Michelle Cole (far right, blue dress) and her merry band of volunteers provided food, lodging and entertainment for attendees of the Coalmont Hotel 100th Anniversary celebration held in Coalmont this past weekend.

Celebrating 100 years of life, history and community Lisa Carleton lisa@similkameenspotlight.com

Standing for 100 years in her small community, the Coalmont Hotel has lasted through a century of parties, prohibition, acted as a theatre, housed a barbershop and was home to many throughout her lifetime. Michelle Cole took out a lease on the hotel earlier this year and reopened for business just in time for the 100th Anniversary in April. She has had the saloon open since then and has been working hard

to renovate and fix the hotel up. “I put everything I make back into her,” Cole said. “I love her (the hotel), I love Coalmont and I don’t want to loose her, I feel at home here,” she adds. Cole wants the hotel to become successful again so the owner won’t decide to just shut it down for good. Cole operates the saloon daily from noon to 2 a.m., and Sundays noon until midnight. Saturday evening dinners are served at 7 p.m. and Cole will provide special catering for groups as well. There is no need to worry about a place to stay

Weather Watch

if you have taken in one too many spirits. For a small donation you can spend the night in one of the historic rooms available. Generating ideas to create an interest in the hotel brought about the idea of a huge party, and what better party to have, than a birthday party. Cole brought her idea forward to other residents and “everybody loved it,” she said. Plans then moved forward for a summer bash to mark the Coalmont Hotel’s centennial year.

Princeton RCMP first quarter report Steve Arstad Keremeos / Okanagan Falls Review

During the first quarter of 2012 Princeton RCMP responded to 395 calls for service, compared with 382 calls during the first quarter of 2011. This corresponds to a minor increase of three per cent. Reports relating to thefts from vehicles increased in the first quarter after several months of below average numbers. Most of the vehicles were left unlocked overnight with valuables inside when they were targeted by thieves. Vehicle thefts, conversely, declined to only one report received in the last three months. Break and enters and mischief/property crime files declined substantially from the first quarter of 2011 while other crimes such as other thefts, cause disturbances and assaults saw minor increases. There were no reports of serious violent crimes (robbery/ homicide), sexual assaults or business B&Es in the Princeton detachment area during the first quarter of the year. Drug Enforcement In the first quarter of 2012 Princeton RCMP investigated nine founded drug offences. One of these files involved drug trafficking and is still under investigation, while the remaining eight files involved drug possession Traffic Safety Between January and March of 2012, Princeton RCMP charged two drivers with impaired driving under the Criminal Code. A further two drivers were given three day Immediate Roadside Prohibitions, while three drivers were given 24 hour suspensions for drug use and two drivers were given 24 hour suspensions for alcohol use. Community Engagement The Princeton detachment had a very busy

quarter with community events. The detachment was represented by members’ attendance at the following events; Brownies, Anti-bullying day at Vermillion Forks and John Allison Elementary schools. Princeton Secondary Grad Hockey game, Princeton Legion Youth Night, Posse Jr. Hockey club, Princeton Minor Hockey and the Princeton Figure Skating club. The Princeton detachment maintains a Community Consultative Group and remains in regular contact with the committee. Sgt. Clare has attended council meetings when requested and participates with the Highway 3 Corridor Liaison in partnership with ICBC/Traffic Services/BC Coroners Service/MOT. The detachment remains involved with and supports the Restorative Justice Committee as well as the Rick Hansen Relay Committee. The detachment also supports and conducts Forestry Recreation Site Patrols with an MOF Recreation Officer. Representatives for the Princeton RCMP attend the Princeton Inter-Agency meetings, Princeton Ground Search and Rescue and CAPE Committee Meeting. The Princeton Restorative Justice program has been used with success and the members continue to refer files as appropriate. There are currently five active volunteer facilitators and two files in development. Princeton RCMP continues to appreciate the support from Citizens On Patrol, who remain a valuable resource for the detachment. RCMP members conduct foot patrols throughout the downtown centre throughout the year as an excellent opportunity to connect informally with the community.

