Play marks tenth anniversary for Cawston Players Contributed by Marilyn Bergen, Publicity Administrator

Photo contributed

Peter Richards, the hard bitten farmer, played by Bob McAtamney and Kate Allen, the vegetarian girlfriend of Peter’s son played by Jenna Sipponen, square off during rehearsals for the upcoming Cawston Players production of Dry Streak.

It is a tenuous relationship only made worse when Kate makes a rash promise to help bring much needed rain to the dry Saskatchewan farming community during a drinking session at the local bar. The play is a rollicking comedy combined with a serious look at a farming community, family relationships and an outsider trying to fit in to her boyfriend’s family. It is the 10th anniversary of the Cawston Players and this production promises to be great entertainment. There is already a buzz in the air for this production, so grab your advanced tickets at the Cawston Market Place or Similkameen Agencies in Keremeos for only $10. Performance dates at the Cawston Hall are Friday March 30, Saturday March 31 and Sunday April 01. All performances commence at 7.30 p.m.

It comes with a sanding unit, belly blade, dump box and a bio solids bin. The $138,000 International truck was purchased as a brand new 2010 model from a Calgary dealership that offered the village a $40,000 discount in order to move it. The maintenance department’s old dump truck will be offered for sale shortly. The 1980 vehicle comes with a belly plow and a sanding unit.

Taxpayers begin to feel costs of province’s climate action program Regional districts and municipalities begin to make payments for carbon credits in 2012 budgets as local politicians question the validity of province’s Climate Action Program By Steve Arstad news@keremeosreview.com Residents of the Regional District Okanagan Similkameen, as well as those of the Village of Keremeos might want to take a closer look at the carbon neutral policy of the B.C. Liberal government, (the Climate Action Plan) introduced during the last days of boom times, before the economy stumbled into the recession of 2008. Local taxpayers might be more interested in the policy now, because with the 2012 budget, local taxpayers are going to start seeing regional district and municipal tax dollars fleeing the area as the carbon tax starts to kick in. The regional district has earmarked approximately $25,000 towards the payment of carbon offsets due to predicted shortfalls in their quest for carbon neutrality in 2012 alone. The Village of Keremeos is still in the process of determining how much they will have to set aside for their predicted carbon neutrality shortfall. The issue was debated briefly at the

MP discusses federal politics of 2011 f A federal year in review – Part II By Alex Atamanenko, MP , BC Southern Interior As expressed in my last column, it has been difficult over the past year to work with the current federal Conservative majority government. Internationally, Canada has continued its obstructionist policies by withdrawing from the Kyoto Accord, taking no lead role to address climate change. Instead, our federal government has accused Canadians with environmental concerns over the mega Enbridge pipeline project and oil tankers of being part of “radical groups� and under “foreign� influence. At the same time, the Harper Conservatives and oil companies have lobbied the Americans to allow the completion of the Keystone pipeline to transport even more unprocessed bitumen from the Alberta tar sands. Canada has also continued its unbalanced support of Israel in the Middle East conflict, instead of working to broker a long-lasting peace. As well, the Conservatives are committed to spend billions on F-35 stealth bombers, without a transparent, competitive bidding process, and for the primary

purpose of first-strike capability, not protection of our sovereign territory. Under the new configuration of Parliament, when the vote comes, the Conservative majority has the final say, despite having only 29 per cent of the eligible vote in Canada. We need to change our antiquated system where such an elected government has an absolute majority to do whatever it pleases. (Look for the Conservatives to solidify their position even more in the coming years with federal electoral boundary changes). On top of this, we have a Senate stacked with the Prime Minister’s political appointees that rubber stamp anything he tells them to do; not great for the democratic process. It is my sincere hope that a fair system of proportional representation will continue to be one of the key elements of the federal NDP, and that our new leader will make it his/her priority. It would be a very healthy step in the development of our democracy to have a Parliament made up of a number of political parties that actually have to work together and reach compromises for the benefit of all Canadians. Let’s try to make this happen, and not give up hope! I would like to wish everyone all the best in 2012. I look forward to working with constituents to advance their issues.

Eva M. Wagenblast

Keremeos water reservoir project driven by provincial edicts

With Local Guests:

By Steve Arstad news@keremeosreview.com

By Steve Arstad news@keremeosreview.com The Keremeos reservoir project is not going away, in spite of the 2010 Alternate Approval Process petition that forced the Keremeos Irrigation District to abandon their tax request. More recently, the Regional District Okanagan - Similkameen approved a number of regional projects for gas tax funding. On the list is the Keremeos reservoir project, which will benefit from a $300,000 grant, if approved. The KID and local politicians have been perceived by some to be “ramming this project down people’s throats,” every time the subject comes up. For that reason, it is important that some of the facts behind this project be reviewed. Below is an excerpt from regional district

director’s notes explaining the application for grant funding for the Keremeos water reservoir The Keremeos water system currently supplies about 1,000 residential and commercial services and institutional land uses including schools, diagnostic centre, senior citizens housing; serving a population of about 3,200. The system continues to provide irrigation water but currently does not meet many basic standards for a municipal water system. The proposed reservoir project addresses water system reliability and fire protection deficiencies to avoid a situation where the water system could become an absolute constraint to growth. The reservoir would be a capital asset of the Village, but by agreement the operation of it would be the responsibility of the Keremeos Irrigation District.

