Don’t be surprised to see packs of official looking men and women streaming in and out of area businesses this morning, donning their workday best and an outof-place pair of sneakers. They’re on an official Economic Development Commission sanctioned mission and it requires comfortable shoes. By day’s end Central Okanagan mayors, city councillors, municipal staff and a smattering of representatives from business improvement areas between Lake Country and Peachland will have canvassed 300 area businesses on a pulse-taking mission, dubbed Business Walks. “We’ll be walking into businesses, and asking three questions,” said Corie Griffiths, the business development co-ordinator with the Economic Development Commission The questions are: How is business? What do you like about doing business in your area? What could be done to improve your business? They’re simple enough queries, but the answers could be used to build a much stronger economy in years to come, Griffiths explained. “What we’re hoping to glean is common themes about issues, barriers and opportunities that we can hopefully use to create a conversation,” she said. “Then we’ll create public reports on what the majority of responses are.” Individual comment, however, will remain anonymous. In the short-term, however, it will also give business owners and the municipalities policy makers and shapers a rare chance to speak. Usually, those conversations are delivered through a middleman, like Peggy Athans, executive director of the Downtown Kelowna Association. “Most of these are local, independently run businesses and they’re busy,” she said. “They’re running businesses with little staff, they don’t have as much time to write letters to visit city hall and communicate directly to them.” So, as the current ear for downtown businesses, Athans has a pretty good guess about what she’s going to hear today.

That’s revised again just before harvest begins so more accurate staffing levels can be determined and other preparations made. Boparai says he has been shipping through the co-op for the past 15 years without a problem, but he says many growers don’t have confidence in the cooperative, calling for upper management changes. They need to be more aggressive and to cut back on staff, Boparai added. In a written statement, OTFC chief executive officer Gary Schieck said he strongly disagrees with remarks made by Boparai that the co-operative’s workers are lazy and that they do not understand grower needs. “I certainly appreciate the dedication and expertise of the management team, their respective de-

The president of the B.C. Fruit Growers’ Association has been ousted from the Okanagan Tree Fruit Co-operative, the largest packinghouse in the valley, for not honouring his commitment to the co-operative to ship his fruit there. Kirpal Boparai says since he was elected president of the grower lobby organization early this year and began talking about the need for change in the co-operative, they have been “making it tough for me.” “They don’t want me to ask questions or call for changes,” he added. However, board president Rob Dawson says losing your membership in the co-operative is a consequence of not honouring your contract to sell all your apples through that organization. All members are responsible for sharing the cost of the co-operative’s overhead, Dawson explained, and if a member doesn’t fulfill his commitment, the costs for the remaining members would increase. When there’s a breach of contract a member can be thrown out of the coop, he added. “You can’t make a commitment for the year and then not honour it,” he said. Co-operative grower members agree at the beginning of the year to ship all their apples through

There’s a new furry pest invader in town Judie Steeves STAFF REPORTER

There’s a new pest in town and he’s looking to take over the world. Although his natural territory is strictly the eastern parts of Canada and the U.S., the eastern grey squirrel is moving into Kelowna and chasing out the smaller native red squirrel in the process. Karl Larsen, professor of wildlife ecology at Thompson Rivers University, says they will eat anything, including garbage, so they could have an impact on the tree fruit and grape industries once they become established here. Already the species has moved into countries such as Australia, South Africa, England and Italy as well as many other parts of the world, until they’re considered one of the top 100 invasive species on the planet. In addition to pushing out native species of squirrel, they also eat birds and birds’ eggs, dig up flowering bulbs, chow down on fruits and nuts as well as stripping the bark from trees, chewing through electrical wires, eaves and shingles and then nesting in and damaging roofs, attics and chimneys. Larsen will be speaking in Kelowna at the next meeting of the Central Okanagan Naturalists’ Club Tues., Oct. 9 at 7 p.m. at the Evangel Church, 3261 Gordon Dr. He has done 20 years of research on squirrels and will talk about native squirrels as well as the invasive greys. Visitors are welcome. While the native red squirrels are very territorial and will scold any interlopers into their territory, the grey squirrels are more amiable and will forage with a group of fellow

CONTRIBUTED

THE EASTERN grey squirrel will damage the tree fruit and grape industries if they become established in the Okanagan.

Karl Larsen greys, so populations can expand more rapidly, explains Larsen. He’s concerned that there is no clear response mechanism in this province for dealing rapidly with invasive species before they have a chance to become established. “This summer we should have been trapping them out of Kelowna and trying to eradicate them. By the time there are grey squirrels in a neighbourhood there are no red ones left,” he comments. Reports of greys have come in from Kelowna’s downtown, Glenmore and Knox Mountain areas as well as south of Harvey Avenue and in the Swamp Road area, said

Larsen. And, 16 have now been counted west of the bridge. That data comes from reports from a dedicated website that’s been set up to monitor their movements locally: www. introsquirrel.ca “I think if we’d jumped on it right away we could have eliminated the problem,” Larsen comments. However, they are trying to monitor the expansion of greys in this area and ask that anyone spotting one report it through the website or by calling 1-855-468-7077. Greys can be distinguished from reds by colouring, although sometimes greys are black, and sometimes reds are more on the brown side, but greys are twice the size of reds and fatter. The tails of greys are bushier and they do not have such a distinctive white eye ring as reds. Live traps or slingshots may be used for controlling them on your property, but do not relocate them, advises the Conservation Officer Service. jsteeves@kelownacapnews.com

SORTING THE TRASH…UBC Okanagan students Sadaf Khatibi, Josephine Schrott and Alex Rutledge were among the team volunteering their time to participate in a campus waste audit held Tuesday. Dressed in hazmat suits, garbage bags from the 11 campus buildings were gathered in the courtyard and the discarded garbage sorted to see what could have been diverted from the landfill. Allan King, manager of UBCO maintenance and grounds management, said the percentage breakdown of garbage collected that could otherwise have been recycled, refunded or composted was similar to the last audit in 2010. “That is actually pretty impressive given that we’ve added four more buildings since the last audit to the campus and added 2,500 students,” King said. The audit is a collaborative project between UBCO and GreenStep in partnership with the Okanagan Sustainability Office team at the Kelowna campus.

City endorses car share program Alistair Waters ASSISTANT EDITOR

A proposed car share program for Kelowna has received a financial shot in the arm, thanks to the city agreeing to give away another group’s money. Under the rules that govern its contributions to groups, the organization called Enterprising Non-Profits requires the city to facilitate the transfer of its grants. Enterprising Non-Profits, a Vancouver organization set up to help fund what it calls “social enterprises,” has given the Okanagan Car Share Co-op $6,500 to develop a business plan. The city announced the fund transfer earlier this week, noting none of the money came from its coffers. “It’s not costing the city anything,” said city regional projects manager Jerry Dombrowski. But he said while the city is not

obligated in any way other than to approved the flow of money from Enterprising Non-Profits to the car share co-op, it likes the idea of a car share program here. And so does Kelowna city council. “I think this is something that’s time has come here,” said Coun. Luke Stack, noting there are car share programs in other, larger cities such as Vancouver, Victoria and Winnipeg. Some large U.S. cities, like San Francisco, also have car share programs. The program works with people buying memberships in the program to help fund it to purchase the vehicles and then paying a small fee to use a vehicle in the fleet when they need one. Stack said it could turn two-car families into one-car families if they find they do not need to own the second vehicle. Dombrowsky said car sharing is supported in the city’s official com-

munity plan. In the past, some local highrise developments have proposed including localized car share programs for tenants. Dombrowsky said some individuals and families do not always need access to a vehicle and a program like this would be good for them as they could use a car or truck when they needed and save on the cost of owning, maintaining and insuring a vehicle year round. And it would be good for the environment. Dombrowsky’s report to council highlighted a recent study that found that car share programs result in fewer kilometres travelled and that, in turn helps the environment because fewer greenhouse gases are produced and released into the air and road congestion is also reduced. The Okanagan Car Share Co-op plans to start in Kelowna but would eventually like to expand throughout the valley.

Leadership of Tourism Kelowna CEO applauded The Kelowna Chamber of Commerce has named Nancy Cameron, president and chief executive officer of Tourism Kelowna, winner of the 2012 Business Leader of the Year award. This award recognizes Cameron’s leadership and outstanding contribution to the Kelowna business community. The award will be presented to Cameron at the 25th annual Business Excellence Awards on Oct. 17 at the Delta Grand Okanagan Resort and Conference Centre. The 2012 Business Excellence Awards are presented by the Kelowna Chamber of Commerce along with Platinum Sponsors the Business Development Bank of Canada (BDC) and Farris, Vaughan, Wills & Murphy LLP. Recipients of awards in six other categories will also be honoured at the awards dinner.

Seventeen finalists in each of these six categories were previously announced on Sept.7. It’s no secret that tourism is a life blood industry for Kelowna—the third largest private sector employer in Kelowna, in fact. In a press release announcing the award, the chamber says Cameron is one person who sees all the pieces of this puzzle and directs strategy around marketing the destination to droves of visitors and potential visitors in Kelowna’s key markets. Her marketing savvy and astute promotional sense has allowed Tourism Kelowna to harness momentum around Kelowna’s tourism attributes and to position the organization amongst Canada’s advisory circle in the Destination Marketing Association Canada. Her dynamism and vision have motivated tour-

ism staff and operators. As president and CEO of Tourism Kelowna, Cameron is responsible for its overall operation, and the implementation of strategic marketing, sales and service initiatives designed to increase tourist demand for Kelowna. Cameron is the first woman ever to receive this distinction since the Chamber introduced the Business Leader of the Year Award. Cameron has evolved Kelowna’s Destination Marketing Organization (DMO) into one that is industry-driven and recognized as a model for midsize Canadian DMOs. Her keen focus on growth is activated through a partnership approach with Kelowna’s 300+ tourism businesses. Among other milestone achievements for Kelowna, Cameron trail blazed the implementation of Kelowna’s two per cent Additional Hotel Room

FIGHT FOR FOOD…A rally was held Sunday at Kerry Park by a local group voicing their opposition to genetically engineered fruit from being approved for sale by Health Canada. More than 60 protesters sang and waved signs as guest speakers, led by Heidi Osterman, a certified Kelowna nutritionist who organized the rally, spoke out against two apple varieties, the Arctic Golden and Arctic Granny, proposed by a Summerland biotech company as fruit trees that can produce non-browning apples. Osterman said the Okanagan’s agricultural reputation will be damaged if Health Canada approves what she calls the production of “Franken-apples” without doing more extensive research to better determine the potential bad health affects from genetically modified fruits and vegetables.

On the wine front, her efforts united the local wine industry with the identification of five wine trails in the Kelowna area, refreshing the relevance of the Kelowna brand as the birthplace of B.C.’s wine industry and a must-visit destination for wine tourists. Her leadership also galvanized a Studio & Farm Tour brochure as a way to drive tourism to local agri-tourism and artisan businesses, later developing the farm-to-table aspect which includes restaurants which support

local growers and producers. Cameron hails from Ontario and has a background in resort and recreation marketing. During her 20-plus years of involvement in the tourism and recreation industries she has held the position of president of Destination Marketing Association Canada, chair of the BC Destination Marketing Organization Roundtable, and board positions with the Thompson Okanagan Tourism Association, The YMCA of the Central Okanagan and the Gryphon Professional Theatre in Barrie, Ont. Cameron was also an instrumental part of the team responsible for securing the inaugural LAKelowna flight routes. She and her fami-

ly moved to Kelowna for the recreational lifestyle it affords and can often be found hiking the local trails, skiing, or enjoying lake activities. A tireless advocate, Cameron’s unwavering vision for the promotion of Kelowna’s destination brand in all its vibrancy keeps Tourism Kelowna on target for growing tourism demand and overnight stays in the Kelowna area.

Apple prices see increase due to other crop failures Judie Steeves STAFF REPORTER

The misfortunes of apple growers in Eastern Canada translate into good news for B.C. growers, with prices for this year’s apple crop already 10 to 20 per cent higher than last year. A late spring frost decimated apple crops in Eastern Canada and the U.S., so local fruit is in heavy demand from buyers who normally would purchase it in the east.

