Penticton Director Garry Litke (second from right) presents “Master Composter” awards to Summerland resident Philip Watson (far left) and Elisabeth Rettke (second from left) of Sunkatchers RV Resort west of Keremeos. The presentation was made during a committee meeting at the regional district on October 4. Assisting with the presentation at right is Solid Waste Management Coordinator Cameron Baughen.
High fire danger ratings persist throughout the regional district as our dry and unseasonably warm weather continues past Thanksgiving weekend. To protect public safety and reduce the risk of person caused fires in our regional area, the Regional District of OkanaganSimilkameen (RDOS) is implementing an extension to the No Burning Regulation until November 1. Effective immediately and until further notice, all open burning of any materials piled larger than 1/2 meter high by 1/2 meter wide, stubble
or grass, fireworks or burning barrels of any size or description. This prohibition in the RDOS is also in conjunction with the municipalities of Penticton, Summerland, Oliver, Osoyoos, Princeton, Village of Keremeos, Hedley Improvement District and the Ministry of Forest and Range, BC Forest Service - Kamloops Fire Centre This No Burning extension is in effect to protect public safety and to limit the risk of person-caused wildfires. This ban does not restrict fires in portable propane gas, briquette, wood burning fireplaces and campfires.
Regional district committee acknowledges work of volunteers in waste reduction program By Steve Arstad firstname.lastname@example.org The Environment and Infrastructure Committee of the regional district paid homage to two envrionmentally minded residents of the regional district at the committee meeting on October 4. Philip Watson of Summerland and Elisabeth Rettke of Sunkatchers RV Resort west of Keremeos were feted for their
volunteerism in educating RDOS residents on proper composting and recycling methods. The committee was faced with a motion to both recognize them for their volunteer efforts and award them the designation of “RDOS Master Composter / Recycler, something only two other regional district volunteers have received. Philip Watson attended the Master Composter/Recycler
workshop hosted by the RDOS in 2010. He was the proprietor of Green Yard Centre in Summerland where he promoted and educated people on a wide variety of different composting equipment. Philip also assisted in the construction of a compost bin at the Penticton Community garden and provided public information on composting at the Summerland Fall Fair and
at other public events. Elisabeth Rettke attended the Master Composter/Recycler workshop in 2011. The Sunkatchers resident has provided a number of workshops for residents while helping maintain the RV park’s composting and recycling programs. Rettke regularly visits the RDOS office in Penticton to get fresh flyers on new recycling programs for her presentations in
the Sunkatchers clubhouse. “These people are setting a standard for volunteers in the community,” Electoral Area “D” Director Tom Siddon observed, while Oliver rural Director Allan Patton noted that the RDOS curbside and waste reduction programs were amongst the most progressive in the province. The committee voted unanimously in favour of the motion.

Slumping slope causes concern for Twin Lakes resident

By Steve Arstad firstname.lastname@example.org A Twin Lakes area resident is fearful that a piece of mountainside above her house is going to slide, going public with her fears last week. Regional district officials and engineers from the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure, as well as the Ministry of Forests, Lands, and Resource Operations took a look at the situation on foot and by helicopter on Tuesday, October 2. At issue is a rock outcropping located above the far end of Resolute Road near Twin Lakes. The road provides access to a new subdivision known as Kaleden Acres. According to resident Sam Verigin, who lives directly below the outcropping, blasting work done during creation of the road in 2009 led to rock fracturing. Earlier this year, some pieces of the rock face broke off, and examination above the rock face reveals fissures large enough to have uprooted large trees. Verigin alerted media and public officials about the threat, prompting Tuesday’s response. “It’s the fissures that are opening up higher up that are my concern,” Verigan told the Review on October 4. “That’s where my real fear is.” Verigin said that engineers told her that no evacuation was necessary yet, but after challenging one of the ministry engineers to a $1 bet as to whether the outcrop would come down further than Resolute Road, she received no taker. Verigin said that she has had issues with the subdivision development in the past over work being done on the hillside above her residence. “I have had four concerns,” she said, “environmental - this area is an animal corridor - water, septic and sewage - I’m on the downside of this development - and land stability. The last concern is the issue where other
people have finally stepped in.” Verigin said that she had a new septic field installed two years ago, and a new well has recently given her water issues that she had not had in the past. “I’ve lived here for 30 years, and I’ve been a good environmental steward,” she said. “The well was producing good water, and now it’s discoloured.” Verigin feels the development has something to do with her water issues. “Up to now, I’ve been one voice and I’ve not been heard,” Verigin concluded. “The regional district obviously has failed because they passed this subdivision.” Kathleen Jagger is a partner in the development, with a professional background in geography. When contacted by the Review on October 4 she admitted that the issue caught her by surprise. “In the initial mailout, we were not included,” she said of the email notices that alerted press and government to the issue on October 2, an omission that left the landowner unprepared for the sudden attention. “We’ve been aware of the slide, which occurred onto an access road since the wetter weather this spring,” Jagger said. “Obviously, something needs to be done. We have not yet had contact with any government agency yet regarding their conclusion from their visit.” Jagger acknowledged the higher level of awareness people in the region have over landslides since Oliver’s Testaslinden Creek slide (June 13, 2010) and more recently, Johnson’s Landing (July 12, 2012) in the Kootenays. Jagger said that her discussions with the two ministry geotechnicians who appraised the situation on Tuesday revealed the slide to be a “rotational slide” meaning it was a slide or “slump” occurring on a curved plane, in hard rock, that was stable for now. Heavy rains could change the situation,

