COALMONT RESIDENT Michelle Cole’s granddaughter, also named Michelle, stands in front of the partiallycleared rockslide the day after it tore down the mountainside.

Coalmont driver dodges rockslide Michaela Garstin editor@similkameenspotlight.com

Three people are lucky to survive an avalanche that engulfed a section of the Coalmont Road as they drove home on March 5. Rocks tore down the mountainside where the road turns into a single lane, around 10 kilometres from Princeton.

Michelle Cole, her granddaughter and another women were driving from Princeton to Coalmont during a snow storm that evening when their truck was hit by rocks and a huge cloud of dust. “It was the most terrifying moment of my life. I thought we were going to fly off the side off the cliff,” Cole said. “I couldn’t see anything, I just gunned through.”

Rockslide - small rocks common At first Cole thought the loud noise was a large truck behind her, but quickly realized she was in the middle of a rockslide when the boulders started pounding her truck. ICBC has declared her truck a write-off because it’s so badly damaged, Cole said. Coalmont residents are used to navigating through smaller rocks on the windy road, especially in the winter when the ice melts, causing the rocks to break away from the cliff. The rockslide happened right where the narrow road becomes one lane, making it impossible to avoid for Coalmont resident Anne Passey. “The rocks are right on the curve, so by the time we got there, we were right on it,” she said. The rocks ripped off her car’s spoiler and dented the trailer hitch.

Princeton teachers will be giving final report cards, but won’t be issuing report cards that were supposed to go out earlier this year. Members of the BC Teachers’ Federation are refusing to make-up report cards that were not issued prior to passage of Bill 22, said BCTF President Susan Lambert in a news release. “It’s standard labour practice to not do struck work,” said Robert Tarswell, president of the Princeton District Teachers’ Union.

But teachers have been giving Grade 12 students their marks needed for graduation when they’ve asked, he said. Education Minister George Abbott said he intends to compel teachers to issue retroactive report cards, but Lambert said this isn’t needed because teachers have been communicating with parents through notes, emails and phone calls home. “Teachers feel quite secure that they are making contact with parents, and that the parents know how they’re children are doing,” Tarswell said. Lambert said making up strike work would make the strike ineffective.

Passey said she is used to avoiding rocks on the Coalmont Road, but was upset crews didn’t clean it up that night. The crews later moved the larger rocks and pushed smaller ones to the side, but the rocks could were still dangerous because of the narrow width of the road, she said. “If you’re driving at night, you need to go 40 kilometres an hour, not 60, because you could come around the corner and there could be a big rock in the middle of the road.” The rocks on the road don’t affect summer tourism, but the village has been seeing more winter tourists lately. “We’re used to the rocks, but tourists have to know to slow down,” Passey said.

SpotlightOPINION Princeton Hospital service needs to change Michaela Garstin editor@similkameenspotlight.com

Last week I drove a family back to Princeton whose van had flipped over in Manning Park. The van’s windows had smashed and their luggage was thrown across the road by the time I got to them. The family was shaken up, but everyone seemed to be OK. They wanted to get checked by a doctor just in case - they had been thrown around violently when the van flipped while driving around an icy corner. On the way back, I told them the Princeton Hospital was in “LLTO” status, meaning only someone who had a life threatening injury or who was losing a limb would be seen by a doctor. Since they weren’t badly injured, they would have to see a doctor in Penticton or Hope to be treated. Even if one of them had broken a leg or arm, a doctor wouldn’t have treated them at the hospital. Needless to say, the family was very surprised. They decided to wait to see a doctor until they reached Mission, on their way to the Vancouver airport. But they shouldn’t have to wait. Princeton Hospital is the first hospital you reach after driving through Manning Park. It should have a fully operational emergency room for people who get hurt while on that dangerous stretch of road. It’s unreasonable to make people travel an hour and a half to Penticton, especially when they’ve already spent time driving through Manning Park. A lot of accidents in Manning Park are bad enough to destroy vehicles - this is what happened to the family I helped. What if one of them had cut their arm or broke their leg? Or what if one of the children had a concussion? The Princeton Hospital emergency room should be available to help them. Driving an hour and a half to Penticton doesn’t cut it.

