Store owner/operator Marcello Garofalo and his wife Teresa are counting the days to when the new Canadian Tire store opens for business, tentatively on February 24. Approximately 35 employees, mostly from Oliver, have been hired. The shelving is now up and merchandising has begun.
New Canadian Tire almost ready for business Lyonel Doherty Oliver Chronicle It’s what Oliver has waited a long time for – a new employer with jobs to boost a tired economy. The Canadian Tire store at Southwinds Crossing is almost ready for business with a tentative opening date of February 24. And new owner/operator Marcello Garofalo is counting the days. “We’re part of the community now,” he told the Chronicle, with his wife Teresa by his side. The Garofalos recently moved to Oliver from Toronto with their two young children. Admittedly, it’s been a whirlwind of change for the family, but an exciting one.
Marcello has wanted to own his own Canadian Tire store for years (15 years to be exact), and he’ll never forget that phone call sealing the deal. “Really, are you sure?” he asked Canadian Tire headquarters. It just didn’t feel real. But it does now as he prepares for February 24 and the grand opening on April 28. A two-day job fair at Oliver WorkZone in December resulted in 210 people being interviewed for approximately 35 jobs. About 80 people were shortlisted before the ﬁnal selection was made. Marcello noted about 85 per cent of the people hired come from the Oliver area, while the remainder come from Osoyoos and Keremeos. “We had a lot of variety of skill sets at the job fair . . . it

was a good mix,” he said. Most of the employees are expected to begin working this week putting shelving together and merchandising the stock. About 98 per cent of the building’s construction phase is complete, so the big job now is getting ready for the stock. The retail ﬂoor space is 14,000 square feet, while the warehouse and garden centre are 5,000 square feet each. There are eight different departments, including general repair, home décor, housewares, sports and leisure, seasonal, gardening, automotive service, and parts. The automotive department will feature three, state-ofthe-art service bays, including one especially for RVs. Continued on Pg A2...

Canadian Tire store to open Feb. 24 Marcello said the building is classiﬁed as a “smart store” because of the way it’s laid out, which makes it easier to navigate and ﬁnd products. Also, staff will have quick Internet access to provide product information on the spot. In addition, the store is very energy conscious, Marcello pointed out. For example, it has installed sensors to ensure that lighting and water are used efﬁciently. The owner said his goal is to support the community as much as possible. “The main thing is creating new jobs in the area.” Marcello stated that Canadian Tire prides itself in supporting community events and various sports associations, such as minor hockey. The company has a program called “Jumpstart,”
Canadian Tire has literally been Marcello’s life. He started working for the company at age 15 as a part-time hardware clerk. After ﬁnishing school, he worked his way up the ladder, holding various positions including automotive supervisor and store manager. It was at Canadian Tire where he met his wife Teresa, who was working as a cashier. “I saw her and the fog started coming over me, and then the music started playing (just like in the movies).” How about that? Not only can you ﬁnd an oil ﬁlter at Canadian Tire, but a romance, too. For more information about the new store, call 250-498 TIRE.
RDOS in the process of researching water utility The RDOS is in the process of researching the Willowbrook Utilities water system before it makes a decision to take it over. Last week the RDOS board voted to apply for a restructure implementation grant to help it do the research.
The owner of Willowbrook Utilities recently sent a request to have the RDOS own and operate the water system in Area C. The utility serves approximately 500 residents and 77 parcels. RDOS subdivision supervisor S. Juch said the grant will fund a review of the water utility and

He noted if people request a particular product they don’t see on the shelf, he will order it. “I’d like to keep Oliver dollars in Oliver,” he said, noting this is the one goal he would like to work on with local retailers. Marcello said Oliver has a lot of potential and will reap the beneﬁts that Southwinds Crossing will bring. “I think it will encourage more business to come here and more people to settle in Oliver because of more accessibility to goods and stores.”

McIntyre Bluff is quite famous
Enjoy your meal from our view of McIntyre Bluff while dining fireside
McIntrye Bluff, Battle Bluff or its Indian name “N-Sh-Uh-Teet Qu”, is still probably the most famous landmark in the Okanagan. Everyone has their own version of the legend surrounding this imposing cliff. Generally it is called McIntyre Bluff after pioneer Pete McIntyre who settled on the land at the base of the bluff in 1892 and planted the ﬁrst small orchard in the area. Although at the time there was no irrigation systems and very little hint of what the valley would become, he persevered and the bluff ofﬁcially bears his name. The Indian name is perhaps the most descriptive for it means “Where the Rock Bluff Meets the River” and was given to the bluff by the Okanagan tribe. Battle Bluff is used to recognize the Indian massacre which supposedly took place there. According to the Indian legend: one autumn before the white men came to the valley a Nicola Indian war party moved undetected through the Similkmeen Valley and managed to slip over the range dividing the two valleys by way of a seldom used trail and stopped. However as night began to settle in a young boy noticed movement on the top of the ridge and asked a warrior who could possibly be on top of the big bluff. The chief ascertained that no one from their tribe was up there and plans were made to stealthily surround the intruders by way of a southern trail. This was accomplished during the night and in the morning the Nicola band found themselves surrounded. A short but vicious battle ensued and many of the victims were hurled over the rim to the rocks hundreds of feet below There was only one Nicola tribe survivor, a young boy, who was sent back to his own plateau country to tell his tale and thus dissuade any further attacks. And this is why legend has it, that if you look closely at the face of the cliff you can visualize an Indian head - an imposing, silent monument to the tragedy. The truth of the legend remains unresolved: In fact there are a number of versions. Another version tells of an Indian maiden who was responsible for warning of an impending attack by the Shuswap tribe. Supposedly her image is imprinted on the face of the bluff. Indian artifacts have been found below the bluff and skeletons were supposedly uncovered during the excavations.

Police briefs Man arrested on warrant
Oliver/Osoyoos RCMP and Rural GIS members arrested long-time Oliver resident Delmar Scott on January 22 for an outstanding warrant. Incidental to his arrest, police located more than two ounces of cocaine, a large amount of money and other drug paraphernalia. Scott was remanded into custody to answer to charges of possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafﬁcking. Scott is presently facing similar charges of possession of a controlled substance (for the purpose of trafﬁcking), stemming from drug charges in 2009 involving more than an ounce of cocaine. At the time of his arrest on January 22, Scott was at large on an undertaking on strict conditions.
Oliver RCMP is looking for a thief or thieves who ransacked the vehicles of a local company and stole some tools. The owner of I-Tech Electrical Services on 99 Street reported that someone entered a couple of company vans and stole an inverter and a paint sprayer. Police are still investigating, but no suspects have been identiﬁed. Lyonel Doherty photo

Taking care of your children’s vision: If a child has a high prescription or a turned eye that is not detected at a young age, the area of their brain responsible for vision does not develop properly (amblyopia). This means that even when they get older it is often too late to treat and they may have a permanent lazy eye. Parents are usually unable to tell that their children have an eye problem. This is why it is recommended that children first have their eyes tested at age 3, then every Dr. Amanda Erickson year after, until they are adults.

