A jewel of an evening Lisa Carleton lisa@similkameenspotlight.com

Kathryn Glover wins the main diamond prize and a tile art plaque during the annual ladies night, The Diamond Dinner hosted by the Royal Canadian Legion Branch #56 Princeton. The 12th annual Diamond Dinner was emceed for the first time by Cliff Glover who gave great praise to John Haayer, retired founder of the event. For eleven years John had put his heart and soul into the Princeton Legion’s Ladies Diamond Dinner. He engineered the whole concept of the event in his mind and made it a reality. He perfected his Ladies Diamond Dinner and turned it into the one and only ladies semi-formal affair that the town of Princeton has. John always stated that without all of his volunteers, he could never have accomplished this incredible project. Speaking for myself and the other volunteers, we always look forward to this night when we can honor our ladies of Princeton. Many of our volunteers here have shared this wonderful journey with John over the past 11 years. He has passed along his knowledge and experience to us so we can carry on his heritage of the Ladies Diamond Dinner and hopefully fill his rather large shoes to make him proud. Glover proposes a toast to John: This is our time to honour John Haayer – so let’s raise our glasses in respect and thanks for his concept, many hours of involvement and dedication over the years. By the way, John say’s, “to have fun, drink, be merry, and take a cab home!” ~ Thank you John.

The Princeton Kokanee Swim Club celebrated registration day with a party at the Riverside Center on Thursday, April 3. The kids enjoyed a super game of twister, hot dogs and cupcakes.

Kokanees open season with a party Lisa Carleton lisa@similkameenspotlight.com

The days of May 7 to August 16 consist of the regular Kokanee Swim Club season in Princeton. Ages 4 to 18 are welcome to join Kokanees and ages 18 and up to join Krokanees. Do not worry if you missed the sign up party—registration, as well as all program schedules, are available on line at http:// www.princetonkokanees.ca. It is the goal of the Kokanees to offer age specific training for all of our athletes geared towards challenging each individual and developing each individual to the best of their abilities. KidSport BC grant applications are also available. The absolute final deadline to register for the swim club season is May 31, 2014. Outside of regular swim sessions, the

season hosts five regular swim meets as well as regionals and then finishing with provincials. As one of the fundraisers for the upcoming season, the Princeton Kokanees are holding a Lotto 50/50 Raffle. Tickets are $20 each and the winner will be drawn during the June 7 Princeton Try Swim Meet. Tickets are available from Princeton Kokanee Swim Club families. Fifty percent of the funds raised through ticket sales will go to the winner and the remaining half of the funds to the Princeton Kokanee Swim Club to assist with operating costs. The club is hoping to sell 400 tickets­—that is a $4,000 prize for one lucky winner and $4,000 to the Kokanees.

Community focus ~ Lorraine Lance Still passionate about Hedley Museum The Spotlight is pleased to announce that Art Martens joins us as a contributor, sharing articles that focus on the people and community of Hedley, B.C. More of Art’s work can be found by visiting his blogsite at livingsignificantly.ca Photo by Art Martens: Lorraine Lance pictured outside of one of her greatest passions, the Hedley Museum. Art Martens livingsignificantly.ca

Sitting at a large wooden table in the log home of Eric and Lorraine Lance, I felt I had stepped back into an earlier time and a simpler way of life. Built by Eric, the home overlooks the Similkameen River just west of Hedley and allows an extensive view of the valley. It seems an appropriate home and setting for a deeply committed woman who has devoted years and much energy to preserving the area’s history. As a young woman, Lorraine studied broadcast communications at BCIT. “My goal was to work in news reporting,” she said. When she and Eric moved to Princeton, he worked at the mine and she was employed by the Similkameen Spotlight. She wrote a column on pioneers and recalls interviewing the Rabbitts, a well known pioneer family in the area. She also served as assistant editor for a time. For her it was “an extraordinarily interesting era.” The mine and mill were both expanding, Princeton was booming and housing was scarce. She remembers vividly living in a 40 foot trailer. When they acquired the three acres on which they now live, they moved into a small rustic dwelling on the property. Eric began building the log house, at times with her assistance. Lorraine says it was Ruth Dunham, a longtime Hedley area resident, who encouraged her to get involved with the group that wanted to start a museum. Ruth told her, “everyone can make a difference in the community. It’s your choice.” Lorraine quickly caught the early vision. When she speaks now of the group’s efforts, it is with a rare passion known only to the totally committed. She explains that the group’s purpose was to preserve the unique heritage of the Hedley area by encouraging and participating in historic building restoration and site conservation. The 1983 Constitution expressed the founders desire to also foster the development of arts and crafts in the