Volunteer force behind ER restoration Lisa Carleton/Spotlight

Dawn Gardner volunteers her time at the forum because she believes the community requires an ER 24/7. She along with other volunteers work the forum office 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., weekdays. Photo below is the calendar marked with the names of various doctors avaialble to provide weekend coverage of the Princeton Emergency Room. Lisa Carleton

They were told that two external agencies wold be used to help recruit locums. “The long-term (solution) is to bring physicians to town to establish practice... In the short-term we need to get people from out of town to help us out,” said IHA senior medical director Jon Slater. “We’re doing the work for IHA” said Gardner, they’re laughing—they can’t find their ass with both hands through all their meetings and red tape!” On to finding locums—sounds simple, and it actually was. The volunteers contacted residents in the community to find out what doctors had worked in Princeton previously (checked out prescription labels) created a list and began making calls. “Within two days, working together with Dr. Eva’s office (Dr. Eva working on recruitment as well) we had five confirmed weekends booked with doctors,” said Gardner. “On July 20 I got a call from IHA telling me to stop recruiting locums,” said Gardner. She said she was told that doctors that are recruited have to have Princeton General Hospital privileges and that qualifications had to be checked and doctors had to be approved. “Well, if they already worked here before...” was the statement Gardner said she responded with. On Monday, July 30 the Spotlight contacted IHA to find out where the ER stood on opening 24/7. Susan Brown, vice president of acute services reported that “they are still getting physicians to sign up—there are still gaps.” She said that the Princeton folks were doing a wonderful job of getting the word out. Brown explained that the local physicians need to agree with coverage and feel sure that the shifts would be covered before the ER could actually re-open. “We don’t want to be see-sawing in the community—we need doctors to commit to the weekend shifts.” she said. Brown said that the goal is to work towards 24/7 ER services, “we want it open as much as Princeton does,” she added. As for the REEF application, Brown reported that they were finalizing details and it was in the process of being submitted. As for how long the approval would take, Brown said that the approval process was unknown but that she “didn’t anticipate that it would take a long time.” Back at the forum office, the volunteers will carry on. They will continue working to provide the Stakeholders Table with any and all information that they can to get the ER back to 24/7 operation.

In May of this year the Community Hospital Forum opened an office on Vermilion Avenue to do whatever possible to help get the Emergency Room at Princeton General Hospital back open 24/7. Rented and donated equipment and space is what the volunteers are working with. Countless hours of research and actions towards this result has been performed by volunteers from this community, providing the Stakeholders Table with the information they need. One of these volunteers, Dawn Gardner, was able to volunteer because she had free time due to surgery, and since recuperation she continues to volunteer at the forum daily, during her off-work hours. “It has been a huge learning curve,” Gardener said. “In the beginning we didn’t know sweet diddley — but we have learned a lot.” Gardner said the volunteers have spent enormous amounts of time talking with doctors, nurses, the Ministry of Health, community leaders, MLAs and industry representatives — anyone who could offer assistance. They found that generally the reasons it was hard to get doctors to rural communities was because they had not been paid completely, had nowhere to stay and they were tired of paying extra expenses out of their own pockets. The volunteers found out about a program called REEF (Rural Emergency Enhancement Fund) and were hopeful that by aquiring that funding, 24/7 ER services will be restored to the Princeton General Hospital. “Interior Health Authority (IHA) seems to be throwing constant curve balls,” said Gardner. The REEF application should have been administered already. Five communities: 100 Mile House, Golden, Lytton, Pemberton and Tumbler Ridge have REEF funding in place up to the end of March 2013. Local industry has come forward to supply bridge-funding as a temporary stop-gap measure to assist in the acquisition of locums to cover the ER until REEF funding is in place. Forum volunteers then worked towards finding housing for locums to stay in. They found a local contractor, who could offer just what was required. On July 16, Council of the Town of Princeton announced that together with the Regional District of Okanagan Similkameen (RDOS) they would lease a townhouse, fully furnished and maintained for $2,200 per month from Fred and Company Builders Inc., in order to supply housing for locums. On May 28, during the second protest rally in Princeton, directly after a meeting with IHA and town council, protestors asked IHA employees how they were planning to bring back 24/7 ER care.

