Storm closes a number of B.C. highways Highway 3 west heading out of Princeton closed Wednesday morning due to poor road conditions brought on by storm. Lisa Carleton lisa@similkameenspotlight.com

Residents of Princeton were welcomed by quite the sight Wednesday morning while heading off to work or taking kids to school. Due to heavy snowfall throughout Jan. 8 through and into the morning of Jan. 9, Highway 3 west was closed early Wednesday morning joining numerous BC highway road closures. Large semi-trucks and a few travellers filled the parking lots of the Chevron and Husky stations and were lined up to the top of the hill of Highway 3 headed west of Princeton. A storm including heavy snowfall - about a meter in some areas and freezing rain along with threats of avalanches forced B.C. officials to close several major sections of highways. Highway 3 was closed from Hope to Allison Pass, west of Kootenay Pass and opened at approximately 10:30 a.m., on Wednesday morning. The Coquihalla Highway between Hope and Merritt was closed and reopened for travel Wednesday afternoon. Drive BC issued travel advisories for several of the mountain highways including the Coquihalla. Keep up with the latest road conditions and advisories by visiting www.drivebc.ca

Princeton receives Age-friendly BC grant Lisa Carleton lisa@similkameenspotlight.com

Princeton has been approved for a $20,000 grant by the age-friendly planning and project grant program, a partnership between the government of B.C. and the Union of British Columbia Municipalities (UBCM). The grants are provided by UBCM to help establish or continue a variety of projects that support healthy, active seniors. Seniors in Princeton and throughout the province will benefit as 27 communities receive grants of up to $20,000 to help create programs or tools that address the needs of their older residents.

Princeton

In a press release issued on Jan. 8, president of the Union of British Columbia Municipalities, Mary Sjostrom stated, “As local governments come to grips with aging populations, there is a need to rethink the range of services we provide and how they are delivered. This program is helping communities around the province to improve policies and services for seniors.” The UBCM staff and the Ministry of Health reviewed and scored applications on a variety of factors including: goals, proposed activities, involvement of seniors and other key partners, budget, and innovation and sustainability.

PRINCETON, BC (Jan. 10, 2013) – On Dec. 21, 2012, a very significant safety milestone was achieved in the forests around Princeton. The entire Weyerhaeuser Princeton Timberlands organization – contractors and employees – celebrated going two years of working without a recordable injury. “This is quite an achievement,� says Rob Marshall, manager of Weyerhaeuser’s Timberlands organization in Princeton. “Weyerhaeuser has a vision of having an injury-free workplace so everyone can go home safe and sound every day. Forestry work has many hazards, but they have shown it can be done safely. These are world-class results and very few forestry organizations can make this claim.� This safety accomplishment includes an average of 120 people working in the woods operation every day. They are involved in all aspects of forestry work: planning, timber cruising, road construction, road maintenance, harvesting, hauling, planting, scaling and surveying. “I give a lot of credit to the Weyerhaeuser staff, the contractors and their employees for all working hard on all the little things that make up a safe working environment,� said Marshall. “Everyone should feel proud they work in an operation with this kind of safety record.� Marshall noted that on Dec. 21, 2011, they had celebrated one year of working without an injury. “That was new territory for us,� he commented. “We had never gone a full year without someone getting hurt on the job. Now, we are two years without a recordable injury.� (In general, a recordable injury is a work-related injury that requires medical attention from a health professional.) Fred Dzida, Director of Canadian Timberlands for Weyerhaeuser, added his congratulations. “Recognizing the challenging conditions we have all faced during the past few years, this is a huge accomplishment,� says Dzida. The Weyerhaeuser Timberlands organization is responsible for forestry operations on 424,000 hectares of forest in the Princeton and Okanagan Falls areas that support the Weyerhaeuser sawmill in Princeton. Weyerhaeuser Company, one of the world’s largest forest products companies, began operations in 1900. We grow and harvest trees, build homes and make a range of forest products essential to everyday lives. We manage our timberland on a sustainable basis in compliance with internationally recognized forestry standards. At the end of 2011, we employed approximately 12,800 employees in 11 countries. We have customers worldwide and generated $6.3 billion ($6.2 billion US) in sales from continuing operations in 2011. Our stock trades on the New York Stock exchange under the symbol WY.

