Kelowna RCMP headed to the five vehicle crash, shortly after 6 p.m., June 27. “The investigation is ongoing in regard to how the crash happened but speed appears to have been a factor,” said Const. Kris Clark. “The information I have suggests that six persons—unknown age/gender—were taken to hospital with minor/ moderate non-life threatening injuries.” Although there were few serious injuries, traffic was snarled for some time as Springfield Road was shut down between Dillworth Drive and Durnin Road, so crews could deal with another issue. Those who lived in the area had to contend with a blackout, Staff Sgt. Blake MacLeod explained, as there were downed power lines. FortisBC worked into the wee hours of the night, ensuring power lines were made safe before the road was opened to traffic.

Highway 97 upgrade half done Alistair Waters ASSISTANT EDITOR

The province celebrated 50 per cent completion of the new Highway 97 section between Winfield and Oyama Thursday with a bang. During a ceremony on site, provincial Transportation Minister Blair Lekstrom along with federal MP Ron Cannan and Lake Country Mayor James Baker triggered an explosion that levelled a hillside peak above the existing Highway 97, near the intersection with Gatzke Road. “This new four-lane section of Highway 97 between Winfield and Oyama will benefit all Okanagan Valley residents and businesses,� said Lekstrom. “From families taking their children to the beach or sports tournaments, to commercial drivers transporting their goods safely and efficiently, to visitors exploring the Okanagan’s orchards and wineries, all motorists will enjoy this wider, safer stretch of highway.� As it has done in recent years on other major provincial construction projects—including the William R. Bennett Bridge—the government used the halfway point of the $77.9-million Highway 97 roadwork to celebrate the work and publicly thank the 250 men and women who are, or have worked on the nine-kilometre stretch of road. The new section of highway is located above the existing Highway 97, which, in parts, is only two lanes wide. In past years, the existing stretch of road has seen many serious traffic accidents and regular congestion. In lobbying for work to start to widen the road back in 2005, Lake Country council gave provincial and federal politicians jars of “traffic� jam in a bid to raise awareness of the need to make the stretch of Highway 97 through the area safer. Funded by the province, $44.3 million, and the federal government, $33.6 million, the new piece of road is expected to be complete by the summer of 2013. Project manager Kyle Webb of contractor Windley Contracting Inc. said, depending on this winter’s weather, that timeline will be met and the road will come in on budget.

DOUG FARROW/CONTRIBUTOR

LAKE COUNTRY Mayor James Baker speaks at a media gathering Thursday to update progress on the Winfield-Oyama Highway 97 upgrade. He said the project has gone smoothly. In January a large rock from the project careened down hill from the work and landed on the existing road below. Since then berms have been put in place to stop that from happening again. Local MLA Norm Letnick noted that the road project here was one of 600 along Highway 97 from the B.C.-Washington border to the B.C. Alaska

border that money was applied for through provincial and federal infrastructure funds. It was also one of the few that was actually awarded funding. Lekstom said that was because the government recognized the need to deal with a bottleneck on a strategic transportation route in the B.C. Interior. “This will replace the last two-lane section of highway between the Okanagan Connector and Vernon,� said Letnick.

It wil improve safety for Okanagan families who use the highway and will help generate new opportunities in trade and tourism all along the Okanagan corridor.� On the new stretch of road, near Oyama, a Gatzke Road overpass is taking shape with completion of that part of the project scheduled for August. At the south end of the project, the walls are being installed for construction of the Wood Lake overpass. Two steel pipes that will serve as underpasses for local access to nearby orchards and recreational areas have been placed along the new route. Measures have also been taken to protect bat habitat in an environmentally sensitive area, said project officials. To date, one-million cubic metres of rock and soil have been excavated and moved on the site.

Boil water advisory Business needs more than beaches and peaches for Black Mountain Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

The Black Mountain Irrigation District has issued a water quality advisory for the entire service area. On Sunday, June 24, Mission Creek flows reached an unprecedented peak flow rate of more than 100 cubic metres per second. The high flow resulted in a slope failure along upper Mission Creek. The very high silt load in Mission Creek as a result was measured at the BMID water treatment plant to be more than 600 turbidity units. Robert Hrasko, administrator for the irrigation district, said they were able to let the poorest quality water bypass and treat the residual water. “The water flowing through our balancing reservoirs will be reaching the public (Thursday) and levels of between 1.5 and 2.0 turbidity units is expected,” Hrasko said in a news release. “The level of turbidity may not be visible to the eye…the levels of bacteria after disinfection continue to be zero.” Interior Health and BMID recommend that all users seeking a higher level of protection should boil their water or obtain water from a safe alternate source for the next week. For infants, the elderly, people with weakened immune systems or anyone seeking a higher level of protection, boil tap water or take extra precautions. For more, contact BMID at 250-765-5169.

Could Agricultural Land Reserve property be used for research and development instead? This was one of the final points of wisdom outgoing UBCO vicechancellor Doug Owram left Kelowna to ponder before his retirement. According to the economist, whose textbooks set the bar for the discipline before he became leader of the new university, it is now time for UBCO and the Okanagan community to devise a strategy for how the university can foster growth. “It’s very dangerous to come up with a strategic plan when you don’t have the experience to do it,”

Nevertheless, he feels careful planning could help level the playing field. “The sheer presence of an institution like UBCO will, of course, have an impact on a community— but that isn’t enough,” Owram said. He pointed to ventures like Metabridge, a networking retreat for the technology industry, and Accelerate Okanagan, the new technology hub, as examples of the positive influence the university can have in the area. He encouraged the chamber of commerce members to meet with the city, the non-profit sector and the university to start making those all-important strategic plans. jsmith@kelownacapnews.com

Unlike the University of California San Diego, the government does not own vast tracks of land here that could be committed to research and development to build out a successful technology sector. Nor does the City of Kelowna or the province have the time and resources to work on the indepth planning that needed to develop the lively university-city relations that have created San Diego’s industry boom. The Okanagan is quite small and Canadian research and development and academic investment quite far behind other nations of its stature to expect UBCO can singlehandedly right the area’s economic peaks and valleys, he suggested.

delivered to the business community at the Kelowna Chamber of Commerce meeting Thursday. As one of his last addresses to the community, Owram used the moment to examine how the University of California San Diego has dealt with what’s termed “gown and town” relations, looking at ways industry, government, the non-profit service sector and university can work together to develop a more sustainable economy centred around the creative class. “The Okanagan needs to be more than just beaches and peaches,” Owram said, shortly after admitting it is still quite dull for the 20-somethings the area needs to retain after graduating from his institution.

Government misleads growers on replant program Judie Steeves STAFF REPORTER

Local growers learned Tuesday from the provincial government that funds announced in May to re-start the replant assistance program will not be available until 2013. For Kirpal Boparai, president of the B.C. Fruit Growers Association, that news is very discouraging. A Kelowna grower, Boparai says that means that none of the $2 million announcement in May will actually reach growers’ hands until a year from September, a fact which could be the last straw for some farmers already in a weakened financial state because of a poor market for apples. “Some could go out of business, especially if they believed the replant program would go ahead when government announced it,” Boparai said.

“The money is just grower-government sitting there, but they working group that recwon’t go ahead until ommended last fall next year,” he said. continuing the replant The $2 million program and then the would provide about agriculture minister’s $7,000 per acre tostatement that he supwards the estimatported that recommened cost of $25,000 to dation when he spoke $30,000 per acre to reto growers at their conplant an apple orchard, vention in January. or about 30 per cent of “Growers don’t emthe total cost, he said. bark on a one-year reKirpal Boparai BCFGA generplant plan; it’s a fiveal manager Glen Luyear program,” excas said a quick survey of growers this plained Lucas. week who have enquired about the It’s a big investment and it’s sevprogram indicated that about 37 have eral years before the new trees come replanted this year, expecting there into production, so there’s no income would be a replant program available from that acreage during that time. for some assistance this year.

government to begin it immediately, but Tuesday the final answer came back negative. “This was just a glamourous announcement for the public. We have nothing,” he added. He believes the government wants to see more growers exit the industry, so they are delaying the start of the program so that some will have to go out of business. “They are penalizing young people for spending money to replant and now they discover they are not eligible,” he said. “They got farmers’ hopes up and now they’ve let them down,” Boparai concluded. “This government seems to have no interest in helping growers. We’ve been misled.”

PUBLIC HEARING

Council will hear representations from the public who deem an interest in the properties affected by proposed amendments to Zoning Bylaw 8000 for:

the amount of pesticides used as orchards are more compact. It would only be available to growers who planted more-popular, newer varieties that draw better prices in the marketplace and help growers be more competitive. Boparai claims the funding announcement was just a photo op for government politicians who “threw smoke in growers’ eyes. “They announced it but intended it to begin a year later,” he said. He noted that it’s not a new program, but one which government cut off a year ago, so he sees no need to delay re-starting it by two years. It will be administered by the BCFGA, which administered the previous program as well. Boparai said as soon as they learned the new program was not to be started until next year, they lobbied

To the editor: With regard to the column written by Sharen Marteny regarding electric scooters, in the May 22 Capital News. Allow me to state that the vast majority of scooter drivers are neither feeble minded nor incompetent. I found the column extremely patronizing and I felt offended by its tone. In addition, it appears to me that only half of the problem was addressed, the other N half being the responsibility of vehicle operators to respect the simple rules of the road. Kelowna is notorious for careless automobile drivers. Because of that, it often appears that scooter drivers are not much more than a minor nuisance to the automobile drivers of Kelowna. I have been driving a scooter for seven years. In those years I have been struck six times at intersections, by vehicle drivers who were neither looking nor aware of the presence of the scooter. Much of the responsibility for these accidents rests with drivers who are either unaware or do not regard the safety of other people as important. The walk-light is a signal which allows pedestrians to utilize the intersec-

Get your Canada on with a little red and white

W

ill you be swaggering around the city, sporting your red and white this weekend? Or maybe even getting the omnipresent Maple Leaf tattooed to some part of your anatomy? If not, you’re clearly not among a growing number of Canadians who are taking their love of country to new, subdermal levels and garish heights. A rabid strain of Canuck love showed up in an Ipsos-Reid online survey of 1,100 people conducted in the lead up to Canada Day, on behalf of the Historica-Dominion Institute. Among some of the more unusual findings was that one-in-five would consider getting a tattoo of a Canadian

flag somewhere on their body. And that’s just the tip of the needle. Around 74 per cent of those surveyed agreed that displaying Kathy the flag in any way posMichaels sible is appropriate. More than 60 per cent said that included brandishing a Maple Leaf on their underwear, while 86 per cent would staple the flag to their garage. Maybe something is in the maple syrup, but doesn’t all this rabid love of a leaf that didn’t don our flag until 1965 seem about as un-Canadian as you could be? Flag frenzies are the domain of our southern neighbours, who even have an anthem about their fabled cloth.

