Fires leave two families homeless Two weekend blazes in the South Similkameen destroy three buildings By Steve Arstad email@example.com
Festive season launches with Light Up Parade and weekend activities See page 12
A dispute between two departing farmworkers cost Craig and Angie Erikson their Sumac Road home on Saturday morning. Wind - fanned flames destroyed a storage building with second floor accommodations in addition to Erikson’s main residence. A bonfire, set by one of two farmworkers got
out of hand early Saturday morning on the property, which is located in the South Similkameen, about 15 kilometres south of Cawston. The farmworkers, a female from France and a male from the U.S. who were sharing accommodations, had earned their final paycheques and were preparing to return to the United States on Saturday. “John was apparently drinking on Friday night. The two got into a fight and she threw him out,” said Craig Erikson Monday morning. Erikson’s family had been out participating in family activities in Penticton Friday evening, returning
to their home around 9 p.m. “He got cold outside, and started a fire,” Erikson continued, pointing to a sparse grove of blackened pine trees near the burned out building. “He passed out, and when he woke up, the building was on fire.” Not only was the farmworker’s building burning by then, but so was Erikson’s home, which just happened to be directly in line with strong winds that began earlier Friday evening. Erikson credits the worker for warning the family of five, who all managed to escape, including the continued on page 3

Craig Erikson surveys the remains of his Sumac Road residence after burning embers from an outbuilding set it ablaze early Saturday morning. Beyond the trees in the background, an outbuilding was also gutted. family pets. The female farmworker also got out of her building safely. With strong, gusty winds pushing the temperatures to minus 15 Celsius and lower, there wasn’t anything Erikson could do. “I spent about a half hour running around before I realized I couldn’t save anything,” he said, noting that $60,000 worth of this summer’s crop of squash, which was located in the lower portion of the workers’ accommodaitons, was destroyed. The family didn’t have time to save much from the house, which was filled with smoke by the time they were awakened, sometime between midnight and 3 a.m. Erikson said they were able to grab their cell phones and personal identification before fleeing the house. “Everyone is safe, that’s the main thing,” Erikson said, “I’m really just thankful the kids are all okay, and that we all made it out.” The Eriksons put in more than 2,500 hours and $30,000 into renovations to their home last fall. “We had just spent thousands of hours and dollars fixing it up the way we wanted,” he said. The property is located outside of Keremeos and District Volunteer Fire Department’s protection area, so there was no response by the organization. Police did attend the scene Saturday morning. The family has insurance. Monday morning, the Erikson’s three pet dogs lounged idly near the

MADD presentation delivers timely, hard hitting message
By Steve Arstad email@example.com The South Similkameen Education on Substance Abuse Committe presented “Smashed” to senior Similkameen Elementary Secondary School classes on Monday, December 9. Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) representative Jamie Fischer made the presentation, meant to send a strong message about choices young adults can make with respect to impaired driving, a message particularly timely with the Christmas season and its stepped up police roadside checks. “I’ve seen this presentation more than 100 times, and it’s still hard for me to watch,” Fischer told the youths. Fisher is currently touring the western provinces high schools with the message for young adults to “think twice before making choices regarding drinking and driving.”
The presentation included a 30 minute Photo by Steve Arstad dramatization of a typiMothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) presenter Jamie Fischer described cal situation his personal tragedy due to impaired driving during a presentation to Kereyoung adults meos youth at Similkameen Elementary Secondary School on December 9. could find themselves in, and the tion like this when I was was a fictional film, but tragic consequences that in grade 10 and I rememthe reality is, it’s not so result from bad decisions. fictional. ber thinking back then The second portion of how this could never hapImpaired driving acthe presentation included pen to me. cidents aren’t accidents testimony from family It can happen to any - impaired driving can be members who had lost one of us.” controlled. loved ones to impaired You need to make that drivers. decision before you get “Four people each day behind the wheel,” he told are killed, on average, by the students. impaired drivers in CanIn discussing the film ada,” Fischer said followwith the students, Fischer ing the presentation.