Hank Markgraf, field services manager for the Okanagan Tree Fruit Cooperative, says this year’s harvest is only partway through, but overall fruit quality is good, including colour and firmness. A cool spring here means fruit is slightly smaller, but the quantity of fruit is up from what was forecast, just under three million 20-pound cartons. The crop in neighbouring Washington State is also up, at about 120 mil-

lion cartons, but it’s hoped that U.S. sellers will sell into the Eastern U.S. rather than focussing on the B.C. markets this year, he commented. Very hot weather this summer slowed ripening of the crop, because trees tend to shut down during hot weather, so apples are being picked a bit later than usual, Markgraf said. MacIntosh apples have already been picked and growers are in the midst of harvesting Royal Galas. They’ll be fol-

lowed by Ambrosias and Spartans. This week’s colder nights have helped increase the colouring in them prior to picking, noted Markgraf, as did a couple of cooler nights in early September with the early varieties of apples. Chris Pollock, marketing manager for B.C. Tree Fruits, the marketing arm for the OTFC, says sales teams are setting up sales programs for Eastern Canadian customers and exports to Southeast Asia.

“It’s an opportunity for us this year, but we’d like to create partnerships for the long term, not just a one-off,� he explained. As well, he said they must first ensure their loyal Western Canadian

customers are looked after first. He did speculate that this year’s crop could be sold earlier than in most years, although they need to be able to have fruit available to provide con-

tinued sales to customers through spring as well. Prices are definitely better than they have been in recent years, he said, and that’s not expected to change. jsteeves@kelownacapnews.com

However, he added, “it’s probably going to happen with more growers this year.� The co-op is owned by 580 growers and their families, packing, marketing and distributing a variety of fruit, including apples, pears, cherries, peaches, apricots, prune plums and blueberries. Through its marketing arm, B.C. Tree Fruits, the co-op’s fruit is sold to major retail and wholesale outlets across Canada and beyond its borders, as it has for more than 75 years.

Stewards of our waterways

C

reeks and rivers support an interdependent web of life and we damage them at our peril. For much of the last century, we have done everything imaginable to destroy these critical waterways—burying them, altering their course, polluting them, diminishing their capacity to support life. It’s a wonder we still have functioning creeks and rivers and to which exhausted salmon still return to spawn.

Nature’s resilience can explain why our creeks and rivers still teem with life. But there have been efforts made over the years to improve things and some humans deserve credit. Thanks to streamkeepers and other stewards, there are more kilometres of life-supporting habitat along these waterways and more fish in the once sterile creeks. Thanks to wise lawmakers, there are more regulations requiring industry to minimize the

impact of development and resource extraction on waterways, and cities are taking more responsibility and using best practices to protect waterways. Even the public is getting involved by cleaning up garbage during the Shoreline Cleanup, removing invasive species, planting native species and speaking up when problems arise. All it takes is one thoughtless move or a change in government or social attitudes, and all that

hard work protecting our waterways can disappear. World Rivers Day was marked last Sunday. Hopefully, we made time to learn about our nearest creeks and rivers and take a walk along them, observing how they still bear life despite their proximity to industry and development. True, they are under threat day by day, but if each of us becomes a responsible steward, they have a greater chance of surviving into the next century.

THURSDAY’S QUESTION:

Party Leaders’ political spin contest at UBCM ends in a tie

T

he Union of B.C. Municipalities convention is the political event of the year for B.C. party leaders, especially heading into a provincial election. Up first was NDP leader Adrian Dix, who drew a large crowd of local politicians last week for the traditional early-morning spot that follows a long evening of receptions. In contrast to his debut last year— a typical litany of political attacks on the B.C. Liberals—Dix declared he would take the high road. And perhaps mindful of Carole James’ downfall after her content-free speech to the 2010 UBCM convention, Dix set out policies. He told delegates an NDP govern-

ment would restore local authority over Metro Vancouver transit (no more toothless “mayor’s council”) and mountain resorts (no more jumbo ski resort permits issued over local objections). Dix would also let communities decide if they want public-private partnerships for large construction projects. (Federal Heritage Minister James Moore later noted that if communities or provinces wish to decline federal funds due to this ideology, they are free to do so.) Then Dix accused the B.C. Liber-

VICTORIA als of cutting forest inspending by VIEWS ventory 77 per cent over the last decade, meaning decisions like rebuilding the Burns Lake mill are being made “in the dark” Tom for the first time in a Fletcher century. That’s a damning charge, so I checked it against forest ministry budget records. As with all government programs, accounting changes can give a misleading appearance of large cuts or increases from year to year. And indeed forest inventory spending has bounced around during the B.C. Liberal term.

The budget for forest inventory staffing and operation was about $8 million in 2001-02, rising as high as $15 million and falling to a low of $5.1 million in recession-hit 200910. The estimate for the current fiscal year is $9.7 million, an increase to try to catch up with the pine beetle disaster. Crown forest inventory has indeed fallen behind due to rapid shifts caused by unprecedented insect and fire damage. But has spending been slashed as Dix claims? No. It has increased. Next up was Premier Christy Clark, in full campaign mode. In the Gordon Campbell tradition, she brought the goodies out in her speech

to close the convention. More than $200 million has been scraped together to “accelerate” capital projects at schools, hospitals and other facilities across the province. These projects were already on the books, but they’ve been moved up for obvious political purposes. Or at least the announcements will be moved up. Four-laning of the last narrow stretches of the Trans-Canada Highway east of Kamloops will continue over 10 years. This is a federal-provincial project that will eventually be finished regardless of who is governing in Victoria or Ottawa. It in-

▼ DECRIMINALIZING POT

Can legalized pot compete on quality, price? To the editor: I read Kathy Michaels’ column (Flourishing Drug Trade Evidence ‘War’ Hasn’t Worked, Sept. 28 Capital News) with interest and I have a few thoughts. Many people are getting on the “Stop The Violence” bandwagon when it comes to drugs. They say decriminalize, regulate and tax the heck out of marijuana and the gangs will go away—they will not kill each other and the government will make all this tax money, and everyone will live happily after ever. Wrong. The pot trade is $7 billion. OK, maybe, but at least $5 billion of that is traded to the U.S. for cocaine and guns. Is the government go-

ing to continue in that trade, or will the gangs still be fighting and killing over that big piece of the pie? Won’t the gangs still be selling cocaine, heroin, methamphetamines, ecstasy, etc.? I am sure the government isn’t going to decriminalize, regulate and tax that. The federal government took over the medical marijuana business, The quality supplied by the government was so poor, no one buys from the government so the people with medical marijuana licenses get to grow up to 55 plants at a time (enough pot to stay stoned for years) but they customarily grow hundreds of plants and sell the crop. But, back to the government: Let’s just say it decriminalizes, regulates

and taxes marijuana and sells it in liquor stores. Can they compete with the gangs on quality? The feds didn’t. Can they compete with the gangs on price? Of course not, taxing is to make revenue. Will the government sell to teenagers? Of course not, but the gangs do now and will under the government plan. Will the government deliver any time of the day or night? No, but the gangs do and will continue to do so under the government plan. One of the arguments for decriminalization of marijuana is so simple possession of small amounts will not cause a criminal record. It does not now—no one is charged for sim-

ple possession of small amounts. The only charges and convictions for possession is when someone is caught with a larger amount and it’s designated as possession for the purpose of trafficking, and they cop a plea to a lesser charge. If marijuana is legalized, police will no longer be able to enter grow houses, or search vehicles because of the smell, because then it will be OK to have marijuana bought from the government. It will be much easier for gangs to grow and move their product. The only way to stop the violence, is to legalize all drugs, and sell them at cost, by the government at corner stores and gas stations. And you know that

isn’t going to happen. People argue that booze was legalized and taken away from the gangs but that is different. People buy government booze for the quality—bathtub gin tastes terrible, and that is why home made liquor doesn’t compete with the government. But stolen or smuggled booze does have ready buyers because it is just as good and a lot cheaper than the liquor stores. I don’t care if marijuana is regulated or legalized or not. But the gangs and the violence are here to stay, and if the council of mayors think otherwise, they should stop drinking their own bathwater and think a little bit. Dave Lawrence, Kelowna

Decriminalizing pot would be a moronic move To the editor: I would like to respond to Kathy Michaels’s column. I feel that she has missed a few points in the macro economics of this world. If she and others feel that by decriminalizing pot it will somehow lead to a great tax influx to the government, they are sadly mistaken. On an economics scale this is what I predict will happen; • An attempt will be made to have licensed grow operations, which will lead to billions being spent on policing unlicensed operations • The product that will be licensed for “legal” sale will be so low in active ingredient people won’t buy it, a higher more potent product can be home grown and sold to your friends as it is being done now, still run by the gangs. I could go on but most people educated in

our modern liberal arts schools and universities wouldn’t understand the concepts being outlined. Suffice to say I believe that the UBCM group (B.C. mayors) has taken a great step backwards in endorsing this movement. Using the base criteria that was used to promote this endorsement lets list a few other things that should be decriminalized because gangs are making too much money at it, we are spending too much money trying to stop it and there are so many people participating in it: • child pornography • child slavery • impaired driving • date rape. How about a couple that should be just legalized: • running red lights • speeding

• cell phone/texting while driving. There can be a case made for allowing anything because someone thinks that it goes against their rights. I believe that the main reason that most of these people are promoting the decriminalization of pot is because they are preparing the stage so that they can make millions of dollars growing, processing and selling this drug to kids. And what happens when your kid gets run down by some doped up driver? Do you look back and say: “Yes I am proud that I stood up for the decriminalization of pot” As a province and nation there are billions spent to try and get people to stop smoking and now the UBCM is promoting smoking— isn’t this an oxymoron or just moronic. Tom Neave, Kelowna

Accident in due course at Collette and Lakeshore Open letter to Kelowna city council: As a concerned parent and health professional, I would like to address the in- and egress of traffic at the corner of Collett and Lakeshore Drive. The Waldorf School has been in existence for 30 years. The rapid traffic increase to the

new South Kelowna, Kettle Valley developments over the past 10 years has created dangerous traffic patterns: Left hand turns into Collett and from Collett into Lakeshore Drive are getting problematic for the 40 to 60 school children, their parents and teachers.

Usual blacktop politics at UBCM cludes some of the most staggeringly expensive road building in Canada, in the Kicking Horse Pass—a short section that could require two tunnels and up to 12 more bridges. Clark also announced a long-range plan to replace the George Massey tunnel under the Fra-

ser River. It will likely be a bridge, because the tunnel is a bottleneck not only for Highway 99, but also for large ships going up-river. This is another project that will proceed eventually, and there is no specific financial commitment yet. I haven’t found any outright false claims in Clark’s presentation, just the kind of creative ac-

City Park possible site to locate tourist info building Alistair Waters

the idea of moving the existing visitor information centre from its current location on Harvey Avenue at Ellis Street to City Park at this week’s council meeting and the idea appeared to go over well. “What a great first impression of our city,” said Coun. Colin Basran after hearing about the proposal as part of a bigger plan

ASSISTANT EDITOR

Kelowna city council has approved a plan to start looking at redeveloping City Park. And that could see a reconfiguration of amenities and the addition of a new visitor information centre building. City staff floated

to revamp City Park. “I think it will help hold visitors downtown instead of stopping along the highway and moving on.” The existing visitor information centre building is considered woefully inadequate and not in a prominent location. But Coun. Robert Hobson sounded a note

of caution saying he has heard concern in the community about the visual impact a two-storey building could have so close to the downtown lakeshore. “It’s going to be important through this process to show people what the sightlines are for a building of this nature,” said Hobson. Council approved spending $40,000 on a public process to start development of a concept plan for the park’s future. Parks and public

spaces manger Terry Barton, said the proposed twostorey visitor information centre could be built at the corner of Abbott Street and Bernard Avenue, near the Sails sculpture, just inside the park boundary. He said it is envisioned to be oriented closer to Abbott Street than the lakeshore and would be part of the overall redevelopment plan. That plan, however it looks in the end, would be worked on in phases and could take as along as 10

years to complete. In addition to the proposed building, the city is also eying improvements to the park’s main entrance on Abbott Street, just off Harvey Avenue, revamping some of the existing amenities such as the children’s waterpark, the skateboard park the playground and the basketball area, and completing a rebuilding and widening of the lakeshore walkway, or promenade, from Hot Sands Beach to the Sails. The first phase of that work has already been done from the Bennett Bridge underpass to Hot Sands Beach. Barton said he has heard many requests for a modern version of the former aquatic stadium that was located in the park until 1969 when fire destroyed it and that idea could also be looked at in

the planning process. But he said the visitor information centre building would provide the park with new amenities, such as permanent public washrooms, bicycle rentals, food concessions and outdoor eating areas, as well as other services. The park has had temporary washrooms since the Pavilion Building burned down last year. While supportive of the concept for moving the visitor information centre into City Park, Mayor Walter Gray warned against putting too much in the park, as the vast expanse of open space is what makes it a special place. Still, there were calls for more amenities to be added. Hobson said he wants to see somewhere for runners in the park, noting the running track that used to be located there was popular. All acknowledged the fact that City Park has changed over the years and the city’s latest plan is just part of its evolution. Moving the visitor information centre in to the downtown core is supported by both the city’s new Downtown plan and its Official Community Plan. Barton said the site is desirable because it will not only bring visitors into the downtown, it is also close to many downtown attractions, hotels and tourist-related services.

