STEPFATHER GUILTY OF PIMPING TEEN Kristi Patton

Western News Staff

Guilty is the verdict for a Penticton man accused of sexually assaulting and pimping out his teenage stepdaughter. “Surprise, surprise, surprise,” said the clearly agitated 47-year-old man from the prisoner’s box before the judge even ¿nished speaking. The man, who cannot be identi¿ed because of a publication ban to protect the teenage girl, was found guilty of three counts of sexual assault, sexual interference of a person under 14, sexual interference of a person under 16, two counts of living on the avails of prostitution of a person under 18, sexual exploitation, parent of guardian procuring sexual activity and aiding a person to engage in prostitution. The girl, who is now 18, said the sexual abuse from her stepfather started around 2006 when she was just 12 years old while they lived in Osoyoos, and carried on while they lived in Okanagan Falls and then later in Penticton.

But she said it was when they moved to Surrey for about six months that her stepfather forced her into prostitution, with it continuing when they moved back to Penticton in 2011. She said her stepfather would pick her up from school and take her to the Soupateria at lunch, where they set up business at the bus stop, he selling drugs and her prostituting and occasionally selling marijuana. The man had vehemently denied all the charges, saying while he knew of the prostitution, he felt he could do nothing to stop it because she was going to do what she wanted. In the closing arguments heard on Wednesday, defence for the man said his client was more credible than the girl, who he called a liar. This was mainly based on the girl’s testimony that conÀicted with the statement she provided police last July, when the girl said she was working on her own. Crown counsel Wendy Kavanagh brushed that off as meaningless, stating the girl was still under duress and confused because she did not want her stepfather to get in trouble

and was scared of him. Judge Gregory Korturbash agreed with the Crown, stating although the girl admitted she lied to police, he found her testimony credible as it corroborated that of other Crown witnesses. The stepfather testi¿ed that he was best friends with the girl, and at least one other witness, who admitted to being a client of the girl, also noted a best friend-type of relationship between the pair. “I accept that in a perverse way that (the stepfather and girl) were in fact best of friends,” said Korturbash, who also described the relationship as a parasitic one. Korturbash said he did not believe the girl was involved in the sex trade of her own volition and believed that she was under threats from the stepfather to earn money for his drug habit. “He was the mastermind behind the plan. He set the cost, told her how to protect herself, threatened her if she didn’t do it and set up the dates,” said Korturbash. Kavanagh said the accused and the other

defence witness, the man’s wife who said she had never seen anything inappropriate between the pair, had motive to lie. She added the couple also had opportunity for collusion through phone calls while the man was in jail, in which they admitted they spoke of the trial during these exchanges. The judge agreed, using the example of the wife going into detail of how soundproof their Osoyoos cinder-block home was, then later in testimony bringing up how it would be impossible for anyone to hear sexual noises coming from a bedroom the girl had been in with her stepfather. Sounds that the woman’s own son testi¿ed he heard, but she dismissed. Korturbash said there was a “bias” in the wife’s statements in court that “clearly compromised her testimony.” A date for the man’s sentencing was not available by deadline. An application to vary the man’s terms of release so he could have contact with the teen girl’s mother will also be put before the courts. “Perhaps the two of them deserve each other,” said Korturbash.

Man’s ‘curiosity’ for child porn brings jail term Kristi Patton Western News Staff

A Penticton man was sentenced to 90 days in jail for possession of child pornography. Barry Dickson, 61, said his curiosity got the better of him, tempting him to download child pornography images and a graphic novel depicting child pornography. “This is a case, I would say, of curiosity killing the cat,” said Judge Gale Sinclair during the sentencing on Tuesday. In 2009, an investigation was launched by the B.C. RCMP Integrated Child Exploitation team after an agency out of Germany alerted them of a provider in Canada supplying child pornography from a peer-to-peer ¿le sharing network. Mounties raided Dickson’s home in May 2010, where two computers and a number of media storage devices were seized.

The court heard Dickson admitted to RCMP that they would ¿nd a lot of strange stuff because he “likes strange porn stuff, like snuff.” At the time, he told police he was not a pedophile, rather he was just curious and was deleting the images after he viewed them. During the investigation, RCMP found Dickson was using a program called Evidence Eliminate to erase the ¿les, but remnants of the ¿les and the man’s search terms were found with RCMP forensic software. Crown counsel Catherine Crockett said one hard drive RCMP found had 806 unique images classi¿ed as child pornography by the Criminal Code, 53 images of child nudity that do not meet the code de¿nition, 106 photos of clothed children posing surreptitiously, 4,065 adult porn images and 31 images displaying bestiality. “I have seen worse that were bondage ... but these are some of the worst you can see, given the young age,” said Crockett.

Search terms were also recovered that revealed Dickson was looking for images that involved babies and toddlers under two years. “This is not a victimless crime,” said Crockett, who has prosecuted similar cases. “I can’t tell you how many times I have seen the same pictures. They are sort of traded around like baseball cards, and this will never end for these kids.” Crockett told the court that Canada is second only to the U.S. in countries that are involved as hosts of these types of images. She said RCMP know that at least 2,400 people in B.C. are involved in this type of ¿le sharing, including 27 in Penticton and 126 in Kelowna. “That is just what RCMP are able to monitor. The actual numbers are signi¿cantly higher,” said Crockett, who was asking for a six-month sentence and three years probation for Dickson. Defence counsel Clarke Burnett said his client wasn’t aware the graphic novel was illegal to

possess, and the pre-sentence report found Dickson was a low risk of sexual recidivism. “To this day he struggles with why curiosity got to him and why he was drawn back to look,” said Burnett. “He is ashamed and embarrassed.” “You should be,” responded Judge Sinclair. Dickson received 90 days with three years probation, to be served intermittently on weekends starting Sept. 7. A number of conditions were also imposed on Dickson, who is not to possess or use any device to access the Internet except in the workplace, allow any peace of¿cer or probation of¿cer to access his residence to look at any devices, have no contact with persons under 18, advise any person he is dating or living with of the conviction, and not to be present in a public park, swimming area, daycare, playground or community centre where a person under 18 may be. Dickson will also be on the sex offender registry for 10 years.