but the general consensus was that should it move further, it would come to a rest on Resolute Road and have no impact on Verigin’s house. Jagger said she would like to speak to government officials about it, adding that the subdivision road had all provincial approvals. Mark Woods, Community Services Manager for the Regional District Okanagan-Similkameen was part of the entourage that inspected the fissure on Tuesday, along with two staff members from the Ministry of Forests, Lands, and Resource Operations. “We have had an opportunity to consult with experts and get some feedback with respect to levels of risk,” he told the Review. “The RDOS’ goal was to assess the threat and decide if an evacuation order was warrranted, and at this time the conclusion is ‘no’.” Woods noted that the assessment of the condition of the fractured rock is that it would be contained by the plateau upon which Resolute Road is built. In order to reach Verigin’s house it would have to travel a further 300 metres through large trees, down a moderate slope. “We will be monitoring the situation,” Woods explained, “that means watching for changes in weather.” Woods further explained that the slide was being held up by a clay like material, which could be affected by heavy rainfall. He noted that the Ministry of Highways and Infrastructure also did an assessment and closed a portion of Resolute Road because of the potential threat to a portion of that roadway. “The landowner (Verigin) is currently comfortable with a no evacuation order, and their are currently no homes in the portion of the subdivision affected,” Woods concluded. “We are comfortable that Verigin is out of harm’s way under the current conditions. It’s now up to highways to work with the subdivision developers to decide how to correct the problem.”

Mayor summarizes UBCM conference activities By Manfred Bauer Mayor of Keremeos Every year delegates from all municipalities and regional districts in British Columbia meet to discuss issues of common concern. Resolutions are brought forward and their merits debated before being passed on to the provincial government for further consideration. Workshops are offered to educate local politicians on a variety of issues and updates on new rules and regulations are provided. This year’s theme of the conference was ‘In Conversation’, a reflection of the new age of communication through a variety of media and how to connect with the next generation using this new technology. Monday, September 24, the B.C. Mayor’s Caucus, an all day conference, gave opportunity to 140 mayors from around the province to talk about priority issues. The new federal long term infrastructure program (LTIP) and escalating local government expenses were two of the most pressing topics discussed. In support of the Federation of Canadian Municipalities the mayors caucus released the following statement: “We agree that our communities require immediate action to provide stable, predictable, long term infrastructure funding from federal and provincial government, to meet municipal needs as defined by each community’s priorities. This statement affirms and complements the efforts of UBCM and FCM to address the infrastructure needs of communities to ensure social, economic and environmental well-being” Tuesday, September 25, networking activities
and the “Small Talk Forum” provided a chance to talk with representatives from other small communities about common problems. Some of the leading concerns included health care, water, sewer, public transportation and sustainability of services. Wednesday, September 26, the conference started with reports, workshops and clinics as well as the resolution process and the election of the new UBCM board of directors. A panel of cabinet ministers was also available for a direct dialogue. Some of the presentations on Wednesday and Thursday included topics on: • Climate change • Community charter • Economic development • Emergency measures • MIABC/MFA • Small water systems • Poverty reduction strategies • Employment for persons with disabilities • B.C. policing plan • Decriminalisation of marijuana • Drug houses • Energy • First Nations • Responsible gambling • Fire departments • Communication • Voting over the internet • Recycling BC • Focus on seniors The conference concluded on Friday with the installation of the president elect and the premier addressing the delegates.

Joyce Fauteux from Sagewood Modular Home Park got the surprise of her life on September 25. She was planning to have her yard done in landscape rock, but has a bad back and can’t mow anymore. Saturday morning she was outside when she saw two dozen of her kids, grandchildren and great grandchildren coming towards her residence to help her with her yard work. Coincidentally, it was Fauteux’s birthday - her extended family helped her celebrate later in the day after the work was done.

South Okanagan Amateur Players present “The Long Weekend”
Wednesday, October 17 6:00 pm
The production, directed by Ted Osborne and Jen Jensen, runs October 18 – 20 at The Cannery Stage in Penticton, and October 26 – 27 at OSS Minitheatre in Osoyoos. Besides five evening performances at 8 p.m., there will be one 2 p.m. matinee on Saturday October 27 in Osoyoos, to encourage Oliver audiences to attend. The Long Weekend’s first act opens with a wealthy couple, Max and Wynn Trueman, entertaining Wynn’s best friend Abby and her husband Roger Nash for a weekend at their upscale country retreat. Their warm welcome quickly turns frosty as old jealousies resurface. Max, a pompous lawyer, can’t resist pointing out Roger’s failure as a writer. Wynn, a therapist, lives in constant dread of designer Abby’s delightfully scathing comments about her taste in fashion and home decor. The hilarity comes in the contrast between their public niceties and private putdowns. The comedy will resonate with anyone who has ever been a reluctant house guest or has hosted guests who
Newest play begins October 18 at The Cannery stage in Penticton Contributed “This is going to be the longest weekend of my life,” grumbles one character in SOAP’s October production of The Long Weekend by Norm Foster. However, the South Okanagan Amateur Players promise this quickwitted comedy will feel anything but long. The script has been described as “mischievous fun”, with “doubled over laughs” and “scrumptious plot twists”. “We were literally weeping with laughter when reading through the script for the first time,” says stage manager Patrick Turner. “It was so funny we could barely get the words out.” Norm Foster is Canada’s most prolific and most-performed playwright, often compared to Neil Simon for his smart, crisp dialogue, strong characters, and true-to-life plots.
outstay their welcome. The laughs increase as surprising revelations cause the couples to rethink their allegiances. The gloves come off, and the audience is in for a crazy, truthtelling ride. As quickly as one character spills the beans, new secrets are created, until the final curtain when the last and greatest plot twist is revealed. Along the way are clever one-liners, running gags, and some steamy romance. Starring as the foursome is the strong cast of Tom Szalay (Max), Aimee Grice (Wynn), Penelope Johnson (Abby), and Craig Bjornson (Roger). Tickets for The Long Weekend are $18 adults and $15 seniors / students, at Your Dollar Store with More (Osoyoos) and Sundance Video (Oliver). Cannery Stage tickets are sold through Dragon’s Den (Front Street, Penticton). Tickets will also be sold at the door subject to seat availability. Adult situations. Recommended for 16 and older.

