OPINION AWARDING heroic efforts of two Kelowna men to stop a bank robber by Kelowna RCMP is sending out a mixed message.

Other than in the Hall Road area of SEKID, where they will pay $519 a year, residents will pay $399 annually, in order that funds can be set aside for future water quality improvements estimated at $18 million. Wells are the main source of water in the Hall Road area. Manager Toby Pike admitted it's a big cost increase for residential customers, but he said, "We've been warning people to get ready for this. We're working toward compliance with Interior Health requirements for improved water quality." A dedicated portion of this year's payments for water will go into a fund for capital projects such as those required to bring water quality up to the standard required by IH, he said. "We need to improve our water quality. The only point on which I disagree with IH is on the degree of urgency for those improvements," commented Pike. As well, the district plans to offer land for sale, including a 10-acre parcel of property it owns from a tax sale in the 1930s, which is expected to add $2 million or so to the improvement fund. He admitted he has heard from some customers about the rate increase, but he defended it, saying it's only a dollar a day. "What would you do without it? Water was too cheap to begin with. This is not an exorbitant cost." "There are lots of other things people pay more for that are not as vital as water," he commented. Normally, the rates are set by the board to cover operating costs and leave enough to put towards keeping the infrastructure in shape, but there is a huge cost to bringing the system into line with health regulations, he said. Although some water purveyors haven't yet approved rates for the coming year, some are based on a metered rate while others are flat rate.

On approved credit www.kelownacapnews.com Wednesday, January 20, 2010 capital news A3 NEWS Harper appoints Day to head up treasury board Alistair Waters ASSISTANT EDITOR SEAN CONNOR/CAPITAL NEWS CROC TALK owner Doug Illman holds a yacare caiman, while Sandy Connor gives the it back scratch during a close-up viewing on Saturday for visitors at the CrocTalk Learning Centre on Stewart Road East in Kelowna. KELOWNA Mayor to visit Croc Talk facility Doug Illman sent a invitation to city council to visit his Croc Talk facility last week, and the mayor was quick to accept. Mayor Sharon Shepherd and Coun. Charlie Hodge will visit the crocodilian education centre on Thursday, Jan. 28. Illman's cashstrapped facility--which houses abandoned crocodilians, African wildcats and tortoises--is hopeful the city will offer assistance to what Kelowna Tourism acknowledges is among the leading tourist attractions in town. Illman estimates he has invested up about $300,000 in the exotic animal sanctuary over the last eight years, but that investment is currently on shaky financial ground. He is behind on the rent for his facility and is now facing a potential eviction order. And the unpaid hydro bill for the indoor tropical environment is now at about $4,000. Since Illman's situation at Croc Talk was recently publicized by two supporters of his facility, he has received donations of food for the animals. And acclaimed artist Robert Bateman has donated a limited orca print to be auctioned off as a fundraiser. But city hall has so far been silent about Croc Talk's plight, something Illman hopes might start to change after the tour by the two council members next week. Illman's dream is for his facility to find a permanent location closer to Kelowna's city centre, where Croc Talk can serve as an education centre about reptiles. "I think we are running a good program here and we have had a lot of positive feedback about it," Illman said. "We just need a partnership with the city of some kind, where the program can keep operating and we can keep our heads above water." A first step in Illman's eyes would be to relocate Croc Talk on city-owned property and find a way to work out any rezoning issues that might create. As well, he acknowledges that corporate sponsorship support may also be necessary to keep Croc Talk afloat due to the cost to maintain the facility. Along with being an education centre, Croc Talk has also evolved into a facility that cares for crocodilians seized as illegal pets or used by postsecondary institutions for research that are no longer required for that purpose. "The problem is these animals have no where else to go. They can't be adopted out because it is illegal to have them as house pets in the first place," Illman said. If they have been raised in domestic circum stances, the chance for survival in the wild is slim. Stockwell Day is on the move again. The Conservative MP for Okanagan-Coquihalla has been Canada's international trade minister for the last 15 months. But he was shuffled out of that portfolio Monday in a surprise move and given the more powerful job of president of the federal treasury board by Prime Minister Stephen Harper. "I'm looking forward to the challenge. It will be very different (from my last portfolio)," Day told the Capital News on Tuesday. Day's new role will put him in charge of government spending at a time when the feds say they are reducing the stimulus spending it used to prop up the sagging Canadian economy during the last 12 months. "You will see the beginnings of a road may back to balanced budget.," Day predicted. Stockwell Day In naming Day to the treasury board presidency, Harper praised his former International trade minister. "As we look ahead to the end of our time limit in the stimulus programs, and for the need of deficit reduction once the economy has recovered, it will be essential for government to constrain the growth of spending," Harper said. "The president of the treasury board plays a critical role in overseeing government expenditures." For his part, Day said he does not think he will have to be a "Dr. No" when it comes to requests for federal funds. Despite the government's plan to reduce spending, he said he expects to say yes to programs that will get the economy back on its feet and instill confidence the Canadian economy, both from inside and outside the country. "I see it as saying yes to good ideas." As international trade minister, Day said he was proud of his record helping get more free trade agreements signed with countries other than the U.S. and Mexico and was glad to have seen how other countries dealt with their stimulus spending. As a result, he said, he is confident Canada can return to a balanced budgets within the government's projection of four years. Prior to his appointment as international trade minister in October 2008, Day was Canada's public safety minister. a firstname.lastname@example.org. Capozzi's guilty plea rejected Alistair Waters ASSISTANT EDITOR Crown counsel has rejected Cameron Capozzi's offer to plead guilty to manslaughter in the death of his mother, 77-year-old Josephine "Babs" Capozzi. Cameron Capozzi's lawyer Henry Sarava said Tuesday as a result of the rejection, it appears the case will now go to a preliminary hearing later this spring. "We argue (Cameron) did an unlawful act but he did not intend to kill her," said Sarava outside the Kelowna courthouse Tuesday morning. Minutes earlier, the case was ordered held over to Feb. 11, when prosecution and defence lawyers will meet again before a judge to set the date for the preliminary hearing. Cameron Capozzi, 50, is charged with second-degree murder in the death of his mother. Babs Capozzi's body was found in August in the home she shared with her son in the the 800-block of Young Road in Kelowna. Sarava has said his client was an alcoholic on a massive "bender" at the time of his mother's death. In October, he revealed Babs Capozzi died as a result of a torn artery. Cameron Capozzi was not in court yesterday. He is being held in custody. Asked how his client is coping with the situation, Sarava replied: "His mother is dead and he is accused of second-degree murder.

Hosted by the City of Kelowna with Vancouver's Space2Place design firm facilitating the discussion, the evening was described as a workshop and gave those who will be directly affected by the project a place to make requests and voice concerns. Top of mind for nearly everyone in the room were worries over how a major construction project, which will see the Bernard Avenue upgraded mid-summer, will affect business. "It would be nice if they listened to some of the people who have experience from around the world," said Wes Kamet, an activist for Kelowna South-Central Association of Neighbourhoods. "There are solutions to these problems out there." Construction on major thoroughfares can go very badly for business communities, as evidenced by the Cambie Street transit construction which sent that Vancouver business community to court in its fight to get compensation from government. But the projects can just as easily go the other way, City of Kelowna staff members said, noting they have done some research on the Banff Refresh project and found it served to spur interest in their downtown core. In a telephone inter- view Tuesday, Banff town manager Robert Earl confirmed their infrastructure upgrades actually served as a tool for their town to push their tourism industry further. "The decision we made was to invest in the project in a way to turn it from a construction project into more of an attraction," said Earl. Similar to Kelowna, Banff has only a narrow summer construction window to complete outdoor projects, though Earl said the businesses themselves adopted an attitude that turned the project from a nuisance to a window of opportunity. Rather than close their doors, they branded the construction itself as a chance to "refresh" their look asking people to come down and check it all out. The city hired buskers, which could be moved in front of specific businesses if construction was driving people away, and they brought in a liaison person to troubleshoot problems on a 24/7 basis. They constructed view corridors through the construction itself and added prizes, like pins people could collect by visiting different businesses. "I think one of the unforeseen outcomes for me was that our relationship with the business community was actually strengthened through this project," said Earl. For those struggling with the changes coming their way in Kelowna, the town's approach might be welcome news. Though the odd brainstorming session generated words like "bitterness" JENNIFER SMITH/CAPITAL NEWS BEAN SCENE Coffee House owner Deborah Synnot takes down concerns from a group of business owners with a stake in the Bernard Avenue revitalization project. and "unhappiness," for the most part Monday evening's starter session had an upbeat and positive feel. Suggestions ranged from adding trolleys into the downtown core to ferry people to Bernard Avenue from the parking towers, to adding antique lighting to highlight the corridor's heritage feel. City planner Pat McCormick said the project has been on the city's agenda for 10 years. Businesses which would see upgrades to the streetscape outside their business beyond the usual sidewalks, curbs and gutters expected with a city project, can expect to pay a levy. The amount has yet to be established and will be based on the designs the workshops shape. The evening was just the first of several sessions to take place this winter. firstname.lastname@example.org Mayors put Okanagan highway projects on province's radar Jason Luciw STAFF REPORTER Local mayors want three major highways projects tacked on to the B.C. Ministry of Transportation's to-do list, including a second crossing of Okanagan Lake. However, politicians clearly have a lot more lobbying to do before any work is done, based on the ministry's feedback.

