Partners Ed Vermette and Brent McClelland proudly introduce the smoking gun pepper co., and their new product available at Doug’s Homestead, located on Hwy 3. Three flavours of gourmet peppercorns were released for sale on Friday, May 16.

Smokin’ hot product hits market Lisa Carleton lisa@similkameenspotlight.com

Did you know that there is an item in your kitchen considered today to be a “common staple” that once was worth its weight in gold? Peppercorns, during the Middle Ages, were used as payment for rent, debts and were considered to be one of five essential luxuries, including African ivory, Chinese silk, German amber and Arabian incense in which foreign trade with the Roman Empire was based upon. Pepper is also known for it’s medicinal and health benefits. World-wide, it is prized as a flavour enhancer and still accounts for one-fourth of the worlds spice trade.

Local entrepreneur, Ed Vermette, is learning just how valued this spice really is. Ed was given a bag of bourbon-smoked peppercorns to try last year and as the old saying goes….the rest is history. “I couldn’t really taste a big difference and I thought I could do better,” explained Vermette. “So I went out into my back yard in the middle of winter with my Little Chief Smoker… and I smoked for days and days until I got it. Gave it out to my family and friends and they loved it.” He’s been experimenting and giving out samples since November of 2013. The “it” of which he speaks is a full-flavoured peppercorn. An idea born of three facets of cooking that many people use…pepper, smoke and alcohol.

Signing bonus offered for teacher deal Tom Fletcher Black Press

VICTORIA – The B.C. government is offering teachers an undisclosed signing bonus and reducing its proposed contract length from 10 years to six. Education Minister Peter Fassbender said the details of the offer and the amount of the proposed bonus will be disclosed Friday when it is presented to the B.C. Teachers’ Federation by Peter Cameron, chief negotiator for the province’s 60 school districts. There was no indication of a change to Cameron’s latest general wage proposal, a 6.5 percent increase over six years. BCTF president Jim Iker termed that a “lowball offer” that B.C.’s 40,000 teachers would be unlikely to accept. Fassbender and Cameron have maintained that the government’s wage offer is consistent with settlements with other public sector employee groups. The new term length is a small modification of the earlier proposal, which was for a 10-year deal with wage negotiations to resume for the final four years. That proposal would have meant the BCTF couldn’t strike after six years if they didn’t accept the wage extension, because they would still be under contract. Iker said Thursday the 10-year term was never workable, and after 16 months of Premier Christy Clark’s promises, he’s pleased to see it off the table. “The government has put various offers on the table, but we’ve also been listening to the feedback,” Fassbender said.

Black Press

Peter Cameron, chief negotiator for the province’s 60 school districts.

“The premier and I have been talking and we are absolutely committed to long-term stability, to a decade of labour peace in our school system.” The latest BCTF proposal is for a four-year term with wage and cost of living increases Iker estimates at 13.25 percent over the term. Unions representing 47,000 health care workers announced Thursday they are recommending their members accept a five-year settlement that includes a 5.5 percent wage increase. Workers in hospitals, residential care facilities, emergency health services and supply and logistics will begin voting on the settlement next week. The BCTF began work-to-rule action in April, refusing supervision outside classrooms and communication with school management. A March strike vote gives the BCTF a mandate to begin rotating strikes at any time.

For-profit clinics attack Medicare in court, seek US-style system Contributed BC Health Coalition & Canadian Doctors for Medicare

it.

We risk losing Canadian Medicare as we know

Right now, there’s a legal attack before the courts that could turn Canada’s Medicare system into a US-style system. The attack is driven by Dr. Brian Day, owner of the Vancouver-based Cambie Surgery Centre, a for-profit surgical clinic known for unlawfully billing for medically-necessary care. The case is being called the most significant constitutional challenge in Canadian history. And it’s going to trial in BC Supreme Court in 2014. This challenge aims to do away with Medicare in Canada by striking down provincial health legislation that limits the for-profit delivery of medically necessary services, claiming that these rules violate the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. What does this mean for me and my family? If Dr. Day wins this case, we’ll lose the public health care system that we all rely on. Expensive private insurance will become the new norm, like in the United States where it costs the average family $16,000 a year. Most bankruptcies in the US are due to medical bills – we don’t want to see a system in Canada where we risk losing our homes or go deep in debt when we get sick or injured. Public wait times will also become longer, as doctors and nurses are drained from the public system to the for-profit system. Why it’s a national issue affecting everyone in Canada

