s the organic, 100-mile, real food movement really a revolution in food? Do we really need to pay extra for organic greens and peach compote? Simple, cheap and in ridiculous abundance, the local food supply is ready for the picking, without an inconvenient trip to the convenience store. Now a handful of volunteers want to take that food and help people who need it share in the cornucopia of the Okanagan. See story A3

CLOSE-UP

Harvesting a juicy idea Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

T

here’s a group of young professionals in Kelowna with a fantastic idea: Why not feed people in need with the food going to waste on local fruit trees? It’s not their idea, per se. Across North America, what’s termed “gleaning” projects are helping non-profit organizations feed the homeless, supply food to children’s programs and re-introduce the convenience-food addicted masses to a healthier lifestyle. In the South Okanagan, for instance, the Christian-based Okanagan Gleaner’s Society harvests surplus produce to make dried soups for developing nations; it has been doing so for 20 years. And on Vancouver Island, Nanaimo Community Gardens spearheads a project that’s seen 72,000 pounds of produce gleaned to provide 14 agencies with fresh food in just nine years. Yet here in the Central Okanagan, where tree fruits are so plentiful vast amounts of apples and pears, apricots and peaches become hazardous bear-attracting, insectfeeding beacons, an organized effort to redistribute this free food source has gone largely untouched. “We just heard a tre-

DOUG FARROW/CONTRIBUTOR

CENTRAL OKANAGAN Food Policy Council volunteers Christina Grieve, Laura Hsu, Alisa Senecal and Casey Hamilton want a few local fruit tree owners to sink their teeth into a new gleaning project. They’re asking fruit tree owners who can’t pick all their fruit to offer it up for free. Participants will be given a share of the pickings and know the fruits of their donation will help feed Central Okanagan residents in need. mendous amount of feedback on how the Okanagan really needs to have a gleaning program because we do have all this fruit,” said Casey Hamilton, chairwoman of the Central Okanagan Food Policy Council. A UBCO student and local orchardist’s son, Raja Wariach, had tried to get the ball rolling by producing an interesting website, Glean Canada, offering an online registry for orchardists to register their excesses for harvest;

but it hasn’t taken off. The Kelowna Community Food Bank runs a Plant a Row, Grow a Row program so anyone can grow for the food bank, and keep some for themselves in the process. But an organized volunteer network of gleaners prepared to put in the time to harvest and process the abundance of fruit growing on hobby farms and in local backyards—and take a little free food home for their own pantry—had yet to

materialize. The food council wants to make it happen this summer. Putting out posters for a picnic information session this Sunday, they’ve already got a decent network of volunteer gleaners willing to help. Now what they need is fruit tree owners to offer a place to start. “We figure the first fruit to go will be apricots, but we’re open to everything,” said Laura Hsu, a food council volunteer.

ANNIVERSARY sales event

With at least 20 people involved, it’s hoped the Central Okanagan Tree Fruit Project will draw pears and apples into the mix before fall to provide free produce for the Kelowna Community Food Bank and other charities like the Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs, Kelowna Gospel Mission and Karis Support Society. And they’re also hoping to generate sustainable funding to continue the project. Getting the program

up and running is going to take supplies, a while they’re looking at donations, the food council is also considering ways to generate a little money on the side with options like canning and jamming products they can sell as a fundraiser. A quick look at their Facebook Page shows the group is young, ambitious and connected to a wider network of similarly upwardly mobile trendsetters who’ve taken an interest in sustainabil-

ity, food security, urban farming, 100-mile diets and global environmental movements largely associated with the upper middle class. “It’s a demographic shift in food,” explained Patricia Guest, one of the Okanagan’s organic pioneers. The one-time owner of My Country Garden, at Benvoulin and KLO, Guest trained as a chef in Vancouver and watched the organic movement burgeon in the metropolis before moving into growing herself. The return to organic and local foods among the middle class was entirely predictable given the health benefits of eating local, and the demand over-processing, mass produced food puts on the earth’s resources, Guest figures. In the 1950s and ’60s, only the poor would consider growing and canning their own food, while the rich were stocking up on white bread and Cheese Whiz, the very processed foods the rich now strive to eradicate. But by the early ’90s, when she arrived in the Okanagan, Guest was watching Dona Denison, of Little Creek Salad Dressings, and her husband Dale Ziech, start producing “gourmet” locally-grown organic produce and value-added

CLOSE-UP ▼ WASTE NOT, WANT NOT

Enjoying the flavours of fresh foods toppings. Joe and Jessica Klein, of The Homestead Organic Farm, then started the wildly successful Penticton Farmers’ Market, selling the healthy, pesticidefree message. John and Sher Alcock created Sunshine Farms, producing organic fruits, vegetables and seeds intended to protect genetic diversity from an increasingly genetically modified, monocrop-based food supply. Only a few restaurants, in particular chef Rod Butters (RauDZ), were buying from these organic producers. Grocers wanted Guest to pick her produce while it was so green she was embarrassed to let people know it came from her farm. But realizing good health comes with local and environmentally sustainable products, the wealthy and educated are returning to locally produced foods, Guest said. And they’re bringing a new community-minded focus to the table. Last week, Guest taught a canning workshop to the Kelowna Community Kitchen crew, an ad hoc group on Facebook that meets monthly to produce healthy food in a collaborative environment that cuts costs and reduces the load on individual cooks. The Kitchen’s demographic is far younger than one might figure a community canning workshop would attract were it scheduled even 10 years ago—and yet she had 14 participants. “It’s become a popular way to save money and preserve the flavours of the season,” said Elana

it’s

Westers, a 30-something cook and sustainability expert who runs her own business, Sustainworks (soon to be renamed Growing Inspired). Like Guest, who teaches regular canning workshops, Westers has run a handful of canning cook-offs through the city’s recreation programs, teaching waterbath methods and the intricacies of pectin and flavour mixing to a generation who might not have even see their mothers canning. “I highlight recipes that are flavourful,” she said. “People really want to enjoy the flavours of fresh foods and if you add a lot of sugar, you end up giving it away.” She teaches her participants to use fruit juice and calcium pectin to reduce sugar content and

focuses on including interesting herbs and fruit combinations that can stand on their own, without the extra sweetener. The workshops are popular and build on a trend that’s seen the Central Okanagan Community Garden’s popularity explode in recent years. This new civic-minded foodie crowd is keen for solutions that protect the earth, their own families and build strong local networks—both socially and on the food security front. It’s the very definition of the Central Okanagan Fruit Tree Project. When their Pick-nic is held this Sunday, the volunteer directors will explain that in exchange for offering picking services, or fruit trees to be picked, those who choose to participate will be contrib-

uting to that community building effort, preventing food from going to waste and will earn some healthy, locallygrown free food for their own pantry. The Pick-nic Info Session runs Sunday, June 17, from noon to 2 p.m., at Sutton Glen Park next to the community garden, 464 Sutton Cres. in Glenmore. Participants are asked to bring some food to share. To register a fruit tree, sign up as a volunteer or find more information, Laura Hsu can be contacted at 778-2145664 or email cofruittreeproject@gmail.com.

a vulnerable position,” he said. Although his past words may have been tainted by emotion, Henderson was steadfast in his current recollection of the facts. Under Crown counsel Duncan Campbell’s questioning, Henderson recalled that Shannon and several other friends showed up at the party uninvited—although they did know one house guest—and managed to get into trouble shortly after they arrived. A teenager named Parker Burrows and one of Shannon’s friends had got into a scuffle, and Shannon had interceded, said Henderson. “Shannon came up against the fridge and held a gun against Parker Burrow’s head,” he said. The gun was being held horizontally toward Burrows, while Shannon’s left hand was on Burrows’ chest. Once that confrontation stopped just before 1 a.m., the party moved to the driveway as Shannon’s

Thursday. Referring to the gun Shannon pulled out at the party, Wilkes had told the Courier: “Everyone thought it was a pellet gun…we all tell him to leave.” “Did you believe it was a pellet gun?” said Bagnall, pointing out that Henderson testified Thursday that he recognized the weapon to be real. “No sir,” said Henderson. Bagnall then read more from the 2007 story: “(Shannon) knew what he was a going to do, it was total intent.” This week Henderson claimed no insight into Shannon’s actions, and explained his past words as a product of the feelings sparked by losing a friend. “I was pretty angry at the time,” he said. He also pointed out that he didn’t remember doing the newspaper interview at all, nor could he attest to the veracity of the report. “I was pretty angry at the time, the questions could have been taken out of context…and I was in

so you can just imagine the planning and people power that goes into pulling it all together. “That’s where the volunteers play such an important role and make the magic happen.” Volunteers assist with such tasks as traffic management around the event site, festival set-up and tear-down, staffing information booths, collecting donations, and helping mover performers between the stages. As a token of appreciation, volunteers will receive an event T-shirt, as well as refreshments while on-site. “If you have a few hours to spare on Canada Day and want to help out, we are requesting people sign up for a four-hour shift,” Mills said. “The earlier you contact us, the better your chance to pick from a preferred task,” said Mills. Interested volunteers should contact Cassandra West, volunteer coordinator, via email at CanadaDayVolunteerKelowna2012@gmail.com.

group were ousted. From afar, Henderson said he remembers seeing Wilkes, his friend, standing outside by the entry way to the courtyard. He couldn’t hear anything being said, but he did see Shannon appear from the darkness, “briefly, quick in front of (Wilkes).” He then retreated into the kitchen, having decided that earlier gunplay had shown the party had gone out of control and it was time to call 911. That’s when he heard a “big, loud boom.” “Just as I was grabbing the phone, I turned around and looked outside and (Wilkes) was just ly-

ing there,” he said. He went outside and saw Shannon standing there “yelling for friends” who had already sped away in their own vehicle, he said, leaving Shannon behind. Shannon started “speed walking” away, as Henderson said he and another person followed in pursuit. “I was frantic, my instincts took over and I didn’t want him to get away,” he said. Shannon acknowledged he was being trailed, and turned around and held a gun toward the pair. “How did that make you feel?” asked Campbell. “Not good,” said Henderson, describing Shan-

non’s face as “straight” and emotionless. As the pursuit happened, police came upon the scene. First to arrive was Const. Heaton, who arrived to chaos. “There were several people in the middle of the road,” she said. “Girls were crying, guys were trying to comfort them and pointing to the area on the street.” She followed their direction and came upon Wilkes, who was lying alone less than a foot away from the house’s garage, with a towel wrapped around his head. “He started begging me to help him,” she said, noting the towel was bloody.