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

Editorial

No time like the present to support the local team The Penticton Vees have just finished a phenominal regular season, setting a new national junior hockey record for the team with the most consecutive wins - 42 - prior to their defeat by the Prince George Spruce Kings in the final game of the season last weekend. Up to that point, the Vees had not suffered a loss since November 11 last year, winning 22 games on the road as well. It’s probably a fair statement to say that Penticton will not see a team like this one for many years to come. While the team’s performance has resulted in a banner year for attendance at the South Okanagan Events Centre, attendance still fell well below the capacity mark for most of the team’s home games. It makes one wonder what, if anything, it will take to fill the building - or even come close to it - on a regular basis. It’s unfortunate that many sports enthusiasts in this area are so willing to pay grossly inflated prices to watch NHL teams often play with less intensity and success than the Vees, only to miss the opportunity to support (at much more reasonable cost) what has been an excellent effort from a much deserving local team . As the playoffs get underway, here’s hoping the rink fills up. Go Vees go.

Cold climate on Planet BCTF By Tom Fletcher Black Press The stories began tumbling out as soon as last week’s column on teacher union indoctrination of students was posted on our websites. Most parents, retired teachers and administrators requested anonymity, because their kids and grandkids still have to go to school, or they have relatives or fair-weather friends in the B.C. Teachers’ Federation who mustn’t be enraged by any contradiction of their dogma. There was the Grade 3 art class in Langley where students were assigned to create anti-Bill 22 protest signs. There was the Grade 6 teacher in Greater Victoria who started a one-hour drill on BCTF talking points by telling students not to believe anything they see in the media. There was the middle school in the Gulf Islands that dismissed students early to force them all out in a show of solidarity against the latest of many legislated settlements.

And there were the BCTF-BCGEU pickets that blocked entrances to government offices here in Victoria, harassing, threatening and physically blocking office workers in an effort to force them to join the thousands bused in for the traditional howling show of strength for Big State Labour bosses on the legislature lawn. In my 20 years of criticizing the policies and tactics of teacher union radicals, I have had my office windows smashed twice. I have seen a mob of selfabsorbed strikers push a senior off the sidewalk into the snow. My daughter has been subjected to hard-left environmental propaganda in elementary school. I’ve never seen anything quite like this. But hey, let’s be constructive here. First, I should emphasize I understand that these incidents do not represent the vast majority of dedicated teachers, who wouldn’t think of intentionally abusing their position for personal or political gain. I mean that

sincerely. And thanks to all the teachers who sent me lecturing letters, particularly those who insist that they don’t really want another 16-per-cent raise, because their first priority is improving classroom resources. Volume doesn’t permit individual responses to everyone. Authors who begin along the lines of “Sir, you are an idiot” receive lower priority. If I don’t get back to you, please convey your willingness to accept a brief wage freeze to your union executive. They’ve scaled back some of their more egregious prep time and paid leave demands, but apparently your admirably altruistic message has not yet been absorbed. And yes, I’m aware that the Harvard study of class size and performance I mentioned last week examined charter schools in the United States. I understand that “charter school” is considered coarse language in B.C. As with health care, there must be no serious competitive dynamic or other dangerous experi-

mentation permitted within the unionized state monopoly model. And thanks for suggesting I’m an agent of the B.C. Liberals, who invented poverty 11 years ago. East Van MLA Jenny Kwan touched on it in the debate on Bill 22. Children coming to inner city schools hungry, inadequately clothed, with lice. Abused children. I can assure Kwan that these tragic realities are not confined to the hellish B.C. Liberal era of spending increases. Indeed, I witnessed all these things in my threeroom school in Tomslake, B.C. in the 1960s. Social Credit was to blame then. I remember the school more for its great teachers than its undrinkable water or alcoholic principal. And to all those who provide spelling-challenged advice on journalistic objectivity, here’s the thing. The first rule of opinion writing is to have one. I’m not looking for middle ground in the cold vacuum between Earth and Planet BCTF.

Laws that will fill our prisons is not the answer To the Editor: Recently, on “The Current” on CBC I heard an interview with Eric Sterling, the man who drafted the U.S. legislation for mandatory minimum sentences. He now feels that it leads to a great deal of injustice. He and two dozen criminal justice professionals are imploring the Harper government not to make the same mistakes. Robert Sampson was also interviewed. He was the Corrections Minister of Ontario under Mike Harris. He drafted a review for Stockwell Day and many of his recommendations are included in Bill C-10. His defense of the bill was disturbing to say the least. He made the incredible statement that prisoners weren’t getting a long enough sentence to become rehabilitated. The Harper government squawks about not getting legislation through as fast as they’d like it to and then they put nine or more bills together making one huge bill, and expect it to pass with hardly enough time to read it let alone discuss

it and its ramifications. I looked it up and scanned over it. It covers everything: incest, bestiality, criminal records, national defense, youth criminal justice, prisons and reformations, international transfers of offenders, human rights, immigration and refugee protection, terrorism - (to quote the bill – “hundreds of Canadians have been murdered or injured in terrorist attacks” and “the purpose of the Act is to deter terrorism by allowing the victims to sue the perpetrators” (yep, that’ll do it)., and drugs. Again to quote, “The amount of the substance means the entire amount…..or the whole of any plant that contains a detectable amount of the substance.” The sentence? Imprisonment for a term of six months if the number of plants produced is more than five. This bill will be law in a short time. This and Bill C-30, the internet spy bill as it’s being called, and we’ve got Big Brother right here in our midst. Donna Stocker, Cawston

Canada’s submarine program is one big expensive joke To the Editor: I just finished reading, with a smile on my face, about Canada’s answer to the American comedy McHales Navy . The saga of the “Glitchy” obsolete garage sale British Submarine rust buckets has resurfaced in the bowels of the Penticton Herald February 28, 2012. An update from the lips of Vice - Admiral Paul Maddison, head of the Royal Canadian Navy suggests, Canada has no combat ready submarines, almost 15 years after they were purchased. - say what ! Gad - I hate to say it again but about 15 years ago I sent a letter to my local newspaper suggesting Sanford and Son would not allow that kind of embarrassment in their junk yard. A baby sardine swimming by one of these

rusty relics asked her mummy “What in the sea is that?” Her mummy replied, “Those are people in a can, dear.” What chance would this antiquated junk have against the elite technology and power of a Nuclear Red October, other than being the laughing stock of the seven seas. I would have more faith if Vice-Admiral Maddison and Defense Minister (Pop- Gun) Peter MacKay if they could show good faith by being submerged when the first obsolete torpedo is tested and fired- I bet that ain’t gonna happen. Perhaps by the year 2030 or sooner - the entire pile of sub-service junk can be home for the sardines whom reside down under with Davey Jones and are familiar with afterlife in a can.

