Guide outfitters to benefit from regulatory changes Contributed by Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resources Guide outfitters got a much-needed break on paperwork on April 1, when amendments to the Wildlife Act came into force that will triple the amount of time available to provide a hunting report to government. The government also reaffirmed its commitment to more than double the maximum term of the guiding territory certificate by no later than July 1, providing guides greater business security so they can concentrate on what they do best: giving visitors to British Columbia a first-class hunting experience. Both amendments have been eagerly awaited by guide professionals since they were approved as part of Wildlife Act amendments during the fall 2011 sitting of the legislature. The amendments also contained changes to benefit resident hunters, such as an expanded youth licence and a new Initiation Hunting Licence. These amendments will be implemented before the end of the year.

Open Door Group to offer 10 week employment skills program in Keremeos By Steve Arstad news@keremeosreview.com Open Door Group, a non-profit organization that delivers employment programs to British Columbians, is coming to Keremeos to conduct Job Options BC, after conducting a very successful program in Osoyoos. Job Options BC, funded by the Ministry of Jobs, Tourism and Innovation, is a10-week program aimed at helping unemployed British Columbians gain the skills, confidence and experience needed to find work. The program is free of charge to eligible participants and participants can access a weekly stipend while tak-

ing the in-class portion of the program. “We not only teach people how to find work, we also teach communication skills and skills that will help that person keep their job,” said Julianne Diubaldo of Open Door Group. “Students also learn conflict management skills and interview skills as well.” Diubaldo said that a wide variety of people came through the Osoyoos program, which had a very high placement rate. People found work in such varied occupations as landscaping, forklift driving, hotel management. Participants receive a flash drive containing resumes and a cover letter at the end of the program, which en-

tails five weeks of in-class sessions that includes groupbased activities, one on one teaching and a customized job search process. Open Door Group’s program is not affiliated with the YMCA’s employment services program in Keremeos, which begins in April with the closure of WorkZone. Interested residents of the Lower Similkameen need to register soon for the April 23 start up of the Job Options BC program in Keremeos. Participants cannot be Employment Insurance eligible.

Community effort called for in Hedley By Angelique Wood RDOS Director, Area “G” Calling everyone in Hedley!! We need your yard waste and lawn clippings to build serious soil in a “Hugelbeet”. An alliance of individuals and organizations in Hedley want to turn all of our tree trimmings and green waste into useable soil, working from a template which has proved successful in a similar climate in southern Ontario. This alliance is called “Spirit Gardens” and is spearheaded by Vickie Hansen (founder of the Hedley Farmer’s Market) and Angelique Wood (currently serving as electoral area “G” director). The group working on spirit gardens would like to see many projects completed, but for our first pilot project we want to see if we can build a successful Hugelbeet in an area compromised for good soil. A Hugelbeet is essentially a giant compost pile which gets planted while it’s still rotting, utilizing yard waste which would, in Hedley, often be dumped up 20 mile creek, burned on Upper Simikameen Indian Band land, or dumped in the Similkameen River. Other alternatives include trucking our yard waste 30 km in either direction to the Keremeos transfer station or the Princeton landfill. For the average pick-up load the gas costs usually total anywhere from $10$20 so very few residents choose this option. Both facilities chip the wood waste and use it

as fill at the dump sites, so the valuable energy stored in the green waste is lost. We expect our first project to cost around $1,000 for a few truckloads of manure and the costs to operate some heavy equipment to move the heaviest tree trunks into place. We will need informational signage so that the area is not misused as it will be unmanned and therefore “self-serve” much of the time. We aim to raise the money for these costs through grant applications, but plan to proceed with building the mounds whether we obtain funding or not. If we must use brute force instead of machinery, we’ll assemble a work party, and beg Beryl to organize it! We have been told by the RDOS that Hedley may be able to obtain “credits” for the waste diverted from the landfill. If we document the yard trimmings generated here, which will be re-used to build soil, we may be able get free chipping, or a reduction of taxes. The success of this project will depend on the cooperation of all residents, and the volume of waste which we are able to funnel into one place to build these giant compost piles. An information session on composting options sponsored by the RDOS will be held at the Hedley Community Club at 956 Scott Avenue on Sunday, April 1, at 11a.m. There will be a presentation on Hugelbeets and the plans of Hedley Spirit Gardens after the RDOS workshop. Please join us for an informative and inspiring session.

