KELOWNA ROCKETS have traded their scoring leader for the past two seasons to Saskatoon Blades for 18-year-old centre Ryan Olsen.

THE NEW general manager hired this week for the Rotary Centre for the Arts is being sued for misappropriation of funds by her last employer, The Art Gallery of Calgary.

elowna masters soccer player Walter Morel wasn’t actually on the field when a teammate of his suf-fered a heart attack at City Park during a game of over-45 soccer last month. Morel himself was suffering from an asthma attack and had decided not to play, instead watched from the sidelines so as not to miss out on the social aspect of the weekly game. But that was when his teammate was struck by a sudden heart attack, dropping on the field in need of emergency assistance. “I saw him fall out of the corner of my eye,” recalled Morel. “I watched him hit the ground. Luckily we had a firstaid attendant and a doctor on the team and they immediately started doing CPR.” It would take the arrival of two ambulances and more emergency CPR before life returned to his fallen teammate, who was rushed to hospital and later released to go home. The incident would stick with Morel and the rest of his team for much longer. “It took me two days to get to sleep,” he said. “I just kept hearing him hit the ground and hearing the air expelling from his lungs when he hit. It gets you thinking. We’re all these weekend warriors and we like to think we’re in shape but the body is telling us something different.” See story on A3.

Aging athletes need to minimize injury risk

from A1 Morel and the rest of his over-45 soccer teammates are no different than thousands of other masters athletes; those weekend warriors who jump from work or family life into a recreational sport. Most players have suffered injuries along the way. Most of those injuries are more moderate such as muscle strains or general pain and stiffness. More rare is the serious heart attack that struck Morel’s teammate. But health experts say the benefits of continuing to play sports far outweigh the negatives. “All the science out there shows that exercise is beneficial, especially as you age,” said Randy Goodman, of Pinnacle Physiotherapy. “If you look at risk and reward, the reward of being active and involved

as you age far outweighs the risk.” ••• One of the founders of Big White ski hill, former MLA Cliff Serwa certainly knows the benefits of athletics. Now 76, Serwa still plays recreational basketball in Kelowna once a week and will play up to three times a week when he vacations in Palm Springs. Recently, Serwa started dabbling in a new recreation, jumping on a motorbike and touring around the Okanagan. “Busy people are happy people I think,” said Serwa, prior to heading out for 18 holes on the golf course. “I like challenges and I enjoy learning something new. The one thing I’ve noticed about people who participate in athletics is you can learn a lot through athletics. You spend thousands of hours

trying to improve. “Nothing comes easy. You learn about teamwork and the ability to focus.” During his 10-year stint as an MLA while in Victoria, Serwa also used athletics as a way to relieve stress and to make things happen. An MLA of the Social Credit Party at the time, Serwa took part in regular basketball games at the legislature, featuring members of all political parties including thenpremier Mike Harcourt. The NDP at the time were considering a location for a new cancer unit, trying to decide whether it would be located in Kelowna or Kamloops. Serwa used those basketball games as a way to build relationships and make friends, even in the cutthroat world of B.C. politics. The basketball court became a place where

DOUG FARROW/CONTRIBUTOR

FORMER KELOWNA MLA Cliff Serwa maintains a healthy lifestyle by playing basketball once a week and going for road rides on his new touring motorbike. political affiliation was thrown out the window. Serwa made friends with Harcourt and the NDP would bring the cancer clinic to Kelowna. “The New Democrats made the decision that it would come to Kelowna,” he said.

Proper hydration key to easing aches and pains Contrary to what you might think if you observe the actions of sports teams following adult sports, drinking beer is not a proper way to hydrate following athletics. In fact, alcohol will continue the process of dehydration following your sport and could contribute to stiffness and general soreness. Proper hydration before and after an event is key to the body’s recovery. So add this routine to your preand post-game activity for better results: • Two to three hours prior to

exercise: Drink 500/750 ml (two to threecups) of fluids. This allows enough time for fluid to be lost through urine • 30 minutes before exercise: Drink 125-250 ml (1/2 to 1 cup) of fluids. There is no benefit to drinking more than this • During exercise: Drink 125-250 ml of cool fluids every 15 minutes. This is about five to 10 gulps of fluid • After exercise: Drink 2 1/2 cups of fluid for every pound lost during exercise. This usually means at least four cups of fluid

• Quenching thirst does not satisfy the body’s need for fluid: Thirst is a sign of dehydration. A small volume of urine dark in colour indicates dehydration • Cool water is best for events one hour or less or for light activity • Beverages with six to eight per cent carbohydrate plus some sodium are beneficial for moderate to heavy exercise, especially if lasting longer than one hour. Commercial sports drinks are formulated to deliver the proper mix of carbohydrates and electrolytes.

“Part of it was the establishment of my credibility through the friendship we made on the basketball court. They were able to talk to me and I was able to talk to them, not as New Democrats or Socreds but as friends.” The social aspect of masters athletics might be the single biggest factor in why so many people still take part in adult sports. Ask those folks why they play and the time spent after the game socializing would be at the top of a lot of people’s lists. But it’s that focus on fun instead of some simple preparation that lands many people in a physio clinic with pulled muscles. “Part of the problem is you see someone playing a recreational sport and

they are late getting there or are running in from work,” said Pinnacle’s Goodman. “They drive into the parking lot, pull on their shoes and jump into the game right away. Pretty soon they have a blown hamstring.” Goodman says a simple 10 minute dynamic warm-up to raise your heart rate would alleviate many of the problems weekend warriors run into. “You’ve been sitting around all day so you need to give your body a chance,” he said. “A lot of injuries are preventable. Make sure you’re hydrated so you don’t get cramps. Make sure you warm up so that you minimize the risk of injuries. “If you do get hurt you need to get to someone

who knows what they are doing to help you manage the injury as well as possible. “The longer you delay the harder it gets to rehab.” Goodman says serious injuries such as the heart attack suffered by the over-45 soccer league player, are in the minority, although each year there are serious injuries suffered by masters athletes. But he cites the more positive benefits. “Generally those people who suffer a heart attack during sports were going to have a heart attack anyways,” said Goodman. “Regular exercise decreases the risk of heart attack, stroke and high blood pressure.

“It decreases the risk of diabetes and obesity which leads to a bunch of other diseases. If you keep active and keep your mind active you are going to see positive effects.â€? ••• A couple of weeks after Walter Morel’s teammate was rushed to hospital after collapsing during his team’s over-45 soccer game, his teammate was out of hospital and back on the sidelines, watching his team play. It was a health scare that sent a ripple effect through many of the players on the team, some of whom were playing on two different soccer teams, both at the over-45 and over-55 level. “It makes you think,â€? said Morel. “Some of us were wondering whether we should still exert ourselves. As bad as

it was, it was an eye opener.� Still the draw of being among good friends and getting a good workout is what keeps masters sports going. “I’ve been playing soccer since I was 10 years-old,� said Morel. “It’s the camaraderie. It’s just part of your life, part of your routine. Then, you know, it’s an excuse to go for a beer after the game. If we didn’t play a lot of us wouldn’t be working out. It’s a good thing.� Goodman agreed adding that athletes who help themselves will have longer recreational careers. “Take 10 minutes to warm-up and 10 minutes to cool down,� he said. “You’re standing around talking with people anyhow so why not stretch. “I think masters sports is a huge positive to the community. It’s also a thing called enjoyment. It’s way more fun to go out and do something than to sit and watch it on TV.�

trails new general manager Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

The woman slated to become the new general manager of the Rotary Centre for the Arts is being sued over allegedly misappropriating funds from her last employer, The Art Gallery of Calgary. Late Thursday afternoon, stories from Fast Forward Magazine revealed Valerie Cooper, the former president and CEO of the Art Gallery of Calgary, a public art gallery run by a non-profit organization, is being sued by the gallery to retrieve $500,000 in falsified expenses. The article indicates affidavits with The Court of the Queen’s Bench in Alberta state the gallery is suing for $185,129 for art work and gallery services purchased that cannot be

adequately traced; nearly $67,000 in travel expenses the AGC board of directors claims it did not approve; and over $19,000 worth of massages, monthly parking, credit card fees, home maintenance and clothing allegedly purchased by the gallery for Cooper without the gallery’s knowledge. According to earlier articles from the magazine, Cooper took over the gallery in 2004 with only $50 in its accounts and a mounting pile of bills and appeared to be turning its fortunes around— although not without controversy. The 2008 article reveals a series of alleged problems with artists, curatorial and administrative staff, largely pegging Cooper as one to put profits before the gallery’s purpose and alleging some art

had been damaged under her tenure. As of Wednesday, the magazine only had an article stating Cooper left her position this past March without explanation, four years into a five-year contract. But Thursday afternoon it had obtained AGC board chair Gwen Randall’s affadavit alleging Cooper charged the gallery for $12,126 worth of artwork for her own condo and the $89,250 to rent for the condo space—plus $185,129 of “fictitious framing.� The affidavit reportedly details a nonexistent loan repayment to the tune of $124,000. The Rotary Centre for the Arts is a city-owned facility, but no one at the City of Kelowna was aware the new manager was facing the lawsuit. “We were not aware

of this situation until the Capital News forwarded the story from the Calgary Herald,� said Tom Wilson, City of Kelowna communications supervisor. “If the news story is correct, it could be a really unfortunate setback for the RCA, which has been through a traumatic time in the last five months and was poised to move forward in a positive direction. “We don’t want to comment further until we’ve had a chance to discuss this with the board of directors and its hiring committee,� Efforts to contact the board of directors for the Rotary Centre for the Arts went unanswered at press deadline. The previous person to hold the position, Tracie Ward, recently passed away from cancer.

