Kars Under the “K” donate shop tools to SESS By Steve Arstad news@keremeosreview.com Kars Under the “K” presented Similkameen Elementary Secondary School shop instructors Boyd Turnbull and Tom Owen and the shop students with a $1,500

Miller portable plasma cutting system. KMS Tools representative Brian Kohlman delivered the tool on October 30. The wood shop at the school has constructed a cabinet to store all the tools the “Kars” organization has donated to them over the years .

Attorney General Shirley Bond presented local resident Ron Shonk with the Ministry of Justice 2012 “Crime Prevention and Community Safety Award – Individual” on November 2 as part of Crime Prevention Week, November 1 to 7. Awards are presented to individuals, agencies and programs in several categories. Nominations are submitted by peers throughout the province. They are reviewed by representatives from the provincial Safe Communities Working Group, and the recipients are then honoured at the annual BC Crime Prevention Association Symposium, held this year in Burnaby. “The recipients of these awards have demonstrated how commitment, perseverance, and innovation in crime prevention efforts can help make communities in British Columbia safer,” Bond said. “These awards also remind us that we all have a role to play in helping to build safe communities where families can thrive.” In addition to his lead role in creating PVPP, the Lower Similkameen’s Proactive Violence Prevention Project – endorsed by over 30 local agencies, organizations, and businesses – Ron was also cited for his creative work and cooperative spirit with and among community agencies throughout the south Okanagan and Similkameen. He is employed by Lower Similkameen Community Services as RCMP Victim Services Coordinator, in Keremeos.

Keremeos VFD battle early morning blaze By Steve Arstad news@keremeosreview.com Keremeos Volunteer Fire Department responded to an early morning fire in Keremeos on October 31that gutted a building at 300 Second Avenue. Firefighters responded to the scene just after five a.m. Smoke and flames were emanating from a side door as well as from in between twin garage doors at the front of the residence. Keremeos Chief Jordy Bosscha said the fire proved to be difficult to fight. “The interior of the building was fully involved when we arrived, and the discovery of a large propane tank

that was already venting in the basement also cause a few anxious moments,” Bosscha said. Firefighters were also unable to gain access to the upper floor of the residence because the fire had completely burned the interior first floor. Thirteen firefighters responded to the blaze, which was also attended by members of the Keremeos RCMP, and B.C. Ambulance service. It is believed that the fire was started by a faulty space heater, which the owner said had been operating in the basement. The building was unoccupied and up for sale at the time.

A formal ceremony at the SPCA pet cemetery on Partington Road near Kaleden last Friday saw 56 Whistler sled dogs interred at the site.

Formal ceremony helps bring closure to sled dog cull By Steve Arstad news@keremeosreview.com On Friday, November 2, members of the BC Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals interred the Whistler sled dogs at the BC SPCA pet cemetary on Partington Road, just off White Lake Road near Kaleden. The formal ceremony was attended by dozens of animal lovers, many of whom wept openly during the proceedings, which included an introduction by Chief Executive Officer Craig Daniell, and dedications by Marylee Davis, BC SPCA President and Marcie Moriarty, Chief Prevention and Enforcement Officer. Many of the those attending brought their

own pets. BC SPCA officials held the ceremony to bring closure after international condemnation of the April 2010 slaughter of animals belonging to Whistler-based Howling Dog Tours. The killing sparked a massive SPCA investigation after it came to light the following year, ending with one Criminal Code charge laid in April 2011 against former Howling Dog manager, Bob Fawcett, who will be sentenced later this month after pleading guilty in August to causing unnecessary pain and suffering to an animal. Anti-cruelty laws were also revised by the province to provide tough new protection for sled dogs, including fines of up to $75,000 and two years behind bars for violators.

Highly visible police presence raises public curiousity By Steve Arstad The Review If you thought you were seeing police everywhere last Tuesday, you were right. Keremeos RCMP had received numerous complaints through October of trucks using their gears to slow down when traveling on roads in the Keremeos area. The Commercial Vehicle Inspection team made an appearance in the Keremeos area for a few days early last week to enforce regulations on commercial trucks. On Saturday October 7, South Okanagan Highway Patrol, the Integrated Road Safety Unit and Keremeos RCMP conducted a road safety blitz in Keremeos which resulted in numerous motor vehicle act violations including: - four impaired drivers - one no insurance - one no drivers licence - three speeding offences - one no seatbelt - 25 other minor motor vehicle act offences Keremeos RCMP are reminding residents that as the Christmas season is fast approaching to make plans for a designated driver if your planning to consume alcohol. Keremeos RCMP were called to Olalla on Tuesday, October 2, at approximately 5:45 p.m., to investi-

gate a cougar sighting. The cougar was observed walking along Sixth Street with what appeared to be a domestic cat in its mouth. The cougar proceeded towards the mountain but then returned several minutes later. Keremeos RCMP attended the location, however the cougar could not be located. Detachment Commander Mike Gallagher passes on the following information regarding cougar interactions with humans: Roaming pets are easy prey for cougars, keep them leashed or behind a fence. Children playing outdoors should play ingroups. Children shouldn’t be left unsupervised. The following are guidelines in the event that you do encounter a cougar: Stay calm and keep the cougar in view. Pick up children immediately - children frighten easily, the noise and movements they make could provoke an attack. Back away slowly, ensuring that the animal has a clear avenue of escape. Make yourself look as large as possible. Keep the cougar in front of you at all times.

