Heart attack spurred action

Anatomy of a violent arrest gets dissected Cheryl Wierda

When West Kelowna’s Judy Smith sprang into action to save her husband’s life after he collapsed with a heart attack in September, she did not have CPR training. But she remembered what she had seen on television and started doing chest compressions anyway until her neighbour, retired nurse Sandy Hodgins, quickly arrived to take over. “I was hugely relived when Sandy showed up,” said Smith, knowing Hodgins had proper CPR training. Hodgins, using the training she received as a nurse, kept working on Joe until the paramedics arrived and the actions of both women are credited with helping bring Joe back from the dead—literally. When he had his heart attack, his heart stopped and it took paramedics three goes with the defibulator to restart it. “I noticed that a cut on Joe’s forehead wasn’t bleeding (a sign that his heart had stopped) and I knew I had to do something, said Judy Smith.

CAMERA SHY…Professional photographer Rhea Taylor focuses to capture a portrait of Buddy

with Santa Claus at the annual Christmas pet photo shoot recently hosted by the Buckerfield’s store in Kelowna.

What factors police consider as they assess the risk of a situation and the level of force they can use was the focus of testimony Wednesday as the other officer present when Const. Geoff Mantler kicked Buddy Tavares in the head during an arrest testified in Mantler’s assault causing bodily harm trial. Const. Robyn Boffy pulled up to the arrest scene on KLO Road at Pandosy Street as Mantler, gun drawn, was next to Tavares’ truck. She headed to the passenger side of the truck to check for other passengers and to see if she could spot a firearm. At the time, police were responding to a call that an ex-employee of the Harvest Golf Club had fired shots while at the KLO Road property. That man, identified as Tavares, had suffered a brain injury in a motorcycle accident the previous summer and had two firearms registered in his name at the time of the Jan. 7, 2011, incident, the court heard. As Boffy saw Tavares start to leave the truck, she went around the back of the Dodge to assist Mantler with the arrest, considered high risk because of the alleged weapons offence. As she rounded the corner, she perceived Tavares to be bent over at the waist with his face down as she saw Mantler deliver the kick. She later learned by watching journalist Kelly Hayes’ video of the arrest that Tavares was on or nearly on his hands and knees when the kick was delivered. Boffy said officers are trained to be aware that there could be “one more bad guy, one more weapon” when they encounter a situation and that they are to constantly assess the threat level. A lack of response from a suspect, a person moving contrary to a police officer’s demands, slow reaction time, the ability of an officer to see a suspect’s hands, and the number of bystanders around would have all factored into that risk assessment, she agreed under cross examination. Defence counsel Neville McDougall went through the arrest video, frame by frame, and Boffy testified Tavares’ hands look like they drop at one point while he is in the truck and then that his hand appears near his waist as he exits the truck.

Hockeyville prize money to be spent on highway sign Wade Paterson STAFF REPORTER

Signs and billboards are a common—and often undesired—sight while driving on Highway 97, west of the bridge. But West Kelowna council and the Hockeyville committee are convinced an electronic community sign at the intersection of Bartley Road and Highway 97 will be more appealing to the public. On Tuesday, West Kelowna council unanimously voted to put the $25,000 it earned from coming second in the 2012 Hockeyville competition toward the installation of an electronic highway sign in its 2013 capital budget. A final decision will be considered during budget deliberations. The Hockeyville committee brought forward three options of how it wished to see the money spent. It indicated an electronic highway sign was its top choice. A second option was to install an addition to the media gondola at Royal LePage Place and the third was to install a commercial grade wireless Internet system in the arena. Adam Less, co-chairman of West Kelowna’s Hockeyville bid, told council the committee wanted the money spent on something that benefits the entire community. “We learned Hockeyville was really nothing about hockey, it was about community and community spirit,” said Less. He suggested that along with advertising West Kelowna Warriors’ games and district announcements, the new sign could be used by

various non-profit community groups to showcase their events. The cost of the electronic sign is estimated at $125,000, which would force the district to use $100,000 from future expenditure reserves. “This money is different; it’s different because we earned it,” said Less. “A lot of people put in a lot of time and effort for no other reason than to have those bragging rights and feel like they all came together for something.” Coun. Bryden Winsby said he struggled with the sign idea because of the significant cost. “I like the concept but I’m a little nervous about us having to quadruple our Hockeyville prize to have a sign (installed),” said Winsby. He said he was also concerned the public might not be receptive to another type of billboard along the highway. He questioned whether the sign was a want or a need. “I think this is a need and it’s something that would be used far and wide throughout the community,” said Less. Early recommendations suggest the sign will be six feet high, 15 feet wide and located 15 feet above the ground. It will have the ability to display full colour text messaging and video. Mayor Doug Findlater said the sign will be a highway landmark for drivers, directing them to the arena, council chambers and Mount Boucherie Senior Secondary. “I see this as a community billboard that brings people together. I think that’s the legacy of Hockeyville—bringing people together.” wpaterson@kelownacapnews.com

▼ SWITE

Penticton killer will wait years for parole Kristi Patton CONTRIBUTOR

It will be at least another seven years before the man who received a life 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, 20-years-old at the time of his arrest, was found guilty by a jury for first-degree murder of Olive Hill in 2009. An appeal was launched, and in June the decision was overturned because of the possible bias of jurors. During his retrial this month, Swite pleaded guilty to the lesser offence of second-degree murder. 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 let her cat 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 2020. According to Crown counsel Rob Brunneau, the parole application process takes a minimum of six months and more likely two years before the parole board makes its 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. He 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 the judge. 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 with 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 life-

style continued when he was victim of 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 lawyer 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 proceedings. Josephson, who was the judge in the trial of the bombing of Air India Flight 182, said in his reasons for sentencing that he requested Swite be offered some culturally appropriate programs while incarcerated and it is his hope he can continue on the path of sobriety.

More time needed to implement potential changes to ALR Judie Steeves STAFF REPORTER

Although the applications for exclusion from the Agricultural Land Reserve keep flooding in, commission chair Richard Bullock says they’ve reduced the flow somewhat and more changes are coming. Bullock, a Kelowna orchardist who took over as chair of the Agricultural Land Commission about a year and a half ago, im-

Richard Bullock mediately embarked on a review of the 40-year-old ALR to come up with a

series of recommendation for changes in direction. A year later, he admits such changes take time, but Bullock says he hopes that by spring next year some of those changes will be underway. Digitizing material so that much of the business of the ALC can be done online was one of the first orders of business, and that work is currently going on. Once that’s done, he says they’ll be in a pos-

ition to move people around the province instead of all staff working out of the Burnaby office. “There’s some amazing technology out there that we’ve missed,” he noted. Because civic governments from around the province continue to pass on recommendations to the ALC for exclusions and other actions, Bullock says the commission has no choice but to deal with them. However, he has

been meeting with regional districts and municipalities around the province and has been encouraged by the changing attitudes he’s seen toward the ALR. “There’s a new generation of local politicians who have more awareness of the environment and of the ALR. There’s a change in thinking, with the younger generation of politicians more positive and more accepting of the ALR,” he commented. “I think people are willing to accept that it’s here to stay. It won’t happen overnight, but changes in attitude are needed.” He promised once the ALC’s transition period

is over, some interesting things will start to happen. Agricultural advisory committees such as what already operate in Kelowna and West Kelowna are being encouraged by the new chair, but he hastens to add: “I can’t tell local groups what to do.” The ALC has good working relationships with both those municipal governments, he said. One thing that has surprised him in his travels around the province is the attitude toward local produce, local agriculture. “I would never have guessed that local products would have such a high profile. That’s hugely important for society,”

he said. He pointed to the Kootenay community of Nelson which shuts down its main street every Wednesday for its farmers’ market. He said people come out in droves to pick up fresh produce. The ALC has made recommendations to the agriculture ministry regarding a sustainable model for the body, involving user fees. Bullock says the ministry is still reviewing the comments and feedback on possible fee structures and hasn’t made a decision yet on details of a new model. jsteeves@kelownacapnews.com

Drug bust pegged to organized crime Kelowna home part of three-pronged drug bust police have labelled as the largest MDMA take-down in B.C. history. Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

Police are not saying exactly how they clued into a “clandestine super lab” of MDMA, the chemical concoction commonly converted to ecstasy pills. But they will say the resulting bust of three properties in Kelowna and Westbridge (between Beaverdell and Rock Creek) is one of the biggest, if not the biggest, MDMA (methylenedioxy-methylamphetamine) bust ever in British Columbia. “Production methods at this level points directly to the involvement of organized crime groups motivated by profit,” said

Insp. Rick Flewelling, operations support officer for the Kelowna RCMP, at a press conference held Tuesday. Ecstasy, described as a brand of MDMA, is served as a pill and the amount of raw material confiscated in this operation could provide up to 200,000 pills, making the 3.5 kilograms of product worth over $1 million. The processing lab was on Christian Valley Road, just outside Beaverdell on the way to Rock Creek, in a settlement known as Westbridge. Police had identified one individual who was already known to them and followed through with an investigation from there, although they

would not say what triggered it or how the events unfolded. What is known is that on Wednesday, Nov. 21, RCMP executed a search warrant on the Christian Valley Road property, finding a number of individuals cooking MDMA in an exothermic reaction lab. The Kelowna bust followed with police searching a storage locker and a private residence in the Mission on Chute Lake Road. The home is the residence of 32-year-old Ryan Patrick Novy and is said to be the office hub of the operation and a storage locker containing the chemical precursors to MDMA. Novy is among four people subsequently arrested in the case. He is now facing four charges related to the case including possession for the purposes of trafficking and production of a controlled substance. Alesya Efimenko, 29, William Charles Forrest, 24, and Bradley Fraser Garth, 39, are charged with possession for the purposes of trafficking and production of a controlled substance. The case returns to court Jan. 31 and more ar-

rests are expected to follow. The ‘E’ Division Clandestine Lab Enforcement and Response Team was deployed and attended the first two sites for assessment and to dismantle and process the scenes. The lab alone was said to have 500 gallons of toxic waste and the Chute Lake property some $85,000 in cash, not to mention bags of MDMA. Police could not say exactly how long the entire operation had been up and running, estimating it at somewhere between six months and two years. “Precursors and active clan labs pose huge fire risks and potential hazmat situations to the immediate environment, neighbourhood and community due to the nature of the chemicals used and their toxic by-products,” said Sgt. Duncan Pound who deals with super labs provincially. “As devastating as this environmental damage can be, it pales in comparison to the lives of both youths and adults that are destroyed by the types of synthetic drugs being produced in ‘clan’ labs,” Pound said.

