Auxiliary Fashion Show comeback Lisa Carleton lisa@similkameenspotlight.com

After a four year hiatus, the Hospital Auxiliary Fashion Show returned. Members of the auxiliary, Ruth McLeod and Dianne Easterling organized the affair. On Monday, Oct. 22 from 2 to 4 p.m., ladies from the Hospital Auxiliary modelled fashions from The Boutique —(what they fondly call the Princeton Hospital Auxiliary Thrift Store) and while watching the show, audience members were treated to various baked goodies, coffee and tea, made and served by members of the auxiliary. McLeod said that she and Easterling felt that having a fashion show again was “a good way to introduce new members and to provide some good PR for the store.” Emcee Laila Bird, welcomed a jam-packed hall of guests, stating that it was, “great to see such a lovely crowd.” “The Boutique,” she added, “is one of the best places to buy clothing in Princeton.” Servers, spotters and emcee Laila Bird were all wearing clothing that can be purchased at The Boutique. Bird mentioned that she could see that many women in the audience were as well wearing Boutique fashions. Bird went on to announce the models and give explanation of the fashions they wore. Lynn Boyd, Doreen Poulsen, Grace Rice, Sharron Rose and Joy Linden modelled casual wear, business wear and evening wear. The afternoon turned out to be a great fundraiser—proof of which was the full house of ladies with smiles enjoying an afternoon out and a fashion show to boot. The Princeton Hospital Auxiliary is a proud supporter of the community.

Having concern for local issues, and time spent working for candidates, convinced Brad Hope to step into the world of politics. In 2008 he was elected as Area H Director for the Regional District of Okanagan-Similkameen. (RDOS) He was again elected in 2011. Director Hope has enjoyed getting to know and working with the residents of Tulameen, Coalmont, Eastgate, Osprey and Chain Lakes, Allison Lake and the Princeton areas. He has become well known for his dedication to the environment and support of numerous projects such as; Tulameen’s “Raise The Roof ”, the library, museum, airport and the trails in the area—just to name a few. For the past seven months he has

also spent a great deal of time working with the Stakeholders group trying to resolve the hospital issues. Most recently, residents of the Osprey, Link and Chain Lakes area are extending their gratitude and appreciation towards Director Hope and the RDOS. On Saturday, Oct. 13, Director Hope presented two cheques from the RDOS to assist residents of these areas with two items of major concern. The Osprey Water board - governing water service to 87 households. The Westmere Lake Dam, which had been serving the households since the mid 1960’s had to be decommissioned

RCMP remind residents that 9-1-1 emergency calls cannot be received via text message at the call centre.

9-1-1 emergency calls cannot be received via text messaging The RCMP would like to remind all residents in the Southeast District that 9-1-1 emergency calls cannot be received via a text message. The equipment is not available to receive text messages at the 9-1-1 Centre located in Kelowna. Currently there is an increasing number of ways to communicate, with text, email, and social media becoming more widely used. Although these options are great for interpersonal communication, or commenting on the RCMP’s Facebook page, the RCMP is unable to accept reports of crime or other emergencies through text-based formats. Recognizing the many new ways to communi-

cate, police are warning the public against using text messages for emergencies. Wherever you are in North America, if you dial 911 the telephone system is going to direct your call to the closest 911 centre to you. There is not a universal text number for 911 so if you are to text it, it is not going to go anywhere. There is also no way for the caller to verify whether or not their text message has been received at a 911 centre and it is dangerous to assume that help is on the way when no voice contact has been made with an operator to confirm this.

RCMP issue warning about telemarketing phone solicitation tactics Separate reports are being received of suspicious phone soliciting in addition to aggressive and high pressure type phone soliciting in the Southeast District and other parts of the province. 

In one case, a Vernon resident was recently solicited by a female caller on the phone seeking donations via credit card for the “Cops for Kids” charity. The woman claimed to be having troubles with her computer and handed off the call to her male “boss” who was attempting to complete the transaction and advised the victim that the transaction would not appear on her credit card statement as “Cops for Kids”. It was at that point that the victim became suspicious and called police. The victim contacted her credit card security department and canceled her card immediately and no fraudulent transactions had taken place.

