▼ ROAD NAMING PROCESS

Long list of road names narrowed down to just three The soon to be former section of Highway 97 through Lake Country is close to having its own name. District of Lake Country council has narrowed the naming choices down from 160 unique names submitted to a shortlist of three names based on public feedback, historical naming by aboriginal inhabitants of the area, a corridor theme for future

parks, and taking into consideration potential naming conflicts with other jurisdictions. The three potential names for the section of road that will connect Winfield and Oyama once the new highway project is completed are: Lake Country Parkway, Pelmewash Parkway and Wood Lake Parkway. In a recent public input process the district sought feedback from

the community to help find the perfect name for the section of road that is currently Highway 97 between Winfield and Oyama. There is also a planning process coming up to determine the longterm use of this land under the jurisdiction of the district once the new section of highway is complete in 2013. The Request for Public input on the naming

of the highway was included with water utility notices sent out midSeptember. It was posted on the district’s web sites, on Facebook and was highlighted in local newspapers during September and October. There were 536 votes cast and 160 unique names proposed. Those were presented to council at a strategic planning session after municipal

staff did the preliminary vetting to consider possible conflicts with similar road names within the region. District council had stipulated that the final name chosen should be memorable and relevant for tourism and wayfinding. “We really appreciate the time and effort people made to give us SEE NAMING A3

A gem among jewels By Mr. R. Hett, Principal Wow. Here we are at November, already and if my calculating is correct there are only seven weeks left until winter break and my, can those weeks every pass by quickly in the busy and productive life of a thriving Traditional School! With the advent of November comes the colder mornings and chillier days in general, so please do check the weather each morning and ensure your child is fully prepared with gloves or mitts, a toque or warm hood, warm coat, etcetera. Occasionally the school is opened in the morning, but that is only if there are severe wind chills coming off the lake; normal Okanagan winter temperatures should be able to be endured if students are dressed properly. This November marks my fourth here at Oyama Traditional School, and I realize that the task of building this school into the best it can be is never one that is finished; rather, there is a continual desire to improve, and, as a “learning organization”, to keep learning and continually get better! In my newsletter article for last November I wrote of all of the improvements that I had seen at the school at that time. Well, since then even more improvements in the school can be seen, and I’d like to summarize them here. •The teachers are collaborating as teams, looking at the achievement data of all students so that intergrade learning groupings could be formed for daily instruction targeting specific learning needs over several weeks. This was done both by the Primary teachers (using data from the Early Learning Profile assessments that give phonological awareness and reading skills information),

as well as the Intermediate teachers using School Wide Write data. •This model is much more inclusive that the old model where a Learning Assistance Teacher would pull one or students out from the regular instruction of the class, and is continuing this year with both Mrs. Murdain, our Learning Assistance teacher, and Ms. Lehtonen, our Teacher Librarian, both working with students inside classes, co-teaching as it were, with the regular classroom teachers. •Our spelling program has been revamped to foster much deeper learning and retention by the students. In September, the teachers had a two hour workshop presented to them on a program called “Words Their Way” and now the students are learning spelling patterns of word families, and embedding these patterns of English orthography into their memory, rather than simply using rote memorization (which is soon forgotten after the test). •We have a digital sign now operating in the hallway that communicates information to students, staff and parents alike. It has our school crest prominently (and digitally) displayed on the left and will soon feature video, pictures, etcetera. •We have a new keyboard for our Oyama Traditional School Band, and have again purchased more instruments as we now have a whopping 49 grade six and seven students in our band program, under the very excellent teaching by Mrs. Atherton. This again gives our students who choose to take band in grade eight two full years’ of band practice before then.

•Student leadership is being enhanced this year with three adult teacher sponsors (the most yet) as well as the three key areas of student leadership (We Day student leadership, Student Council, and House Team Captains). Thank you very much to Mrs. Daniels for going to We Day and working with the nine We Day student leaders throughout the year, and also to Mrs. Lehtonen for joining me in working with the Student Council leaders. •An additional Smartboard has been installed in the portable. While this Smartboard was taken from lab, another one is being installed into the lab, so now every classroom as well as the lab has one of these excellent teaching tools. •Because of the collaborative model of supporting students that occurs when teachers sit down together to look at the assessment information, not only of their own students, but also of all students in either the Primary or Intermediate grades, we are seeing significant gains in overall student achievement. Last year, for example, 95 per cent of students exiting grade three were either meeting or exceeding expectations for reading fluency and comprehension according to the PM Benchmark assessment indicators. We have one of the highest levels of parent volunteerism and a stellar teaching staff here at OTS, both working together to give our students the best programs possible. There is truly a feeling that this semi-rural smaller school in the jewel of the Okanagan, Oyama, is a community school and one which espouses traditional family values that all families in the school support.

