SEX OFFENDER DENIES ASSAULT Kristi Patton

Western News Staff

A starkly different picture was painted by the man accused of sexually assaulting a Penticton woman in Okanagan Falls than what she presented in court last week. Ronald Teneycke, who is a convicted sex offender, took the stand after the Crown rested its case on Monday in Penticton Supreme Court. During his testimony, Teneycke said he did not have any intentions of having sex with a woman hitchhiker who he picked up near the Penticton airport on July 31, 2011. Even when kissing progressed into more intimate contact. “I am more the kind of cuddly type person. I enjoy that more,” said Teneycke. He said their sexual activity was consensual and it was the woman, who cannot be named due to a publication ban, who had ini-

tiated an attraction almost as soon as he met her. Teneycke said the woman smelled of beer when she got into his Cadillac. “She asked me to consider giving her a ride to Keremeos … she said she was into S&M and was such a horny girl,” said Teneycke. He said she touched his long hair, told him he was handsome and asked if he had a girlfriend. She then asked if he wanted oral sex performed on him. “I said you really are a horny girl or you just really want to get to Keremeos,” said Teneycke. It wasn’t until he neared the Kaleden junction that Teneycke said he decided he would give the woman a ride to Keremeos where she told him she was looking to exchange jewelry for drugs. They eventually found themselves on Oliver Ranch Road and then drove onto forest service road 201 upon her directions to a swimming area.

car and used them with the woman. He said he then decided to leave because it was getting close to 11 p.m. and he was “grounded.” Teneycke said he had to go back to the abandoned building to retrieve a windbreaker left behind and then he took the woman to his mother’s house where he introduced the two. He recalled his mom went to bed and the woman kept talking about needing to get more cocaine and beer and eventually left. Crown counsel John Swanson questioned Teneycke why he would continue to engage sexually with the woman if he knew he wasn’t going to be gratified by it, especially if the woman wasn’t his type as he testified to. Teneycke said he couldn’t recall what was going through his mind. Defence is also expected to be calling Teneycke’s mother to testify before closing arguments are given.

Teneycke said they began walking to the water when she veered off and sat at the doorway of an abandoned building stating she was tired. He said it was a “natural thing” that it progressed when she leaned her head on his shoulder, he put his arm around her and they began kissing. He said the woman laid a blanket down and they began engaging in “foreplay.” He said he couldn’t get an erection and when she asked if he wanted oral sex, Teneycke said he was embarrassed to tell her he had an STD. “I wanted to avoid talking about it so I said I have sex toys in the car,” said Teneycke. He told the court all of his girlfriends always just wanted to have sex and he wasn’t into that. When he found sex toys in a box belonging to his most recent girlfriend, who he met on the Internet, Teneycke said it “destroyed the relationship.” Teneycke said he retrieved those from the

West Bench park pays tribute to veterans Joe Fries Western News Staff

War veterans who helped settle a neighbourhood just outside Penticton city limits are now permanent guests of honour in a community park there. They’re recognized in the new fixtures added to Selby Park on the West Bench, which was settled following the Second World War when soldiers were helped by the Veterans’ Land Act to buy property and establish themselves. West Bench residents gathered Saturday to get their first look at the newly redesigned park, the focal point of which is a large table topped with metal plating that’s cut into the design of a map that depicts the original VLA subdivision. A bronze plaque will be installed nearby that will list the name of the veteran originally associated with each lot. Architects Chris Allen and Cal Meiklejohn both live in the area and teamed up on the design. Allen said the work, which was guided by community consultation, began in earnest last November when a $25,000 grant was secured from Veterans Affairs Canada. “To do something that gives back to the neighbourhood, tells a bit of the story of why the neigh-

bourhood’s here and how it developed is very rewarding,” Allen said. Besides the map table, a new wheelchair-accessible pathway and yellow, cut-steel sculpture were

also added. The sculpture is a nod to the idea of families and the impact war had on them. Many veterans, Allen explained, returned from war in their mid-20s and had little

education or work experience to fall back on in civilian life. “That’s very difficult, and I can understand what it meant to them to be able to get a lot and build a house

and start a family and start a real life after that momentous event in their life. It’s nice to be able to tell that story,” he said. Concrete specialist Jesse Chapman spent three weeks with his crew on the Selby Park project and said it’s some of the most rewarding work he’s ever done. “It was really neat working in this community because lots of people would come by and sort of ask us what we were doing and they were all really positive about what we were doing,” Chapman said. “Some veterans would stop by and gives us a thumbs-up. Everybody in the community was really happy about it, so it was a feel-good project.” Bob Jenkins, who served in the navy during the Second World War, arrived on the West Bench in 1963 after spending 20 years in the mining sector up north. “I was one of the last ones to claim a lot,” he said. “There were only three lots left on the whole West Bench.” Jenkins, whose daughter Sue Gibbons spearheaded the Selby Park upgrade, still lives on the halfacre lot and was pleased with the redesigned gathering place. “It helps to maintain people’s understanding,” Jenkins said. “Their remembrance, anyway.”

