Riding accident in the Ashnola sends two to hospital; upper end of road to close for bridge repairs By Steve Arstad news@keremeosreview.com

Victims thrown from horses were able to access cellphone service Two men are lucky to be alive after their horses spooked during

a trail ride high up the Ashnola valley on Thursday, August 16. Police received a 911 call just before 8 p.m. on the 16th. One of the horsemen was able to use his cellphone to contact emergency services after both men’s horses spooked on a narrow trail. One of the men tumbled approximately 200 feet, suffering several broken bones and bruised lungs.The other man

was also thrown from his horse, but did not leave the trail. Rescue crews from Keremeos, Osoyoos and Penticton attended the scene, as did Keremeos RCMP and BC Ambulance personnel. Both men were hospitalized. Last week the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations advised travellers that the Ashnola Forest

Service Road will be temporarily closed at 39 kilometres from Tuesday, Sept. 4 to Tuesday, Sept. 18, 2012, due to a bridge replacement. Ministry staff will be dismantling an old wooden bridge that is deteriorating and will replace it with a steel girder concrete deck bridge with a longer lifespan. Note the closure is near the

end of the forest service road and access to all recreation sites along Ashnola Forest Service Road will not be affected. The Ashnola Forest Service Road is located approximately 27 kilometres southwest of Keremeos, and is part of British Columbia’s 55,000-kilometre Forest Service road network that provides access to British Columbia’s backcountry.

Cultivating community change around seasonal farm work Contributed Penticton & Area Women’s Centre (PAWC) has embarked on a new project in hope to help farmers, communities and seasonal workers get together and work on resolving on-going problems linked to seasonal farm work. For those unfamiliar with PAWC work, they are a non-profit society committed to achieving social and cultural equality in the South Okanagan Similkameen through the alleviation of poverty, violence and discrimination. PAWC assists both women and men through client and community based programs making sure that everyone has access to resources they need. These include Poverty Law and Disability Advocacy, support and referral services as well as education and raising public awareness on many issues that affect us all.

One of those burning issues is a discord around seasonal farm work. The front page article in last week’s Oliver Chronicle (August 22) is one of many we read each year related to transient farm workers. It proves that communities are well aware of the problems and a need for the more structured and permanent solution which would work for all. From all the work and research previously done, we found a strong inter-dependency between communities, farmers and seasonal workers. The project, From Discord To Action is aimed to facilitating a one-day action planning forum where the communities, farmers and seasonal workers come together and create a feasible plan that will have a positive economic impact on farmers as well as bring a positive change to each community in the area. PAWC has added Lilly Zekanovic as the project co-ordinator and all the ques-

tions and suggestions related to seasonal farm work issues should be addressed to her. The first stage of the project is a survey among the farmers, seasonal workers and various community members throughout South Okanagan Similkameen in preparation of action planning forum which will be held in late November. The project From Discord To Action has been funded in part by Vancouver Foundation and BC Gaming and our many community partners.

It’s time for B.C. to kill the carbon tax Carbon tax is not revenue neutral for the average taxpayer By Jordan Bateman Canadian Taxpayers Federation Earlier this month the Canadian Taxpayers Federation (CTF) submitted its recommendation to kill the B.C. carbon tax with the provincial government panel reviewing the tax. The CTF has recommended “that the Government of British Columbia immediately repeal the B.C. carbon tax, including all revenue neutrality tools, if necessary to balance the provincial budget.” “It’s time for the carbon tax to go,” said Jordan Bateman, the CTF’s B.C. director. “It hasn’t accomplished its environmental goals and is hurting B.C.’s competitiveness both in North America and internationally. Taxpayers—both individual and business—need relief.” Earlier this summer, the CTF asked its B.C. supporters to send in their thoughts on the carbon tax. Hundreds responded with notes sharing their feelings and personal stories of the hardships the carbon tax has imposed on them.

Those submissions became the foundation for the CTF’s 24-page report to the panel. While the carbon tax is technically revenue neutral for government, many of the offsetting tax cuts do not help the average taxpayer. Among other tax offsets, the B.C. Budget lists the small business venture capital tax credit, a corporate income tax cut, an industrial property tax credit, interactive digital media tax credit, scientific research tax break and a film industry tax break as offsetting the carbon tax. The personal income tax cut only offsets $228 million of the carbon tax’s $1.2 billion overall take. The CTF would like that particular tax cut to remain in place, even if the carbon tax is scrapped. “It’s ridiculous for an average taxpayer to be told it’s revenue neutral when they are forced to pay the ever-increasing carbon tax but have no ability to access the corresponding tax breaks like venture capital credits, industrial property credits, research and experimental development grants or digital media credits,” said Bateman. “Many taxpayers feel left behind by having to pay both a carbon tax and increased prices for any good or service moved by vehicle in B.C.”

