on in Keremeos since moving here four years ago, adding to their sizeable display each year. “When we moved here and started setting up for the first time, the neighbours said, ‘Don’t bother, we only get 10 kids a year,’” Bunny related. “We said, oh, well, and started putting stuff up anyway.” The first year of the display saw 176 kids turn up at the Wells’ door. Each year, the numbers increase. Prepared for upwards of 275 kids this year, a steady procession of trick or treaters gave testament to the growing popularity of the Well’s display on Halloween night. Undead rising from the grave greeted visitors at the entrance to the property, and spiked heads

It was a ghastly evening of ghosts, goblins and ghouls Halloween evening at Bunny and Cathie Wells residence on 10th Avenue in Keremeos. The couple have taken great delight in providing their neighbourhood with creepy stuff for 30 years. They have been setting up an elaborate display of ghastly goings-

lined the walkway. Bunny and Cathie, including a few neighbours and friends, moved about in costume to add more animation to the horrible sights on display, which includes disembodied heads, ghosts, undead rising from coffins, a cemetery, scary pumpkin heads and a huge spider. Eerie music added to the special effects. The scary display takes three days to set up, even with assistance from neighbours Fred and Eve Cole. This year, Wells’ friends from Abbotsford, the Fillions, also came for a visit and to lend a hand. “We’re getting pretty well known in the village as the Halloween House,” chuckled Bunny.

Ryan Campbell of Fix ‘em Auto demonstrates how to measure tread depth using a toonie. Twelve thirty-seconds of rubber, if you’re testing the depth of your new tires, should reach the paws of the polar bear on the toonie. At 4/32s of tread, at which the tire would not be ver y good in winter driving although would still have tread on it, would just partially cover the letters of the word “dollars” on your toonie. Ryan compares a new snow tire’s tread (left) to a worn one at right.

First snow of the season is “sno” time to start thinking of seasonal traction needs ICBC and police urge Southern Interior drivers to adjust their driving in fall and winter weather By Steve Arstad firstname.lastname@example.org Speed-related crashes significantly increase from October to December in B.C. Every year in October, an average of 28 people are injured or killed in crashes in the Southern Interior due to driving too fast for the conditions. That number more than triples to 97 in December as driving conditions worsen. Sergeant Harold Hallett, a member of the South Okanagan Traffic Servicess force in Keremeos, said that tires and speed, relative to conditions, are the two biggest items factoring into winter driving accidents in Keremeos and the Similkameen. “People are usually pretty good, except for the first snowfall of the seaon, when we tend to get multiple accidents,” he explained, “but after that they adjust to the weather conditions.” Hallett said the region’s major problem areas during fall and winter include: - the shaded rock cut areas of Highway 3A at both ends of Yellow Lake. - the rolling hills west of Richter Pass . - Highway 3 from approximately

B.C. apple growers scare away competition By Steve Arstad
BC apples captured nine of the top 40 places in the new variety section at the Halloween edition of the National Apple Competition, held every year at the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair (RAWF) in Toronto, Ontario. “The quality of the apples was excellent from all provinces this year. The growers who entered the competition made the judges job difficult this year, and BC growers held their own in the competition,” said Glen Lucas, General Manager of the BC Fruit Growers’ Association. Cawston grower Greg Sanderson was awarded second place in the Golden Delicious category at the fair. “I’m quite impressed - very impressed,” Greg said this week. “We had a stellar crop this year - great quality and quantity.” Greg hopes the award will help boost B.C. apple sales across the nation, noting he had entered Ambrosia, Sparton, Golden Delicious and Granny Smith apples in the fair.

Calligraphy workshops at Keremeos Family Centre Contributed by Dave Cursons The Art of Calligraphy is being offered in a series of workshops in the run-up to the festive season. “Most folks enjoy hand written and artistically decorated cards. letters and presentation pieces,” says Dave Cursons, who will direct the workshop series. Saturday afternoon workshops run from 1:30 to 3 p.m., November 16, 23 and December 7. There will also be one evening workshop from 6:30 to 9 p.m. on Wednesday December 4. They all happen at The Family Centre at 310 Veterans Ave, in Keremeos. Cursons is the part-time coordinator for Similkameen Family Literacy and has been practising calligraphy as an art since he was a youngster. The beauty of the hand written word is an especially important art as we move into the highly efficient and standardized digital culture. Penmanship is practised less and less. There is real joy and excitement in producing written work in one’s own style using pens, inks, brushes and various papers. Materials are provided in the workshops for a $3 fee. Participants are welcome to bring their own writing tools and other materials. “Getting together as a group is a way to explore and to have fun in refining our own particular approaches to standard and stylized letter forms,” says Cursons. Pre-registration is required at 250-499-2352. Call 8 a.m. to noon Monday to Friday.

