Miners Climb opened Steve Kidd Similkameen Spotlight

The ceremonies over, Princeton Mayor Frank Armitage shows off the sign dedicating the new stairs as the Miners Climb.

It’s taken more than two years, but the trail linking Princeton’s downtown with the upper benches is finally open to the public again. The new stairs replacing the zigzag trail were officially opened last Thursday with community officials and supporters taking part in a traditional ribbon-cutting ceremony, with an official new name, the Miner’s Climb. “It left such a void in the community, it’s been a main transportation route for walking, it connects all our three benches with downtown,” said Mayor Frank Armitage. “We knew we wanted to do something. There was no way we weren’t going to have a walkway or stairway.” The new concrete stairs making up the Miner’s Climb stretch up the hillside, with five rest stops along the way to make the climb a little easier, as well as providing viewpoints overlooking the town. The opening of the new stairs is the end of a long process that started in 2010, when a pickup truck parked at the top rolled free and took the old zig zag trail out.

“There were some technical challenges but we overcame them and here we are today,” said Armitage. Some of those challenges included tying the stairs into the steep slope and making sure the railings were up to code to avoid potential liabilities for falls. “But here it is today and it’s great,” he said. “The actual construction, it was about a nine month total. The last month and a half was getting over those technical challenges and our contractor and our architect were having differences of opinion.” Armitage said the building of the Miners’ Climb wouldn’t have happened without a grant from the province that covered almost 80 per cent of the costs. “We just didn’t have the funding,” said Armitage. “The whole thing was $225, 000. It went out to tender and the provincial government paid $180,000 of that.” There are other ways to walk from the bench to the downtown, but the people wanted the trail access back, according to the mayor. “People were so used to this,” he said. “At the back end of the second bench is a wooden stairway to get up to the third bench, so now we are connected to all levels of community.”

PXA receives grant to upgrade exhibition grounds Lisa Carleton lisa@similkameenspotlight.com

Last fall the Princeton Exhibition Association (PXA) with the guidance of town liaison Councillor Jason Earle, created and presented a five-year plan for the Princeton Exhibition Grounds to the Council of the Town of Princeton. The Princeton Exhibition Grounds are a town-owned facility leased to the PXA. The plan consists of regular maintenance duties as well as dedicated improvement plans over the next five years. Over the past year, the grounds have received many improvements. With thanks to the efforts of Area H director Brad Hope, the PXA received grant funding to improve the lighting on

the grounds, making it more energy efficient and lighter on the PXA pocket book. Hayes Creek Electric performed the replacements and upgrades. Grandstand work is underway via Mike Grgich Contracting and the board is hopeful it will be completed soon. Jody Woodford has done barn repair, All Purpose Roofing has replaced two roofs and members of Princeton Rodeo, Princeton Racing Days and the Agricultural Fair boards have spent numerous hours on smaller projects throughout the grounds. Special mention must be made of the Bernard and Crucil families as well as of Walt Halipchuck, Paul Bedard and Danny Kastor—these folks have truly dedicated themselves to the improvements of the

grounds over the past year. Most recently, two new young and fresh faces have joined the PXA. Chloe Littlejohn and her friend Melissa Birchard share common interests and when they met, became “instant besties,” they said. The two young ladies are horse people, they ride and compete in various events like team roping, cutting and team penning. Littlejohn also served as Princeton’s Rodeo Queen in 2006/07. Both use the PXA grounds for riding and boarding their beloved horses. PXA president, Paul Bedard hired Littlejohn, who included her bestie in the package to work on the grounds performing basic clean-up duties. The girls got

into doing much more. They are currently putting a face-lift on the American Barns, scraping, cleaning and painting. “We want to see it used and enjoyed more,” said Littlejohn. “Its a nice facility.” The pair is excited and working hard, planning to continue with indoor projects throughout the winter. They would like to see Princeton host more events: like cutting, bull-o-rama, horse shows and gymkhana just to name a few. When extended the invitation to join the PXA, the girls were, “totally in.” “Someone needs to represent the younger generation,” said Littlejohn. “Getting involved also means meeting more good people,” said Birchard, “and there are some really good people here too.”