Bennest says government stats not based on real facts, figures Lyonel Doherty Oliver Chronicle A BC government report showing stunted population growth in Oliver isnâ€™t an accurate portrayal of whatâ€™s really going on, according to the Town. Acting Mayor Jack Bennest quickly responded to the report by BC Stats that shows Oliverâ€™s population growth declining by five per cent. BC Stats offer the following estimates: 4,594 in 2008; 4,789 in 2009; and 4,551 in 2010. This indicates a drop of 238 people from last year, putting Oliver near the bottom of the governmentâ€™s municipal growth chart. Bennest said estimations done by computer for 2009 could be showing an anomaly (deviation from common rule). He stated the loss of population in Oliver is minor, noting the communityâ€™s real drop is closer to 1 per cent if averaged into a trend. Census for 2010 will be more accurate, he pointed out. The acting mayor said provincial trends indicate de-
clining school enrolment, an aging population, and fewer people per housing unit. He noted Oliver has many more housing units than in 2006. â€œOliver is affected by business investment choices, and the Townâ€™s â€œsmart growthâ€? policies will continue to improve all facets of life here,â€? Bennest said. He noted more people are flocking to cities and fewer people are moving to rural areas. â€œLand here is attracting a retirement community not adverse to slow growth and peaceful neighbourhoods.â€? Bennest said Oliver is a small parcel of land in a large region. He pegs the entire community of Oliver at 10,000 people when you consider the Town, the Osoyoos Indian Band, and Area C. All of these areas are in friendly competition for industry and jobs, he pointed out. Bennest said the town is restricted by a dwindling land base and ALR restrictions. â€œBoth are important in forcing planning to look at growing up rather than increasing sprawl.â€? Municipal Manager Tom Szalay told the media that population figures go up and down. He said the figures provided by BC Stats certainly donâ€™t mean Oliver is closing up shop. He pointed to the new Southwinds Crossing development as proof.

Councillor Terry Schafer has been working on his own climate action plans, including a solar hot water system for his house after experiencing the highest electricity bill ever from FortisBC.
Town looking for local ‘buy-in’ for climate plan Lyonel Doherty Oliver Chronicle For some people, Oliver’s Climate Action Plans would be a good cure for insomnia. For others, it’s a move we can’t afford to ignore. Council recently looked at the final drafts of the corporate and community Climate Action Plans, which will attempt to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. The province has set an aggressive goal to reduce GHG emissions by 33 per cent by 2020. As part of the BC Climate Action Charter, the Town of Oliver has set reduction targets of its own. Its corporate plan identifies opportunities to reduce energy consumption and GHG emissions (by 10 per cent) in municipal operations over the next 10 years. The Town will aim to achieve an interim reduction of five per cent below 2009 levels by 2015. The goal of the community plan is to reduce emissions by two per cent by 2020 and 10 per cent by 2030. To date, the Town has undertaken some retrofit activities in office buildings, such as lighting upgrades and the replacement of old furnaces with high-efficiency natural gas furnaces. The Town is currently working with “Destination Conservation” to reduce fuel consumption, save dollars, reduce GHG emissions and improve efficiencies by: reducing unnecessary trips; educating crews on smart driving and idling reduction opportunities; and improving fleet maintenance. Councillor Terry Schafer said potential GHG reduction projects include xeriscap-
ing the cemetery and “geothermalling” the Town Hall and Public Works yard. But he noted the Town needs “buy-in” from Oliver residents to make an impact. “Those who may wish to lower their electrical bills by installing geo-thermal, air-to-air heat pumping, solar heating or solar hot water will be helping the community achieve carbon neutrality and saving money,” Schafer said he hopes the Town can find ways and means of assisting residents in this regard. He stated another possible side effect in the attempt to become carbon neutral could be the creation of businesses that specialize in the provision of carbon reduction services. For example, Schafer was shocked at his last power bill, which prompted him to begin creating a solar hot water system. “As energy costs continue to rise people are going to be looking for energy saving initiatives, and services should develop accordingly.” The councillor concedes that if every person in every community in BC made radical changes towards carbon neutrality, it would only help slow down the rate of climate change, not restore anything. “But it does feel good to being even a small part of the solution as opposed to making things worse at an increasing rate . . . and if you can save money doing it, all the better.” Once endorsed, the Town will incorporate the Climate Action Plans into its Official Community Plan. This will include additional open houses or public hearings in March.
Driver fails breath test after missing corner on 93 Street Oliver RCMP was dispatched to a single vehicle collision in the 33,600 block of 93 St. recently. A witness at the scene advised that a brown Dodge Stratus had missed a corner and went into a neighbouring yard. Officers attended and located the driver, a 22-year-old male from Oliver. The driver stated that he lost control on
gravel and crashed. The attending officer noted an odour of liquor on the driver’s breath and requested the driver provide a roadside breath sample. The driver provided two samples, both of which resulted in a “fail” on the roadside screening device. The driver was issued a 90-day Immediate Roadside Prohibition and the vehicle was impounded for 30 days.

Anti-poverty advocates need to keep at it
t’s hard to relate to poverty if you’ve never been there. But the ﬁlm that was shown at the recent poverty forum in Oliver gave you a little taste of what being poor is like. Although a one-sided ﬁlm, “Poor No More” is an eyeopener that helps you relate to the struggles that many families endure to make a living. And when the end credits roll, you feel great contempt for the Canadian government and all the big corporations in bed with it. Host Mary Walsh raises a good question: With all the money in Canada, why do we have so much poverty? There should be more than enough money to go around. But not surprisingly the gap between the rich and the poor continues to widen. The fact that many corporations don’t pay taxes or defer them is dumbfounding. You try that and see how far you get (hauled off to the nearest jail). There is something seriously wrong when wages don’t match the cost of living, and when the rent eats up more than half of your paycheque. It is so difﬁcult to get ahead in this country. You make a little money and the government takes it away. You fall on hard times and the system dehumanizes you. The heartbreaking stories you hear are a real testament that drastic change is needed. Your MP Alex Atamanenko acknowledges this, but says we need the right people in government to make this happen. If you don’t want to wait that long, you can always move to Sweden, where healthcare, childcare and post-secondary education is free. Although the subject matter was depressing, it was encouraging to see so many people attend the forum in Oliver. We just hope the ball continues to roll. The problem is that after people vent and have their say, that’s where it ends; no action is forthcoming. So we suggest that a local committee be formed to lobby for change (just like the big corporations do for their beneﬁt). Instead of bailing out a bank or sending millions in aid dollars overseas, why not help the poor next door get back on their feet again? Why not make it a priority to set aside more land for affordable housing? Why not close the tax havens for big business and make corporations pay their fair share? Why don’t the banks donate their preposterous service charges to set up special accounts for the needy? Is all this fairness and goodwill too much to ask?

