Town considers draft smoke control bylaw Lyonel Doherty Oliver Chronicle The Town of Oliver is considering adopting the RDOS’s smoke control bylaw to protect human health and encourage responsible burning. Air Quality Program Coordinator Janice Johnson introduced the draft bylaw to council last week. She stressed it’s not about permits or penalties, it’s about good burning practices. “We don’t want to ban burning, we just want to encourage responsible burning, which means little to no smoke,” she told the Chronicle after the meeting. Johnson noted the bylaw will be enforced by RDOS bylaw officers, not municipal fire chiefs. Johnson began her presentation by saying the RDOS wants to investigate the banning of burning barrels and unregulated outdoor boilers. She said the bylaw’s primary objective is to protect human health from wood smoke. She noted that particulate matter from wood smoke enters
the lungs and blood stream and can affect fetuses. Johnson said the bylaw will be administered on an annual budget of $10,000 (based on property taxes of 31 cents per parcel). It can be applied to all areas in the RDOS except for Crown Land and Native land. The coordinator pointed out that smoke reduction efforts include the RDOS’s agricultural chipping program, in which 40 growers participated in last year, the wood stove exchange ($250 rebate) program, curbside pickup, and the agricultural plastic recycling program. Councillor Jack Bennest said 256,000 pounds of agricultural plastic was recycled last year. This is good considering this stuff used to be burned, he pointed out. Johnson said poor burning practices are a result of the following: burning wood that is too wet; burning compostable materials (leaves and grass); improper operation of wood heating units; installation of unregulated outdoor boilers; selling outdated wood heating appliances; dirt in wood waste piles; and burning garbage. Johnson said poor burning practices are worsened by

poor venting. She noted that yard waste burns represent one of the biggest issues in the Okanagan. She cited one case where a care home was “smoked out” because someone was burning a pile of leaves and prunings. In another instance, someone was using an old bathtub to burn old parts and other junk, she pointed out. Johnson told council the draft bylaw will be driven by complaints and investigated by bylaw officers. Oliver’s Municipal Manager Tom Szalay said council must give consent before the bylaw can be applied within town boundaries. Mayor Pat Hampson said the bylaw won’t stop anyone from burning just outside the boundary. Councillor Michael Newman raised a concern about RDOS bylaw officers not being able to respond to complaints if they are too busy or overworked. He asked if the Town has the right to use its own bylaw officers to act on these complaints. Szalay said only if they are named or authorized by the RDOS. Area C Director Allan Patton said firefighters won’t be doing smoke patrol under the bylaw.

Town told that funding for Phase 3 water twinning is not happening Lack of money leaves about 120 customers high and dry in Oliver Lyonel Doherty Oliver Chronicle
(This is Part 2 of a series on the Town’s participation at the UBCM convention in Whistler.) Funding for Phase 3 of Oliver’s water twinning project is like finding a needle in a haystack. Mayor Pat Hampson reported that his meeting with Community and Rural Development Minister Ben Stewart didn’t end on a positive note. “I hope the province will see fit to complete this thing (Phase 3 twinning),” Hampson told fellow council members last week. The mayor said a lack of funding has left the Town “holding the bag” and leaves approximately 120 customers without the benefits of twinning. As a result, they have to boil their water for six months of year. And this is totally unacceptable to Island Road resident Audrey Mayer, who lives in the Phase 3 project area. “The lack of reliable and safe drinking water in the South Okanagan is getting worse every year. I live less than 10 minutes from Town Hall in Oliver and must boil my water for six months out of the year - every year.” Mayer said boil water advisories should not be happening as frequently
as they do. She noted that governments at all levels should be making safe drinking water a priority for everyone. “I feel that the federal government is not doing its part – making us spend money on lesser priorities rather than putting it away in trust for this project (water twinning).” To comply with Interior Health’s drinking water standards, the Town embarked on the construction of a separate groundwater distribution system in rural Oliver. Before this, domestic water in the rural area consisted of chlorinated water pumped from the irrigation canal. A total of $800,000 is remaining in the Phase 2 budget, which the Town wants to use towards completing Phase 3. With the $800,000 deduction, the cost would be $2. 4 million split three ways (federal, province and the Town). The deadline for using up the $800,000 is March 31, 2011. If the federal government does not extend this deadline, the money goes back to Ottawa. So basically you either use it or lose it, Hampson said. The mayor said Stewart is not willing to commit to the provincial portion of Phase 3. But he suggested applying for federal gas tax funds. “We restated the fact that about 120 Area C users will be obliged to continue drawing drinking water from wells or from the irrigation canal and we pressed home the urgency of completing the project,” Hampson said. Despite the bad news from Stewart, the mayor said the Town is working with local MLA John Slater to find a solution.

Council briefs Council splits grant-in-aid money
There’s only so much grant money to go around in Oliver, so council has to pick and choose who gets it. Last week it split the remaining $1,543 in the 2010 grant-in-aid account between two organizations – Link Crew ($750) and the Canadian Red Cross ($793). Funding requests from South Okanagan Integrated Services Society ($5,000) and the South Okanagan Similkameen Volunteer Centre ($5,000) were denied. Link Crew requested a total of $1,850, including $1,100 for a new projector, but council decided to cover only the group’s $750 operating deficit. Mayor Pat Hampson and councillors Marji Basso and Jack Bennest agreed that the projector should be provided by the school (SOSS), not the Town. Councillor Terry Schafer said the Red Cross’s equipment loan service depot in Oliver is a great asset to the community.
Construction tops $27.4 million this year
Thanks to the SOSS renovation project and Southwinds Crossing, the value of construction in Oliver to date this year is $27.4 million. Last month alone the value of construction was $5.4 million. This included $2 million for the new Canadian Tire building at Southwinds, and $2.5 million for the new Buy-Low Foods store, also at Southwinds. The total value of construction for the same month last year was $287,000. The total for the previous year to date was $4.1 million. Councillor Jack Bennest said it’s nice to see the new figures after several years of “seeing nothing” in Oliver. Mayor Pat Hampson agreed, saying it’s nice to see progress with new businesses in town.

Fire department report
During the month of August, the Oliver Fire Department responded to six calls within the Town, including one structure fire, one false alarm, and one motor vehicle accident. In the Rural Fire Protection District, firefighters responded to nine calls, including one structure fire and seven “special duty” tasks. Councillor Terry Schafer noted the department attended the same address on four occasions. This was for a structure fire at 33890 Highway 97. Three of these calls were deemed special duty, which involved site security, according to Mayor Pat Hampson.
Council appoints auditor
The Town has appointed White Kennedy at a cost of $17,500 to prepare its 2010 audit. Chief Financial Officer David Svetlichny recommended the company, which has been providing audit services for the Town since 2002. Prior to being hired by the Town, Svetlichny was an audit manager with BDO Canada. “If I was still in my previous position and asked to quote on the audit for the Town of Oliver, the quote would have come in at approximately $23,000.” So at $17,500, the Town is getting a good deal, according to Svetlichny.
New SAR property on the horizon
Councillor Terry Schafer said there is optimism that Oliver/Osoyoos Search and Rescue (SAR) will have a new home. Schafer gave council a brief update, saying SAR is still looking for new digs and there is reason to believe that a piece of property will become available.

