Students get a taste of the building jobs during trades exploration day Students participate in hands on experience with local tradesmen By Steve Arstad news@keremeosreview.com

Similkameen Elementary Secondary School’s auto mechanics shop rang to the sound of hammer blows, lit up to the flash of a welder’s arc and emanated the

solvent fumes of PVC cement on January 28. The shop was host room to the YES 2 IT Trades Exploration Day, an initiative between School District 53, the Industry Training Authority, local trades people and local business. Four Similkameen tradesmen came to the school to demonstrate their trade to students from grades six and seven, who were also given hands on experience. This year’s focus was on building trades, with students receiving instruction from Jessie of Central Fabricators, Jim Murphy from Paradise Climate Control,

Todd Conquergood from Conquergood Electric and Evin Hartfield from Cathedral Ridge Construction. Students received practical training through a series of four workstations that included welding, wiring a simple electrical circuit, PVC pipe construction, and woodworking techniques. Each station allowed the student to complete a part for a finished product, which in this case was a PVC plastic “marshmallow gun”. Four SESS grade six and seven classes participated in the event.

Report from finance authority discourages Fourth Avenue staircase Hillside too unstable for staircase link connecting upper bench with Lower Keremeos By Steve Arstad news@keremeosreview.com Council held a brief regular meeting on January 21. The Southern Interior Local Government Association (SILGA) submitted a call for resolutions for the organzation’s upcoming convention May 1 - 3. Council received the letter for information purposes. The village formalized the terms of the water supply agreement between the Village of Keremeos and the Keremeos Irrigation District. Council approved a three year agreement between the two parties for supply of water as well as the operation and maintenance of the village’s water supply and distribution system. Council was also updated with respect to 2012 bylaw enforcement statistics. The number of dogs being licensed in the village increased last year over

2011, up 17 per cent. Dog impounds increased while dog complaints decreased by 177 per cent over 2011. Property maintenance complaints generate the most complaints to the village, but these remained relatively constant over the past few years. The village currently spends $22,000 per year for bylaw enforcement services, which are contracted out. Staff also provided council with an update on the public works and parks department for 2012. Maintenance staff were engaged in several formal training sessions in the past year. Highlights of the report include: Trail linking the upper bench at Fourth Street - a report from the Municipal Finance Authority inspected the corridor and found the hillside to be unstable, recommending that stairs not be built. - The utility truck is in operation, but Councillor Cowling noted that the fender had fallen off at one point. Maintenance Foreman Jordy Bosscha noted that the repair was made under warranty. - Energy efficient heating was in-

stalled downstairs in Victory Hall, with the hot water system currently in progress. The regional district sent council a letter espousing the benefits of reducing curbside pickup to one bag per week from the current two. The report to council noted that the higher the median age in the municipality, the less waste collected. It also noted that young families tended to produce more waste. There would be no cost savings for consumers should the change be implemented. A comment from the gallery during Question Period involved that of consumer dissatisfaction over a move to a one bag limit, noting that residents would be seeing a decrease in level of service without a corresponding tax reduction. It was suggested that if bag limits were reduced, a number of “Tag a bag” tags should be allotted to each household, for use when excessive waste was created. A move to a single bag limit would be punitive to those least able to afford it.

Keremeos Irrigation District preparing for reservoir referendum By Kevin Huey Keremeos Irrigation District The village has set the date of April 27 for the referendum, required to approve the borrowing for the new reservoir construction. Over the next few weeks the Keremeos Irrigation District will be providing information regarding the reservoir and the process, by answering some of the questions that have been most frequently asked, starting with “Why do we need a reservoir?” The Keremeos water system was constructed 45 years ago to only provide water for agriculture. This

water system today has the added demands of residential, commercial, institutional and fire protection placed on it. In two separate engineering reports commissioned by the district, it was determined that the lack of water storage is the number one water system deficiency. A new reservoir is required to enable the district to provide continual water service and to maintain the quality of the water, by reducing the potential for backflow due to depressurizations. There are times during peak demand that some areas of Keremeos are operating at the absolute maximum system capacity. Simply put, the res-

ervoir will allow the district to utilize our existing pumping capacity much more efficiently, effectively and reduce costs. The reservoir will provide the Keremeos area with a level of fire protection which we do not currently have. In all water systems, many much smaller than ours, adequate reservoir storage is an integral part of those systems, to ensure water is provided in the required quantity and quality efficiently and effectively for its current and future users. Please submit any questions or comments to the district at: kid@nethop.net or to the office at 712 - 6th avenue or phone (250) 499-5651.

