Sarah Martin and Alex Rousseau are what you might call straight shooters. The two Lower Similkameen residents took gold for their archery skills at the recently held Canadian Indoor 3 -D Archery Nationals in Lethbridge, Alberta. Osoyoos archer and instructor Brock Paton also took home a gold medal. What’s even more remarkable is the fact that Martin is a relative newcomer to the sport - she began taking lessons last July after discovering the Osoyoos Traditional Photo by Steve Arstad Archery School. “I started shooting well,” said Martin, who caught the attention of coach Brock Sarah Martin and Alex Rosseau each won gold medals at the Canadian Indoor 3-D Nationals in Paton.She was encouraged, and began Lethbridge April 18-20. entering long bow recurve tournaments, culminating in the big win at the Leth“It was initially a ‘zen’ thing,” Sarah ferent time frame beyond the regular hunting bridge Nationals April 18-20. laughed, “then as Alex and I started do- season, so hunters with a bow license get an The trio took the men’s longbow, women’s ing well, we got wired - on our way home extended season.

ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING Thursday, May 29th, 2014
Anglican Church Hall - 607 5th Street, Keremeos
New Seventh Avenue business in Keremeos promises to bring new “flavour” downtown. Anna Marie Friesen throws open the doors to her new Keremeos business on Friday, May 2. “Canadianna Spicery” opens at 623 7th Avenue to sell a vast array of locally grown and blended spices, amongst other things. Friesen, who is partnering the business with husband Paul, is a former Keremeos resident who moved back to the village in February this year. “I lived here 22 years ago,” she explained, “my son was severely injured in a car accident, and we had to move in order to look after him.” Friesen has been selling spices for 14 years, having developed a number of exclusive blends on her own. “It all started with Country Pepper, the first blend I made,” she said, “it sells around the world now.” Friesen explained she was looking for something to do at home when she was given a number of herbs. She pondered what to make out of them when, in the middle of the night she got the idea to blend them with pepper. Since then, she has developed 30 different mixtures of spices., all natural. “There are no fillers, made with the freshest ingredients I can find,” she said. More recently, Friesen has begun making hot jellies (using habanero peppers) under the Dragon’s Breath name. “I won a wine basket at last year’s Similkameen Sizzle,” she said, “that gave me the idea to start making wine jellies out of Similkameen wines.” Friesen does all her cooking and preparation on site in a certified kitchen. She plans to open from 10 a.m until 5 p.m., closing Tuesday and Wednesday in order to fill orders to corner stores and restaurants that carry her products. “I think I will fit in well with what this valley is all about,” Friesen said about her business opportunity. “I plan to support local growers as much as possible, and promote locally as much as possible. My products will be the topping on all the great foods grown and produced here. Spices can flavour food really well, and provides a healthy substitute for salt.” Friesen has plans to sell other items in her shop, including gift baskets and other knick-knacks and “doo-dads.” She plans to make baked dog treats as well.

Students benefit from apprenticeship program
526 - 7th Avenue,
By Steve Arstad Two Similkameen Elementary Secondary School graduates from 2013 have reached 1,000 hours in their respected trades and have been awarded a $1,000 scholarship for their participation in the Secondary School Apprenticeship Program. The Secondary School Apprenticeship Program allows students to get credit for 480 hours towards Level 1 or 2 work based training hours and credit for up to 16 high school graduation credits (four courses). The SSA program runs year round at SESS and is open to all students over 16 years old. Brody Abbott did the SSA program for an Electrical Apprenticeship and Chelsea Ouimette’s SSA program was for Automotive Service Technician. The SSA program gives students a direction post graduation and provides students with necessary skills to be successful. This is an excellent program for students that are looking at a career in the trades. Staff at SESS are always looking for local journeymen to sponsor students in the SSA program.

