Crime stats show decline in most offences During the third quarter of 2012 the majority of offences were lower or close to the same as in the third quarter of 2011. Decreases range from 17 to 88 percent. Lisa Carleton lisa@similkameenspotlight.com

Sgt. Dave Clare of the Princeton RCMP presented the third quarter statistics to Mayor and Council during the regular meeting of Council on Nov. 19. The majority of selected offences were either close to the same or lower than that of the third quarter of 2011. The only category to show a significant increase was ‘theft from vehicles’ - to date this year an increase of 60 percent compared to 2011. Most often the thefts have been from unlocked vehicles. From July to September 2012, Princeton RCMP investigated seven founded drug offences. Crystal Meth, Crack Cocaine and Marihuana continue to be a concern in Princeton. Traffic safety issues remained a problem during the third quarter as 10 drivers were issued 90 Day Immediate Roadside Prohibitions, one driver issued a 24-hour suspension for alcohol use, one driver was issued a 3 Day Immediate Roadside Prohibition and one driver was charged with impaired driving under the Criminal Code. The Princeton RCMP had a very busy few months supporting community events during this quarter. Members enjoyed participating in a Bocce tournament with Special Olympics Princeton, the Air Show, Canada Day celebrations in Princeton and Hedley, a Golf tournament to support the

B.C. Ambulance Service has decided to pull the ambulance and crew it has had stationed at Big White Ski Resort in previous years and relocate it to Lake Country.

Big White Ski Resort looses Ambulance Kevin Parnell Black Press

For the first time in 20 years, the Big White Ski Resort will not have a B.C. Ambulance stationed at the ski hill this season. Management at the resort are questioning the decision by the B.C. Ambulance Service to pull the ambulance just weeks before the opening of another ski season. After an operational review of ambulance services in the Kelowna area, the B.C. Ambulance Service (BCAS) decided to relocate the ambulance that had been deployed at Big White in past years and station it in Lake Country. “This change will not result in a reduction in service for the region,” stated the BCAS in an email to the Capital News, the Spotlight’s sister newspaper. “In fact, the amount of time

that the paramedics will be actively providing patient care is expected to increase two or three times compared to when the ambulance was based at Big White.” BCAS also stated that in past years the ambulance at Big White was responding to just one call per day and was only in operation for half the year while it will now provide year-round coverage to the Okanagan Valley area. But the decision to remove the ambulance from Big White is causing concern at the resort which sees more than 600,000 skier visits each season. “This is a bad decision and it needs to be over-turned,” said Michael Ballingall, Big White’s senior vice-president of sales and marketing.

Traditional books aren’t being replaced by new technology. Richard Rolke

Circulation of print materials is down three per cent within Okanagan Regional Library, while the download of audiobooks has almost doubled. However, executive director Lesley Dieno says the agency still circulates three million print items a year. “Lots of people, and especially teens, want print,� she said. “They (teens) read computers and phones all day long and when they are ready for pleasure, they want print.� There is also a growing demand within print materials for books with large type and languages other than English. But many ORL patrons are embracing the latest in technology. “So far this year, 83,000 ebooks have been downloaded,� said Dieno. Other services are also proving popular. The number of downloads of music from the Freegal database is up 80 per cent and the collection of magazines from Zinio is being used at a high rate. “But we are still circulating CDs. That hasn’t declined,� said Dieno. With increasing demands for reading material and music in various forms, financial pressures are being placed on ORL. “We’re just adding things on, we’re not getting rid of anything,� said Dieno. “Libraries have to provide something of everything.�

Doctor recruitment packages making the rounds throughout Canada Lisa Carleton lisa@similkameenspotlight.com

