Candidates meet the voters The Royal Canadian Legion Hall was filled with voters on July 31 for the All Candidates meeting Lisa Carleton lisa@similkameenspotlight.com

Candidates for mayor, Frank Armitage and Rosemary Doughty as well as councillor candidates Doug Pateman and Rob Rubis met with voters on July 31 during the All Candidates meeting hosted by the Princeton and District Chamber of Commerce. Keith Olsen and Lori Thomas emceed the evening. The evening was an opportunity for voters to ask questions of the candidates. The topics of concern were; the largest being of Princeton’s health care crisis, the environment, an aquatics center, local government spending, low cost housing, support of arts & culture, attraction of business and families to Princeton, support of local business and cost of shopping locally. Each candidate was given a timed segment to answer questions both written in and directly from the floor. At the end of the meeting, candidates gave closing statements and voters were then able to speak with them individually if desired. REMINDER: Voting day for the municipal by-election is this coming Saturday, August 11, 2012 between the hours of 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. at the Royal Canadian Legion Hall, 170 Bridge Street.

HOPE, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire) Missing: Jessica Janis Webber Age: 16 years old Description: 5’4”, 96 pounds, brown shoulder length hair and brown eyes Jessica Janis Webber, a 16 year old girl from Hope British Columbia, was last seen on July 8, 2012, at 5:00 AM at her residence. Jessica is described as 5’4”, 96 pounds, with brown shoulder length hair and brown eyes. It is believed she has travelled to Alberta by hitching rides. Police have confirmed that Jessica attended a friend’s residence in Wetaskiwin Alberta on July 9th. She has family and friends in Wetaskiwin, Hay River, Lethbridge and Red Deer. On July 17th, police confirmed that Jessica contacted a friend in Campbell River, BC, and advised the friend that she was in Alberta. Jessica’s family is very worried about her as they have not heard from her since she went missing. Jessica lives a high risk lifestyle and has gone

missing on several occasions previous.

As lofty goals go, it’s right up there: make this the healthiest community in North America. “It’s a vision,” Gerry Karr said. “A vision should inspire you.” The retired Penticton doctor’s vision includes every major community partner in the region represented in a single coalition that will promote the joy of healthy living. “Everybody’s doing the best they can, but they’re not collaborating.” Karr is the president of the OkanaganSimilkameen Healthy Living Society, which had been responsible for annual fairs in Penticton. The 2012 edition was scuttled, though, due to a lack of funding and to allow the society to shift its focus to spawning the new coalition. He hopes to have its charity status secured by the end of August and then expects member groups to gather for an inaugural meeting in September to hammer out a formal board structure. He said the society will continue on as the coalition’s “community base,” and also get the annual fairs back on track. The need for a heightened emphasis on preventative medicine is one the health advocate has seen up close. As he inched towards his 2003 retirement, Karr, who specialized in the treatment of chronic kidney disease, saw an escalating number of people with multiple health conditions who were unwell, had a poor quality of life and whose treatment cost the health system dearly. “I thought: We’ve got to do a better job upstream.” By upstream, he means children and families, who it’s hoped will adopt a healthy lifestyle that will keep them out of doctors’ offices as they age. The coalition should also support seniors and others who want to improve their health, Karr said, “but our emphasis will be families.” Some programs Karr envisions include utilizing local triathletes to help coach beginners, a website that will connect people with online support, and an expansion of recreational activities similar to the Penticton Steps Out walking program. “The nice thing about the coalition is it’s going to come up with ideas that I haven’t thought of,” added Karr, a former president of the B.C. Medical Association. Five partners that have already expressed support

Gerry Karr, a retired Penticton doctor, is hoping a new coalition will help make this the healthiest community in North America.

include the City of Penticton, Interior Health and the Penticton Indian Band, he said, but Karr hopes up to 19 agencies from across the region will eventually be represented by the coalition. PIB Chief Jonathan Kruger said local First Nations have placed an emphasis through their health departments on a return to a leaner, more traditional diet to combat a rise in diabetes. “We’re really pushing for people to catch salmon and get wild game like deer, moose and elk into our systems,” Kruger said, adding he welcomes the opportunity to join forces with other local governments to share knowledge. Karr said he expects the coalition will need a six-figure budget to be effective, but anticipates that heavyweights on the board will be able to help secure grants from higher levels of government. His society is also seeking a volunteer secretary. Anyone interested in the position can contact Karr at 250-493-5537.

