Winter conditions lead to tragic accident on Hwy 97

AN AMBULANCE travels southbound on Highway 97 beside Wood Lake on Wednesday afternoon, departing from the scene of an accident that saw a single vehicle veer off the road and crash into Wood Lake, killing the driver.

Hockeyville highway sign ‘hardly a done deal’ Findlater said residents seem to take issue with two key points. “People don’t want a big bold sign, or people think the Hockeyville money should be directed to something more directly related to hockey,” said Findlater. “To me, it seems like a lot of money for a sign, over and above the Hockeyville money. I’m certainly willing to take a hard look at it.” That hard look will take place when council sits down for its annual budget deliberations in January. “What we have to keep in context: That motion was not to go out and buy

the sign and put it up…(it was) to consider it as part of overall budget deliberations. So it’s hardly a done deal.” The mayor noted there is still a need for a highway sign directing drivers to Mount Boucherie Community Complex. “That’s a very common complaint— people who aren’t familiar with the area can’t find the school, can’t find the arena, can’t find City Hall. “I do think there has to be something done about that. I doubt that a $125,000 sign is the answer to that; there may very well be more modest solutions.” wpaterson@kelownacapnews.com

It seems as though West Kelowna’s mayor may be having second thoughts about how the district’s $25,000 Hockeyville prize money is spent. All councillors present at the Nov. 27 district meeting voted to put the $25,000 toward the consideration of the installation of an electronic highway sign in the 2013 capital budget deliberations. At the time, Mayor Doug Findlater said the sign could be a “community billboard that brings people together.”

But after hearing some public feedback, his view on the sign proposal may be changing. “I sense it hasn’t been a popular position,” said Findlater. “I’m aware of the letters and I’ve had some people I know…say, ‘I think you should do something different.’” So far, the district has received 12 letters regarding the Hockeyville billboard. The feedback is far less than the 70 letters it received last April regarding its contentious Mobile Vending Policy, which didn’t allow ice cream trucks to play music while in West Kelowna.

Kelowna Mounties have confirmed one woman is dead after her Jeep TJ veered off Highway 97 into the frigid waters of Wood Lake early on Wednesday afternoon. Police say the 58-yearold woman from Salmon Arm was headed north when her vehicle began to fishtail, left the road and plunged into Wood Lake. An unconfirmed report described the vehicle as being 90 per cent submerged about 15 feet off the Wood Lake shoreline, opposite Ponderosa Road. Passing motorists attempted to pull the vehicle from the water using ropes and chains attached to a commercial truck but the rope snapped and the Jeep rolled back into the water. When a Lake Coungry emergency marine rescue crew arrived they stabilized the car and entered the water. Several attempts to extricate her were not successful, but with assistance from bystanders they eventually removed the driver from the vehicle and transferred her to a waiting ambulance but she could not be revived. At least two others were reported to be getting treatment at the scene for hypothermia; however, police confirmed the driver was the only person in the vehicle. Police say the coroner was called to the scene as was a traffic accident reconstructionist. Capital News staff.

Two malnourished snowy owls, recently found in Kelowna, have been released back into the wild after being brought back to health by an organization in the South Okanagan that looks after sick and injured birds of prey.

ICBC promotes use of steering locks to foil carjackers CHRISTINE SILVER, ICBC road safety coordinator

Alistair Waters ASSISTANT EDITOR

ICBC is teaming up with the Kelowna RCMP and local crime prevention volunteers to give away 200 free steering wheel locks here in a bid to curb an increase in stolen vehicles. According to the insurance corporation, while overall auto crime in B.C. is on the decline, vehicle thefts increased by three per cent in Kelowna and a whopping 80 per cent in West Kelowna in the first six months of 2012, compared to 2011. Break-ins also rose by 36 per cent in Kelowna and 47 per cent in West Kelowna during the first six months of 2012 compared to 2011. “We were way up and then way down and now its up again,” said local RCMP Supt. Bill McKinnon about the surprising jump in the number of vehicle thefts here. He said much of the increase can be blamed on a few prolific offenders, some of whom the police have caught in recent

months. On Tuesday, with Transportation Minister Mary Polak on hand, ICBC officials demonstrated how easy steering locks are to use and said because pre-2001 models are most commonly stolen, the first 200 people who own pre-2001 cars

and trucks will be given the free locks. Community police volunteers will provide the free steering wheel locks, while supplies last, to local residents who own two targeted models, as well as other pre-2001 vehicles that are not already equipped with an anti-theft de-

vices. Residents can obtain a steering wheel lock by bringing their vehicle registration to claim the police offices to: • The Mission community policing office at 4065 Lakeshore Dr. in Kelowna • The Rutland community policing office at

115 McIntosh Rd. in Kelowna • The West Kelowna RCMP Detachment at 2390 Dobin Rd. in West Kelowna. The most common vehicles targeted by thieves in Kelowna and West Kelowna have been pre2001 Honda Civics and

pre-2008 Ford and Dodge pickup trucks, according to ICBC. “We want everyone to have a safe and happy Christmas season with their families, and to avoid the unnecessary stress of auto theft, especially at this time of year,” said Polak, who was given a demonstration of how the locks work. “This means remembering to have a good anti-theft device on your vehicle, and locking up your valuables, especially if you’ve done some holiday shopping. ICBC’s Operation Lock Up is a great campaign which reminds drivers to be proactive and protect their vehicles from getting stolen.” In addition to the Kelowna area, there are five other across B.C. where there will be similar give-

aways. Polak said the $3,000 cost of the steering locks is substantially lower than the amount the insurance company has to pay out for stolen vehicles. “Steering wheel locks are one of the most effective tools to use as a deterrent for car thieves,” said Const. Kris Clark, Kelowna RCMP media relations officer. “We’re continuing to bring down auto theft rates, but older model vehicles are still being targeted.” In addition to using an anti-theft device, you can protect yourself from auto crime by parking in secure, well lit areas, removing valuables from your vehicle, always locking your vehicle and keeping your keys in a safe place. awaters@kelownacapnews.com