Even though the case is in the BC Supreme Court, it threatens health care across Canada. Because of the constitutional nature of the case, if Dr. Day wins the challenge, the laws that protect our public health care system will crumble across the country. We have to make sure Dr. Day is defeated. In contrast to the aims of these for-profit clinics owners, Canadians don’t want US-style health care. Poll after poll show that the public favours investment and innovation in public health care to improve the system for everyone, not the expansion of for-profit health care that benefits only a very wealthy elite. Who’s fighting for our public health care system? The BC Health Coalition and Canadian Doctors for Medicare are interveners in this case. This means that we are participating directly in the litigation, and we’ll be standing up for Medicare in court. But we know that our participation in the case alone can’t ensure this legal attack is defeated. It’s going to take a huge public outcry to save Canadian Medicare.
 
It’s going to take talking to our governments, our local newspapers, and our family and friends to make very clear: we want a public health care system that works for all Canadians and this legal attack must be defeated.
  
This is going to be a big challenge, but we know that together we can win this case and ensure that Medicare is here for generations to come. To get involved and for more information, go to www.savemedicare.ca or contact the BC Health Coalition at adam@bchealthcoaltion.ca

the smoking gun pepper co., gourmet peppercorns: Three flavours are available now; Whiskey Jack, From the Vines (Shiraz) and Yo Ho Ho Rum. There are more on the way, but the partners are not letting them out just yet.

PEPPER - from page 1 Rosemary Doughty, a local who has tried the peppercorns praised, “It is excellent, you can grind it easily… rub it on steak. The smokey bourbon flavour brings anything you put it on to life - it’s exceptional.” Doughty has tried the Whiskey Jack Black Gourmet Peppercorns. It’s really delicious - If you love to cook you’re going to love this product,” she stated. Another of Vermette’s projects brought him and his now business partner together. Brent McClelland had heard about Ed Vermette and his projects and decided to give him a call to ask about apple crates, Ed’s current project. “He came to the house,” said Vermette, “I had a bunch of my other products out with the apple crates. He looked in one of the crates and saw one of my bags -(containing black peppercorns) First thing he did was grab one of the bags. He opened it and smelled it, he did that approximately 40 times…couldn’t stop smelling it. Fell in love with the product and said it was going to be a best seller.” After a bit of conversation between the two, McClelland left and told Veremtte he would contact him about the crates. The next day, he returned but did not want to talk about the crates—he wanted to talk pepper. McClelland had a few questions for Vermette and they discussed some solutions to make things work better (i.e. shorten time for production) as McClelland has a commercial kitchen at Doug’s Homestead. “I don’t know if it was 15 minutes and the words out of his mouth were something about a partnership — my hand went out and we shook immediately,” said Vermette. the smoking gun pepper co., was born and the official product release took place on May 16. Manufacturing and the first selling point takes place right at Doug’s Homestead - home of the famous pepperoni, beef, jerky and gourmet meats shop located at 6245 Hwy 3, between Princeton and Hedley. “We also have a place we’ll be selling it out of in Port Moody, looks like a place in Abbotsford and that’s just the beginning,” McClelland announced. “I probably wouldn’t have taken it anywhere except local restaurants and markets if I hadn’t