A subtle reminder Lisa Carleton lisa@similkameenspotlight.com

Every once in a while an experience can take place that serves as a reminder of how one should not take advantage of or forget to be grateful for what you have. Growing up here I lived my life among the rich beauty of our area. I fished the lakes and rivers, camped by them and swam in them. My favourite past time as a child was to sit by the river and either draw in my sketchbook or write poetry. I’ve hiked our mountains and hills, did a little repelling, and experienced adventure camping and family camping in them as well. I lived in a few cities, but always ended up coming back. Princeton is where my children grew up, having many of the same experiences as I had. This past weekend served me with a reminder of how lucky we are to live in such a pristine and beautiful place. On Saturday, my sister (visiting from Alberta) and I took a trip out to Tulameen and then out to Hedley. We enjoyed a bit of the Tulameen Family Fun Days celebrations, walked down to Otter Lake, then headed out to Hedley. There, we visited the Hedley museum, enjoyed speaking with a gentleman volunteer who was quite knowledgable of the mining history of the area. Then we decided to go looking through the shops. We had a great deal of fun and made a few purchases a the Hedley Trading Post which definitely had “unusual gifts for exceptional people.” I purchased a beautiful handmade dream catcher for my daughter Cori, who celebrated her 20th birthday on Sunday. Cori and her boyfriend Jerry came to spend the week here in Princeton. Cori decided that she would like to spend her birthday on the river doing what she had done so many times as a child. The five of us, including my son Mike, packed up a cooler filled with food and refreshments and loaded two trucks with river tubes, a boat to tow the cooler and headed out on the Similkameen River for the day. My sister Charity, Cori and Jerry kept commenting on how beautiful it was here and how relaxed they felt just drifting along the river. They caused me to remember how lucky I was to be living here and how easy and inexpensive it was to enjoy this beautiful area.

An apology to the residents of Princeton To the residents of Princeton and to anyone else my actions may have affected: I am apologizing for my actions which took place on November 25, 2011, in Princeton, BC. I became extremely intoxicated on the evening of this day and caused mischief within the downtown area of Princeton. I vandalized a number of road signs and entered several cars which I did not own legally. The items I removed from these cars have been returned to their rightful owners and any damages done to road signs and public property have been repaid. I accept full responsibility for these actions and have since done a lot of thinking about where I am going in life. As a result of my offences I was very scared. Within a few days of the event I went to my local RCMP station and confessed to all I had done, admitting to the constable what I had done was not only frightening, but extremely embarrassing to myself and my family. The RCMP were already aware that it was I who had committed the offence, and it was only a matter of time before they either showed up at my school, home, or work to inform me that I was being held responsible for my actions. After speaking with

the RCMP I was contacted by my current probation officer and I went to have a meeting with them. My parents were unbelievably disappointed in me, and all I wished to do was make things right. I believe my wrong doings against the townspeople of Princeton has made their quiet little town seem less secure, and the vandalism which I inflicted on public property must have really hurt how peaceful and quaint the downtown area always looks. I have learned a lot from this experience, have since quit drinking entirely, and have thought long and hard about where I wish to go in life. If there was one thing I could do, it would be to go back to that night and never go through with my actions of the evening. I have so much regret for what I did that night, as Princeton is where I grew up, and the damage I brought against the kind people and beautiful streets of my little town has haunted me these past few months. I am extremely sorry to all who have been affected by my actions, and out of the bottom of my heart I give my sincerest apologies. Name withheld—as per the Youth Criminal Justice Act.

