Charges laid in international drug sting Kristi Patton Penticton Western News

Charges were laid in a substantial international drug sting that began with a seizure of ecstasy in Princeton. “We took a significant amount of drugs off the streets during this investigation,” said Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit of B.C. spokesperson Sgt. Ghalib Bhayani. “The cocaine alone represents a street value (per gram) of over $17 million.” The investigation spanned B.C., California, Mexico and Peru and was initiated in 2008 following information from the Drug Enforcement Administration that Canadian and American-based citizens were using a sophisticated system of encrypted smartphones to communicate and organize drug transactions on an international scale. The investigation revealed that a number of the accused travelled extensively throughout North and South America, conspiring to buy cocaine and importing it into Canada. Bhayani said their first seizure of drugs came on Aug. 21, 2008 when 23 kilograms (117,000 pills) of ecstasy were seized in Princeton. Princeton RCMP and South Okanagan Traffic Services conducted a routine check on Highway 3 and Copper Mountain Road around 1 p.m. when they stopped a 1981 Buick Regal with expired plates and a temporary operating permit. Four, one kg bags of ecstasy pills were located under the back seat. In addition, two hidden compartments were found in the car’s interior. Inside those, police found an additional 29 bags of pills. One adult male and female, from Vancouver, were charged with possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking. A total of 121 kg was seized at the Pacific Border crossing on Dec. 20, 2008.

Mat Duffus was able to convince people of all ages to join him for some laughs and singing on stage during Princeton’s 47th Agricultural Fair held this past weekend. Brynn Johnson (center) had a blast showing everyone she was so happy!

A few days later on Dec. 24, 2008, a further 97 kg of cocaine hidden inside a commercial transport truck carrying bananas was also seized at the same border crossing. In May of 2009, 10 kg of cocaine was seized in Burnaby. The investigation progressed for six more months and concluded with seven warrants executed in June 2009 at residences in Lake Country, Chilliwack, Burnaby, Surrey, Langley and Abbotsford. Those searches resulted in the seizure of four firearms, including a restricted pistol, and a number of prohibited firearms, including a revolver and two semiautomatic pistols. The six men allegedly involved in the international drug ring include Khamla Wong, 42, formerly of Abbotsford and Jeremy Albert Stark, 38, of Langley who are charged with one count each of

conspiracy to traffic 121 kg of cocaine, one count each of conspiracy to import 97 kg of cocaine and one count each of a possession of a firearm. Wong currently remains at large. Also charged are Christopher Lloyd Mehan, 40, of Burnaby for one count of conspiracy to import 97 kg of cocaine; Matthew James Higgins, 28, of Powell River with one count of conspiracy to traffic in ecstasy; Hernan Osvaldo Veloso, 50, of Vancouver with one count of conspiracy to traffic in ecstasy and one count of possession for the purpose of trafficking and Robert Charles Arthur, 32, of Surrey with one count of possession for the purpose of trafficking 10 kg of cocaine. Arthur is currently out on bail. Stark, Mehan, Higgins and Veloso will appear in court on Sept. 12 in Surrey.

Fire department to restore Princetonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s original pumper ďŹ re truck Lisa Carleton lisa@similkameenspotlight.com

A Bickle Seagrave was purchased in 1954 and was the first pumper fire truck (built to pump water) in Princeton. The Seagrave remained in service for 40 years. In 2004 Princeton Wood Preservers (PWP) purchased the truck for use at the plant. Earlier this year, the truck was purchased by a resident of Princeton for private use and then just recently, purchased back by the Princeton Volunteer Fire Brigade. The Seagrave has 15,115 original miles, the tank still holds water and the pump still works. The fire department plans on doing a complete restoration and are hoping to raise enough money to do so. They would like to have the Seagrave present at special events, participate in parades and be front and center during Fire Prevention Week. Watch for future fundraiser announcements and keep an eye out for the progress of the restoration. The Princeton Volunteer Fire Brigade is currently recruiting members. Applicants ages 19 - 65 are welcomed to drop by the Fire Hall on Wednesday evenings. Junior members - aged 16 - 18 and attending school are welcome as well. Captain John and Susan Laursen show off the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;54 Seagrave at the Princeton and District Agricultural Fall Fair this past weekend.