“He said, ‘Please help me, don’t let me die,’” she said. Heaton said she pulled back the towel and saw there was a hole in the side of the teenager’s head and a “wound track” along his head. She then turned him onto his side, to make sure his airway remained clear. He vomited once, and the smell of alcohol was “very evident” there and from his breath. Paramedics arrived on the scene within 15 minutes. Wilkes was transported to the hospital and died from his injuries later that night. Further witness testimony is scheduled to continue next week.

Dogs add joy to owners’ lives, money to city’s coffers

To the editor: This letter is to the thousands of Kelowna dog owners who pick up after their dogs. (Re: Clean Up After Your Dogs, June 12 Capital News.) In 2008, the number of dogs living in Kelowna was estimated to be over 39,000. That number is probably higher now. Most dogs have at least two people whose home they share. That suggests there are likely more than 80,000 people who can say that they have a dog in the family. Dogs in Kelowna have a significant positive economic impact in the city. We take our dogs to veterinarians, groomers, trainers, boarding kennels, pet sitters and pet supply stores where we can also purchase biodegradable poop bags. People with dogs also lead happier, healthier, longer lives and are less likely to depend

Plenty of opportunities to learn a skilled trade

L

ast week I wrote about the 1000 Women of Brazil project which is helping women enter skills training programs to move into higher paying jobs. In Canada we have similar programs such as the Women’s Trade Training Program offered at the Penticton, Kelowna and Vernon campuses of Okanagan College which has now helped more than 350 women. This program provides funding and support to under-skilled and unemployed women to help them move into skills training. But you don’t have to be female to get help with retraining. Since 2008 the federal government and the Province of B.C. have provid-

ed funding through the Labour Market Agreement (LMA) to improve the quality of our labour pool. This project helps those who are unemJane ployed but not eligiMuskens ble for Employment Insurance (EI) benefits or those who are employed but low-skilled (usually without a high school diploma or some other certification) upgrade their skills and in turn earn a higher wage. Alongside this program is the Strategic Training and Transition fund (STTF) which supports sectors, occupations and communities. This program is much broader than the LMA as it provides funding and help to both employed and unemployed individuals regardless of whether or

not they a collecting EI. It targets those who are impacted by an economic downturn such as the closure of a mill. Through both of these programs a number of funded services were created. These include employment services such as helping workers in resume writing, job interview assistance and other assistance, and programs that provide direct skills development and upgrading interventions. This is what Okanagan College’s Women in Trades Training Program falls under. Other examples of programs include an Aboriginal Apprenticeship strategy, the Employment Skills Access program, Flexible Learning in the Trades and Trades Training for Immigrants. In their 2010/11 Performance Outcome Report issued by both levels of government, there were 8,709 workers who participated in the LMA programs

and another 27,092 who enrolled in a program through the STTF. Through the LMA fund 4,736 of the participants entered a program that provided both skills development and work experience. This number would include the Women in Trades Training Program. Women accounted for 40.3 per cent of those who participated with youth workers (individuals under 30 years of age) coming in number two at 36.7 per cent. Of those who participated 59.1 per cent had either a high school diploma or less and most of the participants were unemployed (66.4 per cent). Of those who completed the programs (over 85 per cent) many either transitioned into further training, returned to the same job they had before they started the program, or found

A Gift in Memory Wayward RCMP seem protected by the force Makes a Difference Re: Our View: Another Bad Move for RCMP and Sound Off poll: Do you think it was a bad decision to transfer an RCMP officer who abused his position in Edmonton and was reprimanded with a demotion to B.C.? June 5 Capital News.

To the editor: Of course the public is, and should be, outraged over the RCMP decision to ship Don Ray, the Mountie who disgraced the force with his actions, to B.C. I’m thinking that there is a disproportionate amount of protection

for the officers as opposed to protection of the public provided in our current legislation. Changes, as promised by the new RCMP top cop, would certainly be welcome but I’m not convinced this will happen in any way we know is needed, or in any timely fashion—sadly.

The other part of that editorial reminds us of the Mountie who left the scene of a fatal accident and “fortified himself with vodka”. What proof is there that he fortified himself after the fact and was not intoxicated at the time of the fatality? I for one don’t think a pub-

lic citizen found in similar circumstances would ever have his word for it taken as fact. The media appears all too ready to accept whatever the police version of a story is, without question. That is disturbing. Donna Campbell, West Kelowna

▼ FAITH

Ours the only hands God has to work with

To the editor: Powerfully insightful and inspiring was Rev. Dr. Linda Horton’s Soul Searching faith column of May 22. Throughout, Horton, of Unitarian Fellowship of Kelowna, ever so blessedly echoed its headline: The Power of Prayer is More Than Just Trying to Talk to God. As she astutely penned, we are to “engage our hands in building a more just and compassionate world” (and that, I add, includes Kelowna). Horton’s words especially resonated because of what had graced my heart, mind, eyes, and ears earlier that day and on the Sunday two days earlier. The writer of the daily rthought for May 22 in the The Friendship Book of 2012 noted renowned U.S. businessfman Roger Babson’s declaration: “The greatest undeveloped resource of our country is faith; the greatest unused power is prayer.” To which the thought writer added: “A thought that’s surely as applicable today as it ever was, tno matter which country we call home.” Similarly, building upon faith, prayer, and the God-given potential within each of us, guest speaker Ed Weiss, addressing Trinity Baptist Church services May 20, reeled off striking life stories of people who had, in Horton’s words, recognized both “service as a spiritual discipline” and “a form of prayrer—an activity that connects us to deep roots of wholeness, meaning and creativity…that

flows from and strengthens our sense of interrelatedness with all beings.” Or as phrased by Weiss, youth pastor and youth counsellor at The House, a Christian ministry next to the UBC Okanagan campus, there “is a persistent itch” in each of us to make our lives meaningful by activating that inner spark and developing our potential. Weiss’s point was emphatically dramatized in his life-journey stories of a one-time prized NHL prospect fictitiously identified as Walter and Mother Teresa. In prefacing their stories by way of illustration, he first told of a little boy’s amazed wonder at the completed product of a sculptor whom he initially saw chipping into a stone slab. The boy asked how he had seen a magnificent lion in the stone, and the sculptor replied that he had first pictured the lion in his heart. Likewise, so much like God sees us, whether unbroken or broken in body and spirit—which Weiss so touchingly related in the case of 19-year-old “Walter” who, shortly before his first NHL training camp, broke his neck in a swimming mishap, becoming a quadriplegic. Long mired in misery, that “persistent itch” in this once-robust potential superstar, now Canada’s longest-living quadriplegic, grew so that today he is in Vancouver working with and fuelling hope in other disabled spinal cord victims. So, also, out of misfortune and even tragedy can emerge brilliant life missions, like

that of Mother Teresa, whom, Weiss pointed out, had been “transitioning” from being a teacher to a missionary when first encountering the starving and dying in the streets of Calcutta, India. One day, amid the squalor, Mother Teresa came upon a woman who had crawled who knows how far to deposit herself on the grass near a shiny, new hospital. Chunks of her toes and feet had be nibbled off by rats. Mother Teresa carried her into the hospital, refused to be deterred by an angry nurse demanding Mother Teresa to return “that diseased thing” outside. Two hours later, the woman died in a hospital bed, prompting the irate nurse to sneer that a bed had been occupied for two hours to accomplish what good purpose? To which the saintly nun replied, “It’s true she lived like an animal, but she died like a human being!” And, from those words was born the statement of Mother Teresa’s lifetime mission— caring for the dying. Words reflective, as well, of columnist Horton’s words that: “…the only hands that God has are ours. Ours are the hands that feed a child, that embrace the grieving, that give shape to community.” Imagine the world that could be sculpted if all nations, faiths, and peoples employed their hands and hearts on behalf of each other! Wally Dennison, Kelowna

Responsible owner offended at dog poop ‘rant’ Dogs from A8 on health care. The Queen is said to enjoy the company of a handful of palace Corgis. A majority of hotels in and around Kelowna also recognize the value of dogs to tourism. All segments of society have bad apples, and the dog community has its share of them. While few people would write a letter to the editor about fast-food container trash, dog poop will inspire them to angry rants.

The Kelowna Dog Association, which was formed less than a year ago, is working hard to educate the irresponsible people who do not pick up. So far, with the help of a handful of Kelowna businesses, we have been able to purchase 15,000 doggy bags that are 100 per cent degradable. As that is all our young association can afford, we elected to fill dog-bag dispensers in parks that are popular with visitors, like the lake promenade stretching from the bridge to the Rotary Marshes.

Upgrade skills for a better job Muskens from A8 a new job—this accounted for 61.8 per cent of the group. Of the 27,092 people who entered into one of the STTF programs, 13,752 of these enrolled in a Workplace Training for Innovation Pilot program which gives employers funding to provide employee training with a goal to improve

such things as productivity, introducing new technology, equipment etc. Another 9,413 participants took the BC Employment program which helps unemployed people build the skills they need to find employment such as job searches. In the outcomes report, 3,223 individuals from the Thompson Okanagan have participated in either an LMA

or STTF program. Currently through LMA and the ITA (Industry Training Authority) Okanagan College is trying to help individuals enter into trades training.

providing biodegradable bags in all of Kelowna’s dog parks. To date this year, he has purchased more than 150,000 bags at his own expense. His generosity has resulted in cleaner dog parks and perhaps more people learning to purchase their own supply of bags. While there is no excuse for not picking up after one’s dog, neither is there an excuse for being rude to thousands of responsible dog guardians in Kelowna. Helen Schiele, Kelowna

Walmart host fundraiser for Special Olympians Anyone interested in taking an icy dip for a good cause is invited to Kelowna’s Wal Mart parking lot this weekend. That’s where the eighth annual Freeze the Fuzz—previously called Free the Fuzz—will be taking place. The event is held to help local Mounties to drum up funds to support the area’s Special Olympic Athletes, and last year raised a whopping $16,000, as officers and the public took an icy dip after donations valued over $50 were kicked in, said Const. Steve Holmes.

READY TO Freeze The Fuzz on Saturday are (from left) Kelowna RCMP Const. Kris Clark, Const. Steve Holmes, Special Olympian Amber Forsyth and Dave Gibson.

“There’s a lot happening on both days,� he said. “We have barbecues, clowns, face painters, and some talented tribute musicians.� There will even be a few NHL stars there Saturday, to create more of a stir. NHL players Vern Fiddler, Shea Webber, Josh Gorges and Blake Comeau are expected to make an appearance Saturday at 11:30 a.m. The fundraiser has been held in support of the Law Enforcement Torch Run, which raises funds to support B.C. Special Olympics.

