A violinist since age five and now a master fiddler, Daniel Gervais will dazzle you with a high energy program when he hits the stage Friday, November 30 for the South Okanagan Concert Society. Nominated for “Young Performer of the Year” at the Canadian Folk Music Awards, Daniel also won the 2011 Canadian Grand Master Fiddling Championship in Ottawa. Daniel brings with him his wife, step dancer, Aline Dupuis , and special guest, Calvin Vollrath, twice crowned North American Old Tyme Fiddle Champion and inducted into the North American Fiddlers Hall of Fame in New York. Tickets are on sale now at Beyond Bliss in Oliver, Imperial Office Pro in Osoyoos and at the door. A four admission flex pass costs only $60. The four admissions are entirely flexible and can be used together or in combination. Single admission is $20. Young people 17 and under are welcome to attend the concerts free. All the concerts begin at 7:30 p.m. at the temporary venue of Oliver Alliance Church. Along with busy schedules of performing, recording and teaching, Daniel is currently working towards a Master of Music degree at the University of Alberta. Recently he had the opportunity to perform at the 2012 London Olympics as one of Canada’s cultural ambassadors. In the spring, he was on stage at the prestigious Carnegie Hall in New York City. Just this month he has been performing with the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra. At this concert Daniel will play some Old Tyme fiddle music that recalls the days of Don Messer, Andy DeJarlis and Ti-Jean Carignan. There will be French-Canadian and Metis fiddle tunes accompanied by feet clogging. Daniel will demonstrate swing music with improvisation. His original compositions reflect the people and places encountered in travel and his experiences as a musician.

Keremeos VFD monthly stats Contributed Keremeos Volunteer Fire Department incidents and activities October 2012 1 – Structure fire 1 – Miscellaneous fire 5 – Motor vehicle incidents 1 – False alarm 3 – Brush / grass Fire 1 – Assist another agency 1 – Alarm activation The members of the Keremeos fire department had a very busy month, not only dealing with emergency call outs, but also participating in a Fire Prevention assembly at the Cawston primary School and a couple weekends of extra training. Keremeos Fire Department members, along with firefighters from Naramata, Kaleden, Okanagan Falls, Hedley, Oliver, Summerland and Penticton spent a Saturday with representatives from Fortis Power and Fortis Gas. The purpose of this “train the trainer” training was to ensure that members of the local fire departments were up to date on how to deal

with gas and electrical emergencies. Each participant will take this updated knowledge back and train the members at their own departments. Two weekend courses saw two different groups of members of the Keremeos Fire Department and Keremeos Search and Rescue participate in road rescue rope operations. The 20 hours of training saw the members hone up on their knot tying and embankment rescue skills. They were then taken out to the gravel pit where they practiced their skills, first on a 30 degree, then onto a 60 degree slope. Did you know, emergency service volunteers who participate in 200 hrs per year of training, being on standby and responding to incidents are eligible for a $3,000 tax credit?

news Twin Lakes residents picked up 1,600 pounds of shingles found illegally dumped along the banks of Horn Creek (and some into the creek) that provides water to the whole Twin Lakes aquifer. The regional district was notified of the illegal dump in October of 2011 but declined to pick it up for safety reasons. It took several residents eight hours and two trips to the dump to collect the refuse.

Keremeos Building Centre is sponsoring a contest that could win the community significant funds towards the Keremeos skating rink.

Christmas Light Up is coming to Keremeos Light up signals start of festive season in the Lower Similkameen By Colleen Christensen The most amazing 2012 Christmas Light up weekend is being planned for Keremeos and of course Similkameen Country will be starting the celebrations with our annual Christmas Parade December 7, at 5:30 p.m. After the parade the children can see Santa at Victory Hall and enjoy hot chocolate, hot dogs, popcorn and candy floss. Application forms for the parade contain information on the prizes that can be won for an entry into our parade. These entry forms can also be picked up at Similkameen Agencies and the Information Centre. Please consider putting an entry into the parade. There are nine categories that you can enter under and have a chance to win a prize for each category. You have three weeks to plan an entry for this event. A parade is a wonderful way to advertise a business and to bring Christmas to the Lower Similkameen Valley. This years theme is “Candy Cane Lane”. Our craft fair, opening Dec 7 3 p.m. – 8 and then again Dec