met Brent and Linette,” adds Vermette, “Their enthusiasm and partnership drives me to want to see it succeed.” Linette McClelland is the muscle in the partnership, say the two men. She is the bookkeeper, the boss and communicator and keeps them organized. Using their existing connections, Doug’s Homestead contacts, chefs, restaurants and people they know in general, the product is getting out into the public. Word-of-mouth and Facebook are getting it out there even further. A website is also currently under construction. Local photographer, Eva Pratico was enlisted to take marketing photos for the company. As she was known by Brent and family (she had done family portraits for them) they felt she was right for the job. Pratico captured the essence of the company perfectly and the logo was created. Vermette proclaims, “What we think we have is a product that nobody else has or has done. It’s unique in what we’re doing…the recipe and process are the whole thing, and thats about all we can say about the product.” “There is other pepper companies that do a similar product,” chimed in McClelland, “Some blend different seasonings, others re-smoke peppercorns—we’ve figured out to how get the whisky, bourbon and the wine into the actual peppercorn.” Three flavours are available now; Whiskey Jack, From the Vines (Shiraz) and Yo Ho Ho Rum. There are more on the way but the partners are not letting them out just yet. “We’re not telling, it’s a trade secret,” they teased. “There are endless possibilities for what we can do…. we don’t have to stop,” beamed Vermette. “Things are going up,” says McClelland. Vermette adds, “Yes, up. We’re hoping for a longterm thing and lot of growth. This is a perfect connection and it’s exciting.” Stop in at Doug’s Homestead for a gourmet meat treat and to get your choice of smoking gun peppercorns. They are open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., daily. To keep up with the smoking gun pepper co., like them on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Smoking-Gun-PepperCo/646162622141845 and watch for the website—coming soon.

B.C.’s new recycling rules a costly tax on consumers Guest Editorial Laura Jones

Environment Minister Mary Polak recently announced that many small businesses will be exempt from onerous new recycling rules set to come into effect this May. While it’s always better to have fewer businesses affected by dumb rules, the minister’s announcement doesn’t change the fact that the new recycling plan delivers no demonstrated environmental benefit while increasing prices to consumers and costs to the many businesses of all sizes that will still be affected. The government’s announcement is the policy equivalent of putting lipstick on a pig. The province’s new approach to recycling should be abandoned. Here are 10 reasons why: 1) The new recycling rules add enormous costs to businesses and put a hidden tax on consumers for no environmental benefit over our existing (and very functional) blue-box programs. The new program is estimated to cost more than $100 million just to run. This does not include the huge cost of compliance. 2) The new recycling plan grants monopoly taxing and regulating power to an arms-length group (MultiMaterial B.C.) that has no real accountability to anyone. 3) B.C. recycling policy should be made in B.C. This recycling policy is generated by and for a small board of Toronto-based multinational corporations. 4) The new recycling rules are so complicated that there is massive confusion regarding who is affected and how to comply. Businesses are being advised to check with their regulatory affairs and finance departments. For most small business owners, this means checking with themselves. 5) The new rules never would have passed the government’s own regulatory reform checklist because the costs aren’t justified and the program is too complicated to be easily understood. 6) The new rules are not small-business friendly. Some small businesses are even being bullied by big businesses to comply. One supermarket told their small-business suppliers that they have to comply with the new rules and that the supermarket will not accept any price increases to make up for the additional compliance costs. 7) Community newspapers will have a very hard time absorbing the additional costs. Some papers have closed, and others are sure to follow if the program goes forward. 8) The economic viability of existing recycling depots in small towns across the province is threatened. These depots provide local jobs and many have been on the front lines of helping promote environmental objectives in their municipalities for over a decade. 9) The rules are ostensibly about reducing packaging but there are no direct incentives to reduce packaging in the program. 10) The public and small businesses were never properly consulted about abandoning the existing bluebox programs and replacing them with a program run by an unaccountable board of big businesses. It’s a bit of a head-scratcher as to why a government that has championed the importance of a strong economy based on B.C. priorities would go forward with wasteful, destructive policy designed by Toronto big business. The only good news is that it’s not too late to reconsider. Laura Jones is executive vice -president of the Canadian Federation of Independent Business.