United Airlines has late start to first flight from Los Angeles Alistair Waters ASSISTANT EDITOR

A direct flight between Kelowna and Los Angeles is no longer a case of California dreamin’. United Airlines, through its United Express offshoot, has started its long-awaited year-round daily service between the two cities. The first flight from LA was to arrive in Kelowna around 10 p.m. Tuesday but a delay resulted in it not getting here until about 1 a.m. Wednesday. As a result, because of mandatory rest time for the crew, the return flight to LA did not leave Kelowna until around 12:30 p.m. Wednesday, about 4.5 hours late. The late arrival and departure was caused by what airport officials called operational delays. They expected

Wednesday’s flight from LA to be on time. Despite that glitch, a gathering at the airport Tuesday night were happy the service has finally started. “This is an important milestone for YLW and the entire Okanagan,” said Kelowna Mayor Walter Gray. “This opens the doors for a greater business reach while giving the leisure traveller more opportunities to head south, as well as to bring those not from the Thompson Okanagan here to experience what our region has to offer.” Politicians, business leaders and tourism officials from throughout the Thompson Okanagan gathered at the airport to celebrate the arrival of the inaugural United flight from Los Angeles Tuesday night. The schedule calls for flights to ar-

rive from LA at 10 p.m., having left around 6:30 p.m., from LAX and depart for Los Angeles from Kelowna at 8 a.m. the next morning. LAX is the sixth busiest airport in the world and the third busiest in the U.S. LAX becomes the second U.S. hub airport with daily service to and from Kelonwa, joining Seattle’s SeaTac airport. There is also seasonal service to and from Las Vegas and Phoenix. The local airport is believed to now be eyeing direct regular service to and from San Francisco. During the gathering Tuesday night, political leaders representing the Thompson Okanagan praised the expanded air service and B.C.’s Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure Mary Polak, who was also on hand, congratulated the locals who

made it happen. “And thank you to United Airlines for believing in Kelowna and B.C. as a great place to do business,” she said. Airport director Sam Samaddar said the introduction of the daily flights between L.A. and Kelowna represent a huge economic impact to this region. “On average, each daily flight to LA provides 16 person years of employment and $1 million in wages annually,” he said. “As the airport continues to provide air service to more destinations, the ripple effect of the economic benefit will be felt from Osoyoos to Sun Peaks to Revelstoke.” Other speakers, such as Lane Merrifield, executive vice-president of Disney Interactive Worlds and cofounder of Club Penguin, as well as Anthony Lewis of Vibrant Vines Vineyard, spoke about the benefits the

new United daily flights will present to the business community.  “The Vibrant Vine is a strong believer in that the whole is greater than the sum,” said Lewis. “Together we should focus on building and strengthening relationships within the wine, ski and golf industries. The only thing that can stand in the way of reviving an ongoing flood of Los Angeles tourists is if we don’t work together and properly market and package our products in a way that makes it easy to experience all that our amazing area has to offer.” Many of the people who arrived from Los Angeles Tuesday were heading to ski at Big White, as the ski resort has been marketing itself in the southern California area in recent months in anticipation of the flights starting up.

Police save man’s life

Two Kelowna RCMP officers are being credited for helping to save a man’s life Tuesday after they performed CPR until paramedics could take over. Monday afternoon, police were informed a 64-year-old man had intentionally overdosed at a residence on the 1400 block of Leaside Avenue. There was no response at the door when the officers arrived but they found a way in through an attached residence. The individual was unconscious and unresponsive, and had no vital signs when the officers did their initial assessment. They began CPR immediately, sticking with the effort for several minutes until ambulance paramedics arrived at the scene. The paramedics were able to revive the man and rushed him to hospital where he remains in serious condition. The paramedics are crediting the initial efforts by the police officers for saving the man’s life.

Armed pub patron Trades training equipment upgrade at OC arrested by police A Kelowna man faces multiple weapons charges after he was arrested in a pub with a loaded handgun on Saturday evening. On Dec. 15, at 6:45 p.m., the Kelowna RCMP responded to a report of a man with a gun at the Willow Park Pub, located at 590 Highway 33 West. When police arrived, the man was found seated at the bar with a loaded .45 calibre pistol tucked in the back of his pants as well as a knife hanging from a chain around his neck. He was arrested without incident and the firearm and knife were seized. A second handgun was later seized from the man’s residence. Ryan Bradley Allin, 29, was found to be prohibited from possessing a firearm and was held in custody to appear in court on Dec. 17. He remains in custody at this time. Allin faces 13 weapons charges in relation to this incident including: two counts each of possessing a weapon for a dangerous purpose, carrying a concealed weapon, unauthorized possession of a firearm, knowingly possessing a firearm without a license, possessing a weapon obtained through offence, possession of a firearm contrary to order and possessing a restricted firearm with ammunition, Allin was scheduled to appear in court again on Dec. 18.