Second town hall meeting scheduled for Olalla Town hall meeting at the Elks hall in Keremeos 11 a.m. Saturday November 3 Contributed At the previous Regional District Okanagan Similkameen town hall meeting about Olalla water, a group of Olalla residents gathered seeking a less provocative and more cooperative approach. These Olalla residents call themselves (FOO) Friends of Olalla and need the community’s approval to improve the image of their neighborhood. FOO gathered around a kitchen table
for their second time in search of a concept that would catch approval of the community and develop the charm of Olalla. The number of supporters is steadily growing, and now there are twenty members including the property owner adjacent to our proposed first project. A mission statement was agreed and action items were followed up, tasks were created, and additional highly creative ideas were presented for the first project. The screen hedge estimates were garnered, and proved that a screen hedge approach would be quite costly and time consuming. An inexpensive, quick, and highly creative alternative to the
screen hedge proposed to create two rock landscape features located at both the north and south ends of Olalla. These features would be comprised of local rocks that could easily be found. Adding a sign displaying the local Olalla goat and surrounded by local plants is one idea that was presented, and FOO found this a quicker cheaper more attractive approach towards creating both harmony and beauty more inclusively for Olalla neighborhood. We have agreed to accept no title or authority to resist new rules or codes or legal instruments that would impede the freedom of the people of Olalla to improve the quality of their lives in their own
way. We invite the residents of Olalla and the wider Similkameen community to support this initiative of neighbors helping neighbors. Please help. We need active or non-active supporters, comments or suggestions, that will enhance the quality of life in Olalla. A community based solution to improve Olalla.

THE REVIEW Publisher: Mark Walker 605 7th Ave, Keremeos Box 130, Keremeos, B.C. V0X 1N0
Editorial Time for politicians to adjust The Regional District Okanagan Similkameen Board of Directors’ October 4 meeting had a moderate agenda attached to it. The directors met for two committee meetings and a regular board meeting, all of which was scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. and finish at 11:30. It was a bit of a surprise, then, to note that the directors were also scheduled to have a taxpayer funded lunch afterwards. It appears that for the most part, as goes the economy, so goes politics. That is, when the economy is slow, so are politics. There aren’t as many grants to spend, variances to approve, or new legislation to discuss. As a matter of fact, several other RDOS board meetings this year ended around noon, and one regular meeting in August was actually cancelled because of a lack of agenda - which is fine. When there is nothing to discuss, there is no need to waste time meeting. A couple of those other meetings that ended around noon did not include lunch in the agenda, which makes it even more curious as to why it would be included in an agenda that was scheduled to end before noon. Was there a backlash from director(s) used to the privilege, insisting that lunch be provided at each regular meeting? Let’s face it - free food at a director’s meeting is a perk. It is provided in order for meetings to continue through the day with a minimum of interuption that would otherwise be caused from everyone going their own separate ways for food throughout some of the long days that can make up regular board meeting. But nowadays, in a slow economy that has created a definite lack of imperative for government business as well, everyone should be cutting back when and where they can - even those with controls on the public purse. Our local politicians need to adjust to tight economic times like the rest of society - and learn to police themselves when it comes to freebies at the taxpayers’ expense.