The presentation was short on details about what future projects were in store for the Okanagan's highways, however, according to West Kelowna Mayor Doug Findlater, "They didn't really look forward to any great extent or lay out their cards on a pile of new projects." Since ministry staff was unwilling to talk about future improvements, Findlater said he figured he'd better chime in with West Kelowna's proposal for the oneway Highway 97 couplet through Westbank. "I felt I should seize an opportunity like this to at least speak up so it gets noticed," said Findlater. Council has talked informally about the possibility of turning the southbound one-way corridor, also known as Main Street, into a local twoway street. The northbound oneway stretch, also known as Dobbin Road, would then become a four-lane or six-lane, two-way sec- tion of Highway 97. Unfortunately ministry officials made no comments about the proposal, mentioned Findlater. "They didn't react, other than to note it." Another proposal that surfaced was a high elevation Highway 97 bypass around Peachland that would direct traffic from the Okanagan Connector to an area near Antler's Beach on the other side of town. Peachland Mayor Keith Fielding said the ministry seemed receptive to the plan. "The ministry confirmed that both a four (lane widening) through Peachland and the highland bypasses were options that they would be considering," said Fielding. The ministry would give no project timelines nor would officials indicate how high a priority it was; but, given the B.C. government's current fiscal restraints, Fielding said he was pleased the proposal was still on the province's radar. `` AT THE RATE THE CENTRAL OKANAGAN IS GROWING THEY NEED TO PUT THAT (SECOND CROSSING) ON THEIR 10- TO 20-YEAR HORIZON, EVEN IF IT'S JUST SOMETHING LIKE A TRANSIT BRIDGE. Doug Findlater Kelowna Mayor Sharon Shepherd also took the opportunity to bring up a second crossing of Okanagan Lake once more, even though the transportation ministry has been reluctant to entertain the idea since the Bennett Bridge was completed in May 2008. "The ministry was saying to us, we're not going to need a second crossing for way beyond 20 years," said Shepherd. "I didn't hear that when the (Bennett) bridge opened up. I heard that we'd be looking a lot sooner than 20 years if the projections are correct about where the growth is occurring." Shepherd wanted the ministry to at least entertain securing land for a route so the city could start aligning its streets and making acquisitions accordingly. However, the ministry's reluctance to buy up land wasn't surprising, she stated. "They've just invested a whole lot of money in Highway 97 and they're investing in Highway 33. So, I appreciate all that investment. But, I also like to think that we can plan further out." Findlater said he was disappointed with the ministry's response concerning another lake crossing. "At the rate the Central Okanagan is growing they need to put that (second crossing) on their 10- to 20-year horizon, even if it's just something like a transit bridge. We're going to be back to the same congestion on (Bennett) bridge again in 15 to 20 years." Shepherd said she hoped the ministry at least got the message that Okanagan municipalities want to get together to look at a variety of transportation options. "If the ministry truly believes that we should be looking at alternatives to bypasses (and) to adding alternate highways to many of our communities then maybe we have to start to consider a rapid light rail plan."

Certificates of appreciation were presented Monday by the RCMP to Barry Heidebrecht and Gary Traub for restraining a suspect who was attempting to rob the Interior Savings and Credit Union on Nov. 16, 2009. Heidebrecht, a 43year-old Kelowna resident, and Taub were standing in line at the Rutland branch of Interior Savings Credit Union when they noticed a man demanding money from one of the tellers. A scuffle broke out when the robber grabbed a woman's purse. That's when Heidebrecht stepped in. The robber threatened verbally to shoot him, however a gun was never found. Traub helped Heidebrecht pin the suspect to the ground until police arrived. "Kelowna RCMP are grateful for your efforts and assistance, which is a testament to your character that is valued by your community," said Insp.

WWW.QUALITYGREENS.COM A6 capital news Wednesday, January 20, 2010 www.kelownacapnews.com NEWS Birds use even dead trees By Judie Steeves STAFF REPORTER Trees that are carbon effigies of their former selves have still not ended their useful life as far as birds are concerned. When wildfire roared through Okanagan Mountain Provincial Park in 2003, leaving acres and acres of black spires where a mature evergreen forest had stood, most people were devastated by the new look. However, biologist Les Gyug, who is also a director of the Central Okanagan Naturalists' Club, had been visiting the park annually for years, and continued to monitor bird populations after the fire. And, he's found there are more winners than losers in the `new look' provincial park. Although the park was closed for the first two years after the fire, requiring suspension of the annual CONC critter count in the park, when it did begin again, bird watchers found there were at least as many birds as be- fore and lots of new ones as well. "The public perception was that the park was devastated and dangerous, but the birds handled it well," commented Gyug. In addition, he said the difference was like night and day for ungulates. Today there are lots of deer, moose and double the previous number of elk in the area. Loss of the mature trees permitted a return of shrubs like ceanothus, which is dependent on forest fires to trigger germination of its seeds, and which is a favoured browse of deer. For instance, he says a survey in 1999 of deer in the park resulted in two mule deer being counted. Last January, 52 were counted. As far as birds were concerned, he said today there's a more diverse, broad community of birdlife in the park than there was before the fire. There's only one bird, the brown creeper, that has not been spotted during the count since the fire. On the other hand, the numbers of birds like the house wrens, which like open shrubby habitat and nest in cavities, have more than doubled, with 29 counted during a daylong count before the fire and 63 afterwards, reports Gyug. Black-backed woodpeckers showed up after the fire, because their feed appeared, but even forest species such as the Townsend warblers and red-breasted nuthatches, didn't disappear. Gyug admits he was surprised to see that numbers of the insectivorous yellow-rumped warbler, which he had thought was a forest bird, really didn't change much as a result of the fire. In fact, he said they do fine after a fire because there are lots of standing trees remaining; lots of structure. On the other hand, they do not survive clearcuts. However, the numbers of ruffed grouse are way down after the fire. There's a lot of rock in the park, so there aren't a lot of grassland birds, explained Gyug. SEAN CONNOR/CAPITAL NEWS LES GYUG, a biologist and director of the Central Okanagan Naturalists' Club, makes regular birdwatching visits to Okanagan Mountain Provincial Park. The canyon wrens, a bird that is considered vulnerable in B.C., and whitethroated swifts, which are also blue-listed, both require such rugged, rocky habitat for nesting and foraging. However, Gyug reports that of the 10 or 11 species which increased in numbers the most following the fire, at least five are shrub species. "The dense Douglas fir forest is not appropriate there. In the long-term, there will have to be ecosystem restoration," he commented. The CONC began conducting critter counts in the park in 1994, and members are joined by members of the South Okanagan Naturalists for it each year. email@example.com Floor Model & Damage Box Sale All Janome - Babylock - Elna Sewing, Quilting Embroidery Machines & Sergers on Westside citizen of year nominees Jason Luciw STAFF REPORTER Sale NOW!

The Westbank and District Chamber of Commerce says four men and two women have been singled out for the honour for the annual Key Business Awards, however, only five names can go forward. Nominees are West Kelowna fire chief Wayne Schnitzler, Westside-Kelowna MLA Ben Stewart, West Kelowna Coun. David Knowles, Westside food bank manager Faith Lanthier, past Westbank chamber president Broc Braconnier and former Westbank Museum volunteer manager Margaret Jackson. Schnitzler made news last year for his leadership during the Rose Valley Reservoir, Glenrosa/ Goat's Peak and Terrace Mountain forest fires. Stewart became the new Westside-Kelowna MLA during last year's provincial election, replacing retiring Okanagan-Westside MLA Rick Thorpe. Stewart was also once a proprietor of Quails Gate winery. David Knowles has been a West Kelowna councillor going on three years. For five years prior to that he was a Westside director of the Cen- tral Okanagan Regional District government. He is also an active member of the Westbank Rotary Club. Food bank manager Faith Lanthier led her team through a year of ongoing transitions, as the organization went from a temporary facility in a trailer behind Emmanuel Assembly church to a new permanent location on Churchill Road. Under Lanthier's leadership, the organization also weathered the 2009 economic storm, handing out more hampers throughout the year than at any time in its 25-year history. Chamber president Broc Braconnier has been a business leader in the community for many years. Margaret Jackson saved the Westbank Museum, convincing the District of West Kelowna to invest in a permanent home on Pamela Road for the facility and to provide a grant in aid of more than $34,000 to hire a qualified, professional manager to keep the facility running as the organization's volunteer base dwindled. The five semi-finalists will be announced Feb. 5 during a wine and cheese reception at Lakeview Heights Community Hall. The winner will be announced at the Key Business Awards Gala on March 6 at Our Lady of Lourdes parish hall. firstname.lastname@example.org www.kelownacapnews.com Wednesday, January 20, 2010 capital news A7 Our Mission Statement To make shopping anywhere else unacceptable for customers who value one-on-one personal service, cleanliness and quality products.