What is going on...What is the hold up? Dear Editor: What is going on? Time and time again, IHA has acted on bad faith. It has thrown innumerable obstacles to stop the progress of meaningful talks and solutions. The bottom line is, IHA wants to destroy the Princeton ER and gives us something less than a hospital, and it wants those pushing for ER 24/7 to just go away. But this is not going to happen. I know of 3 individuals who have worked tirelessly researching information and providing this information to all the stakeholders. These individuals have remained in the background, not seeking personal glory, just wanting to get for the community what it deserves, 24/7 ER coverage. Work cannot begin on a long term solution until the immediate problem is dealt with. So what is the hold up? The doctors from Princeton only found out about REEF when they attended a conference of rural physicians. REEF existed but IHA did not enlightened communities about its existence. Under this program, every rural community is entitled to $200,000 for its hospital operation. The doctors waited for 6 months before IHA sent them the application, and this was

after constantly asking for the form. When the stakeholders group met with minister deJong on June 28, the application was miraculously faxed the next day! The minister of health gave a deadline of July 12 for a resolution to occur. Princeton Stakeholders did their homework; IHA dragged their feet another week. Princeton would not get the $200,00 but only $165,000 and the contract was signed and everyone was ready for a celebration. Then on July 30th IHA did a turnabout. It said the original contract would not insure 24/7 coverage, a second application would need to be signed. Princeton would now be receiving $190,000 but the administrative assistant who would look after the REEF program would not be paid $18,000/yr. (mere peanuts for the work involved), but would be paid $12,000/yr. It made no sense, and a deadlock ensued. IHA did it again. Princeton’s position is precarious... Hopefully, things will be resolved, but the battle has not been won yet. Sincerely, M. Masiel Princeton

Diagnosis—IHA broken faith with Princeton Dear Editor: We have all heard about bumbling bureaucrats wasting public money and doing little work for their bloated salaries, bonuses and pensions. IHA has taken this kind of nonsense to a new level. They are spending their energies sabotaging health care in Princeton. A month ago a stakeholders table consisting of local elected officials, first nations, local industry, and community leaders meet with Health Minister, Michael DeJonge. Industry kicked in money to get things rolling, with long term funding to be provided by REEF. The Rural Emergency Enhancement Fund was established by the province in 2011 and renewed in 2012. $10,000,000 was allocated each year to help rural communities in B.C. Princeton’s share for 2012 is about $200,000. IHA was intended to be the trustee of these public funds, not the beneficiary. IHA has repeatedly put up roadblocks to keep Princeton from getting these funds. This money will pay for locums to give our hard-working doctors a much needed break from ER duties.

Flowers and Plants for every day and every occassion.

The doctors and community minded volunteers have jumped through all the hoops only to be told “We send you the wrong application, etc.” Blah, Blah, Blah. Why is IHA acting this way? Possible answers: Orders came from higher up the political food chain. By not spending the money in Princeton, the IHA bureaucrats are able to spend it on themselves, or to support a bloated bureaucracy To punish Princeton and deter any rural community that might want a say in how healthcare is delivered in their town. IHA didn’t like being shown up by a bunch of local yokels with a “ Get it done” country attitude when it comes to getting locum coverage in the ER.

BACK PAIN: SELF CARE Julie Traballo

Wednesday, August 8, 2012 Similkameen Spotlight

Jennifer Gillcash

If you have back pain, begin with an appointment with your healthcare provider. When the problem is diagnosed, treatment will be suggested. Often back pain will go away by itself. Back pain is treatable. However, you are the most important member of the healthcare team in treating your pain. Learn about your back, its anatomy and function. Learn how to return your back to a healthy state and how to keep it strong and healthy. Learn what good posture is. Practice safe body mechanics to prevent re-injury. Keeping your weight within normal range helps to prevent back pain. Self-care of the back starts with relieving the immediate pain. Pain can be relieved with ice or heat. Either a cloth-covered ice pack or a gearing pad on low can be put on the back for no more than 20 minutes 4 to 8 times a day. This will help to relieve the pain. Bed rest is not suggested for more than a couple of days, as it can weaken muscles. It may help to rest for 1 to 2 days. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), such as aspirin or ibuprofen, may be recommend for the pain. Aspirin or medicines that have aspirin in them should not be given to anyone younger than 18 years of age. Taking aspirin is a risk for a serious illness called Reye’s syndrome. NSAIDs should be taken with food or milk to prevent stomach upset. NSAIDs should not be taken by anyone who has been diagnosed with asthma, ulcer disease, or a bleeding disorder. Taking NSAIDs increases the risk of bleeding with trauma, dental work, surgery, or if taking blood thinners (anticoagulants). Some people like to use a support belt for the back. A belt may help some people at first, but should only be used for a short time. If used for a long time, a back support belt can make the back weaker. A good night’s rest is important for back recovery. If the pain is preventing a good night’s rest, make sure that the mattress is supportive and comfortable. Sleep on your side with your knees bent. Sometimes it helps to put a pillow between the knees while sleeping. When sleeping on your back, be sure to put pillow under your knees to take the strain off your back.

