Further study for Kelowna Mt. project Wade Paterson STAFF REPORTER

Last week, the Central Okanagan Regional District board gave first reading to a new Official Community Plan bylaw for the South Slopes neighbourhoods of the Central Okanagan east electoral area. The OCP is the first for the area, which includes the electoral area outside the City of Kelowna boundary between June Springs Estates and the south portion of Lakeshore Road. In the draft bylaw, the property of Kelowna Mountain is identified as a resort study area. A secondary planning process is required prior to consideration of any future change in land use. The Kelowna Mountain project—a dream of developer Mark Consiglio, who owns a 259 hectare property just south of Kelowna—is proposed to include a ski hill, mountain bike park, skating pond, championship golf course, suspension bridges, commercial village, resort and residential accommodations, winery and a community theatre. The current land use of Kelowna Mountain is designated rural resource. Ron Fralick, manager of current planning for the regional district, said that the OCP is still in the early stages of development. “We’ve only had first reading on the OCP bylaw— we are going to public hearing next month, so there could be further change. Nothing is in stone yet,” said Fralick. “Until we get past that public hearing a number of things could happen.” The public hearing is tentatively set for May 14; however, a location for the hearing has not yet been determined. As the draft bylaw states, the planning process is to be clearly outlined in a terms of reference. A series of professional reports and studies will be required to properly assess the proposed Kelowna Mountain development. “The City of Kelowna is going to be part of developing those terms of reference because the developSee Study A13

Report of grizzly bear seems unlikely Judie Steeves STAFF REPORTER

Grizzly bear sightings are rare in the Okanagan Valley—even more so at this time of year, when their higher-elevation hibernation dens are still blocked by snow. However, it’s not im-

possible that a Friday afternoon complaint to the RCMP about a grizzly bear being sighted in Knox Mountain Park was actually a grizzly, say conservation officers. It just isn’t that likely, says Sgt. Josh Lockwood, with the CO service. “In the brown phase,

a black bear can look a bit like a grizzly bear,” said Lockwood, but he was unable to get adequate information because the person who complained didn’t leave a name and phone number so they could contact him to ask more questions. Photos, even from a

cell phone, are a real asset to identifying wildlife, he noted. There was only the one sighting and even the park caretaker hasn’t seen either a grizzly or a bear. Some years ago, there used to be lots of bear sign in the park, noted Mark Goddard, who lives on Knox Mountain as the

park caretaker. On the other hand, Lockwood notes, it is a wild area so people should expect to see wildlife in the park, including does with fawns, and deer can be very protective of their young.

Students study groundwater entering Okanagan Lake Judie Steeves STAFF REPORTER

There are more sources of water than are visible to the eye, but people tend to ignore those they can’t see—unless they run short of water. So, a small group of UBCO students is looking at the groundwater discharges to Okanagan Lake. Under the direction of earth and environmental sciences professor Craig Nichol, the students are, “standing in the lake and looking at what’s coming at us from groundwater sources,” he explains. Using specialized monitoring equipment along the Kelowna shoreline, they are taking measurements to determine what is seeping into the lake from underneath the city of Kelowna, between Knox Mountain and just north of Okanagan Mountain Park, he says. It will become part of the comprehensive Okanagan Water Supply and Demand Study, with this project funded by the Okanagan Basin Water Board. It’s easy to see surface water entering the lake from streams, but underground sources of water are trickier to detect. It’s a master’s study for one of his graduate students, Nicole Pyett, who will continue the monitoring over the next year, but this year an undergrad, Jordan White, has been working on the project. That has involved using seepage meters to measure the amount of water com-

ing in to the lake through the ground. The meters are a sealed system that’s driven into the sediments, then the amount of water that accumulates in the bag from the ground under the lake, is measured. He is also using data loggers to measure the temperature variations between the surface and the sediment layers and noting where there are anomalies in the pattern, indicating an upwelling of water entering the lake. There’s seepage throughout the lake from groundwater flows, and such sources are not always accounted for because they’re not visible, he explains. By doing these measurements, gaps in the basin’s water supply and demand data can be filled in, and existing data checked. White says he was raised in Kelowna and “I’ve been through water shortages, so it’s important to me that we learn more about the resource,” he said, adding, “We use a lot of water per person here.” Although this information is being gathered about quantity of water going into the lake from groundwater sources, once the location of those sources within the lake is known, it could be put to different uses, including studying the quality or contents of those inflows. The data gathered will be added to the information in the water supply and demand study for use in modelling.


JORDAN WHITE, a student of UBC Okanagan, is part of a group working on a groundwater discharge research project for Okanagan Lake.


Okanagan teachers book out of extracurricular activities Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

Parents are welcome to step in and take over any of the teachers’ duties that would normally occur after the three o’clock bell, but teachers themselves will not be delivering extracurricular services from this point forward, the Central Okanagan Teachers’ Association confirms. Following a provincewide vote last week on whether to suspend participation in extracurricu-

lar activities, Central Okanagan teachers began stepping away from the leadership roles they fill on sports teams, music programs, graduation activities and field trips this week, stripping their jobs of the tasks viewed as voluntary. The measure is a lastditch effort to protest Bill 22, which legislated teachers back to work and brought in stiff fines for any attempt to strike in their ongoing contract dispute with the provincial government.

Alice Rees “Teachers, since September, have been trying to get a deal at the bargaining table,” said Alice Rees, COTA president.

“But Bill 22 is the most pointed and regressive piece of legislation ever levelled.” She went on to say the legislation is an odious attempt to strip teachers of their rights and one which should be unfathomable within a democratic country. “It’s beyond belief what they have done to teachers,” she said. “I just spoke with a coach who was close to tears over the lack of respect.” Teachers don’t do their jobs, or any of the volun-

tary extracurricular positions they hold, because they’re counting pennies, Rees noted, saying they work because they are passionate about helping kids. The withdrawal of services is intended to showcase how much work teachers do over and above the school day, and the main arena to suffer is expected to be school sports. Hugh Gloster, Central Okanagan School District superintendent, says he’s anticipating some sports

teams may fold under the weight of the service withdrawal, despite the fact organizations like B.C. School Sports have committed to running provincial tournaments. While 58 per cent of the coaches in the province are teachers, Gloster said he expects the figure may be even higher in the Okanagan, leaving him unsure if enough community members and volunteers could be found as replacements. With rugby, girls’ soccer, golf and track and

field all to play this spring, it means a significant workforce of skilled recruits on a tight timeline. Meanwhile, word of field trip cancellations and how various concerts and theatre programs will handle the situation had yet to surface. Gloster said he anticipates most graduation events would not be hurt as the activities largely fall to parents as is, although he expects teachers are not likely to be on stage handing out scholarships come commencement ceremony time.

Kelowna babies participate in attempt at new world record Wade Paterson STAFF REPORTER

diapers. “It’s a worldwide event at 300 locations in 16 different countries,” said Michelle Muhlbach, owner and operator of Tidy Tushees Diaper Service. “Last year was the first year and worldwide just over 5,000 babies’ diapers were changed. We’re looking at breaking that record this year.” According to Muhlbach, the purpose of the Great Cloth Diaper Change was to raise awareness of cloth diapering benefits. “Everybody here is passionate about cloth diapering, the environment, health benefits and the economics behind it. It motivates them to get out and be counted.” A total of 44 babies’ cloth diapers were changed at 9:30 a.m. at the Laurel Packinghouse. Muhlbach said that the turnout was very similar

to last year. “We weren’t sure what to expect; we had about 50 last year. We needed 25 babies to qualify for our event and we’re well over that, which is fantastic.” Muhlbach said that Guinness’ rules for the world record attempt are “very regimented.” “Babies have to be under 39 inches tall in order to qualify; they have to be changed into a cloth diaper that is commercially available; they have to be changed at exactly 9:30 a.m. PST.,” she said. “We also have to have two witnesses, one with community standing and one (has to be) a cloth diaper expert.” Along with the Great Cloth Diaper Change, an eco-baby fair, featuring 20 green and baby-oriented businesses, was also set up in Laurel Packinghouse. wpaterson@kelownacapnews. com

Although she smashed through the calm of the day, she didn’t damage business too badly. “They had the mess cleaned up within two hours and then once the area was boarded up, we were good to go,” said store administrator Andrea Cashol. “It will take a couple weeks for the windows to be put in, but we are functioning as normal.”

Second Okanagan Lake bridge crossing not yet a dead issue


Kathy Michaels

Wade Paterson


A second crossing over Okanagan Lake may be more than just a pipedream. The topic came up during a Monday afternoon city council meeting, when director of regional services Ron Westlake explained Central Okanagan governments are going to take early steps to develop a partnership to address regional transportation issues. “Local governments can’t work on (these issues) in isolation,” he said. Mayor Walter Gray pointed out it’s not just buses they need to coordinate over, either. “This goes to active transportation, not just locally, but in the region,” said Mayor Walter Gray. “Will you have a second crossing of Lake Okanagan?” It would cost area residents in the area of a billion dollars, said Gray, but

it’s a topic that continually comes to the fore. Westlake said there are issues common to West Kelowna, Westbank First Nation and even Peachland, and in time they’ll form committees to look at the technical issues. “(That) will entail looking into a Highway 97 alternate corridor,” he said, adding that the main street in Westbank may also hit the agenda. Meantime, however, area transit continues to frustrate residents, who ranked it as the most important issue to them, in a recent citizen survey. Coun. Robert Hobson pointed out that it will take commitments from multiple local governments to work out those issues. “At the end of the day we either have to fish or cut bait,” he said. “At some point we’re going to have to agree to provide resources and… spend taxpayers’ money on doing what we want to do.”

