Council likes IHA downtown plan STAFF REPORTER

Local politicians were brimming with enthusiasm Monday afternoon when Kelowna city staff presented a plan to move Interior Health offices into the downtown core. “This is the single biggest thing that’s happened in downtown in its history,” said Coun. Andre Blanleil. “I think the economic spinoff-will help the condo market…and the businesses downtown.” Coun. Colin Basran was equally ebullient about the project’s potential to forever change Kelowna. “Everything will flow from here,” he said. “Our downtown in three years will have a different look and feel. It will finally be the heart of our community.” If the city and the health authority jump through all the hoops that will allow them to move forward with the plan, it will definitely be busier downtown than locals have grown accustomed to. Doug Gilchrist, Kelowna’s manager of corporate sustainability, explained the plan is to sell 1.2 acres of city-owned land on Doyle Avenue to Interior Health for $2.75 million for a community services and corporate building. To accommodate that development, the city will take on a project that will

see 702 new parking spots developed through an expansion to the Library parkade on Ellis Street and a new parkade at the south east corner of the Memorial Arena. “That would bring 1,000 employees and all the clients they serve (to the downtown),” Gilchrist explained. These people will be riding transit, supporting businesses and possibly choosing to live in the neighbourhood, he explained. “The project provides long-term benefits for the downtown as a whole and is supported in the City’s Official Community Plan and the Downtown Plan.” And the economic spin-off, even before the health authority’s staff move in will be hefty. The building of office space, as well as the citydriven parkades that are required for the development, would result in $45 million to $50 million in construction. The project is not without any financial risk on the part of the city, however. To fund the parking lot development, the city will have to borrow $15 million. But Gilchrist said it won’t impact taxpayers. The project revenues will offset this borrowing, he said. The city and IH have signed a memorandum of understanding declaring their intention to work together. If all goes well, the project should be completed within three years.

KELOWNA RCMP officers cover a body found in Okanagan Lake Monday afternoon off Hot Sands Beach in City Park.

Third body of the summer found in lake Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

A snorkeller found the body of a man submerged off Hot Sands Beach Monday afternoon. Just after 1 p.m., the swimmer spotted a body in an area in front of the volleyball courts just offshore and brought it into the beach. “Basically, a group of bystanders saw a body floating, dragged him to the beach, determined he was deceased and called emergency services,” said Const. Kris Clark, Kelowna RCMP. Standing on the beach as police arrived, Steve

Brown, who identified himself as the one who pulled the body in, said the it appeared to be that of a man in his 20s. Police were unable to say how long the body had been in the water, though Clark indicated the death did occurred at the time the body was found. He said the dead man had been in the lake for some time, and though he was not able to say how long, he said the deceased had likely been swimming when he died as he was wearing swimming trunks. Kelowna RCMP have been in contact with police in West Kelowna, Sum-

merland, Vernon and Penticton to see if any missing persons reports had come in to match the description of the man. “There is nothing really suspicious at this point,” said Clark, who also indicated it would be extremely unlikely anyone would die jumping from the bridge directly adjacent to the beach. A pink blanket was used to shield the body from view and by 2:30 p.m. the coroner had yet to arrive to remove the it. “The coroner is usually there within the hour, but sometimes, under certain circumstances, they have to get certain resour-

ces in place for themselves as well,” said Clark. “As you know, in the recent plane crash, the coroner didn’t go in until the next day. Of course, those were special circumstances because there is another agency that was investigating as well.” Two young men who stopped by the scene told police they had been at the spot on the beach where the body was found at 5 a.m. Monday morning and did not seen anyone or anything suspicious at that time. “There’s usually a bit of current, so once the boats get things going, it turns the water,” Clark

said before indicating the body might have floated in from anywhere on the lake in the hours before the discovery. Kelowna RCMP have now dealt with three bodies in Okanagan Lake this summer and one in Wood Lake. On July 13, a 39-yearold West Kelowna man drowned off Westside Road while swimming off a log boom with his wife. Then, on Aug. 1, police recovered the body of a man who had gone missing while paddle boarding on Okanagan Lake in the area of Carr’s Landing. jsmith@kelownacapnews.com

Mayor proclaims Pride Week Wade Paterson STAFF REPORTER

WADE PATERSON/CAPITAL NEWS

ODDREE MAYORMAYNOT, the drag-queen alter-ego of Okanagan Pride co-chair Wilbur Turner, attempts to kiss Kelowna Mayor Walter Gray after he proclaimed Pride Week in the city on Saturday.

Fifteen years ago, it might have been hard to believe that Kelowna Mayor Walter Gray would one day receive a round of applause from the lesbiangay-bisexual-transgender community. But that’s exactly what happened at Saturday’s Pride Family Festival Day and Picnic at Mission Park. Gray read the 2012 Pride Week proclamation and hailed organizers of the Okanagan Pride Coalition. “I’m here today to congratulate the new breed of organizers for the Rainbow Coalition. They’re certainly committed to grow a broad-based

annual community Pride Week event—you can tell they’re well on their way,� said Gray. “I think this is just fantastic.� In 2000, Gray was condemned by the B.C. Human Rights Tribunal for not including the word “pride� in a requested proclamation for Lesbian and Gay Pride Day during his first term as mayor in 1997. In an interview earlier this week, Gray told Capital News the exclusion of the word was discriminatory and said society has “grown up� since then. Wilbur Turner, cochair of Pride Week, said he’s “very happy� the mayor opted to sign and read the Pride Week proclamation this year and

added: “It sets a tone of equality and acceptance for the city.� Turner was decked out in a black dress Saturday and appeared as his dragqueen alter-ego, Oddree Mayormaynot. “As we created Okanagan Pride this year, the theme of celebrating diversity is what we came to as a way to celebrate who we are in the world,� Mayormaynot told the Pride Festival Day crowd. “As gay people, as queer people and the whole gamut of LGBT, it’s not that we want to be special—we just want to be treated equal. “We are boys and girls, moms and dads, aunts and uncles, grandparents, cousins, sisters and brothers. We are all of

the family that makes up this great planet.� Esquimalt-Juan de Fuca MP Randall Garrison also spoke to the crowd Saturday. The NDP politician, who is also the federal LGBT critic, is one of six openly gay Members of Parliament. “It’s really important to have that presence, to show that we are part of Canada, we are part of the community and to demand that we be treated not with tolerance, but with acceptance and equal rights,� said Garrison. Garrison added he’s currently working on a private member’s bill to provide equal rights for transgender Canadians. wpaterson@kelownacapnews.com

â–ź CELEBRATION OF LIFE

Family, friends gather to remember Jennifer Cusworth Wade Paterson STAFF REPORTER

For Jean and Terry Cusworth, Saturday was not about remembering the night their daughter, Jennifer, died. It was about remembering the 19 years she lived. Jean and Terry were joined by about 40 others—which included the Cusworths’ friends and family, as well as Kelowna Mounties and lawyers who were involved in Jennifer’s case—at Okanagan College. The celebration began with a smudging ceremony, then each guest

shared memories and stories of Jennifer, who was killed in 1993. Jean began by telling stories that brought laughter to the group. According to Jean, when Jennifer was in her teens, she had a boyfriend who she wanted her mother to meet. “I looked at him and said (to Jennifer), ‘Nice buns.’ She said, ‘Mom!’ I said, ‘Well he does.’ “Two weeks later he came for dinner. He was sitting at the table and said, ‘Mrs. Cusworth, I understand you like my buns.’ I said, ‘Jennifer!’ She said, ‘Got you, Mom.’� Another story Jean

told was an example of how her daughter took after her. One night, while at a bar with her daughter, she noticed the bartender come over to Jennifer and say, “How are you doing, ice water?� “I thought: Why are you calling my daughter, ice water?� said Jean. It turned out, Jennifer would always have one alcoholic drink at the bar, and then switch to glasses of ice water for the rest of the night. Ironically, Jean did the exact same thing growing up, but never told Jennifer about it. Terry also told stor-

ies and read a letter his daughter wrote for him. In October, 2011, Neil Snelson was found guilty of manslaughter in Jennifer’s death. At the time, Jean said she was “extremely disappointed� with the verdict. “I believe the jury did the best they could, but I believe their efforts fell short of the justice Jennifer deserved,� she said in 2011. In January, Snelson’s lawyer Wade Jenson filed an appeal, aiming to overturn the verdict.

