Posse win season-home opener The Princeton Posse dominate first period scoring three goals against the Kelowna Chiefs. Lisa Carleton lisa@similkameenspotlight.com

Support for the Princeton Posse has shown itself incredulously over the past couple of weeks. The community has rallied, answering the call for billet housing for players and volunteers to man the events and games. “I’m just blown away by the support,” said Dean Johnston, president of the Princeton Posse. Johnston and the new board of directors have come forward with fresh ideas and look forward to an exciting future for the team. The team is lead by general manager/head coach Bill Rotheisler. Assisting Rotheisler are assistant coaches, Mark McNaughton and Dave Clare. The season opener as well as home opener started on Friday, Sept. 13 with the tailgate party at the Princeton Arena. The Kettle Valley Switchmen provided the party ambiance with rockin’ blues while the crowd enjoyed the refreshment garden, steak and prawn dinner by Billy’s Family Restaurant and smokies served up by Barbara Bushewsky. With game time on the horizon fans lined up out the door to get their stamp and seats before 7 p.m. Hockey bells to help make some noise were passed out by ladies from Valley First Credit

Fire at Cedars Motel

Just before 6 a.m., on Thursday, Sept. 12 a fire broke out in Unit 4 at the Cedars Motel, located at 139 3rd Street in Princeton, B.C. The fire destroyed Unit 4. Units 3 and 5 contain heavy smoke and water damage. The larger portion of the motel remains unscathed. Alerted by guests and by her daughter, owner Tima Jones called 911 and Princeton Volunteer Fire Brigade responded. “Thank goodness no one got hurt—everyone got out,” said Jones and daughter Marina. Marina Jones added, “the fire department got here very quickly.” The cause of the fire is not known at this time. “It didn’t take long to put it out—about 45 minutes,” said Assistant Fire Chief Robert

Banks. He was happy to report that, “the rooms weren’t occupied and no one was hurt.” He also commented on the fact that it was a well built building. Tima Jones and her late husband purchased the motel 10 years ago and have not been able to find out it’s exact age. So far, the Spotlight has located a photo dating the Cedars Motel back to 1963— it was then known as the Ho Hum Motel. Norma Kraetor has lived in Princeton since 1937, in the area of the motel for 65 years and said she believes it has been there that long. “It’s pretty old,” she said. Both Jones and her daughter are very impressed with the response and action of the Princeton Volunteer Fire Brigade. “They got here fast, got the fire out quickly and even cleaned up the mess after,” said Marina Jones.

A 40-foot decommissioned bus transformed into an interactive public consultation tool with a draft of the 25 year transit plan has been on tour since Sept. 10. The opportunity for residents to get a better view of the Transit Future Plan was given last Wednesday by Steve Harvard, Regional Transit Manager - Southern Interior and transit representatives who were on hand to answer questions. The plan is a partnership between BC Transit, the Regional District of Okanagan Similkameen (RDOS) and member municipalities who are working towards the development of a 25 year future plan to try to meet the growing needs for transit in the South Okanagan-Similkameen. Public consultation is the first part of the plan. With the tour, BC Transit is helping residents to learn more about public transit and are gathering information from residents to learn more about community needs. Together with the communities input and the existing plans, options and ideas for service will be put together.

During the Spring of 2014 BC Transit will go on tour again visiting the communities to show residents the options and to get feedback as well as thoughts on how they should be prioritized. If you were unable to view the Transit Bus while it was here in Princeton, you have until Sept. 29, 2013 to add your comments online at www.bctransit.com/transitfuture

Floods, fires costly for B.C. government Tom Fletcher Black Press

VICTORIA – The B.C. Liberal government’s promised balanced budget is still on track, despite a dip in personal income tax revenues and higher than expected costs for flood and forest fire response, Finance Minister Mike de Jong said this week. Releasing first-quarter financial results for the current fiscal year, de Jong said the finance ministry expects to post a small surplus of $136 million on the province’s operating budget of $44 billion. For the second time since the election, the surplus forecast was reduced. NDP finance critic Mike Farnworth continued to question whether the books will be balanced by next spring. “The government spent millions of dollars in the run-up to the election campaign promoting its jobs plan, promoting its budget, basically saying if they were re-elected, everything would be rainbows and unicorns,” Farnworth said. “The surplus has been reduced twice, and we’re only just in the first quarter.” De Jong said despite the relatively small area burned by forest fires this year compared to last year, costs were $71 mil-

lion more than budgeted because more fires were in populated areas in the south, requiring aerial and rapid response. Forest fire budgeting is always a “crapshoot,” with dry weather, lightning strikes and proximity to settlement impossible to predict with any accuracy, he said. (A Sept. 3 Black Press report incorrectly estimated that forest fire fighting costs would be down this summer,