Man charged with uttering threats Police responded to the Maple Leaf Motel where a severely intoxicated tenant was causing a disturbance by slamming doors and threatening to kill his roommate. When police arrived, the 29-year-old suspect refused to let police in to check on him and his roommate. The police did have a brief conversation with the male (through the door), but that conversation quickly went silent. After several minutes of no response from the male, police became concerned for his well being. Officers started to make their way into the motel room through a rear window when the roommate managed to open the door for police. The suspect was subsequently taken into custody for mischief and uttering threats. When in custody, the suspect gave police three different identities, but a fingerprint data base soon gave police his true identity. The suspect now faces additional charges of obstructing a police officer.
Police seeking good Samaritan The Oliver RCMP is looking to identify a possible witness to an incident that occurred on September 25. Sometime between midnight and 1 a.m., a female was assaulted while walking along 91 Street in Oliver near Nulton Irrigation. An unidentified female found the victim and provided her a ride home. Police need to speak to this good Samaritan as they feel she may have valuable information to help assist their investigation. If you are this good Samaritan or know this person, please call Oliver RCMP at 250-498-3422. Police believe the assault was a targeted attack.

It was a busy but fun time at the Oliver Community Gardens during the yard sale on Saturday, Oct. 16, when people had an opportunity to buy wine barrel planters, soil, compost and perennials. The next big job is finding a new location for the gardens.
Town to assist garden society
As the Oliver Community Garden Society prepares to move, it’s getting much needed help from the Town. Last week council passed a motion to store the society’s lumber, shed, and workbench where space is available at the Public Works yard. The other condition is that it be done within the Town’s budget. Society members Brita Park and Heather Whittall addressed council to ask for assistance as the group gets ready to pull up stakes and find a new location. Park said the society is very grateful for all the support the Town has given. She noted this support (providing mulch and irrigation) has allowed the society to accommodate other members of the community, such as students. Park stated that various people, such as condo dwellers, have experienced tangible benefits from the garden plots. And the volunteer work and donations from people who don’t benefit from the garden is so heartening to see, Park
pointed out. Whittall said the current plan is to clean up the property and leave it in better condition than when it was found. She noted that members of Oliver/Osoyoos Search and Rescue are dismantling the garden boxes. So the society needs a place to store the lumber, the shed and workbench. When asked where the society will go and what type of land is needed, Park said the existing property is for sale and half-joked that the Town could buy it for the society. She explained they don’t need such a big property for the garden because “small is beautiful.” Councillor Terry Schafer said he hopes someone will come forward and assist the group in locating property. Councillor Marji Basso said one suggestion is the piece of land on 103 Street (across from SOSS). She noted this property was originally targeted for affordable housing.

Centennial Park closed too early
he leaves have turned and the irrigation blowouts have been done. Once again our beautiful Centennial Park is closed for the winter and those visitors have left town and taken their spending power with them. Council probably had good reason for closing Centennial Park to travellers over the winter months but in this era of economic slowdown perhaps the idea of reopening it should be revisited. Tourists and snowbirds are good for business. Plenty of people enjoy travelling after the kids are back to school. October is a gorgeous month to take a trip: the hectic summer crowds have returned home, the orchards and vineyards are replete with burgeoning harvests, and the ashes, oaks and maples are garbed in all their colourful splendour. This is when folks make time for day trips to watch the changing colours or even plan holidays to take in the event and viewing them has become a huge revenue maker for all our provinces. Our self-sufficient snowbirds have relied on this park over the years so where are they RV-ing now? Yes, there is an RV park just south of town where visitors can pull in for a few days or even longer, but that particular venue can’t accommodate all the fifth-wheels and recreational vehicles that ply the highways of the southern Interior in the fall and winter. So who else is benefiting from our near-sightedness and their commerce? We are our own best-kept secret and we aren’t going out of our way to let others in on it. And yet we have so much to offer: curling, square dancing, gift shopping, theatre productions, our Christmas light-up, craft shows, the hike and bike path, Parks and Recreation and service clubs, and if visitors arrive early enough there’s a fantastic salmon run right at their back door. With this park located right in town guests can walk to SuperValu, Buy-Low Foods, the video store, hair salons, and any restaurant they want. They can stop at variety stores, make appointments with estheticians, drop in at a pharmacy, take in a show at the theatre or visit the library, museum or archives. No doubt about it, if given the opportunity to live in your RV in the winter nothing beats staying in Oliver for the overall convenience. And the benefits aren’t one-sided either. These RV’ers bring good revenue to town, and just as importantly, they take good vibes and fond memories about Oliver back home with them. In these lean times we need more than ever to be open for business and push our community hospitality up a notch. Seeing those big maple trees lit up over the month of December would be a spectacular display of good cheer. But if we can’t manage this (and there may be good reason) let’s try to keep the park open until at least after the Festival of the Grape (for obvious good reason).

ness licence to the township of $75, (quotation from Town of Oliver website: “The Oliver and District Chamber of Commerce currently receives funding from the Town of Oliver, based on the net annual business licence revenues, which total approximately $25,000 per year”) I'd like to know that someone has personal first-hand knowledge and experience with having owned their personal enterprise and will be able to empathize with what we, the small business people, go through and will promote our businesses to the best of their abilities -- because they have been there. So two questions: Have any of the Chamber of Commerce board of directors ever owned a business? Why is that a privacy concern? Persons who have not gone through the frustration and hard work of owning their own business should not be on the board at all. They would have no concept of what an entrepreneur is up against on a daily basis. Kelly Wheeler New Found Treasures, Oliver
Local leaders proposing to upset whole street addressing scheme Editor, Oliver Chronicle: As reported in the Oliver Chronicle editions of October 6 and 13, both the Town of Oliver and RDOS area have decided to hold open houses to represent these authorities’ views on changes to street addresses. Is either the Town or Area C desirous of meaningful consultation with its constituents on this controversial, divisive and expensive issue? The use of the open house format vs a public meeting is a divide and conquer strategy. How convenient is it for our town and area representatives, with a dubious agenda to hear one person at a time. No matter how valid a concern or suggestion, it can be ignored as it was not posed in front of an audience with perhaps support from attendees with the same concern. Public meetings should be held allowing everyone in attendance to hear questions and concerns and allow for a dissemination of consistent information and a forum for discussion. It’s been reported that the number of digits in our house numbers be reduced. This is unadulterated bureaucratic tinkering. Presumably the number of digits in numbered streets is to be reduced as well. What a waste of time and
money! In Area C, Mr. Patton suggests that Island Road needs to be changed because it travels both north/south and east/ west. What’s wrong with this? This road is basically a rural “crescent,” with a couple of dead-end spur roads. It has egress to Highway 97 at both ends. Crescents are common; the house numbers just follow the road around, why change it? Originally we were told that Canada Post demanded these changes, and then that emergency services required these changes. Neither is fully true. Canada Post requires that we start using street addresses as our mailing addresses -- it can label our mail box with any street address, including your current street address with no change at all. None of fire, ambulance or police requires wholesale changes as suggested by the meddling politicians. Rather than just fixing the problem areas our leaders are proposing to upset the whole street addressing scheme causing inconvenience and expense to all, without an adequate and appropriate forum for public feedback and discourse.

