hen the annual National Hockey League entry draft commences tonight in Pittsburgh, two members of the Kelowna Rockets will have a special interest in the teams’ draft selections. Among North American draft eligible prospects, centre Colton Sissons is ranked 14th, while defenseman Damon Severson is ranked 48th.

For both teenagers, the dream of playing in the NHL is about to take a major step forward, a culmination of years of playing minor hockey and making the jump to the Western Hockey League, one of the three top junior hockey circuits in Canada. Capital News reporter Kevin Parnell talks with both Sissons, 18, and Severson, 17, about how they feel about their NHL draft prospects. See story A3

IT’S PRETTY INTENSE AND OF COURSE, IT’S A BUSINESS. (NHL TEAMS) ARE TRYING TO FIND NEW PLAYERS TO DEVELOP AND TRY TO WIN STANLEY CUPS. Colton Sissons

IT’S GOING TO FEEL LIKE THE LONGEST WEEKEND OF MY LIFE. IT’S GOING TO FEEL LIKE AN ETERNITY, JUST THINKING WHERE YOU ARE GOING TO GO. JUST KNOWING WILL BE A WEIGHT OFF MY SHOULDERS. Damon Severson

CONTRIBUTED BY MARISSA BAECKER

Kevin Parnell STAFF REPORTER

T

hey’ve been poked and prodded, studied and tested. They’ve had sit-down interviews with the majority of NHL teams. Now both are expecting to hear their names called tonight or Saturday as the NHL holds its 2012 NHL Entry Draft. For Kelowna Rockets players Colton Sissons, of North Vancouver, and Damon Severson of Mellville, Sask., this weekend will mark the end of more than a year of trying to impress hockey people around the globe each and every time they hit the ice. From the warmth of Prospera Place to places like Toronto and even the Czech Republic, the two players have been watched by hundreds, if not thousands, of hockey eyes. Now they head into the 2012 draft—the first round is Friday night, the rest of the rounds are Saturday—with every kid’s dreams approaching even closer.

By the time the weekend is over, the pair will have new goals and a huge weight lifted off their respective shoulders. ••• In his two seasons with the Rockets, Colton Sissons has established himself as a smart player and a good leader. He was named captain at the start of last season and then became the Rockets most consistent player. He was a team captain when the CHL/ NHL Top Prospects game was held in Kelowna, where he played a physical game against the game’s best prospects. Then last month at the NHL draft combine, he met with 23 NHL teams as they wondered whether he was the man they wanted. “It’s definitely a stressful year,” said Sissons earlier this week, before flying to Pittsburgh with his parents, his sister and his billet parents. “It’s the biggest year of your hockey career. There are ratings coming out left, right and centre and people are asking you about it and how it’s affecting your play.”

The NHL combine was one of the final stages of scouting in what is a well-oiled machine with big money on the line, as NHL teams look to build a winner by winning games. Prospects gathered in Toronto where teams had the chance to sit down in one-on-one interviews with any player they wanted. Both Rockets players had more than 20 interviews before being put through the paces in some intense fitness testing. “They were trying to get to know what type of person you are and about your background and your family,” said Sissons. “I didn’t get too many outrageous questions like I was expecting.” If the past year has taught hockey’s top prospects anything, it is that finding new players is serious business for NHL teams. They want to build a winner, want to find good players and character kids. To help them, most players have retained agents by the time their draft year rolls around, aiding the players and their families to navigate through the sys-

tem. “It’s pretty intense and of course, it’s a business,” said Sissons. “(NHL teams) are trying to find new players to develop and try to win Stanley Cups. “That’s what they are looking for. It’s a well thought-through business. I’ve been with my agent for a long time. It was a family decision. “As a player, you have someone pushing you and trying to help you get to the next level and just trying to get you started on your career.” ••• Due to a late birthday in his draft year, Sissons is already done with high school. Not so for Damon Severson, who is going through the graduation process in his hometown of Melville, where he will graduate with his friends. That will take place June 28. But this weekend, Severson may have left the homework back home as he travelled to Pittsburgh with his par-

ents and agent. This past week may not have been the most productive week of academics. “You’re going to school everyday and trying to focus on your school work as much as possible,” said Severson earlier this week. “But you’re just counting the days down until you leave. I’m excited to be going down there to see what happens.” Severson is still 17 and that made him eligible to play for Team Canada’s Under-18 team that played in the World U-18 championships in the Czech Republic earlier this year. It was Severson’s first trip overseas and yet another chance to show the hockey world what the puck-moving defenceman has to offer. “That was just a crazy experience, going overseas for the first time and seeing a new culture. It was quite an experience,” he said. “It was nice to play with all the best players around the world. You’re playing against them and the scouts are comparing you to others. You just wanted to make a good impression and play every shift like it’s your last one.” Back in Canada, Severson has been waiting for draft day, with anticipation, waiting to find out where he will be selected. “It’s going to feel like the longest weekend of my life,” he said.

City in Action

the second round of the 2010 draft, says the weekend will be the biggest day in hockey for Sissons and Severson, but it will also allow them to move on to the next stage of the process of becoming a pro. “I think it will be good for them to get it out of the way,” he said. “It’s always in the back of your mind, every time you make a mistake you wonder who was watching. You don’t worry when the good things happen but you do when there is a mistake or you are on for a goal.” ••• So all that is left is one, or possibly two days before Colton Sissons and Damon Severson, as well as countless other players around the province, the country and the world, will find out if an NHL team will give them a shot. Just like the cliche proclaims, it’s going to be a dream come true if and when it happens. “It’s hard to believe,” said Severson. “You’re 17-years-old and you’re getting drafted. It’s a great opportunity.” “It’s definitely surreal,” added Sissons. “I don’t really have my head fully wrapped around it. It’s something every kid dreams of, just to be here and hopefully get drafted is incredible to say the least. I’m enjoying it and I know I’m extremely lucky to be in the shoes I’m in. I’m just trying to enjoy it the best I can.”

COUNCIL HIGHLIGHTS PUBLIC NOTICES Secondary Suites Bylaw

Property Taxes

Council gave first reading to a bylaw that changes zoning for secondary suites. Coming out of the Housing Strategy endorsed by Council in 2011, the secondary suite process was identified as one that could be made more efficient and expand affordable housing options with minimal impact in neighbourhoods. The changes will permit secondary suites in all single-family dwellings in most single-family residential zones. Applicants will only require an Occupancy Permit and current Business Licence, and are no longer required to have a public hearing to rezone the property. The application process is expected to take 2 to 4 weeks, rather than the current 2- to 4-month timeframe for approvals. The full Council Report is available at kelowna.ca/landuse. A public hearing on the subject will be held July 24 at City Hall.

Property owners are reminded that 2012 property taxes must be paid by: Midnight, Tuesday, July 3, 2012.

Environmental Achievement Awards

Taxes that remain outstanding after July 3, 2012 will be subject to a 5% late payment penalty. A second 5% penalty will be imposed on all outstanding current taxes after August 7, 2012. Penalties are legislated under the Community Charter and therefore are not discretionary.

Council directed staff to hold the Environmental Achievement Awards in the fall of 2012. In future years, an environmental award will be presented as part of the annual Civic & Community Awards.

“It’s going to feel like an eternity, just thinking where you are going to go. Just knowing will be a weight off my shoulders.” ••• Hockey folks in Kelowna are pretty familiar with the story of Josh Gorges, arguably the best hockey player Kelowna has ever developed. He’s certainly the most successful. And he’s got the best story. Gorges was expecting to be drafted in the 2001 NHL draft but never heard his name called. It was nothing new for the Kelowna Minor Hockey product. He went undrafted in the WHL bantam draft as well before walking on and helping lead the Rockets to a Memorial Cup. Now 446 NHL games down the road, he’s established himself as a top NHL blueliner and was plus14 over 82 games with the Montreal Canadiens this past season, his fifth full season in Montreal. Kelowna Rockets president and general manager Bruce Hamilton says Gorges story is not new. He says many players get missed in the draft and then it becomes the WHL club’s turn to promote their players. “It becomes a challenge to get them tryouts,” said Hamilton. “They have to come back and prove that the teams were wrong, which has happened many times, like in Gorges’ case.” Hamilton, who watched his son Curtis get drafted by Edmonton in

Taxes can be paid by mail, in person or online at banking institutions, and in person at City Hall. Postmark dates are not accepted as proof of payment. City Hall is open Monday to Friday 8am to 4pm. Deposit boxes are available at the front entrance to City Hall, at the Doyle Avenue parking lot exit, and the Parkinson Recreation Centre. City Hall will be closed Monday, July 2, 2012 for Canada Day. Property taxes can be paid by cash, cheque, money order or debit card. Cheques postdated to July 3, 2012 are accepted.

With most of the city’s capital funding for the next 10 years already allocated to other initiatives, council viewed partnering with the private sector for this project as a viable means to provide a muchdesired public amenity in a cost effective manner. In 2011, the City of Kelowna issued a request for proposals for the project. Proponents were invited to submit designs and business proposals to design, build, operate and maintain the facility for 15 years. The project is being built to help meet the demand for temporary moorage in downtown Kelowna in a way that benefits the boating public, the public at large and downtown business. The estimated total capital cost of the project is over $4 million, almost all of which is being fund-

ager Taylor Van Diest in October 2011 has had his case adjourned until next month to give lawyers for both the Crown and the defence time to go over a series of case-related reports. Matthew Foerster made a brief appearance in Kelowna court via video link Thursday morning from the North Fraser Pretrial Centre in Surrey where he is being held. The case will return to court July 5 in Kelowna. The 26-year-old has been charged with firstdegree murder in relation to Van Diest’s death. The unconscious and fatally wounded 18-year-old was found laying in the bushes near railroad tracks that run through Armstrong on Halloween night last year. She died a short time later in hospital. In addition to murder, Foerster is also facing charges in two unrelated assault cases, attacks on women that include a 2004 assault and home invasion and the sexual assault of a Kelowna escort in 2005. Foerster’s father, 58-year-old Roy Foerster, has been charged with obstruction of justice and accessory after the fact in the Van Diest case.

NEWS ▼ SHANNON MURDER TRIAL

Witness says accused not looking for trouble at party Alistair Waters ASSISTANT EDITOR

The young man who accompanied Trevor Shannon to a Kelowna house party on Vimy Avenue that turned deadly in 2007, says neither he nor Shannon were looking for trouble when they went to the house. Testifying at Shannon’s second-degree murder trial, Darryl Dickson, now 24, said he, his brother Robert and Shannon went to the party to pick up his girlfriend and a friend of hers. And contrary to earlier testimony by other witnesses, Dickson said neither he nor Shannon were drunk or high at the time. He said the pair had been at a barbecue earlier in the day and had a beer or two, but denied there was any marijuana smoked at that gathering. “It was at my boss’s house. His kids were there,” said Dickson in response to Crown prosecutor Duncan Campbell suggesting there was drug use at the barbecue. Dickson, one of three witnesses the defence is calling, said while he was involved in the altercation that led up to the fatal shooting of one of the party guests, Evan Wilkes, 18, he did not see the actual shooting occur. Shannon is accused of shooting Wilkes in the head outside the house as the two argued while other party guests stood around watching. Dickson said he was talking to someone else outside the house— someone who he said was apologizing for the behaviour of others inside moments earlier—when he saw a flash in his peripheral vision and heard a loud gunshot. He said when he turned to look, he saw a young man on the ground, Shannon standing over him with a gun and several others gathered around. He testified that he knew Shannon, 23 at the time, owned a gun and had seen it a few times at Shannon’s home, but never asked him about it. He said he also did not know Shannon was carrying it that night. On the witness stand, Dickson related his version of what happened. He said after getting a call from his girlfriend to come pick her up, the three men arrived at the house to find about

15 others, mostly young men, in the kitchen of the Vimy Avenue home. He said after introducing himself and trying to be social, the mood quickly soured when someone asked what part of town the three lived in. “They did not seem to like the part of town we were from,” he said. After that, a very drunk young man—later identified as Parker Burrows—jumped down off the counter where he was sitting, walked over to Dickson’s girlfriend and slapped her on the bottom, right in front of Dickson. Dickson said that Burrows appeared to want to start a fight with him but he did not want to fight. At that point, Dickson’s brother pushed Burrows and another man then pinned the brother against the wall in an adjoining laundry room area. As Dickson stood by ready to help his brother, he saw a hand, with a can of what he called mace, appear over his right shoulder. He pushed it down and as he looked back, he saw Shannon holding a gun and pointing it in the air telling everybody to get back. It was at that moment that Dickson said the trio felt it was time to leave. “We went outside and everyone from inside followed us out,” he said. Testifying that there was a great deal of yelling and commotion and everything happened so fast, he said it was at that point that one of the people from inside the house came up to him and apologized for the behaviour of the three or four young men who confronted the trio in the kitchen. Earlier testimony said Burrows had grabbed two kitchen knives out of a drawer and lunged at Dickson during their brief altercation. But Dickson said he did not see any knives. Other witnesses said they saw Shannon threaten Burrows with the gun inside and wave it around. But again, Dickson testified he did not see that occur either, just Shannon pointing the gun in the air. After seeing the flash, hearing the shot and seeing Wilkes on the ground, Dickson said he, his brother and his girlfriend fled the scene on foot and were later picked up by a friend.