Artists paint the downtown STAFF REPORTER

Barb Hillier’s head swiveled back and forth as she walked down Sunset Drive on Saturday. With a canvas in her hand and several bags draped over her arms, the Penticton artist seemed to be studying her surroundings. “I have to think about how the sun is going to move throughout the day because the shadows will change and the lighting will change,” said Hillier. “So I have to think right now more about composition and getting some value changes and then sticking with it.” Hillier, along with 44 others, were taking part in Opus’s Outdoor Painting Challenge last weekend. Aaron Metz, manager of Opus Kelowna, said that this is the first year the art supplies store has put on the event.

But due to the popularity of the challenge, Metz said he’s optimistic that the Outdoor Painting Challenge will become an annual occurrence. “We’re just trying to get people out in the community, painting. It’s spring and usually in the spring people start thinking about going away,” said Metz. “We’re trying to encourage everyone to be out where they’re from, because it’s so nice here.” The event, which ran from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., was free and open to all ages and skill levels. Metz said that even some children gave the contest a shot. “That’s why we worded it the ‘Outdoor Painting Challenge,’ instead of just plein air (a French expression for open air), which makes it sound kind of artist oriented. “It doesn’t matter what your skill level is, we just

wanted you to get out and try something. There were no rules on what to paint or draw; it’s all up to your interpretation.” Three Opus gift cards worth $500, $250 and $100, were given out for the top three paintings. Professional local artist Rod Charlesworth, Kelowna Art Gallery curator Liz Wylie and Lake Country Art Gallery curator Katie Brennan were judges for the event. The main rule of the challenge was that artists must work outside in a designated painting zone, which included most of Kelowna’s downtown. Contestants were also instructed to use the canvas provided by Opus and hand in their artwork no later than 3 p.m. Some seemed to be in a hurry to get an early start; however, Hillier was nonchalant as she searched for something to paint.

“At the plein air event I did in Ladner last summer, we had an hour and a half to produce a painting,” said Hillier. “When the whistle went off, I was sitting with paintbrush in hand. I was all set up and I needed that whole hour and a half. “Today we have until 3 p.m. so I’m going to take the time just to find a nice place to sit.” Hillier has been painting on and off for the past decade. “It’s quite relaxing; it’s very therapeutic. It helps with learning how to see things and interpret proper values and colours in nature. “Things are always changing, so it’s challenging. You can sit down and see something you want to paint—five minutes later, it has totally changed.”

Effective at noon on Tuesday, May 15, the size of open fires will be restricted in most of the Kamloops Fire Centre to help prevent humancaused wildfires and protect the public. Since April 1, Kamloops Fire Centre crews have responded to wildfire incidents covering more than 100 hectares. Many of these wildfires resulted from poorly planned open burning. This prohibition applies to all areas of the Kamloops Fire Centre— which includes the Central Okanagan—except for the Clearwater and Salmon Arm fire zones. Anyone conducting Category 2 or 3 fires outside of those two zones must extinguish such fires by noon on May 15. This prohibition will remain in effect until Oct. 15 or until further notice. A map of the affected areas is available online at: This prohibition does not ban campfires that are a half-metre high by a half-metre wide (or smaller) and does not apply to cooking stoves that use gas, propane or briquettes.

Cab driver badly hurt when smacked by Toyota Corolla A taxi driver suffered serious but non-life threatening injuries when his car was struck by a 1992 Toyota Corolla early Saturday morning. On April 21st, 2012 at 1:40 a.m., emergency crews were called to the scene of a two vehicle collision at Harvey and Richter. A 21-year-old Grand Forks man was driving a taxi cab and had apparently been making a left hand turn onto Harvey from Richter when a westbound Toyota Corolla entered the intersection and struck the cab on the driver’s side. The driver and one of the passengers of the Corolla fled the scene on foot. The Grand Forks man suffered serious but non-life threatening injuries in the crash and was taken to hospital by paramedics. Police continue to search for the suspected driver, a 23-year-old Kelowna man. Police believe alcohol to be a contributing factor SALE HOURS: Friday, April 27 9:00 am-9:00 pm

in the crash. The Kelowna man faces potential charges of failure to remain at the scene of an accident and dangerous operation of a motor vehicle causing bodily harm.

ROBBER SENTENCED A Kelowna bank robber has been sentenced after pleading guilty to related charges earlier this month. George Clifford Rodgers, 44, pleaded guilty April 12 to robbing the Credit Union on Bernard Avenue last September, and received a prision sentence of 5 1/2 years. “Rodgers was also ordered to provide a sample of his DNA and prohibited from owning firearms for life,” said Kelowna RCMP Const Kris Clark. Rodgers will be credited for the 217 days that he spent incarcerated prior to the sentencing. Rodgers robbed the bank by handing a teller a note with a money demand on it.

There was no weapon or threat of a weapon during the incident and the suspect left the bank with an undisclosed amount of cash.

HOT TUB RECOVERED An alleged cycle of crime surrounding a Lake Country house was broken last week when Mounties took on the herculean task of securing a 1,400 lb piece of evidence. According to Const. Kris Holmes, the Lake Country RCMP executed a search warrant April 20 on a residence on the 3200 block of Berry Road for a hot tub that was believed to have been stolen in November of last year. “From my understanding, it was stolen from a home that may have been a grow op,” said Clark. “We’d gone in and dealt with the grow op, and then it was taken.” Whoever took the $17,000 tub the first time around would have had to had some serious equipment on their side, as it took the Mounties a giant

Time for a Canuck playoff breather


he Capital News is not a card carrying member of the Vancouver Canucks bandwagon, but we are still disappointed to see the team’s playoff run come to a sudden halt. But we should not be surprised given the comments expressed earlier this season by Canuck coach Alain Vigneault, who said any team in the Western Conference could beat the other come playoff time, the reality of parity in the NHL today.

In the playoffs, where you finished in the regular season standings is not relevant. It becomes about matchups in a best of seven series, and the Canucks didn’t match up well against the L.A. Kings. But while there are a multitude of reasons why the Canucks won’t make another run for the Stanley Cup this season, perhaps at this point that isn’t really worthy of discussion. The sports scribes and TV talking heads will be all over

that topic anyway, but maybe we all just need a rest from Canuck mania for a while. Last year, the Canucks reached Game 7 of the Cup final, only to lose a heartbreaker to the Boston Bruins. The end result of that was the team this year was still emotionally spent after having less than a two-month break from starting all over again. As well, Vancouver was ransacked by mostly out-of-town fans who descended on the

city’s downtown core with yet another riot. And Canuck fans discovered the team may even be more disliked than the Toronto Maple Leafs across Canada, truly a frightful end result to the Canuckmania buildup of the last few years. The Stanley Cup is the hardest professional sports trophy to win, and that quest becomes even tougher when you reach the Cup final and lose. The Canucks have learned that the hard way this season.

Imagining an NDP government for British Columbia


DP victories in two byelections bring the standings in the legislature to 46 B.C. Liberals, 36 NDP and three independents, one of whom has pledged allegiance to the B.C. Conservatives. B.C. Conservative leader John Cummins put a brave face on his third-place finish in Port Moody-Coquitlam and Chilliwack-Hope. Even in bedrock conservative Fraser Valley farm country, in a protest byelection with a high-profile candidate, the B.C. Conservatives managed to attract just enough to deliver a landmark NDP seat. The NDP was helped by the absence of the B.C. Green Party on the

byelection ballots, with most of its five-per-cent support from 2009 presumably going to the winners. Cummins said his party’s goal going into the Port Moody-Coquitlam vote, with an unknown candidate and a handful of volunteers, was to break 10 per cent. They got 15 per cent and he declared a moral victory. Cummins rejected a possible merger with the “discredited” B.C. Liberals. Premier Christy Clark was equally emphatic that she will be the leader

the “free enterprise VICTORIA of coalition” in the 2013 VIEWS election. So the stage is set for an NDP majority government. What will that look like? Well, Port Tom Moody mayor-turnedFletcher MLA Joe Trasolini has a wealth of local government experience, so pencil him in as municipal affairs minister. A long-time supporter of the B.C. Liberals, Trasolini should clarify if he endorses the NDP constitution, which still opposes all profit-making activity. He’s not the only high-profile

newcomer likely to be included in an Adrian Dix cabinet. New NDP candidates from union executive ranks will likely include long-time Hospital Employees’ Union president Judy Darcy. She no longer talks about bringing a “Marxist analysis” to economic matters. Darcy is now best known for leading the long court battle against the B.C. Liberal government’s contract-breaking legislation of 2002. The eventual decision of the Supreme Court of Canada basically invented a constitutional right to collective bargaining. (The high court could also ponder if there might be a right not to belong to a union, but that’s an-

other story.) Then there’s George Heyman, the long-time B.C. Government Employees’ Union president. After leaving the BCGEU, Heyman has taken a turn as executive director of Sierra Club B.C., a branch plant of the U.S. enviro-machine that works against B.C. forest, mining, power and petroleum development. These folks would be working with Stephen Howard, who went from senior positions at the BCGEU and CUPE to his current role as Dix’s chief of staff. Dix, of course, benefited from the sudden ouster of Ca-

Harper weakened environmental laws put burden on provinces, muzzles opponents

To the editor: The Conservative government of Stephen Harper proposes to weaken Canada’s environmental laws in favour of the oil industry and put all Canadians at risk. Mr. Harper’s law changes are shortsighted and fail Canadians. Harpter’s laws remove feder-

al responsibility, funding and manpower from the industrial project review process and put the burden on the backs of the provinces. Harper’s laws also muzzle opponents and restrict public due diligence and environmental debate on these projects, which is both dangerous and undemocratic.