extra votes to cross the 50-percent barrier, and Marina cannot really compel all the Greens to vote for Serra. The headline story is still the rapid economic growth Brazil has enjoyed under outgoing president Luiz Inacio “Lula” da Silva – and, just as importantly, the way the new wealth has been shared out. Fifty million Brazilians have been rescued from poverty (an income of less than $82 per month) by Lula’s “family plan” of subsidies for the very poor, and 25 million other low-income Brazilians have actually ascended into the middle class. So Lula leaves office after eight years with a stratospheric approval rating of 80 percent. He is so popular that he could choose a complete nobody as his successor and get him or her elected. Dilma Roussef is much more than that – a former guerilla during the military dictatorship of 1964-85, a skilled administrator, and Lula’s former chief of staff – but nobody has ever accused her of having too much charisma. No matter. She’ll win the second round anyway. What’s really interesting here is the emergence, two decades after the restoration of democracy, of what you might call Brazil’s political personality. All three big political parties, the Workers’ Party, Serra’s Social Democrats, and the Greens, are on the left in terms of economic policy, though Marxist ranters are scarce in all of them. Social conservatives
are still well represented in the latter two parties, but they all promise to continue Lula’s wonder-working brand of pragmatic socialism. Together, they got 98 percent of the vote in the elections on 4 October. The rapid rise of the Greens is linked to Brazilians’ growing awareness that they are the custodians of the world’s largest tropical forest, the Amazon, and that it is in serious danger from global warming. That may explain why 85 percent of Brazilians think that climate change is a major problem, while only 37 percent of Americans do. It’s a striking picture. Brazil is the only one of the BRICs, the big countries with high economic growth rates, to have both a powerful industrial sector (like India and China) and self-sufficiency in energy (like Russia). By the time it hosts the Olympic Games in 2016, it will probably have the fifth-largest economy in the world. It is still one of the world’s most unequal countries, with a gulf between rich and poor that makes even the United States look egalitarian. (20,000 families control 46 percent of Brazil’s wealth, and one percent of land-owners own 44 percent of all the land.) But it is moving in a different direction now, without any of the doctrinaire excesses that usually mar such efforts. In fact, Brazil is becoming not just an important place, but a very interesting place.
Tiny sardines are a great bait but also a great food When the six-year-old daughter of David Suzuki Foundation sustainable fisheries analyst Scott Wallace returned from a birthday party, excited about the hockey cards she got in her loot bag, her Dad asked, “What players did you get?” She replied that she got the “sardine twins” from the Vancouver Canucks. Most Canadians are aware of the value of the David Sedin – not sardine – brothers to the Canucks, but we don’t know much about the value of eating sardines and other small fish. Last month, renowned UBC fisheries scientist Daniel Pauly and his colleagues released a study in National Geographic magazine that looked at the global “seafoodprint”, a measure of all the plant matter required to sustain seafood production. The higher up the food chain a seafood product occupies, the more photosynthetic energy is required to produce it and, therefore, the larger its seafoodprint. For example, eating a pound of tuna represents roughly 100 times the seafoodprint of eating a pound of sardines, according to Dr. Pauly. As long as harvests are tightly controlled to ensure that only a small portion of the total mass of living organisms is taken, eating species lower on the food chain takes much less of the world’s ecosystem energy and is therefore more sustainable. Species such as sardines, anchovies, herring, and mackerels – collectively categorized as small pelagic fish – already make up about 37 per cent of all fish landed from the ocean. The data are varied, but it appears that only about 10 to 25 per cent of small pelagic fish caught in the world are directly consumed by humans. The remaining 75 to 90 per cent are ground up into fish meal and oils to feed pigs, cattle, farmed salmon, and chicken, or are used as bait to catch larger fish – an inefficient use of perfectly edible protein.
Aside from their merits as a sustainable food source (visit SeaChoice.org), small fish are inexpensive, typically caught without using a lot of fossil fuels, and among the healthiest foods a person can eat. Health Canada recommends that pregnant women eat sardines and similar seafoods because they are valuable sources of omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins, Suzuki calcium, and protein. Because these fish are found in tight schools, capturing them requires little chasing around, dragging of nets, or setting of lines, so their carbon footprint is low. Some research suggests that small pelagic fish may be the most efficient protein system in the world in terms of the energy used to capture them. In 2009, B.C. sardine fishermen received about three cents a fish. I could go to Port Hardy during sardine season and buy a truckload for the price of an average Canucks ticket, $150. This same mass of halibut would cost about $15,000 – 100 times more. You’d think that any food that is tasty, healthy, sustainable, and cheap would be a preferred consumer choice, but direct per capita consumption of these types of fish in North America has dropped steadily since about 1985, and last year, the only remaining sardine and herring canning plant in the United States shut down. The trend in the U.K. and Europe is the opposite. There, these types of fish are steadily growing in popularity. In the U.K. alone, demand for the Cornish sardine went from seven tonnes a year to 1,800 tonnes in less than 15 years, an increase attributed to consumers wanting local, nutritious, and sustainable options. Sardines are the second-largest fishery in Canada’s Pacific waters. But about half of the British Columbia catch is sold as bait for the high-seas long-line fishery for tuna – ironically, a highly unsustainable enter-
prise. Less than a fraction of a per cent is actually eaten by Canadians. On the Atlantic coast, only a small proportion of the herring caught is eaten by humans. The rest provide bait for the lobster fishery. Sardines are a true rarity – a guilt-free food item. Every serving is one less used
as bait or eaten by a pig, chicken, cow, or farmed salmon. Given the nutritional value of sardines and other small fish, it’s possible that eating them is one of the secrets to the success of the Sedin brothers. After all, they’re from Sweden, where small fish have always been a popular food choice.

Meals On Wheels a true labour of love in Oliver Lyonel Doherty Oliver Chronicle Ever since John Nicholls has been a client of Meals On Wheels in Oliver, his perception of hospital food has changed dramatically. “They always say hospital food is terrible, but this hospital food (at South Okanagan General) is not so bad. I now enjoy it.” John and Loretta Nicholls have been clients of the program for a year, and receive meals three times a week. Since they both suffered strokes, they found the program to be very beneficial. “It’s absolutely fantastic, especially the volunteers who give their time . . . and the meals are well balanced,” Loretta said. Meals on Wheels has been operating in Oliver for at least 25 years, according to volunteer coordinator Peter Morrow. He and wife Beverly have been involved in the program for 17 years, seven years in Oliver. Unlike some Meals On Wheels programs in other towns and cities, volunteers in Oliver are not paid for their work because this would raise the cost to the clients. “I like it because I like people,” Beverly said. “Sometimes we are the only people clients see that day. We get attached to some of them; they’re like family . . . like friends.” Meals are available to any adult who requires assistance in getting his or her own meals on a temporary or longterm basis. At a minimal cost, recipients receive a hot, nutritious meal including hot soup, entrée and dessert (delivered in insulated containers). All meals are prepared daily by kitchen staff at South Okanagan General Hospital. Morrow said the staff do an excellent job of providing well balanced meals, taking into account special dietary requirements. Volunteer drivers deliver the meals six days a week, and the Kiwanis Club of Oliver sponsors the program for any expenses that may be encountered. About 10 clients currently utilize the program.
Vicky Fraser has been receiving meals for three months, and she loves it. “I can still cook, but I don’t have much appetite . . . it’s just easier this way.” Fraser used to buy frozen beef dinners from the store, but one time she opened a container and said to herself, “I don’t think I’m going to like this.” Now there’s no comparison to Meals On Wheels. In fact, Fraser said she makes two meals out of the main course. Before Peter and Beverly enter the house, they give Fraser a big hug. It’s almost a prerequisite.

“Sometimes the visit is more important than the meal,” Peter said If some of these clients did not receive these meals, they would likely end up in the hospital, he pointed out. Some of them just don’t want to cook for themselves, he noted. The nice thing about Meals on Wheels is that it allows people to stay independent in their homes, Peter said. For more information about the program, call Peter or Beverly at 250-498-0889. “We can always use extra drivers,” Peter said.