Shannon also fled on foot and was apprehended by police a short time later nearby. Earlier testimony talked about the confrontation between Wilkes and Shannon, but Dickson said he did not see that take place because he was trying to help his bother and then was trying to find his girlfriend to leave. He said when the can of mace came out, he felt everything was happen-

ing too fast. “That’s when I felt it was threatening.” Earlier in the day, Dr. David Charlesworth, a forensic pathologist testifying for the defence, took issue with a report by the doctor who did the autopsy on Wilkes, calling it “scant.” After reviewing a number of reports and photographs about the wounds to Wilkes’ body, he said because of the steep angle of the wound, it was not a

“gun-pointed-against-thehead-type of contact.” He said it appeared the gun would have come in contact with the baseball cap Wilkes was wearing at the time of the shooting. He also said he could not say if the gun was moving at the time it was discharged. Dr. William Currie, the pathologist who did the autopsy, earlier testified that the bullet did not enter Wilkes skull, in-

stead it moved along it because the gun appeared to have been held at a 15- to 20-degree angle. The bullet created a five-centimetre furrow and, as a result, bone chips were sent into the brain causing it to swell. Wilkes died in hospital four days after being shot. Defence lawyer Brent Bagnall plans to call Shannon to testify today before the defence rests its case. Closing arguments are

expected on Monday or Tuesday. This is the second trial for Shannon after he appealed following the first trial.

Editor correct: Omnibus undermines democratic process

To the editor: Barry Gerding’s point in the Omnibus bill editorial was right on. (Omnibus bill: The PM Doing What He Wants, How He Wants, June 14 Capital News.) Whether this prime minister and his government has the best intentions, and even the best legislation in the world, misses the point. By ramming through this huge bulk of legislation in one giant bill, P.M. Harper is undermining the democratic process in this country and serving us all poorly. As a majority government they could have taken the time to fight out these bills separately and still won, but the point of the Opposition is to point out flaws and make sure Canadians are aware of the intentions and scope of certain bills. It is vital to hear the other side. Gerding however, and Capital News itself, deserves some serious criticism on this same point. Gerding writes,

▼ ASSISTANT SUICIDE

Decision discriminates against the able-bodied To the editor: Re: Assisted Suicide Ban Ruled Unconstitutional, by Capital News reporter Kathy Michaels, June 19. While I wasn’t surprised to read that the B.C. Supreme Court declared the ban on assisted suicide unconstitutional (most Canadians support the decision), I was shocked to read the reasoning that Justice Lynn Smith employed in coming to that conclusion. She called the ban discriminatory. This is simply false. The ban applied to everyone equally—regardless of age, sex, race and, most significantly, physical ability. Under that law, no one, without exception, could legally get assistance in killing themselves. The law was the same for everyone.

Ironically, Justice Smith has proposed a new law that does discriminate: In her ruling, only the terminally ill or those in intolerable pain are eligible for physician-assisted suicide. Able-bodied Canadians who want to die must take matters into their own hands, be it with shotguns or razor blades. Gloria Taylor can die comfortably with a doctor’s assistance while others must jump off bridges. Furthermore, the judge argued that, since suicide is legal and physically disabled people are incapable of killing themselves, they are denied the same rights as able-bodied people. This, however, is clearly false. It’s like saying, “Since running is legal and Mrs. Taylor is incapable of going for a

jog, she has been denied the same rights as able-bodied people.” Taylor has no more been denied the right to kill herself than she has been denied the right to run a marathon. Justice Smith’s confusion has led her, in the name of equality, to give Gloria Taylor a special right that no able-bodied person in Canada has ever had—namely, the right to have a doctor kill her. Perhaps most people don’t notice these bad arguments because they want assisted suicide to be legal, but the B.C. Supreme Court should know better. Gordon Hawkes, Kelowna

To the editor: Re: Assisted suicide. First, I would like to state that I do not see why our government has such a hard time dealing with this topic. They do not seem to have any compunction or reluctance in sending our young and most talented to be killed during a war or on peace keeping missions. Also, at one time capital punishment was meted out with the sanction of our government in the name of justice, even though they may have convicted an innocent person. Thankfully, over time, this law was amended in the name of compassion due to its being cruel, unjust punish-

LETTERS

Conservatives hamper tourism, education Open letter to Prime Minister Stephen Harper: Short-sighted and unfair visa policies are causing serious damage to Canadian businesses and communities. The number of visa rejections for International Gateway Kelowna (Kelowna’s oldest language school est. 2002) has increased by 100 per cent since your government has been in power. In the past year alone, we have had 17 Colombians (mainly teens), seven Indians (mainly teens and two travel agents), two Russians, seven Chinese (mainly teens), two Mexicans, two Pakistani (teens), one Vietnamese and one Czech student rejected. Numerous international travel agencies, colleges, universities and schools who previously promoted Canada first to their clients, now sell Canada far down the list after Australia, New Zealand, the UK, Ireland, the USA, Belize, South Africa, Malta, the Philippines, Malaysia, Cyprus and Singapore. The main reason for this is the high rate of visa rejections, followed by the strong Canadian dollar. Many of these agents and representatives no longer believe that Canada is

the best place in the world for language travel, education and tourism. There are many other options available to their clients and they feel selling Canada just isn’t worth the hassle. I have specific testimonials to back this up. In the past we have asked Kelowna-Lake Country MP Ron Cannan for assistance with these matters and to look into visa rejections on our behalf. We gave up asking since he answered all of our visa related questions incorrectly. He actually said he doesn’t understand what the problem is as “all international students need a visa to study in Canada.” Actually, there are at least 30 countries that can visit Canada on a tourist visa and study for up to 24 weeks. Moreover, he never mentioned that he could check a student’s rejection status with the bar code on their rejection letter. Jinny Sims (NDP) brought this matter to our attention recently during her visit to our school. This begs the question: Is Ron Cannan incompetent, ill informed or just plain doesn’t care about local business matters or concerns? To combat the increase in visa rejections due to your government’s policies, we opened

a new campus in Belize in 2010. To date, we have never had a visa rejection for Belize and most visas are approved in less than 10 days. We were considering opening another Canadian location but there is no point at this time so we are now looking at the USA and/or Malaysia. This means a further loss in revenue and jobs for Canadians directly as a result of your policies. Our marketing team has traveled to more than 60 countries in order to promote our school and Kelowna. This is likely more than you and most of your party combined. We know a thing or two about international tourism. Did you know that Australia receives approximately 20 per cent of its GNP from international students? Canada is far down the list on this one including New Zealand (population four million). Isn’t it time for Canada to catch up, to create jobs for teachers, staff, and communities? We will never catch up if you keep imposing and increasing these draconian visa laws. Dale Lockhart, International Gateway, Kelowna

A Gift in Memory Check that your property tax matches neighbours Makes a Difference

To the editor: l Your property tax, due July 5, is based on your January 2012 assessment. Are you paying more taxes this year than neighbours with similar properties? The West Kelowna tResidents’ Association has evaluated local assessments by the BC Assessment Authority over the past three years. We conclude that at the neighbourhood level the assessments are often neither t

consistent nor fair. However, every home owner has the opportunity to compare his/her property with the assessed values of neighbours. This will aid them in determining whether or not their assessments are consistent with those in their own neighbourhood. As you pay your property taxes, perhaps you may wish to review the assessment information at this time in preparation for a more careful re-

view in January 2013. The District of West Kelowna (DWK) has made this process very convenient. We are listing the steps to allow you to compare assessment values from your home computer. Enjoy the power from information. 1. Open the DWK home page 2. Click on the icon “Maps” at the top right corner 3. Click on “Go to Online Mapping System,” allow one minute for the

system to format 4. Type in your address at the top right hand corner 5. Click on the house image. View details and property lines. 6. Click View “Additional Details” and then “Assessment Summary” 7. To obtain assessment information on neighbours, type in their address (see Step 4). We encourage new seniors to look carefully at their DWK tax document.

Please note that a person who turns 65 in 2012 (born in 1947) is entitled to the “C” column grant which gives an additional reduction of $275. Look for the payment schedule listed in three columns; namely A (no grant), B (basic grant if under 65) and C (65 and over added grant). Joseph Lavigne, West Kelowna Residents’ Association

ment and its finality. Second, there is no problem when it comes to pulling the plug on a person who is on a respirator and the family has decided to end that person’s life in order to stop the suffering when there is no hope of them every recovering and this is done with the doctor’s assistance. Yet, when it comes to someone who is suffering intolerable pain with no chance of ever getting better or having a better quality of life there is a real reluctance. What one decides to do with their life, especially near the end or suffering

greatly should be left up to them. No one, whether it be for religious or mortality reasons should have the right to tell them how they should die if that is what they are requesting and are free from mental disorder. One has to walk a mile in their shoes to really understand their situation no matter how compassionate one might be. Also, there does not seem to be a problem with putting a pet down to end its suffering with the thought being: We are doing this for them because we really care and love them and this is why we must do this. It justifies and soothes the guilt that

burdens us in doing such an empathetic act. As for the slippery slope hypothesis, I am sure laws can be put in place just like they have in the Netherlands and in some of the United States and other places so that this does not become a factor. Times are changing and due to the fact that we are living longer and more people will be inflicted with incurable or pain causing maladies, the time has come when one’s personal rights and requests have to be considered in how they exit this world with dignity. John D. Grant, Kelowna

tic equivalent of this suppression by providing a regular column to our local MP and our duly elected MLAs. I do not object to that, as it is an important public service to hear our politicians discuss and defend the government’s political agenda. What I have never understood is why the Cap News does not make any effort to put in columns from members of

the Opposition parties critiquing government policies. It’s fine to point out the Harper government’s flaws in suppressing opposition voices, but a tad hypocritical when important local media do exactly the same thing. It’s time we started hearing from the Opposition on these bills. Devon Brooks, Kelowna

Ziplining naked for breast cancer awareness Wade Paterson STAFF REPORTER

Each of the last 23 years have been a gift for Helen Saunders. In the late 1980s, the 73-year-old Kelowna woman discovered a lump in her breast. She claims that early detection is what saved her life, and she is quick to share her knowledge with other women. “I knew there was

something wrong with my body, but I didn’t know what it was until I discovered the lump,” said Saunders. “Women need to learn to self-examine for early detection and to get to know their own body.” To help spread that message, Saunders took off her clothes, put on a harness and felt the wind against her skin as she soared 380 feet above the ground Thursday.

“It went so fast, but oh God was it terrific,” said Saunders after her firstever zipline ride. “I’d do it again in a heartbeat.” Eighty-three other women also shed their clothes and joined Saunders for the ZipZone Naked 100 at ZipZone Adventure Park in Peachland. The event required all participants to raise a minimum $100 for the

Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. In total, the 84 participants managed to raise $15,016; Saunders managed to raise $500 of that total on her own. The naked ziplining fundraiser started last year when members of SS Rodeo Rollergirls roller derby team approached ZipZone owners with the idea. “We had some girls in our derby leagues that

Last year eight girls zipped in the buff and raised $1,500 for breast cancer research; this year SS Rodeo Rollergirls upped their contribution to $1,700 and the number of participants increased tenfold. “We are intrigued that there are so many women out there that are willing to come out and give community support to fellow women who have cancer. We feel so liberated and excited—the energy here is amazing,” said Grant, minutes before her team took off on the zipline. Many of the women participating in Thursday’s event had never been on a zipline before— with or without clothes. Chris Harkness was one of the rookies taking part in the fundraiser. She said that the event showcases how far we’ve come in society. “I’m really happy about how uninhibited the women are. There are girls totally naked and they’re doing it for a good cause. There is nothing sexual here,” said Harkness. Kevin Bennett, president of the adventure park, said that although the total raised was slight-

June is Brain Injury Awareness month, so the local branch of BrainTrust Canada found it an appropriate time Wednesday to remind cyclists of the need to wear helmets. Braintrust’s helmet safety program is intended to decrease the incidence of brain injury, as City of Kelowna bylaw officers and RCMP bike squad members continue to communicate helmet safety using education, socialization and enforcement. The program takes place throughout most of the year on Kelowna streets, parks and high traffic areas, and will include the RCMP Gator Patrol and EZGO vehicles that can tour areas a car cannot go such as on the beaches. As part of the program, coupons for helmets are provided to youth and others who don’t have access to obtaining one. These helmets are purchased at a discount from Nutcase Helmets, whose brand message is “love your brand” which aligns with BrainTrust Canada’s focus on brain injury prevention. In addition, coupons that are affectionately termed “positive tickets” are distributed by the city bylaw and RCMP members to youth who display positive safety skills.

“I have lived in Kelowna since I was a child and I have always taken pride in our city having a strong focus on physical activity, however it saddens me to see some cyclists still not wearing helmets and not taking their safety seriously,” said Mayor Walter Gray. “First, it is the law, and through the work of BrainTrust Canada I have come to understand that helmets prevent up to 85 per cent of brain injuries—it is a simple thing to do that goes a long way.” Dr. Peter Barss, medical health officer, for Interior Health added: “Have you ever thought about what could happen if you or your family experiences brain injury? What seems a minor injury sometimes leads to a lifetime of suffering for the injured person, family and friends. “Possible consequences are loss of employment, homelessness, divorce, addictions and personality changes, among others. To have a ‘brain healthy summer,’ it’s important to think about the sports you choose to lower your risk for brain injury, or to take part in these activities at safer locations such as riding on paths separated from motor vehicles, lowering speeds, choosing safer times of day and avoiding dangerous combinations such as children and ATVs.”