Unsettling labour issues need to be discussed openly, honestly Recently I watched an awful scene in Cawston. I was dropping the woman I love off at work at Cawston Cold Storage and it seems that because the night before some of the staff had a fact finding meeting with a representative from a union, they were met with what I felt were obscenities and threats. Those “in” with the management blocked the doors where workers had to punch their timecards. It looked like something out of Alabama in the fifties - in my view, loud thugs who were taunting their own co-workers. Many of the workers who attended that meeting had returned, year after year, to an exceptionally taxing job because they’d committed the worst of all sins - they needed the work. They weren’t acting out of vengeance, there was no middle finger pointed proudly in the air, they just wanted some respect and perhaps a fair shake. In all reality, they wanted to make the company more efficient and more productive. So far, they’d only asked questions. It’s not as if their employers hadn’t profited from their efforts; I believe that is apparent,

look at the soon to be completed storage facilities. Look at their life-styles - look at the trucks they drive. What I perceived, (ironically enough, being anti-bullying day), was bullying. Sadly, as we see in playgrounds, bullying still exists as a perceived trump card everywhere for those without the tools to communicate in a civilized manner. I’m not an employee there, I have no rights at all when it comes to what they do as a company, but I do have a right as a husband to stand behind my partner when I feel she’s being threatened and intimidated. I’d like to publicly call out the team that runs that plant - have open and honest meetings, stop hiding behind your power, and talk to the staff that generates your incomes. It’s a long term solution and it doesn’t involve thuggery. What I witnessed was dangerous - it was a defensive, confused response to an unknown threat. It was shocking to see in what I thought to be the modern age. Peter Kidder, Keremeos

More political rhetoric in B.C. than one should have to endure To the Editor: After forcing myself to view the Liberal Falcon budget being delivered by Finance Minister Kevin on T.V - I must admit I have little idea on how to sort out such mumble jumble. I believe a person would find more of what’s new in the old antique store. I believe the proposed site “C” dam could be

glued together with all that budget paper mixed with tonnes of rika -bunksha which is found in bull pens around the world. The only problem is there aren’t enough fingers in B.C. to plug all the holes in the Falcon dam to hold back the water tainted with rikabunksha and Liberal hyperbole. Ted Azyan, Osoyoos

Silver prospect gets drilling permit Permit granted after province says no to national park proposal By Steve Arstad news@keremeosreview.com Silverfields Resources President Chris England, recently announced that the Ministry of Energy and Mines has granted a Mines Act permit which authorizes exploration activities on the Company’s Keremeos Silver Project, located on Mount Richter, between Keremeos and Osoyoos in the Similkameen Mining District of British Columbia. The property consists of 15 mineral claim tenures, encompassing 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 Fields’ project geologist. Mr. Folk is also a qualified person as defined by National Instrument 43-101. Trenching and drilling will focus on several new mineralized areas discovered in the 2011 exploration season, namely the “Cow Trail Vein” (3.67 g/t gold, 1625 g/t silver); the “ Silver Fields Vein” (5.69 g/t gold, 956 g/t silver); and the “Tire Line Vein” ( 54.10 g/t gold). 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 Okanagan - Similkameen, an announcement that was followed by a similar statement issued on the Parks Canada website.

Kaleden drug bust Members of the Penticton RCMP Drug Task Force executed a search warrant on a White Lake Road residence in Kaleden on March 7, uncovering a large scale marijuana grow op in a bunker underneath a garage on the property. Police seized 298 marijuana plants along with growing equipment. Two males, including the property owner, were arrested at the scene without incident. The two men were known to police. They were released with a promise to appear in court May 9. Police are recommending charges of production of a controlled substance and possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking to be laid on both men.

Keremeos VFD stats for January, February Light duty to start of 2012 Contributed by Jordy Bosscha, KVFD Chief and Public Relations Officer Keremeos Volunteer Fire Department responded to the following incidents in January and February 2012 January - Two motor vehicle incidents - One gas leak / spill - One public assist / rescue - Two alarm activations February -One motor vehicle incident -One false alarm -One investigation The Keremeos Volunteer Fire Department would like to inform business owners that we are once again partnering with Community Safety Net, who utilize the “Fire Safety - Smart Choices for LIFE” pamphlets to educate and protect our young people. These booklets are for grade two and three students at Cawston Primary School and are full of fire and life safety information. We find that the “Fire Safety” book and DVD provide our youth with essential tools to prevent fires and be prepared. They also show parents how to be proactive in keeping their home and children fire-safe. These booklets are handed to students during fire prevention week in October. The Community Safety Net “Fire Safety” materials are funded by local business and community partners. We have also received some complaints that the Canadian Association of Fire Chiefs (CAFC) is telemarketing for donations in our area. None of the donations made to the CAFC will be paid to any local fire department directly – all funds go to the CAFC and their telemarketer. The CAFC has confirmed that they are in the B.C. market place and will continue until September 2012. The CAFC is a worthy organization, but if you want to make a donation to a local organization, it is best to do so at the local level.