YourOPINION

Biased ranting on teachers is comical Dear Editor, Response to Tom Fletcher’s write up I support the Teachers’ strike because I believe that contracts should be negotiated not legislated. We lose this right and it becomes one more black mark against democracy. The BCTF supports many unions in third world countries who are striving to have what we have in a democracy - the right to negotiate. The government’s stand to legislate any group back to work is scary not liberating. Who is using bullying tactics? From my

Is your glaring propaganda any better than anyone else’s? Teacher tantrum? Who’s throwing the tantrum in this write up? Mr. Fletcher, you are positively foaming at the mouth and it’s really comical. Sorry Mr. Tom Fletcher but I cannot accept your biased statement and comments. I’m thinking that perhaps I shouldn’t have responded to your rantings, but someone had to. M. Masiel Princeton

observation point, it’s not the teachers but the B.C. government. Poor Mr. Abbot, if he feels offended, perhaps it’s a wake up call to do a better job that the one he is now doing. What is so wrong with “budding campus radicals”? I rather see radicals than “budding fascists!” Are you not somewhat showing paranoia when you state, “This left wing groupthink pervades the education system...” Do you want young people to be nonactive, non-thinkers, non-questioning individuals?

Thoughtless vandals leave mess at cemetery Thoughtless vandals, looking for firewood have left a mess at the historic Granite Creek Cemetery. For the last seven years, Bob and I have volunteered countless hours caring for the cemetery, planting bulbs, cleaning debris and placing markers on the unmarked graves. Imagine our shock to learn that someone cutting down dead trees for firewood decided to leave their mess behind. The road to the cemetery is completely blocked by tree debris. Now that Bob has an ICD, he is no longer allowed to use a chain saw. This means that we won’t be able to cut any branches that are too large to be cut by hand and dragged away. I would suggest that whoever is responsible for this disrespectful mess come back and clean it up. Diane and Bob Sterne Coalmont

LETTER WRITING POLICY

Submitted

Vandals blocked the road to Granite Creek cemetery with tree debris.

Editor’s note: To see the full version of this letter, go to www. similkameenspotlight.ca Dear 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 Gayton, of Summerland, wherein Mr. Gayton 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, Emails, telephone calls, etc., that they cannot ignore our point of view. Parks Canada has worked long and hard on the national park proposal, and many of the seemingly insurmountable obstacles that initially faced the projective been overcome by compromise, concession and the redefining of boundaries.

In one case, an all-terrain vehicle was purchased in Westwold.

It’s not known how the suspect was able to access bank orders. It’s believed the name the suspect is using was obtained through identity fraud. “The real victim is being victimized again,� said Molendyk, adding that fraud artists are always looking for ways to obtain personal information for crime. “People have to be careful about giving information out.� The suspect is described as a white woman, in her mid-30s, 5 feet tall and about 150 pounds. She has long brown hair. If anyone has information on this crime, they are asked to call their local RCMP detachment.

South Okanagan Crime Stoppers is asking the public’s assistance in locating the following individuals. Lawrence Jordan Brown is wanted for armed robbery, possession of a weapon, theft under $5,000, resisting arrest, uttering threats and two counts of breach of probation. Brown is described as a 21-year-old native male, five-foot-eight, 140 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes. Bonnie Delores Dagenais is wanted for possession of drugs for the purpose of trafficking and

breach of undertaking. Dagenais is described as a 43-year-old native female, five-foot-three, 100 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes. Terry Lindsay Hock is wanted for two counts of assault and failing to attend court. Hock is described as a 52-year-old white male, five-foot-seven, 186 pounds, with brown hair and blue eyes.

Princeton Kokanees dust off caps Contributed editor@similkameenspotlight.com

The Princeton Kokanee Swim Club dusted off their caps and swimsuits to attended a

winter swim meet in Kelowna. Participating in swim meets and practices is a typical event for most other Okanagan Region swim teams, but it is a first for the Kokanees.

Being invited to the Ogopogo meet in February was a “treat” for our swimmers, who took a whopping 40 seconds off their total best times from the year previous. The Kokanees took eight swimmers to the meet. Aiden Neilson took six seconds off the 50 meter freestyle time that took him to provincials last year. Holly Atkinson dropped her 50 meter freestyle time by nine seconds, coming it at 1:18.93. Gillian van Genne did quite well in her 50 meter backstroke, bringing her new best time down 10 seconds to 1:08.34. Ainsley Neilson also dropped time in her 50 meter freestyle. The eight swimmers swam in five to six races each and had great spirits throughout the day,

cheering on their teammates in every race. The Kokanees really are a close knit team! The Princeton Kokanees are making preparations for their summer season to begin, and if you would like to follow the success of the team check out the new team website at www.princetonkokanees.ca The Princeton Kokanee Swim Club is a young club that has been operating since the pool opened in 1992. The goal of the swim club is to develop a spirit of companionship, improve physical conditioning, and self-discipline while learning to swim in a fun environment. The Princeton Kokanee Summer Swim Club is registered with the BC Summer Swimming Association and swim as part of the Okanagan Region. We are a club that operates with a volunteer executive elected by the members during the annual general meeting held in October.

