New doctor for Princeton in 2013 “A lot of work is being done — I am very pleased.”

Councillor Jason Earle Town of Princeton Lisa Carleton lisa@similkameenspotlight.com

During the regular meeting of Council held on Nov. 19, staff and council reports were presented, with Mayor Frank Armitage requesting that Councillor Jason Earle give his report after as to “save the best for last,” he said. The reason for doing so was that Councillor Earle had a special announcement to make—one the community has waited quite some time for. Councillor Earle began his announcement by commenting on the recent Public Health Notice issued to the community from Interior Health. He said, “The notice is not leading up to bad news, it is a reminder.” People are forgetting what is important. He added, “Please, do not worry about whether the hospital is open or not, use the system in place. Call 811 or 911 if you need medical attention.” Earle then reported that he had attended a meeting during the afternoon whereupon he was given the news that Dr. Sandhu had signed a contract to begin practicing in Princeton in August of 2013. She is currently practicing in B.C. He also commended Princeton’s Dr. Eva for his efforts in recruiting Dr. Sandhu. “Dr. Eva has been instrumental in this process,” he said. Councillor Earle said that he is very pleased with the work that is being done. See next weeks Spotlight for November’s full Council report.

Resident Yukon Eric Holopainen explains his displeasure with government systems to forum panelists; MP Alex Atamanenko, Area H Director Brad Hope, Save our Similkameen president Solana Allison, MLA Harry Lali, Mayor Frank Armitage and Ed Staples vice president of Save Our Hospital Coalition. Councillor Doug Patemen listens intently from the front row in the audience.

MP Alex Atamanenko hosts forum Lisa Carleton lisa@similkameenspotlight.com

Alex Atamanenko, NDP Member of Parliament (MP) for the Southern Interior of British Columbia hosted a MP Forum at the Legion Hall on Nov. 14 to give residents an opportunity to hear from their elected officials and to ask questions of them. To begin, a 10 minute film was shown courtesy of Red Rock Productions. They produced this film featuring highlights of the community in an effort to assist in the attraction and retention of doctors to the community. Mayor Frank Armitage said, “What wonderful work that is, a picture is worth a million words.” Mayor Armitage assured the approximately 40 residents

in attendance that Council was trying to have an open door policy and that there “is nothing that we can’t talk about,” he said. Ed Staples, vice president of Save our Hospital Coalition spoke about equality and accessibility in health care. MLA Harry Lali spoke about the “cookie cutter cuts” happening all over, how he felt the “business model” did not work and encouraged residents that “If you believe in something you don’t give up.” Solana Allison, president of Save Our Similkameen spoke of how a hospital is the “anchor of any community.” She explained that Princeton was not alone in the struggles with

Forty years ago, Shirley Freding decided to provide the residents of Princeton with recreational alternatives for those who were not interested in sports. “Anyone can learn to paint or do many types of crafts,� has become her signature statement. Freding is a self taught professional artist who has been experimenting and expanding her knowledge with various techniques in ceramics, pottery, kiln fired glass, oil painting, watercolours and numerous other crafts. Regular classes for adults and children are available at Freding’s teaching studio and gift shop Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. Special classes can be arranged for day, evening or weekends by giving Freding a call at 250-295-4076. Freding has been offering Birthday Party classes for children and as of late adults as well. The parties have been a hit, so Freding has decided to open them up for the holiday season. “Make this Christmas a home-made Christmas,� said Freding. “Come in and we’ll have a gift making party.� Freding has recently brought in new supplies and is now offering classes in Jewellery making— another gift idea added to the vast collection that she offers. Stop by 162 Vermilion Avenue, peruse the gift shop or talk to Freding about taking a class or making a gift whether it be for Christmas, a birthday or otherwise, she will be more than happy to share her knowledge with you. On another note, Freding’s talents and popularity have traversed outside of Princeton. She is being honoured as the Feature Artist of the month during December 2012 at the Oliver Art Gallery. She will also be teaching watercolour classes there soon. While you are travelling in December, stop by the Oliver Art Gallery to see what she has showing. Photos submitted

Local Theresa Martin decided to throw her daughter-in-law a surprise birthday party at Shirley’s Art Studio. Shirley and Sophie Martin are shown admiring the pasta bowls that party goers created during the birthday party. Shirley is offering gift making party/classes for Christmas as well.

