he acrid smell of wood smoke still hangs in the air as a hot summer sun beats down on the black spires and singed trees, grass turned to ash, and fine black dust along the benches above Trepanier Creek. Red-suited figures swing pulaskis and shovels at the dusty earth, digging to reach smoldering tree roots and douse hotspots before they flare again to threaten homes and forest. This has been the driest August and September in the Interior for as long as weather records have been kept, with only 5.4 mm of rainfall in that period, and with long hours of sunshine, reports David Jones, meteorologist with Environment Canada.

CLOSE-UP

Prepared for a fire

Students help put out the hotspots

from A1

In some Interior communities record high temperatures have been recorded this week, even though summer officially ends Saturday with the autumn equinox. The hot, dry weather has stretched the normal forest fire season well into September, and it’s forecast to continue through to the end of the month. That’s not good news for firefighters challenged by the raging Trepanier Wildfire that swept through the Trepanier Valley and into Peachland on Sunday, Sept. 9, destroying four houses, vehicles, and outbuildings, and turning a commercial vineyard into rows of crisp brown skeleton leaves with roasted bunches of ripening grapes. In all, the flames caused devastation in 213 hectares of forest along Trepanier Creek and up the steep slopes of Pincushion Mountain before crews got the upper hand, and this past week they’ve been mopping up. “It was an extremely vigorous fire with extreme behaviour. It was spotting 500 metres ahead of the main fire, so even a 500-metre fire guard wouldn’t have offered enough protection,” said Dale Bojahra, forest protection technician. In fact, although there are certainly many steps

Judie Steeves STAFF REPORTER

Dale Bojahra that can and should be taken by communities to make them firesafe, there is sometimes extraordinary fire behaviour and facing that, no community is really firesafe, he admitted. Gusty winds were unpredictable at the height of the Trepanier Wildfire, so it was difficult for firefighters to get a handle on it, he said. However, as long as there are high temperatures and low humidity in this region, the risk of wildfire won’t lessen much, noted Bojahra. He said the forest service prepares based on the fire hazard, looking twice a week at the forecast and preparing accordingly, so despite the loss of some summer students who returned to class in September, crews were available on standby when the call came in about the Trepanier Wildfire. The forest service also has a Mutual Aid Agreement with all fire departments in the Okanagan, so they work togeth-

However, there is no fire department in much of the Trepanier Valley, which is outside the boundaries of Peachland, so residents rely on the forest service to attend forest fire calls unless staff make the decision to call on mutual aid partners such as Peachland. Other such areas within this regional district include some properties in upper Ellison, some between Kelowna and the Joe Rich Fire District, some along Westside Road between the North Westside Fire Protection District and the Wilson’s Landing Fire District; but the June Springs and South Lakeshore areas are covered by a contract with the City of Kelowna, and

the Brent Road area south of Peachland is covered by a contract with Peachland, reported Bruce Smith of the regional district. At the peak of the fire, Bojahra estimates there were 100 firefighters from departments throughout the valley as well as the forest service crews battling the blaze and at one point two kilometres of hose and hand guard were extended along one side of the fire. He advised that residents of both rural communities and urban ones should fireproof their properties, using the tips available from the forest service or online at: www. wildfire.ca/Fighting Wildfire/Safety/ Bojahra said forest service staff do their best

CLOSE-UP ▼ AFTER THE FIRE

Response time criticism dismissed by Peachland mayor Kathy Michaels STAFF REPORTER

Controversy over the way the Trepanier fire was dealt with in the moments after it was detected, spread almost as quickly as the flames themselves. Recordings archived on the website RadioReference.com, and published by various sources

this week, offered a glimpse into what those first on scene saw and how quickly conditions got out of hand. It also cast a pall over what was previously described as a heroic effort by fire services. “We got a fire here, a grass fire/forest fire,” an RCMP officer said, less than a minute after the fire was called in.

Torched rural area vivid reminder of a fire’s wrath

highway into the area, awaiting backup. Eight minutes later, concerns heated up as wind-fuelled flames got closer to homes, and police on scene estimated that the blaze was moving at one or two meters every 30 seconds. At 23 minutes from when the first call was made, a Peachland Fire Department truck arrived on the scene. And in ten more minutes, a helicop-

ter was dropping more water. By then, however, the fire was raging. By the end of the night, 1,500 area residents were evacuated because their homes were in harm’s way, and four houses had been turned to ash. Where some are finding cause for concern within the recordings, Peachland Mayor Keith Fielding is finding deeper faith in the fire department’s actions.

“I think our fire chief summed it up really well,” he said. “If the incident happened identically today he would have responded in the same way he did. He followed all the protocols, all the right judgments on how to deal with the issue. I have every confidence in what he did and his ability to protect the community.” And, he said, the “armchair quarterbacks” who

are dissecting their effort, aren’t helping. “I think that it’s really unfortunate that people are pointing fingers and saying, ‘This should have happened that should have happened.’ That’s coming from a place of ignorance,” he said. “This was handled really well, shouldn’t try to apportion blame or point fingers.” The cause of the fire has yet to be determined.

Hands-on lesson in putting out a forest fire

dwelling; not using untreated cedar shakes on your roof and by using fireproof mulches near structures. “An ember from a wildfire is all that’s needed to set bark mulch or other flammable material afire,” he noted. Water was not an issue because they were able to pump water from Trepanier Creek, but it’s vital that water also be available for fighting fires. Except for the occasional hotspot, the Trepanier Wildfire is now out, but it’s a reminder to that community and others to ensure they’ve done all they can to prevent such fires from starting and from then getting out of control. That said, Bojahra noted the community sure was supportive of firefighters’ efforts, providing coffee, cookies and putting up thank-you notices. jsteeves@kelownacapnews.com

At that point the blaze was estimated to be about 15 metres by 15 metres, and calls to area fire services and the B.C. Ministry of Forests were issued. Despite its size, and the aggravating factor of 60 km/hr winds, Peachland’s fire department wouldn’t be responding because it was out of their jurisdiction. Regardless, RCMP members were already blocking traffic off the

Students from A3 red scan conducted by the forest service, and those they discover themselves. Price is one of the forest service’s fire wardens in this zone, and his class of 16 students from all over the school district are often called on to follow up after the initial attack crews have a forest fire under control. By using this crew of students to beat down the edges and put out hotspots, Dale Bojahra, of the forest service, says it frees up fire-

fighter crews to be re-set fighting the fire in other areas. In some instances, they’ll work shoulder to shoulder to patrol an area for remaining ‘sleepers’ or patches of fire burning underground, particularly in interface areas such as Trepanier. “They’ll scour every square foot of ground using hand tools, hoses, water and putting their hands through the dirt to ensure the fire is out,” he commented. Sometimes the students are mixed in with other crews so they can learn as much as possible out

in the field. Price says it’s a program that provides many opportunities for students, in half a year of grade 11 and half of grade 12. For many, it’s a stepping stone to a career, while for others, the skills and training they receive are all that’s needed to get a job after school is out. It’s aimed at students interested in outdoor careers and they learn lots of generic employable skills, including certification in ATV riding, utility arbourist level I, occupational first aid level I,

hazardous materials information (WHMIS), survival skills, bear aware training, compass and GPS training. Price estimates they’re worth thousands of dollars. “Plus, they get an opportunity to do practical, hands-on learning. It’s a chance for them to grow as well,” he adds. Some graduates end up in forestry, while others are welders or in other outdoor occupations. This week, they’re helping people sleep safely in their beds. jsteeves@kelownacapnews.com

flag during school hours next week. “We feel it’s an opportunity to take the stance that human life should be protected,” said Paul Kelly. Heritage Christian was one of four schools where KRTL said its flag would fly after the City of Kelowna rejected a proposal that it fly over city hall during next week’s Protect Human Life Week. Kelowna’s mayor has agreed to proclaim Protection of Human Life Week in the city. As a result of the controversy over the city considering allowing the flag to fly, council changed its courtesy flag-flying policy to only allow government flags to fly over City Hall from now on. On Wednesday, Catholic schools superintendent Bev Pulyk announced that in light of email threats KRTL said it received threatening to burn the flag if it flew over City Hall, she was pulling her permission for the flag to fly at Immacuata Catholic Regional High School and St Joseph’s Elementary school in Kelowna and at Our Lady of Lourdes Elementary school in Westbank. Last week, Pulyk approved the plan to fly pro-life flags at the three schools because the protection of the unborn, she said, was part of the Catholic doctrine. But on Wednesday, she said in light of the reported threats, she felt it

best to err on the side of safety when it came to students and decided not to fly the flags. Kelly said while he respected Pulyk’s decision, he did not share her concern about safety in this instance because the flag would only be up during school hours. He said the school’s existing flag flying policy is to take down all flags at the end of the school day and raise them again the next morning. Kelly said while he had not talked with teachers about how they should address the issue with students, he had spoken to the school’s authority— it is run by the Kelowna Christian Centre—and it felt this would be what he called a great learning opportunity for students. He also said the protection of the unborn is a fundamental belief of the families that send their children to his school. Unlike the public school system, where he Kelly said Christian children are “marginalized” because of their beliefs, his school welcomed the chance to advance the prolife message. Aware of the controversy surrounding the flying of pro-life flags at schools, he said he felt his school would be “doing kids a disservice by not addressing the issue.” Heritage Christian School, which offers kindergarten to Grade 12 education, has a student body of about 300 children.

The debate over abortion in Canada will end up on Kelowna City Hall’s doorstep next week—literally. After failing to convince Kelowna Mayor Walter Gray to rescind his proclamation for Protect Human Life Week next week, the national pro-choice group that demanded he do so has announced it plans to protest outside City Hall every day next week. The Abortion Rights Coalition of Canada and organizers in Kelowna plan to protest from noon to 1 p.m. each weekday, with the exception of Wednesday,

NEWS Protest from A6 when they will protest from noon to 5 p.m. The coalition is upset that Gray agreed to issue a proclamation that says, in part, “it is the intention of this proclamation to promote respect and protection to all human life, especially the infirm, the aged, the handicapped, and the unborn.� “The city’s proclamation policy explains that proclamations are issued to increase public awareness of the cause and/or to promote, support and help meet the activities and programs related to the organization seeking the proclamation,� said coali-

tion’s Vancouver executive director Joyce Arthur. “The mayor has claimed proclamations do not represent an endorsement by the city, but the city’s proclamation policy tells a different story. “ The coalition feels the Protect Human Life Week proclamation far exceeds the role of a neutral event announcement. “Specifically, the city is undermining women’s equality rights and encouraging and endorsing a view that is contrary to Canadian and international law,� said Arthur. And to bolster its claim, the coalition says it sent Gray a legal opinion that the city has a duty

to uphold the rule of law, respect the Charter of

Rights, and foster a community culture that re-

spects women’s rights and freedoms.

View clear in fatal collision

Wade Paterson STAFF REPORTER

Cody Wengenmayr was likely able to see at least 250 metres in front of him before his car hit and killed six-year-old Trey Alphonse and injured Trey’s mother, Iris, in 2010. That was the observation forensic collision

investigator Cpl. Clover Johns made during her investigation of the crash site. Johns testified at Wengenmayr’s trial Thursday. She said she arrived at the scene of the crash— Harvey Avenue’s westbound lanes between Dilworth Drive and Cooper Road—at 2:16 a.m. on Aug. 31, 2010.

City in Action COUNCIL HIGHLIGHTS Ironman Canada Bid Council gave approval for staff to submit a proposal to host Ironman Canada. Kelowna’s bid will be submitted to the World Triathlon Corporation on Sept. 24. Kelowna is an active community that hosts more than 100 events annually. The City’s objective is to link the Apple Triathlon and Ironman Canada and other events to create a celebration of sport and culture that strengthens Kelowna’s position as a leader in active living.

Parkade Borrowing Bylaw City Council initiated an alternative approval process for a $15-million borrowing bylaw. The process seeks Kelowna citizens’ approval to borrow the funds needed to expand the library parkade and build a new parkade on the Memorial Arena property at the corner of Doyle Avenue and Ellis Street. The proposed parkades will accommodate staff parking needs for the new Interior Health development and provide more evening and weekend parking for the public. For more information about the project and the alternative approval process, visit kelowna.ca/ cityprojects.

Electrical Utility Opportunity City Council approved the Electrical Utility Restructuring Opportunity between the City and FortisBC Inc. Council also initiated an alternative approval process to seek the approval of Kelowna’s electors for the Agreement. More detail on the initiative is available at kelowna.ca/cityprojects.

