Students answer Earth Day challenge

Similkameen Elementary Secondary students from grades 5 to 12 participated in a clean up of Keremeos business section on Friday, April 19. Earth Day is generally observed on April 22 since its inception 43 years ago. There are reports that the annual day to to demonstrate support for environmental protection is being observed with less enthusiasm these days, even though environmental issues continue uabated. A possible reason, according to one opinion piece, is because environmental issues are less immediate in consequence than in the past - and a lot of us aren’t good at preparing for the future. More than 140 countries observe the day, worldwide.

Building activity, bylaw enforcement reflect sluggish local economy By Steve Arstad news@keremeosreview.com

Water Reservoir Referendum Voting

Village financial forecasts for building inspection services are taking a hit so far this year, as the slow economy tanks development in the village. In the first quarter of 2013, only three permits totalling $20,400 in value have been registered at the village office, compared with seven permits totalling $83,748 in the first quarter of 2012.

Revenue generated from building permit fees is also down this year from $1,647.48 in 2012 to $558.20 this year. Costs associated with building inspection services remain close to 2012 levels, however, at $5,470 this year compared to $5,269 last year. Since the fall of 2011 building inspectors have been working in the village for two half days per week because of the drop in demand. For the first quarter of 2013, there has been a weekly average of one to two

appointments, one to two inspections, three to five telephone enquiries and one to two walk-ins. Building inspection services in Keremeos are contracted to the village through the regional district. First quarter bylaw enforcement statistics tell a similar tale of a slow economy in the Lower Similkameen. The village received 11 complaints to March 31, 2012; to March 31 of this year, only six complaints have been received.

Reservoir vote takes place Saturday, April 27 All eligible residents are urged to get the facts and take a few minutes on Saturday, April 27 to vote on the Keremeos reservoir issue By Kevin Huey Keremeos Irrigation District I’d like to further clarify and correct some misinformation in the community. The 13 wells we draw the water from have always been owned by the Keremeos Irrigation District, since they were installed in 1968, not by the Regional District of Okanagan Similkameen. The irrigation district and the regional district have always been total separate entities. The regional district has however supported the reservoir project by approving a grant to the village of $300,000 to assist in the cost of the reservoir construction.

The irrigation district, due to a provincial government policy, cannot receive grant funding. For the community to take advantage of this grant to the village, the village must also do the borrowing of the additional funds required to construct the reservoir. The new reservoir is required to enable the irrigation district to continue to supply water to all the residents at all times including fire protection for today and into the future. Backup power (generators) of any type does nothing to address the current water demands of the district. Every community has reservoir storage. This is an integral function of a water system and is not a foreign concept. As the referendum date approaches it is important that the residents become properly informed. The information that has been provided from the irrigation district and the village is factual and correct. However, most of the other information that is being circulated in the village is not accurate. The referendum is April 27, at the village office. Please take the time to cast your ballot.

Contract awarded for Okanagan Falls - Kaleden trail improvements By Steve Arstad The Review The regional district board of directors awarded a contract for trail resurfacing on the Kettle Valley Railway trail between Okanagan Falls and Kaleden at the regular board meeting on April 18. Resurfacing, using an aggregate material similar to that used in the Penticton to Naramata section of the KVR trail will be done by Grizzly Excavating Ltd. The board reviewed two submissions to the regional district’s request for proposal, with Grizzly Excavating’s proposed completion date slated for May 21. A total of $250,000 in Gas Tax funding has been allocated in the regional district’s Area “D” budget for the Contractor Evaluation Grizzly Excavating 335 MacKinley - 334.6 Clark Paving Ltd.

Resurfacing $123,002 $150,000

improvements. The resurfacing represents the first of a three phase program to resurface the trail. Phase two will resurface the trail from Pioneer Park to Banbury Green Campground, and Phase three will resurface the trail from Banbury to Penticton. Ownership of the KVR right of way between Banbury Green Campground and Penticton is an issue that remains unclear. Canadian Pacific Railway and the Department of Indian Affairs have never completed an agreement between the two parties to turn over the right of way to the Penticton Indian Band. The regional district would like to see the right of way officially become a portion of the trail corridor, connecting Penticton to points south.

