PEACHFEST A TREAT FOR EVERYONE Steve Waldner Western News Staff

The end of August means two things in Penticton: another summer winding down and another Penticton Peach Festival come and gone until next year, when it will again be back to entertain locals and tourists alike. This year’s event represented the event’s 65th anniversary, and as be¿tting such a milestone, was the best yet, said Don Kendall, the festival’s president. “We couldn’t be happier. We thought it was a great festival. The comments we’ve got have all been positive,” he said. Kendall attributed the festival’s success to two things. The ¿rst, being a free festival with what he described as spectacular entertainment and the second, that the festival strives to be a genuine familyfriendly event. “A lot of events bill themselves as family events, but this is truly a family event,” he said. “We get people that come back from different parts of Canada year after year, and they like the theme of having a family event.” Over the years, the event has grown, hitting a new high this year, said Kendall. “We believe it’s the largest crowd (we’ve had) in history,” he said. “The Peach Festival we used to have one or two, maybe three nights with big crowds, but we had ¿ve nights with big crowds.” The crowds certainly had good reason to pack Okanagan Lake Park, where the stage played host to well-known bands Lighthouse and 54-40. However, the event also showcased over 20 local acts, such as Nikita Afonso and Dale Seaman,

whom Kendall described as “highlights.” Aside from bringing local artists into the spotlight and providing ¿ve days of free entertainment to the city, the festival brings more subtle bene¿ts in the form of tourist dollars. Between the long weekend and Peachfest, August is a busy month for the hospitality and tourism industries in the city. However, Peachfest brings a marked difference in the crowds venturing to Penticton.

“There’s de¿nitely more families,” said Fernanda Ladeira, manager at the Penticton Slumber Lodge. “People that come for Peachfest are more family-oriented. They bring their kids to the parades and that sort of thing.” The inÀux of families brings an important boost to the local economy. “When we have so many tourists travelling to the area for something like Peachfest, they’re staying in our hotels and eating out at restaurants, which is exactly what we’re

hoping they’ll do,” said Tracy Reis, marketing specialist with Penticton and Wine Country Tourism. “The bene¿ts are widespread throughout the community and through all the businesses here.” Reis said during Peachfest, Penticton’s information centre — a hub for tourists new to the area — saw an increase of 34 per cent, compared to last year’s festival. As well, Reis tracked the festivals’ presence on social media, and liked what she saw. “It was all really, really positive,

people saying things like, ‘Penticton was awesome,’ and just talking about how great Peachfest was and what a memorable time it was,” she said. This positive reÀection of the community on social media is extrememly important, said Reis, as more and more people are relying on social media feedback to help them plan their vacations. “Social media is such a driver, so having such great comments like that on our social media sites is so great for Penticton,” she said.

Couple not guilty after RCMP botch warrants Kristi Patton

Western News Staff

How cool is this!

Botched search warrant procedures by Penticton RCMP has led to a not guilty verdict in what a judge called a “sophisticated” marijuana grow operation. Judge Brad Chapman said the rights of Anthony and Jacqueline Prowse were not respected when RCMP arrested the couple and searched their Naramata property on Rounds Road on July 30, 2009. The couple were facing two charges

of possession for the purpose of traf¿cking and one count of production of a controlled substance. In his reasons regarding the search warrants, which were argued during a voire dire, Chapman said RCMP had been following an anonymous tip they received from Crime Stoppers. An investigation ensued and other police sources corroborated the tip. In the application for the ¿rst search warrant, RCMP of¿cer Const. Livingston provide in the

information that the Fortis electricity consumption was three times that of similar dwellings in the area but did not provide the records, only a summary. Also included in the information to obtain a warrant was thermal surveillance that showed high heat signature from the dwelling and a distinct odour from the property. RCMP arrived at the Prowse’s home on July 30, 2009 to search the residence and ¿nd Anthony Prowse in the driveway, who informed

grow operation built underground beneath the concrete patio of the residence. “It would appear the home and outbuildings, in my view, were constructed or renovated for the purpose of a marijuana grow operation,” said Chapman. He said even though he has no doubt the couple were undertaking illegal activity, “the public does expect law enforcement to respect their rights and freedoms.” Chapman concluded that almost all of the information gathered and items seized by police would have to be excluded from the evidence. Crown counsel Tyrone Duerr said in light of this he would have to rest his case, defence for the couple, Neil Cobb then followed suit. “With no evidence before me to prove beyond a reasonable doubt, I ¿nd you not guilty,” said Chapman. In November of 2011, an Olalla couple pled guilty to the cultivation of a controlled substance after they were discovered by police in the outbuilding of the Prowse’s Naramata residence during the drug raid. Michael Young and Karen Stapleton were acting as pruners or clippers to help harvest the marijuana. Young had a prior record for production of an illegal substance and received 18 months house arrest and 120 hours of community service work. Stapleton was sentenced to 12 months of house arrest and 50 hours of community service.

Mounties two people were in the outbuilding. Upon a search of that building for “of¿cer safety,” RCMP discovered a grow operation. Const. Livingstone then had to go back to a Justice of the Peace for a second warrant to search the outbuilding. It was during this time relatives of the Prowse’s had pulled up to the Round Rounds house and testi¿ed that they saw RCMP of¿cers taking black garbage bags from the outbuilding and when asked what was happening an of¿cer said they were “destroying a grow operation.” This was before RCMP had the legal right to search the outbuilding. Also, while RCMP were awaiting the second search warrant both of the Prowse’s were arrested, which Chapman said was unlawful because RCMP could only go off the evidence they had from the ¿rst search warrant. As well, their rights were violated because of the delay in time before they were able to access council. Chapman said from the information he heard it appeared as though the Prowse’s had a sophisticated operation. RCMP had issued a press release after the drug bust stating they found 560 marijuana plants, 49 pounds of cultivated marijuana, $11,000 in cash, grow equipment and other drug traf¿cking paraphernalia that was seized as evidence. RCMP also said at the time that during the search Mounties discovered a passageway leading to an extremely sophisticated bunker-style marijuana