Editorial Water policy has costly implications The Kaleden Irrigation District held its annual general meeting on April 28, sparsely attended by nine ratepayers. By the end of the meeting, however, there appeared to be a general consensus amongst those in attendance that the next time a meeting is held - in all liklihood, sooner than a year’s time - Kaleden Community Hall will be much fuller than it was on Monday night. The issue that is expected to result in greatly increased public attention concerns the recent ramping up of a provincially ordered policy being enforced by Interior Health concerning water quality standards for water purveyors across the province. To summarize the issue, the Kaleden Irrigation District faces future expenditures that could exceed $20,000 per ratepayer in order to satisfy the drinking water guidelines currently being mandated by the province. A big question arising Monday night concerned funding for the secondary disinfection and filtration processes being imposed by the province. Irrigation districts - like those of Kaleden, Keremeos and Okanagan Falls - do not have access to higher levels of government funding, so under current legislation, those costs would be totally borne by the ratepayers of the district. Other considerations discussed Monday night concerned such things as the necessisty of the legislation, exemption guidelines (Kaleden is expected to bear costs exceeding 10 million dollars for further water treatment because the district contains 533 subscribers, whereas Lakeshore Highlands, sourcing its water from the same lake, would not have to spend a dime, because that district has less than 500 ratepayers.) The issue is complex, but it appears that Monday’s meeting could be the catalyst that brings about healthy Kaleden ratepayer involvement in this potentially economically crippling legislation. For Keremeos residents, the issue may not be quite so immediate in nature, primarily due to the fact that the village’s water is sourced from underground, not surface sources. But the potential for equally crippling costs to be borne by Keremeos Irrigation District ratepayers is very real - and ratepayers would be wise to start asking questions sooner, rather than later.

B.C. oil refinery could answer many concerns By David Black Owner, Black Press
This is the second of two columns addressing what I see as the greatest threat to the B.C. environment in our lifetime. The Alberta oil industry’s Northern Gateway plan is to export bitumen to Asia via tankers from the BC coast. Under no circumstances should we allow that to happen. A bitumen spill at sea could destroy our coastline, together with the fish and wildlife that depend on it, for hundreds of years. My first column discussed the light oil spill by the Exxon Valdez and the terrible toll it took on the Alaskan habitat and fishery. It also gave proof that a bitumen spill would be far worse. A bitumen spill would be almost completely unrecoverable because it would sink and stay on the bottom of our seabed. The solution that is best for Canada is to build
a refinery in Kitimat. I am promoting and backing this solution. It will convert the bitumen to very light fuels that would float and evaporate if ever spilled. There are other enormous benefits: There will be a major reduction in greenhouse gases. We will use new cutting-edge Canadian technology in our refinery. It will be so clean that in combination with oilsands extraction there will be less CO2 than in the huge conventional oilfields and refineries of Iraq and Nigeria. In other words the Kitimat refinery will neutralize the extra greenhouse gases generated in Canada’s oilsands. This refinery will be built in Asia if not in Kitimat, and if so it will emit double the CO2 of our new design. This is the reason that Andrew Weaver of the BC Green Party is in favour of a Canadian refinery. An Asian refinery will also generate 100 train
cars a day of very dirty coke (much fouler than B.C. coal) which will be subsequently burnt in the atmosphere to create power. The Kitimat refinery will not result in the production of any coke. As we all live on one planet, it is far better for the global environment to build this refinery in Canada. Construction of the refinery will create 6,000 jobs in B.C. for five years. Operations at the refinery will result in more permanent jobs than any project has ever created in B.C. with approximately 3,000 direct jobs. These will be highly paid permanent jobs. These jobs will be available for the life of the refinery which should be in excess of 50 years. In addition there will be thousands of other jobs created in spinoff local petrochemical companies and in indirect employment throughout the province. The Canadian and pro-

vincial governments, local regional districts and municipalities, and many First Nations, will share in billions of new tax dollars each year. Unfortunately our Canadian oil companies are not interested in building a new major refinery. They are focused on extraction which is more profitable than refining. One of them challenged me to spearhead the refinery myself, so I am doing that. We have a solid business plan and as a consequence Chinese banks and other institutions are prepared to lend us most of the funds required to build the greenest and most efficient refinery in the world. We are currently moving ahead with engineering design and environmental work. We will also build a safe pipeline from Alberta to the refinery, with the active participation of First Nations. Modern

