Similkameen valley tourism strategy in the works Group would like to make Similkameen a tourist region of its own By Dave Cursons Tourism Planning Workshop Getting them to come and getting them to stay awhile - even spend some money was the focus of a March 14 Tourism Planning Council workshop funded through BC Ministry of Jobs, Tourism and Innovation. The Similkameen Valley Planning Society through its Tourism Advisory Committee assembled 40 stakeholders at the Snaza’ist Discovery Centre in Hedley on Wednesday, March 14. Steve Nicol of Lions Gate Consulting facilitated the day long event. Discussion went to the distribution of a whole valley tourism charicature map of the type published with area artist , Larry Hunter. One group went into the matter of co-

operative scheduling and mutual promotion of separate events in all valley communities. The technique called SEO or “search engine optimization” came up . SEO would make current Similkameen Tourism information top of the list whenever the valley is “googled” anywhere. The term “highway corridor aesthetic” came up in discussion. HCA is about communities affected by things like derelict vehicles and a hodge-podge of road signage. On point to develop a Community Tourism Foundation in the Similkameen is The Similkameen Valley Planning Society. SVPS is a not-forprofit organization composed of seven governing bodies

from Keremeos and Princeton: Municipalities of Keremeos and Princeton, Regional District OkanaganSimilkameen Electoral Areas of “B,” “G,” and “H,” and the Indian Bands of Lower Similkameen and Upper Similkameen. Although not a lawmaking body, SVPS offers a continuing organizational hub for cooperative efforts in the Similkameen Valley. The workshop was funded by BC Tourism. Pat Bell, MLA for Prince GeorgeMcKenzie heads The BC Ministy of Jobs, Tourism and Innovation. T h e m i n i s t r y ’s Community Tourism Foundations Program helps develop a full and long-range tourism plan with a range of tools, proven resources and advanced

The program endeavors to meet the needs of communities, like The Similkameen, in various stages of tourism development. Community Tourism Foundations have

already sprung up in Vancouver Island, Lower Mainland. The North and in The Interior. Last Wednesdays workshop in Hedley is seen as an early and major step forward

for the SVPS Tourism Planning Council, established this past January. “The economic benefit of tourism dollars to the valley is substantial”, says SVPS Chair, Brad Hope.

“The longer term strategy would attract more visitors to the valley. Branding our existing attractions, lifestyle and the beauty of the valley is a key objective”, said Hope.

Highway 97 passing lanes await funding Design work and property acquisition underway for proposed passing lanes between Oliver and Okanagan Falls By Steve Arstad news@keremeosreview.com Senior Project Manager for the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure, Rampaul Dulay, spoke to the regional district Environment and Infrastructure Committee about plans for a passing lane on Highway 97 near McIntyre Bluff at the March 15 RDOS board meeting. Dulay told the committee that recent growth in the Okanagan was starting to challenge highway systems in the area. An open house outlining the project, which took place in January, received mostly positive feedback from area residents. “We do not yet have a budget for construction, but are able to move ahead with environmental approvals, design work and property acquisition,” Dulay told the committee. A two kilometre stretch of Highway 97, from just north of the McIntyre Creek bridge to a point just south of the Gallagher Lake Motel will be widened to four lanes, with paved shoulders. Dulay pointed out that there are no passing lanes in the 28 kilometre stretch between Deadman’s Lake to just south of Okanagan Falls. Highway studies show that a 15 kilometre interval is better from a safety standpoint. Sixty-four hundred vehicles per day utilized this section of

the Highway 97 corridor, with a high of 8,400 in the summer. Sixty -eight per cent of the time, motorists will be following behind other vehicles. There is no defintite date for start of construction on the ten million dollar project. Area “D” Director Tom Siddon reminded Dulay of the need to improve the dangerous corner along Vaseaux Lake; Dulay noted the project represented a number of challenges, and was not currently a project on the books. He said that in the near term, an improved warning sign system was being contemplated. Area “C” Director Allan Patton expressed concerns about the narrowness of McIntyre Creek bridge, and the planned reduction to two lanes at the north end that was proposed to take place on a corner Dulay responded that the bridge would be replaced at some point in the future, and that at the project’s northern limits, too many access needs precluded extending the four laning beyond the present boundary. Oliver Director Ron Hovanes admitted that the highway between Okanagan Falls and Osoyoos represented an “extreme bottleneck,” commenting that passing lanes helped to reduce frustration levels. “People just need an opportunity to get by slower traffic,” he said, “it will make for a much more pleasureable commute.” Dulay told the committee that the area should benefit from up to 70 jobs, lasting up to a year and a half. He expected minor traffic delays of five to 15 minutes during construction, which is not expected to begin this year.

Keremeos council approves 2012 strategic plan By Steve Arstad news@keremeosreview.com Keremeos’ Strategic Plan was put together to provide a framework around which all other village planning documents - such as the Official Community Plan and the budget - are assembled. As a living document, the length of the plan is tied to the present council’s term. It’s purpose is to set direction and priorities. Values, mission and vision statements are revisited every three years, whereas goals, priorities and actions are reviewed each year prior to the budget. This year’s strategic plan involved council and village staff, evolving

around three formal sessions. Keremeos’ operating philosophy involves the following points: - Integrity - Leadership - Accountability - Service - Stewardship - Teamwork The village’s mission statement is “to provide effective governance, services and amenities for our residents in a responsible, efficient and economical manner, while maintaining a rural community atmosphere.” The village’s vision statement is “A safe, sustainable and livable community with a rural atmosphere.” Other aspects of this year’s strategic plan include:

- Mayor and council have 27 years combined experience in municipal politics. - Staff have a total of 93 years municipal experience. - Council make decisions, set policy and represent the public interest, with the Chief Administrative Officer (Laurie Taylor) acts as interface and coordinator between council and staff. Staff implement policy and give advice. The role of the CAO is to report to council, acting as the link between council and staff. The CAO is council’s only employee, and is the only person who directs staff; all council requests flow through the CAO. The CAO is responsible for the overall management of village operations.

