UBCO thinks inside the (bike) box Wade Paterson STAFF REPORTER

UBC Okanagan is combining its security technology with a Saskatchewan inventor’s bike locker to create safe, secure and keyless parking spots for staff members’ bicycles. For four years UBCO has used the SALTO security system on its campus. SALTO Systems utilize keyless locks, which can be opened by an electronic card. According to Tina Dolan, UBCO’s administrator of SALTO Systems, the Okanagan university is SALTO’s biggest user site in Canada.

“We’re trying to become a keyless campus,” said Dolan. So it was only natural the university would try to adapt that technology to work with their newest set of bicycle lockers. “The manufacturer worked with our locksmith and has adapted some of the mechanics of the locker to be modified to accept our keyless entry,” Dolan said. Bikebox Canada utilizes post consumer materials to create triangular sets of five lockers, which can fit easily into corners. Its creator, Dean Gibson, said he invented the product because he was tired of his bicycles being vandalized or stolen.

According to him, so far Bikebox lockers have kept many bikes safe and “prevented over 20,000 pounds of plastic from entering the landfill.” The product’s environmentally-friendly nature is one of the reasons UBCO has purchased 10 Bikeboxes to date—with plans to buy more as demand increases. The five Bikeboxes currently on campus are located at the northeast corner of the Administration building. The other five will be placed outside the Health Sciences Centre once they are shipped to the university. “We’re trying to locate them strategically—near a building,

preferably under cover,” said Dolan. Dolan noted the lockers are temporarily for staff use only. “In the University Centre, students have the ability to arrange to have their bike locked up in a secure area within the building— they’ve already had that option for a couple of years. “And in our new Engineering Management building, in one of the foyers in the back of the building, they set up an (enclosed) bike rack…so students have a few good options already.”

Two separate attacks by pit bulls on four-year-old children in B.C. in the last week—including one in Kelowna last weekend—have prompted another call for a ban on the breed. Hayden Bush was camping with his family Saturday night when the pit bull he was looking at, a dog that belonged to a family friend, lunged at him, biting his face in two places. After being rushed to hospital, doctors had to use 32 stitches to close the wounds to the little boy’s face. Hayden’s mother Jayme Bush said Wednesday her son was traumatized by the attack but she does not want it to ruin his love of animals. But she, along with the mother of a four-year-old White Rock girl who was attacked last week by a pit bull and also required stitches to repair wounds to her face, said it’s time vicious breeds like put bulls are banned in B.C. Currently, there is a ban on the breed in Ontario and while people who already had a pit bull when the ban came into effect are allowed to keep their animals, they must be muzzled when out in public. Emma-Leigh Cranford was attacked by a pit bull belonging to her uncle’s girlfriend at a family backyard barbecue Aug. 23 in White Rock. Her mother, Elizabeth Cranford, said her daughter, who had been playing with the dog just a few days earlier, walked past the dog at the barbecue when it pinned her between a bench and a fence as it bit her on the lower part of her face. The White Rock mom called in to a Kelowna radio show Wednesday morning to echo Jayme Bush’s call for a ban on pit bulls. Cranford said she used to feel it was the fault of the owner when she heard about pit bull attacks, but she does not feel that way in light of the attack on her daughter. Cranford said she knows the owner of the dog that bit her daughter is a good, caring and vigilant owner who looks after her dog and treats it very well. Cranford

Revitalization project to start impacting Bernard Ave. traffic Starting Tuesday, Sept. 4, Bernard Avenue from Ellis to Richter Streets will be closed to motorists as the massive rehabilitation project for Kelowna’s main downtown street gets underway. As of 6 a.m., the section of Bernard will be closed to accommodate the utility replacement and streetscaping as part of the revitalization of Ber-

nard Avenue. The Ellis Street intersection will be closed to motorists and the truck route will be rerouted temporarily to Gordon Drive until mid-October. Detour routes will be clearly marked and traffic safety personnel will be on site directing traffic. All transit routes into and out of the Queensway transit station will

continue as usual, with minor downtown routing adjustments. Visit bctransit.com/regions/kel to check transit adjustments. Access to businesses and pedestrian walkways will be a priority and maintained whenever possible, according to the city. Pedestrian crossings located at St. Paul and Bertram Streets will be permitted when safe.

Construction hours during this first phase of the work will be Monday to Saturday, 6 a.m. to midnight. Work may occur outside of regular construction hours to minimize impacts on businesses and to limit the time of active construction in the area, said city hall. The $11-million project was contracted to Vernon’s CGL Contracting,

with Focus Corporation acting as contract administrator. Completion of the first phase of construction is anticipated in November. Work will then shut down until next spring when the lower part of Bernard Avenue will be done. A third phase, slated for the fall of 2013 will be undertaken then.

Time to move on from performing arts society ‘labour of love’ Kevin Parnell STAFF REPORTER

After five years in operation, the Lake Country Performing Arts Society has decided to call it quits. Citing dwindling crowds and a lack of fresh voices, the LCPAS has voted to disband its society, which had hosted two variety shows a year since forming in April 2007. “It’s been quite successful and it’s been great,” said founding society member Nina Ma-

cInnes. “But I think the time is right. We’ve all enjoyed this labour of love since 2007 and now it’s time to move on.” After turning a profit on most of its shows, the past couple variety programs have lost money, according to MacInnes. At the same time the society numbers have fallen from 10 members to just four. And crowds at the Creekside Theatre have been too small to cover

the cost of performers. At their last meeting on Aug. 14, no new members were present and the society voted to disband. The last two shows drew less than 100 people to the Creekside Theatre, said MacInnes, who pointed to the economy as one reason why fewer people were taking in the shows. “It is a shame that audience numbers throughout the entertainment business have been much smaller in the last couple

of years due to the recession,” she said. “The cost of putting on a variety show is getting higher and there is also a growing number of smaller venues for concerts.” MacInnes, whose father Frank Hall was on the committee that originally built the Creekside Theatre in Lake Country, says she started the LCPAS after she retired as a longtime municipal worker. “When I was thinking of retiring I thought I would really like to be in-

volved with the theatre,” she said. “It’s surprising how many talented people we have in the community. It’s been very interesting getting to know people and seeing them perform.” During the last few years, the LCPAS brought in Celtic performances for one of its two annual shows. Most of the other programs would have as many a six different acts over a two hour plus show, a heavy workload for the

small society. As far as highlights, MacInnes says it was always fulfilling to see the audience enjoy the programs. “I don’t think there is any one real highlight,” she said. “I think it was just so gratifying to have a good audience that appreciated all the music. The last Celtic performance we put on, the people were so enthusiastic. But it’s a shame that there just wasn’t enough of them to pay for the performer.”

The LCPAS still has some money left in its bank account and has decided that it will hand it out to community groups that focus on the performing arts, such as school band programs. “We’re looking at giving a gift to these groups,” said MacInnes. “We need to talk to them and see exactly where we would like it spent.” The LCPAS will meet Sept. 17 to disburse funds and to formally disband. kparnell@kelownacapnews.com

NEWS ▼ SCHOOL ZONES

▼ DRUG BUST

Motorists reminded to be on high alert Missing Hells Summer draws to a close and schools in the Central Okanagan District 23 are ready for the return of some 21,000 students, who will be arriving in many different ways. As summer winds down and the school year begins anew, children will be travelling to and from their local schools by public or private transportation as well as on bikes, roller blades, skateboards and foot. As a motorist, what does that mean for you? It’s simple: When you’re driving, slow down and watch for children. It doesn’t matter whether or not you’re in a school zone as kids have to walk from their neighbourhood to get to school so there are going to be children everywhere, even if a school isn’t nearby. School zones are good reminders to slow down but there will still be children running around, darting in and out of traffic outside of school zones. Slowing down doesn’t just apply to 8:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Children who

live near school might go home for lunch. Or, children might be late getting to school or going home early. Don’t forget, it’s not just children you have to watch out for, as school buses are back in service. A school bus displaying its stop sign and flashing red lights means you must stop until the lights and signs are deactivated, regardless of which direction you are headed. School buses also tend to be an obvious indicator that children will be nearby. It’s crucial that drivers slow down in school zones, watch for crosswalks, and be mindful of school traffic safety patrollers. “Be alert and watch for kids riding to school on their bikes,” said regional traffic safety officer Dave Gibson. “We all want our children to arrive at school and home safely.” Central Okanagan RCMP Traffic Services and speed watch volunteers will be stepping up their presence, mak-

ing school zones a priority. School zone speed limits are 30 km/h between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. starting on Tuesday, Sept. 4. “We strongly encourage students and their parents to consider walking or cycling to school to reduce traffic congestion around the schools and increase student safety,” said Gibson.

PEDESTRIANS TIPS 1. Remove your headphones; put away your phone, MP3 player or other gadgets when crossing a street. Focus your full attention on the road so you can see, hear and respond safely. 2. Use designated crossing points and follow pedestrian traffic signs and signals. Make eye contact with drivers, so you both know you see each other. The most common road safety error made by kids is not finding a safe place to cross. Teach your child to cross at intersections that have a pedestrian crossing light or a marked crosswalk whenever possible.

3. Dress to be seen. Wear bright or light coloured clothing. In dark or bad weather, wear reflective material on clothes or accessories. 4. Always walk on the inside edge of the sidewalk—away from the road. This way, you’re further away from the traffic. If there is no sidewalk, always walk facing traffic so you can see oncoming vehicles and drivers can see you. 5. Be aware of parked vehicles in parking lots and on the road. Drivers may not see you between parked vehicles and you may not see them moving. Before crossing or walking through a parking lot, stop and look left-rightleft around the parked vehicle and avoid taking unnecessary shortcuts through parking lots.

TIPS FOR DRIVERS When school is in session, a 30-km/h school zone speed limit is in effect from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. every school day, unless otherwise posted. 1. Plan ahead and be alert. Driving routes with less traffic in the summer may now face congestion, so give yourself extra time to get to your destination. Take your time and don’t

rush, especially through intersections. Look for children especially near or around crosswalks and intersections close to schools. 2. When dropping off children in a school zone stop and allow them to exit onto the sidewalk side of the car. Never allow a child to cross mid-block. 3. If a vehicle is stopped in front of you or in the lane next to you, they may be yielding for a pedestrian, so be prepared to stop. 4. Always watch for pedestrians when you’re backing up. Before you get into your vehicle, make it a habit to walk around your vehicle to ensure no small kids are behind it. And remember, children will notice your driving behaviour as well as your pedestrian behaviour, so please set a good example for them.

SCHOOL ZONE FINES Speed in school/playground zone—$196 to $253 Fail to stop for school bus—$167 Fail to yield to pedestrian—$167 Pass vehicle yielding to pedestrian—$167 Disobey school guard/ patrol—$167.