SELF-CARE & WELLNESS ADVICE from your Shoppers Drug Mart pharmacist What should I know about keeping my heart healthy? Julie Traballo

Jennifer Gillcash

There are two areas of your health you might want to pay close attention to in order to reduce the risk of developing conditions that relate to your heart and your vascular system (which involves your arteries and veins through which your blood flows). Both your blood pressure and your cholesterol levels are important factors that have a strong impact on keeping your heart healthy. In fact, having high blood pressure and high levels of unhealthy blood cholesterol are risk factors for developing a number of heart and vascular-related conditions such as coronary artery disease, congestive heart failure, heart attack and stroke. How can I keep my cholesterol and blood pressure at healthy levels? One of the best ways to keep your cholesterol levels in a healthy range is to take preventative steps. This might involve a combination of healthier eating, frequent exercise and quitting or reducing certain behaviors (such as smoking or excessive drinking of alcohol). There is strong evidence that a low-salt diet can be helpful in keeping your blood pressure down, so you might consider limiting your intake of certain kinds of foods: Condiments; ketchup, soy and barbecue sauce, pickles and other pickled products, salted snacks; chips and crackers, processed and cured meats; cold cuts and bacon, packaged or canned soups. Visit your Shoppers Drug Mart Pharmacist to learn more about blood pressure and cholesterol and how you can achieve a healthier heart.

Cadidates answer questions on health care This past week Save Our Hospital Coalition conducted interviews with the two candidates for mayor, Rosemary Doughty and Frank Armitage, and the two candidates for Councillor, Doug Pateman and Rob Rubis. Each candidate was asked nine questions regarding health care issues in our community. Here are the results of those interviews. Question 1: If you become mayor/ but I am a quick learner and talk to a lot councillor, where would you place the of people about the issues. From what I health care issue on your list of priori- understand the money to get doctors here is available, but we have to attract doctors ties for Princeton? Rosemary Doughty (RD): Health care that want to come and live here. Providing would be my first priority. When I go door accommodation is a band aid and may to door it is the only thing that people talk work in the short term, but why don’t we about. Whatever the community wants is develop a proposal to use the hospital to its fullest? The facilities are there that what I would stand for. My model of a good mayor is Walter could be more fully used. For example, Despot who worked hard for Keremeos’ why not have people come here for a health care. I would be involved in the treatment specialty such as knee operaissues. When I went to the ER closure tions, then as they convalesce, they will demonstrations, I did not see the Mayor or stay here and provide an economic boost Council there. I would like to see Council to our community. Why don’t we try to start a monthly open information session attract a new wave of retirees to come and where they share with Princeton residents live in Princeton? I would work on attractwhat they are doing and planning to do. If ing and retaining seniors and families so I become mayor, I would like to give more the town population is growing. Question 3: Are you aware that rural information and share more information. Leadership and being pro-active are part BC communities are providing incentives such as free housing to attract of my platform. Frank Armitage (FA): Health care is doctors? What are your feelings about #1 on the list. It is the most critical thing this practice? RD: If it works, it is great. in Princeton. It has to be solved. Without FA: Who best knows but doctors themhealth care we have nothing. Doug Pateman (DP): As president of selves. We have to solicit their help. In Highway Extrication and Rescue I believe the past we counted on IHA. In recent that health care goes hand in hand with times that did not work. We have to take each other. We have to have health care charge. Define our priorities based on budget. I commend Town Council for here, extended health care and doctors. Rob Rubis (RR): Health care is the recently establishing free accommodation pre-eminent issue that faces this town. for locums. This approach may well be Council needs to be supportive of what attractive to regular full time physicians.