8 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. is almost booked up with vendors. There might still be time to apply so contact the information centre 250-499-5225 or the chair of this event Janet Tizzard 250499-7887 for a table. There are many celebrations happening on that weekend. Just to name a few, Pharmasave will be sponsoring the opening of the ice rink, Cawston Players will be presenting their annual play “A Christmas Chaos,” at Cawston Hall on December 7 8 and 9. The Winery Association is planning to have all of their wineries open the whole weekend December 7 -9 for a special chance to taste their wines and to purchase that very special bottle or special gift for Christmas, the Museum Society is planning a Christmas Tea at the Gibson House on December 8, and of course Valu Plus and most likely a lot of

the downtown business will be celebrating with Christmas specials. Please watch for the posters going up around town, articles and advertisements in the Keremeos Review, that will be advertising all of these special community events. I also will be emailing all the information on community events that will be happening for the next three weeks to those on my list, so I would encourage everyone to contact me at siminfo@nethop.net about your event. Our reader board sign is still being repaired so please pass this information onto family and friends so that no one will miss out on all of the special community celebration the weekend of Dec 7-9. Watch for other emails for the next three weeks to keep you posted on what is happening in the Lower Similkameen.

The Review

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

Editorial Directors face tough choices as budget time approaches Against a backdrop of looming budget talks for 2013 the Regional District Board of Directors were informed of the cost of a list of upgrades to the RDOS telecommunications network at last week’s board meeting. At an estimated cost of 1.5 to two million dollars, the system improvements are going to be a significant budget item in the coming year, or years, depending on how the board implements the improvements. Telecommunications improvements aren’t the only big budget issue the board will be dealing with in the coming years, as the regional district begins to look at such things as additional curbside collection of kitchen waste and associated infrastructure costs. Often spurred by provincial edicts, some of these intiatives may not make sense - or be cost effective - in a sparsely populated, low income region such as the RDOS. There is increasing pressure for municipal governments to put the brakes on spending, much like the province has been forced to do. The board will increasingly have their work cut out for them, to prevent local government from moving toward its own “fiscal cliff.” On the one hand, there seems to be no end of public demand for new and improved infrastructure at the regional district level. On the other hand, with an aging local population, many of whom live on fixed incomes, and a lethargic local economy, there seems to be no end for the need for belt tightening and restraint when spending the public purse. While that conflict is nothing new in itself, it nonetheless is a trend that appears to be headed - more rapidly than in the past - towards unsustainability.

Reality check on teen suicide By Tom Fletcher Black Press If you find Premier Christy Clark’s campaign against teen bullying to be superficial or even self-serving, I’ve got news for you. It’s potentially worse than that. With the greatest respect to the family of Amanda Todd, her tragic case isn’t representative of teen suicide any more than it is typical of high-school bullying. A clearer and more disturbing picture emerges from the latest report of B.C.’s Representative for Children and Youth, Mary Ellen Turpel-Lafond. It’s a survey of 89 child protection cases from 2007 to 2010, where 15 kids killed themselves and the rest inflicted serious self-injury, in some cases repeatedly. The word “bully” does not appear in the report. It speaks of domestic violence, physical and sexual abuse, addiction, and runaways targeted by street predators. Three quarters of the kids were removed from their

homes to protect them from their parents. More than half are aboriginal. Its key conclusion is that shifting traumatized and mentally ill teens from institutional care to foster homes isn’t working. Earnest but inadequately trained foster parents and social workers can’t cope with kids who need diagnosis, treatment and supervision. Without that, kids shuffled through foster homes an average of a dozen times in three years, with little attachment to home or school. Some were violent, no surprise given their formative years. I asked Turpel-Lafond about the B.C. government’s recent focus on bullying. She said it’s worthwhile, and there are parallels between Amanda’s case and more common teen suicides. One is isolation at moments of crisis. “Say you’re a middleclass parent with a child who hasn’t come out of their bedroom in six months, or you have a boy in foster care who’s in his 14th home,” she said. “They both want to