Most communities in the Southeast District are familiar with the Cops For Kids Charitable Foundation and the RCMP’s affiliation to it. The RCMP would like to remind the public that the RCMP and the Cops for Kids Charitable Foundation do not participate in any type of fundraising through “cold” phone

calls. Information on how to donate to can be reviewed online at anytime throughout the year by visiting www.copsforkids.org or on Facebook at www.facebook.com/groups/51960005969/ The Cops For Kids Charitable Foundation has advised the RCMP that they are fielding a high number of inquiries and complaints of aggressive and pressure tactic telemarketing but confirm that these calls are not coming from Cops for Kids, but in some cases from a telemarketing firm apparently acting on behalf of a program called “Cops for Kids Safety” that is stated to be affiliated with a police association unrelated to the RCMP.

The public should be advised that the RCMP does not engage in telephone solicitations of any kind to raise funds.

Police advise the public to be vigilant and to question those collecting funds for any cause. There are resources including the Better Business Bureau and the Canadian Radio-Telivision Telecommunications Commission (CRTC), that the public can utilize to verify legitimacy of any fund raising initiatives.

Tourism largest industry Almost New open for business For some, a dream job would be a vacation planner – for themselves! Vacationing in B.C. can take so many forms that it would indeed be a full-time job. The tourism and hospitality industry is an extremely diverse industry with over 400 different occupations – including occupations that lead to longer-term careers, as well as those that fit well for those seeking part-time work, like students or older workers who are not yet ready to retire. British Columbia’s tourism industry will be a leader in provincial job growth as businesses look to fill 101,000 new job openings by 2020, according to a study of labour demand and supply by go2, the BC tourism industry’s human resource association. The Tourism Labour Market Strategy, released in the spring of 2012 by go2, sets out the plan to recruit, retain and train the workers needed to keep pace with the growth projected for the industry. Nearly half of the 101,000 openings will be new jobs created by the tourism industry across the province, adding 44,220 more jobs to the provincial workforce by 2020. The other approximately 57,000 openings are due to replacements (i.e. retirements). “The labour strategy co-ordinated by go2 is a key pillar of industry growth in the province. Without it, we simply wouldn’t have the skilled

workers in place to deliver the visitor experience throughout BC,” says Lana Denoni, Chair of TIABC, the Tourism Industry Association of British Columbia. British Columbia’s location, bordered by the Rocky Mountains on the east and the Pacific Ocean on the west, makes it unique within Canada. Its mountain and coastal scenery, opportunities for summer sailing, winter skiing, and other activities such as fishing or sightseeing in coastal or inland waters or experiencing our vibrant cities all make us a world-class destination. Tourism helps to diversify our economy and also brings new community services to permanent residents. BC’s tourism and hospitality industry is now the single largest “primary resource industry” in the province, generating an annual real GDP ($2002) of more than $6.4 billion in 2010, ahead of forestry, mining, oil and gas extraction, and agriculture. Tourism and hospitality generated $13.4 billion in annual revenue in 2010. Overall, between 2004 and 2010, industry revenues grew by a total of 25.5 per cent, representing an average annual growth rate of 4.2 per cent.