• Weakness • Trouble speaking • Vision problems • Headache • Dizziness The Heart and Stroke Foundation of BC and Yukon wants you to do what you can to reduce your risk of stroke, know the signs and act quickly when a stroke happens to you or someone you’re with. You can’t do anything about some of the risk factors like age, gender and family history. But there are others you can control with good lifestyle choices

that include eating a healthy diet, being physically activity, having your blood pressure checked regularly and being smoke-free. With stroke, every second truly counts. For every minute of delay in treating a stroke, the average person loses millions of brain cells. Yet almost 40 per cent of Canadians arrive at the hospital more than 12 hours after their symptoms start. Acting quickly can affect which treatments can be given as well as your health and recovery after the stroke. Education and fast action can help people live longer, better lives after stroke. For more information on the signs of stroke, and how you can reduce your risk, speak to your doctor or visit the Heart and Stroke Foundation of BC and Yukon online at www.heartandstroke.bc.ca

(NC)—Walking is one of the most affordable and convenient exercises to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Walking has been proven to lower blood pressure, reduce the risk or manage type 2 diabetes, manage weight, reduce bad cholesterol levels, and reduce the risk of heart disease or heart attack. For senior citizens, it’s also a safe way to stay healthy. If all of that weren’t enough reason to lace up your walking shoes, setting goals and creating a sense of achievement is a great way to motivate yourself to exercise more. Adding steps to your day comes down to a change in your behavior and being aware of your actions, explains Dr. Shannon Bredin, a behavior specialist and assistant professor in the University of British Columbia’s School of Kinesiology. According to Dr. Bredin, tracking is an effective form of self-monitoring that can help motivate a person. Tracking can measure and help regulate your behavior. But it isn’t easy to accurately quantify your physical activity.

Great little tools are also available to help track your activity. For example, there’s a new and affordable device from a Canadian company that’s a digital pedometer, and much more. Take a look at www.tractivityonline.com to see how it works. Tractivity is lightweight and easy to use. A digital sensor conveniently attaches to your shoe or inside special insoles and records your steps. The Tractivity software securely stores your activity information, including your goals and walking history. It illustrates your progress by showing a record of your steps, distance travelled, time active, and the calories burned in a fun and motivational manner. It also presents you with virtual awards as you reach milestones. Tracking how many steps you take each day may surprise you. This includes your walk from the bus to work, the walk to the corner store, taking the stairs, gardening, and even a few trips to the office water cooler. Be aware however, that many people don’t have a good understanding of whether or not they get enough physical activity every day. A common mistake, experts say, is using the scale to measure the progress of a fitness regime. Dr. Bredin advises that you would get more accurate information by measuring your level of physical activity – like the steps you take in a day – than you would from a number on the scale. Tracking your activity is like signing a contract with yourself, she explains. It objectively measures your exercise and increases your understanding and perception of what you are doing. “Tracking is one tool that allows you to be accountable to your goal.” Dr. Bredin says it’s also critical to set the right goals and measure the right outcomes. “You don’t want your goals to be too easy so that there is no satisfaction in fulfilling them, but you also can’t make them so difficult that they frustrate you. The secret to setting goals is to strike a balance between achievability and creating a real challenge for yourself.”