kill themselves, so what do you do?” Ideally, you intervene and get them to a child psychologist. Parents or guardians who can’t afford $150 an hour can wait months for the Ministry of Children and Family Development to arrange it. And in the meantime, our supposedly family-based foster care system sends them to school. “I’m really worried about how [school-based anti-bullying programs] will affect the most vulnerable kids, because you start anonymously reporting someone as being a bully,” Turpel-Lafond said. “Yeah, we know they’re in the youth justice system. We know they’re troubled. By the way, they’ve been sexually and physically abused, jumped through 30 foster homes, and now we want to label them again?” This is not to suggest that the existing B.C. effort isn’t substantial. The ministry reports that there are 2,221 front-line staff positions, of which 219 are currently vacant. It’s notoriously difficult to recruit, train and keep child protection workers,

especially in remote communities. Turpel-Lafond says her latest figures show the child and youth mental health service has 476 staff, with 21 vacancies and a government-wide hiring freeze. And many of those are doing double duty as community service managers. Those managers don’t even have reliable data on case loads, she said. They just know they’re overwhelmed and many of the kids aren’t being reached. This is not about political blame. I can trace this problem back to when Grace McCarthy was children’s minister, and the NDP did no better. I’ve learned a bit about Riverview and Tranquille, asylums that were closed because of a modern belief that they were inhumane. At least they offered safety and medical care to even the most damaged people. Right now our enlightened, progressive society can’t even help most of the kids we know are at high risk.

Your community needs you

To the Editor: Your community wants you Have you volunteered to help an organization recently? Many people get involved with charities and fund raising for great causes and find that contributing their time is most rewarding. The citizens of the Lower Similkameen Valley are generous when it comes time to donate money and others prefer to donate their time. However, there are other organizations that want new members on their Boards and Committees to help with the planning of events and the running of their organizations. Similkameen Country Development Association is one such organization. Many of you know the great events that go on in Keremeos each year – Canada Day, The Similkameen Sizzle Pepperfest, Taste of the Valley and Christmas Light-up. These events

continue because of the generous donations from our local businesses and the dedicated volunteers. Additionally, Similkameen Country acts as the Chamber of Commerce for the area and is responsible for promoting tourism and operating the Tourist Information Centre. The current Board members and the volunteer committee members have spent many years making sure that the organization continues to provide good service to its members and producing great annual events. While they have found their experience very rewarding, some of those volunteers need a rest and want to step back for a year or two. That’s where you come in. Every organization appreciates having members join them who can offer fresh ideas and provide new energy to their operation and the events they

sponsor. Most of you will agree that the Pepperfest offers a fun and enjoyable day for the whole family and attracts many people outside the Valley. This year several Sizzle Committee members will be stepping down as will a few long-time board members. Similkameen Country and the various Event Committees are well organized and are able to make their tasks enjoyable and rewarding. If you feel you have a special talent or experience in decision making, organizing and promoting, then Similkameen Country wants you – particularly, if you are interested in becoming a board member, as their AGM is this month. Please call Colleen at 250 4995225 to find out more information and to ensure that our annual events continue. Carroll MacLean, Keremeos

Wayward cat’s wanderings has resident wondering To the Editor: The cat in the Review, (page9, Nov.15 issue) found on Thursday, November 8 was found by me on Tuesday, November 6 in the Valu Plus parking lot adjacent to Valley First Credit Union. The cat seemed very relieved to have been “found”. I put it in my vehicle and took it home. I put up notices in town on Wednesday and the owners and their two dogs picked it up late Wednesday afternoon. They told me

the cat had been given to them by a friend a day or two before and I suggested it be kept inside for two weeks to adjust to its new home. To get where I found it, the cat had to cross both Seventh Avenue and Seventh Street. I wonder where the cat is now? I was very upset to see the cat’s picture in the paper. Michelle Bishop, Keremeos

Generosity apparent in the Lower Similkameen once again this year To the Editor: Christmas came early this year to the Cawston Food Bank. The leadership class at Similkameen Elementary Secondary School collected nearly 1,000 items of food on Halloween night. As you know, we were unable to open in September due to a shortage of food and funds. This will go a long way towards rectifying this situation.

