BUS ROUTES FACING THE AXE Joe Fries

Western News Staff

A silver lining on the proposed reduction in Greyhound Canada trip frequencies could be the new opportunities it might create for competition in public transportation, says a local politician. The bus company has applied to the B.C. Passenger Transportation Board to eliminate one route and reduce minimum service levels on 15 of its 18 other routes in the province. On the Kelowna-Penticton run, the minimum is proposed to drop from 56 weekly trips to 28, while the minimum on the VancouverRock Creek route, which makes stops in Keremeos, Osoyoos and Penticton, could be halved from 28 to 14. In its application, the company claimed it lost $14 million on its B.C. routes last year due to increased costs for fuel and maintenance, re-

duced ridership and an “inÀexible” regulatory regime that prevents it from responding quickly to market forces. The company did not respond to requests for comment. Penticton Mayor Dan Ashton called Greyhound’s proposal “disappointing.” While he understands the company’s needs to rein in costs, he thinks it should also look at ways to increase revenue, like nicer terminals or better buses. Ashton, who also chairs the board of the Regional District of Okanagan-Similkameen, said if Greyhound does reduce service, it could leave the door open for more nimble carriers to ¿ll demand on a regional basis. “In my personal opinion, I think there is a lot of room for private and public transportation,” Ashton said, citing the potential promise of Osoyoos-Vernon and Princeton-Kelowna routes. He expects both Penticton city council and

the RDOS board will discuss Greyhound’s application, in particular the impact it might have on people in outlying areas who ride buses to medical appointments, when both local governments meet next week. This week, Velma McGillivary was one of just a handful of people who caught Wednesday’s 2:40 p.m. bus out of Penticton. The retired health-care worker said she has heard of Greyhound’s proposed cutbacks, but doesn’t think they’ll affect her as she makes the round trip from Coquitlam to Penticton just twice annually to visit relatives. “It’s sure served me well,” McGillivary said. “I’ve taken it for years.” The 2:40 p.m. northbound departure is one that Greyhound has proposed to eliminate. According to its application, the route left Penticton with an average of 7.95 passengers each day between July 2011 and June 2012. Per-passenger revenue equalled $2.18 per mile, less than half

the company’s stated break-even cost of $5.69 per mile. Public comments on the proposed changes will be accepted by the Passenger Transportation Board until Oct. 17. The board tries to rule on applications within 60 to 90 days of receipt, which means a decision should come before the end of the year. Greyhound originally asked in August that its application be fast-tracked through the assessment process without a public comment period because of mounting ¿nancial losses. But the board ruled against that request because the proposed changes are “comprehensive and will affect many communities.” That ruling also states that Greyhound told the board that if its application is not approved, all of its operations in B.C. “will be at risk of discontinuance.” The full application is available online at www.greyhound.ca.

Proposed riding changes draw flak Steve Kidd Western News Staff

Residents of both the Okanagan-Coquihalla and Boundary Similkameen federal ridings made it clear Tuesday that they have some serious concerns over a proposed realignment of the riding boundaries. The major issue for many speakers was splitting Summerland and Penticton into separate ridings, and possibly cleaving the social and economic ties that join the two communities together. “Summerland and Penticton have never been divided into two federal ridings since B.C. entered Confederation,” said Jason Cox, who joined with Connie Denesiuk from Summerland to present a combined view of the chambers of commerce in both communities. “There is an almost continuous residential link between these two communities,” said Denesiuk. “The proposed changes take away from our ability to advocate as a unit and diminish the sense of community these neighbouring towns enjoy as we approach national issues together.” They were speaking to the Federal Electoral Boundaries Commission for British Columbia, which was in Penticton to gather opinions on the proposed boundary changes, which would see Summerland as part of a riding stretching from Merritt to West Kelowna, while Penticton would join with Oliver, Osoyoos and a portion of the West Kootenay over to Castlegar. Losing the ability to act as a unit federally was a concern also expressed by Penticton Mayor Dan

Steve Kidd/Western News

SITTING IN FRONT of a map displaying proposed riding changes, Penticton Mayor Dan Ashton explains the concerns of the city and the regional district to the three-member Federal Boundary Riding Commission.

Ashton, who was also speaking as chair of the Regional District of Okanagan-Similkameen. His concern is that splitting the two communities into separate ridings will interfere with their ability to work jointly to get federal grants. “By working together and working very cohesively together, we have been very successful in insuring those dollars do come,” said Ashton. “There is a de¿nite link between Penticton and surrounding municipalities, including the District of

Summerland and those communities in the Similkameen that are slated for adjustment.” Former Summerland councillor Carla Ohmenzetter expressed similar concerns, pointing out that the change might affect relations with the Penticton Indian Band, which has lands bordering both communities. “The new borders would eliminate that opportunity to speak with them in a venue that is formally recognized by the federal government,” said Ohmenzetter.

“We have a long history of working together as the two communities. I think we have bene¿ted extremely well, we work very hard together and because of that, we are seeing some great progress.” Ohmenzetter and others listed a long range of services and other factors shared by the two communities, including courts, shopping and even a common school district. The number of people expressing concerns about the division of Penticton and Summerland provoked a comment from Oliver resi-

dent Allan Mathieson. “Listening to the people here talking about Penticton and Summerland, I felt you people had a romance going,” said Mathieson. However, he had concerns about stretching a new riding to include the West Kootenay, pointing to the strong north-south bias of the valley. “I live in Oliver and I golf in Osoyoos and my wife and I always have our operations done in Penticton,” Mathieson joked. He feels there was little connection to the eastern side of the proposed new riding. “I can’t remember the names of those places, because I have never gone to them,” he said. “You have to go over three mountain ranges to get to Castlegar.” Arlene Arlow, of Keremeos, approved of the inclusion of Penticton into a new South Okanagan-West Kootenay riding. Including a major government and trading centre, she said, would help avoid the problem of the western side of the riding being overlooked, as she felt happened in the current Boundary Similkameen riding, with the major population centres on the Kootenay side. However, cutting the Similkameen Valley in half, along Highway 3, did not make sense. “It is logical to maintain the trade and commerce relationships that exist along Highway 3,” she said, also noting that the new boundary would split apart lands of the Lower Similkameen Indian Band. “The communities of the LSIB — west and east of Keremeos — are served by their band of¿ce in Keremeos.”

Concepts for Penticton waterfront put to public Steve Kidd Western News Staff

Despite vocal opposition to the ¿rst two proposals for revitalizing the Okanagan Lake waterfront, they will be presented as options during a public forum next week, when the public will get a chance to review two new proposals. Council got its ¿rst look at two new concepts generated by the Waterfront Enhancement Select Committee at a special council meeting Wednesday. Both concepts are much more conservative than the two proposals brought forward in August, with concept 3 doing little more than repairing the infrastructure problems. Concept 4 makes some minor enhancements to create a wider walking path along

the waterfront. Both, however, include greater accessibility to allow handicapped access to the beach and water at various points. The cost is considerably lower as well. If all aspects of the ¿rst two concepts had been implemented, the costs would have been in the range of $7 million, over and above the $1.2 million in gas tax grants the city has set aside for the project. In contrast, concept 3 would cost about $75,000 while concept 4 would be about $550,000, in addition to the $1.2 million. Mayor Dan Ashton said the ¿rst two concepts would have been too costly to implement in full. “The city doesn’t have $7 million,” said Ashton. But both remain on the table, he said, for continuing public input. All the plans were developed, he said, with

input from the public on what they desired for the waterfront and it is up to the public to say what parts they support. “It is important to hear what the community has to say before any decision is made,” said Ashton. “Any combination thereof or new additions to put into it.” Ashton and other councillors also made the point that they have not come to any decision about which they prefer and are instead wanting more public input. “These are concepts, this was input from people and citizens of Penticton,” said Ashton. “Council has heard loud and clear about the concerns over concepts 1 and 2.” The ¿rst two concepts met with strong opposition over changes in the traf¿c pattern along Lakeshore Drive and the replacement of the current angle parking with parallel.