I visit people once a week, and it’s been surprisingly, extremely positive.� While the downtown may be enthusiastic about economic conditions, Okanaganites know that each region and neighbourhood has its own set of challenges, which is why no area is being left un-canvassed.

Three Okanagan students receive education awards Three Okanagan residents were among 48 students from across B.C. to have their outstanding efforts recognized with Coast Capital Savings Education Awards this year. Kelowna resident Michael Potts was awarded the credit union’s Citizenship Award valued at $2,000 for his achievements in juggling school, personal activities and community involvement. In addition to his outstanding academic performance, Potts is a youth leader at his church and raised thousands of dollars in humanitarian aid and participated in several mission trips abroad. Potts wants to become a medical doctor and work with Doctors Without Borders. “This is a wonderful way to kick off the start of a new school year,” said Potts, who is studying nursing at UBC Okanagan. “It is exciting to be recognized by an organization that shares my passion and commitment for the community.” Amina Egeh, also of Kelowna, took home a $5,000 Standing Tall Award for making a positive impact on her community in the face of personal challenges. Egeh is the president of Kelowna Secondary School’s Me to We Social Justice Club and was elected president of her graduating class. She intends to go to law school and work in politics once she completes her undergraduate degree. “I can’t express how thankful I am to be recognized with an education award from Coast Capital Savings,” said Egeh, who is studying public affairs and policy management at Carleton University. “I know there were many deserving applicants this year and to be

among such outstanding recipients is a huge honour.” Philip Akins, of West Kelowna, received a Citizenship Award valued at $2,000 for his efforts in managing a demanding academic life while balancing community involvement. Akins is currently pursuing a PhD in collaborative resource management and protected areas at the University of Victoria. He also created a volunteer group to preserve trails in Okanagan Mountain Provincial Park and was part of the committee overseeing the development plan of West Kelowna’s waterfront. “It’s great to be recognized for my hard work along with the other very deserving recipients,” said Akins. “This award will help me pursue my PhD and ease some of the financial pressure that comes with post-secondary education.” Wendy Lachance, director of community leadership for Coast Capital Savings, said the credit union received nearly 1,000 award applications this year from across the province. “Coast Capital Savings is committed to helping build a richer future for youth in our communities,” Lachance said. “One of our goals is to help youth succeed during their school years and through our annual Education Awards program we recognize students who have overcome personal challenges and students who have demonstrated a strong commitment to their communities while attending school. “It is an honour to support these outstanding young people.” This year Coast Capital Savings presented 48 awards totaling $144,000 to deserving students from

SPORTS ▼ WORLD CURLING TOUR

World’s best curlers come to Kelowna Kevin Parnell

Cotter with rock star shots at Vernon spiel Kevin Mitchell

STAFF REPORTER

Jim Cotter’s Vernonbased curling rink has travelled far and wide to attend World Curling Tour events, including the four Grand Slam of Curling bonspiels with their large $100,000 purses that are held each year. But for the first time ever Cotter and his rink, which includes Kelowna curlers Tyrel Griffith and Rick Sawatsky, will have the chance to play at Prospera Place in Kelowna as the World Curling Tour’s Grand Slam of Curling comes to Kelowna Dec. 12 to 16. It will be the first time Prospera Place has played host to a curling bonspiel in its history. “This is fabulous,” said Cotter after his rink claimed the World Curling Tour’s Prestige Hotels Classic in Vernon (see story) last weekend. “When we heard it was a possibility it was going to be in Kelowna we were all extremely excited. We have lots of family and friends around the area. It’s nice to play close by. Generally we are flying all over the country. To be able to play at home is fantastic and hopefully we qualify for it.” The Kelowna event will be the second leg of the Grand Slam of Curling, which will feature the top 18 curling rinks in the world, according to the rankings on the World Curling Tour. After losing Kevin Folk from its rink, Cotter is currently ranked 18th in the world but is expected to pick up more

LISA VANDERVELDE/VERNON MORNING STAR

SKIP JIM COTTER makes the call as sweepers Rick Sawatsky (left) and Tyrel Griffith bring the rock home. The Vernon-based rink is expected to be one of 18 that will compete for $100,000 in the Grand Slam of Curling, coming to Prospera Place in Kelowna on Dec. 12 to 16. points before the Kelowna event to qualify. Top rinks like Kevin Martin of Alberta, Jeff Stoughton of Manitoba, Ontario’s Glen Howard and Brad Gushue of Newfoundlan/Labrador all reside within the top 16 rankings and should be among a star-studded field that will come to Kelowna. “To have an event like this in Kelowna is big,” said Sawatsky. “As far as the calibre of teams and the play, this area might never see an event of this magnitude again. These are the best teams in the world. The shot making you will see from these guys is amazing.” The ability of Prospera Place to host a large curling event came down to timing. The Western

Hockey League’s Kelowna Rockets will play at home on Dec. 8 before hitting the road and allowing the World Curling Tour to move in and take over Prospera Place from Dec. 9 until the event begins on Dec. 12. “What made it work is the timing,” said Prospera Place general manager Wayne Pansegrau. “The Rockets are on their Eastern swing and there is no conflict with the hockey team. Before there has always been a scheduling problem. It’s been hard to get high profile curling events in the past.” The Grand Slam of Curling is a week-long event, while the Canadian men’s and women’s championships go a full two weeks, which has

kept Prospera from being able to host a large curling bonspiel. Pansegrau says this Grand Slam event should be exciting for the building and for the city. “We have a few people in our building that have worked curling events in Victoria,” he said. “But I would say 95 per cent of our staff haven’t worked it. It’s exciting for Kelowna. If we show well and Kelowna supports this event we potentially could get something like the Scott Tournament of Hearts or bonspiels that are a bigger deal.” Staff at Prospera Place will hand over the controls to the World Curling Tour officials, who will be in charge of ice-making and set-up. Sawatsky says

top ice makers will ensure that the ice is great and allow the curlers to do what they do best. “The icemaker for the tour has been able to go into any arena and transform it from hockey to curling ice that is just unbelievable,” he said. “It’s fast and consistent and it curls a ton so it’s really entertaining for the people. You can make any shot. It’s good for the fans to be able to watch what the guys can do and showcase their talents.” The Grand Slam of Curling Canadian Open goes Dec. 12 to 16 at Prospera Place. Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. today through Select Your Tickets. kparnell@kelownacapnews.com

Jim Cotter was literally a rock star Monday night at the Vernon Curling Club. He one-upped every spectacular shot Jamie King’s Edmonton rink tossed for a 7-3 victory in the men’s final of the World Curling Tour $62,000 Prestige Hotels Curling Classic. Cotter, who played third for 2008-09 champion Bob Ursel of Kelowna, won his first Vernon cashspiel as a skip. He was backed by newcomer Jason Gunnlaugson at third, and Tyrel Griffith and Rick Sawatsky on the front end. Sawatsky was lead for those two Ursel winning teams. Cotter, who took the long and winding C event road to the final six , collected $7,000. King, with Blake MacDonald throwing skip rocks, Scott Pfeifer and Jeff Erickson aboard, took home $5,000. King won the Saville Shootout two weeks ago in Edmonton. “It’s a new team so we had to maximize our games,” laughed Cotter, seconds after being bearhugged by his young daughter, Emerson. “It all worked out good. Even after our second loss, we thought we played well. Sean (of New Westminster) Geall had a good team and that one kind of slipped away. “We just knew we’d be OK if we stuck to our gameplan. We believe in one another. I know it’s a cliche, but you gotta stick together which we did and just slowly progressed from there and got better and better.” Sawatsky and Griffith, in his second year with the team, earned their showers with hard sweeping and Gunnlaugson almost broke a rock or two with his zillionper-hour throws. “Hats off to our front end; they were phenomenal on the brooms and Jason is a great addition to our team. I look forward to hitting the ice again.” Gunnlaugson, who moved here five months ago from Winnipeg, is ecstatic with his new teammates, who went 3-3 in the Saskatoon cashspiel two weeks ago. “I couldn’t have met nicer guys,” said Gunnlaugson, 28. “Other curlers are teasing me because I have to be the biggest jerk on the team with these guys. It’s a lot of fun playing with them and obviously, and when Jimmy goes into God-mode on Monday, it’s nice for a cheque.” Gunnlaugson is famous for being able to throw a rock with a four-second peel (time measured from hogline to hogline). Some of his shots were captured on Youtube from the 2008 Canadian Mixed Tournament. His female teammates were unable to keep up with the speed of the rock. A nephew of curling great Garry VanDenBerghe, now of Vernon, Gunnlaugson had a front-row seat for Cotter’s magical performance. Cotter competes in the Westcoast Curling Classic in New Westminster this weekend. Kevin Mitchell is the sports editor at the Vernon Morning Star.

Sundevils put Lions in the shade

Nate Humes was a force that not even the defending provincial bantam football champion Kelowna Mission Lions could hold down on Sunday. Humes received the game ball for the West Kelowna Sundevils junior bantam football team as the Sundevils beat the Lions 28-8. The Sundevils win highlighted a busy weekend of minor football as several teams were in action. Humes scored all four Sundevils touchdowns on the day with runs of 28, 32 and 40 yards. He also caught a 40 yard touchdown pass from Salem Clark, who also contributed on defense with a sack. Chris Smith chipped in with four points on converts for the Sundevils and also added a sack. Nick Kopp ran over 100 yards on five carries for the day rushing including a big 65 yard run and also added a sack. Humes was also a force on defense adding multiple sacks and over 10 tackles while Spencer Lindholm added two

tioning really showed yesterday. “Our offense was able to put lots of points on the board yesterday despite the many miscues, which was great considering we had most of our offensive line away or injured on Sunday,” Smith said. The team hopes to be back to full strength and healthy this weekend when they play the Kelowna Dragons in West Kelowna at Shannon Woods Field at 2 p.m.

••• The Kelowna Mission Atom Lions football team won its fifth game in a row this past Sunday defeating the West Kelowna Atom Sun Devils 40-6 at Shannon Woods field in West Kelowna. The win improves the Lions record at 5-and-0 for first place in the Southern Interior Football Conference standings. The Lions were led by the ground game as they rushed for more than 300 yards on offense running behind a solid offensive. Scoring rushing majors were Nate Beauchemin, Noah Gross, Chad Laughren and Alex Mace. Beauchemin also scored a touchdown on a tremendous 50 yard kick return run. The defense again held firm allowing only on touchdown on the day. In five games the Lions have outscored their opponents 216 to 12. Next up for the Atom Lions are the Kamloops Atom Broncos at the CNC Turf Field in Kelowna on Friday.