Learn to be bear aware by Zoe Kirk RDOS WildSafeBC Community Coordinator

Bear Aware is now included under the WildSafeBC Program umbrella covering a wider range of species: cougar, coyote and urban deer. We have observed some startling correlations between human generated attractants (traditionally associated with bears) and conflicts with other species along wildlife corridors and interface areas. Unsecured garbage is the prime reason every year that B.C. Conservation Officers have to destroy bears. But garbage is also a growing attractant to deer. Deer have been observed tearing into garbage bags to feed on vegetable matter thrown out by residents. Any torn open or overturned garbage can lead to crows, dogs and rodents accessing readily available, un-natural food sources. When the dogs and rodents move in, it’s not a stretch to see coyotes come by to take advantage of the garbage and distracted pets or rodents. Unsecured garbage can attract bears, deer, coyotes, racoons, dogs, rats and mice. Birdfeeders have long been known to provide a hungry bear with a quick, calorie

rich snack. But, deer have figured out how to eat from feeders and they spill the seed, and the story begins again. Seed on the ground attracts the ground birds and rodents, these attract our domestic cats, and this activity can attract roaming coyotes and cougars. Birdfeeders out of season can attract bears, deer, coyotes, racoons, cats, rats and mice. Pet food on the porch is an ideal snack for more than just rover!

decks and porches to eat it. Pet food dishes on the porch or patio can attract bears, coyotes, cougars, racoons, rodents and the neighbour’s pets. To date I have not heard of a deer browsing on pet food, but who knows how long it will be before they will decide to try it? Deer have been known to eat dead birds and mice. Composts and composters that are not ‘working correctly’ are always a good place for a bear to look for snacks. Fruit and vegetables that are rotting instead of composting are delectable morsels for bears and all manner of rodents, from racoons to rats and mice. And, when we have rodents, we have domestic cats. Cougars and coyotes following their hunting instincts follow suit to grab an easy meal. Poorly work-

ing compost attracts bears, coyotes, cougars, rodents, and neighbourhood cats. Residential fruit trees attract all the predators and rodents. The theme is the same, the tree is the bait. If poorly managed, all the refuse and byproducts of human habitation attract local and domestic wildlife. If we humans take the few minutes to ‘think like a bear’ and manage our attractants accordingly, we would immediately see a difference on our roads and in our residential neighbourhoods. Feeding birds in winter is the best option. Pick fruit as soon as ripe and remove fallen fruit. Keep pet food dishes inside and pets in at night. Learn to compost correctly. Garbage kept in a can not bags, and placed to the curb on the morning of pick up (this includes recycling) would be a huge step in the right direction. Imagine, these steps would lead to less conflict with wildlife, reduced rat populations, fewer neighbours hating each other’s pets, and cleaner streets and roadways. One last note: at this time of year more wildlife is going to be alongside and crossing our roads and highways. Please be extra cautious on rural roads to avoid hitting, injuring or killing wildlife. Also, it saves on car insurance claims, and the risk of human injury or death.

Mother and Son, Sharon and Matthew Sawin were recognized last week for taking lifesaving action when a customer collapsed in June at the family business, Princeton Tire.