Shipping our wine across the country is still not easy By Laura Jones, Canadian Federation of Independent Businesss My husband and I are visiting some friends in Ontario this weekend. Thanks to the recent passing of Bill C-311, we can now legally give them some B.C. wine as a gift. Or can we? Bill C-311 amended the 84-year old federal law, dating to Prohibition, that made it illegal to carry or ship wine directly across provincial borders (for example from a B.C. winery to Ontario). The law was a poster child for ridiculous red tape and long overdue for amendment. For small wineries, Bill C-311 seemed like a godsend: explaining to customers why you can’t send them wine because they happen to live out of province wasn’t anybody’s idea of a good time. Unfortunately, it takes more than just amending outdated federal legislation to untangle the mess of rules governing wine travelling across provincial borders. The provinces are involved in regulating, too. The good news is that all provinces, except Quebec, allow individuals to physically take various quantities with them for personal use. It’s now legal, for example, for a Calgarian to buy a bottle of wine from a B.C. winery and take it home. The bad news is that most provinces don’t seem eager to allow their residents to have wine sent to them from other provinces. According to the Canadian Association of Liquor Jurisdictions, which represents 13 liquor boards and commissions, right now there are only two

exceptions. Manitoba allows its resident to ship unlimited amounts of wine from other provinces as long as it is for personal use. The province had no regulations saying otherwise on its books so importing was allowed by default after C-311 passed. B.C. showed leadership among provinces by changing its regulations quickly after C-311 was passed to make importing directly for personal use legal. If I visit an Ontario winery, I can now legally have as much as I like shipped to me (as long as it is for personal consumption and 100-per-cent Canadian wine only). I can order it online, too. If you are a wine aficionado, count yourself lucky to live here. I propose a toast to these two provinces for quickly and clearly supporting the federal redtape slashing. Dan Albas, the MP who introduced bill C-311, and Shirley-Ann George, who continue to push for more freedom for wineries and consumers through her website FreeMyGrapes.ca, also deserve feting. I consider them worthy of a CFIB Golden Scissors Award for cutting red tape. As for the other provinces that have yet to join the party, what’s the hold-up? Isn’t supporting local wineries and giving consumers more choice worthy of your immediate support? My friends in Ontario will be getting a bottle of B.C. wine this weekend. It’s one that I will have to carry on the plane. I still can’t ship wine directly to them from a B.C. winery. If they lived in another country it would be no problem. Despite C-311, inter-provincial trade barriers for wine-shipping are still alive and kicking.

THE REVIEW Publisher: Mark Walker 605 7th Ave, Keremeos Box 130, Keremeos, B.C. V0X 1N0

Editorial New triathlon will hopefully provide more local benefits The recent announcement by the City of Penticton regarding the end of its association with Ironman Canada will hopefully be good news for the region in general. Next year’s triathlon, which will be part of the Challenge series of long distance triathlons, is expected to take place as part of a week long event that promises to be more inclusive and family oriented. It appeared to us that the Ironman event, in recent years, was taking the area down a path that, less and less benefitted South Okanagan. It certainly seems as though the community was seeing fewer benefits each year at the same time that the race appeared to be making increasing demands on local infrastructure - that we taxpayers were expected to pay for. It sounds like this new arrangement will allow for more of the race proceeds to remain in the local economy, in the pockets of those who volunteer as well as those who live with the local inconvenience of race day. We hope that an arrangement will be made that will allow for other communities on the Ironman race circuit to share some of these benefits - after all, as much as many businesses benefit from the race, there are some who actually lose money on race day, due to road restrictions and traffic issues. Finally, the Penticton triathlon has always been a favourite among athletes who regularly pursue the sport. We hope something as simple as a name change doesn’t alter that view, and that athletes from all over the world continue to come and enjoy this volunteer driven race in the years to come.

Studying projects to death By Tom Fletcher Black Press NDP leader Adrian Dix has announced that one of his first acts as premier would be to withdraw B.C. from the joint review of the Enbridge pipeline proposal from Alberta to Kitimat. The two-year federalled review will be mostly done by next May, but Dix proposes to start a new provincial assessment to examine at the B.C. portion. He doesn’t know how much it would cost, and under questioning he all but admitted the intention is to study the pipeline to death. Fresh from a summer tour of the pipeline route to reaffirm solidarity with its opponents, Dix is hardly in a position to consider anything but maximum resistance. As Premier Christy Clark did in her showdown with Alberta over benefits, Dix hinted that provincial permits for river and wildlife crossings would be made as expensive as possible, if not refused. The same fate awaits the Kinder Morgan plan to twin

the existing Trans-Mountain oil pipeline to Burnaby. Dix left the impression that he would undo the years of work that have gone into bringing some rational sense to environmental approvals that can be, and have been, dragged out for years. The B.C. hearings would provide another platform for opponents, and more complaints to justify refusal at the provincial level, to go along with court cases and direct-action protests. Speaking of which, the frontal assault by agitators at the federal Enbridge hearings has mostly petered out. After 4,000-odd people were signed up to speak, most didn’t bother, and some hearings were cancelled. Apparently slacktivists such as “Jonathan L. Seagull” and “Cave Man” didn’t make it out of their Vancouver basement suites to tell the panel oil is bad. Professional environmentalists are now wringing their hands over Ottawa’s decision to leave smaller-scale reviews to the province. This means, for example, that

there won’t be a duplicate federal review of the urgently needed refit of the John Hart Dam on the Campbell River. One reader suggested that environmental pioneer Roderick Haig-Brown is still spinning in his grave over the damming of this legendary salmon river. Perhaps, but that was in 1947. Does it make sense today to lard pointless bureaucracy onto a reconstruction that replaces wooden pipes and provides earthquake protection, without expanding river impact? NDP environment critic Rob Fleming hammered away at the B.C. Liberals about this in the spring, reminding them that Auditor General John Doyle had exposed a lack of resources in the B.C. Environmental Assessment Office, even before Ottawa’s changes. Fleming makes it sound like a huge new burden has been dumped on B.C. False. Provincial assessment already must be done with the participation of Fisheries and Oceans Canada, Transport