Contributed Excitement is growing for the BC Summer Games and District Playdowns. The reality of the BC Summer Games are becoming true for three local softball players. Sydney Crow, Alana Leask and Bailey Vesper, all have been named on the Zone 2 U14 girls softball team. Five local grade 7 girls tried out against 60 grade 7 and 8 girls from Kamloops down to Cawston. All five girls, including Kisa Minshull and Taylor Thompson made the cuts to the top 20 girls. These girls all worked very hard on their skills all winter and their coaches and families are very proud of each girl. The Summer Games will be this July in Surrey. All these girls play on the local Kobau Koyotes U14 softball team and are excited to be hosting the U14 District playdowns on June 16 and 17 at Kobau Park. These playdowns decide which two teams will attend the provincial playdowns in July. Last year the team finished 4th / 16 teams in the U12 division. Many volunteers will be needed in the community to help out with the district playdowns. So, if you love ball and want to help out in any way, ( raking, selling tickets, consession, etc ) please call Vespers at 499-5709.

Meeting participants comment at CPAWS presentation Questions and comments add to discussion over national park benefits during recent CPAWS presentation in Keremeos By Steve Arstad news@keremeosreview.com Numerous questions were raised during the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society (CPAWS) presentation in Keremeos on Feb. 23, several of which questioned the validity of the economic benefits outlined. One resident noted that, based on the economic projections, there would be a huge influx of people into the valley. Some debate ensued over the pros and cons of increased traffic in the region, with O’Loughlin suggesting that any changes to the Similkameen would depend on what local citizens wanted. Another comment indicated that the economic data was unfair, because the protected areas of the region had been left in limbo for the nine years in which the park debate had been taking place. O’Loughlin pointed out that B.C. had the lowest funding for a provincial park system in Canada. It was also suggested that it was a “gross error” to say that the southern grasslands area (Kobau Mountain region) wasn’t a prime hunting area for local enthusiasts. “We can’t access Chopaka anymore,” said an audience member. “The southern grasslands provide better hunting than Snowy, which is a 12 mile hike.” The validity of the three polls taken on the national park was also questioned. It was suggested that the polls involving urban areas like Penticton accounted for most of the pro park results. “What is a park going to do to draw people here that this area doesn’t have now?” was another query, which O’Loughlin answered by saying that European tourists were attracted to national parks and sought them out during their travels. O’Loughlin assured those present that she would not advocate a national park if it hurt

ranching in the area, adding that one land manager was better than multiples. “How can you not destroy a ranch if you take away the grazing area?” asked an audience member. O’Loughlin said that ranchers were discussing a “new model.” “New legislation could be drafted,” she said, saying that Parks Canada was interested in developing a national park that would work in this community. “You really can’t divide a ranch. I disagree with most of what you’ve said... Parks Canada is no further ahead with this now than eight years ago - there is no negotiation now.” One audience member prodded O’Loughlin about the visitor spending prediction of 49 million per year. “How many people will that bring in? How can you use those numbers?” he insisted. An audience member observed that “Change is happening - you can deal with it, organize how it happens or let happen,” she said. “This has the potential to be good for the community.” “The province has said the park issue is dead - where will CPAWS be next year to stop encroachment into these areas?” asked another audience member, to which O’Loughlin admitted that her organization was committed to seeing the establishment of a park in the area. “We view protected areas as not being good enough. We are fully committed to seeing this national park occur,” she said. As the meeting wound down, RDOS Area “B” Director George Bush observed that “People don’t want to see land subdivided. I don’t agree with lots of the information you brought forward. I appreciate your passion - but the loss of ranching, and the agriculture industry shouldn’t suffer for it.” O’Loughlin admitted that “no parkers” had done a good job of speaking up, offering an anecdote regarding a tourist who she had heard of walking into a local business to ask where he could find this “no park.” The meeting concluded with the comment from one audience member who said, “ I’m not against a park - the people around here should be asked - they should be the deciding factor and no one else.”

news Strong, gusty winds create some wild wave and spray patterns on Okanagan Lake during one of several recent windstorms that have swept through the region. Temperatures are expected to stay slightly below normal for the next few days, with a mixed bag of precipitation forecast, unlike most of eastern Canada, which has been enjoying temperatures much higher than normal than is usual for this time of year. Our temperatures could begin to moderate in time for the final week of the month.

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

BCTF CLAIMS AND DEMANDS

FACT

The union wants more paid time outside the classroom – 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 qualifications 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 – ‘one strike and you’re out’.

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.

It’s time to focus on what matters most in education – BC’s students. That’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 BC’s education system even better. It’s the driving force behind BC’s Education Plan that teachers, parents and students are helping to shape. Teachers care about their students. Parents care about their children’s future.

Celebrating the past: 25 years of progress Preparations continue for 25th anniversary celebration as Rick Hansen returns to Keremeos Contributed Twenty-five years ago Rick Hansen had a dream - to make the world more accessible and inclusive and to find a cure for spinal cord injury (SCI). Inspired by a deep-seated belief that anything is possible, Rick’s dream took shape in the form of the Man In Motion World Tour (MIMWT). For 26 months he and his team wheeled over 40,000 kilometres through 34 countries, raising awareness of the potential of people with disabilities. The completion of this epic Tour was a testament to willpower, physical prowess and the ability to lead a seemingly impossible campaign. It was the beginning of a lifelong and selfless journey to make a positive difference in the lives of others. Twenty-five years later, Keremeos is proud to be, once again, part of the

