Rain wreaks havoc on cherry crops

One woman is in hospital and her two cohorts behind bars, following a police chase that scattered bullets from West Kelowna to Vernon. Local Mounties and the New Westminster police are currently investigating separate legs of a chase that started Tuesday just after 1:30 p.m. on Boucherie Road, and car-

ried on for nearly 70 kilometres to Swan Lake in Vernon. Although police have failed to release further information on the incident since that night, what’s clear is that the dramafraught drive started when police attempted to stop the “suspicious� green Dodge Caravan with two men and one woman inside. “They fired shots at the (West Kelowna)

have yet to be confirmed, it’s believed Cpl. Richard Gringas, with the North Okanagan RCMP detachment, was most seriously at risk. Once it was clear the van was headed to Vernon, Gringas head-

More than a million dollars in losses have been sustained by the tree fruit industry due to rain and hail storms in the Okanagan in the past couple of weeks reports the provincial agriculture ministry’s production insurance branch. Some growers have lost their entire crop of cherries as the result of a series of storms that tore through the valley the last half of July. General manager Byron Jonson says there were 10 distinct hail events and a lot of small storms in the past two weeks. In particular, hail and rain devastated some areas both Friday, July 20, and Friday, July 27, while inbetween multiple storms inflicted various levels of damage in different areas. Worst hit was the south Okanagan where there are overall moderate to severe losses to the cherry crop, he said. Rain has caused more damage than hail, because when too much moisture hits a warm, ripening cherry it plumps it up too much—until the skin can’t stretch any more—and it splits, rendering the fruit unfit for consumption. Some varieties of cherries are more prone to damage from splitting when it rains just as fruit is ripening, while some of the newer varieties developed at the Pacific Agri-food Research Centre in Summerland are resistant to such damage. Jonson said there was also some damage to peaches, but it’s too early to say whether any of the apple or pear crops were damaged by the hail. He estimated there are around 350 producers in the southern part of the valley who were affected by the stormy weather. At this point, however, he said growers are required to file a notification with the production insurance branch to say they may have sustained a loss, but often it’s not yet known how widespread that loss is, or whether there was definitely any damage. There were significantly fewer growers in the northern half of the valley who sustained damage, although there were still some who lost their entire crop, he said. It had been estimated this year’s crop would be larger than usual, but this will reduce the overall amount of cherries that will head to market.

A discarded cigarette blamed for causing fire Kathy Michaels STAFF REPORTER

Life is gradually returning to normal for the residents and employees of a Glenmore retirement home that was engulfed in flames Monday morning. “People are rattled and some have been displaced, but everyone I’ve talked to is coping really well,” said Alex Miller, president of Caretenders Retirement Living, which manages the Highlands Retirement Residence. “Otherwise everyone is in good health and there were no really serious injuries from the fire…just a few were treated for smoke inhalation on site.” Although a number of residences won’t be ready for a while longer, Miller said power, water and all the alarm systems …IN THE NEXT were operational by WedFEW DAYS WE’RE nesday morning and that meant roughly 20 resiHOPING TO GET dents were back in their PEOPLE MOVED homes by day’s end. INTO THE REST “Then, in the next few OF THE USEABLE days we’re hoping to get people moved into the SUITES. rest of the useable suites,” Alex Miller he said. As for those who lived in the burnt portion of the building, it’s still unclear what will be torn down and what will be left as is, as the fire inspector had just arrived on-site to determine that by Wednesday afternoon. Many of those residents, Miller said, are lucky to have family to stay with nearby, while the rest have been placed in a hotel. And when they return, all residents will likely have to revisit the retirement centre’s smoking policy. Fire investigators looking into the blaze have concluded it was likely accidentally sparked by a cigarette. “It was caused by discarded smoking material in a planter located at the exterior rear of the building adjacent to unit No. 59,” said Thomas Doherty, deputy fire chief. “An accumulation of combustible material in the immediate area of the fire added to the fuel load which caused the fire to quickly spread throughout the structure.” The Kelowna Fire Department also said residents of Highlands Retirement Residence would be well served to use caution when discarding smoking materials and to do so in non-combustible receptacles a minimum of one meter away from any combustible material. The fire broke out early Monday morning, and luckily, none of the residents, employees or passersby who dived into the burning structure were injured. Some 40 firefighters were called to the scene and managed to save the bulk of the building, but the back 18 units were destroyed in the blaze, which was described by the fire department as difficult due to the weather conditions.

Blood donation: Take the time to save a life Wade Paterson STAFF REPORTER

Gerard B.du Coudray is no stranger to the Canadian Blood Services office on Dilworth Drive. He stops by every 56 days to give an hour of his time and a pint of his blood. B.du Coudray hit a milestone Tuesday when he sat down to give his 125th donation. “I started in 1970 back in South Africa and it stuck with me. One pint (can) save three lives,” he said. “I think donating is a good idea—for me, it’s a long-term commitment.” Although B.du Coudray isn’t the only Kelowna resident to hit the 125 mark, Ariella Eini, donor services manager with Canadian Blood Services, said the milestone is “quite an achievement.”


GERARD B.du Coudray donates blood Tuesday for the 125th time at the Canadian Blood Services office on Dilworth Drive in Kelowna. “A healthy donor can donate once every 56 days, so that’s about six times a year if you’re really consistent about it,” said Eini.

“So 125 donations probably represents at least 20 years of donation.” Canadian Blood Services is eager to find more

donors like B.du Coudray. The organization recently decided to open its doors every other Saturday to help increase donations. “The summer tends to be a really difficult time of year for us…we tend to see a bit of a drop-off in terms of our donor support. It coincides with the time of year when there’s a higher incidence of traffic accidents. We work hard over the summer months to make sure our clinics are full.” Eini said that all donations are beneficial; however, Canadian Blood Services is especially interested in donors with blood type O negative. “We’re always in need of all blood types because we work closely with hospitals—since hospital patients have every blood type, we need every blood type. “Blood type O nega-

tive is the universal donor, so their blood can go to any patient, no matter what their blood type is. They’re only seven per cent of the population, so we’re always on the lookout for them.” B.du Coudray said he wishes more people would understand the importance of donating their blood. When asked what his message to those who haven’t donated is, B.du Coudray said: “Take an hour to save a life.” Canadian Blood Services in Kelowna is located on Dilworth Drive, open Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., and alternating Saturdays, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The next Saturday opening is Aug. 11, then Aug. 25.

City to host national slo-pitch championships The Slo-Pitch National Championships return to the city’s Mission Recreation Park Friday, Aug. 3 through Monday, Aug. 6. This will be the third time the championships have been held in Kelowna. This year’s tournament is the largest of the three, thanks to park upgrades completed in 2012. “We’re looking forward to this weekend’s event because this will be the first time the new lights on baseball diamonds 5 and 6 will be used,” said Don Backmeyer, sport and event development manager for the City of Kelowna. “Upgrades and improvements are important to attract new or returning events to our city and they benefit our community members who use these fields for sport leagues and everyday recreational activities.” In 2009, the Slo-Pitch National Championships used newly constructed baseball diamonds 5 and 6, which will again be used in this year’s tournament. The city invested $600,000 in lighting this year to allow for night games on these diamonds, an improvement that contributed to the championships returning to Kelowna this weekend. A total of 42 teams from across Canada, including two all the way from Newfoundland, will participate in the four-day event, which is free for to families attend.

THE BODY of a paddleboarder who went missing Monday was pulled from Okanagan Lake in Lake Country on Wednesday morning. DOUG FARROW/CAPITAL NEWS

Missing paddleboarder found The body of an Oregon man who went missing while paddleboarding near a friend’s home Monday night was pulled from the lake Wednesday morning. Kelowna RCMP received a report of a missing person on the 4000 block of Finch Road in Lake Country July 31 at 9:30 p.m. “Apparently, a 73-year-old man from Oregon arrived in town the previous day to visit family,” said

Const. Kris Clark. “At approximately 7:30 p.m. Monday night, the man took a paddleboard out onto the lake but didn’t return. “Unfortunately, he wasn’t noticed to be missing until the following night. “By all accounts, the man was a strong swimmer, experienced paddleboarder and in good physical health.

“The initial searches were unsuccessful.” The body and a paddleboard appeared in the area of Finch Road around 8:30 a.m. Wednesday, and Kelowna RCMP were called in to assist. The body has since been confirmed as that of the missing Oregon man. West Kelowna RCMP are assisting the B.C. Coroner Service with the investigation.

Banks find room to expand in Central Okanagan market Wade Paterson STAFF REPORTER

For residents of the Central Okanagan, it shouldn’t be too hard to find a bank. An online search suggests there are at least 96 banks from Vernon to Penticton. And several more are on the way. Valley First Credit Union opened the region’s newest bank at Vintage Hills in West Kelowna this past Friday. Another Valley First branch will be opened in Rutland this November. A few weeks before that, RBC opened its newest branch at Okanagan Lake Shopping Centre in West Kelowna. In a time when more banking services are available online than ever before, some might find it puzzling that ribbons are still being cut in front of brand new financial institutions.


