Sobriety check results in drug bust Sobriety check of slow poke woman driver leads to drug bust in Princeton.

A sobriety check by an RCMP Traffic Services patrol unit in Princeton, uncovered a driver with an outstanding warrant for her arrest along with the discovery of a quantity of crack cocaine, marijuana and oxycodone. The driver and another adult woman were taken into custody after a search of the vehicle by a police service dog uncovered the hidden drugs. On Friday Jan. 25, 2013 at around 8:35 p.m., an RCMP Traffic Services patrol team stopped a brown 2005 Pontiac Sunfire along Hwy 3 in Princeton, after the vehicle was observed travelling at a speed notably below the posted speed limit. On detaining the 23 year old female driver and her female passenger also 23 years old, it was discovered that the driver had an outstanding warrant for her arrest for trafficking. The pair was also arrested for possession of a controlled substance due to the officer’s observations. A police dog search of the vehicle resulted in the discovery of a small amount of marijuana found in the passenger compartment along with 95 separate packs of crack cocaine and a quantity of pills believed to be oxycodone,  found hidden in the trunk compartment. Both women were from Vernon BC, and were taken into custody on cocaine trafficking and marihuana possession charges.

Shoppers Drug Mart robbery Lisa Carleton lisa@similkameenspotlight.com

Princeton Shoppers Drug Mart went on lockdown Wednesday, Jan. 30 in the early afternoon as a result of an armed robbery. Just shortly after noon two males armed with pocketknives entered Shoppers Drug Mart and demanded that the pharmacists give them prescription drugs. “Investigators have seized the in-store video which captured the robbery. Police have identified potential suspects and are actively look-

Princeton

ing for them. Considering the evidence that has mounted so far, these two individuals may even want to consider turning themselves into authorities at this time,” stated Cpl Dan Moskaluk. The suspects, carrying various prescription drugs exited the store through the rear door and were last seen fleeing the scene on foot. Anyone with information regarding the incident is asked to call Princeton RCMP at 250295-6911 or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

Smart Meter bombshell

Surrey-Whiterock MLA Gordon Hogg’s office just released information that is being welcomed by the many thousands of British Columbians opposed to the forced installation of wireless smart meters. Mr. Hogg’s office reports that last Wednesday, Energy Minister Rich Coleman advised that individual home owners who continue to refuse installation of smart meters will not be forced to have one: “…if you say ‘no’ and do not consent – that is the end of it….” “You will not be ‘forced’ into having one or be in fear of it being installed when you are not at home.” Policies for multiple family buildings and strata units have yet to be clarified. The office advises that anyone who has a smart meter and suffers an existing medical condition should contact BC Hydro (smartmeters@bchydro. com), with a copy to Honourable Rich Coleman at emh.minister@gov.bc.ca, asking that the meter be replaced with a non-radiating analog. Individual MLAs should be copied, and it is expected that any further assistance would be available from them. According to their website, Fortis BC requires approval by the BC Utilities Commission (BCUC) before any advanced (smart) meters can be installed. Fortis BC’s application with the BCUC outlines the utility’s plan for smart meter infrastructure, the benefits to customers, costs and the extensive public consultation Fortis BC has carried out. Should the BCUC approve Fortis’ project, meter exchanges will begin in 2014. Many hydro customers who have them, want their smart meters removed due to increased electricity bills, the risk of fire or concern for security. The Coalition is gathering names. If you would like to add your name to this list, please email director@stopsmartmetersbc.ca, subject line “Remove meter.”

SpotlightOPINION The Penny, the ancient coin Black Press Guest Editorial

If you didn’t know, the Canadian penny is being taken out of circulation on Monday. Stores and banks will still accept them, but the latter will no longer issue them. The federal government decided a year ago to phase out the 105-year-old penny, mainly because it took 1.6 cents to make every one-cent coin. The Royal Canadian Mint stopped stamping pennies in May. While sentiment has no value in the equation, it shouldn’t be discounted altogether. A penny could once buy a stamp, back when the postal service was still a well used service. Children used to collect pennies, save them in piggy banks, use them to buy candy, or play games – table-top hockey or football. They spun them, flipped them, examined the printing dates in search of the oldest one. Parents saved them with other coins in old pickle jars, rolling, then taking them all to the bank for bills to be used as discretionary spending on summer vacations. Pennies were the object of fundraising drives, and wishing wells. They were thought to bring luck. But no such notion will save the penny now. Over the years, far too many were left in the trays of cars and trucks, or in kitchen containers. A 2007 survey showed that only 37 per cent of Canadians used the copper-plated steel coins. The mint will save $11 million a year by not making them. One cent will remain the smallest unit for pricing goods and services, but bills will be rounded to the nearest nickel for those paying cash. The federal government expects six billion pennies to be turned in over the next six years, as they are phased out, melted and the metal recycled. As Finance Minister Jim Flaherty said, the penny is a currency without any currency. Discontinuing it just makes sense.

