THE OKANAGAN SUN won what their coach called a “must-win” game Sunday, downing the Kamloops Broncos in Kamloops.

THE PROJECT that provided new patient care towers at Kelowna General Hospital and Vernon’s Jubilee Hospital has been recognized as a top construction job in the province this year.

DIABETES is becoming an epidemic in North America say health officials. Seniors are being advised to pay attention, eat right and exercise to fend of the debilitating disease.

Police investigating ‘swarming’ attack STAFF REPORTER

A seemingly random beating has cast a pall over a recent weekend festival and once again raised questions about the safety of Kelowna’s downtown. Following the Centre of Gravity festival on B.C. Day long weekend, two young men from Clearwater were brutally attacked near the corner of Bernard Avenue and Ellis Street in a manner that seems to be increasingly common. “My son and his friend (Liam, Jesse) were walking back to their hotel room late Sunday night when they were assaulted by a group of six males,” wrote Clearwater resident Bob Dhillon to the Capital News last week. “Bystanders called 911. An ambulance arrived and both were hospitalized with serious facial injuries. While in the hospital my son spoke with three other persons who were also hospitalized with similar injuries and assaulted in a similar way. Outnumbered and surprised by the same group.” Although the investigating officer in the case went on vacation immediately after the file was opened, RCMP Const.

Kris Clark has done some follow up and said he’s seen nothing to relate this incident to any other. “There was one other unprovoked attack, and that entailed a single suspect and a single victim,” said Clark. He said there’s also nothing to connect the recent incident to a swarming that put a 34-year-old Ontario man into the hos-

pital last March. In that incident, the victim suffered massive head injuries when three men attacked him outside O’Flannigans Pub on Queensway. While the violent out-

bursts may not involve the same people, they do speak to an emerging trend, said Clark. “(Swarmings) do seem to be more prevalent, in that it does happen more often than it used to.” And, the RCMP spokesman said, it doesn’t take long for those kinds of fights to escalate into serious injuries. Facial reconstruction surgery is required for the Clearwater victims and the Ontario man was placed in a medically induced coma to cope with the wounds he incurred. To be safe, Clark said it’s best not to navigate the downtown alone late at night. Avoid drinking to inebriation and avoid conflict if at all possible. “If someone is being aggressive or wanting to fight, you don’t have to man up and fight them back,” said Clark. “Say you don’t want to fight, and get out. Go somewhere…to a welllit area with more people around.” The investigation into the recent attack hasn’t gotten underway given that the police officer with the file has been on vacation. But the RCMP says any tips to police would be welcomed. kmichaels@kelownacapnews.com

NEWS ▼ BLAZE

Westside forest fire snuffed out quickly Jennifer Smith CAPITAL NEWS

A forest fire on the hill above Westside Road near Traders Cove Sunday afternoon may have been deliberately set, Kelowna RCMP say. The fire was reported around 2:30 p.m. and fire trucks could be seen from the water trying to deal with a plume of smoke within 15 minutes.

The blaze grew quickly, flames visible from the lake, and still required monitoring by Monday morning, with reports of paid on-call firefighters being called in to deal with hotspots at mid-morning. “The fire was suppressed quickly, but there is evidence to suggest that it may have been set deliberately,” said Cst. Kris Clark, RCMP media rela-

tions officer, following the regular Monday morning police briefing. Sunday afternoon ground crews were joined by a number of air supports, including two water bombers, two helicopters and what appeared to be a support plane as the provincial fire service stepped in to assist the West Kelowna Fire Department. The fire is being described as a multi-hectare

fire and required crews to work through the night. By Monday morning, efforts switched to stamping out the last bits of flame and tracking down witnesses who might be able to tell investigators what happened. Anyone with information is asked to call the West Kelowna RCMP and speak with Cst. Kent Hall or Cst. Michael Philion at (250) 768-2880; tipsters

can also call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or make a report online at www.crimestoppers.net. The blaze was the second forest fire of the weekend. On Friday evening, a small brush fire near McCullough Road had a water bomber, fire engines and brush fire crew in action. It was also extinguished quickly. jsmith@kelownacapnews.com

City marks a year since shooting Kathy Michaels STAFF REPORTER

JENNIFER SMITH/CAPITAL NEWS

BALANCING ACT…Mary Bruder tries her hand, or rather her feet, at slacklining in City Park on Monday with a group of friends.

Kelowna residents will mark a grim anniversary this week, with no more clarity on what briefly turned the downtown into a war-zone than they had a year ago. A hail of gunshots was released in front of the Delta Grand Hotel, shattering the usual calm of an Okanagan summer, late in the afternoon Aug. 14, 2011. Notorious B.C. gangster Jonathan Bacon, 30, was killed and full-patch Hells Angel Larry Amero and James Riach of the Independent Soldiers were shot and wounded. Leah Hadden-Watts, 21, whose uncle is the president of the Haney Hells Angel chapter and who was with the men was paralyzed by a bullet. Riach fled the scene. Miraculously, no bystanders were injured. All that information was laid out in the days following the shooting, but little has changed in the public’s view since.

“All we’re saying is that the investigation is progressing. I can’t give details on what we’ve done or the investigation,” said Sgt. Bill Whalen of the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit. He also couldn’t speak to what’s happened to the survivors of the attack, noting that’s a private matter, or who in particular the suspects may be. But, he said, there’s no reason for locals to worry that there will be a repeat performance in the days to come despite last year’s warnings that a reprisal may be at hand. “People shouldn’t be concerned. There’s been nothing that’s happened in Kelowna since that time,” he said. While there may be little gang activity related to that particular shooting in the city, many of those who were closest to the violence have had many concerns since that time. Daniel Bibby, the general manager of the Delta Grand, said his employees have had their ups and downs in the aftermath.

“It’s difficult to look back, even though it’s been a year now since that tragic event rocked our community,” he said. “It’s such an isolated incident that summer in Kelowna…but with that said, it took an emotional toll on us all.” Immediately after

‘‘ IT TOOK AN EMOTIONAL TOLL ON US ALL. Daniel Bibby

the shooting the hotel established post-traumatic stress disorder counselling, and most were able to move on. “We’ve had a couple employees— as is the case of anything of that nature, it affects different people in different ways—who have needed more support along the way,” he said.

And, he said, there’s been a silver lining. “Sometimes it takes an event of this nature to bring a group together,” he said. “If there’s a silver lining to any event, it’s that our team came together as a family and the community outreach was amazing.” Bibby said the staff were comforted by the community support, and it taught him the value of this city. “It would take more than an event of this nature to convince me this isn’t the most amazing community in the country,” he said. Bibby also wasn’t dissatisfied with the police effort. Despite the fact there’s been no arrests from the brazen daylight shooting, he noted that they’ve been very helpful. He’s also been working with the mayor and the business community on the best practices for dealing with gang members, to ensure guests would be safe in the future.

The Downtown Kelowna Block Party was a given a fresh name this year, which is probably fitting considering downtown is about to be revitalized as well. “There was some concern as to whether or not it would be recognized. Clearly, the turnout showed that people understood what we were trying to do (Saturday),” said Dustin Sargent, vicepresident of the Downtown Kelowna Association. “If you looked from one end of Bernard to the other, there was really no thin or windy spots.

THOUSANDS of people turned out to for the Downtown Block Party on BernardAvenue Saturday. The event, once known as Madri Gras, benefitted from sunshine and allowed merchants to show off their wares.. People packed the streets the whole way down.” Construction on Bernard Avenue will begin later this month and will be completed in three phases: The first will be done in the fall of 2012, the second in the spring of 2013 and the final stage will be completed in the fall of 2013. The strategy allows Kelowna’s main street to

be open during the peak months of next year’s summer season. “There’s construction happening down here for the first time in many years, a new main street, a new Yacht Club, a new Kerry Park,” said Sargent. “This is the year that we’re going to start seeing some shovels in the ground and some change—I think there’s

some momentum behind that.” The DKA vicepresident admitted that the construction will likely hurt businesses in the short-term; however, will be greatly beneficial down the road. “We’re going to weather the storm together. “I think everybody in the community is ready for this transformation of

Russian haze is back

Fires that have been plaguing Russia for months now have causing smoke to drift across the Pacific Ocean toward North America. NASA scientists have said the intense heat from the fires has pushed the smoke 12 miles into the air, where it is carried by winds across the Pacific into the upper atmosphere. The increased particles in the air have produced especially red sunsets in California, Oregon,Washington state, and parts of B.C. There currently does not seem to be any let up in the fire activity in Russia. Smoke from the fires reached dangerous concentrations in major Siberian cities.

