On the move Alistair Waters ASSISTANT EDITOR

It’s likely the biggest move Kelowna has ever seen. On Sunday morning, up to 25 per cent of all patients at Kelowna General Hospital will move, or be moved, from various parts of the facility into the new Centennial Tower. But the patient move is just the completion of a manoeuvre that has taken more than a year to plan and nearly a week to carry out, involving the opening of two large new buildings at the KGH—the six-storey Centennial Tower and the Dr. Walter Anderson Building, new home of the hospital’s clinical support services and laboratories—that has touched, both directly and indirectly, every department at the hospital. But, if all goes according to the plan, the hospital won’t skip a beat. And for the men and women who have worked so hard on every last minute detail, that will be success. See story A3.

Complicated logistics for KGH patient transfer from A1 “It’s very, very orchestrated,” said Tracy McDonald, the IHA’s health services administrator at KGH. “Our team has done so much planning. We are as ready as we can be.” For McDonald, along with the rest of the administrators and 2,500 staff at KGH, preparing for the move has been so much more than simply the logistics of wheeling patients from one area to another. While the move is ultimately a patient-focused exercise, the amount of equipment, furnishings and ancillary services required for such a move is immense. Hospitals are equipment-heavy places that can’t be shut down for a few days to simplify such a huge undertaking. New and relocated equipment and furnishings must be in place before patients move from one area to another. And because entire departments are relocating, staff have had to be retrained for the new, larger work spaces they will move into. So staff training was a critical part of the planning, said Erika Harmat-Caspers, Interior Health’s project manager for the move and the woman at the centre of the planning process for the last 14 months. Operating out of a command centre on the ground floor of the new

DOUG FARROW/CONTRIBUTOR

Centennial Tower—a room that will be the nerve centre of the operation come Sunday morning—Harmat-Caspers and her team will direct the flow of patients, including residents of the hospital’s psychiatric unit, the ambulatory care unit, emergency department, renal and eye departments as well as others. Literally, as the doors to a department’s old quarters close behind the last person out, the doors to that department’s new space, in either the Centennial Tower or the Anderson clinical support building, will open. In the case of the emergency department, one of the biggest and busiest at the hospital, the official change over will occur starting at 7 a.m. with patients going to the existing emergency department before that time on Sunday morning while patients arriving after that

time will be admitted at the new department. Any patients still in emergency by noon will be transferred to the new location. The physical move actually started on Tuesday with non-medical areas like the hospital gift shop, along with the KGH Foundation and other administrative offices, moved first. Depending on the size of the department, multiple phases were planned during this week to accommodate the moving process, leading up to Sunday’s culmination. With a move as large and as complicated as one involving several departments, support services and ancillary areas of a hospital, there are a myriad of issues to cover off—everything from the very large to the minute has to be taken into account, both in the planning and the execution.

ERIKA Harmat-Caspers (left photo) is the project manager for the Kelowna General Hospital patient and equipment move into the new Centennial Tower; Brayden Johnston (top photo) with Health Care Relocations; Nancy Wells, head of the KGH Foundation (lower photo), discusses the move with a Health Care Relocations staff member. . From critical issues, such as infection control—there will be cleaning crews to wipe down everything as it leaves the old part of the hospital and enters the new tower—to equipment transfers, from the unpacking of new equipment and furnishings and recalibration and the physical movement of patients, IH planners and the company it has hired to do the physical moving, Health

Care Relocations based out of Peterborough, Ont. feel they have it all covered. Every patient that moves—there could as many as 100 but the hospital thinks it will likely be around 70 depending on how busy the hospital is Sunday morning—will have a nurse accompany them on the move down the prescribed routes

through the corridors. Borrowing from an idea it got from observing a similar move at Victoria’s Royal Jubilee Hospital, IH will have UBCO student nurses awaiting each patient as they arrive in their new rooms. The student nurses will stay with the patients making sure they are comfortable, and inform patients’ families that they

have moved and where they are now located. Harmat-Caspers said being able to observe both Victoria’s move and a similar but smaller scale one at the Vernon Jubilee Hospital’s new patient care tower earlier this year was helpful for planning KGH’s move.

Gellatly Road about to receive third phase of upgrade decision to get rid of the existing trees; however, the Gellatly Bay Trails and Park Society supported the district’s decision. Coun. Rick de Jong said that the parallel parking spaces that will be created through the upgrades may provide further problems. “I’m concerned about encouraging bicycles to run beside parallel parking,” said de Jong. “I also have a concern about boats and trailers parking there and taking up multiple spots.” According to Gary O’Rourke, director of engineering, it could cost an additional $500,000 to de-

velop angle parking stalls where parallel parking is currently planned. According to Coun. Duane Ophus, the upgrades are an example of the district doing the best it can with limited options. “There is no perfect solution for this situation. We’ve been talking about it for quite some time and I think staff has done the very best that they could to come up with every reasonable compromise to move this project forward,” said Ophus. “What we’ve done so far (through the first two phases) has been phenomenally (received) by the vast majority of citizens in

Applying past lessons to KGH move Logistics from A3 She said because there are always tweaks that can be made to make such a huge undertaking easier, lessons were learned. And that is something Brayden Johnston, the project manger for Health Care Relocations, agrees with. His company, the leading expert on hospital moves across NorthAmerica, has moved facilities both big and small. Johnston says there is always something to be learned, something to use in the next move. He described the KGH move as a mediumsized relocation, but not one without its challenges. “There is a lot of logistical work getting from A to B in this hospital,” he said, while recognizing the atmosphere here is far more relaxed compared to other facilities. He cited the example of the company’s move for the U.S. Army at the huge Walter Reed Memorial Hospital in Washington D.C. “It’s different dealing with the U.S. Army,” he said. In addition to the physical movement of equipment—much of which is highly specialized and needs recalibration once it has been relocated—Health Care Relocations is also handling the co-ordination of the arrival of new equipment and furnishings at KGH. “This is much more

Despite concerns about parking, cyclist safety and the removal of katsura trees, West Kelowna will go ahead with the third phase of Gellatly Road upgrades this July. The project will extend approximately 700 metres from Angus Drive northward on Gellatly Road to just past the CNR Wharf. Improvements will also be made to about 350 metres of the west half of Boucherie Road. Upgrades will include cycling lanes, parallel parking on the east side of the road, a new retaining wall between the

road and existing waterfront walkway, pedestrian outlooks, street furniture, street lights and improvements to the existing pathway. The project will also see crews remove and replace existing katsura trees along the waterfront trail. According to Rob Mueller, manager of engineering, the district’s arborist inspected the katsura trees and determined they were in poor to moderate health and in a constant state of stress, mostly caused by poor soil conditions and an inadequate irrigation system.

than a domestic move,” said Johnston with a smile when asked to compare what his company is doing to a home or business move. He said his company has been working with IH on the move plan for the last six months. They will have about 16 full-time and locally-hired employees at KGH present for the move, as well as many volunteers. The company also handled the Vernon move, and learned a few things from that relocation which can be applied to the KGH transfer. Johnston said while the move in Vernon went smoothly, the company felt the communication system could have been better. As a result, the radios used for the Kelowna move will be improved. “It’s little things like that we learn every time.” While every department will pack up their own areas in moving boxes and large crates provided by Health Care Relocations and the company will transport them from one area of KGH to another, the other side of

the move—unpacking— is equally important. Harmat-Caspers said each department has 24 hours to unpack in order to not only be ready for patients on Sunday but also so packing boxes and crates can be reused to keep the flow going during the week. But in the end, the main focus of the move is the patients. The move will start at 7 a.m. Sunday, during the hospital’s regular turnover time— also the traditionally slowest day of the week at KGH— and hospital officials expect to have all the patients moved by 1 p.m. at the latest. Using volunteer “way finders” stationed along the several routes to be used to make sure no one takes a wrong turn, the move will be made with clockwork timing, patients being sent in small groups intermittently. And, despite the size of the undertaking, visitors to the hospital will likely not notice much of a difference. Hospitals are places were people and equip-

ment usually move through the halls, so nothing should appear out of place. But KGH is asking the public to only go to the hospital if it is an emergency on Sunday morning to help make the patient move go faster and smoother. As for what will signal success, both McDonald and Harmat-Caspers agree that a smooth transition where patients are moved into their new surroundings as quickly and as effortlessly as possible in a safe and efficient manner will be the sign. But after planning the move into the new tower and the new clinical support building for the last 14 months and carrying it out, the work for KGH planners will not stop there. Several of the relocated departments were in the oldest part of the hospital, the Pandosy Building which is scheduled to be demolished to make room for the new Interior Heart and Surgical Centre. Planning for that building, and the move in 2016 will be next. But, said HarmatCaspers with a smile, IH has another team working on that. awaters@kelownacapnews.com

Project Literacy tutors continue to change the lives of their pupils Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

Project Literacy is celebrating a major milestone. The successful nonprofit has hit the quarterlife mark, ready to commemorate 25 years of resolving literacy issues. Founded by concerned community members who felt adults needed a place to improve on reading, writing and math skills, it’s grown from a tiny operation in the Laurel Packinghouse to one of the community’s staple social supports. “In general, we have two major groups. There are those who are upgrading in order to qualify for more education, and those who want to improve employment opportunities. And then there’s the third group who are working on English as another language,” Blair Lischeron, Project Literacy executive director, said in interview from his

Bernard Avenue offices. Altogether, Lischeron’s figures show more than 100 tutor-andstudent pairings meet each month for lessons. Diana and Rod Warnock were among the founding directors— Diana acting as a tutor and director—and both say those numbers show it’s light years from where it all began. Operating on a shoestring budget, cobbled together from small grants and donations, the clients were often teetered on the brink of horrific lives, struggling to survive without showing the world they could not read or write. “One lady was from a Doukhobor family. I was in my forties at the time and she was already 60-plus. Her parents had been jailed in the Kootenays and the kids were farmed out to foster homes within the community, so she never real-

ly got to go to school at all. When they tried to do something about that, she was 11 and they put her back in Grade 1. It was such a traumatic thing for her,” said Diana Warnock. “She was probably the one who I really, really got attached to. She was so smart and learned so quickly and was just so excited to be able to read to her grandchildren. It just transformed her life.” The move to create a community-based literacy organization was spearheaded by Maxine Veach, who was running a literacy service out of the Okanagan College. “Particularly young men, by the time they reached 30, 35 years old, they would realize they couldn’t move forward, couldn’t apply for a higher job or be moved on unless they could do something about their reading,” said Warnock. “They were coming in so desperate and we were lit-

Tutors at Project Literacy are all volunteers who willingly to dedicate an average of four to five hours per week to ensuring the students get the best education available. “It’s just amazing.

According to the Canadian Council on Learning, 48 per cent of the adult population in Canada is considered to have below-standard literacy skills—and the figure is expected to grow.

THE ZIPZONE NAKED fundraiser originated last year at the Peachland-area zipline park as a way to raise money for breast cancer research. It was started by members of the SS Rodeo roller derby team. derby team will once again have members taking part this year. Bennett said he doesn’t think it will be too hard to convince 100 women to zipline naked for a good cause. “I’ve spoken to a number of different ladies. Some go, ‘No, I would never do that.’ But there’s a whole group of women who say, ‘This sounds like a really fun way to raise money,’” said Bennett. Women who sign up are not required to bare all if they get stage fright before taking flight. “Last year some of the girls came out wearing nothing but a smile, but some of the other girls wore bikini bottoms and a couple of the girls had pasties. “Nudity is not the issue…the important thing

is that we raise money for charity.” All ziplining guides working the event will be female and participants are warned that employees will need to have physical contact with them in order to ensure harnesses and other safety equipment are being worn properly. Last year, the guides

were so encouraged by the cause that they lost some of their clothing as well. “To support the girls, but also have a professional demeanor, they simply removed their t-shirts and zipped just wearing brassieres—I was very proud of my girls for doing that.” Bennett said he wouldn’t be opposed to hosting a similar event for men if there was interest. “We haven’t been approached, but certainly that would be something that we’d be interested in doing. I don’t know if I could get 100 guys to zip naked.” The ZipZone Naked 100 will be closed to the general public during the event. Women interested in participating can call 1-855-ZIPZONE (9479663) or visit zipzone.ca.