▼ BEHAVIOUR PROBLEMS

New medications can help dogs with mental health issues FURRY FRIENDS

Dr. Moshe Oz ate behaviour when the dog gets left alone even in a familiar environment. The most common complaints I hear from owners are that the dog constantly howls, barks or whines, destroys by chewing various objects in the house such as furniture, doors and windows. Some dogs urinate and defecate in the house despite being house trained. These dogs will usually express extreme excitement when the owner returns home. This condition is extremely irritating for the dog’s owner but it is crucial to understand the nature of this behaviour. These are symptoms of severe stress. Dogs are social creatures, they consider the family as their “pack” in which they are an equal member. It is not natural for dogs to be separated from their owners and some

dogs get very distressed by it. When they exhibit destructive behaviour, it is not done out of vindictiveness, it is their way of trying to free themselves. Soiling the house may represent a sign of severe emotional distress. Because we cannot converse with the dog, the diagnosis of separation anxiety is tentative and is done by ruling out other medical problems that may result in a similar behaviour. Puppies may show destructive behaviour as a part of teething and not due to separation anxiety. So punishing the dog will not help solving the problem. On the contrary,when you punish your dog when you return home, it may associate the punishment with your return rather than with the mischief it caused. This may stress it even more when you leave home the next time. The management of this condition is not straightforward. This problem will not go away on its own.

Vets offer aid for neglected street dogs Okanagan veterinarians have stepped forward in a big way to help out a population of neglected street dogs a world away in India. “I was totally blown away by their generosity, especially Trilake Animal Hospital in Winfield” said Kelowna resident Lee Kaiser, who will be leaving mid-December to volunteer with The Care Project for street dogs based in a town south of Chennai, India. “The vets there donated enough medicine and parvo vaccines to fill a whole suitcase. I was asking for anything expired which was tagged to be thrown out and wasn’t sure if I’d get anything so this is just wonderful.” Other area vets and pet stores have contributed hundreds of dollars in medicine or dog collars, she said, including Panorama Vet, also in Winfield, KLO Vet Hospital in the Mission, and the Total Pet store on Harvey Avenue. But Trilake’s contribution, valFamily Owned & Operated Since 1967

ued at about $1,000, was by far the largest. As the British veterinary nurse who founded the project in 2006 experienced, Kaiser was also touched by the plight of the street dogs in India during a visit there two years ago. “I’d seen starving and sick street dogs in other parts of the world but these conditions were the worst. There seemed to be litters of sick, abandoned puppies around every corner,” Kaiser said. “I wanted to help somehow and fortunately saw Elaine (Philpott’s) notice in a tourist cafe in Mahaballapuram the day I was leaving India.” Dog shelters or non-profit clinics are almost non-existent in India, said Kaiser, and according to the project’s website the average Indian street dog’s lifespan is just two years, while 75 per cent of puppies die of disease or are killed. The clinic, which also treats cats, is run solely on donations and volEST. 1967

unteer help. The focus has expanded to include vaccinating the dogs against rabies, neutering and educating locals on dog ownership. “Elaine is hoping to have a shelter in future but for now she treats the dogs, puts a collar on them, likely to prevent them from being culled, and then has to release them back to the street. “She started it all on her own and it seems to still be that way. It may be cliched but this is proof of what one person can accomplish if they feel passionate enough about it. “On their Facebook page people like me are writing in from all over the world to offer whatever help they can,” said Kaiser. Anyone wanting to donate new or used collars, medicine or funds to be taken to India can contact Kaiser at 250-870-3881. For more information or to volunteer go online to www.thecareproject.org.

ack in the day, it was very uncommon for people to take medication for their mental issues. People that were treated medically were considered crazy. Going to a psychiatrist was the last resort and was done secretly and accompanied by feelings of shame. Today, people are far more aware of the importance of good mental health. The same holds true for dogs. Veterinary medicine has also changed and developed in how to deal with their mental problems. Most often a dog’s behavioral disorders are misinterpreted by the owners as mischief. This behaviour usually annoys and aggravates their owners. This results in angry reaction of the owner that may exacerbate the dog’s problem.   This vicious cycle can be resolved by understanding the dog’s behaviour and the management options. The most common behavioral problem of dogs is separation anxiety. This is usually manifested in dogs by destructive and inappropri-

Boffy agreed she would find that action as a threat, as suspects are known to hide weapons in their waistband. Tavares also appears to take his hands off his knees and move them up during the process of getting onto the ground. Milliseconds later, Mantler delivered a kick to Tavares’ head, the video shows.

He alerted his wife to the emergency and she raced down three flights of stairs to assist. On Wednesday, both women were recognized by the B.C. Ambulance Service for their quick reactions. The pair were presented with Vital Link awards, medals the BCAS gives to civilians who perform CPR and help save lives. “Bystander CPR is critical to patient survival of a sudden cardiac arrest,” said BCAS Okanagan North superintendent Norm Matheson, who presented the women with

fy. “…From just watching (Hayes’) video, he appears cooperative.” However, she also testified she felt that Tavares wasn’t being “as cooperative as he could have been.” Non-cooperative is the second level on the police use of force guideline. Later, Boffy’s husband, Const. Kyle Boffy, was also questioned about the police model and when police can use “serious force.” Boffy said that may occur when a suspect is “combative or assaultive,” which is level four on the 5-level police use of force guidelines.

Matheson said the quick action by Smith and Hodgins underscores the importance of people knowing CPR and not being afraid to use that training. He said he would like to see B.C. follow the lead of Washington State, where CPR is part of the Grade 10 curriculum for high school students. As a result, Washington State has a higher percentage of out-of-hospital heart attack survivors

because more bystanders have CPR training than in B.C. “About 12 per cent of people (in B.C.) have CRP training,” said Matheson. “We’d like to get that up to 20 per cent.” He said there are some high schools in B.C. that invite paramedics in to train teachers, who, in turn, train students in CPR. But so far, participation is voluntary on behalf of the schools. Locally, one school that does participate in such a program is Mt. Boucherie Secondary in West Kelowna. As for the man whose life was saved by the two West Kelowna women, words cannot begin to describe Joe Smith’s gratitude. Joe said he feels

For Sandy Hodgins, seeing Joe alive after he collapsed was emotional. She said she only ever needed to do CPR on someone outside a hospital once before, many years ago in Ontario. And that time, the result was tragically very different. As for Judy Smith, who did not have CPR training when her husband collapsed, she is planning to change that. “I have talked to a man with the ambulance service about getting trained. I hope I never have to use it but…I think everyone should be trained.”

Local bartender wins big again Valet parking now at airport Judie Steeves STAFF REPORTER

Liquid chef Gerry Jobe of RauDZ Regional Table is putting the Okanagan on the map as far as the creative cocktail scene is concerned. He’s just beat out all the Vancouver and Victoria bartenders at the gruelling Bittered Sling Bistro bartending competition with an imaginative cocktail experience that has a fascinating tale to it. Last year, he won the regional (Western North American) category at the St. Germain Can Can International competition, and in 2010, he won passage into a world competition in Jamaica after winning the Appleton Estate bartender challenge in Toronto. All of which brings attention to Kelowna and the Okanagan, and to the local producers of wine, spirits, beers, fruit, herbs and other products he uses in his concoctions. “I carry our local suppliers on my back when I go to other communities to compete,” he says. “It’s a celebration of local winemakers, distillers, orchardists, herb growers and farmers.” He’s a strong believer, just as chef Rod Butters of RauDZ is, in featuring local ingredients as much as possible in his creations. And, he competes because, he says, “I want to get the Okanagan on the map as far as the cocktail scene is concerned.” The Bittered Sling Bistro competition at the Keefer Bar in Vancouver is in its second year, and it’s the second year that Jobe has brought home the top prize. To even get into the final round, he had to create 108 different cocktails to match each course in three-course dinners on which guests vote for their favourites. Of the 12 competitors, five were selected for the finals. It was a six-month process that Jobe compares to the Iron Chef cooking competition. The winning cocktail, which had to use Bittered Sling Extracts, whiskey and think 1920s Chicago, was formed around his

He even used aromatic tobacco smoke to help give a hint of that flavour to the drink to represent the Chicago fire; created a vermouth with Laughing Stock’s Portfolio wine and Seville oranges and

used a house-made chocolate liqueur; then served it on a torched cedar plank with a Cracker Jack prize package alongside, to represent Wrigley Field. It’s called Leisure Rules. Jobe says while you won’t find that one on the menu at RauDZ, there is a story behind every cock-

tail created there, because he believes each should be an experience for the customer, not just a drink— each should evoke memories for the consumer. Cocktails are back, and in line with the resurgence in interest in them, Jobe says they’re taking it a step further, with locally-inspired experiences in a glass. “I’m not interested in doing gimmicks, or doing what someone else has done before,” he says. Although his Dad was a bartender when he was a youngster in Salmon Arm, he moved away from it for many years, including serving for many years in restaurants, but at 19 he got behind the bar again and spent 15 years on Granville Street banging out fruitie drinks and then long-stemmed mixtures during the martini craze. He’s moved on from that, and says this is the place to be for the innovative bartender, surrounded by local distilleries, wineries, breweries, orchards and farms with all sorts of inspiring products. jsteeves@kelownacapnews.com

Parking options at Kelowna International Airport (YLW) have just gone up a notch. Starting Dec. 1, valet parking services will be offered at YLW. “We are always looking for opportunities to make a positive impact for travellers using our airport,” said airport director Sam Samaddar. “Valet parking is one of those added services that, for the right passenger in a hurry, with special needs or with their hands full, can make a positive difference.” For a fee added to the daily or weekly long-term parking rate, passengers arriving by personal vehicle can drive to the valet kiosk at the south entrance of the terminal building. Once the vehicle keys are handed to the attendant and flight information is provided, the passenger is

free to catch their flight. When the passenger returns to YLW, whether gone for the day, two weeks, or longer, their car will be waiting for them near the valet kiosk. As an introduction to the new service, the valet parking rate will be $10 in December. On Jan. 1, 2013, the fee will increase to $15. The service fee will be added to the final parking cost at the end of the daily or we term parking rate. Royal Star Enterprises provides the parking services at YLW. In addition to the valet service, Royal Star staff also provide the free courtesy ride to and from the terminal for passengers who park in the long-term parking lot.