WESTBANK FIRST NATION Coun. Mickey Werstuik (left), Valley First Credit Union president Paulette Rennie, West Kelowna Mayor Doug Findlater, Valley First branch manager Kevin McCarron and Valley First supervisor of cash services Donna Breisch cut the ribbon in front of the credit union’s branch, opened last week at Vintage Hills in West Kelowna. But according to Paulette Rennie, president of Valley First, there is still a need for the traditional

banking experience. “A constant focus for us is to keep a strategy in place to balance between

online services and faceto-face services. We believe there’s room in the market today for both,”

said Rennie. He noted the older generation is a key customer base that utilizes

branches for most of its banking needs; therefore, many banks are needed for the Okanagan’s retirement community. “They enjoy the interaction with the staff— they have long-term relationships that they’ve built over the years. A lot of them don’t have the access to online services that (younger generations) do,” Rennie said. The Valley First president added that the current trend of several bank openings may not continue down the road. “We have different demographics that require different services. I think we will find that over time we will get smarter at recognizing (whether or not) our footprint needs to be as big. “It’s a tremendous investment for businesses to keep up with growing technology, and at the same time, look after branches and make sure



they keep up with the times as well.” No matter how much online banking increases in popularity, Rennie said there will always be room for a certain number of branches. “We always believe that we will need to have that face-to-face presence with our membership.” wpaterson@kelownacapnews. com

in November, 2011 at the age of 96. Always an avid supporter of music education, she left a legacy of $20,000 to the Kelowna Community Music School, where she was an honorary board member and generous donor. As a former teacher she combined her love of classical music with education by donating scholarship money to the music school for many years. The scholarships are awarded annually through an adjudicated audition process. Over the years, many students benefited from her generosity and went

on to pursue careers in music. “Receiving the McIntosh award three times was very encouraging,” said Pascal Piché, a talented Kelowna violist currently studying music at McGill University in Montreal. When the music school recently received the news that it would be receiving a legacy gift of $20,000, its board of directors deliberated on how best to honour McIntosh for her generous gift. The board unanimously agreed to establish an endowment fund in her name at the Central Okanagan Foundation. “The endowment fund

was established to ensure that future music students at the school will benefit from Marie’s generosity, as all annual disbursements from the fund will go to school scholarships,” said Michael Dorsel, president of the board of directors. Established in 1976, the Kelowna Community Music School is a notfor-profit organization offering private lessons and group music programs to over 600 students annually. The school currently has three endowment funds with the Central Okanagan Foundation supporting scholarship programs.

One suspect being treated at KGH Forest fire fully contained Chase from A3 at Gringas’s cruiser from what was assessed to be a “high-powered rifle.” Although some bullets made contact, they eventually stopped shooting and settled for trying to run him off the road. He maintained his course, and escaped unscathed. In fact, no injuries on the RCMP side of the investigation—which involved at least 10 cruisers from Kelowna, North Okanagan and West Kelowna detachments— have been reported as of yet. Details around how the trio were able to carry on so far with police so close on their tail remain unclear. They were able to switch vehicles twice, Clark said, noting that the Caravan was exchanged first for a red pickup truck then a black pickup truck. It’s believed this was necessary because their tires were shot out at one point, and they had to resort to driving on rims. They also

ran over two spike belts. But allegations that they made the exchanges by car-jacking victims on their route, are unconfirmed. Eventually, they went off-road and tried to flee on foot. Once apprehended, two men were brought to Kelowna lock-up, while the woman went to hospital to deal with injuries that may have been incurred during the chase. As all this was happening, Westside Road and the Bennett Bridge were shut down to traffic for the protection of the public, although there were no shortage of sightings. One eyewitness said there was a large RCMP presence at the intersection of Highway 97 and Westside Road. “They were not allowing any traffic onto Westside Road, and as the suspect vehicle was getting closer, you could hear all the sirens,” said the witness, still trembling from the event. “Police then stopped

traffic and told all of us to get down in our vehicles. “The suspect vehicle raced through there and I know I heard shots fired, or maybe it was tires being blown out, but then they were racing toward Vernon.” Police officers who weren’t in the throes of the chase were also at the edge of their seats, listening to the details of a chase that’s unusual fare for this city. “I was down in the operation officers room listening to what transpired on the radio and… any time our members are being shot at, it’s pretty scary stuff,” said Supt. Bill McKinnon. “I was certainly hoping throughout that no one would get hurt.” As is, the only injured party was the unnamed woman suspect who was in the suspect vehicle. McKinnon said police did exchange fire with the trio, but he couldn’t speak to how the woman was hurt. That’s what the New

Westminster police were called in to do. “That’s part of our new policies and procedures any time that anyone is hurt by the RCMP,” he said. They’ll likely have an update on that investigation Thursday. The rest is being taken over by the Southeast District Major Crimes unit, which had yet to release information by press deadline on why the vehicle was considered suspicious or what, if any, charges would be pressed against the suspects.


Firefighters got the upper hand on the blaze that put residents living in the Wilson’s Landing area on high alert for most of the week. The wildfire that was sparked Friday night, was 100 per cent contained and the evacuation alert was rescinded as of Wednesday afternoon. “Seventy firefighters are continuing to mop-up the smouldering ground fire. Smoke may be visible for a number of days as crews continue to work toward the centre of the burnt area,” said Kayla Pepper, the forest service fire information officer. Although they firefighters were able to keep flames from the 50 or so homes

in the area, it wasn’t without a significant effort. Hot, dry and windy weather combined with a steep terrain made it challenging conditions to re-establish containment, which was lost Monday. The fire was sparked by lightning on Friday night but was declared contained by noon on Sunday. A steady breeze increased “fire behaviour” throughout the night, said Swan, and that kicked debris downhill, across tinter-dry land and past a fire line crews initially set up. By Monday morning it had doubled in size and an evacuation alert was issued to 40 to 50 homes in the Jenny Creek subdivision, as well as those along Blue Grouse Road, Browse Road and parts of Westside Road, all in the Wilson’s Landing area of West Kelowna.

City hosts lawn bowling nationals

B.C. UNDER-19 champion Connor McGowan, of Kelowna, will be the local favourite next week at the Canadian junior lawn bowling championships to take place in City Park. CONTRIBUTED

The battle for junior lawn bowling supremacy in Canada gets underway Monday at the Kelowna Lawn Bowling Club’s green in City Park. Thirty of the top players from across the country will be here for the 2012 Canadian Junior Bowls Championships from Aug. 6 to 14. Kelowna’s Connor McGowan, the B.C. Under 19 champion for the second year in a row, will be leading the charge. The organizer and KLBC vicepresident Alan Stirling is exhausted from working almost non-stop for more than six months on the endeavour, but confident that everything is ready to go. “It was a huge challenge to put it all together, but we’re ready to go,” said a satisfied Stirling of the effort

that has a $15,000 budget. One of the points of concern and pride for the local club was the state of the green, which was practically in ruins only two years ago. New president Byron Nate brought the club back from the brink and semi-volunteer turf expert Martin Kroll has rehabilitated the green to the point where it is “one of the best in all of B.C. by a mile,” according to Stirling. The championships kick off with an opening ceremony on Tuesday at 9 a.m., after which roundrobin play gets underway in the Under 19 competition. The Under 18s conclude Thursday, with a special pairs competition following on Friday and Saturday, and the Under 25s World Cup Selection event on Sunday and Mon-

day. The top players from the older complement will represent Canada in international play in 2013. Stirling, who is also McGowan’s coach, says the bowler, who repeated as B.C. champ in North Vancouver two weeks ago, is “excited but nervous” to be playing in his hometown. McGowan, who turns 17 on Aug. 11, is going into Grade 12 at Okanagan Mission Secondary School in September. The City of Kelowna will be erecting a bleacher seating 400 at the east end of the bowling green for the event. Admission is free. Food and refreshments will be available in the clubhouse throughout the event. Contact Stirling at 250-317-9505 for further information.


Top prize awarded to researcher A UBC Okanagan sciences student—admittedly a nervous speaker— dazzled judges and took top prize for his presentation at an international showcase of almost 60 undergraduate students from 23 of the world’s leading universities. The global Undergraduate Research Conference at Univesitas 21, for researchers under age 21, was held in Tokyo, Ja-

pan, earlier this month. On the heels of a topplace finish at the Multidisciplinary Undergraduate Research Conference (MURC) in Vancouver last March, Ryan Trenholm of the Irving K. Barber School of Arts and Sciences took home the Top Oral Presenter award during the second day of the conference in Tokyo. In all, seven awards were handed out at the

conference. Trenholm was one of three presenters from UBC, and the only representative of UBC’s Okanagan campus. He was also the only Canadian to win an award. His talk, Reducing Water Usage in Civic Parks Using Adaptive Irrigation, was an adaptation of his award-winning MURC presentation. “I still can’t believe I won,” said Trenholm,

from Tappen, B.C., who describes himself as a nervous public speaker. “I have come away with so much more confidence in myself. “My family and professors had so much faith in me, and now I feel like I can do anything. The experience really improved my life. It made me a better person, a better student and a better researcher.” Trenholm credits the whole experience to the journey that started with his Undergraduate Research Award (URA) Project. “My URA summer research project led to MURC, which led to the U21 Conference in Japan,” he said. “I studied Japanese in high school and getting the chance to go to Japan and represent UBC was the opportunity of a lifetime.” Trenholm follows in the footsteps of another Barber School student, Andrew Hughes, who won the Best Presentation award at the U21 Research Conference in Melbourne, Aust., in 2010. Trenholm graduated this year with a BSc in Computer Science. He will begin his master’s program at UBCO this fall.