RDOS Chief Adminstrative Officer Bill Newell addresses attendees at an Olalla town hall meeting held at the Elks Hall in Keremeos on Saturday, November 3.

& CUSTOMER APPRECIATION

Meeting discussion centres on water quality improvements Silver Scissors Water treatment options discussed during calm gathering of interested residents By Steve Arstad news@keremeosreview.com It was a smaller and quieter audience that met with regional district officials at an Olalla town hall meeting held at the Elk’s Hall in Keremeos on Saturday, November 3. Chief Adminstrative Officer Bill Newell made a presentation explaining regional district governance, outlining the board’s voting procedures, the RDOS’ financing obligations and restrictions with respect to how tax money is collected and spent. “It is a complex system of government,” Newell admitted, assuring the 25 or so residents present that “ your elected representative (Area “G” Director Angelique Wood) will figure out how to get your issues through the system.” The Olalla Water Advisory Board was announced during the meeting, consisting of Stan Bobowski, Bev Fraser, Evin Hartfield and John Havlik. RDOS Public Works Manager Doug French

discussed secondary water treatment options available to Olalla residents. The four options presented were costed as follows: - UV system ($120) - Chemical disinfection ($160) - New well ($100) - $100,000 improvement ($40) The costs reflected in brackets above would be annual increases to residents water bills. The UV treatment option was presented and discussed as the most desireable method of treating Olalla water in order to eliminate further “boil water” advisories. Other discussion arose surrounding the annual flooding issues surrounding Keremeos Creek in the Olalla area. Bear Aware Coordinator for the RDOS, Zoe Kirk was also on hand with a Bear Aware display. She was also handing out numerous water conservation items provided by Fortis BC and partners. Low flow shower heads, aerating faucet attachments and shower timers continue to be available from Zoe by calling 250-492-0237 or 250-492-4110. Joe Littlefield concluded the meeting with a slide show presentation put together by the “Friends of Olalla” committee.

Regional district news briefs By Steve Arstad news@keremeosreview.com Kaleden - Okanagan Falls trail surfacing The Request For Proposals for surfacing of the KVR trail between Kaleden and Okanagan Falls ended on October 4, reported RDOS Community Services Manager Mark Woods to regional district directors at a recent board meeting. A granular surface similar to the Penticton portion of the trail is envisioned for the Kaleden - Okanagan Falls portion, having received the best choice of material from public response. The trail will be surfaced between the trestle at Okanagan Falls and Ponderosa Point initially. Woods also told the board that work on access to the trail between Penticton (to Airport Road) and Kaleden was ongoing. Permission granted In the Similkameen, the Keremeos to Cawston portion of the trail has received formal approval for use from the Agricultural Land Commission.

Transit study Terms of Reference Terms of reference for an upcoming regional transit study were recently released. The Similkameen and South Okanagan transportation study will start November 1 and is slated for spring completion. New services derived from the study are expected to be implemented by mid fall of 2013. New employees Community Services Manager Mark Woods introduced two new staff members to the regional district board on October 4. Justin Shuttleworth will serve as Parks Facilities Coordinator and Lindsay Bourque was hired as Rural Projects Coordinator. Grist Mill The province’s heritage branch wishes to explore new ideas for operating the Keremeos Grist Mill. A recently released Expression of Interest is seeking proposals that would see the community more involved in site useage. Two ideas that have been suggested include creation of a cidery or a brew house on the grounds, but the jury is still out with respect to potential new opportunities.

opinion

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

Editorial Liberal candidate is a Similkameen ally The B.C. Liberal party recently nominated present Mayor of Penticton / Regional District Okanagan - Similkameen Chair Dan Ashton to be the party’s candidate in the Penticton riding. Ashton won the four way contest between himself, Summerland Mayor Janice Perrino, Penticton businessman Mark Ziebarth and past president of the BC School Trustees Connie Denesiuk on October 20. The party’s selection was undoubtably a difficult one to make, given the high calibre of candidates listed above. We are comfortable with the choice they made, however, based on Ashton’s track record in the region. As a regional politician, Ashton has probably maintained the highest profile of any regional politician for being accessible to Similkameen residents. He has a history of making himself available to Similkameen events that is worthy of note. As an example, one could look at last week’s Olalla town hall meeting, held at 11a.m. on Saturday at the Elks Hall in Keremeos. Even though he was not an official part of the proceeding, Ashton took the time to be there, making himself available to the public and regional district staff who were conducting the meeting. He was also present at the last Olalla town hall meeting in September, a more spirited affair that, incidentally, was attended by double the number of residents that were present at Saturday’s meeting. Should Ashton be elected next spring, he won’t be representing the Similkameen in Victoria. It’s good to know, nonetheless, that we’ll have at least two representatives in the provincial capital that have done their homework, and have a good working knowledge of what the Similkameen and its residents are all about.

