THE OKANAGAN Athletics defeated the North Shore Twins 9-7 Sunday to win the B.C. Premier Baseball League championship.

HOPES for Okanagan cherry producers to gain access for selling their fruit to markets in China have been dashed for at least another year due to that country’s import restrictions.

THE NASTY dispute between the Westbank First Nation and BCGEU concerning union staff at the band-owned Pine Acres Home for seniors has ended with a contract settlement.

Kelowna’s downtown core will be turned into a Block Party next Saturday, Aug. 11, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Block Party will close down Bernard Avenue from Richter Street to The Sails, as the street will be taken up by vendors and live entertainment performing at three different stage venues. The concept for the event calls for each block between Abbott and Richter to offer its own unique activities and entertainment. At Kerry Park, take in a dog agility demonstration or yoga class while the kids hang out at the Park ‘N Play Zone. The Main Block Party Stage will be highlighted by five acts throughout the day, including Nuuka, Fields of Green, Ali Milner and DJ Sean Shepherd. From Water Street to Pandosy, watch for a second entertainment stage featuring performers such as Josh Smith, Windmills, Devon Coyote and Ari Neufeld. As well, the Kelowna Art Gallery will set up a large crafts area and host other activities throughout the afternoon. The block from Pandosy to Ellis will be highlighted by a performance from the visiting Cirque du Soleil. As well, Bones and Stones Home Décor will bring along their pet—a 20-foot long animatronic dinosaur T-Rex. The 500 block of Bernard from Ellis to Bertram will feature a number of different activities for kids including a bouncy castle and climbing wall. This block will also host the third live stage entertainment venue featuring four musical acts along with a kids’ petting zoo and the Mac’s 40 foot long Froster truck that will be handing out free tasty treats. The final block, from Bertram to Richter, will include the Safeway Muscular Dystrophy Charity BBQ. “I think we truly have something for everyone,” said Peggy Athans, executive director of the Downtown Kelowna Association. “I’m excited to see Bernard Avenue come alive as the businesses will come out of their stores to take over the street and show off what Downtown Kelowna has to offer.” The Block Party will also be the last major summer event downtown prior to the start of construction on the Bernard Avenue Revitalization Project, which begins Aug. 20.

A man who allegedly lured a child into a YMCA change room and forced her to watch as he fondled himself returned to the scene of the crime. Around 4 p.m. Thursday, Mounties were called to the Rutland facility when a man matching the suspect’s description was spotted around the pool by one of the staff members. “Before police could arrive, the man quickly fled the scene on foot and a subsequent search, which included the use of

police service dogs, was unsuccessful,” said Const. Kris Clark. It took just over a week for the suspect to return to the site where he lured an eight-year-old girl into the family change room and exposed himself to her. “(She) escaped without physical harm and the man fled the scene while attempting to conceal his identity,” said Clark. His insight on how to hide himself from cameras placed around the facility, and apparent knowledge of entrances that

would allow him to pass unnoticed, prompted Y staff to tighten security in the days since. They’ve also studied images and video of the man, so they could spot him if he returned. That may have been the reason why they were able to spot him in the most recent incident on Thursday. RCMP describe the suspect as a Caucasian man with tanned skin; 40 to 50 years of age; thin muscular build; 5-foot-5 to 5-foot-8 in height.

Car chase leads to initial charges with more possibly to be filed A number of charges relating to Tuesday’s high-drama police chase have now been approved, says a Crown counsel spokesperson. The three accused—Ashley Collins, 19, Shawn Adam Wysynski, 32, and Michael Edward Ellis, 39—will be charged jointly with three counts of attempted murder and one count of robbery using a fire arm, said Neil MacKenzie, with the Crown’s office. Ellis and Wysynski are each facing charges of failing to stop a vehicle when being pursued by a police officer and a charge of dangerous driving. Charges should have been sworn by

Friday morning, he said, noting the men involved will likely appear to have the charges read to them in the next week from Kamloops Regional Correctional Centre. Collins’s time for an appearance is undetermined as she was still being treated in hospital for a gunshot wound suffered during the course of the chase. MacKenzie also noted that further charges could be laid in the days ahead, as Okanagan RCMP are still investigating the chase that started just after 1:30 p.m. last Tuesday on Boucherie Road, and carried on for nearly 70 kilometres to an area near Swan Lake in Vernon.

Currently the Kelowna chapter of Bicycles for Humanity is focused on sending the next container to Ghana. “I think the connection was that we had students that came from Ghana to study nursing at the university. “One lady asked for the bikes—the nurses (in Ghana) can use the bikes to bring patients in and out.” Couper said a lot of people showed up Saturday and the organization was able to get donations for many of the tricycles, scooters and kids’ bikes that were for sale. Those interested in donating a bike to Bicycles for Humanity can drop it off at the Quonset hut located behind St. Charles Garnier Church, 3645 Benvoulin Rd.

And a community in Ghana will definitely be happy when hundreds of bicycles arrive in the near future. According to Lian Couper, a volunteer with the Kelowna chapter of Bicycles for Humanity, it isn’t practical to send children’s bikes overseas. “We ship containers full of adult bikes. We can take the wheels and handle bars and turn them to put massive amounts in one container,” said Couper. “Children’s bikes take up too much room to ship. Also, the bikes that we send are for nurses, teachers and adults who go into the community to help.” Couper said that people still donate all types of bikes to Bicycles for Humanity; therefore, the organization holds sales to give the community inexpensive children’s bikes and gather money to

CENTRE OF GRAVITY

Teen sisters swing with the best at volleyball tourney Wade Paterson STAFF REPORTER

There were a range of ages at the Center of Gravity beach volleyball tournament this past weekend. Many athletes were in their 20s; some were in their early 30s. And then there was one team significantly younger than the rest. Tsawwassen twins Megan and Nicole McNamara celebrated their 15th birthday last Wednesday. But the McNamara sisters proved that age and skill aren’t directly related when it comes to beach volleyball. Megan and Nicole won their first match Saturday and earned hardfought points against the No. 2 ranked women’s

beach volleyball duo in Canada. According to their father, Sean, the girls have been playing beach volleyball for the past three years. In that time, they’ve built up a pretty impressive resume. “They won a pro tournament in Vancouver a few weeks ago, they won the U-16 nationals last year in Toronto, this year they’re competing in the U-18 beach nationals,â€? said Sean. “They would like to play for Canada at some point and go to world competitions‌their ultimate goal would be to play in the Olympics one day.â€? It’s a lofty ambition, but the twins are already battling against some of Canada’s best teams. And

they have a lot of time to perfect their game. One advantage that the girls have is a familiarity with each other that other teams cannot match. Another benefit is that Megan is right-handed and Nicole swings with her left, which allows both girls to spike from a preferred position on the sand. Coming into this year’s Center of Gravity beach volleyball tournament, the McNamara sisters’ expectations were realistic. Last year, the girls won only one of their matches. This year, the goal was to win two or three. “There are really good teams here,� said Megan. “We’re close though,� added Nicole. The McNamara family are used to packing suitcases to ensure Megan

Vet steps up to help save dog A West Kelowna veterinarian and his staff are heroes to a Vernon boy and his puppy Tasha. Dr. Moshe Oz, who operates the Rose Valley Veterinary Hospital and writes a pet care column for the Capital News, stepped in to donate nearly $2,000 in life-saving veterinary services for the brindle mastiff puppy named Tasha. Vernon youngster Kolby received the dog as a birthday present. “The puppy was purchased from a local home breeder but as soon as the family took her home it was clear that something wasn’t right,” said Suzanne Pugh, manager of the Kelowna SPCA branch. “Tasha was lethargic and at first the family thought she might just be missing her siblings. “After four days the

family took the puppy to their local veterinarian in Vernon, who determined that Tasha had parvoviral enteritis (parvo), a serious and often deadly viral disease that affects young, unvaccinated puppies between six weeks and six months of age.” Parvo attacks rapidly, dividing cells in the intestinal tract and bone marrow, causing severe vomiting, diarrhea, impaired immune function and, in some cases, death, said Pugh. “The family immediately contacted the breeder and although they had already bonded with Tasha they reluctantly returned the puppy to ensure that she would receive the expensive veterinary treatment required,” said Pugh. “They were heartbroken, but were not in a position to take care of the

bills themselves.” Unbeknownst to them, neither was the breeder. “The breeder contacted one of our special constables asking if the SPCA could take the puppy and provide the care she needed,” said Pugh. Tasha was taken into SPCA custody and rushed to the nearest veterinary clinic—Rose Valley Veterinary Hospital, where she was placed in isolation and given immediate medical treatment. “We were able to trace Tasha’s new family in Vernon and put Dr. Oz in touch with them. When he heard their story, he offered to cover all of the medical costs to save Tasha’s life,” said Pugh. Dr. Oz and his team worked in shifts to provide the 24-hour a day care that Tasha needed. A healthy Tasha was eventually reunited with

her original Vernon adopted family. “We really want to acknowledge amazing veterinarians in our community, like Dr. Oz, who go above and beyond to help animals,” said Pugh. She also urges pet guardians to ensure that their pets are vaccinated against parvo. “This is a deadly, but preventable disease and guardians should ensure their pets are protected.”