Federal and provincial governments have different constitutional requirements to protect natural resources, the environment and public health. All Canadians breathe the air, drink the water and own the land and resources that industry uses and impacts. Both governments use taxpayer’s

money to subsidize and lend money to industrial projects to ensure project success. Stronger— not weaker—legislation is needed to ensure resource protection. More—not less—government effort is needed to oversee industrial projects and to protect the health and wealth of all Canadians.

Each level of government must objectively review every industrial project—not just the big ones - to ensure that all social, economic, environmental and public health impacts are identified and mitigated without any net costs to their respective taxpayers. Richard Drinnan, Kelowna

Watching House of Commons Question Period on TV a great way to inspire interest in politics To the editor: Last week Bruce Anderson, senior associate with Harris/Decima, said on CBC’s The National that only about 30 per cent of the Canadian population pay attention to politics. According to Elections Canada, voter turnout in the May 2011 federal election was only 61.1 per cent of eligible voters. One way to become more familiar with the issues—rather than just catching sound bytes from MPs on the evening news, is to watch Question Period from the House of Commons in Ottawa. Although Question Period often raises a ruckus, it does give Canadians an opportunity to watch how each political party frames the issues.

Question Period begins on channel 112 at 11:15 a.m. Monday to Thursday, and 8:15 a.m. on Friday, while the House of Commons is sitting. The rebroadcast begins at 8 p.m. The House of Commons reconvened April 23, and I’m wondering if Prime Minister Harper will finally answer directly the question he was asked by interim Liberal leader Bob Rae on April 5: “When did the Prime Minister first become aware that the true cost of the aircraft proposed was $25 billion and not the $16 billion fiction that he has been presenting to the House of Commons for 21 long months?” Question Period is available as a podcast or video on-demand at (http://parlvu.parl. The video is also found at (www.cpac.

ca); from the menu, click on Programs and select Question Period. And if you are too busy to watch the entire proceedings, go to ( and type “debates” in the search box. Daily transcripts of Hansard, which includes Question Period, are provided. Mark Twain said: “The most interesting information comes from children, for they tell all they know and then stop.” But as its the MPs who make decisions that impact us all, we owe it to ourselves to become better informed, especially when considering the Conservatives formed a majority government with only 39.6 per cent of the vote. David Buckna, Kelowna

Fear of firearms causes police to over-react to toys To the editor: Our police appear so afraid that they are routinely busting kids with toy guns—four times in the last several months. And we’re told our police are short-staffed? Why the fear? Our police are well armed with body armor and deadly weapons. They are equipped with weapons that are designed to kill with a single shot. And police are trained with these weapons to become deadly shots. With very few exceptions, police have all the advantage.

It may be easier these days for the bad guys to get a gun, but without proper training the average bad guy couldn’t hit the broadside of a barn. Plus, gunplay is typically crook on crook that is long over before police arrive. Look at our gangland slaying event that, according to RCMP spokesperson Const. Kris Clark, has our police so fearful. A serious weapon was used, an entire clip was emptied, but only one gangster was killed. And the perps escaped across the entire

city before police realized what was happening. Police are in a deathdealing business. If they are so afraid of armed citizens, perhaps they should consider some psychological training in guncrazy USA. The more serious issue here is the violation of civil rights. Clark threatens our kids, saying don’t play with toy guns. Police “have to investigate as if they’re real firearms until they’re proven otherwise.” With SWAT teams and deadly assault rifles? Get real.

NDP would kowtow to unions Fletcher from A86 role James, who made the mistake of trying to loosen big labour’s grip on the NDP and modernize some of its quaint 1930s notions. Then we have B.C.’s third-largest political party, the B.C. Teachers’ Federation, which has already confirmed it will continue its long campaign to replace the B.C. Liberals with the NDP next year. Such a team brings

impressive experience, but unfortunately for taxpayers, much of that experience has been in extracting money from the public treasury. And if recent B.C. history is any guide, this fundamental conflict of interest will receive little or no media attention in the months to come. Instead, the conventional wisdom will be that voters want “change.” • Correction: Last week’s column referred to the 1971 Greenpeace

campaign against atmospheric nuclear testing. That protest boat was directed at a U.S. nuclear test off Alaska, not a Soviet test as stated. Subsequent Greenpeace protests targeted the Soviet slaughter of grey whales, and the last atmospheric nuclear tests, conducted by France in the South Pacific. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and

Excessive police enforcement creates a dangerous situation, with scores of loaded weapons and skittish police threatening innocent citizens just to seize toys. Police dictating toy choices definitely breaches our rights which specifically protect us from such arbitrary enforcement and excessive police force. Toy guns are toys, and not, as police self-justifiably identify them, “fake firearms.” Shame. The people who report kids goofing around should be charged for failing to note the obvious florescent orange markings clearly indicating these “firearms” as toys.

911 operators should routinely query if reported guns have orange markings. How can you confuse a clear plastic toy with orange markings as a real gun unless you are negligent and paranoid? And the city should reconsider their bylaw which justifies police going Rambo on toys. Police should just walk away when they realize toys are involved. Anything else is excessive fear-driven coercive force that violates our freedoms and excuses excessive police power—over children’s toys, no less. Gregory Teleglow, Kelowna

Break of a lifetime for single mom Ball diamond recipient of public art project A single mom struggling to make mortgage payments is looking at a whole new bottom line after winning $1.5 million on a Scratch & Win ticket. “It was just another Tuesday,” said Jacqueline Davenport, of Kelowna. “I was just running out to get french fries and decided to stop to purchase a Scratch & Win ticket.” She picked up her winning ticket at Knox Mountain Market in Kelowna. She spent $20 to purchase a $100,000 A Year For Life ticket. “I went home to eat and then I

scratched my ticket. I matched the gem and I knew I had won something, and when I realized it was the jackpot I came running out of my room. My daughter thought something was wrong and I had to reassure her everything was OK!” Davenport is a consultant with two children. She said she’s been working “seven days a week for over a year to make ends meet, but the ends were not meeting.” She had recently put her house up for sale. Now that her financial life looks a lot different, Davenport is not

making big plans yet to spend her winnings. She says she wants to “think about it for a couple of months.” “I always believed that one day I was going to win big,” she said. “It finally happened!” The $100,000 A Year For Life is the Scratch & Win ticket that offers players the chance to win a top prize of $100,000 every year for the rest of their life. Jackpot winners have the choice of receiving $100,000 a year for the rest of her life without limit or a lump-sum of $1.5 million.


Public art with a populist twist gained Kelowna city council’s support Monday afternoon. A proposal to use $7,500 from the public art fund to pay for a project aimed at sprucing up Rutland Minor Baseball Association’s diamond won unanimous council support Monday. The money will be used to commission a dugout mural created through community collaboration. A dozen area residents have already submitted proposals for the dugout and April 24 they’ll converge for a brainstorming session, where the best concept will be chosen. “Participants working in groups will review the art contest submissions and their media, including

archival photos,” council were told in a city staff report. “Supplies will be provided for participants to draw, and as images develop and the discussion becomes more focused, the artist will produce sketches that capture the emerging idea.” A final sketch will be prepared by local artist Scott Tobin, which will be used as a template for the final artwork. Although $7,500 will come from the public art fund, the total project has an estimate cost of $26,410, much of which will be absorbed by the baseball association. “I’ve heard from people in Rutland who said they’d like to see more art,” said Coun. Mohini Singh. “I love that people are celebrating the history they have.”

According to Coun. Gail Given, the advantage of the project is the number of eyes that will soak in the endeavour. “It’s nice to see we’re taking art to a busy location—blending history, art and sport in one location,” she said. “I’m also glad to see the level of engagement.” It’s unclear whether a plaque or write-up will accompany the painting, but Mayor Walter Gray said it wouldn’t be necessary anyway. “Art speaks for itself,” he said. “‘What’s that about?’ says one person to another person, as they dip into their popcorn waiting for a home run.” This $7,500 is the last of this year’s allotment to public art, but city staff said plenty remains in the fund from year’s past.

Bear sighting Cancer gala raises $180,000 for research short on details Grizzly from A1 The complaint was that a grizzly bear was spotted by joggers heading up the Apex trail, about 100 metres from the top, on Friday afternoon. However, Lockwood said they haven’t received any complaints in this area yet about bears, and the animals will only just be coming out of hibernation from dens located at the lower elevations. He is concerned they will head down into the valley where the grass is greening up, and if they are distracted by garbage or pet food, they may forget to head back up country once the snow melts. So, he warns that it’s

important no garbage be put out before the morning of your trash pickup day. As well, pet food and bird feeders should be taken in so they don’t attract the bruins, and barbecue grates should be cleaned after each use. Bears have very sensitive noses when it comes to food smells, and they have a good memory for places they last found food, even if that was a year ago. “Once they get into garbage they’ll stay, so be sure to keep it inside,” warned Lockwood. People found attracting bears can be charged and fined.

Efforts to carry out ongoing research for treating children with cancer was given an $180,000 boost by local Canadian Cancer Society supporters who attended the Daffodil Ball last Saturday at the Sparkling Hill Resort.

This social and philanthropic event was presented by the Sentes Automotive Group. The gala began with a champagne reception and was followed by a delicious four-course meal prepared by international-

ly-renowned Chef Christian Wallner, each course paired with complimenting, local wines. The honorary Daffodil Ball co-chairs were local MP Ron Cannan and his wife Cindy along with Sally Ginter, a southern

Interior regional director, who spoke about why the Canadian Cancer Society and its fundraising efforts, like the Daffodil Ball, are so important in the fight against cancer. Tim Tamishiro, one of Canada’s most endearing

jazz vocalists and CBC Radio2 host of “Tonic” performed an intimate concert and guests danced the night away with DJ Krucial K “The Flying Hawaiian.”

