Farmer left ‘high and dry’ from river project Lyonel Doherty Oliver Chronicle A long-time farmer in Oliver is growing more than food, he’s growing frustrated at not being able to irrigate his crops effectively and losing money at the same time. Gordon Forbes said one-quarter of his family’s organic farm on Meadows Drive cannot be irrigated as a result of inaction stemming from the Okanagan River Restoration Initiative. His troubles began three years ago when the irrigation pipe he was using was moved to the middle of the river to make way for the restoration project. As predicted by Forbes, this caused sand to infiltrate his irrigation system. The organic grower expressed his concern when Mould Engineering from Kelowna modified his intake to the middle of the river. “I said it’s not going to work, but they’re all I said it’s not going engineers with universito work, but they’re ty degrees . . . that summer we got silt and sand all engineers with (in the intake) and we university degrees. lost two acres of ground . . .that summer we crop.” got silt and sand The engineering firm (in the intake) and agreed that the logical solution was to conwe lost two acres of struct wells for the farm, ground crop. but Forbes was later told - Gordon Forbes there was no money left in the budget for that. This left him “high and dry,” so to speak, while constantly trying to unclog his irrigation spinners and drip lines. He noted that trying to clean the intake screen at the bottom of the river would be “suicide.” “It’s frustrating,” Forbes said, noting he hasn’t been able to plant the back section (three acres) of his farm for the last three years. He estimates his loss in organic ground crops to be approximately $20,000 per acre. Forbes tried to create dialogue with Karilyn Long from Okanagan Nation Alliance, one of the main partners in the river restoration project, but hasn’t seen much success. It was only when he involved local politicians that dialogue improved. Instead of waiting for a solution to drop from the sky, Forbes decided to bypass the initial engineering changes and install (at his expense) temporary intakes at the side of the river. But this still doesn’t solve the problem. Forbes finally approached the Town of Oliver, which wrote him a letter of support and temporarily allowed him to use municipal water for his crops, but it cost him $2,600 last summer.

Irrigation problem frustrates grower Even with this water, the family still can’t expand its ground crops, only maintain what it currently has. Forbes said they totally support the river restoration program, but it doesn’t look like the partners involved in the project support local farmers, he stated. “We never created these problems yet we have been left to find the solutions.” Southern Interior MP Alex Atamanenko said Forbes continues to get the runaround from people responsible for this project. “All Forbes is asking for is the water volume and quality they were initially promised by project managers and which they could always rely upon before the river restoration began.” Atamanenko said the loss of production and economic hardship the irrigation problems are creating are becoming unsustainable for the Forbes farm. Therefore, he has asked BC Agriculture Minister Don McRae to intervene to ensure those responsible fulfill their obligations. “Urgent action is required immediately or a 70-year-old organic farm will soon be lost forever,” Ata-

manenko said. Stu Mould from Mould Engineering said he wasn’t authorized to provide details until the issue was discussed with his client, the Ministry of Forest, Lands and Natural Resource Operations. He did say that Atamanenko’s release contained errors and omissions. Karilyn Long from Okanagan Nation Alliance said the river restoration group has had extensive discussions with Forbes. “We have paid for two options for his water intake, the first was designed by an engineer and the second he selected and included a sediment filter.” Unfortunately since the project, the valley has experienced high water flows during irrigation times (in 2011 and 2012),” Long said. “This is difficult for river withdrawal systems as heavy sediment is carried in the river and causes problems for irrigators that use drip systems. It would be difficult for the Forbes farm to work their drip system at these high flows even without the river changes.”

Police briefs Oliver woman drowns

A 32-year-old Oliver woman drowned during a boating accident on Gallagher Lake Monday night. The RCMP were notified by the BC Coroner service of a sudden death on the lake, approximately five kilometres north of Oliver. The deceased was believed to have drowned after falling out of a paddle boat sometime between 6-6:20 pm. Witnesses attempted to perform CPR prior to transporting the victim to South Okanagan General Hospital, where she was pronounced dead. The RCMP report that the primary cause of death is believed to be drowning with alcohol and prescription drug consumption as potential aggravating factors. Police will assist the BC Corners Service with completing the investigation. The woman’s identity has not been released.

Cyclist dies after collision

Wetting it down - Oliver firefighters extinguished a grass fire on Okanagan Street where a resident was doing some outdoor burning last week. People are reminded to use extreme caution when burning this time of year.

A 37-year-old champion mountain biker from Penticton died after he was struck on Tuc-el-nuit Drive last week. At 4:03 pm on July 4, Oliver RCMP responded to a report of a motor vehicle collision involving a cyclist in the 37000 block of Tuc-el-nuit Drive. Witnesses at the scene stated that a newer model (unregistered and uninsured) Chevrolet Impala driven by a 37-year-old Oliver male was headed southbound. At some point the Impala struck the cyclist, who was thrown over the vehicle, landing in thick brush. The man was examined by paramedics and declared deceased at the scene. He was identified as Adam Larsson. A traffic re-constructionist was enlisted to assist with the investigation. Alcohol is not believed to be a factor at this time.

