Resident raises hospital bed concern Lyonel Doherty Oliver Chronicle An Osoyoos resident and long-time supporter of South Okanagan General Hospital is “going public” with her concern that the facility is losing beds to office space. Buryl Slack said the number of patient rooms have decreased significantly over the years, from 40 in 1975 to 18 now. “These were built for patients and should be returned to patients,” she told the Chronicle, noting it’s time to “reclaim” our hospital and get Interior Health into other accommodations. “We have a growing population in the south, and this appears to have been given no consideration,” she said in a letter to the RDOS. Slack stated the hospital was initially built for patient treatment and care, and offices were housed elsewhere. She noted that government owned premises currently sit vacant or partly vacant in both Oliver and Osoyoos. Lisa Braman, communications officer for Interior Health (IH), said the south wing of SOGH was closed about 10 years ago. A couple of years later it was determined that locating health centre services in that vacant space would be a
great benefit to the community as this would allow community services to be located together rather than all over town. “A further benefit of co-locating acute and community services is the proximity of the care providers to one another,” Braman said. For example, proximity enables better communication between complex care teams when building a plan for a patient moving through the continuum of health care services (moving out of acute care and through community services back to home or into residential care if that’s what is needed). Braman said the rooms Slack is concerned with were originally designed and built as twobed rooms. From time to time some of those rooms have had only one bed in them depending upon capacity, she noted. Janice Perrino, chair of the Okanagan Similkameen Regional Hospital District, said she can’t fathom patient rooms being whittled away and taken over by IH. “Oh my goodness, I know that isn’t the reality. Mrs. Slack is simply a citizen with an opinion.” Area C director Allan Patton said this is not the regional district’s mandate, but said closing beds at SOGH and replacing them with offices is
not the case. But Slack said she met with chief of staff Dr. Peter Entwistle who didn’t share her opinion. “He acknowledged that the rooms were disappearing and had no intention of giving them back.” Slack said she wants to make people aware of the situation and is asking IH for a public meeting in Oliver. Sherry Uribe, health services administrator at SOGH, said it made sense to bring all community health care services in Oliver under one roof in 2005 (in the empty south wing). This helped build relationships and improve efficiency, Uribe said. If nurses had a question, all they had to do was walk down the hall and get the answer. The wing accommodates social workers, nutritionists, public health nurses, and long-term care staff. Uribe said the hospital was operating with 18 acute care beds when she started working there. She noted that SOGH has space for 25 beds, but operating at 18 is ideal. She stated that no one else has raised a concern about this. “I think it still makes sense (to bring all these health services together in one location),” Uribe said.

A close call - Campers at Lakeside Resort were fortunate to have escaped injury during last Friday’s wind storm in Oliver. Many trees were uprooted and some broke like toothpicks precariously close to RVs and trailers.

Police briefs Thief steals bicycles
An Oliver resident residing in the 400 block of Gamay Court reported the theft of two bicycles from his carport recently. One of the bikes was a white lady’s Raleigh mountain bike with wide tires, a carrier on the back and chrome handle bars. The other bicycle was a blue Kona Lanai valued at approximately $465. Anyone with information should contact the local RCMP detachment at 250-498-3422.
Campsites report thefts
Numerous nocturnal thefts from coolers and campsites are being reported by area campgrounds. Sergeant Ken Harrington from the Oliver RCMP said the thefts can be attributed to local youth and to some of the transient workers who pass through the South Okanagan every summer. “Local residents are asked to watch out for suspicious activity and contact the RCMP detachment accordingly,” Harrington said. He added that campground owners are also asked to ensure that their clients are continually updated on this concern.
Storm keeps cops busy
On July 20, a severe storm kept local RCMP and other emergency services personnel very busy between 2:453:15 pm. Sergeant Ken Harrington said they responded to approximately 20 separate requests for service as a result of the storm. “The Oliver detachment wishes to convey its appreciation to all support agencies for the cooperative effort that was maintained during this significant event.”
Putting a damper on it - Last Friday’s storm kept firefighters hopping from one scene to the next. Here, members extinguish a grass fire on Campsite Court near Inkaneep Provincial Park. Lightning was the suspected cause.