THE REVIEW

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

Editorial Trash idea of one bag limit Regional district directors read an adminstrative report discussing the benefits of a one container limit for curbside collection customers in the RDOS at the January 24 board meeting. The staff report suggested that, based on data collected from Oliver and Osoyoos, where a one bag limit exists, the regional district could see a “significant drop” in the average amount of waste collected under a one container policy. The report goes on to say that Oliver and Osoyoos experienced a “small, vocal opposition at first,” and that the higher the median age the less waste collected. Moving to a one bag limit under the current terms of the regional district’s contract with BFI will not save any money on collection fees. The regional district could save between $2 and $2.30 per year per home per year in landfill fees, however. Is this a good deal for regional district taxpayers? We think not. Many households in the regional district are made up of residents in the higher median age bracket, residents who likely live in two person households and can keep weekly garbage limits at low levels, simply because their consumption is low - not necessarily because they are any better at recycling. It’s also a bad idea because it amounts to a reduction of contracted service to which residents agreed to pay the present fees for. It’s unfair to the householder to expect him / her to continue paying the same rate for a reduction in service. It’s also a discriminatory policy, because, as the staff report admits, larger households and families will be hit the hardest - those whose incomes are already stretched. A more realistic policy - and one that would at least attempt to be fair - would be to provide “tag a bag” stickers to allow for two bags for, say 40 weeks per year, and slowly reduce the number of “tag a bag” stickers provided each year. At the end of the present contract with BFI, residents will at least have had some opportunity to get used to the reduction in services - without it having quite so negative an impact on a young family’s pocketbook.

Clark touts growth at mining conference By Tom Fletcher Black Press Premier Christy Clark welcomed delegates to an international mining exploration conference Monday with a prediction of record investment in the B.C. industry this year. “Last year, as you know, was a recordbreaking year for mining exploration, $462 million,” Clark said in a speech that previews the coming election campaign. “Compare that to the 1990s, when $26 million a year in exploration was underway. We’ve come a long way in 12 years, and it’s pretty tough to beat those recordbreaking years.” She predicted that mark will be shattered with another 47 per cent increase, mostly due to a few large proj-

ects underway now. While exploration is up, five mining expansions are permitted to proceed in the province. They are: Endako Mines’ molybdenum mine at Fraser Lake in Central B.C.; Teck’s Highland Valley copper mine at Logan Lake in the Okanagan; Huckleberry Mine, an open-pit copper and molybdenum mine near Dease Lake in northwestern B.C.; Quinsam Coal, an underground thermal coal mine on Vancouver Island; and Elkview, a Teck metallurgical coal mine near Sparwood in the Kootenays. Conference delegates applauded another recent development, the first mineral royalty sharing agreements with aboriginal p e o p l e fo r H u c k l e berry Mine and New Afton, an expansion

of a Kamloops-area copper mine. Clark also touted an improvement in permit approval times for land and water use as well as “notice of work” permits. The waiting time has been reduced from 110 days to 80 days, and another $7 million will be spent to get it down to 60 days, she said. NDP mining critic Doug Donaldson said the B.C. Liberal government is still working to fix a problem it created, when mining permit time went from 55 days in 2007 to 110 days by 2011. The 60day target for noticeof-work per mits was supposed to be met in November, Donaldson added. Clark also took aim at another prominent election issue, the need for skilled trades training. She said the

public school system is making a mistake when it spends 13 years and billions of dollars, then tells students they need a degree before they can work. High schools and post-secondary institutions are getting new equipment and more access to instructors so they can enter the workforce sooner, she said. “Let’s cut completion time for trades training in half, and let’s stop training people for jobs that don’t exist,” Clark said. A major part of the N D P c a m p a i g n fo r the May election will be focused on overall cuts to post-secondary funding in recent B.C. Liberal budgets. ay is Valentines D book , re he t os m al y! da to your ad 53 26 949 0Call 25