Transients need to earn respect

I

t’s unfortunate how the actions of a few tarnish the reputation of the whole lot. We’re talking about transient fruit pickers in Oliver. Most of these young people from Quebec are hard-working individuals looking for a little coin and adventure. They respect our community and leave it the way they find it. But some of them don’t. That was evident when firefighters had to extinguish a large, unattended campfire in the hills above Leighton Crescent recently. Firefighters had to attend on foot with portable water tanks. Media relations officer Spencer Tribbick said there were quite a few tents around, but nobody was there watching the fire. With a strong wind, the fire could have threatened Tumbleweeds Mobile Home Park, he noted. The Town received complaints about these campers, but it was determined they were located on Crown land and outside municipal boundaries. As a result, the Town’s bylaws have no effect in that area. The complaints were then referred back to the RCMP. A local farmer informed the Chronicle that transients had been camping down by the Okanagan River channel, where he found parts of his pumphouse burned. He’s now worried that a major fire might break out this summer. Loose Bay campground on Secrest Road was established years ago for transient workers, but many choose to camp closer to town near the river. We don’t blame them for not wanting to walk to Loose Bay every night because it’s a long way. Too bad there isn’t a shuttle to take them there or a Townsanctioned campground nearby. The point is we expect visitors to show respect and not subject the community to fire hazards and illegal dumping. More enforcement is needed to deter seasonal campers along the river channel where garbage and human waste are piling up. The RCMP and the Town say complaints will be acted upon as staff is available. But that’s part of the problem – very few staff are available. What we need is one or two thick-skinned individuals whose job is to specifically act on these complaints as soon as they are reported. No more blocking doorways on Main Street, no more make-shift campgrounds, no more unattended fires. No more. If seasonal workers want respect in Oliver, they have to earn it like everyone else.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR We should support Desert Sun and the vulnerable in Oliver I was dismayed to learn that funding for Desert Sun Counselling and Resource Centre may not be continued.   A number of years ago I worked as a social worker in their Stopping the Violence program. Some of the women who managed to escape spousal abuse remain in our community with  excellent jobs and children who are growing up to be contributing members of society. It could have been otherwise had they not had the support they needed at a time of crisis. This spring I had reason to call the centre for information. My own daughter and her small children were trapped in a dangerous and abusive domestic situation. The counsellor I spoke to was able to give me all the resource information including the Safe House and lawyer referral services in Alberta. I conveyed them secretly to my daughter who was able to contact police, counsellors and lawyer. A careful exit plan was executed and she and the children were able to escape without serious harm. If it wasn’t for that information and help, my own child

Plant your own damn flowers and stop stealing my mother’s This letter is to bring attention to the person or persons involved in stealing my mother’s flower baskets right off her front step. Our mother is a senior and lives behind 7-Eleven in a small apartment; she cannot afford to live in a house because of a fixed income. She has no yard, just a cement step. Every year she plants flowers in two long boxes. This year she planted purple and white petunias and marigolds in two long boxes, one white box and the other a reddish brown box.  They were just looking beautiful.  As I went to visit her this morning I noticed her flowers were gone . . . someone stole them right off her step!  My mom was so upset; this is the second time this has happened. Since living there, she has had to deal with fires being

could have ended up another of the sad statistics where everyone says after mother and children are dead or damaged, “All the signs were there.”    It takes huge courage to leave when you are so afraid and it takes a resource like Desert Sun to provide the support and information needed to do it. Women are blamed again and again, “Why didn't you leave?” It may have been for lack of the very support we have in our community but is threatened by reduced or eliminated funding. I want some of my tax dollars spent on helping the most vulnerable in our society. Our counsellors need to be free to do their job and not spend their time out begging and soliciting funds to cover a working salary. As citizens of Oliver, we need to support them. They are doing a fine job and I, personally,  am hugely grateful.

started, someone even tried to start a fire in her garbage can leaning against her building - thank God there was no paper in it to actually catch fire. Also, there is vulgar grafitti she has to see out her window every day, and now she has to worry about thieves lurking outside her door.  This infuriates me and upsets my mom very much, that some ignorant, selfish being has the nerve to steal her flowers. Shame on you if you are reading this, you should be ashamed of yourself. Plant your own damn flowers!  If anyone knows of this, please call me at 250-498-0542.

NEWS

Article was one-sided It has been reported by Lyonel Doherty in the Oliver Chronicle (Issue 2) that George Hanson is suspicious that the individuals responsible for defacing his pro-park sign may be “no park” supporters. Hanson is insinuating that the honourable members of the LRMP, the Grasslands Coalition, the Cattlemen’s Association, the Keremeos Gun Club, local ranchers and hundreds of private citizens of the Similkameen and Okanagan Valleys – all respectable organizations and individuals that do not support the development of a national park, would waste their valuable time and energy to deface a pro-park sign. Hanson says that he has not seen any vandalism to the “no park” signs. Of the dozens of “no park” signs, there have been at least five signs in the Similkameen Valley that have been defaced. I know this for a fact, as I was personally involved in repainting them. Two other signs have been stolen, and another in Oliver, making eight in total vandalized. The “no park” signs are quietly maintained and most certainly have not been left hanging upside down to blow in the wind. Welcome, Mr. Hanson, to a consequence of exercising a democratic right.