Greyhound to close in Keremeos Steve Arstad Keremeos / Okanagan Falls Review

Public transportation in the Similkameen could take another hit in mid August as Keremeos’ present bus depot location gives up the business. Sandy Taylor, who manages the Greyhound depot presently located at 604 -7th Avenue, recently announced her intention to relinquish the business by the middle of this month. “I thought when I took this on that it wouldn’t require many hours in a day to handle,” Taylor said, “but I’m finding that it needs more “full time” attention, which interferes with the time I can spend helping Darryl.” (Partner Darryl Letkeman runs Canadian Chopper in the same building.) Taylor said that the passenger and freight business in Keremeos continues to be steady, with the depot providing service to three buses per day - an eastbound bus at 5 a.m., westbound at 9 a.m., and a short haul route heading east to Osoyoos or Rock Creek at 12:25 p.m. Taylor added that most of the depot’s earnings are based on commission, with the 9 a.m. bus generating the most revenue. Taylor said her workday is generally over shortly after the arrival of the last bus at noon. Should Greyhound not be able to find someone in Keremeos willing to take on the depot, it would mean yet another reduction to public transportation in the Similkameen valley. Over the past decade, the number of daily buses through the valley has declined in what is essentially the only form of public transportation available in the area, other than a twice weekly handyDart shuttle that is primarily focussed on transporting people with medical issues to regional centres like Penticton and Kelowna. Presently, Hedley is the only other community in the Similkameen with a bus depot; Princeton is presently without one, and the depot in Osoyoos only handle passengers, not freight. “This would be a great opportunity to supplement an existing business in Kermeos,” Taylor said. She is hopeful someone will come forward before August 15 to take on the business and continue the service in Keremeos without interuption.

centres, churches and music festivals. The songs they sing were all passed down to them from generation to generation and were all learned by ear, as there is no music written for them. The quartet Zeellia comes to the Festival this year from Vancouver. “Zeellia” is the Ukrainian word for herb as well as for the power of herbs to effect reality. Zeellia weaves a mystical spell by singing and playing Slavic folk songs and dances from the Ukraine, the Balkans and the Canadian prairies. The blessings and the curses, the water and the wood, the fire and the fields and, of course, the herbs, all combine to give voice to a unique Slavic-Canadian expression that respects its Ukrainian roots and celebrates its Canadian content. It is “Slavic soul” connecting the past with the present and the old country with the new. These are just two of the performing groups appearing at this year’s Festival as part of the “Princetonograd” theme, and the best thing about it is it’s free! The reason it’s free is because it’s run entirely by volunteers and the performers are donating their talents. To make the festival a success the organizers will need lots of volunteers. If you’d like to get involved, please contact them. Even if you have only a couple of hours available your help would be most welcome. Give them a call and they’ll welcome you aboard. To find out more visit the Festival’s webblog at princetontraditional.org or give Jon and Rika a call at 295-6010.

Prospects in the Similkameen - Part 1 Steve Arstad Keremeos / Okanagan Falls Review