The food donation has also brought Valley First Credit Union a step closer to winning the $6,500 shopping cart contest. They have collected over 100 shopping carts of food for the food bank since the contest began. It runs until the end of December and now with the Christmas Hamper Fund on side with us, along with Valley First Credit Union, we should be well on our way to success.

Jenifer from Similkameen Pharmacy has generously donated several gift certificates for food at Valu Plus. They will certainly be put to good use by the recipients. Jenifer’s generosity is greatly appreciated. Let’s make this a great Christmas for everyone. Ingrid Percival, Cawston Food Bank

Disgruntled voter finds little value in today’s politics To the Editor: I am trying to get my mind set on writing about something positive in today’s world of politics. Unfortunately, I am having no success, as each day I read about the political negatives that creep out through the cracks in the floor. My Christmas wish could be, that all we peons can learn fiscal management on how to be as honest and transparent as the big number two spender of all MLAs - MLA Bill Barisoff and his $46,410 expense account. Great time to retire before the “S’ really hits the fan Billy Boy! Strange as it may seem - all things do eventually come out in the wash so - it seems. There should be a probationary period of six months for all those elected to show their preelection platform colors in action. D o wh at t h e y

tooted or get the agony and embarrassment of being booted. Politicians hold the biggest bucket full of sleaze that has no equal with no end in sight to tap off its overflow. How do I find a hang - on - my - coat-tails management committee to support my bare ride- minus honour - regard for truth and honesty - yet alone - heaven forbid - transparency ?

Cawston to present “A Christmas Chaos” by Michael Wehrli Contributed A local theatre company has gone to great lengths to bring the Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC) to their venue to perform Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol”. Unfortunately, the RSC ends up clear across the country leaving this rag-tag group of theatre people to throw together their own version of the show. After trying to stall the audience for a while with a series of false starts and apologies, the entire cast and crew come out on stage to explain the situation to the audience. We meet the pretentious writer, the flustered director, the hard-nosed stage manager, the “professional” actor playing Scrooge, and a myriad of other “theatrical types” that theatre companies and audiences will recognize immediately. It quickly becomes apparent that this group is far from ready to put on a show. All sorts of last minute chaos ensues. As they are preparing for the show to begin, we find out what’s happening backstage: there are two child actors vying for the role of Tiny Tim; there’s an extremely flighty and confused crew member who believes she is in the cast; two cast members who are very unhappy with each other; and others who are struggling to make the best of the situation. Eventually, all is in readiness and the production begins. The writer serves as the “narrator”while the director sits in the audience and occasionally bellows out directions when things go awry. Even the light and sound board operators are characters in the show and occasionally call down from the booth to offer their apologies and comments. Throughout the chaos, the “professional” actor playing Scrooge does his best to maintain his composure while everything is going to pieces around him.The play within the play (Dickens’ A Christmas Carol) follows all the events in the classic novel. But our rag-tag group of theatre people are hopelessly inadequate to the task of telling this familiar tale. W ATM NO LE! B A L I A AV

During the course of their show, everything that can go wrong does: Set pieces, props and costumes look as if they were thrown together; scene changes are wild and chaotic; sound effects are off; etc. But the real humor of the show comes from the actors and crew members doing their best to make the show work. There is Nan, who is forced into a role and ends up freezing on stage - forcing the Stage Manager to sneak up behind her and speak her lines (while moving Nan’s arms as if gesturing). There is Duane, a complete goofball who takes calls on his cell phone during the show (when he’s not over-acting). There is Pamela who frequently “loses”herself in her roles and gets dramatic to the point of absurdity. Brynn, who after taking a strong antihistamine is so addled that she believes she is in the play - but not sure which one! She enters from time to time in various costumes ad-libbing lines from various other roles including; Huckleberry Finn, Anne Of Green Gables, Dracula, Hamlet, and others. There is a horrendously bad singer that forces Scrooge to lose his cool. Linda, who after Duane faints, has to take on both the roles of Bob and Mrs. Cratchit (using a half and half costume). Worst of all, both of the youth actors come on stage to play Tiny Tim during the Cratchit’s scene, forcing the family to adapt. On top of all the actor mishaps, there is also the valiant crew that struggles to do their jobs. Lyssa, the hard-nosed stage manager who has to bare the brunt of the director’s frustrations. The inept crew whose scene changes are chaotic and wild. Megan and Johanna the board operators that are more interested in the latest episode of a current reality television show than the play they are working. And on and on. The show plays through the entire story of “A Christmas Carol” and ends with the actors exhausted but pleased they survived the experience! Friday