After thumping the Trail Smoke Eaters 9-2 at home on Friday, the West Kelowna Warriors couldn’t hold onto a third period lead in Trail and dropped a 3-2 overtime decision on Tuesday in the second of three straight B.C. Hockey League games between the two teams. It was the Warriors second overtime loss of the season and second defeat in as many tries at the Cominco Arena. Brennan Clark and Marcus Basara each tallied for the Warriors in the first period before a Scott Davidson marker just as a Trail powerplay expired meant the visitors were up 2-1 after 20 minutes of play. The second period turned into a scrambly affair, with neither team able to find the back of the net. Clinging to a onegoal lead, the Warriors found themselves unable to clear their zone midway through the third period, leading to a tying goal from Trail’s Connor Collett. West Kelowna would push hard for another go-

The Smokies netminder was named the first star of the night and has been instrumental in both of Trail’s wins over the Warriors. In overtime Collett would set up Tyler Berkholtz for the game-winner for the Smoke Eaters. The Smoke Eaters remain a perfect 4-0 at the Cominco Arena and Trail has now beaten West Kelowna in two of three matchups on the season and is two points up on the

Warriors in the BCHL’s Interior Conference. “It’s a bitter loss” Warriors forward Reid Simmonds said. “We gave them a little chance in the third period and they capitalized. We kind-of underestimated Trail. Coming in here they’ve obviously proven that they’re a great home team.” The Warriors will get a quick chance at redemption, with yet another matchup with the Smokies set for Friday night at Royal LePage Place. West Kelowna then heads to Vernon on Saturday.

Win missed by one wrong turn Building upon momentum from last weekend, the UBC Okanagan Heat women narrowly missed the team victory finishing as the second team at the Pacific Lutheran Invitational Cross Country meet in Tacoma, Washington on Saturday. The UBC Okanagan women were positioned to win the team title before one of their runners ran off course with a few hundred meters to the finish line. The mistake cost the team two points, the Heat finished one point shy of meet winner the Pacific Lutheran Lutes. “Nikki and I were extremely pleased with the women’s performance,” said coach Nathan Reiter. “It was tough to lose the team title by only one point however the girls learned a valuable lesson that will prepare them for future races.”

UBCO HEAT runner Michelle Blackburne (right) set a quick pace at an event in Tacoma last weekend. Leading the charge was rookie sensation from Mt. Boucherie, Michelle Blackburne, who finished 2nd overall in 24:24 over the 6 km course. The remainder of the Heat women filled the top 10 finishing with Ashley Yip

in sixth, Trisha Metro in seventh, Alea Stockton in eighth and Shayla Millan in 10th. Yip, a Kelowna Secondary product in her second year racing with the team, was very enthusiastic about the trip

to Washington and the team’s results. “I was surprised that we could hold our own against the American competitors and it was a fast fun race,” said the microbiology major. “It was like running through a corn maze.” In the men’s race, first year Jeff Kerkovius made his debut for the Heat placing 12th overall. Similar to last weekend, the men’s team showed great depth having their 2nd to 5th runners within a 33 second span. Roger Sherwood, Garrett Anstett, Carlos Capela and Jared Kesteven rounded out the men’s scoring. “The men showed some good improvement from last year’s performances,” Reiter said. “I am very excited to field our

All 13 Kelowna skaters made a strong impression for Team B.C. last weekend in Regina, returning home with six medals in total. The Kelowna Skating Club and BMO Kelowna Centre for Skating Excellence were well represented at the Sask Skate Invitational competition in Regina. The event featured many top skaters from B.C., Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba, all of which were pre-selected to represent their provinces. Kelowna’s Monika Randall placed first in both segments of the novice women’s division, taking the gold medal with a personal best score of 101.52 points. Club mate Julianne Delaurier won the silver medal, while Dana Bobyn finished sixth. Kelowna skaters almost completed a podium sweep in pre-juvenile women, as Olivia Gran, Ashley Sales, Alyssa Dobbs and Daria Carr finished first, second fourth and seventh respectively. Nine year-old Gran’s win-

ning score of 31.17 was a personal best. In juvenile women, 11 year-old Rochelle Reeve skated to a gold medal finish, with fellow Kelowna skater Madison Delcourt placing seventh. At the Junior level, OKMSS student Cailey England finished second with a season-best 102.45 points, while Jayda Jurome finished less than three-tenths of a point shy of the podium and settled for fourth. The KSC was also represented at the prenovice level, with Ajsha Gorman and Rosalyn Carr placing seventh and fifteenth respectively, in a very competitive field of skaters. Rachel Pettitt, who represents Arctic Edge in YT but trains in Kelowna, finished third. “This was valuable experience for all of our skaters,” said KSC Director Jason Mongrain. “It gave our higher level skaters an opportunity to get some much needed mileage on some very difficult program content, as well as gaining experience at the venue for the upcoming Skate Canada Chal-

lenge in December. For our younger skaters, this provided a great first experience of traveling outside of BC for a team event.” ••• Along with the competition, KSC coaches had a busy week as the club hosted a seminar with Tracy Wilson, a world-renowned skater and coach. Wilson spent three days in Kelowna, working with skaters of all levels on some fundamentals of skating technique. “It was fantastic for our skaters and coaches,” said Mongrain. “Her knowledge and energy was very inspiring and we feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity to learn from her experience.” With her partner Rob McCall, Tracy won an Olympic bronze medal, three World Championship bronze medals and seven Canadian Championships in ice dance. She went on to become an analyst for networks including CBC and NBC and has coached many international skaters including Olympic Gold Medallist Yu-Na Kim.

HEAT WOMEN

Determined to find the win column after three straight draws, the women’s soccer team from UBC Okanagan came out charging against the Thompson Rivers University WolfPack on Sunday in a game that saw a lot of chances for the Heat but ended in a 1-1 draw; the fourth consecutive draw for UBC Okanagan. The Heat’s goal was scored when midfielder Marissa Klees (3rd year, Bellingham, WA) found the back of the net on a perfectly placed ball in the 17th minute for the game’s first goal. The score remained 1-0 UBC Okanagan heading into the half. TRU tied the game in

The attempt sailed just over the outstretched arms of fifthyear goalkeeper Sabrina Gasparac (Langley, BC), and the game was knotted at one goal apiece. At just over the halfway mark in the 2012 PACWEST season, the Heat’s record stands at 2-5-1, with the team finding themselves in a tightly contested playoff race down the stretch.

On Saturday the team’s also played to a 1-1 tie with the UBCO goal coming from third year forward Lindsey Briggs. The Heat will look to get back in the win column on Saturday when they travel to Newton Athletic Park to take on the Kwantlen Polytechnic University Eagles in a game with serious playoff positioning implications.

Edmonton career fair reflects trades job demand in Alberta

L

ast week, I attended the Alberta Employment and Career Fair in Edmonton. This event was funded by the Alberta and the federal governments. Its goals were twofold: • First, to expose high school students to a number of job, career and education opportunities (3,000 students were bused to the event). • Second, to provide an opportunity for the underemployed or unemployed to find opportunities for gainful longterm employment, or to go back to school to get the education they need to move forward. What was interesting about this fair were the number of companies that were looking for workers. Companies looking to hire workers outnumbered the education institutions by at least five to one.

SCHOOL’S IN

Jane Muskens As I suspected there were many companies looking for qualified trades workers. Many of these were from Fort McMurray, Grande Prairie and other locations throughout Alberta. These employers were looking for welders, electricians, heavy duty mechanics, oil and gas technicians, and construction supervisors, to name a few. To attract skilled trades workers many were offering signing bonuses, profit sharing, excellent benefit packages that include things beyond medical and dental (100

per cent prescription drug coverage and vision care), group RRSP with company matches, life insurance including accidental death insurance, and most advertised above industry wages. One company was offering welders a minimum of $60 per hour to start with extra pay for overtime. But it wasn’t just trades people that were in demand. Another shortage that you don’t hear about that much is drivers. All sorts of companies are looking for drivers and were willing to pay for the training required to get a Class One license. One company in particular was looking for an entire range of drivers from school bus, coach service (transporting workers in and out of the oil fields), and emergency responders. This company (one of many) transports five mil-

lion passengers annually and to do so needs 700 drivers, 190 shop personnel and 130 operations people. Their rep at the career fair told me they were always hiring. Besides these job opportunities there were also a number of other companies looking for workers. This included the retail sector such as clothing

stores, grocery stores and restaurants. Another area represented at the fair was the public service; occupations such as bus drivers, paramedics and police officers. And finally there was health care, where education institutions were showcasing their health programs along with a number of organizations

looking for practical nurses and care aides. After visiting this fair, it is clearly an employees’ market, if you are willing to get the right training to meet the needs of employers. ••• On Nov. 4, Okanagan College will be hosting its annual Career Fair, similar to the one I attended in Edmonton.

If you are interested in finding ways to get the training required to meet the current job market and to talk to employers looking to hire, I would recommend you attend this fair next month. Jane Muskens is the registrar at Okanagan College. jmuskens@okanagan.bc.ca

Sicilian vegetable treat discovered

M

y friend Benny De Rosa, from De Rosa Vineyards and B&B on Ogden Road in West Kelowna, showed me his Sicilian serpentine squash the other day, and I can honestly say I have never seen anything like it. It’s a bit like zucchini in that it is long and thin, but that’s where the comparison ends. Benny has it growing on a trellis as if it were a cucumber vine so not only is it a great culinary item it is quite ornamental. Its leaves are about the size of a typical cucumber leaf and its flowers are pure white instead of the yellow that normally cucurbits produce; it is this trait that tells us it is actually a gourd. The fruit itself is long, averaging two to three feet, narrow and twisted like a snake. Another name for this interesting vegetable is Cucuzzi, and there are several interesting recipes for it to be found on the Internet. ••• We have not had a significant drop of rain since July and it is beginning to show. Hopefully, we will have enough snowfall to replenish things for next year. I was doing a walkabout recently and noticed some established trees showing signs of water stress. The only irrigation available to them was a couple of drip tubes placed at the base of the trunk. There is a common misconception that water is to be applied there which couldn’t be more wrong. The tree needs water over a general area from about a couple of feet from the trunk to at least the drip line; the distance to where the branches of the tree extend.

For program information please contact Jennifer White at 250.860.9729 (ext. 4822) or email Jennifer.white@sd23.bc.ca

We checked for moisture at the base of the trunk and it was wet, however, when we dug a few feet away the ground was bone dry. The water used on this tree was virtually wasted as it just drained down below the tree and never reached the root Don platter. If the same amount of water had Burnett been distributed properly the tree would not have been in stress. ••• Don’t forget to take advantage of the fabulous garden waste recycling bins provided by the municipalities. This is fall cleanup time and there are only a few more pickups before the season ends and the snow flies. Leaves, grass clippings small prunings and the tops from all your herbaceous perennial plants can be put into the bin, however soil, turf, and large prunings should not. Also keep dog droppings, meat scraps, rocks, construction lumber and metals out of the bin. Common sense prevails. ••• I would like to extend my deepest sympathies to the Goode family who recently lost their wonderful matriarch Shirley Goode tragically in an auto accident. I was honoured to be able to attend the service and was touched by the many family members who gave testimony as to the wonderful person Shirley was. In particular, when her dear granddaughter Amy described the relationship she and her grandmother shared, there was not a dry eye in the congregation.

Thinking Gellatly Nut Farm inventory ahead to project receives $15,000 grant creating a New Year’s gala Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

Do you have a great idea for New Year’s Eve? Want to share it with the rest of the city? Festivals Kelowna is crowdsourcing ideas via Facebook to find the next brilliant festival move for the first citywide New’s Eve celebration in a decade. “Really, this is what we do. Festivals Kelowna provides free, familyfriendly entertainment,â€? said Renata Mills, executive director of Festivals Kelowna. The event will be run on Eastern Standard Time, or from 6 to 9 p.m., in order to allow for an earlyto-bed countdown to midnight. Mills said the Festivals Kelowna crew are planning the staple live entertainment, food and activities and will hold the event in Stuart Park near the ice rink. What they’re asking the public for is the special extras. “We might want to drop a silver ball from the flagpole, for exampleâ€? said Mills, noting they have already received a suggestion for a bonfire, which would be fun if it weren’t for the parameters of the park. “As a parent of small children, it’s kind of nice if you can just take them somewhere for a few hours,â€? Mills explained. â€œâ€ŚI think people are looking to just gather around and almost assume this public space together.â€? As the organizing body behind the Parks Alive! performances in the city’s parks every summer, the buskers and events like the city-wide Canada Day celebration, Festivals Kelowna has plenty of experience planning largescale events; although, the last News Year’s Eve celebration was in 2003. The easiest route to contribute ideas is to log onto the Festivals Kelowna Facebook page, but you can also email Mills at rmills@festivalskelowna.com.

