Thanksgiving feast more than just about eating Kevin Parnell STAFF REPORTER

He wouldn’t give his name, but that wasn’t a surprise, with the stigma that surrounds the Kelowna Gospel Mission and the people it serves. But this Kelowna man was sure appreciative of a warm meal and some good company on Thanksgiving Monday at the Kelowna Gospel Mission’s annual Thanksgiving feast. “Some people view this as

a negative,” said the man, looking around as he left the gospel mission after a traditional turkey meal. “It shouldn’t be that way but it is. It’s great that these people can do this. I find myself in a bind now and again and it’s nice to be able to come and have a nice meal. It’s important.” The man had just enjoyed one of about 700 meals that the Kelowna Gospel Mission prepared for the city’s homeless and those in need on Thanks-

giving. People lined Leon Avenue waiting their turn while an army of volunteers worked the kitchen and served the meals. The man wasn’t what the mission might consider its regular clientele, but was in need of something to lift his spirits on a day most Canadians are spending with family, indulging in turkey feasts. “We have lots of people who I wouldn’t call regulars,” explained Kelowna Gospel Mission executive director Randy

Benson. “But their life situation has it so that they can’t enjoy a meal like most of us do. “Most people across Canada get to enjoy family time on Thanksgiving and we like to provide that.” The Thanksgiving turkey meal is one of three major meals that the Kelowna Gospel Mission provides for free each year, the others being Christmas Day and Easter. It has become the most popular meal of the three and

the kitchen was hopping from noon until the final sitting at 5 p.m. on Monday. Up until three years ago, the mission would serve 400 to 500 meals at Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter. But for the past three years, that number has risen to over 700. The mission holds a turkey drive to get the meat and also relies upon donations of food and money to purchase the rest. See Eating A6

Ryan Holmes is arguably the Okanagan’s biggest success story. The founder and CEO of the social media management system HootSuite has raised the profile of Canada’s high tech scene, is able to casually speak about his brainchild’s projected market valuation of $500 million and can boast Sir Richard Branson among his list of friends and acquaintances. The latter, he admits, came dangerously close to making him a “gushing fan boy.” With all that and more to his credit, however, Holmes, 37, seemed more like the Vernon guy who started a paintball company right out of high school when he spoke to a crowd laced with family and old high school friends, gathered at Okanagan College campus in Kelowna, last Friday. He was wearing a calculator watch, a few woven bracelets and slipping in references to the Grateful Dead and Star Wars.

Peace forum comes to Kelowna

Journey from homelessness to wholeness in photographs Wade Paterson STAFF REPORTER

A lot has happened to Albert Palmer over the past 12 months. “I was a blubbering mess,” said the 58-yearold, who didn’t have a job or home one year ago. Now Palmer is employed, he sleeps with a roof over his head and he even has a pet cat. Palmer was one of several volunteers to receive a disposal camera through the Second Annual 30K Club-Gorman Brothers Doors of Hope campaign Friday. The event provides 12 individuals with disposable cameras. The volunteers are invited to take photos that illustrate life from their perspective. “The experience is very positive on several levels,” said Jessica Sam-

uels, 30K Club coordinator. “First and foremost, for our participants, they have the ability to…really get their message out and told from their point of view.” Palmer plans to use the camera to tell his story and show his gratitude to the Kelowna Gospel Mission. “These guys helped me out big time,” said Palmer. “I went from being completely devastated to where I can look at somebody without being sad.” He added he aims to show the positive side of a Kelowna area that is often thought of negatively. Chantell Crawford is another participant in the Doors of Hope campaign. She hopes to use the skills she attained from a photography class in high school to snap powerful

pictures. “Photography is one of my passions; I just can’t wait to get out there and take pictures to show people what we go through every day,” said Crawford. Life went downhill for Crawford when she lost custody of her son while living in Winnipeg. After that much of her life was spent on the streets, but through the Kelowna Gospel Mission’s 30K Club, she was recently able to move into a house with her fiancee. “The 30K Club is all about the next step,” said Samuels. “Three of the people here today have recently been housed, really that’s the next step. It’s getting people off friends’ couches, off the streets, out of the shelter here at Kelowna Gospel Mission and getting them some

Kelowna winery to become more energy efficient House of Rose Winery will receive $25,000 to help complete an energy efficiency project as part of the LiveSmart Small Business Champion program. The provincial government is providing a total of $269,415 to 13 small businesses across B.C. to help complete energy efficiency upgrades. Like many wineries, House of Rose Winery is a large energy-user for several reasons: There is significant use of hot water to sterilize and clean tanks, the bottling line and all other equipment. A constant temperature of between 12 and 15 C yearround is required—requiring heating in the winter and cooling in the summer. Several pieces of equip-


ment, most drawing a 220volt current, are used including pumps, destemmers and a bottling line. The building uses significant energy as it is steel and concrete with a metal roof built in the early 1990s. Energy codes have changed significantly since that period. House of Rose Winery is undertaking a variety of steps to produce energy savings. Those steps will include: · •Heating upgrade—installing an air source heat pump and efficient fans to distribute the heated or cooled air as well as installing a programmable thermostat to turn down heat in working areas during the evening and weekends. • Adaptation to solar hot water. • Insulation improvements to



the building envelope. • Building a separate area for fermentation (to provide a twotiered temperature control in the winter: 15 C in the fermentation room and 10 C elsewhere). • Installation of solar tubes over the working areas to add natural light and reduce the light energy requirement. • Lighting upgrade from older fluorescents to newer lights. Each project demonstrates innovative energy-efficiency opportunities and/or energy savings of at least 20 per cent above current consumption. The LiveSmart Small Business Champion applications were evaluated on project feasibility, energy and cost savings, innovation and their benefit and value to other companies and the community.

To help encourage energy efficiency upgrades in the business community, these small business champions will share their project ideas with their local community and businesses, so others can learn from their experience and leadership. The project participants will also be featured on the LiveSmart BC website for the benefit of other small businesses throughout British Columbia. “As the owner of a winery, I appreciate the value of these energy efficiency upgrades,” said Westside-Kelowna MLA Ben Stewart, who owns the Quails’ Gate Winery in West Kelowna. “Not only are they good for the environment, but they also minimize costs. I commend House of Rose Winery for acting as an industry leader as they

reduce their carbon footprint.” The LiveSmart BC Champion Program is a component of the LiveSmart BC: Small Business Program launched in January 2011. This $17-million program assists business owners in saving money by reducing their energy consumption with free energy-efficiency advice, equipment and incentives. The funding for this program ends on March 31, 2013. Small business can receive a free assessment from business energy advisors through business associations and chambers of commerce across the province. To date, the LiveSmart BC program has helped over 9,000 small businesses to reduce energy costs.

The Kelowna Peace Group will host the biannual Southern Interior peace Coalition Conference on Saturday, Oct. 13. The event will begin with registration at 9:30 a.m. and run until 5 p.m. at the Mission Creek Country Inn, 3652 Spiers Rd. The public is invited to attend all or part of the conference, intended to help deepen understanding of issues and build capacity to influence future debate and policy-making in this country. A registration fee of $10 includes coffee and lunch. The conference will gather together peace groups from the Okanagan, Kootenay and Boundary areas affiliated with the national Canadian Peace Alliance. Much of the discussion is likely to centre around the violence and strife in the Middle East, with attention also paid to Canada’s decision to sever diplomatic ties with Iran. “It’s pretty horrifying to see Canada take the lead in escalating belligerence against Iran. The obvious and straightforward solution is to call for and work towards a nuclear weapons free zone in the Middle East—with no exceptions,” said Make Haley, a member of the Kelowna Peace Group. “This is what peace groups have been calling for—a diplomatic solution that is supported by virtually the entire world, but seldom mentioned in dominant media.” Also speaking at 3 p.m. will be author Maxine Kaufman-Lacusta about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

EYE Exam


Find stuff, buy stuff:

Holmes, who was at OC to discuss his industry and accept the school’s Distinguished Alumni Award, explained in his inimitable fashion that while he’s stocked up plenty of life experiences during his meteoric rise, he has his eye on a bigger picture. That vision starts with making HootSuite into an even more stable and powerful entity. He’s publicly said he hopes to see it earn a $1 billion market valuation in the year to come, and with that financial might would come longevity. “My goal is to build a company, and if I get hit by a bus, the company would keep going,” he said. That’s where part two comes in. As HootSuite chugs along, B.C., with Vancouver at the epicentre, may get the foundation to become a hightech investment hub, where more web startups

can get a shot at the type of success he’s tasting. It’s a strategy that marks a change in tack from his predecessors. It’s typical for B.C. startups—online photo management system Flickr being one of the best known examples— to sell at a relatively small valuation and move to Silicon Valley. That way proprietors dodge the pitfalls that come with a long-term, higher risk strategy. Plus they get access to the big industry names on a day-to-day basis, and all the top minds that flock to the region with the knowledge there are career opportunities to be gained. Holmes, however, has proven success is possible on native ground and sees that others can do what he has. “San Francisco investors always said, ‘When are you coming to the valley?”’ he said, noting he made the decision to go there when he needs to, while keeping his roots

north of the border. Other HootSuite offices have opened across the globe, but Vancouver remained home base. If HootSuite can build as Holmes projects, it may become the anchor for a web-based economy, that could offer some solutions to the long lamented brain drain. More than 300,000 well-educated Canadians have already headed south to capitalize on job opportunities that don’t exist closer to home. “I’d say they’d be lost causes,” said Holmes. “But let’s keep the next generation here.” HootSuite success

could also have reverberations closer to his old stomping grounds. While Holmes admits the challenge of getting the type of engineers he’s used to working with would stop a company of his size from planting roots in this valley, he’s seen some positive steps forward. “I’ve been meeting with people here today and it looks like exciting times for the Okanagan,” he said, noting everything from Accelerate Okanagan, Club Penguins and things like like Metabridge will help build the industry’s strength.

“I think this is something that is very important for the community,” said Benson. “We have a lot of regulars who have come to appreciate this as a special day. It’s also a meaningful day for our volunteers who get to make a difference in people’s lives.” Kelowna’s Gospel Mission serves an average of 400 meals every day to the homeless and working poor in and around Kelowna. But Thanksgiving Monday, the kitchen nearly doubled its ouput using 45 turkeys 16 hams, over 600 pounds of potatoes, 40 pounds of mixed vegetables and 60 litres of gravy. And there were plenty of smiles to go around as well, including on the face of the Kelowna man who didn’t want to give his name. He was happy, as he got set to leave the mission and make way for the next sitting. “It lifts the spirits,” he said as he looked around. “If you’re just rummaging around or you don’t have a meal to go to it’s easy to get down. But you come here, you meet some people and have some conversation and a meal and it lifts you up.”

Search and rescue training over the Okanagan Valley Mark Brett CONTRIBUTOR

A small plane with three people on board is overdue at its destination after taking off from Kelowna International Airport eight hours ago. With no communications since then it is believed to have crashed somewhere in the rugged mountains to the southwest. At this stage the Joint Rescue Coordination Centre in Victoria has swung military aircraft into action. That is the scenario facing the crew of the 19 Wing Comox 442 Squadron Buffalo aircraft as they take off from Penticton Regional Airport shortly after dawn on a recent exercise mission. On board the bright yellow and red, twin-engine workhorse—now nearly a half-century old—this day are nine souls. That includes the two pilots, navigator, flight engineer and three search and rescue technicians, better known in the business as SAR techs. Pilot and first officer Capt. Steve Kind is in charge on this flight as part of his training to upgrade to aircraft captain. Although based on the coast, he points out 442 Squadron is regularly tasked to incidents in the Interior which is why these exercises are critical. “The mountains can be very challenging and those challenges come down mainly to weather conditions,” he said while waiting to leave. “Here you’re dealing with the different winds and if the clouds are low, can you go down into the valleys because you have to have a way out. “It can sneak up on you and that’s why we’re here today, to get good at it so when that pager goes off at 11 o’clock at night you know what you’re going into.” Like most military aircraft there are no luxuries, rescue gear ranging from inflatable boats to toboggans and parachutes are packed precisely along plane’s starboard side. There are a few bench seats and rotating stools where spotters sometimes sit for hours looking out the large convex win-

dows for the tiniest glint of metal in the dense forests below. Safety lines and harnesses are attached to clips and rings throughout the plane The movements of the crew in the crowded, narrow confines are more like a choreographed dance routine as preparations are made to drop the SAR techs by parachute to the scene. In the background over the headphones are the voices of the men as they communicate technical data and the occasional joke before the real job begins. Because this is a training exercise, part of the work includes building the camaraderie aspect of the team which is crucial in an actual event. The small airstrip on the outside of Osoyoos was chosen as the “crash” site for this simulation. While the accident is fictional, what the crew and SAR techs are doing is very real and everyone must precisely know their roles. That’s because jumping out of the rear hatch of the Buffalo at an altitude of just over 4,000 feet, there is little room for error. In this case, two of the SAR techs leader Kaulin Damron and George Beatteay are using the

static-line deployment where the parachutes open automatically as they leave the aircraft and Nathan King will do a brief free fall before pulling the rip cord. For safety reasons the static-line method is the only one used in an actual mission. Once on the ground the three men quickly pack up their chutes and retrieve the gear packages which contains medical and other supplies they dropped earlier. Pilots Kind and Dan Faux then land the aircraft on the short strip of asphalt which also serves as the community drag strip on some Sunday afternoons. Unlike most of the regular missions, the weather is bright and sunny, the only hint of problem are the increasing crosswinds as the ground heats up. The concern is evident in the voices of the pilots and the ultimate decision is a full-power takeoff.


SEARCH AND RESCUE technician Master Cpl. Nathan King drops from the rear hatch of the Canadian Forces Buffalo aircraft over Osoyoos during a recent training exercise by members of the CFB Comox 442 Squadron. The military crews regularly comes to the Okanagan to practice in the event of a real emergency. This particular aircraft is designated as a STOL (short take off and landing) for good reason and why having the seat belt securely fastened is a necessity. Once safely in the air, crew members quickly move to the windows to check the engines and with everything running smoothly, it’s back to Penticton and a debriefing on

Got Hard Water? Many areas in the interior of BC have hard water. Lime scale deposits, caused by high calcium content in the water, cause not only hard to clean stains on shower doors, glass ware and other surfaces but it also wreaks havoc on dishwashers, laundry machines and the heating elements in boilers. As local plumber Melvin Witter explains “Due to hard water, taps often need to be replaced once a year and hot water tanks can sometime only last 3-4 years as well.” The loss in energy efficiency is significant and cost associated with the replacement of a broken boiler heating element can be a tough pill to swallow. Traditional water softeners are not only expensive, but they use electricity and require constant refills of salt. Due to the high sodium content of softened water it is not recommended to drink it, which means that additional costs are often incurred purchasing bottled water. Reverse osmosis systems are also a costly affair. Recently a BC family decided to bring a proven European water technology to the Canadian marketplace. Best Water For You, based in Keremeos, BC distributes devices that can effectively solve the lime scale problem without the negative side effects of traditional water softeners. “This is a product that is almost main-

tenance free” says Gloria Fedirchuck who installed a device in her Osoyoos home. “No more bags of salt etc. It is also a very “small” piece of equipment - no more large water softener that takes up space. Best of all it gets rid of the lime scale - clear shower doors, clear wine glasses, nearly ‘smooth’ sinks - i.e. very little lime residue to clean up. Best of all, showering is a delight - skin, hair feels smooth, soft and nice to touch without creams and conditioners.” Other areas of application for water vitalization include hot tubs and pools as well as bakeries. Here the technology can increase the shelve life of bread and reduce mold issues. Bakers report that dough rises better and faster. Applied to irrigation systems, the technology can lead to water savings of 20% – 30% because the soil, plants as well as our bodies absorb vitalized water better. Lab tests have shown a significant improvement of plant growth when the water is vitalized using this technology. These water vitalization devices are a natural and green technology solution to a common problem in the Okanagan and will surely attract attention. They not only address the lime scale problem but offer several other benefits such as improved taste. You can find more information online at www. or by calling 1-855-499-8892.