Oliver Riding Club saddles up for November Kathy Malmberg Special to the Chronicle It has been hard to keep up with all of the activities organized by our amazing events planners and our executive. We had a saddle fitting and equine massage session with Stacy Elliot at the end of August. Stacy specializes in saddle fitting, massage therapy, magnetic therapy, acupressure and nutritional advice for the equine. For this demonstration session Stacy focused on correct fit for western saddles. Stacy’s website: www.wildhorsepower.com Private saddle fitting sessions can be booked. Many of the members book private sessions. At our Fun Day September 5 we offered adult and junior Western and English Pleasure and Gymkhana games for all. The “Improve Your Skills” sessions have been very popular - not just with our members, but others who enjoy the challenges and are always invited to attend for a nominal fee. The September session focussed on riding a dressage test in readiness for the “Percentage Day” in October. This all culminated in a dressage test for anyone who wanted to give it a shot. Everyone had the opportunity to ride their chosen test a couple of times with lots of hints and tips from our amazing coach, Carolyn Tipler. There were lots of facial expressions displaying focus, concentration and at times, bewilderment! Percentage Day was October 3 and we were very fortunate to have Jane Smart of Kelowna agree to come and judge the dressage practice day at the D Bar K Ranch. Ten riders took part - mostly Oliver Riding Club members, but also a few riders from Penticton. They selcted to ride either a walk/trot or a training level test. Some opted to ride both. Thanks go out to Ken MacRae and Dawn Muller for allowing the club to use part of their field as a warm-up area, for harrowing the main arena and loaning the judge and scribe in the back of Ken's pickup truck as a viewing plat-
form. Also thanks to Carolyn Tipler for all her instruction over the past weeks and to Jane Smart for coming from Kelowna to judge our event. Carolyn also marked out the dressage arena, assisted by Ken MacRae and Maggie Strong. Maggie and Margie Fisher did an awesome job getting the riders into the ring at the right time and in the right order. Janice Goodman was a very popular lady - she was the test caller for most of the riders -- couldn't have done it without her. Each rider rode the same test twice and got verbal feedback immediately after their test. They also got written test sheets for their marks and futher comments later on. And then there were those of us who made the most of the great weather later in September and the first half of October. The trail riding was the best. Have you noticed how much quieter it is in the hills now? A lot of the birds have gone south already. Our trail competition in September had to be cancelled due to bad weather. We will make that up in the spring. On September 26 we had another popular Hunter/Jumper clinic with Julie Johanssen. Some of us took advantage of the Ross Hanson clinic at the D Bar K near the end of September. It is always good to get input from another perspective. I love these clinics for the results we can actually see with the close relationships developed to a higher level between horse and rider. Yours truly actually got her horse to take a right lead! Ross put on a demo on Friday night in the round pen and again on Sunday afternoon. Ross likes to work with a 'snubbing post' in the round pen. It was really interesting to see how he interacted with the horses using this device. Our AGM is scheduled for Novemer 18. If you would like more info about our club, please contact our membership person, Margie Fisher - email@example.com or our president - Debbie House - firstname.lastname@example.org.

Fall Art Show and Sale brings out the best Contributed To the Chronicle The 2010 Fall Art Show and Sale wrapped up Sunday, Oct. 3 with visitors remarking that it was one of the best shows ever.

er exhibits and events reflected the same nostalgic theme. The Oliver and District Heritage Society mounted an attractive and interesting display of 1920s and ‘30s pop culture (toys, games, and film stills) and early Oliver life (home appliances, machinery and housewares). Guest artist Marianne Parsons demonstrated quilting techniques, surely a homesteading skill from Oliver’s early days. Two fundraising paintings also waxed nostalgic about summers in the South Okanagan. A two-day silent auction of antiques and collectables from the early to mid 20th century drew many bids. The Jazz Out West trio entertained at the Saturday reception with classic standards by Gershwin, Berlin, Cole Porter and more. Nearly 400 visitors signed the guestbook over two days, with an estimate of a few hundred more who didn’t stand in line to sign! Many of the art enthusiasts crowded around artwork that ended up winning or placing in their category. Sue McCarrell’s two New Media entries, including bestin-show “Moment in Time,” attracted many questions about her transfer techniques. McCarrell combed the Oliver archives looking for old sepia photographs, letters and newspapers to create transfer images which, by means of a gel process, were then adhered to wood panelling. A hushed audience gathered around Merle Somerville’s depiction of a snowy orchard in his giclee “Days Gone By,” drawn into the photograph by its skillful use of perspective and light. The brash brushstrokes of Michael Randle’s primitive style abstracts reflected both his sense of humour and his love of bold colour. Wayne Borthwick’s “Home on the Range” got the most attention from children and the young at heart. The enormous model of a farmhouse, complete with walls that opened outward revealing furnished rooms within, was tempting to touch. Shirley Nilsson’s quilted hanging “School Days” glowed with fall colour; three-dimensional fabric leaves decorated
the border. Emerging artist Megan Pedersen’s piece, “Ghost of a Memory” was a touching reminiscence about one of the most painful of memories, a lost love. The Oliver Community Arts Council thanks all the entrants in the Fall Art Show and Sale. Everyone created an experience several hundred people will never forget! Here is the complete list of winners.

Oliver Women’s Institute hears interesting tale of river salmon Helen Overnes Special to the Chronicle A talk on river conservation was given by Lee McFadyen at the Oliver Women’s Institute meeting held October 6. Lee has been working for four years as public relations for the 10-year project of the Okanagan River restoration project north of Oliver. There were several groups interested and discussing it ,and one Indian band member attended every meeting asking and promoting the urgency of the river’s restoration, otherwise the sockeye salmon run would be lost. Finally, the project got started in 2006 when two properties were bought with oxbows west of the river to reconnect them to the river. Funds were obtained from hydro electric companies who had agreed under the Columbia River Treaty to help maintain the river. There were 73 federal agencies involved. Before total re-entry of the oxbows, great care was taken to monitor river flow and silting. Lee took us out to the site where we saw part of the biggest sockeye salmon run since 1906. When salmon enter fresh water they change colour and do not feed on their journey to spawning grounds. They arrive in Osoyoos Lake and wait for the river water to go down to a temperature of 60F (8 degrees C). After spawning they are worn out, die and are recycled by birds and animals or relese nutrients from feeding in the sea for the habitat.
The large rocks at the re-entry to the river create deep pools to rest or hide in. Logs have been chained for turtles to sun on. A fish ladder at McIntyre Dam has been built and next year they will construct one at Okanagan Falls. When the river was channelled in the 1950s it lost 90 per cent of its length, which took away a lot of feeding habitat for fingerlings, so they feed in Osoyoos Lake for two years before returning to the ocean. We welcomed Lee McFadyen and Peta Miller. In other W.I. news: A poem was read entitled “What mothers can do.” Volunteer hours were taken and each member gave an item of history of the valley – e.g. building of the river channel; growing zucca melons for jam and candy making for Christmas cakes; 5,000 feet of ice covered the valley and benches were made by moraine deposits as the ice melted; in the early days the Okanagan River ran north into the Thompson River and then to the Fraser. Tickets will be on sale soon for a hand-embroidered and hand-quilted quilt. The annual general meeting of the South OkanaganSimilkameen W.I. district will be held October 23 at the United Church in Okanagan Falls. The Oliver W.I. will hold their annual general meeting November 3 at 1:30 p.m. at the Community Services Building. This is a good time to join. Phone 250-498-4705.

