New operator brings new optimism

By Steve Arstad news@keremeosreview.com

The new Grist Mill site operator, Chris Mathieson of Mathieson Heritage Services, was chosen through a request for proposal process. Mathieson has an extensive and successful background as a 14-year veteran of the B.C. museum community. Most recently, he helped increase visits to the Vancouver Police Museum from 4,000 to 21,000 visits annually.

Robbie Killborn of Olalla was aware of a sudden, unexplained increase in his sister’s hydro bill in 2010, after a new digital meter was installed in the house they both lived in. That year saw their power useage inexplicably jump from around 18,500 kilowatt hours per year to 29,400 - with no apparent change in the way they were using electricity. That appears to be a separate issue, however,for when Killborn’s sister compared her useage for the same four month period - November to February this year and last - she found that for roughly the same number of hours useage, her bill had climbed by $550. The only changes between last year and this was a 6.5 per cent increase in January, the other change being the conservation rate structure. “Something has to be done about increases like this,” said Killborn, who said that he didn’t have enough money to buy new shoes this month after paying his hydro bill. He and his sister already practice conservation, having changed all of their incandescent bulbs to energy efficient compact fluorescents, and by turning the baseboard heaters in the house either down to low or off altogether. Faye Mimms is an Olalla resident who pays her Fortis bills on an equal billing plan. She saw a monthly bill averaging $220 rise to $296 in the past two months - and she has a gas bill on top of that. Mimms operates a small business on her property - a handful of low income rentals . “Some of the units aren’t as efficient as others,” she admits, adding that she understood an increase was coming and tried to prepare for it. Still, she was surprised to find how much more she was paying. Her rental units are similar in construcWas any consideration given to low income and pension households with respect to the conservation rate? The question was put forward to British Columbia Utilities Commission’s Alison Thorson, Director of Policy, Planning and Customer Relations. Her response: Yes, according to FortisBC’s application for the Residential Conservation Rate “while 14 per cent and 23 percent of customers in the <$20,000 and $20,000-$40,000 income categories respectively will experience an annual bill increase,

His residence saw a $550 increase using roughly the same amount of power between last winter and the 2013 season. tion to mobile units, and her tenants are also diligent in their energy use. Mimms said that the spike in costs makes it difficult - if not impossible - to offer affordable accommodation to her tenants, who simply don’t have any additional income. Ruth Sulentich, Communications Manager for Fortis, said that the power company was receiving feedback about the increase through their call centre, letters to the editor and the news media. Sulentich said Fortis planned to hold a community talk in Olalla to help residents with their conservation methods. The localized sessions will discuss rebates, energy saving tips, and rebates available to householders. Neil Pobran, Manager for Customer Communications with Fortis, said that the conservation rate took effect in July of 2012. It wasn’t noticed by Fortis customers until the winter months when households use more power. “The rate is designed to be a conservation rate,” he said, “in winter, customers are more likely to get billed under the higher rate, while conversely in the summer customers will get in under the threshold at the lesser rate.” Pobran said that the utility offers low income customers a free home energy evaluation and energy efficiency upgrades through their Energy Conservation Assistance Program (ECAP) Details are available at their website: http://www.fortisbc.com/Natuthe average customer in these categories will see bills decrease between 0.8 per cent and 6.7 per cent under any of the options.” Thorson further explained that consideration had been given to those communities or individual customers that had no alternative to electric power for their heating purposes. “The purpose of the rate is to encourage electricity conservation and while the commission did not specifically look at customers without access to natural gas, the commission specifically looked at

ralGas/Homes/Offers/EnergyConservationAssistanceProgram/Pages/ default.aspx Alison Thorson, Director of Policy, Planning and Customer Relations for the British Columbia Utilities Commission, told the Review that the conservation rate threshold of 800 KW hours per month came about after Fortis BC came up with 18 different options for the two tier rate. The 800 KW hours / month threshold represents the median residential consumption for Fortis BC customers - 50 per cent use less and 50 per cent use more. It was predicted that 95 per cent of customers would see a bill increase of 10 per cent or less. When questioned about the rate’s revenue neutral designation, Thorson said, “Revenue neutrality would be monitored through the regular ‘Revenue Requirements’ filings FortisBC makes with the Commission; the next of which is scheduled for May 2013 and will be a public process.” She enouraged customers to visit: www.bcuc.com to learn how to become involved in BC Utilities Commission proceedings. “ As well, the Residential Conservation Rate itself will be reviewed in early 2014. The revenue generated by the Residential Conservation Rate may be reviewed at that time as well. What happens to any surplus would be decided at the time the revenue from the Residential Conservation Rate is reviewed,” she added.