Johns said the asphalt was dry and in good condition and the area was illuminated by street lights. She said she observed an 11.4-metre skid mark that started in the curbside lane and entered the middle lane. She also noticed “rotational scuff marks,” indicating the vehicle rotated counter-clockwise Standing at the start of

Premier opens Reichwald Health Sciences Centre at UBCO Premier Christy Clark officially opened the new home of the Southern Medical Program on Thursday that, for the first time, will see doctors completing their medical training in the Okanagan thus benefiting B.C. students and families. “Our government is focused on investing and expanding post-secondary programs to educate health care professionals so that all families all across B.C. have access to quality health care,� said Clark. “Students tend to practice where they’re trained, and now student doctors can complete their entire medical undergraduate program right here in the Okanagan.� The Reichwald Health Sciences Centre at UBC Okanagan was constructed with a $32.7-million investment by the B.C. government. It accommodates 32 first-year medical students, bringing the num-

ber of first-year medical students in the province to 288, more than doubling the number of spaces since 2001. “With the start of the Southern Medical Program at UBC’s Okanagan campus, we’ve more than doubled the number of first-year spaces for student doctors in B.C.,� said John Yap, Minister of Advanced Education, Innovation and Technology. “The UBC faculty of medicine’s Southern Medical Program, housed in the beautiful Reichwald Health Sciences Centre, is teaching students using the best technology and learning resources available,� said UBC president Stephen Toope. “Just as importantly, it will enable collaborative learning and interdisciplinary teaching opportunities for all of the health sciences.� Deborah Buszard, deputy vice-chancellor and principal of UBC Okanagan, said, “This in-

novative and purpose-built facility provides state-ofthe-art teaching and research space for our faculty and students studying in the Southern Medical Program and the school of health and exercise sciences, and will ultimately enable them to make meaningful contributions to the health and medical fields.� The 4,266-squaremetre facility includes high-tech classrooms and lecture theatres networked with the other three medical program locations in Vancouver, Victoria and Prince George. It also includes smallgroup teaching rooms, teaching and research labs, administration and faculty offices and a human kinetics lab, part of the school of health and exercise sciences. “The journey to becoming a doctor is an incredible one and I wish students and facility members alike every success in what is bound to be an ex-

citing future,� said Health Minister Margaret MacDiarmid. “Increasing the number of B.C. educated doctors through the expansion and distribution of UBC’s medical school is one of the ways we are ensuring there are sufficient physicians across the province to provide quality patient care.� “This stunning building is the culmination of the province’s commitment to ensuring that all parts of British Columbia share in the tremendous bounty of talent and ambition that flourishes in the province,� Dr. Gavin Stuart, dean, UBC faculty of medicine and vice provost, health, UBC. “The UBC faculty of medicine is proud to be part of that effort— through the learning taking place within these walls, and the knowledge that students will take with them as health professionals to surrounding communities.�

B.C. PREMIER Christy Clark talks with four of the first-year medical school students at UBC Okanagan campus following the official opening ceremony for the Reichwald Health Sciences Centre on Thursday. Robyn Buna, a KSS grad who obtained her undergraduate degree at SFU, is happy to be studying for her medical degree in her hometown. “I am grateful to have the opportunity to complete my medical education in the Interior. It’s exciting to be a part of a new program and to learn alongside a medical community that is truly enthusiastic about teaching students.� As part of UBC faculty of medicine’s distrib-

uted medical doctor (MD) undergraduate program, SMP students will spend the balance of the fouryear MD program study-

ing and training in communities throughout the B.C. Interior, having spent their first term in classes in Vancouver.

Parkade counter to council’s stated intention

To the editor: The City of Kelowna council needs to ‘walk the talk’ regarding issues of parking in the downtown core. Did I miss something? What has happened to finding ways for alternate transportation or encouraging people to use transit, to walk or to cycle? Surely, with imagination and creativity, the city can limit the number of cars coming into the downtown core (as much as possible), without having to build more parkades. Creating park ‘n’ rides in partnership with major shopping centers and simple changes to transit stops within the downtown core (along Lawrence) that can get people within one or two blocks from Bernard. Create reasonable annual and bi-annual senior bus passes to encourage ridership. Clean up and complete the Queensway station (a project 10 years overdue)—that would not only serve a purpose but it could be an attractive asset to downtown. If people complain of having to walk one or two blocks,

Romantic or stalker will be up to her Irish eyes

F

ires, flags and various other controversial assignments crossed local news desks in the last week, but their appeal all paled in comparison to the end-of-week gift about a Kelowna dentist who travelled across the globe to find his lady love match. According to stories that ran in the Irish Sun, National Post and Huffington Post—strangely no local sources for this ditty—dentist Sandy Crocker has travelled to Ennistymon, Ireland to find his heart. A year ago he left it there—cue the Tony Bennett song— after chatting to an enchanting 20-something about the weather and getting directions to a local

landmark. A couple of reporters crafted love stories from his tale, but one skipped the interview process and the world got to learn dentists are Kathy better with drills than Michaels sentimental prose. A Huffington Post reporter dug up Crocker’s Plenty of Fish dating profile, where he’d previously shared his thoughts on his chance encounter in mushy keystrokes. “My breath was taken away to the point of near suffocation…She was gentle, graceful, the kind of girl who would enter a shoe store and leave with brown boots, [whose] mother probably thought blue glass was pretty and still collectible,” Crocker wrote, under the

KATHARTIC

name Travel-bug-4u. It’s an unusual assessment, let alone cause to go globe trotting, but if this was 1980s, I’d bet money that women would be swooning in the wake of the story, and filing into the dentist’s office for the first available root canal. These days, however, vague ramblings followed by the decision to stake out a woman’s location based on a brief meeting has become less than romantic. Put simply by several people in my office, it reads less like a love story than it does the background for a pending court case. Of course, we’re jaded and snarky. When you spend your day listening to a police scanner and lurking in courtrooms, it’s difficult to imagine that pursuing daydreams through extreme measures can have a positive resolu-

tion. But, despite my doubts, part of me is rooting for the dentist. Maybe he’s just quirky. After all, there can’t be many men who daydream themselves into an asthma attack with thoughts of women born to potential hoarders, who also like brown boots. That’s an unusual set of attributes to idealize. There’s also, refreshingly, no mention of the usual Kelowna stereotypes of blonde haired, orange skin, giant breasts and overdone tribal tattoos. Another point working in his favour. More than anything, however, I hope his imagined love affair and overwrought prose don’t come back to haunt him. After all, first story out of Ireland

Lars Ethan I think the flag should be on every school. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m 12 and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m happy I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t aborted!

To the editor: Marlon Bartram So, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s OK to welcome Options for Sexual Health into the schools but not the pro life message, is that it? Kimberley Marie Larson How about we teach it allâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; pro-life, pro-choice, options for birth control and ways to practice sex safely, ways to abstain from sexâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;both sides of both issues and let the kids make up their own minds. Krista Krohn So abortionists donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want children to know what abortion really is. Education means learning and schools are for learning. Let the children learn that abortion meansâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;killing a small baby. Debbie Osborne I agree in educating our children too, but I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t agree in educating them with one organizationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opinion. And I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t necessarily think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the schools job to teach children about abortion. I have told my daughter what abortion is and how I feel about it. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need some one-sided organization teaching her.

Dianne Varga Now we have 12-year-old boys telling women what they should do with their bodies and their reproductive lives. Is this what we want as a society? Jarrod Thalheimer If the educational institutions choosing to fly the flag actually support (and even teach) the same social message that the group providing the flag to fly stands for how can that ever be construed as being â&#x20AC;?manipulativeâ&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;?disrespectfulâ&#x20AC;? in any way? It seems like they are being very upfront about what they believe and what they feel is important to stand for. Whatever your personal view on the issue may be isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t being clear about your beliefs and values a good thing to teach children? Glenna June Miles If the children â&#x20AC;&#x2122;underâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; that flag are getting an ideological message instead of a whole message about sex, reproduction, biology, rights of self determination for women, the ins and outs of conforming to targetted information without a complete picture, emotional â&#x20AC;&#x2122;hitsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; to cause them fear and anxiety while they are undereducated on the

facts of â&#x20AC;&#x2122;lifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, being encouraged to â&#x20AC;&#x2122;speakâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; out about a particular â&#x20AC;&#x2122;beliefâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; with consequences beyond their understanding or control, knowledge of intimate sexual contact, etc...there is only one way to construe this. The â&#x20AC;&#x2122;place of learningâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; is using the flagpole (no disrespect for the image) to send a message to the girls and women in that facility that they have no opinion of their own on this matter. I disagree. I am neither for abortion or against abortion. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a part of society, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s legal and should be carried out in a medically safe and healthy environment. Back street abortions disrespect women in every way. Teach them that. Adults, who will manipulate children, before they have critical understanding, represent a low level of respect for the sensibility of vulnerable children. Their bid to enforce their ideological view is deplorable. Melissa Munro Thank you Alistair Waters for your reasoned and reasonable analysis. (Schoolyard being used for Highely Divisive Lobby Issue, Sept. 18 Capital News) The ick factor of using the school grounds and playgrounds of children for the sake of the anti-choice cohort has now reached a new (and puzzling) level.

education that people need to live healthy and satisfying lives, and religiously-based propaganda thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s filled with dangerous misinformation and induces guilt, shame and fear. But please keep complaining about how abortion leads to a demography problem, as that showcases anti-choice ignorance so nicely. While youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re at it, why not compare abortion with slavery? It really helped Stephen Woodworthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s campaign Ted Gerk Sorry, Joyce, This is one battle you have lost. The proclamation stands, and you have provided tons of free advertizing and even encouraged the debate you insist you will not have. We appreciate the help. Until next time then? Kimberley Marie Larson Hi Mr. Gerk! I called the Kelowna Right to Life office and spoke to a very nice man. I called to see if I could get some help with low-income housing for a family member with a disability. Unfortunately the KRL does not provide such things although the very nice man was able to give me the names to other agencies in the community that could help me. Any reason for that? I thought youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d said that the Kelowna Right to Life Society offered those kinds of services?

Encourage bus, bike, walk over more cars downtown Parkade from A10 then I suggest we have a bigger problem on our hands, one that has nothing to do with parking. As for the proposed IH building. Of all people who should understand the value of walking (after all, the new building will only be one block from the main Queensway transit station. )

If parking is the real issue, perhaps the design of the new building should include parkingâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;it works for the Madison. Then there is the question, which has already been answered in the courts, regarding the covenant. Does the City of Kelowna truly expect taxpayers to pay to go back in the courts to challenge this decision? When

does a promise not mean a promise? So what does council do? They initiate the alternative approval process to borrow $15 million, banking on a flawed process where 10 per cent of electors may not take the time to voice their objection. Expanding the Library parkade sounds reasonable, but not the suggested

location of a parkade in front of the museum. Personally I think we all can think of other locations or ways to spend 15 million tax dollars. We need to find ways to work with what already exists and make do. If and when additional housing and business develop in the downtown core, the

city must insist that parking is including in their designs. Until then we have until Oct. 26 to object to the proposed parkade project. I encourage anyone of like-mind to get out and vote against this proposed parkade project. Joyce Mainland, Kelowna

Judie Steeves see things as a whole from overhead and had a “broader” view of the landscape. That broader view translated into his vision for conserving wildlands by protecting them in provincial parks like Okanagan Mountain and Cathedral Lakes—two gems in our crown of parks in this province. John died Sept. 8 so I won’t be receiving any more calls from him asking if I might be interested in his ideas for parkland along Kelowna’s waterfront (restoration of Sutherland Park and its formerly sandy beach, south

where the Tolko mill sits still today); or for an elevated access to the new Bennett Bridge across Okanagan Lake, to ease congestion without taking up any more of City Park or other land in Kelowna’s congested downtown area.

‘‘

JOHN WAS NOT SHY ABOUT SAYING HIS PIECE, AND HE HAD NO SHORTAGE OF INFORMED OPINIONS ON A WIDE VARIETY OF TOPICS.

It was he and Art Hughes-Games who got together and encouraged the city and Rotary to join

with a number of other organizations, from Ducks Unlimited to the Central Okanagan Land Trust and Central Okanagan Naturalists’ Club, to restore what had become a lakeshore waste dump at the outflow of Brandt Creek. Today, more than $1 million later, Rotary Marsh is still not quite the wild spot those two envisioned, but at least it’s a marsh again, purifying the water from what John used to call the little “son of a ditch,” or Brandt Creek, as it discharges Glenmore and north end runoff and wastewater into Okanagan Lake. He had a delightful, droll sense of humour, but like the ideas he constantly came up with, it was original and insightful. He did not suffer fools gladly and he was quick to identify them. John was not shy about saying his piece, and he had no shortage of informed opinions on a wide variety of topics. He also had a long memory of Kelowna and its early days, growing up on Manhattan Point in the 1920s—one that pre-dated that of most of us. For a reporter, such a contact was invaluable because he remembered the roots of this city and this valley better than most of its residents knew them and such recollections are invaluable sources when a fact needs to be checked or a story corroborated. John served for 25

CONTRIBUTED

JOHN WOODWORTH, who was instrumental is several local environmental endeavours, including creation of Rotary Marsh in Waterfront Park, died Sept. 8. years on the board of the Nature Trust of B.C., after Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau appointed him as a founding director, and in recent years he was awarded the Order of Canada. He was justifiably proud of his achievements and the recognition fought for space in his

home office, but he always had a new passion; a new project that he was working on. I never saw him doing nothing. When we lose someone like this, it’s a reminder that we need young blood to step into those shoes and take on with passion the conservation of our special wild spaces;

Foundation supports RCMP volunteer efforts

The RCMP Foundation board of directors held its quarterly meeting in Kelowna this week. Local dignitaries and RCMP officials gathered at the Ramada Hotel on Wednesday evening for a reception to welcome the members of the board, which includes Kelowna city councillor and Capital News business columnist Maxine DeHart, to the Okanagan. Michael Hortie, chair of the RCMP Foundation board, explained that the foundation is a non-profit charitable organization that operates at arms-length from the RCMP administration. It was created in 1995 by the federal treasury board to raise money in support of charitable initiatives taken on by RCMP members, with a particular focus on programs that provide mentorship and leadership to youth.

About 17 per cent of the foundation grants help support programs in B.C. “The mass majority of programs we support are for remote communities where RCMP officers are stationed,” Hortie said. “It is amazing what a $5,000 contribution can do for programs in these smaller communities.” Hortie said he is constantly amazed by what RCMP members do on their own time to help their communities. “We are not a public relations arm of the RCMP but I think if people were more familiar about how RCMP officers volunteer their time in these smaller communities, I think the public perception of them would be a lot different than perhaps it is today.” He said the foundation raises money from RCMP logo licensing royalties, corporate donations and fundraisers.

THE BOARD for the RCMP Foundation joined by local RCMP officers Sgt. Ann Morrison and Const. Federico Angulo, and provincial government cabinet minister Shirley Bond (front row, centre)

Young, old take in Kokanee interpretive programs Wade Paterson STAFF REPORTER

It was hard to find a parking spot at Peachlandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hardy Falls Regional Park earlier this month. Hundreds filed in during the first few weekends of September to take in the Kokanee Spawning Interpretive Program, said Marnie Vanstone, a fish interpreter with the Regional District of the Central Okanagan.

The (eyed eggs) develop into alevin, which is like a miniature fish, but still has the egg sac attached to it, so it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to look for food yet, the food is there.â&#x20AC;? The Regional District fish interpreter said she tells kids the egg sac is the alevinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lunchbox. Once the â&#x20AC;&#x153;lunchboxâ&#x20AC;? is gone, the alevin develop into fry, which have only three days to find their food supply, said Vanstone. Vanstone, who grew up in New Zealand, said she enjoys sharing her

At first the kids were excited to simply point out the biggest landlocked sockeye salmon they could find. But, before long, they were all ears as Vanstone taught them more about the unique fish. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m working with children, I use words like magic and amazing,â&#x20AC;? said Vanstone.