High tech solution reduces low tech labour By Steve Arstad firstname.lastname@example.org
The Village of Keremeos solved a number of low tech waterworks problems using a high tech solution on April 24. Village maintenance staff used the services of Suck it Up Environmental to disconnect a water service line and repair two others in the village. “This is a service we don’t normally use,” explained village Public Works Foreman Jordy Bosscha, “but in these cases, because of the proximity to buildings and potential disruption of other infrastructure, using Suck it Up made sense.” Suck it Up uses a combination of water pressure and vaccum technology to excavate
holes. In the case of the village’s work, Suck it Up Environmental excavated a hole roughly two and a half metres deep and a metre across, within centimetres of the Review office, in about an hour, allowing village maintenance staff to access a water line that needed to be disconnected. Another smaller diameter hole accessed a malfunctioning valve beside Berg’s Ox Yoke Collectibles, and a third hole excavated a valve box near the pool. Suck it Up Environmental’s truck costs the village approximately $250 per hour plus travel costs from Summerland. Last Thursday was the second time this year the village has used their services.

Hydroexcavating less invasive, less labour intensive Service is like microsurgery for close tolerance excavating By Steve Arstad email@example.com Ryan MacClean of Suck it Up Environmental said the company keeps its four trucks busy through work in both the municipal and private sectors. “We were just in Oliver yesterday, and less recently in Kelowna and West Kelowna,” he said, “we work up and down the valley, and beyond.” MacClean said the company, formerly known as “Ray Smith Services” has a solid reputation, and regularly does work outside the Okanagan and Similkameen valleys. Hydroexcavating uses a high pressure (3,000 psi) stream of water to break up and cut the earth, working adjacent a powerful vacuum that sucks the excavated material into a tank on the truck. Other tanks contain
15,000 gallons of water which is used sparingly (the Keremeos work used approximately 100 gallons) during the operation. The technology is used by municipalities to rebuild manholes, clean out sewage basins and excavate for mechanical repairs. Private enterprise uses the service to place telephone and hydro poles, suck out catch basins and perform an operation known as “pipe bursting”. “We have a device that we attach to an old pipe, with which we can then remove the old pipe and replace with new pipe, without extensive excavation,” MacClean explained. “Fortis and Telus use the service frequently”. MacClean said one of the company’s trucks is currently in Canmore, Alberta, placing four kilometres of pipe, ranging in diameter from 10 to 16 inches. “It does a pretty neat hole excavation,” MacClean said, “we can make round, square, rectangular - virtually any shape hole, in virtually any soil condition.” The village hopes to use the technique to clear blockages at either end of the village’s dike.
Village undergoes Similkameen River dike inspection Report recommends vegetation removal from dike slopes By Steve Arstad firstname.lastname@example.org A recent dike inspection on behalf of the Village of Keremeos’ has resulted in a recommendation to remove vegetation from the dike’s slopes. In a report prepared for the village by Associated Engineering, a dike condition assessment was also completed in addition to the villlage’s annual dike assessment. The village is the diking authority for the nearly two kilometre long dike that protects Keremeos from Similkameen River high water events.Village Chief Administrative Officer Laurie Taylor told council at the April 22 regular meeting that discussions were underway between the village and the Federal Department of Fisheries regarding the clearing of trees and vegetation along the dike’s slopes. Taylor also noted that storm outlets and flood boxes at the east and west end of the dike were for the most part, in good shape, but were plugged with debris. Short term work includes removal of all trees from
the dike slope to prevent a possible gap or weak point in the dike from forming should high water dislodge the vegetation. Engineers are also comparing this survey with past dike surveys to compare dike cross sections. The dike condition assessment consisted of a survey of the complete length of the dike, with survey points spaced 20 metres apart. Eight areas were identified as warranting further future investigation. The report also recommended regular dike inspections for settlements, bank erosion and sloughing and holes from burrowing animals or seepage. The report also recommended tying the east end of the dike into the slope of the railbed in order to provide continuity, an action that will require an engineered design. Cost of the annual inspection was $4,624.57, with the condition assessment costing an additional $3,725.55.