Proactive Violence Prevention Project offers free film presentation on March 28 By Ron Shonk PVPP Coordinator

Last year’s valley-wide “Men Together� Initiative was the first step in PVPP’s (Proactive Violence Prevention Project) two-phase plan to lower the incidences of domestic violence and abuse within our homes and communities. Over one hundred men have united to deliver their clear message that violence toward women and children is “just plain wrong�, and in their appeal to male abusers to “Stop It!,� and to seek help if necessary. Thanks in great part to our valley’s valliant “Men Together�, Phase Two is now here. In cooperation with the South Okanagan-Similkameen Violence in Relationships Committee, PVPP is pleased to announce a new, free, and

confidential resource for men who want to stop abusive behavior. “Change For Good� is a professionally facilitated weekly counselling and group-support program, offered in Keremeos as well as three other area locations. It is made possible through contributions from the Civil Forfeiture Office in partnership with Victim Services and Crime Prevention, Ministry of Justice and from the RCMP Family Violence Intervention Fund. The program launches next Wednesday, March 28 at 7 p.m., in the new Centre for Excellence Building of Penticton’s Okanagan College, with the free admission showing and discussion of the film “It’s Not Like I Hit Her.� The centre’s address is 583 Duncan Avenue, just off Penticton’s Channel Parkway. The public,from teens to adults is encouraged to attend. Spousal and child abuse touches nearly everyone, either directly or through the tears and fears

of family members and friends. It also plants the seeds that can lead to child and teen bullying and to sexual assault. Public awareness is a key component to ending violence, and to promoting PVPPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s motto, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Safety in our Communities, Safety in our Homes.â&#x20AC;? For more information â&#x20AC;&#x201C; including locations, starting dates, and confidential registration for Change For Good â&#x20AC;&#x201C; contact Rhea, the programâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s coordinator, at 250-488-5939 or <sos_change4good@yahoo.ca>.

Regional district continues to assess proposed smoke control bylaw By Steve Arstad news@keremeosreview.com The regional district’s Environment and Infrastructure Committee continued to discuss a smoke control bylaw for the region at the Mar. 15 meeting of the regional district board. The board last discussed the bylaw at the Sept. 1, 2011 board meeting. At the time, the board gave the bylaw three readings. Staff offered the bylaw up to the board for another look since the November municipal election had resulted in a significant change to board members. The original aim of the proposed bylaw was to encourage responsible burning by reducing smoke levels from home heating and open burning. It would bolster provincial environmental laws by prohibiting the burning of garbage and other materials listed in the provincial open burning smoke control regulation, and it would give the RDOS the ability to address outdoor boilers by restricting them to EPA certified appliances only. The burning bylaw would be complaint driven and enforced through the bylaw enforcement officer, rather than regional fire departments. A $10,000 provincial grant would be utilized to cover the initial costs of implementation and enforcement, after which time a bylaw specifying the program’s funding would have to be passed. There was not unanimous approval of the bylaw during the previous board’s discussions last September, with at least two jurisdictions opting out of it. “It wasn’t universally supported last time, so

we want to rescind it,” Chief Administrative Officer Bill Newell explained to the board. A large per centage of directors, however, continue to be interested in seeing the bylaw move forward.Discussion surrounding staff’s recommendation that the bylaw’s first three readings be rescinded and the bylaw abandoned elicited these comments: “There is no First Nations involvement, methods of cost recovery are vague, and the Village of Keremeos already has regulations,” Keremeos Director Manfred Bauer told the board, adding that he did not favour the bylaw. Area “F” Director Michael Brydon noted that the bylaw enjoyed widespread support the last time it was discussed. “It’s confusing what is being asked of us here,” he said, “we can’t get certain people on side... I’d like to see this come back it’s not clear who’s in and who’s out.” Area “B” Director George Bush admitted that this was the “first he had heard of (the bylaw).” Bush sought clarification regarding the bylaw’s jurisdiction in Area “B,” which was within the Keremeos Volunteer Fire Department’s service area. Area “D” Director Tom Siddon was also confused by the briefing notes, which seemed to endorse a policy of abandon-

ment. “It would be regrettable if we didn’t move forward on this,” he said. He suggested that if two or three directors would reconsider their positions, the board could move forward with it. Alternatively, the board could direct staff to create a new bylaw. Electoral Area “A” Director Mark Pendergraft explained to the new board why he originally opposed the bylaw, noting that his area was split between valley bottom residents and those who lived above the valley floor on Anarchist Mountain. “The mountain top residents don’t want the bylaw - it’s only needed on the bottom. I’m not prepared to sign. We already have laws to protect the burning of illegal items.” Directors Siddon, Brydon, Bauer and Bush expressed an interest in moving forward with the bylaw prior to a motion that “the bylaw at second reading be deferred to staff to research and return a bylaw which clarifies participant boundaries and costs by the first board meeting in June.” The motion carried, with Pendergraft remaining opposed.

Editorial It may be time to give big oil a break Recent spikes in the price of gasoline in the region has prompted the usual furious cries of foul over the perceived high profits of the oil and gas industry - especially more so when we are subjected to the companies’ profit numbers. However, if one compares oil industry profits to those made in other industries, we may find evidence that suggest these companies aren’t the villians we would so readily like them to be. For example, Exxon, Shell, BP, ConocoPhillips, and Chevron recently released their first quarter profit reports in the U.S. Averaged out, their profits were up 42 per cent from last year. Exxon led the pack - amassing $9.4 billion in quarterly earnings, from sales of 125.3 billion. After paying rougly 2.3 billion of that to their shareholders, the company is left with around seven billion dollars profit - which works out to 5.6 per cent of total sales. Compare that to a company like Johnson and Johnson, manufactrurers of a variety of products used by North Americans every day. The company made 9.7 billion on 65 billion in sales in the U.S. last year - which is 14.9 per cent of sales. Yet no one seems to raise their eyebrows, or condemn this as “profiteering.” In fact, the most recent data compiled by theAmerican Petroleum Institute indicate that U.S. oil and gas companies made an average of 6.7 cents on every dollar of sales in the third quarter of 2011, compared with 9.2 cents per dollar of sales for all manufacturing. We are all frustrated by the never ending cycle of rising oil prices. However, based on the evidence above, it would seem that we have made the industry a convenient bogey man for our anger at the pump. The oil industry is an easy target because, they do make tons of money - after all, they are selling something that few of us can do without. Oil companies’ profits - and the dollars they rake in may indeed be justifiable. It appears that we are going to have to look somewhere else in our quest to find someone to blame for the high cost of fuel.

Connecting students with jobs By Tom Fletcher BLack Press The noise of the teachers’ strike drowned out debate on the B.C. budget so thoroughly that one of Finance Minister Kevin Falcon’s more controversial ideas only made the news last week. Reporters dubbed it “Welfare Air.” Falcon plans a pilot program to offer social assistance recipients training and airfare if they can line up a job in B.C.’s northern energy boomtowns. Workers are being imported to fill jobs there, while in Metro Vancouver and elsewhere the number of single employable people applying for social assistance is rising. Much of oil and gas work is dirty and dangerous. These days most industrial jobs involve sophisticated electronics, and the technical skill level required is high. But there are entry-level jobs going begging, and relatively high pay is offered to fill positions in a short-staffed service sector in the Peace region.