Interior Health delegation visits Keremeos health facility By Steve Arstad firstname.lastname@example.org Interior Health officials completed a short tour of a number of municipalities within its jurisdiction with a stop in Keremeos on Wednesday, December 4. Dr. Robert Halpenny, President and Chief Executive Officer, and Norman Embree, Interior Health Board of Directors Chair, spent the afternoon at the Similkameen Health Centre where they met with local politicians and health care professionals. “It’s always good to have a look at our facilities, walk around and meet staff,” Halpenny said of the visit. Halpenny was impressed with Keremeos’ health facility. “I was very impressed with the good work they do in residential care,” he said, “I noticed that staff interact very well with residents. It’s also good to have physicians here in the same building - it’s one stop shopping.

I think things are working very well in this location.” Halpenny was also surprised by the extent of Keremeos’ health and community support organizations. “I was very impressed by the Lower Similkameen Community Services Society,” he said, “I wasn’t aware of the organization in the community before. The services they provide and the volunteers’ commitment to the community is outstanding.” Halpenny defended Interior Health’s food sourcing policies for its institutional kitchens. The policy has been criticized locally for not using locally available fruit, vegetables and meat in care facilities such as Orchard Haven. “Interior Health leads the province in purchasing locally,” he said, noting such examples as local cheeses, sausage and
carrots that were sourced out of the Okanagan. He added that Interior Health researched to find the most nutritious method available to flash freeze foods prior to use. “It all depends on what you mean by local,” he said, “quite a bit of it is local.” Regarding the subject of Interior Health’s 4,3,2,1 program regarding surface water treatment, Halpenny said that “changes were coming” on surface water regulation. “We don’t make the rules, but we try to enforce them,” he said, “the issue of surface water is becoming a source of concern.” Ivor Norlin, Interior Health Manager for the Health Protection Program, said the province had recently issued new provincial drinking water objectives for surface water, and work was under-
way to standardize objectives across the province. “The 4,3,2,1 objective in Interior Health policy,” Norlin said, “we’re in the process of looking at our large water systems to ensure that our objectives meet those of the province.” Norlin said he didn’t anticipate any big changes in policy as a result, but Interior Health would be issuing a report to water suppliers in the new year. “It’s a good opportunity for us to conduct an inventory, to see where our water suppliers are,” he said, “it provides us with a chance to check on ourselves.” Interior Health oversees 106 large surface water systems in their region. A large water system is one with 500 or more subscribers.

Local events are reminders to be safe this season Similkameen residents were offered some grim reminders of the need to think ahead and think safety as winter and the festive season approaches. Two house fires in the Lower Similkameen this weekend are reminders to the rest of us of the need to use caution and think safety when trying to keep warm this winter. Outdoor fires continue to present dangers, in spite of the fact that there may be snow cover on the ground and sub zero temperatures in the air. The use of supplemental heating sources like wood stoves can provide comfortable heat, but wood burning devices must be maintained and chimneys kept clean. Hopefully, this weekend’s dual fire tragedies are reminders enough for the rest of us, and the rest of the winter sees no more residents left out in the cold because fires lit for warmth and comfort got out of control. The Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) presentation at Similkameen Elementary Secondary School was also a grim reminder of the tragedies that come from impaired driving. Even as the presentation was made at the school on Monday morning, the region’s police were reporting that this year’s 90 day immediate roadside prohibitions had increased by almost a third over last year; all impaired files were at least equal to last year’s totals. If that’s not sobering news to you, perhaps it ought to be.