Valley First community partnership raises food, funds and awareness Contributed On March 17, employees from Valley First’s Keremeos branch partnered with Valu-Plus to help raise food, funds and awareness for the Feed the Valley program. Through Feed the Valley cookbook sales and cash and food donations, the Valley First team was able to collect more than $250 and a full cart of food for the Cawston and Area Food Bank – all in under four hours. “Valley First has always been very involved in our community, not just with Feed the Valley but with the Chamber of Commerce and other events and committees, too,” says Keremeos Mayor Manfred Bauer. “They are really involved in promoting and strengthening our area. We are

really appreciative for everything Valley First does in our community.” Feed the Valley – a corporate citizenship program created by Valley First – aims to raise food, funds and awareness for local food banks. Since its launch in March 2010, Feed the Valley has donated 300 pounds of food and more than $12,000 to the food bank. As part of its 65th anniversary celebration, Valley First is challenging members and employees to donate 6,500 pounds of food to Feed the Valley by the end of 2012. The Valley First branch that gathers the largest weight contribution will donate $6,500 to its local food bank. Donations can be made at any Valley First branch or insurance location.

Council holds special meeting of council to deal with time sensitive grant funds By Steve Arstad news@keremeosreview.com Keremeos Village Council held a special meeting of council on Mar. 27 at noon to deal with a couple of time sensitive issues. Similkameen Country has recently been advised by the Ministry of Jobs, Tourism and Innovation of an increase to its Visitor Centre funding. As a result, each visitor centre in B.C. is eligible for a one time payment of $7,500. The funding is being provided to cover purchases made between Jan.1 and Mar.31 of this year. Similkameen Country identified several items to be covered by the funding. These include re-finishing the cement floor, completing a bathroom vanity, and installing a heater on the electronic reader board. Similkameen Country would also like to use the funds to purchase an upgraded computer system, desktop publishing and a colour laser printer for “in house” specialized brochures. The current lease on the Info Centre expires on Sept. 30.

Included in the lease is the operation of the reader board, which the village would like to take over control of, an item that was identified in the village’s strategic planning session. Council was also asked to approve the Strategic Community Investment Funds agreement. The SCIF is made up of two components, the Traffic Fine Revenue Sharing grant which is funded from traffic and court induced fines that are distributed to municipalities under 5,000 in population that pay for police services directly. The second part is the Small Community Grant, which Keremeos receives.The grant amount is based on a formula established by the province. Keremeos would benefit by a grant averaging approximately $370,504 per year. Council approved the agreement. The third item on the agenda was to deal with the awarding of the construction contract for the village’s road reconstruction projects. Because of late arriving information, the matter had to be tabled until the regular meeting of council on April 2.

Strategic Community Investment Fund invests $65 million in B.C. communities Ministry of Community, Sport and Community Development Communities across British Columbia will be sharing more than $65 million in funding with the latest instalments of the Strategic Community Investment Fund (SCIF) and Climate Action Revenue Incentive Program (CARIP), announced Ida Chong, Minister of Community, Sport and Cultural Development last week.

The province is providing $30 million in Small Community and Regional District grants and $30 million in net traffic fine revenues through the Strategic Community Investment Fund. Communities that have signed the Climate Action Charter and report publicly on their progress toward meeting their climate action goals will receive a grant equivalent to 100 per cent of the carbon tax they pay directly, for a total of more than $5 million provincewide.

Federal budget brings changes to cross border allowances By Steve Arstad news@keremeosreview.com Federal budget changes announced on Mar. 29 will see duty free limits rise for cross border travellers. The change, announced by Minister Flaherty is meant to reduce border congestion during peak periods, and thereby help improve tourism visits to Canada over the long term.

Under the government announced changes, the new Canadian duty free customs allowances for travellers will be $200 for trips after 24 hours and $800 after 48 hours. These changes will be effective on June 1. The previous two-tiered allowance system had created confusion amongst the travelling public, and was a factor in traffic congestion at our borders.

Scrapping bylaw is the wrong move The regional district board recently pondered, once again, the fate of the smoke control bylaw, originally discussed at the board level prior to last November’s civic elections. This time the issue came back to the newly elected board with a recommendation to rescind third reading and abandon the bylaw, under the premise that not all directors were in favour of endorsing it. A new recommendation, to “have staff clarify service participants, boundaries, and costs and return the bylaws for third reading to the June 7 board meeting,” has been put forward for directors to deal with in two months. Former regional district air quality manager Janice Johnson spent five years working with the regional district in both volunteer and paid positions to create the bylaw currently being debated by the board. That represents a lot of time, effort - and taxpayers money that now appears to be headed for oblivion, if things continue on the present course. The staff recommendation to scrap the bylaw because agreement on the document isn’t universal doesn’t make sense. The majority of directors appear to favour the bylaw as a starting point from which to educate, inform and control bad burning practises. It doesn’t seek to eliminate burning so much as to ensure that it is done properly. While we aren’t normally in favour yet another piece of legislation that will be difficult to enforce, air quality has been ranked as a high priority by regional district residents. When one adds that to the amount of time, energy and money that has already gone into this legislation, it seems that it would be counterproductive and wasteful for the directors to scrap it now.

