By Steve Arstad news@keremeosreview.com Joe Reichert was born in Humbolt, Saskatchewan, in 1935. He and his family moved to Keremeos in 1945 where they purchased an orchard. Joe studied mechanics, helped on the farm and eventually found work at Tulameen Motors in Princeton. Two years later, he found himself becoming restless. Even back in those days, there were some good opportunities to make decent money working the oil rigs; Joe decided to move on to greener pastures, and headed north to Fort St. John and Alberta, where he found profitable, steady employment for several years. In 1959, personal tragedy struck when Joe was working a rig with several other men. Working his third shift on the rig with a couple of regular rig workers absent, Joe was helping to balance a sling load of pipe when the sling, which hadn’t been properly set, slipped. The pipes tilted, and Joe was catapulted into the air. Had he not been wearing a hard hat, his life quite probably would have ended there. As a result of the accident, however, he became a quadriplegic. There is a common saying in popular use nowadays that says “what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.” Joe’s life from this point on is perhaps an excellent example of that quote. Joe spent the following year in the Royal Alexandria Hospital in Edmonton, followed by another year at the University Hospital. Recovering in the extended care unit, Joe found himself getting bored. He immersed hinself in volunteer work, becoming president of the fledgling paralympic association. “He was one of the first on board,” re-

members his widow, Rejeanne (Reggie), “he helped to initiate the wheelchair athletes movement and the Paraplegic Sports Association in Edmonton.” Joe became a paralympic athlete in his own right, taking on the sports of riflery, archery, javelin, shot put and table tennis. “He represented Canada at the Pan Am Wheelchair Games ” recalled Reggie, “he won two gold medals for archery.” Joe also participated in the American Wheelchair Games. A cabinet in the dining room of Joe and Reggie’s home displays the many pieces of hardware won by him over the years. Alongside is a trophy cup presented to him by the City of Edmonton for winning the Canadian Paralympic Sport Championship in 1969, and 1972 through 1975. “Those activities gave him a reason to carry on,” said Reggie, “between the paralympic games and his volunteer Joe Reichert was a big part of the Keremeos Rodeo for more than three and a half work, decades.

The Reichert family farm was sold off, with the siblings each getting a share. Joe invested his portion in property on Eleventh Avenue, keeping two lots for his own use. It wasn’t long before he became restless once again. Joining the Elks in the spring of 1982, he has been involved in the Keremeos Elks Rodeo every year since then. In the early years, he held the position of raffle chair. “The raffle was a big event at the time,” said Reggie. “He eventually became rodeo secretary, then secretary - treasurer. “He and former rodeo chair David Barker used to work very well together,” she said. Joe also volunteered with the Lower Similka-

The treatments were unsuccessful, however, and on May 2, Joe passed away. “He filled all the key roles in the Elks over the years,” said Keremeos Elks Vice President Mac Watson.

New pub style restaurant opening on Seventh Avenue

By Steve Arstad news@keremeosreview.com

Keremeos’ newest eatery is sheduled to open May 16, just in time for lunch. The Wrong Turn Tavern is a new restaurant - pub style lounge opening in the former Pasta Trading Post building. Proprietor Liza Sanders was busy last week tying up lose ends and trying to complete renovations before opening day, which coincides with the start of Keremeos Rodeo weekend. “For the first couple of weeks in May I’ll be flying by the seat of my pants,” she laughed. “But I’m planning to have daily specials, using as much locally produced food, wine, and beer that I can.” Sanders plans to be open for lunch and dinner, with a Sunday champagne brunch starting in June. She’s also planning “Taco Tuesdays” - an evening of authentic Mexican food, with the accent on “authentic.” There will also be evening entertainment