Published addresses confusing Editor, Oliver Chronicle: It is confusing to me how locations in Oliver have been changed in your paper from what is normal for a grid system of street naming. Two cities that have this system are Surrey and Edmonton. It is very easy to ﬁnd locations in these cities. Example: break-in in the 36,800 block of 79 Street. This
break-in is in the area of the corner of 368 Ave. and 79 St. I suggest this address be written in your paper as “368 block of 79 St.” or “near the corner of 368 Ave. and 79 St.” The Chronicle’s address of 36083 97 St. says it is located on 97 St. and the cross street is 360 Ave. Shirley Roberts, Oliver
Oliver doesn’t need more noise pollution and its many effects Editor, Oliver Chronicle: Helicopters equal noise pollution, noise pollution affects bugs and animals, bugs affected by noise pollution cannot do their jobs - pollinate vines, fruit trees and other crops. Therefore, I’m thinking more jobs will be lost (not to mention food) than the few that will be created. Let us also factor in the echoing in the valley of the helicopter noise. Our valley of heaven in the Okanagan is the perfect design to really echo.
It is rumoured that people who live by a noisy airport die ﬁve years earlier. Hmmm. I suggest we all do some research on the noise pollution from the proposed venture (helicopter training school). Here is a good place to start: http://www. google.ca/search?client=safari&rls=en&q=noise+pollu tion+stats+of+helicopters&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&redir_ esc=&ei=eT43TdulBZKosAOErZX-Ag Leza Macdonald, Oliver
Thanks, but no thanks, let’s leave Oliver the way it is, a tranquil area
The Oliver Chronicle welcomes letters to the editor. firstname.lastname@example.org
I have lived in large cities all over Canada, and moved to Oliver nine years ago, mainly because of the nice, quiet area. My wife and l bought a home on 95 St., next to the airport knowing it was a private airport at that time, and have enjoyed all the things they do there from antique airplanes to the gliders. To now introduce a helicopter training school across the street from my house will without a doubt destroy this
peace and tranquil area of town. I agree 100 per cent with Bob Parker who sent a letter to the editor, printed in the Chronicle on January 19 about eroding our peace. Also as a footnote, the black and silver helicopter that comes and goes can rattle my wife’s china cupboards now, and is louder than any Harley Davidson l have ever heard. One wonders what it would be like with a training school. So l have to say thanks but no thanks, let’s leave Oliver the way it is . . . quiet. Lee Harwood, Oliver

Haitian politics convoluted, enter ‘Baby Doc’ A confidential 2006 cable from the US embassy in Haiti, subsequently made public by Wikileaks, said that the United States viewed the possible return of either of the two exiled Haitian ex-presidents, Jean-Bertrand Aristide or Jean-Claude Duvalier, as “unhelpful”. But one of them, former president-for-life Jean-Claude Gwynne Dyer “Baby Doc” Duvalier, is already back in Haiti, probably with Washington’s approval. “Baby Doc” took over the dictatorship from his dying father, Francois “Papa Doc” Duvalier, at the age of nineteen in 1971, and ruled with same brutality and greed as his father until he was driven from power and into exile in 1986. What can have made him think it was a good idea to come back now? If you believe the headlines, he has made a dreadful mistake. On 18 January, only two days after his return, “Baby Doc” was brought before a court in Port-au-Prince and charged with official corruption, embezzlement of funds, money laundering and assassination. But things are not always what they seem. First, there is the fact that both the United States and France, where Duvalier was living in exile, would have been keeping track of him, and must have known of his intention to return. Indeed, they probably put him up to it: he was travelling on a long-expired diplomatic passport, and would never have been allowed to board the plane to Haiti if Washington and Paris had not quietly blessed his trip. Secondly, he may never see the inside of a jail. He was set free after the court hearing without even having to
post bail, and the chief magistrate has ninety days to decide whether there is enough evidence to bring him to trial. A lot can happen in ninety days. Thirdly, “Baby Doc” has some support in Haiti, as witness the crowds chanting support for him outside the court. It’s 25 years since he left power, and most of the ten million Haitians are under 25. They don’t remember the kidnappings, torture and murder of opponents of the Duvaliers, father and son, by the regime’s militia, the Tonton Macoute. They do remember their parents saying that Haitians lived better under the Duvaliers, and unfortunately, it is true. Since then they have seen some intervals of democracy, punctuated by military coups and foreign interventions, but living standards had declined steeply even before the huge earthquake last year that killed 3 percent of the population. So “Baby Doc” is not just a deluded no-hoper, although he is unlikely ever to be president again. His presence in Haiti will frighten the outgoing president, Rene Preval, and his chosen successor, Jude Celestin – as it was doubtless intended to do. Haiti has been in a protracted political crisis since the presidential election last November, with accusations of fraud flying in all directions. The outside powers that have effectively run the country since 2004, the United States, Canada and France, didn’t want Preval’s candidate to win, and they are making sure he doesn’t. Preval was a little too independent-minded for their taste, though nobody would accuse him of being a raving leftist. They must have feared that Celestin would also have a mind of his own, because they altered the outcome of the recent election to make sure that he wasn’t in the run-off. It was not very subtly done. Celestin came second in the
election, and since no candidate had won 50 percent of the vote he should have been a candidate in the run-off second round. But then the “expert verification mission” – six of whose seven “experts” come from the United States, Canada or France – changed the results. They disqualified a lot of pro-Celestin votes, pushing him down to third place, but they didn’t actually do a recount. They just arbitrarily threw out 234 tally sheets, mostly from areas that were pro-Celestin. They didn’t even examine more than 90 percent of the ballot sheets. The man now facing front-runner Mirlande Manigat in the run-off, according to those “experts”, is Haiti’s bestknown pop musician, Michel Martelly, who is as reliably pro-Washington as she is. If that decision stands, Celestin falls. But Rene Preval’s government is still resisting that decision, so it was time to frighten him into submission. Enter “Baby Doc”. Or at least, that’s probably what’s happening, though it doesn’t make a lot of sense. Why not? Because what happens in Haiti doesn’t really matter in the least to the United States, Canada or France. Haitian politics are convoluted and turbulent because the major players have no loyalty beyond their own selfinterest, but so long as the other exiled ex-president, JeanBertrand Aristide, doesn’t come back, the game is of no importance to the outside powers. Aristide, currently living in South Africa, could play a role in the Caribbean similar to that of Hugo Chavez in Venezuela if he regained power, but that is not currently on the cards. What is going on in Haiti at the moment is actually just Brownian motion. The outside powers have nothing important at stake, but the music goes on playing so they feel that they have to dance. Foolish and futile, but perfectly normal.