Victim identified in deadly plane crash Joe Fries

Western News Staff

Monday’s fatal plane crash near Peachland came almost two years to the day after a similar tragedy that also had a Penticton connection. One person died and three others were injured Monday afternoon when a Piper PA30 Twin Comanche went down in a wooded area near Brenda Mines west of Peachland. The B.C. Coroners service identi¿ed the deceased as Jayson Dallas Wesley Smith, 30, of Vancouver. Registration letters visible on the plane’s tail section in a news photo of the wreckage match an entry in the Canadian Civil Aircraft Registry. That entry is for a Piper PA30 based in Boundary Bay and co-owned by Rick Zyvitski of Comox and Maplewood Landscaping of Delta. The twin-engine aircraft involved departed from Penticton Regional Airport and was en route to Boundary Bay on the Lower Mainland when its emergency beacon was activated around 3 p.m., according to Capt. Annie Djiotsa, spokesperson for the Royal Canadian Navy search and rescue team that co-ordinated the initial response. Djiotsa said the aircraft’s distress

A PLANE CRASH MONDAY near Peachland happened almost two years to the day since a similar tragedy that also originated in Penticton and resulted in a massive search and rescue effort.

signal was detected by a WestJet plane that was in the area, and the ¿rst emergency responders parachuted down to the scene around 5 p.m. Local rescue workers joined the

effort soon after, and the survivors — two women and one man — were Àown by helicopter to hospitals in Kelowna and Kamloops. “When the time is appropriate, we’re ... going to interview the peo-

ple who survived to look for clues about what happened,” said John Cottreau, a spokesperson for the Transportation Safety Board, which sent two investigators to the site. The TSB also investigated the

circumstances surrounding the Aug. 17, 2010, crash of a Piper PA24 Comanche that went down on Apex Mountain about 15 kilometres southwest of the Penticton airport. The wreckage was found eight days later in rugged terrain. That Àight began in Kelowna and made a stop in Penticton, where two duffel bags of unknown weight were ofÀoaded, before it resumed its trip to Victoria, according to a TSB report later sent to the B.C. Coroners Service. It concluded the single-engine plane, which was overloaded when it left Kelowna, was attempting to climb over a ridge 6,500 feet above sea level when it struck trees just below the summit. The report noted the incident was similar to other nearby crashes when pilots inexperienced with mountain Àying and “unfamiliar with the effects of high temperature and high density on aircraft performance, put themselves in a situation where rising terrain in the Àight path exceeds the climb capability of the aircraft under the prevailing ambient conditions.” Cottreau said it’s “way too early to start speculating” about what may have caused Monday’s crash, which happened about ¿ve km from the site of a Àoat plane crash in May that killed three people.

FOI documents provide insight on prison decision Joe Fries

Western News Staff

Three sites at either end of the Okanagan Valley were short-listed as potential homes for a new jail, but the deciding factors remain locked up in secrecy. The B.C. government eventually settled on a plot in a new business park outside Oliver that’s owned by the Osoyoos Indian Band. Premier Christy Clark made the announcement there in February, and the 360-cell provincial remand centre is expected to open in 2016. Two of the seven sites offered by the Village of Lumby also made the top three, but pitches from the District of Summerland and the Penticton Indian Band did not, according to government documents, and it’s unclear what set those proposals apart from each other or the eventual winner. The evaluation matrix was severed from records about the decision process obtained by the Western

It’s been like pulling teeth trying to get information. — Kathy Corrigan

News through a freedom of information request. The matrix was attached to a December 2011 brie¿ng note to the Minister of Justice and it is therefore considered a matter of cabinet con¿dence. “For a government that says it’s going to be open and transparent ... it’s been like pulling teeth trying to get information,” said B.C. NDP public safety critic Kathy Corrigan. In a statement sent by email, the provincial government’s communications branch said only that “key considerations included project costs, zoning, environmental impacts, accessibility to major trans-

portation routes and the projected completion date.” The short-list of potential sites was included in a package sent to the NDP in response to its own FOI request about the jail, which the party shared with the Western News. Brian Titus, who heads the Osoyoos Indian Band Development Corporation, did not address his winning bid’s merits in an email response to a request for comment. Summerland Mayor Janice Perrino was told by the province that the selection boiled down to infrastructure, and the unserviced plot of Crown land put forward by her

community just didn’t have any. She wasn’t surprised to learn her bid didn’t make the top three: “We knew ours was a stretch.” The FOI documents also indicate the cost of the facility is expected to be higher than the number that was made public. A government press release issued the day of the premier’s announcement referenced the jail’s “estimated construction cost of approximately $200 million.” However, a brie¿ng note sent to the Treasury Board in November 2011 estimated the construction cost at $214 million, and the total capital cost, including items like furniture and equipment, at $273.5 million. And because the B.C. government expects to spend over $50 million on the project, the note said, “a public-private partnership is being considered as the base case.” It goes on to peg the prison’s annual operating cost at $60 million. Titus, from the OIBDC, said the project is expected to go to tender

in the fall, and construction is projected to begin in 2014. On the issue of public acceptance, the November 2011 briefing note also mentioned that local governments in the Okanagan had been petitioning for the jail, which presented a “rare opportunity.” “Gaining local government and community acceptance in the Lower Mainland could take years,” the note continued. Public input on the proposed jail was sought by local governments in each of the communities that put forward bids. In Penticton, a June 2011 referendum found jail opponents outnumbered supporters by a two-to-one margin, and the city then withdrew from the process. The FOI documents also detail an alarming need for a new jail in B.C., because, at present, the “safety of public, staff and inmates is at risk.” Check the Western News on Friday for the second article in this two-part series.