Canada, the provincial ministries of natural resources and energy and mines, and of course aboriginal communities. This is why it’s so long and expensive. And don’t be fooled into believing that a federal review would go out and count the tadpoles and caribou again. It’s only the desk jobs that have proliferated. There weren’t just two levels of duplicate review, but three. Earlier in their mandate, the B.C. Liberals exempted major projects such as mines and energy generation from local government control, citing the “provincial interest” similar to the federal authority over projects that cross provincial borders. I agree with the NDP that B.C. environmental assessment needs more resources, in particular to do the followup on approved projects, as called for by the auditor general. Forest management needs more money too. All the more reason not to waste resources on political gestures.

Refinery proposal is a good idea To the Editor: Media mogul David Black has my full support for his proposal to build a $13-billion oil refinery near Kitimat to process heavy oil from the Enbridge pipeline. I’ve had the same idea myself. Why should we let the Asian countries buy our Canadian crude oil and refine it for their markets when we could add value by refining it here in B.C. and shipping them the finished product? This is a strategy that would create local jobs for our own citizens and address the environmental concerns around oil tankers travelling in B.C.’s coastal waters. I know for a fact that Alberta wants to do this because I worked on a project in East Edmonton (a stone’s throw from the refineries in Fort Saskatchewan) that would have seen it

become a reality. And as long as Enbridge meets the conditions and standards set out by the premier, moving heavy oil from Alberta through a pipeline would be a heck of a lot better than shipping it by rail or truck. That’s why B.C. should be working with Alberta on exactly the kind of joint interprovincial venture David Black is proposing, a venture that would bring value-added tertiary oil refining to B.C. along with the heavy oil pipeline. Shipping gasoline, jet fuel and other refined oil products by tanker is just as practical as shipping crude oil and lot safer from an environmental standpoint. So let’s not waste this opportunity and the revenue and jobs it could bring to our province. There’s a lot we could do here in B.C. with a piece of the oil industry pie. Roop Virk, Chilliwack

Internet voting will improve voter turnout To the Editor: I am pleased that the B.C. government has asked the province’s election officials to examine the potential for Internet voting in provincial and municipal elections. I would also like to acknowledge Premier Christy Clark for leading this initiative. Modernizing B.C.’s electoral process was one of the key promises she made when she became

Premier and long overdue. Low voter turnout has become an increasingly apparent issue in provincial and municipal elections. Internet voting has the potential to increase the number of voters who take part in the process and that can only be good for democracy. June Chen, Coquitlam

Refinery proposal a ruse to build pipeline? To the Editor: I think David Black’s proposal to build a refinery in Kitimat is just another carrot stick with the hope of softening public outcry regarding the proposed oil pipeline from Alberta through what’s left of our beautiful pristine wilderness. I must ask Black if the refinery would be built if at all - before - after or at the same time as construction of the proposed - sneaky probably- leaky Enbridge - Harper pipeline. One leak could equal disaster sending our forests, rivers and oceans on a quicker slippery oil soaked one way ticket on a gauntlet to hell. A human being can’t eat money or drink oil

but can certainly fight over it. I guess the future is not ours to see but we can only wait for the inevitable disaster. Enbridge uses the same crystal ball reporting nothing but ongoing oil-pipe line failures that couldn’t transport water yet alone yucky oil. Remember this you deceitful lowly oil kings and porko’s - your children and theirs will hate you as they wait for the final bang when all is gone - the cupboards of the entire world are bare with nothing to share and no - one to care. Mother Earth will leave the planet for a new world free of the cruelty and stupidity of mankind just moments before the idiot becomes extinct. Tom Isherwood, Olalla

What’s the big deal about premier’s all women meetings? To the Editor: Why is Christy Clark being singled out and criticized for holding “women-only” outreach events when politicians of all stripes have been doing the same for years. I recall that Gordon Campbell regularly met with groups of women when he was premier and yet he was never attacked for it. Likewise, the NDP have a gender and sexual orientation policy which dictates who

can run for them as a candidate. And don’t tell me Adrian Dix has never attended a “women’s meeting”? So, why are the media carrying out this insanely hypocritical attack on Christy Clark? A prime example: CKNW has a women-only political panel going after her! Is it because the media have become so rigidly biased against Christy Clark that anything goes now? Mike Taylor, Port Moody B.C.