District of Lake Country homeowners pay about $455 a year if they are not metered, or $395, plus a metered rate. In the Glenmore Ellison Improvement District, they pay about $400 for both taxes and tolls, an increase of two to three per cent over last year. In the Westbank Irrigation District, homeowners will go to a metered rate this year. Right now the toll and tax combined work out to charges of $430 a year for a single family home. In the Black Mountain Irrigation District, the charge is $372 annually, while in Peachland, residents pay either $283.24 and $319.75, depending on which of the two water systems they're in, Trepanier or Peachland (Deep) Creek. In the Lakeview Irrigation District, homeowners pay a total of $277 a year. Rutland Waterworks, which relies on a system of wells rather than on surface water, charges $267 a year. Kelowna residents, who pay based on metered rates that are on a sliding scale to encourage water conservation, pay a low of $202 annually--up to $240.96 with use of 50 cubic metres a month and $622.68 with use of more than 125 cubic metres a month. In West Kelowna, the new municipality has just taken over operation of three water systems from the regional district, but will take over the Lakeview and Westbank Irrigation Districts in the coming year. Of the three it currently manages, residents in the West Kelowna Estates area pay $298.04; Pritchard residents pay $220.76 and Sunnyside residents pay a combination of metered and flat rates that works out to about $280 a year. email@example.com PYMAN ROAD CORD board ready to oppose gravel pit Jason Luciw STAFF REPORTER On the heels of a town hall meeting into the proposed Pyman Road gravel pit in Joe Rich last week, the Central Okanagan Regional District added its name this week to the list of those opposed to the quarry. However, the move may be moot. At its meeting Monday night, the regional district board noted the B.C. Ministry of Mines could approve the pit within the next couple of months now that applicant CRC Developments has fulfilled its final requirement to hold a public meeting on the matter. Still, the regional board said it would attempt to get its last minute concerns in under the wire, hoping the B.C. Ministry of Mines would decide to hold off on awarding any gravel mining permit. The board has requested that the mines ministry defer any decision on the application until the work of the Central Okanagan Aggregate Committee could be completed in the next year to 18 months. The committee is undertaking a pilot project to determine where quarries should be permitted, restricted or allowed with conditions throughout the region. The board also felt that the Central Okanagan Board of Education's concerns about the safety of school children at nearby Black Mountain Elementary should be addressed before any permit was awarded. The board of education proposed that gravel truck traffic be restricted on Highway 33 between 7:30 and 9 a.m. and 2:30 and 4 p.m. on weekdays to account for peak times when children walk alongside the highway to get to and from school. Kelowna Mayor Sharon Shepherd and West Kelowna Mayor Doug Findlater also felt that further improvements to Highway 33 would be needed including a westbound acceleration lane for slow moving gravel trucks turning onto the highway from Pyman Road. "The major concern that I have, and it may come out in (an) impact assessment that's been suggested as a condition (of support) is the traffic up and down that road, you know larger pup trucks mixed with existing traffic. It's a bit of a zoo at certain times of the day," said Findlater. Current Highway 33 improvement plans call for an eastbound climbing lane to be added and for the applicant to improve the intersection of Highway 33 and Pyman Road. Chairman Robert Hobson also said the impact on the unique ecosystem should also be raised with the ministry. "We have a relatively intact grassland/ steep talus slope ecosystem. It is unique," said Hobson. "The 25 years of heavy industrial activity is my biggest concern." Bankhead students to be among busker performers Olympic from A1 mittee, could resist--although when he initially started talking to the celebration's organizers there was admittedly some skepticism. Landing a spot among the student brigade who will perform the song, on the other hand, was as easy as putting up one's hand. According to students Mikayla Farnsworth and Kristy Baillie, all it took to get behind the xylophone and onto the Olympic torch stage was the initiative to volunteer for the job. The kids won't actually be on the official stage, but rather be part of a wide range of talent busking outside City Park next Monday as residents all pour in to see the torch roll through town. As for the other buskers already on the bill--including acts like Rainbow the Clown, The Amazing Michael and Elmo Presley (Elvis's brother who can't sing)--one look at this last-minute addition to the lineup may leave them shaking in their boots. The Bankhead crew will be assembled in front of The Sails performing before the Olympic Torch arrives. $ 49 deposit) Pepsi or 7-Up, Regular or Diet Varieties 12 x 355 mL (+applicable 3 ONLY $ ea. 17 ONLY Fresh Meats & Deli ea. 99 Specials for the Week Jan. 20th-Jan. 26th Cold FX or Immunity FX Regular Strength 42-46's Beef Tenderloin Always a treat $ 99 /lb Reg. $10.00m PACIFIC CLUB SHOWER CURTAIN Reg. $19.98 ea Reg. $10.00m $ 99 FLEECE PRINTS Reg. $19.00m TOTES Huge selection. 7 75 00 ea % OFF reg.

Eight expert presenters as well as local and federal politicians will be taking part in the one-plus day Business Boot Camp, to be held at the Rotary Centre for the Arts. "Our presenters will talk on various aspects of successfully running and managing a business," said organizer Howard Rensler. "We have a lot of talent, expertise and very good ideas (in the Okanagan Valley) but just because someone happens to be exceptionally good at what they provide doesn't always mean they are great business people." Rensler says the Business Boot Camp idea will bring successful business people together in one place to speak on different topics. It will also give business people a chance to ask questions of local politicians who will take part in a politicos firing line and talk about local opportunities. "We're trying to get people to think not necessarily outside of the box, but to expand the box," said Rensler. "They are thinking locally but we have had some entrepreneurs and skilled people take their product much beyond the valley and that's something we're trying to push." The keynote speak- er for the event is Stockwell Day, the OkanaganCoquitlam MP and now the head of the treasury board. Day's experience in a number of government ministries directly speaks to the opportunities that await businesses who are looking more globally than locally, said Rensler. "With the recent changes in the economy you have to be good at everything, in terms of marketing your business, man- aging and planning your business," he said. "Our tagline is the business paradigm is shifting. What that means for independent or small business is they have to do more than be good at the job and provide a good service." About 100 tickets of the 325 that are available have been sold for the event that takes place Feb. 19 and 20.

NEWS CRIME Pink Grapefruit Imported Limit 8 Back Attached Chicken Legs Bagged Fresh Scammers get brazen, demand money in Internet scam Police remind Lake Country residents to be aware of Internet scams when buying or selling items online. Accovrding to Cst. Ted Bowen, Lake Country RCMP continue to investigate reports of Internet fraud where innocent people lose various sums of money as a result of frauds that are generally very similar. One example was reported to police on Jan. 12 by a Lake Country resident who had been defrauded of $2,500, during what was believed to be a legitimate transaction involving the sale of a motorcycle. On this occasion the fraudster, who was posing as a buyer, contacted the seller via email on a number of occasions. The buyer eventually indicated intent to purchase the motorcycle, sight unseen, for $8,000 and would pay for the item via PayPal, which is a trusted, secure means of payment for Internet purchases. Shortly there after, the seller received an email from an entity claiming to be PayPal, confirming that $10,500 had been paid by the purchaser, but that the funds would not be released to the seller until a $2,500 "seller packing fee" had been paid, via money transfer, to a third party in China that was supposedly handling the shipping arrangements. The scam entailed that the seller would then recover the $2,500 when the $10,500 was released by PayPal. At this point the seller became suspicious and attempted to investigate whether the transaction was fraudulent. Before being satisfied about the buyer's intentions, however, the seller was pressured into sending the $2,500 after the purchaser sent a threatening email advising that they would be reporting the seller to the authorities for fraud if the money was not sent immediately.

Everyone is invited to take part in the fifth annual White Rabbit Showshoe Race at Crystal Mountain Ski Resort on the Westside. This year there will be a 10-kilometre race as well as the regular five-kilometre race. There are categories for men and women 16 years of age and older and a youth category for those 10 to 15 years of age. There are prizes for the first three finishers for each race, and in each category, as well as some spot prizes or door prizes. Participants need to be "moderately fit" according to Jordie Bowen of Selah Outdoor Explorations, but he says racing on snowshoes is like walking or running. "If you walk naturally and take your mind off the snowshoes, they don't get in the way of each other," he explained. The race will begin at 9 a.m. on Saturday, Jan. 30, and follows the main snowshoe trail, beginning on a plateau above Crystal Mountain, by the triple chair. Registration forms can be picked up at Far West, Venture Gear, Outbound Cycle, Fresh Air Experience, Outdoor Adventure Gear and at Crystal Mountain; or online at: www.crystalresort.com Other sponsors include the Gormans sawmill, the UPS Store, the Cherry Pit and from Selah Outdoor Explorations. University to host talk about tolerance Cindy Holmes, a PhD candidate in Interdisciplinary Studies at UBC Okanagan, will give a free public talk about tolerance, violence, safety and belonging, at UBC Okanagan on Thursday, Jan. 28, 2:15 p.m. Holmes holds a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council doctoral fellowship at UBC Okanagan. Her dissertation research draws on critical race, queer, feminist and spatial theories to examine how interlocking forms of violence, safety and belonging are imagined and produced in different contexts and scales. Alongside her academic work, Holmes has worked with community groups for more than 20 years in the areas of violence against women, violence in the lives of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning people, health promotion and anti-oppression education. Holmes' talk, titled A Reputation For Tolerance: Examining Contested Geographies of Belonging in Kelowna, is presented by the Culture/Power Speaker Series, organized by David Jefferess and Lindsay Balfour in collaboration with the Cultural Studies program at UBC Okanagan, and the Alternator Gallery. Funding support is provided by a SSHRC standard research grant, and UBC Okanagan's department of critical studies and the faculty of critical and creative studies.