B.C.’s Community Forests - Part one By Alex Atamanenko MP, B.C. Southern Interior B.C.’s forest based communities are facing dramatic changes due to a range of ecological and economic factors. Rural communities and First Nations are looking for alternatives that will help stabilize their local economies and provide long-term employment opportunities. An increasing number of these see community forests as way to meet many of the challenges they face. At its core, community forestry is about local control over, and enjoyment of, the benefits offered by local forest resources on crown land. Community Forest Agreements are managed by local governments, First Nations, not-for-profit societies and cooperative organizations interested in the environmental, social and economic health of their community. A Community Forest Agreement allows com-

munities to determine the values and objectives for management of the land surrounding their communities, the methods to achieve those objectives and the benefits that derive from management. The forest tenure in turn leverages unique opportunities for community economic development and diversification. The benefits of community forestry vary from community to community as they each identify their own values and priorities. For example, one rural mountain community has identified water protection as their highest priority, while a First Nation community forest sees education and long term employment of band members as their key priorities. With community forests typically located in the land surrounding a community, interface planning and fuel management to reduce risk of wildfires is often a management priority. Province-wide, there are

47 operating Community Forest Agreements and an additional eleven communities and First Nations in the application process. While the program has grown significantly, the combined annual harvest represents only 1.5 per cent of the provincial total. To put this in perspective, one company holds licenses for an annual harvest of 2.7 million cubic metres in the Prince George area alone. This is almost double the total amount allocated to the Community Forest Program. The Legislative Assembly of B.C.’s Special Committee on Timber Supply is considering ways to address the pine beetle epidemic related loss of timber supply in the Central Interior. These recommendations are to be examined with due regard to maintaining high environmental standards, protection of critical habitat and key environmental values for the optimal health of communities in an orderly a transition as possible.

The committee has asked some fundamental questions including: “How do we support communities with a falling timber supply? How do we do more with less? Can area based tenures help mitigate this issue?” Despite their small footprint, community forests have shown they can provide a range of benefits to communities, First Nations, and the province as whole. They are a valuable tool to help communities to become more resilient and self-reliant. By increasing the size of existing community forests and making more of these tenures available to additional communities, the contributions of community forests can be much greater. The British Columbia Community Forest Association (BCCFA) is a network of community-based organizations in B.C. that manage community forests or are striving to establish community forests.

Display of poppy should be personal choice To the Editor: At this time of year news anchors, politicians, public officials and much of the general public have donned the poppy. I have worn a poppy as a symbol of remembrance for those who died serving our nation amidst our many armed conflicts. One time, the little red flower slipped off the jacket I was wearing One of my work colleagues noticed, asking why I was not wearing a poppy. I had not noticed it was missing. What if people made a conscious decision not to wear one? Would it bother you? Do you feel it is disrespectful not to wear a red poppy? What about the white poppy? The British Women’s Co-operative Guild introduced it in 1933. In Canada, many who have adopted the white poppy tradition are uncomfortable with the conventional Remembrance Day focus on remembering only “our” soldiers. They feel it is important to remember others who suffer in war, especially now,

when most casualties are civilians. I would like to think that there was room on Remembrance Day to remember the sacrifices of soldiers and inspire a more peaceful future. I certainly do not think wearing a white poppy is any disrespect to veterans. The Royal Canadian Legion has been vocal in its opposition to the white poppy. They see it as an invasion of trademark. They argue that the traditional poppy holds a deep symbolic meaning for the average Canadian, and should not be modified in any way to promote a different cause. The red poppies are a significant fundraiser for the legion. The competition is not welcome. You can fashion your own simple white poppy if you like. I got my white poppies from The Voice of Women in Vancouver at 604-437-4453. In my Canada, I feel free to wear either a red poppy or a white poppy or both. Dave Cursons, Cawston