Landmark 8 offers unique movie viewing experience It’s big, it’s loud and it’s ultra-comfortable. The latest and greatest marriage of sound and picture has come together at the new Landmark 8 movie theatre which opens today in West Kelowna. Located at the Lake Okanagan Shopping Centre adjacent to the new Westside Road overpass, the Landmark 8 represents a unique viewing experience for local moviegoers not available yet anywhere else in Canada. It is the debut location for the Landmark Cinema group’s new Xtreme brand theatre auditorium concept. The stadium seating style means rows of seats in rising tiers, providing viewers an unobstructed view of the screen and more ample legroom than normally provided in movie theatres The screen itself for theatre 8, the 255-seat Xtreme showcase of the

Landmark theatre multiplex, stands 60 feet wide and three storeys high, reflecting a Christie 2430 4K digital projector for unprecedented picture definition. And the sound system features Barco’s Aura 11.1 high definition sound system, the first system of its kind installed in a Canadian theatre. Neil Campbell, the coowner of Landmark Cinema, which has a theatre chain base of operations in Western Canada headquartered in Calgary, said the sound system takes movie viewing to a new frontier. “We went from mono to stereo, which many people mistakenly don’t realize still remained one dimensional sound, “Campbell said. “Then along came surround sound which went to two dimensional, and now the Aura 11.1 takes us to three dimensional.� For sound, it adds the

element of height to sound from the right and left side of a theatre, so the affect of a helicopter flying across the screen makes it sound like it is flying right above your head while sitting in your seat. Campbell said the 3-D experience is not going away in modern movies, and the Landmark 8 Xtreme presentation is a sign of the future that people sitting in a cinema will come to expect. As for the other seven theatres in Landmark 8, ranging in size from 100 to 284 seats, they will be equipped with a 7.1 Ultrastereo sound system, stadium seating with comfortable, high back chairs. Speaking at a media presentation of the Xtreme theatre on Wednesday, Westbank First Nation Chief Robert Louie said his band is proud of its latest commercial development along Highway 97 and to be able to house a unique move going experience for residents both in West Kelowna and Kelowna. One of the considerations behind choosing that location for Landmark Cinemas will be the prospect of drawing people from both communities, as well as appealing to summer tourists during one of the busiest revenue generating times of the

Campbell said the Capital Theatre in West Kelowna, also owned by Landmark, will be rebranded as the Encore Capital, and will showcase second-run movies already released but not yet out on video and DVD. Campbell said admission prices will be $3 during the day and $4 at night, with special rate days for families and seniors. As for the Landmark 8 price range, tickets for the Xtreme theatre will be $12.99 for regular movies and $15.99 for 3D, and be able to buy tickets and reserve your seats online. Prices in the other Landmark 8 theatres will be $11.25 a ticket.

NEWS ▼ KELOWNA TRUCK DRIVER

Safe driving record earns honour Scott Porritt, of Kelowna, received the 2012 B.C. Driver of the Year award at the B.C. Trucking Association’s annual management conference earlier this month in Whistler. Porritt received the award for his spotless 27year driving record, 20 of which he has served with his current employer, TMS Transportation Ltd.

Volvo Trucks Canada and BCTA sponsor the provincial Driver of the Year award to recognize and promote safe driving among professional drivers. In addition to excellent driving records, award winners have often distinguished themselves through service to their communities and acts of bravery.

Since he began his professional driving career at the age of 21, Porritt has maintained a clean driving record with no accidents, moving violations or preventable injuries. Louise Yako, president and CEO of the BCTA, says that the industry is justly proud of drivers like Porritt who move goods where they need to go, quietly, efficiently and

Help your visitors travel worry-free. With the summer vacation season drawing near, some of us will be hosting family and friends from abroad and looking to make their stay as enjoyable and comfortable as possible. There are a number of things you can do to take good care of your guests, like ensuring they are properly covered in case they need medical attention during their visit. Before they arrive, discuss the importance of having travel insurance protection for the duration of their stay. Medical expenses for nonBritish Columbian residents are not covered by the provincial government. If your visitors arrive with no travel insurance protection, BCAA’s Visitors to Canada Travel Insurance coverage can provide up to $300,000 in emergency medical protection. BCAA’s Visitors to Canada Travel Insurance offers coverage for items such as hospital expenses and prescription drugs, as well as other options like trip cancellation insurance. In addition, coverage is worldwide (except in the visitor’s home country), as long as the majority of their time is spent visiting in Canada. Not only should visitors consider protecting themselves with travel insurance, in some cases it is a

TRAVEL INSURANCE WITH

LORA JOHN requirement. For example, the Parent and Grandparent Super Visa allows relatives to visit for up to two years, and travel insurance coverage is required for the application. BCAA’s Visitors to Canada Travel Insurance can be purchased for visitors coming to Canada on a Super Visa, to meet the application requirement. It pays to do your research and seek out the right travel insurance policy. Nonresident health coverage rates vary by province, type of treatment and the patient’s condition, but in general, a daily hospitalization rate can be quite costly. Call or visit your nearest BCAA location to learn more about how BCAA Visitors to Canada Travel Insurance can help protect your guests from costly medical expenses, or go to bcaa.com/visitors to learn more.

safely. “I know that TMS Transportation regards Scott very highly for his professionalism, commitment to safety and positive representation of their company and our industry,” Yako said. Porritt worked with Johnston Terminals as a driver for Sears Home Deliveries and continued to serve with TMS Transportation when it took over Johnson’s contract in 1992. In 2001, Porritt moved to Kelowna with TMS Transportation to provide home delivery service for Home Depot, which had just opened in the city. He is now the senior driver in the Interior for TMS and provides training for new employees. Outside of work, Scott has been an on-call member of the Kelowna Fire Department since the beginning of 2005. He is trained on emergency vehicle driving reg-

With the Kelowna Fire Department, Porritt has participated in numerous community events, training programs and weekly practices. Over the years of professional driv-

Food bank braced for increasing usage Kelowna Community Food Bank usage in May is up 12 per cent over last year, reflecting the slow economic recovery and growing income disparity. The food bank distributed 1,232 hampers, up from the 1,104 in May 2011. “Youth and working families continue to struggle despite the so-called economic recovery,” said

Vonnie Lavers, food bank executive director. “Sixty-one new files were opened, up from the 40 opened last May.” Food bank numbers reflect the wider economic uncertainties and inequities. Lavers notes the big jump in May’s jobless rate as more people continue to look for work. “We are seeing the results here. Kelowna’s jobless rate re-

mains higher than the national average, especially for youth, with unemployment hovering around 15 per cent for the 18-24 demographic.” Lavers argues the gap between the rich and poor continues to grow due to a lack of meaningful employment, the absence of a living wage, lack of affordable housing and the rising cost of living. “Look at the Central Okanagan Foundation’s Vital Signs 2011 report. Last year, they gave fair to poor grades across a number of social indicators including housing, income, work and supports for children and youth. Nothing has changed; in fact it’s getting worse,” Lavers said. Meanwhile, both the prime minister and the Governor of the Bank of Canada are alarmed by the deepening European

debt crisis. “They warn of dire consequences for our economy. With our high household debt, more middle class and working families will find themselves using food banks if interest rates jump and unemployment suddenly spikes,” Lavers warned. The food bank is preparing for the worst, she said. “We are not waiting for the storm to hit, we need to act now.” Lavers says the Food Bank’s operations budget is non-government funded. “Our families depend on the community for support. Christmas In July is our major summer campaign. It is a monthlong event to help remind our community that the spirit of giving should be year round. This year, in light of troubling economic signs, we need everyone to give.”

t can’t be that difficult for outdoors people to keep an eye out for butterflies and turtles, and the effort can be vital to conservation of species and to resource managers. There are groups and individual biologists interested particularly in the monarch butterfly and in the native Western painted turtle, as well as the invasive red-eared slider turtle. So, if you spot a turtle in your travels around B.C., look closely to determine whether it’s a native Western painted turtle or the red-eared slider, which is a species commonly sold in pet shops and sometimes released by irresponsible owners in a local wetland, where it often out-competes native turtles for food and habitat. Sliders have a red ‘ear’ on the side of their face, while the native turtle does not, and the underneath shell of the painted turtle is red or or-

The name of the pond is inadequate information. Instead use your GPS to locate it or take a photo and locate it using google earth; Google imapBC. Even if you see a pond or wetland and see no turtles, that information is also helpful. Add your name and contact information and email the data to Orville at: Orville.Dyer@gov.bc.ca Painted turtles are blue-listed provincially and of special concern na-

tionally. This is the northern extreme of their habitat and ponds and wetlands are disappearing, so habitat is a concern. For conservation purposes, any information you can add to this survey would be helpful in completion of a management plan for this species. There’s also a survey of monarch butterflies, their eggs and larva underway, particularly relevant because there is apparently an exceptionally early migration this year of monarchs from their overwintering grounds in Mexico, with some being reported as far north as Edmonton, Alberta this year. Don Davis, of Monarch Watch, who is also secretary of the Monarch Butterfly Fund, writes from Toronto that he has been studying and tagging monarchs since 1968 and local observations would be most helpful. He requests reports

and photographs be recorded at the reporting website: ebutterfly.ca including the date, name of observer and location of the sighting, with the closest town or village, or latitude/longitude. Milkweed is a key plant in monarch butterfly reproduction, yet it’s a plant that has long been considered a weed by farmers, so there are only patches left around the

There’s also a new site for reporting local sightings of other butterflies: www.BCButterflyAtlas.ca/ Mind you, all our efforts at citizen science have been negated this week by our federal government stepping backwards in time by gutting our Fisheries Act and its provisions to protect those resources from destruction and replacing the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act with a weaker version—all part of what was ostensibly a budget bill—but which actually contained dozens and dozens of amendments to totally-unrelated legislation as a way of ramming those changes through parliament. Such sneaky and underhanded behaviour is a most despicable way to run a country. Judie Steeves writes about outdoors issues for the Capital News.

Reminiscing from past columns about Father’s Day

I celebrated Father’s Day on June 17 by whacking golf balls around a course with some friends, swapping laughs and lies, and swilling a few frothy ones. Later, Tez and I shared

a wonderful night and as we relaxed, a swarm of Father’s Day memories came back. I could not shake some of the images, some which I’d portrayed in print several years before,

and finally I got up and archived the column. Here it is again because it means as much today as it did six years ago… *** Snapshots of fathers I know, or use to know, start to flick through my mind… A young boy, eyes bigger than saucers, leans back in the chair and stares at the clenched fist in front of him. “If you mash your corn into your potatoes again at the table, like some sort of pig, you’ll eat this too,” the large man behind the fist screams. The man with the big hands that can be so cold and brutal, points to the door and says, “Get out of my house.” That sounds good to me. Dad is pretty cruel. *** A young boy, eyes bigger than saucers, leans over the boat and stares at the giant fish Dad has caught in the net for him. “Hold the rod steady Charlie-boy, you’ve got yourself a fine fish,” he grins. “Now then would you like to let him go or keep your first fish?” The man with the big hands that can be so warm and kind explains that he usually throws back the fish so they can go on living. That sounds good to me. Dad is pretty cool. *** Paddy has no clue I am here. I’ve been watching him from the booth where I am sitting at an information fair. For more than an hour, he patiently and lovingly chats with his little girl, explaining certain things, asking her questions, sharing some laughter. From my distance, I cannot hear a word they say, but the loving smiles (even when his little girl is not looking at him) scream out volumes of wonderful vibes. The amazing thing is that Paddy is that lov-

HODGE PODGE

Charlie Hodge ing with not just his kids, but also a special friend’s child. In fact, all kids love Paddy. Seems his heart beats as solid and true as his drum meter. *** Jay is a Vancouver environmentalist and it’s an intense meeting he is trying to chair. Everyone around the table has issues and they want to be heard NOW, including his very young son. The youngster’s complaint is about a dirty diaper and he’s not about to take it anymore. While other fathers may well have lost it in the chaos of the moment, Jay smiles at the passionate adults and says, “Folks I understand your feelings and your urgency. Believe me I want to change the world as well, but right now, for all our sakes, I’d prefer to change this diaper.” Then with all the patience and love that one can comprehend he does so. Only when the youngster’s world has returned to gurgles, grins, and smiles does the rest of the world matter. *** Tom pats his young minor lacrosse players on the back, warmly rubs their hair, and tells them to go out and shake hands with the opponent. He looks at me and grins, and then hugs his youngest son who played well in goal. I watch him watch the kids and then he wipes his eyes briefly. It’s his last game as coach; he will not be back next year. He’s tired. The paleness of his

face and the energy it takes to move this day has run out—and each day his energy runs out quicker. Later, on a riverbank, we sit and share his worries. “I gotta admit that I am pretty scared of dying, Chas. I’m not in a hurry but I guess that doesn’t matter,” he says attempting to grin. “But what bugs me is that no nine and 11year old boys should have to grow up without a father. We are so close. It just doesn’t seem fair to them.” Tom stands on the edge of the bank and tosses pebbles gently into the water. The ripple effect seems symbolically ominous. I have no answers. *** A trained eye can spot a singer in a crowd just by watching them talk, or even swallow. A side profile will often reveal a pronounced voice box that moves significantly. On this particular hot summer afternoon I am standing near my good friend Barry and while he is staring at the stage I am staring at him - or more accurately, his throat. I’m at an advantage because I KNOW that he’s a singer, but that is not why I’m staring. It is because his throat is sort of trembling and I am worried. Suddenly the tears welling up in his eyes and the huge brimming grin on his face explain the problem. He has a lump in his throat. “Look at her—isn’t she something, Chuck,” he beams watching his daughter singing on the stage. More than a decade before he wrote a hauntingly beautiful tune titled Julia Rose for his little girl. Now she waves back to Dad from stage. The circle continues— and the beat goes on.