A new small business has opened up on Vermilion Ave., in Princeton. It is a combined effort brought forth with the partnership of two local women, Maureen Jurovich and Doris McMullin. McMullin is the face of Almost New, she is the one who will greet you when you come through the door at 117B Vermilion. McMullin says she “knows what it is like to struggle.” So, her and her partner, spend a great deal of time looking for, locating and purchasing the items to sell in their second-hand store. Filling a need so people do not have to travel, providing quality items at affordable prices and supporting the community are qualities that are important to these two ladies. “Stop in and tell us if you have an interest outside of what we are providing,” said McMullin. The ladies want Almost New to offer shoppers a “little bit of everything.” Currently offered in the store are some antiques and a few vintage items. There are pieces of furniture such as; a couch, chair and dining room table set as well as a few other small furnishings. Almost New has a kitchenware section, home decorative items and collectibles, a baby section, clothing section for men, women and children as well as some bedding sets to enhance the look of your bedroom. If you are interested in sportswear, check out the skates in stock. The store also offers a few of the more delicate items such as; jewellery, bath salts and soaps. Almost New is not set up as a consignment store, the products offered for sale are purchased only by partners, Jurovich and McMullin. Almost New will be open six days a week. Drop by to see whats available and keep an eye out for the stock they plan on bringing in for Christmas.

On Thursday, Oct. 18, credit unions around the globe united to celebrate International Credit Union Day. To extend appreciation to their members, Valley First Credit Union Princeton branch celebrated by serving cake, cookies and coffee or tea. Members who visited the branch this day were invited to enter a draw for a gift basket as well. International Credit Union Day was initiated to celebrate the importance of credit unions and the integral role they play in community investment, both economically and socially. During 2011 and 2012, credit union employees donated approximately $11

million dollars and volunteered over 26,000 hours in support of charitable causes and organizations throughout British Columbia. In a press release issued last week, David Bushby, Valley First’s vice president of banking and insurance services stated that “Even in today’s changing economic times, our members know that we are committed to them and that we care about the communities we serve.” Since its creation in March 2010, Feed the Valley, Valley First’s signature cause, has raised more than $325,000 and and has collected over 19,000 pounds of food for food banks throughout the Okanagan, Similkameen and Thompson regions.

SpotlightNEWS THANKS - from page 1 under sections 85 and 88 of the Water Act and the British Columbia Dam Safety Regulations. Engineering studies were performed, a road built to the dam, rock and gravel trucked in, the dam removed and the road decommissioned. The 87 households are responsible for the cost, and the majority have or are in process of having wells drilled on their properties as well. Director Hope presented the Osprey Water Board with a cheque for $10,000 to help defray the cost of the engineering studies and the decommissioning of the dam. The grant will cover only a fraction of the cost, but the thought, support and money is very much appreciated. In a press release Rob Miller stated, “Brad was very helpful throughout the entire process.” Hayes Creek Fire Department - serving the Osprey, Link and Chain Lakes areas. The arrival time for an ambulance to these areas is about an hour from either Summerland or Princeton. With this situation, early medical intervention is critical. With a ratio of 80 percent medical calls and 20 percent fire calls, it is a blessing that the Hayes Creek Fire Department has 20 trained firefighters and medical first responders. The department is outfitted with a fire hall, two fire trucks and a medical first responder unit as well. The Hayes Creek Volunteer Fire Department serves approximately 200 paying member households at $50 per year. For the past two years the department has received no monetary support from the provincial government. Training, fuel, maintenance, utilities and equipment costs far exceed the monies brought in. However, the generosity and support they have received from Director Hope and the RDOS has allowed them to keep providing these essential services to their community. On Oct. 13, Director Hope on behalf of the RDOS presented a $2,500 check to Chief Rob Miller. The Hayes Creek Fire Department extends a big “thank you” to Director Hope and the RDOS as well as to their paying member households for the much appreciated continued support and to the dedicated volunteers who make it all possible.

PUBLIC NOTICE 2012 FLUSHING OF SEWER LINES The Town of Princeton will commence a sewer line flushing and video inspection program within the municipality starting the week of October 23rd, 2012. Periodic flushing is undertaken to prevent the buildup of sediment which may result in blockages. This work will take approximately two (2) weeks to complete. Sewer line flushing may result in some splashing from the toilet if the sewer system in your building is not adequately vented. To avoid any inconvenience, it is suggested that you place your toilet lid in the down position, with a garbage bag or piece of plastic placed beneath it. The 2012 flushing program will affect the following areas: Downtown