The B.C. government is investing more money in skills training at Okanagan College. Following a series of announcements of funding for trades training at the college, including $28 million to refurbish and expand its existing trades training facilities, Victoria said Wednesday it will provide $867,000 worth of equipment for OC. The funding is part of a $17-million province-wide Skills and

Training Plan investment to support public post-secondary institutions to upgrade equipment and put the latest tools in the hands of B.C. students. “It’s important that students have access to the latest equipment necessary to get the fullest benefit from their studies,” said Kelowna-Mission MLA Steve Thomson. Institutions will also pursue partnerships with local industries and other

create 110 seats over the coming year, including training in mining, oil and gas related supervision and safety, and green building design, among others. “Continued investment in equipment is vital to ensuring that Okanagan College students and apprentices are afforded the best quality training,” said Jim Hamilton, president of Okanagan College. “They need to be prepared for the workplace…”

By Sam Hill, Contributor So you’re hosting a holiday party? So you enjoy stress and working your butt off to make others’ holiday magical? Fear not! I have the solution and it goes by the name of Pinterest! I’m not going to pretend that I’m a holiday party expert, I can hardly use an oven and cleaning isn’t really my forte either, but the funky ideas that I have found on Pinterest inspire me to be a better hostess! If you don’t know what Pinterest is, please come out from under your rock and go to www.pinterest.com. This website offers thousands of great pictures and ideas about anything and everything, from parties to hairstyles to decorating to recipes. I have chosen just a few of my favourite holiday pins to get you well on your way to a fun and fabulous holiday party! Hot Cocoa Bar: Give your guests the opportunity to make their own little creation by providing them with everything that they could possibly want in their hot cocoa. Set up a hot cocoa bar with pails or cups full of marshmallows, peppermint sticks, caramels, sprinkles, cinnamon, and maybe even some Bailey’s if you’re really stressed out! Don’t forget a big pot of hot chocolate… that would be a hostess no-no! Dressy Treats: There is no better time of year to get your creative juices flowing and make the cutest little treats ever! Even if you’re baking skills are non-existent and the taste is soso, at least they’ll look good! Kidding, definitely try to make them taste good, and by that I mean swallow your pride and ask Grama for help. Whether you’re making festive cupcakes, a brownie Christmas tree, or – my favourite – snowmen ice cream cups, just add some holiday flair to your baking! Décor: Ladies! This is the only time of year when it is acceptable to over-do it with home décor, so go nuts. Hang those stockings with care, deck the halls with boughs of holly, and don’t you dare forget that mistletoe. Try to stick to a colour theme, such as red and green or silver and blue, so that you don’t overwhelm your guests. One simple and easy holiday décor tip is to put your leftover tree ornaments in a pretty glass dish. Home Sense is a great place to find nice glassware. This ensures that you don’t go overboard on the tree and that you have a statement piece for your mantel or table. Reindeer Dust: My final and favourite tip is not one that I found on Pinterest, although I’m sure there is a recipe on there for it as well. A few years ago my younger cousin stayed with us for Christmas and to boost her holiday spirit we made Reindeer dust to sprinkle in the yard so that Santa’s reindeer would find her at our house. If you are hosting a Christmas Eve party with children this is a great way to get their spirit at an all time high. Just mix some oatmeal flakes with glitter, sprinkles and sugar and have them spread it around the yard. Tell them that this magical reindeer dust can be seen from way up in the sky and will ensure that Santa and his reindeer don’t miss the house! Good luck with all of your holiday parties! I hope that my tips and Pinterest are helpful in leaving a lasting impression on your guests. Happy Hostessing!

Home-based fitness facility opened for Black Mountain area DeHart from A7 purchased Kelowna Auto Pro (formerly Andy’s Wheel Alignment) located right next door to their shop. The two amalgamated businesses will now be known as Tirecraft Auto Pro. Both companies and their owners have longtime business roots in the city. The KP Tirecraft franchise has been in operation since 1977, with Randy and Al taking over running the business from their father, Bill. Kelowna Auto Pro was owned by Glen and Karen Baron and Gary Withers. Their business originated on Lakeshore Road as the Bluebird Station and was owned and operated by Gary and Karen’s father. For almost 30 years, these two businesses have worked side by side. The new enterprise will continue to operate as a family owned operation with Glen, Karen and Gary still working alongside Randy and Al.  Kelowna Auto Pro offers, oil changes,

alignments, and all brake and mechanical maintenance. KP Tirecraft has brands such as Yokohama, Toyo and Michelin. Randy tells me that Glen, Karen and Gary are happier now that they will have more time off. Call 250-860-3993.  The Kelowna Yacht Club has a new board of directors of 2013 consisting of: Elton Ash (Commodore), Chuck Robertson (Immediate Past Commodore), Mike Terris (Vice-Commodore), Murray Ramsden (Rear Commodore), Henry Harlos (Fleet Captain), Shannon Gall (Staff Captain), Brett Wike (Treasurer), Jane Bowering (Secretary) and directors Dot Schoneberg, Doug Harpold, Nancy Thompson, Lisa McHaffie, John Sharples and Ken Smith.

