CITY FLOATS MOORAGE AND BEACH USE Steve Kidd

Western News Staff

While the Àying man has moved on, the day moorage on the west end of Okanagan Beach is here to stay. While the 30 metre area stretching east of the S.S. Sicamous has been the subject of concern by some beach users, the City of Penticton is trying to address some of the concerns by taking steps to better mark off the area. “We’re going to make it a bit more obvious about the possible conÀicts there,” said Len Robson, public works manager. Some work has been done already, with adjustments to the white marker buoys, some of which are already strung with lane markers. “We are going to continue on so it delineates that side better. We are going to be adjusting some signs, putting a few extra signs up there to make it a little more clear that this is a boating area,” said Robson. The new moorage area got a lot of attention in July and August, due to the Àying man often seen off shore there. Flyboard Rentals, which has recently closed and returned to Calgary, set up a new business there, offering rides on the latest sports device to hit Canadian waters. With water jets strapped to wrists and feet, powered through a hose linked through a jet ski, the Flyboard allowed riders to Ày like comic book hero Ironman — at $75 per hour. Land technician Peter Wallace, part of the city’s planning department, said they consider the project carefully before granting the company a $1,200 beach vendor licence and assigning them a spot at the day moorage area. His ¿rst exposure was to videos of the device in operation. “We passed those around to different department heads to decide whether or not it was prudent thing for the city to become involved in. It appears to be on the risky side,” said Wallace. Despite the risky appearance of the new sport, the city decided to green light the project, provided the owner could meet criteria like securing an insurance policy and meeting boating safety and navigable waters regulations. “The city is trying to promote more activity on the beach, more excitement, more things going on,” said Wallace. “that was why it was

embraced, because it did look new and exciting and it was something that people would watch. Certainly, there were lots of people standing around watching whenever someone was Àying the thing.” But not so many of those people were willing to fork over $75 per hour to ride the Flyboard, and with costs like an insurance policy estimated at $10,000 and the price of the equipment — about $8000 from NBD Watersports — the Àyboard rental company has pulled up stakes. Wallace said the city hasn’t heard safety concerns relating to the Flyboard itself, though there was some concern from established rental companies in the area. “I keep hearing this all the time that the pie is only so big. Every time you bring something new in, it takes money out of our pockets,” said Wallace. “It’s competition though. Certainly council has given us direction that we are not in the business of preventing a free market and competition.” While city has received several complaints, Wallace said they were not related to safety. The larger concern was that the day moorage area took away swimming area for boating. The concept of a day moorage area was introduced during the 2012 budget process, when discussion arose about an opportunity for boaters on Okanagan Lake to tie up at the west end. “We had received a lot of comments from boaters that there wasn’t that opportunity,” said city manager Annette Antoniak. “In light of the fact that there was all this work being contemplated with respect to the waterfront being a priority, as an interim measure, it was decided to create that area.” Robson said the Sicamous day moorage area is gaining popularity, and an existing day moorage farther down the beach has seen a signi¿cant increase in usage. “For the longest time, people thought there was nowhere to moor a boat on Okanagan Beach in Penticton,” said Robson. Along with the new area by the Sicamous, people are catching on to the existing area east of the Lakeside Resort. “It wasn’t well marked or advertised so it wasn’t much used at all. During Peachfest, I noticed there was probably ¿ve to eight boats out there. If not pulled right up, just anchored straight off there.”

Family of dead teen waiting for answers Joe Fries

Western News Staff

Marco Corbin had the world by the tail. A gifted athlete, musician and student, the 18-year-old was only a few months out of high school in Mission, B.C., when he and some friends made the trip east for summer fun on Osoyoos Lake. But the fun came to a tragic end just after sunset on Aug. 16, 2011, when the tube on which Corbin and two buddies were being towed was run over by another boat. Corbin was rushed back to shore where paramedics and bystanders tried in vain to revive him. One year later, a criminal investigation continues but no one has been charged. Police have said little to the public or the family, although details of the investigation are contained in court documents (see story below). RCMP Cpl. Mike Field, the primary investigator, acknowledged the probe has been a lengthy one, but noted that fatalities are never routine. “It takes time to conduct these investigations because you have to make sure you get it right,” he said. Field said police are still considering charges against the drivers of both boats: dangerous or impaired operation of a vessel causing death against the operator of the boat that hit Corbin; and criminal negligence causing death against the operator of the boat that was towing Corbin. The corporal said he is almost ready to send away a second batch of biological samples for testing, and expects to have a report to Crown ready in the next few months once those lab results are back. “I understand that police can only tell you so much and sometimes it’s nothing because they say everything’s under investigation, so we’re just waiting,” said Corbin’s mom, Elena Di Giovanni, from the family home in Mission.

MISSION RESIDENT, MARCO CORBIN, was 18 when he was killed in a boating accident just over one year ago on Osoyoos Lake during a summer vacation.

The eldest of three sons, Corbin was an “outstanding scholar, friend, brother, boyfriend, everything,” his mother said. He also fronted the Corbin Brothers musical trio, a group that performed an eclectic mix of ska, rock and jazz throughout the Fraser Valley. He was “every mother’s dream of a perfect son,” Di Giovanni said. “The kind of kid who was always, always doing something.”

She balked when he ¿rst asked permission to head to Osoyoos Lake to stay at a friend’s grandparent’s cabin. “We’d never let him go anywhere on his own where there hadn’t been more adult supervision,” Di Giovanni recalled. But Corbin eventually got his wish, leaving behind a mom who was worried most about the teens safely navigating the highways en

route to Osoyoos. She couldn’t imagine what was about to come next: “It’s every parents nightmare. You get a knock on the door at 2 o’clock in the morning and it’s just shocking. And it’s still shocking.” Di Giovanni said she has only spoken to investigators through a liaison at the RCMP detachment in Mission. She did, however, receive a card through police from a group of females who were on the boat that hit her son and swam over to the tow boat to try to help. Di Giovanni said she spoke to the girls by phone and thanked them for their efforts, and wished to extend the same thanks to anyone else who tried to help that night. She also praised the coroner who examined her son and reported to her there were no drugs or alcohol in his body. Di Giovanni has not spoken to the driver of the boat that hit her son and did not even know his name until told by the Western News. Police said in a press release a few days after the incident that the driver was a 27-year-old Alberta man. “It was no one’s intention to set out and kill somebody,” Di Giovanni said. “These are tragic accidents.” Court documents suggest alcohol, a lack of proper navigation lights and non-compliance with boating regulations on the part of both operators may have been factors in the crash. “Common sense would have prevented this, and that’s the tragedy. It wasn’t a tsunami, it was an accident that could have been prevented,” Di Giovanni said. If there is to be a court process, she will wait for it to end before doing whatever she can to help spare another family from the pain hers has endured. “It’s impossible for police to man all those lakes. People have to take more responsibility,” Di Giovanni said. “But perhaps if ¿nes were really, really more stringent and imposed, people would think twice before they make bad decisions.”