Physician group comes together to help local children connect to a family physician Contributed Family physicians in the communities of Oliver, Osoyoos and Okanagan Falls have come together to help children and their immediate families in these three communities gain access to a family physician. “There are more than 1,500 children under the age of 19 in our three communities that at many points in their lives have or will need access to primary healthcare” explains Dr. Steve Evans, a local doctor in Oliver and a member of the South Okanagan Similkameen Division of Family Practice. “We know that a number of these children do not have a family doctor, which can result in unnecessary visits to the emergency room, or preventable health issues.” Parents or guardians of a child in need of a family doctor, and living in the communities of Oliver, Osoyoos and Okanagan Falls, can call Lorri Depourcq at the South Okanagan General Hospital (250-4985051) to make a request. The child will then be connected to one of the area family

doctors who is accepting new patients on a rotational system. The SOS Division is one of 33 Divisions of Family Practice in B.C. Funded by a joint committee of the government of B.C. and Doctors of B.C., Divisions are not-forprofit community based groups of family physicians working together to achieve common health care goals. “We are thrilled that local communities within our region are taking on an initiative such as this to connect children in need to family doctors” says Dr. Murali Venkataraman, physician lead and vicechair of the SOS Division. “We will continue to do whatever we can to support our colleagues in creating local solutions to improving access to primary healthcare”. This local project is part of the SOS Division’s contribution to the province wide A GP for Me initiative also funded by the government of B.C. and the Doctors of B.C. to help British Columbians without a doctor to find one, and to strengthen capacity in the primary care system.

Keremeos councillors attend local government convention Upcoming trends and matters of municipal interest discussed in Penticton conference By Steve Arstad news@keremeosreview.com Keremeos Councillors Gary Thielmann and Arlene Arlow attended the Southern Interior Local Government Association conference held in Penticton April 29 to May 2. The councillors provided council with summary reports of their convention participation. Councillor Thielmann reported Lee Mossman, President of CUPE 338 Kelowna, stated small communities could experience a positive economic impact if everyone spent just 10 per cent more in their communities. Bryan Yu, and Economist with Central Credit Union told convention-goers to expect stable interest rates for another two to four years. He also predicted relatively stable house prices until 2018. Wealthy prairie dwellers will ramp up buying Okanagan and Similkameen real

estate as the U.S. dollar rises with respect to the Canadian dollar. Thielmann reported Telus has undergone rapid expansion over the past five years and has created many job opportunities. Telus General Manager Steve Jenkins expects the company to make big inroads into home health monitoring. Thielmann also reported an update regarding local election reform from Parliamentary Secretary for Ministry of Community, Sport and Cultural Development Linda Reimer, who discussed election reforms involving finances, election advertising, disclosure statements and compliance and enforcement. Thielmann participated in presentations discussing Cross Laminated Timber, West Jet business philosophy, and the South Okanagan Brain Injury Society. Thielmann also reported that a late resolution to have SILGA request the province to ensure full and robust consultation in the implementation of Multi Materials BC to ensure financial fairness to constituents and maximize diversion rates carried. Coucillor Arlow listened to a discussion regarding volunteer fire departments in B.C. She reported volunteer fire departments face

major issues including declining volunteerism, increasing regulations, increasingly stringent fire underwriters’ rules and regulations, finances and higher public expectations to provide related services. Arlow reported a common theme at the convention was difficulty amongst southern interior communities in finding and keeping doctors. Arlow also reported 20 resolutions out of 24 were passed at the conference. The passing resolutions included: - mine permit applicants to refer to Official Community Plans before receiving permit approval. - better federal transport regulations for hazardous materials. - regulations of invasive species. - reversal of Insurance Corporation of BC’s recent decsion not to fund repairs of municipal infrastructure damaged in motor vehicle accidents. - a request to allow secondary homes on agricultural land. - an increase in resources for the Agricultural Land Commission. - better quality paint for highway lines. - two requests to exclude medical marijuana operations from farm designations.

