Ex-mayor sees funding cut as big mistake Lyonel Doherty Oliver Chronicle Oliver’s former mayor believes that cutting funding to the Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs is a mistake that could negatively impact the community. Patrick Hampson reacted to last week’s response by council in rejecting the clubs’ request for continued, annual funding. “Jeopardizing the club’s future by funding cuts is an example of poor planning, poor communication and poor decision making,” he said with concern. Diane Entwistle, the clubs’ director of operations, led a contingent of supporters to council chambers on July 9 to ask for $7,000 this year and an annual sum of $5,000 to help with youth programs. She noted the Oliver Youth Centre serves more than 55 kids and sees more than 1400 visits throughout the year. “We’re not here to debate kids versus sewers; we want you to take a There is a huge look at investing in kids investment by this in the community,” she community into said. youth.

Councillor Dave Mattes said line items in the budget are hard to remove, and the Town doesn’t want to create a situation where the club depends on it every year. Mattes said they contribute about $250,000 to roads and maintenance, and a whopping $573,000 to the Parks and Recreation Society, which is primarily spent on youth. The breakdown includes $178,327 for the arena, $117,687 for the pool, $136,209 for parks and nearly $60,000 for recreational programs. “There is a huge investment by this community into youth. We’re not turning our focus to just roads and sewers,” said Mayor Ron Hovanes. He encouraged the club to approach Parks and Recreation for annual funding. Entwistle said it’s easier to get support from other agencies, such as the United Way when local government steps up to the money plate. She outlined the economic benefits of the club, explaining how their services (youth centre, for example) keeps kids out of trouble. Entwistle said it costs $3,779 for a young person to appear in court for an offence such as break and enter or theft.

Town undergoing services review The Town of Oliver is undergoing a “health check” to see how it can better serve local taxpayers. A consultant has been hired for $30,000 to conduct a core services review, which looks at all departments and staffing levels. The goal is to uncover better practices and efficiencies to allow the Town to operate more fiscally responsibly. “What we’re really doing is a form of health check on the community,” said Mayor Ron Hovanes. He stated that nothing prompted the idea; it’s just the right thing to do. The mayor pointed out that other municipalities have gone through similar reviews and it’s time Oliver did, too. Hovanes said they haven’t identified any serious prob-

lems and have assured the workers’ union there are no hidden agendas. “We have very talented people (here) and hard-working people, and I hope the review reflects that.” Hovanes said the review might recommend that more staff be hired, and it might recommend that positions be eliminated. The consultant has been interviewing employees, councillors and management staff to get a sense of what’s working and what can be improved. “I’m confident that we’re doing things well,” Hovanes said. Council expects to see a report with recommendations by the end of September.

Town cuts off funding for youth club She said if the youth centre keeps a couple of kids from committing an offence in Oliver, the investment is well worth it. But Councillor Linda Larson said she has greater faith in local youth to think that if they don’t show up at the centre, they will be vandalizing the town. “I don’t believe that the kids at your hangar would become vandals if they weren’t there.” Entwistle said the centre provides a safe alternative to limit the occurrence of graffiti, vandalism, loitering and drug abuse. In a testimonial, Sundance Video owner Bill Unwin said his business has had its windows broken on four occasions over the past eight years, but none in the last three years. He questioned whether this is a coincidence to the opening of the youth centre. Sixteen-year-old Denise Lalonde told council that the hangar is a safe place to be. “My parents are strict, and it’s the only reason they let me go there; they know I’m not getting into trouble.” Lalonde said Friday and Saturday nights are when some kids get in trouble. “Some
of my friends have turned from bad to good by going to the hangar.” Local parent Ursula Wick said it’s easy for youth to go down the path of drugs and alcohol, and she worries about what her son could get involved in. “The youth centre makes me feel secure that my son has somewhere to go.” Hampson told the Chronicle that the Town has been the sole source of operational funding for the club. He said the previous council, during his last term, created the budget line item because requests for ongoing financial assistance did not meet the Town’s grant in aid criteria. Hampson said it was never his intention or the intention of the previous council to unilaterally cut funding to the club before a funding plan through Parks and Recreation was negotiated between the Town and Area C. Hampson said this places the club in an awkward position, which could mean total abandonment of programs for which there is a demonstrated need.

