Forgotten fund$ Bank of Canada is looking after money left in Keremeos Youth Association Gaming account since 2001 By Steve Arstad email@example.com The Review recently received a letter from a Vernon resident who, during a search of unclaimed balances through the bank of Canada’s web page, discovered an unclaimed balance that originated with the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce in Keremeos. The letter was sent to the Review with a request to look into finding the owner of the unclaimed balance, rather than see it “go to waste”. An “unclaimed balance” is a Canadian-dollar deposit or negotiable instrument, issued or held by a federally regulated bank or trust company. It can be in the form of a deposit account, bank draft, certified cheque, deposit receipt, money order, GIC, term deposit, credit card balance, or traveller’s cheque. If an account goes dormant for a period of 10 years, and if the owner can no longer be contacted by the institution holding the security, the balance is turned over to the Bank of Canada, which acts as custodian on behalf of the owner. Balances are transferred to the Bank of Canada once a year, on 31 December. We took the copy sent to us to the Keremeos Bank of Commerce. Branch manager Dawna Foidart told us that, because the account had been dormant for so long, it had been
transferred to the Bank of Canada, and the local bank no longer had any records related to it. The unclaimed balance of $545.92 is registered in the name of the “Keremeos Youth Association Gaming Account”, with an address listed as R.R#1, S3, C14, Keremeos. The savings account number is 05-20039 0, and the last transaction on the account was Nov.29, 2001. The account was transferred to the Bank of Canada at the end of last year. The passage of Bill C-37 on March 29, 2007 brought the following rules into effect regarding the handling of unclaimed balances: The Bank of Canada will now hold unclaimed balances for thirty years, once they have been inactive for ten years at the financial institutions. Therefore, balances will now be held for a total of forty years prior to being prescribed. Only balances of less than $1,000 will be prescribed after the forty-year period. Previously the limit was less than $500. Think you might have forgotten about a bank account sometime in the past? It happens - the Bank of Canada is currently looking after 1.3 million unclaimed balances, worth approximately 465 million dollars. Over 93 per cent of these were balances of less than $1,000, which represents 29 per cent of the total value outstanding.The oldest balance dates back to 1900. For more information on claiming a balance, contact the Bank of Canada’s website, “How to Claim” at: http://www.bankofcanada.ca/ unclaimed-balances/how-to-claim/

Declining La Niña conditions may point to better weather ahead Cooler than normal conditions indicated in the short term, but signs of changing atmospheric pattern may be a sign of better weather ahead BC Rivers Forecast Centre La Niña conditions in the Pacific Ocean were observed to weaken through March. Weather patterns through the month were consistent with typical patterns observed during La Niña events. Wetter than normal weather was observed across most of British Columbia, with very wet conditions in the Lower Fraser, Columbia and Kootenay regions. Temperatures across the province were 0.5 to 1.5 ºC cooler than normal. Snowpack Combined cooler and wetter weather through March has led to significant growth of snow packs throughout the province. Snow packs are above normal throughout the province. The snow basin index for the entire
Fraser River basin is 131 per cent of normal. This is the 5th highest April 1 snowpack observed since 1953, and is similar to levels observed in 2007. Okanagan-Kettle 104 per cent of normal Similkameen 110 per cent of normal Outlook By April 1, about 95 per cent of the annual B.C. snowpack has typically accumulated. For most areas, the transition from snow accumulation to snow melt generally occurs in the middle of April, and therefore the April 1 snow survey is considered to be the key survey of the year for assessing the impact of snow pack on seasonal water supply and flood risk. With above normal snow packs through most of the province, above normal spring runoff volume is expected in most basins across the province. Conditions in the Okanagan-Kettle basin have improved since February with the current snow pack at near normal levels. Therefore near normal seasonal runoff is expected for the Okanagan basin. Snowmelt driven rivers in British Columbia generally reach their peak
levels in May and June. La Niña conditions across the equatorial Pacific Ocean have been weakening and the Climate Prediction Centre with the U.S. National Weather Service (NOAA) is predicting the La Niña event to break down by late-April. NOAA suggests that atmospheric patterns are still indicative of La Niña conditions, and this is consistent with current seasonal weather forecasts from Environment Canada. The current 30-day deterministic temperature forecast from Environment Canada is for cooler than normal temperature across the province, except the far north and north-east. The current three-month forecasts transition into warmer than normal temperatures through most of the province into the summer, and below normal precipitation over the same period. The River Forecast Centre continues to monitor snow and weather conditions across the Province and when conditions warrant, provides advisories through media releases and on the River Forecast Centre website: http://bcrfc. env.gov.bc.ca/. The May 1 snow bulletin is expected to be released on May 8, 2012.

Andrea Threatful with her dog Wrinkles, two days after they were attacked by a Alex Cooper/Revelstoke Times Review coyote at the Selkirk Saddle Club ground.
pup, heâ€™s a good boy.â€? Even after badly wounded, Wrinkles tried to fight back, Threatful said, at one point putting his own jaws on the coyote before the predator ran off. The attack left Threatful with a deep bite on her calf and puncture wounds down her leg. On Saturday, two days after being bitten, she said the wound was still sore. Wrinkles was in much worse shape, with an injured leg, a large wound on the right shoulder and a deep laceration on his face that ran about four inches and came close to his eye. The area around his eye was badly swollen. Wrinkles spent the day at the vet while Threatful attended Queen Victoria Hospital, where she received eight stitches. â€œHeâ€™s lost quite a few of his wrinkles now that heâ€™s had a face lift,â€? she said with a light chuckle on Friday. Wrinkles was released and will require four to six weeks for recovery, Threatful said, adding that his leg was a concern. â€œWeâ€™re waiting to see what happens with the leg and hop-
ing for no infection,â€? she said Friday. On Saturday she said that he was already doing a lot better. She said she spoke to conservation officer Adam Christie, who told her he would look into the situation and try and deal with the problem. This is the second time Wrinkles has been attacked this year by the saddle club. In early January, he was set upon by three coyotes and suffered a large wound to the face. That time, Threatful was able to scare them off with a shovel. That wound was still visible but the hair on his face had grown back in around it. Now Wrinkles has another large laceration over the back right part of his head. Threatful said she has been cautious in the area ever since the first attack but hadnâ€™t had any issues since the winter. â€œWe hadnâ€™t even seen or heard coyotes in recent months,â€? she said. â€œI have to go and feed my horses â€“ thatâ€™s the way it is.â€? *** See follow-story on coyote situation near the Revelstoke Saddle Club grounds on page 7.