▼ WESTSIDE

Work on Westshore Estates sports field expansion starts The Regional District of the Central Okanagan is expanding a community sports field at Westshore Estates Community Park, adjacent to the subdivision off the north end of Westside Road. Tree removal and rough grading of the expanded sports field area will begin today. Westshore Estates Community Park will remain open to the public during construction.

and the provision of fencing, associated goal posts and backstops for a 5,000 square metre natural turf soccer and slo-pitch playing field. Funding for the project is being provided by the regional district and through a grant from the Ministry of Community, Sport and Cultural Development’s Community Recreation Program. Fire wood from the tree removal portion of this work will be available, free of charge, for residents and community members at two locations at either end of the park, near Bluebird Drive and Westshore Drive.

HOCKEY TALKS…NHL Players Association executive director Donald Fehr prepares to head into meetings with NHL players on Monday afternoon at the Delta Grand Hotel in Kelowna.

City agrees to pave paradise and put up a parking lot Kathy Michaels STAFF REPORTER

weight with the ALR,” said Mayor Walter Gray, before council unanimously supported the proposal to put a dealership on the west side of Highway 97, north of Stremel Road. Around 43 per cent of Kelowna’s land base is ALR, Gray said, and that percentage hasn’t changed in 25 years. All in all, he estimated the stewards of local land have served the city well, but with the proposal at hand, the pros outweigh the cons. Councillors learned from developer Keith

Funk that the pending car dealership—which will also have to win over the Agricultural Land Commission and the public before it’s built—is in an area that was primarily farm land, but, over the years, has had a less-thanideal yield due to a number of challenges—both geographical and human. That said, ALR needs won’t be completely denied if the project gets a green light. “We’re trying to offer a winning outcome,” said Funk, noting they were offering measures that would allow agricul-

ture and outdoor lovers to benefit. The developer is proposing to exclude 3.3 hectares of the 6.61 hectare lot, to construct the dealership, with the remaining portion staying in the ALR to be used for a public park and community garden. It’s also proposed that the topsoil, which is coveted within the farming community, be distributed to agriculture land in need. “The net gain to agriculture is about 100 acres,” Funk estimated, adding later that a Glenmore family farm has already expressed interest in buying the topsoil. That, and the fact the land is in a very industrial area won over Coun.

Andre Blanleil. “My theory is that this land is between two major highways (Highway 97 and the North Okanagan Connector), a train track system and a major wetland and creek area,” he said. “I’ve never seen this

as a great area to be farming…I think this makes sense.”

Coun. Robert Hobson had a more difficult time throwing his support behind the project, although he did, ultimately, “For me this is a bit of a cleft stick. Two things (I like) are happening, more taxes and more park,” he said. The negative, however, is that the proposed lot is on high capability agricultural land. “It’s class two, which we don’t have a lot of within the city,” he said. But, consensus was that it was a good tradeoff. Council’s comments will be submitted to the Agricultural Land Commission when it’s their turn to deal with the project. kmichaels@kelownacapnews.com

NEWS ▼ WESTBANK

Museum celebrates one year Wade Paterson STAFF REPORTER

It’s been a successful first year for the Westbank Museum. Last year, as the ribbon was cut in front of the Dobbin Road building, hopes were high the new location would bring on a lot more traffic. According to museum president Margaret Jackson, that’s exactly what has happened. “At seven-and-a-half months we had almost 8,300 visitors from all over the world,” said Jackson. “It’s been fantastic.” Over 100 people were on hand for the anniversary celebration Saturday, which featured outdoor exhibits, live entertainment and refreshments. Jackson said it helps that the museum shares the same building as the Visitor’s Information Centre. “People come off the

road and they are always taken aback and leave a little refreshed. “We get to be the front porch of the community to them.” Jackson is especially appreciative of the museum’s current state considering she and her family were nearly forced to shut down the operation a few years ago. “We just had a waning of board members and volunteers, so it was a struggle for me to keep it open.” After the district amalgamated, Jackson informed council members of her dilemma. “They put some thought into it and asked us to hold back (from closing) for a little while. They came up with an idea—instead of demolishing this building when the police relocated, it would probably work for the museum.” Jackson said her parents, Clare and Billie

Small, worked “tirelessly” to make the dream of a Westbank Museum come alive. “Anyone who had a tour with my father would always remember it; he gave the best stories of all the things that were there.” West Kelowna Mayor Doug Findlater said the entire community owes a “debt of gratitude” to Clare Small. “This was his dream… we have to remember how this came about.” According to Findlater, the timing worked out nicely for moving the museum into the new location. “When we incorporated four-and-a-half years ago, the museum was probably the furthest thing from our minds; however, the opportunity presented itself,” said Findlater. “This is really good for our sense of identity as a community.” Jackson hopes the

Pro-life flag won’t fly A cluster bomb of negative publicity about a pro-life flag prompted Kelowna city council to take a more neutral approach to supporting local causes Monday. Last week Kelowna almost agreed to become the first B.C. city to fly a pro-life group’s flag over its City Hall. The flag would have flown during the last week of September—deemed Protect Human Life Week by the city—but was rejected for including the words “from conception

to natural death.” A second flag design was then submitted to the city with the words “prolife” on it, but a proposal made in council chambers during the regular Monday meeting will let the city’s decision makers off the hook. Coun. Luke Stack introduced a motion that the city make a policy to fly the municipal, provincial and Canadian flags— and nothing else. “I’d be prepared to second that motion,” said Coun. Gail Given, noting

that the media attention was potentially divisive. “We need to reflect the needs of all our citizens,” she said. Coun. Andre Blanleil pointed out that nobody could argue with being proud of the city, the province and the country. Council unanimously approved the motion, meaning no flags will fly, including the Kelonwa Pro-Life flag Tweaks to the bylaw will eventually be put forward. kmichaels@kelownacapnews.com

CHEFS…Four

Resources now available For pregnant women in several Interior Health communities, information, resources and services to get the best start for mom and baby are just a quick phone call away. Interior Health is has announced the launch of its prenatal registry service here as well as in tCranbrook, Kimberley,Nelson/ Castlegar, Trail, Vernon, Kamloops, Williams Lake and the Cariboo and Chilcotin. “Making it easy to get answers to questions that women may have while pregnant will help moms and babies get a healthy start to life,” said CaribooChilcotin MLA Donna Barnett. The registry is a tollfree confidential phone line, 1-855-868-7710, that women can call to register for the birth of their babies, ask questions and get valuable information about services available to support a healthy pregnancy. When a woman calls the toll-free number she

will speak directly with a public health nurse who can answer her questions and connect her with supports and services that meet her individual needs. A wide range of information and resources are available in areas such as nutrition, tobacco use, substance abuse, sexual health, safety, immunization, breastfeeding, parenting and more. “Not all pregnant women have the same needs. Some may be calling to sign up for prenatal classes, others may have questions about healthy eating and some may just want to know what supports are available in their communities,” said Anne Clarotto, promotion and prevention program director with Interior Health. “Instead of calling a few places to get this information they can now call one number. It’s like a one-stop shop for a healthy pregnancy.” The prenatal registry will operate from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Pacific Stan-

dard Time and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mountain Standard Time, Tuesdays through Fridays. The service is available for all pregnant women in the pilot communities. Interior Health is implementing the prenatal registry using a phased approach and plans to expand the service to all communities within the region in early 2013. “We are very excited about this new service and we know all pregnant women in the Interior Health region can benefit from the ease and convenience of the prenatal registry,” said Clarotto. “We will use this pilot phase to make the program the best it can be and we look forward to being able to offer it across the region in the near future.” Women are encouraged to call the registry early in their pregnancy. The sooner they call, the sooner they can learn about and get connected to, valuable services, supports and information.

Don’t think of the past or the future: just focus your attention calmly on the present moment. 2. Visualization – get in a comfortable position, close your eyes and create a peaceful visualization (anything that makes you feel relaxed). 3. Aerobic Exercise – aerobic exercise has a unique capacity to exhilarate and relax, to provide stimulation and calm, to counter depression and dissipate stress. 4. Listen to music – research shows that listening to 30 minutes of classical music may produce calming effects equivalent to taking 10 mg of Valium. 5. Get a massage – according to The Franklin Institute web site on the human brain and stress, “Massage releases endorphins that calm the peripheral nervous system.”