Fund raising dinner aids charitable foundation To the Editor: It has been encouraging that so many folks in Keremeos, Olalla, Hedley, Chopaka and Cawston have picked up their tickets to the first ever fund raising event for the Community Fund of the Lower Similkameen. The fund raising dinner is happening this Saturday May 3 at The Branding Iron Bar and Grill in Keremeos. There will be music and light entertainment as well as a choice of three different dinner courses. Tickets are $25 at Cawston Marketplace, The Grist Mill, Similkameen Agencies and the Branding Iron. The local committee was formed last year to pull together a kind of “community chest’ from which local groups could draw funds to back projects and programs in our area. Community Organizations that may be in line for grant funding from government or some private charities may now partner with the local community fund to help move their projects forward. As the local committee moves ahead It will
be critical to win the confidence of potential contributors and thereby increase the size of the fund. The more money in, the more community work happens. Contributions will be tax creditable. Bequests are welcome. Receipts are issued from the Community Foundation of The South Okanagan Similkameen. This foundation has benefited from very sound financial management over the past twenty years. Funds are applied for on an annual basis. Our local committee assembles to study applications and to prioritize. There is in excess of $10,000 already invested in the Lower Similkameen Fund. This weekend’s fund raising dinner is just the beginning of what the local committee hopes will be a positive resource to the area. You can find out more online at: www. cfso.net.

Up to each resident to choose to shop locally Knowing this list could continue, I cannot shop elsewhere with a clean conscience. I could not look my neighbours (employees of local business) in the eye were I not supporting those who provide their livelihoods. Laurie Taylor’s “apology” removes responsibility from the village office. Does the charter not allow local business to bid for local works? I grieve the loss of out Toonie Store, the Tea Shop, the Variety Store, etc. Each and every resident must search their conscience and choose either to support or disregard Keremeos businesses. I pray that our village office would provide a better example to consumers. Eroca Bendle. Keremeos
To the Editor: It is amazing that a village office would not give its own tax paying hardware store an opportunity to bid on a contract. I would have thought it in the best interest of any government to advocate shopping locally. Knowing of the many generosities of local businesses, including ; - Jake (Home Hardware) supplied restoration paint for a building attacked by a graffiti thug last month. - Our new baker supplied treats to a function last week. - Our grocery store constantly has a hand in supplying food, etc. to community projects.
Senior would like to form a group of jokers Mark Berman is an 89 year old senior who spends much of his time in Keremeos. He is interested in getting like-minded seniors together to form a “Jokers Club”. “I participated in one of these back east,” Berman explained, “it can be a lot of fun.” Berman said the club is a venue in which members are encouraged to individually stand up and tell a joke.

“If they are off on their delivery, or flub the joke, another member can get up and try and best the presentation,” Berman said. He thought it might be a great way for seniors and others to get together and socialize. Residents interested in getting together with Berman to tell jokes should contact him at 250462-7873. Friday

Long lost Port Aberni sports trophy rediscovered in Keremeos Repatriation of trophy from Port Alberni’s early sporting history has a Keremeos connection By Steve Arstad email@example.com An old sports trophy presented to the Port Alberni Athletic Association in 1912 that was lost for over 100 years recently found its way to a collectables shop in Keremeos before finally being repatriated to the Vancouver Island city earlier this year. Port Alberni city officials were notified of the trophy’s existence around Valentine’s Day this year. According to Bluenose Precious Metals owner Kosta Bakalos of Penticton, two ladies brought the trophy to him after attempting to contact authorities in Port Alberni. “They had emailed someone in Port Alberni asking if there was any interest in the trophy,” Bakalos said, “they hadn’t heard back from them, so they offered it to me.” Bakalos said he was told the piece had been purchased at a Keremeos second hand store. In fact, the trophy had been brought to Bakalos by a Similkameen valley woman who found it for sale at $125 at the Curiosity Shop, a Keremeos antique and collectable store on Seventh Avenue. “It was an unusual piece,” recalls store owner

