Regional District Okanagan Similkameen briefs Okanagan Falls Rec Commission appointments
Regional district directors appointed the Okanagan Falls Parks and Recreation Commission members at the March 1 regular board meeting. Bob Daly takes the chairmanâ€™s position until the end of 2013, while Mike Pearce will act as vice chair. Kris Poole, Randy Perrett and Peter Brown were also appointed as members.
Two year contract with CORD undertaken
The board authorized the chair and CAO to execute a two year 911 service agreement with the Central Okanagan Regional District. The board had previously signed two year agreements with CORD and Kelowna RCMP dispatch. The last agreement expired in December of 2011. One board member asked, â€œIs everything OK - was everybody happy?â€? to a non-specific response with a couple of directors commenting on their previous weekâ€™s tour of the busy Kelowna 911 dispatch centre.
Contract awarded for OK Falls water park
Board members awarded a contract for the design and construction of the Okanagan Falls water park facility project to Greyback Construction Ltd. at the March 1 regular board meeting. The project had three proponents submit a total of 12 proposals to the regional district, ranging in cost from $192,887 to $237,145. The Okanagan Falls Recreation Commission wants to construct an interactive childrenâ€™s water spray facility on the newly established waterfront park recently purchased by Okanagan Falls residents after a referundum in 2010. Greyback offered four different quotes, of which the regional district opted for the leaset expensive one at $186,200. Greyback will subcontract to JC Installations Ltd., incorporating products manufactured by Water Splash Inc. Area â€œDâ€? Director Tom Siddon, in speaking to the project, told the board that the water park was part of predecessor Director Bill Schwarzâ€™ plan to upgrade Okanagan Falls beachfront areas. Siddon spoke of having â€œserious questions about where the water comes from and what becomes of it,â€? adding that these facilities use copious amounts of treated water . Oliver Director Ron Hovanes described the water park in Oliver as being a heavy domestic water user that was operated by a motion sensor. The total budget for the project is set at $229,000.
Directorâ€™s motions introduced
Area â€œCâ€? Director Allan Patton introduced a directorâ€™s motion to write a letter to the province and the Labour Relations Board â€œrequesting in the strongest possible terms the importance of water to the Okanagan valley agriculture industry and that irrigation water for agricultural purposes be deemed an essential service.â€? Area â€œDâ€? Director Tom Siddon also requested that the regional district â€œPetition the Hon. Ida Chong, Minister of Community, Sport and Cultural Development, to initiate a study of the benefits, costs, advantages and disadvantages of an appropriate form of incorporated local government for the town of Okanagan Falls, with possible inclusion of the surrounding communities of
South Skaha Lake in the study area.â€? Siddon informed the board that, after an original request was made in 2010, the province advised the regional district to bring the matter back after last Novemberâ€™s municipal elections. â€œThe province does the study at their expense,â€? he told the board, urging their support. The board approved both directorâ€™s motions.

news (left to right): Ingrid Percival (Cawston & Area Food Bank) receives a $1,000 Feed the Valley cheque from Valley First’s Josie van Diemen, Sonja van den Hoek, Jill Gratton, Diane Francis and Vicki Morgan. This money was raised through Feed the Valley cookbook sales, cloth bag sales and member and employee donations. Feed the Valley is a corporate citizenship program created by Valley First – aims to raise food, funds and awareness for local food banks. Since its launch in March 2010, Feed the Valley has donated 200 pounds of food and more than $12,000 to the food bank.
Valley First celebrates 65 years with food drive Contributed In celebration of Valley First’s 65th Anniversary, we are asking for the community’s help in raising 6,500 pounds of food for the food bank by December 31, 2012. If our Keremeos branch is successful in collecting the highest amount of food amongst Valley First Branches, we will be successful in earning a $6,500 cash donation for our food bank (besides all that food!). All the food collected here stays in our com-
munity. Community members can help us be successful by dropping off food donations to Valley First – how convenient that we are right across the street from Valu-Plus. Currently our food bank assists approximately 60 to 80 families per month and without our assistance the food bank would have difficulty meeting the needs of our community. For more information – please visit the Feed the Valley website at www.feedthevalley.ca Thank-you for your help.