In the proceeding FortisBC proposed 18 different options for the two-tier rate and the current rate was chosen, in part, because 95 per cent of customers (including those with electric heat) would see a bill increase of 10 per cent or less. This impact was considered not “unduly punitive” to customers with electric heat. However, in the review of the rate that will take place in early 2014, FortisBC must specifically (state) how the rate impacts customers with electric heat.” e

Public meeting in Osoyoos to address zebra mussel threat By Steve Arstad news@keremeosreview.com The Okanagan Basin Water Board, its Okanagan WaterWise program and the Town of Osoyoos have teamed up with invasive species experts to hold a public meeting to discuss the potential threat of invasive zebra and quagga mussels infesting valley waters and how to keep them out. The meeting is next Thursday, April 4, from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Sonora Community Centre in Osoyoos, B.C. at 8505 68 Avenue. “This is the most important issue that has faced Osoyoos Lake and the waters of the Okanagan – on both sides of the border – since the arrival of Eurasian Watermilfoil,” noted Anna Warwick Sears, Executive Director for the OBWB. “In fact, an infestation of zebra and/or quagga mussels in our waters is an even more significant threat than milfoil, but there’s still time to do something.” Zebra and quagga mussels, which originate from Europe, were first introduced to the Great Lakes of Ontario in the 1980s in a container ship’s ballast water. Since then they have been spreading quickly through Ontario and Quebec and through several U.S. states, sometimes unknowingly, but mostly by recreational boaters. Today the mussels are as far west as Lake Mead, Nevada and the Red River just south of Manitoba, fouling beaches with sharp shells, encrusting boats, ruining sport fisheries, and more. Recent research conducted for the Water Board

Crime Stoppers crime of the week On Saturday March 23, at around 6:15 a.m, the Penticton RCMP responded to a report of a theft in the 100 block of Acacia Crescent by an intruder found inside the victims’ garage. The homeowner stated that they were awoken by suspicious noises. The home owner then went to investigate the noise and was confronted by a male suspect inside the attached garage of their home where the suspect demanded cash. The suspect then fled on foot with an undisclosed amount of cash which had been handed over by the homeowner. He was not located at that time and

the investigation into the incident is continuing. The male is described as 5’6” to 5’8”, small build and wearing dark clothing.

Princeton RCMP investigating second murder incident in a month By Steve Arstad news@keremeosreview.com For the second time in less than a month, Princeton RCMP are investigating murders. On April 1, 2013, two charges of second degree murder and a charge of attempted murder were laid against 49 year old John Ike Koopmans of Princeton. The accused made his first court appearance on April 2 in Penticton Provincial Court. The charges relate to the murders of Robert (Keith) Wharton (44 years of age) and Rosemary (Rose) Fox (32 years of age) and the attempted murder of a 48 year old male on

the evening of March 30, at a property located on Old Hedley Road in Princeton, B.C. All of the victims are residents of the community of Princeton. No further details regarding the investigation are being released at this time. Last month, Princeton RCMP investigated a homicide in Hedley. Police have yet to charge anyone in connection with that murder. Fatal accident near Hedley RCMP South Okanagan Traffic Services attend fatal collision East of Hedley At 4:45 a.m on March 30, a 1993 Ford Escort was westbound on High-

way 3 just east of Hedley, B.C. Upon entering a clockwise turn, the escort crossed the centerline into the oncoming lane. The driver overcorrected and lost control of the vehicle. The vehicle slid into an adjacent field on the south side of the highway. The escort then rolled into a hydro pole. The driver, a 28 year old male from Alberta, was deceased at the scene. The passenger, a 17 year old Hedley female sustained serious but non life threatening injuries. The passenger was transported to Penticton Hospital by ambulance. Alcohol and possibly speed are believed to be contributing factors.