Moving day is probably still a few years down the road, but the Osoyoos Museum Society now has what it needs to seek grant money for improvements to its future home. Osoyoos-area voters agreed last June to spend $1.2 million to purchase the Home Hardware Building Centre site on Main Street with an eye to moving the Osoyoos Museum there from its current home in an old curling rink. As the senior government in the area, the Regional District of Okanagan-Similkameen made the purchase with borrowed money that residents in both the town and Area A will pay back through a special tax levy. After the deal closed, the RDOS signed a ¿veyear lease with Home Hardware, and money from that arrangement is being placed in a special reserve fund that will be used for capital improvements to the Main Street property after the retailer leaves for a site it purchased in an industrial area near the airport. Last week, the RDOS board approved a letter of understanding with the Osoyoos Museum Society that spells out the two parties’ relationship and cements the plan to eventually lease the site to the society. That’s important, because it’s a sort of proof of ownership that will allow the society to seek grant money to improve the property, explained president Mat Hassen. The building centre did not return a call for comment, but Hassen said it’s expected Home Hardware will stay on Main Street for two to three years while its head of¿ce decides on a timeline for construction at the new site. Hassen is expecting a decision this fall or early next year.

New warnings surface at Skaha beach Kristi Patton Western News Staff

Safety precautions have been stepped up along the Okanagan River Channel and Skaha Lake in light of a girl drowning two weeks ago. The City of Penticton, which leases the beach area where the girl had drowned from a Penticton Indian Band member, added additional signage near the hazardous waterway and near the exit point of the river channel. “We felt it was important to act without delay and be proactive in protecting the public,” said Simone Blais, communications of¿cer with the City of Penticton. Signs have been put up indicating the area west of where the river channel releases into Skaha Lake is a no swimming area, and a snow fence was extended from an existing fence across the beach where the drowning happened to dissuade people from entering the water. Blais said although it isn’t within the city jurisdiction, they felt it was important to place signs as Àoaters approach the exit staircase at the bottom of the channel to advise them to exit the water there. A sign was also placed at the bridge indicating to those on the channel they are not to go under it and into the lake. Blais said discussion has

SWIMMERS IGNORE warning signs and fences set up on a section of beach on Skaha Lake near the site where a girl drowned recently. The City of Penticton added more signs and the fence as a way to keep the public away from the area near the exit of the channel.

surfaced on enforcement on the river channel during their ongoing review of safety standards. “That is a big challenge when you start talking about the river channel because it is a multi-jurisdictional area and the issues it poses with being a water entity,” said Blais. “There is an element that doesn’t necessarily

abide by the rules, so the questions we are asking is what can we do. We are discussing river channel safety and all the elements, be that enforcement with the RCMP and having discussions with the stakeholders. We want the public to be safe when they are here enjoying the area.” Findings compiled by the B.C.

Coroners Service show the highest proportion of accidental drownings occur in the Okanagan, Kootenays and Kamloops area. A study from 2006 to 2010 found about one-seventh of the 404 accidental drownings in the province involved non-residents to the area. On July 29, a 12-year-old Kam-

loops area girl drowned in Skaha Lake in Penticton while swimming and playing in an area marked off by buoys cautioning boaters of a sandbar and swimmers to stay clear. Emergency Management B.C. said because of the weather the province had earlier in the summer, all waterways pose a danger. “Touring the Interior region of the province recently, I have never seen such high water levels and Àow rates at this time of year,” said Chris Duggy, executive director for Emergency Management B.C. Penticton Fire Department Chief Wayne Williams said people are still not treating the water with respect, especially the Okanagan River Channel. “People are still tying their Àoating devices together and that is a bad thing, especially when they hit the pillars of the bridges, because the water is pushing them down either side of it and they are stuck there because of the rope,” said Williams. “People can fall out or Àip over, and the channel is still running fairly good, maybe not as fast as a few weeks ago, but it is still fast.” A recent report from the Lifesaving Society of B.C. and Yukon pointed out the two major reasons victims drown is that they were not wearing a personal Àotation device, followed by an inability to swim.

District sees double the average of troubled students Joe Fries Western News Staff

Troubled kids represented a sizable portion of the student population and generated a signi¿cant amount of supplementary funding for local schools last year. Some 288 kids in the Okanagan Skaha School District, about 4.6 per cent of the student body, had one of the two designations that can be applied to learners with behaviour or mental-health issues. Students who display aggression or hyperactivity and have a “very disruptive” effect in the classroom can be designated as requiring “moderate” support, according to a policy manual produced by the B.C. Ministry of Education. More serious cases are deemed to require “intensive” intervention when students demonstrate “extremely disruptive” behaviours and may present a “serious risk” to themselves and others, and who are also in contact with outside agencies like youth corrections. Diagnosed mental-health issues are similarly categorized. As of Sept. 30, 2011, 157 students had a “moderate” designation, while another 131 ¿t the “intensive” criteria, according to ¿gures obtained from the Okanagan Skaha School District through a freedom of information request. Kids who present a risk to themselves and others are typically placed in an alternate education program where they receive

“more structured support,” said Pam Butters, the district administrator responsible for special education. She also noted that an individual education plan must be completed by all kids with designations, which are reviewed twice annually and can be modi¿ed or lifted. Designations are applied by psychologists in consultation with parents and school staff, and are meant to identify kids who need extra help, she explained. The “intensive” designations also qualify the district for supplemental funding from the province, which totalled $1.4 million last year. While the policy manual states that students with “intensive” designations are “expected to be less than one per cent of the student population provincewide,” the local ¿gure stood at 2.5 per cent last year. Provincewide, the ¿gure was 1.2 per cent, unchanged from 2007-08, according to data provided by the ministry, which expects variations at the district level due to the composition and size of different student populations. Butters said the provincial guideline isn’t a cap, but she is asked every year by the ministry to justify her numbers. Superintendent Wendy Hyer said her district is simply better and quicker at identifying troubled students than others are. At her previous posting in Merritt, a psychologist had to be hired on a short-term contract, which meant waits of up to two years for a designation, Hyer said, a lag that’s closer to two months in this district, which has four such experts on staff.

B.C. Teachers’ Federation president Susan Lambert said any ¿nancial incentive for districts to over-designate is limited by two factors related to underfunding: a lack of experts and tightening of criteria. “It’s not something the ministry likes to see, these designations, in our view,” Lambert said. “And then once (students) are designated, there aren’t suf¿cient support systems in place to provide supports for those students.” A foster parent in a different South Okanagan school district said a boy came to her in 2011 with an “intensive” designation, and, “with a little stability we were able to get him off that list.” But other than an individual education plan, the designation “just put him in a separate, segregated class,” said the woman, who asked to remain anonymous to protect her and the boy’s safety. There also seemed to be a reluctance on the teacher’s part to have the boy’s designation lifted in order to protect the additional funding source, said the foster parent. “The teacher herself wanted to keep him on because she wanted the numbers for her program.” Butters said that as of this week, the total number of kids in her district with behaviour designations stood at 241, down from 308 in September 2008. All told, the district tentatively expects to receive a total of about $5.6 million in supplemental funding for special education next year, which would equal about 10 per cent of its total operating budget.