Directors seek more information on emergency infrastructure upgrades Directors ask for more input on proposed upgrades from regional fire chiefs By Steve Arstad news@keremeosreview.com Several regional district directors would like to see more input from regional fire chiefs in the telecommunications strategy. The matter came up during a Protective Services Committee update on January 24. Planetworks Consultants presented a rather negative report of present 911 infrastructure at the November 15 Protective Services Committee meeting of the board. The consultant’s report presented two possible approaches for upgrades to the system, at costs of 1.6 million or 2.3 million dollars respectively. Both upgrade choices offered the extensive use of radio signals to convey emergency signals across the district. Area “D” Director Tom Siddon and Area “C” Director Allan Patton both expressed a desire to hear a committee of regional fire chiefs recommendation to the board prior to a decision regarding the upgrade methodololgy. “I will be hosting an appreciation dinner for Area “D” fire departments this evening,” said Siddon. “I will be discussing this mat-

School District No. 53 (Okanagan Similkameen)

ter with the Kaleden and Okanagan Falls chiefs.” Siddon described a recent communication from Planetworks as being “self justification” for their recommendation to use a network of radio repeater towers to convey 911 signals across the district. “We have to have all the fire department staff at the table and consult with the fire departments before we make a decision,” he said. “A dedicated Telus line might be worth looking into over radio towers,” agreed West Bench Director Michael Brydon. “Radio fails more often than ground lines.” Emergency Services Supervisor Dale Kronebusch disagreed, saying that landlines were much more prone to failure. “One car wreck into a hydro pole could do it,” (result in system failure) he said. Siddon then asked if Telus had fibreoptics underground, to which Kronebusch answered in the affirmative. “Well, there you are,” answered Siddon, but Kronebusch continued to disagree, citing the possibility of earthquake damage. Summerland Director Bruce Hallquist also told the board that regional fire chiefs needed to have more input. He disagreed with Kronebush’s assessment of a recent chief’s meeting that “everyone went away happy.” “Our chiefs are the ones in the business,” he concluded, “we need to listen to what they have to say.”

Food bank benefits from region’s generosity To the Editor: We won! What a way to start the new year. Thanks to the generosity of the valley, faithful contributors of food to Valley First’s Feed the Valley contest last year, the Keremeos branch won the contest and the Cawston Food Bank is richer by $6,500. What a much needed boost for us. This will go a long way to help feed the needy in our valley. The students from Cawston Primary and those from SESS contributed a lot of hard work to the food drive. It was those forty plus boxes of food that they collected that put this area over the top. All the students deserve a congratulatory note for their effort.

Christmas hampers contained juice from Warenberg Orchards, squash, potatoes and onions from Bear’s Fruit Stand, carrots from Don McCurdy and apples from Cawston Cold Storage. The Cawston Food Bank also benefited from private donations this winter from Interior Health union staff ($250), Bob Thurston ($200), and a $100 gift certificate from a Valu Plus donor. This season’s efforts helped 179 people. The Cawston Food Bank appreciates the support given in the past and looks forward to continued support in the future. We can’t do it without you - and the need continues to grow. Ingrid Percival, Cawston Food Bank

Resident recalls tragedies of the past To the Editor: Some times in our own area there have been tragedies the present occupants know nothing about. My second wife, who happens also to be my cousin had just such a thing happen in the early 1920s. The Joy family owned the five acres that are just east of the traffic light on the highway at Trout Creek in Summerland. This acreage was five acres of stumps and Tom Joy was clearing and burning those stumps. There were two older boys and four girls. Marion Joy was just a toddler in those days, and somehow she fell she had fallen in the hole of one of these burning stumps. Harriet Joy had

found her, and somehow got her out of the burning stump and carried and dragged her as best she could to where there was help. Marion lived for some time, but eventually succumbed to the burns. When the Joys got home from the funeral, the bill for the funeral was in the mail. Times were hard and there was no way they could pay the bill. One of Tom Joys buddies Hugh McLarty said, “Give me the bill, I’ll pay it!” He was a working partner of Tom Joys at the Summerland Research Station. My wife Audrey was telling me that Marion used to say, “Audy - God loves you.” Have any of you known what its like to have lost a dear little sister like that? Wilf Miller, Keremeos