Complementary fitness assessments are available. Purchase options can be single sessions, session packages or monthly packages based on training days per week. Call 250-215-7120; Rhonda@results4lifefitness.com.   The Southern Interior Construction Association was established in 1969 as a non-profit society formed to act on behalf of their member construction companies in the Interior. The association lob-

bies local and regional government regarding public capital project issues affecting their members and delivers education and training programs for members and non-members in areas of safety, regulation and construction skills and development. In partnership with the B.C. Construction Association, SICA and the other regional construction associations have developed an online plan room facility called BidCentral, intended to centralize and facilitate on-line access to project information, project drawings and to ensure ease and confidentiality in the bid process. The latest evolution of BidCentral is to expand from public sector projects to include the design community. To that end, SICA is enjoying an increase in new members in the architectural and engineering sectors. Bill Everitt is the CEO of SICA, based out of 104-151 Commercial Dr. in Kelowna. Call 250-491-7330 ; weeveritt@sica.bc.ca.

If you would like to learn Spanish in three days, in a fun and easy way, the course being offered by Shawn and Suzanne Bandick might just be the thing you are looking for. Offered on Jan. 4, 5, and 6, the course classroom sessions run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day (two hour lunch on your own) in the Re/Max Kelowna meeting room, 100-1553 Harvey Ave. The Bandicks spent 10 years in Mexico and struggled to learn Spanish. This course changed everything for them and now they speak fluent Spanish. They became teachers because of a desire to empower others and to help them avoid the struggle they went through at first. Imagine learning to speak a new language with ease in such a short amount of time. I met Shawn and Suzanne when they were in Kelowna last year.

Politics drive gender sessions

O

ne could just imagine the complaints and claims of discrimination if a male premier decided to meet only with men and closed the doors to members of the other gender. But it’s apparently OK for Premier Christy Clark to get together only with women, as she did in Vernon and Kelowna last Friday, and leave men sitting on the sidelines. The explanation from Clark’s office is “she works in a man’s

world,” and these women-only sessions provide her with a different point of view. Now there is no question that the political and business worlds continue to be dominated by men, and women may focus on some different issues of importance than their male counterparts. But there are also likely a number of similar concerns, including the economy, job creation, education and health care. Those topics go beyond gender. Clark has suggested that

half of the population isn’t well represented when it comes to access to the premier, but how many male residents in the North Okanagan feel their needs have been represented by this government? And if Clark truly wants to address issues of concern and open dialogue with constituents, shouldn’t her local representative be involved? But because of his gender, MLA Eric Foster had to leave the room. Despite the image Clark is trying to portray, these gender-

based, invitation-only meetings are more indicative of a government in trouble. The Liberals only have the support of 21 per cent of women in B.C., according to a recent poll, while the NDP has 52 per cent. Clark is trying to prop up her popularity before voters head to the polls in the spring. Ultimately, it will be interesting to see if the premier’s actions resonate with women or if women just see this as another case of politicians pandering to them.

CNA DIVISION

Member of the British Columbia Press Council

Gun control measures in the U.S. will remain a hardsell

M

y experience with guns has been limited in my lifetime. I grew up in the Lower Mainland and my lone experience with a gun was at a police shooting range. My friend’s dad was an RCMP cop, and he took us out to the police shooting range one day. The only lasting memory from that was when my friend’s younger brother accidentally pointed the barrel of a handgun in his face, for which he was quickly reprimanded by his dad for doing so. I can’t remember whether or not the pistol was loaded at that very moment. My own dad sometimes talked about me missing out on the experience he had growing up on an Alber-

at farmstead, of being able to take a gun out in the fields and shoot gophers. Not much opportunity for that growing up in the city. I asked my parents many times for a pellet gun but they wouldn’t budget on that one. The answer was always no. So, in the years since, the whole gun debate kind of passed me by beyond what exposure I had as a working journalist covering different aspects of that issue. From that, I did gain an appreciation for hunters, something that city

folk still get up in arms about. But over time it has become apparent to me that controlling the use and sale of guns, particularly in the U.S., is long past Barry without some kind of Gerding recall. There are millions of weapons out there in that country that nobody has a bead on outside of the people who own them. So gun control becomes something of an oxymoron for Americans beyond any extreme recall measures. The shooting of 20 kindergarten and Grade 1 students in the Connecticut hamlet of Newtown last Friday

EDITOR’S NOTE

may or may not be a gamechanger for that argument south of the border. It’s not the first school in the U.S. to be shot up, but the idea of kids that age being executed in a helpless fashion, and that many more could have died based on the volume of ammunition the shooter was packing, should hit a nerve with people. Schools are supposed to be a sanctuary for kids to learn, not a shooting gallery for anyone armed with military-style guns. But the reality of the Newtown shooting hit home when my kindergarten aged daughter was sent home with a letter from the school on Mondah outlining her school’s evacuation procedures should the terror of what those New-

town parents and kids faced reach our community. It was pretty tough to watch the media coverage of the events in Newtown in recent days, but it revealed the reality of how the protection of personal freedoms relating to gun ownership in the U.S. means children have to die to preserve a political point that has long since lost its relevance. As the Newtown events fade into history and the news cycle moves on, whether enough momentum will carry on to force politicians to address more effective gun control, and mental health resources, measures remains to be seen. But it likely will remain, sadly, an uphill battle. bgerding@kelownacapnews.com

LETTERS

Many ways to help out the unemployed To the editor: I never thought this could happen to me. I’ve worked hard all my life. I was fortunate to be able to purchase a home and lovingly restore it into a charming bungalow and with enough land to enjoy a wonderful lifestyle—dogs, stray cats, chickens and even achieved my life long dream of owning a horse. But, as it does, life went a different direction. My position at the university was eliminated and I never was able to replace the comfortable income I had enjoyed. After years of depleting my savings I find myself, this Christmas, with my last $200 in the bank. No way to pay my mortgage, bills or feed my animals come January. I have my beloved home up for sale and have for a while. I’ve dropped the price significantly hoping not to go into foreclosure and to pass on this wonderful home to another family or person who will love it as much as I do. I share this, not to garner sympathy, but to establish that I am a bit of an expert on this issue.