You can love New York all you want, but if you want to play in this

neck of the woods come the end of September it might be worth simply loving The Big Apple’s cultural ambiance. Next week, Canadians

celebrate the third annual Culture Days. Bannered under an “I love culture” theme— in the vein of the famous “I heart New York” pro-

motion—cities across the country will pull out all the stops to help cultural organizations promote what they offer. For Kelowna, it means

a city-wide geo-caching adventure dubbed “culture caching” and a string of events designed to get everyone into the Cultural District. “We’re trying to set up a mixture of spontaneous and planned events so you can bump into the spontaneous events as you’re working through your planned ideas,” said Caroline Ivey, City of Kelowna culture coordinator. Stuart Park, for example, will have a mixture of dance sessions ranging from Latin to square to Ukrainian dancing. Should a cache wind up in the area, those trying out the treasure hunt teaser might notice the dancing and take in the show.

In a traditional sense, caches are treasures which are generally found by hikers using a global position systems and are left by other geocachers. In this case, the City of Kelowna will leave caches that are either traditional or virtual. You might find a prize or be asked to log into a website and answer a question about a site in the Cultural District. “It’s like a giant treasure hunt,” said Ivey, noting everything included will be family friendly and suitable for all ages. Culture Days officially runs from Sept. 28-30, but the main events will be Saturday, Sept. 29. Culture Caching will be available to those using

PUBLIC NOTICE

RECALL AND INITIATIVE ACT

This notice is published pursuant to section 4 of the Recall and Initiative Act. Approval in principle has been granted on an application for an initiative petition. The petition will be issued to proponent Dana Larsen on Monday, November 19, 2012 and signature sheets must be submitted to the Chief Electoral Officer by Monday, February 18, 2013. The Title of the Initiative is: An initiative to amend the Police Act. Summary of Initiative: The initiative draft Bill entitled, “Sensible Policing Act” proposes to amend the Police Act to no longer use provincial police resources on the enforcement of current laws in relation to simple possession and use of cannabis by adults. The draft law would prohibit the use of provincial police resources for this purpose, would require police to report in detail to the Minister of Justice any actual use of resources for this purpose and why it was necessary, and require the Minister to publish that report. The Bill also proposes that the Province would call upon the Federal Government to repeal the federal prohibition on cannabis, or give British Columbia an exemption, such that British Columbia is able to tax and regulate cannabis similar to the regulation of alcohol and tobacco. As well it proposes that British Columbia shall establish a Provincial Commission to study the means and requirements necessary for the province to establish a legal and regulated model for the production and use of cannabis by adults. Last, the Bill would make non-lawful possession and use of cannabis by minors an offence similar to possession and use of alcohol.

Initiative Advertising: Individuals or organizations who sponsor initiative advertising, other than the proponent and registered opponents, must register with the Chief Electoral Officer before they conduct or publish initiative advertising. Registration applications are available from Elections BC. Who May Sign the Petition: Registered voters as of Monday, November 19, 2012 may sign the initiative petition.

land through cultural and contemporary media and techniques. Both artists discourage stereotypes that exclude their place in the context of modern or post modern approaches to art making. As aboriginal women, they believe in a merging of the past, present and future, defined by ancient oral teachings called chaptik stories and dreams. Inherent knowledge that transcends time is a common principle associated with aboriginal worldview. “It’s in our DNA,” is a phrase coined by WFN female elder/teacher and fluent language speaker, Delphine Derickson, which epitomizes this concept. This collaboration between the Kelowna Museums Society and Westbank First Nation is a first for the two organizations. “Westbank First Nation has had a long and positive relationship with the Kelowna Museums, and this exhibition is a reflection of that relationship,” said Gayle Liman, heritage officer and curator for the Westbank First Nation. “The visual and written stories in this exhibition represent the authentic voice of the syilxw people, and the Kelowna Museums Society is to be commended for encouraging a collaboration in which that voice is predominant. “WFN is grateful to all the museums staff for

their hard work and encouragement.” Complementing the body of work created by the artists are exhibits and accompanying descriptions of artefacts bridging their current work to ancestral roots. This marriage of ancient and contemporary blurs the common Euro Canadian perception of past and present, offering a more circular and unending worldview of ‘oneness.’ “This exhibit has been a wonderful collaborative experience with the Westbank First Nation,” said Patti Kilback, associate director of public programing with the Kelowna Museums Society. “Focusing on the land and strength of First Nation culture as interpreted through the extraordinary art and sculpture of sylixw artists Barb Marchand and Janine Lott, as well as through artefacts from both Kelowna Museums collections and Westbank First Nations collections, this exhibit reveals the depth and perspective of this beautiful land that we call the Okanagan.” The public opening of the exhibit will take place at the Okanagan Heritage Museum, located at 470 Queensway Ave., on Saturday at 11 a.m. The artists will be available from 11 a.m. to noon for an informal tour of the exhibit and to speak about their work, process and inspiration.

The Kelowna and District Safety Council Motorcycle Winterization course has become a staple of the councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fall training season. Sponsored and hosted by Kelowna Yamaha, this hands-on workshop will show riders how to prepare their motorcycles and scooters for winter storage. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll show riders how to care for their bikes this fall, so that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be ready to ride as soon as the weather clears next year,â&#x20AC;? said Terry Poirier, owner of Kelowna Yamaha. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you know the proper techniques for winterizing your bike now, you can prevent it from spending valuable spring riding time in the shop.â&#x20AC;? Topics covered will include what to do with your motorcycleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s battery, oil changes, gas, tires, air filters, and more. Students will also learn what jobs are best left to the professionals. This course will be hosted by one of Poirierâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s licensed mechanics on Sunday, Sept. 23, from 9 a.m. to noon, at the Kelowna and District Safety Council facility, 395 Hartman Rd. in Rutland.

Ok Rockets take depth into opener Rockets competitive in the B.C. Div. mix Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

It’s been six years since the Okanagan Rockets won their first and only B.C. Major Midget League championship. From where current general manager Dave Michaud sits, the latest edition of the Rockets could be a legitimate contender to go the distance in 2012-13. “I think the guys sense there’s a real opportunity here this year,” said Michaud. “They bought in right from training camp in August and there’s a real belief in what this team is capable of. The guys really mean business, so we’re excited to get it going.” Head coach James Eccles and the Rockets will raise the curtain on the new BCMML season this weekend at home to the Northeast Chiefs. The clubs will face off Saturday at 6:30 p.m. at the Capital News Centre, then again Sunday at 10 a.m. Michaud points to experience and maturity as two of the Rockets biggest assets heading into the new campaign. “It’s been five years since we’ve had a team this old, we have only three 15-year-old players,” said Michaud. “Their

Major Midget League season Saturday at the Capital News Centre against Northeast Chiefs. maturity shows in the way they carry themselves, there hasn’t been a lot of fooling around. They know what they want and they’re serious about getting it.” Michaud likes the Rockets’ depth all across the board, starting with 17-year-old netminder Brenden Mills. “He’s a big, athletic kid and he really solidifies our goaltending,” Michaud said of Mills, a West Kelowna product. “We encouraged him to stay and we’re glad he accepted.” Anchoring the defensive corps is Alex Gran, 17, back for his third year with the club.

“We can’t stress enough how important a guy like Alex is with his experience. We expect him to take on a leadership role.” Michaud said the club is also excited to oversee the development of 15-year-old blue liner Joe Gatenby, a second round pick of the Kelowna Rockets this spring. Up front, the midget Rockets are generally small, quick and skilled, but do have a pair of returning forwards with both size and talent—6foot-3 Justin Marreck and 6-foot-2 Cortlan Procter. And along with the likes of fellow returnees Brett Mennear and new

captain Branden Wagner, and newcomers Carter Hikichi and Josh Blanchard, Michaud expects ample offense to come from the forward lines. That much seems likely after the Rockets scored 40 times while going 5-01 in the pre-season. “We think we’re going to score goals,” Michaud predicted. “We’re real comfortable with our speed and skill and we really like our depth. We’ll be comfortable rolling four lines.” Last season, the Rockets finished fourth in the BCMML and were eliminated in the opening round of the playoffs. whenderson@kelownacapnews.com

Adam Brown (graduated), and C Spencer Main (retired, injury). The 20-year-olds: D Mitchell Chapman, F Dylen McKinley and F J.T. Barnett. The imports: F Filip Vasko (Slovakia) and Henrik Nyberg (Sweden). Key returnees: F Colton Sissons, F Zach Franko, D Damon Severson, D Myles Bell, D Madison Bowey and G Jordon Cooke. New faces: F Ryan Olsen, 18, acquired from Saskatoon in the Shane McColgan deal; goaltender Jackson Whistle, acquired in a trade with Vancouver; defenceman Mitchell Wheaton, 17; McKinley and Barnett, a pair of overage forwards acquired in trades during the pre-season; and three 16-year-old rookies—defenceman Riley Stadel, and forwards Rourke Chartier and Austin Glover. Just notes: The Rockets were hoping centre Spencer Main would fill one of three overage spots, but the 20-year-old North Vancouver native was forced to retire during the pre-season due to re-

curring concussion symptoms. Did you know: D Madison Bowey won a gold medal with Team Canada at the Ivan Hlinka Memorial U18 world championship in Slovakia. The prognosis: One of the youngest teams in the league last season, the Rockets are considerably more experienced across the board in 2012-13. With 15 returnees and a pair of 20-year-old vets acquired in trades, the club will boast more size, grit and game savvy than a year ago. With Damon Severson, Myles Bell, Madison Bowey and Jesse Lees, Kelowna could have one of the league’s more dynamic defensive corps. The question mark is how much offense the Rockets will be able to generate from the forward positions, with a scoring-bycommitee likely to be employed. If Kelowna can find a way to score on a nightly basis, then 35 to 40 wins and a second-place finish in the B.C. Division

KAMLOOPS BLAZERS Last season: 47-20-23, second in Western Conference, first in B.C. Division. Swept Victoria Royals in Round 1 of playoffs before losing in Game 7 of Round 2 to the Portland Winterhawks. The coaches: Head coach Guy Charron (third season, hired mid-season

in 2009-2010 campaign); associate coach Dave Hunchak (second season); assistant coach Ed Patter-

son (second season). Key losses: F Chase Schaber, D Bronson Maschmeyer and F Brandon Herrod, all aged out of junior hockey. D Austin Madaisky, who signed a three-year deal with the Columbus Blue Jackets, would be a key loss, but he might be back in Kamloops, depending on the NHL lockout and whether he catches on with the Springfield Falcons of the American Hockey League.

The 20-year-olds: D Madaisky, F Dylan Willick, F Brendan Ranford and F Jordan DePape. WHL clubs are allowed only three over-age players on the roster. The imports: F Tim Bozon (Switzerland) and D Marek Hrbas (Czech Republic). Key returnees: F Ranford, F Bozon, F Willick, D Hrbas, D Tyler Hansen, D Tyler Bell, D Madaisky (if he is back), G Cole Cheveldave, F J.C. Lipon

and F Colin Smith. New faces: Jordan Thomson might be the Blazersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; most promising new face. The clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s firstround pick in the 2011 bantam draft had an excellent training camp and pre-season. The Blazers acquired F Rob Trzonkowski from Calgary in May. Of interest: Forwards Matt Needham and Cole Ully, both 17, are not listed as key returnees, but they might be exactly that. Josh Connolly of Prince George is the younger brother of Brett, the former Prince George Cougar who plays with the Tampa Bay Lightning. The younger Connolly is a highly skilled blueliner with tremendous offensive upside and will be used on the power play. Did you know: Graduated Blazers Maschmeyer and Schaber joined the St. Francis Xavier menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hockey team in Antigonish, N.S. The prognosis: Kamloops has the necessary tools this season to make a run at the Western Conference championship and challenge for the Ed Chynoweth Cup. The Blazers are deep up front and on the blue-line (especially if Madaisky returns) and Cheveldave looks to be the real deal between the pipes. Expectations in town are higher than they have been in more than a decade. If the Blazers can cope with the pressure and avoid key injuries, look for them to be hanging

around deep in the postseason.

VANCOUVER GIANTS Last season: 40-26-24, second in B.C. division, fourth in the Western conference, lost in six games to the Spokane Chiefs in the first round. General Manager: Scott Bonner Head coach: Don Hay (eighth season, 14th in WHL). Assistants: Glen Hanlon (second season), Yogi Svejkovsky (seventh season). The 20-year-olds: D Wes Vannieuwenhuizen, F Taylor Makin, D Joel Neibrandt. Key returnees: Besides the 20-year-olds, Cain Franson, D David Musil, F Marek Tvrdon, F Dalton Sward. Key losses: F Brendan Gallagher, F Jordan Martinook, F James Henry, G Adam Morrison, D Neil Manning. New faces: D Joel Neibrandt, G Liam Liston, G Tyler Fuhr. Up front: The Giants lose three of their top five point-getters from last season, including 40goal men Brendan Gallagher and Jordan Martinook, who combined

for nearly a third of the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goals. Returning to carry the offensive load are 19-year-olds Marek Tvrdon and Cain Franson. Tvrdon scored 31 goals, 74 points in 60 games last season. On the blue line: Led by newly-appointed captain Wes Vannieuwenhuizen, the Giants have five rearguards back from last season, including NHL prospects David Musil and Brett Kulak. John Neibrandt comes from the Kootenay Ice where he won a WHL championship in 2011. In net: Giants acquired 19-year-old Liam Liston from Lethbridge to assume the starting goaltending duties from the departed Adam Morrison, who won 35 games in 55 appearances last year. Liston has 29 wins in 68 career games with the Hurricanes and Brandon Wheat Kings. Tyler Fuhr, 17, looks to have the back-up role locked down. Prediction: A dip in production without Gallagher, who was a gamebreaker last year. But still a playoff team. Look for the defence to drag the team into one of the last playoff spots in the Western conference.

