earth, and could benefit with a lot more greenhouse effect. However, the combination of being a smaller world with weaker gravity, and having no significant magnetic field sealed the planet’s fate. The weak gravity allowed the atmosphere to extend far into space and evaporate away, and the absence of a magnetic field allowed the solar wind to scrub the top of the atmosphere away e v e n f a s t e r. T h e greenhouse effect weakened and Mars became the frozen desert we see today. There could be life

on Jupiter, floating around in the atmosphere. If there is still life on Venus, it won’t be anything like us, and it won’t be easy to go there to look. There could still be life on Mars, hiding under the ground. If it is now extinct there could be fossils in the rocks. Out of the four worlds, Mars is the planet that is now most like ours and also the one easiest for us to travel to and explore. Venus lies in the southwest after sunset, with Jupiter higher in the sky. Mars rises around 6 p.m., S at u rn aro u n d 1 0 p.m. The Moon will reach First Quarter on the 28th, and be Full on the 6th.

health ACID REFLUX AND STOMACH PROBLEMS By OK In Health eMagazine columnist - Caroline Sutherland Have you been having stomach problems lately? Maybe your doctor has suggested medication for acid reflux and although it seems to be helping, you may be reluctant to be on medication for something that you feel should have a simple explanation and solution. Here are some useful strategies: The important step is to see your medical doctor. I am continually concerned that people do not consult with their physician when they have health concerns. But the desire to investigate further often leads to layers behind common symptoms. On the physical level, in my experience, the stomach will directly reflect through pain or symptoms, what you are putting in to it – your food! Around 40 – 45 years of age, hydrochloric acid production wanes. HCL is necessary for the breakdown of proteins. If you are eating starches and proteins together, the combination of these two substances can lead to gas, bloating, distension and pain. A purist would probably recommend that you eat protein and vegetables together at a meal, and vegetables and starches together at another meal. As a medical intuitive, I see thousands of people each year and not everyone wants to be purists. We have to live in the world and I like to make things simple. The easiest way out of the problem is to take digestive enzymes with each meal. Look for one with hydrochloric acid if you are over the age of 45. Now let’s take a look at your foods. Sugar, dairy products and caffeine are the worst offenders for stomach problems – taken all together – ouch! As an experiment, avoid these items for 5 days and in most cases this will bring welcome relief. Stomach problems on an emotional level represent an issue that may be difficult to “stomach”, digest or integrate onto ones life. The stomach on a spiritual level represents the “power center” of the body. When people are having digestive problems, it usually means that they are giving their power away to people, places and things outside of themselves. They can defer to people that they perceive to be more powerful, competent or j more worthy than they are. Take a look at where vital energy is flowing out of your body. Our deepest desire is to invest our energy in our creative potential, our higher purpose and our spiritual connection. An interesting exercise is to close your eyes and imagine that your stomach is a flame – just like a flame in a furnace. Is the flame that you see, weak, smoky or even completely extinguished? Ask the “flame” to show you a picture of why it is less than “full power on.” Your ultimate goal is to see this “flame” as bright, clean, steady and strong, signifying that your power to digest on the physical and emotional level is intact.

HUMAN INSULIN

It has been over thirty years since human insulin has been available for diabetics. Before that, insulin was obtained from the pancreases of slaughtered cows and pigs. These insulins were not exactly the same as human insulin and did cause some adverse reactions in some diabetics.

CLINICAL TRIALS

When human clinical trials are done on new medications, two groups of people are compared: one takes the actual drug while the other group receives a placebo (a look-alike product that contains no drug). The larger the number of people studied, the more reliable the results are. Also, the drug group has to show a definite improvement over the placebo group otherwise the drug won’t be marketed.

DO YOU HAVE THE RIGHT PILLOW?

If you wake up in the morning with a sore or stiff neck, it could be due to your pillow. Since we spend 6-8 hours a day on the pillow, make sure it’s the right one for you. There are many “therapeutic” pillows on the market. Some are shaped to support the neck better and keep the spine in alignment. It might be the answer.

BREEDING GROUNDS FOR BACTERIA

Two breeding grounds for bacteria are your computer keyboard and your bedtime pillow. Because hands transfer bacteria easily, keyboards harbour lots of them. Giving them a quick wipe with a damp cloth will clear some away. As for the pillow, give it a good wash in the washing machine a couple times a year.

In these days of fast-paced, computerized times, it’s nice to know you can drop into the pharmacy and speak directly to a pharmacist in person. It’s a good feeling for us too! We hope to see you visit our pharmacy soon.

