TD Canada Trust is opening a new branch in Lake Country, starting at 8 a.m. on the dot, March 26. The branch will be fully staffed with 14 people, two of whom are new hires directly out of Lake Country. Both the branch manager and the customer service manager are long-time TD Canada Trust employees from Lake Country who now have the opportunity to work close to home. Dale Safinuk, district vice-president with TD Canada Trust, says the last furnishings and supplies will be going into the bank in the next week so everything is in place for the official

opening. The branch is built along TD Canada Trust’s open concept model, designed to appeal to the community. The inside features a designated customer lounge. A completely new feature is the community meeting room which will be made available to Lake Country non-profit community service organizations. The room features a board room table with seating for eight plus full audio/visual hookups and a large screen for presentations. “The room is part of the branch concept and is intended for groups that might have a hard time finding appropriate meeting space,” explained Safinuk.

TD CANADA TRUST will open the doors to its new Lake Country branch at 8 a.m. on March 26. The new branch will have fully supported small business, commercial and agricultural lending services.

TD Canada Trust customers do not need to physically relocate their accounts to the branch as the bank operates on a

model where customers can access their preferred services anywhere. TD Canada Trust will operate the branch on its

open ‘8 till late’ model, six days per week, with the drive through automate teller machine staying open 24/7.

Former mayor objects to BC Hydro smart meters BOBBI-SUE MENARD The concerns about the installation of new electric metering devices at residences in Lake Country continue to be raised. Known as smart meters, the soon to be installed meters will replace the current analog meters and wirelessly transmit usage data to BC Hydro several times per day. When the subject was brought to District of Lake Country council last August, there was public opposition. This time, former Lake Country mayor Rolly Hein is raising his objections.

Hein has multiple concerns about the installation of smart meters. His four main issues are personal consent to the change, radio frequency energy contamination and two types of privacy issues—the possibility of the devices being hacked or tampered with by malicious people and BC Hydro using smart meter data for unfair billing. In a written statement Hein asserts: “The power company has no delegated authority from the people to install a security risking, privacy invading, health threatening, hackable, unfair billing, or wide power grid security threatening device

for the meters to be replaced. He says the installation of new technology goes against the

original service agreement he signed with BC Hydro. “They have no authority to change the agreement,” says Hein. BC Hydro’s Cindy Verschoor is the manager of communications for the BC Hydro Smart Metering Program. Verschoor explains that BC Hydro currently exchanges 45,000 meters per year in the province. “The agreement provides access to read, maintain and exchange meters,” says Verschoor. Electricity is to be supplied “safely and reliably” as Verschoor explains the right to entry for BC Hydro is covered under three separate pieces of legislation

in British Columbia— the Federal Electricity and Gas Inspection Act for all utilities, the Hydro and Power Authority Act and the Electric Tariff Act. Right now if a customer does not want a new smart meter installed, Verschoor explains that customer can call BC Hydro, have their file flagged and BC Hydro will hold off on the exchange until the utility has had the chance to talk to the customer. “We’ve had over 1,800 people initially refuse then accept the smart meter,” she says.

Hein voices objections

Beasley Park gets funding BOBBI-SUE MENARD Beasley Park Soccer Field received a big boost from the provincial government over the weekend. All the local politicians were on hand to herald the arrival of $400,000 to upgrade the Community Centre at Beasley and add new lighting to the fields. Up to 21,500 people use Beasley Park and the community centre each year. The community centre was originally built with public donations and volunteer time and after years of heavy use it is due for an upgrade. The renovation of

the centre will see a new multi-use deck of approximately 1,840 square feet, new wood floors, fitness system mounting, a toilet room, upgraded interior lighting, relocated sound system and renovated showers and washroom facilities. The upgrades will be enjoyed by a wide cross section of people from the community, said Lake Country Mayor James Baker. “At the club house there are weddings, parties, and gatherings by social groups. We rent out the facility because it has a kitchen, it generates revenue,� Baker said. The night lights for the soccer pitches will

be welcomed by sports teams from around the region. The province views the upgraded lights as a prudent investment in extending usage, rather than the much higher cost constructing of new facilities. “Both the upgraded community centre and soccer fields will be put to great use,� said Kelowna-Lake Country MLA Norm Letnick. “I know groups like the Lake Country Youth Soccer Association will be pleased with the project. Bigger isn’t always better, but Beasley Park is about to be both.� The provincial portion of the money is from a pool of $30 million in

quested from the provincial. In addition, the district is spending $100,000 from its own general revenue on the project. “The money is worth it as we got 20 cent dollars for our con-

tribution,â€? said Baker. “Plus the project is a big fit in our recreation plans for the district‌it is important to have opportunities for recreation for everyone in Lake Country.â€?