Council briefs Town gives Kiwanis a break
Council has given the Kiwanis Club a break on building permit fees for the new community band shell. Club member Larry Larson requested the $700 fee be waived since the group is building the stage from its own funds. The budget is $70,000. Larson said a security fence (to prevent vandalism) will cost about $14,000. He said the other potential problem is migrant workers using the structure as a shelter. Councillor Jack Bennest said waiving the building permit fee under the circumstances is a “no-brainer.” Mayor Ron Hovanes said the Kiwanis Club should be thanked for providing such a benefit to the community. Council agreed to use grant-in-aid funds to cover the fee.
The Town has approved the reallocation of funds to upgrade wheelchair access to council chambers. Corporate officer Cathy Cowan said the access needs improvement; bringing it up to code will cost approximately $3,500. No money was budgeted for this upgrade, however, there is $10,000 budgeted to upgrade the sprinkler system in the Town office. She said if the Town was to defer this work until 2013, the money could be allocated for the ramp upgrade.
New purchasing policy reviewed
Council is reviewing a new Purchasing and Sales Policy for the Town. The old policy was endorsed by council in 2002. Since then it has seen numerous additions, hence the update. Major changes include: clearly outlining prohibited purchases; defining a code of conduct for all staff members who commit Town funds for purchases; defining authority limits; and clearly identifying the procedures to be followed when hiring professionals and going out to tender.
Councillor Jack Bennest said he would like to see the policy specify local purchasing. He has heard some people complain about not getting a fair shake locally. Mayor Ron Hovanes said if tender bids are equal, the Town would choose the local contractor. Council deferred adopting the new policy until it is brought back to committee for more discussion.
Buy a memorial bench
The Town is writing a letter to a Kelowna man stating it cannot name a road after his grandparents. Dale Tellman requested the Town name a future road (or any other form of recognition) after Minnie and Tom Roe. The family moved to Oliver after the First World War. Tom, a carpenter, was the manager of the Oliver liquor store during prohibition. He was also active in the Masonic Lodge, while Minnie was a life member of the Eastern Star. Tellman said his grandparents built the first home on the Oliver townsite on Earle Crescent. “Minnie and Tom were proud Oliver residents who played a major part in the early history of Oliver.” In a letter to Tellman, Mayor Ron Hovanes said the Town refrains from naming streets after individuals. He noted there are countless people whose contributions over the past 100 years have made Oliver what it is today. “Council simply does not wish to get involved in adjudicating whose contributions have been more worthy than others and warrant naming on a street or other public facility.” Hovanes said the Town offers a gifting program where family members can pay for a public bench or tree installation which includes a memorial plaque. Councillor Jack Bennest said he would have liked to have a street named after his parents, but his family decided to purchase a bench in honour of his mother and father.

Family says vehicle insured
The father of the 37-year-old Oliver man who struck and killed a Penticton cyclist on July 4 said the vehicle his son was driving was insured and registered. The RCMP reported that the newer model Chevrolet Impala was unregistered and uninsured. According to the driver’s father, the vehicle was licensed and insured in Ontario. Police were not available to confirm this. The RCMP reported the vehicle was heading southbound on Tucelnuit Drive when it struck 37-year-old Adam Larsson, who was pronounced dead at the scene. The investigation continues into what caused the cyclist and driver to collide.
Joyriders damage golf cart
An Oliver couple who moved here from Alberta must pay to fix a golf cart that joy riders damaged during a recent theft. Bonny and Charlie Stricker reported that someone stole their golf cart on Bellevue Drive, vandalized it with graffiti and crashed it into a tree. The incident occurred between July 13-14. Bonny said they were shocked and upset that someone would do such a thing. She noted that Charlie previously suffered a stroke and can’t walk very well, so he uses the cart to get around. She stated she wants people to be aware of what’s going on in their neighbourhood.
The owner of an Oliver greenhouse reported that approximately $2,500 worth of plants were stolen from his business recently. The plants included an assortment of fruit trees, some of which were left on the outside of the fence surrounding the property.

If you’re a bum, be a good one
faithful Chronicle reader dropped by recently, looked at the grad photo on the front page and said these kids don’t know what they’re
in for. He’s probably right. For many grads, high school will be remembered as the best time of their lives; the easy part. But now comes the real world and the trials and tribulations of being an adult. Let us count the ways: finding a job, buying a car, paying rent, doing your own dishes, paying bills, etc. Not fun. When I was in high school, I couldn’t wait for it to end – the tests, the assignments, the bullying. It was almost like a prison. But when graduation day arrived, I wished for Grade 9 again. The real world was just too real, too big and unpredictable for a guy who needed a little more selfconfidence. I didn’t know what I wanted to do in life. My dad tried to steer me into computers, saying that was the wave of the future. I scoffed at that, thinking what did he know? Apparently a lot. Dad said it didn’t matter what I chose as a career, as long as I was happy. “I don’t care if you’re a bum, but be a good one,” he said. So I became a good bum . . . just kidding. I worked in a factory with a hammer and chisel cleaning MIG welding spatter off mufflers. It was a dead end, dirty job, but I took great pride in my work. Then one day a fellow worker said something that changed my life. “Good things come to those who wait.” I truly believed in that statement - that one day something good would come my way. To make 30 years short, I quit that factory job after a year, took up poetry and enrolled in journalism school. The rest is history. Sometimes I want to go back, but what would I really change? Certainly not the only woman I’ve ever loved or the two beautiful daughters she gave me. It’s true . . . good things come to those who wait. We want Oliver graduates to take comfort in this, to realize that their calling will come, no matter where they are or what they’re doing. You don’t have to be a lawyer or a doctor to achieve success; you don’t even have to keep up with the Jones. Just do what makes you happy. If you don’t seize the day, seize tomorrow. But don’t wait too long. Lyonel Doherty, Editor The Oliver Chronicle welcomes letters to the editor. email@example.com