Skills training ‘our mission,’ Dix declares By Tom Fletcher Black Press My column on skills training a couple of weeks ago gave short shrift to the NDP position: tax the banks and hand out grants for women’s studies, sociology and other worthless pursuits, while skilled jobs go begging. That’s a pretty crude caricature, so I sat down with NDP leader Adrian Dix in his legislature office last week to get a better sense of his thinking on the subject. Dix has been devoting a lot of time lately to skills training, in trades particularly. He meets frequently with business people now, and his recent speeches emphasize that every one of them talks about the growing shortage of skilled employees. Dix credits Premier Christy Clark and jobs minister Pat Bell with making some good moves recently, announcing equipment upgrades for vocational programs around the province.
He says it’s because the NDP have been “pounding away at them for eight months” about freezing advanced education spending in their March budget. Dix calls that a crucial mistake and predicts the government will reverse it soon. “So I think, if we’re going to have a mission for four years as a government, if we’re elected, this is the mission: to start to address the skills shortage,” he told me. In his speech to the recent municipal convention, and again at an NDP provincial council meeting, Dix zeroed in on B.C.’s apprenticeship system. Since the B.C. Liberals took it from trade unions and set up a Crown corporation called the Industry Training Authority in 2004, the completion rate for apprentices has fallen to 37 per cent, he said. Dix assured me he isn’t proposing to “blow up” the ITA, or hand control back to unions. They will have “a voice,” along with business. Speaking to the NDP
executive, Dix referred to Phil Hochstein, president of the non-union Independent Contractors and Businesses’ Association, as the symbol of trades training decline. Not surprisingly, Hochstein has a different take. The 37 per cent figure is misleading, Hochstein said, because under the ITA there are currently 32,000 apprentices in the system, twice as many as when it was union controlled. Many drop out in the first year, and Alberta claims a better completion rate because they don’t start counting until the second year. And when Dix touts Alberta’s “mandatory” trade system, Hochstein said he means returning to a system where all work is restricted to journeymen or registered apprentices of that trade. “What it does is impose union jurisdiction on the training system of the entire construction industry,” Hochstein said. “So multiskilling, multi-tasking, organizing the work in the most efficient way is blown out of the water, and it’s stuck in the old craft system of
training.” The marketplace has spoken on that restrictive system, he said, and unionized construction is down to about five per cent of the market, based on payroll. Hochstein said the NDP talks a great game about getting more young people into trades. But when unions have the upper hand, they will always favour seniority. A quota of two apprentices per journeyman means another one can’t be hired. Dix agreed with me that the public school system has over-emphasized university, to the detriment of not just industrial trades but lab techs, chefs and other skilled workers that are in short supply. As B.C. Federation of Labour president Jim Sinclair recently noted, tradesmen themselves often don’t encourage their kids, because they’ve been told all their lives that they are “tool monkeys” in a deadend job. And would NDP student grants be targeted to need? Dix’s answer was a definite maybe.

Twin Lakes makes observations of re- BREAKING NEWS: cent board meeting over water issue THE REVIEW IS ALSO AVAILABLE ONLINE AT To the Editor: Seems the affairs of the RDOS and business interests that approach them are so much more intertwined than that of the lowly voter/ resident/ taxpayer/ citizen who has absolutely no impact in any process that “business” initiates. Take for example the recent RDOS meeting of September 20 wherein a very concerned local activist was granted only five minutes to advise the RDOS board of the imperilment of an entire aquifer in the Twin Lakes watershed by a golf course business development advertising “resort” status. The board quaintly thanked the presenter and referred to her repeatedly as “Ms. Brown, Ms. Brown, Ms. Brown”. Those of us who have this magnificent woman as a neighbour and a champion know her as Coral. We are familiar with her. Not everybody agrees with her stance in the neighbourhood, but that’s not what this letter is about. What it’s about, is the familiarity that the chair of the RDOS board, a businessman, introduced the proposing developer, a professional businessman, to his board colleagues. “You all know Suki”, he said as he smiled serenely, and clearly indicated to me at least, his affinity for the man with the plan. Collectively, the board watched as the slick and complicated powerpoint presentation was delivered by the other “hired and paid for service providing certified professional businessman”. Some of what the presentation showed was in fact, historical documentation which ironically was introduced by the proponents of protecting the aquifer. But here, it was more used like a target to shoot holes in, to shred into smithereens, to discredit and in fact to stand and point fingers at longtime benevolent minded residents and suggesting that they were water hogs. Shame on them for that! How dare they! Secondly, and speaking of shredded to
smithereens, has anyone in the actual “We Can Do Something About That!” part of our governmental or social network of ecological activists, given any degree of attention to the fracking destruction and devastation of natural ancient, fragile, volcanic rock in the Twin Lakes/ Kaleden Acres area of Highway 3A south? Honest to goodness, it is some of the most abhorrent mis-manipulation of local ecology that I could ever imagine. There seems to have been no real forethought given to the resulting current status of the development/ subdivision due to significant dynamiting, displacement and redistribution of masses of rock and trees and aggregates. The mountain is cracking open in ways that you likely wouldn’t want your dream home near. But someone’s dream home and life is there, and this development seems to have compromised it significantly. This caring and concerned neighbour/ resident has repeatedly made effort to draw attention to the extreme degradation of natural critical wildlife habitat with ancient traditional corridors, and has had complete and utter nothing (save lip service) from repeated elected officials, environmental groups and organizations etc., only to have to try to educate the next person who replaces the departing official position holder for any number of reasons over the number of years. Very recently, this neighbour has experienced serious compromises of systems on her property and looks upward in wonder at the likely cause. It’s a shell game of officials, laws, by-laws, amendments, exceptions, permissions, allowances, variances, applications, endless agendas with resolution sure to not be reached until the meeting that not enough people show up to defend their rights to defend their community from exploitative businessmen like we see running much of the world we live in today. Steve Brown, Twin Lakes
Waxing poetic about the Enbridge pipeline To the Editor: I have no voice - I have no choice - I have no say - I have to do whatever my masters say. I am to be a future pipeline so I’m told - for the transport of oil, that liquid gold. Unlike Fed X or U.P.S if my seams burst or a tanker sinks - no doubt will leave a giant mess or slick - making God’s forests and all his creatures far beyond being sick. I don’t drive the highways on land or fly airplanes in the sky but super tankers carry my cargo from tar-oil sands to foreign lands far across the sea with no thought or worry about mother nature - you and me. Like a snake built of man-made steel, I will wind and slither through pristine wilderness and sail in waters clear. If I get the crook as they say “down under”
this Enbridge caper could be their biggest blunder . From the high and low of mountain peaks - through the pristine wilderness trails - over and under babbling creeks - rivers and winding streams I will creep. I have no shame built in my metal skin as the name of man’s game is likely my only sin. Why, oh why is the greed for the almighty buck - greater to those who don’t give a youknow-what. I have no conscience like my builder so please don’t blame me or Mr. Clean who can clean your house and everything that’s in it but a potential leaky such as I - will only make Him and the whole world cry. Tom Isherwood, Olalla