Research from A11 “The Canadian Cancer Society’s 8th annual Daffodil Ball was an extraordinary event filled with hope and inspiration as we came together to fight cancer,” said the Cannans. “While two out of five Canadians will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime, British Columbians are living longer and death rates from cancer are falling. This wouldn’t be possible without organizations like the Canadian Cancer Society and the impactful work they do for cancer research, prevention and support.” Since 2005, the Daffodil Ball has raised over $1,365,000 for cancer research and support.

Local seniors invited to audition for talent contest The B.C. Chartwell Seniors Housing REIT will be looking for the next rising musical star among seniors this year. Chartwell will again sponsor Senior Star, Canada’s largest talent competition dedicated to seniors.

Now in its 6th year, this singing and musical instrument competition is open to anyone who is 65 years and over and a Canadian resident. The Chatsworth Retirement Suites and Bungalows, 1831 Parkview Cres., will host a regional

audition on June 21. Registration forms can be obtained at The Chatsworth and auditions will be held in May. Contestants do not have to be living in a Chartwell residence to participate. “Chartwell’s Senior Star has grown to become

the largest celebration of senior talent in Canada,” said Brent Binions, president and CEO of Chartwell Seniors Housing REIT. “We are proud to support the incredible talent of today’s seniors and continue to be amazed and


entertained year after year by the calibre of performers who participate.” In the regional competitions, contestants are given a maximum of five minutes to sing a song, play an instrument, or do both, and their performance is videotaped. Musical accompaniment is provided to singing contestants, if required. A panel of three

judges, made up of local musical experts, government officials, and media representatives, choose the top three local contestants, each of whom will be recognized with a Senior Star trophy. Videos of the first and second place winners from across Canada are then submitted to a celebrity panel of judges who will narrow the list to nine

competitors invited to compete in the Senior Star National Final, to be held next November in the Ontario community of Niagara Falls. Chartwell Seniors Housing REIT owns and operates a complete range of seniors housing communities from independent supportive living through assisted living to long-term care.

Impressive UFC win for MacDonald

Okanagan Athletics take top spot in PBL


Kelowna mixed martial artist Rory MacDonald says he won’t fight welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre because the pair are friends and training partners. But if MacDonald continues his rise through the UFC’s welterweight division, he may not have a choice.



MacDonald, 22, won his third UFC fight in a row on Saturday night, beating English fighter Che Mills in dominating fashion and improving to 13-1 overall and 4-1 in the UFC. “I’m very happy that I won,” said MacDonald after the fight, which the referee stopped in the second round as MacDonald landed a barrage of blows. “I made some technical errors that I can look back on and fix. I’m happy because I can work on that and get better.” The fight wraps up MacDonald’s original five fight contract with the UFC and while there is no word on his next fight, there is little question that the former member of Kelowna’s Toshido Fighting


KELOWNA mixed martial artist Rory MacDonald improved his record to 13-1 overall and 4-1 in the UFC on the weekend with a win over Che Mills. Arts will continue with the UFC. Jason Probst of the web site, said MacDonald’s success comes from his overall skill package which was on display on Saturday. “He imposed his will from start to finish against Mills,” said Probst. “He’s great everywhere. He’s not just a good striker, he

doesn’t just have good ground-and-pound or good wrestling skills. He’s great everywhere. That’s why he’s shooting up the rankings so fast.” MacDonald’s only loss in the UFC came against Carlos Condit, a fighter that is scheduled to step into the ring against St. Pierre in November. When asked after Saturday’s fight whether

MacDonald would want to step into the ring with St. Pierre he said no, instead talking about a rematch with Condit. “I want my rematch with Carlos soon,” he said. “Besides that I just want to keep fighting and getting experienced. [Who I fight] is up to my management, the UFC and my coaches.”

A third straight series win to open the season has vaulted the Okanagan Athletics into sole possession of top spot in the B.C. Premier Baseball League. The A’s took three of four games from the Parksville Royals over the weekend at Elks Stadium to push their 2012 record to 9-3. Okanagan now leads the Victoria Mariners and Nanaimo Pirates by one game atop the PBL. After dropping the series opener on Saturday, the A’s erupted for 34 hits and 32 runs in sweeping the last three games from the Royals. “There was no reason to lose that first game but all in all, I’m pleased with the end result,” said A’s coach Evan Bailey. “It’s good the way the guys bounced back, they put up two convincing wins on Sunday. It was a good weekend.” In Game 1 Saturday, the Athletics managed just three hits—two by Nolan Handley—in a 2-0 loss. Dillon Kakoshke turned in a solid pitching effort in a losing cause, giving up just five hits and two runs while striking out seven in six innings of work. In Game 2, it was another pitching gem from 16-year-old right-hander James Walker who allowed just two hits in a complete game outing as the A’s beat Parksville 6-2. Walker is 2-0 this sea-

son with a 0.75 ERA. “He’s been great for us,” Bailey said of Walker. “He’s always prepared and shows so much poise and confidence out on the mound.” Brandon Johnson hit a two-run home run for Okanagan, while Dawson Yates and Davis Todosichuk had two hits apiece. On Sunday, Handley scattered five hits over six innings to go 3-0 as the A’s won the day’s first game 13-3. Dallis Senger had two RBIs and scored twice. In the series finale, Yates went 4-for-4 and Brandon Sonnenberg went 3-for-3 with three RBIs in a 13-2 win. Jordon Ramirez added three RBIs, while junior hurler Joey Fraser tossed a complete game four hitter. Yates finished the weekend with nine hits, raising his season average to .414. “He’s our best pure hitter,” Bailey said of Yates. “It was only a matter of time until he broke out.” Meanwhile Sonnen-

berg swiped five bases over the four games to boost his league-leading total to 12, and is now batting .432. “Brandon has been a huge asset for us,” said Bailey. “He’s taken the mental side of his game to the next level.” The Athletics continue their 16-game home stand this weekend with a fourgame set against the North Delta Blue Jays.


The Okanagan junior Athletics came up empty on opening weekend of the B.C. Junior Premier Baseball League season losing all four games to the hometown North Delta Blue Jays. The A’s lost 16-2, 5-0, 8-2 and 18-13. In the series finale, Chris Gooding and Christian Dupas each had two RBIs. Okanagan had its troubles defensively committing 16 errors. The junior A’s return to action this weekend as they host the Whalley Chiefs at Edith Gay Park.

Severson gets bronze with Team Canada in Czech Republic

It wasn’t the preferred colour, but winning his first ever international hockey medal was still an unprecedented thrill for Damon Severson. The Kelowna Rockets defenceman helped Team Canada to a bronze medal at the World Under-18 Hockey Championship in the Czech Republic. The Canadians needed overtime on Sunday to edge past Finland 5-4 in overtime in the third-place game. It was a positive bounce-back result for the Canadian team which suffered disheartening 2-1 loss to the United States 48 hours earlier in the semifinal. Severson, who had two assists in seven games at the world tournament, was grateful for the oppor-

tunity to play for his country on the international stage. “Coming home with a bronze medal,” Severson said on his Twitter account. “Unreal experience here in Europe with all the guys. Extremely honoured to represent my country.” It was the 6-foot2, 198-pound Melville, Sask. native’s second outing with Hockey Canada. Severson played for Team West at the 2011 World Under-17 Challenge in Portage la Prairie, Man. In two seasons with the Rockets, Severson, 17, has 11 goals and 43 assists in 125 regular season games, and four goals in 14 playoff contests. Severson is now looking forward to this sum-

The Rattlers faltered in the third period as Kelowna won most of the loose ball possessions and capitalized on the Rattler’s mistakes. Penalties also cost the Rattlers (30 minutes) which eventually wore down their penalty killers, and allowed Kelowna to keep pace with the Rattler’s sharpshooters.

Charity paraglider returns home from aerial adventure Wade Paterson STAFF REPORTER

After completing a whirlwind adventure that was anything but a smooth ride, Peachland’s Mark Jennings-Bates is glad to be home. Jennings-Bates arrived at YLW Thursday morning. He and Vernon’s Glenn Derouin worked together in Australia on Flight4Life—an attempt to break the world record for longest journey by powered paraglider— while raising money for several charitable organizations. “What a great experience; it was absolutely fantastic,” said JenningsBates. “It didn’t all go (according) to plan, but the good news was we had a plan so that we could adapt


MARK JENNINGS-BATES arrived home from his paragliding tour in Australia last week. when it didn’t work.” He and Derouin began their journey on Feb. 8; however, Jennings-Bates was sidelined after an ac-

cident in Queensland broke his propeller. “We didn’t have enough spares to carry on, so I said, ‘Let’s just

try and get the Guinness World Record and I’ll take a backseat on the flight.” Derouin carried on but had to deal with “Aus-

tralia’s worst weather in recorded history.” “We sat down and (looked) over 30 years of meteorological data from Australia’s meteorological office. It all supported the route that we took, but I don’t think it was more than a week that we had the right winds.” Despite the setbacks, Derouin completed nearly 8,500 km, beating the previous world record of 8,008 km set by Canadian Ben Jordan. “If you look at the average recreational paraglider pilot, they might fly one or two hours per week. In less than two months, we probably put 10 years experience on the motors and wings. “It puts into context what we did.” Jennings-Bates isn’t hesitating before preparing for his next adventure.