Marijuana referendum petition fizzles at two-thirds mark Sensible BC gets 210,000 signatures, vows to try again By Jeff Nagel Black Press The Sensible BC campaign to spark the decriminalization of marijuana in B.C. is officially up in smoke after falling short of its goal. Pot activists got 210,000 signatures or about two-thirds of the 300,000 needed – 10 per cent of voters in all 85 B.C. ridings – for their initiative petition to potentially trigger a referendum. They had aimed for a target of 450,000 to provide a buffer against disqualified signatures. “It’s a pretty remarkable accomplishment,” Sensible BC head Dana Larsen. “We’ve definitely
demonstrated a high level of organization and support for this cause. Had we been operating under the rules of pretty much any other referendum system in the world, we would have qualified to be on the ballot.” He said the 4,500 registered petitioners – triple the number at the start of the 90-day campaign – reached the threshold required by Elections BC in 19 electoral districts and got at least eight per cent in five more. Successful local campaigns happened on much of Vancouver Island, the Kootenays and other parts of the Interior. But in the voterich Lower Mainland that holds the most districts, marijuana advocates came up short. They reached the 10 per cent threshold in just Vancouver-West End and VancouverMount Pleasant, with
no other local wins in the rest of Metro Vancouver or the Fraser Valley. They came closest in the three North Shore ridings with eight per cent plus. Sensible BC aimed to compel the province to pass legislation banning police from expending any time and resources on simple marijuana possession. Larsen said canvassers were harried in some areas by opponents and at times by calls to police as they tried to collect signatures on SkyTrain and BC Ferries. The outcome is nowhere near the 700,000 signatures gathered by Fight HST forces en route to their winning referendum. But Larsen argues the province must now look “very seriously” at the marijuana issue, particularly as states such as Washington and Colorado move to full pot legalization.

He says history shows even failed campaigns can have impact. A prior initiative in 2002 pushing proportional representation got 98,000 signatures but led to a citizens assembly on electoral reform and ultimately two referendum questions on the issue. Signatures were being delivered to Elections BC Monday and Larsen said Sensible BC will take a break over Christmas before deciding when to mount a new petition campaign, along with other forms of political engagement. “We’re definitely going to do it again,” he said.

To the Editor, On Wednesday, December 4, I hosted my second yearly “Volunteer Appreciation Event” for contributors of RDOS Area “G”. This year’s event was held at Tree to Me just outside of Keremeos. Sage Bush winery gave a wine tasting and we enjoyed nibblies and pastries prepared by the talented staff of Tree to Me. First, I apologize to anyone who helps out in this electoral area who was missedmy invitation list began simply enough with the community groups who apply for grant-in-aids through the RDOS. I added larger, immediately identifiable organizations like the fire departments, recreation commissions, and improvement district boards, but I am sure there are people who I missed and for that I am sorry. I hope to “catch” you next year as the event is meant to celebrate all of the work you willingly gift each other to make the Similkameen Valley a better place. Highlights of the evening included the Keremeos Fire Department who turned out in parade uniform; this team looked dashing. Anyone who has seen firefighters decked out in full gear know that “they all look the same”; you can’t see much of their faces and their bodies are hidden under twenty pounds of clothing. At this event we could recognize our individual heroes and it was great to see! Hedley Fire Department and Keremeos Fire Department
members got a chance to socialize without it being around an emergency scene. At this event I thanked a few people whose ongoing efforts and contributions touch many groups and impact many people. I gave out a few certificates of award to couples; we have some dynamic “partnerships” who contribute even more together; their lives seem devoted to service of others. Not all recipients were able to attend, but the awards recognized the following couples, in alphabetical order: Doug and TJ Bratt, Dave and Gabi Cursons, Graham and Myrtle Gore, John Armstrong and Judy Chisholm. Awards to individuals included Joe Littlefield and Beryl Wallace. I am sorry to say that Joe Littlefield will be moving from the Similkameen Valley to a new home in the Lower Mainland. Here is the wording of Joe’s award- those of you who know Joe should say your farewells soon! Award Certificate presented to Joe Littlefield: for his tireless dedication to community through trail development, his mentorship to those younger and less wise, and for his willingness to share his time, opinions and insights in the development and implementation of a Similkameen Valley-wide tourism plan. Thank you, Joe. You will be missed. Angelique Wood, Hedley
Longer hours at the dump would be helpful To the Editor: Perhaps you could check out the following: The one bag limit for house-hold garbage pick-up would definitely work if we all used commercial garbage bags and the weight of such be double the present single one. I find it’s the summer, when family and friends come to visit and enjoy the Okanagan, when more waste is created. I inquired to the RDOS - why is it that Osoyoos weekly one bag residents have garden waste picked up every second week and yet their landfill is open far more than the Keremeos operation, which is open only on Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. I forgot to ask if Osoyoos residents pay the same per year as Area “G”. I did suggest to former Mayor Walter
Despot many moons ago that the landfill scale backward shack location was a joke and I was assured then, that weigh scales and a new shack location would soon be in place. I also asked the mayor if it would be possible to have the landfill open for an extra half day during the week while the busy spring and fall yard clean up is under-way. A lot of retired folk would be happy, and any Sunday congestion on the hill leading to the backward scale shack would be scaled down. So far, like always, change will not happen until the idea becomes a political idea - or a brake failure with a vehicle sliding backwards down toward the by-pass road due to a domino effect on an icy slippery wintery hill occurs.

