Judy Short president of Princeton Rotary graciously accepts a $10,000 cheque from mill manager Jeff Larsen on behalf of Weyerhaeuser Company Limited. This grant will bring Rotary closer to completing their quest to have a community kitchen at the Riverside Centre.

GRANT - continued from page 1 The $10,000 was given to Princeton Rotary in support of the Rotary Riverside Kitchen Project. The project has been underway for quite some time and these funds will go a long way in helping to complete the project. This money will fund the air intake for the stove and help to upgrade the electrical system. In closing Short adds, “Again we would like to thank Weyerhaeuser for being such a wonderful corporate donor to this community and for supporting Princeton Rotary.”

Copper Mountain announces 2013 production guidance Vancouver, British Columbia – December 21, 2012 – Copper Mountain Mining Corporation (TSX: CUM) (the “Company” or “Copper Mountain”) announces production guidance for the 2013 year from the Copper Mountain mine located in southern British Columbia. Copper Mountain is projecting 2013 production of approximately 80 million pounds of copper, 35,000 ounces of gold, and 315,000 ounces of silver. - Site cash cost are estimated to be (incl. mining, milling, maintenance, admin, and engineering) of $1.25 - $1.30 per pound of copper produced net of precious metal credits. (Calculated based on $ 3.40 /lb Cu, $1,500/oz Au and $28.50/oz Ag). Total cash costs (incl. site costs, smelting & refining, transportation, interest and taxes) are estimated to be between $1.80 - $2.00 per pound of copper produced net of precious metal credits. The mining rate is projected to continue at a rate of about 175,000 tonnes per day to provide 35,000 tonnes per day of mill feed. The forecast production is based on a head grade of approximately 0.35 percent copper. Mine site operating

costs are estimated to total approximately $13.65 per tonne milled with mining costs projected at $1.48 per tonne mined. From an operational point of view, the mine plans to continue to mine in both the Pit 2 and Pit 3 areas. Approximately 16 million tonnes of lower grade material will be stockpiled for processing towards the end of the mine life. The Company’s goal for 2013 is to continue to optimize performance of the Copper Mountain Mine, to maximize our copper production. Management plans to continue the exploration drilling for 2013 which will build from the 2012 exploration program. The 2012 exploration drilling has been focused along the western and northern edges of Pit 2, partly to expand the pit limits, test mineralization at depth and to infill gaps within the resource model. Exploration staff are continuing to cut the drill core from the 2012 exploration program and management expects to be in a position to comment on the second half 2012 exploration results during Q1 of 2013. Plans for the drill 2013 program will be finalized after the 2012 results are evaluated.

SpotlightOPINION

Benefit your bottom line this year Guest Editorial - Making New Year’s resolutions is a tradition for many men and women. Money can be a great motivator when it comes to resolutions, which may be most successful when they affect a person’s finances. The following are a few resolutions that may not be entirely about money, but can still save you big dollars in the long run. * Quit smoking. In addition to the medical benefits of quitting smoking, saying “so long” to cigarettes can also save men and women a substantial amount of money. Smokers who quit will no longer be spending $9 or more per pack of cigarettes, and quitting may also lower their health insurance premiums. * Pay more than the minimum on your installment loans. It might sound odd to pay more than you’re required each month in an effort to save money, but paying more than the minimum on installment loans, including student loans, mortgages and car payments, reduces the amount of interest you’re paying in the long run, shortening the length of the loan in the process. * Learn about finance. If you have little knowledge of finance and investing, then you are likely paying someone to handle your finances or maybe even storing your money beneath the mattress. Learning about finance, whether you learn on your own or take courses, can help you gain greater control of your finances. In addition, learning about finance can help you grow your money rather than having it collect dust under the mattress. * Eliminate your debt. Some resolutions are more popular than others, and eliminating debt is one of the more popular New Year’s resolutions. But some people don’t realize just how to eliminate debt. While it’s important to save money, high-interest debt should be eliminated as quickly as possible. For example, if you pay off a credit card that charges you 10 percent on your account balance with money you might have deposited into a savings account that earns just 1 percent interest, then you will have gotten a 9 percent return on your investment. It’s important to save money, but don’t do so at the expense of ignoring existing high-interest debt. New Year’s resolutions are not always easy to keep, but those that can positively affect your bottom line may be easier to live up to.