Time to rethink war on drugs

A

study released this month has revealed the cost the failed war on drugs is having on the British Columbia economy. This latest study, compiled by a coalition of researchers from the University of British Columbia and Simon Fraser University, estimates the B.C. cannabis market could provide the government with $2.5 billion in tax and licensing revenues over the next five years. “If you begin to stand back and calculate just how much potential tax revenue is instead go-

ing to fuel organized crime, it really highlights how we need to start questioning our current approach,” said Dr. Evan Wood, senior author of the study. The study is just the latest blow against those who remain committed to preserve and protect the profit margins of organized crime. The study challenges one of the primary arguments against regulating marijuana—that the market cannot be taxed. Critics had previously pointed to U.S. drug laws as a reason why B.C. shouldn’t move towards decrim-

inalization. But when Colorado and Washington state voters approved the legalization of marijuana use, that argument went up in smoke. “When you look at the enormous potential to save on policing costs, raise government revenue and wage economic war on organized crime, you understand why U.S. states have recently taken the taxation and regulation approach,” said former B.C. premier Ujjal Dosanjh. The list of those calling for changes to marijuana laws has grown to include those from

across the political spectrum. The Union of B.C. Municipalities passed a resolution earlier this year calling for the decriminalization of marijuana. Stop the Violence B.C. is a group B.C. law enforcement officials, politicians, legal experts and public health officials advocating changes to the government’s marijuana policies. It seems the only ones left still supporting the current drug laws are those who make their living in organized crime — and their unwitting allies in the provincial and federal governments.

Mega-quarry victory shows people have the power

“N

ever doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world.” These words, attributed to anthropologist Margaret Mead, capture the power that we, as citizens, have to overcome seemingly insurmountable odds to protect the environment. It just happened in Ontario, where Highland Companies announced it was withdrawing its plan to build a massive open-pit limestone quarry in the rural countryside north of Toronto. The controversial proposal to blast a billion tonnes of limestone from beneath some of the finest farmland in North America initially drew the ire of a handful of local farmers and

residents who faced overwhelming odds to stop it. Rules governing aggregate mining in the province are weak, provide little protection against large projects and too often sacrifice prime agricultural land and nature to industry. And it’s easy to understand why cash-strapped, rural-based municipalities would be tempted to accept industrial projects, with their promise of local employment and an improved tax base. Making the battle against the quarry more challenging was the

fact that Highland was backed by a Boston hedge fund, the Baupost Group, with assets of more than $25 billion. It was also represented by Hill and David Knowlton, the highSuzuki priced PR firm that infamously worked with big tobacco to convince smokers that cigarettes don’t cause cancer. Citizens rallied, though, and showed that the real issue was the protection of local food lands and drinking water, things of importance well beyond the borders of their community. Opponents of the mega-quarry

reached out to people who may not have considered how they would be affected if a company succeeded in destroying thousands of acres of fertile fields close to a large urban centre like Toronto. Groups like the North Dufferin Agricultural and Community Taskforce successfully brought the battle to the city, through tireless outreach at events like farmers markets. Thousands of “Stop the Mega Quarry” signs sprouted in yards in towns and cities across southern Ontario. In 2011, renowned chef Michael Stadtlander, from the nearby community of Singhampton, produced Foodstock with the Canadian Chefs Congress and local farmers. The pro-

test event drew 28,000 people to a farm field a few hundred metres from where the quarry would be built. This past October, that celebration of local food and protest was replicated in Toronto, when the David Suzuki Foundation (which had earlier provided scientific research and submissions for the regulatory process) and the Canadian Chefs’ Congress hosted Soupstock. More than 200 top chefs from Canada and the U.S. prepared gourmet soup from donated local ingredients for more than 40,000 supporters. They sent a strong message to the company that urbanites stand in solidarity with the farmers of See Suzuki A11

City should get moving on Cedar Park plan To the editor: Last fall the hottest item that Kelowna council was dealing with was the controversy over the city’s proposal to build a big building on the waterfront at the foot of Cedar Avenue in the South Pandosy area. Most of the public felt that this property should be a park and after much controversy and numerous meetings the building proposal was killed by council. The recommendation by council was to conduct a public study in early 2012 to look at alternatives and determine what would be the most desirable use for this valuable piece of property. Then a new council was elected and many of the councillors who

understood the issues were voted out of office. There has been no action since. The recommended public study has never been started. The old city-owned rental houses on this beautiful piece of lakefront property just sit there deteriorating while the public is denied access to a new park that could be one of the jewels of Kelowna. This property consists of about 900 feet of lakeshore studded with many large trees, some of which likely fall into the heritage category. The bay that the property straddles is home to numerous waterfowl and predatory birds. Osprey, bald eagles, kingfishers and even the occasional golden eagle

fish there and can be seen regularly diving into the shallow waters to catch their prey. But right now that view is blocked by eight old rental houses that the city has owned for about 20 years. This is a property that is only one short block from the heart of the vibrant and rapidly growing South Pandosy commercial centre and within an easy walk of many condominium complexes. The South Pandosy area calls itself The Village by the Lake but, unfortunately, it is not. However, with the proper vision by city council and some work and some money it could be The Village on the Lake. The work involved

would not be significant compared to other projects already under way in the area. The money involved to demolish the houses and build a park would be about comparable to the cost of the new offices at the dump. Additionally, a clear decision by the city to proceed with this project will eliminate the uncertainty that clouds the area between Abbott Street and Pandosy Street and will encourage developers to turn that land which now is predominantly covered by old rental houses into an up-scale, attractive and tax-paying feature of Kelowna. Now is the time for council and city management to act courageously and not be discouraged

by the fact that their last attempt to do something with this lakefront property brought so much public opposition. The public are the taxpayers and city council and the city administrators should be doing what is in the public’s best interest. If anyone has an opinion on this matter then please either write a letter to the editor or contact a councillor to make your feelings known. Otherwise the city will likely just continue to procrastinate until a developer comes forward with his plan for the property.

Gordon Drive bears brunt of truck traffic To the editor: Less than two years ago, without fanfare and without consultation, the city decided to close the Ellis Street Truck Route from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m., diverting all night truck traffic to Gordon Drive. Disregarding the single family homes and duplexes along Gordon and west to St. Paul and east to Burtch (Lower Glenmore), and Centurion and Kiwanis Tower condos and the square blocks of condos and apartments opposite, and the new Regency Northwood Seniors’ Resort, their stated prime rationale was the “increased residential component on Ellis.” Once again without consultation, the city has decided to completely shut down all truck traffic on Ellis and are looking to upgrade Gordon to handle the expected daily increase of 400 trucks.

There’s not a lot that can be done to move any more traffic. North of Springfield, Gordon Drive narrows considerably where it originally was only a single lane in both directions. Instead of continuing the bike lanes, the city has already removed the boulevards and banned parking during peak hours to accommodate an additional lane each way. In addition to exacerbating the parking problems on the side streets, this has created an extremely dangerous situation for pedestrians and home owners. There is absolutely no buffer against the traffic. In two accidents during this school year, in a period of two weeks, cars travelling on Gordon have ended up in the first and second yards on Stockwell, one of them taking out the stop/street sign. This is where the Store Front

and Bankhead School students cross, where parents and kids and seniors cross to attend programs at the Martin Centre, or services at the many churches in the area, or to skate at Stuart Park. Across the street, several vehicles have jumped the curb over the years, the last a truck that took out the home owner’s fence and caused debris to make a hole in his roof. He now has a four-foot concrete barrier in front of his place, courtesy of the city. Compounding the problem are the obstacles on the sidewalk—poles, metal utility containers, waste and recycling containers (no accommodation for them on the road)—sometimes forcing pedestrians and scooters directly onto the road. Contrast Gordon with Spall Road, where there are no residential or business components, where there are wide multi-lanes

equipped with safe and proper turning lanes and lights and easy access to the Clement connector. There is far more rationale to close the Gordon Drive truck route—close it and continue the bike lanes right through to the Cawston Multi-Purpose Pathway. And the city should be asking for input from all stakeholders before they make these decisions—a public meeting with council would be the best venue to accomplish this. If you agree, phone or email the mayor and council. You will find contact information on the city web site (www.Kelowna.ca) or in the phone book. You can also contact one of the three neighbourhood associations that border this section of Gordon Drive Lynda Zorn, Kelowna

Grassroots movement to save farmland Suzuki from A10 Melancthon to oppose the mega-quarry. Soupstock showed the movement was gaining momentum, but no one predicted that Highland would raise the white flag a month later. People power won! And it wasn’t the first time it’s happened in Canada. In 1984, I heard about a controversial plan to log the pristine Stein Valley, the last untouched watershed in the southern Coast Mountains, northeast of Vancouver. The battle to protect the Stein began with a small group of conservationists and scientists but soon

grew to include tens of thousands. In 1988, the B.C. government placed a moratorium on logging. A few years later the area was protected through the creation of the 1,060-square-kilometre Stein Valley Nlaka’pamux Heritage Park. Similar grassroots victories have helped stop logging on Haida Gwaii, prevented giant dams from being built in northern Quebec and halted highway projects that, if established, would have wiped-out historical neighbourhoods in downtown Toronto and Vancouver. Canada’s political and corporate leaders should take note. Controver-

sial megaprojects like the Northern Gateway Pipeline are being met with increasing criticism and public opposition. Although we’ll celebrate this victory over the mega-quarry, the Ontario government must also seize this call to overhaul its policies for aggregate mining that allowed the proposal to be considered in the first place. No community should have to fight so hard to ensure that prime farmland and valuable nature aren’t sacrificed to the interests of big business. But for now, we can savour success. Together, tens of thousands of people accomplished something that only

months ago seemed impossible—stopping the mega-quarry. David Suzuki is co-

Things are really going well with the rebuilding. If you have driven down Kirschner Road lately, you would have noticed the construction that is taking place, rebuilding with a view to enhance the Kirschner neighbourhood. The building will be 22,300 square feet and the precast walls started to go up Nov. 21. If the weather holds out in their favour, the steel work will start this week and over the next month the majority of the building will be built. It is intended to be a multi-use facility in the front for a restaurant or retail business and a service or commercial business

A&W restaurants band together to help kids fighting cystic fibrosis Okanagan A&W restaurants will be among the participants in the 5th annual Breath of Life Day, a local fundraiser to help infants, children and young adults with their daily battle against cystic fibrosis. Last year the local A&Ws raised over $42,000 and they are at it again this year. Saturday, Dec.1,