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
Desert Sun worthy of support The Desert Sun Counselling and Resource Centre provides a service worthy of our Town’s support. It is my opinion that Desert Sun should not be lumped in with other grant-in-aid programs but warrants being a line item in the Town’s budget. Area’s A and C should also be encouraged to contribute as I am sure this service reaches all corners of our respective communities. I have been around this community long enough to have seen the harm and the resulting community problems that occur when women, children and often men have no one or no place to turn to. We are extremely lucky to have dedicated volunteers and employees with the skills to do this work for only minimal remuneration. No gilt edged operation here.
Don’t leave your pet in a hot vehicle As the temperature rises, so do the risks for your pet. That’s the message from the BC SPCA as it ramps up efforts to raise awareness about the hazards and potentially fatal consequences when mixing hot summer heat and animals. Many people like to take their dogs with them to the beach or on errands but it’s very risky to take your canine friend in your vehicle. The temperature inside a parked car at this time of year, even one that’s in the shade, can climb well above 38 degrees. Dogs can withstand high temperatures for only a very short time before suffering irreparable brain damage or even death. “Dogs can die after just ten minutes in a hot car,” says Craig Naherniak, BC SPCA humane education general manager. “It’s much kinder and far safer to leave your friend in a cool environment.” Naherniak recommends the following tips for keeping your dog safe: Don’t leave your pet in the car. Even a car parked in the shade can pose a threat to your pet if the sun should change direction and heat up the car’s interior. Use caution when running, cycling or rollerblading with your pet, as these activities pose serious risks of heat stroke, accidents, and anxiety experienced by the animal. If you run or cycle with your dog, choose cooler times of day such as early morning or late evening, and take plenty of breaks. Also, run on soft trails rather than on cement and asphalt, which can burn your pet’s foot pads. Always take water and an appropriate container from
which your dog can drink. Have the number of a veterinarian on hand so that you are prepared in case of an emergency. “If you see a dog in a car on a hot day that you believe may be in trouble, call your local SPCA, animal shelter, or police immediately,” advises Shawn Eccles, BC SPCA chief animal protection officer. To avoid potential disaster, know the signs of heat stroke in pets: exaggerated panting (or the sudden stopping of panting), rapid or erratic pulse, salivation, weakness and muscle tremors, lack of coordination, convulsions or vomiting and collapse. If your dog shows symptoms of heat stroke, immediately move the animal to a cool, shady place. Wet the dog with cool water including the head and feet and fan vigorously to promote evaporation. Do not apply ice, as this constricts blood flow which will inhibit cooling. Allow the dog to drink some cool water. Finally, get him to the vet right away. Besides dogs and cats, it’s important to take good care of your small animals such as guinea pigs, rabbits and rats. Never put their cages near windows and provide shelter and shade if they are enjoying outdoor time. On the hottest days, adding dishes of ice into enclosures will assist in lower temperatures. And, of course, watch them closely so they don’t become overheated. For more information on pet safety visit spca.bc.ca.

We acknowledge the financial support of the Government of Canada through the Canada Periodical Fund of the Department of Canadian Heritage.
To me, it is not whether we support the society, but rather, how much is fair. There are few, if any, other activities that provide such a cost benefit even if it is not possible to assign an actual dollar figure. To classify it as a social agency or to the catch-all of grants-in-aid is misleading and I would submit that our “safe roads” and “safe streets” are greatly enhanced by works of this agency. I would hope that they will stand down on principles and give recognition to the actual services that Desert Sun delivers to our community. Our community supports our most unfortunate and disadvantaged and that should continue to be one of our important trademarks. Murray Soder, Oliver

Atamanenko hears many concerns about pipeline Alex Atamanenko, MP for BC Southern Interior paid a visit to the Pacific Northwest to learn firsthand about the proposed Enbridge Northern Gateway Pipeline project. He, along with federal NDP environment critic Megan Leslie and BC MPs Fin Donnelly and Randall Garrison were hosted by their colleague, Nathan Cullen, MP for Skeena Bulkley Valley. The group met with elected officials from Terrace and Kitimat. They also attended the Joint Review Panel (JRP) hearings and a public meeting in Terrace with over 120 concerned citizens in attendance. “What we heard was an overwhelming ‘no’ to the Enbridge pipeline,” said Atamanenko. “Those testifying before the JRP were emotional and passionate in their statements. They were grandmothers, teenagers, mothers and fathers, not “radicals” as portrayed by the Conservative government”. Witness after witness stated that a pipeline pushed through their pristine wilderness and supertankers in their waters would pose a very real risk of oil spills and permanent destruction of their way of life. “We also had an opportunity to take a boat trip to see firsthand where the tanker port would be. This is truly a magnificent area. One spill of raw bitumen from a supertanker would shut down the tourism and fishing economy putting thousands out of work. This cannot be allowed to happen,” Atamanenko said. He believes the recently passed Omnibus Bill C-38 basically guts the environmental assessment process for big energy projects such as the Enbridge pipeline. There is concern that even if the JRP recommends against the project that the Conservatives will attempt to push it through by way of a cabinet decision. The 1,177 kilometre pipeline would move some 525,000 barrels of raw bitumen daily from the oil sands in Alberta to a new Kitimat marine terminal for shipping to the US and Asia by supertanker. Citizens in the Pacific Northwest as well as in other parts of BC and Canada are mobilizing to stop this project. Those opposed can sign the petition at www.radicals4ourcoast.ca On July 16 the Kootenay to Kitimat caravan to stop the pipeline hit the road. The caravaners are taking a proclamation signed by local citizens to show their opposition to the pipeline project.
“We are carrying a message from the Kootenays to the First Nations and other communities on the pipeline route to say we support them in stopping the pipeline,” said Keith Wiley, who has been working with a small group, Kootenays for a Pipeline-Free BC. On July 9th Nelson City Council voted to oppose the pipeline project and endorse the caravan as a citizens’ way to show opposition. “We hope to raise awareness of how many BC citizens are concerned about the danger this pipeline poses to our environment and livelihoods,” said Wiley. Elizabeth May, leader of the Green Party of Canada, said, “This type of grassroots action on the pipeline is part of what it will take to turn Canada into an environment nurturing country.” Atamanenko spoke at the send-off event, along with MLA Michelle Mungall and Candace Batycki who brought the motion opposing the pipeline to Nelson City Council. “I recently spent time in the Terrace/ Kitimat area and had a chance to see the opposition to Enbridge firsthand,” said Atamanenko. I would like to congratulate those involved in the caravan and thank them for taking this important message of support to northern BC communities that are directly in the path of the proposed pipeline.” Leslie said: “The Kootenay to Kitimat caravan is a creative act of solidarity with the people, wildlife and wilderness areas that are threatened by this dangerous pipeline. I support the caravan and urge the people of southern BC to get involved in the growing opposition to Enbridge’s plan.” British Columbia MP and NDP fisheries critic Fin Donnelly said: “British Columbians have been clear, they do not want this risky pipeline. I congratulate the caravan for putting forward strong opposition to the Harper Conservative agenda, and wish them well on their trip.” The caravan plans to hold public events in Kelowna, Kamloops, Williams Lake, Prince George, Fort St. James, Smithers, Terrace and Kitimat, and may have events in other centres on the route. The caravaners will be meeting local mayors, politicians and First Nations leaders. Many experts say a tanker incident is inevitable and could contaminate much or even all of the BC coast.