Mother Teresa’s birthday reminds us of a kind woman This past Sunday (August 26) was Mother Teresa’s birthday. We revere her memory as a great person, but as she continually said, “We are not called to do great things; we are called to do ordinary things with great love.” We marvel at her impact on the world, when the only power she had was her kindness. But we shouldn’t marvel. Hidden in simple kindness is the power to change a situation, change a life, change our home, change our community. All the great spiritual teachers tell us this: that loving kindness is not a little thing, or even an ordinary thing (though we can make it so easily enough). It is a superpower. And here’s the latest news: recent research has found that witnessing

an act of kindness, even to a stranger, increases a person’s compassion toward others. Kindness is self-replicating. I wish it just flowed naturally from me all the time. But in specific situations, I have to remind myself: “Ron, be kind.” And then, sometimes, I am. Maybe you need to do the same. Here in our Valley we’re into our last month of PVPP’s “Practice indiscriminate Kindness” Campaign. How are we doing? How are you doing? And who’s the kindest person you know? Tell them so. Thank them. They serve us well. Ron Shonk, Proactive Violence Prevention Project coordinator, Keremeos

community When your future collides with their future – retirement years meet the college years There was a time when marrying young and having children right away was the norm. But as North American life became increasingly frantic and expensive, more and more couples chose to delay marriage and children. If you’re among these ‘mature’ parents you could be opening the door to your retirement years while your offspring are still in the nest and aiming at a university or college education. Chances are you’ve already made progress accumulating savings and setting some aside for retirement. But you still need a plan to pay for that increasingly costly post-secondary education – and you should begin right away. Here a few tips to get you started.

Another successful reading and literacy program at the mill Contributed by Dave Cursons Similkameen Family Literacy wrapped up its sixth annual August Day Camp with three very different renderings of the classic story of Little Red Riding Hood. The youngsters, aged eight to 12 years, prepared their performances with writing and acting exercises under the direction of Bob McAtamney of the Cawston Players. Similkameen Family Literacy co-ordinator, Dave Cursons has presented the day camp for young actors since 2007. This year, the program was pleased to welcome Yasmine JohnThorpe of Penticton Writers and Publishers representing the Vancouver Sun “Raise A Reader” pro-

gram. Raise a Reader books were awarded to camp participants along with a copy of the current anthology of teen and pre-teen Okanagan writers, called “Gems”. On Wednesday Mrs. JohnThorpe gave campers a clinic on short story writing After final performances on Friday morning, Day Camp certificates were awarded along with a special Diamond Jubilee pin celebrating Queen Elizabeth II’s 60th year on the throne. Provincial Gaming proceeds fund the day camp and other Similkameen Family Literacy programs which include a volunteer One-to-One Reading program, conducted at Cawston Primary School.

Get registered to save A Registered Education Savings Plan (RESP) is a terrific way to save for an education and to save on taxes, too. Though contributions are made with after-tax dollars, you do not pay tax on growth in an RESP until money is withdrawn. If the growth is paid to your child while attending an eligible post-secondary education program, you won’t pay taxes on the growth; your child will, and will likely be in a low tax bracket. The government will also kick in some money. Through the Canada Education Savings Grant (CES Grant) program, the first $2,500 you contribute each year to your child’s RESP will receive a federal grant of at least 20% of your contribution . With the recent removal of the annual maximum contribution limit and an increase in the lifetime maximum contribution amount to $50,000, it is now easier to accelerate contributions to an RESP.

MANAGING Your Money to be available in 2009, could be a good choice. Other options are trust accounts and life insurance. Get retirement-ready Develop a realistic retirement plan that includes the fact that your children may still be completing their education at that time. Your plan could include putting off extensive travel or exploring alternative work arrangements, like phased retirement, so you can spend more time with your children. Talk to your professional advisor to learn more about education savings options and what you can do to help put your child through university while still enjoying your retirement.

Get a CLB to save The Canadian Learning Bond can also help accelerate your education savings plan. It is available to children born in 2004 or later whose parents or primary caregivers are receiving the National Child Benefit Supplement. Alberta residents may also qualify for the Alberta Centennial Education Savings Grant (ACES) which can add up to $800 to your child’s RESP. Quebec residents can qualify for the Quebec Education Savings Incentive, which can provide an additional $250 each year to your child’s RESP. Get flexible to save With the education costs accelerating, it’s prudent to look beyond RESPs. The new Tax Free Savings Account,

Busy summer at the library

It has been a busy summer so far at the Keremeos Library. Summer Reading Club has once again been a big hit, with many interesting programs and guest speakers. The SPCA came and talked to the children about animals; the Osoyoos Desert Centre staff gave an interesting presentation on the local animals, and the children had the chance to hold a rattlesnake skin and pet a stuffed badger. A former “Barkerville school teacher” came dressed in Victorian era costume and captivated her audience with her “school Mom” props (Dunce cap, slates and pointer). The children even tried out the stilts. To conclude our special programs, Leif David, (above), a local magician presented an upbeat magical show “Strange But True” to go along with our theme for the summer. Leif captivated the audience, with many participating, children and adults alike. The last program will be held on Friday August 31 at 10 a.m, at which time the participants will receive medals and certificates for completing their reading logs.