China free trade agreement a threat to sovereignty To the Editor: re: The Canada-China Foreign Investment Protection Agreement In one week PM Harper could commit Canada to the most sweeping trade deal in a generation without a single debate or vote. If the Canada-China FIPA passes, it will pave the way for China’s massive companies to spend billions buying-out Canada’s natural resource companies. Under FIPA, China’s companies can sue Canadian governments, federal, provincial or municipal, in secret tribunals outside the Canadian court system if those governments do anything that would limit the companies’ profits in Canada. The FIPA would tie our hands for 31 years, making it possible for China’s companies to challenge Canadian laws that create jobs, protect our environment and build healthy communities with billion-dollar lawsuits that

would cost taxpayers dearly. Canada has already spent hundreds of millions on penalties from lawsuits launched under the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), and right now Belgium is facing a $3 billion suit from one of China’s companies because of a similar foreign investor agreement. Why would Prime Minister Harper lock us into this secretive and extreme deal? It’s short terms gains for long-term pain, and Canadians and Chinese alike have a right to a say in the decisions that will shape our lives. If you are concerned about this, please quickly spread the word and contact your member of Parliament. Contact: www.daninottawa.com MP Dan Albas Karen Findlay, Keremeos

Free trade agreement with China will leave us vulnerable To the Editor: As you can see I’m sending this letter to many newspapers because I am very worried about the deal that our Prime Minister is signing with China. It’s not China I’m worried about, it’s our P.M. I do not trust that he will keep Canada’s interest at heart. Dear Member of Parliament: I understand you are a member of The Standing Committee on International Trade. I am greatly disturbed by the imminent signing of a trade deal with China that will stay in effect for 31 years and cannot be changed for 15 years, even though we may have been left vulnerable as a sovereign country. Because of NAFTA we have been sued

by companies for a potential loss of profits. Even when we won the case, as in the softwood lumber dispute, we didn’t have the teeth to collect what we were owed. I’m urging you to allow our elected MPs in the House of Commons to discuss and scrutinize this trade deal to ensure that we will still be able to enact laws that protect our own citizens and that we have reciprocity. China is a huge country that’s on the move and I don’t think that other countries have the same interest in our sovereignty as we do, therefore the more people who scrutinize this deal the better. I do hope you will keep Canada’s sovereignty in mind when you discuss this huge deal and its implications. Sincerely, Donna Stocker, Cawston

Independent consultant not necessarily without bias To the Editor, I felt compelled to write when I saw the editorial regarding the Keremeos core services review. While these reviews are often marketed as neutral third party reviews this is far from the truth. For example, the company KPMG (which is involved in core service reviews in Prince George and Vernon) is a sponsor member of the Canadian Council for Public Private Partnerships. I find it hard to believe that this company would not have a bias for privatization. Instead of looking outwards and paying tens of thousands of dollars for a consultant to come

in and review municipal services, we should be looking to our own employees, managers and citizens. Keremeos has excellent, qualified, competent employees who could provide insight on how the Village could run better. CUPE municipal workers support internal evaluations, including evalu ations of contracted out services, in order to achieve efficiencies and improved services. In addition to the cost of the review taxpayers will also be on the hook for the hours of work the employees must dedicate to continued on page 17

Thank you to all of the branch members who have done so much to support the medical staff, patients and their families at Penticton Regional Hospital. They are local heroes!

OK Falls Legion celebrates 65 years By Steve Arstad news@keremeosreview.com On November 9 Okanagan Falls Legion #227 is celebrating their 65th Anniversary. The branch first received their charter November 12, 1947. Fifteen veterans were charter members and their meetings were held in the local hardware store and then in the Womens Institure Hall. As membership grew property was purchased in 1951 close to the south end of Skaha Lake beach where a building was erected, mainly by members and volunteer labor. For a number of years the new branch endured some financially bad years but held auctions, prizes and dances to raise funds. In 1963 this building was sold and a new hall erected on lots offered by the first President Bill Edge. Assisted by a grant from the B.C. government a two story building was added and officially opened in 1972. The hall boasts a sports floor, with the second floor used for meetings and social events, then there is the lounge operated entirely by volunteers. The branch now has a membership of approximately 520.

Activities include meat draws every Friday and Saturday, pancake breakfasts, entertainment by well-known local bands, suppers, cribbage, shuffleboard, darts, pool, golf matches and any other activity the membership wishes. Every Sunday afternoon there is horse racing and other entertainment. The ladies Auxiliary received its charter in 1948 with 20 members and now has a membership of 44. The auxiliary has always supported the branch, both financially and in all branch activities and events. Both the branch and the LA support youth in the community with donations, bursaries, youth sport activities, local hospitals and veteran hospitals. Funds are obtained from meat draws, LA catering and bingos. For our 60th anniversary permission was obtained for Twelfth Street outside the legion building to be re-named Veterans Way. The branch will be celebrating on Nov. 9 with a veterans lunch for all veterans (guests $5), with cake and entertainment for everyone. In the evening following the meat draw, at 6:30 p.m. will be supper and entertainment by Buzz Byer.