Firefighters rescue pet dog and cat from inside Sumac Rd. burning house A house is in bad condition, but the owner’s pets are safe after a Sumac Road house caught on fire last weekend. Kelowna fire crews responded to a report of a structure fire at 199 Sumac Rd. East at 1:37 p.m. last Saturday. A total of three engines, a command vehicle, a rescue vehicle and 15 firefighters, along with RCMP and ambulance personnel attended the blaze. Residents were not home at the time of the fire; however, their dog and cat were both inside the house. Firefighters managed to rescue both pets. According to Henry Roelofs, platoon captain of the Kelowna Fire Department, the fire appeared to have started at the rear of the house in a covered patio and extended into the main roof of the house. The first attack crew was able to quickly extinguish the majority of the fire, but it took two hours

ave once hearty North Americans developed a culture of weakness? Have an ache? Get a new body part. A case of the sads? Well, we know what happens then. Now there’s even medical intervention for social problems. It turns out a number of parents are allowing their ugly ducklings to get surgery so they can skirt the attention of bullies and fast-track their way to swan-status. The most recent child to throw her body under the knife for the sake of alleviating a bully-problem is U.S. teenager Nadia Ilse. At 14, Ilse has been the victim of taunting about her big ears. She’d long lamented the issue to her mother then the Little Baby Face Foundation, which helps children born with ‘facial deformities,’ offered

KATHARTIC

Kathy Michaels to help her out and pay for otoplasty. The troubling turn in this tale of surgery, however, is that the doctor performing the operation recommended that Ilse, not only pin her ears back, but also straighten out her septum and soften what was, in his view, a “pointy chin.” A new, Ilse rose from beneath the scalpel with over $40,000 surgery and she now feels “beautiful.” Her strange modern day twist on the Hans Christian Andersen classic The Ugly Duckling isn’t unique either. It mirrors that of

13-year-old Nicolette Taylor, who had a nose surgery to overcome online harassment and name-calling at school. There was also sevenyear-old Samantha Shaw, who had her ears pinned back to escape name-calling and harassment last year. Now, I know there’s all that business about walking in another’s shoes before judging them, but frankly I don’t want to. I’m sure the bullying they experienced was horrible, but all these poor kids have learned, thanks to their parents, is that the way to deal with tyranny is to bend to it. When bullies try to steamroll you, accept that they’re right—you are disgusting, and the bland face of stupidity pushing you around knows what’s right. Slice up who you are,

and become one of them. With surgical solutions, these kids will never get the lessons that come from overcoming adversity or most importantly, learning to love and respect themselves. Can you imagine if Hans Christian Andersen had written the story of a homely little bird born in a barnyard, ripping out its rough feathers so it looked like something else? It’s hard to imagine what the lesson in that tale would be. Regardless, it would have not offered countless children the type of inspiration needed to stand up and be themselves. At best it would foster a culture of lame ducks. Kathy Michaels is a staff reporter for the Capital News. kmichaels @kelownacapnews.com

he Archives of Internal Medicine produced a research paper in February that may be helpful in assisting women who suffer from dysmenorrhea, or painful menstruation. Dysmenorrhea is one of the most common gynaecologic complaints in young women. It is estimated that it affects approximately 40 to 70 per cent of women of reproductive age. Ten per cent of women describe their pain as disabling and severe. Dr. Antonio Lasko, of the department of Internal Medicine at the University of Messina, Italy, found that single high doses of vitamin D greatly reduce the amount of menstrual pain experienced and reduce the need for pain medication for up to two months. It is believed that the pain experienced during dysmenorrhea is triggered by excessive production of prostaglandins made from omega 6 fatty acids. Unfortunately, omega 6 fatty acids are abundant in our North American diet. It is believed that vitamin D acts as a potent anti-inflammatory and may reduce the production of arachadonic acid which will then produce excess prostaglandins causing inflammation, and therefore pain. Essentially, vitamin D will stop the formation of excessive prostaglandins. The sample study included 40 women between the ages of 18 and 40 years of age who had experienced painful menstruation four times in the previous six months and had a low serum level of

ASK DR.THIEL

Markus Thiel vitamin D. They were allowed to use nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs but they had to record how much and whether or not they used them during menstruation. The study group was broken into two groups, one receiving 300,000 IUs of vitamin D and the other half receiving a placebo. The vitamin D was given five days prior to the time that they expected menstruation to commence. His findings were most interesting. He found that the vitamin D group reported a 41per dent reduction in their pain while the placebo group reported no reduction in pain whatsoever. Interestingly enough, the vitamin D group did not report taking any pain medication during their menstrual cycle. The placebo group reported taking their nonsteroidal anti-inflammatories at least once. It is important to point out that this large dose of vitamin D was given once and not to be taken daily. Too much of a good thing can be bad for you. The literature reports the daily use of this sort of dosage can produce a state called hypercalcemia, among other things. It is my opinion that vitamin D is being underutilized especially by

those of us in northern climates where exposure to sun is reduced. It is estimated that 75 per cent of North Americans are vitamin D deficient. In fact, vitamin D deficiencies will lead to a significant increase in frequency of colds and flus, cardiovascular disease in conjunction with inflammatory diseases and cancer. Is it any wonder that the highest incidence of colds and flus are where we have the least amount of sunlight? There is a significant body of research that proves that vitamin D supplementation to optimum levels profoundly decreased the incidence of cancer and cardiovascular disease in addition to osteoporosis. Deficiencies in this most important vitamin will also lead to increases in blood pressure, muscle weakness and pain, depression and lethargy. When one studies the human genome, 10 per cent of the entire genome relies on vitamin D for its proper manufacturing. There is no other substance that has this much of a profound effect on our genes in this proportion. Be sure to consult with your health practitioner prior to initiating such a therapy as high dosage vitamin D supplementation. That being said, I think it’s use is being grossly under appreciated and managing overall health and chronic pain.

Feast on fine food at a farmer’s field Judie Steeves STAFF REPORTER

FarmFolk/CityFolk’s annual Feast of Fields will be held in the Central Okanagan this year on Sunday, Aug. 12, at Claremont Ranch Organics in Lake Country. This is the fourth Feast of Fields to be held in the Okanagan Valley, although similar events have been held in the Lower Mainland since 1995, and on Vancouver Island for the past number of years. Participants will be handed a wine glass and linen napkin when they arrive at the farm, and dozens of the valley’s top chefs, winemakers and brewmasters will offer tastes of locally-sourced, seasonal foods, often made from

products grown right in the fields where the event is held. This year, 58 producers will feature products from more than 40 local farms, including Kelowna chef Rod Butters’ honey glazed Sterling Springs’ chicken with dried apricot and hazelnut crust. It will be paired with an infused apricot cocktail using Meadow Vista Honey Wines. The Vintage Room at the Coast Capri will be offering pulled bison and plum ravioli with peppered Saskatoon berry dust on arugula, while Poppadoms will offer an Okanagan saag paneer pakora. The idea is to help consumers make that link between the food that goes into their mouths and the farms on which it is produced.

At the same time, chefs delight in preparing food that is as fresh as possible—and to serve it in the field it was grown in, makes it pretty fresh. The host farm this year was the McCoubrey Farm until Matt and Molly Thurston purchased it last year and returned its original name to the property, Claremont Ranch. They’re celebrating the 100th anniversary of the farm this year. There won’t be on-site parking so a shuttle bus will take participants from George Elliot Secondary School to the farm. Live music will include Sarah Mainland and her Celtic harp; Chloe, Kyle & Company; Scratchpony; Jennifer Boal; Becca Mabbett; Quiannah Kendal-

Ward and Alexandria Colter. In addition to fine food and drink, there’ll be farm tours at 2 and 4 p.m. and a variety of silent auction items as well as a marketplace where local products will be available. Funds raised go towards the work of FarmFolk CityFolk, including the Meet Your Maker Okanagan, which helps local producers and buyers meet and network; a seed saving workshop at Sunshine Farm in Kelowna as part of the B.C. Seeds project; and Shared Harvest, an online resource for those wanting or having products available. Tickets for this year’s event are available from Choices Market in Kelowna or online at: www. feastoffields.com.