Getting started with your own entrepreneurial dream

I

find myself feeling rather professorial this week concerning the glory of pursuing and achieving the entrepreneurial dream. And so, I thought I would tackle an approach that might spur us along in our journey to become of a mindset toward the entrepreneurial dream attainment. Let’s do it. The economy has moved a dark cloud over the world, leaving some people without hope of sunshine. But others see a light between the clouds. These optimistic individuals have an opportunity to take a step to pursue their entrepreneurial dream like never before. It’s no surprise that unemployed workers, professionals and graduates choose entrepreneurship over months of job

ENTREPRENEURIAL SPIRIT

Joel Young search misery. If there are no jobs, why not create your own? We are taught that if we follow the rules of the world, we will achieve our measure of happiness and reward. Unfortunately, these rules do not always stimulate creativity and passion, rather, they demand conformity. So get ready to break the rules, have some fun, follow your heart and ready yourself to unearth your entrepreneurial dream. Discovering your

tht dream and following through is, unquestionably, an adventure. You may not be absolutely sure of where it will lead you, but what I can offer you with unyielding conviction is, the act of achieving each step is amazing. Every step you take in your entrepreneurial journey brings you closer to accomplishing the dream. First, believe in yourself. Know that you will make the right decisions for you to turn your passion into your reality. Beliefs seem to influence reality. Believe in yourself and your entrepreneurial idea and your energy and passion will attract others like a magnet to help you to succeed. Put your ideas down in writing. There is no

doubt whatsoever in my mind, that as you are reading this column there is an idea burning inside you, waiting to be born. It’s there when you wake in the morning and when you lay your head down to sleep. It feels like a restless friend. So grab some paper, or a napkin, a ticket stub or the everpresent notebook that I carry religiously (courtesy of my Capital News editor) and write it down. Your dream idea is now born and alive, ready for you to spawn its growth. Buy yourself time. Pick a specific time each week to work solely on your idea. Let nothing distract you, this is your special time. (I use a 14 column accounting tablet to diagram my actionable ideas, no matter where I

think they may lead me and it helps me visualize my thoughts at a glance across the broader spectrum of the 14-column landscape. Commit yourself to the time and you will find yourself moving closer to bringing your dream to life. Keep an open mind and trust your instincts. This is not the time to judge yourself or other people. Listen to others around you who you may have engaged in your dream journey and listen and learn from them. Make a why-I-can’tdo-this list and include everything that you think may impede you from implementing your idea Then tear the list up. Yes, I know what you are saying, but. realize there is nothing on this list to hold you back if you

are willing to work hard and take chances. Tell yourself the only barrier to achieving your dream is yourself. Starting tonight, create your to-do list. Create your to do list every night and keep the lists in a book for reference and check off. Starting tomorrow, attack the to-do list with gusto and courage, prioritize your list and do the harder tasks first. Check off your completions then congratulate yourself for your accomplishments. Keep your word to others and yourself because your credibility can take you places and reward you beyond your imagination. Create your idea sanctuary. Set up your comfortable space surrounded by those tools that you

feel you will need to keep you focussed and assist your progress on your personal “idea train.� Lastly, don’t delay. Start today as your imagination awaits. If you allow yourself to procrastinate, your chase of the entrepreneurial dream may be lost and not reach manifestation. Please always remember if you dare to take this journey of journeys, the beginning starts with your heart and your passion. These suggestions can help you identify your heart’s motivation and build a solid foundation under your dream.

â–ź ADMISSIONS

Getting into UBCO means more than just making the grade Undergraduates’ life experiences now count in addition to academic achievements. UBC is expanding its undergraduate admissions policies to ensure that the best—as well as the brightest—students have every opportunity for a university education. A broad-based admissions process will be in place for 2013/14 at UBC’s Okanagan campus. Applicants will be considered on the basis of such things as their life experiences, out-of-theclassroom learning and personal goals in addition

to academic performance. Faculty members believe broad-based admissions will showcase a student’s characteristics and strengths, enhance classroom discussion and help differentiate talents aside from academic standings in order to make an informed decision about applicants. “We feel a great deal of excitement about doing a better job selecting the best possible students for UBC by valuing things that all educators prize,� said Gordon Binsted, dean of the faculty of health and social development. The faculty comprises

the schools of health and exercise sciences, nursing, and social work. “For our programs, the reflection of a student’s success goes beyond the grading process and lets us differentiate values. We can have a better look at competencies, leadership and other attributes of students who have a chance for success. For us, that’s a big differentiator.� Essentially, students will be able to tell their own story. Applicants will answer four to six personal profile questions, in addition to providing secondary-school marks. The questions give applicants

an opportunity to talk about their learning, life experiences and goals. Jan Cioe, head of the psychology unit of the Irving K. Barber School of Arts and Sciences, said the current level of aca-

criteria for major entrance scholarships, international major entrance scholarships and the outstanding international student award. Typically, UBC receives more than 30,000

applications annually to undergraduate programs. Last year, UBC welcomed 2,049 new firstyear students to its Okanagan campus and 5,913 to its campus in Vancouver.

A proud moment all around

T

here used to be an advertisement for cigarettes that declared “You’ve come a long way, baby.” While smoking may be on the decline in today’s healthconscious society, the same sentiment could be applied to Kelowna for a different reason. Fifteen years after Walter Gray created a flap by arbitrarily dropping the word pride from a requested Gay Pride Day proclamation, he was cheered for proclaiming Pride Week in Kelowna this past Saturday. Of course such a proclam-

ation is the not the first since Gray ran afoul of the B.C. Human Rights Tribunal and then ordered a stop to all proclamations for the rest of his first series of terms in office. Gray’s 2005 successor, Sharon Shepherd quietly reinstated proclamations, including ones for the local gay, lesbian and bisexual and transgendered community, and during that time the annual Pride celebrations grew in this city. During last November’s mayoral election, Gray was asked, if he won, would he sign

a gay pride proclamation. He said yes. And, whether you feel he is sincere or not, he has been as good as his word. And, to the local LGBT community, hearing him declare Pride Week in a city once considered as unfriendly to gay people as any, the words sounded pretty sweet. The mayor deserves credit for his move and so does the LGBT community for working with him to put aside the past in order to make the future better. Kelowna has come a long

way but like any social change, there is still a ways to go. But first steps have to be taken to complete any journey. This city—and the country for that matter—is a very different place than 15 years ago. While this week is not the first Pride Week here, and not the first proclaimed by a Kelowna mayor, it does mark a change. It’s part of a growing acceptance that sexual orientation should not be what defines a person—character should be. Gray showed he has changed as have those who cheered him.

It’s time for province of B.C. to invest in her forests

T

he B.C. government’s emergency committee on timber supply has produced its report, but it leaves many of the big questions unanswered. Can the Burns Lake sawmill, destroyed by fire last winter, be given enough timber to rebuild? It’s likely, committee members concluded, if areas that are currently considered “marginally economic” are harvested. With nearly half the pine in that region dead from beetle infestation, and much of the better timber already cut, that means harvesting areas that would produce only about two thirds of the volume that is currently considered economical to log.

Will eight more sawmills have to close once the beetle-killed timber becomes too degraded to cut in the next few years? Committee members hold out hope that extending the cut to less economic timber stands can reduce this impact as well. But with the current cut far above historical levels to maximize beetle-kill harvest, some industry contraction seems inevitable. All this depends on adequate forest inventory and investment in re-

VICTORIA planting, fertilizing and VIEWS provision of additional

roads and power lines that would allow access to timber and potential bio-energy development. And that is Tom where the political fight Fletcher lies ahead. The timber supply committee delivered a unanimous report, despite the harsh divisions between the B.C. Liberal and NDP members who serve on it. NDP forest critic Norm Macdonald, vice chair of the committee, agreed it did good work during

the seven months it has toured affected areas of the B.C. Interior. But he said the roots of the problem go back a decade, to when the B.C. Liberals started reducing support for forest health just as the beetle epidemic was spreading. Ten years ago the government removed the obligation for the province to reforest areas affected by disease and fire. This was not only at the peak of the epidemic, it was one year before devastating wildfires raced through the Interior in the summer of 2003. “In 2002, the government removed its obligation to replant those areas, and cut the budget by 90 per

cent,” Macdonald told me. “The three-year budget that’s in front of us is keeping on the downward slide, and it’s not what people in communities are saying is the answer. So that has to change.” The opposition, the auditor general and various forest experts have been blasting the government for the degraded state of the timber inventory, at a time when environmental changes have been sweeping. Steve Thomson, minister of the newly amalgamated forests, lands and natural resource operations ministry, points to the urgent efforts to upgrade