Louie is longest elected chief of 25 years, feels honoured Lyonel Doherty Oliver Chronicle

Osoyoos Indian Band Chief Clarence Louie was re-elected again, making him the longest elected chief in the entire Okanagan Nation.
His recent re-election by acclamation makes Osoyoos Indian Band Chief Clarence Louie the longest elected chief (of 25 years) in the entire Okanagan Nation. â€œI am always honored to represent OIB in any way I can,â€? Louie told the Chronicle. But a signiďŹ cant fact for him is seeing the many OIB youth never experiencing another OIB chief. He said this brings with it a huge responsibility that most will never experience. â€œBut I know rez politics better than most, and just because I won by acclamation does not mean that all OIB members support me as chief â€“ some never will â€“ but in a democracy no one needs 100 per cent support or nothing would ever get done.â€? Louie said the election brings no time for celebration but much reďŹ‚ection and remembrance for one of the OIBâ€™s past leaders, Ethan Baptiste, who died in a car accident last summer. â€œI and many others will miss him big time this round.â€? Baptiste ran against Louie two years ago but lost by a small margin. As far as Louieâ€™s goals as re-elected chief, he said there is no ďŹ nish line in all the important socio-economic work that needs to be done on the reservation. â€œWe have a lot of unďŹ nished work and many challenges. Anyone who runs a business knows goals are always a moving target.â€? But Louie said the OIB hopes to get the golf course housing development going this year as well as the new business park. He noted they want to continue to create jobs and bring more income and opportunity to the South Okanagan. The OIB council election next month will see eight people running for four seats. The incumbents are Theresa Gabriel, Charlotte Stringham, Tony Baptiste and Veronica McGinnis. The four challengers are Thomas Alex, Jarrah Feist, Kathy Falkus, and Helen Gallagher.

‘Boomers’ not ready for big ‘A’ Contributed To the Chronicle “Baby boomers” in Oliver, like their counterparts around the rest of the country, have a troubling lack of awareness about Alzheimer’s disease, according to a new online survey. “The gap in awareness in BC is sounding alarm bells as to whether our largest population is prepared for the rising tide of dementia that is ahead,” says Laurie Myres, the Oliver support and education coordinator for the non-profit Alzheimer Society of BC. Perhaps more troubling, she adds, is that respondents to the national survey were unfamiliar with controllable risk factors associated with Alzheimer’s disease, such as obesity, diabetes, heart disease and chronic depression. “Awareness and education are the cornerstones for risk reduction particularly since there is yet no cure or treatment to stop the progression of Alzheimer’s disease,” Myres says. “People need to take care of their brain health. We need to work together to support those who are already on the dementia journey and to find the causes and cure for this devastating disease.” The survey was released earlier this month to kick off national Alzheimer Awareness Month. Among its findings: Twenty-four per cent of BC baby boomers can’t name any of the early signs of Alzheimer’s This is worrisome, Myres says, because the risk level for boomers doubles every five years after age 65. And boomers make up almost 30 per
cent of the overall population in the province. Less than half of those surveyed in BC were able to identify later-stage symptoms other than the most commonly known loss of memory. “This indicates a general lack of awareness of life-altering changes such as hallucinations and complete dependency on others for basic care,” she says. Oliver residents can test their
own knowledge by taking the survey at www.alzheimerbc.org/testyourknowledge.aspx. “We want everyone, especially those 40 and older, to learn about Alzheimer’s disease, know the warning signs, and reduce their risk by making simple lifestyle changes.” For more information on the local support group and other resources, contact Myres at 250-493-8182 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

A place for Windy DEVELOPMENT OF A PEST MANAGEMENT PLAN File # 104-965-11/16 Weyerhaeuser (Princeton Timberlands) is developing an Integrated Pest Mgmt Plan under the BC Integrated Pest Management Act and associated regulations. The plan will describe a pest management program using Integrated Pest Management techniques. The purpose of this IPMP is to ensure effective and safe vegetation control within an integrated pest management program on crown land within the Southern Interior Forest Region, Forest Licenses FLA18674 Okanagan TSA, FLA18970 Boundary TSA, FLA18698 Merritt TSA and TFL 59. This region includes Weyerhaeuser’s Princeton Timberlands division’s operations on crown land and includes but is not limited to the surrounding areas of Oliver, Okanagan Falls, Penticton, Kelowna, Princeton and Lumby, BC. Under this IPMP, the following are a combination of selectively applied techniques or methods that will be used alone or in combination with one another to suppress and control competitive vegetation. Our approach to prompt site prep and planting with quality seedlings on the best microsites enhances our efforts towards reducing the number of instances where there will be the need for vegetation control. Preventive or minimizing soil disturbance, assessment and early recognition of vegetation problems are also carefully reviewed. Mechanical & Manual applications such as Hand Girdling, Brush and Chain saws, (brushing & weeding), Burning, Site Preparation, biological product Chontrol Peat Paste, Herbicide Application with ground foliar spraying, selective or spot treatment and basal bark. Herbicides proposed for use include, glyphosate (Vantage Forestry / VisionMax), and triclopyr (Garlon RTU). The proposed effective term of this IPMP is from March 31, 2011 to March 30, 2016. The proposed IPMP, diagrams and map(s) may be viewed at either of the Weyerhaeuser offices at 1655 Maple Street, Okanagan Falls, BC V0H1R2 or Old Hedley Road, Princeton, BC V0X 1W0. If you wish to review the document please phone for an appointment at 250-497-1223 or 250-295-4274 / Fax 250-497-1281 or you may request to receive further information in regards to this IPMP from the following contact: E-Qwest Consulting Ltd. firstname.lastname@example.org Phone number 250-766-2677 Fax number 250-766-2677 A person wishing to contribute information about a proposed treatment site, relevant to the development of the Pest Management Plan, may send copies of the information to the applicant at the address above within 30 days of the publication of this notice.