Stalled development gives council pause in approving variance Steve Kidd Western News Staff

A proposed new development by Paul Singla has been sent back to the drawing board, after becoming a subject for debate by Penticton council on Monday. At issue was a variance that would have reduced the distance between the planned threestorey apartment building at 245 Edmonton Ave. and its neighbours, but controversy arose when Coun. Helena Konanz proposed that council withhold approval until Singla Bros. Holdings

restarts work on another project. “I personally would like it to be sent back to staff until that same developer starts using his crane on Winnipeg Street,” said Konanz. Singla Bros. are the developers behind the multi-unit building on Winnipeg Street, where work has been stalled since 2008. Anthony Haddad, director of development services, said they are in the ¿nal stages of consultation with the developers to get work started again on that property. “As soon as that property starts moving, I think that then we can start working on his next

project,” said Konanz. “He needs to focus on that development on Winnipeg and get that going.” However, Haddad explained that council had limited powers to hinder the Edmonton Street project. Council could only refer it back to staff for reasons related to the speci¿c proposal, he said, not for reasons related to another property. Without stating his reasons, Coun. Andrew Jakubeit simply moved that council table the item for 30 days, immediately seconded by Konanz. “I am a little apprehensive of the reason, to

be very honest with you folks, especially after what Coun. Konanz brought up. But that is a decision you will be faced with as councillors,” said Mayor Dan Ashton. “I think as a council … you better be very careful on what you are trying to do and how you are trying to do it.” The motion to table failed, 4-2, but a later motion from Coun. John Vassilaki to have staff consult further with staff on the building design, passed, resulting in the same effect. “Thirty days type of thing?” asked Jakubeit as he seconded the motion, which passed with only Litke and Ashton opposed.

Festival attendance falls short Joe Fries Western News Staff

Attendance at the inaugural Rock the Peach music festival was barely a third of what organizers expected and some suppliers have been left holding the bag as a result. Six creditors are owed a total of about $100,000 and have been asked for a 90-day grace period on payment after some of their cheques bounced, con¿rmed promoter Willi Jahnke. “We’re pretty much restructuring here but we’re not running away,” he said, “and we want to stay and we want to make it work.” Jahnke said he’s the president of iRock Entertainment Inc., which produced the event at Kings Park in Penticton with $400,000 of its own money. The July 27-29 festival featured headliners like Collective Soul and Sam Roberts Band. But a stormy Friday night got Rock the Peach off to a bumpy start from which it never recovered, Jahnke said. A total of 1,904 people walked through the gate that night, according to numbers he provided, and attendance declined on each of the following days for a three-day total of 4,865. Organizers expected total attendance in the range of 14,000. “Besides the attendance, the show was really well done,” Jahnke said. The event also seemed to please the City of Penticton, which en-

gaged in a “collaborative process” with neighbours prior to the event, said communications of¿cer Simone Blais. She said city staff met with area residents in May and then worked to address their stated concerns about security, litter and parking. A total of 15 vehicles were towed over the three days from residential-parkingonly areas around Kings Park. Still, Blais said the city received “really positive reports” from festival-goers and “it seems like we’ve addressed most of the residents’ concerns.” The promoter paid up front for use of the park, as required by the city on all its leases, Blais added. Jahnke said the company will now talk things over with the city before deciding whether it will try to Rock the Peach again next year, but he still sees potential here: “New kids on the block are always taken with caution, especially as Penticton didn’t have a positive track record

when it comes to festivals.” Data collected from ticket buyers showed about 60 per cent of the audience came from outside the region, Jahnke said, and he thinks that ¿gure could go higher. “It’s just a matter or tapping into that and proving to people this is really a festival worth coming to.” Organizers also noted complaints about high prices and found most people preferred single-day passes. Grouping artists of similar genres together on the same day could grow that segment, Jahnke said, and would avoid a repeat of the disparate Sunday lineup, which featured 1980s rockers Glass Tiger, followed by Spanish guitarist Jesse Cook and country singer Ronnie Dunn. “Will there be adjustments? Absolutely. There has to be,” he said. Jahnke also produced through a different company the Nakusp Music Fest, which ended an eight-year run with its last show in 2011.

Process could reshape downtown Steve Kidd Western News Staff

Many interesting ideas came out of the Vibrant Penticton design charrette last week, adding up to some possible major changes in how Pentictonites see and use the city’s downtown. That includes everything from far-reaching concepts like closing the tip of Main Street to vehicle traf¿c — creating a connection and pedestrian space between Gyro and Cenotaph parks — to creating a space for a year-round public market. All last week, designers, facilitators and city staff worked alongside about 50 stakeholders to develop ideas for revitalizing downtown. After initial discussion, the team identi¿ed four key layers that should be considered in the plan framework — mobility, green, use and form, and character — as well as seven areas of downtown with a unique feel: civic, downtown, uptown, north park, south park, cultural and entertainment. In contrast to previous attempts to create a revitalization plan for downtown, the design charrette developed some concepts that could be accomplished quickly, along with long-range goals. That, said Coun. Gary Litke, gave him con-

I am just as excited about those quick items that we can do now as I am about the longer-term items. — Nick Bevanda

Âżdence that a workable plan would be developed this time. “There have been a number of studies done and they are gathering dust on the shelves someplace,â€? said Litke. “But I am conÂżdent through this process that there are a number of opportunities for low hanging fruit.â€? “It is that low hanging fruit that we can easily implement now,â€? said architect Nick Bevanda, cochair of the downtown revitalization committee. “I am just as excited about those quick items that we can do now as I am about the longer-term items.â€? Another key concept that came out of the charrette, according to Anthony Haddad, the city’s director of development services, is that of rebuilding. “Time and time again we heard that these are the type of things

the community wants back in the downtown,â€? he said, with a list that includes a grocery store, hotel, nightclubs, performing arts theatre, dry cleaner and other amenities. “How do we attract these uses that have gone missing over the last few years?â€? Haddad asked. “One of the interesting things about these properties that have now gone vacant is that we have achieved a lot of surface parking lots.â€? Haddad said only about 30 per cent of the downtown is covered by buildings. The remainder is either vacant, parking lots, roads or sidewalks. “There is lots of opportunity for us to build on. Over 50 per cent of the downtown land is available for future activity,â€? said Haddad. Co-chair Barb Haynes cautioned that though the charrette generated a lot of ideas, they are still in the planning stage. “I don’t think, through this process, that we are Âżnished at this point. We have a fabulous foundation and launching point to move forward,â€? said Haynes. The next step for the committee is to develop a concrete plan from the information gathered and ideas generated she said, returning it to the public for input in a few months.