SpotlightOPINION Think about the food chain Staff Writer Black Press

The massive and unprecedented recall of beef that emerged from a Brooks, Alta., processing plant should cause people to pause and think about the food chain, and how demands for low consumer prices may have a long-term effect that goes far beyond this recall. The way that meat goes from farm to the table has changed dramatically in the past 50 years. There used to be many more slaughterhouses or killing plants than there are today. There were several in B.C., including what was once called Pacific Meats and later Intercontinental Packers, in south Vancouver. There were also many small slaughterhouses. B.C. farmers and ranchers produce a large supply of cattle for the meat market each year. But for the most part, they are now shipped off to huge feed lots on the prairies for a final fattening up before being butchered. A few farmers and ranchers raise some cattle to full size and sell meat to customers or specialty butcher shops directly. In virtually all cases, this meat is more expensive—but it comes with the assurance that the final consumer knows just where the meat originated and how it has been handled. Almost every large grocery retailer buys beef from a handful of huge plants, such as the Brooks facility. It has been estimated that up to 40 per cent of the beef sold in B.C. comes from that plant. That’s why the recall list is such a long one. Grocery chains today have to offer low prices to get customers in the door, and meat prices are among the most closely-watched. A push for low prices and efficiencies isn’t a bad thing, but it should never be at the expense of good health. Hopefully, out of all this will come a demand by meat eaters for better information about the food they eat.

Similkameen Spotlight October 24, 2012

Have you ever seen a poor politician? Dear Editor;

Folks, we might as well say that the Northern Pipeline is already a done deal, all that is left is the signing. What I am basing my opinion on is the actions of Mr. Harper, our Prime Minister. Mr. Harper has let out a sly indication lately of a Free Trade Deal with China followed by a controversial announcement of the Northern Pipeline from Alberta to Kitimat, B.C. Then came the announcement of the proposed oil refinery to be built in Kitimat, followed by China wanting to buy into our Tar-sands. To further examine into the issue it becomes crystal clear that all B.C.,

needs to approve the project is more money in their pockets. Now it becomes transparent also from the double-talk our politicians are spouting that the Canadian population who own the Black Gold Mine are getting the shaft once again as they have in the past. I don’t claim to be a smart person, but too many deficit budgets in our recent history tells me not to trust our various governments promises—all they seem to be able to do is mislead the public anyway. Last but least, has anyone ever met a poor politician? I myself have never seen or met one! Yukon Eric Holopainen Princeton, BC

Dear Editor; RE: Country Side Inn I would like to thank the management for the wonderful stay that my elderly parents experienced. They were treated well and comfortable. Thoroughly enjoyed their continental breakfast, as well as what was available for dinner. They also enjoyed the company of the other guests in the common room. Thank you guys!! Regards G. Longstaff, per Bob & Pat Cureton Ontario

Beats trying to walk on water Dear Editor, Premier Christy Clark and Opposition leader Adrian Dix and P.M. Harper should lovingly embrace one another and immediately begin constructing a tunnel-

bridge from the Lower Mainland to Vancouver Island. At least there’d be something in 50 years. Beats trying to walk on water. Joe Schwarz, Penticton B.C.

Vancouver Coastal Health Nurse Practitioner, Elizabeth Leonardis, gives BC Lung Association Volunteer Director Marilyn Lawrence of Princeton her annual flu shot.

Get Your Vaccine, Not the Flu Says the BC Lung Association Mid-October through November is the best time for immunization. It’s important to get your vaccine early because the flu vaccine becomes effective about two weeks after it’s administered, once the body generates antibodies to protect against the flu. The vaccine provides protection for up to 12 months. Everyone six months and older is recommended to get a flu vaccine. A flu vaccine offers the best defence available to protect against flu. The Association also suggests those over 65 years of age get a pneumonia shot as well.   Anyone can get the flu, but some people are at greater risk for serious flu-related complications, like pneumonia, that can lead to hospitalization and even death. This includes adults 65 years and older. This is because the body’s ability to fight illness drops as you age.  Over a normal flu season, one in 10 adults and one in 3 children will come down with the flu. According to the Public Health Agency, between 2,000 and 8,000 people will die from pneumonia and other flu-related complications.  High risk groups The Lung Association and health officials suggest everyone should get the shot, but especially seniors 65 years or older, residents of care homes, children under five, people with chronic illness, pregnant women, individuals of aboriginal ancestry and people who are severely overweight or obese. Care-givers and healthcare givers are also urged to get their shot. Where to get vaccinated? See your doctor or pharmacist or visit www.bc.lung. ca for information about BC flu shot clinic locations.