Getting soaked by Rutland Water Works

To the editor: My wife and I moved into a house from a condo. We are very happy to have a yard to go out into and enjoy. Making changes inside and out to make it our home. Spending some hard earned cash on new fencing, paint, new appliances and so on—you get the picture. Shortly after moving in, June 14, 2012, we got a notice from Rutland Water Works advising us to get our account set up or get cut off. We did all that before we actually moved in. No matter. Away we go to the office on Dougall Road where the woman advised us that after 15,000 gallons of water in a consumption period (the consumption period being three months, April, May and June 2012) we would be charged extra for the excess above the base rate of $46.32. We paid a de-

posit of $35, refundable, and a $10 transfer fee. I remember saying that 15,000 gallons seemed like a lot of water. Back home we go. On Aug. 17 we got the water bill. It stated that for the last two weeks of the consumption period we used 3,000 gallons of water. There are only two of us in the house, I watered the grass once in that time period. Using the info from this usage, in a threemonth period I would have used 36,000 gallons of water—twice the 15,000 gallon base limit. Seems like a lot of water to us. Anyway, I went to the Rutland Water office to check if using 3,000 gallons in two weeks was normal. The woman who was working that day

was quite helpful. All my questions were answered with “I don’t know.” Then she said: “You water too much.” Excuse me? says I. She repeated: “You water too much.” I said thank you and left thinking that she didn’t understand what I was asking. I told my father-in-law about it and he was just as mad at Rutland Water as I was. His bill for the same consumption period was for 77,000 gallons of water. He has automatic sprinklers set for every third day. So my question to you folks out there is the same as I had for Rutland Water: Is 3,000 gallons in a two-week period normal? As a first timer with water bills I am concerned that this is high.

Bucket brigade needed to water fruit orchard To the editor: Re: Vandals Threaten Kelowna Orchardist’s Entire Crop, Aug 7 Capital News. I was disgusted to

learn of the targeted destruction of Mr. Mann’s irrigation system, especially in the light of the recent shooting in Wisconsin. We have to show these

racist bigots that we don’t want their kind in our community. A strong show of support from the non-Sikh community in Kelowna is

needed. It would be wonderful if a bucket brigade was formed to daily water Mr. Mann’s fruit trees to keep them alive until the system is up and running

again. How about it, Kelowna? John McIntyre, Kelowna

▼ ENERGETIC SAMARITANS

Going the extra several miles to help visitors To the editor: My husband and I (both retired and from the UK) had a couple of weeks holiday in B.C., spending three days in and around Kelowna. On July 2 we took a recommended hike along the old Kettle Valley Railway, starting at the Myra Valley Canyon. We were very impressed with the fact that, since the fire in 2003, all the damaged trestle bridges had been restored, offering such a unique pathway, high above Kelowna, for hikers and cyclists. As we were making our way across the only steel trestle bridge, at the head of the valley, my camera case (with camera) slipped from my shoulder and, bouncing once on the decking, rolled through a gap in the old rail

bed. We watched it become smaller and smaller, till, as a black dot, it disappeared from sight into the gorge at least 100 metres beneath. We returned to the car park quite disheartened and reported the mishap to the two sympathetic bike rental guys there. With them was a young lady, Sammy Jo Sheppard, who declared that she often hiked down into the canyons and would be happy to see if she could find my camera in a day or so. Obviously, we were very impressed at her suggestion but still doubted we’d ever see it again. Amazingly, after three separate attempts together with her boyfriend Jordan and a friend Noah, on the 7th of July they found my camera and, incredibly, it was still in working

the government’s detailed picture of the state of the forests, so it can consider new cutting, planting and fertilizing efforts. But there’s no denying that he came to the job in a crisis that will take more spending in the future, and he will have a hard time finding it as Finance Minister Kevin Falcon looks to balance the books for the 2013 election. If nothing else, the

order. They took some pics of themselves—the three heroes. Sammy then delivered the camera to Keith and Judy, at Joyce House B & B where we stayed in Kelowna. They then sent it on to us (then in Calgary) via Express Post, just as we were setting off for Banff and Jasper. So that worked out amazingly well. It would be marvellous if you could include this story in your paper as the dedication of these young folks in resolving my plight was outstanding. Leonie Runcie, Britain

pine beetle epidemic has forced the B.C. government to consider some of the intensive forest management that we hear about in Scandinavia, one of those places that supplies B.C. with wood furniture. And it has prompted renewed interest in offering new forest tenures to aboriginal communities with unresolved resource claims. Under current law, the government can only dir-

ect award new forest tenures to aboriginal communities. So part of the committee’s proposed solution is to “expedite negotiations” with the Burns Lake First Nations to give them a chance to harvest some of the marginally economic forest areas that remain.

NEWS ▼ MENTAL HEALTH

Depression and anxiety worldwide

I

t is common to hear people say that certain psychiatric diagnoses are purely a product of our culture—that conditions like depression or anxiety only exist here in the Western world. Although it is true that different cultures may perceive, or label, mental health in different ways, new research shows that depression and anxiety exist in every society in the world today. In the world’s most comprehensive studies of depression and anxiety to date, researchers from the University of Queensland recently published data from some 480,000 people in 91 countries. In the two separate studies, participants were surveyed about clinical depression and anxiety and both conditions were found to be serious health problems around the world. Non-Western societies reported fewer people with anxiety dis-

When it comes to depression, the statistics have an opposite trend— more people are depressed in non-Western societies than in Western ones. Nine per cent of people in Asia and the Middle East experienced clinical depression compared to four per cent of those in North and South America, New Zealand, Australia and East Asian

countries. Perhaps not surprisingly, depression is higher in places where there is conflict (although this is not the case with anxiety). The lead author for the depression study, Alize Ferrari, did caution that data was difficult to get from some of the lower income countries. She also stated that more research is needed into the methods used for diagnosing depression and measuring its prevalence in non-Western countries as well as how it occurs over the lifespan. Head researchers from the anxiety study also stated it is tricky to compare mental disorders across different countries and cultures because of the many factors influencing the reported prevalence. We do know that across cultures, depression and anxiety seem to affect more women than men and that these are chronic health conditions

Peachland skatepark design input sought

Peachland is looking for input from the public on the design of a new skate park on the south side of the tennis courts in Lambly Park. “There is far more value engaging the youth and other potential users in the project rather than the design team and my department going at it alone,” said Cheryl Wiebe, director of community services. “We want this park to be multi-use in nature and designed with the community needs in mind.” A design workshop will be held on Aug. 22 with youth and stakeholders. New Line Skateparks Inc. will bring concept drawings to the meeting. Final designs will be presented to the community in September. The skate park is expected to be built by late fall or early spring 2013. Those interested in taking part are asked to contact Wiebe at 250-7672133 or e-mail cwiebe@ peachland.ca.

Alleviating the problems from shift work

A

bout 25 per cent of the population does shift work, either long-term night shifts or work schedules where employees change or rotate shifts between daytime and evening or night schedules. Being constantly tired is a typical complaint of shift workers, often described as “jet lag.” Shift work can also lead to health problems including insomnia, chronic fatigue and gastrointestinal disorders, and can interfere with regular social activities and family life. The body is naturally attuned to a circadian rhythm—many of our body’s functions follow a daily rhythm or a 24-hour cycle. Sleeping, waking, digestion, secretion of adrenalin, body temperature, blood pressure, pulse and many other important body functions and human behaviour are regulated by this 24-hour cycle. These rhythmical processes are synchronized to allow for high ac-

This disorientation can lead to feelings of fatigue and disorientation, or “jet lag.” Also, exposure to light at night can alter sleep-activity patterns and suppress melatonin production, leading to insomnia or difficulty sleeping. Frequent changes in schedule and disruption to circadian rhythms can lead to chronic fatigue and other health problems, including higher risk for heart attack and cardiovascular conditions, digestive problems such as indigestion, heartburn,

stomachache and loss of appetite, and insomnia or sleeping disorders. Shift work can also interfere with medications and the medical treatment of some diseases. Because of the way that shift work disrupts the circadian rhythm, research suggests long-term shift work may also increase the risk of cancer. Shift workers are also at risk of eating a less healthy diet because the loss of appetite at night often leads to increased snacking on junk food, while fatigue may encourage the consumption of caffeinated drinks to help the worker stay awake. Acupuncture can give stellar results for improving the wellbeing and quality-of-life of shift workers. Acupuncture is very effective for many of the symptoms that accompany shift work: It can improve energy and mental clarity, resolve insomnia and correct digestive disorders. It can also

help shift workers adjust to changes in schedules or days off and help the body bounce back more quickly. One of the ways acupuncture may be particularly helpful for shift workers is the way in which it helps to normalize and regulate the body’s functions.