Killer won’t be eligible for parole until 2020 Kristi Patton Western News Staff

It will be at least another seven years before the man who received a lifetime sentence for killing a Penticton senior will be eligible for parole. “This will result in Mr. (Corey) Swite being imprisoned even beyond the period of parole ineligibility until the parole board is satisfied he can be safely released into the community,” said Justice Ian Josephson during sentencing in Kelowna Supreme Court on Friday. Swite, who was 20 years old at the time of his arrest, had been found guilty by a jury for first-degree murder of Olive Hill in 2009. An appeal was put forward, and in June of this year the decision was overturned because of the possible bias of jurors. During his retrial this month, Swite pled guilty to the lesser offence of seconddegree murder. He has been in jail for five years, making him eligible to apply for parole in 2020.

It was in the early morning hours of Aug. 3, 2006 that an intoxicated Swite entered the apartment building of the 85-year-old. He opened the sliding glass patio door that she had left open to permit her cat to enter and leave the apartment at will, and began searching for cigarettes and cash. During the search, Hill woke up and Swite pushed her to the bed, placed a pillow over her head and sat on her. The force caused her to die of asphyxiation after five minutes. Swite continued to ransack the residence after her death and came across a condom that the senior had been given as a gag prize from a club she belongs to. He used it to sexually assault Hill’s body. Swite, who was arrested in February of 2007, was sentenced to life and will not be eligible to apply for parole until February of 2020. According to Crown counsel, that application process takes a minimum of six months and more likely two years before the parole board would make their decision.

“I think it was the right result. The judge is a very experienced criminal law judge and he had some very difficult issues to have to resolve and I anticipated a sentence pretty close to the sentence he imposed,” said Bruneau, who had asked for a 15-year parole ineligibility. Crown counsel said he has been in contact with the victim’s granddaughter in California during the appeal and re-trial. Bruneau said the family was having a difficult time with the process and they wrote “moving” victim impact statements that were read by Justice Josephson. The only thing that could be appealed by Swite now is the length of the parole and Bruneau said he would be “very surprised” if that was to happen. “It was a horrendous attack, but in all of those circumstances including his Aboriginal heritage, I think 13 years is pretty much right on,” added Bruneau. Swite had little in the way of formal education and had been raised by his grandparents, as

his own parents were incapable of doing so because of substance abuse. His spiral into a perilous lifestyle continued when he had been victim to a violent stabbing and when his mother died in her early 30s due to substance abuse. Just over a year later, Swite witnessed at close hand the alcohol-induced shooting of three friends and relatives by his cousin, Dustin Paul, at a bush party on the Penticton Indian Reserve. Defence counsel Kevin McCullough told the court Swite has gone through a “positive transition while incarcerated.” McCullough said his client is anxious to return to the roots of his First Nations culture and has re-bonded with his father, who was present throughout most of the court hearings. Justice Josephson, who was the judge in the trial of the bombing of Air India Flight 182, said in his reasons for sentencing that he requests Swite be offered some culturally appropriate programs wile incarcerated and it is his hope he can continue on the path of sobriety.

Katie knows first-hand how important the right support is at the right time. Katie was born with spina bifida, a birth defect affecting her spinal cord. Her personal experience spurred her on to a career working with kids with disabilities and volunteering with United Way. United Way supports healthy people, strong communities.

It’s the kind of spending that makes some taxpayers cringe, but Jon Summerland does bring a solid economic argument to his defence. The head of the Okanagan Film Commission appeared last week at a Regional District of Okanagan-Similkameen budget workshop in Penticton, where he asked directors to up their yearly contribution by $6,000 to $30,000, money he said will be multiplied many times over by film productions that he’ll attract to the area. His presentation included photos of a group from France he took out on an aerial tour of the region earlier this year to scout for locations for a film called, The Young and Prodigious Spivet. “This is where your money’s going: I got a helicopter to show these guys around. I was given four hours to show them the Okanagan, so I put them in a helicopter,” said Summerland, adding the group was also treated to lunch at a winery restaurant. The movie, written and directed by French filmmaker Jean-Pierre Jeunet and due out in 2013, was eventually shot mainly in the Alberta Rockies, although the Okanagan was chosen to provide the location for a scene that required railroad tracks. “But still it was a great investment,” Summerland said. “It was high-rolling, but they’re telling their French director friends and they’re coming back. It was an investment.”

