Disturbances, mischief down in Oliver area Lyonel Doherty Oliver Chronicle Oliver RCMP saw fewer incidents of mischief, disturbances, and vehicle thefts last year compared to 2009. Even assault statistics are down. These were some of the incidents Sgt. Ken Harrington commented on during his policing report to Town Council on February 28. Harrington’s report shows there were 197 incidents of mischief in 2009, compared to 148 in 2010 (a decrease of 25 per cent). “Auto crime remains substantially lower in 2010 with a 45 per cent decline in thefts from vehicles and a 47 per cent decrease in stolen vehicles.” There were 47 vehicle thefts in 2009, compared to 25 last year. And police responded to 34 incidents of theft from vehicles in 2010, compared to 63 in 2009. Harrington said break and enter reports remain slightly higher (51) in 2010, compared to 45 in 2009. Last year there were 11 business break and enters and 26 residential break and enters, compared to 13 and 20 (respectively) in 2009. Assaults were down slightly in 2010, with a total of 109 incidents reported, compared to 115 in 2009. There was one robbery in 2009 and one in 2010. But there were no homicides in either year. Harrington said there are currently no prolific or chronic nuisance offenders in the Oliver area. Councillor Terry Schafer said the crime statistics are “promising” to see, but noted the recent murder of Reece Dillenger Louie is very unfortunate. Drug enforcement In the report, Harrington noted that Oliver RCMP investigated seven drug offences in the fourth quarter of 2010. One of these involved methamphetamine trafficking, while another involved cannabis trafficking. Charges have been laid against suspects in both cases. He noted that a small 25-plant grow operation was located in a residence on 97 Street on October 1. Traffic enforcement Between October and December of 2010, local RCMP charged five drivers with impaired driving and related offences in Oliver. In addition, 10 drivers were given 90-day immediate roadside prohibitions (IRPs) and two drivers were given 72-hour suspensions under the new impaired driving legislation, which began September 20.

District mourns death of TEN principal Medical personnel are still working to determine how Tuc-el-Nuit Elementary School principal Chris Hambleton died in his home last Friday. He was 43. “This is a devastating loss to our entire school community and district, said Okanagan Similkameen board chair June Harrington. “Chris cared deeply about his students and was a friend, mentor, and role model to staff and administrators in this district.”


Residents come to the rescue of a stranded deer on Tuc-el-Nuit Lake.

Harrington said he made endless contributions outside his administrative role, including Choirfest, Band-a-Rama, and the library system. Hambleton had a distinguished career in the district, including teaching duties in Osoyoos and Cawston. He was appointed principal at Tuc-el-Nuit in 2009. Teachers and counsellors began working with affected students and parents on Monday.

Public becoming more aware of IRPs as police crack down on drunk drivers Harrington said IRPs are “alive and well” in the South Okanagan, adding they are making roads safer. But he did acknowledge the new legislation has impacted local pub and restaurant owners in terms of alcohol sales. However, he remains optimistic that business will return to previous levels once people become acclimatized to and accept the new drinking laws. Like the seatbelt law, which is widely accepted, people will go through a transition period of accepting the new alcohol consumption limits in relation to operating vehicles, Harrington told Council. Schafer asked Harrington if there was any evidence indicating general compliance with the new legislation. “I do see some evidence myself. People seem to be more wary about what they consume before driving.” Harrington agreed, saying the public is becoming more aware of the consequences of impaired driving, particularly when IRPs are involved. The officer said two areas that traffic services focus on are speeding and cell phone use. He advised that drivers stay off their cell phones or use Bluetooth technology for hands-free communication. Councillor Jack Bennest said a number of people are still using cell phones while driving, which is just as dangerous as operating a vehicle while impaired. Mayor Pat Hampson said he sees professional truck drivers using cell phones, which is even “scarier.” Harrington mirrored this comment, saying anyone who drives an 18-wheel vehicle while talking on a cell phone is

putting the public at increased risk. Harrington told Council that local RCMP are focusing on three priorities: traffic safety, youth at risk, and organized crime. He noted that members have partnered up with Oliver and Osoyoos high schools for enforcement education. In addition, a number of members are actively involved in local parent advisory councils, and DARE (drug abuse resistance education) programs continue in the schools. Schafer thanked Harrington for his involvement in the Restorative Justice program, which has processed two files. Harrington said Citizens on Patrol and SpeedWatch have been instrumental in assisting the RCMP by being the “ears and eyes” in the community. “Their commitment is valued and appreciated by the detachment.” In total, South Okanagan RCMP responded to 5,784 calls in 2010, compared to 5,923 in 2009 (a decrease of two per cent). Crime Stoppers received three tips relating to events in Oliver during the fourth quarter of 2010. These tips contributed to one arrest being made and charges pending. In total, the dollar amount of property recovered and drugs seized in Oliver and Osoyoos was more than $4,000. It was noted that Cpl. Van Every and Cst. Minkley delivered a presentation on drug use and drug dealing indicators to the Osoyoos Indian Band chief and council.

Election officers appointed

Council briefs

The Town has appointed Heather Piotz as the Chief Election Officer and Linda Schultz as the Deputy Chief Election Officer for the 2011 election. Piotz has been actively involved in conducting several past elections and possesses the most experience among existing staff in operating electronic ballot counting equipment. Election day is Saturday, Nov. 19. Mandatory advance voting day is Wednesday, Nov. 2. Council discussed the possibility of mail-in ballots, but decided against it because the Town doesn’t have the staff to organize that. “We’re short staffed in corporate services, so I don’t think we should burden ourselves with mail-in ballots,” Councillor Michael Newman said.

Council supports Via 97

Council has approved spending $1,000 for a two-day workshop in June to support “Via 97.” What’s that? The Via 97 international alliance consists of partners from Canada and the US (from Salmon Arm to Leavenworth, WA). The alliance

recognizes the significance of the highway and the economic health of the communities along its route. The mission of Via 97 is to promote this unique region, with the partners teaching each other about new approaches to trade, tourism and economic development. The workshop will be held at Spirit Ridge in Osoyoos.