Kelowna engineering student makes a difference in Rwanda Kelowna engineering student Emma Houiellebecq has had a growing passion for development work, and wanted to use her engineering skills and knowledge to make a positive impact in developing countries. Last week, Houiellebecq returned from a project trip to Kigali, Rwanda, where she was able to do just that. She traveled to Rwanda with a team of architects and engineers from across North America who volunteered their time with Engineering Ministries International to design a ministry centre for the Wellspring Foundation for Education. Wellspring works with Rwandan edu-

cators to develop schools in Rwanda and to empower Rwandan teachers. “I helped to perform a topographic survey of the land, conduct soil percolation tests, calculate the fresh water and wastewater demands, and design the rainwater collection system,” Houiellebecq said. “I was able to learn so much on that trip through observation and by workingalongside professional engineers. It was important for us to see the quality of local construction practices and locallysourced materials in order for our designs to be realistic and applicable to Kigali.” Houiellebecq is currently interning with eMi Canada in Calgary.

Plants include dwarf Arctic willow, ‘Gold Sword’ yucca,’ ‘Vancouver Gold’ broom and bulbous oat grass. their gardens. Both were full of birds, butterflies and pollinators, had food gardens and many natureinteractive elements for the children to participate in and learn from. In one garden the plum tree was full of black aphids which were being left alone for the black and red ladybug larvae to devour. Apparently this happens most years and the aphids will be cleaned up in a week. It was a delight to volunteer in Louba Kruger’s beautiful garden last Sat-

urday. Over 25 years, and many changes, the garden has evolved into a showcase of lush, healthy plants. It has amazing soil considering the rocky, weedy mess she started with. Her secret is leaf mulch. She collects leaves into moistened mounds where she wants to plant next year and covers them with mulch. Over winter they rot, creating rich soil ready for planting into.

Beyond was the immaculate, English-style fruit and vegetable garden. Covering one third of their property, it still produced more than enough to feed a family of six even though we had long since left home. Mom and Dad (Vitie and Art Hughes-Games) enjoyed sharing gardening tips and stories, identifying plants, and being with other appreciative gardeners. It was a very special day. Today would have been their 65th wedding anniversary. Dad is still gardening at 91 but sadly Mom died 14 years ago. The gardens that stand out, in my years of garden tour memories, were created by homeowners and showed a great love for the plants themselves and for gardening with nature. This year there were several of these. I was delighted to see two young families show

Protecting environment and raising money It’s a time honoured tradition with a twist. Along with the usual fundraising activities at the United Way of the Central and South Okanagan/Similkameen, there is a new and exciting way to raise money that benefits the environment as well. United Way is tackling the growing problem of electronic waste and literally turning it into cash by participating in the Think Recycle program, which gathers unwanted electronics, including cell phones, print cartridges,

digital cameras, laptops, Ipods and MP3 players from the community and exchanges them for money. Greentec, the company behind Think Recycle, then collects, processes and recycles the electronics, diverting the electronic waste from our landfills. “Our usual annual campaign is fantastic, but the Think Recycle program directly protects the environment and is a great additional program to further assist our fundraising

efforts for our community,� said Jennifer Park, director of resource development. “This way we can stop filling up our land fills with electronic waste and fundraise to further assist people in our community at the same time.� More than 300 million empty printer cartridges are generated in North America every year, or 900 million pounds of waste that can potentially end up in our landfills. In addition to giving money to the United Way for unwanted consumer

electronics, Greentec also donates funds to have one tree planted by Tree Canada for every 24 qualifying electronics that United Way returns. The Think Recycle program has paid for the planting of more than 50,000 trees effectively removing 8,700 tonnes of carbon from the atmosphere. The public can drop off unwanted consumer electronics at the United Way office at 202-1456 St. Paul St. and the Capital News office, 2475 Enterprise Way.

Dr. C. Hammoud, Ph.D. recommends:

Winfield-Oyama link upgrade moving forward

I

n my last quarterly construction update, I compared a highway upgrading project to an iceberg, in that the vast majority of work is behind the scenes. I still can’t think of a more appropriate analogy. My goal with these updates is to make sure residents see “under the surface” on the project to upgrade Highway 97 between Winfield and Oyama. Nobody enjoys traffic delays due to construction, but hopefully that frustration is eased if you know more about the project and its progress. The Winfield-Oyama project involves constructing a nine-kilometre four-lane highway west of the existing twolane section of Highway 97 between the two Lake Country communities. Construction began on May 28, 2011, and is scheduled to be completed in the summer of 2013. As of May, total construction was almost halfway completed.

Norm Letnick Drilling, blasting, excavations and embankment construction is underway. The scope of this project is vast, and has involved huge amounts of material. Consider this: over 1,000,000 cubic metres of material have been excavated, moved and placed in embankments to date – which represents approximately 50 per cent of the total quantities on this project. That includes about 470,000 cubic metres of rock and 600,000 cubic metres of soils. As you may have noticed, construction on several of the overpasses is underway. The Gatzke Road Overpass is approximate-

ly 60 per cent complete; the Woods Lake Overpass is approximately 40 per cent complete; and the Recreational Underpasses for Old Mission Road and Lake Country Access are approximately 80 per cent complete. As you may recall, the $40.83 million construction contract was awarded to Nanaimo’s Windley Contracting (2010) Ltd. on March 25, 2011. The overall project budget is $77.9 million, with a $33.6 million contribution from the federal government under the Building Canada Plan. Construction on all phases and aspects of the project will continue until the expected completion next year. As always, if you have any questions or would like more information, please don’t hesitate to contact me via my constituency office, or via social media on Facebook or Twitter. Norm Letnick is the Liberal MLA for Kelowna-Lake Country.

SNORING?

SLEEP APNEA?

As recommended by Dr. Gifford-Jones M. D. Often snorers also have sleep apnea which causes being tired all day, high blood pressure, heart attacks, strokes, irregular heartbeats (per FDA website). Millions suffer needlessly and can stop their nightly ordeals. To my surprise, after taking Bell Snoring & Sleep Apnea Relief #23 I really didn’t snore or gasp for air anymore. I sleep through the night and feel rested and refreshed in the morning. Mark Wilson, 40, Hudson, NH  Sleep apnea capsules worked first night! For last 15 years I had sleep apnea and my doctor made me buy a CPAP machine, which I could not use. Finally Bell #23 helped the first night and every night thereafter. Like a miracle. Unbelievable. Karen Braun, 67, Glace Bay, NS  For 20 #23 years I was waking up frequently gasping for air. During the day I would start napping every time I would sit down, because I was tired. Since taking Bell #23 sleeping 6 hours is heaven. It made a substantial change in my life. Mary C. Myrick, 62, Jackson, MS It is such a joy not having to use the CPAP machine. I have had sleep apnea for 10 years. Using Bell#23, my wife says there is no more snoring or stoppage of breathing. It is such a joy to be able to roll to left or right with no hose or mask to deal with. Thank you Bell for a great relief. I suggest anyone with these problems to try it. You will be overjoyed with the results. Wayne Burse, 63, Beamsville, ON.  Lost my husband because of sleep apnea in 2011. I had sleep apnea, too. I was scared to go to bed and have an heart attack like my husband. After taking Bell #23 I can now sleep for 5-6 hours peacefully without gasping for air. A blessing.

ACNE

By Dr. C. Hammoud Ph.D.

Eczema Psoriasis Rosacea Rashes

I had terrible Acne for 3 years and tried Benzoyl Peroxide, Proactiv, Aloe Vera and others. After 4 days taking the Bell natural product #60 it started to clear up my skin. My skin changed from terrible to beautiful. Mylene Theriault, 19, Sorel-Tracy, QC In 2 days my son’s face completely cleared up of acne. My son is 15 and suffered for 3 years. We used many products like laser, Clean Clear, Neem that did not work or burned his skin. Veronica Marden, Seminole, TX Unbelievable acne free beautiful skin Last couple of years I had acne and tried every product like Murad, Proactiv and antibiotics. Results with #60 were unbelievable. Thanks for giving me beautiful skin and my self-esteem. Nelisa Royer, 28, Doral, FL Within 6 days eczema cleared up completely. I believe #60 addresses the cause internally instead of the symptoms. Latifa Boutshik, 43, North York, ON I had severe psoriasis over 95% of my body. Last 5 years I have stunned every doctor and dermatologist. I spent tons of money on remedies. After I got Bell #60, I’ve never seen anything work as fast in my life. Within 2 days I saw my skin clearing up. I’m speechless. It was inexpensive compared with what I spent before.

SPORTS ▼ RUGBY

Cdn team eyes Curry Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

Jared Curry could be getting his first taste of international rugby this summer. The 18-year-old from Kelowna has been identified by the Canada Wolverines men’s program as one of the country’s top young prospects for Rugby League competition. Curry hopes to play for Canada in its first test match of the season next month in Toronto against Jamaica. A fullback, Curry has been playing with the Kelowna Crows this spring in the first season of B.C. Rugby League play in the Okanagan, and has proven to be a quick study. “It is a huge compliment for the talents displayed by Jared in the early rounds of the BCRL championship and how quickly he has picked up the necessary skills to be a success in this

code of rugby,” said Paul O’Keefe, the Canadian Rugby League Development Manager for B.C. “I think that Jared could have the potential to play Rugby League professionally but will be fully tested when stepping up to international games. “For someone so young, he is still available to play under 19s,” added O’Keefe, “Curry is showing some great skills not only with the ball in his hands but is extremely capable when it comes to defending.” Between watching him live on the pitch and on video, the Wolverines liked enough of what they saw to select him as a strong candidate for future international matches with the Canadian team. Not surprisingly, Curry would be thrilled to make the final roster which will be announced early next month as Canada prepares to take on Jamaica on July 21. “Hopefully I’ll make

it and get a chance to start with the Wolverines,” said the 5-foot-9, 170-pound Curry. “Until then I’ll just try to work hard and play hard and see what happens. Even if I don’t make it, I’m still young and I know I’ll have another shot.” Curry, a graduate of Rutland Secondary, has been playing competitive rugby since Grade 8 and has displayed a passion for the game ever since. “I like the rough stuff, I like hitting and I don’t mind getting hit,” Curry said of his love for the sport. “I like the camaraderie, too, and how rugby teams are like family.” Curry recently finished up his first year at UBC Okanagan where he is studying psychology, with a minor in philosophy.

Weber runner-up for NHL’s 2012 Norris Trophy Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

His best season yet in the NHL was good enough for Nashville’s Shea Weber to be nominated as the game’s best defenceman for the second year in a row. According to voters, it wasn’t quite good enough for the former Kelowna Rockets’ rearguard to win the Norris Trophy. Weber, along with

Boston’s Zdeno Chara, finished as runners-up to Ottawa’s Erik Karlsson as the NHL’s top blue liner in 2011-12. In a close decision, Karlsson earned 66 firstplace votes from NHL writers and 1,069 overall points. Weber garnered 49 first-place votes and 1,057 points, while Chara was deemed the best by 32 voters and earned 950 points overall.

Shea Weber It was the second year in a row as a finalist

for Weber who finished second only to Detroit’s Niklas Lidstrom in 2011. Karlsson, a 22-yearold Swede, had 19 goals and 59 assists for the Senators, 25 points more than the next highest scoring defenceman. Weber, 26, a native of Sicamous, scored 19 goals, added 30 assists and had a +21 rating in 78 games with the Predators. Earlier in the week, Nashville Predators as-

sistant general manager Paul Fenton had this to say about Weber: “He can be the best,” Fenton told the Nashville Tennessean. “His drive, his passion, all those things he brings to the game—his leadership, defending ability, offensively his shot, his vision—they’re just going to keep getting better,” Fenton said. “If that happens he’s going to be in the running

every year for this trophy.” Weber played parts of four WHL seasons with the Rockets, compiling 26 goals and 91 points in 190 games. The 6-foot-4, 230-pounder was a tournament all-star at the 2004 Memorial Cup in Kelowna, and the WHL’s playoff MVP in 2005. Weber was a secondround draft choice, 49th overall, by the Predators

in 2004. Weber, the Preds’ captain, was vying to become the second former Rockets player to win the Norris trophy in the last three seasons. Chicago’s Duncan Keith won the award in 2010. Weber’s future in Nashville is in question, as the former Rocket is a restricted free agent.

Kelowna United teams to B.C.s Several Kelowna United soccer teams are heading to provincials after the Thompson Okanagan Youth Soccer League playoffs. The Under-18 boys along with the U-15, 16, and 18 girls teams qualified with wins in the playoffs last weekend.

U-15 GIRLS Having earned a bye into the Finals of the Thompson Okanagan Championships on Sunday, the Kelowna United U-15 girls played Vernon United for a shot at prov-

incials. After losing last week to its rivals, Kelowna United prevailed 3-1. Emma Johnson and Brianne Mapson scored in the first half, while defenders gave up little ground. After Vernon made it 2-1 Johnson sealed the win with her second of the game.