Anita Drees, Ways and Means chair for the Senior Citizen’s Branch #30 set out to do something to help the groups who have been working diligently to have 24/7 ER services restored to Princeton General Hospital. “I am very concerned about the senior’s in our community,” said Drees, “I felt the need to help S.O.S.” (Save Our Similkameen) Knowing the forum office was run on donations and volunteers, Drees went to the Community Hospital Forum office to speak to Solana Allison, president of S.O.S. Drees asked Allison if she would mind if the Senior Citizen’s Branch #30 did a fundraiser to help them out. “She cried,” said Drees. “Solana has put her own life on hold for four months, dedicating herself to this cause,” she added.

SpotlightOPINION End of Ironman puts Penticton on new course Guest Editorial Penticton Western News

One of the largest sporting events ever to be hosted in the Okanagan has drawn to a close. And Penticton is now embracing the Challenge as it looks to the future. As the final competitors made their way across the finish line of the Subaru Ironman Canada Triathlon in Penticton Sunday night, work was already well underway on the preparations for the Challenge Penticton event that will replace it. It’s hard to imagine that next year’s Challenge triathlon will attract the more than 2,500 athletes who took part in Penticton’s 30th and final Ironman. But with the Challenge Family’s signature event in Roth, Germany attracting more than 5,000 competitors, there is some reason for optimism for the future of the Penticton triathlon. While the loss of the iconic Ironman name will diminish the appeal for many of those who come to Penticton for the last Sunday in August, the increasingly corporate feel the event has taken on in recent years has eroded some of the lustre among local residents. When Graham Fraser sold his Ironman events to the World Triathlon Corporation, the company announced the city would have to pay a “promotion fee,” which reached $60,000 this year. This is on top of the more than $100,000 in in-kind services the city provides for Ironman. The increasing financial emphasis left a bad taste for many residents, who longed for the more community-oriented focus they enjoyed in years gone by. The new Challenge Penticton event promises to restore some of that informal feel. Replacing the economic clout Ironman brought to Penticton is a formidable task. But the city has taken the first step on that long and challenging road ahead.

Historical headstone of Hattie McBride repaired A special thank you Dear Editor, Special thanks to Chris Goodfellow and Paul Kehtner for their hard work repairing the headstone of Hattie McBride at the Granite Creek Cemetery. Hattie was murdered in 1920, and a very long time ago the top of her headstone had fallen over. She had no family to look after her grave so the headstone remained in two pieces. Chris and Paul used great skill and strength to level and reassemble Hattie’s beautiful headstone.

Reader disagrees with Mr. Walker’s opinion on health care system Dear Editor, Who is this Mark Walker spouting off about how beneficial a free market or two-tiered medical system similar to the U.S.A. would be for us? He insinuates that doctors in such an environment could, for services rendered, charge competitive fees to those with adequate funds and then treat the poorer citizens as a civic duty. It all sounds so logical if, in reality, they have the time, energy or inclination to look after the needs of the lower echelon after treating the elite of the population. Our universal health system was devised to eradicate a rich versus poor concept and attempt to guarantee timely health services to every class of citizen. To quote Mr. Walker: “Most of the responsibility, however, rests with the populace (Princeton?) that holds to a childish belief that politicians will give them something for nothing…” So now we’re childish and expect something for nothing in Mr. Walker’s view. How arrogant, misinformed, and mean spirited can that be? Canadians are highly taxed for the privilege of having health services and it is up to our politicians and the Interior Health Authority to spend OUR money wisely rather