Frank Armitage

Rosemary Doughty not think I would have the experience, so I decided to run for councillor. In the same way I feel that doctors should get their experience by first going to a rural area. Competition is the way the world is right now; it is a fact of life. I don’t like it, I don’t necessarily agree with it, but that is life. RR: That is why I am thinking that withdrawing from IHA is something we have to explore and see if it can be done. If we were in charge we have to battle for everything with IHA. Besides, everything we get from IHA means that another B.C. resident living somewhere else might not get what they deserve. I think the idea of assuming control of our own health care has great merit. We have a huge resource of capable and talented people in town and by offering new alternatives we can draw more people in. Question 5: What essential health services would you like to see at PGH? RD: I would want to see an increase in hospital beds, we used to have 26 beds, now that is down to 6. I would want to get equipment back that used to be in the hospital and also get the right equipment. Money for our health care has been taken out of our community and been given to Kelowna. Our hospital had a kitchen and a laundry facility. I would want to work to rebuild the hospital to what it was 10 to 12 years ago. FA: Obviously we must have 24/7 ER services. We must work with our doctors to learn what is realistic and practical and strive to have that level of care implemented and maintained. DP: In 1976 the mine and the mill were here, logging was here and smaller branches. The hospital had a delivery room, doctors were doing surgery. That is what I would like to see again. As a whole we need to have a hospital where you can give birth; shouldn’t have to go to Penticton. We had the beds and a maternity ward.

RR: Services that look after residents for the long term. We need routine medical services and after that we need to look at extended care, special services, and more extensive palliative care. We need to be helping people to stay in their own homes and help them to stay in their community once this is not possible. Why couldn’t we have an obstetrician? There may not be many babies born in Princeton at the moment, but once you have the Operating Room facilities, people could once again be born in their community. As an expecting father I will make more than a dozen trips to Penticton, which is expensive and time consuming, but I want to be there for my daughterʟs birth. Question 6: There are four different levels of ambulance care. We have the first two levels in Princeton, SOHC would like to promote getting level 3 ambulance care. What is your opinion? RD: I would want to look more into the ambulance services. One thing I do know is that ambulance workers should get more money for on call duty. As it is now, people who are in the station and do a 12 or 14 hour shift earn $7 per hour. If an ambulance worker is at home and has to be available 24 hours they receive $2 per hour. Our health care problem does not end with doctors coming into town. FA: Dr. Adams spoke to this matter at the SOHC forum. We definitely should have Level 3 (ability to resuscitate patients in transit) in Princeton. Level 4 if possible and practical as well. DP: New recruits don’t want to be here. They get their 6 week EMR course, then upgrade by taking the PCP course, which allows them to administer drugs among other things. New recruits are breaking their teeth in our community and then leave. They want to move on. There is not enough incentive to keep them here. There are 2 different levels of pay. RR: Over the winter I commuted weekly on Highway 3 and have seen several accidents on this stretch of road. I think Princeton has a good case for extended ambulance services. Question 7: An audience member at the Public Forum mentioned education as an important issue to recruit and keep doctors here. What are your thoughts on this issue? RD: Education is a core value of mine. I served on the Princeton Child and Youth Committee for 13 years and developed an understanding of the grass roots community and the relationship to education and our children’s development. Our children have close relationships with their community. They know their extended families, their neighbours, their histories, the geography of the Similkameen, the political issues and values. Our children participate in community activities. Community is part of their education, personal development and identity. Urban children don’t experience this. Our schools have excellent teachers and staff who are connected to the community as well as the schools they serve in. The Community Garden at John Allison School is an excellent example of formal education and community involvement, which was created by teachers working voluntarily. In the Community Garden, children have learned to be self-sufficient, to grow their own food, to produce a cookbook, and participate in nourishment and good health. I value this relationship between community and education. Princeton is a leader in this respect. The idea would be to illuminate and promote the value of interactive community and education in order to attract the right doctors to Princeton. FA: Key and critical. One of the things we have not done in the community is take advantage of untapped human resources. We have a large number of knowledgeable people in our community. I’ll be the first one to form advisory committees, giving specific tasks to provide recommendations to Council. For example: We would appoint 3-5 people with a professional background to serve as an educational advisory committee. This can be done on a cooperative basis. DP: It bothers me that people are commuting here for work in the mine. We have to attract families and it will snowball. Increase the numbers, that will snowball. More students will attract more teachers. Those are the key issues.