Wade Paterson Wanted: One hundred women who will voluntarily shed their clothes and zipline naked, 380 feet above the ground. Reward: The pride that comes with assisting the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation in its mission to create a future without the fear of breast cancer. The ZipZone Naked 100 will take place at ZipZone Adventure Park near Peachland June 21. The event is open to women 18 and older and try to raise $20,000 for breast cancer research. Kevin Bennett, president of ZipZone Adventure Park, said that the naked ziplining concept originated last year after he was contacted by members of the SS Rodeo roller derby team. “They wanted to do a fun charity event. They asked if we would do a naked ziplining event with them. We worked out the details, they came out, we closed the park, they zipped and they had a great time,” said Bennett. Eight members of the roller derby team managed to raise $1,500 for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. This year, those involved in organizing the fundraiser decided to up the ante by opening up 100 spots women who want to participate. “The only rule is they come, have fun and raise a minimum of $100.” The SS Rodeo roller

NEWS â–ź ECONOMIC PRESSURES

Survey reveals apple growers need help from government Judie Steeves STAFF REPORTER

Results of a March survey of members of the B.C. Fruit Growers’ Association done by Ipsos Reid showed orchardists would participate in a program to help them with the costs of replanting to more-marketable varieties of apples. In fact, more than four in 10 agreed they would increase their overall amount of replanting if there was a replant program available again, similar to the previous program. This was particularly true of apple growers. Glen Lucas, BCFGA general manager, said, “We have been asking the province for such a program to get growers the

resources to renew and become economically sustainable. This survey shows the impact that a replant/renewal program would have on growers’ plans to renew.� A response to that desire was unveiled on Wednesday by B.C.’s Agriculture Minister Don McCrae, as he visited Kelowna to announce a $2 million orchard replanting initiative. The survey also highlighted the production declines and aging growers that are a feature of the industry. The average age of growers is 55 years, with the largest group in the 45 to 59-year-old age bracket—nearly half of all growers. Both specialization in

particular tree fruits and consolidation of acreages is evident, but there’s been a decline in the amount of production of every tree fruit, including cherries, since a similar survey done in 2005. About half of the members surveyed grow only apples, similar to the last survey. Gala apples are the most popular variety grown, at an average production of nearly 82,000 pounds, followed by Ambrosia at nearly 35,000, then Spartans at 24,500; but at least half also grow Ambrosia and Spartan, but in smaller quantities. There are still 17,000 pounds of Reds being produced. Ambrosia and Gala are the most popular var-

%LNHWR:RUN:HHN 0D\WR-XQH

ieties if growers were to replant apples. Only four per cent of respondents indicated they have no intention of decreasing production of any apple varieties and 82 per cent didn’t know what varieties might decrease in their operation in the coming five years. In terms of growers’ intentions, more growers say they intend to stay in the industry for at least the next decade than did in 2005, and fewer are uncertain about their future plans. BCFGA president Kirpal Boparai found that surprising: “We are in the

fourth year of losses in the apple sector, yet there are nine per cent more growers thinking of expanding rather than contracting their apple acreage within the next five years, with 15 per cent likely to increase their acreage of apples and six per cent likely to decrease it. “There is an indication of the economic pressures on the industry through the continuing consolidation within our industry, as the number of large farms in the survey increased.� The survey was conducted this year between March 12 and 20 this year.

A review of Canadian apple trends completed last year for the federal government, indicates a decrease in acreage and production across the country although apple use is increasing slightly. Canada’s slice of the global production pie is tiny at .4 million metric tonnes in a total of 71.3 million metric tonnes of 2009 world production. Even the U.S. share is small, at 4.5 million tonnes, while that of China is 31.7 million metric tonnes, an exponential increase since 1990. That survey concludes that challenges include

consolidation at the retail level; more stringent buyer requirements as far as food safety is concerned; high production costs in Canada; competition from more-exotic fruits and processed snacks; increasing production costs and declining apple consumption. On the other hand, the survey notes that opportunities include increasing orchard productivity; improving consistency of quality; capitalizing on the buy-local trend; brand and relationship-building; new direct sales opportunities and new markets. jsteeves@kelownacapnews.com

STAFF FROM Coldwell Banker real estate firm in Kelowna go for a ride Thursday on a big bike in support of the Heart and Stroke foundation area alone, it seems that their fundraising method is a success. The big red bike started rolling through Kelowna’s downtown streets on Wednesday and will continue to do so until Saturday. On Monday it heads to West Kelowna to complete the tour of 10 Okanagan and Kootenay communities. The bike is being ridden by various groups and organizations that have supplied riders to fill the 29 vacant seats.

“You need 15 people just to move it—it’s a big bike,� said Joanne King, Okanagan/Kootenay area manager for the Heart and Stroke Foundation. “Everybody pedals and one person steers.� With 84 event days, the Big Bike visits 50 communities throughout all of B.C. King said that riders are trying to raise $1.4 million in 2012 for lifesaving research, health promotion and advocacy. The massive pedal-

powered machine has drawn positive remarks from passersby, said King. “Everybody has got a smile on their face. Either that, or they’re looking like: What is that? That’s also what the event’s for—it’s about raising money, but it’s about raising awareness too.� King said that ride times are filled up for this year, but it’s never too early to sign up for the 2013 Big Bike event.

Fight back to protect the wild Judie Steeves

T

rashed cars, crashed campers, tattered livingroom furniture, lumpy mattresses, litter and empty cans aren’t a good mix with shy fritillaria, arnica and cornus Canadensis on the forest floor. Once squashed into the ground, they’re not likely to recover and that forest floor becomes barren instead of lush. Muddy tire tracks and beer cans don’t belong among the tadpoles and fish fry at the reedy edge of a fishing lake or wetland. If those reeds are uprooted, shelter and habitat for aquatic creatures is gone, so they are too. Smoldering campfires left alone to the whim of the wind can rapidly become raging forest fires, as can fires built larger than the half-metre by half-metre that’s permitted. Not only forests succumb to those, but also people’s homes built nearby. It takes more than 100 years to grow a mature pine or fir, yet that same majestic conifer can be reduced to sticks and sawdust in just a few minutes if a vandal has a mind to wield an axe or a chain-

saw instead of picking up dead branches from the ground or bringing in his own wood. And, all of that is illegal activity on our Crown-owned land, as well as being destructive and mindless. If you have junk, take it to the landfill. If you must careen through wetlands and lakes, build your own on your own land—not connected to any natural water sources. If you want a campfire, build a small one and make sure it’s out before you leave it—cool enough that you can put your bare hands on the ashes—and then dismantle the fire so it’s left as you found it. If it’s at a recreation site with a fire ring, just make sure the fire is completely out. In fact, leaving wilderness areas the same way you found them is the cardinal rule of outdoors people, so both you and those who follow you may experience the same

If the outdoors is not really what you want, then leave it alone and go and party in someone’s basement or rent a hall. That was obviously never considered by the vandals who invaded Spring Lake west of Peachland over the long weekend, leaving behind what literally looked like an untended landfill site rather than the pristine fishing lake it used to be. Outdoors lovers and his community are lucky to have someone with the courage of James Springer to stand up and face this bunch; to go in and tell them to clean it up; to film the mess and post it to YouTube; and to notify the authorities. Then, he even went back in and took out a truckload of the junk they left behind. Unfortunately, it will take more than just a single James Springer to clean up after all the hoo-

ligans who ravage wild areas around the Okanagan and who seem to think it’s perfectly all right for them to dump their unwanted stuff in the bush, and ride their toys through fish and wildlife habitat, leaving a trail of destruction behind. All of us will have to be more diligent about taking down licence plate numbers, descriptions, times, dates and places we see anything out of the ordinary, and report it as soon as possible to the authorities at: 1-877-95227277, the toll-free RAPP number. It can be anonymous if you prefer. We have to be the eyes and ears of the enforcers, whenever and wherever we are out in the bush. We must stem the tide of those bent on destroying what we hold dear.

n the battle between West Kelowna and Dickie Dee, whose side are you on? Should ice cream trucks be allowed to troll for kiddies by blaring the tinny tunes they’ve done for generations, or is the district right in introducing a bylaw that would put noise purveyors on mute? It’s been a long time since the Pied Pipers of ice-cream triggered my reflex to grab all the change in sight and bolt out the door, but even a vague memory of the instinct is pleasantly cued when they roll down my street. So, I’m obviously on the side of

Dickie Dee. Clearly I wasn’t involved in the consultation process on the West Kelowna Mobile Vending Policy that snuffs out any form of Kathy music or voice ampliMichaels fying devices on food wagons and ice cream trucks. But if I had been, I’d point out no number of complaints called in to the district against the sounds of childhood bliss should be given credence. Since the dawn of time there have been curmudgeons who kick in their two cents when they’re not needed, and there’s only one cure for that pro-

KATHARTIC

blem—a blank stare. Bylaws catering to potential intolerance are a bit over-reactionary. I’d also dismiss the idea of precedence. It doesn’t matter that many other cities have no-fun policies banning music playing from trucks, as has been pointed out in the days since the West Kelowna bylaw was introduced. Paraphrasing the words of some family member: If other cities told you to write a policy to jump off a bridge, would you? That said, if there’s a real desire to muffle jaunty jingles then perhaps there could just be some limitations. When New York’s mayor tried to kill the sounds of ice cream sales—to a huge public uproar—he won one battle before he lost the war.

New York City’s ice cream trucks were green-lighted to play sprightly songs while rolling through neighbourhoods, but the trade off is they have to fall silent as soon as the truck stops moving. That kind of sensible policy could curtail potential annoyance while still leaving the growing city some joie de vivre. West Kelowna is a maturing city that doesn’t even have a defining slogan yet. If they pass the bylaw at the June 12 meeting, though, I’d have a suggestion: “Shh, you’re in West Kelowna.” That’s filled with fun.

LETTERS

People need to take government back

To the editor: Prime Minster Stephen Harper’s sole focus on the economy and international trade has disrupted our life as Canadians. His tyrannical rule gives us the impression that we can only hold tight and hope that something is left over in the end. Our natural resources are being leased out for a pittance, while the services most needed by the needy are drained of effectiveness. Our closest approach to social housing has been the building

of more prisons. If money truly is power, we must look at who holds the purse strings. Our environment, health care, social services and education rely in the taxman, whose view is that private business can handle them more efficiently. Under our current leadership, we are fed servings of propaganda saying that the tar sands are Canada’s great black hope. In step with this mentality, funds have been

cut to the fisheries department, environmental protection has been cast as a villain of the economy, and non-profit organizations have been painted as undemocratic. We deserve better. Can solidarity save this incredible country from foreign interests looking for their next conquest? We must reconstruct the tried and true, and reframe our preconception of what true leadership means. We can take control of fate, and create a perfect candidate instead of waiting

to see who steps up next. We can’t expect accountability from someone who seeks power, but we can from someone we give it to. We can change the image of democracy, and reestablish its core nature of participation and responsibility. Our dysfunctional culture has many solutions; I’ve read about many and found no reason why they can’t be accomplished in any community. We require a lot more peoplepower and philanthropy, redistributing our wealth

from the individual toward the greater good; our future. This bridge across the income gap is a solution to the root of many communities’ problem—poverty. We can fix this. The answers to our problems lay behind asking different questions, reframing the problem and morphing the slide into a ladder.

Statistics for library use a complex story

To the editor: Re: Library Use Seeing a Decline, May 18 Capital News. Ah, the joys of statistics. The article citing declines in use at ORL brantches in the Central Okanagan was based on 2011 figures recently released in our Executive Summary, specifically on a comparison between circula-

tion in 2010 and 2011. “Circulation� is the movement of ORL materials—when someone puts a book on hold, or goes to pick one up in a branch, or downloads an eBook from the website. However, the way that our database counts circulation changed between 2010 and 2011, starting to code online rene-

wals to “headquarters� rather than one’s individual branch. When you look at the statistics, our headquarters had a 259 per cent increase in circulation with over 100,000 renewals attributed to it. It’s true that some branches are more or less busy, but not accurate to imply that use of libraries is waning based on these figures.

Additionally, circulation is one of many measures indicating how busy the library is. People also visit the library to use the computer stations or take in a storytime or read a magazine, so looking at these figures, such as program attendance (which in 2011 was the highest it has ever been in ORL history), web hits (up 8.9 per

cent), downloads of digital materials (up 151 per cent) gives a more complete picture of the ways people use the ORL.

Cedar problems/fixes need to be made public action, which results in an elevated coliform count in the water that renders the beach unsuitable as a swimming area. The plan also states that this condition could be improved by extending the creek outlet further into the lake. The plan failed to mention that in 1973, Fascieux Creek was named Garbage Dump Creek. It drains wetlands along KLO Road between Munson and Watt roads, including lands occupied by the old Crown Zellerbach mill end dump, the Kelowna Sewage treatment plant, Okanagan College, KSS and KLO schools, a number of non-organic agricultural operations and a number of shopping centre and other parking lots. The drainage basin also has numerous sewer collector lines. Contam-

inants may be entering the creek from all of these sources. Second, city sewer pipes are routed through Cedar Avenue beach park to discharge wastewater into the lake. This discharge is permitted by the environment ministry and under its permit the city is required to test the receiving lake water quality to protect public health and the environment. The plan fails to mention any correlation between the volume of summer sewer discharges and high coliform counts at Cedar Avenue beach. Kelowna has almost three million tourist days of demand placed upon the sewage system during the hot summer months, when coliform counts increase. Studies on Vancouver’s beaches showed

To the editor: / Mayor Walter Gray’s water quality sampling program at Cedar Avenue beach will be used to justify converting the beach from a swimming use area to a wildlife use area. He wants to sell the land for a hotel development. He does not want a swimming beach located here and he does not want the test results made public. City staff already know about the causes and fixes for contamination issues at Cedar Avenue beach. First, the city’s 2004 Cedar Avenue Land Use Plan (the plan) states the upstream water from nearby Fascieux Creek has poor water quality due to upstream waterfowl habitat influences and that the shoreline configuration to the south of the beach has created a shallow bay with limited wave

high summer coliform counts were found in areas shared by waterfowl and people. Removing geese from Vancouver beaches resulted in higher—not lower—coliform counts.

to step away from his pet development project at Cedar Avenue and begin to focus on the broader issues of creating more— not less—public beaches and of stopping contaminants from entering the lake from recreational boat toilets, the city sewer system and sources along Garbage Dump Creek. Above all else, Mayor Gray needs to disclose his impact assessment and mitigation plans for Cedar Avenue so that problems can be transparently fixed. Richard L. Drinnan, Kelowna

An orderly snowmelt needs cooler weather Judie Steeves STAFF REPORTER

Cooler weather, despite the rain, has helped to slow the snowmelt and so far there’s been very little flooding in the Kelowna area, reports Jason Brolund, Central Okanagan emergency program co-ordinator. Rain earlier in the week varied throughout the area, so overall it hasn’t created much of a spike in the levels of local creeks, he said, and it was a much shorter period of rainfall than last month’s lengthy storm. However, he says a high level snowpack in the Okanagan’s watershed has only just begun to melt and Mission Creek is already at a fairly high level. “It’s really helped keep things under control, all the work we did last year along with creek at the mouth,” he said.