KATHARTIC

Their patriotism has a certain je ne sais quoi, mind you. I’ve almost envied it in the past, when O’ Canada was being played at events and everyone around me was mouthing the words and shifting awkwardly from side-to-side. The Americans, in contrast, practically wept when it was their turn to belt out their anthem. But while I begrudgingly admire their chest-thumping love of nation, it gives me the creeps when it seeps into our provinces. It just seems discordant with everything I happen to love about this country. After all, we don’t have to be loud when we can be smug. And there is a lot to be smug about. We have health care, a social welfare net, the type of natural beauty that can knock you to your knees if you really take the time

to soak it all in and a population of thoughtful people, who pay a whack of taxes because they care about the wellbeing of their neighbours as much as they care about their own. At least, that’s how I’ve visualized my home and native land when far from its borders. I don’t slap a Maple Leaf on my backpack, when I carry the passport and all it means in my pocket. Clearly, however, I’m in the minority, which is made evident from this survey tidbit: Eight in 10 Canadians agreed that Canadians should put more effort into displaying their national pride. I don’t want to be a party pooper so, by all means, slap on some red and white and get your Canada on this weekend. Kathy Michaels is a reporter with the Capital News. kmichaels@kelownacapnews.com

Bill Barlee one of a kind, sadly missed To the editor: A few days ago Kelowna lost its old friend, Bill Barlee, who succumbed to another stroke in a hospital in Victoria. Bill had wit, intelligence and knowledge. He was admired and indeed envied by all who knew him. Bill was born in Grand Forks to a pioneer family who later moved to Kelowna as dairy farmers (Barlee Road, known by the old timers as “Barlee Stretch�). Perhaps Bill was best known for his award-winning television series Gold Trails and Ghost Towns with cohost Mike Roberts. It played for over 10 years across Canada. He spent nearly half a century researching and writing about the historic small towns and mining camps in Western Canada and the United States. In 2002 Bill received the Queen’s Golden

Jubilee Medal for telling, collecting, recording and bringing to life the history of British Columbia. Many of Bill’s artifacts are in the Canadian Museum of Civilization in Ottawa. But that is only part of the story. Bill was a teacher for 20 years, part of that career being in Penticton. He had a political career that spanned nearly a decade during which he served in two cabinet positions. I got to know Bill through the Historical Society. We invited him to stay with us when in Kelowna and he never tired of regaling us with humorous and knowledgable historical anecdotes. On one occasion we had another guest, Tony Pantages, a young movie producer, and between the two of them the competition for the floor was fierce. Finally, I really got to know Bill through his prowess on the tennis court. He won the

Kalamalka Tennis Club championship seven times. While studying in Vancouver Bill played the Vancouver Lawn Tennis Club tennis tournaments. He played in our Hospital Foundation fundraisers and we had him as our guest of honour in our 2010 fundraising event. Although illness prevented his attendance, his wife Kathleen and family members were present and when informed of the honour Bill’s face lit up with his endearing, charismatic, wide smile. Fifty years ago Bill taught the game to a whole host of youth in Kelowna who today are most grateful for the opportunity to have been here at the right time. We miss you Bill.

Guide) had on women of that era. Many women lived through the Depression and did not waste food whether they were rich or poor. They were smart intelligent women, who used community resources through BC Hydro (Electric) and Edith Adam’s Cottage, to provide qual-

ity food for their families. They sought out canning and freezing workshops taught by knowledgeable, educated women. It is not just today’s women, who are concerned about their families’ food intake. I hope Jennifer Smith recognizes how derogatory her article is towards women of that generation.

Harper nixes helping Canadians in emergencies

To the editor: Yet another stink bomb from the Harper regime: On Thursday morning (June 28) r it emerged that in the wake of the Eliott Lake rescue fiasco, the Harperites are actually cutting federal support for urban heavy rescue programs. That’s in addition to the news that another eight full-time Revenue Canada jobs are soon

to be cut in Penticton. I don’t get it. Harper constantly raves that he’s all about jobs, yet every day we seem to hear that he’s firing people. I guess the jobs he has in mind will be beach-cleaning when one of his bitumen tankers runs aground off Kitimat. Does any of this matter? The Liberal Party of Canada believes we

can have development along with government services and environmental protection. What do you care about? Is it jobs and the economy, transparent government, financial security for seniors, health care, protecting the environment, the disappearing middle class or something else?

To the editor: In Jennifer Smith’s article, Waste Not Want Not (June 15 Capital r News) I found the following paragraph poorly ret searched, biased and offensive. r “In the 1950s and ’60s, only the poor would consider growing and canning their own food, while the

$

dom if ever yield the right of way. Why does this happen? Simply because drivers drive poorly in Kelowna because they can. There is absolutely no enforcement of the traffic bylaws other than speeding or running red lights. For the edification of motorists, yield means yield. It does not mean go as fast as you can to beat an amber light. You wonder about the incidence of accidents between scooter drivers and the automobile driving public. A simple tour down Gordon Drive can

provide the simple truth to my argument. In conclusion allow me to state that the responsibility for traffic regulation has obviously been placed in the wrong hands. The RCMP are neither trained to nor able to regulate traffic in a city the size of Kelowna. To that end I would recommend serious consideration be given to the creation of a municipal traffic authority whose sole responsibility would be to monitor and regulate the flow of traffic through very dense traffic areas. This may involve hiring some 50 employees

but it also might save 10 to 25 serious injuries.

new record for rainfall. Despite the trials such high water levels cause to people, the world goes on, as evidenced by this week’s sighting of a pair of tiny fawns with large white spots who were running like the wind, stopping on a dime to turn and streak back to mom, right beside busy Westside Road. Undeterred by the people stopping to watch the fun these awkward youngsters were having—taking hundreds of leaps to Mom’s single step—they continued on their way up a steep slope to cross yet another busy road, Bear Creek Road, immediately after a large bus had rumbled by. Was it luck or did Mom actually hesitate a moment before making that crossing? I have to wonder why she was shepherding her young family across such busy roads in the middle of the day when the youngsters appeared to be oblivious to all the dangers that were evident to this mom all around them. And, as the long weekend approaches and we all head outside to play, do remember that the water is high everywhere, and streams are flowing far faster than normal, so don’t let kids or pets anywhere near them. A little further advice: Don’t leave anything behind when you head home after playing in the bush, because everyone else is going to be keeping their eyes on those who leave their trash behind and they’ll be taking licence plate numbers, jotting down descriptions of you, along with dates and times and places.

A nod of thanks to that group of local hunters who marshaled their forces and, with the assistance of the regional district, gathered this week to clean up the messes left by the vandals among us in the Gillard Forest Service Road area. It’s unfortunate, but I guess we’re all going to have to take matters into our own hands and be the eyes and ears of the authorities, as well as the maintenance staff.

Police are searching for a suspected thief who ran away from a police roadblock in Rutland Wednesday evening. Central Okanagan Traffic Services members stopped a Ford F150 with a U-Haul trailer at a roadblock on Highway 33 near Daves Road, June 27 at about 5:30 p.m. “The driver and passengers were about to be detained for the purpose of an investigation when the front passenger suddenly fled the scene on foot,” said Const. Kris Clark. “He jumped a barbed wire fence and ran down the side of a ravine to avoid capture by police. A police service dog was used to track the man for a significant distance but he could not be located. The man had apparently gone into a fast-flowing creek and his track could not be re-established.” The trailer was found to contain two ATVs that had been stolen out of Grande Prairie, Alta. The man has since been identified by the police who will be recommending charges of possession of stolen property, said Clark. Although he has not been located, police have received information indicating that he made his way out of the bush and was in good physical condition. The man is described as a Caucasian, 5-foot-10 and 175 pounds, with blonde hair and blue eyes. A clothing description was not available at press deadline. The Kelowna RCMP, with the assistance of Search and Rescue, continue to make efforts to locate the man and are asking anyone that may have seen or heard from him to call the Kelowna RCMP at 250-762-3300.

Cable wake park first of its kind in B.C. Wade Paterson STAFF REPORTER

Three years ago, while in Florida, Conrad Wiker was introduced to the world of cable wakeboarding. He carefully observed a boat-free area where riders were being pulled by an overhead cable system. He then thought about what the sport would look like on Okanagan Lake. “When I first saw it, I was instantly hooked,” said Wiker. “It was a dream of mine to bring it here.” With a first construction phase complete in waters near the northwest corner of the Bennett Bridge, it’s safe to say that dream is nearing fruition. Whiplash Cable Wake Park will open to the public on Saturday. Wiker, who is a teacher at Glenrosa Middle School, said he realized West Kelowna may be a market for a cable wake park after hearing students’ complaints about

limited recreational options. “We’ve had closures of waterslides, bowling alleys and other kidfriendly things. Okanagan Lake is our crown jewel; we needed to somehow tie kids and this lake together.” Using a 480 volt, 30 amp electric motor, Wiker claims that Whiplash is an environmentally friendly alternative to wakeboarding behind a boat. “One tank of gas typically could pull three to five riders, several times in a day,” he explained. “We have the ability to pull 150 to 200 riders in a day with (about) the same amount of energy used. “We have no emissions of any kind being released into the water.” Whiplash features a beginner and an expert cable and can accommodate those riding on a wakeboard, a kneeboard, a wakeskate or a pair of water skis. On the expert cable, several kickers and jumps

are set up to help riders get air. But they can also utilize the cable system to help them fly above the water. “Imagine a big steel elastic. When you pull hard on that elastic, if timed right, that elastic will kick you up. Some of the individuals I’ve seen have gotten as high as 18 or 19 feet in the air.” Wiker said that the current usable facilities at Whiplash are only the first phase of development in the cable wake park. “Next year we have plans for a 725 metre cable—that will be the longest one in North America.”

Sessions start at $85 per half hour at the beginner cable and $95 per half hour at the advanced cable. Time slots can be shared by groups of up to four riders. Wiker said he wanted to keep the bookings costeffective to attract locals and tourists who may not have access to a boat. When asked why he chose to name the park something that people may recognize as a bad thing, Wiker said: “We wanted something where mom and dad wouldn’t want to go—it has a little bit of edge.” Despite the name, he said that safety is a top concern of the park’s.