Ominous sounds at the lake not always what they seem



Judie Steeves

t was very quiet at the high elevation lake we’d been fishing and we’d come in to light a fire and roast a couple of hot dogs for lunch. There were some menacing black clouds moving across the sky, as well as some beautiful fluffy white ones backlit by the sun and with blue sky as the background, so I was trying to get some photos of the effect of the two. Suddenly, I heard the oddest rustling noise. It wasn’t like an animal or a bird moving through the bush because it was too consistent: not like steps amongst the underbrush, but steady, like wildfire. I looked out across the lake, which was bordered on all sides by thick forest, and instead of the loon, diving for fish, or the occasional ring where a fish rose to the surface, there were small fish jumping far away on the other side of the lake. However, it continued and it wasn’t just the occasional one jumping; there were hundreds and the phenomena was moving across the lake toward me. As each one jumped out of the water there was a water spout or spurt that leaped nearly a foot into the air above the surface of the lake, so across the lake it looked like hundreds of white sticks rising out of the lake above the dark blue surface of the water. And that rustling continued, moving inexorably toward me across the water. Suddenly, I realized there were no fish jumping; those were huge drops of water being hurled into the lake from that black cloud above us in the sky.

Then it became obvious those were not drops of water, but big hailstones, the size of my thumb, and they began hitting me and bouncing off the ground all around me. I ran for our vehicle and once inside it became an all-out onslaught of banging and pinging as a flurry of hailstones slammed into the tin roof above our heads, bounced off the windshield and the hood and covered the ground in white. Our little campfire stopped shooting out the occasional flame as it died down, instead emitting curls of smoke and ash as the hailstones landed and melted against the heat, steaming as they evaporated. The seats of our camping chairs sagged with the weight of the ice balls and the ground went from being dusty and dry to being muddy, with spurts of dirt hitting everything in sight; and then running with dark water as the storm subsided into a torrential rainstorm. Instead of a day of fishing, we’d had a morning, and now all we wanted to do was get out from under that black cloud, if only the rain would stop long enough that we could rescue the boat and our gear. It took a soaking to finally gather up all our stuff, and we literally did drive less than a kilometre away from the lake before the downpour had quit and everything was dry. Ain’t the weather weird? I may have got skunked that day, but I had a note from Larry

noe trip with my friends, Jordie and Laurie Bowen of Selah Outdoor Explorations. They’re planning a trip around Vaseux Lake in the south of the valley Aug. 16 and another across Okanagan Lake to Rattlesnake Island on Aug. 18 for a little adventurous exploring with the family in a big voyageur canoe. For details, go to: com/site/selahoutdoorexplorations Or, if you’d prefer to spend very little for a great family outing that is informative while you walk, take the Kelowna Museum’s walking tour of historic downtown Kelowna. The next ones are Aug. 11 and 18, and they begin at the Okanagan Heritage Museum, 470 Queensway Ave., at 10 a.m.

Each is about an hour long, and includes a guided walk by some of the city’s historic buildings and monuments, for a donation to the museum. Enjoy the weather of summer, whatever Mother Nature decides to throw at you. Judie Steeves writes about outdoors issues for the Capital News.

Keep calm in the face of tragedies


e have been confronted by our share of tragedy in the past month: Twelve people shot to death in a Colorado movie theatre; two people, including a 14-year-old girl, killed at a Toronto house party, just weeks after two died in a shooting at the same city’s Eaton Centre mall; four people—including three from the same family—died after a mudslide swept through Johnson’s Landing in rural B.C.; Thursday, a young German shepherd dog died after being

left in a Vancouver dumpster. The tragic, heart-wrenching—and, sadly, incomplete— list is enough to make one’s head spin; to make some question what is going on in the world, in their community and even in their neighbour’s backyard. It may even give some pause; hesitate to do things—like go to a new movie, for example—that normally would be done without a second thought, for fear of being added to that ugly list. Tragedy, we know, is not a new thing. It is seen, heard, photo-

graphed, shared, tweeted, debated and what-have-you every day. It can be accidental or the result of incomprehensible intent. It leads to front-page newspaper stories, headlined television broadcasts, based-on-fact movies and best-selling biographies. Sometimes, tragedy will beget tragedy—a family member distraught by the death of a loved one decides to take their own life; friends angered by the shooting death of a close pal take justice into their own hands, triggering further violence, loss and

grief. But, amidst all the pain, anger and frustration at the senselessness, should we stop living our daily lives? Taking that stance would only compound what has happened. It would show those who perpetuate such acts that they are indeed powerful. It would teach our children to be afraid, and there is nothing to gain from that. There may not be any good in what has happened of late. But why make it worse

Politicians trying to shine in the Olympics spotlight


he Summer Olympics are a grand stage like no other, where the world is captivated by the events taking place in the host city. No other event generates the kind of passion and national pride for how our native athletes perform in events that we otherwise pay little attention to. Weightlifting, judo or synchronized diving are not high audience draws in nonOlympic years. But right now, all eyes are on London, the host city for this year’s Olympic extravaganza. The event will

cost Great Britain billions in cost overruns, but for the next two weeks that will all be overlooked. In keeping with the credit card consumer world we Barry live in today, the Brits Gerding will worry about the bill later. It was only last year that the Summer Olympics fiscal hangover ended for Montreal, host of the 1976 Games—36 years later. But it’s not just the athletes gaining worldwide attention, as inevitably the politicians attempt to take advantage of the Olympic spotlight. Take for example Mitt Romney,


the Republican Party candidate for the U.S. presidential election this November. He used the Olympics as the starting point for his international tour to illustrate his ability to represent his country on the world stage—to be presidential. Instead, it has been a public relations disaster. He forgot the name of the opposition Labour Party during a press conference, questioned the security plans and the mood of the British population to rally behind the Olympics. Even though Romney is credited with helping saving the Salt Lake City Winter Olympics from being a financial disaster, he was unable to generate much positive vibe about that because he kept putting his foot

in his mouth. And the Brits, bless their hearts, were not impressed, using their delightful command of the English language to poke fun at Romney’s missteps. Political wingnuts are not the exlusive domain of the U.S., however, as in Quebec, the Parti Quebecois leader Pauline Marois saw an opportunity to grab a little of that Olympic spotlight to try to score political points. Marois was responding Tuesday to media questions about the first four bronze medals for Canada being won by Quebec athletes. But in congratulating her athletes, Marois couldn’t help herself from going further, saying the Olympic success was “another example of how Quebec could

shine among the highest…as an independent country. We could continue to win our medals, I’m sure of that.” Really? The federal government has spent more than $100 million in its Own The Podium program started in 2005 to help our athletes win more Olympic medals. It provides some $70 million annually to help our athletes. Last I heard, Quebec taxpayers were not the exclusive fundraising drivers of that fund. Like Romney, Marois saw an opportunity to further her own political goals, and she jumped at it. Just shows that the athletes aren’t the only ones during the Olympics trying to reach the podium.

Need for care is urgent but not the service Open letter to Okanagan MLAs and Interior Health Authority: I wish to bring your attention to the extreme wait times for a physician-ordered urgent ultrasound. After my mother received her requisition from her physician on July 31, she called the West Kelowna imaging to find that they are

booking urgent ultrasounds into the end of September/October. She then contacted her physician’s office and they suggested she contact Vernon, Penticton or Salmon Arm. After a few calls to all Interior imaging departments the answer was the same across the board, with the earliest appointment being

available in Salmon Arm towards the end of August/September. Do you think this is appropriate and timely health care services for physician-ordered urgent care? Shannon Gallivan, Kelowna

Best water straight from the tap practically free To the editor: I was dismayed to read in the Capital News last week about a partnership between the Kelowna Community Food Bank and the company, Vital Waters (Joint Water Quality Venture For Vital Waters, Food Bank, July 26). If Vital Waters were only donating money or water to the Food Bank this would be fine. But instead of simply doing this, they are giving out $20 gift certificates for their water to “each new food bank client,” encouraging Food Bank clients to sign up for their All You

Can Drink program. The newspaper article says that Vital Waters is helping “to make high quality drinking water affordable for everyone.” However, except for the occasional boil water advisory in certain areas, high-quality drinking water is already available for everyone—straight from the tap! Vital Waters makes claims on their website about the health benefits of their water, but there is no evidence that their expensive water can “promote good health and vitality” any more than regular water from the

tap. Through this venture with the Food Bank, Vital Waters is targeting vulnerable members of the community, encouraging them to pay money they can ill-afford for water that there is no reason to think is in any way healthier than water they can get from the tap, while making claims about the benefits of their product. I hope the Food Bank reconsiders the move to allow Vital Waters to promote its products to Food Bank clients. Zena Ryder, Kelowna


Elders deserve respectful, consistent care Open letter to Westbank First Nation Chief Robert Louie: My husband has been a resident of Pine Acres Nursing Home for the past 18 months. I visit him on a regular basis and always find the residence to be warm, friendly, caring and spotlessly clean. On every visit, I see such kindness and attentiveness by staff to all the residents, and they appear

to go “above and beyond” their job description. It is indeed a building that WFN should be proud of. I was therefore totally shocked at the recent lock out ordered by your people. Obviously, an agreement with workers needed to be reached, but why would you go so far as to deprive residents of their normal care and attention, while endeavouring to negotiate a

settlement? I strongly believe this was not the way to handle such a situation. The Pine Acres residents regards their caregivers as “family” and to deprive them of that comfort zone is inhumane. Granted, management took over, but I know for a fact that diet, laundry and stimulation events were sorely lacking during the enforced lock out.