An invitation to attend a Smart Meter awareness meeting Dear Editor; I am writing to make people aware of the Smart Meter Public Meeting that will be held Jan.12 in Osoyoos. This meeting will help people to become more informed about the facts of Fortis’ wireless power “smart” meter and the concerns of the public of possible negative effects. The meeting will be held Saturday at 2 p.m. on Jan. 12 at the Sonora Centre 8505-68th Ave -located three blocks south of Main Street in Osoyoos. A similar meeting was held in Oliver in October that was attended by over 100 people. Many people are still wanting information about smart meters and this daytime meeting will make it easier for people from other towns of the Okanagan Similkameen area to attend. The speaker will be Jerry Flynn who is a retired Armed Forces Radiation Specialist who will explain the background of radiation use, and many of the studies done

by experts. Well over one thousand people in the Fortis area have signed petitions or sent emails to BC Utilities Commission requesting that Fortis be denied permission to install the Advanced Meter Infrastructure Project otherwise known as the Smart meter. Both the Oliver Town Council and the RDOS (Regional District of the Okanagan Similkameen) have recently voted to ask BCUC to deny the Fortis Application. Fortis can not go forward with this project without BCUC ‘s approval. Please come to this meeting to understand the potential health risks and increased cost of power.

JUST TO DIGEST YOUR FOOD. Another reason cystic fibrosis is so hard to swallow.

Not so Grimm Tales as told by teens

Photos contributed

A full house of audience members were treated to a great show filled with humour, truth and life lessons by the Princeton Secondary drama students production of Not so Grimm Tales held at the Riverside Theatre. The students performed versions, “spoofs” of Little Red Riding Hood, Snow White and Cinderella, under the direction of teacher Karla Friesen. Mother told her version of these stories in an effort to convince her dreamy daughter that no matter how badly she wanted to be a princess, she was a strong and independent young lady who could care for herself and did not need to be rescued by a prince charming or knight in shining armour. It was obvious that the audience enjoyed the show greatly, as the theatre roared with laughter on numerous occasions. Kudos to the PSS drama class—an excellent presentation.

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

BC Hydro

Smart meters are tested at a BC Hydro lab. More than 1.7 million of the meters have been installed.

Smart meter completion delayed

other structures that covered them. Some homeowners who refused replacement of mechanical meters now worry that they will be on the hook for costs if their old meter equipment fails after they refused the upgrade. BC Hydro spokesman Greg Alexis said the one-year delay, originally signalled in a November finance ministry update, doesn’t change the utility’s target of the 2014 fiscal year to implement the entire system. Meters are only a small part of a province-wide grid that will automatically report power outages and offer customers a real-time display of their power consumption. The Clean Energy Act was the culmination of former premier Gordon Campbell’s climate and energy strategy. It exempted the wireless meter project, the proposed Site C dam on the Peace River, and an array of private power proposals from scrutiny by the B.C. Utilities Commission. NDP energy critic John Horgan has said he supports a review of the wireless grid proposal and other major projects by the utilities commission.

Tom Fletcher Black Press

BC Hydro has been given another year to complete its wireless smart grid project, as it nears the original deadline with 140,000 smart meters still to be installed. Energy Minister Rich Coleman announced the extension of the Dec. 31, 2012 deadline imposed by the B.C. Liberal government’s Clean Energy Act. Pushed through the legislature in the spring of 2010, that legislation supports sweeping changes to BC Hydro’s expansion using wind, small hydro and other private power development. In a ministry statement, Coleman cited shortages of skilled labour, meters and other specialized equipment as well as “customer concerns� for failing to meet the deadline for all 1.87 million meters across the province. BC Hydro has been dogged by political and citizen protests about the cost of the refit and persistent claims of various hazards from the meters. Installers have also encountered meters made inaccessible by construction of garages, decks and
