Volunteers with the Okanagan Brigade Society make their final charge for the beach in Okanagan Falls on August 31. The group spent the week paddling down Okanagan and Skaha Lakes in a reenactment of a fur brigade voyage from days past.
Olalla Town Hall Meeting will discuss community issues Contributed Olalla “Town Hall” meeting taking place on Saturday, September 8 at 11a.m. Under the 20’ x 20’ tent 1518 Hwy 3A (Next door to Zack’s New and Used Store) The purpose of this meeting is to share information so that we can work toward solving problems that the com-
munity faces. • Information on the Boil Water Advisory for Olalla will be available.

If you represent a community group and would like an opportunity to speak at this gathering, please contact Angelique Wood at 250-292-8082 before noon on Friday, September 7 in order that you may be placed on the agenda.
During the last week of August, the Okanagan Brigade Society hosted voyageurs from across Western Canada, the North West United States, and possibly from as far away as Europe and Australia. Base camp for the first two days of the brigade was the historic O’Keefe Ranch. Entertainment included story telling by local historical story tellers. The first day’s activities included warm up paddles on Wood lake and Kalamalka Lake. The official launch of 15 to 20, 24 foot long voyageur canoes occurred at the head of Lake Okanagan) on
August 27. Over the next several days the brigade travelled the entire length of lakes Okanagan and Skaha, to Okanagan Falls. Each canoe waspaddled by six to 12 voyageurs. During the brigade, participants had the opportunity to learn about the rich history of the Okanagan First Nations people, the Okanagan Fur Brigade Trail, and the early ranching history of the valley. The voyageurs were impressed by the beauty of the Okanagan valley. After paddling, there was ample time to savour fresh produce from local fruit stands and sample award winning wines from local wineries. On hand to greet the paddlers upon their arrival at Christie Park was Area “D” Director Tom Siddon and Alternate Tom Styffe, as well as a scattering of Okanagan Falls residents.

Concern over future of business community fueled by imminent closure of Keremeos Variety Business owners fear loss of “critical business mass” as the village is about to lose yet another goods provider By Steve Arstad firstname.lastname@example.org Main street is starting to take on the appearance of a ghost town. The recent announcement of a quitting business sale at Keremeos Variety has resonated through the Keremeos downtown business section, already feeling the effects of recessionary times, a slow tourist summer, and cross border shopping practices. The prospect of yet another vacant building in the village’s main commercial block provides locals with yet another reason to take their business elsewhere - as the selection of merchandise available in town declines, consumers think outside the community more and more. Several business owners have, in recent weeks, begun talking about what changes they would like to see in order to make it easier for business to locate and operate in Keremeos. “We pay way too much taxes for our small tax base,we get very little if anything, but grief if we try and improve or bring new business in. Existing businesses are closing,and those of us wanting to sell cannot, because of way too many restrictive bylaws,which scare prospective buyers away,” commented Karl Schorb of the recently relocated Branding Iron Bar and Grill. He cited inflexible parking bylaws as the main reason for a prospective business to back out of a deal to acquire Keremeos Variety recently, and he wonders why the village can’t be more flexible in times like these, when parking isn’t an issue currently in the downtown core. Across the street, at Canadian Chopper Daryl Letkeman and Sandy Taylor were upset when they received a 25 per cent increase in their municipal tax bill this year. “We’re assessed on three lots,” Sandy said, “but there is only one business

Campfires now permitted within Kamloops Fire Centre Campfire ban rescinded for South Okanagan, Similkameen and RDOS By Steve Arstad email@example.com Effective at noon on Wednesday, Aug. 29, the current campfire ban in the Vernon and Penticton fire zones were rescinded due to a decreased risk of wildfires. Campfires will now be permitted throughout the Kamloops Fire Centre. The public is reminded that campfires cannot be larger than a half-metre high by a half-metre wide. Anyone who lights a campfire must have a hand tool (such as a shovel) or at least eight litres of water available nearby to fully extinguish it. Never leave a campfire unattended and make sure the ashes are completely cold to the touch before leaving the area. All other types of open burning remain prohibited within the Kamloops Fire Centre. This includes: · The burning of any material larger than a half-metre high by a half-metre wide. · The burning of stubble or grass. · Using fireworks or burning barrels of any size or description.