Valid only at Penticton location. Not valid with any other offer. Offer subject to change.

One of the most vocal was Clifford Martin, who arranged a protest on Lakeshore to rally opposition and raise public awareness. Martin is concerned that the inclusion of the original two plans in the public forum means the parking and traf¿c changes may still be implemented, and in his view, ruin what he calls the best beach in Western Canada. Martin is planning a second rally on Saturday at 11 a.m. on Lakeshore Drive between Main Street and the Peach area to again raise awareness of the proposed changes. All four proposals will be on display on Tuesday at city council chambers and the community centre. On Wednesday, they will be on display at the Penticton Trade and Convention Centre from noon to 6 p.m., with a public forum starting at 6 p.m.

For an hour on Wednesday morning, the world was a slightly nicer place as Leadership 9 students from Penticton Secondary performed random acts of kindness at school and in the community. Don Tape, who owns Green Beanz Cafe, was “somewhat taken aback” when two of those students walked into his shop around 8 a.m. and handed him an apple and a small strip of paper with an inspirational quote printed on it. “Spreading goodwill is a nice thing,” said Tape, who likes the idea of the Leadership class. “It gets them out seeing how businesses operate and (gives them) a little taste of the real world, that’s it’s not so big, bad and scary out there.” He also said seeing teenagers perform random acts of kindness could help others see youth in a better light. “I know lots of good kids; I just raised a daughter who’s 20 now,” Tape said. “But it’s good to see the attitude that they’re showing ... and it’s good to see kids doing things and showing

an interest in things other than themselves.” Tape’s good tidings were delivered by Emma Brown and Kamryn Corsi, both of whom are 14 and pleased with the results of their efforts. “I liked the fact that someone told us we made their day,” said Brown, who also thinks the exercise will help her become more outgoing. “Usually I don’t go up and talk to people I don’t know, because I used to think it was, like, scary or something. But I think I’m going to be a lot better at socializing

after this.” Corsi said her early morning visit to the city centre provided a different view of it than the one to which she is accustomed. “You get to see different sides of people, people who are at work, and maybe you run into someone you don’t normally see, like Don at the coffee shop,” Corsi said. “And it was nice to make people’s days, to see a smile that early in the morning. That makes me feel good, too.” That was one of the aims of the exercise,

con¿rmed Karen Boyd, who teaches the elective Leadership class, which meets once a week before the regular school day. “That’s certainly part and parcel of what we’re trying to do: Let them see that in doing good for others it makes us feel strong and enabled,” Boyd said. But she’s also trying to help the students learn about “selÀessness” and “that the world doesn’t owe them everything. That it’s time also to offer up something to the world.”

A place to stay forever PUBLIC NOTICE FLUSHING OF WATER MAINS The Works Division will commence its annual unidirectional water main flushing program within the Municipal area on commencing September 17 - October 31, 2012. Advantages of adopting a unidirectional water main flushing program will result in significant system improvements and cost savings such as: • increased water velocity, which promotes better pipeline scouring • improved mineral and biological deposit removal • taste and odour control • reduction of turbidity • elimination of waterline re-fouling • reduced frequency of mainline flushing • reduced water usage • opportunity for infrastructure preventative maintenance (valve and hydrant exercising)

• cost savings over traditional flushing. This may result in the water supply showing sediment and discoloration in various areas. This sediment is bacterially harmless, however, may cause some discoloration to laundry if not detected. To avoid any inconvenience check water color prior to using. If you do experience dirty water, simply run a cold water tap until water clears up. We thank you for your cooperation and apologize for any inconvenience you experience.

Cigarette sparks knife attack Kristi Patton Western News Staff

A “dangerous” and “violent” man is how a witness described a Penticton man accused of an assault in 2011. “I remember seeing the blade poking into Kenny’s stomach in his left side, there was a hole. I saw where he stabbed him,” recalled Christine McDonald while on the stand at the Penticton courthouse on Tuesday. “He just went mental and attacked Kenny.” She was speaking of Kevin Woods, who was arrested and charged with the assault of Kenny Robertson along with charges of assault causing bodily harm and possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose on July 13, 2011. RCMP were called to the apartment complex on 130 Skaha Pl. because of an altercation between two residents that left Robertson with a knife wound and bruises. McDonald, who lived across the hallway from Woods in the apartment building, said she had called 911 that day. It was from inside her apartment that she initially heard her friend Robertson, who she has known for more than a decade, talking in the hallway. “I heard noises and Kenny in the hallway talking about a cigarette and asking Kevin for one. Then I heard Kenny say leave my little sister alone,” she testi¿ed, later adding Robertson often referred to her as his little sister. McDonald looked out her peephole before opening her apartment door and said she saw Woods “lunge” towards Robertson and stab him in the abdomen. She said Woods laughed as he trailed the knife along the hallway wall leaving a scratch mark that was later documented by RCMP. McDonald said Woods then began beating Robertson, who had fallen to the Àoor in a fetal position,

with a foot-long piece of rebar on his back and legs. “It was nuts. I have never seen anything like it in my life,” said McDonald, who recalled Robertson being hit at least four times with the rebar. “I was scared. I was horri¿ed.” Next she said Woods ran down the hall towards the elevator and eventually Robertson left towards another exit. McDonald said Woods then returned to his apartment before he was arrested by RCMP. On cross-examination by defence counsel Andrew Vandersluys, McDonald told the court that Robertson had a no-contact order with her since last summer because of an incident of him being violent towards her, even though she earlier testi¿ed she had not spoke with Robertson since the assault. Robertson took the stand late Tuesday and again on Wednesday morning, stating he was drinking that day but was not “blasted” and did not know what sparked the assault. Vandersluys suggested to Robertson that he had a knife and was the one that initiated a confrontation with Woods to defend his “little sister’s” honour. Robertson

said he had gone to the second Àoor to simply buy a cigarette off a friend down the hall. “I had nothing to do with no knife ... that is a lie, a total lie. I had no weapons,” said Robertson, who added he has also been clean of drugs for about two years. Vandersluys also questioned the man about the statement he made to RCMP after the incident where he claimed to have a second-degree black belt and that Woods was “lucky I was drinking at the time. I would have ripped his head off.” Robertson said the claim he held a black belt was exaggerated, but he did put his arm around the neck of Woods at one point during the scufÀe. “I grabbed him and threw him down. I was trying to save my bacon, which I think anyone in that situation would,” said Robertson. Woods was excused by his counsel early on Wednesday morning because he was feeling ill. Judge Meg Shaw adjourned the trial for a one-day continuation with three witnesses remaining to be questioned. No date has been set for the continuation.