www.similkameenspotlight.com A7

than mismanaging those precious funds. Talking about something for nothing, might I ask Mr. Walker whether the two-tier system would use, to their benefit, the hospital facilities and astronomical infrastructure that is all paid for by the Canadian taxpayer? Medicare is overburdened and will probably continue that way for many reasons. Mark Walker isn’t in favour of rationing care to those in need, but his alternate concept (two-tier or private) could put many lower income families or individuals on a starvation diet of neglect. If the bottom line for doctors to practice in Princeton or other small towns is a matter of higher compensation, then the Ministry of Health and IHA need to address this issue. Who in their right mind would be against top salaries for all medical staff? No, Mark Walker, we don’t wish something for nothing. If or when you need medical attention through our universal coverage we will all be contributing to your recovery.

And then there is the other kind - the type of smart meter that BC Hydro is imposing on British Columbians- which has a wireless communication transmitter (“The Microwave Device”) with two, pulsed, microwaveemitting circuits. On May 31, 2011, the World Health Organization recognized that radiofrequency electromagnetic fields are a Class 2B possible human cancer risk. The emissions generated by the Microwave Device fall under this classification of emissions and risk. Why are we being exposed to this risk and who is behind it? BC Hydro is, for all its purposes, an agent of the government and its1powers may be exercised only as an agent of the government. The imposition of a microwave transmitter in our homes by a government agent strikes an Orwellian tone; it violates the sanctity of the home and is inconsistent with the very nature of a free society. In a world full of toxic chemicals and radiation, the home is the last place of refuge, a zone of autonomous control and free choice. It is a private place where the state should not be imposing itself or its devices. This is about freedom of choice. Given the existing concerns regarding the risk to health and safety by these Microwave Devices, we decline to have them at our homes and we prohibit you from entering our properties for the purpose of installing such devices. You assert your contractual right to “access” to your equipment. We concede that you may continue to access our properties for the purpose of reading our present analogue meters. If an analogue meter needs replacement, you may replace it with another analogue meter. Our problem is not with what you are “accessing” - it is what you are seeking to leave behind. Your right of access does not go so far so as to entitle you to install a device that continuously generates toxic radiation.

Neither does the Clean Energy Act give you that entitlement. In fact, that legislation does not require, authorize, or even mention the2 Microwave Devices or their functional capabilities. You admit that the benign landline variety of smart meter would fulfill the communication and transmission functionality requirements as prescribed by the CEA, but you continue to impose the toxic Microwave Device on BC residents against our explicit objection. You abuse your power by continuing with installations despite the fact that the interpretation of the Clean Energy Act is a matter currently before the British Columbia Court of Appeal. We say NO to your entry onto our lands for the purpose of installing Microwave Devices. You have responded by threatening to cut off our power, but British Columbians will not accede to the strong arm of the state as exercised through the unilateral and coercive actions of BC Hydro. In our view, neither will the Courts.

SELF-CARE & WELLNESS ADVICE from your Shoppers Drug Mart pharmacist

LIVING WITH ARTHRITIS September is National Arthritis Month

Jennifer Gillcash

What is Arthritis? Many people start to feel pain and stiffness in their bodies over time. Sometimes their hands or knees or shoulders get sore and are hard to move and may become swollen. These people have arthritis (ar-THRYtis). Arthritis may be caused by the inflammation (in-flah-MAY-shun), of the tissue lining the joints. Some signs of inflammation include redness, heat pain, and swelling. These problems are telling you that something is wrong. Joints are places where two bones meet, such as your elbow or knee. Over time, in some types of arthritis but not in all, the joints involved can become severely damaged. There are different types of arthritis. In some diseases in which arthritis occurs, other organs, such as your eyes, your chest, or your skin, can also be affected. Some people may worry that arthritis means they won’t be able to work or take care of their children and their family. Others think that toy just have to accept things like arthritis. It’s true that arthritis can be painful. But there are things you can do to feel better.