Paper bills and invoices should be normal part of business practise By Steve Arstad The Review Is it just me, or is business getting too casual for their own good when it comes to providing statements these days? Last July, I had some dental work done. An assessment was made and submitted to my medical services plan by my dentist - pretty routine stuff. I had the work done, and was billed my portion for the remainder of the bill. No big deal. I avoid dentists, so I wasn’t in a big hurry to go back, especially since I had just had a substantial amount of work done. I finally returned to the dentist’s chair in early January for a routine cleaning. I stopped at reception to pay my portion of the bill. “Oh, you don’t owe anything,” said the receptionist, “you apparently overpaid your portion of the last bill. You have a balance of $190, so we’ll just deduct what you owe from that.”

I was in a hurry, so I left before I had a chance to think about it. When I did, I was angry. Basically, the dentist withheld almost 200 dollars of my money for six months. I never received a statement, phone call, or anything indicating I had a balance - a substantial amount that would have been much more beneficial in my pocket than my dentist’s. I phoned the office a couple of days later to ask what their policy was. “If there is a credit balance we usually leave it until your next visit,” came the reply. “What would happen if I had died, or moved in the meantime?” I asked. “I had no idea you were holding this money.” “Well - we haven’t come across that situation yet,” came the reply. I asked the receptionist to send a cheque for the remainder, finding this business practice unacceptable to me. What would make a business think that it is

all right to withold overpayments, without even telling the patient that he / she had overpaid? To top it off, when I got the cheque, there was a bill enclosed for the deductible portion of my medical insurance. I’m thinking I will hang on to the bill, and see how long they are willing to wait for their money. I have a feeling it won’t be as long as they were willing to hold on to mine. Iin another case, I called the provider of my roadside assistance program after realizing that my annual membership had expired. “Oh, that was automatically renewed on your credit card,” came the reply to my inquiry - a month ago. Who knew? I never recieved notice of the renewal, nor have I yet received any documentation outlining what I paid, or what I was paying for this year. What’s with this casual attitude towards letting people know where they stand financially? I thought

times were tight for most people financially. I know I would rather have what owed to me in my hot little hands - much the same way as I’m sure these businesses would rather be paid in full rather than wait until the next time I patronize them. Finally, there is the common practice of business these days to make customers pay for a paper bill. Computers aren’t universal, nor is the internet - so why is this practice allowed? Paper is a physical thing. It attracts attention, where a bill that shows up as email is simply another electronic message. Personally, I am reluctant to see a paperless society. It’s bad enough when all you have to depend on is an electronic notice. It seems to me that if we get used to that, it will be a lot easier for businesses with questionable accounting practices to “neglect” to keep us informed about aspects of our accounts that they would prefer we not know about.

We feared service cuts, says former 911 dispatcher To the Editor: As a former dispatcher of the regional 911 dispatch center, this was one of our greatest concerns - that once the South Okanagan was swallowed up in the Kelowna Center, all the services we provided would disappear. You don’t know what you’ve had til it’s gone! The daily radio checks were to ensure that the radio system was working properly. With the new system, no one knows there is a problem until it doesn’t work, and who knows how long it’s been down for. What harm is it to spend 20 minutes twice a day to ensure everyone’s system is in working order? You certainly don’t want to be relying on iffy backup systems in the middle of an emergency. It’s not an excuse, to say your center is too busy - then hire more staff. But then it would be hard to justify this move an economical, wouldn’t it? So, instead

service suffers. I really take exception to the excuse that the system is still going through a transition. Something as important as your 9-1-1 system should have had all these little kinks worked out before it was turned over to Kelowna. This is an emergency service, not a call center - and that’s about the amount of respect it’s been given. Your fire department members (who are taxpayers as well) are putting their lives on the line for their communities. The least you can expect is to have your frontline service working for you. We may have had old equipment and dispatched without the aid of a computer, used paper and pencil - but we did a damn fine job. Do you really think technology is doing a better job than what we did? I don’t think so. Dawne Young, Penticton

Open letter commends province for park decision To the Editor: Dear Mr. Lake, Thank you for withdrawing your support for the national park. I am a newly elected director for RDOS, Regional District Okanagan Similkameen and I represent Area “B”, Cawston Rural. We are an agricultural based community and the National Park would consume close to 50 per cent of our area. I’m told that the park area would be taking approximately 2,000 acres away from the Agriculture Land Reserve; close to 1,000 acres is prime agriculture land in our Area “B” from the U.S. border up to the Richter Pass of Highway #3. Removal of this land from the ALR would be devastating to B.C.’s agriculture industry and devastating to the ranching industry for the South Okanagan and Similkameen region. This is the one main ranch affected but there are 11 more ranches affected also. Ranching and agriculture in general have a tough time already competing with the desire for residential land, with the inflated land prices of the Okanagan and south Similkameen valleys. The national park would create more economy for the tourism industry but only by taking it away from the agriculture industry. It would also create more competition for the land surrounding the park which in turn makes all agriculture less economical. While I was campaigning for the director’s position I found out that the national park was a major concern for our residents. It turned out that about 90 per cent of the locals did not want a park and the few that did only wanted it because they didn’t want to see the land chopped up for residential lots. I began to campaign against the national park