So, on to my recommendations—and trust me I have experienced them all. 1. Don’t judge. Even if someone has made decisions that you wouldn’t make, you don’t know all the facts or reasons why they are unemployed or spending what money they have left. It is highly likely they are doing their very best with this situation. 2. Don’t tell people what to do. This one annoys me intensely. Do you really think I haven’t thought of all of these things myself? It’s insulting to my intelligence, disrespectful and actually makes a person feel much worse. 3. Don’t tell people everything will be OK. To keep your chin up. Be positive. I truly know I will be OK, even if I lose everything in life that I value I am still who I am and I will be OK. But allow me to feel my feelings about the possible losses that I am facing. Do not shut someone down emotionally because you feel helpless to help them. Ok, enough of the

negative. So what can you do? 1. Invite people over for dinner. It’s a great way to give someone some food without it feeling like charity. My friends are great at this—it gets me out of my head for a while, provides me with a meal and companionship with friends who really care about me. Send them home with a plate of leftovers if you can. You’d be amazed how far that extra plate of food can go at home when you add a bit of rice or potatoes. 2. Be respectful when offering help. Don’t make assumptions about what people need. When I was first unemployed I was depressed but OK financially. My sister contacted someone she knew and asked her to provide me with some groceries. I was so embarrassed. I really appreciated the thoughtfulness of the person who brought me those groceries but what I needed emotional support from my sister, not food. The best question I have ever heard from a friend was: “How can I support you?” Listen, and if you can, follow through

on what would be most helpful to that person. 3. Listen and listen again. Sometimes I need to share what my fears are, my feelings of loss, real or imagined. I’ve noticed that some people are uncomfortable with this. I sense that they think I am hinting for money when I talk about my financial concerns or asking them to solve my problems. I’m most definitely not. I have always solved my own problems but I do need emotional support along the way. For the fellow unemployed: If you come across people who tell you what to do, judge you or are uncomfortable with your feelings, even if they are family, don’t share your struggles with them. While many are well intentioned these people will actually make things much worse for you. 4. Give anonymously. What ever it is, if it’s given anonymously a person can appreciate the gift without any sense of shame or embarrassment. And it’s fun! I used to give an amount of money to various churches at Christmas time and ask

that it be given to a struggling single parent with the instructions that the money was a gift and intended for something fun. They never knew who gave it and I treasure the enjoyment that I received for being the giver. 5. Do call up any contacts you might have and if you can honestly give a good referral for that person, do it. I’ve told everyone I know that I’m looking for work and I have received a few referrals for jobs that I actually got interviews for. We don’t expect someone to give us a job but if you can give us an opportunity to compete for a job this is tremendously helpful. 6. If you yourself are unemployed, volunteer to help others. Even if you don’t have any money can you build something, clean a house, have tea with someone elderly, and make a phone call to someone who’s depressed? Remember, you’re never completely broke as long as you can give. Diane Wilde, Kelowna

and the cadre of bureaucratic sycophants ministering to the wishes of the RDCO board and dancing to the self-interested tune of one Troy DeSouza, legal counselor for a number of regional districts engaged in dangerous dog destruction orders. Mr. DeSouza makes it his business to “advise” regional districts on how to proceed with court actions when owners of “dangerous” dogs decide to fight for the lives of their animal companions. In the case of the RDCO’s “dangerous” dog Diesel—a dog that has been assessed by Mr. Gary Gibson, a highly respected dog assessment professional, as not aggressive—the owner has engaged legal counsel and is appealing a recent court ruling that his dog be destroyed. He is willing to take his appeal to the Supreme Court if need be. And what of this dangerous dog—a dog that has been confined for nearly two years in the pound facility in Kelowna? Apparently, Diesel never bit anyone. Diesel never attacked any person. Diesel did defend himself when

another dog attacked him. The RDCO has taken an intractable position with regard to this case. Instead of entering into negotiations with Mr. Smith, they have decided to fight in court for the right to destroy this dog. Why are they so intent on throwing away tax money to pursue such an illogical course of action when there are other options legally available to the RDCO and are far more civilized? In October, 2012 the RDCO was advised in a review done by their independent consultant—a review of their dog control authority—that they should be negotiating consent orders. They are now doing so in new cases but not in the case of Diesel. The reason, it seems to me, is two-fold: First, they are being advised by their legal counsel Troy DeSouza; and, second, because the AG has decided to cover the court costs on behalf of the RDCO and make this a “test” case. A test case for what? A long tie up in the courts for what? Forcing Mr. Smith to pay huge court costs for what? And keep-

ing Diesel in “jail” for years for what? So Mr. DeSouza can make a pile of money? So the arrogant members of the RDCO board can say they “won”? Of what benefit is it to the province of British Columbia to have the AG spend this money on attempting to kill one dog—a dog that has never bitten one person? To simplify the matter, this is an appalling misuse of taxpayer money at a time when the province is calling for austerity. This

To the editor: It seems that there is a strange disconnect between what the Liberal ministers in the B.C. government have to say concerning the need for austerity and cut-backs, and the actions in which these same ministers engage, throwing taxpayer money into irresponsible endeavours. On the one hand, the B.C. government talks about cuts and cutbacks, ensuring that the citizens of British Columbia are kept fearful of the province’s imminent financial doom unless government services are curtailed so the province can “save money.” On the other hand, the province, in this case specifically the Attorney General, thinks nothing of throwing away $50,000 in taxpayer money to support the persecution of one hapless dog owner and one hapless dog in the Regional District of Central Okanagan. The reason for this expenditure? Mr. Smith, the dog’s owner, had the temerity to oppose his dog’s destruction order by the local dog control officer