The Review

Publisher: Don Kendall 605 7th Avenue, Box 130, Keremeos, B.C. V0X 1N0

Editorial Joe Reichert was a community leader Keremeos lost a leading citizen and a stalwart supporter of the community with the passing of Joe Reichert on May 2. Joe was actively involved in the local Elks Club and spearheaded the rodeo for more than three decades. He entertained policies that moved the town forward, demonstrating financial acumen, advocating local support and providing boosterism in everything he did. But not too many people were aware of Joe’s contribution to the community - a contribution spanning almost 35 years, because Joe was seldom out front and centre. Joe had limited mobility, for he was a quadriplegic. He had been since 1959, after being injured in an industrial accident. Joe was, in his time, a multi-medal paralympic competitor. He raised a family, loved and was loved by his grandchhildren and great grandchildren, and, largely in the background of village activties performed the work of two volunteers for many years, in his contributions to the Elks flagship event, the Keremeos Rodeo. Not bad for a guy who had been confined to a wheelchair for most of his life. Joe’s passing has left a legacy of community commitment and work ethic that this community may never see again.We believe his true value as a citizen of the village has not yet been fully felt, but in the coming weeks and months a true accounting of the man’s abilities will be revealed Joe Reichert was also proof that community leadership isn’t always about making headlines. It can also be about working hard, working faithfully, working silently and working single mindedly to be a contributing member of the community. Perhaps of all the medals Joe had achieved for his sporting activities, it is this legacy that is most deserving of a “gold medal” recognition.

Polak says province won’t bend to MMBC holdouts By Jeff Nagel Black Press Several agricultural businesses are vowing to defy Multi Material BC and refuse to pay into the new package recycling system. Kelvin McCulloch, CEO of the Buckerfield’s chain of farm supply stores, said his firm and other mainly garden suppliers will try to develop their own stewardship program to collect and recycle their packaging in compliance with provincial government regulation. He said he’s abandoned hope the government might freeze the MMBC system, set to take effect May 19, and added a court challenge is one option if setting up a separate program proves unworkable. Several letters sent by firms including Eddi’s Wholesale Garden Supplies, Cinnabar Valley Farms and Cobs Breads have gone to government serving notice they won’t comply.

McCulloch maintains MMBC is an illegitimate, unaccountable “monopoly” that businesses have been “coerced” by the province to join because there’s no real alternative. Higher fees than are charged by a similar package-and-paper recycling scheme in Ontario is a key complaint. But Environment Minister Mary Polak said misinformation about the program is rampant in the business community and much of it is coming from McCulloch. “He refuses to listen to the information provided him,” she said, adding Buckerfield’s is likely largely exempt from MMBC fees because most of its products go to farms, not consumers. Likewise, she said, many other businesses wrongly believe their fees will be much higher than is the case, due to either low flat fees or exemptions for all but the largest generators of packaging. The decision to make

companies whose packaging enters the waste stream responsible for the costs of handling it was a national agreement with other environment ministers, she said. Those who want to go their own way can still pursue an alternative stewardship system, Polak said, adding breweries are advancing their own system and talks are also underway with the newspaper industry. Polak said MMBC can’t be subject to provincial audits – as McCulloch has demanded – because it is not an arm of government, but is regulated and accountable as a non-profit. She said organizations representing dairy farms, landscaping and nursery firms, as well as the B.C. Agriculture Council, are now part of an MMBC advisory council. As for demands for a freeze on the program, Polak said that’s not possible. “We are way too far down the road to be pausing it,” she said.

Doing so would stop the rollout of curbside blue box pickup to smaller communities that haven’t had it before, throw into chaos collection arrangements in cities where MMBC is set to take over and block the flow of MMBC payments to most municipalities that will continue as contractors under the new system, she said. “If suddenly you told the Capital Regional District they’re going to have to find $4.8 million, I don’t think anyone would find that very acceptable.” Asked if businesses that don’t pay into MMBC will soon face provincially imposed fines, Polak said enforcement may vary according to how much waste is generated. “Tim Horton’s is part of the program,” she said. “If they hadn’t signed on maybe there’s a more serious discussion about penalties than if you’re dealing with a medium-sized flower grower or something like that.”