Unattended pumpkins are a Halloween treat for bears RDOS press release Bears are currently foraging to add hefty fat reserves prior to denning for the winter. This phenomenon is known as Hyerphagia. This phase starts in late summer to increase the drive for food, to boost the bear’s fat loads; knowing they will lose up to 35 per cent of their body weight during their long winter’s nap. Bears require close to 20,000 calories a day to satisfy Mother Nature’s drive for food during the fall, and will try to get that any way they can. In the fall, bears are known to frequent neighbourhoods close to wildlife corridors, fish bearing creeks and residential areas close to the edges of populated areas. Residents living in those areas are reminded to keep garbage and attractants secure until the day of garbage pickup. That includes pumpkins and jack-o-lanterns after Halloween.
For a bear, a street lined with pumpkins left out on porches, patios and at curbside are unnatural smorgasbords, which may draw them to the area. Once they are rewarded with a good source of easy meals, they are likely to return again and again. Pumpkins left unattended to rot will lure rats, racoons and other rodents to the area. These can be peskier to deal with than the occasional bruin, and can be a factor in coyote and cougar sightings in residential areas as they look for easy rodent meals. For more information on Keeping Wildlife Wild and Communities Safe, visit www.wildsafebc.com or www.rdos.bc.ca and click on WildSafeBC – Bear Aware tab section.

New chief elected to Lower Similkameen Indian Band
Keith Crow is experienced in administrative and council duties
By Steve Arstad news@keremeosreview. com The Lower Similkameen Indian Band elected a new chief on Monday, November 4. Keith Crow was sworn in along with newly elected councillor Eliza Terbasket at a ceremony at the LSIB office held on Tuesday, November 5. The chief’s position and one councillor’s position was up for election this year, with a two way race for chief and three candidates for councillor. Crow defeated incumbent chief Rob Edwards by a margin of 11051, with one vote spoiled. One hundred and sixty-two band members turned out to vote, believed to be one of the strongest turnouts in recent years. Eliza Terbasket was elected with 87 votes, followed by
Frank Qualtier with 40, Theresa Snow (33). Two votes were spoiled and one rejected. Crow takes on the chief’s position with previous experience on the band council. He has been involved in housing with the band and has also served as an accountant. “I’ve got some fine details to work out,” he said, noting that there would be a transition period with former chief Rob Edwards. “Thanks everyone for voting - I think this was one of the best turnouts in a long time,” Crow told a large gathering at Tuesday’s swearing in ceremony. “I hope I know what I’m getting into,” he laughed. “I know it’s going to be a tough four years,” he added, noting that there were a number of changes occurring in band personnel. “I plan to lead with my heart, and to keep my integrity,” he told the gathering.

also thanked band members for their participation in the election, noting that “People care about what’s going on.”
Terbasket said that she was awake all night following the election as she contemplated the job ahead.
“I feel good, and I look forward to the next four years,” she said. “I’m good at giving and receiving feedback.”

Editorial Urban and rural power uses differ Fortis’ Residential Conservation Rate Report was released on November 1. The BC Utilities Commission asked Fortis for an early review of the two tiered residential billing system following public outcry over perceptions of skyrocketing hydro bills amongst low income and electricity dependent customers last winter. Fortis’ report delivered little in the way of new or startling news, basically confirming what the utility predicted would be the result of the two tiered system - that approximately 71 per cent of customers would pay about the same or less under the residential conservation rate as compared to a flat rate, and customers with electric heat and those without access to natural gas were more likely to be negatively impacted. The report also noted that many residents did not understand the effect the residential conservation rate (RCS) had on their bill, mistaking high consumption and annual rate increases for the RCS. As a revenue neutral exercise, it was also pointed out that any change to the existing rate structure to modify the rate for one group of users would result in higher costs for another. Fortis also noted that some users are benefitting from a break in hydro costs without actually having done anything to conserve their energy useage. The report also hints that there may not be much conservation benefit coming from the present rate system. Perhaps Fortis and the BCUC need to look more closely at the differences between urban and rural electrical use. It appears to us most of the issues surrounding the two tiered rate in the Similkameen involve larger or older lower income rural households who have limited choice when it comes to energy alternatives. In our view, a solution to an energy conservation rate needs to answer this issue, if the rate system is to be effective as a conservation method.

