No survivors in plane crash near Connector Kathy Michaels STAFF REPORTER

There are no survivors from the floatplane that crashed into a heavily wooded area Sunday night near Brenda Mines off the Okanagan Connector. The de Havilland Beaver was carrying two passengers and a pilot to Pitt Meadows from Kelowna when it hit the ground and burst into flames, shortly before 7 p.m. According to emergency crews that attended the scene, it appeared as though the pilot was trying to land on the highway, but came just short of that goal. “The distance from the road was 500 to 750 feet,” said Troy Russell, West Kelowna fire captain who co-ordinated the …IT LOOKED LIKE fire response last night. THEY MADE AN “You could see the diATTEMPT TO DO A rection of flight– and as bystanders have said—it LANDING ON THE looked like they made an HIGHWAY… attempt to do a landing on Capt. Troy Russell, the highway, but efforts West Kelowna were hindered by the topography.” firefighter The fuselage of the plane was intact, however as the plane came through the trees a wing was knocked off. Other wreckage was scattered in a 200 square-feet radius and flames whipped around the area. As rescue crews assessed what to do with the plane, Russell’s team attempted to snuff out small fires and hotspots. “To our advantage, it wasn’t an August fire, but we did have forestry on site. They deployed a working team up to the fire as well,” he said. “With their expertise, and the conditions there wasn’t a lot of threat as nightfall came.” As crews worked to mop up the scene, Russell said family members of those who died in the crash arrived.

Taxes expected to be hot item for mayors Alistair Waters ASSISTANT EDITOR

Kelowna Mayor Walter Gray says he thinks there could be a call for a new deal for municipalities in B.C. when as many as 86 mayors from across the province meet in Penticton later this week.

Gray, who said yesterday he had not seen an agenda for the inaugural meeting of B.C. mayors yet, said he expects the principle focus will be the impact of the federal, provincial and municipal government on taxpayers. “The three levels of government all have their

hands in the taxpayers pocket but to much different degrees,” said Gray. He said 50 per cent of the taxes people pay go to the federal government, 42 per cent go to province and “we have to run this place (municipality) on eight per cent.” The mayors’ meeting,

a first for the province, will gather mayors from large and small municipalities throughout B.C. to talk about issues on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Organized by Surrey’s Diane Watts, some have questioned if it is an attempt to replace the annu-

al Union of B.C. Municipalities convention which is held each September. But Gray echoed the comments of organizer Surrey Mayor Diane Watts, who has said that is not the case.

Hanson offers apology

STAFF REPORTER

ASSISTANT EDITOR

During a special meeting of the Regional District of the Central Okanagan board last week, regional director Patty Hanson apologized for previously calling for the resignation of chairman Robert Hobson and development services director Dan Plamondon. “I would like to make a formal public apology to chair Robert Hobson and director of development services Dan Plamondon for my statements at the regional district board meeting on April 23, 2012,” said Hanson. “I recognize that this has caused them personal grief and was an attack on their professional reputation, and as such, I unequivocally retract my statements that the entire board was deliberately misled by the chair and director. “I was frustrated with the process for rural development and commit to working with our staff, the chair and my colleagues on the board in the future to deal with issues such as this.” After the statement, the regional board held a vote of confidence in Hobson and Plamondon, which received unanimous endorsement by the board.

Kelowna is looking for financial assistance from the province, through the Union of B.C. Municipalities, to help it fight the mountain pine beetle. According to Blair Stewart, the city’s urban forestry supervisor, with 24 per cent of the trees in the city ponderosa pines and 60 to 80 per cent expected to be infected by 2018, the potential for serious damage here is high. “It’s not a question of if, but rather when,” Stewart told council Monday. While infestation rates have been slower here than in other parts of the

Pine beetle attack is taxing city’s finances province, the city has been active in trying to attack the problem, which has seen vast stands of trees in northern and central B.C. killed by the beetle in recent years. The city, through a partnership with the federal government, has received $1.27 million in funding through 2014 to help with beetle control measures. So far, the city’s main goal has been to assist with city-owned property. Under the funding being applied for from Victoria, the city could have up to 90 per cent of its costs, up to $100,000 and 75 per cent of its costs from $100,000 to

$400,000 re-imbused. Stewart said the city has made a $165,000 application for funding assistance. In addition to a beetle hotline that is provided to give the public information about the problem and possible solutions—especially private landowners who are affected—the city has fuel modification crews that have completed work at 29 sites where there is beetle-kill wood. Some of the hardest hit areas so far in the city include North Glenmore near the city’s landfill and areas out near Gallagher’s Canyon, said Stewart. awaters@kelownacapnews.com

Bus stop concession stand opportunity has no takers CONTRIBUTED

JAW DROPPING ART… UBC’s Okanagan campus fine arts undergraduate student Dylan Ranney will have a showing of his work in the Alternator Gallery at the Rotary Centre for the Arts next month. The gala opening will be held on June 1, 7 p.m. Ronney will feature several paintings and drawings in the exhibit.

Kelowna city council has found a company to run the food concession at Hot Sands Beach in City Park. But its bid to establish a concession stand at the Queensway bus terminus beside City Hall has come up empty. On Monday, council was told no one responded to the offer of a year-round concession at the downtown bus loop, prompting one councillor to say that could be because there are already restaurants in the area.

Coun. Andre Blanleil noted that there is a Subway sandwich shop very close by and it was clear there was no interest by any potential concessionaire. “So if there is no interest, I don’t think we should pursue this,” he said. As for the Hot Sands concession, it was awarded to Service Star F&B Services for three years, netting the city $4,500 this year, $5,000 next year and $5,500 in 2014. The rent for the location in 2011 was $1,000.

▼ OKANAGAN CAR SHARE

Co-op launches online survey The Okanagan Valley is currently without a formal car sharing service, but this is about to change. In order to explore the feasibility of establishing car sharing in the Okanagan and to identify the potential demand for car sharing in this area, the recently founded non-profit Okanagan Car Share Coop will launch its first online survey. The survey will be open until May 20 for all interested citizens. “Our objective is to develop a car sharing co-operative with a fleet of vehicles in the Okanagan and to provide environmentally and socially sustainable, affordable transportation alternatives to the Okanagan community,” said co-founder and board member Angela Reid-

Nagy, a former Kelowna city councillor. “The overall goal of the OCSC is to create a more diverse, multi-modal transportation network in the Okanagan Valley, while promoting GHG emissions reductions and providing real options for individuals and businesses looking to make a shift from the traditional vehicle ownership model.” With 2012 marked as the United Nations International Year of Co-operatives, the Okanagan Car Share Co-op already benefited from the sixth co-operative principle of co-ops supporting other co-ops, by attending the Federation of Canadian Carshare Co-operatives Conference in Winnipeg earlier this year. This was a great opportunity to learn from

well-established car share co-ops, such as Modo The Car Co-op in Vancouver, to car share co-op newcomers such as Peg City Car Co-op from Winnipeg. “The car of the future will be shared,” said Christian Brandt, co-founder of the Okanagan Car Share Co-op. “Through sharing systems, we can get the utility out of goods and services without the burden of ownership—and in ways that help build community and allow for more equitable access to resources.“ With the help of information collected through the survey, the OCSC will have a better understanding of how car sharing could be developed in Kelowna. The survey seeks to understand the diverse

travel patterns of people in the Okanagan to identify strategically smart pickup and drop-off locations for the shared cars. The survey can be found at www.surveymonkey.com/s/575KNYF.

CAR SHARING FACTS

• People who join a car share service can access a car/truck/van for any number of hours they choose to • People pay a (refundable) membership fee and are then charged just for their vehicle usage (per hour) • The car share service handles all the maintenance, insurance and fuel costs • Members reserve their time using an online reservation system, accessible via smartphones.