and the removal of the ALR lands. My opponent, who avoided the park issue, also had done an extensive door to door campaign and she later told me that she found 60 residents who were pro-park. This would be about five per cent of our population in favour of the park. I have attended all of Chloe O’Loughlin’s speeches on benefits of the national park and she states that only 21 per cent in our area strongly oppose the park. This could be somewhat true but she fails to say that the other 75 per cent are opposed to the park. I also work with and have had meetings with some of the First Nations people who are strongly opposed to the park and it saddens me to see Parks Canada offer them a lot of money to see if they will change their minds. I don’t see any money offered for a study on the agricultural lands or with the ranchers in general. I don’t think people understand how devastating the effect is to all the other ranchers, to lose the major beef production of our area. Already auction yards and machinery dealerships are moving farther away creating more expenses for our ranchers. In summary, along with the lack of funding for our national parks due to our increasing national debt, the lack of business and local government support, the lack of First Nations support, the lack of local resident support and the devastation of the agriculture industry, I commend you and the BC Government on their decision not to support the national park. Sincerely, George Bush, Director, Area “B” Note: This letter reflects the personal views of Mr. Bush, and is in no way the opinion of the regionial district.

Local program offers violence prevention help in the Similkameen To the Editor: Two weeks ago the Review announced the launch of a new area-wide program called “Change for Good”. Change for Good officially introduced itself with a meeting and film showing at Penticton’s Okanagan College campus on March 28. I was there. So were others from the Keremeos area. The program offers free counseling and support to men who are aware of their abusive behaviors to their partners or children, and who want to stop those behavior patterns. In a time when not all news is good, this is “good news”! First, it’s good news that change is possible. Second, it’s good news that positive, supportive help is available. And third, it’s good news that you do not have to go to Penticton to benefit from the Change for Good service. It’s available right here in Keremeos, as well

as alternative locations, beginning this month. For details, you can contact Rhea, the program’s coordinator, confidentially, at 250-488-5939 or at sos_change4good@yahoo.ca As coordinator of both RCMP Victim Services and the Lower Similkameen’s Proactive Violence Prevention Project (PVPP), I encourage men with abusive behaviors or tendencies to take advantage of this supportive program, both for your own wellbeing and for your family’s. And I encourage anyone who knows of a family member, friend, or acquaintance whose behavior is abusive or violent, to pass this information along to him, with your encouragement and support. It’s a good thing to do. And the right thing. It’s a way to “practice kindness”. Ron Shonk, Keremeos More letters continued on page 18

New management provides new direction for pizza business By Steve Arstad news@keremeosreview.com Trevor Milton has been working hard since January to satisfy the Lower Similkameen’s appetite for pizza. The new manager of Me and Bok Boks Pizza (currently under lease by Ravneet Dhaliwal) on Seventh Avenue in Keremeos began his career as a prep cook, eventually becoming cook for the former Crow Bar and Grill establishment in Keremeos. The opportunity to run Bok Bok’s came up in January, and Milton has been working hard since then to re-establish the restaurant’s business after several months of eratic operating hours. “I’m trying to be consistent with my hours,” Milton admits, noting that the food service busi-

ness in Keremeos has had some high and low points through the last three months. “I’m open from 11:30 a.m. until 8 p.m Monday through Friday, Saturday 11:30 a.m. until 9 p.m., and Sunday from 2 a.m. until 7 p.m.,” Milton said. Milton specializes in pizza, but also has lasagna and butter chicken on the menu, with hopes to expand both the restaurant and the menu sometime in the future. He uses fresh local produce when available, and makes the dough and sauce in-house. Even the cheese is hand grated in the shop. “There is a big demand for delivery service,” Milton said, “I’m looking for someone to help me out with that.” Me and Bok Boks also provides free internet to customers, something tourists in the village will appreciate.

Smoke control bylaw’s intent is to raise awareness, encourage responsible burning practices Former Air Quality Coordinator Janice Johnson comments on the reasoning behind the regional district’s smoke control bylaw Contributed by Janice Johnson Basically the Smoke Control Bylaw was written in such a way that it is a bylaw to encourage responsible burning. The previous board had a workshop and several meetings to develop the wording. I don’t understand why a municipal or an area director would not want to adopt a smoke control bylaw. It provides an easy means to encourage efficient burning practices and a means to protect the health of its citizens from wood smoke, especially those who are most vulnerable. One poor burning wood stove can pollute many blocks where the particulate matter seeps into homes. It has been known now for over 10 years the serious health impacts from wood smoke. Infants and children are most vulnerable, as is those with pre-existing heart and lung disease. But everyone is affected. There are a number of tools now to help a resident heating with wood to burn efficiently, which means only a heat wave coming from their chimney. The bylaw can help provide that education to those who are not aware. It is important that those living higher up from the valley bottom, such as in the Anarchist Mountain area, also be provided the education through this bylaw to burn efficiently, because when they don’t that pollution not only affects their family and neighbors but also affect those living on the valley bottom. The RDOS Smoke Control Bylaw covers off all types of burning while municipalities in the RDOS region have no bylaws that encourage good burning practices with wood heating, with some municipalities allowing the burning of yard waste which smolders and smokes for

