hen Highway 97 between Oyama and Winfield is replaced by a new highway next summer, the stretch of road that winds along Wood Lake will switch from a provincial highway to a roadway controlled by the District of Lake Country. In an effort to honour the First Nations that first lived

in the Okanagan, Lake Country council has decided to name the seven-kilometre road Pelmewash Parkway, which appears to be the original name for Wood Lake. The name has historical significance to the Okanagan Indians that first inhabited the area and dates back to before European settlers arrived in the area. It’s so old, in fact, that even members of the Okanagan Indian Band have never heard it. See story A3

CLOSE-UP

Parkway name strikes a positive chord Kevin Parnell STAFF REPORTER

I

n a nod toward the First Nations that originally inhabited the Okanagan Valley, Lake Country council has decided on a new name for the road that runs between Oyama and Winfield. The roadway will be handed over to Lake Country control sometime next year, when the new Highway 97 route opens, crossing the mountain range above Wood Lake and eliminating the twisting and turning highway in its current form. And while any decisions on the future use of the road are still likely at least a year away, the name for the seven kilometre stretch of road was set this week. In a nearly-unanimous decision, Lake Country council chose Pelmewash Parkway as the name for Old Highway 97. And while the name may seem like a tongue twister, it’s history is long and rich and if Lake Country council has its way, Pelmewash Parkway will soon be rolling off local lips as easily as other First Nations’ names like Spallumcheen, Osoyoos, Okanagan and even Kelowna. ••• According to the 1958 book Early Days of Winfield, B.C., author W.R. Powley claims Wood Lake takes its current name from settler Thomas Wood who, in 1871, held land around what was then-known as Pelmewash Lake.

DOUG FARROW/CONTRIBUTOR

BYRON LOUIS, chief of the Okanagan Indian Band, looks over work being done on the Winfield-Oyama bypass of Highway 97 where First Nations artifacts were discovered last month. Powley arrived in Oyama in 1907 with her family and lived there until her death in 1966. Hired by the Winfield Centennial Committee to write the history of Winfield, Powley wrote that the settler Wood increased his land holdings around the lake until 1903, acquiring an extensive rangeland on the lake’s east side that would become known as Wood’s Range. By 1903, Wood had subdivided his land and put it up for sale. The map that accompanied the sale referred to the lake next to the settler’s land

as Wood’s Lake. It was the beginning of the end for the name Pelmewash, which, over the next 100 years, would not be heard of again in Lake Country. That is until this week, when Lake Country council decided to dust off the name and bring it back, in the form of Pelmewash Parkway, the new name for the old Highway 97. “I think this is a good lesson that shows our history didn’t start when European settlers came to the area,” said Lake Country Coun. Jamie McEwan. “I’ve had people say that the pronunciation

t a k c a It’s B

K

may be difficult and I’ve said to them, ‘What do you think the first person who heard Okanagan or Kelowna thought?’ “A lot of these names around here may have been viewed as difficult to pronounce. I think this is an opportunity to show some leadership and some recognition to the history and to a different history of our area.” ••• The First Nations who first inhabited the Okanagan speak an Interior version of Salish, a native dialect with some 23 different versions, depending on the location,

from the B.C. coast, to the Thompson, up to Williams Lake and down into Washington State. In the Okanagan, the language is known as Nsylixcn. Many words in the language are difficult to translate into English and many First Nations names were changed when European settlers arrived in the area. “A lot of our place names got truncated when Europeans came and they couldn’t pronounce them properly,” said Ruby Alexis, a cultural researcher for the Okanagan Indian Band. “That makes it hard

to translate some of our place names.” In her work to find and document place names that may have been lost over the years, Alexis has come across the word Pelmewash as the original name for Wood Lake on early maps produced by the Hudson’s Bay Company. But she has yet to confirm beyond a shadow of a doubt that the name is actually part of the Nsylixcn language spoken by the Okanagan Indians that first lived in the area. She plans to speak with elders and others

who have expertise in the area to further research the name. “I like it when we find old names,” she said. “I’m fairly comfortable that (Pelmewash) is one of ours. It would be nice to have a translation. We can’t always translate the names but I will try to.” Alexis says the end of the name Pelmewash (ewash) may mean a narrowing of land and could refer to the narrowing of Wood Lake where it joins Kalamalka Lake near Oyama. Okanagan Indian Band chief Byron Lewis was thankful that the district had chosen to honour his band’s history with the new name, even though he had never heard of it before. “I think it’s a nice gesture,” said Lewis. “One of the things we’d like to do is do some research and talk to our elders about the name and make sure it’s correct. But it’s a nice gesture and something we appreciate.” ••• The man who submitted the name Pelmewash Parkway for consideration is not a member of the Okanagan Indian Band. Retired UBC Okanagan associate history professor Duane Thomson is a long-time Oyama resident and also something of an expert on the history of the area when it comes to the interaction of white settlers and First Nations.

Parkinson Activity Centre offers meeting place for local seniors Alistair Waters ASSISTANT EDITOR

Kelowna’s new seniors’ centre has been officially opened at the Parkinson Recreation Centre. Renamed the Parkinson Activity Centre, the new, two-storey, 13,000-square-foot building will be a place that better meets the needs of Kelowna seniors, said Mayor Walter Gray during a ribbon-cutting ceremony Thursday morning. It replaces the old Water Street Senior’s Centre on the downtown lakeshore. That building will now be demolished

to make way for a new Kelowna Yacht Club. The yacht club’s existing location, beside the old seniors centre, will, in turn, become space for an expansion of Jim Stuart Park. Gray said the new $4.1 million activity centre— which will also be available to host programs for people who are not seniors—was built on budget and on schedule. It contains a main hall that opens onto a large grassed area on the banks of Mill Creek, a commercial-grade kitchen, an activity room, meeting room, a computer lab and a billiard room. The latter

two rooms will be for the exclusive use of the newly renamed Parkinson Seniors’ Society. Carole Bridges, president of the society said seniors moved into the new activity centre Nov 13 and some programs are already up and running. The popular computer programs will start in January and anyone interested is advised to contact the centre by December if they want to register. “The more we use the space, the more we can call it our own,” Bridges told the gathering of about 100 seniors who showed up to watch the

ribbon-cutting. In his remarks, Gray touted the new location as being convenient because it is adjacent to the Parkinson Recreation Centre and because it has good transportation links being on Harvey Avenue and major bus routes. But, while one lady in the crowd welcomed the new building, she said the mayor may have been overstating the transportation convenience of the new centre. Barbara Roberts said she is concerned the city has cut some bus routes that are popular with seniors and that might make it

Bridges said the new digs will make a difference. “It will enable many classes to he held without (the participants) being disturbed,” she said. In the old centre, the main hall was only accessible through the lounge area, so that meant people often passed through during various classes. Both Gray and Bridges praised the volunteers who helped plan the new building. “I think the city spent more time on planing and fine-tuning this building than it has on any other building in Kelowna,” said Bridges.

House fire on Burnett

A fire that started on the kitchen stove of a Kelowna residence at 2261 Burnett St. spread into the walls of the house on Thursday morning. There were six occupants in the house at the time, three adults and three children, and all evacuated the premises safely. The fire was quickly brought under control, but the kitchen area suffered significant damage, and there was smoke damage throughout the house. The fire is not considered suspicious.

You can’t lose weight till You lose Your pain

Unfortunately many people who are overweight are also in pain. It is a simple fact that for many people their pain is preventing them from losing weight. Most people who are overweight are running several health risks, including: diabetes; heart disease; and even cancer. These are all diseases that you have a greater risk of developing when you are overweight. So, what do you need to do to lose weight? You can start by cleaning up your diet - eating less

junk food and more healthy foods. But diet alone is seldom enough. Adding nutritional supplements to your diet is also usseful for losing weight. A multi vitamin, digestive enzymes, and even resveratrol have all been used successfully to support losing weight. But just like a good diet alone these supplements alone are seldom enough. Some people have resorted to using pharmaceutical hormone preparations like HCG, also known as human chorionic gonadotrophin, to lose weight. While effective for some, I have my

reservations about using HCG. If you have thyroid hormone problems, and those problems are due to an autoimmune reaction, then you have a high risk of developing an autoimmune reaction to HCG as well. By the way, if you are allergic to the gluten in grains like wheat you have a risk of developing an allergic cross reaction to your thyroid. The best way to have an ideal bodyweight is to eat a healthy diet, use nutritional supplements, and to move your body. Yes, exercise. There is no substitute for exercise if you want to lose weight.

Unfortunately if you have pain, in your knees, hips, and back, then exercising to lose weight is not an option for you. If you are in pain and overweight then you need to start improving your health by regenerating your joints. This is where I can help. I have developed treatment plans to solve joint pain by turning back on your natural ability to heal. Get started losing unwanted weight by losing your pain first. To lose your pain call my office for an appointment.