Enthusiastic turnout of 180 for Kids Run event Wade Paterson STAFF REPORTER

A stampede of 180 kids raced around City Park Saturday as they took part in the BMO ABC Kids Run. The race began Saturday around 1 p.m. Some of the kids taking part gave their best effort to

finish first. Others tried to complete the 1.6 kilometre distance without walking. Most seemed happy just to reach the finish line, where they were cheered on by family members and event volunteers. That was the case for the Ford family. Siblings Isabella, 10,

Oliver, 4, and Layla, 2, stayed toward the back of the pack, but were thrilled to cross the finish line and receive medals for their efforts. “They were starting to get tired part way through, but they got their second wind and had a lot of fun,” said their father, Ben, shortly after the race.

Thank you! The organizers of would like to acknowledge our generous event sponsors


A FIELD OF about 180 kids take off from the starting line Saturday for the BMO ABC Kids Run at City Park. He noted that the children’s grandmother usually signs up her grandkids and runs the race with them. According to BMO ABC Kids Run coordinator Brian Kropman, six activity centres were added this year to make the run a fuller event. “You want to create a

day, you don’t just want to have a run and end it,” said Kropman. “It’s about coming out and participating in the activity centres…then having a fun run and being excited to complete something, get a medal and just have a day about fun and exercise.” Marathon volunteers

also gave the children various tips before the race began, such as how to stretch properly. Kropman said he was happy with the turnout of nearly 200 young racers. With so many kids running at once, on a narrow path, certain precautions were be taken to ensure safety.

“We line up the older kids up front—they’re going to be the faster ones, they’re going to take off right away. We put the smaller ones at the end. “Things are always going to happen, but we try to nullify that by fitting the age groups accordingly.” The BMO ABC Kids Run was part of last weekend’s 18th annual BMO Okanagan Marathon.

Combatting negative thoughts Candace Giesbrecht CONTRIBUTOR

Don’t worry, be happy—easy to say, but many of us don’t find it easy to do. Mental illness is a serious health problem in Canada affecting relationships, education, productivity and overall quality of life. Approximately one in five Canadians, 20 per cent of the population, will experience a mental illness during their lifetimes. Mental illness costs the Canadian economy an estimated $51 billion annually. Fortunately, a pioneering new course developed in the United Kingdom, and backed by the Canadian Mental Health Association, offers the promise for a better life for thousands of individuals living with depression and anxiety. Called Living Life to The Full, the course features eight “little books” that form the basis for eight consecutive 1.5 hour sessions or as the CMHA boldly states: 12 Hours That Can Change Your Life. Bold words, but several independent evaluations show that most people who take the course report a real increase in their well-being. The booklets outline a plainly-worded set of tools that allow participants to face and overcome the problems that are bothering them. The tools are designed to help people experiencing depression or anxiety, but they go beyond that —they work for anyone seeking to worry less and

live a happier life, starting now. What’s remarkable about the program is not just its simplicity, but the fact that it works. Recent trials in Northern Ireland followed 480 people through the course. At the outset 80 per cent of the participants were depressed and only 20 per cent were either happy or not depressed. At the end of the eight weeks, the numbers were reversed—83.3 per cent were happy or not depressed and only 16 per cent were depressed. Dr. Chris Williams, a psychiatrist and professor at the University of Glasgow, developed the program as a way to more effectively help which is based on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). Dr. Williams was in B.C. recently to help CMHA launch Living Life to the Full in Canada. He told a group of mental health professionals that the plain language of the course is the key to its success. Dr. Williams designed the courses to be delivered by certified trainers, who can encourage people to get the most out of the eight sessions. And if some participants need more help than the course can provide, the facilitator can refer them to the appropriate service providers. At the heart of Living Life to the Full, however, is the conviction that ordinary people can learn how to take ownership of their mental health by using the tools outlined in the books to feel better.

People lose the ability to cope when the problems they face get too big or overwhelming, and that launches a vicious circle. They go from thinking bad thoughts to feeling emotionally upset to experiencing altered physical feelings and finally altered behaviour—staying in bed, missing deadlines, crying jags, blowing up. You can go from worrying about failure to actual failure unless you interrupt the vicious circle before it gets to that. “You can break the vicious circle by changing any point,” said Dr. Williams. CMHA BC branches around the province have delivered 29 courses to more than 380 people during a pilot program from April 2010 through March 2011. Of the 228 people who completed the evaluation, 85 per cent said the course was either useful or very useful and 91 per cent said they would recommend the course to their family and friends. The course has inspired people to claim little victories such as cleaning out the garage or ending a nail-biting habit to bigger changes—taking out-of-town trips or moving to a new house. One relieved participant is “now sleeping at night.” CMHA-B.C. has adapted Living Life to the Full to the diverse needs of today’s British Columbia, translating the pro-

Democracy takes a holiday


hen the democratically elected representatives don’t sit, debate, and vote on issues before the government—welcome to the Protectorate of British Columbia, where we are ruled by Liberal spin-doctors and their re-election machine. The revelation last month that the Liberals have cancelled the fall sitting of the legislature is undoubtedly predicated by spin-doctor rationale that MLAs are tougher to be held accountable for their actions when not

required to answer questions about their shenanigans. It should be mentioned, though, that Premier Christy Clark learned this particular trick from her predecessor, Gordon Campbell, who would often cancel sittings of the legislature. Newly-minted Finance Minister Rich Coleman’s first order of business was to break the news that natural gas revenues in the province were down and, as a result, the province has undertaken austerity measures

akin to the Bill Bennett days of the early 1980s. Isn’t that, and the measures the government is going to undertake to try and balance the books, worthy of discussion in the legislature? Apparently not. Instead, all the forces of government will focus on preparing a budget that the Liberals can present next spring, just prior to the election, telling us that all is well with the world because they are at the helm. Even though the province is now blustering about on the

Northern Gateway Pipeline project, shouldn’t its position be debated in our legislature? Apparently not. When those who are looking for your vote come knocking on your door next spring, ask them this question. Are you and/or your party committed to having spring and fall sittings of the legislature every year? Those who don’t make that personal commitment are not worthy of democracy’s highest honour…your vote.

At which end of the road should

the work have started? How long should it take? Should the city have paid more to work through the winter to speed up completion? And now new, project-related questions have popped up. Like, are the faces used in city advertisements on the worksite fences really representative of the local population? And, is the city doing enough to let the public know businesses are open to foot traffic during the construction? But while Bernard Avenue is the most visible construction project in the city, it is not the only downtown project garnering attention. The plan to build a new, multistorey parkade beside Memor-

ial Arena for a proposed new office building to house Interior Health workers across the street has also gained its fair share of attention lately. While the office tower has largely been welcomed because of the estimated 1,000 new workers it will bring into the downtown core, some feel it is slated for the wrong place at the corner of Doyle Avenue and St. Paul Street. But that’s where the city has land to sell. And the proceeds from that sale will help pay for the new parkade. The city says the parkade is critical to the office tower going ahead and will help provide more parking for everyone downtown. But crit-

ics complain it is slated for land covered by the Kelowna Sawmill Community Trust—referred to by some as the Simpson Covenant—and as such should not be used. They say it encourages cars at a time when the city is trying to discourage car use. But the proposal calls construction of a parkade on what is now a parking lot. The argument has been made in recent years that the real commercial centre of the city is now the area around Orchard Park Shopping Centre, not downtown. But given the interest in downtown development, it appears downtown is still alive and well.

SEKID urged to postpone improvement plan Open letter to the board of directors for the South East Kelowna Irrigation District: More than 30 years ago, I developed, and still own, a manufactured home park in southeast Kelowna. I am writing to you to express my deepest concerns over proposed rate hikes by the water district. Residents of this community, along with those in other manufactured home parks in the area are, in general, at a more modest income level than the overall population. The proposed rate hikes will have a major

impact on their finances. While the total increase will be invoiced and paid for by the land owner, it is these residents who will ultimately foot the bill. Like the invoice, only the land owner will get to vote on the proposal. Each park resident does not own the land their home sits on and therefore does not get to vote. These residents and community members make up more than 10 per cent of the home owners in southeast Kelowna and if they had a vote, I am quite sure they alone would defeat this proposal.