Angel fugitive turns himself in A man police describe as the sergeant-at-arms of the Kelowna Hells Angels chapter and the subject of a Canada-wide arrest warrant following a weekend raid on the gang’s Kelowna clubhouse, has turned himself in to police. Brian Oldham, accompanied by his lawyer, walked into an RCMP detachment in Burnaby on Tuesday afternoon to turn himself in. Police indicated Oldham realized there was nowhere to hide after his photograph was made public at a press conference the RCMP held on Monday in Vancouver to discuss the weekend raids of several Hells Angels clubhouses in Kelowna, Osoyoos and Coquitlam. Oldham was one of several men who have now been charged as a result of the raid. The raids resulted in the seizure of $4 million in alleged drug money, as well as several handguns and assault weapons. Seven men were arrested in connection with

Brian Oldham

the police action. One of them, David Giles, the vice-president of the Kelowna Hells Angels chapter, was arrested at a Burnaby casino on the weekend. Giles, who was acquitted of drug charges in 2008, was charged Monday, along with three other men—Kevin Van Kalkeran, Michael Redd and James Howard—with conspiracy to import a controlled substance and conspiracy to traffic a controlled substance. Three other men— Organ Saydam, Murray Trekofski, Shawn Womacks—were charged with possession for the purpose of trafficking a controlled substance. Crown counsel wants to use a direct indictment for all seven, which would allow them to go directly to trial in B.C. Supreme Court. At Monday’s press conference, RCMP Supt. Brian Cantera said the weekend clubhouse raids resulted from an investigation dubbed E-Predicate that exposed what police say was an international plot to import 500 kilograms of cocaine into Canada using money from the production and sale of marijuana produced in the area covered by the southeast division of the RCMP in B.C. That area includes the Central Okanagan. The investigation took 21 months and involved several international agencies from as far away as the U.S., Mexico and Panama. Olham was held in police custody Tuesday and was scheduled to appear in court in Vancouver Wednesday.

NEWS ▼ VOLUNTEERING

Young KGH volunteer drawn to medicine When 18-year-old Amanda Ames is volunteering in the General’s Snackery at Kelowna General Hospital, you immediately see that she loves working with people. Her smile is contagious, each customer walks away looking happier than when they walked in. Four years ago, Amanda thought volun-

teering would be a good way to get some early work experience. Perhaps inspired by her parents—Lori Pederson, a pharmacist and Bob Ames a biomedical technologist—Amanda started volunteering with the Kelowna Hospital Auxiliary. “I started off wanting work experience, but I came to see volunteering as so much more than

a job, it’s an opportunity,” she said. Amanda recently won a bursary from the Kelowna Hospital Auxiliary and a full entrance scholarship from UBC Okanagan. “It’s been wonderful watching Amanda grow up volunteering at Kelowna General Hospital.,” Nancy Wells, business enterprises manager for the auxiliary said. “There’s so much value to young people volunteering with the auxiliary. We are helping to build our future doctors, nurses, lawyers, entrepreneurs and more, but most importantly we are

helping to build good citizens.” Amanda is looking forward to completing a bachelor of science degree, following which her goal is to enter the Southern medical program at UBCO. She hopes to become a family physician or internal medicine specialist. The Sprogram is a great option for Amanda because it will allow her to complete her education and training in the Southern Interior, close to her family and friends. “I think the consistency of home will help me do well in my studies,”

she said. When she’s not working at the Snackery, Amanda is at her paying job at a local restaurant. While the plan is to continue volunteering as long as it works with her studies, she’s already successfully recruited her replacement, her younger sister Melissa. The two are often seen volunteering side-by-side at KGH. Amanda wants other young people to considering volunteering to follow through with it because, she says, “volunteering really helps you grow as a person.”

RCMP liaison officer gears up for new school year Wade Paterson STAFF REPORTER

You don’t need pesticides to grow a healthy lawn.

For the first time in the District of West Kelowna’s history, an RCMP school liaison officer will walk the halls of Westside schools throughout the entire academic year. That officer is Const. Sherri Lund and she’s looking forward to the task.

Lund got her feet wet during the last two months of the school year this past spring. She met administrators and students and began to form a relationship, which she hopes to build on this year. “It was a little bit of a learning curve for (the schools) as well as me, being new to this position,” said Lund.

high schools and middle schools in the area; however, she said she also wants to visit the elementary schools to show students Mounties are approachable. The new school liaison officer admitted the first few months of the upcoming school year will be spent working out all of the kinks and getting used to what works and what doesn’t. But Lund has already began brainstorming additional ways to help West Kelowna’s young people make wise decisions. She hopes to eventually bring a program called PARTY (Preventable Alcohol and Risk-Related Trauma in Youth) to the Westside. The program, which originated in Eastern Canada, takes Grade 10 and 11 students through a shockvalue experience of visiting an emergency room or morgue to witness what can happen when bad decisions are made. She also hopes to re-

vitalize West Kelowna’s Respect program, which rewards youth doing positive work in the community by providing them with gift certificates donated by local businesses. “Rather than ticketing for offences, we’re rewarding for good behaviour; it helps build a positive relationship with the police and the youth.” According to West Kelowna RCMP Staff Sgt. Duncan Dixon, council’s decision to hire a school liaison officer is a “fantastic improvement.” “She’s got a very strong background, a big heart and (has) a real interest in the youth of our community.” Mayor Doug Findlater said Lund’s job exists because of complaints brought forward to council from students of Mount Boucherie Secondary School last year. “When the young people articulated a need so strongly, we bought into it,” said Findlater. wpaterson@kelownacapnews.com

UBCO campus ready to Local motorcyclist killed welcome new students

As the academic year gets underway, students new to UBCO can choose from dozens of informative, entertaining and fun activities designed to introduce them to the campus community. Learning about those options will be the focus of an event on campus next Tuesday, Sept. 4, called Create—an annual student orientation program that offers a variety of events for all new students. Featuring food, campus tours, games, prizes, entertainment and dozens of information booths, the event helps students learn about the people, places, activities, and resources available to them on campus. “The atmosphere during Create is electric. There is so much activity and energy. It really helps to set the stage for the year,� said Adam Goodwin, student event coordinator with student development and advising. “The University Centre’s commons area is where most of the Create activities can be enjoyed, although there are a number of events taking place throughout campus.� In addition to Create, undergraduate international students also have had the opportunity to take part in Jumpstart this week. Jumpstart is an orientation program that highlights academic, cultural, recreational and social activities on and off campus that are available to international students.

The B.C. Coroners Service has confirmed the identity of a motorcyclist who died Aug. 27 from a motor vehicle incident in West Kelowna. The deceased is David Allan Thomas Hall, aged 30, of West Kelowna. Initial reports from the RCMP immediately following the crash incorrectly indicated the dead man was from Surrey. According to the coroner, Hall was riding his motorcycle southbound on Westside Road, a nar-

THE UBC OKANAGAN campus was a whirlwind of people and activity during student orientation events last year. “We have 124 international students from approximately 36 countries attending Jumpstart—the most ever,� said Leah Sanford, manager of international programs and services. “The purpose is to provide our first-year international students the opportunity to have a head start in their transition to a new country, city, and culture.� This year, Jumpstart has combined many of its social activities with the campus Kickstart program, designed for out-ofregion and out-of-province incoming first-year students. “The goal is to foster meaningful friendships among new students, encourage students to experience the Okanagan, settle into campus, meet faculty, and gain valuable tips for academic success,� says Chelsea Butchart, commuter services coordinator with student development and advising.

“Students will have the opportunity to go kayaking, hike Knox Mountain, go on a houseboat cruise on Okanagan Lake, and take a day trip to Penticton for mini-golf and float the channel.� On Monday, Sept. 3, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., the Aboriginal Student Orientation will be held. The day includes a holistic overview of the programs and supports offered by aboriginal programs and services, which encompass a balance of academic, spiritual, emotional, and physical components to foster and promote student achievement and overall well-being.

Police have seized more than 650 marijuana plants found at a West Kelowna house in the 3500block of Ashley Court. Acting on a hydro theft tip, police raided the house earlier this week and uncovered a sophisticated marijuana growing operation. A 49-year-old West Kelowna man was arrested at the scene. The man, whose identity was not released, faces potential charges of theft of electricity and a number of drug possession related charges.

The price we pay for bargains

I

n increasing numbers, Canadian consumers are heading south to take advantage of new cross-border allowances for shopping and the high dollar. Cross-border trips in June, the first month the higher exemptions took effect, were up to levels not seen since 1972. Back then, the dollar was also above par, and gas prices were low. It seems many are willing to spend the time in border line-ups and pay for the extra gas to save

on a variety of items. The downside is that local retailers take a hit, and when they do, they cut back on costs —such as new hires. And those much-hated taxes (which pay for health, education and other important programs) take a hit, as well. Also, local business owners play major roles in sponsoring myriad local activities and initiatives, such as youth sports teams and charitable causes.

As revenues decline, so does the ability of businesses to give back to the community. Retailers in border communities like Abbotsford are particularly impacted. Canadians are understandably looking for bargains. But there is a point when the lure of cheaper U.S. products comes back to haunt them. A long-term decline in retail jobs and declining tax revenue can do major damage to the B.C.

economy. Tax shortfalls must be made up somewhere, so that means everyone (including cross-border shoppers) will pay more. The federal government encouraged this flow of dollars to the south, with the cross-border allowance changes. Now it’s incumbent upon the same government to address factors such as high import tariffs that impede the competitiveness of many Canadian businesses.

Education aimed where jobs growth in B.C. is expected T

he British Columbia government occasionally finds funding to put toward targeted areas of skills development. That occurred this year, and Okanagan College received approximately $550,000. The funds are intended to create additional capacity and new opportunities for people to gain skills and knowledge that will help them find, bolster or change careers. Although some money went into new intakes for some of our existing programs (electrician program in Revelstoke) other money went into some new certificates offered by our Continuing Studies department.

One program which was new to Kelowna and was offered over the summer in partnership with Capilano University, was an Animation Fundamentals certificate. This program provides students with an introduction into the field of animation. It’s one of those programs which I would call a sampler. Students took courses in drawing, animation design, animation principles and timing, and also digital animation where most of the industry is today.

It allows someone interested in the animation field an opportunity to see if this is really what they want to do before they invest in a much longer, more Jane expensive program. Animators tend to Muskens find employment in the movie and television industry, or working for advertising agencies, web design firms, and video game companies. Another new program in the works, courtesy of the additional funding, is a certificate in Safety and Supervision in Oil and Gas. A stel-

lar safety record is important to many companies trying to attract workers into the oil and gas field. To meet the needs of these companies the college hopes to launch this program soon. I suspect it will be of interest to the many locals who live in the valley but work out-of-province or up north, or those looking to find a job in this high growth area. Mining in the last 10 years has become a major industry in Canada. Today there are well over 800 mining operations in Canada which employ more than 363,000 Canadians. Mining is expected to have high growth rates at the same time Canada faces skilled labour shortages. This is at a

time when it is difficult to get Canadians interested in working in the mining industry. Most people remember mining accidents—which doesn’t bode well for this industry—yet the safety standards in Canadian mines are the best in the world. On top of all that, not all mining work means you’re actually in the mine. With the use of technology such as robotics, computers and state-of-the-art equipment, a miner can be at a desk above ground while operating equipment hundreds of meters below.

