BRADLEY LETKEMAN is able to place himself in a spiritual place of his own making, whether it is planting a seed in his garden or engaging in what has become a successful career as a nude model for artists.

T

here’s something zen about drawing, spending hours quietly crafting an image or furiously throwing down lines in a passionate burst of creativity. Bradley Letkeman knows that spiritual space, a place where he can sow a seed and watch it grow into a plant within the course of a week. And so he finds himself on the other side of

those drawings, helping others connect with the beautiful side of life, just as he might find joy on his a mountain bike. The Erotic Art Show, one of the region’s most successful professional art events, unveils 69 new images, art connoisseurs the world over will have people like Letkeman to thank for their open-mindedness.

Favourite Thing #09 - We were so surprised when we moved to Westwood, BB-Qs and entertaining on the Rooftop Terrace is even better than it was in our home.

WHY I LOVE

It’s not everyone, after all, who can sit naked in front of a room full of people and call it a vocation. There’s a reason standing in front of the class without clothes sends many a worrywart or stress-case to the shrink. See story A3.

CLOSE-UP ▼ ART OF POSING NAKED

Finding a successful career as a life drawing model Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

“I’m a skinny dipper,” explains Brad Letkeman, life model and honeybee enthusiast. It’s supposed to explain how this 43-yearold father of a teenage son could find posing nude for students and working artists intriguing enough to take a course at UBC Okanagan and then start work. He elaborates after a confused pause. Letkeman is not a nudist. He’s a cyclist who has developed a fabulous backyard garden/farm with thornless blackberries, raspberry canes and a lily-encrusted water feature. A few months back, he was laid off in a mutually acceptable arrangement, allowing him to spend a year on sabbatical to find a new career and explore what life has to offer. “I decided to do anything and everything that was colourful and unique,” he says. “It was my first week off work and I was at the library and I saw a poster on the big wall of events that said, Life Drawing Models.” He took a one day course, learning from one of the best life models in town how there is a lot more to the task than meets the eye. Then he started call-

Brad Letkeman ing artists like Julia Trops, a pivotal member of the Livessence figurative drawing group who also runs the Erotic Art Show, and contacting schools like the Centre for Arts and Technology. An avid yoga practitioner and athlete, he discovered a hidden knack for creative, dynamic poses, learning he could hold a position for seven hours at a time, sometimes returning to the same pose for multiple days on end. Some sessions required him to jump from pose to pose in 30 second warm-up intervals, while others needed hours of concentration. “It keeps me in shape,” he says. “I’m an athlete, so it’s good for me too.” At the Centre for Arts and Technology, students had him developing superhero poses while he was asked to work in some pop culture figures, like John Travolta, for the

university students. What might appear haphazard to the outsider is actually a complex world of tradition and etiquette that goes to the core of modern and traditional artistic practice, he learned. There are rules and manners and key ways to ensure, as a model, that you are asked back. Models must stay robed when the poses are over, or on break, and avoid eye contact with the artists. “If you’re standing there nude and you’re staring at them, it makes them uncomfortable,” says Letkeman. “For most of us it just makes sense, but there must be some.” Letkeman says he treats his job like a bit like a stand-up routine, keeping the conversation rolling where appropriate and learning how to elicit what the artist is looking for quickly so he will execute the right pose the first time. While he can break form for a moment by communicating with the artist or instructor, once he picks a pose, he’s got to see it through; so he picks carefully. “Quite often I meditate. I have had my closest experiences to God in one of my seven-hour poses,” he says. Unfortunately, the time can also be an accurate way to source a weak point.

CONTRIBUTED

KELOWNA artist Julia Trops own entry, inspired by a life model and showing in the Erotic Art Show. “What’s comfortable to one person is agonizing to another,” he says. “I sat in on a lot of art classes to learn. At first, I was worried I was too masculine in my poses, that it might come off as ego. “So I watched other males pose to provide content for the artist. Then I really realized I could do whatever I wanted on the platform.” The best part of the job, for Letkeman, is knowing he’s helping create art and shape young students’ knowledge of the human form. For the younger members of the crowd, it’s a good way to get used to the human body in a nonsexualized environment, he points out. And it’s rarely dull. “When you’re dis-

robed, you’re a lot more vulnerable, so conversation tends to be more honest because you’re not pretending to be someone you’re not.” Letkeman has been modelling for just eight months, but his experience seems to mirror what Sandra Windsor, a life model with a lifetime of poses under her belt, has to say. Windsor started modelling for her mother, who was a painter, and works for a wide variety of artists today, even using models herself. The life model is a critical part of creating a vibrant piece of art and one that can’t be replicated with a camera or a picture from a book in her view. “Once you’ve drawn from life, you never go

back,” she says. “When the person is right there, you can capture their essence, who they are; whereas in a photograph, someone else has already done that. “To me a photo is just a flat face. It has no meaning. No life.” Whether she’s working in lead, charcoal or on an oil painting, she’s in the moment with her model, and it’s the same experience on the other side of the canvas, she says. Her time and energy go into making a good image, not thinking about whether or not her clothes are piled to the side. “These are professionals and this is work. It’s physical work,” she says. “I’ve always liked doing it. I find it just as creative as my drawing and

painting, just in a physical way.” The Erotic Art Show includes 65 artists this year, coming from as far as Germany. It’s the second year the show has gone international. Most artists only have one piece in the show, but four artists managed to secure two spots and three of the entries are literary. For people like Lynn Erin, from Anglemont, an area near Salmon Arm, it’s one of those shows that artists talk about and friends talk about and eventually you just have to secure a spot. Her sculpture, Moon Dance in the Oyster Bed, captured the organizer’s heart. The word “erotic” See Career A4

Westbank First Nation Chief Robert Louie doesn’t believe that the federal government will have issues with the band’s proposed private hospital. “I believe that the federal government is supportive of the project,� said Louie. “There is nothing controversial to the extent that we are running afoul the Canada Health Act or anything like that. We’ve had a lot of legal advice on that and we’re confident that what we’re doing will satisfy the federal government.� Louie was on hand to speak to members of the Okanagan Urban Development Institute on Thursday. He told the crowd that

he hopes to make additional announcements about Lake Okanagan Wellness Centre later this summer. Louie said that private health care in Canada is “inevitable.� “We believe the main problem that exists is that health care is something that is increased at such dramatic rates. (With) escalating costs, this country is not going to be able to afford full public health care for much longer,�

Telling your story most accurately —the Capital News

Louie told the UDI members. “We know that Canada is one of two countries in the world that does not have full private first tier medical health care. “That’s quite significant when the rest of the world has already moved in that direction. “So it’s not something new to the world. It’s something perhaps that will take some getting used to, but it is the future. We see that as inevitable.�

He added that if WFN didn’t follow through on its plans to create the facility, someone else would create something similar. “It’s something that Canada will certainly be more exposed to in the months ahead, no question.� The 100 bed, 200,000square-foot private health facility proposed by WFN has been in the works for several years, said Louie. He said he hasn’t been surprised by criticism that has come out following news reports of the project. “It would be nice to say that we hope not to have criticism, but I think we can expect that,� he said. “We’re taking our steps and every step we’re taking is backed up by the legal homework that goes along with this. We’re confident that we’re on the right path.�

has always been open for interpretation in the show and while there’s plenty of need for models like Letkeman and Windsor, pieces like Moon Dance in the Oyster Bed require a little imagination to make the connection. To the untrained eye, her piece is a plaster face attached to driftwood with some carefully placed seaside accoutrements; but the whimsical human form is unmistakable. “It’s in the free-spirited voluptuousness of a dancing spirit—very much playful,� said Erin, who shares a studio with her partner, a musician.

Falling rock reaches Hwy 97 Thursday’s wet weather caused what could have been a serious incident on Highway 97 near Winfield. According to the Ministry of Transportation, a rock, weighing an estimated 100 pounds, dislodged from the hillside above the existing two-lane stretch of highway three kilometres north of Winfield, 500 metres north of Ponderosa Road, and fell onto the highway. The rock came down around 10:45 a.m. and had nothing to do with the high-

way construction work currently underway in the area to re-route Highway 97. The rock is believed to have fallen from a rock-cut slope along the existing highway, likely dislodged by the heavy rain saturating the earth it was lodged in. The rock landed on the road shoulder and was rolled into the ditch by a maintenance worker. Some shattered pieces splintered off into the southbound lane but there were no injuries or damage reported.

McDougall Creek flooding causes damage to West Kelowna homes Wade Paterson STAFF REPORTER

Doug Grant is used to keeping a close eye on McDougall Creek around this time of year. But in the 30 years he has lived on Hitchner Road in West Kelowna, he’s never experienced anything like what happened on Wednesday. A dike along McDougall Creek was breached by due to the high water level and the water flowed through an orchard and flooded four homes. Grant’s home was one of the properties with the most significant damage. But Grant wasn’t completely caught off-guard by the flooding this year. He and a neighbour were working hard to prevent such a disaster from happening minutes before the creek burst. “I was up at the creek, waist deep, cutting the trim with my neighbour,� said Grant. “It just came too fast and started bursting the banks.� According to Grant, an assistant fire chief was at the scene before the dike burst.