Local connection to Revelstoke vehicle theft A trail of evidence from a theft in Revelstoke has led Mounties to the Central Okanagan. “An estimated $100,000 worth of equipment is still outstanding from a recovered a truck and trailer that was stolen out of Revelstoke last week and recovered in West Kelowna yesterday,� said Const. Kris

Clark, noting much of the gear missing would be emblazoned with a Flow World Freestyle Festival logo. The White Ford F350 with Idaho plates went missing April 25 at 3 a.m., pulling a 28-foot Charmac enclosed trailer was stolen from the back parking lot of the Revelstoke Sandman Hotel.

“Video surveillance showed two men and a possible suspect vehicle associated to the theft,� said Clark. A 2008 Camo coloured Polaris snowmobile, computer, photography and video equipment, along with a vast array of tools, clothing, climbing gear and snowboarding equipment remains outstanding.

STAFF REPORTER

What would you do if floods or fire threatened your home? It’s a question city officials want Okanagan residents to ask themselves as they head into Emergency Preparedness Week, which runs from May 6 to 12. “Talk with your family. Ask, ‘What would we do, or how would we get in touch if there was an emergency?’” said Jason Brolund, regional emergency program coordinator, pointing out it’s not unheard of for a crisis to strike. In 2003, 30,000 Kelowna residents were evacuated from their homes. Even last year, a West Kelowna fire sent locals into the care of emergency services. It’s an unfortunate occurrence that’s made locals more crisis-savvy.

Lake debris a headache for yacht club Alistair Waters ASSISTANT EDITOR

More debris than usual is washing into Okanagan Lake thanks to a mixture of the warmer weather, the annual spring runoff, last week’s torrential rain and the subsequent flooding it caused. As a result, the larger amount of lake debris has prompted the Central Okanagan Regional District to issue a warning to boaters to be on the lookout for logs, debris and deadheads floating on, or just below, the water’s surface. “At this time of year, Central Okanagan residents are asked to use caution around all local water

bodies,” said CORD spokesman Bruce Smith. “Creeks and streams throughout the Central Okanagan have slightly receded, since last week’s isolated flooding. However, while water levels are lower, there’s a lot of debris that has made its way into Okanagan Lake from area water courses.” Jim Kay, general manager of the Kelowna Yacht Club, said the debris is playing havoc at his facility’s marina. Logs, branches and other shoreline material has been floating into the yacht club marina and getting into boat props, as well as clogging up the marina’s

Okanagan’s

Open Sunday’s 10-6

alleyways. Currently, the KYC has about 400 boats berthed at its marina, about half the total number it can handle. The problem also has the marina trying to figure out how to design a piece of equipment to act as a huge skimmer to help capture the debris at the marina. “We are scratching our heads trying to come up the right tool to do the work,” said Kay, adding the debris problem in the lake is as bad as anyone there can remember it being. Smith said while the regional district and area municipalities have received calls about the lar-

ger amount of debris floating in the lake, there is little that can be done until water levels recede. And he warned the situation will likely get worse before it gets better. “There is still a lot of snowpack (water) to come down yet,” said Smith. He said usually CORD advises that debris washed down from creeks into the lake, and the debris pulled off the lake shore by rising water levels and shoreline erosion, be left to wash up and stay in place so it can help reduce further erosion during the high-water period. It can then be removed when lake and stream water levels drop later in the summer.

To the editor: According to studies, 25 per cent of any population supports authoritarianism such as excessive police enforcement. Tom Maxted (Police Must Take Report of Any Kind of Gun Seriously, May 1 Capital News) denies the fact that police are routinely busting kids for playing with toy guns. Moreover, he believes that all taxpayers expect police to do so. He thinks that the gangster killed in Kelowna was the exclusive target, as if he knows something police, media and the public don’t know. He foolishly argues that automatic weapons that fire 600 rounds per minute are easier for the untrained to operate than pistols, when the exact opposite is true. The truth is that real gangsters in B.C. do not wave their guns around in public like kids playing would; that fearmongering and a paranoid public is within police self-in-

Must prosperity be at expense of fish and forest?

A

year ago this week my computer performed a bit of magic and proved that big, sloppy tears could transform into pixels. Stephen Harper won a majority and between crying jags my friends offered one-liners on Facebook and Twitter outlining fears that he’d sink into right wing extremism and ruin Canada. Women’s reproductive rights would be stripped away, gay men and women would suffer and kittens would be killed—well, only a few suggested the latter option. Contrary to their prognostications, however, Canada weathered this government and the continuation of a global economic shemozzle with few casualties, animal or otherwise. Some say we’ve done swimmingly as a mat-

ter of fact, and it’s because of the current government. Harper went a step further in a self congratulatory speech on Wednesday. He said Kathy Canadians gave ConMichaels servatives a “mandate to secure their prosperity.” “And this, my friends, we are doing— we are doing every day, every way and everywhere and in every way in which we can,” he said. It nearly sounds like a Seuss-ism, except it doesn’t have that folksy ring of truth. Canadians may not have gone down in an economic shame cycle the same way Greeks have, but are we prospering? To me, that’s about more than staying afloat under a pile of debt. It’s about being an educated, evolved society with plans for the future.

KATHARTIC

And, as much as I like to pooh-pooh my friends histrionics when it comes to Harper, I can’t say that I see a prosperous future for Canadians if we keep heading in the direction we’ve headed. I could ramble on about how I think cuts to Statistics Canada are diminishing our society’s chances for healthy self analysis. I could even mention the fact we have a massive crime bill being pushed forward, despite the fact that crime is on the decline in Canada. Most worth mentioning, however, is the way the current government is addressing environmental issues. We’ve all heard by now about how scientists are being muzzled, but that’s nothing compared to the environmental protections that are being lanced in the name of economic progress. Among the highlights, Harper’s government has given the National Energy Board jurisdiction over endangered species and navigable waters,

if they are in the way of any proposed pipeline. Meanwhile the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act has fallen, and in its wake a new law is being created to restrict the study of impacts of major projects. Former Tory cabinet minister Tom Siddon best highlighted the current government’s problematic view on the environment when highlighting the gutting of the Fisheries Act: “The minister of fisheries is the one remaining and most powerful person in Canada to protect this marvellous, historically important resource we have in Canada— our fishery. That’s his job.” That failure on the job is enough to inspire cause to cap the bubbly and pull out the Kleenex. It’s clear our prosperity is not being pursued “every day, in every way.” Kathy Michaels is a reporter with the Capital News. kmichaels@kelownacapnews.com

LETTERS ▼ CRIME VS MEDICATION

Decriminalizing pot is the intelligent thing to do To the editor: I wasn’t in the least bit surprised to read our mayor (Walter Gray) chose not to sign a letter in support of decriminalization of marijuana. (Mayor Steers Clear of Legal Pot Debate, May 1 Capital News) After all, Kelow-

na is a right-leaning community and he believes he needs to pander to his base. However, the mayors of towns like Lake Country and Vernon signed the letter, and their inhabitants aren’t more liberal in their views than we are. It just

appears these mayors are willing to take a progressive position on it. They’re joining attorneys-general, senators and other intelligent people in speaking out in favour of decriminalization. Spending billions of dollars enforcing a pro-

hibition that doesn’t work is wasteful beyond words. When compared to tobacco or alcohol, neither of which has ever been prescribed as medicine, it seems a fairly benign substance. If pot is decriminalized, people like my son’s

friend’s mom with cancer, could grow her own to alleviate her symptoms. Instead, her son has to go to the Hell’s Angels for pot. How this makes any sense, I don’t know.