Rick Hansen Relay. Keremeos and District took part in Rick Hansen’s Man in Motion World Tour (MIMWT) and in 1982, our community raised $6,292. Over the past 25 years the Rick Hansen Foundation has raised more than $250 million to accelerate progress towards a cure for SCI and a more accessible and inclusive world. The Rick Hansen 25th Anniversary Relay will re-trace the Canadian segment of the original Man In Motion World Tour. Starting in Newfoundland and travelling westward to British Columbia, the nine-month relay will cover 12,000 kilometres, and visit over 600 communities from coast to coast in every province and territory. With over 7,000 participants, this exciting and inspiring journey will celebrate and showcase Canadians who are the pride of their communities, recognizing everyday heroes, including youth, who are making a difference in the lives of others and who motivate us all to better our country and our world. The 25th Anniversary of the Man in Motion tour has moved from an individual man to “Many in Motion�

will be coming through Keremeos on May 9. Local medal-bearers will travel Rick’s former route to raise awareness of the potential of people with disabilities. On May 9, they will leave Osoyoos in the morning, stop for lunch and celebration in Keremeos and finishing the day in Princeton. A Community Fundraising Lunch will be provided by our local chapter of the Order of the Royal Purple as a fundraiser. A celebration will be held at the Memorial Park to acknowledge the work of local organizations, and individuals. Over the next two months leading up to the Medal Relay, the Review will publish more information on accessibility, and local individuals and organizations that are making a difference in our community. For more information on the Rick Hansen 25th Anniversary Relay visit rickhansenrelay.com or contact our local Planning Committee through Colleen Christensen at Similkameen Country at: 250-499-5225 email: siminfo@nethop.net

Tony Dawson’s adventures in Tanzania continue New posts on Tony’s Big Adventure Contributed This week, Tony made contact with the World Food Programme – his coordinator is Dominique – and he is probably in Arusha at this moment becoming familiar with the direction his life will take over the next eleven months or so. He is doing fine. He seems to have met several wonderful Philippinos (yes, including Lennie!) that has made him determine that he would “go to the Philippines in a shot!� In the meantime he has spent time touring the neighbourhood around his hotel in “Dar.� He writes, “I braved a walk in the neighbourhood today. I got lost. I got found. I tried again and didn’t get lost. I took street photos and I sat down and just looked about me for a long while, actually enjoying the hustle and bustle from a quiet perch on the sidewalk offset from the road. I had a cup of chai and some samosas to celebrate finding my way. I survived the odd hustler by saying ‘Hapana sana’ – I doubt these two Kiswalili words really go together but people got the message. The taxi drivers always ask you if you’d like their service but when I said ‘hapana sana’ they smiled and understood my politese. One ‘meter reader’ harassed me for taking a photo of the skyline with not a single person in the photo. He was trying to get money from me but I defended myself with the line that Canadians would like to see these photos – that they needed to see them so as to have a better understanding of how fine a place Dar actually is...� Therefore, since Tony “found� himself, he took more walks: “I am learning to walk as though I have a purpose even when I’m totally baffled - appearance is everything. I don’t look directly at people as

much in order to avoid hustlers. I begin to understand why some women will cover themselves to reduce the prying eyes and flirtations of the young men. People are slim and gracious and very tidily dressed. There is a real bustle to the streets that makes perfect sense to everyone bustling and contributes to my sense of the exotic.� Tony also wrote, “I wended my way back to Peter’s cheap bar . . . [and asks] . . . the two men at the table next to mine how to pronounce the word ‘mwenyeji’ (a ‘native inhabitant’). [This provided] . . . an excuse for me to practice or just plain talk with others. It turned out they were from the Democratic Republic of the Congo, to the west of Tanzania, and they spoke French! We had a nice cold beer (I know it was only 2 p.m. but it was hot on my walkabout and obviously on theirs, too.) and spoke French. Hubert said he would hire me if I were to volunteer in the Congo because he thought my French more than adequate. He gave me his card and said if I visited, he’d pick me up at the airport and find me a cheap hotel. Nice to have people like Peter (VSO Kenya) and Hubert to guide [me]. Hubert’s card reads ‘Official Representative JAC Motors in Katanga/DRC’ where he is the ‘Administrator Commercial Manager’. He’d just come back from Europe on business (where Hubert said it was) very cold and very hot here in Dar – hotter than the Congo.� Arusha – No Pens – No hamburgers / Posted on March 10, 2012 Tony has arrived in Arusha. He says he has a “positive� impression – sorta like when he kisses his sister (sorry Diana!) He says, “ . . . it is a tourist destination . . . safari tours abound.� Tony’s idea of tourism is hiking in the outback without a map on a “discovery� trip and safaris he will enjoy as he goes from farm to farm. Regardless, Tony is enjoying summer in east central Afrika

beneath Mt. Meru that he thinks was a volcano – maybe a miniature Mt. Kilimanjaro which he describes this way: “Flying in I saw a great plain, that is, an immense plateau dotted with trees, dry looking. Rising from this was Mount Kilimanjaro with a mass of snow on the top and all down the sides, followed by a ring of white clouds and ending on the plain. Imposing. Beautiful.� Tony is replacing Toshi who hails from Japan. “When Toshi looks at people in the streets he compares them to Japanese so they look bigger and heavier but when I look I see broad shouldered, slim wasted, and flat bellied.� Toshi is Tony’s guide and mentor for the next couple of weeks as Tony becomes familiar with Arusha, the World Food Programme (WFP) and writing without a pen! Yes, there were no pens in the WFP offices. Tony is beginning to realize that the world is a technological place – including Tanzania! Tony is quite comfortable doing his own business accounting on the backs of old envelopes (God help the poor sod the federal government sends to audit Tony’s “books�!) but he says now “I realize that most business is conducted on the cell phone and via email with information literally whizzing hell bent non-stop.� Welcome to the 21st Century in Afrika, Tony! Back to Toshi and Arusha: “There are . . . street vendors selling fresh fruit and vegetables. You can walk down leafy streets; you can walk down bare streets. There are clean areas and there are littered areas. People seem busy. Toshi took me to his favourite Saturday morning haunts: Breakfast spots and coffee spots and bookstores.� Meanwhile Toshi and Tony are living in a pink motel/hotel owned and operated by a woman – “One sharp business continued on page 20