Council to address local cemetery concerns Lyonel Doherty Oliver Chronicle Town Council has been asked to tour the Oliver cemetery in order to better understand a recent letter of concern. In the letter, Maria Cancela from Oliver, points out a concern with the “Sumac” and “Pine” sections of the cemetery. She noted these sections do not permit elevated headstones, yet other areas in the cemetery do. “If this is a cost saving measure, is Council comfortable with a lower level of service to cemetery patrons in order to save money?” Cancela said it is obvious by visiting the cemetery that loved ones have had to do their own level of maintenance to ensure their headstones are not overgrown. Cancela said she is not permitted (along with others) to leave articles of affection at the cemetery, such as flowers, candles or vases during the April to October mowing season (unless she removes these articles herself every day). She questions why this policy only applies to particular areas. Cancela suggested staff investigate the one-time cost of xeriscaping the corridor of headstones to assist in the lawn mowing issue. She also suggested Council members tour the cemetery with staff and caretakers to discuss possible solutions to the above concerns. Municipal Manager Tom Szalay said most of the burial areas do not allow raised markers. This policy was instituted several decades ago to simplify maintenance and keep costs affordable.
Szalay said upright markers have been allowed in the older sections of the cemetery, but some have been installed haphazardly, making weekly maintenance more challenging. As a result, some of these areas tend to look unkempt. In response to requests, the Town recently opened up two newer burial areas that accept upright markers. Families using these sections must pay an additional $300 per grave site for the Town to install a row of concrete pads to support the markers and still allow mowing (without the need to mow around individual markers). Szalay said Council is faced with a difficult dilemma in raising taxes in a small community to enhance cemetery services when confronted with other demands competing for a limited tax base. Councillor Marji Basso agreed with Cancela that Council should tour the cemetery. “We need to look at how the cemetery is run. There’s got to be a better way to continue mowing and not have headstones completely covered.” Councillor Michael Newman said he’s not comfortable with the Town having the obligation of providing a high level of maintenance at the cemetery. “Families have some responsibility as well.” Councillor Jack Bennest questioned whether local funeral homes would look at doing grave marker maintenance. Mayor Pat Hampson said the Town previously had a cemetery committee to deal with such issues. He said a previous letter of concern regarding “careless” maintenance was quite upsetting to cemetery workers.

Oliver grandmothers unite for Africans Contributed To the Chronicle An encouraging, enthusiastic and high energy group of some 30 women gathered on January 19 to form a local chapter of Grandmothers for Africa. The group will join 240 other grassroots chapters in Canada to help grandmothers in sub-Saharan Africa who are caring for sick and dying children and grandchildren and ﬁghting for family survival in the midst of the HIV/AIDS pandemic. Inspired by the strength, determination and tenacity of grandmothers everywhere, the Stephen Lewis Foundation came up with the idea of linking grandmothers across the globe. The passion and energy unleashed is making a difference in the lives of milllons of children orphaned by AIDS. Stephen Lewis is the former UN Secretary’s special envoy for HIV/AIDS in Africa. He believes every dollar raised is a blow to the pandemic and if AIDS is to be defeated it will happen at a community level, drawing on the astonishing courage and resilience of grassroots organizations in Africa. There are 14 million orphans in Africa robbed of their parents by HIV/AIDS. Their grandmothers, having buried their own children, have taken up the burden of raising the next generation. These children are the hope of Africa but the grandmothers cannot do it all alone. A whole generation has mostly gone missing. Who is there
to be the wage earners? Who will drive the school bus? Who will comfort the children? Feed them? Love them? Granny projects assist by providing primary education and daycare, food, upgraded housing, purchase of garden plots, small business loans, teaching and counselling about AIDS prevention. In Canada each local group decides how best to proceed. The Oliver women were full of ideas for having fun and raising funds especially after seeing an educational DVD showing the projects made possible in Africa. One of the huge advantages of a relatively small organization like the Stephen Lewis Foundation is its ability to react quickly to local needs and be a “gap ﬁller” to facilitate project development. The motto “we do what we can when we can” appealed to the Oliver group as did the notion of shared leadership at a local level so that no one stands alone in the executive positions and no one has to feel overburdened or guilty about going away on their holidays. Lynn Popoff from the Penticton Grannies emphasized the organization is not restricted to grandmothers. Anyone interested in the cause is welcome to join. If you want to become a member come to the ﬁrst meeting on Thursday, February 3 at 1 p.m. in the basement of the Oliver United Church. Projects are already in the formative stages and many hands make light work.
Darwin Awards go to the most deserving imbeciles The year 2010 was another good year for the human gene pool. Many new candidates put themselves in the running for the Darwin Awards, given each year to the unfortunate klutzes who, through their own lack of judgment, removed their genes from the pool. They included a thick thief, a simple swimmer, dim drivers and moronic mechanics. The Grand Canyon is a popular tourist destination, with spectacular views. Since most of the views include large distances in the downward direction, many warning signs are posted and many fences have been built to protect the tourists from themselves. Near some of the viewpoints, tall columns rise up out of the canyon, some of them with ﬂat tops. TourBy Jim ists like to toss coins onto them and make a wish. This is where the thick thief comes in. He got a bag, climbed the fence, jumped over to the top of a column and picked up the coins. He could have tossed the full bag back over the fence, but someone might have stolen it, so he held onto it and jumped. Being a bag of coins heavier than he was before, he didn't make it. If you've read Rudyard Kipling's just-so stories, you will have heard of the Limpopo River, which he calls the great grey-green, greasy Limpopo River. In this story a young elephant is bitten on the nose by a crocodile and the ensuing tug-of-war stretches the nose into the trunk that elephants have today. The Olifants River, the main tributary of the Limpopo, also has crocodiles and swimming is prohibited. Locals know that
you do not, with a capital "do" and a capital "not," swim there. Ever. But a 27-year-old local woman was unharmed after her ﬁrst swim, and still okay after her second, so maybe the warnings are a little overblown? Not really. On her third dip, with no fuss or noise and barely a ripple, she found out what crocodiles like to eat for lunch. Convertible tops and T-roofs open up new possibilities while driving cars. For one thing, they make it easier to change drivers without stopping. Unfortunately for one young lady, she lost her grip on her Troof during the swap and ended up bouncing off the road and ending her life on impact with a guardrail. Her passenger was able to grab the wheel and Bowering save his own life, although it did result in a charge of driving with a suspended licence. The excitement of race day can be infectious, what with all the noise and excitement, and people can end up doing things that they wouldn't normally do. Like the two crew members working as mechanics for one of the racing teams. They thought if they put four gallons of methanol in a steel barrel that they could sit on it, throw a match in the bung hole and enjoy a rocketpropelled ride across the parking lot. The barrel behaved less like a rocket and more like a bomb, neatly removing one man from the gene pool and scaring a little sense into the other. And that is just a sampling of last year's Darwin Award nominees.