ONDERIA ROBIE stands in her backyard Wednesday evening to show the depth of the water from the flooding of McDougall Creek. “He was standing there, but he wouldn’t do anything. He said he wasn’t allowed to because it was private property.� Grant said he was surprised because when the creek was dangerously high last year, fire crews worked hard to prevent flooding. “My hat was off to them because they had

about 30 guys here sandbagging and stopping it from flooding, even though it had just started to trickle,� Grant recalled. “(On Wednesday) I said, ‘Look, it’s trickling. It’s going to blow the banks.’ He didn’t do anything until after it (breached). “By the time everything was organized and

(crews) got here, I already had eight feet of water in my basement.� To make matters worse, Grant has been informed that insurance won’t cover the damage from the flood. “I’m hoping the Provincial Emergency Program will help me fund this, because I have no other recourse.� Grant and his girlfriend, Onderia Robie, said that the entire incident happened very fast. As water began to flood into their yard, it seeped under the deck and then flooded down a staircase toward their basement. The pressure of the water was great enough to force the basement door open. “The water came rushing through underneath the deck and then just poured down the (stairs) like a river. There was no stopping it.� Grant and Robie were quick to shut the power off and then scrambled to salvage what valuables they could. On Wednesday evening, the District of West Kelowna declared a local state of emergency and evacuated six properties along Hitchner Road. At 12:05 p.m. on Thursday, the local state See Flooding A7

House insurance won’t cover damage Flooding from A7 of emergency was lifted; however, the area is still being watched carefully. With Thursday’s significant amount of rainfall, Grant isn’t convinced that Wednesday’s disaster won’t repeat itself. “(The creek) is full to the brim right now,” said Grant on Thursday morning. “They worked all night and built up that creek side and it’s right to the top.” On Wednesday evening, Emergency Support Services established a reception centre at the Best Western Hotel to assist evacuees. According to Kirsten Jones, communications supervisor for the district, two evacuated families were helped at the emergency centre. Jones said of the four properties affected, two were “significantly flooded.” The runoff and Thursday’s rainfall also forced the district to close Rotary Trails Park until further notice, According to Jones, Smith Creek ran over its banks in the Copper Ridge

Drive area as well, but the situation remained under control as of early Thursday afternoon. Although West Kelowna has lifted its local state of emergency, Jones warned that many local creeks are nearly full or overflowing due to the deluge of rain and seasonal runoff. The district has provided sand and sandbags, for those fearing the possibility of flooding, at the following locations: • Pebble Beach (adjacent to 2583 Whitworth Rd.) • Osprey Park (adjacent to 1434 Green Bay Rd.) • Casa Loma Beach (2606 Casa Loma Rd.) • Hitchner Park (4081 Hitchner Rd.) • Shannon Woods Park (2490 Shannon Woods Dr.).

A CLOSE EYE was being kept on the water level of McDougall Creek in West Kelowna on Thursday morning.

Residents warned to be prepared for more flooding Judie Steeves STAFF REPORTER

As raindrops bounced off puddles and drummed on rooftops Thursday, the runoff water sluiced along gutters, filled storm systems to overflowing and scudded logs and debris into Okanagan Lake from creeks. Although Kelowna area rivers such as Mission Creek rose, it wasn’t

as alarming as the rise in smaller creeks such as Mill Creek in Kelowna and McDougall Creek in West Kelowna, which overflowed, damaging nearby homes and resulting in the evacuation of six families. (See story on A6.) In less than 24 hours, what would be the average rainfall for the entire month, 26 millimetres, fell on the Central Okanagan’s

landscape, running off into the nearest creeks or rivers and ending up in wetlands, ponds and lakes, reported Environment Canada meteorologist Doug Lundquist. According to unofficial weather stations, in some parts of the Central Okanagan more than double the normal monthly amount of rain fell See Flooding A8

Snow at higher elevations yet to impact the spring runoff

And currently there’s 16 per cent more snow than normal there for this time of the year. “The heavy melt hasn’t even begun yet at higher elevations, such as above 1,200 to 1,400 metres and there’s a full snowpack up there,” noted Campbell. However, a warm air mass and heavy rain has swelled the smaller creeks around the Okanagan and is causing larger ones to rise. Parks such as a section of Brandt Creek Park in Glenmore, between Kane and Yates Roads, and the Rotary Trails in West Kelowna have been closed because Brandt Creek and Powers Creek have risen considerably in the past 12 hours. The Central Okanagan Regional District has closed the Casorso Road underpass on the Mission Creek Greenway because of high runoff and rising

while regional district staff are monitoring creek levels, people are reminded that water levels may rise unexpectedly. So it’s important, Smith said, to keep children and pets safely back from creek banks. As water levels rise, banks could be slippery or subject to erosion. Boaters and those using Okanagan Lake boat launches are advised to watch for floating debris as a result of high water levels in local creeks. Smith reminds property owners living near bodies of water and in low-lying areas to make annual flood protection preparations. Stockpiles of sandbags are available at local fire halls throughout the central Okanagan for those facing an imminent flood threat. Property owners are responsible for providing their own sand for the bags.

COMMUTER COLLISIONS…Three separate crashes on the William Bennett Bridge, involving seven vehicles, caused bridge traffic to grind to a halt during rush-hour Thursday morning. All three collisions were rear-enders and at least one person required medical treatment for non-life-threatening injuries, said Kelowna RCMP Const. Kris Clark. It appeared the first collision was a factor in each of the subsequent crashes, along with weather, road conditions and traffic congestion, he added. Traffic was slowed coming across the bridge from the Westside from 8:40 a.m. to at least 9:45 a.m.

Sex request to boy leads to an arrest An 18-year-old Kelowna man was taken to hospital Wednesday night after he apparently passed a note to a 13-year-old boy asking for sex, say Kelowna RCMP. On April 25 at 5:30 p.m., the police received a report of an indecent act in the men’s washroom of the Plaza 33 Shopping Centre. A 52-year-old Kelowna man and his 13-year-old son were in the washroom when an 18-year-old Kelowna man, who appeared to be naked in one of the stalls, passed the boy a note requesting sex. No physical contact was made, and both the father and his son were able exit the washroom without further incident, although police say both were extremely disturbed by the incident. The 18-year-old, who was apprehended by police, did not show no any apparent physical injuries, but was transferred to hospital in order to receive an assessment of any needed medical care, said the RCMP.

Illusive Kony gets too much publicity

To the editor: On Saturday afternoon, my friend and I saw graffiti on a public fountain in City Park. Spray painted in big sloppy letters were the words KONY 2012.” Both of us groaned. A short walk away, we also noticed posters sloppily taped onto business signs, like the Paramount. If they hadn’t been out of reach, I would have been tempted to tear them down. We were both surprised to see the glowing report on this “cover the night” campaign. Even more astounding is that, in the short hundred or so words, readers wouldn’t even know what country Kony used to operate in, or why people want to make him “famous.” There have been more than a few great journalistic criticisms and insights into the dramatic failings of the KONY 2012 campaign. Just because a video went viral is not news in and of itself. It is news that some priv-

Stand up for liberation from waiting for service

C

anadians are a pretty placid lot. It goes part and parcel with our tripartite motto of “peace, order and good government”—a perfectly sound way to operate. But there are times when the get-up-andgo, no-holds-barred approach implied in the U.S. mantra “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness” sounds far more appealing. Times when the uniquely Canadian characteristic of swallowing your discontent for the sake of maintaining order is, quite frankly, a bit grating. This week’s dent to national pride was started by a doctor’s appointment. Praise be to health care and all that, but if you’re a working stiff with a schedu-

le to follow, it’s not cause always for a Michael Moore-style love letter. An appointment I booked two weeks in advance was scheduled for 11:30 a.m. I got there Kathy 10 minutes early, becauMichaels se it’s polite, yet I was in the waiting room until 12:15 p.m. I sat patiently, grinding my teeth and smiling crazily at everyone who went in before me, until I hit the half-hour mark. At that point, I asked the woman behind the counter if she could ballpark wait times, and she replied, incredulously, “Oh, no dear.” So I called my friend who works at a doctor’s office for a point of reference, and she said it all sounded pretty normal. Normal?

KATHARTIC

What’s the point of an appointment time if it can’t be met? Are we conditioned to deal with poor planning? I was stewing about it in my car on the way home thinking about the length of time I had waited in a store lineup the weekend before, or the hours of my life spent on hold with Rogers. Then I got a call from a friend. “It’s amazing,” she said. “I called Air New Zealand to work out something with my flight and I was answered by a human—immediately!” So shocked by the turn of events, she had to explain to the chipper Kiwi on the other end of the phone, she didn’t actually have her ticket in hand. “Usually, you wait at least 30 minutes to speak to a human when you’re calling Air Canada,” she told her. “This is amazing!” It’s interesting to me, that customer service in all fields, public or private,

has become so poor in Canada that the sound of an amicable human voice on the other end of the phone is cause for cheers and backflips. If terrible service was just a marker of not-so-important issues, then I wouldn’t bother mulling it over, but it’s becoming a defining characteristic of our society—only slightly less pronounced than the passive aggressive grumblings that follow. Clearly, something has gone awry. Perhaps the better way forward would be to stop standing for such ridiculously disrespectful service. I know I’d really like to liberate my schedule of wait times—I’d be a lot happier.