City advocates for Drinking Water Week

Together with the B.C. Water and Waste Association and the province of British Columbia, the City of Kelowna will be a vocal supporter of B.C. Drinking Water Week, May 13 to 19. “This week will highlight the importance of having access to clean, safe and reliable drinking water,” said Adrian Weaden, the city’s water quality and pumpstations supervisor. “The safety and availability of drinking water is often taken for granted as people don’t quite realize how much tap water plays into their daily routine.” The average water use per person per day in the Okanagan is 675 litres. With the demand for water constantly increasing, significant costs and energy are required to treat our drinking water in order for it to be clean, safe and delivered to our taps. According to the BCWWA, one of the first steps to effective stewardship and conservation of water is understanding the process in which water is collected, treated and delivered to faucets. The City of Kelowna’s water utility serves highquality water to more than 65,000 residents and more than 1,700 businesses, representing 53 per cent of Kelowna’s population. The city’s utility draws water at four locations from Okanagan Lake. It is then treated with ultra-violet light and chlorine before being distributed throughout the city’s network. Water is then pumped to the utility’s 24 reservoirs before being distributed to homes and businesses. The Poplar Point pump station is the city’s main pump station, drawing water at rates up to 1,600 litres per second with a peak capacity of 100 million litres per day during the high summer irrigation season.

Father of man charged with murder granted bail at $100,000 Roger Knox CONTRIBUTOR

A Cherryville man charged in connection with a 2011 murder in Armstrong has been granted bail. But Stephen Roy Foerster can only leave custody if he comes up with the $100,000 in bail ordered by B.C. Supreme Court Judge Frank Cole Monday morning at the Vernon

Court House. As of Monday afternoon, Foerster had not come up with the amount. Foerster, 58, has been charged with obstruction of justice and accessory after the fact in connection with the homicide of Armstrong teenager Taylor Van Diest, who was killed Oct. 31. “The judge wrote a decision according to law and gave him bail,” said

Foerster’s lawyer, Bill Firman. “He was entitled to bail.” Cole also ordered Foerster not to have contact with a number of people and, should he be released on bail, he is not allowed to be in Armstrong. Van Diest was found badly injured by family and friends near the Rosedale Avenue railway tracks after she failed to show up for Halloween

festivities with friends. She died that night in Kelowna hospital. Foerster’s son, Matthew Stephen Foerster, 26, is facing a first degree murder charge in connection with Van Diest’s death. Stephen Foerster’s next court appearance is slated for May 23 in Vernon, while Matthew Foerster is scheduled to next appear in Kelowna court in June.

Liberals try for election gag order again Tom Fletcher CONTRIBUTOR

The B.C. government is attempting to restore limits on third-party election spending that were struck down by a judge before the 2009 vote. Attorney General Shirley Bond has introduced amendments that would put limits on spending by unions, business groups and other non-party advertisers in the 40 days before the official start of an election campaign. A previous 60-day limit was challenged by seven public sector unions, led by the B.C. Teachers’ Federation, and rejected by a B.C. Supreme Court judge as an unjustified restriction on freedom of speech. Current rules restrict party and non-party spending during a formal 28-day election campaign, but contain no limits on spending before that period. The government intends to submit the proposed 40-day restriction to the B.C. Supreme Court before it takes effect. If a judge approves, the new restrictions would apply for the election set for May of 2013. NDP justice critic Leonard Krog said if the B.C. Liberals want to reform election spending, they should ban corporate and union donations to political parties as the NDP and B.C. Conservative parties have advocated, Krog said.

Upcoming dates: May 26, June 13 and September 12.

First Reading has been given to OCP Bylaw Amendment 10702 intended to make miscellaneous adjustments for Council directed and staff initiated amendments: · Future Land Use Mapping changes at 1510 Hwy 33 W / 1500 Mayden Road; 1000 - 1060 Manhattan Drive; 145 – 163 Asher Road / 160 – 168 Asher Road / 165 Dougall Road / 110-150 Hwy 33 W / 160 Hwy 33 W / 190 Hwy 33 W / 250 Hwy 33 W / 115 – 135 Roxby Road / 166 – 170 Rutland Road North; 5007 / 5019 Chute Lake Road / 5059 Treadgold Court; 1939 Pandosy / 504 Sutherland Avenue; 2765 Dunster Road. · Add new Housing policies to reflect Council approved language from the Housing Strategy; · Minor wording changes to Policy 5.25.1 Retail Impact Analysis and the definition of Purpose-Built Rental Housing.

Playing ‘our game’ outside

Crash investigation continues

Wade Paterson STAFF REPORTER

Justin Putz and his team were down 2-1 during the halftime intermission of their second street hockey game on Saturday. The temperature was hot and his troops were tired, but they still spitted out words of encouragement to try and turn the game’s momentum. The second half looked completely different than the first. The play opened up and goals started pouring in at both ends of the street. Putz’s team was down two goals before clawing back to tie the match with only three minutes left in the game. In the end, their opponents scored a late one and posted a 7-6 victory to conclude an exciting match.

The result was one of hundreds of story lines that came out of the Hockey Night in Canada Play On! Kelowna street hockey tournament this past weekend. Over 140 teams, spread out through 10 divisions, battled it out on the streets in front of Prospera Place. For Putz, the tournament is an excuse to get a group of friends together for a weekend of sports. “We’ve got guys from Saskatchewan, Alberta, Vancouver and Kelowna. We’re all buddies. We just get back together and play some hockey for a weekend,” said Putz. Becky Hughes, event manager for Kelowna and Burnaby Play On! tournaments, said that numbers were up 30 per cent from last year in the 2012 tournament. “Kelowna is a pretty

manageable event for us—it’s more of a fun event with a nice site and it’s a lot smaller (than Burnaby),” said Hughes. According to Hughes, there are a range of skill levels that take part in Play On!; however, those in the Elite division have a lot to play for. “The winner advances to a national championship this September in Niagara Falls.” The other winners aren’t left empty-handed, said Hughes. Younger kids have the opportunity to win trophies while the older competitors might get their hands on gift certificates or other prizes provided by sponsors. Sean McCutcheon, the goalie for Everyday I’m Byfuglien, was the hero for his team in their first Saturday competition. He stole the show in a

Plane from A1

shootout to give the team its first victory of the day. Although his crew was competing in the intermediate league, he said that games can get fairly feisty. “It gets intense because you want to win—I got run over twice today,” said McCutcheon. Hughes said that organizers are aware that tempers can rise in close games, so they’ve taken measures to ensure Play On! remains a fun event. “We have security on hand watching the games—slashing, highsticking (and fighting) are not allowed.” By the end of this summer, more than 1 million Canadians will have participated in a Play On! tournament in one of 68 different locations throughout the country.

“For myself and rest of (the crew,) we really felt for the family members, knowing the nature of what they were dealing with,” he said. “When you’re dealing with a forest fire it’s basically property protection… this was a new dynamic.” The family were referred to the RCMP, to go through the proper channels moving forward. The Transportation Safety Board

dispatched two investigators to the site Monday morning to assess the wreckage and ascertain the cause of the crash, said board spokesperson Chris Krepski. This was expected to take some time, Krepski noted, as investigators will have to document and photograph the crash site, investigate flight control and the engine records, and take that information back to a lab for closer analysis.

Gray said he also hoped to get a better perspective from the province’s “big city” mayors at this week’s meeting because he feels his city is becoming a “big” city and is now shares many of the same problems larger urban cities encounter.