EDITORIAL

Dog days of summer carry a risk to pets

T

he sun is shining, the smell of barbecues waft through the air, the cooling waters of Okanagan lakes beckon, and the streets are ¿lled with residents and tourists on their way to one of any number of festival and events the area has to offer. What could be better than summer in the Peach City? With Penticton now squarely in the grips of Peachfest, the lure to get out and about is irresistible. But don’t let the temptation to enjoy all the Okanagan has to offer put your best friend at risk. The South Okanagan SPCA is concerned with the growing number of reports it has been receiving of dogs left unattended in vehicles. The Okanagan sun can send the temperature inside a vehicle to 40 C in just a few minutes. Dogs can withstand high temperatures for only a very short time before suffering irreparable brain damage or even death. That quick trip to the store can carry a high cost. “Dogs can die after just 10 minutes in a hot car,” said Craig Naherniak, humane education general manager with the B.C. SPCA. “It’s much kinder and far safer to leave your friend in a cool environment.” If you observe a dog inside a vehicle, the SPCA advises you to inform the owner without being confrontational. If the owner cannot be located, call the RCMP or SPCA and provide as many details as possible. But vehicles aren’t the only summertime risk to a dog’s health. Use caution when running, cycling or rollerblading with your pet, as these activities can pose a serious health threat to dogs. The SPCA advises owners to exercise their dogs during cooler times of the day, take plenty of breaks and carry a container from which your dog can drink. Soft trails are also better than cement or asphalt, which can burn your pet’s foot pads. Just a few simple precautions can ensure that our summer fun doesn’t come at the expense of our four-legged friends.

New cold war takes shape in Arctic Russian television contacted me last night asking me to go on a program about the race for Arctic resources. The ice is melting fast, and it was all the usual stuff about how there will be big strategic conÀicts over the seabed resources — especially oil and gas — that become accessible when it’s gone. The media always love conÀict, and now that the Cold War is long gone, there’s no other potential military confrontation between the great powers to worry about. Governments around the Arctic Ocean are bee¿ng up their armed forces for the coming struggle, so where are the Àashpoints and what are the strategies? It’s great fun to speculate about possible wars. In the end I didn’t do the interview because the Skype didn’t work, so I didn’t get the chance to rain on their parade. But here’s what I would said to the Russians if my server hadn’t gone down at the wrong time. There are three separate “resources” in the Arctic. On the surface, there are the sea lanes that are opening up to commercial traf¿c along the northern coasts of Russia and Canada. Under the seabed, there are potential oil and gas deposits that can be drilled once the ice retreats. And in the water in between, there is the planet’s last un¿shed ocean.

Gwynne Dyer

Dyer Straits The sea lanes are mainly a Canadian obsession, because the government believes that the North-West Passage that weaves between Canada’s Arctic islands will become a major commercial artery when the ice is gone. Practically every summer Prime Minister Stephen Harper travels north to declare his determination to defend Canada’s Arctic sovereignty from — well, it’s not clear from exactly whom, but it’s a great photo-op. Canada is getting new Arctic patrol vessels and building a deep-water naval port and Arctic warfare training centre in the region, but it’s all much ado about nothing. The Arctic Ocean will increasingly be used as a shortcut between the North Atlantic and the North Paci¿c, but the shipping will not go through Cana-

dian waters. Russia’s “Northern Sea Route” will get the traf¿c, because it’s already open and much safer to navigate. Then there’s the hydrocarbon deposits under the Arctic seabed, which the U.S. Geological Survey has forecast may contain almost one-fourth of the world’s remaining oil and gas resources. But from a military point of view, there’s only a problem if there is some disagreement about the seabed boundaries. There are only four areas where the boundaries are disputed. Two are between Canada and its eastern and western neighbours in Alaska and Greenland, but there is zero likelihood of a war between Canada and the United States or Denmark (which is responsible for Greenland’s defence). In the Bering Strait, there is a treaty de¿ning the seabed boundary between the United States and Russia, signed in the dying days of the Soviet Union, but the Russian Duma has refused to ratify it. However, the legal uncertainty caused by the dispute is likelier to deter future investment in drilling there than to lead to war. And then there was the seabed boundary dispute between Norway and Russia in the Barents Sea, which led Norway to double the size of its navy over the past decade. But last year the

two countries signed an agreement dividing the disputed area right down the middle and providing for joint exploitation of its resources. So no war between NATO (of which Norway is a member) and the Russian Federation. Which leaves the ¿sh, and it’s hard to have a war over ¿sh. The danger is rather that the world’s ¿shing Àeets will crowd in and clean the ¿sh out, as they are currently doing in the Southern Ocean around Antarctica. If the countries with Arctic coastlines want to preserve this resource, they can only do so by creating an international body to regulate the ¿shing. And they will have to let other countries ¿sh there too, with agreed catch limits, since it is mostly international waters. They will be driven to cooperate, in their own interests. So no war over the Arctic. All we have to worry about now is the fact that the ice is melting, which will speed global warming (because open water absorbs far more heat from the sun than highly reÀective ice), and ultimately melt the Greenland icecap and raise sea levels worldwide by seven metres. But that’s a problem for another day. Gwynne Dyer is a Londonbased independent journalist whose articles are published in 45 countries.