OC Coyotes hosts Western Washington for fall ball

The Okanagan Coyotes are back on the diamond to resume their fall season this weekend as they play host to Western Washington University for three games at Elks Stadium. The teams will meet Friday at 7 p.m., Saturday at 4 p.m., and Sunday at 11 a.m. It was an aggressive off-season of recruiting by OC head coach Geoff kWhite and assistants Lyall Foran and Jared Johnson. Eleveb players are returning from last season’s t club, making for a large crop of freshman in 201213. White has already concluded that the Coyotes k

will have much improved hitting, will be tighter in the infield, will have good depth behind the plate, and more outfield speed. Returning pitchers Marcus Drewry, Mike Monster, and lefty Zack

Burlon should lead the way, while second-year year catcher Tyler Pentland will direct them to a solid season. All four played in very competitive summer leagues and were able to work on their

games. Although it is pretty early there are a few freshman players who are starting to show they belong – including Andy Scott, an infielder/pitcher from Medicine Hat, Gord Lafontaine an outfielder from Saskatoon, pitchers Kody Rock and Brandon Bergan from Saskatoon and Jody Hannon an infielder from Prince George. Some key graduates from the Okanagan Athletics program (2012 PBL champions), Dillon Kakosche, Dallis Senger, Cody Smith and Graham Drope have also joined the program.

TOFC to host Surrey, Mariners

The Thompson Okanagan Football Club resumes play this weekend in B.C. Soccer’s Premier League with each team playing a pair of home games. On Saturday, the seven regional squads will be in Kamloops to take on Surrey United. t On Sunday, TOFC switches to Kelowna’s Mission and Rutland sportsfields for games against the Magnuson Mariners. Two new teams have been added to the club as rthe U12s join the fall action in preparation for ttheir full season as U13s in the New Year.

Last weekend, TOFC ravelled to the coast to play against Fusion FC of Richmond. The U12 Girls posted a 4-2 loss to Fusion but it was not their skill that was lacking. TOFC 2000’girls caught Fusion by surprise with their great ball control and passing and were up 2-1 at half with goals by Britney Young and a PK goal by Ailie Hayman, both of whom hail from Penticton. Fitness was the deciding factor and the Fusion players were able to take control of the game in the second half putting in three goals for the win. The U13 Boys continued their fine perform-

ances from earlier in the season as they posted a 1-0 win over Fusion. In the first half, Connor Glennon (Vernon) was first to test the Fusion keeper with a free kick on the edge of the box but the shot was saved on the line. Fusion replied with a corner. The ball bounced out to the edge of the box and a strong shot was tipped over the bar by superb keeping from Carter Kletke (Kelowna). TOFC dominated in midfield with help from Kamen Wimbleton (Kelowna) who played his best game of the year. Grayson Perrier came off the bench for his debut

In the second half, T.O.F.C. received strong play by their wide midfield men, and managed to penetrate Fusion’s final third with an impressive array of crosses. Mees Geelkerken (Vernon) won a corner and hit an excellent ball into the box for Mitch Morgan (Kelowna) to head onto Sem Kampman (West Kelowna) but was saved by the keeper The U15 Boys lost 0-1 on a penalty kick due to a questionable hand ball call.

The West Kelowna Warriors will visit the Trail SmokeEaters Friday night in BCHL action.

On Saturday, the Chiefs will return home to meet to Columbia Valley Rockies at Rutland Arena. Puck drop is 7 p.m. The Chiefs are 2-0 and have outscored their opponents 11-1 in the process.

Assistants: Jason Becker (fourth season) and Brent Arsenault (eighth season) Key losses: Overage goalie Drew Owsley was an obvious choice for Team MVP of the 201112 campaign. Owsley played 64 games while back-up Devon Fordyce, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been battling Brett Zarowny for the 2012-13 starterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s position, saw action in 14 contests. Last seasonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s other overagers were F Spencer Asuchak and D Cody Carlson. D Jesse Forsberg, traded to Seattle, played with an edge and his physical play may be missed. The 20-year-olds: F Brock Hirsche, D Dan Gibb and D Dallas Ehrhardt. The import: Latvian defenceman Rinalds Rosinskis. Key returnees: G Fordyce, D Gibb, F Troy Bourke, F Alex Forsberg, F Daulton Siwak, F Chase Witala, F Jordan Tkatch and F Hirsche New faces: A couple of forwards, Jacobs (from Seattle) and Jari Erricson (from the Everett Silvertips) joined the Cougars in deals with other organizations. F Zach Pochiro joins the organization after skating with the Wichita Falls Wildcats of the

North American Hockey League. Watch for: More offensive production. If everything falls into place, this team could see its goals for total increase by as much as 100. That noted, last seasonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s team was the lowest scoring in the 22team WHL, with only 166 goals in 72 games. Did you know: The Prince George Cougarsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; records show that only one player in the franchiseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 18-year history has recorded 100 points in a season. Quinn Hancock, a 1977-born forward, reached the century mark in the 1997-98 season when he collected 54 goals and 58 assists for 112 points. Prognosis: As of Tuesday, the Cougarsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 25-man roster had 11 1995-born players. This team is still young, and as a result, mistakes are going to happen as players learn the game. As long as the back end holds up and the goalies challenge each other, the Cougars should have no problem returning to the playoffs. But they wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be among the conference leaders.

Key losses: After guiding the Royals through the transition from Chilliwack to Victoria, coach-GM Marc Habscheid stepped down in June. Key player losses: F Kevin Sundher, D Hayden Rintoul and F Robin Soudek all graduated. Twenty-year-olds F Mike Forsyth and G Keith Hamilton were released during the preseason. Returning 18-year-olds F Zane Jones and D Kade Pilton were traded, Jones for Alex Gogolev and Pilton for prospects. The 20-year-olds: D Tyler Stahl, F Jamie Crooks, F Alex Gogolev. The imports: F Alex Gogolev, Russia; G Patrik Polivka, Czech Republic. Key returnees: D Tyler Stahl, D Keegan Kanzig, D Jordan Fransoo, F Steven Hodges, F Brandon Magee, Logan Nelson, F Jamie Crooks, New faces: Lots of them. GM Cam Hope and coach Dave Lowry inherited a team of full of assets, but one thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been missing that winning feeling. Already theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve shaved the edges of the team while adding Russian import Alex Gogolev, a premier left-winger in the WHL, and goalie Patrik Polivka. Watch for: Left wingers Gogolev and Crooks to lead a high-powered Royals offence. Crooks should hit 40 goals, if not 50, after potting 37 last year and a hat trick in the playoffs. The two lead a solid top six with Logan Nelson, Brandon Magee, Steven Hodges and a beefed-up Ben Walker. Just notes: Carolina Hurricanesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; prospect Tyler Stahl missed most of last season due to a concussion suffered in the fourth game. It hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t softened Stahl, who starts the season on a six-game suspension for a check to the head against the Kelowna Rockets on Sept. 7. Prediction: Forty wins and a playoff exit in seven games. Last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s win total of 24 was the second lowest in the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history. It will take Lowry all season to rebuild the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chemistry to what he likes.

Minding our manners when riding the bus

T

wo weeks ago, I time travelled back to my predriver’s license years. Technically, I am still 18 years old and legally able to drive a car. But in order to get to and from UBC Okanagan, I have forged a friendship with Kelowna’s transit system, and consequently experienced feelings and frustrations that I have not encountered since I was 15. Let’s face it, taking the bus is not anybody’s ideal. Even in a perfect world, where buses are always on time and the interior temperatures don’t cause you to flood the bus with your sweat, there are still certain unchangeable and unenjoyable aspects of public transit. But many of these difficulties are not unique to taking the bus. Learning how to deal with them will not only make your bus rides more pleasant, but will also help you deal with similar day-to-day situations. The first challenge sometimes occurs the moment you step on the bus—the bus driver. I can understand why

CONNECTING WITH YOUTH

Amber Krogel a bus driver may ask me to dispose of my messy food or take my feet off a seat, but sometimes I just want to tell them that they hurt my feelings and ask them to rephrase their command in a nicer way. But I don’t think that would go over so well. What we often don’t realize, though, is the reality that the driver may have encountered his own difficulties before our entrance on the bus. I happened to overhear a conversation between two bus drivers the other day, as one of them told the other about a regular seven-hour shift he used to have that had no breaks whatsoever. Once you imagine doing the same thing at your own job, it becomes easier to understand why the bus driver may not be in the most cheerful mood.

In the same way, the people we come into contact with in life—whether baristas or customers or friends of friends—all have a story that we do not know about. This is not necessarily an excuse for all types of behaviour, but instead, a reason for each of us to treat others with kindness. I find this principle difficult not only with those who are rude or cranky, but even with those who are simply different from myself. When a large group

of strangers pile into the same bus, there will inevitably be some interesting characters—the guy with headphones that function more like speakers to broadcast his annoying music, the person unknowingly shoving their backpack in your face… the list goes on. Asking for the backpack to be taken off your face is certainly a reasonable request, but when making requests, we should still exert a level of courtesy. And to rephrase a

common saying: “If you don’t have anything nice to say, just listen to your iPod.” Going iPod-less may take more patience, but for myself, it gives me opportunity to catch up on homework and readings. And if I can learn the art of being understanding and kind to others, maybe taking the bus won’t be so bad after all.

Police catch up with purse snatcher

Police have identified a suspect and returned the purse of an elderly woman who had it ripped away from in front of her Tuesday. The Kelowna RCMP received a report of a robbery in the parking lot of Save-On-Foods, located at 3175 Lakeshore Rd., on Sept. 18 at 10:15 a.m. “Apparently, a man grabbed an elderly woman’s purse from her shopping cart and fled the scene on foot. The suspect was chased by witnesses to a nearby apartment complex but he was not apprehended,” said Const. Kris Clark. “Police were later able to identify the suspect as a 29-year-old Kelowna man and also recovered the stolen purse. The elderly woman did not suffer any physical injuries.” Charges are pending.

Virtual tour vision turned into business reality for Kelowna man

I

never stop being amazed with the amount and diversity of talented people there are in our community. Some time back, I met with an interesting and hard working fellow name Elie (Eliecer) Marchante, who held a vision of a virtual tour business. After many months of hard work and determined slogging, Marchante turned his vision into a reality, starting up his impressive online business Virtual British Columbia Tours (vbct.ca). His company provides business owners with a virtual tour technology of their business, allowing potential customers and clients to watch a 360-degree view of the facility. With a click of the computer mouse viewers can â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;tourâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; any Marchante client businessâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;restaurant, hotel, winery, salon, gym, etc. In addition, a company can embed their virtual tour onto their own business website as part of a top-notch marketing tool. Marchanteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s company takes the recently developed â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;street-viewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; concept directly inside the doors of business giving customers a sneak preview of what to expect before physically venturing into the store or facility. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The response by business owners, once they see what I can do to assist them, is heart warming. Virtual Tours takes the potential client or customer into the business from the comfort of their easy chair and home computer,â&#x20AC;? he smiles. Of real note, however, is that very recently, his hard work and resilience paid off. Marchanteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Virtual British Columbia Tours is now part of one of Googleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s project: Google Business Photos. Wow. That is a huge feather in his cap and well deserved. Google recently launched a Business Photos Program in Canada to help businesses attract customers, and went in search of specially trained photographers, of which Marchante is now a member. His generated panoramas of businesses interiors may be seen on Google Search and Google Maps, as well as Google+ Local pages. When potential customers search for a business by name on Google,

Charlie Hodge they will see the images displayed directly on the search results page. Businesses get higher visibility when consumers search on Google maps for a particular type of business in a geographic area, since the local listings are located on a map at the top right of the results page. This is a superb way of displaying your business decor, ambience, and other unique qualities of your business (menus, product selection, and more). The new program is already utilized in some selected cities within various countries including Canada, U.S., Australia, New Zealand, France, Japan, and the United Kingdom. So the new virtual tour business trend is certainly about to take off. Most Kelowna and area businesses can participate in the program.

*** Speaking of amazing talent, make sure you hustle down to the Kelowna Community Theatre tonight (Friday) for the encore performance of One Hit Wonders, performed by Rann Berry and his remarkable group of talented musicians. Berryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Vegaslike show is a wonderful trek down memory lane of musical nostalgia, bringing back to stage a plethora of favourite catchy tunes that owned the airwaves at some point or other during the past 50 years. Berry and clan will play famous songs such as Indiana Wants Me, Seasons in the Sun, and other hit tunes made famous by folks whose names most of us have long forgot. Doors open tonight at 7p.m. with music starting at 8 p.m. Berry is well warmed up and ready to go. I know, because last Saturday, Tez and I spent a delightful night at the Blue Gator listening to him and his band, Random Act. Wow, that was one packed house of music fans. I have never seen the dance floor at the Gator so full for an entire night. Amazing performances by all the musicians (an all-star band in reality) led by the smoking guitar of Mike Jervis, fine bass work of Michael Goc, and

hot sax of Curtis Tulman. What a wonderful night. Gator owner â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Mobyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; had a permanent grin glowing all night. â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘ I am feeling a tad bit like a big ole bear ready to tuck down for the winter. I ate so much food on Saturday (as a hard-working judge) at the Raise the Roof Barbecue for Habitat for Humanity that I could hibernate away the entire winter. Great food, great fun. Well done. Judging delicious food is a tough job but someone has to chew it. â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘â&#x20AC;˘ A hearty â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;hurrayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; to my good friend and former Kelowna city council colleague Graeme James, recently nominated as the B.C. Conservative Party candidate for KelownaLake Country in the next provincial election. James is a great fellow, and as hard working and honest of a gentleman as they come. As I have said in the past, Graeme and I seldom agreed on anything, however, I always respected the passion, sincerity, logic and conviction behind his opinion. His ability to cut through the B.S., find rational or a salient viewpoint, and then hold fast to it impressed me. Not to mention his quick wit, sense of humour and big heart. Go get them.