THE FEAST Of Fields takes place Aug. 12 in Lake Country at Claremont Farms.

Brain research illustrates how free will is an illusion P hilosophers have debated the existence of free will for centuries. Most of us take it for granted that we have free will and conduct ourselves accordingly. Even those who believe we do not have free will behave as if they do. As we learn more about how the brain functions, it is harder and harder to truly believe in absolute free will. Every day, I am confronted in my office with people who behave in ways that even they believe are irrational. There are all sorts of situations in which people do things they do not believe in, do not want to do and yet can’t stop themselves from doing. These mental states come in many guises and may be described as compulsions, addictions, mania and psychoses to mention only four clinical states.

HEALING MINDS

Paul Latimer People who behave in socially unacceptable or even criminal ways while in these conditions are often granted some clemency in recognition of the fact that their behaviour is beyond their control. When their behaviour runs afoul of the law we sometimes diminish their responsibility in view of their lack of control. But these are special, relatively uncommon situations. How uncommon? The more we learn about the workings of the human brain, the more we realize that a great deal of everyday human behaviour is strongly influenced by a combination of genetics and environmental

influences over which the individual may not have control and may not even recognize as influencing their behavior. Of course, many take advantage of this fact in marketing, politics, scams and propaganda. But it can and has been argued that all human behaviour is determined by combinations of factors over which the individual has no control and often no awareness. We know that much of human behaviour is influenced by unconscious factors and that our conscious world only represents a small portion of what is actually going on in our lives. Our conscious world is not even necessarily accurate. It is commonplace for us to provide explanations for our behaviour that satisfy our need for an explanation, but which actually have nothing to do with why we actually do something.

40 % OFF

It is common in psychotherapy and counseling for therapists to provide explanations for clients or to lead the client to recognize reasons for their behaviour that have no validity in fact. Past life regressions are an obvious example but much more gardenvariety examples are also prevalent. When some-

one gets depressed it is natural to look around for a reason. It is a rare person who can’t find a stressor they can link to their mood, but often these attributions are wrong. This sometimes becomes obvious when a diagnosis and pharmacological treatment are arrived at that completely reverse the depression.

Few people today would accept that they have no free will, but many philosophers and scientists are coming to that startling conclusion. The acceptance of this position will have profound implications for judicial concepts of responsibility and punishment. We may still need to protect ourselves from

dangerous offenders but our moral judgments and retributive justice system may have to be revised. Our jails are already filling with the de-institutionalized mentally ill and many already feel a revision is long overdue.

.C.’s Privacy Commissioner is examining the use of cruiser-mounted cameras by police to scan licence plates from passing vehicles. Critics have objected, citing privacy concerns, that the RCMP and other forces are using the plate-scanning technology for purposes beyond the original intent. The camera-equipped police cars scan passing or parked vehicle plates against ICBC and national police databases. Police instantly see if a car is stolen or un-

insured—or if the probable driver is unlicensed, prohibited from driving, wanted by police or accused of a crime. Each time a flagged vehicle is detected, its time and location are recorded and kept for two years. Rob Wipond, one of three independent researchers whose work prompted the privacy investigation, said the criteria for generating actionable hits has crept from traffic violations to data like whether you’ve ever gone to court to seek child custody or had a mental health episode that involved police.

j

That might seem laudable when it helps police find an abduction victim, solve a murder or keep sex offenders from parking outside schools. But Wipond envisions British-style uses, like recording the licence plates of vehicles coming to a lawful demonstration, then using ALPR to detect, intercept and slow the same protesters headed to future gatherings. Wipond theorizes police algorithms could one day decide that because someone went to a suspicious location, they should be flagged for closer

scrutiny in the future—data that might result in them not being allowed to fly or cross borders. Would you be comfortable being tracked all the time? Would if affect your sense of freedom? The RCMP are considering keeping all plate recognition data for every vehicle the system identifies. And given the program has morphed from tracking stolen cars to tracking a broader set of targets, it’s fair to ask, what next?We need to determine a fair and proportionate use for the technology that still respects one’s right to privacy.

Posturing over pipeline across northern B.C. won’t help

T

he B.C. Liberal government is taking its new hard-line approach to federal environmental hearings on the Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline proposal in September. Environment Minister Terry Lake has filed the B.C. government’s notice to cross-examine Enbridge, one of the world’s biggest pipeline operators. Lake outlined the “tough questions” B.C. representatives will ask about spill response capacity on land and sea, tanker escort tugboats, pipe wall thickness, and Enbridge’s sluggish response to a pipeline rupture in Michigan. That’s all fine, and to be expected

after Premier Christy Clark’s high-profile confrontation with Alberta Premier Alison Redford going into the recent premiers’ meeting in Halifax. Clark’s demands for “world-leading” safety and spill response, as well as meeting the constitutional obligation to consult and accommodate aboriginal groups along the route, are mostly a statement of the obvious. Her call for a “fair share” of proceeds from exported oil to reflect B.C.’s risk has been assaulted from all sides.

Pipeline opponents VICTORIA seized on Clark’s sugVIEWS gestion that a major oil spill might be tolerable if there was enough money in it for B.C. NDP leader Adrian Dix Tom picked up the theme as Fletcher he conducted his own belated tour of the proposed route to reiterate his opposition. There had been earlier hints from Alberta that B.C. might need further rewards for the risk. But when Clark made the “fair share” demand public, Redford was moved to channel Margaret Thatcher, declaring: “The Pre-

mier of Alberta is not going to blink on royalties.” The lady’s not for blinking, but neither is B.C.’s Iron Snowbird, as Preston Manning dubbed Clark this spring. All this political theatre doesn’t amount to much. I’ll stand by my January prediction that the Enbridge proposal is unlikely to proceed, mainly due to the tangled state of aboriginal claims. Wealthy U.S. foundations that view the B.C. North Coast as their 500-year eco-experiment will be happy to help fund a decade of legal challenges, while continuing the media-spinning and protest support they are doing now. Even if some way can be found to

levy a B.C. tax on revenues from the Northern Gateway pipeline, it’s no solution. For one thing, it would confer an advantage to the Trans-Mountain pipeline that has been shipping Alberta oil to Burnaby and the U.S. for more than 60 years. The competing expansion proposal by Trans-Mountain’s current owner, Kinder Morgan, shows the inconsistency of opposition to pipelines. Does anyone really believe that a new pipeline built to the highest standards ever would be too dangerous, while a 60-year-old pipeline is acceptable? Protesters have an easy target in

We’d be crazy to legalize marijuana

To the editor: In response to Darrin Fiddler’s letter to the editor with regard to marijuana, he has omitted several points that need mentioning. To some degree I feel like an under-achiever as I do not have any of the vices that Mr. Fiddler claimed we all harbor, but as a pilot and businessman, I have had experience in the past with marijuana users. When serving my apprenticeship in a steel fabricating shop, my life and those of my crew shift were almost ended by the overhead gantry crane

driver. He scattered the crew with a 20-ton load of sheet steel wildly swinging over our heads (followed by) a big silly grin on his face and a “peace” sign for all. Legalize marijuana? Ask our almost-widows. As a businessman who travels to the USA frequently, a hitchhiker needing a lift compromised my passage. The cannabis resin in his clothing, although minute, transferred to the car seats, was enough to catch the attention of the Drug Enforcement Agency dog handler. Questions were asked, an entry made on my data

file, and (I experience) delays now in crossing the border. Of note, this incident happened two weeks after he had been in my car. The DEA do not have a permissive attitude— they are fully aware of the damage done to the social and economic well being of their country and respond in kind. Legalize marijuana? Sadly many adults in responsible position, who are addicted to marijuana (but deny it) dismiss it as a social outlet. Regrettably it is the children who are watching and learning who lack the maturity to

make a judgment call on its use, who are set on the road to dependency and the rest of the “benefits.” These so called “benefits” include: Dropping out of school, inability to concentrate, can’t keep a job, indolence, violence, bush parties/forest fires and many time leading them to living on the streets. On the adult side: Broken homes, unemployable, lack of ambition, breaking and entering, no international travel privileges, drive-by shootings, etc. The list is long and downward. The benefits? None

comes to mind—ask the gantry crane driver. I thank our government and law enforcement agencies for standing tall on this one. This is one disaster that you won’t want to meet coming at you on a rainy night with your family strapped in the car. Or how about the captain of your 737 shooting a difficult instrument landing approach to minimums on a stormy night? Legalize marijuana? Right! Brian R. Mellis, West Kelowna