Hedley resident questions highways policy with respect to slide areas To the Editor: An open letter to the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure Dear Minister, I am writing to clear up some very confusing statements being made in regard to where our highways are located and how the maintenance system functions. A few months back we had a rock slide on Highway 3, 9 kilometres west of Keremeos which closed the road for several days. Two lanes of the highway reopened after temporary safety measures were taken. It is being reported that a final cleanup cannot take place until engineers provide their stamp of approval that the clean up area is safe for workers. It is also being rumored that no engineer would

ever give this approval because of the liabilities attached to doing so. Pleaser help me understand how it is safe for vehicles to travel through this area yet unsafe for clean up work to be performed. I have lived in this area for more than seventy years and have seen rock slides in that area on several occasions as well as many other locations Minister of Transportation & Infrastructure and never have I observed clean up being delayed for the logic described above. Each year the fall rains seep into the rock faces above our highways and then the frost from cold weather freezes the collected water dislodging the rock and when the thaw arrives we have rock slides. This is a natural process that is repeated every year with the level of moisture and frost determining the severity of the slides.

Bridge players at the senior’s centre mean no disrespect To the Editor: Bridge is a very interesting card game. It is not a game that can be learned in one session. Some of the best players in the world find the game is still a challenge after 30 or 40 years. There are some very good players at the local

senior’s centre. People who have never played bridge are not qualified to make judgements. Sometimes a player may leave his chair if he is in the dummy position. If a stranger tries to claim the empty chair, he will be told that he can’t sit

there because someone is coming back. He may feel not welcome, which is not really true, but it should be explained. If you have a good memory and are lucky at cards, you may enjoy a game of bridge. L.Lamb, Keremeos

Yesterday a second slide occurred beside this one causing a second road closure and the road was reopened this morning. Any area where a highway travels below rock faces is subject to this same condition which we have lived with since construction of these roads. What has changed that now determines the process, who is liable in the event someone gets hurt in these areas where slides occur, and does the logic described mean that the highways in B.C. will all have to be moved away from mountain terrain? It may be time for a re-think on what actually makes good sense in these regards, I don’t believe you need to be an engineer to understand that there is more politics than responsible action going on here. Your response will be greatly appreciated. Regards, Darryl R. Brewer

Congratulations on Similkameen tourist guide To the Editor: Just wanted to congratulate you all on a terrific edition of the Similkameen Valley Travel Guide. Informative, clear and precise to the point that the “valley” is a true gem, one that I have loved for many years. And a spectacular river runs through to top it off! As a young man, whilst in university in Victoria, I would travel through Keremeos on my way to my mining job of a particular summer.

And I always stopped in Keremeos for a quick bite and always a chat with a local person from the village. I also said then that one day, in my later years, I would have a little cabin on the river. I hope the valley has a great summer and I urge all residents to look after their “gem.” It is a very fine place! Kind regards, Robin Blencoe, Essex Ontario

Foundation fund raiser proves to be a successful evening the Cawston Players and Ian Hutton, along with great food prepared by the Branding Iron Restaurant team of Suzanne Siemens and Chef Karl Schorb and a silent auction which made the event a success. “It is the support of those local businesses who donated items for our silent auction that made this night a huge success,” said Sarah Trudeau, Regional Development Coordinator, Community Foundation of the South Okanagan Similkameen. “All of the money raised from this event goes directly into the Lower Similkameen Community Fund- which supports local projects and programs in the area,” added Trudeau.

By Steve Arstad news@keremeosreview.com The Community Foundation of the South Okanagan Similkameen reported the Lower Similkameen Fundraising Dinner to be a roaring success last Saturday, May 3, raising more than $2,000 for the local Community Fund. The Lower Similkameen Community Committee held its first fundraising dinner at the Branding Iron Bar and Grill, with all funds raised going to support the Lower Similkameen Community Fund. The night included entertainment by Destin Lydiatt,

Hedley’s “Foundation” Years By Art Martens livingsignificantly.ca In 1973 Len and Jean Roberts, founders of the One Way Adventure Foundation, began offering camping, cycling and canoeing expeditions. Several provincial probation offices contracted with them to work with youths on probation. Soon recalcitrant adolescent clients were being dropped off at the Roberts home in Surrey. With these often rowdy youths assembling in their back yard each morning, anxious neighbours across the street peeked through slits in closed curtains, concerned about their property and personal safety. Len quickly realized these adolescents required a more tranquil, secure setting. When the Gold House and Colonial Inn, at that time derelict properties on the outskirts of Hedley, became available, he was able to acquire them. Just prior to the purchase, the Inn was seriously vandalized. One of the young vandals was placed in the Foundation’s Surrey program for other unlawful activities. Wanting to establish a tough guy image, he foolishly boasted to Len about his W ATM NO LE! B AVAILA