The Fair Labour Association - a U.S. based not for profit agency - has been hired by Apple to investigate allegations of workers subjected to seven day work weeks, cramped living and working conditions, and unsafe working conditions. Up to 18 workers at the Foxconn factory in Shenzhen, China are alleged to have committed suicide by jumping from the buildings windows - something the company apparently tried to solve by installing nets around the perimeter. An explosion last year killed four and injured many more at another plant. Workers are also apparently being exposed to dangerous chemicals without adequate protection. The investigation comes at a time when Apple shares are hitting an all time high, closing above $500 per share in recent trading. It has become one of the most valuable companies in the world. Experts claim the company is facing pressure to show it is not exploiting cheap labour overseas, and Apple spokesmen insist that the company will give investigators unrestricted access to the plants in question. But Li Qiang, labour activist and spokesman for China Labour Watch recently observed that even though Apple does more than it’s competitors, it is ultimately responsible for the conditions at suppliers’ factories. Li maintains that the public is right to put pressure on Apple because Apple makes the most profit of any of the computer companies in China, so they should bear the most responsibility for fixing a broken system. He maintains that it wouldn’t take more than two per cent of Apple’s profits to dramatically improve workers’ lives in China. Corporate governance campaigner Lucy Marcus may have summed up the problem this simply: “This is about a big company having to confront the question about how much control they have — or choose to take.” It’s an issue that we consumers might want to look at more closely at as well.

BCTF indoctrinating our kids By Tom Fletcher BC Views Column VICTORIA – Perhaps the single most ridiculous stunt in the lead-up to this week’s teachers’ strike was pulled at an elementary school here in the capital. A teacher gave her Grade 1 class an assignment for anti-bullying day: take crayons in hand and write to Education Minister George Abbott, demanding he stop bullying their teacher and address class size and composition. This North Korea-style political indoctrination of six-year-olds was a mistake, according to the local teachers’ union boss, who vaguely indicated that the unnamed teacher would apologize to parents. Is this self-serving abuse of teacher authority an isolated incident? My experience as a parent and journalist suggests it is not, and recent events support that. By Friday, students across B.C. were skipping class in solidarity with their teachers, led by budding campus radicals suddenly conversant with B.C. Teachers’ Federation talking points about “Bill 22.” This left-wing groupthink pervades the education system from public schools through taxpayer-supported colleges and universities. After a couple of generations of this indoctrination, almost everyone “knows” that government under-funding is at the heart of every school problem, standardized testing is an assault on the fragile self-esteem of students, and reducing class size is the top priority for improving educational outcomes. All of this is glaringly false union propaganda, reinforced in classroom “current affairs” discussions. Don’t believe me? Google “Study: Class size doesn’t matter” for the latest on a growing stack of scientific evidence that shows you and your children are being force-fed lies. B.C. Teachers’ Federation president Susan Lambert announced the strike on live TV with a remarkable string of rhetoric about the “Orwellian” legislation that will soon put an end to this teacher tantrum. The government
needs to negotiate “clearly, rationally and respectfully,” said the boss of union representatives who have spent the last year insulting the taxpayers’ negotiators by telling them to “go back to your masters” and get a couple of billion more. Clearly? It was the BCTF that announced its workto-rule plan for the fall and then took the summer off. It was the BCTF that didn’t even present its outrageous 16-per-cent wage demand until January, a full 10 months after formal negotiations began, and accompanied it with a false costing. Orwellian? At a sparsely attended rally on the legislature lawn, local teachers’ unions marched out their most strident tame trustee to demand the government “come to the table” with billions. One teacher in the crowd held up a large sign adorned with three mug shots: Premier Christy Clark, ex-premier Gordon Campbell and Benito Mussolini, to illustrate a multiple-choice question about “fascism.” This teacher should be assigned to write an essay about the Italian dictator’s formative years, and his schooling in particular. In Vancouver, a protesting teacher got big media play, holding up a sign proclaiming that “it’s not about a wage increase, it’s about classroom conditions.” This too is a lie. The BCTF trotted out its standard “children first” rhetoric, then tabled its breathtakingly out-of-touch benefit demands. It doesn’t take a math teacher to see what its $2 billion wage and benefit fantasy would actually do to classroom conditions. For his part, Abbott started out pretty keen about students and parents heading down to occupy their local school and replace striking teachers with volunteers for a couple of days. But he changed his tune after the support staff union started grumbling about parents colouring too close to their craft lines. One fight at a time, I guess. The next one will be over teacher performance assessment and the choke-hold of union seniority on school jobs. PUBLISHED THURSDAYS BY