Agur Lake Camp seeks removal from ALR Joe Fries Western News Staff

As a special camp for disabled children inches its way towards completion, regulatory work continues behind the scenes. The Agur Lake Camp Society, which is building a barrier-free, outdoor paradise in the wilderness near Summerland, has applied to have its main leased property excluded from the Agricultural Land Reserve. That application was sent to the Regional District of Okanagan-Similkameen board last week for comments. A smaller, adjacent property that is under lease from Robin Agur was removed from the ALR in 2005 because of what the commission considered its limited potential for agricultural use due to its rough topography and high altitude. Allan Patton, the RDOS director for rural Oliver, said he was concerned that the 11.6 hectares of Crown land under the camp and subject to the most recent exclusion application is improperly zoned as a resource area. “Resource area means there’s lot of allowable uses other than this camp, and I would like this area to be speci¿c to this camp,” said Patton, who also worried that once the 99-year lease on the land expires, it could be put to some other use. RDOS Director Michael Brydon, whose area includes Agur Lake, told the board that the resource desig-

nation is fairly restrictive. Other allowed uses, he noted, include a golf course, animal hospital and one singlefamily dwelling. “There’s nothing really here that ... raised any red Àags to me,” Brydon said. Patton concluded there are different allowable uses for resources areas in different parts of the RDOS and dropped his objection. “I’m totally in favour of this whole operation... I’m just saying I’d like to have the zoning reÀect what the use is,” he said. Brydon asked the board to refer the application to his area’s advisory planning commission, which will study the matter and then make a recommendation to the board and the ALC. “I think (the committee) will look upon it favourably and it will be one more piece of community input going to the ALC to move this along,” Brydon said. After the meeting, he explained that the camp society previously applied to have the site designated for nonfarm use as a stop-gap measure to allow work to begin on the cabins. “But full exclusion from the ALR is a preferred outcome since it reÀects the actual use of the land and will signi¿cantly reduce the administrative burden on the (volunteer) society as they work towards their vision for the facility,” said Brydon, who noted that there is a risk the ALC will not approve the application.

Proposed riding shift ignores regional ties

T

he political battle lines in the Okanagan could undergo a major shift before the next federal election. But it won’t be happening without a ¿ght if a meeting Tuesday night in Penticton is any indication. The B.C. Federal Electoral Boundaries Commission met near-unanimous opposition from those on hand for Tuesday’s hearing in Penticton. The commission is looking at changes to provincial ridings after it was determined that B.C. should receive six new seats. While those additional ridings will be primarily situated in the Lower Mainland, with one on Vancouver Island, the commission is also recommending redrawing some federal boundaries. The plan put forward would shave Penticton off of the Okanagan-Coquihalla and tack it onto a new riding called South Okanagan-West Kootenay. That riding would be similar to the current Southern Interior riding, with Penticton added and Nelson shufÀed to an adjacent riding. And it’s here where the proposed changes seem to lose grasp of the geographic realities. The move would separate the closely linked communities of Penticton and Summerland, and cut off Keremeos from its western neighbours. The proposed riding shift would also break up the Kootenays’ Tri-Cities, splitting Nelson from Castlegar and Trail. The inconsistencies in the proposed riding changes leads one to believe the map was drawn up in Vancouver or Ottawa, without any thought given to the shared relationship between communities that help make up the fabric of a region. Or, cast in a more cynical light, it could appear the Conservative stronghold of Penticton is being used to tilt the scales in a riding that has swung for the NDP in recent years. We can only hope that the commission will give careful thought to the input it received Tuesday night, and take a closer look at the shared relationship of a region’s communities that go beyond the lines drawn on a map.

Crisis won’t topple Iranian regime Iran’s currency virtually collapsed last week, and the public protests that followed in Tehran stirred memories of the massive anti-regime protests of 2009. This has caused excited speculation in the United States and its allies about the imminent fall of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the abandonment of Iran’s uranium enrichment program, or even the end of the whole Islamic regime. Don’t hold your breath. Ahmadinejad blamed the currency crisis on the foreign sanctions that are crippling Iran’s trade, of course. His critics at home just blamed him: “The smaller part of the problem relates to sanctions while 80 per cent of the problem is rooted in the government’s mistaken policies,” said Ali Larijani, the speaker of the Iranian parliament. But he would say that, wouldn’t he? It’s true that Ahmadinejad has used the country’s large oil revenues to paper over some serious mistakes in running Iran’s economy, but the current crisis was caused by a steep fall in those revenues — which is directly due to the sanctions. Four rounds of United Nations-backed trade sanctions, ostensibly meant to stop Iran from developing nuclear weapons, had already cut the country’s oil exports from 2.5 million barrels a day to 1.5 million b/d by early this year. Then came new American

Gwynne Dyer

Dyer Straits sanctions that blocked any international bank doing business in Iran from access to the immense U.S. market — so most of them ended their dealings with Iran. In July came new European Union sanctions banning oil imports from Iran entirely. Since Europe was taking one-¿fth of Iran’s remaining oil exports, that blow was enough to send the Iranian rial into free-fall. Until 2009, the rate of exchange was fairly stable at about 10,000 rials to the dollar. Then it started to fall slowly, and then faster — and in a hectic few days last week, it tumbled a further 40 per cent to a low of 35,000 rials to the dollar. That was when the protests began in Tehran’s Grand Bazaar, whose merchants were amongst the strongest supporters of the revolution in 1979. The protests were contained without any deaths, and the shops

in the bazaar are now open again. The rial has recovered slightly, stabilizing at around 28,000 to the dollar. But that is one-third of what it was worth three years ago, and the effects are being felt in almost every household in the country. Formerly comfortable middle-class families are scrambling to put food on the table, and the poor are really suffering. So the sanctions are working, in the sense that they are hurting people. But what are they accomplishing in terms of their stated purpose of forcing Iran to abandon its nuclear weapons program? More importantly, perhaps, what are they achieving in terms of their unstated purpose: triggering an uprising that overthrows the whole Islamic regime? First of all, Iran doesn’t have a nuclear weapons program. The International Atomic Energy Agency and the U.S. and Israeli intelligence service are all agreed on that, although the public debate on the issue generally assumes the contrary. Iran says it is developing its ability to enrich uranium fuel for use in reactors, which is perfectly legal under the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. Israel’s current government has talked itself into a state of existential panic over Iran’s uranium enrichment program, but the U.S. government certainly doesn’t believe that Iran has any immediate plans to build nuclear weapons. So what are these sanc-

tions really about? Overthrowing the Iranian regime, of course. American sanctions against Iran long predate any concerns about Iranian nuclear weapons, and would not be ended even if Iran stopped all work on uranium enrichment tomorrow. The U.S. legislation that imposes the sanctions makes that very clear. Before sanctions are lifted, the president must certify to Congress that Iran has “released all political prisoners and detainees; ceased its ... violence and abuse of Iranian citizens engaging in peaceful political activity; investigated the killings and abuse of peaceful political activists ... and prosecuted those responsible; and made progress toward establishing an independent judiciary.” In other words, it must dismantle the regime. Since stopping the enrichment program would not end the sanctions, why would the Iranian government even consider doing so? And will the Iranian people rise up and overthrow the regime because sanctions are making their daily lives very dif¿cult? Even anti-regime Iranians are proud and patriotic people, and the likelihood that they will yield to foreign pressures in that way is approximately zero.