I have always been under the impression that First Nations people very much respected and revered their elders. What kind of respect did you show when you took away their right to uninterrupted and compassionate care by a loving staff, in the place they call home? Pine Acres is a wonderful care centre, and I’m grateful my husband is a resident there. I hope

you realize what a treasure you have, and that you never fail to appreciate the fantastic staff, the lovely building and the home’s beautiful natural surroundings. Please never forget to respect your elders. Treat them as you wish to be treated when age catches up with you. Nan Watson, Westbank

Surprised vigilantism doesn’t occur more often To the editor: Re: Vigilantes Pursue Driver Suspected of Hit and Run, July 20 Capital News. After reading Kathy Michaels’ article, I did some serious thinking about this incident of the two vigilantes. I do not want this to become standard procedure, taking the law into your own hands. But the fact is that when we leave it to the po-

lice, and especially the Canadian ‘in’justice system, most criminals get off with a slap on the wrist, if slapped at all. Therefore, it has really surprised me that vigilante action does not occur more often and it probably will happen more often. Unfortunately, if the police find the two people who committed this “terrible retribution” they will be charged and collect a far

greater penalty than the young drunk who put a little girl through a traumatic experience and then hoped to get away scott free by leaving the scene of the “accident.” He should be charged with attempted vehicular homicide.

Metal fabrication bends program to fit the times Students interested in entering the lucrative field of metal fabrication can now get working in the trade faster than ever, thanks to changes made to the training program available at Okanagan College. Starting in September, the college has redesigned its metal fabrication program to allow students to obtain the equivalent of Level 1 training in 23 weeks, without the need for any prerequisites. “With this new program, plus the experience they’re going to have with

our state-of-the-art technology, students are going to get much of that first level apprenticeship work experience they need, right here in-house,” said Dean Nutter, chair of the college’s welding department. “This is going to make it far more attractive for employers to take on our students as apprentices,” he said. Demand for metal fabricators is rising throughout B.C. and in Alberta, as the economy continues its turn-around, Nutter said. The challenge

has been to try and match up students with apprenticeships in the industry. “We’re in a boom,” Nutter said. “I’m getting calls every day from people looking for metal fabricators—from the B.C. Interior, up north, even in Alberta.” One of those continually on the hunt for skilled workers is Graeme Jenkins, plant manager at Enterprise Steel Fabricators in Kelowna. The 30-year-old company works in the specialized field of high pressure vessels used in the oil field, with contracts with companies located in northern B.C. and even China. “It’s hard for us to get access to the younger experienced guys,” Jenkins said. “With graduates from this program, we can set them up in good stead, and help them move through their apprenticeship if they want

to look for work later up north.” Nutter said metal fabricators are at the heart of virtually any industry —from shipbuilding, to mining, to building substations for the oil industry, or building car parts for the automotive industry. “Metal fabrication is really where industry

starts,” Jenkins said. “People who are mechanically inclined, and are good at interpreting from drawings, do well in this field. “There’s a bit of an artistic bent, because they can see something and then use their mechanical ability to create what’s on the blueprint.” The program includes

The project is expected to cost approximately $48 million and save customers $19 million over the life of the project. Meter exchanges would begin in 2014 and be complete by the end of 2015. “FortisBC believes this project will provide enhanced customer service and better value for our customers,” said Tom Loski, vice-president of customer service at FortisBC. “When the project is complete, our electricity customers will have a chance for the first time to see in near real-time how much electricity they are using and will be able to make more informed decisions regarding conservation.” Project highlights include: • $19 million in savings over the life of the project helping to keep rates low-

er for electricity customers • Enhanced information to help customers manage their electricity consumption, including the ability to see how much power has been used since the last bill • Improved ability for FortisBC to detect and restore power outages. • Reduced electricity theft. FortisBC estimates that $3.7 million of electricity is stolen annually—revenues that would otherwise reduce customer rates FortisBC notes the timing of the project also corresponds with new meter accuracy standards from Measurement Canada. The enhanced accuracy requirements will require FortisBC to exchange about 80,000 electromechanical meters with digital meters whether the AMI project goes ahead or not.

Build an atmosphere of respect T

here is a myriad of employment related legal guidelines in place to help protect workers and guide managers in appropriate, fair, human resources practices. One of the most recent developments is the implementation of anti-bullying legislation in B.C. Anyone who has been subjected to and/or felt threatened by aggressive, disrespectful behaviour from a co-worker or boss may feel a sense of relief. At the very least, there may be a glimmer of hope that this kind of workplace harassment will no longer be tolerated, and that perpetrators will be penalized. Bullying has become a too common word in our vocabulary. And I say ‘too common’ because that reflects the scale and frequency of this kind of behaviour. It used to be most evident in the schoolyard or on the streets, but now unfortunately, it’s also in the workplace. Does this mean that schoolyard bullies just grow up to be workplace bullies? Obviously there is no way to track that, but it’s an interesting question to ponder. Whether bullying is something a person carries forward from their younger years, or learns later as an adult, it isn’t radmirable behaviour. Nor is it productive, for anyone. Treating one another with courtesy and consideration seems like a simple enough approach to tour personal exchanges. Why then would we need to legislate that? Perhaps some people rhave forgotten—or worse, don’t know—what respectful behaviour looks like in action. It might be


Laurie Mills time for a refresher. Basic human dignity is at the core of self respect and respect for others. If we can agree that everyone deserves at least that, then we can likely reach a common understanding of how to nurture mutually respectful relationships. One of the many wonderful books in my library is titled The Rules of Work, written by Richard Templar. I love that the physical look of the book—a plain black cover with a practical title—reflects the simplicity of its contents. Templar offers 10 basic rules for personal success. They cover a range of behaviour but the fourth rule is particularly relevant here. Rule #4 is: “If you can’t say anything nice— shut up.” Under this rule are 10 specific behaviours to cultivate—never gossip, don’t complain, stand up for others, complement them sincerely, be cheerful and positive, ask questions, use good manners like saying please and thank you, don’t swear, be a good listener and speak sense. This rule, along with the other nine in Templar’s book, promote a code of conduct for the workplace that is grounded in respect for self and others. This is not complicated stuff. Aside from the altruistic value of good work behaviour, he identifies

a selfish benefit as well —treating others with respect reflects well on us personally. In other words, acting with integrity, positive ethics, courtesy and consistency is a career enhancing strategy. In contrast, bullying behaviour seems so obviously counter intuitive. It not only hurts others unnecessarily, it hurts the individual who is behaving badly. No one wins in the long run.

It’s hard enough to put our efforts into doing our work well without the added stress of a toxic work relationship that is basically a result of bad manners.

