PGH update: three doctors recruited

The recruitment of the new physicians and development of the Action Framework is a direct result of cooperative work between IH, the Town, RDOS, and the community over the past several months. This update is intended to keep area residents aware of progress being made in efforts to build a sustainable and effective health care model for the community, and return Princeton General Hospital’s Emergency Department (ED) to full 24/7 coverage. Physicians: Through collaborative efforts, three new physicians have been recruited to begin work at the Cascade Medical Clinic in summer and fall 2013. They will join the permanent physician and nurse practitioner in providing primary healthcare services to area residents. It’s anticipated the first new physician will arrive later this month, while the second and third are expected to join the clinic in September and October. The Cascade Clinic will begin booking appointments for each physician shortly before they arrive in the community. These physicians will also be providing regular support to the Emergency Department. As these physicians arrive, Interior Health will be having discussions with them about the ED hours of operation.

Hedley votes in favour of cell service Lisa Carleton lisa@similkameenspotlight.com

Hedley residents showed support for a cell tower to be installed in their community in a big way on Saturday, Aug. 10. One hundred and forty three of 165 residents voted ‘yes’ in a non-binding opinion poll held by the Regional District of Okanagan Similkameen. All residents of Hedley including members of the Upper Similkameen Indian Band who live within the proposed tower’s service area were invited to participate in the poll. The poll was held to “assist involved parties in better understanding the disposition of Hedley residents towards the construction of a monopole cellular tower.”

The Local Experts

Neil MacLeod and the group of residents who worked diligently to get information out to the public in favour of the tower are “feeling splendid,” with the turn out of residents and with the results of the poll. Director of Area G Angelique Wood says she is, “pleased that such a large number of people took the time to vote on an issue that will impact their daily lives,” and she “looks forward to future meetings with Telus over this issue.” She also states that she is, “pleased that the poll resulted in a resounding direction given by the community as there were flaws in the petitions made by citizens which made their credibility questionable.” Director Wood is schedule to discuss the monopole with the director of Implementation and Operations, Jennifer Connor and Doug Anasto on Tuesday, August 13.

SpotlightNEWS Dedication Many smiles were shared during the celebration of Cascade Recreation Area being designated part of EC Manning Park.  Left to right: Peter, Alyson and John Hatfield, Harvie Walker and Bill Johnston of Okanagan Similkameen Parks Society. The Hatfield’s said their late father, Harley Hatfield (1905-2000) would have been thrilled to see his dream come true. Contributed

Cascade Recreation Area dedication On Saturday, July 20, 2013 the Cascade Recreation Area was dedicated into a Class A park. The Cascade Recreation Area consists of over 16,680 hectares of pristine wilderness that includes intact sections of many original heritage trails in the Cascade Mountains. The Okanagan Similkameen Parks Society, the Okanagan Historical Society and numerous individuals have advocated for the dedication for over 30 years. Mary Mitchell of Friends of Manning Park played her guitar and sang O Canada to open the celebration. The Master of ceremonies was Keith Baric, of BC Parks who has been instrumental in planning the dedication. Baric spoke of the original proposal as contained in “A Brief for the Creation of a Wilderness Conservancy,” prepared by the Okanagan Similkameen Parks Society in the late 1970s. The proposal cited that there were five main streams; The Podunk, Skaist, Snass, Upper Sowoqua, and the Upper Tulameen. Five historic trails; Blackeye’s, Dewdney, HBC Brigade Hope and Whatcom. Five major peaks; Outram, Dewdney, Snass, Tulameen, and Skaist. Five points of access from main roads— those emanating from communities such as Hope, Tulameen and Princeton. John Trewitt of BC Parks spoke of the beauty of the area and thanked all the people responsible for its protection and for their commitment over the many years so that future generations will be able to enjoy this special area. Chris Goodfellow of Coalmont spoke of his grandfather’s fascination with the area and especially the historic trails within it. Rev. John Goodfellow and Podunk Davis searched for the missing sections of trail in the