250-766-3933

A&W restaurants will donate one dollar for every burger sold and 100 per cent of all donations received, to Cystic Fibrosis Canada. Proceeds are used to fund research to improve treatment and find a cure. Local participating A&W Restaurants are located in West Kelowna, Kelowna (Lakeshore, Capri and Leathead sites), Winfield, Vernon, Armstrong, Salmon Arm, Kamloops and Ladysmith. A&W’s Breath of Life Day will be fun for all. Free Root Beer refills, visits by the Great Root Bear, and much more. “We deeply appreciate A&W’s generous support. With partners like A &W, we are working to sustain our research efforts to improve treatment methods and find a cure

for cystic fibrosis, a truly devastating disease,” said Jody Birnie, president, Okanagan Valley chapter of Cystic Fibrosis Canada. The A&W owner of the Ladysmith outlet spoke for all the participating franchise owners saying: “This is a very difficult condition for these children. It is an honour to do what we can. It is also one of the ways that we can give back to the communities in which we live and operate. Mark it down. Saturday, December 1. You are invited.” Cystic fibrosis is the most common, fatal, genetic disease affecting Canadian children and young adults.  In the digestive tract, CF blocks the absorption of adequate nutrients from food.  In the lungs, the ef-

fects of the disease are most devastating. In a short period of time, respiratory problems can become increasingly severe.  Ultimately, most CF deaths are due to loss of lung function. Cystic Fibrosis Canada is a nationwide charity, with 50 volunteer chapters, that fund CF research and care. In 2011, the foundation supported 88 projects, with over $30 million dollars across the country, exploring all aspects of the CF puzzle; from investigating new methods of fighting infection and inflammation in the lungs, to finding new therapies that target the basic defect at a cellular level.

Wood stove exchange program has grant support from government The regional districts of Central Okanagan and Okanagan-Similkameen have partnered up to jointly receive $22,000 from the provincial wood stove exchange program. This initiative encourages residents to replace their old wood stoves with cleaner burning models that will improve personal health and air quality. “By upgrading to a new stove and following the tips to burn smarter, British Columbians can ensure better air quality in their communities and a more positive effect on their own health,” said Environment Minister Terry Lake. The two regional districts, and 12 other participating communities and regional districts are receiving a total of more than $192,000 in grant funding from the ministry of environment to support their woodstove exchange goals for 2013. The goal is to have close to 700 stoves exchanged across the province in the coming year. Since 2008, the B.C. government has partnered with the BC Lung Association to run the wood stove exchange program. So far, the provincial government has put over $1.8 million towards the program which has resulted in over 5,000 old wood stoves successfully replaced. There are about 116,000 older model stoves currently in use around the province that can affect the health of homeowners, their neighbours and overall air

shed health. As the nights get longer and the weather gets colder, many British Columbians will be sparking up these wood-burning stoves for warmth; however, before doing so, it is important to remember some helpful tips to make burning more efficient while maintaining good air quality and personal health. For example, always use dry well-seasoned wood that is cut into small pieces—seasoned wood can provide as much as 15 per cent more heat than the same amount of unseasoned wood. It also significantly reduces air pollution. By burning smaller, hotter fires to ensure complete combustion of the wood, there should be very little visible smoke coming from the chimney and no smell of smoke indoors. It is also important to have any wood-burning appliances inspected and cleaned at least once a year by a certified technician. In B.C., all new wood stoves and inserts sold must meet U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) or Canadian Standards Association (CSA) emission standards. More than 5,000 wood-burning stoves have been replaced by cleaner burning models since the Provincial Wood Stove Exchange Program began five years ago—this equates to a reduction of more than 310 tonnes of particulate matter pumped into the air.

The B.C. government is moving ahead with a new price policy for generic drugs that will reduce the cost by 10 per cent starting April 1. The new policy sets the price of generic substitutes at 25 per cent of the brand-name product, whether the cost is paid by

the B.C. Pharmacare program, private health insurance or the patient. A further reduction to 20 per cent is set to take effect in April 2014. The health ministry cited the example of Lipitor, a widely prescribed drug for reducing cholesterol. A one-month supply of the brand-name drug costs $55, and in April the

B.C. Liberal government has made the right move, but it should have done it in 2010 when Ontario took action. Now some of the savings are at risk again as the federal government negotiates a trade agreement with the European Union, Farnworth said. European developers of brand-name drugs are seeking to extend patent protection to prevent the sale of generics for a longer period.

The budget for Pharmacare has risen by about 80 per cent in the past decade, but MacDiarmid said there have been offsetting savings as new drugs improve treatment and reduce the need for surgery.

Essentially, radon takes the path of least resistance, and resistance can vary between homes.

Radon gas is the second leading cause of lung cancer after smoking. Radon is a naturally occurring gas found in the ground throughout the world. Most homes that are in contact with the ground will contain some amount of radon gas. Radon becomes more of a concern when it reaches high levels. Radon levels vary across the country. Accord-

ing to Health Canada about seven per cent of the Canadian homes have radon levels that may be putting residents at risk. Here in the B.C. Interior, we have some “hot spot” areas with high radon levels in approximately 40 per cent of homes. Being heavier than air, radon accumulates in low lying areas like basements. Many houses contain recreation rooms or suites in the basement that are occupied for many hours per day. Rad ation with tobacco

The B.C. government is moving ahead with a new price policy for generic drugs that will reduce the cost by 10 per cent starting April 1. The new policy sets the price of generic substitutes at 25 per cent of the brand-name product, whether the cost is paid by

the B.C. Pharmacare program, private health insurance or the patient. A further reduction to 20 per cent is set to take effect in April 2014. The health ministry cited the example of Lipitor, a widely prescribed drug for reducing cholesterol. A one-month supply of the brand-name drug costs $55, and in April the

B.C. Liberal government has made the right move, but it should have done it in 2010 when Ontario took action. Now some of the savings are at risk again as the federal government negotiates a trade agreement with the European Union, Farnworth said. European developers of brand-name drugs are seeking to extend patent protection to prevent the sale of generics for a longer period.

Radon gas is the second leading cause of lung cancer after smoking. Radon is a naturally occurring gas found in the ground throughout the world. Most homes that are in contact with the ground will contain some amount of radon gas. Radon becomes more of a concern when it reaches high levels. Radon levels vary across the country. Accord-

ing to Health Canada about seven per cent of the Canadian homes have radon levels that may be putting residents at risk. Here in the B.C. Interior, we have some “hot spot” areas with high radon levels in approximately 40 per cent of homes. Being heavier than air, radon accumulates in low lying areas like basements. Many houses contain recreation rooms or suites in the basement that are occupied for many hours per day. Rad ation with tobacco

Violence against women is a pervasive human rights violation, a public health crisis and an obstacle to equality, development, security and peace. Forms of gender-based violence include, but are not limited to: domestic violence, sexual abuse, rape, sexual harassment, trafficking in women, forced prostitution and harmful practices. These forms of violence can result in physical, mental, sexual and reproductive health and other health problems. The 16 days of activism against gender violence campaign began last Sunday with International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women and will wrap up on Dec. 10, International Human Rights Day. As part of that campaign, two events will be held in Kelowna. Over the past eight months the Central Okanagan Elizabeth Fry Society has been working closely with Kelowna RCMP and other justice and child welfare partners to develop a Highest Risk Domestic Violence Protocol. This protocol, which will be officially signed at the RCMP detachment on Dec. 3, will help ensure the safety of women and children in our city. On Dec. 6, 1989, Marc Lépine, a 25-year-old from Montreal, entered a classroom at l’École Polytechnique de Montréal where he separated the male and female students. After claiming that he was “fighting feminism,” he shot all nine women in the room, killing six. He then moved through corridors, the cafeteria and another classroom, specifically targeting women to shoot. Overall, he killed 14 women and injured 10 other women and four men. December 6 is the National Day of

Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women in Canada. Established in 1991 by the federal government, this day marks the anniversary of the École Polytechnique massacre. On Thursday, Dec. 6 in Kelowna, a candlelight vigil will be held to mark this day and to remember those women who have died in gender-based violence both locally and across Canada. This includes: • Jennifer Cusworth (19)—killed by Neil Snelson in Kelowna in 1993 • Mindy Tran (8)—killed in Kelowna in 1994. Shannon Murrin was charged with her murder but acquitted in the 1993 court case • Crystal Gagnon (31)—killed by Mark Anaka in Kelowna in 2007 • Josephine (Babs) Capozzi (77)— killed by her son Cameron Capozzi in Kelowna in 2009 • Taylor Van Diest (18)—Matthew Foerster has been charged with her 2011 murder and is awaiting trial. The candlelight vigil will begin at 6.30 p.m. with a walk from Bean Scene Coffee at the Landmark Centre, across the Highway 97 foot bridge to the Parkinson Recreation Centre where the vigil will be held. All are invited to join the event to both show respect for victims and determination to end gender-based violence. Those who are unable to take part in the walk before the vigil are welcome to go straight to Parkinson Recreation Centre for the close of the vigil and rose dedication at Angel Way. For more information, contact Aimee Thompson, agency coordinator, at the Central Okanagan Elizabeth Fry Society, 250-763-4613 or email aimee@empoweringchange.net.

▼ UNDEFEATED SEASON

B.C. gold for U19 Crows rugby squad A year after coming up just short in their first ever B.C Rugby provincial final, the Kelowna Crows weren’t about to be denied a second time. In the first ever B.C. final on Kelowna turf, the Crows secured the U19 provincial tier 2 title Saturday at City Park with a convincing 21-5 victory over United from Coquitlam. It capped off an unbeaten campaign for a determined U19 Crows’ team which went 6-0 during the regular season. In the final, the home side set a fast tempo and at seven minutes struck first when captain Lyndon Duncan found the United in-goal for a try off of a penalty play from five metres out. Jed Anderson made good on the convert and the Crows were up 7-0.

Soon after, hooker James Letvinchuck punched in another try off of the back of a ruck from three metres out, and Anderson again made the convert to make the score to 14-0. The Crows were then dealt a heavy blow, however, when star fullback Amrit Mahal went down with an injury. The Kelowna side seemed to lose a step after the ensuing 10 minutes of injury time that it took to safely escort Mahal off of the field. At the same time the United squad seemed to step up their game, and their hard work paid off with a try to make it 14-5 at the half. The Crows came out swinging in the second half after being refocused by coaches Steve Doyle and Chuck Bullock. The pressure got to

United, who botched a kick from their in-goal to set up a Crows’ fivemetre scrum. Sam Overton picked the ball up off the back of the scrum and dished it to Joey Wallick for some insurance and another Kelowna try. Jed Anderson went three-forthree as he kicked the convert to round out the scoring. After the match, Barry Ebl presented plaques to United and the Crows on behalf of the British Columbia Rugby Union. Doug Manning then awarded the Crows with the provincial championship Cup on behalf of the Central Okanagan Rugby Enthusiasts. The victory concluded a perfect, unbeaten season for the Crows whose goal from the start of the campaign was to win the B.C. title.