Even with outlays for helicopters and lunches, the commission still managed to pay for itself, according to Summerland’s numbers. He said about $8 million was spent on film production in the region in 2012, while the commission itself had expenses of $201,500. With expenditures at animation studios in Kelowna thrown into the mix, the production total was $27.6 million. “We’re growing. We need the continued support. I know your budgets are tight, but it would be great if we could get up to $30,000,” Summerland said. The additional $6,000 would equal “a lot of scouting,” he added, “because at this point I’m spending more (in the region) than I get from the RDOS.” Andrew Jakubeit, who represents the RDOS on the film commission’s board, said he would urge fellow directors to find the extra funds. “Last year was by far a banner year. We had more productions in our area than ever before,” he said. “That all happens from a film commission being aggressive.” Jakubeit said the region’s most valuable shoot last year was a film about the Stanley Cup that was created for the Hockey Hall of Fame and left behind about $1.2 million in Penticton and Summerland. Next on the list was a Bollywood movie shot in Osoyoos that was worth about $500,000 to the local economy. That economic activity alone represents “a significant return” on the RDOS investment in the film commission, Jakubeit said.

Budget process on stream The City of Penticton is making 2013 budget deliberations a social affair, inviting citizens and stakeholders to engage in presentations through social media. “The City of Penticton budget deliberations have become a more open and transparent process and we want increased public input. The city has been expanding our efforts in citizen outreach and engagement,” said Mayor Dan Ashton. “We invite all citizens to take part either in person or through new technology.” Annual budget deliberations for the municipality take multiple days to go through, and cover a wide array of spending decisions in both operating and capital budgets. Public input and feedback during the presentations are important, and time will be set aside each day to allow citizens and stakeholders to ask questions, provide comments and give suggestions. Accommodations are being made to allow those whose schedules don’t permit daytime meetings to engage in the process. All budget meetings will be streamed live on the city’s website: www.penticton.ca/live-video. Also, city staff will be monitoring Twitter on the city’s @cityofpenticton account. Citizens can use the hashtag #penbudget13 to provide comments, suggestions and questions. These will be presented to council verbally, and responses will be provided directly back to the original poster as quickly as possible. The 2013 budget meeting schedule is as follows: Thursday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.: operational budget; Friday from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.: operational budget and grants; Dec. 7 from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.: utilities operating budgets and capital budgets. A special meeting of council will be held at 9 a.m. on Dec. 13 to give first three readings of the budget bylaw. Final adoption of the 2013 budget bylaw is scheduled for Dec. 17 during the regular meeting of council. All meetings are scheduled to take place in council chambers in City Hall.

Safety a key factor for a happy holiday

W

e might be quickly closing in on the most wonderful time of the year, but with our dark and slippery roads, it is also one of the most dangerous. As the Christmas season approaches, we find ourselves hustling in all directions. Normal work and family obligations become more complicated with the need to shop for presents and attend social events. Everything speeds up. Unfortunately, it is at a time when our roadways become the most dangerous. In dark and often slippery conditions, it is virtually impossible to see that pedestrian crossing the street in a marked crosswalk, or that cyclist moving toward you as you try to make a left-hand turn, or that deer running out from the ravine. But steps can be taken to not only be safer on the roads, but to also reduce the stress level of people on the move. Driving the speed limit is a good start. At 50 km/h, drivers can often react in time to a avoid an unexpected cyclist, pedestrian or animal. Making sure your tires are up to the job of winter driving also helps. Cyclists can reduce their risk by ensuring they are visible, and are in a position where drivers can see them by riding in a predictable manner. Even pedestrians can reduce accidents by crossing the street only when it is certain that drivers in both directions are aware of their intentions. Making smart decisions, like planning efPENTICTON WESTERN fectively and not drinking and driving, can also reduce risk and stress. The Christmas season is a busy one in the Okanagan, but with a little care and attention to how we move around, we can ensure that everybody makes it home safely to enjoy the festivities.

Poverty of politics continues B.C.’s ritual day of shame over child poverty has come and gone once again, with politicians trading blame and timeworn talking points. The occasion was an annual gathering staged at the B.C. Teachers’ Federation office in downtown Vancouver. It is organized by First Call, an umbrella group sponsored by the BCTF, the B.C. Government Employees’ Union and a collection of like-minded “anti-poverty activists,” as they describe themselves in their latest report. The familiar script unfolded. The report misinterprets federal income statistics from two years ago and calls for a long list of uncosted, but hugely expensive measures that they assert will make B.C. the first jurisdiction in human history to eradicate poverty. A sampling: provide raises for employees and contractors at all levels of government until they are making an unspecified “living wage,” because we all know how public-sector workers uniquely suffer from pay and pension inequality. Raise the minimum wage again and index it to inflation. Establish universal public dental care, prescription drug and eye care programs, and day