Anyone found in violation of an open fire prohibition may be issued a ticket for up to $345. Anyone who causes a wildfire through arson or recklessness may be fined up to $1 million, spend up to three years in prison and be held accountable for associated firefighting costs. The open fire prohibition covers all BC Parks, Crown and private lands, but does not apply within the boundaries of local governments that have forest fire prevention bylaws and are serviced by a fire department. Please check with local governments for any other restrictions before lighting a fire. The open fire prohibition will remain in place until the public is notified that it has been rescinded. For the latest information on current wildfire activity, burning restrictions, road closures and air quality advisories, go to: http://bcwildfire.ca The Regional District Okanagan Similkameen has also issued a notice of change in the fire danger rating within the region. The Regional District of Okanagan-Similkameen (RDOS) is rescinding the temporary fire ban issued on August 17, 2012. Effective noon on Wednesday, August 29, the temporary fire ban was rescinded for all areas of the RDOS.

With harvest underway, it’s salsa season in the Similkameen
By Simone Jennings Interior Health For me a fresh tomato off the vine is one of the best parts of summer. This time of year tomatoes are in abundance, and one of my favourite ways to use them is in salsa. Salsa made with fresh, locally grown ingredients is so much tastier than the store bought variety and it can be a nutritious snack. Tomatoes are low in sugar and calories and are a good source of vitamin C, potassium and fibre. They are also a great source of the antioxidant called lycopene,
which is thought to help prevent prostate cancer. Lycopene is more readily absorbed from cooked tomatoes so cooking and canning salsa is a good way to preserve tomatoes for the winter months. The one nutrition downfall to salsa is that it can be high in sodium, but if you’re making your own you can control the amount of salt you use. Fresh herbs and spicy peppers provide so much flavour that excess salt is unnecessary. Here is a fresh salsa recipe that makes a great appetizer or can be served on fish or chicken. 2 cups fresh roma tomatoes, diced 1 red pepper, roasted and diced
1 cup black beans (optional) 1/2 cup red onion, diced 1/3 cup cilantro, chopped 2 limes, juiced ½-1 jalapeño, seeds removed (use jalapenos as per your heat preference) 1 tsp cumin Salt to taste Roast the red pepper by placing under the broiler. Allow the skin to blacken and crack, using tongs to turn frequently. You want to blacken the skin but not burn the flesh. When the pepper is black on all sides remove from the oven and place in a paper bag or a bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Allow the pepper to sit for at least five minutes before peeling off the black-
ened skin and removing the core and seeds. Chop the cooled pepper and the rest of the ingredients and combine with cumin and salt to your taste. Don’t feel like making salsa but need a quick way to use up extra tomatoes? You can try roasting them with garlic, onions, and a little salt and pepper. Small tomatoes such as cherry or grape can be roasted whole. Larger tomatoes can be halved or quartered. Place washed tomatoes on a baking sheet covered with tin foil, drizzle with olive oil and roast at 450˚ F for twenty to forty minutes, until the tomato skins have popped and are browning. Serve as is with fresh herbs on pasta or put in the blender and puree into a sauce
Two Calgary men lose vehicle to an IRP during Ironman triathlon By Steve Arstad firstname.lastname@example.org Police report that Cawston man Michael Prentice, who was reported missing last week, has been located in Vernon. Keremeos RCMP called a halt to the search on Sep-
tember 4 after locating the 35 year old. An Ironman participant had his race ended prematurely on August 26 after being struck by a car near Cawston. The male suffered undisclosed injuries in the incident, and was transported to hospital in Penticton.