From the Sunday Summit on the Hope - Princeton Highway to the lofty peak of Snowy Mountain, the Similkameen valley is laced with former and producing mines, prospects, quarries and semi-precious gemstone sites. The economy of the valley has been historicially tied to the mining industry, but over the years the importance of this industry has been diminished or downplayed due to market conditions and environmental concerns. Is the time right for the Similkameen to look at this industry more carefully? With the national park debate silenced, a struggling global economy and advancements in mining and exploration technology, are there business opportunities that could add prosperity - and perhaps present opportunities that could someday make the Similkameen a truly unique tourism brand? The Review has put together a four part series of articles that describes some innovative ideas - and projects that could provide numerous economic benefits to the Similkameen. Beginning with this issue, we look at the potential of the largest (former) mining operation in the Lower Similkameen, and a few of the local businessmen who are hoping to bring new life to an old industry. This past February, shortly after the province of B.C. announced their withdrawl of support for a national park in the South Okanagan-Similkameen, Silver Fields Resources Inc. (TSXV: SF) was granted a drilling permit for their mining property in the South Similkameen. Silver Fields controls the former Dankoe Mine property, located approximately 20 kilometres south of Keremeos, just off Highway 3. It was a hopeful sign for the mining industry in the Lower Similkameen, which has seen difficult times in the last decade due to uncertainty surrounding the prospect for a national park in the area. A number of local prospects are now receiving renewed interest, in an area known historically for low tonnage, high grade deposits. Silver Fields exploration plans for 2012 include mechanized trenching and sampling as well as up to 2,000 metres of drilling as recommended by Mr. Peter Folk, P.Eng., the mine geologist of the former Dankoe-Utica Silver Mine, and Silver Fields’ project geologist. Cawston Mining Technologist Ron Schneider is the local agent for Silver Fields. He worked at the mine for five years between 1975 and 1980, using the earnings to pay for his farm. “At today’s prices, Dankoe Mine yielded 100 million dollars worth of ore in 25 years. It has provided industrial level jobs to more than 40 people,” Schneider said. He and Grant Crooker of Keremeos have spent close to four decades prospecting, staking and working local mining properties. Schnieder has played an active role in local mining since graduating from BCI in 1972. Crooker’s story is similar, having graduated at a similar time. “I’ve always had claims locally,” Crooker said. Since 2000, Crooker has been working for Goldcliff Resource Corp., (Goldcliff Resource Corporation (TSX.V-GCN))who have mining interests in Hedley. Mining has played a big role in the development

of the Lower Similkameen. The discoveries on Nickel Plate Mountain, above Hedley brought the railway to the Similkameen; to the east of Keremeos, the Fairview gold camp was one of the earliest camps in B.C., giving rise to the region’s first settlement. In the latter part of the 20th century and again in the Depression era of the 1930’s, numerous prospects and mines in the mountains between Oliver and Keremeos provided a livelihood for many residents of the region when there was nothing else to do. The two prospectors have taken an interest in several properties in the area, as recent high prices for gold boosts interest in the area as a mining region once again. Mining companies’ interest in the region rises and falls with metal prices; at today’s gold price in the $1,500 an ounce range, both Crooker and Schneider believe the area has potential for the development of low tonnage, high grade underground operations that would have a minimal impact on the environment. Schneider recently restaked a former gold prospect located a few kilometres east of Cawston, off the Cawston - Fairview road. Results from a recent sampling program undertaken by Schneider revealed values of 8.23 grams of gold per ton across 1.8 metres ($439). A second surface sample yielded 274 grams per ton of gold ($14,250), while a third adit (tunnel) grab sample graded 30.86 grams of gold ($1,640)and 394 grams of silver per ton ($388). At today’s precious metals prices, a small underground project could prove to be very profitable, if reserves can be proven up. Schneider also has interests in industrial minerals; last year he hauled $15,000 worth of landscaping rock from a quarry near Yellow Lake. He has worked with OK Stoneworks’ Peter Buckowsky, who cuts and polishes the rock into headstones and other items such as the rock signage at Memorial Park. The long running debate over a national park in the area has put a damper on mining activities in the region, as few companies are willing to invest in a property which they may not be compensated for. Stakeholders must be aware that history has shown that promises made without signing on the dotted line are seldom kept. “Expropriated mining properties were to be compensated in a ‘fair and timely’ manner,” Schneider said. “It’s been 12 years since protected areas were established and nothing has been settled. Last October, for instance, the B.C. government had to settle for ‘lost opportunity’ on uranium claims in the Beaverdell area. That cost provincial taxpayers $30,000,000. There are approximately 200 expropriated properties in B.C. to settle – I’ll leave you to do the math.” The Land Resource Management Plan was put together between 1995 and 2000 by local stakeholders. Mining interests were “sacrificed in the Snowy Mountain area in order to satisfy the majority and make the deal. Schneider see elements of a “divide and conquer” approach at work, as stakeholder groups are progressively targeted for exclusion. “We no sooner got the LRMP completed, and Parks Canada moved in,” concluded Schnieder. “This time it’s the other stakeholders rights that are on the line.” Next week: At the western end of the Similkameen valley, mining interests are developing a zeal for zeolites in Part two of Prospects in the Similkameen.