Telling your story most accurately —the Capital News

Do your kids think peas come from a bag in the freezer? Do they know potatoes grow underground? Could they recognize a carrot growing if they saw the green tops poking out of the soil? A lot of parents and grandparents are realizing many of today’s children are growing up without an understanding of where their food really comes from. Perhaps you are a seasoned gardener or someone who has just start-

ed thinking about getting your hands dirty. I don’t have a lot of gardening experience myself, but I do try to grow a few things each year so my kids can appreciate how food is grown. Whatever your gardening experience may be, spring has sprung and now is the perfect time to think about planting and growing with your children. Young children have a natural curiosity about the world around them and gardening is a perfect way to tie in valuable lessons like patience—as they wait for vegetables to grow—and responsibility—as they take over watering duties and the value of healthy eating. Children are often more enthusiastic about trying vegetables they have grown themselves. Gardening doesn’t necessarily require a plot of land or hours of weeding. Gardening can happen in containers on a balcony or patio.

In fact, many garden plants such as herbs, lettuce, radishes, and tomatoes do very well in containers. Raised beds can eliminate the need for weeding and are great for compact spaces. Try the square foot garden method and give your child a square of their own to care for. This popular method teaches gardening skills without being overwhelming. Watching a plant grow from a seed is like magic for young children, but slow germination rates can be trying for even the most patient child. Plant a mixture of seeds and potted plants to help keep their interest. Sunflowers and beans are fast growing plants from seed. My son started a sunflower from a seed at preschool last year and was absolutely amazed at how tall it grew; he was so proud to share the seeds with all of his little

Walk of Memories to remember loved ones

SCHOOL GRAND OPENING…Aberdeen Hall, an independent, non-denominational university preparatory school next to UBC Okanagan celebrated the grand opening of their new high school last Saturday. The ribbon-cutting ceremony took place during the school’s Celebration of Education, which saw members of the community, Aberdeen Hall families and local dignitaries touring the campus, meeting the teachers and taking part in activities such as archery, tennis and volleyball. With the addition of the new high school ,Aberdeen Hall’s current student body of 300 now has the space and new facilities to continue their studies from Preschool all the way to Grade 12. On hand for the ribbon cutting pictured above were (from left) Ernie Moreau, Alexis Thomson, MP Ron Cannan, Jeremy Charney, Gina Charney, Nadia Holzhey, Michael Holzhey and head of school Christopher Grieve.

Keep animals out of your garbage Don’t let your garbage becoming a smorgasbord for area wildlife. This trash tip from the Regional Waste Reduction Office comes now that spring has arrived and more animals are coming out of hibernation hungry and on the prowl for food. “The best advice if you live in an area susceptible to wildlife is to reduce the risk of conflict by taking responsibility for your trash” said waste reduction facilitator Rae Stewart. “Bears and other animals have a keen sense of smell, so the idea is not to attract them to your garbage unnecessarily. “If they find your

waste, not only can they make a real mess, but could also pose a risk to you and your family, or to themselves by attracting the unnecessary attention of conservation officers.” All garbage, yard waste and recycling carts need to be accessible for pickup and with lids unlocked for emptying between the hours of 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. on the day of collection only. Putting carts out the night before or days before pickup is due, or leaving them out on a continuous basis will only add to the potential for critter trouble in your neighborhood. The B.C. Conservation

Foundation Bear Aware website also suggests keeping your garbage in a secured shed or garage until pickup day, and recommends not stockpiling or burying garbage. As well, it reminds that fish and meat remains should not be left outside and suggests freezing or keeping them in a cool place until they can be placed into the garbage on your collection day. “Many residents have had success with using bungee straps to secure the lid of their waste carts,” Stewart said. “Keep in mind though, any security devices you choose to deter wildlife from your trash must

be released on the day of your collection so the lid can open freely and the container contents be emptied into the automated truck.” The public is also reminded to take care with what is disposed of in backyard composters. Things like meat, fish, bones, cooking oil, grease, and dairy products should never be left outside or put into a compost bin, as this can attract wildlife to your backyard unnecessarily as well. For more information, visit the Bear Aware websites www.bearaware. bc.ca or www.env.gov. bc.ca/wld/documents/ bear_hm.htm.

Kelowna General Hospital and the Central Okanagan Hospice House invite the community to participate in a Walk of Memories this Sunday, May 20. Coinciding with B.C. Bereavement Day, this walk is an opportunity for residents to come together as a community to honour and remember those who have died at KGH and Hospice House over the past year. The walk provides an interactive way for bereaved people to acknowledge their loss by remembering together in a healthy, inclusive, and family-friendly way. KGH is hosting the walk this year as an alternative to the in-house Celebration

of Life Memorial Service. The event sponsorship partners include the Central Okanagan Hospice House, B.C. Cancer Agency and the Salvation Army who have generously sponsored the event with refreshments. The Walk of Memories will take place from 2 to 3:30 p.m. on Sunday, May 20, at Waterfront Park, starting from The Dolphins across from Prospera Place. The walking route will be about one kilometre in length. Four memory stations are placed along the route. The event is free and wheelchair accessible. And volunteers will be available as walking partners.

▼ OUR VIEW

Party name not the problem

M

arc Dalton, Maple Ridge-Mission MLA, thinks his party, the B.C. Liberals, should change its name. He says the name—in place since the provincial Liberals formed in 1991 (and the one voters have elected to govern three consecutive terms)—is confusing to some centre-right voters, now that the B.C. Conservatives have surged to solid third-party status. He says those who are federal Conservatives will have a

hard time voting B.C. Liberal next time. Last month, the NDP won two B.C. byelections, in Chilliwack-Hope and Port MoodyCoquitlam. The Liberals came second in both, the Conservatives third. The Liberals fear more vote splitting in the May 2013 provincial election. But changing the party’s name won’t prevent that. Doing so would seem even more confusing to voters, which may be the point. It’s easy to see why the Lib-

erals would want to rebrand the party, distance itself from past scandals and failures, and try to reverse falling popularity. But whateve— the B.C. Alliance Party is being floated about— it’s still the same cast of characters who brought you the B.C. Rail and HST fiascoes. Whether or not Kevin Falcon and other cabinet ministers run again isn’t going to change that. And changing the party’s name, to something more progressive, won’t erase the past, or fool many.

B.C. doesn’t need a new centre-right party—it already has two. The B.C. Conservatives beat the Liberals to the punch. Trying to decide between the two is what’s confusing. Are the Liberals about families or business? A tiger can’t change its stripes. Changing the party’s name is just painting over them. As long as the B.C. Conservatives are around, the right will be split. And that’s what the NDP is counting on.

TUESDAY QUESTION:

Americans have gay old time with same-sex marriage issue

I

t’s an issue that won’t go away in the U.S.—same-sex marriage. Now that President Barack Obama has made his personal feelings on the subject clear—he supports it—Americans are in a tizzy about what it means when their country’s leader says he supports something so “controversial.” Will it cost him votes in the upcoming presidential election? Will it sway those who contribute the huge amounts of money it takes to run a presidential campaign? Will he follow the lead of loose-lipped vice-president Joe Biden on any other politically incendiary subjects? (Biden came out in support of same-sex marriage the week before Obama did.)

That country’s CITY dering. leading news network, Here in CanCONFIDENTIAL CNN, even has a speada, we dealt with cial section on its webthe issue—to the dispage called Obama gruntlement of the and Same-Sex MarConservative Party riage, listing its latest which was in opposstories about the issue.

As a re-

sult of Parliament’s move seven years ago, the institution of marriage did not crumble when same-sex couples were allowed to legally wed, heterosexual couples’ marriages were not impacted in any way and life went on. Our neighbours to the south should once again take a page from Canada’s book and do the right thing and allow men and women to marry the men or women they love, regardless of sexual orientation. To do anything else is simply wrong. But in the U.S. it’s up to individual states to rule on marriage and while change is happening, it’s moving slowly. Some feel its a moral issue, others feels its a rights issue. And they are both right. But marriage is also a civil

issue—taxes, child support, benefits, pensions—and that’s where the state comes in. If religious views preclude recognition of someone’s marriage, that’s up to the holder. But the state should not have that same it’s-OK-for-somebut-not-for-others prerogative. Obama will find out in November if his personal view makes a difference to U.S. voters. But given that Americans are upset over other issues like health care reform and the U.S. economy, same-sex marriage may not be the deciding factor at the ballot box anyway.