Bicycles for Humanity event rescheduled

The Bicycles for Humanity organization offers its apologies to anyone who braved the chilly rain and turned up last Saturday for a yard sale, bicycle collection, silent auction and a planned barbecue. The event has been rescheduled for 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. this Saturday, June 16, at St. Charles Garnier Church, 3645 Benvoulin Rd. The bicycle collection will take place this Saturday regardless of weather conditions. The group plans to send 40-foot shipping containers with up to 500 bikes to nurses, students and rural workers in Ghana. Anyone with a working adult bike that is not being used can donate it at the church.

CORD board wants project planning process respected have shown more than 50 per cent positive response to the idea of developing a year-round resort on Kelowna Mountain,” Boccio said outside Thursday’s board meeting. Boccio insinuated that could be the basis for a lawsuit, but cautioned that he didn’t speak for Consiglio, just as one of many investors in the project. “Certainly, a legal option is one the investors will consider when we get together to talk about what

we do next,” Boccio said. In the meeting, both regional board directors Andre Blanleil and Patty Hanson voted against the OCP, saying it was not favourable to future commercial growth in the rural area, which could make it more difficult for the Kelowna Mountain project to get approval. But the other directors voted in favour of the OCP, citing the balance between the need to have a plan in place for future

development in the South Slopes area, and the study designation allowing the Kelowna Mountain project to continue with its planning process. Board chairman Robert Hobson said as with other Upper Mission residential developments in the south end of Kelowna, there needs to be a neighbourhood plan in place and rezoning application process that address service, water and transportation access issues, as well

public hearing, saying he would not be bullyed into making a decision despite the organized pro-Kelowna Mountain crowd. Boccio slammed Basran’s response outside the meeting, saying Basran was clearly caught off guard by the level of public support for the project. “He should not have felt he was being bullyed. It just showed his lack of ability to listen,” Boccio contended.

as the impact on neighbouring Kelowna. Hobson cited the recent approval of a commercial retail development in The Ponds, an Upper Mission residential area, which had the cooperation of several land owners and city planners to finalize a plan as a clear illustration of how the process should work. Board director Colin Basran, a Kelowna city councillor, also voiced his objections about the

Investors in the Kelowna Mountain development proposal are disappointed by the Central Okanagan Regional District board’s approval of the South Slopes Official Community Plan bylaw Thursday. But while one investor, Michael Boccio from New York City, was commenting on several options, ranging from filing a negligence lawsuit against CORD to applying to the province for a special self-governing resort status, the key person behind the development, landowner Michael Consiglio was nowhere to be found. Consiglio’s lawyer was at the meeting but refused to make any comment without first informing his client of the board’s decision. For his part, Boccio was disappointed that the board opted not to endorse their ambitious de-

velopment proposal in the OCP bylaw. Instead, the board recognized Kelowna Mountain as a Recreation Resort Study Area, meaning the Kelowna Mountain project will be reviewed on its merits as more specific information is presented as to how exactly Consiglio will adapt his project plans to the existing land base. That means addressing such issues as neighbourhood planning, water, road access, other service requirements and the impact on the neighbouring City of Kelowna. Boccio argued that despite not submitting a completed rezoning application to address those issues, the board should have adopted the project both on “good faith” and the positive response to surveys about their concept and the positive response voiced at the OCP public hearing last month. “One person spoke against our proposal at the public hearing and surveys

sound was, because normally you would not hear the sound of huge rocks hitting each other unless big earth-moving equipment was at work. But, this wasn’t heavy machinery moving these boulders, it was the force of the water which had risen in the river that is mis-named Mission Creek, until it was spilling over its banks and into the undergrowth on either side. And, this was upstream from where a number of normallysmall creeks would enter Mission Creek and add even more force and quantity of water to the flows in what is normally a fairly placid body of water.

TRAIL MIX

Judie Steeves But, heavy rains and melting snow have swollen the creek in the past week until it reached what is believed to be record high flows over the past weekend, and even though the creek’s level has dropped, there’s no end in sight. More rain and showers are forecast for the weekend, and there’s still lots of snow at high elevations around the valley which has still to melt

and run off into Okanagan Lake. And, the lake is expected to rise higher than its target level this year, although perhaps not as high as last year, which will mean localized flooding from that source as well. Late Wednesday, the bridge over KLO Creek carrying McCulloch Road was closed because of damage to one of its abutments, and that has inconvenienced not only the residents who live beyond that bridge, but also everyone wishing to reach Myra Canyon from the Myra end.

ada Trail through the canyon this weekend, and they will now have to use the longer route in, up June Springs Road to Little White Forest Service Road, and into the canyon through the old Ruth Station. Luckily, board member Ken Campbell was up there Thursday and said highways crews were grading the Little White Forest Service Road so it shouldn’t be in bad shape for those wishing to access the canyon, until the Myra Forest Service Road is again accessible from Kelowna. The society held its annual general meeting recently, and Campbell says it was well-attended and resulted in some new volunteers, which will be helpful when it comes to the maintenance work that needs to be done on the trail. All the board members were re-elected by acclamation, including Denis Davis as president, Vern Merwin as vicepresident, Maury Williams as secretary and Karen Merwin as treasurer. The Friends of Fintry also held their annual general meeting last weekend, and added five new directors to their board: Sandy and Duncan Anderson, Gretchen Aird Dawson and Linda and Maury Williams. Michael Berry will remain as president with Michael Recknell as vicepresident. *** Earlier this year, the Friends of the South Slopes also held their annual general meeting, electing Al Bischoff president, Isabel Pritchard vice-president, Pete Spencer treasurer and Penny Gubbels secretary. Other board members elected were Vivien Blair, Jessica Hobden, Andrew McIntosh, Teresa MacKenzie, Marty Stephan, Marilyn Westlake, Brad Wright and Moshe Yarosky. All these groups and many others working on outdoors projects in the Central Okanagan welcome new blood, so don’t hesitate to track down their websites, or contact one of these people to find out how you can help.

UPCOMING Volunteers with the Oceola Fish and Game club welcome everyone interested in helping out this Saturday with a reclamation project along

Winfield Creek near Wood Lake Elementary School. Meet at the dog park on Woodsdale Road just west of the Greek House Restaurant at 9 a.m. with work gloves, wire/bolt cutters and shovels if you can. *** Remember that the Okanagan Trail Riders Association is holding a Ride for Dad on the Bear Creek Off-Highway Vehicle trails Sunday, June 24. OTRA president Carol Boyd reports that the new Bear Creek Day Passes, required for trail users, are available at the Aspen Trailhead on weekends as well as online at www.okanagantrailriders.com/members/ as well as at: M&M Performance Banner Recreation, Innovative Motorsports Kelowna Yamaha, Valley Moto Sport in West Kelowna and Kelowna, and Kelowna Honda Powerhouse. The OTRA is looking for volunteers willing to work on expanding the trail system and is also hiring trail crew workers. There’s a training session for volunteers Saturday at 9:30 a.m. Meet at the Aspen Trailhead. Contact Carol if you can make it at: carol.boyd@okanagantrailriders.com *** The Peachland Sportsman’s Association has organized a fishing derby for youngsters at Shannon Lake in West Kelowna for Saturday, June 16, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Rods, bait and tackle will be supplied, but if you have your own rod, bring it along. There’ll be a barbecue and prizes. No fishing license is required during the Family Fishing Weekend to encourage families to get outdoors and enjoy local lakes. Fishing regulations must still be followed, even though a license is not required. *** Members of the Lonely Loon Fly Fishers are also holding an event for youngsters and their families at Bear Lake, also known as Lambly Lake, west of West Kelowna, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Sunday, June 17, with gear, tips and barbecued goodies available. So, dress for the weather and get out and enjoy the outdoors. Judie Steeves writes about outdoors issues for the Capital News. jsteeves@kelownacapnews.com

With a location, a schedule and a budget planned out, the District of Peachland is looking for local input to help create the design for a new skate park. An open house and information session will take place at Peachland Community Centre on June 20, from 6 to 8:30 p.m. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There has been a decision that the skate park will be installed in Lambley Park, so thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be information about how that selection process came about,â&#x20AC;? said Cheryl Weibe, director of communication services for the District of Peachland. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also going to be a public consultation portion. The purpose of it is really about design; however, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not limiting it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If people have comments or things that they feel we need to know, we certainly will accept feedback on those things as well.â&#x20AC;? The district completed its Recreation Master Plan in 2009. Although a skate park was not identified as a top priority, it was one of the top choices from the community in terms of additional amenities. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had two presentations this year to council, one by a group of students from Mount Boucherie Senior Secondary and one from a group of students at Peachland Elementary School. The skate park came out in those discussions.â&#x20AC;? Construction on the 5,000-square-foot park is planned to begin this fall; the grand opening of the facility is scheduled for the summer of 2013. The area will accommodate skateboards, in-line skates and BMX bikes. The project is being funded entirely from the community amenities fund, which is money provided by the development community to make improvements in public services. According to Mayor Keith Fielding, a committee is being assembled to help with the design process. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In order to ensure the new skate park will be built with our local youth and residents in mind, we are recruiting a committee of interested youth and community members to work directly with New Line Skateparks Inc. and district staff on the design,â&#x20AC;? said Fielding. Those who are interested in being on the skate park advisory committee can send their contact information to projects@peachland.ca or call 250-767-2133 for more information.