Third tournament win for Fripp midget Rockets There’s something about the tournament format that brings out the best in the Kelowna Fripp Warehousing Rockets. For the third time in three tries this season, the Rockets have captured the title at a tier 1 midget tournament in B.C. After victories in Kamloops and at their own event in Kelowna earlier this month, the Fripp squad emerged as the gold medalists last weekend at the Prince George midget tournament. The win came in dramatic fashion as Kelowna defeated Coquitlam in Sunday’s championship game.

The Rockets jumped out to a 2-0 lead on goals by Ryan Lawson and Stephen Hawes, before Coquitlam bounced back with two of their now to tie the game 2-2, a score which held through the end of regulation. Sam Bobyn made three huge saves in the late going to keep the game tied. After a scoreless overtime session, the teams went to a shootout where Kobe Oishi and Tanner Campbell scored goals for Kelowna, while Bobyn stopped both Coquitlam shooters to secure gold for the Rockets. Kelowna posted a win and two ties in the round

robin, then defeated Vernon in the semi-final in another exciting shootout conclusion. After playing to a 1-1 draw through regulation, Oishi and Campbell scored in the shootout for the Rockets, while Chris Turner turned aside both Vernon attempts in the Kelowna net. Kelowna scored 18 goals during the weekend, nine of them off the power play and killed off 35 of 37 penalties for a 95 per cent kill rate. “Along with the four straight shootout goals and four clutch saves, the tournament win really did depend on spe-

▼ BANTAM FOOTBALL

Sun Devils play for B.C. title Sunday One more win. That’s what stands between the West Kelowna Sun Devils and a second straight B.C. junior bantam football title for a team from the Central Okanagan. On Sunday at Langley’s McLeod Stadium, the Sun Devils will take on the Coquitlam Vikings for the provincial championship. The Kelowna Lions won the B.C. junior bantam title last year. The West Kelowna side qualified for the final with a convincing semifinal win over the host Victoria Renegades last weekend at Bear Mountain Stadium.

The Sun Devils scored on their first possession and never looked back, ripping the Renegades 48-0 . On offence, Salem Clark connected with Jesse Sligter for a 30-yard reception which set up Ty Truong for a six-yard TD run. Clark threw for three TDs and 185 yards , while Nate Humes scored three majors, including receptions from 65 and 40 yards to go with a 55-yard run. Hunter Desson returned an interception 40 yards and closed the deal with a six-yard TD run. Nick Kopp had six carries and a major while Chris

Smith added a 45-yard TD reception and three converts. The highlight of the game was Humes ‘ 65yard pass reception where he hurdled a tackler on his way to the end zone. Troung also picked off two passes as the defense held Victoria to less than 100 yards total offence. “The boys are playing at such a high level right now and we go into the final with everyone healthy,” said Sun Devils head coach Chris Smith. “We are so thrilled with our progress this year and are looking forward to the provincial final Sunday.”

SPORTS ▼ SWIMMING

Great turnout to Aquajets season opening swim meet The Kelowna AquaJets Swim Club hosted its annual KAJ Fall Classic and Jamboree swim meets this past weekend at the H20 Centre with over 300 swimmers from seven teams in the Thompson-Okanagan and Kootenay regions. The AquaJets swam 107 swimmers strong, earning top women’s, men’s and overall team scoring titles. “The team put in a fantastic effort on the weekend, one that all the parents and swimmers can be proud of. The swimmers swam well, and the officials ran a very well ran competition,” said Pete Wilkins, Jets head coach. Highlighting the weekend were eight new club records and several qualifying times. A big weekend for Molly Hill - lowering three records over the two day meet in the 400 IM and 200 fly, both were set by teammate Clarisse Obedkoff back in 2009, as well as lowering her own mark in the 1500 free. Josh Zakala also lowered one of his own

records in the men’s 800 free, breaking the nine minute mark for the first time. Breaking the oldest record of the bunch was 10 year old Max McDonald in the 200 back, replacing 31 years of history set by Jay Johnstone back in 1981. The team also saw three relay records fall: Two in the mens 1314 age category, both the 4x50 free and medley relays consisting of Josh Zakala, Sam Mcdonald, Ben Main, Noah Robertson and Kjel Cartier. The 10 and under women’s team also made their splash in the free relay with Taylor Desrosier, Hallie Jenkins, Molly Hill and Lochlyn Scott swimming well. Clarisse Obedkoff earned her third standard for Age Group Championships in the 200 fly on Saturday night, earning her qualification to the meet in Montreal in July. In the Jamboree on Sunday night, four AquaJets made their first regional qualifying time, breaking the four minute mark in the 200m IM.

Erin Epp, Cally Melnyk, Kaelyn Willms and Kael Murphy are now able to compete at regional level competitions. Young AquaJets with 100 per cent best times were: Sabrina Akins, Nicola Crichton, Megan Elkin, Sam Hayes, Lucy Hill, Hallie Jenkins, Dafne Kaynak, Evan Kohnke, Bobbi-Jo MacMillan, Miya MacNeil, Ben Main, Max McDonald, Sam McDonald, Cailin McNeely, Cally Melnyk, Julia Michl, Theo Mohamed, Julia Petrie, Amelia Rachkowski, Ella Rolleston, Noah Rubliak, Lochlyn Scott, Tegin Shefsky, Brynn Terris and Kaelyn Willms.

Club invites new racers Local skaters off to a fast start

The Kelowna Ski Club is making a move to address dropping enrolment in the club and the economic strain evident in the community. The club is lowering the entry level fees and making their programs more accessible to families on a budget. The Nancy Greene program for entry level kids 5 to 11 years old has had all registration fees cut this season and a new hot lunch program is available to make a day trip to Big White more affordable and comfortable for families. Quality, consistent coaching is the hallmark of the Nancy Greene program, according to Kelowna Ski Club coach Trevor Haaheim. “All of our coaches are certified through the Canadian Ski Coaches Federation (CSCF) and continue their education and mentoring with elite level coaches working within nour club,” said Haaheim. “Each coach is required to kupdate their coaching license yearly. We are very 0confident that with the dcoaching expertise both ,on snow and off, combined with an amazing dmountain and club culture we have all the ingredients dto produce great lifelong skiers.” n The Kelowna Ski Club has provided a venue for ethe entire family to have kfun for over 50 years; lifeelong friendships and inspiring role models are -benefits that come along with becoming a memrber, said Catherine Mar,

Kelowna’s speed skaters recently competed in the Can Am Long Track competition at the Calgary Olympic Oval featuring top skaters from United States and Canada and put in excellent skates. Rewriting personal record books proved enough to qualify for the 2012-13 Canada Cup Racing Series for several skaters. Relative newcomer to the sport, Abigail McCluskey, age 16, dropped

her 500m time from 44.5 to 42.96, her 1,000m time from 1:33.91 to 1:30.39, and her 1,500m time from 2:28.46 to 2:22.10. She also established a new 3,000m time of 5:04.73. Emilie Medland-Marchen, 18, also rewrote her personal record book by improving her 1,500m time from 2:20.61 to 2:18.99 and her 3,000m time by almost 10 seconds from 5:05.61 to 4:55.65. Kerry Bennett competed in the 500m 1000m and 1500m lowering her

500m time from 46.95 to 46.87. Up and comer, Connie Kapak, age 13, lowered her times in the 500m from 45.6 to 44:91, her 1000m time from 1:32.65 to 1:29.9, her 1500m time from 2:22.28 to 2:19.63 and her 3000m time from 5:06 to 4:53. Despite making the qualifying times, Kapak will need to wait a year to compete in the Canada Cup Series because she is too young. Instead, Kapak will race in the Canadian

Age Class Championships in February. Nick Goplen also competed close to his personal best times but withdrew after Day 1 to allow more recovery time from a major laceration to the ankle. He will return to competition in early January for the Canadian Championships. McCluskey and Medland-Marchen will compete in the Canada Cup portion of the event in early January.

al Committee, said students from Grades 4 to 11 will be competing in teams to showcase robots they have programmed to dance, play soccer, or rescue victims from an artificial disaster. Competition is expected to be tight between the middle schools, with Rutland fielding 10 teams, Springvalley eight teams, and Constable Neil Bruce another nine teams. Ould-Khessal said a key reason for the big turnout is that RoboCup has now been integrated into School District 23’s Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics (STEM) program for Grade 7 to 9 students. Returning this year are defending RoboCup Junior world champions Hudson and Nelson Schier. The two young Vernon brothers honed their skills at successive Western Canada events held at the College before impressing judges with a win in

the dance competition at the 2011 World event held in Istanbul, Turkey, where 251 teams and 951 students took part. This time the brothers will be competing separately—15-year-old Hudson will be representing Clarence Fulton Secondary School in the secondary rescue category, while 13-year-old Nelson will be representing Vernon Secondary School in the primary soccer category. Keeping up with Robo -Cup Junior spirit of friendship, teamwork and respect, Western Canada RoboCup Junior participants will wear pink T-shirts to project support for an anti-bullying message. The origins of RoboCup date back to the early 1990s when a group of experts in artificial intelligence, including many from Canada, decided to host games to highlight the emerging capabilities of robots.

In 1997 the organization introduced elementary and secondary school students to the field of robotics with the first RoboCup Junior event, which was held in Japan. Today, Canada hosts three Junior events— the largest one in B.C. at Okanagan College, with two others in Ontario and Quebec. Successful teams at the Western Canada competition will go on to the Netherlands for the world championships in June 2013. The 7th Annual Western Canada RoboCup Junior Games is sponsored by Okanagan College, Applied Science Technologists and Technicians of British Columbia, Tekmar Control Systems, and BC Hydro.