Artist donates work to district KEVIN PARNELL Two new pieces of public art have been unveiled in Lake Country as the district continues with a growing inventory of publicly-owned and displayed artwork. Two works by local sheet metal artist Graham Allport are now on display in Lake Country: The Protector, a sculpture of a hockey goalie; and Horse, a metal horse’s head. Both have been donated to Lake Country by Allport. “We’re really pleased to have these sculptures,” said Sharon McCoubrey, the chair of the Lake Country public art commission. “It’s great to add them to the Lake Country collection. Graham was generous enough to create these and donate them to the district. We’re a small municipality so it’s a challenge to find funds so it’s a real boost when someone as skilled as Graham does this and donates to the community.” Protector is located at the Recreation Centre. The sculpture represents a hockey goalie whose job it is to protect the goal. Made of naturally rusted steel, the idea of Protector is also symbolic of other ways and times when we might want to protect someone or someplace. Horse has recently been installed in Beasley Park. It was originally created by Allport and given to ArtWalk the year that the theme was country reflections. McCoubrey credits Allport for playing a major role in increasing and enhancing the Lake Country Public Art inventory. By adding public art it just adds to the interest in the community,” said McCoubrey. “It means when you are walking around or visitors are here it’s more interesting to see sculptures and art than nothing.

Dieno will retire as executive director of the Okanagan Regional Library at the end of the year. “I am ready,” said Dieno, who has held the position for 25 years and is looking forward to traveling. “I have known for the last year that I will retire.” Dieno has seen a number of changes during her tenure, including growth of the system to 29 branches and the introduction of Internetbased services. “I have enjoyed my time with ORL,” she said. “It kept me here longer than any other job that I’ve had because it’s always changing.” Dieno is receiving praise from the agency’s vice-chairman. “Her years with ORL have seen great progress in seeing her and her staff move forward to better serve the public,” said Jim Edgson. “The direction, advice,

ity. We’ve narrowed it down to three names.” “We took a look at the road names that individuals and community groups had already suggested over the past few years,” said Coun. Lisa Cameron, “and we

listened to the Parks and Recreation Advisory Committee recommendation to council that the ending be ‘Parkway’ for whatever name is chosen.” “As well, we were all in agreement that the name

submission of ‘Pelmewash’ was very relevant in light of the recent archeological findings and because it was the aboriginal name for Wood Lake prior to the arrival of Thomas Wood’s family in the commun-

not surprising. In addition, there were 16 submissions of similar names prefaced by Lake Country. Likewise, with significant support for everything from Wood Lake Promenade and Wood

Lake Scenic Drive to Wood Lakeside Trail, the public emphasis on that name could not be ignored and it made the final three. Council will be making the final decision on the road name Nov. 20.

under-statement. But it’s also starting to run faster than ever as the number of people needing help increases each month. Volunteer manager Phyllis MacPherson, a staff of dedicated volunteers and a community that keeps on giving has helped the food bank keep up with the extra demand and keep supporting local families and individuals who need help putting food on their tables. “We have seen an increase (in demand),� said MacPherson. “There are no jobs out there so how does anybody expect to survive?� One way families are getting by is with the help of the Lake Country Food Bank, which provides food for about 600 people a month.

MacPherson keeps tabs on families and individuals who are eligible for help from the food bank once a month. They get food, including meat, and some information on how to stretch their allotment for a month. “We give them recipes along with their food,� said MacPherson. “If you don’t know how to cook, then you learn.� At 75 years of age, MacPherson has been running the food bank for the past 30 years, developing a system that sees her shelves full throughout the year, thanks to donations of food and money from places like the local fire departments, the schools and different businesses that raise money and donations. She says it’s a true community effort that has kept the food bank in the business of helping those in need all of these years. “It is just awesome. My community is the best there is,� she said.

LAKE COUNTRY Food Bank’s Phyllis MacPherson always keeps the shelves well-stocked but it’s coming up on the busiest time for food banks, which are seeing more pressure across the country. “It’s the best place to live. This community has always been good to us. We have plenty of volunteers. It’s gotten so all the fire departments do big campaigns for us. We’re a small little place here but we get a lot of support.� The increase in demand in Lake Country is echoing the same thing that is happening at food banks across the country as more and more people

are finding themselves in need of help. According to a study by the national organization Food Banks Canada, the need for food assistance programs grew by 2.4 per cent this year and is 31 per cent more than pre-recessionary levels. The study took into account one month of usage, in March of 2012, and found that in B.C. 96,150 people received food from a food bank,

an increase of almost six per cent from 2011. Almost one-third of food bank users in B.C. are children, according to the study. In Lake Country, those in need are supported by the non-profit food bank run by MacPherson and her staff of vo- w lunteers. She vows that the shelves will never go empty due to the support from the community and said if donations stopped now she could keep the food bank going for six months. “There are no wages being paid here so all the money that does come in goes to buying food,� she said. “My freezers are full and my shelves are wellstocked. I know how much money I have and how much I can spend. I know when the people are coming and if I get overloaded I give them another time to come.� Donations are always accepted at the food bank, which is located at 3130 Berry Rd. or by calling 250-766-0125.