The Town of Princeton launches Zoning Bylaw review project Last reviewed comprehensively in 1994, Princeton’s Zoning Bylaw is now being updated into a user friendly Bylaw that incorporates best practices; addresses known issues; and better reflects the Town’s Official Community Plan (OCP), which seeks to “[promote] healthy and active living for all ages.” Council has identified the review of the Zoning Bylaw as a priority for 2013. Funding has been included in the 2012/2013 budget to complete this review and Urban Systems Ltd. has been hired to lead this planning project. A Provincial grant from the Ministry of Health in the amount of $20,000 will also assist the Town with incorporating age-friendly zoning land use regulations. A leader in planning and consultation, Urban Systems has developed particular expertise in reviewing Zoning Bylaws. The consulting team has successfully led similar planning projects in communities throughout B.C. and western Canada, including developing new Zoning Bylaws for Lake Country, Merritt, Princeton, Keremeos, Oliver and Kamloops – to name a few. The Zoning Bylaw is the primary regulatory tool for the implementation of the Town’s OCP, as well as other policies, which impact the use and development of property. Mayor Armitage is very pleased that we are moving forward with a new Zoning Bylaw and encourages the community to participate in the open house on Jan. 28, 2013.

A Zoning Bylaw regulates the: Use and density of development on residential, commercial, institutional and industrial lands, and in buildings Siting, size, and dimensions of buildings and uses The location of uses on land, and within buildings Parking and amenity space requirements The purpose of a Zoning Bylaw is to: Implement the policies of the OCP. Maintain order, efficiency and harmony of land uses Prevent overcrowding of land Protect the environment Protect property values The Zoning Bylaw Review Process: While there are numerous steps in this planning process, they can generally be summarized in 4 key phases: Phase 1 - Issue Identification/Technical Review Phase 2 - Community Engagement (Open House – January 28, 2013) Phase 3 - Bylaw Preparation Phase 4 - Approval The Town of Princeton looks forward to your participation in the review of our community’s Zoning Bylaw beginning with an evening Open House to be held at the Princeton and District Community Skills Centre (206 Vermilion Avenue) on Jan. 28, 2013 from 7 to 9 p.m. (Drop-in format) The adoption of the new Zoning Bylaw should be completed before the end of summer 2013, pending Council’s approval.

Safety is within your power Be ready and safe if the power goes out this winter. All it takes is a little planning and safety know-how: • create an emergency kit with 72 hours’ worth of supplies • store the kit in an easily accessible location • consider other heat sources, such as your gas fireplace (but never barbecues or camp stoves) • stay inside your vehicle until help arrives if it comes into contact with a downed power line For more tips and information, visit fortisbc.com/safety or call 1-888-438-7847.

SpotlightOPINION Lessons to be learned in tower breakdown Black Press Guest Editorial

Just weeks after regional district directors received a consultant’s report outlining the current state of the regional district’s 911 communications network, as well as proposals for future updates, some particularly nasty winter weather in the Okanagan knocked out a key communications tower in the regional district network. It’s just possible that mother nature did the regional district a favour. The tower failure highlighted a number of problems that the RDOS needs to address with respect to such things as provisions for an adequate warning system when remote equipment fails, and the potential vulnerability of such tower sites during extreme weather events Discussions ensuing from the Christmas week breakdown suggest that there may also be alternatives to relying completely on a network of tower sites to relay emergency signals from Kelowna throughout the RDOS. One suggestion is,  for instance, that rather than link Kelowna to Penticton via radio, a highly dedicated phone line might be more suitable - less susceptible to failure and cheaper, as well as being more in line with what other communications providers are doing. The recent communications breakdown, while causing inconvenience to nine regional fire departments, did not compromise public safety. But it appears that the incident did provide a number of lessons for the regional district as they move ahead with a modernization of emergency communications in the region - some of which, hopefully can be incorporated into plans laid out already in the consultants’ report.

Keep up the good work Santo’s Dear Editor, My wife Shareyl and I had the privilege of serving Christmas Dinner “For the community by the community” at Santo’s Restaurant on Christmas day to all that wanted to attend. The dinner was free of charge and we had a great time. What a way to spend Christmas day! I would like to take the time to say thank you to all the people that donated food and their time to prepare such a great meal. It makes Shareyl and I very happy to know that we live in a community where people think about others during the Christmas season. We served about 35 people that evening, some locals and some that were travelling and on their way home to Vancouver Island, who were amazed that a restaurant was actually open on Christmas day. You can imagine their surprise when they came in and were

offered a full turkey and ham dinner with all the trimmings and dessert. (Apple or pumpkin pie served by Tracey’s children) We want to say thank you to the owners Tracey and her husband (who worked very hard in the kitchen) Ian. It was a great representation of the people who live in Princeton. Caring and hospitable—I am sure the people who were travelling felt that. Once again, thanks to all those who were involved in this endeavour. It was a great success and a heartwarming experience for Shareyl and I. Keep up the good work Santo’s!