Senseless vandalism upsetting shop owners Two business owners in Oliver believe more pride is needed to protect the community against senseless vandalism. Kathy Roveredo from Almerio’s Pizza was the victim of vandals who overturned her flower planters and left a big mess in front of her store on July 11. “It’s so senseless, so uncalled for . . . I don’t know, it just makes me sick.” This is the second time this year that Almerio’s has been hit by vandals. Three weeks ago someone stole their hanging baskets. Roveredo said she didn’t mind the theft so much because someone really wanted the flowers, but to purposely destroy such beauty is what she finds disturbing. Both elementary schools in Oliver gave Almerio’s two large pots of flowers as a thank you for supporting the salad bar program. One of the pots was overturned last week. Luckily, the other pot was untouched. Roveredo said they’ve been here for five years and never experienced this before. “It’s totally frustrating . . . you try to make it beautiful for the public.” Roveredo said they don’t have any enemies, so why would someone do this? “Everybody loves our pizza.” Her neighbour, Wayne Jones from Oliver Bakery and Deli, saw the destruction before 3 am when he came into work “You work hard to keep things clean and neat, and look at this, it’s frustrating.” Jones has had to deal with graffiti on top of his building, and he has to paint over another recent job by vandals. “We need more pride (in the community),” he noted. Jones cited the city of Lake Chelan as a prime example of civic pride. The intersections have small flags that pedestrians use to cross the street. Nobody steals or vandalizes them. “If that was in Oliver, the flags would be gone.” Roveredo acknowledged that graffiti is a problem in Oliver.

Handguns, rifle magazines seized at border Contributed To the Chronicle Two US residents were attempting to enter Canada recently at the Port of Osoyoos. They declared two long rifles and were referred for a more in-depth examination. When the officers went to retrieve the declared rifles, they found several undeclared items: a large glass jar filled with suspected marijuana, a concealed semi-automatic handgun, two prohibited high capacity rifle magazines, a pipe with residue, and a grinder with residue. The travellers were arrested and the items were seized with no terms of release. During another incident, two US residents were enroute to Alaska for vacation and planned to spend a few days in Canada. During a secondary examination of a trailer, the detector dog team discovered a tin with drug paraphernalia, rolling papers and suspected marijuana. The traveller was arrested, and two grams of suspected marijuana were seized. Traveller was returned to the United States for committing an offence upon entry. In another case, a US resident entered Canada to deliver furniture. System checks revealed convictions for forgery and three counts of possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell the narcotics. The traveller stated that some of these charges were dismissed, however, he had no evidence for this information. The traveller was provided with a rehabilitation package and instructions before being returned to the United States. At the port of Midway recently, a US resident was seeking entry into Canada to visit family. He stated that he was not carrying any firearms or weapons, however,
officers discovered a loaded 9 mm semiautomatic pistol in the driver’s side floor compartment. The border services officer seized the weapon and arrested the traveller. The officer also seized the vehicle with a $1,000 terms of release, which the traveller paid before returning to the US. Travel tips If you have committed or been convicted of a criminal offence, you may not be allowed to enter Canada. Criminal offences include both minor and serious offences, such as theft, assault, manslaughter, dangerous driving and driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Firearms and weapons All travellers must declare any firearms and weapons in their possession when they enter Canada. Anyone who does not declare them upon arrival can be charged for the smuggling or trafficking of firearms into Canada. It is not illegal to import firearms into Canada, however, firearms must be declared upon entry and the necessary permits and licenses must be presented. Personal exemptions As of June 1, the new personal exemption limits are $200 for absences of 24 hours or more, and $800 for absences of 48 hours or more. There are no personal exemptions for same day shopping trips (absences of less than 24 hours). Food products Canada has complex requirements, restrictions and limits on the importation of meat, eggs, dairy products, honey, fresh fruits and vegetables. For example, the importation of root crops may be regulated and that of potatoes is prohibited. All plant and animal products must be declared upon arrival in Canada.