Team building at SESS A team building exercise is ongoing at Similkameen Elementary Secondary School. Last Friday, four house teams that began last year held a pep rally in the elementary school gym. The teams, sporting their recently acquired T shirts -“Inferno”, “Tornado”, “Blizzard”, and “Earthquake”- introduced their themes and team chant to each other, using up a lot of energy in the process. “It’s a team building exercise that started last year. We made the teams up out of different grades to provide a different structure for the students,” explained elementar y school instructor Rick Johnson.

Lower Similkameen mourns loss of well known residents Contributed

Grandson of Similkameen Pioneer Passes

Kenny Richter passed away suddenly on Tuesday of November 13 at the age of 64 at the Penticton Hospital, surrounded by family members. Kenny was the youngest son of his infamous father Hans, whose father Frances Xavier initially homesteaded in the Cawston area. After the passing of his father and mother Sarah (nee Marcel) by the time he was 13 years of age, growing up in Cawston was pretty rough at times. Several of his brothers and sisters, however, stepped up to fill the gap. As was his father before him, Kenny was a rodeo man. For many years, in fact right up to the mid 2000s, he actively participated in his specialty of saddle bronc riding, earning his place as an excellent cowboy. The past Labor Day celebrations in Wint h ro p fo u n d him judging what he knew best. Active to the very end, he was always on the move. As did the first Richter boys, his uncles, and his father before him he carried the torch Kenny Richter we l l a n d wa s

Kenny and his wife, Shirley, were together committed to their children; he was definitely a family man.

RDOS telecommunications study unveiled to board System inadequate and out of date, board told By Steve Arstad news@keremeosreview. com

T

he 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 ad-

dition 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 dollars 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.

Milky Way headed for a cosmic collision

P

recise measurements made with the Hubble Space Telescope and other instruments leave no doubt about it. Our galaxy, The Milky Way, is heading for an almost head-on collision with the Great Galaxy in Andromeda. Both galaxies are very roughly the same size, containing billions of stars and a huge amount of gas and dust. Cosmic collisions do not get much larger than this. The two galaxies are currently about 2.5 million light years

apart and approaching each other at about 300 km/sec. They are gravitationally tugging at each other, which will increase the speed as they get closer together. The collision will happen in just under four billion years. Since our Sun will have become a red giant star by then and fried any of our descendents still hanging around on Earth, this is not something we really need to worry about. A collision between galaxies hitting at such a speed conjures up a vision of unimaginable destruction. In truth the situation is nowhere nearly as bad as that. Galaxies are mostly nearly-empty space. Stars are so far apart that it is very unlikely any of them will collide. The galaxies will more or less slide through each other. The items

that will collide will be those huge but tenuous clouds of cosmic gas and dust between the stars. However, the main consequence of those collisions will be the destabilization of those clouds, making them much more likely to collapse, forming new stars. So the collision will result in a burst of new star creation, not destruction. An astronomer observing from another galaxy will see the two galaxies coalesce into one big galaxy. The two spiral galaxies will become one large elliptical galaxy. There is evidence of this. Firstly we are observing collisions in their various stages between other galaxies, and secondly we have the dramatic results coming from computer simulations. In principle these calculations are very simple. We use the

health health

equations derived by Isaac Newton. If he were around today, he would understand exactly what is going on. We are simply looking at the gravitational attractions bodies exert on each other. The problem is that there are billions of bodies upon which we have to apply those simple equations. To really see what goes on when galaxies collide we have to calculate for each star the effect of the gravitational attraction of the billions of other stars. We then update the position, speed and direction in which each star is moving and then to do the whole thing again, over and over. This involves billions of billions of calculations. Fortunately there are supercomputers that can this. At first we just see the Andromeda Galaxy getting closer.