Open letter to Ben Stewart, MLA Westside- Kelowna: It has been five weeks now since I put aside some precious time to write you a letter expressing my concerns regarding your and the BC Liberals’ position on Bill 22 (Education Improvement Act).

One thing that has not happened, however, was my receipt of any kind of response to my letter. I would have thought that the thoughts and opinions of your constituents would matter enough to you to warrant a response, even if it were only a form-letter type of “Thank-you for taking the time to write… Your opinion matters to me…” sort of thing, but I guess not.

NEWS A Black Mountain Drive street light copper thief left behind a live wire that could have caused serious injury, say Kelowna RCMP. On Wednesday at1:20 p.m., the Mounties received a report that the street lights on Black Mountain Drive showed signs of tampering. Police found that wires had been exposed and called in an electrical expert to assist in the investigation. Police say about 270 metres of cop-

per wire had been removed from an electrical kiosk in addition to wire taken from several light standards. As well, a loose wire was found to be live and posed a potentially significant hazard to the public. While the investigation is continuing, police remind the public that tampering with street lights or electrical boxes is dangerous and can cause grievous injury or death, and to steer clear of any exposed/live wires or downed cables.

Youngsters invited to ‘Go Fish’ Wade Paterson STAFF REPORTER

Catching your first fish is a memory that can stick with you for a lifetime. The Go Fish recreational fishing program is attempting to share that good feeling with as many young people as possible throughout the month of May. This weekend the Go Fish grand opening will take place at the Hall Road pond in Mission Creek Regional Park on Saturday and at the netted fishing area in Shannon Lake Regional Park on Sunday, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Regional parks staff and volunteers from local fish and game clubs will be on hand to provide a barbecue and refreshments while young people cast their lines and hope for the best. During the weekends in May following the kick off event, kids are invited to come and try to catch a rainbow trout at the two locations. No fishing licence is required for children under 16. Each Saturday volunteers from the Kelowna and District Fish and Game Club and Lonely Loons Flyfishers Society will provide equipment and expert fishing guidance at the Hall Road pond.

Members of the Peachland Sportsmen’s Association will lend their fishing expertise each Saturday in the south end of Shannon Lake in Shannon Lake Regional Park. Regional park services staff will provide equipment and assistance on Sundays at the two locations. Al Springer, past president of the Peachland Sportsmen’s Association, came up with the Go Fish concept several years ago. “About seven or eight years ago, I talked to our club—we felt that there really wasn’t a place to take kids fishing,� said Springer. He said that he knew Shannon Lake would be an ideal location to put a stocked net across the bay. “I talked to the Ministry of Environment about it. (Fisheries biologist) Brian Jantz came down to the lake and he couldn’t see any reason why we couldn’t do it. That’s where it started.� Springer said that the Go Fish program has been “well attended� over the years, with people coming out all day long. “We have about 50 fishing rods and we have a number of people that will replace hooks, put bait on for the kids and show them how to fish.� According to Spring-

SHANNON LAKE Elementary School students watch Craig Schelter, manager of the Summerland Trout Hatchery, stock a netted portion of Shannon Lake with 600 rainbow trout on Thursday. er, some excellent young anglers have honed their skills through the Go Fish program. “They’re only allowed to take one (fish) a day, but some kids will catch 20 in a day. “There are other kids that have trouble, but we’ve kind of got it figured out and we try to make it so they can catch a fish.� Teaching kids about fishing, and the outdoors in general, is important to Springer. “In this day and age, you have to have a reason for going outside. Everybody is inside watching TV and playing on computers. This is a way of introducing a different type of entertainment.�

He added that young people will likely fish later in life if they can build the basic skills at an early age. On Thursday, representatives from the Freshwater Fisheries Society of B.C. were at the netted portion in Shannon Lake, stocking the area with hundreds of rainbow trout. Springer said that the net will stay in Shannon Lake until the end of June to accommodate a family fishing derby on June 16 and other children’s fishing events. Although fishing equipment will be available to use, those who have their own equipment are encouraged to bring it. wpaterson@kelownacapnews.com

A 49-year-old Kelowna man went missing late last week, along with his truck and ATV. On April 30 at 2:15 p.m., the Kelowna RCMP received a report of a missing person from a residence on the 1400 block of Cherry Crescent. The report indicated that William Hermakin has not been seen since April 26 at about 10 a.m. Hermakin is under medical care and requires medication for his condition. He left no indication as to where he may have been headed or when he might return. It was later determined that he had picked up his ATV from the storage fa-

val, which continues to May 13 with more than 85 events throughout the Okanagan. Judges for these awards are the winemakers from among the 112 member wineries of the Okanagan Wine Festivals Society, who judged more than 360 wines last week for this year’s competition. In the fall festival, professional judges are brought in. Judging Chair for the society Rhys Pender said the awards help showcase the depth in grape varietals now available in the valley and help consumers choose a favourite wine with confidence. In all, 23 winners were announced in 22 categories, including CedarCreek Estate Winery, which took the top award for its 2011 Rose. Arrowleaf Cellars was tops with its 2011 Pinot Gris and Sandhill took the Red Single Varieties category with its Small Lot Sangiovese Sandhill Estate Vineyard 2009. Central Okanagan finalists included Ancient Hill Vineyards of Kelowna with its 2009 Pinot Noir; and Gray Monk Estate Winery with its 2011 Odyssey White Meritage. Mission Hill Family

Estate had two finalists in the Red Meritage Blends category, its 2009 Five Vineyards Cabernet Merlot and 2008 Compendium, while, in the same category, Sandhill’s 2009 Small Lots Two Sandhill Estate Vineyard.

Water quality advisory Increased turbidity has prompted the GlenmoreEllison Irrigation District to issue a water quality advisory for water users in the McKinley Landing area. The warning is now in effect and will be until further notice. Affected area water users are advised to boil the tap water they use for drinking, washing fruits and vegetables, making beverages and ice and brushing teeth. Interior Health says water should be boiled for one minute and can be then be refrigerated in clean, covered containers. Due to an increase in Okanagan Lake turbidity, which was measured and reconfirmed during daily testing on May 1, both Interior Heath and GEID say the extra precautions should be taken until the advisory is removed. The advisory was issued in accordance with Interior Health’s guidelines for turbidity reporting. Turbidity is the presence of minute particles in the water, such as silt and other micro organisms.

Skilled centre Rockets’ first choice in WHL draft selection

Rockets deal McColgan to Blades, acquire Olsen Trade intended to improve Rockets’ status at draft table. Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

Shane McColgan’s days in a Kelowna Rockets uniform are over. The WHL club dealt the California-born centre, along with fellow forward Jessey Astles, to the Saskatoon Blades Thursday in exchange for 18-yearold centre Ryan Olsen, and second and fifth round picks in the Western Hockey League bantam draft. McColgan led the Rockets in scoring in each of the last two seasons, scoring 18 goals and adding 46 assists in 70 games in 2011-12. The deal was made, in part, to help the Rockets improve their status at the draft table on Thursday, and to address a size deficiency up front. Heading into the draft, Kelowna didn’t own a second round pick. Meanwhile, Olsen a 6-foot-2 centre and native of Tsawwassen had 15 goals and 32 points last season with the Blades, his second full season in the WHL. “We were looking for

KELOWNA ROCKETS acquired 18-year-old forward Ryan Olsen and two draft picks from the Saskatoon Blades. a big forward and Ryan has good size,” said Rockets general manager and president Bruce Hamilton. “We wanted to add size and this trade also addresses our needs at this draft. We have a second round pick and we think Ryan is going to be a great addition.” While the trade was entirely unexpected for Olsen, he’s happy with his new destination. “I was a little surprised to get traded during the draft, but I’m excited about being a Rocket,” said Olsen. “It’s closer to home for me, and I know the Rockets are a great organization. I’m looking forward to it.” McColgan and Astles each played three seasons with the Rockets. For both players, departing Kelowna for Saskatoon will mean a shot at a Memor-

ial Cup title as the Blades play host to the CHL championship in 2013. “Really excited to be in a great organization like the Saskatoon Blades,” McColgan wrote on his Twitter account. “I wanna thank the Kelowna Rockets for four great years.” “In losing Shane, we’re losing our leading scorer,” added Hamilton. “I think a fresh start will be good for him. With Jessey, we have a number of guys that play like him and that allowed us to move him. We wish both players all the best.” McColgan finished his Rockets career with 202 points in 212 egular season games, and 25 points in 30 playoff contests. Astles had 16 points and 241 penalty minutes in 157 games over three seasons.

