Routes Grill new culinary home for local restaurant trio BOBBI-SUE MENARD Routes Grill is Lake Country’s newest restaurant and it is a family destination featuring fresh, accessible food. The young partners include husband and wife duo Jeff Kreckau in the kitchen and Cody Kreckau on the floor, along with Michael

Coates. Between them they have a wealth of experience in some of the Okanagan Valley’s top restaurants including Cabana, Sparkling Hill, Grey Monk and the Globe restaurants at Big White and Sun Peaks. Jeff and Michael went to culinary school together in Alberta a

decade ago and kept in touch. Jeff and Cody moved to Lake Country three years ago. Owning a restaurant had been a longtime dream and last year they began to consider the former Mama Shpengis location for their first foray into ownership. The dream became

we are best friends. We were excited to be triplets for Twin Day because we are such great friends. Emanuel was in the yellow, Connor was wearing blue and Kegan was the triplet dressed in red. The three of us are in grade 3 in Miss Lemiski’s class.

What there is to know about horses BY: TEYAH HAYHURST Some of my hobbies include riding horses. I like going on trails and I like jumping horses. I don’t know a lot about horses but I do know a little bit. One of the things I know about horses is that a baby is called a colt. They are a colt for one year and then they are called a horse. Another thing I know about horses is what they eat, and horses eat lot of food! They eat grass, hay and they also like apples and oats too. I take horse lessons and I have learned so much stuff. I have learned how to trot and have learned to jump over a little bridge. A lot of my neighbours have horses and I like to go and see them and feed them grass and apples. My favourite horse is a shiny black horse and if it was mine I would name it Flika. I would make sure I had

TEYAH HAYHURST

a big field and I would have a lot more horses then just one. I would like a palomino and its name would be Freckles and it would love to run and jump and it would always have lots of energy. Scientists think that the first horse was a small dog with four toes in the front and three in the back and it lived about 60 million years ago. Did you know that the zebra is described as an African donkey and that there are still wild horses that are born in a herd? Did you also know that horses can’t get cold in any weather but wind? Horses can handle the cold in snow, rain or hail but for some reason, wind is a problem. There are many I things I know about horses, and many more things that I will learn.

Toys easily mistaken for guns The Lake Country RCMP seized what turned out to be a pellet gun after reports of someone shooting at ducks from the dock of the lakeside pub last Thursday. On May 10 at 6:30 p.m., the Lake Country RCMP received a report of a man on the north side of the dock at the Turtle Bay Pub with what appeared to be a black handgun. The report indicated that the man was shooting at ducks. The 20-year-old Lake Country man was still on the dock with friends when police arrived and the group claimed that they had been using a pellet gun to shoot across the water to the other dock, not at the ducks. The pellet gun was seized by police and will be destroyed. Police say it could have been mistaken for a real firearm, even up close. No charges have been recommended. Police say, when they receive complaints about firearms they have a duty to intervene accordingly,

Ferry fleet sails into elitist islanders storm T he B.C. government has rolled out its plan to reform BC Ferries, continuing the structural and cultural shift that started when the Crown corporation was quasi-privatized in the early years of the B.C. Liberal rule. Politically, there is a lot at stake here. Premier Christy Clark’s year-long “families first” routine boils down to two projects: Reining in rate increases at BC Hydro and BC Ferries. For weeks, Transportation Minister Blair Lekstrom has been signaling there is bad news to come. Sparring with the NDP in question period, he has bluntly and repeatedly said the days of fully staffed vessels sailing with a third (or less) of their capacity are coming to an end. Tabling legislation to give the ferry commissioner new powers over service levels as well as fares, Lekstrom

