Not enough doctors It would be difficult for another doctor to practice in Princeton due to the number of patients, according to a local doctor Michaela Garstin editor@similkameenspotlight.com

Princeton’s desperate need for a new doctor became obvious when it was announced PGH’s emergency department would close four times a week starting May 1. Interior Health Authority, the organization responsible for recruiting doctors to Princeton, has been searching for a new doctor but has yet to find one. This begs the question - why is it taking so long to find another doctor for Princeton? This is a complicated question. The doctor shortage has partly to do with Canada’s strict rules on hiring foreign doctors and the fact that most young graduates prefer to work in large cities. But Princeton is in a unique situation, different than other B.C. communities. Is there room for another doctor in Princeton? Princeton Hospital’s emergency department will be closed from midnight to 8 a.m. Monday to Friday starting May 1. These scheduled closures are likely to last a year, said Interior Health when they made the announcement on

April 2 at a Princeton town council meeting. Another doctor is needed to fill these emergency department shifts because the three doctors currently in Princeton can’t cover the shifts completely. “There aren’t enough patients for four doctors in Princeton,” said Princeton’s newest doctor Evaristus Idanwekhai, more commonly known as Dr. Eva. He has been practicing in Princeton for two years. “If a doctor came to Princeton to look after the ER only, he wouldn’t survive.” Because the doctors have individual clinics an additional doctor would not get enough patients, Eva said. If all the doctors worked in the same place, two more doctors would be able to work in Princeton, in addition to the three already here, he added. And another doctor is key to running the emergency room full time. Interior Health will be talking to Princeton’s doctors within the next month to try to come up with a solution to the doctor shortage. “In Princeton, we have fee-for-service, payment for being on-call and additional funds to encourage the physicians to keep the emergency room open during scheduled hours,” said Dr. Jon Slater, senior medical director, acute services west for Interior Health. “We would use all of these mechanisms to attract people.” The new doctor could also offer industries in town occupational health advice, he said.

National Park meeting draws passionate crowd Michaela Garstin editor@similkameenspotlight.com

A meeting about the benefits of a proposed national park in the South Okanagan packed a room at the Riverside Centre on April 3, with both supporters and opponents having their say. The crowd - consisting of hunters, ranchers, environmentalists, outdoor recreation users, business owners and others - listened to a presentation by Chloe O’Loughlin from the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society about

how the proposed national park could benefit the South Okanagan. She said polls have shown the majority of people in the area support a national park, and the creation of one would increase tourism spending by $49 million a year and provide 570 new full-time jobs. Princeton could benefit from being a “gateway community” to the national park by offering tourists places to stay and eat before they get to their destination, she said.

Princeton residents and Upper Similkameen band members crowded into the high school’s gym for the second annual Upper Similkameen Spirit Festival from April 6 to 8. The three-day powwow was extended from last year because of its success. Drum groups played as dancers from all over B.C. competed for specials in Men’s Traditional, Women’s Traditional, Men’s Grass, Women’s Jingle, Team Boys Combined and Team Girls Combined. Groups travelled from as far away as Williams Lake to take part. Even the youngest children - some under a year old - danced in regalia at the festival. Artists were on site making dream catchers and beaded crafts to sell. First Nations food was surved at the concession, including elk stew and bannock. An art exhibit with colourful paintings and statues was displayed.

Princeton volunteer Joyce Fraser was one of 34 British Columbians to win a 2012 B.C. Community Achievement Award honouring people who have made a significant contribution to their community. In 1973 Fraser saw a need in Princeton for transportation and home support for seniors. She established and managed the Princeton and District Community Services Society for 29 years. “From creating a training centre for the developmentally disabled to supportive housing, Joyce has had a remarkable effect on her community,” the provincial government said when announcing the awards. “I started delivering prescriptions for people with no cars. I realized there was a lot of people who needed help,” said Fraser, who quit her job at a drug store to volunteer full time. Her decade-long volunteer work with the community took off after she went to Victoria to get funding. Fraser, who is now retired, opened the Mini Chef Restaurant in Princeton, a place where handicapped people helped make and serve the food. “People travelled from Vancouver to eat there. It was a huge success,” she Princeton volunteers Joyce Fraser and husband Austin Fraser.