Tourism dollars for West Kelowna

West Kelowna will receive over $9,000 from the province’s Community Tourism Opportunities program. The money will go toward an image bank ($3,000), the Westside wine trail ($2,000), Music in the Park and Westbank outdoor market ($2,000), promotional materials for events ($1,500) and a cultural brochure ($700). “West Kelowna has some really interesting programs, and while they’re directed at driving tourism, residents also enjoy the Westside Wine Trail, Music in the Park and the outdoor market,” said Westside-Kelowna MLA Ben Stewart. Lake Country was also a beneficiary of the funding. The municipality received $5,000 for a name brand marketing plan implementation.

The benefits of meditation in reducing chronic pain I

n a recent study it was estimated that 10 per cent of people have practiced meditation at least once in the last year. The health benefits are supported by the research.

Psychological Science recently published a paper that demonstrated that a mere seven hours of meditation instruction increased brain wave activity in the frontal cortex which was directly related

to increased duration of a positive mood. Other research showed that experienced meditators experience increased gyrification, or folding of the cortex of the brain.

This is believed to strengthen the information processing ability of the individual. Thomas Jefferson University demonstrated that Alzheimer patients who meditated

for 12 minutes a day for eight weeks had increased blood flow to more centers of the brain and reported improved mood and less anxiety with better memory recall. Many studies have demonstrated the use of meditation in reducing chronic pain. Last year, the Journal of Neuroscience enrolled 15 people who had no meditation experience.

sions. MRIs were conducted prior and after the sessions. Their findings indicated that there was “significantly reduced brain wave activity to the somatosensory cortex, an area is that crucially involved in creating the feeling of where and how painful pain stimulus is.� The participants had a 40 per cent reduction in their pain, which rated higher than morphine, ranked at 25 per cent. The Journal of Psychosomatic Medicine reported that meditation improved the response of the immune system. The researchers administered an influenza vaccine to a group of ‘non-meditators’ and provided them with an eightweek meditation program. The blood tests on the group demonstrated that the meditating group had formed more antibodies to the vaccine than the nonmeditating group. Researchers said “These findings demonstrate that a short program of mindfulness meditation produces demonstrable effects on the brain and immune function. These findings suggest that meditation may change brain and immune function in positive ways and underscore the need for further research.� The above is an excerpt from a publication called The Wellness Express.

turned, the pair wound up living on the same orchard property, Zawaduk soon starting a family and Warren having her daughter a few years later. At one point they agreed to share a roof again. At another, they travelled to India with their families—Zawaduk to study at the Ramamani Iyengar Memorial Yoga Institute and Warren to find new direction and see something new, at Zawaduk’s invitation. “I think my knee jerk reaction was, well, I can’t—I have a daughter and I’m a single parent. But I just had this feeling like, if you don’t go you’ll never know and so we made it happen,” Warren said. Now with a string of trips back to the country under her belt, it’s easy to see the impact that one decision has had on Warren’s life and work. Setting aside the vivid colours and intricate imagery, there’s an indescribably South Asian feel to much of Warren’s acrylics, let alone her block prints. Zawaduk, meanwhile, said that initial trip was integral to her success as a teacher as well. “I had to go to the source,” she says as she describes the founder, Bellur Krishnamachar

STAFF REPORTER

When Rena Warren and Krisna Zawaduk say they want to teach a class for mothers and daughters who want to grow together they know of what they speak. Warren, an art teacher, and Zawaduk, a yoga teacher, have a lot more in common than meets the eye—as do their disciplines. “The practice of yoga really is an art,” says Warren. “And there is art in yoga,” adds Zawaduk, looking over at Warren. “The attention and intention and devotion that she practices in her art, that’s yoga.” Warren and Zawaduk’s relationship goes back a lot farther than such philosophical discussions. They’ve seen each other through school, the births of their children, relationships, new homes and the very paths that earned them their careers. The pair met when Warren was 21 and Zawaduk was 19 when both were studying at Okanagan College. It didn’t take long before Zawaduk moved on, trying to make a go of it in Vancouver. “I wasn’t doing anything glamorous,” she jokes. “I worked in a bakery. Just got out there and started working.” Warren continued school, finishing her fine arts degree, while Zawaduk stuck it out studying the Iyengar yoga they both had tried out through, Margaret Lunam, who taught out of her house on Clifton Road. When Zawaduk re-

Sundararaja Iyengar, his stature and his presence and the depth of practice she’s developed as a result of studying in his presence. It doesn’t take long to see the pair are uniquely qualified themselves to teach both their arts, but spend half an hour with them and you soon find out their relationship is one a few mothers and daughters could learn from too. The pair will realize a longtime dream this summer when they teach a joint retreat focused on each of their disciplines. The retreat runs July 18-22 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. out of the Kelowna Yoga House. Zawaduk will guide participants through yoga asanas, philosophy and pranayama (breathing), while Warren helps the class create beautiful mandalas using block print. The total cost is $250 per person and surrogate mothers and daughters are welcome. For information contact Warren at 250-4885533 or Krisna at 250869-8771 or email nerolidevi@hotmail.com or capricornucopia.hotmail.

ENTERTAINMENT â&#x2013;ź CD REVIEWS

Overshadowed by rock in the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;60s, Beach Boys are now being acknowledged as the great band they are THE BEACH BOYS: THATâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S WHY GOD MADE THE RADIO (CAPITOL) I went on a big buying kick of Beach Boys albums a few years back where, for literally a couple of bucks, you could buy used two-fer CDs from Ebay.

SOUNDING OFF

Bruce Mitchell That is, two albums on one CD so you could pick up lost and forgotten albums like 20/20, Friends, Smiley Smile, Wild Honey, Sunflower etc., that were all post Pet Sounds albums that were of high quality but mostly ignored. Back in the late â&#x20AC;&#x2122;60s, in the zeitgeist of acid rockâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Jimi Hendrix, The Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane, Cream and dozens moreâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;The Beach Boys were considered passĂŠ and definitely not cool. But in the passage of time these albums are all now mostly considered mini classics. Moreover, the passage of time has allowed the Beach Boys

to regain their hallowed status as a great band and Brian Wilson his stature as something of a genius workaholic. Which brings us to Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Why God Made The Radio, the Beach Boysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; first new studio album in nearly two decades. It ainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t bad and perhaps better than expected. Naturally there is lots of nostalgia here but the harmonies are still exquisite especially on the single and title track where Brian must be driving a vintage car with â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;?push button heaven.â&#x20AC;? Meanwhile, the lads offer up a pretty ballad with the soulful Spring Vacation that has a delicious guitar solo from Jeff

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Skunkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Baxter, while the elegiac closing song Summerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Gone has a long fade out, maybe in memory of the two Wilson Brothers who have already passed on. Still, you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ignore those honeyed vocal harmonies on solid songs like Daybreak Over The Ocean, Isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t It Time and From There To Back Again. B-

in his evolution as one of country musicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s biggest stars is that he seems more comfortable and more at ease with each new album. This is a man so comfortable in his own skin and so seemingly blissed out on his own natural dopamine that his music carries a meditative quality that rubs off on the listener. No one can do too many things in a hurried fashion while listening to Alan Jackson performing in his middle aged years. There are several easy loping ballads on this new disc including the new hit So You Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Love Me Anymore where Jackson sounds like lost love is simply emotional water off a duckâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s back. There is one new dir-

ection here with the extended jam workout with country hippie Zac Brown and their tribute to southern Dixie fried rock that clocks in too long for radio play but remains one of the albumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s highlights. As usual Alan Jackson has topped the country charts right out of the chute (he has since been overtaken by the new Kenny Chesney album) but old fans mostly know what to expect and they like it just the same.

Anniversary CD+DVD set. Note that this Glass Tiger Anniversary Edition does not say 25th as the album came out in 1986â&#x20AC;&#x201D;26 years ago where I am guessing that someone at their recording label missed the boat and didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t notice the original release date. Anyway, this GT legacy release is also a two disc affair but there is no DVD. Rather there is a re-master of the 11-track original album plus a 13-track CD full of demos, extended versions, live tracks and single mixes. When this album came out it looked like Glass Tiger were about to become a new Canadian and international sensation with three big hits

Someday, I Will Be There and their signature song Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Forget Me (When Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m Gone) to which this Anniversary Edition is, I suppose, the final testament. Glass Tigerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second album was a minor onehit wonder while their third and final album several years in the making, was a bomb and the band soon split up although they still hit the stages as a nostalgia act. But for convicted fans there are various versions of the aforementioned hits while hard core fans might be interested in the lone demo track by Tokyo, the name of the group before they changed it to Glass Tiger.

Volunteers teach empathy to elementary school children Established in 1996, Roots of Empathy is an award-winning classroom program that has shown dramatic effect in reducing levels of aggression among school children. The program raises social and emotional competence and increases empathy. The programâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mission is to build caring, peaceful citizens through the development of empathy in children in elementary schools. To deliver this program in the school system, instructors from the community are certified through a Roots of Empathy training program. Instructors plan and deliver 27 lessons in an assigned classroom and work closely with participating volunteer families. Instructors come from diverse backgrounds.