Clark, Redford find common pipeline ground By Tom Fletcher Black Press Premier Christy Clark met Alberta Premier Alison Redford in Vancouver Thursday, to work out what they are calling a “framework agreement” for heavy oil pipeline expansion to the West Coast. Alberta agrees to support B.C.’s demand for a revenue share from the oil production and export, as long as it doesn’t come from Alberta’s resource royalties. B.C. agrees to support Alberta’s call for a national energy strategy, Clark and Redford said Tuesday. “Alberta has reached a broader understanding and acceptance of British Columbia’s five conditions, and our province had agreed to join the Cana-
dian Energy Strategy discussions started by Premier Redford,” Clark told reporters at an energy conference in Vancouver. In previous meetings, Redford has been adamant that none of Alberta’s resource royalties from oilsands crude will be shared. B.C. has argued that the oil producers and the federal government have to find a solution to the conditions for approval laid down by Clark. Redford said her proposed national strategy is to address interprovincial projects such as pipelines, recognizing that energy is provincial jurisdiction. “We don’t think this is about quid pro quo or gotcha politics,” Redford said. “This is about putting in place economic models that are going to work for Canada,
for each of our economies, and allow for product to move.” Clark said she is pleased that Redford accepted her conditions, and the assurance she gave at their June meeting in Kelowna that B.C. isn’t after Alberta’s resource royalties. B.C. makes substantial royalties from natural gas and hopes to increase that substantially with exports, Clark said. Redford visited B.C. to give a keynote speech to an energy forum hosted by the Vancouver Board of Trade. The soldout event included a panel discussion with Redford and Kinder Morgan Canada president Ian Anderson, whose company is proposing to expand its Trans Mountain pipeline from Alberta to its Burnaby marine terminal and refineries in Burnaby and

Washington. Anderson was asked by Black Press how his company would respond if B.C. proposes a specific tax or toll on each barrel of oil shipped through the twinned Trans Mountain pipeline. “I think it’s far too early to be talking about those kinds of concepts,” Anderson said. “We’re looking to define and deliver the benefits from our project directly to communities in British Columbia. The extent to which the B.C. government evaluates those, they’ll do so on their own accord and they’ll call me if they need to.” A federal review panel is preparing to make recommendations on Enbridge’s Northern Gateway pipeline proposed to run from Alberta to a new marine terminal at Kitimat.

Former city residents enjoying rural life
To the Editor: When my wife and I moved from Abbotsford to Hedley a year ago, our friends couldn’t comprehend our reasons for turning our backs on the amenities and glitter of city life. Living in a small community with no fitness centre, bank, doctor, pharmacy or supermarket, was to them like leaving the known world. Moving to Hedley has made us aware of another way of living. Instead of depending only on government agencies, people are more likely to help each other. When a cancer patient needed financial assistance
to travel to a specialist in Vancouver, there was a contribution box in the Country Market. There seems to be an understanding that to survive, we need to join hands with individuals in need. On the second Sunday of each month the Senior’s Center invites the community to a breakfast of pancakes, eggs and sausages or bacon. At $5 a plate it’s a delicious bargain and it draws the community together. The Community Club’s annual summer Street Dance, featuring a talented live band and barbeque, provides enjoyable entertain-
ment and great food. In October the Hedley Museum Society sponsors a lavish Thanksgiving dinner. Twice each year, the Hedley Grace Church organizes a bottle drive to send children to camp. People contribute cans and bottles throughout the year. To this time we have not missed the congestion, pollution or noise of the city we lived in for many years. We love the abundant sunshine, enjoy the people and appreciate the clean air in the Similkameen Valley. The amenities of the city cannot compare. Art Martens, Hedley

Accountability and responsiveness from Keremeos mayor and council still needed To the Editor: I first brought forward my view on the need for more accountability and responsiveness to voters/taxpayers in a previous editorial a few weeks ago. To update this request, I still have yet to hear from Mayor Bauer. It appears that Mr. Bauer has no intention of responding to my previous inquiry. More recently, I requested information on which council members attended the recent UBCM convention in Vancouver, the provincial municipalities meeting. I learned Mayor Bauer and Councilman Gary Thielmann attended at a total cost to taxpayers of $5,148.35. I contacted the village office to request a copy of written reports that I expected would be submitted by both to council on their participation at the UBCM- the sessions attended and the implication of these topics for the Village of Keremeos. I was advised by the CAO that no such
written reports are required and that only oral reports are presented. When I further asked to be directed to the minutes of the meeting where these oral reports were recorded, I received no response. Therefore, I question the value of sending even one representative to this conference, let alone two representatives when there is virtually no accountability to justify participation. This, in my opinion, is a misuse of public funds. We as citizens/taxpayers/voters deserve better accountability and certainly better responsiveness when an enquiry is made about such an important and costly event such as the UCBM. Both Mayor Bauer and Mr. Thielmann have access to my e-mail address and could choose to provide me with the information I am looking for regarding their participation at the recent UCBM. Mayor Bauer could also use this opportunity to contact me regarding my previous questions. Gary Johnson, Keremeos