Editorial Why look beyond the region for expertise? On April 18, the regional district board agreed to seek taxpayer approval for a 1.6 million dollar upgrade to the regional district’s 911 emergency system upgrade. Apparently several board members are also dissatisfied with the consultant’s report that put two recommendations for infrastructure upgrades - at 1.6 million dollars and 2.1 million dollars respectively before the board last December. To satisfy the dissent, the board also agreed to hire a “third party expert to review the consultant’s report and go over it with directors.” Chief Administrative Officer Bill Newell suggested that the expert will likely be a “fire chief from outside the district who has knowledge of communications.” Is it possible that the regional district could be making yet another mistake in their search for 911 upgrade options by once again looking outside the region for “experts”? Why does the regional district think it needs to go outside the district to get its answers? Surely a committee of interested regional and municipal chiefs could provide better advice, more suited to the unique radio and internet needs of the regional district’s various fire departments. A problem that has been exacerbating this issue for several months has been a perceived lack of consultation on the part of the regional district to its member fire departments. It’s difficult to understand how a fire chief outside the region would be better able to review local options than would a consortium of long time, local fire chiefs. Perhaps it’s time for the board to look a little closer to the expertise in their own backyard and bring the region’s departments more fully into the decision making process. We are talking about a large sum of taxpayer’s money here - the assistance the board needs to make an informed decision might have been right in front of them all along. The board needs to take the high road and investigate the possibility.

B.C. Liberals are running scared By Tom Fletcher Black Press The B.C. Liberal Party deserves credit for releasing its policy book in full on the eve of the formal election campaign. That’s about the only positive thing to be said about it. For those who take the time to read party leader Christy Clark’s 40page booklet, there are a few nuggets of news. For instance, a re-elected B.C. Liberal government would continue its justice reform agenda by moving traffic ticket disputes out of courtrooms, as they did with impaired driving cases. Most of it consists of glowing descriptions of the government’s 12-year record, and attacks on the NDP of the kind that are not normally seen in a platform. This is consistent with Clark’s style since she was anointed party leader two years ago. The main focus, as revealed in February’s

throne speech, is a plan to pay off B.C.’s growing debt and perhaps even get rid of the provincial sales tax with an Alberta-style “prosperity fund” from liquefied natural gas exports. Whether this is from imposing a new export tax on LNG or simply from a windfall of gas royalties is not clear. Clark and her energy minister contradicted each other on that when it was announced, and the platform doesn’t shed any new light. All we have is a big logo on the side of Clark’s campagn bus declaring “DEBT FREE B.C.” As I’ve written before, there is plenty of real evidence of a huge new LNG industry in the making. As for paying off the $60 billion debt that the B.C. Liberals’ pre-election budget predicts will keep growing, cartoonist Adrian Raeside summed it up best: LNG revenues are “Christy Clark’s invisible friend.” Clark finished up last week with stops in Terrace

and Prince Rupert, promising an LNG windfall for local governments as well. She repeated the platform’s attack line that the NDP are going to wreck the trillion-dollar LNG boom with a Quebec-style moratorium on “fracking” to extract gas from deep shale formations. That’s not an outright lie, but it’s almost as speculative as Clark’s notions of a 30-year windfall that could at best barely start during the next four-year term. The NDP are not calling for a moratorium on natural gas production. They’re calling for yet another “review,” one of many vague, wobbly positions that have been adopted by both dominant parties. An earlier premier named Glen Clark became famous for “freezing” things like ferry fares and car insurance rates. Now Christy Clark is “freezing” personal income tax rates for five years, and carbon tax rates too. That implies

she’s planning to win this election and the next one, at a time when it is unclear whether she can even hold her own seat in Vancouver-Point Grey. The B.C. Liberals will cut small business taxes by a point, some time in the next five years. They will also increase income tax on large businesses and personal income of more than $150,000, but that’s not mentioned in their platform, since it goes against 12 years of their policy as a government. • A clarification of last week’s column on the B.C. Conservative platform. Leader John Cummins informs me his plan to phase out the carbon tax does not include reversing the personal and business income tax rate reductions that were legislated as the fuel tax reached its current level. The platform asserts that total provincial revenues will continue to rise in the next four years, despite the uncompensated loss of $1 billion from the carbon tax.

SIMILKAMEEN ELEMENTARY SECONDARY SCHOOL

Regional district briefs Regional heritage program Regional District Okanagan Similkameen Community Services Manager Mark Woods told the board that the RDOS was embarking on a regional heritage strategy. A consultant will be working with various existing heritage organizations within the regional district over the next year to recognize heritage sites in the region (such as the site of the former gold rush town of Granite Creek in the Tulameen), with the ultimate goal of affording them further protection. Sewer plant accessneeds improvement Okanagan Falls Director Tom Siddon was informed by Public Works Manager Doug French that there were no current plans to pave the access road to the new sewer plant in OK Falls, only to bring it up to “Subdividion standards” by applying granular material to the surface. An apron at the highway would be paved roughly 20 or 30 metres into the access road. Siddon expressed concerns about an adjacent landowner whose driveway paving had been removed