Two entrepreneurial and energetic women were retained by the directors of the Save our Similkameen Association (SOS) to create what is known as “Doctor Recruitment Packages.” Dierra Maynard and Robin Lowe-Irwin are well known throughout the community and have showcased their talents and abilities as well as their dedication to the community numerous times through participation in and promotion of Princeton’s events as well as joining in problem solving tasks for Princeton issues. “They are perfect candidates for the job,” said SOS director Darrell Dobie, “They know the community very well.” Maynard and Lowe-Irwin have spent a great deal of time putting these packages together. The

packages include detailed information about the activities and services available in Princeton and outlying communities. Businesses have included gift certificates as well. Along with the “Experience, Live, Adventure, Explore and Relax” folder, the recruitment pack also contains the 10 minute film on Princeton and areas that was produced by Red Rock Productions and shown during the Alex Atamenenko MP Forum held earlier this month. “Anyone who is working on the doctor issue is happy with the packages,” said Dobie, “The ladies have done a stellar job.” The packages are being and have been sent to various Continuing Medical Education conventions throughout Canada. “We are generating interest from Toronto and Vancouver so far, said Dobie, “If we can get a couple more doctors, we can open the E.R. and then we can just go home.”

CRIME STOPPERS-Crime of the Week At approximately 3:00 p.m., on Nov. 17, 2012 unknown persons stole three rifles from an unlocked camper trailer on Eckhardt Avenue in Penticton. Two of these guns were chained and padlocked together. Two males were seen in the immediate area around the time of this crime. They are described as 25 - 30 years old, with one being approximately 6’2”, slim build, dark hair with a few days of whiskers on his face and was wearing a hoodie and reddish orange jacket. The second male was approximately the same age, slim build and about 5’9” tall. Anyone with information on the person/s responsible for this crime is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS) or “http://www.southokanagancrimestoppers.ca” for other anonymous ways of passing information on.

and marketing. “The last thing we want is to have someone suffer because the ambulance service is so far away or, God forbid, someone passes away because the medical services are unavailable.” Ballingall said he has anecdotal evidence of the need for the ambulance, including one email he received from a skier who suffered a heart attack in a lift line before being attended to by BCAS paramedics and taken to hospital in the ambulance. “If it had not been for the immediate care and attention I received from the EMS at Big White and in the ambulance down to Kelowna General, I could very well not be here today,” wrote the man, who Ballingall said asked to remain anonymous. Ballingall has met with local politicians asking that they look into the situation. He also said BCAS call numbers at Big White are skewed to the low side as many people opt to call the Big White Ski Patrol if they are injured, instead of calling 911. In an e-mail, a BCAS official

stated that Big White was the only ski hill in British Columbia to have an ambulance station based at the resort and that the new service model is in line with how BCAS provides service to other ski resorts in B.C. It said that Big White residents and visitors will continue to receive ambulance service via ground from Kelowna and by a helicopter based in Kamloops, with medical care being offered by the Big White Ski Patrol and local first responders until an ambulance arrives. But Ballignall said it wasn’t good enough. “In B.C. our safety net is not private enterprise it’s the B.C. Ambulance,” he said. “The Ski Patrol is a professional, volunteer organization and they don’t have the equipment, the qualifications or the licenses to do what a B.C. Ambulance can do. This is going to put undo stress on volunteers and paid members of our staff.” B.C. Ambulance says it will continue to monitor call volumes in the Kelowna area and make changes to the services as required.

Council adopts snow removal policy Lisa Carleton lisa@similkameenspotlight.com

The snow removal policies for Princeton have been reviewed and updated. On Nov. 19, Council adopted Snow Removal Policy 010-2012. There are three changes to the snow removal processes; If town receives an accumulation of 150 millimeters (six inches) of snow overnight, the snow blower will be used beginning at 5 a.m. , on Bridge Street and Vermilion Avenue, between Nov. 1 and March 31, Bridge Street and Vermilion Avenue will be posted as “No Parking” between 11 p.m., and 8 a.m., so as to not interfere with snow removal —violators vehicles will be removed at the owners expense and residents are asked that when clearing your sidewalk or driveway pile the snow on the left side of the driveway (oriented if you are facing your property). Residents are instructed not to place snow onto the municipal road. Violations of the snow removal policy may result in fines. The full policy is available at Town Hall or visit the town website at www.princeton. ca under “What’s New” to view the policy. Lease Agreement The Similkameen Mason Association has leased the building located at 187 Vermilion Ave., from the Town of Princeton since 2002. The lease agreement has been updated to current standards and was presented to Council. Councillor Jason Earle asked if there was any other interest in or requests for use of the build-