With a deep crop of forwards available at the 2012 Western Hockey League bantam draft, the Kelowna Rockets were reasonably certain they’d land a solid player with their first choice. And Lorne Frey wasn’t disappointed when he grabbed talented centre Nick Merkley with the ninth pick overall Thursday morning in Calgary. Merkley played last season with the Calgary bantam AA Bisons and scored 118 points in 56 regular season games. The 5-foot-9, 162-pound Calgary native was also named an all-star at the 2012 Alberta Cup, a showcase tournament for the province’s top bantam-aged players. “He’s a highly-skilled, dynamic young player,” said Lorne Frey, the Rockets director of player personnel and assistant GM. “He’s quick and very unselfish. He moves the puck very, very well. We’re excited. We think we got another dynamic young player.” Merkley’s older brother, Jay, plays for the Lethbridge Hurricanes of the WHL. In the second round, 34th overall, the

Rockets took defenceman Joe Gatenby from the Pursuit of Excellence program in Kelowna. The 5-foot-11, 150-pound Gatenby is a native of Calgary. “He’s mobile, an excellent skater with good size, your typical modern-day defenceman,” Frey said. The Rockets also had the first pick of the third round—acquired from the Prince Albert Raiders—and chose Chris Seto, a left winger from Surrey who played with the Cloverdale bantam tier 1 team. In round 4, Kelowna took Christian Cakebread, a 5-foot-11, 155-pound right winger from Chandler, Arizona. In the fifth round, Kelowna opted for Jake Morrisey, a goalie from Calgary, while the club took Port Moody defenceman Lucas Johansen in the sixth round. Any choices made after the sixth round do not appear in today’s issue due to the Capital News deadline. Look for updates at kelownacapnews. com.

Local players, POE show well in draft Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

West Kelowna and Kelowna products were a sought-after commodity at the WHL draft on Thursday as five local players were chosen in the first four rounds. West Kelowna’s Brad Morrison was taken seventh overall in the opening round by the Everett Silvertips. A 5-foot-9, 130-pound centre, Morrison played this past season with the Okanagan Hockey Academy bantams based in Penticton. He registered 93 goals and 159 points in 63 games during the 201112 campaign. “It’s no surprise to me that Brad was a high pick,” said OHA bantam

tier 1 coach Mike Needham. “He’s tremendously talented, he hunts for the net and loves to score. He’s one of those dynamic, gifted kids that teams are looking for.” Another West Kelowna product, defenceman Chaz Reddekopp, went 13th overall to the Saskatoon Blades. The 6-foot2, 188-pound Reddekopp played last season with Kelowna’s Pursuit of Excellence program. “He’s a big, strong kid, and physically and emotionally mature,” POE bantam coach Kevin MacKay said of Reddekopp. “He shoots the puck hard and skates really well. He’s the most WHL-ready player we had.” In the second round,

Kelowna product Tanner Browne was chosen 35th overall by the Brandon Wheat Kings. A 5-foot11, 195-pound defenceman, Browne played with the POE bantam program in 2011-12. Kelowna’s Austin Wellsby, a right winger who played with POE, was chosen in the fourth round, 76th overall by the

Kootenay Ice. Westside bantam tier 2 defenceman Jesse Mills, who stands in a 6-foot4, was chosen 88th overall by the Edmonton Oil Kings. Other POE players chosen in the first four rounds of the draft were: defenceman Ethan Bear (Whitewood, Sask.) 25th overall by Seattle; defenceman Joe Gatenby (Calgary), 34th overall by the Kelowna Rockets; and centre Jordan Kawaguchi (Abbotsford), 80th overall by the Spokane Chiefs. POE had nine players chosen in the first five rounds. Any selections beyond the fourth round do not appear due to the Capital News deadline on Thursday.

Moras delivers fight stopper Kevin Parnell STAFF REPORTER

In a sport dominated by men, Sarah “Cheesecake” Moras has proven that women can fight too. Late last month Moras increased her combined mixed martial arts record to a perfect 5-0 with a victory over previously undefeated Julianna Pena (71) of Spokane, Washington. Heading into the fight, Pena, who was ranked k15th in the world amongst female fighters, had finished every one of her opponents. But then she ran into Moras, Team Toshido’s lone professional female fighter. Moras tstopped Pena at the end of round two with a devastatring armlock which broke Pena’s arm at the elbow, forcing the ringside doctor to stop the bout. “I am so proud of

Sarah,” stated Toshido MMA head coach David Lea. “Just like her teammate Rory MacDonald has already done in the UFC, Sarah is just a few fights away from becoming a household name in the sport of women’s MMA.” Moras, 24, first began training in mixed martial arts more than five years ago, first taking it up as a way to stay in shape. Soon she realized she had a passion for MMA and began taking on fights. She moved from her native Chilliwack to England to train overseas, before arriving in Kelowna and taking up a spot with Toshido’s fight team. “It’s a really challenging sport,” she said. “There is always something to be learned. You can never be perfect. I like to be the best at everything I do and I like the chal-

lenge. There is nothing I have come across that is more challenging than this.” One of the challenging aspects of being a female mixed martial artist is finding opponents. As a sport, mixed martial arts is dominated by male fighters. Finding women that want to step into the cage can be difficult. Then you have to take in weight class and experience to find the right match-ups. “A lot of shows really want women fighters,” said Moras. “We were the main event for my last fight. But there is definitely a shortage of female fighters. I’ve trained in a lot of gyms and there aren’t many females you run into that take it seriously.” Currently the UFC doesn’t allow women to compete however according to Lea, the UFC’s sis-

points total broke the program’s record for most in a season by a freshman at the Division I level, topping Anthony Canzoneri’s mark of 31 in the 2005-06 season. “It’s an absolute honour to be named to this team in my freshman year,” says Grieve. “Playing for Bentley and Coach Ryan Soderquest really helped me progress as a hockey player and as a person. I am looking forward to next year already.”

Grieve finished the season as Atlantic Hockey’s leader in both goals and points among rookies (one ahead of teammate Brett Switzer in both categories), and overall, was fifth in the league in points and tied for eighth in goals. In three seasons with the BCHL’s Warriors, Grieve scored 69 goals and had 158 points in 169 games. This summer Grieve will spend time between West Kelowna and Cal-

Kelowna United soccer results wrap up Kelowna United soccer teams had another good weekend last week, playing teams from around the Okanagan Valley. Here’s a look back at the results from April 28 and 29.

U13 GIRLS The KU girls came out strong and were able to score in the first seven minutes of the game as Courtney Peissard scored on an assist from Mackenzie Schwinghamer. The girls continued to dominate the play by keeping the ball in the Shuswap end for much of the half but Shuswap would tie the game 1-1 despite the pressure. Kelowna poured on the offense in the second half and ran to a 5-1 win. Schwinghamer added her second while other goals came from Angelia Ostrom, Paige Krivoshein and Kiera Baldwin. Strong play by the

defense line of Courtney Gunn, Natalie Hope, Brianna Tataryn, Antonia Weiler and Erin Thomas kept the ball out of the KU end and fed it up to the mids and forwards. In their second game of the day the Kelowna United U-13s came up against a tough Penticton squad and lost 5-2. Strong goaltending from Hannah Allan kept Kelowna in the game in the first half but Penticton out-scored Kelowna in the second. KU goal scorers were Angelia Ostrom and, Danika Lee.

U15 GIRLS In an evenly matched game, Kelowna and Penticton both came out strong and showed some great ball possession, passing and strong defence that ultimately led to several scoring chances. It wasn’t until a few minutes before the half that KU’s Emma John-

Miranda led the strong effort from the back-end. A trio of Kelowna players scored twice as Connor Sandrin, Blaise Beauchemin and Nicholas Macdonnell each found the back of the net twice in a 6-0 win.

U15 BOYS CONTRIBUTED

Second half play saw the Penticton team continue to pressure KU but excellent defending by Jazlyn Lazar, Abbey Nyberg, Jenna Labossiere and Hayley Slade managed to shut down any scoring opportunities by the opposition. Right before the final whistle a well placed shot

by Jaedyn Penkala saw the back of the net to give KU the 2-0 win. Avery Watson in net made some excellent saves for the shut out.