Endurance motorcycle ride to fight ALS Kevin Parnell STAFF REPORTER

Kelowna businessman Hal Spelliscy has a long history with ALS, the disease also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. Spelliscy’s sister is Canada’s longest survivor of the disease, having lived for some 23 years with the affliction that takes away the brain’s ability to send messages to the muscles. Unfortunately she is a rarity as 80 per cent of ALS patients pass away within three to five years of their diagnosis. So when Spelliscy started thinking of a way to raise funds and awareness about the disease, he kept coming back to his passion for motorcycling on the open roads as a perfect fit. Last weekend, Spelliscy and two friends completed the 2012 Iron Ride for ALS, motorbiking from Halifax to Vancouver in less than 90 hours. “This idea came about last fall and it was one that just kept coming back,” said Spelliscy, back in Ke-

lowna this week. “The idea was to take something we love to do and do something for people we love. Motorcycling is one of those sports that gives us more back than we put into it, where ALS is something that takes away everything without asking. It’s one of the nastiest afflictions I’ve ever come across.” Spelliscy and his riding partners Blane Despres, of Kelowna, and Kevin Mason, of Gibsons, left Halifax early June 4 and arrived in Vancouver June 7 around dinnertime, completing the 6,378 kilometre ride in 89 hours and 50 minutes. More importantly, the trio raised over $31,000 for the ALS Centre at GF Strong Rehabilitation Centre in Vancouver. Along the way friends and family were tracking them through Facebook and Twitter and Spelliscy even conducted media interviews over his handsfree set up on his motorbike. Racing against a 90 hour time limit estab-

lished by the Iron Butt Association that would make the trip a Trans Canada certified ride, Spelliscy and his friends had a problem free trip. Until that is they reached the prairies and Mother Nature decided to challenge them. They were on the fringe of a storm cell in Alberta that brought tornado warnings and icy northern winds and nearly resulted in hypothermia for the riders. A mudslide closed their planned route through Golden and snow made passes to the south impassable so it was off to the Alberta ice fields through Jasper and onto Clearwater and Kamloops. Heading over the Coquihalla temperatures plummeted to about two degrees above freezing. Once over the pass, heavy rains set in making visibility almost non-

existent. Finally, it was into Richmond with less than an hour to spare and their friends and family waiting. “It sure made us earn it on that last day,” said Spelliscy. “Up to that point we had some issues with pace and having to drive longer into the night which put us at risk of wildlife and truck traffic. “But not until we hit Saskatchewan and Alberta did the weather make an impact. At our last stop we were chuckling at the different kinds of weather we had seen. It had thrown it all at us but each time we were able to make it.” The ride may be completed but the donations continue to roll in with the ultimate goal of raising $50,000. You can donate at www.ironrideforals.ca. This weekend the riders will be on hand at the 9th annual Okanagan Walk for ALS which

takes place Saturday, June 16, at Waterfront Park in Kelowna. Registration is at 10 a.m. with the walk beginning at 11a.m. kparnell@kelownacapnews.com

Turek weighs options for 2012 season Bunce Warren Henderson

in school here, help him build towards an education at university when he does decide to make the move. We’re making sure he’s more than welcome to finish out his junior career with us.” Depending on what the B.C. Lions’ have planned for him, one other ambition for Turek would be earning some practice time with the CFL club at some point this spring and/or summer. If that happens, it’s almost a certainty Turek would play this season in Kelowna. After attending the Lions’ rookie camp and a portion of their main camp earlier this month in Kamloops, Turek got an ample taste of the professional game, leaving no question in his mind what he wants to do with his future. “I’ve wanted to play professional football since Grade 2, and being at Lions’ camp was an amazing experience,” Turek said. “It’s eye-opening for what you need to work on, how fast the game is, the size of the playbook. At the end of the day, it gives you that extra spark, that flame to play in the CFL.”

STAFF REPORTER

Seven weeks before the start of the B.C. Football Conference campaign, Danny Turek isn’t yet certain whether he’ll be in an Okanagan Sun uniform in 2012. Still, the possibility of staying in Kelowna for his fifth and final season of junior football remains firmly on the table for the 21-year-old receiver.

‘‘

THE OLDER I GET, THE HARDER THE DECISIONS ARE TO MAKE. Danny Turek

“I’m leaving my options pretty open right now,” said Turek, who has caught 149 passes for 3,170 yards and 23 touchdowns during his career with the Sun. “I’ve loved playing here with the Sun since 2008, it’s really been like my home. Coming back here for my last year is definitely a good option. But the older I get, the harder the decisions are to make.” Turek, a native of Winnipeg, hasn’t yet ruled out the potential of playing this fall in his hometown for the University of Manitoba Bisons. The 6-foot-3, 185-pound receiver attended spring camp with the Bisons back in 2009, but that summer he chose to return to Kelowna and has since played three more seasons of junior ball.

DOEGE PLAYS FOR LIONS FRED SCHAAD/CONTRIBUTOR

VETERAN SUN receiver Danny Turek is undecided on his plans for the 2012 football season. Turek expects to have an answer for all interested parties within the next month. The Sun’s 2012 main camp begins July 20, while the U of M starts up in mid-August. “The earlier I can decide, the better it is for the Sun and the better it is for Manitoba,” said Turek,

a CJFL All-Canadian in 2009, and BCFC all-star in 2011. “I have a good relationship with (Sun) Coach (Gavin) Lake and with (Bisons’ coach) Brian Dobie. “I know Coach Lake wants me to stay and he’ll be the first to know my decision.” From Gavin Lake’s

kelownarvs.com k of the Week c i P l’s Phi

perspective, one more season of wearing No. 84 for the orange and brown would be a win-win for both Turek and the Sun. “We’re going to do everything possible to convince Danny to stay,” said Lake. “He’ll be our No. 1 receiver, our No. 1 threat on the field. We can help in getting him started

Okanagan Sun veteran Steven Doege realized one of the first steps in his CFL dream Wednesday night. The 6-foot3, 240-pound defensive lineman, who has been with the Lions since the beginning of training camp in Kamloops, dressed for B.C.’s first pre-season game in Vancouver against the Saskatchewan Roughriders. Doege, 21, saw action on both ends of the defensive line and also played

2012 Timber Ridge

Steven Doege on special teams. “Steven got off the ball well and got some pressure on the quarterback,” said Sun head coach Gavin Lake. “He didn’t get there but he was close. He looked good.” One possible scenario for Doege this season would see him playing in games with the Sun on weekends, and practicing with the Lions during the week. It’s the same model the CFL club used in the development of running back Andrew Harris who is now the Lions’ starting tailback. Lake has little doubt Doege will one day be a bona fide CFL star, but believes he’ll benefit from at least one, perhaps two more seasons of junior football. “My hope is that he learns the game, gets quality time with the Lions, practices with them this season, and comes back to play with us,” said Lake. “I hope he sets the Canadian junior sack record, finishes out his junior career here, and wins a national championship on his home turf. “I think that arrangement would work for everybody concerned, the Sun, the Lions and Steven.” whenderson@kelownacapnews.com

Kids shine at the track

United prepare for soccer playoffs

Kevin Parnell

With the playoffs approaching Kelowna United soccer teams were working on their team games in the final weekend of league play last weekend Here’s a look at how they made out.

STAFF REPORTER

One record, a tie in a high-profile relay race and pretty much every type of weather you could imagine. That was the story after Wednesday’s annual running of the District Track and Field Championships at the Apple Bowl. “We had everything: We had sun, we had torrential rain and everything in between,” said organizer Enzo Delaurentiis. “But kids are kids. They had smiles the whole time which was nice to see.” Just under 500 kids represented 22 schools at the meet, which was for kids in Grades 4 through 6 that had won the events at their individual schools. Ellison Elementary Grade 5 student Hailey Wright was the lone record breaker on the day as she ran a 13.8 second 100 metre dash, breaking a record perviously set back in 2008. For the first time ever one of the 4 x 100 metre relay races ended in a tie as girls relay teams from Rose Valley and St. Jo-

U-13 GIRLS

DOUG FARROW/CONTRIBUTOR

A CLOSE FINISH during the Central Okanagan elementary track and field meet Wednesday at the Apple Bowl. seph’s each ran identical times and shared first place. The Rose Valley boys 4 x 100 relay team claimed first place in the boys relay. “It’s a very rewarding day for these kids,” said Delaurentiis. “If you look back on your childhood, elementary track meets were a big deal. You get to meet kids from other schools. You may get to compete against friends from other schools. It’s about competing against your friends and meeting

kids from other schools.” A large organizing committee of volunteers helped pull the event off as teachers and parents worked together to host the large event. It’s the fifth year in a row for the competitive track meet after the event was on hiatus for several years. Watch the Capital News next week for first place winners from all of the events. kparnell@kelownacapnews.com

A slow start by the U-13 girls saw them forced to come from behind against Kamloops. Payton Lewis-Brisco got Kelowna on the board and Danika Lee scored two goals in the second half as KU earned a 3-2 win over Kamloops. Keeper Hannah Allan’s beautiful diving save in the first half turned out to be huge in the win in the team’s final league games of the season

U-16 GIRLS The U-16 girls and the Penticton U-16 Pinnacles played to a 3-3 tie in the final regular season game for both teams. Casey Loudoun scored twice while Hannah Johnson also scored for Kelowna. The Pinnacles were able to tied the hard fought game 3-3. Kelowna keep-

er Lauren Grubisich had the save of the game, a spectacular mid-air, diving save that allowed Kelowna to stay in the game. The Kelowna girls will take on Kamloops this weekend for their first game of the TOYSL play downs.

U-11 BOYS-WARRIORS The U-11 Warriors split two games on the weekend, beating Kamloops White 3-1 before losing 3-2 to the Vernon. Against Kamloops, Zander Large, Nate Portz and Chris West scored while West and Sam Bishop had the goals in a losing cause against Vernon. Coleton Smith earned the win against the Loops and shared netminding duties with Large in the loss.

U-11 BOYS - SAINTS The U-11 Saints had a couple of lopsided wins, belting Revelstoke 9-1 before a 6-2 win over Kamloops Orange. Gregor Smith led the way with four goals, supported by singles from Riley Neal, Chad Dumka, Gavin Sherman, Pat-

rick Donovan, and Daniel Messent against Revelstoke. Great defense by Karlen Speiser and James Donick, amazing speed and passing by Brandon Frechette, along with superb goaltending by Gavin Sherman and Adrian Delgado helped to seal the win. Against Kamloops it was Smith with three goals while Gavin Sherman, Adrian Delgado, and Daniel Messent also scored.

a very good game in Kamloops on Sunday but fell 2-1. They were down 1-0 with Kamloops scoring on a penalty shot at half time. Kelowna came back with a great ball from Austin Glabus-Macleod to Jacob Dunn who put the ball in the net to tie the score. In the last few minutes of the game Kamloops was given another penalty shot. They capitalized on the opportunity giving them the win 2-1.

U-14 BOYS

The U-16 Boys carried the play from the start of the game with a 4-1 win over Vernon United. In their last regular season league game, solid defense from Karn Heera, Robert Kienle, Steven MacLean and Kirklin Patzer kept things in check. Goals were scored by Bryden DelMedico, Dylan Wagner, Josh Ugyan and Nick Morel. Josh Turner played a solid game in net. The U16 boys head to Penticton next weekend for 2 days of playoffs to determine regional champions and a berth at provincials.

Kelowna dominated their last game of the season, with eight different players scoring in a 9-0 win over Kamloops. Corbin Beauchemin opened the scoring, Jaden McNulty, Spencer Young, Josh Clark, Foster Warren, Matthew Harden, Noah Ridgway, Spencer Young and Kealan Cangiano also scored. The three stars were Josh Clark, Noah Ridgway and Kealan Cangiano

Purdy calls it a â&#x20AC;&#x153;SUP wave of changeâ&#x20AC;? as he tcontinues to push people to change the way they tlive. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This idea grew from the Paddle for the Planet project, just wanting to kdo more and seeing that we still need changes in the world,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have lots of contacts in the stand-up (paddling) world and I thought â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;why not try to have everybody paddle on the same day for change.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;?