Failing grade for Canada Post delivery service

To the editor: This letter is to illustrate how lax, or shall I say lousy, is the service we get from Canada Post. We were expecting a package and finally it arrived in West Kelowna. We were notified by

Canada Post in the sloppiest, careless way by a card left on the driveway instead of in our mail box. I was darn lucky to find it as we do have a strong wind blowing near the lake where we live. The individual hand-

ling this job must have been too tired to place that card in our mail box, or even ring the doorbell as we were in the backyard at the time. The show The Postman Always Rings Twice was not portrayed in a

worse way in this instance. I went to the website to put in my two cents worth but it just stated that they had too many complaints already and could not handle any more. That’s a great way to

operate a business, and I can assure you that Canada Post will not be used by our family to send anything anywhere. Thanks for UPS, they at lest “deliver the goods.” Ron Barnard, West Kelowna

▼ DONATE REGULARLY

Your blood donation will save someone’s life

To the editor: Have you ever thought what would happen if nobody donated blood? It would have a huge impact on the world as we know it. No more blood for accident victims. No more blood for people needing surgery. No more blood and blood products for critically ill people. No

more blood for cancer patients. No more blood for sick children. The lack of blood would mean a lot of these people would die. Simple as that. Life or death. Most people have a friend or loved one who have had blood transfusions, some a little,

some a lot. Can you imagine if that person had not had access to blood when they needed it? You may have lost them forever. Most people do not stop to think about how much blood is needed each and every day to ensure this does not happen. Most people do not

donate blood. Did you know that, of all the eligible donors in Canada, three per cent donate? Only three per cent! So, next time you think you are too busy or too scared to donate, think of what I have just told you. Approximately one hour every eight weeks could make the difference

between life or death for someone. One hour to save up to four lives. Call and make an appointment today, don’t put it off. The next person you save could be you! Call 1-888-2donate (1888-236-6283) Willy Moes, Kelowna

With a tenfold increase to 25 tankers a month proposed to sail under the Lions Gate bridge, a heavy oil spill from Second Narrows to Stanley Park would be catastrophic to Vancouver’s environment and economy.

clearing Burrard Inlet for near-daily tanker transits would disrupt the rest of B.C.’s shipping trade. An Angus Reid poll last week showed as many as half of respondents remain open-minded about the costs and benefits of new oil pipelines across B.C. Unlike B.C. politicians, they seem interested in learning more before making up their minds. Dix and the NDP ran to the front of the anti-

pipeline parade early, as they did with the carbon tax and other issues. Clark began the Northern Gateway discussion with a principled position to wait for the result of the federal review, but that’s apparently out the window with an election looming.

Our pets have a way of getting wrapped around our hearts

I

am positive that two days ago I heard her dog tags and leash clinking in the air as she ran down the backstairs from the house to the barbecue area. However, that is ridiculous, because‌well, she is dead. I’m equally convinced that last week while I worked in my basement office, I heard her pitter patter across the dining room floor. Then I remembered— my TeddyBear is gone. I am not sure how long this will continue, but I have a feeling it will take quite a while. Losing a loving pet like TeddyBear is never easy for she was an exceptional dog—the ‘Dog of the Year’ every year in my world. For Teresa and I, our home is suddenly a lot quieter (albeit also a lot less hairy).

HODGE PODGE

Charlie Hodge It’s interesting how many pet owners themselves become creatures of habits taught to them by their pets. Everyday around 3:30 p.m., Teddy would insist on going outside on the front step to wait for Teresa to come home from work. I see the hurt in Teresa’s eyes now when she arrives home and Teddy’s big brown eyes and wagging tail are not there to welcome her. When we get up in the mornings, we still take a big step to get out of bed because TeddyBear always slept right next to

the side of the bed, either on Teresa’s side or mine. I never thought I would actually miss the smell of stinky dog that just ran around in the rain —but I do. Teddybear came into my world seven or eight years ago and, in a twisted sort of way, perhaps saved my life. Certainly, she had a major impact on some key decisions I made in my world about six years ago. It was my ex-wife who brought TeddyBear into my world. We had lost a previous loving dog a few months before and Sharon could not stand watching me mope around the house. She saw an ad in the paper for a ‘loving malamute-collie cross’ and insisted we check her out. I argued and lost. On the way to see the dog, I listed off all the rea-

sons I could think of to not get another dog. In reality, I simply did not want to go through the hurt again. My main excuse was that we had a pile of cats and the dog would have to like cats. What fouryear-old dog could possibly learn to get along with five strange cats? My argument disappeared the instant we saw TeddyBear. She was on the deck of the house when we arrived and in between her front paws was a tiny kitten curled up asleep. Teddy saw my vehicle, jumped up, ran across the yard and into the passenger seat of the car. I was hooked. Some two years later, Sharon and I split up and she moved to Hawaii. I admit to feeling devastated at the time and was tempted to sell everything, buy a camper van,

and take off as well. However, I could not stomach the idea of giving away or abandoning TeddyBear and the five cats. I spent the next few months feeling sorry for myself, drinking like a fish, and generally just being an idiot. Still, every day I returned home to a dog that loved me and needed me. In reality, I probably needed her more. TeddyBear was always there for me, and eventually my world brightened up again. When I met Teresa and fell in love she had three cats of her own. Eventually we were married and our household at one point actually contained eight cats and the dog. Never once in eight years did TeddyBear even as much as chase one of the cats. In fact, she guard-

ed them all and was particularly close to three of them. On Friday, July 27, we awoke to discover that Teddy could not get up. Her hind legs had simply stopped working, her age having caught up to her. I made the difficult phone call to Dr. Pat, our wonderful vet at Noah’s Ark. Dr. Pat had a horrendous schedule that day and could not get to the house for several hours, so I sat on the floor with Teddy for five hours and just held her. During that time, an amazing interaction took place between TeddyBear and Max the cat. The only male animal in the house (next to moi), Max is a Persian with the personality of a dog. I am convinced he thinks he is a canine. Max came over to

Teddy and laid down beside her for about half an hour, then five minutes before the vet arrived he got up, wandered over to Teddy’s head which was on my lap, and licked Teddy’s nose three times. That is when I lost it. Teddy just sighed a satisfied sigh and I swear I saw her smile. As much as Teresa and I loved Teddy and are big dog fans, we have no plans to get another dog at this time. In fairness, neither of us have the energy it takes to properly care and/or train a new dog—nor are we ready for one yet. I know that in time the loss of our loyal companion will ease and the hurt inside will simply be replaced by fond memories—but not today. Today, I just plain miss my pal TeddyBear Hodge—the queen of the all dogs in our world.

Ask Dr. Ike What is stress? Stress is a feeling that’s created when we react to particular situations or events. For stress to take place, there must be a perception of some level of danger or threat. The events that provoke stress are called stressors. The body responds to stressors by activating the nervous system and speciďŹ c hormones. This natural reaction is known as the stress response. Health problems occur when the body is in a stressresponse mode for a long period of time, but even a short period of stress can be detrimental to health. Therefore, stress management is an extremely important skill to develop, both for better health and for a better life experience. Dr. Ike (Karunyasopon) holds a PhD in Behavioral Science and is the founder of STRESS & WELLNESS CLINIC in Kelowna. (http://stressandwellnessclinic.com). He is also a certiďŹ ed (Florida State) clinical Sex Therapist and certiďŹ ed Professional Life Coach.

In The 4-Club Challenge, players each choose only four clubs and work as a team within their foursome to determine their strategy for the day as well as for each hole. “One of the best things about Golf To Conquer Cancer is the format,� said Ian Leggatt, a former PGA tour winner. “It’s great for all skill levels, but more importantly, it’s designed to be played in four hours, all while raising funds to conquer cancer.� For more information or to register, check out www.golftoconquercancer.ca.