Tulameen River Valley in the 1930s. Many of the people that spoke and shared their stories had been involved in the field work back in the 1970s and 80s and were delighted to have the area designated as a Class A park which now gives it the utmost protection in the province. Randy Manuel, President of the Okanagan Historical Society spoke fondly of his days out searching and working on the trails, he paid tribute to his mentors, many of whom are no longer with us. Ray Travers, formerly with Environment and Land Use in Victoria, spoke of his involvement in the creation of the original Cascade Recreation Area and congratulated the many people who persevered in their efforts to achieve Park A Class status for the area. Denis O’Gorman, former Deputy Minister of Parks, spoke of the dedication of the many volunteers who worked tirelessly to get the government of the day to listen to them. The late Harley Hatfield lead the preservation effort and according to his daughter, Alyson Hatfield Hay, he was known to “bully all his friends into helping out.” Family members attending the celebration also included Hatfield’s sons, Peter and John as well as his niece, Charlotte Warren. Others that had been instrumental in the protection of this important area who have since passed away include Victor Wilson of Naramata, Eric Jacobson, Danny Rice and Pat Wright of Princeton and Bob Harris of Vancouver. The plaque unveiling was held high upon Blackwall Peak overlooking the vast area that now is part of Manning Provincial Park. Adjoining the plaque is an interpretive sign which tells the story of the many years of dedication and hard work it took to ensure this area was protected for future generations to enjoy.

Getting used to high fuel prices Black Press Guest Editorial

If you drop a frog into a pot of boiling water, the frog will—naturally—jump out as fast as it can. But if you put the same frog in a pot of cool water and raise the heat a little at a time, the frog won’t notice that he is slowly being boiled to death. It’s a principle that the oil and gas industry seems to have down pat, at least as far as consumers buying fuel for their cars go. Little by little they raise the pump price; then they just sit back and wait for the grumbling to pass and consumers adjust to the new cost of driving. Every so often, the oil cartels make a mistake and raise the price a little too much. If our grumbling gets too loud, they’ll find an excuse to drop it back down a little, though never quite as low as before. As it seems anything can be used as a reason to justify new a new round of price increases: political, like terrorist attacks on 9/11, to natural causes like hurricane Katrina knocking out oil platforms in the gulf or even just war in the Middle East. It seems a little odd though that whether the cause is natural or man made, the price increase always comes before a long weekend, with a price readjustment on Tuesday. So, what’s the problem? After all, as high as our gas prices seem, we’re still not paying as much as drivers do in Europe, where fuel prices range as high as $2.43 per litre, a far cry from our $1.45 a litre. Shouldn’t we just be glad we’re better off than someone? The problem is the higher the price of fuel rises the more economic dislocation is caused. Especially when B.C.’s punitive carbon gas tax is added on top of the already high prices. Remember the frog in the slowly boiling pot? Right now, in an economy still reeling from the 2008 economic collapse, the last thing needed is an increase in the cost for farmers, manufacturers and other producers in getting their goods to market.

The Town and RDOS held innumerable meetings with IHA (Interior Health Authority), petitions were circulated, signs went up, protests were staged and public meetings were held while IHA simply stated that there was nothing they could do because we did not have the doctors available to provide the service. Throughout all of it the single message I got from constituents was to get full 24/7 ER (Emergency Services) reinstated. At that time the atmosphere with IHA and this community was toxic and progress was nil. It seemed like an exercise in frustration. In one meeting with local businessmen I well remember an individual simply saying we needed a new approach. He pointed out correctly that IHA was mandated by the province to run our hospital, that they had the money and if we were to be successful we had better work together. It now seems obvious, but sometimes the switch from fighting to communicating is a difficult process! However, over time, not only did we start to make progress we found a group of people as keen as we were to do a good job and provide the best services possible to this community. Many in the community saw what was happening and jumped on board. The local group, Support our Health Care (SOHC), held a number of community meetings, one in particular with Dr. Barbary Pesut, a noted independent UBCO health care researcher. Dr. Pesut was asked to conduct a community consultation to, among other things, make sure that we were aware of exactly what it was the community was looking for in sustainable health care. Forty key individuals from public health, our local ambulance service, community services and other community leaders attended the consultation where their views on Princeton health care were collected. A mass of data was assembled from that