YOU’RE GOING THE WRONG WAY As I walked to the front door of an extended care facility, I came upon a strange sight. A taxi cab built especially for the wheelchairbound was parked by the entrance. I heard the driver say: “I’m returning to base. She doesn’t have the fare. I’m not taking the risk.” I watched him drive away. I then saw the person who had ordered the cab. A woman in a motorized wheelchair. She was headed away from the facility. She sobbed bitterly as she drove on. She was followed by two nurses. They were pleading with her. “Come back…….. You need to come back.” Her response: “I am not coming back! He has my cheque. I hate him. I need the money, but he won’t give it to me. I am going right back to our apartment and getting what is mine. I hate it here. I want to go home.” This was the gist of what she said. Between these lines she used language that would make a sailor blush. As she neared the public street in front of the facility, both nurses took decisive action. They took several steps quick steps and placed themselves directly in the path of the wheelchair. The woman was now on a direct collision course with the nurses. She drove on with her head down. She continued to sob and swear. The nurses called her name loudly. She looked up and saw the nurses and how close she was to hitting them. The nurses stood their ground and she knew that if she continued on her course she would hit them. She sensed that the nurses meant business and that she couldn’t get through without a fight. She hit the brakes and came to a stop. She spun right around and went the opposite direction. She then veered to the right and took a walking path that would have got her onto an adjoining public street. The nurses ran after her renewing their pleas to her to turn around and come back. I could not leave the scene. A voice inside me said: “Go! Help! Now!” So, I gave chase. As I jogged up to the wheelchair I heard the nurses continue to plead with the woman: “Come back…. Please…. You could get hurt.” I positioned myself beside the wheelchair. I walked beside the woman. She continued to sob and swear, with her head down. She looked up only for an instant from time to time in order to keep on the path. “Where is your apartment.” I asked. “What?” she stammered. “Where is your apartment.” I asked again. “What is your address?” “It’s on the highway.” she sobbed (without looking up). “You’re going the wrong way.” I said. “You’re going the wrong way.” …… “You will never get to your apartment if you continue going this way. She stopped. She began another tirade about her boyfriend, about how he had her cheque and would not give her what was

rightfully her money. She used some very colorful language to describe her significant other. “Is he really worth it?” I asked her. “You can change where your cheques are sent.” I assured her. You can get the money. This is a good place for you. Please turn around and go back.” The nurses added their pleas to mine. To our surprise, she stopped. She looked up at me and saw my black shirt and clerical collar. “O my God!” she stammered. You’re a Priest!”…… “The language I used. I’m sorry.” She was at a fork in the road on her journey through life. She could continue on a mad dash to her old life in the apartment on the highway or change direction and follow the new path offered by the convalescent home. Which fork was she to go down? Which life would she choose? She turned her wheelchair around and started back to the front entrance of the care facility. The nurses walked along beside her. They promised that they would get her a nice snack. They also promised that a social worker would to talk to her about getting her financial situation in order. I accompanied the nurses and the woman back to the facility and right through the front entrance. One of the nurses thanked me for my help and assured me with these words: “We will take it from here Father.” I walked one way and they went off in the opposite direction. Thank God the woman chose the possibility offered by the convalescent home. Why did she take the fork she did? She had experienced a kind of repentance. In the New Testament, the Greek word which we have translated repent is “metanoia”— a compound word made up of the preposition “meta” (meaning after, with) and the verb “noiow” (meaning to perceive, to think). Metanoia means “a change of mind” or a “change in thinking.” The woman wanted to go back “home.” Each one of us wants a place to call home. Home is the place where the people we love and cherish live and we are loved and cherished for who we are. The woman I met that day was no different. Her most passionate and desperate desire was to get back to a place she called home. Her problem was that she had come to think of the convalescent home as an institution, a warehouse, where she was kept against her will because of some crisis in her life. It became a prison she had to escape. She thought of her apartment on the highway as a place she could escape to. However, she had to repent, that is, she had to change her mind. She had to come to see and experience that the apartment she called “home” was in reality the prison she had to escape. For this change of mind to occur, someone had to literally stop her in her tracks and put themselves between the woman and the path she was going down. She had to be told that the apartment on the highway was not the home she desired, a home where she was loved and

cherished. She had to be told that she needed to go down a different path and live a different way. She had to be told that the place she was running from was the best place for her. These words and actions shocked and jolted her mind in an instant. As a result she came to her senses, she changed her thinking, and she turned and went back to the place she could get help. The heart of Jesus’ message was “Repent and believe the good news!” (Mark 1:15). Jesus called people to stop, listen to him and in the process to change their mind about the path they were on and the path that Jesus was offering them. Luke 19:1-10 records the account of a man named Zacchaeus, a tax collector who worked for the occupying Roman government. Jesus invited himself to dinner at Zacchaeus’ home. As Zacchaeus heard Jesus speak, the Lord’s words cut his heart. Zacchaeus was inspired to make a public confession: “Look, Lord! Here and now I give half of my possessions to the poor, and if I have cheated anybody out of anything, I will pay back four times the amount.” Jesus’ response: “Today salvation has come to this house, because this man, too, is a son of Abraham. For the Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost.” Jesus’ words and actions had jolted Zacchaeus’ heart and mind. They caused Zacchaeus to change his mind about his life. He came to realize that he was headed the wrong path. Zacchaeus had sinned. He confessed that he was a greedy man who had cheated people. Zacchaeus confessed he was walking farther and farther away from God. Jesus’ words caused Zacchaeus to confess his faith in Jesus and a desire to amend his life. Jesus affirmed that Zacchaeus was on a new path, one that led to eternal life in heaven with Jesus. Are you like Zacchaeus or the woman in the wheelchair? Are you going down a path that is taking you further and further from God? Jesus calls you stop, turn around, and come to his home, the church. Maybe you have come to see the church as an institution, a warehouse, a prison and wouldn’t dare step in. Maybe Jesus can change your mind. Maybe the church can become a place where we are welcomed and loved by God, and God’s family, for who you are. A place where you hear God’s Word, are cut to the heart and you are transformed into the person that God wants you to be. Jesus invites you to hear his words at Grace Lutheran on Sunday mornings at 9:00 and 10:30. Take the risk. Come! In Christ, Pastor Ed

WildPlay adventure park now open


THERAPY DOGS…Mike Dickson, store manager for the Total Pet store in Kelowna, donated red leads for the dog therapy division of the St. John Ambulance, accepted by representative Christine Wilson along with Abby, a therapy dog. In 2010, there were 425 therapy dogs and 448 handlers active in B.C. and Yukon region. All sizes and kinds of dogs can become therapy dogs. They are screened to ensure they have the proper temperament, and both dogs and handlers receive training to prepare them for visits. For more information about St. John Ambulance’s therapy dog program, email or call 1-866-321-2651.

Expansion of B.C.based WildPlay Element Parks continued last week with the opening of the company’s newest adventure park. The new park features three adventure recreation elements that offer panoramic views of the Okanagan from its location on Highway 33 east of Kelowna—The Monkido Aerial Adventure courses (Classic, Buddy and Kids); Primal Swing; and DragonFLY Zip Lines (which will open in August). “WildPlay Element Parks is an excellent attraction for the City of Kelowna. The people who live and visit the Central Okanagan are outdoor adventure enthusiasts, often looking for a new challenge and thrill,” said Alexander Michl, president and franchise owner of WildPlay Kelowna. Like WildPlay’s five other parks—located in Maple Ridge, Nanaimo, Victoria and Whistler along with one in Whitehorse—the Kelowna location was constructed to

minimize its impact on the natural environment. The tree- and sparmounted games of the Monkido Aerial Adventure courses are built using a special compression system that allows sap and tree nutrients to flow, and vegetation growth to continue. The placements of the park elements are also designed to both work with the natural terrain and provide the best opportunity for guests to feel enveloped by nature. “I’ve always been drawn to outdoor adventures and how getting into the natural environment makes all kinds of barriers in the mind and body disappear,” said Tom Benson, WildPlay Element Parks co-founder and chief experience officer. “I’ve seen people let go and realize some pretty amazing and positive changes in that kind of situation. “At one point I noticed that people began spending more leisure time indoors, missing out on that innate opportunity to evolve. “That’s where the idea for WildPlay Element Parks came about —as a way to bring people of a wide range of

ages and abilities back to a place that was naturally designed to give them the freedom to meet their physical and mental needs, without sacrificing their down time.” The ‘a-ha’ moment for Benson came after discovering the tree-to-tree parks in Europe and South America. The idea became a catalyst to design the company’s range of gentle to extreme aerial elements that turn the concept of play into a mechanism for people to take on a challenge and overcome self-perceived limits, whatever they may be. Since opening the company’s first WildPlay Element Parks location in Nanaimo in 2006, Benson has seen growing visitor and investor interest as a sign that people are equally drawn to the opportunity of exploring the outdoors in a way that is different, exciting and freeing. Today, WildPlay Element Parks employs more than 100 people during peak season.

Energetic Shakespeare amidst the Vibrant Vines Jennifer Smith

see them running up and down, throwing themselves all over the stage, is very effective.” Facey is the longtime Kelowna Secondary School teacher who retired from his position with the school this year and went straight into rehearsal for the new Kelowna Summer Theatre Society’s repertoire production downtown. His plays are showing over the same period outside the Rotary Centre for the Arts, though there isn’t a “wherefore art thou” in the lot. For Shakespeare, one will have to go to the wineries to see a play that doesn’t generally make a Shakespeare company’s hit list. The Two Gentlemen of Verona is Shakespeare’s first comedy and focuses on the type of physical comedy young,


It’s a stunning setting, conjured by a veteran organization and the stars didn’t even know they were auditioning for it when spotted for their roles. If you’re a Shakespeare fan, you just might recognize the actors in Shakespeare Kelowna’s The Two Gentlemen of Verona, playing at The Vibrant Vine this weekend. The leads were plucked from Kelowna Secondary School’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream after director Stephen Jefferys saw them in the play last school year. “I must say they are all very good,” said Jefferys. “The experience of working with Neal Facey shows and…being young people, they’re all very physically active. So to

actor to the newspaper reporter-cum-actor Don Plant, lawyer Paul Henry, who is becoming known

for playing Dukes, and Englishman Rod Shuttlewood, this cast has depth, experience and plenty of

excitement. “A lot of people say it’s not one of Shakespeare’s better plays, but I saw it in Vancouver five years ago and I thought it was very funny,” said Jefferys, noting Shakespeare Kelowna has done just about every other of the Bard’s plays and Jefferys likes the storyline. “It’s a little ménage a trois,” he explained. “Too many in love with the same woman.” As it happens, it’s also the only Shakespeare play with a dog and the Jack Russell terrier playing the role has grown quite accustomed to performing. “He was a bit scared at first, but now he’s very self-confident,” said Jefferys. Once a dog is on stage, people are just going to watch the dog, so incorporating fido was a bit of a risk.