New study calls for zero waste in B.C. Report says recycling can’t solve our pollution problems Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives British Columbians are familiar with the three R’s approach to waste management: reduce, reuse and recycle. But a new study from the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives shows that while we have made progress in recycling, we need to focus on reducing and reusing in order to protect our environment and climate. The study, Closing the Loop: Reducing Greenhouse Gas Emissions Through Zero Waste in BC, calls for a rethink of the province’s waste management policies, including proposals for new incineration capacity in Metro Vancouver. “Zero waste means that we proactively reduce the volume of materials entering the economy in the first place while supporting a high quality of life for consumers,” explains lead author Marc Lee. “A good model is beer bottles, which are re-used about 15 times before they are recycled due to deposit-

and-return systems.” A zero waste approach would move B.C. away from an economic system in which raw materials are extracted, processed into consumer goods and then trashed. Instead, in a “closed loop system,” products like appliances would be repaired and reused for as long as possible, then broken down into parts that could be reused in new products or, finally, recycled. The new model also emphasizes local economic benefits. Currently, most recyclable materials are exported to other countries for processing. Zero waste policies could create green jobs in B.C. by creating domestic capacity for recycling, and by creating jobs in repair, servicing and maintenance, and sorting and reusing bottles and containers. The authors estimate that if B.C. can move to aggressive reduction and recycling of materials by 2020, greenhouse gas emissions could be reduced by almost five million tonnes. This reduction would result from diverting organics from disposal and reducing the need for energy-intensive extraction and processing.

“This is an important opportunity to develop thousands of green jobs while wrestling with the big challenges coming our way: climate change, growing waste and resource depletion,” says Lee. The study’s recommendations include: Integrate GHG emissions reduction into waste management planning. Do not expand incineration (waste-to-energy) capacity; incineration not only creates a demand for more waste, but also releases GHGs. Require provincewide composting. Phase out single use products and packaging. Ban or tightly regulate toxic or non-recyclable materials..

The Review

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

Editorial Tough competing with weather in the tourism business Easter weekend generally marks the first camping trip of the season for many die hard Okanagan - Similkameen RV and trailer owners. This year was no exception as Canadian campers hit Highways 3, 3A and 97 throughout the Easter long weekend. The sunny skies and warm temperatures didn’t hurt either. Many of those Canadians that hit the road this past weekend ended up heading for a well known destination amongst the RV crowd - the municipal campground located at the rodeo grounds in Omak, Washington. A quick tour of the park on Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday or Monday revealed an extremely high per centage of British Columbia plates. Many of those who make the short journey across the line to Omak are regulars, especially during the Easter weekend. “It was nice at home when we left, but it’s nicer here,” said one weekend arrival, noting that the weather could usually be counted on to be a little warmer and sunnier than north of the 49th parallel. Add to that the comparative value one gets for camping fees, alcohol and some consumer goods, as well as the campground’s convenience and proximity to things Canadians seek south of the border, and Omak scores pretty high marks for many RV enthusiasts who are putting the first kilometres of the year on their units. Local tourism planners might do well to note Okanagan- Similkameen residents’ view of camping choices during the early spring, if for nothing else than to avoid wasting their promotional efforts. For in spite of our best efforts to promote our own campgrounds, (which surely have their superior merits at certain times of the year), there may be some instances where we need to realize that we can’t compete - and put our promotional efforts to use in the places where we can.

Greenhouse gas leaks from trust By Tom Fletcher Black Press The Pacific Carbon Trust orchestrated a months-long campaign of calls and letters to discredit a report from B.C.’s Auditor General on its first two big carbon offset projects, before it could be released. Just as the audit report was about to be made public, the trust, a Crown corporation created at taxpayer expense, participated in the leaking of selected critical letters to media outlets. Then the Speaker of the B.C. legislature, Bill Barisoff, made a final, clumsy effort to delay the release of the report. As soon as it was out, Environment Minister Terry Lake tried to discredit it, by blustering about all the highly paid experts who swore up and down that a forest reserve near Kootenay Lake, and a gas flaring reduction project near Fort Nelson, were bona fide carbon offsets worth $6 million of taxpayers’ money. The audit states in plain

language, with charts and timelines, that the $6 million was basically given away for nothing. I look forward to further audits on this carbon offset scheme, assuming it survives after the May election, because these two projects aren’t the only boondoggles. The Pacific Carbon Trust was set up in 2008 as part of former premier Gordon Campbell’s climate change program. To make the B.C. government’s operations “carbon neutral,” the government and all of its agencies were required to pay the trust $25 per tonne for their carbon dioxide emissions from fuel use. In 2011 alone, B.C. universities paid $4.46 million to the trust. B.C.’s 60 school districts paid a total of $5.36 million the same year, and the province’s six health authorities paid $5.79 million. The money is supposed to go to projects that capture carbon, thus “offsetting” the heating of schools, the fuel burned by ambulances and so forth.