Pro parkers need to make their feelings known To the Editor: I am a proponent of the proposed national park reserve; but unfortunately, I have been mostly reticent in my support, except for some letters to Parks Canada and a few government agencies in the early stages of the feasibility study. A short while ago, I came across my copy of the 2008 winter newsletter of the Okanagan Similkameen Parks Society, which contains an article by Don Grayton of Summerland wherein Mr. Grayton writes the following prophetic words in relation to the national park: “...quiet support is meaningless. Active, vocal support and persistent support, even by small minorities, is what politicians respond to.” I wish that everyone (including myself) who silently supported the national park reserve, had erected huge signs on their property and slapped bumper stickers on their cars, saying yes national park, and otherwise made their opinion known. For that reason, I have recently written to both the premier and the minister of environment, setting forth my arguments in favour of the proposed park. I hope that all hitherto quiet proponents of the national park reserve will also take action. In order for the park to become a reality, we have to send the provincial government such a barrage of letters, e-mails, telephone calls, etc., that they cannot ignore our point of view. We have reached a major crossroads on the bumpy highway leading to the objective of a national park, and if we hope to attain our goal, all supporters of the park have to make some noise. Parks Canada has worked long and hard on the national park proposal, and many of the seemingly insurmountable obstacles that initially faced the project have been overcome by compromise, concession and the redefin-
ing of boundaries. The park would be a refuge of scenic beauty and solitude, rich in diverse plants, animals and birds, and a place to renew and uplift the spirit. It would protect the area from destructive practises such as vehicular hill climbing and mud bogging, bush parties and the high risk of wildfire associated with them, the illegal dumping of garbage, yard waste, old appliances, furniture, etc., and a host of other misuses. The national park would also prove to be an invaluable asset to the economy of the South Okanagan and Similkameen, because of its capability to generate business and job opportunities. All this has been reiterated time and again, but the opponents of the park continue their clamour against it. I appreciate to a degree the concern of some of the opposition, as they genuinely fear that their livelihood will be impacted by the national park. However, I have no empathy whatsoever for most of the naysayers, who consist of four wheel drive and ATV operators and hunters, whose mindset is that they have always enjoyed unrestricted use of the region, free of charge, and this should and must be their right in perpetuity. My family moved to Oliver in 1966; and at that time, the rare pocket desert still covered a substantial portion of the valley floor. Today the aforesaid ecosystem has been reduced to scattered fragments by interminable agricultural, commercial, industrial and residential development. The same fate awaits the representative area of the unique and endangered grasslands that Parks Canada proposes to preserve. Once this territory is taken over by private enterprise, it will be forever lost to the public, and that includes the naysayers to the national park. Sharron J. Zuehlke, Oliver

Some observations about modern entertainment To the Editor: Everywhere I go folks ask me to keep writing. Well - you know at my age I watch TV quite a bit. We like the news and some of the true and interesting real life programs. They tell me that the commercials pay for the programs. If that is so - then why did the manufacturers put that little button on the side so can cut out all the commercials, or anything else you don’t like? I know that two thirds of the elderly (I am one) cannot understand that in a hockey game the hockey players don’t do anything in life than get into a fight over who can put a little piece of useless rubber in a net and get half a million dollars for it. I was a farmer for years. We raised enough delicious food to feed a whole city for 40 years
in the old days and they would not even give us enough money to buy a pair of shoes or overalls. We wore bare feet in the stubble fields to do it, too. So, you see - when the hockey games come on we make good use of that little button on the remote control. But when we want the news there is nothing but commercials and hockey, so our TV just sits there to hold up a bouquet of flowers or a picture of aunt Hessey while we read the funnies in the newspaper. They showed one day some Martians that landed on the earth and found no one alive, but the machinery was still here. Then they found a movie still going, showing what happened. The Martians said in surprise, “They did it to themselves!” As ever, Wilf Miller, Keremeos