Then around four billion years from now we see the Milky Way starting to be pulled out of shape by the gravity of the approaching galaxy. By about seven billion years both galaxies will be completely disrupted. The bits will fall back together so that around seven billion years from now, The Milky Way and Andromeda Galaxies will be one, huge, elliptical ball of stars. In a way it’s a shame we won’t be around to see all this. Mars is very low in the Southwest after sunset. Jupiter rises around 5 p.m. and Venus around 5 a.m. The Moon will reach first quarter on the 20th.

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 back-roads of B.C., ¿sh, 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 ¿rewood, 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. Donations can be made to the Heart & Stroke Foundation, 1551 Sutherland Ave. Kelowna, B.C. V1Y 9M9

SCHUG

RENE ALBERT (SCHUGY): Passed away on November 7, 2012. Born August 13, 1934 in Provost AB to Robert and Marie Schug, Rene was predeceased by brothers Raynold, Emile and Andy and is survived by brother Fred and sister Nelline Shiels. Rene’s family moved to Keremeos in the early 1940s, where he lived until the mid-50s. Rene is survived by Lorna, his wife of 58 years and children, Debbie, Doug, Larry and Angela, and their families. Rene worked at the Powell River and Port Alberni pulp mills. In 1968 he purchased the Sea Edge Motel in Parksville. His happy nature and love of life kept him younger than his years, and ¿nally, it was his big heart that gave out, and he slipped away from us much too soon. Donations to the Heart and Stroke Foundation appreciated.

Common-law couples – 10 financial factors you need to know Common-law couples – 10 financial factors you need to know If you’re in a common-law relationship, it’s becoming more “common”. The latest Census figures show that the number of Canadian common-law couples rose 13.9% between 2006 and 2011 – that’s about 4 ½ times the rate of growth for married couples (at 3.1%)1. Your professional advisor can tell you the specific financial issues relating to common-law relationships. Here are 10 to consider: 1. According to the federal Income Tax Act, a couple is considered to be in a common-law relationship if they have lived together in a conjugal relationship for a period of twelve months or have lived together for a shorter time but are raising a child together. For income tax purposes, they are treated the same as a married couple. 2. If you meet the test for being considered a common-law couple under the Income Tax Act (Canada), be sure to file your income tax returns as a couple. Filing as individual could result in consequences related to filing a false return, and could also potentially result in the loss of various federal benefits, including the CPP survivor benefit. 3. The law in many provinces does not give commonlaw couples the same rights as married couples. For example, in Alberta, New Brunswick, Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, Ontario, Prince Edward Island, Québec and the Yukon, common-law partners whose relationship breaks down do not have any statutory right to a division of property, no matter how long they have lived together. 4. You and your common-law partner should discuss how you will reconcile your individual financial objectives, resources and obligations should your relationship come to an end. Consider writing down your intentions regarding a potential division of assets in a cohabitation agreement. Attach your agreement to a list of each partner’s assets and personal effects. 5. Discuss how much you expect to spend, save and invest and who will manage your shared finances, including paying the bills and splitting household expenditures. 6. Make sure you each have a valid will that reflects your rights to property division in your province of residence. Given the frequency of changes in the law in this area, it’s crucial that you speak to your legal and financial advisors regularly and update as required. 7. Review and revise as necessary the beneficiaries for your life insurance policies and registered investment plans.

MANAGING Your Money 8. Designate a power of attorney to act for you should you become mentally incompetent. 9. If you have children from a previous relationship, be sure that they are included in your estate plan. Leaving everything to your new spouse through direct beneficiary designations could inadvertently disinherit your children. You should speak to your legal and financial advisors to ensure your children are covered. 10. Don’t make the ‘common’ mistake of solving all your financial complexities on your own. Professional financial and legal advisors can also be your effective partner in achieving all your life goals.