Okanagan Pride week underway Kathy Michaels STAFF REPORTER

When Wilbur Turner addressed the gathering at the Okanagan Pride Interfaith Spiritual Event Sunday, he wasn’t in typical churchgoing attire. He spoke from the pulpit in a striking purple dress as his dragqueen alter-ego Oddree Mayormaynot, and broke through a few barriers in the process. “We’ve never had the church involved with pride celebrations before,” said Turner, who’s co-chair of the organizing committee. And rarely, if ever, has there been a drag queen addressing a local congregation, but times have changed and that was exactly what Oddree got up there to speak about. “Oddree relayed some experiences of what it’s been like being a gay man

coming out as part of a congregation,” he said. As a member of a conservative Calgary based church in the 1990s, Turner was ostracized when he announced his sexual orientation. “I was asked not to sit near children and to take the sacrament last, so I didn’t give anyone germs,” he said. Ultimately he ended up leaving the church and lost his faith until it dawned on him that it was ignorance, not the church, that caused the bigotry he experienced. And he’s not alone. Education has changed the way many churches deal with their gay parishioners and that’s prompting some to return to their religious roots. “Now people are starting to see we don’t need lesbian-bi-gay-transgendered churches,” he said. “We can be part of

mainstream faith. It’s great now to see so many organizations embracing diversity.” Turner’s also hoping Oddree—who just came into being in the last year— will further bridge the gap between Kelowna’s straight and LBGT community, and if her turn speaking to the church was any indication she’s making strides in the right direction. “So many people came up and thanked me for sharing my story and making it personal,” he

said. That, he said, is the point of Pride events. “There is a party element, but it’s about celebrating diversity and helping people realize you can be gay and have a great life as part of the community,” said Turner. Fittingly, the community has really embraced this year’s events. The eight day celebration started Friday night, and there has been events every night since. The party won’t end until Saturday, amounting to eight days of festivities. “It’s been great to see all these folks out,” said Turner. “We’re lining up for an awesome week.” Everything from flashmobs to concerts and drag queen contests will roll out in the week ahead.

She was given the special one-year exemption from the law when the B.C. Supreme Court judge Lynn Smith ruled the ban was unconstitutional. The judge gave the federal government one-year to re-write the

Cross-Canada journey for MS awareness Wade Paterson STAF REPORTER

Chris Anderson’s sister was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis a year and a half ago. He knew very little about the disease at the time. “I did some research and learned about the disease. My sister’s neurologist said they were optimistic that they’ll find a cure within five years,” said Anderson. “I thought, why not raise as much money as I can to speed that up a bit?” Anderson took off from St. John’s, NL July 17. Twenty-five days and 10,000 kms later, he’s on the home stretch of his journey. “Before I started, I didn’t know if anybody would even care or be interested in what I decided to do. But everyone has

been really generous— we’ve met a lot of really nice people.” The police officer who is using his vacation time to complete the trip has raised over $14,000 for the MS Society of Canada to date. He hopes he can break the $20,000 mark by the end of the ride. Michelle Hewitt, a board member with the local MS society chapter, was thrilled to see Anderson come through Kelowna Friday. “People (like Anderson) are inspirational,” said Hewitt. “The fact that people take time out of their lives to do things that ultimately help people like me—they’re my heroes.” Hewitt has an aggressive form of MS that has kept her in a wheelchair for the last three-and-ahalf years. “Some people have the type where you can work alongside them and

never know they have the disease. They’re still suffering, but it’s invisible. Mine is very visible and it has taken me away from everything that I do. As soon as I’m done here today, I’ll go home and sleep for the afternoon. I do that every day.” She added that MS has made significant advances in research over the last 10 years; however, more progress has led to more questions. Miriam King, fundraising coordinator with the local MS society chapter, said that Anderson’s effort gives the society “huge awareness.” “It’s a fantastic opportunity to bring education and information to the public,” said King. “It’s such an invisible disease. The symptoms of MS are fatigue, pain and numbness—you can’t see that. But with people doing events like this, it

brings (MS) to the forefront so people can see that.” King said a local event in September will be key in raising funds for the Okanagan chapter of the MS Society of Canada. The Okanagan Grape Escape will take place Sept. 8 and 9 in Kelowna and West Kelowna. According to King, the event raised nearly $60,000 last year and accounts for nearly 50 per cent of the local society’s annual fundraising. “We raise the funds we need to support the individuals in our community who live with the disease,” said King. She added the Kelowna MS clinic has approximately 800 patients. For more information on Anderson’s ride, visit msride.ca. For more information on the Okanagan Grape Escape, visit msbiketours.ca.

Itty bitty particles play a big role in reseach When you need to create a device that’s 1/100th the width of a human hair, you don’t wander into the garage and grab your drill. You head to the new micro electro mechanical system (MEMS) fabrication facilities at UBC Okanagan, put on a clean room “bunny” suit, enter a class 100 clean room that provides a dust-free atmosphere, and use a combination of chemistry, light technology and lasers to fabricate devices —or microsystems—as small as one-millionth of a metre, also known as a micron. What the design and application of that microsystem might be is as varied as the expertise of the UBC researchers who are

creating it. “The tools we have access to in the MEMS lab are incredible,” said Jonathan Holzman, associate professor in the School of Engineering at UBCO. “But I would say that the greatest advantage is not so much the equipment, but the people who use it. We have a diverse and talented faculty in mechanical, civil and electrical engineering working together creating solutions for a wide scope of industry and community partners, both locally and globally.” This multidisciplinary approach often leads to an interesting subset of applications and ways to approach different problems, Holzman added.

For example, Holzman, who is an electrical engineer specializing in micro-sensor technologies, is collaborating with UBC mechanical engineering colleagues specializing in micro-fluidics to improve water quality sensing for Kelowna. “We are developing a very small microsystem —essentially a lab on a chip—with multiple sensing techniques that has the ability to quickly detect cryptosporidium pathogens in water, helping to ensure a potential problem in water quality can be detected before it makes its way into the public water systems.” It is essential for the MEMS lab to be able to test and view the micro-

UBCO Global Nursing Citizens raise money through Paddle for Africa Wade Paterson Fourth-year nursing students from UBCO have visited Ghana and Zambia every year since 2008. They go on behalf of the university’s Global Nursing Citizens: A nonprofit organization focused on instilling humanitarianism in student nurses, educating the community on global issues and providing direct assistance to developing countries. For many it is a practicum experience that broadens their world view; for Ghana and Zambia it is an opportunity to gain valuable medical training and receive helpful supplies. The Global Nursing Citizens partnered with Kelowna Rent a Boat to host Paddle for Afri-

ca Saturday—a stand up paddleboarding event, which raised money for the cause. Alanna Ekkert, a member of the Global Nursing Citizens executive committee, said money raised on the weekend will go directly toward supplies needed in Africa. “All proceeds from (Saturday) will go toward medical supplies and training supplies. We will also bring money down for resources because it’s often cheaper to buy supplies down there,� said Ekkert. “None of the proceeds will go to students getting down there—they pay for that individually.� When asked how important the nurses’ presence in Ghana and Zambia is, Ekkert said: “The need is huge, especially

for training.� According to Ekkert, the group brought down several neonatal resuscitation dolls last year for African nurses to practice with. Previously, unnecessary infant deaths would occur from situations like severe nasal congestion that wasn’t properly treated, she added. “By partnering with us, we’re able to take the training down and take the equipment they can practice on. “Even in the last year we got letters and pictures—there’s been so much growth in their knowledge and scope of practice from doing this.� Ekkert said student interest in the trip has grown over the years; therefore, the Global Nursing Citizens are working to get more placements, includ-

You can resolve features in an object that are as small as four nanometers,� said Phillion. “It is an essential research tool that enables students and faculty from multiple disciplines to examine a sample and then understand the composition, texture and functionality of the object they are working with,� he said. The Charles Fipke Foundation donated $500,000 to cover the cost of the SEM, located in the Fipke Centre for Innovative Research.

Ask Dr. Ike How does stress affect health?

It is important to remember that a healthy mind is the foundation of good health. The mind is the master of the body. Stress affects the mind and the mind affects the body. Nearly two-thirds of all visits to physicians today are for stress-related problems. When faced with continuous stress, people begin to see physical symptoms.

▼ OUR VIEW

Olympics offers a moment of uplift

I

n a world where there is often precious little to celebrate, where citizens must die for democracy, people are gunned down in a movie theatre and countless other acts leave us saddened, disheartened or just plain cynical, every two years a spectacle takes place that breathes life back into the human spirit. The Olympic Games are a two-week celebration of youth, goodwill and ultimate effort. A glimpse, perhaps, into the light-

er side, the better side, of the human condition. The Olympics are a spectacle where failure doesn’t result in civil war or poverty, but only an acknowledgement that more work is required. To lose leaves little consequence; we simply move on to the next event and hope. Nanoose Bay’s Mike Mason’s high jump effort came up just short of the bronze medal. Simon Whitfield’s crash in triathlon and the women’s loss in

soccer to the U.S. left us disappointed. But to win leaves us punching the air in celebration, with lumps in our throat as our national anthem plays. We see the joy and understanding in the athlete at the top of the podium, having carried an entire nation’s hopes on their shoulders. To have so much sacrifice pay off. That is what we celebrate. And while every Olympics has its shortfalls, corpo-

rate sponsorships and huge investment in venues, the price is worth it. For two weeks, the world converges in one place without politics, religion or greed. For two weeks, we get a glimpse of a world without borders. As the 2012 London Olympics drew to a close, and the Olympic Flame was once again extinguished, we can pocket the moments of inspiration, learn from the failures and embrace the human race.