RCMP spell out details of search warrants in fatal boating incident Joe Fries

Western News Staff

Details of the police investigation into the Aug. 16, 2011, death of 18-year-old Marco Corbin are contained in two court documents police ¿led with their applications to obtain search warrants. Called an information to obtain (ITO), the application is a sworn statement by a police of¿cer in which he spells out the grounds on which a warrant should be granted by the court. However, witness statements given to police and included in the ITOs are not sworn and therefore not considered as reliable as court testimony. RCMP Const. Joseph Bayda was granted two separate warrants in the Corbin case. The ¿rst was authorized Aug. 18, 2011, and allowed police to search the boat that struck and killed Corbin, which was operated by Ryan William Symington, according to the ITO. The warrant allowed the seizure of DNA samples, beer cans, lights, electronics and other items “that would provide evidence to the operation of the vessel.” Bayda wrote in his application that Symington was taken

BIG

to the Osoyoos RCMP detachment around 11 p.m. on Aug. 16, 2011, and that Symington “appeared to be under the inÀuence of alcohol.” About an hour later, breath samples taken at the Oliver detachment showed Symington’s blood-alcohol level was twice the legal limit, according to the ITO. After spending the night in jail and being warned of his rights, Symington told Bayda he was driving the boat at the time of the incident and said that although he saw the other vessel, he did not see the tube behind it. Symington also told the of¿cer he didn’t realize at ¿rst that he had hit anything, and later became scared when he learned someone had been injured, Bayda wrote. Symington is now working overseas, according to his father, and could not be reached for comment. Tyra Leamoal, who was on Symington’s boat, told police the sun was going down when she spotted another boat with a green light visible coming towards them. Leamoal said both vessels were going fast and she saw the tube just before Symington’s boat hit it. Leamoal told police that Symington initially did not want to go back to the scene after the accident and said at one point, “Don’t call the cops,” according to the documents.

She said Symington relented, and she and two other females swam over to the other boat to offer help. Leamoal also said occupants of the tow boat were throwing beer cans into the lake as they headed back to shore. The driver of the boat towing Corbin and two other friends on the tube is named in the ITO as Cole Delorme. Moments before the incident, Delorme heard someone on the tube yell, “What’s that?,” then noticed a white boat about 10 metres away, according to the ITO. He said he “pinned it” to try to get the tube clear. Delorme also said his boat had only its front navigation lights on, that he knew he should have had a spotter but didn’t, and that he shouldn’t have been towing people after dark, according to the ITO. Delorme told police the other boat did not have any lights visible. A breathalyzer test a few hours after the incident detected no alcohol in Delorme’s system, Bayda wrote. The second warrant, authorized April 11, 2012, allowed police to seize blood samples taken from Corbin during a post-mortem examination to determine if his DNA matches that found in “biological samples” on Symington’s boat during execution of the ¿rst warrant.

��� RELIABLE • PROFESSIONAL • RESPONSIBLE

A former Penticton man has beat several serious charges after the judge did not ¿nd testimony from RCMP to be believable. Kregan Feenstra appeared at Penticton provincial court on Monday to hear the judge’s decision in a lengthy trial that stemmed from charges laid just over ¿ve years ago. In July of 2007 Feenstra was accused of assaulting three police of¿cers and attempting to take a police of¿cers ¿rearm during an incident that took place outside of the Mule nightclub. “It does not mean Mr. Feenstra could not have done things a lot different and police could have done things a lot differently. I hope, in hindsight, that Mr. Feenstra and the police of¿cers will make different choices or try alternative strategies to avoid something like this occurring again,” said Judge Brad Chapman. Defence witnesses that countered the accusation that Feenstra was attempting to grab the RCMP of¿cers service pistol was found to be “believable” by Chapman. The judge added he couldn’t “say the same of Const. Blazina’s evidence” who he said “minimized his own actions.” Const. John Blazina testi¿ed they were asked by a bouncer to escort Feenstra away from the property and tried to subdue him. Chapman said video evidence played a big role in the trial and concluded that Blazina’s testimony appeared to come more from what the of¿cer saw on the video than what he actually recollected.

I envisioned his head as a soccer ball. — Const. Elliot Van Dusen

Const. Jean Lecki testi¿ed Feenstra walked towards RCMP “all ¿red up” yelling and swearing and that is when she told him he was under arrest. She said Feenstra was instructed to show his hands but instead started to back away. Blazina testi¿ed Feenstra had threw his arms in the air and said “¿ne I’ll go.” and walked past the of¿cer pushing his arm as he walked rapidly towards the car. The of¿cer responded no one gets in without getting searched and handcuffed ¿rst. Const. Elliot Van Dusen saw the dif¿culty Blazina was having handcuf¿ng the man, as he was now on the ground grappling with Feenstra, and decided to use a Taser. Police of¿cers said the Taser was ineffective because one of the probes did not make contact with Feenstra who began a sweeping motion with his leg and was Àailing his arms allegedly in a resistant manner. Chapman said in his decision that after viewing the video there were periods where Feenstra laid motionless under the of¿cers and it wasn’t a continuous struggle. Blazina testi¿ed he felt as though his holster was caught on, or was being tugged at, extremely hard and yelled “he is going for my gun.” Van Dusen said “I envi-

sioned his head as a soccer ball” and kicked Feenstra four or ¿ve times. Differing opinions of the incident were given with Lecki testifying she had poor memory of the struggle and did not see Feenstra’s hand on the gun when she tried to handcuff him at this point. Van Dusen said he saw Feenstra’s hand at the butt end of the pistol, while Feenstra said he did not recall putting his hand on the gun. Chapman found that if Feenstra did anything at all it was “incidental touching” and Feenstra’s actions on the ground were in reaction to the police of¿cers using the Taser. Feenstra was eventually subdued, after being pepper sprayed, and the video showed his face covered in blood. Defence council Brian Coleman told the Penticton Western News after the judge’s decision on Monday that the trial had taken so long because of a lack of resources, shortage of court time and both Crown and defence wanted to be thorough and fair in presenting the evidence. Feenstra was found not guilty of causing a disturbance, willfully resisting or obstructing a peace of¿cer, three counts of assaulting a police of¿cer and one count of taking or attempt to take the weapon of a peace of¿cer.

Judge sentences time served for high-risk sex offender’s breach Kristi Patton

DAY PASS for Display Gardens 250-497-6600 351 Linden Avenue, Kaleden www.lindengardens.ca

and Frog City Café

Western News Staff

A high risk sex offender was found guilty of breaching his conditions after communicating with a teenage girl in Kaleden. Phillipe Poisson was sentenced to four months of jail time on Wednesday at the Penticton provincial courthouse. The 20-yearold man has already served his sentence awaiting trial and was intended to be released back to a residence in Kaleden on Thursday. A 14-year-old girl testi¿ed, “It made my heart stop,” when she recognized Poisson on Jan. 7, who was walking with his dog towards her while she waited outside the Kaleden general store for her friend. The girl said she recognized him from emails that were circulated at the school and photos she saw on Google at home. The teen also said she knew Poisson was living in the community but had not had any contact or seen him in person. The girl, who had walked her horse to the store, said she turned and began rapidly walking home when it “clicked in” that it was Poisson. She felt the man was following her because he turned in the same direction as her near the library and said she was scared. Poisson came within 10 metres of the girl and asked if he could pet her horse, to which the girl replied her horse is scared of dogs, to give a reason for him to stop coming towards her. Then she continued walking. The teen said Poisson said he would tie his dog up and did so. Seconds later a woman who knows the teen pulled up in a ve-

hicle asking if she was OK. The teen said she wasn’t and thought Poisson was following her. The woman in the car then spoke with Poisson while the girl walked to her house. The teen said she began crying and told her father what had happened and explained what Poisson was wearing. Later they saw Poisson walking on another street and the father pulled out binoculars and con¿rmed it was the man they knew as a highrisk sex offender and called the RCMP. While Crown counsel John Swanson said Poisson had signed a document stating he completely understood the seriousness of the conditions and knew the consequences if he breached them, defence lawyer James Pennington said Poisson has a diminished

mental capacity and believes his intentions were most likely innocent. “Certainly this is a case where he should have thought and that may be dif¿cult for him,” said Pennington. Poisson has breached his conditions a number of times and while in jail in Kamloops got into an argument with guards that resulted in another conviction. The man is on a 24-month recognizance, after a judge determined Penticton RCMP concerns were valid that Poisson was at risk of committing a sexual offence against a young person. The recognizance has a number of conditions including a curfew and not to have contact with anyone under the age of 16. Pennington said this poses a large problem for Poisson, who possibly could be in contact with someone that age if they happened to work at a store. He also pointed out Poisson had issues when family who hadn’t seen the man in a long time came to visit him and had two young children with them. Judge James Threlfall said the information for him to change that order was not before him and therefore he could not make changes to it.