SWD sprays that have been cleared for use in the US. “We won’t get it without a government policy change; it is more about making a point. We could be using safer and more environmentally friendly products,” said Lucas. A resolution requesting the auditor general investigate the Canadian Food Inspection Agency’s testing program of pesticide residues on imported produce, reiterates growers’ beliefs that Ottawa doesn’t recognize the higher risk associated with produce imported from countries with low pesticide standards. “For instance Chinese apple juice concentrate is a concern. Imported products like that don’t have to meet our high standards, standards that force us into a high cost of production and yet we have to compete with these cheaper imports. It’s like tying one hand behind our back. All we’re saying is if you are going to do that then tie one hand behind the other guy’s back too.” And growers are seeking assurances that water currently used by agriculture remains with the industry. “We recognize there are other water users but we also need recognition that without water there is no agriculture,” Lucas said.
Growers attending the 122nd annual BC Fruit Growers’ Association convention in Penticton on January 27-28 will be bringing a number of resolutions to the floor that reflect the worries and concerns of an industry beset by problems. Glen Lucas, the BCFGA’s general manager noted that financial programs like Crop Insurance, AgriStability and the Replant Program are up for discussion again. However, there are equally pressing concerns facing growers in 2011 and their importance is mirrored in the eight resolutions governing crop protection, as well as those under the trade, taxes and regulations section, which covers genetically engineered produce. “Invasive pests will be at the top of people’s minds because of Spotted Wing Drosophila and Apple Clear Wing Moth,” Lucas said, adding that growers will be asking government to assist them in a number of ways including a compensation program, adequate funding for pest control and increased resources for inspection of imported produce. “We’re talking about the first couple of years of a new pest’s introduction when no one knows what’s going on, what the losses will be or what can be done. Here we would like the government to acknowledge this is an adjustment period, [the pest] shouldn’t have come in, we should have had more inspections, and now you need more help,” Lucas said. “But that’s not how their rules are written; they’ll prevent a pest from crossing the border but once it is here it becomes someone else’s problem. But we would like to see more engagement than that from the federal government. They do some inspections at the border but clearly not enough because [SWD] arrived here. So there has to be better resources, more policy and a bit of a change in terms of what the approach is.” Another resolution is a response to growers’ concerns they are falling Wendy Johnson photo behind their American cousins in terms of spray Eric Lemonde from Montreal studies the branches on this full registrations.

Carol Ann Quibell Special to the Chronicle The Oliver Parks and Recreation Society has applied for tenure to take on the role of trail maintenance from the Ministry of Environment. This was one of many agenda items discussed at the society’s recent meeting. Although the ministry has done a good job in the past, the society believes it has a more vested interest and wishes to maintain the local trail system. So it is currently applying more pressure to obtain tenure. According to director Allan Patton, the society had to go over budget on the pool liner and so applied for and was approved grant funding. Although they had an excellent estimate on the cost, it was hard to inspect the pool closely because of the water in the pool. Parks and Recreation is paying for part of the costs but most is covered by the grant. There was a discussion regarding the ﬁnancial

statements provided by the society versus the RDOS and the problem that is incurred by not having real costs available four or ﬁve months prior to providing statements. The basic year-end report is almost ready but for 2011 they want to make changes to the format of the ﬁnancial statements. The budget has been increased by 1.1 per cent for operations and maintenance, and then 5.5 per cent is added to this that is dedicated to go into the reserve fund due to the facilities getting older and in need of repair. This is a substantial one-time increase to ensure reserves are adequate. The “Women of Oliver for Women” requested a grant and the society has agreed rather than providing them with a grant it will help with their trade show and give them the noncommercial rate so they can save money. There was a general discussion on policies of giving grants and aid and staff will provide information for the next meeting. The society wishes to establish a ﬁnancial committee to review issues and then come to the board with a report making future meetings smoother and quicker. Correspondence was received from Shiela Lange thanking the society for the use of the community centre for the Christmas dinner. The SOSS Hornets, who volunteer a great deal with Parks and Recreation, requested and was granted a grant of $500 for their trip to Idaho. The Oliver Curling Club is having difﬁculty ﬁnancially and it has requested a one-time only grant. There are fewer registrations with less revenue, so the club has asked for assistance. The society will try and ﬁnd ways to help the club with fundraising and the use of its facility for special events when possible, but nothing formal was determined for this year. Manager Bob Grant and Manager of Programs Carol Sheridan gave a report on the new compressor for the arena which was paid for from the reserves. The New Year’s resolutions included ﬁlling up with more exercise classes and putting out a request for proposal for a multipurpose tractor for mowing the trails and potentially Area C parks and trails. In other news, the society appointed Mayor Pat Hampson as the new chairperson. In-camera items discussed related to labour concerns and the union.

The recent forum at the Elks Hall in Oliver attracted many people concerned about poverty. Following the film, “Poor No More,” a panel discussion took place. Shown here are members of the panel, from left, MP Alex Atamanenko, Brita Park, Tina Wallner from RCMP Victim Services, HEU regional vice-president Rhonda Bruce, and Laurene Sloboda from the Okanagan Boys and Girls Club. Atamanenko said there’s a subculture of poverty that people don’t often see.
Advocates seek to address poverty in Oliver Lyonel Doherty Oliver Chronicle (This is Part 1 of a two-part series on the poverty forum held at the Elks Hall on January 13.) A film and panel discussion on poverty has sparked a move in Oliver to help the poor live meaningful lives without constant struggle. But where does one start? The panel discussion at the Elks Hall started with a film titled “Poor No More.” It showed the bread lines of the great depression and how those bread lines still exist. In fact, food banks are an established institution in this country. Approximately 20 per cent of Canadians earn less than $10 per hour, and those interviewed in the film stated that many companies skirt the law to avoid paying decent wages. One cashier said she was still earning $11.10 per hour after 13 years on the job. The film criticized the welfare system for dehumanizing people and expecting them to spend all their money before receiving a cent. And because a parent is poor and can only afford run-down accommodations, she risks having her
children taken away by social services. “We’re surrounded by the riches of the world, but there never seems to be enough,” said the film’s host Mary Walsh. Other criticism was levelled against big corporations and the Canadian Council of Chief Executives for controlling politicians with its pro-wealthy lobbying efforts. It was stated some corporations avoid paying taxes altogether, courtesy of tax havens permitted by the government. “Free trade wiped out more than one million jobs in Canada,” the film stated. Walsh and her team compared Canada’s working economy to other countries, such as Sweden, which offers free childcare, free healthcare, and free post-secondary education. It was stated that even the poor can afford daycare, and part-time workers get full-time benefits. After the film, BC Southern Interior MP Alex Atamanenko said there’s something wrong when we have students in Canada carrying $40,000 in debt and students in Sweden don’t pay tuition. It was noted, however, that the Swedes pay very high taxes. Atamanenko told the Oliver audience that a subculture

of poverty exists, a culture that many of us don’t come in contact with. “It’s there, and it’s time we have to address it.” Roxie Van Aller, executive director of Desert Sun Counselling and Resource Centre, was one of several panelists at the forum. “What we see at Desert Sun is the working poor are becoming a greater issue in our communities.” Van Aller noted that people are struggling with mental health issues, loss of employment, and drug abuse. She stated if anyone is struggling or isolated at home, that person should get an advocate to help open some doors. Jim Ouellette, representing the Oliver food bank, said he sees poverty in different ways. He admitted that before he started working at the food bank, he didn’t realize there was so much poverty around. But food bank volunteers in Oliver serve about 150 people a week, Ouellette pointed out. The panelist noted there’s a false impression that only useless, lazy people utilize the food bank. Some have lost their jobs, he said. “We’ve built a community (in Oliver) geared for seniors. Continued on Pg B2...