FOR THE

By Taylor Bayne, Contributor My turn! Last week, the lovely Sam gave you her take on the perfect gift guide for your very own fashioniasta. Step aside Sam, it’s my turn! I’m not sure about you, but the words ‘Christmas List’ stresses me out a little bit. Some extremely sweaty palms and pacing back and forth for so long that your dog, (R.I.P. Bailey), starts looking at you funny are things that come to mind when I think about those two devilish words. Ok, maybe I exaggerate a tad, but you must see where I am coming from. Some would say I’m picky, maybe a little indecisive. In fact, I used to be indecisive but now I’m not so sure... ha ha haa? Tough crowd! So, let’s go back to the basics. I’m here to help YOU! So you’re walking into the store, you pick up a basket and you’re on your way. First things first... if you need to ask yourself “I wonder if she/he would like this?” don’t buy it. Clearly your conscious is telling you they won’t like those throw pillows that look like their grandmother quilted, etc. Moving on! My advice... stick to things that are neutral colours. Such as nail polish. Blacks, greys, beige/ taupes, and creams are perfect. Your fashioniasta is known for her statement pieces and fashion forward outfits, so toning things down with a nail colour and make-up is generally the rule. Look for the brand OPI. Some of my specific favourites include; Hopelessly In Love, Isn’t it Romantic?, and Don’t Touch My Tutu! ... but seriously, don’t touch my tutu. Next on my list is a hardcover coffee table book. Chapters, in Orchard Park Mall, carry a variety of fashion books that are perfect for inspiration, rainy days, and of course to spruce up her coffee table! Look for books about designers; it will be your safest bet. Alexander McQueen, Karl Lagerfeld, Vogue, Chanel, the world is your oyster, and you really cannot go wrong with this item, trust me. Feel like taking a risk? Yah, you do! One item you will find in every fashioniasta purse is red lipstick. You will be overwhelmed at the amount of shades the colour red has, so to speed up the process I’ve chosen three top shades from MAC in The Bay. The first one if called Russian Red. It is perfect to pair with an everyday outfit. Ruby Woo is my second choice. This girl is definitely a statement, so save her for a night on the town. Finally, MAC red. This is such a classic red, for a classic look. BAM you’re on a freaking roll! My next item will help your fashioniasta feel relaxed and calm. lululemon athletica carries the most amazing yoga mat. It is great for beginners as well as the most intermediate yogi. The Mat has a polyurethane coating that will help her grip while she’s in downward dog as well as just the right amount of cushion for her practice. You can choose from red, blue, purple pink and black, easy peasy! So, since you’ve been following my columns every week, you probably know that studs are in this season. Earrings, bracelets, rings, purses, blouses, shoes, etc. Anything with studs, you are in the clear. The only thing you have to decide is whether she wears gold or silver. Don’t mess up! Muahah... My wish for you is to find the perfect gifts for your loved ones this Christmas. Kelowna really does have some amazing shops to find each and every one of my items, so give the gift of shopping local this year! It not only benefits our amazing community but you can find original items that she will absolutely love!

Advice on how to save geraniums from wrath of winter G eraniums are popular bedding plants, blooming freely from May to frost. Every year or two, the varieties available on the open market change as new ones are developed and old ones go by the wayside. It seems just as you get to know a particular variety and look for it again the following season it’s off the market. In the Okanagan, if they are left outside over winter that would be the end of them, but saving geraniums for the following season has been a popular activity of gardeners for ages.

FROM THE GROUND UP

Don Burnett They can be overwintered by potting up individual plants, by taking cuttings, or even by hanging the plants upside down in a cool, dry place. You can overwinter geraniums in pots by just pruning them back to one-half or one-third their original height. Then carefully dig each plant and place it in a

six-to-eight-inch pot. After potting, water thoroughly and place the plants in a bright, sunny window. Geraniums prefer cool indoor temperatures. Daytime temperatures near 18 C and night temperatures around 12 C are ideal. Geraniums become spindly when grown in poor light and warm temperatures. During their stay indoors, water the plants thoroughly only when the soil is dry. Occasionally pinch or prune the geraniums to maintain stocky, wellbranched plants.

You can overwinter your geraniums by taking cuttings. Ideally, the best time to take cuttings is in August however it can be done at this time as well. Take three to four inch cuttings by snapping them from terminal shoots. Using a knife exposes the cutting to disease entry. Pinch off the lower leaves, and then dip the base of the cuttings in a rooting hormone. Stick the cuttings in a rooting medium of sterile potting soil. Clay or plastic pots

with drainage holes in the bottom are suitable containers. Insert the cuttings into the medium just far enough to be self-supporting. Bottom heat using a heating pad or waterbed heater enhances the results. After all the cuttings are inserted, water the cuttings and medium thoroughly. To prevent wilting, place a clear plastic bag over the cuttings and container. Then place the cuttings in bright light. Rooting should oc-

down and soak the roots in water for one to two hours. Most of the leaves will fall off during the winter however the stems should remain firm or solid. Cut back the geraniums to one-third their original height and pot indoors in late winter or plant outdoors in May. This method may require soaking the plants in water to re-hydrate them before potting them up. Tune in to The Don Burnett Garden Show on AM 1150 from 8 to 10 a.m.

An age-old gardening activity is to overwinter geraniums by making them go dormant. Dig the geraniums and carefully shake all the soil from the roots. Then hang the plants upside down in a cool (712 C), dry place. During the winter months, periodically take the plants

Acupuncture an option for bringing a halt to teeth grinding while sleeping. The medical term for teeth grinding is bruxism, and nighttime teeth grinding is sleep bruxism. Bruxism, if severe

enough, can cause headaches, tooth damage and jaw problems or disorders, but it may often go undiagnosed, especially with sleep bruxism.

Symptoms of bruxism are grinding or clenching teeth, worn, flattened, chipped, or overly sensitive teeth, tight jaw or jaw pain, ear ache because

of a tight jaw, disrupted sleep, neck and shoulder tension, or headaches. Conventional medicine doesn’t entirely understand the causes of teeth grinding, however adult teeth grinding can be linked to anxiety, stress or tension, suppressed anger or frustration, or aggressive, competitive or hyperactive personalities. Other causes may be poor alignment of upper and lower teeth or the body’s natural sleep cycles. In some cases, bruxism can be a result of another disease, such as Parkinson’s or Huntington diseases. For children, teeth grinding may be due to the growth and development of teeth and jaws, and is usually outgrown by adolescence. There isn’t much that medical treatment can do to resolve teeth grinding—medications are largely ineffective but muscle relaxants may be prescribed or your doctor may consider changing one of your medications if teeth grinding is a side effect. A mouth guard may also be fitted to protect teeth while sleeping, or your dentist may correct misaligned teeth, however this may not stop the grinding. The best solutions seem to be lifestyle and behavioural changes, including reducing stress and learning to manage stress better through relaxation and exercise, and

eeth grinding is a condition of clenching, grinding, or gnashing the teeth either unconsciously during the day, or at night

NEEDLE NOTES

James Kaufman practicing an awareness of proper jaw and mouth position, with the tongue on the roof of the mouth, jaw relaxed, the teeth slightly parted, and the mouth closed. From a traditional Chinese medicine perspective, teeth grinding can be treated quite effectively with acupuncture. There are five main patterns commonly seen in this disorder. Out of these, four are considered excessive conditions where one or two organs are functioning at a higher than normal rate, commonly the heart, stomach and liver. Excess types of bruxism are typically seen in people with stress, anxiety, tension, anger and frustration, and hyperactivity or competitiveness because the hyperactive state of these organs leaves the mind and body in a restless or agitated state. Another excess pattern is caused largely by poor diet that weakens the digestion and causes food to stagnate in the digestive system, leading to the inability for a proper restful sleep, and symptoms such as feeling of oppression in the chest and stomach, no

desire to think of food, diarrhea or constipation, abdominal pain, and nighttime bruxism. The other cause of bruxism is a deficient condition of blood and qi-energy weakness. The symptoms common in this pattern are pale complexion, dizziness, vertigo, heart palpitations, pale lips and nails and disinclination to sleep. The main differentiation in this pattern is that the teeth grinding would be rather quiet, low, dull sounding, rather than rougher and louder sounding in the excess patterns. Factors that may lead to bruxism are poor diet, weak digestive system, or age. Acupuncture improves bruxism by correcting the functioning of the organs that are excessive or deficient. Points are selected along the energetic meridian of the organ in imbalance. The points can be located on the trunk, limbs, and/or face. However, points don’t have to be done on the face or jaw just because this is the area of the symptoms, although local points may be used to relieve muscle tension and pain. Some simple changes to diet and lifestyle habits are also easy, effective ways to increase the results of acupuncture.

ENTERTAINMENT ▼ SEASONAL SHOW & SALE

Artists reap some of the reward from Lake Country event Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

The Lake Country Art Gallery has a solution for artists weary of making champagne tastes in colleagues’ art meet the beer budget all too often associated with the sector. After noticing a recent article in the Capital News on the difficulties artists face being asked to donate work for free while earning a modest income, gallery curator Katie Brennan came forward to point out her gallery’s solution. In two separate events this month, the little gallery on Bottom Woodlake Road will offer up affordable solutions to buying original art, first with the Under 100 show and second with Deck the Walls. “Both are here to support artist,” she said. “If an artist brings in (his or her) own work for auction in Deck the Walls, we’re increasing their purchasing power.”

Deck the Walls allows anyone with art they want out of the house—whether it’s an older item currently sitting in a closet or a new piece an artist is hoping to move—to bring the piece down for appraisal and get it into the market. Deck the Halls was designed to take art anyone isn’t interested in owning anymore and put it up for appraisal. The gallery gets the appraisal fee—hence it’s a fundraiser—and the owner gets event dollars toward a new piece of art of their choice. Hosted at the Aspen Golf Course, the event includes tapas and wine and already has a large Jim Kalnin piece and a Gladys Goode watercolour. Also in the gallery at the moment is the Under 100 show. Originally pitched to artists as an opportunity to sell 100-inch works for under $100, it was immediately a hit when it was introduced two years

for Brennan to curate and hang. She began this show with 393 pieces and the gallery has since sold 54, though it’s also still hanging many more. “I put all 393 pieces down on the floor and

then I arrange them by colour. So I make a blue wall and green wall and a red wall and then I siphon off enough for the coffee shop (next door),” she explained. “Then once I have the colours laid out,

it’s about making a pleasing composition. It’s all done by feel at that point.” Unlike commercial galleries which typically take 50 per cent of the sale price, the event only takes 30 per cent of the

profits, giving local artists a boost for the Christmas season. Already on the walls are works by Kit Bell, Margaret Kyle, Virginia May and Jim Laing, among countless others. One piece of jewelry sits at the front door, an antler bone necklace by Lori Mairs. The Under 100 show runs through Dec. 22 at the art gallery, 10356A Bottom Wood Lake Rd., and Deck the Walls will be held 6 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 1, at the Aspen Grove Golf Club, 10303 Bottom Wood Lake Rd. The fee to ender art in Deck the Walls is $20, which includes two tickets to the event. Tickets to simply come to the evening are $5 each and everyone is invited to purchase the original works of art appraised to a maximum of $500.