The conference keynote speaker, Jeff Hay, has a background in recreation, teaching, broadcasting and motivational speaking. Hay says traditional parenting roles have changed dramatically in the last 20 years. With more moms returning to the workforce, fathers today are becoming more involved in the early years of their child's life, moving away from the lonely roles of punisher/protector/provider to the more diverse tasks of being a nurterer, playmate and mentor. At the conference, Hay plans to explore the evolving roles of mom and dad in today's busy world, different styles of parenting and different childcare programs that attract both moms and dads. Free onsite child care is offered while spaces last. The conference is Feb 6, 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., at the Martin Avenue Community Centre in Kelowna. The registration fee is $30 per person, $50 per couple. Pre-registration is required. The conference fee includes lunch, the keynote address and three workshops of your choice.

Silver Star Mountain Resort is currently determining if any financial action will be taken against the 34-year-old man, 37-year-old woman and 11-year-old girl who left the marked area at Putnam Creek Sunday, Jan. 16. "We will do a formal interview and assess that (recovering search costs) as more information becomes available," said Michael Sherwood, general manager. "It's a real possibility." Silver Star's ski patrol was first contacted by the family via cell phone at 4 p.m. and the trio indicated they had gone out of bounds. "It was clearly marked. The area they went through was 20 feet from the sign," said Sherwood. Twenty-one members of Vernon Search and Rescue were also called in to assist with the search, but finding the family was difficult because they had taken their skis off CONTRIBUTED WHILE SKI conditions at Big White Ski Resort are ideal as indicated above, a recent incident that saw three people rescued at the Silver Star Mountain Resort is a reminder for all skiers of the importance to not go out of bounds. and hiked around. They could not provide a specific location to emergency crews. The lost party was found at about 9 p.m. by a ski patrol member and it took an hour for them to walk to a ski run where they were then transported to the village. "The little girl was the coldest but they were all fine," said Jon Ottesen, with Search and Rescue. Sherwood says resort boundaries are marked for a reason. "They put their life in jeopardy and the lives of our patrol and Search and Rescue. You can get into an avalanche area," he said. Ottesen is also not pleased that boundaries were ignored. "That area is not patrolled and there will be spots where it's not safe to ski," he said. "If you're not found right away, it can run into days looking for them." Unlike Silver Star Mountain Resort, the volunteer Search and Rescue unit will not send a bill to the family to recover the costs of the search. Ottesen fears that placing a cost on such incidents could backfire. "If someone is out of bounds and they know they may get billed, they may not call for help," he said. + taxes & fees $185 629 Varadero 7 Nights 4-Star from + taxes & fees $292 698 749 $ from $ from $ from $ + taxes & fees $196 547 + taxes & fees $210 + taxes & fees $215 789 Puerto Vallarta 7 Nights 3-Star UPGRADE to from $ + taxes & fees $264 497 675 JANUARY 15 - FEBRUARY 25 4-star accom from $7 per night. from $ + taxes & fees $280 + taxes & fees $536 889 Mayan Riviera 8 Nights 3.5-Star UPGRADE to 4-star accom from $28 per night. from $ from $ + taxes & fees $280 Cruise Vacations Cancun 7 Nights 4-Star Punta Cana 7 Nights 4.5-Star INCLUDES junior 725 Anaheim Air + 3 Nights + 4-Night Cruise from INCLUDES air + taxes & fees $312 797 suite accom.

The Heat men's and women's teams remain firmly atop their respective BCCAA standings with identical and perfect 10-0 records after taking care of their perennial rivals, the VIU Mariners, over the weekend in Kelowna. Greg Poitras and the men's squad swept away VIU on Friday night, 2521, 25-15, 25-19. Chris Howe led the Heat with 11 points on six kills, three aces and two stuff blocks, while Brett Uniat had six kills and four stuffs. On Saturday, it was a tighter match with the Heat emerging 3-1 (2522, 28-30, 26-24, 25-22). Mark Broome paced UBCO with 15 kills and three blocks, while Nate Speijer contributed 15 points on 11 kills, three aces and one stuff.

Former VIU Mariner star Leigh Dreher led Heat scorers with 14 kills and was also a force on defense with 16 digs. Alex Basso added 11 kills and a stuff block, Sara Zaytsoff was near perfect in the middle with seven kills, two stuff blocks and was error free, and Lenai Schmidt chipped in 15 digs from the libero position. Kirsten Lawson came off the bench with some key serving in the third set to help turn the match around. On Saturday, a more efficient Heat effort in a 3-0 win (25-18, 26-24, 25-17).

Steve Manuel ROB BROWN/PHOTOWERX UBC OKANAGAN middle Chris Howe scores with a kill as the Heat swept VIU in men's volleyball action Saturday in Kelowna. VIU, the Heat was glad to get two more matches in the win column. "I don't think either team brought their A game, we just played a little better than they did," said Poitras, the Heat's head coach. "It's nice to be 10-0, but we're not focusing on our record, we're focusing more on the process. "We want to be peaking for provincials, so we're concentrating on our practises and not dwelling on the fact that we've haven't lost yet. We just want to keep getting better." The No. 1-Heat are now in firm command of the conference at 10-0. "This was a great measuring stick for us," said head coach Steve Manuel. "Having gone undefeated until now and we wanted to see how we stacked up against VIU. We are far from playing our best volleyball but we are definitely on track." Both Heat volleyball squads will travel to Cranbrook this weekend for two matches with College of the Rockies. Following a bye week, the Heat men and women will be back home court Feb. 5 and 6 to take on Douglas College. BCHL Warriors use powerplay The Westside Warriors powered their way past a trio of B.C. Hockey League rivals on the weekend. Or shall we say power-played. The Warriors used a potent power play to down Williams Lake, Merritt and Trail on the weekend, improving its BCHL record to 33-13-1-1, the third best mark in the league. The Warriors scored 10 power play goals on the weekend, improving its overall power play percentage to 25 per cent, also third best in the league. Warriors coach Darren Yopyk says the success of the power play comes directly from the players. "We have good pieces," said Yopyk. "We have some good offensive ability and a nice mix. It's been working out very well. Sometimes the best thing a coach can do is get out of the way." Westside pounded Williams Lake 10-1, beat Merritt 4-1 and handed Trail a 7-3 loss on the weekend. Those three teams reside near the bottom of the BCHL standings and were games the Warriors were expected to win. This weekend will be tougher with a double header against the Vernon Vipers in Vernon on tap after a home game against the Surrey Eagles on Thursday. The Vipers are considered one of the the top Junior A teams in all of Canada with a 39-5-0-2 record while the Eagles are 25-18-0-5 in the BCHL Coastal Conference. Slump tests Rockets confidence Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER Eleven losses in 12 games would test the confidence and resolve of any hockey team. The key for the slumping Kelowna Rockets, according to coach Ryan Huska, is resisting the temptation to wallow in self doubt. "I think our biggest challenge for us is keeping the guys focused and believing in themselves," said head coach Ryan Huska. "When things aren't going well, it's easy for guys to get down and say `Here we go again'. "But we have to stay away from that kind of thinking and keep the guys positive," he continued. "Once you get a win or two, then things can turn around pretty quickly." The eighth-place Rockets will try and right the ship beginning tonight at home against the Chilliwack Bruins. Kelowna (19-25-2-1) has enjoyed a measure of success against the Bruins this season with five wins in six meetings. Still, Huska expects the Rockets will have their hands full against Marc Habscheid's crew. "The (Bruins) are not an easy team to play against, they're very structured like every Marc Habscheid team, so you have to be prepared to win games 2-1 or 3-2," Huska said. "We need to grind things out, and see if we can get points to get us going back in the right direction." While his club hasn't won since Jan. 2, Huska has at least seen a glimmer of hope over the last couple of games. Onegoal losses to Portland and Red Deer yielded just one point but, for the most part, the Rockets played with conviction. "I liked the way we played against Portland and two of three periods against Red Deer were pretty good as well," Huska said. "It's a matter of putting 60 minutes together on a consistent basis. If we can do that, we'll start to see some results." The injury-riddled Rockets are gradually returning to health. Forward Geordie Wudrick (shoulder) should be ready for this weekend's road trip to Prince George, while Spencer Main (concussion) could be back skating within the week. Evan Bloodoff (knee) is still six weeks away from a return. Informed and in your community.