NEWS ▼ CHRISTMAS CONTEST

Share a childhood Christmas gift memory could be rewarding Barry Gerding EDITOR

For most adults fortunate enough to have a youngster on our Christmas shopping list, buying a gift for that special someone can take us back in time. Back to when we were kids ourselves, when it was other adults— our parents, other relatives or family friends—who were buying gifts for us. For just about everyone, those gifts spark memories which we carry with us throughout our lives, some positive and some not always so positive. But they resonate in the back of our minds from year to year, always taking on a greater significance and meaning for us this time of the year. We at the Capital News would like to tap into some of those stories within the auspices of a new contest. We’re asking our readers to submit a tale about the most memorable Christmas gift you ever received as a child, whether it was thoughtful, generous, unusual or just plain tacky. We will collect your submissions and choose what we feel is the story with the most resonance as

winner of a $100 gift certificate. We will publish the winner and as many other entries as we can in the Capital News editions leading up to Christmas next month. Submission can be emailed to us at edit@kelownacapnews.com or dropped off at our office, 2495 Enterprise Way. Also, watch for a contest entry button link on our website at www.kelownacapnews.com. The entry deadline will be Tuesday, Dec. 11, 5 p.m. In thinking about this suggestion for a Christmas seasons contest, it got me to thinking about my own childhood gifts, and there was one familiar tale that came to mind. During my elementary school years, I would receive a personal gift from our aunt in Alberta, our mom’s sister, who ignored the family rule not to exchange Christmas gifts with other relatives because there just too many of us. My aunt diligently sent me cologne every year that was encased in an automobile-themed container. One year is was a blue clear sedan, another time it was a spark plug. Besides the fact I was too young to really get the whole cologne thing, this stuff was packed with a scent that would burn the nostril

hairs in your nose if you smelled it. We used to joke it might be useful as carburetor cleaner or perhaps as anti-freeze for the family car. But I’d open the gift, take a whiff of the cologne to clear out my sinuses, and never really look at it again. To this day I’ve never been one to wear cologne, and perhaps that is the reason for it. But while I quickly dispatched myself from these gifts, my mom did not. Just this past summer, I noticed at their home sitting on the bathroom shelf, that clear blue sedan, some 40+ years later. I took the cap off to take a whiff; the cologne had long since evaporated, but the stench was still as clear then as it was those many years ago. My aunt died early this fall at the age of 98, having been stricken with Alzhemier’s for more than a decade, my mom really unable to communicate with her. But she held on to those gifts we all scoffed at all those years ago. With my aunt now gone, the memory of that little car carries on, and I suspect one day it may well end up in my house. So how about you? Do you have a Christmas gift memory to share? We’d love to hear it.

adhering to that rule. “If the rules are in place, and they form a basis for buying in here, it’s not at all unreasonable to expect they’re going to be enforced,” said Masson. Earlier this year, Masson and a few others arranged a meeting to discuss the possibility of forming a homeowners association with site management to discuss common issues. On June 29, a group calling themselves Westview Village Concerned Homeowners sent a letter to Ross Management Ltd., expressing concerns that certain residents are not abiding by the rules and regulations. On July 26, John Ross, of Ross Management Ltd., replied to the letter and indicated that Masson and other residents can’t claim to be a homeowners association. Any group formed that claim to be representing homeowners must be with the consent and agreement of both owner and majority of homeowners, Ross wrote. There are just under 300 mobile homes in Westview Village, and a total of 10 residents are listed as the “concerned homeowners.” According to Marcus Hadley, council secretariat with Westbank First Nation, homeowners are required to get landlord approval under the Residential Premises Law. “If the landlord doesn’t approve of the association from the very beginning, then there’s no way they’re going to have conversations involving issues,” said Hadley. The WFN does have an arbitration process, which Hadley said is

modelled after provincial law. “That arbitration process is generally focused on individual tenants who are in dispute with the landlord, rather than the more general complaints that are being put forward Shere by certain residents of (Westview Village),” said Hadley. “There are relatively narrow grounds to bring a dispute to an arbitrator…we can’t be getting involved in every dispute that comes up. You expect reasonable people to exert reasonable efforts to resolve these issues themselves.” He added both the landlord and various residents from Westview Village have been to arbitration for a number of issues in the past. “I think (Westview Village) is an example where things are going a little wrong. “These residents are at the point—and they’re certainly entitled to do this—where they can bring some of these concerns to the court. They might be in a situation very soon where that’s what they do.” But Masson and the other concerned homeowners say they would prefer a “non-confrontational” approach to resolving issues. “It’s pretty tough to mediate when one of the parties involved doesn’t come to the table,” said Masson. Capital News attempted to reach Ross for an interview, however he declined to comment on the situation. In a letter sent to Masson July 9, Ross outlined several maintenance and repairs that were scheduled to be done over the summer.

Some of that work was completed, but not all of it, according to Masson. The letter also addressed rule 4.1, stating: “We are constantly talking to tenants and giving them letters to abide by all the rules. It is definitely in my interest and the homeowners’ to keep this park looking good at all times.” But Masson and a handful of other residents claim that’s not the case. “It’s insane, had we known that this situation existed, there’s not one of us who would’ve ever bought a place in here,” said Masson. wpaterson @kelownacapnews.com

letter of the week We don’t all love using wretched computers To the editor: Re: Take My Job and Shove it in the Recycling Bin, Nov. 16 Capital News. Thank you (Kathy Michaels) for writing that marvellous column. What about the hundreds and hundreds of people who do not have a computer or any other electronic device? My neighbour waits eagerly for the newspaper every day as do many of us who love to read the news, not just hear it on the radio or on TV, as well as doing the crosswords. Newspapers have a lot of other uses also and I hope we never have to go without them. Books are a blessing we can never do without. Another gripe of mine is that advertisers gaily say, “Look it up on line,” or “Go on line for more information,” etc. This is very annoying for a lot of people—and not only the ones who don’t have a computer,but for a lot of us who do (look it up) but prefer to use (a computer) as little as possible.

Little new as B.C. Liberals rally the troops

L

iberal delegates gathered for their convention on the weekend at the Chateau Whistler, the same luxury hotel where Gordon Campbell fired up the troops in 2008. Back then the advertising slogan was “Keep BC Strong.” Unveiled at Premier Christy Clark’s pre-election pep rally: “Together. Building BC.” This slight change hints at the big difference. Campbell led a front-running party to a third straight majority, while Clark is a struggling underdog pleading for unity to turn back an NDP tsunami. Hence “Free Enterprise Friday,” a discussion open to non-party members. Clark began with an upbeat speech ur-

ging party members to “reach out our arms, open the tent and be as big as we can possibly be.” So did they? Dashing between three conTom current sessions, I Fletcher missed a fair amount of it, but there were some provocative suggestions to appeal to those inclined to support the resurgent B.C. Conservatives. An accountant spoke to a packed room about the growing unfunded liability of public sector pensions, most of which are still of the “defined benefit” variety. Based on bond interest rates that have since sunk to all-time lows, these government-guaranteed pensions are now a free ride for those lucky enough to have them, funded by the

VICTORIA VIEWS

taxes of private sector workers who in many cases have no pension plan at all. There was talk of passing a law that all new public sector hires be restricted to a “defined contribution” plan where the employee and employer contribute equally and the pension is based on what those contributions yield. This would provoke the mother of all confrontations with the B.C. Federation of Labour, but there was no evidence yet that this is going beyond the talking stage. The resolutions continued the theme of confronting the labour movement, ritual combat that seems to be an inescapable part of B.C. elections. Delegates passed two motions, one calling for public sector unions to disclose what they spend on salaries, political activities and lobbying, and another advocating a ban on unions spend-

ing compulsory dues on political campaigns. This is a pet project of Nechako Lakes MLA John Rustad, whose constituency sponsored both motions. Rustad presented a private member’s bill last year to require detailed disclosure, but it was left to die on the order paper. Like all the policy resolutions debated at the convention, these ideas are not binding on the government. Again, there is no actual change on the horizon. Delegates rejected another motion that would have made membership in the B.C. Teachers’ Federation optional. This would have been a declaration of war on B.C.’s most militant union, just as Clark and Education Minister Don

Re: Loss of Ambulance Upsetting to Big White, Nov. 20 Capital News. Lorraine Phillip All ski resorts need an ambulance service, if they remove it they will end up with law suits, it would be idiocy. Cher Hill Last season at Big White the ambulance rushed my twoyear-old son to KGH after he stopped breathing due to a seizure (he had never had one before). I can’t begin to tell you how grateful we were to have an ambulance on the mountain. I feel horrified to think that this service is no longer available to us. Susan Clark Another government decision that will result in the loss of lives before they realize what a stupid decision it was—all to save a few dollars to waste on something inane.