RR: I read with interest and dismay the Fraser Institute School Rankings report for 2012. Why is it that other similar communities in our area seem to be providing better quality education than we are? It bears investigation. Just because we are a small community there is no reason why our schools should be in the bottom third of provincial rankings. I am also hearing of another potential school closure in the district. I have one child now and one on the way and I want them to have a quality education. Question 8: How do you feel about the idea of opting out of IHA and appointing a local board to run the hospital? RD: IHA is top heavy and its roots into rural communities have been badly damaged, as demonstrated in Princeton. I would like to see mayors form a regional hospital support committee as well as recreate a local hospital board. I believe this is imperative to continued communication with IHA, on which we are dependent. I see a shifting of powers with the provincial elections hovering. Princeton’s SOHC has put rural health care on the political agenda front and center. I would like to see this local involvement remain in place. I believe a local hospital board is necessary. FA: My whole life has been about jumping in and doing it. If that is what it takes to get an acceptable and comfortable level of health care, I am all for it. I’ll be right at the front, if this is the only solution. Let’s go forward collectively. This is the biggest issue facing the town of Princeton since 1950. This has to be the priority; a proper facility staffed with enough doctors, because the way it is now, seniors who have the means, are leaving. We have to pull out all the stops. I think that Jason Earle, Brad Hope and the stakeholders committee have done an excellent job. DP: Isn’t that what we are doing now? Volunteers who find doctors? We just haven’t made it official. RR: If I am elected to Council, the idea of taking control of our own health care is very attractive to me. Everything I have read about IHA is that we have to fight tooth and nail for everything. We are all busy people and it should be a given that we have 24/7 ER. Although the ER is important, we shouldn’t have to be spending so much time and energy on it. Instead, we should be focusing on the long term issues. Question 9: Do you have any other thoughts you’d like to add? RD: SOHC has identified and defined the crisis our health care is experiencing and has spoken out against the deterioration of our hospital. As mayor I would support this vital community movement to the maximum. I worked as an employee of IHA for nearly 13 years and saw first hand how the operating room functioned and saved lives and how the dismantling of health care services has eroded the capacity of our hospital resources and consequently the capacity of doctors and nurses. A unified voice against further erosion is vital, and a unified proactive movement to restore our hospital’s losses is needed. This is a long term involvement to put “health� back into health care for Princeton. The leadership and empowerment SOHC has provided needs to be officially endorsed by mayor and council, and if elected will be my first duty in office. Thank you SOHC. FA: Why don’t we have a proper helicopter pad at or near the hospital? We have to learn from the Noel Ashley experience.

SpotlightOPINION There’s a spoonful of poop in the barrel of honey... Lisa Carleton lisa@similkameenspotlight.com

At least that is what it seems when it comes to the emergency room crisis with our local hospital. Our ER remains closed four nights per week and we have still only two doctors serving the community on an emergency basis on top of their already fully filled work days. How long are these two gentlemen expected to continue like this? I’m no doctor, but I sure as heck bet they are completely exhausted. Much gratitude to both of them for caring enough to continue. I know that there are people from our community working tirelessly to come up with solutions to rectify both our immediate ER crisis and to find long term solutions to our hospital issues. Volunteers, community leaders and industry spending hours upon hours researching and attending countless number of meetings...understandable, our community is in crisis and these individuals are doing all they can to help. What I don’t really understand is WHY. The Interior Health Authority mission is to—and I quote directly from their website, “Promote healthy lifestyles and provide needed health services in a timely, caring, and efficient manner, to the highest professional and quality standards.” Ahem... exhausting the current resources (our two doctors) is not timely, nor caring or efficient. Sending patients for care well over an hour away is not timely, nor caring or efficient. (Remember the golden hour?) Forcing people who already pay for services not even being rendered to come up with more funding, more expenses (the provision of locum housing) and having to deal with more stress is not timely, nor caring and by no means is it efficient. Cutting services from rural communities while larger centers are getting new wings, new equipment and even new hospitals does not seem timely, nor caring or efficient. I do understand that there are shades of grey in every situation, but there is always a solution if you pay close enough attention. Princeton and Area H have come up with funding, housing and a list of doctors willing to provide coverage in the ER. Yet our ER remains closed four nights a week. Would someone please explain to me, how and when the almighty dollar become more valuable than a human life!