Two Calgary men on a journey to Vancouver had their trip cut short near Cawston after being given an Immediate Roadside Prohibition (IRP) for impaired driving. Their car was impounded for thirty days and both men were forced to return to Calgary on the bus.
BC food producers welcome $2-million “buy local” campaign Robert Boelens, Communications, Ministry of Agriculture The B.C. government is investing $2 million to help B.C. farmers and food processors promote local foods, Agriculture Minister Don McRae announced August 30. The funding will allow local businesses and organizations to launch or expand their own marketing campaigns, so different sectors of B.C.’s diverse food industry can use customized promotions specific to their market and needs. It is anticipated the funding will be particularly helpful to small-scale producers and businesses looking to promote their products. Businesses and organizations will be able to apply for matching funding from the provincial government for projects that promote local foods. Projects could include in-store
promotions, social media or web campaigns, smartphone apps, traditional advertising, on - product labelling and food-tourism maps. Producers, stores, farmers markets, restaurants, processors and industry associations all will be eligible to participate. Building the local market for B.C. foods is a key commitment of government’s Agrifoods Strategy, a component of the B.C. Jobs Plan, to lead the agrifoods sector growth into a $14-billion-a-year industry by 2017.

Editorial Downtown issues need council’s attention The downtown business community in Keremeos is reeling after the announcement by Sharon Finch of Keremeos Variety that the business was selling out and closing its doors. The north side of Keremeos’ single block of retail storefront between Sixth and Seventh Streets will have a 50 per cent occupancy rate after Keremeos Variety shuts its doors. Summer activity in the main business core is active, with many tourists stopping to access the bank, liquor store, or insurance office. A downtown core containing complementary businesses would give visitors an incentive to linger for more than five or ten minutes, and with the right commercial mix, result in them dropping a few more dollars in the community. Instead, we have a decreasingly viable downtown core, where residents are less and less inclined to think locally about a purchase before climbing into the car for a shopping trip to Penticton, or another larger centre. Perhaps this is an area where the present council could step up to the plate and distinguish themselves. Village council can’t do much about the downtown situation if there is not a resolve amongst local business to develop a strategy. But they can let local business know they are listening, be ready to modify legislation that currently isn’t working, and research for any tax breaks and grant opportunities that might be available to help move main street forward. Providing a product mix that people will shop in the village for is a job for local entrepreneurs to figure out and provide. But it appears to us that the downtown core needs some leadership to move forward. Village council - who have had a relatively unproductive first year - are in an ideal position to take the initiative and provide it.

Separating oil from manure By Tom Fletcher Black Press I was as surprised as anyone to hear about the plan by this newspaper’s owner, David Black, to begin regulatory work on an oil refinery for Kitimat. I’ll leave it to others to comment on the practicality of that plan, and whether it would make the proposed Northern Gateway pipeline project more acceptable to B.C.’s government and population. Black Press news coverage, columns, letters to the editor and other reader comments are not affected by this project, and there has been a range of views expressed already. Whatever the merits of the refinery idea, it has advanced the debate over pipelines and the place of oil in our society. And that’s a good thing, because as someone with a basic knowledge of chemistry and some experience in oil refining, I have noticed a lot of ignorance about the subject. Today I’d like to address some of the main miscon-
ceptions, which have been exploited by some opponents. The first one is oil pollution in general and how it gets into the environment. A global study by the Smithsonian Institution in 1995 calculated the amount of oil making its way into oceans this way: Big tanker spills accounted for 37 million gallons a year, about five per cent of the total marine oil pollution identified. By far the largest source was oil runoff from land into drains, from oil changes, municipal and industrial wastes and other sources: 363 million gallons. Bilge cleaning and other routine ship maintenance added 137 million gallons, four times the tanker spill average. Air pollution from vehicles and industry deposited hydrocarbon particles equal to another 97 million gallons; natural seeps added 62 million gallons; offshore drilling discharges accounted for 15 million gallons. So that’s the first thing to understand. It’s not tankers
and pipelines doing most of the polluting. It’s you and me. Then there is the propaganda about greenhouse gas emissions from the oil sands crude. Actor Robert Redford is one of the highest-profile pitchmen for the false notion that “tar sands” oil generates three times the greenhouse gases as conventional oil. The facts are clear. The most widely cited source is a graph prepared by Cambridge Energy Research Associates, which shows that 75 per cent of greenhouse gases from all types of crude occur when the gasoline, jet fuel and diesel are burned by the end user. Yes, there are variations in emissions on the remaining quarter. Emissions from mined oil sands crude are slightly higher than steam extraction, which is slightly higher than conventionally drilled and pumped crude. The most greenhouse gasintensive crude used in North America is California heavy crude, which is conventionally drilled.