NDP leader sets sights on Okanagan Steve Kidd

Western News Staff

NDP leader Adrian Dix has some big plans for the Okanagan. The Okanagan, he said, has suffered from not having competitive politics. He plans on taking some seats away from the provincial Liberal party to change that. “In other words, the Liberals have treated this place like they own it, like it is one party,” said Dix. “I respect the voters and we will see what they decide, but we are going to compete in every seat. We think we can win every seat. We are not going to treat this area as if it is a Liberal area.” The Okanagan, he said, has been a focus for the NDP, especially since he took over as leader a yearand-a-half ago. “We are going to win seats in the Okanagan. I have come back to the Okanagan again and again. I think this is my 26th visit in the last 18 months” he said. While Premier Christy Clark was considering calling an election last year, he said the NDP was planning their own strategy. “If she had called an election, I would have been in Vernon, Kelowna and Penticton the ¿rst few days of the campaign, that was our plan at the time,” said Dix. The strategy may be different when the 2013 election comes around, but Dix said the Okanagan

will still ¿gure prominently, especially Penticton. “We are planning to compete everywhere in this region, but Penticton is a seat that we held between 1991-96. We’ve a base of support. The message we are sending is that we are going to work here and I am going to be here all the time, myself personally, to lead that campaign,” he said. “Our plan is to take this territory back.” Though the next provincial election is still months away, Dix said the NDP is getting ready, hoping to follow up their by-election victory in Chilliwack with substantial wins in other liberal strongholds. One good sign, according to Dix, is the number of nomination races going on in NDP constituencies. Boundary-Similkameen already has a candidate in place, and two nominees, David Finnis and Dick Cannings, have con¿rmed that they will be vying for the Penticton candidacy. “Those two have been approved, those two are going forward, they are great candidates representing different parts of the community,” said Dix. While the Liberals are still having trouble in provincial polls, Dix said the NDP doesn’t want to win just because the government is unpopular. “We want to win because we are responding to people’s concerns,” he said. “We need a mandate. And if the mandate is only because people aren’t happy with the premier or the liberals or whatever, that’s not the mandate we are looking for.”

New attractions bring new tourists A

t ¿rst sight, a rider on a Àyboard, Àying high on water jets strapped to wrist and ankles, looks like he is taking an incredible risk. And, as the jetski powered apparatus allows the rider to Ày nine metres in the air, do backÀips and even dive in and out of the water like a dolphin, well, it would be hard to argue that it isn’t dangerous. Consider the damage a powered dive into a submerged log would do to a rider’s head. “It appears to be on the risky side,” said Penticton Land Technician Peter Wallace. So, the question arises, why allow this oh-so-new sport to operate out of the City of Penticton? Though there was a rumoured accident, what eventually forced Flyboard Rentals out of Penticton was not enough interest to cover the costs of the equipment, valued at about $20,000 including the jetski, and its operating costs. All of that aside, the city’s decision to grant the beach vendor permit was a good one, even with concerns from established vendors about introducing new competition. Wallace said all these aspects were considered, and resulted in criteria that Flyboard Rentals had to meet prior to beginning operation, including an insurance policy. Though the nature of the tourist crowd on the beach changes over time, Penticton is a beach city. City council has recognized this recently by making waterfront revitalization one of its priorities. As well as ensuring the waterfront and the beaches are well-kept, it is just as important for the city to foster new attractions, and the new sport of Àyboarding promises to be one of those. Though the operators may not have been able to sell enough rides to be pro¿table, the crowds that gathered on the beach and on board the S.S. Sicamous to watch anytime the device was in operation are testament to the possibility of Àyboarding being a major draw for Penticton.

The rich, the poor and the hungry Two months ago, the United States Department of Agriculture forecast the biggest maize (corn) harvest in history: 376 million tonnes. After two months of record heat and drought in the US Midwest, it has dropped its forecast to 274 million tonnes. So by early July it was predicting that the price per bushel of maize would exceed $8 for the ¿rst time in history, and it’s now forecasting $8.90. The heat wave in Russia, while nowhere near as bad as the one in 2010, is also cutting deeply into Russian wheat production. There will still be enough for domestic consumption, but Andrei Sisov of the Moscow-based farming consultancy SovEcon said last week that he expected Russian wheat exports to drop from 28 million tonnes to only 13 million. For this and other weather-related reasons, wheat prices are on their way up too. High wheat prices hit human consumers directly, but high maize prices hit even harder in the long run because huge amounts of maize are used to feed animals and provide oil for processed foods. World food prices in general are on the way back up, and it’s beginning to

look like a pattern, not a series of accidents. Meanwhile, on a different planet entirely, the McKinsey Global Institute, the business and research arm of management consultancy McKinsey & Company, published another report in June. It’s the latest in an endless series of ever-bolder estimates by various “global institutes” of how fast the demand for goods and services is growing around the world. The themes of McKinsey’s new report, “Urban World: Cities and the Rise of the Consuming Class,” are familiar enough. The world’s economic centre of gravity is moving to Asia; huge numbers of new “consumers” — people with average annual incomes over $3,600 who buy

more than just food and basic shelter — will be joining the global market by 2025; there are wonderful opportunities out there for clever investors. Then come the numbers. As the emerging economies grow, they’ll all start buying fridges and baby food and, eventually, cars. Whoopee! We’ll all get rich selling things to the Chinese! But nowhere in the report does McKinsey deal seriously with the impact of a predicted total of 2.6 billion consumers, up from only 0.8 billion now, on world demand for food. Yet meat consumption soars as incomes rise. Feeding animals to produce meat puts huge pressure on grain resources, so all food prices rise, for rich and poor alike. Combine the rise in meat consumption with an extra billion people and severe constraints of food production, most of them related to climate change, and world food prices in 2025 could be two to three times higher in real terms than they are now. That means that the poorest starve, and that a lot of McKinsey’s promised new “consumers” – those who can spend on other things than sheer survival — don’t make it

into the middle class after all. The same rationing by price is likely to apply to everything else that matters. Indeed, the prices of energy and raw materials, which fell consistently through most of the 20th century, are already back up to where they were in real terms a century ago. There are not going to be 1.8 billion new consumers in thirteen years’ time, and the poor will be more desperate than ever, and political stability in many developing countries will be just a memory. The demands of consumers, like the sheer number of human beings, can in theory expand inde¿nitely, but on a ¿nite planet with dwindling resources and a changing climate the cost of meeting consumer demand is going to go up very steeply. It is probably going to get very ugly out there. And as for China, the poster child for miraculously fast economic growth – well, China has one-seventh as much water and one-tenth as much arable land per capita as North America. When things get tough, that is going to matter a lot. Gwynne Dyer is a Londonbased independent journalist whose articles are published in 45 countries.