â–ź SMOKE IN THE VALLEY

Non-salvageable wood is being burned to allow for replanting in 2013

Residents of the Central Okanagan and surrounding communities may see smoke from a series of controlled fires over the next month. A contractor is working for the Okanagan Shuswap District to collect and burn waste wood and other forest fuels in the Gillard

Creek area. In 2007, numerous pine trees in a 2,000-hectare area 10 kilometres south of Kelowna were blown down during a windstorm. All of the marketable timber in that area was subsequently removed and no salvageable wood is left. The remaining waste

wood represents a natural fire hazard and is also impeding reforestation efforts. The area is scheduled to be replanted in spring 2013. The waste wood is being collected into piles up to four metres high and will be burned periodically throughout November.

To minimize the impact of smoke on nearby residents and communities, the fires will only be lit during favourable venting conditions when the smoke will disperse quickly. Smoke from the fires will likely be visible in Lake Country, Kelowna and West Kelowna. Public safety is a top

Environmental Society Legacy Fund established

The Lake Country Environmental Society is dissolving, but its legacy continues. In an Oct. 23 memorandum of understanding, the Lake Country Environmental Society agreed to transfer its remaining cash on hand to the District of Lake Country to be held in trust and used for environmental projects that protect, remediate or enhance the local environment within Lake Country. “The primary concern is to protect and enhance the environment,� states the agreement. Additionally, the district agreed to explore the possibility of enhancing the legacy fund to include donations from the general public, estates, or other potential donors to help augment the program and keep it sustainable. Income tax receipts are available from the district in such situations. When the Lake Country Environmental Society was formed in 1989 its focus was predominantly recycling. With active community members like Jane Pekrul leading the initiative and many other volunteers assisting, the society was a driving force in recycling efforts and helped to facilitate the region-

Founding society member Ed Cully wrote a regular Enviro File column in The Calendar for a number of years; and the society has been actively involved with local schools in establishing environmental clubs and projects like tree planting, clean-up days and storm drain marking. Other efforts include: • Acting as a conduit for the Royal Bank Blue Water Grant which resulted in collaborating with Okanagan Basin Water Board on developing a Watershed Report Card Template • Assisting Oceola Fish & Game Club in frequent clean-ups of Middle Vernon Creek • Helping with dissemination of messaging for Okanagan Collaborative Conservation Program • Providing advice on environmental issues related to development proposals • Sitting on Regional District of Central Okanagan’s Committee on Solid Waste Site Planning • Addressing a wide range of ecological and environmental concerns through local print media. “The society has been a positive

Anti-smart meter hysteria ramps up in Gulf Islands

T

wo very different scenes unfolded at opposite ends of the province last week. In the remote northwest corner of B.C., the first power line towers started going up to connect Highway 37 communities to the BC Hydro grid. The Nisga’a, Tahltan and other aboriginal communities will soon have reliable power, as well as muchneeded training and jobs during clearing and construction. Meanwhile, down on the Gulf Islands, the most hysterical, dishonest campaign against smart meters I’ve heard of so far went into high gear. I’ve obtained a mass email from the head antismart meter organizer on Salt Spring Island that shows the mentality at work here. (Corix is the BC Hydro contractor that has installed more than a million meters and has approached the Gulf Islands with

BC Views

Tom Fletcher trepidation, the last area of B.C. to be done.) “Corix is attacking with 30 trucks on Mon the 22nd,” Chris Anderson wrote in October. “Poelpe [sic] are advised NOT to attend the Victoria pipeline rally but instead help defend agianst [sic] spymeter installations in their neighbourhoods.” Anderson’s self-appointed supporters fanned out across the island, attempting to turn away installers on the false assumption that everyone has fallen for their crackpot fear campaign. They managed to

stop 12 per cent of the installations. Coincidentally, Anderson has been doing a brisk business selling $35 meter locks to gullible Salt Spring Islanders in recent months. They don’t work, and you’re not allowed to lock BC Hydro property anyway. Others have been sold official-looking “no smart meter” signs that don’t identify the customer, so they don’t work either. As for the term “spymeter,” I’ve reported on the weird theories spread by Bill Vander Zalm in a video interview, where he claims smart meters are part of a global surveillance system that can even tell what you’re cooking. Vander Zalm has been outdone by one Brian Thiesen, who styles himself as the “chairman” of “Interior Smart Meter Awareness.” In September, the Merritt Herald reported on Theisen’s presentation to 20 unwary

people in a church basement. He claimed wireless meters not only provide video surveillance of your house, they are also responsible for “dying bees” and “defective sperm and eggs” as well as disease and fires. Thiesen even claimed radio frequency signals can “pull your PIN number directly out of your head.” Is there no limit to the nonsense some people will fall for? Surrey fire chief Len Garis co-authored a study that shows residential fires have decreased with the advent of smart meters. Which brings me to the ugliest opposition to this modernization—the criminal element. Here, in North America’s marijuana mecca, installers have encountered many meter bypasses, wired up to steal hydro and conceal high consumption for grow ops. In addition to being illegal, they are a fire hazard that is removed when discovered.