Years ago in British Columbia, only land owners were allowed to vote in municipal elections. But now all residents are able to express their voice. Your constitution may not allow these votes, but surely you must give consideration to these members of the community as well. While I am sure you have tried to weigh all options and feel this is the only choice, I urge you to halt this process and revisit the program. (SEKID manager Toby) Pike has been quoted as saying there is no government funding avail-

able and it would make no difference if SEKID was part of a greater Kelowna water district. I am not so sure. Over the last 20 years sewer expansions in Kelowna and West Kelowna have been funded by up to 50 per cent by provincial grants and Peachland has taken advantage of federal opportunities to improve its community. Area MLA Steve Thomson recently stated provincial funds may become available. If there are no government grants today, there will be again in the not-too-distant future. I urge you to halt this

process until you have a firm commitment of government support. I have been involved in southeast Kelowna for over 30 years and have seen marked improvement to the quality of water over that time. While further improvement may be necessary, I urge you to use some common sense. In these difficult economic times restraint is a byword everywhere. It is time for SEKID to show some now. Larry Cochrane, Kelowna

Have they never been to a concert, remained until the artists completely finished, the audience applauds, artists briefly leave the stage then return

to play an encore? That’s more performance for those of you who left early and have never experienced such an event. Occasionally, there is more than one encore for a lucky audience. When it’s really over, then you politely rise and as you slowly leave the hall, make comments to others regarding how

wonderful it was to listen to and see such a lovely concert. Why, you may even pause to great a neighbor or friend that you haven’t seen in many years and agree to meet over coffee. That is what you are missing when you leave early. Going to a concert is an event. It’s something to be appreciated and

Right idea, wrong location for proposed building To the editor: Last Wednesday evening, I was downtown at another meeting and heard that there was a presentation at City Hall (about a proposed parkade for a proposed Interior Health office building and expanding the existing Library Parkade). I looked at the proposal and talked extensively with one of the real estate specialists. I am writing this as an artist, and a long-term resident business person at the Rotary Centre for the Arts in the Cultural District for the last 10 years. The placement of both the building and the parkade would be detrimental to the character and ambiance of the Cultural District. By placing these two buildings in their current proposed locations tells me the city does not understand the vibrancy and life force of the Cultural District. I see this as being a very shortsighted design, without regard to the fu-

ture impact. Ellis Street cannot take the traffic. The grassy area near the Library Parkade would disappear. This is parkland that is used for cultural activities. In my discussion with the city employee that night, he said there would be parkland increased near the water. I think that is wonderful but all the parkland should not be in the same spot. It is quite beautiful to be able to walk around downtown and come across green areas where one can sit and have lunch, watch a play or participate in a fair. I agree that the downtown area needs parking. There must be areas that are outside the Cultural District where this can be facilitated. People currently walk from as far away as Bernard Avenue to go to Kelowna Rockets hockey game (at Prospera Place), or to other events there. I think the city employee’s excuse that people won’t walk from

a parkade located near the Clement-Ellis-Sunset area, or even from the Leon-Lawrence area, is a thin one and unbelievable. The city just turned down the Monaco development proposal, which was going to be placed right behind the Madison building, and yet it wants to have another building almost as high as the Monaco, right across the street? The impact of this new building on the residents of the Madison, who are property owners and investors, will be very detrimental. I am surprised the city is proposing this spot. Is it so people who work for the IHA can have a view of the water from their offices between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. every day? In my opinion, it is admirable that the city wants to infuse the downtown with 1,000 extra people who will shop and work there. But the reality of the situation is that they will go to work and then go

home and are unlikely spend as much time as expected or hoped. The proper thing to do would be to place the office building on Leon and Lawrence Avenues, and out of the Cultural District. There has been discussion about cleaning up these two streets and it seems to me that having an office building there would accomplish that, while having more people work downtown.

Thoughts to consider before putting your dog or cat on a raw food diet


mproving general health by practicing a healthy lifestyle is constantly at the top of our society’s agenda. Most of the leisure magazines are dealing with the current recommendations for the best diets and food, how to lose weight safely, and how to maintain good fitness and stay in shape. This current debate on healthy lifestyle hasn’t skipped over the pets world. Many pets owners are very concerned about their pets health condition and striving to improve it. One of the main topics that is still considered controversial and being debated amongst different professional animal care givers and animal lovers is what is the optimal diet for companion animals such as cats and dogs. Is it commercial pet food or diet based on raw meat? People’s desire to consume food that is as natural and unprocessed as possible also caused

However, similarly to many other trends, raw diet trend is also controversial, some people swear by it, but feeding your pet raw diet does bear some risks. Cats and dogs are considered carnivores. Raw diet supporters believe that it is important to feed pets the same diet that they have consumed years ago, when they still lived in the wild. They believe that raw diet has the benefits of giving the animal a healthier coat, cleaner teeth and breath, reduced stool volume and odor, reduction in food associated allergies and better overall health. Raw feeders believe that the heat that is involved in producing commercial food destroys a significant part of the essential nutrients and vitamins found in the meat. The same rationale is the reason why raw feeders are also against feeding pets cooked home made food. Raw diet supporters

the meat. These additives are usually based on grains, mainly corn. Raw diet supporters believe that the protein found in meat is superior to any of the proteins found in the grains and that these additives purpose is mainly to add bulk and act as fillers. There are few different models for raw diets. The raw diet options differ in the meat vs. bones proportion offered to the pet. One theory suggests offering a whole carcass to the animal. And the question of whether dogs are omnivores or carnivores, hence whether dogs need plant material in their diet, and if so, the proportion of such material. Despite all the advantages mentioned, feeding pets raw diet also bear some significant risks. The main risks associated with the consumption of raw meat is the bacterial, parasitic and viral contamination. These pathogens are not only dangerous to the animal itself but also may be transmitted to humans. Bones ingestion can lead to intestinal obstruction or perforation, choking, and teeth breaking.

requirements of the animal. Feeding pets homemade food may subject them to nutritional deficiencies. Some nutritional deficiencies may have severe and even lethal implications. As well, exploring and preparing a balanced homemade food for pets is much more time consuming and expensive than buying pets commercial food. As with many other popular trends, there is no absolute truth. Every theory has supporters and opponents. Because of the potential animal and human health risks, veterinarian organizations and public health agencies believe that the risks inherent in raw feeding outweigh the purported benefits. Clearly if one chooses to attempt raw diet feeding, it should be done after a diligent research about the pet’s nutritional requirements according to its breed, age, any specific medical condition etc. A veterinarian consultation can help you decide what diet is optimal to your pet’s lifestyle and health requirements.

Relief option for menopause symptoms M enopause is the transitional phase of a woman’s life when menstrual function ceases, typically spanning a two to five year period. During this time, hormonal levels in the body are fluctuating, as estrogen and progesterone levels gradually decline. The main symptoms likely to be experienced (with varying degrees of severity) are headaches, tiredness, lethargy, irritability, anxiety, nervousness, depression, insomnia, inability to concentrate, hot flashes, and sweating. Menopause typically occurs between the ages of 48 and 55, but menopause is a gradual physiological process that really begins with birth, and the cycle of gradual maturation and decline of a woman’s reproductive system. This certainly agrees with the Chinese medicine view of menopause, in which menopause is not viewed as a syndrome


James Kaufman so much as a normal transition in a women’s life that is influenced greatly by a woman’s lifestyle, emotional stress, experiences, and dietary habits. There are many characteristics of the modern western lifestyle that can lead to increased menopausal symptoms. Emotional stress is an extremely important cause of menopausal problems, as worry, anxiety and fear all weaken the kidneys and lead to yin deficiency. Considering the increased stress posed on women through work and family in the past 40 to 50 years, it is not uncommon for many women to deal with ongoing overwork and stress both physical and emotion-

al, all of which contribute to a woman’s experience during menopause. Other impacts of a fast-paced lifestyle can be poor or rushed meals, and not having the time or energy for regular exercise or stress release. From a Chinese medicine perspective, menopausal symptoms are generally due to a decline of the kidneys, often as either a deficiency of kidney-yin, kidney-yang, or both, each of which will present its own set of symptoms. Sweating in the middle of the night indicates a kidney yin deficiency, whereas sweating in the early morning upon waking indicates a kidney yang deficiency. A kidney yang deficiency will also be accompanied by a feeling of cold, especially in the feet, whereas a kidney yin deficiency will be accompanied by a feeling of heat, particularly in the chest, the palms of the hands, and the soles of the feet.