Biologist claims fish act about to be gutted JUDIE STEEVES Amendments to the federal Fisheries Act that would essentially remove protection of fish habitat from the legislation are secretly to be proposed for consideration within weeks, according to a former federal fisheries officer who was leaked the information. Otto Langer says the changes to Section 35(1) of the act would only call prevention of habitat damage that would adversely impact “fish of economic, cultural or ecological value.� Yet he points out that all fish and their habitat are part of a food chain, with wide-ranging impacts to birds and wildlife as well, when fish

habitat is damaged. However, KelownaLake Country MP Ron Cannan, contacted in Ottawa last week, said he has heard many concerns about the current fisheries policy. “It goes beyond what is needed to protect fish habitat,� he said. However, Cannan said the leaked document is nothing but prebudget speculation, and it is the first he’s heard about the proposed changes. “I know fisheries policies are being reviewed,� he admitted. He pointed to difficulties in planning to rebuild the Okanagan Safe Harbour in Lake Country because of onerous fish habitat require-

ments. Langer says he was involved in achieving protection for fish habitat in the act, as it was amended in 1975, and the changes proposed today would gut it. “We’d be stepping back in time,� he said. The amended section would represent a significant loss, he noted. “It’s hard to believe this is happening in Canada,� he added. The altered language waters down the legislation and would make it impossible to successfully prosecute those who destroy fish habitat, he said. Already, he noted, in the past few years federal fisheries staff in B.C. have been cut in half and

there are far fewer convictions for contraven-

tions. In the past decade he has received a number of provincial and federal awards for his conservation work, and Langer is the author of Stain Upon the Sea, dedicated to exposing the salmon farm industry in B.C. Langer has been interviewed by newspapers across Canada and the U.S. about the leaked information since he sent it out earlier this week. One of those who read about it was Rick Simpson of Kelowna, co-chair of the fisheries committee of the Okanagan Region of the B.C. Wildlife Federation. Simpson says there is passionate opposition to such chan-

ges. “This would give industry carte blanche,� he commented. It’s especially of concern when millions are being spent to rehabilitate damaged fish habitat, such as along the Okanagan River, and even more is being spent to try and re-establish the sockeye populations up the Columbia and Okanagan Rivers to Skaha and Okanagan Lakes, he pointed out. “I feel badly for my kids if this goes through,� Simpson said. “But, it will take more than a couple of newspaper articles to prevent it; they can do what they want.� Simpson was referring to the Conservative majority in Parliament.

Severe weather blamed for fatality on Highway 97 at Crystal Waters Rd. Last Friday, a 26-year-old woman from Vernon died from the injuries she suffered in a crash on Highway 97 North. On Thursday, March 15 at 3:15p.m., the Lake Country RCMP received a report of a serious singlevehicle collision on Highway 97 near Crystal Waters Road.

way in a brown Mazda pickup when a sudden, severe, heavy rainfall began. Apparently, the truck suddenly veered across oncoming lanes, hit a cement curb and then launched into the air. The truck then hit a rock wall, collapsing the roof on the driver’s side. The woman, who was the only occupant in the

vehicle, suffered massive head injuries as a result of the collision and was taken to Kelowna General Hospital, where she lay in critical condition until succumbing to her injuries. No one else was injured in the crash. The police are saying weather and road conditions are considered to be the main contributing factors in this crash.

Hein describes his experience with raising concerns about installation as “sending an email and then they ignore me because the questions are too hard.� As to questions about the safety, the meters are not CSA approved because the devices are not intended for personal household use. Instead, the meters are safety regulated by the British Columbia Electrical Safety Regulations; the American National Standards Institute; the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers and International Electrotechnical Commission. BC Hydro says a person would have to stand next to a meter for 20 years to accumulate the equivalent exposure to radio frequency emissions of a 20-minute cell phone call. As to privacy issues, BC Hydro insists the meters transmit only encrypted information and do not store that encrypted information. “They (the meters) monitor household activity and occupancy in violation of rights and domestic security,� Hein argues. Within the ebb and flow of daily electrical consumption are the details of modern life, and Hein’s argument is those details are beyond the purview of BC Hydro. Smart meters have the potential to introduce time of day billing and that doesn’t reflect the lives of B.C. residents, says Hein. “You use the same amount of electricity whether you do your laundry at three in the afternoon or three in the morning. The idea that BC Hydro should be able to charge you more for the same amount of electricity is wrong.�

▼ PHYSICAL THERAPY

There’s that darn pain in the neck B y far one of the most common injuries that I treat in our clinic is a stiff and painful neck. Many of us know the feeling when you are driving and it is difficult just to shoulder check because your neck just doesn’t seem to want to turn far enough. Neck pain often sneaks up on us, starting without any actual injury and slowly worsening over months. At first neck pain is often only sore occasionally, like when you first wake up in the morning, or maybe after you sit at the computer typing out emails for an hour or two. Then, slowly, it becomes more of a constant ache, and then the ache starts to worsen and at times becomes a sharp pain. Before you know it you are taking pain medication on a daily basis so you can get through your busy day. To understand why

this pain occurs, we need to know some basic anatomy of the spine. The neck is made up of seven bones called vertebrae. These vertebrae are stacked on top of one another and when naming them you start at the top of the neck (at the base of the skull) which is ‘C1’ and it counts down to the bottom of the neck which is ‘C7’. Because of how the spine is shaped the majority of the problems in the spine happen at C4, C5 and C6. This is the area in the neck that takes the most amount of strain from everyday activities, like when you have to spend hours driving or if you spend a lot of time sitting at a computer with poor posture. After a certain age everyone will have some amount of arthritis in their neck. Mild arthritis is a normal age-related process that occurs over many

Graham Gillies

Keeping You Fit years. Arthritis is the process of a ‘wearing out’ of the bones and discs that lie between each bone. As we age the discs dry up and the bones are forced to take more and more strain. This causes a thickening of the bone and sometimes can cause bone spurs and/or a narrowing of the space between each bone where the nerves exit the spine. The majority of people have only mild to moderate arthritis in their neck, and for the most part it isn’t enough to actually cause neck

pain. If it was, as soon as we reached 50 years of age or so we would all have constant neck pain. Of course this is not the case, but then if it isn’t arthritis, what is the cause of us not being able to shoulder check while we drive? More often than not the pain in our neck is caused by muscles becoming tight and sore as well as the joints getting stiff. Muscle tightening and joint stiffness limits neck movement and begins to cause aching pain. Nerves in the neck can also become irritated from all of the neck tightness, leading to more pain. So how do we get rid of the pain? The key to getting rid of neck pain is to loosen the muscles and the joints so that the neck can move normally again. This can be done by manual hands-on treatment techniques in

the clinic as well as by specific stretching exercises for home. Remember, the best treatment is always prevention. Make sure to sit and stand ‘tall’ throughout the day. Avoid spending hours and hours sitting at your computer or driving without taking a few breaks to stretch out along the way. Summer is on its way and you want to be able to get outside and enjoy it without thinking about that darn pain in the neck!

gious institution or not. God and the truth should not be blamed for any institution that promotes wars and destruction. God and truth are our only hope for peace and harmony whether that peace can be achieved on the ground or in the heart. God and the truth are no respecter of persons, they are the great equalizer of all humanity. God and the truth are available to all. Religion has no monopoly on God and truth. Religious institutions such as churches, synagogues and mosques have no monopoly on God and truth. God alone has the monopoly on God and truth. If the sign on religious buildings should read: “Abandon All Hope Ye Who Enter Here” then it can be argued that such a sign should hang over the doors of many buildings including businesses, schools and homes. There are many re-

pring should be here. In the garden, rhubarb thrusts up through last year’s rotting leaves. The first crocuses flash their white, mauve and yellow exclamations at the sky. But what’s coming down from the sky as I write this is not spring. Neither snow, nor rain— more like dollops of slush. At times like this, I tend to seek comfort from the wise ones who have preceded me. By chance, I turn to futurist Harding Vowles’s selfpublished booklet on the invisible icons that shape our society. By chance, I open to page 61, and read: “How dependent we are on the support of the community around us is not very apparent to us, as long as we stay within the community of consensus and the community is supportive of us.” Like temple bells of Thailand, which make a hollow clunk when struck in the open air but which resonate deeply within the temple itself, Harding’s insight resonates within my experience. Now and then,