SPORTS Athletics claim Premier Baseball League title Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

Even a bout of the flu wasn’t enough to deny the Okanagan Athletics of the prize they most coveted from the season’s opening day. The A’s, with eight players battling sickness throughout the weekend, took down the North Shore Twins 9-7 Sunday in Nanaimo to win the B.C. Premier Baseball League championship. It was the first ever PBL title for a Kelownabased team since the program’s inception in 2004. “I’m so happy for the guys,� said A’s head coach Evan Bailey. “I knew we had the team and we had a chance from the start of the season, and to see it actually happen is an amazing feeling. Things came together at the right time. With so many guys sick, it was a gutsy effort. This

is such a tight-knit group. I’m so proud of them.� After posting the best record (32-16) in team history in 2012 and finishing in a tie for third, the A’s knocked off the Abbotsford Cardinals on July 28 in the opening round of the playoffs. A week later in Nanaimo, the A’s posted a 2-1 record in the round robin of the PBL’s Final Four to advance to Sunday’s championship game against North Shore. Brandon Sonnenberg had four RBIs in the final as the A’s built up a 7-2 lead, then held off a late charge by the Twins to capture the gold medal. Morgan Lofstrom earned the win in relief, while Josh Croft picked up the save with the last three outs. Among the many notable offensive performances at provincials was James Ward’s gigan-

I KNEW WE HAD THE TEAM AND WE HAD A CHANCE FROM THE START OF THE SEASON. TO SEE IT ACTUALLY HAPPEN IS AN AMAZING FEELING. Evan Bailey, A’s head coach

CONTRIBUTED

THE OKANAGAN ATHLETICS celebrate their first ever B.C. Premier Baseball League title Sunday in Nanaimo. tic .700 batting average— despite suffering from the flu—and a pair of home runs from Croft. Individual accomplishments aside, Bailey said it was a genuine team effort by the A’s.

“Literally everyone that played did their part,� said Bailey, whose team batted .339 at provincials. “From one through nine in our lineup, it was unbelievable job by every guy. I’ve never seen a team

this strong offensively.� As for the flu bug that ran through his lineup, Bailey had just 11 players available for the A’s lone defeat of the tournament on Saturday against the Twins.

The head coach said his team’s mental toughness and resolve was personified by pitcher Clinton Heidebrecht who, despite ailing badly, picked up a must-win on Saturday night to help send the Athletics to the final. “In the game against Nanaimo, Clint was really sick,� said Bailey. “He was throwing up between innings and going right back out there to pitch. I

finally had to take him out before the sixth. It was a gutsy performance.� In addition to the players, Bailey credited much of the A’s success to the work done behind the scenes over the last several seasons by current manager Gary Yates and former manager Greg Stearns. Bailey, who has coached the A’s for three seasons and watched their record improve each year, will return to the team’s helm in 2013. The PBL champion A’s are: Nolan Handley, Clinton Heidebrecht, Dillon Kakoshke, Morgan Lofstrom, Trevor Lofstrom, Jordan Ramirez, Will Russell, James Walker, Nathan Ackerman, Davis Todosichuk, Josh Croft, James Ward, Dawson Yates. Brandon Johnson, Dallis Senger, Kody Smith and Brandon Sonnenberg.

Sun regroups after tough opener Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

If only there was a magic bag of tricks, Gavin Lake could reach in and perform a quick-fix for what ailed his Okanagan Sun in the club’s 2012 season opener. In reality, the Sun head coach and his staff will simply be stressing the fundamentals this week in the wake of Saturday night’s lopsided B.C. Football Conference defeat at the hands of the Langley Rams. “We just have to go back to the basics, it’s as simple as that,” said Lake, whose club will visit the Kamloops Broncos Sunday night. “Blocking, tackling, knowing the point of attack, the basic things you

have to do to be successful.” The basics also include holding on to the football, a fundamental duty the Sun struggled with from start to finish against Langley. The Rams turned eight Okanagan turnovers into 35 points en route to a 4214 dismantling of the Sun, the team’s biggest ever home-opening loss. Rookie quarterback Cam Bedore, who had just four full practices under his belt prior to Saturday, fumbled three times, the first two leading to Langley touchdowns, both by former Sun running back Daniel Xavier. Bedore also threw three interceptions as the Sun fell into a 14-0 hole early and simply couldn’t climb out.

“It’s one of those things, if you turn over the ball over as much as we did, you just can’t win,” he said. “We have a rookie quarterback in there who hasn’t had a lot of reps. “We had a lot of good performances from some guys, but not nearly enough. We threw too many interceptions, fumbled too many times and took some costly penalties.” Given the short field the Rams were given to work with much of the night, Lake was generally pleased with the play of the Sun defense. Another bright spot was the play of Sun veteran Bobby Davis who scored both majors and racked up 100 yards in total offense. With a roster turnover

of close to 50 per cent and many players with little or no junior football experience, Lake knew his club would be a work in progress this season. It’s a one-step-at-atime philosophy for Lake and the Sun, with the Kamloops Broncos next on the agenda. “That’s the challenge with the young guys we have in there, it takes some time to find their comfort level…but that will come,” Lake said. “I think it’s safe to assume we’ll see a much tighter game in Kamloops, and if we can do a much better job of hanging on to the football, then we should be in good shape.” The Sun and Broncos meet Sunday evening at Hillside Stadium in Kamloops. Kick off is 5 p.m.

Frandsen gave his all at Olympics A medal in consecutive Olympic Games wasn’t to be for Kelowna’s Scott Frandsen and partner Dave Calder of Victoria. The Canadian duo placed sixth in the final of the men’s pairs in rowing on Friday in London in a race dominated by the favoured Kiwis, Hamish Bond and Eric Murray. France was second, while Britain took the bronze. Frandsen was disappointed he and Calder didn’t put up a better fight with a medal on the line. “We became aware of where everyone else was at around 1250 or 1500 in, and we were behind the race,” said Frandsen. “It’s tough to nail down. I thought we had a solid piece—it felt pretty ef-

National decathlon gold repeat for Turner

James Turner first day and his performance wasn’t at all indicative of how he can do. “Considering the day he had, it’s a credit to the way he picked himself to win the national championship, and it demon-

strated his character.” For Turner’s part, he said OAC and Sima-Ledding both played a key role in his championship effort. “I really have to thank Okanagan track and Pat (Sima-Ledding) for their support. She’s helped me a lot this year.” Earlier this summer, Turner placed 18th overall in decathlon at the World Junior Championships in Spain, including a fifthplace finish and personal best in the 1,500 metres. Turner, who attended the University of TexasArlington last season, is undecided on his educa-

tion plans for 2012-13, but is looking into his options at both Canadian and American schools.

JOYCE CONCLUDES SEASON A hamstring injury kept Keefer Joyce from performing up to his normal standard at the Canadian junior track and field championships in Winnipeg. Joyce finished fifth overall in the semifinals of the 100 metres in 10.87 seconds. The KSS grad warmed up for the final but made the choice to withdraw from the race as he felt the injury would prevent him

from competing in top form. Joyce will now take a few weeks to recover and start back into his off season rehab/training for a strong 2013.

Kelowna’s James Turner capped off the 2012 track and field summer season in style with a gold medal at the Canadian junior athletics championships in Winnipeg. For the second straight year Turner took top spot in the men’s decathlon competition. Turner, who turns 19 on Saturday, compiled 6,758 points over 10 events on July 28 and 29 beating the second-place finisher, Jesse Drennan of Nova Scotia, by 340 points. Turner didn’t have the best start on Day 1, finishing fifth in high jump and second in both shot put and long jump. Still, with wins in the 100 and 400 metres, the Okanagan Athletics Club member was in second place, just 18 points back of Drennan. On Day 2, Turner walked away with the title, winning both the discus and javelin, placing third in pole vault and 110 hurdles, and fourth in the 1,500. While Turner didn’t topple the national record like he had hoped, he did what he had to do to strike gold. “After that tough first day I was just happy things came together for the second day and I was able to win,” Turner said. “After my third event, I knew I was too far off pace for the national record (7,080 points), so I just focused on getting the gold.” Okanagan Athletics Club coach Pat Sima-Ledding said Turner wasn’t quite in typical form but found a way to grind out another national title. “We definitely expected the win,” said Sima-Ledding. “I think he had a very challenging

B.C. cherries won’t be bound for China this year Unreasonable restrictions for imported fruit demanded by China creates need for more negotiations before local orchardists can solidify a new market for their cherry crops. Judie Steeves STAFF REPORTER