B.C. Views care. (Dismiss targeted programs that already provide this.) Raise welfare rates and expand eligibility for employment insurance. Cut tuition and provide more student grants. Eliminate homelessness. And so it continues toward a socialist Utopia and certain bankruptcy for provincial and federal governments already deeply in the red. I wrote about these numbers when Statistics Canada released them back in June. They showed a modest improvement nationally and provincially in what they measure, which is not poverty, but the relative relationship between income groups. First Call dismisses

that improvement as “a dismal record.” My point is not to deny that there are many poor people in B.C. and Canada. There are. But at this point we don’t even have a reliable way of measuring the problem, let alone effective solutions. The report states: “Statistics Canada said the child poverty rate in Greater Vancouver was 18.4 per cent in 2010 …” No, Statistics Canada didn’t say that. They said what they always say, that “Low-Income Cut-Off,” or LICO figures, are not an accurate measure of poverty. The political response was equally predictable. Veteran NDP MP Libby Davies led the charge in Ottawa. The government must establish a national anti-poverty strategy with firm annual goals, she said, reciting the identical script of the B.C. NDP. Davies didn’t mention that Manitoba is among the provinces with such a plan. It’s the only province that finished below B.C. in the percentage of children living in low-income homes. These plans are mainly gesture politics, providing the appearance of action. Social Development Minister Stephanie Cadieux spoke on

behalf of the B.C. Liberal government, and she, too, stuck to a familiar script. The best path out of poverty is a job, she said. This is true, but also obvious. Then Cadieux went on about the “B.C. Jobs Plan,” which has its own sorry record of misrepresented federal statistics. Here’s one of the report’s more blindingly obvious section headings: “Child poverty concentrated in big cities.” No kidding. The whole population is concentrated in big cities. Herein lies a clue that is missed by “activists” for everlarger government. Poor people are increasingly crowded into the most expensive places. If I’m on welfare or working in a low-wage job and receiving a provincial rent subsidy (one of those things LICO doesn’t measure), should I live in downtown Victoria or Vancouver? Shouldn’t I relocate to a smaller community where housing is cheaper? There are lots of complications to this, but some kind of incentive to relocate could help big and small communities.

Growth strategy ignored Through the mid-’90s, I chaired the initial growth strategy committee with the intent of developing a valley-wide strategy. It was implemented for the protection of the valley’s ecological system and its overall environment, air and water specifically. I was successful on behalf of the Regional District of OkanaganSimilkameen to have negotiated the planning and the cost of the plan to have it endorsed by the Central and the North Okanagan regional districts. Only to have the board of the RDOS vote against the implementation (1995/96) of the collective valley-wide growth plan. Fortunately a southern growth strategy was brought back to the RDOS board again and subsequently endorsed in 2000. Now we have a plan for just the south end of the valley which cost the RDOS $400,000 to put together. (The City of Penticton paid 40 per cent of the bill.) It was unanimously endorsed by the board (with the exception of the Similkameen directors who opted not to join). After being endorsed by a unanimous vote of the remaining directors, it was declared as a document that we must live by. The intent of the southern growth plan was to protect the environment by controlling overall growth just from Peachland to the U.S. border. This would be achieved by strictly adhering and not deviating from the regional growth strategy. Just this month this whole process, which took almost 10 years to complete at a known cost of $400,000, was literally thrown aside by a majority of the directors on the board. I refer to the majority approval of a devel-

The ladies of Faith Rebekah Lodge would like to thank everyone who attended their very successful fall tea and bazaar held at the IOOF hall on Nov. 17.

The said majority included the chair (Mayor Ashton, as chair you are bound to uphold the policies and practices endorsed by the board of directors, and councillors which you have been elected to chair). The report in the local media on the Vaseux Lake application recorded the chair’s statement in favour of the application to proceed, saying that the growth strategy was just a document: “Thou shalt make you think.” It seems the chair wasn’t thinking about the whole costly purpose why the growth strategy was unanimously implemented under his chairmanship. The chair was also noted to make a comment to the issue of planning, to the effect that any owner of a property should be entitled to do what they want with their property (not verbatim). If this statement is true, then why have costly rules and regulations of planning and zoning, let’s just let everybody build shacks and multi-storey highrises to destroy what we’re all trying to protect since the city was founded. The goal was to control the overall growth of our community, protect property and their values from unsightly and conflicting structures next to them and in more recent years protect the environment and our way of life. That’s why these regulations were put into place and should be endorsed and enforced by the people we elect to do it for us.

Tale of two cities

The process of incorporation in this province leaves me a bit confused. Jumbo Glacier Ski Resort, a non-existent ski resort, population zero, receives resort municipality status from the B.C. government, with an appointed mayor, two councillors and a salaried financial officer. Meanwhile, Okanagan Falls, a community in existence since the 1890s, population 2,000-3,000, which has been investigating incorporation since 2008, cannot get approval from the government for funding to study the possibility of incorporation.