consultation and prepared into a report that was presented to the Town, RDOS, IHA and the public. One suggestion put forward by Dr. Pesut was that IHA bring in a consultant to work with us to help incorporate all the ideas that had been brought forward and to use that to build a framework for a sustainable community health care system that would really work for our community. The Town, RDOS, IHA, community representatives, our doctors and other health care professionals have worked with this consultant and over the last few months developed a framework that goes beyond what I ever thought was possible. This framework gives us the four doctors that we need to reinstate 24/7 full service ER, it will provide easier access to care, new equipment, capital building improvements, a high level of community involvement and many other benefits to our health care system. I have spent a great deal of time on this framework and am convinced that it is a sound, comprehensive program, precisely what my constituents asked me to work toward. We expect that the document will be fully reviewed and made publicly available in the next few days not only to our residents but to interested communities throughout the Province. I apologize for the delay and the resulting misinformation being circulated by a few individuals, claiming incorrectly that the Town and RDOS taxation will increase as a result. Hospital operating expenditures are funded entirely through Provincial revenues. Our local municipal taxes will not be increased at all, while our medical services will be greatly improved. I simply ask that you wait a few days until the final document is made available to the public. At that time we invite you to read the document and judge for yourself. I think you will be pleasantly surprised. Brad Hope RDOS Area H

Dear Editor, After a tragic accident claimed the life of Barend VanVeld, my brother-in-law placed a memorial marker in his honour. Barend’s sons came from Ontario to see the memorial and placed flowers and a single cigar (their father’s favourite) with the marker. On August 7, friends, Brend’s brothers, sisters, cousins and daughter all of Ontario, came to lay Barend to his final rest. Upon arrival to the memorial site for a visit, the group found—nothing! The marker, flowers and lone cigar were gone. An all time low, a horrible act. This heartless and distasteful action was perpetrated against a dear man, a friend who was well known to “give you the shirt off his back or give you his last dollar.” Shame, shame, shame on you! Our friend will be forever missed, Melodye Hope, Hugh, family and friends. Princeton

Community service from the U.S. Troop 4028 - Boy Scouts of America were cycling from Summerland to Princeton, with a planned one day stop over at Chain Lake. They were looking for a community project and needed 10 hours each to get a community service badge. While riding past Osprey Lake, they spotted graffiti on the benches. The group tracked Alan Holmgren, president of the Osprey Area Ratepayers Association down and offered to sand out the graffiti and repaint the benches. Holmgren supplied sandpaper, brushes, and paint and Troop 4028 did the rest. They also sanded and touched up the paint on the gazebo and did a garbage cleanup around the lake and Provincial camp site. “This was a great group of eight 11-13 year old boys and their leaders,” said Holmgren. He talked them into enjoying a short swim in Osprey Lake before they continued on their way.

The first 6 weeks have been productive and promising for both new board and coaching staff. The Posse has reduced the price of individual game tickets and season passes. Family game pricing will remain the same. From Aug. 19 to 22, the Posse Minor Hockey Camp will be held. To date, 10 registrations from both local and out of town players have been received. Posse coaching staff are excited to share the ice with young skaters and restart a starved relationship with local youth. The camp is proceeding for bantam and younger age groups, and promises to be a balance of fun and fundamentals. Parents are reminded that forms can be found on Princeton Posse website or drop by the Posse office at the arena. Posse Jr. Prep Camp takes place Aug. 23 to the 25. Registrations are being taken now for all Midget age or older players looking for up tempo ice twice a day ice sessions targeted to both Junior and Midget players. Local players are encouraged to participate. Scrimmages will be evenings and the public is welcome to come watch new and local players as they prepare for upcoming season. Forms can be found on the website or drop by the office and introduce yourself. There is a new sheriff in town is an apt phrase. With a new sheriff comes a new look. Coach Rotheisler has confirmed a few returning players, but expect a new feel both on the ice and in the community with this season’s squad. Players will be visible and active in Princeton again. The Posse Main Camp takes place Aug. 20 to 30. Come on out and get a first glimpse as players compete for spots on this years roster