▼ FOOD AND WINE

Retailers are getting in Christmas spirit L et the Christmas shopping begin. The Okanagan has so many wonderful events to attend this winter that offer fabulous local gift ideas. My friend Monika the Baker has organized the first ever-mini Christmas market day at her Bake Shop location at 115-1979 Windsor Road on Saturday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. I will be there signing cookbooks alongside my delicious friends including Deb Synnot from

and Sandrine Martin-Raffault from Sandrine French Pastry & Chocolate who will be offering mouth-watering samples. Of course, Monika will also have tasty bites to enjoy and buy. This is a great event to both pick up gifts and shop for your upcoming holiday parties. In the mood for a little winter excitement? Quails’ Gate Winery presents the first Toss the Menu dinner event on Nov. 30. Quails’ Gate market-

ing manager Rania Peters is thrilled to announce the beginning of their unique dinner series. “Imagine good friends coming together for a night of culinary enjoyment; no set menus, no formalities—just good food, good wine and great company. And maybe a twist or two: Guest chefs, blind or unorthodox tastings, featured local producers; nothing is off limits. “Each dinner’s theme is published in advance, but the menu will only be revealed when guests ar-

rive on site,” she said. The first event on Nov. 30 will be a Spanish theme. For Viva España! chef Roger and his team are crafting a mouth-watering menu with intriguing wine pairings and other Spanish surprises. This special evening of fine Spanish food and wine is $65 (plus tax). Sounds amazing. A little Latin heat is just what we need to get us through a cold November night. See Schell B2

Prince’s art snaps the mind into action: What does it mean?

T

he intriguing new show of sculptural works now on display at the Kelowna Art Gallery might make some people imagine experiments set up in a lab. Others will see metaphors for narrative, or magical transformations (think Harry Potter). And some may recall science fiction stories. Whatever you make of Richard Prince’s unusual art will give you feedback on yourself as a person. The minute viewers begin to look at the works on display, their minds will begin to consider metaphors, that is, engage in making meaning from the art. No interpretation is incorrect— there is no one right answer to making sense of Prince’s work. The show includes 10 pieces, all completed over the last 10 years by the Vancouver-based artist. Ironically, while many of his works make reference to journeys (some pieces are on wheels, others have boats or RVs and there is even a real bicycle in the show), Prince himself has always stayed nput, having taught art at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver for the last 37 years.

His work is above all visual, it should be noted, it is not illustrative of literature or theory. It is through the apprehension of the imagery in his work, that we are set on the path to musing about the meaning of the pieces. Prince has been exhibiting professionally since 1970, both nationally and outside of Canada and has work included in many public gallery collections across the country. It is exciting to have his work here in Kelowna this winter. The show is accompanied by an exhibition catalogue that reproduces each work. It is on at the Kelowna Art Gallery until Jan. 13.

A work by glass artist Bruce Taiji will be presented to Arts Award recipients The sculptural design selected to be presented as the 2013 Okanagan Arts Awards is Okanagan Refractured, a work of art by Lake Country glass artist Bruce Taiji. Taiji’s unrivalled ability to harness light and use it with creative energy has earned him some of the country’s largest commissions featuring art glass. Taiji’s winning design was announced earlier this month at the launch party for the Okanagan Arts Awards, planned for March 2. Seven artists submitted sculpture designs for consideration. Kamloops sculptor Terry Shewchuk’s design The Harlequin was the runner up.  External light enters Taiji’s Okanagan Refractured sculpture, reflects, refracts dances within. It is an abstracted, energized Okanagan vista floating in glass. The sculpture is proposed as a solid column of laminated glass, kiln cast for exterior texture, with copper and silver mirror finishes and acrylic painted multi-surfaces, then cold laminated. It is intended that the glass column wrap around the stone base leaving a front surface and /or top surface of the base available for an engraving plate. Each award sculpture is to be individually hand painted and constructed by the artist. As such, while similar in structure and motif, each will be singularly unique.

Financial tools to help Canadians manage their finances M y colleagues Ted Menzies, Minister of State (Finance), and Gail Shea, Minister of National Revenue, announced this week that Canadians will be able to save an additional $500 in their TaxFree Savings Account (TFSA) starting in 2013, raising the annual contribution limit to $5,500. TFSAs became available in 2009. Since then, Canadians have been able to earn tax-free investment income on contributions of up to $5,000 per year. TFSAs have become increasingly popular, with approximately 8.2 million Canadians having opened an account and roughly 2.5 million Canadians contributing the maximum amount in 2011. What makes the TFSA so popular? Here’s

MP’S REPORT

Ron C annan the rundown: • A TFSA is available to all Canadians, 18 years and older • Any interest, dividends and capital gains earned in a TFSA are not subject to tax • A TFSA allows you to invest in a number of types of investments, be it a high-interest savings account, mutual funds, guaranteed investment certificates, listed securities, or other types of qualified investment products • Unused TFSA contribution room is carried

forward and accumulates for future years • Funds available in your TFSA can be withdrawn tax-free at any time for any purpose. You can recontribute withdrawn amounts in the same year only if you have unused TFSA contribution room. Otherwise, you have to wait until the following year • Income earned in a TFSA and withdrawals do not affect your eligibility for federal income-tested benefits and credits; and • Contributions to a spouse’s or common-law partner’s TFSA are allowed. When the TFSA was introduced, the government announced that the $5,000 annual contribution limit would be indexed to inflation in $500 increments.

For 2013, this will be the year when the first $500 increment takes effect, which means more room for Canadians to put funds aside for their financial goals. The TFSA is a valuable way to save for the future and to save on taxes. For more information, please go to the Canada Revenue Agency at www. cra-arc.gc.ca/tfsa/.

FINANCIAL TOOLKIT

Most of us make important financial decisions for ourselves and our families. Whether it is saving for retirement, saving for a child’s education or financing a new home, the range of possible options is growing and financial products and services are becoming more sophisticated.

In 2009, the government of Canada conducted the Canadian Financial Capabilities Survey, which provided insight into the challenges Canadians face when it comes to understanding financial matters. What resulted was the Task Force on Financial Literacy, which provided recommendations to the federal government on how to strengthen the financial literacy of Canadians. The Financial Consumer Agency of Canada is playing a key role in this regard. With the dual mandate to protect and educate consumers of financial products, the FCAC delivers a host of online tools and publications, including a webbased program for high school students designed to teach skills integral to

Agriculture research grant given to OC School of Business Okanagan College professor receives national research grant to examine innovation in rural agriculture The agriculture industry in the Okanagan has a far greater positive impact on the regional economy than anyone realizes, according to a professor with Okanagan College’s School of Business who has been awarded a national grant to conduct further investigation. “The public only sees the primary products— what they don’t see is the value-added that contributes to the economy,” said Lee Cartier said. “What we’re looking at here is the industry cluster of agricultural products: wine, tree fruits, processing, manufacturers,

stainless steel fabrication, equipment manufacturing, the service and support industries, the grower supply companies—all of this is the value chain.” Cartier has received $25,000 from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada. His research will examine the region with a macro-economic focus, looking at local agriculture as an industry cluster —similar to other classic industry clusters like the Silicon Valley. What’s curious, Cartier said, is that once agriculture is examined as a cluster it becomes clear that it outpaces overall economic growth in the Okanagan—not by much, but enough to be

significant at 3.6 per cent growth, versus three per

cent growth. “What this research hopes to answer

is why this is happening,” Cartier said.

WEST

Events kick off the Yuletide season Westside Rd. ▼ GRAVEL PIT

traffic safety issues raised Wade Paterson STAFF REPORTER

Last week, Westside-Kelowna MLA Ben Stewart announced Westside Road will become safer after the province spends $4.5 million to realign, widen and install barriers along two sections of the dangerous path. But members of the North Westside Ratepayers Association who travel the road often weren’t bringing out streamers and confetti. “It sounds like a lot of money, but it’s just fractional when you consider the cost of the upgrades that need to be done—particularly in the very bad, narrow, windy areas where there are rock faces and decaying roadside,” said Diane Baldwin, president of the North Westside Ratepayers Association. During last week’s announcement, members of Ben Stewart the public told Stewart they suspected the improvements were likely related to the Westcan Gravel Pit application. But Stewart was quick to deny that theory. “There’s a connection some people have in their mind that the gravel application has some reason for road improvements—it has nothing to do with it,” said Stewart. “They are totally unrelated, other than when I got involved in the application, I said there did need to be safety improvements and I felt they should contribute. We don’t even have a deal yet, so at this point, we’re funding this out of regular tax revenue.” Stewart said the recent announcement of improvements will make “two of the worst corners” on Westside Road better. “The province, over the last two years, has committed and found almost $8 million for road and safety improvements on Westside Road.” One of the top concerns for Baldwin and other residents is the potential impact of putting more large gravel trucks on a road that is already considered too narrow for smaller vehicles in some stretches. Baldwin said one resident at last week’s meeting told a “horror story” about having to stop and reverse on Westside Road because a large vehicle carrying equipment was in his lane. She noted several others at the meeting had had similar experiences. Stewart pointed out any incidents with large vehicles up until this point has nothing to do with the proposed gravel pit. “There is no increased gravel truck activity at this time because there is no approved gravel pit,” said Stewart. “Any gravel trucks they meet today out there are basically trucks using the road as it was intended.” Stewart added regulations for hours of operation would be put in place for Westcan Gravel Pit trucks pending approval of a mining permit. wpaterson@kelownacapnews.com

West Kelowna to host snow sports event Wade Paterson STAFF REPORTER

West Kelowna will be the guinea pig for a brand new Special Olympics BC event next March. The inaugural SOBC Snow Sports Festival will bring together Special Olympics athletes from B.C. and Alberta to race in alpine skiing events at Crystal Mountain Resort and compete in cross-country and snowshoeing events at Telemark Nordic Club March 2 and 3, 2013. About 145 SOBC and 100 Special Olympics Alberta athletes and coaches are expected to travel to the Westside for the festival. West Kelowna was chosen to host the event because Crystal Mountain Resort and Telemark Nordic Club have been “extremely supportive” of SOBC, said Cari

Henri, manager of sport for the organization. Megan Grittani-Livingstone, SOBC manager of communications, said the experience of hosting the 2007 SOBC Winter Games and 2011 SOBC Snow Sport Championships makes West Kelowna a great location for the inaugural event. “This is a slightly larger competitive opportunity for athletes to come in from all over B.C., and many are coming from Alberta, to compete in a larger setting, giving them a great opportunity to show how much they’ve improved, meet other athletes, renew friendships and see coaches network as well,” said Grittani-Livingstone. Henri said the plan is to make the SOBC Snow Sports Festival an annual competition. “We’re hoping for the next two

years it will be in West Kelowna, then we’ll look to see if there are other areas, just to spread it around the province,” said Henri. According to Grittani-Livingstone, about 50 to 60 volunteers will be needed to help stage the races and provide educational opportunities throughout the event. “It’s a real amazing experience to work with Special Olympics athletes and support them in action. Volunteering is a really fun opportunity and we’d love for people to get involved,” said Grittani-Livingstone. She added there are few requirements necessary for those interested in helping out. “Generally there’s going to be a wide range of needs…it’ll be an interesting opportunity for pretty much everybody.”