Support for the Keremeos museum during Heritage Week Contributed Thanks to the staff at the Valley First Credit Union for being such kind hosts to the volunteers manning the membership booth during Heritage Week. They made the time there pleasant and they encouraged many smiles from customers as well as the volunteers. This membership drive produced nine new members and we renewed two membersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; cards. The donation jar was continually ringing with coins being dropped in; except when those kind souls who dropped in a $5 or $10 bill, these donations go directly into the building fund. What a great way to celebrate Heritage Week. There are many events coming in the future, including a plant sale, a social afternoon and of course the meat draw at the Legion. All of this information will be on the museumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

new sites soon to go live. Thank you to all of you who have donated. If you are interested in any of the coming events, want to purchase a membership or to volunteer, call Judy at 499-2883

Gratitude expressed to all involved with the Keremeos Skating Rink Contributed December and January have gone down as one of the best skating seasons in memory at the Keremeos public rink. Rink manager, Karl Donoghue and the rink staff put their hearts into keeping the ice in good condition. Friends of the Keremeos Rink appreciated the help, in addition to the input from the local businesses and organizations that sponsored so many free public skating sessions this year. Bonnie Dickinson deserves honourable mention for bringing her extensive experience teaching skating to twenty-one children this year. Volunteers Ashley Welpton and Jenna Sipponen also came out in all weather to help and encourage the kids. Those of us with kids in local hockey wish to thank all the volunteer coaches, especially Tyrell Sladen who spent countless hours for both of the hockey programs for kids. It is great to have teens such as Tyrell, Ashley and Jenna volunteering in our community.

The Friends of the Keremeos Skating Rink raises money to improve accessibility to skating in Keremeos. This past season we were able to: • pay for 413 free passes to public skating • subsidize registration for Mites Hockey by $20 per child • subsidize drop-in for Mites Hockey (4 – 8 year olds) by $2 per participant (x70) • subsidize drop-in for Sticks and Pucks (9-13 year olds) by $3 per participant (x132) • pay the ice rental for the skating lessons • subsidize registration for skating lessons by $19 (younger group) and by $30 (older group) All of our supporters deserve kudos from the community. Some are individuals who sell raffle tickets and donate refundable beverage containers. Many are local small businesses that get little credit for the support they provide to many community projects. In particular, Valu Plus has been very supportive of our raffle, and Keremeos Building Supplies donated $500 at a time of

critical need. Sport Chek was very generous in their donation of skates and hockey equipment to the rink (over $8,500 value).This greatly improved the rental skate inventory and made hockey much safer and more accessible to kids who don’t have all their own equipment. A critical part of our funding has come from grants in aid from Regional District Area “G”. For the past three years, former director Elef Christensen has encouraged volunteerism and has understood the importance of breaking down financial barriers to improve participation in local recreation. It was great to see all the people that came to the rink this winter. It is much more fun when there is a good turn out. Friends of the Keremeos Skating Rink is looking forward to supporting programs and providing passes for the rink again next winter. Please watch for our raffle this summer. If you would like to join this registered charitable organization or if you have ideas to share, please contact Donna Bartlett at 250-499-5654.

Business development organizations look to regional district for funding By Steve Arstad The Review A couple of delegations approached the regional district board with hat in hand prior to the final draft of the budget at the director’s board meeting on Feb. 16. The regional district board meeting was visited by Accelerate Okanagan’s Martin Yuill and Community Futures’ Mary Ellen Heidt. Mr. Yuill, from Accelerate Okanagan addressed the board with respect to rollout of entrepreneurial support programs for high growth

South Okanagan technology startups, and requested $5,000 to build a technology centre in the South Okanagan. Community Futures Manager Mary Ellen Heidt also approached the board to outline the services Community Futures provides to the regional district. Community Futures was looking for a funding grant from the regional district in the order of $85,000 for each of the next three years. The funds are necessary to purchase tools needed to make Community Futures’ Economic Gardening project a regionwide program.

OBITUARY DUNHAM ROBERT CARROLL October 1st, 1922 February 11, 2012:

Bob passed away peacefully on February 11th in his 90th year. Predeceased by his son David in 2007. Survived by his wife Ruth of 61 years, daughters, Rowena (Ed) of Armstrong BC, Laura of Vernon, BC, Denise (Doug) of Lytton, BC, Arlene (Steve) of Keremeos, BC and Sue of Armstrong, BC, 17 grandchildren, 21 great grandchildren, and sister Mary Toews of Chase, BC. Bob was born in Comox, BC. He grew up on his parent’s dairy farm in Langley where he enjoyed playing the guitar and teaching gymnastics. Over the years he worked at Nickleplate mine, was a guard at Okalla, drove for Greyhound, Esso and Paci¿c Produce. Later he worked at Similco mines in Princeton and then retired in Hedley at the age of 72. He was known to many as a friendly gentle man who loved to visit. The family would like to thank Dr. Partridge and the Orchard Haven care home in Keremeos for the care Bob received over the past three years. Bob will be missed by his family and never forgotten. Celebration of his life will be held in Hedley, BC on May 12th. In lieu of Àowers donations may be made to the Heart & Stroke Foundation.