Billboard Aimed at MP Pension Reform The Canadian Taxpayers Federation (CTF) launched a new billboard campaign July 25 aimed at ensuring Canadians from coast-to-coast know just how lopsided the current MP pension scheme really is. Billboards sporting the message “For every $1 an MP puts into their pension, taxpayers put in $24” were put up today in Vancouver, Calgary, Regina, Ottawa and Halifax. The Vancouver billboard can be found on Nootka Street, just south of East Broadway. “The MP platinum pension plan is the peak of political pork,” said Jordan Bateman, the CTF’s B.C. Director. “Taxpayers are sick and tired of pouring money into MP pensions when their own retirement funds are shaky at best.” The goal of the billboard campaign is to get Canadians to take action this summer and put pressure on their MPs, opposition leaders and the prime minister before they come out with their MP pension reform plan this fall. Canadians are encouraged to text “TAX” to 212121, so they can sign the CTF’s petition, e-mail the Prime Minister and learn more about the MP pension plan. “We know the government is planning to modify the MP pension plan this fall, and we want to make sure it’s a full-blown overhaul and not just a minor tinker,” said CTF Federal Director, Gregory Thomas. “If they go from the current $24 from taxpayers for every $1 from an MP ratio, down to $18 to $1 or $12 to $1, that’s simply not going to cut it.” The CTF is calling on MPs to shut down the current MP pension scheme and join a new $1 for $1 matching RRSP-style pension plan. Further, the CTF would like to see a “Lavigne rule” put in place to ensure parliamentarians convicted of offences relating to their office are barred from collecting parliamentary pension benefits.

“Many British Columbians have been very concerned by the closure of the Kitsilano Coast Guard station,” said Bateman. “Ottawa’s dirty little secret is that the $900,000 a year saved by the Kits closure could be covered by the year one pension payouts for B.C.’s Conservative caucus. Instead of putting tax dollars into important services, they are going into MP pension accounts.” In 2010-11 MPs and Senators contributed a combined $4.5 million to the parliamentary pension accounts, while taxpayers contributed $110.7 million ($26.7 million in contributions and $84 million in ‘interest’ and actuarial adjustments).

YourOPINION

Paperwork unfinished — deadline ignored! Open letter to Premier Christy Clark Ms. Clark: If time were a tradeable commodity we could all point to the waste and sadly shake our heads in frustrated bewilderment. I am addressing the Emergency Room closures suffered by the community of Princeton B.C. Most would think that a major highway (3500 vehicles an hour during summer) would be a deterrent to closure of an essential service like emergency room coverage. People would also feel the same of a town with twenty-four hour industry. A mine and mill both run here 24/7. Normally the powers that be would be enough to rectify this constitutionally illegal action. Indeed, your own minister of health issued a deadline of July 12th, 2012 for a resolution. It is now the 23rd and I write to you simply because Minister Michael de Jong’s underlings at the Interior Health Authority seem to think he wasn’t exactly serious. Paperwork is unfinished. How does it work when a Ministerial deadline is ignored? Any other type of business would require a disciplinary action or dismissal. Interior Health Authority hasn’t even done a shuffle, as government does to avoid bad press. It’s bad enough to run for cover. It is something else again to put constituents lives at risk nightly, and expect the same kind of protection as you try and sweep attention under the carpet. I realize you may be a ‘busy’ person, however, as Premier of