Installers also find more sophisticated cases of hydro theft. Removing the mechanical meter reveals a hole cut in the back of the case, so the dials can be turned back to hide a grow op’s power consumption. No wonder some people want to lock them down. Of course all of this is defeated by a smart grid system, so the growers and other crooks are angry. A BC Hydro official told me about one case where a user was told he had a bypass, and that it was being removed. His bill went from next to nothing to a reasonable level. The customer complained to the media, falsely inflating the amount of his bill and blaming an inaccurate smart meter.

Province wisely investing like those successful television dragons

E

ver watch the TV show Dragon’s Den? If you haven’t, the premise is simple: Entrepreneurs pitch their ideas and products to a panel of proven investors (the dragons), whose interest, or lack thereof, can make or break the entrepreneurs’ dreams. Most investors have simple criteria: Is there a market for this product or idea? Perhaps more importantly, will there be one in the future? It’s one thing to identify a demand that exists now. But the most successful investors try to envision where the market is going. In some ways, investing in B.C.’s economy is the same. We have to train and prepare

Norm Letnick British Columbians for the jobs of tomorrow. It’s important to not get carried away by the analogy, as it only goes so far. A responsible government invests in the future because it’s the right thing to do. But for dragons and governments alike, the key to long-term success is to make investments for the future, more so than the

present. This brings me to a subject near and dear to my heart: Our government’s recent $28-million investment in Okanagan College’s Kelowna campus to expand and renovate trades training facilities. Once completed, the new Trades Complex will be able to accommodate up to 2,408 students and apprentices, up from the current capacity of about 2,280. I take great interest in the college, not just because I’m a business instructor there (on leave). Like good dragons, we made this investment with an eye to the future. That future will include vastly more jobs in the trades—and if British Columbians are to

have opportunities to capitalize on those careers, they’ll need training. We’re not talking about a minor or temporary jump in trades jobs, but a massive shift: Of the one million job openings ahead, fully 43 per cent will need trades and technical training. The expansion at Okanagan College has been a key part of that investment. In addition to that, our government has made over $63 million in capital investments at Okanagan College since 2005. That includes the Jim Pattison Centre of Excellence in Sustainable Building Technologies and Renewable Energy Conservation at the Penticton campus, and renova-

Pay attention to the words in the songs TAYLOR FROM A6 ly pays attention to the words she’s expected to sing. Most people don’t, I find. They sing lustily about waging war against Satan’s powers, about looking forward to blissful life in eternity, about sacrificing children as a sign of love. But all they hear is familiar and therefore comforting memories. Someone wise said once that if you want to know what people believe, don’t listen to what they say; listen to what they sing. Sermons, you see, en-

ter our minds through the front door. We let those words in, like visitors. We entertain them for a while; then we can send them away again. Or perhaps we keep that door shut, as we might with a pesky door-todoor sales rep. But music slips in through the back door. We don’t even realize it’s wandering around inside our minds until it has already made itself at home. Ideas that come in through the back door are much harder to evict, especially when they’re accompanied—as they often are—by a catchy melody. The music turns

into an earworm—you find yourself singing along while you do the laundry, mow the lawn, drive down the highway. And each time, the unnoticed message burrows more deeply into your sub-conscious. Unless, like my friend, you become aware of what you’re endorsing when you sing those words. There are some hymns that I no longer enjoy singing. They offend me. I can sing them as historical artifacts. But I feel as uncomfortable belting them out as I would signing a petition supporting child por-

nography. I won’t try naming those hymns, because they may belong only to my own religious tradition. Or some of those hymns might be among your favourites. If so, it’s not up to me to set you straight. Better that you discover for yourself what you’re singing. Neither my friend nor I suggest that the “grand old hymns� should be trashed. But we should all pay attention to what we’re singing about. Jim Taylor is an Okanagan Centre author. rewrite@shaw.ca

tion and expansion of the trades facility at the Salmon Arm campus. Those investments are part of our Skills and Training Plan, a provincewide commitment to industry training. That includes some $100 million per year through the Industry Training Authority—and while it’s still early days, the evidence suggests the plan is working. The number of apprentices in B.C. has more than doubled, from about 14,000 in 2004 to approximately 32,000 in 2012. Those 32,000 apprentices—enough to fill Prospera Place four and a half times over— will be well-positioned for the jobs and careers coming to B.C.

Smart dragons don’t stop at one investment, and neither will we. In the weeks and months to come, you’ll hear about many more investments in B.C.’s future. Not because it’s good TV, but because we want to cre-

ate an environment where tomorrow’s young dragons have every chance to succeed. Norm Letnick is the Liberal MLA for Kelowna-Lake Country and B.C.’s agriculture minister.

Women’s only fundraiser keeps program going Ex Nihilo Vineyards raised $9,600 at its third annual Titz-Elation, a women’s only cancer fundraising costume party held on Oct. 20. This unique, fun event is unlike any other to bring women together in a festive atmosphere to support people living with cancer in the Okanagan Valley.