ENTERTAINMENT Allen to perform new single and old hits in Vernon Kristin Froneman CONTRIBUTOR

It’s been a satellite kind of year for Vernon’s Andrew Allen. While his music has reached both the Canadian and U.S. airwaves, he has had time to see a lot of the country and relax in his own little part of the world. After a busy winter, where he toured the U.S. with Dia Frampton, runner up on the first season of music reality show The Voice, Allen spent a lot of time writing and recording and has just released his latest single, aptly titled Satellite. He is gearing up to play his biggest show yet in his hometown when he kicks off the inaugural

Vernon Community Expo with a concert at the Wesbild Centre Oct. 19. But more on that later. Allen is coming off what he describes as “the best summer ever,” and it, thankfully, included some much needed R&R. “Me and (wife) Julia decided to chill out and not worry about anything. We ended up paddleboarding and enjoying time with friends,” he said. “We spent July in Vernon and August house sitting for friends in Kelowna.” Not one to rest long without his guitar in hand, Allen also found himself travelling around the country to play a few gigs from Vancouver to Toronto, where he opened for Lights as well as Back-

street Boy Nick Carter at the Canadian National Exhibition. “I had just done a show for frosh week in Missouri and flew to Toronto three days before the show…It was great to see some of the sights.” Allen plans to spend more time in Canada touring on the release of Satellite. “The song is different from what I’ve done before. I wrote it to sound quite folky, but the recorded version has this pop sound to it,” he said. “It’s not a sad song. It’s about a relationship where the guy is saying to the girl ‘you are going to be amazing and go to the moon and back, but I have to let you go.’ I feel you can hear the

I was thinking of friends and relationships when I wrote the song.” Allen once again worked with Vancouver producer Ryan Stewart to record Satellite. Stewart, who has made hits for the likes of Carly Rae Jepsen and Victoria Duffield, worked on Allen’s previous single I Want You, as well as his chart topping songs Loving You Tonight and I Wanna Be (Your Christmas). And speaking of Jepsen, known for her über hit Call Me Maybe, Allen has performed with her on a number of occasions. “When she came off Canadian Idol, Ryan thought she sounded good,” said Allen. “He is a big reason for the sound

she has now. He’s also done the same for (Warner Music artist) Laurell and my Christmas song. We work with him for his pop sensibility. He lays down cool beats with the singersongwriter in mind. He’s also this nice guy. He’s a family man, so at 6 p.m. when he says it’s time to go home, it’s time to go home.” Satellite has already been sent out to radio stations across the country, and can be downloaded from iTunes. Asked all the time by his fans on Twitter and Facebook, and by this reporter, when his full-length album will drop, Allen admits he is not entirely sure. “Part of the reason I am releasing Satellite is to build the finances for the album. I also have a new

management team, and (record label) Sony and me are still good friends. They were the ones who sent me to L.A. to write the song.” “I am super excited to have another show lined up here in Vernon, and this time, at the Wesbild supporting an incredible cause,” he said. “Vernon really knows how to get behind one of their own, and I’m forever grateful.” The three-day Vernon Community Expo will feature more than 100 businesses offering information, samples and prizes. Other entertainment is scheduled along with a boot camp on the Sunday by fitness guru Tommy Europe. All those who enter Wesbild Centre will also have the opportunity to make a donation to support the Sun FM Have a Heart Radiothon, which raises money to provide much needed medical equipment for women’s and children’s health services at Vernon Jubilee Hospital. Tickets for the Oct. 19 concert with Allen are $25 for general admission and $28 for floor seating, at www.ticketseller.ca and 250-549-7469. Kristin Froneman is a Black Press reporter with the Vernon Morning Star.

ENTERTAINMENT â&#x2013;ź CD REVIEWS

Echoes from the past and a note from the present BOB DYLAN: TEMPEST (COLUMBIA) It has been an amazing late career rally for Bob Dylan in the last 10 years or so with fabulous albums like Love And Theft and Modern Times, although this new album comes six years after the latter. In the interim, the 71-year-old Dylan released a so-so Christmas album, a soundtrack, and some live archival material but his studio output is still remarkably strong given that Tempest is his 35th studio album. It is a very good release but not quite up to the stuff of the two above mostly because of the final couple of tracks but more on these later. Tempest starts off with the terrific Duquesne Whistle and its rockabilly-lite shuffle where the video caused a minor controversy for its extreme violence. His voice is really showing its age but then again, like Clint Eastwood who seems to cop stranger and stranger voices with each movie in his dotage, maybe Dylan

SOUNDING OFF

Bruce Mitchell is also parlaying his voice for dramatic effect. Here he sounds like a parched cross between Jimmy Durante, Satchmo and Tom Waits but this is particularly effective on the blues numbers like Early Roman Kings where Dylan borrows heavily from Muddy Watersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Rollinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; And Tumblinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; evergreen. My fave rocker has a Rolling Stones-like rootsy swagger on Pay In Blood while Dylan may be getting a tad topical on the ominous up-tempo Narrow Road with its White House that is on fire and lyrics about trickle-down economics and the warning â&#x20AC;&#x153;if I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work up to you, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll surely have to work down to me someday.â&#x20AC;? There are a couple of solid relationship ballads here but there is an un-

easy undercurrent of violence on several of these 10 songs especially with the moody Scarlet Town where the protagonist is living the low life with his â&#x20AC;&#x153;flat chested junkie whore.â&#x20AC;? Tempest is a long album at nearly 70 minutes so the lead off eight tunes are all solid. The title track is a centenary homage to the sinking of the Titanic that has over 40 verses and clocks in at 14 minutes and is probably the longest song of Dylanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s prodigious catalogue. His next longest song is Sad Eyed Lady Of The Lowlands off Blonde On Blondeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;that song took up a whole side of a double vinyl album that few bothered to listen to a second time. The final cut is an homage to his good friend Roll On John (Lennon) that cleverly uses many of Lennonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lyrics and titles in the text but this comes off as something of a novelty song. B

ART GARFUNKEL : THE SINGER (SONY LEGACY) Last year Paul Simon

released a two-album collection of personally handpicked songs from his large catalogue titled Songwriter. His long time singing buddy Garfunkel has also released a handpicked two-CD set but because he wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t much of a songwriter, his collection is dubbed The Singer. There are plenty of Simon And Garfunkel greatest hits collections already on the market so The Singer has only a half dozen S&G hits with the seminal folk pop songs Bridge Over Troubled Water, Scarborough Fair/ Canticle, Kathyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Song, The Sound Of Silence, and April Come She Will. These are enough to set the scene where Garfunkel can spruce up his resumĂŠ because his best work and best songs were mostly recorded with Simon. Garfunkel does admittedly have a beautiful and expressive voice but as a young lout I always thought Art G. was a tad too precious and mawkish especially on golden oldies like I Only Have Eyes For You, Some Enchanted Evening and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve Grown Accustomed To Her Face.

%;LH%RNL; -IH?SNB? 7BIF?9?;L 4BLIOAB

Garfunkelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s biggest solo hit was actually a duet with James Taylor on the teen ballad and The Everly Brothersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; classic Crying In The Rain that is nowhere near as good as the original. But oddly, where Garfunkel seems at his bestâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;as I listen to this retrospective set with perfect hindsightâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;is on the dream pop ballads like 99 Miles From L.A. (with superb lyrics from the recently departed Hal David) and on the near-angelic Two Sleepy People (as written by Hoagy Carmichael). Garfunkel also offers a handsome and breathy take of Jobimâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Brazilian classic Waters Of March while the delicate reading of Percy Sledgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s When A Man Loves A Woman is far better now than I remembered it way back when. There are a couple of meh new songs for the committed fan while Gar-

funkel adds very personalized and sometimes poetic notes to each song. At 34 songs, this is all the Art Garfunkel you will ever need, especially from his solo efforts, in your listening life. B

THE VACCINES: COME OF AGE (COLUMBIA) This is the sophomore album from Londonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s young pop-rock band The Vaccines. Their debut release got some fairly solid notices and I sorta remember hearing it but donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t remember much about it so it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make much of an impact to my ears. But now I gotta go back and re-listen to their debut because I find this new album a solid delight and in spite of the bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name, their music is as infectious as catnip (no bugs). Sharp hooks and ear worms are all over The Vaccines power pop and

folk pop where I hear a touch of Ray Davies (The Kinks) on Aftershave Ocean and Lonely World while a young â&#x20AC;&#x2122;60s Dylan comes to mind on the opening No Hope. The song I Always Knew sounds like a whip smart but unlikely pairing of Buddy Holly with Ian Curtis of Joy Division while there is some hooky Halloween psychobilly on the splendid Ghost Town. Most of these songs would probably be considered a bit lightweight lyrically but there is a dash of humour and a pinch of youthful disaffection that gives this band some traction. Fans will want to know that The Vaccines have been compared favourably to a cross between The Strokes and The Ramones while they recently opened for The Stone Roses. A nice little discovery. B-

PUBLIC NOTICE WRITTEN PUBLIC HEARING PROCESS FORTISBC ALTERNATIVE ENERGY SERVICES INC. Application for a Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity and the Approval of Rate Design and Rates to Provide Thermal Energy Services to Customers in the Kelowna City Centre THE APPLICATION On August 30, 2012, FortisBC Alternative Energy Services Inc. (FAES) applied to the British Columbia Utilities Commission (Commission) for a Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity (CPCN) to construct and operate the Kelowna District Energy System (KDES), which will provide thermal energy service for heating to buildings in the Kelowna City Centre, and for approval of the proposed rate design and rates that will be used to recover the cost of service from customers of the KDES. FAES has entered into agreements with the City of Kelowna (the City) to construct, own, operate, and maintain the KDES for buildings in the City Centre (the Project) subject to Commission approval. Initially, the KDES will serve 16 existing buildings and will expand to serve a total of 28 buildings at the Project’s completion date in 2026. The KDES will capture waste heat from the Tolko Industries Ltd. sawmill in downtown Kelowna and distribute hot water through a network of distribution piping. High-efficiency natural gas boilers will provide peak demand and back-up energy. The Project is driven by the City’s objective to reduce its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 33 percent (from 2007 levels) by 2020 and contributes to the City’s long-term community energy planning needs by significantly reducing GHG emissions for the KDES buildings by as much as 80 percent. The Commission, by the province of British Columbia and through the Utilities Commission Act, has the authority to approve an application for a Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity to construct and operate a public utility plant or system in the province and to approve rates as just, fair and non-discriminatory. THE REGULATORY PROCESS Commission Order G-123-12 establishes a Regulatory Timetable for the review of the Application by way of a Written Public Hearing. The detailed Regulatory Timetable can be reviewed on the Commission’s website at www. bcuc.com under Current Applications.

PUBLIC INSPECTION OF THE APPLICATION This Application and supporting material is available on the FortisBC website at www.fortisbc.com under Regulatory Affairs for the Gas Utility (under Gas BCUC Submissions/Lower Mainland-Squamish-Interior/Thermal Energy Services) and on the Commission’s website at www.bcuc.com. All submissions and/or correspondence received from active participants or the general public relating to the Application will be placed on the public record and posted to the Commission’s website. REGISTERING TO PARTICIPATE Persons who wish to actively participate in this proceeding should register as Interveners with the Commission in writing by Tuesday, September 25, 2012, and state the nature of their interest in the Application.

CHICHEN ITZA ARCHEOLOGICAL ZONE is one of the best-known pyramids but is off limits for climbing.

History comes alive in Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula Christopher Reynolds CONTRIBUTOR

YUCATAN PENINSULA, Mexico—In May I flew to Merida, Yucatan’s capital, about 500 miles south of New Orleans. By noon on the first full day I was clinging to the steeply pitched steps of the Great Temple of Uxmal, about 50 miles south of Merida, about 100 feet above ground, incalculably far from the 21st century. Ever since the Mexican drug-war killings began to escalate in late 2006, I’ve been visiting

the country less and choosing spots more carefully. But the Yucatan Peninsula was an easy call. One of the safest and most rewarding places in Mexico these days is the same steamy, lizardridden Maya stamping ground where ritual sacrifice was once business as usual, where the alleged apocalypse—the end of the Maya calendar—is barely 100 shopping days away. From my perch at the temple’s highest point, a horizon of green treetops spread before me, interrupted only by jutting stone marvels such as

AIR & HOTEL

the Pyramid of the Magician, the Nunnery Quadrangle and the stately House of the Governor. Uxmal is not Yucatan’s marquee attraction. That would be the now-unclimbable pyramid at Chichen Itza about 120 miles east. But Yucatan is full of wonders that allow better access and draw smaller crowds than Chichen Itza. If you want a workout, a few subterranean thrills and a glimpse of what North American civilization looked like before and just after the Spaniards got here, it’s a good place to start. The Uxmal complex, younger than Egypt’s

Nowadays at Uxmal, there’s a nighttime light show and a handful of hotels within walking distance.

At its peak Uxmal housed perhaps 25,000 Mayas ing the creepiness of the ruins’ mascots: the iguanas, which race bow-

legged across the grass, climbing ancient steps with eerie agility. Lock eyes with an iguana long enough and

an apocalypse begins to seem inevitable. But then look away, and another ruin demands climbing. Or a set of stairs will

lead you to a cool, blue cenote—sinkholes and water-filled underground caverns that are scattered all over the peninsula.