Annual Harvest Dance at Cawston Hall September 2 Community benefit will feature local group Infusion Contributed This year’s Harvest Dance, an annual benefit for the Cawston Community Hall, will be a chance for the community to usher in the autumn and to get a look at some of the latest hall improvements, especially the fully renovated washroom facilities. Infusion, made up of Cawston’s own talented musicians will come together to carry the night with their special mix of old fashioned rock and roll, soft rock, original pieces and some country and western thrown in for good measure. There will be raffles, draws, door prizes with an assortment of

gifts from local individuals and businesses. In harvest dance tradition, there will be the usual light refreshments and, as well, a pot luck feature. Bring a favorite dish to share. Proceeds from the dance are directed to hall improvements. The Community Foundation of the South Okanagan has lent a very big hand to the Cawston Community Hall Society with grant funding that pairs with local volunteer labor and fund-raisers like this annual harvest dance. It all happens on Sunday evening, September 2. Doors open at 7 p.m. Music starts at 8 p.m. Advance tickets are available at Similkameen Agencies in Keremeos or at Cawston Marketplace. Admission is $10. It’s a family affair and children are admitted free.

Motorists passing by this oily looking puddle located a few metres from Keremeos Creek on Highway 3A last week were alarmed at what appeared to be an oil spill very close to the creek. Several calls were received by the Ministry of Environment, who investigated and discovered that the puddle is actually fruit juice.

Linda Pillon and Debbie Vernon of Keremeos are shown in the photo above pedalling into a Toronto park after their 4,400 kilometre bike ride in support of the fight to find a cure for Mitochondria Disease. The bike tour was named after Linda’s late son Scott, (Debbie’s brother) who died of the disease in the 1980s.

By Steve Arstad news@keremeosreview.com

eremeos residents Linda Pillon and Debbie Vernon completed “Scott’s Ride” for Mitochondria disease on August 5. The 4,400 kilometre bicycle odyssey from Keremeos to Toronto began on July 4 with Linda’s husband Ray providing vehicle support for the two through the Kicking Horse Pass. “My hands still haven’t returned to normal yet,” said Linda, alluding to the numerous days spent with hands clenched around the handlebars. “A sore butt is the biggest thing,” she laughed about the pair’s physical tribulations during the trip, adding that Debbie ended up with calouses on her palms after the month of riding. Pillon and Vernon put in 12 to 15 hour days in the saddle, making their way through the mountains of B.C. in four days. “I thought the mountains were going to be so bad,” Pillon said, “but I really enjoyed it.” Having high gears on the bikes helped, she added, “You just put the bike in granny gear and up you go,” she said. A couple of tunnels in Rogers Pass caused some anxious moments due to poor visibility, but other than that the mountain terrain proved to be easily surmountable. Ironically, it was the trek across Saskatchewan that caused the Scott’s Ride duo the most difficulty. “We encountered searing heat, headwinds and heavy rain,” Pillon said of the prairie province. It was neighbouring Manitoba, however, where the pair had their best daily run; 240 kilometres in a single day, from Brandon to Winnipeg. Even though a portion of the pair’s travelling supplies included camping gear, logistics soon

dictated that motel rooms were the best way to keep moving on schedule. “We only camped for five nights or so,” Pillon said, describing one instance where, packing up after a night in a motel room, her bear repellent accidently discharged. “We suffered with that for days afterward,” she said, “as it had contacted the tent material, and every time we got the tent out our eyes would burn.” The two interupted their journey only briefly in Winnipeg, where Pillon stopped overnight to visit family. It was a fortuitous break; at roughly midpoint in the ride, spirits were flagging somewhat. “It was the high point of the trip, seeing my sister and her family,” Pillon relates, “the visit bolstered our spirits and gave us new drive to finish the ride.” Around the same time, Pillon experienced swelling in her leg after bruising it with the bicycle pedal. There was a short delay to get checked out at a Winnipeg hosptial. “I wasn’t sure whether it was a clot or not,” Pillon explained, adding that once back on the bike, other than for a little discomfort, the leg settled down. Northern Ontario brought with it the steep, undulating topography of the northern Lake Superior shoreline, as well as more harrowing road conditions. “The shoulders of the road were very narrow in places. Truckers would tend to give us room, but campers and tourist vehicles would pass us with no room,” Pillon recalled. Traffic issues were also a problem in Vernon, where construction made bicycle passage difficult. Pillon and Vernon discovered a great deal of goodwill and generosity during their journey, from complimentary bike service in Revelstoke and Sarnia, free camping and food in Calgary, to police escorts and state police donations in Michigan.

Distracted driving now the third leading cause of traffic accidents ICBC press release

ICBC and police launch campaign as distracted driving now third leading cause of car crash fatalities in B.C.

Survey results show B.C. drivers know the risks of distracted driving but aren’t hanging up A 2012 Ipsos Reid survey, conducted on behalf of ICBC, reveals that 44 per cent of respondents

believe that driving is a complex task and yet 40 per cent of those who own cell phones admit they’ve used their hand-held phone while driving. This tells us that while drivers recognize the dangers of

distracted driving, and the majority of respondents even consider texting while driving to be just as risky as drinking and driving, many still make excuses or misunderstand what is and isn’t allowed under the law.

The reality is, distracted driving is now the third leading cause of fatal car crashes in B.C., which is why this year’s campaign is focusing on educating drivers and dispelling some of the common misconceptions.