It’s time to clean up

The Town is hoping to get cooperation from two property owners in the cleanup of their buildings. Councillor Jack Bennest said they would like to see the south face of the Fields building repainted. It was noted that the owner is open to the idea. The other building the Town wants to see cleaned up is the Cooper building, next to the former Mesa Hotel. Bennest said this building appears to be tied up in an insurance claim. Council approved a motion to write and phone these business owners to ask for their cooperation.

Building permits ‘boom’

The total value of construction in January was $1.2 million.

Sister City trip scheduled

Councillor Terry Schafer reported that four people are slated to visit Oliver’s Sister City of Bandai, Japan this spring. Bob Grant (from the Parks and Recreation Society) and his wife will be chaperoning Oliver Ambassadors Juliana Martine and Rory Lodge. Schafer noted the youth ambassadors have been fundraising tirelessly for the trip. He added that Grant will be paying his own fare to Bandai.

Most wanted arrested The RCMP do get their man . . . with help from the public. Acting on anonymous tips, police recently arrested Marcus Sheena, one of BC’s most wanted men. He was located at a home near Oliver on the Osoyoos Indian Band reserve. Police say Sheena is a chronic offender in the Oliver and Penticton area. He was wanted for breaching his probation conditions, in which he was charged with assault with a weapon. According to the RCMP, Sheena attempted to obtain money from the victim, and when the victim refused Sheena choked out the victim. Sheena has a lengthy criminal record with 27 convictions including robbery, break and enter, assault with a weapon and multiple fail to comply charges. Chainsaw vandal destroys trees Police are looking for assistance in catching the culprit(s) responsible for vandalizing at least three trees with a chainsaw last Friday night. “Someone went on a chainsaw massacre,” said Town Foreman Dave Janzen. He noted the brazen vandal(s) cut down a small tree near Murphy’s Pub on Main Street, a larger tree (that fell on a fence) in Centennial RV Park, and an even larger tree on 362 Avenue near the arena. Janzen said they had some vandalism to trees last year, but this is the first time someone took a chainsaw and purposely cut down healthy trees. It is hoped that someone heard the noise or saw something and will relay that information to the police at 250-498-3422.

Dry eyes? Many people suffer from dry eye and it is more common with increased age. The symptoms include the sensation of having a foreign body in the eye and often the eye is watery. At an eye exam your optometrist may note that your tears are a poor quality or evaporate faster than they should; there may even be dry flaky patches on the front of the eye (keratitis.) The most common treatment is liberal use of artificial tears. Some people may have an adverse reaction to the preservatives in a bottle of artificial tears and, thus, need to use non-preserved ones that come packaged in daily doses.

REQUEST FOR EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST For Poundkeeper Services The Town of Oliver is seeking interested parties to perform the services of a kennel operator to serve as the municipality’s Poundkeeper. Existing kennel operators and persons wishing to establish a new kennel for storing municipally-impounded animals are encouraged to consider this opportunity. The successful proponent would be required to store impounded dogs and possibly cats on their appropriately zoned premises, collect applicable storage and impoundment fees, and sell municipal licenses to owners trying to reclaim their unlicensed animals. In addition, the Poundkeeper will be responsible for arranging for destruction of unclaimed animals after a time period prescribed in the Animal Control bylaw. As a matter of interest, the Town of Oliver has historically impounded from 12 to 15 dogs per year. Payments have historically been based on boarding costs per animal per day. Interested parties are asked to submit their expression of interest in writing to: Town of Oliver, 35016 - 97th Street, PO Box 638, Oliver, BC, V0H 1T0 or via e-mail to on or before March 21, 2011.

Purpose of the Winery: To sell growers’ surplus grapes to wineries after fermentation and storage as “VQA Wine”.


Assuming that the Okanagan vineyards currently planted remain in production, a surplus of grapes is calculated to occur over the next few years. Whereas many growers will not be affected by this, some growers may benefit from the protection of converting these grapes into premium wine and extending their marketing window. Utilizing a contribution from the Cooperative Development Initiative (CDI) a small group of agriculture professionals has, with the support of a few vineyard growers, confirmed the surplus projections, prepared a business plan and developed the documentation to facilitate the formation of a “VQA Wine Cooperative Winery” able to address some of this surplus. The economics of this venture require many growers working together, forming a cooperative, electing a Board and committing to the process. A meeting of growers, who wish to learn more, will be held in the

Time to expand enforcement


udos to Council for opening up a new can of worms by planning to go after other “unsightly” premises in Oliver. We were beginning to think the Town was only concerned about Wendy Cassel’s property, making her quite the celebrity. In fact, we’re surprised that American television producers haven’t knocked on her door with offers of a reality TV show. A great title that comes to mind is “Don’t Mess With My Yard.” But really, why should Wendy get all the attention when there are several other owners whose properties are truly an eyesore? The Town and its bylaw enforcement officers have a tough job telling people their properties are deemed unsightly. The term is subjective and open to debate, and you don’t want to come across as a dictator. But residents do have a responsibility to keep their real estate fairly clean and tidy. Messy piles of debris and other “junk” are not nice to look at and give the impression that owners don’t care, which gives the public the impression that the Town doesn’t care. Soon you have unsightly premises sprouting up like dandelions, which are hard to get rid of if you let them get out of control. Living next door to a messy property must be very stressful, especially if you’re trying to sell your home or enjoy an evening on your patio. It also doesn’t make for friendly neighbourhood relationships. The Town was wise to break out of the mould of reacting only to immediate neighbours’ complaints. Now, if staff members drive by a property they deem unsightly (under criteria in the Property Maintenance Bylaw), the Town can proceed with action. (By the way, Cassel has told the Town she plans to comply with the clean-up order by the March 14 deadline.) In other enforcement news, the Town will definitely have to do something to deal with dogs at large in Oliver. Some of these dogs are left behind by transient fruit pickers, leading us to think this situation should be regulated somehow. Because there is no impoundment facility, bylaw officers feel compelled to care for these dogs in their own homes. This is neither fair nor acceptable. Why should their lives be burdened by someone else’s pet? We’re hoping an individual will step forward to help the Town by establishing a pound. But if nobody comes forward, the onus is on the Town to provide the facility. Ah, the joys of bylaw enforcement and the trappings that come with it. The Oliver Chronicle welcomes letters to the editor.