ing and Councillor Harkness asked if there were costs to the town for upkeep or renovations. Deputy Treasurer, Shirley McMahon explained that “there were no other requests for use of the building,” and that the Mason Association, “did all renovations and upkeep at their own expense.” Council agreed to enter into a lease with the Similkameen Mason Association for the exclusive use of the Masonic Hall located at 187 Vermilion Avenue. This is a standard lease agreement for five years with the option to renew for a further two five year terms —tenant remaining responsible for all other costs. Christmas Store and Light Up The Princeton and District Chamber of Commerce asked that Council waive the Business License Fee in order to assist them in their quest to promote home based businesses and crafters while promoting shopping locally. The building will be in use for the Christmas season only. Council waived the $300 license fee for the Chamber Christmas Store located at 219 Vermilion Ave. Council also agreed to support the Christmas Light Up and Santa’s Visit on Dec. 1 from 4 until 7 p.m. Town will cover the insurance, provide barricades, the Town tent, snow fencing, power, extension cords, lighting and decorations, sound system and granted permission for use of burn barrels. Mayor Armitage will give the community welcome and signal for light up to begin.

SpotlightOPINION A blow to Marijuana laws Staff Writer Black Press

A study released this month has revealed the cost the failed war on drugs is having on the British Columbia economy. A new study by a coalition of researchers from the University of British Columbia and Simon Fraser University estimates the B.C. cannabis market could provide the government with $2.5 billion in tax and licensing revenues over the next five years. “If you begin to stand back and calculate just how much potential tax revenue is instead going to fuel organized crime, it really highlights how we need to start questioning our current approach,” said Dr. Evan Wood, senior author of the study. The study is just the latest blow against those who remain committed to preserve and protect the profit margins of organized crime. The study challenges one of the primary arguments against regulating marijuana: that the market cannot be taxed. Critics had previously pointed to U.S. drug laws as a reason why B.C. shouldn’t move towards decriminalization. But when Colorado and Washington state voters approved the legalization of marijuana use, that argument went up in smoke. “When you look at the enormous potential to save on policing costs, raise government revenue and wage economic war on organized crime, you understand why U.S. states have recently taken the taxation and regulation approach,” said former B.C. premier Ujjal Dosanjh. The list of those calling for changes to marijuana laws has grown to include those from across the political spectrum. The Union of B.C. Municipalities passed a resolution earlier this year calling for the decriminalization of marijuana. Stop the Violence B.C. is a group of B.C. law enforcement officials, politicians, legal experts and public health officials advocating changes to the government’s marijuana policies. It seems the only ones left still supporting the current drug laws are those who make their living in organized crime — and their unwitting allies in the provincial and federal governments.

To the Grinch(s) who literally stole Christmas Dear Editor, My husband and I were newlyweds that December 1972 evening when we received a knock on the door of our basement apartment. Opening the door I was greeted by a grateful lady who I had done unpaid genealogical research for. Along with a smile she handed me a brightly wrapped box with a note. Christmas morning comes and under our little tree there is a meager amount of presents, I think three and this box was there waiting along with the other two. I open it and was pleased to see a Mr. and Mrs. Snowman that the lady had crafted. I remember how it made me feel to see them and I put them out on the table to enjoy and every year, since have enjoyed taking them out of the Christmas box and thinking back to that time so many years ago. Except this year which would have made 40 years. Going into the basement I found to my dismay all Christmas decorations and the Christmas tree gone. The special box with my memories gone along with Mr. and Mrs. Snowman. Gone are the ornaments my piano students gave me, gone are the orna-