Troubled waters here In the city’s website about the Waterfront revitalization planning process, it states that the draft plan is to be made public in August and “The public will be invited to give feedback on the draft plan as well.” So what gives down at the SS Sicamous? Why were permits issued to run boating operations on both sides of the Sicamous before the waterfront plan was completed and approved? Besides removing this popular swimming and walking area from public use, this action would seem to be a very clear end-run on the public process. Whatever were the city council and/or staff thinking or do they have so very little regard for the process and the citizens they represent or work for? Aside from the above situation for people, these operations are directly affecting the wildlife, especially the waterfowl and their young that frequent that area of the lake and use the beaches as critical resting places. A friend of mine watched a female merganser a few days ago attempt without success to ¿nd a place to bring her brood of 12 young out of the water for a rest. Between this situation and the ill-conceived (because with unintended consequences for other birds) efforts on the Red Wing beach to dissuade geese from using them, the birds are rapidly being excluded from an important resting and feeding area.

The recent letter by Tom Isherwood on ICBC was right about one thing — B.C. drivers are paying too much for car insurance. As a matter of fact, that’s what our union, which represents approximately 4,600 workers at ICBC, has been saying for over a year. But it’s not because of ICBC workers and it’s certainly not because ICBC doesn’t have the money to make insurance rates more fair. ICBC is a pro¿table corporation, but it wasn’t designed to be the government’s cash cow. Precisely because ICBC is public, it has better coverage at lower rates than private insurance in other provinces. It’s also made effective investments in improving safety, making roads less dangerous and rates cheaper for everyone. So when the government raids $1.2 billion of the pro¿ts, it has a real impact. Drivers end up paying more and workers who have been without a raise for three years are left behind. All our union is asking for is lower rates for drivers and a fair and reasonable deal to stop our members falling behind the cost of living. We are committed to negotiating and to not taking job action that would inconvenience the driving public. Both drivers and ICBC employees deserve better than what they’re getting now.

I wrote a detailed letter in June to mayor and council on the negative effects that such operations would have on the critical bird habitat represented by the beach and lawn areas around the Sicamous and elsewhere along the waterfront. I have received no reply to my letter nor any acknowledgement that it was received. In the face of these boat operations (plus the new one at the east end), it is dif¿cult to avoid the conclusion that the city has no genuine interest in a) their much-vaunted public processes, b) the citizens of the city, and many of our visitors, and c) the wildlife with which we share (or should) the land and water. I would be delighted if the above were shown not to be the case, but don’t hold out much hope that it will be. Eva Durance Penticton

Thomas Mulclair that enters my living room uninvited, day after day. The sickly spin on Mulclair only strengthens my dislike for Stephen Harper and his puppets. I am not saying Thomas Mulclair is the future leader that Canada needs, but I know for sure the one Canada has now was a bad choice from the get-go in my opinion. Harper, like most politicians, failed miserably to show his true colours prior to ¿nally squeezing enough votes from a majority of a minority of the electorate. Jack Layton had his dream, Mulclair has his, and Harper has become a Canadian nightmare. I would like to believe that Jack and Thomas were born with the capability of injecting colour and public gold back into a fading political rainbow. Breathing sunshine and strength of new leadership is needed now to lift the doom and gloom that hovers from coast to coast. The brush of Thomas Mulclair could complete the canvas of the Jack Layton dream mixed with his own. Combining the two with the dream of all Canadians isn’t such a bad dream either. Thank you for the unwanted attack on Thomas Mulclair, Harper, and prepare for a back¿re you truly deserve. Tom Isherwood Olalla

Penticton has so much to offer at Peachfest for ¿ve glorious days. Unfortunately, as a transit user, I am excluded from any of the late evening events, such as Light-

It gets worse on Sunday, as there’s no night service. Too bad the city is only interested in extending service on New Year’s Eve, and then it’s also free.

Property saga continues The saga of the Eckhardt Avenue “proposed dormitory property,” continues. In recent weeks, there has been activity on the property. It is, in essence, a try to make it more appealing to any prospective developer. The craters have been ¿lled in and the ground made level. The monster pile of ¿ll has miraculously disappeared. “How did this happen,” you might ask? It happened as a result of more of your tax dollars at work. Two large loaders; a grader and several trucks have made this “miraculous transformation.” What the cost of this project would be is anybody’s guess. All I know is that taxpayers’ dollars will be paying for it ... again.

The ground is level now and looks a little more appealing. However, it is still easy to have a mind’s eye picture of the debacle that was. Just because the area looks appealing, doesn’t necessarily mean that the Àoodgate will open with offers to develop it. We might think of it as paying full price for damaged goods. Of course, there are the lien issues to contend with as well. The questions that need to be answered might be: “How much must the city ask for this property in order to recoup its ¿nancial loss?” “What developer would or could meet the conditions and liens of the property?” “What concessions, if any, might be offered to prospective developers and at what cost?” “How much

Warnings inadequate

I am writing regarding the loss of another precious life (a 12-year-old girl) at the end of the channel as it drops into Skaha Lake. The current warning signs are inadequate and do not reÀect the deadly danger (especially to out of town visitors) of being pulled in by the undercurrent. Last year an adult male and in the past years several others have drowned needlessly in this locale. A suggestion: Two or even threes large signs in bold dramatic printing placed before or on the bridge; printed with the following warning: Absolutely no tubing or swimming beyond this point — Extremely dangerous. If this saves even one precious life in the future, this little girl’s death will not have been in vain. Sid R. Waterman Penticton

more will the city have to invest to make the property very saleable?” “What would be considered as viable building conditions?” These are but few questions that need to be answered. Will prospective buyers have the “caveat emptor” attitude? The ground work (no pun intended), has been done. Now the hurry-up and wait game starts. What suitors will come acalling? Will there be a wedding of property and developer, and if so, when? More importantly, if and when this takes place, will the taxpayers have the option of “speaking now or forever holding their piece?” Stay tuned, folks. Ron Barillaro Penticton

and Penticton Creek. Approximately three quarters of the beach was available for swimming, with the remainder set aside as an of¿cial dog beach. Now, the entire swimming area has been redesignated as a “Boating Area” and for “Day Moorage”, according to signs erected in the last couple of weeks. More signage also indicates, incredibly, that human swimmers are now relegated solely to the dog beach. I am not making this up. Incredulous readers can verify it for themselves by inspecting the signs on the beach in Okanagan Lake Park. As with the similar reclassi¿cation of the waters surrounding the SS Sicamous described in my previous letter (Western News, Aug. 3), this is an encroachment of motorized boat traf¿c on an area previously available for swimming. It sets an extremely bad precedent. It is also an incongruous use of an important recreation area for Penticton, a hub for triathlon competition and training, as well as casual outdoor swimming. It beggars belief that this area is needed for boat usage given that it is situated between the Hooded Merganser marina and the Penticton Yacht Club. Thus far, my correspondence with Penticton city council has gone unacknowledged. Therefore I would urge all interested swimmers and beach-goers to help bring this to the attention of the mayor and city councillors. Drew Makepeace Penticton