NDP MLA Carole James, no stranger to northern B.C., dismissed Falcon’s plan as a stunt. There are unemployed people in the region who should be offered training before we start flying people up from Vancouver, James said. Yet I repeatedly hear from northern employers that the labour shortage is real and growing. The NDP warns that B.C. faces a future of “people without jobs, and jobs without people.” Mostly they blame the B.C. Liberals for removing apprenticeship programs from union control. I spoke with James about post-secondary needs a couple of weeks ago. She mentioned NDP leader Adrian Dix’s signature policy to restore B.C. student grants, funded by a capital tax on financial institutions. She also agreed that part of the problem is young people taking post-secondary education that leads to fields with poor job prospects. I suggested that if B.C. taxpayers are to increase their subsidy to post-secondary

students, already worth about two thirds of their schooling costs, perhaps grants could be targeted to areas of pressing economic need. To my surprise, James agreed that is worth considering. This is significant, not only because it is likely to be unpopular in the education establishment. There is a good chance that James, a former school trustee, will be B.C.’s education minister in 14 months. After writing about the labour shortage last week, I was bombarded with messages from an irate Vancouver high school teacher who mocked the whole notion as corporate propaganda. No labour shortage exists, globally or in B.C., he claimed. Rather, “capitalists” of the “one per cent” have tried to “vocationalize” public education for a century, but the “people” have always “resisted.” Radical socialists aside, why would matching student aid to employment demand be unpopular with teachers? Education Minister George Abbott offered a clue during the lengthy debate

over ending the teachers’ strike. Abbott noted that for every three teachers coming out of B.C. universities, there is currently only one job available. Certainly student debt is an issue worth discussing. And most would agree it’s easier to pay off loans if one can find a job in one’s field upon graduation. Should further subsidies go to soonto-be-unemployed teachers? No. Our education system trains too many people for what they want to do, rather than what the economy needs. And our economy definitely does not need more kids taught Marxist claptrap. Further to that, a tax on banks will be popular with some of today’s students, who protested against capitalism in the “occupy” camps that will resume as the weather improves. Others will examine the idea and conclude that financial institutions will recover the tax from customers, and perhaps find ways to get the job done with fewer employees.

Keremeos cannot afford loss of employment centre To the Editor: Keremeos is losing a very important service of which people seem to be unaware. On March 31, the WorkZone offices in Keremeos will close. It is an employment and resource centre which offers a free service that includes employment and career counselling, job search and support, access to funding sources for training and upgrading, work shops, job fairs and networking opportunities and many more services. At this time the office is open five days a week and is an excellent source for the unemployed. It is operated by the provincial government which has recently signed a contract with the YMCA to operate the work centres. It is unkown what hours the centre will keep, if any. It will be run on an appointment only basis and there will be no drop in services available here. Anyone who wants more service will have to go to Princeton or Penticton. This is ridiculous

since there is no daily public transport from Keremeos and this will throw another problem in front of the person who is trying to upgrade himself. This is bizarre action by the provincial government since Premier Clark has stated that the government has plans to fly people on welfare from the Lower Mainland to Northern B.C. where she believes jobs are more plentiful. This means that poor families will have to relocate if they wish to live together as a family unit. What will be the cost (apparent and covert) to the government and the unemployed with the closure of the WorkZones? If you wish to voice your concern, write to Premier Clark at: The Honourable Christy Clark, Premier of British Columbia, Box 9041 Station PROV GOVT, Victoria, B.C., or email her at: premier@gov.bc.ca Freda Easy, Keremeos

Message to politicians - lead by example To the Editor: I read once again that local MLA Bs. B, is trying to convince the public that 42,000 educated teachers are all wrong. George - Bill - Christy and the misfits insist they are correct in their one-sided evaluation. I have never read any MLA qualifications that make them judge and jury - for all I know some are dumber than the dumbest and stood in the corner of their classroom wearing a dunce cap. I believe it is high time these Liberal misleading - wanabe aristocrats roll back the rim as their pay - benefits - expense accounts -and golden pensions mixed with B.S. are overflow-

ing at the brim. Message for Christy and her Punch and Judy show - lead by example - practice what you preach - be honest and we will all wake up to a better day and future. I can suggest a place where the sun don`t shine to stuff Abbott and company, wrapped in his Bill 22. Personally I would ignore the ridiculous Bill 22 and create a new one for Porko`s to obey - titled - Payback can be a bitch. I wonder where Porko`s received an education - self taught - from a teacher or out behind the barn - I wonder ! Tom Isherwood, Olalla

CTF applauds British Columbia’s MLA pay freeze MLAs freezing own pay for third and fourth straight years MLAs and thousands of other public sector employees live by net zero— why not teachers? By Jordan Bateman B.C. Director, Canadian Taxpayers Federation The Canadian Taxpayers Federation (CTF) today commended the B.C. Government for scrapping a scheduled pay raise for the third and fourth straight years. “When governments are bleeding red ink, everyone needs to do their part,” said Jordan Bateman, the CTF’s B.C. Director. “MLAs need to lead by example and freezing their pay for four straight years is a great start.” The pay freeze was extended as part of last month’s B.C. budget legislation. Despite that fact, the B.C. Teachers Federation has been wrongly claiming that MLAs are getting a pay increase. “One of the B.C. Teachers Federation’s key talking points through social media is that MLAs are getting raises and teachers aren’t,” said Bateman. “That’s just plain false. MLAs and thousands of other public sector employees

are living with the net zero wage mandate—why not teachers?” The net zero wage mandate saved B.C. taxpayers $3 billion this fiscal year. “Net zero is the single best thing this government has done to control costs,” said Bateman. “It’s been such an important tool that even free-spending governments like Ontario want to emulate it.” The Ontario Government announced last week it wants to freeze teacher pay for at least two years and plans to eliminate some of their benefits package, specifically the ability to cashin unused sick leave. “Ontario’s huge deficit should be a warning to B.C. taxpayers about simply throwing money at problems or loud interest groups,” said Bateman. “We simply cannot afford to continue increasing every public sector employee’s pay and benefits forever.” The B.C. cabinet has gone even further than a simple pay freeze, taking a 10 per cent pay cut when the province is in deficit. “While we have continuing concerns about MLA pensions and other pay issues, one has to give credit where credit is due,” said Bateman. “It’s clear that cabinet feels the pinch of deficit budgets in their own lives and that’s an example that the CTF has encouraged other provinces, and levels of government, to follow.”