Bringing culture on stream Many plans for downtown have been created over the years, but not all have resulted in action. One such study was the “Cultural Tourism District Plan” prepared by CTQ consulting. It presented a plan to transform Ellis Street into a “cultural corridor”, anchored by the art gallery at the north end and the performing arts theatre at the south end. It included restoration of Penticton Creek and mixed use development overlooking the rushing water. The report was ¿rmly shelved by a previous council as being impractical at the time. Last week, a citizens’ charrette consisting of many community stakeholders, dedicated to improving and enriching our downtown core, put that vision back into the limelight. In fact, artist’s renderings of the proposed precinct elicited much excitement from participants. Ellis Street is a gem waiting to be discovered. Largely undeveloped, it commands a spectacular view of Okanagan Lake which must be preserved. Ellis connects colourful Front Street and features Penticton Creek which, in itself, has huge potential. In every great water city of the world, from Venice to Amsterdam, from San Antonio to Vancouver, development faces the water. But in Penticton, buildings still turn their backsides to Penticton Creek. The engineered concrete bottom of the creek is now becom-

Safety precautions needed

I am 14 years old and staying with my grandma for the summer. I had recently heard about 12-year-old Ida Lynn Marie HoltScherer drowning and I felt as if something had to be done. First, I want to give the HoltScherer family my condolences on their horrible loss, I am very sorry. Second, I wish to address the other girl who was swept away as well, but was saved by a bystander. This girl also happens to be Ida’s 14-year-old cousin. I know how you feel. I am 14 as well and I know life can suck, and that day was the worst of them all. I also know the you must feel as if it’s all your fault, but it is nowhere near true. You wanted to go back and ¿nd your cousin, but if that had happened you would have ended up the same way as your cousin. So be thankful that you get more time to live your life, and live it not just for yourself, but live it for your cousin. You must feel sad, angry, terri¿ed, guilty, and it’s OK to feel that way, but don’t let these feelings ruin your life. I let fear rule my life, but I saved myself before it was too late. Finally, I wish to address the matter of safety for locals and tourists. I may only be 14 and not a local, but when I heard the news that a girl had drowned, I started to think of all the possible preventions that could happen. My ¿rst thought was to close the channel because that is where I thought she had drowned. Then I found out where it actually had occurred and I thought why not put something at the end of the channel that prevents people from going past that point but still lets water pass through, or put a barrier at the end of the sand bar, which

ing structurally suspect, so attention will be required. As part of the necessary work, why not naturalize the creek bed, create linear parks along the water’s edge, and build a unique neighbourhood along its banks? The creation of a cultural neighbourhood around a restored creek would attract the rapidly growing cultural tourism industry, those individuals looking for enriching experiences accompanied by good food and wine. It would provide a natural home for artists and artisans, galleries and kiosks, for a hotbed of creativity. The charrette recognized and endorsed this vision, but also realized the need for incremental and practical progress. The ¿rst step will be to bring attention to Ellis by opening a Granville-style marketplace in the old bus barn and connect it to downtown with a pedestrian bridge across the creek. The downtown business association will take the lead, ensuring that it is ¿scally viable. Next will be street improvements and attention to the creek. The rest of the vision will follow. Congratulations to those who worked so hard on the charrette last week. Ellis Street was just one of many projects identi¿ed which will bring vibrancy to Penticton’s downtown. Coun. Garry Litke Penticton

was mentioned in the front-page article on Aug. 1 in the Penticton Western News. I do understand that my suggestions as well as this letter may be ignored, as I am just some moronic teenager, but at least someone has heard my thoughts. Kailey Gair Vancouver (Penticton tourist)

Business lends a hand

Thank you to the kind man at the Husky station on the corner of Channel Parkway and Fairview Road, who helped me out on a recent Friday afternoon. While driving down Channel Parkway, a vehicle a few cars in front of me lost two fully inÀated rubber rafts. The car in front of me ran over and deÀated one and the other one landed in the roadway beside me. I had no choice but to also run over the now partly deÀated raft. The raft appeared to be stuck under my van, but after pulling over and checking, I determined that it had wrapped around my front axel and I could not pull it out by myself. I drove into the Husky Station and asked for help. The very nicely dressed man behind the counter came out to the van and helped me extract the raft from around the axel. He then took it away to put in the garbage. It was a very hot day, I had my 92-year-old aunt and uncle in the van and it was wonderful to have such a cheerful, capable man respond to my request for help. I’ll be changing service stations and taking my business there, as my way of saying thanks. It’s so nice to ¿nd helpful people when we need them. One more reason why Penticton is “a place to stay forever”. Wendy Snideman Penticton

Faith restored

I haven’t been reading the letters or writing any for some time after my last experience, in which someone actually called me at home to call me names, as he didn’t agree with my opinion. I was starting to wonder about some of the folks that live here, as I am not a native Pentictonite. Well, my faith has been restored. A special kudos to Eva Durance, whose “Wildlife should be respected” letter hit the nail on the head. Sad to say Eva, I was a duck feeder (no longer, and long before your letter). You are correct though in noting that it is mostly our ignorance. Perhaps a Wildlife Tips pamphlet should be prepared for tourists as well as locals. Ron Evans and Cody Young — great letters. I hope it gets some people thinking and rethinking. After all, isn’t this forum made for that purpose? Gladys Kusmack Penticton

Cherry growers in the South Okanagan are being hit hard this year, ¿rst by rain, wind and sun, and now by low prices when they try to market their fruit. Some growers, like Jake Van Westen of Naramata, have stopped picking, abandoning the fruit to rot on the tree. With 60 acres of cherries in production, Van Westen estimates he has left 100,000 pounds on the trees. Westen said his fruit is of good quality and size, but overall sales through the co-op and their marketing arm, B.C. Tree Fruits, have been affected by lower quality fruit put into the system by growers farther south, whose early season production was hard hit by variable weather and storms. “Down south had a disastrous start, Oliver and Osoyoos, and since we belong to a co-op system, we are all stuck together,” he said. Right now, Van Westen said the co-op isn’t even able to estimate what price they will be able to get for cherries. “They don’t have a clue what’s going on. They have sold a lot of cherries and the buyers have complained, so there are claims and that is a bunch of negotiating,” he said. “It could be 20 cents a pound to the grower. It takes 70 cents to break even. “I am not going to work and lose money. I probably left 100,000 pounds on the tree. That’s my income. I have apples, but over the last ¿ve years, you lose money on apples.” No picking also means a loss in income for the many seasonal pickers that travel through the Okanagan, working their way from crop to crop. Van Westen is already planning to sell his crop independently next season, bypassing the coop system and B.C. Tree Fruits, which he said is struggling. “Maybe B.C. Tree fruits has turned their name into mud, that’s what I am starting to think. They are the only ones who can’t sell cherries,” said Van Wes-