Muzzled B.C.ers must fight Northern Gateway

10’ x 10’ PATIO COVER KIT

To the editor: In a recent open letter from Robyn Allen (former president and CEO of ICBC and senior economist for B.C. Central Credit Union), I discovered that in 2010, thenpremier Gordon Campbell signed away B.C.’s authority to conduct its own environmental reviews and assessments to the National Energy Review Board. In light of this, it makes sense that Premier Christy

$

Clark has been silent and impartial to the issue of the proposed Northern Gateway pipeline because she literally has no say in the matter. Isn’t that somewhat unsettling? Does my voice matter? Does your voice matter? Effectively, no because Campbell signed that right away. But B.C. having no say makes no sense considering the proposed pipeline will rip its way through our forests and

the super tankers will have to navigate our treacherous coastal waters. I urge you, as residents of B.C., to understand that the federal government, which clearly has a paramount interest in Alberta tar sand expansion, is very capable of making a decision that could bring great benefit to Alberta while placing B.C. in a position of being liable for all the risk. However, according to clause six of the En-

vironmental Assessment Equivalency Agreement, Premier Clark can take back the power and put it where it should be; in the hands of British Columbians by giving the NEB 30 days written notice to terminate the agreement. It’s that simple. The bottom line is that decisions carrying direct implications to our coastline, invaluable forests, and those who depend on these precious ecosystems for their survival are being made

without B.C. residents in mind. Premier Clark’s email address is a click away and she urgently needs to hear it from us: We as B.C. residents are not happy with the federal government making decisions on our behalf and in the best interests of another province. We must change our powerless state. It’s time we take off our muzzle. Justin Dyck, Kelowna

▼ HEALTH CARE

Private hospital will improve medical services here To the editor: Re: April 19 letters to the editor regarding Westbank First Nation medical centre. The WFN medical centre is what Canada, and this community, needs. Our medical system is plagued by long wait times, among other weaknesses. A private hospital would reduce the strain on the public system. If Canadians are concerned that a private hospital will degrade the health care system as

99900

the best doctors would turn to private centres, perhaps the medical schools should do a better job of ensuring that all graduates perform a better minimum standard in order to weed out the weakest doctors. A private hospital attracting international doctors would make the positions in Canada more competitive and in turn Canada would have better doctors. There are already special privileges for the rich (who have the option to travel internation-

ally for medical treatment), and having a hospital would benefit all Canadians as public wait lines would be decreased. Plus, the benefits to the WFN have the potential to be massive. This is a great idea for our economy and for our community. Catherine Jarawka, Kelowna

Human spinal cord research is still being done at the expense of animals

t

Open letter to Rick Hansen: I hope that during your next 25 years of raising money for spinal cord research we will see the end of inhumane, scientifically fallatcious spinal cord experiments on animals. It was 25 years ago when Lifeforce, a Vancouver-based ecology and animal rights organization, gave you extensive data about the failure of “animal models” but you went on to fund animal experiments. Your boards have had many vivisectors directing your funding priorities. You raised $20 million for spinal cord research as the Man in Motion. Your dream for a cure is a nightmare for animals. It is time to stop the barbaric experiments that have been repeated for over 50 years. New

technologies, clinical/ epidemiological studies permit humane studies with humans. That is how breakthroughs are discovered.

Energy to flog viral video could be put to better use Kony from A10 ileged Americans created a glossy video and did not engage with the countless people in Uganda who have been working to put an end to violence in their country and bring Kony to justice. It is news that people think postering an ugly

logo and slogan with a simplistic vision of awareness in their town means they are making a difference. It could have been far more interesting to ask Kelowna residents what they thought of the campaign, or find some of the people who postered the town and what they were

hoping to accomplish by doing so. Perhaps, speak to some of the people in Kelowna who have worked for NGOs or in Uganda— and not just because of a viral video, because they are engaged and critical global citizens. Julia Caron, Kelowna

regularly hear but don’t always hold water. Here they are. Not all students who want to go to college or university can go. People often say this

has to do with money— not having enough. In my research, I will tell you that it has more to do with having the self-confidence to register and walk into your first class.

This is especially true for adults going back to school after an extended period. For highs school students, the sad reality is for those young adults from

low-income households, they tend to overestimate the cost and underestimate the benefits from a post-secondary education. They can’t imagine paying $5,000 for one year of school, let alone take on student debt. It’s really hard and you need to have high grades in high school to succeed. This is really far from the truth. Studies have shown that for those who end up graduating from college or university it has more to do with perseverance than being smart. It’s more about being able to complete a number of courses which lead to a credential and not giving up when you get discouraged. You shouldn’t go to college or university if you don’t know what you want to do in your life. In some ways I kind of agree with this one. But sometimes you need to get some exposure to new ideas to figure out what kind of career you want. But based on our economy and the need for many young adults to find well-paying secure employment, I would tell

SCHOOL’S IN

Jane Muskens a student to take a few courses and decide within a year if you can. Youth unemployment is so high it doesn’t matter if you go or not. Even though Canada currently has a youth unemployment rate of just below 14 per cent, within this group those with a post-secondary credential have a much lower rate. Today, if you are between the age of 20 and 24 and you have a college or university credential, your unemployment rate is six per cent compared to nine per cent for those who only completed high school and a whopping 15.9 per cent for high school drops. So yes it does pay to go. Student debt is so high why I would want to take on such a large responsibility. It’s daunting when you read about people

Tired of hearing dire economic prognostications? The Central Okanagan Economic Development Commission has the antidote. They’ve compiled a regional economic profile for 2012, and the highlights are far from grim. In a compilation of information on post secondary education, labour force details, industry sector activity, major projects underway, and resources related to living in the Central Okanagan the economic development commission offers a valuable tool for market research. Some highlights from the 2012 Profile: •2011 saw the highest business licence retention rate in the Central Okanagan region at 85.3 per cent (2005-

2011) in the past five years. • CMHC forecasts the Kelowna CMA (Central Okanagan) housing starts to increase 18 per cent in 2012 with a projected median price point of $585,000 for a new single detached home. • Apartment rental rates in 2011 have recorded minimal change for the second straight year. •Construction permits for industrial developments achieved a record in 2011 at over $20 million. Residential permits continued a downward trend to reach a ten-year low in 2009, recovered moderately in 2010, but continued the downward movement in 2011. •The technology, culture and recreation sectors’ employment growth increased 71 per cent from 2007.

with $100,000 in student debt. A friend of mine’s son is going through medical school and expects to have debt higher than this. He is also expecting to graduate and specialize in a field of medicine where his earnings will start at approximately $280,000 per year and where he expects to make $500,000 annually within 10 years. I would say his $100,000 debt is a pretty good investment—and so would my banker. University is the only way to go. A lot of students attend community colleges and technical schools and do just as well as university graduates. Currently, graduates who hold technical certificates and diplomas are in high demand. There really isn’t any good excuse not to get a post-secondary education if you want a rewarding career (not to mention a job you enjoy), good pay and on average better job security.

Introduction of spring is wet and noisy and bright E ven the brassy, bold spring sunflowers currently filling local hillsides with colour drooped Thursday as all of spring’s rainfall took a notion to pour down at once. The heavy, unrelenting rain pooled up on streets, overflowed gutters and storm drains—and even some creek beds. But it is a sign of spring, just as the owl chicks that are finally taking independent forays from their Knox Mountain nest now, and the flickers doing a mating dance just off my deck the other day. They’re probably the same ones doing the territorial drumming on the bit of metal at the top of my roof at 5 a.m.—not one of my favourite signs or sounds of spring. I’m okay with those noisy robins at first light and even the alarm call of the California quail lookout, but the woodpeckers’ drumming on metal is a step over the line—especially when it wakes me from a sound sleep. I also have no sympathy for small mammals requiring large amounts of tender greens to feed their young, especially when it means my young lettuce plants are whittled down to stems by their sharp little teeth. Nor am I impressed

TRAIL MIX

Judie Steeves by the cleverness of Stellar’s jays who have discovered that a dot of green emerging from the dark ground may mean there is a whole pea seed just beneath, that they can steal from me. They, apparently, think it’s clever that the fence, meant to keep the deer from munching my garden down to its roots, doesn’t prevent them from flying over the top and removing even the roots. Oh sure, birds and wild critters are great fun to watch and listen to, but they can also be annoying—especially in spring, after a quiet winter. At least I haven’t had the terrifying experience of at least one Kelowna jogger who crested a rise at the top of Knox Mountain last week and nearly ran smack dab into a grizzly bear. I suppose that grizzly woke up this spring somewhere on top of the Aberdeen Plateau, left the den and found way too much snow still hanging around covering any green shoots he might nibble on.