Improving space weather forecasting techniques critical to our information age

On 10 March, 1989 there was a huge explosion on the Sun. It ejected a huge cloud of hot gas and magnetic fields out into space at a speed between 1,000 and 2,000 kilometres a second. This cloud - a coronal mass ejection - arrived at the Earth in the early hours of 13 March, causing a massive geomagnetic storm. The result was massive power outages, communications disruptions and many other problems. The total damage bill came in at over $2 billion. That’s why

so much attention was paid to the recent solar flares. Unfortunately, it also helped fuel the “over the top” reports in the media. It is certainly true that we are now more vulnerable to the Sun’s bad behaviour than we were in 1989. The day-today business of our lives depends more upon our ability to exchange information quickly and efficiently than ever before in history. Effective power management means our networks are more intimately connected and therefore vulnerable. You might be surprised to know that solar activity can damage pipelines too, by dramatically accelerating corrosion. Moreover, we are making more and more pipelines. Then of course there is high-altitude air trav-

el, particularly on polar routes, where radiation levels are much higher during periods of elevated solar activity. A few years ago we had an excellent example of what happens when the Sun zaps a communication satellite or two. High-energy particles from the Sun disabled two Anik satellites, cutting off important communications and making many of our cable TV channels vanish. However over the last couple of decades we have made huge progress in a positive direction. In 1989 the phrase “space weather” did not even exist. We had only a hazy idea of the intimately-connected processes that start on the Sun and end on the surface of the Earth. Thanks to new observations and our improving scientific understanding, we can do

more to minimize the consequences of bad space weather than we could in 1989. Understanding and forecasting space weather is particularly important to Canada. This country’s high magnetic latitude and large size makes us particularly sensitive to its effects. This vulnerability is driving ongoing Canadian initiatives i n s p a ce weather. Our Solar Radio Flux monitors function as stethoscopes on the Sun’s pulse; satellites monitor conditions in space, and networks of sensors throughout Canada monitor the Earth’s magnetic field and nearby space environment. In collaboration, the National Research Council, Natural Resources Canada and the Canadian Space Agency are developing new measuring tools, such as the Next Generation Solar Flux

Monitor, under development here at the Dominion Radio Astrophysical Observatory and improved ground-based sensor networks. These should lead to more useful data and more effective forecasting system, to know better what is coming, and when. The Sun will cross the equator heading North at 1:14 EDT on the 20th, and 22:14 PDT on the 19th, marking the spring equinox and the official beginning of spring. Venus and Jupiter lie in the west after sunset. Venus is the bright one. Mars is in the east, and Saturn rises about 10 p.m. The Moon will be New on the 22nd. 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 III

Last week, we looked at “What is Menopause, what causes it, is it a disorder or a natural period of transition?” Now we will look at “Suggestions for Balancing Hormones and Sailing Smoothly through Menopause”. Let us start with some suggestions: • Avoid hydrogenated oils and processed vegetable oils • Emphasize cold pressed olive oil. Small amounts of butter are okay. Introduce essential fatty acids into your diet by increasing fresh fish consumption (1-3 times per week), supplementing with fish oils (1000 mg per day), supplementing with flax seed oil (1 tbsp. per day, must be used cold). • Don’t smoke. • Limit alcohol to 2 or less drinks per day. Red wine is best. • Eat whole, fresh, organic foods. • Drink mainly water or herbal teas. • Keep fat consumption to 25-30% of total dietary intake. • Eat a plant based diet. Plenty of fresh, organic vegetables, whole grains, legumes, nuts, seeds, and fruits. Add quality protein and oils with every meal and snack. • Exercise moderately and regularly. Preferably daily for 30 minutes or more. • Use progesterone cream if necessary. 20-30 mg of progesterone per day for 3 weeks of each month consecutively if post-menopausal, and 20-30 mg per day from day 12-26 in pre-menopausal women. • Eat plenty of soy and flax. Two servings of soy per day and 1-3 tbsp. of ground flax per day provide phytoestrogen support which protects from the adverse effects of “bad” estrogens. Take supplements, a minimum of: Vitamin D 1000-2000 iu per day Vitamin C 1000-2000 mg per day in divided doses j Beta-carotene 20-50,000 iu per day Vitamin B6 50 mg per day Zinc 15-30 mg per day Magnesium 300-500 mg per day Antioxidants (vitamin E, 400 iu, Selenium, 200 mcg) Multi-vitamin Bio: Dr. Tamara Browne - Naturopathic Doctor. has had an active general family Naturopathic practice and is located at 101-1040 Main Street Okanagan Falls BC, V0H 1R4.

PEANUTS A HEALTHY SNACK

Peanuts are a healthy snack. They are nutritionally sound, containing vitamin B and E, minerals, protein, fibre and the amino acid, arginine, which is touted to be beneficial to blood pressure. Peanuts are legumes, a member of the pea family not the nut family. One to two ounces per day is a good dose of peanuts.

TESTING FOR PROPER DOSING IMPORTANT

Seniors go to hospital emergency departments for various reasons. Often it is due to a drug adverse reaction. Two classes of drugs that cause almost two-thirds of these visits are anticoagulants (“blood thinners”) and diabetic medications including insulin. The reason is that constant testing needs to be done to ensure proper dosing. Our pharmacists can help you understand the importance of testing.

EIGHT HOURS IS IDEAL

There is no health advantage to being an early riser. The important thing is to get enough sleep. If you don’t get enough sleep, your reaction times mentally and physically can be impaired and your immune system can be compromised. Eight hours of sleep per day is ideal.

FORGIVENESS GOOD FOR YOU

There are many non-drug methods of reducing blood pressure and symptoms of depression. One method that is definitely helpful is the idea of forgiveness. Many people hold grudges for a long time and this has effect on their mental and physical states of health. Forgiving those that hurt you could give you a feeling of great well-being and free you from anxiety and hostility. Forgiveness is good medicine. You will enjoy our pharmacy. We do our best to provide you with hassle-free service. Give us a try!