Billet families needed for Posse Princeton Posse

*card price

at Red vs White games on Aug. 29 and 30 in preparation for their first exhibition game in Summerland on Aug. 31. The new sheriff brings a commitment to the club’s most critical asset – billet homes. The coaching staff brings a handout of expectations for each Posse player on and off the ice, and a record of follow through. Local RCMP member Anthony Pankratz has taken on the role of liaison between players and the community, including billet parents. There are also now three directors tasked with the billet portfolio to ensure smooth sailing. A huge thank you to all past billet homes! Billet families are needed for this season. Training Staff Needed—A huge hole to fill is that of a trainer, or trainers. Requirements are pregame taping, injury assessment and general fitness issues. Anyone with experience and an interest, even if just for home games or some games or even just to seek information about is asked to contact the Posse coaching staff. The Posse would like to welcome Associate Coach Mark McNaughton on board. He was on the bench last season with Coach Rotheisler in Comox Valley. McNaughton will become a recognizable face as he looks to make his home in the community and represent the Posse as liaison with sponsors in the future. His assistance in preparing the new professional approach to the team has been invaluable. Watch for these future game day tent events, including food and entertainment, beverage gardens on weekend games (a revamped lounge area upstairs) intermission entertainment and other ideas that will be focused on creating an enjoyable evening for fans. Volunteers will always be welcome. Again it is not just about the Princeton Posse, it is about the Posse in Princeton!

During 2012, the Princeton Exhibition Association (PXA) and it’s member groups; Rodeo, Racing Days and Agricultural Fair devised a five year plan for maintenance and repairs of the PXA Grounds. This year, many of the project plans have begun or come to completion. The rodeo and racing grounds/arenas have seen many repairs including the barns and stalls. The RDOS gave funding for major upgrades in the grounds lighting. The grandstand upgrades are a continuing project, the concession has been refinished and as of late, the livestock area has been the site of major improvements. Over the last three weeks, the coop area has been stripped and strengthened, doors rebuilt and set off by a fresh coat of paint. To finish the project, a wooden walkway has been installed in order to provide easier access and cleaner front. Work has been ongoing with volunteers and contractors since the spring. For the next two weeks, the grounds will be heavy with activity as the Agricultural Fair Board and volunteers put the final touches into the preparations for the 48th Princeton & District Annual Agricultural Fair featuring Little Britches Rodeo. The fair takes place the weekend of Aug. 24 and 25. Get your entries ready—registration takes place Thursday, Aug. 22 from 4 to 7 p.m. and Friday, Aug. 23 from 2 to 7 p.m.

New performers to entertain at festival this weekend

A host of visitors and residents enjoy the Friday evening Dance at the Princeton Traditional Music Festival in 2012. Rika Ruebsaat Princeton Traditional Music Festival

The Princeton Traditional Music Festival is coming up this weekend and we hope you’ll all be there. As usual the Festival begins on Friday evening with the opening ceremony followed by a country dance on Veterans’ Way beside the Legion. The dance will feature a live band with fiddle, guitar and concertina. Everyone is welcome. There will be a caller to teach the dances so no experience is necessary and people don’t even need to bring a partner. On Saturday and Sunday there will be music from 10 am until 6 pm right in town. We are fortunate this year to have a wealth of new performers coming to the Festival. The one traveling the furthest is Caitlin Marie Bell, a New York Citybased folk singer from Snellville, Georgia, whose music and storytelling are primarily centred around the roots of the American folk tradition. Classically trained and inspired by the blues, Appalachian, country and classical styles on which she was raised, Caitlin writes songs and arrangements that strive to keep the American folk tradition alive. Another new group this year is Hard Row from Armstrong. The duo consists of Kim and Kaila Sinclair, a father and daughter duo who have been performing together for almost twenty years. With their melodic sound, they sing traditional ballads of love, loss and lament. Kaila’s soaring voice and Kim’s unique guitar styling weave around and through the music they love.

Everything Must Go!