OK Falls needs more amenities Editor, Oliver Chronicle: After residing in Okanagan Falls for a time, it has come to my attention we do not have a community centre, a Safeway grocery store and an official town office building for Okanagan Falls regional development and other town administration and modern medical offices. What with the rising cost of vehicle fuel to travel to and

from Penticton or Oliver it would seem to me residents of Okanagan Falls do not have relevant facilities to provide for the health of their young people and future citizens. I highly recommend private investment initiatives and supportive provincial and federal government support for this community soon. GG Schramm, Okanagan Falls

Let’s leave Mother Nature alone Editor, Oliver Chronicle: When will people learn that screwing with Mother Nature never works. We need to leave our heirloom seeds alone. Everyone should read Michael Pollan’s book the “Omnivores Dilemma.” He has condensed countless articles on what our food industry has become. Just the plain hard facts, warning - it doesn't make for lighthearted reading. The plants that aren’t genetically modified and are grown without pesticides and herbicides have been shown to have up to 30 per cent more antioxidants. This is because these plants have to create their own chemicals to

fight off pests and weeds. When you change even one given property of a plant - you change the whole plant because everything worked synergistically together as a whole. That is why the food industry is adding omega 3s and trying to fortify our foods with all sorts of missing vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, etc. We have to change our way of thinking and realize we can do something about it. Everyone has to consume so just vote with your dollars, buy as much organic as you can, and for goodness sake we live in the “valley of heaven” so shop locally. Eat apples from the Okanagan, not Australia. Leann Parrent , Oliver

Town needs to rethink contract Editor, Oliver Chronicle: This is in regards to the new contract for our garbage collection. As someone who has been in this town for five years, I felt I needed to voice concern about the direction the Town is heading in terms of drawing families. When I first moved here, garbage collection was two containers, now it is one. When I complained, it was cited that this was to encourage composting. Although I felt it was a decision based on ignorance to what families actually need and really only suited two-person households, the restriction for the glass recycling collection has now been completely banished and I am very concerned about this. Touting being a greener town five years ago, making a more restrictive collection schedule only causes people to throw away their glass. Now, there will be no glass collection at all? And no plastic bags for “unlimited yard col-

lection?” Seriously? How is that unlimited? How many containers am I to purchase and store to help me collect my leaves, yard debris and pruning? Again, I pay the same taxes as ever, yet the services shrink to nothing the longer I live here. This on top of water charges changing is making families more burdened. If we want to see our schools stop shrinking, we need to keep in mind how we treat families in this community. Piling up over 500 children in an elementary school not suited for that number (the gym couldn't even fit the whole school) is another result of how we are not attracting families. How does the garbage change affect the school population shrinking? Making Oliver a place where families, single parent or otherwise, are welcomed and accommodated will go far to make long lasting viable change. We need to rethink this BFI contract.

He said that he would go on fighting relentless critic of the blasphemy laws – them even if he was the last man standing and since Taseer’s murder she has lived in

hiding, moving every few days. But she will not shut up until they shut her up. And that’s it. The rest of the country’s political and cultural elite have gone silent, or pander openly to the fanatics and the bigots. The PPP was committed to changing the blasphemy laws only six months ago, but after Taseer was killed President Asif Ali Zardari assured a gathering of Islamic dignitaries that he had no intention of reviewing the blasphemy laws. Although they are very bad laws. In 1984 General Zia ul-Haq, the dictator who ruled Pakistan from 1977 to 1988, made it a criminal offence for members of the Ahmadi sect, now some 5 million strong, to claim that they were Muslims. In 1986 he instituted the death penalty for blasphemy against the Prophet Muhammad. No subsequent government has dared to repeal these laws, which are widely used to victimise the Ahmadi and Christian religious minorities. Ahmadis and Christians account for at most 5 percent of Pakistan’s population, but almost half of the thousand people charged under this law since 1986 belonged to those communities. Most accusations were false, arising from disputes over land, but once made they could be a death sentence. Higher courts generally dismissed blasphemy charges, recognising that they were a tactic commonly used against Christians and Ahmadis in local disputes over land, but 32 people who were freed by the

courts were subsequently killed by Islamist vigilantes – as were two of the judges who freed them. The current crisis arose when a Christian woman, Aasia Bibi, was sentenced to death last November, allegedly for blaspheming against the Prophet Muhammad. Pakistan’s liberals mobilised against the blasphemy law – and discovered that they were an endangered species. The murders of Salman Taseer and Shahbaz Bhatti were bad, but even worse was the way that the political class and the bulk of the mass media responded. A majority of a population fully supports the blasphemy law, making it very costly for politicians to act against it even if the fanatics don’t kill them. Political cowardice reigns supreme, and so Pakistan falls slowly under the thrall of the extremists. Being a democracy is no help, it turns out, because democracy requires people to have the courage of their convictions. Very few educated Pakistanis believe that people should be executed because of a blasphemy charge arising out of some trivial village dispute, but they no longer dare to say so. Including the president. “We will not be intimidated nor will we retreat,” said Zardari on 3 March, but he has already promised the beards that the blasphemy law will not be touched. Nor is it very likely that the murderers of Taseer or Bhatti will be tracked down and punished. You could get killed trying to do that.