Area in need of fire protection This is an open letter to Penticton’s mayor and council. On July 1 of this year, a house on Spiller Road caught ¿re and was a total loss. Spiller Road is in the Penticton city limits, but is without ¿re hydrant protection. The area is rural and a forest environment. Had the weekend been the type of weather that we had all wished for, the situation could have been one of a catastrophe. However, it had rained for the entire week prior. No one has forgotten the Garnet ¿re of ‘94, nor the devastation for Kelowna in ‘03, and there but for God’s grace could have been something of equal magnitude. I have been told that the amount of water to deal with a ¿re for the size of building that is the Red Rooster on Naramata Road is 32,000 gallons. Here on Spiller Road, we are currently protected by the amount of water that can be hauled by truck, and at that

Options affect us all

I wish to comment on statements made in a letter by Alena Zamorano regarding the upcoming plans to change the face of Lakeshore Drive. First, whether taxpayers are “discounted” or pay “full” property taxes, as you put it, has no bearing on having an opinion of what should be a decision on whether it is appropriate to spend $7,100,000 to change Lakeshore Drive. I am one of those letter writers who is ¿ghting for the right plan to keep Lakeshore as is. Option 3 is my choice. And I am a “full” property taxpayer as are several business owners and residents who support not letting our city planners and council change what is one of the best cruise strips in Canada. Discriminating against our senior population and “discounted” property taxpayers is a low blow to those that built Penticton to the city it is today. Cliff Martin is the driving force for Option 3 and he is raising a young family, so we are not a bunch of archaic people in old cars that are afraid of change. We are, in fact, concerned that if we don’t curve the spending of our city managers, we will lose more businesses in our city and those who will not be able to afford the property taxes that will occur. You also have to realize that one-way traf¿c will heavily impact Churchill and Alexander streets. If you lived on one of those streets you would be ¿ghting for your rights too. Had you attended the rally we organized you would have met young families as well as seniors and seen that it is more than a bunch of people afraid of change. This is a time of economic turmoil. It’s more important to encourage new business and increase employment in our city. The tourists already love com-

speed. As citizens of Penticton, the families on Spiller Road need the same level of ¿re protection that the rest of Penticton enjoys and sleeps with every night. Fire hydrants that are needed now here on Spiller Road are in the best interest of the 14 families who live here, and almost everyone else from Macmillan Road to the residences of Naramata. A ¿re the same as the one of July 1 could have easily spread into the community and caused untold devastation. This is not new information, as it has been discussed before. Please, let’s not wait for the next time to discuss this again. Place ¿re hydrants on Spiller Road. I am asking council to approve funds for the research and investigation into the cost of placing non-potable water in the vicinity of Spiller Road for ¿re protection and for control of ¿re from interface as result of a

ing to where we are so lucky to be living. Option 3 is the most logical choice for Lakeshore Drive. Option 1 and 2 have a price tag of over $7,100,000. Option 3 says let’s just ¿x what needs to be ¿xed and leave it alone. Option 4 comes with a cost of losing some sandy beach and widening sidewalks. We spend our summers on Lakeshore Drive, and the sidewalks are never crowded, so why change what is working. Just ¿x what needs to be ¿xed. Everyone has a say in what should occur on one of the best beach strips in Canada. I hope logic plays an important role in deciding the end result to what will happen to Lakeshore Drive. Lou Sloboda Penticton

Officials appreciated

To all hockey referees and linesmen: What a thankless job you each have. I have attended a few of the Vees’ hockey games. You poor guys are constantly screamed and yelled at. Well, I think you all do a super job and I would love to see some of these foolish spectators do your job just for one game, and maybe just maybe their childish behaviour would change for the better. Hats off to all of you for your endless efforts, which I personally respect. Lenore Bilinsky Penticton

Celebrating IODE

The week of Oct. 14-20, 2012 has been proclaimed National IODE Week in Canada. On Feb. 13, 1900, Margaret Polson Murray presented a charter and constitution, and the Imperial Order Daughters of the Empire was born. The ¿rst chapter was formed in Fredericton, N.B. On Oct 12, 1927, the Dia-

house ¿re where control was either lost or unable to have been established, such as the July 1 Spiller Road ¿re. There are currently two papers being written regarding ¿re protection in Penticton — by Valhalla Environment Consultants and Behr Consultants. Valhalla Environment Consultants are to review property owned by the city, and property only owned by the city, with regard to fuel management and thus would not investigate the circumstance of the Spiller Road ¿re. The people of Behr Consultants are generating a report on response assessment, which I am told that Spiller Road will be a part of. However, it still will not be dealing with the aspect of ¿re hydrants. Thank you for your time and consideration in this matter

mond Jubilee Chapter received its charter in Penticton. Members work with and for the people of Penticton with a focus on citizenship, education and social services. Through funds raised at the thrift shop at 464 Main St., $12,000 has been given this year to the community in the form of scholarships to both high schools and Okanagan College, Academy of Music, registered music teachers, Okanagan School of Dance, Kiwanis bursaries, South Okanagan Brain Injury Society, visually impaired books at the library, children’s program at the Atkinson Museum and monetary assistance to students attending Encounters with Canada in Ottawa. Support also goes to Christmas hampers, shut-ins at local nursing homes who have no families, Girl Guide and Boy Scout camps and Air Cadets. The local Rose Garden was established by the Diamond Jubilee Chapter and Golden Anniversary Chapter and continues to be funded annually. Denise Kadatz Penticton IODE

Riots about basic rights

The Arab riots are about a lot more than a video, it’s about people’s basic human rights, including the right to choose lifestyle, career and who to live with. It’s a ¿ght by Muslim men to retain what they insist is their right to undisputed control over their families. Through the centuries they have been using religion and claims about preservation of honour as a means to force their will on women and children. The Islamist Muslims are concerned about the liberal lifestyles practiced by western societies, and they are afraid that Muslim women and children will persist in adopting those lifestyles.