ten. “All the independents are selling cherries left, right and centre.” “I think the domestic market is very, very, very oversupplied and prices are very poor,” said Greg Norton, an independent Oliver grower. He relies on export markets for his sales, but has still been hard hit by the weather. “I am still picking, we are exporting most of our stuff. “We are ¿nding some good sales along the way. But the western Canadian market, which is primarily the packing house’s market, it’s a real stinker.” Part of the problem, according to Van Westen, is a Àood of cheap U.S. cherries forcing prices down in B.C. Tree Fruits’ main marketing area. “They’ve been planting thousands of acres over the last 10 years. They probably grew a lower quality, smaller cherry this year, and since we are simple to access, thanks to free trade … we’re getting absolutely hosed this year,” said Van Westen. “They grow their cherries for up to half of what we can thanks to labour costs, land costs, fuel costs. Everything is cheaper down in the States, and they are subsidized.” Norton agrees there is an over abundance of fruit on the market, due to growers in Washington state dumping fruit at low prices. “They had a lot of cheap, poorquality stuff. No question about it, that had a negative impact on our market. But that’s not a new story, that’s ancient news, that’s been the way it’s been forever,” said Norton, who is coming off his best year ever. But even on a bad year, Norton said there are some positive signs. While B.C. Tree Fruits may be having trouble ¿nding local buyers, he said independent growers are seeing support for Canadian fruit. “We are still seeing the Canadian consumer supporting Canadians,” he said. “Some of our buyers out there are saying to hell with the American stuff, we want Canadian. That’s really encouraging.”

NDP leader visiting Penticton Steve Kidd Western News Staff

Adrian Dix, leader of the B.C. NDP, will be in Penticton this weekend to take part in the Peachfest parade. He’ll also be meeting with local supporters and attending a fundraising event hosted by the Penticton NDP Constituency Association. “It is Peachfest weekend, so he is coming up for that, to be in the parade,” said David Finnis, former president of the constituency association. Now a prospective candidate for the Penticton riding, he will be joining Dix in the parade, along with fellow nominee Dick Cannings. “He has come in and out of the Okanagan a lot in the last year since he has been leader,” said Finnis. “It’s a good weekend in the sense there is a lot of stuff going on in Penticton. It’s a fun weekend.” For NDP supporters, that includes the

fundraiser at the Shatford, which gets underway at 6:30 p.m. on Friday in the Galleria room. The event is primarily a social event, giving an opportunity for Dix Dix to chat with supporters on a more individual basis, but he will also be giving a short speech, as will the local prospective candidates. Finnis has had several chances to chat with Dix before and since he was selected as leader for the provincial NDP. “I was really impressed. As a speaker, he is absolutely incredible. He is one of those people that can get up there and with absolutely no notes, stay focused, stay on topic,” said Finnis. “I think he has done a good job of raising an issue and raising an alternative. One of the things he has tried to do is portray the positive.”

RECRUITING BILLET FAMILIES

CANADIAN ROCK BAND 54-40 is bringing their catalogue of hits that span 30 years in the music business with them to the Penticton Peach Festival stage at Okanagan Lake Park on Friday night.

ence. The hard part of what we do is all the stuff other than the playing, you know like trying to get across the border,” chuckled Merritt. The band has an unbelievable catalogue of hit songs including Baby Ran, She La, One Gun, Ocean Pearl, I Go Blind, One Day In Your Life and Nice to Luv You. Last year they released the album Lost In The City and Merritt said they are working on new songs they hope to release next year. Led by chief songwriter Neil Osborne, 54•40 has carved out a legacy of gold and platinum albums and an outstanding reputation for their live performances with a genuine sound that isn’t out of a “musical laboratory,” said Merritt. The guitarist said expect to hear a bulk of their hits when they play Peachfest on Friday at Okanagan Lake Park at 9:40 p.m. He added that even after playing so many shows they haven’t become robots on stage, in fact, it is the live shows that they draw inspiration and strength from. “When you have done this as long as we have and you get to a certain age, you realize this doesn’t last forever. As long as this has lasted, at some point it is going to end. I think that adds a sense of appreciation. This is a wonderful thing we have and we got into it with that sort of spirit.”

Stuck waiting in traf¿c at a border crossing into the U.S. for a gig, 54•40 bassist Brad Merritt said the band continues to look forward. “You have to look through the rear view mirror now and then though to ¿gure out where you have been,” he said. And the view that day was a growing lineup of cars waiting behind, excitedly inching forward with their every movement — an analogy that could be drawn for 54•40’s fans. Merritt said after 30 years of being together they have kept a loyal fanbase, while winning over new ones. He noticed a few years ago there is a whole new generation now listening to their music. “If you are in your early 40s and discovered us fairly early or maybe in your formative years then you maybe get married and have a couple of kids and are still playing the music on the stereo, the kids grow up listening to that and they are now at the show. It has happened several times where I looked out in the crowd and noticed that and that is great. I fully expect that in Penticton,” said Merritt. The Okanagan is no stranger to Merritt,

who has vacationed here for years with his family and performed with the band on a regular basis in the area. B.C. forever will be home for 54•40. The alternative rock band has come a long way since their very ¿rst gig on New Year’s Eve 1981 at the Smilin’ Buddha Cabaret. That venue’s name was the title of their sixth album, which went platinum. “My personal goal when we started was to open up for the Subhumans at the Commodore Ballroom and that was as far as I could see and I could die happy,” said Merritt. That concert bill was never created, but the Commodore became a comfort zone for 54•40. It was here they opened for bands touring through, eventually lining up their own shows, and almost every year since 1986 they have performed at least once at the renowned Vancouver music venue. Merritt estimates in their 30 years they have performed live some 2,000 times, pushing them to become better musicians, singers and develop an attitude to not take anything for granted. “We are at the point where most people are quite familiar with our songs and they are happy to see us and we are happy to be there. You get this energy Àowing at live shows so it is a very positive experi-

Recall notice given on remake of classic sci-fi flick At the end of the 21st century, Earth is slowly falling apart in Total Recall. For factory worker Douglas Quaid (Colin Farrell), life is mundane and lacking the relevance it deserves. After visiting Rekall, a company that implants false memories into its customers to spice up their lives, Quaid awakens convinced he is a spy. Now on the run for his life from the police of a corrupt government, he must ¿rst ¿gure out what is real and what is Rekall, before he can ¿gure out who he is. We say, it’s a new take on an old favourite.