Having classroom experience and knowledge of infant development are a major asset, but not necessary. At the heart of the program is a mom and baby who visit the classroom nine times over the school year on a family visit. The Roots of Empathy instructor coaches students to observe the babyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s development and to label the babyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s feelings. In this experiential learning the baby is the â&#x20AC;&#x153;teacher.â&#x20AC;? The instructor uses the babyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s behaviour to help children identify and reflect on their own feelings

and the feelings of other people. To obtain certification, all instructors receive four days of training. They follow a well-designed set of lessons (30 minutes in length) and come into the classroom three times a month (pre-family visit, family visit and postfamily visit) for a total of 27 lessons. All instructors have mentors who guide and coach them in best practice strategies. The training will take place in Kelowna Aug. 28 to 30. If you are interested in learning more or

Do your homework before buying or selling a house. Selling or buying a new house can be a complicated process and involves a lot of planning - and often a little ingenuity, too. Considering the size of the investment you have made in your house, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worth your while to take the time to learn how to protect it and yourself. Here are some tips to get you started: Show your house in its best light. Your house might be competing against others in the area, so youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll want to give yourself every possible advantage. A clean house makes a good impression and shows that the house has been well looked after. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what buyers want to see. A fresh coat of paint and some light decor can revitalize the interior and make it attractive and appealing. It presents a positive image of your house and can help make for a successful sale. Stay informed about housing market conditions. Do your research and learn what factors affect the housing market and the prices in the neighbourhood. Understand how they would apply to your house, either buying or selling it. Scan the news, real estate magazines, the Internet and any other related resources. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also beneficial to consult with industry professionals; mortgage brokers and realtors can advise and assist you with pricing, market conditions, financial processes and legal requirements. Confirm that your insurance coverage is current. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re having an open house, ensure your home and

possessions are protected. Safely store valuables whenever you are having people passing through the house in your absence, and confirm that your insurance is both valid, and provides proper coverage for your house, personal belongings and liability.

ince school ended a couple weeks ago, the atmosphere of self-importance and narcissism in my bedroom has significantly diminished. This is not a result of any change in my own levels of self-absorption, but instead, a decrease in my alarm clock’s haughtiness as it experiences neglect from myself. I have contentedly slept in more days in the last two weeks than I have in the entire school year, and for the most part, my alarm clock is no longer a necessity, at least until the end of summer. But between now and then, I am soaking in the myriad of free time that summer brings. For my seven-yearold brother Jack, this free time fills up with countless episodes of Spongebob. And since we want him to accumulate experiences that don’t solely involve the television, he was told the other day to make a list of other activi-

CONNECTING WITH YOUTH

Amber Krogel ties he could do. As I read through his list, I couldn’t help but compare his summer activities as a seven-year-old to mine as an 18-year-old. Number one: wrestling. While Jack carries this out by impersonating UFC fighters and throwing blankets over people, my equivalent of wrestling involves less sweat and violence. I mentally wrestle with how much time I should be spending in productiveness during summer, because it feels like the two months of freedom I have after an arduous school year should not involve any semblance of school’s work rate. However, most of us know that after a few

weeks of “doing nothing” and following Jersey Shore’s motto of “Gym, Tan, Laundry,” we grow restless. While summer does create room for relaxation, it still encompasses work to some degree. I realized this the other night after spending nearly three hours doing my course selection for university next year. Highlighting the day on my calendar that registration opens is as close as I get to the “colour a picture of Spongebob” activity on Jack’s list. However, my summer lifestyle, as well as that of anyone at Gyro beach, closely resembles number three on Jack’s list: Build a fort. Instead of blankets, we use towels, and we replace walls of pillows by barricading ourselves with tanning essentials and friends on either side, allowing us to work on our tan and look popular at the same time. But as someone whose natural paleness

often incites questions from others as to whether or not I am feeling okay, my tanning attempts are disheartening. Thankfully, Kelowna provides a number of other things to do in summer. Between Parks Alive and music festivals like Keloha, there’s always a good band to catch. You can grab an ice cream from Moo-Lix and walk off the calories that are hindering your beach body as you check out the other stores along Bernard St. And of course, we have the beautiful Okanagan Lake and the wakeboarding, boating and communal toilet it provides. In some ways, my little brother’s summer activity list is enviable. But as teenagers, we have a list that allows us to enjoy summer in Kelowna even more than on Jersey Shore.

SPORTS Beavers dominate Crows in the rain In a preview of this weekend’s B.C. Rugby League championship game, the Surrey Beavers out-muscled the Kelowna Crows last weekend in Kelowna, using a torrential downpour to its advantage. The Crows and Beavers will meet this weekend in the B.C. Rugby League championship game in Vancouver and Kelowna now knows what it is up against. Surrey downed Kelowna 28-14 in Kelowna, using a power game in what turned out to be tough conditions, thanks to a downpour that lasted most of the game.

Surrey has a bigger team that loves to use its size to move the ball, while the Crows are smaller and quicker. However the wet conditions meant the game was won in the trenches and Surrey proved too strong. Surrey jumped out to an 18-4 lead in the first half before Kelowna got going. Just before half time a smart kick along the ground into the Beavers in goal area was regathered for a Crows try by Dane Peterson. The try was converted which kept the Kelowna team in the game at half time but still behind the Beavers 18-10. As more rain fell in the

second half, Surrey continued to dominate and the Crows struggled to control the ball. Two more Surrey tries gave them a 28-10 lead nearing the end of the game. Kelowna showed their never give up attitude by scoring the last try after finally getting the ball out wide to the strong Caleb Campbell who kicked ahead and regathered to score out wide. The try was not converted but made the full time score a 28-14 win by the Surrey Beavers. The two teams will meet in the championship game on Saturday in Vancouver.

Two TOFC teams march toward Canadian championships The Thompson Okanagan Football Club U-13 boys and the U-18 boys both won playoff games last weekend and are off to the coast to continue playoff action this weekend. U-13 Boys The TOFC U-13 boys played a disciplined game en route to a 3-0 win over Fusion FC to advance to a first place showdown this weekend. The local side was up 1-0 at the half thanks to a beautiful, 35 yard free kick from Mitch Morgan of Lake Country. In the second half, TOFC had to battle it out all over the park but the team’s training and discipline paid off. Ethan Beselt of West Kelowna played a well-timed ball into the box for Morgan to head it over the keeper for his second of the game, making the score 2-0. Morgan then set up the third goal, playing a nice ball into the box for Connor Glennon of Vernon to slot home his 7th goal of the season making him the league’s top scorer in his division.

Head coach Shaun Flanagan was happy with the total team effort in the win. “This was our first season in the league and our goal was to establish ourselves as a top four team,” he said. “We had a disappointing start to the season. Though the team was playing well, we weren’t getting the results, dropping a lot of easy points and that usually comes back and bites you.” The team managed to pull things together in the second half of the season and now face Surrey United in a game for first place this weekend. “We’ve never played well against them but we can take them with the same kind of performance,” said Flanagan. U-18 Boys Having secured a regular season 3rd place finish, Thompson Okanagan FC U-18 boys drew a large crowd on a wet Sunday afternoon at Mission Fields in Kelowna to watch the quarter final

match played against the Burnaby powerhouse club, Mountain FC. In a tight first half, Okanagan’s midfield threesome of Kelowna players Mackenzie Rigg, Dhaamin Clarke and Andrew Stevenson were tireless in closing down Mountain’s space. It was Stevenson who came closest to opening the scoring for the home team just before half time, clipping the bar with a header from a great cross played in by Robin Whittaker. The game however remained scoreless at the half. The second half started at a furious pace, as both teams went in search of the opening goal. It was the Thompson Okanagan team who struck first 10 minutes into the second half when Matt McHugh won a free kick just outside the penalty area. Andrew Stevenson struck the ball with pace and swerve towards the top corner that was turned aside by Mountain FC’s keeper. The pressure was building though and from the resulting corner kick, Cole Kingzett (Penticton) managed

to fire the ball home from close range for a 1-0 Okanagan lead Mountain would tie the game 1-1 later in the half and the team’s went to extra time. The game was looking like it was heading for a penalty shoot-out when Sean Czerwonka produced a match winning goal from nowhere. Czerwonka beat his full back and cut inside the penalty box for the shot, which looked harmless enough but was misjudged by Mountain’s keeper and the ball ended up in the net. 2-1 Okanagan. The Okanagan team kept their composure in the dying minutes and held onto the 2-1 lead to record a memorable victory, and to reserve a spot in this weekend’s semi final to be played in Coquitlam town centre against Coquitlam Metro Ford FC. The eventual winners of the Premier Cup will represent BC at the Canadian Soccer Association National Championships, to be held in Nova Scotia in October.

Kelowna hosts archers Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

Life-sized replicas of giraffes, elephants, moose, monsters and gargoyles will all be among the targets used for an international archery tournament next month in Kelowna. The Rinehart R100 competition, featuring more than 500 competitors from B.C., Alberta, Saskatchewan and Washington, will be held July 7 and 8 at the Heartland Ranch, 10 minutes east of the city. “All the targets will be three dimensional,” said local event organizer Ken Garwasiuk, who owns Hardcore Archery in Kelowna. “The younger kids, their eyes are just going

to light up when they see these elephants and giraffes. They are very elaborately made, very detailed.” On the course, Garwasiuk said competitors will shoot high-tech long bows at a total of 100 3D targets during the event, or 50 per day. The Kelowna tournament is one of 18 stops on the Rinehart R100 tour this year. It’s the first time the event has been staged in Canada in four years, and the first time ever in Western Canada. “It’s taken four years to get them to come here, it’s been a huge endeavor but well worth it,” added Garwasiuk. “It’ll be huge for archery in our community and great for the city, with

a lot of hotels and camp sites being filled up.” Garwasiuk said the sport has enjoyed a spike in popularity over the last couple of years in North America, largely due to the portrayal of archery in Hollywood movies such as The Hunger Games. There are currently more than 800 people in the Central Okanagan who practice archery on either a competitive or recreational level. It’s a big year for archery in B.C. as Vernon’s Silver Star Resort will be hosting the Canadian 3D championships from Aug. 4 to 6. For more information on the Rinehart R100 competition, visit www. r100.org, or call Ken at 250-861-5297.

Blais is BC Hockey’s Coach of the Year

Field hockey champs

A Kelowna Minor Hockey coach was named the BC Hockey Coach of the Year last weekend at the B.C. Hockey annual general meeting in Whistler.

Three Kelowna field hockey players will be among nearly 200 players gathering in Surrey this weekend for the 2012 Field Hockey Canada Senior National Championships. Abigail Raye, Madeleine Swordy and Carys Swan will take part in the event, being held at Tamanawis Park, June 29 to July 3. Raye will play with the women’s junior national team while Swordy will play for the Team B.C. Under-18 white team and Swan will play with the B.C. U-18 yellow team. This year will feature five men’s teams, representing Alberta, British Columbia, Ontario and the Canadian Men’s Junior National Team. Six women’s teams will com-

BC Hockey district director Lochie Bell presented the award to Blais in front of close to 600 delegates. “Eric epitomizes what Ernie Gare was all about in his commitment to youth and his dedication to helping nurture our greatest resource” Bell said. In a press release, the Kelowna Minor Hockey Association said Blais has been sharing his passion for hockey with kids for a long time. “It is with great pride that we congratulate Eric on this amazing accomplishment and well deserved honor,” KMHA stated. “We at KMHA recognize the asset we hold in Eric Blais and wish him much more success in the future as he continues to share his passion for hoc-

key with the children of Kelowna Minor Hockey Association.” The Kelowna Minor Hockey Association itself was presented with a prestigious award in the form of the B.C. Hockey President’s Award. The award capped off the evening and is presented to a minor hockey association that shows growth on the ice but more importantly celebrates the humanitarian efforts of a member, team or organization that goes above and beyond to support it’s community. KMHA was acknowledged for providing its local community food bank with the largest donation of food from a single organization in the history of the food bank, providing support for the

local Salvation Army during the Red Kettle campaign and for the distribution of food hampers, for its game day program. Among the humanitarian efforst of KMHA was the adoption of a needy family at Christmas and a donation of equipment that went to Ecuador to enable players in that country to enjoy a game of road hockey. “We have set a standard in our association that other’s across the province marvel at and it was very clear as this award was presented that our efforts certainly did not go unnoticed,” KMHA stated Kelowna Minor Hockey president Leonie Popoff accepted this award from BC Hockey president Shannon Bell.