Burning the American Àag will change nothing. The real culprit is ‘mass media’ — the evolution and proliferation of YouTube, Facebook, television, cellphones and all those tablets. People around the world are being ‘connected’ like never before. There are no more secrets. Sharia is nothing more than a religious moral code, and just because Muslims commit to serve their God does not obligate anybody else to do the same. It is everybody’s basic human right to choose whether or not they want to believe in a God. Fighting the in¿del is the wrong battle. Instead, they need to declare war on poverty, separate from their tyrannical culture of hate and suppression, and embrace a future that includes education and employment. Andy Thomsen Summerland

Keeping your home safe from fire Each year, the Penticton Fire Department puts together a schedule of activities for Fire Prevention Week, which is designed to heighten awareness about what everyday people can do to reduce their ¿re risk hazard. Each community across North America does similar things as part of this long-standing tradition. But when did the tradition begin? Fire Prevention Week was established to mark the Great Chicago Fire, which began on Oct. 8, 1871, and continued through to Oct. 9, when it did most of its damage. More than 17,400 structures were destroyed and the ¿re burned more than 2,000 acres. According to the National Fire Prevention Association, the ¿re broke out after a cow belonging to Mrs. Catherine O’Leary kicked over a lamp, setting the barn on ¿re, which then spread to the whole city. There are a lot of myths surrounding what actually happened — if Mrs. O’Leary was even in the barn at the time of the ¿re, and whether a jumpy cow knocked over the lamp or rebellious neighbourhood children sneaking cigarettes sparked the blaze. Like any good story, the “case of the cow” has some truth to it. The great ¿re almost certainly started near the barn where Mrs. O’Leary kept her ¿ve milking cows. Regardless of how it started, the devastating ¿re scarred the community of Chicago: more than 250 people were killed and

100,000 were left homeless. Those who survived the Chicago ¿re never forgot what they’d been through, and tales of bravery and heroism were recounted for years after. But the ¿res also changed the way that ¿re¿ghters and public of¿cials thought about ¿re safety. On the 40th anniversary of the Great Chicago Fire, the Fire Marshals Association of North America decided that the anniversary of the Great Chicago Fire should be observed in a way that would keep the public informed about the importance of ¿re prevention. This has grown into a worldwide education campaign. From Oct. 7 to 13, the Penticton Fire Department is marking Fire Prevention Week by educating the younger generation about the importance of ¿re safety. We’re talking to them about not only the importance of having a smoke alarm, but maintaining it regularly. We are encouraging families to involve their children in developing home escape plans, and considering two safe ways out of every room in the event of a ¿re. This week we hope everyone plays an active role in ¿re prevention, because ¿re impacts our entire community. For information about Fire Prevention Week, visit www.penticton.ca.

Policy should be made in Canada

I read with interest the comments made by Penticton’s mayor regarding the decriminalization of marijuana, and although I am sure not all readers would agree with making it legal, I do wonder why we need to consult the U.S. of A. when it comes to these matters. I would think that we possess the necessary intelligence to make decisions in Canada without running to the States for permission whenever we come up against something they may ¿nd displeasing. It seems that more and more of our politicians at every level seem to believe that we must take into account what the Americans think. Hello, this is Canada. Whether you agree with the laws of this land or want to see them revamped, let’s leave the decision up to Canadians and forget what the boys and girls south of the border think. So far they haven’t proved to me or many others that they are any smarter than us great Canucks, eh. Tim Shewan Penticton

Resolution motivated by money

As noble as it sounds that the UBCM wants to ¿ght what the mayor of Metchosin calls the “enormous costs of enforcing a thoroughly discredited policy,” I’m afraid it has more to do with ¿ghting organized crime

for the $2.7 billion in annual cannabis revenue than it does ¿ghting organized crime. The Canadian justice system is a $13 billion a year industry (that doesn’t include the money spent on defence lawyers), and of that $13 billion, only $200 million is spent on police, courts and corrections costs involving marijuana. If the UBCM is really concerned with enforcement costs, a good place to start would be the 16 per cent of all guilty cases in Canada that involve drinking and driving, most of which could easily be handled in traf¿c court. I agree we need a more rational approach toward cannabis — licensing users works for me — but the UBCM’s resolution to decriminalize marijuana isn’t motivated by some noble attempt to stand up for ef¿ciency and public safety, it’s just the latest funding formula that conveniently preserves government’s prerogative for pandering legislation. What we need is a de¿nition of crime that prevents the production of a laterto-be-discredited policy, not a money grab that discredits the politicians who make the policy.

Six awarded Jubilee medals Western News Staff

Marion (Mugs) McConnell went from an inquisitive teen wondering about meditation to spreading the joys of yoga worldwide. With over 40 years of selÀess dedication to learning and teaching yoga, McConnell’s tireless effort is one of the primary reasons the South Okanagan enjoys such a vibrant and healthy yoga community. On Tuesday, she was given the Diamond Jubilee Medal. “I’m humbled very much by this and it is pretty overwhelming,” said McConnell, who moved to Naramata in 1971 as a teen and lived in the area for over 30 years. In recognition to outstanding contributions to the Okanagan region, McConnell, along with ¿ve other people, were presented with the Diamond Jubilee Medal. It was created in honour of the 60th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth’s accession to the throne. McConnell was introduced to yoga in 1973 and instantly fell in love with it. Five years later she trained to become an instructor in the Bahamas and returned to Penticton to teach. She believes she has trained over 300 people worldwide to be instructors from as far as Norway by distance education to those right in the South Okanagan. “I want people to meditate and understand the gifts yoga has other than just the physical body part. I feel really blessed people are wanting to learn that,” she said. This week, Okanagan Coquihalla MP Dan Albas also presented the medals to South Okanagan residents from all walks of life who are being recognized for their signi¿cant contributions to communities or their achievements abroad that brought credit to Canada. Nikos Theodosakis was one of those recognized as he works to improve the lives of others and inspire youths through the OliveUs Education Society. He has been involved in many different trades including musician, ¿lmmaker, educator, speaker and entrepreneur. His passionate approach and take on education

Q: A:

Flu and cold season is coming what can I do to protect myself?

With cooler weather and kids back in school comes an increase in colds and flu. Every day we encounter germs and viruses but it all depends on Bobbi the strength of our immune system whether we will become sick or not. Many may already know when they are at risk for becoming ill, as it is usually occurs after being run down with stress, lack of sleep, unhealthy eating, etc. The good news is you can give your immune system a boost to avoid being susceptible.

RIDING NDP MP opposes changes

$

Alex Atamanenko, the NDP MP for Boundary Similkameen, expressed concerns that an MP would have even more trouble serving such a varied riding, which if implemented, would be the largest in B.C. with a population of over 114,000. There is a large difference, he said, in the needs of a collection of smaller communities and an area with a metropolitan community like Penticton. “Sometimes, decisions made on the

If Penticton were to be included, it would pose some problems, with large populations on either side of the riding not having direct access to their members of Parliament. “This current riding, although not

Okanagan Coquihalla MP Dan Albas chose not to make a presentation, preferring to leave it to the residents and of¿cials of the various communities. “I am really here to listen.

MADISON MACKENZIE (right) was inspired by her older sister Taylor Mackenzie (left) to start dancing. Madison was one of eight 12-year-olds chosen by the National Ballet School in Toronto to join the program this year.