U13 BOYS The Kelowna United Under-13 boys came out with a clean sheet, shutting out Shuswap 6-0. Defensive players Gurkamal Kaloty, Oliver Perry, Evan Callahan, Nicolas Smith, Kane Logan and Noah

The KU Under-15 boys came on strong with a solid first half against Vernon’s Under-15 team. Aaron Obedkoff scored seven minutes in for the first goal of the game and KU maintained control for the better part of the first half with some great passing and defense. Ronel Kayal and Jacob Dunn also scored for Kelowna in what would end up a 3-0 win. Penticton was unable to beat goalkeeper Dawson Colluney as the U-15 boys remained unbeaten on the season.

U16 BOYS Kelowna and Vernon played a fair and well fought game with Kelowna taking over in the second half. KU led 2-1 at the half before scoring five more in the second half in a 7-2 win. Goals were scored Dylan Wagner, Bryden DelMedico, Mitchell Marrs and Josh Ugyan.

Rugby League skills camp at UBCO With the new British Columbia Rugby League competition starting on Saturday, May 12, a lot of work will be required to get the Kelowna Crows’ team ready for their historic first game. With that in mind, a Rugby League skills camp will be held this Saturday at UBC Okanagan as the coaching staff will run through the differences between Union and League. Andy Blackburn, the head coach of B.C. Bulldogs representative squad, will conduct a camp for senior players beginning at 1 p.m. at Nonis Field. It’s an opportunity to impress the head coach before the season starts, and to hear what he is looking for from players interested in playing for the Bulldogs. Earlier in the day, beginning at 9 a.m., Blackburn will hold a skills session for younger players in Grades 10 to 12. It’s both an instructional session and a means of finding out what opportunities await young players in Rugby League play. Rugby League is a fast, exciting version of rugby and is played along simi-

lar rules to Touch Rugby except full body contact is allowed. The attacking side has six completed tackles to progress the ball down the field. There are no rucks or lineouts, and scrums are not contested adding to the speed of the game. The season will be scheduled around the Rugby Union season to not cause any conflict, and to give players the opportunity to play both codes of rugby. Rugby League is a major sport in Australia, U.K,. and New Zealand. Canada was recently voted the No. 1 developing country in the world outside of the main three countries in Rugby League. In two years Canada has moved up to 21st ranking in the world, using only players from Ontario. This year will see many players from British Columbia prove their selection and have opportunities to play Representative Rugby League. For more inforvmation, contact Canada Rugby League development manager Paul O’Keefe at paulo@ canadarugbyleague.com, or call 778-214-9191.

Underwood also plays around with some island rhythms on the breezy Nobody Ever Told You that would have made a nice duet with Zac Brown while Underwood goes all out reggae on the sweet sounding One Way Ticket. There are 14 tracks on this generous offering that holds up nicely and committed fans will enjoy this new album where Underwood, on the liner graphics, seems to be copying Angelina Jolie at the latest Academy Awards with her ‘power’ thigh thrusting through her high-cut evening gown. Note that Underwood has postponed her support tour until mid June so I am guessing she is thinking hubby Mike Fisher of the NHL’s Nashville Predators is going all the way to the cup final. C+

NBC series but the premise, as I understand it, is a TV show about rehearsal competitions as to whom will be the Marilyn Monroe character in a Broadway musical to be titled Bombshell. So I would have guessed that a few of Monroe’s most famous songs, such as Diamonds Are A Girl’s Best Friend or My Heart Belongs To Daddy or Happy Birthday Mr. President, would be covered—but they are not. Instead, these are mostly all original songs as taken from the TV series with songs written by tried and true stars such as Ryan Tedder (OneRepublic) and Carrie Underwood and hence the grab bag approach to this eclectic album. Things start off with the Lady GaGa-like dance pop Touch Me as sung by one of the two main ‘Monroe’ contenders, Katherine McPhee, while the understudy, Megan Hilty, offers up the power ballad Who Are You?.

HOME & GARDEN

Water-wise shrubs create interesting as well as low-maintenance garden GARDENING WITH NATURE

Gwen Steele

T

here are many beautiful shrubs that are suitable for water-wise Okanagan gardens. A mass planting of shrubs with a three inch mulch of organic matter (such as Ogogrow, Glengrow, compost) or wood chip or bark mulch will be a long-lasting, very low maintenance landscape. If space allows, a mixture of shrubs could be used to create a hedgerow instead of planting waterthirsty cedar hedging. A front or back yard could be changed to a low-maintenance, magical place by planting a broad selection of larger shrubs and possibly one or two small trees. A meandering mulched path through them, with a garden seat or two to sit and enjoy the birds, adds enjoyment and a place to relish time saved with no lawn to tend mow. It is vital to allow for mature size when planting shrubs. Ensure they will not overgrow a path, grow into another plant or building, obscure a desirable view, or be too tall under wires. This will allow the shrub to grow to its full glory and minimize pruning tasks. The landscape will be a bit sparse until shrubs mature. In the meantime, to fill in, perennials and/or ornamental grasses can be planted in empty spaces. These can be moved to another garden as the shrubs fill in. When selecting shrubs, choose ones that bloom at different times

The garden is mulched with Ogogrow. to extend enjoyment and provide continuing nectar and pollen for bees and hummingbirds. The plant database at www.okanaganxeriscape.org has 22 search criteria such as height and spread, water and light requirements, bloom time and colour, plus photos, to help decide what to plant. When choosing plants, consider what they look like in each of the four seasons. The spectacular blooming period is usually over in three weeks but good contrast in foliage colour and texture will give three seasons of enjoyment. Also consider the shape and structure of the shrub. What will it look like in winter? The database has both fall colour and winter interest as selection criteria. Look for such things as bark colour and texture. Add in a few evergreen shrubs for winter interest and for the birds. Shrubs with berries or seeds will keep birds in the winter garden. Adding bird feeders will increase the number of visitors. Low-water shrubs will need to be watered regularly for about two to

three years to get established. Watering can gradually be decreased until they just need a good soak during a long dry spell. Drip irrigation is the most efficient method for this. To avoid having to irrigate once plants are established, choose ones that are in the lowest water category in the database. This will include most of our native shrubs.

Habitat protection remains vital I

t’s simply an excellent argument for conservation and it was the theme for the 56th annual general meeting of the B.C. Wildlife Federation last weekend: A Land Fit for Wildlife is a Land Fit for People. It’s particularly true of fish habitat, and is one of the best arguments I can think of why we should not be watering down the federal Fisheries Act by removing the requirement to protect fish habitat.

TRAIL MIX

Judie Steeves In general terms, habitat that’s safe and healthy for fish is water that’s safe and healthy for people to drink, (except that neither giardia nor cryptosporidia parasites seem to

bother aquatic critters but they sure can harm us.) It’s in our own best interest to protect fish habitat, yet the federal government is proposing to gut both the Fisheries Act and the Canadian Environmental Protection Act. Former fisheries minister Tom Siddon believes this will be part of an omnibus bill that will be rushed through the House of Commons within the next few weeks, so if our objections are to have

any effect, we must take a stand immediately. Let your MP and current fisheries minister Keith Ashfield know that you object strenuously to such changes to legislation that protects fish and wildlife and their habitat. These amendments would cut the legs out from under our conservation officers and other enforcement staff, who rely on the current legislation as their tool to prevent destruction of habitat. From all accounts this year’s BCWF convention was a good one, and locals are all delighted that long-time local conservationist, hunter and angler Ron Taylor was presented with the top award the BCWF can present: the Ted Barsby Conservationist of the Year award. I can’t think of anyone more deserving. Congratulations Ron. Congrats as well to Bill Bosch, who has taken on the federation’s top job as president. It’s going to be a busy year for him.