The Regional District Board of Directors were given the figure for enhancing emergency telecommunications at the November 15 Protective Services Committee meeting. Mory Kapustianyk, an engineer with Planetworks Consulting Corporation, presented the estimate after a short presentation summarizing the study. Upgrades to the system could cost between 1.5 and two million dollars, depending on the selection of two options presented by Kapustianyk at the conclusion of his presentation. The regional district’s present situation in terms of its communications system is “not unusual,� Kapustianyk told the board. “It’s how most departments operate but that’s good and bad news.� Kapustianyk said that after looking at local communications radio sites and interviewing regional district fire chiefs, Planetworks had come up with a baseline assessment and a shopping list of things that need to be done. The present communication setup contains three “layers�: - initial dispatch - ongoing communication between dispatch and officer in charge

- firefighters talking to each other. Problems carrying on multiple radio conversations with various regional departments were found to be a major issue in the study, in which it was hoped to resolve the following communications issues currently inherent in the regional district’s telecommunications setup: 1. Allow dispatch to send out an initial page without delay. “This is probably the biggest risk of any 911 centre,� Kapustianyk said, “if anyone is going to be caught on anything, it’s that delay.� (The delay Kapustianyk referred to involved the possiblity, under the present system, of dispatch not being able to send a 911 page out if it was already tied up on an emergency with another fire department; basically, under the present system, dispatch can only communicate with one department at a time.) 2. Provide ongoing communication between a regional department and dispatch anywhere in the regional district, at all times. 3. Develop the ability to detect communication problems before the system is needed. 4. Provide a pre planned back up plan should (1) or (2) above fail. Kapustianyk described the present communications systems as a “series of hops� with the data link between Kelowna and Penticton, to radio links from antennas based at the school board offices, up to mountain top links within the regional district, and from there to the applicable fire department. The “series of hops� only affect the rural departments, as Penticton and Summerland’s departments depend only on the commercial link out of Kelowna. Fourteen departments share that one line,� Kapustianyk explained, “if dispatch has concurrent events, then you have a problem. You’ve got one big party line, and dispatch trying to talk to multiple departments. Two concurrent calls could result in missed communications, possibly even a missed page out. You’ve been running this system for all these years - you’ve been lucky.� Kapustinyk broke down the regional district’s departments into three zones, with zone one containing the Kaleden and Okangan Falls departments (averaging two calls per day), Keremeos in zone two (one call every 22 hours), and Hedley in zone three (one call every 60

hours on average). Once again, Kapustianyk assured the board that the regional district’s issues were not uncommon. “It’s a big chunk of what we do, correcting this problem,� he explained. The areas of concern highighted in the study were: - the need for a cost apportionment policy to be developed, in order to define who is responsible for the system. - no formal process for standardization. - many radio sites need to be improved and secured. - dependency on commercial data connections ( the Kelowna link) - poor / no signal coverage in some areas. - lack of system redundancy. - lack of system health monitoring. - Emergency Operations Centre not connected to the radio network. - some equipment near the end of its useful life. - insufficient communication linking capacity. Two solutions were presented to the board, one using a “zoned� approach while the other would use a “one to one� approach. Applying a four phased approach in order to ease budget shock, the zoned approach is estimated at 1.5 million dollars; the one to one approach at 2 million dollars. Phase one would involve prep work, phase two would upgrade the Penticton area, with Phase three and four upgrading zone two and three respectively. Kapustianyk pointed out the communication link between Kelowna 911 dispatch and the Penticton school board as an area of concern. Calling it a “commercial grade data connection,� Kapustinayk prioritized it for replacement with a radio link as part of the first phases that would take place to upgrade the system. A co-location agreement with licensees of the radio towers on Okanagan Mountain would have to be arranged, in addition to an ongoing rental agreement. The Kelowna link did not exist prior to the reassignment of 911 services to Kelowna late last year. The move - which was made to save 1.79 million over five years - cost several local jobs. The communication link has been criticized over the past 11 months as a weak link in the system - that did not exist prior to Kelowna taking on dispatch services - that would need to be fixed at additional cost to the taxpayer. The regional district board will be discussing the study further, prior to setting the budget for 2013. Kapustianyk indicated it would take between 18 and 24 months to introduce all the upgrades.