Taylor & Howe

Reel Reviews HOWE: Total Recall is a beautiful looking movie. It’s very slick, polished and neon-ish. It’s a jam-packed action movie from the very opening to the very end. For

me it was a little too much action and not enough story. TAYLOR: I love Phillip K. Dick stories and I also enjoyed the original ¿lm from 1990. This ¿lm did pack more of a punch than the ¿rst, but I agree that the price you pay for that punch is plot. I found myself getting bored of frenetic chase sequences and Bourne-like ¿st ¿ghts. HOWE: Farrell did an okay job, but then again any action star could have played the part. You could have thrown Jason Statham or Clive Owen into the role of Quaid and you would have had the same result. Come to YOUR CARTRIDGE SPECIALISTS SINCE 2001

@MrCartridge

think of it even Arnie could have played him. TAYLOR: I agree. A blind gorilla could have played Quaid, it’s the story that matters for this ¿lm, the exposition, the world in which the action takes place that is interesting. This world did not get served as well in this ¿lm as it did in the ¿rst. However, other than the added ¿ght and chase scenes, I did like the differences between this ¿lm and ¿rst. HOWE: This Recall isn’t a straight remake of the ‘90s version which is good, but there are a few references to the original, a nice touch by

director Len Wiseman. TAYLOR: The future Earth was a lot bleaker and deeper. Like a modern view of a Blade Runner-esque world, complete with mixed races, languages and nonstop rain. Still, if you lined up these two movies, back to back, I think I would prefer the original, it was more fun. This one, although kept entirely on Earth and offering a similar capitalist threat, felt like Bourne meets I, Robot at times. It made the trappings of Quaid’s double-agency less effective. The ¿lm seems to want us to remember the

original, by way of throwing out one-liners once in a while, as if saying, “Look, we’re clever and cute too.” But I don’t think, in this instance, they needed to. Also, not enough mutants. HOWE: What about the three breasted lady? You don’t see that every day. Howe gives Total Recall 2.5 core travelling trains out of ¿ve. Taylor gives it three S’mints out of ¿ve. Total Recall is playing at the Pen Mar Cinema Centre. Brian Taylor and Peter Howe are movie reviewers from the Okanagan.

Wagamese pens winner with Indian Horse I may be pushing the boundaries of this column but Kamloops, home of one of Canada’s most celebrated Aboriginal authors, is scarcely more than 100 miles away as the crow Àies. Richard Wagamese has penned several books including his memoir One Native Life, which was one of The Globe and Mail’s 100 Best Books of 2008, and One Story, One Song which was awarded the George Ryga Award for social awareness in 2011. His latest book is called Indian Horse. Saul Indian Horse is a young Ojibway boy who is apprehended and taken to a Catholic residential school in the 1960s. There he suffers neglect and abuse. It seems as though Saul will end up in an unmarked grave,

like so many of the other students. Saul is seemingly rescued from this fate by the appearance of a new priest at the school who has a passion for hockey. Saul is an immediate star of the game — he has a unique ability to see the ice and unsurpassed speed. He practices on an outdoor rink in oversized, second-hand equipment, using a horse turd as a puck. Once his talent is recognized, he is able to leave the school to play on a Aboriginal

hockey team in northern Ontario. Saul’s prowess brings several invitations to play on off-reservation teams, and eventually to try out for the Toronto Maple Leafs. Each foray off the reserve begets a series of taunts, ridicule and outright beatings for daring to play “the white man’s game.” It’s not the hockey story we are used to hearing. Wagamese ¿rst intended Indian Horse to be a novella about an Ojibway hockey player, but stories from residential school survivors made their way onto the pages. Wagamese’s portrayal of the suffering of the parents whose children were stolen and of the children themselves is incredibly moving. Even if you think you know what happened to

generations of Aboriginal people, this book will make you sit up and reconsider the tragedy. When writing a column, I sometimes make connections to holidays, literary awards or current events. This time, unfortunately, the connection is personal. Just as I sat down to write, I received a phone call about a cousin, a young First Nations man, who had taken his own life. This death mirrors the tragedy Wagamese portrays through story. It’s not one thing but many things that bring a person down, and sometimes people are made to suffer so much that it takes generations of work to heal. We still, it seems, have much to do. Heather Allen is a reader and writer living in Penticton.

Meteor shower promises a spectacular display Steve Kidd Western News Staff

This weekend, Mother Nature will be putting on her own ¿reworks show,

as the Perseid meteor shower makes its annual visit to summer skies. On Sunday, the Dominion Radio Astrophysical Observatory will be

celebrating the event, with the help of some guest speakers and members of the Royal Astronomical Society, Okanagan Centre, who will be setting

up their telescopes at the observatory for a public viewing. The observatory on White Lake Road, sited well away from interfering city lights, is an ideal spot for observing the shower, according to retired astronomer and astronomical society member Chris Purton. “On Aug. 12 there will be no moon during the evening, so the sky should be really dark. If the weather is at all kind to us, it should be quite spectacular,” said Purton.

“It would be spectacular even without the meteors; the meteor shower is an added bonus.” The Perseids are the debris stream ¿lling the orbit of Comet Swift Tuttle. According to astronomer Ken Tapping, thousands of small pieces of that debris, ranging in size from dust upwards, will crash into the atmosphere at tens of kilometres a second. Meteors, sometimes inaccurately called shooting stars, are common, according to Tapping, and can be seen on any clear

night, especially at places far away from lights, like the observatory. But on nights like Sunday, there will be a much larger number of meteors as the Earth speeds through a stream of fragments crossing at many kilometres a second. Purton, along with Tapping, Ryan Ransom and Roland Kothes, will be giving a short series of talks as they wait for darkness to fall. The gates to the observatory open at 7:30 p.m., with the talks starting at 8:15 p.m. Sky

gazing should begin at about 9:30 p.m. “The sight of hundreds of people stretched out on the lawn of the observatory in the pitch black, staring at the sky, makes quite a scene,” said Purton, adding that he loves to hear the audience ooh and aah as the meteors shoot through the night sky. “If it’s really bright it can even generate a spontaneous round of applause.” The event is free, and visitors are advised to bring a lawn chair or blanket to sit on.

COLE DEPNER (right) was picked up to play for Team B.C. at nationals in Quebec City. Depner will be looked to by his new team for his strong defensive play and ability to receive the ball.