Life can be challenging when your home keeps being removed. But that’s exactly what the Lewis’s Woodpecker faces on an annual basis. This threatened bird occurs throughout much of BC’s Southern Interior, but is most abundant in the Okanagan Valley. The Lewis’s Woodpecker is classified as a federally threatened species due to its small and locally distributed populations, restricted range, and loss of habitat. It is estimated that fewer than 1000 individuals occur in the province. The Lewis’s Woodpecker nests in cavities of Ponderosa pine, Douglas-fir or black cottonwood trees. This migratory woodpecker returns to the Okanagan in May every year, and nests from mid-June to late July. Widespread clearing of pine forests and cottonwood stands is likely responsible for much of the species’ decline. Increasing human development in the interior continues to result in the loss of important habitat for this woodpecker. Fire suppression in Ponderosa pine forests is common practice in the province, and results in the development of dense stands that are entirely unsuitable for Lewis’s Woodpecker. Management of these forests will be the main factor in deciding the future of the species in Canada. This woodpecker is unique looking with its glossy greenish-black head, back, wings and tail, a rosy belly, grey collar and breast and a red face.

her at witsos@shaw.ca.

Its flight pattern is distinctive from other woodpeckers. They fly slow and direct, similar to crows or jays, with long glides and aerial manoeuvres. A local program referred to as the Wildlife Tree Stewardship Program is seeking the public’s help in recording sightings and nest trees of this rare woodpecker. If you spot a Lewis’s Woodpecker or identify a nest tree, please report it to the program’s Coordinator, Lisa Scott, at 250404-0115 or email

About Wildlife Tree Stewardship (WiTS) Program www.wildlifetree.ca The Wildlife Tree Stewardship Program, also known as WiTS, is a voluntary program that conserves wildlife tree habitats through volunteer monitoring (of wildlife trees and bird activity), landowner agreements, and community education. It was first established on Vancouver Island through the Federation of BC Naturalists and has since expanded to include the Lower Mainland and Okanagan-Similkameen. In the OkanaganSimilkameen, WiTS focuses on five bird species at risk. By identifying and monitoring nest sites of these bird species, WiTS aims to assist their recovery and help protect important habitat.

Ultraman Canada day 3 report Contributed

Leaving Princeton at 7am this morning, 31 athletes faced the last obstacle to becoming 2012 Ultraman Canada finishers, the 84.3km run. Chad Hon of Mobile, AL started the run off at a steady pace and was able to cross the finish line at Summerland Memorial Park in a time of 7:30:56, the fourth fastest run time ever. Stephen Stafford of Fayetteville, AR pounded out a steady pace to take second on the run with a time of 7:53:18, which was more than enough to maintain first place overall with a 3 day total time of 22:34:35. Stafford’s time was the second fastest time ever recorded for the 3 day Ultraman Canada course. Hon was able to secure second place with a total time of 23:09:29. James Player ran the third fastest time of the day with a 7:53:18. Player’s time moved him into the third overall place with a total time of 24:45:08. Consuela Lively of Winter Park, FL, came to the start line with the lead in the women’s division. She ran a consistent race on the 84.3km course to post a 9:10:33 time to finish as the 2012 Ultraman Canada Women’s champion with an overall time of 27:25:33. Katherine Calder-Becker, of Montreal, QC, maintained her second place overall with a

9:23:48 run and besting her personal record on this course by nearly 2 hours with a 27:54:36 total for the 3 days. Stacey Shand of Regina, SK rounded out the top 3 women on the run with a time of 9:29:39. Terry Craig of Penticton, BC was able to finish the run in a time of 10:48:14 to post a 3 day total time of 33:54:49. Unfortunately, Bruce Schoenne of Penticton, BC was not able to complete the double marathon distance. As the day came to a close, the finishers, crews, volunteers and race staff enjoyed food, stories and camaraderie—the essence of Ultraman. Many people accomplished their lifelong goals and others were touched, inspired and motivated to strive for their personal bests in all disciplines of their lives. The 2013 Ultraman Canada event will take place August 3-5. Please contact Steve Brown at Peach City Runners and Adventure Sports or www.ultramancanada.com if you are interested in participating.