When the community was about to lose a very special program called Managing Life with Cancer, due to lack of funding, Ex Nihilo proprietor Decoa Harder got busy. “After speaking with individuals who had taken the program, we felt committed to do what we could to keep it available in our commu-

There are moms in the community who suddenly experience additional financial strain, such as childcare, loss of work and travel expenses as they pursue treatments for some very aggressive cancers. “Our goal is to take a little bit of financial stress away,” Harder said, “so that they can focus on healing and get back to being ‘mom’. We feel every little bit helps.” “I had a very special aunt who passed away at the age of 48 from cancer,” said Harder, “that had originated as breast cancer.

“from the bottom of our hearts,” all the ladies who attended the event and who offered their support. Managing Life With Cancer: Skills to Live By is a course offered to cancer patients and their support persons. Cancer patients and their families are faced with the task of finding a ‘new normal’ in the face of an illness that can leave them feeling isolated, hopeless and powerless. This program offers practical information, support and a chance to network with others who are also living with the challenges of cancer. After participating in the program, participants and their families often report an increased

sense of hopefulness and self-assuredness, accompanied by a decrease in feelings of isolation and anxiety. The course consists of six or seven sessions. Participants explore a variety of topics related to cancer care and coping such as understanding the mind-body connection; stress-reduction techniques; managing energy; identifying personal strengths and health-enhancing goals and effective ways to communicate about cancer with family, friends and the medical community. Sessions are facilitated by two counselors, with the assistance of two volunteers skilled in working with patients and their families.

REMEMBER THEM

A long history of service and sacriďŹ ce in Lake Country By Kevin Parnell, staff reporter When folks in Lake Country get together this year for Remembrance Day services at the cenotaph, the gathering will be short at least one area veteran. Earlier this year Okanagan Indian Band member Charlie Raymond Simpson passed away at the age of 78, leaving behind a family legacy of service and dedication to Canada. There are no less than ďŹ ve Simpson’s listed on the ceno-

taph in WinďŹ eld and many more relatives of the Simpson clan that fought for Canada. And while Charlie Simpson didn’t end up getting called to war, he was ready and prepared to serve after leaving his home for Vernon where him and his brother Herbert were trained by the militia and were ready to serve when the second world war ended. “That was him,â€? explained his wife Martha Simpson. “He wanted to go serve his country, just like everybody else. All the guys wanted to go in and help the country. A

lot of them went and and not even a week or two later they were killed in action. We honour them no matter what happened.â€? After being trained for war in Vernon, Charlie Simpson and his brother Herbert were lucky enough to return to WinďŹ eld when the war ended. Two of his older brothers were called to war and only one would return as his brother Clarence was killed in action while Ernest served through both world wars and returned home. Seeing his brother Clarence leaving WinďŹ eld for the last time is something that stuck with Charlie. “The one thing Charlie talked about the most was when his older brother Clarence was going to the war,â€? recalled Martha. “He said he

remembers his brother waving at him when he was leaving on the train. He used to say that he didn’t think that he was waving for the last time.� After just a two week tour of duty, Clarence was killed in duty. Several other Simpson men would return from various tours of duty and would suffer the lasting effects of participating in a war. Martha recalls a lot of the men were changed for the worse and suffered without treatment. “Two of Charlie’s brother-in-laws that came back from the war... it was not a happy thing,� she said. “They were shell shocked and they weren’t treated at all. They should have received treatment. The honour that I have for these men that fought for our country and some of them

MEMORIALS TO THOSE WHO SERVED can be found at the Oyama Legion, including a tribute to Percival Simpson, one of many Simpson family members who served. Charlie Raymond Simpson would take part in the Remembrance, laying a wreath at the cenotaph to recall the

First Nations who fought, many of them giving up their status to join the war. This year Martha Simpson will be back at the cenotaph, but for the ďŹ rst time she will be without Charlie Raymond Simpson, a brave and hard-working logger, sawmill worker and hunter. He won’t be there to lay a wreath for his family members and for others who fought in the war. But Martha will be and she will have a lot on her mind. “I’ll be thinking about the people that died in the war,â€? she said. “It doesn’t matter if they are native or white because they all served their country for us. They didn’t come home to their moms. I just think of everybody as equals. They were brave enough to go ďŹ ght for us so we have to honour them.â€?

REMEMBER THEM Centre for Spiritual Living launches speaker series with talk on peace As Canada prepares for its annual recognition of Remembrance Day, the Centre for Spiritual Living launches its new Gratitude CafÊ Speaker Series at the Rotary Centre for the Arts with a look at the holiday’s underlying message of peace. Rev. Karin Wilson will examine how we can use our minds to create a more powerful experience of peace in our homes, our businesses, our community, and

through that, the world. “Peace is something that can be achieved, and is being achieved, in our world daily – even when we are tempted to only see war and destruction,â€? said Wilson, host of the Gratitude CafĂŠ. “It is the human condition to separate ourselves from each other, and in so doing we forget all that we have in common.â€? Practicing Peace: A Dialogue on peace today, takes

place Nov. 7 at 7 p.m. Rev. Karin Wilson has been addressing audiences in the Kelowna area for more than ďŹ ve years. She’s a staff minister at the Centre for Spiritual Living, and is one of the founders of the wellregarded Okanagan Institute and the original host of its popular Express Series. She’s also been a local journalist whose work has appeared on CBC Radio and in many regional and prov-

incial publications. Her column Under Current, which explored the spiritual side of current affairs, appeared for many years in the Capital News. Wilson said the new speaker series, which will continue the ďŹ rst Wednesday of each month at the Rotary Centre for the Arts through to May, will provide an opportunity to look at current affairs through a spiritual lens.