Young woman deserves your vote

So often the letter to the editor forum is used to gripe or complain or to chastise another letter writer for views that you don’t agree with. Today I want to tell you about an amazing young lady in Penticton. Camelia Vokey is a candidate for BC Ambassador. Camelia is a former Miss Penticton princess and has spent endless energy promoting Penticton. She is a talented young lady who teaches dance to young students, works part time and still has time to devote to representing Penticton. I have had the pleasure of knowing Camelia since she was quite young and for the last number of years she has dedicated her time and talent to the Christmas charity gift wrap. She readily shows up to speak to any group that asks and also participated in the International Worker’s Day (May Day) sponsored by the South Okanagan Boundary Labour Council. I want to encourage the people of Penticton to support Camelia in her candidacy for B.C. Ambassador as I feel we will all be very proud to have someone of her calibre representing the positive aspects of our youth. There is one week left to vote for her as the People’s Choice. Voting ends Friday Aug. 17, 2012. You can vote daily. Let’s get behind her and vote for Camelia Vokey at www.bcambassador.com/ peoples-choice-ambassador. Good luck Camelia. Lynn Kelsey Penticton

of her real dad, she brings back three suitors from Donna’s past to the Mediterranean paradise they visited 20 years earlier. Over 24 hours, new love will bloom and old romances will be rekindled. The tour has been going for almost two years, and Archer joined the cast out of Chicago in April. “We get to do this high energy, fun show that leaves our audiences with a smile. That’s something we take a whole lot of pleasure from,” he said. The stats for the stage musical are so impressive as to render them almost unbelievable. It’s been enjoyed by a staggering 50 million people around the world. The current North American tour has played 4,000 performances in 166 cities. “It’s been a big week,” Archer admitted, when reached on

his cell phone from the tour in Regina, Sask.. “People ask me where I was last week and I have to wrack my brain to come up with an answer.” It’s all a bit of a blur. They’re doing ¿ve cities in seven days, with a total of six shows, through Saskatchewan, Alberta, and B.C. They hop on tour buses at the crack of dawn, drive to a new city, and get ready for a morning sound check. “Then we get on stage later that night and give people our all. We give the show 100 per cent,” he said, adding that what most people might not realize is what’s involved “shlepping” across the continent with such a large-scale production. The Northwestern University grad said the production calls for a performer who can provide a lot of energy and per-

sonality. “It really requires that of the cast, and to constantly have new ideas on stage. So we encourage our fellow cast mates to have fun out there every night and hopefully that gets translates to the audience.” It’s de¿nitely working. Fans in most cities ¿nd the last 10 minutes offering an irresistible “mega mix” of ABBA songs. “That gets most of the audience up and dancing in the aisles,” Archer added. The performers enjoy that joyful reaction very much. “We like to encourage the people watching to get up and have fun with us.” Tickets are available at the SOEC box of¿ce, Penticton Wine Country Visitor Centre, by telephone at 1-877-SOECTIX or online at www.ValleyFirstTix.com.

Blackberry Wood brings high-energy show to the Elite After 6 Western News Staff

No matter what style of music your ears prefer, there is no doubt there is a hint of it in Blackberry Wood. The Vancouver-based band, playing at Elite After 6 on Saturday, is a high-energy cabaret spin on old and modern music, adding Àavours like ska, folk, punk and other irresistible body-shaking and foot-stomping delights. Like a travelling caravan, the group will sweep into the city with all kinds of instru-

ments, vocal melodies and costumed characters. Since March, Blackberry Wood’s tour schedule has been full, from rocking in the U.K. to festivals across B.C. and Alberta including the Hornby Island Get Up and Artswells Festival. With over 400 shows under their belt and appearances at dozens of festivals, Blackberry Wood has been kicking up a storm almost everywhere they go. “Making a party is our goal. We like for everybody to have fun,” said Jenny Red, the band’s saxophone player since 2010.

My Success Is Measured

Their latest album, Strong Man vs Russian Bears, was released this week and reÀects the pure, raw energy of their live shows. “We wanted to make something that people can take home from shows and have it really remind them of what they saw. We’re really proud of our live show and we really wanted to try and capture it,” said Red. Blackberry Wood performs at Elite After 6 (The Elite Restaurant in downtown Penticton) on Saturday at 8 p.m. There is a cover charge of $8.

Fans of the smash hit Mamma Mia! just can’t help themselves. They often get up and dance in the aisles. For many of those streaming into the South Okanagan Events Centre on Aug. 18 for the 2 p.m. or 8 p.m. show, the blockbuster musical will be like the soundtrack of their youth. “The tag-line for the show is Broadway’s non-stop party,” explained Devin Archer, 24, a member of the ensemble who sings and dances. Energetic performers with big personalities were something they were looking for while casting for the touring production. “I think Mamma Mia! is quite different,” said Archer. “There’s a story, and it’s fun and kind of wild, but we are also responsible for sharing the music of ABBA and bringing it to life.” Mamma Mia! the stage musical was written by British playwright Catherine Johnson, with pop/dance tunes by Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus, former band members. Hit songs range from Dancing Queen, and SOS to Take a Chance on Me, and Knowing Me, Knowing You. The story of Mamma Mia! is about an independent, single mom who owns a small hotel on an idyllic Greek island. Donna is about to let go of Sophie, her spirited daughter she’s raised on her own, with a big wedding. But little does she know, Sophie has secretly invited three guests of her own.

The Campaign is a comedy of political error

Taylor & Howe

Reel Reviews In The Campaign congressmen Cam Brady (Will Ferrell) has been North Carolina’s representative for eight years, perhaps only because he’s always run

unopposed. His streak on easy street comes to an end when a billionaire’s odd son, Marty Huggins (Zach Gali¿anakis) is hand-picked by corporate lobbyists to run against him, if only to further their agenda. Can congressman Brady win a fair ¿ght? Will his inexperienced opponent survive the public scrutiny and mudraking? Is the ¿lm funny, or too much of a statement to be anything but sad? We say, On the sur-

face it’s Zach and Will doing their thing, underneath it’s blunt satire of corporate-run politics. TAYLOR: I liked this movie, despite it failing to move me to laugh more than once. HOWE: Hmmm, I laughed a bit more than that. Ferrell had moments of Ron Burgundy’s arrogant, vain character dotted here and there throughout, that’s what made me laugh. TAYLOR: I thought that there should have been more baby punching and less trash talking.

In fact, I think the ¿lm would have succeeded better with a 14A rating rather than R. People laughed at the slapstick, they didn’t laugh at the in¿delity. HOWE: This has to be Gali¿anakis’s best role to date, he had to act in this and couldn’t just rely on his comic abilities. Whereas Ferrell on the other hand is just doing what he always does, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. TAYLOR: I agree about the acting, both of these men had to become

someone other than their normal character types. Ferrell takes his character to a breakdown that ceases to be funny. Gali¿anakis seemed to be channeling his oft used “mysterious effeminate weirdo” character, but it worked well and even just watching his walk was funny at times. Still ... HOWE: The Campaign is an intelligent movie, it shows just how corrupt the American political system can be, but it should of touched on more than just the one topic of corporate inÀuence. TAYLOR: That was what I liked about the ¿lm, the not so subtle satire of the relationships between lobbyists, politics, big business and the media. Unfortunately, some of the humour is lost in the sad truth of any good satire. I wished that they had pushed it a bit further into more poignant areas, such as war or health care, rather than just the American economy. Here again the ¿lm fell a bit short. HOWE: I was slightly disappointed in the end, the trailer for The Campaign looked full of promise, hope and truth, but like politicians, the ¿lm lets you down. TAYLOR: Yes, it’s not a bad ¿lm, but not very effective either. You go to the booth, you get your ballot, you choose your candidates and still, in the end you are fed the same old formula. Ah, art, as in life. Taylor gives The Candidate 2.5 heads in the freezer out of ¿ve. Howe gives it two true American dogs out of 5. This ¿lm is rated R and playing at the Pen Mar Cinema Centre nightly at 7:20 and 9:40 p.m. with matinees 1:20 and 3:40 on the weekends, 3 p.m. on the weekdays. Brian Taylor and Peter Howe are movie reviewers from the Okanagan.