911 dispatch report
By Steve Arstad firstname.lastname@example.org An argriculturalist mowing his orchard struck a rock and ignited the third wildfire to affect the Keremeos and Cawston this season on October 2. The late season fire followed on the heels of an evening wildfire near Upper Bench Road two weeks ago. The Tuesday fire started in a Barcelo Road orchard, near its southern end. It burned in grass and scattered pine, heading south and up nearby hillsides. “Everyone’s property was pretty much safe,” reported Keremeos Volunteer Fire Department Chief Jordy Bosscha, who, along with the Keremeos crew, spent several hours on the fire Tuesday evening. Ministry of Forests also responded to the 16 hectare blaze with ground and air attack crews. Water bombers made three passes on Tuesday evening. There was little fire activity notable on Wednesday afternoon, and forestry crews had adopted a monitoring stance on the outbreak. There are sufficient

natural barriers in the fire’s path to contain it, Bosscha also noted. The Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations reported in a press release on October 3 that “Due to the steep and inaccessible terrain within the fire, crews will not be able to safely access some areas. Smoke from this fire will be visible until conditions cool down and the area receives precipitation. With unseasonably warm and dry weather conditions expected to continue beyond the Thanksgiving Day long weekend, the Kamloops Fire Centre is urging the public to continue to be cautious with their outdoor activities.” The Regional District Okanagan Similkameen has also implemented an extension to their burning ban. .

Environmental approval clears way for launch repairs By Steve Arstad news@keremeosreview. com The regional district recently received environmental approval for maintenance work on the boat launches in
Kaleden and Okanagan Falls. “We are in the process of finding the time to go back and make repairs,” RDOS Community Services Manager mark Woods told the Review, noting that contractor
Greyback Construction would be making the repairs. Woods explained that constant wave action had been eroding the base of both launches, but could be easily repaired by using larger “armour-
ing” rocks to protect the sides. “The design is such that it is an easy process to release the chains to separate the damaged slabs and replace them,” Woods said. He added that the work would take
Bauer meets with seniors Contributed Mayor Bauer spoke about the combined efforts of the Village of Keremeos and Regional District Area “B” and “G” to support the business community financially and otherwise: • Last year alone 31,000 dollars to info centre (also houses the office of the chamber). • $4,800 in community events (Canada Day, Taste of the Valley, Sizzle, Christmas parade etc.). • Grants in aid and donations (Kars under the “K”, Keremeos Rodeo etc.). • Tens of thousands of dollars through the Similkameen Valley Planning Society, addressing projects in health, community and economic development. (presently watershed plan and regional tourism strategy). • The village had a tax incentive in place for at least seven years for business improvements. (not one business has applied). • The village has kept the ratio between business and residential tax at a constant rate for the last six years by reducing the business tax rate to keep it competitive. • We were one of the first communities to introduce the mobile business license and Biz pal. (mobility for trades and one stop shopping). • Half of the business license fees goes straight into an economic development account
and is reinvested back into the community. • One of our councillors attends all chamber meetings to work as closely with our chamber as possible. Unfortunately a large number of businesses are not members of the chamber. This makes it very difficult to get the work done with the few people who volunteer their time to make things happen. There are barely enough people to fill the positions of the directors on the board of the chamber and of course those who are not members still benefit from the work the chamber does. One final comment on parking requirements for businesses: These requirements were developed together with the business community. Almost all businesses are grandfathered and these new requirements only apply if you change the zoning or new development.Selling your business has more to do with succession planning and reinvesting in your business to make it attractive for future investors, not with parking requirements. We are always open for new suggestions and new approaches. A short update on OCP, LWMP and the new village website as well as a short report on UBCM followed. Questions from the floor covered a wide range of topics.

Discovering the universe with robot explorers A l though having a human explorer on the spot is the quickest way to find things out, this is not always feasible, affordable, or safe. That is where robot explorers come in. Losing one of them is obviously not desirable, but no lives are endangered, no life support is needed, and there is no need to build in a means of getting home. Our first explorers were satellites like Alouette, which orbited the Earth, ran sensors and sent back data until their batteries or solar cells failed, or some other problem stopped them working. Then there were spacecraft like Lunar Surveyor, which landed on the Moon, the two Viking land-
ers on Mars, or the various spacecraft that soft-landed on Venus, where they sent data for 20 minutes or so before being fried by the high temperatures. These did not have the power to move around. Our view was confined to one location. However, the ideal explorer is something that can trundle around and explore different locations. One of the earliest ones of these was Lunokhod, which was landed on the surface of the Moon by the Soviet Union. It looked like a wheeled bathtub with an open lid, which contained the solar cells providing its power. Unfortunately, even with a mobile lander on the Moon, which lies only about 384,000 k i l o m e t r e s a w a y, we encountered the beginning of a problem. Radio waves
travel at the speed of light, just under 300,000 kilometres a second. That means a radio signal takes about a second and a quarter to get from the Moon to the Earth or vice versa. In your driving seat on Earth, your view through the windshield is over a second old, and if you put your foot on the brake pedal, the brakes go on over a second later. The only safe way to avoid a crash or getting stuck was to drive Lunokhod very slowly. If we have rovers trundling around on the surface of Mars, a robot submarine exploring the icecovered oceans of Europa, a robot paddleboat sailing the oceans of Titan, or an instrumented aircraft flying the atmosphere of Jupiter, the remote control idea becomes completely unwork-
able. Signals from the explorers will take tens of minutes to hours to reach us; our controlling signals just as long to get back to the vehicles, and then just as long again for us to see what happened. The only solution is to make our explorers robots, able to make decisions for themselves. We will tell them where we want them to go, and then leave the robots themselves to plan the route and get to their destination without getting stuck or colliding with something on the way. Fortunately, great strides are being made in computer power, machine intelligence and imaging. Robots can now recognize obstacles and plan their routes to avoid them, and when they reach their destinations, can carry out elaborate observations
and experiments. In a decade or two our robots will be far smarter. Most of our pioneers in the exploration of space will be robots. They are no substitute for people, but they can be the pathfinders and are happy with journeys taking many years. Robots will continue to explore the outer Solar System and will be our initial emissaries to the stars. Moreover, it is nice to know that robotics is something that Canada is rather good at. Mars is low in the Southwest after sunset. Jupiter rises around 10 p.m. and Venus around 4 a.m. The Moon will be new on the 15th.