Sustained rainfall or a period of warmer temperatures could change the situation, but so far the snow melt has been orderly, commented Brolund. “We’re watching the lake level because we expect it will be high again this year,” said Brolund. “The province is doing its best to manage it, but I expect it will rise above full pool again this year.” Some preliminary planning has been done in the event it rises that high, he said. A gradual snow melt and showers instead of storms really help to prevent flooding, he noted. Temperatures in the coming few days are expected to rise, with warm, sunny days; temperatures up to 23 C, and most overnight temperatures above 4 C. jsteeves@kelownacapnews.com

Cancer group recipient of $21 million donation Alistair Waters STAFF REPORTER

The biggest donation ever to a single organization in B.C may have occurred in Vancouver Thursday, but it’s good news for Kelowna, says the head of the radiation department at the B.C. Cancer Agency’s Sindi Ahluwalia Centre for the Southern Interior Dr. Ross Halperin said the $21 million donation to the B.C. Cancer Foundation will help fund important cancer research here as well as at other cancer centres across the province. Halperin, who watched a live video feed of the donation presentation from Vancouver at the Kelowna cancer centre Thursday morning, said the money from the Jambor-McCarthy legacy will help get new projects started and further existing projects and, just as important, help attract other funds for cancer research. “It’s pretty exciting,” he said. While it is to early to

pinpoint exact projects here that will benefit from the huge donation, Halperin called it an “accelerator” for future research. The donation was made by Burnaby businessman William McCarthy, the grandson of John Jambor, through his management of the gift of an office building Jambor bequeather to the Cancer Foundation in 1991. When Jambor died in 1991 at age 89, McCarthy was charged with stewarding the equity in the building to one day benefit cancer research and education in the province. McCarthy brought the investment’s value up to $21 million before handing it over in cash the foundation on Thursday. It is the largest charitable bequest to a single organization ever in B.C. McCarthy said his grandfather, who came to this country from the former Austrian/Hugarian Empire(now Slovakia) in 1928 with just $14.04 in his pocket, loved Canada, particularly B.C., and lived by the motto, “work hard, live well and give

But instead he began a prosperous real estate career, one that his grandson joined him in later on. McCarthy said he hoped the donation would help spur others to follow suit. He said his grandmother, Jambor’s wife Joan, died of cancer in 1970 and in the early 1980s, Jambor was treated for cancer as well. The massive donation will be split three ways, with $15 million going to a permanent endowment for cancer research and education, $5 million going to create the new William P.J. McCarthy chair

of cancer research at the B.C. Cancer Agency and $1.4 million going to support community cancer care in B.C. Halperin said money from donations such as the Jambor-McCarthy legacy has already helped pay for cancer research here that has lead to changes in standards of care for cancer patients and he said the Kelowna centre has also benefited from a very generous community here. The Kelowna centre is named after the late former Kelonwa-Mission Liberal MLA Sindi Hawkins, who died of leukemia in 2010 after a sixyear battle with the disease. Hawkins helped raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for Cancer research during her years fighting leukemia.

Conservatives try to rally support Alistair Waters STAFF REPORTER

Based on the numbers, the B.C. Conservatives appear to be making progress in the Central Okanagan. About 80 people, mainly seniors, turned out for a town hall meeting Wednesday night with party leader John Cummins in Kelowna. That was many more than the “few guys” Cummins said showed up when he held a similar meeting here last year. And, according to the party’s regional director for the Okanagan, Jim Sutherland, the turnout this week is an example of the growing popularity of the party here. “The number of memberships has grown a lot,” Sutherland said prior to Cummins taking to the microphone. He said going into the meeting, the Kelowna-Lake Country Conservative constituency association had 192 signed up members, just eight short of the number it needs to hold a nomination meeting to select a candidate for the next provincial election. He said, given the line-up outside the meeting by people wanting to take out memberships, he expected that by the end of the evening there would be well over the 200 needed.

Graeme James, the former Kelowna city councillor who has announced he will seek the B.C. Conservatives nomination in Kelowna-Lake Country, said he has been selling a lot of memberships as he tries to shore up support for his nomination run. Meanwhile, in Kelowna-Mission it’s a different story. Local businessman Mike McLoughlin, who announced earlier this week he will seek the party’s nomination in that riding, said it’s Conservative constituency association is nowhere near the required 200 number. But he said he plans to be out selling memberships as he tries to drum up support for his campaign. Cummins, who during his remarks called the governing Liberals a “discredited bunch,” said he believes there is no way that Premier Christy Clark’s party can win the next election so accusations of votesplitting on the right are unfounded. As he said earlier in the day in an interview with the Capital News, he believes that when the next provincial election rolls around next May, it will be between the Conservatives and the NDP. He blasted the Liberals for their spending, lack of support for small business, “lack of vision” for the province and for, in his words, sell-

ing off the assets of the province through run-of-river private hydroelectic projects. His message, resonated with many in the audience, some of whom said they had already made up their minds to vote B.C. Conservative in the next election. “I’m getting more impressed with him all the time,” said Fred Price, who attended the meeting with his wife Stella. She too said she was impressed with Cummins and said she will vote B.C. Conservative next May. Irv Taylor, who called himself a “free-enterprise person,” said he liked what he heard from Cummins at the meeting and was even considering “throwing his resources” behind it. Sean Upshaw, who ran in the last federal election as an “independent” Conservative after failing to win the Conservative Party nomination in Okanagan-Coquihalla, attended the meeting and said he too liked what he heard. He said the emergence of B.C. Conservatives in the next provincial election will give voters the choice they thought they had when they elected three Liberal MLAs here: Norm Letnick (Kelowna-Lake Country), Steve Thomson (Kelowna-Mission) and Ben Stewart (Westside-Kelowna).

rigation. The Butterfly and Ornamental Grass gardens and trees will always need a small amount of irrigation during hot, dry spells. They are on an in-line drip irrigation system. The growth, vibrant bloom, and general health of the plants show what can be achieved with good soil and appropriate plant selection. The garden beds are all covered with a one to two inch layer of mulch which provides moisture retention and feeds the plants. The original mulch was Ogogrow. Much of this has broken down to become soil so the garden was re-mulched this spring with Glengrow. It has much less nitrogen so the plants will grow more slowly. Garden brochures, complete with a listing of plants found in each garden, are available beside the main garden sign. Plant labels and brochures help gardeners to identify plants they might want to grow. Check the website gallery page for photos and the story of building the garden and copy of the garden brochure. Some plants in bloom this week are Salvia, Nepeta, yarrow, candytuft, thrift, coral bells, daylily, and some ground cover sedums. I look forward to meeting you in the garden on Monday evening.

ated in 2010 by the Okanagan Xeriscape Association with financial support from the federal department of environment; the City of Kelowna; and the Okanagan Basin Water Board. As well was the assistance of the local landscaping and horticulture industries and many volunteers. It is maintained by members of the Okanagan Xeriscape Association who volunteer their time. The 4,000 square-foot demonstration garden has been designed to showcase the beauty and seasonal change that are possible in a xeriscape landscape. It contains over 70 different species that grow well in full sun with little or no supplemental water. Plants were chosen for their bloom time and colour as well as for hardiness and attractive foliage. Last fall, volunteers planted bulbs, supplied by the city of Kelowna Partners-in-Parks program, to add early spring colour. Now there is an ever-changing succession of bloom from March through until frost. To help individuals see what they could do in their own gardens, there are five distinct theme gardens. The Mediterranean, Native and Rock Gardens contain very drought tolerant plants. These were watered in the first year to allow their roots to become established.

Dr. Cornett and his dismissal are the subject of a 2009 National Film Board documentary: Professor Norman Cornett— Since when do we divorce the right answer from an honest answer? The film is written and directed by Alanis Obomsawin, who takes a thoughtful look at how mainstream universities teach young people to become the citizens who will shape our society.

Obomsawin is one of Canada’s most distinguished documentary filmmakers. She has made over 35 films and has earned numerous honours, such as the 2001 Governor General’s Award in Visual and Media Arts. In 2002 she was appointed an Officer of the Order of Canada. This event is organized and presented in cooperation with the Faculty of Creative and Critical Studies at the UBC Okanagan.

West Kelowna still evolving 5 years after incorporation vote Wade Paterson STAFF REPORTER

Nearly five years have passed since West Kelowna voted whether or not it would become its own municipality. Prior to 2007, the Westside was governed by the Regional District of the Central Okanagan.

In the June 16, 2007 referendum, 84 per cent of taxpayers voted for West Kelowna to change to municipal status. In a much closer vote, the June 16, 2007 referendum also determined that 51 per cent wanted to create a Westside municipality, rather than joining the City of Kelowna.

Later that year, area residents participated in the first election campaign for a mayor and six councillors—the district was officially incorporated on Dec. 6, 2007. Mayor Doug Findlater said that he believes the integral vote has brought positive change over the past five years.

“I find people are pretty happy overall that we incorporated,” said Findlater. “I think there was an indication of that in November (2011) when incumbents were strongly re-elected; whereas, across the valley, incumbents were going down left and right.”

Findlater and four of six current councillors were part of the inaugural government formed in

2007. “Five of us have been through three elections in five years, which is phe-

District faces issues

Evolving from A17 years,” said Findlater. Highlights over the past five years include the creation of an Official Community Plan, infrastructure improvements and planning for fur-

ther improvements in the Westbank Town Centre, said Findlater. But certain areas haven’t progressed as far as the mayor would like. “I had expected that we’d certainly move a bit further along in embracing

the arts and culture in our community, but we’re just not ready to do that. As an organization, we can only do so many things. “We have also found a lot of things in terms of our relationships with the province, the regional dis-

trict and Westbank First Nation that we continue to try and straighten out… those are things that have taken more time than we anticipated.” Looking ahead, hard infrastructure and economic development are

the top priorities for the district in the next two or three years. Another big task will be assuming the road maintenance responsibility from the B.C. Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure at the end of

Local libraries could eventually get into the fundraising business. Okanagan Regional Library board members agreed Wednesday to hire a consultant for a fund development study to see if revenue sources exist beyond taxation. “We feel there are possibilities out there we could be missing,” said director Peter Schierbeck. “It would be primarily used for capital—new chairs or tables or an addition to the (book) collection).” Director Mike Macnabb, though, expressed some apprehension that the study could lead to ORL hiring someone to take on fundraising. However, other board members pointed out that all that’s been approved is a feasibility study and no decision has been made about fundraising. “We’re not seeking anyone’s funding at this time,” said director Jim Edgson. A similar view also came from director Lisa Cameron. “Without a feasibility study, it’s just us talking about what we think is best for the library,” she said. Lesley Dieno, ORL executive director, believes there are some unknowns about canvassing for money. “We want to know how much fundraising will cost to do—staff salaries, travel to communities, etc.,” she said. But she admits there’s a reluctance among the board to keep raising taxes. “There are a lot of things we could do if we had the money to do it.” Langley-based Liberty Quest Enterprises has been hired for up to $20,755 to lead the study. However, completing the full process is contingent on Liberty Quest identifying realistic opportunities for fundraising. Richard Rolke is a reporter for the Vernon Morningstar.