Keremeos council gives third reading to ag zoning amendment Zoning amendment regarding medical marijuana production in ag zone receives third reading By Steve Arstad email@example.com A public hearing preceded the December 2 meeting of council over proposed text amendments to the village’s agricultural zonings. The text amendments clarified the use of village agricultural land by defining agricultural use as not including a medical marihuana facility. There was no one present in council chambers to oppose the amendment. Keremeos Village Council recieved a letter from the District of Kent.
The letter concerned the provincial core review of the Agricultural Land Commission and Agricultural Land Reserve. The District of Kent expressed an interest in maintaining the status quo of the ALC and ALR, requesting a longer period for public input in the event the two agencies were reviewed. Council received the letter for information purposes. Council also received a memo from the Union of BC Municipalities, providing additional information to council about Multi-Materials BC (MMBC), a new recycling program scheduled for implementation next year. Waste pick up and recycling in Keremeos is coordinated through the regional district; council received the memo for information. Council read the text amendment regarding medical marihuana production a third time prior to meeting in closed session.

News in brief Mounties get their man Keremeos RCMP have a man in custody following December 8 break-ins at Similkameen Pharmacy and Keremeos Community Church. Entrance was gained through the front window in both establishments. Various items, including food and food related items were taken from the church, while Similkameen Pharmacy suffered
losses in the $2,000 range. The accused faced a day in court on December 10. New chair and vice chair at regional district The Regional District Okanagan Similkameen Board of Directors elected their chair and vice chair at the inaugural meeting of 2014 on December 5. Osoyoos rural Director Mark Pendergraft and Keremeos Director Manfred Bauer squared off in a two way race for the chair person position. Incumbent Pendergraft, who replaced former
Chair Dan Ashton after he left the regional district to run provincially earlier this year, succeeded in being elected for 2014. The vice chair position was also a two way race, this time between incumbent Keremeos Director Bauer and Penticton Director Gary Litke, with Litke prevailing. Summerland Director Janice Perrino retained the chair position for the regional hospital board, with Penticton Director Judy Sentes taking vice chair. The two positions were won by acclamation.

Business activity favourable in spite of cold weather Weekend Christmas activities prove to be a draw for out of valley residents By Steve Arstad firstname.lastname@example.org Keremeos residents spent a chilly evening watching the annual Light Up parade on Seventh Avenue, December 6. It was one of the colder events in recent memory, with spectators noticeably fewer than in previous years. Icy patches on the streets didn’t help those navigating on foot, either. Still, several hundred lined the streets to welcome the Christmas season with a parade containing roughly the same number of floats as last year. Seventh Avenue was a brighter place this year with the opening of two businesses on the north side of the business section. “It went well,” said parade marshall Marie Marvin. “There was some confusion over the start time of the parade, which left a few people out in the cold for longer than they would have liked, but, considering the weather, there was a good turn out.” Start time of the parade had been publicized as beginning at 5 p.m., but things did not get underway until after 5:30, as some parade participants were given a later start time. Many spectators took advantage of the generous offerings of several businesses, including Seventh Street Diner and Country Wine Celler, who offered hot beverages during the parade. One of the busiest locations on Seventh Avenue was the front sidewalk of the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce, where a table generously laden with desserts and hot drinks was steadily surrounded by spectators looking for a boost against the bone chilling temperatures. Similkameen Country held a very popular craft fair at Victory Hall this year, with every table utilized. The fair was particularly busy Friday night, with traffic down Saturday, most likely due to the uncomfortable cold weather. Forbidden Fruit’s Steve Venables reported an excellent turnout Sunday for Similkameen Wineries Christmas wine tours, which took place on the weekend. “Saturday was brutal,” he said, but Sunday was up 15 per cent over last year.” Venables said that Forbid-
den Fruit hosted visitors from all over the Okanagan on the weekend, including a number of visitors from Prince George, and even one couple from California. “So much depends on the weather this time of year. We were pleased,” Venable said of the weekend business. Grist Mill manager Chris Mathieson was also happy with the weekend turnout for a number of events at the mill, including Sunday brunch and a weekend of kids crafts. “Our weekend was pretty well attended,” Mathieson said, “Sunday brunch was packed we had 70 people.” Mathieson said a number of brunch guests came in the form of groups from the Okanagan. They were coming not only to eat, but to take in Cawston Theatre Players’ Christmas play, “Hotel Bethlehem.” Mathieson said approximately 150 people visited the mill on the weekend. The kids craft fair held on Saturday and Sunday, offered children an opportunity to make a number of different Victorian era crafts, including such things as pop up cards and personally created wrapping paper.