Leadership conference opens Rhonda’s eyes Rhonda Bruce Mattes Special to the Chronicle (The following is a report on the Governor General’s Leadership Conference that the author recently attended.) The first night we had a wonderful dinner at Pier 21 with some great entertainment along with two great speakers: Leo Gerard, president of United Steelworkers, and Sergio Marchionne, chairman and CEO of Chrysler Group LLC and chief executive officer Fiat. It was an evening to remember. The conference was an amazing experience and a great opportunity. It started off with the Right Honourable David Johnston opening the conference along with Annette Verschuren, conference chair. The first two days we had a chance to listen to speakers
like David Foot, who has written the book “Boom, Bust and Echo,” Jeremy Hobbs, executive director of Oxfam International, Naheed Nenshi, mayor of Calgary, and Calvin Helin, best-selling author and international speaker, and many more. It was two days full of inspiring speakers and lots of information. We then set off to visit this vast countryside in our study groups. I was in the Nova Scotia group. The first leg was a flight from Halifax to Sydney where we stopped at Cape Breton University. This is where we received our first taste of how the community was connected to the land. From there we travelled by bus to the Fortress of Louisbourg where we received a history lesson and we stayed the night in the soldier’s barracks. The next morning we had an early start to the Canadian Coast Guard College. When I was having breakfast that

morning I met a young man attending the college from Vernon. It is nice to see young people from BC at the college. We then met with the First Nation community of Membertou and had a chance to speak with them. We travelled on to St Peter’s and then headed out on a lobster boat that took us to Isle Madame where we spent the night. The next day we met with many interesting people and took in a lot of sites. We even had a chance to tour a lobster packing plant where we had an opportunity to see some very large lobsters. Our tour continued at a very fast pace. We had a chance to see many things along the way, from living off the grid to Oxford frozen foods that process wild blueberries, along with visiting colleges and universities. We ended our tour back in Halifax where we met with Mayor Peter Kelly and Premier Darrel Dexter. All along the way we discussed leadership and sustainability. I was in an amazing group of 16 with a military liaison keeping us on time. What did I learn? I learned that in every community I was introduced to, they had a deep connection to their history. It reminded me of Oliver and to the connection we have to our history. When Nova Scotia lost the fishing industry they had to find something new. The new is lobster. In Oliver the new for us is wine. It reminds me of a saying, “If you don’t know where you have been, you won’t know where you are going.” Learning from the past and embracing change in the future will help to be sustainable. With the ever changing world around us we all need to change and move forward, always remember the past and the lessons learned along the way. It made me realize how important history is for everyone. What I learned about leadership is that we all can work together if we just concentrate on the task. We all have different opinions and it brings out new ideas. Listening has always been an important part of leadership and after this conference I still believe that. Listening to the people around you and building people up will give you a strong team. To me that is what a good leader does, builds a strong team. You may be the leader but you will need a strong team to be great. Johnston stated in his opening speech, “We are a smart and caring nation, a nation where all Canadians can grow their talents to the maximum, a nation where all Canadians can succeed and contribute. But there is much work to be done to fully achieve our vision of a smart and caring nation.” We can start in our own community. Here are some things I found on a poster in Tatamagouche: How to build a community. Turn off your TV, leave your house, know your neighbours, greet people, plant flowers, use your library, play together, share what you have, help a lost dog, take your children to the park, garden together, fix it, even if you did not break it, have a potluck, dance in the streets, listen to the birds, barter for goods, start a tradition, buy local, hire young people for odd jobs, organize a block party, bake extra and share, open your shades, sing together, share your skills, take back the night, listen before you react in anger, mediate a conflict, seek to understand, learn from new and uncomfortable angles.