Bylaw review open house Lisa Carleton lisa@similkameenspotlight.com

The Town of Princeton hosted a Zoning Bylaw Review Open House on Monday, Jan. 28, to give residents the opportunity to be involved in the future of land regulations in Princeton. Community Planners from Urban Systems were on hand to answer questions regarding the bylaw review. Earlier that same day, the planners visited the high school and met with students and local seniors who regardless of the differences in ages, shared common concerns in regards to zoning issues in Princeton. The current Zoning Bylaw was last reviewed in 1994 and is now being updated to incorporate the

best practices, address known issues and reflect Princeton’s Official Community Plan. During the open house, residents were encouraged to share their thoughts on issues including; secondary suites and carriage homes, home based businesses, downtown parking, steel cargo containers, industrial park appearance, age-friendly land use requirements and more. The next steps in the process will include the preparation of a draft Zoning Bylaw, a legal review and then a community meeting on the draft Zoning Bylaw. The adoption process will include final revisions, a public hearing with adoption anticipated for the summer of 2013.

Washing cars and helping hearts Lisa Carleton lisa@similkameenspotlight.com

At the Bridge Street Car Wash in Princeton, Tuesdays are heart days for the month of February. All funds collected from the car wash on Tuesdays will go directly to B.C. Children’s Hospital’s heart department. Tanya and Al Lawes, owners of Bridge Street Car Wash are quite familiar with B.C. Children’s Hospital. When their now five year old daughter Layna was born, they were informed that she had serious issues with her heart. Layna underwent

three surgeries and finally the implant of a pacemaker which she will have for the rest of her life. As she grows, the pacemaker will have to be moved and batteries replaced. Layna and her parents make a trip to the hospital a minimum of twice a year. The Lawes family are grateful for care Layna the received and continues to receive at B.C. Children’s Hospital. In order to “give back to those that helped us,” Tanya and Al take the Tuesday proceeds during ‘heart month’ February, and give back to B.C. Children’s

Cawston couple named Outstanding Young Farmers for 2013

WARNING: This is a message of a Global Bank Collapse God has called me to be a watchman. It’s time for people to wake up and recognize the urgency of this hour. There is no better way to invest money than in The King James Red Letter Edition Bible. The End Time Prophecies are being fulfilled before our eyes. There are only two classes of citizens in the entire world, Believers and Unbelievers. When we die there are only two places to spend our eternity—in Heaven or in Hell.  The choice must be made according to the lifestyle that we choose to live and to serve.  Sadly, many people choose the wrong Master and too often it is ‘SELF’. WARNING:  The Tribulation period is for seven years; 2013 to 2020, but God will cut short the time for the elect’s sake.     We are in a Spiritual Battle. The End Day Events are being played out on the world scene just as Jesus foretold in Matthew Chap. 24.  There is a War brewing that will involve every living human being.  That is a ‘Currency War’.  The occult One World Government is the culprit who has plotted the destruction that will be accomplished. Chairman Bernanke of the U.S. Federal Reserve  has warned that there could be a global bank collapse because the banking system can’t be supported any longer. From many sources the predictions claim the disaster will occur in February 2013.  The financial loss will be severe for the wealthy and investors.  The poor class will suffer equally because it will result in the cashless society being implemented.  The Bible warns us in Revelation 13. The counterfeit of the Creator’s Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit will appear on the scene to deceive many, even the elect if possible. The evil empire of the One World Government Money Masters are being controlled by Satan, The Anti Christ and the False Prophet. What will happen in 2013 will be so catastrophic, many times worse than the Great Depression that occurred from 1926 to 1935.  The only way anyone can buy or sell is to take the mark of the Beast on the right hand or forehead and bow down to worship his image. DO NOT TAKE THE MARK OF THE BEAST, COMMIT SUICIDE OR REJECT THE SAVIOUR OR YOU WILL BURN IN THE LAKE OF FIRE FOR ETERNITY ALONG WITH THE BEAST, THE ANTI CHRIST! Jesus said, “The only ones who will enter My Kingdom are the pure in heart and obedient to My commandments. Many who call themselves Christians do not read or live by My Word. Some think that going to Church once a week is good enough and then persue worldly things”. When I met Jesus He showed me that many say they are ‘depressed’ but they are ‘oppressed’ and suffer from loneliness as a separation from God, their Creator. He said, “They mask their feelings with drugs. Any chemical that is contrary to the natural makeup of the human anatomy is a DRUG.” Today is the day of Salvation, there may not be a tomorrow. Repent of your sin, ask God for His forgiveness, accept His only begotten Son, The Lord Jesus Christ, as your Saviour and Promise to serve Him by word and deed. “Put your trust in Me, The Great Physician. Have faith in Me and My Living Word. Your redemption was bought with shedding My blood on the Cross of Calvary. Be My Witness and spread the Gospel as I Am coming very soon for My Bride. I Am the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Permit Father God’s perfect will to be done in you.” His Handmaiden in the Hyways & Byways.