With reflection and a sense of humour Hard Row connects their music with the relevance of history and the world today. No information about the Princeton Traditional Music Festival would be complete without mentioning our exciting, faithful and competent Friday evening dance band. The Psycho Acoustic Ceili Band has been organizing the Friday dances for the past five years and thanks to them, young and old, light-footed and clumsy have enjoyed a community dance on Veterans’ Way The Friday evening ceili is a friendly dance that can be enjoyed by all. Dance to toe-tapping traditional Irish music played by Annie Brown on fiddle, John Gothard on concertina and Dave Marshall on guitar. The funloving Keri-Ann Thor will teach the dances, making them accessible to all. These are just a few of the performers appearing at this year’s Festival, and the best thing about it is it’s free The reason the festival is free is because it’s run entirely by volunteers and the performers are donating their talents. To make the festival a success the organizers will need lots of volunteers. If you’d like to get involved, please contact them. Even if you have only a couple of hours available your help would be most welcome. Give them a call and they’ll welcome you aboard. To find out more visit the Festival’s webblog at princetontraditional.org or give Jon and Rika a call at 250-295-6010. See you on the weekend!

Spanish Mackerel Grilled With Citrus Sauce Serves 4 1 cup plain sugar syrup 1/2 cup water 4 kinkan (kumquats) 61/2 tablespoons koikuchi shoyu (soy sauce) 61/2 tablespoons mirin 61/2 tablespoons sake Zest from 1/2 yuzu (Japanese citron), substitute with one lemon, grated 4 filets Spanish mackerel, about 4 ounces each, cut in three-section filet 8 kogomi (fiddleheads), total about 2 ounces, blanched in salted water, then refreshed in cold water (optional)

1. Put 1 cup plain sugar syrup and 1/2 cup water, and the whole kumquats, in a small saucepan, and bring to a gentle boil, then simmer for 5 minutes. 2. Place soy sauce, mirin and sake in a saucepan and heat over medium heat until it comes to a boil. Remove from heat and cool.

CAPRICORN: Surround yourself with close friends, Capricorn. They will serve as your anchor in difficult situations that may come to pass this week. It’s good to have a support system. AQUARIUS: There is more to you than others see, Aquarius. Sometimes you relish in being mysterious, and this is one of those times. Others’interest will be piqued. PISCES: Don’t take any sniffles or sneezes for granted, Pisces. Make sure this week you pay attention to your health to ensure good days ahead. ARIES: Aries, you have a firm grasp on what you need to accomplish in the week ahead. Stay focused on your tasks and that focus will pay off by the end of the week. TAURUS: Taurus, your financial burden is a little easier this week. Perhaps you have caught up on bills or have received a little extra money you didn’t expect. GEMINI: Gemini, whether you are in a relationship or are looking for a new romantic partner, the next few days are the moments for putting on the charm. CANCER: Cancer, many things need to get done this week before you can set work aside and take a much-needed vacation. Once you get through the bulk of things, you can relax. LEO: Save some of your good fortune for others, Leo. When you share the wealth, not only will you feel better about yourself, but also you will certainly have more friends around you. VIRGO: Without you the well-oiled wheels of the work machine just won’t spin correctly, Virgo. That can put a lot of pressure on you in your career, so weigh the options of a day off. LIBRA: Libra, sometimes you have to be the voice of reason, and this won’t always make you popular with others. Though some may not rally around you this week, they’ll relent. SCORPIO: Something that seemed like a good idea at first glance may not seem like the best thing to do right now, Scorpio. Switch gears while you can still take another path. SAGITTARIUS: Sagittarius, although you may rather spend your time doing something else for the next few days, handle your upcoming obligations without complaint. FOR ENTERTAINMENT ONLY

3. Add grated citron zest to the cooled sauce and pour over the fish, then leave to marinate for 3 or 4 hours. 4. Remove the mackerel from the marinade, skewer each slice with 2 metal or bamboo skewers (soaked in water), and grill on a charcoal grill or broil under an oven grill, taking care not to burn the fish.

5. When nicely browned on both sides and thoroughly grilled, arrange each filet on a serving platter and garnish with poached kumquats and blanched fiddleheads. PC128338 CAPTION: Spanish Mackerel Grilled With Citrus Sauce

Spotlight on Smiles

Thumbs Up/Down Thumbs up to Trina Adams and Sandy Yee for completing the hike from Lodestone Lake to Hope (Hudson Bay Brigade Trail) in only five days! Awesome accomplishment ladies, Congratulations!