ments my daughter gave me with one saying To Mom with the year and the other To Garry who has since passed away. Gone are the other special ornaments that I have collected and lovingly took out and hung on the various trees and put back on New Years Eve. No Superstorm Sandy nor devastating fire took my precious belongings. Only some heartless person helped themselves to them. I can only say they will not have the same meanings when hung on some other tree and Mr. and Mrs. Snowman, well, they may have even been thrown away. There will be no Christmas tree this year because there is nothing in the stores that interest me. No boxes of pretty ornaments have those special memories attached. If someone reading this knows about this box please return it. You know where it comes from and you will only be greeted with tears of joy. Nora Sutton Princeton

Both sides should have equal opportunity Dear Editor; “There are always two sides to every story”. When there is a dispute/disagreement between two individuals or a group shouldn’t both sides give an account of what happened? If only one side is heard and taken as gospel then the other party could be alienated when this occurs, friendships/partnerships become estranged—all because one side was not given the opportunity to give their version. Something to think about.

President Paul Bedard called the Annual General Meeting of the Princeton Exhibition Society (PXA) to order at 7 p.m., on Tuesday, Nov. 20 in the conference room at the Princeton Library. Bedard noted that for the few people that had taken responsibility throughout the past year, “they had done a pretty darned good job.” The PXA are proud of the accomplishments over the past year including; upgrades of fenc250-295-7381 ing, washrooms, wheelchair access, building cosmetics and the renovation of the concession. Currently they are working on acquiring estimates to have the concession stands evaluated. The user groups all reported having had successful events and special mention Gourmet Baker Slab Cakes was made on the phenomenal turn out for $6.49 Reg. $12.99

Halloween Family Fun Night this year. Bedard extended his appreciation to the members saying, “Thank you for what you’ve all contributed.” On a sadder note, Bedard read aloud a letter of resignation from long-standing member Carol Ruoss, whom regrettably due to health reasons resigned from the PXA. Ruoss’s contributions and many years of service to the PXA are greatly appreciated. “She will be missed,” said Bedard. Councillor Doug Pateman was then introduced to officiate the elections. Councillor Pateman began by thanking the PXA board for, “allowing me to help out this year.” “If there is anything you require from Council and Mayor, just ask,” he said. By acclamation, Councillor Pateman introduced Paul Bedard as president and Danny Kastor as vice president of the Princeton and District Exhibition Association. Dawn Johnson was appointed secretary and Fran Murphy appointed as treasurer. The directors remain as in 2011; Ken Crompton, Karrie Crucil, Fran Murphy, Dawn Johnson, Lisa Carleton and Della Osborne.

“Walk away, ignore, talk it out and seek help.” WITS Contributed Sharleen Anderson

Last week all students at John Allison Elementary School stood and took an oath to try their best to make their school happy and safe. The WITS anti-bullying program that was launched teaches students some strategies to dealing with bullying. The WITS acronym stands for Walk away, Ignore, Talk it out, and Seek Help. Over the course of the year, students will be introduced to a variety of books which will reinforce those concepts. Classes will discuss these issues and review how to use your “wits”. Students will also receive periodic visits from high visibility community members to check that students are remembering what to do. (I hear the Posse are among the slated guests!) This program was devised by a concerned group of students from the University of Victoria. It was introduced to all JAE students by librarian, Mrs. Anderson, and counsellor, Mrs. Illingworth. Principal, Mr. Clarke, led the students in taking the oath. A   special guest appearance was made by RCMP Constable Oliver. Good job, students!