A unique program at the Summerland Waterfront Resort and Spa is offering budding artists the opportunity to take lessons from local painters. Janice Cornett-Ching is one of the local artists taking part in the line up of summer activities at the Summerland Waterfront Resort hotel that is for both guests of the resort and for the whole community. The artist workshops have taken place throughout the summer at the patio adjacent to the lobby or in the lobby of the Waterfront Resort if the weather is bad. From Aug. 20 to 24 she will be at the Waterfront, offering lessons from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. “Anyone, at any level, that wants to take an afternoon to learn some techniques can sign up,” said Cornett-Ching. “I had a six-year-old in there which was fun. I teach them watercolours because it is not messy and they can use the sponges and simple things like that so they come away with a little painting.” She said from raw beginners to those with some experience painting can arrange lessons to learn new techniques in any medium. CornettChing has even taught painters that are 93 years old and teens who are passionate about learning. “It is fun to see people emerge and teach them colours and all the different tricks to make trees happen. I get so excited when I am teaching it, I love it. The young ones are so in awe of anything and everything. They are so absorbent of everything you tell them,” she said. Cornett-Ching is an accomplished awardwinning, painter living and working in the South Okanagan. She excels at landscapes, portraits and animals as well as painting the natural environment around her. As a child she had two paintings chosen to hang in the London Art Gallery for two years.

Capacity at new Okanagan jail worries union Joe Fries

Western News Staff

While it’s still unknown why an industrial park near Oliver was chosen as the ideal site for a new Okanagan jail, the need for the facility is quite clear: B.C. is running out of places to park its inmates. As of September 2011, provincial jails were operating at about 180 per cent of capacity, according to ¿gures provided by B.C. Corrections in a brie¿ng note sent to the Minister of Public Safety. Provincial jails hold prisoners who are awaiting trial or serving sentences of under two years. “Safety of public, staff and inmates is at risk,” noted another document that was among a batch of records that explain the rationale for the new jail and was sent to the B.C. NDP in response to a freedom of information request. The party provided those documents to the Western News. B.C. Corrections estimated that its inmate population would peak around 3,000 this year, about double the 1,517 cells it had in operation, according to a November 2011 brie¿ng note. That means most prisoners have to be double-bunked in a cell with another inmate.

“Double-bunking has become the norm now, but it causes the living units to be overcrowded,” said Dean Purdy, who looks after correctional workers for the B.C. Government and Service Employees’ Union, and that ultimately leads to more violence. The documents also point out that jails are coping with an increase in prisoners who need to bunk alone, such as high-pro¿le gangsters or the mentally ill. “Our jails are becoming the default mental health facilities due to the lack of institutions,” Purdy said. Even with 320 new cells expected to come online at two jails in the Lower Mainland in the next two years, about 81 per cent of provincial inmates are still forecast to be doublebunked by 2014, according to the documents. That estimate drops to 62 per cent by 2016 with the addition of 360 cells at the new Okanagan jail. But the wild card is new tough-on-crime legislation adopted by the federal government that could result in an additional 471 new provincial inmates who would push up the double-bunking rate to 78 per cent by 2016, according to the government’s best estimate. NDP public safety critic Kathy Corrigan

said the documents show the Liberal government ignored overcrowding in jails for too long. “So what we then have as a result is a province that is desperately playing catch-up now.” Corrigan also said B.C. should have weighed in on the federal crime legislation, speci¿cally provisions that impose mandatory minimum jail terms for some minor offences and remove the possibility of community sentences for others. That will push up correctional costs for the province. “I know we would have stood up much more strongly on the issue of the federal crime bill and the impacts it’s going to have on B.C.,” said Corrigan, who added her party supports some parts of the legislation, such as provisions that get tough with sexual predators. If the NDP forms government next spring, she said, it will carry on with construction of the Okanagan jail and assess the need for more cells once it has complete access to B.C. Corrections data. Besides double-bunking, the other big issue for correctional of¿cers is the staff-toinmate ratio at B.C. jails. The ratio had been set at 1:20 prior to

2002, when the new Liberal government began closing down jails and laying off correctional of¿cers, according to Purdy. Purdy said the union has been told the 360 cells at the Okanagan jail will be divided into 10 double-bunked units, each supervised by a single of¿cer, for a staff-to-inmate ratio of 1:72. “That’s a big concern for us,” he said, and one that he has raised with both the provincial government and WorkSafeBC. A written statement from the government communications branch said the jail is expected to hold 500 inmates on average in a mix of segregation units, medical units and regular living units. Brent Merchant, the assistant deputy minister responsible for B.C. Corrections, said via email that inmates are placed based on risk assessments “rather than a simple staff-to-inmate formula that does not take into consideration the complex nature of the individuals being supervised, nor the physical design of the living unit.” Merchant, who signed off on some of the FOI documents, also said double-bunking, “where risk assessments support this decision, has become commonplace to address capacity pressures in correctional centres across Canada and North America.”

During the past seven years a local committee of military and civilians have been working to raise Veteran’s Memorial Park to the level they feel it warrants. “Because it has been consecrated by the Legion padre it very much has a sacred context to it and what makes it sacred is that it is a memorial to the people of Penticton who have made the ultimate sacri¿ce,” said Air Force veteran and Royal Canadian Legion life member Ron Bannister,

who has co-chaired the committee that has been looking after the project. “It is a lot like a cemetery and we have done a lot of work in there that we really don’t want disturbed.” Out of respect for those people who are recognized by the cenotaph and other cairns including the two world wars, Korean conÀict, police and ¿re, Bannister feels the park should be treated as sacred by everyone. He hopes the people who often go and sit in the park to read or just

spend a quiet moment will think about those who gave their lives. His committee cochair Rob Horkoff who has also been involved with the project since it began in 2005, the Year of the Veteran, agreed. “The whole park concept is for remembrance of what the past and current veterans and even the current serving Canadian Forces members have done,” he said. “Now in recognition for what they have done and that it has been consecrated this piece of land within the com-

munity has now been set aside for generations to come to remember what happened to some of the veterans of Penticton.” He added as a result of recent international conÀicts such as Afghanistan, vets are no longer only voices from the distant past. Recently a small group of people who have worked on the project that includes the ANAVETS, Royal Canadian Navy, Air Force and the Legion gathered at the site to review what has happened so far. Recently, walkways have been installed leading to the cairns and cenotaph to protect the area and provide better access. “This is particularly important for people using wheelchairs and scooters who have mobility issues and have trouble getting across the grass,” said Horkoff. Work on this phase of the project is nearing completion and committee members are hoping to include lighting, benches, a directory and hand-carved log signs identifying the location at Veteran’s Memorial Park in place by later this fall. Three levels of government as well as private donors have given over $100,000 towards the work. Included in that money was a large donation from the late Robert Smeding a member of the Dutch resistance in the Second World War. The committee also singled out the efforts of Lyon Masonry Contractors for its work on the walkways and Okanagan Pattern and Sales for the plaques.