during the course of the project, and would now be subject to dust concerns. Directors pay discussed Regional District Okanagan Similkameen board directors briefly discussed changes to their remuneration at the April 18 board meeting. Minor wording changes were made to the bylaw that provides for remuneration and expenses to elected officials of the regional district. A provision within the bylaw allows for an annual increase in remuneration by the change in the Consumer Price Index for the Province of British Columbia. Remuneration is also reviewed every five years to ensure the amounts paid are

reasonable in comparison with other regional districts of similar size. Municipal directors last year received $317 per month in remuneration, along with a $158 per month expense allowance, while rural directors received $1,095 per month in remuneration and $548 per month in expenses. The directors also received an additional $213 for attendance at regular board meetings, and up to $284 per day more for attendance at committee meetings taking place the same day as regular board meetings. Other directors’ expense rates include 48 cents per kilometre travel allowance and a daily meal allowance ranging from $66 to $101 per day.

Get the facts prior to reservoir decision To the Editor: Water Reservoir Referendum. There are several points of concern that have not been properly addressed concerning the proposed reservoir. 1) The $300,000 that the village has obtained to assist in building this reservoir will not remain if it is not built. Other communities in the regional district will be very pleased to have our grant money. The $300,000 is approximately 25 per cent of the total cost. 2) Being mayor for nine years and also involved in working for health services in Keremeos for over 15 years, I have some basic knowledge on how government functions. If we turn down this water reservoir I firmly believe the province will move us towards the bottom of the grants lists. They prefer to work with communities that want to move forward and advance their infrastructure programs. We need grants to improve our infrastructure. 3) The TRUE Consulting Engineering group, in their water governance study in the spring of 2005, did a thorough analysis of the future water needs of the Village and Keremeos Irrigation District This firm has been involved with water systems upgrades in Osoyoos and Oliver and

APRIL savings! ITEM OF THE MONTH:

know agriculture and residential water systems very well. We need to place more acceptance on the professional people involved in the industry. 4) The irrigation district and the village have had a four phase report done between 2002 and 2009 on hydro geological assessments, water flows, water inventories, and a ground water protection plan. This again is used to intelligently access our future water needs and the safety of water. The K.I.D. and the village have spent years attempting to move the best plan for our citizens, forward. 5) Having worked with Interior Health since its inception in 2002, on health issues in the South Similkameen and the Regional Hospital District, I see a greater likelihood of us having to chlorinate our water if we do not move forward on this upgrade. I urge all our citizens to get accurate information on the reservoir referendum and consider a much larger perspective of potable and irrigation water systems into the future. Please review your facts, and then you must get out and vote. This is how our community will move forward. Thank you very much, Walter Despot, Keremeos

Questions answered but still wondering about the reservoir

To the Editor: Cost of reservoir 1.3 million, or more, depending on, cost overruns, unforeseen circumstances, acts of God, etc. Extra costs to village taxpayers. (Yes) The referendum will cost the village taxpayers $5,000, or more, to administer. Extra cost to the village taxpayer. (Yes) Residents who have lived in the village for 30 days, who are not property owners in the village, are allowed to vote on borrowing money over 30 years. The resident with no property in the village can leave tomorrow, and have nothing to lose. Property owners in the village can’t just up and leave that easily, and would still be left paying down a 30 year, 1.3 million dollar debt. Maybe by letting non - property owning residents have a vote, the village council and the Keremeos Irrigation District, see a reservoir in the future. Extra cost to the village property owners. (Yes) I asked this question, but couldn’t get an answer. If Interior Health mandates chlorination to the village/ K.I.D. water system ,how much more is it going to cost,both financially and health wise. Extra costs to K.I.D. ratepayers. (Yes) A final question that I asked and received an answer to, from the village chief administrative officer, is how are we (the village property owners and residents)going to

Engineered Aluminum Rail 13 standard colours Topless glass rail 65 mil Roofdeck vinyl

re-pay the $955,582.50 over 30 years, if, there is suppose to be, no increase in my taxes or water rates? Apparently V ALLEY D ECK AND there is money set aside for the repayment of the debt by the K.I.D. That’s a interesting statement, because if this is the case, why are we borrowing money if we already have the money set aside for a reservoir. Unlike the reservoir project, I hope I will receive good, common sense answers to the other taxpayer funded projects that are on the horizon. A new fire hall, a new fire truck, a new wastewater treatment plant, expansion of the wastewater system, etc. because like the Village of Keremeos Mayor Bauer said, “you must make an informed decision.” th That’s tough to do, when the information keeps changing to Kaleden Fire Hall achieve the overall objective, by those in control.