despite a long period of dry weather.) Emergency flood response costs added another $27 million to the bills for B.C. in the first quarter, after heavy rains swept through southeastern B.C. and into southern Alberta, where downtown Calgary and High River were flooded. De Jong said the government’s hiring freeze and wage freeze for non-union staff continues, along with the “cooperative gains” mandate for union contracts that requires raises to be funded by savings in other areas of the operation. Total government revenue was up $69 million from the government’s postelection budget update in June, helped by higher than expected corporate tax revenues. Property transfer tax revenues were up $25 million, reflecting an uptick in the B.C. housing market. Other tax revenues were up $10 million, after what de Jong said was a smooth transition from the harmonized sales tax to the separate provincial sales tax this spring. Forest revenue was up $62 million from the June forecast, but mineral revenues were down $41 million, mainly due to lower coal prices and reduced shipments.

SpotlightOPINION

Project could provide example Black Press Guest Editorial

Tulameen’s Raise the Roof project could provide the regional district with an example of how future projects of this kind could best be carried out in the region. The community of Tulameen really seems to have gotten their act together over this project - and so far, it appears that minimal government involvement in the construction of a roof over the community’s ice surface has been the most helpful way regional government could involve itself in the project. Residents were responsible for tracking down, applying for and receiving the grant funding as well as for putting together a workable plan of in-kind and volunteer labour that would make the project affordable. The Regional District Okanagan Similkameen provided the necessary government oversight to allow the grant money to flow from one government level to another, then essentially got out of the way to let the volunteers get on with it. The regional district board even unanimously approved the Raise the Roof committee’s Request For Proposal at a recent board meeting. This in spite of  some directors apprehension over its unusual nature in being a mixture of contracted help, volunteer, in-kind and donated labour. More recently, the board also agreed to allow the project to keep interest earned on the grant money that was sitting in regional district accounts since last year. A savvy request on the part of the Raise the Roof Committee that also has prompted the board to look at its policy regarding  interest earnings on grant money. We sincerely hope that Tulameen residents will be skating at their new rink under a new roof this winter. If so, it will provide a shining example of what a small community can achieve when it collectively puts its mind to it. It will also provide a shining example of an effective role the regional district can play in making these projects happen - by knowing when to involve itself, and when to let the citizens of the regional district help themselves.

Shoreline cleanup 2013 at Osprey Terry Tellier Coordinator Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup - Osprey Lake

The “Friends of Osprey Lake” cleanup crew gathered again for the sixth annual shoreline cleanup at Osprey, Link and Chain Lake. This is the 20th year that Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanups have been happening all over Canada and we were proud to be part of the effort. Nineteen volunteers took to the water or shorelines of the three lakes to make it safe for all who inhabit or visit it. Tellier’s Fisherman’s Cove hosted a campfire and potluck supper for those who helped out. Once again there was a lot of discarded material from cigarettes and packaging of smoking material. Also problematic was litter from sports fishing such as Styrofoam bait containers, plastic lids, fishing line, fishing hooks and

bobbers. Beverage bottles, cans, and caps composed some of the recyclable materials as well as a propane bottle and various pieces of metal and broken glass. Unusual items retrieved from Osprey Lake were three full tackle boxes, fillet knives, butcher knife, Tracker location device, keyhole saw, comforter, blue jeans, food and beverage items. We want to extend our thanks to the City of Princeton for waiving the landfill fees. Many thanks also go to Norm Christman for transporting the garbage weighing approximately 500lbs. We also recognize the Osprey Lake Ratepayers Association for hosting the information on their Website. To get involved in a cleanup near you, go to Shoreline Cleanup.ca and become a coordinator or participant. It is up to all of us to make our waterways safe and enjoyable for all.

BC Hydro says it will charge up to an extra $35 per month – $420 per year – on the roughly 60,000 smart meter holdouts for manual meter readings starting in December. Those who don’t want to pay that much have two cheaper options. They can accept a wireless smart meter at no charge. Or they can request a smart meter with the radio transmitter disabled for a one-time $100 charge and additional $20 per month fees starting April 1. Either way, those who opt to stay off Hydro’s smart grid will pay more. BC Hydro has sent letters to households that have refused smart meters outlining the options, along with a form to send back making their choice. Those who make no choice will be assigned the $35-a-month default option. “If you do not confirm your choice, BC Hydro will not exchange the meter at your home, and the monthly cost for keeping an old meter will be added to your BC Hydro bill,” states the letter from Greg Reimer, executive vice-president of transmission and distribution. The proposed charges must still be approved