In Flanders Fields by John McCrae, May 1915 In Flanders ďŹ elds the poppies blow Between the crosses, row on row, That mark our place; and in the sky The larks, still bravely singing, y Scarce heard amid the guns below.

“So many people make a decision at some point in their lives to disengage from the world of affairs because it feels like an assault, and they feel helpless to affect any change,� she said. “My feeling is that by looking at current affairs from a positive spiritual perspective, we not only retain our humanity, but provide a pathway for conversations that might not otherwise take place.� The Centre for Spirit-

ual Living provides spiritual tools to transform our personal lives and help make the world a better place. Today there are more than 450 Centres for Spiritual Living operating worldwide, led by local Spiritual Director Dr. Kenn Gordon. For more information about the Centre for Spiritual Living and the upcoming series, call 250-8603500, or visit the centre’s website at kelowna.csl.org.

REMEMBER THEM Q Oyama Traditional School

Students share what Remembrance Day means to them

By Darla, grade 4 To me, Remembrance Day is a day that we come together and think about soldiers and their families. And to show them respect, we wear poppies on our shirts or sweaters. A red poppy is worn because it symbolizes the blood that was shed. Remembrance Day is a sad day for some families because maybe their son or father died in war. It is hard for me to watch videos of them because lots of people died in the wars. It is a hard thing to see but it is a good thing to observe. I am very lucky for all of the things I have, because

some people do not even have toys or shoes. By Lorne, grade 4 My grandpa was in the air force and he is still alive. My grandpa is turning 81 on January 1st. Every Remembrance Day, my dad, my brothers Nikolai and Matthew, and I go to West Bank and we watch my grandpa in uniform holding the Canadian Flag. Everyone that fought in the wars was very brave. In time, a lot of people died in the war. When my grandpa was in the air force a lot of people went down in planes. We remember the soldiers

when we wear poppies. In time, people who survived the war came back home and we thank them for their sacriďŹ ce.

When I think of the soldiers I turn sad. That’s what Remembrance Day is to me. What is it to you?

By Kael, grade 5 To me, Remembrance Day is the day when we recognize the soldiers’ duty. My great grandpa was in World War I and he fought for his country. On Remembrance Day we wear poppies. We don’t celebrate Remembrance Day, we remember the war. I do remember it because two of my great grandpas were in World War I. The red poppy is worn because it symbolizes the colour of blood.

By Carissa, grade 4 When I think of Remembrance Day, I think of World War I and II. My great grandpa was in both wars. I think of poppies like in the poem, “In Flanders Fields.� After all, I’m lucky to live in Canada and not somewhere where there is still a war going on. I nearly cry when I see pictures of the people in war. It’s especially important to remember that people died so we could be free.

ave you heard of the thoracic spine? If not, I’m sure you have felt it before because it’s a very common cause of pain and discomfort that we treat in the physiotherapy clinic. If you are experiencing pain in your mid or upper back, it is possibly stemming from the thoracic spine. In fact, the thoracic spine can even sometimes be responsible for shoulder, chest, lower back and pelvic pain. The thoracic spine is comprised of the twelve vertebrae that all of your twelve ribs attach to,

Keeping You Fit forming what could be thought of as a cage that houses and protects your lungs and heart. Due to this regions protective role, it makes sense that these vertebrae sit tightly together and provide far less movement than the vertebrae in your neck and lower back. The thoracic spine also acts as an attachment point for a large number of muscles that control the shoulder blades. Therefore, anything you do with your arms is being anchored by your thoracic spine. It could be said that such a complex part of our body cannot be without its problems. In the clinic, the most common complaint I get relating to dysfunction

in the thoracic spine is “a nagging pain between the shoulder blades that I just can’t seem to stretch out.” The subsequent examination often reveals dysfunction in one or more of the joints between the vertebrae or rib attachments to the vertebrae. This dysfunction is generally accompanied by tight and tender muscles. Another common situation is the complaint of shoulder or lower back pain that just doesn’t fit the usual story. In this situation, patients are often surprised to find tenderness and dysfunction on examination of the thoracic spine that can also reproduce their shoulder or lower back pain. If you are experiencing pain that you think may fit the above descriptions then the first thing you need to think about is your posture. Whether you sit for prolonged periods of time at a desk, in front of a computer or in a vehicle? Or, if you have a job requiring repetitive lifting or reaching, it is crucial that your spine is in a stable, neutral pos-

ture. v Excessive forward bending at the lower and mid back, a forward head posture or shoulders that are rounded forward all put increased strain on the thoracic spine. Being aware of your y posture and taking frequent short breaks from your work can do wonders in preventing the onset of your pain. A nice stretch for your thoracic spine is lying back over a tightly rolled up towel at about the level of your shoulder blades. Stretch your hands up above your head and arch your back over the towel to feel a nice stretch w at your mid back. This should not be painful If it is, then make the rolled towel smaller or do the same stretch without the towel. Obviously, chest and shoulder pain needs to w be considered very carefully as a heart attack can present with similar symptoms. If you experience a sudden onset of pain in these areas that isn’t relieved by rest and has no known cause, it could indicate a medical emergency.