ORL increases eBook offerings Contributed Ebook demand at the library has taken off since Christmas and the Okanagan Regional Library (ORL) has responded by adding over 1,400 new titles to its digital book collection free to all library members in the region. The ORL had been part of a consortium of B.C. libraries that shared in a collection of eBooks and eAudiobooks called “Library to Go”, but changes to the software distributor’s contract required the ORL to start its own collection called “ORL eBooks”. Access to both collections of digital books can be found on the ORL’s homepage www.orl.bc.ca by clicking on the “Library to Go” or “ORL eBooks” buttons. The new “ORL eBooks” collection includes 1,380 titles of digital eBooks that can be read on compatible computers, eReader devices, and mobile smartphones, and 47 eAudiobooks that can be listened to through an mp3 player. New content is being

added each week. Since the service went live a month ago, members in the ORL region have already checked out items over 2,000 times. “We’re really starting to see that shift to our members using digital content, especially the spike after the holidays after many people got eReaders as presents,” says ORL’s Executive Director Lesley Dieno. The eBook and eAudiobooks can be requested and borrowed just like physical books for up to three weeks . The files include digital rights management (DRM) coding to ensure they cannot be shared and they are automatically returned to the library when the loan period is up. “It can take a bit of patience to learn how to use the system and download the initial software needed to work with the files, but once that’s done customers can place holds, download content, and read or listen for free,” explains Dieno. “And one great advantage, especially for customers who live

a distance from one of our branches, is that the content can be accessed 24/7 from a home computer.”

The ORL has been part of the province-wide “Library to Go” service since 2009, and saw an 82 per cent increase in

SRC Bowling scores for the week of March 12-15

downloads in 2010 and a 151 per cent rise in 2011. ORL customers will still have access to “Library to Go” materials purchased before the end of this month as well as its new ORL eBooks collection.

(L-R) Rain (HART RN), Sean (BCAS Paramedic), Wes (HART RN), Steve (BCAS Unit Chief Penticton) and Lorna (Respiratory Therapist) execute a simulation demonstrating how BCAS and the HART members work together during transports of acutely ill or injured patients.

Penticton home base for new HART team Acute care support to outlying areas will relive workload on doctors and nurses in smaller communities By Simone Blais Black Press Health care in the South Okanagan and Similkameen just got a bit of HART. Interior Health announced Wednesday that Penticton will serve as the home base for the newest high-acuity response team (HART), which is designed to serve smaller communities in the region. “With the launch of the Penticton HART team, we’re not only providing increased support to very sick and injured patients during transfers, we’re also providing additional clinical support to the health-care team at Penticton Regional Hospital,” Interior Health chair Norman Embree said. Previously the safest method of transporting an acutely ill patient from communities like Princeton, Keremeos, Oliver, Osoyoos and Summerland required a doctor and nurse to travel with the patient. But in those smaller regions, the doctors and nurses in question were the only people on schedule — leaving the emergency room or clinic area with insufficient coverage. The HART is created as a support to those outlying areas. When a transport is required, the HART will be called in to travel to the referring facility with B.C. Ambulance. That team will draw from a pool of six highly trained critical care nurses who will always be on site, working in the Penticton Regional Hospital emergency room or intensive care unit when not on the road. A respiratory therapist is also available to travel as required. They will roll out a cart of portable equipment like ventilators and blood pressure monitors, depending on the patient’s needs, as the ambulance approaches the hospital. Once people and equipment are in, the ground trip is taken to the referring facility to pick up the patient. The service can also work for transporting acutely ill patients to Kelowna for care as well. Rain Nickerson, a nurse with nine years of experience in the ER and ICU, said all the equipment and medication will be at the fin-

gertips of HART to ensure the patient’s safety as they travel. “B.C. Ambulance can have a bag of saline, but no medicine,” she said. “But this is like having a little ICU in the back of the ambulance.” Brent Hobbs, Interior Health’s network director of patient transportation, said that the medical community has long advocated for better support for rural physicians and nurses in the event of larger emergencies for some time. “They wanted a solution to having to send the only nurse and only doctor after-hours for many hours at a time,” he said. He cited the example of a recent mobile home fire in Lytton: the one doctor and nurse on staff had to treat four badly burned victims — two adults and two children — pulled from the flames. Hobbs said a HART team was dispatched to Lytton to help medical staff. “The closest help is many, many hours away,” he said. “HART got there to assist those staff who were completely overwhelmed … The children did not survive, but the adults did and we were able to keep the doctor and nurse in their home community.” Hobbs said that the HART team will pair well with the dedicated paramedic helicopter run newly established out of Kamloops, that will see patients flown between facilities. “These two programs will complement each other,” he said. Dr. Trevor Connolly, the local medical director for HART, said the 24/7 coverage will be a win for both patients, rural facilities and the Penticton hospital. “It was a project I believed in, and I also believed in the staff we got,” he said. “As a physician, we always worry about patients in transport. It’s a big decision to know whether these patients are going to be stable during transportation or require a higher level of care. “This will really bridge that gap or void.” South Okanagan Similkameen Medical Foundation executive director Janice Perrino said they were able to make the $180,000 donation to set the team up with equipment after a Penticton man saw the need for better rural service and coverage, in part because his family lived in the outlying region. “He was not able to give this gift in his life,” Perrino said, noting it was a legacy donation made as part of his estate. “The only part that makes me sad is he’s not here to see what a difference it will make.”

Go Beyond Composting RDOS offering devices to improve the scale of household recycling of organice wastes - but only for a limited time RDOS press release The RDOS wants to help residents â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Go Beyond Compostingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. For a limited time, the RDOS and participating member municipalities will be selling systems that can safely handle cooked foods, meat and dog feces on their property. Free workshops, on how to use the systems, will be held in Penticton, Oliver, Princeton and Keremeos. Most backyard compost bins, such as the Earth Machine Compost Bin, can help beautifully compost yard waste and uncooked fruits and vegetables. They are not designed to breakdown stinky or dangerous waste such as cooked foods, meat or dog feces. These items can create powerful odors, attract pests and potentially spread diseases. Until April1, 2012, the RDOS will be selling Bokashicycle systems and The Green Cone. Both systems help add valuable nutrients to your soil while safely dealing with hard to compost materials. The Green Cone takes all kinds of food waste and dog feces, and breaks it down naturally into a liquid that is absorbed into the earth. After installation, you just dump organic waste in every day. The Green Cone does the rest. The soil around it is enriched with the nutrients that come from the process. Visit www.greencone.ca for details. Bokashicycleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s microbial action converts all foodwaste or petwaste into nutrient rich soil in weeks, eliminating pathogens and odours. The system creates a bokashi tea (concentrated liquid fertilizer) and a fermented material shown to promote exceptional plant growth when buried in gardens. Visit www.bokashicycle.com for details. Cameron Baughen, RDOS Solid Waste Management Coordinator, believes both systems work as directed, but residents should learn more about the systems before buying them. Both systems require materials be buried into the soil so can only be used by homes with backyards and gardens. Neither the Bokashicycle or The Green Cone are designed to take yard waste. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These systems require some work by the home owner,â&#x20AC;? explains Baughen. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Both use natural micro-organisms to quickly decompose materials and return nutrients to the soil. Although fairly easy to use, they are not magic. People should learn more about them before purchasing.â&#x20AC;? The RDOS will be hosting free workshops to encourage home owners to learn more about the systems before buying one. Workshops on The Green Cone will be held at Oliverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Quailâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Nest Artâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Centre on March 22 and at the Penticton Community Garden on March 23. Bokashicycle workshops will held at Princetonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s John Allison Elementary on March 2, Oliverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Quailâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Nest Artâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Centre on March 28 and the Penticton Community Garden on March 29. All workshops start at 6 p.m. and participants are asked to dress warmly. The RDOS will also be selling Earth Machine backyard compost bins and worm composting equipment. Backyard compost bins are excellent at composting yard waste and uncooked fruits and vegetables. Worm composting is the cheapest and easiest way to compost indoors and is ideal for apartments and homes. Free backyard composting workshops will be held on March 24 at the Penticton Community Garden, March 31 at the Oliver Quailâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Nest Arts Centre and in Memorial Park in Keremeos on April 1. These sessions begin at 2 p.m. A free worm composting workshop will be held on Monday, March 26 , at 7 p.m. at the RDOS Main Office at 101 Martin Street in Penticton. For more information on this sale, on the cost for each system or on how the different systems work please contact the RDOS at info@rdos. bc.ca, visit www.rdos.bc.ca. call 250-490-4129 or call toll free in BC 1-877-610-3737. Brochures on pricing and how to pay are available at local municipalities and the RDOS.