Family business saves life Steve Kidd Similkameen Spotlight

Back in June, Matthew Sawin and his mother Sharon got to add a new qualification to their list of skills: life savers. Last week, the two long-time residents received BC Ambulance Service (BCAS) Vital Link Awards at a ceremony hosted by local paramedics to recognize the duo’s lifesaving actions during a recent sudden cardiac arrest. On June 27, 2013, Matthew was changing tires at the family’s business, Princeton Tire, when his customer, Jack Storey suffered a sudden cardiac arrest. “He was standing right beside me and I was putting his tire on. I thought he tripped. But he just went down,” said Matthew, who immediatly ran inside to tell Sharon to call for help. “I had to grab that phone and go out in the shop because they were outside. They told me what to do and I told Matthew what to do,” said Sharon. Neither of the Sawins had any experience giving CPR, BCAS emer-

We were just super glad we could help him, it was a very scary time for both of us — Sharon Sawin

gency medical calltaker Steve Matheson provided detailed instructions over the phone and Matthew began compressions. Looking back on the incident, the Sawins describe it as nerve-wracking, though they were glad they were in the right place to help. “We were just super glad we could help him, it was very scary at the time for both of us, because neither of us had handled anything like that,” said Sharon. “But Matthew was fabulous, I’ve got to give him credit. I am really proud of him.” Within five minutes after Matthew started CPR, off duty BCAS paramedic Sandra Lewis happened to be driving by and saw Matthew doing CPR. She quickly stopped and took over until paramedics arrived a few minutes later. But the Sawins were the vital first link in a chain of care that has Storey back to health. The BCAS attends up to 2,800 cardiac arrest

calls each year, but fewer than 12 per cent of people who have a cardiac arrest survive. “As a paramedic, it is rare to see such a positive outcome for sudden cardiac arrest patients,” said Lewis. “Matthew and Sharon’s quick actions saved Mr. Storey’s life by providing CPR immediately after his arrest. Bystanders sometimes hesitate because they think they may have to do mouthto-mouth, but calling 9-1-1 and doing chest compressions are all that you need to do. He is alive because of them.” “I have taken CPR and first aid training in my work and volunteering with the Hedley Fire Department. But little did I know it would be me who needed it,” said Jack Storey. “I give my very humble thanks and appreciation to Matthew, Sharon, Sandra and the other paramedics and medical professionals who cared for me.”

Things are business as usual at Princeton Tire; Matthew is quiet about his role in saving Jack’s life, but is considering taking a CPR course. Jack Storey has made a full recovery and has since returned to Princeton Tire for another tire. “Even with the best-trained paramedics and the fastest response times, the simple actions of members of the public in the first moments of a medical emergency can be one of the most critical factors in a patient’s outcome,” said BCAS South Okanagan Superintendent Ian Fitzpatrick. “It’s important to remember that CPR saves lives, and the more we encourage everyone to be trained in CPR, the greater the chances of saving lives.” The Vital Link Award presented to Matthew and Sharon last week at Princeton Tire both recognizes members of the public who save a life and raises awareness of the importance of CPR. A cardiac arrest victim is four times more likely to survive if they receive CPR from a bystander. However, in approximately 85 per cent

of all cardiac arrest cases, this basic procedure is not performed.

Climb more than just a set of stairs Black Press Guest Editorial

There a couple of ways to view the newly-opened Miners Climb linking upper and lower Billiter Avenue. Probably more than two. First, of course, they are stairs. Stairs are useful things, as we all know. In your home or on a hillside, they make it easy to get from the bottom to the top without being a mountain climber, pounding pitons into the wall to secure your ropes. But the stairs of the Miners Climb is symbolic of something more. Building and connecting a community. Princeton has been without one of its most important connections since the zigzag trail was demolished a couple of years ago, after a parked truck slipped into gear and rolled down the steep street above, slipping by the concrete barrier and tearing out the walkway. That it was a popular link was clear from the number of people that continued to use the path, despite its poor condition and fences warning walkers away. Last week, the trail was reopened, with new concrete stairs and metal railings to enhance the path, and five rest stops for those who can’t handle the climb at one go. Creating the Miners Climb was not an easy task. Not only was it a costly venture, but the final design was not without detractors. There were questions raised about whether the stairs were the best solution, rather than following the old zigzag pattern and whether the new climb was now too steep, even with the rest stops. But in the end, the result remains the same. Princeton has a connection that many communities would envy, directly linking the two upper levels of town with downtown, residential with shopping areas. It took help — a lot of tax dollars, that is — from the provincial government for Princeton’s city hall to replace the zigzag trail. But we think it was money well spent to not only renew this important byway connecting the community, but to forge it in a new a better form that will last for many years.