Salute to Citizens on Patrol from one community group to another To the Editor: Friends of Olalla extends its thanks to the dedicated, community-spirited members of our area’s “Citizens on Patrol” – a long time service organization in our valley communities. In the nighttime hours of each weekend throughout the year, COP volunteers add their eyes and ears to those of our local RCMP members, in vigilant safety patrols of our neighborhoods and their rural surroundings. While their presence also adds to the safety of Keremeos and Cawston residents, we especially thank them for their regular presence on the streets of Olalla, our own home area. We salute them for their contribution to our well-being. We also encourage adult residents of Olalla and all our neighboring communities to consider joining them in their work. After completing a satisfactory no-cost criminal record check through our local RCMP Detachment, potential volunteers are contacted by COP and asked for a commitment of one four-hour shift of duty per month plus attendance at a two-hour monthly meeting. Volunteers work in pairs, for their own safety. As they witness suspicious behavior, they relay their information to the police, without personal active engagement. On-thejob orientation and training are provided to new volunteers by seasoned members. You can apply for your criminal record check at any time during the detachment’s Monday through Friday office hours. Just say you’re W ATM NO LE! B AVAILA

Fifth generation Cawston farming duo to represent B.C. in national award Press release from the B.C. and Yukon Outstanding Young Farmer Program A fifth generation farmer and his wife have been named BC’s Outstanding Young Farmers for 2013. Cawston agriculturalists, 30-yearold Troy Harker and his wife, Sara, also 30, received their award from BC Lieutenant Governor Judy Guichon and Canadian OYF president Derek Janzen in front of over 400 people at the annual BC Agriculture Gala in Abbotsford, Jan 23. It was a fitting presentation as Guichon is past president of the BC Cattlemen’s Association while Janzen is a poultry producer and past BC Outstanding Young Farmer. The Harkers family run farm also includes Troy’s parents and sister. Based on a diverse 30-acre organic

vegetable farm and orchard founded by Troy’s great-great grandfather, William James Manery, in the 1880’s, the farm’s 48 full-time and seasonal workers also operate a fruit winery, on-farm retail store, restaurant program and wholesale distribution service under the banners: Harker Organics, Rustic Roots Winery, Farm to Fork Delivery and Harvest Moon Growers. When Troy and Sara joined the operation in 2006, then comprising only an organic farm, retail market and small organic packing and distribution service, they “saw the need for diversification.” They responded by adding the restaurant delivery program, which now serves 25 restaurants in the Okanagan and Similkameen Valleys. Sara is also the winemaker for Rustic Roots, a new fruit winery which has given the Harkers and their fellow organic growers a rewarding outlet for their cull fruit. They are slowly converting their orchard to highdensity plantings and now have two acres of Honeycrisp apple trees in

a two foot by 10 foot super-spindle production system. Their wholesale packing business has also expanded and now distributes organic fruit and vegetables from 25 organic growers with a total of 550 acres of production. The 2013 BC Outstanding Young Farmer award is one of a long list of awards the Harkers have received in recent years. In 2011, the BC Institute of Agrologists named them the Farming Family of the Year and the Canadian Wine Awards honored them for the Best Fruit Wine in Canada. Harker Organics has also been named one of B.C.’s Top five Agrotourism Destinations and Eat Magazine’s Best Okanagan Farm. The Harkers will represent BC at the national OYF competition in Saskatchewan in November. Harker’s provincial win follows closely that of fellow Cawston organic growers Kevin and Anna Marie Klippenstein, who went on to win the national competition after being named BC and Yukon Outstanding Farmers of the Year in 2011.