ligious buildings which claim to have no religious affiliation or belief in God, yet by nature of their inhabitants’ quest for peace, require a greater commitment to rigid religious disciplines and a stronger faith in themselves or mysterious forces outside of themselves, than those who happen to attend religious buildings. All things considered, we all need to look in the mirror and take responsibility for the damage we have done to hope, but let’s be easy on God and the truth. Religion aside, there ought to be a sign over our heart that says “Hope has Entered Here” and it came through my belief in and relationship with God and the Truth. With God and the truth leading the way, hope will regenerate religious buildings, warmongering countries, divided communities, abusive institutions and even cynical people. Rev. Lance Duncalfe, Winfield Community Church

Life and Faith

Jim Taylor all of us have found ourselves outside that “community of consensus.” Certainly I have. We thought we belonged; to our surprise, we discovered we didn’t. Somehow, we found ourselves outside, looking in, wondering what happened. I remember seeing a cartoon once, of proud parents watching a mil-

itary march past. “Oh, look,” gushed the mom. “The whole army’s out of step but our John!” It’s an uncomfortable experience, being out of step. Being right doesn’t keep anyone warm on a frosty night. “For most of us,” Harding continues, “the sturdiness of our inner personal icon is related to the positive assurances we receive from others. If we review our daily activities and interactions, we soon recognize how heavily we rely on the positive feedback we get from relatives, friends, fellow workers, the public, even from bosses. “The flip side of this is noticing how severely our self-image is shaken up if these suddenly become non-supportive or hostile.”

Every immigrant will understand Harding’s image. Instead of a familiar environment where you know how your contemporaries think and react—even if you disagree with them—suddenly you struggle with new language, new values, new patterns of thinking. “How can we sing the Lord’s song in a strange land?” asks Psalm 137. Should exiles play Thai temple bells in a society devoted to heavy metal? Should expatriates speak English among people who understand only Swahili? Is it worth achieving Grade 8 piano if your contemporaries are content listening to iPods? You don’t have to be an exile to under-

stand the psalm’s lament. It happens even if you merely move to a new neighbourhood. And although we don’t often recognize it, it happens when your faith evolves too. How does one sing of cosmic holiness in a society that seems unable— or unwilling—to imagine anything beyond a private and personal God? As I ponder that question, I glance out the window again. The sun has come out. Buds are swelling on the forsythia. Spring is almost here, after all. A new consensus beckons the lonely ones. Jim Taylor is an Okanagan Centre author. rewrite@shaw.ca

Paragliders fly on despite adversity The Flight4Life project has passed what team leader Mark Jennings-Bates believes was the most critical part of the trip. Jennings-Bates, from Peachland, sent that hopeful message from Western Australia last week, as he and adventure expedition partner parajet pilot Glenn Derouin, of Vernon, were about to head through the Nullarbor desert of Western Australia. “Perhaps we are witnessing global climate challenges as we endure the strange weather patterns on this flight,” Jennings-Bates said, as the Nullarbor has recently recorded its hottest temperatures in history.

“Regardless of the weather, I believe we are past the crux of the trip. We have figured out some maintenance routines that are assisting us, battled through changeable winds and record rain storms and arrived at a point where the whole team believes we can see this through to the end.” Derouin has been flying the parajet solo since Jennings-Bates endured a prop strike that curtailed his personal world record attempt. For Derouin, the rigours of daily flying in strong thermals are starting to take a toll. “It certainly is not easy, day after day to get in the air knowing that you are going to get kicked around by strong thermals and dust devils for three hours at a time” stated Derouin, who has been flying for up to seven hours per day. The ground crew have also played a critical role in getting the team this far as they have endured road side repairs in searing heat and kept the Parajet motors and expedition vehicle in good shape for the outback adventures. Budd Stanley, of Kelowna, and Craig Greenwell, of Perth, Australia, both volunteered to help get the pilots safely to their destination.

For Jennings-Bates, the end is in sight, but he does not discount the many challenges that lie ahead. “The heat in the Nullarbor is going to be different to what we have experienced already and the winds, while they historically blow in our favour will blow stronger and that means that Glenn will have even more active flying to do. “With a little good fortune we will get to the end, I know that many people are cheering for us.” The purpose behind the Flight4Life, however, is more than to acquire a new world record.