Matt Delaram, owner and operator of the Country Kitchen family restaurant is extending an invitation to residents to help him celebrate his 10th anniversary in Princeton and to join him in the celebration of “Norooz.� The tradition celebrating the coming of spring/the new year, Norooz (meaning new day) has been celebrated by all the major cultures of Mesopotamia—Sumeria, Babylonia, Akaddia and the ancient kingdom of Elam in Southern Persia. Norooz has been celebrated for at least 3,000 years and is rooted deep within the Zoroastrian belief system (The religion of ancient Persia before the advent of Islam 1,400 years ago). Although the passage of time has modified celebration styles and techniques, the majority of the symbolism remains. Norooz remains as the largest celebration for Iranian people. Spring cleaning of their homes (Khaane Tekaani) and the purchasing of new clothing begins the New Year celebration. During the Saal Tahvil, (the exact astronomical start of Spring) the setting of a special table (Haft Seen or Sin) with seven items representing the seven creations and the holy immortals protecting them or the ritual of growing seven seeds as a reminder that “this is the seventh feast of creation, while their sprouting into new growth symbolized resurrection and eternal life to come,� is a major ritual that takes place during Norooz.

Haft Seen (Sin) with seven items representing seven creations and the holy immortals protecting them.

Generally, the seven items are: “Seeb (apple), Sabze (green grass), Serke (vinager), Samanoo (a meal made out of wheat), Senjed (a special kind of berry), Sekke (coin) and Seer (garlic). Sometimes instead of Serke they put Somagh (sumak, an Iranian spice).� Visiting family members, other relatives and friends and the sharing of meals takes place within the first few days of Norooz. When guests are leaving, the older people generally give a gift to the younger ones—“Eidi� a sum of money. During the 13th day of Norooz, (Sizdah Bedar) the Sabze is disposed of outdoors, and the people spend the day in nature, enjoying picnics and playtime outside.

Jelly bean airplane flying to Princeton Michaela Garstin editor@similkameenspotlight.com

A fast-flying, acrobatic airplane deckedout in jelly bean design will be soaring to the Princeton International Air Show this summer. Pilot Kent Pietsch’s act includes a deadstick routine from 6,000 feet and a rooftop landing on a moving RV in his Jelly Belly sponsored airplane. He is also known for a comedy act that features a detached airleron and a wingtipscraping pass down the runway. “The finale of this performance includes Kent landing in front of the crowd and placing the spinner into the hand of an individual,” Pietsch’s website says. Airplanes are travelling from all over North America to Princeton International Air

Show on July 21. Pietsch (pronounced peach) began his flying career at a young age and soloing at 16 years old. In 1974, he began flying commercial charters for the business with his father. Pietsch has logged well over 25,000 flying hours to date, and will be travelling from North Dakota for the show. Pietsch loves to fly, but said the audience is always his number-one priority. “If you can’t entertain, you have no business being out there,” he said. “The gratification is in knowing that people are enjoying themselves.” He flies an 800-pound Interstate Cadet with a 37-foot wingspan. The plane’s horizontally opposed fourcylinder engine can generate 90 horsepower and a G-force ranging from -3 to +5.

FUNDING FOR STUDENTS, NOT FOR WAGE HIKES. The BCTF is demanding a 15 per cent wage hike and other beneďŹ ts that would cost $2 billion and raise taxes for BC families. Virtually all other public sector unions have settled for no wage increases. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unacceptable that schools are disrupted and that students and their families are inconvenienced over an unreasonable salary demand in difďŹ cult economic times. The union is making claims and demands that simply donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t add up.

BCTF CLAIMS AND DEMANDS

FACT

The union wants more paid time outside the classroom â&#x20AC;&#x201C; sick leave for teachers on call, expanded bereavement and discretionary leave.

The government wants more time for teacher training and to ensure that Pro-D days really are for professional development.

The union says all teaching positions should be selected on the basis of seniority.

The government supports seniority but qualiďŹ cations must also count so that math teachers teach math, and science teachers teach science.

The union says that teachers who perform poorly in evaluations will be dismissed â&#x20AC;&#x201C; â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;one strike and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re outâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;.