I am insulted by the blatant insinuation that those of us who do not support the national park also do not support and respect the concept of free speech, democratic rights, and acceptance of differing opinions. All democratic rights come with a caveat of responsibilities. When the democratic right to freedom of speech is targeting any individuals or groups of individuals, that speech should be supported by facts, not unfounded assumptions and hearsay and should be delivered in such a manner that attend to those responsibilities or not at all. The “no park” supporters have been accused of aggressive behaviour, disrespectful of different opinions and behaving in an intimidating fashion. One might compare the Doherty article to the reporting found in a gossip column – one-sided, disrespectful, and topped with a dollop of mudslinging. Perhaps a quick, well placed, phone call for clarification before publishing would have been prudent in the spirit of balanced reporting.

The BC Fruit Growers’ Association, in partnership with the Québec Apple Producers’ Association, released the results of a national survey on genetically engineered food products. The survey was commissioned after a BC biotech company (Okanagan Specialty Fruits) applied to have the Arctic apple approved for release. The Arctic apple was genetically engineered to modify the gene which controls apple browning. When cut, the apple does not brown, mainly resulting in cosmetic benefit and enhancing the efficiency of fresh cut apple processors. BC tree fruit growers are concerned about what effect the Arctic apple might have on apple markets in the event that there is a consumer backlash against the apple. The poll asked six questions about genetically engineered food. In response to the question, “Are you in favour of the approval of this (genetically engineered) apple by Health Canada?” a total of 69 per cent of respondents said no. Of the 1,501 respondents in the national survey, 76 per cent said that the Canadian government has not provided adequate information about genetically modified food. A further nine per cent said they had not heard of genetically modified food prior to the survey. The survey asked some of the same questions as a Consumers Association of Canada (CAC) survey from October 2003. The CAC survey, conducted by Decima, found that 88 per cent of respondents agreed that “a genetically modified food label be made mandatory by the Canadian government,” rather than the current voluntary labelling of genetically modified food. In the present survey, 91 per cent of respondents agreed with that mandatory labelling of genetically modified food should be required by the Canadian government. If the food were clearly labelled as being genetically modified, 14 per cent of respondents would purchase the food without hesitating, 45 per cent said it would depend on the type of food being purchased, and 35 per cent said that nothing could con-

vince them to purchase genetically modified food. Finally, 71 per cent of the survey respondents indicated that they are in favour of having a special category of food (milk, apples, pablum, fruits and vegetables) that should not be genetically engineered or be free of genetically engineered ingredients. The poll was conducted between June 26 and June 29, 2012 by Leger Marketing. The LegerWeb panel was polled, with 1,501 responses, designed so that the proportion of respondents, when grouped by region, gender, age and language, are representative of the Canadian population. Joel Brooks, marketing communications specialist for Okanagan Specialty Fruits, said the company is owned and led by fruit grower Neal Carter. “Neal’s goal with Arctic apples is to get more people eating more apples by making them even more convenient - while at the same time offering more product options to his fellow growers who’ve seen their economic viability plummet over the last couple decades.” Brooks said the science behind Arctic apples is relatively simple; it’s the use of nonbrowning apple genes to silence apple’s browning genes. He noted that Arctic apple trees behave in the orchard - they grow, respond to pests, flower, fruit and harvest - just as conventional trees do. He said they are planning to voluntarily label Arctic apples for public “transparency” purposes. Visit the website (www.articapples.com/ faq) regarding potential concerns that have been raised, particularly in regard to crosspollination. “Arctic apples can get more people eating more apples, a goal we can all agree on. We are caring, passionate people who are being very conscientious in our work,” Brooks said. He noted they are working hard to demystify Arctic apples and the relatively simple science behind them. The BCFGA represents 575 commercial tree fruit growers in BC and the Fédération des Producteurs de Pommes du Québec represents 555 commercial tree fruit farms in Québec.

Kim Dragseth was once too scared to talk about autism since her son was diagnosed with it. But now she’s very proud because she understands the disorder and has the tools to deal with it. The mother of two is excited about opening a behavioural centre in Osoyoos for families living with autism. Autistic spectrum disorder (ASD) and pervasive developmental disorder (PDD) are used interchangeably to refer to a variety of associated cognitive disorders that include: impairments in social interactions, impairments in verbal and non verbal communication, and repetitive and restrictive patterns of play. Her son Jude’s signs of autism were major tantrums that lasted for eight hours at times, obsessions over strange objects like fireplaces, no social play, no speech and not knowing how to play with his toys instinctively. “The shock of diagnosis is hard to deal with enough, then the grieving process, then the ‘let's fix this’ attitude,” Kim said. The idea for the centre came about when her threeyear-old son was diagnosed. The closest therapy centre was located in Penticton, so she thought about opening her own facility. “I want to help other families with this in any way I can.” She is planning a grand opening on July 21 at 6609-89th Street, downstairs in the Osoyoos Child Care Centre. Kim initially decided to run a program for her son at home. She found that her youngest child took on a lot of her older son’s tendencies. “I had so many contacts and so many people asking me about our program I thought there must be a need.” She noted that other families with ASD kids lived in Osoyoos but moved away to get better services. But she refused to move despite there being no other support groups in the area. She settled into the old preschool space at the Osoyoos