Marking a period of Remebrance honours the Past, the Present and the Future Dear Editor; Once again Remembrance Day will soon be upon us. A time for Canadians of all ages to remember the more than one hundred thousand fellow citizens who fought, bled and died protecting our freedoms along with the countless others who have served our country. Remembrance Day should not only be reserved to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice. It should also be a practical remembrance of the living – the disabled Veterans, RCMP members, widows, widowers, orphans and family members of those who served and are in need of a helping hand. Members of the Royal Canadian Legion are, as one of their core responsibilities, the Guardians of Remembrance. The Poppy Campaign organized by the Legion, in conjunction with Remembrance Day, helps alleviate suffering and addresses the needs of Veterans and their families who may not have the financial wherewithal for basic necessities. The Legion assists with purchasing medical equipment, awarding bursaries for needy students, providing support services such as meals-on-wheels and drop-in centres and helping with some basic residential repairs to name but a few. So much of the Legion’s work in our communities goes unnoticed. Every day this organization of more than

330,000 people makes significant contributions, not only to enhance the lives of Veterans, but also for seniors, Cadets, Scouts, Guides, as well as serving members of the Canadian Forces and RCMP and their families. The Legion remains fiercely proud to be Canada’s largest Veterans services organization. Our advocacy work on behalf of all who have served in the Canadian Forces and RCMP ensures that they receive life-long support and recognition for their service to this country. Thanks to their desire to give back, the Legion was created and continues to this day to support our communities in countless ways. The Royal Canadian Legion’s Poppy Campaign provides everyone with the opportunity for practical remembrance and it is hoped that this year, with the recent conflicts in Afghanistan and Libya as with our aging Second World War and Korean Veterans, more Canadians will wear the Poppy than ever before. There’s more to the Legion than you might think. We Care! Find out today how you can get involved by visiting your local Legion branch…because you care; because you can. Lest We Forget, Gordon Moore Dominion President The Royal Canadian Legion

St. Peter’s Parish - meet Father Harry Clarke Lisa Carleton lisa@similkameenspotlight.com

St. Peter’s Roman Catholic Parish in Princeton has a long history within the community. The very first priests here were Monks who became Catholics. They wanted a monastery here—were taken in and remained a part of the Archdiocese of Vancouver for quite some time. Since the 1930s St. Peter’s Parish has had a continuous presence within the community. Meet Father Harry Clarke. Father Clarke came from Castlegar to make his home at the Parish in Princeton, this past August. He is serving the communities of Princeton and area, Hedley (St. Ann’s) and Keremeos. (Our Lady of Lourdes) He is enjoying learning about the history of the church and of the communities in each of the areas he serves. Father Clarke joined the priesthood 45 years ago. He grew up in the west of Ireland and is grateful to have grown up within that culture. It placed within him deep questions about God, life and death. “It’s the greatest adventure of all—really,” he said, “I have pursued it all my life and it continues to fascinate me.” Father Clarke believes that people are very precious. Many have never really connected with their religious affiliations and he feels that it is especially important that children are encour-