Time to end extreme races
ow many more horses will suffer and die before the Calgary Stampede wakes up? The recent death of three horses in the chuckwagon races is a travesty disguised as entertainment. These horses are forced into such stress that accidents are bound to occur while running at breakneck speed. In the latest incident, one horse died of a ruptured aortic aneurysm, while the other two had to be euthanized for serious injuries. According to the Calgary Animal Rights Coalition, 84 animals have died at the stampede since 1986. So isn’t it time we ended this archaic blood sport? Horses aren’t gladiators of Rome. We don’t dispute the fact that horses are born to run, but they shouldn’t be subjected to such high safety risks for pure entertainment value. A good example is the archaic spectacle known as the “suicide race” in Omak, or the steeplechase in Great Britain. The accidents that occur in these events are truly heartbreaking and preventable. Why would horse lovers subject their animals to such risk for other people’s pleasure? We understand the thrill of competition, but not at the expense of the animal. Calf roping is another sport that has been called into question by animal rights groups. To purposely subject a calf to whiplash with a rope around its neck is a cruel form of entertainment. Seeing a calf jerked off its feet while the cowboy races to hogtie the animal is far from ethical. Would society allow human-roping in a dusty arena in the name of bragging rights and entertainment? That would be too barbaric and inhumane. Oh, really? We’re not suggesting a ban on horse racing in general, but we think “extreme” events such as the suicide race and chuckwagon competitions should be shelved. It’s time we move beyond these gladiator sports and treat our animals like real members of the family.

Hospital losing beds/rooms to IH offices taking over SOGH
At the end of May, while visiting my husband who was a patient at SOGH, I was made aware that patient beds/ rooms had been largely replaced by offices. I subsequently was encouraged to do what I do best, to make people aware and to make them think towards an acceptable solution. Former chair of our last local board, Bea Becker and MLA John Slater both point out that there are government owned premises available in both Oliver and Osoyoos. Doctors say, get the offices out and give us our rooms back and we will not have to “double bunk” our patients. Nurses need room to work efficiently. Past board members from the last local board, four of us in Osoyoos, say we were totally unaware of the extent to which rooms had been taken over, as was the general public. We had passed it on in good faith. Interior Health came into being quite quickly at the end of 2001. Set out to be responsible to government, “patients first” and to protect local input . . . we have gone from local board to health board, where we had one rep from each town in our area, to IH where our board representative lives in Penticton. Not faulting him but that is the present structure. This is the way I explained the situation to those from a distance. If you will bear with me I will follow that with a more local perspective.
I call our efforts “project recovery.” People have had just about enough of everything. I know the “good old days” have gone forever, but we have reached the “stop the world I want to get off stage.” Locally it became apparent that while we were minding our own business, Interior Health has quietly continued the move to bring all possible services under one roof, and that roof happens to be the one over our hospital in Oliver. (The offices are health related to be sure, but the patient rooms should never have been taken away from active duty.) The result of this is that beds have been taken over by desks. We are asking to have these returned, but of course our pleas have been falling on deaf ears. We have been canvassing only to discover that most people, including us old board members were totally unaware of the extent to which they seem to have been given carte blanche. In 1944, for those of you who go back that far (in terms of age or residence), you will remember that the Sisters of St. Anne ran the new hospital, St. Martin’s, efficiently and selflessly, working their own garden and preserving so that patients could enjoy fresh fruits and vegetables. In time a new, larger hospital was required, and SOGH came into being. Our mothers belonged to the hospital auxiliary, raising funds (which still happens today). Our Continued on Pg A5...

Beds taken over by IH offices in local hospital board members served without pay for a community service they believed in, but over the years what we have has been slowly chipped away . . . we have fought and lost as the doctors will tell you privately. Today we have a building, but patients are now considered a dwindling asset to the “master plan.” Doctors tell that in 1975 we had 40 beds, now down to 18 ( and in a pinch they might squeeze in four more). Our retired doctor, a former board member, says we need those beds as 18 is dangerously low. Others say reclaim our hospital, get the offices back out into other accommodation . . . kick “the suits” out. The public so far has agreed. At the Oliver Senior Centre they did their own canvass for us and were happy to report that of 67 members and staff the answer was 67 in support of our efforts, and I would say that sounds like 100 per cent. Rooms renovated in our term for patients in transition were for one person, large bathroom and a few homey touches. The rooms now have two beds, two nightstands and two overbed tables; there is no room even for a chair. On June 18 the chief of staff, at the meeting where I was kindly invited to meet three people face to face said (and by the way, only he showed up) that until all pos-
sible community services were up and running smoothly, returning rooms would be the last thing on his priority list. This would likely not happen because it would take money away from more important areas. But what could be more important to us than a bed being available when needed? We have canvassed, met and corresponded with key personnel, have documented, contacted media, and are now keeping our promise to go public. We will be asking IH for an open meeting, once some replies are in our hands and will be reporting on the outcome. According to the record, the Ministry of Health is “to hold health authorities accountable.” Governments are always divesting and distancing themselves from responsibility. We cannot allow ourselves to fall through the cracks . . . we must have asked for, voted for, are taxed for, and are entitled to the original number of rooms planned for and built for us. This is by no means the end of the story, we will keep in touch.