Laing was riding high during the Peachfest grand parade on Aug. 11, as it was her ¿rst public appearance as Miss Penticton. The 17-year-old Laing, Àanked by princesses Ailsa Craig and Shayla Ritchie and Miss Congeniality Taylor McIlroy, rode down Main Street, and waved to the crowd lining the street during the parade. She received her crown the previous night. “I still can’t register it, it still feels like a dream to me. I can’t believe it. It’s unbelievable,” she said. “I wasn’t expecting my name to be called whatsoever, and when they said it I had to sit for a minute, and I ¿nally realized that no one else was walking up and it was my name they called, and I had to go get my crown.” Already having spent the last eight months preparing for the pageant, Laing earned the privilege and responsibility of travelling to other communities, as far as Calgary, to promote the city of Penticton. “It really is like having a job, because your whole life revolves around Miss Penticton,” she said. “I was aware it was going to take this effort. I knew if I was crowned it would be another year around Miss Penticton, so I was very prepared for that.” The constant public appearances her new role brings are something Laing said she is naturally attracted to, being interested in singing, playing the guitar and the performing arts. However, she admits public appearances gave her the butterÀies until she got involved in the Miss Penticton pageant process — she still gets them, but can deal with the anxiety much better.

“I still get the butterÀies, but even now going in front of a crowd I feel much more con¿dent,” she said. “I feel that I can go in front of people and I don’t have to worry about being judged. I’m more comfortable in my skin than I used to be.” The growth that Laing saw in her public performance skills is just one bene¿t the candidacy process brings to the teen girls who sign up for it, said Jo Sommerfeld, co-ordinator of the Miss Penticton pageant. “It’s a training program to teach the girls selfesteem, public speaking and how to conduct themselves over an interview. It’s all beyond what people see on TV,” she said. “What they learn, they use throughout their lives.” Some of the other topics the two-hour-a-week training, which starts in January, covers are resume writing, etiquette training, networking skills and time management. Neetu Garcha was Miss Penticton in 2008. She now works for local radio station Country 100.7 as a on-air host and technical producer. Garcha said the skills she learned during her reign as Miss Penticton will carry on for the rest of her life. “It’s ¿ve years later and I use the, interview skills, the networking skills and the time management skills on a daily basis,” she said. “It sets you up for life, almost.” However, playing the role of an ambassador for a city of 42,000 can come at a cost. The somewhat strict ideals and norms that come with the crown get in the way of individual expression, said Garcha. “I didn’t chew gum for a year, I didn’t say dude, I didn’t say man, I didn’t wear jeans out in public very often,” she said. “It’s really hard to let your personality shine through sometimes, when you have all these rules you have to follow.” For last year’s Miss Penticton Jolene Hayter, balancing the ideals of the role with her own was a key to success. “One thing I really stand for is my brother,” she said. My older brother is a burn survivor, so I shaved my hair down to one inch to promote you can be that ideal of beauty regardless of your hair, regardless of your skin type or your makeup type, because watching my brother grow up, he didn’t let that stop him. He still found a way to be beautiful within that. I could express my beliefs in a way that still worked in accordance with the program.” Garcha had this piece of advice to give to anyone considering the role of Miss Penticton: “Never forget that you’re a role model, that there are little girls that are ages four to 22 looking at you as a role model,” she said. “Everything you do, whether you’ve got your banner and crown on or whether you’re just getting an apple or two from Save-On, you’re being watched. Behave as Miss Penticton with or without your crown on, because you’re always being looked at as a role model.”

Mazza extracts innovation Steve Kidd Western News

After winning a $20,000 prize at a regional business competition, an Okanagan company is one of 25 shortlisted to win at the provincial competition this fall. Mazza Innovation, who are commercializing a plant extraction process, took second place in the B.C. Innovation Council’s New Ventures regionals in February, after competing with 100 new companies also vying for a total of $60,000 in cash prizes. At the province-wide version, Dr. Joe Mazza will be competing with the 24 other ¿nalists for a share of $235,000 in prizes, with ¿rst place receiving $100,000. Mazza’s technology uses pressurized low-polarity water to extract valuable chemicals from plants for use in products such as foods, dietary supplements, pharmaceuticals and cosmetics. Traditional methods of extraction from plants use solvents, like ethanol, which can pose hazards to health and the environment. Since it uses only water, Mazza’s process leaves the extracted chemicals in a purer state. “We are creating value for the agricultural sector,” said Mazza. “There is a huge dietary supplement industry in Canada and around the world, it’s worth in the millions of dollars.” But Mazza said his work is about more than just the money. “Of course that’s important, but money is not why I am putting signi¿cant effort in it,” said Mazza. “We are producing a better product. We can use some agricultural products that have no value at this time and potentially have an impact on society both for the producers of the material and the consumers of the material.

Steve Kidd/Western News

DR. JOE MAZZA checks over his liquid chromatograph, which he uses to analyze the results of experiments with his new reduction process.

That’s what’s driving me. The fact that we are working on something that is of benefit to society. — Joe Mazza

“That’s what’s driving me. The fact that we are working on something that is of bene¿t to society,” Mazza continued. “I’ve been fortunate to be doing research for the last 20 years and I think I have an obligation to society to do my best.” The process was developed while Mazza was working as a researcher at Agriculture Canada’s research facility in Summerland. When he retired after 20 years of service, Mazza obtained a license from AG Canada to commercialize the process. However, scaling the process up from the laboratory is an expensive process. It was while looking around for funding

sources that Mazza discovered the BCIC competition. “I didn’t know they (the BCIC) existed until then. I put my name in there and I prepared a little bit of a pitch,” said Mazza. “I was fortunate to make second place. A lot of people are interested in this kind of thing. It is something different, it is something new and the judges were somewhat impressed.” While Mazza had never made this kind of pitch before, he said it wasn’t too different from previous experiences. “I have been teaching as well as giving talks all over the world. It’s the same kind of approach,

but to a different kind of people. Instead of talking to scientists or industry, you are talking to ¿nancial people,” he said. “The trick is to simplify, to make it understandable to the people you are talking to. Just like when you are teaching, you adapt it to the level of the student. That’s what I tried to do and I guess they liked it.” Established in 2001, the BCIC New Ventures Competition is one of North America’s largest technology business idea competitions, attracting applicants from a range of industries including clean tech, digital media, Internet, information technology and life sciences.

National track event expected to push athletes Emanuel Sequeira Western News Staff

Mark Brett/Western News

SOFT HANDS — Adam Heck hauls in this pass during the football section of the PacificSport ExploreSportz Camp Thursday at Queen’s Park Elementary School. The organization works in partnership with the city parks and recreation department to give kids an opportunity to sample different athletic activities.

Football skills will be focus with six-person teams Emanuel Sequeira Western News Staff

Six-person football teams with an emphasis on skill development is the direction the Penticton Minor Football Association is headed. Lorraine Sopow, secretary/registrar for PMFA, said they will be offering these teams for nine to 18-year-olds (separating the age groups). She and president Dave Johnson came up with the idea after time constraints from the Southern Interior Football Conference, which governs the Okanagan and Shuswap area, prevented them from having time to

assemble a team. Sopow added that sixa-side football is played in many places where the numbers are a struggle (such as Alberta, Saskatchewan, Texas and other places in Canada). She quoted the Football Canada website, which said, “Football Canada, in partnership with the Canadian Football League, are proud to promote 6-A-Side Football...Half the number of players — twice the athlete.” Sundays will be game days with practices held at McNicoll Park on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. There will be no travel involved. Sopow

said they are Àexible in how they organize the program. “We are hoping that this will allow parents to be more receptive to having their children (boys and girls) try the sport without the signi¿cant travel and time commitments,” she said. The association hasn’t come up with a cost for this year, but it’s expected to be signi¿cantly lower than what is listed on their registration forms. The decision was made earlier this week and the PMFA is trying to get information out to the public. Sopow said it is disappointing to

go with this approach, but she said it also isn’t completely surprising. “I believe that if we are to really establish football here in the south we will have to start with the basics,” said Sopow. “What better way to do this then with a smaller, more focused platform. Although it is not fullsized teams, it will allow players to learn the basics of the game and focus on building skills.” The PMFA has hope this format will help kids love the sport and then ¿eld a team in the next season or two at the league level. The PMFA has no-

ticed a perception that football is “too rough and dangerous” and is something they are faced with constantly. “Honestly, football is less likely to result in injuries as compared to other sports that do not require protective equipment,” she said. “And the fact that they are taught properly how to stand, how to tackle and be tackled safely – is very important. We are hoping that by changing the format it might entice more participation.” For full story, check www.pentictonwesternnews.com.