B.C. liquor laws are finally more effective H

ere’s a summer scene being played out all over North America. Family van pulls up to the corner store to stock up on a few camping essentials—pop, chips, hot dogs, a case of beer and a bottle of vodka. Not in B.C. you say? It happens every day at rural agency liquor stores around the province. As with many other issues, there is one reality for urban B.C. and another for the rest of us. Selling booze in grocery stores would presumably create anarchy in B.C cities and towns, but villagers and their visitors somehow manage it, just as everyone does across the line in

Washington or Alaska. These rural agency stores are “flyspeck operators,” sniffs an acquaintance who spent his career as a union activist in government liquor stores. Picture dusty old bottles on a rickety shelf, greedy owners and poorly trained clerks more likely to sell to under-age drinkers. Similar generalizations can be heard about the hundreds of private liquor stores that have popped up around B.C. since they were legal-

VICTORIA ized. And, in fact, there VIEWS have been more viola-

tions in private stores, revealed in sting operations run by liquor inspectors. In the year ended March 31, 54 Tom private stores were Fletcher caught selling to a minor, for an 84 per cent compliance rate. Only four government stores were caught, a pass rate of 96 per cent. Five rural agency stores were tested, and one flunked. But here is the telling statistic. In 2010, the government allowed liquor

inspectors to employ actual minors to test stores. Previously, they hired people who looked young but were old enough to buy alcohol. As late as 2009, two out of three stores (government or otherwise) sold to them. Problem is, that’s not an actual offence. Now liquor inspectors send in undercover teens, and relieve them of the evidence when they are allowed to buy booze. The watchdog now has teeth, and compliance has jumped. The government glossed over the poorer performance of private stores. But in fairness, three times as many private stores as government ones

were targeted in the new inspections, and the gap is narrow. Government stores also have a huge built-in financial advantage in their wholesale rate, and are generally overstaffed by private sector standards. The B.C. Liberals also moved this spring to make rural agency stores easier to establish. Regulation changes brought the minimum population served from 300 down to 200, and eliminated a vague requirement for a “bona fide community” to exist around the store. Meanwhile, the big booze story

FUTURE SHOP – Correction Notice

▼ SAFER BIKING OPTIONS

Plea: On behalf of all biking people Open letter to Kelowna city council: I am 12 years old. My family often goes for bike rides together, along busy roads like Lakeshore, Gordon and Dehart. We often feel unsafe because the bike lanes are dangerous. Once, when we were biking on Glenmore Road, I almost got hit by a dumptruck which was driving not six inches from the bike lane. My two younger brothers, aged 9 and 8, could have been blown into the road or knocked off their bikes by the force generated from the large vehicles, such as buses and semi-trucks. In Europe, there are safe, designated bike paths, not sidewalks or bike lanes. They have a sidewalk, a partition, a bike path, a partition, and then the road for cars. We have biked on Cawston Road and we felt so much safer be-

cause when a car goes by it doesn’t affect us. With my triathlon club we often go on road rides. Some members of this group, myself included, have been nearly hit by cars because of inadequate bike lanes. On Lakeshore Road by the tennis club, the outer line on the bike lane is gone. On Dehart Road, parts of the bike lane are only two feet wide. On Gordon Drive, the bike lane is one foot wide by the Capri Center. I am concerned about these particular roads because they are among the busiest roads, and often, we have no choice but to bike on sidewalks for fear of getting hit. Denmark is the happiest country in the world. Why? Because people bike everywhere. My family wishes to do so, but it is unsafe. Biking is not only healthy for us and the en-

vironment, but it is fun, and brings joy to many who participate in this sport. My family drops (the insurance on) one vehicle for six months of the year because Kelowna is a bikeable city and we can get everywhere on our bikes. Can we please make it safer? As I write this, I sincerely hope the city will consider what I have written. I write this letter on behalf of my family, my tri club, and all others who love to bike. If we consider these options, our city will not only be more environmentally friendly, but will be happier. I, for one, always enjoy riding my bike. On behalf of all biking people, sincerely. Chloe Sollid-Gagner, Kelowna

▼ FEDERAL POLITICS

MP’s report is simple government propaganda To the editor: It may be high time to re-assess the media’s generosity in providing free space for the report from the MP. (MP’s Report: The politics of who, rather than what, are often in play in Ottawa, Aug. 12 Capital News.) I, for one, expect from such a report, information of significance to the riding or on the MP’s work on behalf of the constituency. It appears, judging from the MP’s latest “report,” that the space has been given over to a propaganda missive from one or more of the Prime Minister’s 1,500 spin doctors. All of the “report” was comprised of a selfcongratulatory acclaim of a government initiative that saves the government some $27 million a year.

Now, $27 million is a princely sum if you win it in the lottery. However, in the Canadian context it amounts to some 90 cents per citizen, slightly more than half the price of a cup of coffee. In contrast, a minister of the Crown “misappropriated” some $50 million to build gazeboes and outhouses in his riding—and he is still a minister—at $1.50 per Canadian. The Prime Minister’s G8/G20 misadventure cost the taxpayers $1.5 billion—some $50 per Canadian. The F35 stealth fighters, which the government continues to insist it will buy, have a price tag of $35 billion—more than $1,000 per Canadian. The point really is that this kind of “report”

does not in the least address what is of concern to the people of B.C. Item number one on anybody’s list of priorities is the question of the Northern Gateway pipeline through the province. This concern should be addressed by the MPs, even those of the Conservative Party who have given the government carte blanche to push the pipeline through, regardless of the environmental impact on our pristine northern environment. The talk about saving $ 27 million is nothing but a second rate attempt to deflect from the burning issue—readers can do without such attempted diversions from pressing concerns.

Unionists, craft beer makers wary Express yourself Fletcher from A10

this year is cabinet minister Rich Coleman’s plan to sell B.C.’s warehouse and distribution monopoly to a private contractor. The B.C. Government Employees’ Union has protested, despite assurances that their jobs will continue. B.C.’s burgeoning craft beer industry has looked to Alberta’s all-private model and predicts higher costs. The B.C. Liberal gov-

ernment has been on the defensive from the start, with the NDP pointing to the paper trail of lobbyists with an apparent inside track. It’s great politics, but it matters little to consumers in an increasingly competitive but heavily taxed business. Another new regulation took effect this summer, creating a $525 fine for adults serving minors, on the job, at home or as a bootlegger. Parents who provide booze for their

own under-age children are exempted. Previously, penalties applied only to licensed establishments. If the issue really is public safety and teen binge drinking, the key job for government is to regulate sales effectively. Once that is done, no justification remains for government liquor sales.

Dealing with ear mites in cats

W

hoever has been unfortunate enough to have suffered from an ear infection knows how terrible the pain and discomfort associated with earaches can be. So, can you imagine having tiny creatures living in your ear canal, constantly causing itchiness and inflammation? Probably the most common cause of ear infections in cats are ear mites. Ear mites are parasites called otodectes cynotis. They live in the ear canal and feed by piercing the skin. Unfortunately, most cats adopted from animal shelters, or even cats with indoor and outdoor lifestyles, will contract ear mites at some point in their lives. Ear mites spread rapidly, and can be transmitted by even brief physical contact with another animal. In pets, ear mites most commonly affect cats, ferrets, and to a lesser extent dogs. Ear mites are a serious problem and are deeply distressing and uncomfortable for your pet. Infestation usually occurs in both ears and can cause intense irritation.

FURRY FRIENDS

Dr. Moshe Oz Scratching, rubbing the ear, head shaking and ear twitching are the most frequent signs exhibited by affected cats. The degree of itching varies among individual cats. It’s common to find hair loss and damage to the skin behind the ears and on the neck due to the intense scratching. The most typical appearance of an ear mite infestation is presence of dark brown-blackish dry or waxy discharge in the ears. Many people are not aware of ear mites and their symptoms and mistakenly think that this discharge is just dirt. If left untreated, ear mites infestation can spread to other parts of the body or spread deeper into the ear, jeopardizing the ear drum integrity and put the animal at risk of deafness. Occasionally, a blood vessel in the ear can rup-

ture, due to the frequent head shaking, leading to a swelling that results from the blood accumulation. This condition is called aural hematoma and requires surgical drainage. Ear mites are diagnosed very easily by a microscopic exam of the discharge from the ear.