Angela Threatfulâ€™s dog Wrinkles was attacked by a coyote for the second time this year. This time, Threatful herself was also injured while tending to her horse at the Selkirk Saddle Club on Thursday. She was riding one of her horses bareback in the open pasture at the south end of the club grounds when Wrinkles spotted the coyote and ran off. The coyote gave chase, bit onto Wrinklesâ€™ leg, knocked him down and then grabbed onto his right shoulder, Threatful said. â€œFrom there he grabbed the side of his neck and tried to rip him open,â€? she said in an interview Friday morning. â€œAnd, well, he pretty much succeeded. Heâ€™s a hurting unit.â€? Seeing the attack, Threatful got off her horse to save her dog, hitting the coyote with a stick and kicking at it. Thatâ€™s when the coyote turned and bit her right leg. â€œWhen you hear that scream coming out of a dog like that â€“ itâ€™s a sound Iâ€™ve never heard before,â€? she said. â€œYou donâ€™t think, you just react.

Sandy Diaz Hart (second from left) converses with some of the local Mexican labour pool at Sizzlefest last week. Diaz Hart has been indespensible for the past several years to the Mexican migrant community, who rely on her for help with language and health issues. Attempts to bridge the communication gap between the areaâ€™s farmers and their imported labour have been marginalized by what appears to be a lack of interest on the part of the farmers.

South Similkameen Museum Society plans for a busy year By Judy Chisholm South Similkameen Museum Society At the AGM of the South Similkameen Museum Society there were few changes but many accolades for the hard working volunteers. The new executives of the society are President Judy Chisholm, VicePresident Doreen Topping, Treasurer Doreen Smith, Secretary Kim Ruttig, and the new directors are; John Armstrong, Pat Kupiak, Celia Pattenden and Della Barrett. A new position was created to honour Frances Peck as she was appointed historian. Frances’ invaluable knowledge of the people and places in this valley are an asset that we have been relying on and will be asking her to assist in that vein more and more
in the next year or two. The museum society has been very busy over the past year carrying on with many of the existing functions such as; hosting a booth at all the community events and holding a plant sale. But there were a few new activities as well, the very popular Fancy Hat Tea Party, and the Pioneer picnic are two of the more popular new functions. With a busy year behind us we are gearing up for an even busier new year. While still maintaining the existing community events many hours will be worked by volunteers if we are successful in obtaining a grant to help sort, catalogue and digitize many photos and documents that are in the museum but should be safe guarded by scanning them into a computer. This will be a
huge job and we will be reaching out to ask for more help from the people of this community. The results of our application should be known by the end of August. With spring upon us (or is that wishful thinking) there will be a yard clean-up at the museum on May 5 at 10 a.m. If you have a good and reliable gas weed eater that you could donate to the museum (to use ...not go on display) we would be very grateful. Or, if you can’t donate one maybe bring yours over and we will let you use it in the museum yard. We are also looking for some garden hoses and sprinklers, most of ours should be moved inside the building to go on display. If you can help in any way please call Judy Chisholm at 250-499-2883.
Similkameen Farmworkers Campground Society emphasize farm accommodations this year By Doe Gregoire Similkameen Farmworkers Campground Society Chair Following our last meeting earlier this year, the committee members decided that creating a campground again was not feasible at this time. The group decided to change the focus to an advocacy group instead. Doe Gregoire was invited to give a workshop at the annual meeting of the COABC (certified organic association of British Columbia). The topic
included issues surrounding the lack of accommodations for farm workers and alternative means to alleviate this problem. Along with the lecture a brief questionnaire was handed out and completed by those farmers who attended the lecture asking for their feedback on the issue. The RDOS has been in touch with our group to possibly promote and deliver a similar questionnaire to the farmers in Area “B” and “G” asking for their feedback and or support for providing better accommodations for
their workers where necessary. In the mean time Doe has information for the farmers about how to create inexpensive out door hot showers using a hot water on-demand unit, with plans for easy construction as well as inexpensive ways to build a kitchen area using a travel trailer. Farmworkers for the most part don’t mind using tents as long as they have a place to pitch it and have a way to cook and get clean after work. Anyone wanting a copy of the shower plans, please contact Doe at 499-2952
One million dollar boost for school fruit and vegetable program By Kathryn Hardy Ministry of Agriculture B.C. is providing $1 million to further support school children’s access to fresh B.C.-grown fruit and vegetable snacks in the classroom. This funding is in addition to a $3 million expansion announced in May 2011, and will help support the expansion of the BC School Fruit and Vegetable Nutritional Program to include more public and First Nations schools across the province. It is expected that an additional 75 schools will join the program by September 2012, and a further 75 schools will join by January
2013, benefitting up to 27,000 more children each year. This would bring the total participating schools to 1,484. The program will also continue to support schools that wish to purchase fridges and provide salad bars, as ways of offering fresh fruit and vegetables in the school. Additionally, the funding will enable the program to explore new models for increasing children’s and families’ access to fresh, local fruit and vegetables. The objective of the BC School Fruit and Vegetable Nutritional Program is to increase students’ knowledge of, preference for and consumption of, fruits and vegetables. The program provides
B.C. grown fresh fruit and vegetable snacks to children in all grades and is available to most of B.C.’s public and First Nations schools. The program was created in partnership with the Ministries of Health, Agriculture, and Education and is led by the BC Agriculture in the Classroom Foundation, a non- profit organization dedicated to bringing B.C.’s agriculture to students. The BC School Fruit and Vegetable Nutritional Program promotes B.C.grown produce, and distributors include the Overwaitea Food Group, Saputo Dairy Products Canada, Dynamex Couriers, Bayview Market and Papason Trucking Ltd.