Roundup of Central Okanagan golf

Kelowna Golf and Country Clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s associatee professional Jamie Stevens blew away his goall of 360 holes by completing 472 holes in a 24-hourr period earlier this month h as part of a fundraiser forr the ALS Society of B.C. From 9 a.m. on Junee 18 until to 9 a.m. on June 19, Stevens ripped around the Kelowna club in an effort to raise money for the ALS Society of B.C. and public awareness for the horrific disease. During his 24 hour marathon Stevens was on fire, recording 116 birdies and six eagles, including a late night hole in one on the 13th hole. Switching from the full course to a shorter, around-the-lake rotation for the night portion of the marathon, volunteers setup glow sticks on the pins and in the holes and acted as spotters and drivers shedding some light on the putting greens and tee boxes. Stevens and eight volunteers witnessed his second ace in five weeks and surely the first in Kelowna made at night and using a glow ball. Congratulations to Jamie on his tremendous personal achievement and a fundraising campaign that has exceeded $5,500. For more information and to donate to this cause, visit www.golfathonforals.ca. â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘ The skies cleared and the sun came out for the 70 golfers that continued the chase for playoff positioning at the Okanagan Golf Clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Molson Tour recreational golf league

on Monday. The Quail Course was a challenge for the players who accumulate points with the stableford scoring system. Among the highlights were the closest to the pin winners who included Logan Lampert, Enzo DelaĂĽurentiis and Wade Fleming while the long drive was a blast by Darcy Sigfuson on the second hold and the long putt was nailed by Kyle Blanleil. Here is the updated top 10 standings 1. Dennis Young 2. Dave McMahon 3. Gary Higgs 4. Jim Malazdrewicz 5. Mike Fisher 6. Cal Warren 7. Craig Foster 8. Jeff Bishop 9. Jay Heer 10. Mike Bird â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘ Black Mountain golf course has a new set-up for golfers in the lower handicap region to further challenge themselves. Single-digit handicappers are invited to try the gold/blue combination where golfers can play the gold tees on the par 4â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and 5â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and the blue tee on the par 3â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s.

The RCGA course rating on the gold/blue setup is 69.4 and the RCGA Slope is 125. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great way to enjoy the course from a different distance,â&#x20AC;? said GM Eric Thorsteinson. â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘ Christina Lake Golf Club in Christina Lake is set to host the most talented female golfers in the pprovince July 3 to 6 for the 2012 British Columbia Golf Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Amateur and Mid-Amateur Championships. Located on the scenic Kettle River, Christina Lake GC (Par 72, 6,189 yards) has the Monashee and Selkirk mountains providing a gorgeous backdrop for the players who are competing to lift the Flumerfelt Cup as Amateur champion. Coming off a double title at the 2011 Championship, Christina Proteau of Port Alberni looks to defend her impressive victory. The format for the Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Amateur includes both gross and net competition. The net competition is 54-holes; gross is 72-holes (cut after 36 holes). The Mid-Amateur is a 54-hole gross stroke play competition with no cut. The Master-40 Division is for players aged 40 and older as of the first day of the competition. The top-3 competitors from the British Columbia Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Amateur Championship will also be selected to represent British Columbia at the Royale Cup Canadian Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Amateur Championship

to be held July 24-27 2012 at Lethbridge CC in Lethbridge, Alberta. â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘ When Jason Podollan was finishing his professional hockey career, finding a place to call home was key. Podollan had played all over the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;including the NHLâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;but was seeking a place to lay down some roots. His home away from hockey was Vernon, so he naturally leaned to one of his favorite spotsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; Predator Ridge Resort. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every time I came back to Predator, I thought it was a special spot,â&#x20AC;? he explains. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I ended up staying here.â&#x20AC;? Now that his time on the ice is finished, Podollan finds respite from the daily grind of his business career by spending time with his wife, Sarah, and the coupleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s young children. He jokingly says what started as a bachelor pad has turned into a place where he and his family can get in touch with nature, grab a coffee or hit the range at the resortâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s golf course. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so much right outside my door,â&#x20AC;? says Podollan, who lives in Falcon Point. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have hundreds of acres to explore. You can walk the dog, or grab a muffin, or take the kids to the range. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so much.â&#x20AC;? Predator Ridge has also changed since he moved to the property seven years ago. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a lot of kids at the time,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But that has really changed in recent years.â&#x20AC;?

Musketeer duo will miss their leader T

Park and play at Kelowna parks

hen there were two. The ‘Three Old Musketeers’ have lost their leader. Like so many Kelowna residents, I was deeply saddened last week by the death of Barry Urness. Kelowna has lost a great human being. Barry and I were very close friends and I already miss him dearly. Because of Barry, this world is a better place, and I am a better and stronger person. There is also no question that as a community we are so much richer in sports and culture than before Barry Urness came on the scene. Barry was much more than just a friend to me. Much like my friend Howie Meeker is, Barry Urness was a friend, big

HODGE PODGE

Charlie Hodge brother, father, and mentor. He was also (over the years) a co-worker, fellow board member and my chiropractor. In fact, I knew Barry when he was the chiropractor for my parents. I largely kept in touch with ‘Bear’ for several years on a ‘need you’ basis. My back would seize up and I would call Barry to say, “I need you.” However, going to Dr. Urness was never a quick fix. First, you would get

the five or 10 minute warmup chat as he checked in with your life, then shared his latest sporting escapade, usually involving the Okanagan Sun football team or helping some community event. When I ran for Kelowna city council three years ago, Barry pumped me up with advice and wise suggestions during our back snapping sessions. I found his ability to cut through things to be amazing. After being elected to council, I was named chairperson of the Kelowna Civic Awards committee, on which Barry was a member of the sports committee, that he had served on apparently for the previous 22 years. We served three years together after that. Remarkable.

Barry Urness Soon Barry, myself, and a third character with a love for laughter and sports, Al Paterson, began to get together once every month or two for a lunch and swap yarns. It was the beginning of a wonderful ritual. When I was defeated along with five other incumbents in the 2011 civic election, I was devastated. Naturally, I did my very best to pretend I was not that badly hurt or wounded because, well, that is the nature of the game. Regardless, I was pretty rocked and Barry knew it. He also knew there would be lots of folks, or at least a few key folks, who would be there to console me. So Barry took the old-fashioned sport coach, dad approach and gave me a gentle kick in the ass. In Barry’s own gentle but-to-the-point way he got me back into the fight. I am so glad he did. I hid out for two months following the election, but finally both Al and Barry would not

take ‘no, I’m busy’ one more time and dragged me out of my house for a burger and beer. After that, the lunch ritual of the ‘Three Old Musketeers’ (as Kamel Abougoush at the Grateful Fed dubbed us) increased to once every three weeks or so as we’d check in on each other, swap some lies, warm up some memories and share a lot of laughs. The long years of shared friendship and stories flooded back, each of us remembering incidents involving the three of us from some previous time, or individual humorous scenarios involving other media or sports folks we all knew. The stories never ended. We three also spent a lot of time discussing our various medical situations and shared our thoughts on things at a level seldom shared over lunch in a restaurant by three guys. The full understanding that all three of us were plain bloody lucky to even be alive, and that our candlewicks may not be long, enhanced our meaningful lunches. About two months ago, when Barry’s expected wick was set to very short due to his progressed stomach cancer, we made a point of gathering more often. “Why not? We have no time to waste,” Barry said, gleaming in his big beautiful smile way. As always, Barry was right.

FreshAirCinema, a family owned B.C. business, works alongside Cinema4Change, a non profit organization whose mandate is to use the power of film to strengthen communities and improve lives. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Proceeds from the Kelowna event this year will be directed to the Okanagan Boys & Girls

Club,â&#x20AC;? added Bashnick. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We believe our event provides them with a great way to raise awareness and important funds to continue the work they do.â&#x20AC;? The Kelowna movie showing is the first of 18 such events across the Thompson and Okanagan regions this summer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Building on previous yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s success, we are very happy to have partnered with Interior Savings Credit Union to present this series once again,â&#x20AC;? added Bashnick. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We see such a social atmosphere before the event where friends and family just relax and enjoy each otherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s company. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At dusk everyone settles in and has a fantas-

Light audit leads to savings for businesses

More than 1,300 small businesses in the Okanagan and Kootenays are reaping big savings on their electricity bills thanks to a $6.85 million lighting installation program sponsored by the province and FortisBC. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Small businesses in the Okanagan and Kootenays wanted a program that would make saving energy both easy and cost effective, and in partnership with FortisBC, we delivered,â&#x20AC;? said Kelowna-Mission MLA Steve Thomson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Over 1,300 small businesses had energy-efficient lighting installed and are now saving more than $800 a year on their bills.â&#x20AC;? FLIP, the FortisBC/ LiveSmartBC Lighting Installation Program, offers eligible small businesses direct installation of up to $5,500 in energyefficient equipment at virtually no cost, including lamps, occupancy sensors and controls. To date the program has saved more than 8,779,928 kWh, enough electricity to power approximately 700 homes per year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was surprised about the immediate and longterm savings that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll achieve for my business through FLIP,â&#x20AC;? said Greg Smith, of Kelowna Physiotherapy Associates. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So far Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve saved hundreds of dollars in energy costs, allowing me to invest more in my business and less on my electricity bills.â&#x20AC;? When business owners

register for FLIP, a FortisBC-approved contractor performs a lighting audit on their business, identifies potential upgrades, and schedules a licensed electrician to install the equipment and systems.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;FLIP has been a great, success story because the program has been designed to make it easy for small businesses to participate without having to worry about the time and the cost of making the up-

grades,â&#x20AC;? said Tom Loski, vice-president, customer service, FortisBC. â&#x20AC;&#x153;By understanding the needs of small businesses, we can continue to invest in energy conservation programs.â&#x20AC;?