BC Views

Tom Fletcher revealed $80 million worth of sugar to help the tough medicine go down over the next four years. That’s on top of the $150 million annual subsidy. Quadra Island politician Jim Abram was first out with the predictable view of the Gulf Islands elite, dismissing this sum as paltry. It’s difficult to capture how self-centred and insulting this is, but I’ll try. Consider that the B.C. transportation ministry spent $460 million last year on highway operations. That’s for the

province’s entire vast, weather-battered road network. This year’s operating subsidy to coastal ferries is approaching $200 million, nearly half of that. And increasingly, it goes to subsidize getaways for those who choose isolation for its own sake. Basic financial information also exposes the falsity of NDP ferry critic Garry Coons’ onenote critique. It’s part of the highway system, he constantly says, comparing empty ferries with empty roads while ignoring the mandatory ferry staff and other costs. This fiscal-fantasy policy implies another huge increase in subsidy, much of it a transfer from working people to the idle rich who can afford Gulf Islands real estate. Coons can’t say how much, probably because he has no idea. A key legislative change will allow BC Ferries to use revenues from its profitable main

routes to subsidize littleused runs. This would be even more important if those revenues hadn’t been squandered. And no, I’m not talking about the “fast ferries.” The story is detailed in Head On!, a 2004 book by former B.C. deputy highways minister R.G. Harvey. He describes how the Mike Harcourt government completed the “gross error” of building a new terminal at Duke Point, near Nanaimo. This run was to take truck and other traffic from congested Horseshoe Bay to the mid-Island from Tsawwassen. An alternative route from Richmond to Gabriola Island, with bridges to Vancouver Island, had been quietly scuttled after the W.A.C. Bennett government was defeated by the NDP’s Dave Barrett in 1972. On a map, it’s clear this would have been the shortest route. Harvey says it would have

cut travel time by half, and likely replaced the congested Horseshoe Bay dock. But Barrett would have had to tell his Nanaimo ferry union supporters that they were losing half their work hours. Tsawwassen to Duke Point is 65 km, compared to 54 km from Horseshoe Bay to Departure Bay. A ferry worker’s shift includes two round trips and loading time. On the Duke Point run this meant at least eight and a half hours, “thus ensuring the crew at least one hour at double time daily and often more,” Harvey writes. “Later it became a scheduled overtime route.” Something to keep in mind as Adrian Dix and his crew of union bosses prepare to take the helm.

On May 5 and 6, we organized a Lake Country Food Bank drive.

The hummingbirds are back. Probably two pair of them, although I’m not quick enough to identify individual features. They seem to play, like otters, for the sheer joy of living. They perform aerobatics overhead that would make a stunt pilot green with envy. They soar vertically, flip over, dive at dizzying speeds, zoom past at low altitude, do barrel rolls, meet in mid air, come to an instant stop. I also notice they have different feeding habits. One regular visitor perches on our hummingbird feeder while sipping nectar. Another hovers constantly while dipping his (or her) beak into the plastic blossom. Always the same blossom, always the same perch. And I wonder which bird is headed down an evolutionary dead end.

Life and Faith

Jim Taylor Because evolution is a one-way street. It moves in only one direction— towards greater intelligence, greater adaptability to one’s environment. I can’t think of any examples of evolution moving backwards—although I must admit I sometimes wonder about the California quail that scuttle across the road right in front of my car. Generally speaking, creatures that cannot change and adapt will die out. Or, if they’re

lucky, they get trapped in an evolutionary cul de sac while the rest of the world moves on. A snap judgement might suggest that the perching hummingbird has an advantage. Obviously, hovering requires more energy than perching. If both birds sip the same number of calories, the hovering bird must use up more of those calories before returning to its nest than the perching bird. Economic calculations, therefore, favour the perching bird. On the other hand, the habit of staying still while feeding might well make the perching hummingbird more vulnerable to predators. So which hummingbird has an evolutionary advantage? Snap judgements are equally unreliable in human behaviour. Given a choice between having

power and being powerless, between strength and vulnerability, few humans would hesitate. We’d choose power. Being vulnerable, after all, makes you, well, vulnerable. So let’s compare, say, Jesus Christ and Genghis Khan. Try to set aside the usual moral and religious biases that automatically treat Jesus as the ultimate model for human behaviour. Which one has had more lasting influence? Jesus’ prime human characteristic, it seems to me, was his vulnerability. He had no army. He bore no weapons. He refused even to defend himself against accusations. And look where it got him—crucified. In that light, power would seem a preferable option. Even those who profess to follow Jesus— with a few exceptions—