Cosmic mechanics explain motion of heavenly bodies When I arrived home from the gym this evening the full Moon shone in the eastern sky, quite close to the planet Mars, shining bright and orange-red. In the west were Venus and Jupiter, Venus brilliant and white, Jupiter a bit fainter and yellowish. The sight was fascinating for two reasons. Firstly, against the clear, blue-black sky, it was a beautiful spectacle. Secondly, that precise arrangement could be predicted, even years ago, using cheap or free software. Our ancestors did it by hand. Our ancestors thought things out pretty well the same way as we do today. They saw things happening around them and tried to find explanations that seemed logical, at least at the time. One thing that was very obvious is that things on the ground were hard to predict. The weather still cannot be forecast accurately, and there were always floods, plagues and crop failures that seemed to turn up out of nowhere. The rhythm of the heavens was obvious. Planetary arrangements and

eclipses could be routinely predicted. It was widely believed that things were chaotic down here and perfect “up there.” For us at ground level, it was patently obvious that things like barrels, carts, logs and so on moved because we or draught animals pulled or pushed them, and when we stopped pulling or pushing, the things stopped moving. Carts kept moving as long as the animals kept pulling, and sailing ships sailed as long as there was a wind or someone rowed. Those ideas encountered problems in the sky, because we could not see anything pulling the celestial bodies, but they maintained their precise rhythm, punctuated occasionally by a comet. This suggested either the heavens were fundamentally different, or that things were being moved by some sort of metaphysical agency. We have Isaac Newton to thank for getting us out of the hole. He proposed something completely different. Objects sit still or continue in motion unless a force acts on them, like friction. He also introduced the concept of gravity. He then expressed these ideas mathematically, which made possible a physical foundation for astronomy. Things stop moving on the ground because of friction and the need to push stuff out of the way as they move. In space there is almost nothing to push out of the way, so things continue in their orbits for billions of

years. Once we got the calculations down pat, we could search for small deviations in the paths of objects and deduce their causes. The planet Neptune was discovered by calculating the position and mass of the body needed to explain perturbations in the orbit of Uranus. More recently, Dark Matter was postulated to explain the motion of stars in galaxies, and Dark Energy to explain the accelerating expansion of the universe. All this is thanks to Isaac Newton, who, although not the nicest man in history, must certainly be one of the smartest. Mercury, Venus and Jupiter lie in the west after sunset. Mercury is close to the horizon and hard to see. The other two are easy to spot. Venus is the bright one. Mars is in the east, and Saturn rises about 9 p.m. The Moon will reach last quarter on the 14th. Ken Tapping is an astronomer with the National Research Council’s Herzberg Institute of Astrophysics, and is based at the Dominion Radio Astrophysical Observatory, Penticton.

health M a n a g i n g w om e n ’s h e a lt h n at u r a l ly By Dr. Tamara Browne, Penticton, BC - PART II

What is Menopause, what causes it, is it a disorder or a natural period of transition? The cycle of a woman’s life changes at menopause. Gone are the monthly menstrual tasks, child-rearing (usually), and all of the other duties which may well nourish a woman in her busy years, but which can be joyously let go by enlightened post-menopausal women. Personally I can’t wait to get there! I guess what I am trying to get across is attitude. We can look at this time in our lives as a loss, a decline in function, a deterioration. Or, with a bit of a paradigm change, we can see it for what it truly is... a wonderful time of self-discovery and new adventures. Physiology of Menopause; What we do know about the science The two master hormones which drive the menstrual cycle are LH (luteinizing hormone) and FSH (follicular stimulating hormone). FSH drives the ovary to make estrogen, promotes maturation of the follicle (egg), and sensitizes the follicle receptors to LH. LH rises a day or two prior to ovulation, stimulates release of the egg from the follicle (ovulation), and then declines dramatically. FSH and LH are controlled by a hormone produced by the hypothalamus called gonadotropin releasing hormone (GnRH). The hypothalamus is controlled by a myriad of biochemical, hormonal, immunological, and emotional mechanisms which all work towards creating the delicate hormone balance which is so critical to female health. This balance can easily be disturbed by environmental stressors, physical and emotional stressors, and artificial hormone intake. The most likely cause of hormonal imbalance is xenoestrogen or synthetic estrogen exposure. Xenoestrogens are environmental compounds (usually petrochemical) that can have a potent estrogen-like activity making them very toxic. Menopause as a “disease” is largely a result of lack of attention to this delicate hormone balance in the years leading up to menopause. The medical establishment has contributed to this problem by not fully understanding the mechanisms of this balance as well as by becoming over zealous with the pharmaceutical approach to treating menopause. By focusing too much on “curing” problems with pills and too little on the healing power of the mind, emotions, and biochemistry of the body, our medical establishment has inadvertently failed women in menopausal j management. Part of this failure centers in removing power from women and placing it in the hands of doctors. Women by enlarge have not been provided with the information to make wise choices concerning their health and well-being. They have been provided only with a single approach to diminishing their symptoms: an approach, which it turns out, was not originally well founded or researched and has been found to be dangerous, but which continues to prevail. This really makes no sense. Menopause as a “disease” is largely a western phenomenon. In more agrarian, non-industrialized cultures, menopause usually passes with little discomfort. The reasons seem to be multi-factorial; nutrition, diet, chemical contamination of the environment, stress, and possibly the difference in feminine values across cultures. Today women have no choice but to become self-educated.

TUNES UP OUR IMMUNE SYSTEM

Did you know that 40% of the time we don’t get the colds we are exposed to? We do have a bit of immunity to these viruses. When we do get a cold, it tunes up our immune system and makes it stronger to fend off a future cold.

POISON AWARENESS IN THE HOME

This is the time of year we focus on poison awareness in the home. With our aging population, more people are taking five or more medications. This is one of the reasons why the incidence of child poisoning is going up. Store your medications in a place where curious children can’t reach them.