Motorcycle heaven at Crowsnest Winery By Steve Arstad news@keremeosreview.com

T

wenty-six Harley-Davidson motorcycle enthusiasts descended on Crowsnest Winery on August 14, each rider with the latest 2013 version of the legendary motorcycle manufacturers’ offerings. Crowsnest Winery was a lunch stop for the group, which was on a promotional tour for Harley, on their way to Whistler. “There were 19 journalists in the group,” said Olaf Heinecke, co-owner of the winery, “including a writer from the TV show Speed, as well as Road Runner magazine.” The tour was parading 19 of Harley’s 2013 new models, with the riders taking turns riding each one. “The bikes Photos contributed

The riders, representing several different nationalities, were detained for a period of time at the Nighthawk crossing, as border agents attempted to sort out a numbering issue with respect to the new bike models, none of which had appropriate identification numbers.

Welcome Back to School

2012

Back-to-school party ideas Back-to-school season is on the horizon, and many students and parents are either loving or loathing the idea of starting a new school year. For some, a party to commemorate the new school year and the end of summer is customary. Hosting a fun event for the soon-to-be students is one way to make the most of vacation time. * Go with a theme. Maybe the theme is rulers and text books, ABCs, or science, and it can run through the decorations used, the games played, the food served, and many other aspects of the event. Consider a science experiment inspired volcano cake that is oozing strawberry jam. * Include some educational games. Some students experience educational backsliding during summer vacation. That is why many schools have summer reading lists that educators feel promote lesson reinforcement for the coming school year. With this in mind, plan activities around concepts children learned in school. Think about math problem relay races, art projects, reading a story and reenacting it in a play form, or science experiments using solar energy. * Host a campout reading marathon. Encourage Pharmasave #250, Keremeos, BC 250-499-5543 guests to bring sleeping bags and favorite books to a campout under the stars. Most of the time can be spent reading while breaks can be devoted to exercising, making campout snacks or telling campfire stories. * Rent out a fun bus or truck. Since many students will be spending a good deal of time on a school bus once the new school year commences, tie into those jaunts to school by renting the services of a game bus or truck. Locally owned Some vendors will park their vehicles in front of the house for an hour or more, allowing children to climb & operated inside and enjoy themselves on play equipment or compete in video and Proud game competitions inside specialized gaming trucks. * Plan a group event at the beach. Spending time seaside can be of it! educational and enjoyable at the same time. Enlist the help of a few 250-499-2461 608 7th Avenue, chaperones and set up an area on the beach where kids can play and Keremeos, BC explore the wonders of nature around them. Pack picnic-type snacks or ask attendees to bring items themselves. * Plan a trip to the school. First-time students may be anxious about what to expect during their first days of school. Having friends who are slightly older accompany younger kids to school to give a tour and show them the ropes make the experience less frightening. Afterward, meet at a pizzeria to enjoy some slices and soda. KEREMEOS BUILDING SUPPLIES 620 - 8th Avenue, Keremeos 250-499-5322 * Host a classic pool party. Of course, some kids want to commemoMon - Fri, 8 am - 5 pm, Sat - 8:30 am - 5 pm rate the end of summer vacation by enjoying the pool one last time.

Classroom layout can affect learning When school begins anew, students are often excited about seeing their friends again and spending time with classmates It’s back to school time. they will be learning alongside all year. Though who a student sits next Remember to drive to in class is important to students for one reason, teachers have differsafely in school zones. ent motives behind classroom seating arrangements. Classroom layout plays a role in how students learn, concentrate and behave. Before the school year begins, teachers may establish a seating and learning environment unique from other classes. Throughout the school year, adjustments may be made in the best interest in children. According to Scholastic, oftentimes elementary school-aged children learn best when they’re allowed to move throughout the classroom. SOLUTIONS REALTY 250-499-7800 Learning stations that allow such movement have become more popular in classrooms. One station may cater to auditory learning, while GAIL DOWDING another may feature manipulatives that is ideal for students who thrive 1-888-499-6777 by learning with tangible items. Computer stations are also common, gaildowding@telus.net and this variety of stations breaks up the monotony of one type of Gail has been in business since 1989. Gail www.keremeosrealestate.ca is a proud supporter of cancer research. www.century21.ca learning by keeping students interested and engaged. Some teachers prefer to arrange desks in different fashions depending on the teachers’ teaching styles. The design of long rows of desks all facing the front of the classroom is not always practical for students or teachers. It can be difficult for teachers to see 499-2862 499-2225 students in the middle or the back of the room, while students may find it difficult to concentrate on learning if they’re staring at the backs of other classmates’ heads. Common desk layouts include grouping a few desks together to face one another for collaborative lessons. Some teachers prefer a “U” or circle layout to encourage discussions. Students prefer different environments in which to learn, and teachers may be wise to create different scenarios inside of the classroom. An isolated cubicle or desk shielded by bookcases can be a good retreat spot for a child who likes quiet for personal study. Other students like to study and work together, so a round group table may be the ideal place for them to gather. The classroom need not always be brightly lit for learning either. Teachers can think about using different types of lights to set up nooks in the classroom to facilitate learning. Hard seats, hard desks and the same location over and over can sometimes be uncomfortable. Teachers with novel educating styles may prefer to switch environments from time to time to keep students’ minds engaged. For example, they may take science lessons outside for children to learn first-hand about nature or animals. A trip to the school’s theater or all-purpose room may be better for a language arts assignment, such as acting out a play. Students from the same grade may swap classrooms with another class so they benefit from a different teaching style and environment. Sometimes teachers put all students together for a group lesson to exchange new viewpoints. Some designers and architects also have views on how classrooms should be designed. In 2011, the Laboratory for Visionary Architecture, with offices in Sydney, Stuttgart and Shanghai, designed a concept for the “classroom of the future.” It’s a prefabricated and portable classroom unit that integrates into the landscape while enhancing the learning environment. The materials are cost-effective and sustainable. Classroom environments may once have been about rigid rows of desks where all eyes were focused on the blackboard. But today teachers and innovators have realized the benefits of switching things up to tap students’ learning potential.