Cherry growers who had hoped to be able to export their fruit into China this year are disappointed that an acceptable agreement has not been reached, but they’re hopeful the government will continue negotiations. Kelowna grower Christine Dendy, who is president of the Okanagan Kootenay Cherry Growers’ Association, says China agreed to accept cherries from Canada, but insisted on a number of restrictions which would have made it not viable for growers to ship fruit there. For instance, she said one requirement was a mandatory 15-day period of cold treatment once the fresh fruit arrives in China, which would mean fruit flown there to ensure its freshness, would no longer have that quality advantage. “That undermines our marketing benefit of sending them fresh fruit by air,” she commented. “That’s unscientific and unjustified. They don’t require that of other countries. U. S. fruit is not held for 15 days,” she noted. The Chinese contend it is intended to ensure no insect pests come in with the fruit. However, Dendy noted that local fruit is washed, sorted and packed in a packing plant in the orchard; packaged in a plastic bag in a box, so no insects could get into the fruit once it’s packaged, which is just hours from it being picked. It’s refrigerated immediately. In addition, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency inspects fruit for export, looking for insect pests and diseases, but suddenly some countries want to design their own protocols instead of respecting the CFIA, as international markets have historically, Dendy explained.

“It’s worrying if now some countries don’t accept that,” she commented. In fact, China didn’t even require CFIA certification of fruit imported from Canada, she said. China also requires that all orchards be monitored from bud break through to shipping. Orchardists already do that, but not formally. This would require that orchardists fill out forms throughout the season, so there would be an incredible amount of extra paperwork. Then, they also want fruit destined for China segregated in storage from fruit heading for other locations. Direct access to China would allow growers far more options for marketing. Because there are direct flights there’s less handling of the fruit and a better chance that it will reliably arrive in good condition, said Dendy. By maintaining high quality, prices should also be better for the fruit. Dendy said growers are grateful for the efforts of government to work with China to open that market, but further negotiations will be needed, because these restrictions are not realistic. It’s a disappointment because growers had felt Chinese markets might be open this year to Canadian cherries. “B.C. cherry growers are very disappointed in this outcome but urge the government to continue negotiations for an acceptable agreement that would allow market access for Canadian cherries to China on rational conditions, equivalent to the terms extended by China to our U.S. competitors. “Canada’s existing CFIA inspection and phytosanitary certification protocols are internationally agreed and respected standards. The motive for the Chinese position is not clear,” said Dendy. jsteeves@kelownacapnews.com

Facts to consider before starting your own business

B

ritish Columbia is the hub of the small business world and Kelowna has many small businesses but very few large employers. If you think you have a great business idea but don’t know if it will fly or are wondering how to get started, here are some things to consider. First, consider your personality. Are you comfortable with working long hours to get your business up and running without knowing how much money you are going to end up with? Do you have any money to invest in your business venture? Are you tenacious, or do you give up easily? If you are going to have employees, do you have any previous experience as a manager or supervisor? If you answered no to any of the above questions, then perhaps either starting a business is not the right path for you or maybe those are just areas of your basic personality that you might need to work on. The next most important area concerns money. Do you know how much money it will take to get your business started? If you don’t, you need to create a cash flow plan and try to think of every conceivable expense that a business might incur in the first year. Have you developed a relationship with a banker? Many banks have some excellent cash flow templates and Community Futures (www.cfdcco.com) offers a course on how to develop a cash flow plan and even on how to get into business for yourself. Part of the money question is determining how much of your own money you can invest in your business venture and how much more you will be able to get from your suppliers, your family or your bank. If you are currently employed with a flexible employer, perhaps you can start to work on your business part-time and use some of your current salary to invest in your business. And then there’s our business market. Are there similar businesses to what you are considering

BEHIND THE COUNTER

Gabriele Banka doing already in the area? If so, could the area sustain another similar type of business? Are the existing businesses in the area in which you would like to open your business doing well? Do you understand the demographics of the kinds of people that would use your business? Have you picked out a location that is easy to access? Is your business space going to be big enough for you and for possible future expansion? Are there any legal issues with running the type of business that you are considering in that particular location? Is your business space going to require expensive renovations before you can move into it? Will you need equipment? If so, have you tracked down suppliers for your equipment and financing? Some equipment manufacturers also provide financing options such as leasing. What about using second-hand equipment to start? As well, you need to consider the questions about expenses, to be aware of the difference between your fixed expenses—those that you need to pay whether you make a sale or not, usually rent, insurance, utilities— and your variable expenses—those that are directly tied to the product such as staff, raw materials. Will you be able to cover your fixed expenses if you don’t make a sale for a few months? What are the major risks of your business idea? Would any of these risks force you into bankruptcy? If so, is there any way of reducing these risks? Perhaps you had $100,000 to invest in a business. One way to lower risk is not to invest all of it in the business, but to keep, say, $20,000 aside for a rainy day. If you are selling product, you need to deter-

E

mine how much of each product you will carry in stock, or if you will just order based on customer demand. Perhaps you can negotiate special terms with your suppliers because you are a new business. Some suppliers and manufacturers of product will provide special terms just to get their product out in as many places as possible. Have you figured out how much you need to charge for your product in order to cover your costs? What about any licenses, permits that you might need? Is your business subject to special laws and regulations? Finally, there is the need to maintain proper financial business records. I would recommend that you interview bookkeepers and accountants to help you get your books set up, especially if you need to register for GST/HST or have employees or inventory. Both accountants and lawyers should be consulted about setting up the kind of business structure you need to be operating in—sole proprietorship, partnership, or corporation.

very entrepreneur I meet while pursuing the activities of our local entrepreneurs society or conducting research for this column brings to me new excitement, knowledge and experience. The joy I receive can’t be easily explained for the success of our valley entrepreneurs who embrace positive change in their lives. I often receive emails from loyal readers and fans of entrepreneurship. About four months ago, my youngest daughter, Marissa, insisted I should visit a quaint consignment shop in Kelowna with the catchy name, Furniture Heaven. So, on a “hang-out with my wife day,” we checked out Furniture Heaven on a sunny afternoon. We would become truly amazed by the quality furniture products the store had to offer, home décor items and particularly the congenial demeanor of the sales staff. The “ we’ll be back” resonated in my mind searching rapidly for a legitimate excuse to visit again in a more buysomething mindset. Sometimes things are just meant to be, as after that visit I received an email from Glo McKinnon, proprietor of Furniture Heaven. Asking McKinnon if she would allow me to create an article on her story, received a supportive “let’s do it” reply. So I returned to Fur-

Upon entering the store, I was overwhelmed with the beautiful furniture display at the entrance. McKinnon met me, provided me an early morning coffee and our visit began. The world is not that large folks, as McKinnon informed me she was born in Thunder Bay, Ont., had two entrepreneurial sisters and parents who were in the music industry business, with her mother having previously hosted a television show in Saskatoon.

McKinnon took a business course and entered the secretarial world, finally deciding to move to the Okanagan when she was 29. She then entered the furniture sales world at Sears, where her passion for decorating and entrepreneurship took root. While employed at Sears, Glo excelled in the store’s “Whole Home University” course, specializing in interior design. She then tacked the federal government’s Community Futures Business Plan Program, arriving at the crossroads of becoming an Okanagan entrepreneur. McKinnon launched her Furniture Heaven dream venture in February 2002, with the tag line that I think is priceless: “Upscale home furnishings at gently-used prices.” But with McKinnon’s love of entrepreneurship, she quickly became