Penticton continued to pressure Kelowna, but strong defence and goaltending from Chloe Grayson kept Penticton from scoring the equalizer and sent the team to provincials.

U-13 GIRLS After beating Vernon 4 - 3 to advance to the championship, the Under-13 girls fell 2-1 to Penticton in the final. After some hard work and a tight final game, Kelowna tied the score at 1-1 only to have the Pinnacles score later to win and qualify for the provincials.

▼ TOFC

Regional U15 team earns a win and a draw over weekend The Thompson Okanagan Football Club U15 boys turned in a solid two days of play last weekend on the Lower Mainland earning a win and a draw. On Saturday against Coquitlam Metro Ford, Haris Djelmo (Kamloops) opened up the scoring in the two-minute mark with a beautiful left-footed volley which caught the Coquitlam keeper off guard. After Coquitlam responded to make it 1-1, TOFC defenders Kole Lawrence (Kamloops) Max Morgan (Lake Country) and Menno Burnett (Vernon) worked

with the midfielders Zack Sousa (Kelowna), Lucas Ross (Vernon) and Keenan Wallace (Kamloops) to keep the ball up field. The half ended in a one to one tie. Coquitlam started the second half with a quick goal on a break away to take the lead. TOFC leveled the score as Tanner Farber (Kamloops) sent a high ball to Isaac Koch (West Kelowna) who brought the ball down with his chest and sent a side footed shot past the Coquitlam keeper to bring the score to 2-2. Several failed attempts

on keeper Carson Murray (Kelowna) kept the score at a tie until late in the game. Djelmo headed the ball over a sleeping Coquitlam back line where Kristian Blumenschein (Kelowna) took a quick touch and slotted the ball into the bottom right corner to push TOFC to a 3-2 win. In Sunday’s action against Vancouver Island Wave, the TOFC U15 boys played to a 1-1 draw. Other members of the regional team include, Josh Coehlo, Nolan Fenrich, Keegan Lawrence, Lubo Magdolen, Clay

Malkoske, Austin Pietramala, Coke TrawinHeinrich from Kamloops. The team is coached by Sean Wallace and Wayne Girodat both of Kamloops. • In other action for TOFC teams last weekend, the U13 boys tied CMF 2-2 and beat VIW 1-0. The U14B tied VIW 1-1 and the U18 boys defeated VIW 6-0. The U15 girls team tied CMF 1-1 and also defeated VIW 2-0. • The TOFC U18 Boys play in Kelowna this Sunday at 2 p.m. at Mission on field 74.

This is a playoff game with the U17 Mountain team with the winner ad-

vancing to the semi-finals on Friday, June 29 vs. Coquitlam Metro Ford at

Christopher Vandenheuvel was selected to the Thompson-Okanagan U-12 boys soccer team that will play in the B.C. Summer Games. Kelowna United Warriors coach Cam West said it was no surprise, given the player’s work ethic an example of which came after practice. When other players were given extra running drills at the end of practice Vandenheuvel would voluntarily run the extra drills as well. “To my surprise Chris took it upon himself to do the extra set of exercises with that player and every time after that,” said West. “At this level and only 10 years old, this is complete-

Palahniuk 3rd at B.C. Senior tourney

Kelowna’s Lynda Palahniuk finished in a tie for third overall at the B.C.. fSenior and Super Sen-ior Women’s Golf Cham-pionship in Victoria. Palahniuk card-red a three-day score off 22-over-par 238 (81-79-78) this week at the High-land Pacific Golf Club. Palahniuk placed second in the Super Seniors division (60-plus), five shots back of Alison Murdoch of Victoria. Port Alberni’s Jackie Little was the overall winner (232) by one stroke tover Murdoch. ... The Shannon Lake Ladies Club hosted its fannual tournament last week, a four-player stableford team event. A total of 20 teams, 80 ladies, from the Okanagan Valley attended, playing under threatening but cooperative skies. Local knowledge proved to be a key on the day as Denise Vines, Betty Russell, Judi Kowalchuk and Linda Sunderland of Shannon Lake took top honours with 116 points. In fact, teams from the host course took the top four spots. Arlene Hen-

derson, Marion Henselwood, Virginia Cundliffe and Gail Rhein finished second, while Shirley McKenzie, Barb Gould, Diane Graham and Marney Huck placed third. Olga Zaruba, Jacquie McDougall, Norma Waddell and Vera Tuningley rounded out the top four. On an individual note from Shannon Lake, Charles Burns of the Shannon Lake Golf Club posted a gross score of 85 on June 18. The round is noteworthy as Burns celebrated his 85th birthday this past November. ... Seventy-two players battled torrential rain and breezy conditions and the Okanagan Golf Club’s

Quail course proved to be a miserable opponent on Monday night at the Molson Tour’s weekly golf stop. Despite the cool, wet weather, spirits were not dampened and several players found success. Closest to the p winners were Mike Ferguson, Brent Pateman, Darcy Sigfuson and Rob Hill while Dave McMahon blasted the long drive on b hole 17 and Gary Yates nailed the long putt award on the 18th hole. The top 64 point makers will qualify for the Match Play playoffs (32 in division A and 32 in division B) and both divisions will play down to determine the Molson Tour Champion near the end of the summer. Molson Tour Top 10 Dave McMahon Jim Malazdrewicz Dennis Young Craig Foster Jay Heer Gary Higgs Cal Warren Shane Cutinha Kelly Quist Greg Patchell ... Gudmund Lindbjerg of the Pitt Meadows Golf

and Country Club won the Kelowna Golf and Country Club’ Senior Men’s Invitational for the fourth time earlier this month. Club member Wayne Schaeffer fired a threeunder 69 in the second and final round to tie Lindbjerg and force a playoff. But Lindbjerg prevailed with a par on the first playoff hole. Gallagher’s Canyon member Allastair Walker had a 69 on Sunday, moving up the leaderboard. There were 176 players attending the Kelowna Golf & Country Club 35th annual Senior Men’s Invitational Golf Tournament. ... The Stew Tuningley Memorial Senior Men’s Tournament goes on June 25 at the Shannon Lake Golf Club. Tuningley died last summer along Shannon Lake Road when he was struck by a vehicle while performing volun-

batted around in the order during a five-run second inning. Kelowna hit a pair of home runs, one from Kelowna product Ryan Stajduhar and the recently arrived Jerry McClanahan. With a single, double and home run two RBIs and two runs scored McClanahan was named player of the game. Seven of the nine starters in the Falcons line up had multi-hit games, including three by Cameron Alvarado, Kyle Pearson and McClanahan. Starting pitcher Cord Cockriil (2-0) was bumped up a day because of an illness to Brandon Marris. Cockrill went 5.1 innings, allowing one run on four hits while striking out four. Alan Scott, in his home debut, was terrific out of the bullpen. Scott allowing two hits and striking out two over 3.2 innings. Following Friday night’s game, the Falcons will then host the Bend Elks for three games, Saturday, Sunday and Mon-

day. All games at at 6:35 p.m., except for a 6:05 p.m. start on Sunday.

JAYS HOME SATURDAY… The Kelowna West Coast Authentic Jays are back in action this weekend with a pair of doubleheaders. On Saturday at Boucherie field, the Jays will host the Burnaby

Bulldogs beginning at 2 p.m. On Sunday, Kelowna will travel to Vernon for two games with the Diamondbacks. Last weekend, the Jays lost 10-6 and 8-2 to the Northwest Honkers on Saturday. On Sunday, Kelowna split a pair with Coquitlam, losing 6-2 and winning 10-9.

The athletic department at UBC Okanagan continues to grow with the recent addition of head coaches for the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cross country running team. Nikki and Nathan Reiter were recently announced as coaches of the UBCO cross-country running team. The duo joined long-time coach Brian Rhodes last fall, and enjoyed some success with eight UBC Okanagan runners taking part in the CCAA national championships this past November. With Rhodes deciding to retire at the end of the season, Nikki and Nathan took advantage of the opportunity to take on the team themselves. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am very pleased with the level of commitment and expertise shown by Nikki and Nathan,â&#x20AC;? said director of athletics and recreation, Rob Johnson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;By stepping up this year, it has allowed the department to continue to offer our growing stu-

dent body more choices to compete as a part of their university experience.â&#x20AC;? Nikki and Nathan are new to the Okanagan area but bring valuable experience to UBCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Okanagan campus as they both have experience as coaches and both former CIS athletes. Nikki hails from Windsor, Ontario, where she competed for her hometown Windsor Lancers in cross country and track and field, while she studied kinesiology at both the undergraduate and graduate level, obtaining a masterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s degree in Biomechanics.

Originally from Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Nathan competed for five seasons in the CIS, pulling double duty as a member of the cross country and track team for the McMaster Marauders and the Windsor Lancers. Over the course of his competitive career, he collected three OUA (Ontario University Athletics) bronze medals, two OUA gold medals, one CIS gold medal, one CIS silver medal, and one CIS bronze medal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Currently the team is competing in the CCAA (Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association) but we hope the program can make the jump to CIS competition in the next few years,â&#x20AC;? said Nathan â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are very excited to get this opportunity and feel UBCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Okanagan campus has the potential to produce top quality cross country athletes. It will take a ton of work to get the fledgling program to that level, but this is our passion, and we are ready to put the effort in to make it happen.â&#x20AC;? The current members of the team will keep training on their own over the summer, but come September Nikki and Nathan will look to increase the number of runners on the team as well as continue to increase the quality of runner at UBCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Okanagan campus. Both coaches have started in with the local coaching scene with the Okanagan Athletics Club, working with both varsity and masters aged athletes. In addition, Nathan has teamed up with local Olympian Malindi Elmore and her popular Canadian Runner Clinics which delivers running expertise and coaching to the Kelowna running community.

ENTERTAINMENT Bennett explores aboriginal roots with contemporary flare

Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

It’s National Aboriginal Day when Jordan Bennett picks up the phone and dials in for an interview en route to Edmonton. A fine arts graduate whose hoping to do his master’s degree imminently, he’s already mastered the unthinkable— earning a living solely off his art, and DJing, earning the award as Newfoundland and Labrador Art Council’s emerging artist of the year and having a solo show called aboDIGITAL. “The concept for the show came about by looking at how aboriginal people in Canada have been adapting so well to technology and using technology,” said Bennett. Hearing others joke he is the most digital aboriginal person they’ve ever met, he created a series of paintings and installations documenting his own attempts to explore his culture via the Internet and various musical technology. Kelowna’s show at the Alternator Gallery is not only the first to show the work, but will likely be the only cohesive showcase as it then piecemeal out with a set of wooden turntables going on the sixstop Beat Nation tour starting out of the Vancouver Art Gallery while a skull sculptural mixed media piece heads to Winnipeg. One look at the work and it’s easy to spot the genius in its genesis. A Mi’kmaq by birth, Bennett is one of Newfoundland’s young aboriginals trying to pie-

JENNIFER SMITH/CAPITAL NEWS

THE ALTERNATORY Centre for Contemporary Arts administrative director Lorna McParland checks out Jordan Bennett’s Turning Tables. ce together a heritage all but forgotten—and he’s turned to social media and Google to do so. Using Facebook sites that give the meaning and phonetic pronunciation of words in his language, he’s slowly learning a

mother tongue likely different from his ancestors. Googling Mi’kmaq words, he discovered one can have them read back in three different voices: a female voice and those of a male elder or a young person, like himself.

It’s one of the inspirations behind a string of Google main-page images in his show, a suite of the most Googled phrases about aboriginal people in Canada. All of this said, Bennett doesn’t think of him-

self as an aboriginal artist. “I want people to look at it and think it’s not that I’m an aboriginal artist, but that I’m an artist that is aboriginal. If you think of an aboriginal artist, you expect this certain formula. I want to

do art that people look at and read into it. I want the wow factor and I don’t want people to look at it and think: Oh, he’s aboriginal.” As such, each piece reflects his own journey through various aspects of the culture he’s uncovering. Casts of several animal skulls—he didn’t want to use the actual skulls to respect the animals—show off a multi-media display of what that animal’s life is like, for example. He’s researched the rods and cones in each animal’s eyes, making a video installation of what each would see. The mixed media piece includes an audio feed of the scenes in the video; although, by far the most interesting audio in the show stems from Turning Tables, that set of wooden turntables. Here Bennett has taken a tree and crafted a set of DJ turntables, one of which plays an audio stream of him learning to sound out words in the native Mi’qmaq tongue. Bennett saw how DJs had revived vinyl and uses the piece to draw analogies between the return to records after a mammoth decade of technological change in the music world and young First Nations people’s effort to recapture and rebuild the stories and sounds of the culture stripped from them by colonization. “In Newfoundland, the Beothuk people were completely wiped out within the last 120 years,” he said. “…That’s where the first European settlement would have happened, so we had to travel

across Canada to build on other cultural traditions and legends and adapt them to what little culture there was left of the Mi’kmaq who intermarried with the Beothuk. “The record player was such a pinnacle form, a piece of technology that was in everybody’s home and allowed everybody to hear sound from all around the world. Then that died out and eight tracks came in, then cassettes, then CDs and then now CDs are pretty much gone and we’ve re-adapted this whole technology and brought vinyl back to life—but in a different style,” he said. Just as one can look at a piece of wood and see the old story of the tree, technology can be used to revive old cultural stories and components. In fashioning his turntables out of wood, Bennett gives the tree new life, just as he is giving his language new life by using technology to research and revive the lost sounds. “It’s that whole if a tree falls in the forest thing,” he explains, noting the turntable even gives the wood itself a sound as the needle of the deck scratches along the surface. Bennett got into DJing through a friendship he foraged with Bear Witness from A Tribe Called Red, a First Nations instrumental hip hop electronic group from Ottawa. To witness this incredible show, stop by the Alternator Centre for Contemporary Art in the Rotary Centre for the Arts before July 28. jsmith@kelownacapnews.com