Some of the new classes available this spring include; Women’s Fit 4 Defense, Zumba, Ballroom Singles class (line dancing), Hug a Tree and Survive class, and many new gardening classes designed for spring.

FUNDING FOR STUDENTS, NOT FOR WAGE HIKES. The BCTF is demanding a 15 per cent wage hike and other benefits that would cost $2 billion and raise taxes for BC families. Virtually all other public sector unions have settled for no wage increases. It’s unacceptable that schools are disrupted and that students and their families are inconvenienced over an unreasonable salary demand in difficult economic times. The union is making claims and demands that simply don’t add up.

BCTF CLAIMS AND DEMANDS

FACT

The union wants more paid time outside the classroom – sick leave for teachers on call, expanded bereavement and discretionary leave.

The government wants more time for teacher training and to ensure that Pro-D days really are for professional development.

The union says all teaching positions should be selected on the basis of seniority.

The government supports seniority but qualifications must also count so that math teachers teach math, and science teachers teach science.

The union says that teachers who perform poorly in evaluations will be dismissed – ‘one strike and you’re out’.

The government wants to support teacher improvement through a standardized evaluation process.

The union says that government refuses to negotiate.

There has been over a year of negotiations and 78 full bargaining sessions.

The union says that class size limits have been eliminated.

Class size limits will remain in place on all grades across BC.

The union says that BC has 700 fewer special needs teachers.

2100 new teaching assistants have been hired since 2001. And, with a new $165 million Learning Improvement Fund, we will hire more.

It’s time to focus on what matters most in education – BC’s students. That’s why we are focused on per-student funding which is at an all time high, not on wage increases. We all want to do more to make BC’s education system even better. It’s the driving force behind BC’s Education Plan that teachers, parents and students are helping to shape. Teachers care about their students. Parents care about their children’s future.

news ▼ REGIONAL DISTRICT

Interim chief administrative officer appointed for CORD The Central Okanagan Regional District board has appointed Paul Macklem as interim chief administrative officer for the regional district. Macklem is a longtime finance department director for the City of Kelowna who is currently general manager of corporate services. Macklem will begin his one-year term with CORD starting April 16.

Paul Macklem

The decision comes in advance of the planned retirement of current chief administrative officer Harold Reay at the end of April. “Mr. Macklem has more than 25 years of local government experience,” said CORD board chairman Robert Hobson. “The combination of Mr. Macklem’s background in finance, senior management, strategic planning and his famil-

iarity with the regional district makes him the ideal candidate for this transitional role.” With Reay retiring after more than 30 years of service for the regional district, Hobson said the board felt it was timely to take stock of the regional district operation and the services provided across the region. This interim appointment will help in the recruitment for a permanent chief administrative

officer who will guide the organization in the future, Hobson said. Macklem will work closely with the RDCO board to determine how best to meet the future needs of the Central Okanagan, reporting directly to Hobson. The Regional District of Central Okanagan was created 45 years ago by the provincial government and is one of 29 regional districts in the province.

It provides regionwide services such as 911, dog control and regional parks in the electoral areas and member municipalities of Lake Country, Kelowna, Peachland and West Kelowna. It also provides a local government to the residents of the unincorporated Central Okanagan East and Central Okanagan West Electoral Areas.

▼ INVESTING

Don’t let emotions control how you make your investment choices

“The dominant determinant of long-term, reallife investment returns is the behaviour of the investor himself.” —Nick Murray, 2008 ow! That’s a pretty bold statement! After many years in the investment business,

I have to say that I agree with Nick Murray. We do live in a timing and selection culture, even though research repeatedly shows that unpredictable events and other variables mean that no one can forecast markets for an extended period of time.

When I refer to timing, I mean the decisions about when to be in and out of the markets, when to move among different market sectors. When I talk about selection, I refer to the decisions about which stocks, funds or managers will outperform.