COMMENTS FROM kelownacapnews.com Kumari Beck This is the result of stupid, backwards ‘cost saving’ measures. Tis my day to be pissed. Cathy Fraser In my opinion I would have thought the powers that be in the ambulance service would see the benefit of keeping a bus on the mountain because of the financial contribution to the Okanagan with the potential of 17,000 people on the mountain at any one time from all over the world and the lack of concern for safety from the government officials does not inspire confidence in their duty of care toward tourists, very sad. Angela Hey This is a terrible decision. I fell off a chair lift at Mammoth (fortunately Big White has safety bars on all lifts) and was very glad that an ambulance was at

the base to take me to the local hospital. All kinds of accidents can happen at ski resorts. To the credit of Big White they don’t happen as often as at other resorts. I once worked at a startup company in California that had a ski trip to which a Dutchman was invited. He laughed about his high cholesterol—the next day he collapsed and died on the ski slopes. It is essential to have ambulance service for the odd occasion when someone has a crash, heart attack, stroke, road accident, fall or more. I hope B.C. will reconsider its decision. Either that or do what our local fire companies are doing here and having their own ambulance. As a fallback we should consider having a whip round so

that the Big White fire brigade can buy an ambulance. It’s not fair to pull the ambulance just before the start of ski season. Can someone find a list of people to write to—we need a concerted campaign from Big White Skiers to overturn this insane decision. Maybe Big White fire brigade can raise $10,000 to buy a used ambulance, make it snowworthy, get someone to drive it to Big White, then solicit ongoing funds to maintain it. http:// www.elite911.com/inventory/. In our part of California the fire brigade often responds before the ambulance as there are more fire stations than ambulance stations nearby. This is clearly a cost, not a money making operation, but what price are lives? Also how many skiers will change plans and go where health facilities are better? $10,000 is around 20 season passes, given some are less than $500 for early bird seniors and some cost more?

one. Recently, the BC Utilities Commission came to town and listened to customer feedback regarding Fortis’s request for approval from the Commission to install smart meters. The Commission’s mandate is that it (and I quote): “oversees the regulation of energy utilities to ensure that the rates charged are fair, just and reasonable, and that utility operations provide safe and adequate service

to their customers.” Fortis is supposed to operate similar to a publicly-owned utility, which traditionally was non-profit. Fortis’s net earnings increased to $139 million in 2011. So much for operating similar to a publicly owned, non-profit utility. Fortis says the smart meters will save money. For who? As Barrie Black noticed, utility rates have never gone down due to increased profits. The

Commission must decide whether adding smart meters are “…fair, just and reasonable…” I’m sure that all the meter reading employees who will lose their jobs won’t think so. With our economy flirting with another recession, laying off a huge number of people is not in the public’s best interest. If the commission can’t enforce that aspect alone, then our provincial politicians should. D. Janko, Kelowna

mented on the fact that lots of people do not have a computer and was blithely told that there are computers one can use at the library. So what? If people

prefer not to use computers they should at least have the option of being able to contact these business people by phone— most people have one of those.

McRae embark on a longshot bid to end the decades of confrontation that have defined that relationship since teachers were relegated to the industrial union model of labour relations. There was a brief debate on a motion to scrap the carbon tax, sponsored by northern members who see it as unfairly punitive on those who

endure cold weather and long highway drives for themselves and the goods they need to have trucked in. This was rejected too, after delegates were reminded that the tax now takes in more than $1 billion annually that is used to reduce business and personal income taxes. Scrapping it would amount to announcing across-the-board income tax hikes, contra-

dicting 12 years of B.C. Liberal policy just before an election. The good news for Clark is that the 2012 convention was a highenergy, well-attended event that contradicts the notion of a party in disarray. The bad news is, nothing has really changed.

t’s become quite common in the Central Okanagan for residents to see bears up close. While this may be magical in some cultures, a practical nature would see the danger in it. First off, bears weigh more than most humans and are frequently taller when they stand on their hind legs, but even more importantly, they’re strong—and I don’t just mean the smell. And, despite the leisurely, rolling gait and the look of awkwardness, they can move extremely fast. But above all, they have claws and teeth, which they don’t hesitate to use when they feel threatened or when they’re feeling predatory. Plus, their sense of smell is phenomenal; far beyond anything we can imagine. I buried a few tablespoons of bonemeal a foot or so deep in my garden with a few spring-flowering bulbs, and I watched the other day as a bear dug up those bulbs in mere seconds to get at the smell of that bonemeal. Maybe he thought he’d buried a kill there or something. Anyway, I wasn’t sorry I was two storeys and a pane of glass away from him. It would be perfectly natural if you accidentally came upon a bear in a wilderness park or on a trail in the wild, but these are bears in people’s yards, which is not natural since they’re naturally pretty shy of people. There are a number of reasons for this, some of which we can change to prevent such proximity and contact, and some of which we can’t. We have moved into bear habitat and many of us live in forested areas naturally inhabited by bears; or we live on the verge of our communities, up close to wilderness areas where bears live. Fewer people hunt bears, in part because some sectors in society frown on hunting and because their attitude, as reflected by legislation, is anti-gun. It’s an unfortunate attitude perpetuated by those increasing numbers of urbanites who have lost touch with their roots in the country. They’ve confused guns with gang violence and illegal activities, which is the prevalent use of guns in cities. They forget they’re also a basic tool for living in proximity to large wild animals, and for foraging in the wild for food—as well as being a piece of equipment used in sports, whether that’s hunting or target shooting. That decline in hunting has emboldened bears around our communities and has led to increased populations of them in recent years. They have no natural enemies except

man and themselves, and their numbers are naturally only limited by food. Since some residents insist on luring them into residential areas with food such as garbage left out in the open, pet food left outdoors, bird feeders full of high-calorie feed and unTRAIL used fruit and nuts on MIX their landscape trees, it’s also up to us to take action to stop attracting them. That’s where the B.C. Conservation FoundaJudie tion’s Bear Aware procomes in. It’s a very Steeves gram effective, province-wide program that comes complete with trained coordinator, toolkit and proven strategy. All it needs is grassroots support in the community where it’s needed to encourage the local civic government to set aside a small amount of money to pay the coordinator for a portion of the year and an office. BCCF is a non-profit group and can sometimes help underwrite some of the cost, but it doesn’t have the resources to pay for it all. Local conservation officer Terry Myroniuk has agreed to chair a group of residents interested in bringing Bear Aware to the Central Okanagan, but there has to be interest from the community for it to go ahead. There was a Bear Aware program here in 2005 and 2006, and it made a significant difference, but it was not funded locally, and the funding from BCCF or the province was not available to continue it. If you’re willing to help bring the program here, contact Myroniuk at: Terry.Myroniuk@gov.bc.ca Judie Steeves writes about outdoors issues for the Capital News. jsteeves@kelownacapnews.com

City boys visit hometown roots with Washboard Union Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

After rocking their introduction to the Okanagan headlining the City Park Canada Day celebration, bluegrass special The Washboard Union return to play their pseudo-hometown for the second time this year. It will be their first time in the “new” Rotary Arts Centre building; an addition since brothers Chris Duncombe (banjo, dojo and vocals) and Aaron Grain (guitar and vocals) left here nearly a couple of decades ago. “Our parents will be in the crowd,” said Grain, noting it will be a good birthday present for his father who celebrated earlier in the week. Grain grew up attending Glenrosa Elementary and Duncombe attended Lakeview Elementary School, so one might say the lakeshore and Waterfront Park are their old stomping grounds—even if the Cultural District was somewhat nonexistent at that point. Both left long be-

fore the RCA was ever built, going on to some fairly big creative careers, Duncombe working as a music correspondent for Global Television and managing the Classic Rock 101 and 99.3 The Fox radio stations in addition to playing in several bands; and Grain running a video production company and composing for film and television over and above his bands. All of that said, it wasn’t connections in the music industry that bought the band their spot on The Island Stage over the summer. The Washboard Union landed the Canada Day gig off their website and it wound up being their last show with drummer Matt Van Dyke, though it launched a major summer of touring. After releasing their first album five days after their Kelowna visit, they were scheduled to offer up a string of musical breakdowns culminating with spots at Live at Squamish and Victoria’s Rifflandia Festival when Van Dyke had a breakdown (of sorts) of his

“It’s really exciting to be part of something that’s growing beyond the efforts we put in ourselves,” said Grain, noting they received a good deal of press. The Washboard Union will be at the Commodore shortly after this performance to open for Dallas Smith of City in Colour and Alexis on Fire fame—quite the coup for a bluegrass band still touring its first album. As Grain is quick to point out, though, the seven have really been playing together for eight years—originally under the name Run GMC— and what started as a lark into country for a gaggle of guys raised on punk, rock and hip hop has really proved their niche. “It’s kind of hard to tell where one band ends and the next begins,” said Grain.

Light/shade conditions—what areas have six or more hours of full sun in summer, what areas get only morning or late afternoon sun, what areas are shaded all day or get only early morning sun? Did any plants get crispy edges (too much sun. or grow tall and lean toward the sun (too much shade)? 2. Moisture conditions—are there any naturally occurring moist areas that could be utilized by more water thirsty plants? Are there drainage problems? These need to be corrected first. For ideas check www.okwaterwise.ca/waterwise-inthe-yard. 3. Wind—what direction does the wind come from in summer and in winter? Is it so strong that a windbreak is needed to protect plants and make it more pleasant to be outside? 4. Soil—did plants fail to thrive, was the soil compacted and hard to dig, did water drain through too fast? 5. Trees—what trees do you want to keep? Remember, they take a long

Gwen Steele time to grow and give beneficial shade. Deciduous trees provide cooling shade in summer but allow in cheery winter sun. These are useful anywhere. Evergreen trees provide good windbreaks but other than on the north side, if they are close to a building they obscure the winter sun. 6. Where do you have good views from inside as well as outside? You want to avoid planting anything that will grow up to obscure the view. 7. Where do you have ugly views of things on your own property or off your property and out of your control? You can plan your landscaping to hide these. 8. Are there existing natural landforms or native vegetation? Try to incorporate these into your plan rather than fighting to change them. 9.