▼ MLA’S REPORT

Have a safe and merry Christmas Keep a lookout for problem signs in schools I MLA’S REPORT

Steve Thomson September 2010 launch of the Immediate Roadside Prohibition Program, the number of alcohol-related motor vehicle deaths has decreased by 46 per cent. This gives peace of mind that while walking or driving home late at night, that car coming the other way is less likely to be under the control of an impaired driver. It means hundreds of people who made it home, and will make it home, to their loved ones safely. It means many more happy memories, which were not shattered by a drunk driver. Recently, an independent study compared driver impairment in our province in June 2010 with June 2012. The

study found 44 per cent fewer drivers blew at or over the “warning” level, a blood-alcohol content of 0.05 percent. Likewise, nearly 60 per cent fewer drivers were over the Criminal Code threshold of 0.08 percent.  This same survey of B.C. drivers demonstrated an increased level of awareness of and support for the tough sanctions under our driver impairment laws. It shows that deterrence works. While deterrence is important, enforcement of the law is a key component. I would like to acknowledge the fine work done by our police officers to remove drunk drivers from the roads. These individuals dedicate their lives to keeping our communities safe and deserve our gratitude. I would also like to acknowledge community groups who are taking action on this important issue, including Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD). Another organization, Designated

Driver Dads, helps youth get home safe on weekends, with their vehicles. I’d like to extend my appreciation to these selfless individuals for their dedication to the community. For more information, visit their website at www.designateddriverdads.com. Yet, despite this significant progress, impairment remains one of the leading causes of motoring fatalities in our communities.  Over this holiday season, please consider your driving habits and look after each other. Plan ahead for how you’re going to get home. Call a taxi, or take the fast-track to Santa’s “good list” by volunteering to be the designated driver. Drinking and driving is NOT worth the risk. I sincerely wish you all a happy and safe holiday with your loved ones, and all the best in the New Year. Steve Thomson is Kel owna-Mission MLA and forests, lands and natural resources minister.

T

he tragedy at Sandy Hook elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut this past week hits home when you work at a school, regardless of whether the students are six-years-old or young adults. Post-secondary institutions in Canada have seen similar violence, such as at Montreal’s Ecole Polytechnique where 14 women died, and Concordia University where an associate professor killed four of his colleagues. Canada has had 13 school shootings since 1975. All of these occurred at high schools, colleges or universities.  In total, 26 people have died in this country as a result of school shootings. In comparison, since 1975, there have been 64 school shootings in the United States. The most notable was Columbine where 15 people died and Virginia Tech where 33 lost their lives. In total, during this time, 514 fatalities occurred as the result of school shootings in the United States. Most of those—366 deaths— occurred between 1992 and 2000. Another more alarming U.S. statistic is that during the school year 1998/99, 3,523 students were expelled for bringing a firearm to school. Statistics like these make Canadians wonder why some Americans still strongly believe in the Second Amendment, which enshrines their

right to bear arms in their constitution. But blaming guns when it comes to these kinds of tragedies is just part of the picture. From what I have learned in the last three years, it’s more about recognizing the warning signs when it comes to individuals capable of this kind of violence. About three years ago, I took a course along with a number of my colleagues, taught by Kevin Cameron, a noted Canadian threat assessment expert. According to Cameron, most people just don’t snap and go out and start shooting people. Exhibiting violent behaviour is an evolutionary process. There are often a number of signs that trained individuals can recognize and through intervention can usually stop something terrible from happening. Behaviour by those most likely to commit a violent act include previous violent behaviour with intent to harm or kill, verbal or written threats to kill or harm, possession of a weapon (even if it’s a replica), bomb threats (including making a bomb), fire setting, sexual intimidation or assault, and gang related intimidation

and violence. All of these behaviours are warning signs that an intervention should occur. Since Cameron’s training, Okanagan College has implemented a violence threat/risk assessment protocol. Part of the protocol was the creation of a security manual which provides information on how to identify high risk behaviours and the need to report this behaviour, procedures in regards to bomb threats, weapons and lethal violence which may involve contact with the police. Along with establishing what to look for, the college created a number of internal regional assessment teams. These teams are trained to review and assess individual cases and determine the next plan of action. Action may range from just reporting to pushing the issue to the Institutional Steering Committee, which has special training in dealing with violent behaviour and will consult the RCMP if necessary. Okanagan College isn’t the only institution in Canada that has developed these types of protocols. All schools try to ensure there are mechanisms in place to provide the safest environment possible for students and staff. It’s not an easy task, but it’s something that can’t be taken for granted.