Is it possible for the government to fall over “robocalls”? To the Editor: I will make this letter short and sweet and it could save tons of dormant time and mega dollars. This is one time I feel the Canadian public needs American help. A letter should be sent immediately to American President Barack Obama asking for the reassembly and expertise of robo cop to point the finger at those responsible for the dirty tricks known as “robocalls.” Robo cop would free the majority govern-
ment and the opposition from their child’s play to at least try to do what they are paid to do - the business of Canada. One more thing if I may ask - If it turns out that the Harper government got elected in a fraudulent robocall way - could those rusty parliamentary bells start ringing that ousted former Prime Minister Joe Clark from power some years back ? I can only wish for this political “gong” show to end. Ted Azyan, Osoyoos

Princeton Hospital emergency room services limited
Does your business stand out from the rest?
By Michaela Garstin Black Press
We can help your business stand out!
Princeton Hospital’s emergency department is once again set to have limited services available for patients. Only the most critical patients - those whose life is in danger or who may lose a limb - will be seen by a doctor on call all day from March 26 to 29. During this time, a nurse will make an assessment, and less-critical patients will be sent to Penticton or be forced to wait until later for care. The emergency department will also not have a doctor at the hospital from midnight to 8 a.m. from March 2 to 5, 9 to 11, 15 and 20 to 22. “The situation - rather than getting better since last May - has been steadily getting worse and worse,” said Mayor Fred Thomas. “A doctor will only be there in the most serious situations, like to resuscitate a stroke victim or sew-up a severed hand - things that have to be done immediately.” Last Monday, the emergency department was closed completely because there were no doctors available in Princeton. Patients with serious emergencies would have been helicoptered in to Penticton or Kelowna, while an ambulance would have driven people with non-life threatening emergencies to Penticton, Thomas said. “This is the first time the emergency department was completely closed due to doctor unavailability,” he said. “One of the doctors in town came back from Washington State in order to shorten that time as much as possible.” On Christmas Eve, the emergency room was closed due to a nursing shortage. “There are three doctors in Princeton, but two are over the age of 70 and one can’t work a full night shift,” Thomas said. Thomas said he has watched the situation get steadily worse during the last year when he drew the previous mayor’s attention to the problem. “It’s got worse and worse, as I predicted.” Locums were available in the past to cover for the doctors, but there aren’t any available right now. “I’m working as closely as I can with the IHA [Interior Health Authority] to reverse that trend.” Thomas is taking part in a meeting on March 15 to discuss possible solutions to the emergency room’s limited service.

Owner of starving horses near Princeton investigated by SPCA
BC’s treaties mean jobs, more business, community development and infrastructure investment for First Nations and all of us.

The SPCA is investigating a man living near Princeton who owned five severely underweight horses before surrendering them to a rescue organization. “The man could be facing charges, depending on whether the SPCA can prove he neglected the horses,” said Kathy Woodward, BC SPCA senior animal protection officer. The SPCA visited the property in November to photograph the horses. "All of them were in adequate body condition at that time," Woodward said. All the horses had been rescued by the time she got the next complaint. Woodward said it is important for the SPCA to do a thorough investigation because horses can sometimes drop weight suddenly for reasons other than neglect, such as if they get into something that makes them sick. “Charging someone with animal neglect can often take years to go through the legal system,” she said. The five horses are recovering at the BC Interior Horse Rescue Society in Kelowna, a process the organization's president Joey Tompkins said will take months. Four horses were rescued in mid-February, with another surrendered a week later. Peaches - the most underweight horse - only weighed 500 pounds, less than half the weight she should. The other horses were also underweight, but not as bad. "Babe, Jesse and Torrie are showing more weight gain. Peaches and Cricket still have a long way to go," said Tompkins on the BC Interior Horse Rescue Facebook page. The horses are eating well, and should start to put on weight soon. "Peaches is starting to get the sparkle of life back. She is loving all this attention she is recieving as well as her extra yummy food." Torrie - the horse who is most untrusting of people - is beginning to come around. "From what I have learnt she is quite stand-offish and will not let anyone get close to her. With that being said we had a volunteer Laura come over yesterday and Torrie walked right up to her and Laura was able to groom her," Tompkins said.