Same issue to be tested in B.C. HERGOTT FROM 16

crash when an oncoming van forced him off the road. The defending insurance company denied liability, blaming LeBlanc for being the author of his own misfortune. LeBlanc hired a lawyer. His lawyer required Mr. LeBlanc to come up with the money to pay for disbursements, the dollars that would be spent taking the case to trial. Those disbursements ended up costing over $26,000.00. There was a standard contingency fee arrangement, with the lawyer’s fees to be paid as a percentage of the compensation LeBlanc ended up with, if any. I say “if any� because no compensation would be payable if LeBlanc was found to be at fault. The lawyer was willing to risk his fees on the outcome of the case, but was not prepared to risk putting his own money out to pay for the disbursements. In the words of the New Brunswick Court of Appeal: “Only ta foolhardy lawyer would have agreed to undertake that risk�. LeBlanc was forced to find financing. He went to two banks, asking for a line of credit. Both banks refused him credit. No surprise there: why would a bank give a line of credit to a 17 year old, disabled from working, on the basis of an uncer-

tain legal claim? There was one company willing to lend money to LeBlanc: Seahold Investments. Seahold Investments is what I refer to as a “litigation lender�. They take the risk of lending money to fund litigation. They are paid handsomely for taking that risk. The interest rate referred to by the New Brunswick Court of Appeal was 2.4 per cent per month, compounded monthly. By my calculation, the equivalent annual rate is almost 33%. I expect there were setup charges on top of that interest rate as well. The interest expense LeBlanc ended up incurring to finance the disbursements was over $14,000.00, approximately 54 per cent of the cost of the disbursements themselves. LeBlanc was successful. He was completely exonerated of fault, and able to move forward to pursue fair compensation for his injuries and other losses. He was awarded costs against the defending insurance company. The issue that the New Brunswick Court of Appeal faced was whether or not LeBlanc could recover reimbursement of the over $14,000.00 of interest as part of his “costs�. The Court of Appeal considered whether or not the high inter-

est loans were necessary, and found: “Without financial assistance from a third party, Mr. LeBlanc would not have been able to enforce his rights in the courts. The loans granted by Seahold Investments were therefore essential to allow Mr. LeBlanc access to justice‌â€? Addressing the necessity square on: “The loans taken out by Mr. LeBlanc were necessary to prevent a most unjust outcome for his legal dispute with the respondents: the settlement of his claim for a pittance or perhaps even its abandonment.â€? As you might have already anticipated, the defending insurance company was ordered to pay the interest. The law in B.C., at present, does not allow for recovery of the cost of disbursement financing as costs. That issue is poised to go to the B.C. Court of Appeal for consideration.

Science technology career opportunities booming in British Columbia “British Columbia has a ready source of great jobs and careers in technology. Our education programs need to keep up with that demand.” That is the enthusiastic opinion of John Leech, executive director of the Applied Science Technologists and Technicians of BC. “Every system we rely on—water, roads and transportation, telecommunications and Internet, hydro and natural gas, environment, health, forestry, and many more —utilizes engineering and applied science technology professionals working in the background. B.C.’s telecom and IT, animation and many other sectors produce new careers every month.” ASTTBC has more than 10,000 members currently working in thousands of careers available to graduates of two-year diploma programs available at the British Columbia Institute of Technology and other B.C. colleges and institutes including Okanagan College.

John Leech “Our members enjoy rewarding, well-paid and often recession-proof careers in public service and the private sector alike,” Leech stated. “For huge numbers of young men and women, technology is the answer. “In B.C. and across Canada, technology permeates every workplace and job. We need to get capable students involved and engaged in applied sciences and head off workforce shortages by building a B.C. ‘Science and Technology Culture.’” Leech calls on government for renewed efforts to build student skills and confidence in math and science programming. “We especial-

ly need to interest young students in science and how things work. “Young students use technology every day— smart phones, iPads and computers. They play video games, even build robots.” Leech lauds the recent “Year of Science” program that encouraged students toward socalled “STEM” subjects —science, technology, engineering and math. Citing the recent $6

million B.C. campaign to encourage careers in trades, Leech urges a similar effort to build awareness of engineering technology education and careers. B.C. Technology Industries Association employers like Telus and BC Hydro and many smaller technology-rich companies say the single most important position they now struggle to fill is specialty technician/ technologist.