“That means that they are not diagnosed with it until they show up in the emergency room with the complications from it. Then, it is frequently too late.” The tests are inexpensive, Dix continued, and a province-wide program would pay for itself. “At a time when there is pressure on public health spending, prevention is so much better a way,” he said. “These programs pay for themselves by not spending money later.” Dix has a personal interest in seeing the screening program extended province-wide. His mother was diagnosed with colorectal cancer in 1997. She was very fortunate, Dix said to have had it detected early and is still active and healthy, having just retired at age 77. “I hope the Penticton program becomes common place across the province. But until then, I am also encouraging British Columbians between the ages of 50-74, who are most at risk for colorectal cancer, and those with a family history, to connect with their primary care provider about getting screened. I know from personal experience that early detection works, saving lives and health care costs,” said Dix. On this note, the NDP leader launched a public service campaign, including sharing his family’s experience, currently airing with the Canadian Cancer Society and Colorectal Cancer Association of Canada.

While NDP leader Adrian Dix was in Penticton this weekend to meet with supporters and have some fun riding in the Peachfest parade, he also had a serious message he wanted to deliver. It’s an issue Dix said he has been raising everywhere he travels in the province, but is especially important to Penticton. In 2007, Penticton Regional Hospital was selected as one of three centres to participate in a colorectal cancer screening program. Now that the pilot phase is over, Dix is encouraging the province to extend it to a province-wide program, as Ontario already has. “I have been putting pressure on the government for years to do this. Part of the response to that pressure was pilot programs, one of which is in Penticton, which in itself has been very successful,” he said. “It is time to act. The programs themselves here have been so successful and we want that to continue.” Colorectal cancer, according to Dix, is the second leading cause of cancer death. But chances of survival from colorectal cancer can increase to 90 per cent when polyps, where the cancer develops, are found and removed before becoming dangerous tumours, or during the early stages of the disease. However, many don’t discover the cancer until it has progressed. Programs like the Penticton pilot saw home-testing kits sent out to about 30 per cent of at-risk groups. “You would dramatically reduce the number of people dying from this cancer if that number were 60 or 70 per cent,” said Dix. “There was a report in Vernon recently, which is not that dissimilar to Penticton demographically, that shows that 43 per cent of people with colorectal cancer present with it in the emergency room.

Such is certainly the case for the Canada’s Olympic Women’s Soccer team, whose inspirational win came, not in the hoped-for gold medal game, but in the ¿nal bronze round — A bronze medal that is Canada’s ¿rst Summer Games medal in a traditional team sport since the 1936 Berlin Games, when the men’s basketball team won silver. These women sum up all that is best about athletic competition: spirit. This team refused to give up, not after a humiliating last place ¿nish at the World Cup last year, and not after a heartbreaking 4-3 loss in extra time against the U.S. in the semi¿nals Monday. The team was clearly crushed after the loss, but by Friday had put that aside as they headed into a game against the highly-favoured French team. Again, another grueling game, but the squad hung on for a scoreless 90 minutes. Then, two minutes into extra time Diana Matheson drove in the winning goal, and put their team into the record books and Canadian soccer on the international map. But the goal did more than that. In Canada, where sports revolve around hockey, many are surprised to ¿nd that more people play soccer than the national sport. And it is for the upcoming players that the women’s soccer bronze medal win may have its most lasting effect. All those young players have not only an example of where the sport might take them, to the very highest levels of competition, but an example of competitive spirit to show them that it is possible to make a dream reality.

B.C. liquor laws finally effective Here’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 “Àyspeck 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 legalized. And

Tom Fletcher

B.C. Views in fact there have been more violations in private stores, revealed in sting operations run by liquor inspectors. In the year ended March 31, 54 private stores were 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 Àunked. 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 ¿nancial 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 ¿de community” to exist around the store. Meanwhile, the big booze story 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. Govern-

ment 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 government 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 ¿ne for adults serving minors, on the job, at home or as a bootlegger. Parents who provide booze for their own underage 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 justi¿cation remains for government liquor sales.

Congratulations!

to our Salesman of the Month

Basking in Olympic glow I read with disbelief the diatribe aimed at the London Olympics written in Steve Kidd’s column ‘Longing for an Olympic reprieve’ (Aug. 3 issue). Firstly, he states that the competition is held “every couple of years.” Mr. Kidd, one of the things that makes the Olympics the spectacle that it is, is that it is held every four years (two years in between summer and winter games). Then he mentions that all the seats in the stands are empty — actually every single night the Olympic Stadium has been ¿lled to 80,000 capacity (one

Science complements religion

In the recent letter to the editor “No monopoly on freedom,” the writer states that “Christianity (basically the Catholic Church) did everything they could to eliminate any form of scienti¿c research and knowledge.” The letter contains many generalizations, and none of the evidence the writer claims to be “very, known facts.” When cardinal Newman was confronted by such generalizations, and the church’s treatment of Galileo was mentioned, he asked, “Yes, and who else?” Even the Galileo affair was not a simple matter of the church repudiating science. Copernicus, a Catholic priest, had already put forward the theory that the earth revolved around the sun, and he had no problem with the church. In fact he was encouraged by churchmen to publish his book. Galileo came into conÀict mainly because he strayed into theology and biblical interpretation, which is not the scientist’s domain; also depicting the Pope as a simpleton in a play didn’t help. There is also the lesser known fact that many scientists of Galileo’s day did not accept his theories. A short but thoughtful account of the Galileo affair can be found on the Vatican Observatory website. So far removed from being against science, the Vatican built its own observatory, and it is one of the oldest in the world. Today there is also the Ponti¿cal Academy of Sciences, an international body of scientists, which keeps the church informed about the latest scienti¿c research. Both the Vatican Observatory and the Ponti¿cal Academy of Science have extensive websites for more information. On a personal note, I have been going to church (the Catholic Church) for 68 years and the main message, as far as personal behavior is concerned, has been to love God, and my neighbor as myself, and to keep the 10 Commandments as the

million alone applied for tickets for last weekend), and this includes support most nights from the royal family who actually appear to be watching avidly and enjoying events in contrast to what Mr. Kidd says about Her Majesty the Queen. Every day 300,000 people have lined the river watching the boating events — empty seats indeed. While I agree that some of the competitors should not be there (pros), the vast majority of representatives there (Canadians included) dedicate their whole lives training for this event. There are