▼ CANCER AWARENESS

Quality, Value & Savings.

KSS students keep memory, fundraising alive To the editor: May 10, 2012 marked 10 years since we lost our teenage son to cancer. In 2002 it would have been Connor’s graduation from KSS, a school and environment he loved. Eleven years ago, when Connor was first diagnosed, several of his friends approached Fane Triggs, the rec leadership teacher at Kelowna Secondary School wanting to do something to raise money and awareness for my son’s disease. They decided on a drive-thru breakfast. There were humble beginnings in the KSS parking. Our family attended and were moved to see his

friends and peers so committed to the project. Over the years Cancer Awareness Week at KSS has grown beyond anyone’s expectations and each year Connor is recognized as the impetus, a gesture that overwhelms us as most of today’s staff and students never knew him. Connor, the healthy, happy, all-round student represents the truth that no one is immune from this dreaded disease. Our family has attended many of the assemblies that kick off the week and are always so impressed with the maturity, professionalism and sincerity of the program which changes every

year. For example there are guest speakers, video presentations, personal stories, students singing original songs and during each assembly you could hear a pin drop. The drive-thru breakfast, now held in the Rona parking lot, has grown into a highly efficient, wellattended event. Pouring rain, blowing wind or sun shine, it doesn’t matter; every year the committee is there at 6 a.m. setting up for the 6:30 a.m. start and each student greets you with an abundance of cheer, enthusiasm and gratitude. Then there is the headshaving portion of the week where many brave

students are motivated by the cause to have their locks shorn to raise money and awareness. This gesture is truly not one that is usually credited to teens as image is quite a priority. To attend grad, all things summer or relocating to post-secondary opportunities—all done with little or no hair—this takes a brave person as does losing one’s hair to chemo. The Grade 12 rec leadership classes, under the tutelage of Mr. Triggs, deserves praise and recognition for growing Cancer Awareness Week over 11 years to what it is today, but also the students and staff who stand behind this fundraiser every year

deserve recognition as approximately $250,000. has been donated to the Cancer Agency of the Southern Interior through these efforts. Our family is humbled that Connor was able to ignite a passion in the heart of KSS that continues to burn, bringing awareness and raising funds for a disease that knows no boundaries. Of note: Assembly May 23; Drive-Thru Breakfast at the Rona parking lot off Springfield May 24; and Head Shaving May 25. For information about these call 250-768-5191. Deb Cochrane, West Kelowna

▼ SPENDING DECISIONS

Millions for overpass, little for Westside Road To the editor: My letter is in response to MLA Ben Stewart’s recent comments about Westside Road. Central Okanagan Regional District director Jim Edgeson has been pointing out the dismal condition of the road for a number of years now. (Wrong Kind of Atten-

tion for Westside Road, May 8 Capital News.) But it takes an upcoming election and a BCAA survey naming Westside Road as the worst road in B.C. to get any interest or movement from this Liberal government. Stewart mentions that the planned repairs will not be the “Cadillac” ver-

sion of road work. I guess not, as the Westbank First Nation received the keys to the Cadillac in the form of a tunnel that leads nowhere and an overpass into their new shopping center to the tune of $41 million. I should also point out that Westbank First Nations received another $8

million in compensation and was due to receive 700 acres of publicly held land in exchange for seven-plus acres of land. It was only public outcry and a great deal of public pressure that cancelled this land exchange. Thanks to West Kelowna Mayor Doug Findlater and the West Kelow-

na council for not backing down on the issue. There is a saying that anyone can spend money but few can spend it wisely. This Liberal government has proven time and time again that it is unable to spend tax payers’ funds wisely. Graeme James, Kelowna

Neighbour has had enough of cotton pickin’ trees in Ben Lee Park spewing fluff balls all around We live right next door to the park and cannot escape the direct line of fire from those trees. Our parking lot has the appearance of a snow blizzard having just passed through. The fluff balls are ankle deep. It gets in everywhere—

nose, mouth, eyes—it even gets in our car when we open the doors to get in. Nothing would please me more than to see those trees ripped out of the ground and replaced with something less polluting and more proud-

▼ ROAD SAFETY

Trucking puts onus on drivers To the editor: Apparently the trucking safety rules were made to protect the trucking companies and put the onus on the drivers to make sure the trucks were safe to be on the road. Suppose there are truck problems and the driver does his/her inspection and turns the report in to the company and does

not fix the truck Also suppose the owner is short of money and needs the trip to make a profit. He insists that the trip go ahead. The driver now has the choice of driving the truck as it is and possibly killing someone or getting caught driving the rig, thus losing his license. Nothing seems to happen to the company owner,

ly Canadian, such as the stout Canadian maple tree which does not pollute the atmosphere with unwanted cotton fluff balls and provides spectacular colours in the fall. Is there anyone we could approach to address this aggravating situation?

Perhaps if enough people voiced their dissent in this instance, something would hopefully be done about it.

Understand due diligence of accountants

W

hen you require an accountant to prepare year-end documents, there are certain items that are required depending on the engagement. For example, an audit requires access to all the financial and non-financial documents and access to office personnel. The purpose is so that the accountant performing the audit can draw reasonable conclusions in order to form an opinion on the financial statements compiled by the company. Most people understand what an audit is and that all or substantially all information is looked at so most are okay with providing complete information and extra information if asked. In a review engagement, users of the financial statements will be relying on the accountant’s report of negative insurance meaning that nothing out of the ordinary was found. They will also be relying on the information contained in the financial statements. Because of this reliance, the information that the accountant performing the review requires

BEHIND THE COUNTER

Gabriele Banka should allow the accountant to perform procedures such as enquiry, analytical procedures and discussion with the officers of the company. If some questionable items arise after performing these procedures, the accountant may be required to perform some procedures normally considered auditing procedures. The reason is to be assured that there is nothing misleading in the financial statements that needs to be corrected or disclosed in the review engagement report. With the above two types of engagement, if the accountant asks for an item and it isn’t provided, then that is considered to be a scope limitation, which means that the accountant is unable to determine if the financial statements are correct or not because not all the information was provided. In a compilation, or a notice to reader, the re-

The reason to ask for proof of payment to the Registrar of Companies is that if your company is no longer registered, then it is no longer in existence and there is no point in producing financial statements for a company that is no longer in existence. The other reason that an accountant needs information on a corporation’s shareholders is for the Canada Revenue Agency. When filing a corporate tax return, the schedule 50 requires that any person or corporation holding more than 10 per cent of the shares of a corporation be disclosed. What is required is the name and the social insurance number of an individual, or if the shareholder is a corporation, the business number and the percentage of common or preferred shares held. So the next time you wonder why you are being asked for such non-financial information, you can rest assured that it can only help the credibility of your financial statements.

So what about the non-financial information that may be required? Accountants routinely ask for the corporate minute book and for proof that the appropriate fees have been paid to the Registrar of Companies. The reason for the need to see the corporate minute book, especially if the client is new, is that the accountant needs to know who the directors are and how many directors there are so that the financial statements can be prepared with the correct number of signature lines on the balance sheet. The accountant also needs to know what the share structure is to disclose that information in the notes for the readers of the financial statements. The accountant needs to see the Articles of Incorporation to determine if there are any restrictions on the payment of dividends on any class of shares. Finally, the accountant needs to see that the company is holding annual meetings and keeping minutes that disclose the payment of dividends and/or bonuses to shareholders /directors in keeping with the requirements of the B.C. Company’s Act.

quirement is for the accountant to arrange the financial information received from the client into financial statements. The information needs to be arithmetically correct, but the accuracy and completeness does not need to be verified to the extent that is required in the other two types of engagements. As I have stated before, although the financial statements in a compilation engagement do not need to comply with generally accepted accounting principles, they also cannot be false or misleading. How do we as accountants ensure that the financial statements are not false or misleading? The method most commonly used is by third party verification such as balancing the bank to the bank statement or balancing the payroll withholdings to the Canada Revenue Agency payroll account. A rule of thumb is that if the company is able to comply with the statutory requirements, the statements are more likely to represent the financial results fairly. There is also some reliance on the bookkeeper that performed the data entry.