According to the article, the annual event was hosted by the Port Alberni Athletic Club. The meet featured competition between athletes from Vancouver and Victoria. The Victoria contingent was being led by champion sprinter Hal Beasley who was running for the James Bay Athletic Club. An Olympian, Beasley competed in 100-metre, 200m and 400m races in the 1912 Olympic Games. The athletes were vying for some coveted trophies— including the challenge trophy offered by the Alberni Land Commission. The cup is a replica of the one given by the King of England to the Royal Yacht Club. The trophy was presented to the athlete who scored the largest number of points at the Port Alberni meet. Athletic Association member Bill Andrews drove to Penticton earlier this year to repatriate the piece of history. The cup remains tucked away, but future plans call for it to be enshrined at the athletic hall in Port Alberni. -With files from Wawmeesh G. Hamilton, Alberni Valley News

Quilters Under the “K” held their annual wrap up meeting on April 28, during which they presented a quilt to Marlene Mysel of Cawston. Marlene was victim of a structure fire last November in Cawston which resulted in the loss of most of her possessions. The club decided to dedicate their communal project to Mysel.

ALLERGIES TO MEDICATIONS
BIG BREAKFAST FOR WEIGHT LOSS By Leslie Beck
Research has shown that skipping breakfast is a bad idea, since eating in the morning is most important for an optimal metabolism and preventing abdominal obesity. A new study suggests that the morning meal should be the biggest meal of the day for losing weight. The study, published in the journal Obesity, compared two eating plans for overweight and obese women in the their mid-forties who had metabolic syndrome (a combination of risk factors that doubles the risk of heart attack and increases the likelihood of developing type 2 diabetes by fivefold). One group received half their daily calories at breakfast, followed by 36% at lunch and 14% at dinner. A second group received the opposite, taking in half their calories at dinner. Those eating half their calories at breakfast lost an average of 19.1 pounds compared to 7.9 pounds for the other group. The breakfast group also lost more inches off their waistline and showed a greater reduction in body-mass index. How do you put together a good breakfast? Leslie Beck, a registered dietitian, suggests the following: Protein (egg whites, cottage cheese, Greek and regular yogurt, low fat milk, turkey breast, smoked salmon and tofu) Healthy carbohydrates (grainy breads, steel cut and large flake oats, 100 per cent bran cereal, oat bran, apples, citrus fruit, grapes, pears, nuts, milk, yogurt and soy beverages) Fibre (look to include 5 to 10 grams of fibre such as 100 per cent whole-grain breads, breakfast cereals and whole fruit instead of juice) Interestingly, having a small sweet item at breakfast e.g., a square of dark chocolate, a cookie or candy has been shown to cut sweet cravings later in the day. For a light dinner, Beck suggests 3 to 4 ounces of low fat protein (chicken or turkey breast, lean meat, egg whites or firm tofu) and plenty of vegetables instead of starchy foods.

Allergies to medications can be a serious issue. The symptoms for an allergy to penicillin-like drugs can range from a mild rash to very severe breathing problems. If you have a known drug allergy, make sure you tell your pharmacist and doctor. Many people see doctors in a walk-in clinic or hospital setting so it’s important to share your allergy information with them.
Some people use transdermal patches on the skin as a drug delivery system. There are patches for estrogen, pain drugs and nicotine replacement for quitting smoking. There is some evidence that exposing these patches to heat can release more drug into the body causing side effects. If you use these medication patches, use caution with electric blankets, hot tubs, saunas, heat lamps or hot water bottles.
LOSING WEIGHT MAY HELP
Losing weight has many advantages. It could help people who “leak” urine. Urinary incontinence can be embarrassing and cause emotional stress. Losing weight just might help this situation.
INTERNET MEDICAL ADVICE
The internet can be a free-for-all when it comes to medical advice. It’s important to know whether the advice is reliable or not. If you have a concern about medication or a health treatment seen on the web, you can rely on our pharmacist staff to help you determine the validity of the advice. Our pharmacists’ primary role is to provide you with accurate information about your medications and matters pertaining to your health. Don’t hesitate to use them as a reliable information source.