Paul Brandt entertains crowd at SOEC By Kristie Patton Black Press
The arena vibrated as the crowd screamed for more after Brandt said his goodbyes for the night. Even more so when Brandt came out for his encore clad in a Penticton Vees jersey. It was the perfect segue into I Was There, the theme song Brandt wrote for the World Junior Hockey Championships. He finished the evening out inviting the crowd to be Alberta Bound. Judging from the crowd’s reaction, let’s hope there was a few hundred extra seats on his bus.
Congratulations! He broke the ice with an embarrassing story about his neon pink shorts on Okanagan beach. Then he courted the audience with his big smile, signature black cowboy hat and deep voice. He even poured some romance on, singing I Do and inviting a soon-to-be married couple up on stage to dance. Basically, Paul Brandt rocked Penticton’s socks off. Brandt brought his show to the South Okanagan Events Centre on last Thursday and wasn’t short on charisma. Having local singing sensation Nikita Afonso open wasn’t a bad choice either. Afonso played original songs while praising remarks scrolled on the screen behind her from Twitter accounts of the concert-goers. With the help of two ladies in the audience outfitted in sparkly red cowboy hats, Brandt had the floor up and dancing to the song Small Towns and Big Dreams. And, just as he had women swooning by the stage at his feet, it was the perfect time to sit down and get intimate. Pulling up stools to the stage like he was sitting having a beer with friends at a bar, Brandt shared how he got to this place in his life. He explained how it all started at the Calgary Stampede where he won a talent competition and how this summer he will be returning as the headliner for the Grand Stand show. Just as the crowd felt like the relationship with Brandt was really starting to grow, he dropped the bomb. The lovely blond lady singing back up vocals and sitting with the band is his wife, who he just celebrated a 15th anniversary with. While the swooning cowgirls at the stage may have been a little heartbroken, within seconds they were like putty again. The acoustic set went into the song When You Start With Love while pictures of Brandt and his wife throughout their years together flowed on the big screen behind them. The crowd cheered as they turned to wedding photos and finally a family shot of Brandt, his wife and two kids. And just when they thought he couldn’t be any more perfect, Brandt announced the Penticton Vees had defeated the Merritt Centennials 5-3 bringing even more cheers. To say he only had the ladies going would be wrong. He belted out the upbeat, irresistible-tonot-clap-to I’m Gonna Fly and put the hammer down for Convoy which had everyone in the crowd jacked.
200 athletes from the Thompson-Okanagan (Zone 2) competed at the 2012 BC Winter Games bringing home 80 medals. Thank you to the coaches, ofﬁcials, volunteers, and families who support these growing champions. See photos, videos and results at www.bcgames.org

It’s a good time of year for dusk and dawn planet watching
Last Monday, as I left the observatory, the Sun had just gone, and in the southwest, in a line descending into the sunset glow was the crescent Moon, and the planets Jupiter, Venus and Mercury. Against t h a t l o v e l y a f t e rsunset blue, it was a beautiful sight. The Moon has now moved on to the east, but that alignment of the planets will be with us for the next week or so. If you have a chance, get out to see it. Find a place with-
out a hilly horizon to the southwest, because any hills block the view of Mercury before the sky has darkened enough for it to be visible. These alignments are striking, and in the past were often regarded as portents. Of course they are merely consequences of the way our Solar System is organized, with the planets moving in more or less circular paths around the Sun, like marbles rolling around a plate. Things are made a little more complicated for us because we see it all from our home on the third marble from the centre. The planets are not really close together. At the moment Mercury lies about 110 million kilometres away, Venus 122 million and Jupiter 840 million. The Moon is in our laps at a mere 405 thousand.
Mercury is the first planet out from the Sun; Earth is the third. As Mercury moves around its orbit, we see it alternating between being left and right of the Sun. Because it orbits close to the Sun, its separation from it in the sky is always small. We only get to see it easily when it is close to its maximum separation, and then only just before sunrise, or just after sunset, when the horizon blocks the glare. The next planet out from the Sun is Venus. Whereas Mercury is an airless rock ball reflecting only 11 per cent of the sunlight falling on it, Venus has an atmosphere and is enveloped in a layer of white cloud, reflecting 65 per cent. This makes Venus shine more brightly in the sky than anything other than the Sun or Moon. Because its orbit lies inside the Earth’s,
like Mercury, we see it swinging either side of the Sun. However having a larger orbit that brings it closer to the Earth means it wanders much further to the left and right of the Sun. So we see it in a dark sky before dawn, as “The Morning Star” or after sunset, as “The Evening Star.” A small telescope will usually show Venus as a glaringly-bright crescent, because as the planet passes between us and the Sun, we see less and less of the sunlit side. Jupiter is the fifth planet out from the Sun. This means we pass regularly between it and the Sun, and that we get to see it in the sky at all sorts of times. That cannot happen with Mercury and Venus. At the moment it lies close to the far side of its orbit, almost on the other side of the Sun. For planet watching, the situation does
not get much better. Although not part of that great Solar System spectacle, Mars, the fourth planet out from the Sun, appears in the eastern sky in the evening and Saturn, the sixth, rises around 10 p.m. If you have a telescope, do some observing. We will see another spectacular show on the evenings of 25 and 26 March, when once again the crescent Moon, Venus and Jupiter pose in the southwest after sunset. Mercury though will have sunk back into the Sun’s glare. At around 10 p.m., look at that golden star in the east. It is Arcturus, the herald of spring. The Moon will be full on the 6th.