South Okanagan Similkameen Volunteer Centre update No shortage of non- profit organizations for individuals to donate their time and expertise By Sandra Dean, Member Services Coordinator South Okanagan SImilkameen Volunteer Centre If you have not heard of the South Okanagan Similkameen Volunteer Centre please take some time to learn about us. Volunteers are needed everywhere! Check out the web site at www.volunteercentre.info or call us at 778-476-5661. Our main resource centre office is located at 102 -696 Main Street in Penticton but there are resource areas in the communities of Okanagan Falls (at The Falls Furniture & Cabinet Co., 5119 - 9th Avenue), Oliver (at the Oliver Community Centre) and Osoyoos (at the Osoyoos Public Library). At each of these locations you will find volunteer

opportunities posted. Volunteering should be an experience that gives you satisfaction and the challenge that you need. It is an activity that is rewarding because it is in the time you have available and allows you to decide what is right for you. There are many organizations in the South Okanagan Similkameen communities that really need the support and help of volunteers. The Volunteer Centre is an association of non-profit societies and other organizations that could not function without volunteers. As more organizations join up with the Volunteer Centre it is truly becoming a one-stop-shop to help you discover what you want to help with and who you need to connect with. Did you know that there are almost 500 non-profit societies and charities in the South Okanagan Similkameen region? Some operate with only a volunteer base and many operate with only one staff person and rely strictly on the support of volunteers.

Look at the Okanagan Gleaners for instance. A truly dedicated group of people, including families, take the time to help with tasks related to processing, dehydrating and packaging our local produce and fruit. This goes to feeding the hungry and poor from around the world. The Gleaners can be contacted in Oliver at 250-498-8859. Maybe you would like to consider mentoring or tutoring? The South Okanagan Immigrant and Community Services Society help new immigrants transition into coming to Canada. They need volunteers to help mentor and tutor in English language and assist with connecting the newcomer to the community and resources. It is also an opportunity to be an advocate and friend for our new residents. Contact Angelika Eneas at 250 4925-6299 for more information. These opportunities to volunteer are just a few of many. Check out the web site of the Volunteer Centre. Get started! You will help to make a tremendous difference.

For the most part, RRSP concepts and facts are easy to understand: You regularly contribute to RRSP-eligible investments, the accumulating investment amounts are tax-deductible and taxsheltered until you make withdrawals in retirement, and you enjoy the considerable benefits of compound growth over the longer term. Those RRSP facts are plain and simple but here are a few lesser known facts that will help you get the most from your RRSP eligible investments. The Home Buyer’s Plan allows you to borrow from investments held in your RRSP for the purchase of your first home. You and your spouse can each borrow up to $25,000 but you can only participate in the program once and you must repay investments held in your RRSP over the next fifteen years or you’ll pay tax on any amounts not repaid. The Lifelong Learning Plan makes it possible for you to use funds held within your RRSP to pay for training or education. If you qualify, you can withdraw up to $10,000 in a calendar year with the total withdrawal amount capped at $20,000 over a maximum of four consecutive years. You must repay within ten years to avoid penalties. If you cease to be a resident of Canada you can still make contributions to your RRSP eligible investments using only Canadian-source earned income to calculate your contribution limit. There is a 25% withholding tax for payments to non-residents from investments held within a RRSP or RRIF but you can transfer qualifying lump-sum pension benefits or retirement allowances directly into your RRSP eligible investments without paying the withholding tax. You can also transfer funds between investments held within RRSPs without incurring a tax penalty. In the year you turn 71 you must wind up your RRSP and take the cash, purchase an annuity or transfer the money to RRIF eligible investments, from which you will be required to withdraw annual amounts based on your age.

MANAGING Your Money If you are not earning much income, it might be more advantageous to start making withdrawals from your investments held within a RRSP/RRIF prior to age 71 to smooth out your taxable income in later years. After age 71, you can no longer make contributions to RRSP eligible investments for yourself but if your spouse is under age 71, you can still make contributions on their behalf. Knowing the facts about RRSPs and RRIFs and using the right strategies will help ensure you can realize all your retirement dreams. You can get the right RRSP (and all other financial) facts and strategies from your professional advisor. This column, written and published by Investors Group Financial Services Inc.