James’ Fifteen ‘one of his best efforts to date:’ Mitchell COLIN JAMES; FIFTEEN (EMI) Most recording artists don’t include live albums, Best Of collections nor seasonal releases in their catalogue of studio music. Colin James has titled his new album Fifteen but this number includes his Best Of album, oddly enough, released 15 months ago, as well as a Christmas long player. Nonetheless, Colin James has proven to be a reliable recording artist over the years where almost all his albums are worth close listening while Fifteen, to my ears, is one of his best efforts to date. James doesn’t try to re-invent the wheel here with solid blues rock and soulful ballads and

SOUNDING OFF

Bruce Mitchell the tunes are consistently strong from start to finish with some dazzling originals and some nicely realized covers. The best of the former, include the rocking swagger of Sweets Gone Sour and the Mellencamp-like I’m Diggin’ where James plays a mean slide guitar. Fans will want to check out the fine covers of Peter Green & Fleetwood Mac’s classic Oh Well, Robert Palmer’s funky pop of Sneakin’ Sally Through The Al-

ley and the heartfelt Jealous Guy based not on John Lennon’s version but rather that of ace soul singer Donny Hathaway (who enjoyed an R&B hit with his take several years ago). Fifteen also features songs co-written with Ron Sexsmith, highlighted by the romantic Finally Wrote A Song For You, as well as with Tom Wilson of Junkhouse and Craig Northey of The Odds (who also wrote the theme song for the TV show Corner Gas). Many of these tunes will no doubt be featured in Colin James’ upcoming national tour and with his back catalogue of hits, ought to make for a great gig. Incidentally, James has never released a live

BRANDI CARLILE; BEAR CREEK (COLUMBIA) This is the fourth album from Washington state based singer/writer Brandi Carlile and it is the album that will solidify her as a fixture on the altcountry and roots Americana circuit. Carlile graces the cover of the influential Paste magazine this month while NPR has dubbed Bear Creek one of the best albums of the year. This is also Carlile’s strongest selling album to

date although it is faring far better in her native USA than here in Canada where she has a very strong cult following. Carlile simply has one of the best voices suited for roots music. Check out her opener Hard Way Home that sounds like a cross between Bonnie Raitt and Alison Krauss while there is a cool sense of American gothic on the country gospel of Raise Hell. The song I have on heavy repeat is simply titled 100 and features a U2-styled bass line and a smooth rock groove that grabs you by the ears and won’t let go. Other stand out tracks include The Beatles/

George Martin hooks of What Did I Ever Become while there is also an untitled 13th track that features some orchestral folk. I don’t know if mainstream radio will pick up on this excellent offering but there isn’t a dud on this solid album that is so uniformly strong that no song jumps out ahead of the rest. Watch for this to be on more than a few Best Of lists at years end. B+

PAUL SIMON; GRACELAND, 25TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION (SONY) It has been a quarter of a century since Paul Simon released what is

arguably his best album ever and one that more or less helped world beat music blossom on a large commercial scale around the planet. This 25th year Anniversary Edition is a twodisc affair with a CD and DVD combo. The audio disc features a re-master of Graceland along with a few outtakes and demo versions that only the most dedicated will really enjoy, including an instrumental version of You Can Call Me Al. Also on the audio CD Simon reveals that the title song was based on a Johnny Cash chickaboom Tennessee Two rhythm but done with South African musicians who gave it a special groove. The DVD is massive at two and a half hours and features interviews with musicians such as Hugh Masekela and Ray Phiri who gave the disc its nifty accordion play, while Harry Belafonte and Whoopi Goldberg both explain how this album really boosted the following for world beat music that carries on today. Finally there are the hit MTV videos to hits such as The Boy In The Bubble, Diamonds On The Souls Of Her Feet (represented two times with a clip from SNL) and the aforementioned You Can Call Me Al. A treasure trove for big fans. Amooseman19@telus.net

▼ KELOHA FESTIVAL

Jon and Roy Letting go of old ways, looking inwards, finding a sense of freedom. This is where Victoria folk-rock duo Jon and Roy placed their focus while recording their fourth album, Let It Go. Jon and Roy play the Keloha Festival on July 8. Set for release on June 12, the collection of 10 original songs makes up the perfect summer album with its laid-back acoustic guitar riffs, toe-tapping rhythms and made-forsing-along lyrics. The duo went searching for something intangible while recording Let It Go. Freedom—from artistic constraints, from

audience expectations— became a recurring theme for the pair during the creation of the new album. If there was one rule for longtime friends and collaborators Jon Middleton (guitar/vocals) and Roy Vizer (drums/percussion), it was to have no rules at all. “We felt much more free on this album,” said Middleton. “It was a very natural process in this way, similar to how we would approach a live show.” The result of that feeling of freedom is a laidback sound, with enough diversity to have listeners putting the album on repeat.

NEWS â&#x2013;ź RIDE2SURVIVE

Grueling 400km cycling test assists cancer society For eight years, about a hundred ordinary people have set aside their hobbies and sacrificed their weekends to spend half a year training for one of the toughest one-day amateur cycling events in North Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Ride2Survive. They do it to raise money for the Canadian Cancer Society. So far this year the crew and riders have raised $345,000. Since its inception the ride has raised $1.9 million for cancer research. Training began in February with bike rides 80 kilometres long. Two weeks ago, the training rides hit the 200-kilometre mark. This Saturday, another group of ordinary people will get on their bikes at Mainstreet Community Church in Kelowna at

3:30 a.m. and arrive 19 hours later at South Shore Cycle in North Delta. With hours of training and fundraising behind them, they will â&#x20AC;&#x153;ride to survive.â&#x20AC;? Now in its eighth year, Ride2Survive is designed to be a metaphor for battling cancer. Unlike other ultra-endurance cycling events such as the Rocky Mountain 1200 or the new Tour de British Columbiaâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and unlike the shorter cancer rides and GranFondosâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; Ride2Survive is a true team endurance event. In Ride2Survive, the riders start and finish together and are fully supported along the 19-hour ride. Food, water, conveniences, and medical support are provided at the end of each of the 13

stages. Drafting is encouraged and helping hands and SAG wagons are always available. Just like fighting cancer, say the organizers, you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do 400 kilometres and 13,000 feet of climbing alone. Organizer Kerry Kunzli said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of people are drawn to the ride because of the physical challenge. But then they spend some time beside a rider who just got off chemo or somebody who has pictures of children lost to cancer on the top tube of their bike. Somewhere between that and riding into the finish in Delta, they change.â&#x20AC;? The 400-kilometre route is a hilly grind that would test the endurance of professional cyclists. The stages are long

Kelowna will send off a brave and enthusiastic group of 100 cyclists early Saturday morning to start the eighth annual Ride2Survive. The ride finishes in Delta and hopes to raise over $400,000 to fight cancer. and lonely and the stops are short. Veterans of the ride say that it is hard to get back on the bike and keep going. To help keep their spirits up, the organizers are hoping that people will come out and cheer them

on along the way and that the donations will keep flowing in during those 19 hours on the road, particularly during the final â&#x20AC;&#x153;yellow mile.â&#x20AC;? Some of the best places to come out and see the ride on Saturday

include Johnson-Bentley Memorial Aquatic Centre in West Kelowna at 3:30 a.m. The yellow mile will take place along Scott Road between 72nd Avenue and 80th Avenue in North Delat at about 9:30 p.m.

Spectators are asked to wear bright yellow and make lots of noise as the exhausted group nears the finish line. To follow the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s progress by GPS tracking on ride day, or make a donation, visit www.ride2survive.ca.

TRAVEL Maui king of ‘best beach’ list Gary A. Warner CONTRIBUTOR

In a nation of more than 300 million people, a small county in the Pacific Ocean that’s home to just over 155,000 people has nearly a quarter of the country’s best beaches. Maui is called The Valley Island, but in most travelers’ minds, its beaches are synonymous with the Hawaiian island. In the annual “Best Beach” contest held since 1991, Maui has won four times—five, if you want to stretch the definition of Maui. Maui County includes the islands of Molokai and Lanai. A beach on Lanai was the winner in 1997. And Maui isn’t done. A remote beach in an area once favored by Oprah

Winfrey made this year’s Top 10 and is likely to win the top spot eventually. It’s not all good news for Maui’s famous beaches. A U.S. Geological Survey report says Maui has the highest rate of beach erosion in the state. Data from 1899 to 2007 show Maui beaches averaged 6.7 inches of sand lost each year. The worst impact is on the north shore near Paia. Erosion rates are somewhat higher in the Kaanapali area than in Kihei or Wailea. As to the rankings, I’ve criticized the methodology of the contest put out each spring by “Dr. Beach,” Stephen Leatherman, a Florida oceanography professor. He has a big East Coast bias. But we can’t argue with his favourites in Maui. Here CONTRIBUTED

D.T. FLEMING BEACH is a scenic backdrop for surfing, fishing or a romantic stroll. Maui’s west side beach is popular with tourists and locals.

are the big four (or five), along with the next champion in waiting. The year the beach won the contest is in parentheses. D.T. Fleming Beach Park, Maui (2006): I’ve taken my share of knocks at this great bodysurfing beach on the sometimes turbulent northwest shore of Maui. When you’re feeling a bit winded from battling the waves, there are shade trees along parts of the mile-long strand.

When you are ready to call it a day, head uphill to the bar at the Ritz-Carlton for some sundowner drinks and pupus. Kaanapali, Maui (2003): The busiest beach on this list, it’s fronted by a string of hotels from the Sheraton on the north to the Hyatt on the south and the Whaler’s Village shopping mall in the middle. With all the fancy resort swimming pools, guests sometimes that forget a

world class beach is just on the other side of the walkway. There’s usually gentle surf and knockout views out toward Lanai. My favorite spot is Black Rock at the north end of the beach, with its excellent snorkeling and the crazies jumping off the rock. Wailea Beach, Maui (1999): Wider, hotter and See Beaches A35

TRAVEL â&#x2013;ź TOP HAWAIIAN BEACHES

Hamoa destined to rise Beaches from A34

less crowded than Kaanapali to the north, Wailea is also fronted by luxury hotels and rocks in portions, but wide sands in other areas. The dropoff is gradual here, making it good for kids if the waves arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t up. The view here is also outstanding, with views toward the tiny Molokini crater dive spot and the island of Kahoolawe, once used for Navy target practice. Kapalua Bay Beach, Maui (1991): The first â&#x20AC;&#x153;best beachâ&#x20AC;? on Leathermanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s list is still one of the islandsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; prettiest, though in the intervening decades, development has taken over the slope just above the beach, replacing palm trees and greenery with hotel and condo units. Though it has lost some of its magic, the beach itself is still a beautiful crescent of blond-colored sand fronting clear aquamarine waters. Hulopoe, Lanai (1997): Lanai is officially part of Maui County, governed from the Maui town of Wailuku. If you want to get political, it could be included in Mauiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best beach count. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s actually a geological basis for inclusion with the other beaches. Lanai and Molokai were once part of Maui Nui, the massive, ancient volcanic island that collapsed into the sea millions of years ago. Hulopoe is the best beach in the Hawaiian islands that barely anyone gets to. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s next to the Four Seasons Manele Bay on the former pineapple plantation island. There are trees for shade and picnic tables for gettogethers, and a nice mix of tourists and locals. Hamoa Beach (No. 5 this year): Travelers really, really have to want to visit this beach. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just beyond the Travaasa Resort at the end of the twisting, 52-mile Hana Highway from Kahului. The

beach is framed by coconut palm trees that give shade on hot days. The beach is actually the side of an old volcanic crater. The area has been a favoured getaway for celebrities for nearly a century. Aviator Charles Lindbergh is buried in a churchyard nearby, writer Ernest Hemingway called it one of the most beauti-

ful beaches heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d seen, exBeatle George Harrison lived not far away and TV host/magnate Oprah Winfrey owns property on this side of the island, though her main residence is now upcountry near Kula. If all goes according to the trend, Hamoa should reach the No. 1 designation as top beach later this decade.

MOTORING ▼ FIRST DRIVE

The ‘S’ stands for serious: Audi S6 and S7 Sportback Jim Robinson CONTRIBUTOR

MUNICH: After driving the Audi S6 and S7 Sportback, you quickly realize the “S” stands for serious. Not just serious as in the performance or the build quality, but serious in Audi’s approach to every aspect of these two cars. An example is the unique “Beaufort” inlays available on the interior. They are comprised of wood strips and one strip of aluminum which are glued together into a 0.20-inch thick composite. Then a large number of these composites are placed on top of each other and bonded again.

Lastly these blocks are cross cut into veneers for a brown and silver pinstripped look you won’t find in any other car but an Audi. Another example is the available diamond stitching available on the sports seats centre panels. The panels are made from black and silver leather each sewn with contrasting seam color. There are also several choices of leather including Valcona known for its softness and uniform surface quality. Serious also describes the turbocharged, directinjection 4.0-litre V8 engine found on the S6 and S7 that produces 420 hp and 406 lb/ft of torque.