Joe Fries Western News Staff

Insomniacs might be disappointed to learn a local government has decided against broadcasting its meetings on the Internet. The idea faded to black Thursday during a budget workshop at the Regional District of OkanaganSimilkameen in which directors rejected a staff report that estimated it would cost $55,000 to buy the necessary equipment to make meetings available online. “I’m not saying anything surprising, but a lot of what we talk about is pretty dry,” said Naramata Director Karla Kozakevich. “It might be good to air at night to put people to sleep.” Kozakevich was among the directors who noted they’d had no requests from constituents to stream the meetings.

“We often say they don’t know we’re here, so I question whether they’re even going to find a webcast or station on TV to watch it,” she said, adding a scaled-down trial might be more appropriate. “We have some hot-topic issues. Could we not video that ourselves and run it on the RDOS website as a starting point and see what interest that develops?” West Bench Director Michael Brydon noted that sparse attendance at public meetings is also likely a good gauge of people’s disinterest in meeting webcasts. “It would be different if this room was full of people trying to get in, who actually care what’s going on here,” he said. “I think we need people kicking down the door saying, ‘You must webcast,’ before we do this.” Andrew Jakubeit, a Penticton city councillor and RDOS director, told colleagues that he runs a video production company and the $55,000 cost estimate could easily be trimmed down. And further, Jakubeit said, there’s probably more value in making recordings of meetings available online than there is in streaming them. Archiving the meetings, he continued, would allow people to view items of local concern at their leisure. “Whether we have 10 people or 100 people watching the stream during the day is irrelevant,” he said. “The bigger thing is that video piece that they can watch much later and see what was said.” Osoyoos Mayor Stu Wells, also an RDOS director, had advocated at previous meetings for webcasts to raise awareness of the regional government and the work it does. “Probably the reason people are not knocking down the doors is they don’t know we’re here,” Wells said. “But we can just sit here like mushrooms and keep the low profile that we have and keep surveying people, find out what they feel about us or whatever those things are that we do.” Directors voted against discussing webcasting further during budget deliberations, but will include a question about it in the next RDOS citizens’ survey. The board did, however, keep alive a few other items for further budget discussion. A $10,000 request for additional staff time to deal with the regional sign problem did gain preliminary approval. The board heard that cash could be used to tackle 40 files related to signs on private property that contravene local bylaws. The RDOS Enterprise Unit, which generates revenue through the supply of services such as information technology and human resource management to member municipalities and the public, got approval to carry on with its request for $31,980 for additional staffing. A $50,000 budget add-on for economic development also made the cut.

Analogue resurrected at art gallery exhibit Kristi Patton

Western News Staff

Resurrecting a synth sound, the Penticton Art Gallery will be full of ambient music this weekend. Analogue synth wizards and guitar space wash rock clash with experimental film displays in Sonic Sights: an evening of analogue mastery and video presentations in the next chapter of The End Of The World As We Know It exhibit which will run Nov. 30 to Dec. 2. “I think that it is particularly suiting actually because a lot of the music that the three artists make could be construed as quite apocalyptic,” said Tom Reimer, who is a musician in Rainboard and helped organize the performers for the weekend. “It’s very heavy and very epic sounding. I think it really falls into the whole idea of the 2012 end of the world theme. We haven’t intended it to be that way, but the music does dawn that kind of emotion out of people.” Reimer said he combines his

sounds with visuals, an integral part of the music. “The visuals have been very much a part of the music and viceversa. It creates a more powerful experience for the audience. It is a context that wouldn’t be there without one another, without one or the other, the audience would be lost,” said Reimer. Rainboard will be performing on Friday at an all-ages event along with Sinoia Caves and Magnetic Ring. Josh Stevenson plays two EMS Synthi’s in Magnetic Ring, considered highly sought after instruments by that type of musician. “It is really amazing to see him play because a lot of the time it is a very improvised type of performance meaning every single performance is completely different from the last one,” said Reimer. Stevenson originally bought three of the EMS Synthi’s and sold one to Aphex Twin, an influential electronic dance music artist. “So you can understand the level of these synth’s, that is how

ROBINSON

highly sought after they are. They are going to electronic musicians who are at the top of their game,” said Reimer. “To even just own one of these synth’s is one thing, but for Josh to be able to perform live regularly with them and have such control over it is really amazing. It is so modular that it is not like a keyboard at all, it is very much a sound-making device that is like a math equation to make it work.” Sinoia Caves is the solo project from artist Jeremy Schmidt who also plays in a Vancouver-based band called Black Mountain. He re-released The Enchanter Persuaded earlier this year, with slight remastering of his ambient psychedelic sounds. Short films by Shayne Ehman, Seth Scrivens and Reimer will also be shown. Scriber is a master filmmaker and many of his animations were shown on regular rotation as shorts on MTV. Workshops will be held noon to 4 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.