What can I do? Go see a doctor. Many people use herbs or medicines that you can buy without a prescription for pain. You should tell your doctor if you do. Only a doctor can tell if you have arthritis or a related condition and what to do about it. It is important not to wait. You’ll need to tell your doctor how you feel and where you hurt. The doctor will examine you and may take x-rays (pictures) of your bones or joints. The x-rays don’t hurt and aren’t dangerous. You may also have to give a little blood for tests that will help the doctor decide what kind of arthritis you may have.

The Spotlight receives submissions of photos from residents on a regular basis and it is our pleasure to share them with our readers. This past week we received two photos, along with two phone calls (separate from photo submitters) that prompted this article. Princeton residents that have been around for a while are not at all unfamiliar with the fact that our area contains a variety of furry creatures that sometimes wander into the more residential parts of the area. Like the deer in the area, bears and raccoons will become accustomed to living in the same area as humans—as long as there is food to be had. However, unlike your household pet, deer, raccoon and bear are all still wild creatures and it is not safe, nor healthy for them or us to allow them to become attached to the residential sites. It is important for humans to remember that these creatures are just simply looking for food and when they find it and get used to the fact that it is ‘easy pickins’ they will most definately decide to stick around. That is not their problem—it is ours. Garbage and fruit are the most common attractant for bears. However, bird feeders, composts, beehives, pets and pet food attract them as well. You think it is a pain when you notice the birds ripping apart your garbage? Just wait until you run into a black bear jumping up and down on your garbage container or greets you at your

back door. Conflict between our neighbours from the wild and ourselves could be mostly avoided by taking the initiative to properly store garbage and recyclables. Properly clean and store barbecues when not in use, harvest fruit from trees as soon as it is ready, clean up any fruit that has fallen and keep pet food indoors. Fall is the time when bears get ready for denning season. Human garbage provides habituated and food-conditioned bears with the calories and nourishment they need with very little energy expenditure. By consuming large quantities of this digestible food bears are able to store large amounts of fat to survive their sleep time. Bears and humans will be much safer if the bears get ready for their denning season in their own natural habitat with their own natural food—not with the garbage humans provide them. Bear Aware is an educational program designed to prevent and reduce conflicts between people and bears in our communities. Check out the program information at www.bearaware. bc.ca/, or at www.rdos.bc.ca/index.php?id=624. More information can be found by visiting www.bearsmart. com. Although we are not unfamiliar with our furry neighbours, lets not encourage them to become fixtures in our community. Protect them as well as yourselves. If by chance you experience a problem bear, deer or any other creature from the wild, don’t try to handle it yourself. Call the Conservation Officer Service at 1-877-952-7277.

Busting the four myths about arthritis (NC)—As one of the most common chronic diseases in Canada, arthritis is also one of the most misunderstood. While the many myths surrounding it may flourish, The Arthritis Society sets the record straight here on four of the most common misconceptions: • Myth 1 - Arthritis is one disease. In fact, there are more than 100 types of arthritis. Some types are caused by joint inflammation, such as rheumatoid arthritis, gout, psoriatic arthritis and ankylosing spondylitis. The most prevalent type is osteoarthritis (OA), which affects more than three million Canadians. It progresses when cartilage, the material covering and protecting the ends of bones, begins to wear away and results in joint dysfunction. • Myth 2 – Arthritis is just aches and pains. In fact, arthritis ranks first among women and second among men for causes of disability in Canada. Severe joint pain and inflammation, as well as fatigue, are common symptoms of the disease. Arthritis can inhibit daily activities most take for granted, such as getting dressed, opening a door or holding a fork. • Myth 3 –Arthritis is a disease of the elderly.