Residents come together to rescue deer on lake Jim Wyse Special to the Chronicle We had some excitement on Tuc-el-Nuit Lake on the morning of February 26. I noticed an object on the lake, which when looking through the binoculars turned out to be a deer that had somehow managed to get out to the middle of the lake on the ice. How he had travelled that far is hard to understand because he could not walk on the ice. He would attempt to stand every so often, but his hooves just slipped from under him and it became quite apparent that he could not move. After struggling for a while he would

simply lie down, curl up and quit trying. I phoned the conservation people who were not willing or able to help due to the danger of going on the broken ice. We really thought we were going to have to watch this poor creature die out there. It was really very cold on that Saturday with a stiff breeze as well. At one point in the afternoon, a bald eagle glided in and landed close to the deer, probably sensing a meal one day soon. There was no change all day Saturday and Sunday; we woke up to the same scene. The deer was still looking around from his position lying on the ice. However, at about 11 a.m. three fellows in a small boat paddled over from our side

of the lake, which had very little ice at the shoreline. Another fellow was in his red kayak. When the boat got close to the deer the rescue team determined that the ice at the edge was very solid, so they stepped out of the boat, put a loop around the deer's neck, pulled him into the water and then guided him back to our shore which took about five minutes in freezing water. Upon reaching land the poor deer appeared to be in a catatonic state of shock and he just lay on the ground motionless with his eyes open. Several helpers gave him a good rub with many towels and after about 20 minutes they moved him up onto drier ground, cov-

ered him up and left him alone. He wasstill motionless, but his eyes were open and he was warm. I checked back about an hour later (about 1 p.m.) and he still had not moved. But two hours later he had got up and moved closer to the water's edge. Not wanting to scare him back into the water, we left him again, but before leaving, another neighbour tossed some apples and carrots in his direction. When I returned about 4 p.m. he was gone, the apples and carrots were half eaten, so I assumed he was in reasonably good shape considering what had to be a very uncomfortable couple of days and nights.

Caring residents put their safety at risk to rescue a stranded deer on Tuc-el-Nuit Lake recently. They managed to tie a rope around the deer and bring it to shore, where it was warmed up and given some food. It later left the area on its own.

The subject of this letter is the helicopter flight training school proposed for the Oliver airport. I offer you my viewpoint for your consideration. First, to some, any opposition to the planned flight school is anti-business. I disagree. It is a review of a special interest group’s “wants” in which, if successful, will make them a great deal of money, but at whose expense? That said, the rest of the story. We have two types of aircraft operating off the Oliver airport, fixed wing and rotary wing. Fixed wing is an aircraft where the wing is attached to the body of the plane. In general, they take off and return to land. They do not stay within the area; they fly to parts unknown and return to home base at the end of their flight plan. In rotary wing aircraft, the wing rotates above the plane (helicopter) to lift the aircraft and that wing has variable pitch settings which are adjusted to the needs of the aircraft to lift and fly. This is an oversimplified explanation between the two types of aircraft but sufficient for my needs in this letter. Now let’s examine what a helicopter flight school could possibly mean to Oliver and I will use the licensing requirements for automobiles as a comparison. First, to get a motor vehicle licence, one has to get a learner’s permit and practice with a knowledgeable driver or driving instructor until they are ready to take the driver’s test. In a helicopter flight school, they do something similar. They have ground school to learn the rules of the air and they have a flight instructor to teach the student how to fly a helicopter. And that helicopter, the beginner’s version, is what I will call a “whisperer.” This is usually a two-person aircraft, small and relatively quiet, hence the term “whisperer.” As in the motor vehicle world where there are multiple levels of licensing, there are multiple levels of licensing for various sizes of helicopters and this is where I see a problem for our community. The individuals who are proposing the flight school are businessmen and business men usually plan the expansion of their business and that is what I assume will take place. It is my understanding, they are proposing a flight school of “whisper type helicopters” which is not an insurmountable problem to the community, but what happens when the flight school is successful and they want to take it to the next

level, the business end of helicopters, the training of helicopter pilots for heavy lifters? What is a heavy lifter? It is a business helicopter which is designed to lift or carry heavy loads. They come in many sizes and shapes. They have much wider wings or rotors and as the width of the rotor grows, so does the noise level. Do you remember last summer when the firefighting helicopters were on the airport, they were heavy lifters. Remember that “whop, whop, whop” that you could hear all over town, that is what you will have day in and day out with a flight training school on the airport. It not only will be on the airport where the pilots are being trained to hover, lift and return heavy loads to the ground but all around our community to the mountainsides where it will echo for miles. Now that you can envision what could possibly take place during the day, envision what could happen when they move into “night flight endorsements.” You have a 24-hour a day operation, seven days a week. Helicopters coming, “whop, whop whop” and going, “whop, whop, whop,” possibly every minute of the night and day. Now based on what could possibly happen with a helicopter flight school here in Oliver, think about what people come to Oliver for, the tourist trade. It’s the ambiance of the valley, our lifestyle, the orchards, the vineyards, the open air vineyard restaurants, the bicycling, the healthy living that we all have promoted to attract people to our community. Now add a level of noise pollution over every square inch of the area, does it give you pause to stop and think? We all know what the wind machines in the orchards and vineyards sound like in the spring and fall; imagine a noise similar to that but much louder, possibly 24 hours a day. Is the aforementioned scenario possible? Yes it is with anyone of a hundred different possibilities. If you have thoughts on this issue, make it a priority to be heard. Talk to the mayor, talk to Town Council, make your thoughts and opinions known. If this issue moves forward through the various levels in a successful fashion, it will affect every man, woman and child in our community for a lifetime. Maybe the question to be asked is, “Why do other communities locate their airports as far away from the centre of their communities as they can? Could it possibly be the noise factor? Brian Amos, Oliver