Chiropractor offers free clinic Steve Kidd

250-492-5144

Western News Staff

We take used Computers, TV’s, Printers, Fax Machines, Scanners, Keyboards and Paint Cans.

A Penticton chiropractor is once again offering his services at a free clinic for seniors

and low-income community members. Inspired by a series of free dental clinics for low-income members of the community, Dr. Adam Konanz offered

his first free clinic last April with the help of Greta Henning, the organizer of the dental clinics. Again, with Henning’s aid, Konanz has

decided to offer another on Saturday, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Cheers Church at 639 Main St. Konanz was involved as far back as the first clinic in August 2011, offering his portable chiropractic tables as operating tables for the clinic. Henning, a public health worker, began organizing the clinics as a way to help the people who fell between the cracks, unable to access regular dental clinic. There have been several more since that first, and Henning is now working towards creating a permanent clinic. This chiropractic

clinic will be operated on a drop-in basis, with Konanz offering minor adjustments and general consultations for people wondering how they can be helped by his services. Henning has also arranged another free dental clinic, this time in Summerland on Dec. 7. However, the appointment slots for that day have already been filled, but she encourages people to continue to put in applications for treatment, if they have pain or infection and don’t already have a dentist on record. Low-income adults or seniors can submit their applications either at the Salvation Army Food Bank or the Ooknakane Friendship Centre at 146 Ellis St. Henning can be reached at 250-4939299 if community members have any questions about how to help with the ongoing dental clinics or her drive to create a permanent free clinic.

youth play active role in Summerland Kristi Patton Western News Staff

Small town and nothing to do, it’s not a new complaint from youth. One group in Summerland is focusing on relieving that boredom by providing youth with opportunities to get involved in their community, and by doing so they also have help prevent crime. Summerland Asset Development Initiative was asked to present at the B.C. Crime Prevention Symposium in Burnaby earlier this month and speak about how they use asset building to help reduce criminal activity in Summerland. “I think that SADI has been so successful in Summerland because we are such a small town. There’s not much to do here and we finally have a place to interact with each other and people who are there for us no matter what,” said 15-year-old Haley Smed, a youth representative for SADI who spoke at the symposium. “The whole community has felt the impact it’s made and it has become one of the most important places in our community. It has made the youth more morally responsible in ways that we don’t even realize.” SADI provides activities, resources and support for Summerland youth and families. The development assets are characteristics that young people need to develop positive values and become more caring and responsible. The more assets they have, SADI believes the less likely they are to engage in high-risk behaviours. “It has made an impact with the youth in Summerland by giving them a place to go and people to talk to when they feel like they don’t have anyone to talk to or a place to call their own. It has given us a better reputation in our community and the adults have more respect and understanding for who we are and what we believe in,” said Smed. One of the 40 development assets they promote is constructive use of time. SADI provides youth with the opportunity to develop leadership skills and make posi-

tive connections through volunteering initiatives like baking muffins for the school breakfast club, working side-by-side with seniors on woodworking projects and baking projects to donate to Christmas hampers. “The more youth are involved, the more they will respect the community and won’t want to damage the community. The more assets youth have the more respect they have for themselves and aspire to reach for higher goals and do something with their lives,” said Laceydawn Loepkpy, youth activities co-ordinator at SADI. RCMP Sgt. Mona Kauffeld said the program has been a very positive influence on the community. “I think anytime you keep kids active and engaged with things to do on their spare time you are going to find you have kids that are busy, not out on the streets and not coming up with mischief, vandalism or ideas that are not good. This program gives them a place to go, good role models and Summerland is very lucky to have such a successful program,” said Kauffeld.

Bienvenue

Jack Frost is bound to turn up eventually in Penticton and at least one non-profit is trying to make sure the less fortunate will be ready when winter-like temperatures finally arrive. To help, Greg Litwin has been stockpiling donated blankets, toques, socks and other cold-weather gear in his downtown office. The items will be handed out Dec. 17 at the Soupateria.