To my surprise, after taking Bell Snoring & Sleep Apnea Relief #23 I really didn’t snore or gasp for air anymore. I sleep #23 through the night and feel rested and refreshed in the morning. Mark Wilson, 40, Hudson, NH < Sleep apnea capsules worked first night! For last 15 years I had sleep apnea and my doctor made me buy a CPAP machine, which I could not use. Finally Bell #23 helped the first night and every night thereafter. Like a miracle. Unbelievable. Karen Braun, 67, Glace Bay, NS < For 20 years I was waking up frequently gasping for air. During the day I would start napping every time I would sit down, because I was tired. Since taking Bell #23 sleeping 6 hours is heaven. It made a substantial change in my life. Mary C. Myrick, 62, Jackson, MS <It is such a joy not having to use the CPAP machine. I have had sleep apnea for 10 years. Using Bell#23, my wife says there is no more snoring or stoppage of breathing.

Stem Cell Activator

Helps to activate naturally millions of stem cells from our own bone marrow. The increase in stem cells released from the bone marrow into the blood stream have the potential to become other types of tissue cells with specialized function. Stem cells will multiply and are able to become heart cells, liver cells or any other organ. Located everywhere in our body, stem cells are even under our skin layered between the epidermis and dermis. This is why an increase in stem cells under our skin may help to create a more youthful cell that would replenish elastin and collagen and thus may make us look younger. If our bone marrow does not produce enough stem cells this can result in many illnesses, especially a weak heart, kidneys, liver, pancreas, in fact all healthy functions of our body are decreased. Sufficient stem cells in our body have a great potential of self-repair and the ability to rejuvenate tissues. It does not contain live human stem cells as these can only be transplanted by surgery and are subject to immuno-suppressant drugs to avoid graft rejection. Naturopathic Doctor summarized his experience in writing after using this Stem Cell Activator: Used for all organ and tissue damage, heart attack damage, osteo-arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, traumatic brain injury, muscular dystrophy, Crohn’s disease, diabetes, lupus, spinal injuries, and other diseases and tissue damage. The results have been #63 very satisfactory to us and to the patients and the time varies with different patients depending on the extremity of the damage. Women witnessing the effects of Bell Stem Cell Activator: <Women looking for antiaging help! We all want to slow down aging. After using a bottle of Bell Stem Cell Activator #63 my skin seemed smoother and brighter. My hair looked healthier. It seems to have a cleansing effect. I’m delighted. Leona McCormick, 50, Clgary, AB < All around healing effect! The first thing I noticed after starting Bell Stem Cell Activator #63 was that my skin feels firmer and stronger. My friends commented that my skin looks more vibrant. My doctor at my yearly physical told me that my blood pressure is significantly lower. Many good things are happening.

▼ ACKNOWLEDGEMENT

Hall of Fame enshrines inductees for 2012

U H

Awards handed out at breakfast gala Thursday, Nov. 22. Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

Ken Perry isn’t alone in reflecting on 1988 as one of the most remarkable years of his life. The former linebacker has plenty of Okanagan Sun teammates, coaches, volunteers and fans who share his fondness for the B.C. junior football club’s first ever Canadian title. The Sun went undefeated en route to the national glory that season, shutting out the Burlington Ti-Cats 50-0 in the championship game. Twenty-four years later, the Sun has been enshrined in the team category into the Central Okanagan Sports Hall of Fame. “Never once while playing in ’88 did we ever think how far in the future this would take us,” said Perry. “We never once thought an occasion like today would occur, it’s a very humbling experience. “If it were not for a total, complete effort from the players, coaches, support staff, executive, cheerleader and of course the Okanagan fans this championship would not have been possible,” Perry continued. “It was truly a remarkable time we’ll remember all of our lives.” The Sun was one of five new inductees introduced into the Central Okanagan Sports Hall of Fame Thursday morning at the fifth annual breakfast gala at the Coast Capri Hotel.

DOUGLAS FARROW/CONTRIBUTOR

THE 2012 CENTRAL OKANAGAN SPORTS HALL OF FAME inductees (left to right) are: Alex Recsky;

Betty Urness on behalf of the late Dr. Barry Urness; Ken Perry and Lawrence Nagy representing the 1988 Okanagan Sun; Glenn Ennis and Erminia Russo. Dr. Barry Urness (right) was inducted posthumously in the WAC-W.R. Bennett Special Recognition category. The other inductees in the class of 2012 are:

GLENN ENNIS—ATHLETE

A Kelowna Secondary School grad, Ennis went on to achieve national and international fame in the sport of rugby. A member of Canada’s first ever World Cup team in 1987, Ennis would play in two more World Cups in 1991 and 1995 where he served as vice-captain. A world allstar in 1988 and 1991, Ennis played professional rugby in Japan for 10 years. Following his rugby career, Ennis became a Hollywood stuntman, appearing in more than 15 movies. Ennis is thrilled by his induction in his hometown. “Growing up here as

a kid, there were many names in the sporting community here that I looked up to” said Ennis. “So to be part of an institution that includes names like that is really a big honour and a thrill for me. “Having played a lot of my sporting career and my rugby overseas, to be grounded where I grew up in something like this really does mean a lot to me and makes me feel at home.”

ERMINIA RUSSO —ATHLETE

After nurturing her volleyball skills in Kelowna with the KLO Cougars, Russo became a prominent member of the UBC Thunderbirds women’s program. In 1985, she joined Canada’s national women’s team where she

played in more than 150 matches over eight seasons. In 1989, she was named captain of Team Canada. Russo played in the 1996 Olympics, two world championships, two World Cups and two Pan American Games. “I’ve always been really proud to be from Kelowna, no matter where I went I always made sure people knew I was born and raised in Kelowna,” said Russo. “The number of great athletes that have come out of Kelowna is quite an impressive list and I’m really honoured to be recognized with that group. “Really volleyball was just a game that I loved and a passion of mine,” added Russo, “and I was so fortunate for that pas-

sion to turn into a career for me, an incredible journey that I was able to accomplish so much.”

ALEX RECSKY—BUILDER

As a volunteer, Recsky’s fingerprints can be found everywhere in the local sports community. A former physiotherapist with the CFL’s Calgary Stampeders, Recsky has volunteered his services to many teams and causes over the past 20 years, including the UBC Okanagan Heat, the Kelowna Rockets, Okanagan Sun, the B.C. Senior Games, and the World Junior Hockey Championship. “Thanks to everyone who has supported me over the years,” said Recsky. “I’ve volunteered be-

cause it help others feel good, and a bonus of doing that is it makes me feel good. Another bonus when you volunteer with young people, is it keeps you feeling young.”

DR. BARRY URNESS (1942-2012) —BENNETT SPECIAL RECOGNITION AWARD

The late Barry Urness was a tireless organizer and volunteer in the local sports community for more than 40 years. Considered by many as a visionary, Urness was a founding member of the Okanagan Sun football club, a past president of the Kelowna Amateur Sports Society, a member of the Kelowna Civic Awards Committee for 25 years, and the founder of Central Okanagan Sports Hall of Fame. Urness passed away in the summer of 2012.

Barry’s wife, Betty, who was on hand to accept the induction, said her husband derived great joy from watching others have success. “Apart from Barry’s legendary schemes and dreams, more than anything else Barry was a fan, in fact the ultimate fan,” said Betty Urness. “He believed in people and more than anything else wanted them to succeed, and he loved to shine the spotlight on those who achieved goals whether as an individual or as a team. “Barry loved being part of something that was bigger than himself,” she added. “The lasting influence of his leadership is seen all over this wonderful city, and points to his belief in a world of possibility. “If there was a way, Barry was determined to find it.”

SPORTS ▼ HIGH SCHOOL

Unbeaten OKM Huskies strike B.C. gold It may have taken seven rounds of a shootout in the provincial final, but the OKM Huskies completed a perfect season with a 2-1 win over Port Coquitlam’s Archbishop Carney Stars to win the B.C. AA high school boys’ soccer title. It was sweet redemption for the Huskies, who had lost in a shootout at last year’s provincials that would have sent them to the gold medal game before winning the bronze medal, also in a shootout. It was the school’s first provincial banner in any sport in 21 years. “The boys have had a fantastic, phonemenal season,” said Huskies head coach Tony Overton. “It was a special team effort, not just by the 11

starters on the field but by all 20 players.” Andrew Stevenson had given OKM a 1-0 lead in the first half of the final, only to see the Port Coquitlam school tie the game in the 70th minute and force a shootout. After both teams first shot was stopped, the next five players each scored for both schools with OKM goals coming from MacKenzie Rigg, Mike Sexton, Alex Beutle, Matt Fielding and Ben McDonald before the winner was scored by senior Jesse Nanci. The victory capped off an unbeaten season for the Huskies who finished with a perfect 28-0 record. “I’m very pleased in that we only conceded

14 goals all season long,” said Overton. “On top of a good, strong defense, we had solid offence and scoring from all positions. “This was a dangerous team…a fantastic group of guys to work with.” Huskies’ midfielder MacKenzie Rigg was named the tournament’s MVP. Dylan Wagner earned a Golden Boot, while Andrew Stevenson was named to the Commissioner’s 11 all-star team. Coach Overton also credited keeper Mike Sexton with an outstanding tournament in the Huskies’ goal. “It would have been very difficult to win without (Mike),” Overton said.