An election looms - it’s time for change Dear Editor; On December 3, 2012, I attended a Council Meeting as a delegate for SOS. We wanted to know about a Steering Committee whose very existence was very “hushhush”, that is, no one would tell us what it was all about. We wanted to know who had set up the committee, its function, who set the agenda, who chaired it, and who were members. We learned that IHA had set up the committee. Susan Brown from IHA chaired the meetings, and IHA set the agenda. The members were IHA officials plus representatives from our community, Brad Hope, Jason Earle, and Ed Staples. The committee’s mandate was to find a longterm solution for Princeton General Hospital. Although a good thing, I pointed out that perhaps it was better to find solutions to the present problems and then concentrate on longterm ones. I further indicated that alternative hospital models already existed and it was not necessary to “reinvent the wheel”. My final request was that minutes of the steering committee be made public, and I was assured that those minutes would be available. I was later e-mailed and informed that all meetings were “in camera” and therefore no minutes would be released to the public. It makes a person wonder what great secrets are being discussed that everything had to be “in camera” and why our town representatives aren’t more vocal about opposing this. In my opinion this steering committee lacks integrity. It

Otter Valley Fish & Game Club

does not provide transparency, accountability, or communication, and yet it appears to make decisions that affect us all. A week before Christmas, IHA grandly released the information that it wanted the public to know, namely that a new doctor had been hired: no thanks to IHA or the steering committee. However, here is the clincher; that doctor is not available until August! So what are we to do in the meantime? Perhaps, IHA hoped that we wouldn’t notice the inconsistencies and that we would blindly accept empty promises. Meanwhile, we continue to work on finding solutions because the hospital problems are still unresolved; in fact, our hospital services have been further downgraded. Working with IHA has not been a solution. It appears to be their mandate is to dismantle rural health services and centralize. Many people do not seem to understand this. It is the present government that has created the monster. It is time to look at that government, who has failed to rectify the problem. An election looms in the horizon; it’s time for a change.

Dear Editor, Over the holidays some friends and I decided to have fun in the snow at Snowpatch. We wanted to tube on the hill and use a skidoo to pull the tubes back to the top. When we arrived we were approached abruptly by a man who stormed toward our vehicle and yelled at us not to bother unloading the sled. The man was rude, he treated us with utmost disdain. We made the mistake of thinking that Snowpatch had a place for sleds (we used to go sledding up there all the time) we would have appreciated understanding rather than intolerance. My point in drawing attention to the extremely rude, almost threatening behaviour of this person is that if he represents the China Ridge Trails and therefore our town, he is certainly not encouraging to visitors. We had a friend from out of town with us and he was shocked by the lack of a reasonable conversation. We were demeaned and treated very discourteously because we had a skidoo on the back of our truck. We have since found out that we are not the only ones to be treated like this by this particular person. If we were tourists to Princeton it is not likely we would be back.

Letter to every political wannabe As more and more of the present day politicians are concerned of the way we are “Governed” the less and less, they are willing to find a solution. In around the 1850s there were some forward thinking men and women with a dream and they went to work on building a country. The country finally became a new nation called Canada. And with hard work Canada even got its own constitution, mainly by work of Jean Elliot Trudeau, but somewhere along the way prior to Pierre Elliot some of the politicians decided it would be OK to create “Income Tax” to pay for the war effort they found themselves fighting. From that day on those taxes became a steady diet for the Canadian working man. Oh I forgot to mention Pierre Elliot’s, now famous way of giving his finger to Canadians and also showing his arrogance to the Canadian public. It was Brian Mulroney who gave us the “North American Free Trade Agreement” and the “Global Economy” that has put taxes on taxes on our working man and many corporations not paying any taxes at all. So, now if I may suggest for the next slate of Politicians, fix this country to the 1867 level that your pre-governments so callously wrecked for their hard working people and it can be achieved by equal taxes for all the people and all the corporations and their shareholders and leaders.

While the above is not a new idea all it needs is willing and brave politicians working towards a common goal. Personally, I am living in my twilight years, I will never see our politicians reach anything resembling near a common goal, the beggaring and manoeuvres we hear from “Question Period” from our politicians on “Parliament Hill in Ottawa” make sure of that. Mr. Politician, it remains a sad fact that it was our previous and even the present Government who have put every man, woman and child into debt by “Thousands of Dollars” by your mismanagement of our “Tax dollars”. Mr. politician it is very “Arrogant” for you to come and tell Canadians that they are living beyond their “Means” when we have had you as a teacher for Canada’s everyday hard lessons. Last but not least, at least show me where I am wrong Mr. Politician. It is also useless to blame the other “Parties,” since they were as bad as you when they had the reigns in previous governments. The situation we have today rest equally on your shoulders, Mr. Politician, of all ilk and persuation. Yukon Eric Holopainen Princeton, Bc