B.C. do you not have an obligation to the safety and well being of British Columbians? The people of Princeton are not satisfied with partial E.R. coverage. Not while they pay taxes based upon 24/7 coverage. Perhaps the people of B.C. ought to have a tax rebate for services NOT rendered. Again, a deadline was imposed by your minister and ignored. It sets a very dangerous precedent, don’t you think? If a minister of the province can be totally disregarded by the people who work for him direct, how is the rest of B.C. to take anything your government says seriously? Any further delay will seemingly force the addition of lawyers into the mix. We all know how that goes, cameras, news stories and press that is unflattering at best, career crippling at worst. I see two stances you can take, that of an out of touch health authority (eyes blind, ears deaf) or as an active concerned leader with the very real interest of B.C. voters in mind. It’s your choice, but it is our lives & health that hang in the balance. As you are the last possible human with the authority to fix this situation, I await your swift, competent solution.

KELOWNA, B.C. – July 26, 2012: FortisBC proposes to continue improving and modernizing its electrical grid with an Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) project in an application filed today with the BC Utilities Commission. With this filing, FortisBC begins a public and transparent regulatory process that will end with a decision from the BC Utilities Commission determining whether or not FortisBC can begin its AMI project. Should FortisBC receive a positive decision, the utility would proceed to upgrade its electrical grid by exchanging close to 115,000 manually read meters with advanced meters and incorporating the supporting hardware and software. The project is expected to cost approximately $48 million and save customers $19 million over the life of the project. Meter exchanges would begin in 2014 and be complete by the end of 2015. “FortisBC believes this project will provide enhanced customer service and better value for our customers,� said Tom Loski, vice president of customer service at FortisBC. “When the project is complete, our electricity customers will have a chance for the first time to see in near real-time how much electricity they are using and will be able to make more informed decisions regarding

My priority is my family and I have spent my first year here finding and moving into a new home and searching for employment. Now that we are settled here, I am studying the issues and will pursue solutions with all my energy. There are many issues in Princeton and we have to set our priorities and then pursue them with vigor. Then we can succeed. I feel I have a responsibility to get involved and I have the tools to make a difference.

RCMP detachment area who match the criteria for chronic nuisance offender. The Area Commander supports a “Zero Tolerance� approach in regards to repeat offenders, in particular those on conditions. All breaches are treated as incustody investigations and offenders are either held for a Bail Hearing through the JJP process or escorted to Penticton to stand before a Judge. Crime analyst reports are used to target high crime areas. Crime Stoppers Crime Stoppers received one tip relating to events in Princeton during the first quarter of 2012. Youth The Area Commander has designated school zones as a priority for the detachment. Members are committed to the safety of the youth in the community and provide a daily presence, morning and afternoon, in school zones throughout the community.

conservation.� Project highlights include: $19 million in savings over the life of the project helping to keep rates lower for electricity customers. Enhanced information to help customers manage their electricity consumption, including the ability to see how much power has been used since the last bill. Improved ability for FortisBC to detect and restore power outages. Reduced electricity theft – FortisBC estimates that $3.7 million of electricity is stolen annually – revenues that would otherwise reduce customer rates. FortisBC notes the timing of the project also corresponds with new standards from Measurement Canada requiring greater meter accuracy. The enhanced accuracy requirements will require FortisBC to exchange approximately 80,000 electromechanical meters with digital meters whether the AMI project goes ahead or not. FortisBC is evaluating the business case for advanced meters for natural gas, but at this time has no plans for a similar deployment of remote gas meter reading technology.

Congratulations! Sharon Anderson Contributed

The Princeton Kokanees have completed Shark Week proving kids can have lots of fun while working hard! Swimmers attended grueling practices all week designed to build muscles and stamina. Coaches put the team through a tough regime in preparation for the upcoming regional and provincial swim meets. Shark Week started with a family picnic

at Bromley Rock. The week included five crazy costume days for coaches Lindsay van Genne and Alyssa Larson, eight hardcore practices for swimmers, three early mornings, dry land training, dancing, yelling, water fights, thunder, lightning and rain, before concluding with a pizza night and movie at Riverside Theatre. Fantastic job everyone! Regionals here we come. Who haha!