We need young people to look after us (old folks),” Ouellette said. Laurene Sloboda from the Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs said most of the clients they counsel have experienced poverty, forcing them to rely on food banks. She stated people get frustrated when their welfare payment doesn’t cover the rent, or when their minimum wage doesn’t cover daycare costs. Sloboda said a lot of youth are faced with anxiety when confronted with poverty, which can lead to domestic abuse and delinquency. RCMP Victim Services spokesperson Tina Wallner said poverty is a huge barrier to women leaving abusive relationships. She noted that 50 to 60 per cent of the men, women and children she sees in the program have experienced poverty. She also stated a lack of transportation is another barrier to people getting the help they need. Panelist Brita Park spoke on behalf of
Helen Overnes, president of the Oliver Women’s Institute. Reading from a letter, Park said the community was self sufﬁcient at one point, with youth working on the farm and parents managing without the food bank. But that has changed. The community lost General Coach, food prices have gone up, and parents have to pay 4060 per cent of their income on rent. Park said the government was asked to raise the minimum wage, but its response was that would cause unemployment. “We have 200 people suffering with addiction problems resulting in many kids going to school hungry,” Park said. According to Overnes, teenagers are now growing up feeling they are entitled to everything because they live in a material world. The Women’s Institute believes Oliver’s biggest challenge is affordable rental housing. (Part 2 of the forum will be published next week.)

With the generous support of the Kiwanis Club and the Friends of the Library, the library will present a show by “Sam the Magic Man,” a professional touring magi-
cian and illusionist. Sam performed here in 2007 and even the skeptics in the crowd were enthralled as items vanished without a trace and things appeared with the tap of his wand. And remember the sudden and startling appearance of Fluffy the Rabbit? Join the staff this Thursay at 7 p.m. at the library for this free family event. All ages are welcome to attend and there will be some great door prizes to give away.

Retiree gives her heart to orphanage in Kenya Bernice Balmes Special to the Chronicle So far, my retirement has been far from relaxing. And I couldn’t be happier! Since I retired from the South Okanagan General Hospital in 2000, I’ve started an orphanage in Kenya, “Compassion House Kenya,” which now provides a loving home and education for 14 boys and girls between the ages of two and 18. I’ve also increased my involvement in my church and have become part of several Oliver families as a parttime nanny. Yes, I love kids. I’ve also known since the age of ﬁve that I would go to Africa, my heart has always been drawn there. My African adventure began in 1969 when my former husband and I and our toddler journeyed to Kenya for the ﬁrst time. We were there for seven years, with our main project being a poly-technical school for young people. We formed some close working relationships with local families while we were there, including my best friends in Kenya, now our local agents at the orphanage, the Bushebi family. In fact, I have known the director of our orphanage, Dalmas Bushebi, since he was two years old. It is very gratifying that the next generation of both our families is assuming a role in Compassion House. It has been a great pleasure to watch our orphanage kids mature. The ﬁrst child we took in, Joseph Simiyu, has grown from four years to 10 and is now thriving. When he was ﬁrst brought to us he had been living on the street and was suffering from a number of severe health problems. Some of the older children that joined us as young teenagers are now completing high school, and looking forward to college. Compassion House grew out of a feeding program for street children. When I ﬁrst went back to Kenya after my retirement, I was shocked to ﬁnd that there were so many children living on the streets. This was a direct result of the AIDS crisis, which devastated many families. Given the deep-rooted Kenyan culture of caring for extended family,
for a child to end up on the street meant that most of the adults in his extended family were either dead or severely ill. I had found my calling. From the early days of the orphanage, I received tremendous support from friends, relatives, and my home church, Living Way Christian Centre, in Oliver. They provide the regular, monthly ﬁnances required to build and maintain the orphanage, and support the children. We’ve also been able to develop livestock and dairy projects to help sustain the orphanage. There are continually new challenges at the orphanage, whether it is a new child coming into our care, an increase in school fees, or inﬂation in food prices. Other local community contributions to date have included a box of toys sent over by Strong Start Pre-School, and clothes and support from the Firehall Bistro, and donations from Ella Restaurant in Osoyoos. People have also been very generous with their time. I have taken three groups over to Kenya on my last three trips, some of them from the Oliver area. They assisted with projects to improve the orphanage and also spent time with the children – playing with and teaching them. I got back from my most recent visit in November and subsequently held a fundraising bake sale in the Oliver mall in December. Thanks to all of you who contributed, we were able to raise $539.75. This has enabled us to start an income garden for the orphanage. Our current fundraising focus is getting electrical service to the orphanage and putting in a proper kitchen. Imagine cooking three meals a day, every day, over an open ﬁre? The new kitchen will be healthier, cleaner, and more efﬁcient than our current one. Our next fundraiser will be a spaghetti dinner at the Firehall Bistro on Monday, March 7. There will be information on the orphanage and a silent auction — a good chance to “re-gift” those unwanted presents from 2010. And of course, a good, hot, inexpensive dinner, hosted by Bill and Dawn Reid. Come out and discover what we are doing in Kenya, have a great meal, and meet some new friends.
Bernice Balmes poses for a photo in her banana tree patch in Kenya, where she runs an orphanage.
If you know of folks that would beneﬁt from this dinner, pass the word along. See you at the Firehall. The best reward of all is to see our kids smile and laugh as they chase our goats around the yard, play soccer, or celebrate a special event with a homemade cake. If you’d like more information about our orphanage, Compassion House Kenya, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a message for me at 250-498-4595. Or if you have an item for the auction at the spaghetti dinner, call me to arrange pick-up.