TWO RECENT ASTTBC technology award recipients Heather (left photo) is a supervisor for transportation engineering with the City of Prince George while Paul works in the FortisBC elecricity calibration lab in Penticton. Even the Canadian Council of Chief Executives expressed concern that only 37 per cent of 16- to 18-year-olds were interested in taking even one post-secondary course in sciences, according to a recent Angus Reid survey. Leech says the opportunities for those seek-

ing work in the technology field are considerable given a wave of retirements of present-generation B.C. technology professionals that is already underway. “Half of our membership is now middleaged at 45-plus, and 22 per cent are over age 55,” Leech explained.

It would appear their investment is a smart move, as it will result in a broad range of career opportunities. Industries in all regions of B.C. support programs for local trainees to fill engineering and applied science technologist, technician and technical specialist positions.

Making yourself a ‘lasagne’ garden

L

asagne gardening is a relatively cheap and easy way to make a new raised bed of good soil. The process consists of layering the same materials you might use in a compost, in the place where you want to create the new bed. It’s also an easy way to get rid of some lawn. Although most often made to create a vegetable bed, the lasagne garden can be used to grow almost anything. First, choose your spot. If you plan to grow vegetables or plants requiring sun, make sure there will be at least six hours, daily, of full sun during in the growing season. It is best to stay away from trees. In my experience, most have wide reaching root systems that always make a beeline for good soil and extra moisture. Also avoid

GARDENING WITH NATURE

Gwen Steele making the garden on top of morning glory weed as it, too, will thrive in the good soil. To make it on top of lawn, first cut the grass as short as possible. Then soak the ground and cover it with an overlapping layer of wet cardboard. Appliance boxes work well. The cardboard helps smother the lawn and draws earthworms. They like cellulose and help break up the turf while eating the cardboard. Fall is a good time to make the bed as there are lots of materials around. Begin with a layer of chunky material such

as frost killed vegetation from your gardens or used animal bedding (straw and manure mixture). Then add layers of green/wet/nitrogen materials such as compost, manure, grass clippings, kitchen waste and soil, alternated with brown/ dry/carbon materials such as shredded leaves, straw and frost killed plants. Make sure each layer is very wet before you put the next layer on. The ‘green’ layers can be two to four inches thick and the ‘brown’ layers, double that. To further enhance nutrients in the bed, supplements such as bone meal, wood ashes, and worm castings can be sprinkled over upper layers. Keep repeating alternating layers until the bed is about two feet high.

Leave it to rot down over winter. To speed the process, you can cover the bed with black plastic and weight down the edges. In spring the bed will be about half the height. You can plant through holes in the plastic for such things as squash or remove the plastic and put a wooden or other framework around the bed to contain it before planting. A lasagne garden can be made at any time of year and planted immediately. More detail can be found in books on lasagne gardening by Patricia Lanza. Three are available at the library. Last week, I wrote a review of Restoring Ecological Health to your Land and the partnering workbook but forgot to say they are available by special order through Mosaic Books. www.okanaganxeriscape.org

Buddhadeb Dasgupta, whom many critics consider to be India’s foremost filmmaker, will speak at a free public presentation Nov. 6 at UBCO about his work. Using clips of selected films on the topic How I Grow My Image, Dasgupta will paticipate in a discussion with the audience.

An economics professor by training, Dasgupta’s reputation rests as much on the lyrical poetry of his films as on the socially relevant themes. His films exploit the realms of reality and sail beyond the assumed horizon. He is regarded as one of the master filmmakers in the world cinema.

His documentaries have also been celebrated. The presentation starts at 4 p.m. Nov. 6 in room EME 1203, in the engineering, management and education building on the UBC Okanagan campus. The event is sponsored by the departments of sociology and history.

EISLER, HELEN MARY (nee: Harrigan) December 18, 1919 ~ October 30, 2012. It is with deep sadness that we announce the death of our lovely mother, a caring grandparent and a steadfast friend. Helen had been a long-time resident of Oyama, B.C., since 1945.

Final Public Input Opportunity – naming “Old Hwy 97”

REMEMBERING…

The “Old Hwy 97” section of road is close to having its own name. District of Lake Country Council has narrowed the naming choices down from 160 unique names submitted, to a shortlist of three based on public feedback, historical naming by Aboriginal inhabitants of the area, a corridor theme for future parks, and consideration of potential naming conflict with other jurisdictions. “We really appreciate the time and effort people made to give us their input,” said Mayor James Baker in a November 1st News Release. “We’ve narrowed it down to three names, and now we want to extend our deadline for a decision to give the community one more chance to voice an opinion.” Council will be making the final decision on the road name November 20, 2012. Visit www.lakecountry.bc.ca to read the News Release explaining the rationale for the shortlisted names, and get your vote in the on-line public opinion poll before the November 14th 4:30pm deadline. Shortlisted road names (in alphabetical order) are:

THE COURAGE AND SACRIFICE OF OUR VETERANS

The District of Lake Country’s sports fields are now closed for the season to begin winter maintenance. Over the winter, District crews inspect sports fields to determine what repairs are required and perform annual general maintenance. Field closures are necessary and help maintain the quality of turf for the best possible playing conditions once spring arrives. District staff appreciates the public's support by staying off all District fields until they are opened in the spring of 2013.