‘‘

RESEARCH HAS SHOWN THAT ACUPUNCTURE CAN INFLUENCE MANY SYSTEMS WITHIN THE BODY.

Research has shown that acupuncture can influence many systems within the body, including our hormones, our neurotransmitters, our immune system, our blood pressure, and our circulation, helping to correct

any functions that are out of balance or not working properly. What this means is that acupuncture may help the body to get back into its normal circadian rhythm, and help these rhythms to adjust more quickly to changes in the daily routines. One of the biggest changes that shift workers notice with acupuncture is a boost in their energy levels. There is a huge improvement in quality of life that accompanies this change, as a person is more alert both at work and through the daytime, better able to enjoy time off and to be more involved in their family and social life. Indeed, many people find that with regular treatments, shift work no longer has to take a huge toll on their personal life.

Surgery bumped because of address? A Vernon woman claims she was bumped from surgery at Kelowna General Hospital because she lives in the wrong town. Mary Obrecht was scheduled for a hip replacement at KGH yesterday, but she learned last week the procedure had been cancelled. “I was told they can’t operate on a Vernon patient because I would be taking a place away from a Kelowna patient,” said the 58-year-old. “They are penalizing the surgeon and me because of a 40-kilometre difference and an address.” Obrecht also believes the cancellation was unnecessary. “I have found out the operating room is empty then,” she said late last week. “They didn’t fill that spot,” added Obrecht, who works for a Vernonarea physician. The surgery had been booked in April and plans were made for her office

manager’s position to be covered while she was recovering. “It’s wrong. I was accepted for surgery,” she said. “You just don’t do that (cancel) a few days before the surgery.” Her surgery has now been scheduled for Vernon Jubilee Hospital Sept. 7 and it can’t come soon enough as Obrecht seeks relief from the pain. “You don’t sleep, you can’t walk a block. It’s excruciating.” Interior Health Authority officials deny Obrecht was discriminated against based on her home community. “We operate on patients from across the health authority,” said Sharon Cook, KGH director of health services. IHA says the situation arose because Obrecht’s Vernon-based surgeon was filling in for a colleague in Kelowna and decided to book some cases there, which impacted KGH’s wait list.

BUSINESS Newspaper magnate proposes $13-billion oil refinery for Kitimat

▼ BARELY LABOURING

Tom Fletcher

he summer Olympics are finally over and the four-year period of handwringing over Canadian medal results has just begun. Amidst all the drama, the achievements, the failures and the medals of various colours, the aspect of London 2012 which stood out in my mind was the controversy over athletes not trying hard enough. The whole saga kicked off with eight doubles badminton players being disqualified and sent home. Their offence was intentionally losing a match. The athletes, from China, South Korea and Indonesia appeared to be trying to manipulate the draw by intentionally losing. Apparently doing so was perceived by them as having the likely result of allowing them to avoid a more powerful Chinese team in the following round. London’s Daily Record described what happened. Top seeds Wang Xiaoli and Yu Yang of China tried to engineer defeat against Korea’s Jung Kyung-eun and Kim Ha-na. This meant they would avoid finishing top of their group and going into the same half of the draw as their compatriots. But the Koreans responded by trying to lose themselves—to the fury of organizers and fans. Spectators jeered as serves were deliberately

BLACK PRESS

David Black, chairman and owner of Black Press, is heading up a proposal to build a $13-billion oil refinery in Kitimat. Black, who owns the Kelowna Capital News as part of Black Press, announced Friday he wants to build an oil refinery at Kitimat. Black told a news conference in Vancouver that he is submitting an environmental assessment application to build a “world scale” oil refinery on behalf of Kitimat Clean Ltd., a company he owns. The application to the B.C. Environmental Assessment Office is expected this fall. The proposed refinery would be big enough to process all the diluted bitumen carried by Enbridge’s controversial proposed Northern Gateway pipeline. Black said he has had extensive discussions with Enbridge and other players in the Canadian oil industry, but none so far have offered to back the project. Black said he will use his own money to finance the proposal through environmental assessment, which he expects to cost several million dollars. After that, he said investors would be needed to complete it, assuming both the refinery and the pipeline receive approval. He has had preliminary meetings with Kitimat and Terrace councils, as well as the Haisla and Kitselas First Nations in the

Working hard, or hardly working?

DAVID BLACK, owner of Black Press, explains why he feels a new oil refinery in Kitmat makes sense, during a news conference Friday. region. The proposed site is a 3,000-hectare Crown industrial property between Terrace and Kitimat. Kitimat Mayor Joanne Monaghan spoke by phone to the news conference, offering encouragement for the proposal. But Black acknowledged he does not yet have formal support from communities or investors. “I see myself as a catalyst to make this happen,” said Black, who first proposed the idea to the province and the industry seven years ago when he was chairman of the B.C. Progress Board. Black is working with Glenn McGinnis, a consulting engineer and former manager of the Ioco oil refinery in Port Moody. “We want it (the Kitimat refinery) to be the

cleanest and greenest upgrading and refining site in the world,” McGinnis said. The refinery would produce 240,000 barrels per day of diesel, 100,000 barrels per day of gasoline and 50,000 barrels per day of kerosene or aviation fuel, refined from heavy oil. Among those attending the news conference was Art Sterritt, executive director of the Coastal First Nations, a group in the Kitimat area that has strongly opposed the pipeline proposal. Sterritt disputed Black’s assertion that a B.C. refinery “solves half of the problem” with exported oil by shipping refined gasoline, jet fuel and diesel in tankers instead of heavy crude. Those products have their own risks, Sterritt said.

Robert Smithson hit into the net and shots hit wide, forcing referee Thorsten Berg to warn the players. A second Korean pair, Ha Jung-eun and Kim Min-jung, then failed to play properly against Indonesia whose players—Meiliana Jauhari and Greysia Polii—also became involved. Badminton’s governing body charged the eight athletes with “not using one’s best efforts to win a match” and “conducting oneself in a manner that is abusive or detrimental to the sport.” One team’s coach blamed China for triggering the whole farce, saying: “The Chinese started this. They didn’t want to meet each other in the semis.” Ah, yes, the well-worn, but rarely successful, defence of ‘They started it!’ While the antics of the badminton players were undoubtedly embarrassing to their sport and their nations, not trying hard isn’t exactly unprecedented in the Olympics. Anyone who has watched the qualifying heats in sports from swimming to sprinting knows full well that the top athletes routinely cruise through qualifying, saving themselves for

the final. I watched Usain Bolt have a relaxing jog through the men’s 200 metre sprint qualifying. He was, quite noticeably, not going as fast as he was capable. And who could blame him? Why risk pulling up lame in a qualifier when all that counts is a medal (gold, in his case)? As a side note, I felt a little badly for the poor guys well behind him who were obviously running for all they were worth.

‘‘

ANYONE WHO HAS WATCHED THE QUALIFYING HEATS KNOWS… TOP ATHLETES CRUISE THROUGH QUALIFYING…

The same is true for many Olympic sports in which a large field is whittled down to a few medal finalists. Does anyone truly think that the USA men’s basketball team did its absolute best in every minute of every game it played? And, what about the greatest “don’t work too hard” Olympic sport of them all, race walking? That’s a sport in which the entire point is to not go as fast as one can. It’s beyond me how this goofy activity ever found its way into the Olympics. One online source describes race walking in

this way: “Few objects in Olympic track and field are more scrutinized than race walkers’ legs and feet. Sharp-eyed race walking officials are constantly looking out for “lifting” violations, i.e., walkers who cross the line into running.” We definitely wouldn’t want to encourage running. It’s only the Olympics, after all. But really, could any of us live up to the pressure to give it our all at work, every minute, every day? Sure, we all feel that we work hard and that we are doing our “best” to produce the desired results. But nobody and I really mean nobody, can give 100 per cent of himself or herself 100 per cent of the time. Most of us, though, are a little better at disguising our 75 per cent moments than were the Olympic badminton players. Maybe their real offence was doing it in such a blatant, shameless fashion, ensuring they would be caught and made an example for other wouldbe slacker competitors. They’ve now got four years to perfect their ‘I’m trying without really trying’ technique. This subject matter is provided for general informational purposes only and is not intended as legal advice.