ICBC a cash cow for government To the editor: I couldn’t agree more with your editorial in the Aug. 28 Capital News (ICBC Bungled by the Liberals). It mirrors my emails to (NDP leader) Adrian Dix, (B.C. Premier) Christy Clark, (B.C. Finance Minister) Kevin Falcon and our three local MLAs (Steve Thomson, Norm Letnick and Ben Stewart). The only answer I received was from a clerk in the Ministry of Finance which didn’t ad-

dress my questions. My emails included reference to the $750 million that was transferred to General Revenue over a three year period. They claim the money is surplus from “optional insurance” premiums. Why not use it to cover “basic” insurance premium shortfalls? Don’t increase our premiums by 11 per cent. If I have a surplus in my food budget I would use it to cover a deficit in

my utilities, home repair, etc. budget—not give it away! The Manitoba equivalent to ICBC apparently has it written in their mandate to return surplus funds to the policy holders. My premiums are approximately 50 per cent of what ICBC charges for the same “optional” coverage. I have 45 years (driving) experience and ICBC’s maximum discount. My broker indicat-

ed ICBC’s next move was to look at penalizing those of us who obtain “optional coverage” from other providers. Most people don’t realize you can get free, no-obligation quotes from any of them. Both the Liberals and NDP use ICBC and Lotto BC (the latter originally set up where surplus funds were to go for hospitals and health in general) as cash cows. To get their funds elsewhere like increasing sales tax or in-

sisting on user-pay would certainly not get them any political points. It’s much easier to rely on the hidden taxes and hope people don’t notice. My biggest concern is that both parties preach “open government” yet neither will admit the indirect taxation or offer viable alternatives. The funding has to come from somewhere. Just be open about it. S. Braybrook, Kelowna

Bureaucrats don’t have skills to run a business To the editor: I read with great interest your editorial in the Aug. 28 edition of Capital News: ICBC Bungled by the Liberals. It outlined the scandals involving pay of top bureaucrats assigned to running this monolithic monopoly. Having recently moved here from Alberta, where vehicle insurance is run by the private sector

thereby affording the consumer a choice of companies, I was astounded at the rates for registering a motor vehicle in BC. For example: A 2005 Honda Goldwing in Alberta is $450 a year. For the same coverage in Kelowna, I was quoted nearly $1,600 a year. I have two other vehicles which, in B.C., will cost more than $500 more per vehicle per

year for the same coverage. When I went to register my vehicles, I presented to the agent my claims history, which is no claims, from my Alberta company. In the letter my Alberta company went back to 2006 for my claims history. However, they made a typo and instead of 2006 they inserted 1006. I noticed this

upon receipt of the letter but thought nothing of it, thinking that it would be acknowledged by ICBC as an error and corrected. The ICBC agent told me that it could not be accepted as is due to the typo. Not believing the agent, I contacted ICBC by phone and they confirmed that they would not accept it, saying that they

cannot assume anything. You can’t teach common sense and you can’t fix stupid. Privatize motor vehicle insurance for the good of all B.C. residents. Governments should govern, not be in business which could be best handled by the private sector. Gordon Ricketts, Kelowna

Open letter to Kelowna radio stations: I find the Central Okanagan radio landscape to be a serious disappointment. The number of radio stations is not the problem—the dial seems well populated. The actual lack of variety is the problem. For some reason, a significant percentage of young adults are not at all serviced by any station that can even remotely be picked up.

There are tons of people out there who want to listen to current modern rock that isn’t pop fluff. Some great examples of stations like this are Toronto’s 102.1 The Edge (www.edge.ca), and Vancouver’s 99.3 The Fox (www.cfox.com). Kelowna is a big enough market to support great stations like these. Here is my assessment of Kelowna Radio geared to young adults: On the rock and roll side of things

we have three stations. Power 104 is advertised as “Kelowna’s Best Rock.” This station offers the closest glimpse of modernity. For example: They will play the absolutely most popular new songs once in a blue moon, like something from the Black Keys, but it is just as often followed by a song like Rock and Roll Hoochie Coo or some other tired ’70s tune. I lose patience before another modern tune is played, and even

skilled workers in this industry, there are also hundreds of jobs related to mining; everything from working in the field of exploration to a desk job. In response to industry growth the college is developing and planning to offer a certificate in mining basic safety to help

participants better understand what working in a mine really entails and what safety measures are in place. It will hopefully make participants realize that working in the mining industry isn’t like the coals mines of Cape Breton Island two centuries ago. All of these new programs will be offered

Sun and Q103 might as well be clones of pop. Why do we need two? Not my style at all. In short, what Central Okanagan radio needs is a bold station owner to recognize the gaping hole in musical style on the air. Fill this gap, and a great many of us would tune in, and give credence to your advertising revenue bottom line. How can we make this happen? Adam Tizel, Kelowna

Slight rise seen in local living wage As most Central Okanagan families can attest, it costs more to make ends meet than it did a year ago. As might be expected,

that’s also the case for the second annual calculation of the Central Okanagan Living Wage. The latest data compiled and calculated for

the 2012 living wage shows that in order to meet the most basic of family needs to keep them out of extreme poverty each adult in a two parent,

two child household, must be employed full-time and earn at least $17.17 per hour. That’s a slight increase over the inaugural Central

Okanagan Living Wage calculation in 2011 of $16.98 per hour. Christene Walsh, the regional district social development coordinator, said, “Hopefully, this calculation will help generate needed dialogue and action around creative ways to help families meet outstanding needs, especially since B.C. has for the eighth straight year recorded the highest child poverty rate in the country.” She said the living wage” reflects the actual costs of living in a community and shouldn’t be confused with the minimum wage, which is a minimum rate of pay legislated by the provincial government. “Our living wage calculation includes expenses such as food, rent, transportation, child care and education expenses, all considered the basic needs of any family. “Government taxes, credits, deductions and subsidies are also included in the calculations. However, other real life costs such as debt repayment, entertainment (cable, Internet), special care of a relative, cigarette smoking and saving for or acquiring home ownership are not part of the living wage calculation.” Robert Fine, the Central Okanagan economic development director, said the living wage calculation gives employers some insight to the economic realities of the costs to live in the Central Okanagan. “Many Central Okanagan employers are creatively embracing this kind of investment in their workers which pays dividends by reducing turnover and training costs and building employee loyalty, dedication and improved customer service,” Fine said. Walsh added that last year’s living wage calculation prompted timely discussion and “we anticipate there will be more awareness-building in light of this year’s figure.” “Considering the median annual family income in 2009 was $67,070 and according to the living wage, families need to earn at least $62,500 to attain basic necessities, it’s important all of our Central Okanagan communities explore additional ideas that not only help families survive, but offers opportunity to get ahead beyond the focus on an hourly rate of pay,” Walsh said.

Bikebox lockers eyed for UBCO campus

Falcon’s had enough Tom Fletcher

Box from A1

CONTRIBUTOR

If demand for Bikebox lockers increases, units could be potentially set up for student use in the future, said Dolan. The cost for staff members to utilize the Bikebox lockers is $60 per year or $5 per month; the five units on campus are currently rented out. Gibson said he’s happy to see his creation being integrated with the SALTO System. “This is a win-win situation all around, not only for our environment but for those cyclists that are apprehensive about leaving their bicycle unattended anywhere,” said Gibson. He noted UBCO is the first customer to automate the Bikebox units. wpaterson@kelownacapnews.com

NEWS

Premier Christy Clark is planning a pre-election cabinet shuffle as early as next week to replace Surrey-Cloverdale MLA Kevin Falcon and other ministers who are likely to leave. Falcon announced Wednesday he has stepped down as finance minister and won’t run in the 2013 election, because his wife is expecting a second

child, at around the same time as the next B.C. budget is due. “Putting aside the timing associated with the newest addition to our family in February, I genuinely believe the premier requires a finance minister who will prepare a budget and make taxation and spending measures that he or she will be prepared to defend in the upcoming election campaign.” Clark appointed Attorney General Shirley Bond

as acting finance minister, but said it is a short-term arrangement and a new cabinet lineup will be announced “in the coming days” to prepare for the May 2013 election. The second-place finisher in the 2011 B.C. Liberal Party leadership race, Falcon was appointed finance minister and deputy premier by Clark. He has since overseen the unpopular delayed windup of the harmonized sales tax.

said she is concerned about the breed itself. Jayme Bush, who was a guest on the radio show, said it’s important that people are aware of the dangers that some dog breeds pose and to remember that children should never be left alone with a dog. She added it’s not just pit bulls that pose a threat as there are other vicious breeds to be aware of as well. Despite the attack, Bush said it is important to her that her son not live in fear of dogs so she is seeking counselling for him. But, she added it has been a problem trying to find a councillor to work with her son. awaters@kelownacapnews.com

BCGEU plans to step up job action with one-day strike ASSISTANT EDITOR

Kelowna will not be exempt from a planned one-day, B.C.-wide strike by unionized B.C. government workers next week. The strike, by 27,000 members of the B.C. Government and Service Employees’ Union, the Professional Employees Association and the Canadian Office and Professional Employees Union,

is scheduled for Wednesday, Sept. 5. Government offices and services, such as liquor stores, courts, corrections services, social workers, child protection offices and ICBC offices in 153 communities across B.C. will be affected. In total, 1,785 work sites, will be hit but the unions say essential services will be maintained to protect the health and

safety of British Columbians. The strike is the latest move in the BCGEU’s bid for a new contract from the provincial government. The union has been without a contract since March 31. “We are looking for a fair and reasonable agreement, but the government is not listening, said BCGEU president Darryl Walker. “We have no choice

but to send a clear message on Sept. 5. There can be no more falling behind for all government workers. We’ve not taken the decision to strike lightly.” Walker said since 2010, his members have suffered what he called a “real” wage cut of five per cent. The government’s last offer—now withdrawn—included a proposed wage hike of 3.5 per cent over two years. But that offer was rejected

by the union, which said it would not keep up with inflation. Earlier this month, Kelowna was one of four centres in B.C. hit by a revolving set of one-day strikes at government offices. Thirty workers at the provincial ministries of labour, agriculture, health and environment, housed in an office building on Powick Road, took part in the job action.

On the same day, another 150 workers at ministry of forests, lands and natural resource operations and transportation and infrastructure offices in Surrey, Campbell River and 100 Mile House walked off the job for the day. It was the fourth oneday strike affecting B.C. government officers across the province in the union’s push for a new contract.

Wednesday’s planned province-wide strike is described as the latest in the series of one-day strikes. The BCGEU represents 25,000 direct government workers. The PEA represents more than 1,200 licensed professionals employed directly in B.C.’s public service. COPE 378 represents about 4,600 workers at the Insurance Corporation of BC, a Crown corporation.