I can truly say I have never met anyone who disagrees with me that we should buy low and sell high—at least until we are at the ‘lows’ or at the ‘highs.’ Then, because an investor can panic and get emotional, they want to do the exact opposite be-

ence that, on average, investors would much rather buy high and chase markets up or sell low and run for cover in down markets. Research shows that if investors are left to make their own decisions, they make choices that impair their returns, which reduces their ability to fund their long-term investment goals, such as retirement or their children’s education. A paper written for The Vanguard Group Inc. by Donanld Bennyhoff and Francis Kinniry (December, 2010) noted

Investment Insights

Rob Oleksyn that returns that investors receive may be very different from those of the funds that they invest in. For example, on average for the 10 years ended March 31, 2010, fund investors trailed a moderate policy allocation by 65 basis points per year. This means that the average investor destroyed 0.65 per cent of their return annually for a decade simply by not buying and holding the investment fund allocation. Investors can also be moved to act by fund advertisements that tout recent, but historical outperformance, as if they

somehow inherit those historical returns, despite disclaimers stating that past performance is “no guarantee of future results.” Historical studies of mutual fund cash flows show that, after protracted periods of relative out performance in one area of the market, sizeable cash flows tend to follow. That means if the bond markets have been outperforming, then that’s where investors put their money. My simple message is not to chase the markets because you will be buying those investments at higher prices or selling those markets at lower prices than you should. You need to buy low and sell high and there are simple, uncomplicated ways of doing that which I will get into in future columns.

John Carter’s best feature is his loin cloth Creekside Players cancel production A

nd so it was with unnerving predictability that I was first in line at the theatre for John Carter, the movie. I’m a big fan of Dune, Star Wars, Indiana Jones, but likely the real reason I was there was for the 2 1/2 hours that Taylor Kitsch ( John Carter) is jumping around Mars wearing a loin cloth— heady stuff. Kitsch was born right here in Kelowna in 1981 and now lives in Vancouver. We have seen him in X-Men and Friday Night Lights. Good thing all I went for was the scenery because that’s about all I got—the acting sucked! But what are you really able to do when, in 1868 Carter finds an amulet on earth which somehow catapults him through space and time to Barsoom (Mars to us), and then, because he can defy gravity on Barsoom (a big hit with the locals), his value as a fighter goes way up. Of course there’s a beautiful woman, Lynn Collins (Dejah Thoris) who has been in such films as The Lake House

The Creekside Players’ performance of Steel Magnolias, schedule for March 23 to 31, has had to be cancelled. The circumstances were beyond the control of the Creekside Theatre which is sorry for any inconvenience. Ticket holders may contact Creekside Theatre for a reimbursement for tickets purchased.

Behind the Screen and X-Men. Well. I ask you, what interplanetary tale doesn’t have a beautiful woman so of course there is danger, angst, four armed creatures and really mad monsters—and that’s just the love scenes. I’m just kidding: John Carter has no time for that, he is so valued that everyone either wants him to fight for them or wants him dead, so the guy is really busy. Maybe a best line (hard to tell really): “You are ugly, but you are truly beautiful,� said to Carter by the four-armed guy after seeing Carter jump tall space ships. See what I mean, this pretty well sums up the acting here. So Carter’s mission is to save the Martian

KELOWNA born actor Taylor Kitsch looks good in the lead role as John Carter. Princess (oh yeah, she’s a princess) from marrying the evil guy threatening to take over Helium (a city on Barsoom). He turns his back on Earth and leaves his earthly belongings, estate and big bucks to his nephew Edgar Rice Burroughs (he’s only 10 in this show) but as an adult went on to write Dejah Thoris, Martian Princess. Later renamed Under the Moons of Mars, Tarzan of the Apes, and the Land that Time Forgot, to name a few, Carter flits back to Mars and ultimate-

ly everyone gets something‌we’re just not quite sure what. The rest of the cast includes the likes of Willem Dafoe (Tars Tarkas), Thomas Haden Church (Tal Hajus), Bryan Cranston (Powell) and Daryl Sabara (the young Edgar Rice Burroughs) just to name a few. In its first weekend, director Andrew Stanton’s John Carter made $30.5 million, which may sound like a lot to you and me but is less than half of the $80 million that Avatar brought in the first weekend.

So, in the movie biz, if this movie costs $250 million to make, and it did, they have a long way to go to break even. Little factoid: The most expensive movie ever made to date? Not Titanic, but Pirates of the Caribbean (at Worlds End) 2007 which cost $300 million and has made $963 million world-wide Two reels (just for the loin cloth—and the Martian dog).