days. Some municipalities and rural areas have open air burning bylaws, with a nuisance clause that the fire department enforces. It is expensive for a fire department to go out on calls to nuisance smoke related fires. To save tax dollars and not tie up fire departments, the RDOS Smoke Control Bylaw is enforced by a bylaw officer, and the bylaw officer provides the education. This bylaw is straight forward and easy to understand and covers off wood heating and open air burning and

hopefully helps to eliminate garbage burning. With every rural area and municipality adopting a smoke control bylaw, everyone benefits from the same level of protection. The provincial Open Burning Smoke Control Regulation does not cover off back yard burning or wood heating. The RDOS Smoke Control Bylaw is a great step towards keeping air clean, especially during the winter months when valley communities experience inversion conditions.

sports Slo pitch players from three teams showed up in additon to the Kobau Koyotes girls team to give Kobau Park a spring cleanup on Mar. 31. The girls, who helped a lot hauling leaves, were part of roughly 25 volunteers who worked from 9 a.m. until noon. A new memorial bench was installed and picnic tables set out. The day’s efforts were marred on Saturday night when vandals cut the lock holding one of the picnic tables in place and threw it in a fire. (photo below) “It’s really sad to have this happen after the efforts of everyone to clean the park up,” said spokeperson Marie Marven. Residents are also being asked to keep their motorized vehicles out of the ball fields.

Understanding the mystery of cosmic rays

In 1896 Henri Becquerel did an experiment that changed the world. He securely wrapped a photographic plate in sheets of thick, black paper, so that no light could get to it, and then placed a sample containing uranium compounds on top, outside the wrapping, and left it for a few hours. When he developed the photographic plate, he found a dark silhouette of his chemical sample printed on it. He concluded that the uranium sample was giving off rays that

passed through the paper and fogged the plate. He had discovered radioactivity. We now know that there are some atoms, usually large ones, which are not stable, and spontaneously, or as the result of being hit by something, break into smaller bits, giving off high-energy waves and particles. It eventually became clear that radioactive elements are distributed throughout the Earth, and the high temperatures in its core are due partly to the heat given off by decaying radioactive material. I n 1 9 1 2 Vi c t o r Hess made a very dangerous high-altitude ascent in a balloon, taking a radiation detector with him. He measured the level of radiation and how it changed as the balloon got higher and

higher. If the radiation was coming from radioactive elements in the ground, radiation levels would fall as the balloon got higher, and further from the radioactive elements. However, what he found was the opposite; as he got higher, the radiation level increased. He concluded that although there is radiation coming from the ground, there is much more coming in from space and being partially blocked by the atmosphere, so as one gets higher the dose rate goes up. We now call this radiation ĂŹcosmic raysĂŽ. They are mainly extremely high-energy fragments of atoms. There followed some very ingenious experiments to find out more. One of them was to make stacks of many layers of photographic film, and to send them up in rockets and bal-

loons. On some lucky occasions a cosmic ray would draw a path down through all the layers of film. Sometimes the cosmic ray particle would hit an atom of the material making up the film cube, and produce a shower of fragments. We have found out that the cosmic ray particles are moving at between 45 and 99.6 per cent of the speed of light. One particle “a fragment of an atom� can have the energy of a baseball moving at almost 200 km/h. The big question is where would particles get accelerated to such high speeds? Thanks to their meandering route to us through our galaxy, measuring the direction doesn’t tell us where the cosmic rays are coming from. However, we know that stars like the Sun produce lower-energy cosmic

rays. Higher-energy ones are accelerated by supernovae exploding stars, and by black holes. Others gradually gain speed as they are pushed to and fro by the magnetic field of the Milky Way. Here on the Earth’s surface we are largely protected from cosmic rays, but they are a problem we need to solve in order to carry out manned space missions to other planets. Venus and Jupiter are still conspicuous in the west after sunset, although Jupiter is now getting lower in the sky. Mars is high in the Southeast; Saturn rises about 9 pm. The Moon will be full on the 6th.