Child Care Centre and started working from there. “This centre is very important to families living in this area . . . it allows us an opportunity to train and learn here, in our hometowns at a reasonable cost.” Kim said people are being diagnosed with autism at a high rate every day. Behaviour consultant Henrietta Penney said there is some evidence that specific behaviour can distinguish infants from other children as early as 12 months of age, but usually they are over two before they are assessed. She stated that early identification and intervention are critical for improving the developmental status of children with autism. Penney noted the goal of providing intensive behaviour intervention is to increase the slope of the child’s developmental trajectory to be more similar to that of typically developing children. No definitive cause for autism has been reported; it occurs in all populations and countries. Kim said the centre is a place where families can have the opportunity to receive training if needed to run their intervention programs closer to home. This is a play-based, applied behaviour analysis intervention/floor time setting for children and families dealing with ASD and related disorders. Kim also plans to run social groups after school for older children if there is a demonstrated need. “Autism is difficult enough to learn about. It’s not only your immediate family, it’s the grandparents, the aunts, the uncles and cousins that all play a role in how your child develops.” She pointed out the community plays a major role in how these children are accepted. Kim said she could not have done any of this without Penney and the support of behaviour interventionists Thasha Maynard, Adrienne Mailey, and Renee Marcotte.

Town mulls ‘green’ cars An inquiry by an Oliver resident has the Town looking into the operation of low-speed electric vehicles on municipal streets. These cars are defined as neighbourhood zero emission vehicles (NZEVs) that can attain a speed of 40 km/h. To allow these vehicles to operate in Oliver, the Town would have to amend its existing traffic bylaw. Tuc-el-nuit Drive and Fairview Road are two areas that could accommodate these vehicles. But Municipal Manager Tom Szalay said the cars could be controversial in terms of safety risks. He said there are no legal passing opportunities anywhere in town, which could lead to driver frustration and hazard-

ous manoeuvres if you’re stuck behind one of these cars. Councillor Dave Mattes said these vehicles are widely used in Phoenix with no problems. “They are no more frustrating than following a scooter or an e-bike. They do move along better than you think.” Councillor Jack Bennest said if these electric cars slow down traffic he would appreciate them in Oliver. He pointed to tailgating motorists and those who speed around town. It’s not just kids, it’s seniors.” In the end, council deferred consideration of allowing NZEVs on municipal streets until after it considers priority projects for 2013.

Notice of Disposition of Land Pursuant to Section 26 of the Community Charter, and in accordance with Section 94 of the Community Charter, notice is hereby given that the Town of Oliver intends to dispose of an area of Land owned by the municipality. This disposition is for the purpose of highway widening by the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure, approximately 8 km north of Oliver. The Land to be disposed of comprises approximately 0.28 hectares located at the southeasterly end of Parcel B (Plan A324) of District Lot 648S, Similkameen Division Yale District (PID 011-952-296), as shown in the sketch plan below:

The proposed disposition is fee simple dedication as “highway” pursuant to Section 107 of the Land Title Act.

Businessman questions rules Lyonel Doherty Oliver Chronicle An Oliver businessman who ran afoul of the Town’s licensing rules is working out the kinks with council. Last week Ron Ethier addressed several business licence infractions at 5720 Main Street, the site of his ice cream shop at the former “Fritzville” fruit stand location. Building inspector Wayde Bliss said Ethier made an application to operate a mobile barbecue and received permission from the property owner. He also received a permit from Interior Health and a business licence from the Town of Oliver. Bliss said complaints were received almost immediately about the types of businesses being operated from the property. A subsequent inspection revealed the following: A doughnut-making mobile was being used without proper health documentation or licensing; the fruit stand was primarily a restaurant (in contravention of Agriculture Land Commission and Town bylaws); multiple trailer units were parked on the property advertising a different business; a roof top sign was installed in contravention of the sign bylaw, an electrical business sign was fixed to the building (which is not permitted); and the building did not have potable water or a known sewer system. Bliss reported that food sales in this agricultural zone are not permitted as an outright use, only as an auxiliary use. He noted that Agricultural Land Reserve rules state that a fruit stand must dedicate at least 50 per cent of its floor space to selling local produce. Bliss stated that some cooking operations have taken place in the building, but that is no longer the case. The roof top sign has been removed, along with the other electrical business sign. In addition, a large truck has been removed, but a trailer remains. Under the sign bylaw, these parked vehicles classify as billboard signs and are prohibited. Bliss said potable water is now connected to the premises. Ethier said some of the Town’s business regulations are a bit onerous. “I’m just trying to get a business licence . . . aren’t we living in a free country?” Ethier said the sign bylaw is a little strict, which makes it hard to do business. He did confirm that he has more than 50 per cent of his floor space allocated for food sales. “I believe that the licensing department is unrealistic regarding this request because Okanagan fruit stands should sell ‘local’ product, not foreign product as you will find in other fruit stands.” Ethier said the sign on the roof was erected to welcome tourists to Oliver. As for parking, “we feel we have the right to park vehicles on the premises that we own,” said Ethier, who doesn’t own that property. He noted there are other businesses that lease property and park their vehicles overnight and throughout the day. “You don’t need to look far to see sign violations in Town limits.” Municipal Manager Tom Szalay said the sign bylaw prohibits the placing of any advertising sign on a property that isn’t related to the business. For example, Ethier had to remove his I-Tech Electrical Services sign from the Fritzville location. Council agreed to issue Ethier a business licence as long as all outstanding issues (such as the sewer connection) are addressed.