THE REVIEW Publisher: Mark Walker 605 7th Ave, Box 130, Keremeos, B.C. V0X 1N0
Editorial Famous phrase now applicable to all MPs A delegation consisting of Dan Albas, MP for the riding of Okanagan - Coquihalla, is scheduled to appear before this Thursday’s RDOS Corporate Services Committee meeting to inform the committee regarding recent budget changes that increase the age of eligibility for old age pensions to 67 years old. We wonder what Mr.Albas will be able to say to make the budget change more palatable to the committee. We strongly suspect there will be nothing new revealed in Mr. Albas’ comments. We feel that Mr. Albas cannot justify the raising of OAP age for the simple reason that he made no effort to staunch the unreasonably generous flow of the public’s money into his publically funded pension plan. This is not a personal matter - Alex Atamanenko, MP for BC Southern Interior, should be joining Mr. Albas in the committee room this Thursday. There should not be any respite for our federal politicians from public wrath over this issue. A lame promise to take some action on MP pension plans after this parliament is simply not good enough. There should not be any peace when politicians insist on elevating themselves to a higher status level where fewer economic rules apply than to the rest of us. As we have noted before, this is an issue that transends political boundaries. The basis of reasoning from which the present sitting of parliament has earned our eternal wrath can be best explained by recalling a portion of the famous comment used by Brian Mulroney against John Turner during the leaders debate in the 1984 Canadian federal election. The exchange has been considered one of the great “knockout blows” in the history of Canadian political debate, and the phrase could just as successfully be applied to our parliamentarians as a whole regarding the issue of MP pension reform: “You had an option, sir. You could have said, ‘This is wrong for Canada, and I am not going to ask Canadians to pay the price.’ You had an option, sir. You could have done better.”

Awards night provides a lesson in civility Magnanimous conduct of first place finalist allows competition to feel like winners, too By Steve Arstad email@example.com This past weekend I was honoured to attend the Ma Murray Community Newspaper Awards on behalf of the Review after being selected as a finalist for the John Collison Memorial Award for Investigative Journalism. My nomination as a finalist was based on a series of articles published in the Review late last summer, outlining some issues negatively affecting some of the Mexican farm workers in the Similkameen. The Review’s entry faced some pretty serious competition. We came up against a series of articles
written by Jeff Nagel of the Surrey News Leader (which ran in the Review last year) and a submission written by Aaron Orlando of the Revelstoke Times Review about squalid conditions in B.C. forestry workers’ camps. I have to admit that having to address a large public audience (i.e., more than three people) is not an experience that I thrive on. I think I would sooner face having my fingernails pulled out, one at a time, or get waterboarded than to have to address an audience. Well, it might not be quite that bad, but you get the idea. At any rate, I didn’t have anything to worry about last Saturday night as only the first place finisher had to go up on stage. That well deserved honour went to Jeff Nagel for his articles on the justice system. Aaron Orlando won second place for his submission, leaving the Re-
view with third. Jeff used his presentation opportunity to prove that not only is he an exceptional journalist, he is also a gracious, urbane and charitable winner. Upon accepting his first place award, Jeff ’s remarks were almost entirely directed (favourably) towards his two competitors. I won’t go into details about what he said, but suffice to say that when he finished, I didn’t feel as though I had lost to him at all. I never had an opportunity to speak to Aaron, but I’m sure he must have felt the same way. We seem to be living in a time where disrespect of our fellow man is rampant - from contending with things in our daily lives like road rage, to witnessing those game-by-game attempted-decapitationsloosely-disguised-as-abody check in the NHL, to everything in between. Such things as civility, selflessness and - most
key - respect for each other - seem to be in rapid decline. (This isn’t meant to be preachy - I would readily include myself as also being responsible for helping to create that perception of humanity.) Jeff’s few comments last Saturday night made everyone feel good - including his competitors. That kind of consideration is a rare thing indeed. It was a great thing for me to experience - and who knows? - maybe even learn something from. Congratulations, Jeff, on a job well done. You proved to be the better man in more than one category on Saturday night.

Ottawa to boost search , rescue funds - Penticton Herald April 16, 2012 The porko’s of our beautiful country never cease to amaze me with their inexperienced lip service. Defense Minister Peter MacKay announced $8.1 million will be spent to strengthen search and rescue response. MacKay and dissidents are anxious to blow billions of bucks on F-35 fighter jets to protect Canadians from what - I haven’t figured out yet. On the other hand not one helicopter could be deployed immediately to help find a 14 - year old Burton Winters because all helicopters were out
of commission. Young Burton never lived to see the light of another day but strange as it may seem - there was a helicopter ready to go pluck Pop Gun Pete (aka) Defense Minister Peter MacKay from a fish camp at great public expense. As usual the sickness of our Canada is caused by inexperienced Porko’s and company who live above the clouds - shielded from the beat -and sounds emitted from a sea of broken hearts from so many that do the honest work here on planet Earth. Too bad personal porko grain bins are filled with golden seed instead of Round -up or the soon to be obsolete penny. Tom Isherwood, Olalla
Princeton rancher convinced of merits of national park To the Editor: Re: CPAWS Presentation On 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 their 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 there 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 aging 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 spin offs it can bring to the region, in addition to projected annual revenues of 37 million dollars. 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 ,Princeton.
Free course in meditation offered to everyone To The Editor: I’ve just been given a wonderful gift. Actually, the same gift is being offered to you, too. The Cawston/Keremeos Ecumenical Parish (Saint John’s Anglican and Cawston United Congregations) has invited me to teach an eight-week course in meditation, that we’ve titled “Meditation for Everyone”. They want it to be a free, “no strings attached” gift from them to anyone who would like it. Really. No preaching, no judging, no membership sales-pitch. A free gift, pure and clear. But what exactly is meditation? Some think of it as a form of prayer. In those terms I would describe it as “prayer beyond words”. Some understand it in broader, less religious terms, like “opening your mind to the big picture”. Though a bit fuzzy, I like that. It sounds refreshing, and liberating, and “wonderful” – as in “full of wonder.” Those are three good words. Medical and mental health fields often speak of it in therapeutic terms, kind of like “meditation medication.” It’s “good for what ails you,” like stress, anxiety, and high blood pressure. I find it to be all of those things, and more. Meditation is as old as the hills - the Judean hills where Jesus taught and meditated and the mountains of Tibet. It is also as new as quantum physics, from Einstein to the present. Actually it “exists”,
or is experienced, only “in the present moment”. It can’t get any newer than that! I’ve been practicing and teaching meditation for over thirty years. I teach a form of it that can be easily learned, incorporated into a variety of belief systems, and practiced by persons of any religious tradition or none. It is “ecumenical” in the broadest sense of the word. Maybe that’s why they’ve signed me up to do this. You can sign up too, by calling them at 499-5451. Just leave a message saying “Register me for the meditation course”, with your name and your email address or phone number. The course is on Tuesdays, May 1through June 19, from 7 to 8:30 p.m., at St. John’s Church, 605 Fifth Street in Keremeos. You’re also invited to a bonus precourse, day-long prayer workshop on Saturday April 28, from 9:30 to 4 p.m.. Prayer may sound like old stuff, but expect its content to be beyond your expectations! And it’s also free. I’d love for you to join me at either or both of these events. And thanks, Ecumenical Parish, for the gifts.