Wilf Miller recalls the past in Castor, Alberta

Photo contributed

The above photo is a copy of one of Wilf Miller’s oil paintings of his old farm. Miller says, “There is 640 acres of land and Lanes Lake in the distance. Ducks Unlimited own it now. The buildings are allgone and its gone back to the wilds again for hunting. I’d like the painting back.” Carry me back to Castor, Alberta There’s where the wheat and the oats and barley grow There’s where the birds warble sweet as cattle rustle There’s where this old pioneer’s son has longed to go. There’s where I laboured so hard for my old father day after day in the fields of golden grain No place on earth do I love more sincerely Than the plains of Alberta, the place where I was born. - By Wilf Miller

Mellencamp to headline SOEC Grammy award winning rock singer appears June 14 By Steve Arstad news@keremeosreview.com Penticton will play host to rock singer - songwriter John Mellencamp on June 14 at the South Okanagan Events Centre. Penticton is the first date in Mellencamp’s No Better Than This Canadian tour. Mellencamp will be accompanied by the veteran Canadian alternative country / blues/ folk/ rock group Cowboy Junkies. Mellencamp - known earlier in his career alternatively as John Cougar and John Cougar Mellencamp - has sold 40 million albums worldwide, amassing 22 top 40 hits through a career spanning four decades. His music was a mainstay of top 30 radio station airplay throughout the 1980’s, with a string of hits including the grammy winning Hurts So Good. Other well known hits from that era include Jack and Diane, Pink Houses, Authority Song, Small Town, R.O.C.K. in the U.S.A., and Paper in Fire. Mellencamp’s 2012 Canadian tour headlines his latest album - No Better Than This - produced by T-Bone Burnett. The album was recorded in musically historic locations in Georgia, Tennessee and Texas. Using a 1955 Ampex recording machine and only one microphone, the album was recorded completely in mono, and has received critical acclaim since its release in 2010. Mellencamp is known for his political activism, criticizing the Reagan and both Bush adminsistrations in addition to helping to organize the first Farm Aid benefit along with Willie Nelson and Neil Young in 1985. Farm aid concerts continue to raise money ($39 million to date) for struggling family farmers. Mellencamp’s career is multi-faceted; he has also achieved some acclaim as an artist and actor. Most recently, he has been collaborating with T-Bone Burnett and Stephen King to produce a musical called Ghost Brothers of Darkland County, with a three CD/book package scheduled for release on May 22 this year. Mellencamp was divorced from his third wife, Elaine Irwin last year, and has since gone public with his relationship with actress Meg Ryan. Mellencamp last appeared in the Okanagan in 2008, playing Kelowna’s Prospera Place with musical guest Tom Cochrane and Red Ryder. The Cowboy Junkies have been veterans on the Canadian music scene since 1985. Nominated for group of the year at the 1990 and 1991 Juno Awards, the band is best known for hits Angel Mine, Anniversary Song and A Common Disaster. Tickets for the Penticton performance began selling on March 30.They can be purchased online at www.ValleyFirstTix.com by telephone at 1-877-SOEC-TIX (763-2849) or in person at the SOEC box office and the Penticton and Wine Country Visitor Centre.

Litter and garbage present a threat to wildlife By Lorie Chortyk Paw Prints April is Wildlife Awareness Month and the BC SPCA would like to do a little trash talking. Whether they eat it, get entangled in it or are poisoned by it, wild animals are injured or killed by garbage every single day. With spring (and spring cleaning) upon us, now is the perfect time to reflect on the impact our trash has on wildlife and what we can do to help. Some people just don’t see the harm in littering or not recycling, but the truth is that, in addition to being bad for the environment, even a single piece of litter can be very dangerous to wild animals. And not all littering is intentional. Garbage can easily be spilled when the truck comes around on pick-up day, or animals such as crows, raccoons and skunks can get into a trash bag and spread garbage around as they forage for food. Trash on the ground harms birds and land animals, but can also wash into storm drains and eventu-

ally end up in streams, rivers, lakes and oceans, where it causes further injury to aquatic animals. Items such as cigarette butts, plastic caps and lids, and plastic bags are choking hazards. Should an animal mistake a plastic cap for food and manage to swallow it, the danger isn’t over – these items can cause lifethreatening blockages of the animal’s digestive system. Plastic items can also accumulate in the stomach, preventing the animal from eating real food. Eventually they die with stomachs full of plastic. Jars and bottles can also become death traps for unsuspecting animals who try to get at the food scraps inside. Once trapped, animals struggle to remove the item but if unsuccessful, starve to death. Animals can also be injured and suffer deep neck wounds as they frantically try to free themselves. Out in the water items like six-pack rings and discarded fishing line can entangle birds, fish, turtles and other wildlife, causing death by strangulation or drowning. These items can

also wrap tightly and painfully around animals, cutting into wings and legs and preventing them from feeding or moving properly. Animals can develop fatal infections, lose limbs or starve. The good news is that we can all make a difference. The SPCA suggests taking these simple actions: • Recycle as many plastic products as you can. • Buy things with less packaging. • Cut all six-pack rings so animals can’t be caught in them. • Avoid products that come in plastics you cannot reuse or recycle. • Bring your own cloth bags when you go to the grocery store. • Ask your local grocery store to promote cloth bags. • Pack your lunch in a reusable lunch bag with reusable containers. • Use refillable water bottles instead of buying bottled water.