High school apprenticeship

Sunday, October 28th

Lisa Carleton lisa@similkameenspotlight.com

starting at

When your child enters high school, you expect that he/she will gain and retain knowledge and skills to assist in preparing them for the world of adulthood. At Princeton Secondary School, teachers are committed to providing students with as many opportunities as they can to enable the students to become prepared. One such opportunity is the Secondary School Apprenticeship Program. (SSA) With the high demand of trade’s people and a prediction that this demand will grow, Career Development Programs are being used to connect school based learning with work place experiences. While completing secondary school requirements, students 15 years or older can be registered as an apprentice in any apprenticeable occupation. The SSA programs are designed to prepare students to attain their educational and occupational objectives, as well as assist them in developing effective work habits and flexibility to deal with the change in school and workplace. Besides giving students hands on experience, the SSA programs offer direct education in a field the student is interested in, advanced standing in many colleges; they can by-pass entry level courses and move directly into their first year and students are eligible to receive a $1000 Scholarship. (Based on continuation of apprenticeship training and a C+ or higher standing on all grade 12 courses.) Colton Callihoo is a grade 12 student at Princeton Secondary who is taking advantage of the SSA program. Callihoo had been taking cooking class with teacher, Shane O’Malley for quite some time. He realized that he absolutely enjoyed cooking. “I have learned a lot from Mr. O’Malley,� said Callihoo. Cooking in class eventually lead to cooking at home. “I find cooking exciting, interesting and it’s something that keeps me calm,� he said. The realization of what cooking brought to his life made Callihoo aware of what he wanted for his future. This year he made the decision to further his education in the Culinary Arts and went to speak with Mr. John Kitts, work experience teacher. Mr. Kitts approached Thomasina and Jerome of Thomasina’s, the local shoppe famous for it’s artisan breads, healthy lunches, teas and a varieties of cream scones, welsh cakes and more. Thomasina is a certified Professional Cook 3. (the highest level) She and husband Jerome are pleased to take part in the SSA program. “It’s a way to give back to Princeton,� Thomasina said, “a new move in education to help kids develop— it’s great.� After two interviews and an apprenticeship outline meeting, Colton began at Thomasina’s and has been working for them for almost six months.

SpotlightLIFESTYLES

The new Canadian Christmas tradition As the Christmas Holiday approaches, the giant factories are kicking into high gear to provide Canadians with monstrous piles of cheaply produced goods - merchandise that has been produced at the expense of Canadian labour. This year will be different. This year let’s give the gift of genuine concern for other Canadians. There is no longer the excuse that, at gift giving time, nothing can be found that is produced by Canadian hands. 
It’s time to think outside the box. Who says a gift needs to fit in a box, wrapped in non-Canadian produced wrapping paper? Everyone, yes everyone, gets their hair cut. How about a gift certificate from your local hair salon or barber? Gym membership? It’s appropriate for all ages who are thinking about some health improvement. Who wouldn’t appreciate getting their car detailed? Small locally owned detail shops and car washes would love to sell you a gift certificate or a book of gift certificates.

Perhaps that grateful gift receiver would like his driveway sealed, or lawn mowed for the summer, or driveway ploughed all winter, or games at the local golf course. There are a number of owner-run restaurants—all offering gift certificates. And, if your intended isn’t the fancy eatery sort, what about a half dozen breakfasts or lunches? Remember folks, this is about supporting Princeton’s local busi-

nesses. 
How many people couldn’t use an oil change for their vehicle, done at a shop run by the local working guy? Thinking about a heartfelt gift for mom? Mom would love the services of a local cleaning lady for a day, a week, month or even all year.

OK, you were looking for something more personal. Local crafts people have a huge variety of gifts, they make clothing, jewellery, pottery and beautiful wooden boxes. The local artists have a large selection of excellent art for sale at the Gallery.
 And, how about going out to see a play by Princeton Performing Arts, or buy tickets for the upcoming Arts Council events. Musicians need love too, so find a venue showcasing our great local bands. You see, Christmas is now about caring about us, encouraging local small businesses to keep plugging away to follow their dreams. When we care about Princeton, we care about other Canadians, and the benefits come back to us in ways we couldn’t imagine. This is the new Canadian Christmas tradition. During Christmas Light-up on November 30, Home Based Businesses will be featured in the Legion Hall. This will give you an opportunity to see what some of our home based businesses have to offer. Have a merry and blessed Christmas supporting Princeton and made in Canada—work by Canadians.