What is Menopause, what causes it, is it a disorder or a natural period of transition? Incredibly, the exact scientific explanation of menopause is not yet fully understood and the physiological mechanisms which cause menopause have not yet been fully elucidated. There exists some controversy over the initiating events that lead to the cessation of menses and the myriad of symptoms which may exist during the peri-menopausal period (which may include the years prior to and following menstrual cessation). Even experts on the subject do not know everything about it! Thus, it is imperative that each woman become as knowledgeable as possible about her options, her own body, and what can be expected during this period in her life. Conventional medicine often views menopause as a disease to be treated with harsh medicine. Naturopathic medicine does not share this view. It sees menopause as a natural transition in a woman’s life which often passes without much notice but which can bring on some level of discomfort depending on the individual and the many variables which contribute to overall health. Many of these variables are amenable to safe, natural, risk-free methods which have been proven throughout the centuries to benefit women. High risk treatments are not necessary since many other options are available. Menopause is defined as the cessation of menses for a 12 month period. It usually occurs between the ages of 50-55 but may occur earlier or later, with the mean age being 53.3 years. The “Climacteric” is the period of time leading up to menopause and may begin a decade prior to menopause. During the climacteric period many women experience symptoms associated with changing hormone status and these include: Hot flashes Vaginal dryness and atrophy Water retention Fat and weight gain, especially in the hips thighs and abdomen Sleep disturbances (insomnia, less REM-time sleep) Decreased libido Mood swings - depression, irritability Headaches, fatigue Short-term memory lapses, lack of concentration j Dry, thin, wrinkly skin Thinning of scalp hair, some increase in facial hair Bone mineral loss (osteoporosis) Diffuse body aches and pains No wonder this time in a woman’s life is often dreaded! However, the good news is that these symptoms can be avoided and that menopause is not a disease! Quite to the contrary, menopause can be a most gratifying time in a woman’s life and it should be. It should be viewed as a time of positive change, when old responsibilities can be abandoned and new interests can be pursued; a time perhaps for taking more personal time for oneself, rekindling romance, and using the wisdom of one’s past to contribute positively to the future through guidance, example, and teaching. Most of all it is a very personal and individual time for each women, a time to discover one’s unique gifts and allow the self to flourish.

PHARMACIST AWARENESS WEEK
This is Pharmacist Awareness Week, a week set aside to raise the awareness of the role of the pharmacist in healthcare. Pharmacists believe that knowledge is a great medicine and want you to know you can always use their knowledge to answer your questions about health and medications. We are always available to help you!
BAD DREAMS & MEDICATIONS
Bad dreams can sometimes interrupt a good night’s sleep. Sometimes, these nightmares can be caused by your medication. Vivid dreams can be caused by antidepressant drugs and can be lessened with a change in dose or drug. Check with our pharmacists if you have a concern about sleep and your medications.
YOUR URINE IS FULL OF INFO
Our urine is a good source of information about possible problems in our bodies. Sometimes, too much protein gets excreted in the urine and this may need further evaluation to rule out kidney disease. If the urine is foamy in appearance, it could signify protein content. This is called proteinuria.
MARRIED MEN GET HELP SOONER
Men are notorious for not seeking timely medical advice. Evidently, married men who are experiencing a heart attack arrive at emergency units more quickly than single men even when their spouses weren’t present at the time. They didn’t want to face any recriminations for being slow getting medical help.
Many people aren’t aware they can ask the pharmacist for advice on nonprescription medications. Some people feel the pharmacist is too busy but we want you to know that we are never too busy to answer your questions about medications. It’s an important part of our job and one we enjoy.
Check in-store for great selection and more!! Are found each and every day at Pharmasave!