Where’s my wine? Where’s my money? That’s what some Oliver residents are asking after doing business with Vintage Vines on Station Street. The shop is now closed tighter than a wine cork and the building is for sale. Joan Rankin ordered 30 bottles of wine from the business on May 10 and paid cash (nearly $170) because the proprietor said he was having trouble with VISA. When she came back from holidays last week, the shop was closed. So she phoned the number on the door. Rankin said the landlord, M. Mclaren, told her the shop owner left town and allegedly bilked about 30 customers, who have no recourse. “I’m going to the police to file a complaint . . . I doubt if I’ll ever get my money back . . . but I want this guy to be held accountable,” Rankin said. She described the owner as being quiet and polite. “The only flag that was raised was he said he was having trouble with VISA.” Rankin said she would have been reimbursed by the company if she had used her credit card. The Chronicle attempted to contact Mclaren but he didn’t return the phone call. Cathy Cowan, the Town’s corporate officer, said a couple of Vintage Vines customers contacted staff for information about the business. “It had apparently been closed for several days and they were unable to collect the produce they had pre-paid for. The owner

was not returning calls or answering messages. Staff tried contacting the business owner without success.” Cowan said there was a telephone number posted on the door, but the customers didn’t get a response to their messages. Staff then called the number and left voicemail. Cowan noted that Mclaren, the owner of the building, called staff later that day. “Mclaren advised staff that it looked as though his tenant had abandoned the business and possibly left Oliver.” Town staff advised the customer who had paid by charge card that, in all likelihood, he would be able to have the charge reversed by his credit card company. They advised the customer who had paid by cheque that he might unfortunately have to bear the loss. Cowan said the business license was issued to David Pereschuk from Oliver, who could not be reached for comment. The Town received payment for the licence in March, but there was no request for a refund or further communication from the business owner, Cowan stated. The corporate officer said when business owners abandon their business in this way, the consumers should approach Consumer Protection BC as they may have some information that would assist them. The link to the website is http://www. consumerprotectionbc.ca Sergeant Ken Harrington from the Oliver RCMP said only a couple of people had filed complaints at the detachment. He noted the case is more of a civil matter and he doubts the RCMP will investigate.

Public hearing hears no peep about crushing Lyonel Doherty Oliver Chronicle Not a single peep was heard about gravel crushing at last week’s public hearing on the Town’s new zoning bylaw. Council gave third reading to the bylaw in a nearly empty community hall, where only seven people showed up on July 16. In fact, there were more Town councillors and consultants than residents, which made for a short hearing. The bylaw, which regulates land use and buildings, is being updated and modernized. Some key changes include: reduced front yard setbacks in the single family residential zone, relaxed parking requirements in the new Town Centre zone, and the prohibition of asphalt mixing plants in the industrial (M2) zone. The M2 zone was previously identified as “light industrial,” but after hearing from three people at the July 16th public hearing, council changed it to simply industrial, with no reference to light or heavy. Property owner Bill Ross recommended the change, which was supported by Maple Street landowner Chris Jentsch.
“Why make something heavy or light, just make it straight ‘industrial’ and leave it at that?” Jentsch said. Industrial property owner Don Sabyan agreed. “You’re going to scare a lot of people away if you put the words ‘light industrial.’” Municipal Manager Tom Szalay said Oliver doesn’t have any property assessed as heavy industrial. He noted the proposed M2 (light industrial) zone was recommended by the consultants. Permitted uses in the industrial zone include abattoirs, auto recycling, concrete mixing plants, construction services, sawmills, manufacturing and gravel crushing. Earlier this year, a small group of Sawmill Road residents signed a petition opposing gravel crushing. Their fight was against the gravel processing operation run by Jentsch. They argued that such operations should not be located close to residential areas because of health, dust and noise concerns. The Town held a meeting with industrial property owners, who stated they wanted gravel crushing as a permitted use. A subsequent meeting with the general public resulted in many people saying they didn’t want gravel crushing.
FortisBC’s new residential conservation rate
Sawmill Road homeowner Meranda Elliott, who led the petition, said she couldn’t attend the meeting because she had other plans. “Unfortunately, I can’t fight this battle on my own, so I give up,” she told the Chronicle. At the meeting, Sabyan asked if vehicle storage was a permitted use in the industrial zone. Consultant Joel Short from Urban Systems confirmed that storage is a separate use permitted under “service industry establishment.” Council is expecting to adopt the bylaw after the Ministry of Transportation gives its approval. People can view the bylaw on the Town of Oliver website at www.oliver.ca. Mayor Ron Hovanes agreed the turnout for the public hearing was poor. “It is summer but I am told that when the public hearing was held during summer over the Southwinds Crossing (shopping centre), it was packed.” He said industrial park neighbours, landowners and the general public were all engaged in zoning bylaw issue, and the public hearing was well advertised. “I believe that those who took part throughout this process understood that asphalt plants were removed from the draft and that we have one gravel crush operation that would have been grandfathered regardless of council’s direction,” Hovanes said.
FortisBC introduced a new residential two-tier conservation rate for electricity customers on July 1, 2012. About 75 per cent of electricity customers will pay about the same or less on this new rate, with some paying more based on electricity consumption. To learn more about the new residential conservation rate or to calculate your bill, visit fortisbc.com/rcr or call 1-866-436-7847.