It’s possible that experience told him there was a greater likelihood he’d find some munchies closer to the lake in the valley bottom, but his arrival has created a bit of a sensation. Hopefully, this rain will help melt the snow up in his part of the wilderness sooner rather than later, and he’ll amble off home again without creating any problems here in the city. Spring also means it’s time to renew licences such as those you need for fishing or hunting. Unfortunately, a couple of young people I know forgot that little detail and went off fishing last weekend. They got caught and instead of buying schoolbooks, they had to put their hard-earned cash into paying tickets. Those taking their toys off-road into wetlands around the Okanagan are warned there will be a concerted effort this spring to catch and charge those damaging the environment with their rubber-tired machines. It will turn out to be an expensive, as well as illegal, recreational activity for them. As well, be warned that mid-elevation lakes are honeycombed with rotten ice at this time of year, so use common

Okanagan mayors talk water, transit and environment Transit, water and environmental permitting topped the agenda at the latest quarterly meeting of the mayors of the Okanagan’s four largest municipalities. The mayors of the the four municipalities, all members of the InterMunicipal Services Advisory Board, meet quarterly to work on common municipal issues. Kelowna Mayor Walter Gray, Vernon Mayor Robert Sawatzky, West Kelowna Mayor Doug Findlater and Penticton Mayor Dan Ashton met

April 20 and discussed the directions to take for 2012. “By continuing to work together, the four municipalities are able to address areas of mutual concern, which will be a benefit to all the citizens of the Okanagan Valley,” said Ashton. During the meeting, the group discussed partnership opportunities with B.C. Transit, which is considering implementing a three-person panel to work with municipalities on planning. The mayors agreed the

larger centres would like to work in tandem with their provincial transit partner, making the panel available to assist smaller centres with planning. The mayors also noted they are looking forward to the Okanagan Basin Water Board’s strategic planning session scheduled for early June, and would call on municipal peers at the coming Southern Interior Local Government Association convention in Revelstoke to offer the OBWB suggestions and recommendations for consideration during its

planning process. At the meeting, Ashton also raised the issue of environmental permitting issues relating to the reconstruction of streamside infrastructure, such as dike systems. It was agreed that Penticton will take the lead on the matter, writing a letter to senior government to review the lengthy and often costly process required before municipalities are able to conduct needed repairs. Gray, Sawatzky, Findlater and Ashton also signed two joint letters at

the meeting. One letter was to B.C. Premier Christy Clark seeking funding support for private landowners for forest fire mitigation. The other was to all member municipalities of the Union of B.C. Municipalities seeking support for a change in UBCM’s allocation of the regional significant project funding under the Gas Tax Agreement, calling for a move from tier two to tier one status. That would allow municipalities more opportunity to pursue projects

that meet individual municipal needs, say the Okanagan mayors. In addition, ongoing concerns that impact the four municipalities were

also discussed, including enforcement of lakeshore zoning regulations and the new RCMP policing agreement for the province.

GARDENING WITH NATURE

Gwen Steele nual Xeriscape Gardening Contest will also be available. The plants for sale are perennials and ornamental grasses. The following are some of what will be on sale. Low growing sedum varieties and hens and chicks (Sempervivum sp.) will grow in extremely dry conditions in sun to part shade. In full sun, blue fescue grass makes a good companion to them. Another dry, full sun combination is the slowly spreading Artemesia ‘Valerie Finnis’ with Nepeta ‘Walker’s Low.’ Its blue

blooms last for several months. Both plants have silver foliage. The large, fuzzy, silvery leaves of giant lambs ears (Stachys ‘Helen von Stein’) provide good contrast in sun or part shade. These and hens and chicks are favourites with children. Native blue bunch wheat grass is great for a wildflower meadow along with showy aster (Aster conspicuous), browneyed susan (Gaillardia aristata), and orange arnica (Arnica fulgens). Long blooming low water plants for full sun include Stella d’Oro daylily (yellow), Echinacea ‘Magnus’ (deep pink), Aster frikartii ‘Monch’ (blue), Gaillardia ‘Burgundy’ (red), and Coreopsis ‘Zagreb’ (yellow). Any of these look good paired with ornamental grasses such as

Calamagrostis ‘Karl Foerster’ (feather reed grass), Andropogon gerardii (big bluestem) or Panicum virgatum (switch grass). The well behaved, butterfly attracting yarrows Achillea ‘Paprika’ (red) and Achillea ‘Terra Cotta’ (orange) will bloom in early summer and again later if deadheaded. They are also good with grasses. For the part shade, dry garden there are Heuchera ‘Palace Purple’ with burgundy leaves and Campanula poscharskyana (Serbian bellflower), a cheery long- blooming, blue ground cover. There are lots of pots of elfin thyme available. It’s the perfect plant to grow in the dry sun between paving stones or to use as a lawn substitute where there is not too much foot traffic.

garden this week, be sure to take time to enjoy the blooms of narcissus, grape hyacinth, and variegated-leaved dwarf tulips. In the rock gardens, the Alyssum montanum ‘Mountain Gold’ is a glo-

rious patch of yellow and the deep pink globes of thrift are beginning to open. The varied foliage colours of sedums, sempervivums and blue fescue provide a great back-

drop for the vibrant early spring colour. Gwen Steele is executive director of the nonprofit Okanagan Xeriscape Association. www.okanaganxeriscape.org

RauDZ Regional Table of Kelowna placed second, while Local of Summerland came third, Bouchon’s Bistro of Kelowna was fourth and Theo’s of Penticton was fifth. In the Best Winery/ Vineyard Dining category, Miradoro at Tinhorn Creek came first, followed by Old Vines Restaurant at Quails’ Gate in West Kelowna, Bacchus Bistro at Domaine de Chaberton on the Lower Mainland, then The Terrace at Mission Hill and finally Vineyard Terrace at CedarCreek Estate Winery, both in Kelowna.

Scam still works

A good Samaritan has an empty wallet after helping a man who turned out to be a hard luck scammer. A 43-year-old Kelowna man was approached by an unidentified white man asking for money to pay a large cab fare, April 24 at 6:15 p.m. “The man claimed that a friend or family member was coming and promised to pay back the cash once they arrived,” said Const. Kris Clark. “The Kelowna man, being a good Samaritan and trying to help out someone in apparent need, gave up his

cash to pay the fare. “When the scammer left to pay the taxi driver, he never returned.” Clark said this offers a reminder to be wary of anyone looking for money, and offered up a nice acronym to keep things on track— SCAM. S—Safe. If you give in, would you be worse off for having done it? C—Credible. Is the person trying to convince you that they are credible without being verified?

A—Aggressive. Is the scammer using an aggressive tactic, or language, that requires an immediate or imperative response? M—Motive. Is their motive to deprive you of money or assets (banking information), typically with a promise of greater reward? “If the answer is ‘yes’ to any of the above questions, then don’t fall for it. If it’s a phone call, simply hang up. If a letter, throw it away. If in person, kindly tell them you’re not interested,” Clark said.

Bunce cited as B.C.’s top player

Marsh cycling for Boys & Girls

Kevin Parnell STAFF REPORTER

It doesn’t take the sting out of failing to win a provincial high school basketball championship over two outstanding seasons at Kelowna Secondary School but standout KSS Owls player Braxston Bunce has been recognized as the best high school basketball player in B.C. Bunce, a 6-foot-11 centre, was named Basketball B.C.’s Outstanding High School Boys Player this week, capping a stellar high school career with one of the biggest individual awards in the sport. “It’s a nice way to cap off my senior year after not winning provincials. I feel like any three of us could have won it,” said Bunce of his fellow nominees which included KSS guard Mitch Goodwin. “They are great players so it’s pretty humbling. But it really doesn’t take any sting away. I would trade an individual award any day for getting the gold medal at provincials.” Bunce and Goodwin are arguably the top basketball tandem to wear Owls colours. It’s rare to have not one, but two players up for a provincial award in basketball. The pair led KSS to two solid years where they were amongst the top basketball teams in B.C. They are now preparing to move on to play more hoops south of the border and possibly for Team Canada. The two have been invited to attend a tryout camp for Team Canada’s Under-18 basketball team on the May long weekend in Toronto.

It’s a team Bunce played on last year and he’s hoping for a return to the national program. “I feel very fortunate I was able to represent my country last year and make the team,” he said. “It was a pretty special experience. As long as I keep working hard I think I will get some more opportunities to represent Canada in the next few years. There’s no way I would ever say no to playing for my country.” Like Goodwin, Bunce’s development is going to continue in the USA. But while Goodwin is going to play in the American prep school system, Bunce is jumping into college, as he will start a NCAA career at Ivy league school Cornell in the fall. “I’m very excited to head down there, it’s going to be a big jump for me with the learning curve,” he said. “Once I get down there I just want to soak up as much as I can and feed off the older players. I’ll need to adjust to playing with older and stronger players. It’s going to be a big jump.” Bunce will graduate from KSS with a straight A average in school and due to his basketball prowess, had several choices of where he wanted to attend college or university. Choosing an Ivy league school was a way to lock down his future after basketball. He says education was the biggest reason he chose Cornell, located in Ithica, New York. “I definitely made my decision based on the education package Cornell brought to me,” he said. “It was pretty unbelievable. It was hard to turn

Field and Canadian mates vie for one chance to get an Olympic berth STAFF REPORTER

There’s no place on earth Marisa Field would rather spend two weeks this summer than London, England. Getting to see Buckingham Palace and Westminster Abby up close will depend on how the 24-year-old Kelowna product and her teammates with the Canadian women’s volleyball squad perform next week at the Continental Olympic Qualifying Tournament in Tijuana, Mexico. The five-day event will feature eight countries from the North American/ Central American region, with just one team earning a berth to the 2012 Olympic Games, July 28 to August 11.