SHOP TOWELS, PAPER TOWELS AND THE VILLAGE SEWER SYSTEM DON’T MIX! The Village is currently having problems with the sewer system in the lower level of Keremeos. We are asking that people do not flush shop towels or paper towels into the sewer system as they are too thick and do not break down like toilet paper. When shop towels or paper towels are flushed into our sewer system they cause a lift station to plug up which, in some cases, require overtime call outs of the Public Works crew.

The truck comes with a dump box and tail gate, belly plow and sanding unit – all in operating condition. • Asking $ 5000 or best offer The dump truck and associated equipment will be sold on an “as is where is” basis and is available for viewing at the corner of 8th Street and Veterans Avenue inside the fence at the Sewer Treatment Plant.

Monthly incident report from the Keremeos Volunteer Fire Department KVFD press release Keremeos Volunteer Fire Department responded to the following incidents in March 2012 1 – Chimney fire 1 – Garbage can fire 3 - Motor vehicle incidents 1 – Brush fire The Keremeos fire department would like to thank Evin Hartfield, owner of Cathedral Ridge construction for donating material and company time for the preparation of some recent training and also Duncan Baynes for the use of the property. A shockingly high number of homes in B.C. don’t carry working smoke alarms, resulting in a high number of accidental deaths, according to a new study by the University of Fraser Valley and Surrey Fire Services. As a result, the provincial government and the Fire Chiefs’ Association of B.C. are launching a new campaign to ensure every home in the province has a working alarm. On Thursday the province and Surrey released data showing that almost 70 per cent of houses that caught fire in B.C. between 20062011 did not have a functioning smoke alarm. The research suggests that one in three fire deaths over that period might have been avoided if there had been a working smoke detector. The data also shows that children, elderly people, those in First Nations communities and rural areas are greatest at risk of dying in a house fire. “This is a very poor report card on the state of functioning smoke alarms in our province and country,” said Len Garis, the President of the Fire Chiefs’ Association of BC and also Surrey’s fire chief. “As a fire service, we now have the opportunity to work together and make a real difference on this important safety issue. We’ve tackled this issue before, but this time we’ll be looking for permanent, sustainable solutions.” BC Attorney-General Shirley Bond said the report’s findings show the province needs to convince residents its in their personal interest to install a working smoke detector in their home. “At the end of the day, we want every home to have a working smoke alarm. It’s a goal we should have for all Canadian homes, and we plan to lead by example in our province.” The study, which was completed earlier this year, analyzed almost 50,000 fires in Alberta, B.C. and Ontario that took place between 2006 and 2011. There were 663 fatalities.
Over The Bridge Custom Picture Framing
In B.C. alone, 135 of the 170 fire-related deaths over the same five years took place in Saturday, April 21st homes that didn’t have a working smoke alarm. Off Frame Orders Of those, 54 victims were either asleep at the time of the fire or impaired by alcohol or drugs. 1 Day Only The condition of the casualty was unknown in 250-499-2950 62 other cases. Smoke inhalation accounted as 3437 River Road the cause of nearly half of all fire deaths. 1st Right after Red Bridge “The findings demonstrated that the death (Over the Red Bridge & follow the signs) rate per 1,000 fires in the absence of a present, Albert & Sharon Boisvert working smoke alarm was 74 per cent greater than when a functioning smoke alarm was present,” the report concluded. The researchers also looked at 11,000 B.C. fires and discovered that those which had a working smoke alarm suffered on average 19 per cent less damage. The fires were also smaller in nature, more often confined to the object, area or room of origin. “Without present, functioning smoke alarms, fires extends further and does more damage,” according to the report. In 2010 B.C. began requiring smoke alarms in all new residential construction. But there remains a significant number of homes that are either not equipped with smoke alarms, or have non-functioning detectors. Bond and Garis said as part of the new campaign the Office of the Fire Commissioner and the Fire Chiefs’ Association will lead a committee to focus on “the three E’s of injury prevention — education, environment and enforcement.” There will also be a school-based curriculum for fire prevention, and a call for federal politicians to consider instituting design changes to prevent Get the training and support you need to find and keep a job in B.C. smoke alarms from Job search resources • Personal employment planning • Workshops and training • Specialized services being disabled. The report points out that 17.3 per cent of buildings that caught fire had smoke alarms that didn’t work. Of that, more than one in five had either dead batteries, the batteries were removed, or the wiring was disconnected or turned off. The rest either were in unsuitable locations or failed for other undetermined reasons.