The Heat (6-3) will host Langara Friday and Saturday. Skiing in the trees is great fun especially here at Big White Ski Resort amongst the Snow Ghosts. Here's a couple of pointers that will make this experience easier and less intimidating. Sometimes when you're skiing in the trees you run into situations where it's not a case of wanting to make a turn it's more of a case of having to make a turn. To make sure you can pull this off you need some foot speed and quickness in the legs. Build this quickness up by trying some short hop turns on a wide open slope. See if you can keep your upper body facing down the hill while you hop so that your skis are across the hill each time you land. You'll need to stay centered on your skis so be sure to feel the entire length of the bottoms of your feet each time you land as well. A strong pole plant will help keep your turns well timed along with providing some stability. Once you're comfortable with this see if you can make some short tight turns with out the hop. When the short turns feel good start by trying some trees that are a bit more spaced apart, establish your short turn rhythm right from the start and continue it as you head down the hill. Lastly and probably the most important thing is to look at the spaces between the trees and not the trees themselves. It's amazing how small a space you can fit through if you're looking ahead for them! Josh Foster Director of Snow Sports Big White Ski Resort t t For the first time in school history, the Kelowna Christian Knights are the No. 1 team in B.C. high school girls A basketball.

The veteran Kelowna skip won four straight games at the Interior playdowns in Kamloops over the weekend to earn one of four berths at the provincials, Feb. 1 to 7. Gretzinger, third Rob Koffski, second Brent Giles and lead Russell Koffski edged fellow Kelowna curler Jeff Richard 7-6 in the A event qualifier on Saturday afternoon at the McArthur Island Curling Club. Gretzinger, the 1999 B.C. men's champion, also won games over Kelowna's Grant Olsen, Fred Thomson of Nelson and Kevin Marks of Grand Forks. Meanwhile, the Jeff Richard foursome is on its way to the B.C. championship for the second year in a row. Richard qualified out of the C event on Sunday with a 9-5 win over Vernon's Brad Kuhn. Down 3-1, the Kelowna rink seized control of the game with a big fourender in the fifth, then put the game on ice with three more in the seventh end. Richard is joined by third Tom Shypitka, second Tyler Orme and lead Chris Anderson. Also qualifying out of the Interior are Nelson's Fred Thomson, who won the B event qualifier, and Kimberley's Tom Buchy who came out of the C event along with Richard. The B.C. championship next month will feature a round-robin format with 10 rinks, including 2008 champ Bob Ursel of Kelowna, who qualified for Vernon thanks to his points accumulation this season on the cash circuit.

LONG TRACK Records fall for Kelowna speed skaters Two members of the Kelowna Speed Skating Club have themselves a place in the B.C. record books. Chris Neykov and Mitchell McCullough each established a new provincial speed skating standards in the juvenile boys division last weekend at the Alberta Indoor Long Track Championships in Calgary. Chris, 13, a student at Rutland Middle School, lowered the 300-metre record to 27.01 seconds. The previous record was held by Nicholas Goplen at 27.34. Mitchell,12, a student at KLO Middle School lowered the 1000m time to 1:25.78 from 1:27.08, a record also held previously by Goplen. Both boys also improved their personal bests in all distances. Chris finished fourth overall while Mitchell finished seventh in a very strong field. "It was great to see the boys break the provincial records that have been held by Nicholas," said Okanagan regional coach Nancy Goplen. "It means that these boys are on a great pathway to excellence. Like Nick, these boys do not have access to a long track oval so it makes it more remarkable. "Chris also does not have the proper long track blades so it took extra effort to keep up with the skaters who were able to glide faster. He has a lot of natural sprinting ability so he did very well in the shorter distances while Mitchell excelled in the longer races." Meanwhile, Kerry Bennett,14 and a student from OKM, had personal bests in all four distances and finished first over-all in the mixed open division. Her brother Cameron, 16, finished fifth overall in a strong field of 15 in the junior boys division with personal bests in all distances.

V1X 7K2 Now the West wants in estern Canada will play a more important role in Canada, two Maclean's Magazine correspondents state. Andrew Coyne and Paul Wells are currently involved in a dialogue about this issue with many people in Western Canada. There are several factors that are leading to the rise of the West's clout in Canada. One is simple population growth. Alberta and B.C. and even Saskatchewan are growing at a 2009 WINNER 2009 W BRUCE MCAULIFFE Publisher BARRY GERDING Managing Editor Advertising Manager ALAN MONK Real Estate Weekly Manager TESSA RINGNESS Production Manager GLENN BEAUDRY Flyer Delivery Manager AMBER GERDING Classified Manager GARY JOHNSTON MAIN SWITCHBOARD 250-763-3212 steady pace. While growth has moderated from that experienced in the boom times of a few short years ago, all four western provinces are growing faster than the national average. Then there's the issue of resources. Western Canada has something that is not present in the east to any great degree -- natural resources in abundance. The most important by far is oil and gas, which is an increasingly scarce commodity throughout the world, yet is the foundation of modern economies. When it comes to "going green," the western provinces also have an edge. B.C. and Manitoba both have enormous hydro power resources, which do not contribute to greenhouse gases. All four provinces have large forested areas, which help contribute oxygen and digest carbon dioxide and make the planet a better place. When the Reform Party was creating a wave in Ottawa in the late 1980s and 1990s, its slogan was "The West wants in." This message was eagerly devoured by hundreds of thousands of people who are now a key part of the present Conservative government. Western Canada has definitely come of age. It is not a unified region but attitudes in most parts of Western Canada are similar--we want to be part shaping Canada's future, and have the clout to help make our country's potential a reality.

As the would-be robber grappled There's no question the actions with the woman, the duo, who were standing in line a short distance away, sprang into action, wrestled the man to the ground and held him until police officers arrived. Before and during the altercation, the man inferred he had a gun and threatened to shoot people, including Heiderbrecht and Traub. Where many would have walked away--or more likely run--this dynamic duo stepped up, took action and stopped the would-be thief in his tracks. There's no question about their bravery. What is troubling, however, is the message the police have sent by publicly handing out the commendations in the way they did. But what do you do when someone does something you specifically ask them not to do but it turns out for the better? You want to show your gratitude and let others know you are grateful. But you don't want to encourage others to do the same. Or do you? On one hand, the police don't want us channeling our inner Charles Bronson--remember him as the vigilante in the Death Wish film series?-- dispensing homegrown justice and stepping in to stop crimes that are taking place. At least that is what they say publicly. But they do want to recognize people who make a difference in the community even if that sometimes includes people who don't follow the "rules." To do otherwise would seem, well, ungrateful. On Monday, the Kelowna RCMP publicly commended Heiderbrecht and Traub for putting themselves in harm's way, calling them heroes and paying tribute to their character. The descriptions sound fitting to me. But in the same breath the police cautioned other members of the public about doing the same. Now that's a mixed message.

Saturdays 1:30 to 4:30 pm Feb. 13 � March 6 � Learn about the four principles of effective parenting � Identifying long-term goals � Providing warmth and structure � Understanding how children think and feel � Problem solving Serious lesson learned To the editor: I read the column in the Capital News for Sunday, Jan. 17: The Vehicles We Drive are like Loaded Weapons. Pedestrians are usually very safe when crossing roads especially during daylight hours when everyone is visible. Whether they choose to jaywalk across Gordon Drive is their choice. For me, I would never do that again. I'm a mother of two children. I walk everywhere and I take my kids all the time with me. I have a green and brown stroller and the green part is more like neon--that way people in their vehicles will see me. Whether they are on the phone or texting is their choice. They jeopardize their lives and others while on the road. I learned my own lesson 16 years ago when I got hit by a truck on the highway down in the South Okanagan. I swore to myself I will never jaywalk again and don't like to see other people chancing their own lives to try and get to the store quicker by jaywalking. Half the time I will ask the people that do it "are you crazy you could get yourself killed." I never got my learners (driver's licence) but I do know the rules of the road whether people remember them and use them accordingly is their choice. I do agree with one thing: Senior citizens should have their vision and hearing checked every year. I've had at least 10 of them in vehicles almost sideswipe my stroller and me. It is dangerous out there, but it's everyone's choice on whether they abide by the law or be stupid and chance getting killed. I learned my lesson as I am lucky to be alive today. Whether other people are willing to listen or not, how many people have to die before everyone gets it through their head? Heather Tite, Kelowna Deterrence not used To the editor: I must assume your intentions were honourable, when you wrote your Christmas Day editorial. But you spoiled my holidays with the usual advice: Don't drink and drive. Do you believe that by repeating this well worn advice you made even the slightest impact on those who do? Instead, there is a program called the Alcohol Ignition Interlock Program. It's used throughout the world with very positive results. After much lobbying, our B.C. government finally adopted enabling legislation in 2003. But as time went by, we found that the great potential available has not nearly been tapped. Simply speaking, when one is placed on the program, they have a device installed in their car and by blowing into it, it will not only read the alcohol content in the breath, but if that reading is excessive, the car will not start. But there is one major problem. Our judges have the authority to enforce the legislation but they seldom do. For some unknown reason, the person with the most influence with regard to this program is the Superintendent of Motor Vehicles. It appears that he seldom uses the legislation to protect the public but rather, he appears to protect the person charged with drinking while under the influence of alcohol.

However, the mayor's suggestion of going after those--the majority unfortunately--who choose not to license their pet is an excellent idea. Dog Control could pursue this vigorously, imposing a fine of, say, $300 for any dog not having a current tag. And while they are at it, a $75 fine if the owner can't show they are supplied with adequate bags--I'd like to retire from my uncompensated job of cleaning up other people's mess. Good luck to administrator Harold Reay and his program of education. A few hefty fines, well publicized, would be all the education needed.