Founded in 1993, Shakespeare Kelowna thankfully has the experience to make risks work and little is left to chance. This is their second year playing at The Vibrant Vine. They knew the vines would go over well as they had staged shows at Summerhill Pyramid Winery in years gone by. And for Avery Kirk, Brett Thomas, Eleanor Crook and Cassandre Bouthillier, the KSS student actors, taking on a lead of this nature would have been no risk at all. The young stars will sparkle among the winery’s psychedelic art in a play that bubbles like champagne. Tickets are $25 at the door or online at www. The play runs every night through Saturday at Vibrant Vines, 3240 Pooley Rd. in East Kelowna. TM

Wiseman’s take on Total Recall I t’s been 22 years since the classic Total Recall was released, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger.


Rick Davis Arguably one of his better movies, it still holds up today as a solid piece of science fiction, even though it predates digital special effects. Loosely based upon the short story We Can Remember It for You Wholesale, it was one of the best adaptations of anything Philip K. Dick has written, next to Minority Report. Director Paul Verhoeven thankfully toned down his over-the-top campiness and violence which he had already demonstrated with Robocop and later with Starship Troopers, but it still had its share of violence, camp and obligatory Schwarzenegger oneliners. Now it is up to Len Wiseman (Underworld, Live Free or Die Hard) to try to repeat the success of the original, with many of the same characters but a plot, while similar, that is different enough to hopefully keep it fresh. Colin Farrell takes on the role of Douglas Quaid, a factory worker who begins to suspect that he is a spy after visiting Rekall, a company that


COLIN FARRELL stars in the remake of the classic science fiction action thriller Total Recall. provides its clients with implanted fake memories of a life they would like to have led. The implant goes wrong when it is discovered that his mind has already been wiped and discovers his wife is not who she appears to be and must stay alive while he unravels the secrets of his own mind. Director Wiseman’s wife, Kate Beckinsale, plays Quaid’s fictional wife Lori, the role that Sharon Stone made famous, and the new cast is rounded out by Jessica Biel, Bryan Cranston, John Cho and Bill Nighy. For you trivia buffs, the original was successful enough that a sequel was in development based upon another of Dick’s short stories, The Minority Report, in which Schwarzenegger’s character was going to be a peace officer investigating pre-crimes. Of course, that eventu-

ally became its own classic from Steven Spielberg and Tom Cruise, but coincidentally also starred Colin Farrell. For the kids, there’s Diary of a Wimpy Kid 3: Dog Days. During his summer vacation, “Wimpy Kid” Greg Heffley, the hero of the phenomenally successful book series, hatches a plan to pretend he has a job at a ritzy country club—which fails to keep him away from the season’s dog days, including embarrassing mishaps at a public pool and a camping trip that goes horribly wrong. And for the adults there is a light-hearted historical story about an important invention that is rarely discussed in the

classroom. Based on true events, Hysteria is a romantic comedy set at the end of the 19th century whose title refers to the once-common medical diagnosis of female hysteria. The accomplished cast, led by Maggie Gyllenhaal, Hugh Dancy, Jonathan Pryce, Felicity Jones and Rupert Everett, tells the surprising story of the invention of the electro-mechanical vibrator at the very peak of Victorian prudishness. It starts tomorrow at the Paramount Theatre. Rick Davis is the general manager of Landmark Cinemas 8 in West Kelowna. landmarkwk_gm

might have been created. Vaughan (Bob), Jonah Hill (Franklin) from 21 Jump Street (another winner), British-born Richard Ayoade, known for a number of stand up comedy shows, are the main characters along with Stiller. Will Forte plays the terminally stupid Sgt. Bessman, who actually holds the 36th highest score in the world for the video game Donkey Kong. Some of us really wish he’d stayed with video games, but that might be less than kind. One line that I can share without censorship, from Evan: “You’re planning an alien invasion in my Costco?” Alien: “You really do have everything we need under one roof.” Evan: “Costco is for

members only.” (Well, I tried!) Costco got a whole lot of advertising in this show and they might be thrilled if the quality of the film was even slightly elevated from the primordial swamp of bad taste and coarse language that it sunk to, but that isn’t the case here—I did say awful, didn’t I? So this has got to be the biggest waste of time ever and I think the writers and producers should be educated as to the degree of crap the movie goer should be subjected to and is willing to accept. This one just isn’t acceptable. One reel (just for the stupidity of it all.) Susan Steen is a local movie buff.


Raising awareness for brain injury


rain injury has been labeled an epidemic and is the leading cause of death and disability for people under the age of 44. Awareness and education are key to reducing the incidence of this serious issue. BrainTrust Canada, a local non-profit organization, is seeking volunteers for its largest fundraising event of the year. The Pihl Law Corporation Golf Marathon will be held on Friday Sept. 7 at the Bear golf course at the Okanagan Golf Club in support of brain injury education and prevention. Volunteers are needed to assist during the day— anyone who loves to sit on a golf course in the sun and socialize for a few hours may apply. Duties will include monitoring hole-in-ones, serving snacks and lunch to hungry golfers, tracking the number of holes that golfers play and other functions such as putting up signage. There are two volunteer shifts—6 a.m. to 1 p.m., or noon to 7 p.m. Volunteers on the morning shift are supplied with breakfast and lunch, and volunteers on the afternoon shift are supplied with lunch and dinner. Those interested should contact Darlene

Young at BrainTrust Canada, 250-762-3233 or There are also a few spots available for golfers. It is the “ultimate day” of golf for golf lovers, a full day of golf with the goal of golfing 100 holes in one day. There are also opportunities to support the cause as a Hole Sponsor for $300—great value for 12 hours of exposure. For more information call 250-762-3233. BrainTrust Canada is a progressive Kelownabased not-for-profit association dedicated to being a leader in injury prevention, and maximizing independence for persons with brain injury.

ARE YOU READY TO BUY A HOME? FIRST - Do you have the financial resources? You should have five percent of the purchase price of a home for the down payment, but ideally even more. Are there other priorities in your life e.g. starting a new business, which require your savings? If not, buying a home should be on your radar. SECOND - Do you expect to stay in your new home for some time? Moving can be expensive and you will want to build some equity before having to relocate. Your job and home life should be stable.

Keca, Fieseler vie for Cuthbert resigns from Rockets national hockey team Warren Henderson

Warren Henderson



Hockey Canada is intrigued by the talents of Jesse Keca. Over the next 10 days, the Kelowna teenager hopes to prove she is indeed ready for the next big step with the national program. Keca is among 40 prospects who have been invited to Canada’s under 18 women’s selection camp beginning Friday in Calgary. “I’m definitely looking forward to the experience of playing at a high level like that with a lot of the best players from around the country,” said Keca, 17. “Whether I make it or not, playing with girls who are so dedicated and committed to the sport, I think will be great for me.” Keca is one of two local players who will be attending the national selection camp, Aug. 3 to 11. West Kelowna’s Samantha Fieseler, who attends Warner School in Alberta, will be looking to crack the roster on defense. In addition to regular practises, the Canadian hopefuls will play several exhibition games against Kazakhstan and Norway. The final roster will feature 22 players, who will head to Minnesota following the camp for a series of exhibition games against Team USA, Aug. 15 to 19. The pinnacle will come in January when Canada travels to Finland for the IIHF U18 Women’s World Championship. Keca heads to the national camp with solid credentials after leading the B.C. Female Midget AAA Hockey League in

Ryan Cuthbert is taking a step back from the game he’s been immersed in for much of his life. The Kelowna Rockets this week announced the 30-year-old Swift Current, Sask. native has resigned from the WHL club’s coaching staff for personal reasons.


KELOWNA’S JESSE KECA is heading to Calgary this week for Hockey Canada’s national women’s under 18 selection camp. scoring last season. The 5-foot-7, 134-pound centre scored 22 goals and added 16 assists in 25 games with the Thompson Okanagan Rockets. Then last week, Keca was named to B.C. Hockey’s U18 team following the final selection camp in Salmon Arm. Team B.C. head coach Sylvain Leone says it’s little surprise Keca has caught the attention of Hockey Canada’s evaluators. “I think Jesse’s greatest asset is that she can skate the game, she’s able to really push the pace of play,” said Leone. “At the national level, conditioning and skating are important and Jesse has both those going for her. For her to simply get invited is an accomplishment, it doesn’t happen by accident. They’ve definitely seen something they like.” That Keca’s is skating ability stands out comes as no surprise to those who

know her best. In addition to excelling at hockey, she has grown up as a competitive speed skater and is currently ranked 23rd overall in the country at the senior level. Balancing two sports at the elite level takes careful planning and commitment, but Keca plans to continue doing both as long as it’s humanly possible. “I love both sports,” Keca said. “I think what I really love is the competition, and hockey and speedskating both have that. If there’s been a conflict between the two, I’ve usually been able work around it. I’m going to try doing both as long as I can.” Keca is, as of yet, undecided on her hockey and speed skating plans for the fall. Among her options is attending a school in Quebec where she could potentially pursue both sports at the collegiate level.