To give scenes like that my full attention, I didn’t bother with Cancun, the tourist magnet 200 miles east, or the several Yucatan haciendas that have been converted into restaurants and luxury hotels. In fact, I never strayed more than 150 miles from Merida. At Kabah, just down the road from Uxmal,

hundreds of loose stones are laid out like laundry in need of sorting, and one long wall (known as the Codz Poop) is crowded with bug-eyed, long-nosed stone faces carved to honor the rain god Chac. At Labna, an ancient gate leads nowhere special but might be the most graceful, haunting Maya portal

still standing. At Ticul, I had hot chocolate. Not by choice but because the EcoMuseo del Cacao, opened in 2011, includes a hot chocolate-making demonstration among its many exhibits. (There was also a human skeleton and some sentences about the Maya’s ritual sacrifices.) The temperature must have been 95 degrees outside—which is why many people visit in winter. But the cook so graciously offered the steaming cup, I had to say yes. At Cuzama, about 30 miles southeast of Merida, I paid a man about 250 pesos (about $20) to take me on a bone-jarring ride aboard a horse-drawn cart that rolls on narrow-gauge railroad tracks. The route runs through a henequen plantation (where fiber for rope was cultivated), but the real attraction is below ground: three cenotes. The first was Chelentun (easy access, with stairs and a handrail), followed by Bolonchoojol (a rabbit-hole entrance with a 25-foot ladder) and Chansinic’che (steep stairs, narrow squeeze). At each, you can climb down, dive and swim beneath the stalactites, surrounded by tree roots and darting little fish, in the cool waters of a slowmoving subterranean river. Shafts of filtered sunlight illuminate the blue waters. Voices bounce crazily off the walls. There are thousands

of these places in Yucatan, some open air, some accessible only by a dark descent on a long ladder, dozens outfitted for easy visitor access. The only problem is that after you’ve explored a few, if you ever venture to Capri, you’ll never understand all the fuss over its Blue Grotto. The next day, I headed to Coba, another underappreciated but sprawling set of ruins about 135 miles east of Merida in the state of Quintana Roo. The archaeological site is so vast that tourists rent bikes to get from spot to spot. With the help of a heavy rope, most climb to the top of Nohoch Mul, a pyramid with 120 steep steps. The view was cinematic—the most remarkable of my trip because the landscape is otherwise so flat and the foliage below so thick. Throughout these various ascents and descents, Mexico’s most notorious 21st century peril— the drug war—seemed far away. And statistics suggest that it is. In the Mexican newspaper Reforma’s tally of drug-war killings, Yucatan logged just two such

deaths in 2011—the lowest figure among all 31 Mexican states. The U.S. State Department’s most recent Travel Warning on Mexico (issued in February) bristles with borderstate cautions and alarming numbers, including the 47,515 drug-war deaths nationwide as of September 2011. But the State Department’s experts have reported no such troubles in Yucatan. That peace of mind gave me the luxury of more daydreaming about the Mayas, who drew water from cenotes and sculpted their gods into decorative patterns on buildings. The Maya created a written language and left scores of manuscripts, most of which the Spanish burned. They devised epic ballgames that sometimes ended with the ritual sacrifice of a player. Aristocrats wore jade inlays in their teeth. Their empire included the neighboring states of Campeche, Chiapas and Quintana Roo, along with parts of Belize, Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras. Yet centuries before the Spanish conquistadors got anywhere near here, their empire collapsed and the people scattered to small agricul-

tural settlements. As a result, few outsiders paid much attention to the Maya until the late 1830s and early 1840s, when explorers such as John L. Stephens and artist Frederick Catherwood spent long expeditions describing and sketching vine-strangled structures throughout the peninsula. Since then, Maya imagery has compelled all sorts of artists and designers, including Frank Lloyd Wright, who drew inspiration from Uxmal; Mel Gibson, who directed the movie “Apocalypto” in 2006; and the makers of the 2009 disaster film “2012.” (For a more factual visual take on the contemporary Maya, check out the black-and-white photographs of Macduff Everton in 2012’s “The Modern Maya” or the super-saturated color shots of Jeffrey Becom in “Maya Color,” published in 1997.) So why did the Maya fall? Deforestation, drought and wars against neighbors have been blamed. In his 2005 bestseller “Collapse,” University of California, Los Angeles geography professor Jared Diamond cites “kings who sought to outdo each other with

more and more impressive temples, covered with thicker and thicker plaster—reminiscent in turn of the extravagant conspicuous consumption by modern American CEOs.” Before things went south, the Maya astron-

omers calculated a longterm calendar and forecast that a 5,125-year era in human history would come to an end on Dec. 21, 2012. And then? Like so many fortunetellers and economists before and

since, the Maya were vague on details. For the 21st century doomsday industry, of course, this was perfect. Now we have books, movies, souvenirs and Tshirts tied to Dec. 21. Even though almost nobody be-

lieves it, the idea of extinction evidently sells. Mayaland Resorts was charging less than $200 a night at its lodges at Uxmal and Chichen Itza in May, but this December, See Yucatan A38

Chevrolet Malibu more stylish for 2013 Lorne Drury

in 2007 as a 2008 model and earned 40-plus industry awards including North American Car of the Year. For 2013, the Malibu will come with a fourcylinder strategy only. The base engine is an allnew Ecotec 2.5-litre fourcylinder. A turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder will be a late arrival this fall, so we didn’t get a chance to test one on the East Coast launch, but we did get to try the Malibu ECO, a 2.4-litre four-cylinder linked to the e-Assist system used on the Buick LaCrosse and Buick Regal. As with the outgoing model, the new Malibu is based on the same Epsilon II platform as the LaCrosse. Chassis tuning is

The Chevrolet Malibu has been around on and off since 1964 and has sold more than 8.5 million units worldwide during a successful 35-year run. That’s a pretty solid sales record and one that is sure to grow with the launch of an all-new 2013 model—the first global mid-size car for Chevrolet. The new Malibu will be sold in 100 markets on six continents and represents an important vehicle for the bow-tie brand. In Canada, the mid-size segment represents 20 per cent of the market and the Malibu is again expected to appeal mainly to families and fleet customers. At least that was the case with the previous generation, which bowed

MOTORING Unlike a hybrid, the car never runs on battery alone, so this is referred to in the industry as a ‘mild hybrid.’ The electric-assist adds a turbo-like boost in passing situations, providing the ECO with a 0-96 km/h time of about nine

seconds. The battery sits behind the right rear seat and does cut into trunk space on that model. A small price to pay, though, for the savings at the gas pumps. To get the 2.0-litre turbo model, buyers will

have to shell out for the top-end LTZ trim. The most powerful Malibu will offer 259 hp and 260 lb/ft of torque, all the while providing 20 per cent better fuel economy 10.1/6.6/8.5) than the previous Malibu V6.

All trims except the LS get the rear camera, a most-welcome feature in my books. All in all, the Malibu is a nice ride and should be a solid contender in what

Malibu gets European tuning derived from the European Car of the Year, the Opel Insignia so the new Malibu has great DNA from the get-go. Production has begun at the Fairfax, Va. and Detroit Hamtramck plants and the car is only sale now, starting at $24,995 for the LS model. Styling isn’t a great departure from the outgoing model, yet this is the most aerodynamic Chevy midsize ever with a coefficient of drag of 0.29. The new look gives the car a more planted, sporty stance with 16, 17, 18 or 19-inch wheels available, depending upon the trim level. There’s no doubt it’s a Chevrolet with the signature dual port grille with Chevy bow-tie insignia, while the rear fascia and taillamps are Camaro-inspired, according to General Motors. This is the quietest Malibu ever, thanks in part to an enhanced body structure with a 20 per cent improvement in rear torsional stiffness over the current Malibu. All models get new ZF Rack electric power steering along with wider wheels. GM packs a lot into the 2013 Malibu with 10 standard airbags, like the Cruze, and available lane departure/forward collision warning and rear camera systems. The car has more cargo volume than before with 463 litres of trunk space, up 34 litres from 2012. There is also improved front and rear shoulder room and front and rear hip room with 110 litres of increased interior space. The cabin of the Malibu features the Chevro-

let signature wrap-around dual cockpit design, again with a Camaro-inspired gauge cluster. Over all, the cabin is much improved with a decidedly more upscale look including the use of much more soft touch materials. Among the neat touches is a six-inch deep hidden storage compartment behind the radio display. Ice blue ambient interior lighting adds a classy touch for nighttime driving. Suspension is MacPherson struts up front with a multi-link setup in the rear. Four-wheel disc brakes with ABS are standard as is a six-speed automatic transmission. A choice of 16, 17, 18 and 19-inch wheels is available depending upon the trim. Trim levels available in Canada are the LS ($24,995), 1LT ($25,325) 1LT ECO ($27, 940), 2LT ($27,915) 2LT ECO ($29,160) and LTZ ($32,540). We first drove a 2LT with the 2.5-litre DOHC engine. Featuring options like the leather package with heated seats ($1,135), sunroof ($1,195), and electronics/entertainment package $1,115), this vehicle priced out at $33,180 including the $1,500 freight and PDI. It was quiet and

smooth, handled well on some of the rougher, pothole-filled coastal roads on Cape Breton and exhibited decent acceleration (0-96 km/h in 7.8 seconds, according to GM) with its 197 hp and 191 lb/ft of torque. Fuel consumption for this engine is rated at 9.4/5.9/7.8 L/100 km city/ hwy/combined.. GM has softened out the suspension on the Malibu from the European version to suit North American tastes, but the car is far from removed from the ‘floaty’ feeling we used to get in big Chevys and Buicks of the past. In the afternoon, we sampled a Malibu ECO 2LT. It also was well-optioned with $4,205 in addons, bringing the as-tested price to a hefty $34,945. GM says this is the most fuel-efficient Malibu ever with “hybrid-like fuel efficiency for non-hybrid like price.” The eAssist has an aircooled lithium-ion battery that will provide up to 15 hp of electric power. The system also has regenerative braking, start stop technology and an active shutter system in the lower grille to aid engine efficiency. Four underbody panels also add to aerodynamics. All this adds up to fuel consumption ratings of 8.1 city/ 5.3 hwy/6.9 combined.

MOTORING ▼ HARLEY-DAVIDSON

Suck in your gut and be one with the Fat Boy Rob Beintema CONTRIBUTOR

“What bike are you picking up today?” my wife Mary’s voice came out of the kitchen. “Uh, a Harley,” I answered. “What kind of Harley?” she asked. Oh, here we go, I thought. “Umm, well, it’s a, uh, Fat Boy.” Cue the giggling. Personally, I don’t think the model choice reflects on me at all. And, sheesh, I already went through this two years ago with a Fat Bob test. But, at that point, all you can do is suck your belly in a bit more and stalk off with as much remaining dignity as you can muster. The Fat Boy is a member of the Softail family and its wide and chunky lines have become synonymous with a kind of elemental cruising ethos, a macho style best emphasized when it was chosen as Arnold Schwarzenegger’s ride in Terminator 2. Tested here is an evolution of that original the Fat Boy Lo, a lowered and customized derivation that was first introduced a couple of years ago.

Now, I may protest that I’m not an actual “fat boy” but at 6-foot-3 and 220 lb (or thereabouts), I am a big boy, so, this bike might not seem a natural fit at first. The dropped suspension lowers the seat height 690 mm (27.2”) to 670 mm (26.3”), squatting down to barely two feet off the ground when I’m planted in the saddle. That’s the lowest seat height of any stock Harley-Davidson model. But while it’s a good fit for smaller riders, bigger boys and girls should find enough room in the ergonomic triangle between the seat, grips and footforward pegs. And the Fat Boy Lo brings a lot of other model-specific traits to the party; features that are not available in the regular Fat Boy, namely a darker, slammed appearance complemented by a fat, leather-strapped tank, black bullet hole wheels with wide tires, a denim black frame, and blackedout engine bits with satin chrome highlights instead of polished chrome. The Fat Boy Lo’s standard glossy Vivid Black choice is augmented with optional colours that include Big Blue Pearl and Brilliant Silver Pearl, but

BUILDING on the Fat Boy legacy, the 2012 Fat Boy Lo drops the suspension an inch closer to the ground and brings a darker, slammed appear-

ance to the world of boulevard cruisers. As tested here, in flat Denim Black, the Fat Boy Lo oozes attitude with an upgraded 103B V-Twin engine, fat rubber on black bullet hole wheels and blacked-out engine and chassis components contrasted by satin chrome finishes.

j this tester came dipped in Black Denim, a headturning, matte black finish that suits the bike’s

chunky muscularity to a tee. Retro-style, winged satin chrome H-D side badges make for a nice

touch on the tank. Other darkened style cues include flat-black exhaust shields over the satin

chrome shotgun exhaust pipes, gloss black halfmoon footboards. Even the mirrors and headlamp

are blacked-out. Wide, beach-style bars have become synonymous with the Fat Boy style and a new set of low profile, 1.25-inch internally-wired handlebars were introduced for 2012 with a reduced reach for more comfort and control. Also new for 2012 was an upgrade to the bigger, air-cooled Twin Cam 103 Harley-Davidson engine, a motor that delivers more torque, crisp fuel-injected response and a lovely note singing through the pipes. This engine, mated to the Six-Speed Cruise Drive transmission, is the perfect next step up the power ladder. As the Harley literature says, “evolved, yet carrying on the legacy of the Flathead, Knucklehead, Panhead, Shovelhead, Evolution, Twin Cam 88 and Twin Cam 96 engines that came before.” One innovation worth noting is an Engine Idle Temperature Management Strategy (EITMS) feature that automatically cuts “fuel and fire” from the rear cylinder when idling, which helps reduce engine heat felt by rider and passenger. It’s an optional feature can be turned on by your dealer.

THE VIEW FORWARD provides new wide, internally wired handlebars and a big bowl headlamp.

Honda aims to take the Accord back up popularity charts Lorne Drury CONTRIBUTOR

For years, the Honda Accord was at or near the top of the sales charts in the Canadian mid-size car segment. But in recent times, the Accord’s popularity has fallen off with newcomers like the Koreanbuilt Hyundai Sonata and Kia Optima moving up to challenge the Toyota Camry, Ford Fusion, Chrysler 200 and Nissan Altima. t In fact, at the midway mark of the 2012 calendar year, Accord sales sat at just 4,231 units, compared with 11,708 for the segment-leading Camry. The mid-size segment is an extremely competitive area of the market that accounts for about 20 per cent of all car sales in Canada. Honda hopes to regain a larger market share in this segment with the release 2013 Accord sedan later in September. A coupe version of the Accord follows in November. The Accord is one of the three “pillars” of the Honda lineup along with the Civic and CR-V. Combined, these three vehicles account for 80 per cent of rall Honda sales in Canada.

So, success with the 2013 Accord is crucial for Honda, which has been building the Accord uninterrupted for 37 years. The Accord was the first Japanese car to be built in North America. This ninth generation Accord will also be built in North America and arrive in three forms—sedan, coupe and plug-in hybrid, with the hybrid about a year or so away from going on sale. Honda says the 2013 Accord has the roomiest cabin in the segment with more rear legroom than ever before, yet it is 90 mm shorter than the outgoing car. Cargo volume jumps to 447 litres, up 50 litres from the 2012 model. Since the competition has ramped things up styling-wise, Honda had to do likewise with the Accord and the result is a bit sportier look than before. It doesn’t have the soft lines of the Sonata or Optima, but Honda says this is the most sculpted Accord ever and it lives up to several important design concepts—it has good visibility, exhibits sophistication and refinement and offers good value for See Honda B8

The spec sheet claims a combined fuel economy rating of 5.6L/100km. My real world results were in the same ballpark, giving the bike a potential range of nearly 340 km from a

full 18.9-litre tank of gas. Riding the Fat Boy Lo is a pleasure. We can argue about Harley’s individual signal switches but every other manufacturer in the world needs to attend a Harley-Davidson seminar on how to build

a self-cancelling system that actually works. The six-speed tranny snicks smoothly through the gears with a standard heel-and-toe shifter. The bike is not exactly a lightweight but its maneuverability belies its bulk.