Concert planned July 20 A musical treat is in store for you on Friday, July 20. “No Boundaries,” a diversified group of musicians will perform in concert at the Oliver Word of Life Church at 5825 Princess Place at 7 pm. Stanley Zapo, instrumentalist, plays both clarinet and saxophone. Bud Hoover sings old familiar melodies. Both performers are accompanied by Agnes Sutherland, well known piano teacher for decades. Special guests include Kelan Harty on piano, a junior with admirable enthusiasm, along with Saige Carlson accompanied by her sister Cassandra Carlson. Saige has won numerous awards for
voice and piano. Her most recent conquest in voice brought top awards in the provincial festival of performing arts in the senior division, competing against 19-28 year olds. Cassandra has completed her Grade 10 piano through the Royal Conservatory of Music. Pastor Cameron Ogilvie will delight everyone with his magical voice and will be accompanied by the choir. It will be an evening not to be forgotten with performers of all ages, hence the name No Boundaries. Admission is free. Donations will be greatly appreciated. A reception will follow downstairs.
Rip Off Artists set to pay tribute to Ansel Adams Contributed To the Chronicle In the heat of the August summer, the Rip Off Artists take the shutters off as they focus in on the black and white photograph of Ansel Adams’ “San Francisco Buildings.” His passion about the wilderness and the environment found expression through his calling in photography. Adams once stated, “A true photograph need not be explained, nor can it be contained in words.” Known as a man of the West, his images, the icons of wild America are legendary. Not everything is black and white with this year’s Rip Off endeavour. To make the challenge even more so, each of the nine artists working in their own medium will introduce some form of colour. Newcomers and followers of the past five Rip Off exhibits will appreciate the remarkable transformations of a recognizable artist’s work through new approaches. With each Rip Off executing a different medium, the depth of field of talents produces a striking show. The artists happily
converse with interested onlookers as they work on their interpretations. In alphabetical order this year’s artists are: Enid Baker (quilting/acrylic painting); Thea Haubrich (encaustic); Kurt Hutterli (3D installations); Terry Irvine (felting and knitting); Barbara Levant (weaving); Leo Pedersen (woodworking); Marion Trimble (collage); JoAnn Turner (painting on nontraditional surfaces); and Russell Work (photography). The aim of the week-long show is to highlight, study and pay homage to Adams by throwing open the workshop doors and inviting the public to view the artists in action. The exploits start Monday, August 6 with a reception from 6-8 pm at Quail’s Nest Arts Centre. From Tuesday to Saturday, the artists can be found exposed in the shadows of the Quail’s Nest from 9 am to 3 pm each day. The goal is to have the pieces completed when the aperture closes at 3 pm sharp on Saturday, August 11. Come check it out at Quail’s Nest Arts Centre at 5840 Airport Street.

Firefighters certified for swift water rescue Lyonel Doherty Oliver Chronicle Oliver firefighters have added another duty to their repertoire by certifying 10 members as swift water rescue technicians. As a result, the department requested that $7,000 be taken from the reserve fund to purchase new rescue equipment, including dry suits, life vests, helmets, boots and rope bags. Oliver Fire Rescue has experienced an increase in the number of times members have to respond to river rescues. Chief Dan Skaros said they were involved in 11 rescues last year, and they anticipate calls this summer as people take to the river. In the past, firefighters were not certified to handle these calls and often had to wait for local search If I’m hanging onto and rescue (SAR) pera log in the river and sonnel before safe rescue techniques could be waiting for someone employed. (to rescue me), I The $7,000 would know the fire decome from the joint Olipartment will be ver Fire Protection Disthere in five to 10 trict and Town reserve. The reserve’s current minutes. SAR would balance is $372,692. The take much longer. primary purpose of the - Linda Larson reserve is for future fleet replacement. Within the next five years, the Town expects to replace one fire truck at an approximate cost of $400,000 to $750,000. Councillor Dave Mattes made a motion to delay the purchase of the rescue equipment to 2013, when it can be included as a budget line item. Mattes said he’s “not sure why we need duplicate equipment,” referring to existing equipment used by SAR. But Councillor Linda Larson said she was going to vote against the motion. “If I’m hanging onto a log in the river and waiting for someone (to rescue me), I know the fire department will be there in five to 10 minutes. SAR would take much longer.” Larson said people know the fire department is very quick to respond. Councillor Jack Bennest also opposed the motion, saying $7,000 is an insignificant amount of money in a multimillion dollar budget. Bennest said he would like to see more cooperation between the fire department and SAR. Mayor Ron Hovanes said he would feel sick if something went wrong due to a lack of equipment. He noted that he recently saw an inflatable caught up in a drop structure on the river, which made him feel uneasy. Ernie Rotheisler, chairman of the fire protection district, said Oliver firefighters are always the first to be called in a crisis. He noted there is a time delay with SAR. Rotheisler said now that firefighters are certified, they need this equipment in case someone falls off a bridge or gets caught in a drop structure. “Money shouldn’t be an issue,” he stated. As for firefighters and SAR working closer together, Rotheisler said he doesn’t see that happening. Larson, Hovanes and Bennest voted against the original motion and passed Larson’s follow-up motion to approve the purchase.

The victim of a brutal assault disputes a lawyer’s claim that she has been banished from the Osoyoos Indian Band reserve. The 29-year-old mother of two said she received no verbal or written notification about being banned from the reserve. She was reacting to a recent statement made by lawyer James Pennington who is defending 33-year-old Brian Douglas Louie against charges of aggravated assault and assault causing bodily harm. The Crown is alleging that Louie brutally assaulted the woman during a May 20 house party on the reserve.

During a recent bail hearing, Pennington told the judge that the victim was banned from the reserve. The victim told the Chronicle that this is totally untrue. “There was no notification of banishment,” she stated. Osoyoos Indian Band Chief Clarence Louie said a ban was discussed, but after talking with police “there was no official word or letter to that effect.” Brian Louie has been denied bail and is scheduled to appear in court on July 25 to set a date for trial.
Community Futures gets $7,500 grant-in-aid Lyonel Doherty Oliver Chronicle
For those who value their
Mom’s ban doesn’t exist
Council has approved a $7,500 grant-inaid to Community Futures for economic development services to small businesses. Mayor Ron Hovanes said the agency’s “Economic Gardening” program has been a huge success in helping small business access important marketing data. He noted Community Futures has done a lot for the organic growing sector and the wine industry. But Councillor Jack Bennest expressed his concern about using local taxpayers’ money to fund a Penticton organization. “It’s not about Oliver, it’s about them. This money should be channeled to businesses in Oliver.” Council amended its grant-in-aid approval to require Community Futures to indicate how Oliver is benefiting from this money.