The Canadians, ranked 22nd in the world, will compete in the same pool as Dominican Republic (9th), Puerto Rico (19th), and Honduras (69th). On the other side of the draw is Cuba (10th), Mexico (27th), Costa Rica (28th), and Trinidad and Tobago (34th). Canada opens play Sunday against Puerto Rico. With very little separating the top four teams at the tournament, Field is optimistic about Canada’s prospects of making it to London. “We’re pretty happy with our pool and it’s good to get two tough matches (Puerto Rico and Dominican) in right away, to see where we stand,” said Field, one of three middle blockers on the Canadian

roster. “We’ve been competitive in the past with the top teams, we beat Cuba two years ago in an exhibition match, and we took Dominican to five sets last year at the Pan Ams. As close as the teams are, on any given day, any team can win. We like our chances going in.” In her sixth season with the national program, Field recently returned from Europe and her second year of professional volleyball with the Sinsheim club in Germany. Field then met the rest of the Canadian team in Winnipeg for the start of the pre-tournament camp on April 10. After six hours a day of intense training over a two-week stretch—and years of commitment to the national team—Field

As for the highlights of her career with the Canada’s national senior women’s team, Field counts her appearance at the NORCECA tournament in Puerto Rico in 2009, and the world championships in Japan in 2010 rank right at the top of the list. However, a berth in the Olympics would trump them all. “That’s what it’s all about, what so many athletes dream of, making it to the Olympics,” said Field. “It’s no different for me.” The top team in each pool at the end of round robin play in Mexico receives a bye into the semifinals, while the second and third place teams cross over for the quarterfinals on May 2. The championship match, with a berth in the 2012 Olympics at stake, will be played Saturday, May 5.

feels as ready as she can be for the challenge that awaits. “It’s a huge commitment, there’s been a lot of sacrifice and dedication, and blood and sweat that’s gone into it,” said Field, a graduate of KSS. “But when you get an opportunity to go with this team, I have a lot of really good friends, and four other teammates from UBC, it’s really a special thing. When you have a chance to get to the Olympics, it helps you remember why you put so much into and why everyone has worked so hard.” After graduating from high school, the 6-foot-2 Field played two years at UBC Okanagan for Steve Manuel, before moving on to the UBC Thunderbirds where she turned in three stellar years of competition in Canada West. UBC won the CIS national title in each her last two seasons, with Field being named an all-Canadian in 2009.

Pitches filled with games

After a few years of market turmoil, even the most patient and understanding investors have come to question the wisdom and advice of their current investment advisor. If there was ever a time for a coffee and a second opinion, this is it. Call me now to find out how I can help. Robert Oleksyn, CFA

Kelowna United soccer teams were back in action last weekend, hitting soccer pitches around the area. Here’s a look at the various results from April 21 and 22.

Investment Advisor & Financial Planner Tel: 250-717-2120 robert.oleksyn@nbpcd.com

UNDER-13 GIRLS

Kelowna United’s Under-13 girls defeated Revelstoke 3-0, coming on strong and controlling the game from the start. Angelia Ostrom opened the scoring with assists from Danika Lee and Kiera Baldwin. The girls continued to maintain control of the ball with great passing and Lee scored the second goal of the game with assists from Courtney Peissard and Paige Krivoshein. Peissard added the final goal just before the half, assisted by Paige Krivoshein and Lee.

UNDER-16 GIRLS

The Kelowna U-16 girls played their second league game of the season against the Shuswap Select U16 Girls at the Mission turf field on Sunday morning, defeating Shuswap 5-0. The first half saw the Kelowna girls control the play with excellent passing and strong defence. Casey Loudoun scored the opening goal off a throw-in from Cassidy Collins. In the second half, Kelowna poured on the offense and played solid defense. Victoria DaunceyElwood scored on penalty kick to make the score 2-0 before Loudoun scored two straight and Jill Robertson added the final tally. The Under-16 girls take on the Penticton Pinnacle U16 Girls April 29 at Kings Park in Penticton.

UNDER-11 SAINTS (BOYS)

The Saints dominated the Shuswap Under-11 boys for most of the game, earning a 4-0 win. In the first half Chad Dumka initiated a play from the backline with a pass to Daniel Messent who made a great run on the right flank that ended up with the first goal of the game.

This summer’s festival season looks hot Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

If the smell of patchouli, wafts of sound dancing in the wind and a crowd surging forward, unearthing an inexplicable urge to push toward the front sound familiar, there’s a good chance you’re a summer festival fan. And this is going to be an unusual festival season in Kelowna with a string of new events on the roster, kicking off this Saturday, April 28 with a taster at the Streaming Café dubbed One Night Music Fest. Headlined by awardwinning Vernon musician Cara Luft, the event serves up West Coast singer/ songwriters from the Prairies to the Coast, most from musical families. Luft has just followed her critically acclaimed album, The Light Fantastic, with a new release, Darlingford, named for the small town in Manitoba where much of the recording was done. Once again laying bare personal heartbreak in a string of universally appealing themes, she proves honesty and a willingness to reveal one’s self through art is a formula that can’t be beat. “We all need to know that we’re not alone when we experience difficult circumstance in our lives,” she told the Vernon Morning Star in interview this week. “When I sing these

songs, audiences connect with them on an intimate level.” Luft recorded her last album after leaving the well-known folk trio The Wailin’ Jennys to follow her own path. “The direction (the Jennys) were going was a in a way that didn’t go with mine,” she said. “It was a hard decision… It was toy with fame or fortune or follow what I love to do.” The Light Fantastic, produced by 5440’s Neil Osbourne and featuring Spirit of the West’s multiinstrumentalist Hugh McMillan, proved she had made the right choice, drawing praise from across North America, Europe and the U.K.; although this wasn’t entirely unexpected. Luft grew up with music, playing autoharp and dulcimer in her family’s band before falling in love with the guitar. She moved to the Okanagan at age 20 to take part in a community living program at the Naramata Centre and, after the program was over, made the move to Vernon where she became a familiar face on the music scene. She will be joined on stage this weekend by Andy Shauf, a young singer/songwriter who started playing in bands at the tender age of 14, recording three EPS before turning 20. Influenced by Hayden and Wilco, his latest release, a five-song

vision shows like Royal Pains and the ‘90s hit Felicity and Lamb’s claims to fame include headlining the Midsummer Folk Festival in Smithers and backing a string of prominent acts like the Buffaloswans, Language Arts and Niktex.

After huge successes with The White Stripes, Dead Weather and The Raconteurs, Jack White has finally stepped out for his first solo album. White generally becomes the focus of attention with any act he plays which is why this solo album is greatly anticipated, and he does not disappoint with Blunderbuss. White is probably best described as an alt rocker but here he plays several alt-blues rock songs with a dozen originals and a cool remake of The Blasters’ blue collar gospel rocker I’m Shakin’. The lead single is the high energy Sixteen Saltines which is the most White Stripes-like song here, while my fave track is Freedom Of 21 which sounds like Roy Loney (of Flamin’ Groovies fame, whom The Raconteurs have covered) fronting late ’70s Gang Of Four with its angular, lock-jaw guitar riffs. But what surprised me the most are the three rootsy folk rock songs Hip (Eponymous) Poor Boy, I Guess I Should Go To Sleep and On And On And On that all sound like White has been listening to a lot of ’70s Ronnie Lane solo albums after the breakup of The Faces/ Small Faces, The latter of the three tunes mentioned sounds like it used The Journey from Ogdens Nut Gone Flake as a template.

There are lots of wild swings in White’s approach, none less than the 7/8 time signature for the closing number Take Me With You When You Go that seems to borrow a lot of its impetus from Dave Brubeck’s classic jazz crossover hit Take Five. There is plenty to sink your teeth into on Jack White’s debut solo and all the tunes are short with scads of delightful, dynamic diversions. A solid keeper. B

THINK LIKE A MAN: SOUNDTRACK (EPIC) This box office smash has a fairly predictable soundtrack with “music from and inspired by the film,” meaning some of these songs do not even grace the sliver screen speakers. But this is almost a standard fare soundtrack. There are the new songs from big hit makers, a few so-so tunes from lesser known talents and a couple of oldie evergreens to round things out. The big selling points here include the title track which features big beats behind Jennifer Hudson & Ne-Yo and the midtempo ballad with John Legend on Tonight (Best You Ever Had) that sports a rap from Ludacris. The lesser knowns include Marcus Canty (recently signed by Babyface Reid), Billy Wes and

Brits love River Mitchell from A25 Dutch singer Quatron. The two oldies include Earth Wind & Fires’ superlative That’s The Way Of The World and Luther Vandross’s Never Too Much. Passable urban, makeout music for this mostly all black cast. C+

DRY THE RIVER: SHALLOW BED (RCA) The British press is all over this debut from Mumford & Sons-like nufolk act Dry The River. The group leader is Norway born singer/writer Peter Liddle who has an odd gender neutral voice sort of somewhere between Jon Anderson of Yes and Antony of Antony And The Johnsons. The Brit music trade paper NME is quoted on the add-on sticker to this album saying “genuinely thrilling” but then again the Brit press is always eager to overstate the case. To my ears this is an amalgam of nu-folk with what used to be called progressive rock with some side trips into orchestral pop. The most accessible

tune here is New Ceremony that takes a while to warm up to while producer Peter Katis (The National, Interpol) sometimes puts up a wall of sound that is hard to penetrate. Tunes like Lion’s Den and Weights & Measures had me thinking old King Crimson more so than folk. In spite of the hype, it will be interesting to see if this disc takes off domestically but I think probably not. C+

DOWNLOAD OF THE WEEK Kopek: Love Sick Blues (No, not the Ol’ Hank Williams song). Fans of alt blues such as The White Stripes, Wolfmother and The Kings Of Leon will probably love Kopek, an Irish group who are big stars in the Emerald Isles where they have often opened for U2. Kopek’s album White Collar Lies came out about 18 months ago and bombed but it deserved a far better fate. If you like the first selection you will also like the song Bring It On Home.