DO YOU GET ENOUGH FIBRE

Evidently, we Canadians don’t eat enough fibre. Because adequate fibre has positive effects on heart disease, diabetes and some forms of cancer, it’s important to get enough. Men aged 19 - 50 need 38 grams per day. Older men need at least 30 grams. Women ages 19 - 50 need at least 25 grams per day while older women need at least 21 grams. Read those food labels to see how much you are getting.

DRY MOUTH

We make from 750 ml to 1500 ml of saliva each day. You really wonder how we can ever have a dry mouth. Dry mouth can be caused by some medications. In fact, dry mouth (medically called “xerostomia”) is one of the more common side effects of medications. If this is a problem for you, check with our pharmacists. We may be able to help alleviate the situation for you. All drugs have side effects but the user does not experience most of them. If it’s important to your quality of life, we’ll tell you about it. It’s one of our roles as your professional pharmacist.

news Last glimpse of Slack Alice’s and Bubblee’s Beer and Wine Store: Ken Helm of Cawston took this photo of the heritage building prior to its final demolition after fire destroyed the three business complex in February. The loss of Slack’s has added to what was an already steady decline in bar and nightclub businesses in Penticton’s downtown core.

The first night of the meeting was a chance to meet other members from as far as Lillooet, Merritt and Bralorne who had not been at the January meeting. We had a presentation from a past CBC Radio reporter who talked about communication strategies and recommended ways for the group to improve its dialogue with both public and government officials. The second day was devoted to reviewing grant applications, debriefing the earlier workshop, and brainstorming about the most effective ways to work with the province to ensure that the “slow-moving natural disasterâ€? of beetle kill does not completely decimate rural British Columbia. If you are interested in following the work of this organization, check the regularly updated website listed above for its “Beetle Bitesâ€? newsletters. • RCMP and fire dispatch visits in Kelowna Because I was already in Kelowna, and unable to attend a regularly scheduled tour of the RCMP and Fire Dispatch centers scheduled for later in the week, I made arrangements to tour these facilities on my own.

Graham Gore, Chief Terry McFarlane, Driver Angelique Wood and Russ Stoney of the Hedley Volunteer Fire Department practice on a Saturday morning in February, 2012. while working with very highstress circumstances of accidents, injuries, crime and fire. While the staff at the dispatch centers showed me their computerized systems, we discussed various problems along Highway #3 due to irregularities in the numbering system, as well as poor signage and high accident locations, often due to out-of-towners driving in a menacing way in semi-residential areas. I have put together a simple map for dispatch, and worked with them to come up with some easily implemented strategies to enable faster response times in emergency situations. I am also working with the Ministry of Transportation to address a number of issues respecting signage which impact public safety. As these strategies become a part of the daily routine for dispatch, we will work toward my campaign promise to improve our emergency services by creating a more integrated system. • Highway numbering irregularities Long time Similkameen residents probably already know there is “something funny” about the numbering along Highway #3, especially close to the town of Hedley. Numbers travelling east from Princeton are by kilometer, so that an address 10km from Princeton is 1000 Highway #3. This makes sense. Alternatively, the numbers travelling west from Keremeos also increase in size, but they are not measured from Keremeos. These highway addresses are sequential, as one would expect; however, as a traveler passes Hedley going west, the numbers continue to rise to 6247 Highway #3 until they reach the Stirling Creek Bridge. Here is where it “gets funny”. At the bridge, the addresses change direction, and a traveler will be confronted with addresses numbering in the 3000’s. So a driver coming from Princeton would be rightfully confused if they noticed addresses around Stirling Creek Ranch were around

3500 and then they travelled less than a kilometer and found addresses in the 6200 range. There is no indication that the bridge is where the “switch” occurs. This is an issue for new RCMP, rookie ambulance drivers, and an everchanging volunteer rescue force out of all our highway communities, from Keremeos to Hedley to Princeton. You residents can do your part to help us find you by specifying “east” or “west” of Hedley. Remember that Dispatch is in Kelowna and they are not familiar with this stretch of highway. Also remember that Highway #3 is a long highway, with recurring instances of the same number. There are probably as many as fifteen locations numbered “3000 Highway #3” between here and the Crow’s Nest Pass. • Fortis KORP Fortis has begun its Environmental Assessment process with both the provincial and federal government. A working group has been established with an eye to representation by all the stakeholders in the region affected by this proposed natural gas pipeline. Once the government is satisfied that all of the stakeholders identified by the proposed project outline have been considered, the pipeline could be underway within a year’s time. Detailed maps and information packages have been left at the OAPO hall in Hedley for the month of March. Details on a Keremeos location TBA. • SILGA The Southern Interior Local Government Association is holding its AGM in Revelstoke from April 26-28. This organization works to promote the needs of the citizens throughout the Southern Interior, which differ from the needs of the citizens of the Lower Mainland, at the Conference held in September by the Union of British Columbia Municipalities. These conferences are where ordinary people representing you come together and work out strategies for approaching our provincial leaders about the things you have told us matter.