Rash of wildfire incidents leads to warning from Kamloops Fire Centre Vigilance urged for safe outdoor burning this spring Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations press release Since the beginning of April, Wildfire Management Branch personnel and municipal fire departments in the Kamloops Fire Centre have responded to a number of wildland fire incidents that resulted from poorly planned open burning. Provincial fire crews have extinguished wildfires that burned over 100 hectares of land, which is a high level of activity for this time of year. No lightning was detected in the area, so it appears that these fires were all human-caused and thus preventable. The Wildfire Management Branch recognizes that conducting safe and well-planned open burning is sometimes necessary to manage vegetation continued on page 17

Interior Health joins Volunteer Canada to mark National Volunteer Week April 15 - 21, paying tribute to the thousands of volunteers who graciously donate their time and energy to support our patients, clients and residents. “Volunteers complement the care provided by our professionals,” says Norman Embree, Interior Health Board Chair. “It is a great way to gain new experience, meet new people, and make a real difference in your community. The health care setting truly allows volunteers to have an impact on people’s lives.” Events are being held this month to say “thank you” to the many vital volunteers throughout the organization. “We sincerely want to acknowledge our volunteers, including the many auxiliaries that work so hard on behalf of patients,” says Interior Health CEO Dr. Robert Halpenny. “They contribute through vital fundraising, giving directions, visiting with dialysis patients, offering wigs and scarves to cancer patients, and countless other ways each day. Our volunteers are the definition of caring and compassion.” National Volunteer Week is Canada’s largest celebration of volunteers, volunteerism, and civic participation. It deserves to be recognized - across Canada 13.3 million volunteers contribute 2.1 billion total hours. Interior Health is continually recruiting these special individuals to fill important roles in our hospitals and health centres, residential care facilities, in public health related roles, and in our communities. Visit www.interiorhealth. ca for volunteer opportunities in your area. Visit Volunteer Canada, the National voice for volunteerism, at www.nationalvolunteerweek.ca to learn more about the difference volunteers make each day, and how you can recognize their efforts during national Volunteer Week. There are online videos, posters, e-cards and other resources available to let volunteers know how much their work is appreciated.

Canadians are living longer and costs for the Old Age Security (OAS) are rising. On April 1, 2023 the Government of Canada plans to start raising the age of eligibility for OAS and the Guaranteed Income Supplement (GIS) from 65 to 67.*
What does this mean for you? 54 or older as of March 31, 2012
You may still obtain OAS/GIS at age 65
53 or younger as of March 31, 2012
The age of eligibility for OAS/GIS will change gradually between 2023 and 2029
Starting in July 2013, Canadians who are eligible for, but not yet receiving OAS will have the flexibility to delay receiving it in exchange for a higher monthly amount at a later date.
The number of working-age Canadians for every senior is decreasing** 6
The number of working-age Canadians per senior is decreasing, placing additional pressure on the OAS program.

1912 a year to remember in Kaleden Kaleden waterfront celebrates 100 years By Steve Arstad firstname.lastname@example.org Interest surrounding the 1912 sinking of the Titanic appears to be reaching a fever pitch with this year’s 100th anniversary observance. The year 1912 was significant locally as well for the community of Kaleden along the west shore of Skaha Lake. It was in 1912 that the Kaleden Hotel opened.The general store, which survives to this day next door to the hotel remains, also opened its doors that year. The Kaleden Hotel shell was labourioulsy constructed by hand labour, wheelbarrowing loads of concete up four stories of scaffolding which circled the building. The hotel’s fate was similar to Titanic’s, in that she only survived as a viable entity for a short period of time. When the First World War broke out in 1914, business dropped off precipitously as most of the local labour force enlisted. By the end of the conflict, improving roads in the South Okananagan reduced the need for travellers to use Kaleden as a stopping point on their travels through the valley. The hotel closed shortly after the war and never reopened. It was stripped of all salvageable materials as the decades went by; somehow, the concrete shell has survived 100 years. In the 1990’s, local restauranteur Allan Dell headed a movement to partially restore the hotel and make an entertainment venue out of it. The idea was controversial, dividing the community somewhat at the time. An engineering report was done, indicating

Kaleden’s unique waterfront structures are 100 years old this year. what repairs would be necessary, but no restoration work was ever begun. The Regional District Okanagan Similkameen recently identified the hotel as having “heritage significance” to the province. A strategic analysis and a formal study would have to be undertaken at the local level before the province would consider giving the structure official heritage status. Across the street, Kaleden’s original general store has survived the past century in good condition. Through the years it housed the general store, a candy making business, a garage, a restaurant, and private living quarters.
B.C.’s carbon-neutral government takes next step with five million dollar capital program Contributed The provincial government is reaffirming its commitment to being the first carbon-neutral government in North America through a new $5-million capital
program that’s available to school districts for energyefficiency projects that will lower their carbon emissions, Environment Minister Terry Lake announced today. Starting in 2012/13, the new K-12 energy-efficiency capital program will be available to boards of education
through the Ministry of Education. The amount of available funding has been set to be equal to or greater than the total paid by school boards each year for purchases of carbon offsets from the Pacific Carbon Trust.

Congratulations on your tax refund. Now that you’ve got it, what should you do with it? You could spend it or you could use it in other ways that will be more beneficial to your longer term financial future. Let’s look at a few good alternatives. • Use it to make your 2012 RRSP contribution right now and you’ll get the benefit of nearly an extra year of potential long-term taxdeferred growth and a tax deduction against next year’s taxes. • Put it in a TFSA. You are allowed to save up to $5,000 a year in a Tax-Free Savings Account (TFSA). Your contributions are not tax-deductible but you will not be taxed on the investment income generated by your TFSA and you can re-contribute any of your tax-free withdrawals in a future year. • Invest it. If your RRSP eligible investments and TFSA are topped up, consider adding to your non-registered investments. It’s a sound strategy to hold stocks and equity mutual funds outside RRSP eligible investments or a TFSA because these types of investments are taxed at a more favorable capital gains inclusion rate and Canadian investments qualify for the dividend tax credit. • Set up Registered Education Savings Plans (RESPs) to fund future education costs for your kids. RESP contributions are not taxdeductible but their growth is tax-deferred and they qualify for Canada Education Savings Grants (CESG)1 of up to 20 percent of your contribution. • Pay down costly credit debt with high interest rates and then pay down non-deductible debt such as your mortgage – a single prepayment could potentially save hundreds or thousands of dollars in interest payments. • Got a large refund? Consider parking that cash in a short-term investment that you can access without penalty. You’ll have a ready source of money for a rainy day or maybe a
MANAGING Your Money new car without having to borrow or use your credit card. (You can also use a TFSA as a rainy day fund.) A tax refund might put a little extra money in your pocket once a year. A comprehensive tax-reducing financial plan definitely puts you on track to achieve your life goals.