The government wants to support teacher improvement through a standardized evaluation process.

The union says that government refuses to negotiate.

There has been over a year of negotiations and 78 full bargaining sessions.

The union says that class size limits have been eliminated.

Class size limits will remain in place on all grades across BC.

The union says that BC has 700 fewer special needs teachers.

2100 new teaching assistants have been hired since 2001. And, with a new $165 million Learning Improvement Fund, we will hire more.

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to focus on what matters most in education â&#x20AC;&#x201C; BCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s students. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why we are focused on per-student funding which is at an all time high, not on wage increases. We all want to do more to make BCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s education system even better. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the driving force behind BCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Education Plan that teachers, parents and students are helping to shape. Teachers care about their students. Parents care about their childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s future.

Thrift store recyclables shipped throughout world Contributed editor@similkameenspotlight.com

Have you seen this trailer parked behind the Princeton Hospital? Do you know why it’s there or who it belongs to? It’s the solution to a problem for the Princeton Hospital Auxiliary Thrift Shop. The problem? What to do with our clothing and linens that do not sell, or has a stain or tear and is not in good enough condition to put out for sale on our racks. We could not find anyone to take these items and hated to see them go to the dump. It was quite a dilemma and all our members worked to find a solution . Then along came Amelia MacArthur and Canam.

They put the trailer behind energy to our organization and these years. We could not do it without the hospital “with permission” it shows, as we are a very sucyour donations and shopping at and we fill it with recyclables cessful auxiliary. Thanks to the residents of our boutique. at our own pace. Maureen Turner When it is full they remove Princeton for supporting us all it and pay us per pound. Then they sort and grade the merchandise and these are sent around the world. This creates employment for many in developing nations. The money the auxiliary gets is then used for the purchase of equipment for the Princeton and Penticton hospitals, Ridgewood Lodge and to donate to health related organizations in our area. Last year alone we donated $28,592 to these endeavours and also a student bursary of $2,000. Submitted Our volunteers work very hard to donate their time and The Princeton Hospital Auxiliary uses this trailer to store clothing and linen they can’t sell before the recyclables are shipped off.

Princeton’s arts scene kicks off Contributed editor@similkameenspotlight.com

Princeton’s art scene has seen progress a year after the local arts council developed a culture plan to make arts, culture and heritage more visible in town. In September, ArtsBC hosted its first sustainability seminar event in Princeton, which looked at organizational structure, capacity and forward planning. The Princeton Museum followed by holding its own strategic planning session. A dinner and meeting organized by the Town of Princeton and the Princeton Arts Council took place in October. This yearly event was established to bringing community organizations together to discuss their events, prevent duplication, share skills and develop a community calendar for the year.

“The Princeton Cultural Plan was developed through almost a year of research and community consultation to identify the key arts, culture and heritage issues within Princeton and Area H,” said Princeton Community Arts Council facilitator Vicky Jones. Progress has been made on increasing the visibility of the arts in Princeton through the improvement of websites for the Town of Princeton, Princeton Arts Council and the Princeton Museum, she said. A joint initiative between the Town of Princeton and community organizations has also begun to develop branded promotional materials including a new museum leaflet and an arts and culture pamphlet including a public art map, which will be out in the spring. “Important progress was also made last

year in developing partnerships within the community, including the relationship established with the Upper Similkameen Band,” Jones said. “This relationship continued throughout the year and has resulted in the second annual Upper Similkameen Spirit Festival taking place in April 2012.” The group has identified several items to focus on in 2012, including the continuation of an art in public places program, improving existing marketing materials, expanding accessible programming and developing resources to help organizations with their succession planning. The culture plan is available for review on the Princeton Arts Council website or by dropping into the Sunflower Gallery at 105 Vermilion Ave.

Mr. Chris England, President and CEO of Silver Fields Resources Inc., announced recently that the Ministry of Energy and Mines has granted a Mines Act permit which authorizes exploration activities on the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Keremeos Silver Project. The mine is located on Mount Richter, between Keremeos and Osoyoos in the Similkameen Mining District of British Columbia and consists of 15 mineral claim tenures, encompassing 2,048 hectares (4,506 acres). The exploration plans for 2012 include mechanized trenching and sampling as well as up to

2,000 metres of drilling as recommended by Mr. Peter Folk, P.Eng., the mine manager of the former Dankoe-Utica Silver Mine, and Silver Fieldsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; project geologist. The issuing of the Silverfields permit comes on the heels of an announcement by the province in January that it was withdrawing support for the national park proposal in the Okangan Similkameen. That announcement was followed shortly afterwards by a statement issued by Parks Canada on their website that they would no longer pursue a dialogue with stakeholders regarding a national park in the area.

