Hospital Auxiliary provides comfort to patients Left to right: Laila Bird, vice president, Char Smith, president, Carol Tyson RN Patient Care Coordinator and Educator, Mitzie Hilmstedt, treasurer, Margaret Trehearne, secretary. Missing is Ann Middleton, 2nd vice president/Thrift Shop Manager. At Princeton General Hospital on Friday, April 4, the Hospital Auxiliary presented a cheque to Carol Tyson to pay for new mattresses.

Wendy Bentley/Spotlight

The Princeton General Hospital Auxiliary are very happy to announce that two Alternating Airflow mattresses have finally arrived at the hospital. The Auxiliary have bought one mattress for the hospice/palliative care patients in the hospital and another for Ridgewood Lodge. These mattresses, which cost about $5,300.00 each, provide comfort and prevent bed sores and were described as amazing by someone who experienced one. The mattress for the hospital replaces one bought by the auxiliary seven years ago which was held together with duct tape after many years of use. A big thank you to all who support the Hospital Auxiliary Thrift Shop activities.

Questions for candidates on health care Voters in rural British Columbia are very concerned about the state of health care in their communities. Support Our Health Care (SOHC), in conjunction with the BC Health Coalition, has prepared a list of six questions dealing with rural health care issues. On March 18, these questions were sent to the four candidates running in the Fraser-Nicola riding, asking them to respond by April 2nd. To date, SOHC has received submissions from Michael Beauclair of the BC Conservative Party and Jackie Tegart of the BC Liberal Party. When the remaining candidates

respond they will be posted as well.

Tough to compete with weather Black Press Guest Editorial

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.

YourOPINION

Writer disagrees with Mr. Tom Fletcher Dear Editor, The recent release of a report by the BC Auditor General has led to a vigorous debate on the future of carbon neutral government. As a seller of carbon credits to the Pacific Carbon Trust, the Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) looks forward to any clarity that may result in the BC carbon market. However, a recent editorial in this newspaper (“Greenhouse gas leaks from Pacific Carbon Trust” by Tom Fletcher), perpetuates factual errors that fail to inform any debate. Acquisition of a conservation project is the beginning of our work, not the end. When NCC purchased Darkwoods in 2008, our expensive, long-term commitment to the conservation lands began. From the outset, revenue from carbon sales was seen as critical to supporting this stewardship effort. Without the possibility of carbon sales NCC could not have undertaken a project of the size and scope of Darkwoods. Yet, those facts are conveniently overlooked by Mr. Fletcher. Further he fails to understand the baseline used to calculate stored carbon at Darkwoods. Independent evaluations were not based on the possibility of NCC clear-cutting the property, but rather on what would have happened had NCC not acquired Darkwoods. The alternative to NCC ownership was acquisition by a market-based buyer. The land would have been intensively logged and subdivided. The difference between that scenario and the current conserved property forms the basis for carbon valuation. Mr. Fletcher asks, rhetorically if NCC would have logged Darkwoods. “Legally, it could not,” he writes. On the contrary,

NCC does log the Darkwoods site. We operate a small, sustainable harvest based on conservation values that supports the property and the community. In fact, overall our ownership of Darkwoods has resulted in a $13 million economic benefit to the community, to date. The Darkwoods Forest Carbon project was the first of its kind undertaken in Canada. The project is certified under the Verified Carbon Standard; a standard that ensures a carbon project follows internationally-recognized protocols and has tangible environmental benefits. The Nature Conservancy of Canada spent three years developing the project, and exercised due diligence at every step while working with various industry experts. The project also fulfilled all provincial regulations and met all standards for Carbon Offsets. More importantly, Darkwoods is a world-class conservation project. Without revenue from forest carbon, the long-term protection of this vital 55,000 hectare property and the fate of animals and plants that find a haven there would be in jeopardy. The proceeds from the carbon sales went back into the long-term stewardship of Darkwoods—for the sake of nature and the people of British Columbia. Darkwoods ensures in perpetuity, British Columbians will see the magnificent forest for the trees. Sincerely, Tom Swann Associate Regional Vice-President, BC The Nature Conservancy of Canada

Let’s go back to the promises of the last election Dear Editor; As we are heading to another round of promises from our “Politicians,” I think we should go back to the promises from the last elections. First thing that comes to mind is the “Hated Sales Tax”, and how the premier at the time was sent to exile with the Royalties in the UK to think about his actions. Some new kind of punishment don’t you think? While our politicians are using big words, integrity, honesty, honour, represent and even a word like democracy, I am thinking of words like, inept, corrupt and deceitful, their big pensions, perks, prestige and power. Since the last election I have come to

the conclusion that not even one politician we elected at last election can be trusted and definitely not honourable, as they like to be called. We are the people who are doing the hiring, so why are we letting them forget who the real bosses are in British Columbia? One of the heroes of freedoms and the democracy, Gandhi once said, “be the change you wish to see in the world”. We did fight the “Hated Sales Tax,” and won, but our politicians have not learned a thing from it. Yukon Eric Holopainen Princeton, BC