health what is CONSCIOUS CHANNELLING? Conscious channelling is the ability to quiet the busy mind, attune to the higher vibrational frequencies of the Angelic and Celestial realms, and bring through messages of Love and Wisdom from your Higher Self, Ascended Masters, Spirit Guides and Angels, while staying fully present (awake) in your body. Conscious channelling teaches you step-by-step technique of how to connect with your 12th Dimensional body... at this level you have access to Beings whom you would not be able to access from your 3rd Dimensional space. This connection creates coherence in you, in your life AND in your environment. Being in your connected space you have a positive effect on your environment, wherever you are...bringing coherence where there may be chaos. This is a tool that can be used at work, play or for meditation and prayer. (The whole purpose of prayer and meditation is to connect and communicate with the Higher Realms!) Conscious channelling makes you aware of how supported you are by the Angelic and Celestial Realms. You can then go forward in life with less fear, knowing that you have a support base of untold power! You can learn how to do this form of channelling in a 2-day workshop. You will learn a step-by-step technique to connect with your 12th dimensional body. Once learnt you cannot unlearn it, like riding a bicycle. This technique is unique in that it is able to connect you to the 12th Dimension. You would never be able to meditate to reach the 12th Dimension. That would be like saying if you jump long and hard enough you would be able to reach the level where an aeroplane can fly - that is just not humanly possible.
TRAVELING OVER 60 People over the age of 60 make up a large part of the traveling community. This age group is more susceptible to medical problems while traveling and do well to adhere to preventive measures like: wearing support stockings on long-distance flights; keeping up hydration; washing hands often; using disposable tissues and even using face masks in crowded situations and insect repellants when called for. STEM CELLS UNIQUE Stem cells are unique cells in the body that have the ability to change into other types of cells. They could be used to repair spinal cord injuries, repair damaged hearts and even help Alzheimer’s patients. It was found recently that stem cells remain alive up to two weeks after death. Donation of organs is common and in the future, stem cell donation could also be an option.
WHO ADDS DIESEL TO LIST It’s always a concern whether the pollution we put into our air World Renowned teacher Allison Scott from South Africa is coming to Penticton for the first time to teach the is causing health problems.

Make the decision to take your power back and take responsibility for your life, knowing you have the tools you will need to do so!
MUSCLE CRAMPS - ELECTROLYTE IMBALANCE? Muscle cramps could be caused by an electrolyte imbalance which is easily confirmed by a blood test. If that’s not the problem, try leg stretches before bedtime and keep alcohol and caffeine consumption to a minimum because they can cause dehydration which can make cramps more likely to happen. For fast, courteous and informative prescription service, give our brand of pharmacy a try.

OBITUARY BURNS RICHARD JAMES: It is with profound sadness I announce the passing of Rick at the Penticton Regional Hospital on October 2, 2012 with his wife, Bonnie, by his side. He will be lovingly remembered by his wife, Veronica â€œBonnieâ€? Burns, Ă€ve children; Tracey Burns, Alan (Kathy) Burns, Laurie Dulmage, Darlene (Mike) Link, Lorne (Chantale) Derick, all of Ontario, eleven grandchildren, two great grandchildren and one sister, Margaret Burns of Ontario. Sadly predeceased by his dad, David and mother, Lily. Rick had a love of music, he played bass guitar in the band D.W.G. (Damn Weâ€™re Good) He could come up with the darnest words, we called it the â€œRicktionary.â€? Tinkering and repaired old cars and motorcycles with his friend John, who predeceased Rick, was one of his greatest joys. After years of moving around with the Air Force, Rick Ă€nally settled in Ontario. Rick and Bonnie made the big crosscountry journey by bus to Keremeos in 2003. I do not remember memories, I remember moments. Memorial tributes may be made to the BC Heart & Stroke Foundation, #41551 Sutherland Avenue, Kelowna, BC V1Y 9M9 and the MS Society of Canada, 15014330 Kingsway, Burnaby, BC V5H 4G7.