PARK - feasibility study should be public

The proposed national park which would likely be located between Keremeos and Oliver would affect 12 ranchers. “I’ve taken offence at some of the issues you’ve raised, indicating grazing could still be allowed in [the national park] and that ranchers could subdivide their property or sell it for industrial or residential uses,” said local rancher Linda Allison, who stood up to speak after the presentation. Ranchers currently pay for grazing on Crown land, but this would be more tightly controlled if a national park went in, she said.

Town council announces priorities Michaela Garstin editor@similkameenspotlight.com

Princeton mayor and council have announced their priorities for this year and next. They took part in a workshop that helped them come up with the following priorities, which could be changed at any time depending on what’s going on in town. Town hall office relocation Princeton needs a new, larger town hall to accommodate the people who work there, said deputy mayor Jason Earle, who is filling in for Mayor Fred Thomas while he is sick. “We’re exploring our options on either renovating or relocating to fix the town hall problem,� Earle said. Building a new town hall was in the plans but was stopped for financial reasons, he said.

The plans are in the initial stages, so it is too early to know whether town hall will be renovated or moved entirely. Urban deer management Princeton is following the steps in the government-produced Urban Ungulate Conflict Analysis, and is looking after education about urban deer and bylaw enforcement, Earle said. One Princeton resident has been fined for feeding deer so far, he added. Now that an educational brochure has been sent out, town council is forming an urban deer management committee that will begin in May. Earle is attending a meeting about urban deer control in Cranbrook this month to get more information about the next steps to take. Service capacity review Town council is hiring an outside party to go over how town hall is run to see if there are any ways to improve efficiency. One area that needs improvement is Princeton’s out-of-date zoning bylaws. “We have a lot of people coming into see council about variances on set-backs on secondary suites,� Earle said, adding that the process could be made more efficient. Hospital business case development “I’ve been on council for four years, I’ve been listening to Interior Health with their strategies for four years - now they’ve come and told us these strategies haven’t worked,� Earle said. A town advocacy committee is in the works so council can help Interior Health find solutions, he added. Council’s concerns about the hospital rose after an announcement April 2 that the hospital will be closed four times a week starting May 1.

Airport business plan update Princeton council is looking at land use planning for the airport, including whether to make it more prone for airport-related business or more residential. “We have a fantastic facility there. It has a lot of potential,� Earle said. Other locations in Princeton such as the industrial park already have a land use plan, and the airport is next on the list.

YourOPINION

ER closures lead to sluggish housing market Dear Editor, I am in complete dismay to hear of the hospital emergency room closure. We moved here to work at this growing mine and it IS growing. Hundreds of people are employed there and many commute to Penticton and various areas where there is reliable medical services. YOU - whoever you are - making these decisions with disregard to our safety should be held responsible if and when there is a life threatening injury.

Even a cruise ship has a doctor. My God this is 2012. It seems your plan is that you will be unable to respond, and don’t see the need on a full time basis. Accidents and catastrophes are not on your schedule. I am appalled. I see why our real estate market is so sluggish here, as my family would like to live here as well, EXCEPT for the medical issues here. It is unfortunate we are going backward when we have such a wonderful opportunity to go forward.

If there is such a shortage of doctors then WHY is the government not encouraging MORE affordable education for our young? I am sure the medical veterans would agree to assist in some training and resources before we all have to move to the cities. I am so disappointed as we were planning on building here in beautiful little Princeton... now I am in doubt. Mavis Ekman Princeton

Ranchers resistant to change, say no to national park Dear Editor, April 3, I attended the CPAWS (Canadian Parks & Wilderness Society) Presentation at the Riverside Centre regarding the possibility of a National Park in the Similkameen and left the presentation with whole bunch of unanswered questions. Foremost, what does this community really want and what do we want this community to look like? It is clear we do not want an aquatic centre and that is reiterated with a nauseating regularity in letters to the editor. At yesterday’s meeting a number of people spoke against the national park. Foremost, among the nay sayers was a lobby from a group of cattle ranchers. Cattle ranchers are known for there resistance to change. They are a stoic, self made breed of cat that do not want change at any cost. And in another world that might work, but today in a community that is at risk of dying that is not possible. People are not flocking or relocating to Princeton and Area H in record numbers. As a matter of fact the population is decreasing. In all other jurisdictions in the southern Okanagan the population is on the