TRAVEL Summer business travel to Munich, Frankfurt: long, hot Alan Behr CONTRIBUTOR

MUNICHâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Traveling alone while on business during the summer can make you feel cut off from both the familiarity of home and the pleasures the place you are visiting. It can sometimes seem as if you leave and return and see and experience nothing in between except the harmonious monotony of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s conference rooms. The secret to preventing that is to leave enough time on your schedule actually to participate in local life and, to the extent that your business relationships permit, to invite the people you have come to work with to join with you. I had those rules in mind when I landed in Munich on a hot summerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s day. Once the most recognizably German of the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s major cit-

ies, Munich has been transforming itself into what the Germans call the northernmost city of Italy. In the summer, cafes open their street-side tables, and no one even thinks of sitting inside. Munich does not even appear tolerant of its own cliches these days. The Hofbraeuhaus, famous for beer served to tourists and for locals huddled together at their Stammtische (regularsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; tables) so as to avoid the tourists, closed soon after the dinner hour had passed, even as locals waited in line for outdoor tables at Schumann, a popular cafe less than 10 minutes away by foot. Schumannâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also serves good beer, albeit in smaller portions than the standard Mass (one liter) at the beer hall. The scene at Schumannâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s indeed had a very Italianite look to it. Add a cappuccino here and there, and it would

have felt like a night in Verona. I ended up at Schumannâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s at the recommendation of local business associate, after a see-andbe-seen dinner (alfresco, of course) at the popular Oskar Maria, in the Literaturhaus. The American artist Jenny Holtzer has provided the Literaturhaus with artworks containing her aphorisms and sayingsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the poignancy of which largely continue to elude me. As with many Munich restaurants with a contemporary eye, the traditionally robust Bavarian cuisine has been lightened up, with such dishes as beef tartar with a fried quail egg. A visitor from France perhaps wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hunt in Munich for French cuisine, but I know enough people in Munich who certainly would, which explains the popularity of Le Faubourg. The menu,

Soon after a business associate and I arrived, a thunderstorm broke, sending all diners indoors except for a young couple, who stayed at their outdoor table, sheltered by

foliage, enjoying their wine. The picture windows of the restaurant remained open, and the rain fell in sheets, pelting the street and the tables and filling the air with the fra-

grant melancholy of a summer rain. People in Munich are proud of their city and like to show business colleagues around. If you get a chance, see if a local will take you into the Englischer Garten, which is to Munich what Central Park is to New York: a capacious, rambling park with something different going on in each corner. In one area, people sunbathe in the nude, but where a business associate and I went one afternoon was an area full of families and of young men surfing the strong rapids of a stream called the Eisbach. Each had a surfboard secured to his ankle and each waited patiently for his turn. The goal was to try to stay as upright as long as possible. The lone woman among them, ris-

TRAVEL Germany from A32

ing above the torrent in a green wetsuit, did not last long in her attempt, but spectators admired her persistence as she returned to take her place back in line and try again. For a good part of every summer, the city prepares for the famous Oktoberfest, which takes place mostly in September. One of the offices I visited was directly across from the field of â&#x20AC;&#x153;tentsâ&#x20AC;? being built for Oktoberfest. The work takes months to complete because many of the tents are in fact large and comkplete wooden beer halls, tkept in storage the rest of the year. I toured the grounds with my contact from just across the way, as workers went about their jobs, ignoring us as they put together what looked like a theme park dedicated to beer. My colleague said that she had just bought her third dirndl, the tradritional Bavarian dress that women wear to Oktoberfest. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everyone looks good in a dirndl,â&#x20AC;? she explained. â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘ I took a fast train from Munich to Frankfurt and arrived in a very different kind of Germany. Frankfurt is not large by world standards, but as Germanyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s skyscraper-topped financial center, it is the tallest and outwardly most immediately impressive city. Unlike Munich, where a good summerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heat will bring even professional people outdoors in shirtsleeves, in Frankfurt, bankers in crisp suits filled the sidewalks, ties knotted tight. It is a bit more challenging in Frankfurt to pretend to yourself that you

are not there on business when you actually are, not only because of the way people dress but because the city is so business-oriented and visually contemporary. You can feel it in the streets. The stores are busy, people are on the move, and almost everybody clearly has something important to do. A key thing to remember about financial centers, however, is that food and culture follow money. That is why there are great restaurants in Frankfurt and why an impressive row of museums graces the Museumufer (museum bank) on the relatively tranquil southern bank of the Main River. With business associates, I enjoyed a brilliant meal at Lohninger, the restaurant of an Austrian chef, Mario Lohninger, who was named the Gault Millau chef of the year of Germany for 2011. The small restaurant, shaped like a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Vâ&#x20AC;? and with large ground-floor rooms with high ceilings, offers a chefâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s menu of tasting portions. One of the great advantages of dining with colleagues who are local is that they tell you what is best to do, and I was very well informed to take the chefâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s menu, which was presented as a deliberate mystery. You do not know what you were getting until you get it, from the amuse bouche to (that night) the â&#x20AC;&#x153;strawberry surpriseâ&#x20AC;? dessert, which featured the conical red berry multiple guises. In between, you might be treated to favorites from the regular menu, including oxtail soup and a fillet of beef with scrambled eggs. It is always good to leave a couple of extra hours on the last day of a business trip because that

is when you have to run and buy presents and do other things that remind everybody back at home that you thought of them while you were away. Near the Villa Kennedy, my sophisticated and demure hotel in Sachsenhausen, on that more relaxed southern side of the river, I found an antique store, Laterna Magica Antiquitaeten, where I bought mid-century jewelry for my wife. Antiques dealers always know the best restaurants in their neighborhoods. It was on her recommendation that I went to the very traditional Zum Gemalten Haus. The name means the painted house, and that is exactly what it is. It sells several kinds of sausages and a variety of potato dishes, and you get the local specialty drink, the apple wine, served either as a spritzer or straight up. Drinks come to you in a copper holder and bread arrives separately, in a large sack. In informal German restaurants, you help yourself to a seat at a table occupied by others, and my seatmate was a local, wearing a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Frankfurt am Mainâ&#x20AC;? T-shirt, no less. What makes for a suc-

cessful business trip? Getting your business done successfully. What makes a business trip enjoyable? Leaving enough time for yourself to have fun in the company of people you know. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what in business is called a win-win. For a business traveler, location is essential. My favorite hotel in Munich and my pick in Frankfurt offer complementary alternatives. On the theory that when time is short you want to be near both work and pleasure, when in Munich I stay at the Vier Jahreszeiten. It gives me a base right on the fashionable Maximilianstrasse, putting within reach everything from historic churches to the Hofbraeuhaus itself. And the value of having a great lobby bar to which you can invite business associates cannot be underestimatedâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;especially on hot days. On the alternative theoryâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;having a quiet retreat while undertaking the pressured life of the business travelerâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;when in Frankfurt, I stay at the Villa Kennedy, which is on a broad street in a residential section of Sach-

Subaru BRZ makes fun simple Jim Robinson CONTRIBUTOR

There’s something to be said for keeping things simple. Subaru has managed to hit the affordable sportscar sweet spot with the 2013 BRZ by doing just that. The well-equipped entry model with sixspeed manual transmission starts at $27,295 and $28,495 for the six-speed automatic version while the push-start ignition with smart key also adds to the convenience of the Subaru BRZ Sport-tech Package that has a starting price of $29,295 for the manual and $30,495 for automatic. And that’s about it, one basic car with two transmissions—simple. BRZ stands for Boxer, Rear-engine, Zenith. Renown for their all-wheel-drive cars and CUVs, the BRZ is the first front engine, rear-wheeldrive vehicle ever produced by Subaru.

It probably never would have come about except for Toyota investing (currently 16 per cent) in Subaru and its exceptional engineering prowess. As proof, Canadian Residual Value Awards from automotive insights company ALG, the industry benchmark for residual values, had Subaru winning best-in-class honours for the 2012 Impreza, Outback and WRX/STI as well as being named Best Mainstream Brand for the third year in a row. Subaru is the only firm that offers a 500,000 km maintenance schedule (that’s right, 500,000 km) because their cars stay on the road so long. Collaborative work started just over two years ago. Toyota has long wanted an affordable sportscar but they are in the business of building hundreds of thousands of models. But Subaru is in the

MOTORING

Handling, performance are hallmarks of a performance car Subaru from B1 business of producing tens of thousands of cars, perfect for both their purposes. In Canada we will be get the BRZ and Toyotaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Scion division will sell their version called the FR-S. There is also a Toyota model called the GT 86 sold elsewhere in the world. What takes a sporty car and turns it into a sportscar is the handling and performance. Subaru, like Porsche, uses horizontally opposed or â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;boxerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; engine architecture. Because all the valves and pistons are on the same level as the crankshaft, it has a much lower centre of gravity. But in the BRZ, Subaru made the engine squatter so its centre of gravity is just 460 mm above the ground. That is 18 mm lower than the Porsche Cayman and a hair below the (until now) reigning champion Ferrari Italia at 469 mm. As it sits in the BRZ, the engine is 120 mm lower than the Impreza. In the BRZ, the en-

gine sits 240 mm farther back than the Impreza helping fix the weight ratio at 53:47, front:rear. Even the radiator had to be canted back 17 degrees to accommodate the lower front hood line. The six-speed manual and six-speed automatic are sourced from outside, but true to Subaru, 80 per cent was modified to their specifications. The six-speed manual features a short-stroke gear lever which is optimized for rigidity, shift accuracy and weight. The six-speed automatic transmission has a ĂĽSportsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; mode for immediate shift response. In ĂĽManualâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; mode the driver can use the steering wheel-mounted paddles that feature a downshift ĂĽthrottle blippingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; system. With 200 hp and 151 lb/ft maximum torque, the BRZ is one of the very few naturally aspirated cars you can buy boasting 100 hp/litre. Just a decade ago this would have unheard of in a production car, let alone one starting under $30,000. The induction intakes were designed to let out

THE CLOSE coupled interior features soft touch materials and very supportive sports seats for driver and passenger. It was designed to accommodate a full rollcage for amateur racers. a snarl you can hear the closer it gets to the redline. It is not unlike the last air-cooled Porsche I drove but more subtle. Fuel consumption (premium required) is 9.6/6.6/8.3L/100 km city/highway/combined for the manual and 8.3/5.5/7.2L/100 km city/ highway/combined for the automatic. Suspension is a close cousin of the mighty