by the BC Utilities Commission. Hydro officials say the fees offset the expense of adding infrastructure so the grid works as planned and the costs of manually performing services now automated by smart meters. BC Hydro says those who keep old analog meters aren’t guaranteed that will be an option indefinitely. Crews will replace analog meters that break or have expired accuracy seals as long as the existing stock of old meters lasts. If that supply runs out, or for people who move to a new home, the only option will be to accept a smart meter, either operating wirelessly or with the transmitter turned off. Opposition group Citizens for Safe Technology calls the planned fees “extortionary” – noting they add up to as much as $25 million a year – and doubts regulators will be able to justify them. “Why should we pay not to have something harmful put on our homes?” the group said in a message to supporters, recommending they not return the forms. “Hydro believes that this announcement will push more customers to accept what they do not want or need. Many are understandably upset and confused by this latest ultimatum.” More than 1.8 million smart meters have been installed, leaving fewer than four per cent of Hydro customers without one.

On Tuesday, September 10 four of us hiked up to the alpine meadows just below Jim Kelly Peak and Coquihalla Mountain. The weather was perfect and we were all excited as we drove along the Tulameen River and then bounced our way over the deep culvert ditches on the track to the trailhead. The first part of the hike is forested with needlecovered footfalls that are delight to walk on. As we ascended, the blueberry and huckleberry bushes crowded the trail and we almost had to drag Peter Antonick screaming and kicking up the trail to keep him from spending the rest of the day picking. We promised him some picking time on the way down. Higher up the forest thinned out and mountain peaks sprouted up all around us. The alpine meadows in that area are stunningly beautiful with hundredmile views, turquoise lakes, autumntinged low bush blueberry bushes, shining granite hillsides and patches of snow. Above us the sky was vibrant and cloudless and the breeze carried the scent of spruce and heather. We had lunch on the shores of a lake dominated by Jim Kelly Peak and then continued along the ridge to more meadows, lakes

and stunning views. The geography of the region became really apparent from this ridge. To the near west of us lay the jagged peaks and deep valleys of the Cascade Range and beyond that the peaks of the Coast Range poked the horizon. To the east lay the rounder, undulating profile of the OkanaganThompson Plateau. As we circled the ridge back to the downward trail we paused in blueberry meadows and began to pick our way down the mountain. Farther down we added huckleberries to our stash.

With beauty-filled thoughts and tired thighs we hiked to the truck and bounced our way back to the road and home again. Ed Staples will lead the next hike on Sept. 21 along the KVR trail from Coalmont to White Sands beach and back. Meet at Billy’s at 9 a.m. or the intersection of Coalmont Road and the KVR at 9:30 a.m.   Our next meeting will be Oct. 8, 7 p.m., when Dennis St. John will speak on Monarch butterflies.

POSSE - from page 1

King’s University teams to play at PSS On September 27 and 28 the King’s University Basketball Men’s and Women’s Teams are traveling to Princeton to host four basketball games at the Princeton Secondary School Gymnasium. The Men’s team traveled through last fall on their way down to the Lower Mainland and enjoyed their time so much they thought they would explore the opportunity to host the games in Princeton. Columbia Bible College from Abbotsford signed on to play, and the event was all set. There are a number of Princeton connections to the games as the King’s Women’s team includes local PSS basketball star Makenzie Johnston, and the Men’s team is coached by Jesse McLean and Jason Leslie who are both graduates of PSS. Makenzie is going into her fourth year of eligibility and is primed for a big season as she becomes a veteran leader on a young team. Last season, the Women’s team went 21-2 and were nationally ranked all season, spending most of the time at #3 in the nation. The team lost three key members of that team and now look to re-emerge with a lot of new faces, and Johnston will play a big role in leading the team. Johnston will start at the point guard position for King’s and will be expected to cover the opposition’s best guards. Jesse McLean is entering his fourth year with King’s and third year as Head Coach. The team has improved their win totals every season since McLean took over and is primed for a run to the playoffs this year in the ACAC. “I am excited both for our teams to get to play these games, but I am also excited to bring this high level of basketball to Princeton. These are elite athletes performing at an extremely high level and I think that the people who come out to watch will be very impressed with the basketball being played,” said McLean, “On our Men’s team we have many players who play above the rim, five or six of them that could throw down a dunk at any time.” King’s University plays in the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference (ACAC) and is part of the Canadian Colleges Athletic Association (CCAA). King’s plays against 14 other member schools in the ACAC including NAIT, MacEwan, and SAIT. Columbia Bible College is part of the PacWest Conference, playing schools such as Douglas, Capilano and Camosun, and is also a member of the CCAA.  