Celebrating the importance of friends in our lives I

’m getting stoked up about one of my best birthday presents ever. When my friends at Metro Community decided to hold an outdoor concert on Saturday, May 5, they had no idea I will turn 57 the next day. However, if they had known they could not have planned a better present. Metro has convinced a couple of my dearest friends to come out of ‘retirement’ and perform a special open-air musical concert in downtown Kelowna. In their typical true community caring style, Kelowna’s very own Cruzeros (www.cruzeros.ca) are dusting off their amps in order to assist our city’s homeless people. The event is tagged ‘Freedom Ride,’ a combination of a concert and bicycle/motorcycle ride to raise both funds and awareness of the homeless issue within our community. Freedom Ride is the brainchild of Metro Community, a local faith-based organization that ministers to the marginalized and the homeless. As I’ve written before, when it comes to the realities of assisting those with such challenges, the folks at Metro get it. Freedom Ride begins with road rally registration at 8 a.m. at Metro Central, 1470 Water St. When the riders return, the outdoor celebration—with food, kiosks and the concert—will kick into gear. For more info on the event or to pre-register for the ride and/or concert and lunch go to http:// metrocommunity.ca/ministries/freedom-ride. During a 25-year span together, the Cruzeros toured Canada and abroad releasing three albums, seven videos, and 20 radio singles that hit the charts across Canada and in several countries around the world. The fact their reunion concert is the day before my 57th birthday seems somewhat poignant. There was a time when I never figured I would live this long. Clearly several of my high school classmates figured the same way since they voted me the Grade 11 student least likely to reach age 50. My survival record is only due to the grace of God and helping hands of several folks. There were a few dark

ry Mathers. I wound up managing Barry in one band while running concert light shows for Curtis in another. Within no time a solid friendship had been forged with each of them. After more than a year of pleading, I finally convinced them to meet one another and soon after they joined forces in a band called Sea Cruise. It was the beginning of an amazing bond and friendship between the three of us. After a few years, a variety of different band members, and a couple of name changes, the Cruzeros were created. Along with Gary Smyth, Jay Terrance, Pa Ryan and other talented musicians, the Cruzeros became stars in the Canadian roots and country music industry. Best known for their tremendous harmonies, amazing musicianship, and talented vocals and song writing, the band won multitudes of provincial and national music awards, including several Juno nominations. They also remained

Charlie Hodge years in my youth and young adult days. A part of me was a lost lad who turned to prescription painkillers and non-prescription drugs to eliminate major pain from some injuries. However, the dependency quickly took over and the illegal drugs, prescriptions drugs and hard booze continued to dominate my life well after the excuse of pain was past. Thankfully, some amazing strangers— such as Phyllis Kitson, Herb Sullivan and Harvey Stolz—helped me deal with my anger, pain and energy levels when others had given up. Without their help, I shudder to think where I would be. Not long after I kicked the painkillers and hard booze addictions, I also fortunately met both Curtis Tulman and Bar-

among my very dearest of friends. We went through a lot together—as a band and as individuals. Even when I left town for other work, we kept in constant touch. My world has gone through several ups and downs over the years since we first met, yet Curtis and Barry have always been there for me, and I sincerely mean ‘always.’ Better brothers would be hard to find. When Curtis and Barry hung up their guitars as a team two years ago, it marked the end of a quarter-century playing together. Like several other fans and friends, I had to deal with that change as well—we had been spoiled and were not prepared for it to end. Thankfully, the retirement has worked well for all individuals involved and their friendships never ended. Come the afternoon of May 5, Barry, Curtis, Gary, Jay, Rod Millar and others will step on stage and kick out some of their popular tunes, and

Mount Vernon a ‘spirit’ual place in more ways than one Mary Ann Anderson CONTRIBUTOR

If it looks like scotch whisky, smells like scotch whisky, and tastes like scotch whisky, then it must be scotch whisky, right? Well, sort of. When it’s made in the United States, specifically at George Washington’s Distillery and Gristmill in Virginia near Mount Vernon and not in Scotland, where all scotch comes from, then

it becomes scotch whiskey with an “e.” Again, sort of. The trick in making it more whisky than whiskey involves a few things. The first is the idea itself of making it on U.S. soil, which was the brainchild of David Blackmore, the master brand ambassador for Glenmorangie. This year marks the 100th anniversary of the Scotch Whiskey Association—although scotch whiskey has been around for centuries more than that—and in thinking up a celebratory event to mark the

occasion, the light bulb over Blackmore’s went “ding, ding, ding!” “I thought that we should bring the Scots over to make whiskey here,” says Blackmore. He began talking to a few people, who talked to more people, and before long the idea of producing scotch whisky in America began rolling around like a barrel of, well, whisky. Interjection time for the briefest-of-brief history lessons. In the late 1700s, James Anderson, George Washington’s farm manager, who was

originally from Scotland and a whisky maker at that, talked his boss into getting into the distilled spirits industry. Very long story short, Washington eventually became the largest distiller of corn and rye whiskey in the nation. Now is when the Old World meets the New. Washington’s distillery, painstakingly restored to its 18th century architecture and reopened in 2007, seemed the logical and most historicSee Scotch A29

TRAVEL Scotch from A28 al place to make whiskey into whisky. With the melding of cultures of the Distilled Spirits Council of the United States, the Scotch Whiskey Association, the Scottish government and the Mount Vernon Estate, the distilling began. First of all, a few tons of Scottish malt barley were imported to the distillery, where stoners—the milling kind, not the hippie kind—milled it right on the grounds. Next came another import: a handful of cuter-than-cute Scotsman in kilts, including Glenmorangie’s master distiller Bill Lumsden, Laphroaig’s master distiller John Campbell, and Andy Cant, master distiller for Cardhu Single Malt Distillery and home of Johnnie Walker. On the domestic side and not dressed in a kilt was David Pickerell, the master distiller for the George Washington Distillery, who spent years honing his craft first with Maker’s Mark and now Hillrock Estate Distillery and WhistlePig Rye Whiskey. For three days in late March, these young Scots,

one Kentucky gentleman, and a well-rounded crew from the distillery journeyed back to the 1700s to make scotch whisky the authentic, old-fashioned way with wood-burning fires and copper pots and three-cornered hats. OK, so they occasionally pulled out their Blackberries and Smartphones and iThingies to stay in touch with the modern-day world, but for those three days, they worked to get the recipe just right, nurturing the liquid, measuring it out, taking its temperature and even weighing it. In sampling the first of the liquid, which is a shimmery silver and much like white-lightnin’ before it is aged to a golden hue in Glenmorangie’s American white oak barrels, Lumsden declared with a lip-smacking grin, “Ahhhhh! I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s bloody good.” So how do you get your hands on a bottle of the scotch whisky-without-the-e? (“That’s in honor of our Scotch friends,” says Frank Coleman of DISCUS.) For the time being, you don’t. In following the rules of the Scotch Whiskey Association, the

whisky must be aged in barrels for at least three years. You can’t even peek at the barrels, says Pickerell, who when pressed about where they are stored, merely gives a sly smile and says, “In an undisclosed location.” But three years from now, you might have, say, a one-in-a-gazillion shot—a literal and figurative shot—at tasting the whisky, as the first hundred bottles, the first scotch ever to come out of the distillery at Mount Vernon, will, according to Coleman, be auctioned for charity around the world. While you may not ever see or taste the

whisky, you can still see the distillery and how whiskey was made in Washington’s time. “The still is primarily an education exhibition by seeing how whiskey was made 200 years ago,” says Dennis Pogue, the vicepresident for preservation at Mount Vernon Estate. He added that the story of making scotch on the property “really resonates” because of the connection between the American and Scotland. “The bonds of friendship between the two nations go back a long way,” says Robyn Naysmith, See Scotch A30

The Next Great Escape Rob Beintema CONTRIBUTOR

CONTRIBUTED

CANADIAN automotive journalists took to the streets of San Francisco to explore early offerings of the brand new 2013 Ford Escape, the latest third generation version of Ford’s bestselling compact crossover SUV.

SAN FRANCISCO, Ca.: I wanted to slip the line “Escape From Alcatraz” into the story somehow, but couldn’t quite figure out how to do it, even as the infamous prison lurked in sight across the bay, during our 2013 Ford Escape debut drive along the streets of San Francisco. So instead, maybe we should just concentrate on this latest version of Ford’s popular compact SUV, an all-new interpretation that just might be the next great Escape. Escape has been a mainstay in the Ford lineup for the past decade, a bestseller with unflagging sales numbers. It was one of Ford’s first crossovers but, playing to a more conservative audience back in the SUV glory days, its profile always paid tribute to two-

box trucky design origins. Until now, that is. It takes a lot of guts to fix something that ain’t broke, but the new look of the 2013 Escape was first explored in the 2011 Vertrek concept. The production version that debuted a year later stayed 80 per cent true to the Euro-designed concept, bumping the old boxy shape with a faster rake, a smoother aerodynamic profile and new sweeping lines. In China, Europe and other world markets, the Escape will be sold as the Ford Kuga. If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery then, yes, you could argue that other car companies should feel quite complimented. We could compare the Escape rear with Hyundai Tucson or other competitors, and study the similarities of Mitsubishi’s “Sabre jet air intake” styl-

Escape design trends mirroring cars rather than trucks Escape from B1 ing with Ford’s new front end. But, within the Ford lineup itself, you can fol-

low this styling trend more directly through the Fiesta and, especially, the new Focus, mirroring both the exterior and interior treatments of the new 2013 Es-

cape. The new Escape is an inch or two longer, wider and lower. More importantly, its new shape and dimen-

sions were designed to add a little more room along with the sleeker styling, save money in fuel economy, upgrade comfort and performance, and add

a wealth of new available technologies. The combination of carried-over and new available technologies include:

• A hands-full and handsfree power liftgate that borrows X-Box motion capture technology used in today’s video ga mes. • SYNC with MyFord

2.0-litre Ecoboost offers a little more snap of the line and passing power. The base 2.5-litre engine was not available for testing at the vehicle launch but with comparable fuel efficiency numbers and the attractive entry price, I think it would be worth a look. The new Escape handles well. Electric power steering can sometimes feel numb and somewhat disconnected but the Escape’s steering felt sporty and communicative. Ford was not shy about making that point on a test route complete with high-speed sweepers and grueling mountain road corners. The EPAS steering system has been bolstered by the Escape’s handling technologies and, with a renewed emphasis on NVH control, made for an excellent driving experience. We’ll look closer at the individual models and powertrains in future but the 2013 Ford Escape coming to market this late spring promises to be a worthy follow-up to North America’s bestselling SUV, raising the bar even higher with new exclusive features, technologies and fuel economy levels designed as a new benchmark for competitors in its segment. Yes, the 2013 Ford Escape is quite possibly a great Escape.