Ticked off about tick report Thanks to the editor Dear Editor, Comments: I saw your article in volume 64 issue 14: “Ticks Are Back” And I wanted to inform you that you mentioned the Wood Tick and said “it does not carry Lyme disease” Well that is not true. I was bitten by a tick years back and developed Lyme Disease. I had extensive blood tests done and each one came back with Lyme Disease Positive. We had a deer hit by a car out in front of our place and it was covered in live ticks.  We collected 5 ticks off that carcass  and sent them directly to be tested for Lyme disease which 4 out of the 5 ticks came back positive for Lyme disease. I live out the highway about 3 kilometers east of Bromley Rock and had people that owned acreage right next to us and the wife developed Lyme disease from a tick bite and she was severely disabled from it, they ended up selling their property and moving closer to Hope where the only Lyme literate doctor is Dr. Ernie Murakami. I also know of numerous other reported cases of people, camping up in the Similkameen and getting bitten by Lyme infected ticks. So you may want to rethink telling people that the ticks up here do not carry Lime Disease.  It is always better to be safe than sorry.  Thanks for listening. Alda McCulloch Ed. note: the original article referred to in this letter was submitted by Interior Health. The article does not say that there is no Lyme disease here, just that the tick (Ixodes pacificus) that carries Lyme disease is more common in the coastal areas.

Dear Editor, Regarding the editorial that appeared in your newspaper April 3, 2013; I would like to say that I not only enjoyed it, but echo very much your sentiments in regards to this “Idle Talk”. After living in the area for over 10 years, I have experienced firsthand the damage gossip can cause, and how irresponsible the people that engage in it are. Mostly, individuals with no consciousness as to its effect, and if they are purposely trying to cause harm, they should be aware of something called: slander, to which they are liable in a court of law. In the past, myself and my friends have been victims of such talk, to which I most often refused to respond and give it any power. The important thing is to understand that actions speak louder than words and if we were to examine any individual’s actions, the truth is bound to come out sooner or later. Thank you Lisa for your courage, and for the editorial. Most sincerely, Marcels A. Toro Garland Hedley BC

Museum plans for 2013 Lisa Carleton lisa@similkameenspotlight.com

On March 30 of this year, the Princeton Museum opened its doors with limited Spring hours. On Saturdays and Sundays the museum will be open from 12 to 4 p.m., until summer hours begin in July. Volunteers are most welcome to join. This year is “all about the kids,” said museum manager, Robin Lowe-Irwin, “it is important that they feel excited and engaged.” The summertime exhibition at the museum will be all about toys—history and celebration of the joys of childhood. Plans to expand on the successful summer camp programs for kids are well underway. Last years programs were a huge hit.(CSI Camp, Archaeology Camp, Girl Guide sleep overs etc) The museum board hopes to increase its volunteer base. There are a number of projects they would like to see come to fruition. Outbuilding improvements, digitization of the newspaper and photo collections—to just name a few. Although the museum has applied for grant funding, board members are working hard towards self sustainability. Revenue generating ideas such as; museum rentals, (private parties, meetings etc) gold panning tours, book sales, photo

sales, research and gift shop expansion are being discussed and implemented. Participation in the upcoming Outback Jacks Flea Market is planned as well. Engagement with the community is priority for museum board members. Community group visits are encouraged and enjoyed, school field trips welcomed and birthday parties may also be held at the museum. The latest in beautification and enhancement of the Princeton Museum and Archives is the installation of the Museum Donor Tree. This tree will house the names of individuals, businesses and organizations who have donated to the Princeton Lisa Carleton/Spotlight Museum. Manager of the museum, Robin Lowe-Irwin stands Lowe-Irwin and friend beside the freshly created Donor Tree. The tree Richard Simpson created the tree will be decorated with leaves, birds and butterflies out of various strands of rope and inscribed with the names of donors. foam-coat.