Making sense of Deal struck for Pine Acres union staff Aurora shooting

L

ike everyone, I was shocked and saddened by the tragic shooting in the Colorado community of Aurora in the U.S. It was even more poignant to realize the shooter grew up in San Diego just a mile from my nephew, attending a neighbouring high school and playing soccer against my nephewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s team. He was apparentSOUL ly a normal, high-achievSEARCHING ing boy until the onset of schizophrenia, which tends to come on suddenly in late teens or early 20s. This tragedy raises Linda many questions. For spirHorton itual people of all faiths, it is not a time for quick assumptions about the nature of â&#x20AC;&#x153;evilâ&#x20AC;? or quick certainties about an apparent â&#x20AC;&#x153;villain.â&#x20AC;? It is a time for profound compassion and grief for all those whose lives were harmed or destroyed, including the young shooter and his family. Like many, I do not see how the easy availability of assault weapons can be justified, morally or practically. Assault weapons have no reason for existence except to deal death indiscriminately to large numbers. No religion supports such disrespect for human life. My own spiritual perspective doubts the ethics of using them even in warfare, but certainly not by untrained private citizens. Jesus taught love even of enemies, let alone innocent bystanders. Muhammad and his followers may have been fighters by necessity, yet in the spirit of their faith they left their weapons outside the city of Mecca and put themselves at the mercy of their enemies. Japan, which allows few guns, has remarkably little violence. Possessing a gun, while it may create an illusion of safety in an uncertain world, would not have made the Aurora theatre goers safer. More amateurs carrying guns in public places potentially leads to even more carnage, and there are many accidental deaths from guns every year. Considering â&#x20AC;&#x153;myâ&#x20AC;? property of more value than a human life raises additional moral questionsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;would we go back to public hangings for stealing a loaf of bread? Even our lives, precious as they are, are not to be preserved at all costsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;that would be idolatry. Both in Aurora and in Knoxville several years ago when a church of my faith was invaded by a shooter, there were those who deliberately put themselves in harmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s way to save others. Then there is the question about the nature of mental illness. It is clear to me that the Aurora shooter suffered a psychotic break of a type that might happen to a young person in any family. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve known a number of young people who have become victims of schizophrenia and other forms of mental illness, losing touch with reality to one degree or another. We understand far too little of the human brain, and what can happen to it during these vulnerable years. But to say that premeditation proves sanity is a serious fallacy, as obsession, compulsion and paranoia are often hallmarks of these conditions. Imagine a young person you care about doing something horrific during a psychotic break. How could they live with it when â&#x20AC;&#x153;sane?â&#x20AC;? How could you? A wise First Nations elder told his grandson that we humans have two wolves in our heartsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;love and anger. The one we feed determines who we are. We have a choice when such unpredictable tragedies as the Aurora shooting happenâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;a choice to â&#x20AC;&#x153;feedâ&#x20AC;? our compassion or our fear. Let us choose, so far as we are able, to live from compassion, and to extend that compassion even to the fearful side of our own humanity. Rev. Linda Weaver Horton is with the Unitarian Fellowship of Kelowna.

WFN was seeking concessions from those workers including $4 per hour wage cuts, reductions to vacation and sick time, cuts to benefits and the elimination of pensions for new hires. Louie said that concessions were needed because Pine Acres was losing money â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been operating the facility since 1983 and funding the operational costs. The last fiscal year, it was close to $1 million that we put into (Pine Acres) of WFNâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own money,â&#x20AC;? said Louie. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It comes to a point where itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still a business. As a business, we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t continue to fund an operation thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s costing us money every yearâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;there had to be some cutbacks.â&#x20AC;?

WESTBANK First Nation and the B.C. Government and Service Employeesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Union reached a consensus Wednesday on their collective bargaining agreement. said Louie. The WFN chief said that the new agreement puts WFN in a break-even position. Louie added that the band is committed to putting over $1 million into capital improvements to bring the Pine Acres building up to standards. Pine Acresâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; future could have been a lot worse if an agreement wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t reached. According to Louie, an ultimatum was given to the BCGEU. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The final offer was basically, either accept the proposal that we have, or we will have no other choice but to terminate and shut down Pine Acres,â&#x20AC;? Louie said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had a date of Aug. 1 that had to be met. That date was very firmâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;there was no bluff whatsoever in that proposal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Once that was understood, we had a little bit of give and take, but we were able to then reach an agreement.

Is it better Seeking out what makes kids happy to be fit and fat than seated and skinny? A n apple a day may keep the doctor away, but it’s better if you eat it standing up. I know, I know. You’re probably thinking: ‘Here goes Norm again, writing about the need to stay fit to help reduce the strain on our health care system.’ But it’s true. The more you and your family stay active the greater your chances of staying physically and mentally healthy. That’s not only good for you, but frees up limited medical resources to look after the injured, chronically ill, frail in care, and so many others. Are you fighting a little weight problem? Research from Dr. Steven Blair, of the University of South Norm Letnick Carolina, shows that being inactive actually carries more health risks than carrying a few extra pounds. In a recent article published in the BC Medical Journal, Dr. James Richardson says that the “fit fat” have lower health risks than the “sedentary skinny.” The number of calories we consume has remained quite stable over the years. It’s our level of activity that has dropped—like me sitting here writing this on my computer. Dr. Blair’s research concludes that increasing activity lowers mortality, regardless of your body mass index. In other words, your weight scale isn’t necessarily the best tool to help you stay healthy, but a clock—to measure time spent being active—might be. This is far more important than just looking better in swimsuits. If we do not successfully tackle these issues, we can expect rising numbers of people with diabetes, heart disease, stroke, cancer, arthritis and chronic respiratory disease. That sounds dire, so here’s the good news: All these diseases can be prevented or at least delayed. And while this will always come down to personal choice, government can play a role. That’s why our government invested in a smoking cessation program, and why we are encouraging British Columbians to make healthy diet choices with our sodium sense tool and informed dining programs. Our Healthy Start initiative supports all women and families with young children in B.C. in receiving care needed for optimal health, as well as provides additional supports to young, low-income, first time pregnant women and their children. These things make a huge difference. If each British Columbian exercised 30 minutes a day, achieved and maintained a healthy weight, followed a healthy pattern of eating as recommended in Eating Well with Canada’s Food Guide, and refrained from smoking, we could reduce our risk for most chronic diseases by up to 80 per cent. If all British Columbians had a healthy weight, were physically active, and didn’t smoke, the province could avoid over $3.8 billion in economic and health care costs each year. So, of course, do your best to quit smoking, eat healthy foods (especially those grown by local farmers), and have the discipline to drink water instead of pop, diet or not. But no matter how big you are, 30 minutes a day, five days per week, of moderate or stronger aerobic activity will do your body a world of good, keep you around longer to be with your family—and yes, make it easier for taxpayers to sustain and improve publiclyfunded health care. Norm Letnick is the Liberal MLA for Kelowna-Lake Country and chair of the Select Standing Committee on Health.

UBC Okanagan undergraduate student Tim Krupa wants to understand what makes children happy, so he trekked across the world to Zambia to seek answers. “I first went to Zambia in 2011 to develop school soccer clubs for youth, which was a project supported by the Irving K. Barber International Education Travel Subsidy,” said Krupa, who lives in Kelowna. “The children I worked with were unbelievably playful and jubilant. “So much of what we hear about Africa is focused on the people’s struggles—famine, disease, war, and poverty. “Working in such an impoverished area, I expected to see a lot of sadness, but, at least superficially, all I observed was happiness and a positive outlook.” After returning to UBC Okanagan, Krupa approached associate professor of psychology Mark Holder, whose research focuses on the science of happiness. He asked Holder to mentor him for a research project examining the determinants and barriers to psychological well-being in Zambian children. “We want to know if children in Zambia are as happy as children in Canada, and how much of their well-being is influenced by factors such as disease, poverty, hunger or spirituality,” said Krupa, a fourth-year bachelor of science student with a concentration in biology, chemistry and biochemistry. “Much of psychology and neuroscience traditionally focuses on diagnosing what’s wrong with us and how can we fix that. “Dr. Holder and I are interested in learning more about what’s right with us, and how we can promote it. This expanding field is known as positive psychology.” Krupa received an Irving K. Barber Undergraduate Research Award to support his project with Holder, and returned to Zambia this summer with fellow UBCO science student Alexa Geddes to compile data. From early May to early June, Krupa and Geddes conducted a 45-item survey with 1,329 Zambian children, ages 7 to 19, from six different schools and three different prov-

The survey was designed to measure three characteristics—happiness, life satisfaction and hope. Their study considered a number of variables, including personal and family health/illness, wealth, hunger, religious practices and spirituality, education, social connectivity and nature connectivity. “We’d spend all morning in classrooms doing the survey and all afternoon playing soccer, which was fascinating because it enabled us to see how the school soccer clubs that originated in the previous year had evolved,” said Krupa. “The girls are now playing, which is wonderful. “It was important to

me that we didn’t simply leave with data. We wanted to build relationships, encourage hard work and gender equality through sport, and give something back to the children on top of increasing our empirical knowledge of this severely understudied population.” Krupa recalls the Zambian children always wanting to play soccer. “It didn’t matter if it was 40 degrees outside and we were playing barefoot on hot gravel and sand. They were always excited to play. Their attitudes were so memorable for me.” Krupa hopes his research will lead to interventions, policy, or program development that

‘‘ WE WANT TO KNOW IF CHILDREN IN ZAMBIA ARE AS HAPPY AS CHILDREN IN CANADA, AND HOW MUCH OF THEIR WELL-BEING IS INFLUENCED BY FACTORS SUCH AS DISEASE, POVERTY, HUNGER OR SPIRITUALITY. Tim Krupa could support and pro-

mote well-being for children not only in Zambia, but across cultures and continents. “We actually don’t know that much about what makes children happy, especially in low-resource nations. There has been some research into children’s happiness in Canada, so it will be very interesting to see if the data we collected from Zambian children is consistent with that of Canadian children.” Krupa is currently in the data-analysis stage of the research investigation. He has been invited to present his research findings this October at the Canadian Conference on Global Health being held in Ottawa.