Highlander: something for everyone Toyota has always done an excellent job of having something for everyone in its model lineup. Take the 2012 Highlander mid-size crossover SUV as an example. For those who have fuel economy at the top of their wish list, Toyota offers a four-cylinder version as well as a gas-electric hybrid in the Highlander. And for those who haul a heavier trailer or boat to the cottage or for anyone wanting more power and performance, a four-wheel drive V6 model is also available in different trim levels. In short, Toyota has all the bases covered. Prices start at $31,675 for the base Highlander, however my recent tester was a top-of-the-line Highlander 4WD V6 Limited with all the bells and whistles. It priced out at $46,845 including freight and PDI. The Highlander Hybrid starts at $42,990. The variety of trim levels and the versatility they offer has made the Highlander one of the most popular crossover SUVs in the segment. It has been on the market since 2000 and has grown in size and seating capacity since then. It now seats seven, up from the five-passenger configuration when it first debuted. Toyota offers a choice of two powerful, yet efficient engines in the Highlander. Base engine is a 2.7-litre DOHC 16-valve four cylinder that delivers 187 hp and up to 186 lb/ ft of torque. It has a towing capacity of 1,587 kg (3,500 lb), yet achieves a

Toyota Highlander can be outfitted to suit your needs Toyota from B5 torque. This engine offers a towing rating of 2,268 kg (5,000 lb) and has a combined city/highway fuel economy rating of 10.9L/100 km. The four-cylinder engine is mated with a sixspeed automatic transmission, while the V6 models come with a five-speed automatic. All Highlander models have seating for seven. There are buckets up

front and a 40/20/40 split second row with a removable centre seat that stows easily. The 50/50 split thirdrow bench has minimal legroom, although the second row seats do move fore and aft to provide a bit more room. The rear seat folds flat with a remote release conveniently located in the cargo area. This increases the cargo capacity from a meager 291 litres (10.3

cu ft) to 1,197 litres (42.3 cu ft). With the second and third rows folded, the cargo capacity is 2,701 litres (95.4 cu ft). Inside, you can outfit the Highlander in a variety of ways.

camera, nine-speaker premium JBL audio system with XM satellite radio, Bluetooth capability and a four-disc CD changer among other features. The cabin has nice fit and finish with lots of soft touch materials and a nicely textured dash panel. The ergonomics from a driverπs perspective is good with knobs and buttons all within easy reach. On the road, the Highlander shines with solid driving dynamics and a stable feel on hard cornering. A short 11.8 metre (38.7 ft) turning circle allows you to maneuver it easily in tight parking situations. The electric power steering is light and the ride and handling are good for a 1,960 kg (4,321 lb) vehicle. The V6 model accelerates briskly (0-100 km/h in under eight seconds), and unless fuel economy is top of mind, opt for this powertrain for better overall performance. There was no need for it this winter, but the four-wheel drive system is welcome when, or if, inclement weather strikes or the desire to off-road overwhelms you in cottage country. Four-wheel drive is offered on the upscale models with the base Highlander model getting front-wheel drive. Being a Toyota, there are host of standard safety features called the Toyota Star Safety System. Included are vehicle stability control, ABS with electronic brake force distribution and brake assist, traction control, Smart Stop Technology plus sev-

en airbags for driver and passengers. Where the Highlander comes up short in my opinion is exterior styling. Unlike the extremely attractive Toyota Venza, the Highlander has a somewhat bland, unexciting look that doesnπt stand out from the crowd. Thatπs unfortunate because the Highlander has so much going for it. While it has always been a strong seller, more dynamic styling would make it even more of an attractive buy. Perhaps the next generation will have more pizzazz, but until then there will still be plenty of customers who will ante up to buy what has become a leader in the midsize crossover SUV class because of its versatility,

family friendliness and top-notch road manners.

Self-driving car in Cadillac’s future

‘Super cruise’ technology could be ready by mid-decade. Cadillac is road testing a semi-autonomous technology it calls “Super Cruise” that is capable of fully automatic steering, braking and lane-cen-

tering in highway driving under certain optimal conditions. The system could be ready for production vehicles by mid-decade. Super Cruise is designed to ease the driver’s workload on the freeway, in both bumper-tobumper traffic and on long

road trips by relying on a fusion of radar, ultrasonic sensors, cameras and GPS map data. Many of the building block technologies for Super Cruise are already available on the allnew 2013 Cadillac XTS and ATS luxury sedans, as part of the available Driv-

er Assist Package. It is the first Cadillac system to use sensor fusion to provide 360 degrees of crash risk detection and enhanced driver assist features, including: • Rear automatic braking • Full-speed range adaptive cruise control • Intelligent brake assist

• Forward collision alert • Safety Alert Seat • Automatic collision preparation • Lane departure warning • Side blind zone alert • Rear cross traffic alert • Adaptive forward lighting • Rear vision camera with dynamic guidelines

• Head up display The key to delivering semi-autonomous capability will be the integration of lane-centering technology that relies on forward-looking cameras to detect lane markings and GPS map data to detect curves and other road characteristics.

Acura reinvents entry-level luxury CONTRIBUTOR

Phoenix, Az.: It’s back to the future for Acura with the 2013 ILX sedan. In 1996 Acura Canada came up with the EL that was really an enhanced Honda Civic but it marked what was probably the first entry-level luxury car on the market. Not sold in the U.S., Canadians embraced the EL the same way they did back a decade earlier with the 1986 Legend, the first Japanese luxury car. In the first year almost 9,000 ELs were sold and that stayed constant until about 2002 as sales started falling away due to growing competition from other makers. Acura tried to counter with the EL’s replacement, the CSX, in 2005 but it was already being outpaced by cars such as the Lexus IS, Audi A3 and BMW 1 Series. Acura is currently undergoing a huge makeover to reposition itself, not just in the market, but in the minds of luxury car intenders with a whole new suite of cars such as the fabulous NSX supercar and the topline RL sedan. But the first of these vehicles will be the 2013 ILX that is expected to account for up to 20 per cent of projected Acura sales. All forecasts predict the entry-level luxury segment is about to explode driven primarily by GenY/Xers and Boomers who want to move up and downsize respectively. What they want is a balance of luxury and performance that also projects an image about the owner as being technologically hip as well as environmentally respon-

sible. And that’s just what Acura says it is going to deliver with the ILX. Just so Acura has its demographic bases covered, there will be three separate models each with its own engine. Accounting for a bulk of sales will be the base ILK 2.0 ($27,790), ILX 2.0 Premium ($29,990) and ILX 2.0 Technology ($32,290) powered by a 2.0-litre SOHC inline fourcylinder producing 150 hp and 148 lb/ft of torque with a fuel consumption rating of 8.6/5/6L/100 km city/highway. It has a fivespeed automatic transmission. The sporty ILX 2.4 Dynamic ($29,900) comes with a 2.4-litre DOHC inline four-cylinder with only a six-speed manual transmission. It produces 201 hp and 170 lb/ft of torque with a fuel rating of 9.8/6.5L/100 km city/highway. The third variant is the ILX Hybrid ($34,990) with a 1.5-litre SOHC inline four-cylinder and CVT transmission. With 91 hp from the engine and 20 hp from the electric motor the Hybrid has 110 hp (combined) and 127 lb/ft of torque. Fuel consumption is listed as 5.0/4.8L/100 km city/ highway. The battery pack is lithium-ion. The front coil springs over MacPherson struts and rear multi-link rear with coil springs were specially developed for the ILX and feature Amplitude Reactive Dampers. They allow the car to operate in Ride Zone or Handling Zone. Each “zone” has a unique set of compression and rebound damping set-

THE 2013 ILX marks Acura’s intent to reclaim the entry-level luxury sedan segment. It is available in three models each with its own engine and transmission. CONTRIBUTED