increase. Small business is having difficulty, schools are facing declining enrolment, and need I mention health care. Every other evening the Princeton Hospital is featured on the news describing the latest emergency closure. This community is desperate for growth in order to maintain the few amenities we have and not lose more. We need to attract and keep the young families we have in this community, but our collective actions continue to do the exact opposite. Younger folks - those under 50 - that I talk to are just shaking their collective heads. “If this is the wisdom of the elders, (saying “NO” to everything) I want nothing of it and will be leaving”. A community with a future is not possible without young families. They make possible the sustainability of a community, plain and simple. With all due respect, retired and ageing folks, even though we would like to believe the opposite, do not foster tremendous growth in a community. Communities grow when schools grow, when hospital have obstetric capabilities, when recreational facilities are supported,

and on and on. I believe we need to make a few decisions that will inspire some growth in this community, so as to be able to afford a few amenities. We then may be able to attract some of the health care professionals we are in desperate need of and perhaps keep this hospital open. There is a bigger picture here than just the needs of a few cattle ranchers objecting to change. We are talking about the survival of a community. We can keep saying “No” to every initiative that comes through our valley and our population will continue to slowly disappear. We are at risk of becoming the “endangered species” if we do not make some progressive moves. I am supporting the National Park initiative because of the potential positive spinoffs it can bring to the region, in addition to projected annual revenues of $37 million. I urge the rest of you to speak up and do the same. I am proud of this community and want it to grow and realize its potential. Local rancher, Charles Weber.

Editor’s note: This letter was written to Terry Lake, MLA Kamloops-North Thompson, minister of environment.

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 was only because they didn’t want to see the land chopped up for residential lots. I began to campaign against the National Park and the removing of the ALR lands. My opponent who avoided the Park issue also had done an extensive door-todoor 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.

Hospital stats released by IHA Michaela Garstin editor@similkameenspotlight.com

Interior Health Authority released statistics about Princeton Hospital’s emergency department in a report to town council. Around seven per cent of unscheduled emergency room visits happen from midnight to 8 a.m., according to Interior Health data from 2011 to 2012. The smallest number of visits - under one per cent - are by people whose lives are in danger or who may lose a limb, requiring “immediate aggressive interventions.” Two per cent of people arriving at the hospital are in serious need of help, with their life or limb potentially in danger. They require rapid medical intervention. On average, one person is brought to the hospital in very serious condition from midnight to 8 a.m. Monday to Thusday. Seventeen per cent of visits are “urgent” conditions that could progress to a serious problem requiring emergency intervention. The largest number of visits - 41 per cent - are classified as “less urgent,” when a condition is related to patient age, distress or when care is needed in one to two hours, while 32 per cent of cases are classified “non-urgent.”

Another doctor needed Princeton needs a new doctor who can look after the emergency room by him or herself and be willing to go on-call during the night. But this new doctor - to add to the three who already practice here - is hard to find, according to Interior Health. “What we’re looking for is someone who has a good general background in medicine, who has the confidence and the competence to deal with an emergency situation,” Dr. Jon Slater, senior medical director, acute services west for Interior Health, adding that a newly graduated doctor could be appropriate. “[Emergency situations] aren’t going to happen often in Princeton, but about once or twice or month someone needs to be on with advance emergency skills.” The doctor would be the head of a team that includes nurses and X-ray technicians without any backup readily available, he said. Interior Health’s problem finding a doctor to cover Princeton Hospital’s emergency department was made apparent at a town council meeting April 2 when it was announced the hospital would be closed from midnight to 8 a.m. Monday to Thursday starting on May 1. The closures are expected to last a year, a representative said.

Princeton’s miniatures

English-style architecture is constantly on the mind of Princeton artist Brian Dolman as he painstakingly creates tiny intricate castles, manors, shops and cathedrals. He uses thousand of pieces of hand-cut wood for each building - a process that takes at least 150 hours for the simplest house. Despite developing arthritis in his hands, the self-taught artist designs miniature doors, windows, chimneys and even signs. “Each building is unique, I don’t have anything mapped out. I just start building from memory,” Dolman says. “But the buildings are still quite precise.” One-eighth of an inch of the tiny houses equals a foot in real life. He has created around 60 miniatures since he began 12 years ago, storing most at home in a large display. He currently has a window display at Image Emporium with a few of his favouMichaela Garstin/Spotlight rites mounted. Princeton artist Brian Dolman stands behind his tiny houses displayed at Image Emporium. “Some of the buildings are finished inside.