A lesson in local geology This cut block of rhodenite came from the slide area west of Keremeos. It was cut from a five ton boulder by Stonewriter in Millet, Alberta. Much of this rock (semi-precious gem stone) has been used for rip-rap on the Similkameen River dyke in the Keremeos area. The rhodenite (manganese) is part of a regional strataform deposit. These are volcanigenic sea bottom black â&#x20AC;&#x153;smokersâ&#x20AC;? approximately 400 million years old. The formation also carries traces of gold and silver and may have geologic links with Hedley gold deposit.

Representatives from the Hedley Community Club, Hedley Heritage Museum Society, Grace Church, Hedley Volunteer Fire Department and the Hedley Old Age Pensioners Organization were invited. These are all organizations that have applied for assistance grants from the RDOS. In addition, a number of interested community people were in attendance as observers and resource people. The evening commenced with a “get acquainted” exercise that involved collaboration to create a full message – that of community cooperation. It was fun, served its purpose of driving home the message of joint effort, and got things off to a good start. Angelique then provided a quick run-down on the current budget framework and situation at the RDOS, showing agreements that had already been made in negotiations between the Village of Keremeos and the Olalla/Hedley areas of Area “G.” The third phase of the evening was in two sections. One group – the representatives of the organizations seeking grants – shared their plans and needs with the other representatives, and engaged in questioning and explaining their particular needs and situations. Angelique asked the representatives of the five requesting groups to act as a jury and vote by secret ballot and commentary on the requests. Angelique explained that this would reinforce the notion of community cooperation and shared information, and relieve her of the burden of perceived conflict of interest. She would announce the results and her decisions on the matter in due

course. The other group – the general community observers – were given information on a variety of community actions and projects under consideration in Area “G” and RDOS generally. These included information on the proposed Fortis pipeline from Kingsvale to Oliver via Ashnola and behind Nickel Plate; a new and interesting planning tool – a workshop format “futures game” – on Pacific Northwest Regional Planning; the Similkameen Valley Planning Association and its proposed water study; the Similkameen Tourism Advisory Council and its current work to develop the Similkameen Valley as a destination in its own right rather than a corridor to the Okanagan Valley. At 8:30 p.m. the tired but happy groups reconvened to receive reports from the Hedley Volunteer Fire Department, Grace Church, the Community Club and the OAPO. All is well with the fire department, with a full membership and a waiting list. Grace Church is planning for its annual bottle drive on May 12 at the fire hall to provide funds for the children’s camp; a Community Club dinner was scheduled for March 17 and the AGM on March 20. It is also scheduling a Mother’s Day event on the second Sunday in May. On April 14 the OAPO is hosting a pot-luck appreciation dinner for the volunteers who have created the Miracle On Scott Avenue. During discussion and questions, Chantal Moreau commented that the Hedley Farmers Market would be officially opening on June 17. The final event of the packed evening was a delightful short film on a Yorkshire village that has created a full-bore vegetable and fruit supply for general, free community use. Among other things, they are using burial plots in an old graveyard as vegetable and berry beds. The gardens are thriving. Angelique is suggesting another meeting in the series - Wednesday June 6 at 6 p.m. The venue for this meeting shall be the Hedley Community Club, located at 956 Scott Avenue, two doors north of the Hitching Post restaurant.

No hope for double murderer Early parole denied for man convicted of murdering two men near Keremeos in 1994 By Kristi Patton Black Press Robert Nicholson was denied his application for an early parole for two murders he committed almost 18 years ago. The Keremeos man applied under the faint-hope clause and was put before a jury at the Penticton provincial courthouse. After two weeks of listening to the hearing evidence, the jury deliberated on Friday deciding to not allow an early parole for the man. Nicholson can apply again in two years. In 1994, Nicholson pled guilty to the murder of Alfred Vass and Paul Dugus who he beat to death with a baseball bat. He was sentenced to 25 years in jail. During the two-week hearing, the court heard victim impact statements from family of the murdered men. Defense lawyer Donna Turko admitted to the court that Nicholson had not been an ideal inmate when he first entered jail, getting in trouble for smoking marijuana. Turko claimed the longer a person stays in prison the harder it is for them to become a productive crime-free person when they are let out. She said Nicholson had “come a long way from the violent 20-year-old he was.” Turko described the teenage Nicholson as a person who was depressed, abused drugs and alcohol and suf-

fered from paranoia and trauma. It was explained that Nicholson took programming in jail to reduce his dependance on drugs, started volunteer work and embraced religion. Turko said this led to Nicholson being reduced to minimum security from medium around 2007. She also argued lifers are the least likely to re-offend. Crown Counsel Rob Bruneau said there is no question Nicholson benefitted from programming offered in jail but the extent of that is difficult to answer. He said from his perspective it is “not justified to give parole eligibility reduced from the 25 years.” Bruneau reminded the court that Nicholson had served time for an assault with a weapon charge just one year prior to the two murders. And, while Crown agreed Nicholson was young at the time that he was by “no means an innocent offender.” Crown also argued that Nicholson showed no immediate remorse for the two men he murdered and took undercover RCMP posing as members of a criminal organization to the grave sites, sharing details of the murder. Bruneau called the murders “vicious” and “brutal.” “Something you want to think about carefully when you think of if Mr. Nicholson should get the benefit of reduced eligibility,” said Bruneau.