A message for you from the Princeton & District Chamber of Commerce We encourage all business owners to shop local and check out the Chamber Christmas Store for Home Based Businesses and Crafters. On November 22, 2012 the Princeton & District Chamber of Commerce opened the Christmas Store at 219 Vermilion Ave. (the old Similkameen Sunshine building beside Fields.). This is to give home based businesses and crafters the opportunity to have a storefront location to display and sell their wares. This initiative was developed to give residents a wider shopping experience for the Christmas season in hopes they will shop local! Princeton is host to many and various types of businesses. It is the objective of the Chamber to promote and encourage local business as well to encourage residents to do their shopping locally.  More money is kept in the community when you shop local rather than shopping in a big-box store. Businesses who sell locally, often purchase local as well.  Businesses that are unique help to create the character and prosperity that is enjoyed by all in the community. Local businesses provide employment for residents who then in turn spend within their community which helps to create economic stability. Local businesses are invested in their communities, they are generally run by people who live locally, are less likely to leave and care about the community’s welfare

and future.  Local business owners and managers also donate and support local charities. Take a stroll through your community. Have a look at what the Christmas Store and what your local businesses have to offer, and remember when you support your local business you are supporting the community in which you live. The Princeton and District Chamber of Commerce extends an invitation to all to join us for the Princeton Christmas Light Up and Santa’s Visit celebration on Saturday, Dec. 1. Come and enjoy an afternoon shopping experience in between participating in the Light Up festivities. There will be an opportunity to warm up at the fire pits located at Veterans Square, the Princeton Plaza Mall and outside of the Source on Bridge Street. Enjoy hot chocolate, popcorn, goodies, a roasted marshmallow or two and the entertainment taking place. On Dec. 1 as well, pick up your Christmas Shopping Passport and get your stamps at participating stores throughout the community. (Double stamps on Dec. 1 only) We encourage you to shop local this Christmas Season and throughout the year! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all of you from The Princeton and District Chamber of Commerce.

Crimson Tine Players present A Christmas Story Crimson Tine Players is once again preparing a great family comedy just in time for the Christmas season. “A Christmas Story” is set in the 1940s and is the wonderful story of Ralphy, who really wants a Blue Rider Bee Bee Gun for Christmas. The cast is mostly kids and teens and they are having a great time getting this play ready for all of us. Be sure to plan to attend one of the performances at the Riverside Center and get yourselves in the Christmas spirit. Six performances are planned – Nov. 30, evening show, a matinee on Dec. 1, and evening show on December 1, The following weekend; Friday and Saturday nights as well as a Saturday matinee. Tickets are $10 for children, students and seniors, and $15 for adults. The Dec. 1 matinee is “Pay what you can,” so bring the whole gang for the 2 p.m., show. Tickets are available at the door and at Shoppers Drug Mart and the Sunflower Gallery. Looking forward to seeing you for one of these great performances. Please come out and support our local community theatre.

Roasted Pork With Glazed Peaches

Serves 4 1 center-cut bone-in-pork rib roast, about 5 pounds, well trimmed and chine bone removed (31/2 to 4 pounds trimmed weight) 6 small sprigs fresh rosemary 1 large yellow onion, coarsely chopped (11/4 cups) 2 small carrots, peeled and coarsely chopped (3/4 cup) 2 small ribs celery, trimmed and coarsely chopped (3/4 cup) 1 head garlic, loose papery outer skin removed, and cut in half horizontally 4 cups dry white wine, such as Pinot Grigio or Trebbiano 2 cups canned low-sodium stock Chestnut Honey Glazed Peaches (see below) Coarse sea salt Extra-virgin olive oil Sea salt with a pinch of dried or minced fresh rosemary leaves added, and freshly ground black pepper Preheat the oven to 375 F. Brush the pork with olive oil and season it liberally with rosemary salt and black pepper. Lay the rosemary sprigs on top of the roast and secure them in several places with butcher’s twine. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons of olive oil into a large heavy skillet or roasting pan and set it over high heat until almost smoking. Place the roast, fat side down, in the pan and sear it on all sides, including the