T

he three biggest reasons for couples who decide to split—money issues, family issues and sex issues. I will leave the topic of sex issues out of my column and focus on money issues blending with family issues A new marriage is a joining of two people together and joining of finances. Money issues can make a couple happy and work together in life to achieve financial goals as a team, or money issues can eventually dissolve a relationship. Most big changes happen in the first few months and years of a new relationship. You need to talk about finances. Review your “new couple” financial plan regularly. Many changes will take place over the many years of a relationship. Be honest with each other about finances. One of you has to start the con-

FISCAL FITNESS

Doreen Smith versation. Look at your combined cash flow. Review your individual debt, and make sure all debt is discussed. What debt repayments do each of you have now? Do you have other family financial commitments? What financial debt may be in your future together, for example a home, vehicle or new appliances, future travel, etc? When individuals enter a relationship or marriage, money conversation becomes part of every day life—the good, the bad, and sometimes the ugly. Most individuals have very different money personalities. Our money personality typically comes from our home life

as children watching how our parents interacted with money. Children who grow up with parents who clip coupons as a way of saving money on consumer purchases, will likely clip coupons as adults. Children whose parents live from pay cheque to pay cheque and do not have any savings may be more likely to accept the same pattern as adults. Most couples can be a blend of a saver and a

spender—totally opposites perhaps, but these couples can learn to blend their money personalities together to achieve their short and long term financial goals. Mingling money is one of the most important decisions a couple will make on the everyday mix of money. Your bank account, savings account, retirement accounts and credit cards can all be comingled. If you mingle money

you may be asked to keep track of your own personal spending. Tracking helps determine if one person is spending an excessive amount of money while the other person is not spending. Some couples maintain separate accounts throughout their relationship. It can work both ways as long as each person is content with the structure of how it is set up. It is important to handle debt as a couple.

Existing debt must be paid off as efficiently as possible. Future debt should be carefully discussed before entering the commitment to borrow money for whatever reason. Your credit rating can be negatively impacted by joining a spouse with a negative credit history. During a pre-relationship commitment, make sure you understand if there is debt and how much debt is involved be-

fore you commit to joining a spouse’s financial liabilities. Communication is key to a happy relationship and communicating about debt is key to enjoying a life long and happy relationship with the person you have chosen as your spouse.

Benvoulin Church celebrates 120 years this weekend H

ere in the Okanagan Valley and, for that matter, anywhere west of Ontario, history when it comes to non-aboriginal influence is only a couple of hundred years and almost half of that is quite sparse. It wasn’t until the 1860s when European settlers began to recognize this beautiful part of Canada as a place to raise a family, do business and enjoy a comfortable lifestyle. With this in mind when we celebrate the

FROM THE GROUND UP

Don Burnett construction of a building which is 120-years-old it is quite an event. This weekend the Central Okanagan Heritage Society is celebrating the 120th anniversary of the original opening of the Benvoulin Heritage Church which opened its

doors as a Presbyterian place of worship, later to become a United Church until it closed in 1964. For a few years, it was used as a youth centre and I recall playing there with my rock and roll band Strange Movies in the late 1960s. For a while it looked like the building would meet a similar fate to other old buildings that were past their prime; however, in 1982 the COHS began a campaign to restore it. The rescue mission was successful, and now this beauti-

ful little church building is enjoyed by so many while attending weddings, memorials and other celebrations of life. The Central Okanagan Heritage Society invites everyone to help celebrate this exciting anniversary. The festivities begin this Saturday with opening speeches at 10:15 a.m. and continue throughout the day and again on Sunday. These include a Heritage art display and sale in Reid Hall. Also, there will be guided tours of the site

which is also the home to the McIver House and the beautiful gardens surrounding it. Entertainment will be provided by musical groups such as the Iriskele Celtic Duo, Aaron Gordon and Alisa Parker. On Saturday afternoon James Avery will put on a concert at 2:30. Sunday morning at 11 a.m. there will be a church service conducted by retired Presbyterian Minister Reverend Lorna Hillian. At 2 p.m. there will be a concert by Alisa Parker. People are encouraged to bring their lawn chairs

and a picnic lunch. Beverages and home made cupcakes will be available for dessert for a small fee, otherwise there is no charge for this wonderful family event. I encourage anyone who enjoys living here in the Central Okanagan to take in the weekend celebration at Benvoulin Heritage Park. It is a fact that when the church was built it was thought this would be the terminus of the planned railway and therefore be the centre of the new community of Kelowna. I

think it is somewhat ironic that today it almost is at the geographical centre of a much expanded city. Thank you to the City of Kelowna and the Central Okanagan Heritage Society for preserving this beautiful place. For more information go to okheritagesocietycom.

The Protect Seniors from Fraud program— developed with the expertise and assistance of North American security experts—provides family caregivers with important tools at ProtectSeniorsFromFraud.com. Included is a criminal target scale which can help family caregivers assess how likely their senior is to be the potential target of a scam. A senior fraud protection kit also is available from the local franchise office. According to the RCMP, isolation and social changes in a senior’s life can often lead to a heightened sense of vulnerability. The demographics of an aging population and the sophistication of scammers can add up to big losses, both financially and emotionally—for older adults. What makes con artists difficult to capture is the lack of reporting of this type of crime, experts note. According to the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre seniors are particularly susceptible to fraud schemes because their generation tends to be more trusting and less likely to end conversations.

First-time champions take the Apple Triathlon “…it was cool to have all the spectators, all the cheers, it was really fun.” Ellen Pennock Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

For pretty much every stroke, pedal and step of the way on Sunday, Andrew Russell’s thoughts were with one very special person. The 30-year-old from Revelstoke dedicated his final appearance at the Pushor Mitchell Apple Triathlon to his terminally ill mom, Ann Russell. And he couldn’t have asked for a better result on a scorching Kelowna afternoon as Russell captured the elite Olympic distance race in one hour 56 minutes 21 seconds. Russell, who trains in Victoria, finished the 1.5 km swim, 40 km bike, and 10 km run nine seconds ahead of fellow Canadian Andrew McCartney of Victoria. “It means a lot to me,” said an emotional Russell minutes after the race. “It’s my seventh year in the elite and to win here as close to home as possible, it’s a really special moment. “I really did it for my mom, she’s quite sick. And this is the end of my short-course career, so there’s no better way to finish it off.” For the first time in five years, the Apple Triathlon didn’t serve as the Canadian championships. Coupled with the Olympics being held earlier this month, some of the biggest names in Canadian triathlon, including Simon Whitfield, Kirk Jones and Paula Findlay, didn’t com-

pete in Kelowna. Still, it didn’t take any of the sheen off Ellen Pennock’s win in the women’s elite race on Sunday. In her first try at the elite level, the 19-year-old Calgary native and University of Victoria student won the 2012 Apple title convincingly in 2:10:04. American Anna Battiata was second in 2:11:02. Pennock first began coming to the Apple as a 14-year-old when she took part in the Kids of Steel camp. “In the past, I competed in juniors and always just watched the big girls race,” said Pennock. “I was so revved up to compete in the big race for the first time, it was cool to have all the spectators, all the cheers, it was really fun. It was nice to win.”

In the boys 8-9 group, Kelowna’s Kael Murphy captured first place in 20:47.