CONTRIBUTED

AUDI’S S MODELS always look purposeful whether moving at speed or standing still. This is the 2013 S7 Sportback with 4.0-litre twin turbo V8 See Audi B4

that goes from rest to 100 km/h in 4.7 seconds.

Near instant fuel mix

Audi from B1 With twin turbos mounted in the V of the engine, gas flow is fed directly into the cylinders instead of through a long tube the result of which is near in-

stant mixture delivery. The engine also features a cylinder-on-demand system that shuts down four of the eight cylinders when cruising. Overall, the S6 and S7 consume 9.6/9.7L/100 km

combined respectively. Serious also describes the acceleration of the S6, which sprints from 0-100 km/h in 4.6 seconds while the S7 does it in 4.7 seconds. Top speed on both is limited to 250

km/h (155 mph). That’s quick no matter what you call it but, in the S6/S7 it’s done with such civility that you sometimes forget this in an autobahn cruiser designed for sustained 200-

plus km/h. Not only are cars like the S6/S7 ludicrously fast but the Germans like their higher end cars quiet, too. Audi achieves this in two ways, the first being active noise control (ANC) that uses four small microphones hidden in the headliner that analyses the noise in their immediate area. When an unwanted noise is detected, the system emits a noise-cancelling counter tone produced by the speakers in the sound system. Backing this up are active engine mounts that offset the rough running nature of the engine when it is running on four cylinders. This is also aided by a centrifugal governor in the dual-mass flywheel that counter balances fourcylinder vibrations. Drive the S6/S7 and they point out very clearly the difference between what Europeans and North Americans think of as “performance”.

You can go ridiculously fast but everyone will see and hear you do it. In Europe it’s all about being discreet. On many high performance cars the badging is deleted so no one knows what you’ve got under the hood. Interiors are ultra-lux and they are unusually quiet. Joining the autobahn at 130 km/h, I was overtaken by a VW police van doing a good 150 km/h and the cops were waving at me with smiles on their faces. In Canada I would be in jail and the car seized. Getting up to the flow of traffic at 160 km/h that V8 engine note we all love over here is just a muffled tone. Tire noise intrusion seemed a long way away.

Infiniti’s new JX is ready to take on best in its segment Neil Moore CONTRIBUTOR

Charleston, SC: Despite the insanity at the fuel pumps, SUV and crossover sales are still humming along nicely and Infiniti has added yet another to its lineup. The 2013 JX 35, which will start arriving at dealerships later this month, is a seven-seat crossover that, sizewise, fits nicely between the

stylish yet impractical EX and FX models, and the colossal QX flagship. I won’t knock the current Infiniti truck offerings, but after spending a few hours with the new all-wheel-drive JX, I’ll tip my hand early and say it’s the most practical. Not that common sense is the rule during an emotional purchase, but for those who live life by the numbers, the JX has what it takes to easily out-

sell its stablemates. First of all, it’s a seven-seater. That doesn’t mean tall folk will enjoy long rides in the third row, although we did shoehorn in a six-foot-two journalist with seat slightly reclined. I found it just fine for my five-foot-nine frame, and expect it would be more than adequate for kids. By comparison, the EX and FX siblings seat only five, and while the QX does hold seven, it

INFINITI’S new seven-seat 2013 JX crossover offers best-in-class interior volume, and wears some of the company’s signature design cues like a double-arch grille and wave’ design hood. 18- or 20-inch aluminum wheels complete the premium look. starts at $73K and is the size of a battleship. Enough said. Secondly, in terms of cargo capacity, the JX maximum of 2,166 litres is scads more than both the EX and FX, although less the QX. The latter, however, tips the scales at a whopping 2,656 kg (5,855 lbs) versus the relatively svelte JX at 2004 kg. Indeed, the JX has a rightful place in the Infiniti lineup, and starts at a reasonable $44,900, which is $5K more than the EX and $8,350 less than the FX. But this isn’t really about sibling rivalry.

What’s truly important here is that the JX has been engineered and priced to serve stiff competition within its segment—and to the Audi Q7 and Acura MDX, in particular. The base JX is much lighter on the wallet than either of these. Sure, it can be optioned up with five equipment groups, but the $5,000 premium package—the expected volume seller—still puts it well below the MDX, which starts at $52,690, and the optional three-row Q7 at $59,200. The JX is taller than both, longer than Acura and narrower than each,

but with best-in-class interior volume. At 4,242 litres, it provides 227 more than Acura and 470 more than Audi, and tops each of them in secondand third-row leg room. During our few hours of driving the interstates and backroads surrounding Charleston, I had no opportunity to ride in back, but spent a few minutes while parked. Company representatives insisted the third row was no ‘penalty box’ and I would agree. These 50/50 split seats are reasonably well padded, they recline and benefit from rear ventilation. And the 14 cm of

second-row seat travel in front allows some flexibility for taller passengers. This generous travel, along with doors that open wide, also makes it easier to climb in back. Which is unlike some SUVs and crossovers that require gymnastics to access the third row. There’s nothing unusual about the way the JX centre row tips forward to get out of the way in one motion, but to do this without removing your child car seats is a big deal. Especially in crappy weather.

Audi fit and finish are outstanding

y p p a H ! y a D a d a n Ca

Audi from B5 outstanding feature, in my opinion, is the fit and finish inside and out. You won’t find a stitch out of place or a panel not trued up to the next. It is the attention to detail, not just the sense of

luxury or the speed, that makes the S version of the A6 and A7 Sportback stand out. Whether S6 or S7, each is a complete package that satisfies all the senses.

MOTORING Infiniti from B6

Also handy is the amount of cargo room behind the third row. Once again, you don’t appreciate this feature until you have a couple of kids and aging parents in the vehicle, and still have to squeeze in a load of groceries. My current ride has enough room behind the back row to slide in a couple of briefcases; the JX has 447 litres. Drop the third row and this expands to 1,339 litres (1,155 with second row in rearmost position). With all seats down you get 2,166 litres and a flat cargo floor. There’s also a storage tray beneath. The base JX comes well equipped, and despite there being a mind-numbing array of available options, the list of standard content is substantial. This includes tri-zone climate control; multiinfo display with seven-inch colour monitor; heated, power adjustable front seats; heated, leather-wrapped steering that is power tilt/telescopic with illuminated cruise and audio controls; smart key with pushbutton start; sequential welcome lighting; power rear liftgate; power moonroof and sixspeaker audio system. I didn’t have an opportunity to check out the base sound system, but will note that the available 15-speaker Bose unit was a delight. It really

kicks out the bass, thanks to a powerful subwoofer, which uses surprisingly little room in the rear cargo tray. I won’t list all the standard safety items, which include the usual array of airbags, brake and traction systems. What’s interesting here is the range of what some would call ‘nanny technologies’ that are available as part of the $5,000 Premium, $2,200 Driver Assistance and $3,500 Technology packages. One of these, as part of the Infiniti Connection telematics system which also provides navigation, crash notification and synched calendar functions, is Drive Zone/Speed Alert. This will keep an eye on young drivers who you may want to restrict to certain areas. Set the limits and it will send a text, e-mail or phone message if the boundary has been crossed or the speed exceeded. I would have hated this as a teen, and even as a parent, I’m not keen on these electronic snoops. Mind you, that may change as my kids approach driving age. Here’s one gizmo I do like—Blind Spot Intervention. I can’t count the number of times I’ve had to back out from between two land barges with no idea of what’s coming from either side. With this system, there’s less guesswork, as it can detect oncoming vehicles and ob-

jects in back, and if needed, clamp on the brakes. These things always sound great in theory, so the company set up a parking lot demo, complete crash target. I gave it a try, (heck, it’s not my insurance) and although it’s hard not to brake when you’re about to hit a couple of big garbage bins, I ignored the beeps, lights and pushback on the accelerator, and refrained from braking. The JX stopped with about six inches to spa re. Just stay below 5 mph (8 km/h) and keep off the brake. Touch the pedal, and the system assumes you’re back in control— even if you’re not. There’s still much more in terms of available technologies—like the around-view monitor, blind spot warning, intelligent brake assist with forward collision warning, lane departure warning and prevention, intelligent cruise with distance control, and more. There’s even a menu where you can choose which of these to enable. I’ve left ride and performance until the end, because quite frankly, they wouldn’t be my primary reasons for buying a JX. Not that Infiniti’s 3.5-litre DOHC V6 (265 hp and 248 lb/ft of torque) and CVT combination isn’t up to the task. Nor am I overlooking the forgiving (perhaps too forgiving) ride delivered by the independent strut front and multi-link rear suspension (with front and rear stabilizer bars). Admittedly, the JX performed a lot like a minivan. Even setting the fourposition dial to ‘Sport’ rather than Eco, Snow or normal, won’t transform the JX from green cruiser to road rocket. But that shouldn’t matter to most people who would buy one. What’s more significant is how Infiniti has done so many things right. Interior space, passenger amenities, safety tech-

nologies and price are all areas where the company has done its homework. And if the crossover buyer does his or hers, the JX may well end up on their shopping list.

driving this week,â&#x20AC;? a neighbour asked me recently as he walked past the house. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a Honda Crosstour,â&#x20AC;? I replied. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Never seen one of them,â&#x20AC;? was his response. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not surprised because even with all the driving and travelling I do, I rarely see one on the road. The mid-size crossover market is a tough one to crack as Honda has found with the Crosstour. Battling the likes of the Nissan Murano, Toyota Venza and Subaru Outback and a bunch of other vehicles, the Crosstour has been seen as an underperformer for the company since its debut in late 2009 as a 2010 model. Hondaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history shows they hit the mark with most vehicles so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s surprising the Crosstour has been less than a sales success.

THE FLOOR height of the rear cargo area is just right for loading and unloading goods. With the rear seat upright, the cargo compartment has 728 litres of space.

The EX-L 4WD Navi has the rear view camera monitor in the navigation system’s screen and it is needed in this vehicle. I now see why the rear view mirror monitor is standard on all trim levels. Even for a six-footer

like myself, rear visibility is poor, even with the split window in the hatch. Side visibility to the rear is also compromised by the design. You’ll find the rear view camera gets lots of use. Where the Crosstour

shines is interior storage. There are cubbies everywhere, with a nice-size centre console with storage compartment and roomy door pockets. There’s also a neat underfloor storage area in the rear cargo area with a re-

versible cover. Since the Crosstour is based on a sedan platform, ingress and egress is excellent, although tall passengers may have to watch their noggin in the rear due to the slope of the roofline.

On the road, the Crosstour behaves like the big vehicle that it is. Since it is longer and heavier than the Accord sedan, it isn’t quite as nimble in tight parking lots, though. The 3.5-litre V6 has adequate power and the

car’s ride and handling is refined. If you do much driving in snow country during the winter months, the 4WD version will be welcome. In an effort to spur See Honda B10

the Crosstour. With the rear seats upright, there is 728 litres of cargo space when you open up the rear hatchback. The space is limited somewhat in the middle due to the strut towers, but fold down the rear seats and you have a whole lot more space for cargo, but still not as much as the compact CR-V sport ute, which has a cargo volume of 2,007 litres with the rear seats down and 1,054 litres with the seats up. The Crosstour has a 3.5-litre V6 engine, producing 271 hp and 254 lb/ ft of torque. Mated with a six-speed automatic transmission, the car delivers fuel economy numbers of 11.8/7.6/9.9L/100 km (city/highway/combined) for the four-wheel drive (4WD) version and 11.5/7.2/9.6L/100 km for the front-wheel drive (FWD) model. Helping achieve these numbers is a Variable Cylinder Management system that adapts to the driving needs, engaging all six cylinders when needed, but only three or four cylinders during moderate highway, city or country road driving. My tester was the EX-L 4WD Navi. This is the top of three trim levels, priced at $38,990 and as the name implies, this model has four-wheel drive and a navigation system. The base EX-L 2WD starts at $34,990 and the EX-L 4WD is $36,990. The Crosstour offers seating for five (although four sit more comfortably) with generous rear seat legroom. Although comfortable, most people won’t be “wowed” by the interior. It is not nearly as luxurious looking as say the Toyota Venza, but it is well outfitted. All trim levels feature 18-inch alloy wheels, heated front seats, a seven speaker, 360-watt AM/ FM/CD premium audio system with six-disc in dash CD player with MP3/Windows Media Audio playback system, leather trimmed seating surfaces, dual zone automatic climate control, power moonroof with tilt feature, Bluetooth wireless phone connectivity and a backup camera incorporated into the rearview mirror. The driver’s seat has eight power adjustments, while the passenger seat has four. Moving up the trim levels basically gives you four-wheel drive in the EX-L 4WD and fourwheel drive with navigation system in the EX-L 4WD Navi.