Study reveals how we might delay onset of dementia T he Archives of Internal Medicine published an article this week that demonstrated resistance training in its ability to delay the onset of dementia. This is a timely article in a population where the majority is entering their golden years.

we learn and remember through using the motor part of our brain, known as the cerebellum. This study indicates the importance of movement, exer-

cise and consistent training and maintaining cognitive health. Dementia and degenerate brain states have been demonstrated to im-

prove through actively exercising not only our body but our brain. This is well reported in the literature. Previous studies have considered the application

of learning a musical instrument or a second language in the latter years of life in an attempt to improve cognitive function and reduce the incidence

of dementia. This is the first study that has considered the importance of physical training in the form of resistance training and its

contributory effect in mental health as we age. Markus Thiel is a chiropractor practicing in Kelowna. askdrthiel@shaw.ca

ASK DR.THIEL

Markus Thiel Dr. Teresa Liu-Ambrose, with the Cognitive Neuroscience Laboratory at the University of British Columbia, found that resistance training performed twice-weekly improved executive function, associative memory and regional patterns of functional brain plasticity in older women who were susceptible to a mild cognitive impairment. “We provide novel evidence that resistance training can benefit multiple domains and those at risk for dementia,� summarized the article writer Megan Brooks. The same researcher previously conducted a study that analyzed the effects of resistance training and cognitive function over a 12 month period. That study demonstrated significant improvement after only six months in those with mild cognitive impairment. On average, individuals with mild cognitive impairment will develop dementia within the next five years. This study demonstrates that the onset of dementia may not only be delayed, but may be avoided. The study involved 86 females over the age of 70. Twenty-eight women were designated to an exercise twice weekly group, 28 other women were designated to aerobic training or balance training with 60 being the control group. Ninety per cent of the 86 females completed the trial, and 22 of those individuals had MRI analysis completed at the end of the study. After six months, the activity group showed a significant improvement in cognitive testing and conflict resolution. Memory tasks also improved significantly. MRI studies correlated those findings.

Walls of San Juan are full of history Bob Downing CONTRIBUTOR

The walls around Old San Juan in Puerto Rico are tall and very imposing. They are as tall as 42 feet and as thick as 45 feet

at the base, 2 feet at the top. The muralla or city wall features two walls of sandstone blocks, filled with sand, mortar, limestone and water. The walls served San Juan well, thwarting pirates and foreign invad-

ers for hundreds of years. That includes the English, the Dutch and the Americans. Slaves began building them in 1630 and continued for 150 years. The walls feel military and medieval, and ooze hist-

It was, along with Havana, Cuba, and Cartagena, Colombia, among the Spanish colonial cities with the most formidable walls. One of the best ways to view the fortress-like walls of San Juan is to stroll El Paseo del Morro, a national recreational trail between Old San Juan and

You won’t be alone on El Paseo del Morro. You will be sharing the trail with the city’s most famous occupants: Old San Juan’s feral cats. Hundreds of stray cats live in Old San Juan

and roam the streets and the waterfront. The cats are typically found on the trail, in surrounding brush and along the rocks between the trail and the water. They’re everywhere. Some are said to have descended from Spanish cats. A grass-roots group, Save a Gato (cat), manages the feral cats along the trail. That includes providing food and water, plus trapping, neutering,

vaccinating and releasing them. The northern terminus of the trail is next to the Castillo de San Felipe del Morro, the Castle of St. Philip of the Headland. It was one of two great forts built by the Spanish to protect San Juan. It is known locally as El Morro. There are plans to extend the trail to run along the northern side of El Morro, and to the east to the Puerto Rico territorial capital. The walkway by the water takes you within the shadow of El Morro, a fort that towers 140 feet above the water and guards the San Juan harbor with 16-foot-thick walls. It is the biggest attraction in Old San Juan and is managed by the National Park Service. Built from 1539 to 1786, it is a sprawling, sixlevel complex of weathered sandstone with ramparts, gun rooms, storerooms, barracks, ramps, vaulted rooms, a chapel and large interior courtroom. It was staffed by up to 250 Spanish troops. The fort is studded with small circular sentry posts called garitas, which have become a symbol of Puerto Rico. Strangely, it

is topped by a New England-style lighthouse that was built in 1908. El Morro was attacked by England’s Sir Francis Drake in 1595 and was captured by the English in 1598. Admission to the fort is $3 per day. For National Park Service information, call 787-729-6777 or check out www.nps. gov/saju. The fort and surrounding grounds cover 74 acres. You can get to the trail south of El Morro at the red-painted San Juan Gate with its heavy wooden doors. It was built in 1520 and provided access to the city to Spanish dignitaries and well-to-do arrivals disembarking from ships. Less prominent arrivals used one of the five other gates found in San Juan’s 3.4 miles of walls. The gates all closed at sundown. San Juan is the only surviving original town gate. The new arrivals would climb up the hill to the Gothic-styled Cathedral de San Juan Bautista (St. John the Baptist) to give thanks for a safe ocean crossing. The original church was destroyed by winds in 1540. Today’s cathedral was built in the 19th century. The church is the home of the marble tomb of explorer Ponce de Leon, who played a big role in settling Puerto Rico. In 1508, he arrived on the island with a company of soldiers and a famously vicious dog named Becerillo. He founded Caparra, now known as Pueblo Viego, west of the current metropolitan area. He vanquished the natives, the Tainos, and was

the first governor of Puerto Rico. He scrapped his original colony and moved to the current site of Old San Juan, a windy, defensible headland. He later went to Florida in search of the Fountain of Youth. From the San Juan Gate, you can proceed south along the walkway but it is not part of the designated El Paseo del Morro. It will take you to the Raices Fountain and the wide boulevard of the Paseo de la Princesa. You will even find an alcove in the wall that is filled with giant artistic spikes that rise into the sky. The Paseo de la Princesa is a tree-lined, restored 19thcentury esplanade by the harbor. Today San Juan— the oldest city under a United States flag—has about 400,000 residents. It is the most vibrant city in the Caribbean, drawing big crowds of tourists on cruises. Old San Juan is a compact, colorful neighborhood made for walking, in the heart of modern San Juan. Old San Juan is only three square miles, with narrow streets. It is dominated by 400 Spanish colonial-style buildings from the 16th and 17th centuries and the two forts: El Morro and Castillo de San Cristobal, less than a mile apart. San Cristobal is the biggest fort built by Spain in the New World. It covers 27 acres and includes five bastions. Work on the fort began in 1634 and was completed in 1771. The two forts feature tunnels, plazas, dungeons, batteries and even accounts of ghosts. They offer great vistas of the city and the coastline. They

are part of the San Juan National Historic Site that was established in 1949 and are U.N. World Heritage Sites. They get 2 million visitors a year. In Old San Juan, visitors will find museums and impressive buildings like La Fortaleza, the governor’s home built in 1540. There is a museum to musician Pablo Casals, and the Museo de Arte de Puerto Rico is another attraction. The Convento Dominico was built in 1523 by Dominican friars; the white-domed building is now a museum. The Casa Blanca is the house built in the 1520s for de Leon, although he never lived there. It is now the Juan Ponce de Leon Museum. Old San Juan is filled with plazas, parks, monuments and fountains. There are hotels, shops, casinos, restaurants, clubs and galleries. It’s a happening place during the day and even more so after dark. Check out the restaurants and clubs in the SOFO (South of Fortaleza Street) district. Today, the streets of Old San Juan are lined with deep-blue cobblestones that were used as ballast on Spanish ships.

There are overhanging ironwork balconies, pastel facades and courtyards. Puerto Rico is 110 miles long and 40 miles wide. It has nearly 4 million residents. It is a United States territory, so no passports are needed for Americans. It is known for its pricey resorts with beaches that line the island’s north coast. Condado and Ocean Park are beachfront areas known for hotels and restaurants. You can tour the Bacardi rum distillery in Catano, a San Juan suburb. Other attractions include the 28,000-acre El Yunque rain forest about 35 minutes east of San Juan. Officially called the Caribbean National Forest, it is the only rain forest in the U.S. forest system. Head for the El Portal Rain Forest Center. There are 13 trails that cover 17 miles. It’s really another world. It is home to the rare Puerto Rican parrot, plus 240 species of tropical trees, 50 ferns and 20 orchids.

THE JOHN COOPER WORKS HATCHBACK (left) and Roadster Cooper S (right) add to the growing pantheon of MINI models for 2012 with two more in the pipeline. MINI Canada expects to sell its 40,000th car this spring.

MINI keeps rolling out the fun with new model cars Jim Robinson CONTRIBUTOR

Every automaker talks about making its cars fun to drive but few ever make it happen. Of the handful I can think of, MINI is certainly

the most prolific in terms of models available. You’d think there isn’t a lot you can do with a shape that is basically a square and one that shouldn’t be tampered with at that, because it is truly iconic.

There is the basic MINI three-door hatch followed by the Coupe, Convertible, Clubman (wagon), Countryman (minivan/CUV) and now the Roadster and that doesn’t include Special Editions (Bayswater, Highgate and

2012 MITSUBISHI LANCER D DEE

Baker Street). And, MINI just keeps on rolling out new wrinkles seemingly with no end in sight. This year expect to see the Paceman, a Range Rover Evoquesque wagon and the race-tuned GP2.