Cuthbert, who spent the last five seasons as an assistant to Rockets’ head man Ryan Huska, is ready for a change. “This is a personal choice for me,” said Cuthbert. “I’m going to explore different opportunities. It was one of the hardest decisions I’ve had to make, it’s like leaving family, but I weighed my options and decided it’s time to try new things. “I think of the Hamilton family and the Rockets as my family,” Cuthbert continued. “I want to thank them for the opportunity to work for what I believe is the best junior organization in Canada and for their continued support through this transition.” Rockets president and GM Bruce Hamilton regrets his team will be losing a passionate and valuable asset, but fully sup-


RYAN CUTHBERT has stepped aside as assistant coach with the WHL’s Kelowna Rockets. ports Cuthbert’s decision. “I think it was really a tough decision for him, but he just needed to step back and figure things out,” Hamilton said. “It certainly surprised all of us. I’m not so sure he’s done with the game altogether, but he needs to feel good about what he’s doing with his life. “We plan to assist Ryan as he makes this transition from the game as he is a member of the Rockets family and always will be” Cuthbert played five seasons in a Rockets uniform and remains one of the most popular players in club history. His hard-

nosed, workmanlike style endeared him to fans and teammates alike. Cuthbert served as Kelowna’s captain the last two seasons of his WHL career, leading the Rockets to a Memorial Cup berth in 2003. Hamilton said Cuthbert’s contributions won’t be forgotten. “When we started to have success as an organization, Ryan was instrumental in helping turn this thing around,” Hamilton said. “He brought leadership to this team, he learned that from the guys who came before him, then he passed it on to players like (Josh) Gorges and (Shea) Weber. A

lot of our players will tell you how important Ryan was.” Cuthbert played for the Rockets from the 1998-99 to the 2002-03 seasons, scoring 59 goals and 164 points in 319 games. A series of injuries cut short Cuthbert’s minorpro career as he retired from the game at just 23. He joined the Kelowna coaching staff on a fulltime basis for the start of the 2007-08 season. Hamilton said the Rockets won’t fill the vacancy. In 2012-13, head coach Ryan Huska will once again be assisted by Dan Lambert, Kim Dillabaugh and Kim Gellert.

Rutland player top hitter as B.C. wins Continental Amateur title

Ohio tournament lots of fun with good teams: “…better than teams I’m used to playing against.”

said Morrow-Lisa, who was selected to the provincial team following tryouts earlier this summer. “The teams are all really good, better than teams I’m used to playing against.” Morrow-Lisa, who plays locally with the Rutland Rockies peewee AA team, played in all eight games for Team B.C.— starting in six—while playing both left field and serving as the designated hitter. And Morrow-Lisa was particularly effective with the bat, hitting the longest home run of the tournament at close to 300 feet. He also had three triples during the week along with two doubles and, for his efforts, was named winner of the Best Bat award. It’s presented annually to a player who makes an especially big impact at the plate for his club. “I never thought about winning something like

It was a week on the baseball diamond Elliott Morrow-Lisa is unlikely to ever forget. The 13-year-old from Rutland returned home Monday from Sylvania, Ohio where he helped Team B.C. Selects win the Continental Amateur Baseball Association (CABA) World Series in the U12 division. The provincial squad, comprised of players from across B.C., went a perfect 8-0 against competition from all across North America. B.C. secured the title with an 11-3 win over the Wisconsin River Cats in the final. “It was a lot of fun,”

Morrow-Lisa drew praise for his play both from the Team B.C. coaching staff and B.C. Baseball minor rep Mike Kelly. “Elliott was a great


addition to the CABA team, he was a great hitter a pure hitter and he deserved the top hitter award,” said Kelly. “A very coachable kid, and the Okanagan should be proud to have him on the team.” As for Team B.C.’s overall success at CABA, Morrow-Lisa pointed to a multitude of talent on the roster. “There were just a lot of really good players on the team,” he said. “We had good pitching and good hitting.” Morrow-Lisa will be back with his Rutland Rockies teammates this weekend at the B.C. peewee AA championship in Chilliwack.

Cubs and Rockies at B.C.’s in Chillwack The Kelowna Cubs and Rutland Rockies will represent the Okanagan this weekend at the B.C. peewee AA baseball championship in Chilliwack. The Cubs secured the No. 1 berth from the valley thanks to posting a 3-0 record last weekend at the zone championship in West Kelowna. The Rockies were second best with a 2-1 record, which included a dramatic extra innings victory over Vernon in the round robin. The Cubs will open play at the 10-team provincial championship this Thursday at 9 a.m. against

Abbotsford, while the Rockies play their opener at noon against Prince George. Each team will play four round robins. The championship game is set for Sunday afternoon in Chilliwack. The Cubs, coached by Mike Chamberlain, won the Valley of Champions last month in Kelowna. Rutland is coached by Jeff Strother.

RUTLAND HOSTS PEEWEE A PROVINCIALS… The Rutland Rockies will host the B.C. Baseball peewee A provincial

championship this weekend at Edith Gay Park. The 10-team tourney will open Thursday morning with the first games at 9 a.m. The host Rockies first game is noon Thursday against Aldergrove. Other competing teams are from Burnaby, Comox, Ladner, Vernon, Victoria, Prince George and Cloverdale. The playoffs are set for Sunday, with the championship final slated for 2 p.m. at Edith Gay. The Rockies, who had an automatic berth as the host team, won the zone playoffs last weekend in Vernon.

Reds win valleys, qualify for B.C.s The Kelowna Reds will carry the Okanagan’s colours this weekend at the B.C. bantam AA baseball championship in Aldergrove. The Reds booked a spot at provincials thanks to capturing the zone 2 title last weekend with a hard-fought final series win over the Penticton Tigers. After having the initial game suspended due to rain and lightning on July 27 in Penticton, the series moved to Kelowna for the resumption of Game 1 and the completion of Game 2. The opener saw a pitchers battle ensue where Easton Forrest, of the Kelowna Reds, scattered three hits over seven innings and came up on the losing end of a 3-2 contest. Taylor Kanke and Matt Brodt silenced the Kelowna bats and stymied Kelowna hitters with 13 strikeouts while only allowing 2 hits. Both hits came off the bat of Ethan Jarvis. The second game was a different story as the Reds came out swinging and put up five runs on nine hits which resulted in a 5-2 win. David Tongue was dominant on the mound for the Reds as he allowed only two hits with 6 ks over seven inning, and also contributed two hits with a magnificent drag

bunt down the third base line to plate the go ahead and eventual winning run. Dylan Emmons also had two hits, while Jeran Knorr, played a masterful second base, and assisted on nine outs. Game 3 Sunday was a battle of attrition as Penticton jumped out to a 5-1 early lead, only to have Kelowna chip away and tie the score 5-5 on a two-run, bottom of the seventh single by Rhys Colpron. Nathan Hettinga and Sam DeMelo combined to go 11 complete innings in a 6-5 come-from- behind win with Markus Glowacki hitting a walkoff double in the bottom of the 11th to score Jeran Knorr to seal the win. Game 4 saw Dylan Emmons take the mound for the Reds and shut down the Tigers offence with and two hits over five innings. The Reds offence did the rest with Markus Glowacki, Michael Gini and Sam Demelo providing two hits a piece as Kelowna held on for a hard fought 8-5 victory to win the best-of-5 series 3-1 and earn a berth into the B.C. bantam AA championships. Remaining members of the team are Nic Ostrom, Conner Runnalls, Erik Mitchell, Josh Liegmann, Morgan Sommer, the coaches are Marty Colpron, Kody Umperville, Brent Ueda and head coach is Chris Jarvis.

THE KELOWNA REDS are the zone 2 bantam AA baseball champs. CONTRIBUTED

WEST Hardy Falls park trail updated While the main trail and bridges at one regional park will be open for visitors ahead of schedule, a bridge in another regional park will be closing for repair work. The Hardy Falls Regional Park is again open to the public. Over the past six weeks, the main trail to the falls has been closed as seven of the eight bridges crossing Peachland/Deep Creek were completely rebuilt at a cost of just over $137,000. The old creek crossings were originally installed in 1996. It was anticipated the bridge replacement project in the six hectare regional park located on Hardy Road just off Highway 97 near the south end of Peachland, would take until July 31 to complete. Meanwhile, from now through Sept. 15, the Cottonwoods Bridge, located just off the Springfield Road parking area near the Mindy Tran Memorial in Mission Creek Regional Park, will be completely closed. The entire structure is being refurbished, painted and the deck surface is being replaced as part of the ongoing maintenance program and to ensure public safety. Trails on both sides of Mission Creek will remain open during the bridge upgrade. The closest creek crossing available for now is the Kokanee Bridge, located near the Mission Creek Greenway donor and information pavilion.