Food bank joins forces with Christmas Hamper Committee Collaborative effort between two charitiable groups will ensure efficient distribution of donated items and allow for more operating hours at the Cawston / Keremeos Food Bank Contributed by Ingrid Percival, Cawston Keremeos Food Bank The Cawston / Keremeos Food Bank, Valley First Credit Union’s Feed the Valley and the Similkameen Christmas Hamper Committee have joined forces for the holiday season. Due to the overwhelming success of food donations and generosity of our community, we are collaborating to benefit the needy in our valley. The Similkameen Christmas Hamper Committee will be handling the assembly and distribution of a pre-assembled Christmas Dinner Hamper. Applications for the Christmas Hamper will be held at the Keremeos Info Centre from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on November 26, 28 and 30. The Valley First Credit Union is still asking for food donations to be dropped off at the credit union to help them win the Feed the

Valley contest. Most businesses and groups that have previously collected food donations for the Christmas Hamper will continue to do so and have the product delivered. All extra food donations collected that are not used in the Christmas hamper will be given to the Cawston / Keremeos Food Bank for distribution. The food bank will be open twice during the holiday season to accomodate the increased need anticipated during this time, on December 13 and 20 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. Clients of the food bank and recipients of a Christmas hamper will be permitted one food hamper from the food bank during Christmas season and should only come on one of the open days. If you would like to donate a monetary gift to the food bank you can do so at the Valley First Credit Union or mail a cheque directly to the food bank at 2334 Newton Road, Cawston, B.C. V0X 1C1. If you have any questions or would like to help during this busy time of year, please contact Ingrid at 250-499-2100. The Similkameen Hamper Committee, Valley First Credit Union and the Cawston / Keremeos Food Bank would like to thank the community for all their generosity and support to help the less fortunate in need during the holiday season, and look forward to your continued support.

Two SESS teams compete in Provincials on the weekend

Similkameen Elementary Secondary School sent three runners to the Cross Country Provincials in Prince George on the weekend. The three students performed well, in spite of a soggy, snowy, slushy and muddy route. Kassidy Todd placed 46 out of 251 and was the third Okanagan girl. Cael Warner placed 50 out of 249 and was the third Okanagan male to complete the run. Noah Beglaw placed 125 - a great showing for a 14 year old. All three felt it was a great experience overall. The SESS boys soccer team won their first

game against St. Johns Brebeuf 2-0, lost to runners up St. Andrews 4-0, lost to Queen Charlotte 3-2. They finished 12th in the Provincials after a penalty defeat to Meadowridge. Colton Wabenegger made the tournament top 11 player list. Jesse Vissia and Skye Terbasket had outstanding tournaments. Four starting players were affected by a stomach virus hampering our efforts. SESS teacher Nikki Johnson is in the process of starting a school/community garden on a plot of land outside of the school doors. A public forum is taking place on Wednesday, November 14 at 6 p.m. at the school. The grads had a very successful bottle drive. They were out in the community on Saturday morning. Thanks to all the community members for their donations of bags of cans and bottles, and thanks to all the parents and friends who volunteered to help out.

Clarification

SRC bowling scores

Busy week on many fronts for SESS students By Steve Arstad news@keremeosreview.com

Clarification is requested regarding last week’s article on page seven of the Review titled “Remuneration research not a reflection of reality,” in which it was stated that “Staff concluded that the mayor and council did indeed rate an increase, as their remuneration fell below the average for the communities surveyed.”

Staff, after collecting information on remuneration from other municipalities, did not make any recommendations r e g a r d i n g r e mu neration to council. Staff asked council for direction after noting that, according to their research, council and mayor’s stipends were below the provincial average for similar sized municipalities.

Former Keremeos firefighter Melanie Bagley responded to the department’s recent show of support for her current battle with cancer (several members had their heads shaved): Your support means so much to both myself and my family. I took some of you along to the hair salon where I was having my hair cut shorter so it wouldn’t be so dramatic when it started to fall out. You were quite the talk in the salon and there were a lot of gals who said you all looked sooooo handsome! Thanks a million for what you did. You made more than my day… you made my year!