Toshido celebrates a good night

Stadel pumped for Challenge

It may have been called Battlefield 19 but it became known as Team Toshido’s night earlier this month at the South Okanagan Events Centre as the Kelowna based mixed martial arts club dominated a night of MMA in Penticton. Five fighters from Toshido Mixed Martial Arts in Kelowna competed at Battlefield Fight League (BFL 19), the most ever fighters from Toshido to compete on the same card in the club’s 14-year history. Despite the enormous pressure, Team Toshido went on to completely dominate the compe-

that I will always remember,” stated an overjoyed David Lea, head coach of Toshido MMA. “Everyone performed perfectly and showcased the mixed martial arts talent that we have coming out of Kelowna. The icing on top came when Matt Dwyer became the undisputed BFL Professional Welterweight World Champion.” Dwyer follows a long legacy of champions to come out of the Toshido MMA gym including current UFC star Rory MacDonald who won the KOTC Professional National and World titles while still in his teens. Dwyer defeated Ryan

Chiappe via TKO at 4:37 of the first round to win the BFL Professional Welterweight World Championship, capping off a great night by Kelowna fighters. Along with Dwyer claiming the Battlefield welterweight title, other results included: •Team Toshido’s Cuba Echegoyen won his MMA debut against Bryce Kilpatrick via ankle lock at 2:20 of round one. •Team Toshido’s Cleve Bentley defeated Brandon Shorter by unanimous decision.

It was a call to the coach’s office Riley Stadel didn’t mind receiving. The 16 year-old defenceman for the Kelowna Rockets was summoned last Thursday morning, just before the Western Hockey League team was boarding a bus for Kennewick, Washington for a two-game series with the Tri-Cities Americans. Stadel, a Cloverdale native, was informed he had been selected to play for Team Pacific at the World Junior Under-17 Hockey Challenge Dec. 29 to Jan. 4 in Drummondville and Victoriaville, Quebec. “They (coaching staff) called me into the office and showed me the (Team Pacific) roster,” said Stadel Sunday afternoon from Kelowna, just hours after returning from Kennewick. “I was not expecting it. But I’ve worked hard and played well this season, so it wasn’t a total surprise.” Stadel was short-

team. Players continued to be evaluated for the first two months of the current season, with the final team announced last Thursday. The tournament features five regional teams from Canada—Pacific (B.C. and Alberta), West (Saskatchewan and Manitoba), Ontario, Quebec at Atlantic (Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland and Labrador)—as well as the national under-17 teams of Russia, Slovakia, Finland, Sweden and the United States. Anxious to wear a Hockey Canada uniform for the tournament, Stadel was still waiting to hear what his role will be in Quebec at the end of next A month. “It was hard to talk to the (Team Pacific) coaches because I was in the United States all weekend,” he said. “But I will etalk to them a little more min the next couple of days.” Stadel is in his first season with the Rockets, having played his first two games at the Major Junior level with Kelowna at the end of last year. The only 16-year-old among the nine blueliners on the Rockets roster, he has

played in 17 of 22 games this season, scoring once and assisting on six others. “It’s been pretty good this year,” he said. “I’ve been doing pretty well lately. I thought I’ve played well, been pretty solid defensively.” Stadel is in his second season in the Okanagan, moving to Penticton prior to the start of last year to join the Okanagan Hockey Academy (OHA) following his final season at the Bantam level with the Cloverdale Minor Hockey Association. “They (OHA) called and asked if I wanted to come,” he said. “My parents and I saw what they had to offer, and I thought I would develop better there than I would in the (B.C. Hockey) Major Midget League.” Playing one season of Midget hockey at OHA helped him decide to join the Rockets, and playing two games at the end of last season was “huge” in helping him make the jump. “The speed in The Dub (WHL) is a lot faster than Midget,” he said. “And the players are so much bigger. Those two games gave me a chance to see what I should expect for this season.” He’s not sure what to expect in Quebec next

If you find yourself running for cover every time someone coughs, or missing days of work due to chronic colds and flu, then your immune system may need help. Plant sterols help balance the immune system to fight chronic colds and flu, especially in the winter months when our immune systems can be under constant attack. Plant sterols are essential to the body, but like vitamin C, the body cannot synthesize them, they have to be ingested. However, due to the modern processing of food, today’s diets tend to be deficient in sterols. Immuno-Care® is a one-a-day plant sterol supplement clinically tested and proven to support the body against colds, flu, seasonal allergies, infection, inflammation and the symptoms of auto-immune diseases.

Salahor a producer on Kelowna Chiefs offensive lineup

Warren Henderson

STAFF REPORTER

In his third season with the Kelowna Chiefs, Jordan Salahor has found his comfort zone in the offensive zone. With nine goals and 23 assists in 22 games, the 19-year-old centre is the Chiefs’ top point producer and fourth overall in scoring in the Kootenay Inter-

national Junior Hockey League. Thanks to a combination of experience, skill and hockey smarts, 201213 has been Salahor’s breakout campaign. “He’s always had the skill set, but now he’s got the experience, this is his third year in the league and he’s pretty familiar with the way things work,” said Chiefs’ head

coach Ken Andrusiak. “He gets lots of ice time, he’s our best face-off guy and he’s more committed than he’s been in past years. Jordan is playing well.” With Nick Josephs and Scott Renner on the wings, the 5-foot-9, 160-pound Salahor centres the club’s most productive line. The trio has accounted

The main reason I’m playing (in the league) is to win a championship.” Salahor has been key contributor in the team’s latest run of success as the Chiefs have gone 8-1-1 in the last 10 games. Salahor sees no reason the 2012-13 edition of the club can’t be as successful as the one that reached the KIJHL final last season. “I think absolutely we have the team to go as far as we did last year,” Salahor said. “We have speed and skill and we’re a hardworking team, so I think we’ll go far.” The Chiefs have a pair of home games this weekend, with Sicamous in town on Friday and Creston Valley here Saturday.

for more than a third of the team’s goals this season with 28. For Salahor’s part, lessons learned in his first two years in the KIJHL are paying dividends in the third. “My confidence has grown so much since my first year,” Salahor said. “I’m not a young guy anymore who feels scared. With more ice time, I’m getting in a groove this year and it’s been awesome.” After four seasons with Kelowna’s Pursuit of Excellence program, Salahor played a season of major midget with the Okanagan Rockets. And while moving from there to either major junior or junior A were among Salahor’s initial goals, playing junior B in his hometown has been a positive alternative. “It’s pretty nice to play

Pope in NHL scout sights Masters look out for each other David Pope’s dream of playing in the NHL one-day has been injected with a little more steam. The West Kelowna forward is on NHL Central Scouting’s preliminary rankings list for the 2013 entry draft. The Edmonton native is given a ‘C’ rating, meaning he’s a candidate most likely to go in the fourth to sixth round of the draft. Now an 18 year-old, Pope first began playing hockey at age three. He first moved away from home to play hockey at 13, and he is already midway through his second BCHL season. “It’s a tremendous honour,” said Pope of his inclusion in the rankings. “Playing in the NHL has always been a dream of mine, and just to be recognized means I have that chance of getting drafted.”

ALEX HILL/CONTRIBUTOR

WEST KELOWNA

Warriors David Pope listed as a watch player on NHL Central Scouting’s preliminary rankings. Having posted 16 points in 21 games so far this year, Pope was originally selected to play for Team West at the recent CJHL prospects game in Nova Scotia. However, he was unable to compete in the event due to illness.

However, the forward knows one sickness won’t signal the end of the dream. “Just being listed shows I’m on the radar. Missing that game might have hurt a little, but if [scouts] are really interested they can watch me here. Pope also adds that he’s over the bug that forced to miss one Warriors game, and feeling much better I think he could play pro hockey, I really do” says Warriors Coach/GM Rylan Ferster of Pope’s chances. “He’s got all the tools to play at the next few levels … and he just loves to play.” The 2013 NHL Entry Draft is scheduled for June 28-29, 2013, in New Jersey. West Kelowna visits Coquitlam this Friday, before hosting the Express on Saturday.

The Okanagan Masters Swim Club (OMSC) recognized the achievements of their members and other volunteers at their 2012 Annual General Meeting held last Sunday.

New study evaluates flu vaccine success

O

n Nov. 6, the most comprehensive analysis of flu shot efficacy and efficiency was published in the British medical journal, The Lancet. The authors concluded that the flu vaccine provided only moderate protection against influenza and in some years it made very little difference at all. Dr. Michael Osterholm, director of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota, stated that until now “no published meta-analysis has assessed the efficacy and effectiveness of licensed influenza vaccines in the USA with sensitivity and highly specific diagnostic test to confirm influenza.” His study is, to date, the largest and most conclusive study on the mat-

In analyzing these thousands of studies for statistical significance and proper design, he found that only 31 studies effectively and appropriately measured the relationship between influenza vaccination and influenza. He concluded that the great majority of studies, those that were disqualified from the study, vastly overestimated the health benefits of receiving influenza vaccine. His meta-analysis-

ed the estimated effectiveness of influenza vaccine from 70 to 90% to 50 to 70%. When analyzing study design and deeming whether or not it was appropriate or flawed, he found that “no such trials met inclusion criteria for children aged 2 to 17 years or adults 65 years or older.” So in essence, Dr. Bresee is saying that there are no studies to date that have effectively looked at the effectiveness of the flu vaccine from the ages of 2 to 17 and 65 or older. In his published, peer-reviewed study he states: “Every year, largescale campaigns in many developed countries are

undertaken to vaccinate all people aged 65 years or older to prevent serious illness and mortality. “With an estimated 90% of all seasonal influenza related mortality occurring in this group, and effective intervention is an important public health priority. However, this is the age group for which we have the least data supporting the efficacy or effectiveness of influenza vaccines to reduce morbidity and mortality.

found that the vaccine was about 59% effective overall in individuals 18 to 65 years of age. In other words, more than 40% of individuals who receive the flu shot received no protection against the flu. He further stated that an influenza vaccine ideally should be 85 to 95% effective for all ages to be considered a good vaccine.