A new year, a new plan for New Year’s Eve. Kelowna will launch into 2013 New York-style, but not just because we’re incredibly classy. The New York New Year’s Eve is the city’s family event on the waterfront. It has been nearly a decade since the last citywide event and, as Festival’s Kelowna hones in on how to develop a fantastic, kid-friendly celebration into more of a First Night affair, anyone in Jim Stuart Park this year will be able to enjoy music, a light show with strobes and fireworks and snow games. The trick of the event is that it’s set to run on the same clock as the iconic New York countdown so that children can celebrate without being out too late. How did Kelowna get so lucky? “It was the impetus of one of my staff, Ryan Donn, who spoke to me about it in the fall when we had just finished our summer activities,” said Renata Mills, Festivals Kelowna executive director. “We had just finished everything and were ready for the break, but he pushed for it.” The pair figured out how to pull together a simple event without overloading the organization and the board of directors at Festivals Kelowna, which remains under the city umbrella for at least one more year, loved the concept. As such, the New Years at Stuart Park celebration will run 6 to 9 p.m. and include snowman building and simple games, a New Year’s countdown and landbased fireworks (as opposed to the Canada Day ones done from a barge). The Merkins, headed by Jim Rhindress, will open the show with 45 minutes of classic rock, followed by the Calum Hughes Collective. Hughes is best known for his work in Kinship, a popular Celtic rock group, while his solo venture is more progressive rock. His CBC Music bio dubs him an Eddie Vedder sounding Dave Matthews/ David Gray-type whose been known to pick up the bagpipes in the middle of

Latest Hobbit movie turns out to be an ‘unexpected delight’ THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY

The cast, as you might expect, is awesome with its who’s who of acclaimed actors—Ian McKellen (Gandalf), Martin Freeman (Bilbo Baggins), Richard Armitage

BEHIND THE SCREEN

Had Hyde Park on the Hudson, with Bill Murray playing President Franklin Roosevelt, been in Kelowna theatres this weekend, I would have chosen to see that show and I would have missed this most unexpected delight. The Hobbit’s tale is a recollection of a long ago

Susan Steen journey that he took with the dwarfs to try to regain their lost kingdom. What we get is the most amaz-

(Thorin), Elijah Wood (Frodo), Cate Blanchette (Galadriel), Christopher Lee (Sarumna) and John Callen (Oin)—among those who make this film so much more than just another show. Directed by Peter Jackson, the film opens as Bilbo, wanting to preserve this story for Frodo, begins writing of an adventure that took place 60

years previously. It opens with a dragon raid and takes us through scene after scene of the most riveting 3D action, which doesn’t end until the very last moment in this threehour epic. There is quite a lot of violence, but we tend to forget the violence on the screen because, after all, they’re fighting trolls and other beasties, and

the rest of the great shows that should be here for Christmas, but this journey is worth taking in— maybe even more than once. I give The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey five reels.

we’re right in the fight with them. There’s also much comic relief, which is often laugh-out-loud funny. One line, while describing the beheading of the evil king whose head was sent flying: “…thus the battle was won, and the game of golf invented at the same time.” I still want to see Hyde Park on the Hudson, and

TOM CRUISE stars as the title character in the action-thriller Jack Reacher. CONTRIBUTED

Possibly another series for Cruise

L

ast week, I spent so much time on Peter Jackson’s groundbreaking use of high frame rate (HRT) in making The Hobbit, I did not get a chance to write about another groundbreaking director. Hitchcock opened last weekend at the Paramount. In it Anthony Hopkins plays the iconic director during the period of time he made the classic Psycho. The movie provides insight into Hitchcock’s relationship with his wife (Helen Mirren) while he fought to preserve his vision of what became the most famous of all of his movies. Although Hopkins’ eerie portrayal of Hitchcock was overlooked at the Golden Globe nominations, Mirren’s portrayal of his wife received a nod. With the holiday season comes a plethora of new releases over the next week. Already in theatres is The Guilt Trip and Monsters, Inc 3D. The Guilt Trip stars Seth Rogen as Andy Brewster, an inventor who is about to embark on the road trip of a lifetime. However, a quick stop at his mom’s house (Barbra Streisand) turns into an unexpected cross-country voyage with her along for the ride. The premise may be a little thin but the two appealing stars, along with director Anne Fletcher (The Proposal) should make The Guilt Trip a nice holiday diversion. Although there is nothing new about the re-release of Monsters, Inc other than the 3D, it is a great chance to see this classic Disney/Pixar movie on the big screen a decade later. It is also a great warm-up to next

MOVIE GUY

Rick Davis summer’s Monsters University, a prequel which shows when Mike and Sully first met in college. Starting tomorrow is a movie that could see the start of another strong franchise for Tom Cruise. Based upon Lee Child’s popular novels about an ex-military investigator named Jack Reacher, writer-director Christopher McQuarrie (the brilliant screenwriter of The Usual Suspects) does his usual fine job of putting together a slick,

action-packed film. Cruise plays the title character who must uncover the mystery behind the deaths of five people at the hands of a trained military sniper. Like Mission Impossible last year, Cruise looks to have another seasonal hit and it sounds like he and McQuarrie are going to team up again with Mission: Impossible 5 in the near future. Also starting tomorrow is the pseudo sequel to writer/director/ producer Judd Apatow’s Knocked Up, in which he expands upon the characters played by Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann. This is 40 is an adult comedy about a couple trying to cope with family life, financial challenges and growing older. Watch for

a great supporting cast including Jason Segel, Melissa McCarthy, Robert Smigel, Megan Fox, John Lithgow and Albert Brooks. And finally, visionary filmmaker James Cameron and director Andrew Adamson (Shrek, The Chronicles of Narnia) team up with the creative minds of the world’s most successful circus for the 3D adventure Cirque du Soleil Worlds Away. Next week we wrap up the year with Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained, Les Miserables and Parental Guidance. Rick Davis is the general manager of Landmark Cinemas 8 in West Kelowna. landmarkwk_gm @landmarkcinemas.ca

The food was divided between the Kelowna Mission, Women’s Shelter and families within our own community. The kindergarten students and grade ones loaded some of the donations onto the Kelowna Transit Santa Bus to deliver the goods to families in town.