Ballerina balancing school and dance Kristi Patton Western News

For over 50 years thousands of amazing dancers have walked through the doors of Canada’s National Ballet School, and now it is one Penticton girl’s turn. Madison Mackenzie, who had been studying at Okanagan Dance Studios in Penticton, was one of eight 12-yearolds chosen during the auditions for the prestigious program in Toronto. It is a dream come true for the girl who has been dancing since she was three years old, following in the footsteps of her older sister Taylor Mackenzie. Madison is joining dancers from all over the world who attend the full-time professional program, where they divide their time between school and dance training. She is in

school from 8:30 a.m. to noon, does a ballet class, goes back to school for a class, then ¿nishes the day with a dance class. While ballet is not the only style the students learn, it is Madison’s favourite. “I feel I can really express myself when I do ballet. It makes me feel really good because it feels so natural and it is so much fun to be able to dance everyday,” said Madison. “It just makes me feel great and I love it.” Established in 1959, Canada’s National Ballet School is one of the world’s foremost training institutions for aspiring young dancers and teachers. The school is the only ballet academy in North America to provide elite dance training, academic instruction and residential care on the same campus. A progressive curriculum, with its empha-

sis on the physical and emotional well-being of the student, has put NBS at the forefront of dance training internationally. It has produced elite dancers like Karen Kain, who after graduating was invited to join the National Ballet of Canada. She is a dancer Madison looks up to. “She is very interesting and kind of like me. Karen Kain had a goal to be a professional ballerina. It was her dream and she made it happen. That is my dream and I am working to make it happen,” said Madison. The Penticton dancer had auditioned for the ballet school the previous year and was accepted but felt she wasn’t ready to leave her family. This summer when she was accepted she felt the timing was right, a scholarship to the school has helped make it all possible.

At the end of each academic year, the students progress is tested and if they continue to excel, they have the option of returning the next year. Graduates of the program have the opportunity to develop full-time dance careers, as the school is af¿liated with ballet companies and institutions around the world. Madison isn’t quite looking that far ahead just yet, but she is excited to be at the school, in Toronto and is looking forward to performing the Nutcracker this Christmas before returning home to spend the holidays with her family and friends. While her mom Laurie said it was hard to let her daughter move so far away, she knew Mackenzie had a passion for dancing at a very young age. “It’s tough. But I have to let her follow her dream,” said Laurie.

Loads of laughs lined up for comedy festival Western News Staff

If you are looking for a laugh, then you don’t want to miss the Community Foundation of the South Okanagan’s Comedy Festival on Oct. 20 in Penticton. The lineup includes three comedians who have been featured on every major show on the circuit including the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Conan O’Brien, Just For Laughs and more. This year the event will have comedians Matt Kirshen, Alonzo Bodden and David Crowe on stage. Kirshen was a ¿nalist on NBC’s Last Comic Standing and his youthful looks disguise a veteran comic with almost a decade of experience. He also opened for Jimmy Fallon on a college tour promoting his late-night show. Bodden was introduced to America on Last Comic Standing when he was the runner up on Season 2 and then came back to win the title in Season 3. Since then he has been a regular on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno and a fa-

vourite guest on Adam Corolla’s radio show and podcast. Seattle, Wash, based comedian, Crowe, recently had his own one-hour comedy special on Showtime which he produced himself. At the Edinburgh Fringe Festival he received three perfect ¿ve-star reviews and was described as having an “absolutely captivating nerdy charisma.” The comedy festival takes place on Oct. 20 at the Barking Parrot. Tickets are $60 per person and include dinner, an auction and all three comedians shows. They are available for purchase at the Lakeside Resort or from Community Foundation board members. Doors open to the show at 6 p.m., dinner is at 6:30 p.m. and the show begins at 8 p.m. For the past 12 years the Community Foundation has hosted world-class comedians and thanks to signi¿cant support from Investors Group and the friends of the foundation, all proceeds from this event go to operating the foundation.

Johnny Cash tribute show Western News Staff

A long-time admirer of the legendary Johnny Cash, Gary Kehoe created a tribute show to the man in black. Since 2004, Kehoe has toured throughout B.C. sharing the songs of Cash and on Oct. 18 at 7 p.m. at the Barking Par-

rot he will be performing his tribute show, The Life and Times of Johnny Cash. The show is being hosted by Grandmothers for Africa and all proceeds will help African grandmothers raise HIVAIDS orphaned grandchildren via the Stephen Lewis Foundation. As of 2011, Kehoe’s The Life and Times of Johnny Cash show has appeared regularly in theatres, casinos, music festivals and rodeos right across the country. With over 600 performances it has become the longest running Johnny Cash Tribute show in Canada said Kehoe. With all of Penticton

that experience Kehoe said he has received positive comments from audience members including people who tell him they never got to see Cash in person and now they feel they have. Kehoe is also a established songwriter who performs under the name Black Bart, with ¿ve CDs recorded. The Life and Times of Johnny Cash tribute show being held in Penticton will include lesser-known historical facts about Cash and a full audio-visual element. Tickets for the show are $10 and available at the Lakeside Resort front desk. G Gallery

This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Showcase is bringing a variety of acts from ballet to a unicycling balancing act to the stage for Okanagan families. The Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Showcase Society is a non-proÂżt organization which has been dedicated to making quality live performances accessible to Okanagan families for almost 30 years. This year the showcase kicks off with the Goh Ballet Youth Company on Oct. 14 at the Cleland Theatre in Penticton. Established in 1978, the Goh Ballet Youth Company has toured extensively throughout B.C., Asia and Europe. The company is a starting ground for dancers who have gone on to win prestigious international competitions and taken positions with top professional dance companies. The Goh Ballet Youth Company showcases repertoire from classical, ballet, contemporary and national dances from around the world, providing youth an opportunity to be exposed to these different stylistic moves. The performance includes a guided journey through the development of ballet and dances from other parts of the world, a glimpse at the rigours and discipline of training and the history and evolution of dance. On Nov. 25 the showcase will feature Charles Dickensâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; A Christmas Carol featuring a cast of nearly 100 actors, singers, dancers, musicians, jugglers and Âżre eaters. In this take on the fabled story, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opening night and due to impossible demands being made on them all of the actors have quit just prior to the performance â&#x20AC;&#x201D; except one. The producer de-

clares the show must go on and the lone remaining cast member not wanting to disappoint the throngs of children and families agrees to help out. Together they take to the stage and perform the entire play themselves. Over 50 characters, puppets, songs, dance numbers, Ă&#x20AC;ying ghosts and a heartwarming Âżnale are performed by just two actors at the Cleland Theatre. The second show for the Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Showcase will take place on Jan. 27 at Centre Stage in Summerland. Sharing traditions, history and culture of Africa through dance and storytelling is Jacky Essombe. Originally from Cameroon, now living in Vancouver, Essombe has toured with major recording artists and appeared on television and radio in Canada and France. Flyinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Bob takes the audience on a one-hour search for balance on March 3 at the Cleland Theatre, from the balance of peacock feather on his nose to a highwire walk. Through juggling, clowning, unicycling, acrobatics, wire-walking, audience participation and comedy â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Flyinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Bob stresses the importance of physical activity, concentration, peer support, community and the value of failure as well as success. For over 20 years across Canada and in 15 countries Flyinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Bob has performed in every venue imaginable from the street, stage, corporate ofÂżces, national television shows and schools. All shows take place on Sunday afternoons at 2 p.m. Tickets are $30 for all four shows and available at the Penticton Community Centre, Tumbleweed Gallery and the Summerland Chamber of Commerce.