MINI doesn’t market its products as practical, utilitarian or ideal for the growing family. They sell the MINI as fun, fun, fun and cheeky fun at that. Two perfect examples are the 2012 JCW (John

Cooper Works) Hatchback and the brand new Roadster. And while they may be based on the same car, the personalities are totally different. All MINIs have the same 1.6-litre, twincam

With a sixspeed manual or six-speed automatic, fuel consumption is rated respectively at 6.1/6.4L/100 km combined. Step up to the MINI Cooper S and the engine gets a twin-scroll turbocharger tacked on with a bump in power to 181 hp and 177 lb/ft of torque.

FYI, all three trim levels are named Cooper and if you’re wondering where the Cooper part comes from, it’s a charming story. John Cooper and his father, Charles, were racecar constructors in the 1950s and created what were the first successful rear-engined cars. They won the FI title in 1959 and 1960. But where

factory known in English slang as the Works, thus the name. I will always treasure going there in 2003 meeting Mike, his wife, daughter and sister who treated me like an old family friend. I found out his name was actually John Michael Cooper. He was called Mike because John Sr. named him after England’s first FI champion, Mike Hawthorn. Available in Cooper ($28,900), Cooper S ($32,900) and JCW ($39,900) forms, the new Roadster comes standard with a manual soft top that can be swung up or down with one hand. A power top is a $750 option and takes up no more trunk space than the cloth version. Trunk space is 250 litres. Inside it is the same mix of function and whimsy that helps set the MINI apart. There is the dinner plate sized speedo and secondary readouts smack in the middle of the dash with retro style rocker switches for everything. Attached on the left side of the steering wheel shaft mounted tach is a gauge that counts the hours and minutes the top is down. A recessed, powered spoiler on the rear deck deploys at 80 km/h and retracts at 60 km/h. There is a manual override switch for the driver so Mr. Policeman won’t know if you’ve been naughty. MINI brags, justifiably, about go-kart like handling and the Roadster is no different. Tested here is the Cooper S version with six-speed manual. While the automatic is available, MINI believes the Roadster will sell primarily to males who want a stick. It is very slick box to use and, with the also instant response from the turbo, the Roadster squirts out of low-speed corners and stays on song right up to the top of the rev range. Just looking at the JCW Hatchback and you know this ain’t no girlie car. There is a monster spoiler jutting rearward at the top of the liftgate. The spidery blacked out alloy wheels with blood red brake calipers and the body kit with rocker panel air strakes let you know this is a serious piece of kit. The JCW bolstered seats cup you like a base-

Dodge takes aim at compact segment with all-new Dart Neil Moore CONTRIBUTOR

The return of the Dodge Dart has generated plenty of buzzâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;especially among those old enough to remember the original. The first Darts were full-size, but in 1963, the third-generation modelâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;available as a sedan, coupe, wagon or convertibleâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;was built on what was then considered a compact platform. Although Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not old enough to have had much contact with early Darts, we had plenty of wellworn fourth-generation models (â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;67-â&#x20AC;&#x2122;76) in our high school parking lot. Many were tricked out to resemble muscle cars, but few had muscle, most having the ubiquitous 225 cubic inch slant six under the hood. Some had the 318 cu. in. V8, and a few were Dart â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Swingersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; which came standard with the 340. The optional 383 or 440 powerplants were less common. Unfortunately federal emission regulations sucked the life from the car, and it was replaced by the horrendous Plymouth Volare and Dodge Aspen. I still remember

the cheesy commercials with Italian-American tenor Sergio Franchi singing a modified version of his signature song. But I do reminisce fondly about the Dart, and was pleased when it was announced that Chrysler was bringing back the nameplate. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the same nostalgia play as Charger or Challengerâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; as the new Dart is nothing like the original. For starters, and thanks to its Italian partners, this Dodge is based upon the Alfa Romeo Giulietta, a model known for its road holding and agility, not to mention its chic design. But the company took a different tack in designing its North American compact, stretching the Alfa platform about a foot and widening it two inches. The new architectureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s low, wide and long dimensions favour a stable, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;body-in, wheelsoutâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; stance with all four pushed to the corners. The new car has a 106 inch (2703 mm) wheelbaseâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;just shy of the 1975 Dart, which was, overall, about 19 inches longer. The new model also has more interior volume. Indeed, the company has learned much in 37

years about these kinds of efficiencies, and in a compact footprint have carved out mid-size interior space. The Dart appears to be near or at the top of its segment in terms of overall volume, and has more rear leg room than some mid-size cars like the Optima and Sonata. The Dartâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new underpinnings, however, are about more than providing a commodious cabin; the structure also uses 68 per cent high-strength steel, resulting in an architecture that is lightweight and solid. Good for safety, as well as NVH (noise/ vibration/harshness), ride and handling. So too is the independent suspension with MacPherson struts and stabilizer bar in front, and multi-link with link-type stabilizer in rear. Over rough roads and in tight turns, the Dart felt solid and composed. I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t able to drive a toptrim R/T with sport-tuned suspension, but found the others delivered a ride that was compliant, but not mushy in hard cornering. Thestandard-equipped electric power steering was quick and responsive, nicely weighted, and provided decent feedback.

it smooth and quiet, although lacking in punch. Acceleration from stop was leisurely, with matters improving once you get out of first gear. My preference would be the 16-valve, 1.4-litre MultiAir turbo engine, which despite its small displacement delivers 160 hp and 184 lb/ft of torque.

DODGE DART 2013 CONTRIBUTED

THE 2013 DODGE DART is based on the Alfa Romeo Giulietta, only longer and wider. This all-new compact sedan gets a toned-down crosshair grille, coupe-like silhouette and clean sheet metal for a sporty, yet sophisticated look. Unlike some early EPS systems. And while the carâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stiff structure contributes to a quiet cabin, much of that can also be credited to the honing of exterior shapes from more than 600 hours spent in wind tunnel testing, not to mention the liberal use of sound-deadening materials and improved seals. Look under the Dart and instead of greasy bits, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll find smooth composite panels from stem to stern. These also reduce drag and help block road noise. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also abundant foam and acoustic baffles tucked into pillars and other body cavities. All of which result in a cabin that is as hushed as many premium sedans Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve driven.

Aerodynamics also play a big role in the Dartâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s front-end design. This is the first Dodge vehicle to use an active grille shutter system, which closes to stop airflow at highway speeds (when less cooling is needed), and opens in hot city driving. The front end is also where the Dart makes its strongest style statement. This varies by trim level, with its main featureâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the split crosshair grilleâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;being toned down from earlier Dodge vehicles for a more sophisticated look. The grille comes in four variations, and is flanked by projector headlamps in either hyper black or chrome. From the side, the Dart has a coupe-like silhouette with steeply-raked front

and rear windshields, and clean sheet metal with no excess bling. Subtle bulges over the large wheel openings enhance the vehicleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s planted look, as do the available 17- and 18-inch alloys. From the rear, the Dartâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wrap-around taillampsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;which include 152 LEDsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;are a nod to big brother Charger. Below are available fascia-mounted dual exhaust tips for a more polished look than expected in this segment. There are three engine choices, starting with the base â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Tigersharkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 16-valve, 2.0-litre inline four cylinder that delivers 160 hp and 148 lb/ft of torque. I drove this with the available six-speed automatic, and found

W CONSTRUCTION

W BUILDING A NEW HOME

Advantages of building a new home

Outlining a construction timeline

Home from B20 munities. New developments are designed to foster a spirit of neighbourliness by carefully balancing private and public areas—welcoming home designs, green recreational areas, playgrounds for children, safe and attractive roads and pathways. Today’s new homes combine function and style, with open, inviting living areas, lots of light, well-planned work spaces and built-in convenience. Flexible layouts make it easy to accommodate future changes to your household. New homes allow for the use the most advanced building components. From construction materials to heating systems, the technology built into every new home ensures high performance, durability and long-term satisfaction. New home builders offer a wide selection of

standard and upgrade options—you can pick and choose what best suits your lifestyle, personality and budget. Thanks to advanced construction, higher levels of insulation and energyefficient heating and cooling systems, you not only save money on your energy bills, you also enjoy a far more comfortable home. Clean air, a comfortable moisture level and no mold or lingering odours—new homes are designed to give you and your family the best possible indoor living environment. And one of the great advantages of buying a brand new home is the warranty that comes with it. Professional builders stand behind their work with an after-sales service program and a guaranteed third-party warranty. Contributed by the Central Okanagan chapter of the Canadian Home Builders Association.