NEWS ▼ CRIME BRIEFS

Judge calls theft of elderly woman’s purse hitting ‘rock bottom’ Kathy Michaels STAFF REPORTER

A Victoria woman will spend the next four months and seven days behind bars for crimes related to a violent purse snatching at Orchard Park Mall. Judge Anne Wallace, who passed sentence on Ashley Woods, 29, noted she did not have the type of history she usually sees. “You got into a bad crowd and got into drugs (as a teen)…that happens,” she told the mother of two. What was unique, said Wallace, is that Woods got clean when she had a family, but upon its recent disintegration, quickly spiralled out of control and back into the drug culture. “Taking a purse from an elderly person has got to be rock bottom,” judge Wallace said.. “Yeah,” replied Woods. “There’s nowhere to go but up,” said Wallace, noting that she was putting Woods on probation for 18 months following her prison term, but with proven good behaviour she could be released from those conditions early. Wallace noted that working in Woods’ favour is that she’s entered a

guilty plea, and shown remorse since her arrest. That said, her crimes were on the serious end of the scale. According to Crown Counsel, Woods was at the shopping centre when she came across an elderly lady, sitting by a bench at the mall’s Tim Horton’s entrance. Woods approached the woman, with a knife and demanded her purse. The woman said “no” and ran after Woods, yelling and screaming. That’s when a security guard eating a donut nearby intervened. He ran after the pair, and when he caught up Woods threatened him with a knife she was holding. Despite her threat of violence, the guard pressed on and was able to subdue Woods. When she was arrested, she had a knife, wrench, two picks, three grams of marijuana and two grams of crystal meth. She was released shortly after that arrest, but while on probation she was caught with more drugs in her possession and has been in custody ever since. The time in custody since that second arrest on Feb. 10, was taken off her total sentence of seven months.

na man is in custody after he apparently broke into a home Thursday afternoon, 1 p.m., on Irma Road.

“A man was spotted inside a residence on the 600 block of Irma Road by a neighbourhood resi-

Bos narrowly escapes disaster Kevin Parnell STAFF REPORTER

Kelowna ultra runner Melanie Bos knew some-

thing was wrong during the nearly 10 hours that it took her to complete the 100 Kilometre World Championship ultra road

race in Italy last month. Bos was struggling for the entire race, feeling nauseous early and then vomiting several times

later in the race. Still she pushed on through the pain and discomfort and finished as the second fastest Canadian woman, crossing the finish line and meeting family, friends and other members of Team Canada. “When I finished the race I was just happy to be done,” Bos explained, back in Kelowna and feeling much better. “My family and the team were there and everyone was taking pictures. But I was really feeling off. I would be fine and then everything would go black. I just didn’t feel well.” A veteran of ultra running with several races of longer than 100km under her belt, Bos figured things would get better as she went along with her team and her family to a post-race celebration. But everything wasn’t fine. She continued to vomit and later that night she would wake up with extreme cramping and an elevated heart rate that would force her and husband Kevin to make a trip to the hospital. Lucky they did. Due to several factors, including dehydration, a virus and heat, Bos had gone into acute renal failure. She would be admitted to the hospital for four days. “It was scary,” she admitted. “The doctors were mostly speaking Italian. They speak English like we speak French so it was hard to understand what was going on. I hadn’t read a lot about ultra runners and kidney failure. I was lucky that we were close to a city the size of Kelowna with a good hospital and amenities that you need. The good news is that if you catch it early

LOCAL ULTRA RUNNER Melanie Bos is back in Kelowna after a scary trip to Italy where she completed a 100 kilometre race but ended up in hospital.

you can fully recover.” Turns out kidney failure is rare in ultra runners but Bos has since found a couple other examples of long distance runners having kidney issues. She says it’s something that runners should know about and although she says she was more prepared than ever for the 100 km distance, looking back, her prep-

arations in the days leading up to the race were not perfect. “Looking back I need to be way better prepared,” said the mother of three. “I’m a mom and my kids were there and I was entertaining and trying to look after them. I needed to focus more on myself and also take that time at the end of the race for myself.” Ironically, the night before the World Championships, Bos had been awarded the top female Canadian ultra runner trophy for 2011. Her result the next day was a full hour slower than at the World Championships the year before. Even with the physical problems that plagued her during the race and for several weeks after, Bos said she was happy she was able to finish. “I feel happy that I did finish but you definitely see how vulnerable you are,” she said. “I trained the best I had ever trained. I had a great program and great pre-races. I was ready to be in some discomfort for such a long race but I did not think I would be causing damage

to my organs.” Today Bos is back in Kelowna, back to health and back to running, although doctors have told her to avoid any races for four to six weeks. That’s fine with her but her trip to hospital in acute renal failure has done little to dampen her enthusiasm for the sport of ultra running. She plans to return to racing at the Kelowna Scorched Sole race on June 23 and also has the 125 km Great Canadian Death Race in Grande Cache, AB on her schedule for this year. And after what she calls a horrible race at the World Championships, she already is looking ahead to a return next year to the same event. “I was almost not going to do 100 km on the road anymore because it’s a tough one on your body as opposed to trail running,” she said. “I think I could have done so much better in the race so I think I’m going to do it again. You feel a little gypped. I was ready but it didn’t go right. Plus it’s a neat experience to go and represent your country.” kparnell@kelownacapnews.com

Scorched Sole all over Knox

Kelowna’s Penner is Oklahoma bound Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

The softball team’s longstanding record of success wasn’t the only reason Rachel Penner opted for an education at Oklahoma City University. Still, with eight NAIA national titles and a reputation as the best smallcollege program in the country, it made the decision that much easier for the 18-year-old pitcher from Kelowna. “It’s a great to be going to a winner, a program that’s so strong and really helps its players develop,” said Penner, a graduate of Kelowna Christian School. “I’m honoured they want me, and I’m excited to become part of their team.” Penner first began attracting the attention of U.S. colleges and universities when she attended a recruiting camp last October in Las Vegas. After pondering as rmany as 25 different scholarship opportunities, Penner narrowed her list down to three serious candidates, then made personal visits to each campus— OCU, Menlo College in California, and Oregon’s Northwest Christian. The Oklahoma school was a convincing winner in virtually every department. “It was basically the rwhole package I liked,” said Penner, who will be enrolled in the business program at OCU. “I’ve been guaranteed I’ll get to pitch, I like their small roster, their pitching coach, and the campus is really nice. “They have a good business program, too, so that was important,” she added. Penner was also imkpressed by OCU’s athletic training facilities, which includes a private gym specifically for the softball team. Penner has played the last 11 years in Kelowna’s minor softball system and been coached by her dad, Bernie, since Day 1. “It’s a great opportunity for Rachel,” said Bernie Penner, coach of this year’s U18A midget Heat, “and a really good fit for her.” Primarily a pitcher since her earliest days on the diamond, Penner has been a key figure in helping Kelowna Heat teams win three provincial gold medals over the years at the squirt, peewee and bantam levels. OCU coach Phil Mc-

KELOWNA’S Rachel Penner will attend Oklahoma City University this fall on a softball scholarship. Spadden likes the Kelowna teenager’s potential and is excited to have her on board for the 2012-13 season. “I’ve been impressed with her work ethic, her desire to play and everything else that goes with anyone who is willing to travel such a great distance to play this game,” said McSpadden who has led the Stars to the NAIA playoffs for 21 straight seasons. “Sometimes girls in our back yard might be more game-ready than some of the Canadian girls, but that doesn’t mean they’ll turn out to be a better player when you look at a four-year career. It’s where Rachel’s at as a person and a player that we like, and where I think that can take her down the road.” Penner knows the step up from minor ball in B.C. to the collegiate level in the U.S. will be considerable. She’s been working with local velocity and sprint coach Brandt Fralick in an

effort to improve her lower core strength and explosiveness, key assets for every pitcher. Given time and experience, coach McSpadden believes Penner will mature into a valuable member of the Stars’ pitching staff. “We think she will turn into more of a pitcher than a thrower as time goes along,” said McSpadden. “I’m sure she has more tools than that, but we’re looking for an

up-baller type pitcher which we think she can be, and we’re hoping that will translate into an effective part of our staff.” As for moving thousands of kilometres from home and being truly on her own for the first time, Penner isn’t the least bit apprehensive. “I’m excited to start a new chapter of my life, being on my own, having that independence,” she said. “I might get a bit homesick, but there’s al-

ways Skype. I know I’ll be calling home a lot. “There’s another Canadian on the team, too, so that should help as well.” Penner will move to Oklahoma City in August. Meanwhile, the OCU Stars fell just short of their ninth NAIA Div. 1 title this week, losing the national final to Shorter College from Georgia.

For the first time in its seven year history, Kelowna’s Scorched Sole Ultra race will be held at Knox Mountain Park. The event—which features 25, 50 or 80 kilometre trail runs as well as a kids’ race—will utilize almost every part of Knox mountain, including both lookouts, Kathleen Lake and Paul’s Tomb trail when it takes place June 23. Race director Dan Crockett says having the race come into Kelowna and use the popular Knox Mountain trails is going to give the event a unique feel. “The mandate of our race is to have a different course every year,” he said. “This is the seventh year and this is our seventh different course. I think (Knox Mountain) is a great place to have the race. It’s right in town, there are some great views. It has a real combination of everything.” Beginning at the base of Knox Mountain, this year’s course will wind its way up to the top of Knox and down the back towards Paul’s Tomb and include a trip around Kathleen Lake before coming back down to the finish line. Depending on the race length, competitors will do up to five loops of the challenging course. “It’s different than our other courses,” said Crockett. “It’s real scenic. There is 600 metres of elevation in every loop so it’s going to be a challenge. The fun part is there is going to be a lot more spectators than we normally have.” In past year’s the Scorched Sole has been

held out of town, using places like Okanagan Mountain Park or Myra Bellevue, among other locations. Crockett says bringing the race inside the Kelowna city limits may attract more locals to the event. “Most of our runners are typically from out of town,” he said. “I’m expecting our numbers might be down a bit because there is so much going on. Most real hard core ultra runners want to be out in the wilderness so we’re hoping to generate more Kelowna runners.” As in past years all the proceeds from the Scorched Sole will go to a variety of Kelownabased charities including Kelowna Mental Health, Canadian Tire Jumpstart, YMCA Strong Kids and the Kelowna Community Resources Centre. A typical year will see the volunteer-run event raising between $3,000 and $5,000 for charity. There are a few other unique pieces to the Scorched Sole as the event offers free registration to any other race director that wants to participate and also doesn’t penalize those that don’t complete the race with a Did Not Finish (DNF) declaration. “If you are out there, whatever you do you get credit for time and distance,” said Crockett. “We feel like making it to the starting line and being out there gives you the right to brag about it. I hate to see DNF’s. If you are out there making an attempt we think you should get credit for it.” For more information on the Scorched Sole and to register go to www. scorchedsole.com. kparnell@kelownacapnews.com

THE OKANAGAN Junior Athletics were one of 10 teams competing last weekend in Kelowna at the 2nd Annual Norm Caig Baseball Invitational.

Tourney a showcase of talent Kevin Parnell STAFF REPORTER

The Kamloops midget AAA baseball team may have walked away as the champion of last weekend’s Norm Caig Invitational Baseball Tournament in Kelowna, but the big winner was likely the future of the Okanagan College baseball program. OC hosted 10 midget or Junior Premier Baseball League teams from around the province last weekend in its second annual Norm Caig tournament, featuring players in Grades 9, 10 and 11 as OC looks for future talent for its college baseball program. “It’s a chance for us to bring in mainly players that are two years away from potentially playing for Okanagan College,� said OC head baseball coach Geoff White. “It’s a chance for the play-

ers to come in and see our facility at Elks Stadium, now that we have the batting cages and the stadium is getting renovated. It makes it easy for us to see roughly 180 young baseball players.� The four day tournament featured teams from around the Okanagan as well as the rest of the province, including the Okanagan Junior Athletics, who were 2-and-2 in the event and failed to make the playoffs. For White there was plenty of good baseball talent to watch over, even if at times it was a little raw. “There was some good baseball,� he said. “The players are mostly in Grade 9 and 10 so they are still learning the game.

Weeks was in Kelowna this week touring three local golf courses and taping a few episodes of ScoreGolfTV. Weeks played Black Mountain, Sunset Ranch and Kelowna Springs and was impressed with not only the courses but some of the deals and atmosphere at each place. With 19 courses in the area, Weeks said attracting golfers takes some planning. “I think all three of these courses are examples of what golf needs to focus on in the future,� Weeks wrote at www.scoregolf.com. “The course is the main drawing card but the atmosphere around it is

almost as important. Make golfers comfortable, give them a chance to get a deal on their fees, hold special events and they will beat a path to your door. You don’t need a 7,500-yard layout with waterfalls and greens that run 12 on the stimpmeter—you need playability and fun.

In the Skins format I liked it more and more.” Weir played 10 holes with former PGA Tour winner Richard Zokol, who is the resort’s executive director of golf development, and LPGA Tour player AJ Eathorne, who is heading up women’s instruction. The group was joined by a few lucky members who each played two holes over the course of the round. Weir has eight PGA Tour wins, including the 2003 Masters but has spent the year recovering from elbow surgery. He says he still has the passion to play. “I’m still optimistic, but it is a challenge,” he said. “Until that motivation goes away I’m not giving up.

Kelowna was dominant throughout the event, allowing only one goal in claiming the championship.

It was also the third straight year the KU Under-15 girls captured the gold medal as they allowed just three goals in four games, beating the Semi-Stingers in their final game for the gold medal. The Kelowna United U-15 boys played four solid games at the Kamloops Slurpee but failed to bring home a medal after going 2-and-2 at the event, earning wins over Upper Island and Terrace and losing to Surrey and Edmonton.