health LIVING GLUTEN FREE ON A BUDGET By Cathy Lauer - PART I How to stay on a gluten free diet without breaking the bank You have been on your gluten free diet for a while now and you are feeling so much better you cannot believe you didn’t change your diet years ago. It’s such a simple fix. You also notice that your grocery budget doesn’t go as far as it used to. Living gluten free can take a big bite out of your budget but there are ways of making that budget go further if you know where to shop and what to look for. One of the biggest budget breakers is fresh baked breads and other baked goods. Also, some of the packaged stuff really just doesn’t taste good and has little or no fibre or nutrition. There are some new brands on the market and their baked goods are not too bad if you are looking for the starchy white bread taste, but for those of us who prefer home baked flavour there is really nothing better than home baked. Don’t roll your eyes or tremble in fear. Baking gluten free at home is not all that daunting with so many good flour mixes out there and recipes galore. In a couple of hours you can have bread, muffins and cookies for the week that will be healthy, nutritious, tasty and less expensive than if you had bought them premade. If you are new to gluten free, find someone who is comfortable baking gluten free, whose baking you like, and ask what they do. Maybe they will share recipes or even teach you how to bake gluten free. Gluten free bakeries have also sprouted up in a number of towns and cities. Many offer good products at a reasonable price with a quality much better than what you get prepackaged in the store. Beware of bakeries who offer “gluten free” along side wheat breads and pastries. The chances of cross contamination are high and you may be setting yourself up to get sick. Gluten free pasta can be another big budget breaker and is often a challenge for people to get used to after wheat pasta. Before rice pasta became as good as it is today we ate Chinese rice noodles and rice sticks. Most oriental aisles carry a wide variety of shapes and sizes of rice noodles and bean thread. They are very inexpensive and some only need soaking in boiled water so they are ready very quickly. We have always liked rice noodles and j as long as they are not over cooked they are a great pasta substitute and easy on the budget. Corn pasta has also improved over the years and several varieties and brands are available. They are more expensive than Chinese rice noodles but a little less than brown rice pasta. I always stock up when they come on sale. Speaking of sales, most health food stores have a health club or even a gluten free club you can join. My health food store offers 20% off on the last Wednesday of every month or a special sale day. I like to stock up on pasta, pretzels and specialty flours that I use to add fibre or nutrition to baking. Some stores offer a special discount to gluten free shoppers after you buy a certain number of gluten free items. Check with your favourite health food store to find out what they have to offer. If there are topics you would like to see covered in my OK In Health’s column please feel free to contact me with your ideas.

HEALTHIEST STATE IN U.S.

A story out of the U.S. cites Vermont as the healthiest state in the country. This distinction is partially due to the high rate of high school graduation and a low incidence of infectious disease. The other reason was the considerable gains in the number of people who stopped smoking. Incidently, Mississippi was least healthiest in this study.

APRIL NATIONAL ORAL HEALTH MONTH

April is National Oral Health Month in Canada. The main theme is to highlight the idea that keeping a healthy mouth is an important part of leading a healthy life. Seeing your dentist twice yearly is important as well as brushing twice daily and flossing at least once daily to remove plaque and reduce the risk of cavities.

AUTISM AND THE GI

With the numbers of autism cases rising in Canada (up 600% in the past 20 years), research is starting to focus on the gastrointestinal (gi) symptoms of the disorder. Since 70% of autistic children have severe gi symptoms, there is a theory that the causes of autism might start in the gut. Autism causes much stress in families and it will be a great day when the cause and effective treatments are discovered.

NAILS CAN TELL THE TALE

It takes 6 months to grow a complete finger nail and 18 months for a toe nail. The appearance of the finger nail can sometimes indicate a health problem. Brittle, concave nails could indicate a lack of iron. Nails that are separating from the nail bed could mean a hyperactive thyroid gland. It’s a good idea to build a relationship with your pharmacist just as you do with your doctor. We’d like to be your pharmacist. Drop in soon.