Our focus turns to getting back on track with life and maybe a few resolutions. The holidays are a time when we are all reminded of the virtues of giving to others and loving our fellow man. It's a time of year when we often see the kindest, most selfless and generous side of people. As we launch 2010 wouldn't it be wonderful if we all did our best to embrace these qualities throughout the entire year? We are fortunate to live in a beautiful part of the world with majestic mountains, impressive lakes, beautiful golf course and wineries. However, our province has the dubious distinction of having the highest child poverty rate in the country. Furthermore, in 2031 it is estimated that 31 per cent of Okanagan residents will be senior citizens. These residents are going to need services ranging from basic transportation to health care and social services. And, as in any community, we have neighbours and coworkers who struggle with issues of addictions, mental health, literacy and poverty. This year, I ask you to consider what contribution you can make to the beautiful community we are all so fortunate to be a part of. It's a gift that will last all year long as you will benefit from living in a community which you helped to improve by providing programs that better the lives of tens of thousands of individuals. Your local United Way supports non-profit agencies in the Central and South Okanagan/Similkameen--and all monies remain in this community. We have not yet reached our goal of raising $1.35 million for local residents in need, but we're very close. Please take a look at our website at www.unitedwaycso.com or call 250-8602356 to learn how you can make hope real for vulnerable residents of your community.

I don't really see any tenders for the work. Compare the price to how many houses could have been built for that kind of money. The city has taken the attitude of easy come, easy go. Now they want to spend $8,000 plus for a T.V. What next? They said money could have been given to better use such as building sidewalks at schools, and many other needed things. Let's start with the huge amounts paid to department heads. The 30 per cent raise they got was unreal. Much needed cuts are due. In 2010 there should be no property tax increases. (Where that money has) gone in the past--not well used. Mayor and council: Stop using the taxpayers as if they are a gold mine.

These drugs were actually contaminated by a chemical used to treat wood on the pallets used to transport the raw ingredients of the drugs to the manufacturing plant. The recall applies to some batches of Tylenol caplets and gel tabs. Some Tylenol arthritis treatments, both rapid release and extended relief. Motrin IB, chewable extra-strength Rolaids, Benadryl allergy tablets and St. Joseph aspirin. The symptoms that led to an investigation of the poisonings were very common symptoms for other ailments, such as vomiting, diarrhea and cramping. Many patients showed up at the emergency room only to be told it was nothing to worry about. Some people told me about their experience, where the tainted products they took ultimately resulted in a ride in the ambulance to the hospital. Yes, pharmaceuticals do have there place in the medical world, but pills do have a tendency to be over-prescribed. And dealing in the volumes that pharmaceutical companies manufacture of different products, it seems at least once a year recall notices are publicized. Sometimes the potential for a recall is known about before the drug leaves the manufacturing facility, but it still leaves the plant because the cost of recalling or stopping production on a particular medication is more than what any lawsuit potentially might cost the company. I don't suggest you forego any prescriptions or over the counter medi- FINDING REMEDIES John Sherman cations that you choose to take, just realize that their are other alternatives out there. Homeopathic remedies, for example, can offer many effective alternatives to drugs commonly used everyday whether prescription or OTC. There is a Health Canada website-- www. hc-sc.gc.ca/dhp-mps/ compli-conform/recallretrait/_list/index-eng. php or www.hc-sc.gc.ca/ ahc-asc/media/advisoriesavis/alpha-eng.php-- where you can view a list of recalled drugs and medical devices. It may be a month or so behind, but it does offer some eye opening information. It is interesting to note that there are literally thousands of products that have been recalled because of safety concerns for the user. This also includes herbal products and imported foods that have been contaminated with heavy metals and pesticides at their countries of origin, such as China and India. It is absolutely impossible to inspect every piece of cargo, food or drug that comes in or goes out of our country. For that reason alone, drug recalls will occur.

A: BC's Return-ItTM Electronics is a province-wide end-of-life electronics recycling program available to all consumers and businesses in British Columbia. You can drop off any of the regulated products at designated collection sites without charge, and be assured they will be recycled responsibly. Q: Why is this program important? A: Electronic waste contains valuable resources such as metals that can and should be recycled. In addition they can contain hazardous materials that could pose environmental problems in our landfill sites. This program ensures that electronics are processed and recycled in a safe and environmentally sound manner thereby keeping them out of landfills. This program also ensures that obsolete electronic components and electronic scrap is not exported to developing nations. Recycling is the answer.

As a result of changes to federal legislation, the line just become somewhat more blurry. Historically, only employees were eligible for EI coverage. The risk of not having that aspect of the social security net to fall back on was just one of the many risks of being an independent contractor. In December, the Fairness for the Self-Employed Act (who says government isn't warm and fuzzy?) was passed. It permits self-employed persons to opt into the EI program to receive special benefits. The EI coverage for which the self-employed will now be eligible includes maternity, parental, sickness, and compassionate care benefits. They will not be eligible for regular EI wage replacement benefits. The new eligibility O LEGAL EASE Robert Smithson rules are effective as of the beginning of 2010. Due to the way the rules work, however, selfemployed persons who opt into the EI program will not be able to collect any benefits payments until January 2011. Generally speaking, people who operate their own business are considered to be self-employed. Some occupations will, however, be ineligible, including barbers, hairdressers, taxi drivers, certain other drivers of passenger-carrying vehicles, and certain fishers. To become eligible for coverage, a self-employed person must enter into an agreement with the Canada Employment Insurance Commission. This can be achieved online. Once a self-employed person enters into the agreement, he or she has 60 days to reconsider. This window of opportunity should not be taken lightly because the implications of opting into the EI program are significant. Once the self-employed person has opted into the EI program, he or she can opt out but only if benefits payments have not been received. If benefits have been received, the person must continue to pay EI premiums on income for as long as he or she remains self-employed. If the self-employed person does opt out, he or she must continue to pay EI premiums until the end of that calendar year. No refunds of EI premiums will be made upon opting out. To qualify to receive these special EI benefits, the self-employed person must have experienced an interruption of earnings due to the birth of a child, the need to provide care to a newborn (or adopted) child, illness, injury, quarantine, or the need to provide care to a gravely ill relative. The self-employed person must also have earned a minimum specified amount of earnings in the year prior to the claim (for 2010 the specified amount is $6,000). Benefits payments cannot be received until one year after the person opted into the EI program. There is a two-week waiting period after an application to receive benefits payments is made. EI maternity benefits payments last up to 15 weeks' duration, parental benefits up to 35 weeks, sickness benefits up to 15 weeks, and compassionate care benefits up to six weeks. It seems to me there are several reasons why most independent contractors, or self-employed persons, will take a pass on this new entitlement to opt into the EI program. First, for many of them, avoiding the burden of payments such as EI premiums is one reason they chose to be self-em- ployed to begin with. Second, if they do opt in, they won't be eligible to receive regular EI benefits in the event of a normal, lack-of-work interruption of earnings. Third, once they have received any benefits at all, they must continue to pay premiums for the entire balance of their selfemployed career. (Like the Hotel California, you can check out anytime you like, but you can never leave...) If you're a self-employed person, you might think this isn't much of a bargain. If that's your view, you'll stay true to your independent contractor roots and avoid this aspect of the social security net.

The marketplace turns an invention into an innovation. It is only when technological know-how is developed, sold, distributed and used that it becomes an innovation. Some ideas are a technical success, and may even be patented, but can't be sold. The road from idea to marketplace is often long and uncertain. On Thursday, Jan. 21, 5 p.m., the ongoing weekly Okanagan Institute Express series starts a new year at the Bohemian Cafe by presenting Innovation Vineyard: Challenges and Opportunities . Douglas MacLeod, the associate dean of science, technology and health at Okanagan College, will lead a session on how we can become one of the most innovative regions in the country. Here in the Okanagan, MacLeod says there are companies that are pioneering new approaches to doing business. Those experiences suggest five ways that our valley could play a leadership role in addressing this issue: 1. Using high quality design is the easiest, fastest and most economical way to increase your bottom line through innovation. 2. Cloud computing is the idea that small and large companies can tap into enormous computing resources at a data centre via the Internet but only pay for what they need and use. This leads to the concept of "software as a service" where you access only the software you want when you want it. Companies across the country could save thousands of dollars a year by embracing this approach. 3. The valley could pioneer the idea of being "resource positive" which means that we develop buildings and communities that generate more energy than they consume and purify more water than they use. 4. Social networking can also be used to foster innovation. Innocentive (www.innocentive.com) is a global website where companies can post research problems and individuals can suggest solutions for cash rewards from $5,000 to $1 million. There is no reason why a similar service could not be set up for Okanaganbased companies. 5. Recognize the importance of small business in driving innovation. Too often we hear of the need to pick "winners" and focus investment in large population centres and facilities while ignoring the fact that in British Columbia more than 90 per cent of our technology companies are small businesses.