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 B.C. Government on their decision not to support the National Park. This is a letter written by myself and in no way reflects the opinion of the RDOS. George Bush Director Area B

Hunting and grazing could be allowed Dear Editor, More public presentations on the Okanagan national park proposal were scheduled last week in Princeton and Hedley. Many opponents fear either that a park would end hunting on the land comprising it, or that it would end grazing. They should re-consider. Recent decisions by the federal government regarding two national park projects in eastern Canada indicate that, for better or worse, such concerns may soon be unfounded. It’s true that the guiding principles and operational policies for national parks have long prohibited non-native hunting, except for transitional periods where locals depended on it for subsistence. Under the National Parks Act, grazing by domesticated animals is also prohibited.The government, however, is apparently abandoning those guidelines. In 2010, at the insistence of Labrador hunters and of the pro-

vincial government, it signed an agreement for a new Mealy Mountains national park that, if finalized, will open the park permanently to “traditional” (not “subsistence”) hunting by locals including the entire population of the greater Happy Valley-Goose Bay metropolitan area. This comprises some 10,000 people, the majority of whom are non-native. The federal government went further later that year, when it signed an understanding with Nova Scotia to establish Sable Island NP. The island is home to a large number of grazers (horses) introduced in the 1800s. As alien megafauna which trample its native grasses, spook its nursing seals, and crush its nesting birds’ eggs. Parks Canada’s guiding principles and operational policies are clear that they would have to go when the park is finalized. Yet in announcing the agreement, the federal minister referred

specifically to preserving their presence. There was no science behind it. A significant number of people simply wanted them kept there, and that sufficed. In short, whatever the “rulebook” says, it’s no longer being applied. There’s not even been any significant push-back from environmental organizations. Barring an epiphany on the part of Parks Canada before these changes become official, hunting by locals and grazing by exotic species thus look set to become acceptable practices within national parks. Other heretofore banned activities may, too, if their supporters prove vocal enough. At this point, any claim that any activity would be prohibited in a future Okanagan national park - or elsewhere would appear groundless.It’s just a matter of being insistent. John O’Driscoll

Deer are not capable of “brutality” Dear Editor, The question of Princeton’s “town” deer and wildlife in general, really comes down to personal attitudes and perceptions! Attitudes color our perception of events! I was astonished by the reference in one of last week’s letters to a “brutal” attack of an elderly man by a deer. Brutal is a powerful, emotional adjective, normally reserved for a heinous attack – deliberate, cruel and coldhearted. If some people truly believe that deer are capable of such malice, there is little to one can say to change these attitudes.Animals attack because they are hunting for food, protecting their territory, protecting their young or because they fear for their own safety. Under the veneer of social behavior, humans still have these same instincts – BUT only humans are capable of

“brutality” for its own sake – as we witness all too often in our news! Blame Walt Disney if you wish, but we have come to anthropomorphize our animal friends and credit them with human traits. We forget that they do not see the world through human eyes and their emotional responses remain based on their survival instincts. Our pets are imprinted with human socialization – wild animals are not! Much as I am ambivalent about hunting – the introduction of controlled hunting seasons and regulations - and use of firearms, has allowed wildlife populations everywhere to recover after decades of unbridled hunting and times when eagles and ospreys fetched a bounty! Wildlife has not merely increased within Princeton; it has increased everywhere. Wildlife populations are simply returning

slowly of their former abundance. We once more have eagles soaring in our skies, ospreys on our rivers; and deer are again a presence in our valley – their rightful home. Feeding the deer is a red herring. I love the deer but I don’t feed them – nor do I know of anyone else who does. To establish harmony, wild animals need our understanding and empathy – not our wrath! Fortunately, the world view on nature and wildlife has come a long way since the “good” old days when many people felt free to kill anything that created an annoyance or minor financial loss. The prevailing world view on wildlife has become one of appreciation, protection and preservation - the view that guides my attitudes and perceptions. Karin Green Princeton

The Upper Similkameen Spirit Festival is in its last week, but we still have plenty happening. The Powwow last weekend at Princeton Secondary School was an amazing event with drum groups and dancers from all over B.C. We were also excited to host an exhibition of First Nations artists works including paintings by Levi Bent and masks and a carved buffalo skull by Earl Wood. Workshops for children to explore their creativity by painting stones were also held on Saturday and Sunday. The History of the Pow Wow exhibition runs until Saturday, April 14 with the beautiful regalia of Oly Bent and Tiinesha Begaye

For the close of the Upper Similkameen Spirit Festival, we are excited to announce a special performance by Tiinesha Begaye at Riverside Centre on April 15 at 3 p.m. Tiinesha, whose heritage is Navajo and Similkameen, plays a blend of Canadian-style hand drumming with elements of DinĂŠ social singing and presents songs that capture the excitement and energy of native youth today.