Princeton Museum~treasures abound

The Princeton and District Museum and Archives is proud to announce the most recent addition to its collection. Brian Kennelly of Quesnel, presented the Museum with original mining record books that predated the discovery of Granite Creek in 1885. Brian’s father, Brendan Kennelly, was Government Agent/Gold Commissioner/Mining Recorder in Princeton from 1953 to about 1972. At the time he held his position, there wasn’t a proper and secure place to store these valuable records so Mr. Kennelly decided to keep them in his possession. After his passing, the records went to his son, Brian. On a recent visit to the Princeton and District Museum and Archives, Brian decided that it was time the books he had so carefully looked after were brought back home to Princeton. The hand-written records list mining claim transactions, free miner numbers and descriptions of various claims in the Granite Creek area. Of significant importance is the very first claim – the Discovery Claim by Johnny Chance, William Jenkins, Thomas Curry and E.M. Allison – on Granite Creek in 1885. The records appear to be relatively complete except for one month which is missing in 1886.  Brian Kennelly also donated a 40 page book of hand-written court records of decisions mostly pertaining to small claims court and mining infractions including some recorded at Granite Creek on June 16, 1886. Bound copies of the Government Gazettes for 1914 and 1915 were also given to the Museum. So what can be gleaned from these 127 year old records? We can learn the names and numbers of all the miners (including the elusive Chinese miners) from the early Granite Creek days, their claims, company and stakeholders’ names, location of claims and money that changed hands. We can also learn the original

names of some of the streams and creeks in the area. With this information new maps can be created to accurately illustrate where all the original Granite Creek mines were. These valuable books will allow us to glimpse back into the past and learn more about the rich mining history of the Granite Creek area. In order to prevent further deterioration, volunteers will carefully transcribe all the records into a database which will eventually be available to researchers and families interested in the history of Granite Creek. The Princeton Museum and Archives would like to thank Brian Kennelly for his exciting donation and for preserving this piece of our valley’s history. It is donations such as these that make volunteering at the Museum so exhilarating. We never know what artefact will come through the doors of the Princeton and District Museum and Archives next.  Perhaps you have a forgotten treasure in your home.  

We’re currently building a new, bigger Ronald McDonald House® BC next to BC Children’s Hospital. Once completed, the House will keep thousands more families together as their children receive treatment at the hospital. This House is our chance to surround more sick children with the love and support of their parents and siblings.

Copper Mountain announces results for third quarter During the third quarter of 2012 the mine completed a total of three shipments of copper concentrate, to smelters in Japan, containing approximately 12.1 million pounds of copper, 3,400 ounces of gold, and 81,800 ounces of silver.  Gross sale value, based on provisional pricing is estimated at $48.3 million prior to pricing adjustments. Production from the mill during the quarter was 12.5 million pounds of copper, 4,315 ounces of gold, and 77,166 ounces of silver, the higher gold content is the result of increased ore from Pit #2.  As previously announced on September 17th   the ramp up to full production has taken longer than expected. Mill operating time was negatively impacted during the third quarter due to SAG mill grate replacements and extensive tailings line maintenance, both of which are now complete.  Following the planned mill maintenance shutdown at the start of August; whereby the recently received newly designed grates were installed in the SAG mill, and electrical modification to the ball mill motors were made, as well as repairs to the tailings line, unscheduled downtime has been decreased providing confidence that the mill can operate at the planned 92 percent availability.

Subsequent to the planned maintenance shut down in early August, the Company has attained design mill throughput. From a mining point of view, the addition of the extra mining equipment announced earlier this year has assisted in increasing the mining capacity and has also allowed flexibility in mine planning. Mining in Pit 2 has been accelerated to be developed in parallel with Pit 3, as part of the new mine optimization plan. Mine production is continuing above the planned rate of 160,000 tpd. In addition, during the quarter the Company continued with its 2012 exploration program which forms the first part of a larger three year exploration strategy for the property. The objectives of the exploration program are threefold: determination of the potential long-term pit limits, conversion of resources to reserves in order to assist with near to mid-term mine planning and continued exploration of outlying or new areas of mineralization. There are currently two diamond drills on the property which are focused on mineralization at depth in the southern end of Pit 3 and around Pit 2.  Results will continue to be released as drilling progresses.