“Right now I’m training for a 100 km run in Guatemala, and I really don’t like running. So that’s going to be a big mental challenge for me, as well as a physical challenge. “The hope is that I can get organized physically for that before November.” After that, JenningsBates will get geared up for the Dakar Rally in January. When asked what makes him such a thrillseeker, Jennings-Bates joked, “There’s no point staying at home all day when it’s snowing. “The reason that we do it is to save lives. I think it would be very self-centred if I just wanted to do this to have fun. “At the end of the day, if we’re not raising the profile for the charity and

raising money to save kids lives, there’s really not much point doing it.” Flight4Life raised money for Rally4Life—a charity focused on relieving poverty through the provision of safe water, sanitation, education and shelter to families in need around the world—and Australia’s Royal Flying Doctor Service. So far the amount of funds raised is lower than Jennings-Bates would like; however, there are several more initiatives that he hopes will help the cause. “The plan is we keep working the social media, we look at doing a TV series or a DVD release— those sales will start to impact the money that comes in.” wpaterson

The Okanagan Symphony Orchestra had a banner year. During an annual update for Kelowna city council, key members of the orchestra explained they’ve been able to expand their creative profile through diversifying the type of events they hold while becoming more financially robust. “We want to get out into the community,” said OSO musical director Rosemary Thompson, speaking about the creative side of the orchestra. The symphony’s mantra, she said, is “see it, hear it, love it” and that aim is

met through playing at small outdoor concerts, at schools and in seniors’ centres. Musicians are also collaborating with other community arts groups and the most notable partnership, to date, was with Ballet Kelowna. While the orchestra’s community profile is increasing, so too is their financial security. “This Okanagan Symphony Orchestra season had a modest operating surplus, which came to $11,000,” said Scott Wilson, the orchestra’s general manager. A number of factors feed into the financial success of the orchestra. Ticket sales have been

high, fundraising and cost saving efforts successful and, funding partnerships stable. The biggest financial boon, however, was recently deposited into the orchestra’s account. “A year ago, as a result of conclusions of gaming inquiry, provincial gaming funding was restored for adult cultural activities,” said Wilson. As a result, $63,000 of gaming revenue hit the symphony coffers last month. “It takes pressure off us,” said Wilson, adding they’ll start more outreach programs with the head start and that, in turn, will bring more money into the economy.

Trunk sale can unclutter your life Looking to sell, trade or give away some of your unwanted or gently used stuff? Then you’ll want to take part in the second annual Trunk Sale at Okanagan College on Saturday, May 26. Organized by the Regional Waste Reduction Office, regional waste reduction facilitator Rae Stewart says this is the perfect opportunity to unclutter your life, and get

your unwanted stuff into the hands of someone who wants it. “The Trunk Sale is one giant garage sale in the parking lot of Okanagan College. It’s all about bargains, reuse, and lots of fun,” she said. Stewart says trunk sales are hugely popular in the U.K., but not as well known here. “Just as the name suggests, you do the selling from the trunk of your car,

van or back of your pickup. Load up your vehicle with the goods you want to sell, bring a table with you if you need one, or just sell straight from the back of your vehicle. It’s free to take part, but you do need to sign up beforehand to secure a spot. “ Deadline for registrations is Wednesday, May 23. To register, call the Regional Waste Reduction Office at 250-469-6250.

Myths about guide dogs deflated

April 25 is International Guide Dog Day, an opportunity Kelowna resident Denise Sanders hopes will help dispel some common myths about guide dogs. Sanders says the top 10 common myths about guide dogs are : 1. Guide dogs can read traffic lights. A guide dog will lead its blind partner to a curb, then sit and wait for further instructions. The guide dog user will listen to traffic to decide when it is safe to cross. 2. Guide dogs never get to play. Like humans, guide dogs have time to work and play. When they are not wearing their harness, guide dogs are like regular, well-behaved pets— they have fun! 3. Guide dogs know where to go. The guide dog understands commands like “forward”, “find the stairs” or “left” and “right” but it is up to the guide dog user to direct the dog. Often the guide dog user will learn routes in advance by asking a sighted person or ask passersby along the way. 4. Having a guide dog in a restaurant is a health code violation. By law, a guide dog may accompany its user anywhere, including res-

taurants. 5. All guide dog users are completely blind. Only 10 per cent of all legally blind persons are totally blind. Most can see light, shapes or movement. 6. Guide dogs are paid for by the government. B.C. Guide Dogs relies on individual and corporate donations to cover the $37,000 cost of training each guide dog. The guide dog user only pays $1. 7. Any dog can be trained to become a guide dog. It takes a special dog with a particular personality to make a great guide dog. B.C. Guide Dogs carefully breeds its own puppies based on good health and temperament. 8. A blind person will only need one guide dog over his/her lifetime. A healthy guide dog can work up to eight years before retirement, which means that a blind person may need four or five replacement guide dogs in his/her lifetime. 9. Retired guide dogs are taken away from their blind partner. In most cases, a retired guide dog stays with its partner as a pet. Otherwise, the dog is adopted by a carefully screened family.

Dorchester workers vote to strike BCGEU members at the Dorchester Retirement Residence in Kelowna voted strongly in favour of strike action last week. Talks broke down between the B.C. Government Employees Union local bargaining committee and Revera, the company that manages Dorchester Retirement, earlier in April. The two parties have been at the negotiating table for almost a year. “After a long period of

negotiations, the employer is still unwilling to offer any improvements in any areas of the contract,” claimed Debra Critchley, the BCGEU staff representative negotiating the agreement. “Revera has even rejected our proposals for improvements to bullying and harassment language.” The employer has filed

for mediation but no dates are set. This is the third round of negotiations that BCGEU has undergone with Revera at Dorchester. In the last round in 2008-09, workers were on strike for almost two months before a deal was reached. “We are hoping that mediation will bring the parties closer together but the members have shown



that they are willing to take serious job action to ensure that they get a fair and reasonable agreement,” said Critchley. Dorchester Retirement Residence is an independent living facility in Kelowna for seniors that employs over 35 staff including bus drivers, housekeepers, food service workers and clerical staff.

City recognizes outstanding community achievements Genealogical enthusiast Marie Ablett is Kelowna’s woman of the year, winner of the Sarah Donalda-Treadgold Memorial Award, while designated driver dad Paul Nesbitt won the Fred Macklin Memorial Award for man of the year at Kelowna’s 37th annual civic and community awards. Ablett is a founding member of the Kelowna and District Genealogical Society and branch genealogist for the Thompson Okanagan chapter of the United Empire Loyalists of Canada, for whom she stores the library in her home and helps teach others. As well, Ablett is not afraid of ghosts, as evidenced by her involvement in the city’s Pioneer Cemetery project. She spent hours researching and trudging through burial grounds to identify and mark more than 130 graves. She also helped record inscriptions on grave markers in local church yards and cemeteries, to

get the information online before time erases them. Ablett is treasurer of the Canadian Celiac Association’s Kelowna Chapter and writes their four annual newsletters, as well as helping those who are newly-diagnosed and need to learn about glutenfree alternatives. Nominators said she volunteers more hours than a full-time job, and is also the historian, archivist and photographer for the Okanagan Valley Quilters Guild and chair of the Kelowna High School 1954 group. Nesbitt is responsible for incorporating the nonprofit Designated Driver

Dads who work in teams to drive home impaired motorists, along with their vehicles. Such a service not only has the potential of saving their lives, but also those of the innocent people who may have found themselves in the wrong place at the wrong time. Last year, he worked two nights every single weekend except Christmas Eve, helping between 800 and 2,000 people to get home safely. He organizes volunteers for every weekend when the bars close, to help those who should not be getting behind the wheel. There’s no charge,

but the group does accept donations. The Anita Tozer Memorial Award was presented to Barry Urness, described as one of the city’s best “go-to men,” if you want something done. He is a founding member of the Okanagan Sun Junior Football team, and served in a number of positions both locally and nationally for the junior football program. He was named Canadian Junior Football Executive of the Year in 1989 and a Football B.C. Builder in 1999. Urness also founded the KSS Celebrity Dinner in 1985; served as president of the Kelowna Amateur Sport Society for 10 years; was a director of the Kelowna Track and Field Society, member of the Multi-Purpose

Arena task force and the Mission Sportfield Committee; vice-president of the B.C. Summer Games in 1994 and a member of the 2015 Canada Games bid committee. He is also a provincial director for the Duke of Edinburgh Awards; was honourary chairman for the first two phases of the Mission Creek Greenway project and was recognized by the federal government with a Commemorative Medallion. He is a Fred Macklin Memorial Award winner from a previous year. Tanveer Gill was named Young Female of the Year. A first-year nursing student at UBCO, she was chosen to take part in a debate about health care at a national conference in Ontario last year, and presented to a provincial

nursing conference. Since 2009 she has been a volunteer at Kelowna General Hospital and also volunteers at the Kelowna Women’s Shelter, Global Citizen’s Week and the Gran Fondo Bike Race. Terry Lee was named Young Male of the Year. He is co-president of his KSS class, a champion debater, a conservationist, volunteer, entrepreneur, tennis player, coach and referee, as well as a volleyball referee. Nathan Flavel received the Honour in the Arts award with his tenor voice, tap dancing and acting over the past decade at the Kelowna Actors Studio, in which he is a partner. Without a single grant, the studio has had its best three years yet, despite the economy, and has ex-

panded facilities with a $140,000 renovation to the 100-year-old building to accommodate dinner theatre. Okanagan Mission student Hayley Manlove was awarded the Teen Honour in the Arts for her efforts at the Robb Card Dance Studio, dancing, volunteering and teaching, as well as creating and teaching dances to her school’s musical theatre productions. Chosen the Central Okanagan Foundation volunteer organization of the year, was the Now Canada Society. Corporate Community of the Year award winners were The Women’s Place Fitness Centre and the BMO Bank of Montreal. See story on A18 for sports civic award winners.