rarely seem reluctant to seize power when they have the chance. But I also notice that people with power seem incapable of letting themselves be vulnerable. They cannot ask for help, they cannot accept help, because that would be a sign of weakness. It’s almost as if, by grabbing the brass ring with one hand, they disable the other hand. Along with the full range of their emotions. And perhaps their ability to reason. Power narrows down their options. Which makes them less able to adapt. Less flexible. Which puts Genghis and his kin at an evolutionary disadvantage, doesn’t it? Jim Taylor is an Okanagan Centre author. rewrite@shaw.ca

But that is small comfort to Robert Kirkman as the driver’s side door of his vehicle bears the perfect imprint of a golf ball which struck his vehicle while he was driving by the Lake Country Coffee House on April 17.

Kirkman emailed Aspen Grove about the April 25 incident, and then followed up with a phone call when the email went unanswered.

While not speaking specifically about this case, a representative of the insurance carrier for Aspen Grove said that the liability in the event of an injury would most likely go to the person who hit the ball, but the

Countries deal with substantial labour market shifts

I

f we knew everything ahead of time, we would be able to predict what kind of skills and jobs are going to be required in the future and what jobs won’t be around in the next five years. Colleges and universities could build programs for tomorrow instead of reacting to a need today. And nobody would be unemployed because we would train and educate for the in-demand jobs of tomorrow. But this isn’t a perfect world and we don’t always know what’s around the corner. Occupations can disappear overnight due to technology and new ones can emerge quickly because of consumer demand. We live in an economic world that includes just-in-time production, embraces innovation and is willing to adopt change to increase profits, thereby driving

up the demand for onthe-spot skills training and on-going continual learning for employees. This puts a lot of pressure on colleges and universities to deliver programs and courses, which, upon graduation, may be two to four years later and provides industry with a worker who can meet current job expectations. Add to that, society’s expectations of having those same colleges and universities provide a better educated

and trained workforce, yielding a competitive edge that will help attract multinational corporations to set up shop in Canada. So how do we make this all work? Unfortunately, in Canada we have an unemployment system that is supposed to bridge the earning gap between losing your job and finding another job, usually with the same skill set. So what happens to those workers when there isn’t another job to

go to? In other words, what happens when unemployment occurs due to radical shifts in technology, which can permanently devalue an entire skill category? These are the challenges that come with managing a labour market and trying to keep it as progressive as possible. In countries such as Canada, governments have struggled with providing programs to help workers transition out of current occupations into retraining and hopefully a new career. These programs come and go and with the recent budget cuts it will be interesting to see if any remain. Canada faces labour shortages in the resource sector, where these industries are expecting a shortage of 1.5 million workers, mostly in the mining, oil and gas industries.

How this country thinks it can shift workers into these jobs remains to be seen. Immigration can only supply so many workers, and not all new immigrants will qualify to meet the needs of these industries. Today there are some countries that are seriously looking at their education system, from Grade 1 to post-secondary, to find ways to help their citizens deal with substantial labour market shifts. These countries are examining education as a means to provide people with general skills sets that are a benefit to all workers regardless of the industry. If they are successful, this may help all countries in the future deal with the ups and downs of the labour market. Jane Muskens is the registrar at Okanagan College. jmuskens@okanagan.bc.ca

news â–ź REGIONAL TRANSPORTATION

Local governments work together for transportation solutions Local governments across the Central Okanagan have agreed to form a new partnership focused on sustainable transportation. Regional District of Central Okanagan board chairman Robert Hobson and the mayors of Kelowna, West Kelowna, Lake Country and Peachland, along with the Westbank First Na-

tion, have signed a memorandum of understanding with the goal of working together to identify and address long-term transportation issues. “Transportation issues are top of mind for all residents across the Central Okanagan,� said Hobson. “They are also an important part of local government offici-

al community plans and our Central Okanagan regional growth strategy, which is being updated. This new partnership brings all of our interests to the table in dealing efficiently and effectively with transportation matters, so that we can find common solutions and apply them from one end of the region to the other.�

The benefits identified in the new partnership include: • The establishment of unified regional policies and strategic transportation plans • Improved responsiveness to Central Okanagan residents and officials • Potentially reduced costs through regional efficiencies, redu-

• Creating a forum and collective voice to effectively communicate with senior governments. In addition to the regional board endorsement of the plan, all the local councils have approved and support the

new partnership. Staff from each local government will now work together to craft more formal agreements for the structure, funding and operation of the sustainable transportation partnership.

Const. Kris Clark said last week it’s conceivable they’re here, considering

Penticton’s detachment issued a warning that a batch of pills, believed to

Canadians are living longer and costs for the Old Age Security (OAS) are rising. On April 1, 2023 the Government of Canada plans to start raising the age of eligibility for OAS and the Guaranteed Income Supplement (GIS) from 65 to 67.*

What does this mean for you? 54 or older as of March 31, 2012

You may still obtain OAS/GIS at age 65

The age of eligibility for OAS/GIS will change gradually between 2023 and 2029

The B.C. Coroners Services reviewed 16 w deaths of B.C. ecstasy users in 2011 and early 2012 and found three w victims in the Lower Mainland and two more on Vancouver Island tested positive for paramethoxy-methamphetamine (PMMA), which Mounties believe is being used as a cheaper ingredient. “It’s considerably more neurotoxic,” said provincial health officer Dr. Perry Kendall. Health officials said PMMA is a rare drug and takes effect much more slowly than expected by ecstasy users, who may be used to feeling the effects within 45 minutes. Kendall said users may think the pills aren’t working or they’re weak and take a second or a third one, then overdose. “They’re thinking they have lower dose pills,” Kendall said. “In fact, they have higher dose pills that are a lot more toxic.” Kendall said the pills are made in a bathtub so there is no guarantee one pill has the same composition as another. He said the pills are typically contaminated with other drugs, including methamphetamine, ephedrine, caffeine, ketamine (an anaesthetic) and PCP—a horse tranquilizer. A medical health officers update for physicians, published in January, recommends individuals should avoid taking ecstasy, however, if a person does they should not be using a combination of alcoSEE STREET DRUG A10

Okanagan College distinguished service award bestowed on long-time employee, Catherine Williams A retired Okanagan College employee who ensured the health and safety of thousands of students for more than a decade has been named the 2012 recipient of the Okanagan College Distinguished Service Award. Catherine Williams worked at the college for 34 years until her retirement two years ago. She spent her last 11 years as the college’s safety of-

ficer. Williams will be honoured for her dedicated service at Okanagan College’s spring convocation ceremony on June 2, 10:30 a.m., at the Kelowna campus. Williams is only the third person in the college’s history to receive the Distinguished Service Award. The award is bestowed on former employees who have giv-

en outstanding service to the college and the community and who exemplify the college’s mission of transforming lives and communities. “Catherine made a tremendous contribution to the college during her 34 years here,� said OC president Jim Hamilton. “Her dedication and her passion for extending her knowledge to the greater Okanagan community is exempla-

ry. Anyone who has ever had to handle a crisis knows they are in good hands when Catherine is in charge.� In her role as safety officer, Williams built relationships that took her from the boardroom to the classroom. Students got to know Williams well, especially those in trades where she was a frequent guest speaker for the mandatory WHMIS (Workplace

Hazardous Materials Information) courses. “Working at the college was really a challenge because you’re a jack of all trades,� Williams said. “You’ve got autobody, welding, chemistry, and all those hazards, so you learn to develop good relationships with people who have expertise in certain areas.� And she could always be counted on to watch

the summer convocation ceremonies like a hawk. “I remember one year it was really hot, and one of the vice-presidents came to me afterwards saying: ‘Wasn’t that great?’ And I said: ‘I guess you didn’t see the ambulance.’ Two guests collapsed.� While at the college, Williams devoted a great deal of her personal time

to volunteering for the emergency social services, working alongside Beryl Itani during such momentous events as the Okanagan Mountain Park fire and later the West Kelowna fires. Today, she continues to serve the community as the emergency social services director of the Regional District of Central Okanagan.