‘‘

EAR MITES ARE DIAGNOSED VERY EASILY BY A MICROSCOPIC EXAM OF THE DISCHARGE FROM THE EAR.

This exam can be done at any veterinary facility, does not require sedation or anesthesia, only takes a few minutes, reveals immediate results and is very affordable. Once the diagnosis of ear mites is established, the best course of action is to thoroughly clean the animal’s ears. The medication for ear mites comes in a few different types of topical drops, applied on

the skin or directly into the ear canal. Treatment should be repeated after one month, to kill the next generation of mites that will have hatched by then. Relief, in terms of the animal no longer scratching at its ears, will be noticeable within a few hours. Ear mites can be prevented by monthly application of topical products to guard against parasites and heartworm. Because ear mites are transmitted so easily from one animal to another, if one animal has it, all the other animals in the household should be treated as well. Often, I see people notice a problem in their pet and attempt to treat the problem at home based on advice from the Internet. I always recommend my clients be cautious about using the Net for medical advice. Beside not knowing the source’s credibility, you should know that some home remedies may lead to other medical problems. Moshe Oz operates the Rose Valley Veterinary Hospital at 2476 Westlake Rd.

The joys of budding and grafting plants in your garden

I

often wonder who the first person was to take a piece of one plant and attach it onto another. What purpose would he or she have had in doing it? Perhaps it was an accident. After all, there are several instances in nature where roots and branches have attached themselves to each other without human help. Whatever the purpose and whatever the situation that led to that first successful attempt, there is no doubt in my mind the excitement was no different than when I manage a

FROM THE GROUND UP

Don Burnett good graft in my garden today. Springtime is when scion grafting takes place. A scion is a small piece of branch generally about pencil thickness that is inserted into a recipient tree. The trick with scion grafting is to collect the scion wood early in the

spring before bud break and store it in the refrigerator wrapped in a damp paper towel and sealed with kitchen wrap. When the recipient tree starts to bud out it is time to insert the scion. Bud grafting is a process I find much easier to do and I recommend the beginner try this form first. The best time of year for bud grafting is coming up in early August. The season lasts well into late August and success has even been seen into the middle of September. It is this long window of opportunity that I

Wrestling to make nightclub debut in downtown Kelowna Wayne Farris, better known around the world as The Honky Tonk Man, has been entertaining wrestling fans since 1978. Despite turning 59 this year, Farris is still one of the most active wrestlers on the North American independent wrestling circuit, after becoming a household name in the mid-’80s with World Wrestling Entertainment. Initially brought into the WWE in 1986 as a brash Elvis impersonator of sorts, Farris took the Honky Tonk Man character and put his own unique spin on it, transforming the persona into one of the biggest of the “Rock n’ Wrestling” era that saw professional wrestling hit one of its highest business periods of the 20th century. Farris still holds the mark as being the longest-reigning WWE Intercontinental champion, a record that has stood for almost a quarter-century. He also had several bigmoney feuds with such fellow wrestling legends as Hulk Hogan, Randy Savage, Ricky Steamboat and Jake (The Snake) Roberts. Originally from small-

town Tennessee, Farris now lives in Arizona and while he might be out of the glare of the billiondollar machine that is the WWE, Farris is still plying his craft and teaching a new generation of wrestlers around the globe. Farris is in town Aug. 26, when Kelowna-based Big West Wrestling makes its debut at the Sapphire nighclub on Leon Avenue. It will mark the first time wrestling has been held in a city nightclub. “When I was approached by the Sapphire to do a show in their club, I was immediately gung ho to do it,” said Martin Solotki, Big West Wrestling promoter, “It’s something that hasn’t been done in town and it’s going to be a lot of fun.” He said he was a huge fan of The Honky Tonk Man when he was a kid, “I’ve worked several shows with him in the past several years and I know my crew is looking forward to his knowledge and insight when he hits town Aug. 26. And the crowd is going to be in for a real treat.” Farris will battle the 6-10 masked man, Cre-

mator Von Slasher, who has been “terrorizing” the Okanagan for several years. Tw o other members of the Von Slasher “family,” Rigor and Riea, will take on Raven Lake and Kelowna’s Mad Dog in mixed tag action. Big West Television champion, KC Andrews, has a non-title match against the debuting Matt Hart (of the world-famous Hart family of Calgary), while two other Kelowna wrestlers, Collin Cutler and Kyle Sebastian, will do battle in what is quickly becoming a heated rivalry between these two talented young men. Also on hand will be Michelle Starr, Dr. Wrestling, West Coast Warrior, Black Dragon, Tony Baroni, Ravenous Randy and Mean Machine. Veteran Kelowna referee and wrestler, Kevin Jefferies, will officiate several matches during the evening. There will be five matches on the card. Tickets are $10 in advance and $12 at the door.

think makes success more attainable than in scion grafting. In this procedure a bud is taken from a donor plant and inserted into a recipient plant. There are two methods used, one of which is T-budding and the other is Chip-budding. I prefer using the Tbudding method on roses and chip-budding on fruit trees and ornamentals. A few years ago I planted a Golden Jubilee peach tree in my back

yard and not having the room for more than one tree, I started to bud graft other varieties onto it. I now have a tree with four varieties of peaches, a nectarine and even an almond. If you want to have some fun, create a real conversation piece by budding several colours of climbing roses onto one plant. This should be done using a young plant that has been in the ground for

only a season or two. Insert the buds down as low as you can so all the new varieties bloom from the bottom up. The process of budding and grafting isn’t rocket science but it does take a little knowledge and skill to get good at it. You can learn quite easily from a good instructional book but I suggest you take in a short workshop session available at your favourite garden centre.

Once you succeed in your first graft you will be hooked!

▼ NORTH OKANAGAN

Retinal surgery a no go here: MLA Vernon-area police target

I

along with other local MLAs, am well aware of the concerns of many in the Okanagan who require retinal surgery. They wish the procedure was available closer to home in Kelowna at the Kelowna General Hospital. I sympathize with anyone who needs specific medical care that isn’t offered in their hometown. But these individuals must understand that it’s simply not feasible for KGH to offer every conceivable surgical procedure—especially when it’s available 150 kilometres away. We recognize that this is an important issue, so, as a group, we asked Interior Health to assess the need for retinal surgery at KGH. The health authority did its homework on the issue. It conducted an indepth review of the current patient volume in the Okanagan and other important factors to build a business case and assess the implications. But in this case and at this time, there simply aren’t enough patients from the Okanagan requiring this surgery to sustain a new service at KGH. In B.C., retinal surgery is available in Vancou-

Ben Stewart ver, Victoria and by Interior Health at Royal Inland Hospital in Kamloops. Other health authorities, like the Vancouver Island Health Authority and Northern Health, also offer retinal surgery at a single site. In Vancouver, they have a larger patient population to draw from and have two sites. While it may present challenges to those who are required to travel, this is not unlike other specialized services that are regionally or provincially based. It is a model that works effectively to ensure that quality specialized medical services are accessible to all British Columbians, without increasing the burden on taxpayers. That said, the health authority will continue to monitor the service, as it does with any service, and

consider changes in the future as needed. I also commit to remain engaged with concerned patients and physicians as well as Interior Health moving forward. As part of its patientcentred approach, Interior Health and the province have invested in KGH to address the most pressing local needs.

‘‘ WHILE PROVIDING RETINAL SURGERY AT KGH WOULD BENEFIT LOCAL RESIDENTS WHO REQUIRE THE PROCEDURE, THE BUSINESS CASE MUST FIRST BE THERE AND THE DEMAND MUST BE SUFFICIENT TO ENSURE THE SERVICE IS SUSTAINABLE. For example, the $218 million Centennial Building contains larger operating rooms, a new ambulatory care department and

modern infection control standards. This is just the tip of the iceberg. In total, the Kelowna and Vernon Hospital project, and the new Interior Heart and Surgical Centre at KGH, represent almost $1 billion in health care investments in the Okanagan. Interior Health has an annual operating budget of $1.8 billion. With this budget it provides high quality medical services to a population of more than 700,000 people across 216,000-square-kilometers. While providing retinal surgery at KGH would benefit local residents who require the procedure, the business case must first be there and the demand must be sufficient to ensure the service is sustainable. I would like to thank everyone for sharing their concerns. It is important that we continue to discuss issues as important as health care to ensure that residents of the Okanagan continue to receive the quality service we deserve.