Break and enters plague town in first quarter RCMP provides crime statistics and information on the suspects Lyonel Doherty Oliver Chronicle
Break and enters kept Oliver RCMP busy during the first quarter of 2012 as they investigated 13 cases, compared to six in the first quarter of 2011. In a recent policing report, Sgt. Ken Harrington said four of this quarter’s break and enter files were residential cases committed by one male overnight on March 5-6. The 28-year-old known offender broke into four homes in the area of McKinney Road and 81st Street. “He was arrested after a resident of the fourth house reported that he was in her bedroom holding a knife,” said Harrington, who noted the suspect fled on foot. The resident advised police that she recognized the male and could identify him. Police arrested him soon afterwards. He pleaded guilty on May 15 to several charges including home invasion, possession of a weapon, and theft. Harrington said the man remains in custody await-
ing sentencing. Harrington said vehicle crime, theft, cause disturbance and mischief were lower than last year’s numbers. During the first quarter of 2012, the South Okanagan integrated detachment responded to 586 calls for service in Oliver, compared to 550 calls during the first quarter of 2011. This reflects a 6.5 per cent increase. In the first quarter of this year, there were 10 assaults, eight sexual assaults, 10 thefts from vehicles, eight causing a disturbance, and 22 mischief files. Harrington said the number of sexual assault reports increased this period compared to last year’s number (three). “This increase can be attributed in part to four reports relating to one male suspect who has been accused of inappropriately touching several female victims.” Harrington said charges were forwarded to the Crown but have not been approved due to a lack of a substantial likelihood of conviction. The RCMP investigated 12 drug offences in Oliver during the first quarter of 2012. Eleven of these files involved drug possession only (cannabis, methamphetamine, LSD and paraphernalia).
Store gets new pumps Roy Heuckendorff Special to the Chronicle When Art Taylor found out that the Petro Canada he manages at the Nk’Mip convenience store was going to receive new fuel pumps with card readers, he was a happy fellow indeed. After all, now that “pay before you pump” legislation has been in effect for some time, people find it more and more convenient to use their debit or credit cards to make their fuel purchases right at the pump. And such was to be the case with the new fuel pumps and card readers at the Petro Canada Nk’Mip convenience store. But one day one of the new units began to malfunction. And then another one. And another. And yet another still — until seven new units were malfunctioning. Taylor, faced not only malfunctioning fuel pumps but also a mystery as to why the pumps weren’t working properly in the first place, and since the warranties had run out he needed a solution fast. Ultimately the
source of the problem was narrowed down to a system software problem or a faulty electrical ground component. It cost the Nk'Mip convenience store $6,000 to resolve the issue. Taylor, who was worried about how his customers might react, was most appreciative of his customers’ loyalty, and has planned a customer appreciation day for Friday, August 3 starting at 10 am. “I am very sorry for inconveniencing our customers for the duration of the fix,” said Taylor. “But we hope to show our appreciation on Friday and can thank everyone who comes down personally.” For those who attend, customer appreciation day will have all kinds of giveaways, special two for one deals, and food and beverages. Taylor said that customers can also expect chip readers on all pumps in the near future, bringing the Nk’Mip convenience store up to speed on the new technologies available for the retail gas industry’s use.
On February 21 police attended a residence in the 33,700 block of 109th Street and seized more than 300 low quality marijuana plants, believed to have been used to create hash oil. Between January and March of this year, police issued two 24-hour driving prohibitions and one, three-day immediate roadside prohibition. An additional five Oliver drivers were also charged with impaired driving or related offences. Crime Stoppers received three tips relating to events in Oliver during the first quarter, resulting in four arrests and four charges laid. These tips led to the recovery of $485 worth of property, five weapons and $650 worth of drugs. Harrington said there are currently no individuals in the Oliver area who match the criteria for chronic nuisance offender. He stated the detachment stays in regular contact with youth probation and is aware of youth who may be under conditions. He noted that police perform regular curfew checks on these youth to ensure compliance. The Restorative Justice Committee is active in Oliver, but no files were referred in the first quarter of 2012.