Q A

What is involved with a routine dental cleaning for my dog or cat?

Puppies have a strong urge to eliminate after sleeping, playing, feeding and drinking. Take your puppy to its selected elimination area within 30 minutes of each of these activities. Although some puppies can control themselves through the entire night, most puppies need to eliminate every 3 to 4 hours during the daytime. With each passing month, you can expect your puppy to control itself a little longer between elimination times. The puppy should be taken to its elimination area, given a word or two of verbal encouragement (e.g. ‘Hurry up’) and as soon as elimination is completed, lavishly praised and patted. A few tasty food treats can also be given the ďŹ rst few times the puppy eliminates in the right spot, and then intermittently thereafter. This teaches the puppy the proper place to eliminate, and that elimination in that location is associated with rewards. If you take your puppy to the elimination site and he/she is only interested in playing and investigating the environment, take the QVQQZJOEPPSTBGUFSBCPVUNJOVUFTBOETUSJDUMZ supervise him until you can try again, approximately each half hour. Always accompany your puppy outdoors so that you can be certain that it has eliminated.

Why do you use a home stager when you take a listing and why is it a part of your Realtor service?

I know that the ďŹ rst impression of your home is extremely important and that the ďŹ rst impression of a home generally occurs when the potential buyer ďŹ rst sees the home photos on-line. When clients and I agree that I will professionally represent their home, I always invest in the home presentation by having their home staged before my professional photographer/videographer arrives. I believe that another set of objective eyes is always helpful to insure that clutter is tucked away, the best towels are on display, open drapes are hanging just right and blinds are open at the perfect angle to best illuminate your home’s features. If a home appears to be disorganized in showings and in pictures, buyers will wonder what other, less visible problems may be hidden and might cause issues over time. A professional, detailed home listing is a very important part of my service to you as a Realtor. Home staging is only one component of the professional service that I offer to clients and, as we all know, impactful ďŹ rst impressions can only be made once!

Q A

Is the shingles vaccination appropriate for you?

Shingles is a condition characterized by a painful, blistering rash that can cause scarring and lead to skin infection. Shingles can cause nerve pain that can last for months after the rash has healed. This pain can interfere with daily activities like walking and sleeping. Anyone who has had chickenpox is at risk for shingles and an estimated 95% of Canadians have had chickenpox. There is no cure for shingles but people can protect themselves with vaccination. Vaccination is recommended for people over 50 years of age. The beneďŹ t of vaccinating is that it prevents shingles from occurring, or it can reduce the duration and severity of an episode of shingles. Vaccination will not treat a current episode of shingles. The risk of shingles increases as a person ages. The vaccine is recommended for anyone over the age of 50. The vaccine is contraindicated (should not be used) in some people who are immunocompromised. The shingles vaccine, called Zostavax, is available at WinďŹ eld IDA. The vaccine requires a prescription from your physician. Please call the pharmacy with any questions concerning the vaccine.

How can I protect my child’s oral health?

Parents should provide their child’s oral hygiene care until the child is old enough to take responsibility for the daily routine of brushing and ossing (I usually tell parents this may not happen until your child can handwrite!) A proper regimen of preventive home care is important from the day your child is born.

Unplug your kids and start talking Today’s children have access to a seemingly endless supply of communication gadgets— computers, tablets, video games, smart phones and interactive toys. Despite the increasing availability of these communication tools, children’s communication skills are on the decline. With May being Speech and Hearing Month, Interior Health wants to remind everyone about the important role speech, language, and hearing play in a child’s early development. Hearing, speech and language all play crucial roles in children’s social and emotional development, as well as their ability to learn. Toddlers and preschoolers with speech or language problems often have difficulty playing with others and managing their own emotions.