Keremeos resident Wilf Miller recalls early days in Alberta To the Editor: In the county of Castor in Alberta there was a neighbour of mine who, in the hungry thirties made a lot of money hunting coyotes for their hides. They had to be caught in winter to get the nice, white expensive furs. His name was Don Reidel. He used a team of thoroughbred horses on the front bobs of a bobsleigh, and a large box on it to carry blood hounds - also purebred. When he saw a nice coyote, he would drive his rig at top speed and when he got abreast of a coyote he would turn the dogs loose. They would kill the coyote without hurting the hide. He used to get a lot of money this way and did very well. He had a very pretty
wife and she had the finest of clothes, and this was in the hungry thirties. My father was also a very successful farmer in those days. There were eight of us kids and dad and mom. We milked upwards of 26 cows and sold the cream, and poured gallons of skim milk to the pigs. We made a good living while many in Alberta had nothing. We drove a 1921 Buick and paid 18 cents per gallon for gasoline. We also made a little money in the fall. My dad owned a threshing machine and at age 15 and older I ran that around the county, threshing for people for several seasons. As ever, Wilf Miller, Keremeos

Increasing interest in Copper Ridge modular home park as new homes appear able housing for seniors 55 years of age and over. “They have looked after us well,” Sadowick said of Moduline. “If there are any issues with the product, they are here immediately.” Sadowick said that the homes could be delivered within six to eight weeks. “I believe they make some of the best modular homes around,” he said, noting such strengths as 2x6 exterior walls, cement exterior planking and four twelve roof slopes.

Grant funds additional meals for social program Valley First grants $1,820 to Lower Similkameen Community Services Society By Steve Arstad email@example.com The Lower Similkameen Community Services Society (LSCSS), committed to promoting and providing programs that enhance quality of life by improving the social conditions, housing, health and education of local citizens, recently received a cheque for $1,820 from Valley First Credit Union for their Adult Mental Health Program. Gustavson House is one of LSCSS’s programs which provides a meeting place, opportunities for vocational skill development, and a hot meal to adults suffering from mental illness. The aim of the program is to assist in the recovery process by providing socialization and a safe place for clients to connect with each other.

Village council news
By Steve Arstad news@keremeosreview. com South Okanagan Seniors Wellness Society’s Elder Abuse Prevention Coordinator Jean Shirritt made a presentation to Keremeos Village Council at the regular meeting held on Monday, October 21. Shirritt spoke to an audience at the Seniors Centre earlier this month. She spoke to council about the difficulties in getting the message out to the senior population with respect to elder abuse - what could be done and how it could be identified, noting that a good reference resource was the Seniors Guidebook to Safety and Security, an RCMP publication that can be viewed at: http://www.rcmpgrc.gc.ca/pubs/ccapsspcca/seniors-aineseng.htm Keremeos Detachment Commander Mike Gallagher
introduced the new regional commander to council. Kevin Hewco is the new superintendent for the South Okanagan Similkameen, taking over from Brad Haugli. Hewco promised to council he would endeavour to deliver police services to the community at the best cost possible, and that community involvement and consultation would be a cornerpost of his leadership. Hewco told council he had developed a four man “prolific offender unit” whose job it would be to monitor and police the region’s prolific offenders. Gallagher presented third quarter crime statistics for Keremeos to the board, noting that calls for service were down 13 per cent over the same period last year. He noted that a recent vandalism spree along Seventh and Veterans Avenue

Olalla history - Part four
Olalla was an important stopping point for stage traffic prior to the railway Contributed Mr. Tom Smitheran of Olalla is another long time resident of the community who has memories of yesterday. Smitheran lives in a comfortable log home that is connected by a breezeway to another log building,which is probably an original home in the area. In the 1800s, Olalla was a camping area for a transient native population. It was the site for early “rendezvous.” Such gatherings were held in spring to gather roots, as a possible spring tonic, as well as for celebrating the end of winter. Another gather-
ing was held in summer to pick Olalla berries, possibly in August. Many European and native folks came together as families. In pioneer days, these unions were being discouraged on reservations, and the federal government paid these couples to move into Olalla through the use of a moving allowance. This helped to boost Olalla’s population, helping it to become a bustling settlement. Logging and mining of copper provided some early employment opportunities. A large mining operation just above 12th Street once employed 10 to 12 miners. Many mining claims still lie scattered throughout the hills above Olalla.
The West Kootenay Power Company built a transmission line to Copper Mountain, and the coming of the railway to Keremeos were projects hailed by settlers, miners, and farmers in the area. Freight and passengers were transported overland from Penticton via Green Mountain Road by stage coach. The hotel in Olalla was a stopping point for passengers going on to Keremeos. Around 1907, Hedley passengers would travel from Green Mountain Road over the “Seven Devils.” This moniker described seven roller coaster hills that had to be traversed when travelling by stage coach or horse back.