Wade Paterson STAFF REPORTER

The legacy of Jack Gellatly is one that should be celebrated. That was the message from speakers at a TD Green Streets Launch Event at Gellatly Nut Farm Regional Park Wednesday. TD Friends of the Environment Foundation and Tree Canada selected the Regional District of the Central Okanagan to receive $15,000 for a Gellatly Nut Farm heritage tree inventory and nut orchard management plan. The funds will go toward an inventory of over 600 tees and 1,179 hazelnut shrubs, preparation of the nut orchard management plan and future establishment of a nut tree

arboretum in the park. Unique numbered metal tags will be assigned to each tree and information will be gathered about every plant in Gellatly Nut Farm Regional Park. The database of information will assist regional district park services staff to link some of the historical records of David and Jack Gellatly’s original nut tree breeding trials and existing Gellatly tree varieties growing in various arboretums, botanical gardens and private nurseries across North America to the tree inventory. Bruce Blackwell, principal of B.A. Blackwell & Associates Ltd., the consultant working on the inventory, said the inventory will also look at the trees’ attributes, health characteristics and proximity.

He said observations have already been made how various changes to practices and the movement of certain trees could improve their health. “We’ve also recognized this historical perspective that really hasn’t been documented to the extent that it can be,� said Blackwell. “Hopefully through the management plan we’ll improve some of the historical documentation around where the nuts have gone and where some of the genetic material resides.� Murray Kopp, director of park services for the regional district, said the work is “very important to the success of Gellatly Nut Farm Regional Park.� TD Green Streets is a national program that sup-

The entrance will be closed for about six weeks starting this week. A new entrance and public access corridor will open on Nov. 12. There will be no change to the Emergency patient dropoff. Patients requiring emergency treatment can be dropped off at the Emergency Department entrance on Royal Avenue.

Non-emergency patients may be dropped off at one of three entrances: For the lab building (Dr. Walter Anderson Building), take the elevator to the third floor and walk across Pandosy Skywalk to access the Centennial Building and the rest of the KGH site. For the main hospital entrance (Centennial Building), drop patients off at the main entrance off Pandosy Street. For the west side of KGH (Royal Building), drop patients off at the west entrance accessible from Strathcona Avenue.

NEWS ▼ OKANAGAN COLLEGE

Relevance of college to students reflected by continual rise in enrolment Okanagan College’s overall fall enrolments have grown again, setting the stage for the institution to exceed provincial targets for another year. A snapshot of fall enrolment, taken in midSeptember, shows overall enrolment has increased by about 1.6 per cent at Okanagan College. Each fall, the college takes a snapshot of its enrolment in mid-September. While a gauge of how the year is shaping up for the institution, it doesn’t tell the whole story. Many of the college’s programs, especially in trades and continuing studies, start later in the fall, after the stable enrolment date. This fall’s stable enrolment data show 6,117 students registered at the college’s four campuses and in Distance Education courses on Sept. 14.) The numbers don’t

come as a surprise to Okanagan College president Jim Hamilton, who notes that the college is on track for exceeding provincial targets for the eighth year in a row. “We didn’t expect a big jump this year,” Hamilton said. “High school graduation numbers dropped by two per cent within our region over the past year and the employment situation has improved in the Okanagan, and there were no other developments that would drive a significant change in the enrolment pattern.” Campuses in Salmon Arm, Kelowna and Penticton each saw modest increases in their student headcount while Vernon saw a slight decrease. “The interesting thing is that while Vernon’s overall student numbers fell to 725 students from 756, the number of course registrations grew slight-

ly (from 3,252 last year to 3,260 this year),” observedNorth Okanagan regional dean Jane Lister. Penticton’s student numbers rose to 601 this fall, from 597 last year, while Salmon Arm’s grew to 340 from 320. Kelowna’s student numbers increased to 4,228 from 4,214. Distance education course registrations grew to 1,159 from 1,048. “We really need to emphasize that this only tells part of the story,” explained Okanagan College registrar Jane Muskens. “These numbers don’t capture the students who are enrolled in a very important part of our business—Continuing Studies certificates—and don’t cover off the enrolments in programs that start later in the fall, next January, February or in the summer.” “We know, for exam-

ple, that there are another 923 students who are enrolled this fall in continuing studies certificates. “They will be a part of our comparative report next year.” Okanagan College calculates and reports on total enrolment each spring in its reports to the provincial government. “For each of the past seven years of our existence, we have exceeded the targets set for us by the provincial government in terms of student spaces and credentials awarded,” noted Hamilton. “We anticipate that this will be our eighth year.” To illustrate the difference between the fall enrolment snapshot and the annual tally of students taking courses at Okanagan College, approximately 20,235 people took courses and programs at Okanagan College over the last academic year. That equates to almost one person in every 20 who live in the region.

Nationally acclaimed local authors Nancy Holmes and Anne Fleming will launch their latest books tonight (Thursday), 7 p.m., at the downtown Kelowna branch of the Okanagan Regional Library. Nancy Holmes’s new book of poems is The Flicker Tree. Her poems explore society’s complicity in the destruction of, and love for wild animals, plants and places. Anne Fleming’s third book is a collection of short fiction entitled Gay Dwarves of America. There are no gay dwarves in Gay Dwarves of America, but there’s a mother of a teen with dwarfism who worries he might be gay, a parasitologist named Edna who longs for the love of a certain young woman, a boy on a unicycle, and a hockey mom in Toronto who pretends to be Swiss. This free community event is the first of the 2012-13 Visiting Author Series events to be held in downtown Kelowna.

Business outlook starting to look very positive T his part of the year, as summer fades to fall, has been a waterfall of wonderful, exciting actions in our regional landscape, leaving me very excited and proud to be a resident of our beautiful valley. Everywhere I have turned in recent weeks and looking at what is coming up in the weeks ahead, entrepreneurship initiatives have or will be set in motion to achieve positive socio-economic outcomes for local residents today and for the years to come. It feels like the aura of an “Okanagan Call To Action” that will undoubtedly unleash our entrepreneurial spirit. I wanted to highlight a few key thoughts that may guide all of us during the balance of 2012 and carry us into 2013, the future for the promotion of the entrepreneurial spirit.

Catharine Goheen is looking to make another delivery of donated eyeglasses this year, this time for children in Cameroon, Africa. This month, Goheen, owner of Dr. Specs Optical, will be headed to Africa as a Rotary volunteer to evaluate a service club project in Cameroon. “While there, it is an excellent opportunity to deliver glasses to the areas that are in the greatest need,” Goheen said. Goheen leaves Oct. 10, so she has one week to fill two suitcases with eyeglasses. “It is my belief that empowering people to be independent and work is a benefit to their families, communities, and their counties’ economy,” she said. Reading glasses, prescription and non prescription sunglasses, bifocals and progressive or distant glasses can be dropped off at Dr. Specs Optical in Orchard Plaza, 250-861-1585.

Young people: Don’t wait to start planning for your retirement

W

hen should you start planning for retire-

ment? I was recently looking through a study conducted by Leger Marketing (2011) on behalf of the BMO Retirement Institute. One of the ‘not so startling’ conclusions was that young adults (YAs) under the age of 35 are the least prepared for retirement. In fact, this study revealed that 27 per cent of them have not saved at all

INVESTMENT INSIGHTS

Robert Oleksyn for retirement. Not a single penny! Ironically, the study also found that as many as 41 per cent of them expect to retire early. Is this really a surprise to anybody? My initial gut reaction

was that YAs are the least prepared for retirement because, in all probability, their retirement date is the furthest away. My second recollection was the financial planning certainty that the earlier people start to save for retirement, the greater the potential that they will achieve future financial security. So why is this incongruity between their retirement expectations and their retirement plan happening? In my opinion, there

are a few reasons that YAs aren’t preparing for their retirement yet. First of all, living now may be ranked higher than retiring later. The combined effect of consumerism, higher student debt, under employment and lower real wages may help to explain why so many YAs have decided to postpone moving out of their parent’s home, getting married, having children and contributing to a RRSP. Second, I think that fragile global econo-

mies and real estate crashes may have also caused them to be skeptical and hesitant about investing their newly earned money. The problem for them is that these trends could easily translate into years of lost lifetime income and compounding returns, which could place YAs at significant risk of not saving enough for retirement. Third, I also believe that YAs are finding it difficult to picture retirement.

DAYS of CARING Thank you to the many volunteers who make Maxine DeHart’s Ramada Hotel Drive-Thru Breakfast a big success every year! 2012 marks the 15th Anniversary of this United Way Signature Event, and many hands make light work. Funds raised support 28 United Way Community Partner Charities.

I realize that it is difficult for anyone to accurately predict how much they will spend during their retirement; however, this is a critical starting point before any appropriate savings plan can be established. Finally, the study found that when the YAs seek information on retirement planning, they tend to speak about it with family and friends and generally only in passing. Although their friends and family may have wisdom and knowledge about many things, they are unlikely to have the tools, the experience and the knowledge on these topics that credible financial planning professionals have. I can tell you from experience that I rarely talk to anyone who has calculated how much they need to save or what rate of return they need to earn to retire the way they want

to. We will certainly get old. We will certainly need money when we retire and we will certainly think about our retirement planning decisions. If that’s the case, then it doesn’t matter how old you are. The best age for planning for retirement is right now so you can make your best selections from your available choices.

How to stop feeding bad emotional addictions

O

ur emotional state creates specific chemical messengers called peptides that allow our cells to communicate with one another. Every different peptide fits into a specific receptor site on the cell wall that is designed like a lock and key fit, releasing specific chemicals throughout our body. And just like any other chemical dependency, we can become addicted to specific emotions. If we are used to feeling guilty or not good enough, indeed we will go out of our way to experience these feelings in order to create a feeling of “normalcy.” And just like an addict needing a fix of their drug of choice, we quite unconsciously fall into thinking and feeling habits to feed the addiction, which allows us to stay within what we are chemically conditioned to, otherwise known as our “habit zone.” And that’s where my

EMOTIONAL RESCUE

Annie Hopper story begins. Like many of you, I have worked long and hard on healing old beliefs that do not support me anymore. This has, for the most part, curbed my appetite for specific peptides, especially the ones that cause feelings of inadequacy. However, every once in awhile I can get still get triggered. In fact, last week I could feel myself bellying up to the all-you-can-eat, self-sabotaging buffet. The combination of a fabulous new opportunity, combined with a little bit of self doubt and stress, created a perfect storm to trigger the old familiar feeling of inadequacy. It was enough of a negativity hit to call on

the entire cavalry of selfsabotaging thoughts and accompanying feelings into action. The self-doubt quickly escalated into the “I am not good enough” belief—that one got really messy and stubborn to let go of. I decided that the best course of action to combat this chemical hit would be to go to the gym and work it off. But apparently the “I’m not good enough” receptors had not been fed enough yet. Unfortunately, this manifested as an all out war in my head, which started with a wardrobe crisis. Suddenly, I had to look good to go and sweat at the gym. It seemed like every outfit that I normally wore didn’t look good on me and I felt 15 pounds heavier than normal—even though I weighed the same as usual. My addicted mind shouted at me: “How could I possibly go to the gym looking like this!”