BUSINESS

▼ WORKPLACE

Think twice before hiring your spouse at the office I

n smaller businesses, such as professional offices, achieving the right mix of boss and staff is critical. Losing that sometimes hard-won balance can have rather disastrous results. Professionals—for example doctors, lawyers or dentists—are particularly reliant upon their staff. They work closely together and many professionals would say that finding the right staff, and keeping them happy, is the most important factor in the success of the business. Losing that happy state is never more likely to happen than when the owner suddenly decides his or her spouse should join the group. It’s a fairly common occurrence in smaller, owner-operated businesses of this type that the owner’s spouse will join the mix. He or she will, due to the relationship with the owner, often join in a managerial capacity such as “office manager.”

From a family inYOU WORK come perspective, this HERE

all makes sense. If the owner can pay his or her spouse to be the office manager, rather than an outsider, more Robert of the profits of the Smithson business stay within the family and this serves as a good income-splitting technique for tax purposes. But, when the owner’s spouse is introduced to the business, the existing employees can be very, very unhappy with the situation. Aside from the likelihood that the other employees will perceive there to be favouritism at play, the actions of the spouse/manager are likely to cause other employees to take offence. An example of how a spousal injection can be poisonous for the workplace atmosphere played out recently before the Ontario Superior Court of Justice. Monique Drake was a long-serving medical secretary for Dr. Peter Blach. After 12 years of seemingly happy employment, the relationship

was terminated in early 2011. Drake sued for wrongful dismissal damages. Blach took the position that there was just cause for summary dismissal. Drake’s evidence was that, in October 2010 after Blach remarried, the work environment at the clinic changed for the worse, becoming “tense and poisonous.” Blach’s spouse became involved in the workings of the office and, according to Drake, treated both patients and staff poorly. Very soon after the arrival of Blach’s spouse, Drake received a letter listing a series of complaints relating to her performance and conduct, imposing a variety of new procedures, and asserting that Drake was overpaid. A few months later, Blach’s spouse informed Drake that her pay was, due to an “error,” almost $15,000 too high and that this would be corrected. Another letter, in March 2011, cited additional complaints with Drake’s performance and her resistance to the unilateral reduction in her salary and provided her with working notice of termination.

A particularly insensitive touch in the working notice letter was the twosentence closing sequence, “(Y)our job will be closely checked and supervised and should you commit an act which would constitute cause for dismissal, your employment will be terminated immediately without further notice owed. We thank you for your service and wish you good luck in the future.” It comes as no surprise that, due to the stress from this negative work environment, Drake was forced to take a medical leave during the working notice period and never returned to work for Blach. The court determined there was no written evidence of any disciplinary measures having been imposed on Drake prior to October 2010 (when Blach’s spouse arrived on the scene). Blach had, to the contrary, given Drake salary increases during the course of her employment. The court accepted Drake’s evidence that the workplace environment “changed in October, 2010 when the defendant’s new wife took over running the office.” The court commented, “It is iron-

ic, that the defendant believed the plaintiff had been taking advantage of him when she was his only employee; and he now has his wife as office manager plus a medical secretary to do what (Drake) was doing alone.” As there was, quite obviously, no just cause for summary dismissal, Drake was awarded damages reflecting a notice period of nine months. Her damages were based on her salary at the time of the termination (not the unilaterally reduced salary). The introduction of Blach’s new spouse as the de facto office manager cost his clinic a long-serving employee in Drake, produced a lawsuit and an award of damages for wrongful dismissal, and resulted in his staff contingent doubling from one to two. That’s a classic example of why a business owner should think twice before hiring his or her spouse.

Manly high heel shuffle for charity Wade Paterson STAFF REPORTER

THE FINALISTS of the second annual Red Shoe Shuffle on Saturday try to find a last piece of women’s clothing in order to secure a victory.

NO TIME FOR BREAKFAST OR LUNCH? WHY NOT TRY

Sunday Brunch

Our regular menu features delicious soups, gourmet sandwiches, hot entrées, salad bar, fresh pastries and much more. Sunday menu features brunch favourites and weekly seasonal items.

The event was part of Royal LePage’s fourth annual Garage Sale for Shelter. Since 2009, the Canada-wide event has raised more than $850,000 to support women’s shelters across the country and help fund long-term solutions to end violence in Canadian homes. The garage sale is a national initiative that takes place in over 120 locations throughout Canada; however, the high heels race is unique to Kelowna. “We thought outside the box last year and came up with it,” said Clegg. “It’s been a very effective way of increasing

what we actually raise for the shelters.” Over $9,000 had been raised locally before the actual race. Clegg anticipated that, with funds continuing to roll in during the cross-dressing relay, the local total would easily exceed $10,000. The women’s shelters that will benefit from the fundraiser are local chapters of the New Opportunities for Women Canada Society and the Elizabeth Fry Society, as well as the Kelowna Women’s shelter. The Royal LePage Shelter Foundation was created in 1999.

Twelve men and 24 bright red high heels raced through the Orchard Plaza parking lot on Saturday. Each man was attempting to become champion of the second annual Red Shoe Shuffle for Shelter. But more importantly, the men risked ankle injuries and painful blisters to help raise money for a good cause. “I think they did very well,” said Anita Clegg, a Royal LePage realtor and the Kelowna representative for the Royal LePage

Shelter Foundation. “What has always really surprised me is how eager they are to put these red shoes on and run.” The Red Shoe Shuffle for Shelter required each participant to dress up head-to-toe in women’s clothing, put on a pair of high heels and then race to the finish line. In the end it was Andy Shillington, winemaker at The View Winery, who was most in touch with his feminine side. “I thought I had absolutely no chance, but I was stable on my heels and off we went,” said Shillington.

Global traveller finds entrepreneurial vision in the Okanagan

“Vision without action is a day dream but action without vision is a nightmare.” his Japanese proverb is ever so true. I have learned to believe that the single thing that sets apart an entrepreneur from a small business owner is their strength of vision. True entrepreneurs have a massive vision, which is needed to create the momentum to develop their venture. Along with vision, as I have written here many times in the past, one of the most fundamental parts of growing an entrepreneurial venture is leading an retaining a team so that you can leverage your time. Without leadership skills, that important factor becomes quite difficult. The focus of my column this week is a person who has truly travelled the world for many years, growing as a person in dramatic fashion along the way and never ceasing to learn about her-