They are vulnerable to mental health disorders when they get older, and are at a greater risk for school drop-out as teens. Recent statistics from the University of British Columbia’s Human Early Learning Partnership show that fewer B.C. children are reaching kindergarten with appropriate social competence and emotional maturity when compared to children 10 years ago. “The first few years of a child’s life are a critical time, long before they begin school,� said Kingsley Bower, practice consultant with Interior Health’s Speech and Language Program. “Children’s readiness for speech and language development is greatest between the ages of 12 months and four years. This is an important time to stimulate communication skills and to get help for any delays.�

When it comes to teaching language skills, face-to-face contact wins hands-down over expensive electronics and teaching tools. Babies and young children respond best to live human voices. “Children learn communication skills by listening to words and the tone of your voice, and also by watching the expressions on your face when you speak,� said Bower. “Tablets and computers are amazing these days but machines don’t care about sharing, or hitting and screaming, so they don’t teach children how to keep friends.� Parents should trust their instincts if they are concerned whether their child’s speech, language and hearing are developing well. Signs of difficulty can be subtle but may include:

• certain sounds that seem difficult for a child to hear (e.g. can hear the doorbell but not certain voices) • doesn’t notice when spoken to from behind • speech that is hard to understand or inappropriate for the child’s age level • very loud or soft speech • stuttering • a child who is distracted, withdrawn or avoids social contact • a child who gets upset when trying to communicate. If you suspect a problem, Interior Health’s registered speech-language pathologists and audiologists can help. They specialize in working with children during the critical years from birth to five years. Call your local health centre for an appointment.

RESPECT THE ENVIRONMENT

BYLAW ENFORCEMENT REMINDER

With the warmer weather upon us, more people are getting outdoors to be active and enjoy the beautiful natural environment around Lake Country.

Summer is coming… Just a reminder that Lake Country is a prime destination for visitors, and short term vacation rentals must comply with zoning bylaws. Residential rentals must be no less than one month in duration. Bylaw Enforcement will be responding to complaints with tickets issued to violators.

Please remember to pack out what you pack in. Leave our parks and trails cleaner than when you arrived.

THE FOOD BANK NEEDS A NEW HOME JOINT FEASIBILITY STUDY OPEN HOUSE MAY 24, 2012 A Joint Feasibility Study is being undertaken collaboratively by the District of Lake Country, Rotary Club of Lake Country, and the Lake Country Food Assistance Society, to consider options for a new food bank facility.

Swalwell Parking Lot Closure Reminder: The parking lot at Swalwell Park will be closed until approximately June 2012 for construction and paving of the new parking lot. Parking is available on Bottom Wood Lake Road across from the Swalwell ball diamond. We are sorry for any inconveniences this may cause. If you have any questions please call Steve Schaffrick, Director of Community and Customer Services at 250 765 5650 or email at sschaffrick@lakecountry.bc.ca.

Presently the Lake Country Food Assistance Society operates the food bank program out of a temporary location that is part of the old Winfield School – which also houses the Boys and Girls Club activities. The feasibility of a permanent home for the food bank will consider inclusion of the following features: x adequate parking space for clients and staff, and vehicle access to warehouse x accessible client reception waiting area and interview room x fresh produce counter with client access x accessible washrooms x food product sorting area and food hamper assembly area x staff kitchen and walk-in cold storage space x administration office The Rotary Club of Lake Country is spearheading the drive to raise funds to construct the facility. Members of the club have researched available locations in the community over the last three years. They then partnered with the District of Lake Country to engage Architect Bruce Carscadden to develop preliminary options based on the criteria provided and feedback from stakeholders. A site adjacent to the Arena and Seniors’ Centre has been proposed. A neighborhood information session to gather input on the Joint Feasibility Study preliminary concepts will be held on Thursday, May 24, 2012 from 5:30 pm until 6:30 pm in the Carr’s Landing Room at the District office at 10150 Bottom Wood Lake Road. Interested residents and business owners are encouraged to attend.