EDUCATIONAL TOUR…Red Cross disaster relief manager Jodie Densmore (right) led a tour of the new Red Cross headquarters on Adams Road last week, one of the stops for the United Way Seeing Is Believing Campaign Bus Tour on Sept. 27. The tour was an opportunity for the public and corporate donors to visit some of the United Way community partner agencies in the Central Okanagan and see what a difference United Way funding makes for these agencies to provide public services. “Enough, enough,” a healthier part of me reassured myself. “Just put something on and go out the door. Back slowly away from the mirror and do not look into it again.” But with one more peek and a disapproving look at myself in the mirror I was on my way. A part of me just

wanted to stay home and indulge the negativity. And yet, somehow, I forced myself out the door and into the car. Suddenly I remembered what I would normally say to myself in moments of self-doubt: “In this moment, how can I love myself even more?” Oh how my brain did

not want to indulge in this thought. But I stayed with it and eventually won the battle. In that very moment, I decided to focus on the many blessings in my life, along with my accomplishments, and generated feelings of gratitude and love. By the time I arrived at the gym I had done a

180 in attitude and feeling, along with a new understanding of how addictive a negative feeling can be. If mental noise somehow burned off calories, surely I would be an Olympic athlete. Annie Hopper is a limbic system rehabilitation specialist. info@dnrsystem.com

Forget the ’Net, ’zine creators Looper a ‘down want you to flip the literal pages and dirty’

Even with the Xerox machine on the way out, today’s artsies still sometimes eschew video, blogs and digital animation for the aesthetic appeal of paper. Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

In a way, the Heartbreak issue of Kelowna’s new ’zine is an environmental effort. Sure, it’s producing a stack of paper in an era when waste reduction seems to involve a multifaceted vernacular of “-cycling” derivatives to make the old seem new. By and large, the creative world is obsessed with the Internet and the idea of faxing someone feels synonymous with

CONTRIBUTED

ARTS STUDENT Lucas Glenn (front left) and science major Jeff Ellom (front right) have been working on a ’zine along with fine arts students Brit Bachman (back left) and Corie Waugh (back right). calling someone’s beeper. And yet, a group of artsy UBCO students seem to revere the photocopier in the way a mimeograph

might once have seemed kitsch or a nostalgic music fan might seek out an 8-track. So they saved one from the trash. “When I heard they were getting rid of the Xerox (in the Rotary Centre), I was like: ‘No, we could use that,’” says Brit Bachman, as the group behind the mission open the doors on a fundraiser

for paper costs. The students have been hard at work in studio space at the Rotary Centre for the Arts, shaping a publication reminiscent of the ’80s and ’90s pre-blog craze. Those who stop to read the little magazine will not be heartbroken for having made the effort. Chock-full of whim-

sical, funny commentary on love, loss and the space between, the vignette’s should, at the very least, remind the world of days when a breakup might involve a note, not a neverending text battle or dumping a Facebook friend. While there are ’zine libraries, a few professionalized publications and alternative bookstores that sell the generally bookletsize magazines, the movement is an intentionally do-it-yourself driven concept. From poems to fiction to citizen journalism, ’zines present an alternate viewpoint to anything required to earn money —and with creative flare. “We would really love to participate in the ’zine festivals and stuff. Maybe travel the world,” said Bachman with a big smile. The first issue was entitled “One 11” and the second the “True/False” issue. This collection includes and a funny little note stating the issue’s theme had one contributor thinking about girls too much to make any art. One page appears to offer an interesting illustration of a heart playing coy, composed of koi fish, but the very next page reveals the illustrator was actually referencing one of the more heartbreaking love stories of fall. The kokanee salmon return home to mate, then promptly die upon fulfilling their life’s purpose each fall. The ’zines are on sale at the Alternator Centre for Contemporary Art. jsmith@kelownacapnews.com

action movie LOOPER

BEHIND THE SCREEN

T

his is an interesting movie, and fairly bloody take on time travel, where paid assassins kill “bad guys” who have been sent back in time—fascinating as there are no bodies and therefore no crime committed because they actually don’t exist in either world. But, what happens when the assassin himself is the target of the killing, becomes the storyline. When Bruce Willis (old Joe) who plays the older version of Joseph Gordon-Levitts’ (young Joe) character, meet it is not a good thing and the show really heats up. Looper opened the Toronto International Film Festival to great reviews. Those of us who were fans of Back to The Future, generally love everything that even remotely resembles time-travel—there is something romantic about the ability to travel back or forwards in time. Could we change the past? Could we alter the future? Well, Looper tries to do both in a gritty, murderous way. This is another show with lots of violence, which flips between 2014 and 2044 and if this is any indication, 2044 doesn’t look like a whole lot of fun. Willis, whose movies collectively have made in excess of $2.5 billion, looks older and really out

Susan Steen of shape and lacks the steely, devil-may-care, attitude that we have come to know him by. And Joseph Gordon-Levitt is not as jaded as one might image he would be, considering he plays an outright killer. Emily Blunt (of The Devil Wears Prada fame) plays Sara, mother to Cid, played amazingly by Pierce Gagnon (One Tree Hill and The Way Home, among other roles.) There’s not many funny lines in this one, but here’s one I thought had merit: “This job doesn’t attract the most forward thinking people.” Looper has action, a unique storyline and good acting, and is written and directed by Rian Johnson. Looper is down and dirty, with action and a unique storyline, so if you are not yet tired of gratuitous killing, then it’s worth seeing right to the surprising and heroic ending. I give Looper 3 1/2 reels.

QThe Lake O’Hara Wilderness Experience

Looking Down on the World BY JULIA HRYNIUK - STUDENT As a student attending Okanagan Mission Secondary School, I have always dreamed of going into my Grade 12 year and experiencing all of the spectacular grad events OKM organizes for their Grade 12 students. This past week over one hundred students, including myself, experienced, quite possibly, the most legendary and anticipated grad trip of the year, the week long adventure into some of Canada’s most stunning National Parks, otherwise known as the Lake O’Hara Trip.

Students are asked to choose a partner and from there, are then separated into groups consisting of six to eight students and two chaperones. After months of preparation, the students take buses out to Rogers Pass where the journey begins. The groups of students and chaperones are spread out over four different National Parks and complete at least one major hike a day for the next six days. Although I have done other backpacking trips and seen some gorgeous scenery, I have never experienced the almost indescribable

mountainous scenery that I witnessed while on Lake O’Hara. The hikes that my group went on seemed so surreal; I never thought that in my life I would be able to climb to the peak of a mountain, but this trip has proved me wrong. Throughout the week of backpacking through the Rockies and staying in some of the most amazing cabins nestled in the mountains I learned not only about the others in my group, but about myself. I gained knowledge of my abilities and how far out of my comfort zone I could re-

ally push. I realized that no matter how difficult the trail was, or how uncomfortable the tent was, everyone simply dealt with it. This taught me a lifelong lesson of tolerance and endurance that I will most definitely carry with me for the rest of my life. I’m sure that all the other students that went on this trip of a lifetime had similar experiences to mine and witnessed the breathtaking scenery I was fortunate enough to observe as well. At the end of the trip it’s such a shock to come back to reality and settle back into

everyday life, but looking back on what was such a phenomenal experience, I wouldn’t have changed anything. I loved getting to know the others in my group, seeing all the unreal sights and looking down on the world while I was on top of

a mountain. However, none of this would have been possible without the dedication of our fearless leader and organizer Mr. Mike Ross. So, on behalf of the OKM Grad Class of 2013, I would love to thank him for such an epic adventure of a lifetime.

Making a Difference Step by Step Larger than Life BY MICHAEL ROSS - TEACHER

The Lake O’ Hara hiking process takes about seven months from the first orientation meeting to the final pot luck dinner/slide show celebration. Like anything that develops over time with sustained effort, the results are extraordinary, profound and I dare say noble. There is real transformation on the steep mountain sides of the Selkirks and Rockies. This trek is a modern day walkabout to shepherd adolescents into adulthood. The mountains are the most formidable teachers of tolerance, resilience and tenacity. Grit, determination in the face of obstacles, is not taught, it is earned with each step and drop of sweat on the trail. The culmination of steps over the week result in more than 50 kilometers of wilder-

ness exploration, climbing more than 3 kilometers in elevation and a renewed sense of purpose and belonging. Every year 100 or more teenagers, with 30 plus chaperones, complete a pilgrimage to our sacred wilderness places. The national parks of Banff, Yoho, Kooteneay and Glacier are Canada’s cathedrals. The grace, beauty and glory of these areas are preserved for all to encounter for all time to come. The students, teachers and community members involved with OKM’s Lake O’Hara program are the most recent stewards of these spaces. Since 1977, Okanagan Mission Secondary School has put approximately 3,500 students and 900 adults through the magical pro-

cess that extends their comfort zones and illuminates their potential beyond the confinements of fear. This year we had record high temperatures of 28 degrees during the day and lows of 5 degrees at night. The glacier of Illecillewaet has retreated 1.6 km in the past 120 years. The glacier run off was fast and melting full throttle. The pace of glacier retreat has accelerated in the past 10 years and continues along that trend. I wondered, as we ate lunch overlooking the massive yet fragile ice field, if it would be there in 100 years. The students learned that they can survive with their bedroom, kitchen and pantry in their backpacks. They learned that stuff is heavy and steals your time. They learned that, in the end, the immaterial things matter like laughter and happiness. They learned that relationships are not disposable like plastic cups. They learned that they are not alone and that others care about them. They learned that wisdom and beauty come with effort and trust. Finally they learned that making a difference begins with one small step.

Allergic to Exercise BY TASHA ELY - STUDENT I was apprehensive of being stuck in the wilderness with classmates I didn’t really know, with the possibility of encountering a grizzly bear, when I signed up for Lake O’Hara. My brother—claiming that it was the best time of his life—swayed me though. In retrospect I should have taken into account that he was a guy and liked knives and burning things. But I didn’t, so I found myself on a four hour bus ride to Glacier National park where I would embark on the most challenging week of my life. I’m not being melodramatic when I say that it was physical and mental torture. The week was filled with long, 4-5 hour hikes up the side of a mountain where you would have to fight every negative thought telling you that it wasn’t possible, that you should give up. The first two days were especially hard for me. I literally begged to go home, I told Mr. Ross that it wasn’t that I didn’t want to do it, I couldn’t.

And for the first couple days I believed that. Until I made it to the Asulkan hut which is at an elevation of 2100 meters and at the end of a gravelly steep trail situated on a skinny ridge where you could plummet to your death (slight exaggeration but there would be broken bones for sure). Cresting that trail was easily the highlight of the whole trip for me. Words cannot describe the elation I felt as I finally got to drop my heavy backpack and lay in the fresh glacier water creek soaking in the sun, beautiful snow covered mountains surrounding me. That night we brought some of the foam mattresses outside and lay beneath the star filled sky where we pointed out constellations and satellites. After that the rest of the trip seemed less odious, like I could actually get through it. So if someone were to ask me what Lake O’Hara was like I would say that it was the most challenging, grueling and draining week of my life. But it also taught me that I can do anything if I want it bad enough. And I’m pretty sure any other challenge I face now will pale in comparison to the Perley Rock Trail (11.6 KM of suffering).

Experiences BY ALYSON HRYNIUK - PARENT CHAPERONE Recently I had the honor of chaperoning the grade 12 Lake O’Hara adventure. The group I had the privilege to spend the week with, six seventeenyear-old girls and Mike Ross, had spectacular scenery and weather while hiking throughout Glacier National Park. The girls were amazing; I believe they all surpassed what they believed they were physically and emotionally capable off. It was with great pride and much motivation that we would support the girls as they pushed their limits each day. We hiked up to five hours one way and often the return trip was more overwhelming with the steep decent. The beauty of the Illecillewaet and Asulkan Glaciers is truly a national treasure. The mountains were peaceful and spectacular, the fact that we had no electronics added to the bliss. I can’t remember the last time I’ve seen my own daughter without her cell phone or laptop! The obstacles we all over came, including electronic with-

drawal, were as spectacular as the mountains we were hiking in! The sheer excitement at the beginning of the trip wore off quickly as the daunting task of our hikes loomed before us. However, the exhilaration of reaching our goal each day, no matter how tired we were, inspired us. The absolute beauty of our surroundings and the determination of the group didn’t cease to amaze me at any given moment. I feel so very fortunate to have had this once in a lifetime opportunity with not only my daughter, but also a remarkable group of girls. We shared many largerthan-life experiences that I

Pitch Perfect sleeper hit of summer

OCT. 5 - OCT. 11

eptember is usually a pretty quiet movie month, but this year it ended with some excitement. Hotel Transylvania was expected to perform well but did even better than predictions and Looper’s great reviews help draw in a strong audience, which are spreading the word.