SOMBA Tiger chosen to play with Team B.C. Steve Waldner Western News Staff

One of the South Okanagan Minor Baseball Association Tigers is getting the chance to lace up his glove for Team B.C. at the upcoming national championships in Quebec. Following a strong personal season, 17-year-old Cole Depner has been picked to play for Team B.C. when they venture to Quebec City to face off against some of the top AAA midget baseball players in the country. “It was a really big honour to know they think I’m good enough to be selected for this team out of all the players in the whole league,” said Depner. “It’s a really big boost for my conÀdence.” “I’m hoping to know whether I match up with other players across the country, and hopefully this will be a great learning experience,” he added. “Hopefully we do well and turn out with a good place in the tournament.” Over the past season, Depner was recognized as one of the strongest players on the Tigers’ team, winning a Golden Glove award for his defensive play, earning a spot on the combined Interior and Island team for the B.C. all-star game and hitting the Tigers’ only home run in the past two years. However, Depner and the rest of Team B.C. will be facing tough competition, said Bo Boxall, Team B.C.’s assistant coach. “Our toughest opponents have routinely been Quebec and Ontario,” he said. “Both of those provinces put out

DEPNER is looking forward to competing on a national stage to see where he stacks up to the best AAA midget players in the country.

some very talented ball players, and they get an opportunity to face some really upper echelon competition throughout the year.” As well as the traditionally strong eastern teams, Boxall said that Team Alberta was looking particularly good this year — and as B.C. has both Alberta and Quebec in their pool, they’re going to have to perform their best to get by. Boxall has high hopes for Depner’s national debut and a speciÀc role already outlined for him. “We took Cole because of his ability to receive the ball and at this level it’s very important for your starting catcher to be a very good receiver,” he said. “Ul-

timately, I’d like to see Cole take the lead and start out as a catcher for Team B.C. this year.” As well as the conÀdence and recognition of skill, playing at this national level will give Depner a taste of the level of competition he will be facing in the fall, when he hangs up his Tigers jersey to replace it with one from the University of Toronto’s baseball team. “A lot of the players we’ll face at the nationals, a lot of those players end up playing with schools such as the U of T on the east coast, so he’ll be able to see a lot of these guys and have the opportunity to face pitching that’s a higher level than what he’s faced over the season,” Boxall said. In the past, B.C. has won three bronze medals in the tournament. However, last year the team Ànished in seventh place. While earning a medal is the obvious goal for the team, the coaching staff has another agenda for their players. “What stands out for us, as a coaching staff, is to really try and allow the kids to have memorable experiences that they still talk about,” said Boxall. “It’s a short experience, and if we can win the national championship that’s great and that’s always the ultimate goal, but everybody wants to walk away with some positive memories.” The 2012 Midget Championships will be held from Aug. 16-20, and Team B.C.’s Àrst game will be against the hosting Quebec team.

• RELIABLE • PROFESSIONAL • RESPONSIBLE

The Penticton Pikes swim club has seen its share of difÀculties and hardships. A few years ago, the club was on the brink of ceasing to exist, with only a handful of members and their pool shut down. Now, the Pikes are back with a full club and, if this past weekend’s swim meet is any indication, something to prove. Of the 22 swimmers representing the Pikes at the regional meet, 12 earned spots at the provincial meet in Nanaimo from Aug. 17 to 19, either as main competitors or alternates. In the process, the club managed to rack up a large number of medals. Along with a number of relay med-

als, the team received 10 individual medals overall. As well, most of the swimmers recorded best times in their events, as well as placing fourth overall in points per swimmer. Three of the ten individual medals were earned by Ashley McMillan, who received a bronze in the 50m free and 50m butterÁy as well as a silver in the 100m IM. TJ Paisley received a silver for the 100m breaststroke and a bronze in the 200m IM. As well, 13-yearold Jaren LeFranc won a gold medal in the boys division 4 50m breaststroke in one of the tightest races of the weekend. “The swimmer who was in Àrst had been winning that race all

year at every meet,” said Elliot Clarke, the Pikes’s head coach . “Jaren just went out, and on the last length beat him and won the race.” In the end, LeFranc, who is in his rookie year of competition, had only clinched Àrst place by 0.2 seconds. “I was third going in, but I wasn’t that nervous,” said LeFranc. “I kind of surprised myself too, in a way.” Other individual winners were Simon Paisley, who earned silver in the 100m backstroke, Mason Heintz, who won gold in the 100m freestyle and silver in the 50m freestyle. In the 100m freestyle event, Heintz passed four other swimmers with lower seed times, and shaved seven seconds off his own. Elliot had nothing but praise for his swimmers. “The swimmers really made me proud this past weekend. Pretty much all of them exceeded expectations.”

he said. “Made me proud to be the coach of the club.” For Katy Clarke, the Pikes’s president, the weekend’s success reÁects a renewal of the Pikes club, which now has 75 members, and is the fourth largest in the Okanagan. She attributed the success to the club’s supporters. “We have a huge group of parents who are willing to step up and help out,” she said. “There’s a ton of people going around doing a ton of jobs to keep it going and help with fundraising and Ànd money to keep it going.” As well, for Katy, the success will only help establish the club’s name in other meets. “It’s great for the club. It’s just going to breed more kids wanting to try swim meets. When you have success it’s not quite as scary, and people want to be part of the team,” said Katy. “I think it’s going to help the young base of swimmers who are so new to competitions to try it out.” For young swimmers now itching to compete, they will have an opportunity next August. “We’ve been given the provincial qualifying meet, so it’ll be held in Penticton next year on the same weekend,” said Katy. “That’s huge. It’ll bring about 300 families into Penticton.”

John After having commented that he had a good life, Johannes Antonius Schoonderwoert, known as John, passed away after a brief illness, with his wife, Juliet at his side, on August 3, 2012 at the age of 82. Born in Enschede, Holland he had many tales of his adventures as a youngster during WW11. In 1953 John immigrated to Canada being drawn by the great outdoors. Photography and oil painting were his passions and John was never happier than when in the hills of Summerland hiking, camping or cross country skiing. As he often said, “if you live in paradise why do you need to travel?”. While having no children of his own there are many surrogate children and grandchildren who have appreciated John’s caring advice and support over the years. He will be missed. A Celebration of John’s Life will be held 2:00 pm. Saturday, September 29th from the family residence. Donations in John’ memory made to the Summerland Trans Canada Trail, 6803 Nixon Road, Summerland, BC., V0H1Z9 if friends so desire.