part in the vandalism. Len immediately sent him to Hedley to help staff clean up and make repairs. The Hedley setting now became the hub of foundation activities. Youths were assigned to work projects such as fence mending, building trails, cutting grass etc. In time there were food prep, mechanics, retail and riding courses. Rigorous back packing and canoeing expeditions, skiing, rock climbing and rappelling were added to the mix. An educational component was also provided. Although not charismatic in the usual sense, Len was able to convey his vision, purpose and methods in a manner that appealed to individuals eager to devote their lives to a significant purpose. Several youths returned after graduating from the program. They completed a one year training course, and were then taken on as staff. Possibly it was the organization’s success and acquisition of neglected buildings that aroused the ire of a small cadre of elderly men in Hedley. In 1986 they complained to the two major Vancouver dailies that the OWAF was a cult. Always watchful for the dramatic, one reporter managed to make the allega-

tion a front page story, based entirely on unproven speculation. A government inspection team, sombre faced men in dark suits, quickly descended on Hedley. They spent a week meticulously sifting through financial records and interviewing youths, staff and residents. In the end they completely exonerated the foundation. In the early 1990’s, Len reluctantly folded the organization when the government moved from a regional to a community model. Now, some 20 years later, we might ask if the foundation made a real difference. In response to this question, a resident said, “if it wasn’t for the foundation, some of our larger structures would not have survived. They did major upgrades on neglected buildings.” The presence of young staff, usually carrying two-way radios, helped seniors feel more secure. Also, there was no garbage collection and one program provided this service for staff, seniors and the disabled. Finding someone to replace a door or toilet, or fix a leaky tap was often difficult. The OWAF filled this need. Certainly, the most important contribution lay in preparing youths to return to their community more able to live productive lives. Currently there is growing curiosity concerning this almost forgotten aspect of Hedley history.

Raising the roof on the Riverbed Bistro Photos by Steve Arstad

Work began this past week on reconstruction of the Riverbed Bistro in Keremeos. The restaurant suffered extensive damage to its second storey living quarters in a fire that took place on February 1. Earlier this week a work crew stripped the roof in preparation for a crane which arrived on site Tuesday. The existing roof, which suffered structural damage in the fire, was removed in three sections while trusses were constructed in the restaurant parking lot. The crane then lifted those pieces onto the roof. “We’re seeing how long it’s going to take,” said Bistro owner Paul Uppal in answer to whether the restaurant will be opening this summer or not. “We’re probably looking at another one or two months to complete repairs to the building.”

Regional district board considers funding request

Conservation group seeks funding from regional district for conservation fund By Steve Arstad news@keremeosreview.com Bryn White, Program Manager for the South Okanagan Similkameen Conservation Program, spoke to Regional District Okanagan Similkameen Board of Directors at the May 8 meeting in Penticton. White provided an update to the board regarding the biodiversity strategy (Keeping Nature in our Future), which was initiated between the SOSCP and the RDOS and other partners in 2010. The board is not legally bound to the Keeping Nature in our Future document, as it is neither a plan nor a regulatory document, however, it is considered to be an informational guide of high priority, similar to the regional district’s Regional Growth Strategy. The board accepted the Keeping Nature document in September 2013, instructing staff to work with the SOSCP to begin implementation of the plan. Bryn told the board work was currently being undertaken to improve land use policy and regulations with RDOS staff through the inclusion of new information and mapping of environmentally sensitive areas. The information is being integrated into Official Community Plans in each electoral area. Biodiversity conservation strategies developed for each area are expected to protect environmental values using a common sense approach, at the same time providing flexibility and fairness to property owners and developers. Bryn also told the board investigation was currently underway to explore possible funding options to establish a local conservation fund.