In fact, it can strike anyone at any time, regardless of age, physical condition or ethnic background. Of the 4.6 million Canadians with arthritis, about 60 per cent are of working age. Approximately 61,500 Canadian babies, toddlers, children and young adults live with the intense pain and disability of this disease. Children’s arthritis can be more common than other well-known chronic childhood illnesses such as leukemia, diabetes and cystic fibrosis. • Myth 4 –Arthritis is not costly. In fact, reports estimate that it may cost the Canadian economy more than $33 billion annually in health-care expenses and lost work days. Over a quarter of men and women with arthritis, between the ages of 25 and 44 years, are not in the workforce. The problem is expected to get worse. In fact, within 30 years it is projected that a new diagnosis of OA will occur every minute, meaning that 30 per cent of the labour force will have difficulty working.

Update on Hedley hugelbeet Angelique Wood Regional District Area G Director

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!

MUSHROOM STROGANOFF NUMBER OF SERVINGS: 4 This creamy mixed mushroom sauce is ideal for a dinner party. Serve it with toasted buckwheat, brown rice or a mixture of wild rices. For best results, choose a variety of different mushrooms - wild mushrooms such as chanterelles, ceps and morels add a delicious flavour and texture to the stroganoff, as well as adding colour and producing a decorative appearance. Ingredients: • 25 g (1 oz / 2 tbsp) butter • 900g (2 lbs) mixed mushrooms, cut into bitesize pieces, including 2/3 button (white) mushrooms and 1/3 assorted wild or unusual mushrooms • 350 ml (12 oz / 1 1/2 cups) white wine sauce • 250 ml (8 oz / 1 cup) sour cream

SEPTEMBER 2012 CAPRICORN: Capricorn, when you love someone, it can be difficult to step aside and let this person make his or her own choices. But this is what you have to do for lessons to be learned. AQUARIUS: Your eyes are bigger than your stomach at work this week, Aquarius. Delegate some tasks so everything goes smoothly and your project is completed on time. PISCES: Learning from your weaknesses can help you to grow stronger, Pisces. Accept a challenge that is presented this week, even if it scares you. ARIES: You are on a roll, Aries, and now it is just a matter of maintaining the momentum for a few more days. Don’t let anyone slow you down this week. TAURUS: Taurus, there are many opportunities within your reach, but you are not sure which way to go. Seek advice from Sagittarius when you get a spare moment. GEMINI: Others can see you haven’t been yourself lately, Gemini. So relax and take a break from something that’s been bothering you, and you will return to being your old self. You won’t be disappointed. CANCER: Now is not the time for dawdling, Cancer. You have a full plate of things to tackle and it seems like the hours will be slipping away. Recharge and get focused. LEO: Leo, don’t let anyone discourage you when tackling a big project. As you have proven time and again, you simply need to establish a goal and your efforts will help you achieve it. VIRGO: Virgo, though you may not know where your path will lead this week, you are deeply aware that an adventure is in store. Take some time to prepare your mind and body. LIBRA: Libra, no one will know who you truly are unless you share a few secrets. You don’t have to give everything away, but allow others in by sharing some personal information. SCORPIO: Scorpio, though you don’t shy away from challenges, you do know when to pick your battles. When something inconsequential comes up this week, let it pass. SAGITTARIUS: Sagittarius, when a past conflict resurfaces this week, push it aside because that is ancient history. It is better to focus on the positive things that are in store for you. FOR ENTERTAINMENT ONLY

Directions: Melt the butter in a pan and quickly cook the mushrooms, in batches, over a high heat, until brown. Transfer the mushrooms to a bowl after cooking each batch. Add the sauce to the juices remaining in the pan and bring to the boil, stirring. Reduce the heat and replace the mushrooms with any juices from the bowl. Stir well and heat for a few seconds then remove from the heat. Stir the sour cream into the cooked mushroom mixture and season to taste with salt and lots of freshly ground black pepper. Heat through gently for a few seconds, if necessary, then transfer to warm plates and serve immediately. Recipe and photo: Take four – fabulous, easy recipes with only four ingredients – Joanna Farrow.