‘Power of drum speaks to women’ Watson ethereal and airy Kristi Patton

PATRICK WATSON: ADVENTURES IN YOUR OWN BACKYARD (SECRET CITY RECORDS)

BLACK PRESS REPORTER

The first irony of this fourth Patrick Watson CD titled Adventures In Your Own Backyard is that he and his eponymous band recorded this in his Montreal apartment that obviously has no backyard.

SOUNDING OFF

STEVE KIDD/CONTRIBUTOR

BOBBY BOVENZI does a bit of street theatre at the Penticton Farmers’ Market last summer, leading onlookers in a giant drum circle. It was will working on his masters degree in elementary education, with a bachelors in African American studies, Bovenzi first found his passion for drumming. He took an African drum class to learn about the culture and fell in love immediately. “I was starting to work in the city school system in New York where I grew up and I brought my drums into the class and attendance went from 60 per cent to almost 90 per cent. I decided I wasn’t really loving math, science and the curriculum, but I loved doing the drumming after school so I decided to do this as my profession,� he said. Bovenzi moved to Oregon, where he met his wife, and came to the Okanagan to conduct a family music camp and also fell in love with the area. Now he has anywhere from 75 to 100 students drumming throughout the valley.

“Surprisingly, the people who come to class are mostly women. I think the power of the drum really speaks to women. It is a little bit therapeutic, but what I find is women don’t necessarily have the hang-ups that men do. Women are more free to get up and dance and do something in front of someone else and not feel so judged,� said Bovenzi, although he added he is starting to see more men sign up for beginner classes. It is another reason why he organized the DJ, drum and dance party in Penticton. Bovenzi is inviting people who are new to drumming to join experienced drummers in the drum circle with hopes to expose more people to it. Nankama World Beat Events is putting the party together to promote the third annual Okanagan Rhythm Fest at the Rotary Centre for the Arts in Kelowna June 22 to 23.       

A DJ, drum and dance party in Penticton next weekend will act as a warm up for the Okanagan Rhythm Festival at Kelowna’s Rotary Centre for the Arts next month. “It is the first time we have tried a party like this here, so it is a little experimental,� said Bobby Bovenzi, event organizer. “In the past I have drummed with DJs in bars and clubs and people have really enjoyed it. I love to drum along with a DJ because it gives a different sound with the bass, singing and synth effects.� Held on June 1, the first set of the evening will begin at 7 p.m. with a family friendly drumming circle and dancing combined with DJ Tribalizer spinning hip hop, disco and funky grooves. The stage will then be turned over to Lobo Blanco to get everybody moving to their original funky Latin reggae dance grooves with a 45 minute set. The second set begins at 9 p.m. and includes the opening of the beer and wine sales, featuring Firehall Brewery from Oliver and Clos du Soleil wine from Keremeos. Lobo Blanco will close the evening with DJ Tribalizer vs drum circle/trance/tribal jam until about midnight. “We will have 60 or 70 drums available for people to join the drum circle with the DJ and it will go back and forth with the DJ spinning different styles of house and trance music. It is also open for people to come out and dance,� said Bovenzi.

Both events are sponsored by Big O Tires. Okanagan Rhythm Fest will feature performances, drum circles and a DJ dance party on June 22 and a full day of workshops on June 23 including African, Brazilian, Middle Easter, Frame, Cajon, Japanese and Afro-Cuban drumming. There will also be a didgeridoo and West African dance workshop and a closing night salsa dance party. The DJ, drum and dance party will be held at Orchard House Theatre, 157 Orchard St. in Penticton and is an all ages, familyfriendly show. Tickets are available at Red Bag Clothing, Dragon’s Den and Fibonacci CafÊ and Roastery or at the door and are $15. Kids aged 12 and under are free. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Kristi Patton is a Black Press reporter with Penticton Western News.

Bruce Mitchell That mythical backyard must therefore be Watson’s own imagination and this ethereal and airy album is most likely the soundtrack to Watson’s fanciful musings and wandering spirit. All of Watson’s last three albums hit the Canadian top 10 but this new release made its debut at the No.2 spot and only kept from the best selling album in our native Canada by the new Jason Mraz. And that alone might be something of phenomenon in that there is no obvious pop styled single on this release where Watson and Co. dabble in light orchestral pop, ambient nufolk and pleasantly chaotic soundscapes. Watson sings with a gender neutral falsetto on almost all of this album not counting of course the seemingly extemporaneous instrumentals The Things You Do and

Swimming Pools that indeed sounds like it was recorded slightly submerged for its cinematics. My fave track here is the almost conventional Into Giants where I thought I recognized a few nods to the great lost 60s psychedelic album Forever Changes by Love with Arthur Lee. The album liner photos and inner sleeve graphics are also play with illusions and perspective in that the woman seemingly walking down the street is actually walking amongst doll houses which adds something to the alt-cinematic flair to this disc. Anyway, this is a rarefied listen that is often opaque and not readily comprehensible but it is also a beautiful listen and one that I have kept returning to without actually knowing why other than it feels good. Patrick Watson won Canada’s coveted Polaris Prize for best album a couple of years back (as voted on by industry types and musical peers)

and Adventures I Your Own Backyard continues with the excellence of his Wooden Arms release. B+

WILLIE NELSON: HEROES (SONY)

Willie Nelson has only been a recording artist for about 50 years due to his relatively late start in music in his early 30s. Yes, Willie is about to become an octogenarian but at the beginning his career as an ace song writer (Crazy for Patsy Cline and Hello Walls for Faron Young says enough) no one would sign him to record his own music because Nelson had an unusual, nasally voice. That voice has since made Nelson into an American country music icon and Heroes is his j umpteenth album and one that is serviceable if not up to par with his best material. Nelson shines at his best on the up-tempo swing songs here like the

More pluses than minuses to Willie Mitchell from A26 1940s classics My Window Faces The South and Home Is In San Antone. But more modern fare includes surprisingly good versions of Pearl Jam’s Just Breathe, Tom Waits’ Come On Up To The House (with guest Sheryl Crow) and Coldplay’s The Scientist where Nelson turns all of these into low key ballads. The album starts with an elegiac duet with Merle Haggard on A Horse Called Music while the second song is a novelty homage to marijuana on Roll Me Up that features Snoop Dogg and Kris Kristofferson. This bit of tom-foolery makes sense since Nelson swears pot has added 20 years to his life since he took it up instead of drink. Anyway, Nelson tries a little too hard to promote his two sons on Heroes where they contribute some average material but there are more pluses than minuses to this CD that old Willie fans will enjoy.

DOWNLOAD OF THE WEEK Booker T & The M.G.’S: Melting Pot One of the best bass players of all time, Donald ‘Duck’ Dunn of the Stax label “Memphis Group,� passed away earlier this week at the age of 70 while on tour. Some have argued that

Dunn was the best soul bassist on the planet while others might argue for James Jamerson (I Heard It Through The Grapevine) of MoTown’s Funk Brothers but no matter, as

Dunn is now in the best company available. Melting Pot was the title track of Booker T & The M.G.’s best album...but one when they were on the downside of

a career as a recording act given earlier hits like Green Onions and Hip Hug Her‌and is my fave tune they ever did with its extended jam and tight but soulful grooves.

NOTICE TO THE PUBLIC KGH Blood Collection Lab located at 2268 Pandosy Street will be CLOSED MAY 26TH & MAY 27TH On May 28, 2012 the Outpatient Blood Collection department of the Kelowna General Hospital Laboratory will be moving to its new location at 2251 Pandosy Street, which is across Pandosy Street from its former location. Hours to access the Outpatient Lab are 7:30 am to 5:00 pm. • Access to paid parking under the new building is off Pandosy St., east onto Royal Ave., then south in the back lane. A barrier on Rose Avenue prevents access from Pandosy at the south end of the building. Additional parking is available in the main Hospital lots. • From the parking lot, enter the building through the door at the Visitor and Client Drop off Area. • Walk straight down the hall to the Outpatient Laboratory waiting area. • You can also access the Lab Outpatient area by going through the main hospital campus and across the link to the third floor of the Dr. Walter Anderson Building. From there take the elevator to the first level, turn left and walk down the hall to the Outpatient area.

hris Brown certainly knows how to throw a party. Last weekend, Brown and all his hardworking friends hosted the gazzilionth annual Rutland May Days and, based on what Tez and I saw, it seemed to be a gigantic success. Judging the May Days parade was a complete riot, especially getting to work with Lori Welbourne and Scott Ross. The three of us chuckled all morning. Tez and I wandered the fairgrounds for a while afterwards and it was clear that Brown and other organizers had done a top-notch job of planning the perfect fun-filled family event. Some of the security guards patrolling the entrance to the park might have been a bit too overzealous and serious, but that’s the only negative I could find. Well done, Chris and crew! ••• As an after-bite to the parade, Lori Welbourne invited me to take part in one of her famous slapstick video shoots on Tuesday. A couple of us played tourists at three local wineries with Lori spoofing as a tour guide. The finished product should be good for a twominute howl. Keep an eye (and ear) out for it appearing soon on YouTube or Facebook. Thanks so much to Quails’ Gate, Summerhill Pyramid Winery and the Vibrant Vine for putting up with a van full of whackos. Many thanks as well to my

HODGE friend Bill Jack, with PODGE Club Wine Tours, for

playing chauffer. ••• One of the particular pearls of wisdom that arose from Charlie the tour was our stop Hodge at the Vibrant Vine and meeting owner Tony Lewis. Lewis has a fascinating and unique winery, complete with amazing artwork and music also offered at the facility. Starting in June, the funky winery hosts various bands every weekend allowing visitors to enjoy top shelf music by local pros as well as some fabulous wine. The first event is June 2 with Brent Tyler playing music. On June 3 it will be Windborn on stage. Check it out—you will not be sorry. For more info check out tastevibrantvines.com. ••• If you are looking for something fun to do and winning $1,000 in nifty interior design items interests you, then check out the Dwell town home project on Ambrosi Road this Sunday, May 27, from 1 to 4 p.m. (see story on B16). That’s when the draw will be made for the superb prize donated by Momentum Interiors and Mission Group. I recently had the total pleasure of assisting Mission Group with a project that saw the local builders recruit eight talented young Centre for Arts and Technology Okanagan interior design students to design two of the town homes within the funky facility. For the past two months, Mission Group has held open hous-

es every Saturday and Sunday for folks to look at the two designs by the students (and other homes) at the site. A draw barrel is on location and visitors are asked to vote for their favourite of the two homes planned and staged on the inside by the students. This Sunday, Shannon Nystrom of Momentum Interiors will draw the name of the lucky winner. You can visit the town homes and enter the draw right up until 4 p.m. Check out Dwell—it’s very cool. ••• It dawned on me the other day that I had not acknowledged the recent winning of the Anita Tozer Memorial Award to long time Kelowna resident and supporter Dr. Barry Urness. Urness won the prestigious award back in late April; however, I was so caught up in my own little world that I missed the Kelowna Civic Awards event. Urness is a very well deserved recipient of the award. I have known him for 20 years but especially the past five or so when he was my regular back snapper. Urness has since left his chiropractic business and I miss his skills, but fortunately we keep in touch for lunches occasionally. He is the person most responsible for the fact that we have the Okanagan Sun football team in town as it was his vision and hard work that created that team. His multiple years of work on the civic awards sports selection committee was amazing and greatly valued. Congratulations to you my dear friend.

Kelowna chef makes produce donation pitch for food bank Kelowna chef Jon Garratt has challenged all growers and gardeners to plant an extra row of produce and help local families seeking support from the Kelowna Community Food Bank. “B.C.’s dieticians report that fresh produce is increasingly beyond the reach of many low-income and working households,” said Lenetta Parry, food bank associate executive director. “Too many children and seniors are not getting the nutrition they need. Our Plant a Row Grow a Row program provides fresh, locally grown produce, through it; we strive to improve the nutritional quality of the food that we distribute.” The food bank has seen a steady and significant increase in donated produce, bringing in more than 98,000 pounds of produce since the program’s inception in 2004. “The Okanagan Chef’s Association is a strong supporter of local food and programs like Plant a Row Grow a Row,” said Garratt. “We live in one of the most fertile valleys in B.C.; there is an abundance of fresh produce from May until October.” Garratt is asking growers from large

nurseries to backyard gardeners to plant an extra row for the food bank. “The food bank receives about 20,000 pounds of produce over the summer, this year we would like to double that.” In April, Garratt and local film maker David Hughes shot a video to promote the Plant A Row Grow A Row program. Their video has been seen by more than 30,000 viewers on the Internet. Garratt is hoping to inspire a grass roots passion for urban gardening. “We are raising a generation entirely on processed food,” he said. “I grew up eating fresh vegetables from my grandparent’s garden. There has been a huge loss of skill and connection to our food supply. Too many kids don’t know where their food comes from.” Last week, Garratt kick started Plant A Row Grow A Row with the first annual Tomato Party at the food bank. “Thanks to the Greenery Garden Centre, we distributed 50 potted tomato plants to families. “I want kids to experience that same home grown freshness.” Produce can be dropped off at the Kelowna food bank, 1265 Ellis St., Monday to Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p. m.

Positive results for weight loss challenge participants As someone who was physically fit in his younger years and had a good

understanding of nutrition, Dan Andersen knew he need to lose weight.