Regional district directors discuss policy surrounding Regional Growth Strategy Directors ask how to revise Twin Lakes, St. Andrews designations in RGS By Steve Arstad news@keremeosreview.com The regional district’s South Okanagan Regional Growth Strategy was discussed recently at a Planning and Development Committee meeting. The Regional Growth Strategy (RGS) is a long-term planning project that deals with growth management issues over a 20-year period for the south Okanagan. The South Okanagan RGS has been developed over the past five years using a collaborative process that involves ongoing work with the public, First Nations, local, regional, provincial and federal governments. Since its recent adoption, the RGS is entering the initial stages of implementation. Over the coming months and years, the RDOS will endeavour to engage south Okanagan communities and rural areas in order to further the implementation of the RGS. This work will involve updates to local official community plans to ensure consistency with the RGS and to address issues such as growth management boundary indentification. The RGS does not include the Similkameen, whose politicians opted out of the strategy in its early stages. (The Similkameen Valley Planning Society performs a similar function to the RGS in the Similkameen.) Alternate Director for Area “D”, Tom Styffe questioned regional district staff with respect to changing primary and secondary growth areas that presently exist in the document. He noted that changes to requirements of the Dominion Radio Observatory (DRAO) with respect to radio interference at the St. Andrews subdivision and the desire by Twin Lakes residents to have their secondary growth area rating rescinded changed present RGS priorities. “Is there an opportunity to revisit (these areas) ?” Styffe asked. RDOS staff replied that the Regional Growth Strategy was revisited every five years, with board decisions on any changes to be signed off by all areas involved in the strategy. A question also arose regarding the superiority of legislation - whether or not changes to an area’s Official Community Plan could supercede the RGS, to which the answer was that the RGS is superior to OCP changes - yet at the same time, the RGS was to be considered a “non-regulatory” document.

“You say its non-regulatory - but things have to be consistent with RGS policy,” observed Oliver Mayor Ron Hovanes. West Bench Director Michael Brydon commented that the issue was one of autonomy. “The RGS point is to restrict autonomy,” he said, “but it has yet to be tested.” Area “G” Director Angelique Wood told the committee that it was important that Twin Lakes residents understand the obligation of the RDOS to accept

subdivision applications, adding that identifying RGS areas of growth did not mean that the regional district was “pro growth at any cost.” Alternate Director Styffe added that growth should be dealt with on a case by case basis. Further discussion involved the question of how the RGS could be opened up to make changes to growth area designations, with Oliver rural Director Allan Patton suggesting that a motion be brought forward to the board.

Copper Ridge Modular Home Park welcomes first house Show home exemplifies how far modern modular technology has come By Steve Arstad news@keremeosreview.com Copper Ridge Modular Home Park welcomed the first unit to the new retirement community last week. The show home, constructed by Moduline in Penticton, was placed on site on October 26 and 27, a 1,414 square foot two bedroom home with den.

The new home is air conditioned and comes with a carport and covered patio. Amenities include 100 per cent drywall throughout, deluxe kitchen with dishwasher and ice maker, cement board siding and a walk in closet in the main bedroom. The ensuite bathroom contains a corner soaker tub and shower. The initial unit is expected to sell for $179,000. Copper Ridge is located just south of Olalla, approximately eight kilometres north of Penticton. There is a total of 20 sites in the community, most with views looking north towards Yellow Lake.

High tech mobile juicer works in Cawston By Steve Arstad news@keremeosreview.com

Photo by Steve Arstad

Mobilejuicing owner Kristen Wurtele bags freshly processed apple juice while workers unload another bin into the mobile processing facility in Cawston last week.

Mobilejuicing.com brought its high tech apple juice rendering machine to the Lower Similkameen last week to process nine bins of apples from a Cawston orchard. The $200,000 unit - the price includes a truck and generator needed to make it mobile - can process up to 16 bins a day - and more if necessary said owner / operator Kristen Wurtele. The juicing machine does it all - grinds the apples to a pulp, pumping the slurry onto screens that are stacked seven deep into a 40 ton hydraulic press that recovers 70 per cent of the apple’s juice.

The product then goes to a flash pasteurizer where the juice is hit with 78 degree Celsius heat for 15 seconds. From there it goes to a holding tank and from there it flows into bags. Coarse filtering does not remove all the solids; the consumer is left with the choice of using clarified juice, which occurs through settling, or shaking the container to mix it up again. The finished product keeps up to a year on the shelf without refrigeration, and for three months on the shelf after being opened. “We went through organic certification recently,” Wurtele said, “so we are now able to process organically certified apple juice, which should be good news for Cawston growers.”

Discovery of microwaves leads to development of radio telescopes

In 1940 Britain was hard pressed defending itself, and did not have the resources to exploit important secret devices it had invented for the war effort. The British government decided to hand them over to Canada and the U.S.A., where the resources were available to continue their development. One of the most closely-guarded of these secrets resembled a copper hockey puck with cooling fins, with two wires coming out of one edge, with a large connector opposite. This device, the resonant cavity mag-

netron, invented by John Randall and Harry Boot at Bir mingham University, made it possible, for the first time, to produce high-power radio transmissions at short, centimetre wavelengths. Today we call these microwaves. That copper hockey puck made precision radar systems possible, using antennas ten or more times smaller than any existing systems. They could be deployed on aircraft, vehicles and ships. Earlier airborne radars required the plane to be covered in antenna components, making them look like flying hedgehogs. The new antennas could be little dishes concealed in the noses of the aircraft. Some magnetrons were handed over to NRC, which improved them and incorporated them into radar systems for