minimum way to do that. That I fail is not the fault of the message and religion, but my own. I invite anyone with suspicions about what is taught in Church on Sundays to attend and respectfully observe; you could be pleasantly surprised. To get back to my personal experience of the church and science: In the mid-nineteenth century, an American woman, Cornelia Connelly was asked by Pope Gregory XVI to found an order of nuns which would teach the daughters of the working class in England. I spent 10 years in one of their schools, and physics, chemistry, math and biology were part of the curriculum. Religion like anything else — like science — can be misunderstood and used for bad and even evil purposes. Dreadful experiments were carried out in Nazi Germany by universityeducated doctors. Soviet Russia, which tried to abolish all religion, was responsible for 60 million deaths. Things are never so black and white as your writer claims. Both religion and science are meant to be used for the good of mankind, because both are gifts from the Creator. In the words of Pope John Paul the second in his encyclical “Faith and Reason”: “Faith and reason are like two wings on which the human spirit rises to the contemplation of truth; and God has placed in the human heart the desire to know the truth — in a word, to know himself — so that by knowing and loving God, men and women can come to the fullness of the truth about themselves.” If there is a conÀict between science and religion, then the two need to open a dialogue, and that is true in most of our human endeavours. As someone said recently, “In our generation we have lost the art of debate”. Elizabeth Borhi Okanagan Falls

Warning needed for channel

The last week of July my family and I visited Penticton

over 14,000 athletes representing over 200 countries from around the globe at this years Olympics — all striving for the same goal. Instead of picking on a truly global and highly anticipated spectacle, perhaps Mr. Kidd should stick to his armchair watching other ‘global’ North American sports such as NHL, NFL, Nascar or maybe the ‘World Series’ of baseball. There, go and have your reprieve Mr. Kidd — and let the rest of the world carry on as they were.

for a week. On that trip we went on the Okanagan River Channel and had a very bad and scary experience. I have done this activity on my own in previous years and really enjoyed it; this year it was horrible. I should have known we were starting out bad when I asked if a life jacket for my oldest daughter would be a good idea and they said yes. Thank goodness I asked otherwise our trip could have turned out much worse. The channel was very high and the current very strong, after we paid we were left to our own devices, no help or instruction on how to get on the tubes we rented or how to get in the channel. I won’t get into all that happened, other than to say it was scary for me and quite traumatic for my children, I can’t stop thinking, what if? My main reason for writing this letter is to con¿rm that there is no signage about the depth and speed of the water, no warnings what so ever, again, it was me who had to ask if lifejackets were a good idea! On the beaches, you have signs every 10 feet stating drop offs and no lifeguard, while there is nothing at the river channel. It is likely privately owned, but your city and mayor knows what a draw it is for your community and should be putting something in effect to ensure people know the risks. I had no business being on that ride with my children and I will never do it again. I watched hundreds of people over the next few days getting ready to get in the water there, countless children included and actually felt sick to my stomach, wondering if they knew the conditions and possible outcomes. I hope that you will publish my letter and get some warnings/signage posted so people can make an informed choice before entering the channel, I certainly would not have gone if I had been told the depth and strength of the water before entering Jilian North Abbotsford

B.C.’s future at stake

This is in response to Mr. Barillaro’s response to my letter. First, may I say that I am aware of the issues (child poverty, etc.), and my concern for our province is based not on the heart but on the mind, ie. how we will fare in the coming years if the NDP get in. As far as the mega jobs promised, when we consider the world economy, it had to play a part on that promise. As we are a province that counts on sales of our natural resources and the demand drops through the Àoor it matters not who is at the helm. Question: How would your B.C. First party do things differently? As a senior who is very concerned about where we are heading in this province, may I suggest that you and your party remind people of all the foolish things the NDP did rather than sit back and snipe at our premier. And yes, I’m doing my homework before the next election — you can bet on that. Bernard Miron Penticton

Recycling policy shows hypocrisy resources we have. There have been great efforts of involvement, lobbying, organizing, protesting, policy making, legalizing and promoting this concept of responsible stewardship. There have even been books and articles published concerning individuals who retrieved enough discarded building materials from a municipal dump to build a house of average size within the regulations of a formal government approved building code. Yet, it would seem

If Aboriginals from the few yet-to-be-tainted wilderness areas were to wander into our “civilized” human world and take a short time to sociologically study our “modern” history, they might be shocked to discover our persistent pattern of hypocrisy of attitudes and behaviour. For 50 years, and some would argue that it began long earlier than that, there has been a social and political concern regarding recycling, reuse, reclaiming and ef¿ciently using the basic

long as signs are posted clearly stating that it is the responsibility of the retriever to use, remake and discard any such items as may be removed in a safe, orderly, and non-objectionable manner to other community members, why should such an ecologically friendly activity be considered less than honourary? If the items are on the ¿eld in front of a bulldozer blade which is intended to bury it, how different is that from store goods which have been deemed unusable by the store owners and discarded outside the store into a dumpster. It could be argued, legally, that once in the dumpster, or before the bulldozer blade, ownership of the items has been released to the community, generally, and to anyone willing to take responsibility for such ownership, use, modi¿cation-creation-art, sale, or other responsible disposition. A clearer and more widely known policy concerning these disLONG ENGLISH carded items and the ways in which such will be encouraged to be recycled, both by individual efforts as well as government and privately owned services, would lessen the confusion arising from the assumption, both incorrectly and in conÀict, of who is responsible for what and to what extent — as well as who has ownership of whatever, until when, how and where.

that two statements of conviction now suggest that a portion of the Penticton inhabitants have regressed to stone age immaturity. First, it suddenly seems acceptable to convict any person who has anything in their possession which they may have not paid for. There has been nothing in the details I have read that stated that the individual being targeted for such misdeeds of scavenging was actually seen to have removed the items and placed them into his truck, either immediately before they were about to buried, or earlier. Does this mean that if I am in a hardware store parking lot and someone sees that I have building materials in my trunk that I have stolen them? I guess the thought that I might have purchased them elsewhere, perhaps not unloaded them yet from another day, or was gifted them by a friend or associate who had more than they needed is just too extreme, to consider. Secondly, if a Municipal dump/land¿ll is receiving reusable items of any description and only has a policy of burying them, it is an af¿rmation that such a municipality has either not set policies and provided recycling alternatives for these items, or, that such provision or services and enforcement, is incompetent and negligent through the open deception that the community is supposed to have something, which it clearly does not.