Donating publicly-traded securities – a giving strategy that can work for you When it comes to charitable giving, Canadians are among the best in the world. According to Statistics Canada, 5.7 million Canadians reported making a charitable donation in 2010 for a total of just under $8.3 billion.1 The simplest giving strategy is a cash donation but that may not be the best strategy for you. One that can not only help the charitable organization, but also help the donor to save on taxes, is the gifting strategy of donating publicly-traded securities. Donating publicly-traded securities (such as shares or mutual fund units) directly to a charity is more tax-efficient than selling the securities and donating the cash proceeds. If you sell shares or mutual fund units to make a cash donation you’ll have to include 50% of the realized capital gains as taxable income when you dispose of the shares or units. However, if you donate the shares or units directly to the charity there is no capital gains and accordingly no income tax payable. Here’s an example: You have $100,000 of securities that originally cost you $30,000 (the “cost base” of that asset). You sell the securities and donate the $100,000 to your charity. If your marginal tax rate is 46%, the sale of securities will create a tax liability of $16,100 (based on the $70,000 increase in the securities’ value times the 50% capital gains inclusion rate times your 46% marginal tax rate). However, if you make what is known as an ‘in-kind’ gift by donating the securities directly to the charity, your tax liability for the capital gain would be zero. Your charitable donation receipt would be for the fair market value of the securities on the date that the ownership of the securities was transferred to the charity. The special capital gains inclusion rate applies to ‘inkind’ gifts to registered charitable organizations as well as public and private foundations. The charity/foundation must have a broker account into which the shares or units can be transferred. Charities typically have special forms to smooth the transfer process or your advisor may be able

As most Canadians turn back the clocks on November 4, here are some timely smoke and carbon monoxide safety tips: • You have less than three minutes to escape a fire. So when smoke alarms sound, everyone must know what to do and where to go. Having and practising an escape plan is essential. • Install one smoke alarm on every storey and outside bedrooms. Install inside bedrooms if you sleep with doors closed. • Ensure all smoke alarms are fully powered. Never take out batteries or remove an alarm from ceiling due to a false alarm. • If your home has any fuel-burning devices such as a gas furnace, gas water heater, gas appliances, or an attached garage or carport, install at least one CSA-approved carbon monoxide outside all sleeping areas. One per storey is recommended. • Replace smoke alarms every 10 years, and CO alarms every 7-10 years (depending on manufacturer) whether battery operated or hardwired into your home’s electrical system. More home safety resources can be found on the www.safeathome.ca web site. Home Safety Quiz: How much do you know about fire and carbon monoxide? Do you know everything you need to know about fire and Okanagan Falls Fire Department carbon monoxide safety? Take this short home safety quiz to test your knowledge: 1) Smoke and CO alarms last forever whether hardwired, plug in or battery powered. T F 2) CO alarms must be installed on the ceiling, like smoke alarms. T F 3) There are two types of smoke alarms, each with different sensing technology. T F 4) There is dangerous radioactive material in smoke alarms. T F 5) It is illegal to throw out a smoke or CO alarm into the regular garbage. Okanagan Falls Fire Department will be at the Okanagan Falls T F Elementary School on Thursday Oct. 11 from 9 am to 1 pm. 6) Having working smoke alarms increases your chance of escaping a fire by 50%. T F 7) On average, you have less than three minutes to escape a fire before it reaches ‘flashover’. T F 8) You need to rewire your home if you want to install interconnected smoke alarms…when one rings they all ring. T F

Carbon monoxide is colourless, odourless and tasteless. So without a CO alarm, humans cannot detect its presence. Despite the average home having several potential sources of the deadly gas, studies show that nearly 60 per cent of Canadians have not INSTALLED A #/ ALARM )N ADdition to being impossible to detect, CO also has another nefarious trait.

Analysis was undertaken on almost 50,000 ďŹ res that occurred in Alberta, British Columbia, and Ontario over a 5-year period involving 663 fatalities. The ďŹ ndings demonstrated that the death rate per 1,000 ďŹ res in the absence of a present, functioning smoke alarm was 74% greater than when a functioning smoke alarm was present.