Mayor and Council priorities for 2012-2013 Mayor Armitage and Councillors Earle, Harkness, Maynard and Pateman with senior staff participated in three separate sessions to set out the priorities for the municipality over the next year and a half. “For our municipality to make progress there has to be a clear set of goals and priorities. For local governments, the agenda can change quickly as issues come and go in the community. The town recently had a bi-election which resulted in a new Mayor and Councillor, making it necessary to undertake a Priority Setting exercise. Council needed to determine which goals and objectives will be acted upon during the remainder of their term. Council has set the following priorities with the expectation that regular progress reports will be provided on the status of each of theses priorities. Mayor Armitage said, “Council is very pleased with our priorities and this process which keeps us focused as we move forward as a council and community.” During the working sessions a long list of projects were generated but Council needed to narrow the scope to fit within the constraints of budgets and staffing capacities. Council and staff have already begun work on most of Council’s priorities and they look forward to reporting the status of these priorities on a regular basis.

Community Development: (Supporting Health Care) • Advocate for health care services for the Town of Princeton • Lobby and participate in working groups for 24/7 Emergency Room Services •  Actively support and assist with physician recruitment and locum recruitment Financial Governance: •Explore and increase local government revenue sources to offset increasing infrastructure expenditures • Look at marketing opportunities to sell Industrial Park lots Land Use Planning: • Development of a new Zoning Bylaw that will regulate land use to achieve long range direction set out in the Official Community Plan Bylaw No. 808,2008 • Focus on objectives for sustainability and innovation that will provide the most benefits for the town.

SpotlightOPINION Kicking the Nic, for good Staff Writer Black Press

It’s hard to believe that in this day and age, with all the knowledge around the dangers of smoking and glaring warning messages plastered across tobacco products, that youth continue to pick up the habit. Unlike years ago, when smoking wasn’t thought to be all that bad for you, everyone knows that smoking kills. “It would be like us testing your water and saying your water causes cancer – you wouldn’t drink it,” points out respiratory therapist Sylvia Grutzmacher. Ask any teen, especially any smoking teen, and they’ll tell you that they know the risks. Yet the number of students lighting up locally continues to surprise school officials. So instead of sitting blindly by, some teachers are doing what they can to help their students butt out. Throughout the Vernon School District, high schools have implemented a Kick the Nic program, designed to give students incentive and support to quit. The fact that schools, and staff, have implemented the program is admirable on its own. But what’s even better is the fact that they are attracting youth, and they are having success in helping some of them quit. Obviously not everyone can be helped – as any smoker will tell you, it has to be their decision to quit. But some have come to that decision thanks to the program. Learning about the endless list of illnesses caused by cancer, seeing the aging effects smoking creates and hearing stories of loved ones dying from smoking is helping more youth come to the decision to Kick the Nic. Without such a program, even those most motivated to quit might not succeed. But thanks to the support and resources offered, they are one step closer to Kicking the Nic, for good.

Will the federal government fight for its western citizens because the province has given in to the creature they share the public trough with?  Will the people of B.C. be treated to the spectacle of the province & country scrapping over a medical budget meant for the people? Again, I say, this province’s ‘health authorities’ has let down rural residents, slashed essential services, ignored real pleas for help and disregarded not only their provincial masters but thumbed their collective noses at the constitution of Canada.