the allies, making the organization a major centre for wartime radar development. When peace returned, NRC found itself with a lot of accumulated expertise and a lot of radar hardware lying around. One of the NRC scientists working on radar development was Arthur Covington. In 1946 he and his colleagues used those components to make Canada’s first radio telescope. Its operating wavelength was 10.7 cm. Over the following months, Canada’s first radio astronomers pointed their instrument at the Milky Way, planets, the aurora, the Moon and the Sun. However, the only cosmic radio waves they could detect came from the Sun. Covington and his team noticed two key things. Firstly the solar radio emissions were stronger than

expected, and secondly, they varied from day to day. Using a solar eclipse on 23 November, 1946, Covington found that most of the radio emission was coming from a magnetically active area on the Sun, and that the measurements he and his team were making were a stethoscope on solar magnetic activity. Fortuitously, 10.7 cm is a very good wavelength for this. Since this magnetic activity affects our communications, satellite performance, GPS navigation, power lines, pipelines and many other human activities and infrastructure elements, Covington’s radio measurements became very important, and a service of providing these data, now known as the 10.7 cm solar radio flux, or F10.7, to users around the world.

NRC, now in partnership with Natural Resources Canada and the Canadian Space Agency, continues to make daily measurements of F10.7 and distribute them to the world. The programme is now located at the Dominion Radio Astrophysical Observatory, in B.C. In the postwar years, the resonant cavity magnetron made possible one other key piece of technology that most of us have in our homes, the microwave oven. Mars is low in the Southwest after sunset. Jupiter rises around 7 p.m. and Venus around 4 a.m. The Moon will be new on the 13th.

Local SAR team receives new vehicle

Keremeos SAR thrilled with donation Contributed by Tara Moroz, Secretary-Treasurer, KSAR On October 20, three members of Keremeos Search And Rescue (KSAR) travelled to Cranbrook to pick up a new truck. KSAR reformed and has been active for three years. Members of KSAR have advanced tracking capabilities as well as having tracking instructors. The group is working on a rope team. KSAR responds to mutual aid

call-outs with Penticton, OliverOsoyoos and Princeton search and rescue (SAR)teams and also serve the South Okanagan and further if needed. KSAR is currently recruiting for new members. If you are adventurous, like the outdoors and are a good team player, you might be a good fit for the group. Outdoor training and experience is not neccesary; we will train. Please call 250-499-1800 for more info and applications.

Okanagan Regional Library board meeting highlights Contributed At the October 17 meeting of the Okanagan Regional Library’s Board of Trustees, board members: - Approved 2013 budget expenditures in the amount of $16,617,824, an increase of $538,103. Property taxes in municipalities and rural areas within the four regional districts of Central Okanagan, North Okanagan, Columbia Shuswap, and Okanagan-Similkameen will fund approximately 85 per cent of the cost. The library currently serves just over 370,000 residents. - The new budget includes growing costs for buildings and staff, and an additional $130,000 for the library’s collections, as the library is now providing both digital and print copies of magazines, books, and audio books through its website, www. orl.bc.ca - Revenue from a lost federal grant for internet access in library branches had to be replaced. - One new internet technician position will be added in 2013, and $10,000 was added to the training budget, as technology training for staff at all levels is becoming very important. - Reserve funds will be used

for a number of projects in 2013, including replacing the library’s telephone system, and replacing the library’s circulation and cataloguing software. Funding from the board’s Strategic Planning Reserve fund included additional outreach hours for small branches in the library system. Most branch staff are tied to the physical branch, but research for the library board’s strategic plan showed that residents of rural communities wanted their library branches to have stronger connections with their local community, so some community time is being added. In other business, the board also approved up to $25,000 for a consultant to work with staff on the redesign of Kelowna Branch, to make the branch more comfortable for library users. As the decision to replace an aging carpet had already been made, the board felt it would save money to have a good plan to move book stacks and branch collections around at the same time as the carpeting was replaced.

To the Editor: Inspired by a variety of articles and letters to editors of local papers throughout South Okanagan Similkameen region and over a decade of work with community organizations, citizens and seasonal farm workers, Penticton and Area Women’s Centre is working on a project titled From Discord To Action: Cultivating Community Change Around Seasonal Farm Work. The project’s purpose is to bring the communities and the farmers from the South Okanagan Similkameen region (from Summerland to Keremeos) together to discuss the issue of seasonal farm labour. By discussing all the related problems and sharing our best and worst experiences, we aim to design a workable action plan to enable the entire region to best address this challenge. As one region with a developed action plan, South Okanagan Similkameen communities, acting together, would

increase chances of receiving assistance from any government agency. We are presently handing out survey questionnaires through the communities that would help us streamline the dialogue at the forum. Survey pamphlets and drop-in boxes can be found at the following locations: Keremeos – Visitor’s Centre Osoyoos – Town Hall main lobby Oliver – Park Drive Church We are asking you to support PAWC and your community by participating at the all day Action Planning Forum on November 20, and/or by becoming a sponsor of the event. For more information please contact Lilly Zekanovic, Project Co-ordinator at Penticton & Area Women’s Centre Tel: (250) 493-6822 Email: farmwork.pawc@gmail.com