Oliver RCMP arrested one male on October 12 for public intoxication on 93 Street and 362 Ave. Four males were consuming beer in public and were warned it was against the law. One male ran off while the others stayed behind. One of the males continued to consume his beer in front of police, therefore, he was arrested.
Police kept busy with accidents Oliver RCMP recently responded to a two-vehicle collision on Highway 97 at Island Road. A 2010 Chevrolet Cobalt was southbound on Highway 97 when a 2009 Hyundai Accent entered the highway from Island Road, failing to yield to the oncoming Cobalt. The driver of the Cobalt, a 27-year-old female from Calgary, was transported by ambulance to Penticton hospital for possible head/neck injuries. The driver of the Accent, a 35-year-old female from Penticton, was transported to Oliver hospital but later released. The driver of the Accent is under investigation for impaired driving. A sample of her blood was obtained at the hospital and was subsequently sent for anaylsis to determine her blood/alcohol level at the time of the collision. Police recently responded to a hit and run in the parking lot of Murphy’s Pub in Oliver. An unregistered 1994 Ford pickup truck backed into a 2007 Hyundai Tiburon. Before any particulars could be exchanged, the occupants of the truck fled on foot.
Further investigation revealed the truck had changed hands more than once since last being registered to an Oliver resident. The RCMP said the last registered owner could be held responsible for the damage if police cannot locate the offending parties. Police remind people that whenever they sell a vehicle they need to inform ICBC of such a sale so they can be removed from any future liability. An Osoyoos resident was travelling on Highway 97 near Road 1 in his 2007 Ford Escape when he struck a traffic pylon, causing damage to the undercarriage of his vehicle. A second call was received in the same area of several more traffic pylons strewn on the roadway. Police believe that suspects took the pylons from the construction area and deposited them on the roadway as a prank. Police said these pylons, although made of plastic, can cause considerable damage and result in traffic accidents. Anyone with information about who was responsible for this mischief as asked to call the Oliver RCMP at 250-4983422.

Where does the ‘Poppy’ money go? WHEN PEOPLE ASK: 1. Why should I wear a poppy? When you wear a poppy or display a poppy wreath, you honour the war dead and you help the living. 2. How do I help the living? Your contributions provide quick help for needy ex-service personnel and their dependents. 3. Just what does this help consist of? Any ex-service personnel may appeal to the poppy trust fund for emergency aid, such as food, shelter or medical expenses. There are also bursaries for their children’s education in deserving and needy cases. 4. Doesn’t the government provide pensions for ex-service personnel? Yes. In fact ex-service personnel do get pensions. But many other, although handicapped, do not. However, no pension can provide for eventualities such as fire, a long illness on the part of the breadwinner or other medical expenses. 5. Does any ex-service personnel or dependent get poppy fund help? Yes. In fact 75 per cent of all cases involve ex-service personnel who are not Legion members. 6. Does all the money raised through the sale of poppies and wreaths go into ex-service personnel welfare? Most of it does. However, expenses such as costs of poppies and other supplies naturally would be deducted. 7. Are campaign expenses high? Campaign expenses are unusually low because all work is voluntary. 8. How much of this money collected stays in the community? About 90 percent. An amount not exceeding 10 percent may be used to help ex-service personnel in the Commonwealth underdeveloped country. 9. What are the Service Bureaux? They are Legion departments which give any ex-service personnel or dependent help with pension and other problems. They will act on his behalf with the Federal Government. There is no charge to the ex-service personnel or dependent. The experience of service bureaux in handling such problems, enables the Legion to keep a close check on ex-service personnel legislation and recommended changes where changes are justified. 10. Can poppy money be used for anything else? A sum not exceeding 50 percent may be used to construct or assist in the construction of low cost housing for the aged., The Legion’s constitution stresses that these funds must be held in trust. They are subscribed to by the public. They are held in a bank account separate from that of the branches, and cannot be used for any other purpose than stipulated above. 11. How much should I give? We suggest that you give according to the dictates of your conscience. You might remember that the cost of all things the poppy fund provides is much higher today than it used to be. Therefore it takes more to do the same job.

Bridging the gap
Students from Sen Pok Chin School get a bird’s eye view of the salmon run in Okanagan River in Oliver. Here, they line up on the foot bridge adjacent to Lions Park during an environmental field trip to learn more about sockeye salmon and their incredible journey to spawn.
Public sentiment leans toward Option 3 Wendy Johnson Special to the Chronicle The Oliver Elks Hall buzzed with comments, queries and lively discussion as residents attended an open house to discuss the possibility of adopting street names and shorter house numbers when Canada Post moves to civic addresses for mailing purposes next year. Approximately 40 people walked through the doors last Thursday afternoon, reaching for surveys to fill out and asking questions of councillors and town staff, hoping to make informed decisions on whether to keep the status quo, make small changes to the existing street grid, or revert to street names and smaller house numbers. Posters explaining the options lined the walls but the one that garnered the most interest was the Oliver map highlighting the number of segmented streets in town and following their fractured progress in colourful detail as the pieces butted heads with orchards, vineyards, land contours, several blocks and even a lake. It provided proof there were many such streets in both the town and rural area. Councillor Michael Newman, chair of the steering committee charged with studying the issue and submitting a report to council on its findings, noted the map was compelling evidence for many residents. And the verification dovetails with his focus. “The issue I’m pushing is the need to make the town GPS-friendly,” he explained later. “Because that’s where things are going. Five years from now, if we retain a system that confuses GPS, it’ll look like the stupidest decision in the world.”
Connie and Tom Pearson who moved here from Peachland concurred, saying GPS’s longitude and latitude readings don’t reflect the situation on the ground here. He recalled having to guide a California agri-business truck to its commercial destination because the driver was lost. “This move is long overdue,” they said. And it should end the practice so many residents have regarding visitors, delivery vans and others coming to their homes for the first time: meeting them at a popular landmark and guiding them to their destination. Perhaps just as telling last Thursday was that so many individuals grabbed their driver’s licence when they filled out the address portion of the survey. Sheepish looks were followed by grumblings over the long sequence of numbers. That’s not to say people are thrilled with the coming headache of having to notify friends, family, banking establishments, catalogues, magazines, credit card companies and government agencies of their new addresses, but they are resigned to the necessity. Long-time resident, Marge Riley noted, “It’s too bad we have to go through it again. But there has to be some changes because my street, 103rd, breaks into four sections. As long as emergency services can find me, I’m okay with the changes and I love the idea of street names again.” Alex and Sandy Mitchell, who moved here from Osoyoos three years ago, are fine with the revisions as long as they are permanent ones. “This is something we need to do,” he said. “And the biggest thing is getting rid of the segmented streets.” However, not everyone was happy with the idea of overhauling everything. Don Rudzcki believed that simply fix-
ing the anomalies could solve the problem. “For three-or-four-dozen problem areas we have to change everything? Absolute nonsense!” Rudzcki brushed off the comment that so many problem areas in a community this size was significant. Instead he complained about the expense of changing letterheads and business cards, ignoring the fact those expenses would have to be borne regardless, because the post office is implementing civic mailing addresses. Joan McCaughey, who came here from Courtenay applauds the move. “I came from a community of super mailboxes and having one address works.” The evening session was a surprise however. Organizers had arranged the open house hours to accommodate as many residents as possible, but few took advantage of the later opportunity. “Thursday night was a complete reversal from Thursday afternoon and I have no explanation as to why,” commented Newman. “Just a handful of people came between 6-8 p.m. and for the last half-hour we all sat around, waiting. But we did get an earful and we heard from dissenters too. However, my sense is that public feeling weighs heavily towards Option 3 [changing to street names, giving each street a unique name and assigning shorter house numbers].” Newman stated they received a good bundle of answered surveys and noted the tabulation results would be known soon. “The next step will be Allan Patton’s meeting on November 2. I’m not sure how we will organize the following step after that; it depends on council, of which I am one vote.”