SPORTS ▼ SUN FOOTBALL

Frustrating loss with some pluses Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

As always, the bottom line for the Okanagan Sun is earning two points each time the B.C. Football Conference club steps onto the field. And while Gavin Lake’s troops fell an agonizing hair short of that objective on Saturday in Nanaimo, a 30-29 defeat at the hands of the Vancouver Island Raiders gave the Sun a clearer view of just what’s possible in 2012. As much as it pains the new head coach to swallow the loss, Lake sees more positives than negatives from a young club with 17 new starters in the lineup. “In terms of where we came from and where we are now, we’ve taken another leap forward as a football team, and we’ll continue to do so,” said Lake. “We’re close to a month in, we’re now getting our rhythm and the guys are starting to gel. That was an inexperienced week 3 team against a team that is young, too but has won six B.C. titles. We feel like the direction we’re heading in is

sound.” The Sun (1-2) hung with the Raiders (2-0-1) from the opening whistle Saturday and looked poised to engineer an upset for their first win at Caledonia Park since 2005. In the late stages of the fourth quarter, Sun linebacker Alexander Hupe picked off all-time BCFC passing leader JordanYantz to set his team up at the six-yard line. Two unsuccessful running plays later, with the score 30-28, a potential game-winning field goal attempt from 10 yards out by third-year Sun kicker Steve McFadyen sailed wide left and yielded just a single point. “I don’t want to throw anyone under the bus,” Lake said of the missed kick. “These are kids who don’t get paid to play. We don’t have Scott Norwoods (Buffalo Bills) who get paid millions of dollars. “It was a week-3 kick in junior football. We’ll have to look at that.” While Lake regretted a missed opportunity for two points, Raiders’ coach Matt Blokker considered his club fortunate to escape with the win.

GREG SAKAKI/BLACK PRESS

OKANAGAN SUN receiver Ben White is dragged down by Vancouver Island Raiders defensive back Arriel Fabrio after making a catch in B.C. Football Conference action Saturday in Nanaimo. “We got lucky…” Blokker told the Nanaimo Bulletin. “Sometimes corny things happen in sports if you start believing and I think we really believed.” Luck and breaks aside, Lake had more complimentary than critical comments about his football team’s effort. Rookie quarterback Cam Bedore threw a trio of touchdown passes to Ben White, Bobby Davis and Jesse Kendall. Linebacker Alexander Hupe, in his first game with the Sun, turned in a couple of big plays on defense retur-

ning a fumble 40 yards for a touchdown in the second quarter, and had one of three picks off Yantz. Sun defensive lineman Steven Doege added two more sacks to his evergrowing career-leading total (36) and a forced a fumble. “Offensively, we have

to run the ball a little bit better,” Lake said, looking ahead to future games. “Our offensive line did a really good job of protecting (Cam) Bedore. Jordan Yantz got hit a lot more than Cam and he threw three interceptions, so our defense did a pretty good job.

“We have to look at big picture,” added Lake, “and this team is beginning to gel. “The spirit is strong and it’s a very good group we have.” The Sun will see just how much they’ve progressed since opening week this Saturday night

when they battle the unbeaten Rams in Langley. The Rams were a 4214 winner over the Sun in the Aug. 4 season opener at the Apple Bowl. Okanagan’s next home action is Saturday, Sept. 8 against the Westshore Rebels. whenderson@kelownacapnews.com

Bowey golden with Canada Kelowna Rockets’ defenceman Madison Bowey is enjoying his first ever medal in international hockey. The Winnipeg native was part of Team Canada’s gold medal-winning performance over the weekend at the Memorial of Ivan Hlinka world under-18 hockey championship in Slovakia and the Czech Republic. Canada clinched the tournament title for the fifth consecutive year with

Madison Bowey a 4-0 win over Finland in

Saturday’s championship game in Piestany, Slovakia. Nathan MacKinnon of the Halifax Mooseheads scored three goals in the final, as the Canadians won all five of their games at the annual championship. The 6-foot-1, 194pound Bowey played in all five games, registering one assist and six penalty minutes. It was his second tour of duty with Hockey Can-

ada, having played with Team West last season at the Under 17 World Challenge in Windsor, Ont. Bowey, 17, had eight goals and 13 assists in 57 games in his rookie season in the WHL in 201112. He is eligible for the NHL entry draft in he summer of 2013. Bowey and the Rockets will open up the WHL team’s main training camp next week at Prospera Place.

▼ TRAPSHOOTING

Lutz on target in Washington A successful season on the competitive trapshooting circuit continued for Jake Lutz recently in Olympia, Wash. The 14-year-old from Kelowna competed in the sub-junior category at the Grand Pacific Trapshooting Tournament and came home with a handful of awards. Lutz, the B.C. junior champion, shot a total of 1,600 targets during the week-long competition, July 22 to 28. Jake is classed as a

AA shooter in singles and handicap, and a B shooter in doubles. In addition to taking first as the high sub-junior champion, Lutz also won the YES Scholarship title and took home $700 in education money. In two singles events Lutz shot an amazing 199 out of 200 targets, tying him with some of the top shooters (AAA) from across Oregon, Washington and California. He also won the shootoff, giving him runner-

up honours in the singles competition for all classes. “My handicaps were a little low, but I was really happy with the way it all went,” said Lutz. “I was never expecting to go down and do as well as I did. It was a lot of fun.” Jake was also on the team representing British Columbia which placed second overall at the Grand Pacific. With Lutz’s solid week of shooting, his singles average jumps up to 97.2

per cent at the standard 16 yards. He gained a yardshooting handicap at 94 per cent, as well as 88 per cent at the doubles event. Lutz’s goal now is to make the PITA (Pacific International Trapshooting Association) all-star team for 2012. Lutz won eight medals and the singles, doubles and handicap junior titles at the B.C. Provincial Trapshooting Championships earlier this year in Vernon.

OF THE WEEK

Kelowna Men’s Soccer League scores DIVISION ONE

Modern Furniture Pikey’s picked up their second consecutive KMSL division one title on Thursday without even having to hit the field. With Dakoda’s Celtic forfeiting their match versus the Pikey’s, the goal differential was too large to be caught by Brandt’s Creek Pub FC. Knowing in advance of their game, the Pubbers were noticeably flat for their first five minutes of ttheir match versus LCSC Woody’s Pub. However, it wasn’t more than 10 mitnutes in that Brandt’s opened the scoring through Sean Murphy. A game changing play occurred 20 minutes in with Morgan Marrs being taken down on a breakaway, this led to the Woody’s defender getting ejected and leaving them a man short. Matt Arruda stepped up to take the penalty to make it 2-0. From there on out, Brandt’s cruised to victory adding another three goals with Rene Trozzo picking up a pair and Murphy completing his double. In a meaningless game, placing-wise, Illegal Aliens battled to a 3-3 draw with Ecora FC. Ecorra raced out to an early 3-0 at half but after an injury and a couple red cards, they were left light on the pitch and gave up three rgoals in the second half to the Alien’s Daniel Perju, two of which were penalty kicks. r In a battle to stay alive for the playoffs, Kon Kast Stallions barely got past

r

last place Boca Juniors, 3-2. John Saufferer, Mike Gomes, and Andrew Purnell got the markers as Kon Kast hung onto the final playoff spot. In the final game of the week, a chippy affair left SOB FC upsetting Subcity/Executive Flooring 4-1. Even with the loss, Subcity held onto seventh spot and ensuring a first round match versus Brandt’s Creek Pub FC. First round of playoffs for division one starts on Aug. 28 with the following first-round battles occurring throughout Kelowna (check kmsl.ca for times and fields): • Modern Furniture Pikeys vs Kon Kast Stallions • Brandt’s Creek Pub FC vs Subcity/Executive Flooring • Ecora FC vs LCSC Woody’s Pub • Illegal Aliens vs

DIVISION TWO Euro FC and InvisiBulls both squandered opportunities to pull away from each other in the standings as they both pikked up rare losses in Week 18 of KMSL action. With a depleted lineup, the now seventh-place Barcekelona team were able to pick off a rare win from Euro FC, 2-0. Invisi-Bulls on the other hand ran into a hot Lifeworks Chiropractic side that came into the game undefeated in 14. After a scoreless first half, John Stanisiewski opened the scoring for the Chiropractors and Daniel Perju added another for a 2-0 win. The win puts Lifeworks within two points of first, making it a threehorse race with two games

remaining in the regular season. FBFC battled their way to a 2-2 draw with YOLO FC to leave both teams at a stand-still in fourth and sixth place, respectively. Taylor Turik and Andrew Marshall pikked up the pair of goals for YOLO. Fresh Air FC picked up a rare, but rather large, 7-1 win over Spartan Metal. A hat-trick from Arsalan Karimi led Fresh Air to the win with Michael

Guidi and Jaehyung Choi also chipping in. Kristian Sorensen got the lone consolation goal for Spartan Metal. In another lopsided win, Iris Optometry Wave FC moved within one point of fourth place FBFC with a 8-0 win over LCSC Athletics. Alex Chlum got his first career hat-trick, while Dustin Koepke, Uri Yarkoni, and Nic Race scored singles in the important win for the Wave.