Evening with Buechner very delightful Leslie Cryderman Special to the Chronicle Still smiling. The unusual juxtaposition of humour and classical piano repertoire made for a truly entertaining and delightful evening as Sara Davis Buechner, currently Associate professor at UBC, delivered the third concert in the series for the South Okanagan Concert Society on Friday, January 14. Ms. Buechner opened with a ﬁnely nuanced performance of Haydnʼs Piano Sonata in E ﬂat major written in 1794, the last of his piano sonatas. We were off to a good start for a piano concert program, but then, as our performer began speaking, we discovered there was also a comedian on stage. Ms. Buechner instantly connected with her audience as she communicated not only the music, but information regarding the composers and herself. Haydn was followed by the lesser known Jan Dussek. Although Dussek is somewhat represented in the intermediate years of piano study by many sonatinas, his larger works are much less often heard. Ms. Buechner played his Sonata in F Minor, Opus 77, written in 1812, the year of Dussekʼs death. She told the
audience some interesting tidbits regarding his life and music, and we learned that Dussek was the ﬁrst pianist to angle the piano the way we are accustomed to, with the pianist in proﬁle. The second half of the program was devoted to the popular jazz genre. We learned about the so called “girl Gershwin”, Dana Suesse, an American composer whose “Cocktail Suite” was performed by Ms. Buechner. Written about 1940, the Suite has four movements called Old-fashioned, Champagne, Bacardi and Manhattan. There was lots of opportunity for joking about and Ms. Buechner took full advantage of the fact. A contemporary of Gershwin, Suesse wrote many “hits”, but her name never became as well known as her male counterparts. The ﬁnale to the program was the well-loved “Rhapsody in Blue” by George Gershwin. Always a crowd pleaser, Rhapsody in Blue is one of the most performed pieces in the piano repertoire and Ms. Buechner received a well deserved standing ovation. For an encore we were treated to a much quieter and soothing Gershwin song, “Someone To Watch Over Me”. This was a concert by an extraordinary musician, certainly knowledgable, talented and willing to share music in the best way, with humour and style

Smile of the week
Slade’s a roast beef, gravy guy What is your pet peeve in this community? The annual transient population hanging out at Lions Park. If you could fast forward the Town of Oliver by 50 years, what can you visualize? No idea. I can hardly visualize next week, not 50 years. What is the perfect day for you in Oliver? A round of golf with my wife and friends, followed by a great dinner (which I would prepare). What community issues need the most attention? Lack of jobs. What would be your ideal job? Not to have one. But if I did, one that involves helping others with a flexible schedule. Who inspires you the most? My two sons. I am very proud to be their dad. If a genie granted you three wishes, what would they be? Good health for my family, enough money to retire, and the ability to help those who deserve it. Staff photo

A DIVISION OF FIRST WEST CREDIT UNION
What is your most important value and why? The belief in my family. They provide me with the focus I need and inspire me on a daily basis. Why did you choose to live in this town? We believe that a small town is a good place to raise a family. I had the opportunity for employment here. Big cities have too many distractions.
What is your greatest extravagance? Bought a new pair of runners a year ago. Does that count? What living person do you most admire? Reid and Calvin. When and where were you happiest? Hanging out with my family and friends. It doesn’t matter what we are doing, it is always fun. Which talent would you most like to have? To play a musical instrument.
Do you have a goal in life? To be a good dad, husband, and friend.
Who are your heroes in real life? Though he is dead, his spirit is real. So the answer would be my grandpa.
If you had one super power, what would it be? To fly.
What or who is your greatest love in your life? Without question, my family and friends.
If you won the $50 million Max lottery, what would you do with the money? Set up our kids for life, help out family and friends, travel and play golf and enjoy the company of my wife.
What is it that you most dislike? Dishonest people, and people who intentionally hurt others.
If you were the mayor of Oliver, what would you do? I would never want to be mayor; you can never make everyone happy. Too much politics. If you were a fly, which wall in town would you like to inhabit? I would not choose to be a fly on the wall. I believe that if I need to know something, I will be told.
What do you consider your greatest achievement? Raising a family. What is your favourite book? I don’t think I have ever read a book that did not centre on furthering my education. What is your favourite meal? Roast beef, gravy, mashed potatoes and salad.

B12 Oliver Chronicle Wednesday, January 26, 2011
Mass soccer registration planned for Jan. 27 in Oliver Contributed To the Chronicle The 2011 SOYSA mini and youth soccer season is approaching quickly. Even with all the snow and winter conditions lately, there is a lot of coordination and planning happening behind the scenes to kick off the season. A mass registration is planned for Thursday, January 27 at the Oliver Community Centre, Room 2 between 6-8:00 p.m. Registration forms are available on the soysa.net website and/or Sundance Video. The early registration deadline has been extended this year and is available until February 15. Deadline for all registrations is March 15. A full uniform (shirt, shorts, and socks) is provided as well as a team and individual photo. Soccer cleats and shin pads are highly recommended and mandatory at the youth level. Mini program This program runs from April 5 to June 17. All practices and games are Tuesday’s and Friday’s at Tuc-el-Nuit Elementary from 6-7 p.m. There is no soccer planned for April 22, May 20 and June 3. The mini program is an introduction to soccer and it’s really the grassroots of the game. Grassroots is about small games (three vs three, four vs four or seven vs seven) and basic skill development. Small sided soccer is the heart of the BC Soccer Association (BCSA) Grassroots Soccer Program. More touches on the ball, active participation, less “grouping” around the ball, lots of action for the kids, lots of goals (they like that) and lots of fun.
For more information on the Grassroots development program, check out: http:// www.bcsoccer.net/bcsa/SOCCER/GrassrootsDevelopment/tabid/159/Default.aspx Youth program This program runs from April 9 to June 20. Most league games are Saturdays, except for the occasional Friday night game. Teams are required to travel to Osoyoos, Oliver, Keremeos, Penticton, and Summerland to play their league games. The youth program caters to players from 11 to 18 years of age. The emphasis of fun, age-specific drills geared for improvement, sportsmanship and healthy competition is the focus for this group. Age groups are combined to ensure there are enough players and teams to make the program fun and fair for everyone. South Okanagan Youth Soccer is an organization dedicated to the development and enjoyment of soccer by youth in the area. The organization is run by a volunteer board of directors, and the coaches and managers of the teams are also volunteers. If you are interested in coaching, contact youth coordinator Deanna Nemeth at 250498-4910 or mini coordinator Jeff Nice at 250-498-2368. Soccer Express will be selling soccer equipment upstairs in the Adidas Sportsplex at 550 Eckhardt Ave. in Penticton on Friday April 1 from 3-10 p.m. and Saturday April 2 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Every year SOYSA facilitates a cleat sale. Cleats are donated and offered to members at a reduced cost. If you have cleats to donate, drop them off between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. weekdays at 550 Eckhardt Avenue.