WRX STI with MacPherson struts at the front and a double wishbone independent rear. During the press launch held east of Portland, Or., getting into the BRZ wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t that difficult but it is low slung. The high transmission tunnel separates the cabin into two separate seating zones. There is a back seat of sorts but with the

front seat all the way back, there is zero knee room. Subaru says the interior was designed to take a full rollcage because they know more than a few BRZ and FR-S cars will be turned into club racers. The engine architecture is loosely based on VW Beetle principles. I owned a 1990 Subaru Loyale wagon with a 1.8-litre flat four putting

out a modest 88 hp. It was light and nimble but the only problem was, like the Beetle, you had to keep the revs up and row through the gears to keep at a higher engine speed. If the revs feel away so did the torque The BRZ was curiously the same. On the highway, it was not noticeable but on the rolling foothill roads up the Columbia River Gorge, I found it best to keep my foot in and use the paddle shifters to pick the best gear-rev ratio. With the manual it was the same but the six gears made it a whole lot

more enjoyable. With the big brakes and the relatively low weight (1,220 kg), the BRZ was truly in its element. Entering a sharp, low-speed bend all that was needed was blip of the gas, a neat little snick down a gear or two, and then back into a sweeping left or right with the standard TORSEN limited slip differential adding to the rear grip. And then on the gas and the BRZ would charge off into the next bend with the flat-four snarl rising

Fordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Power of Choice Rob Beintema CONTRIBUTOR

Sometimes it seems like adding more alternatives just makes choosing more difficult. Which is why Ford Canada launched a 2012 Power of Choice Tour, that started in May and visiting eight cities across the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary, Saskatoon, Winnipeg, Ottawa, Montreal and concluded recently in Toronto at the Allstream Centre on the Canadian National Exhibition grounds. Focused on telling Fordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s electrification and sustainability story through local media, the tour featured Ford experts and offered behind

the wheel experiences, designed to answer current questions and illustrate a wider range of consumer choices. â&#x20AC;&#x153;By offering a range of technologiesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;everything from fuel efficient gasoline engines, hybrid, plug-in hybrid and full electricâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;we are truly giving our customers the power of choice,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; said Steve Ross, manager, product marketing, sustainability and electrification. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re giving Canadians the flexibility to do what they need to do while getting great fuel economy.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Some of those new vehicle and technology choices highlighted on the tour include:

FORD ECOBOOST ENGINES Fordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s EcoBoost lineup blends gasoline direct injection with turbocharging to make big engine power in a smaller engine size. Ecoboost engines can deliver up to 20 per cent better fuel economy and can reduce CO2 emissions by up to 15 per cent on regular octane fuel. Ford is offering EcoBoost engines in 11 vehicles in 2012, up from seven in 2011, tripling the production capacity of EcoBoost-equipped Ford vehicles (1.5 million engines globally). Ford customers have taken to the EcoBoost solution, illustrated by the sales numbers of the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most popular productâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the top-selling F-150

C-MAX: Since its latest generation introduction in late 2010, the Ford C-MAX has doubled its sales numbers to over 135,000 units sold across Europe. Two North American-built five-seater hybrid versions from the C-MAX lineup will be coming to Canadian dealers this fall. The 2013 C-MAX Hybrid is a standard hybrid, combining a lithiumion battery with a smaller four-cylinder 2.0-litre Atkinson gasoline engine. The battery is recharged when the gasoline engine is in operation and by a regenerative braking system that recaptures more than 95 per cent of the braking energy. The 2013 C-MAX Energi is a plug-in hybrid. It is charged by connecting the vehicleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s external charge port to either a standard 120-volt outlet or available 240-volt charging station. Virtually all the C-MAX Energi components are the same as the regular C-MAX Hybrid but, with a bigger battery, it will benefit from a longer electric-only range at the cost of some cargo room and 150 kg more curb weight. Both models are aimed squarely at Prius competitors in their respective classes. More info and specs will be available closer to vehicle launch.

Remember Everyone Drives a Used Vehicle!

The 2012 Fusion Hybrid earned very respectable fuel economy numbers of 5.7/6.5L/100km (city/hwy). The new 2013 Fusion Hybrid should do even better, replacing the nickel-metal hydride battery with a lighter lithium-ion version and using the new,

more efficient 2.0-litre Atkinson-cycle four-cylinder gasoline engine instead of the previous 2.5-litre version. As in the C-MAX lineup, Fusion will also offer a plug-in Energi version to compete with the Chevy Volt. Both versions will be available by fall. Fordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s increased sense of sustainability actually covers the entire Fusion lineup, using recaptured products. Every vehicle includes the equivalent of 39 pop bottles for seat fabric, two pairs of jeans for sound absorption filler and 30,000 soy beans for seat foam, along with other recycled plastics and tire rubber. New vehicle ingredients in future may include materials made from dandelions, coconuts, corn, and even shredded U.S. currency is being looked at. Talk about putting more money into your product.

2012 FOCUS ELECTRIC:

And, finally, Ford Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Power of Choice Tour offered a test drive of the 2012 Focus Electric, a pure electric vehicle. As with most electric vehicles, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s little in the way of drama, even with such a radical departure from the norm. Yes, the battery and components add over 300 kg of extra curb weight but, aside from some discreet badging, the electric version looks like any other Focus. Hit the start button, push the go pedal and the Focus Electric accelerates from a standstill with all the silent subtlety of a golf cart. The electric motor See Ford B5

ES sedan bolsters Lexus 2013 lineup Jim Robinson CONTRIBUTOR

Solid as a rock has been the story of the Lexus ES sedan since it bowed in Canada way back in 1990. However, Lexus has an issue to overcome in that the RX CUV accounts for the largest volume of sales in Canada with the sedans following up behind. So the mantra is to keep all the expected Lexus values while upping the attractiveness of the sedans, starting with the sporting GS earlier this year and now the 2013 ES entry-level luxury five-seater. Lexus officials said the main effort was to provide more of the same with design enhancements which makes sense as ES buyers tend to have already owned as least one and are quite content. Therefore styling is definitely evolutionary not revolutionary; some of the changes being a switch

to the new ‘spindle’ grille form and L-shaped LED running lights across the bottom. In many ways it looks like the more costly GS, which is not a bad thing. At the rear the gasoline version has two tail pipes while the hybrid’s single exhaust is hidden. The majority of change is on the inside where bumping out backseat space was a priority, something that is crucial for the Chinese market which Lexus is anxious to plumb. Most of this comes courtesy of the 1.8-inch longer wheelbase with results in 2.8 inches more knee room thanks to rear seats that are also recessed even thought the battery pack is behind the seat in the hybrid. Another change is in the centre stack which is multi-layered like the GS with the infotainment monitor placed higher than before but with the signature analog clock in the middle of the stack.

On the transmission tunnel is another signature touch, the Lexus Touch Interface (RTI) which is like the controller on a video game for the infotainment/climate/phone/ etc systems. Optional is the Display Audio Package that comes with the navigation system. We got lost twice on the press ride and drive launch and tried to call up the navi system, but the controller was so sensitive I was defaulting all over the place. Quite by chance I somehow placed a call to the live, turn-by-turn navi help system and got the call centre located, believe it or not, in Sault Ste Marie although we were in Oregon. Similar to the OnStar system, Wendy got us back on track and downloaded the route as did Ted when we got lost (yes I admit it) a second time. Instead of leather, the ES now comes standard with polymer, envirofriendly NuLuxe seating

Piano black trim predominates in the cabin with accent pieces being Bird’s Eye Maple in the V6 or Bamboo in the Hybrid. Options on the inside include a power rear sunshade plus manual rear side window sun blinds. A feature of interest

is a camera mounted at the front in the headlight assembly that lowers the high beams when it sees the lights of another car approaching in the opposite direction. The drivetrains on the two 2013 ES model couldn’t be more different, except they both power the front wheels. The ES 300h has a 2.5-litre inline four-cylin-

MOTORING Lexus from B6 axle. When operating on the battery alone, the Vehicle Proximity Notification System sends out an audible tone at speeds up to 20 mph that increases in frequency with speed, because the electric

only operates silently. The ES 350 uses the tried-and-true 3.5-litre DOHC V6 with a sixspeed automatic transmission. It produces 268 hp and 248 lb/ft of torque. Here the driver can select three drive modes, Normal, Eco and Sport. Again, Lexus refused

to talk about fuel numbers of the V6 until they are verified by Transport Canada. Suspension remains coil springs over MacPherson struts at the front but the rear has been changed to a dual link system. Lexus said this was

done for a more precise feel but also for smoothness. But you can tell the difference. The ES 350 is taut while the Hybrid’s rear is softer with a longer rebound partially because

THERE ARE two engines on the 2013 ES available, a 3.5-litre gasoline V6 (shown) producing 268 hp and a 2.5-litre, four-cylinder/electric motor producing a combined 200 hp.

My son forever traveled through a moonless night with only the roar of wind for company. His hands were stretched forward, grasping for balance instead of pleasure. He didn’t ask who he is or why. Questions were a luxury. Gravity pressed Brian so hard against reality that he did not feel the points at which he touched it. He lived each day in an act of drowning. For him there was no shore. Brian was here for such a brief time & we miss him very, very much. Love Dad, Rosemarie & family.

On Thursday, June 21st, 2012, at the age of 69, the Lord welcomed Barry James Urness into his eternal home. Survived by his loving wife Betty of 44 years, son David, wife Alison and children Kaelin and Erik, and son Dean and children Sarah, Emma and Naomi, brother Ted (Joey), Jack (Brenda), and many nephews, nieces and extended family. Barry was born in Windsor, Ontario and grew up in Regina, Saskatchewan. From a very early age Barry’s love of sports and people became a focus for the rest of his life. Barry and his bride moved to Kelowna BC in 1968 to start a practice of Chiropractic. Barry’s unique ability to engage and involve people in all walks of life gave him opportunity to be involved in a wide range of sports and community endeavors. Barry was a recipient of Kelowna’s Man of the Year Award in 1988 and this past April was presented the Anita Tozer Award given to an individual or group in recognition of an extraordinary and positive contribution to the quality of life in Kelowna. Earlier this week, it was announced Barry would be inducted into the Okanagan Sports Hall of Fame, an organization he founded in 2008. Among his many involvements, he was a founding member of the Okanagan Sun Junior Football Team, member of the Civic Awards Committee for 25 years, President of the Kelowna Amateur Sport Society, Vice President of Sports Facilities & Equipment for the 1994 BC Summer Games, Provincial Director of the Duke of Edinburgh Awards, Honorary Chair of the Mission Creek Greenway and president of Kelowna Amateur Sport Society. Barry was a visionary who worked tirelessly for the good of others. Above all, Barry loved his family and sincerely cared for the welfare of his friends and patients. Cancer invaded Barry’s body but he refused to let it touch his spirit. Most of all, to the joy of his family, he trusted in his Saviour, Jesus Christ, the only true connection to God. He will be deeply missed. A celebration of Barry’s life will be held at 2:00 p.m. on July 4, 2012 at Trinity Baptist Church, 1905 Springfield Road, Kelowna, B.C., officiated by Pastor Tim Schroeder. In lieu of flowers, if you wish to honor Barry’s life, donations may be made to an organization of your choice. Condolences may be sent to the family by visiting www.springfieldfuneralhome.com, 250-860-7077.