NICE TO LUV YOU — 54-40 lead singer Neil Osborne soaks in the crowd’s energy at the jampacked Okanagan Lake Park on Friday evening. The Canadian band was the headliner for the Penticton Peach Festival that night sponsored by Peter Bros. Paving.

TV show on location in Osoyoos Western News Staff

A hit ABC television series has chosen the Osoyoos area as one of its locations for its second season. “It is great for the Okanagan to be chosen as a location by a high pro¿le series like Once Upon A Time and it will also be great for the region to get the international exposure from the reach of the viewer audiences,” said Okanagan Film Commissioner Jon Summerland. Once Upon A Time is a story that centers on a woman with a troubled past who is drawn into a small town in Maine where the magic and mystery of fairy tales just may be real. Co-creators/executive producers of the television series, Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz, are two of the master storytellers behind Lost and Tron:Legacy.

The series stars Ginnifer Goodwin (Big Love), Jennifer Morrison (House), Robert Carlyle (Trainspotting, SGU:Stargate Universe), Lana Parrilla (Boomtown, Spin City), Josh Dallas (Thor), Jared Gilmore (Mad Men), Emilie de Ravin (Lost) and Meghan Ory (Vampire High). This spring the Okanagan Film Commission has brought several productions to the Okanagan including A Mother’s Nightmare and a Bollywood production Saadi Wakhri Hai Shaan. A Stanley Cup history ¿lm was shot in Penticton recently in Memorial Arena and will be a 3D feature at the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto, scheduled to open in November. “Productions are becoming aware of the stunning scenery we have to offer in the Okanagan and when we have a studio they will also be able to use and collect tax credits. It will be a win-win,” said Summerland.

Lyricists ready to be named rap champ Western News Staff

Lyricists armed with a quick tongue are hoping to rhyme their way to the top to be crowned the Mad Melody Records battle rap champion. The title match, between current reigning champion Kit (Carson Kivari) and former champion JDK Non-stop (Kyle Keebaugh), will feature ¿ve rounds in a headto-head rap battle this Saturday. “These two childhood friends, and long-time hip hop artists, who have been creating music together for years, know all the details about one another,” said Harley Pyrozyk, Mad Melody Records business and artist manager. “It is expected the talented emcees will bring everything to the table in this rematch, to prove to the fans who is the rightful MMR champion.” In June, Kit (who is part of local hip hop group Sick Sense) de-

feated JDK Nonstop, who was the MMR champion at the time in an elimination style tournament. Sub-events also happening on Aug. 18 at Fibonacci’s in Penticton will see Prince Product (Cole Martel) looking to redeem his record when he goes up against newcomer Tyclone (Tyson Warmington). Pyrozyk said Tyclone’s “vicious freestyle Àow” impressed the judges in the previous Topic Rap Battle. Other contestants include Be Solemnity (Cam McColloch), Jay-E (Jesse England) and Toxik Emissionz (Seth Murray). Pyrozyk said there is still three spots left for any hip hop artist, spoken work or freestyle artist that wants to compete. The event will be hosted by MC Bodhi (Rob O’Day), co-owner of MMR. Each contestant will verse head-to-head on random topics that MC Bodhi throws at them from iconic events, pop culture to politics and funny words.

9

There will be two topic rounds and one ¿nal classic rap battle match round where the contestants will have freedom to call their opponent out on anything. At the end of the rounds lyricists will be graded on a ¿ve point scale based on Àow, creativity/originality, lyricism/wordplay, stage presentation, topics and crowd reaction. These points have been continuously banked from previous competitions and once 100 points are reached contestants can redeem them for a free instrumental beat created and produced by MMR. Admission to the Aug. 18 event at Fibonacci’s that starts at 8:30 p.m. is by donation. An age restriction of 15 years and up has been set for entrance. Those interested in signing up for the rap battle can email info@madmelodyrecords.com. Rules for the competition can be found at www. madmelodyrecords.com.

Three Saanich police detectives and a forensic technician are in Penticton conducting an external investigation into the death of a 30-year-old man last week in police cells. Steven Joseph Scott was arrested Aug. 9 and remanded by a justice of the peace. He was found dead in his cell the following morning. “When we do an external investigation, we’re focusing on the manner of the death, and any causal factors that may have led to his death,” said Det. Sgt. Chris Horsley, one of the four of¿cers sent to Penticton. “That includes the movements of the deceased prior to coming into contact with the RCMP ... In this case we’d want to know what people he’d come into contact with, what he was doing, was there anything that happened prior to him being arrested by RCMP that may have been a causal factor in his death.” The B.C. Coroners Service was conducting an autopsy Monday afternoon in Penticton. “We’ll await the outcome of the autopsy to determine if there’s a (conclusive) cause of death, however we will certainly be awaiting toxicology reports from the lab, which can take some time to process,” Horsley said. Because the death happened while Scott was in police custody, all his movements and interactions since being arrested have been caught on ¿lm. “Our mandate here is to conduct an external investigation to determine if there’s any criminality involved in the manner of death,” Horsley added. Scott, of no ¿xed address, was initially arrested as a result of a disturbance call and a refusal to leave a Penticton residence.