the abuse of ‘safe’ drugs Jennifer Smith CONTRIBUTOR

A highly addictive, yet perfectly legal, drug is increasingly being abused in the North Okanagan. Oxycodene (also known as Endocodene, M-Oxy, OxyCotin, Percolone, Roxicodone) is a prescription drug used to treat moderate to severe pain. But more people, including some North Okanagan youth, are using the pharmaceutical to get high. The misconception is that there’s no harm in taking the narcotic, commonly referred to as ‘hillbilly heroin.’ “Because this is a pill created by the pharmacies they (users) say, ‘it’s safe,’” said Doug Rogers, substance abuse prevention counsellor in the Vernon School District, who is seeing more local youth abusing prescription drugs. “The mindset is: ‘It’s no big deal’ and ‘I’m not a bad kid doing illegal drugs.’” Const. Kathy Szoboticsanec, Vernon-North Okanagan RCMP school liaison officer, adds: “They see mom taking it (for legitimate pain purposes) so it’s ‘OK.’” Oxy is primarily used for cancer patients and those with back injuries, but is increasingly being used among youth as a recreational drug. The same opiate as heroin (with the same effects), this ‘hillbilly heroin’ has a street value of approximately $25 to $50 for one 80 milligram pill/tablet, according to Tory Romailler, constable in charge of the Vernon Task Force. In the schools it has been suggested the price is even lower. On the street, Romailler says Oxy is becoming all too common. “In the last three years, we’ve seen it much more. We hear them talk about it as much as cocaine, heroin and crack,” he said, adding that more than 50 per cent of the dial-a-dopers are now carrying pharmaceuticals. But unlike heroin, it carries a ‘safer and cleaner’ image. “Heroin is a dirty drug,” said Romailler, adding that the use of oxy opens the door to new users. “This has sort of come up the middle and is knocking all these other ones out (meth, cocaine, ecstasy),” said Rogers, adding that in the U.S. oxy is the third most commonly used substance, next to alcohol and marijuana, and Canada tends to follow suit with its southern neighbour. The biggest problem is how accessible the drug is. “This is sitting in the medicine cabinets,” said Szoboticsanec. “If parents

have prescriptions, lock them up.” Rogers urges parents, grandparents and other caregivers: “You better watch your medicine, you better watch your kids.” Unlike trying to get their hands on illegal drugs, dealers can easily access oxy by purchasing unused pills from those with prescriptions or taking a little off the top of their own prescriptions. “It’s as accessible as cocaine, more I’d say,” said Romailler. And hiding the pills isn’t hard either. Unlike marijuana, the pills have no odour, and since they are legal, they are often carried around in prescription bottles. But Romailler warns parents to also watch for unsuspecting candy and mint tins. Officials are concerned that teenagers are using oxy to self-medicate for anxiety, mental health, hormones, family issues and the stresses associated with school. But what they may not realize is how addictive oxy is—something that doctors and physicians warn those who legitimately take the drug. Therefore when the refills run out and the funds dry up for illegal sales, most move onto the next best thing, which is also cheaper—heroin. And it has already begun. “There’s so many kids on heroin right now,” said Szoboticsanec. Some local youth’s lives have been seen spiralling downwards into prostitution, theft and running drugs to afford their drug abuse and pay off their drug debts. “The worst part is, when they’re battling their addiction, what they’re doing to support it,” said Szoboticsanec. “They’re at the point where they need it so they’ll do anything.” And for those who decide to stop, or whose parents intervene, it’s often too late to quit cold turkey. “They think that these kids can wean themselves off,” said Szoboticsanec. “They can’t. They need to be sent to a facility.” Unfortunately, such facilities cost upwards of $50,000—a price most families can’t afford. Parents and caregivers concerned about oxy use with youth are urged to watch for signs of flu-like symptoms and mellow behaviour. “If it’s beyond flu season and they constantly have the flu, have the discussion,” said Szoboticsanec, of the side effects of withdrawal.

BUSINESS ▼ CONSTRUCTION

KGH project wins award One of Kelowna’s largest construction projects has been recognized with an award. The Vancouver Regional Construction Association gave a silver award to Graham Design Builders for the Kelowna and Vernon hospital projects in the General Contractor Over $40 Million category. The project built new patient care towers at KGH and Vernon’s Jubilee hospital. The VRCA selected three winners in several categories for their use of innovative building techniques, new materials or exceptional project management and each received a silver award. Gold winners will be announced at the 24th annu-

al VRCA Awards of Excellence gala dinner Oct. 17 at the Vancouver Convention Centre. “The Silver Award winners are true leaders in the industry,” said Keith Sashaw, Vancouver Regional Construction Association president. “They all represent companies that were able to bring projects of the highest calibre in, on time and on budget.” The total number of entrants and projects considered in this year’s competition was up over last year, rising to 267 entrants and 67 projects in 2012 from 218 entrants and 43 projects in 2011. During the 24 years the competition has been in place, the value of the

projects has grown tremendously, and the total value of projects considered in this year’s competition represented $2 billion of construction throughout B.C., up 60 per cent from last year’s total, showing that the impact of the 2009 economic downturn on the competition is over with many top quality projects in contention. “The judges were extremely impressed with the high quality of the projects nominated, and have decided to introduce a new category to the competition this year,” said Tony Everett, chairman of the adjudication committee. ” Vernon Morningstar

Demystifying what is known as the representation letter

I

n the last issue of this column, I talked about the engagement letter for an engagement for a corporation. I just want to mention that if you require formal financial statements for a partnership or a sole proprietorship, you will also need to sign an engagement letter in the same format as for a corporation. After the financial statements have been compiled, the review or the audit completed, there are a few things that the accountant requires from you to complete the engagement. The first would be the signatures on the tax returns and the financial statements. This would indicate that you are in agreement with the work and format of the financial statements prepared for you. Payment of the fees if that was covered in the engagement letter. The other document is called the representation letter. This letter is quite similar for all three types of engagements, the notice to reader, the review and the audit. If at all possible, it should be done up on your letterhead and you can have the accountant send you the letter electronically to print at your office, or you can

BEHIND THE COUNTER

Gabriele Banka bring some letterhead to the accountant’s office. This letter serves to confirm in writing the implied and oral representations made by you to the accountant during the engagement and to reduce the possibility of any misunderstandings concern-

ing any of the representations made. The letter is usually addressed to the accountant that is the principle contact on the file. The first item is to readdress that no audit or review was performed and that there is no assurance given on the validity, accuracy or completeness of the statements. In other words, the accounts were analysed at a high level and not in detail. The next item is to make sure that you, the client, have approved any and all changes that we have proposed and made

to your data on our published financial statements. We, as accountants, don’t adjust or do anything to your database, but we take a copy of your database into our system and make the changes there. Then we give those changes back to you by way of journal entries for you to update your database. Because the financial statements are your responsibility, we need you to understand the journal entries made, any accounts that we may have added or any changes that we have made.

E

very entrepreneur I meet while pursuing the activities of our Entrepreneurs Society or conducting research for this column brings to me new excitement, knowledge and experience. The joy I receive cannot be easily explained but offers a means to give of myself to others and at the same time enjoy the success of those valley entrepreneurs who embrace positive change in their lives. Earlier this year, my daughter insisted I visit a quaint consignment shop in Kelowna, with the catchy name—Furniture Heaven. So, on a day out with my wife I went and was truly amazed by the wonderful pieces of quality furniture products, home décor items and particularly, the congenial demeanour of the sales staff. “We’ll be back” resonated in my mind searching rapidly for a legitimate excuse to visit again in a more buying

ENTREPRENEURIAL SPIRIT

Joel Young mindset. Well, as we all know only too well, sometimes things are meant to be. I received an email from Glo McKinnon, proprietor of Furniture Heaven, who drew reference to one of my columns and to which I quickly complimented her on her store and the positive words I had been hearing from acquaintances. Shortly thereafter, I entered Furniture Heaven on Banks Road east, in Kelowna, quite early before any of you remotely began your day and upon entering the store was overwhelmed with the beautiful furniture display at the entrance. Glo McKinnon met me, offered me an early morning coffee and our visit began.

3

The world is not that large folks and Glo informed me she was born in Thunder Bay, Ontario, had two entrepreneurial sisters and parents who were in the music industry business with her mother having a television show in Saskatoon in the past. (Guess where I moved from to the Okanagan) Glo took a business course and entered the secretarial world finally deciding on the Okanagan when she was 29 years old. She had then entered the furniture sales world at Sears where her passion for decorating and entrepreneurship took root. While working at Sears, she excelled in its “Whole Home University” course specializing in interior design. She then tacked the federal government’s Community Futures Business Plan Program, arriving at the crossroad of becoming an Okanagan entrepreneur. Glo launched her dream venture in February 2002, Furniture Heav-

en, with the tag line that I think is priceless “ Upscale Home Furnishings at Gently-Used Prices” With her love of entrepreneurship, she quickly became a nominee for Rising Star Awards at the 17th annual Business Awards in 2005 in Kelowna. Her son Scott has joined his mother in the mix and with his experience in marketing, advertising and graphic design ads a powerful punch to the mother-son entrepreneurial imagery of this venture. Scott is a sculptor and professional magician and is involved in many valley-wide events and occasions bringing joy and laughter to all whom he touches with his skills. Alright Valley consumers and appreciators of the entrepreneurial dream machine, time to check out the over 5,000-square- feet of showrooms of Furniture Heaven at 435 Banks Rd. East in Kelowna and discover your new home

décor treasure plus you can exam this venture via Castanet, their web site at www.FurnitureHeaven. net and be mindful that referral are Glo and Scott’s best promotional highway. So whether you have furniture you are ready to part with or you are looking for that special unique item as the “forever” item, I encourage you to visit Furniture Heaven and don’t hesitate to ask Glo about her thoughts on your home decorating ideas. She focuses the abundance of her skills on servicing the customer in her store and takes considerable pride in having you enjoy the experience as a Furniture Heaven customer and this fact has remained quite fixed in my mind as I examine my next purchase.

be included in the financial statements. 4. That you have reviewed these completed financial statements and realize that you are responsible for their content. Again, now is the time to ask for any explanations. 5. That the statements disclose all the significant assets, liabilities and expenses of the corporation; perhaps a relative loaned you some money – that should be recorded as a liability in the corporation. 6.