KELOWNA stand up paddler Bob Purdy has organized World Paddle For The Planet Day Saturday in Kelowna while several other international events are happening at the same time. Purdy began his attempt at changing the world at the start of 2011, vowing to paddle everyday as a way to pro-

and Sunday will mark 534 days of straight paddling. But he says the change in the way people live has been slow to catch on. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I started I wanted to share the sport with the world and wanted to try and make some changes,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The paddling part for me is easy. The part that is challenging me the most is changing the way we live on the planet. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a roller coaster ride.

The Kelowna Falcons and Cowlitz Black Bears will wrap up a three-game West Coast League series tonight (Friday) at Elks Stadium. First pitch is 6:35 p.m This weekend, the Falcons will head south for a three-game series in Kitsap against the Bluejackets. Meanwhile, Kelowna had a three-game West Coast League winning streak snapped, falling to the Cowlitz Black Bears 6-2 at Elks Stadium. The Falcons allowed six unanswered runs in the game after the Bears would combine for four doubles off six Falcons pitchers. After scoring 23 runs in the three games against the Kitsap Bluejackets, the Falcons bats cooled off facing better pitching. Alec Cordova and Koby Gauna combined to allow two unearned runs and just six hits. Falconsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; shortstop Pat Johnson was 2-4 and scored a run.

The course once prompted world champion Kevin Reimer to proclaim it as one of the most technical race courses he has competed on. And thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why the event has grown from 56 riders in year one to what is expected to be about 150 riders this year. Many of the worlds top riders are already in the Okanagan, having participated in the Vernon Downhill last weekend and stayed in the area to ride the world renowned stretch of road at Giants Head Mountain near Summerland. The Skylands DH is a fully sanctioned and insured event that will see Upper Canyon Drive closed down from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. this Saturday and Sunday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I started this event be-

STAFF REPORTER

Many of the top longboard riders in the world will be in Kelowna this weekend as the third annual Skylands DH takes place high above the Okanagan Valley. Over 140 longboard skateboarders will take part in the event, which has tripled in growth since its inception two years ago. â&#x20AC;&#x153;B.C. is known for having some of the most technical race courses in the world and people will come from all over the world to ride them,â&#x20AC;? said organizer Blake Soneff. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The reason I chose the location is because of how technical the course was. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not Kelowna that is bringing these riders here itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the course.â&#x20AC;?

Most of the people are not there to win the race they are there for the experience and because they love the sport.â&#x20AC;? Practice runs will take

place all day Saturday with the actual races taking place Sunday. You can access the course by heading up Clifton, taking a right at Rio where you will find the parking lots. There is no charge for admission. â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘ Winners at this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Skylands DH will be presented with custom handcrafted longboards made in Kelowna. Derek Frechette, longboard maker and owner of Peregrine Longboards has partnered with Skylands to build four podium longboards for top-placing

athletes of the prestigious event. Peregrine Longboards emerged onto the skateboard racing scene building custom handcrafted longboards for local downhill racers in Kelowna. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are proud to be presenting Peregrine Longboards to the top four on the podium,â&#x20AC;? said Soneff. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to showcase the local talent of downhill longboarding and to be awarding the top competitors a Peregrine longboard is a perfect fit with what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to achieve with Skylands DH.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;When Blake contacted me about building podium longboards for the Skylands DH, my hair stood on end,â&#x20AC;? smiled Frechette. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is an honour to be involved with an event of this caliber. The longboards I built for the podium are one-of-a-kind and reflective of the talent and skill that these competitors bring from around the globe to ride in Kelowna.â&#x20AC;?

ENTERTAINMENT ▼ YOUNG PERFORMER

Beaming like a star, this Okanagan kid shines Kristin Froneman STAFF REPORTER

It’s not every day that a pint-sized singer/ songwriter/guitarist upstages a blues giant, but that’s what happened when Beamer Wigley took the stage at the 2010 Rarearth Music Festival. It happened as Jim Byrnes was ending his set. He guided the audience’s attention to the side stage, where the then seven-year-old talent was getting ready to perform. With his straight sandy blonde hair flopped onto the side on his face, three-quarter sized acoustic guitar in hand, Wigley had the audience at hello. But he had them eating out of the palm of his hand when he performed a song he wrote for a girl in his class, called Flirt Alert. Vernon’s Don Klepp remembers the moment well, along with the first time he and his wife, Betty, saw Wigley perform on stage. It was at the 2010 Our Kids Have Talent competition, and it was the first time the young Penticton-based performer ever played in front of a live audience.

“He got up on stage with his guitar and his nephew was accompanying him. He was twice the size of Beamer (who is 21 years younger than the youngest of his five older siblings),” said Klepp. “He had written two songs especially for the event. One was In the Valley, an homage to the Okanagan, and how beautiful it is and how we should appreciate it. I thought that was pretty impressive for a boy his age.” Wigley has since endeared himself to all those who have met him and seen him play. In Vernon, which he considers a second home, he has become a regular contestant at Our Kids since that inaugural performance. And this year, he placed third overall in the competition. His talents are becoming recognized near and far, says Klepp, and soon they will be heard at a nation-wide sporting event coming to town. Klepp (in addition to his involvement with the RBC Cup, the national junior A hockey tournament that is coming to Vernon in 2014), his wife Betty and OKHT founder/or-

was all his. “It’s a great song. It’s already received a couple thousand hits on YouTube. The chorus is very catchy and at least part of the song will become our theme song,” said Klepp. For Wigley, Hockey Tonight was one way he could honour the people, and the town, that have been supporting him since he first stepped on that stage more than two years ago. “The Klepps and Kath have been very supportive and helpful to me,” said Wigley. “I’ve made friendships with everyone at OKHT, and I plan to keep entering the contest as long as I can.” That, and Wigley says he would like to move to Nashville when he is 10 to become a country star like his idol Keith Urban. “I’ve seen Keith Urban twice. I first heard him on Start a Band with Brad Paisley, and after that I wanted to start a band,” said Wigley who, although he is primarily a solo performer, does occasionally invite a friend to perform with him on stage. He also has complete support from his pa-

rents, Mike and Heather, who not only help Beamer hone his songwriting skills, they accompany him to gigs and competitions, including Penticton’s Kiwanis Music Festival, where his high-pitched, clear and intune voice has won him almost every category he has entered. Mike Wigley says he first noticed his son’s musical inclination when he was five. Born in Kingston, Ont., Beamer was six weeks old when the family moved to the Okanagan. “He was always plunking away on some guitars I had lying around. We bought him a threequarter size guitar, and after that he learned to play the drums,” said Mike, adding Beamer is now home schooled and spends a lot of time in the family’s music room, which has a keyboard, drums and his newest addition—a 12-string guitar. “Music is a passion for him. He has absolutely no stage fright. He is mostly ear-trained, and although his teachers have tried to teach him to read music, he would rather get to the job of playing.”

The family also attributes Raeber for allowing Beamer to have a stage on which to perform. “We sent her a video for the Our Kids Have Talent, and he learned to sing for that. She has been so supportive of him the last two-and-a-half years. They all treat him so well. He’s been able to perform at festivals, and he and other musicians are always jamming together.” Beamer has also given back by donating the money he won at Our Kids to the competition, said Klepp. “His parents have instilled in him that he shouldn’t take anything for granted. He’s fortunate.” Wigley has a number of performances coming up, starting with the kickoff rally two years before the RBC Cup actually comes to B.C., The rally is at the Sunshine Festival, corner Hwy. 97 and 30th Avenue in Vernon this Saturday at noon. He will, of course, perform his Hockey Tonight song at the event. Kristin Froneman is a Black Press reporter with Vernon Morning Star.

NEWS ▼ MLA’S REPORT

Help with property taxes I

t’s that time of year again—homeowners throughout B.C. are receiving their property tax notices. If a family is feeling a financial squeeze, that property tax notice might be unusually painful. Fortunately, there are options. Over the years I’ve served on city council and as your MLA, I continue to find people unaware that in some cases, they can choose to temporarily defer part or all of their property taxes to a later date, or upon selling the property. There is no means test or any other requirement to disclose reasons— everyone is different. It’s simply a provincial government program that helps individuals and families keep a few more dollars in their pockets when they believe they need them the most. Property Tax Deferment is a low-interest loan program that assists qualifying homeowners in paying the annual prop-

Norm Letnick erty taxes on their principal residences. The regular program is for property owners 55 years or older, a surviving spouse, or a person with disabilities as defined by regulation. There are some restrictions and qualifications, but in all cases, to be eligible you must have, and maintain, a minimum equity of 25 per cent of the current B.C. assessment, after deducting the upper limit of all outstanding mortgages, lines of credit and other charges on your home. Your assessed property value for this calculation must exclude any

A BBQ celebration at City Park will feature a free BBQ for participants, with prizes for teams with the most pledges raised, most scavenger hunt points and best decorated cart. All funds raised go to supporting persons experiencing homelessness in Kelowna as we work to put an end to homelessness.

improvements not covered by a current fire insurance policy. The Families with Children Property Tax Deferment Program is an option for families where no property owner is over 55, but would like to defer property taxes during those years when household costs can be high. To be eligible, property owners must be financially supporting at least one dependent child under the age of 18. Helpfully, it’s a flexible program—you may defer either all, or a portion of the unpaid current year residential or residential and farm taxes after deduction of the homeowner grant. In all cases, property tax deferment is administered by the B.C. Ministry of Finance in conjunction with the municipal tax collectors and, in rural areas, the surveyor of taxes. Please note that if you sell any portion of your property, the tax and interest become fully repayable.

Aside from deferring property taxes—which, again, is a temporary solution—homeowners may also want to look into the homeowner grant program. Qualified applicants receive a reduction of up to $570, with an additional $275 available for homeowners aged 65 or over, permanently dis-

San Diego could be improved. If the county had 75 miles of beaches instead of 70. If the Padres won a World Series or the Chargers won a Super Bowl. Or if the municipal sloganeers dropped “America’s finest city” in favour of “You stay classy, San Diego.” But this is nit-picking. Besides its most obvious tourist attractions— the beaches, the zoo and Old Town—San Diego’s downtown has interesting edges, several old neighborhoods are showing new vigor, and everybody

seems to be brewing artisan beer. It’s kid-friendlier than San Francisco, cooler than the desert and healthier than just about any place. It’s true that many San Diegans claim to hate all things L.A., but between complaints, they’ve built a destination that’s likely to keep Angelenos coming forever.