The 55,000-hectare forest reserve is known as Darkwoods. The audit shows that the Nature Conservancy of Canada decided in 2006 to buy it, using $25 million of federal taxpayers’ money. The deal closed in 2008, the same year the PCT was formed. From 2008 to 2010, the trust bought 450,000 tonnes of carbon offset, based on independent evaluations that all rested on the assumption that Darkwoods would be clear-cut logged. Since the forest was already owned by Canada’s leading conservancy, this assumption makes no sense. Was the conservancy going to log it, or flip it to someone who would, after accepting $25 million in tax money to acquire it? Legally, it could not. (The assumption that logging releases all of the carbon in a forest is also false. Lumber actually sequesters carbon far longer than trees, which eventually die and rot.) The audit found a similar case against EnCana’s flare reduction program,

which the company used on many wells before the trust started offering money. EnCana was saving money as well as reducing emissions without collecting offsets. Therefore, the audit concluded, neither of these projects was a credible offset because the emissions savings would have occurred anyway. Here’s the next Pacific Carbon Trust project that should be audited. In a complicated transaction, the trust bought offsets from something called the Great Bear Carbon Credit Limited Partnership. Yes, this is the world-famous forest on B.C.’s North Coast that was subject to a preservation deal hammered out between the Coastal First Nations, the B.C. government and three U.S.-backed environmental groups. That was in 2006. The offset purchases were in 2009 and 2010, years after detailed preservation areas were mapped and codified in law. Again, the trust paid for forest that was already preserved.

What’s in store for the future? To the Editor: When I sit on a sunny day and look at the sky and dream, I see dozens if not hundreds of very large air craft making vapour trails across the sky. This is going on around the world. Millions of gallons of oil and gasoline are being constantly burned. As you all know, we have oceans of water that is evaporated up from the oceans and is constantly rained down again to be recirculated again, with no end. Have you ever thought that oil and gasoline, when once burned, are gone forever, and will some day be all used up? Have you ever thought of what transpor-

tation is going to be like without gas and oil? There is a limit to all chemical fuels, but do you see a future where a 747 is flying at 40,000 feet and the power is steam with wood or ? I am 92 years old and have seen a lot. What will you youngsters see in your 90 to 110 years of your future? I can only guess. The media tells us that there were some five or more world populations from Stone Henge, dinosaurs, the pyramids, etc. that were wiped out by earth calamity and are we on our way now?

Why the Kitimat Refinery project should go ahead Contributed by Jim Shepard I first heard of this concept from David Black a number of years ago. At the time I was skeptical of its chances. My initially negative attitude was based mainly on my experience of 10 years service on the board of directors of Imperial Oil. Since I was accustomed to the discussion of petroleum economics centered in Calgary, I saw no need for a refinery in Kitimat. That attitude was based on the fact that there had not been a new refinery built in North America in many years. And any needed increase in petroleum production was achieved by expansion of existing refineries throughout North America. But after my service with Imperial Oil, I went on to serve four years at Canfor which led to my nine visits to China in search of lumber markets. My exposure to the phenomenal expansion of China’s economy opened my eyes to the true merit of the Kitimat refinery concept. It made me realize that it would not be just another refinery relying on the North America market but rather a refinery that would supply the vast appetite of China for petroleum products. The challenge will be to draw the attention of Asian investors who would see the value to this investment. It appears that David Black, after many years of effort, is nearing an agreement that could provide the vast capital infusion needed to make this refinery initiative a reality. The appetite for oil products for all Asia will continue to grow and the Kitimat refinery is ideally situated to take advantage. Asian countries, especially China, are very interested in securing sustainable supply of resources that will flow freely without undue trade barriers like surprises with taxes, regulations or tariffs . Canada has a good reputation as a free trade country that can be relied on as a dependable source of supply. Now is a very opportune time to attract the vast investment needed to make the Kitimat refinery go ahead. David Black, with his years of dilligence , deserves our appreciation for displaying the foresight and courage to invest his time, money and reputation to help bring along this huge initiative. The positive merits of the Kitimat refinery are so profound that this project is really beyond any political persuasion. Any and all supporters of NDP, Liberal, Conservative or even Green should see the tremendous benefits that would come to B.C. with this project. This initiative will involve the investment