Theme for open house will be ‘fun’ The Kelowna branch of the SPCA invites the public to an animalthemed day of fun at an open house planned for Sunday, May 6. The event, sponsored by Hill’s Science Diet pet food, takes place from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Kelowna SPCA, 3785 Casorso Rd. In addition to featuring pets looking for loving homes, activities at the Kelowna SPCA Open House will include shelter tours, refreshments, education booths, and face painting. There will also be an ‘ask a vet’ booth,

nail trimming, and much more. Hill’s Science Diet is partnering with SPCA branches across B.C. to promote adoption of homeless animals during May. “The open house series is an opportunity for people to meet the animals available for adoption and to have fun learning more about how to help animals in the community,” said Lorie Chortyk, general manager of community relations for the B.C. SPCA. “We are extremely grateful to Hill’s for spon-

soring this series to showcase the wonderful animals we have for adoption.” Hill’s Canada donates free food for all dogs, cats, puppies and kittens at SPCA branches across the province to help ensure that the animals receive a high quality and consistent pet food. The program promotes the health of shelter animals, making them more adoptable and enables animals to be transferred between shelters without suffering any ill effects from changing pet food.

Janet Shaw

Yasmin John-Thorpe

Lane Merrifield


Three honoured for attaining levels of high achievements Okanagan College’s 2012 Honourary Fellows each have something in common—the three local recipients are renowned for their vision, advocacy for youth, and impact on the people of the Okanagan. Yasmin John-Thorpe, Lane Merrifield and Janet Shaw have each been granted Okanagan College’s highest recognition as Honourary Fellows. “It is a privilege to welcome the 2012 Honorary Fellows to Okanagan College,” said president Jim Hamilton. “To say this year’s recipients have had a deep impact on our communities is an understatement. In their own unique ways, Yasmin, Lane and Janet have made meaningful contributions that have served, and continue to serve, the people who call the Okanagan home.” Well-known in the South Okanagan as a writer, literacy advocate, and philanthropist, Penticton native Yasmin John-Thorpe will be honoured at Okanagan College’s Spring Convocation ceremony June 2, 10:30 a.m., in Kelowna. John-Thorpe is passionate about


literacy and writing. She is a co-founder of Penticton Writers and Publisher, coordinator of Raise-a-Reader in the South Okanagan and organizes the annual British Columbia Youth Writers Camp in Penticton in which she serves as a mentor to young writers. Her efforts to promote literacy in the province earned John-Thorpe the B.C. Community Achievement Award in 2010. The Okanagan College alumna is a respected author, having written several children’s stories, two were published in education readers and one was selected to appear in a Caribbean reader for young hospital patients. John-Thorpe documented a 2010 pilgrimage trek through Spain, which resulted in a coffee table book. Donations to the book benefitted the Raisea-Reader program. A longtime supporter of Okanagan College, John-Thorpe served as the honourary co-chair of the $5-million fundraising campaign for Okanagan College’s Centre of Excellence in Penticton. In 2005, she and her husband, former local MLA Rick Thorpe, contrib-

uted $250,000 to establish a scholarship fund to support local students entering Okanagan College and UBC’s Okanagan campus. To date, 28 students from the Okanagan have received the scholarships. Lane Merrifield, one of the Okanagan’s best-known entrepreneurs, will receive his Honourary Fellow distinction at the college’s afternoon convocation ceremony June 2, 1:30 p.m. Merrifield is the co-founder of Club Penguin, the Internet’s largest virtual world for children, and now serves as executive vice-president of Disney Online Studios, overseeing Disney’s Virtual Worlds and Connected Games. Merrifield exemplifies key attributes of an Okanagan College Honorary Fellow—chief among them being innovation, passion and leadership. Club Penguin began in 2005 out of a desire to provide a safe online space for children around the world to connect in a fun, creative and meaningful way. The company grew significantly and was acquired by Disney in 2007. His projects have won numerous awards including a Webby, BAFTA,

and various Parent Choice Awards. In addition to such external successes, Disney Online Studios was recently named one of the top 20 Best Places To Work in Canada, affirming Merrifield’s corporate vision and leadership. The company’s philanthropic contributions as a result of the company’s success have been impactful through the development of a giving culture of global citizenship. Since Club Penguin’s inception, millions have been donated to a wide variety of charitable organizations. Longtime Oliver resident Janet Shaw will receive Honorary Fellow status at the college’s summer convocation ceremony June 28, 6 p.m., in Kelowna. Shaw has deep roots in the South Okanagan as a post-secondary advocate, policy maker and devoted volunteer. She led Okanagan College’s Board of Governors in the role as chair from 2006-09. Shaw was first appointed to the OUC board in 2001 and spent the next eight years enhancing board governing processes. Upon retiring from the college

board in 2009, Shaw earned high praise from her colleagues for her contribution to developing the college’s board governance model. The former registered nurse has spent many years advancing the needs of education in the province both in her roles at the college and through her volunteer work in the K-12 system. Her involvement in education comes from a deep personal philosophy in the value of education and training. Shaw has been instrumental in shaping a sector at a time when advanced education in British Columbia has been undergoing significant changes. She helped coalesce the boards of British Columbia’s colleges and refine their approach to sector advocacy and policy development. Prior to her work in post-secondary and in board governance, Shaw served as mayor and as a councilor for the District of Logan Lake. She has been involved in a number of volunteer organizations, currently serving as president of Desert Valley Hospice Society.

Three Okanagan community builders remembered B ‘‘ .C.’s Okanagan Valley saw the passing of several significant business leaders and community builders last week. If things tend to happen in threes, this indeed was a very big three. Tom Foord was born in 1922 in tiny Instow, Sask. After a stint in the Canadian Air Force, he and his new wife settled in Vernon in 1944. He bought a local gas station in 1951 and, a couple of years later, decided to focus on selling tires. That decision led to the creation of Kal Tire (named after our local


Robert Smithson Kalamalka Lake). A little over 60 years later, Kal Tire is a national and international success story. It has steadily expanded and now has more than 240 service locations, four OTR plants and four warehouses across Canada. Kal Tire’s Canadian network of service loca-

tions spans from Vancouver Island to the border of Quebec, and Kal Tire Mining Tire Group operates in 19 countries across five continents. Throughout the decades of business success, Foord and his family have cared deeply for their home town of Vernon and have been involved in too many community causes to list here. Their devotion to their home town is demonstrated by the fact that, despite their company’s stunning success, their head offices remain in Vernon. Des Schumann was born in 1917 in Adelaide, Australia.

He was stationed with the Royal Australia Air Force during World War Two in New Guinea and the Catalinas, and in Japan after the war. He has been described as having had the Midas touch when it came to ski resorts. Schumann started off with minor player Mount Hotham in Victoria, Australia, turning it into a successful resort. His impact in the Okanagan came with his purchase of the (then) underachieving Big White Ski Resort in 1985. Schumann invested heavily in the resort (located about an hour from Kelowna) spending many times the original purchase price to upgrade facilities. The Schumann family’s efforts to increase the facilities and profile of Big White were hugely successful. They added Silver Star Mountain Resort, outside Vernon, to their portfolio in 2001. Again, the Schumanns

invested heavily, installing high speed chairlifts, guest services infrastructure, and a variety of snow-related activities. Big White and Silver Star are now as fundamental a part of the community as is Okanagan Lake and are wellknown to discerning skiers world-wide. Irving “Ike” Barber was born in Edmonton, Alta., in 1923. He graduated from the University of British Columbia’s Faculty of Forestry in 1950, having previously served during World War II for five years with the Royal Canadian Air Force. In 1978, Barber founded Slocan Forest Products Limited, building it into one of North America’s leading lumber producers. He retired as chairman in 2002. He was instrumental in establishing programs to promote education and research throughout B.C. He has been described as having had a life-long belief in the value of edu-


cation and the importance of access to education, regardless of income, especially in remote communities of the province. Barber was closely involved with UBC both in Vancouver and in the Okanagan Valley. The Irving K. Barber Learning Centre, to which he donated $20 million in 2006, remains a worldleading facility and a hub of the Vancouver campus.

In 2004, he donated another $10 million to establish the Irving K. Barber School of Arts and Sciences and Learning Centre Interface Program at UBC’s new campus in the Okanagan. He will be remembered as one of B.C.’s most prominent entrepreneurs and education philanthropists. This column is obviously too brief to fully recognize the range of accomplishments and contributions of these three fine men. But their investments in our Okanagan Valley— in dollars, ingenuity and sweat—will be seen, felt, and appreciated by local residents, employees, and students for decades to come.

Positive steps for ending employment on a high note E mployment relationships are complicated things— the longer one stays with an employer the deeper the connections can be and the harder it can be to leave, even when it is obvious that a change is needed. Employees leave for all kinds of reasons. In my column today, I’d like to talk about voluntary departures, the potential impact on interpersonal relationships and how the winding down process can be handled more effectively. One obvious situation of voluntary departure is retirement. As a natural evolution in the employment cycle, it is relatively easy to accept. A second situation is when a younger employee gives notice and that can be more emotionally complicated. Both cases present common challenges for an employer. There is the loss of the employee’s knowledge and skills, the potential drop in productivity during the wind-down period coupled with the personal impact of losing a familiar working relationship. From an operational perspective, the employer’s top priority is likely to be maintaining the flow of business activities both during and after the employee’s departure phase.