Fortis explains reasoning behind conservation rate To the Editor: There has been much discussion in the media surrounding the cost of electricity in recent months, and for good reason since it’s something we all rely on every day and have come to expect to be safe and reliable. In particular, the residential conservation rate that was implemented in July 2012 has caused many of our customers to speak out. Most of our customers will benefit from this rate, but we are sensitive to the fact that some customers will pay more. The BC Utilities Commission mandated that FortisBC implement the residential conservation rate after looking at variety of different rates and considering the bill impact on customers, including high-use customers, electric heat customers, low income customers and customers in different locations. The BCUC approved a residential conservation rate that would result in 75 per cent of customers seeing lower annual bills and only five per cent of customers seeing an annual increase of more than 10 per cent due to the

PATIO COVER SAMPLE SIZES: 20 x10 $2100 16 x 8 $1550 30 x 12 $2950

new rate. While we know some customers are seeing increases, particularly in the winter, approximately 75 per cent of customers will have lower bills averaged throughout the year. To look at it another way, if we went back to billing using a flat rate, a majority of customers would have higher annual bills for electricity. As part of the decision from the BCUC, FortisBC is required to provide a summary on the effectiveness of the residential conservation rate and whether it is increasing conservation amongst our customers. This review is currently underway and will include consideration of feedback from customers. FortisBC understands that any increase can be a hardship for some customers and encourages those customers to get in touch with us directly to see if we can help. Please call us at 1-866-436-7847 or visit our website at fortisbc.com/rcr to learn more about the residential conservation rate.

On Tuesday, April 16, at approximately 6:30 p.m., a van, travelling westbound on Highway 3 veered left then went down the embankment near the intersection of Highway 3 and 3A. The lone occupant, a male driver, claimed he became distracted after dropping a lit cigarette on him and lost control of the vehicle. The driver was charged with several motor vehicle act offences as he also had no insurance and no valid drivers licence. No one was injured and the vehicle was eventually towed away. Several residents in condos at the bottom of the embankment were evacuated while the vehicle was extricated. No injuries were reported.

Process set for resident approval on tax expenditure RDOS press release The Regional District of Okanagan-Similkameen has established an approval process to ensure RDOS residents support borrowing funds to upgrade antiquated 911 emergency call system infrastructure. At its April 18 meeting, the regional board voted to approve the Alternative Approval Process to ensure voter support for $1.64 million worth of upgrades to the region’s 911 emergency call system. “Before the Regional District can adopt a loan authorization bylaw to borrow the $1.64 million required to complete the upgrade, it must receive the approval of the Province and its electors,” explained Christy Malden, Deputy Corporate Officer.

Life insurance – one size shouldn’t fit all From love and affection to financial security, your family depends on you for many things. The love and affection parts are yours alone to give; the financial security part derives from multiple sources, first among them, your income. During your life, your income supports your dependents’ lifestyle. When your income is gone, life insurance helps to fill this financial void. The proceeds are received tax-free by your beneficiary and are readily available when needed, – for example to pay for any taxes arising from your death and to invest to generate income. You do need insurance – the question is what type is best for you and that can be confusing – there are plenty of insurance companies offering a host of life insurance products. Here’s the simple answer: There are actually just two basic types of life insurance, term and permanent. Here’s how they work. Term insurance is well-suited to meeting high, short-term protection needs for the lowest initial cost. The policy is usually renewable after 5, 10 or 20 years without providing proof of health, and many plans offer the option of converting to a permanent product later, also without providing proof of health. However, premiums increase with your age at renewal and can become substantial in later years. Coverage for most term plans ceases entirely at age 75 or 80. Permanent insurance provides lifetime coverage. There are two main types: ◘Participating (par) Whole life is the ‘traditional’ type and usually the most expensive. It provides a guaranteed amount of insurance coverage for life and a guaranteed cash value. Premium costs are level for life or for a pre-set period of time. The policy’s cash value accumulates on a tax-deferred basis and can potentially grow beyond basic guaranteed values through dividends paid to the policyholder. You can recover the full cash value only if you cancel the policy; you can withdraw a portion or all of the cash value and/or dividends; or you can borrow from the cash value and pay interest on the loan. Death benefits are reduced by the amount of loan outstanding on the policy. ◘Universal life combines permanent life insurance and tax-advantaged investment options

MANAGING Your Money in one policy. Fund values also accumulate on a tax-deferred basis and can be used to pay part or all of the cost of your insurance. The fund balance normally increases the death benefit. You select the investment mix according to your comfort with risk and financial goals. Your short- and long-term insurance needs will evolve with your lifestyle and overall financial circumstances. The best way to find the best insurance solutions for you is to speak to your professional advisor or insurance representative.