Four dams required immediate attention Contributed To the Chronicle Minister Barry Penner has released a response to recommendations contained in the July 2010 Deputy Solicitor General Report on the Testalinden Dam failure and has accepted all the recommendations made in that report. The report found four dams required immediate follow-up attention. An additional 379 dams required less urgent follow-up and ministry staff will be working with the dam owners to address these issues. Based on this assessment and the immediate measures already taken to address the four dams, no dams are considered as high risk for failure at this time. The four dams that required immediate attention were Goertzen Pond in the Osoyoos area, Grafton Lake Dam on Bowen Island, Eagle Rock Reservoir south of Chase and Allan Spring Dam in Saanich. The following outlines the action taken to address concerns: Goertzen Pond - owner pumped the reservoir down to a safe elevation below the dam crest; Grafton Lake Dam - gradually removed a beaver dam to ensure the spillway remains clear; Eagle Rock Reservoir - cleared the spillway of any obstructions; Allan Spring Dam - lowered and cleared the spillway. As part of a renewed emphasis on dam
safety in the province, the ministry is taking a number of steps to improve the Provincial Dam Safety Program. Some of the steps that have already been taken or are in progress include: The completion of the Provincial Rapid Dam Assessment involving more than 1,100 dams across British Columbia to identify any immediate actions that may be required; An updated Dam Safety Regulation that will increase the accountability and awareness of dam owners; New policies and procedures to improve record-keeping, information sharing and emergency call-outs; A new requirement for signage at all very-high, high and low-consequence dams on crown land; An updated provincial database for greater access by the public and local governments; Additional training by ministry staff over the coming year that will target provincial and local government staff, as well as dam owners on their roles and responsibilitie; The allocation of four new staff dedicated to dam safety. British Columbia is one of four provinces in Canada with a formal dam safety program. The Ministry of Environment provides oversight of nearly 2,000 dams in the province, including some of the largest structures in Canada. Penner says the addition of the four dam safety positions will increase the ministry’s audit capacity, improve information management and dedicate more staff to ensuring follow-up of outstanding dam safety issues.

Community Futures first to launch Economic Gardening business to promote small companies Contributed To the Chronicle The South Okanagan-Similkameen is getting set to lead the country in the development of Economic Gardening an entrepreneurial support project that uses technology and business expertise to help local businesses grow. The heart of the project is the implementation of research tools that can give small businesses the valuable market information, competitor intelligence and industry trends they need in order to expand their business. The region’s economic development agency, Community Futures Okanagan Similkameen (Community Futures), announced today it is launching Canada’s first full-service Economic Gardening project. Board chair Linda Larson and general manager Mary Ellen Heidt say funding has been approved allowing Community Futures to conduct a major 20-month, $183,000 project that will use GIS (Geographic Information System) technology to gather and analyze business data. Community Futures will initiate a pilot project using the technology to help the businesses in the region’s organic farming industry to grow. Once the pilot is completed, other industries will have an opportunity to access the services. The project will run from August 2010 to March 2012. “Entrepreneurs and small- and medium-sized businesses are the engines of the Canadian economy responsible for the creation of most new jobs,” said the Honourable Stockwell Day, President of the Treasury Board, Minister of the Asia-Pacific Gateway and Member of Parliament
for Okanagan-Coquihalla. “Projects like the Economic Gardening initiative remove barriers, encourage growth, and create employment opportunities for Canadians.” Larson says Community Futures has been excited for some time about the Economic Gardening model, which originated in Colorado 20 years ago. “We have been studying and preparing for the chance to launch this program and now have the opportunity to develop the technique and put it into practice,” Larson says. She adds, “Research shows that the majority of a region’s jobs are created and maintained by existing small businesses. Most small businesses don’t have the time or money to do the market research that will help them prosper and create more jobs, and Economic Gardening is designed to provide them with that critical information and analysis.” Community Futures will devote two staff members and will provide management and accounting support to the project. The project leaders, Market Analyst Su Baker and Business Analyst Charles Cornell, will work closely with project partners including the Certified Organic Associations of BC (COABC), the five Chambers of Commerce in the region, the Economic Development Officers, and Okanagan College. Heidt says Community Futures will be the first organization in Canada to use the specialized Business Analyst software program and GIS technology to assemble competitive market intelligence specifically for small business. “The project’s goal is to use the latest in technology to help small businesses in the region improve their market strategies, expand their
products, increase their revenue and create jobs,” Heidt says. The project also includes business visitations that will assess other barriers for growth and will connect businesses to resources that can help them grow. Throughout the project, Community Futures will consult with an Economic Gardening Steering Committee made up of representatives from businesses, educational institutions, Chambers of Commerce, and government. “The steering committee will meet quarterly over the course of this project, and we look forward to the valuable input that business people, educators and others will provide; I invite any interested people to contact me or their local Chamber of Commerce to talk about participation.” Heidt says. Community Futures Okanagan-Similkameen gratefully acknowledges project funding of $108,275 from the Rural Economic Diversification Initiative of British Columbia (REDI-BC), a joint rural economic development initiative funded by Western Economic Diversification Canada, in partnership with Community Futures BC. Additional funding of $29,284 comes through the Southern Interior Development Initiative Trust, a trust created and funded by the Province of B.C. to support economic development. Further support for this initiative was provided by the Town of Osoyoos, the Town of Oliver, the Similkameen Valley Planning Society, as well as a technology contribution from the Environmental Systems Research Institute, ESRI Canada.

Tourism association seeking buy-in Lyonel Doherty Oliver Chronicle The Oliver Tourism Association (OTA) is growing up with a passion. But with that passion comes the need for dollars and local buy-in. That was the message delivered by member Beth Garrish, who addressed town
council on October 4 with a proposal and projected budget. “Our proposal is to keep it simple; there’s no need to reinvent the wheel,” she said. But the problem is . . . “we don’t have any money,” Garrish pointed out. The association wants to take on the responsibility of being the lead organization for tourism services in the Oliver area. Its

three-year objectives include: more community awareness and buy-in; a consistent marketing plan; hiring a tourism coordinator; develop public-private partnerships for promotional initiatives; and practice “economic gardening” by promoting existing businesses. Short-term objectives include maintaining a current list of tourism assets and ensuring the website reflects these. The association also wants to update the “trails map” compiled by the RDOS and have that available from the website. The projected budget for 2011 shows member dues at $20,000 and municipal funding at $25,000. Under expenses, a parttime tourism coordinator will cost $20,000, while advertising (brochures, press kit, rack cards and tourism guide) amounts to $20,000. The association recommends that the Oliver Visitor Centre continue to be operated by the South Okanagan Chamber of Commerce. And the plan is to have tourism operators and stakeholders come together as members of OTA, Garrish said. Councillor Michael Newman pointed out the importance of keeping the tourism website current. He also agreed that the most effective thing for Oliver’s economy is the visitor centre operation. Municipal Manager Tom Szalay said the Town contributed $28,000 this year to the Chamber to operate the visitor centre. He noted that OTA’s projected $50,000 revenue expectation from the Town in 2013 would result in a five percent tax increase or a cut in municipal services. Councillor Jack Bennest said he wasn’t in favour of creating a new budget for another tourism organization. Szalay questioned why the OTA was formed separately from the Chamber, resulting in two tourism groups in town. He believes tourism services should all be un-
der one umbrella. Mayor Pat Hampson noted that people have been saying the “Wine Village” concept is a great idea, but Oliver is more than that, it’s farming and vegetables, too. “We need to have a broader focus than the wine industry.” Electoral Area C Director Allan Patton said he was having difficulty understanding where Area C’s contribution ($12,000) is being spent. He voiced his concern that rural taxpayers’ money is going to the visitor centre, which falls under the South Okanagan Chamber of Commerce, formerly known as the Oliver Chamber of Commerce. “To put it succinctly, I want the Oliver Chamber back,” Patton said. But Chamber president Chris Scheuren said all of the money from Area C stays in the Oliver area. Scheuren stated the Chamber’s funding from the town and the RDOS has decreased, noting these cutbacks will result in reduced services. In fact, the visitor centre is “losing money,” he pointed out. But Bennest countered by saying the Town has not cut funding to the Chamber; in reality it has increased funding. Council made it clear that it would like the Chamber and the OTA to meet and report back with a joint proposal. In the meantime, the Chamber is surveying members to determine if they would be willing to pay an additional racking fee at the Oliver Visitor Centre. In a recent email to members, the Chamber stated it must charge a fee of $100 to all who wish to rack their business cards at the centre. The Chamber said its 2010 funding was cut by $5,000, and says it has been informed by Patton that funding will be cut for 2011 as well. “This will mean a 20 percent funding cut over two years,” the email stated.