community. Initially they named the organization The Hedley Heritage, Arts and Crafts Society. In 1998 the name was changed to The Hedley Heritage Museum Society.    “I wanted to do the museum work,” Lorraine says with just a hint of regret, “but I was always slotted into fund raising.” Although this wasn’t her wish, she believed fervently in the society’s goals and pursued government grant opportunities with a relentless tenacity. She particularly recalls a $20,000 grant, which was used to buy the museum property. Also a Cultural Initiatives grant of $25,000, devoted to constructing the building. It is evident that Lorraine feels immense respect for the founding group. “It was Helen Moore who gave us the idea,” she says. “She had common sense for what to do. She was the only one who had lived here during the mining days. She knew the history. If anyone can be called the saint of the museum, it is Helen.” Bernice Hodges, an early proponent, now deceased, was a potter and artist. Vince and Audrey Flynn gave many hours to tracking down photos and obtaining permission to use them. Mike Sanford, a mining engineer, served as society president a number of years. His wife Debra was treasurer during that time. “It was a real team effort,” Lorraine remembers. Presently Lorraine is dealing with a significant health challenge that prevents her from being active in museum work. Her passion is still evident, however. “The training of volunteers is important,” she says. “They need to understand museums don’t need a lot of heat. Lighting is critical. Pictures can be damaged by light. Only duplicates of pictures should be on walls. Also, water and museums don’t go together well.” She believes a museum is important because it helps a community retain its sense of history. “It provides us with a better understanding of our rich and vibrant past,” she says.

SpotlightOPINION Leaving Seniors behind financially Guest Editorial Black Press

Most seniors live on a fixed income. According to Employment and Social Development Canada, the median  retirement income for women aged 65 and older in 2011 was $20,200. Senior men aged 65 and older didn’t fare much better, their median retirement income in 2011 was $30,100. At least 90 per cent of seniors rely on Canadian Pension Plan payments and Old Age Security payments. These payments are adjusted annually according to the Consumer Price Index. This seems fair, if the price of goods goes up, so does the amount received from CPP and OAS. Many private pension funds do the same thing. Since 2002, with the exception of 2011, the CPI in Canada has hovered around 2 per cent or lower.  In 2011 the CPI averaged 2.9 per cent, whereas in 2009 the CPI averaged 0.3 per cent. In their wisdom, the B.C. Liberal government, in an attempt to balance the budget, decided not only to cut ferry service and increase fares by 4 per cent, they also decided to get rid of free travel for seniors. For example, seniors must now pay $8.15 for one-way travel, Monday to Thursday, between Tsawwassen and Swartz Bay.  Previously, seniors could hop the ferries on foot free of charge from Monday to Thursday. To add injury to injury, BC Hydro is raising its rates 9 per cent this year, and is forecasting an increase of 28 per cent over the next five years. These increases are far beyond the CPI, such that with every increase, never mind in the price of food, the price of insurance, of everything, seniors on a fixed income are losing ground. On the bright side, more of the seniors that live on Vancouver Island will be staying on Vancouver Island, going to the legislature to stay warm to cut heating costs, which means more people in the public gallery keeping an eye on the provincial government.