Despite the attack, Bush said it is important to her that her son not live in fear of dogs so she is seeking counselling for him. But, she added it has been a problem trying to find a councillor to work with her son. awaters@kelownacapnews.com

BCGEU plans to step up job action with one-day strike ASSISTANT EDITOR

Kelowna will not be exempt from a planned one-day, B.C.-wide strike by unionized B.C. government workers next week. The strike, by 27,000 members of the B.C. Government and Service Employees’ Union, the Professional Employees Association and the Canadian Office and Professional Employees Union,

is scheduled for Wednesday, Sept. 5. Government offices and services, such as liquor stores, courts, corrections services, social workers, child protection offices and ICBC offices in 153 communities across B.C. will be affected. In total, 1,785 work sites, will be hit but the unions say essential services will be maintained to protect the health and

safety of British Columbians. The strike is the latest move in the BCGEU’s bid for a new contract from the provincial government. The union has been without a contract since March 31. “We are looking for a fair and reasonable agreement, but the government is not listening, said BCGEU president Darryl Walker. “We have no choice

but to send a clear message on Sept. 5. There can be no more falling behind for all government workers. We’ve not taken the decision to strike lightly.” Walker said since 2010, his members have suffered what he called a “real” wage cut of five per cent. The government’s last offer—now withdrawn—included a proposed wage hike of 3.5 per cent over two years. But that offer was rejected

by the union, which said it would not keep up with inflation. Earlier this month, Kelowna was one of four centres in B.C. hit by a revolving set of one-day strikes at government offices. Thirty workers at the provincial ministries of labour, agriculture, health and environment, housed in an office building on Powick Road, took part in the job action.

On the same day, another 150 workers at ministry of forests, lands and natural resource operations and transportation and infrastructure offices in Surrey, Campbell River and 100 Mile House walked off the job for the day. It was the fourth oneday strike affecting B.C. government officers across the province in the union’s push for a new contract.

Wednesday’s planned province-wide strike is described as the latest in the series of one-day strikes. The BCGEU represents 25,000 direct government workers. The PEA represents more than 1,200 licensed professionals employed directly in B.C.’s public service. COPE 378 represents about 4,600 workers at the Insurance Corporation of BC, a Crown corporation.

BUSINESS Be proactive to prevent conflict from escalating

W

hen we find ourselves seriously at odds with someone, a familiar reaction is to blame the other person for it. They did this, or they didn’t do that or they won’t listen—responses like this are natural and common. Unfortunately, blaming doesn’t resolve conflict. However, taking responsibility does. No matter if the person you are dealing is clearly aggressive or rude, or is unwilling to talk calmly about an issue, there are always at least two sides to that dynamic. What I mean by that last statement is that if we find ourselves involved in a conflict or serious misunderstanding, we are influencing it one way or another. It doesn’t really matter what or who caused the conflict; what matters is how it’s handled once it’s out in the open. In my professional (and personal) experience, most people are extremely uncomfortable with conflict, have no idea how to handle it well, and often prefer to avoid dealing with it at all. While I can appreciate why conflict is awkward for most people, I also know that avoiding it does not make it go away. There are healthier ways to handle it. The ideal approach is to be proactive and prevent early tensions from escalating. That requires self awareness and a willingness to talk about the issue/ concern with the other party when it first arises. You will likely feel the initial signs of interpersonal tension physically somewhere in your body (wherever you typically carry stress). If you really pay attention to those signals when they first appear, you have a better chance of identifying exactly what transpired to cause them. At this point you can step back and reflect. Was it something someone said, how they said it, what they didn’t say or something more subtle like negative body language that you noticed? It could be any number of things but

the point is that something was triggered and you felt it inside. Too often simple things get blown out of proportion because either we don’t understand Laurie or the other person is unMills aware of how their comments or actions affected others. So, instead of just letting that twinge fester until it turns into a real pain in your side, there is a chance to “nip it in the bud” so to speak. One of the simplest approaches at this stage is to simply ask the other person some questions for clarification. For example: “When you said/did____today, I interpreted it this way____and it bothered me because____. Is that what you meant?” Without your feedback, this person is bound to make similar comments again and next time you will likely be more sensitive and react much stronger. This is called the pinch point. At this stage, there is still a chance to talk things out, though the greater your distress the more daunting it can be. Not doing anything at all is worse because if that pinch point is left untended, the tension will eventually build to a breaking point. Then emotions can run so high that reasonable discussion is lost and resolution seems impossible. Everyone around you is impacted and nobody enjoys that kind of friction. What it comes down to is we each need to take responsibility for managing our interactions with others—and the inevitable misunderstandings and disagreements that arise. We can’t control other people’s behaviour, only our own. There will always be people who push our buttons, intentionally or not, and it is up to us how we respond to them.

▼ BUSINESS WALKS

Connecting with local retailers What do Central Okanagan computer stores, law offices, restaurants, retailers and financial services have in common? They represent the types of businesses that will be visited by business leaders in Central Okanagan communities as part of Canada’s inaugural Business Walks event on Oct. 4. The program adds a new component to Small Business Month as representatives of organizations that serve the business community take the time to connect face-to-face with business operators in an informal, casual way and determine how conditions can be improved. The local Business Walks initiative is being organized by the Central Okanagan Economic Development Commission partnered with Westbank First Nation, local mu-

nicipalities, improvement areas and chambers of commerce throughout the region. Business Walks has proven highly effective in strengthening local economies by retaining businesses in a community and creating an environment where they can grow. The Oct. 4 event will take place in Peachland, West Kelowna, Westbank First Nation, Kelowna and Lake Country. More than 70 volunteer business leader “walkers” will call on 300 businesses and have brief conversations around three key questions: How is business? What do you like about doing business in your area? and How can business be improved? The information gathered during Business Walks can be used in a number of ways. For the economic development

commission, Business Walks can help identify needed programs and services for the business community. Civic leaders can better connect with business owners, while business supporters like a chamber of commerce can tailor their services to the expressed needs of the businesses they serve. Corie Griffiths, business development officer for the COEDA, said, “Recognizing the economic impact small business have on the Central Okanagan economy, business retention and enhancement has been the mainstay of COEDC programming. This is an excellent way for service providers throughout the region to come together to improve the services we provide to our local businesses and ensure a sustainable economic climate that promotes growth in the region.”

B

y now, most of you should have already received your Notice of Assessment from the Canada Revenue Agency. Since this NOA is attached to their refund cheque, most people get all twitchy and excitedly rip open the envelope and tear off of the bottom cheque portion. The top piece is generally discarded without any further conscious thought. My most invaluable retirement tip for the summer is that you should retrieve that crumpled paper ball out of the recycling, smooth it out and carefully check the very valuable information that is on it. Here’s what you should look for and a few ideas on what to do with it. 1) The refund or balance owing: Your NOA lets you know if you are getting a refund or if you have a balance owing. You will also see if any corrections have been made to your return by the CRA. Do you agree with their corrections? If you got a refund, what did you do with this ‘found money?’ Did you spend it on shoes? Did you use it to pay off a credit card? Is it sitting in a savings account?

Take the time to review how much of that income is fully taxable interest income (line 121), lower taxed dividend income (line 120) and capital gains (line 127). Should you consider sheltering less tax efficient investments in tax sheltered plans such as a TFSA or RRSP? 3) RRSP Deduction Limit: This limit represents the maximum amount that you can contribute to your RSP and deduct from your taxable income in any given year. There are two lines in particular to focus on in the RRSP deduction limit section of the notice of assessment. RRSP Deduction Limit: If you don’t contribute the maximum for a given year, the amount not used accumulates and is added to the contribution room for future use. For unused RSP contributions, you may also

The session will take place at the campus on KLO road on Tuesday, Aug. 28, at 6:30 p.m., in room H108. Instructors from the program will be on hand to share information about prerequisites for the program, the application and admission process and employment opportunities in the field. Program instructors will also be available to speak about the recent changes to the program’s curriculum.

contribute the maximum or any part thereof but elect not to apply the deduction to your tax return. You may elect to defer the deduction from your tax return until a future year when you anticipate higher earnings and more taxes are payable. Meantime, the contribution will benefit you immediately in the RSP from tax sheltered growth. Any capital loss realized in a year must first be used to reduce capital gains realized in the same year. If the capital losses exceed the capital gains available for offset, these will be shown as an unused capital loss on the NOA. These unused capital losses can be carried back three years and applied against previous capital gains so it would be worthwhile to check your previous tax returns for capital gains.

Demystifying an accountant’s business engagement letter

A

s the owner of a corporation you will need to find an accountant to prepare your year end financial statements and corporate tax returns. Once you meet with the accountant, you will be asked to sign an engagement letter usually before any work commences on the file.

BEHIND THE COUNTER

Gabriele Banka This is a working agreement between you and the accountant and at-

tempts to explain the nature of the work to be performed and outlines who will be responsible for what. An accountant can perform an accounting engagement which means that you require a ‘notice to reader,’ also sometimes called a ‘compilation,’ which would normally be for tax purposes.

In this type of engagement, the accountant does not give an opinion on the accuracy of the information contained in the financial statements. The other two types of engagements are a review and an audit and these are considered to be ‘assurance’ engagements, in that the accountant needs to make some

sort of statement as to the quality and accuracy of information contained in the client’s financial statements. The review engagement requires negative assurance indicating that nothing has come to the accountant’s attention that might be out of the ordinary. The audit requires positive assurance that

the financial statements present fairly the results of the operations of the corporation. The engagement letter formats are all slightly different. For a notice to reader, the standard to follow can be found in section 9200 of the CICA handbook. The CICA handbook is published by the Canadian Institute of Chartered Accountants and contains the Canadian Accounting and Auditing standards that all designated accountants must adhere to, regardless of the educational degree obtained. The review engagement letter standard to follow is contained in the CICA handbook in section 8200—Public Accountants Review of the Financial Statements— Agreeing the Terms of the Engagement. The assurance engagement letter standard to follow is contained in Canadian Auditing Standards (CAS) 210— Agreeing the Terms of Audit Engagements. These standards for audits and review engagements have recently changed due to the adoption of International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) that came into effect Dec. 14, 2010. Audits now follow Canadian Auditing Standards (CAS) instead of Generally Accepted Auditing Standards (GAAS). Review standards are now called Accounting Standards for Private Enterprises (ASPE). I want to review the ‘notice to reader’ version of the engagement letter. The engagement letter is made up of several sections. The first part is who to address the letter to. It should be addressed to the chief executive officer or to the person with the authority to sign on behalf of the company. The first section explains the objective and the scope of the work to be performed. It states that financial statements will be compiled and that no audit or review will be performed. An example of the report that can be expected to be attached to the financial statements is included in this section. The next section outlines the responsibilities of management or those persons responsible for the governance of the corporation. The important points

to note here is that you are agreeing that you are responsible for the numbers in the financial statements and you are responsible for your system of internal control to detect any fraud or error in your corporation—basically that you are responsible for the condition that your company is in. This section also states that you will provide complete and accurate information necessary to compile the statements. This type of financial statement does not necessarily need to comply with Canadian Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) and may not have all the disclosures that would be required for all the types of persons who might need to look a financial statements, such as potential buyers, investors, or creditors. On the other hand, we as accountants need to make sure and move items around or provide disclosure by way of notes so that the financial statements are not misleading for the purpose that they are required which is usually to file taxes. The next section indicates the work that will be performed and may include items such as performing necessary bookkeeping and preparation of the federal and provincial tax returns. There may be a discussion about the preparation of working papers and who has ownership of those working papers. There may be paragraphs related to fees, interest charges, disbursements, confidentiality of information, proceeds of crime disclosure requirements, privacy act disclosure requirements. This engagement letter does not need to be renewed every year if the conditions of the engagement remain the same, but I find that it is better to renew the document to bring the responsibilities of each party back to top of mind. To guard against default if a corporation winds up or becomes insolvent, many accountants include the principle shareholder in the wording of this engagement so that the corporation and the shareholder both become accountable.