Trixie came from Dog Control, so her history is unknown. We have found her to be a fun loving bundle of energy, she enjoys long walks, playtime with her toys and needs lots of exercise to keep her happy and healthy. She would fit well in a home with experienced guardians and a fully fenced yard. She does have some anxiety issues and does not like to be left alone. Came in from Dog Control

Fancy is a very inquisitive cat. She loves to follow people around the room and ‘help out’. She is somewhat on the independent side, loves to lounge and observe her world, and being a mellow girl, she would do well with first time cat owners or children. She will make a wonderful companion for a family and she can interact with. Please come down and ask for an introduction. Came in as a stray

At certain points in the day, your vehicle can get up to 60+ Celsius, add on a few pounds of fur and your dog is on the fast track to death. Dogs and cats pant to release heat through their paws, which keeps them cool, but in the warmth of your car, this is not possible. So, leave your pet at home and your perky pooch will thank you!

If you see a dog in a car on a hot day that you believe may be in trouble, call your local SPCA, animal shelter, or police immediately.

7 YEARS ROTTI/GERM SHEP X NEUTERED MALE

Zep’s owners could no longer care for him. He would be better suited to a home with older children. We believe he would make a good family dog with people who have had experience with a large breed. He requires a lot of exercise or he will become bored and possibly destructive. He will give you many years of love, laughter and loyalty, if you are willing to give him a ‘second chance’. Come and meet him in our backyard. Owner surrender

Smokey was found under a dumpster hiding from a big storm. Kind people took him in, but their resident cat picked on him too much and he got pretty stressed out. Hence he is at the shelter looking for his ‘forever home’. He will make a wonderful companion, as he comes to people right away and loves to have attention lavished on him. He would be OK with another accepting feline and children. Abandoned

Goliath has turned out to be a very friendly guy. He is a bit overwhelmed and stressed with his surroundings at the moment, but we know that he has lived with another cat. He will make a wonderful family cat, as he loves to give affection and follow you around. He has some playful spurts and certainly knows how to make the staff laugh. If you would like to meet him, please come down to the shelter. Abandoned

No one ever claimed Tasha and she is looking for her permanent loving home. We have observed her playing with toys and enjoying the backyard. She will need leash and obedience training, but is smart and quick to learn. She wants to please and prefers company instead of being alone. If you feel she would fit into your home, please come down and spend some time with her. Transferred from Dog Control

CUISINE from Jude’s kitchen pick fresh & local It’s mid-summer and there’s an array of fresh, local fruits and vegetables, along with a surprisingly local fish: sockeye salmon from Osoyoos Lake, the result of a record run of the iconic coastal B.C. seafood up the Columbia River this year and into the Okanagan. So, I had to do a little experimenting with it. Salmon and the barbecue are a natural combination, so the only question left is what else is fresh and in season locally that we should combine with it. Asian flavours are quite wonderful with the full-flavoured B.C. salmon, especially sockeye, whether that’s maple and soy sauce, ginger and garlic or black beans and green onions. I chose the latter and added fresh nectarines, but I will try peaches next time. It was an exciting combination of sweet and tart, spicy and salty and perfect against the rich background of the silky salmon. I love fresh fruit in salads too, so whatever’s in season usually ends up amongst the greens: try it; you’ll like it. Farmer’s markets throughout the Central Okanagan feature an amazing array of local produce now, so take advantage of this sumptious season and fill your basket, bag, fridge, table and tummy with all you can while it’s at its best. Then can, freeze, preserve or dry what you can’t eat. There’s lots happening around the valley at this time of year too, so get out and enjoy some fine eats. See you next Sunday at Matt and Molly Thurston’s Claremont Ranch Organics in Lake Country for the fourth annual Okanagan Feast of Fields celebrating all that’s fresh and local. Also upcoming is an opportunity to enjoy fine food from five fantastic Okanagan chefs in an idyllic setting and help raise funds for the Okanagan Symphony Orchestra. Live music and impressive auction items are sure to entertain you as you wine and dine. This Feast in the Vineyard is at CedarCreek Estate Winery with some of my favourite chefs: Corked Cook Geoffrey Couper; Jesse Croy of Summerhill; Matt Batey of Mission Hill; Bernard Casavant of Manteo and, of course, CedarCreek’s Chris Thomas Aug. 9. Get tickets from CedarCreek, at 764-8866, ext. 102. You could also pick up a copy of my book, Jude’s Kitchen, now at local bookstores and wine shops, and enjoy some of the 200 recipes for fresh, local foods for breakfast, lunch, dinner or snacks. It’s organized by the seasons so you can be inspired by what’s freshest locally.

Blueberry Nectarine Salad with Sea Asparagus When local fruit is ripe, I like to try it in everything. We found the tart sweetness of these fruits were wonderful with the bits of crunchy, salty sea asparagus. It’s available from Buy the Sea in West Kelowna. With the addition of a crumbled feta or blue cheese, this would serve as a lunch salad. 4 c. (1 l) fresh, local salad greens 1/2 c. (125 ml) chopped cucumber 1 fresh, local nectarine or peach 1 c. (250 ml) fresh, local blueberries handful of fresh sea asparagus

handful of toasted pine nuts Wash and dry a mix of fresh, local salad greens and tear them into a salad bowl. Chop cucumber and nectarine or peach on top. Add blueberries, sea asparagus and pine nuts. Dress with a light vinaigrette such as a raspberry balsamic or simple oil and vinegar or lemon and oil. Serves 2-3.

JUDIE STEEVES / CAPITAL NEWS

Peachy Salmon with Ginger Nectarines and peaches definitely have a place alongside the entree as well as for dessert. They added a luscious touch to this Asian-inspired sockeye salmon, which paired excellently with the 2011 Mission Hill Family Estate Five Vineyards Pinot Grigio, with its fresh fruit and complex spicy notes. But, I’m thinking a viognier might also be good with it. 10 oz. ( 300 g) salmon fillet

MARINADE: 1 tbsp. (15 ml) minced fresh ginger 2 garlic cloves 2 green onions 1 tbsp. (15 ml) soy sauce 1 tbsp. (15 ml) dried preserved black beans 1 tsp. (5 ml) lemon juice 1 tsp. (5 ml) honey 1 peach or nectarine

remaining slivers of green onion Lay salmon in a shallow oven-proof glass dish, then prepare the marinade. Mince the ginger, garlic and all of the green onions except a couple of inches, which should be slivered to garnish the finished dish. Combine with the soy sauce, black beans, lemon juice and honey and spread over both sides of the salmon, ending up with the skin side down. Refrigerate for an hour or so. Pre-heat barbecue to high heat or oven to 400 F. Slice the peach or nectarine and arrange it down the top of the fillet. Roast uncovered or grill with the lid down for about 10 minutes per inch of thickness, 15 minutes or so, or until the centre is just opaque. Scatter the slivers of green onion over the top and serve. Serves 2.

Some simple guidelines for readers of Jude's Kitchen There are some basics about my cooking that you should know about in using the recipes created for Jude’s Kitchen. *I mean a large egg when a recipe calls for an egg *usually, butter and margarine are interchangeable *usually, salt and pepper is added to your taste *I generally use sea salt

*fresh ingredients top frozen or canned *organic products are my first choice *wherever possible, I use whole grains, not processed *include a variety of them, when possible *wherever possible, I use fresh herbs *fewer quantities of dried herbs are needed than fresh

*I use extra virgin olive oil *I use grapeseed or olive oil to cook with *I don’t deep fry *feel free to substitute. I do *have fun in the kitchen *encourage others to as well