BC Government’s Budget 2013 Lacks Credibility! “As the MLA for Fraser-Nicola and Critic for Community and Rural Development, I stood up in the BC Legislature on your behalf and spoke against the Government’s 2013 Budget. It is incredible that following the 2009 Budget and HST controversies the government would, once again, go down the very same path that British Columbians so overwhelmingly rejected during the HST Petition Drive in 2010. In my experiences in life, people do not like to be fooled again, and again.” – Harry Lali

Black Comedy opens April 19 Brindsley Miller is about to make it big. The world’s richest man is interested in buying some of Brindsley’s art and his girlfriend Carol has just agreed to marry him! If he can impress the art collector and his future father in law he will have it made. To seal the deal Brindsley has a plan, he’ll “borrow” some fancy furniture from his traveling neighbor and invite both gentlemen over for drinks. What could possibly go wrong? Black Comedy is a British farce that takes a silly look at what can go wrong when you need everything to go right. It takes its title from a key situation in the play where the power goes out. The play starts in complete darkness with the characters acting as if they can see. When the power goes out, the stage lights come on and the audience can see what happens “in the dark”. What happens of course is a complete crumbling of Brindsley’s hopes and dreams as his neighbor returns, his mistress shows up, and the millionaire is unpardonably late. Black Comedy runs through arts week at the Riverside Center. Friday April 19 at 7 p.m. Sunday “Pay-What-You-Can” matinee April 21 at 2 p.m. Sunday April 21 at 7 p.m. Friday April 26 at 7 p.m. Saturday April 28 matinee at 2 p.m. Saturday April 28 7 p.m. Adults $15, Seniors and Children $12 Tickets available in advance at Shopper’s Drug Mart and The Sunflower Art Gallery for $10 Doors open 30 minutes before the curtain

Similkameen Spotlight April 10, 2013

Chicken With Matzo Dumplings Serves 4-6 For the broth 1 leftover chicken carcass, all skin and fat removed 2 Spanish onions, 1 whole and unpeeled, the other peeled and chopped 1 leek, coarsely chopped 3 celery stalks, with leaves if possible, coarsely chopped 4 bay leaves 1 large spring of rosemary 2 large sprigs of thyme 1 large sprig of sage 4 large sprigs of parsley 12 white peppercorns

3 eggs 1 tablespoon olive oil 1 tablespoon finely chopped flat-leaf parsley 3 grindings of black pepper 2 pinches of salt First, make the broth. Put the carcass in a large pot and cover with about 21/2 quarts of water. Bring to a boil, cover and simmer for 30 minutes. Add the vegetables, herbs and peppercorns, return to a boil, cover and simmer for 1 hour. Strain, reserving the broth.

Note: You can use good-quality, low-salt kosher chicken stock cubes or bouillon powder, but the recipe above for homemade broth is recommended. For the dumplings: 7 ounces medium matzo meal (about 8 matzo sheets, ground up)

CAPRICORN: Capricorn, if you want to get real results this time, change your approach with a person who has been troublesome in the past. You will get the knack of persuasion. AQUARIUS: Discuss issues from your past that you have yet to resolve, Aquarius. This is the week to “come clean”with a spouse or romantic partner or someone else close to you. PISCES: Pisces, do generous things for others, and not only will you feel great, but also you will get an unexpected reward. ARIES: Aries, you must stand up for what you believe is right, even if it costs you a few friends along the way. It is the price to pay for doing the honorable thing. TAURUS: Taurus, take a trip this week if it will help you reach your goals. The change of scenery could give you an entirely new perspective on a situation that needs tackling. GEMINI: Gemini, think about adding some new skills to your resume. It’s not that your job is in turmoil right now, but it always pays to be a step ahead when it comes to your career. CANCER: Cancer, just because everyone else is making changes doesn’t mean you have to at this time as well. If things are working out, then let them stay as they are for a while. LEO: Don’t set limits on what you do, Leo. Changes at work mean you may need to fill different roles that require new skills. There’s a good chance you can master them. VIRGO: Networking comes in all shapes and sizes, Virgo. Attend a fun function to put yourself in touch with new people and lead to encounters that can help your future. LIBRA: Libra, don’t feel guilty if your opinion differs from others’. If you don’t agree with the consensus, then that is your opinion and your right. SCORPIO: Scorpio, say what is on your mind because sometimes people just need to hear the honest truth. You have a good way of exacting authority and representing others. SAGITTARIUS: Sagittarius, get together with people who share your love of adventure this week. Together you can enjoy time spent living vicariously and enjoying the scenery flying by. FOR ENTERTAINMENT ONLY

Make the dumplings by mixing all the dumpling ingredients together, then knead until you have a smooth dough, adding a little water if necessary. Cover and let rest for at least 3 hours. Using your hands, form the mixture into balls the size of apricots. To put it all together, bring the chicken broth up to simmering point. Drop in the dumplings and continue simmering, covered, for 30 minutes. If you don’t have a chicken carcass, boil a whole chicken for the soup and use the meat in other dishes.

Traditionally, a boiling fowl from a kosher butcher would be used. Health note: This is the famous “Jewish penicillin” beloved of every mother and grandmother. It’s not an old wives’ tale; there’s good scientific evidence that it contains vitamins, minerals and other natural chemicals that are antibacterial and immuneboosting. In addition, nutrients and valuable plant chemicals are extracted from the vegetables and herbs during the cooking process, most of which end up as active ingredients in the finished soup. PC114622