Olsen brings size and substantial skills set to Kelowna Rockets Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

By surrendering Shane McColganâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top scorer the last two seasonsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;in a trade with the Saskatoon Blades this spring, the Kelowna Rockets were expecting something pretty substantial in return. After watching new centre Ryan Olsen over the first two days of the clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s training camp, general manager Bruce Hamilton is relatively confident the move will pay dividends. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The first thing is heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a bigger guy, he skates extremely well, and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty skilled on top of it all,â&#x20AC;? Hamilton said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also a year younger (than McColgan), so we could have him here for a couple of years. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s early, but heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s looked excellent in camp so far.â&#x20AC;? Along with a pair of bantam draft choices, the Rockets acquired the 6-foot-2.5, 190-pound Tsawwassen native from the Blades in May for McColgan and fellow forward Jessey Astles. While initially surprised with being dealt to Kelowna, it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t long before Olsen embraced the idea of wearing Rockets colours

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;

NOW THAT Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;M HERE, YOU KNOW Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;M REALLY LOOKING FORWARD TO GETTING GOING AS A ROCKET.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a little bit of a shock at first, but then I thought itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s close to home and I know the Rockets are a great organization,â&#x20AC;? said Olsen, 18. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m here, you know Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m really looking forward to getting going as a Rocket. I know they have a great young team here and I feel like I can really add a lot to that. I feel like lâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m fitting in already and the guys have made me feel welcome,â&#x20AC;? Olsen said. Olsen, who had 15 goals and 32 points with the Blades in 2011-12, will give the Rockets some size up the middle, an element the club has been lacking the last couple of seasons. A sixth-round draft pick of the NHLâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Winnipeg Jets, he will also be asked to provide some offense on a Rockets team that will likely have to employ a scoring-by-

committee approach in 2012-13. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to need a bunch of 20-goal scorers, maybe some with 25, and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a guy weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to count on a lot this year,â&#x20AC;? Hamilton said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m looking forward to seeing him once we get a month into the season, let him get his feet underneath him, and seeing what he can do.â&#x20AC;? For Olsenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s part, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s never felt better prepared for the start of a new season and is ready to make a significant impact with his new team. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My confidence is at an all-time high and I like where my game is at,â&#x20AC;? said Olsen, who played two seasons in Saskatoon. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m in the best shape of my life right now, and I

feel like I can hopefully jump right into the first line centreman role that want to be on this team.â&#x20AC;? While the configuration of the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lines will be a work in progress in the pre-season, head coach Ryan Huska said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll look at possibly teaming Olsen up with two other skilled forwards, such as Colton Sissons and Zach Franko.

ROCKET SHOTSâ&#x20AC;Ś Training camp continues Thursday for the Rockets at Prospera Place with on-ice sessions at 9 and 10:45 a.m., and 5 p.mâ&#x20AC;ŚKelowna will play two exhibition games this weekend against the Vancouver Giants: Friday in Ladner, and Saturday, 7 p.m. at Prospera Place.

Young stays steady and sure at Ironman

PHILLIP MACCALLUM/CANADIAN PARALYMPIC COMMITTEE

Warriors host Wenatchee Wild Friday at Royal LePage Place The West Kelowna Warriors will close out their B.C. Hockey League pre-season schedule with two more games this week. On Thursday, the Warriors will be in Penticton to take on the Vees, then will return home to battle the Wenatchee Wild on Friday night at Royal LePage Place. After the games, West Kelowna head coach and GM Rylan Ferster should be close to making final decisions on his roster for the 2012-13 campaign. The Warriors dropped

a 5-1 decision to Vernon in exhibition play Tuesday at LePage. It was the teams’ second meeting in 24 hours after skating to a 3-3 the night before at Wesbild Centre in Vernon. Adam Tambellini scored three times to pace the Vipers attack. Joe Serpico and Riley Hunt also scored for Vernon. Captain Max French replied for the Warriors on a first period power-play, in a game that deteriorated into a steady stream of players heading into the penalty box.

BILLET FAMILIES NEEDED The West Kelowna Warriors are looking for Billet Homes for the 2012-2013 Season. If you are interested in hosting one of our fantastic hockey players please contact: Kim Cloutier @ 250-859-6869 Michelle Hebert @ 250-212-4065

The teams combined for 16 minor penalties, a major, three misconducts and a game misconduct over the final 40 minutes. Warriors rookie defenceman Adam Plant chalks it up to pre-season hockey. “It’s fun, you can get on the power-play and just try and work your magic there,” said Plant. “It’s pre-season hockey, you don’t really get that good flow. Everyone is new and you don’t really know where people are going to be and it gets a little scrambly which leads to penalties.”

Cody Porter and Garrett Rockafellow split the netminding chores for the Warriors. Porter, who won’t turn 15 until next month, made several spectacular saves in turning aside 28 of the 31 shots he faced over the first half of the game. Rockafellow allowed two goals on 18 shots. Austin Smith went the distance for Vernon facing 39 shots. The Warriors open the regular season next weekend in Chilliwack at the BCHL’s inaugural Showcase facing Salmon Arm and Surrey.

A new personal best was more than enough to carry Chris Young to an age group title for the second straight year at Ironman Canada. The 23-year-old Kelowna product completed the 3.8 km swim, 180 km bike, and 42.2 km run Sunday in Penticton in nine hours 36 minutes 51 seconds as he captured the men’s 18 to 24 division title. Young, who was 42nd overall in his first Ironman last year, vaulted up 18 spots to place 24th this summer. “I set kind of an unrealistic goal of 9:30, I wanted to finish better than 9:40, so I was right the middle of that,” said Young, who attends university in Vancouver. “I was pretty happy, I got lucky where everything went right. You can’t always say that about these events, I was fortunate in many ways. “I had a lot of family and friends supporting

me, so that was nice, too.” The result also qualifies Young for the World Ironman Championships for the second year in a row in October in Kona, Hawaii. Meanwhile, Luke Way was the fastest Kelowna competitor on Sunday as Penticton played host to its last Ironman Canada event. Way, a professional triathlete, was 19th overall and 10th out of 17 pros in 9:30:44. Kelowna’s Laurelee Nelson won her age group at Ironman for the fourth time since 2008, tak-

ing the women’s 55 to 59 group in 11:30:45. The first Kelowna woman to finish was Liza Burgess who placed 485th overall in 11:30:28, one spot ahead of Nelson. Other results for local athletes included Chris Willett placing 203rd overall in 10:38:08. Michael Owen was 225th overall in 10:43:53. Scottsdale, Arizona’s Matt Russell won the overall title in 8:48:30, while Penticton’s Olly Piggin took second in 8:54:17. For complete results, visit ironman.ca.

More BCMML teams to playoff The B.C. Major Midget League has increased the number of teams that make the playoffs from six to eight for the 2012-13 season. B.C. Hockey announced the change in the playoff format as teams around the province concluded their initial training camps. The new format will see teams compete in a best of three series with the first place team hosting the eighth place club, second versus seventh, third against sixth and fourth vs. fifth. “The addition of two

playoff spots will create a much more focused attention to the development of players and less on winning,” said major midget league director Joe Downing. “The league’s mandate is to develop all players to play at a higher level of hockey. I am thrilled to add two more teams to our playoff format. The change will allow our coaches to focus more on the development of their players.” The B.C. Hockey Major Midget League champion shall be the B.C. Hockey representative at the Hockey Canada Pacif-

ic Regional and National Midget Championship. The B.C. Hockey Major Midget League was established in 2004 to provide elite level 15, 16 and 17 year olds an opportunity to play within their own age group at a high level and be developed for the next level of hockey. These teams have an opportunity each year to compete for the National Midget Championship. For more information about B.C. Hockey, please visit the B.C.

THE KELOWNA CUBS, flying the banner of Team B.C., brought home the silver medal from the Western Canadian Peewee AA Baseball Championship in Manitoba. we wanted, we went 4-0 in the round robin, we were feeling strong and healthy,â&#x20AC;? Chamberlain said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But they had this big, strong left-hander who was really in control. We did a pretty good job over the course of the season coming through with runners on base. But against him we couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get it done. The boys still did a great job and gave it everything they had.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;This was a hardworking group that tried to get better everyday,â&#x20AC;? he added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was fun watching their progress and it was an exceptional group of kids.â&#x20AC;? After the 2012 house season ended, the Cubs added two players from Rutland and began the summer ball schedule in early July. Over the summer, Kelowna posted a 26-5 record.

A pair of karate kids have qualified for the Junior Pan-American Karate Championships to be held in Mexico this weekend. Claire Boothe and Sukhresh Kaloty of the Taneda Karate Dojo will be representing Canada at the 13th annual Junior Pan-American Championships Aug. 30 to Sept. 1 in Cancun, Mexico. Both Boothe and Kaloty qualified for this tournament by placing at the Canadian National Championships back in March. Claire is the reigning Canadian National Champion in the girls 16 and 17 years old 48kg Kumite (sparring) division. The Pan-American Championships are the continental championships for the combined North and South America. Each country is only allowed to send two athletes per division to this tournament. Boothe and Kaloty also represented Canada at the Junior Olympics and US Open in Las Vegas in April where Boothe won silver in the Junior Olympics and bronze in the US

A strict diet and training regime this year helped Kelownaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Laura Dyck become a prominent figure on the national bodybuilding stage. Dyck, 40, competed at the Canadian Bodybuilding Federationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s national championships earlier this month in New Westminster where she posted a pair of top-six results. She took sixth place in the Masters 35-and-over division, then followed up with fifth-place performance in the Open Figure (19-and-over) category. Thanks to her fifthplace showing, Dyck qualifies to return to nationals next year, as well as the IFBB North American Championships, the IFBB Amateur Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s World Championships and the IFBB Arnold Amateur Classic. It was eariler this year that Dyck won a pair of medals at the B.C Amateur Body Building Championships in New Westminster. There she placed first in Master class Figure A, and took second place in the open (all ages) short category. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She has decided to take a well deserved break and enjoy the rest of summer vacationing with myself and the kids,â&#x20AC;? said

At Westerns, the Cubs continued their roll as the B.C. squad posted a 4-0 record in the round robin, extending their win streak to 15 games. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t until the final against Team Saskatchewan (Muenster Red Sox) that the Cubs met their match. The Cubs had beaten Saskatchewan 7-4 in the round robin, but in the championship ran into a tough left-handed pitcher. Liam Hughes also pitched well for Team B.C., going 6 1/3 innings and striking out 13. With the score tied 1-1 in the top of seventh inning, Team Sask struck for two runs to take a 3-1 lead. The Cubs were unable to rally in the seventh and were forced to settle for the silver medal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had everything