Cawston – January 27, 2013 – A fifth generation farmer and his wife have been named BC’s Outstanding Young Farmers for 2013. Thirty-year-old Troy Harker and his wife, Sara, also 30, of Cawston, the organic capital of Canada, 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 23rd. 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 run a family farm which 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 high-density 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 BC’s Top 5 Agrotourism Destinations and Eat Magazine’s Best Okanagan Farm. The BCOYF program is sponsored by BMO Bank of Montreal, BC Agriculture Council, BC Broiler Hatching Egg Commission, BC Egg Producers Association, BC Chicken Marketing Board, BC Milk Marketing Board, Bobcat Country Sales, Clearbrook Grain & Milling, Farm Credit Canada, Golden Valley Foods, Investment Agriculture Foundation of BC, Prairie Coast Equipment, Ritchie Smith Feeds, TD Canada Trust Agriculture Services, TerraLink Horticulture, and United Agri Systems. The Harkers will represent BC at the national OYF competition in Saskatchewan in November. The national competition is sponsored by AdFarm, Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, Bayer Crop Science, the Canadian Farm Business Management Council, CIBC and John Deere.

Canadian Liver foundation suggests Hepatitis C testing for those born 1965 -1975 The Canadian Liver Foundation recommends that all adults born between 1945 and 1975 undergo a test for hepatitis C. In Canada, chronic hepatitis C is most prevalent within this age group but risk-based testing has not been effective in identifying all infected adults. As the hepatitis C virus can be transmitted via any blood-to-blood contact and many adults are unaware of their own risk factors, widespread testing has a much higher probability of identifying those who contracted hepatitis C and have been living with it for many years. More than 300,000 people in Canada are living with chronic hepatitis C but less than half are aware of it. Since chronic hepatitis C causes no symptoms until it has destroyed much of the liver, those who are infected often are not diagnosed until the disease has reached an advanced stage. Left undiagnosed and untreated, chronic hepatitis C can lead to cirrhosis, liver cancer or liver failure. Currently hepatitis C is the leading indication for liver transplant in Canada Until now, the hepatitis C antibody test was recommended for individuals with recognized risk factors including injection drug use (even

a single episode), blood transfusions or use of blood products prior to 1990 or participation in medical procedures or immunization in countries where hepatitis C is common. Riskbased testing has not been widespread and patients continue to be diagnosed by ‘accident’. Unfortunately when risk-based testing has been adopted, risk factor recognition by patients or doctors is poor and as a result the diagnosis is only made when symptoms of advanced liver injury begin to appear. In August 2012, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control issued its recommendation that all adults born between 1945 and 1965 should have a one-time hepatitis C test. Based on the prevalence data in Canada and taking into account immigration from countries where hepatitis C is endemic, the CLF believes it would be prudent to expand the age bracket for testing to all adults born between 1945 and 1975. The hepatitis C antibody test is inexpensive and is covered by all provincial health care plans. Since early identification and intervention are critical to the effective treatment of hepatitis C, widespread screening of the adult population is warranted.