Wise words are worth passing on Contributed by Tom Isherwood I thought these words I have been carrying in my wallet for many years might be worth sharing. When you judge people remember one overriding axiom. Everyone is having a hard time; everyone is insecure; everyone is hassled. Everyone is tired.... we all need more sleep. Everyone wishes he had

more courage, more money and better social skills. Everyone wants more glamour in his life, and we all desperately need more laughter. Few can figure out how they ended up living the life they lead. Don’t be mislead by flippant talk; it’s a battle for everyone ..... Give people a break. it’s not easy doing a life. - Joshua Halberstam in “Everyday Ethics”

Tax tips that add up This year, add UP your tax savings by using these tips. Basics • You are never too young or have too little income -- always file a tax return, which can trigger eligible benefits and credits such as the GST/HST credit and Canada Child Tax Benefit, get back tax withheld at source, add to RRSP contribution room, or prove that a student has no income if applying for federal/provincial loans and bursaries. • Basic personal tax credit – raised to $10,527. • Spouse/equivalent to spouse and/or eligible dependent credit – for an eligible partner and/or dependent with a net income of less than $10,527. • Caregiver credit – up to $4,282 for care of an infirm or elderly relative in your home. • Disability credit – transfer unused portion to a supporting relative. • Medical expenses credit – generate the largest credit by combining expenses on the return of a lower earning spouse and/or by choosing the most advantageous 12-month period for unclaimed expenses ending in the current taxation year. • Charitable donation credit – maximize by combining donations on one tax return or carrying forward to achieve higher tax rate for contributions over $200. Claim previously unclaimed donations for a five-year period. Boomers, etc. • Age credit – for those over 65 with a net income below $76,541. Transfer unused portion to supporting spouse. • Pension income credit – claim up to $2,000. Transfer unused portion to eligible spouse. • Pension income splitting – may be advantageous to allocate half of your qualifying pension to a lower-earning spouse. Children • Children’s art tax credit – up to $500 per child against eligible fees for arts programs. • Children’s fitness credit – up to $500 per child against eligible fees for a physical activity program. • Credit for children born in 1994 or later -- $2,131 per child. • Childcare – claim babysitting/other childcare expenses that allow you or your spouse to work or take a training course. Must be claimed by lower-earning spouse. • Adoption expenses – claim up to $11,128 for an adoption finalized in 2011. Credit can be split between adoptive parents. Students • Claim eligible tuition fees, education and textbook costs, and interest on student loans – the supporting parent or grandparent of a student may be able to claim all

MANAGING Your Money or a portion of the tuition, education and textbook amounts when transferred to you to a maximum of $5,000. Other tax-trimmers • Company pension plan contribution for 2011 – deductible within limits. • Public transit credit – claim the costs of monthly passes/electronic payment cards. File by the deadline to avoid penalties and make sure your calculations are correct so you don’t inadvertently overpay. Be sure your expense claims are valid and don’t overlook newer credits like the Child Arts, Home Renovation and First Time Home Buyers’ credits. A professional advisor can help you get the max in tax savings.

Report from School District 53 By Marieze Tarr Submitted on behalf of Similkameen trustees School District 53 would like to remind everyone that our Pow Wow will be on Friday, April 13 and Saturday, April 14 at Osoyoos Secondary School. All grade four students in the district will be bussed to Osoyoos to participate in the grand entry at 10:30 a.m. and other morning activities. Dinner will be served at 5 p.m. each day and breakfast on Saturday will be from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. Everyone is invited to attend and have fun. The Early Development Instrument process is complete and we would like to thank all of our Kindergarten teachers for their dedication and commitment to our students and communities by completing this assessment. The data from these surveys are critical to community groups and to the school district by allowing us to study the health and well-being of our children as they enter Kindergarten. The Foundation Skills Assessment (FSA)

has been completed by all of our Elementary Schools. Thank you to all of our school administrators for their hard work in ensuring that every student had the opportunity to participate in this assessment. The scores will be entered by the district office and parents will receive their children’s results. The primary purpose of the FSA’s is to help schools, school planning councils, school districts and the province to evaluate how foundation skills are being addressed and to make plans for improvement. The secondary purpose is to provide individual student information to parents. FSA measures students’ skills in three areas: reading, writing and numeracy. We are very proud of our students (seventeen students in total) who participated in the Skills Canada competition in Kelowna on March 2. Three students from SOSS medalled: Travis Nowicki (gold), Trent Phillips (silver) both these students competed in the Mechanical CAD division. Blake Powesland won bronze in the carpentry

division. Ishkarn Hundal from SESS won a silver medal in the Gravitiy Car Competition. Gold medalists will continue on to the provincial competition in Abbotsford on April 18 . The board approved Dry Grad trips for both SESS and OSS. OSS with lead teacher Peter Gajda will be going to Vancouver on June 9 after graduation and returning to Osoyoos the next day. SESS, with Barton Tunlinson will also be going to Vancouver (June 9) and returning June 10. We wish them a safe trip with lots of fun. Our Enrollment Report to the ministry indicates 2 429.50 FTE which is an overall increase from September 2011 of 36.125 FTE. Elementary Schools have decreased by 12 FTE, secondary schools decreased by 40.125 FTE and YouLearn has increased by 88.5FTE since September 2011. We would like to invite everyone to our first Community Learning Forum on April 11. This forum will be at the board office and will have an Aboriginal focus. The Board of Education wishes all of our students and staff a well deserved and safe spring break.

School notes Approval was given for Similkameen Elementary Secondary School’s grad trip, Barton Tumlinson, lead teacher. This trip will leave SESS at 3:15 a.m. Saturday, June 9 arriving at the River Rock Casino in Richmond for breakfast at 9:15 a.m. They will then travel to the PNE, to Splashdown Water Park in Tsawwassen, and then to Metrotown Mall in Burnaby, returning to Keremeos at 2:00 a.m., June 10. Skills Canada: On Friday, March 2, students from the district travelled to Kelowna to participate in the Skills Canada competitions. Following are the students and results: Similkameen Elementary Secondary School: - Gravity car competition: Group 1-Charley Cottrill, Jetson Gibbs, Ranjeet Brar, and Ishkarn Hundal (Silver); Group 2 - Gagandeep Lasser, Chance Wabnegger Student Designed Ads: Each year for education week, the Review Newspaper (Keremeos) runs a special section. This year the Review is having grade five students at SESS design ads in this special section which runs on March 29. To support this initiative the district will be running a three column by three inch advertisement for the upcoming learning forum on April 11.