The 2012 season didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the golden ending the Kelowna Cubs were hoping for. Still, in the eyes of coach Mike Chamberlain, a silver medal as Team B.C. at the Western Canadian Peewee AA Baseball Championship was an accomplishment worthy of considerable celebration. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Each time you look at it, the silver medal tends to shine a little more,â&#x20AC;? said head coach Mike Chamberlain. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I look at the work we put into this, all the work the kids put in, and to walk away with something like this is pretty nice. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m pretty proud of it and I think in time the kids will be, too. Of course they wanted gold, but silver is awfully good, too.â&#x20AC;? Carrying the colours of Team B.C., the Cubs headed to Morden, Manitoba Aug. 16 to 20 for the Westerns riding an 11game winning streak. Kelowna had gone undefeated at the zone cham-

Heat recruit gains international volleyball experience

He is already one of the best in the nation, but Jim Bell will be getting even more training before he sets foot on the UBC Okanagan gymnasium floor. The incoming middle blocker for the Heat is getting some world-class experience with the national junior volleyball team after being selected as one of the top under-19 players in the country. “I was really honoured to be selected to this team,” says Bell. “It was an amazing feeling to be recognized as one of the top players in the country, and to be selected to represent Canada.” Bell (6-foot-6, Surrey-Earl Marriott Secondary), is using his time with the national squad to soak up all of the instruction he can and he will bring that training and instruction to his freshman year with the

Heat this fall. “The overall training level is awesome and great to be a part of,” says Bell. “Right from the start, everyone pushed each other to be better. It was a great environment with these positive rivalries which everyone benefited from. The experience I have gained here will help me for the rest of my career. “Playing on this team will also be of huge benefit to me for my CIS career. Going into my first year at UBCO, there will be a pretty big gap to fill in my game,” explains Bell, “and playing with the Junior National team will really help me bridge that.” After watching the Olympics and having athletes representing their country on display earlier this month, Bell is excited about playing for the

Maple Leaf and hopes to have more opportunities in the future. “Being part of the national team is every ath-

lete’s dream. Putting on the Red and White and representing our nation is the highest honour,” says Bell with obvious pride in

his voice. “Continuing on with the national team in the future will be a goal of mine after this summer.” Bell and his nation-

al teammates trained this summer at the Centre Sportif de Gatineau, in Gatineau, Que., beginning July 23.

The team is now in Colorado Springs, Colorado for the Junior Norceca Championship through Sept. 2.

NEWS â&#x2013;ź UBCO LIBRARY

Revitalizing intellectual hotspot The $1.4-million renovation to the UBC Okanagan campus library is complete and staff is eager to show off the revitalized space to both the campus community and Okanagan residents. With more seating, additional group study rooms and added quiet reading space, the library is a nexus of rich content, state-of-the-art technology and inspiring space. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Library is the launch padâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;the starting place for students to explore,â&#x20AC;? said Melody Burton, chief librarian.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is the place where people begin their research, their exploration, and quench their thirst for knowledge. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is where they fall in love with research, and understand the value and link between research and knowledge.â&#x20AC;? The UBCO library is part of a larger network of 21 branches and divisions, including on- and offcampus locations. Users of UBCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s library have access to: â&#x20AC;˘ More than 6.3-million volumes

â&#x20AC;˘ More than 875,000 e-books â&#x20AC;˘ More than 165,000 serial titles â&#x20AC;˘ Nearly 5.7-million digital collections (pages, images) â&#x20AC;˘ More than 5.3-million microforms â&#x20AC;˘ More than 883,000 maps, audio, video and graphic materials. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Library changes throughout the year, like the academic calendar, with peaks and lows,â&#x20AC;? said Burton. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an intellectual hotspot. The library is an active study space, representative of differing energies depending on the academic season.â&#x20AC;?

Wentworth music school students stage concert tour in Australia The Wentworth Music Education Centre in Kelowna, now in its eighth year of operation, is wellknown locally for putting on student rock productions in Canada. The shows have raised more than $81,000 to assist childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s programs in Vernon and Kelowna. This past week, the school literally took their show on the road, playing a concert tour across Australia under the guidance of Noel Wentworth, vicepresident of education at Wentworth Music, and associate instructor, Kerry Rottacker. Six Wentworth students formed the Elite Studio Band. It consisted of Katia Wells-Green, Riley Russell, Adam Pendleton, Riley Bentham, Chelsey Ivarson and Tyler Sarris. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It truly was an amazing experience to see the country while playing music,â&#x20AC;? said Wentworth. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have so many stories and made some great new friends as we contin-

ued to develop our international network.â&#x20AC;? Some of the tour highlights included playing a guest spot in the Moonee Valley Battle of the Bands as part of the FReeZA initiative (www.freeza. vic.gov.au), taking lessons and workshops from world class instructors (including Australian Idol finalist Ricky Muscat and renowned vocal instructor and judge Liz Tripodi) at Vocal Art Studios in Melbourne, several performances with other music schools around the two cities, and the random meeting and hanging out with Mark Evans, the original bass player for AC/DC. The students also received the educational opportunity of a lifetime to sit in on a Sony Music showcase at the Sydney Hard Rock Cafe where they experienced firsthand other acts shooting for their chance at a record deal. Wentworth is no stranger to his students

performing outside of Canada. In 2011, he took a group to Singapore to perform with the Singapore Academy of Rock and to New York City where they worked with world renowned vocal coach Norma Garbo and played a show at the Rockwood Music Hall. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I really would love to see an international network of music schools who creatively push our industry forward through our talented youth,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We take pride in giving students positive opportunities at a time in their lives when they are potentially susceptible to negative influences.â&#x20AC;? The trip to Australia came about all because of new connections opened up through an examination board from the UK called Rockschool. Rockschool gives students the opportunity to study culturally relevant music such as rock, funk, latin, blues, fusion and metal and strive for taking

exams to receive certification similar to classical exam boards like the Royal Conservatory of Music here in Canada. After the whirlwind Australia tour, Wentworth was welcomed home with the news he had been waiting to hear for more than two yearsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;accreditation from the B.C. Ministry of Education for his school. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What that means is that for the first time in Canadian history, students can now study music that is culturally relevant to them through Rockschool, and like classical exam boards are able to receive external high school credit for Grades 10, 11 and 12 for passing exams at certain grade levels of the Rockschool program,â&#x20AC;? he explained. Local MLA Norm Letnick, who advocated for the program to be recognized, said: â&#x20AC;&#x153;This accreditation is good for our community, students, as well as local music businesses.â&#x20AC;?

NEWS ▼ PORN FILM INDUSTRY

▼ BUSINESS SUCCESSION

Students being targeted Continuing a family legacy B.C. Advanced Education Minister Naomi Yamamoto is warning colleges and universities that the adult entertainment industry may begin focusing its efforts on recruiting students in a more visible way than it has done in the past. In a letter sent yesterday to B.C. colleges and universities, Yamamoto advised that, based on news stories out of Windsor, Ont., recruiters for the adult entertainment industry may try to attend post-secondary job fairs this fall in juris-

dictions across Canada. This past spring, the industry suggested it would recruit on or near Vancouver public schools, which prompted a response from school board officials who felt strongly that public educational facilities are not the place to recruit workers for these industries. The provincial government supported that response for the K-12 school system, and believes the same position is warranted for our public post-secondary institutions.

Kim Inglis CONTRIBUTOR

Many business owners want their legacy to continue. Unfortunately, according to BDO Canada, only one-third of familyowned businesses survive the transition to the second generation, with just a third of these getting to the next—a mere one in 10 chance of the business surviving for three generations.

Often, the reason is insufficient planning. Similarly there is insufficient planning for the personal financial management that follows the transition from a businessderived income to a retirement income. While division of the estate may be thought out, often the management of retirement income is not. When the business owner moves from work into retirement, there will be portfolio consid-

erations beyond the generation of investment income. These include, but are not limited to, such things as cost-effective withdrawals from tax-deferred accounts, various clawbacks, different risk assessments, and income related to the ongoing business. An advisor needs the right skill set to handle these new challenges. When first saving for retirement, investors often choose an advisor of a similar age because they feel that the advisor can better relate to their life circumstances. While this may work well during growth years, it can lead to problems as retirement approaches. Advisors of the same age might be mapping their own retirements and planning to exit the investment industry. Whether that is good or bad depends on the advisor. Some retiring advisors will transition their business to younger advisors or associates. They carefully choose successors who will best serve their clients, and work closely with them to ensure they are a good fit in terms of business and investment philosophies. Some advisors introduce their successors to clients and start the transition process early. Other advisors may not be as caring or thorough, choosing instead to sell their book of client business to the highest bidder. Whether the transition is thoughtful or not, the retiree must make certain that the new advisor is the right match, with a clear understanding of retire-

ment goals, and can provide a written Investment Policy Statement detailing how the portfolio will be managed. A good advisor will also perform a critical role beyond management of the retirement portfolio. It is to lessen the business owner’s worry about the difficult issue of assets surviving generational transfers. It is a very important topic that typically does not receive enough discussion. Too often, advisors focus on getting the assets ready for transfer but do not prepare the inheritors for handling the newly acquired wealth. It is a process that involves sensitive communications between the advisor and the family members, made more delicate as shortcomings are identified. That may be why some advisors choose to avoid such conversations. However, the better advisors see it as their duty to prepare clients’ families by identifying and rectifying any weaknesses prior to transition. The trust that is built by the process benefits all. A business owner wants to prevent the family fortune going from shirtsleeves to shirtsleeves in three generations. Succession plans, whether business or personal, help ensure that legacies continue. That planning takes time but it is time well spent. Kim Inglis is an investment advisor and portfolio manager with Canaccord Wealth Management, a division of Canaccord Genuity Corp.

Vitamin D supplement wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t treat depression V â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC; itamin D has gained a lot of media attention in recent years as we learn its importance in many areas of health.