Wild things in parks and zoos, not to mention on the beaches California from A27 samplings in the last few months. Wild things on land For all the attention it gets, the San Diego Zoo (2920 Zoo Drive, San Diego) boils down to about 3,700 animals on 100 acresâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;not unlike certain college campuses. Spend a full day from the 9 a.m. opening. Use the bus or Skyfari aerial tram to trim walking time. And be glad that, unlike the Los Angeles Zoo, this one has a pleasant full-service restaurant: Albertâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, in the Lost Forest. At $32 a kid, the zoo costs about half as much as SeaWorld, and parking is free. Park and the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;hoods Even if you omit the zoo, Balboa Park (1549 El Prado, San Diego) is among the most inviting and enlightening public spaces on the West Coast. At South Park you can get a burger, beer and picnic-table seat while the kids gobble hot dogs and goof off in the play area at the Station Tavern (2204

Fern St., San Diego). Play ball, eat well The East Village (www.sdeastvillage.com), east of the Gaslamp Quarter, is beginning to outshine much of downtown. It helps that pleasant, intimate Petco Park (100 Park Blvd., San Diego) is tucked in amid the condos, hotels, retailers and restaurants. And it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hurt that the ballpark has added Hodadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, a locally renowned burger joint, to its list of food purveyors. When the time is right, flop at the Hotel Solamar (435 6th Ave., San Diego), a block from the ballpark. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t try any of this July 12-15when Comic-Con takes over downtown. Little Italy Then the tuna industry began to shrivel, Caltrans put a freeway through the neighborhood, and Little Italy dwindled. Now itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s back, with thematic emphasis, and India Street buzzes with shops, restaurants, bars, the occasional butcher and barber, and a handful of lodgings, all within about five blocks

of the Embarcaderoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s historic ships (www.sdmaritime.org and www.midway.org) and eight blocks of the downtown train station. For dinner, grab a table at Bencotto (750 W.

1005 Rosecrans St. Or pop over the hill to scruffy Ocean Beach, where surf shops, antiques sellers and bars dominate Newport Avenue, along with the Black (5017 Newport Ave., San Diego), a head shop that opened its doors when Jimi Hendrix was still touring. For dinner, try pizza or pasta at Point Lomaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s upscale waterfront Pizza Nova (5050 N. Harbor Drive, San Diego). Wild things in water Shamu beckons, and if you can face entrance fees of as much as $73 a head, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll answer. Founded in 1964 by four former UCLA frat brothers, SeaWorld San Diego (500 Sea World Drive, San Diego) has rides, shows and scores of animals. Brace yourself for big crowds on summer weekends, especially July 14 and 15 and July 21 and 22, when the annual Overthe-Line Tournament on nearby Fiesta Island draws thousands of revelers. Later, retire to Paradise Point (1404 Vacation Road, San Diego), a selfcontained 44-acre, 462room family resort. Sleek or rustic Just about the sleekest thing in hard-partying Pacific Beach is Tower 23 (723 Felspar St., San Diego), a bright minimalist hotel that faces the waves and the old wooden Crystal Pier. If the beachfront parade of joggers, bikers and skateboarders is too much, try a room on the quieter bay side of Mission Boulevard at the Catamaran Hotel (3999 Mission Blvd., San Diego). Cliffs and coves La Jollaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s scenery speaks for itself, if you can hear it over the yawp of the harbor seals on the beach at the Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pool near Coast Boulevard and Jenner Street.

TRAVEL

Torrey Pines area in La Jolla has scenic vistas to linger over California from A28 Ellen Browning Scripps Park, the Coast Walk Trail between Cave Street and Torrey Pines Road. The Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego (700 Prospect St., La Jolla) was born in 1915 as a private home designed by modernist pioneer architect Irving Gill, and his work is all around. Big views The epic scenery continues at Torrey Pines

State Beach (North Torrey Pines Road, La Jolla), Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve (12600 N. Torrey Pines Road) and Torrey Pines Golf Course (11480 N. Torrey Pines Road). You might want to sleep at the Spanish-style Estancia La Jolla resort (9700 N. Torrey Pines Road, La Jolla) or visit Birch Aquarium (2300 Expedition Way, La Jolla). Later, catch a show at La Jolla Playhouse on the UC San Diego campus at 2910 La

Hotel Solamar, 435 6th Ave., San Diego; (610) 819-9500, www.hotelsolamar.com.

Jolla Village Drive. While the sun still hangs high, head past the stark, concrete symmetry of the Salk Institute for Biological Studies (10010 N. Torrey Pines Road) to the rambling bluff top of the Torrey Pines Gliderport (2800 Torrey Pines Scenic Drive). Grab a snack at the Gliderport’s Cliffhanger Cafe to watch the hang gliders jump and swoop. Then look south to La Jolla Cove or down 300 feet to Black’s Beach, where surfers hang out.

Mustang GT Convertible a modern-day muscle car Lorne Drury CONTRIBUTOR

Some cars look spectacular in red. The 2013 Mustang GT Premium Convertible is one of them. I’ve always loved Mustangs, but maybe none more than this model that has undergone some minor tweaking for 2013. My wife’s first car was a plain Jane 1972 Mustang with a 250 cu. in. V6 engine. We had that car for years until rust got the better of it. It was the old story, driven by an old lady to church and the golf club. When the lady had to give up driving, my broth-

er-in-law Kevin picked up the car and then sold it to us when I mentioned to him we were looking for a car for his sister. Other than driving issues in the winter because of the significant front-end weight bias, I think it might have been my wife’s favourite car. After a week with this new version of the venerable Pony Car that first debuted in 1964 at the New York World’s Fair, I have to admit I’m smitten again, just as I was last year after a stint in a Shelby Mustang. This would not be an inexpensive toy, though,

Ford Mustang GT gets even more power in 2013 Mustang from B1 particularly in 5.0-litre GT Premium garb, pricing out at $51,729, including $1,500 freight and PDI. My tester was decked out with lots of bells and whistles, including $5,930 in options. If this is a little too pricey for your pocket book however, 2013 Mustangs start at just $23,499 for the base V6 Coupe, $25,999 for the V6 Premium Coupe and $30,999 for the V6 Premium Convertible. Moving up to the GT Coupe with V8 starts at $37,299, while the GT Convertible is $42,299. The Boss, with its 444 hp high output 5.0-litre V8, starts at $48,799. At the top rung of the Mustang ladder is the Shelby GT 500. The 2013 Mustang maintains the retro theme that began in 2005, but with more aggressive looks and lots of new technology. The fascias, both front and rear, have been redesigned with a more prominent grille and splitter, while the new model also features standard high intensity discharge (HID) headlamps, signature lighting inside, paint-

ed body side rockers, new LED tail lamps and a new lineup of wheels. Last but not least is a new projection light on the underside of the mirror that reflects the Mustang pony logo on the ground in front of you when you press the key fob to open the door. I hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t read the press literature before I drove the car so the first evening I experienced the projection light I said to my wife, â&#x20AC;&#x153;that is so coolâ&#x20AC;? as I tried to figure out how it was done. I know, I know, small things amuse small minds. The GT gets even more power this year, up to 420 horsepower (from 412 hp), as well as SelectShift automatic transmissions and Hill Start Assist that I experienced on the six-speed manual model I tested. Adding to the more aggressive look of the new model are functional heat extractors on the hood of the GT that draw heat out of the engine compartment to help cool the engine. My test car had a $2,300 Electronics Package with a voice-activated navigation system and dual zone automatic climate control. The GT

fore as the 5.0-litre V8 now produces 420 hp (up from 412 last year).

Brake Performance Package ($1,700) added premium 19-inch wheels, unique electronic stability control (ESC) tuning and a tire mobility kit replacing the mini spare tire. Also included in the options list was the $700 reverse sensing system and active antitheft system. The Shaker Pro System audio system was a $1,000 option and features nine speakers and satellite radio. Inside, the cabin is much improved over what was a few years ago a very â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;tackyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; look. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not luxurious, but it is functional and nicely finished. The back seat will only be used to carry pas-

with our tea in travel mugs and finally gave up putting them in the cup holders because I jostled them on every shift. These minor quibbles aside, this car is a keeper. Turn the key and the engine roars to life and then settles into a gurgle that is music to the ears of a muscle car buff like this reviewer. If you like the sound of an automobile engine, it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get much better than this! This is not a car for those who want to fade into the woodwork. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s impossible not to be both seen and heard. I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe the number of

sengers in a pinch and to add to the 272 litres (9.6 cu ft) of cargo space in the trunk. All in all, the interior of the convertible is tight, but I thought the Saddle Brown leather upholstery on my test car was very nice. One observer thought it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go well with the Race Red exterior colour, but I thought the combination worked well. One annoying feature in the cabin is the location of the cup holders. Whether it was a bottle of water or a coffee cup, I was always jamming my arm on them when shifting. One morning we came out

stares, thumbs up and comments I got during my week with the car. In fact, one teenager riding his bike along the sidewalk gave me a few appreciative nods and then almost had his head on a swivel as he turned to watch us drive way. The leather seats are comfortable, supportive and well bolstered. The top operates in a traditional fashion by simply twisting two latches at top of the windshield header and holding the top up/down button. In seconds, the top folds down and if you wish, there is an available leather boot to cover it.

MOTORING â&#x2013;ź HONDA CR-V

A good thing gets better Neil Moore CONTRIBUTOR

When the Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4 hit showroom floors in 1997, the effect on the industry was, if not revolutionary, at least evolutionary. These products largely defined the compact SUV segment, giving consumers a more fuel efficient, more nimble alternative to the gas-guzzling, full-size sport utilities of the day. Since then, design changes for the most part have been incremental. Probably because the typical compact SUV buyer favours the tried-and-true formulaâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;tall-box trucky styling, all-wheel-drive surefootedness and a large four cylinder engine for a

reasonable compromise between power and fuel economy. Which is what Honda has always delivered with their top-selling CR-V. Sure, it has evolved in terms of styling, with the new-for-2012 model benefiting from deeper sculpting of the body lines and a bolder front fascia. The updated look also features a strong three-bar grille, flanked by wraparound, projector style headlights, giving it more visual impact than previous models. The rear-sloping roofline is followed by windows that narrow to the rear, all ending at the CRVâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s signature vertical taillights that now have a more three-dimensional look.