Lessons from Las Vegas on water Judie Steeves STAFF REPORTER

There are lessons to be learned about water conservation from drier parts of the world, so the Okanagan is turning to Las Vegas for ideas about coping with water shortages here. The Irrigation Industry Association of B.C., in collaboration with the Okanagan Basin Water Board and Okanagan Waterwise, has invited Doug Bennett of the Southern Nevada Water Authority to Kelowna Dec. 5 to talk about leading edge water conservation trends and technologies. Everyone involved in managing water, including those in civic government, water-related businesses and others, are invited to attend the day-long conference at the Delta Grand, called “Water Conservation in the Okanagan: What can we learn from Las Vegas?” “Special attention will be given to how Okanagan water stakeholders-including regional and municipal governments,

water-related businesses, and other users, can prevent the water challenges that have plagued other drought-prone areas,” said Corinne Jackson, communications director for the OBWB. Some of the topics to be discussed by panels of experienced industry experts include Water

Modelling and Planning Strategies; Conservation Regulation and Enforcement Tools; Landscape and Irrigation Design Standards; and Water Budgeting and Rates. The idea is to prevent the water challenges that have plagued other drought-prone areas. Speakers will include

Anna Warwick Sears, executive-director of the Okanagan Basin Water Board, Ted van der Gulik, ministry of agriculture, Jahn Janmaat, UBCO, and Don Dobson, a hydrologist with Urban Systems Ltd. To register for the workshop, go to www.irrigationbc.com.

Pres. slept here

PALACE HOTEL, SAN FRANCISCO

Gary A. Warner CONTRIBUTOR

“Warren Harding died here” doesn’t quite have the tourist draw of “Washington slept here,” but for the Palace Hotel in San Francisco, the distinction of being the only hotel where a president of the United States drew his last breath is enough to put it into the pantheon of presidential sleep spots. Scores of hotels around the country can lay claim to a little White House luster, having bedded down famous men before, during or after their stints in the White House. Most will tack the term “Presidential Suite” onto the spot and start charging the highest rates in the house. But there are a handful of places around the country that have earned a tighter tie with presidential history. Two gave us political terms we still use—“lobbyist” and “smoke-filled rooms.” Another might have cost one man the presidency and later could have cost a president his life. It’s not surprising that the majority of the places on my short list are big, old, luxurious hotels in a few key cities. Washington, Chicago and New York are on the list. San Francisco has two. Here’s my collection of must-stay presidential hotels, with a list of also-rans.

CONTRIBUTED

WHEN THE GOING gets hot, the hot get going looking for reduced summer rates at the Mission Inn in Riverside, CA. In its former glory, it was the hotel of choice for Benjamin Harris, William McKinley, William Taft, Warren G. Harding and other presidents.

THE WILLARD, WASHINGTON, D.C.

The nation’s capital is crammed with hotels containing presidential lore. The Hay-Adams near the White House was built on the site of homes of John Adams’ grandson and Abraham Lincoln’s private secretary. Along with introducing air conditioning to the sweltering summer capital, it was used as a fundraising spot related to the Iran-contra affair during President Ronald Reagan’s term. Barack Obama moved in for two weeks before his inauguration when the Bush administration said the usual guest lodging, Blair House, was unavailable. Until recently, another hotel in town was synonymous with political corruption: the Watergate. It’s now just offices and condominiums. But

for a true slice of American history, nothing can beat the Willard. A couple of doors down Pennsylvania Avenue from the White House, it has hosted presidents going back to Zachary Taylor. Lincoln snuck into town after his 1860 election (Washington was basically a Southern town and many in the capital were friendly to the secessionist cause) and used the Willard as his pre-inauguration headquarters. Lincoln’s bill is on display in the hotel’s small museum. But its place in the dictionary was cemented by Ulysses S. Grant, the great Civil War general turned notso-great president. Grant had the habit of making irregular strolls to the Willard to enjoy a cigar. Men seeking to influence legislation or gain political appointments would hang

out, hoping they could elbow their way to the president to make their case. The crowd that loitered in the lobby were dubbed “lobbyists.” The term has stuck for advocates of all types who seek to bend laws and regulations by plying the halls of Congress, the offices on K Street, the party circuit and, yes, occasionally a hotel lobby—including the still-sparkling Willard.

THE BLACKSTONE HOTEL, CHICAGO

No smoking is allowed at the hotel on the south end of downtown Chicago, an ironic policy given that it was plumes of cigar, cigarette and pipe smoke that gave the hotel its place in presidential history. Chicago was a frequent choice for political conventions before World War II, hosting 26.

It was often a choice to keep politics away from the East Coast power centers and also to bring in as many people as possible, with its excellent rail connections to anywhere in the country and huge numbers of hotel rooms. With many of the conventions going on at the old Chicago Coliseum, the Blackstone was frequently the center of the wheeling and dealing that went on in the days before political conventions were a just-for-TV advertisement for each political party. The hotel’s pinnacle came during the 1920 Republican Party convention. On the first ballot, the leader was retired Army Gen. Leonard Wood (the major U.S. Army base in Missouri is named for him) with 287.5 votes. Illinois Gov. Frank Lowden was second with 211.5

votes. The convention at the Coliseum remained deadlocked and the action moved to a group of power brokers who gathered behind closed doors at the Blackstone to horsetrade federal jobs and money for votes. On the 10th ballot, Warren Harding—who had received a scant 65 votes on the first ballot—was proclaimed the nominee. Raymond Clapper, a reporter for the United Press wire service, wrote that the victory had not come on the convention floor, but in the “smoke-filled rooms” of the power brokers. Adding to the mystique, the hotel was a favorite of Chicago mobster Al Capone. The term became synonymous with decisions made out of sight by power brokers. By the end of the past century, the Blackstone had fallen into

The hotel was brand new when the 1906 earthquake struck, sending the most famous opera singer of the day, Enrico Caruso, running into Market Street, reportedly in his bedclothes. The terrified Italian tenor, visiting San Francisco as part of an American tour, vowed never to return. He kept his promise. The hotel was gutted by the fire that raged after the earthquake. Three years later it reopened as the city’s premier hotel address. In 1923, it hosted President Warren G. Harding, the handsome Ohio newspaper publisher whom historians rank with Grant as among the worst presidents in our nation’s history. Harding had been ill with flu-like symptoms when he left for a trip to the Northwest, which included playing golf in Vancouver and making speeches in Seattle. He was scheduled to go to Yosemite, but instead, the weak chief executive was taken to San Francisco and installed in room 8064, a high-floor suite overlooking Market Street and Lotta’s Fountain, a gathering place for survivors of the 1906 earthquake. While his wife was reading to him, Harding passed away, most likely from a heart condition—it’s not completely known, because Mrs. Harding would not allow an autopsy. After decline

MENGER HOTEL, SAN ANTONIO

The Alamo is practically a holy site in Texas, the place where Dav-

ey Crockett, Jim Bowie and a small knot of others held out against a superior force of Mexican troops until they were finally crushed and killed in a bloody siege. Today, the small building sits in the midst of Alamo Plaza, a surprisingly peaceful and leafy part of San Antonio, the seventh largest city in the U.S. with 1.3 million people. The “Texicans”

lost the battle but won the war that saw Texas briefly become an independent country before merging with the United States (and shortly thereafter join the ill-fated slavestate secession by the Confederacy that brought on the Civil War.)

In many cities, different parties tended to hunker down at different hotels. In Los Angeles, Republicans staked out the Century Plaza while Democrats favored the Biltmore downtown. In San Francisco, the Democrats more often stayed at the Fairmont atop Nob Hill, while Republicans preferred the St. Francis, just off Union Square. The St. Francis was part of two dark moments for Republicans— the most famous being the attempted assassination of President Gerald Ford by Sarah Jane Moore randomly aiming a handgun across the street outside of the hotel. Ford survived unscathed, which can’t be said about Charles Evans Hughes, the Republican nominee for president in 1916. In a political route that’s hard to imagine today, the former New York governor left a seat on the Supreme Court to run for president as a Republican. He ran as a Roosevelt-style progressive. Hughes destroyed any chance at success with bad moves while in California. First, he failed to show up for an appointment with California’s progressive governor, Hiram Johnson, a rising national political power broker. Hughes made matters worse by going ahead with a banquet at the St. Francis, despite a strike by the hotel’s unionized kitchen staff. Progressives were appalled and Hughes lost the state and its 13 electoral votes by just over 3,000 votes. It sealed Hughes’ electoral doom and sent Woodrow

President Garret Hobart. A year later, Roosevelt became president when McKinley was assassinated in Buffalo, N.Y., and the rich-boy bureaucrat who remade himself into a tough-talking, risk-taking warrior-politician while staying at the Menger Hotel was on his way to having his face memorialized on Mount Rushmore with Washington, Lincoln and Jefferson.