Those with low vitamin D were randomly assigned to either receive 40,000IU of vitamin D for six months or placebo. Depressive symptoms were evaluated during the course of the study. At the outset, there were no differences between the placebo and vitamin D groups and those with low vitamin D were more depressed than those with high serum

ENTERTAINMENT Artist makes visual impact of market place disparity Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

One might say, the orchard is the apple of Julie Elliot’s artistic eye, at least the Canadian orchard. A veteran grower herself, Elliot’s installation stands as an example of the Art for Change theme of this year’s Lake Country Artwalk, and she’s taking a bite out of the free trade debate with the work. Illustrating how American apples flood the Canadian market, making it difficult for orchardists to survive, she hopes to give all those who stop by her print installation a taste of the disparity between American and Canadian growers. “The market is just deluged with American ap-

Julie Elliot

ples,” she said. The art work “was made for the 2011 growing season, and at that time I think there were 109 million boxes of apples in Washington to three million grown

in B.C.” The original piece thus had 109 prints of apples representing 109 million boxes of apples each; in the middle of all those boxes sit three real apples,

impaled on spikes, depicting the Canadian portion of the fruit business. Looking at the sea of red swirling images, it’s easy to see the imbalance; and the point could equal-

ly be made for cherries. This year cherry orchardists topped the headlines with stories of fruit crops left to rot on the trees because cheap fruit coming up from the States eliminated Canadian growers’ profit margins. Even as a grower, Elliot says the farmers’ plight can seem baffling unless one is confronted with an illustration of what’s hap-

pening. “I knew it intellectually, but until I made that visual connection, I didn’t really have the full (scope) of the issue,” she said. Her point in making this piece is to demonstrate how important it is to buy B.C. Every year, she and her husband stop in at grocery stores throughout the province to see if there are Canadian apples for purchase, often with dismal results. “I think it’s improving,” she said. “For years, you wouldn’t be able to buy anything other than American, but today you can usually find some (Canadian).” When she installs “Buy B.C.,” as the piece is called, it will have evolved. There are now four million boxes of Canadi-

an apples grown and sent to market to 116 million American; hence there will be 116 apple prints and four real apples. This is the 18th year of Lake Country’s Artwalk and the event is as essential to the Okanagan art scene as apple pie is to the American way of life. With painters and photographers, sculptors, fibre artists and performers, Artwalk fills the Lake Country Community Complex, 10241 Bottomwood Lake Road, with more than 300 artists and 3,000 original works. Typically, attendance tops 7,000 and the price of admission is a toonie. The event runs Sept. 8 and Sept. 9 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. jsmith@kelownacapnews.com

▼ KELOWNA ART GALLERY

Peer through peephole to see colossal crystals T his summer at the Kelowna Art Gallery the boundary between the real world and the realm of the imaginary will be a thin sheet of drywall. Even people who are not usually fans of contemporary art will want to come to look through a hole in this wall to see the installation by Kristoff Steinruck of a cave of giant crystals in our Mardell G. Reynolds Gallery space. After seeing images of it online a couple of years ago, Steinruck became fascinated by the real version of this cave, which is located in Mexico. Due to its specific conditions (high humidity and extreme heat) gigantic crystals of the mineral selenite have formed there that are the largest in the world.

ON VIEW

Liz Wylie No one can visit the cave, so he decided to recreate it and used it as a set for a video that he shot last year in Lake Country. Subsequently it was decided to recreate the fake cave as an installation at the Kelowna Art Gallery. However, visitors will be blocked from entering it by a freshly constructed wall and, as mentioned, will only be able to look in at the cave through a hole punched through the drywall for this purpose.

The sheer beauty and verisimilitude that the artist has been able to achieve with only the basic materials of cut white polystyrene (for the crystals) and crumpled brown kraft paper (for the rocky walls of the cave) are astounding. The colossal scale of the crystals (taller than people) is also impressive and stunning (and the fake crystals have been built at one half scale of the real ones). But the big mindbender is the slippery notion of reality—and looking at the Crystal Cave gets us going on this train of thought: What is real, what is fake? Why is a distinction between these two so important? After all, our ideas about reality are only theories, and we really have no idea what anything actually is, what

OIL CHANGE

Hansen shows work in September Appropriately titled Bloom, an exhibition of Angela Hansen’s new abstract art works is created in encaustic painting—a medium she describes as mysterious, seductive and luminous.

‘‘

THERE IS A PUSHPULL ACTION GOING ON IN THE WORKS THAT I FEEL MANY PEOPLE CAN RELATE TO…I RECOGNIZE NOW THAT MY CURRENT AWARENESS OF LIFE’S EXPERIENCES COULD NOT HAVE BEEN ACHIEVED WITHOUT THAT JOURNEY.

CONTRIBUTED

WORKS of art by Angela Hansen in encaustic painting are at the Ex Nihilo Vineyards gallery starting Sept. 2. She will be at the gallery from 2 to 4 p.m. that day.

The work is being featured at Ex Nihilo Vineyards’ Creatio Gallery and is the culmination of 10 years of pondering, self-reflection and inspiration. The opening at Ex Nihilo is Sunday Sept. 2 from 2 to 4 p.m. “Encaustic paint’s warmth, depth, richness of colour and transitory personalities has drawn me into its spell. My work is a reflection of explorations with this intriguing medium,” she said. “And

the bonus is it also smells good.” Hansen is an Emily Carr graduate and a B.C. native. Currently she is an art instructor and the fine arts department head at George Elliot Secondary in Lake Country. She has been a teacher in School District 23 for the past 11 years. “I believe being able to think and solve problems creatively is an important life-long skill for young people to have—it is that skill I hope they learn in my classroom,” she said. The works in Bloom capture this philosophy of

growth, the potential and truth in transparency. “The Sanguinea Melancholia paintings are my favourite because they represent a very emotional time in my life, this past year, of the extensions and growth,” she said. “There is a push-pull action going on in the works that I feel many people can relate to in their own lives, and while there may have been discomfort during that time, I recognize now that my current awareness of life’s experiences could not have been achieved without that journey.” Hansen also attributes

her greater appreciation of encaustic and abstract form after the birth of her son in 2008. As a mother she can see and relate to the layers of encaustic and painting to the growth of a new human being. The tools for her works include a small (crème brulée) torch, an old pancake griddle, a heat gun, a small iron, a crock pot and then assorted dental tools and brushes. The results are beautiful and ethereal. Hansen will be in attendance at the show’s opening, 2 to 4 p.m. on Sept. 2, along with a few fellow Creatio Gallery artists including Julia Trops, and Angela Bonten. Hansen will also be showcased Sept. 8 and 9 at the annual Lake Country Artwalk in the Lake Country Community Complex. For more information on Angela Hansen, visit her website www.angelahansenart.com. In keeping with the original philosophy and impact of art on the creation of the winery, Jeff and Decoa Harder, and Jay and Twila Paulson, are proud to support local artists. Ex Nihilo’s relationship with wine and art led to the natural creation of a formal art gallery at Ex Nihilo. “We are proud to offer the opportunity to highlight local artists at our winery,” said Decoa Harder of Ex Nihilo Vineyards. “We established the Feature Artist (area) in the smaller barrel room as it is an elegant room that can beautifully showcase the artist’s works. The room is used regularly for private tastings, dinners and celebrations, and is open daily for viewing.” Artists are hand selected and apply for inclusion in the gallery. All works are by local distinguished artists and are selected for display because of the specific qualities of professionalism, ability and individuality. Ex Nihilo Vineyards celebrates the local artists of the valley and welcomes submissions with a jury process that takes place each January. For more information contact Decoa Harder at 250-766-5522; email decoa@exnihilovineyards.com; or find them on Facebook at www.facebook.com/ExNihiloWine. Hours for viewing the art works are 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. seven days a week.

The cinematography is brilliant, the acting is OK, the storyline thin though not bad, but the special effects of the chase scenes are worth the price of admission alone.

Finding some relief for muscle cramp or involuntary spasm

A

muscle cramp is a sudden and involuntary spasm or contraction of one or more of the muscles in the body, causing a sudden, sharp muscle pain. You may be able to feel or see a hard lump of muscle tissue beneath the skin. Muscle cramps often occur in the legs. Nocturnal cramps that occur in the calf muscles or toes during sleep are also common. Though generally harmless, muscle cramps can make it temporarily impossible to use the affected muscle. Muscle cramps can be caused by overuse of a muscle, such as long periods of exercise or physical labour, particularly in hot weather. They may also be caused by dehydration, muscle strain, or holding

a position for a prolonged period of time. In many cases the cause of a muscle cramp isn’t known.

NEWS ▼ SPCA FUNDRAISER

Trio looking to break free from lock-up at the SPCA animal shelter Three SPCA supporters will get an opportunity Friday to find out what it’s like to be locked up in jail, needing someone to help bail them out. Local media celebrities Klaudia Ceglarz, of CHBC Global News and Christy Farrell, of 103.9 The Juice, along with Westside Warriors junior hockey team corporate sales rep Alex Draper, who also owns Shut Out Sports Collectibles, will be looking to break out of the SPCA shelter kennels, with a little help from their friends. “The Kennel Lockin is being held in many communities around the province,” said Kristin Mazuren, fundraising coordinator for the Kelowna SPCA branch. “The notion is that of a jail and bail where the participants will be seeking donations to get out of the kennel.” The lock-in has been promoted to the public for

a couple of weeks now but the ante just went up when a local business owner got on board as well. Draper has donated a framed 20X16 picture signed by Vancouver Canucks forward Alex Burrows to encourage the public to donate. He will be asking for a minimum of a $5 donation to get your name in the draw for this fantastic piece. “Come on down and see us at the branch on Friday between 9 and 11 a.m. to see all of these great supporters in kennels on their phones calling friends and family on their plight to get out of the Kennel,” said Mazuren. “We will have some snacks and refreshments and it is a great opportunity to meet the staff, volunteers and some of our amazing animals at the shelter.” The Kennel Lock-in is part of the hype leading

to the annual Scotiabank and SPCA Paws for a Cause…Walk for the Animals which takes place Sept. 9 at City Park. This year’s event day activities will include a one kilometre and three kilometre walks, the Dog’s Got Talent contest for those that have a dog with a special talent, a Kids Zone with games, face-painting and bounce house and your chance to Guess What’s in the Big Steel Box to win a prize worth over $500. “This year is going to be fun for the animals and owners alike with many dog games and chances to win some great prizes. We will also have Rocky the raccoon of the Kelowna Rockets at the park,” Mazuren said. The Paws for a Cause is the largest fundraiser for the organization and significant because the SPCA receives no direct government funding. Start your fundrais-

Plantar fasciitis can emerge from wearing summer footwear

A

fter an entire summer of wearing flip flops and sandals, you might be experiencing some foot pain. But not all foot pain is footwear-related. The plantar fascia is a soft tissue that attaches from the heel bone and fans out to the five toes. It is responsible for supporting the arches in the feet, helping to hold the bones of the foot together, protecting the bottom of the foot from injury and assisting with push off during running, jumping and sprinting. Plantar fasciitis is a common injury that is caused by repeated excessive force over a period of time leading to micro tears and inflammation in the plantar fascia. It is one of the most common causes of heel pain and usually presents with sharp heel pain especially on the first few

KEEPING YOU MOVING

Adam Bernard steps in the morning or after rest. This is a common injury in many athletes including runners. There are many reasons why people develop plantar fasciitis. These can include errors in training, muscle imbalances, age changes in the fascia, alignment problems and poor fitting or worn out footwear. Over training or compressing your training schedule is a common cause of this condition. Runners who are starting to train for longer races, including 10 kilometre marathons, full marathons

or longer, should progress their training over time to reduce the chances of developing this condition. As a physiotherapist, when I assess this condition, I will look at several factors. Some of these include your gait pattern, muscle and joint imbalances and the wear patterns on your footwear. I will also palpate to locate the main areas of pain and come up with a custom treatment based on your specific assessment. In cases where your arch is not being supported sufficiently, a tape job called the low dye can be helpful. In other cases, a referral for orthotics may be needed. Some other treatment options include education on the condition, training strategies, activity modification, ice, stretching, ul-

trasound and rest. Your treatment will vary depending on your individual condition and needs. You may also be shown some home exercises which may include: stretching of the plantar fascia and calf muscles, picking up marbles with your toes and scrunching up a towel to improve strength and flexibility in your foot. There is no better sense of accomplishment than running in a great race, but remember to start your training early because it may just save you from a painful visit to your primary health care professional.