Healthcare community consultation Lisa Carleton lisa@similkameenspotlight.com

The Town of Princeton, Area H (RDOS), the Interior Health Authority (IHA), and the Save Our Hospital Coalition (SOHC) held a Princeton Healthcare Community Consultation on Jan. 29 at the Riverside Community Centre. The purpose of the consultation was to identify challenges facing healthcare in Princeton and area and to collect data that may be used in the development of an improved healthcare model for the community. The Interior Health Authority (although involved in the partnership and is supportive) and local media did not participate in the consultation as it is research based and stakeholder confidentiality is important to the process. Fifty stakeholders representing all walks of life and age ranges in Princeton and area as well as other communities were invited to attend the consultation. 40 invited attended and were broken up into four focus groups with a facilitator and asked to comment on or answer the following; “ - tell us about your experiences with health care, - outline positives in terms of health care, - tell about the challenges and barriers you see and provide concepts, innovations that you think would work.” Dr. Barbara Pesut from UBC-Okanagan, conducted the consultation. Dr. Pesut has been involved in healthcare since 1982 and worked at Princeton General Hospital and Ridgewood Lodge for several years early in her career. She is presently Associate Professor in the School of Nursing at UBCO and holds a Canada Research Chair in Health, Ethics, and Diversity. Dr. Pesut’s team will conduct further interviews with stakeholders who were unable to attend the consultation. The data collected from the consultation and interviews will be analyzed by a team of researchers from UBC Okanagan who will prepare a report that will be shared with the community. A few ideas out of the consultation were shared the next day in a news briefing, chaired by Ed Staples, vice president of Save Our Hospital Coalition. Councillor Marilyn Harkness spoke of possibilities in broadening the scope of pharmacists

and (nurse practitioners - ours currently she said is, “working well and is very much appreciated.”) She also stated that she felt positive about the consultation process. “I know the community wants an instant fix—it will take time, and we are very hopeful.” Area H Director Brad Hope spoke of the idea of a bus service to connect Princeton and points through to Penticton and the same with Osoyoos and Oliver to Penticton and then on to Kelowna to take patients to specialist appointments. He too, stated that he came away feeling “pleased and positive” about the consultation process. “We are optimistic about the process - we have positive things to work with,” said Ed Staples. “This is the first step - implementing ideas and working towards satisfying needs.” In order to clarify community confusion with the groups working on the hospital issues, it was asked “what the difference is between SOHC and the Community Hospital Forum run by members of Save Our Similkameen?” “The Save Our Hospital Coalition was formed in April to respond directly to the reduced services announced by IHA,” said Staples, “both groups have been working towards the same end.” Director Hope added, “Everyone is working towards getting a better health care model for our community—it’s not a competition.” If you are interested in learning more about the Save Our Hospital Coalition and the work they do please visit the website savepgh.ca

Last weekend, the number four ranked Princeton Senior Girls Basketball team hosted a seven team tournament that included the top five single A teams in BC. Princeton advanced to the final by defeating Rossland. Angela Marshall was named “player of the game”. In the second game, Princeton defeated number two ranked Mulgrave. Julia Reichert was named Player of the Game. In the final, Princeton went up against number one ranked Cedars Christian School from Prince George. There was a large, enthusiastic crowd cheering the home town Rebels on. It was a fast paced exciting game which saw many lead changes. Princeton led 27-20 at half time and Cedars ended up coming out on top 56-53 when the dust settled. Great man to man defence was played by the Rebels. Ciara Bamford was named offensive player of the game and tournament all star for her amazing outside shooting from the 3 pt line. It was a fantastic team effort and all Rebels played key roles throughout the tournament. The team players are Angela Marshall, Julia Reichert, Ciara Bamford, Destiny Earl, Kyla Coyne, Logan Littlejohn, Briana Musgrove, Greyson Antonick and Samantha Simons. Next up is the Okanagan Valley Championships in three weeks in Kelowna. Thanks to all the supporters.

Similkameen Spotlight February 6, 2013

Preparing breakfast in bed is a great way to surprise a loved one on Valentine’s Day, and the following recipe for “Mini Banana Blueberry Streusel Coffee Cakes”from Marguerite Marceau Henderson’s “Small Sweet Treats”(Gibbs Smith) can make a great addition to the most important meal of the day. Mini Banana Blueberry Streusel Coffee Cakes Makes 8 to 12 individual coffee cakes Crumb Topping 3/4 cup all-purpose flour 1/4 cup sugar 4 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces 1/4 cup chopped walnuts 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon Coffee Cake 1 cup all-purpose flour 1/4 cup sugar 11/2 teaspoons baking powder 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