The Crosstour Concept shown there has more rugged, aggressive looking front end and a less radical, more traditional CUV rear end. But until that new model is released, buy-

MAJOR GENERAL DONALD BYRON BIGGS November 7, 1921 – June 18, 2012 Our beloved husband, father, and grandfather died on Monday, June 18 at the age of 90. Donald Byron Biggs was born in Regina, Saskatchewan. He joined the Royal Canadian Air Force as an airman in April 1941 and was commissioned as a radar officer that September. Transferred overseas in October 1941, on attachment to the Royal Air Force in Britain, he served with Fighter Command. At the end of 1942, he was sent to India, where he remained until February 1945, serving at several RAF air headquarters in Bengal. On his return to Canada in April 1945, Don Biggs left the RCAF to enter the University of Saskatchewan. After obtaining the degree of Bachelor of Engineering (Engineering Physics with Great Distinction), he was awarded a Rhodes scholarship to Oxford University in England where he obtained an MA degree (Honours Physics) and played hockey for Oxford. Rejoining the RCAF in 1950 as a telecommunications officer, Don was employed on radar duties at several units and at Air Defence Command Headquarters before attending the RAF Staff College in Great Britain in 1959. In January 1960, he was transferred to the staff of the Directorate of Radar and Data Processing at Air Force Headquarters, becoming Director in 1962. He became the RCAF Director of Communications in 1963. In October 1964, Don became the first Commander of the Canadian Forces Communication System at its headquarters in Ottawa. He was promoted Air Commodore and appointed Commandant of the Air Force College, Toronto, in November 1965. Upon reorganization of the Canadian Forces on February 1, 1968, he assumed the rank of Brigadier General and became Director General Senior Appointments at Canadian Forces Headquarters in August 1969. Promoted Major General in February 1970, he took up an appointment as Director for Command and Control Systems on the NATO International Military Staff at NATO Headquarters, Evere, Belgium. On returning to Canada in 1972, Don was appointed Associate Assistant Deputy Minister (Finance) and Chief of Management Services. Don took up the post of Commander and Defence Attaché at the Canadian Defence Liaison Staff, Canadian Embassy, Washington, in August 1974. He retired from the Canadian Forces in November 1976, having reached the compulsory release age. Appointed in November 1977 Chairman of the Board of Bell Canada International (BCI), a subsidiary of Bell Canada engaged in telephone system-related consulting and management services overseas, Don resigned in 1979 when he judged the management challenge was reduced as a result of regulatory decisions of the CRTC. He went on to consult under contract with Genstar Marine Ltd on their proposal for the Canadian Patrol Frigate Program of DND until June 1979. Don Biggs and Louise Holland of Maryfield Saskatchewan were married in 1945. They have 2 children, Karin (John Roston) and Jeff (Dina Kirkland), and 2 grandchildren, Michael and Kaite Biggs. Don was brother to Shirley, who predeceased him. The family gives heartfelt thanks to Dr. B.K. Eliason, Dr. J.D. Rolf, Dr. G.D. McCauley, the Respiratory Service and Community Care, many caregivers, and especially Hospice House, Kelowna. Cremation by his request with no service. A celebration of our loved one’s life with friends and family will be held at a later date. If desired, donations can be made in his memory to the Salvation Army or the Kelowna General Hospital Foundation. Condolences may be sent to the family by visitingwww.springfieldfuneralhome.com, 250-860-7077.

W OF PRIME INTEREST

W BUYING A NEW HOME

Low rates open up options when Tips for steering yourself mortgage shopping through buying process

H

omeowners and buyers are in a rather enviable position these days. Interest rates are at historic lows and the cost of borrowing for a home is currently about as low as it can get. The five-year fixed rate is available as low as 3.09 per cent. While thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great news, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the only thing homeowners and purchasers need to think about regarding their mortgage. There are a number of other features to consider before signing up for a mortgage, the largest debt that most Canadians will ever take on in their lives. When it comes to choosing a mortgage, securing a good rate is only the beginning. You also have to be aware of all the other mortgage cost features that may lie below the surface. Those various features need to fit a mortgage homebuyerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s personal goals, both now and down the road. One type of mortgage to consider is an assumable mortgage. An assumable mortgage means it can be transferred to another borrower. It allows a purchaser to take on your mortgageâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s terms and payments as part of the sale of your home. With the extremely low interest rates today, that could be a big selling feature to a potential buyer in the future.

Given the low rates today, many homeowners are thinking about refinancing their mortgage. Whether you should refinance your mortgage in a period of low interest rates depends on how much it will cost you to break your existing mortgage compared to how much you will save in interest payments. If you break an existing mortgage, you will have to pay the greater of three monthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interest or the interest rate differential, a penalty for early prepayment of all or part of a mortgage outside of its normal prepayment terms. Usually this is calculated as the difference between the existing rate and the rate for the term remaining, multiplied by the principal outstanding and the balance of the term. It makes sense to refinance your mortgage if the interest rate savings over the remaining life of your mortgage exceed the value of the interest rate differential. Another strategy is to take a variable rate mortgage. If interest rates go down and you keep your mortgage payments the same, you will be paying off more of your principal with each payment and will pay down your mortgage faster. Many borrowers are taking advantage of low interest rates by accelerating payments on their mortgages. Many lenders will allow you to double up payments periodically

or make lump sum payments of up to 25 per cent of the principal once a year. You should make sure you understand the size and frequency of payments your lender will allow before you sign up for that. Some mortgage lenders will have an option to skip a payment without penalty, which may come in handy in todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economy. Another option that many mortgages have is portability. This allows you to transfer your existing mortgage over to a new property, another big advantage if you have a mortgage at current low rates. As well, if the penalty to pay the mortgage off is large, you may port it and reduce or have no penalty at all. Not all portability features are the same, however. Some lenders allow up to 120 days for transfer of the mortgage while others allow for only a few days up to a week. Choosing the right mortgage involves considering where you are now and where you may be three to five years from now.

Jeff Hui CONTRIBUTOR

There are a number of steps that potential new home buyers or builders should consider before signing off on their investment. 1)Keep your credit clean. Run a credit check on yourself and verify that the information is correct. Contact any creditors who havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t updated your record in terms of cancelled cards or balances that have been paid off. Paying off high interest credit cards as soon as possible will help make it easier for mortgage approval. 2) Be a pre-approved buyer. Talk to your mortgage professional about how much home you can afford and get pre-approved before you start looking. Becoming pre-approved is very easy. Contact your mortgage professional to arrange a mortgage consultation and they will work with you to complete your mortgage application with a credit check prior to beginning your search for a home. Pre-approval means that you have actually been approved for the purchase by a lender, which gives you the edge in home purchase negotiating. The pre-approval guarantees you, up to a period of 120 days, that if the rate increases during that time, you will still get the original rate. If the property you are looking to buy wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be completed for six months or more, then you should look into the mortgages offered by the builders onsite. In these cases, the onsite lender will typically be able to guarantee a capped rate for a longer time duration (such as 12 to 18 months), usually until the expected project completion date. You should negotiate a capped rate for as long a period as possible. These typically have some builtin extension protection if the project takes longer than expected. 3) Determine your priorities. Take some time to think about what factors are most important to you. Make a list of what you want, need, and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t

want in a home. Rate your desired home attributes on a scale of one to 10 (10 being an absolute â&#x20AC;&#x153;must haveâ&#x20AC;? and one being a â&#x20AC;&#x153;nice to have, but not a necessityâ&#x20AC;?). This checklist will allow you to objectively assess different homes according to your needs and will save you invaluable time when you go out to see various building developments. 4) Check out the neighbourhood. Make yourself a â&#x20AC;&#x153;home value expert.â&#x20AC;? Investigate the areas and price ranges for the type of home you are looking for. If you find yourself becoming interested in a particular neighbourhood, familiarize yourself with the local amenities, schools, property taxes, crime rates, and other neighhourhood features. Talk with different people in the area and visit at different times during the day.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;

WRITE EVERYTHING DOWN YOURSELF ON THE PREDELIVERY INSPECTION FORM. THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT OPPORTUNITIES FOR YOU TO NOTE ANY PROBLEMS IN THE NEW PROPERTY.

The characteristics of the area may change dramatically during different hours of the day. Go to the local planning office to find out about the plans for the area. Research is half the battle. Remember, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re getting more than just a homeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re buying the entire neighbourhood package. 5) Get legal advice before signing the contract. Talk with a real estate lawyer and review the Agreement of Purchase and Sale (APS) with them prior to signing the contract. This will ensure you understand the exact

terms and conditions of the contract, and that you know whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s included in the purchase price. Be sure that any verbal agreements from the seller are included in written form within the APS. Be sure that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve negotiated a reasonable closing or occupancy date and make sure that all deposit details are documented. 6) Stay calm. Even in a hot market, be cool and calculated with your decisions. Your home purchase may be your single largest investment. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re buying a new condominium, be sure to review the disclosure statement carefully. By law, you have a 10-day cooling off period once you receive the disclosure statement. 7) Be thorough during the pre-delivery inspection. Before you take possession of your new home or condominium, the builder is required to do a pre-delivery inspection of the property with you. This is one of your first opportunities to see your new home in its final state. During this inspection, it is crucial to note anything that is missing, not working properly, or damaged. Conduct the inspection at your own pace, and make sure to check out all the details. Write everything down yourself on the pre-delivery inspection form. This is one of the most important opportunities for you to note any problems in the new property. 8) Make sure that your finances are in order. As you begin the search for a new home, this is an ideal time to make sure that your finances are in order and to set up your financial plan for the future. A professional mortgage consultant who is truly looking after your financial interests will be able to advise you on various strategies to help you develop a financial plan and build more wealth. Remember to have fun during your homebuying adventure. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll only buy your first home once and with the right professional guidance, it can be a stress-free and enjoyable experience.

SHOWCASE W HOME RENOVATION SURVEY

Reading the shifts in consumer spending As the economy continues to shift, so does the taste of consumers. But, how are Canadians reacting? Are we more cautious in making new purchases or remodeling endeavors; and how does that affect our spending habits? Kitchen upgrades still appear to be a top priority for homeowners, says Moen, the number one faucet brand in North America. But with the state of the economy, the company was also curious about homeowner choices and future plans when it comes to remodeling. Interested in both why and how Canadians are spending their hardearned dollars, Moen recently conducted online survey queried 1,200 homeowners (age 25 and older) across the country about their remodeling activities throughout the past year and their intent to remodel within the next six

months. “While the economy is improving, consumers are still feeling the impact of the recession,” said Jack Suvak, senior director of research and insights at Moen. “With this new information, we wanted to uncover how consumers are now prioritizing their home remodeling projects.” *** When it comes to purchasing decisions in the Canadian home, most consumers have experienced a “spend shift,” and are carefully considering spending and weighing needs versus wants. Although 27 per cent of homeowners are more optimistic about their future financial improvement, 57 per cent of respondents still feel their current financial situation remained unchanged when compared to a year ago, and 27 per cent actually feel it’s worse.

“Budgets for entertainment, clothes and dining have already been cut or monitored closely in most households, and 42 per cent of consumers plan to reduce non-essential spending throughout 2012,” Suvak said. “It seems even though the recession’s over, there’s still a strong ‘buckle down’ mentality across the country, especially with Gen-Xers (33 to 45 years old).” *** Finding and spending the time and money to complete home remodeling projects may be difficult; but according to the survey, we are still doing both. However, increasing financial stress has caused the number of projects completed to decrease slightly from March 2010. But the reasons why homeowners are remodeling remain the same, compared to one year ago; 85

KITCHEN REMODELLING ranks high among renovation projects preferred by homeowners in Canada. per cent remodel to make their homes fit their lifestyles and 77 per cent remodel to increase the value of the property. More than half of homeowners completed interior painting (54 per cent) or gardening/ landscaping projects (61 per cent) in the last 12

months. Bathroom and kitchen remodeling activity also remained significant, at 25 and 17 per cent, respectively with homeowners bringing the “remodellite” mindset to both these rooms: Top kitchen remodel projects completed in-

cluded: installing a new faucet (62 percent), painting (60 percent) and new lighting (55 percent). In the bath they’re tackling similar projects, like painting (69 per cent), installing a new faucet (68 per cent), sink (56 per cent) and lighting (53 per cent).

“Canadian homeowners are cautious, yet optimistic, about spending and about their future financial improvement,” Suvak continued. “And our survey confirmed that we still see home remodeling as a key investment strategy for Canadians.”

W SALES UP IN MAY

Some optimism and stability in local real estate markets Andrew Smith CONTRIBUTOR

There are currently 2,230 homes for sale in Kelowna and there were 223 sales last month. This means if you have a home on the market, you have a one in 10 chance of selling it next month. The average sale price last month was $528,700. This is up from $487,000 from May 2011.

You would think there would be downward pressure on prices with so much inventory for buyers to choose from, but that hasn’t been the case. Overall, year-to-date prices are also up barely from last year at $491,700, compared to $486,600 last year. The 223 sales mark last month was a bit of an eye opening increase from the 197 recorded May 201. And June is showing signs of being equal-

ly promising for housing sales. We’re deep enough into the year now to safely assume prices won’t be coming down. Sorry, bargain hunters. We can also safely assume prices aren’t going to go into the stratosphere quickly either. Sorry, sellers. Comparing sale prices on a month to month basis sometimes leaves you wondering what’s going on with prices, but we can usually attribute that to a few freakishly high lakefront sales

falling in a given month. There are 73 foreclosures for sale which represents three per cent of the overall inventory. There have been 57 foreclosure sales through June 1 which represents 6.6 per cent of all sales this year. There was some worry at the beginning of the year that foreclosures might start putting downward pressure on prices, but this hasn’t been the case.

On the condominium sales side, 153 units sold last month at an average price of $296,000. The same one in 10 ratio almost applies here too with 1,570 condos on the market. Prices slipped a little from $309,000 in May 2011 but the number of sales is up from 130 registered for the same month a year ago. Andrew Smith is a realtor with the Royal LePage Kelowna Smith McLellan Group.