Burning coal produces far more greenhouse gases than oil, as University of Victoria climate scientist Andrew Weaver has calculated. Two U.S. environmental groups, including the one fronted by Redford, have lately been promoting a study that suggests oil sands crude is more corrosive to pipelines. False, says the industry, showing analysis of pipes that have carried diluted bitumen for decades. The Trans-Mountain pipeline has been carrying crude from Alberta to Burnaby and Washington state for more than 60 years. It has periodically carried heavy crude for 40 years, and diluted bitumen for 25 years. Some of that crude is refined in Washington and the gasoline and diesel barged up to supply B.C. gas stations. And of course Vancouver Island, Haida Gwaii and all other B.C. islands depend on marine fuel shipments. And let’s not forget the most common heavy oil used in B.C. It’s called asphalt.

Dispatch transition not as simple as portrayed To the Editor: “Not So seamless” Apparently the ‘seamless transition’ announced in the paper in January of this year between Penticton dispatch and Kelowna dispatch has not been quite so seamless as some people would have the public believe. Given the letters to the editors and the articles in local newspapers it seems that the current system is inadequate. One of the articles also states that the “RDOS is moving towards a major upgrade.” Last summer when the proposals were put forth by the various interested parties wouldn’t it have been prudent of the RDOS members to have thoroughly researched what each of these proposals included? Did any of the regional directors (who are elected officials representing their communities) educate themselves about the dispatch systems available before voting? It was recognized at that time that the aging radio equipment would need to be replaced .It doesn’t appear to have been in the Kelowna bid or why would the RDOS need to spend $49,000 on a study to ‘ensure the current system is up to snuff?” As stated by the deputy chief in Kelowna
the current system has experienced numerous glitches including downed computer systems due to overload, confusing directions, incorrect press dispatch reports and erroneous GPS locations to name but a few. The public is being reassured that Kelowna dispatch is continuing to correct and improve these ‘glitches’ as they arise. Now the RDOS is talking about a major radio upgrade which could cost around a million dollars. I believe the public was duped into believing that by transferring dispatch to Kelowna they would be getting a superior system. It certainly is saving money on salaries in Penticton and perhaps that was the goal all along. I think the focus has been on the wrong issues and in the long term the RDOS and Penticton will suffer because of their short sighted decision. Compared the whole situation to shopping for clothes. I doubt there are many people who would not try on an outfit before they purchase to ensure they get a proper fit so why didn’t the RDOS examine the proposals a little closer to ensure that they(and us the public) were getting the ‘right fit?’ Regards, Mary-Anne MacDonald, Summerland
Questions abound over Olalla’s continuing water issues To the Editor: Is it just me, or does anyone else agree? I’m beginning to feel like we’re living in a third world country! Here in Olalla, we have now entered the fourth week of a water contamination alert. We still need to boil our municipal water to keep from getting sick. Doesn’t that seem like a long time? Wouldn’t you think that the problem could have been solved by now? I’ve placed phone calls to the RDOS staff, and have appreciated their very prompt response to my calls, and the information they’ve provided to me. That is commendable. But even so, four weeks?