Litwin, a notary public who also sits on the soup kitchen’s board of directors, started the Cover with Kindness blanket drive three years ago and has seen the community’s goodwill grow along with it. “The generosity was so great last year that the gifts kept coming” even after the hand-out date, Litwin said. “Finally I had to say, ‘OK, guys, enough. Let’s save some for next year.’” The 2011 edition brought in 50 pairs of

mitts and gloves, 25 scarves, 16 toques, 77 coats, 50 blankets and 10 sleeping bags. The 2012 drive kicked off with the donation of 10 hand-knit blankets from a local man who told Litwin’s staff he knits all year and then donates his work to charity. “He decided to give them to us this year which is really, really nice. Some of those blankets are beautiful,” Litwin said. While blankets continue to be the focus of kia kia.ca

Litwin’s efforts, he said any cold-weather gear is appreciated, particularly by people he sees sleeping in the alleys downtown. “You know they’re freezing there butts off, so if you can pass (anything) along to these guys, you know they’ll use it. It’s not like they’re going to throw stuff away.” Donations can be dropped off at Litwin’s office at the corner of Main Street and Eckhardt Avenue. Pick-up and cleaning of items can also be arranged. Call 250-770-8888 for more information. Penticton’s Integrated Community Services team is also seeking specific donations for some of its member agencies. If you wish to donate, the items can be dropped off at the Downtown Penticton Association office at 209-212 Main St. If you’d like to take items directly to the agencies, you can contact the DPA for details at 250-4938540. Demand on the

non-profits is constant throughout the year, but spikes in the winter.

Determined to finish top-three during junior boys volleyball provincials, the Princess Margaret Mustangs accomplished that last weekend. They won bronze by defeating Langley Christian 25-14, 23-25 and 15-8 in Abbotsford at Mennonite Educational Institute. They started the provincial championship with wins against Fraser Heights from Surrey and Centennial Secondary from Coquitlam, then lost what coach John Buckley described as a “meaningless match” to StevestonLondon Secondary from Richmond. In the first playoff round, the Mustangs were led to victory with strong middle attack kills and blocking from Rylan Potter and Kohl Linder. They then defeated scrappy College Heights from Prince George 25-23, 25-12. A quarter-finals cross over match with Earl Marriott from Surrey resulted in the Mustangs having a strong performance winning 2513 and 25-16. “That was our best team performance of the year for an entire match,” said Mustangs co-captain Colton Van Camp in a re-

lease. Next up was host MEI, ranked No. 1. Buckley preferred that three-set underdog matchup over a five-set final for the chance of a victory. Playing in front of MEI’s home crowd and opening match pressure proved too much for the Mustangs. After losing 25-12, Buckley watched as his players regrouped to their powerhitting game. A back and forth battle resulted in a 25-23 loss. “We had the top team on the ropes and if we could have closed out that game we could have scared them if it went three, as we were gaining confidence,” said Buckley. “It came down to them being more experienced and

better passers and servers as a team.” Co-coach Terry Major said the Mustangs can win provincials in a couple years. Buckley said the Mustangs’ bronze medal win feels more like silver since they defeated rivals Kelowna Secondary School, who placed second in provincials, nine out of 10 times during the year. Junior girls The Mustangs placed 16th out of 24 teams. A two-set loss to Victoria’s Oak Bay put the Mustangs in third in their pool. That also placed them in the bracket of 13th to 18th place. “We played a little inconsistent and a little nervous and came out on

the losing end 25-22 and 25-20,” said Mustangs coach Rich Corrie. “Our strong serving, which has been a real weapon for us for most of the year, let us down a little bit, mostly due to nerves.” The Mustangs were more relaxed on Saturday. While the Mustangs lost to Seaquam of Delta and Kelowna Secondary, they won in straight sets over Langley Fundamental. Sydney McKinlay and Taylor Corrie were chosen as all-stars for the provincial tournament. “I am really proud of the girls, they represented our school and city all year with great sportsmanship and class,” he said.

Papers were signed and hands were shook as the South Okanagan Youth Soccer Association and Excelsior Rotterdam FC formed a partnership. “I was super excited this morning. We signed a letter of understanding with each other’s clubs where we can exchange players, coaches and resources,” said SOYSA executive director/head coach Ezra Cremers. “The future is very bright for our club, but also our region.” After visiting Excelsior Rotterdam FC in Holland during the summer, the club invited general manager Ferry de Haan and Marco van Lochem, head of youth sports, to visit their facilities over the past week. On Monday for six hours, van Lochem worked with the different age group players SOYSA has in its Excelsior program. Only their best players are picked for Excelsior. One of those players is Luke Gray, 11, who followed through on drills and lis-

tened to the instruction of van Lochem. “It was a good experience,” said Gray, whose favourite player is Robin van Persie. “I liked all the new drills we got to do. I think he’s a good coach. He gets us to keep doing things until we get it right.” Among the skills that Gray learned was how to turn while touching the ball, and when and where he should pass it. “It was better when he demonstrated it,” said Gray. Van Lochem enjoyed working with the kids and noticed the difference in them compared to his back home. “In Holland we are always asking the kids: What do you see? What do you think? How can we do it better? How can we improve it?” said van Lochem. “Here they do it. In Holland, sometimes the kids think too much.” He said their players in Holland are still better. “If they train for two weeks in Holland, I think it’s three months training here in Canada,” he said, adding that SOYSA players are still a little bit far away. However, if they stay on the path they are on now, the gap will close. When it comes to coaching the players, van