MANAGING Your Money

Estate planning strategies – the basics and beyond None of us likes to think about our end of days but we should if we want our legacy to be passed on as we wish, to ensure our family is protected, and to limit the taxes levied against our estate. That’s why estate planning is so important. The basics • A Will is the foundation of any estate plan. It designates how your estate should be distributed. If you die without a Will (i.e. intestate), provincial legislation will determine how your estate is distributed amongst your heirs. • A Living Will provides direction for your care in the event of catastrophic illness or disability. • An Enduring Power of Attorney (also called a Mandate in case of Incapacity in Québec) provides direction for how your property will be managed in the event of incapacity. • An Executor (sometimes called a Personal Representative or in Québec, a liquidator) is the person named in your Will to settle your estate according to your documented wishes. • A Guardian should be named in your will to take care of your children during their minority. • Liquid Assets are important to pay for taxes, debts, the costs of settling your estate and/or other obligations. If you do not anticipate that your estate will have sufficient liquid assets, consideration should be given to purchasing insurance. • Funeral Services can be prearranged to save your estate some money, avoid extra stress on your survivors, and ensure the service is according to your wishes. • Financial Assets should be comprehensively listed in your records -- and be sure your Executor and/or survivors know where to find them. Beyond the basics • Probate or not? Probate is the process by which your Will is validated by a court with fees paid to your provincial government usually calculated on the net fair market value of the assets in your estate. Although reducing probate fees may be desirable, avoiding probate through the use of strategies such as beneficiary designations and joint ownership can lead to problems if some beneficiaries receive more of the estate than others. These comments are based on the probate process outside of Québec, since the probate process is different in that province.

• Set up a Trust? A Trust specifies a trustee who will manage the assets so long as the assets are held by the trust. Although it is possible to set up a trust during your lifetime, most people set up trusts in their will. A trust set up in your will is known as a testamentary trust, and it can serve several purposes, including maintaining control over the assets until certain beneficiaries are mature enough to manage them, and providing certain tax benefits to high income beneficiaries.. Your personal estate planning strategies depend on your financial situation and the rules in your province. Your professional advisor and lawyer can help ensure your legacy is left as you wish while limiting probate costs and taxes.

Wilf Miller has another tale to tell Well known Keremeos resident Wilf Miller tells a story about his first encounter with an automobile Contributed by Wilf Miller Well, sir, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve gone and done it. Nancy says we should buy one of them automobilious wagons everyone is getting. Well, sir, when they delivered it home at the farm I got out the book of rules and the more I read the less I knew about the innards of that machine. Then Jim Lawson came over and he says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re supposed to turn that crank in front to make it go.â&#x20AC;? Well, I turned that darn old crank until my eyes bugged out and it wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go. So I set down in the yard to think it over

and Nancy says the language I was using was just shameful. Then Jim Lawson came over and he says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I should put this thing in somewhere.â&#x20AC;? We found where it went and I turned the crank and that machine began to race and snort. It ran over Hank Weevers dog, tore a hole through Clyde Willisesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; picket fence and then started off down through the pasture and killed four sheep and a calf, and then ran into a hay stack and blowed up. Well, sir, all I got out of that joy ride was a broken leg, some rubber tires, six lawsuits and a mortgage on the farm. Nancy says if we ever own another one weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll get a real chauffeur to run it. I ainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t saying much but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got lingering suspicions that all my joy riding will be done in an old buckboard.

Good things come in small packages By Lorie Chortyk Paw Prints Last year, a friend “gifted” me a furry little hamster that her downstairs tenants had left behind when they moved. While I wasn’t really looking to add to my menagerie of pets, Homer was clearly in need of a new guardian and he now happily makes his home in a spacious aquarium in my office at the BC SPCA. Like Homer, hundreds of hamsters, guinea pigs, rabbits and other small animals are surrendered to the SPCA and are in need of loving homes. Each year the BC SPCA designates March as Small Animal Month to draw attention to these wonderful pint-sized pets available for adoption at shelters across the province. Small animals are often overlooked, perhaps because people don’t see them as “real” pets. But rabbits, guinea pigs, gerbils, rats and hamsters come with delightful and inquisitive personalities, fascinating behaviours and the

ability to enrich our lives. While Homer’s nocturnal habits make him a quiet and unassuming office-mate, he regularly rouses himself from sleep to greet colleagues or visitors who pop by – in the hopes they may have brought along a hamster treat or two. He also has very particular home design ideas and spends hours rearranging the tubes, toys and treats I put into his habitat to get the look “just right”. Small animals are great for people who have pet restrictions where they live. They don’t take up a lot of space or make much noise. But small animals do have unique care needs and, as with cats and dogs, people should familiarize themselves with the animal’s characteristics to ensure a suitable match. So, before you head out to a BC SPCA shelter to adopt, check out our pet care pages first to learn what you need to do to keep your potential pet happy and healthy. Then, should you feel ready to bring a small animal (or two!) into your life, check our adoption listings (spca.bc.ca) or stop by a shelter to find one just right for you.

Tony’s Big Adventure / continued from page 13 woman. Nice too. But there’s a game to be played, the bargaining one.” The bargaining game began when WFP staff took Tony to look for another place to hang his hat . . . . very quickly the owner was on the phone saying she will, after all, rent the unit for only 600,000 shillings per month ($300) since Tony is a volunteer and she is a nice woman! So Tony stays 15 minutes from work and 15 minutes from downtown. Tony has a one room unit with a kitchen area and a bathroom. “Home” is a little constricting but now Tony knows why Toshi goes “downtown” on the weekends and particularly since they “are not to be out at night . . . so it is important to get out during the day.” Tony is looking forward to a quick visit from Scott and Nancy (who will be on safari) as they stop briefly in Arusha. The neat thing that Tony discovered is a long line of “cafes and wee shops . . . directly across from the hotel (where

Scott and Nancy are staying), where I braved lunch for 2,000 shillings or $1.20. (Lunch was a) standard fare of rice, beans and spinach. I felt proud to have negotiated this transaction. It is generally a place no tourist would go but I have been to a couple with Toshi and Abel the driver and felt capable. Hamburgers you do not get there. It is a matter of learning and adjusting and accepting and not being unnecessarily squeamish. Most Tanzanians would eat at these wee places. Perhaps it is like going to the Main in Montreal and eating steamées or Vancouver’s East side where I used to go to ‘The Only Seafood Restaurant’ (it is no longer, alas) that had really excellent oyster stew that could not be beat.” “The children are a delight. Off they go to school in their uniforms. Some try a shy ‘Hi’ and laugh at my ‘habari’.”