Alex Atamanenko, MP and his Special Guests invite you to an evening of lively discussion about the barriers and challenges facing farmers and eaters in the worldwide battle to achieve ... Tax planning for post retirement life To save the most during your working years, to build the largest possible retirement nest egg, tax planning in an absolute necessity. And it becomes even more important after you retire when you’ll need to maximize your (perhaps) limited income so you can live your dreams for all your retirement years. Here are some essential strategies for making that happen. Income split Aim at reducing your family’s total tax liability by allocating up to 50 per cent of your eligible pension income (monthly pension payments and, when you reach age 65, RRIF income) to the lower income spouse/partner for tax purposes. Share benefits Sharing CPP/QPP benefits with your spouse/partner can save significantly on taxes. Plan withdrawals RRIF withdrawals are fully taxable; manage your taxable income by withdrawing as little as possible. Take full credit Reduce the amount of tax you pay by taking advantage of all the federal tax credits (some with equivalent provincial credits) that apply to you including the Pension Income Credit, Age Credit, Medical Expense Credit, and Charitable Donations Credit, among others. Allocate assets efficiently Reduce taxes by holding fully-taxable, interest-generating investments inside a tax-sheltered RRSP, RRIF or TFSA and keeping eligible investment assets that generate capital gains or Canadian dividends and are taxed less outside your registered plans. 71 – before and after Be sure to take full advantage of the tax-sheltering benefits of your RRSP by making your maximum contribution up to the end of the year you turn 71. At that age, the government requires that you wrap up your RRSP(s) and convert the proceeds, usually to a RRIF. After you reach 71, consider putting any extra money into investments held within a TFSA where the funds can continue to grow tax-free and/or contributing to a spousal RRSP eligible investments until your spouse/partner turns 71. Consider a guaranteed investment fund This is a segregated fund that contains a guaranteed minimum withdrawal benefit so you can enjoy the potential investment growth of a mutual fund along with a guaranteed regular income which will not decrease. Consider a Monthly Income Portfolio This mu-
MANAGING Your Money tual fund option is more flexible and tax-advantaged than other non-registered options like a Guaranteed Investment Certificate (GIC) which locks in your money while locking it out of potentially higher returns and creating an immediate tax bill on redemption. A monthly income portfolio is designed to provide maximum investment returns along with a monthly income, a part of which is treated as return on capital – a tax-deferral strategy that can increase your after-tax monthly income. Save on taxes now and after you retire by using all the tax-reduction strategies you can. Your professional advisor can show you how.

Keremeos woman finds something worth sewing for By Steve Arstad firstname.lastname@example.org Erma Turcotte wanted to do something to help someone else, but wasn’t looking for a standard, everyday type of charitable act to do. “With all the heartache in the world, I wanted to help alleviate that somehow,” said the Keremeos woman recently. “I don’t have a lot of money, but I like to sew,” she continued. “I heard about an organization called ‘Little Dresses for Africa,’ and right away I knew this was for me,” she said. Turcotte began sewing the dresses about six months ago and has put together about 400 so far. She hopes to have sewn 1,000 by
the end of the year. Turcotte has the dresses delivered to Vancouver by a friend, where they are taken through a church to Victoria to be distributed by an organization known as Compassionate Canada, who sends them to third world countries, wherever they are needed. “Anyone wishing to sew or to donate new or gently used pillowcases, sheets, or any cotton or cotton blended fabric or notions, please call me at 250-499-7858,” Turcotte asked, advising that such materials may also be dropped off at Subway Restaurant in Keremeos. “I like to know that every dress is giving each little girl who gets one hope and cheer in their difficult lives,” she said.