But none of this is a dramatic departure from 2010â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mild refresh. Nor is the 2012 CR-Vâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s size, as thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only a slight decrease in length, and a drop in height: 26 mm on 4WD (four-wheels-drive) and 36 mm on FWD (front-wheel-drive) models, all done without a loss in passenger volume. Other evolutionary changes are under the skin, such as an increase in body stiffness and refinements in the suspension. Thanks as well to underbody covers and a rear spoiler, not to mention more noise insulation, and the new CR-V enjoys a passenger cabin that is nearly as quiet as its Acura sibling. And nearly as posh. My tester, in top-level

CONTRIBUTED

NOW IN ITS fourth generation, the 2012 Honda CR-V (Touring model shown) is still a rugged, practical family hauler with car-like passenger comforts and the stability of all-wheel-drive. Honda continues to make a good thing better in its second best-selling model. Touring trim, had comfortable, double-stitched leather seating (10-way power for the driver) with double-stitched armrests,

leather-wrapped steering wheel and shifter, loads of soft-touch materials, metallic and chrome accents.

ing with audio and cruise controls, heated front seats, conversation mirror with sunglasses holder, and four-speaker 160-watt AM/FM/CD/MP3/WMA audio system with speedsensitive volume. All CR-Vs also get a multi-info display with five-inch colour screen and steering-wheel controls. This gives you access to the usual stuff like clock, compass, trip computer, fuel economy and various warnings, as well as audio system, Bluetooth and SMS text messaging. You can even customize it with your own wallpaper. Even more unexpected is the standard equipped rearview camera that displays either on this monitor or on the larger navigation screen, when available. The driver can select from three settings that include a wide 180-degree view, and top-down view. Another thoughtful detail is the expanded view driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s-side mirror. Its inner portion uses a flat pane for standard viewing, while the outer portion uses a convex element for a wider field of view. Great for detecting vehicles in what could otherwise be a blind spot. The standard powerplant for all CR-V models is Hondaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proven 2.4-litre, i-VTEC DOHC four-cylinder engine. A few tweaks for 2012 give it five more ponies for a total of 185 hp, and two more lb/ft of torque now peaking at 163. A five-speed automatic transmission is standard. Fuel economy is also improved for both frontdrive and AWD modelsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; up to 12 per cent better in

MOTORING

Real Time AWD gets another litre per 100 km mileage Honda from B4 highway driving. For those models equipped with Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control—the new electronically-controlled unit with quicker response and less internal friction—consumption has decreased to 9.2/6.6L/100km (city/ hwy), an improvement of nearly one litre per 100 clicks. To assist with greener motoring—not one of my stronger points—every CR-V comes with the Eco Assist system. Illuminated arcs on either side of the speedo show if you’re being naughty or nice. Green lights mean you’re driving fuel efficiently; white lights, not so much. There’s also a green “Econ” button just left of the steering wheel. Push it and the drive-by-wire system slows the throttle response, and backs off the climate control to con-

serve fuel. With a curb weight of 1,608 kg as tested, I felt the 2.4-litre engine had to work hard enough without engaging this powerrobbing feature. Hence I kept it turned off most of the time. Indeed, the CR-V is no road rocket, and certainly can’t keep up with a V6-powered RAV4 or turbocharged Sportage. But you’re not paying the price either in the showroom or at the pumps. Despite my tendency towards lead-footedness, the CR-V still managed a combined fuel economy of 10.5/L per 100 km during my week of testing. And its launch and passing power were more than satisfactory for a fourcylinder truck. As with any tall vehicle, there’s some lean in the corners, but the CRV’s MacPherson strut front and multi-link rear suspension (with front and

worthy competition in this segment, but here the CR-V still holds a healthy second place. And with sales up 28 per cent year-to-date, it demonstrates that Honda’s small, measured changes continue to be the right changes for the CR-V.

CR-V OFFERS superb fit and finish on the inside, especially in the top-trim Touring model, which includes premium content like leather seating surfaces, upgraded audio system, navigation with rearview camera and more. rear stabilizer bars), kept body roll to a minimum. But performance driving is typically low on the list of ‘must haves’ for those considering a compact sport utility—cargo carrying is more relevant.

And here is where the CR-V shines. Not that it has the largest cargo capacity in its class, but that Honda continues to make it easier to use. Case in point is the ‘easy fold’ 60/40 split

rear seat that employs a couple of release handles in the cargo area, and a strap by each rear door. A single pull on any of these will individually tilt the seat base forward, lower the headrest and drop the seatback forward.

MOTORING Neil Moore CONTRIBUTOR

A sleek Tesla roadster it ainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. Mitsubishiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new iMiEV, which launched in December 2011, has that kind of quirky styling youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d expect from an electric vehicle.

Part jelly bean, part smart car, the silhouette of this perky little four-door subcompact begins in a sweeping arc from front bumper to rear hatch, where it abruptly ends in the tall vertical taillights. This arc returns to the front along the underside of the rear doors, complet-

ing the i-MiEVâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s teardrop profile. Elongated headlamps, nearly the size of its 15inch wheels, flank both sides of the hood, giving it a cute, bug-like first impression. The i-MiEV may be whimsical in appearance, but serious thought has

gone into its pricing, packaging and design. For starters, cost is a major barrier to this kind of vehicle, and Mitsubishi has wisely positioned the i-MiEV as Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most affordable electric car. At $32,998, it starts at roughly six grand less than the entry Nissan Leaf

sometimes, more is more

PRONOUNCED wheel arches and optional 15-inch alloys give the i-MiEVâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quirky styling a sporting touch. and about $8,500 below the base Chevrolet Volt. Smaller in price, smaller in size, and although the i-MiEV offers less passenger room, I found it spacious enough in front and with adequate room for my five-foot-nine frame in back. Six footers, however, may find rear leg room a bit tight. The cargo hold is also less commodious than in the Leaf (but larger than the Volt), and at 377 litres behind the reclineable second row, is ample for a couple of golf bags or a weekend away. When you drop the 50/50 split seats, that expands to a cavernous 1,430 litres. In terms of power, Mitsuâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 66 hp and 145 lb/ ft of torque may seem a bit light when compared to the competition, but so is the car, tipping the scales at only 1,171 kg. Which helps give it a pretty decent range at 155 kmâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re easy on the pedal. To help monitor that, the Eco Meter provides real-time feedback on your driving habits. It tells you when the battery is charging (such as during regenerative braking), when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re using minimal power, and when pushing it hard. A separate fuel gauge displays the batteryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s remaining charge. Unlike the Nissan and Chevy, electric motors in the i-MiEV drive the rear wheels. That feature, combined with the carâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s low centre of gravityâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;

thanks to battery placement below the floorâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; make it stable and even fun in the corners. Not sportscar-like fun, but better than Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d expected. Ditto for power. I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t consider the i-MiEV quick, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on par with most subcompacts thanks to the ability of an electric motor to deliver peak torque from the start. Another advantage is thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no transmission, reducing powertrain complexity and noise. Other than some tire and road rumble, this car operates almost silently, which is why the company has installed a sound generator in the front. It creates an electric whine at low speeds, letting pedestrians know youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re coming. What didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t live up to my expectationsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;for a $30K-plus carâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;was the passenger cabin. Standard features include power windows, keyless entry, air conditioning and a 100-watt audio system, but with an overabundance of hard plastic, it looks and feels entry-level. Even the $3,000 premium package, which adds upgraded upholstery, leather-wrapped steering (with audio and Bluetooth controls), painted accents and a little chrome blingâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;not to mention a 40 GB HDD navigation and 360-watt

So is it good value? That depends on the price of gas and electricity, neither of which appear to be dropping anytime soon. According to company sources, the average gasoline-powered car in Canada gets 10.0 litres/100 km, which at $1.20/litre, would cost $12 to travel 100 km. Going the same distance in the i-MiEV would use about 18.7 kwh (kilowatt-hours) of elec-

tricity, and at an average price of 12 cents per kwh, the cost would be $2.20. Factor in an annual mileage of 20,000 km, and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d save about $1,951 per year. So to answer the above question, it really depends on how far you drive. Which in the i-MiEV has strict limitations, as unlike the Volt, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no gas engine to fall back on.

THE 2012 Mitsubishi The driver who delivered my press car mentioned that some journalists have been able to squeeze 170180 km out of a charge, but at the same time admits he’s been called out with his flatbed truck on more than one occasion. Charging can be done via your standard household outlet. The on-board Level 1 cable will take the i-MiEV from near ‘empty’ to full charge in about 22 hours. This works well for short commutes, but if your drive to work is 6070 km, be sure to top it up at the office. Better yet, install a 240V Level 2 charging station at home, which will provide a full charge in seven hours. The i-MiEV has three driving modes: Eco, Brake and Drive. I kept it in the latter most of the time, as it delivered the most punch and wasn’t too hindered by the car’s regenerative braking. Besides, with an equivalent fuel economy rating of 2.1 litres/100 km, I wasn’t too worried about stomping on the pedal now and then. Eco mode, as expected, blunts throttle response and acceleration— which is okay for highway cruising. And Brake mode adds even more drag, but helps recharge the battery. With only 117 iMiEVs sold to date, this is very much a niche product—and for most buyers it would serve best as a second vehicle. My 250km family trip to Grand Bend last summer would

have taken two days. But for those who live and work downtown, the i-MiEV can handle most of their daily needs. And it does demonstrate that the electric car is well on its way to becoming mainstream. With improvements in battery technology to increase range, and the inevitable cost-cutting that comes with higher volumes, I can envision plenty more of these in our driveways someday soon. i-MiEV from B10

Barbecue season has returned T here are certainly a few annual telltale signs that summer is nearby. The April showers that did indeed bring Mayflowers, return again in June and damn near drown everything grown in May, the price of gas jumps as July 1 approaches, and families are reunited when the NHL playoffs finally end. Around my household, summer also means a couple of other traditions including a lot of time spent by Tez and I sitting in two of our many yard chairs (scattered around the property like leaves) while â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;analysingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; the yard or garden. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Analysingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; is the fine art of doing nothing but talk about doing something for, well, usually a long time. It often involves some form of libation to dampen the parched throat after a long day of other serious â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;analysing.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; (Writers do a lot of analysing). Barbecues also become a regular part of dietary life in the Hodge household. When we are not blazing something ourselves on the home grill, there is usually one or two other barbecue events happening around town. For instance, on Saturday, June 23, Tez and I will likely head over to see my old Kelowna city council crony Graeme James and chow down on one of his yummy hamburgers. Graeme is a great friend, and a wonderful community conscious and caring man. A real bonus during my three years on council was the pleasure of getting to know Graeme.