Council approves removing hazardous trees Lyonel Doherty Oliver Chronicle Two silver maple trees deemed hazardous to the public at the Oliver Museum have been cut down. Council approved this recommendation by Public Works staff at the February 28 Committee of the Whole meeting. A report by foreman Dave Janzen outlined that the trees have been determined dangerous and require immediate removal. Cutting them down and replanting with appropriate tree species will cost approximately $2,800. Council agreed that staff should work with FortisBC to cut the cost and safely remove the trees that are near power lines. Director of Operations Shawn Goodsell said staff were at the museum on February 18 when they noticed problems with the silver maples. After seeking a professional opinion, it was determined the trees could cause serious injury to anyone passing by or sitting on the dedicated bench by the sidewalk. Goodsell said the trees have severe rot, and high winds could elevate the risk of large branches falling off and hitting someone. “These are nice shade and older visible trees that will surely be missed by the museum and the public. But we feel the risks outweigh this,” staff noted in the report. It was noted staff would like to replace the trees with a larger caliper tree. Councillor Jack Bennest said he’d like to see modern species replace the mature trees. He also favours a policy that keeps

Council in the loop when it comes to trees requiring removal. Ditto, said Municipal Manager Tom Szalay, who noted Council should be made aware before trees are removed. Councillor Terry Schafer said the $2,800 will be money well spent. Mayor Pat Hampson agreed, saying it’s prudent to do this before someone gets killed (like an individual did on a golf course in Kamloops). “We don’t need this kind of liability.” Goodsell said they were at the museum for an unrelated matter on February 18 when Janzen pointed out the potential hazard. On closer inspection, they saw a rotting hole through the center of the tree east of the museum. They also noticed severe cracking. An existing elm tree on the property has a vertical crack. Staff plan to “cable” this tree together in hopes it will extend the life of the tree by several years. It is believed this tree will eventually need to be replaced. It was ironic that the Town had to remove the hazardous trees after learning that vandals cut down at least three healthy trees last weekend. Staff were shocked and disgusted to learn that someone with a chainsaw purposely cut down one tree on Main Street, one tree in Centennial RV Park and one tree on 362 Ave. Janzen said it would cost about $10,000 to replace these trees (to their original growth potential). Town horticulturalist Mark Jamieson was quite dismayed by this senseless act of vandalism.

Eat together, eat better Jill McDowell Special to the Chronicle It’s Nutrition Month again. This year’s theme is Celebrate Food . . . From Field to Table. So, instead of grabbing for the closest convenience food or wishing that eating and meal preparation didn’t have to take up so much of your valuable time, let’s learn to celebrate our food. We often hear about the importance of thinking about the path food travels to reach our plates but,have you thought about the location of your plate? Are you standing alone in the kitchen while you eat? Are you sitting in front television glued to the news? Or are you sitting with the members of your household enjoying a meal together over relaxing conversation? If you’re like most people, the latter scenario is not a daily event. There are many positive reasons why we should all make a whole-hearted effort to share a meal each day with our loved ones. Eating together has been linked to healthier eating habits for both adults and children, reduced risk of becoming overweight, better school performance in children and stronger family relationships. There are a number of other reasons why sharing mealtimes can be difficult. You may be thinking – I don’t know how to cook; I don’t have enough time; My children like to eat different foods; well the

good news is there are ways to overcome these roadblocks: Learn the basics – If you don’t know much about cooking, start with a few easy recipes and work your way up. And remember some of the most delicious meals happen by accident! Keep it simple – The meal doesn’t have to resemble something you would order at a five-star restaurant. For simple recipe ideas visit Include the whole family – Short on time? Give each member of the household a job and cut down on the amount of time needed for meal prep. Peeling the carrots and setting the table are perfect tasks for the little ones in the family. Give each child a night per week to plan a meal – Set some guidelines around healthy food choices and see what comes to the table! Your child will take more ownership for meal times and will be able to guarantee their favourites will make it to the table at least once a week. Here is my challenge to you: for the month of March arm yourself with the above tips and try to increase the number of meals your family eats together each week by two. See if it makes a difference in the types of foods you are eating and the quality of your relationships. Bon appetite! (Jill McDowell is a UBC Dietetic Intern with Interior Health.)

Following a scoreless second period, Thierry Martine put the Coyotes ahead 2-1 just over five minutes into the third. Mind you, it was Martine’s slashing penalty in the dying minutes that gave Revelstoke a powerplay and with only 2:24 left in regulation time, the visitors notched the equalizer, sending things to sudden death. Overtime lasted all of a-minute-27. That’s when the red hot Corey Allen won a battle behind the Grizzlies’ net and banked a shot off of Tory Caldwell for the decisive marker, creating a frenzy of both his own bench and the Sun Bowl faithful. After a disappointing effort the night before in which he was actually pulled, Kyle Laslo returned to his former self on Monday in earning the victory between the pipes, stopping 25 of 27 shots. With the series even at one, the scene now shifts to the Revelstoke Forum for Games Three and Four, Wednesday and Thursday night respectively. Game Five is back in Osoyoos on Saturday at 8 p.m.

No pound may bite Town of Oliver in butt Lyonel Doherty Oliver Chronicle Sooner or later, Oliver will have to address the issue of dogs at large or else it might bite the Town in the butt. That was the message that Mayor Pat Hampson left with Council on February 28 after a discussion about bylaw enforcement in 2010. Hampson said bylaw officers are taking dogs home because there is no pound facility in Oliver. This was corroborated by Steve Marshall of Marshall and Daniels Security, which provides bylaw enforcement for the Town. “Officers have been keeping animals at their residence due to low vacancy space at the Penticton SPCA,” said Marshall in his 2010 semi annual report to Council. Marshall said officers are looking forward to an animal control impoundment facility in Oliver. We have to face the Hampson said people eventuality of an have been complainimpoundment faciling about dogs at large ity or say that we’re in the community. “We not going to pick have to face the eventuality (of an impoundup dogs.

Councillor Marji Basso said the Town is not interested in building a facility and maintaining it, so it wants to see if anyone is willing to take on this project. In his report, Marshall said there was an increase in animal control because of the overabundance of fruit pickers residing in town last summer. “This increase was in part due to the closure of Strawberry Creek Road in Osoyoos, which displaced many transient fruit pickers and their dogs.” In July of 2010, 11 written warnings and six verbal warnings were given to people for having dogs off their leash. In August, 15 verbal warnings were given for this problem. In other enforcement news, 28 written warnings and 10 verbal warnings were given to motorists in September regarding no-stop zones at schools. Marshall said parking patrol has been stepped up at both elementary schools due to a high volume of complaints received. Focal areas are vehicles blocking driveways and parking in no-stopping zones. “Officer presence within the school zones has yielded very good response with respect to these areas.” In December, snow removal flyers were handed out to all business owners as a reminder of what is expected by the Town during snowfall. Marshall said businesses generally complied, and consistent patrols helped in this compliance. Continued on Pg B2...