Challenge Penticton appears before regional district board for 2014 grant funding By Steve Arstad email@example.com Kelly Hopkins, Marketing and Events Manager for Challenge Penticton, and triathlete Alan Kidd managed to attract the regional district board’s attention in time to make a last minute presentation to the board in order to be considered for grant funding in the RDOS 2014 budget. The unscheduled presentation included the distribution of Challenge golf shirts to board members by Hopkins as Kidd described the organization’s plans for the next Penticton Challenge race. “Support from the regional district is essential,” said Kidd, following a brief powerpoint presentation, adding the race society was making improvements to the event for 2014 by adding a half triathlon and “Kids of Steel” program. He added that Challenge was striving to increase registration, which in turn would increase tourism in the area. “That’s all fine, but how did you end up last year?” asked Area “D” Director Tom Siddon, adding the board had pitched in (with a grant) this year, and was currently facing some tough decisions regarding the 2014 budget, already projected to
be higher than last year’s. “Did you come out on target?” he asked. Kidd responded that Challenge Penticton had met their targets, but one target also projected the group to become profitable in five years. “Not all the figures are in,” he said, “we’re proceeding nicely, we still need some help, that’s why we’re here.” Additional attempts by directors to find out the financial position of Challenge Penticton were answered evasively, to the point where Kidd replied Challenge Penticton was not obligated to reveal its financial position. Summerland Director Janice Perrino offered to go in camera to find out, saying that she was struggling with the decision, without knowing where Challenge Penticton was with respect to the group’s finances. The delegation departed after requesting the same amount granted by the regional district for 2013 $25,000. The board raised the Challenge Penticton grant request during budget discussions later in the meeting, going in camera for an initial discussion regarding the race’s finances. Afterwards, the board was at
odds over the significance of the Challenge race on a regional basis, with Osoyoos Director Stu Wells calling some of the board’s response to the request “Pentictoncentric.” Several board members recalled this year’s request from Challenge Penticton to be a “one off” deal, noting they were back once again, while other directors indicated an interest in pursuing a “phasing out” of the grant by decreasing annual amounts. “I remember the last request as being ‘one time,’” said Oliver Director Ron Hovanes. “I said they would be back - we might as well make it a line item. I don’t think I will support this.” “We have $600,000 worth of financial pressures to deal with in the 2014 budget,” said Area “D” Director Tom Siddon, “we took $25,000 out of economic development this year - it was to be a one time deal to ensure a smooth launch (of the race). I’d agree to $12,000 - cut it in half.” The board found some consensus in Siddon’s comments, and after further discussion, agreed to add Challenge Penticton’s request for a grant to the 2014 budget, in the amount of $12,000.