The diabetes epidemic Anita Creamer CONTRIBUTOR

Just as North America’s diabetes epidemic began almost two decades ago, Georgia Richardson was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, the potentially life-threatening illness that affects the body’s ability to process blood sugar. “To be honest, I was in denial about my diabetes for awhile,” she said. “It’s as if I thought, ‘Maybe it will go away,’ even though I knew it wouldn’t.” Now 77, Richardson, a retired Sacramento, Calif., teacher, eventually reduced her weight and began an exercise regimen. But she admits she lost valuable time embracing the necessary lifestyle changes that can help combat the disease. “We need to look at things people don’t want to face,” she said, “and diabetes is one of them.” If extending longevity was the signature public health achievement of the 20th century, many experts believe that conquering obesity and type 2 diabetes—conditions that often go hand in hand —will be the key public health challenge of the 21st.

“It’s a largely self-inflicted problem,” said Dr. John Bissell, chief of neurology at Kaiser Permanente South Sacramento Medical Center. “And there are huge public health problems as a result.” While doctors also worry about the rise of type 2 diabetes in younger people, an aging population—driven in large part by the enormous population wave of the baby boom generation—is by definition a country coping with a diabetes problem. Older age is one of the main risk factors for the disease, along with obesity, poor exercise habits, certain ethnic backgrounds and genetic predisposition. Left unchecked, the diabetes epidemic will result in higher medical costs as well as the threat of shortened life spans for younger generations. It also raises the possibility that for people already 65 and older, their elderly years could become a time of chronic, painful consequences. Type 2 diabetes is the leading cause of kidney failure, new cases of blindness and amputation for reasons other than

trauma. It’s a top contributor to high blood pressure, stroke and heart attacks, and it’s been linked with the development of dementia. In short, the disease makes older age exponentially more difficult than it needs to be. “The dementia link is significant,” said Bissell, “but I don’t think that’s well understood by people with diabetes. They have so many other health problems, and they have so many people beating on them about their weight because of those health problems.” Millions of North Americans age 65 and older have type 2 diabetes, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control. An additional half of all people in that demographic are pre-diabetic, with blood sugar levels high enough to cause concern. Already, one of every 10 adult Californians has type 2 diabetes, according to California Diabetes Program data, and one of every three state residents is pre-diabetic. Without a major public health awakening, health officials in the U.S. project that one-third of all Americans will have the disease

by mid-century. “We see the effects of the diabetes epidemic every day,” said Dr. Kimberly Buss, Sutter Medical Foundation’s medical director of diabetes education. “We used to get 100 new cases referred to us every month. Now it’s 400 or 500 a month. “And as the proportion of people 65 and older goes up, the total prevalence of diabetes will increase.” Type 2 diabetes results when the body can’t produce the hormone insulin or when it has become resistant to the insulin it produces. (Weight and inactivity help create

insulin problems, though researchers don’t know why.) Without insulin to whisk glucose into the cells for use as energy, damaging levels of sugar build up in the bloodstream. Many people develop excessive thirst, fatigue, blurred vision, darkened neck folds and other symptoms that lead them to seek help. But many, like Richardson, have few symptoms before routine blood work provides diagnosis. The good news is that unlike type 1 diabetes— an autoimmune disorder with onset in childhood— type 2 diabetes often can

be prevented by healthy lifestyle habits: walking 30 minutes five times each week and eating a balanced diet. It’s a simple solution to the epidemic. But by the millions, people don’t do it. “We have more sedentary jobs now,” said Dr. Debra Bakerjian, a University of California-Davis Nursing School adjunct professor and president of geriHealthsolutions, a long-term care consulting firm. “We work long hours, and many people commute. “It’s hard to work exercise in there—most of us don’t have jobs that al-

low us to be mobile. And with the time crunch, we lean toward fast food.” The consequences are steep. Type 2 diabetes cannot be cured, though evidence indicates weight loss surgery might help reverse it. Generally, with diligence, the illness can be managed, so complications never occur. Consider the toll of unmanaged blood sugar, beyond amputation, kidney and heart disease and vision problems. Damage to the peripheral nerves, which control the body except the brain and spinal cord, can cause pain in the extremities until people can’t walk.

Greater still—and certainly longer-lasting—is the pride and joy of watching your grandchildren play, and learn and grow

into accomplished scholars and professionals. Since it’s a full-time job keeping up with changing tastes and the latest trends in toys, the next time a birthday or holiday rolls around, consider giving your grandchildren the gift of education. Registered Education Savings Plans (RESPs)

are a simple and effective way to give students a leg up when it comes time to enroll in post-secondary education. “Eighteen years from now, the costs of a university education, including tuition, room and board is expected to top $100,000,” said Peter Lewis, a vicepresident with the Canadian Scholarship Trust

Foundation (CST), one of the leading providers of RESPs in Canada. “This is just one reason why it’s so important for families to invest in RESPs early and regularly,” he said. “According to the federal government, 70 per cent of the new jobs being created in Canada require a post-secondary educa-

tion,” he said. By investing in RESPs, you’ll also teach your grandchildren a very important lesson about the value of a long-term savings strategy for big expenses like a car, a home, or even their own retirement. So what’s the best way to climb the $100,000 mountain? “That’s the

$64,000 question,” said Lewis. “It all depends on your financial situation and expected needs, so it’s important to speak with a knowledgeable RESP professional.” Professionals who specialize in RESPs can counsel you on all the details , including how registered plans can grow tax

free , and the several ways the government will add to your investment and increase its value. Piece by piece, it all adds up. They say it takes a village to raise a child, but who needs a village when there are grandparents? NewsCanada

Daycare shortage in Central Okanagan eases slightly with opening of two new centres

Bobbi-Sue Menard

CONTRIBUTOR

A shortage of daycare spaces in Kelowna has been a problem for years. But the problem is now 140 spaces closer to being solved. Edleun, a company out of Alberta, has opened two new daycare facilities in the Central Okanagan, one in Kelowna and the other in West Kelowna. The company is well known in the daycare world, is publicly traded and has the capacity to offer er a specific curriculum rriculum and extras including uding a full full, dietician-designed meal plan. The Lawrence Learning Centre in Kelowna is located in a fully renovated and repurposed building that used to house the Ke-

lowna Bhuddist temple on Lawrence Avenue. The building is now ultra kid-friendly starting with the primary coloured-scheme paint job of bright blue, green, yellow and red. There is a brand new playground and the centre is licensed and meets the same stan-

dards as Edleum’s centres in Alberta, which are are accredited under the only accreditation program over and above provincial licensing in the country.

The Kelowna centre also offers part-time care, a bonus for parents who either work part-time or have overlapping shift work. The hours are parent friendly and the staff are all fully trained. The West Kelowna location was a childcare facility operating as Monkey’s PlayM house that has maintained the same location on Brown Road. With more spaces taken prior to the name change of the location, the West Kelowna Edleun still welcomes inquiries co for all ages and stages of chil childcare. As a company with dozens of day care cendozen tres ac across Canada, Edleun has the capEdleu acity to t offer services that sm smaller centres tend to avoid.

It is an approach that the company says frees moms and dads from the morning routine of preparing brown-bag lunches, plus snacks, for their children, while delivering food that is low in sugar, salt and unnecessary fats. Edleun’s main child care philosophy is based on learning-centered care. There is a full curriculum designed for each age and for each stage of childhood. The name Edleun is a custom acronym for Education Learning Uni-

Canadian parents have declared mornings the hardest over any other time of day. Six out of 10 Canadian moms and dads say morning is the most stressful period of the day, according to the results of a new poll conducted by Ipsos Reid. So how does a tiny fraction of the day become the time so many dread? • Breakfast a priority, skipped by majority: While 93 per cent of those polled say making sure everyone eats breakfast is a top morning priority, six out of 10 say at least one family member skips the morning meal at least once a week. • Gluttons for guilt: Half of parents feel guilt in the morning, driven by failing to serve up a nutritious breakfast at home. • The “me time” advantage: Moms and dads who reported spending less time getting themselves ready and more time focused on the family were more likely to call mornings the most stressful time of day. “I know how crazy and chaotic the morning can be, especially at back-to-school time” says Andrea Holwegner, a registered dietitian and mother of one. Holwegner has compiled her best tips and ideas for doing so into Breakfast Cereals Canada’s Morning Crunch Time “Thrival” Guide (download it at www.morningcrunchtime.ca).