Don’t be pressured into settling a personal injury lawsuit Y ou can’t unscramble an egg and you can’t “un–settle” a personal injury claim. I can’t tell you how many people have expressed regret about settling a claim prematurely.  They typically lament about how young and misinformed they had been, accepting a lowball offer, essentially compensating them for a temporary injury, for an injury that turned out to be permanent.

ACHIEVING JUSTICE

Paul Hergott The medical system is always optimistic about a full recovery. That optimism is often very well placed.   Many people do enjoy a complete recovery from

motor vehicle collision injuries. Those people are well served by accepting fair compensation for a temporary injury and putting their legal claims behind them. Unfortunately, some injuries never fully recover. I’m not just talking about serious orthopedic injuries that require plates and screws. I’m talking about standard, run-ofthe-mill whiplash type soft tissue injuries. I’m

talking about the kinds of injuries that don’t even surface until you wake up the next morning seized up in pain. There may well be excellent progress in the early stages. Range of motion might be fully restored and symptoms significantly eased. For whatever reason, though, a complete recovery is not achieved. Symptoms linger. Functional limitations are never fully overcome.

But you can’t “take back” a settlement if you have accepted fair compensation for a temporary injury that turns out to be permanent. My advice, therefore, is always to wait. There is no rush to settle your claim. Yes, there is an ultimate deadline, typically two years after a crash, within which a personal injury claim must be either settled or paperwork filed with the local court registry to preserve

your claim. This is usually plenty of time, though, to determine whether injuries will be temporary or permanent. I have recently been consulted by a person who was injured in a summer, 2012, collision. He reported good recovery from his injuries with minimal ongoing symptoms. I recommended that he wait at least until next summer before considering negotiating a settlement of his claim. Waiting through the winter months will allow him to test his recovery through the snow shoveling and ski/snowboard season. Waiting through the spring will allow for testing through the heavier physical activities of spring cleaning and gardening. Waiting into the summer months will allow him to test his recovery through the fun summer activities as well. With such a good recovery after three to four months, the prospect of waiting another eight to nine months might seem excessive. But what’s the rush? If you have been offered fair compensation for a tem-

porary injury, and it turns out eight or nine months later that indeed the injury 100 per cent completely resolved, then you can pull the trigger on the settlement at that time. On the other hand, if it turns out that your injury does not fully resolve, and that you are left with a permanent injury, then fair compensation is likely multiple times the amount you have been offered for a temporary injury.  You will be able to insist on that much higher fair compensation, commensurate with the much more significant impact that a permanent injury will have on you over the course of your lifetime. And don’t worry about the insurance company giving you a deadline to accept whatever low-ball offer they have put on the table—it’s a negotiation tactic as old as the hills that I confidently advise you to ignore.

Mt. Boucherie Secondary School Community Connection November 2012 ■ COMMUNITY AWARENESS

West Kelowna Mayor’s Youth Forum creates solutions By Allison Brown A select group of students from MBSS attended the second annual West Kelowna Mayor’s Youth Forum on Oct. 30. The event took place in the Bear Gym and in attendance were members from the West Kelowna City Council, the community and other middle school students from the Westside. The forum focused on discussing the pressing issues that youth are currently facing and the potential solutions available to them. The forum kicked off with a breakfast which was provided by the Okanagan Culinary Arts department from the high school. Everyone sat down at their designated tables and the forum began with speeches from Mayor Doug Findlater, the event

organizer, Irene Maier, and youth liaison office, Sherri Lund. The results of the forum in 2011 were discussed; the main courses of action taken were the creation of the Westside bursary and the hiring of the Westside School’s liaison officer. One of the five main topics of conversation discussed were ‘Safe Public Places to Hang Out’; the main concern being there was no homeless youth shelters/overnight places for teens to stay. A potential solution is building a shelter for youth. ‘Public Transportation’ was the second topic, one in which students were deeply concerned. The issues ranged from unsafe bussing areas to high bus fees and the potential solutions included having an adult presence and more buses at peak times. ‘Youth

Community Programs and Activities’ concern was that costs were too high and that there isn’t a variety of activities or enough division of youth. Solutions were lowering costs, offering drop-in times at school gyms and adding a youth social setting like a youth only café Another major issue was not enough ‘Communication to Youth’ and so programs that are offered aren’t known. A West Kelowna app, allowing youth to manage the social media sites were suggested solutions. Lastly, ‘Youth Recognition’ was discussed, the main concern being that there isn’t enough. Solutions were having more media promotion and an awards night. As a result of the forum, a student voice council has been started at Mount

Boucherie. They have begun to expand on the issues, solutions, and future actions from the forum. A pair of students has met with council to go in depth on these topics and they plan to meet at the upcoming council meeting to discuss them further. Overall, this event was rewarding for all involved and will hopefully benefit the community down the road.

Remembrance Day musings By Lisa Moore Remembrance Day happens once every year, and it’s a time where we all take a minute to think about the troops that have, and that still are fighting in war. The assembly at Mount Boucherie Secondary School started like every other with the cadets walking in holding flags, and the Vice Principal talking about what Remembrance Day really is and why we remember every year. The band took on one of their most challenging pieces

and performed with excellence. But it was the readers’ theater that made everyone think differently this year. Two drama students preformed a small part from the excerpt ‘Letters in War Time’. Instead of focusing on the war and death, it gave us all a new perspective. The part they read was a love story between a young man and the girl he left behind to go train for war. By showing a different part of the war, it allowed us as teenagers to understand a little better

the sacrifices our troops are truly making. We often can’t grasp exactly what it is they do, because we could never picture doing it ourselves. But by sharing a love story: something we can all relate to, it made the war seem slightly more relatable. When the readers’ theater was finished, they continued to present the wreaths on a cross. The assembly finished with a moment of silence, and I think this year everyone was reflecting in a deeper way.

REGINA MARY (BONOKOSKI) ROOZENDAAL September 6, 1932 – November 19, 2012 Death is God’s way of saying “your table is ready my good and faithful servant�. Regina passed away peacefully on November 29 with family members by her side. In spite of serious lung and liver problems, she approached each day with a smile and found joy in dedicating herself to her family, friends and the church. She ultimately succumbed to cancer following a brief hospital stay. Regina was born in Torquay, Saskatchewan, the 13th of 15 children, and will be remembered by all who knew her for her laughter, warm smile and wonderful pies. She is especially missed by her four children: Pattie Roozendaal, Mary-Lou (Don) Huculak, Sam (Patti) Roozendaal, Maureen (Dave) Drake; six grandchildren: Alyssa, Richie, Stephanie, Siemon, Anna and Marc; four surviving sisters and brother in Saskatchewan; as well as many nieces and nephews in the Bonokoski family. A Prayer Service was held on Friday, November 23 at 7:00 p.m. and a Funeral Mass was celebrated on Saturday, November 24 at 2:00 p.m., both at Immaculate Conception Church, 839 Sutherland Ave., Kelowna, BC. As an expression of sympathy, memorial donations may be made to The Seton House of Prayer, 5819 Chute Lake Road, Kelowna, BC, V1W 4L5. Condolences may be sent to the family by visiting www.springfieldfuneralhome.com, 250-860-7077.

TADLA, NADA “NUDDIE� Fell asleep in Jesus on November 19, 2012 at the age of 96. She is survived by her loving family: son Ernie(Cora); daughter Leona (Ross) Wilkinson, 4 grandchildren, 5 great grandchildren and one sister Anne Baker. Sadly, Nuddie is predeceased by her husband Fred in 1995. There will be an opportunity to pay your last respects and to visit with the family on Friday, November 30, 2012 from 7:00pm to 8:00pm in the chapel of Springfield Funeral Home, 2020 Springfield Road, Kelowna, BC. A Funeral Service will be held on Saturday, December 1st, 2012 at 3:00pm at the Kelowna Seventh Day Adventist Church, 1130 Springfield Road, Kelowna, BC. Condolences may be sent to the family by visiting www.springfieldfuneralhome.com 250-860-7077.

MCFARLANE, OLIVER FRANCIS Passed away suddenly at his home on Sunday, November 25, 2012 at the age of 91. Survived by his children: Jean (Lorne) Carncross of Surrey, Patrick (Maureen) of Kelowna, Bob (Nancy) of Oyama, Marilyn (Rob) Russell of Nanaimo; grandchildren: Michael, Nicole (Kelly), Meghan, Shea, Shannon and great granddaughter Samantha. Sadly predeceased by his wife Audrey in 2001, brothers Alex and Jackie. A graveside service for the immediate family will take place. An open house for family and friends will be held on Monday, December 3, 2012 from 2 – 4 pm at 3139 Benvoulin Road. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to BC Heart & Stroke Foundation, #4 – 1551 Sutherland Ave., Kelowna, BC V1Y 9M9 or Cancer Centre for the Southern Interior, 399 Royal Avenue, Kelowna, BC, V1Y 5L3.

ARE YOU READY TO BUY A HOME? FIRST - Do you have the financial resources? You should have five percent of the purchase price of a home for the down payment, but ideally even more. Are there other priorities in your life e.g. starting a new business, which require your savings? If not, buying a home should be on your radar. SECOND - Do you expect to stay in your new home for some time? Moving can be expensive and you will want to build some equity before having to relocate. Your job and home life should be stable.