The history of Spring Station (St. Andrews by the Lake) Contributed by Elizabeth Bork In the history of the White Lake near Kaleden, there was considerable traverse through the valley of fur brigades of the Hudsonâ€™s Bay Company between 1820 and 1848, then miners heading for the Caribou goldfields, followed by cattlemen and settlers. But 1890, homesteads dotted the horizon and freighters, with multiple teams and huge wagons, utilized the old trails, hauling between Penticton and Fairview. During the years of that steady action the trail became a road, known today as White Lake Road. Into this hilly, sagebrush covered valley arrived the Prather family in 1892, settling on the Junction Ranch. John Thomas Prather had moved his wife, Miranda Jane, and their family, Laura, James and Louis from Kansas in 1880 by covered wagon over the Oregon Trail to Deep Creek near Spokane where another son, George,
resided. At Deep Creek, twins Earl and Pearl Jean were born. Later the family moved north into Canada, to the mining town of Fairview, then to the Junction Ranch near Kaleden. When the Prathers moved up to White Lake, frieghters including Tom Roadhouse, Alec Gillespie, and Warwick Arnott were hauling everything from mine machinery to cigars through the White Lake basin to Fairview and east to Camp McKinney. Near a spring fed pond in a draw beside the present lodge located on what is now the southern property of St. Andrews Estates, John Prather set up his stopping house. It was a beautiful location, for colourful wild flowers carpeted the hillsides and groves where graceful Alpine firand majestic Ponderosa pin stood in tall stateliness. Wildlife abounded in the valley filled with melodious bird song and bright sunshine. Built of logs, the stopping house had several rooms
where passengers could remain overnight, and a stage barn where teams were kept for exchange. It was called Spring Station, also known as the â€œPrather Place.â€? For a time John Prather hauled freight while his son, James, and the women of the family looked after the station. It was quite a wonderful place for travellers to remain awhile, for there was a small orchard where delicous fruit could be picked at random throughout the season, a large garden from which fresh vegetables were enjoyed at mealtimes and stored in the root cellar against for the winter months , and daily produced dairy products. Much excitement reigned at Spring Station when bells on harness of the teams were heard from quite a distance. The Prather women would know when to have the meal prepared and related duties attended to. One of the jobs was to have the silver polished to a high shine. continued on page 19

Tony’s big adventure Contributed Tony Dawson of Cawston has been participating in an agricultural program in Tanzania since the beginning of February. He has set up a blog to describe his experiences while assisting in the development of the country’s agriculture. In the coming weeks, the Review will publish excerpts of Dawson’s blog as he discovers the country for himself. Upon arrival, Dawson spent a week in Dar es Salaam – he described the morning call to prayer as “haunting and musical against a backdrop of city noise.” Dawson enjoyed the city. He liked the chewed up asphalt in the alley that took him to his not-so-four-star hotel. He liked the the open air cafes around the corner that offered up a variety of exotic fare prepared on open BBQs. He liked the fact that he could speak English and be understood. Dawson noticed that the streets were not cluttered with stray and abandoned dogs.
news And he liked his continental breakfast of half a banana, a slice of watermelon, a cup of coffee and two slices of dry toast with margarine. Most of all, Dawson found that he already has a kinship with the people he is volunteering with who hail from many places including Canada, Uganda and Kenya. Dawson had spent the previous week in an orientation with the CUSO-VSO staff. He found that he continued to be impressed with the integrity of the organization. Transportation in Dar es Salaam had been interesting – and possibly a little crowded. Tony and his co-volunteers lined up to take the bus where they stood out like sore thumbs because they are mostly white. And then the transportation company needed to ensure its survival by having as many farepaying patrons in the bus as possible- Tony was sure that eight more people could not fit in. You guessed it – wrong again! And then of course the dallah dallah. You don’t know what the dallah dallah is? Well it is a small van that someone like Dawson crawls into with head skewed
against the ceiling and knees in someone’s backside all because it only costs a dallah there and a dallah back. The internet presented issues to Dawson intially. If anyone has written him any emails, it has been suggested trying both his accounts: wadawson@ nethop.net tonysbigadventure@ gmail.com He hasn’t been able to read any mail in either of his email accounts, but Dawson continues to Tony looks like he can still enjoy a beer. persevere as Things maybe aren’t so primitive after h e a l w a y s all. does.