T

r

ENTREPRENEURIAL SPIRIT

Joel Young self and what today can be identified as her vision of truth— that all things are possible. Recently, I met Carmen Sparg, co-partner of Total Office Business Furniture. I learned about her from one of her management staff members who is associated with our Okanagan Valley Entrepreneurs Society. It didn’t take me long to realize that Carmen Sparg never sits still, and has grown into a dynamic being of great potential. For my column today, I was particularly interested in the root of Sparg’s journey, which began in the African country of Zimbabwe, which borders on South Africa. Her father ran a plumbing/construction venture with a surveying

consulting practice. Her brother, who has become a mortage broker, and her were raised by their stay-at-home mom. After Sparg completed her business economics certification at a Technology College in South Africa, she worked as a controller in several large companies. That provided her with hands-on experience in business management. The next few years of her personal journey started with working for various corporate entities in Europe during 1992 and’93. Returning to Johannesburg, South Africa, she worked for a television manufacturing company, then spent a brief sojourn with an electronics firm. She proceeded to then have her first child while settling in East London, South Africa, where she gained more entrepreneurial skills development while honing her skills also as a homemaker and mother. Spending four years working for a securi-

ty company, getting married and having her second child didn’t slow down Sparg one bit as the family decided to move to Ireland for a few years in 2000, an opportunity to accumulate sufficient funds to bring them to their ultimate travel destination—Canada. At this point, Sparg had me dizzy trying to keep track of her family’s excursions, but I confess it was getting fun trying to keep up. I asked her if she could describe what prompted Canada for her family to settle, and she replied that Canada was one of the English-speaking nations of the world that she and her husband felt would be fruitful as a country to raise their two children. At the same time, she also cited how Canada offered potential for job and career paths for the couple. It was while working for the Irish company that Sparg discovered her employer had a business connection to Kelowna, thus

the Okanagan became the target destination for their future as immigrants to Canada. After moving to Kelowna in 2003, Sparg and her husband struggled to find suitable employment. Ironically, she began a position with the company that today she proudly is a partner in the office furnishings industry sector. She worked for six years as an employee, gaining enough self-confidence believing she could venture out on her own as a bona fide Canadian entrepreneur. Through her own process of reflection and exploring startups, Sparg decided the time was right, for her, to “take the plunge” into entrepreneurship. She resigned from her employment with some trepidation of what the future might hold. When her resignation notice was served, the opportunity arose quickly for an owner/partner buyout, and Sparg had suddenly arrived at the

threshold of Canadian entrepreneurship before she knew what happened. The rest of the story is an Okanagan history lesson. From the violent racial abolishment of the South African apartheid system that claimed the lives of some of her immediate family members to Canada’s new world of entrepreneurial adventure, Carmen Sparg has responded to the challenge before her. Through her partnership in Total Office Business Furnishings with business partner Roy Collins, supported by a truly remarkable industry “family” assembled around her, the business domain for Total Office has spread from Kelowna to throughout the B.C Interior for existing and new office products, with Western Canada as the next step for growth. Sparg cites her key strength as the ability to engage people in all facets of life’s journey. I can vouch for that, as Carmen is truly a professional person who seeks the best in

people she has on her staff team, those with whom she cites as customers and those who are her genuine friends. Before I leave the story of my new friend, let me assert that Total Office is a leading supplier of office systems and related office furniture products, established now for 14 years. The business has been built on a platform of design, product leadership and responsiveness to customer needs with long relationships the likes I have not witnessed in many industries in this region. Stay tuned Okanagan for this relatively young company has only just begun, and please remember: “Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but…by the moments that take our breath away.” Joel Young is an entrepreneurial leadership coach, consultant, educator and the founder of the Okanagan Valley Entrepreneurs Society. www.eagleyoung@shaw.ca

Heart care clinic offered

Heart disease continues to be one of the leading causes of death in Canadians. A Statistics Canada 2008 report on Morality, released on Oct. 18, 2011, identifies heart disease and stroke as two of the three leading causes of death in Canada. The report also recognizes women over 40 as being a demographic that needs to be particularly careful of developing heart disease, especially if the following factors are part of their lives: • smoking • being overweight • an inactive lifestyle combined with high stress • high cholesterol, high blood pressure and high blood glucose levels For those wondering about the condition of their heart and the possibility of developing heart disease, now is the time to find out by booking a oneon-one consultation with a London Drugs patientcare pharmacist at the Healthy Heart Clinic. These clinics are available at various times including evenings and weekends. Patient-care pharmacists will perform a test for blood pressure, cholesterol and blood glucose levels through a simple finger prick blood sample, and take weight and waist-hip measurements for clinic participants. Pharmacists will assess the likelihood of developing heart disease and show ways to minimize this risk, including improvements in cardiovascular health. Healthy Heart Clinic participants will take home a Heart Health Information Kit including a personal assessment, heart health care plan, informational pamphlets, and a coupon for a blood pressure monitor. The 45-minute clinic is $15 per person. Clinics will be held across Western Canada with a clinic in Westbank on Monday, May 28, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and in Kelowna on Thursday, May 31, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

SPORTS Okanagan A’s 2nd in league Kevin Parnell STAFF REPORTER

At 16-and-4 in the B.C. Premier Baseball League, the Okanagan Athletics are proving they are one of the top midget baseball teams in B.C. On Saturday they showed they also have each other’s backs. The Athletics swept the White Rock Tritons in a four-game series in Kelowna, improving its BCPBL record to 16-and4, second place in the 13team league. The series featured two extra innings games and two blowouts—all wins for Okanagan—as well as a bench clearing melee that started after a White Rock player slid into Athletics catcher Morgan Lofstrom during Saturday’s double-header. “You don’t want to see that but our players are sticking up for each other,� said Athletics coach Evan Bailey. “We’re not dirty. We play the right way. It was just one of those things. We want to beat teams on the scoreboard and that’s what we have been doing.� The fact that Okana-

gan players came out of the dugout to support their catcher could be a sign that they are no longer one of the BCPBL’s lower echelon teams, something that hasn’t happened during the club’s existence in the Premier Baseball League. This year however is different as the Athletics have won 10 of 11 games and sit solidly in second, only behind perennial powerhouse Langley. And Bailey says the team has yet to really put it all together. “I try not to be too negative but I’m never really satisfied either,� said Bailey. “We seem to get off to a slow start every weekend. If anything it’s a positive because when we do put everything together, watch out. The important thing is that although I don’t think we played that well, we are making strides and getting better every weekend. If you look at the start of the year until now, we have gotten better in every area.� On Saturday in Kelowna, the Athletics opened the series with a 3-2 extra innings win over White Rock before winning the second game 13-

OKANAGAN A’S catcher Morgan Lofstrom is upended in a play at the plate during a four game B.C. Premier Baseball League series in Kelowna on the weekend. The A’s won all four games from White Rock. 3. Then on Sunday it was a 2-1 extra innings win by the A’s before a 13-0 shutout victory. Bailey says the club needs to work on getting off to a quicker start. “It’s really important

to get off to a good start. It puts you in a strong position,� he said. “Our goal is to be a top three team to get a home playoff series. There are high expectations here but with that being said they are reaso-

nable because we have a pretty special group here.� The Athletics will hit the road this weekend, heading to Coquitlam for a four game set against the Reds who sit at 11-9. Bailey says they hope to con-

tinue playing well. “We’re going to stick with our goal of winning series,� he said. “That’s been our goal all year. We’re going to see a stronger team than we have the past two week-

ends. I like playing on the road and the guys like playing on the road. There are less distractions.� The Athletics return home June 2 and 3. kparnell@kelownacapnews.com

Okanagan Challenge take it on the chin in opening weekend Kevin Parnell STAFF REPORTER

It was a tough start to the Pacific Coast Soccer League season for the Okanagan Challenge on the weekend, but help is on the way in the form of two stand-out defenders. The Challenge opened its PCSL season on the coast, dropping a 5-2 decision on Saturday to Khal-

sa Sporting Club before losing 5-0 to Bellingham United on Sunday. Coach Dante Zanatta said the team struggled to defend its own zone in both games. “Going into the weekend we were missing three of our starting back four and two centre-back players,� he said. “It was a bit of a makeshift defending lineup. Inexperience and

non-familiarity playing with each other caused a lot of problems.� Two Kelowna players are expected to arrive back in town this week and should provide some stability with defenders Carson Gill and and Joel Malouf both set to arrive in Kelowna from Simon Fraser University before the Challenge play its next game.