We may not have HODGE PODGE always agreed, how-

ever Graeme was always sincere, adamant, honest and well informed. He battled on issues with Charlie a sense of conviction Hodge and always with decorum and integrity. He is hosting the upcoming fund raising barbecue for the local B.C. Conservative Constituency, a fun event that will include a brief talk by new Conservative MLA John van Dongen. James is vying for the right to represent the local Conservative Constituency in the GlenmoreLake Country riding during the next provincial election. The barbecue runs from 4 to 8 p.m. at 2360 Scenic Rd. If you are interested in attending, contact Graeme James for tickets at 250-762-2861. *** Another Hodge summer tradition is attending some of the plethora of CD release events hosted by Okanagan musicians in June and July. It seems many talented musicians retreat into their song-writing world and recording studios during the cold winter months, produce the goods in spring, and hit the market in early summerâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;which makes total sense. I am lucky enough to be invited to most of them. So, I have a good idea what Tez and I plan to do after the Graeme James barbecue, as I think a whole bunch of toe-tapping, knee-slapping exercise while listening to some tremendous fiddle music is in hand. Vic Ukrainetz, one of the top fiddle players in the province, if not

the country, is releasing his CD that night, and it ought to be a lot of fun. The event takes place at the Knights of Columbus Hall at 130 McCurdy Rd., starting at 7 p.m. Admission is free but you better RSVP Vic at vicukr@shaw.ca or phone 860-7612. *** If you have a pencil and calendar handy, mark down July 25 as a day to plan on some golf and great food. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the date the tremendously popular Ugly Jacket Golf Tournament, which takes place at the Harvest Golf Course. This year marks the seventh that Brad Krauza and friends have organized, a superb fundraising event to benefit the sick children in our community. Krauza and organizers have formed the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Wish Come True Societyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; with the focus on building a Hospice House for children in Kelowna! â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have supported our communityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s children and their families for seven yearsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;making donations to help with the financial burden that comes with having an ill child. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Two things we heard parents say over the years were, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I want my child well againâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;How am I going to pay my rent, mortgage, travel, treatment for my childâ&#x20AC;Ś, while Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m off work, on assistance, or unemployed?â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? So Krauza decided to begin the solution. Great idea Brad. Good on you!

’ve just returned from a week in Alberta and am amazed at how many more plants have burst into bloom since I left. Walking in my neighbourhood, I’ve been especially aware of all the shrubs in bloom. Cooler, wet weather is lengthening the flowering time of some. Mock orange (Philadelphus lewisii) is just beginning to open its fragrant, white blooms in gardens and in the wild. Wild roses are covered in fragrant pink blooms. A compact variety, selected by UBC Botanical Gardens and available at nurseries, Rosa woodsii ‘Kimberley’ has darker pink flowers and small, bluish-green leaves. In my garden, another native, ocean spray (Holodiscus discolour) will open its froth of creamy blooms in a few days. Later this month, the native elderberry (Sambucus caerulea) will open its lacy white flowers to be followed by masses of small smokey-blue berries. These can be made into a very healthy juice or wine. Two varieties of ninebark (Physocarus opulifolius) that I grow for their outstanding foliage colour are ‘Diabolo’ with burgundy leaves and pink flowers,’ and golden ninebark with yellow leaves and white flowers. The golden variety blooms earlier and is just finishing. Another burgundyleaved shrub, smoke bush (Cotinus coggygria ‘Royal Purple’) is just opening its smokey-pink, frothy bloom which lasts much of the summer. Beauty bush (Kolkwitzia amabilis) is currently a mass of pink trumpet-shaped flowers that are enjoyed by hummingbirds. Its peeling bark creates good winter interest. All of these shrubs are low water users once they are established. There are many roses blooming right now. Rugosa rose varieties are among the most drought tolerant. My favourite is ‘Hansa’ with abundant,

low water shrub. There are many varieties available. My favourites for toughness and long yellow bloom are ‘Coronation Triumph’ and the low-growing ‘Yellow Gem.’ It is a UBC Botanical Garden selection of the native shrub I have enjoyed seeing in Cathedral Mountain Park near Keremeos. Two very drought tolerant plants that are known as sub shrubs but often classed as perennials are also blooming. Both are deer-proof. Lavender has fragrant flowers and foliage and will bloom again at the end of summer, especially if dead flowers are removed. That is a good time to shape it if needed. Up to one third of the foliage may be removed to encourage denser new growth. Yuccas have a showy spike or creamy flowers. These plants do best in full sun with no water. With so many plants in bloom, this Saturday

Key lesson learned from school—never stop learning T his is the time of year when teenagers turn into pyromaniacs. This isn’t manifested through fireworks or bonfire parties, but rather, something much more ceremonious: the burning of all school binder contents.

CONNECTING WITH YOUTH

From science notes

to French worksheets, many of us students say good riddance to the materials we have acquired throughout the school year and joyously welcome two months of being outside the classroom. Meanwhile, millions of people in the world can only dream of being in-

side the classroom and receiving an education. But we don’t think about school like this. And while we should recognize and be thankful for this incredible opportunity, there are some valid reasons why we don’t like school. Spending five hours

Protecting our province from the harmful effects of used oil and antifreeze must be a responsibility we all share, together. So please, next time you look to dispose of used oil or antifreeze materials, find a collection facility near you. Here are three easy ways to do so:

what the real end goal is. However, when I have verbalized these questions with teachers, their responses actually made sense to me and made the assignment feel worthwhile. More often than we as students think, there is a good reason for what

In a continued effort to encourage higher rates of recovery, BCUOMA has built a strong support network across the province. Today, participation includes 209 brand-owner members, 39 collectors and processors, 520+ return collection facilities and more than 4,000 generators. In addition, BCUOMA is reprising its successful ambassador program this summer – with two ambassadors touring the province to educate and raise awareness of the importance of used oil and antifreeze recycling.

Although it’s commonly accepted that oil and antifreeze are not household garbage we can simply throw out, more than one million litres of used oil ends up in BC landfills every year. When you consider that it only takes one drop of oil to contaminate a million drops of water, the problem is clear: there’s just too many drops to count, too many to ignore. BCUOMA is a non-for-profit organization that encourages British Columbians to responsibly recycle used oil, oil filters, oil containers, used antifreeze and antifreeze containers. Since the launch of the program in 2003, British Columbians have done an exceptional job of recycling their used oil materials.

a day in a hard, cold desk is never going to be anyone’s preference, but it goes deeper than that. A lot of the time, school just feels pointless. I sometimes wonder how often the “Why?” question is being asked by those who are responsible for our education, and

ONE DROP MAKES A DIFFERENCE.

2011 RECOVERY RATES

By recycling your used oil and antifreeze products, you’re playing an important role in preserving our environment for future generations. As of July 1, 2011 antifreeze and antifreeze containers have been included within the broader recycling program. From the 10 million litres of automotive antifreeze sold in BC each year, about 45% will be available for collection and recycling. Please check for a collection facility near you.

we’re doing in school. But when this reason is not communicated, we feel disdain rather than an appreciation for its value. When it comes time for me to clean out my locker, I do throw the majority of things away (especially the ones that have a tiny ecosystem developing on them). But there can be a lot said about the fact that I don’t throw everything away. I still have handouts from as far back as Grade 9 that I have reread several times. And although we all fear being labeled as nerds for this, many of my friends have admittedly done the same. Many of my notes have been spared from the flame because they are from subjects that genuinely interest me. But ironically, we often shy away from subjects that really interest us simply because we encounter them in a school context. It would be unrealistic to say that every aspect of school is enjoyable or has a point. But that doesn’t mean that every aspect of school has to be loathed. We’re human, and it’s natural for us to wonder about the world around us. People have always been doing this, but we have the unique opportunity of asking these questions in a time and culture where there is so much information available at our fingertips. As I finish my last week of high school, I can see that one of the most valuable things I learned is this: Don’t let the negative aspects of school prevent you from learning about your passions and growing as a person. And almost as important: Mould doesn’t need to grow as much as you do, so don’t wait to the end of the year to clean out your locker. You might be surprised at what you keep.

Today again I walk with you Down through the years gone by. And though unseen I feel you near And ever by my side. I remember the day I met you. And the day God made you mine. I remember the day I lost you. And will till the end of time. Through all the tears and sadness One thing makes me glad. You chose me to share with you Those wonderful years we had. Though tears in my eyes do not glisten, And my face is not always sad. There is never a day or night That I don’t think of the husband I had.

SHOWCASE W SUMMIT AT SELKIRK

Final stage unveiled of Dilworth Mt. development Bobbi-Sue Menard CONTRIBUTOR

Summit at Selkirk is the crowning glory of te Dilworth Mountain development. After two decades of consistent building in the neighbourhood that wreaths the hillsides of Dilworth Mountain, Summit at Selkirk marks the last developable site at the top of Dilworth. Dilworth Homes has decided to create luxury, upscale semi-detached townhomes as the fitting cap to the mountain. Townhome is a slight misnomer, as these sideby-side semi- detached homes have fully finished walkout lower floors, the main floors range in size from 1,357 to almost 1,700 square-feet of living space. Summit at Selkirk is designed for the home owner looking for a luxury option with fantastic views in a well designed, private neighborhood. Summit at Selkirk will build at 20 homes in five phases. The current showhome is the Sandford floor plan and it showcases the possibilities in the floor plan. The Sandford is 1,620 sq.ft. on the main level, with a grand curved staircase to the perfectly appointed lower level. Dilworth builds their homes with the customer in mind—home buyers can choose from a wide array of finishing options and customizations to suit their own tastes and preferences. The current Sanford show home is an exercise

in elegance and quality with muted creams punctuated by dark woods done in modern, clean lines. A main floor living concept drives the layout and design of the Sanford. The front door and the private entry through the double car garage radiate around a generous front entry that is completed with a den and powder room. The space is functional for everyday life and when guest are over, there is ample closet storage built in to handle any situation. The great room kitchen, dining and living room are beautiful. The galley kitchen features a long, ultra-functional island with bar seating and a frankly gorgeous expanse of granite countertop. The classic work triangle in the kitchen is instantly achieved and the large pantry is only steps

away. The kitchen looks out onto the dining room with enough space to accommodate a large Christmas dinner gathering, yet cozy enough for every day meals. At one end of the kitchen is easy access to the large covered deck for outdoor dining and entertaining. The living room features a gas fire place along the feature wall. The end wall of the living room is home to banks of windows, flooding the space with natural light. The furnishing options are endless in the well-proportioned room. The master suite is designed for homeowners who love comfort. The walk-in closet has plenty of space to share. The ensuite bathroom is fully equipped with a separate water closet. Downstairs there is an outstanding amount of

There is no worry about having a garage overrun with items you can’t find a place for in the home, the interior storage is ample. As the main show home at Summit at Selkirk, the Sandford is a revealing look at what’s on

store for the final development touches at the top of Dilworth Mountain. There are six home plans to choose from. The show home is open every day but Friday, noon to 5 p.m. For more information visit dilworthhomes.com.