STEVEN DALEY PEARCE It is with great sadness that the family of Steven Daley Pearce say their final earthly goodbye to a wonderful Son, Brother, Father, Husband & Step-Father. Steve fought a decades long battle with cancer, moving on to The Lord on Monday, August 13th 2012. At heart, Steve was a cowboy, from his early years on the family farm in Ontario. Horses were his first love until he found motorcycles. After getting his Motorcycle Mechanic’s license, Steve lived worked and raced as “The Wheely King.” Fate took a hand and sent him to Esso, where during a prestigious career as Lubrication Specialist & Chemist, Steve received accolades and awards for his innovation and inventions. Leaving Esso, but staying with his field of expertise, Steve partnered with Ross Gilley to form “Lakeland Oil” and enjoyed many happy successful years in the Okanagan before moving on. Steve was a key operative in U.S. Banks’ Petroleum Software Division “Advent” as their sole Canadian representative until the sale of the company. After a move to Vancouver Island, Steve’s life changed once more with a new marriage and a job with Enex fuels, where he made countless contacts and forged many firm friendships. Steve was a Champion Shotgun Shooter and an active member of the Single Action Shooting Society spending countless happy hours with Caribou Lefty, Sodbuster, Too Dusty, Too Slim, Too Thirsty and all the other Posse Too’s. He cherished his time with all. A great friend, a hard worker, a man of his word and a man of The Lord, Steve was the guy ready with a smile, a handshake, and a helping hand. Left to mourn the huge hole he leaves in their lives, are his Mother, Marlene Pearce, his siblings : Sandra Styrna, Sheila Rodger (Malcolm), Sharon Foofat (Jules),Stuart (Kathy) Pearce, and all his beloved nieces and nephews, every one his special favourite. Steve’s children (by wife Cathy Ryan) were his most treasured possession. Son Sean Pearce, wife Emily and only grandchild Liam, Son Ryan Pearce, Daughter Stephanie (“special baby girl”) and husband Jeff Gibson will live forever in his heavenly heart. Patricia (Pepper) Pearce, Stepdaughter Althea Rose, & Tucker the Schoodle are thankful for the 3 ½ all too short years we shared together in our little home by the beach. A funeral for Steven will be held at Parksville Fellowship Baptist Church, 550 Pym St. Parksville, B.C. on Friday August 24th at 2:00 pm. A light tea will follow at which time we invite and encourage any and every one to share memories. In lieu of flowers, please choose a 3rd world charity as was Steve’s wish to spread sunshine in dark corners.

** A very special thank you to our family Physician, Dr. Robert Macarri for his unfailing support and compassion during troubled times. We would also like to thank the many caring hands that treated Steve during his months at Vancouver General Hospital and in particular the wonderful team at 8th floor Step down unit .**

Valleyview Dignity Memorial For us, there is no higher honour than to be chosen to bring loved ones, friends and a lifetime of memories together in celebration of a special life.

10 MINUTES TO DISASTER LOU LOU If it’s hot, your pet may be in trouble! The temperature in a parked car, even in the shade with the windows partly open, can rapidly reach a level that will seriously harm or even kill your pet. On summer days the air and upholstery in your vehicle can heat up to high temperatures that make it impossible for pets to cool themselves. Your dog will be more comfortable if left at home. If you see a dog in a car on a hot day that you believe may be in trouble, call your local SPCA, animal shelter, or police immediately.

CUISINE from Jude’s kitchen corny salads I wait all year for the perfect flavours of fresh-from-the-field corn on the cob and tomatoes. They are two vegetables that taste nothing like the fresh version even days after they were picked, or if not picked at just the right stage in their maturity. Green tomatoes, once picked, will eventually turn red, but there’s no comparison in flavour to those vine-ripened ones. Corn can be kept for a few weeks under adequate refrigeration, but it’s like a different vegetable from that picked and then steamed within hours. The flavour can’t be compared to the stored version. Interestingly, there was a lot of corn used in different dishes offered up by our local chefs at the Feast of Fields this year, which was held at Claremont Ranch Organics in Lake Country. For instance, Chef Stuart Klassen of the Delta Grand topped his braised apple barbecued pork, using Kelowna’s Double Cross cider, with a corn salsa which matched those flavours very well. It was a great event with lots of tantalizing flavour combinations. And, it was often the simplest that tasted the best, like Waterfront Restaurant Chef Mark Filatow’s blue cheese-stuffed apricots with a ribbon of locallysmoked prosciutto wrapped around each. Yum. Both corn and tomatoes are now ripe and ready to eat in local fields and gardens, so make the most of the opportunity and add them to everything. I snacked on tiny patio tomatoes, plucked warm and sweet from the vine, before I even had breakfast this morning. Notice the variety of colours in both these salads, and visit the rainbow kitchen with your kids for ideas about involving your youngsters in cooking: http://www.todayiatearainbow.com/videos/in-the-rainbow-kitchen/ Kelowna’s Kia Robertson and her daughter created a series of kitchen videos involving adults and kids and you’re invited to do the same, with a chance to win big cash prizes in a province-wide contest put on by a group called Better Together, that believes strongly in the importance of families eating together. Entry deadline is Sept. 3, so you’d better get busy now on your cooking video to qualify. Go to: bettertogetherbc.ca/ You’ll find lots of kid-friendly recipes in my book, Jude’s Kitchen, published by the Okanagan Institute and distributed by Sandhill Book Marketing of Kelowna. It’s available at local bookstores and wine shops.

Corn & Peppers Salad It seems to me that vegetables that grow together and ripen around the same time just have to taste good together and that’s certainly the case with this refreshing, crunchy, sweet salad. It can have a bite to it if you add some spicy peppers in addition to the sweet ones, but follow your own instincts there. 2 cobs cooked corn 1 red pepper 1 green pepper 2 large green onions 1 tomato 1 tbsp. (15 ml) fresh basil

DRESSING: 2 tbsp. (30 ml) olive oil 1 tbsp. (15 ml) white wine vinegar

1/2 tsp. (2 ml) cumin 1/2 tsp. (2 ml) honey 1/4 tsp. (1 ml) fresh-ground black pepper 1/4 tsp. (1 ml) coarsely ground sea salt Lightly cook the corn and use a knife to shave the kernels off the cobs into a salad serving bowl. Chop the sweet peppers and green onions into similar-sized dice and chop up the tomato. A paste tomato such as a Roma is better, because it’s meatier. Add the vegetables to the corn and mix well. Mince the fresh basil and set aside. Whisk together the dressing ingredients and pour over the salad. Scatter minced basil on top just before serving. Serves 6.

JUDIE STEEVES / CAPITAL NEWS

Donna's Corn & Avocado Salad or Salsa This is a terrific side dish to serve with a spicy barbecued meat and is a refreshing salad or salsa for a hot day. Use more hot peppers if you prefer more heat. The sweet crunch of the corn is just a wonderful contrast to the creamy avocado. Donna sometimes makes this with half the corn and avocados, but she serves it with fresh shrimp or prawns as an appetizer. 2 cobs young corn 1 jalapeno pepper 6 grape or patio tomatoes 2 green onions 2 avocadoes 2 tbsp. (30 ml) fresh lime juice coarsely-ground sea salt freshly-ground black pepper 1/4 c. (60 ml) fresh cilantro

Steam the corn until just barely cooked, cool and remove the kernels from the cob with a sharp knife into a salad serving bowl. Mince the jalapeno pepper after removing the seeds and add to the corn. Cut the tiny tomatoes in half or quarters and add to the corn, along with chopped green onions. Peel the avocado, remove the pit and cut into very small dice, adding to the salad and drizzling with the lime juice. Sprinkle it all with coarse sea salt and black pepper and gently combine everything. Taste and add more juice or seasoning if needed. Just before serving, mince the cilantro and garnish the top of the salad with it. Serves 4 to 6.

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

*organic products are my first choice *wherever possible, I use whole grains, not processed *include a variety of them, when possible *wherever possible, I use fresh herbs *fewer quantities of dried herbs are needed than fresh *I use extra virgin olive oil *I use grapeseed or olive oil to cook with

*I don’t deep fry *feel free to substitute. I do *have fun in the kitchen *encourage others to as well