said. “Lets see if the boys can play four times a week, do it for five or six years then I think Penticton is a factory for Canadian soccer.” Van Lochem said it’s important for the kids to play more and they need better facilities. “They still have very good facilities already,” he said. “They need (more) artificial grass to play the whole season.” De Haan said he feels both clubs can benefit from their new partnership by learning from each other. “The knowledge of the coaches should be at a higher level so they can bring it to the kids so the level of the kids picks up,” he said. “I have heard from Marco what Ezra and his guys are doing here. I take a look for myself. The way they train and try to improve the skills of the boys and the girls, it’s very interesting for us.” “The biggest point was to show our facilities,” said Cremers, who was pleased with how the trip went. “Our program, our players, our coaches. Am I proud of the players and what they accomplished today? Yes, but he also exposes what needs to be worked on. When he comes back, we can show him we’re improving every step of the way.”

Former Laker a key to Vikes Emanuel Sequeira Western News Staff

Cassandra Goodis is the floor general for the Unversity of Victoria Vikes basketball team. Goodis, a third-year Vike, never had to wait long to make an impact on the court as women’s coach Danielle Sinclair said Goodis was a key from the beginning. “She was able to come in and lead us,” said Sinclair, adding that Goodis is a skilled and smart player. “She can go out there and get us organized and run the offence.” Sinclair recalls a situation during a game when she called in the players to create a special play and Goodis had already thought of one. “She reads the game well, like another coach,” said Sinclair. “She is able to picks things up quickly because she understands

the game.” The Vikes opened the season against the UBCO Heat and won 88-78. Goodis finished with nine points, eight assists and three steals. The Vikes defeated the Heat again 83-64 and Goodis finished with 10 assists. The Vikes are now 6-2 in Canada West action in Canadian Interuniversity Sport and riding a fourgame winning streak. They sit second in the Pacific Division. Sinclair said Goodis is a huge key on both sides of the court, but is more dangerous on the offensive end. She likes to be generous thinking pass first. However, she’s also a great scorer, who is known to net timely baskets. “She’s very capable of putting up 20 points a game,” said Sinclair. Well-liked among her teammates, Goodis can

be hard to read because she’s quiet. Working with Goodis since her rookie season, Sinclair has gotten to know the player off the court. She describes the former Pen High Laker as being caring of teammates. “Very motivated and intent on doing well for herself and the team,” said Sinclair. Goodis’ highest scoring game this season was on Nov. 23 collecting 19 points against the University of Alberta in a 77-70 win. Goodis also added eight assists and six steals in 40 minutes of action. Sinclair’s only expectation of Goodis is for her to be a leader. Being a third-year player, Sinclair is demanding more. The Vikes coach also wants to see Goodis take care of the ball and improve her assist-to-

turnover ratio. Goodis is second in the conference with a 2.2 assist-to-turnover ratio and leads the Vikes in defensive rebounds (5.8 average per game), assists (5.0 average per game) and steals (2.5 average per game.) Goodis, who last season averaged 10.3 points per game in nearly 34 minutes and 4.4 rebounds per game, has also formed a dynamic duo with Jessica Renfrew. “Jess is a good athlete who likes to run the floor,” said Sinclair. “Cassandra is good at finding her. They often pair up a lot for fast break lay-ups. They have played together for so long they have that connection. It’s been good for us.” That will help the Vikes as they strive to make the playoffs after missing them for the first time in 10 years last season.

North Shore a hub for biking It’s an unfulfilled mountain biker who has never heard of Vancouver’s North Shore. The birthplace of a trail-blazing style of freeriding — on pathways strewn with fallen logs, granite boulders, bridges and other manmade wooden structures — these tracks may have spawned an eponymous trend for trail riding in other locales, but North Vancouver’s slopes remain at the heart of the sport. Want to ride for yourself? Finding the right trail to match one’s time, interest and skill level can be a frustrating endeavour. That is, unless you saddle up with the team at Endless Biking, a North Vancouver-based company that offers tailormade guided tours of the North Shore’s bounty of single-track. They are one of the only full service mountain bike outlets in North America, open seven days a week. The company is owned and operated by professional mountain bikers Darren Butler and Kelli Sherbinin. Their philosophy is that they are committed to building a sustainable future for mountain biking and work hard to improve participation, access, awareness and performance in the sport. They believe cycling is a great activity for all ages and abilities. Rides range from two to six hours, and can focus on scenic, cross-country or downhill trails. For adventurers with