In all six communities it is administered by the Thompson Okanagan Tourism Association. The local communities and programs receiving CTO funding are: Oliver (branding implementation $2,000; web marketing $2,000; visitor guide $3,200; and image bank $2,000, for a total of $9,200). Okanagan Falls (visitor guide/map $1,000; interpretive map/guide $1,000; website enhancements $1,000; and image bank $1,000, for a total of $4,000). Osoyoos (Dimestore Fisherman TV show $5,000; web-

Boundary Alliance (regional map $3,000; image bank $2,000; signage designs $8,000; website enhancements $2,000; and travel shows $2,000, for a total of $17,000). Tourism is one of the key economic sectors identified in Canada Starts Here: The BC Jobs Plan. The province’s new tourism strategy builds on the Jobs Plan, providing a framework for government and industry to work together to attract more visitors and create jobs for British Columbians. The strategy focuses on increasing the number of visitors by building on the global awareness generated by the 2010 Olympic Winter Games. “These six communities all have great attractions
and are great places to spend a vacation. This funding is intended to help them get the word out, attract tourism traffic, and have the opportunity to share and experience the Boundary Similkameen,” said BoundarySimilkameen MLA John Slater. The CTO program is administered by the province’s six regional destination marketing organizations which receive the funding from the Ministry of Jobs, Tourism and Innovation. Successful applicants must have matching funds for their projects and they receive their funding after successful completion of their projects. This is the fifth year the CTO program has been in operation, and it has grown in popularity each year. Both marketing and development projects are eligible under the program which reimburses communities following successful completion of their approved projects.

A rare treat - Members of the Willowbrook Girls’ Pony Club were treated to a rare opportunity recently when area residents Rita and Egon Jensen arrived at the outdoor riding arena in a
1921 Studebaker horse drawn wagon pulled by Calvin and Hobbes, a team of Norwegian Fjords. The girls were given a short history of draft horses and listened while Egon explained the various parts of the harness, right from the brow band to the whipple tree. The highlight came when each member took a turn driving the team around the arena. Photo contributed

Fruit pickers live life of freedom in Oliver Lyonel Doherty Oliver Chronicle They say you’ve been out wandering, they say you’ve travelled far. Sit down young stranger and tell us who you are – Gordon Lightfoot. Gabriel Babin can relate to the Canadian balladeer’s song about a young man on a journey to find himself. “I’ve learned more in three weeks (travelling) than a whole year in school,” said the 19-year-old student from Montreal. It took Babin 10 days to hitchhike to Oliver from Quebec. “I felt free. All I had was on my back.” The tanned student is studying languages and came to Oliver to practice his English. He also speaks French and Spanish, and is learning German and Arabic. Babin’s secret to hitchhiking is simple – smile a lot. He recalled one driver in Sault Ste. Marie who turned around and picked him up because of his smile. That Babin only makes ride turned into some about $30 a day, food and shelter. Most of the time Babin enough to feed slept in his tent next to himself. He has the highway. He was learned how to cook rained on once in Caloatmeal, eggs and gary. pasta, and discovBabin’s life on the road is uncomplicated. He’s in ered that five dollars no rush to get anywhere, can keep you going and whenever he feels on chili for a week. lonely he takes out his Martin backpacker guitar and plays a tune. For Babin, each ride is a story, and he’s got a few to tell. While thumbing a ride to Winnipeg, an aboriginal fellow took him in. The guy started talking about his wife and asked Babin if he wanted to make love to her. The young traveller didn’t know what to say, and was even more shocked when the driver suggested they could have a “threesome.” Soon, Babin found himself in the man’s house, where he met the guy’s wife and six children. Nothing else happened. On the road again, a van stopped and the driver said he could give Babin a short ride or they could go to the beach. He’s glad he chose the beach because he ate steak, drank beer and took a paddle boat for a spin. “Everyone was so nice. It was an awesome experience,” he recalled, noting that strangers can be so friendly. The day after Babin arrived in Oliver, he found a job picking cherries, but it was hard getting up at 5 am. “But I’m doing something for humanity, I’m helping feed people.” Babin only makes about $30 a day, enough to feed himself. He has learned how to cook oatmeal, eggs and pasta, and discovered that five dollars can keep you going on chili for a week. Babin said Oliver is a peaceful place where everybody says “hi.” He enjoys the camaraderie among other pickers in Lions Park, but noted that some drink too much. He imitated one guy by curling up his lip like Billy Idol and slurring his words in an incomprehensible garble. His friend, 22-year-old Kevin Bourassa, chortled. Bourassa came to Oliver from Quebec City in only four days via a “horrible” bus ride, during which time he got no sleep and had to listen to old people making strange noises.
Fruit pickers and freedom seekers Kevin Bourassa (left) and Gabriel Babin let life deal the cards and they play along with no regrets. The travellers came to Oliver for a little adventure and a little coin, both of which they found.