Green Acres home park to expand Oliver council is paving the way for a developer to expand Green Acres mobile home park to provide more affordable housing for seniors. A recent public hearing saw a Langley developer outline the plan at 6613 Park Drive. The applicant is asking the Town to rezone a currently vacant lot (at the southwest corner of the park) from multi-family dwelling to manufactured home park. The developer informed council that he paid $325,000 for this small lot, which will accommodate five new pads to complement Green Acres and “improve the appearance of the neighbourhood.” Municipal Manager Tom Szalay said a road dedication (2.44 metres wide) is required to complete widening of Park Drive. The development permit will detail requirements for unit placement, utility servicing, vehicular access, landscaping, visual screening and parking. Szalay said the proposed five additional units will comCUSTOMER APPRECIATION DAY

ply with the maximum density set out in the zoning bylaw. The total unit count for the home park is 38, including 30 existing pads, three existing houses and the five new pads. The maximum unit count is 53. Szalay said the developer is seeking permission to access one of the new pads from a single driveway directly onto Park Drive. Normally, mobile home parks are developed with one or two access points in total. But at Green Acres, there are already four driveways onto Park Drive, with additional driveways onto Tuc-el-nuit Drive, Szalay said. He noted it would be desirable to avoid additional driveways, particularly so close to Tuc-el-Nuit Elementary School. The developer had previous discussions with municipal planning staff about the aesthetics of an individual mobile home fronting directly onto Park Drive. A suggested mitigation was to extend the park’s perimeter fencing and buffering along the full length of this home pad in question.

Town to continue Canada goose hunt program Lyonel Doherty Oliver Chronicle Killing geese appears to be the best method of controlling their population in Oliver, according to Town council. It recently approved the continuation of the annual goose hunt program through the issuance of six hunting permits. “These are licenced hunters who are very professional in what they’re doing,” said Mayor Ron Hovanes. The Town gives exemptions to six hunters to discharge firearms within municipal boundaries solely for the purpose of hunting Canada geese. During the spring 2010 season, hunters bagged 21 geese. Last fall/ winter and this spring, hunters bagged a total of 81 geese. Some of the birds were hunted on private property north of Tucel-nuit Lake with permission from the owners. Oliver Public Works clerk Patti Hannas indicated the new bag limit is 10 geese per day (up from five), which suggests the government is aware of the overpopulation in the Okanagan Valley. Hannas said hunters are responsible for showing proof of liability insurance in the amount of $2 million, and the Town provides the names of the licenced hunters to the local RCMP. She noted there have only been about three complaints from the public regarding this program. However, a number of people have complained in the past about the large goose population and the feces that affect water quality and health. Hannas said any progress made in the

last two years regarding goose control will be negated without the continuation of issuing hunting permits. “It is one of the most cost-effective ways to keep the Canada goose population down in our local area.” Councillor Jack Bennest said he’s “not a killer,” but he favours the hunting program over the Okanagan Valley Goose Management Program, which uses egg addling as a method of control. Bennest said the hunting program seems to be working in Oliver, prompting the geese to say, “Let’s go back to Vaseux Lake.” But Municipal Manager Tom Szalay said he sees the benefits of funding the egg addling program, noting the $2,500 fee to belong to the valley-wide program is a small price to pay. Hannas said goose management has been dealt with in different ways in the past via scare guns, dog control, predator control (birds of prey), addling and habitat modification. The Town of Oliver did receive an egg addling permit in 2007, but no records could be found indicating how many eggs, if any, were addled. In 2009, concerns were raised about goose feces at Tuc-el-nuit Lake and water quality warnings at area beaches. Safety concerns were also raised at the Oliver airport, where geese congregated. As a result, council passed resolutions prohibiting the feeding of geese, funding the goose management program, and authorizing hunting permits. No fee is charged for the permits, and no compensation is given for any expenses.