CONSTRUCTION CREWS work at the site of Nancee Way underpass. The project completion date, which was initially planned to be completed last month, has now been bumped back to later this fall.

Westbank First Nation is responsible for managing the Westside Road Interchange Project and delivering it to completion. The $41-million project was first announced in 2009 and construction on the first phase began in the fall of 2010. The project has been funded by the province with contributions from the federal government. The highway will be realigned once the underpass is completed later this year—until then, a 60 km/h speed zone will remain in effect around the project site.

“We’ve spent a lot of time and energy to make sure that this isn’t going to be an issue on the remainder of the project.” Lube said that weather could potentially play a factor in the completion date. “Probably the most critical part about the schedule will be the paving, which has to be done when the weather is mild enough. “In the worst-case scenario, it may mean that paving of Nancee Way couldn’t be done (until) the spring. But we’re hopeful that’s not going to happen.”

termined that embrittlement at the bends in certain steel reinforcement bars connecting the concrete facing panels was a contributing factor in the collapse. Now that the cause is known, Lube said crews are confident the Nancee Way underpass won’t have the same problem as Westside Road overpass. “We’re confident that the problem with the walls has been addressed. The supplier has now made revisions to the materials and detailing for the connections.

Nancee Way underpass would have been fully operational since the end of June, if the original completion date projection was correct. But last year’s retaining wall failure on Westside Road overpass and other delays have postponed the opening date until late November or early December. “We’re on schedule to have the entire project completed by the end of this fall,” said Evelyn Lube, in charge of project com-

munications for the Westside Road Interchange Project. Last November, the first phase of the project was completed with the opening of Westside Road overpass; however, the facing panels of the west abutment retaining wall collapsed Nov. 20, causing a major delay to the second phase of the project. “We had to go and investigate the failure of the original wall and make sure that we knew what had caused it, then make sure that it’s not going to happen again.” Testing of the materials de-

Age is no excuse to send your body decay signals

“Beautiful young people are accidents of nature, but beautiful old people are works of art.” —Eleanor Roosevelt


If enough growth signals are sent to the rest of your body, they overwhelm the signals to atrophy. Your body then turns on the machinery to build up the muscles, heart, caBobbi pillaries, tendons, joints Kittle and so on. When we exercise hard, we stress the muscles and injure them slightly. This is good, as it tears you down to build you back up stronger, triggering repair, renewal and growth. Exercise is the master signaler to set off cycles of strengthening and repair within the muscles and joints. It’s the foundation of positive brain chemistry; insulin regulation; fat burning; heightened immune system; improved sexuality; better sleep; and less depression. Exercise provides resistance to heart attack, stroke, hypertension, high cholesterol, Alzheimer’s and arthritis. But to let your muscles sit idle means decay will take over. The guidelines for cardiovascular exercise (walking, running, swimming, skiing, etc.) are three to five times a week for a minimum of 30 minutes at a low-moderate level. Find an activity you enjoy and you will be more likely to make it a habit for a healthy lifestyle. Resistance training should be done two to four times weekly, resting one day between workouts. Always check with your doctor before starting any exercise program. Start low and slow, and always listen to your body.


n his book Younger Next Year, Dr. Henry Lodge tells how to live strong, fit and sexy until you are 80 and beyond. Lodge firmly believes that we have the choice to age in good health! He makes a critical distinction between aging and decaying. While aging is inevitable and designed to be a slow process, decay is optional. You can actually make up your mind and tell your body you are going to live as though you are 50, and in doing so send your body different signals that can help you to be functionally younger than your age. Biologically, there is no such thing as retirement or even aging. There is only growth or decay, as your body looks to you to choose between them. Our bodies are made of parts that break down over time and need to be constantly renewed. Our muscle cells are replaced one at a time day and night every four months, with brand new muscles created three times per year. Blood cells are replaced every three months, and bones every two years. Our body is always in an active process of “throwing out” and “growing” new cells, muscle, tissue and bone. The trick is to “grow” more than you “throw out,” and exercise plays a huge factor in this process. Muscles control the growth throughout our entire body. Nerve impulses to contract a muscle send a signal to build it up and create a chemical balance between growth and decay within the muscle.

Insurance policy takes advantage of court time shortfall “If you want trial dollars, you’re going to have to go to trial.”


wish to be very clear; the above quote is not from an ICBC adjuster who has been assigned to the majority of my cases, nor any other adjuster I am dealing with. I have been given that quote from other personal injury lawyers, those words spoken to them by other ICBC adjusters. I have committed not to quote from adjusters I deal with. My reason for giving that commitment is to avoid interfering with the important relationship that develops between insurance adjuster and plaintiff lawyer. My ability to effectively negotiate on behalf of my clients would be impaired to the extent that adjusters I deal with are concerned that whatever they say could be broadcast in my next column. But what does that quote mean? “Trial dollars” are amounts of financial compensation assessed at a trial. Trial dollars are, by definition, “fair dollars”


Paul Hergott because whether or not a settlement offer is fair is determined by whether or not the amount is what a court would likely assess at a trial. What ICBC adjusters are saying is that if you want fair compensation, you will have to go to trial. They will not negotiate in good faith, when that means negotiating to achieve a fair result. It’s another of many smart ICBC policies. Remember the low velocity impact policy I’ve written about more than once before, where ICBC refuses to make any offer at all to settle a claim, however reasonable the claim might be, if the damage to the bumpers is not above a certain threshold. As ridiculously unfair as that policy may be, it’s a brilliant insurance

company policy because most people will walk away without putting up the fight for fair compensation. Then there’s the policy of making low-ball settlement offers to unrepresented victims—i.e. victims who have not hired a lawyer. Adjusters lead injured victims to believe that their low-ball offers are fair, and discourage them from seeking the legal advice that would teach them the true value of their claims. It’s another brilliant policy because most people believe what ICBC, a Crown corporation seemingly looking after their interests, is telling them. The problem with this latest policy is that along with being unfair, it is actually interfering with the administration of justice in British Columbia. Our court system is underfunded as it is. I think it’s fair to say that anyone “in the know” will tell you that the province is shirking its responsibility to finance our court system. The insufficient fund-

ing, in itself, puts a strain on the system’s ability to handle cases that reasonably need to go to trial because two opposing parties, after bargaining in good faith, have been unable to settle their dispute. A policy by the monopoly liability insurance company to refuse to bargain in good faith, essentially forcing British Columbians to take their claims to trial to achieve fair compensation, is putting the already strained court system in crisis. Instead, it will result in countless settlements at less than fair dollars. Just like unrepresented victims accepting low-ball offers without seeking legal advice, most represented victims will accept less than fair dollars to avoid the stress and expense of a trial and extensive delays arising when trials have to be adjourned because of insufficient court resources. The thing is, there are enough lawyers with the chutzpah to insist on fair results that the refusal to bargain in good faith is causing the already strained court system to

crumble. It used to be unusual for trials to be adjourned because of a lack of court resources. But now, adjournments are becoming par for the course. Turning to the legal maxim “justice delayed is justice denied,” ICBC’s policy is negatively impacting on the administration of justice. It’s ironic. One arm of government is refusing to properly fund our court system while another arm of government, ICBC, is wasting scarce court system resources with its new negotiation policy. Perhaps if the provincial government would start putting the profits it skims off of ICBC into the court system instead of into general revenue, we could end up with at least something of a balance. The alternative is going back to bargaining in good faith. Any chance of that, ICBC?

This column is intended to provide general information about injury claims. It is not a substitute for retaining a lawyer to provide legal advice

specifically pertaining to your case. Paul Hergott is a lawyer at Hergott Law in West Kelowna.

Walk For Memories needs volunteers For nearly 10 years, Central Okanagan residents have joined together on the last Sunday in January to raise money and awareness for families impacted by dementia at the Investors Group Walk For Memories. Now, the Alzheimer Society of B.C. is calling for volunteer leaders to help plan and coordinate this cherished community event in 2013. “The Investors Group Walk For Memories has long been a grassroots, community-driven event,” said Jean Blake, chief executive officer of the Alzheimer Society of B.C. “Volunteer committees in communities around the province bring life and heart to the event, which goes a long way to aid the fight against Alzheimer’s disease while

honouring local families on the dementia journey.” Participants join the walk to celebrate the life of someone who has been impacted by Alzheimer’s disease or another dementia, and to raise money for Alzheimer Society of B.C. programs and services in their community that

can help. Money raised is also invested into research for a cure. In 2012, the Walk for Memories held in Kelowna raised $28,000. The Alzheimer Society of B.C. organization provides training and ongoing support for Walk for Memories volunteers.