Sun pick up slack to down Broncos Kevin Parnell STAFF REPORTER

Heading into Sunday’s B.C. Football Conference clash against Kamloops, Okanagan Sun coach Gavin Lake had tagged it as a must-win game. On Sunday in Kamloops, his troops delivered with a convincing 35-7 win over the Broncos, earning the Sun’s first win of the season after a season-opening loss to Langley. “We made a positive step,” said Lake. “We are heading in the right direction. Are we close to where we need to be? No. But given where we were during the exhibition games and in week one, we saw clear progress and that’s what we are looking for.” Bobby Davis ran for a pair of touchdowns to lead the Sun offense, which exploded for 21 points in the second quarter to break the game open. A former Sun quarterback, Davis plunged into the endzone from under centre two times in the final five minutes of the opening half. “We definitely looked

more crisp and the chemistry was more evident than in the last two weeks,” said Davis after the game. “I think we’re definitely moving in the right direction.” The Sun stumbled out of the gates in its opening BCFC game, losing 4214 at home to Langley to open the year. Lake says there is still lots to work on, heading into a road game in Nanaimo, against the defending BCFC champion Vancouver Island Raiders. “We have to do a better

team that has upset Nanaimo at home in seven year so it’s going to be a difficult task. I think our guys love a challenge and will respond well.” On Sunday the Sun defense was stifling as it

shut down Kamloops for much of the game. Kamloops’ lone score came on its final drive of the game. Defensive end Steven Doege led the defense with two sacks, several tackles and a fumble re-

covery. The Sun are on the road until Sept. 8, when they will return to the Apple Bowl to play the Westshore Rebels. Following this weekend’s game against the

Raiders, Okanagan will get a chance to rebound against Langley when they play the Rams Aug. 25 in Langley. kparnell @kelownacapnews.com

SPORTS ▟ KGCC MEN’S OPEN

Pitt slams door on challengers Kevin Parnell STAFF REPORTER

Coming down the back nine at the Kelowna Golf and Country Club’s Men’s Open on Sunday, Tyler Pitt appeared to open the door to a few challengers. But just as quickly as back-to-back bogey’s trimmed Pitt’s lead to just one, the Gallagher’s Canyon golfer slammed the door shut with birdies on 16 and 18 to win the men’s open by two strokes over Keith Yamaoka, Keith Martin and Jason Monteleone. “I tried to get a little too cute,� said Pitt of the bogeys on 14 and 15 at the Kelowna Golf and Country Club. “But I played the last three holes tremendously well. I felt

like I played pretty solid all weekend. I was hitting greens in regulation and when I didn’t I was able to get up and down.� In the end Pitt, 31, carded a pair of two-under-par rounds to claim his second Men’s Open championship after also claiming the title in 2007. A Canadian Tour player from from ‘07 to 2011, Pitt says he’s very happy with the way he played and to get his name on the men’s open trophy. “There are lots of legends on those trophies, guys that have been around,� he said. “It’s always fun to win. I’m happy. I just have to take my mistakes and improve on my game.� The three players that tied for second all tried to make late charges but fell

short. Yamoaka had birdies on 16 and 17 but made a bogie on the par 5 18th to finish at 2 under par. KGCC member Monteleone also had an opportunity to close the gap but bogeyed hole 17 and narrowly missed his eagle on 18 to also finish at 2 under par. Martin, the 2012 Ogopogo champion, started his day one shot back of Pitt but experienced some difficulty and fell back to over par. Then he made a spectacular eagle on the 16th hole to get back to red numbers and a birdie on 18 to finish two shots back at 2 under par. Winning the Overall Low Net Division with a total score of 6 under par (138) was Point Grey Golf

& CC member Ryan Mulhern to edge out Kelowna Golf & Country Club member Wayne Schaeffer by one shot. Corey Biccum of Shannon Lake earned himself $5,000 cash when he nailed a hole in one on the par 3 second hole. KGCC general manager David Walker said it was an excellent weekend of golf. “Overall the tournament was a tremendous success and a great time was had by all 172 players,� said Walker. “The course was in magnificent condition with some saying it was the best they had ever seen it. Thank you to all of the volunteers, staff and members of the course for making it all happen.� kparnell@kelownacapnews.com

Down by 8, ‘slugfest’ ensues Fastball from A22 mering Edmonton 15-0. “We knew our team was back in the hunt, but we weren’t sure we would make the playoffs,� said Light. On Saturday morning Kelowna improved to 3-3 with a narrow 2-1 win over Manitoba. That got them into a four way tie for the fourth and final playoff position and led to two tie-breaker games. Against Surrey in the first tie breaker, Kelowna’s run looked over when their B.C. rivals scored eight times in the first inning to take an 8-0 lead. But in what Light described as a slugfest, Kelowna would battle back and eventually win 14-13 in extra innings.

said that was the best ball game they have ever seen, and they’ve watched a lot of ball,� said Light. Next up was another tie breaker against Strathmore, a team that had hammered Kelowna on the opening day. This time however it was the Heat’s turn to pound out a win and a 7-0 decision sent Kelowna into the playoffs. The next morning however, the engines finally stalled, as Calgary beat the Heat 11-8, placing the local team in 4th and ending the Heat’s season just out of the medals. “Our girls real-

ly played hard in those tie-breaker games,� said Light. “They were a solid ball team all year round. We had a lot of fun, we won some tournaments and we had a good year. We just fell short of medaling at westerns and provincials. The Kelowna Heat players are: Lora Micki, Brett Needham, Meghan McCreight, Hayden Craig, Taylor Bengret, Taylor Kathler, Candace Hamilton, Tessa Barbour, Julia Lambert, Shae Skarbo, Devin Ramwell and Maria Brooker. kparnell @kelownacapnews.com

Round up of men’s soccer play Play continued last week in the Kelowna Men’s Soccer League. In Division 1 play, Woody’s Pub picked up a much needed 2-1 win over Kon Kast Stallions. Kon Kast opened the scoring after a cross from a free kick was converted by Mike Gomes. Kon Kast would keep the lead until half-time when Denny Goncalves chipped the Kon Kast keeper to even the score 1-1. It would be a great individual effort by Chris Bent that would seal the deal for Woody’s after he collected him own rebound and buried it top corner. In other action Brandt’s Creek Pub FC picked up another win, their 11th in a row, to keep pace with league-leading Pikey’s. Rene Trozzo opened the scoring for the Pubbers via a great long distance chip before Lewis Morris drew even for the Aliens from a free kick. A 20 yard blast from Kyle Bilinski ten minutes into the second half would turn out to be the game winner, which was followed up by

a penalty kick converted by Matt Arruda, and finally, a pin-point cross from Arruda to Ben Goward would round out the scoring, 4-1 Brandt’s. Modern Furniture Pikey’s all but locked up first place with one game remaining in the division with a 3-0 win over Subcity/ Executive Flooring. Subcity put up a valiant effort holding the league leaders to a stalemate in the first half, however three unanswered goals in the second half from Pikey’s would be their undoing. Ecora FC locked up third place in the division with a 6-0 trouncing of SOB FC. With the win, Ecora will match up against LCSC Woody’s Pub in the first round of the playoffs on Aug. 28.

DIVISION 2 Euro FC overtook the idle Invisi-Bulls for first place in division two with a win over YOLO FC, 3-2. After a player from each team took a red card in the first half, the 1-1 scoreline at half-time would set-up for an epic finish. Mitch

Brown would put YOLO ahead with his first goal of the season, before Euro’s Mike Janz got one back to even the score with 15 minutes to play in the game. Euro, needing the win to pull into first place, would push forward and get the winner off a later header by Tom Johns to take sole possession of the division lead with the Euro and the Bulls set to meet in the second last game of the season. Spartan Metal would win a barnburner over LCSC Athletics, 7-5. A hat-trick by LCSC’s Saverio Tumato would not be enough as Spartan came back from a two goal deficit for the win. Goals from Spartan Metal would come from Develyn Barker (2), Dylan Vicaretti, Matt Bayley (2), Laurence Kidd, and Craig Tostensen. Lifeworks Chiropractic would pull out a miraculous come-from-behind victory, 5-4, over Iris Optometry Wave FC. After Iris jumped out to a 4-0 lead through goals from Nic Race, Matt Shay (2), and Dustin Koepke, Life-

However, things got worse for Lifeworks as they were reduce to 10 men after taking a red card, however this seemed to spark them as they scored 4 unanswered goals to pull out the much needed win to take over 3rd place from FBFC. FBFC gave up the 3rd place spot with a 3-2 loss to Gunners FC. Lawrence Woodmore would score a pair and Max Eisner would add a single in the win for the Gunners, while Kyle Gabelhei and Randal Wight would get the goals for FBFC. Barcekelona would pick up a lop-sided win over Fresh Air FC, 7-1.