â–ź LIVING WELL HEALTH TIPS

Breakfast fuels the brain to set up a healthy day

ROSE SONEFF

Does the thought of making and eating breakfast make you groan? One third of Canadian adults do not eat breakfast regularly— even though it’s simple to make and good to eat. Establishing a breakfast routine early is important for both children and adults. Adults who eat breakfast function better throughout the day. Research shows that breakfast kick-starts the brain and body. Studies of adults who do physical labor have found that those who skip breakfast often tire more quickly than their breakfast eating co-workers. There is also evidence that eating breakfast may play an important role in getting you to work safely in the morning; drivers who eat breakfast were

found to be more attentive and responsive during their morning commutes. Eating breakfast can also help you maintain a healthy weight by warding off temptation to eat snacks that are less nutritious and by preventing over eating. Because breakfast-skippers tend to eat more in the evening, they often exceed the amount of calories needed in a day and end up gaining weight. Breakfast is especially important for the growing brains of children and teens. Research has shown that important nutrients missed when breakfast is skipped are not adequately provided throughout the rest of the day. Children who do not eat breakfast often fail to meet recommended levels of vitamins A, B6, and D, calcium, magnesium, riboflavin, fol-

ic acid, zinc, phosphorus and iron. Many of these nutrients play a key role in brain development. Evidence shows children and teens who eat breakfast are often better at understanding ideas and solving problems— essential skills for succeeding at school. Think there isn’t enough time in the morning to make breakfast? If you are short on time in the mornings try preparing items such as porridge the night before then simply reheat in the morning. Looking for something that you can just grab and go? Fruit, cheese, crackers, peanut butter and bagels make quick, inexpensive portable breakfasts. Health Canada recommends children and adults enjoy breakfast every day. When adults eat breakfast, children will

too. So be a good role model and eat your brekkie!

Romance of the Alaskan arctic JOHN BORDSEN CONTRIBUTOR

Florian Schulz, 36, is from an area near the Alps in southern Germany, but his passion as a photographer and explorer is the top of the world. He is the author of To the Arctic, published by Mountaineers

Books. It is a companion hardcover to a new IMAX documentary of the same name. Q: Where all have you been in the Arctic? A: From the northwest tip of Alaska to northern Europe. In the past seven years I’ve been in Alaska, Canada, Greenland and the Sval-

bard Archipelago. Q: Why there? A: There’s space for exploration—you can discover and document the true wilderness. Mankind hasn’t spoiled it yet, and that was a special attraction. There’s also the challenge: I’ve had to organize entire expeditions

Q A

As we walk our dogs through local wilderness areas this spring and summer, what things should we keep in mind?

We are very lucky to live in a beautiful area where there are plenty of opportunities to hike through wooded areas. While this is a great way to keep your dogs in shape there are a few things to keep in mind to help keep them safe and healthy. Many dogs are curious of wildlife such as birds, squirrels and deer and may get too close. Although deer are generally fearful creatures, a mother doe with a fawn nearby can be very aggressive when approached by a conceived threat. She may charge and strike or trample a dog which can cause very serious injuries or even death. If you and your dog come across a deer that appears to be defensive, do not approach her and leave a generous distance as you pass. Also, be sure to check your dog’s coat frequently after walks for ticks, burrs and grass awns. Ticks are picked up in the long grass and can transmit infectious disease or cause paralysis. Grass awns (spear grass) have a nasty way of getting into your dogs ears, eyes, in between the toes and just about anywhere else you can imagine. Your dog may suddenly have a very sore ear, paw or eye and will need veterinary care.

All about diabetes

A

Diabetes is a condition where people don’t produce enough insulin, and/or their cells don’t respond properly to insulin. Insulin is an important hormone produced by the pancreas that moves glucose, a type of sugar, into the body’s cells from the blood. Once inside the body’s cells, glucose is used as a source of energy. If insulin isn’t available or doesn’t work correctly to move glucose from the blood into cells, glucose will stay in the blood. Blood sugar levels will then increase.

Type 2 diabetes is very closely linked to body weight and obesity. Gestational diabetes is a temporary type of diabetes that is ďŹ rst diagnosed during pregnancy. Studies have shown that keeping blood sugar levels as close to the normal range as possible can help prevent the long-term health problems associated with diabetes, such as nerve damage, kidney disease, and blindness. Whichever type of diabetes you have, you’ll need to measure your blood sugar frequently and follow a treatment plan to keep your blood sugar under control. Your doctor and IDA pharmacist can show you how to monitor blood sugar levels.