The intention of the fund would be to provide financial support for activities that would protect valuable natural areas, as part of restoring and sustaining a healthy local environment. “Such a fund always has a sunset,” Bryn told the board, “at which time the board would make a decision whether or not to continue. “We’re looking for board support to establish a local conservation fund.” Regional districts and municipalities have the authority to establish and operate such funds as services, similar to fire protection or recreation. The fund could be financed through property, parcel local area service taxes or fees. Fund programs typically run 10 years. In answer to a question from the board, Bryn expressed uncertainty as to how much funding would be required or what mechanism for funding would be used. She cited examples of East Kootenay and Columbia Shuswap Regional Districts, who had levies of $20 per parcel for a similar fund. Cawston Director George Bush asked how the money would be used. Bryn said application of the funding was still open for discussion. “It could be tailored to the municipality,” she replied, “we could gauge the environment, see what support is out there.” Chief Administrative Officer Bill Newell recommended providing the board with an administrative report to establish benchmarks, describe what other municipalities were doing, and provide timelines. A report to the Planning and Development Committe will be forthcoming on the issue for further future discussion.

The second Community Conversation on Food Systems and Food Security took place in Hedley April 25 and 26 at the community library. Kent Mullinex, Director of Sustainable Food Systems for the Kwantlen Polytechnic University in Washington, was guest speaker on Friday, April 25, speaking to a group of 45 people representing 10 communities from Midway to Princeton. Many of those participating in the two day event felt it was imperative local leaders make food security a priority for their communities. Four local food leaders from the Similkameen formed a panel, each one discussing their work to provide safe, secure food in the Similkameen. Joe Dennis, Economic Development Coordinator for the Lower Similkameen Indian Band spoke about the band’s plans to create an 11 acre farm on land near Chopaka. Lee McFadyen, Kevin Klippenstien and Linda Edwards spoke about their work in agriculture, and the those who attended were also given suggestions as to how they could play a role in building local food security.

community Keremeos and District volunteer firefighters

Compensation comes from social aspects, “working with a good bunch of people” Bill Arnott has been on the Keremeos and District Volunteer Fire Department for 15 years. He’s served as a Captain in the department for 10 years. “It definitely helps to have an understanding wife,” he said of the time management issues faced by a volunteer, especially when in an administrative role. Arnott is in and out of the community through the week, so his availablility is limited through the week, like many of the department’s volunteers. “I’ve never really considered the financial aspects of it - I’m not in it for the money,” he said in regard to compensation. “I have fun doing it, I enjoy it,” he explained, “it’s the one thing I have time to do to help out in the community.” Arnott remembers two motor vehicle accidents as the worst emergency scenes he had ever participated in. Both took place early in his volunteer career. “I remember one accident near Standing Rock. The father of two kids was trying to make sure his kids were all right after the collision before he died himself.” Arnott also recalled an MVA near the cemetery that had nasty conseBill Arnott quences.

D’Arcy Bridgman is a 10 year veteran who occupies the role of Training Captain with the Keremeos and District Volunteer Fire Department. “(Former) Firefighter Doug MacLeod got me interested,” Bridgman said describing his original reason for joining. Bridgman was one of the earliest high school recruits, starting 15 years ago. The last three have seen him take on a captain’s role. “I like to help in the community. I lived in the Kootenays for a few years, and I really missed it,” Bridgman said. “This is a good group of people to be involved with socially, too.” Bridgman works out of the village much of the time, which limits his availablity for callouts. Still, he finds time to respond during the hours he is in the community. “Calls are exciting,” he admits, “I don’t want the pager to go off, but when it does, I’m ready to respond.” Bridgman finds the compensation adequate, echoing other members’ sentiments regarding financial compensation - “If you’re in it for money, it’s the wrong reason.” “I answer every call I can,” he said, “as far as inconvenience goes, in just about every situation you can name - I’ve been interupted by the D’Arcy Bridgman pager going off.”

Summer weather prediction calls for cool season for Central, Eastern Canada; dry in West AccuWeather is predicting cool and wet conditions to prevail in central and eastern Canada this summer, similar to the cool weather pattern that is dominating that part of the country so far this spring.

Residents in the Similkameen, however can rest easy, as the American weather service predicts a warmer, drier summer compared to normal for our region.