Chiefs open on Sept. 14 The Kelowna Chiefs have released its schedule for the 2012/13 Kootenay International Junior Hockey League season. The Chiefs will open its third regular season in the KIJHL on the road against the Summerland Steam on Friday Sept. 14. Last season the Chiefs dominated the Steam, winning seven of eight games against its Okanagan division rivals. Kelowna will play its home opener the next night hosting the Fernie Ghostriders on Sept. 15 at Rutland Arena. The Chiefs will play a total of 52 regular games this season with an equal share of home and away matches. The Chiefs will once again play their fellow Okanagan/Shuswap Divi-

sion rivals a total of eight games per team. A big difference in this year’s schedule is the Chiefs will face regular season games against teams in the Kootenay Conference: Eddie Mountain Division including the Columbia Valley Rockies, Creston Valley Thunder Cats, and Golden Rockets. The Chiefs begin to assemble this year’s team at their third training camp from Aug. 27 to 29. Kelowna is coming off a solid season in the KIJHL. Last season they finished 26-22-0-4 before getting on a roll in the playoffs winning three series before being knocked out of the playoffs in the championship final, won by the Beaver Valley Nitehawks. They will have some

retooling to do as the team’s top two scorers have both graduated from junior hockey. Dan Rupert and Landon Andrusiak completed their final year of junior hockey, as did fellow 20-year-olds Josh McEwan and Shayne Welker. Rupert led the team with 86 points in 49 games played while Andrusiak put up 73 points in 39 games. The club has 18 potential players eligible to return this season. Notes: The Chiefs are in need of billet families for the upcoming season. Anyone interested in becoming a Chiefs billet family should contact the club at 250-8628020 or email info@ kelownachiefs.com.

KGH Foundation event returns Last year at this time, Walley and Marietta Lightbody broke the news that the 2011 edition of the Celebrity Tennis Classic and Bocce Tournament would be the last. However, after much gentle persuasion from the KGH Foundation, the annual charity event will be returning for its 11th year from Sept. 14 to 16. “This fantastic week-

end of fun, friends and tennis has been a community favourite for over 10 years and has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for the purchase of cardiac equipment at the Kelowna General Hospital,” said Doug Rankmore, CEO of the KGH Foundation. “We are very excited to see its return”. All levels of tennis players are welcome, with

the jam-packed weekend featuring: a wine and cheese reception, opening ceremonies, celebrity tennis matches and the infamous doctors versus lawyers match, a bocce tournament, a gala dinner with renowned silent auction, and lots of tennis. This year the event will be honouring tennis enthusiasts Roger Watts, Jennifer Hindle and Bert

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, confirmed promoter Willi Jahnke. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re pretty much restructuring here but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not running away,â&#x20AC;? he said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and we want to stay and we want to make it work.â&#x20AC;? Jahnke said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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 2729 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. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Besides the attendance, the show was really well done,â&#x20AC;? Jahnke said. The event also seemed to please the City of Penticton, which engaged in a â&#x20AC;&#x153;collaborative processâ&#x20AC;? with neighbours prior to the event, said communications officer 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-parking-only areas around Kings Park. Still, Blais said the city received â&#x20AC;&#x153;really positive reportsâ&#x20AC;? from festival-goers and â&#x20AC;&#x153;it seems like weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve addressed most of the residentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; concerns.â&#x20AC;? 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: â&#x20AC;&#x153;New kids on the block are always taken with caution, especially as Penticton didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a positive track record when it comes to festivals.â&#x20AC;? Data collected from ticket buyers showed about 60 per cent of the audience came from outside the region, Jahnke said, and he thinks that figure could go higher. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just a matter or tapping into that and proving to people this is really a festival worth coming to.â&#x20AC;? Organizers also noted complaints about high prices and found most people preferred singleday 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. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Will there be adjustments? Absolutely. There has to be,â&#x20AC;? 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. Penticton Western

Fancy is a very inquisitive cat. She loves to follow people around the room and ‘help out’.

6 YEARS DOMESTIC SHORT HAIR SPAYED FEMALE

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.

CUISINE from Jude’s kitchen 'baby' foods We’re enjoying the first young and tender corn on the cob of the season now, as well as sweet, tender baby beans and carrots. And, there are lots of zucchini out in the garden and at the farmers’ markets and farm stands. They come in every size because one day they’re baby ones that are delicious and cute in stir-fries or briefly browned on the barbecue, and the next they’re mammoth creatures, good for hollowing out and stuffing with herbs and ground lamb or grating up for zucchini cake. However you serve them, this is the season to load up on your fruit and vegetables, with all sorts of tender, sweet baby-sized ones around. I also love Greek salads at this time of year, with young cucumbers and peppers, sweet tomatoes and onions, fresh basil, oregano and tart feta cheese to top it all off. What a meal. What can taste like cardboard in winter, is a heavenly mix of different flavours at this time of year, when everything is fresh from the garden—yours or someone else’s. I admit it’s hard to pick favourites at this time of year, but baby new potatoes are right up there on my list, along with tomatoes that taste just like tomatoes! And, all those fresh herbs that add such flavour to the simplest of meals are like green gold at this time of year for anyone who loves to cook—or eat. Young lamb is now available from local ranches and farms too, and there's nothing quite like it. In writing my book about letting what’s local and seasonal inspire you in your everyday meals, I found it difficult to hold back on the number of recipes for the summer and fall chapters, simply because they are such inspirational seasons with all the fresh ingredients calling out to you. Jude’s Kitchen is available at bookstores as well as many shops where you can purchase our excellent local wines. Many of the 200 or so recipes include local wine pairing suggestions as margin notes by renowned wine writer John Schreiner.

Chocolate Zucchini Cake No one will realize they’re eating their vegetables in this flavourful cake. You may make this in two loaf pans instead of the big round bundt pan with the trademark hole in the middle, and freeze one for a later date. 1/2 c. (125 ml) butter 1/4 c. (60 ml) oil 1 1/2 c. (375 ml) sugar 2 large eggs 1 tsp. (5 ml) vanilla 2 1/4 c. 560 ml) flour 3/4 c. (175 ml) cocoa 1 tsp. (5 ml) baking powder 1 tsp. (5 ml) baking soda 1/2 tsp. (2 ml) salt 1 c. (250 ml) plain yogurt 2 c. (250 ml) grated unpeeled zucchini 3/4 c. (175 ml) chocolate chips Preheat oven to 325°F and spray a bundt pan or two loaf pans with an oil spray.

In a large bowl, beat the butter, oil and sugar on high speed with an electric mixer for two or three minutes, until thick and pale yellow. Beat in the eggs and vanilla. In a smaller bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add a third of the dry ingredients to the butter mixture and beat just until blended; add half the yogurt and do the same. Repeat with another third of the flour mixture, the rest of the sour cream, then the rest of the flour. Fold in the zucchini and chocolate chips and pour the thick batter into the pan or pans, smoothing the top. (I like to add a few more chocolate chips to the top). Bake for an hour, until the top is cracked and springy to the touch. Turn out onto a plate or cake stand while still warm. Serves 8-16.

JUDIE STEEVES / CAPITAL NEWS

Exotic Lamb Chops With the flavours of lemon and mint, ginger and curry, this is an unusual way to serve lamb, but one inspired by the fusion of a variety of cultures and one we found worked very well. With local lamb now ready for the barbecue, it’s terrific to be able to serve it with baby vegetables fresh from the garden as well. We enjoyed a glass of the Mission Hill Family Estate Pinot Noir with this; an excellent match with its peppery berry flavours and the exotic spicy taste of the tender lamb. 4 lamb steaks or chops freshly-ground sea salt and black pepper 1/2 large lemon 3 tbsp. (45 ml) fresh mint 1 tbsp. (15 ml) fresh ginger 1/2 tsp. (2 ml) brown sugar 1/2 tsp. (2 ml) garam masala

Liberally grind fresh black pepper over both sides of the chops and add a sprinkle of sea salt. In a glass bowl or casserole that will hold all the lamb, finely zest half a large lemon, mince the fresh mint and ginger and add the sugar and spice. Combine well, then add each chop, turning it to coat with the marinade. Leave in the marinade for an hour or two, if possible, before barbecuing. Barbecue over high heat for five to seven minutes a side, depending on thickness, or until still pink inside. Enjoy with the first baby vegetables of the season, such as peas, carrot thinnings and nugget potatoes. Serves 4.