An RCMP policy relating to police-involved incidents that result in injury or death requires that an external investigation be conducted by an outside police department. The cost of external investigations conducted is paid for by the RCMP. South Okanagan RCMP are under investigation for a number of incidents that occurred recently. A complaint was lodged in June of an alleged incustody assault by a Penticton RCMP of¿cer. New Westminster police are investigating the incident that allegedly occurred during an arrest carried out last August. The of¿cer is currently on administrative duties until the investigation is completed. Delta police are investigating Princeton RCMP after an incident where they attempted to pull over a speeding driver that led to a police chase. The man was later found deceased in his vehicle in an apparent suicide. A man accused of domestic assault in Osoyoos tried evading RCMP which ended in a deadly ¿ery crash on Highway 3 in June. That matter is being investigated by the Abbotsford police department. Police were in pursuit of the vehicle, but say they had to cease because of the dangerous manner in which the man was driving. Witnesses said they saw the vehicle drive through a police blockade. The van then went down an embankment and Àipped before it burst into Àames. In January an inquest took place into the death of Gordon Amyotte who collapsed while Penticton RCMP of¿cers were walking him to a police vehicle in May 2010. It was determined by the jury that a lethal dose of methamphetamine before RCMP took the man into custody led to the death. -With ¿les from Kristi Patton, Black Press

Smoke haze settles in valley Joe Fries

Western News Staff

Smoke from far-off forest ¿res settled over the Okanagan Valley on Monday and contributed to a record-setting spike at an air-quality monitoring station in Kelowna. The station at Okanagan College recorded an ozone concentration of 96.5 parts per billion, the highest level ever recorded there, according to a report sent to Doug Lundquist, an Environment Canada meteorologist. He said the reading was taken between 6 and 7 p.m. when the haze over the valley was thickest. Among other things, high ozone levels can cause coughing and sore throats, plus all manner of breathing dif¿culties, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Lundquist said the haze was believed to be smoke from forest ¿res somewhere in Asia. “From our locally-produced forest ¿res we don’t usually get ozone, be-

cause the big particles that come when you’re near to the source destroy any ozone that’s produced,” he explained. “But when it comes from a distant land, at the top of the layer it can produce ozone.” Air quality throughout the region is expected to improve with the arrival of a cold front and winds from the north. The only forest ¿re burning in the region as of Tuesday morning was a 20-hectare blaze at Spius Creek about 40 kilometres southwest of Merritt, but “that wouldn’t be contributing much, if at all, to the smoke we’re seeing,” said Kevin Skrepnek, an information of¿cer for the Kamloops Fire Centre. The ¿re danger rating around Penticton was still rated high as of Tuesday afternoon, although it’s considered to be extreme in some pockets around the region. Last week a ¿re broke out in the industrial area from a worker grinding or welding that consumed a Class-C motorhome, trees and grass nearby before ¿re¿ghters gained control.

George Ryga house up for sale John Arendt

Cherry Lane Shopping Centre

Black Press

The former home of playwright George Ryga, for many years a literary landmark, is now up for sale. Keith Ferlin, chair of the George Ryga Centre Society, said the society does not have enough money to maintain the aging house on Caldwell Street. The asking price is $437,000. The house has been designated as a heritage building and as a result, the new owner cannot have it taken down and cannot make drastic modiÂżcations to the building. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You have to leave the exterior as it is,â&#x20AC;? Ferlin said. Ryga lived in Summerland from 1962 until his death in 1987 at the age of 55. The majority of his plays were written in the house. Ryga was a pioneer in establishing modern Canadian theatre. His most famous play, The Ecstasy of Rita Joe, was written in 1967 and has become a modern classic, taught in post-secondary institutions worldwide. Other plays include Grass and Wild Strawberries, Captives of the Faceless Drummer and Hungry Hills. Another book, Summerland, contains unpublished selections from stories, plays, poems, novels and essays written while he lived here. The centre was established in February, 1996 and functioned as a cultural centre and occasional writersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; retreat until early 2012. Over the years, the Ryga Centre held concerts and workshops with Bill Henderson, Roy Forbes, Valdy and Gary Fjellgaard. Peter Hay, a former publisher who worked with Ryga, said efforts were made to keep the house as a cultural centre. Three years ago, the society had looked to have Okanagan College to take over the house, but this plan fell through. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Okanagan College was the only viable solution,â&#x20AC;? Hay said. Ferlin said the response to the Ryga Centre in

ACCLAIMED MUSICIANS Roy Forbes, left, and Bill Henderson at the songwritersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; workshop at the Ryga.

Summerland had not been enthusiastic. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This community was never going to embrace the centre,â&#x20AC;? he said. While the society is folding, Ferlin and Hay said they want to ensure Rygaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s legacy continues. Once the house is sold and the bills paid, the remainder of the money will likely go to a foundation to fund a scholarship in Rygaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s honour. Ferlin said Ryga was able to get his start as a writer when he received a scholarship to the Banff School of Fine Arts in Alberta. Rygaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s legacy is also being honoured through the annual George Ryga Award for Social Awareness in Literature. The award, initiated by the George Ryga Society, B.C. BookWorld, CBC Radio in Kelowna and Okanagan College, has been presented annually since 2003. It is given to a B.C. writer who has achieved an outstanding degree of social awareness in a new book.

PENTICTON PISTOLERAS jammer R Skullyway bursts through the pack while her teammate the Surreal McCoy makes room for her during a 240-79 loss against the Revelstoke Derailers. The Pistoleras will look to get back to winning against the K City Rollers (Kelowna) on Saturday in the Penticton Trade and Convention Centre.