There were a few kids who were really into magic, but I didn’t have anything else to teach them. “Doing a DVD was a natural way (to let) somebody take the next step.” The video is for children six and up and features 12 tricks: Six that utilize a magic wand, which comes with the DVD, and six that feature household items. “Normally the age when kids are most interested in magic is between six and 12…I designed it so it’s simple enough that a mom can watch it once, sit with her kids and teach them how to do it too.” David’s own journey started with a magic kit, which was a Christmas present from his uncle.

Magic Academy: How to be a Magician, is an instructional DVD for young aspiring illusionists. “When I perform for birthday party shows, after the show I do a magic wand workshop—people can buy magic wands for the kids instead of doing a goody bag,” said David. “I teach kids how to do a couple tricks with the

That’s why I created a DVD rather than doing a book.” He said the tricks range in difficulty, from an extremely basic maneuver that requires minimal skill to a complex sleight of hand illusion. David said he has thought about creating additional videos that feature more complex tricks; however, it will likely depend on demand and how successful his debut DVD is. With his busiest sum-

mer ever in the rearview mirror, David is gearing up for a high-demand winter, which will feature several Christmas parties and corporate events. Many of those clients are repeat customers; therefore, the local magician has been working hard to keep his act fresh. “I’m constantly studying and learning new material…I’ve got a list right now of a dozen things I’m working on and trying to get into a show before Christmas.” Along with the steady demand from customers, David is continuing to earn recognition among the magic community as well.

It was always my intention to serve my community, to work for my community.” Chris is a “third or fourth cousin” of former chief Ron Derickson who has served in several capacities over the past 16 years, including past chair of the WFN Economic Development Commission, community planning coordinator and chair of the WFN Allotment Commission. Although his background in politics is limited, Chris Derickson has experience working with council members.

While Westbank First Nation Coun. Chris Derickson has an impressive resume, he doesn’t have political experience. But that didn’t seem to matter to band members as they voted him into power during the WFN council’s Aug. 24 by-election. The position opened up after former councillor, Loretta Swite-Ghostkeeper, stepped down to pursue an employment opportunity with WFN. Derickson beat out 11 other candidates for the position, including former chief Brian Eli. “It wasn’t a surprise to a lot of people, but it was to me. You never know how it’s going to turn out on election day,” said Derickson. Derickson said there will be a sig-

nificant learning curve for him to adjust to, but he’s looking forward to the challenge. “You hit the ground running with this job, so you’ve just got to learn to keep up with the rest of them, get familiarized with the issues and hopefully contribute something.” The new WFN councillor said he’s always been interested in serving the public, but he wasn’t sure if other commitments would get in the way. Derickson will begin a master’s program at UBC’s School of Community and Regional Planning in September. He will also be busy doing research—a project he was awarded an aboriginal graduate fellowship to conduct. He said he had to check with the school to ensure he could balance regular studies, research and local government responsibilities at the

Health workers told to get flu shot or wear a mask Tom Fletcher CONTRIBUTOR

B.C. health care workers will be required to get an annual influenza vaccine or wear a mask in all patient contact areas in the community or publicly funded facilities, starting with this year’s flu season. Provincial Health Officer Dr. Perry Kendall announced the regulation last week, a public health policy that is a first for Canada. It applies to health authority staff, doctors, volunteers, students, contractors and vendors who come into contact with patients. Free flu shots have been made available to B.C. health care workers for years, and despite encouragement, fewer than half take advantage of them.

DR. PERRY KENDALL outlines new health care workers’ policy for dealing with influenza. The average vaccination rate for long-term care employees is closer

to 60 per cent, but Kendall said that rate is still too low and has declined in

munization considers it a “professional responsibility” for health care workers to get their flu shot every year, Kendall said. The mask option is being offered for workers who have a medical reason not to be vaccinated, and to avoid disputes with employees who simply refuse. “Progressive discipline” would be imposed on employees who refuse both during flu season, just as it would be for those who fail to wash their hands or take precautions when coughing, Kendall said. B.C. is the first province to move to mandatory influenza protection, following the lead of U.S. jurisdictions where vac-

cination has increased to more than 95 per cent. The B.C. Centre for Disease Control estimates that complete vaccination of health care workers would reduce the risk for patients by 47 per cent, as well as protecting the workers from exposure from infected patients. The annual influenza shot is made available around Thanksgiving each year, to prepare for a season that typically runs from late November until March. A new formulation is used each year to match the strains most likely to be circulating in North America during the winter. Kendall said he doesn’t know why immunization

recent years. Canada’s national advisory committee on im-

rates for health care workers have declined. But he cited persistent myths about hazards of contracting the flu from the vaccine or experiencing other adverse effects, which he said are very rare. “Some people believe they are healthy and don’t get influenza,” he said. The Canadian Nursing Association, the College of Registered Nurses of B.C. and the B.C. College of Physicians and Surgeons all support vaccination for health care workers.

Climate change deniers fading away

M

ost North Americans know that human-caused global warming is real, even if political leaders don’t always reflect or act on that knowledge. According to a recent poll, only two per cent of Canadians reject the overwhelming scientific evidence that Earth is warming at alarming rates—a figure that may seem surprising given the volume of nonsense deniers (many of them funded by the fossil fuel industry) spread through letters to the editor, blogs, radio call-ins, and website comments. Polling indicates more deniers live in the U.S., but they still make up just 15 per cent of that population. It’s getting harder to ignore the evidence: Record high worldwide temperatures; increasing extreme weather events; devastating droughts, floods, and wildfires; animal and plant species turning up where they’ve never been found before; record ice loss in the Arctic and Greenland; melting glaciers. The trends are exactly as climate scientists predicted. Meanwhile, one of the few “skeptic” climate scientists, Richard Muller, recently reversed his thinking. Muller and colleagues at the University of California, Berkeley, studied climate data dating back to 1753, then looked at possible causes of the unusual warming observed since the mid-1950s. (Ironically, the study was funded in part by the Charles G. Koch Charitable Foundation, founded by climate change skeptics with heavy interests in the fossil fuel industry.)

Their conclusion? It’s not the sun. It’s not volcanoes. The most likely cause is humans spewing massive amounts of carDavid bon dioxide into the Suzuki atmosphere, mainly by burning fossil fuels. This isn’t news to most climate scientists. As evidence builds, deniers are starting to change their tune. They once said global warming isn’t happening, and some claimed the world is actually cooling. Now, heat records are being broken worldwide – this past decade was the hottest on record. Many scientists say the situation is even more severe than first thought, with temperatures and impacts increasing faster than predicted. Faced with the evidence, many deniers have started to admit that global warming is real, but argue that humans have little or nothing to do with it. Muller’s study was just one of many to demolish that theory. Our climate has always changed, and natural variation is part of that. But scientists have long known that carbon dioxide and other gases trap heat in the atmosphere. Recent warming is occurring at an unprecedented rate that corresponds to burning fossil fuels. According to NASA, global average temperatures have been rising significantly since the 1970s, “with the 20 warmest years having occurred since 1981 and with all 10 of the warmest years occurring in the past 12 years.” North America just experienced the hottest July on record, and the first seven months of 2012 were the warmest, on average, in more than 100 years.

SCIENCE MATTERS

This evidence has caused some deniers to change their tune again. Yes, the Earth is warming, they say, but whether it’s from natural or human causes, we can’t do anything about it, so we might as well continue with business as usual, maybe employing technological fixes to help us adapt. There’s also a subset of deniers who see some nefarious conspiracy in climate science and “Agenda 21” (a nonbinding, voluntary UN agreement on sustainable development) to impose a world government or something, but their irrational arguments aren’t worth the time of day. The truth is, as most of us know, that global warming is real and humans are major contributors, mainly because we wastefully burn fossil fuels. We also know solutions lie in energy conservation, shifting to renewable sources, and changing our patterns of energy and fuel use, for example, by improving public transit and moving away from personal vehicles. Scientists have been warning about global warming for decades. It’s too late to stop it now, but we can lessen its severity and impacts. The side benefits are numerous: Less pollution and environmental destruction, better human health, stronger and more diversified economies, and a likely reduction in global conflicts fuelled by the rapacious drive to exploit finite resources. We can all work to reduce our individual impacts. But we must also convince our political and business leaders that it’s time to put people – especially our children, grandchildren, and generations yet to come – before profits.

KUCHMA, SHEILA May 23, 1931 – August 25, 2012 It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Sheila Kuchma on August 25, 2012 at Hospice House in Kelowna, BC. Sheila leaves to mourn her loving husband of 59 years, Steve; daughter Hollie Lorentz of Kelowna; son Steven (Carla) of Saskatoon; grandsons: Jeff Lorentz of Kelowna, Tyler Kuchma of Clairmont, AB and Cole Kuchma of Saskatoon and great granddaughter Kiera Kuchma of Clairmont, AB. She also leaves behind her brother Geoff (Betty) Smith of Fish Hoek, South Africa; her sister-in-law Joan Smith of Louth, Lincolnshire, England; brother-in-law Roland Darley of Spalding, Lincolnshire, England; sister-in-law Rose Esplin of Maple Ridge, BC and numerous nieces and nephews. Sheila was predeceased by her parents Harold and Edith Smith, brother Bernard Smith and sister Audrey Darley. Sheila met Steve in England in 1952 and they were married on February 20, 1953. Steve’s Air Force career saw them relocate to Comox and Richmond, BC and Portage la Prairie, Manitoba. While living in Portage la Prairie she worked at a local jewellery store for many years. In 1992, they decided to retire in Kelowna, BC. Sheila’s favourite passions were gardening, baking, going for walks, reading a favourite novel and spending time with family and friends. She could quite often be found sitting on the park bench in front of the house visiting with anyone passing by. Her ready smile and caring nature made her endearing to those who met her. Sheila will be missed for her thoughtfulness, kindness, generosity and most of all her positive outlook on life. The family would like to express it’s deepest gratitude to all the staff of the Cancer Centre of the Southern Interior, the paramedics who attended her, Doctors and nurses on ward 4B at Kelowna General Hospital and the nursing staff and volunteers at the Central Okanagan Hospice House. A Memorial Service will be held on Thursday, August 30th at 1:00 pm at Springfield Funeral Home, 2020 Springfield Road, Kelowna, BC. Flowers gratefully declined. For those so wishing, memorial donations for Sheila may be directed to the Cancer Centre for the Southern Interior, 399 Royal Avenue, Kelowna, BC, V1Y 5L3 or the Central Okanagan Hospice Association, Hospice House, 2035 Ethel Street, Kelowna, BC, V1Y 2Z6.