ends, until richly browned, about 10 minutes total cooking time. Add another tablespoon of oil to the pan along with the onion, carrots, celery, and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, for 3 to 4 minutes. Pour in 2 cups of the wine. Transfer the pan to the oven and cook until a meat thermometer inserted in the thickest part of the roast registers 150 F, 50 minutes to 1 hour. If the tops of the bones begin to burn, cover them with aluminum foil. Transfer the roast to a cutting board. Tent it lightly with foil and let it rest for 20 to 25 minutes for the juices to be reabsorbed. Meanwhile prepare the Chestnut Honey Glazed Peaches. On top of the stove, set the pan with the vegetables over medium heat. Pour in the remaining 2 cups of white wine, scraping up the brown bits on the bottom of the pan. Add t h e chicke n stock, raise t h e heat

CAPRICORN: Now is not the time to leap without looking, Capricorn. You have to be cautious with your choices and actions this time of the month. Don’t make waves so close to the holidays. AQUARIUS: Aquarius, although you do plenty, someone around the house could really use some more assistance from you. It may take some juggling of your schedule to accomplish. PISCES: Usually your outpouring of creative juices is unstoppable, Pisces. This week you could have a little trouble thinking up new ideas. ARIES: Aries, while there’s much about a situation that you don’t understand, you will quickly be filled in on all the details you need to know to get the job done. TAURUS: Taurus, confrontation will get you nowhere. It is better to avoid any troublesome parties and simply go on with your days. No need to put monkey wrenches in the plans. GEMINI: Take some time to reflect on what you need to get done, Gemini. Things are about to get more hectic, and it will help to know what is on your schedule in the coming days. CANCER: There is no need to put off romantic endeavors, Cancer. Make time to further relationships, and you will be happier for having made the additional effort. LEO: Leo, a casual encounter with an old friend goes by like no time has elapsed at all. Agree to keep in touch and spend more time together going forward. VIRGO: Virgo, there are too many messes to clean up, so instead of digging in you may just decide to procrastinate a little longer. Just be sure to make up the time later on. LIBRA: You may find that things that are beneficial for others may not always be beneficial for you, Libra. But often you have to make sacrifices for the benefit of the entire group. SCORPIO: Certain challenges may be tough to conquer, Scorpio. But with the right help you can get the job done. Gemini may be your shining light this week. SAGITTARIUS: There is no point in speculating about your finances, Sagittarius. Keep track of your deposits and withdrawals so you have a handle on all accounts. FOR ENTERTAINMENT ONLY

to high, and boil until the liquid is reduced by half. Season to taste with rosemary salt. Pour the liquid through a fine strainer, pressing on the vegetables to extract as much liquid as possible. Discard the vegetables. Skim off as much fat as possible and reserve the liquid. Remove the string and carve the roast between the chops. Serve the meat on a platter drizzled with some of the sauce. Add the peaches. Spoon a little sauce over them and sprinkle on sea salt. Serve family style and pass the extra sauce at the table. Chestnut Honey Glazed Peaches 2 tablespoons butter 6 firm, ripe unpeeled peaches, pitted and cut into eighths

1/3 cup chestnut or other honey 1/3 cup white wine vinegar 1 sprig fresh rosemary Heat the butter in a large skillet over high heat until melted and sizzling. Add the peaches and cook, shaking the pan often, until lightly browned on both sides, 3 to 4 minutes total. Spoon on the honey, stir to blend and cook until it has dissolved, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Pour in the vinegar, adjust the heat to medium-high and cook, stirring occasionally, for 2 to 3 minutes. Add the rosemary sprig and cook until the peaches are well glazed, 4 to 5 minutes more.

Her gentle spirit is with us, giving us strength and guiding us still. On reflection, her tremendous love for those around her defined her life. We feel blessed to have had this bounty, it defines our days. We honour her memory on November 28, 2012. Her loving spirit will be with us forever. Lovingly remembered and sadly missed.