Pistoleras fired up for K City Rollers Emanuel Sequeira Western News Staff

Penticton Pistoleras might be a little gun shy starting against the K City Rollers in the Penticton Trade and Convention Centre Saturday. “We’re a little nervous because the team we are playing is a bit more experienced,” said Meghan Westfall, known as Roxy Horror Show on the roller track. “We have been practicing really hard and preparing for this game. I think we’re ready. We’re just excited to play on home turf.” The Pistoleras last played in Revelstoke and lost 240-79. “We had a rough game in Revelstoke,” she said. “We were met with some real strong strategy that we didn’t expect. And it’s not the style of roller derby that our team generally plays. They use a lot of what is called slow derby. We like a faster paced game.” Westfall said the K City Rollers play similar to them. “It’s de¿nitely going to be a

fast, likely hard-hitting game,” she said, adding that there isn’t a rivalry between them. “We’re not exactly going to be hugging during the game. We’re not out there to completely kill each other.” With the match approaching, Westfall hasn’t had time to think about it. “It’s kind of hard to even think about that when you’re running around getting everything ready,” said Westfall, who is also the chairperson for the South Okanagan Roller Derby Association. “All of a sudden it’s game day. We’re just excited to play to the home crowd. It’s the best feeling.” Westfall has never played in the Penticton Trade and Convention Centre, but has been a spectator there. She liked it because the vibe grows in the smaller venue. To her, everyone seems closer. “You are pretty much sitting right on the track,” said Westfall. “It feels like you are right there.” She said the reason the sport is

attracting fans is because its new to the area and the team is made up of locals (Penticton, Cawston, Summerland and Naramata). As she put it, with Penticton being “a pretty close-knit community” most people will know someone on the team. “It’s just something exciting and something especially for women,” she said. “Not really any sport like this available to women in the Okanagan. And for the men too, of course they like to watch it. It’s exciting, edgy and fun to watch.” Tara Farrell, known as Muxy Huff, said spectators are drawn to the creativity behind the ladies on wheels. “Women creating these personas. You can come up with any names. Face full of make up,” said Ferrell, a Pistolera. “I’ve been playing around with makeup. That’s part of derby too. Women create a character for themselves. Fans cheering on characters.”

Farrell will be of¿ciating and not playing because of a neck injury. She’s new to the sport as she started playing four months ago. She’s also excited to learn the role of the referee. “I’m not nervous because it’s so new,” said Farrell, who is a education assistant at Skaha Middle Lake School. “I’m more excited than nervous.” She too is expecting a good, but fast-paced game. “I think its’ going to be really exciting,” she added. “Closer games are better. Blowouts can get boring.” Tickets are available at the South Okanagan Events Centre box of¿ce. People can also get tickets at a discounted rate from a Pistoleras derby girl.Check their Facebook page at Penticton Pistoleras Roller Derby.

Local girls help Heat softball team place fourth at Western Canadian championship Western News Staff

After opening the under-16 Western Canadian softball championship with three losses, the Kelowna Heat girls bantam team ¿nished fourth. Helping the Heat accomplish this were Brett Needham and Candace Hamilton of Penticton as well as Naramata’s Hayden Craig. “The girls played really well and Candace had one of her best tournaments of the season,” said Heat coach Darran Light. The Heat, a B team, faced nine A teams from Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta from Aug. 9 to 12 in Strathmore, Alta. The

Heat managed to snap their skid as they mercied Brandon 22-2 and Edmonton 15-0 in three innings. With their third win on Saturday morning against Manitoba Thunder, the Heat were in a four-way tie to enter the playoff round. The ¿rst tie-break game was won against the Fleetwood Force in extra innings. They immediately played the Strathmore Thunder and mercied them to enter the playoff round. Light said entering the championship they believed they could be competitive and be in the medal round. “It’s a tough tournament for us,” said Light. “Saskatchewan is very strong.

Placing fourth, it’s tough. We wanted to get a medal and had to beat Calgary (the Heat lost 11-8 after having a 7-1 lead). “I’m proud of the girls,” he added. Needham, who during the season batted .524, hit .444, while driving in four runs and scoring 10 times as the Heat’s lead off batter. Hamilton hit .357, drove in two runs and scored four times. Her two runs batted in proved important as they were game winners. Hamilton had a tough weekend at the plate, batting .269, hitting one home run. She drove in six runs and scored six times.

Freak’n Farmer course expected to be freak’n fun Emanuel Sequeira Western News Staff

Hemochromatosis - Canada’s Most Common Genetic Disorder Supporting Families Hereditary Hemochromatosis (HHC) is the most common genetic disorder affecting Canadians. It is a crippling, potentially fatal condition caused by a defect of iron metabolism that leads to iron overload in vital organs, joints and tissues. The complications caused by the disorder are preventable if a diagnosis is made before the excess iron causes irreversible damage, and effective treatment exists.

Information Seminars are being held: PENTICTON, B.C. Thursday, August 16, 2012 Shatford Centre 760 Main Street, Galleria Room 7:00 pm

WESTBANK, B.C. Saturday, August 18, 2012 Two Eagles Golf Course – Nineteen Okanagan Grill 3509 Carrington Road, Continental Breakfast served at 9:00 am (Complimentary upon RSVP by Aug. 16th) Presentation begins at 9:30 am

These information seminars will connect hemochromatosis sufferers with others affected by the disorder in the local community. Representatives of the Canadian Hemochromatosis Society will provide information on the diagnosis, treatment and management of too much iron, and updates on the activities of the Society locally, provincially and nationally. All members of the community are welcome. These seminars are part of the Canadian Hemochromatosis Society’s Community Outreach Program and are provided free of charge. Please call 1-877-BAD-IRON (1-877-223-4766) or (604) 279-7135 if you are planning on attending any of the events. More information at www.toomuchiron.ca.

Athletes and fun seekers will get a glimpse of a farmer’s job during the Freak’n Farmer obstacle course race Sept. 1 at Covert Farms in Oliver. Forty participants have signed up to take on 18 grueling chores in the 12-kilometre event. Lyndie Hill of Hoodoo Adventures and co-ordinator of the Freak’n Farmer wouldn’t go into detail about what the chores are. “They are kept a secret until the morning before,” said Hill. “That’s the key, to be prepared for anything.” Gene Covert of Covert Farms said people will enjoy the challenge, which is physical and mental. “It’s really a unique race designed to be fun,”

pays tribute to the farming history and jobs that are done on farms today. I think it’s pretty cool.” Covert and his wife Shelly, who is a triathlete, both enjoy the racing community and he said it seemed like a good thing to do on their 600 acre farm. It’s an adventure for competitive and recreational people and will raise money alongside Sun FM for the South Okanagan Children’s Charity. “We are really excited about the Freak’n Farmer for many reasons. We are not only introducing this fast growing obstacle style race to the area, but this is a great opportunity to expand tourism in the shoulder seasons while raising money for a great cause,” said Hill. “This kind of event just brought tens of thousands of participants and spectators to the Lower Mainland in its Àrst year this spring. We expect to see very large numbers for this event as it grows as well.” Hill said the event will be capped at 200 people to keep it manageable. She anticipates over 150 will sign up. Athletes of all ages are encouraged to compete, but also those looking for a fun way to spend a day to come out. “Whether you are competitive or just looking for a great way to spend your weekend with friends, the Freak’n Farmer will be excit-