COMMUNITY NEWS

Park feasibility highlights concerns, positives (This is part five of a series on the national park feasibility study released by the federal government.) Feedback has generally been positive, however, there continues to be some local opposition, primarily from sportsman groups and motorized recreation users. As the feasibility assessment concludes, there is a growing need to reconnect formally with the public and stakeholders, report on the findings of the feasibility assessment, indicate where changes and modifications have been made to the park concept, and respond to concerns and opportunities identified. Over 1800 people attended the open houses, and hundreds more filled in comment forms and/or emailed the project manager. The following is a summary of concerns and opportunities, which were incorporated into the shaping of the first draft park concept, and later, the modified 2010 park concept. In 2007, Parks Canada commissioned a survey of local residents in order to better understand how residents would use a national park reserve, how a national park reserve might affect desire to live in the area, and to obtain an indication of public support for national park reserve establishment. Results of this survey indicated that overall, supporters outnumber opposition by approximately two to one. Two other local surveys were completed by non government organizations in 2008 and 2010. Key results for the surveys found that: a) There was continuing support for additional conservation efforts, and b) Six-

ty-three per cent of respondents favoured protecting a portion of the South Okanagan Similkameen in a national park, and 26 per cent opposed protection in a national park. Priority discussions have included First Nations as well as specific individuals, groups, organizations, community leaders and business interests. Parks Canada has renewed relationships with as many of the key stakeholders as possible. Stakeholder meetings have focused on listening to concerns and providing updates about recent changes to the proposed park concept, the new approach to grazing and the desire for renewed discussions with First Nations. Anecdotally, revisions to the park concept have been well received and those involved in consultation generally express improved comfort with revised mitigation strategies and the reduced scope of impacts. Concerns: - Loss of recreation use opportunities (hunting, fishing, motorized recreation, horseback riding, hang gliding, etc.) -Loss of a rural lifestyle - Loss of commercial land use opportunities, economic opportunities (grazing and agriculture), and forestry opportunities (fire wood cutting) - Increased government involvement - Costs to local residents (fees) Holistic natural resource management (fire, wildlife) - Desire to maintain current approach to land ownership, management, stewardship and use -Need to mitigate impacts, adequate transition period, fair compensation

-Suggestions to reduce the draft park concept area (remove South Okanagan Grasslands Protected Area, or Snowy Protected Area) Opportunities: - Ecosystem conservation and protection of unique flora and fauna -Sustainable tourism and recreation -Natural history and cultural interpretation, education, visitor centres -Enhanced conservation in surrounding areas -Enhanced enforcement, infrastructure and services -Economic benefits and job opportunities -Recreation and visitor opportunities -Research opportunities -Protection from development A long-term transition program, likely over several decades, will be necessary to achieve desired land assembly and full protection under the Canada National Parks Act. This approach would likely include a combination of federal and provincial legislation and policies. It will also require a strong commitment between Parks Canada, the government of British Columbia, and the Okanagan Nation Alliance to ensure success over the longer term. The benefit of this approach is that it will allow for respectful adjustments to hunting, grazing and other activities in the region, over the long term, as the establishment of a national park reserve is implemented. The components of transition include developing a collaborative working relationship with the Okanagan Nation Alliance in establishment, planning and man-

agement of the future protected area. Agreements: Develop an agreement between the governments of Canada and British Columbia to confirm completion of the feasibility assessment, and subsequently, a federalprovincial land transfer agreement. This agreement outlines the terms and conditions agreed to by the federal and provincial governments under which the national park reserve will be assembled and established, as well as outlining the process of land transfer. Craft and implement a legislative framework for interim management of lands within the park boundary; this framework would likely include a combination of federal and provincial legislation and policies. Planning and implementation: Develop and implement a land assembly strategy that includes strategic acquisition of private lands within the boundary (willing seller, willing buyer). At least some acquisitions will need to occur early in the transition process before opportunities are lost and to facilitate changes to grazing management. Collaborate with ranchers, range professionals and scientists to develop an adaptive management framework and a vegetation management plan that includes a combination of ungrazed benchmarks and areas with continued livestock grazing. Engage communities to jointly celebrate Parks Canada’s 100th anniversary and British Columbia’s 100th anniversary for the provincial park system, while celebrating the shared commitment to a new national park reserve.

Sunshine festival offers variety of activities

The International Sunshine Festival will feature many activities for children, including a crafts corner where they can exercise their imaginations. Lyonel Doherty photo

The “World Comes Together in Oliver” on Friday July 13 and Saturday July 14 at Oliver Community Park. The second annual Oliver International Sunshine Festival is back as an exciting two-day event with free admission presented by the Oliver Parks and Recreation Society. Get set for a fantastic lineup of entertainers and the addition of West Coast Amusements, who will be setting up the midway in the park from Friday through Sunday. The festival will kick off with an official welcome and special dedication ceremony for the new bandshell, as well as the announcement of the winner of the Oliver Ambassador Duck Race at 5:30 pm. This will be followed by a full evening of live musical entertainment including performances from local world beat band Lobo Blanco and Vancouver-based classic rock band Worms Hate Rain. There will be a beverage garden for adults 19 years and over on Friday night from 5-10 pm. “Last year we had many individuals and families tell us that they could not attend because they were working on Saturday,” said festival coordinator Carol Sheridan. “So this year we have added Friday evening as another chance to bring people down to a beautiful park to enjoy music, children’s activities, some dinner and a fun festival atmosphere on an Okanagan summer night.” Saturday morning the annual parade will take place along Highway 97 starting at 10:30 am. “The parade is shaping up to be a colourful display of local celebrities, service organizations and clubs, entertaining floats and several different types of vehicles,” said parade coordinator Tracy Veintimilla. “We have received approximately 30 parade entries and expect to be closer to 40 by the big day.” The Oliver Rotary Club and local Crime Watch organization have once again taken