Understanding mortgage insurance Buying a home? Renewing an existing mortgage? In either case, there’s something you need to consider. What happens to your home if you should become incapacitated or die? Would your family be able to stay in their home? Most lending institutions offer mortgage insurance when you arrange a mortgage with them and it’s the ‘easy’ way to get coverage. But before you say yes, here are a few things to think about. • The lender’s representative who arranges your mortgage is usually not licensed to sell insurance products and cannot provide you with advice or guidance with respect to the insurance or provide guidance in answering the questions on the enrollment form for mortgage insurance. Here’s what can happen and has been documented in some cases: On the mortgage insurance form, you are asked to answer some general questions about your health and you do so to the best of your ability without realizing that your answers may not provide the full disclosure the insurance company needs. For mortgage insurance, the underwriting (the process of choosing who and what the insurance company will insure) is done at the time of a claim – so while you may believe you are covered, at the worst possible time, that coverage can be uncertain. • A policy obtained through a lending institution has no cash value and benefits are paid directly to the lender not to your beneficiaries at a time when the money may be required the most. • Premiums can be raised or the policy cancelled at any time. • Your lender owns the policy so if you decide to move to another lender for a better interest rate or for a new mortgage on a new home, you would have to re-qualify medically for coverage, maybe for higher premiums, or you may no longer be eligible for coverage. • Your coverage decreases as the mortgage is paid down but your premiums remain the same so the cost of your insurance actually increases as your coverage decreases.

MANAGING Your Money • There is absolutely no coverage when the mortgage is paid off. There’s no doubt insurance is necessary protection for you home and family. But before making the decision, look at other options like getting the coverage you need with a personally owned life insurance policy. A professional advisor can help you select the right insurance for your needs and other protection that fits seamlessly with your overall financial plan.

The Review, Thursday, November 8, 2012 — Page 19

The Poppy Is a Symbol of Wartime Remembrance The poppy has stood as the official symbol of Canada’s Remembrance Day since 1921, a visual reminder of all those who made the ultimate sacrifice for war. Some may wonder why this small flower is used to represent the fallen soldier. Poppies and fallen soldiers have a long history together. The origins of the flower can be traced back to the Napoleonic wars in France. During these times of unrest and battle, many soldiers went on to final resting places in graves in Flanders, France. Ensuing literature describing how poppies grew so thickly and vibrantly over these graves -- in soil that once could not produce much vegetation. Years later, a soldier would be instrumental in bringing the symbol of the poppy to the hearts and minds of Canadians. When John McCrae served in World War I as a Lieutenant-Colonel, he was stationed near Ypres, Belgium, the area traditionally called Flanders. McCrae observed how poppies grew so well among the makeshift graves of the soliders, which were marked by wooden crosses. When McCrae lost a fellow soldier and close friend, he penned a poem called “In Flanders Fields” and portrayed the picture of war and the poppy flower visual. To this day McCrae’s poem remains among the most memorable war poems ever written. It also paved the way for the poppy flower to be one of the most recognized symbols of wartime remembrance. Thousands of poppies are placed on the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, and Remembrance Day participants wear poppies on their lapels.

“In Flanders Fields”

In Flanders fields.

In Flanders Fields the poppies blow Between the crosses row on row, That mark our place; and in the sky The larks, still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard amid the guns below.

Take up our quarrel with the foe: To you from failing hands we throw The torch; be yours to hold it high. If ye break faith with us who die We shall not sleep, though poppies grow In Flanders fields.

We are the Dead. Short days ago We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved and were loved, and now we lie

JACK: It is with great sadness and love; we announce the passing of Jack Sparkes, in Keremeos, on October 29, 2012 at the age of 90. He will be forever loved and deeply missed by his partner Sharon Ewin, his 3 children; Judy Chase (Bruce) of Westbank, Marlene Isola (Tino) of South Surrey, and Bill Sparkes (Tammy) of Keremeos; his 8 Grandchildren; Marianne, Stephanie, Melissa, Danielle, Miranda, Lucas, Jenifer and Ethan; his niece Carol, nephew Wayne, nephew John (Jennie), many other family members, as well as his numerous friends. Jack was born in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, July 4, 1922. He was active and healthy right up to the end. He loved to socialize, have a good laugh, explore the backroads of B.C., Àsh, travel, and spend time with Sharon. Jack’s favorite place was in the woods. He amazed many with his falling of trees and cutting of Àrewood, even at the age of 90. He will be sadly missed. The family would like to thank the staff at The Keremeos Diagnostic Clinic and the Ambulance Attendants. There will be no Service as requested.