Austin Jones and Logan Abbott had the two goals for the Challenge on the weekend and despite what appeared to be two lopsided losses, Zanatta says there are some positives to take from the opening weekend. “The reality is we didn’t defend well,� he said. “That is not indicative of the teams I have coached in the past. There

were some positives. Guys have gone through the first weekend and they know the pace of the league. They know they have to apply themselves going forward. We have guys that can score but when you miss the central part of your defense, we were exposed.� The Challenge will head back to the coast for a single game this week-

end, playing Port Coquitlam, before hosting Bellingham on May 26 in its home opener. “The guys battled through the weekend and did some good things,� said Zanatta. “We just have to be a lot more confident and defend with more purpose.�

OKANAGAN FC—WOMEN The Okanagan Foot-

Okanagan fell 3-1 to Peninsula Saturday at UBCO Okanagan as Kyra-Rae Horvath scored the lone goal for the home team. Okanagan FC hosts Fraser Valley at UBCO this Saturday.

KELOWNA HEAT U-16 pitcher Latisha Williams prepares to fire a ball toward the plate in a junior ladies fastball tournament at High Noon Park on the weekend. The Heat were 3-and-3 at the event.

U-16 girls place third in weekend tourney Kevin Parnell STAFF REPORTER

The Kelowna Heat bantam B Under-16 girls fastball team placed third in a junior ladies tournament at High Noon park in Kelowna on the weekend, earning several wins along the way including an excellent pitchers duel to start the playoffs on Sunday morning. Julia Lambert allowed just one run in seven innings of work as the Heat edged the Fleetwood Force 2-1 in an entertaining affair at High Noon on

Sunday morning. Brett Needham drove in the winning run with a single in the sixth inning to put the Heat up 2-1. Lambert allowed one run in the first and then shut the door. In the bottom of the seventh the Heat threw out the potential tying run at the plate, ending the game in dramatic fashion and sending the Heat onto the semi-final. Despite more offense from Needham, who went two-for-three at the plate, the Heat ran out of gas and lost 12-5 to the PoCo Jun-

ior Ravens in the semifinal, ending their tournament at 3-and-3 and third place on the gold side of the tournament draw. The Heat were 2-and2 in the round robin portion of the tournament. In the opener, Lambert led the way with a six strike-out performance on the mound and she also drove in two runs in a 12-4 win over RM Nemesis. Candace Hamilton also drove in two runs in the win. The Heat then dropped an 11-1 decision to SD Invaders. Lori Miki was

one-for-two at the plate and scored the Heat’s lone run. Kelowna got back onto the winning side as the Hayden Craig cracked a home run in the first inning en route to a 5-1 win over the Fleetwood Force. Craig would end the game with two hits and three RBI’s. In its final round robin game the Heat lost 11-4 to the Poco Junior Ravens. The bantam B U-16 Heat will now prepare to host its own tournament, coming up May 25 to 27 in Kelowna.

Organizers are ask-

ing you to get your family, neighbors, colleagues or friends involved and help us make the 30th Anniversary a very special weekend to remember.

SENIOR LACROSSE

The Kelowna Raiders had a lead in the third period but let it slip away as they lost 9-7 to Armstrong in Thompson Okanagan Senior Lacrosse play. The Senior Shamrocks took advantage of Kelowna’s mistakes and outworked the home team in the corners in making their comeback. Armstrong scored two shorthanded goals in the third and was backed up by a solid performance from their goaltender Chad Pieper. Undisciplined penalties by Kelowna all evening eventually caught up to the team in the third. Kelowna hosts the Shamrocks in two weeks again.

Time has passed so swiftly. It has been 11 years since that fateful day, We still miss you terribly. This is our way of letting you know that, You will always be loved and remembered.

You bid no one last farewell, No chance to say good-bye. You were gone before we knew it, Only God knows why.

Eva, Laura, Mike, Kira and Jenna, Robert, Yukiko and Maya

It broke our hearts to lose you, But you did not go alone, For part of us went with you, The day God called you home. Though your smile is gone forever, And your hand we cannot touch, We will never lose the memory, Of the one we loved so much.

MATTEOTTI, SARA MICHELLE It is with great sadness and also great peace we share with you the passing of our daughter, our sister, our niece, our cousin, our granddaughter, our beautiful friend Sara Michelle Matteotti. Sara passed away on Monday, May 7th, 2012 at the age of 29 years at the end of her long and courageous battle with Life. She now flies free. Sara was one-of-a-kind, a brilliant gem, an extraordinary soul whose effervescence, compassion, irreverent sense of humour and spirit touched many lives, young and old. Sara was passionately connected to her family, forevermore bonded to sister Chelsey who was her jewel, her passion, her love, her best bud. A fiercely protective, proudly loyal, and always true daughter and sister. A deeply gifted artist and musician, dancer and singer, wonderful and creative cook, lover of gardens and all things natural, she loved all animals, particularly our cat, Misty. She loved and missed her bird, Cola, and cat, Bojaz. Sara had an affinity and a soft spot for older folks, kids, the underdog. She is survived by her mother, Marlene Matkin, father, John (Jack) Matteotti, sister Chelsey Nicole Matteotti, grandmother, Louise Bullis, and many, many aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends. She is predeceased by her grandmother, Eileen Matteotti, grandfather, Henry Matteotti, and grandfather, Bert Baker Matkin. In lieu of flowers, etc., Sara would want you to plant a flower, make a wish, help a child, do a random act of kindness. Sara would also prefer you put your energy into: working towards world peace, eradicating world hunger, erasing racism and the subjugation of women worldwide, stopping the abuse of children and cruelty to animals… and abolishing tight-fitting clothing everywhere. The Gathering for Sara will be held on Wednesday, May 16th, 2012 at 1:00 – 4:00 pm at the Laurel Packinghouse on Ellis Street in Kelowna, B.C. All are welcome to attend.

HER JOURNEYS JUST BEGUN KIVI, IDA OLINE lda Oline Kivi has passed into the presence of her Lord and Savior on Sunday May 6th, 2012. lda’s three children; Lillian (Dennis) Samila, Alan (Catherine) Kivi, and Bonnie Perry were all present as our Mom passed peacefully at home. Mom is free of pain and suffering that she endured during her last few months when cancer took her too early from us. Ida was predeceased by her mother Monghild Delviken (l967), her brother Eldor Delviken (1990), her father Eric Delviken (1993), and sister Solveig Grande (1999). lda is survived by her three children and thirteen grandchildren, David, Brian, Dean, Shawn and Tami Samila, Tiffany (Kivi) Filek, Kristen and Cayla Kivi, Michelle and Sara Atexander, Mariah, Mackenzie and Jadyn Perry, as well as nine great grandchildren, Jake, Cassidy, Payton, Mitchel, Brooklyn and Evan Busat, Madison, Carter and Jade Kivi. Mom’s parents immigrated to Canada in 1926 from Norway. Her brother Eldor was born in Canada (1933), a trip back to Norway left the family there as the chaos of WW2 was beginning. Mom was born in Eisoug, Norway on January 6th, 1937, a year before her sister Solveig. Mom, with her family then immigrated to Canada in 1946 and lived in Trail, BC where her mom ran a boarding house and her dad worked at Cominco mine. lda was married on May 7th, 1955 to Everett Kivi, they lived in logging bush camps near Spence’s Bridge when lda had Lillian and Alan. They moved to Cache Creek in 1961 and a few years later, lda had her 3rd child, Bonnie. The family moved again and lived in Ashcroft in 1967, before finally settling in Kamloops in 1968. Mom received her Canadian Citizenship in 1971. Mom worked with Dad (in his construction business) when they first moved to Kamloops, then she worked at RIH for 25 years, first in housekeeping and then the laundry before retiring in 1999. After retirement, mom moved to Kelowna to live with her youngest daughter Bonnie (husband, Ken) Perry. Life became very busy and fulfilling with three granddaughters and gardening. Mom was a member of “Willow Park Church” in Kelowna. She moved back to Kamloops earlier this year to live with her Daughter, Lilli who cared for her with love to the end. Mom had an active part with all of us, always involved in our little and sometimes big projects. We in turn worked with mom on hers; it was always team work with mom. Mom also loved to garden and could make anything grow. She was an avid reader and adored her dogs. Her influence is evident in our homes and lives. Our loss, although pain felt, is only temporary as we know we’ll be reunited and see her smiling face, She will be missed and lovingly remembered. Thanks to all those that made mom’s life special and the family would like to especially thank Dr. J. Howie for all his support during this difficult time. Arrangements entrusted to Kamloops Funeral Home 250-554-2577 Condolences may be emailed to the family from www.kamloopsfuneralhome.com

STEVEN RAY SHEPEL - BEAUDRY It’s with much sadness that we announce the passing of Steven Shepel. Born July 7th, 1976, passed away April 30th, 2012. He was a loving father, son, brother, uncle, cousin & friend. He is an angel looking down and guiding us now and forever. Survived by his loving mother Thelma Beaudry and his daughter Shyanne Shepel of Kelowna, B.C.