Museum Social Afternoon Saturday March 31 at 1 p.m. in the Ecumenical Church, the museum society will be hosting a social afternoon. Contributed by Judy Chisholm Brian Wilson of Okanagan Archive Trust Society will be in town with photo collections from Doug Cox, who has published a series of history books on the Okanagan and Similkameen and the ranching heritage of British Columbia. You may recognize titles such as, Okanagan Roots, Mines of the Eagle Country: Nickel Plate and Mascot. Doug has been collecting stories and photos for over 35 years. Bring your own collection of photos of your family and friends and share an afternoon of reminiscing about the “good ole days”. The coffee pot will be on and there will be lots of talk and laughter. But the really fun part is all the photos that people bring. So dust off your old photo albums, dig out that box and find all your old photos of the area. Share memories of your family and friends and enjoy a social afternoon at no cost.

Earth hour challenge to pit Princeton and Keremeos in friendly energy saving competition At the March 5 regular meeting of council, Keremeos Village Council received a letter from the Town of Princeton “dropping the gauntlet” in a challenge to take place during Earth Hour. Should Keremeos repeat as winner in the event by conserving the most energy during Earth Hour on March 31, the Town of Princeton will buy council dinner. (Keremeos won last year’s challenge with Princeton.) An overview of the village’s strategic plan was presented to council prior to hearing from the public with respect to receiving input on the budget. Four members of the public were present for the meeting. Kars Under the “K” sent a letter to council requesting sponsorship for a $100 trophy for their 11th annual car show on Aug. 5 this year. Council agreed to the annual request. Kars Under the “K” also presented a request to council for use of Memorial Park and for some assistance from public works staff for the set up for the event.

Organic Farming Institute hires new program administrator Contributed The Organic Farming Institute of British Columbia has named Denise Blashko as its’ new Program Administrator. Ms. Blashko will be in charge of marketing the Institute’s first rate training program to local BC farmers as well as Canadian and International Farmers. She will be responsible for fundraising, sponsorship and building long term viability for the non-profit society. Ms. Blashko has worked for organizations such as Central Alberta Economic Partnership, Central Alberta Rural Manufacturers Association, as well as Red Deer College in Red Deer, Alberta. She brings with her a passion for small business coaching and training, and for organic and sustainable farming. The OFIBC Chair, Kevin Klippenstein feels that “more farmers are researching sustainability and there

are larger numbers of people wanting to know where their food comes from and this is translating into existing farmers wanting to learn more about organic methods and an increased desire for young people to get back into farming. Ms. Blashko’s marketing and business training knowledge will help the Institute to capitalize on these trends and help increase awareness of our training programs and move the Institute to the next level. We are fortunate and thankful to have received fantastic project funding from SIBAC (Southern Interior Beetle Action Coalition) and SIDIT (Southern Interior Development Initiative Trust), which will allow us to continue working towards achieving our goals.” The Organic Farming Institute of British Columbia is a charitable organization which began as a local, grassroots initiative and has grown to province-wide proportions. Organic and sustainable agricultural principles have a long history in the Similkameen Valley

and they have the highest concentration (40 per cent) of organic farms in Canada. The OFIBC is a direct result of farmers and residents in this area wanting to establish a centre for excellence in organic, sustainable farming and research that would utilize the storehouse of expertise and knowledge in the organic farming community.

Pipeline briefing overshadowed by environmental concerns

At least two regional directors took exception to com-

Wilf Miller ponders Dear Friernds: You are sometimes interested in the things I have dug up over a time, so here is something I found in a book by National Geographic called “Indians of the Americas.” In Central America a farmer dug up what he thought

news ments made by Fortis representative Bob Gibney, who addressed the Environment and Infrastructure Committee at the regional district on Mar.15. Gibney was there to speak to the committee about Fortis’ planned gas pipeline twinning between Kingsvale and Oliver. He told the board that B.C. had “lots of gas all of a sudden” due to use of fracking technology. Both Area “C” Director Allan Patton and Area “D” Director Tom Siddon took exception to the controversial practice of fracking, noting coalbed methane concerns in the Similkameen.

It was suggested by Siddon that Fortis practice more sensitive public relations, especially in light of the recent controversy the company endured over construction of a new hydro transmisssion line along the east side of the Okanagan valley between Oliver and Penticton in 2010. A testy exchange between Siddon and Gibney ensued after Gibney referred to the transmission line issue as in the past, to which Siddon responded that wasn’t the case, and he would see it moved before the issue could be considered over.

were huge boulders in a circle. On trying to dig them up he found they were huge - 30 foot high stone heads in a circle, and they were very well carved, one is a perfect baby’s head with a tongue and one tooth. They were buried by eons of time with dust over the ages. This same book says in their diggings in Mexico City, in old Aztec writings that the stone pyramids (square ones) were there when the Aztec people arrived there, and they don’t know who the pyramids were built by. Well - add that to the huge heads on Easter Island on

a desert and no one knows anything about them, or for that matter the pyramids of Egypt and their history is unknown. These three civilizations were very brilliant in moving and carving huge pieces of stone that are too large for modern man to move. Seems to me there are many pieces of excellent stone work in the world no one knows anything about. Some of the art work on these stones is very brilliant as well. Any answers? - Wilf Miller

OBITUARY TROTTER, JOHN January 8, 1920 - March 14, 2012 He was delivered by his father in his grandmotherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ranch house on the Little Missouri River in McKenzie Co. ND. On April 17, 1942 he married Elsie Pelissier just before he was inducted into the Cavalry to serve in the South Pacific during World War II. After the war, they ranched and raised their family on the same ranch where he was born until they moved to Northern B.C. with the bear and moose in November 1962. They ran lots of steers at the foot of China Nose Mountain for six years before moving to the Similkameen Valley. At their Cawston ranch many came to teamrope and valued his good eye and knowledge of a good pedigree when it came to horses. Lots of good working horses came through this cow calf operation. Amazingly enough, John got to enjoy this active life with his grandson, TJ until he retired at 91 years of age. In just a month John and Elsie would have celebrated their â&#x20AC;&#x153;seventieth wedding anniversaryâ&#x20AC;?. John is survived by his wife, Elsie Trotter; son, Sparky Trotter; daughter, Jo Lee Riley; sisters, Doris Murray, Margaret Kreis, Pearl Willis.