Wine barrel planters replaced in spring Work is underway to replace the wine barrel flower planters on Main Street with new concrete ones. Director of Operations Shawn Goodsell said the existing planters are deteriorating and prone to vandalism. So the the plan is to establish new ones made of aggregate. This will cut down on maintenance and staff shouldn’t have to worry about vandals, Goodsell said.

Town Foreman Dave Janzen said the planters should be in place before the May long weekend. He also noted the Town’s new banners will be erected this spring.

Town eying other untidy properties for inspection Bylaw enforcement officers allocated additional hours to unsightly premises violations in preparation for Communities In Bloom. Marshall stated this issue has required more time because of the change allowing more than immediate neighbours to file complaints against messy properties. In the next few months, friendly reminders about unsightly premises will be sent out to owners. Marshall said three cases have been sent to Public Works to clean up. For example, Wendy Cassel of 77 Street has been given a deadline of March 14 to clean up her property deemed unsightly by neighbours and the Town. If she doesn’t comply, the Town will enter the property and remove all the materials in question. She will also be responsible for paying for the cleanup. If it’s not paid by December 31,

Hampson asked if the Town was pursuing other unsightly premises for compliance. “We have identified a couple of others that are next on the list,” Szalay said. Hampson said the Town shouldn’t just be focusing on the Cassel property, but others that have been deemed messy. Marshall said the hike and bike trail has become a topic of complaints as well. Therefore, bylaw officers will be focusing their attention on educating the public about care and control of dogs and picking up feces.

known for its carbon toll on the environment. Wyse pointed to a 2005 United Kingdom study by the Department Food and Rural Affairs, which proved that British tomato growers emit twopoint-four metric tonnes of carbon monoxide for each tonne of tomatoes grown, compared to zero-point-six metric tonnes of carbon dioxide for each tonne of Spanish tomatoes. “The difference is the British tomatoes are produced in heated greenhouses,” he said. And that brings him to the familiar issue of noise pollution. He is the first to acknowledge that wineries are guilty of it at certain times of the year when their wind machines are in operation. Noise is an integral and inevitable part of a farming community but he believed its existence should be geared towards what is reasonable to expect from an agricultural operation. “A typical wind machine on vineyards operates sporadically during frost events for 10 to 15 days a year; they typically run from 3 a.m. until sunrise. That is much different than [running cooling fans] all summer long on the hottest days starting at 7 p.m.,” he noted, especially of those structures cover 75 per cent of a parcel size.

‘Relay for Life’ scheduled for June 4 Carole Bissonnette Special to the Chronicle The Osoyoos-Oliver committee has managed to change some things for the 2011 Canadian Cancer Society's Relay for Life. The relay is now noon to midnight on Saturday, June 4 at Desert Park, Osoyoos. Registration forms will be coming soon and available at the Sonora Centre. You can also register anytime on line at The 2010 relay raised over $38,000 and we hope to match

or beat that this year. Fees do apply. If anyone is interested in joining the committee we are looking for new members. Contact Sarah at the Sonora Community Centre at 250-495-4623. We meet a couple times a month for about an hour to plan the event so it’s not a huge time commitment. We need bodies to help with logistics, set-up, team calling, security, luminaries and more. It is always advantageous to have new people involved as they bring a fresh perspective and energy to the meetings and the event.

Smile of the week

Aidan would love to be a fly in his brother’s room What is your most important value and why? Respect and honesty because treating people nice is good. I think it’s good if you can be trusted and trust other people. Why did you choose to live in this town? I didn’t. My parents moved here 20 years ago because it’s the warmest place in Canada. I am really happy I live here.

What would make Oliver a nicer community? More parks, indoor swimming pool and a bowling alley.

What is the perfect day for you in Oliver? Lots of fresh snow, tobogganing and skiing.

Do you have a goal in life? To travel lots, and learn how to scuba dive.

What community issues need the most attention? Is there any issues that need attention?

If you had one super power, what would it be? To fly.

What would be your ideal job? A teacher.

If you won the $50 million Max lottery, what would you do with the money? I would travel lots, and put lots of it for charity. If you were the mayor of Oliver, what would you do? Take down some buildings, put in more green areas, orchards and vineyards. Make a bus that goes through town. Make an indoor and outdoor swimming pool. Clean out the lakes. Try to make people not drive cars as much. If you were a fly, which wall in town would you like to inhabit? In my brother’s room.

Public urged to speak up An important forum is being planned to gather public input in preparation for the renewing of operating orders controlling lake levels on Osoyoos Lake. For more information on the September 18-20 forum visit:  Water levels on Osoyoos Lake are controlled by agreement between the US and Canada. The agreement is up for renewal in 2013. In preparation for the renewal, a

number of studies are being conducted for the International Joint Commission and Osoyoos Lake Board of Control. Of interest to the Okanagan Basin Water Board is that one of these studies suggests that minimum flow rates also be negotiated. Directors believe mandating flow rates could potentially impact the Okanagan, including water for fish.