During the regular meeting of Council on April 7, 2014, Mayor Frank Armitage officially proclaimed May 18 to 24, 2014 as Public Works Week in the Town of Princeton. The official proclamation; “WHEREAS: public works infrastructure, facilities and services are vital to the health, safety and well-being of the residents of Princeton, BC; and WHEREAS: such facilities and services could not be provided without the dedicated efforts of public works professionals, engineers and administrator who are responsible for building, operating and maintaining the public works systems that serve our citizens; and WHEREAS: the Public Works Association instituted Public Works Week as a public education campaign to inform communities and their leaders on the importance of our nation’s public infrastructure and public works services; and WHEREAS: it is in the public interest of citizens and civic leaders to gain knowledge of the public works needs and programs of their respective communities; WHEREAS: Public Works Week also recognizes the contributions of public works professionals.” In celebration of Public Works Week, the Similkameen Spotlight is pleased to present this focus on our public works employees and the work they do for the community of Princeton. “We look after the operation and maintenance of most of the town’s functions and services,” explains Kevin Huey, Director of Infrastructure and Parks for the Town of Princeton. A crew of eight working forty plus hours a week at times manage and maintain services including: the water service, storm drains, wastewater collection and treatment, road and sidewalk construction and maintenance as well as the maintenance and care of the Princeton Cemetery. The crew are also responsible for the maintenance of all Town of Princeton owned properties, buildings and facilities including: Princeton Centennial Pool, the municipal campground, the Princeton Airport, town office, parks and playgrounds. As part of their employment, crew members also travel to take training courses to upgrade their skills in order to perform their duties. In fact, Britt Fraser has just returned from a week-long Wastewater Management Course.

Koopmans update Kristi Patton Western News Staff

A trial date has been set in the double-murder that occurred in Princeton last year. John Ike Koopmans, 49 at the time of this arrest on March 31, 2013, is charged with two counts of murder and a single count of attempted murder. A five-week trial has been scheduled to begin on Feb. 16, 2015. Koopmans is alleged to have shot and killed Robert Keith Wharton, 44, and Rosemary Fox, 32 and injured another man at a property on Old Hedley Road in Princeton on March 30, 2013. In February Koopmans appeared in front of a provincial court judge in Penticton for a preliminary inquiry. Wearing glasses and a long goatee, he sat silent listening to witnesses and appeared to be taking notes while seated in the prisoners’ dock. He has been in custody since his arrest. In the days that followed the shootings, RCMP said Koopmans and the shooting victims all lived in the Princeton area and were known to each other.

Local photographer, Susan Jakubec found this creature in her garden on May 14. She posted the photo to her Facebook page, Susan Jakubec Photography and within a few hours it received over 1,200 views! A gentleman from the BC Royal Museum contacted Susan to let her know that the spider is a “tarantuloid”– a female of the “folding-door” spider genus Antrodiaetus, and is most likely the species Antrodiaetus hageni. None identified from Princeton before. “Fang Face” as named by Susan’s son is now at the BC Royal Museum and thankfully, not in her garden. Thanks for sharing the photos Susan.

Princeton Arts Council receives grant The Princeton Arts Council is thankful to have received a $14,000 grant from the B.C. Community Arts Council (division of the BC Ministry of Community, Sport and Cultural Development) through the provincial funding provided to support arts in the 2013-14 fiscal year. Three components are required for successful applicants: funds matched to local government support, a formula based on community size and isolation and an achievement award based on success in programming for

arts and cultural events in the community. The Princeton Cultural Plan, Spirit Festival and the Tree of Life mosaic mural were the projects completed that earned the local Arts Council permission to apply for annual operating funds through the grant. This funding enables the Princeton Arts Council to sustain the ongoing activities within the community including The Crimson Tine Players, Concert Series and the Sunflower Gallery.

Spotlight on Smiles

Thumbs Up/Down Thumbs up to the safe drivers on the highway and to the extra presence of the RCMP this past weekend. Princeton Highway Rescue is happy to report they had no accidents to attend to! Thumbs up to the Princeton Racing Days Association for working to provide events to make June 28 and 29 a funfilled weekend for everyone. Looks like it will be a fantastic weekend!

The Hunt family from Mission, B.C. enjoyed a gold panning experience at the Hedley Museum during Stamp Mill Day celebrations. The family was on their way to Castlegar over the holiday weekend and appreciated the fun stop!

If you have a thumbs up/down or want to be our Smile of the Week, give us a call at 250-295-3535 or drop by the Spotlight at 282 Bridge Street.