Mz. Aglukkaq: I write to you today because words are not enough to incite action in my home province of British Columbia. I’m sure the threat of E.R. closures are a popular theme of late. Here in B.C. it is epic in scope and tragic in results. Health ‘authorities’ in this province have decimated rural health care. Payment structures are so convoluted that many Dr.s & health professionals are opting out of rural practice, and why not? Would you do your job if you had to wait to get paid? Bear in mind these people aren’t serving coffee, they’re saving lives and alleviating pain & distress. Our hospitals (the remaining ones at least) are over run with their own townspeople on top of the influx from outlying communities who are no longer valued enough to get E.R. coverage. I find this odd because the Canadian Constitution has made specific reference to this very situation. PART III EQUALIZATION AND REGIONAL DISPARITIES Marginal note: Commitment to promote equal opportunities 36. (1) Without altering the legislative authority of Parliament or of the provincial legislatures, or the rights of any of them with respect to the exercise of their legislative authority, Parliament and the legislatures, together with the government of Canada and the provincial governments, are committed to

(a) promoting equal opportunities for the well-being of Canadians; (b) furthering economic development to reduce disparity in opportunities; and (c) providing essential public services of reasonable quality to all Canadians. Please see (C) for effect. As it stands my understanding is that closing an essential service is against the constitution of this country and therefore, illegal. Please clarify this for me & all of us in B.C. I know it to be true. Just looking for a spine in government, somewhere, anywhere! It is embarrassing to see such callous disregard for the citizens of B.C. and all of Canada. In British Columbia the essential service issue is so hidden, the only time it can ever be acknowledged is during a labour dispute.  That is happening now, and wouldn’t you know it, just in time for provincial  elections next year. Unlike others, I don’t see this as a political problem.   Mainly because if anyone has an accident, when medical services are finally rendered, political affiliations are never part of the remedy. That is what’s required in times of strife isn’t it? A remedy. We are formally requesting third party intervention. Let’s try to envision what that would look like, shall we? Should the federal government deem our B.C. government too incompetent to manage the health of its own citizens (and this is clearly the case) how would they rectify the situation? Will the fed-

Council hosts Let’s Talk 2012 Lisa Carleton lisa@similkameenspotlight.com

On Tuesday, Nov.13 Town Council hosted a dinner for volunteer organizations within the community as a way of extending their appreciation and providing assistance and organizing skills to the organizations. After a welcome and commendations from Mayor Frank Armitage, Nadine McEwen, Recreation and Culture Coordinator for the Town of Princeton provided a wealth of information. She gave an outline of advertising tools: Leisure Guide, Electronic Board, Town website, Visitor’s Guide and the Similkameen Valley Planning Society Tourism Advisory Council. She explained how Public Works events support could be properly acquired and how organizations could help and support each other (shared advertising, linking to each others websites and participating in each others events.), and how and when to apply for the Town of Princeton Grant in Aid program. This was then followed by event date planning.

FORUM - from page 1 health services, that we were one of 148 municipalities dealing with the same issues. Cuts of transfer payments on the Federal level causing the trickle down effect that we are feeling with health care. Area H Director Brad Hope said that everyone had covered the issues very well. (The one thing about going last-everything has already been said) He praised the Save our Hospital Coalition for their efforts and spoke very highly of Solana Allison. “Sol was almost embarrasingly persisitant at UBCM, he said, “She was everywhere and hitting everyone up.” We have good people working their butts off - I feel good about what we have in Princeton, we will get there,” he added. Hope then spoke about the Similkameen Watershed Study, the Official Community Plan, the Simalkameen Valley tourism concept and about how all of the areas communities had their own diversity, but that we were still one big family. MP Alex Atamanenko agreed with panel concerns as well and spoke of his frustrations when he looks at the big issues. He said that “I get angry when I see what is going on.” For instance, the fight to get funding to bury a war Veteran, his concerns with GMO modification, and the importation of horses for slaughter, just to name a few. The floor was opened to questions from the residents. Various concerns, solutions and ideas were shared in regards to dealing with government agencies, health care services, centralization and even democracy. After the question and answer period, closing comments were made by the panelists, whom all made the assurances that their work and efforts to resolve issues would carry on and that communities should not give up. Their closing remarks best summed up by Solana Allison who said, “All the greatest wins in North America came from the grassroots levels. We can do it here.”