MCVEY, MARGARET ANNE (NEE MOUNTFORD) Anne was born on December 3, 1948 in Penticton, BC to Gordon and Mildred Mountford. She spent her early years living at the resort that Gordon had developed at Paradise Lake, located near Elkhart Lodge on the Coquihalla Highway. In her teenage years, Anne went to live in Edmonton with her Aunt Emily and Uncle Laurie and finished her high school. She married and had two sons, Scott and James and spent time living in various communities associated with the mining industry. Anne then remarried and had her youngest son, Steven and spent time living in Yellowknife. Anne raised Steven on her own with the help of dear friends. In 2002, her life adventure took another turn when she met her third husband Paul. At that time she was working in a chiropractic office in Westbank. It was soon after that meeting that Anne, Paul and Steven moved into a common home to start their new adventure together. Around 2005, Anne found a new job with a local manufacturer of water park play equipment. It was also at this time that she and her family purchased and moved to a home in Peachland with a wonderful view of the Okanagan Lake that provided so much calm to her soul. Things changed again for Anne when she found a new job as the Business Administrator to the Kelowna Waldorf School. It was at this place of learning that she found a job that she truly loved. She had many new responsibilities and roles, but reveled in the new experiences and working with the “little ones” as well as working with their parents, the teachers and the staff at the school. Anne found that the philosophies and teachings of the school resonated with the spiritual learnings that she had found on her life journey. Anne left us suddenly and without warning in the early morning hours of May 8, 2012. She is survived by her sons Scott (Tanya), James, and Steven (Karalee), her brother Jim (Pearl), sister Mary (Gilles), her husband Paul, her step sons Aaron (Chalan) and Josh (Katie), two grandchildren, Lilly and Max and numerous nephews and nieces. Anne loved to cook and there were many fine feasts shared at the Peachland home. She also had strong artistic sense and loved to paint, decorate and sew. Anne touched the lives of so many over the years, and the world is a better place for her having been here. She was taken away from us way too soon. She will be missed by many and there will be a huge hole left in her absence. A memorial service will be held on Saturday, May 19, 2012 at 10:00 am at Springfield Funeral Home, 2020 Springfield Road, Kelowna, BC. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made to The Women’s Shelter, http://kws.shelter.net.ca. Condolences may be sent to the family by visiting www.springfieldfuneralhome.com, 250-860-7077.

CUISINE from Jude’s kitchen updated classics With Victoria Day upcoming, my thoughts turned to what Queen Victoria might have eaten in the 1800s, since it’s her birthday we’re celebrating by taking a holiday May 21. Then I thought it would be interesting to look at some old classics and what we’ve been doing to them to bring them up to date. For instance, adding carrots to cakes has been going on for centuries, because they’re a great natural sweetener and they add moistness and flavour. But, until I went to make my first carrot cake many years ago, I didn’t realize how much additional sugar and oil went into that richlyflavoured cake, and frankly, I was appalled. So, I found myself making a few little changes, substituting most of the oil with a little of the healthier olive oil and a lot of fat-free, plain yogurt, for instance. Instead of white sugar, I used less than half the amount of more-flavourful brown sugar. And, instead of white flour, I used half whole wheat and added a little oat bran, which offers both extra fibre and nutrition. Instead of dried ginger, I used finely-grated fresh for a nice perky flavour. But, following the Victoria Day holiday, then the Earth, Wind and Fire extravaganza of fine food and wine—a fund-raiser June 1 for the Nature Trust of B.C.—is the Okanagan’s second annual Spot Prawn Festival on June 2, 2-4 p.m. at the Cove Resort in West Kelowna. Admission is free, but there will be a charge of $2 each for prawn sampling tickets. For details, go to: www.wildbcspotprawns.com Spot prawns that are sustainably-caught are in season now off the coast of B.C. and available fresh locally during the short season, which began in May. They’re delectable in flavour and texture. There are lots more prawn recipes amongst the 200 or so in my book, Jude’s Kitchen, which is organized by the seasons so you can be inspired by what’s available fresh, locally, in season, in your cooking. It’s available at local bookstores and wine shops and includes many wine pairings by renowned wine writer John Schreiner.

Herb-topped, Lemony Spot Prawns There’s nothing quite like fresh herbs to ramp up the flavour of anything, and lemon and garlic are a match made in heaven, whether that’s with lamb or prawns. Pair these with the Mission Hill Family Estate Reserve 2010 Riesling, which also has a zesty citrus finish, with lots of smooth fruit flavours as well. 1 lb. (454 g) spot prawns 1 lemon, zested 1 clove garlic 2 tbsp. (30 ml) parmesan cheese 1 tbsp. (15 ml) fresh parsley 2 tsp. (10 ml) fresh mint 2 tsp. (10 ml) fresh tarragon 1 tbsp. (15 ml) olive oil

1 tbsp. (15 ml) lemon juice Shell and de-vein prawns. Mince lemon zest and garlic into a medium bowl. Finely grate parmesan and mince fresh herbs on top. Add oil and combine well, with about a teaspoon of the lemon juice, to make a paste. Add prawns to the mix and marinate for 15 minutes or so before threading them onto skewers, ready to barbecue. Barbecue over medium heat for about five minutes a side. Serve with fresh local asparagus and a nice brown rice or bulgur side dish. Serves 4.

Healthier Carrot Cake Carrot cake, despite the fact it has lots of nice, healthy carrots, (which are loaded with Vitamin A as well as being a good source of potassium), normally also has a lot of fat and sugar added to it, but I’ve reduced both considerably in this version and added some whole grains—and it’s still delicious. 3/4 c. (175 ml) white flour 3/4 c. (175 ml) whole wheat flour 1/4 c. (60 ml) oat bran 3/4 c. (175 ml) brown sugar 1 tbsp. (15 ml) baking powder 1 tbsp. (15 ml) cinnamon 1 tsp. (5 ml) baking soda 1 tsp. (5 ml) fresh, finely-grated ginger 1/2 tsp. (3 ml) salt 1/2 tsp. (3 ml) nutmeg 1/2 tsp. (3 ml) allspice 1/2 c. (125 ml) chopped pecans 3 eggs 3/4 c. (175 ml) plain, fat-free yogurt 1/4 c. (60 ml) olive oil

1 apple Pre-heat oven to 350 F. Grease and flour a 9x13-inch pan, or line with parchment paper. Combine all the dry ingredients with the chopped pecans in a large bowl and whisk together to combine thoroughly. In a smaller bowl, whisk the eggs and add the yogurt and olive oil, combining until nice and smooth. Grate the carrots, about four large ones, and core the apple and grate it. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and briefly stir until completely combined, then fold in the carrots and apple. Scrape batter into the pan and smooth out. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the cake. Let cool on a wire rack and ice with a cream cheese icing, or just dust with icing sugar. Freezes well.