of many billions of dollars. That’s for sure. It’s hard for any of us to visualize a million let alone a billion of any thing. So lets look at the “on the ground” facts of such an undertaking for all of us in B.C. Lets start with the big picture. When it comes to the benefits of a petroleum cycle from well exploration to the gas station, the jurisdiction that hosts the refining process enjoys a huge portion of the value addition to the raw material. For the KRC Project that would mean several thousand mostly trade union jobs for the multi-year term of the construction phase. It would also mean the creation of over 3,000 permanent jobs for the operation and supply support of the refinery when running. This refinery would be processing 175 million barrels per year which means the tax revenue that could go toward healthcare, education, vital services for the disabled and elderly would be immense. But job creation and tax revenue is not the only desirable feature of the KRC. It also would provide much lower risk to the marine environment. The shipments out of the refinery would be finished product like aviation fuel, gasoline and diesel These .products if ever spilt would be much less impactful on the marine environment. They would also be transported in smaller ships. I know there are those on both sides of the political aisle that address this as a political issue. And I would disagree with both. This is a project that can be attractive to all political stripes. Trade unions would see a significant increase in jobs and memberships. Hospitals and schools across the province would see an improvement in government funding. Business activity especially in the challenged north west B.C. would be very positively impacted. And those with a concern for the threat of marine spills would see a significantly reduced exposure for the environment. Based on the huge positive impact this initiative could have on B.C. , I think the question should not be if we want it....but rather, how can we help make sure that the petroleum world sees this as an attractive way to invest billions of shareholder capital. Jim Shepard is the retired President of Finning and Canfor, two of B.C.’s largest companies, and a past Director of Imperial Oil.

Spring into composting with RDOS workshops RDOS press release The Regional District of OkanaganSimilkameen invites residents to ‘Spring into Composting’ by hosting a region wide compost bin sale and free workshop series. With the right equipment and know how composting can be easy, save you money and make your plants bloom to their full potential. This year the RDOS has partnered with private businesses and municipalities for a two week pre-sale of compost bins and the Green Cone. The pre-sale will last from April 1 to April 14. Residents can come into participating locations and order bins during those two weeks. The bins will then be delivered to the locations for pickup by residents in early May. In Keremeos, visit Don and Anna’s Greenhouse and Garden Centre or the Village of Keremeos Municipal Office. The FreeGarden Earth Compost Bin will be sold for $44 plus taxes. An attractively curved black container, the Freegarden Earth Compost Bin helps break down garden waste, leaves, uncooked fruits and vegetables. It is a great system for creating valuable compost. The Green Cone will be sold for $104.85 plus taxes. This system is buried partially in the ground where it breaks down all types of food waste, meat and even dog waste directly in the soil. This system does not take yard waste so it is a great compliment to an existing compost bin. Please note some smaller government offices involved in the sale may not be

equipped to accept all credit or debit cards. Residents are advised to call ahead for payment options. To learn more about how to use the units everyone is invited to a local, free composting workshop. The first of the ten available compost workshops kicked off at Whole Foods Market in Penticton on Tuesday April 2. On Saturday, April 6 there will be a 1 p.m. composting workshop and then a 3 p.m. worm composting workshop at Art Knapp’s Plantland and Florists. On Saturday April 13, composting workshops will be held at Don and Anna’s Greenhouse and Garden Centre in Keremeos at 10 a.m. and then at Giardino Penticton Nursery at 1 p.m. Other free workshops will be held in Princeton, Oliver, Keremeos, Osoyoos and Okanagan Falls. See the workshop table at the end of this press release for full details. Residents should watch their mail box for flyers detailing purchase locations and dates and times of workshops. For more information contact the RDOS Solid Waste Division at 250-490-4129, e-mail info@rdos.bc.ca or visit www.rdos. bc.ca.

RDOS offers rebate in the Wood Stove Exchange Program Great Okanagan and Similkameen Wood Stove Exchange Program RDOS press release Do you heat with wood? If so, here’s a chance for you to upgrade your old wood stove or wood fireplace insert to a cleaner burning unit and save some money while improving local air quality. Until April 30, municipal and rural residents of the RDOS can receive a $250 rebate when they replace and render unusable their old wood stove or wood insert with a new EPA/CSA emission-approved wood, gas, pellet or electric appliance. But don’t delay as this offer is limited to the first 40 exchanges. Participating retailers are also offering upfront a discount of $150 or more. They have all the information needed as well as documentation that shows the emission ratings of all the new stoves. In many valley communities, smoke from wood burning units is the greatest source of particulate matter next to open burning. Particulate matter is one of the main pollutants that leads to poor air quality and can have serious health impacts. Upgrading is important, but equally important is