Whole-wheat vegetable quiche NUMBER OF SERVINGS: 4 Ideal for Sunday brunch, this quiche is prepared in 20 minutes and cooked in the microwave. Ingredients: • 180 ml (3/4 cup) whole-wheat flour • 60 ml (1/4 cup) bran • 60 ml (1/4 cup) margarine • 30 ml (2 tbsp) cold water • 1 small red pepper, cored, seeded and diced • 120 g (4 oz) zucchini, diced • 2 scallions, trimmed and finely sliced • 1 tomato, skinned and chopped • 2 eggs • 15 ml (1 tbsp) skimmed milk • Salt

CAPRICORN: Capricorn, a large purchase has been on your mind, but until now you may not have been able to do anything about it. Put out feelers and test the water in the next few days. AQUARIUS: Plenty of opportunities for social gatherings arise now that you have made a few new friends, Aquarius. Show them you’re always willing to have a good time. PISCES: You don’t have to share every detail to be an honest person, Pisces. It is sometimes advantageous to keep some things personal. ARIES: Aries, do not be discouraged if a few things do not go right for you this week. Most people learn from their mistakes or challenges, and you will find a silver lining in this. TAURUS: Taurus, reflect on special times in your life because they can bring happiness. Whenever you feel a tad stressed this week, think positively and know that this, too, shall pass. GEMINI: Gemini, you may be a party animal this week if the social opportunities arise. Just keep your head at all times and remember to celebrate in a responsible way. CANCER: Cancer, many ideas are floating through your head, but nothing will come to fruition unless you write something down and start some action. LEO: Leo, when you have doubts about making purchases or splurging financially, trust your gut instinct and you will be alright. You will have a good meeting on Tuesday. VIRGO: Virgo, it can be hard to concentrate when you are being pulled in so many directions. You need to designate special times to handle all tasks so you can stay organized. LIBRA: Sometimes taking a risk is necessary to get ahead, Libra. Now is not the time to take risks, however, Play it very conservatively for the next few weeks and then rethink your options. SCORPIO: Just when you seem to be coasting along successfully, a few minor bumps may spring up, Scorpio. They won’t be enough to derail your plans, however. SAGITTARIUS: Sagittarius, there will be plenty of times for laughter this week, as you seem to cause giggles everywhere you go. It feels good to boost people’s spirits. FOR ENTERTAINMENT ONLY

• Pepper Directions: Put the flour and bran in a bowl and rub in the margarine. Add the water and mix to form a wet dough. Put into a 15 cm (6 inch) shallow dish and press out to form a pie case. Cook uncovered for 4 minutes in the microwave, on high, turning the dish every minute. Set aside. Put the diced pepper in a bowl, cover and cook for 2 minutes on high. Add the zucchini and onions, then cover

and cook for 3 minutes on high. Spread the cooked vegetables and the tomato in the base of the pastry case. Beat the eggs and milk together thoroughly and season with salt and pepper, pour over the vegetables and cook uncovered for 12-14 minutes on low, or until set. Give the dish a turn occasionally during cooking. Serve hot or cold. Recipe and photo : The Complete Microwave Cookbook, Judith Ferguson, Collins Royal.

We would like to thank all our friends and neighbours in Princeton for their kind words and support after the recent loss of both our parents, Bert & Grace Lawrence. Special thanks to Dr. Adams and the nurses at Princeton Hospital for their care and compassion. We are very grateful to Community Services and the home support workers for their warm and friendly ways while assisting our parents over the years. Mom & Dad always said that Princeton was a great place to live. We’d like to add that it’s because of the wonderful people here. The Lawrence Family