Keremeos gets new interactive museum website Contributed editor@similkameenspotlight.com

The South Similkameen Museum Society invites you to visit their newly designed website at www.keremeosmuseum.ca. Keep up to date with museum and community related activities under our Events section; learn how the SSMS encourages community engagement in the Museum Resources section; visit our Gallery section to view our collection of historic photographs capturing industry, buildings, and people; or browse to see if your family’s history is listed in our Families on Record section – presently, there are over 50 family histories collected! If you would like to contribute a family story or historic photographs from your family’s collection, please contact us. It is the museum’s mission to collect and preserve the South

story. This project was funded and software provided through the Canadian Heritage Information Network /Community Memories Program. As an integral member of the community, part of our responsibility is to ensure free and accessible information for anyone who has interest in South Similkameen history. We hope that by sharing a part of the museum’s collection via our website and through our two virtual exhibitions, that those who cannot make it to the museum in person, will go online to learn and later to share their discoveries of the South Similkameen from a virtual experience. Our website will be maintained monthly, please visit us regularly! We welcome our past members, families and interested individuals to join to SSMS: Membership is $10; volunteers are always welcome!

Similkameen history and we can only accomplish this goal with your participation! If viewing www.keremeosmuseum.ca leaves you wanting to see more historic images of the South Similkameen, visit the National Virtual Museums of Canada at www.virtuamuseum.ca and view our two virtual exhibitions: The Winds of Change – Keremeos and the Similkameen Valley; and, Legends and Lore of the South Similkameen. With over 200 historic and contemporary photographs curated by the South Similkameen Museum Society, you can take your time to enjoy viewing the exhibitions comfortably from your home, office or school. We encourage teachers and students to utilize the virtual exhibitions as an educational tool when learning about our regional history – every picture tells a

SpotlightLIFESTYLES

A melt in your mouth dish for those with stomachs of steel I had some corned beef for supper the other night and it brought back some memories. On a side trip to a little village east of Rome where we were invited by the mayor, we got involved in a local custom of fighting bulls (actually running them up and down the streets until one of them got killed). Then in a joint effort the village had it cleaned and butchered. Most of the meat went to the needy, but there were ten or so roasts left that were put in vats, seasonings added and the meat corned for three days in the hot sun. Sounds gross, but it was incredibly tasty and so tender the meat simply fell off the bones. I think the thing that made it so good was the fact that the beef was put in the big vats and beer was added until the meat was covered. On the last day of our visit the corned

beef was perfect and we ate until we were stuffed. We also brought all the meat we could carry back to the ship and everybody who tried it thought it was incredible. Theoretically that meat should have killed everybody who ate it, but like the people in most third world countries who eat meat from the market place that is almost green and live to eat again the next day, the worst hinge that happened to those who ate it was they got the runs for a few days. If you have a strong stomach like me, you will love this. Here are the ingredients. Ingredients;

4 lbw. corned or fresh beef: brisket is best 1/2 cup flour 1/2 cup peeled carrots and parsnips 1 pound potatoes 1 tbsp pickling spice 1 bay leaf, a few caraway seeds and a few juniper berries beer to cover NELSON LEWIS 1 tbsp. Dijon mustard Method; Put the beef in a casserole dish, rub with flour and mustard, add the vegetables and seasonings. Add beer to cover and let marinate over night or longer if you prefer. Cook on a low heat for two hours or until tender to a fork. Make a sauce with the flour and liquids,

slice the beef and serve hot. Goes wonderful with cabbage, carrots and some nice baking biscuit. If you use a corned beef from your butcher shop, be sure to soak it over night (a few days ahead) and drain it one or two times or it will be very salty. See ya next week!