It tracks well through the corners and the combined efforts of the Softail suspension and fat donut tires helps smooth country bumps and long highway stretches. Anti-lock brakes have been added to a Security Package that in-

cludes the H-D Smart Security System option with keyless ignition. The factory installed next-generation security system comes with a hands-free fob that automatically arms and disarms the vehicle electron-

ic security functions as you approach and walk away from the bike. The rider’s view forward takes in the wide handlebars, the big bowl headlamp and a simple, yet beautifully ergonomic tank-mounted electronic speedometer. Although there’s no classic tach, the rider can read rpms and gear selection on a digital display that can also scroll through settings showing odometer, dual tripmeters, and clock. There’s a handy six-speed indicator that lights up with a little green “6” when you’re in top gear, along with a fuel gauge with low fuel warning light and countdown feature, low oil pressure indicator light, engine diagnostics readout and other LED indicators. This 2012 Fat Boy Lo was tested just before newer models arrived, but the 2013 models carry over relatively unchanged, except for a price bump of a couple of hundred bucks and a few new colours. Although, personally, I still think the Black Denim model is the pick of the litter. Having said that though, the 2013 Fat Boy Lo does offer an interesting, new two-tone anniversary version done in Vintage Bronze and Black. It’s an intriguing colour combination that,

hmm, might require further testing . . .

the money. However, the overall design stays true to the Accord roots and will not provide the excitement of some other contenders in the mid-size category. Fierce competition has forced manufacturers to add content and lower prices in recent years and the Accord is no different. For 2013, the LX model replaces last year’s SE and it offers $3,500 of added value at a lower price. Trim levels for the 2013 Accord sedan include LX, EX-L, EX-L V6, Sport, Touring and Touring V6, while the Accord coupe comes in EX, EX-L Navi and EX-L V6 Navi. The Accord Plug-In Hybrid (PHEV) sedan will be launched sometime next year as a 2014 model, followed by a twomotor hybrid based on the same power train architecture.

Power for the base Accord comes from a brand new direct injection 2.4-litre inline i-VTEC engine that features an eight per cent bump in horsepower to 185, up from 177 in the 2012 model. Torque is also up considerably to

181 lb/ft from 161. The Sport model has the same engine, but features a special exhaust system with larger diameter tubing that helps gen-

MOTORING

Fuel efficiency, performance improve soft touch materials, better seats and more overall interior space. Drivers and passengers alike will find a quieter cabin with much less wind and road noise evident. The ride and handling are improved as well, thanks in part to suspension changes. For example, MacPherson struts replace the previous Accordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s double wishbone setup in the front, reducing weight as well as noise, vibration and harshness within the cabin. The new Accord is seven per cent more aerodynamic than the outgoing model and that combined with the use of additional lighter weight high-strength steel helps with fuel economy and handling. I had a chance to drive two versions of the Accord sedanâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;an EX-L V6 and a Touring model with the four-cylinder engine and CVT transmission. For obvious rea-

Three transmissions are offered for 2013â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a continuously variable transmission (CVT) for the four-cylinder models, a six-speed automatic for the V6 engines and a sixspeed manual for the fourcylinder. With these new power trains, the Accord becomes the first vehicle to employ Hondaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new Earth Dreams technologyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;dedicated to enhancing fuel efficiency and improving performance. V6 models with automatic transmission get variable cylinder management, which involves switching from six cylinders to three when demand for power is reduced, such as in highway cruising. Inside, the Accord has been upgraded considerably with much more

What she saw was discount price listings for new cars at various car dealerships across B.C. and Alberta. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was interesting to me because I had not seen that beforeâ&#x20AC;Śit gave me some peace of mind going into a dealership, took some of the uncertainty out of itâ&#x20AC;Śitâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one more tool in the tool box for a consumer.â&#x20AC;? Nicholson ended up buying a new BMW X1 at the Kelowna BMW dealership. Rick Balkan, the founder and chief executive officer of www.newcarselloff.com, says Nicholsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s consumer experience illustrates how his website can empower car buyers to find the best deals. At the same time, dealerships posting new cars on the site give themselves an opportunity to reach a larger marketplace and get languishing car or truck models off their lots

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;

IT GAVE ME SOME PEACE OF MIND GOING INTO A DEALERSHIP, TOOK SOME OF THE UNCERTAINTY OUT OF ITâ&#x20AC;ŚITâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S ONE MORE TOOL IN THE TOOL BOX FOR A CONSUMER. Trina Nicholson, consumer

to create room for new product. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We looked and looked before starting up our website, but we could not find an exact replica of what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing anywhere else,â&#x20AC;? Balkan said. The unique driver, he says, is their website only deals with new cars, where the risk for the buyer is reduced compared to buying a used car. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whether you buy a brand new car in Kelowna or in Vancouver, the car itself and the warranty coverage that comes with it

doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t change,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You know what youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re getting.â&#x20AC;? Balkan launched www.newcarselloff.com on March 1, debuting it to car dealerships and consumers at the Edmonton auto show. Balkan said the site now has 360 participating dealerships, and is about to begin actively selling to dealerships in Saskatchewan and Manitoba. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our goal is to be all the way to Newfoundland a year from nowâ&#x20AC;Śand then we can start looking at expanding to the U.S.,â&#x20AC;? Balkan said. Balkan, who has been involved in the car selling business for 25 years, says his website business concept is a reflection of how the Internet has changed the way cars are marketed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the old days, car dealers didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really advertise outside of their own market areas. But with the Internet, all that has changed,â&#x20AC;? he said.

“And the auto industry is looking more at ways to directly access buyers as opposed to the traditional spray and pray advertising.” His website offers visitors actual photos of the vehicle and relevant feature equipment listings, buyer rebates and incentives, and bottom line pricing at three per cent or less above the invoice value. Balkan said their ontline business start-up model is a typical refrain from past website success stories—he and all their sales and support staff work out of their homes across two provinces. “I picked Kelowna because that is where I live, and I want to work where I live at least at this point. There is no need for all of us to be sitting in an office. We communicate with our sales staff on Google Talk and with virtual sales meetings monthly. You don’t need to have an ofrfice to start a new business. It’s a new world.” r Anthony Lunelli, sales tmanager of Anthony’s tSubaru in Kelowna, said Balkan’s online business model reflects the changing trends on the auto sales industry. “Five to eight years ago, 95 per cent of our sales were to local buyers. Today, it’s probably about 70 per cent local,” Lunelli said. “For us, we see this website as a good way to

sell extra stock on our car lot that hasn’t sold.” Lunelli says while www.newcarselloff.com has generated some traffic to their dealership, he admits there are always pros and cons about discounting, about devaluing product to compete with outside car dealers because it gives consumers more ammunition to drive a harder bargain. “But at the end of the day, if you have a new car that hasn’t sold for whatever reason—not a popular model for this market or it has a weird colour— this is a good way to expose the car to other buyers to help move it off the lot,” Lunelli said. Balkan says while is website is a new tool for both car dealers and buyers, he says closing the deal still remains an aspect of the car sales industry that won’t change. “Car sales people are resilient and will find different ways to make websites like ours work for them,” he says. “We believe in transparency for both the consumer and the dealer through the information services we offer.” As for consumers, a website like www.newcarselloff.com is another resource to benefit from, says Nicholson. “As consumers we are getting more savvy and more sophisticated than we used to be,” she said. “And for me, it just gave us some peace of mind.”

Anniversaries

ENRIGHT, Philip Anthony May 4, 1959 – September 16, 2012

It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our brother, Phil. He was a free spirit and a lover of nature. Please think of Phil ever riding the beautiful sun light highway on his Harley, and always looking for the biggest fish. Think of his smile, joking humour, kind heart, and soft soul. Give the next biker riding by the wave in honor of his memory. Philip was predeceased by his loving parents, Betty, who was taken too soon in life, and Oswald, who was able to share in Phil’s adult life with him. Phil leaves to mourn his estranged daughter Meadow; his brothers Chistopher and Stephen; his sister Debra (John); his nephews: Marc, Jordan, and Matthew; his nieces Alexandra and Savannah, and many cousins and other relatives in Quebec, along with many good friends in B.C. The world will be a sadder place without you Phil. Take the high road Phil. God’s speed. We will miss you always. The family will be taking Phil home to Quebec so to be laid to rest with his parents.

NESTIBO, HAROLD JUNIOR Harold was born April 7, 1929 on the home farm in Goodlands, MB and passed away in the Kelowna General Hospital on September 15, 2012 at the age of 83. He was predeceased by his wife Audrey in April 1998. In October 1999 he married Iona Weiler of Kelowna, BC where they resided for the next 13 years. He will be greatly missed by family and friends. A memorial celebrating Harold’s life will be held at 11:00am on September 22, at Emmanuel Church, 2600 Hebert Rd. in West Kelowna. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Fe Viva World Missions www.feviva.org. The family would like to thank the staff of Chatsworth and the KGH for their excellent care and kindness to Harold. Condolences may be sent to the family by visiting www.springfieldfuneralhome.com, 250-860-7077.

LEENHOUTS, PETER Of Kelowna, BC, passed away on September 18, 2012 of injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident on the Sunshine Coast. He is survived by his wife, Jennifer; daughter, Rebecca; son, Adrian; siblings, Adriana, George, Georgia, Ken, Robert (Bob), Laura and their spouses and children. He was predeceased by his parents, Pieter and Adriana Leenhouts. Peter was born on August 20, 1956, in Chatham, ON, and grew up in Wallaceburg, ON. His home for the last 27 years has been Kelowna. What he loved most in life was his family and his passion was anything with a motor –his Harley, and his Landcruiser. Peter had many exceptional talents, with the intelligence to create and construct many unique projects. These included modified four wheelers, motorcycles, and equipment. Many of his family and friends relied upon him to find solutions to their mechanical dilemmas. In his business and as an employee, he had the ability to draft an idea, create it, and had the persistence to make it work. A memorial gathering will be held on Saturday, September 22, 2012 from 2pm to 6pm at 8 Mile Ranch Heartland 5983 Highway 33 East, Kelowna BC, V1P 1H8. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Interior BC Chapter of the Association for Injured Motorcyclists. Arrangements in care of Everden Rust Funeral Services, (250) 860-6440.

NOTICE TO THE LANDOWNERS IN THE SOUTH EAST KELOWNA IRRIGATION DISTRICT BOUNDARY Notice of Alternative Approval Process Opportunity The South East Kelowna Irrigation District (SEKID) intends to pass Borrowing Bylaw # 657 for the purpose of borrowing $15.3 million to fund improvements to the water system. The Water Quality Improvement Project will develop a separate domestic groundwater supply system in order to improve the quality of water delivered to all domestic connections within the South East Kelowna Irrigation District and to ensure Interior Health Authority compliance. The project will involve the separation of the domestic and agricultural supply to all customers. Higher quality well water will be used for domestic use and the existing surface water supply will continue to be used for irrigating larger parcels in the rural areas of the district. These properties will have two water connections; an irrigation service and a domestic water connection. The project includes the addition of two wells. Further details about the project are available on-line at www.sekid.ca. The Alternative Approval Process Opportunity is only for those who are opposed to this action and SEKID may only proceed if it does not receive landowner responses against this action signed by at least 10% of the landowners in the South East Kelowna Irrigation District boundary area. Alternative Approval Elector Response Forms will be accepted only if they are in the form established by the South East Kelowna Irrigation District. The forms are available at the ofďŹ ce of the South East Kelowna Irrigation District at 3235 Gulley Road, Kelowna, BC beginning September 24, 2012 or online at www.sekid.ca. Alternative Approval Elector Response Forms must be submitted to the General Manager, South East Kelowna Irrigation District, PO Box 28064, RPO E Kelowna, Kelowna BC VIW 4A6 or at the District ofďŹ ce at 3235 Gulley Road Kelowna, BC.