Nicole Mann, Hunter Dufty, Haven Dufty and Lucas Hooper are entering unchartered territory. The members of the Penticton Athletic Club will be facing the best Canada has to offer in the national youth track and ¿eld championships held in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island beginning Friday and ending Sunday. “The competitions are going to be the toughest they have ever faced,” said coach Gustav Allander, who was unable to make the trip. “The difference between this and the provincials is there are entry standards that you have to meet even to be able to compete.” Allander said a top eight ¿nish is the goal for the girls. Hunter, 13, will be competing against girls a year or two older. “For her it’s more to get the experience of being at a championship meet,” said Allander. “For the future it’s going to be a huge bene¿t.” With her events (shot put) on Friday, Hunter was enjoying the beauty that is P.E.I. as they arrived a few days early. However, she hasn’t lost sight of wanting to improve her results. “I want to get a personal best,” said Hunter from Charlottetown. “If I medal that would be brilliant. It would be awesome for me to throw over 10.20 metres.” Surpassing their top results is another goal. Haven, who represented the Thompson-Okanagan zone during the B.C. Summer Games, is nervous to compete against other Canadians, but has a good feeling about what she can accomplish in the 80 metre hurdles and triple jump. “I would be happy just gaining experience and friends from this,” she said, adding that having her teammates around will help. “I will have somebody to cheer me on as well as to cheer on too. Not just to be here by myself and be nervous about it.” Never needing much for motivation, Haven is determined to set new marks. Mann doesn’t feel any pressure as she strives to reach new heights in the 300 and 800-m relay. “Medalling isn’t really important to me right now,” said Mann, 14, who represented the Thompson-Okanagan zone during the B.C. Summer Games. Hooper will be in the 200 and 400-m relay. Allander said that Hooper is new to the sport and will gain valuable experience. The four quali¿ed by attaining entry standards during sanctioned events for B.C. Athletics, which are reported to Athletics Canada. “(The championship) will motivate them to work really hard in the future,” said Allander. “I think now they have the belief that we can compete at the national level and go further than that.”

Hanna Burton has been a spectator and volunteer for Subaru Ironman Canada. On Aug. 26, the 18-yearold will have the eyes of those people on her as she experiences it as an athlete. She will be among the youngest in the ¿eld along with another Penticton athlete, Tyler Berthelsen. While Burton faces the 3.8 kilometre swim, 180-km bike and 42.2 km run, she will have her stepfather Brian Edge at her side. “Hope to be side-by-side the whole time,” said Edge. “Support her out there and give her encouragement. Just want to ¿nish, no time we want to do. It will be pretty special for Hanna if she can pull it off.” Edge said Burton gives him heck sometimes because he bugged her for so many years to sign up. “Then last year, this was her grad year so she talked to her mom and myself and said she wanted to have a big year,” explained Edge. “Do some special things. It’s a big challenge.” She’s excited to have Edge at her side because, “he is quite an inspiration” for her. “He has been my coach and go-to-guy,” she said. “I’m pretty nervous because it’s my ¿rst one. I don’t really have much pressure on myself.” The two have trained together and have shared a few laughs. One incident two weeks ago took place as they were biking on Green Mountain Road and they spotted a baby bear.

“Hanna was feeling kind of tired at this point as we had just ridden over the Richter Pass and were heading home past the Apex Ranch on Green Mountain Road,” said Edge. “All of a sudden she put the pedal to the metal as she ¿gured out we were now in bear territory and she did not want to get left behind.” Another person who has inspired Burton is Jeff Symonds, who has won the Peach Classic Triathlon the last two years, and placed third in the 2011 Ironman 70.3 world championship. “He has been really good this year,” said Burton. “He has been quite a big help with nutrition. He knows his stuff about the bike.” Burton has also received support from health specialists to help recover from injuries, including back problems. If it weren’t for them, Burton said she “probably couldn’t do it.” To prepare herself for Aug. 26, Burton completed the Oliver Half Iron, the Valley First Axel Merckx Granfondo Okanagan and the Peach Classic Triathlon. Burton hasn’t competed in a lot of sports aside from swim-

He (Edge) is quite an inspiration for me. He has been my coach and go-to-guy. I’m pretty nervous because it’s my first one. I don’t really have much pressure on myself. — Hanna Burton

ming, when she was a member of the KISU swim club, and she played rugby for three years. Rugby, however, began to take a toll on her body. Because of her experience in swimming, that is the leg of the course she most looks forward to. “I’m pretty con¿dent about the swim,” she said. “I have already done it quite a few times.” Her only concern is with the bike section. “I think she will do okay but it will be tough,” said Edge. “The bike cutoff is a bit of a concern. The main focus is racing smart and pushing for that bike cutoff.” Burton joked that doing the Subaru Ironman Canada is something she wanted to get off her bucket list.

IN BRIEF Motocross at Speedway

Two of Canada’s top freestyle motocross riders will be at the Penticton Speedway Saturday during the Eve of Destruction. Oliver’s Kyle Demelo and Vanderhoof’s Jeff Fehr will be putting their skills on display at 7 p.m. Fehr is a Canadian champion, while Demelo is young and driven to become a top freestyle motocross racer. Demelo and Fehr will hit a 75-foot jump and perform tricks such as seat grabs and backÀips.

Kazakhstan winning one of them.

For the record

Naramata’s Hayden Craig helped the Kelowna under-16 bantam girls softball team place fourth during the Western Canadian softball championship held in Strathmore, Alta. She batted .269 hitting one home run, drove in six runs and scored six times. Craig’s coach, Darran Light, said his third baseman was one of his top play-

ers all season. In the Aug. 15 story Local girls help Heat softball team place fourth at Western Canadian championship, Craig was misidenti¿ed as Candace Hamilton.

Ladies golf

Doris Tower shot an 83 to win the ¿rst low gross during Summerland Ladies Day golf low gross/low net action. Carol Mulligan shot an 88. First low net went to Joanne Gartrell at 68, while Vijai Vaagen and Vi Ward shot 72.

Canada’s second Ironman

This weekend World Triathlon Corporation is debuting its second Ironman event in Canada in MontTremblant, Que. Subaru Ironman Canada announcer Steve King said there will be several athletes wanting to try the 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike and 26.2 mile run. “It’s good for Canada to have a second one. It’s really ¿tting. Mont Tremblant is a great place. They just hosted a 70.3 race,” he said.

Hockey player makes cut

Penticton’s Jessie Olfert earned a roster spot for the under-18 female Team B.C., which will be competing at the 2012 National Women’s championship in Dawson Creek Nov. 7 to 12. The roster was selected following a summer development camp held in Salmon Arm July 25 to 29. The national Kazakhstan women’s team was also there. “The camp with Team Kazakhstan was a huge success,” said director of operations for Team B.C. for B.C. Hockey. “The majority of the team had never been to Canada or to a camp of this nature. Kazakhstan is an older and more experienced team but B.C. proved they have a lot of talent. These were their ¿rst games together and they were highly competitive.” Team B.C. played three games against