PINEAPPLE FRIED RICE

4

Serves 4 to 6 as a side

1 2 1 2

whole pineapple large eggs teaspoon salt, divided tablespoons high-heat cooking oil, divided 1 garlic clove, minced 1 small shallot, finely sliced 1 fresh hot red or green chili, preferably Thai (deseeded if you prefer less heat), finely sliced 3 cups cooked and chilled Thai jasmine rice 2 tablespoons fish sauce 1 tablespoon soy sauce 1 cup cubed cooked chicken breast 1 cup cubed cooked shrimp 1/2 cup fresh or thawed frozen peas 4 tablespoons finely chopped fresh coriander leaves (cilantro), plus more for garnish

1. Cut the pineapple in half lengthwise, and cut the fruit from the middle, leaving shell halves intact. Cut out the eyes and core. Set the shell halves aside. Dice the fruit. Dry the diced pineapple with paper towels and set aside. 2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, 1/2 teaspoon of the salt and the pinch of pepper.

CAPRICORN: A rush of activity fills your calendar and keeps your phone ringing off the hook, Capricorn. Your challenge will be separating the pressing events from others. AQUARIUS: Aquarius, paperwork has built up and requires more time than you had originally planned. There is no way to avoid this task, but a helper can make it move more quickly. PISCES: Moderation is your mantra for the week, Pisces. Do not let the pendulum swing too far in either direction. ARIES: Aries, your thoughts are distant right now, almost as if you’re living in a fantasy world. This is creatively beneficial but not so helpful for practical tasks. TAURUS: Taurus, if you’re not careful, you could find yourself debating family and friends this week. Instead, try to sit back and listen rather than fostering debate. GEMINI: Gemini, a realization about what is really important to you instills a renewed sense of confidence this week. You will be focused on important things. CANCER: Cancer, if your finances seem like they are in a state of upheaval, it could be because you have not looked at everything in black and white just yet. Make some changes. LEO: You come on too strong sometimes, Leo. Those who know you best can handle this approach, but you can scare off potential new friends if you do not ease up. VIRGO: Be patient and do not demand too much of yourself during the next few days, Virgo. You need to keep your workload light; otherwise, you may get easily overwhelmed. LIBRA: This is a time to discover the value of others, Libra. A willingness to try new things and delegate some responsibilities will free up your calendar. SCORPIO: Certain personalities don’t always click, Scorpio. Don’t feel the need to overcompensate for a strained relationship. Spend more time with those with whom you connect. SAGITTARIUS: Flexible thinking is key, Sagittarius, especially as you face a few new challenges this week. There are some opportunities to reconnect with family later in the week.

3. Heat half of the oil in a wok or large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook eggs, stirring, until set but still moist. Transfer eggs to a plate. Wash and thoroughly dry the wok or skillet. 4. Heat the remaining oil over medium-high heat. Add the garlic, shallots and chili, and stir-fry until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the rice and stir-fry for 2 minutes. Add the fish sauce, soy sauce, chicken, shrimp, peas, and the remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and stir-fry for 2 to 3 minutes. Add the reserved eggs, pineapple, fresh corian-

der leaves, and mint; stir-fry for 30 seconds. 5. Scoop the fried rice into the pineapple shells and garnish with fresh coriander leaves. Serve immediately. Note: If you dice the pineapple ahead of time, rinse the pineapple shells with boiling water and dry with paper towels before serving. PC144091

IZARD (nee HICKS) JANET, 1949 - 2014:

On 6 May 2014, Janet Izard, passed away peacefully at Toronto General Hospital with her family present. For 4 months, she had valiantly battled infections following her liver transplant. We are very grateful to the dedication & care of the ICU staff at TGH throughout her time there. Jan is survived by her husband, John Izard, and two sons, Roger (Sabrina) and Douglas (Clare) and four grandchildren (Luke, Nathan, Kara and Joshua). She is also survived by her brother, Roger (Linda) Hicks and her nephew Bruce Hicks and her niece, Emily (Scott) Lindsay. She was born in Princeton, B.C. and graduated from UBC with a teaching degree. Her parents were Dr. Al Hicks and Eleanor Hicks. Jan’s focus was to help others. She was “born with her hand up” and actively volunteered for many groups during her 25 years in Brampton Ontario. She was a passionate gardener, golfer and dog lover. Donations can be made in her name to “Crohn’s & Colitis Canada” and we would like everyone to consider registering to become an organ donor to save others. There will be a “Celebration of Life” Service for Jan on next Saturday, 17 May, at 2:00 pm at St. Paul’s United Church in Brampton, ON. Our family is extremely grateful to the support we received from so many people during her illness.