Kaleden, a Great Horned Owl was injured and rescued in Kaleden this summer. She was badly bruised and had a large laceration to her chest. She has been nursed back to health by the caring volunteers at SORCO and is ready to return to the wild. SORCO will be releasing Kaleden into the See Ya Later Ranch vineyard on Sunday, October 24 at 2 p.m. SORCO is a registered non-profit organization relying on public support both physically and financially. Taking care of Kaleden was an expensive but worthwhile venture and funds raised prior to her release will go directly to SORCO to cover her medical costs as well as to those at the centre now and in the future. Donations can be made at See Ya Later Ranch prior to the event and the public is welcome to attend the release of Kaleden. Wine tasting this day will be by donation with all proceeds going to SORCO.

Town of Oliver promotes environment As part of council’s commitment to Mother Nature, it’s working with environmental planner Anna McIndoe to build a plan to protect the environment. One of the strategies is to prepare and implement a management plan for potential species at risk on municipal lands. The other is to promote and secure funds for one or more restoration projects and encourage community and private land stewardship. For example, several restoration projects have been suggested, including: Wolf Cub Creek at the Oliver Community Centre; the oxbow at Lion’s Park; and the scattering garden at the Oliver Cemetery. The plan is to coordinate at least one restoration project to be carried out in the spring or summer of 2011.

Town says ‘no’ to paying for water line relocation Council has made it clear that the Town should not be responsible for paying to relocate its water mains as part of the Testalinda Creek upgrading project. The Ministry of Transportation plans to upgrade the creek crossing under Highway 97 south Oliver. This is necessary after the June 13 mudslide that destroyed five homes and damaged orchard property. The debris flow changed the course of Testalinda Creek, and now upgrading is required. Initially, the ministry expected the Town to pay for water line relocation costs, which amount to approximately
$51,000. It stated that permit holders are responsible for costs when its utilities (in this case, water lines) are located on the highway right-of-way. However, the ministry has since softened its position and agreed to pay for the relocation. Mayor Pat Hampson said there is absolutely no way the Town should be responsible for bearing this cost. “This is part of the recovery . . . it’s certainly not our responsibility . . . they want to move our water lines, they should pay for it.” In a letter to District Highways Manager Murray Tekano,
Hampson stated the costs must be treated no differently than other landslide-related costs – they should be borne by the province. Water councillor Andre Miller said the province was negligent in allowing Testalinda dam to go unchecked and unfixed (prior to the slide), therefore, it should be responsible for this negligence. Municipal Manager Tom Szalay pointed out the inconsistency of the ministry’s policy. He said Oliver has a water pipeline out by Deadman’s Lake where Highway 97 is being upgraded, yet the province is paying to relocate that line.
Shoppers Drug Mart launches flu vaccination program Contributed To the Chronicle This year, Oliver residents have a new option for getting their annual flu shot. Shoppers Drug Mart in partnership with the University of British Columbia, is launching the Pharmacy-based Immunization in Rural Communities Strategy (PhICS). PhICS is a program, now in its second year, that brings together local family doctors, public health, and pharmacies to work together to promote the prevention of the flu. Through this program, community
pharmacies will be offering free flu shot clinics for eligible residents. The program draws on the knowledge and skills of pharmacists. Older patients and those with chronic medical conditions often visit community pharmacies for their health care needs. From October 18 to the end of November, community residents who are 65 years of age or older, or between the ages of five and 65 with a chronic disease, are invited to attend the free flu clinics. Trained pharmacists or nurses will provide the flu shots.
Participants can choose to have their family doctor informed about their flu shot. Some community residents will be invited to attend sessions using a personalized letter from their pharmacist. The Pharmacy-Based Immunization in Rural Communities Strategy (PhICS) is an initiative of the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences, University of British Columbia. For more information, contact Shoppers Drug Mart at 250-498-3388 or Louise Gastonguay, the project coordinator, at 1-604-707-2595.

HOROSCOPES ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20 Aries, you must express a great deal of passion in your heart. Find that special someone and let him or her know just how you feel. TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 Trust your instincts, Taurus, even when it seems they may be holding you back. Realize that you know more than you think and have a good handle on the situation. GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 Gemini, now is the time to take a trip with a friend or loved one. You need a break from reality, and this is your chance to get away for awhile. Expect work when you get back, though.

B8 Oliver Chronicle Wednesday, October 20, 2010
Smile of the week
Marion Boyd loves to learn and travel the world What is your most important value and why? I value honesty and authenticity because without them I cannot really know you. Intimacy requires authenticity. Why did you choose to live in this town? I didn’t. It was the 60s and I just followed my husband and his new job here. I did choose to stay here though! What would make Oliver a nicer community? Less goose poop
Do you have a goal in life? I strive for balance in all areas of my life. If you had one super power, what would it be? Wisdom If you won the $50 million Max lottery, what would you do with the money? I’d buy a new Steinway for the auditorium. Then I’d fund the bike path so it could be extended from Okanagan Falls to Osoyoos, maintained in top condition and promoted as an exceptional tourist attraction. Next I’d pay for the Smart Growth team to return and help us make the wine village a reality. I’d give big grants to the Stephen Lewis Foundation, to Pearson World College and Naramata Centre. I’d take my kids and my friends off travelling the world and my opera group to the Met in New York to feast on opera. Too bad I don’t buy lottery tickets! If you were mayor of Oliver, what would you do? Learn to count. Then I’d count all the empty storefronts in our present mall which was guaranteed to attract new business to town. Then I’d think. If you were a fly which wall in town would you like to inhabit? I’d be in Chief Clarence Louie’s office. He has the “downtown where all the action is.” What is your pet peeve in this community? People who scuttle across the border to spend their money but come running back when they want health care services. If you could fast forward the Town of Oliver by 50 years, what can you visualize? A wine centre specializing in agri-tourism modelled after old European towns with strict zoning so the town can’t encroach on vineyards and orchards. It’s not an impossible dream. What is the perfect day for you in Oliver? Every season brings perfect days. I love a day of sunshine and fresh powder on Baldy followed by foreign films or a concert in town and all shared with friends. What community issues need the most attention?
We need a Smart Growth plan with no variances, not random strip development down the highway. What would be your ideal job? One with shared leadership and a common vision. I had that when we initially set up the Hospice/Palliative Care program. Who inspires you the most? Canadian Stephen Lewis. He understands the complexity but he tackles the issues around AIDS in Africa anyway. If a genie granted you three wishes, what would they be? Health, growth inducing challenges and a dance partner. What is your greatest extravagance? Travel, travel, more travel. When and where were you happiest? I’ve had many happy days but #1 was in the old St. Martin’s Hospital on Jan. 13, 1970 when my first child was born. Suddenly I was part of a miracle! Which talent would you most like to have? I’m going to be a dark-skinned ballerina in my next life. Who are your heroes in real life? My elderly friends who face repeated losses (health/ family/friends) but still embrace life with vibrancy, involvement and hope. What or who is your greatest love in your life? I’ve given up on husbands and chosen chocolate! Seriously, my kids and grandkids fill me with love. What is it that you most dislike? Carefully calculated deceit. What do you consider your greatest achievement? My greatest achievement was raising my children and step-children to live well in the world. My greatest satisfaction came from writing my columns for the Oliver Chronicle when the kids were little and writing programs for CBC Almanac when I lived in China. Writing is a joy. What is your favourite book? “Kitchen Table Wisdom” by Dr. Rachel Remen. What is your favourite meal? Anything someone else cooks!
Mezmereyes is proud to announce the opening of...