Manager Mary Ellen Heidt said they have worked with three larger businesses in Oliver. For example, they helped create a new staffing position, increased traffic to one website, and helped introduce a new product to the market. Heidt said the $7,500 will give the agency time to work with Oliver businesses and the South Okanagan Chamber of Commerce. Councillor Linda Larson raised a concern about there being no money for economic development in Oliver’s budget. She doesn’t support a hotel market study because she fears it might be another document that sits on the shelf. “I don’t believe we need to do a marketing study as I believe big business has money and the expertise to do that work themselves.” Larson said she totally supports the Economic Gardening program and making it available for businesses in Oliver.

Tourism group finds treasure in geocaching OTA to promote Oliver in growing adventure Lyonel Doherty Oliver Chronicle The Oliver Tourism Association has been bitten by the “travel bug” as it uses the sport of geocaching to promote the community. Vice-chairman Tony Munday presented the new campaign to council last week, asking for permission to use Town property to cleverly hide geocaches in various locations. Geocaching is a high-tech treasure hunting game played throughout the world by more than five million adventure seekers equipped with GPS devices and GPS-enabled mobile phones. The idea is to locate hidden containers, called geocaches, and then share the experience online. Anyone can use coordinates found on geocaching.com to locate these containers. You use your GPS to navigate close to the site, then use your detective skills to find the item. Once you find it, you leave something of equal or greater value for the next person. Items include small trinkets, such as dog tags, refrigerator magnets, beads and small toys. Munday said there are more than a million caches hidden worldwide, from Antarctica to North America. There is even one in outer space, but good luck finding that one. Oliver is currently home to ap-
proximately 20 geocaches, and OTA hopes to have 20 new ones hidden by the end of July, Munday said. The geocaches in Oliver highlight local features, views and attractions. They could be hidden at a winery, near a storefront, on a walking trail or beside a lamp post. You never know, there could be one hidden near the visitor centre, the skateboard park or a playground near your house. The geocaching system has built-in tracking systems. As people find caches they record their visits in the log book and on the website. Munday said each new cache created by OTA will have a “travel bug” in it which will be tracked as it travels from cache to cache on its way to its final destination. “It’s a neat way of touching a lot of different people and places with a little piece of metal,” Munday said. The association will track all of the information and report back to its members on how the campaign is doing. Munday believes it’s a great way to promote Oliver to potential visitors. Mayor Ron Hovanes agreed, but noted you wouldn’t want to hide a geocache on top of Oliver’s water tower or below the high water mark in Okanagan River. Councillor Linda Larson advised caution about “rattlesnakes in the rocks.” Council gave permission for OTA to hide the geocaches in the community. Okay treasure hunters, start your GPS coordinates.

And Killer did grow. And grow and grow. Come fall grape harvest season she was pretty much ready for leash training and I was looking for another attraction for Wine Festival time. Thought to fashion a mini lariat out of stout thread so I made one up with a slipknot at one end. Figured I could just lasso the tiny loop over her nasty fangs and needle nose, slip it down between her thorax and abdomen then walk her along the saloon bar for the amusement of our guests. Like those trained fleas in Elizabethan circus sideshows. Got this brilliant idea to get Killer’s core temperature down, make her more docile, easier to handle and lasso, so gave her a wink and popped the Mason jar in the freezer for a few short moments. This, the quickcool method for too-warm Farmer’s Daughter Gewurztraminer or for humanely putting down the family goldfish. I got everything organized for the thread trick then opened the freezer door a little later than planned. Oops. Life and death in wine country. Sorry Killer.