and I am currently working very hard to become his new best buddy. Singer and songwriter Corey Doak closed the night providing audience members with samples of his latest written tunes on his brand new CD, while a re-united Ten2Nine, led by the dynamic vocals of Pat Brown, opened the evening. In between, the Deb Stone Band reminded Okanagan music fans why she is considered one of Canada’s best kept secrets as she and her team churned out one tremendous tune after another. Most amazing of all for me, however, was to watch and hear Curtis Tulman and his group of fine, classy gentlemen in Cowboy Bob— Bob Verge, Rod Miller and Gary Smyth—step in at the last minute and replace our initial headliners, The Cruzeros, who had to back out after lead singer Barry Mathers badly cut his finger on a table saw. Curtis and crew knocked the musical ball clean out of the park with an entertaining and impressive set of old-time favourites and originals. In addition, further best wishes to comedian Maureen Postnikoff, who also had to withdraw from the show to travel to Vancouver to be with her ailing father. Our prayers are with you and your family Maureen. While the eighth edition of this annual event

provided a number of last minute challenges, as always Tulman, sound man John Adams, the staff of the Kelowna Community Theatre and others all helped pull off yet another wonderful show. Words, no matter how well penned, cannot thank everyone involved enough. And thank you Kelowna for a truly wonderful response and show of community support. ••• Speaking of magical and talent-loaded fundraising concerts, my life-long buddy Jim LeGuilloux is once again hosting his annual Rock4Kids event at Whisky Jacks Pub in West Kelowna. Scheduled for all day Dec.2, the event features outstanding talent and a plethora of great silent auction goodies. The day of talent starts with a Songwriters Circle featuring six acoustic acts—Floyd Vedan, Theresa Bishop, Gary Turlock, Mean Donna, Steve Dreger and the Melish Band. Intermingled with silent auctions will be performances by Leah West, Andrew and Zachari Smith, the always entertaining Zamboni Brothers, The Young’uns, The Ozzy Osmonds, Calum Hughes Collective, Jimmy LeGuilloux Band, The Flu, and headliners for this year—The Odds from Vancouver.

Buick’s 2013 Verano lineup gets a boost Jim Robinson CONTRIBUTOR

THE 2013 BUICK VERANO TURBO model (shown) gives the brand a presence in a mushrooming compact luxury market.

CONTRIBUTED

Even hotter than compact CUVs are a new breed of sedans called “compact luxury” and Buick is moving quickly to meet demand with the Verano. For years Buick was stereotyped as building vehicles catering to seniors—and it was true. But when GM went bust in 2009, out of the reorganization came just four brands, one of which was Buick that got whole new marching orders to attract younger buyers while retained Buick core values of build quality and solid engineering. The first result was the LaCrosse sedan and now the Verano with the Encore compact CUV about to come to market. Younger consumers are aware that the kind of

land yachts Buick used to make just don’t cut it in a world that has recognized environmental responsibility. While these buyers want smaller cars, they also want luxury materials to go with the sports sedan ride and handling plus of rich dollop of electronics/ connectivity. In short, they want image with efficiency. Buick had tried small cars in the past but they were really just econocars with a richer interior and a Buick badge on the grille instead of Chevrolet or Pontiac. While the new Verano shares the “Delta” platform with a few other GM vehicles, today engineers have learned how to make the overall driving experience different from brand

Miata still fun Jim Robinson CONTRIBUTED

A cloudless late autumn sky, 19 degrees C and a red Mazda MX-5 two-seater—does it get better? I have driven a MX-5 every year since the first one bowed in 1989 and it still provides tons of driving enjoyment, as it did the very first time I got behind the wheel. I can honestly say no car has attracted the attention that little Miata did when it first came out. People would just walk up and gaze at it. Kids would give the thumbs up and I will always remember world-renown automotive artist Ken Dallison saying, “that is a proper sportscar”. Like the Porsche 911, the Mazda got it right the first time. In fact, besides dropping the name Miata in favour of MX-5, little has changed over the past 23 years. There is still a small-displacement inline four-cylinder engine mounted longitudinally with rear-drive. When it debuted, the engine was a 116 hp, 1.6-litre. Then it was bumped up to 1.8-litres in 2000 with 140 hp. Today it is 2.0-litres and 167 hp. Imagine, just 400 cc in more than two decades and this, coupled with the low weight, still gives the MX-5 enough power to have fun but not enough to get yourself in trouble. And that’s the beauty of it. You can toss it around, enjoy the proverbial wind in your hair all for under 30 grand. Which brings me to another thing that surprisingly has not changed over the years and that’s the price. Tested here is a box-stock base GX model with five-speed manual transmission priced at $29,145. I tested the same car in the year 2000 with the five-speed and it was priced at $27,145. And when you consider the 2013 MX-5 comes standard with expensive items such as traction control, stability control plus front and side airbags, the price comes out just about even. Now you can add a lot. The GX is the

only model with the five-speed manual. The GS and GT have a six-speed manual or an optional six-speed automatic with paddle shifters but that, in my opinion, defeats the purpose. If you go higher up the Miata feeding chain, there is an optional metal folding top. It is not all that much heavier than the cloth top but, again, it turns the car into a boulevardier. But the cloth top of the current car has evolved. Originally, I could sit in the driver’s seat, reach back, and yank the top up with one hand in true sportscar style. Now it has glass rear window, not vinyl. The glass rear window has an electric defogger which is far better than the plastic one that would go opaque and tear over time. But it weighs more so you have to get out and hoist it up into place secured by a hefty central latch. There is a trunk with 150 litres of cargo volume. You could shoehorn two golf bags if you took the clubs out first, but two-three overnight bags is more like it. Actually I prefer the five-speed. Over the years and after a lot of Miatas in between, I found the third-fourth gear shift on the six-speed sometimes hard to find the correct slot, particularly on the down shift. On the down side, as sweet as the five-speed is, the engine is turning over at 3,000 rpm at 100 km/h. In the flow of expressway traffic (120 km/h) it is up around 3,700 rpm. Ergo, if you do a lot of high speed cruising, the six-speed is the way to go. Even with the five-speed, it still does 0-100 km/h in 8.8 seconds with a top speed of 205 km/h, which is plenty. After 605.2 km over and through some of the best two-lane highways in the country, I think I’d still stay with the five-speed. On most of the highways I travelled,

MAZDA got it right more than two decades ago with the MX-5 (nee Miata) and it still is one of the greatest fun vehicles for the buck you can buy.

A six-speed automatic is standard with both engines but there is a sixspeed manual available on the Turbo only. Both versions are front-drive, but I bet Buick is working on an all-wheel-drive version as we speak because buyers in this segment are gravi-

tating increasingly in that direction. The Verano feels firmly planted and gives off the expected Buick sense of solidity. The Turbo starts almost silently. That’s partly due to the muffled running nature of turbos but largely to Buick’s Quiet-

As this is being written, Mazda is working in concert with Alfa-Romeo on a new small sportscar probably to replace the MX-5. Will it be better? In terms of the latest technology and engineering, undoubtedly. But will it have the same ability to inspire the emotions? I wonder.

due to the engine being as far back as the engineers could place it. Couple that to the drive being just behind your behind, the mass is well in the centre of the four wheels. This translates to the nexus of the mass being just about between the seats, letting the driver get maximum directional stability by feeling he/she is at the fulcrum of any turn. Not only does this make you feel in full control but, with the top down eliminating any blind spots, the little MX-5 just screams “let’s enjoy ourselves”. Which is exactly what I did. Mindful that it was a perfect fall day and the provincial police were out in force, just rolling along taking in the sights, colours and sounds of that surprisingly quiet 2.0-litre engine made for a memorable day. I have to confess I love walking up to the MX-5 with the top down and just plunking myself down fighter pilot style.

THE 2013 BUICK VERANO has a high rear deck lid that helps provide up to 405 litres (14.3 cu ft) of cargo volume. There are two engines offered on the 2013 Verano—a 2.4-litre inline four-cylinder engine producing 180 hp or a twin-scroll turbo (shown) with 250 hp driving the front wheels through a six-speed automatic or six-speed manual transmission.

Verano all about change

Buick from B5

They got rid of tire noise by using three layers -of acoustic insulation material in the doors. The Leather version is fitted with a nine speak-er Bose Premium Sound System, which I could hear a whole lot better gthanks to the all the external noise reduction. When cold, there is a slight lag in acceleration, which goes way as soon as you pass 2,000 rpm. Once heated up, the Turbo responds almost instantly. Part of that is due to the twin scroll technology but also to the turbo intercooler that cools air intake by almost 100 degrees C. The colder the air, the denser the charge and the most power released at ignition. At the dawn of the passenger car turbo era in the mid-1980s, it was not uncommon for the driver to count to three between the time he/she hit the pedal and the power came in. And when it did, it came

in all at once. This “turbo lag” was compounded by “torque steer” which occurred when one half shaft was shorter than the other causing the shorter one to have more grip and track the car off centre, sometimes drastically so. But with experience in superior engineering and the above is just a bad memory for those of us who experienced it. The Verano Turbo launches nicely off the line with standard traction control and stability control doing their part, resulting in no wheel spin or crabbing to the left or right. At highway speeds the Turbo comes into play immediately for passing or lane changes with no drama and, again, very little noise. One of the surprises is the amount of trunk space at 405 litres or 396 litres if you have the top Bose sound. With the normal and turbo engines and an eAssist mild hybrid ver-

sion expected by mid next year, the Verano is not your father’s Buick. As I said last year, Buick is literally on the road to changing how people think about the brand.