The WIDAR system is up and running
A great thing about working at the Dominion Radio Astrophysical Observatory is rubbing shoulders with some extremely smart people. It makes every day a learning experience. A measure of exactly how smart they are is their recent, successful development of the biggest radio astronomical signal processing system in existence. One of the memorable scenes in the movie “Contact” shows the heroine, played by Jodie Foster, sitting amidst the antennas of the Very Large Ar-
ray radio telescope, at Socorro, New Mexico. When it was opened in 1978, this instrument, consisting of twenty-seven 25-metre dishes, was the biggest and most sensitive in the world. Its performance was never bettered. However, changing scientific needs and technological advances made a dramatic upgrade feasible, to provide an instrument about 100 times more sensitive and 8,000 times more capable. Unfortunately, this huge increase in capability brought with it a serious problem. If the stream of data coming from the previous version of the VLA were likened to a flood, the output of the Expanded VLA would be a tsunami. New technologies that did not exist would be needed to process
it. Moreover, since the new instrument would be operating continuously, the data would have to be dealt with as fast as it is produced. That is where the National Research Council and the engineers at our observatory came in. Canada,through the National Research Council, is involved in a number of international collaborations to develop and operate new astronomical facilities. As part of one of those collaborations, a team of engineers at our observatory came up with a possible solution for the EVLA data-handling problem. This new concept in signal processing was called WIDAR. In return Canadian astronomers would have access to this world-leading radio telescope, and other instruments. The deal was accepted, and the design
and construction started. It required the development of new signal processing chips, special circuit boards and control systems. The completed device contains 300 circuit boards, each of which is made up of 28 layers of circuitry. At our observatory equipment racks started to fill with modules loaded with the circuit boards. At DRAO WIDAR could only be tested in parts, because the power demands of the whole system exceeded the observatoryís electricity supply. As the racks were completed they were shipped to Socorro. At the end of March the DRAO team followed for the formal “switch-on” and a celebration of the success of this international effort and a unique example of Canadian innovation. The first radio images are rolling off the
production line, and astronomical research will soon be getting a big boost, driven by observations that were simply not possible a few years ago. Jupiter is low in the west after sunset; Venus is higher up and brilliant. Mars is high in the Southeast; Saturn rises about 8 pm. The Moon will be new on the 20th. 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 tips to improve your happiness from around the world By OK In Health eMagazine Places around the globe where people are ‘lightest of heart’ have some insight into feeling happier. 1. Don’t complain (too much) about high taxes a) Though you may grumble somewhat, do so only briefly. Denmark is a case in point; almost half of its annual budget goes towards levelling its residents’ “playing field”. Noted as one world’s wealthier nations per capita, it is ranked the highest for well-being. The Danes’ happiness is about satisfaction and living with good health care, public education and strong family support services. Economic security adds to a greater sense of security. 2. Finish work at 5:00 pm and take all your holidays. a) Studies claim that once income rises above $60,000 a year, more money does not = long-term happiness. 3. Appreciate your freedom a) Political and economic freedom to go out and get a loan to start a business are two points that many North Americans take for granted. Get out and vote! 4. Support walk-ways and bike lanes a) The “walkability” and ease of getting around a city promotes health and well-being and healthier, happier people. 5. Stay cozy in the colder months a) The Danes have a strategy to deal with the shorter, winter days called “hygge” which means the “art of relaxing in a warm and cozy environment”. Light candles and make your home a comfy retreat from the outdoors. In Canada it’s know as “voluntary hibernation”. 6. Say “no” to drive-through restaurants j a) Though this may seem to be somewhat prohibitive, choosing alternatives to drive-throughs promotes healthier choices. 7. Keep shopping hours to a minimum a) Purchasing a new item may give you an “acquisition high” but it is usually short lived. Instead, limit shopping hours to free up more time to pursue more rewarding activities like volunteering or exercising. 8. Live a quiet, safe neighbourhood a) Research has shown that a barrier to exercise is perceived danger. People generally adapt well to many things, but not to noise. Your mood can affected by the dog barking in the apartment next door. 9. Socialize a) Chat with friends over a cup of tea or a glass of wine - some happiness tips are obvious!

DIABETES: KNOWING MORE HELPS
Diabetes is one disease which is important for the patient to understand fully. Having one-on-one instruction from a diabetes educator is an important part of reaching this goal. It has been shown that those diabetics who understand their diabetes will manage it better.
MARIJUANA USE MAY LEAD TO...
People who smoke marijuana in their youth appear to be more at risk of psychoses and schizophrenia later in life. Two thousand young people that smoked marijuana at least 5 times were found to be 5 times more likely to develop psychosis during the next ten years. Food for thought.
HERBAL SUPPLEMENTS & MEDS
The idea that all herbal supplements are safe because they are natural is not always true. We always recommend you tell your doctor and pharmacist what herbals you take on a regular basis because there are some herbs that can interact with some drugs like warfarin (used as an anti-clotting agent for some heart problems). Herbs like dong quai, garlic, ginkgo, ginseng and St. John’s wort are examples.
ALCOHOL AND SLEEP
Alcohol and a good night’s sleep are not compatible. If you aren’t sleeping well, look at your alcohol intake. Older women seem to be more affected with poor sleeps after alcohol than men. Try without for a while and see if your sleep improves. Take charge of your own health and your family’s health. Let our