In the 21st century, in Canada, how long should it take to identify the critters in the water, and their source, and an antidote to bump them off and clear the system? This is not rocket science, is it? Interior Health is also apparently involved. Shouldn’t they know how to get on top of this? And for goodness sake, how big can Olalla’s water system be? Or could it be that we 300 rural residents are just not considered important enough to get a timely response? RDOS posters thank us for our patience. But I have a hunch that if the problem was in Penticton, or even in Keremeos, their water would be running safe and clear by now. Dwayne Woloshyn, Olalla
Resident takes dim view of community after bad morning in the village To the Editor: It’s time for the weekly larceny update here in Keremeos. On Saturday morning (August 25) I was the first customer welcomed in the Bargain Centre. I put down my shopping bag in an inconspicuous place and once I’d found a towel to buy, placed it on top of the bag and resumed browsing the shop. Minutes later, when I went to fetch my bag and towel - the towel was gone and my bag had been noticeably rifled through. Quickly I searched for my money holder in the bag and was relieved to find it, so I made my purchase (minus the
stolen towel) and proceeded to Valu Plus to purchase a bag of groceries, Next, I was the first patron welcomed in the Okanagan Regional Library. I instantly reached for my spectacles case in my shopping bag- only to find that my reading specs were sitting at the bottom of the bag and the case, still containing my distance specs had been removed at the Bargain Centre. So, I rushed back to the scene of the crime to report this to staff, then proceeded homeward feeling naseuous, knowing I can’t afford the approximately $175 to replace my specs. At home, I reminded myself to put the groceries in
the fridge - when I suddenly realized I’d left the bag at the library downtown in my haste and shock to rush back to the crime scene. I walked the two kilometres back to the library, only to discover my bag of groceries had itself also diappeared from there, with staff not having had my grocery bag handed in. I have always seen Keremeos as a hellhole, only now, I recognize it as a larcenous hellhole! All that remains for me is to walk to the village’s edge, shake the Keremeos dust and dirt from my soles and sail into the sunset - hopefully never to return. Réal Saint Laurent, Keremeos
CTF petition is available for signatures in Keremeos To the Editor: Do you think Members of Parliament pensions are too rich? Did you know that for every dollar MPs contribute to their pensions, the taxpayers contribute $24? Shouldn’t it be 50/50? If you agree, then make your voice heard. Sign the Canadian Taxpayers Federation peti-
tion for MP Pension Reform at the K Café in Keremeos. With a sufficient taxpayer push, Prime Minister Stephen Harper will have to address pension reform for Members of Parliament this fall. Sincerely, Paul McCavour and Julie Turner, Osoyoos

The Wind-up party for the Summer Reading Club was held at the Keremeos library on Aug 31. All members who completed their reading records received a certificate and a medal, sponsored by the BC Library Association in conjunction with the Royal Bank of Canada. Summer Reading Club encourages students to keep up their reading skills over the summer. The club had over 80 members this year, and programs were very well attended. A Keremeos firefighter prepares to approach this motorhome, which was fully involved on the department’s arrival. The owner was only able to save a few possessions, including his two dogs. The fire started in the dashboard / motor compartment area and does not appear to be suspicious. There were 12 fire department members on scene. Total time the department was on scene was two hours, including cleanup.