CLEAR YOUR SPACE, CLEAR YOUR MIND! By Linda Anderson

Organization is something we all struggle with. It seems that no matter how hard we try, disorganization creeps back again and again. So, why do we even bother getting organized in the first place? According to feng shui principles, clutter in any area of your life is a sign of stuck, stagnant energy. The more clutter you have, the more sluggish the energy becomes. If you have ever walked into a cluttered room, you have probably felt your energy drop dramatically. So much so that you may even avoid that room altogether and close the door so you don’t have to look at it! Coping with clutter is rarely easy and staying focused and motivated to get the job done can be one of the biggest challenges. Here are a few tips to help get you started and stay motivated when it all seems like too much! Set Achievable Goals. Pick one area to tackle at a time - this could be a shelf, a drawer, a countertop. Picking one task and completing it is much more rewarding than trying to tackle an entire room or office all at once. When you don’t finish something it makes it much harder to get started again the next time. Start with messes and clutter you see every day. Assign every item (or group of items) a home. It dramatically cuts down on the clutter of items left out “for now” or “until I find a place for it.” Use the One-In-One-Out Rule. Make it a general policy to get rid of one old thing for every new purchase. Work With Your Natural Tendencies. Observe what things pile up in your home or office and where they cluster then come up with a place nearby that becomes the official home where those things reside. It is easier to make the area look better with a basket or bin than to try and change a habit! Pick Favorites. If you have a favorite brand or item that you use frequently but four partially used items of another brand that didn’t measure up are sitting in your cupboard – give them away! Keep Only Things you Use or Love. Maintain your organized lifestyle with 30 minutes of upkeep each day Getting and staying organized is a lifestyle, not a crash diet. Start by making small changes and you will quickly see an improvement in your home or office space which directly affects how you feel about your life!

High pressure is expected to reign, in the Similkameen as well as other regions of B.C., however, with above-normal temperatures and less rainfall predicted for much of British Columbia this summer.

POISON IVY.................. Poison ivy: This skin problem is caused by brushing up against the plant which contains urushiol, an oily resin that causes painful itchy rashes of the exposed skin. Urushiol is found on the stem, leaves, and skin of the fruit of the plant. You can’t catch poison ivy from another person. You have to touch the resin. Treatment includes washing the area with cold water. Our pharmacists can help. SHINGLES & CHICKENPOX Shingles is a painful, blistering rash caused by the same virus that causes chickenpox. There is a vaccine for those that have this virus in their system due to childhood exposure to chickenpox. Its rate of effectiveness is 55%... pretty good odds to prevent the pain and discomfort of shingles. See your doctor about this. BREASTFEEDING IS GOOD Breastfeeding is good for the baby and the mother. Human breast milk contains over 300 ingredients. These include white blood cells, interferon, antibacterial and antiviral agents. Breast milk is good for the baby’s developing immune system. Taking medications while breastfeeding can be worrisome to new mothers. Our pharmacists will be happy to advise you about what’s safe and what isn’t.

Similkameen Valley Planning Society holds AGM, Bauer re-elected chair By Steve Arstad The Similkameen Valley Planning Society held their annual general meeting on May 7 at the Grist Mill. Re-elected to the the chair’s position this year was Keremeos Mayor Manfred Bauer. Regional District Okanagan Similkameen Director for Cawston George Bush will serve as vice-chair. The SVPS is working on a communications plan for both the regional tourism strategy and the watershed

study. The society hopes to increase public awareness regarding the newly revamped Similkameen tourism website and encourage further community buy-in. A plan is currently being formulated by former Communications Director for the RDOS, Andrew Stuckey, to better communicate the watershed study initiative to the public. It is expected he will present his plan at the next meeting. Plans for a multi-cultural event at the Grist Mill on Canada Day afternoon have been shelved after the

society learned University of BC principal investigator Susana Caxaj is developing a project called “Building a Sense of Belonging in the Similkameen.” Part of her project will involve a multi-cultural event at the Grist Mill in October. The society heard of a funding request during the meeting, agreeing to provide $100 from each jurisdiction - Area “G”, B”, and Keremeos - to the Keremeos Legion to assist in funding a First Responder appreciation dinner on June 25.