Most home buyers have a lot of questions about the construction of their home Here is an outline of the typical construction process today. Bear in mind the process and schedule will also be affected by many factors such as the size and style of the house; the lot; the construction techniques used; the amount of customization required; the number of municipal inspections; whether the home is located in a large development; and the availability of labour.

PRE-CONSTRUCTION Before any construction begins, plans for your home are developed, finalized and submitted to the municipal building permit office for review. Permits may be required for all or some of the following work: building, electrical, plumbing, septic system and sewer connection. Prior to this, a number of site tests may be conducted to examine the water table, the soil and

the bearing capacity of the ground and to conduct environmental tests. With this information, final engineering adjustments can be made to the plans.

FOUNDATION Your house is staked out and the land is prepared. Often, the topsoil is removed and piled elsewhere for later use. Excavation is done, and the footings (concrete slabs to support the foundation walls) are formed and poured. Water, electricity, telephone and cable services may be brought in at this time. The foundation walls are erected (may use poured concrete in temporary wooden forms or permanent insulated blocks, concrete blocks or preserved wood, for instance). The foundation may be insulated and damp-proofed. Weeping tiles are installed to drain ground moisture away from the house. A municipal inspection of the foundation may be conducted before the outside perim-

from $159,900

eter is backfilled. At this time, the builder may ask you to begin making your selections— deciding on flooring, tiles, cabinets, etc. While it will be weeks before these items are installed, they must be ordered early to prevent delays later.

FRAMING Exterior walls, interior partitions and the roof are assembled. This usually means erecting a framing skeleton and applying an exterior sheeting; or another framing technique may be used. Frames are built on the floor, one wall at a time and then lifted in place. Roof trusses are most often brought to the site ready for installation, and roofing is completed as quickly as possible to prevent accidental damage as work progresses on the lower parts of the home. Windows and doors are installed. The builder’s aim is to get to “lock-up” as quickly as possible to protect the structure from the elements.

The basement floor is installed. Electrical and plumbing services are roughed in, and ducting for heating, cooling and ventilation is put in place. At this time, the municipality will probably require a structural inspection to ensure that the home is being built according to building code requirements. Electrical and plumbing inspections will likely be conducted as well.

INTERIOR/EXTERIOR WORK For the next several weeks, a great deal of work will happen inside and out, much of it at the same time, or overlapping. Proper scheduling is key to smooth progress. The exterior walls and the roof are insulated, and a vapour barrier is applied. Heating and cooling systems are installed, including fireplaces. Walls and ceilings are painted, flooring is laid, and kitchen and bathroom cabinets are installed. Plumbing and electrical fixtures are put in, trim is applied, and in-

terior doors are hung. Siding is applied on the outside, along with eavestroughing, and porches and decks are installed. Final lot grading is done, and the driveway and walkways are put in. Several additional municipal inspections may occur—for instance, after completion of the interior to check stairs, handrails and other health and safety related items, and/ or after final grading outside. Plumbing and electrical work will probably require final inspection.

HAND-OVER

At this point, your builder and crew are busy completing the final touches and cleaning up. You will be asked to do a walk-through of your home with the builder. Any last-minute touchups will be done. On the date of possession, you will be handed the keysthe home is now yours.

SHOWCASE W SMALL TOWN LIFESTYLE

Turning an iconic house into a home

r

Alana Semuels /CONTRIBUTOR

Beth Howard sits at her kitchen table on a Sunday morning and pulls back the curtain to peer at a group of rosyrcheeked youths taking pictures on her front lawn. They pair off to stand side by side in the pose familiar to millions— rthe dour farmer with a pitchfork, the unsmiling woman beside him in front of the white house. No one notices the woman in flannel pajamas sitting inside. “People seldom know that people live here, much less that there’s someone watching them from the other side of the curtain,” says Howard, who rents the house in the small rural hamlet of Eldon, Iowa, made famous in Grant Wood’s painting “American Gothic.” Living in a tourist destination means while the interior of the house is offlimits to visitors, she has to be nice to tourist interlopers. Those who peek inside see hardwood floors decorated with throw rugs, brightly coloured couches and a collage depicting the Gothic house above the kitchen sink. The house, which has appeared in countless parodies, has captivated Howard. She misses it when she’s away and said that when she went to see Wood’s painting at the Art Institute of Chicago, she wanted to jump into the painting and go home (a security guard had to ask her to step away from the artwork). “You can smell the

CONTRIBUTED

BETH HOWARD stands in front of her home, the house featured in the 1930 painting “American Gothic.” history,” she said of her adopted home. “It’s very soothing—I feel connected to my ancestors.” The dwelling had inspired Grant Wood, just returned from making art in France and Italy, to paint a tribute to his native state. The 700-square-foot house was built in 1881 and sold to Charles and Catherine Dibble, who lost it after failing to pay taxes. It is now creaky and old. Square nails poke out of the wooden floorboards, the paint is peeling and the stairway is so small it’s a better fit for a child than an adult. It was the big gothic window on the second story that struck Wood in 1930, when he was driving through Eldon with a friend.

The intricate window, ordered from a Sears catalogue, looked out of place in the modest house on the prairie. Wood immediately wanted to paint the plain house and its fancy frill. For Howard, 49, embracing the Midwest has been a bit more of a challenge. Living in a centuryold house miles from the nearest city is a new experience for Howard, who spent her 20s and 30s in the faster-paced world of the West Coast. Last summer, a sixfoot-long bull snake crawled into the bathroom and draped itself over the doorknob. Howard also ran over a snapping turtle in her Mini Cooper. Tourists sometimes tramp into the house, ignoring the sign that says

“Private residence. Please do not disturb.” At night, they’ll train their headlights on the house and pose for pictures. Then again, the rent is just $250 a month. *** Howard grew up in Ottumwa, Iowa, just 25 kilometres from the “American Gothic” house, and she couldn’t escape from the Midwest fast enough. She left home to attend Evergreen State College in Olympia, Wash. After that, she worked as a publicist for TV shows, including Beverly Hills 90210; lived in Hawaii while working at a resort, and had enough money for exotic travel and adventure sports. “I remember thinking she had it made,”

said childhood friend Nan Schmid, who visited Howard in Malibu. “The beach was down a set of stairs. She was making a lot of money.” When she was 39, Howard took a trip to Crater Lake National Park in Oregon, where she met Marcus Iken, an executive with German automaker Daimler, which builds Mercedes-Benzes. The two hit it off, and, after riding motorcycles across Italy and dating long-distance for two years, decided to get married. Iken died of a ruptured aorta in 2009. At the time, the couple was living apart, thinking of divorce. Howard, plagued with guilt and grief, set out two years ago from Portland

on a cross-country trip in a recreational vehicle her husband had left her. Three weeks into her trip, driving along U.S. Route 34 in Iowa, Howard saw a sign that read: “American Gothic House. Six miles.” On a whim, she turned off the highway. At the visitor centre in Eldon, she learned that the house had been lived in over the years. Feeling deep down that she was meant to live in this tiny space, and with nowhere else to go, she asked if she could move in. Howard would leave behind a hip, urban life and move to Eldon, a town of 900 with no stop lights, no restaurants and no supermarket. Family and friends thought she was crazy. But Howard has thrived. She says the house and community have given her a way of life that she thought existed only in the past. Howard said she was in Los Angeles recently on her book tour and that the noise of leaf-blowers and garbage trucks set her on edge. “I walk the dogs at night, and talk to my husband up in the sky out loud,” she said. Sure, it’s strange knowing that the nearest Starbucks is 100 kms away, but when Howard’s mother asks when she’ll move back to Southern California, the answer is always the same: Not any time soon. “I thought I was going to be here temporarily,” she says. “Now I’m not planning on going anywhere else.”

Upside to a brand new home

When you buy a brand new home, you get the best of both worlds—all the traditional value you expect in a home, plus the advantages that only a newly built home can provide. First, it is the opportunity to get what you want in a house. There are numerous home models to consider, and builders to choose from to make that dream a reality. When you buy a brand new home, you get to choose your builder based on their reputation and track record. You know what you get. With a new home, you know how the house was built and what went into it—both what you can see and what is behind the walls. And if you have questions later, your builder will be there to give you helpful and accurate information. The quality of your new home is based on solid construction and attention to details. Professional new home builders combine the latest construction techniques with timeless craftsmanship to create homes that are comfortable, attractive and great to live in.