Union - a much appreciated corporate sponsor of the Posse. Just before the game start, Posse president Dean Johnston stepped out onto the ice to take care of some unfinished business from the prior season. He then presented Kurtis Klinger with the KIJHL Player of the Month Award he won in February. Johnston also extended his appreciation to the people providing billet homes and to all the volunteers and sponsors that have come forward this season. First Posse goal was scored by Jon Thompson, assisted by Eric Schmidt and Devan Suidy. Second goal via Eric Schmidt with assists from Jon Thompson and Devan Suidy. Kelowna Chiefs made their first goal of the evening with Jordan Salahor, assisted by Nick Josephs and Alex Fortin. First period ends with third goal by Posse— Eric Kubis assisted by Kurtis Klinger. Second period sees the Chiefs score unassisted by Nick Gnazdowsky and then an unassisted goal by Posse Josh Mack. Minutes later the Chiefs hike up to a score of three via Jaeger Bowles assisted by Nick Josephs and Jordon Salahor. Not enough to catch the Posse - Final score Princeton Posse 4 / Kelowna Chiefs 3. On Saturday the 14, the Posse hosted the North Okanagan Nights. The game went in to double overtime, with North Okanagan Nights breaking the tie score of 3 - 3. Final Scores of the evening; North Okanagan Nights 4 / Princeton Posse 3.

Vegetable Paella

Paella perfect for last summer soiree When autumn is on the horizon and temperatures are about to take a turn for the colder, many families prefer to enjoy one last fiesta outdoors before calling it quits on the outdoor entertaining season. The following recipe for “Vegetable Paella” from Deb Roussou’s “350 Best Vegan Recipes” (Robert Rose) makes a great dinner on the deck with family and friends.

Serves 6 to 8

3 tablespoons olive oil 1 onion, diced 1 large fennel bulb, trimmed and cut into bite-size pieces 4 cloves garlic, chopped 2 cups short- or medium-grain white rice 2 cups warm water 11/2 cups dry white wine 1/2 teaspoon paprika 3/4 teaspoon saffron threads or ground turmeric 1 teaspoon salt 1 14-ounce can artichoke hearts in water, drained 3/4 cup sliced drained oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes 8 ounces thin asparagus or green beans, trimmed and halved 1/3 cup green olives 3 tablespoons chopped Italian flat-leaf parsley

1. Place paella pan over medium heat and let pan get

CAPRICORN: Keep your feet on the ground this week, Capricorn. Even if you prefer to have your head in the clouds, keeping your cool will pay dividends in the long run. AQUARIUS: Aquarius, enjoy some quiet time so you can regroup after a hectic couple of weeks. You earned some rest and relaxation, and this time away will recharge your batteries. PISCES: Pisces, you have a lot of good ideas, and it’s time to share those ideas at the office. Your star will soon start to rise. ARIES: Aries, the week ahead is looking pretty good, as you will find people are more sensitive to your needs. Work with those willing to work with you. TAURUS: Taurus, your visions of how things should be might differ from how things really are. Work toward improving those things that need some work, and things will turn out just fine. GEMINI: Some surprises come your way this week, Gemini. But things will soon begin to fall into place. Just be patient before you make important decisions. CANCER: Things may seem a bit strained this week, Cancer. But all it takes is a little cooperation and an increased focus on teamwork, and things will quickly return to normal. LEO: Leo, stay prepared and well organized and this week should fly by without a hitch. Feel free to try some things that go against the grain. VIRGO: Virgo, don’t feel badly about the things over which you have little control. Go out and have a good time this week, and eventually things will run their course. LIBRA: Libra, it may prove challenging to sit still the next few days. People may be pulling at you from many different directions, and you will not know which way to lean. SCORPIO: Scorpio, try not to be overly protective of your secrets this week. A friend or family member is offering their help and guidance, and such insight will prove invaluable. SAGITTARIUS: Sagittarius, a seemingly insurmountable obstacle presents itself this week. Some creativity and quick thinking will be necessary, but you will enjoy the challenge. FOR ENTERTAINMENT ONLY

hot. Add oil and tip pan to coat. Add onion and fennel and cook, stirring frequently, until vegetables begin to soften, 4 to 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook, stirring frequently, until onions and fennel are lightly browned, 3 to 5 minutes. Mix in rice, lightly coating all grains with oil. Stir in water, paprika, wine, salt, saffron, artichoke hearts and sun-dried tomatoes. Gently shake pan to distribute rice evenly. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes. 2. Remove pan from heat and scatter asparagus and green olives over rice. Cover pan and bake in

preheated oven until rice is tender with a slightly crusted bottom, about 30 minutes. 3. Scatter chopped parsley over top and serve hot. Chef’s tip: When garlic is browned too quickly, it will become bitter. If sauteing with other vegetables, add garlic toward the end of the browning process. To ensure time with your guests, make the paella up to 1 day in advance. Refrigerate cooled paella in an airtight container for up to 2 days. Spread in paella pan, cover and reheat in a 350 F oven for 25 to 30 minutes.