A kidney yin or yang deficiency pattern may also be combined with other patterns of imbalance, which might involve the liver, a stagnation of qi-energy, or deficiency of blood. These imbalances can contribute to other menopausal symptoms: hot flashes, insomnia, irritability, depression, nervousness and anxiety, fatigue, palpitations, nausea, diarrhea and constipation, and stiffness, bloating, cramps and joint pain, among other symptoms. Acupuncture offers a more natural approach to managing menopausal symptoms. Whereas some types

Filmmaker explores what it means to be human and alive

Wade Davis is a man of many talents— ethnographer, writer, photographer, and filmmaker. Davis shared his vivid photography and captivating stories of global exploration with a capacity crowd last Wednesday night, challenging the audience to contemplate the question of what it truly means to be human and to be alive. His presentation at the Kelowna Community Theatre was the first in this season’s UBC Distinguished Speaker Series. “When the 7,000 cultures of the world respond to the question of what it means to be human and alive, they do so in 7,000 different voices and those answers collectively become our human repertoire in dealing with the challenges that confront us as a species for the ensuing centuries,” said rB.C.-born Davis. Davis notes that rediscovering a new appreciar tion for the diversity of the human spirit as expressed by culture, is among the central challenges of our times. “Together the myri-

half are not being taught to children, meaning they’re on the road to extinction,” Davis said. “Imagine no means or ability to pass on the wisdom of your ancestors or anticipate the promise of your descendants. On average, every two weeks, some elder in some culture passes away and carries with him or her into


WADE DAVIS is an ethnographer, writer photographer and filmmaker. ad cultures of the world make up an intellectual, social, and spiritual web of life that envelopes the planet and is important to the well-being of the planet, as is the biological web of life that you know so well as the biosphere,” said Davis. “You can think of this cultural web of life as being an ‘ethnosphere’ – the sum total of all thoughts and dreams, ideas and intuitions, myths and possibilities, since the dawn of consciousness. “The ethnosphere is

humanity’s great legacy. It is a symbol of all we have achieved and the promise of all we can achieve as a wildly creative and innovative species. “Just as the biological web of life has been severely impacted by the loss of habitat and the loss of plants and animal life, so too has the ethno sphere, but at a far greater rate.” Language loss is a great indicator of this. “Of the 7,000 languages spoken the day you were born, more than

It is vital to Earth’s health, species survival, and the progression of the collective human journey, he said.

“If there is one thing that anthropology teaches—and this is the central lesson of this presentation—it’s that culture is not trivial; it is not decorative. It is the body of moral and ethical values that every society places around each individual to keep at bay the barbaric heart history teaches us that, sadly, lie within every human

being.” Davis is a well-published scholar and Explorer-in-Residence at the National Geographic Society. Named by the society as one of the Explorers for the Millennium, he has been described as “a rare combination of scientist, scholar, poet, and passionate defender of all of life’s diversity.”

Heritage behind winery celebrated for 80th birthday Judie Steeves STAFF REPORTER

There were clouds of memories rising from the hospitality room at Calona Wines recently as retired employees who had spent their working lives there mingled with descendants of the founders at an 80th birthday party for the downtown Kelowna business. In speaking to the crowd of those remembering the early days, Greg Capozzi, grandson of winery founder Pasquale (Cap) Capozzi, began by commenting that it was sad not to have his uncles present. “But it’s also a relief because there would always be a ‘discussion,’ which meant some arguing and some raised voices,” he laughed. His father Herb and Uncle Tom would always

call his Uncle Joe “God” because he always knew what was best and he was always right, he recalled with a grin. Former Kelowna Museums executive director Wayne Wilson related that the company was started in difficult times during the 1930s depression, when there were mountains of apples rotting because growers couldn’t sell them. It was started by Capozzi and former B.C. Premier W.A.C. Bennett, before he became involved in politics, to make apple wine as a way to help get the people of Kelowna working again, and to use those apples. The first commercial grapes were planted in Kelowna by J.W. Hughes. As apple wine proved unsuccessful, Calona Wines began making wine from grapes, including

sacramental wine to provide to churches throughout the west. In February 1942, a group of minesweepers were launched by Canada using Calona champagne for the ceremony, he recalled. “It was all about risk-taking,” he said. The company went through difficult times for many years as those at the helm explored different routes to steer the company in a direction that it enjoys today—one of Canada’s largest wineries and the largest purchaser of industrial grapes in the Okanagan. Former chief executive officer Ian Tostenson credited the spirit of the people who worked at the winery, and their commitment to it, for making the winery what it is today. “Many families and people in Kelowna have been influenced by Calo-

na Wines,” he said. In fact, he said there should probably be a street named after the winery. Kelowna Mayor Walter Gray agreed, commenting it would have to be a pretty significant one since the winery has been a cornerstone industry in the city. Gray credited having the right people in charge at critical times in the winery’s history for helping to make it a success, naming key players such as Tostenson and master winemaker Howard Soon. Tostenson agreed that Soon, who he called the “affable winemaker,” has had a huge impact, citing that happy, passionate people make good wine. Renowned wine writer John Schreiner, who has chronicled Canada’s wine industry, particularly the B.C. side of it, noted the Canada/U.S. Free Trade

Agreement was a turning point for the winery, leading to the decision to move from being known as a manufacturer of jug wines made from fruit or hybrid grapes to a creator of premium wines. That involved the name change to Calona Vineyards and its Artist Series of VQA wines and the ultra-premium Sandhill Wines, focussing on production of vinifera grapes from a single vineyard in each bottle. For his part, Soon credited many of those original winery workers who are now retired for being responsible for its success. “Those retired workers still care how we do,” as he looked around the room. To applause, Soon also revealed that the winery just learned it has won five medals in the Canadian Wine Awards.

Take a moment to appreciate the positive side of our jobs T

hanksgiving is one of my favourite holidays of the year. It brings together elements of family, community, and the opportunity to embrace a state of gratitude for the people and things that make our lives full. Throughout the year, we carry on with our rlives, going to work, doring our jobs, having good days and bad. It can become somewhat of a mindless routtine. This auto pilot mode can have a degree of comfort to it too when it protects us from any negative dynamics around us. It is more of a problem when tuning out becomes a permanent state of disengagement. r Every workplace is going to have its share of tension and personality clashes. If those persist, work can become very stress-


Laurie Mills ful. When constant change is added to that it is easy to get frustrated and critical of our employers and/or our coworkers. Things just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make sense some days and peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s behaviour can be annoying. How we respond to the dynamics around us is a very personal thing. Some people have better coping skills than others; attitude plays a big role; and; everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s support system is different. When work and life get difficult, finding positive ways to manage the day to day stress can help

prevent it from becoming chronic. Some people are genuinely optimistic and able to look on the bright side of any situation. They truly do find the silver lining in any cloud and that is how they get through the dark days. Other people have the blessing and the curse of a naturally critical mind. Analytical thinking can add real value to problem solving however, it can also be a source of frustration for everyone when it is only used to find flaws in everything. Being able to balance a realistic perspective with a positive attitude is a real talent. With practise it can become a learned habit. One thing that helps is to consciously assess â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and acceptâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;what is within our control and what is not. Particularly at work, worrying about things

that we cannot truly influence is an exercise in futility. Better to save/use our energy for the things that are within our power to change. If we are directly involved in real difficulties, we need to actively investigate our part in causing or feeding those. There will always be decisions made at work that are dictated from the higher ranks. We may not under-

stand the reasoning for them nor will we necessarily agree with them. However, to preserve our own sanity there needs to be an element of trust and acceptance that the leaders at the top are doing the best they can. If we stay in our jobs by choice than it is fair to conclude that there is enough about it that is positive so why not focus on that more often? Again, for everyone the payback is going to

be different but as long as the good continues to outweigh the negative, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a reason to celebrate. No family or partnership is ideal; no employer is without flaws; no team is always in sync; no job is completely satisfying all the time. Life is a mixed bag. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why Thanksgiving is a perfect chance to reflect on what is good about our livesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;at home and at workâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and to accept the whole package

with sincere appreciation and gratitude.