REGION Olympic opportunity to promote the Okanagan The Okanagan Valley Economic Development Society has organized a special event at the Commerce Centre in Vancouver to bring together Okanagan businesses, trade commissioners and Olympic media to promote investment in our region. Scott Boswell, chair of OVEDS, said, "The Olympics are the world's largest advertising campaign and to link into that media coverage is a fantastic way to promote our region and its business opportunities." The event will showcase a variety of Okanagan wines and specialty food products, along with a cooking demonstration with celebrity chef Ned Bell. OVEDS will be working with the unaccredited media centre, which will be home to more than 400 media personnel to target media coverage in the United Kingdom, USA, Germany, Holland, Austria, China and Japan. Corie Griffiths, vicechair of OVEDS, said, "We want to show the world that the Okanagan region is progressive and innovative and offers investment opportunities in high tech, green infrastructure and agri-food and at the same time offers an exceptional quality of life." OVEDS is setting up a website at www.okanagThe War Amps anstories.ca to host Olympic related stories on local athletes and businesses that have worked directly with the Olympics. Businesses that have connections to the seven targeted countries will also be hosted on the site. OVEDS is a joint initiative between the Economic Development Commissions throughout the Okanagan. Its primary objective is to design and implement economic development initiatives that support collective opportunities for the region. Its members include Penticton, Summerland, Central Okanagan Regional District (CORD), Thompson Okanagan Tourism Association (TOTA) and Vernon.

Asthma is effecting many more people in developed countries than ever before. Children are missing school, their parents are experiencing more time off work due to the complications of asthma. No one is quite sure why asthma is on the rise. Some studies suggest it is because most young children are now being raised in a much cleaner environment than they were years ago. This eliminates exposure to environmental irritants which prevents their young bodies from producing antibodies early to give them protection later in life. Therefore, they are without this natural protection and may be more vulnerable to environmental challenges. There are two components to asthma. The individual susceptibility and environmental exposure. A person with asthma has more sensitive airways which react to challenges to a much greater degree. The big four challenges are irritants, infections, exercise, and emotions. At SciMed we believe asthma is a primary protective response to irritants and other factors that could damage a persons sensitive airways. As a protection, when challenged the airways tighten up to cause the wheeze and the shortness of breath, associated with asthma. With the right medication and avoiding environmental challenges, people with asthma can and should lead a near normal life. If your answer to one or more of the above questions is yes, you may qualify to participate in a research study with a new investigational oral therapy for asthma.

Gout is an extremely painful condition that can effect people of all races and ages. It can effect both men and women but it is more common in men. It is uncommon in children and young adults. Gout used to be considered a problem for the rich, kings, gentry, and others who ate too much and drank too much wine. Some people have a genetic predisposition due to a disorder of purine metabolism. In these individuals attacks of gout can be triggered by eating foods high in purines and by consuming high quantities of alcohol. Others can have secondary gout. Secondary gout is associated with another medical condition such as obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, kidney disorders, certain medications, particularly diuretics (water pills), salicylates (aspirin), and niacin. Gout is caused by a build up of uric acid in the blood which settlles out as uric acid crystals in the joints. This causes pain, redness, and swelling. Any joint can be involved. Classic signs of gout are pain, redness, and swelling in the big toe or elbow. The pain can be both chronic or can present suddenly. A number of therapies are available. Some more successful than others. SciMed Research is starting a research trial to evaluate a new investigational therapy to lower uric acid, the cause of gout. If you have been diagnosed with or suffer from gout symptoms you may qualify to participate in this research trial. Please call SciMed Research to register for a no cost obligation consultation to see if you are an appropriate candidate for this gout study.

As of Jan. 1, 2010, Canadians can add another $5,000 to their TFSA. An indexing formula will be applied annually to determine whether the TFSA contribution room will increase, with the resulting figure rounded to the nearest $500. If you did not get around to making your TFSA contribution in 2009, do not worry. Any unused contribution room gets carried forward to allow you a $10,000 contribution for 2010. As the TFSA enters the second year, investors should become more aware of their options of what type of investment to hold in your TFSA. Goals, risk tolerance and age should be a factor in your decision of what type of investment to hold in your tax free account. Most people put their TFSA into a short term savings account, or GIC. With interest rates so low, there is minimal benefit to using a low paying savings account. Other investors choose equity type investments, for a long-term investment vehicle. You can choose between a savings type of account, an all-growth investment strategy, or an asset allocation blend. The same type of RRSP or RRIF investments are allowed. An individual may designate a surviving spouse or partner as a successor account holder to continue the particular TFSA, or transfer the value to the survivor's own TFSA. FISCAL FITNESS Doreen Smith The account continues to be tax-exempt, and there is no effect on the survivor's own existing TFSA contribution room. The fair market value on the date of death will be received by the estate on a tax-free basis, income received after death is taxable. `` A TFSA MAY NOT BE APPROPRIATE FOR EVERYONE. PEOPLE WITH CREDIT CARD DEBT, AND CONSUMER DEBT SHOULD PAY OFF DEBT BEFORE OPENING A TFSA. On the breakdown of a marriage or common-law partnership, any TFSA amount may be transferred from the TFSA of one spouse or partner to the TFSA of the other, while maintaining the tax-exempt status. Any amount withdrawn from your TFSA in a particular year is automatically added to your TFSA contribution room for the following year, and this amount may be carried forward indefinitely. This allows individuals to recontribute an equivalent amount in a future year. A TFSA may not be appropriate for everyone. People with credit card debt, and consumer debt should pay off debt before opening a TFSA. Paying off your mortgage may also be a better alternative than contributing to a TFSA. Low income earners should review the benefit of a TFSA over a RRSP. Contributions to a RRSP generate a tax refund at time of contribution, but when the funds are withdrawn, this amount is fully taxable. The additional income can reduce income tested benefits such as guaranteed income supplement or Pharmacare. Low income earners are better off with a TFSA withdrawal option in retirement, as these withdrawals are not considered taxable income. Any excess contributions with a RRSP or TFSA will be taxed at one per cent per month. A TFSA can be a welcome addition to tax saving strategies for Canadians.

We sometimes find ourselves travelling down a road we have convinced ourselves somehow depicts our destiny path, that will lead us to happiness and personal success. But then fate enters the picture, offering us a different journey that both excites our senses and captures our imagination. Changes in our circumstances do alter our earlier beliefs that previously might have been focussed on the realm of potential employment, which companies would applaud our newly minted knowledge, skills and desire to join their ranks for years to come. However, reality has a way of bringing change quickly to the foreground in our daily life. We are awakened to a crossroad that demands decision for tomorrow. This reality check often is the genesis for the birth of an entrepreneur. This week, let me tell you about a young woman who is quite happy with the new road she is travelling and the mantle of entrepreneurship that she wears very proudly. Teri Westerby was born in the Lower Mainland 22 years ago. Her parents believed strongly in the value of education for their two daughters. Westerby enrolled in the Vancouver Institute of Art, graduating with a degree in animation and art design, working parttime during her school years with her sister in a bakery, something both young women enjoyed very much. She remarked to me that toward the end of her formal academic program, she began to visualize that the animation industry was somewhat limiting. So, with her love of the computer, she shifted her career focus, and prepared her graduation portfolio to that of web design and service to a segment of the industry that needed it the most. Westerby shared that she began her personal change seeking self-sustainment in a small field of endeavour rather than sunshinemarket " Yo u r N e i g h b o r h o o d F r e s h F o o d S t o r e " ENTREPRENEURIAL SPIRIT Joel Young limiting growth with what was already available for career paths in her newly acquired educational competencies of animation and art design. She discovered that through this change in circumstance came for her a new sense of self-discovery. She wanted to be able to perform a professional service from any city in any location, as she also enjoys travelling, and adopted a concern of feeling trapped in a single location. Admirably, Westerby realized quickly that the new direction she was about to embark on required some champions of customer service who would contribute to changing the face of website and computer service consulting. Armed with this personal vision of self-employment, Westerby was on the brink of becoming an entrepreneur, but a few steps were still before her. Where would I begin she would ask herself many times over the days after her graduation was behind her. One morning, Westerby decided to begin her journey in the Okanagan as a close friend invited her to test the region for her new found vision. After she arrived in Kelowna, she explored several avenues of venture development and initially created her website as a freelancer's portfolio. That developed into a listing of the services she could provide as a selfemployed entrepreneur, translated into full website services for a range of clients across the valley. Westerby felt this transition was very natural to her as she gained knowledge and a larger client base. During her new venture's developmental period, her mother suggested she meet a family friend, living in Princeton, who was a retired music producer and also had years of marketing and sales experience. Richard Hudson, who Westerby considers a true friend and mentor, guided her to the launch of her entrepreneurial venture. In January 2009, Hyper Media Design was born with Westerby offering the technical expertise and her new partner Richard, the sales and marketing background. Hyper Media offers e-commerce solutions, search engine optimization, content management, web design and development which translates to a full web service regime. Pretty amazing for this talented woman who epitomizes what wonderment a "change in circumstance" can bring to our lives. Westerby says her committed goal, as a young entrepreneur, is to put effective client service at the forefront of her entrepreneurial journey. Check this talent out at www.hypermedia.ca.