A visual blight in our valley’s beauty Dear Editor, Big Box Containers – The benefits of this efficient and secure storage solution are obvious -they are however unsightly and are increasingly becoming a visual “blight” on the beauty of our valleys and residential subdivisions. Amazingly, unlike traditionally constructed storage sheds or garages, there is no planning permission or application required (other than the normal property line set-backs) for placing one on a residential property and no increase is made to the value of a property hence no increase in property taxes. Imagine then coming home to find one of these “permanently installed” in a neighbours yard with no opportunity to voice an objection, no obligation to place it discretely or to “camouflage” it and no property tax increase implications either.

Surely the RDOS is obliged to take a leadership role in this matter and protect the interests of its residents. At least the same planning application approval process should be applied to the placements of big box containers as is in place for garages and sheds. Perhaps RDOS should go even further and ensure that these units are placed as discretely as possible on residential properties and that fences to conceal them are installed. It is certainly appropriate to initiate a significant property tax increase – one that might possibly even prevent the placement of a big box on a residential property in the first place. Yours sincerely, Brian FitzGerald. Princeton, BC

VICTORIA – The B.C. government is working on ways to hold onto movie, TV and video game production, as Hollywood shifts work to other provinces and countries that attract them with generous subsidies and tax breaks. But that won’t involve matching generous tax credits offered by Ontario and Quebec, said Bill Bennett, B.C.’s minister of community, sport and cultural development. “I understand why the film and TV and digital media industries are concerned,” Bennett said in an interview Monday. “What the film industry seems to want mainly is for us to match the tax credits that are available in Ontario, and we can’t do that.” Bennett said he is working on a new policy that will “clean up and simplify” the business environment for the industry, which is looking at further costs as B.C. prepares to phase out the harmonized sales tax in March. Movie industry insiders say most of B.C.’s movie crews are out of work as 2013 begins. One of those is Lee Cleary, assistant director on such B.C.-made movies as The Hurt Locker, Fantastic 4 and the first X-Men movies. “The last project that I worked on in B.C. was in 2009, on The ‘A’ Team, Cleary said from his home in Vancouver, where he has lived for 10 years. “Since then the blockbuster films have not been coming here.” In 2009, Ontario stepped up its tax credit for film and TV production to 25 per cent of all spending by foreign companies in the province. Since then, Ontario has passed B.C. as the third largest entertainment production centre in North America, after California and New York. B.C. gives the industry a 33-per-cent refundable tax credit on labour spending only. Quebec has also stepped up its incentives, resulting in 20th Century Fox moving later movies in the X-Men series to Montreal. Bennett said the B.C. government provided $1.2 million last year to BC Film + Media, a non-profit society that offers financing, marketing and skills development. Another $947,000 went to the BC Film Commission, a provincial government office that helps producers secure permits, crews and shooting locations around the province. Another $235,000 was provided to regional film commissions last year. Cleary said the rise of computer image techniques reduce the appeal of B.C. scenery to filmmakers. B.C.’s spectacular mountains can be added to a scene “with a brushstroke,” and Hollywood studios are shopping the world for the best deal, he said. B.C. still has a reputation for quality crews, beautiful locations and easy access to Los Angeles, but those things alone aren’t keeping big studio projects coming. Cleary said B.C. residents are still finding work, but leaving the province to get it.

SPOTLIGHT The Similkameen

Proudly serving the community since 1948 • www.similkameenspotlight.com

NDP representatives visit Princeton Hospital Forum On January 4, 2013 SOS (Save our Similkameen) hosted an energetic, well attended hospital forum. Special guests were Katrine Conroy, NDP Whip (who also holds the Seniors Portfolio for the entire province), Marji Basso, NDP Candidate for Boundary-Similkameen whose main platform is Health Issues, and Harry Lali, our MLA. SOS wanted to provide an avenue whereby seniors and other interested groups would have an opportunity to voice health concerns and issues. The forum proved to be the perfect venue for this. The morning started for the dignitaries with a tour of Princeton General Hospital and of Ridgewood. Afterwards, the group proceeded down to the SOS office on Vermilion Avenue, where each dignitary presented his/her views of health care, and then the floor was opened to

comments, questions, or suggestions from the forty plus people in attendance. Walter Hogg spoke for the Princeton Seniors. Before the meeting he conducted a survey of the members and compiled a list of the most pressing and frequenting voiced concerns. Rob Miller, representing Osprey and Bankeir area, expressed concerns about time factors, Tom Rushworth from Eastgate had similar concerns as did Beryl Wallace who represented the Senior’s Group from Hedley. Ernie Rice represented Coalmont. Tulameen did not send a representative. It was hoped that since the present government has shown little interest and has been ineffectual in bringing in any positive change, other than promises and more promises, that others would be willing to listen and perhaps instigate change.