the operation of a wood stove, the firewood used, and the chimney. New EPA wood stoves when operated correctly will reduce smoke pollution by 90 per cent and use 1/3 less wood. Chimney smoke is a sign of an inefficient burn, produces unnecessary air pollution and wastes wood. Burn only clean dry wood; do not burn wood with glue, paint or treated wood. A moisture meter is an excellent tool to measure the woods moisture content and it should read between15 – 20 per cent. Wood that is too dry, such as kiln-dried wood, is great wood for a campfire but not for wood stove use. Kiln dried wood burns too hot and can damage your stove. Wood with more than 20 per cent moisture will smoke, creating more air pollution and you will lose the benefit of the heat as all the energy generated goes to boiling off the water in the wood. For more information on the Great Okanagan Similkameen Wood Stove Exchange Program visit one of the participating retailers: Princeton Builders Mart, Bob’s Stove Repair, Paquette Heating, Accent Living, Okanagan Home Centre, Penticton Home Hardware, and OK Falls Red Barn. You can also obtain information on the RDOS website: www.rdos.bc.ca (click on Departments - Public Works - Air Quality - Wood Heating).

Residents along White Lake Road are seeing some of their properties partially flooded due to excessive surface water during the past few weeks, like this one at the corner of Saddlehorn Drive and White Lake Road. The region has been known for water shortages during recent years. Several long time residents of the area say they have not seen conditions like it in the White Lake area since the early 1980s. A winter of heavy snowfall accumulation and ground saturation are two theories behind the excess water flow this year.

KEEPING YOU INFORMED AND UP TO DATE ON LOCAL

ymcaworkbc.ca

The Village of Keremeos and the Keremeos Irrigation District have worked co-operatively through the years to bring Keremeos, and the irrigation district residents some of the best water in British Columbia. We have continually upgraded the system as we could afford, while keeping our water and irrigation rates among the lowest in British Columbia. One big ticket upgrade that we have been working on for a number of years is the construction of a much larger reservoir. If we have a power outage, major fire, or other problems, the present system only has about five minutes of reserve capacity during peak flow periods, before we begin to lose pressure in the system. This leaves the system exposed to possible contamination with back flow from external sources. The proposed new reservoir will increase the storage capability of the system to 45 minutes, and will greatly reduce our risks of running out of water, should one of these events occur. A number of events have come together where the irrigation district feels that now is the time to address this issue. 1) Interest rates are still at an all-time low, and (subject to residents approval), The Village of Keremeos has proposed to go to the Municipal Finance Authority, where they can get better financing rates than the Keremeos Irrigation District could get on our own. This will reduce the overall interest costs of the project, and could represent considerable savings. 2) The Keremeos Irrigation District has been budgeting additional revenue for this type of capital upgrade, and putting these funds in reserve, so this annual revenue which we already collect, will go to the village to pay for the funds that are borrowed for the project. As a result there will be no additional tax or water toll costs to the village or the Keremeos Irrigation District taxpayers. 3) Interior Health has indicated in a letter to the irrigation district, that they support this project, and the increased reservoir size will not require us to chlorinate the water system, as it is not a prescriptive requirement under “The BC Drinking Water Protection Act”. 4) The village has been able to get a $300,000 grant from the Federal Government Municipal Gas Tax revenues to go towards this project, and reduce the capital

costs we have to finance. This grant was hard to get, and will likely not be available in the future for this project. 5) The Keremeos Irrigation District has been setting aside funds for these major capital projects for many years and also has about $300,000 which will be used to construct the water lines and other infrastructure to link up the reservoir to our system. This will reduce the amount of funds we will need to borrow for this project. 6) The sluggish construction market should allow us to get good competitive bids as many contractors are looking for additional work. Other points to consider in reservoir decision Backup power supplies (generators) are only useful during extended power outages which do not occur often. They do not address the main reason we need additional storage capacity or any other issues during regular normal operations The reservoir is being designed to facilitate water circulation in the reservoir to insure fresh water in all parts of the reservoir. It will be 90 per cent buried and not overly visible, as well it will be fully secured and protected with tamper/vandal proof accesses The village will need to borrow up to $955,000 to fund this project; this figure includes $200,000 as a contingency in case there are unforeseen cost increases. We will do our best to keep the project within, or below the proposed budget amount, and KID will fund the full cost of borrowing these funds on an annual basis. There will be no increase in village property taxes. There will be a drop in open house on April 8 at Victory Hall from 4 to 7 p.m. A referendum to approve this borrowing for Village of Keremeos residents will be held on April 27 with advance polls on April 17 and 22. We have reprinted some information on this project which you can pick up at the Keremeos Irrigation District office on Tuesdays or Fridays, or at the village office. Also the village has made this information available on their web site at: www.Keremeos.ca. Thank you for taking the time to read this and we encourage you to come to the open house on April 8 at Victory Hall, call us at 250-499-5651 or email us at kid@nethop.net if you require additional information. Kevin Huey is in the office on Tuesdays at 712-6th Ave. to happily answer any questions you may have regarding this important proposal.