Volunteer co-hosts are invited to join each event.” Anyone interested in learning more about programs can call 250-499-2352. “When people with special skills and abilities appear among participants, they will be asked to

accept our direct assistance in conducting their own sessions,” said Cursons. “We’ll use the Similkameen Family Centre and expand into other space as the need warrants.” Cost to join in will be kept to a minimum. As little as $5 a session or less, with special consideration to anyone with limited means. Similkameen Family Literacy receives some Provincial Gaming Proceeds and benefits from the cooperation of community partners. Presently, volunteer readers with Similkameen Family Literacy provide a One-to-One Reading Program at Cawston Primary School that is managed by Cheri Mitchell of Lower Similkameen Community Services. Similkameen Family Literacy’s goal is to ‘promote the enjoyment and good use of language in read, heard, written and spoken communication for all ages.’ Contact number for Similkameen Family Literacy is 250-499-2352 (Local 107).

Cards stolen

On Sept 19, 2013, a Keremeos resident became aware that unknown culprits had entered his locked shed and stolen a large collection of hockey cards valued at several thousand dollars. The suspect(s) will likely be attempting to sell or trade these cards and police are asking anyone with information to call the Keremeos RCMP at 250-499-5511 or Crimestoppers.

UBCM asks province to ban GE crops and animals In an unprecedented step, the Union of BC Municipalities (UBCM), at their Annual General Meeting in Vancouver last month, passed a resolution “that UBCM ask the British Columbia government to legislate the prohibition of importing, exporting and growing plants and seeds containing genetically engineered DNA, and raising GE animals within BC, and to declare, through legislation, that BC is a GE Free area in respect to all plant and animal species.”   Already 14 municipalities in BC have declared themselves GE Free Zones, and 10

Official Community Plans of Regional Districts have come out against GE crops, as communities across the province mobilized for a ban on GE crops. “We’re overjoyed with our success,” said Teresa Lynne of the Society for a GE Free BC, a volunteer non-profit group, “We’re so grateful to all the councilors who heard our concerns and took this amazing step on our behalf. The provincial government needs to legislate this ban and then ask the federal government to do the same.” “This was possible thanks to the actions of so many passionate and committed people. Every action made a dif-

ference,” said Lynne, “We all want to protect our families, environment and food system from the risks of genetically engineered crops and foods.” “This is an unprecedented victory for grassroots communities,” said Lucy Sharratt of the Canadian Biotechnology Action Network, “Finally we see a level of government in Canada debate this issue and respond to peoples’ concerns.” Supporters of the UBCM motion gathered almost 7000 signatures on online and hardcopy petitions, and protested yesterday morning outside the UBCM meeting location.

The joys of (grand)parenting We are expecting another grandchild in the next month or so and it has set me to thinking about the pleasures of being a grandparent. Don’t despair if you don’t have a grandchild in your life. You can always borrow a youngster for a few hours from a harried mom or dad. We have been blessed with three so far and from my observation, it isn’t likely the parent will refuse. Here are some of the reasons this is such a pleasant thing to do. When they are babies, parents, who are usually your children, are so absolutely grateful for a little respite from the twenty-four hour grind of feeding, changing diapers and trying to figure out why on earth this kid is crying like that.