Future job creators of tomorrow offer exciting potential T here is no doubt in my mind that our outh is the future of our nation. When Canada has a healthy youth population, we will find our nation making wonderful headway in terms of overall development and socioeconomic progress. The world today has

evolved dramatically into a technology era. Everywhere I go, I see where technology, in all its many faces, has enabled progress in all fields and levels of our provincial and Canadian society. You have heard this phrasing before I’m sure, that the technological revolution has changed the



Joel Young now is to create the healthy business environment that can propel the up and coming entrepreneurial stars to dream big and pursue their ideas for opportunity. Governments and international agencies must create and stick to longterm agendas to co-operate and collaborate in the development of such strategies that can provide environments conducive to entrepreneurshipfriendly horizons.

Two important aspects toward building a youth entrepreneurship culture stand out clearly to me— building through education and promotion. Today, we have truly began the journey in our regional educational fields both within and external to our educational systems. That alone is exciting to me, but we’re not quite at the level of a “culture” just yet. Apart from introducing enterprise education, an absolutely critical element that must be included in an entrepreneurship strategy is to address the issue of building entrepreneurial awareness among our youth. A favourite of mine is creating an entrepreneurial spirit among our youth

with the help of our media, social media and other communication avenues. Hosting awareness programs, orientation camps and group discussions that specifically target campaigns to promote youth entrepreneurship events, as well as launching achievement awards and competitions, are wonderful channels for building that youth entrepreneurship culture. Theory tells us also that a significant part of learning occurs through observing and emulating role models. Doesn’t everyone wish to become a Steve Jobs or Bill Gates? Quite a few values, thinking patterns, attitudes are imbibed by the individuals based on their role model’s personality

and character. Finally, let me also make you aware of an organization called The Canadian Youth Business Foundation (, a national non-profit entrepreneurship foundation which has a loan program and advisory services for aspiring young men and women between the ages of 18 and 39 who wish to embark on the journey of entrepreneurism. Our Okanagan Valley Entrepreneurs Society ( is the regional delivery arm of this wonderful tool for your entry into this challenging but joyous world.

PARENTING Canadian parents

out to lunch about kids’ at school eating habits

A recent study for the Hellmann’s brand at Unilever Canada revealed that parents may not be as aware of their kid’s at-school eating habits as they might think. In fact, while more than two thirds (72%) of Canadian parents who were polled believe that their children do not throw away lunch items, almost a third (31%) of Canadian children polled admit they throw out some of

their lunch items, and nearth ly half (46%) report that they regularly trade some th of their lunch items with friends. fr What’s a parent to do to eensure that what’s packed aactually gets eaten? According to the nattional survey, it’s all about ffood awareness. In fact, cchildren who learn about ffood are significantly less likely (67%) to throw out their lunch. “We know that food education matters but we were surprised at how it relates to lunchtime eating behaviours,” said Stephanie Cox, senior brand manager for Hellmann’s at Unilever Canada. “Our survey demonstrates a few of the positive ways food education can change children’s attitudes towards food.” Canadian parents also believe that food education has a positive impact on their kids’ interest in meal preparation. The survey found that of the 22% of kids who are receiving food education, parents reported that they are very involved in packing their lunch. Educating kids and families about ways

QUICK TIPS 1. When your child wants to show you something, stop what you are doing and pay attention to your child. It is important to spend frequent, small amounts of time with your child doing things that you both enjoy. 2. Give your child lots of physical attention – children like hugs, cuddles and holding hands. 3. Talk to your child about things he/she is interested in and share aspects of your day with your child. 4. Give your child lots of descriptive praise when they do something you would like to see more of. For example, “Thank you for doing what I asked right away.” 5. Children are more likely to misbehave when they are bored so provide lots of engaging indoor and outdoor activities for your child such as play dough, colouring, cardboard boxes, dress ups, blanket tents, etc. 6.Teach your child new skills by first showing the skill yourself, then giving your child opportunities to learn the new skill. For example, speak politely to each other in the home. Then prompt your child to speak politely (ex: say “please” or “thank you”), and praise your child for their efforts (ex: “Thank you for using your polite words”.) 7. Set clear limits on your child’s behaviour. Sit down and have a family discussion on the rules in your home. Let your child know what the consequences will be if they break the rules. 8. If your child misbehaves stay calm and give them clear instruction to stop misbehaving and tell them what you would like them to do instead. (ex: “Stop throwing. Play with the truck on the ground.”) Praise your child if they stop (ex: “Thank you for playing with the truck on the ground.”)

in which they can become more engaged with real food is one of the establishing principles of the Hellmann’s real food grant program. The grant program was founded in 2010 and designed to fund community-led initiatives across the country. To date, the program has provided over $310,000 of funding to 69 projects in communities across Canada. “It’s really amazing how easy it is to get kids excited about real food,” says Chuck Hughes, celebrity chef and longtime champion of Hellmann’s Real Food Movement. “We see the way kids connect with food through the programs we fund with Hellmann’s and the result is really powerful. They want to eat it, they get excited about it—it changes their whole perspective.” For easy school lunch ideas visit or join our Facebook page at www. for more tips, ideas and real food inspiration. About the Real Food Movement Hellmann’s mayonnaise was founded on the principle of starting with real, simple ingredients—like eggs, oil and vinegar. This commitment to real ingredients is why Hellmann’s launched the Real Food Movement, a mission to help get more real food on Canadian tables by inspiring families to smell, taste, touch and learn about the pleasure that comes from eating real food.

lines, which they may tend to neglect as they get older, and can help seniors to have more independent, functional lives where they live longer, stronger, and more productive years. It is important before putting your trust and health in the hands of a personal trainer that you make sure they are a fully prepared, trained professional. Here are some tips on what to look for in a personal trainer:

CERTIFICATION Do not assume that because your personal trainer is working at a gym that they are certified. When you find a personal trainer that you might hire, visit the website of the certification body that they claim to belong to and check your trainerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s certification. You want to see that the personal trainer is also keeping his certifica-

tion current, and that they continue to attend classes, seminars, and successfully complete continuing education courses for credit. Your personal trainer should also be currently certified in first aid and CPR.

MEDICAL HISTORY AND EVALUATION Before a personal trainer puts you through your first workout, they should take your medical history and have you perform a fitness evaluation and assessment.

FITNESS PROGRAMS Once your personal trainer completes their initial evaluation, they will set up a program that should incorporate your needs and goals.

REFERENCES Before you hire a personal trainer, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be afraid to get references from

other clients.


A personal trainer who approaches you to offer a session or give pointers on your form shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t look like they need a personal trainer themselves. They should be in good physical shape. In the health and fitness industry, a personal trainerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s appearance is definitely part of their marketing. As a personal trainer myself, I have been especially busy with my seniors designing home and gym â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fall Preventionâ&#x20AC;? fitness programs.

SPORTS Sun draw Raiders for BCFC semi-finals Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

It’s often said familiarity breeds contempt. If that’s holds true in junior football, don’t expect any pleasantries to be wasted when the Okanagan Sun visit the Vancouver Island Raiders later this month in Nanaimo. After butting heads three previous times already in 2012, the longtime rivals will battle one final time Oct. 19 in the B.C. Football Conference semi-final. “We have to return to the rock in two weeks,” said Lake, whose club lost two nail-biters in Nanaimo this season, 30-29 and 32-30. “The first two have been good battles. We’ll be looking forward to going back there for another shot.” Combined with Westshore’s win over fifthplace Kamloops Saturday, the Sun (3-6) secured the fourth and final playoff spot in the BCFC on Saturday with a 36-0 victory over the winless Chilliwack Huskers (0-9). In a game where the result was a foregone conclusion even before the opening kick off, Lake said it was a challenge for

his players to maintain a steady level of intensity from start to finish. “You don’t like to think that way, you really have to try and go 100 per cent, no matter who you’re playing, to prevent injuries. Having said that, it’s hard to get dialed up when you’re playing a team that’s struggling like Chilliwack. I thought we played a bit too loose, took some penalties we shouldn’t have…but in the end it’s the W that counts.” Sun quarterback Cam Bedore fired a trio of touchdown passes— two to Tommy Howes— with backup Austin Komonoski adding another. Robbie Yochim scored the other Sun major on a 98-yard punt return. While there are still bugs to be worked out of the Sun’s game in general, Lake said there are areas that continue to show progress with each passing week. “I thought it was a breakthrough week for our return game, we popped a few there, so that gives us a bit more of an attack, helps us with field position and gives us some confidence,” said Lake. “Our linebackers and DB’s are

attempts, but was hampered by a bad snap and a block. The Sun will close

It wasn’t like there was any great panic for Rourke Chartier to score his first Western Hockey League goal. Still, spotting the puck sitting in the net behind Cougars’ goaltender Devon Fordyce late in the first period Saturday night in Prince George was a satisfying moment for the 16-year-old Kelowna Rockets rookie from Saskatoon. “It was pretty lucky,” said Chartier, whose first WHL goal was unassisted. “I just threw it at the net, it banked off his pads and went in. “I had some chances before that, so it was nice to finally get one. I wasn’t too worried, I knew if I kept working, one was going to eventually go in.” It only took Chartier

ing him continue to develop.” While Chartier already has two goals to his credit, Huska expects the gifted centreman will become known more for his playmaking acumen over the course his WHL career. And as he continues to work on refining his defensive game, the Rockets expect Chartier to develop into a complete package. “The challenge for Rourke, like so many young players who are new to the league, is to understand the defensive side of the game, taking pride in being a two-way player, and challenging himself to be a complete player,” Huska said. “He’s already good defensively because of his intelligence. Now it’s a matter of getting more comfortable, knowing his responsibilities, and he’ll get even better.” Chartier said the puck from his WHL first goal— retrieved by teammate Tyson Baillie—will likely end up residing in his