The society formed to develop a long term sustainability plan for the Similkameen Valley and includes; the mayors and elected officials from Princeton, Keremeos, the Upper and Lower Similkameen Indian Bands, and all the Similkameen valley regional directors. The first presentation on the agenda was an update on the Similkameen Valley tourism project via Simone Carlysle-Smith, Community Development Specialist from TOTA. (Thompson Okanagan Tourism Association) This is a pilot project done in partnership with SVPS and TOTA to market the Similkameen Valley. In April of 2013, the new brand, “Similkameen Valley - Rugged. Rustic. Real.” was revealed during the celebration of the destination brand and website: www.similkameenvalley.com. “This case study is a great demonstration of what can be done with limited resources,” said
Carlysle-Smith. Further tools and partnerships were introduced by Carlysle-Smith. Available sites for locals to promote their businesses and events including the Similkameen Valley site are; www.hellobc.com, Similkameen Valley on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. A partnership has been developed with Black Press to produce the Similkameen Valley 2014 Official Travel Experiences Guide. The contact to place your advertising in this guide is with Sandi at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 250-4992653. The travel experiences guide will be out in March of 2014. In the meantime, stakeholders can either update or add their information on the Similkameen Valley website and begin promotion of the valley now. Manfred Bauer, mayor of Keremeos and chair of SVPS thanked Carlysle-Smith for her presentation adding, “Thanks for making us the pilot project.” Similkameen Watershed Study An update on the Similkameen Watershed Study was presented to the members of SVPS by Doug French, Public Works Manager for the Regional District of Okanagan Similkameen. In September of 2013 Fortis Generation Inc. began the next phase of feasibility studies for the
Similkameen River Water Storage and Hydroelectric Generating Facility located approximately 15 km south of Princeton. First Nations engagement and working with the Province of British Columbia to obtain investigative permits to access land to conduct technical and environmental studies needed are in progress now. With the expectation of Fortis having to do environmental assessments, it may be possible to “piggy back on that information.” Concerns relating to the study include; - risk of inadequate water supply, review of storage options, water quality monitoring and ground water - review of the aquifer mapping. The water quality and nutrients in tributaries and lakes are listed as moderate in the analysis as well as riparian areas. French noted that locals are “championing” the riparian areas. “The watershed is in good shape,” he said. The next step recommended is the calculation of natural flow for future water usage. A new Water Sustainability Act by the provincial government is in progress and is scheduled to be introduced into the spring 2014 legislative session. In light of the possibility of an environmental study by Fortis and the new provincial act, projects ready for Stage Two in the watershed study will be put on hold. More information will be available in the spring.

VAN DEN HOEK JOHANNES â€œJOEâ€?: S September 29, 1932 - December 7, 2013 W With great sadness, we announce that on w Saturday December S 7, 2013, Joe van den 7 H Hoek passed away at the age of 81 years. Joe was predeceased by his father Jan van den Hoek, his mother Janneke (Riemens) van den Hoek, his sisters Maria van den Hoek and Janneke (van den Hoek) de Glopper. Joe will be forever loved by his wife Ria, his daughters Sonja van den Hoek (Jim), Dianne Clifton (Brad), Freda McLean (Doug) and his six grandchildren Joel, Ashley, John Ross, Marla, Taylor and Carey. Joe was born in den Helder, Holland in 1932. He immigrated to Canada in 1948 with his father, step-mother, and stepbrother. His sister immigrated a few years later in 1950 with her family. As a young teenager, Joe worked doing various jobs, such as a ranch hand, on the railway and then as a miner. On October 22, 1954, Joe married the love of his life, Ria. Together, in 1970, they bought the family home with an orchard in Keremeos, BC to raise their three daughters. Joe was an orchardist for over 40 years and a miner for over 30. Joe enjoyed camping, Ă€shing, skating, watching soccer and hockey on TV. He was a jack of all trades and willing to help others. He devoted his love, time and energy to his family, especially to his wife Ria. Dad loved her with all his heart for the 59 years that they were married. Joe also had a love for animals, especially dogs. There was never a time during Joeâ€™s life that he did not have a dog or two at his side. Joe will be forever remembered for his kind and gentle demeanor. Interment will be held at the Keremeos Cemetery on Liddicoat Road, on Monday December 16, 2013 at 1pm. In celebration of Joeâ€™s life a tea will be held at the Keremeos Elks Hall, Veterans Avenue Keremeos BC at 2pm.