MOVIE GUY

Rick Davis However, it is Pitch Perfect that could be stealing the spotlight this weekend. It opened in limited release last weekend, playing on one tenth the number of screens as either Transylvania or Looper, but brought in more per screen than either of them. And while Taken 2 and Frankenweenie will still likely be the top movies over the weekend, Pitch Perfect is increasing its number of theatres tenfold and this light, quirky comedy could be the sleeper hit of the fall. In what looks like Mean Girls mixed with Glee, Anna Kendrick (Up in the Air) stars as that girl who would rather listen to what’s coming out of her headphones than to anyone else in the world. At her new college, she does not fit into any of the cliques but gets muscled into the one that would have been her last choice: an eclectic group of girls whose only commonality is how good they sound when they sing together. While Kendrick is the star, a lot of the buzz around this feel-good movie is around the music and supporting characters, particularly Rebel Wilson (What to Expect While You’re Expecting), who stars in her breakout role as Fat Amy. Taken 2 will likely take the top spot this weekend as anticipation

It continues the story of Neeson’s character of retired CIA agent Bryan Mills and his family who are trying to patch things up after the events of the first movie. While on vacation in Istanbul, he and his wife are kidnapped by the father of one of the kidnappers Mills killed while rescuing his daughter in the first movie. To escape, he must enlist the help of his daugh-

ter as well as the same advanced fighting skills to get his family to safety. It will be interesting to see which gothic animated movie hurts more this weekend. Will Frankenweenie take a hit because it is being released only a week after Hotel Transylvania or will the storytelling prowess of Tim Burton take a bite out of the success of its competition? Twenty-eight years ago, a then-unknown Burton made a black-and-

white short film called Frankenweenie for Disney. The studio fired him after it was completed claiming that he had wasted company resources by making a film that was too scary for young audiences. Only after Burton’s success with Beetlejuice and Batman did it see the light of day on video and subsequently as an extra feature on The NightSee Davis B5

STYLE what’s what s in?

WARDROBE Double duty

By Sam Hill, Contributor B

From the field to the boardroom, without the outfit change. Ever struggled to purchase workout clothing because of that expensive price tag? Guilty con conscience, no more. Just because it is intended for the field or the hot room doesn’t mean that’s where it has to stay. Here are some tips on how to make your work-out clothes look stylish outside of the gym, the class, and the field – without the sweat. Those fitted crops you wear to yoga? sears.ca How perfect they fit insside tall riding boots. Finish o off the outfit with a cozy knit ssweater and you have the perfect ensemble for the chilly fall walk between classes. Pair that bright, colourful long sleeve that you wear to boot camp with a puffy vest and skinny cargo pants or jeans to be comfortable and warm while running errands all day. To style that loose, slouchy top that your wear to soccer practice, layer a long blazer overtop and belt the two together. Add a fitted skirt on the bottom, some fun

heels, and most importantly – a sassy sock bun, for a classy look that you can wear to an interview or meeting. Finally ladies, those spandex shorts you wear to volleyball… They are the perfect layer underneath that super short dress that you wear to the bar on Saturday. (If anything, please take that last tip seriously. No Lindsay Lohans here!) Work-out clothing can be expensive, but it is totally worth it if you know how to get the most use out of them!

Six am bootcamp seems to come a little to quickly if you ask me. So roll out of bed and throw on a lightweight, anti-bacterial top to keep those sweaty germs at bay and pair with some loose fitting shorts or body hugging compression tights. Both of which are great for a high sweat work out. Quick dry, too! Who would of thought! Bed head? Not today! Find a silicon lined head band to hold back all of the strays. Break a leg! Finally my favourite one of all! Yes I’m talking to all my yogis out there. Stopping at The Hot Box’s lunchbox power class? Well don’t forget to pack a moisture wicking tank and your spandex shorts for your super sweaty endeavors. Make sure they will wick your sweat away from your body and offer plenty of stretch for warrior pose. Another option for an un-heated class is a fitted pair of leggings that will most importantly look cute, but also allow you to move into even the most bendy poses. Namaste!

Burton resurrects Skilled volunteers are award winners Frankenweenie Dawn Wilkinson

to end with minor and major tasks. A skill-based approach works. Why not try it?

CONTRIBUTOR

Have you heard this comment? ‘I don’t have time for this administrative stuff, I’d like to get a volunteer to do it.’ If you hear this type of comment in your organization, pay attention because it likely means that staff think of volunteers as people who accomplish necessary, but less important work. What typically happens is that volunteer roles are poorly defined and training is minimal. Volunteers are not engaged to understand how their role helps the organization achieve its mission and as a result they quit feeling unfulfilled. Earlier this week, a former volunteer manager confided: “I volunteered for that event once and never again; they wasted my time, offered no training and ignored what I did for them.” Why not use a skillbased volunteering approach? Think about the work in terms of the per-

sonal talents, professional skills, experience and education required. Chunk the job into blocks of time, project steps or sections of content. Add flexibility, selfscheduling and input into how the work is done and you have gone a long to recruiting and retaining committed volunteers. Laurel D’Andrea and Beryl Itani each recently won Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medals for their extensive volunteerism in our community. Congratulations, Laurel and Beryl. I am privileged to work with both of these award winners on the Volunteer Fair Steering Committee and have learned a great deal from them.

“YOU GO IN AND I’LL SURROUND THE HOUSE” Dan attended worship at Grace Lutheran faithfully for the last three years. As soon as he arrived at church, he went immediately to his seat at the very back of the sanctuary. He was generally the first one out the door when service was over. His health was compromised and he had to minimize contact. Dan loved to attend worship on Sundays; poor health and bad weather were the only things that kept him away. Despite his limitations, Dan did manage to get to know some of the people who sat around him. Upon his recent passing, friends, relatives and congregants who were acquainted with him came out to pay their respects. During his memorial, it was revealed that, as a young man, Dan had moved from Vancouver to Montreal to study medicine at McGill University. During his time at McGill, he was bitten by the acting bug. After two years of study, he left McGill for Hollywood, California. He had landed an acting contract with a Hollywood studio. He was assigned small parts, mostly in Western movies and TV series like Maverick, Gunsmoke and others. He even had a small part in the epic movie “Spartacus”. Most of the people who got to know Dan at church had no idea that he was once a professional actor. He did not talk about his acting career much. He revealed his Hollywood career to me in conversations we had. He liked to share his favorite line from a western movie he had acted in. It went like this: “You go in and I’ll surround the house.” When I learned about his acting career, Dan instantly became my hero. I love westerns. I always have and always will. I grew up watching westerns on TV. My Saturday mornings were filled with the Roy Rogers Show, Rifle Man, Have Gun Will Travel, and Maverick.” Sunday evenings always included Gunsmoke and Bonanza. I could not get enough of the westerns. There was always a villain. The villain always coveted land that belonged to others. He would never dream of paying a fair price for the land. The villain used his “goons” to terrorize the peaceful farmers or ranchers, steal the marketready cattle, or cut off the water supply in an effort to run them off their land. Another favorite tactic was to indebt the farmers and ranchers and then foreclose on the loans when a drought or other disaster prevented them from harvesting their crop and paying off their debt. The settlers always lacked the resolve and skills necessary to defeat the evil villain. They needed someone else to save them. They needed someone to whom they could, like Dan’s character, say: “You go in and I’ll surround the house.” They needed a savior to save them from the clutches of evil. Every western had a hero who stood for peace, justice and fairplay who became their savior. He “went in” and fought the villain and his minions while the settlers “surrounded the house.”

The hero always won in the end. I love westerns so very much because they mirror life and always and consistently point their audience to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Like the lawabiding farmers and ranchers we always live in shadows cast by villains. We are constantly tempted by circumstances and other people to take shortcuts, to lie, cheat, steal and violate the trust and faith our loved ones and friends put in us. We can become enslaved by work, success, money, fame, tobacco, alcohol and all manner of illegal and prescription drugs. We live in the shadow of death. The villains we call age, accident, illness, and man-made and natural disasters, dog us and can produce our demise at any time. The Devil, the evil one, covets our hearts, minds and souls and takes action to take ownership of them. Many doubt the Devil’s existence. The horrific acts individuals, and even whole segments of society, inflict on others is evidence that demand the verdict that the Devil is real. Like the victims in the classic western, we know we cannot escape the power of sin, death and the Devil. We know we do not have what it takes to save ourselves. We need a savior to “go in” and fight our villains while we “surround the house.” The Gospel lesson read at Dan’s memorial service came from the 11th chapter of John’s Gospel, verses 1727and 38-44. Chapter 11 reveals villainy at work in the town of Bethany. The villain of disease had attacked a friend of Jesus, a man named Lazarus. Disease had carried Lazarus right to death’s door. His sisters, Mary and Martha, knew that they could not save Lazarus. Lazarus needed a real savior to go in and fight the villain of illness. The sisters sent messengers to find Jesus. They found him in a town not far away and begged him to come. Jesus tarried in the neighboring town. He stayed away four days. The villain disease carried Lazarus through death’s door. His sisters buried Lazarus in a tomb. A large stone was rolled across the entrance. When Jesus finally arrived at Bethany, both sisters confessed that if Jesus had arrived four days earlier, He would have saved their brother. However, sister Martha confessed a new hope: she added,” But I know that even now God will give you whatever you ask.” Jesus responded to her faith with the assurance that Lazarus would rise from the dead. Martha confessed that she believed in the resurrection on the last day, a day that was far off. Jesus brought her back to the present. He said: ““I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?” “Yes, Lord,” she told him, “I believe that you are the Christ, the Son of God, who was to come into the world.” Jesus strengthened her faith by raising Lazarus from the dead. However, no matter how wonderful

and amazing Lazarus’ resurrection was, he was raised to his old life. He was murdered shortly thereafter by Jesus’ opponents. Jesus fought and defeated the villains of sin, death and the Devil by His innocent suffering and death on the cross and His glorious resurrection from the dead. He promises the same resurrection for all sinners who confess their sin, want to be forgiven and who believe in Him. During August, Dan learned that he was being attacked by a villain. The villain that singled Dan out was cancer. The surgeon had to go in and remove the cancer. Dan said yes to the surgery. He confessed that there was a time in his life that he would have been devastated by the news. He would have said, “Why me?” He would have been terrified by the whole process and lived in agonizing fear. He would have been afraid to confront the villain we call cancer. He would have wanted to send someone else in while he surrounded the house. However, Dan was at peace with his decision. He knew he could go into the operating room and confront the villain head on. What happened? Dan knew that God had assigned a role for him to play in life (read Ecclesiastes 3:1-8). Like every good actor, Dan knew that he had to rehearse for his role. Dan knew that what he learned and experienced at Sunday worship was a rehearsal to prepare him for the role God had assigned him to play in the coming days. Dan learned that he was a sinner and needed forgiveness. Dan experienced the forgiveness when he heard the Gospel and received the sacrament of Holy Communion. He learned that Jesus was with him always and would guide him through all the obstacles life threw in Dan’s way. He learned that through Jesus, he could forgive others and ask their forgiveness. Dan knew that he could go into the operating room because Jesus was in front, behind, beside and inside him and promised to save him no matter what happened. Dan did not survive; however, because of Jesus, Dan is not dead, but alive in Christ! Are villains dogging you today? Do you need a savior? Our Savior is with us at Grace every Sunday morning at 9:00 and 10:30. He wants to get to know you, love you and to save you. Come join us. In Christ Pastor Ed

Alberta premier’s inspiration recalled fondly Award winning

S

o there I was, a business student at the University of Calgary in my graduating year (1979-80), thinking what to do after I graduate with a Bachelor of Commerce. There were options, but how to choose? My professors suggested I should go on and apply to Harvard to join their MBA program. Like most people, I was well aware of Harvard’s reputation, but until then I had little idea of the stature of their business school. Not one for passing up an opportunity to conduct a little research for credit, I did what many students would do—began researching their program at the library, which was

Norm Letnick more work than it may sound. Young as I tell myself I still look, there were no Internet or researchfriendly websites in those days. I became familiar with their offerings and some of their outstanding graduates. Imagine my surprise when I discovered that the Alberta premier at the time, Peter Lougheed, was among them. To top up my paper,

there was nothing better than a conversation with a graduate, so why not speak to several? Off I went contacting a number of Harvard graduates who lived in Alberta. Some in the oil patch, some in marketing. And while I made a request to interview the premier, not for a moment did I think his assistants would let me anywhere near him. And even if they were willing to, Lougheed would almost certainly be too busy. I never thought he might actually say yes. So seldom have I been happier, or more surprised, to be wrong. The response to my request was that Lougheed would agree to an interview by telephone

about his experience at the business school, and how it had helped him in his career and public life. The interview went well, lasting a little over 15 minutes. I remember him very fondly not just as a great leader in our country, but also as a person who took the time to talk to a student, to show interest in what I was doing.