An offensively gifted player in minor hockey in Saskatchewan, Chartier hasn’t taken long to display his talents at the major junior level. “He’s had some chances, so it’s nice to see Rourke get rewarded relatively early in his junior career,” said Rockets head coach Ryan Huska. “He’s an intelligent player that the more he plays, the better he’s going to get and the more offense he’s going to generate.

Warriors set for deuce with Langley

The West Kelowna Warriors and Langley Rivermen will hook up for the first time in the 201213 BCHL season with a home-and-home set this weekend. On Friday night, the clubs will face off at the Langley Events Centre before heading to West Kelowna on Saturday for a 7 p.m. face off at Royal Le Page Place. The Warriors picked up three of a possible four points over the weekend to push their season record to 4-2-0-3. On Saturday, the Warriors fell just shy of a weekend sweep dropping a 2-1 decision in overtime to the hometown Vernon Vipers. Colton Sparrow scored the game winner at 4:11 of the extra period. Seb Lloyd counted the Warriors’ lone goal early in the second frame, his fifth of the season.

Ok Rockets better than OK Prior to the start of the 2012-13 season, the Okanagan Rockets fully expected to be serious contenders in the B.C. Major Midget League. Three weeks into the new campaign, the Kelowna-based club is having no trouble living up to its advanced billing. The Rockets crushed the visiting Kootenay Ice in back-to-back games over the weekend at the Capital News Centre to remain unbeaten through their first six (5-0-1) regular season games. On Saturday, Okanag-

an rolled to a 6-0 victory as 16-year-old Reid Kilburn posted the shutout for this third win. Captain Brenden Wagner scored twice an added an assist, with Brett Mennear, Josh Blanchard, Dennon Leibel, and Spencer Hewson adding singles, and Michael McEachern and Alex Gran registering two assists each. On Sunday, more of the same in a 10-0 win as Wagner added two more goals and now leads the team with eight this season.

Kelowna Rockets second-round draft pick Joe Gatenby picked up his first two BCMML goals, while Blanchard added his sixth and seventh tallies of the campaign. Brenden Mills made 12 saves for his first MML shutout as the Rockets outshot the Ice 106-24 over the two games. This weekend, the Rockets will travel to the Langley Events Centre for the league’s annual showcase event. Okanagan will face the Valley West Hawks for games on Saturday and Sunday.

Mt. Boucherie Bears 2-0 after posting second shutout What was billed by some as a potential epic battle between two longtime rivals instead turned out to be a romp for the Mt. Boucherie Bears. In Okanagan AAA Conference high school football action Friday at the Apple Bowl, the Bears scored early, then rolled to a 37-0 victory over the Kelowna Owls. The Bears, now 2-0, have yet to give up a point in the regular season. The Owls, now 1-1, were without their head coach Shane Sommerfeld, who was at Dickinson being inducted into the BlueHawks’ hall of fame. Bears head coach Mike Godwin was understandably pleased with the win but didn’t think the Owls offered their best effort. “I think they missed Shane a little bit,” said Godwin.

“I was expecting a little more out of them but they were a little undisciplined, took some penalties, and we took advantage of a couple of freebees. We didn’t play our best but we still played well.” Joe Court scored a pair of majors, one on an 18yard pass from Josiah Joseph, the other on an 18yard run. Joseph also connected with Peter Briker from 30 yards, while Ronnie DeGuevara scored a pair of majors on runs of 26 and 80 yards. On defence, senior Curtis Urlacher led the charge with eight tackles and a blocked punt, the latter leading to a gameopening safety for the Bears. This coming Friday night, Boucherie will travel to Salmon Arm to take on the Golds.

The Owls will face Rutland Friday at the Apple Bowl in a 6:30 p.m. kick off. Meanwhile, Rutland defeated Salmon Arm 4215. After being blanked a week earlier by the Bears, the Rutland Voodoos rebounded Friday with a convincing win over the Salmon Arm Golds. Hit by a couple of key injuries in recent games, the Voodoos were led offensively by Rob Busby who had 11 carries for 81 yards and two touchdowns. Busby added another major on a 55-yard punt return. With No. 1 quaterback Keith Prescott sidelined for several weeks with a dislocated kneecap, Grade 10 pivot Mitchell Walz stepped in and passed for 112 yards, including a touchdown pass to Con-

Against Salmon Arm, the Voodoos also lost standout offensive/defensive tackle Michele Vecchio to a dislocated ankle. Defensively, Jeryd Is-

ley had five tackles and a sack, Quinn had seven tackles, and Morgan Delaronde returned an interception 54 yards. Voodoos head coach Peter McCall said his club

responded well in the face of some adversity. “It was a lesson learned in the loss against the Bears,” said McCall. “The guys came out and played well. With the injuries we

have, the guys really had to step up and they did a good job of that.” The Voodoos and KSS will match up on Friday, 6:30 p.m. at the Apple Bowl.

Canada is a leader in science and technology innovation S cience and Technology Week in Canada will take place from Oct. 12 to 21, and provides us with a great opportunity to raise awareness of the importance of science and technology and celebrate Canada’s role as a leader in innovation. As posted at science., a recent assessment of the state of science and technology in Canada by an 18-member national and intentional expert panel has found Canadian science and technology is healthy and growing in both output and impact. Furthermore, over the past five years, real improvements have occurred in the magnitude and quality of Canadian science and technology.

According to panel chair Dr. Eliot Phillipson, “There is much for Canadians to be proud of as Canada’s international reputation is strong, science and technology research is robust across the country, and globally we are considered to have world-leading research infrastructure and programs.” The panel found the following key findings: • The six research fields in which Canada excels are: clinical medicine, historical studies, information and communication technologies (ICT), physics and astronomy, psychology and cognitive sciences, and visual and performing arts. • Canadian science and technology is healthy


Ron Cannan and growing in both output and impact. With less than 0.5 per cent of the world’s population, Canada produces 4.1 per cent of the world’s research papers and nearly five per cent of the world’s most frequently cited papers. • In a survey of over 5,000 leading international scientists, Canada’s scientific research enterprise was ranked fourth highest in the world, after the United States, United Kingdom, and Germany.

• Canada is part of a network of international science and technology collaboration that includes the most scientifically advanced countries in the world. Canada is also attracting high-quality researchers from abroad, such that over the past decade there has been a net migration of researchers into the country. • Ontario, Quebec, British Columbia and Alberta are the powerhouses of Canadian science and technology, together accounting for 97 per cent of total Canadian output in terms of research papers. These provinces also have the best performance in patent-related measures and the highest per capita numbers of doctoral students, accounting

Kelowna student Jennifer Andrews is now $2,000 closer to reaching her educational goals after winning the 2012 Envision Financial Education Award. Sixteen of these $2,000 scholarships are awarded annually to secondary and post-secondary students throughout the province who are EnJennifer Andrews vision members and have demonstrated outstanding scholastic ability combined with exceptional community volunteer service. Andrews is an active community advocate, having spent three years volunteering at the Kelowna Community Food Bank and been a member of the studentrun non-profit organization Students in Free Enterprise (SIFE). Through her volunteer work, Andrews has also positively impacted her peers through SIFEâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Roadmap to Financial Success project, which teaches students how to reach their future financial goals. She has also volunteered with the Senior Outreach and Visitor Centre, the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation and the Kelowna Hospital Auxiliary. Andrews is excited to start the year with a semester abroad at the EDHEC Business School in Lille, France, and then continue with her third year of the business administration program at Okanagan College. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are pleased to recognize the hard work and dedication that Jennifer has shown to both her education and her community,â&#x20AC;? said Shelley Besse, president of Envision Financial. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jennifer is a shining example of an up-and-coming community leader and we wish her well on her education journey.â&#x20AC;?