And he found the perfect vehicle to do that by participating in the inaug-

Kelowna Ballroom Chris Thorburn

ural Extreme Pita/World Gym Weight Loss Challenge. It was incorrectly reported earlier this week that Andersen had actually lost 118.18 lbs during the three month challenge. While that would have been impressive, that figure actually reflected the total loss by all nine challenge participants. However, what Anderson, 53, was able to achieve was to lose 46 pounds in 42 days, reaching his goal of 210 lbs while losing almost 11 inches of body fat. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was at 256 pounds when I started and I reached my objective halfway through the challenge,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So from that point on I was able to work on building up muscle. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I knew what I had to do, change my diet and

lifestyle habits.â&#x20AC;? Andersen said nutrition an exercise always go hand in hand when trying to lose weight, a message the World Gym staff wanted to impose on all the challenge participants. Anderson said his exercise machine workouts at the gym amounted to climbing 840 sets of stairs a week. While receiving sponsor prizes along the way was nice, the biggest benefit for Andersen is just feeling healthier. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I put on a weighted jacket with the equivalent weight I had lost and that was quite a workout,â&#x20AC;? he said, a reminder of just how much strain and stress carrying that extra weight put on his body. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There was puddles of sweat on the gym floor,â&#x20AC;? he laughed. â&#x20AC;&#x153; I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to go back to that weight again.â&#x20AC;?

MOTORING ▼ FIRST DRIVE

Open roads, cloudless sky in a red SL 550 Mercedes-Benz Jim Robinson CONTRIBUTOR

It wasn’t so much the eyebrow-raising amenities or the riveting acceleration of the 2013 Mercedes-Benz SL 550 that captured my attention, but the fuel mileage. What! Good mileage in a 429 hp (516 lb/ft of torque) twin-turbo V8 luxury roadster was the last thing I was thinking about during the Canadian press launch in Halifax—but the gas gauge rarely lies. After some 400 km slicing through mostly scenic secondary highways across the centre of Nova Scotia, my co-driver and I used just a tad below half a tank. Later I learned the EnerGuide numbers for the new SL 550 are

12.7/8.1L/100 km city/ highway. Compare that to a non-turbo Japanese 3.5-litre SUV tested recently on these pages at 12.3/8.2L/100 km city/ highway and you see why it caught my eye. For another comparison the outgoing SL comes in at 15.6/9.7L/100 km city/ highway. You’d never guess by looking at the engine. It’s a DOHC 4.6-litre V8 with turbo intake runners the size of rainwater downpipes. All shrouded and jam-packed into the engine bay, good on gas is the last thing that comes to mind. And it is fast. The $129,900 (to start) SL 550 tested here gets from 0-100 km/h in 4.6 seconds. See Mercedes B4

CONTRIBUTED

THE 2013 MERCEDES-BENZ SL 550 is more powerful and 13 per cent more fuel-efficient than the outgoing model. It was the SL that created the super sportscar 60 years ago and arguably remains so to this day.

MOTORING

Easy cruising in SL 550 Mercedes from B1 If that isn’t enough, the SL AMG 63 with this 530 hp (590 lb/ft) 5.5-litre biturbo does 0-100 km/h in 4.3 seconds and 4.2 seconds if you add the AMG Performance Package. And just to hammer it home, the SL AMG 65 with 621 hp (738 lb/ft) 6.0-litre V12 does it in 4.1 seconds with a top speed of 300 km/h. Highway cruising in the SL 550 is effortless. You can drive this car across Canada and emerge relaxed and rested such is its demeanor on the long haul. But when you get to roads such as we enjoyed,

the real beauty of the new SL 550 comes to the fore and that’s the bevy of driver aids all working transparently. And the key word here is transparency. One of the contributors is Active Body Control (ABC) that adapts the damping of the car body to the current driving situation in a split second using high-pressure hydraulics and two high-performance microcomputers. By countering body pitch, roll and squat, the ABC system provides tenacious road holding as well as improved ride comfort.

Remember Everyone Drives a Used Vehicle!

If that is not enough, there is a button just behind the dainty little shifter marked “ABC Sport” for when the roads are challenging and “ABC Comfort” for that long distance cruise. On the nifty side is another button just to the right to manually adjust ride height and beside that one, when pressed, a graphic shows on the centre monitor with G forces in real time. The standard 7GTRONIC PLUS automatic transmission has been optimized in relation to fuel consumption and comfort and also contributes to low fuel consumption not to mention the 125 kg lighter body thanks to the extensive use of aluminum. The SL Active Lane Keeping Assist system raises the bar. When you stray across the yellow line, it gives a little vibration to the steering wheel. This is not new, but if you go too far over, the second stage steps in and the traction control/braking/steer-

twin turbo V8 producing 429 hp and 516 lb/ft of torque. Note the size of the turbo intake runners on each side of the block. ing brings you back. I’d never heard of this before my co-driver demonstrated the feature to me. Inside, the new SL brims over with a truly lengthy list of standard and optional features. One is the unique “Frontbass” system, which turns the luxury sports car into a concert hall regardless whether the top is open or closed. It features subwoofers buried in the front foot wells that create, what is

in fact, a resonating chamber that lets the low notes come through with minimum distortion regardless of volume. The adaptive windshield wipe/wash system is what Mercedes-Benz calls MAGIC VISION CONTROL. Using laser cut spouts on each side of the blade, water is used as required. Depending on the direction of the wipe it becomes splashless. It is also heated from the fluid reservoir to the wiper arms and blade.

INSTEAD of a flimsy plastic snap-in wind blocker, the SL 550 has a power-operated unit that disappears between the seats when not in use. The big plus is it cleans the windshield without disrupting the

view ahead.

MOTORING

Enjoy a massage while driving your SL 550 Mercedes from B4 I could write volumes about the interior amenities but I have to mention the 10-way power front seats. They have a massage function with four settings including one called “Fast and Vigorous.” Folks, I don’t make these things up. Anytime we stopped for coffee, the SL 550 in gleaming red attracted a crowd. Typical was four hydro (I believe) workers who asked a lot of questions and were delighted to sit in the car and have their pictures taken. Longer than the outgoing SL, the upright grille with large threepointed star, big slated air vents behind each front wheel and (for Canada) standard 19-inch AMG wheels make for an imposing package moving or standing still. One way of wowing the onlookers was demonstrating how the trunk could be opened with the swipe of a foot under the rear bumper. Part of the Premium Package, there are motion sensors beneath the rear valance panel. As long has you have the key in your pocket, you can walk up with arms full of groceries swipe and, presto, it opens. However, you better not buy a lot of groceries. Cargo is 364 litres with

the roof down, 504 litres with it up. With the roof retracted, three or four soft-sided luggage bags are about it. The roof goes up and down in 20 seconds and there are two to chose from. Also part of the system is a power wind blocker that retracts between the two seats doing away with all the fuss and bother of plastic, folding contraptions that snap into place. Through the full 400 km we never had the top up and I’ve got a sunburned nose to prove it. It was a glorious day in brilliant sunshine on near traffic free open roads. And in a red roadster like the 2013 MercedesBenz SL 550 how does it get better than that?

MOTORING ▼ TEST DRIVE

Equinox marks a Season of Excellence in the SUV segment Rob Beintema METROLAND MEDIA

Look up the word “Equinox” and you’ll see it signals the shifting of seasons. Which is why it seems particularly suitable when you consider how Chevrolet’s compact crossover by the same name has become a benchmark of change within GM’s SUV lineup. This was reinforced when an improved second generation 2010 Equinox debuted at the 2009 North American International Auto Show in Detroit and went on sale later the same year as a 2010 model. The latest gen Chevrolet Equinox (along with its GMC Terrain sibling) is built on a stiffer version of the “Theta” platform, harnesses a pair of fuel-efficient gasoline direct injection engines, and combines all the crossover traits of sedan-like ride and maneuverability, along with SUV-style utility, putting those qualities together with fit and finish unexpected in this kind of entry-level lineup. The Equinox lineup offers two engine choices

- a standard 2.4-litre four-cylinder or optional 3.0-litre V6. Both engines are mated to six-speed automatic transmissions and both can be hooked to either a standard frontwheel drive (FWD) system, or all-wheel drive (AWD) configuration, a $1,650 option. The 2.4-litre Ecotec direct-injected I-4 engine delivers 182 hp at 6700 rpm and 172 lb/ ft of torque at 4900 rpm. Fuel efficiency is rated at 9.2/6.1L/100km (city/ hwy)(FWD). Equinox AWD models will consume about an extra litre per 100 km (official ratings below). This engine was adapted for 2012 for E85 FlexFuel capability. An “Eco” mode setting on 2.4-litre-equipped models also alters shift points to improve fuel efficiency. GM has been boasting up to 1,100 kilometres of highway-only cruising range per tank and segment-best highway fuel efficiency with this particular engine and model configuration, although that might recently have been surpassed by the new 2013 Ford Escape.

THE 2012 CHEVROLET EQUINOX, seen here in Twilight Blue Metallic and in top-of-the-line LTZ AWD trim combines sedan-like levels of fuel efficiency with the robust utility and family-friendly room of a compact SUV. The four-banger, as tested here, does a decent job in both power and eco-

nomical considerations over almost all applications, although it will occasionally hunt for a lower gear on a hill climb. For those looking for a little more passing power or trailer towing potential, an optional 3.0-litre directinjected V6 engine is rated at 264 hp at 6,950 rpm

and 222 lb/ft at 5100 rpm. Fuel economy works out to 12.4/8.1L/100km (city/ hwy) (FWD). An AWD V6 model will use about a half a litre more than the FWD version per 100 km. This engine was also made E85 ethanol capable in the previous year, although all this E85 stuff

seems pretty well a moot point in most Canadian jurisdictions. The V6 engine is a $1,725 option (actually more like $2,160 once you figure in the complementary add-ons) that, along with the pump premium, requires a little thought before a purchase

sarily make it a bare bones entry. The LS comes nicely equipped with standards that include 17inch painted aluminum wheels, four-wheel ABS disk brakes with hill assist, traction control and StabiliTrak electronic stability control, a rear spoiler, rear washer/wiper, variable intermittent wipers, air conditioning, tilt and telescopic steering, cruise control, power windows, power locks, keyless entry, OnStar, power driver’s seat with height and lumbar adjustment, a Multi-Flex sliding rear seat, automatic headlamps, Bluetooth connectivity and an 80-watt six-speaker AM/FM/CD/ MP3 audio system. Each trim level ups the ante with more standard features and available options, the particulars of which are best checked out online, culminating in the full blown, top-of-theline LTZ trim level, as tested here, that adds, among other things - chrome accents, heated perforated leather seats, halogen projector headlamps, driver’s memory settings, power liftgate, rear park assist, ambient lighting and rear cargo cover and net. It’s a pretty luxurious package for a compact crossover but, regardless of trim level, the 2012 Chev Equinox offers a competent and contemporary take on the modern SUV, comfortable enough for five with cargo space rated at 872 litres (30.8 cu ft) expanding to 1803 litres (63.7 cu ft) with the second row folded flat. Those yearly equipment updates help keep the Equinox current in a very competitive field that includes the Toyota RAV4, the Honda CR-V and the new 2013 Ford Escape, among others. But with evolving equipment levels and a revised design that is only two years old, the Equi-

nox is holding it own in this not-so-compact crossover segment. The Equinox has been a home run hit for Chevrolet and GM. The CAMI plant is Ingersoll, Ontario has been running three shifts and overtime to keep up supply, as well as outsourcing some finishing work to the Oshawa plants. We can consider a long list of ingredients that have contributed to the Equinox’s best-selling popularity. But that made in Canada tag on the doorplate is not only another good reason to consider a purchase. It’s an important part of the recipe that has made the 2012 Chevrolet Equinox a runaway success.