That made him appreciate the peaceful solitude of Oliver even more. Bourassa gets his gentle nature from meditation, and loves walking around at 2 am. Babin loves the fact you can see the stars at night. “In Montreal you don’t see the stars because of light pollution.” When asked about Loose Bay campground north of Oliver, Bourassa said you don’t want to stay there for more than a week. Sometimes it can be described as “the day after Woodstock,” he noted . . . “too intense.” But if you want to meet people with an open mind, Loose Bay is the place, CUSTOMER APPRECIATION DAY

Bourassa said. The young freedom seeker said he loves this lifestyle. “Last year in Guatemala I discovered this is the way I want to live. The only thing I like is being on the road, being free.” Bourassa said he wouldn’t like to do the same thing from nine to five every day. Babin agreed, saying people should be aware of the moment with no regrets. If you feel regret at age 50, it’s too late, man. Sometimes it did get lonely, but it taught me how to cry. And the laughter came too easy for life to pass me by – Gordon Lightfoot.

APC wants to preserve public KVR corridor Lyonel Doherty Oliver Chronicle Area C’s Advisory Planning Commission (APC) has denied a farmer’s application to expand his operation over part of the KVR right-of-way north of Oliver. Director Allan Patton said the commission had problems with the application by Inderjit and Harvinder Sandhu, who didn’t attend the July 17 meeting. The Sandhus want a Crown land tenure for intensive agriculture purposes over part of the former Kettle Valley Railway between Island Road and 378th Avenue (Park Rill Road). The area is undeveloped and situated within the Agricultural Land Reserve. The applicant wants to cultivate the land to grow vegetables, an extension of his existing farmland. The land in question is approximately 0.68 hectares, while the proposed term of the lease could be up to 30 years.
Regional district planner Christopher Garrish said agriculture is a permitted use on this land, but he noted the KVR right-ofway is a public recreation corridor. He said strategic work has been conducted in relation to the KVR in the South Okanagan as it pertains to trails in Area C and the Town of Oliver. Garrish said the Town’s trails master plan includes securing tenure on portions of the KVR. “To date, the focus has been the Okanagan River channel trail as the principal hiking and biking trail in this area.” Considering the intent to retain the KVR for future recreational use, the RDOS does not favour the leasing of portions of the KVR to private interests, Garrish said. Patton said it’s disconcerting that the applicants want a 30-year lease from the province, which the RDOS could not legally cancel. He noted the right-of-way could be used for the hike and bike trail or a river restoration project.

ting up the lawn sprinkler on the upper deck. I lugged the sprinkler upstairs, bolted it down, looped a string around the world’s longest garden hose, climbed up on the deck and pulled it behind me. The hose kinked and when I tugged the cord the sprinkler head broke off and all hell broke loose when water hit the heated bbq. Hissed, snorted and threw its lid up a foot or so before an on-off knob broke off. Then I had that ominous pukey smell of escaping propane to contend with. Then I bought one of those el-cheapo camping showers that hangs high on tree branches. Got the whole thing just so, then turned the lever and got set to enjoy an outdoor cooling off. Hung my little bag in the breeze near the front of the house, which is really the back of the house. Thought I’d try it out in a private place, stripped down to my dive watch and stepped under the spray. A perfect solution for a broiling hot afternoon. Perfect ‘til a photographer from Vancouver came around the corner to find me. Not a pretty sight, and not too cool in wine country. And of course if you’re a winery guy you get to concoct all manner of cold wine drinks. Concept is that if you cool your inside, your outside cools automatically. Am now experimenting with vanilla ice cream and Dry Cab Franc Rose… all in the blender. Now I can sit under the mister and just fall asleepin the sun and roast to the same pigskin colour as my friend three storeys below.