CETA will steamroll farmers and stymie municipalities Wendy Johnson Special to the Chronicle Federal NDP agriculture critic called it “NAFTA on steroids”; the National Farmers’ Union president, Terry Boehm slammed it as a “Corporate Bill of Rights”. The Dairy Farmers of Canada organization cautioned it would not only affect agricultural supply management and import control programs, but would impede Canada’s credibility in any future World Trade Organization negotiations (House of Commons Standing Committee on International Trade). “It” is the Comprehensive and Economic Trade Agreement (CETA) being negotiated in relative secrecy between Canada and the European Union. “This agreement isn’t so much about trade as it is about control,” stated Atamanenko, adding that discussions are ongoing with the participants hoping to have a rough document ready later this year. So far there is no indication a public debate is planned before the agreement is signed. Atamanenko said everything is on the negotiating table; there will be no sacred cows with respect to CETA. EU multinationals would not only have the right to bid on Canadian core municipal services, they could prevent municipalities from restricting their tendering preference to Canadian companies. Foreign companies bidding on public contracts wouldn’t have to give preference to local or Canadian goods, services or workers. “It disallows any restrictions on the export or import of resources or commodities and for the first time it applies right down to the municipal level. It is an international trade agreement that will force compliance federally, provincially and municipally,” said Boehm. For instance CETA would “prohibit municipalities from using procurement for sustainable development purposes, such as promoting food security or adopting local food practices.” And what impact would that have on the growing popularity of the 100 Mile Diet and the push to have people purchase locally grown produce? Boehm, who has been fighting against CETA for more than a year, answered, “Local food systems are jeopardized because you will be expressly forbidden to favour local businesses. This will have huge consequences for every aspect of social, economic and environmental life in this country. This goes beyond anything we’ve seen in agreements thus far; it fundamentally alters the purpose of government, because they will only be there to rubber stamp. Governments will be totally restricted from acting in the public interest and courts will become a vehicle for multinational corporations.” If CETA is ratified, Canadian farmers will have to get used to terms such as Enforcement Measures for Intellectual Property Rights and the UPOV ’91 version of Plant

Breeders Rights. The first would give corporations wide retribution powers against any farmer deemed to have infringed on the company’s intellectual property rights; the second would eliminate farmers’ rights to save, reuse or sell seed. To sceptics who doubt those consequences, Boehm refers them to CETA’s IPR Chapter (Article 19, paragraph 3, page 252), which states: In the case of infringement committed on a commercial scale… the judicial authorities may order the precautionary seizure of the moveable and immoveable property of the alleged infringer, including blocking his/her bank accounts and other assets. “And this is before anyone has their day in court. If a farmer was alleged to have a gene contaminating his crop he could have his farm, equipment, land and crops seized. And any third party alleged to have assisted in the alleged infringement would also see their property seized and/or destroyed. The only thing corporations will need is a few public examples and the food system will be taken over; farmers will just buckle under and plant what they’re told, for fear of losing everything.” Atamanenko said access to our water is also driving the European agenda, but he doesn’t see Canada gaining much in return. “They are pushing for the same Chapter 11 we have in NAFTA, which will allow them to sue if they don’t get equal rights.” But it doesn’t end there. “While the Europeans are very protective of their agriculture industry, the same consideration won’t be given to ours in terms of supply management. We have a quota system where you can import up to about five per cent of our total chicken production without duty. After that we have over-quota tariffs. “The Europeans would like to increase that import threshold to 10 per cent, so there is pressure on Canada to modify its supply management system and bring down those over-quota tariffs. If that happens, each dairy producer here stands to lose.” On the other hand, the EU pork industry’s quota remains at point-five per cent before those over-quota tariffs kick in, and Atamanenko doesn’t see them budging on that. CETA will gut farm support programs too. Article 10, paragraph 6, page 20 states: The Parties agree to cooperate in WTO agriculture negotiations in order to achieve a substantial reduction of production and trade distorting domestic support. Are there agricultural benefits to signing on to CETA? Neither Atamanenko nor Boehm thinks so. To those who believe the trade deal will open EU markets to Canadian-grown genetically engineered foods, they point to the fact that European GE regulations are exempted from CETA’s provisions (Article 3, Appendix 1b, page 50). As a market access agreement, CETA fails, they concluded.

Beloved husband to Ingrid of 22 years; dear father to Caleb, Jo-Anna, Andrew, Matthew, Jim and Karen. Remembered always by his five grandchildren and three greatgrandchildren. Peter worked as a care aid worker at Country Squire Retirement Village, Osoyoos and served five years in the Royal Canadian Navy.

Graham Funeral Home 34616 - 99th Street, Oliver (250) 498-3833

Joseph George Roe It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Joseph George Roe. George, aged 78 years, passed away peacefully at home on Friday, February 25, 2011. He was predeceased by his parents, Harry and Olive (Ferriss) Roe, brother and sister-in-law, Jim and Elizabeth Roe; sisters, Eva Roe, Grace Zimmer and Mabel Cranwell; and son-in-law, Douglas Kinley. Surviving to mourn George’s death and cherish his memory are his loving wife, Daune; daughter, Janet Kinley; son, Tim (Joan) Roe; special friend, Jack; granddaughter, Kathryn Kinley (Wes Grycki); sister, Ilene (Ab) McFadyen; brother-in-law, Frank Zimmer; brotherin-law, Bill Cranwell; mother and father-in-law, Marjorie and Edwin Olson; brother-in-law, Lane (Tanga) Olson; sister-in-law, Beverly (Keith) Peacock; as well as numerous nieces, nephews, and greatnieces and nephews. Also mourning are a host of aunts, uncles and cousins as well as lifelong friends. George and his wife retired to Oliver in 1992 where he built their current home. They loved to travel and spent many hours on the road with their fifth wheel trailer in both Canada and the United States. They also flew to various countries and always took pleasure in getting to know people and attempting to learn their language and customs. George was a pilot and even after he sold the airplane he enjoyed reminiscing about his ‘flyboy’ days. ‘Once a pilot, always a pilot’. George was a man of many talents. His hands were never idle. He was adept at woodworking, whether it was building houses, making furniture or cabinets or small shelves and knick-knacks for their home. There did not seem to be any project he was afraid to tackle. He attended night school to learn many trades from upholstery to welding. George’s most recent passion was stained glass. He had a studio set up at home where he wiled away the winter days making beautiful stained glass lamps, windows and suncatchers. Running the Kubota tractor and backhoe was another favourite pastime. George was always on the lookout for another project where he could use his tractor. Sports in general were a great source of entertainment for George, particularly curling, hockey and football. George loved to be outdoors and spent many happy hours riding his bicycle along the bike path in Oliver, always stopping for a rest and a snack by the river, appreciating the sights and sounds of nature. He and his wife often walked along the lakeshore in Osoyoos then sat on a bench, sipped coffee and enjoyed the fresh air and sunshine. No service by request. A private committal will be held at the Oliver Cemetery with a Celebration of Life to be held at a later date. Donations gratefully accepted to the Canadian Diabetes Association, 1589 Sutherland Avenue, Kelowna, BC V1Y 5Y7 or the Heart and Stroke Foundation, 4 – 1551 Sutherland Avenue, Kelowna, BC V1Y 9M9. Condolences and tributes may be directed to the family by visiting