Helen Holyk 1923-2012. Helen Holyk passed away on May 10, 2012 at the age of 88. Helen was a remarkable woman who lived a rewarding life filled with challenges. Helen is survived by her beloved grandchildren Angela Bailey and James Bailey and son-in-law Geoff Bailey, who all presently live in Edmonton. She was predeceased by her son, Glen, her daughter Christine, her husband Walter, and her son Nick. Helen was a caring high achiever throughout her life. In 1947 she was named Woman of the Year at UBC for her work helping servicemen integrate into university after WWII. After marrying Walter and starting her family, Helen devoted her life to her family and to helping others deal with mental illness. While president of the Canadian Mental Health Association, Helen founded the Kelowna Branch of the B.C. Schizophrenia Society. She helped advocate for rights and programs to support those suffering with mental illness and their families. She volunteered with the University Women’s Club, B.C. Schizophrenia Society, the Canadian Mental Health Association, and the Kelowna Mental Health Society. Helen was active at the Unitarian Fellowship of Kelowna including serving as a long time chair of the Social Justice Committee. Helen’s gracious faith, optimism and wit were engaging, and her commitment to working for a more compassionate world inspired many to do likewise. She truly lived her belief that everyone is worthy of respect and dignity. Just as Helen worked so hard serving others during her lifetime, during the last 3 years of her life after she suffered from a series of severely debilitating strokes she depended so much upon others for support . Through it all, Helen was never self pitying and she lived her life with courage and compassion for others, to the end. Special thanks go out to Helen’s good friends, Fae Shaw and Sterling Haynes who worked tirelessly assisting Helen after she became disabled. Additional thanks go out to: Dr Robert Williams for his compassionate care when Helen was most vulnerable; friend and paid companion Phyllis Cannell; private Care Aide Christie Balderson; and the staff and volunteers of Cadder Court unit in Cottonwoods .” A celebration of Helen’s life will be held on Sunday, July 8, 2012 at 3:00 p.m. at the Unitarian Fellowship at 1310 Bertram St., Kelowna. If you wish to honour Helen’s life with a gift, please follow in Helen’s footsteps and make a donation to the BC Schizophrenia Society at www.bcss.org

Creating storage space

Mortgage finance rules changed

Chaos from B19 cent of men and 22 percent of women state that leaving items on the bathroom floor is a top annoyance in the bath. Luckily, freeing the floor can be simple, by using your shower for storage. No, we don’t mean hiding items behind the shower curtain, but by adding a double curved shower rod, which can serve as an excellent place to hang towels, robes and other items. The double-bar design provides an extra bar for bath essentials when the two curtains are hung together on the interior bar. Plus, the curved design provides an extra five inches of elbow room for a more enjoyable shower experience. To accompany your new curved shower rod, incorporate shower rod hooks to fully utilize the

THE CURVED double-bar shower rod can serve as a bathroom accessory for hanging towels, robes and other items. storage space with style. These S-shaped hooks are easy to install—simply snap them right onto your shower rod—to offer convenient access for a variety of items. Available in the most popular finishes to coordinate with other bathroom accessories, your bath will look great and keep items such as pajamas, loofahs or shaving kits off the floor and within arms’ reach. To accomplish an organized bath you need to have a designated place for everything. But if your floor or vanity space is limited, where else can you look? Wall shelves can be the

perfect solution for storage—and create a beautiful look in your bath. The key is to view the shelves as ‘decor’ not ‘storage.’ First, choose a stylish design in a finish that coordinates with the rest of your bath hardware. Then, add decorative baskets or jars to place on the shelves to hold your items. Soon, you’ll have storage space disguised as decoration. With these simple storage solutions, your bath will be an oasis of organization for you to wake up and enjoy each morning. More information is available on line at the website www.moen.ca.

As was indicated during a press conference held by Finance Minister Jim Flaherty last week, changes are coming effective as of July 9 regarding government backed mortgages. Let us outline below some of those changes Flaherty talked about for qualifying for that new home mortgage or refinancing on your existing home: The maximum allowable amortization for high ratio mortgages goes from 30 to 25 years. That means for a $350,000 mortgage at three per cent, it will increase monthly payments by $184 over 25 years compared to 30 years. Over the lifetime of the mortgage, however, the homeowner will save $33,052 in total interest payments as the home is now paid off five years earlier. Buyers can still get a mortgage with as little as five per cent down while the conventional mortgage on a personal residence will still require 20 per cent as a down payment. The maximum percentage to refinance will drop from 85 to 80 per cent, a recognition of the fact Canadian homeowners are excessively in debt, something Flaherty want-

ed to address. For example, a home with a value of $400,000 under the current 85 per cent guidelines allows for refinancing up to $340,000. Effective July 9, under the new guidelines that figure would drop to $320,000. The government will no longer be in the business of insuring homes that are worth more than $1,000,000, meaning buyers will need to put up at least 20 per cent down. If a high ratio mortgage is required, prospective buyers’ debt servicing ratios will be changed to 39 per cent for “gross debt service” and 44 per cent for “total debt service.” Gross debt ratios are based on the monthly mortgage payment, property taxes and heat for gross debt service. Total debt ratios are based on the gross debt servicing combined all other payments that include personal loan, credit card and credit line monthly payments. The above changes are all in addition to the qualifying terms that have taken place since 2008. Those steps taken by the federal government to strengthen the standards for government-backed insured mortgages included: • requiring a minimum down

payment of five per cent for owneroccupied properties and 20 per cent for rental/speculative properties; • requiring that borrowers meet the standards for a five-year fixedrate mortgage even if they chose a mortgage with lower interest rate and shorter term; and • withdrawing government insurance backing on lines of credit secured by homes. All in all, you can see by the above changes that the government wants to make it more difficult for Canadians to purchase/refinance their properties than it was four years ago. Time will tell in the months ahead what impact that has on the housing market both for buyers and sellers.

SHOWCASE W MINIATURE GARDENS

Creating a fairy garden haven in your back yard Kathy Van Mullekom CONTRIBUTOR

Susan Bradley loves the beach near her home. When she can’t get there, she enjoys a bit of beach at home—as part of a new miniature fairy garden in the back yard of her Hampton, Va., home. In a corner, there’s a sandy shore done with desert sand. Itsy bitsy sunglasses rest on a small round table next to a beach chair, and flip-flops smaller than a fingernail are flung in the sand. A beach pail the size of a thimble holds a collection of seashells; a fishing pole waits to be used. That corner of the garden was only the beginning for what is now a 15 sq.ft. landscape that she and son-in-law built with 2-by-10s, 2-by-4s and 4-by-4s. It stands on legs for easy viewing from the back porch, and is filled with a mushroom compost and sifted topsoil mix. Once the beach was done, Bradley added a graveled walkway that leads to a fairytale-style stone house where a smiling fairy greets you. Two

more fairies are seen in the landscape created with living miniature trees and shrubs—Fairy Hair Japanese maple, dwarf cypress and a Corokia contoneaster, commonly called wire-netting bush. White-flowering bacopa trails across a black metal arbor. Koi swim in a pretty pond, and a bird bath waits for visitors. “The sky is the limit on what you can do,” says Bradley, her sun-tanned face beaming like a child at Christmas. “You can theme your garden however you want. I now just wish I had made it bigger.” After researching and planning, Bradley ordered her house and most accessories online, choosing everything for a 1-to12 scale. She paid $300 for the

house but much less for other mini accessories like a picnic table, grill, push mower, shovel and spade, working wishing well and fence. Bradley purchased her plants locally, paying $80 for the special maple and $5 to $16 for other plants. She uses Elfin thyme for grass and other herbs for accent plants; mosses and succulents work nicely, too. “I would rather hold and see the plants in person,” she says. For Jennifer Leslie, fairy gardens bring back warm childhood memories. She’s done several small container and hanging-basket styles for her yard, and recently ordered a gazebo with a weather vane and other accessories to create more. “I grew up playing with miniature dollhouse,” she says.

A MINIATURE birdhouse (above photo), chair and rope swing create a miniature vignette. A full-size red wagon (left photo) makes an idea container for a rolling miniature garden. “It has always been a project on my list to restore the dollhouse that my dad made me when I was 10. The miniature fairy gardens give me the pleasure of creating and caring for a miniature garden without the time and expense it would take to restore my dollhouse. “I often find myself lollygagging about my yard, gazing at the miniature gardens. One morning, the lemon thyme was waving back and forth, and I found a mini-

ature praying mantis living in one. How perfect!”

FAIRY GARDEN TIPS Place your fairy garden where everyone can enjoy it—near a path, next to a bench or by a main entry. Locate it in a part-sun location—morning or afternoon, but not both— for best plant health. Use a container with good drainage and fill with a high-quality potting soil; make it freeze safe, too.

Pay attention to plants —the size of the leaf matters as much as the overall plant or tree size. Use dwarf conifers as tiny shrubs and trees as garden structure first, creating the “bones” of the garden. Keep furniture, accessories, stones and gravel in same scale; large rocks make good “boulders.” Add patios, walls or bridges. Protect the garden from heavy rains and wind.

Enjoy it seasonally— plant a mini tree to decorate for Christmas; add a tiny bale of hay or resin pumpkin for Halloween; place some hearts for Valentine’s Day. Consider an in-ground garden—they are little work, only need weeding and fresh mulch annually. “ I think the fascination of these gardens is the imagination they inspire for young and old,” says miniature garden landscaper Pam Shank.

Uncluttering a bathroom overwhelmed by crowded chaos While the bathroom may be one of the smallest rooms in the home, it is also the area where we

store a multitude of items, from cosmetics to cleaners and from laundry to linens.

With this in mind, it’s easy for the bathroom to feel more like crowded, cluttered chaos than the

spa sanctuary we long it to be. Luckily, with a few conscious attempts to

control the clutter, bathroom storage woes will cease and you can create a bathing haven to put you

at ease. According to an online consumer survey conducted by Moen, a lead-