CAPRICORN: Capricorn, shift your focus to your family for the next few days because you have to make some decisions that will affect them all. Listen to your gut feeling when making these decisions. AQUARIUS: Aquarius, there are some things around the house that need your attention, but you may be having trouble finding the motivation to tackle them just now. PISCES: Pisces, when an opportunity comes your way, you may want to take a pass because something better is on the horizon. ARIES: Aries, there are a few things you need to work out this week, but then you will be set for quite a while. Take the opportunity to recharge your batteries. TAURUS: Taurus, sometimes the things that are the hardest to come by are the ones that are most worth the effort. Think about this as you face obstacles. GEMINI: Gemini, contrary to what you believe, things at work will go on even if you take a few days off for a vacation. There may be some catching up afterward, but you can handle it. CANCER: Cancer, your mind may be churning, but worrying excessively over something will not help the situation. Therefore, focus on something else for a while. LEO: Leo, just when you think the week will go on without any excitement, something pops up and it’s just what you need to beat the doldrums. Expect time with friends. VIRGO: Virgo, sometimes you need to be tough on yourself to get things done, but you will be satisfied with the results when you push yourself. Focus on goals this week. LIBRA: Libra, a risk you take this week will pay off in a big way. You might be anxious to take a significant risk, but the eventual reward will be well worth it. SCORPIO: Scorpio, it may be challenging to find some initial support for a new idea because you are essentially charting new territory. Just give it time and people will come around. SAGITTARIUS: Slow down a little, Sagittarius. Moving faster will not get the job done to your satisfaction and then you only will have to do it all over again. Think through your options. FOR ENTERTAINMENT ONLY

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt 1 cup fresh blueberries 1/4 cup chopped walnuts 2 large eggs 2 large bananas, mashed 1 teaspoon vanilla extract Powdered sugar

In a medium size bowl, combine the flour, sugar and butter for the topping. With a pastry cutter, cut in the butter until the size of peas. Reserve 1/2 cup of the mixture in a small bowl and add the walnuts and cinnamon; set aside. In the bowl with the remaining flour mixture, add the first nine coffee cake ingredients. In another bowl, beat together the eggs, bananas and vanilla until just mixed. Add the egg mixture to

the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Grease an 8-section mini loaf pan or a 12-cup muffin tin with Baker’s Joy or vegetable spray. Divide the batter among the individual sections. Top evenly with the reserved crumb mixture. Bake on the middle rack of an oven preheated to 350 F. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes until puffed and center is set. Cool slightly before dusting with powdered sugar. PC132888

WICKS, Sophia Christina AGNES August 29, 1916 ~ January 16, 2013 It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Agnes Wicks. She passed quietly on January 16, 2013 in the presence of her son Bob and her daughter-in-law Chris at Ridgewood Lodge, in Princeton, B.C. Agnes spent her younger years in south Vancouver, some distance from the end of the streetcar. As she said, “we walked through the forest about a mile to get the streetcar to town�. She “finished� school at grade 8. Agnes had a brother Ken Owens and his wife Phillis also “90 somethings� that recently passed on, a warm and loving sister Mary, who passed many years back and brother John Owens (wife Sheila) who is the survivor of the four siblings. Agnes worked on the streetcars during the war years as a Conductor. She met Lyle Wicks (a motorman on the cars) over whom she was “boss�. That really did not change a great deal over the 63 years of marriage. Their life in Haney and then Victoria was active and rich. They returned to Lyle’s place of roots (Maple Ridge/Haney B.C.) in 2002 where he passed in 2004. Lyle brought a new dimension to the life of Agnes. After a stint driving buses for B.C. Electric in Vancouver, he embarked on a successful career in provincial politics. He, with others, founded the B.C. Social Credit Party in the late 1940’s. He and Agnes were politicians of the old school (honest, dedicated, and together relentless advocates for his constituents). He served the Province of British Columbia for close to a decade as Minister of Labour, Commercial Transport and Railways. Agnes worked tirelessly by his side, hosting endless political events, campaigning, and generally keeping the home fires burning for her tireless cabinet minister. Agnes blossomed from her humble beginnings. She learned to grasp political life with a glint in her eye and a regal manner, including Government House functions and balls, introductions to visiting royalty, and official functions of political life. She was proud to view from the “members’ gallery� her Lyle addressing Mr. Speaker and the assembled members of the legislature. She also enjoyed the friends and activities of the Eastern Star and the Daughters of the Nile. Agnes was active in lawn bowling, qualifying several years for the B.C. Summer games where she medalled regularly. She was an enthusiastic golfer, renowned for her putting. She crocheted, knitted, did petit point, all to a very high standard. There are heirlooms to pass on. After Lyle passed, Agnes lived in Vancouver for a time and then joined Bob and Chris in Princeton in 2011. Agnes is survived by her son Bob, his wife Chris, and grandchildren Lauren (Ellis), Connor Wicks, and Lisa McLean, great grand children; Hayden, Preston, Hannah, and Brody, and by her niece Lynn Owens-Whalen and husband Wilf, and many relations near and far. The family joins together in thanking the dedicated and caring staff and medical persons at Ridgewood Lodge and Princeton General Hospital for the care and attention she received in the past year. You all get a gold medal from Agnes. Agnes, in the words of a friend, “has gone to a well deserved rest�. She will be fondly remembered by very many for her smile and her dedicated manner.