The Atacama Large Millimetre Array

On March 13, a major astronomical facility was officially opened. This radio telescope, known as the Atacama Large Millimetre Array (ALMA), will be a front-line astronomical tool for decades to come. Located on the high and very arid Atacama Plateau in Chile, it is an international project with Canada as a major participant. This instrument, which consists of 66 12-m diameter dishes, is designed to measure and map the millimetre wavelength emissions from space.

These are short radio waves that are close to the infrared part of the spectrum. To deal with these short wavelengths, the antenna surfaces have to be accurate to within a fraction of the thickness of a human hair, in all weathers. Unlike the longer radio wavelengths, millimetre waves are strongly affected by the atmosphere, particularly water vapour, hence ALMA being located in a high, dry place. There are some other instruments in the world capable of observing in this technically difficult part of the radio spectrum, but none even come close to the sensitivity and imaging power of ALMA. Even in these early days, this radio telescope is showing us things we have never been able to see before.

Millimetre waves are produced in two main ways. Any material having a temperate of a few degrees above absolute zero (-273C) emits them, so we can use this radio telescope to image clouds of gas and dust, such as those we see in our galaxy and others. Of particular interest are the collapsing and rotating clouds that are in the process of forming new stars and planets. Just as interesting are the radio signatures of the chemicals making up those clouds. They have signatures at millimetre wavelengths, so using instruments such as ALMA, we can detect them and measure their amounts, and even how they are moving. ALMA can also map where the different chemicals are located in the clouds and how and why they are reacting with one another.

Although we are curious about “cosmic chemistry” for its own sake, we are also interested because we want to know how the recipe for making living creatures came about. When our universe first cooled enough for the first elements to form, those primordial elements were hydrogen, helium and lithium. Stars formed from this mixture, and obtained energy during their lives by turning these elements into others, such as oxygen, phosphorus, nitrogen, sulphur, and also metals such as iron and nickel. Then, when those first, extra-bright stars exploded at the ends of their lives, they made gold, silver, uranium, lead, platinum and the rest of the elements we know today. This “nuclear waste” was added to the cosmic clouds, and over millions of years,

chemistry got to work, making water, ammonia, ethanol, methanol, formaldehyde and countless other chemicals. Many of these are key ingredients of life as we know it. One intriguing early result from ALMA, thanks to its unprecedented sensitivity, is that the first stars formed in the young universe even earlier than we thought, between one and two billion years after the Big Bang, which took place 13.7 billion years ago. Jupiter dominates the southwestern sky during the night. Saturn rises around 10 p.m. The Moon will be at last quarter on the 2nd and new on the 10th. Ken Tapping is an astronomer with the National Research Council’s Dominion Radio Astro-physical Observatory, Penticton.

Kamloops Fire Centre urges caution with outdoor burning Michaela Swan, Kamloops Fire Centre

The Kamloops Fire Centre is asking the public to exercise caution with any outdoor burning activities this spring. As the snow melts, dried grass from last summer is uncovered and that material can be highly flammable. Almost all wildfires at this time of the year are caused by people and are therefore preventable. Homeowners and industry personnel are encouraged to consult the B.C. FireSmart manual and take the following precautions:

* Ensure that enough people, water and tools are on hand to control the fire and prevent it from escaping. * Do not burn during windy conditions. Weather conditions can change quickly and the wind may carry embers to other combustible material and start new fires. * Create a fireguard at least one metre around the planned fire site by clearing away twigs, grass, leaves and other combustible material. * If you are planning a large burn, consider conducting smaller burns around the perimeter before-

hand to create a fuel break and help stop the fire from spreading beyond its intended size. Each of these fires should be kept small and must be completely extinguished before starting a new fire. * Never leave a fire unattended and make sure that your fire is completely extinguished and the ashes are cold to the touch before you leave the area. If you are planning to do any large-scale industrial burning or conduct a grass burn over 0.2 hectares (Category 3 fires), you must obtain a burn registration number ahead of time by calling 1 888 797-1717.