Neil Armstrong immortalized by his footprints on the moon
n August 25, Neil Armstrong, the first man to set foot on the Moon, died. This sad event has triggered those of us lucky to live through the heady years of the “Space Race” to relive it all over again. The culmination of that period came on July 20, 1969. That is when two men, Edwin (Buzz) Aldrin and Neil Armstrong, landed on the Moon’s surface. The hatch of the lander was too small for both men to exit together, so Neil Armstrong came out first, and became
the first man to set foot on the surface of another world. People all over the world watched those rather poor video images of the space-suited astronaut climbing down the ladder and stepping onto the Moon. Under the circumstances it was not surprising that he slightly muffed his epic lines, when he said “One small step for (a) man. One giant leap for Mankind”. What became known as the “Space Race” was driven by politics, military one-up-manship and last but by no means least, our curiosity about the universe beyond the Earth and our desire to explore it. This “Outward Urge” is a key part of us. None of this could have happened without the path being prepared by the pio-
neers in rocket development. However, the space race really got moving on October 4, 1957, when the Soviet Union put Sputnik, the first artificial satellite, into orbit around the Earth. Thereafter, it seemed that every month saw another satellite being launched. They are intended to study the Earth and its space environment, to provide better worldwide communications and many other things. Canada got into the game with Alouette; a satellite designed to study the ionosphere. These days, satellites are essential parts of our lives. When President Kennedy announced in 1961 that the U.S.A. intended to put a man on the Moon, the technology to do so did not exist, and it was not clear what would be the best way to do it. The result was a long
period of experimentation, which included the Mercury and Gemini manned space programmes, and then Project Apollo. During trials on the ground, three astronauts, Virgil (Gus) Grissom, Ed White and Roger Chaffee, died in a fire. There were then trials in Earth orbit, and during Christmas, 1968, Apollo 8 carried Frank Borman, Jim Lovell and William Anders safely round the Moon. In addition to the dramatic pictures they sent back of the craters and mountains of the lunar surface rolling past, the astronauts sent back a Christmas message, which included verses from Genesis. This was a very exciting couple of decades to live through. No matter what memorial we set up for Neil Armstrong here on Earth, his
real memorial is on the Moon, where, on a world without weather and running water, his footprints may last for millions of years. They are a more permanent memorial than most of us can ever hope to have. That is, unless another astronaut decides to step in his footprints. However, we will need to go back to the Moon for that to happen, and no doubt Neil would be entirely in favour of that. We need to go back. Mars and Saturn are low in the Southwest after dark. Saturn is close to the star Spica. Jupiter rises after midnight at Venus around 3am. The Moon will reach last quarter on the 8th.

health this summer, pl ay it safe with arnic a! part I When cycling, inline skating or enjoying other sports on wheels make sure the whole family wears a helmet and protective gear. Always follow the rules of the road, make sure to wear bright and reflective clothing, and assume motorists don’t see you. And before doing any kind of exercise, to avoid damaging your muscles, always make sure to warm up and stretch: the next day, you’ll be glad you did! We all know that self-propelled sports carry their own share of risk and injuries. Kids get bumps and bruises, and older people who are still kids at heart can trip and get hurt too. For everyone’s bumps and bruises, sprains and strains, there’s Absolüt Arnica! Although arnica has been used as a medicinal plant since the 16th century, we now know that only homeopathic dilutions are safe for oral use. And while arnica has been both taken internally and used externally, its use as an external treatment continues to grow. Applied externally, its analgesic and healing properties have made it a very popular remedy for easing the pain and swelling of bruises. Nowadays, we also know that when delivered in the form of a gel, this amazing herb relieves pain caused by arthritis and sprains, as well as sore muscles. Arnica gel is recommended for:
• • • •
aches, pain and tenderness swelling and inflammation impaired joint movement or joint stiffness arthritis pain
Arnica (Arnica montana) is a small plant with bright yellow flowers that grows in grassy lowland and mountain meadows (hence the name montana) in many parts of Europe. However, due to over-harvesting, the plant has become increasingly difficult to find in the wild. To ensure a sustainable supply of this unique medicinal herb, A.Vogel cultivates its own organic arnica. A.Vogel’s Absolüt Arnica Gel is a herbal preparation rather than a homeopathic one. It is highly concentrated and contains 25% arnica tincture-10% to 15% more than other products on the market. This column and articles are provided by OK In Health.