In Loving Memory

Dean Wesley Smith Sept, 26 1963 - Nov 23, 2009 You were the rock that held us all together it will never be the same, now that you’re gone we wish we could have had you forever  You were our foundation which always stood strong, the one person in our lives we all knew we could depend on You taught us life's great lessons too to live, to love, and to laugh just to name a few You left in such a hurry, didn't say good-bye to live each day thinking of you  we sit here and cry It's been 3 years since that tragic day  never will be forgotten in our hearts you'll forever stay Love always, Megan, Brandi, Lacey, Grandchildren and Family 

In Loving Memory of Jason Ricciuti May 13, 1987 Nov, 24, 2002

Jason, It’s with a heavy heart, I raise my pen again. Another year without you, now it equals ten. Somehow I keep on living, broken heart and all. I know you’re here supporting me, you won’t let me fall. I miss you Buddy. I’m a decade nearer to being with you again! I love you,

Mom

Norman Francis Dalgleish

December 29, 1933 - November 13, 2012 Beloved father and grandfather Norman Francis Dalgleish passed away peacefully November 13 after a long battle with health issues. He is survived by his three children Patricia Dalgleish, of Sechelt and Raymond Dalgleish (Leane) and Robert Dalgleish (Christine) of Prince George, and grandchildren David, Jennifer, Rae-Ann, Victoria, Sarah, Colin, Kory, Kiley, Mackenzie and Rudi, as well as six great-grandchildren. He will be greatly missed by all. The family will hold a celebration to honour his life at his favourite fishing spot, Francois Lake, next summer. Donations to Heart & Stroke, Cancer Society and Kidney Foundation would be greatly appreciated.

BOHN, ANNA Just as she loved her family, Anna’s mournful family lovingly commends her to the Lord. Less than a month after the passing of Peter, her beloved husband of 65 years, Anna, 86, passed away suddenly at home in Kelowna, BC on November 20, 2012. Born June 17, 1926, in Burstall, Saskatchewan, Anna moved to the Okanagan when she was 16, where she met Peter. Anna and Peter were married on April 15, 1947 and for the duration of their marriage, working hand in hand, they complimented each other with their individual personalities and gifts. Anna loved her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren immensely. The walls in her home are a gallery of family photographs, so she could have her beloved ones close to her always. A gifted homemaker, Anna also loved music. She was a talented seamstress; she also knitted and crocheted, which were among the many hobbies she taught to her family. Anna’s greatest talent, and greatest legacy, however, was her passion for food and cooking. She experienced joy in preparing wonderful meals for family and friends. Her hospitality was beyond compare and everyone left the family home well fed and happy. She inspired her children to share in her passion for cooking. Anna is survived by: daughters Judy Meier (Philip), of Kelowna; Donna Bohn, of Calgary; Debbie Galinski (Paul), of Powell River, BC; son James Bohn, of Kelowna; grandchildren Daphne; Greg (Kellie); Jason (Christine); Christine (Steve), Devan and Shaylee; great-grandchildren Karrson, Keaton, Ava, Cameron, Cassidy and Neviah. She was predeceased by her parents Nicholas and Mary Bosch and is survived by brothers and sisters Don (Val) Bosch, Roy Bosch, Paul Bosch, Barb Galloway, Angela Scott and Eleanor Gatzke. Prayers will be recited on Sunday, November 25, at 7:00 pm and a Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Monday, November 26, at 10:30 am at Immaculate Conception Catholic Church, 839 Sutherland Avenue, Kelowna, BC. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Canadian Diabetes Association, 1589 Sutherland Ave, Kelowna, BC, V1Y 5Y7, (250) 762-9447. Condolences may be sent to the family by visiting www.springfieldfuneralhome.com

Home security tools enhanced According to experts in the home security industry, the latest trend for homeowners is a fully interactive security system. Imagine the convenience of disarming your alarm system while sitting in your driveway, or checking in on your pet or teenagers while you’re out of town? One such system is that produced by Reliance Protectron’s new interactive servicesthrough www.myprotectron.com. In addition to Protectron’s state-of-the-art monitoring services, with the cutting-edge colour touch-screen interactive Go Control system or other comparable technology, you can monitor your system from anywhere

via the web or your smartphone, including arming and disarming it remotely, says Patrice De Luca, vice-president of marketing and business development for Reliance Protectron Security Services. “Its powerful functionalities make this the most advanced home-security technology available.” The myprotectron. com interactive home security services lets you have full control over your system with a wealth of monitoring tools. For example, you can get real-time updates on doors and windows, watch live and recorded video feeds, and review “event histories” for when your kids get home from school or when cleaning or maintenance crews

The Lakes has much to offer

N CONTRIBUTED

INTERACTIVE security systems offer a wealth of monitoring tools in which to keep an eye on your home when you are away. come and go. You can even receive live weather reports 24/7 to gauge if an increase in home temperature is required from your integrated energy management system. All this control is accessible by logging in to your myprotectron.com account from your per-

sonal computer, BlackBerry, Android, iPhone app or any web-enabled device. The Go Control system requires no landline or Internet connection. Instead, the signal from your security system travels wirelessly using a dedicated, encrypted and secure connection. When

trouble strikes, it interacts with Protectron’s monitoring centres to send out an immediate response. So unlike traditional security alarm systems that rely on a telephone line, it works in every home and can’t be defeated by a burglar snipping or tampering with the wire.

Home buying process insights for first-time buyers As we see with most first-time home buyers, there are a lot of questions that go along with the process of buying a home. Mortgage brokers can be a big help to steer clients through that process, and it doesn’t cost you a cent as the lenders pay the cost to get the mortgage business. To start with, first-time buyers can get pre-approval on a mortgage before you start shopping for a home. Once an offer has been made, there is generally a one to two week period to remove subjects on the sale—such as home inspection, financing, etc.—before the deal is confirmed. Once those subjects have been satisfied, a non-refundable deposit must be placed on the property. This deposit will form

a portion of your ultimate down payment, but is intended to be security for the seller that the buyer is committed to seeing the deal through. First-time buyers will be exempt from paying the property transfer tax. If the fair market value of the property is less than $425,000 you are not required to pay this tax. Otherwise, the tax works out to 1% of the first $200,000 and 2% on the balance over 200,000. As for the HST, it is charged against new homes only. Depending on the lender and how much money you have for a down payment, an appraisal of the property may be required, which will cost between $250 and $350. Buyers also need to secure

the services of a lawyer or notary public to handle the legal aspects of a real estate transaction. Be prepared for a legal bill in the area of $1,000. There will also be a property tax adjustment that is calculated by your lawyer. The seller is responsible for the property taxes while they lived in the home. If you purchase prior to July 1, the buyer will be credited the amount due by the seller and you will be responsible for paying the entire tax bill on July 1. If you purchase after July 1, the seller will have paid the property taxes and the buyer will be charged for the months of that year you will own the home. For home financing, if it’s more than 80% of the property value or a less than 20%

down payment, the property will have to be insured as a high ratio mortgage by the lender through CMHC, Genworth or AIG, and that insurance premium will be added to the mortgage. This is an insurance for the lender in the event of a default on your mortgage. The percentage you pay will vary depending on how much money you have down. Typical fees range from 1.75% to 3.15% of the mortgage amount.

estled between Okanagan Lake, Wood Lake and Kalamalka Lake is where you can find The Lakes development. It’s only fitting that this development not be called anything else but The Lakes. Located in Lake Country, this first-rate community offers a unique charm all on its own. “This is a great comREAL ESTATE munity to raise a family, RUNDOWN it has a nice quaint ‘country’ feel and the great part about it is that it is engulfed by our Okanagan lakes,” said Re/Max real agent Jennifer Ceinwen estate Black. Morgan The Lakes consists of 300 acres that offer building lots that are available starting at $150,000 and up. Another great aspect of this development is that it also allows for the purchaser of a lot to bring their own builder. Also available are a variety of already built quality single-family homes and multi-family dwellings with either stunning lake, mountain or valley views to enjoy year-round. This newer family subdivision offers convenient location to shopping, restaurants, schools and has an abundance of park land near-by with a number of hiking trails available. You can also find several different golf courses and wineries near by such as Predator Ridge Golf Course and renowned Grey Monk Winery. The best of both words is evident at The Lakes—the serenity just out your door step and you are only just a short drive away southbound to the heart of downtown Kelowna or northbound to Vernon. “You should really come and see what The Lakes development has to offer, you will not be disappointed,” added Tim Stanfield, also with Re/Max. With confidence, Black and Stanfield currently market a newly built quality single family home in The Lakes development and both can agree that this up and coming neighbourhood is something to be desired. Realtors from Re/Max Kelowna, Century 21, MacDonald Realty and Royal LePage are teaming up this weekend to showcase this popular development. The featured properties range in styles from popular rancher walkout, two storey and grade level entry single family homes. This Saturday, Nov. 24, between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m., come on down and view the craftsmanship of these magnificent homes. Turn on Oceola Road off of Highway 97 at the Super Save Gas station intersection located in Lake Country. Snacks and refreshments will be offered as will a ride aboard the Re/Max hot air balloon. Ceinwen Morgan has worked in the Kelowna real estate industry for the past five years.