Square dancers start with a Spring Fling BRIAN ELMER There’s possibly no other activity where people can socialize to the extent they can in the very social recreation of today’s square and round dancing. Its essence is interactivity. Its code is friendship. They did just that on March 10 at the Winfield Memorial Hall when dancers from throughout the Okanagan Valley converged on Lake Country for the 2012 Spring Fling. The annual event is the largest dance held by the non-profit Okanagan Square and Round Dance Association. Amid springtime decorations in the hall, the fling opened in the afternoon with a smaller dance attracting about 35 who are accomplished at the Plus Pro-

gram of square dancing with some round dancing interspersed. The featured talent was a couple who are both the square dance caller and round dance cuer, Dave and Sharon Boggs from Moses Lake, Wash. That Saturday evening, about 60 dancers from points between Osoyoos and Salmon Arm enjoyed the Blossom Ball, a three-hour program with a halfhour of just round dancing. A Mainstream square dance program began at 8 p.m., alternating with round dancing. Round dancing is choreographed ballroom dancing conducted to live cues over the microphone. It includes all the familiar rhythms such as waltz, two-step, rumba and cha-cha. Dave, the guest caller with 13 years experi-

Dave Boggs ence, put the square dancers through their paces with some interesting routines. He even conducted a quick-teach of a choreographed call known as the Grand Colonel Spin. After a little rehearsing, the whole floor of dancers rejoiced to correctly executing

the call. The round dancers were very pleased with the wide selection of dances presented by Sharon with varied choices in music. She’s been cueing for six years. Rosalyn Garnett, from West Kelowna, enthusiastically danced to the lilting Spinning Wheel Waltz, a round dance that she exclaimed is her “very favourite!� Snack foods and hot drinks closed the evening whereupon the dancers agreed it had been a most enjoyable day. Today’s style of square dancing has been standardized worldwide in the English language. Various levels of challenge are available, grouped into programs. The dancer chooses a program according to their comfort level and time available to learn.

BUILDING THIS SUMMER?

EASTER EGG HUNT IS COMING SOON!

If you’re thinking of building this summer be sure to stop by the Development Services Department to discuss requirements for building approvals. A quick visit now will make sure you’re ready to go in the summer!

MARK YOUR CALENDARS!

LOAD RESTRICTIONS Effective 12:01 a.m. March 8, 2011, load restrictions will be in effect for Beaver Lake Road. Loads will be restricted to 70% axle weight. This restriction applies from the Lake Country boundary to the second cattle guard. For more information contact the Engineering department at (250) 766-6677 or engineering@lakecountry.bc.ca.

ROAD SWEEPING UNDERWAY The annual road sweeping program has begun. Over the next few weeks, crews will be working diligently to remove winter gravel from all Lake Country roads. For more information, please contact Engineering at (250) 766-6677 or engineering@lakecountry.bc.ca.

SPION KOP WILDFIRE MITIGATION PROJECT In September 2011 the District was the recipient of a UBCM Community Wildlife Mitigation Grant in the amount of $166,668. The grant will be used to reduce fuel load in areas on Spion Kop Mountain that have been hit hardest by Mountain Pine Beetle (MPB) and will also help reduce other fuel types in the area. The grant represents 83% funding of the approximately $200,000 project. The District, in partnership with the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resources Operations worked towards having the project completed by the end of April 2012 and while the work plan is now complete, it will not be possible to tender the project and complete the work in the short window before the first day of the Ministry’s fire season, April 1st.

Egg Hunt @ Jack Seaton Park (on Camp Road) Good Friday, April 6 Sign up at 11:00 a.m. Hunt Begins at Noon All Kids 1-12 years Welcome (including all grade 7’s)

Family Entertainer ~ James Johnson Performs 11:15 – 12:00 A great show for all ages, arrive early so you don’t miss it!

Enjoy Lunch at the Park…Lake Country Lions Club will be selling BBQ Hotdogs. All proceeds to local Lion’s Charities.

Egg Hunt is a FREE event sponsored by Lake Country Parks & Rec t 250 766 1485

The project will be postponed until the fall of 2012 when safe work conditions will allow the project to start and be completed at one time. In addition to MPB, Douglas Fir Beetle is widespread in the Spion Kop area and the beetle prefers dead and dying timber. To prevent the spread of this particular pest the District needs to ensure that all Douglas fir that is felled is destroyed immediately so as not to perpetuate a forest health condition. We encourage all residents and visitors to be vigilant when hiking and using the Spion Kop area in the coming months as dry conditions will likely be high and fuel loads remain heavy.