Dentists provide free clinic

Steve Kidd Western News Staff

A free dental clinic at the end of September added 26 more patients to the count of people helped by a local dental access program. Last summer, with the help of dentist Dr. Amaal Ayoub, Greta Henning and a group of volunteers put on Penticton’s ¿rst free

Open Letter to Athletes, Volunteers and the Community We are at the early stages of the evolution of long course or iron distance triathlon in Penticton. Penticton’s race is epic in the sport! It is the third oldest long course triathlon in the world and the oldest race in North America, and our race predates the existence of the Ironman brand. The Challenge Penticton long course triathlon race promises to build on our strengths and result in a better race for the athletes and the community. The Penticton Triathlon Race Society has been created to operate the triathlon event and its related activities. Our goals are to: a) Run a safe, legal and fun sporting event, b) Create a festival environment which will provide interesting events for visiting families, volunteers and our community, and c) Retain the proceeds of the race in our community for the bene¿t of the community. The burden on the City has been substantially reduced. Other than providing in-kind services the City is not responsible for the operating results of the Race Society. The Penticton Triathlon Race Society is committed to being as open as possible. We will be hosting open houses over the coming year to provide updates on the progress of our race and festival plans and to seek input from the community. Our ¿rst open house will be in late November. The date and location of this ¿rst open house will be announced well in advance. We encourage you to stay up to date by checking our website and joining our community on Facebook and Twitter.

dental clinic, in an effort to provide relief for people who couldn’t otherwise afford dental treatment. Since then, Henning, with the help of volunteer dentists, has managed to arrange several more of the events in Penticton and one in Oliver and is working toward creating a permanent location for the clinic. Henning, a public health worker, said there is an ongoing need in the community for dental care. For reasons of poverty, mental illness and instability in many forms, she said, there are many who have trouble accessing dental care. The latest clinic saw Drs. Ian Dickinson and Ayoub perform 64 extractions and six ¿llings as well as some extensive scaling and pain relief on the patients they saw through the day-long clinic. “It was just fantastic. I am always nervous about how it is going to go off, but this was one of the smoothest,” said Henning. “There were some noshows from the appointments, but I did have a list of people that I hadn’t called yet. And I was able to call them in on short notice and they came and we treated.”

502 Martin Street Penticton

Henning is already planning the next clinic, with a Summerland dentist who has come forward to volunteer his services. She also has a major donor in the wings who is willing to help with the establishment of a permanent clinic. “Our application for charitable tax status is being processed now,” said Henning. “So he is waiting for that to happen because his donation dollar will go further if we have that status.” While many communities around the province have similar programs, Henning said they need to be tailored to the needs of the community. In larger centres, like Vancouver, they can be held in large venues, with an assortment of dentists and a stream of patients. “In Vernon, for instance, they are raising the money to buy the equipment prior to giving the treatment. We’re doing the opposite; we are treating people on a shoestring and working towards a freestanding clinic,” said Henning. “But you have to have the compliance of the dentists. If the dentists are willing to work with me, the way I am working, then it works.”

Oliver moms score in battle against cancer Sonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s battle with cancer prompts Oliver mom to organize team for Road Hockey to Conquer Cancer Kristi Patton

Western News Staff

Every three minutes a Canadian is diagnosed with cancer, and for Hunter Miller that diagnosis came on his 12th birthday. On what was supposed to be a day of celebration, the Oliver boy found out he had stagefour Hodgkinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lymphoma. His next eight months was a battle against the cancer that was attacking the cells of his lymphatic system. He travelled from his home in Oliver to Vancouver every month for treatment, only to have his grandfather die of lung cancer shortly after Hunter went into remission. It was from this story that eight moms have banded together to take up the battle against cancer by picking up hockey sticks, a game they have never played in their lives, for the Road Hockey to Conquer Cancer challenge. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hunter wanted to play for my dad but when we went online to look it up, you have to be 16 and he just turned 13,â&#x20AC;? said his mom Denise Oberg-Miller. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I decided to just ask some friends, many of them have kids in Hunterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s class, if they wanted to play and they were all in for it. It all happened so fast.â&#x20AC;? On Saturday, the Oliver women will take to the ball hockey courts at Concord PaciÂżc Place in Vancouver with over 100 teams to battle in Road Hockey to Conquer Cancer. The dawnto-dusk fundraising event will not only feature games but live music, celebrity appearances, interactive activities, food and beverages.

A GROUP OF eight moms from Oliver have been practising their road hockey skills since July to get ready for this weekendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Road Hockey To Conquer Cancer tournament in Vancouver. The moms have raised over $14,000 for the Canadian Cancer Society.

The eight moms will be playing under the team name Ginaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Rock, which stands for Giving In is Not Acceptable. While practices have been held once a week since July, the team has also been focused on reaching their $10,000 fundraising goal. Through barbecues, a charity game

against the Oliver Fire Department and booths at the Festival of the Grape, they have raised $14,374 (as of Wednesday afternoon) for the Canadian Cancer Society. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think it is important to be involved in events like Road Hockey to Conquer Cancer to raise the funds. If this was 10 years ago,

Hunter wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be here. It is like paying it forward and it is a fun event. We get to have a girls night out,â&#x20AC;? said Denise. She isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the only mom on the team whose son is a cancer survivor. Aiden Kirs, who is in Grade 8 with Hunter, has been cancer-free for 12 years after beating hepatoblastoma in the Âżrst year of his life. The moms coming together to form Ginaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Rock has only solidiÂżed their friendship and network of support. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This has been a great experience working with these ladies and it has shown that I am stronger than I thought I was,â&#x20AC;? said Denise. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A majority of these ladies have all stood behind me during that tough year. I lost my mom in July and they were there. Hunter got sick and they were there. My dad got sick and passed away and they are there. I go and do this and they are there. They had my back the whole time and this community is so amazing, especially if you consider we have only 5,000 people in Oliver and we have raised over $14,000.â&#x20AC;? Celebrities such as former Canucks players like Dave Babych, Richard Brodeur, Cliff Ronning and other Vancouver sports and media personalities will be drafted onto teams that have the highest fundraising totals as honorary coaches. Ginaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Rock made it on that list and Denise is hoping for one special Vancouver Canucks player. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would like Richard Brodeur. I grew up watching him,â&#x20AC;? she said. Those who wish to support the Ginaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Rock can do so through the Road Hockey to Conquer Cancer website at www.teamuptoconquercancer.ca and clicking on the Donate button and typing in the team name.

Owls silence Lakers Emanuel Sequeira Western News Staff

Emanuel Sequeira/Western News

PEN HIGH LAKERS Logan Mend, left, and Emery Lawrence do their best to keep that ball on the Kelowna Secondary School Owls side on Wednesday at Pen High. The Owls won the match in three sets.