Cargo is another area where the Navigator is hard to beat. There are actually two sets of cargo numbers between the standard Navigator and the stretched Navigator L. The L adds 401 mm (15.8 in) of length behind the third row seat. Cargo volumes for the Navigator/Navigator L are: behind first row: 2,925/3,630 litres; behind second row, 1,540/2,444 litres; behind third row, 513/1,206 litres. Navigator comes with a Cargo Management System consisting of dividers that keep things such as luggage and groceries from rolling around. The 10-way power front seats are both heated and cooled with six different temperature settings. The second row captain’s chairs both recline and have two heat settings. These seats also fold forward to increase cargo area. The third row 60/40 split/fold bench has a power fold function activated by a button on the right cargo wall for each seat. A power tailgate is standard. Up front in the driver’s seat the amount of space

MOTORING around you is a bit hard to get used to if you come from a compact car. It’s a real reach over to the centre console to turn up the volume although the functions are all on the steering wheel, as well. One thing I loved was the instrument panel with a truly retro look capped off by four analog gauges across the top for voltage, fuel level, engine temp and oil temp. I remember when these were standard and I forgot how much more informed I was. Keep the idiot lights and bring back analog! Smack in the middle of the expansive walnut trimmed centre stack is the infotainment system with 6.5-inch colour screen. At the core is Ford/ Lincoln’s SYNC system developed with Microsoft. Voice activated, it controls functions such as cellphone, media and vehicle information. It allows the driver to access phone calls, hear text messages, get playlists/flash drives and even streams music through Bluetooth. If SYNC senses a call coming in, it lowers the volume so you will hear it. As noted, there isn’t a

lot extra you can put into a Navigator, an included power sunroof and remote start being examples. The 2012 tested here starts at $73,500 with special white tri-coat metallic paint costing $500. Listed as a no charge option was the second row 40/20/40 leather bench seat. Part if the package is load levelling rear suspension. But with the big engine comes a big environmental green levy of $2,000. Adding it all up, the as tested price was $77,730 which included a $1,600 shipping fee. It’s a long way up into the cabin but it’s helped by the power deployable running boards that fold down when a door is opened and tuck up automatically when the door is closed. Once in the driver’s seat you are struck by the size of the outside mirrors. In the upper outside corner of each mirror is a smaller concave mirror that gives a much wider rearward field of view. The engine starts with a big V8 whoosh. The six-speed automatic is so seamless in shifting so that you are never quite sure what gear you are in. It’s only when you tromp the

Fuel consumption is estimated at 16.4/11.3L/100 km (17/25 mpg) city/highway but it will only be the feather-footed that get this kind of mileage. Helping this out a bit is a fuel shut-

off system that automatically starts working when the Navigator is running at cruising speeds. The Navigator is also a certified flex-fuel vehicle which means it can run on E85 which is 85 per cent ethanol and 15 per cent gasoline. This, of course, primarily helps our Amer-

ican cousins where E85 is available. Sadly this is not the case in Canada. The four-wheel-drive on the Navigator is Ford’s rock-solid Control Trac System found in a wide variety of Ford working trucks. Selectable by buttons on the centre stack, picking a traction mode to

match the terrain is simple. My week with the Navigator was strictly around town. For such a big truck, it was easy to park partly because of the command-

Still a market for full-sized vehicles

Lincoln from B11 ing view forward from the driver’s seat and standard rearview camera and Reverse Sensing System. To try and park in a cramped apartment building underground would be a challenge.

It would be easy to dismiss the Lincoln Navigator along with all the big premium SUVs as creatures of a time before gasoline started averaging $1.30 a litre instead of touching that amount just five years ago when we all went nuts.

But on a recent trip to Phoenix to test a compact SUV I counted dozens of Navigators and Escalades, all brand new and all with extras like huge wheels. There is still a market for a full-size premium SUV and with all it’s got going for it, maybe the

2012 Navigator shouldn’t be Lincoln’s forgotten SUV.

MOTORING â&#x2013;ź PORSCHE

918 Spyder prototypes are to begin testing brid vehicle combining a high-performance combustion engine with cutting-edge electric motors for extraordinary performance: on the one hand, the dynamics of a racing machine boasting more than 770 hp, on the other hand, fuel consumption in the region of three litres per 100 kilometres. Moreover, Porsche is breaking yet more new ground with the technology demonstrator with spectacular solutions such as the full carbon fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP) monocoque with unit carrier, fully adaptive aerodynamics, adaptive rear-axle steering and the upwardventing â&#x20AC;&#x153;top pipesâ&#x20AC;? exhaust system. In the process, the 918 Spyder is offering a glimpse of what Porsche Intelligent Performance may be capable of in future.

Porsche 911 is 2012 World Performance Car At the recent New York International Auto Show, the Porsche 911 was declared the 2012 World Performance Car. The Porsche 911 was chosen from an initial entry list of 19 new cars from all over the world, then shortlisted to three finalists with the Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 and McLaren MP4-12C. This is the sixth out of seven times Porsche has made it into the top three of the World Performance Car category; and Porscheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fourth consecutive time in the top three. The Porsche Cayman S had the honour of winning the inaugural award in 2006.

The 918 Spyder is planned for production at the end of September 2013, with the first customer deliveries currently scheduled for late in 2013.

On May 27, a lucky winner is going to receive a $1,000 shopping spree at Momentum Interiors. All you have to do is visit Dwell, a townhome community in Kelowna at 1851 Ambrosi St. on Saturday, May 26, or Sunday, May 27, from 1 to 4 p.m., and cast your vote for the Next Top Designer. Mission Group, a well respected and multiple award-winning builder in Kelowna, has collaborated together with Momentum Interiors and Interior Design Students at CATO (Centre for Arts & Technology Okanagan) on a one of a kind project named The Next Top Designer. Mission Group designed and built the trendy urban townhomes named Dwell, the interior design was completed by two teams of CATO students with design guidance and furnishings provided by Momentum Interiors. This unique collaboration has brought Kelowna businesses and students together. Dwell is the trendy urban com-

72

munity in Central Kelowna with modern exteriors, three levels of living space, and roof top patios all designed to appeal to the 20-30 age crowd. So it only seemed fitting for the CATO students to get involved in the design process. CATO students under the direction of department head Gisela Scholze took up the challenge. Mission Group’s president Randall Shier approached Shannon and Gary Nystrom, of Momentum Interiors, to ask if they would supply the home furnishings and mentorship required throughout the design process. Momentum Interiors is the ultimate ‘one-stop shop’ for home interior design and décor. From concept to completion, Momentum is the only company in North America offering clients design, building, and furnishings in one centre. Mission Group asked the interior design students to create two unique display homes, one targeted to a single male and the other targeted to a working couple with no children.

For nearly four months, eight Interior Design Students (broken into two teams of four), worked hand in hand with Momentum Interiors in designing, selecting, and staging the two show homes at Dwell. Both teams were encouraged to be creative, and were mentored by Nystrom. Last month, more than 200 residents and visitors attended the show homes displaying the completed student works at Dwell. Now, Mission Group, Momentum Interiors and the CATO students want to know which of the two designs you like best. The public is encouraged to visit the site any Saturday and Sunday between 1 and 4 p.m, tour the two homes, and then cast their ballot at the onsite entry box. On May 27, a wrap-up party for the Next Top Designer at Dwell will be taking place from 1 to 5 p.m. Nystromwill draw the lucky winner of the $1,000 shopping spree and announce who is voted the Next Top Designer at 4 p.m.

Cedar Manor facility in Rutland given a landscaping facelift

The Society of Hope officially unveiled the Cedar Manor new landscape upgraded look this week. The Society of Hope is a non-profit housing society. Cedar Manor, located in Rutland at 525 Franklyn Rd., was originally constructed in 1981. It is funded through CMHC and BC Housing, a 68-unit apartment building. It has a large parkade under, and around, the entire building. The parkade recently had a 25 year waterproof membrane originally installed. Consequently, after 30 years, it was necessary to remove the mature landscaping and replace the water proof membrane. This called for the undertaking of a major construction project by the society. It was felt this was an opportune time to not only make the needed repair, but also to accomplish numerous other strar

t

tegic objectives. The included new outdoor amenities as the formerly passive landscape was rarely used. It was consisted of large lawn areas that required weekly cutting, regular fertilizing and lots of water. This space was redesigned to become active living space. It now features 10 new raised community gardens; a new patio for the residents to enjoy; a new park bench and “parklike” sitting area near the front entrance; and old Mugo pine shrubs were removed so gardens areas could be made available to residents to plant their own flowers. The society also replaced existing landscaping with new xeriscape features to reduce water consumption, reduce fertilizer and reduce weekly lawn maintenance.

Ecuador’s ecolodges put tropical woodland at your doorstep Ellen Creager CONTRIBUTOR

EL ORIENTE, Ecuador—This is one rain forest the world has saved. After donors around the globe pledged $116 million by the December 2011 deadline to prevent oil drilling in the biologically fragile Yasu-

ni National Park, the Ecuadorian government agreed to leave it alone—for now. There will be no roads, drilling or pipelines this year. Instead, tourists can continue to witness the damp glory of the region’s tangled forests and the riotous colour of even the smallest frog and butterfly.

“Everyone on Earth should see the rain forest if they want to. It is precious; it is our lifeline to survival,” says Robyn Burnham, associate professor of ecology and evolutionary biology at the University of Michigan. “Ecotourism may help if it can be strictly controlled.” Visiting the Amazon isn’t as easy as spending a week in Tampa. But it can be life-changing.

at an organic level,â&#x20AC;? Burnham says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;we might be more willing as humans to sacrifice our comfort to save other species.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘ The sounds are a symphony, an orchestra, a hallelujah chorus of nature. The forest is a primeval tangle of canopy and undergrowth. Within the first two hours Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m here, I see monkeys, two kinds of toucan, a falcon and songbirds galore. At night, visitors to La Selva Amazon Ecolodge sleep in small huts, surrounded by mosquito nets. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like sleep-away camp for grownups. Dinner is cooked by a French chef. And one day in the late afternoon, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a strange hooting bird call in the trees. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a motmot,â&#x20AC;? says naturalist Daniel King, as if describing a sparrow or pigeon, no big deal. The call of the motmot is the coolest thing. So is catching a piranha. So is seeing the grand and lush South American Amazon for yourself. Despite what most Americans imagine, the Amazon is a region, not just a river. A cradle of Earthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best treasures, the rain forest comprises about 2.3 million square miles of the continent from Ecuador and Peru to Brazilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Atlantic coast. Some popular Brazilian Amazon tourist cities have nearly two million residents. Two million! This is not that trip. The Amazon I have come to see is the small, remote version. This lodge is on the Napo River, an Amazon River tributary in eastern Ecuador. To get here, you take a 30-minute flight over the Andes from

Ecuadorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s capital city, Quito. Then you board a small motorized canoe for 2 { hours. Then walk 15 minutes through the rain forest. Then ride 20 more minutes in a paddle canoe across a small lake to the lodge. The huts have electricity and hot showers. But no cell phone, no TV, no Internet. Eclectic tourists from all over the world come here. It is incredibly restful, quiet, warm, rainy and damp. Your hair curls. Your skin plumps. Your clothes get moist. Your electronics need to be in Ziploc bags. When you go on a hike, you must wear big rubber boots. Paths can be gloppy with mud. There are big insects. Exotic plants. Slippery rocks. Snakes. Strange noises. Although it is exotic, La Selva is one of several surprisingly affordable ecolodges on the Napo River, and it revels in its remote location. All of these lodges are near the incredible Yasuni National Park, often regarded as the most ecologically diverse place on Earth. Ecuadorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ecolodges generally follow similar schedulesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;wake at 5:30 a.m., breakfast at 6. There are long hikes, generous meals, free time, birdviewing tower climbs, canoe tours and, if you are lucky, a chance to meet local people. The weather is generally cloudy, punctuated by short heavy downpours alternating with periods of bright sunshine. At about 80 degrees year round, it is like visiting a terrarium. It is remote. Yet it is not quiet. At night, I lie in a spartan yet comfortable bed, surrounded by mosquito netting. Outside is the croaking and chirping of

frogs, bugs, night birds, bats and other critters. A fan turns slowly in the warm room, and a small lamp provides light, but only until 11 p.m., when the electricity is turned off. One night, I suddenly jolt awake, thinking I hear a beeping alarm. It is instead a midnight insectâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s call: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Brrr! Brrr! Brrr!â&#x20AC;? Reaching for context, my city brain has connected the sound of a tiny bug in the rain forest with the most stressful symbol of modern life, the alarm clock. There are piranhas here, the sexiest and toothiest animal of the Amazon. Most of what you read about piranhas is blatant exaggeration and Hollywood hype, King says. They donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t attack peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;well, unless they are already dead or bleeding. And, well, they have been known to attack cattle. And yes, they do gnaw bones until they are bare of flesh. And, well, yes, redbellied piranhas do tend to swarm. But they certainly wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t bother swimmers, he says. I notice nobody is swimming off the dock at La Selva. When you fish for piranha, you use a regular line, hook and chunks of raw beef. They can nibble the beef off in two bites and avoid the hook, but try hard and you may entice one to chomp down a little too hard. In a lucky moment, I caught one. That fish was at least a footâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;well, 10 inches, well, 8 inchesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;long. No way was I taking the hook out, so a guide did it and opened the fishâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mouth to show the row of sharp V-shaped white teeth that looked like the business end of a

Ginsu knife. Ecuador gets about 227,000 American visitors a yearâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;many of whom rush straight to the Galapagos Islands and never see the Amazon at all. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a shame. Eastern Ecuadorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s El Oriente region is where many forces collideâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;modern oil drillers, eco-defenders, lush natural beauty, stunning animals and stubbornly traditional native people. Out here, the average tourist will not see towns because there arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t any. They also wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see the Waorani people, who shun contact with modern life. They ordinarily wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even see the more modern Quichua people, for they are spread out along the Napo, hidden. For instance, the Condo family of three generations lives together a short walk from the river, but beyond view. Their house is in a clearing. It has a wide-open platform kitchen under a thatched roof and an attached room for sleeping.