Often, victims never wake up. Se-
niors will often need assistance from family members to put safety measures into place. As well, family members are in the best position to reinforce the precautions necessary to help their loved ones prevent or respond to a ďŹ re. Focus on these six priorities to help aging family members protect themselves against ďŹ re in the home.
N INSTALL smoke alarms inside every bedroom, outside each sleeping area and on every level of the home, including the basement. N Larger homes may need ADDITIONAL smoke alarms to provide enough protection. N For the best protection, INTERCONNECT all smoke alarms so when one sounds they all sound. N An IONIZATION smoke alarm is generally more responsive to ďŹ‚aming ďŹ res and a PHOTOELECTRIC smoke alarm is generally more responsive to smoldering ďŹ res. For the best protection, both types of alarms or combination ionization and photoelectric alarms (also known as dual sensor alarms) are recommended. N Smoke alarms should be INSTALLED away from the kitchen to prevent false alarms. Generally, they should be at least 10 feet (3 meters) from a cooking appliance. N REPLACE all smoke alarms when they are 10 years old.
Know the sources of carbon monoxide in your home Carbon monoxide has taken the lives of entire families, left scores of people with debilitating physical and mental handicaps, and, sent hundreds more to hospital. So why do so few of us have the one inexpensive safety device in our homes that protects us from this deadly gas? â€œCarbon monoxide safety comes down to awareness and education,â€? says Carol Heller, a home safety specialist with Kidde Canada. â€œFirst you need to realize the danger is very real. Second, you need to know the potential sources of CO in your home. Many people think they donâ€™t need a carbon monoxide alarm because they have electric baseboard heaters. But they may have a gas water heater or stove, a gas or wood fireplace, or a garage or carport attached to their house. All these are potential sources of CO.â€? So long as carbon monoxide is vented outside, there is no danger. But if appliances or heating systems are not properly maintained, or chimneys and vents become blocked or cracked, deadly CO can seep back into your homeâ€Śand you wonâ€™t even know it. And since exposure to CO mimics the flu, many people make the mistake of thinking the symptoms they are experiencing will just â€œgo awayâ€? in time. So they stay home from work or school hoping to get better, when exactly the opposite happens. â€œIf you have potential sources of carbon monoxide in your home, installing protection is easy and inexpensive,â€? Heller says. â€œYou can find CSA-approved carbon monoxide alarms in any hardware store that cost on average about two cents a day to operate over their lifespan.â€? Installing one CO alarm per storey is recommended by the National Fire Protection Association but, at a minimum, install one outside all sleeping areas. Canadians seem to prefer models that feature a continuous digital readout. â€œA digital readout shows you any level of CO in your home,â€? says Heller. â€œSo you can take action before the gas reaches dangerous levels. Look for models where the display is continuous, not models where you need to physically push a button to get a reading. That way you get instant peace of mind every time you glance at the alarm and see its zero reading.â€? More CO safety tips can be found on the www. safeathome.ca web site.
(1) Fâ€”Replace smoke alarms every 10 years and CO alarms every 7-10 years depending on manufacturer. (2) Fâ€”The deadly gas mixes with air, so an alarm can be installed at any height. (3) Tâ€”Ionization alarms are best for general living areas and photoelectric alarms are best for kitchen areas. (4) Fâ€”While ionization smoke alarms do have a small radioactive component in its sensor, you get 500x more radiation from eating vegetables than you do from a smoke alarm in a whole year. (5) Fâ€”Homeowners may safely dispose of personal use smoke alarms, up to 10 at one time, in their regular garbage stream. In British Columbia, there is a pilot recycling program underway in conjunction with all smoke alarm manufacturers. (6) Tâ€”Studies prove it. Install one on every storey and inside bedrooms if you sleep with the doors closed. (7) Tâ€”Many factors, including the materials used in home furnishings, have reduced average time to escape from over 15 minutes to less than 3 minutes. (8) Fâ€”Some models are wireless and interconnected so they can be installed in older homes with no expensive rewiring required.

FIRE SAFETY WEEK
October 7 - 14, 2012 A Salute to Firefighters Hedley Fire Department Celebrates 100 Years of Service The Hedley Fire Department held a celebration of their 100 year anniversary, starting with an apparatus demonstration, and a ”water ballet” spraying water against a beautiful blue sky, creating rainbows against that spectacular backdrop. It was explained to spectators why we did things in such and such a way, why we wore turnout gear and Self Contained Breathing Apparatus and how the pump hoses and nozzles operated. A well attended open house with a historical display well as all of the current apparatus, People could view the equipment, ask questions as to how they work, and see the contrast between firefighting today and 100 years ago.

Children as well as some older folk were entertained by being able to put out a “structure fire” using forest fire equipment, emulating in a very small way what a regular structure fire would be like. This celebration was held in place of Fire Prevention Week as home and fire safety were one of the themes of the day. The Hedley Fire Department now has a full roster of 20 with an average of 14 at each practice. This includes two junior firefighters one who will graduate next year and become a regular firefighter. We hold regular practices on Tuesdays and optional practices on Saturdays so that people who miss regular practice can catch up, as well as those on probation can get more experience. We have been holding “cross training” exercises with the Keremeos Fire Department in areas such as roof venting and water transfer. We have also trained with the Princeton Fire Department. This is invaluable practice to expose our members to advanced instruction and experience practical training.
We appreciate all that you do. Many thanks for your hard work this year! Angelique Wood Electoral Area Director

The Keremeos Volunteer Fire Department is once again giving Cawston primary students the opportunity to participate in an educational fire safety program designed to prevent fire-related injuries and fatalities. Produced by Gateway Community Safety Net, the Fire Safety for Kids book, features information on how to avoid fire, plan an escape route from your home and what to do if fire breaks out. It also offers health and first aid information, along with important safety tips for parents, teachers, and babysitters. Also included is an educational DVD that features animated characters, interactive games, and quizzes. It connects to the Community Safety Net web site, where kids can enter online contests and win great prizes. The materials have been provided thanks to the generous support of local businesses and organizations. An excellent resource for parents, the programs contain important information and websites for more help. A copy of this material can be seen at the Village of Keremeos and the Keremeos Review offices. House fires are the third leading cause of death among children â€” mostly as a result of smoke inhalation. Kids start 30% of these fires. Such sobering statistics illustrate the need for fire safety education among young people. There will be an assembly and fire drill at the Cawston School on Friday October 12 at 9:15 am. Parents are welcome to come and participate. Thanks to these proud supporters of this program, every student in the Cawston school will received a Fire Safety book. â€˘ Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 192 â€˘ Lower Similkameen Indian Band â€˘ Cawston Marketplace â€˘ Mytown Realty Ltd. â€˘ Elks Motel â€˘ Direct Organics Plus Ltd. â€˘ Sunset Motel â€˘ Keremeos Building Supplies Irly Building Centre â€˘ Joan McMurray - Royal LePage Locations West Keremeos â€˘ Keremeos Pharmasave â€˘ Vesper Transport Ltd.