wines on display

Coinciding with the Okanagan Fall Wine Festival, Kelowna International Airport (YLW) will showcase the 2012 Lieutenant Governor’s Awards for Excellence in British Columbia Wines by having them on display in the airport’s Departure area. “We are pleased to help celebrate B.C. wines,” said Jenelle Hynes, YLW spokesperson. “With our own VQA wine shop in Departures this was a great tie-in to bring in the Lieutenant Governor’s award-winning wines and display them at YLW. Now, as our guests fly from our airport they will have one more opportunity to view some of the best wines made in our region.” As the representative of the Crown in British Columbia, the Lieutenant Governor is responsible for upholding the constitutional framework of the province, for celebrating, inspiring and connecting British Columbians and for profiling excellence and promoting the history, culture and achievements of the British Columbia and its people. In 2003, the Lieutenant Governor’s Awards for Excellence in British Columbia Wines were established by then-Lieutenant Governor Iona Campagnolo to recognize and honour excellence in the province’s growing wine industry. To be eligible for the competition, wines must be made from 100 per cent grapes grown and processed within British Columbia. Wineries may enter up to four wines in the competition. A tasting panel of distinguished wine judges and critics selects eight to 12 wines that, in their view, have achieved “excellence.” As the competition has evolved, the judges have noted the growing overall quality of B.C. wines and the selection has become more difficult. The Lieutenant Governor visits the winning wineries and personally presents the awards each summer.

and was paid in full by the developer, the condominium complex was seen as no longer a viable location for the piece. As a result, Lobsinger, and Hildebrand began a search for a new location, offering it to various municipalities and organiza-

New youth dance club reaches out to teens With a 21-year-old instructor who relates well to kids, an updated dance form in today’s style of square dancing set to tunes from the pop charts, the Westside Youth Teen Dance Club is holding three free introductory lessons Oct. 9 and 16. Club members gather every week at the Westbank United Church hall, 3672 Brown Rd., starting at 6:30 p.m. The free lessons are intended to show youth and their parents who are unfa-

miliar with the recreation just what it’s like. Brian Elmer, coordinator of the dance club, said, “We have here a most excellent activity for kids to have loads of fun while getting the much-needed fitness component—a solution to the sedentary lives of many young people.” The dance club is featuring dancing in teams of two or more, accenting the modern square dance made up of teams of eight.

“One time, a mom to one of the boys on the dance floor, watching him having fun and moving proficiently, said that this was the only activity in which he showed interest. We’re glad to offer an alternative to traditional recreations for children.” Elmer said dance caller and teacher Dustin McGifford, of West Kelowna, is a 21-year-old Okanagan College student who brings a lot of fun and energy to the dance sessions.

“I’m ecstatic about the kidfriendly music library that he’s presenting, including tunes from One Direction, Katy Perry and Lady Gaga,” Elmer said. The club is planning a Halloween theme night for later this month, and a Christmas dance party is in the works as well. For more information, call 250-768-2694 or email teamdancing@hotmail.com. The club’s website is www.WestsideYouth.squaredance.bc.ca.

also declined the gift. The city parks planner stated in a memo to the city manager and city council, that: “The public art committee did not consider the artwork a good investment of staff time and public funds and felt it did not fit within the policy framework of the committee’s terms of reference.” The District of West Kelowna also looked into housing the sculpture, but the installation costs caused council to shy away form the project. Hildebrandt contends that both Kelowna and West Kelowna highly over-estimated the in-

stallation costs at between $45,000 and $65,000, saying sculptures of a similar scope have been installed for as little as $10,000 with the artist’s supervision Nelson then expressed an interest in the sculpture, but some obstacles had to be overcome in Nelson as well, such as varied opinions about accepting donated artworks from nonNelson residents, site selection and installation costs. An official unveiling of the brass heron is planned for later in October, with both Hildebrandt and Lobsinger invited to attend.

Court case cites how unfair ICBC claim process can be

“Building trust. Driving confidence.”

T

hat above quote is ICBC’s trademark. ICBC spends a lot of money, our money, building a brand of trust and confidence and that trademark is an important part of the branding. Their brand is so important to them that in August 2012, ICBC took its employees to court to protect it. As a form of job action, employees had been including “We work, you drive; we both deserve better” in their email signatures instead of the trademark. ICBC said that it was hurting their brand. They were successful in forcing the employees to continue promoting their brand. Every piece of correspondence, written and electronic, includes that trademark. It is on every page of their web site and every pamphlet they produce. Is there anything

ACHIEVING JUSTICE

Paul Hergott wrong with that? Is there anything wrong with British Columbian’s auto insurer building a brand of trust and confidence? The problem comes from the two hats an insurance company wears. When we suffer an insured loss and go to our insurance company to collect on the benefits we are entitled to, the insurance company actually owes us a duty of fair dealing and for the most part insurance companies live up to that duty. I’m talking about collecting on life insurance, house insurance, collision insurance and other insurance policies. When negotiating a personal injury claim, though, the insurance company is wearing the

hat of the negligent driver’s liability insurance company, not your insurance company. When wearing that hat, the insurance company does not owe us any duty. Leading us to believe any different, in my view, is horrendously problematic. It would be OK if your adjuster clearly told you: “Look, I know that every email or letter I send you says ‘Building trust. Driving confidence.’ But when I am negotiating your personal injury claim, you can’t trust me as far as you can throw me.” Instead, the insurance adjuster will actively build on the brand that you, as a tax and insurance premium payer, have helped create, encouraging you to trust him or her and discouraging you from consulting with a lawyer which is the only way you can get the straight goods about your rights. I jump to clarify that insurance adjusters are wonderful human beings who are simply doing

their job they have been hired to do, which is to pay as little as possible in the settlement of claims. They are following ICBC policy as they are required to do and as ICBC has shown they can force them to do. This results in unfair settlements and, as noted in the recent case of Tolentino v. Gill, 2012 BCSC 1383, the complete loss of claims. Mr. Tolentino’s adjuster had advised him that it was not necessary to have a lawyer while failing to mention that a limitation period was coming up and his right to fair compensation for his injuries would expire in six months if important legal steps were not taken. The judge noted that she was “…disturbed by the adjuster’s approach in this case.” She expressed her view: “…her failure to make any attempt to contact him before the limitation period expired was in my view unreasonable.” The thing is, the law is clear that an insurance ad-

Pilot bird-banding project launched

The Okanagan Valley Goose Management Program will start up a pilot bird-banding program after receiving a grant from the Western Canadian Turfgrass Association. The Okanagan Valley Goose Management Program, which has been working with communities in the Okanagan to manage resident non-migratory Canada geese for the past six years, will use the data complied through the pilot program to better understand the local omovement and nesting patterns of geese. The data will also contribute to understanding population size and survival. Bird-banding is the practice of applying unique markers (bands) to sthe legs of birds. - When a marked bird is observed by a birdwatcher or recovered by a hunter, data on age, survival, habitat use and migratory patterns can be retrieved and analyzed. “Bird-banding is a new and exciting part of the Goose Management Program,” said Kate Hagmeier, coordinator of the Okanagan Valley Goose Management Program. “This pilot provides us with a unique opportunity to come in contact with

the birds, without harming them. “We are very excited to collect the data from the bands and find answers to questions such as what extent do birds mix up and down the valley and where do specific birds nest.” In June, Hagmeier and her team, which included Pete Wise, of Wise Wildlife Control, and Dennis Ingram, of LaHawk Enterprises, received a permit from Environment Canada to capture geese and apply the bands during their flightless period. Using kayaks, geese

on the water were coaxed to shore and into temporary corrals. Each bird was weighed, sexed, banded and then released. Two leg bands were applied to each goose. A standard U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service-Environment Canada metal band was applied to the right leg. This band is engraved with a unique numeric code to help researches track and identify each bird. A coloured plastic leg band was applied to the left to identify the re-

juster negotiating a personal injury claim has no duty to tell you about your rights. When presenting an offer as “fair,” there is no duty to actually make a fair offer. With a limitation period looming, there is no duty to fill you in that your rights to fair compensation will expire with the ticking of the clock. Referring to the adjuster’s failure to make any attempt to contact Mr.

Tolentino before the limitation period expired, the judge concluded: “Although she did not have a legal duty to do so, given her knowledge of the claim, this would have been a more reasonable and fair approach.” The judge had no choice but to dismiss the claim. As I said, the law is clear. The adjuster had no duty to be reasonable and fair. I wish that ICBC was

How to adapt breastfeeding into lifestyle away from home The World Health Organization recommends early initiation and exclusive breastfeeding until six months of age and continued breastfeeding, with the introduction of solid food, for two years or beyond. Breastfeeding has many well-documented benefits for both mothers and babies—bonding

and attachment; protecting mom against breast cancer, ovarian cancer and osteoporosis; and protecting babe against ear infections, respiratory infection and diarrhea. Breastfeeding also promotes babies’ tooth, jaw and brain development and provides optimal nutrition while saving money. Breastfeeding shouldn’t prevent moms and babies from getting

out and enjoying all the activities everyone else is doing. New babies breastfeed a lot so its important to be able to breastfeed comfortably even when away from home. If you are comfortable feeding your little one anywhere that is great. If you are feeling a little shy here are some tips to help you out. The following tips will help make breastfeeding

away from home more comfortable: • Breastfeeding in public is legal and protected by the Human Rights Commission. • Practice at home in front of a mirror. If you are concerned about showing some skin, experiment with different clothes and different positions. Baby will cover much of your skin. • Choose clothing you feel comfortable in. Loose

t-shirts can be lifted and baby can be snuggled into the side. Button-down shirts can be unbuttoned from the bottom. Wearing a cardigan or jacket over a tank top or t-shirt covers more skin. Belly bands used during pregnancy can be used to cover the tummy. • Try feeding in a sling or wrap. With practice most moms and babes can do this. • Choose a bra that is

easy to use. Practice snapping or unclipping the bra with one hand. • Pick a spot that is comfortable and less visible to the public. • Plan a response if someone asks you to nurse in a different place. If there has been a complaint, suggest that the person finds a place to sit where they can’t see you nursing. • Smile. Breastfeeding is important for you

and your child. Smiling at people who are looking at you often will make things more comfortable for both of you. Lactation consultants and public health nurses are available at public health centres to assist mothers and infants during the breastfeeding years. Diane Cameron is a public health nurse with Interior Health.

Like mother like daughter as the saying goes, yet more profound than the proverbial as every daughter knows. My mother’s life was like a wonderful picnic, an amazing banquet, a glorious feast, a journey of perpetual happiness to say the very least. My mother was a woman of substance, of dignity, wisdom and grace, and the years only enhanced her beauty, her beauty of soul and face. She will never lose that essence for beauty always leaves its trace. So with her everlasting light, my mother will be with me every day and night. Loving you forever, your daughter, Debbey

My dearest grandmother, Thank you for 19 years of love, guidance and magical fun-filled adventures. Your loving great, great granddaughter, Abi Rosella D’Este

Fight back. Volunteer your time, energy and skills today.

NOTICE OF INTENT T12-106 PURCHASE OF USED RAPID INTERVENTION VEHICLE Notice is hereby given by the City of Kelowna of its intent to purchase a 2008 FORD/PIERCE F550, Low Profile Mini Pumper with 9,200 kms from the Calgary International Airport. The vehicle will be used by the aircraft fire fighting operations at the Kelowna International Airport (YLW). The price will not exceed $135,000 plus taxes. The City has chosen not to call for supplier proposals for the following reasons: 1. cost savings realized by purchasing a used vehicle; 2. savings gained in relation to provincial sales tax; 3. eliminates the need for specification development thereby reducing staff time; and 4. reduced delivery time. Suppliers wishing to object to this decision should contact the person identified below either by fax or email on or before Friday October 5, 2012 presenting specific reasons for their objection. If justified a suppliers meeting with City representatives will be called to receive supplier presentations regarding this contract. Supplier ability to offer product resulting in the same or better solutions at a greater savings to the City during the same time frame will be the key criterion with regard to the supplier objections. For additional information please contact: Lori Evans, Senior Buyer, City of Kelowna Purchasing Department, 1435 Water Street, Kelowna BC V1Y 1J4, Fax 250-862-3392 or email purchasing@kelowna.ca kelowna.ca

ARE YOU READY TO BUY A HOME? FIRST - do you have the financial resources? You should have five percent of the purchase price of a home for the down payment, but ideally even more. Are there other priorities in your life e.g. starting a new business, which require your savings? If not, buying a home should be on your radar. SECOND - do you expect to stay in your new home for some time? Moving can be expensive and you will want to build some equity before having to relocate. Your job and home life should be stable.