Laurie Mills Having a clear, efficient plan for backfilling, hiring and/or training a replacement is critical. Ideally, the departing employee is part of that process so that the transfer of knowledge is more complete and disruption to work activities is minimized. Once an employee has decided to leave, there is always the potential that they will disengage and that can easily translate into lower productivity, even in those who have been good performers. As an employer, it is wise to be prepared for that shift and try to minimize the effects. It makes good business sense to tap into the employee’s knowledge and understanding of their job while they are still employed, so why not involve them directly in the transition process? Doing so will send the message that their input is valued and appreciated. That may just be enough to keep their motivation up until their last day. Knowing the right ap-

proach for ending the employment relationship is trickier. Whether the employee is changing jobs or moving into retirement, the way their exit is handled will have a lasting impression on everyone. Much depends on the reasons for the departure. It can be as simple as an employee moving away for personal reasons or it can be as complicated as an employee leaving

because they feel their talents are not appreciated or well utilized. The employer’s response to an employee who has chosen to leave, regardless of the reason, can be quite revealing. Some employers are able to accept the natural cycle of staff changeover and be professional to the end. For others it may feel like a personal rejection triggering negative be-

haviour that is completely counter productive to the situation. People who change jobs are reminded to not burn bridges with bad behaviour because each employer is a potential reference for their work performance. Doesn’t the same rule apply to employers? Of course it does because employees make their own assessments which can be strongly in-

fluenced by how their exit was handled. The reality is that employees will come and go. So why not take the high road and consider each one as an ambassador for you and your business? The ideal approach is to be a consistently good employer—one who sincerely supports, engages and appreciates all employees, whether they are just coming on board,

Combination of money, passion and purpose always wins


assion and purpose go together like bread and butter in the entrepreneurial world. In my experiences over the years, I’ve come to realize that purpose without passion is a waste of precious time and money. Most of us nurture some ambitions, projects we might like to achieve or hobbies/pursuits we hope to partake in at some point in our future. But how many of us grab hold of available, accessible opportunities that may truly change our lives in a positive way, forge ahead and actually take action? A short while ago, after writing a series of columns about starting a venture based on something you love doing and are passionate about, some folks responded saying they weren’t sure at times


Joel Young what they were most passionate about or how to find their true purpose. So this week, I thought I would tackle that issue further. When I am approached by someone who wishes to speak to me about seeking investment or financing for their new venture, we invariably begin the communication about their lifestyle. If a person designed a business that was not compatible with their goals in life, that person might create a profitable venture and make some money, but they would

A Gift in Memory Makes a Difference 250-860-2356

also be miserable. When we are seeking our life purpose, lifestyle design isn’t a crucial element. However, when exploring for an entrepreneurial purpose, lifestyle design is indeed crucial to building a venture that you’ll both enjoy and truly be passionate about. For example, say you wish to spend more time with your family. Would you really be happy with a business that kept you in an office or out of town much of the time? On the flip side, if you wanted travel the world, how well could you accomplish the goals of your venture if your presence in the office is constantly required? So, there is a need to get real with ourselves and get clarity on our personal goals and designing our lifestyle. Once you’ve figured out your lifestyle design, it’s time to do a little more soul searching to figure out what you’re truly passionate about. This is a time to look within yourself and look back on your life. When were you the happiest and what made you feel those powerful gratifying emotions?

Think about a larger life purpose as well. Many successful entrepreneurs have earned their place in our hearts and minds by setting out to make a difference in their world. Is there a cause you are genuinely passionate about? And how do you know when you’ve found your true entrepreneurial purpose? Many people I have met and befriended over my journey in the entrepreneurial world have told me they experience a settling that comes over them bringing a deep sense of peace and contentment—as if they had arrived home and knew exactly what to do and how to proceed. Success then may come to those who make decisions easier and faster once that entrepreneurial purpose becomes evident, with the realization realize your life will never be the same. Recently, I stumbled on the book, Business as Unusual by Anita Roddick, founder of the Body Shop chain, in which she states: “Dysfunction is the very essence of entrepreneurship. Potential entrepreneurs are outsiders. They are people

who imagine things as they might be, not as they are, and have the drive to change the world around them.” Roddick believes such ingredients are passion and vision. But there is something far more visceral and almost spiritual that exists for the passionate visionary. Although a vision and a passion are essential, it can be said also that purpose drives them both. So, for budding, aspiring or existing entrepreneurs of the Okanagan, what drives you to do what you do? Sometimes it is necessity. Sometimes it is passion. But when you take a closer look, it becomes obvious that all this is driven by something more abstract that is unique and special to the human state—and that is your purpose. What is purpose you ask? Some define it narrowly as being your goal or target, a point to aim

for in reaching in whatever you wish to do. Yes, purpose is like that but more, deeper with wider implications. Frankly, it is the axle around which your wheel of life revolves because purpose is your essential reason why. It is your motivating force, your invigorating energy, your inner fuel. Purpose is what drives you to do what you do and to keep doing it. Simply stated, there are four ways that your purpose is unique. Your purpose goes deeper; your purpose will evolve; your purpose will expand and extend itself; and your purpose will endure. Guy Kawasaki’s fascinating book The Art of the Start taught me and many other entrepreneurs one powerful lesson—“make meaning, not money.” Thus passion and purpose comes to life in a wonderful symbiotic fashion.

Charlie Brown says, “Don’t forget, money isn’t everything.” Lucy’s response was: “But don’t forget to make a lot of it before talking such nonsense.” Hence, passion is powerful, purpose is enduring. Together, they can help you move mountains and give your life meaning. *** The Okanagan Valley Entrepreneurs Society has under serious consideration for 2012 to develop the inaugural Okanagan Valley Entrepreneurship Annual Conference and Showcase. We have come up with the tentative theme title: “Money, Passion and Purpose: Empowering and Educating Entrepreneurs.” Joel Young is an entrepreneurial leadership coach, educator and consultant and the founder, of Okanagan Valley Entrepreneur Society.

Discovering a link Pump up for Bike To Work Week between the earth’s magnetic field and MS As a practicing physiotherapist for 17 years, Okanagan College instructor Brett Wade developed an interest in treating people with chronic diseases. His curiosity was piqued by the similar nature of some autoimmune diseases. “I became fascinated with the similar characteristics of people with diseases such as multiple sclerosis (MS), systemic lupus erythematosus, and rheumatoid arthritis,” Wade said. “Many autoimmune diseases have a distinct global prevalence pattern, but lack a clear cause. For example, MS has the highest prevalence between 40 and 60 degrees north, but its exact cause is the subject of considerable conjecture.” Wade describes how lack of clear cause and distinct global prevalence “suggest the involvement of a variable such as diet, ultraviolet exposure, a virus, etc.” Wade recently completed his PhD at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey in Health Sciences. The title of his dissertation was, “The Geomagnetic Field and Correlations with Multiple Sclerosis: A Possible Etiology for Disease.” A personal interest in the health effects of electromagnetic radiation led Wade to a hypothesis that suggested the magnetic field generated by the earth’s core is related to MS prevalence and may “partially explain the global MS prevalence pattern.” He explains that, “the geomagnetic field is important as it protects us from harmful, ionizing particles emitted continuously from the sun but the strength of the field is not uniform across the planet. One aspect of the geomagnetic field —the horizontal field is weakest in the northern hemisphere and southern Aus-

tralia.” As Wade describes: “The prevalence of MS in these areas is high and thus formed the basis of my hypothesis.” His results did support the hypothesis as Wade noted how living in areas of a weak horizontal field increases background cosmic radiation. It is this background radiation which Wade suggests as a potential contributing factor to the development of MS. “It is unequivocal that chronic exposure to ionizing radiation has negative health effects.” While Wade feels his research results are significant, they are not strong enough to exclude other variables such as low serum vitamin D, viruses, smoking, etc. He more importantly has discovered a link between these seemingly disparate variables, citing these common factors in his Unified Theory of MS Etiology. “One of the effects of exposure to ionizing radiation is the increased production of free radicals and inflammatory chemicals (cytokines). Interestingly, this is the same effect with viruses, smoking and high fat diets. “My Unified Theory of MS Etiology suggests an imbalance between inflammatory and anti-inflammatory cytokines and an imbalance in free radicals contributes to the autoimmune process”. Wade is now working on publishing his results and Unified Theory of MS Etiology. His next stage of research will include an experiment on people with MS to determine the effectiveness of exposure to weak, pulsed, electromagnetic fields. For more information about the study on MS or his research, please contact Brett Wade at

To get ready for cycling season, cyclists around the Central Okanagan are pumping up their tires, oiling their chains and signing up for Bike to Work Week. This annual event runs May 28 to June 3 to engage the community in cycling as part of their daily transportation. “The Central Okanagan’s Bike to Work Week, is part of the smartTRIPS program,” said Mike Kittmer, the City of Kelowna’s active transportation coordinator. “This annual event challenges workplaces, schools and other organizations to incorporate cycling into their commute, and this is what smartTRIPS is all about.” Bike to School Week

is held at the same time and encourages students to learn bike safety and try riding to school. “Throughout the week, Bike to Work teams have the opportunity to compete against other organizations and schools to win prizes,” said Lindsay Eason, Bike to Work Week coordinator for the Central Okanagan. “Celebration Stations will be in neighbourhoods throughout the week of-

fering snacks, cycling information, bike tune ups and a fun way to meet other cyclists.” A recent study in Kelowna showed that residents who ride their bikes to work are significantly happier with their commute than those who drive. Plus you save money and it’s good for your health. To get involved, residents can form a team at

work, school, or place of worship and register by visiting Individuals without a team can also get involved by visiting the Celebration Stations during the week. The event is free to anyone who wants to participate. To register, or for more information about smartTRIPS and Bike to Work Week, visit smartTRIPS. ca or phone 250-8685121.