Megan is pleased to have the opportunity to represent her community once again. “I loved the Ambassador Program, she said, “I entered it when I was 15, was crowned when I was 16 and have been helping with the program ever since.” Megan says before she entered the Princeton Youth Ambassador Program, she “couldn’t talk.” Laughing out loud she states, “There’s no problem with that now.” Megan enjoyed the volunteer hours that went along with the program and found out that she really liked to volunteer. Her sponsors played a large roll in her success as Princeton Ambassador. “My sponsors at Copper Mountain Mine were incredible,” said Megan. “They are not just a company—and I thank them so much for the support they gave me.” Now 19 years of age, Megan is excited at the prospect of experiencing the BC Ambassador Program and says, “It’s nice to know that Princeton supports me in representing our community. I am looking forward to the experience.” Megan is grateful for her current sponsors as well; sponsorship to the BC Ambassador Program is shared by the Princeton Youth Ambassador Program and by the Royal Canadian Legion Branch #56 Princeton. She is currently working toward her

goal of becoming a paramedic. She has learned through her volunteer experience that she “likes helping people.” There have been, “ton’s of people who have inspired me to become a paramedic,” she said. In particular though, the paramedics that took care of her mother when she suffered a fall from the roof of her home, “were incredible,” said Megan. “I watched how they treated Mom and it was so nice to know that I could trust them.” Watching her father, Doug Pateman, president of Princeton Highway Extrication Society come home after a successful rescue has been inspiring as well. “When Dad comes home after he’s saved someone, he is so happy—I’d like to be able to be trusted like that—to be able to help people.” The British Columbia Lisa Carleton/Spotlight Ambassador Program is avail- Princeton Ambassador 2012/13 Megan Pateman, able to young men and women represents Princeton in the British Columbia (ages 17 to 24) who have held an Ambassador Program.

Princeton Minor Posse Princeton Minor Hockey Association

Another season of hockey action has come to an end for Princeton’s Minor Posse. It ended with the annual awards banquet where players, teams and volunteers were celebrated by the association with Pasha’s Pizza and perfect little hockey cupcakes created by Natasha Smith. Each year, the association hands out awards to special members of the association. Some go to players while others go to coaches and volunteers. “Hockey is such a team sport,” said Princeton and District Minor Hockey Association (PDMHA) President Candice Fraser-Beswick. “We want every player here to know that we are proud of you and that it has been an honour watching you grow as players.” Special awards are as follows: Coach of the Year - Daryl Clarke - presented by president Candice Fraser- Beswick - “Daryl put in a lot of hours with these kids. He came to practices and games with a smile on his face and supported the kids throughout the season with his fair play approach.” President’s Choice - John Van Horlick - presented by president Candice Fraser-Beswick - “John is a valuable volunteer who devoted his time, shared experiences and knowledge of the game. He made a positive impact with everyone he crossed paths with this year.” Wolf Hauschild Memorial - Karen Fulton presented by president Candice Fraser-Beswick “This award went to the person the executive felt was the most dedicated volunteer. She has made a positive impact on the club with her eager and enthusiastic approach.” Goalie of the Year - Jett Larsen - presented by vice-president Dierra Maynard - “It takes an exceptional kid to put his hand up and say, “I want to be the one to have high-speed pucks shot at my head. Goalies can be the heroes one game and take a lot of heat the next. He worked for this and he deserves it.” Kurt Krenn Memorial - Lane French - presented by Lenore Krenn - “The Kurt Krenn Memorial Award is a way of keeping Kurt’s memory alive and gives him an opportunity in his absence to honour others with the same hunger for the game,” stated Fraser-Beswick. “It is an award that is earned for working your hardest, for praising your teammates in their success, for showing up and not giving up. The award that shows someone’s true dedication to the sport Kurt loved so much. You are making this town and hockey club proud and we are so honoured to give you this award. You are true to

the words “For love of the game.” Keep shining Lane.” Award of Excellence - Grant Yee Presented by Dierra Maynard .“PDMHA gives out an Award of Excellence each year to a deserving individual who stands out for their ‘on and off ice character and achievement’. Usually the award is given to a player who shows kindness and patience to their teammates. Someone who shows qualities of leadership. Because of Grant Yee’s talent, his heart, his positive attitude