Water fight - Sun Fun kids took full advantage of last week’s water fight in the community park, where every participant got soaking wet. They had to have eyes in the back of their heads to watch for incoming water bombers. In other words, you couldn’t trust anyone during the skirmish.

COMMUNITY CLASSIFIEDS OBITUARY In loving memory
Esther Clara Svendsen / Schelstad June 21, 1921 – July 14, 2012
Esther was born on t h e Kristiansen family farm near Canwood, Saskatchewan, being delivered by a local mid-wife. She passed away peacefully, with family at her side, in the early hours of July 14th, at South Okanagan General Hospital in Oliver, B.C. Esther spent her younger years on the family farm, along with her mother, father and 9 siblings. She left the farm in 1939, after marrying Aaron Viggo Svendsen. She moved to Osoyoos with Viggo and their young family of 3 in 1948, when Viggo accepted a position as sawyer at Mountainside Sawmill, just to the east of Osoyoos, in Christian Valley. Two additional children were born, and over the following years, the family became involved in their own logging, sawmill and planer mill operations. Esther spent a good part of many summers living and looking after her children near the summit of Mount Kobau, at the Svendsen family saw and planer mills located there. Some years after Viggo’s death in 1964, she was reacquainted with an old family friend, and in 1971 she married Melvin Schelstad, and returned to Saskatchewan to live on his family’s farm near Canwood. Towards the Fall of 1981, after Melvin retired from farming, they returned to Osoyoos to spend their retirement years closer to Esther’s family. Shortly after Melvin passed away in 2000, Esther moved in to the White Sands condominiums and lived there, looking after herself, until her death. Esther was predeceased by her mother, (Hanna); father, (Sedvard); husbands, Viggo and Melvin; older sisters, Signe and Annie; younger sister, Leona; older brothers, Helmer and Art; and younger brothers, Sigurd and Erling. She is survived by her older sister, Krystal (Alberta) and her younger sister, Clarice (Saskatchewan); daughter, Arlene York (Everett, WA.); sons, Verne, Sidney and Dwayne Svendsen (Osoyoos); and son, Kevin Svendsen (Princeton). Esther has 10 grandchildren, 21 great-grandchildren and two great-great-grandchildren. Over the years, Esther worked as a housewife and a housekeeper. She was employed by the Osoyoos Co-op Packinghouse for some time, and rounded out her working lifetime as a clerk, working in more than one Osoyoos business. There were many family ﬁshing, picnicking, and camping trips to numerous local lakes and streams in Esther’s life. Trips back to Saskatchewan to visit family and friends were common. A favourite trip for her was when she accompanied her elderly father back to visit family in his home country of Norway. She and Melvin spent an enjoyable time visiting the Islands of Hawaii shortly after being married. A summer trip to Alabama to spend some time with her older sister Signe was thoroughly enjoyed by both sisters. Esther was a long-time member of the Osoyoos United Church. She always looked forward to her Sunday visits with fellow worshippers and with her Lord. She was a past member of the United Church’s Dorcas Unit and church choir. Hobbies and interests included cooking, baking and seeing to it that no one who came for a visit went away hungry. She also enjoyed walking, gardening, knitting, crocheting, reading, camping, crafts, singing and listening to music and songs, working on jigsaw puzzles and dancing. At her granddaughter Jamie’s wedding, held in Osoyoos just prior to her passing, Esther was not only up on the dance ﬂoor, but insisting that each of her sons present, were up there with her, trying to keep up. Esther has had a long and rewarding life. She has had a positive and lasting inﬂuence on all of those who were fortunate enough to have met her. She is now at peace, with Her Lord. At Esther’s request, she is to be cremated. A family, graveside urn interment and committal will be held on Friday, July 27th at 11:00 am at the Osoyoos Lakeview Cemetery. A ‘Celebration of Esther’s Life’ will take place on Saturday, July 28th at 11:00 am, at the Osoyoos United Church. Family would like to thank all of Mom’s good neighbours and friends, Dr. Tarr and the nurses and staff at South Okanagan General Hospital, Reverend Hershey, and Jolly Gill and her staff for all of the caring, kindness and devotion shown to Mom throughout her last years with us. In lieu of ﬂowers, donations gratefully accepted for: Heart and Stroke Foundation of B.C. (4 -1551 Sutherland Ave., Kelowna, B.C. V1Y 9M9) B.C. Cancer Foundation (399 Royal Ave., Kelowna, B.C.