In Keremeos on May 9, our community will be hosting a luncheon at the gazebo in Memerial Park for the relay participants. We will be honoring community people and organizations who have made a difference to us all. Focusing on engaging Canadians to take up the challenge and become catalysts for positive change, the relay will feature medal-bearers who will run, walk, wheel or bike and complete their segments through a variety of forms of movement for all abilities. Local community members have been chosen to be medal bearers who will join the national medal bearers on a route from Cawston through Keremeos to Memorial Park. In every province, relay medal-bearers will pass along the singular Rick Hansen medal - produced by the Royal Canadian Mint - as the relay makes its way across the country. While Rick will be present at a number of cities and stops along the 25th Anniversary Relay, it will be these 7,000
medal-bearers who will complete this cross-Canada tour. Locally the relay will start in Cawston at 10 a.m and arrive at several locations on its way to Memorial Park at noon for a community fundraising luncheon. We will be posting the route on Similkameen Country website and also all the names of the local medal bearers. Stay tuned to the Review in the following weeks for more information. Medal-bearers represent a wide spectrum of examples of making a difference. Examples will include those who have made a difference by: · Championing Inclusivity: Creating a more inclusive and accessible society. ·Empowering Youth: Engaging a new generation to become catalysts for positive change. · Protecting the Planet: Contributing to the protection and sustainability of the environment. · Promoting Health: Encouraging others to live a healthy, active lifestyle.
Ministry / continued from page 8 and fuel levels, and can also mitigate the spread of future wildfires. However, all such fires must be carefully planned and safeguards put in place before they are ignited. Always take the following precautions: - Check with the Wildfire Management Branch, local government and civil authorities for any current burning bylaws or fire restrictions. - Create a fireguard at least one metre around the planned fire site by clearing away twigs, grass, leaves and other combustible material. - Don’t let the spread of the fire dictate how big it becomes. Determine the fire’s size and perimeter before you begin burning. - Avoid large concentrations of fuel in a small area by making sure that the materials you’re burning are spread out evenly. - If you are planning a large burn, consider conducting smaller burns around the perimeter beforehand to create a fuel break and help stop the fire from spreading beyond its intended size. Each of these fires should be kept small and must be completely extinguished before starting a new fire. - Do not burn during windy conditions. Weather conditions can change quickly and carry embers to other combustible material and start new fires. - Never leave a fire unattended. -Ensure that enough people, water and tools are on hand to control the fire and prevent it from escaping. - A fire should not be lit near buildings, trees or other combustible material. -If conducting an open burn near fence posts, power poles or other infrastructure, first remove any flammable material from around the posts and burn a small strip around them before igniting the main fire. - Make sure that your fire is completely extinguished and the embers are cold before you leave the area. Anyone planning large-scale industrial burn (Category 3) must call 1 888 797-1717 and obtain a burn registration number ahead of time. More information is available at: http://bcwildfire.ca/hprScripts/WildfireNews/Bans.asp Venting conditions should always be checked before conducting an open burn. If conditions are rated “Poor” or “Fair”, open burning is restricted. The venting index can be found at http://www.bcairquality.ca/readings/ventilation-index.html.
· Medical Progress: Advancing research or healthcare for the betterment of others. The Rick Hansen 25th Anniversary Relay will travel through more than 600 communities as it makes its ninemonth, 12,000-kilometre journey across Canada before concluding in Vancouver on May 22, 2012. The average relay distance covered in a day will range from 40 to 80 kilometres. In populated areas, medal-bearers will carry the Rick Hansen medal using a variety of modes of movement, with each medal-bearer covering an average distance of 250 metres. In less populated areas, and to cover longer distances between communities, the Rick Hansen Medal will be carried by a medal-bearer in “endurance mode.” Finally, in an effort to showcase Canada’s innovation in transportation, accessibility and sustainability, extraordinary transportation modes will be utilized - ranging from hand-cycle, snowmobile, adaptive rowing and a variety of other forms.

Egg addling technique continues to control goose population Goose management program, now in its sixth year, could be responsible for reducing regional goose populations by as much as 5,000 Contributed The Okanagan Valley Goose Management program is working on its sixth year of egg addling to control the number of Canada geese in public spaces. Trained contractors have been searching for pairs and nesting sites and hope to complete the addling program by the end of May. “Last year, field crews located and addled 1,308 eggs from 274 nests between Vernon and Osoyoos,” said Project Co-ordinator Kate Hagmeier. “The multi-year project aims to reduce the population of resident Canada geese to a more manageable level, and reduce large concentra-
tions of geese in heavily used public areas. In addition to addling, aerial surveys conducted in 2011 indicated that growth in the goose population had leveled off, but Hagmeier would still like to see more results. “Preventing the dramatic population growth that would have occurred is an exceptional accomplishment, and one that the participating communities should be lauded for having the foresight to manage. However, I hope continued addling, progressive management and partnerships with additional jurisdictions will decrease the Okanagan goose population.” Egg addling involves shaking eggs or coating them with non-toxic biodegradable food-grade corn oil within 14 days of incubation to make them non-viable. The U.S. Humane Society supports this egg addling technique. Once addled, eggs are returned to the nest. Geese continue to incubate until they realize the eggs will not hatch. At this point, it is generally too late in the year to produce more eggs. Adults are not harmed and will continue with their regular life cycle. During the past five seasons, approximately 6,600
eggs have been prevented from hatching through this minimally invasive approach. Taking into account natural mortality of young through predation or nest failure, that is equivalent to approximately 5,000 fewer geese in the valley and all their potential young. The program also entails a nest locating component and goose population surveys. Key to the success of the program, is finding new nests. The public is asked to report lone geese, pairs of geese, or nest locations on private or public land by emailing email@example.com or calling 1-877-943-3209. Information about the program is available at okanagangooseplan.com. The public is asked to keep away from goose nests and to avoid touching the eggs; a special permit is required to perform egg addling, which has been secured from the federal government allowing crews from EBB Environmental Inc. and Wise Wildlife Control to addle goose eggs on public and private lands with the owners’ permission. In the case of private lands, an authorization form is available on the program website.