Walda is predeceased by her husband Alex in 2008. Together they lived a life where they talked, laughed, danced, cried, raised children, paid mortgages, traveled, enjoyed grandchildren, lived and loved through the messiness and wonder of life. Walda leaves behind Donna Condon (Jim), Wayne (Karen), Randy, Colin (Pam) and her special Shannon; grandchildren: Tara, Tanna, Trevin, Gracie, Jenna and Tyler Alexander; three inherited grandchildren: Jim, Hunter and Madison. Also survived by her mother Greta Angoldt; three sisters: Helga Ross (Gordon), Rita Beach (Brian) and Edna Kopeck; numerous nieces, nephews and extended family.

TAYLOR, DR. JAMES ERNEST (JIM) Jim passed away in Kelowna in the presence of his loving family on April 22, 2012 at the age of 94 years. He is survived by his immediate family of Tom and Sue Taylor, Val and Bill Prescott, Nancy and Denis Roy, Kathy and Peter Borsato, Paul and Jane Taylor and Mike Taylor and his extended family of nine grandchildren; Heather Taylor (Steve Shatford), Graham (Itsuki) Taylor, Laura Taylor, Sarah Prescott, Mark Prescott, Jennifer Seifert, Amos Seifert, Emma Taylor and Abby Taylor and four great grandchildren; Terrance Seifert, Fuzuki Taylor, Rio Taylor and Ella Shatford. Jim is also survived by special friend Anne Hendren. Jim was pre-deceased by his wife Betty of 54 years and his daughter Mary. He was a pilot in World War II and was awarded a Distinguished Flying Cross. He then entered the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Alberta and then practiced as a family physician and unofficial local veterinarian in Golden, B.C. for 33 very gratifying years. During Jim’s 33 years in the mountains, he embraced his love of the outdoors including mountain climbing, skiing, hiking, fishing and hobby farming. Being the consummate family man, all these pursuits were shared with his wife and seven children. He strongly embraced community service and led many community organizations. He also served as coroner for many years. He always said he loved every working day of his life and he continued this passion for life throughout his retirement years in Penticton where he enjoyed windsurfing, tennis and golf and spending quality time with family. Jim will be sadly missed by his extended family and friends. Many thanks to Jim’s family physician, Dr. Barry Eliason, the staff of KGH and the staff of The Village at Mill Creek. A Memorial Service will be held on May 6, 2012 at 1:00 p.m. at the Chapel of Springfield Funeral Home, 2020 Springfield Road, Kelowna BC with the Reverend Dr. Gordon Fletcher officiating. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Kelowna General Hospital Foundation, 2268 Pandosy St. Kelowna, BC, V1Y 1T2 and/or The Village at Mill Creek Benevolent Fund, 1450 Sutherland Ave, Kelowna, BC V1Y 5Y5.

Welcome a new friend into the family...«





My name is Nova and I am looking for my new ‘forever home’. I have lots of energy for my age, love my toys and I’m also very snuggly. I often hear the staff refer to me as a a BIG lap dog. I can be particular about other dogs, but I do play well... it’s just a matter of meeting and greeting them so I can find out about them. It would be best if there were no felines in my new house as my breed is known to have a high ‘prey-drive’. Please come and meet me if you are interested.

10 YEARS SHIH TZU X SPAYED FEMALE Honey is an adorable senior who is looking for her ‘forever home’ where she can be cuddled & adored by owners who will be able to keep her close most of the time. She has a great appetite despite the loss of her teeth. She is quiet, quiet and would do best in an adult home where her last years will be filled with love, affection & attention. If you are interested in this sweetie, please come down and meet her. She is also good with cats and other dogs.



Sparky is a real delight. He walks well on leash, enjoys a good back scratch and loves to be loved! He also gets a kick out of swimming and car/truck rides. He can be possessive of his toys, does know his basic commands but could benefit from shedding a few pounds. He still has a lot of life left in him, so come down and spend some time with him.

Goliath is a beautiful, muscular pitty looking for his new ‘forever home.’ As with most dogs of his breed, he is excitable and will need an owner who is experienced and capable of providing the consistent leadership he needs. Goliath is very friendly, good with people, always looking for hugs and attention and would love to be a big lap dog. Please research the breed and ask our staff for more info and and introduction to him.

Please join us on SEPTEMBER 9TH, 2012 at CITY PARK with your favourite furry family member to raise money for our local animals.

CUISINE from Jude’s kitchen salmon, every way I may have grown up here in the Okanagan, but I was born on the coast, and I love seafood of all sorts. I know we’re a little distance from the ocean but with today’s transportation, that really doesn’t account for much. Heck, Jonathon Crofts of Codfathers Seafood Market at Guisachan Village actually drives down to the coast to pick up the first fish of the season quite often, whether it’s halibut or prawns, and rushes it back to Kelowna… That love of seafood will drive people to all sorts of lengths! The king of seafood has to be our own Pacific wild salmon, and I’ve served and eaten it dozens of ways over the years. Whether it’s fresh-caught or fresh from the can, there are many ways to serve this delicately-flavoured fish and I’ve tried most of them. Here are a couple of extra special, but not too complicated ways that will wow the socks off your favourite people. For more great seafood ideas, including salmon recipes, pick up a copy of my book, Jude’s Kitchen, published by the Okanagan Institute, available wherever books are sold, and a few others besides: including Codfathers, the B.C. Wine Museum, Discovery Wines, Quails’ Gate Estate Winery, Calona Vineyards and Ex Nihilo Vineyards. I was delighted to learn last week that it has been nominated, in the regional category, for the Taste Canada food writing awards, formerly Cuisine Canada’s Canadian Culinary Book Awards. These will be shortlisted at the beginning of August and the winner announced in the fall. Wish me luck! Wine choices to pair with salmon can be interesting because contrary to the idea that only whites can be paired with fish, a pinot noir is also a good choice with salmon. We tried the Mission Hill Family Estate Reserve 2010 Viognier, which was luscious with its fresh fruit and honey flavours, but a crisp citrus end that contrasted nicely with the rich fish. JUDIE STEEVES / CAPITAL NEWS

Salmon Patties with Dill I’ve used lots of different recipes over the years for salmon cakes, but this one is better than all of the others. It keeps evolving, as all of our cooking does, so I wanted to share my latest, and best evolution of the classic ‘tin of salmon with a spud’ recipe. When we’re camping, I just ladle spoonfuls of salmon mix into the pan of melted butter, push it down with the flipper and we eat uneven-shaped patties instead of round ones. They taste just the same and clean-up is much easier. Skip the crumbs. You could mix the salmon ahead and take it with you too.

Mush salmon in a medium-sized bowl. Don’t neglect the bones as they’re a good source of calcium. Grate potato into the bowl. I don’t peel it first. Mince sweet-flavoured onion like green onions, purple or other sweet-flavoured onions on top. Mince lemon zest and squeeze fresh lemon juice over it. Beat an egg and add it, along with flour, hot pepper sauce, salt and freshly-ground black pepper, to taste. Mix together well. Form balls, six or eight and arrange, apart, on a piece of wax paper. Smush each in the centre with your hand and push the edges together to form a patty. Sprinkle fine, dried bread crumbs, such as Panko crumbs over the top. Heat oil over medium-high heat in a large frypan and add butter, for flavour. Arrange patties, crumb-side down in the pan. Sprinkle more crumbs on top of each and fry until the underside is brown. Carefully turn over and continue to cook, over medium heat, until the other side is also nice and brown, a total of 15 to 20 minutes. Serve over fresh or wilted spinach.

Dianne's Salmon in Crust My sister-in-law Dianne is a great cook so it’s always a treat to go for a visit. This looks divine and tastes even better, and it’s delicious hot or cold. I know, because I had a slice for breakfast the next morning! It’s kind of like the classic Beef Wellington, except with salmon instead of beef.

TOPPING: 1/4 c. (60 ml) cream cheese 2 green onions 1 garlic clove 2 tbsp. (30 ml) fresh dill 2 tbsp. (30 ml) fresh parsley 1 tsp. (5 ml) lemon zest 1 tbsp. (15 ml) lemon juice salt and pepper, to taste 1 lb. (454 g) puff pastry 1 lb. (454 g) asparagus 1 3/4 lb. (800 g) skinned salmon filet salt and pepper, to taste 1 egg, beaten Pre-heat oven to 425 F. Prepare the topping by finely mincing

the green onions and garlic, the dill, parsley and lemon zest. Soften the cream cheese and beat in the lemon juice, then add the minced ingredients and salt and pepper, to taste. Lay one sheet of puff pastry on a baking sheet and lay the salmon filet on it, making sure all the little bones have been removed first. Remove the tips of the asparagus and arrange the stems on the salmon. Dollop or drizzle the cream cheese mixture over top of the asparagus. Brush the margin of the pastry with beaten egg using a pastry brush, then lay the second sheet of puff pastry over top, pressing the edges together to seal all around the salmon and asparagus. If needed, trim the edges, leaving a border of pastry around the salmon, which you can decorate with a fork or your fingers. Cut a couple of slits in the top to permit the steam to escape, then brush the top with the beaten egg. Bake until it puffs and is golden brown all over, about 35 minutes. Let cool for a few minutes before serving. Serves 6-8.