March is Kidney Health month. It is estimated that in B.C. approximately 200,000 people have some level of kidney disease and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even realize it. Early-stage kidney disease goes unnoticed in over 90 per cent of people with it because there are no symptoms. You are at risk of kidney disease if you have high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease or a family history of kidney disease. People of Asian, Aboriginal, African and South Asian descent are at increased risk as well. Up to 40 per cent of people with diabetes and 35 per cent with heart disease also have some level of kidney disease. Elizabeth Kightley canvasses locally for the Kidney Foundation. This year marks her 10th anniversary as a Kidney Foundation canvasser. Congratulations Elizabeth, and thank you for your years of dedication. Elizabeth will continue to canvass outside of Cooperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Foods for the remainder of March. For more information on your kidney health

ANSWER TO PUZZLE NO. 340

HOW TO PLAY: Fill in the grid so that every row, every column, and every 3x3 box contains the numbers 1 through 9 only once. Each 3x3 box is outlined with a darker line. You already have a few numbers to get you started. Remember: You must not repeat the numbers 1 through 9 in the same line, column, or 3x3 box.

ARIES: Want to quadruple your happiness? Stay as you are, Aries. Now is not the time for big changes. A bank mistake is rectified quickly. Good work! TAURUS: The number five appears in various forms, prompting you to question if there is more behind it. Only a superior has the answer to that question, Taurus. GEMINI: Your sixth sense tells you all is not right at home. Do a little snooping, Gemini, and find out why things are not adding up. It is not as you suspect. CANCER: Seven times over, you asked, and seven times over you were rejected, but not this time, Cancer. Things have changed and the pickin’s are ripe, so go for it. LEO: Eight is enough. In fact, Leo, it might be a little too much and you might want to pare down in light of what lies ahead. Life is about to get hectic. VIRGO: Cats may be rumored to have nine lives, but you don’t, Virgo. Better attend to those nagging health concerns before they turn ugly. Finances improve. LIBRA: Decades of work pay off this week big time, Libra. Throw a little party to celebrate. Ten envelopes present 10 different solutions— only one is right. SCORPIO: Eleven is your lucky number, Scorpio. Use it wisely for 11 times the fun at an upcoming function. A secret is revealed with awesome results. SAGITTARIUS: Offers arrive by the dozen. Don’t say yes unless you’re certain you can commit to them, Sagittarius. A gesture of kindness leads to a lifelong friendship. FOR ENTERTAINMENT ONLY

Let’s hear a story about a terrible thing I did a long time ago when I was in the navy. We had a mean Petty Officer on board the Haida. I noticed one night after supper he went out on the quarterdeck to brush his teeth. He put them in a jar to shake them around or whatever. I timed it perfectly, and running up the deck I collided with him at a hard run and his teeth flew up in the air and sank to the bottom of the sea. Like I said a terrible thing to do, but it could have been him instead of his teeth. See Ya Next Week!

Obituaries

FORBES, Marjorie Elaine It is with heavy hearts and deep sadness the family announces the passing of Marjorie Elaine Forbes. Beloved mother, wife, grandmother, and great-grandmother. ‘Marge’ passed away in Princeton, the town of her birth on March 1, 2012. She is survived by her 3 daughters; Gail (Frank) Lindley, Gwen Elliott, Eileen (Stewart) Kudryk. Her 8 grandchildren; Bill, Pam, Barb, Mike, Kevin, Bruce, Tony and Danny,10 great-grandchildren and by her brother Bob (Beryl) Mullin, one nephew, many nieces and cousins. Sadly, Marge was predeceased by her husband Bill Forbes, daughter Alana Forbes, parents Denny and Polly Mullin, her 3 brothers Ed, Jack and Ike Mullin and her nephew Rob Mullin. Marge’s greatest joys were spending time with her family and friends and having sleepovers with her grandchildren. Some of her other interests included sewing, knitting, reading, playing bingo, bowling and going to the casino. Marge was fun loving with a unique sense of humour and she touched the lives of many people with her smile. We would like to express our sincere thanks to all of the staff at Ridgewood Lodge and Princeton Hospital who looked after Mom with such loving care as she lost her valiant battle with COPD. We would also like to express a very special thank you to both Dr. Adams and Dr. Smith for watching over her. A Memorial Service will be held at a later date.