a lead role in ensuring a successful and safe parade. Oliver residents and visitors are reminded that there will be no vehicle parking along Main Street between Similkameen Avenue (346th) and Kootenay Street (99th) between the hours of 7 am and 12 pm, and no vehicle passage between 1011:30 am during the road closure to allow safe passage of parade entries and lots of room for spectating. Immediately following the parade, live international entertainment will kick off on the main stage with an incredible lineup of local and visiting performers including students from the dance studio, a special solo performance from lovely “Lulu” and some high energy hip hop dancing from popular group “JEDI.” Headline stage acts on Saturday include an interactive performance that you do not want to miss from Bobby Bovenzi and Nankama West African drumming group that will have the whole audience moving, as well as a fun participation-encouraged performance from children’s entertainer Mat Duffus. Clothing and dance moves from different parts of the world will be displayed during the International Fashion Show. In addition to the main stage entertainment, there will be lots to see and do in the park on both days. Children will enjoy field activities like the Par-T-Perfect climbing wall and inflatables, trying out tug-o-war and Olympicstyle challenges with Sun Fun leaders and making creations in the craftworks tent. Different organizations will be on site showing and selling their wares, and people can enjoy eating out in the world food fair area featuring delicious options to tempt the tummy. Families can also beat the heat by taking a swim in the Oliver pool on Friday night between 6:30-8:30 pm and regular public swimming will take place Saturday between 1-4 pm.

Antelope brush is disappearing No one can deny the natural beauty and attraction of the Okanagan; but were you aware that one third of BC’s ‘species at risk’ call the Okanagan home? There are many unique and interesting plants here, and one of the most endangered is the Antelope Brush. 68 per cent of this plants’ original habitat has been destroyed in this region. There are at least eight species known as ‘The Antelope Gang’ that are directly impacted by this particular shrubs’ demise. They are badgers, gopher snakes, rattlesnakes, Behr’s Hairstreak, burrowing owl, great basin spade-foot toad, tiger salamander and the pallid bat. So, before this precious plant becomes extinct, remember that the creatures dependent on it also call this their home. Remember, when the antelope brush is gone…so is the gang Barb Sabyan - NK’Mip Desert Cultural Centre, Osoyoos Sticky zippers: The will slide easily if rubbed with a lead pencil. Remove bumper stickers: Use nail polish remover or lighter fluid. Gently scrape away with a razor blade or knife. Parsley: keep fresh and crisp by storing in a widemouth jar with a tight lid. Parsley can be kept frozen too. Marshmallows: They will not dry out when stored in

the freezer. Simply cut with scissors when ready to use. Musty smells: For sweet smelling closets, hang an old nylon stocking filled with cedar chips in the closet. This also serves as an excellent moth repellant. To remove musty odours from a trunk, place a coffee can filled with kitty litter deodorizer inside the trunk overnight. From: Mary Ellen’s Best of helpful hints.

Kathleen Dorothy Keller September 14, 1926 - June 30, 2012

At the age of 85 years Kay went to join her beloved husband Bert who predeceased her by 10 years. Her memory will be forever lovingly cherished by her four children, David (Sandra), Christine (Tom), Margaret (Ian), Colin (Kelly); her six grandchildren, Lee, Dawne, Nigel (Melissa), Scott (Zoe), Kevin (Ashley), Sarah (Ollie); her two great-grandchildren, Joseph and Olivia; her sister, Pam; her brother, Arthur (Bridget); plus numerous other relatives and friends. Kay was born in Abergele, Wales, the eldest of four children of Samual and Florence Wale. In her teen years she was a member of the Women’s ATS and served in Germany during World War II. She immigrated to Canada in 1971 where she met and married Hilbert (Bert) Keller in 1975. They lived in Edmonton for a number of years before moving to Sooke, BC and finally settling in Oliver, BC. On the death of Bert, Kay returned to Edmonton to be close to family. A celebration of Kay’s life will be held at 11:00 AM on Friday, July 6th at Hainstock’s Funeral Home, 9810 – 34 Avenue in Edmonton. After the service please join us at 1:00 PM in the Community Room at Prima Villa Estates, 4743 – 25th Avenue for refreshments and to share memories and stories of Kay. Kay will be cremated and her ashes will be scattered in Oliver. In lieu of sending flowers please make a donation to The Salvation Army.