GRANT - continued from page 1

The project approved for the grant funding is the Princeton Zoning bylaw review: incorporating age-friendly land use regulations. As part of the Zoning bylaw review process, an Open House will be held at the Princeton and District Community Skills Centre (206 Vermilion Avenue) on Jan. 28, 2013 from 7 to 9 p.m. It is a drop in format and all residents are encourage to attend.

1 teaspoon dried sage To serve 5 ounces whole-wheat spaghetti 1 cups shredded green cabbage 1 tablespoons low-fat sour cream Start the sauce by cooking the onion in 1⁄4 cup of the broth in a covered casserole for 4 to 5 minutes or until softened. Stir in the garlic,

CAPRICORN: You may find a turnaround in your financial situation has finally arrived, Capricorn. Just don’t spend all of that newfound money in one place. Put some into an account for later. AQUARIUS: Aquarius, you may need someone to light a fire under you this week. Welcome this effort because once you get going you will be able to accomplish anything. PISCES: Pisces, it may be a challenge to balance work and home life responsibilities this week. Aim for a 60/40 split of requirements. ARIES: Aries, your domestic side will come out this week when you decide to play host or hostess to friends or family. You may reveal some surprising skills in the kitchen. TAURUS: It will take fast action for you to get something accomplished this week, Taurus. If you blink, the opportunity may pass you by, so get moving. GEMINI: You may need to reconsider your purchasing power, Gemini. Your finances may not be what they seem at this moment, and you could need to play things conservatively. CANCER: Cancer, there are a few obstacles you will have to overcome before you can move on to something more enjoyable this week. Make the hard work a priority and the rest will follow. LEO: Maintain the status quo this week, Leo. You may be tempted to do things differently, but going with the flow and not rocking the boat is the best approach this week. VIRGO: Flexibility will be the key this week, Virgo. If you are able to bend, then you will be much more successful than if you are rigid in your opinions and actions. LIBRA: Libra, if you find you have been falling behind on things or simply cannot seem to get organized, then it’s time to reconsider your approach. SCORPIO: Scorpio, when party planning is put into your hands, you are right in your element as a natural leader. You are bound to have all of the details perfect. SAGITTARIUS: Someone could require a pep talk this week, and you are the person for the job, Sagittarius. Figure out ways to downplay any struggles and point out all that this person has accomplished. FOR ENTERTAINMENT ONLY

peppers and paprika and cook for 1 minute, then add the tomatoes, tomato paste, and the remaining broth. Season and simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes. While the sauce is cooking, mix the meatball ingredients together with seasoning and shape into 24 small balls. Brown the meatballs in 2 batches in a nonstick frying pan, then add to the sauce and simmer for 20 minutes.

Cook the spaghetti in a large saucepan of lightly salted boiling water for 7 minutes, then stir in the cabbage and cook for another 5 minutes. Drain and divide the pasta and cabbage between warmed bowls. Spoon the meatballs and sauce over the pasta and top each serving with a teaspoon of sour cream. PC111267

JOHNSTON, Lynda Jean (Nee Putnam) August 5, 1944 ~ December 27, 2012 It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Lynda, after several couragous years of illness. Predeceased by her beloved husband, Howard Johnston, she leaves behind her dedicated brother Graham Putnam, niece Dana Putnam, nephew Brent Putnam and grand-niece Sylvia McFadden, as well as members of the Johnston family and many dear friends and neighbours who cared about her and helped her in so many ways over the years; in particular, a heartfelt thank you to Lorraine Stubbins and Noni Abbs who were always there for Lynda. Born and raised in Vancouver, she worked at the UBC Library and was a lifelong horse owner. As her experience with horses developed she used her horses for therapy for children with physical disabilities. This expertise and lifelong love of horses brought her to Princeton for her retirement. In Princeton, she was finally able to live with her horses on the property instead of commuting several times a day to another site as she had always done in Vancouver. Once here, she built strong relationships with other horse-loving folks and was active in the Seniors Citizen’s Branch 30 where she was the membership registrar.  We will remember Lynda for her continuous optimism and pragmatism in the face of adversity. She was always problem-solving and never deterred by the many obstacles she faced in her life. Her spirit was strong.  At her request, no service will be held. Messages of condolences may be sent by visiting www.hansonsfuneral.com