Kelowna Secondary School Owls Àew in to Pen High on Wednesday evening and left with a pair of wins. It started with the girls battling at 5 p.m. Ranked fourth in the AAAA B.C. High School standings, the Owls defeated the ninth ranked Lakers 25-21, 25-21 and 2512. Lakers coach Robert Gunning watched his team have a good performance in which they dug for balls and didn’t give up. “Looking at the numbers they should beat us,” said Gunning. “We know we can play with them now. In the next month we have to

start proving it to ourselves and others.” Once his players start reeling off wins, the con¿dence will come. Gunning said that Kaylie Loewen played well on the right side and Hayden Craig is coming along as a setter. “We’re lacking a little bit of experience,” said Gunning. The evening ended with the boys squad losing 25-17, 25-18 and 25-19 to the sixth ranked Owls in AAA action. What hurt the Lakers, who received honourable mention (Oct. 8 to 15) in the provincial standings, were unforced errors. Coach Paul Smith said his players are struggling to sustain pres-

sure throughout the game. In the ¿rst set, they trailed 16-9 and clawed back, but it was too late. “When you’re playing good teams you can’t give them any points,” said Smith. “It’s not even hard unforced errors. All we have to do is pass the ball over the net and we put it into the middle of the tape.” Smith said he has his players cutting back on offence and placing focus on the basics. Until they get that down, Smith said there is no need to expand their offence. Not all is bad though. Smith liked the passing, especially from Blair Anderson, who he said, “had a dynamite game passing.”

Vees ready for Island trip Emanuel Sequeira Western News Staff

It’s going to be different when Wade Murphy steps onto the ice at Bear Mountain Arena. He used to be cheered every time he scored a goal or set one up. Now he returns as a member of the defending RBC Cup champion Penticton Vees. “I have been looking forward to this for awhile now,” said Murphy, who was dealt to the Vees on last season’s deadline. Murphy anticipates the crowd will probably be going against him, but he’s OK with that. He said it will motivate him. Not that he needs any extra incentive, especially when it comes to offensive production. His ¿ve goals is second on the team and he leads in points with 17, one point behind league leader Evan Tironese of Alberni Valley. Last weekend, Murphy scored two goals and added four assists in wins against the Vernon Vipers and Trail Smoke Eaters. While Murphy never asked for a trade from the Grizzlies (6-4-0-1), he still expects to hear some boos, but also hopes for a few cheers. In 100 games for his hometown team, Murphy scored 32 goals and added 50 assists. The matchup on Friday will also have Grizzles Mark McLellan and Zach Urban, who were involved in the Murphy trade, facing their old team. The Vees will also see former defenceman DJ Jones. Murphy said to have success on this road trip, that also takes them to Cowichan Valley (2-70-1) on Saturday and Nanaimo (4-3-0-1) Sunday afternoon, they will be using their speed and sticking to their game plan. Other keys will be rest and drinking plenty of water.

“I think we’re one of the fastest teams in the league,” said Murphy. “If we press their defence hard I think we will get some good chances offensively.” During the 7-2 win against Trail, Murphy was in on all three of Louie Nanne’s goals, helping the rookie get his ¿rst BCHL hat trick. “That was an unreal game,” said Murphy. “His dad was in the crowd as well. That was a pretty special moment for him and his family. Him and (Michael) Rebry have been playing unreal lately.” Vees coach-GM Fred Harbinson said the timing of the road trip is good. “It’s going to be nice to get on the road for the next ¿ve games,” said Harbinson, whose team is ranked No. 2 in the Canadian Junior

Hockey League. “It’s obviously going to be a tough test for us over the next ¿ve. Three games in two-and-ahalf days after a long trip to the Island, it’s never easy.” To make sure the trip is a success, the coaching staff will be counting on their depth as Harbinson said he has been able to spread the ice time around. Another thing going well for the Vees is their special teams. While the success rate of the power play (eight-for-48, 16.7 per cent) doesn’t look strong, Harbinson said it’s been really good in the last six games. During that span, the Vees have seven goals, including going threefor-nine in the last two games. They also scored a short-handed goal against Vernon.

Joe Fries/Western News

Penticton teams shine in soccer tournament Emanuel Sequeira Western News Staff

PENTICTON PEACH FESTIVAL SOCIETY

ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING 7 pm, Wednesday, October 24, 2012 Penticton Lakeside Resort & Conference Centre, Zinfandel Room Members of the public are invited to attend

Penticton teams were featured in three of the four ¿nals during the Old Timers soccer tournament held at Kings Park. The tournament attracted 20 teams, including clubs from Spokane, Bellingham, Calgary and Prince George, and went well according to organizer Dale Anderson, of the Penticton Soccer Club. In the men’s 35-plus, Penticton FC defeated Spokane Whitehouse Grill 4-3. “That was probably one of the best ¿nals I think I have seen in years,” said Anderson. In the women’s recreational side, FC Barcelona lost 2-1 to the Okanagan Lady Lakers made up of players from

Kelowna and Vernon. FC Barcelona was assembled for the weekend. In the men’s 50-plus, Prince George lost to the Calgary Southside Rangers 3-1. In the 45-plus men’s, Prince George edged Penticton 3-2. “Everybody said that they had the best time and they are going to be coming back next year,” said Anderson, who praised the efforts of vice-president Terry Peach, who he said did so much work. “We are looking at ways to try and grow the tournament from 20 teams to 32 to 48 teams is where we think we can handle it at. I think there’s an opportunity here to have a much bigger tournament.” Along with being happy with the action on the

¿eld, Anderson was also pleased with the efforts of the young of¿cials.

“They did a fantastic job,” he said. “SOYSA (South Okanagan Youth

Soccer Association) is doing a great job in bringing up referees.”

Excelsior academy players having success Emanuel Sequeira Western News Staff

Two busses loaded with Pinnacles FC Excelsior academy players travelled to Richmond with one goal in mind: They wanted to discover how they stacked up against teams from the Lower Mainland. An under-18 boy’s squad, coached by Ezra Cremers, won, while the under-18 girl’s squad took bronze. The under-15 girl’s team took silver, while the under-15 boys teams placed fourth among six teams. The under-11 boys team won half their games. “Overall, we are competitive against the coast,” said Cremers, head coach and executive director of the South Okanagan Youth Soccer Association. “We’re gaining quickly, that’s what’s enjoyable.” Coaches in the academy have trained the players to focus on keeping the ball on the ground and developing a strong passing game. “We don’t just kick the ball,” said Cremers, adding it’s a hard way of playing. “It’s a more technical way, which develops our players and is more enjoyable to watch. At a younger age they struggle. When they are U-18, it’s a more dominant way of playing.” When required, Cremers doesn’t have a problem with his players being physical, or playing as he calls it, “hockey soccer” as long as they don’t forget to score goals.

“We grew through the tournament,” he said, adding that the Excelsior squad won 4-0 in the ¿nal after building a 3-0 lead 20 minutes into the match. “We don’t run as much, we let the ball do the work. On defence we do low pressure. If we lose the ball in their end, we go hard for three seconds to try to win it back. If we don’t get it, we all drop back and wait for our opponent. We will wait on our half of the ¿eld in front of our net, and you come over here. The other team didn’t know what to do.” Cremers said it was awesome to watch. The Excelsior program, which Pinnacles FC is modelling on Excelsior Rotterdam from Holland, a professional club they visited, is designed to be a step up from district play for SOYSA. Manuel Borba, a coach with SOYSA, said Cremers chooses players for the program by assessing them during the summer. Over 100 kids were invited. Because of the size of Penticton, some ages are mixed. “The idea behind the program is to train players at the level they are at right now,” said Borba. “Before they had two levels — house and district. We have told the district players this is not a demotion. We will move kids up to Excelsior as they improve.” The idea is to train kids with other players of equal calibre. A year from now Borba sees 150 kids being part of Excelsior.