Setting the record straight on per centages To the Editor: When I started school back in 1927 my teacher asked where my books were. My answer? “I ain’t got none.” My teacher asked, “Where did you learn that? Ain’t isn’t a word!” Well, when I passed into grade four some years later they taught us about per cent and they told us that per cent goes from one per cent to 100 per cent and 100 per cent means all of it, so you cannot go higher using per cent. You can double or triple your money, but what you got is 100 per cent of all you have. This is what they tell you even in college. So why in thunderation do these highly educated

250-498-2277

people on the TV still use 200 per cent or 300 per cent of something when it doesn’t exist? Now, I’ve worked hard most of my 90 years and I have a little more than $1,000 to show for it, but believe me what the actual figure is, it is 100 per cent of my wealth, regardless of how big the figure is. So, if all you educated computer experts put into your computers that if your pay check triples from $1,000 that is $3,000, but $3,000 is just 100 per cent of your new wage and not 300 per cent as some of you experts call it. P.S. - I don’t need a computer but I am comfortably retired. Wilf Miller, Keremeos

opinion Conservative budget plan - gut Canadian institutions, prop up big business By Alex Atamanenko MP, BC Southern Interior Alex Atamanenko, MP for BC Southern Interior, is not impressed with the direction taken by the Conservative government in the 2012 federal budget introduced today in the House of Commons. Atamanenko says the government’s plan to raise the eligible age for Old Age Security from 65 to 67 will force seniors to work two years extra while denying jobs for younger workers longer. It also forces low-income seniors in B.C. to live two more years on degrading rates of

social assistance. The budget also short changes the provinces by $31 billion with unilateral changes to the funding formula for federal health transfers, opening the door wide to privatization and two-tier health care. “These are massive cuts and the provinces cannot afford it,” said Atamanenko. “It is shameful that this government will balance the books on the backs of seniors who want to retire in dignity and make it a certainty that more families are left without a family doctor.” The BC Southern Interior MP is also worried that the

increase in duty free shopping to $200 for 24 hours and $400 for 48 hours will be sure to hurt businesses in border communities. “It’s a gift to American retailers and it undermines our tax base further,” said Atamanenko. “It seems the government’s only job creation strategy is to facilitate super tankers and dirty oil pipelines over our most pristine land and waterways while gutting environmental assessments,” declared Atamanenko, referring to Conservative plans for sweeping legislative and regulatory changes to environmental assessments and over $100

million in funding to expedite resource extraction. “Once again this government is taking care of its big business friends while completely ignoring the growing inequality that is plaguing this country.” “New Democrats have called for a reduction in the small business tax rates, real protection for retirement security and stable Health Care funding for the provinces,” concluded Atamanenko. “Instead we are seeing the reckless gutting of Canadian programs and a budget that actually plans for unemployment to grow.”

news

Nature Trust works to protect endangered Okanagan - Similkameen habitat “We see human use of the land as an acceptable activity,” MacNaughton said, noting that grazing, hunting and fishing is allowed on the Trust’s properties. “It makes sense to us in small communities to support local industry,” he said, noting that Nature Trust worked in partnership with local ranchers like the Cliftons in Keremeos and the Culligans from Okanagan Falls. Nature Trust also has strong ties to local sportsman’s associations. “We see partnering as a key to our success,” MacNaughton concluded, noting that Nature Trust has acquired 3,000 hectares of land in the South Okanagan, not including the recent purchase of the 2,000 acre Twin Lakes ranch property.

By Steve Arstad news@keremeosreview.com Nature Trust of BC is one of several organizations that are helping to preserve habitat in the South Okangan - Similkameen. “We have been active in the Okanagan since 1983, “said Carl MacNaughton, Conservation Land Manager for the Nature Trust of British Columbia. “We worked hard through the ‘90’s to preserve land around Vaseaux Lake,” MacNaughton said that Nature Trust’s land purchases were all made for conservation purposes. As a non-advocacy group, Nature Trust does not have a posititon regarding the national park proposal for the area.

Nature Trust has properties in the Vaseaux Lake area, the east side of Skaha Lake, Okanagan Falls, Cawston and Kilpoola Lake.

OBITUARY Life Celebration All Funeral Plans Accepted Bronze & Granite Cemetery markers

HANSON VIVIANNE: Vivianne passed away on Sunday, April 1st after a long struggle with ovarian cancer. Vivianne moved to the Similkameen Valley in 2002 to be with her husband George and to create a wonderful home and business. Vivianne was the face of Seven Stones Winery and worked diligently on its marketing and administration. She brought a sense of Áair to everything that she touched. One of her many passions was to source and sell one-of-a-kind jewelry in the Seven Stones tasting room. Vivianne previously owned a health food store in Prince George and had an active practice as a homeopath and herbalist. She often joked that “she moved to the Similkameen to sell liquid anti-oxidants” in the form of good wine. Vivianne has two loving sons; Rowan Wilson of Golden, BC and Colin Wilson from Prince George, BC. She was a big part of life with stepson Christopher Riemer (George’s son) from Whitehorse, Yukon. Family and friends are invited to remember Vivianne at a celebration of her life on Sunday, April 15th between 1pm and 5pm at the Seven Stones property. The celebration will pay tribute to this remarkable and wonderful woman with food, stories and special memories about Vivianne.