If you are considering adopting Ollie, we strongly recommend experience with the breed. He is a typical Beagle...very scent oriented. He is friendly, exuberant, playful, outgoing and yes...sometimes vocal. He has been mostly an outside dog, and is searching for someone to be with and love. Ollie needs an owner whom he can ond with and develop into a good family companion. He is good with dogs, not cats, loves life and expending his energy (ie: walks, runs, hiking). If you have the ideal home, please come and meet him.

BUDDY ID#280590


November 3, 2012 6 pm Coast Capri Hotel Tickets at Kelowna Shelter:






Junior and Buddy’s owners had no time for them! It is IMPERATIVE that their new guardian(s) have experience with the Jack Russell breed, and to understand that they will not be a ‘lap dog’. They are not compatible with cats, so please NO CATS in the house. Junior is fearful of thunder and will hide, he also loves swimming and sun basking. Buddy is a Purebred with Papers.They are extremely active and can become destructive from sheer boredom if left alone too long. Once you have bonded, they are both loving, affectionate and protective dogs, obedient and outgoing, and still a great addition to the right family. Owner surrender

We could not located his owner, so Lexington is now looking for his ‘forever home’. Lexi is going to make a wonderful play companion for another dog, as he romps all day with his canine buddies. He just loves life and people...but NO CATS. He is full of spunk, so would benefit from an active home with older children as he has a tendency to jump. Please come down and meet Lexi if you can find a place in your life for him.

In the time we have had Jim he has shown that he is a very laid back pussy cat who prefers to lounge anywhere he happens to fall. Him gets a long well with people and has a ‘nothing fazes me’ attitude. He would suit either an active, or low key environment. If you think that he would make a good fit for your home, please come down and ask for an introduction. Came in as a stray

Westie is a very affectionate girl. She would appreciate a nice, quiet home, as she can become stressed somewhat easily. Her fav game is hide and seek, but she doesn’t like to be chased around, just found and cuddled. She will sit in your lap and purr away, although she can be a little skittsh around young children. Westie will be a rewarding companion if she is given the chance. Came in as stray

Sly came to us with his brother Ving. He is your typical playful, energetic, lovable young adult who can be a bit on the timid side at first, but quickly warms up. He would be a great addition to any family. He also gets along well with other felines. Please come down and ask the staff for an introduction.

9 MONTHS OLD CHIHUAHUA/YORKSHIRE TERRIER X NEUTERED MALES The neighbours complained so that is why these 2 adorable boys are now at the shelter. Their breed can be quite the diggers and will run free if they escape, so a secure fence line is mandatory. We would love them to go to the same home, but the best home is most important... together or apart. They are used to being carried everywhere so are not great on the leash yet. They should never be taken anywhere off leash, being small and shy they may not return to you if scared off!. Both dogs would be a joy for any family that has the time and love to offer. They are both good with cats and dogs.

Kylie was just found wandering the streets. She is super affectionate and would so love to find her ‘forever home’. She would be a great friend for anybody, as she absolutely loves to interact. There are so many great things about her that you just have to meet her in ‘cat’! You won’t be disappointed. Found in Glenrosa

CUISINE from Judeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kitchen Curt's barbecue At the Capital News, Curt Jensen is the BBQ King. And, being a generous guy, he was eager to share not only tastes of his favourite pulled pork, but even his recipe for a full-meal-deal pulled pork lunch or dinner. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not a big fan of the overly sweet sauces that sometimes are poured over pulled pork, so I was quite happy with Curtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. Seems to me if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s properly cooked, it should remain moist and shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need a syrupy sauce poured over it. You need to set aside a full day of loafing around or doing interruptable things in order to barbecue, as in smoking meat, so make sure youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all prepared before you begin. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s some different feelings about what wines pair well with barbecued pulled pork, or if it has to be beer, but I think the Okanaganâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Rigamarole Red, with its robust berry flavours would be a good match with this recipe, since it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a sickly sweetness about it. But, you could try a dry riesling as well. Rigamarole Red is a blend of cab sauvignon, gamay, pinot noir and merlot grapes and it makes a nice sipping combination as well. For more great recipes, along with wine pairing notes by renowned wine writer John Schreiner, pick up a copy of my book, Judeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Kitchen wherever books or sold, or at many local wine shops as well. Incidentally, congratulations to all those who picked up medals at this year's B.C. Wine Awards. There are some excellent wines among them.

Curt's Baked Beans Curt says this recipe is a fourthgeneration family favourite. 5 cans beans (2 navy, 1 black, 1 pinto, 1 other) 1 can condensed tomato soup 1 tbsp. (15 ml) chili powder 1 green pepper, chopped 1 medium onion, chopped 1-2 c. (250-500 ml) smokies (or other smoked meat like ham, turkey pepperoni sticks, brisket, bacon)

salt, to taste 1-2 tbsp. (15-30 ml) maple syrup

Pulled Pork for Sandwiches

Chop the meat and mix it all together in a crock pot or slow cooker. Simmer on high for a minimum Curt recommends you use hickory wood chips in of four to six hours or on low for your smoker for the best results with this recipe. eight to 10 hours. If baking them in the oven, use a 6 to 9 lb. (3 to 4 kg) pork brisket roast large casserole dish or roasting pan and stir it occasionally.


Curt's Slaw This makes a nice, colourful cabbage salad.

COLESLAW DRESSING: 1 c. (250 ml) mayonnaise 1/2 c. (125 ml) liquid from your favorite jar of pickles pepper, to taste Use a whisk or hand blender to beat together until smooth.



1/2 green cabbage, finely chopped or grated 1/2 red cabbage, finely chopped or grated 4 carrots peeled and thinly sliced Add what you feel is the right amount of dressing to the chopped raw vegetables and toss it together, adding more dressing until the salad reaches the desired creaminess. Refrigerate any extra dressing, along with the salad until youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re ready to serve it.

yellow mustard 1 tbsp. (15 ml) Worcestershire Sauce 1 c. (250 ml) paprika 4 tbsp. (60 ml) garlic powder 2 tbsp. (30 ml) onion powder 2 tbsp. (30 ml) crushed chili pepper 2 tbsp. (30 ml) cracked black pepper 2 crushed bay leaves 3 c. (750 ml) light brown sugar 1 c. (250 ml) honey Rub yellow mustard and Worcestershire sauce all over the brisket roast. Combine remaining ingredients well and put into a very large plastic freezer bag set in a tray, just in case thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a hole in it. Add the roast to the marinade in the bag, close it tightly and massage the marinade all over the surface of

the roast. Refrigerate overnight, or for at least 12 hours. Remove and let stand at room temperature for about an hour. Meanwhile, prepare your smoker, using hickory for a nice smokey flavour. Add a can of beer to a few inches of water in a shallow pan and put it under where the roast will sit, as a drip tray. Cook at a low temperature of about 220 F, low and slow, cooking for at least 14 hours to 16 hours. Flip it over only once but make sure you baste it with the leftover marinade every hour until you run out of it. Use the water/beer mixture in your drip tray to continue basting once youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve used all the marinade. You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want the meat to dry out. At the end of cooking (at an internal temperature of about 185 F) wrap it in tin foil for one more hour, to keep it juicy while it cools enough to handle it. Then use two forks to shred it. If you don't have a smoker, you can get good flavour in a low oven (220 F) in about five or six hours. Fill a roasting pan with water part-way up the side and add a cup of chicken broth, a beer and 1 tsp. of liquid smoke. Add the brisket and put tin foil across the top of the roasting pan, then cover with a lid. Baste it once. When itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cooked, continue as in the smoker instructions.