The Condos are Quichua, who are most in contact with the world. Many are naturalist guides for the ecolodges. Still, they spin their own thread, sew their own nets, weave their own baskets, cook over an open fire, wash their clothes in the river, drink rainwater and live under a thatched roof open to the elements. The children have petsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; dogs that scurry under the house, and three baby tanagers, frail chirping little black-and-white things that live in a basket. A two year old toddles around with a sharp knife and seems to know how to use it. The family buys rice, noodles and eggs but grows or forages for other food. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a hard life. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a patient life. Clothes hung on the line are left out, sometimes for days, until the sun finally comes out long enough to dry them. But it is the life they choose, despite being bombarded with dogooder organizations aim-

ing to modernize their world. The Condos live just down the river from Yasuni National Parkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s riverbank clay licks. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where thousands of parrots congregate daily to eat mineral-laden clay. They donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always show up, leaving some tourists feeling shortchanged, as if a lodge can orchestrate nature like a virtual reality concert. But weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in luck. Hundreds of green bodies stand out like florescent targets on the beige clay walls. They squawk. They flutter. They gnaw at the clay. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s happy hour at Moeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bar. Suddenly, the parrots fly away in a giant greenwinged cloud. Then it pours! The humans huddle under ponchos in an open dugout canoe. Instead of feeling anxious, I feel exhilarated. The rain pounds on my head and runs off the poncho. I clutch my camera tight in its plastic bag close to my body. I close my eyes and feel the rivulets streaming

down into my boots. Rain is what makes the Ecuadorian Amazon so grand and haunting, so lush and fragile. So you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t complain, really. This actually isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the kind of vacation where complainers belong. La Selva was started by an American couple 25 years ago. In November, it was bought by a new owner, Columbus Group, which is in the process of upgrading the property. In July, it will debut a whole new look that Columbus Group promises will still be true to its rustic roots but offer more luxurious touchesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Wi-Fi (a terrible idea in my opinion, but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s progress), newer, larger more upscale huts, new boats, new kayaks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to keep the same type of construction, but we are adding bigger cabins and more comfortable cabins,â&#x20AC;? says manager Yoyi Minaya. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are going to be the best

Walking brings visitors close to the heart of rain forest Ecuador from B19 ecolodge. We want to be more integrated with the community. The people who come, it’s a mix of everybody. We won’t change that philosophy.” It is possible to see the Amazon by boat. But staying put in one place brings one closer to the soul of the rain forest, she says. “When you stay on land, you hear the noises at night, the sound of the birds,” Minaya says. “That is the magic of the jungle—the smells, the

Galapagos Islands can ask their tour company about an add-on to the Amazon. Cost: Two people traveling together should plan to pay about $2,800$3,000 per person for a week’s trip, which includes airfare, lodging in Quito and at the lodge, meals, tranfers and tours. Lodges: La Selva Amazon Ecolodge is shut for major upgrades through June, but will reopen in July (www.laselvajunglelodge.com, 866687-3109). Or try the nearby well-regarded Sacha Lodge (www.sachalodge.

sounds of the place.” Like the motmot. And the parrots. And the rain. And the piranhas silently swarming in the deep.

IF YOU GO Booking: I recommend booking “Quito and the Amazon” through Latin Destinations (www. latindestinations.com, 866-645-2846), which can arrange your flights, hotels, transfers and tours. You also can book directly with the ecolodges, which will arrange all travel from Quito to the lodge. People traveling to the

com, 800-706-2215) or Napo Wildlife Center (www.napowildlifecenter.com, 866-750-0830). Lodges include meals and tours. Itinerary: I flew via United into Quito and stayed two nights for sightseeing, flew via AeroGal to La Selva for three nights, then returned to Quito for one night. One bonus: Ecuador is in the same time zone as Michigan. Packing: Lodges will give you packing lists. They provide rubber boots. Bring a raincoat

and a good rain poncho in case of downpours. Bring plenty of socks to wear under your boots. Pack all clothes in Ziploc bags to keep them away from the damp. Pack bug spray, sunscreen, hat, small flashlight, clock, lightweight long pants and shirts, binoculars. Health: No mandatory immunizations needed here, but be up-to-date on your booster shots. The yellow fever vaccine is recommended. Some travelers may wish to take anti-malaria pills; I did not.

He first immigrated to Canada in 1952, where he worked as a painter.

W OF PRIME INTEREST

Rain gardens assist How renovating can boost home stormwater drainage value and lower your mortgage W

CONTRIBUTED

RAIN GARDENS help make better use of rainfall that otherwise would flow away through stormwater runoff systems. Stormwater refers to rain and melted snow and ice. Stormwater runoff from your roof, driveway and other hard surfaces in your yard is typically directed towards the street and into the municipal storm sewer system. This stormwater runoff, which has picked up harmful substances such as road salt, heavy metals and oils, ends up in streams, lakes or other water bodies, where it can harm water quality and aquatic habitat. Meanwhile, water used for lawns and gardens is drawn from the local drinking water supply. There are several ways that you can reduce runoff and better use stormwater in your yard while ensuring proper drainage. One relatively easy and attractive method is a rain garden. A rain garden is a planted or stone-covered bed specifically designed to receive stormwater and allow it to be slowly absorbed into the soil (infiltration). In the natural hydrologic cycle, stormwater slowly infiltrates into the soil. There, it is naturally filtered and cleansed of some pollutants, is used by plants and replenishes the water table. Stormwater also falls directly into water bodies or gradually reaches them over land or through the shallow water table. In contrast, stormwater runoff in settled areas usually flows quickly from hard surfaces, such as roofs and driveways, into sewers that eventually empty into water bodies. The increased volume and frequency of high flows can cause erosion and related sedimentation in receiving lakes and

rivers. Along the way, the water also picks up polluting substances, such as de-icing salt, grease, oil, animal wastes, excess sediments, pesticides and fertilizers. In areas with combined storm and sanitary sewers, the system can sometimes become overloaded, so that untreated sanitary sewage overflows into natural water bodies. All of these factors can harm water quality, habitat for aquatic species and the stability of shorelines and riverbanks. They also increase municipal costs to convey and treat stormwater. There is a growing trend towards designing municipal stormwater systems to work with natural processes. These systems involve the use of wetlands and other methods that allow water to soak into the ground, filter pollutants and slow the flow of water before it enters water bodies. Rain gardens are one way that you can reduce runoff and let stormwater soak slowly into the ground in your home landscape, just as it does in nature. Rain gardens are shallow depressions or low-lying areas that are designed to capture and absorb stormwater fairly quickly and dry out between rainfalls. When planted, they can also provide habitat for birds, butterflies and other fauna. Rain gardens are relatively easy and inexpensive to design and build, but there are a few considerations to ensure that they function effectively. The two most critical technical considerations are: 1. Water must infiltrate and not stand in the bed

for more than two days. 2. Water should not create drainage problems on your property or neighbouring ones. Beyond that, rain gardens can be naturalistic or more manicured, can include a variety of plants, and can be in various shapes. Observe the drainage area and paths along which stormwater naturally runs in your yard. Place the rain garden at a low point or at a location somewhere along the natural flow path. If your yard is relatively flat and evenly drained, you can create a depression anywhere, following the guidelines below. To ensure that water will not simply run over the lower edge, rain gardens need to be as level as possible. If possible, avoid slopes greater than 12 per cent, as they will make it more difficult to create a level garden. If you have no other choice, you can cut and fill a steeper area, but you will need to ensure that the sides are adequately stabilized. To avoid creating moisture problems, you will need to direct stormwater away from vulnerable areas, such as your house foundation, septic beds or neighbouring homes. Along with catching water from other areas in your yard, rain gardens are often designed to capture roof runoff via a downspout extension, a swale or an underground pipe. If you want your rain garden to capture roof runoff, look for a convenient location. Locating your rain garden in full sun or partial shade will let you choose the widest selection of plants.

ith the popularity of home-decorating shows like Trading Places soaring, suddenly everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an interior design expert. But from a real expertâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s point of view, how can a homeownerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s renovation dollars be best spent? Kitchens and bathrooms are the best place to start with a recovery rate of between 75 and 100 per cent. The recovery rate is the likely increase in a homeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s resale value that could be attributed to a renovation. Kitchens and bathrooms are the first places prospective buyers look at, so any renovation or updating in those areas makes the home that much more attractive to buy. Less work to be done when the new buyer moves in. Landscaping vies for the top renovation spending area as well. If you can wow potential buyers with some curb appeal combined with an upgraded kitchen and/or bathrooms, then selling your house is that much easier. When it comes to renovating older homes,updating wiring and plumbing is also a definite bonus. Renovations that add features to a home that others in the neighbourhood already have, such as a second bathroom, have higher recovery rates than features not shared by adjacent properties. Energy-efficient upgrades are another popular focus for renovations, with an average recovery rate

SHOWCASE W LANDSCAPING

Cavalcade of Choose the best fence for your yard showhomes at The Lakes Defining the limits of your property is important for a variety of reasons, including privacy, security and safety. “Ultimately, the fence has to fit with how you use your yard,” says Margie Spence, a broker with Royal LePage in St. Catharines, Ont. “The challenge comes in finding something that is both functional and aesthetically pleasing.” Spence recommends reviewing these three scenarios to determine where your fencing needs may fit:

PRIVACY. If you are looking to create more privacy for your home, solid wood fences are a good option. Most fences built for privacy stand about six feet high. They are available in varieties of wood types, with cedar and spruce being the most popular. Lattice-tops can add

you put up around your property is critical to the overall landscaped yard design. CONTRIBUTOR

SAFETY For backyards with pools, a fence with limited horizontal rails is recommended. This will ward off trespassers from using the fence as a ladder to get into the pool area. Also, a gate with a spring latch is a bylaw requirement in most municipalities. Black aluminum fencing is typically produced with vertical spindles, often emulating wrought iron design, and provides good sight lines for pool areas.

strong, reliable, and affordable. Whether you have a dog that jumps or one that digs, chain-link fences can be built to suit the needs of your pet. Although it is one of the less aesthetically appealing options, chainlink fencing lends to safety and won’t break your budget. Whether you are looking to create your own private oasis or add more security and safety to your home, there is a fence for you. More information, including homeowner tips, is available online at www.royallepage.ca.

Intuitive high-tech gadgets simplify our world Our tech-driven world has transformed the way we interact with each other and the tools we use to function day-to-day. While home devices are designed to make life easier, those less comfortable with gadgets face increasing pressure to plug in. “Luckily for us, the devices we use on a daily basis are becoming more intuitive,” says tech expert Marc Saltzman. “Smart solutions for the home are now incorporating motion-

sensing, voice control, and tablet and touchscreen technologies, allowing increased functionality and accessibility for users of all ages and experience levels.” From families with children, to the elderly, or individuals with physical limitations, there are numerous ways to incorporate technology in your home. Look for truly intuitive home technology that makes life more convenient: • Enhanced home security systems allow users to control lights,

locks and temperature using mobile devices they’re already familiar with—ensuring safety, control and security for homeowners. • Hands-free faucets make washing up fun for kids and easy for the elderly. Take a look at the website deltafaucet.ca for ideas. Popular lavatory faucets called Addison and Lahara have what they call Touch2O.xt Technology. These faucets can be activated by simply tapping anywhere on the handle or spout, or by entering one’s hands into the sens-

ing range. • Voice control and motion command functions means less fiddling with buttons. Look for home video gaming systems that allow users to control media players and participate in games by speaking or making subtle movements. • Set it and forget it with gadgets that let you pre-program different functionalities. Robotic vacuum cleaners can be programmed to do the work for you, making cleaning a breeze.

One community in Lake Country will be bustling this weekend as seven development partners come together to host the Spring Parade of Homes at The Lakes. This inaugural event runs Saturday, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., and will include great events at each of the beautiful show homes and a chance to win great prizes. Seven showhomes are participating in the tour, which will showcase the variety of neighbourhoods, building opportunities, available developers and the community partners that make up The Lakes housing development. Each showhome will host its own activity to add to the excitement of the weekend. Every home you tour earns you another entry into our draw for prizes valued at over $4,000. The Property Source Group, your “Lakes” realtors, will provide refreshments and an art exhibit with renowned local artists at The Lakes Sales Centre, where you can also review the master plan of The Lakes Development, a contemporary community straddling a natural plateau above the shores of Wood Lake and Lake Okanagan, in the heart of Lake Country. Enjoy lunch off the barbecue at Cadence at The Lakes and tour one of two rancher-style showhomes. As a bare-land strata neighbourhood, Cadence offers maintenance-free living with fully landscaped yards, geothermal heating/cooling and resort style amenities. Head over to Crystal Heights and tour the inspired collection of semi-detached townhomes in this familyfriendly community. These well-spaced two- and three-storey Craftsman homes provide the perfect background to enjoy a classic wine and cheese spread. Make your next stop the Built-Rite Homes showhome and try Lake Country’s own Jimmy’s Mobile Woodfire baked pizza. A certified BuiltGreen and Energy Star builder, Built-Rite Homes was the first builder to break ground in The Lakes development. The public can also check out five restored classic cars, including a 1957 Chevy Belair convertible, when you visit the 2011 multiple gold Tommie award winning show home of family run Destination Homes. Finally, refreshments will be served at the showhomes of two other building partners at The Lakes—McBratney Homes and Noba Vision, both long-time community partners of The Lakes. Most showhomes at The Lakes are open daily for viewing. For directions to The Lakes and to the showhome map, visit the website ParadeOfHomes.ca.