To arrange an appointment call the pharmacist at 250-860-2232. A second clinic will be held Wednesday, Jan. 27, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., at the London Drugs located in Westbank, 2151 Louie Dr. To arrange an appointment call the pharmacist at 250-768-8504. For those who want to eat better, the London Drugs Nutrition & Metabolism Clinic is a great step. At the clinic, the pa- tient care pharmacist will perform a body composition analysis that will reveal the Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR), percentage of body fat, percentage of water and fat free mass using the Tanita 3000 machine. BMR is the calculation of the number of calories you need to consume each day to perform functions such as keeping your blood flowing and digesting food. Throughout the 45-minute personalized consultation the patient care pharmacist will access height and the waist to hip measurement. It is recommended that clinic participants avoid intense exercise twelve hours before the test, avoid eating or drinking (especially caffeinated products) four hours before the test, empty their bladder thirty minutes before the test and should not consumer alcohol 48 hours before taking the body composition analysis. Through discussions with the patient care pharmacist, participants will be able to assess eating habits and learn about what makes up a healthy diet. The clinic is designed to help participants meet their nutrition and exercise goals through take away materials explaining the importance of consuming a healthy diet and maintaining physical activity.

The pool was originally scheduled to re-open on Feb. 1, and will now reopen on Feb. 6. Swimming lessons scheduled to start between Monday, Feb. 1, and Friday, Feb. 5, will now start one week later. All aquatics programs starting on Saturday Feb. 6 or after will not be affected. Recreation staff will be contacting all impacted participants and a credit will be applied to their account for cancelled lessons. On Nov. 30, 2009,the aquatics centre was closed for annual maintenance and to replace the deck tile. The fitness centre, gymnasium and other non-aquatics programs were not impacted by this construction and remain open. "The new deck makes a significant improvement to the facility," says City of Kelowna recreation and culture services manager Lori Angus. "It has been a long closure this year, and we appreciate the patience of our patrons. Our staff is looking forward to getting back in the pool and delivering the exceptional aquatics programming that the Parkinson Recreation Centre is so well known for." Aquatic areas including the main pool, children's play pool, whirlpool and steam room are now scheduled to reopen on Saturday Feb. 6, 2010.

I am not about to tell you what happened on American Idol last night. Nor am I going to write some dribble about how Lady Gaga has kidnapped one of the Jonas Brothers and won't return him unless Jay Leno returns to prime time. No, I mean business. With the whole Hollywood fa�ade, have we all forgotten what arts and culture is really about? To me, it's all about the community and the support that is derived from it. So turn off your TV for five minutes, minimize perezhilton.com, and read on. Arts and culture in Kelowna is alive, well, and one could even say thriving; you just need to know where to look. People People need to e realize that the arts don't just flourish in large cities like Vancouver or Toronto--it's happening in our own backyard. My main focus with this column is not to restate what everyone already knows, I want to provide a non-biased, reliable resource for all that is arts and culture in Kelowna. With that being said, let's get to the fun stuff. Isn't it nice to know that there are still good things happening in the world of arts and entertainment even when there is nothing good happening in the world of everything else (i.e. earthquakes, global warming/freezing, HST)? What makes me say this is a little thing called the Peak Performance Project. In short, the project was created by 100.5 The Peak (based out of Vancouver) and Music B.C. to develop B.C.-based emerging bands and artists. Every year, 20 artists are chosen and given a week long training program (a.k.a. boot camp) that covers the music business, live performance, song writing, marketing and promotion. Each artist then performs live on the Peak Performance Stage in Vancouver which was hosted by The Cellar Nightclub in 2009. From those 20 artists, three are chosen as the top Peak Performers. It all comes down to a final showcase in Vancouver (hosted by the CommoDAN MOXON, lead vocalist and dore) on Jan. 22 keyboardist for Bend Siniste r. wher where the winne ner is announced and a and awarded the mindd mindgrand grand 00 tow grand prize of $150,000 towards their catowards their c their caset of "only Vancouver bands make it ree reer. reer. big."

Although she was not a house hold name before this stunning success, Ke$ha wasn't completely unknown in the pop/ dance community. She sang back up and provided the essential hook to Flo Rida's huge summer hit Right Round and she has worked and written for Paris Hilton and The Veronicas in the past. But no one could have anticipated this sort of mega hit from such an unlikely source. The inside liner of Animal contains this disc's subtitle with It's Party Time. SOUNDING OFF Bruce Mitchell which completely sums up Animal (as in Party) with music that is not unlike Lady GaGa, LMFAO, Madonna, 3OH.3, Rihanna and a few more. The only difference might be that Ke$ha is right up front about boozing and living a life of clubland hedonism, (sample lyrics: "I brush my teeth with a bottle of Jack" as in Daniels and "I may need some rehab or maybe just some sleep"). All of this is done to a shambling techno beat and trash talk lyrics about gossip with Back$tabber and underground nude dance clubs with Take It Off. And there is no denying the immediate likeability of Ke$ha's two current hits Tik Tok and Blah Blah Blah (with 3OH.3) which makes this CD live up to its subtitle. The ballads here, however, are very weak and only serve as a respite between the full-on party techno and pop tracks that are earmarked by their unbridled liberation (or make that sexual aggression). Gloriously trashy if that is what you are fixing for. C+ CHARLOTTE GAINSBOURG: IRM (BECAUSE/WARNER) As a recording artist Charlotte Gainsbourg isn't nearly as famous as her French father Serge or as well known as her producer on IRM, Beck (his two #1 hits E-Pro and Loser). Gainsbourg is better known as the waifish actress of films such as Franco Zeffirelli's adaption of Jane Eyre and La Buche (she won a Best Supporting Actor award). But IRM (I think it is the French initials for a brain scan) is selling well in Europe and is starting to make inroads in N. America particularly on late night talk shows. Beck provides the multi-instrumental and drum machine backdrop to most of this album where the slight Gainsbourg doesn't so much sing her songs as intone them or quietly half-speak them. This is fairly mellow stuff and some is sung in French, particularly the artsy crafty Le Chat du Cafe Des Artistes. But there are a few more accessible pop tracks here with the hooky Time Of The Assassins, Heaven Can Wait and the bluesy Dandelion that shows some crossover hit potential. But certainly having big star bloodlines and a high profile producer like Beck will draw lots of attention to this new album so watch for a slow but steady progression that will likely see this album turn to precious metal--probably no more than gold. C+ LITTLE MISS HIGGINS: JUNCTION CITY (ARTS ABOARD) I happened to catch a very cool live concert of Little Miss Higgins on CBC radio late at night a couple of weeks ago and was mightily impressed with her music. She recently played at a small venue in Kelowna which is how I came about this CD and I wish I had had the time to get to it sooner--the CBC concert drew me in right away. Higgins is from a tiny little hamlet in Saskatchewan called Nokomish but it used to be nicknamed Junction City (hence the CD title) as formerly it was the junction of the CN and CP rail lines. I would only joke that this was the crossroads that provided Higgins with her wonderful talent a la Robert Johnson, but she is a fine roots musician with strong nods to folk, country, blues and a touch of rockabilly. Higgins' original songs are as solid as the covers she does of W.C. Handy's St. Louis Blues, Memphis Minnie's You Ain't Done Nothing To Me and John Hurt's Fran- kie (aka Frankie and Johnny). This is music of a time before WW II but also timeless in its wonderful roots style. Higgins is a nifty guitarist where she teases with a hint of rockabilly and Hound Dog Taylor on the great instrumental Broadcast Boogie. There is a taste of klezmer and Kurt Weill on Liar, Liar and touch of prairie-billy (there are few hills in Saskatchewan) on the amiable The Ol' Dirty Tractor Song. Little Miss Higgins does make the occasional appearance in Kelowna in small, intimate venues and she is an act to check out judging from her radio concert.

PRICE, ROBERT JAMES With heavy hearts and deep sadness we announce the sudden passing of our wonderful Sister, DEBORAH on December 14, 2009. Deborah was born and raised on May 6, 1948 in Kelowna, B.C. She was taken from us far too early and will leave a void in our lives forever. Predeceased by her parents, Elizabeth (Babs) and Cedric Stringer and infant nephew Joseph. Lovingly remembered by her brothers; David (Lois), John (Diane) and Robin (Ruth). She is also survived by her nephews Adam, Philip, Tyler, Aaron and Daniel whom she cherished with all her heart. Deborah graduated from KSS in 1966, gained her Bachelor of Education from UBC and her Masters from Gonzaga University. Deborah was a passionate and dedicated teacher who touched the hearts of many children over a span of 30 years. In life she stood tall, taking twice the steps to complete the journey. Her family, extended family and friends had the highest respect for her. She volunteered her time, energy and money to many organizations. From Foster children, to the Kelowna Family Centre, the Little Peoples? of BC. Please give to a charity of your choice in honor of our sister. A memorial service will be held at the Evangel Tabernacle Church, 3261 Gordon Drive, Kelowna on Saturday January 23, 2010 at 1:00 P.M. with Rev. Connie Cristall officiating.

Sadly predeceased by nephew Evan Wilkes. Rod will be remembered as a dedicated father and husband. He was well known in the construction field for his hard work and his integrity. Whether you had known Rod for many years or were a new acquaintance, he would take the time to help. His love of Camaros is legendary. He had just returned from a wonderful trip to Mexico with Debbie and a group of friends. In hindsight we now realize it was his last hurrah. He will be deeply missed.