column

Stellar nurseries For some excellent pictures to illustrate this week’s subject, see the images of galaxies Messier 33 and Messier 51 on the website of the Canada France Hawaii Telescope (CFHT). These and the other images show the quality that is achievable from groundbased observatories, provided they are equipped with stateof-the-art optics and imaging. The website is: http://www. cfht.hawaii.edu/HawaiianStarlight/HawaiianStarlightArchive.html. Our Solar System, which comprises the Sun, all the planets - including ours - and a lot of other objects, is just one microscopic mote in a great spiral galaxy we call

the Milky Way, which is home for billions of stars and planets. The images we are getting with telescopes like the CFHT give us a hint of the treasure trove of cosmic jewellery we live in. Unfortunately, from our position well inside, it is very hard to get a big picture of what our galaxy is like and what is going on in it. With projects like the Canadian Galactic Plane Survey we can see a lot of what is going on in our neighbourhood, which in Star Trek is referred to as the Alpha Quadrant, and somewhat beyond, but that is more or less it. We have established that the Milky Way is a spiral galaxy like the billions we see in deep surveys such as the Hubble Deep Field. However, we can learn a lot by looking at similar galaxies in our galactic neighbourhood. Good examples are Messier 33 and Messier 51. M33 is close by, only about three million light years away. M51 is further away, about 23 million light

years. A light year is how far light travels in a year: 9,460,730,472,580.82 km. The most distant galaxies we can see are billions of light years away. Both M33 and M51 have the great advantage that we see them pretty well face on. In both cases we see a glowing nucleus, made of stars so closely spaced that we just see a glow, with a number of spiral arms radiating out from. These contain billions of stars. Extending along these arms are dark lanes of gas and dust. This is the raw material from which new stars and planets are made. Scattered along these lanes are little glowing pink knots and blobs. They show up beautifully in the CFHT images. These glowing blobs are places where the dust and gas has given birth to a new star, or sometimes more than one. The strong ultraviolet light from these new stars make the remains of their birth clouds glow. Luckily, even though these clouds are opaque to visible light, they are transparent to very short radio waves. The forming stars can be imaged

by special radio telescopes such as the James Clerk Maxwell Telescope (the JCMT), which sits along with the CFHT and other telescopes on top of Mauna Kea, an extinct volcano in Hawaii. The CFHT website also contains many images of things in our galaxy, such as star clusters, nebulae (clouds of glowing gas) and the remains of exploded stars. These images are lovely, and show once again what makes astronomy a unique science; what we observe is both scientifically fascinating and usually beautiful. They also show what we can achieve from the ground with modern optics and imaging techniques. Mars, Saturn and the star Spica lie close together low in the southwest after dark. Venus and Jupiter shine brightly in the eastern sky in the early hours. The Moon will be full on the 31st. Ken Tapping is an astronomer with the National Research Council’s Dominion Radio Astro-physical Observatory, Penticton.

health our pets - hot and hairy in the summer By Dr. Moira Drosdovech PART II Other hot weather pet pointers include: Good grooming can stave off summer skin problems, especially for dogs with heavy coats. Shaving the hair helps prevent overheating, but may change your dog’s coat forever, according to groomers. If you shave right down to the skin, you might predispose them to sunburn skin damage so best to stay at a one-inch length. Cats should be brushed often and they can also be given a lion cut”. They may not enjoy the process of getting a lion cut, but they sure seem to enjoy the benefits! Do not apply any sunscreen or insect repellent product to your pet that is not labeled specifically for use on animals. Ingestion of sunscreen products can result in drooling, diarrhea, excessive thirst and lethargy. The misuse of insect repellent that contains DEET can lead to neurological problems. Having a backyard barbecue? Always keep matches, lighter fluid, citronella candles and insect coils out of pets’ reach. It is truly amazing what dogs will consume. Please make sure that there are no open, unscreened windows or doors in your home through which animals can fall or jump. Stay alert for early signs of overheating in pets, which include excessive panting and drooling and mild weakness, along with an elevated body temperature. Take these actions if a pet is overheating: Immediately move to a shaded area; Stop or slow down activity; Offer small, frequent amounts of ice chips or cool water to the pet; Spray the pet with cool water or immerse in cool water (do not use ice cold water, which can worsen the condition!); Expose the animal to circulating air, for example, by using a fan; Apply a small amount of rubbing alcohol to the pads of the feet (do not let the animal lick this!); Contact your veterinarian. If an animal collapses or has difficulty breathing, contact a veterinarian immediately. Heat stroke is a medical emergency. The Okanagan is also host to several other hazards lurking in the outdoors during the summer. These include ticks, already discussed in a previous issue, and these parasites should be gone by July. Spear grass commonly causes problems in dogs. This nasty stuff gets in between their toes, in their ears, up their nose and in their armpits as well as occasionally being inhaled into a lung. It causes small draining fistulas in the toes and armpits, great discomfort in the ears and sneezing attacks if it j goes up the nose. Avoid fields and other walking areas where this plant is numerous and you will avoid a big bill for having to get it removed! We also have rattlesnakes here and these can be surprised by an unwary dog. I have yet to treat a dog with a rattlesnake bite, but I would rather not have to. It might be best to keep Rover on a leash during hikes in rattlesnake territory, which would be dry rocky landscapes. Rattlesnakes, by nature, are shy retiring creatures that would normally depart or seek cover when approached by people or pets. Have a great summer!

FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE? When a prescription is refilled, pharmacists are sometimes asked if the drug has to be taken “for the rest of my life”? As we age, it seems we need more medications but it is true that some of the doses of these medications can be reduced later in life or even discontinued altogether. However, no drug should be discontinued without your doctor’s OK and stopping a drug “cold turkey” is not recommended. WEIGHT = WHAT VOLUME Those nutritional charts on food packages shows sugar content in “grams”. “Grams” is a unit of weight. How many grams in one teaspoonful (a unit of volume)? The answer is 4.2 grams. So if your soft drink contains 35 grams of sugar, that’s over 8 teaspoonsful! This gives you a better picture of sugar content. A healthy daily amount of added sugar is 40 - 50 grams (about 10 - 12 tsp). HOW MANY STEPS PER DAY FOR KIDS While adults should take 10,000 steps per day for good health, the number for children is 12,000 steps daily. With so many alternative activities available to children today... many providing no exercise at all, it’s important to ensure that physical activity is a part of your child’s life every day.

The people who work in our pharmacy are our greatest asset. They would be happy to serve you soon.

Water Works with Jeremy Contributed by Jeremy Auger-Patry Now that summer is beginning its last official month, there are some seasonal changes that should affect your daily watering schedule. As the days are getting shorter, this means there is less direct sunlight on your lawn. The decreasing amount of sunlight increases the amount of time that unabsorbed water will remain on your grass. This may seem like a good thing at first since the loss of water due to evaporation is decreasing, but the longer water sits on your grass the more harm it causes. As the water sits on top, it begins to stagnate with the organic matter that’s on the top layer of soil. This may cause bacterial and fungal growth, the

most common form of this growth is mildew. This fungus grows on the grass and leaches out important nutrients from the blades, causing them to turn yellow, then dry up and crumble. It is simple to avoid this however, continuing on my last subject; don’t overwater your grass. Simply water your grass for one to two hours in the evening (After seven of course, we don’t want to advocate breaking the restrictions). This allows the water you use to have sufficient time to be absorbed into the soil and when morning comes there is no water left on top for the fungus to grow.

Hedley hugelbeet report Contributed by Angelique Wood The amazing thing about the piles of clippings and leaves which have sat waiting to be placed atop the Hugelbeet since May 2012 is that they have already begun to decay in place and become a rich humus layer. As we add this rich topping to the web and mesh of branches and twigs it sinks into the cracks and stabilizes. We are also finding all sorts of plants which have survived being dumped into the sorting pile and are growing... we’ll see how they do now that they are exposed. Found plants include irises, bergenia, convallaria, and sempervivums, so we are experimenting with letting them live, to see how well they can do under the hot conditions of the “beet”. The pile can be walked on, and the “springiness” which it first had while the branches were pliable is now much more solid- they are breaking down quickly in the summer heat. We have regularly added enough material to make the pile more than 8 feet tall, and yet by the next week’s build we find the

pile has sunk at least a foot. This is a good sign that the microbial activity is high and that things are breaking down. The Hedley Volunteer Fire Department has watered the Hugelbeet two times in the last 10 days, which is great during this dry summer heat. We hugelbuilders are very grateful that the Keremeos Volunteer Fire Department assisted in watering the “beet” on August 14 when they came to do a workshop to teach new members of the Hedley Volunteer Fire Department the technique of using a tanker, a water bladder and “drafting” a firetruck off the water in the bladder. More than 2,500 gallons of water deluged the hugelbeet that night, at the end of a two-hour work session. We are also excited to be making headway on a rattlesnake talk, hopefully happening soon near the Hugelbeet: the Okanagan Similkameen Conservation Alliance is willing to send someone out to talk to adults and children alike on how to be snake smart, and help protect these endangered species... we’ll keep you posted!

He was trained at the age of 16, by his uncle Henry, to be a master carpenter. He worked very hard all his life and instilled a strong work ethic in all his children and grandchildren. Ken was working in Trail, B.C. in 1952, when he met the love of his life Betty, and they were married shortly thereafter. Ken & Betty were married 59 years. Ken was a member of the Royal Canadian Legion. He enjoyed camping, hiking, reading & golÀng. Ken was always involved in his children’s and grandchildren’s sporting activities. His family was everything to him & he adored his grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces & nephews. Ken was predeceased by his parents, 2 sisters, 4 brothers and 2 grandchildren.