MILLER, WILLIAM HYATT February 20, 1916 - July 24, 2012 William Hyatt Miller was born in Rossland, BC on Feb. 20, 1916. His parents were William Stewart Miller and Evelyn Miller. He and his family came to Princeton in 1919. Bill had 4 sisters, Jean Dunsmore/Broomfield (deceased), May Savage (deceased) Louise Mullin (deceased) and Beth Norman (Jim Sr.) and 2 brothers Wilfred (died in infancy) and Bob (deceased). Bill was married to his first wife, Nadine, in 1940. She died in 1970. They had 3 children: Karen (Craig), Mary-Lou and Bill Jr. (Patsy). He married his second wife Connie in 1976. He had 2 step children, Leda Leander and Steven Leander. Bill had 15 grandchildren, 25 great grandchildren and 5 great great grandchildren. He will also be sadly missed by his many nieces and nephews who live throughout BC and Alberta and one in South America and his many great nieces and nephews and great great nieces and nephews. During the early depression years Bill worked on farms and for West Kootenay Power on power line construction. He spent 43 years in the mining industry mainly for Granby and associate companies at Allenby, Copper Mountain, Granisle (Plant Superintendent), Phoenix Copper (Manager), and Vancouver. He was also closely associated with Western Nickel, Jedway Iron Ore and Granduc. While in Vancouver he worked on many feasibility studies and spent time as manager of a mine in Southeast Africa. Late in 1979 Granby was sold to Noranda so he retired and moved back to Princeton. He has travelled extensively over the world. He said recently: “my health and happiness over the last 36 years is mainly due to my lovely and loving wife, Connie, and I have had a good life and have been extremely proud of all my family and my extended family”. He loved the great outdoors, loved to fish and could be seen frequently at MacKenzie Lake and at many of the streams, lakes and rivers in the Princeton area. He will be sadly missed by all of his large family and his many many friends. A celebration of life will be held at the Tulameen Community Hall Saturday August 11, 2012 at 1:00 pm. In Lieu of flowers donation can be made to the Princeton General Hospital.

NOTICE:

ARIES

You might feel a little trapped between wanting to have fun and needing to fulfill your responsibilities. You’ll be very happy when friends come to your rescue. TAURUS

Whether you’re close to home or already on vacation, you will feel inspired to seek out adventure and discover different cultures from around the world. GEMINI

This will be an emotionally intense week. A few disagreements could hurt your pride, but you are a sociable person and you will succeed in restoring peace. CANCER

It may be hard to reach an agreement with other people about how to share an enjoyable activity. Stay the course, be loyal to your true desires, and everything will turn out successfully. LEO

You will receive an invitation to participate in a fabulous experience, one that might involve crowds of people. You will love being part of all the festivity. VIRGO

You’ll be in the right place at the right time to receive a boost to your selfesteem. This might take the form of helping a person in distress, for example. LIBRA

Our supplier for crosswords and horoscopes has changed. We hope you enjoy the new formats!

If you’re spending your vacation at home, you might feel inspired to redecorate. Reinforcements will arrive in the form of family and friends who will give you a helping hand. SCORPIO

You will likely do a lot of driving during your vacation. Have your vehicle checked by a mechanic and make sure you keep the gas topped up in order to avoid any sort of worry this week.

You will feel like treating yourself, and even a tight budget won’t slow you down. Don’t take offense when your loved ones or your life partner suggest taking over the finances. CAPRICORN

You will definitely want to be active and get lots of things done. This is a good time to create a whole new lifestyle, such as focusing more on spirituality, for example.

HOW TO PLAY: Fill in the grid so that every row, every column, and every 3x3 box contains the numbers 1 through 9 only once. Each 3x3 box is outlined with a darker line. You already have a few numbers to get you started. Remember: You must not repeat the numbers 1 through 9 in the same line, column, or 3x3 box.

You might be tempted to make a decision rather hastily. You will be able to make a wiser choice once the moon is full. PISCES

After a busy social life you will really need to rest and recharge your batteries. The best place for this will be in the comfort of your own home.