Researchers and members of the Osoyoos Indian Band have been camped out on the Schafer property in Oliver to record and learn more about the sockeye salmon run in Okanagan River.
Lyonel Doherty photo
A mottled sockeye salmon glides through the water under a foot bridge on the Okanagan River in Oliver. Countless salmon use the river for their spawning run, providing much viewing entertainment for local residents.
• Eye Exams • Contact Lenses • Low-Vision Services Will eating carrots improve your eyesight? Eating carrots will not reduce your eyeglass prescription. Carrots contain beta-carotene which is converted to vitamin A by your body. The eye needs vitamin A and people who are severely deficient in it can suffer from night blindness and corneal scarring. A diet rich in carrots and other vegetables is good for your overall health and can also reduce your odds of developing macular degeneration and cataracts. However, high doses of vitamin A can be toxic.
We gratefully express our thanks to Buy Low Foods for their initiative in sponsoring a fundraiser for the Oliver Food Bank. It was a great success. Thank you also to the Oliver community at large for supporting this event.

Get a card from the Queen
The delivery of congratulatory messages marking 100th birthdays and 60th wedding anniversaries is arranged by the Anniversaries Office at Buckingham Palace. For many people, receiving a congratulatory card from The Queen to mark a significant birthday or wedding anniversary is a very special part of their celebrations. Cards are sent to those celebrating their 100th and 105th birthday and every year thereafter, and to those celebrating their diamond wedding (60th), 65th, 70th wedding anniversaries and every year thereafter. The Queen's congratulatory messages consist of a card containing a personalised message. The card comes in a special envelope, which is delivered through the normal postal channels. The delivery of these messages is arranged by the Anniversaries Office, part of
the Private Secretary's Office in the Royal Household, based at Buckingham Palace. To make sure that a message is sent for birthdays and wedding anniversaries alike, an application should preferably be made by a relative or friend in advance of the special day. You must provide a good photocopy of the couple’s marriage certificate. Requests must be in no later than six months after the wedding anniversary or they will not be accepted. For more information and to download the anniversary form go to www.royal.gov. uk. You can write to Her Majesty at the following address: Her Majesty The Queen Buckingham Palace London SW1A 1AA

Opera with spice was not everything nice Val Friesen Special to the Chronicle
On Thursday evening, October 14, the South Okanagan Concert Society (SOCS) opened its 30th season of bringing fine music to Oliver with “Opera, Spice and Everything Nice,” the husband and wife team of Andi & Peter Alexander, with accompanist Karen Lee-Morlang at the piano.
Let me commence by saying this was the most bizarre concert I have ever attended, so prepare yourself. Here’s my bias: I love opera. The program of mostly well-known opera arias and Broadway show tunes was presented through a storyline of an unfolding romance between two people. The musical selections ranged through the big names of opera, and contained much superb music. The good news is that Peter Alexander has a very fine baritone voice, a completely professional stage presence, and considerable musical competence. His voice has warmth and beauty, and he has both comic ability as well as insight, so he can move his audience with a plaintive aria from La Traviata, or be very amusing with a comic piece like Telemann’s “I know how they gossip…” Mr. Alexander has serious talent, and a voice I could listen to all night, although a microphone would help his light projection, particularly when he speaks to the audience. Perhaps an even more amazing abundance of talent was displayed by his accompanist, Karen Lee-Morlang, who also served as narrator, tying each piece of the romantic storyline to the music. Ms. Lee-Morlang dazzled. She has a charismatic stage presence, and a compelling command of the huge range of musical styles presented. Bravo! A feast of talent in this performer alone. But then we come to the third member of this trio, Andi Alexander, billed as a Mezzo Soprano, and from the program bio, “an accomplished singer…in demand as a soloist in oratorio…a regular soloist with Sinfonia, Orchestra of
the North Shore” and so on. I have been asked to be kind in my comments about this Ms. Alexander. Okay—this performer is not ready for the demands of performing opera. Everyone has dreams, but my goodness! I’ll spare you the details. I was left with two disturbing questions. How could a fine talent like Mr. Alexander put his wife in such a position—or vice versa? And secondly, how could our concert society have been so badly duped into securing this travesty of an opera act for presentation in their concert series? Opera already has a hard row to hoe in attracting an audience. But a concert of such grossly uneven talent is unfair and counterproductive, reinforcing all the stereotypes about opera and screeching sopranos. So I’m left with the conundrum of so earnestly wanting to promote the arts in our community by supporting the efforts of a great group of people like the members of the South Okanagan Concert Society, while on the other hand wanting to write an honest review of the concert. Put this one down as a mistake, slippage in the vetting process of selecting artists for the series, and let’s move on to better things at a level we’ve come to expect from SOCS. (Might I suggest our own marvellous soprano-in-training, Jena Moore, whenever she’s available? Now there is a superb talent already blossoming, and well worth waiting for.) Three concerts remain, in November, January and March. Sponsors, settle down. I won’t mention you here.
Sound of music coming to Sen Pok Chin Lyonel Doherty Oliver Chronicle Students will soon be learning more of what music has to offer at Sen Pok Chin in Oliver. The school is getting approximately $5,000 in grant money to buy new instruments as part of “MusiCounts,” a music education charity. Sen Pok Chin is one of 71 schools in Canada receiving these “band aid” grants to boost music programs for students. MusiCounts Executive Director Steve Cranwell said the grants have far-reaching impacts on young Canadians, not only to help promote self-confidence but to assist with social development. “It celebrates talent and cultural diversity by affording students from all walks of life the opportunity to participate equally and create music in schools.” Schools are selected based on criteria including econom-
ic need; inventory and condition of instruments; number of students; dedication of school staff; music program(s); and the overall impact the grant would make within the school. According to Sen Pok Chin principal Heather Kelliher, it will make a huge difference. She pointed out that music teacher Jacquie Hollingshead has a lot of passion for the music program at the school. In fact, she’s integrating music with literacy by using the rhythm of music to help children read. Hollingshead said Sen Pok Chin will be getting three different types of xylophones and metallophones to complement what instruments they already have. This means that all students from K-7 will get a chance to learn an instrument. Hollingshead said the important thing is the children will be able to focus on making and exploring music as opposed to being subjected to the strict regimen of how instruments should be played.