Local Jennifer Bernard took these photos on Friday, Nov. 16, from the balcony of her neighbours home. “I could not see any flames, but there sure was a ton of smoke,” said Bernard. A male youth noticed the fire in his home when he arrived there from work at approximately 7:30 p.m., and called the fire department. Fire Chief Eric Gregson, of the Princeton Volunteer Fire Brigade said that “the fire is currently under investigation.” The fire began in the ground floor level of the home located in the Allison Flats area of town. FortisBC employees Aaron Gould and Jason Earle were called in immediately to cut off the power supply to the home. Firefighters remained on scene until 11 p.m. Chief Gregson reported that no one human was hurt in the fire, however there were pet cats that did not survive. Updates will be provided as they are received.

Ready to race in 2013 Lisa Carleton lisa@similkameenspotlight.com

Princeton Racing Days Association is ready to run in 2013 The annual general meeting of the Princeton Racing Days Association was held at the library conference room on Thursday, Nov. 15. President Karrie Crucil welcomed all in attendance and then asked for a moment of silence to be held in remembrance of Roberta Baron, a long time member of the association who passed away in August of this year. Crucil thanked the board for their efforts in 2012 saying, “We had great race days this year, my family and I had a lot of fun.” “We are looking forward to next year,” she added. Crucil then tabled all ongoing business and asked Councillor Doug Pateman to officiate the annual general meeting and election of officers. President, vice-president, and treasurer positions were filled by acclamation. President for 2013 is Karrie Crucil, vice president Yvonne Liddicoat and treasurer is Bill Vowles. The position of secretary was chosen via ballot vote and was

filled by Mariah Liddicoat. Association directors for 2013 are; Jennifer Bernard, Della Osbourne, Dino Crucil and Sue Gereau. Mayor Frank Armitage attended the annual general meeting and offered his congratulations to the board from last year and for the upcoming year. “Congratulations, I wish you every success,” he said to the new executive. “If there is anything I and council can do, don’t hesitate to call.” Local owner, June Dunte attended the meeting to extend her thanks and appreciation to the board of 2012. Dunte’s horses won two major races on home soil this year. “On behalf of myself and my trainer, I want to thank Princeton Racing Days for the improvements to the track this year,” she said. “Our horses are very important to us and we are very happy with the work.” The Racing Days Association will recess for the month of December barring making application for their dates in 2013 and then will return to business as usual with their first meeting on January 17, 2013 at 6:30 p.m., in the Princeton Linrary conference room.

Cawston Players perform a Christmas Chaos Dave Cursons Special to the Spotlight

Friday, December 7, through Sunday, December 9 at 7:00 p.m., at The Cawston Community Hall you can witness the  comical turmoil of pulling together Charles Dickens’  A Christmas Carol at the last minute. Playwright Michael  Wehrli has provided a riotous satire of what happens when a big city theatre company gets lost in Saskatchewan and will therefore miss their Cawston, BC engagement.  Of course, the show must go on!  So, curtain up and light the lights on . . . mayhem. In eight weeks of rehearsal sixteen members of the Cawston Players are falling all over themselves to make A Christmas Chaos a hilarious tour de force. The Cawston Post has called this much-awaited theatrical endeavor, a  “potential disaster with all the trappings of a smash hit”. The local script re-writer (Dominique Dupuis) is full of herself, Scrooge (Coretin CaroChambard ) is a superb actor and he knows it. The Stage Manager (Jenna Sipponen) and Director ( A m a n d a Elyzen) pass the buck like a hot potato while  two youngsters Photo submitted (Esther Cottrill Stage carpenter, John Hutchinson adding and Jasmine another feature backstage.

out to play Tiny Tim. Bob and Mrs. Cratchit (Gabi Cursons) are a crack-up, The Ghosts Past, Present (played by Melissa Barr) and Future (Jacquine Manet-Bobier) are quite mad and stage fright itself is a player.   Huck Finn, Anne Shirley and St. Nicholas appear out of the blue (all played by John Butcher). Technical features are fully represented and completely out of sync. Yet it all comes together in a comic romp with the rag tag company of players forging the classic A Christmas Carol as it has never before been ‘flung’ onstage. The play is two acts with  one intermission. There’s a Special Sunday Matinee.  Refreshments will be served  from the hall kitchen for all performances. Advance Tickets are available at Similkameen Agencies in Keremeos and at The Cawston Marketplace. General Admission is $10 and for those under 16, just $5.