OVARIAN CANCER The most serious of all female cancers is ovarian cancer. Over 2600 Canadian women are diagnosed every year and 1750 succumb to this disease. There is no screening test to detect this cancer but when found early and treated, the survival rate is 90%. If you have any abdominal symptoms that last for more than three weeks, see your doctor. VACCINES SAVE LIVES Many people tend to take vaccines for granted but they do save lives. The number of children saved from dying of measles during the past decade was over 9,500,000 worldwide. This represents a 74% drop in measles deaths. PROBIOTICS “FRIENDLY” BACTERIA Probiotics are “friendly” bacteria found in food products like yogurt and also available in capsules. Diarrhea is a side effect of many regular antibiotics. By taking probiotic supplements during antibiotic therapy, diarrhea can often be prevented. It is best to take the probiotic dose 2-4 hours after the antibiotic dose. HEAD LICE - WHAT WORKS NOW? Head lice often become a problem in children at this time of year. Some of the older lice treatments are not as effective anymore. Our pharmacists can advise you about those products. Our pharmacists are not only dispensers of medications but dispensers of information. We are always ready to help you with your questions about medications and health.

Hedley’s huglebeet project continues to see great volunteer effort Contributed by Area “G” Director Angelique Wood The Huglebeet was successful last week, with seven folks contributing to the build and one young audience member and the dog she was babysitting... Special guest included Michael Day, son of Bill Day, who works for Whistler and whose job includes the “greening” of the resort. We are very lucky in Hedley to have had the additional help, thanks for that. Mike Hayes was in charge and did a great job. Mike pointed out at our last “build” that we needed to focus on the back of the hugelbeet, so his suggestion was heeded and he was the one to make it happen. When hugelbuilders arrived two weeks ago, they found the sprinkler which Lynn Wells has lent us was wetting down the pile, a strategy suggested by Russ at the last build. He had observed that the large-scale wetting down by the fire department disrupts the pile,
and he felt we could accomplish the same thing with a sprinkler left on for longer periods. Voila! Bill Day donated a length of hose which can be added to the two which Angelique had already donated. Bill Day, Michael Day, Andy English, Cherie Rupprecht, Russ Stoney, Lynn Wells and their granddaughter Mikaela Day and Toby stopped by to visit. Last week’s work marked the day on which all material in the “sort area” was placed on the Hugelbeet and we have a clean area. Thank you all who worked so hard. Unfortunately, Russ pulled his back out, which is going to mean that his house painting project is going to suffer. This is too bad. Cherie took lots of photos of the group’s progress, (the one on the right included). Go team! This work is an awesome example of how a number of people working together can create something much bigger than themselves. Great work. Apologies to those who worked so hard last week, I, Angelique am in Little Shuswap, about an hour northeast of Kamloops at a Strategic Planning session for the Southern Interior Local Gov-
ernment Association. This group works hard to bring the issues which matter to our local, rural areas to the forefront of attention of the decision makers in Victoria by acting as a unified voice for its membership. Plans are coming together for a Hugelcelebration which will include food, an educational session, and a painting party/ art activity for kids this October. We’ll keep you posted.
Parking bylaw implicated as anti-business By Steve Arstad email@example.com There are a few Keremeos business people who feel the village’s present parking bylaw needs to be reviewed. They claim that it is an unnecessary expense at this time for village businesses, as parking in the village is currently not an issue. Following is an excerpt from Keremeos’ Off Street Parking and Loading bylaw outlining parking requirements by business in the village, as well as fees payable in lieu of being able to provide the necessary parking space. 5.1 OFF-STREET PARKING Subject to the provisions of Section 5.2, when any development takes place on any lot, off-street parking shall be provided and maintained in accordance with the regulations contained in Section 5. The minimum number of off-street parking spaces for motor vehicles required for any use shall be calculated according to Table 5.1. Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure (MOTI) regulations may apply for all sites that have direct access to a provincial highway. It is the responsibility of the developer to ensure that all MOTI requirements are met. 5.2 EXISTING BUILDINGS, STRUCTURES AND USES The regulations contained in this section shall not apply to buildings, structures or uses existing on the effective date of this Bylaw, except that off-street parking shall be provided and maintained in accordance with this section for any addition to such existing building or structure, or any change or additions to such existing use; 5.4 UNITS OF MEASUREMENT .1 Where gross floor area is used as a unit of measurement for the calculation of required parking spaces, it shall include the gross floor area of accessory buildings and basements, except where they are used for parking, utility or storage.