We can smile graciously and say, “You were like that,” and, “I didn’t sleep for two solid years when you were a baby!” Or, the first time the little one decides to go on a hunger strike and your child, the parent of your grandchild, is convinced the little one will die within hours. You reassure them by telling how they themselves lived on nothing but frozen peas for a whole year. Of course these may be slightly exaggerated accounts but I must confess, I have done this to my own children on occasion in a shameless fit of remembrance of my own fears and anxieties. The upside is you see what wonderful people your own children have become. You see the amazement in their eyes,

the joy they feel. You marvel at their maturity and their ability to feel love that transcends the worries and exhaustion you know they are feeling. You remember how you worried about them, wondering if they would ever be able to get out of bed in time for school, would ever remember to look before crossing the street or learn how to save their allowance. And here they are, beginning the long journey of raising your

grandchild and teaching the same lessons plus a few you never thought of. You are just so proud, and admit it, maybe even a little surprised. Of course, the greatest pleasure of spending time with your grandchild is that they just love you. They come with a completely different set of standards. You are amazing to them. All you have to do is be yourself. As long as you have time to cuddle or read a story, or better, listen to their stories, you are awesome. You can take forever to get ready to go out. One of our granddaughters literally threw her tiny body against the front door, spreadeagled, to prevent the rest of us from leaving the house till Grandpa had his shoes on. She bellowed in her

best two-and-a-half year old drill sergeant voice that we must wait for him. I was thoroughly impressed. They have no prejudice regarding appearance. It may be a matter of curiosity but never of judgement. They are fascinated with such things as glasses, wrinkles, and best of all, removable teeth. Apparently, that is the coolest thing ever and endlessly mystifying. When they grow out of babyhood, they become quite serious and share their observations about life. It’s astounding how sensible their ideas are. The good news is that as we grow old, we have the opportunity to come back to our senses and see the wisdom of unconditional love and of taking the time for others.

Posse strong at home Dean Johnston guest columnist

The Posse close out September with optimism both on and off the ice. Despite huge changes the future indeed looks full of promise. In all the upheaval of rebranding junior hockey in Princeton there is indeed a buzz, a constant hum of excitement in the community and in the stands. The squad is 2-4-1 heading into October and sits one point behind both Osoyoos and Summerland in what everyone agreed before the season would be the KIJHL’s most competitive division. Better yet, the Posse is 2-1-1 at home. Fans have seen an exciting home opener one goal win, a loss in double overtime, a late one goal loss after the squad worked to overcome an early three goal deficit, and most recently a 4-2 victory over rival Osoyoos. Most important for the organization and team management, fan support has been simply fantastic. Long time supporters have been supportive in their praise, returning fans have expressed a

POSSE NETMINDER Spencer Huff deflects the puck high over the net during the Posse’s 4-3 loss at Summerland Steam Friday night. But the boys were back strong on home ice Sunday with a 4-2 win over the Osoyoos Coyotes.

renewed interest and — equally critical for the future of junior hockey in Princeton — new faces have been noted everywhere throughout the arena. This past weekend marked the first Sunday game and it was a huge success as young fans took advantage of opportunity to bring a parent for free. Pashas Pizza provided pizza

by the slice in the mezzanine, the Posse provided a win for entertainment and then the players hung around to participate in the first Skate With The Posse afterwards. The stands were busy during the game and the players were afterwards as almost 50 kids donned skates. The tailgate party schedule has been posted through to November with tail-

gates happening for all Friday and Saturday evening games. The Posse hope to encourage more people to come out and enjoy pregame festivities with an excellent variety of food. Upcoming menu items include beef on a bun, free range chicken dinners, pulled pork as well as a bbq medly of ribs, chicken and steak. The goal is to stay outside as long as weather permits, but if turns nasty, there is tons of room in the mezzanine to enjoy TV sporting events while enjoing dinner. All of these provide funding for the team and serve as a means to work with local businesses. All in all a great start to the season. Thanks to all the kids and parents for this Sunday, and to all fans in general for your support. Again, if you are enjoying it, bring a friend. Upcoming events include an Oct. 4 tailgate party at 5:45 p.m. hosted by Thomasina’s with Hockey Night in Canada on TV. And on Oct. 5, The Posse will be hosts for another tailgate party at 5:45 p.m.

Curling club back in action in October Our great Canadian sport of curling is a wonderful tradition in Princeton. We will start our season Oct. 22. Beginners and new members are very welcome.