Sarah Trudeau of the Community Foundation of the South Okanagan is pictured with the new Chairman of the Foundation’s local committee, Wilfrid Mennell. An advisory committee of 13 members will be established to advise and promote the funds and projects of the Foundation as they relate to the Lower Similkameen. The committee will be called “Community Foundation’s Working Committee of The Lower Similkameen”. For 90 years, Canada’s community foundations have worked to build better places to live, work and play. The foundations exist through the endowments and philanthropy of people and organizations who give back. Thanks to an anonymous donor, Sarah has been hired for a three year term to work with communities in the South Okanagan and Similkameen.

RDOS staff discuss bio composting with regional district directors By Steve Arstad news@keremeosreview.com Solid Waste Management Coordinator Cameron Baughen discussed bio composting with regional district board members at the Environment and Infrastructure Committee meeting on March 21. Baughen delivered a power point presentation outlining considerations the board should be cognizant of as they move towards the development of organics waste handling infrastructure. The regional district, as part of their solid waste management plan in 2012, called for the increased diversion of organics from landfills in the region. A key strategy of the plan is the development of local composting facilities capable of handling food waste, yard waste and waste water bio-solids. Baughen first pointed out to the board what they did not want - sensational headlines outlining

disagreeable odours that tend to emanate from organic waste processing facilities. He warned the board to beware of the pitfalls in the establishment of a bio waste facility, citing such issues as: - poorly chosen locations - cost cutting leading to problems and overblown expenses - lack of regulations - failure to provide carrots by working with private composters. Baughen noted that government’s primary concern was odour issues. The consultative process towards the regional district’s bio handling facility begins this summer with consultations over the draft bylaw and discussions with identified landowners. Request for proposal criteria, a comparison of private and public sector options and a non-binding decision on siting is slated for completion by the winter of 2014. Baughen concluded his pre-

sentation by reinforcing a “spend to save” philosophy, noting that composting could be safely done anywhere, but becomes much more expensive and tougher to do the closer the facility gets to “receptors.” Keremeos Director Manfred Bauer noted that the high costs of organic composting would make it very difficult to bring the program to rural areas of the regional district. Baughen admitted that commercial operations generated most of the area’s organic waste, with Penticton alone producing 70 per cent. Baughen also noted that 20 per cent of household waste was organic in origin. “There is no easy solution anymore,” Baughen admitted, “the next steps are going to be much more expensive.” Area “C” Director Allan Patton also saw the program as an urban rather than rural one.

Pension incomesplitting – why it works and how to do it Even for younger people, doing the splits can be difficult but, believe it or not, doing the splits becomes easier as you mature. Of course, what we’re talking about here is not physically doing the splits but financially – as in splitting your pension income with a spouse or common-law partner to save on taxes. The federal government allows eligible retirees to save on income tax by letting couples shift up to 50% of the higher earner’s eligible pension income to the lower earning partner who is taxed at a lower rate, reducing the tax bite for both of you. (By the way, you don’t actually have to pay the shifted income to your partner, you simply report it for tax purposes.) To qualify for pension income-splitting, you and your partner must be Canadian residents and either married or living in a common-law relationship. Regardless of your age, income from these sources is eligible for income splitting: ◘ Lifetime pension, bridging payments, or annuity payments from a registered pension plan or foreign pension plan. ◘ Payments to a surviving spouse from investments held within a Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP) or Registered Retirement Income Fund (RRIF) annuity contract resulting from the death of the original annuity owner. At age 65, income from these sources also becomes eligible for pension incomesplitting: ◘ Payments from your investments held within a RRIF. ◘ The interest component of the annuity payments under a contract purchased with non-registered funds. You can qualify for pension income split-

MANAGING Your Money ting even if you are receiving a periodic pension benefit and have started a second career. But your income may change year-to-year, so you should frequently re-evaluate to determine if you still qualify for pension incomesplitting and the percentage of income that should be transferred to the lower earner in order to maximize tax savings. Pension income-splitting is a valuable taxreduction strategy for most retirees – but to be certain it’s right for you, check out the tax implications of income-splitting -- and get good info on other tax-saving strategies – by talking to your professional advisor. This column, written and published by Investors Group Financial Services Inc. (in Québec – a Financial Services Firm), and Investors Group Securities Inc. (in Québec, a firm in Financial Planning) presents general information only and is not a solicitation to buy or sell any investments. Contact your own advisor for specific advice about your circumstances. For more information on this topic please contact your Investors Group Consultant.