Summer is here and shedding season begins Why is it that most dogs shed? How can I keep my dog from shedding so much? Are there ways that For Pet’s Sake can make it easier to deal with dog hair in with Linda Buhler my home. Answer: Dog shedding can be frustrating for all of us, no matter how much we love our dogs. The mess of dog hair can be enough to drive dog owners nuts. All dogs shed to some degree, with the exception of completely hairless dogs. Certain breeds (so-called hypoallergenic dogs) shed very little, while others (namely heavily doublecoated breeds) shed large amounts. Year-round shedding All animals with hair shed on a regular basis. This is part of the natural life cycle of hair shafts within the follicles. All hair shafts go through phases of growth and shedding. The phases affect the rate of hair growth and will vary by breed, age, hormones, environment and overall health of the dog. These factors also contribute to the length and texture of the hair, though genetics is the predominant factor. Dogs with continuously growing hair, like poodles and Yorkshire terriers, have hair shafts with longer life spans and therefore shed very little. On the other hand, dogs like labradors and huskies, have a shorter hair shaft life span and more abundant undercoats, resulting in greater shedding. Shedding season In general, most dogs will shed extra during spring and fall. Dogs are double-coated, meaning they have undercoats. These are secondary hairs that occur around the primary hairs and tend to be shorter and softer. Seasonal shedding occurs as a result of temperature change. This process is often called "blowing coat." When the weather warms, dogs shed their old winter undercoats to make way for a lighter summer coat. Then, when it begins to get cool again, dogs shed their lighter undercoats and grow a thicker, warmer coat for winter. Not all coat types are affected the same
way by temperature changes. For example, dogs like bichons and shih tzus have very little undercoat and therefore shed less when seasons change. However, dogs like newfoundlands and malamutes have heavy, thick undercoats that make shedding much more obvious. Other reasons for shedding Your dog's health can affect shedding rate, so it is important to take note of unexplained excessive shedding. Skin problems, endocrine diseases, nutritional or vitamin deficiencies, and other metabolic disorders can cause hair loss or change the rate of hair growth. It is important to contact your pet practitioner if you are concerned about the rate of shedding in your dog. Keep your dog healthy with proper nutrition. Get control over shedding There's no way to completely stop shedding. It's a healthy process that is necessary for all dogs. Shaving your dog down is not a good idea, as it can interfere with your dog's natural self-cooling and selfwarming mechanism. In the long run, it will not make shedding any less. The key to preventing excess shedding is to keep up with it. Routine grooming is absolutely essential. Brushing or combing your dog helps to remove dead hairs before they can fall on your carpet, bedding and upholstery. It will prevent those dead hairs from forming mats on your dog's coat that can eventually harm the skin. Brushing also distributes the natural, healthy oils produced by the skin throughout the hair coat. Using the right grooming tools can make a great difference. For heavy shedders, a special shedding tool like theFURminator can work wonders. Managing the aftermath of shedding in your home The key is to remove hair before it has a chance to embed itself into your carpet and upholstery. Keeping a pet hair tape roller around for touch-ups throughout the day is an excellent idea. For deeper cleaning of upholstery and small areas, consider using a handheld vacuum designed to pick up pet hair,
The pit house was a home The pit house was a dwelling for year round use. Our people lived in these structures in the harsh environment we now call Canada’s only desert. They were built and made by hand in the old days. Lodge pole pines were gathered at a high altitude, cut down and then pulled behind a horse to their new location. Each log was peeled and readied on a landing site, to be erected in a certain position for a new house. The head builder would be in charge supervising every move. It was his choice as to where the logs were to be placed. Careful consideration was taken, making the roof stable and waterproof. With the help of young strong men and the ingenuity in following plans (which was foolproof), the pit house was designed and built to last. A structural marvel of its time, the pit house could easily house three families consisting of grandparents, parents, young adults, sibling and tiny tots. The more experienced men went hunting, fishing and teaching the younger generations. They were carefully selected at birth and taught their entire lives for the purpose they were destined to do. With the ladder in place, the men and boys could easily get out through the roof. The notches were made to suit the builders step or stride. Persons not knowing the
length of the steps would and could fall. This was the ‘security system’ in the early days in the event of intruders. A fire pit was placed in the middle of the floor which was tended to by the young men and teenagers. It was a specific job that needed to be paid attention too, to not let the fire go out and keeping it at a comfortable heat level. These people were known as the ‘fire keepers.’ Each was trained to watch and know the fires’ every move. The upper shelves are for storage and not to be used as sleeping quarters. The fall from that height would seriously injure someone. It is the job of the boys to take articles of clothing or tools as the elders entered the dwelling after an outing; this showed respect and honour to our people. The pit house itself provided many years of comfortable living and was passed down to the next generation. There is still evidence of past pit houses in our valley tucked away in private places. They are mostly grown over, having little indentations to remind us of their existence. There is not much evidence in some places that prove the pit house even existed. They are kept in our stories and legends for future teachings which the next generation will partake in if they ask how we lived long ago. Bob Etienne, NK’Mip Desert Cultural Centre Interp

Ladies golf scramble sees 132 competitors Debbie Brunelle Special to the Chronicle In spite of Environment Canada’s warning of imminent thunder storms, summer finally arrived on Saturday, July 14 and the day of the tournament turned into a glorious day for the fourth Black and White Ladies Scramble held at Nk’Mip Canyon Desert Golf Course. The course was alive with 132 ladies attired in black and white clothing. Another eight teams were on a waiting list in the event of cancellations. The course pro staff and restaurant staff also dressed in black and white to match the tournament theme. The following teams placed in the first three categories for the tournament: First place from the Princeton Golf Club with a net score of 55.32 was the team of Sharleen Anderson, Sharon Daniels, Colette Berthelsen and Lois Simpson. Second place from the Osoyoos Golf and Country Club with a net score of 58.70 was
the team of Maria Pires, Betty Massie, Leanne Williams and Trish Callarec. Third place from Osoyoos Golf and Country Club with a net score of 58.86 was the team of Flo Fisher, Diana Thomas, Debbie Charlton and Darlene Herbert. The tournament committee (myself, Anne Dalziel, Penny Rivera, Lynn Hoffman, and Irene Lussier) wishes to recognize the wonderful support of the Oliver and surrounding business communities and the Elk’s Lodge #267, without which this tournament could not have happened. The real winners of this event are the children of Oliver who will benefit from a donation to the Oliver Sports and Recreation Department to support sporting events for children who may not otherwise be able to afford them. Much appreciation goes to the volunteers for their behind-the-scenes help with all of the little things that make a tournament successful.