In an under-steering scenario, engine braking is used while braking is applied to the inside wheels. The ILX is bigger than the EL/CSX it replaces and is heavier as well. With a fairly long wheelbase (105.5 inches) for the class and a wide stance, the ILX feels much more substantial too. Sight lines forward are good but that has always been a Honda/ Acura forte. But with the high deck, backing up can be an issue. Premium and Technology ILX models feature a multi-view rearview camera that offers a choice of top view, normal view or wide view. Speaking of the high deck needed for the trunk, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s big too at 350 litres (12.3 cu ft) and able to swallow three golf bags, two large suitcases, a large cooler or a wheelchair. Because of the battery pack being located behind the rear seat, the ILX Hybrid cargo space is 265 litres (10.0 cu ft). I spent all my driving time in an ILX Premium. The five-speed automatic comes with paddle shifters and can operate in sequential manual mode. I never use these things but for many, it adds to the fun of driving. There were a lot of twisty roads north of Phoenix where the press launch was held. Road holding was solid and predicable. I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t remember the last time I drove a CSX but I do recall it was nimble and maybe more so than the ILX. On the other hand, the ILX does ride and feel like a luxury car which was not the case with the CSX. One thing that stood out was the quietness inside especially at highway speeds. One look at the body and it is easy to see how slick it is to cut as much power leaching drag as possible. But thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more to it than that. There is a spoiler on the lower edge of the front fascia to reduce lift and drag along with a full bumper cover that lessens the drag of the front tires. Located just ahead of the front and rear wheels are special aero strakes to help move air smoothly around the tires, reducing side aerodynamic drag. To smooth airflow underneath the ILX, an undercover panel starts

behind the front fascia, extends under the engine, transmission (excluding 2.4-litre), cabin and fuel tank (only on 2.4-litre), while also covering the open space behind the rear suspension and beneath the trunk. The Hybrid gets a rear deck spoiler that results in lower aerodynamic drag and improved stability at higher speeds. Lastly, the ILX Premium and Technology Package come with Active Noise Control. What this does is take low-end drivetrain frequencies entering the cabin and then sends out a precisely timed reverse phase audio signal to cancel it out. The result is a reduction in booming exhaust sound as well as road noise. Overall, an impressive 10 dB reduction in unwanted noise is attained. Space means I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t list all the optional extras, and they are many, but standard equipment includes a Keyless Access System, five-inch colour central display, dual-zone automatic climate control, six-speaker audio system, SMS text messaging feature, Bluetooth HandsFreeLink cellular telephone and music interface and more. As noted, Acura is coming out of its shell with a host of new products that it hopes will reinstate the brand as a leader in performance and luxury. The 2013 ILX combines what Acura calls its new man-machine synergy making it surely the harbinger of this change and portends good things to come.

Muoi loved her time serving customers at Mizu and enjoyed seeing friends and regular customers whom she greeted with a warm smile. She was fond of trips to Vancouver to visit her children and vacations to Lethbridge to visit family. Her generous spirit and loving character will always be remembered. The family would like to thank her doctors for all their help; Doctors Pasenau, Davies, Carter, Wall, Solano, the staff at the BCCA and the nurses at the KGH.

Eleven 70 Brant

ood things often arrive in sought after places. Eleven 70 Brant has the mid-Kelowna location that makes living easy and Energy Star homes designed for modern lifestyles. Eleven 70 Brant is a neighborhood of 18 city homes built around a quiet, custom cul-de-sac, a simple concept with deep resonance for buyers looking for long-term value. The first eight homes at Eleven 70 Brant will be ready mid-July and have just come onto the market. Now is the time to explore an attainable home that can be loved for the long term.

G

Eleven 70 Brant has been developed and is being built by the same Gold Tommie Award winning team behind GlenValley on Clifton. Many of the most popular elements from GlenValley have been brought forward to Eleven 70 Brant, including geothermal heating and cooling, ultra-high quality sound dampening and construction values and three bedroom two and a half bathroom floor plans. The architecture at Eleven 70 Brant has modern inverted pitch rooflines, and a clean linear visual aesthetic.

The primary floor plan available is a three bedroom two and a half bath city home in either a two storey or a split-level version. Each home features a double car,

covered carport and fully fenced backyard with privacy screening.

At 1,393 square feet the two storey town home has an open concept main floor with a kitchen, dining and living room. The kitchen has a large connected island with enough space for up to four people to sit bar style for breakfast. The kitchen also has a large step-in pantry with more than enough storage to satisfy the needs

of a family. There is also additional storage space on the main floor built into the mechanical room. Upstairs in the two storey model is the master bedroom with a full walk-in closet and ensuite bathroom. Immediately adjacent to the master suite is a comfortably sized laundry room and linen closet. The location of the laundry room is separate enough for family use, but perfect for a couple without children who want easy access to the space. There are two generously sized secondary bedrooms and a full bathroom on the top floor. The split level floor plan makes use of it’s slightly larger square footage (1,624 square feet) with extra space in the kitchen, a separate storage room and larger entry way. The kitchen has an island with both the sink and dishwasher and countertop space for prep work. There is a generous walk in pantry too. Upstairs in the split-level homeowners will enjoy the same spacious master suite, with large walk in closet and ensuite. The two secondary bedrooms enjoy large windows and enough floor space for small children through to teenagers or guests. Every home at Eleven 70 Brant comes with natural

gas on-demand tankless hot water systems and is heated and cooled with geothermal technology. These homes deliver long-term energy value and energy cost certainty for the owner. The green value at Eleven 70 Brant continues with lowE, double glazed, thermally isolated windows. The quality standard for appliances is excellent, all kitchen appliances are EnergySTAR rated and as an added bonus,

Interest rates will eventually rise. It’s inevitable. Financial stress now seems a permanent feature of the global economy. Will China’s economy stall? Will Europe’s debt problems worsen? Can the United States address its debt problems and get its economy going again? These are all open-ended questions that suggest there’s a chance interest rates will need to stay low for now, but that won’t last forever. So how can you prepare yourself when interest rates do start to go up. Borrowing means you can’t afford the stuff you’re buying. Borrowing is okay when buying houses and cars because few of us can pay cash for such large expenses. But using a line of credit to finance your lifestyle is like living on other people’s money. Cutting debt gives you a buzz. Paying off a five-year car loan three years early will definitely make you feel good. As well, try taking your tax refund and using it to pay down your debt. Stop contributing to your RRSP for one year and use the money to lower your debt. Realize that your next mortgage renewal could be scary. People who bought homes in the past couple of years have benefited from historically low mortgage rates. As recently as last month, five-year fixed rate mortgages were available with a three per cent interest rate. That compares with an average of roughly 4.5 per cent over the past decade, up to a high of about 5.5 per cent. Use the Globeinvestor.com calculator to look at scenarios showing how much more your mortgage will cost if you renew at higher rates (http://tgam.ca/DKA7). And don’t think that future pay increases will help you afford larger mortgage payments. Big raises are scarce these days and if you get one, you’re not going to want to see it eaten up by your mortgage. Your kids need help affording university. Parents are not saving enough in registered education savings plans. Cut debt and you have some free cash flow you can put into a regular monthly RESP contribution plan. Get more control of your financial situation prior to retirement. Reduce your debts, increase your retirement savings. The more you save for retirement, the less likely it is that you’ll have to continue working in some capacity after you turn 65 to generate income. And don’t retire with debt. People over the age of 45 are among the biggest debt fiends in the country. A financially secure retirement starts with zero debt. People without debts are better able to afford a health or dental emergency, a basement flood, a leaky roof or a major car-repair bill. Pay off a debt and use the monthly payments you were making to build up an emergency fund. Remember, there’s no downside to paying off debt. No one has ever said: “I really regret paying off my debts.” There’s always other uses for the money you save.

SHOWCASE W GLEN VALLEY

Townhomes cutting edge for energy efficiency Bobbi-Sue Menard CONTRIBUTOR

The Glen Valley townhome development on Clifton Road in Kelowna has been consistently attracting notice from home buyers. Glen Valley was a winner at the 2011 Tommie Awards, achieving the gold in Excellence in Creating Affordable Housing and Excellence in Semi-Detached or Townhome Development. Today, multiple buildings are under construction and new owners are moving in weekly to their new homes. It is easy to talk about sustainable value, but the proof is in the testing and buyers are noticing. Each of the 86 forward thinking designed city townhomes has achieved an EnergyStar designation. The mix of floor plans is combined with a quality set of finishing materials that come standard. The careful planning has resulted in an ultra competitive price point, all the way to $169,900 for garden style townhomes for the buyer who wants more than a condominium can offer. Buyers are able to trust the green value at GlenValley. Each of the townhomes have been individually tested by accredited independent experts. The results of the testing, including the ‘blower door’ test, show each Glen Valley home has earned an Energuide rating of up to 86.

THE GLEN VALLEY townhomes are located on Clifton Road in Kelowna (top photo) and feature an energy efficient interior design coupled with other features such as geothermal heating, hardwood floors and stainless steel kitchen appliances. CONTRIBUTED

This qualifies GlenValley for the EnergyStar rating, the best way to guarantee an energy efficient home. Each townhome has been carefully constructed for air tightness and quality of insulation. The sustainability is continued in the mechanical system of each home. Glen Valley offers individual geothermal systems administered and maintained by FortisBC for each townhome, offering a set monthly heating and cooling cost. There is natural gas to each townhome for the on-demand hot water systems that can cut a hot water heating bill in half.

To take advantage of the natural gas, the kitchens operate a dual fuel gas range and electric oven, plus there is a natural gas outlet on the deck for barbecues. “We wanted to maximize every sustainable feature without compromising quality,” explained Pat Klassen, with Points West Realty Group. “Even on the details you can’t see but make a big difference to how you enjoy your home, we’ve planned and put in the features that will make a homeowner comfortable.” The sound proofing is a shining example of good planning leading to

happy homeowners. The double layer walls have extra thickness in the drywall with a one inch gap and offset studs so sound does not travel between the walls. There are engineered wood flooring joists to cut down on vibration and create quiet living spaces. The finishing at Glen Valley is consistent and high quality for every single home. In a drive to eliminate the dreaded process of homeowners needing to price in upgrades to add to their purchase price, Glen Valley offers quality engineered hardwood, and tile flooring as standard. A complete stainless

steel kitchen appliance suite plus front load washer and dryer, built-in vacuum and deep two inch

aluminum blinds are also standard. Klassen says it is buyers who are looking for a

complete home package