Arthur David O’Keefe 1921 - 2011

Art’s generous but frail heart has finally stopped beating. He will be greatly missed by his loving wife Vera, heartbroken daughter, Laurine (Michael) and long-time caregiver, Sherry Skaros. Predeceased by his beloved son, Ken. Art spent his working lifetime caring for others by serving in the medical corps to provide ambulance service in France and Holland, at the Royal Columbian Hospital as an orderly and in the Provincial Gaol system as a guard and practical nurse. As founding and lifetime members of the Surrey Quilter’s Guild, Art and Vera designed and sewed many beautiful quilts. They made many friends and travelled widely while with the Surrey Square Wheelers before moving to Oliver. Art was an active member of the Oliver Senior’s Centre for almost 30 years and a life member of the Oliver and District Heritage Society. Card games were his joy and a win at bingo made his day. Thank you to Dr. Mark Hamilton for all you have done, for so many years, to make Art your miracle patient and to the staff at Heritage House who took such wonderful care of Art and fulfilled his wish to die there. Donations to the Salvation Army, 2463 South Main Street, Penticton, BC V2A 5J1 or the Oliver Food Bank, PO Box 405, Oliver, BC V0H 1T0 would be appreciated. No service by request. Condolences may be directed to the family by visiting www.

OBITUARY In loving memory

Eleanor Roberta McLean (Knox/Becker) Nov. 20, 1922 - Feb. 18, 2011

Mrs. Becker passed peacefully in Penticton, British Columbia, Canada with her son, Ric at her side, holding her hand and singing softly. Predeceased by Dr. Richard Knox and Leonard Becker and brother Gordon. Lovingly remembered by her children, Richard Knox, Charles and Bruce Becker and Martha Mehall and their families. Survived by Neil and Betty McLean and Helen Grant and the whole McLean Clan. Known affectionately as Bobby as a young woman she was a songbird as a debutant and sang for the troop shows in Winnipeg, Manitoba the place of her birth. She developed her independent nature and folksy royal heart on the Stevenson farm with her aunt and uncle in Gainesboro, Saskatchewan. She married her highschool sweetheart Dr. Richard Knox and they moved their young family to Dryden, Ontario, Edinburgh, Scotland, settling finally in Royal Oak, Michigan, USA in 1963. Dick Knox passed away in 1972. Through a series of synchronous events she met and married the love of her life Leonard Becker. They were a sun kissed, warm and charismatic couple. Len died tragically and unexpectedly in 1973. Eleanor carried on with a personal vigilance and self reliance. Growing her estate sale business as group sales director at the Birmingham Theatre and being of service to her community. She received the prestigious Salvation Army Award of Excellence. At 75 she drove herself across the North American continent visiting beloved relatives and friends on her way to retreat and a return to her roots in Canada in the Okanagan Valley, British Columbia. Loved and adored and the favourite of many. Known for her graciousness, her signature style, wit, wisdom and welcoming nature. Beautiful, with a singular elegance, she spoke her mind without reservation and specifically railed against man’s inhumanity to man. She was reading three books prior to her passing. Bill Clinton, My Life; The Thorn Birds (her own 1st edition) and The Quiet Mind of White Eagle. Her generosity and empathy allowed her to never be wary of strangers. You were a stranger but once. A connoisseur of the home-cooked meal, a vegetable gourmet and conversationalist. She loved sailing, gardening, bridge, cribbage and poker. She loved cars and driving fast. A little Scotch and a cigarette, Darn Right!!! And Kleenex….of course. Oh my dear sweet, darling girl, we all will miss you so… A Memorial Celebration was held on Sunday, March 6, 2011 at Leir House, Penticton. Donations gratefully appreciated to the Salvation Army.

B16 Oliver Chronicle Wednesday, March 9, 2011

Special Olympics athletes learn how to curl Contributed To the Chronicle Special Olympics BC- South Okanagan introduced their first winter sport this season. With the help of the Oliver Curling Club that found ice time and willing coaches, curling was added to bowling, bocce, swimming and softball that are presently offered to the local athletes. Nine athletes attended the introductory lessons and have been progressing each week for the past 11 weeks. Smiles grew as they conquered the skills to throw the rocks over the hog line. Thanks to coaches Roberta Dodge, Ken Robinson, Bob Martel, Megan Wagner, and Barry Underwood for their help. Next year these athletes will start early in the season and be ready to attend local competition in the Okanagan region with their fellow Special Olympic athletes. Special Olympics BC offers sporting opportunities to those people with an intellectual disability aged eight to 88 years of age. The Oliver/Osoyoos local is always looking for new volunteers. Please contact coordinator Lee Chic at 250-495-6617 for further information Chic said this is the first winter sport they’ve offered in this local; all others are summer sports. Curling is a pilot sport this year. “It has already increased interest for a full season next year on behalf of additional athletes.” Citing a quote she read recently, Chic said “nothing increases self-esteem and self-confidence like achievement.” “I really think the more opportunities we provide these athletes the more confident they become and they are willing to take on additional challenges because of that.” Chic said one of their athletes is now holding office in Toastmasters, and is an active member of the club in Osoyoos. She noted one girl has no trouble speaking in front of 100 people.