Diwali, known as the Festival of Lights, is one of the most important festivals of the year, celebrated between October and November. The Hindu festival is usually a five day celebration in which small clay lamps are lit at night, homes are cleaned, people wear new clothing and snacks and gifts are shared amongst family members and friends. Rangoli is a form of folk art from India. It is also known as Kolam. Rangoli is a large part of the Diwali (Festival of Lights) celebration. Rangoli are usually created from coloured rice, dry flour, coloured sand and flower petals. It is an important part of the spiritual process, symbolizing joy and happiness. Over the years, techniques and materials for making Rangoli have become more modernized

The decorative designs are created on the floors of living rooms and courtyards during Diwali and other Hindu celebrations. They designed for sacred welcoming areas for Hindu deities as well.

Nov. 13, was the day to celebrate Diwali with John Allison Elementary School. Amber Atwal and her friend Prab visited the school during Mrs. Barth’s Fine Arts class and told them about the Rangoli - A colourful symbol of Welcoming. Each of the children in the school made a candle lantern to celebrate the Festival of Lights.

Similkameen Spotlight November 21, 2012

A Side Dish Fit for a Thanksgiving Feast Potatoes are especially fun for Thanksgiving, as they afford cooks the opportunity to experiment in a myriad of ways, including the following recipe for “Auntie Stellie’s Twice-Baked Thanksgiving Potatoes” from Marlena Spieler’s “Yummy Potatoes” (Chronicle Books). Auntie Stellie’s Twice-Baked Thanksgiving Potatoes Serves 4-6 4 to 6 medium-size, creamy-fleshed baking potatoes (5 to 6 inches long, 6 ounces each) 6 tablespoons unsalted butter 6 to 8 tablespoons creme fraiche 6 to 7 green onions, thinly sliced 6 to 8 ounces Double Gloucester or mature cheddar, shredded Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper Paprika, for sprinkling on top

CAPRICORN: That monster vacation you have been planning may have to be put on hold, Capricorn. But that doesn’t mean that you can’t take a few weekend jaunts to make up for it. AQUARIUS: Aquarius, the only way to recharge your batteries this week is to plan a trip. There is nothing like a change of scenery to breathe new life into a situation. PISCES: When someone does not take your advice, it can be easy to feel slighted. Don’t let it bother you, Pisces, as it’s beyond your control. ARIES: Wonderful things can happen when you really don’t expect them, Aries. You may experience a pleasant surprise in the next several days, so be on the lookout for excitement. TAURUS: Taurus, you may have to juggle a few events to get everything you want to have accomplished done by a certain date. It could prove to be a hairy few days. GEMINI: Now is the time to get serious about saving, Gemini. No matter how hard you wish it, you will not see extra money simply appear in your bank account unless you put it there. CANCER: It could take a couple of attempts before you reach the level of satisfaction you are seeking, Cancer. Patience is key whenever delving into uncharted waters. LEO: Leo, a lot of things need to get done, but you’re worried there simply isn’t enough time to clear your docket. You have to cut out some of the nonessentials for now. VIRGO: Virgo, now might be the time for a permanent change in scenery. Your finances might be ready for you to uproot and follow your heart to another locale. LIBRA: Libra, you are ready to begin a big adventure. There may be moments that are scary, but overall the experience will be a good one for you and anyone else involved. SCORPIO: Scorpio, although you like to step up to a challenge, this week you really are not feeling like exerting yourself. Take some time to recuperate and build up renewed energy. SAGITTARIUS: Sagittarius, this week you may be called to go above and beyond. As usual, you are ready to rise to the challenge. Take care to put your best effort into the task. FOR ENTERTAINMENT ONLY

1. Before baking, make a hole or two in each potato so they don’t explode. To bake the potatoes, place them in a hot oven preheated to 425 F. If the potatoes are larger, try an hour and a half; if the potatoes are smaller, less time. The potatoes are ready when you can pierce them with a fork or sharp skewer. For a thick, crunchy skin, let the potatoes cool in the oven after you have turned off the heat. 2. When cool enough to handle, use a teaspoon to scoop out their insides, leaving a perimeter of potato flesh next to the skin all the way around.