B.C. Taxpayers want pay equity for government workers CTF poll shows four in five British Columbians think compensation for government employees should be brought in line with private counterpart By Jordan Bateman Canadian Taxpayers Federation The Canadian Taxpayers Federation (CTF) released
an Angus Reid Public Opinion poll today showing an overwhelming number of British Columbians believe government workers are being paid more than taxpayers can afford and should be brought in line with the private sector. Four in five British Columbians said compensation for government employees should be the same as what private sector employees earned. Almost three-quarters (73 per cent) said they would support provincial legislation— a Compensation Equity Act—to ensure governments can’t blow the bud-
get on bureaucrat wages. “This is a clear message to politicians—of every stripe and in every jurisdiction—that the time has come to rein-in ever growing pay and benefits for government workers,” said Jordan Bateman, the CTF’s B.C. Director. “People are tired of digging deeper into their pockets to fund public sector pay increases and gold-plated benefit plans—especially in an economy that leaves them wondering if their own job will continue. It’s an unfair and unsustainable burden.” More than three-quar-
ters (78 per cent) of British Columbians agreed that taxpayers cannot afford to pay more to government employees. “Families in B.C. are strapped for cash and fearful of the future,” said Bateman. “Many taxpayers lie awake at night wondering how they will afford to pay all their bills, put their kids through university, take care of their parents and put money aside for retirement, while paying more and more in taxes for government employees and services. Something needs to change.” Bateman pointed to the
controversy over TransLink executive bonuses as the most recent example of the public saying enough to ever-increasing pay and perks for government employees. In its Unfair Labour Day campaign last year, the CTF released statistics that show government salaries are higher than the private sector and increasing faster. “This poll makes it clear: Governments have plenty of public support to take tough negotiating stands with public workers and bring their salaries and benefits back in line with those earned in the private sec-
tor,” said Bateman. “The gap between government and private sector workers is a great inequity in our society and must be resolved. A big step forward in that effort has been the B.C. Government’s net zero wage mandate, which must continue for at least another negotiating cycle.” The CTF poll was conducted between March 16 and 18, 2012, by Angus Reid Public Opinion. The online survey was of 804 randomly selected British Columbia adults who are Angus Reid Forum panelists, with a margin of error of +/- 3.5 per cent.

Kiswahili vs English – success and accents “Tony’s Big Adventure”s continuing blog Contributed by W. Dawson I’m not sure if Tony is having trouble with Kiswahili or English. Here’s what he says: “I will be meeting with farmers as I did last week. I need an interpreter. Also, the Tanzanian English accent is often difficult for me to follow. I just got off the phone having had a really difficult time understanding it. The person turned out to be the wonderful and helpful logistician who works in this office – Frederick – and I asked him how to spell his name on the phone! Geez, poor guy.” But Tony does describe his growing skills: “One neat occurrence: I sat in a field for a weary while and a man with a bicycle went past and I caught the word ‘pumzika’ – I actually caught it! He was mentioning that I was resting. I was able to reply in Kiswahili that, ‘Yes, I needed to rest.’ This is the first time this has happened. He also wanted some money to fix the flat on his bike and old white and weary guys are a good mark!” “I spent about two hours either walking or sitting after work yesterday. I sat with a good view of Mt. Meru. I just
needed to be outside. I ate a bit when I got home, and then in bed by eight. The day wore me out – not physically. I’m okay now. “Yesterday I felt behind bars – literally! As nice as this office is, there are bars on the windows. The windows are open to welcoming summer breezes but I am still inside and the day is long – 7:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. and I can only read and grasp so much of the technicalities of how WFP functions. “Briefly, there is a lot of support for the farmers in the way of small loans, at least at the moment it seems this way to me. Also, there is training being offered. We have been trying to see if this grower group will meet their contract obligations and, in spite of phone calls and text messages, there (was no immediate) confirmation from them. There are complications – language, power outages – but they were long overdue. There are other grower groups who can deliver and WFP needs this grain for its commitments to ‘school food’ and ‘work for food’ programs and for refugees. I think this is the first possible failure of a farmer co-op (sort of) to meet its contract. These contracts are done by tender and all are free to find other markets. I think the thought here is that
this particular group needs more ‘training’ in order to be able to borrow (money) in order to make an advance payment to their members. (I have) more to learn about all this...” Tony goes on to write that, “I received a letter that the contract could not be fulfilled – (the farmer group) could have said this a week ago when we visited the farming community, however it is finally in writing. The letter is in Kiswahili of course so I passed it on to my immediate superior. Brief translation: The grain that was being delivered was not adequately cleaned and of poor quality and there was less of it due to poorer growing conditions. If this is accurate, the leaders have more field work to do to get a quality product. It could be the farmers don’t fully trust their leaders and think there is more money through other channels. I sure don’t know but all this goes on at home with ‘side selling’ fruit away from co-op. “My hands far from dirty – I wish! I see more time to be spent in this rather lovely office on a hill overlooking Mt. Meru. I think the WFP is doing good things by spending donor money (Gift of Canada and Gift of Japan marked on the maize bags) sourcing grain from Tanzanian farmers. But it takes an army of analysts, administrators, accountants and data processors and to do so. The question is: where does a small farmer such as I fit-in? – fluency in Kiswahili would be nice!”

OBITUARY PATTERSON WILLIAM 1915-2012: On Sunday, April 8th, 2012 William Patterson (né Osachoff) passed away peacefully, after a short illness, at South Okanagan General Hospital in Oliver, B.C. at the age of 97. William was born William William Osachoff on January 15th, 1915 in Brilliant, B.C. to William and Molly Osachoff. He was the eldest of ¿ve children. He married Frances Patterson in 1940 and changed his name to hers in 1951 to avoid the prejudice of the day against the Doukhobor community. William wore many hats throughout his life, owning his own sawmill, working as a farmer, miner, truck driver and carpenter before building and operating almost single-handedly Alpine Fishing Resort on Elbow Lake, north of Kamloops, B.C. He retired in 1976 and moved with his family to Avola and later to Olalla, B.C. He moved to Keremeos in 2009, where he lived at Mountainview Manor until his recent death. William is survived by his sisters Mrs. Tena (John) Koozen of Appledale, B.C., Mrs. Annie (Marten) Springford of Shore Acres, B.C., his daughter Mrs. Barbara (Rory) Weston of Coquitlam, B.C. and many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his sister Mrs. Polly (Ken) Martin and his brother John Osachoff. He was an avid ¿sherman and had a keen interest in the gold mining history of B.C. He was ¿ercely independent, enjoyed cooking and loved to tell jokes. He had a long and eventful life and will be dearly missed by his family. A memorial service will be held in the Slocan Valley in the summer and his ashes will be interred according to his wishes in the cemetery in Perry Siding with his mother. Arrangements entrusted to Graham Funeral Home, 5920 Kootenay Street, Oliver B.C. (250) 498-3833. Your message of condolence, sharing your fond memories of William may be sent to: www.grahamfh.com