She was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba where she was educated and was proud to relate the story that she was likely the first female to exceed 100 MPH in a speedster motorcar. Speed was a passion that stayed with her until she gave up her driver’s licence in her late eighties. She was predeceased by partners, Joseph A. Champagne, Herman H. Schafer, Carl Webster and Jay McKeage; also by stepson, George Schafer and grandson Craig Currie. She is survived by her daughter, Jo-ann (Norman) Jaques of Armstrong; stepdaughter, Jerry (Harold) Schafer/Piche of Penticton; son, Terry (Robbie) Schafer of Oliver; grandsons, Jason and Corey; granddaughters, Lisa and Kristie; and great-grandchildren, Jesse, Kyra, Duncan, Spencer, Brendan, Brady, Sofie, Jake and Kennedy. After moving to the west coast with her first husband she operated their little store until her husband Joe passed away. Sometime later she found herself up the coast at Shearwater in a sawmill and boatworks operation with her second husband Herman Schafer. There she was a trail blazer in being the first lady boat skipper in the area. They eventually moved to the Okanagan and had an orchard and a taxi service in Summerland. They eventually moved to Oliver to take over a motel and to build a new mobile home park and though Herman unfortunately passed away Oliver remained Monique’s home for the last four decades. She enjoyed travelling and toured North America before visiting Australia, New Zealand, the Cook Islands, Hawaii and Great Britain. Gardening was a passion and she loved to sew, play cards at the Senior Centre and spend time with family and friends. In her 60’s she took up skiing and golf and enjoyed those sports immensely. The Art Club and painting occupied much of her time. Monique also volunteered at the Hospital Auxiliary Thrift Shop for 21 years and the Senior’s Centre in its formative years. A private memorial will be held for her at the Schafer residence on Island Way on Oct. 14, 2012 where a tree will be planted in her memory. The family would like to express their sincerest thanks to Dr. Mark Hamilton and the staff of McKinney Place for making Monique’s last days and hours as comfortable as possible.

B16 Oliver Chronicle Wednesday, July 25, 2012
‘Any Child Can Join’ Roy Heuckendorff Special to the Chronicle The Any Child Can Join (ACCJ) program, designed to help local underprivileged children participate in Oliver Parks and Recreation programming, received a huge boost last Wednesday when the Oliver Osoyoos Winery Association (OOWA) made a contribution of $2,000 to the program. Tim Martiniuk, president of the OOWA, said the association is happy to donate to such a worthy cause. “The ACCJ program helps many local youth participate in the terrific number of programs Oliver Parks and Rec offers,” said Martiniuk. “We’re proud of our contribution to the program’s success.” The ACCJ is a program dedicated to helping children participate in Parks and Recreation programming despite financial barriers. Katie Eaton, recreation programming director for Oliver, was quick to point out how important these donations are. “These kinds of donations go a long way toward helping develop healthy children, healthy families, and healthy communities,” said Eaton. “We are grateful to the Oliver Osoyoos Winery Association for their support and generosity.” The ACCJ gives $150 to qualified applicants for each program it offers and tries to help as many children as possible. Other major sponsors that help keep the ACCJ program running are Branch 97 of the Royal Canadian Legion and the Oliver Elks Club. Both organizations donate thousands of dollars annually.
Kent Dagenais said the legion raises money for the ACCJ program through meat and 50/50 draws, both of which enabled a $5,000 donation this year — a generous amount to be sure. “I think it makes people feel good knowing where the proceeds from our fundraisers go,” said Dagenais. “And there’s no better place to start giving than with our youth.” Martiniuk agreed, and pointed out how highly successful creative fundraising strategies can be. He cites the OOWA’s HalfCorked Marathon and Banee Pig Out as just two events that not only help raise money for programs like the ACCJ but also strike an economic development cord in the areas of sports and cultural tourism. The OOWA is getting big bang for its event and marketing budgets and that success is translating into benefits for other local organizations and programs. The ACCJ gives $150 to children applicants who would otherwise be unable to register for any of the many programs Parks and Recreation offers. The ACCJ program differs from the Canadian Tire Jump Start program in that only Parks and Recreation programming qualifies for funding. This non-duplication of effort expands funding opportunities for children across a broader range of programs and sees complimentary efforts producing more effective results.