ing not only to do but to spectate,” said Hill. “The course is very challenging but you can choose to skip obstacles if you sign up in the recreational category.” Hill said this will attract people because they don’t have to be competitive doing it. “Have a fun day out with friends and push your limits,” she said. “See where you are with your ¿tness. Can work together with your team instead of doing it on your own. The venue for this is perfect. It’s a beautiful.” The Freak’n Farmer will be held annually. Sponsors, organizers at Hoodoo Adventures and partners at Covert Farms are looking forward to growing the obstacle course and increasing fundraising opportunities for the local charity.

A summer full of deliciously fun events Jennifer Schell Black Press

The summer so far has been a Àurry of gorgeous and delicious events. Outstanding in the Field in August was, well, simply outstanding. Hosted by Covert Farms in Oliver, the famous outstanding long table was set in the middle of a mustard ¿eld. Surrounded by a sea of yellow sunlit Àowers drifting into sunset, the majestic mountainscape’s glow dimmed as we dined on outrageously good food al fresco — surreal seems to be the best word to describe the meal. Founder Jim Denevan and his merry band of outstanding folks travel around the world setting their table in the most remarkable settings. Their mandate is to promote the farmers, or rather,

“star-mers” as they are now being referred to. You know, those incredibly hard working people that you see at the farmers markets and fruit stands — the ones that grow and create healthy food for us to survive on. Joy Road Catering (the poster couple for locavorian living) created the meal from ingredients from the Covert’s organic ¿elds surrounding us and it was heavenly. Don’t miss it next year! Keep posted on their website www.outstandinginthe¿eld.com. Another fabulous event last month was the annual 1.6 Mile Dinner at Oro¿no Winery in the Similkameen. Those who know me know how I gush about this incredibly special region. The organic food (did you know that Cawston is the

organic capital of Canada?), the award-winning wines and then most importantly, the beautiful, evolved, passionate humans that live there and create food and wine to share with us. John and Virginia Weber are two of those humans and they host this event each year celebrating a meal that is created literally from soil in a 1.6 mile radius from their winery. Down to the almonds, which come from their beautiful trees on the property, this dinner is a celebration of what is possible and what should be aspired to in this breadbasket that we live in. It is an example of people working together to create a delicious, gourmet meal from the produce and craftsmanship in your community. The Similkameen people live

by example, they represent who we CAN be as a food and wine community and destination. For more info visit www. oro¿nowinery.com. If you have not had the chance to experience Cameron Smith and Dana Ewart of Joy Road’s exceptional cuisine – you can still book into their dinner series that takes place up on God’s Mountain. See their website for details www.joyroadcatering.com. The Similkameen Pepper Festival is coming up on Sept.15 and this year they are hosting a valley wide Hot Sauce contest. Details to follow in my next column — you could be named the hottest in the valley! Visit www.ttpsoftware.com/ sizzlesite. Other events coming up include the third Annual Garlic FesSubmitted

OUTSTANDING IN THE FIELD, hosted by Covert Farms in Oliver, was set in the middle of a mustard field surrounded by the stunning South Okanagan backdrop.

ALS Cycle of Hope peddles awareness across the province Steve Waldner Western News Staff

After watching her father struggle with amyo-

trophic lateral sclerosis, ultimately losing his life to the disease, Cindy Lister felt compelled to do something.

ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, weakens the muscles of the body, eventually leading to paralysis.

Those with later stages of the disease may need a feeding tube, as eating is too dif¿cult. Generally, those who suffer from the disease die from either respiratory failure or pneumonia within ¿ve years of the onset of symptoms. One of the most well-known people who have the disease, famed physicist Stephen Hawking, has endured the disease for over 50 years. Currently, there is no cure. “ALS is not a very popular disease, but when it touches a family, when it strikes you, it strikes you very deeply,” said Lister. Setting out to bring the disease to the front of more people’s minds, Lister and ¿ve friends created the ALS Cycle of Hope, a 10-day event which will see them travel 560 kilometres from Kamloops to Hope to raise awareness for the disease. The team, in matching purple and white out¿ts, stopped in Penticton for a hot dog barbecue at Rona, where they met and mingled with mem-

bers of the community. While the team hopes to raise $5,000 for ALS, the purpose of the ride is to build both awareness and a foundation the group can expand on next year. “We’re a small team this year but next year it will be a bigger team and the idea is it’s going to be a bigger team raising the awareness, but also having fun along the way in some of these communities because there’s so much to offer,” said Trish Fougner, one of the team

members. In the future, the group will be looking to not only expand the team of cyclists, but to also open up certain segments of the route to those who want to join the cause, allowing people to ride with the cyclists and contributing without having to train for the 560 km distance. Along the way, the team has been stopping at various communities on their route, seeking donations and raising further awareness

for their event, as well as ALS in general. These stops, said Lister, are where families coping with ALS come forward and connect with the riders. “The families we have been encountering are a variety of people who have lost a brother, mother grandfather,” she said. “People that do stop and donate, they have something to share. They want to talk, they need to talk and we’re here to listen.”

PENTICTON PEACH FESTIVAL had record crowds over five days. Starting clockwise from top left; Penticton Peach Festival royalty cruise in their float during Saturday’s parade. The Aboriginal Cultural Village filled Gyro Park with a traditional pow wow and entertainment. The scrambler at Shooting Stars Amusements was a popular ride. The Seattle Schools marching band brought lots of smiles with their unique performance at the parade as did the Olympians at the Kiddies parade. West Coast Lumberjacks wowed crowds with their energetic performances.