3. Preheat the oven to 400 F. 4. Coarsely mash all the potato flesh in a bowl, then add the butter, creme fraiche and green onions and mix together. Season to taste with salt and pepper. 5. Spoon the mixture evenly into the potatoes, then arrange in a single layer in a baking pan and sprinkle with the cheese. Top with a pinch of paprika on each, then bake for about 10 minutes, or long enough to melt and sizzle the cheese on top of the potatoes and warm the potatoes all the way through.

SANDNESS, Nathalie Sparling (Nee Trelford)

1914 - 2012 Nathalie Sparling (Trelford) Sandness, 98, was welcomed into the arms of her Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ on November 9, 2012 surrounded by her loving family in Duluth, Minnesota. Sparling was born in 1914 in Duluth and married Norman A. L. Sandness in 1936. While a home-maker, she continued her education at the University of Minnesota Duluth taking courses in education and reading. Subsequently, she substitute taught in the elementary grades. Sparling was a member of First Presbyterian Church in Duluth. She was certainly “one in a million” and will be remembered for her volunteer work in a number of organizations in the community, especially as a Sunday school teacher. She was a faithful member of Community Bible Study, an avid walker, loved to read, cook, was a loving person to all, a devoted mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother who truly embodied the saying “Above All Faith and Family.” Sparling is preceded in death by her parents; sisters Mary and Gayle; twin brothers John and David, brother George C. and her husband Norman Sandness. Those surviving her include; her sister Elizabeth (Trelford) Long of California; three sons, John (Marcia) of Princeton, BC, Lynn (Patricia Maus) of Duluth, and James (Beret) of Export, Pennsylvania; two daughters, Elizabeth and Ann (Kenneth) of Minnesota; nine grandchildren, Steven (Michelle), John, Brent, Carl (Dorothy), Stephanie, David (Michaela), Kristen, Jonathan and Katie; and ten great-grandchildren; Brittany, Thomas, Joel, Morgan, Jack, Allison, Ryan, Chase, Matthew, Ginny; nieces and nephews and many friends. “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.” (Proverbs 3: 5,6) “Be still and know that I am God.” (Psalm 46:10) The family would like to thank all who provided the wonderful care Sparling received over the years. A private family grave site service was held November 12, 2012 A memorial service will be held at a later date.

McArthur, Robert Blair July 23, 1932 November 8, 2012

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Bob McArthur at Vernon Jubilee Hospital on November 8, 2012 at the age of 80 years. Bob is survived by his wife of 61 years, Merle, and his children, Donna Albury, Jill Silano (Jim), and Blair McArthur (Val).He is also survived by his grandchildren, Sarah (Josh), Christopher, Stephanie (Scott), Justin and Matthew, and 4 great-grandchildren. He was predeceased by his parents, Isabel and George, and his grandson Jason. Bob was born in Cereal, Alberta and raised in Vancouver, B.C. He worked for CIBC from the age of 18 until his retirement from the Vernon main branch. He was an avid golfer, a devoted family man, and a true gentleman who was greatly respected by all who met him. There will be no service at the request of the family. In lieu of flowers, whose who wish, may make a contribution in Bob’s memory to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of BC and Yukon, PO Box 3652 Station Terminal, Vancouver BC V6B 3Y8, or to a charity of their choice. The family would like to extend their gratitude to the physicians and staff of the VJH Emergency Department who tended to Bob in his last hours and ensured his comfort, as well as to the staff of DJ’s private care home, Polson Multi Unit, and Creekside Landing for all of the care and compassion provided to him in the past 3 ½ years. Bob was much loved and will be deeply missed.