Fairy garden designs recreate magic of childhood Susan Durisek CONTRIBUTOR

There is a sort of magic that happens in fairy gardens, those miniature landscapes meant to inspire tiny mythical creatures to visit your yard. Wilson Nurseries in Frankfort, Ky., regularly hosts fairy-garden workshops, where the air is often abuzz with an excited fluttering to and fro, as garden revelers gather building blocks like moss, pastel pebbles and shiny ceramic mushrooms to assemble tiny masterpieces. Bright flashes of sparkling glitter, said to help welcome fairies, and suncatching glass beads, like shimmering dew drops, add a glow. The muted hum of conversation and cheery chatter can be heard as the gardeners go about the task of creating fern- and fantasy-filled container gardens. Even if you’re skeptical about the existence of fairies, it’s hard to deny the obvious joy shared by these garden makers as they are gently guided in

the art and craft of assembling a small sprite habitat to take home. On a Saturday, grandparents and parents with children, as well as longtime friends and neighbors, meet for two hours under a tent inside the Wilson greenhouses where work tables and supply benches are assembled. Wilson’s organizer and instructor for these events, Teresa Abell, tells of an interesting phenomenon that happens as fairy gardens are made. “People will start out not talking at all,” she says, “yet by the time they leave, they have gotten to know each other, are having a lot of conversations and have made new friends.” They share ideas, supplies and stories about just why they have come to create a fairy garden. Abell, who has been with Wilson Nurseries for eight years, began stocking fairy supplies about three years ago after encountering fairy culture at a wholesale market in Atlanta. The idea of holding

CONTRIBUTOR

FAIRY GARDEN workshop coordinator Teresa Abell helped fasten a fairy to the top of a small metal arbor . workshops occurred to her as she was putting together a greenhouse display. It was a natural fit. “I love gardens, and I love working with peo-

ple,” she says. The idea caught on, and each of Wilson’s dozen or more fairy garden events over the past year has sold out. In addition

to the monthly scheduled workshops, groups of 10 to 20 people can request private events from June until March. Each participant, “from ages 4 to over 70,” Abell says, finds his or her own niche. Container gardens, which can be grown indoors as well as outside in warmer months, offer accessibility to older adults with limited mobility or to those who are living in a retirement community or nursing home. The charm of fairy dust also has great appeal for children. Creating a special miniature garden is an easy way to begin growing a green thumb. Abell has many participants who start out knowing nothing about gardening, but in two hours, she says, “have developed a passion for it.” Connie Hicks, who helps with the workshops, adds, “It’s fun. You get to feel like a kid—along with everybody else.” The workshop’s $35 fee includes a kit with a container, potting medium, three plants, mulch,

pathway stones and a miniature metal archway and birdbath, as well as instruction and care. The fee is per fairy garden; it can be shared by a pair or group of participants. Collectibles—used marbles and dollhouse furniture, twigs and acorns, anything that would fit well into a miniature landscape—can also be brought from home. One workshop participant, Susie Oder, brought a small stone pre-Columbian artifact from her stepfather’s legacy of miniatures to set in her garden as a remembrance. Extras like hypertufa English cottages, glazed

ceramic mushrooms and an assortment of smallscale benches, tools and seasonal decorations can be purchased at Wilson. Workshop participant Virginia Lyle, 8, felt the fairy power. She was intently focused on designing her second fairy garden, paving a meandering path she had created with small pebbles in pastel hues and tucking in teensy-leaved plants into her low, wide container. Virginia’s mom, Lola Lyle, explained that her daughter’s first fairy garden was a project shared with a friend. Virginia wanted to return to make one just to keep at her own home. “This is a special mom-and-daughter time,” Lyle says, smiling. Linda Hopkins and Dottie Rose, whose families have grown up together in Lexington, worked side by side at another table. “The fairy garden display here just captures you,” says Hopkins, who admits she couldn’t wait for the workshop and even made a couple on her own in the interim.

Avoiding costly TFSA mistakes

When the Tax-Free Savings account was rolled out in 2009 it was praised for its simplicity. However, more than three years later, many young Canadians are still having trouble managing their TFSAs. Recently, the Canada Revenue Agency sent warning letters to about 76,000 people reminding them of TFSA contribution rules. While this number is down from more than 100,000 last year, many young investors are still left trying to understand how TFSA penalties can be avoided. “If you look at the available investment options, the TFSA is still very much the new kid on the block,” says Darren Bitzer, an investment specialist with Valley First Credit Union. “It’s important to talk to an expert to get the most out of your investments. A little knowledge can help ensure your hard earned cash stays in your back pocket.” Valley First has found the flexibility of the TFSA appeals to younger investors—those starting out in the workforce, saving for a down payment on a house or putting money aside for their young families. This is also the group that is most affected by unexpected tax penalties. “We’ve seen a growing number of young people turning to the

TFSA over more traditional investment products like RRSPs,” says Bitzer. “When you are doing your best to get ahead financially, any setback can not only be significant it can also be disheartening.” In a calendar year, account holders can invest up to $5,000 in their TFSAs. All income earned on the money invested in a TFSA is taxfree, as are withdrawals. Unused contribution room is carried forward and accumulates in future years. However, if account holders withdraw funds, they can only be replaced if they stay under their $5,000 annual limit. “The TFSA initial contribution room is quite straight forward,” explains Bitzer. “It’s when you start making withdrawals and re-investments that you can blow your contribution room. If you take any cash out of your TFSA, you can only reinvest up to the annual $5,000 limit and any additional contributions must be held over to the next calendar year. “For example, if you invest $3,000 then withdraw it all, you can only re-invest $2,000 in that year as the contribution room is cumulative.” Bitzer points out the cumulative investments can become even more complicated when investors have multiple TFSAs at different finan-

cial institutions. The $5,000 contribution applies to the total of all TFSAs not individual TFSAs. “Some people can be hit with over contribution penalties if they don’t share their full investment portfolios with their advisors,” says Bitzer. “At Valley First, we look at our member’s total financial picture. By taking into account all investments, we can help eliminate the over contributions and the nasty penalties that go with them.” According to the Canada Revenue Agency, more than $60 billion in assets is currently held in TFSAs. Over contributions are taxed at a rate of one per cent for each month there is an over contribution. For example, if a $500 over contribution was made in September, a TFSA holder would face a tax penalty of $20—calculated as one per cent of $500 (or $5) for four months. “Depending on your over contribution amount and the length of time your TFSA balance remaining over the limit, tax penalties can be significant,” says Bitzer. “This can be a real financial hit, especially to young people and families. “It’s best to avoid penalties altogether by speaking to an expert.”

A powerful financial tool Your mortgage can be a gold mine of savings, the pot of gold you have been looking for to tackle that renovation or landscaping project. It’s a powerful financial tool if it works for rather than against your financial situation. Begin by having a review done on your mortgage by a mortgage broker. While a good investment advisor can earn you thousands of dollars, a good mortgage broker can save you thousands by finding the best combination of mortgage features and rates to suit your situation. With mortgage in hand, assess you financial goals—looking for a way to reduce monthly payments, save on your mortgage interest over the long term, pay down the mortgage sooner, finance a special project, or buying a second home for your child during their university years. Thousands of Canadians have been taking a look at their fixed rate-rate mortgages in the last few months. We don’t have an economic crystal ball, but it seems clear that with mortgage rates lower than they were for our parents’ generation, the odds of an upward trend in mortgage rates are pretty good. That means right now you have an historic opportunity to get that mortgage working for you. Even if your mortgage is not up for renewal anytime soon, it’s still worth a review to see if you can renegotiate for a better rate.

Don’t assume that you are stuck with a fixed rate mortgage that is several points higher than today’s rock bottom rates. A mortgage broker can access rates from a wide variety of lending institutions and provide professional analysis of your options. A drop of only .10 % can save you thousands of dollars over the life of the mortgage. And if the end of your mortgage is in sight, either take a ‘watch and wait’ approach or consider a blend and extend to combine your old rate with current rates to help you take advantage of the low current interest rates. The current low rates are a boon to spenders as well as savers. Thinking about that home renovation? Or landscaping project this year? Ask a broker about using a mortgage to finance the project. Mortgage rates are typically far lower than other types of loans or lines of credit, so you can put your equity to work at rates that you couldn’t have dreamed of 10 years ago.

showcase W SPANISH STYLE REVIVAL

Living life Mediterranean style Kathleen Lynn CONTRIBUTOR

After they moved to an Englewood, N.J., Tudor in the 1980s, Lorraine and Lewis Baer occasionally passed a large stucco house with a red tile roof on North Woodland Avenue. Lorraine would look at it and say, “That’s the house I really wanted.” In 1991, she got her wish when the couple purchased the home from former New York Cosmos soccer star Giorgio Chinaglia. The eight-bedroom house is an example of the Spanish Revival style, which enjoyed a renaissance in the 1920s, especially in hot climates with a history of Spanish Colonial settlement, such as Florida and California. The buildings are marked by stucco walls, low-pitched tile roofs, arched windows or doorways, and sometimes curved parapets or gables decorating the roofline. Often, their front doors are dramatically carved wood, according to A Field Guide to American Houses, written by Virginia and Lee McAlester. Architectural historians say the style was popularized in part by the Panama-California Exposition in San Diego in 1915. d “Rather than copy the East’s revival of its own Colonial past, California turned to its Hispanic heritage for

inspiration,” the McAlesters wrote. Spanish Revival is among a number of styles that enjoyed a rebirth in the 1920s, including Colonials and Tudors. It was a time when architects and builders freely borrowed from historic styles, and home buyers could choose house styles out of architectural pattern books. The Spanish Revival homes would appeal to people “who wanted their house to be more unusual,” says T. Robins Brown, a historic preservation consultant and author. Their facades generally “aren’t too fussy,” she notes. But the homes are still picturesque, smacking of Florida vacations and Hollywood glamour. These buildings are uncommon in northern New Jersey, and owners of these homes love their unusual character. “It’s a different place. It’s not a McMansion—10,000 square feet of nothing,” says Lewis Baer, an art and antiques dealer in New York. “I think it really shows an old-world style of living, more of a European style of living. I think that’s really what attracted my wife. It’s that old-world charm.” “It’s got a lot of character to it,” says Gerry Santos, a graphic artist who, with his wife, owns a three-bedroom Spanish Revival. Real estate agent Bob Lindsay has a Spanish Revival home listed in Wayne, N.J., for $525,000 US;

the owners, he says, were from South America and loved the architecture because it reminded them of their native land. With their thick walls, the homes are also very solid. Tile roofs can easily last a century, and many of the North Jersey homes have their originals, Brown says. “It’s a nice, sturdy-looking style,” Brown says. Carol Berlin of Teaneck, N.J., who has a Spanish Revival house, agrees: “I feel like if there were some sort of natural disaster, this house would remain standing. It’s solid.” Similarly, an architect Baer hired for renovations at his home once told him: “If we have a nuclear war, I’m coming to your house.” James and Marianne DiDonato bought one of the homes in 1971. “It was different from all the Colonials we looked at,” says Marianne DiDonato, a retired human-resource employee. Homes appear small but are surprisingly spacious inside, perhaps because their living rooms have high, vaulted ceilings. Penny Santos says that after touring tiny Cape Cods in their house hunt, she and her husband loved the more open feeling of their house. Though the tile roofs last for a century or more, these homes are still at an age—more than 80 years old—

The Baers’ house needed a massive renovation, including replacement of the windows, the kitchen, and the electrical, plumbing and heating systems. The couple reconfigured the second floor to add bathrooms and transform 11 small bedrooms into eight larger ones. They transformed a telephone room on the first floor into a powder room. “It was a labor of love,” Lewis Baer says. Along the way, they talked to an interior designer who suggested a modern decor. “The designer wanted to make it into a new house,” Baer recalls. “That

was just the wrong way to go. We wanted to be very sympathetic to what was there.” To that end, they have furnished the home largely with European antiques. Carol and Dan Berlin bought their home in 1994. Discouraged by their initial attempts to find a house, seeing the Spanish Revival house was like a breath of fresh air. Sunlight poured in through large windows, and a sunroom with a tile floor and a fountain hinted at the enclosed courtyards of Spain. Carol said it was unique and unusual at first glance, but they have come to feel very fortunate to have ststumbled across this style of home design.

OKANAGAN

SHOWCASE W ELKRIDGE

A realistic home buying option Building a life in your own single-family home is now a realistic possibility. At the Elkridge developent in West Kelowna, new home wners are enjoying the daily pleasures of home ownership years before they had ever thought possible. The Project Build Society offers an innovative program to buyers at Elkridge through a down payment granat program. The society issues non-repayable grants to qualified home buyers to make the down payment on a new home. The grant program has been designed to help make home ownership possible for those who otherwise were not able to purchase a house in the Okanagan market. Qualifying families have to show their ability to successfully make their monthly mortgage payments. This opportunity to buy at Elkridge has helped 21 buyers acquire new homes, many of whom were assisted by the grant program. Kristi Russell and her husband Robert, along with their two children and Australian Shepherd puppy, bought their first home at Elkridge with down payment assistance. “My friend lives here and she told me to check out Project Build program,” said Kristi. “We couldn’t quite believe it was true, but the program allowed us to buy our own home so much sooner that we could have done otherwise.” Kristi and Robert start-

ed looking at homes in Elkridge in September of 2011. By March 2012, they were in their brand new, Elkridge home. The couple purchased the four bedroom Cedar floor plan with a finished basement, offering plenty of room for their growing family. “It is so nice to be settled in our own home,” acknowledged Kristi. She grew up across Okanagan Lake in Kelowna’s Upper Mission neighbourhood, but when she saw the great lifestyle and location Elkridge offered, it was easy for her to make the move to West Kelowna. And Kristi couldn’t be happier with the choice. “The location is really good for schools, and it is close to everything I need. When I open my window I can hear the creek that runs nearby.” Elkridge is located on Elk Road, east of Two Eagles Golf Course. When the Elkridge neighbourhood is completed, it will have about 70 single-family homes and 16 townhomes, with each home eligible for a Project Build grant. Elkridge has been designed for every home buyer; there are seven different floor plans plus variations depending on the slope of the lot in the single family homes. Plans range from 1,500 to 2,700 square-feet of finished living space. Single-family homes at Elkridge can fit modern families with either three or four bedrooms. Plus buyers have the option of a finished basement on

any of us look for the perfect piece of property to suit our needs, to either raise a family and set our routes down, run a business from the comfort of our home or perhaps just simply to make a great investment. However, what always seems to be an appealing option is to purchase a single-family home with a selfcontained rental suite, which can serve as an excellent mortgage helper. While this option ofREAL ESTATE fers a great opportunity to RUNDOWN get into the market, there are some heavy responsibilities that go along with being a landlord one shouldn’t overlook. Ceinwen I’ve recently spoke Morgan with a first-time home buyer who thought the best and easiest way to get into the market was purchasing a property with a suite, but unfortunately it didn’t work out that way. This first-time landlord had the unfortunate run-in to what is called a career renter, an individual who is able to take advantage of the tenancy act that ultimately costs the landlord money, such as missed rental payments or damage caused to the suite. While this is just one example of a case gone wrong, before you decide to jump into home ownership and become a landlord all at once, carefully weigh out your options. You might need to consider that there may be times when your rental property may stand vacant for a longer period of time, so you shouldn’t count on having a stable income from your rental property for all 12 months of the year. On the plus side, signing a long-term lease agreement with the right tenant should increase the likelihood of avoiding a month with no rental income. Investing in real estate is a great way to increase your wealth through capital appreciation. One of the biggest benefits to renting property is that it is very lucrative. There are currently 181 single-family homes with suites available on the market in the Kelowna area and so far this year there have been 188 sales with properties containing suites. So it seems to be a popular option for many local home buyers. Real estate is a solid long-term investment, so whether you’re purchasing a property because it comes with a rental suite mortgage helper or building your investment portfolio, perhaps a house with a suite is a viable way to go. Just do your homework before you jump in. Ceinwen Morgan has worked in the Kelowna real estate industry for the past five years.