How heartless can you get!

A hike along Hedley Creek with VFFN Janis Wright Vermilion Forks Field Naturalists

Vermilion Forks Field Naturalists kept cool on the warm morning of August 10 by hiking the scenic and shaded trail along Hedley Creek. Beryl Wallace and Marg Hamblin led this fascinating field trip that allowed us to connect with some of our Hedley club members and view some remnants of the area’s mining history. Several wooden water flumes still exist along the creek, which was a northern route to the KVR at the turn of the 19th century, when mining companies dammed the creek for water supply to their reduction mill. A series of bridges was built at the same time, but a 1972 flood during spring runoff wiped out all the bridges as well as the dam. Consequently, our picturesque route took us only as far as the location of the first bridge, which lies intact on the opposite bank. The trek in this beautiful area merely whetted

our appetites for a later hike in the fall, when it should be possible to ford the creek and explore further up the canyon.

The Hope group descends into the Podunk Creek valley with Palmer’s Pond in view.

Our next field trip will take us to Lightning Lakes on August 24 for hiking and kayaking. It could be a full day. Phone Janis Wright at 295-7560 for more info.

Hiking the Hudson Bay (1849) Brigade Trail Eleven people hiked a portion of the historic Hudson Bay Brigade Trail from Hope to Jacobson Lake last weekend. Hope Mountain Centre organized the hike and supplied the leaders. Participants were from the Lower Mainland and included two retired history teachers that chal-

lenged themselves in getting over the formidable Cascade Mountains with heavy packs on their backs. Two local Princetonites, Trina Adams and Sandy Yee hiked all the way from Lodestone Lake to Hope completing the entire trail in only 5 days. Way to go ladies.

Feel no guilt in laughter, they know how much you care. Feel no sorrow in a smile, that they’re not here to share, You cannot grieve forever, they Would not want you to. They’d hope that you would carry on, the way you always do. So talk about the good times, and the ways you showed you cared. The days you spent together, all the happiness you shared. Let memories surround you, a word someone may say, will suddenly recapture, a time, an hour, a day That brings them back so clearly, as though they were still here. And fills you with all the feelings, that they are always near. For is you keep those moments, you will never be apart. And they will live forever, locked safe within your heart. Love Louie, Mandy, Mike and Families

We seem to see in the soft dim light A face we love the best; Recalling her as the sun’s last rays Go down in the far off west. We miss her more as time goes on, We can never close our hearts; And the lamp of our love still burns. Her heart the truest in all the world, Her love the best to recall; None on earth could take her place, She is still the dearest of all.

BAREND: With sadness in our hearts we announce: A man of Great Honour, Respect and Passion for Life and Family has departed from us too soon. Barend Van Veld of Princeton BC is resting peacefully after an accident took his life on July 27, 2013 at the age of 65 years. Barend is a father of 3 from Ontario, Richard (Shannon), Barend Jr. and Michele (Kelly). Grandfather of 9: Jackson, Maddison, Kyle, Nicholas, Noah, Rachelle, Becky, Odona and James Jr., and Great Grandfather to 1 Laya. There are also many here in Princeton that consider Barend as family; Donna, Terry, Dana Michael, Mathew, Tia, Kaylie, Raven, Nicholas, Eva, Brooklyn and too many friends to list. He was born in Holland to Father Teunis and Mother Geurtje (both deceased). Barend is the oldest of eight children. Siblings were Merunis, Evelyn, Aart, Hanke, Franklin (deceased), John, Timothy. Barend has lived coast to coast in Canada. His whole life consisted of working and being very busy all the time. His passion was being a builder but he could do almost anything that required a tool. Barend’s work was done with pride and skill on every job he did. He was a good father and a great man with a big heart who would help almost anyone at any time. Barend spoke highly of his friends within the community he lived as his friends did of him. He will be missed dearly by all but live in our hearts and memories forever. Barend was buried at the Princeton Cemetery on Aug 7, 2013 for those who wish to visit. We thank you for your prayers, thoughts and kindness for Barend.