and willingness to live life with determination from start to finish, PDMHA is proud to present it to him.” Most Sportsmanlike Team - Novice - presented by Karen Fulton - “The definition of Sportsmanlike Behaviour is: behaving in an honourable and appropriate manner; exhibiting fair play. (Harry Sheehy) - “It is your response to winning and losing that makes you a winner or a loser.” “The Novice team including the parents were very sportsmanlike. The kids were well behaved in the ice and the parents were well behaved in the stands…that is what our association strives to exemplify.”

Naturalists Explore Lower Allenby

SpotlightLIFESTYLES

Spring sneaks up and so does the cleaning

Janis Wright Vermilion Forks Field Naturalists

Eleven Vermilion Forks Field Naturalists, led by John Henry, appreciated the mild weather on Saturday, April 5, as we hiked for two and a half hours around lower Allenby and explored a variety of terrain and conditions. We walked through patches of snow, ice, mud, long dry grass, river rock, and tailings sand. We discovered the remains of a cabin, an old cement foundation, periodic ponds, and curious areas of soil erosion where ruptures in the earth have formed large “potholes” of different sizes. Most intriguing was John’s find of a unique vertical rock wall, compiled of an assortment of layers of rock, seemingly precarious but obviously formed long ago. We relished a short lunch break in that area and then resumed our trek, traveling through woods, meadows, and down along the river. It’s invigorating to be outdoors in early spring, the onset of which was heralded by the numerous species of birds we observed, including a golden eagle, song sparrows, swallows and red-winged blackbirds. We are all looking forward to the many more motivating field trips we have lined up for the next few months! Amanda Lahaie will be leading us on an easy walk around Swan Lake on Saturday, April 12, which will be a good opportunity to view the additions and improvements made by the club last year. Bring binoculars, camera, and lunch, confirm with Amanda at 295-7596, and we’ll meet at Billy’s at 10 a.m. Biologist Lisa Scott will give a presentation on Terrestrial and Aquatic Invasive Species at next month’s meeting, Tuesday, May 13 at Riverside Centre, at 7 p.m. These meetings and our field trips are open to the public, so please join us for an enlightening and enjoyable time.

CAPRICORN: A serious issue arises this week, Capricorn. You may have avoided addressing this issue in the past, but there is no putting it off now. Approach the issue with an open mind. AQUARIUS: When an associate presents a problem, you are the perfect one to present a solution, Aquarius. Make the most of this opportunity and others will appreciate your efforts. PISCES: Responsibilities at work may be a bit overwhelming, Pisces. You are held to a higher standard than others, and now is the time to show why. ARIES: Aries, despite a full workload, you are already looking ahead to some much-needed rest and relaxation. Focus on what’s on your plate at the moment. TAURUS: Taurus, your personal life follows you to work this week. You can often compartmentalize things, but you are finding it difficult to do that this week. GEMINI: Gemini, information that may alter your future plans is brought to your attention this week. It is not necessarily bad news, but you will need to alter your plans a little. CANCER: Cancer, financial responsibilities must be a priority this week. Now is the time to make important financial decisions that you have been putting off for several weeks. LEO: Your feelings are transparent this week, Leo. You can’t hide much from others, especially your romantic feelings. The person you admire will soon learn of your feelings. VIRGO: Virgo, a lot of drama is going on behind the scenes this week. How much you get involved is entirely up to you. Just be prepared for the consequences. LIBRA: Libra, you might have to set your personal needs aside this week in order to help a friend out of a difficult situation. You are ready to provide any assistance you can. SCORPIO: Responsibility comes naturally to you, Scorpio. However, sometimes you just have to let loose and show off how you are feeling. Others will have a new appreciation for you. SAGITTARIUS: You are on the brink of a breakthrough, Sagittarius. You just don’t know when it is coming. Be patient and you will be pleasantly surprised with events that unfold.