.2 Where the number of employees is used as a unit of measurement it shall mean the greatest number of persons at work, at any time of the day or night in a particular building or for a particular use during any season of the year. .3 Where seating accommodation is used as a unit of measurement, and such accommodation consists of benches, pews, booths, and the like, each 0.75 m of width of such seating accommodation shall be counted as one seat. .4 When the calculation of parking requirements results in a fractional parking space, one parking space shall be provided to meet this fractional requirement. 5.7 PAYMENT IN LIEU OF PARKING .1 Any person who applies for a Building Permit to construct or extend a building or structure for a use on a lot within the C1 zone which requires parking to be provided may, at his option, instead of providing such required parking spaces, pay to the Village the sum of $5,000 (Five Thousand Dollars) for each parking space required but not provided. .2 Any person who changes a use within the Cl zone such that this bylaw requires additional parking spaces to those already provided may, at his option, instead of providing said additional parking on site, pay to the Village the sum of $5,000 (Five Thousand Dollars) for each additional parking space required but not provided. .3 Payment in lieu of parking is payable at the time when: ·1 the Building Permit is issued for the building or structure that is being put to the use that requires the parking space specified in this Bylaw, or where no Building Permit is required, the use that requires the parking space specified in this Bylaw is granted a business licence; .2 parking spaces provided in this section are not available on a reserved or dedicated basis within a municipal parking lot.
Huglebeet voumteers clean up the project area.
More retirees are getting schooled these days It’s one of the perks of being comfortably retired after years spent building a career and raising a family, you now have the luxury of making personal choices. Like heading back to school to develop new skills, reawaken a life-long dream, explore new interests or to learn just for the pure joy of it. Every education choice has a cost. That’s why your retirement plan should include the funding that will allow you to return to the classroom. Here are a few options to get you going back to school: • Expand your RRSP eligible investments You already know that a balanced, retirementfunding investment strategy should include Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP) eligible investments, the best tax-deferred, retirement-savings builder for most Canadians. Consider expanding your RRSP investment strategy to provide a money source for the extra costs of your return to education. • Borrow from your RRSP Through the government’s Lifelong Learning Plan (LLP), you can withdraw up to $20,000 from your RRSP eligible investments for qualifying forms of training and education. But this is an option you don’t want to rush into because you are required to repay your LLP withdrawals within a 10-year period or they become taxable and you’ll also lose the significant tax-deferred growth those savings could have provided if left inside your RRSP for those 10 years. Repayments cannot be made after the end of the year in which you turn 71, so if you still have a balance at that time, you’ll have to pay tax on it. • Establish a TFSA Any Canadian over 18 can save up to $5,000 a year in a Tax-Free Savings Account (TFSA) eligible account. TFSA contributions are not tax-deductible but the investment earnings are tax-sheltered and taxes are not applied to withdrawals. Could be a good way to save for your education expenses. • Establish your own RESP People of any age can benefit from the tax-deferred savings offered by a Registered Education Savings Plan (RESP) eligible investments although, as an older student, you will not receive the added benefit of the Canadian Education Savings Grant* and other government grants that are available only to younger plan beneficiaries. Still, you may be in a lower tax bracket when you make your withdrawals to go back to school, so the tax deferral
MANAGING Your Money may result in you paying less tax than you would if you had invested outside the RESP. If you see a real or virtual classroom in your future and would like to realize your other retirement dreams, talk to your professional advisor about the best path to a financially secure retirement. *The Canada Education Savings Grant and Canada Learning Bond (CLB) are provided by the Government of Canada. CLB eligibility depends on family income levels. Some provinces make education savings grants available to their residents.