Estimated hydro bill causes economic woe

To the Editor: After receiving a Fortis electric bill for February, I became that much closer to my grave. The bill for over $700 is about one third of my pension income. Fortis’ $700 Valentine’s Day present has put me between a rock wall and a hard place. Do I pay Fortis and not have enough funds left to pay for proper groceries and my medications, or don’t pay Fortis and they cut off my power, then I have no refrigerator to store some groceries and some medications, no stove to cook on, no hot water and no heat - do you see I’m caught in a catch-22 situation? Fortis $700 bill for February is on top of a $600 bill for December, 2012. I phoned Fortis and was told that the bill

Petition signing against hydro rates

was a “catch up” for power that they had not billed me for. Now, if Fortis read the meter every month there would be no need for any catch up. I received the same info for the February bill. Now I’m wondering, how much of that power used was at the old rate and now billed at the new fancy name of “residential conservation rate.” In my view, there needs to be some serious investigation of Fortis’ management and questions asked. Why can’t Fortis do a hands on meter reading every month and bill every month, so we can see how much power we use every month and the cost? If Fortis sends me another bill like the one I received for February that next “one foot” may put me in the grave. Buzz Henshaw, Olalla

To the Editor: My wife and I attended the meeting/petition signing against the Fortis B.C. rate structuring in Oliver on Sunday. They had a good turn out, even our NDP candidate Sam Hancheroff was there. Linda Larson did not make an appearance, too bad, it would have been nice to get her opinion on this issue. She may have another chance though, as there maybe another petition signing coming to Keremeos soon. Notification on the time and place will either be in this newspaper or by way of a flyer in the mail, stay tuned. Thanks, George Venables, Cawston

The big bombardment

Our Solar System was born about 4 . 5 b i l l i o n ye a r s ago from the collapse of a big cloud of cosmic gas and dust. In the collapse particles collided, forming bigger and bigger lumps, producing the Sun, moons and planets we see in the Solar System today. However, there is still a lot of dust and other lumps orbiting the Sun today. Collisions are still happening, but far less often than they used to. When something hits a planet or moon, it makes a crater, with a size related to how big

the impacting body is and how fast it is moving. What is interesting is that we can count the numbers of craters of var ious siz es and put together the history of the impacting process. Imagine the new, young planet Ping Pong. It is utterly smooth, with no mountains or anything else marring its surface. Something hits it, making a crater. Then there is another impact, and another. Initially most of the planet is unmarked, so the chances are much higher that the next object will not hit an existing crater. However, as the cratering continues, the uncratered fraction of the planet’s surface decreases, so more and more of the new impacts fall on existing ones. Finally, on the average, for every

new crater, an old one is obliterated. The total number of craters then ceases to change much; the planet is saturated. However, it gets interesting if the size range of the bodies ploughing into Ping Pong changes with time. For example, i f ov e r t i m e t h e percentage of collisions with really big bodies declines. Then we will get an increasing population of smaller craters inside older, big craters. If the size range remains the same, we do not see this; so the crater record can tell us the impact history. Unfortunately we cannot do this on the Earth because plate tectonics is continuously recycling the surface. There remain only a few isolated places on Earth where t h e re a re ro c k s dating back to the

Earth’s youth. However the Moon is a different thing entirely. There is no plate tectonics, and most of the surface rocks are ancient. A small telescope will show the Moon’s surface to be covered with craters of all sizes, many ov e r l ap p i n g a n d partially obliterating others. There are huge, darker plains, with fewer craters, and lighter, mountainous regions that are heavily cratered. Moreover, careful examination shows these mountain ranges are the walls of large craters that have been partially destroyed by later impacts. The plains are immense lava flows, the results of collisions with s m a l l a s t e r o i d s, which flooded old c r at e r s a n d p r e sented new, clean surfaces, resetting the crater counter.

These plains were subsequently cratered by later impacts. Thanks to the samples brought back by the Apollo astronauts we have an idea of rock ages, so know how old those plains are. The current inferences are that between 4.1 and 3.8 billion years ago the bombardment was particularly fierce. Then it greatly subsided. It’s interesting that it was after this happened t h at l i f e b e c a m e widespread here on Earth. Jupiter still dominates the western sky during the evening. Saturn rises around 8p.m. The Moon will be full on the 25th. Ken Tapping is an astronomer with the National Research Council’s Dominion Radio Astro-physical Observatory, Penticton.