New Ambassador candidates shine Lori Martine Special to the Chronicle The Oliver Ambassador Program has been very busy over the past few months with our candidacy program kicking off, and our reigning ambassadors starting their busy travel schedule. Locally, the ambassadors and candidates have participated in the Rick Hansen event, Hike For Hospice, the legion’s Candlelight Tribute, the Canadian Tire Jumpstart event, the Bloomin’ Plant Sale, the Air Cadets annual, the Oliver Half-Iron, the Buy-Low first anniversary, and the Canada Day breakfast. The candidates presented their introductory/sponsor speeches at an informal event on Tuesday, June 12. The event was well attended and the judges were pleased with this first public speaking effort. During the next two months our candidates will be seen around town volun-

teering with their local sponsors in fundraising events and preparing for their August 23/24 pageant. Our ambassadors have also been promoting the Town of Oliver during their visits to Summerland, Trail, Osoyoos and Princeton. One of our reigning ambassadors, Nikki Brar, is leaving on a volunteer service trip to Nicaragua, and Carly Craik and Gagan Ganger will be bringing greetings to neighbouring communities such as Kelowna, Lytton, White Rock and Penticton at their special events. The ambassadors plan to travel to Merritt on August 17-18 to support their local BC Ambassador candidate Juliana Martine. You can help Julie in her goal by supporting her various fundraising activities (bottle drive, water sale and family barbecue). Also, vote for her at www.bcambassadors. com, People’s Choice Award ($500 bursary). Look for Julie’s table, the ambassador table, and the candidates working in the craft tent, and helping with balloons and face painting at the Oliver International Sunshine Festival.

Osoyoos Desert Society hosts a desert night outdoors On Saturday, July 28 the Osoyoos Desert Society will be hosting its annual “Romancing the Desert” fundraiser. Held each summer under a full moon, the event showcases the area’s unique desert habitat along with the gourmet delights of local restaurants and wineries. This year’s event features an international theme, with globally-inspired cuisine and a specially-themed guided tour along the Desert Centre’s 1.5 km boardwalk. While on tour, guests stop at stations along the way to sample local wines and tasty appetizers. Following the tour, guests will be invited to enjoy more savory selections and decadent desserts at the Main Plaza. Live music with an international beat, and a silent auction round out the magical moonlit evening. More than a dozen local restaurants and wineries will be on hand, donating their

products and time to provide guests with a one-of-a-kind experience. “The community support is incredible,” said Desert Society Executive Director Denise Eastlick. Romancing the Desert is the Desert Society’s major fundraiser and proceeds from the event support the society’s efforts to conserve at-risk habitats, including the South Okanagan’s antelope brush ecosystem. This unique desert environment ranks as one of the most endangered ecosystems in the country. The Osoyoos Desert Society was formed to help restore and conserve local habitats and, through education, inspire active concern for fragile and endangered ecosystems worldwide. Romancing the Desert takes place at the Osoyoos Desert Centre on July 28 from 6 pm to midnight.

Top coaches choose Oliver to teach kids NBN Lyonel Doherty Oliver Chronicle It’s not the NBA, but that doesn’t matter to some of the top coaches in North America who come to Oliver every summer to teach basketball. This year Spencer McKay’s Nothin’ But Net (NBN) camp attracted Gonzaga University coaches Ross Convertino and Tyler Seth (aka T-Nut). They joined former national team player Joey Vickery and professional Jeremy McCulloch who plays in Finland. Rounding out the coaching team is 23-year-old NBN alumni player Ryan Baptiste from Oliver. McKay, a former SOSS graduate who chased his own basketball dreams, coached at Gonzaga last year. “To be able to coach under Mark Few (one of the top five coaches in the US) was a real treat,” he said. McKay didn’t have to do much armtwisting to convince Convertino and Seth to coach NBN in Oliver. “They said yes immediately.” Convertino told the Chronicle that McKay informed him about NBN and Oliver’s great fruit and wine industry. Convertino said there’s a big passion for basketball in Oliver. He saw one NBN player practicing at home until 9 pm last week. “All these kids have a great attitude,” he said, noting he has been most impressed with the girls, who are holding their own with the boys. Convertino said what is great about NBN is they can introduce new drills to the youth who can practice them at home.

Baptiste graduated from SOSS in 2007 and has participated in the camp since Grade 9. “There is such high-calibre coaching here,” he said. He recalled being awestruck in having the chance to be coached by these guys. Now he’s one of them helping the kids. Baptiste is attending UBC Kelowna in his pursuit to be a high school math teacher. McKay said offering the camp in the new school gymnasium is great, especially the natural lighting and air-conditioning, which the old gym didn’t have. The camp is divided into two groups – rookie (Grade 4-7) and pro (Grade 8-12). The kids learn everything from dribbling to passing. Trent Murray from Oliver got a few tips from McKay on how to dribble behind his back, while Reagan St. Onge from Mara learned how to spin the ball from Convertino. McKay pointed to the self-confidence and skill improvement of St. Onge, who beamed with pride after learning a new skill. “Sports camps are so important, especially for small communities like Oliver,” McKay said. He also noted the importance of people coming forward to coach these kids. His father stepped forward to coach the Grade 8 boys this year because no one else volunteered. McKay would like to see more youth get involved in sports instead of burying their heads in laptops and iPhones. But that’s another story.