All 350 students presented a western musical, Santa’s Holiday Ho Down, December 12th. The 28 member grade six cast skillfully presented the storyline through song, dance and drama lead by Mrs. Hamilton. Each grade group ranging from kindergarten to grade six took center stage to share their class “western hit song” as the scenes changed from the North Pole to Joe Rich, B.C. Standing OH goes to all members of our school community for their preparation and planning of this delightful musical! Each morning our student body assembles in the gym to sing Christmas carols lead by Mrs. Detjen and our intermediate choir. On December 18th the choir performed at the Chatsworth Retirement Center. The Black Mountain school community will celebrate the last day of classes by participating in an a foot stomping, western style dance “Hoh Down” in the gym December 21st. This annual event is the culmination to our Physical Education Dance unit taught by Mr. Nicol.

Book report: Manic Magee PhOTO CONTRIBUTED

a dIa-raMa

created by Mataija is a representation of the novel‘Manic Magee’.

By Mataija, grade six We read and really enjoyed the book, Manic Magee by Jerry Spinelli. The theme of the story is racism, inequality and the separation of white and black. The unique main character, Jeffrey Magee is a friendly orphan who comes into the town of Two Mills and brings the town together. Magee is “colour-blind” in

that he doesn’t see any difference between the two races who divide the town. My reading project was a dia-rama that was a clear visual of the separation in Two Mills. I chose this scene because it was a true representation of what the novel was about. I used plastercine, cardboard, paint, tape and my imagination to complete my

project. Part of my project was to present it in front of the class. Explaining the scene to my classmates was difficult at first, because I was nervous; however, it was also fun. I found making this project was amusing and a great learning experience. The book, itself is a wonderful read and I would recommend it to anyone.

NEWS ▼ ROADBLOCKS

Impaired drivers targeted again The Kelowna RCMP, in partnership with MADD Canada, have commenced a road safety awareness campaign today with the aim to rid the streets of impaired drivers. The campaign is geared towards the awareness of all motorists and encourages them to report impaired drivers by calling 911. New signs will be posted in strategic areas around the city and bumper stickers with the catch phrase “Report Impaired Drivers, Call 911” will be affixed to the Kelowna RCMP’s contingent of

marked police vehicles. “There is a perception among the public that reporting a suspected impaired driver is not a reason to call 911,” said Carol Fazekas, president of the Central Okanagan chapter of Mothers Against Drunk Drivers. “This program helps to educate the public that impaired driving is indeed an emergency situation and that the police encourage the public to call 911 to assist them in getting impaired drivers off the roads before they cause a crash, injuring

or killing innocent people or themselves.” “Road safety is a priority for the Kelowna RCMP and we will continue to focus on enhanced road safety enforcement, targeting impaired and aggressive drivers in order to promote greater public safety,” added Sgt. Jayson Lucash, with Okanagan RCMP Traffic Services. “This new awareness campaign encourages the public to become invested partners in road safety by reporting dangerous driving behaviours.”

A classic truck stolen The Kelowna RCMP are looking for a classic truck that was stolen from underground parking Sunday morning. On Dec. 16 at 9:30 a.m., the Kelowna RCMP received a report of a theft of vehicle from an apartment building on the 700 block of Glenmore Road. A yellow 1969 Chevy pickup truck (inset) had been stolen from the underground parking around 7:30 a.m.

Video surveillance showed a newer model white Ford F350 was used to tow the truck away, possibly with the use of a rented trailer. The stolen truck is yellow with black accents and a large air intake protruding from the hood. The engine compartment has some fair-

ly unique identifying features including Jeg’s stickers, skull and crossbones stickers, the phrase “Injection’s Nice But I’d Rather Be Blown” written above the radiator and metallic flames in the grille. Anyone with any information is asked to call the Kelowna RCMP at 250-762-3300.

FOR THE

Traditional Roast Turkey

A 13-15 lb. (6-7 kg) turkey serves 6

Chestnut stuffing

- 1 turkey, with giblets - 1 onion, coarsely chopped - A sprig of thyme - 1 bay leaf - 4 oz. (113 g) salted butter - Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

- 14 oz. (392 g) fresh chestnuts - 1 cup (240 ml) milk - 4 oz. (112 g) sausages or sausage meat - 2 tablespoons (30 ml) olive oil - 6 oz. (168 g) turkey liver, chopped - 1 onion, chopped - 2 oz. (56 g) fatty bacon, finely chopped - 1 tablespoon (30 ml) chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley or marjoram - Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

Lemon and Herb stuffing - 2 eggs - 4 oz. plus 1 tablespoon (130 g) butter, melted - A handful of fresh parsley leaves - 1 teaspoon (5 ml) chopped fresh lemon thyme - Freshly grated zest and juice of 1 unwaxed lemon - 4 1/2 cups (1.08 litres) fresh white bread crumbs - Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

Lemon and herb stuffing:

Turkey:

Put the eggs, butter, parsley, lemon thyme, and lemon zest and juice in a food processor and blend to a smooth purée. Put the bread crumbs in a bowl, pour over the egg mixture, and mix well. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

To make a stock, the day before put the giblets, minus the liver but with the neck chopped in half, in saucepan. Add the onion, thyme, and bay leaf, cover with water and bring to a boil, removing any foam. Reduce the heat and simmer for 2 hours, then strain. Taste and, if necessary, simmer for a little longer to reduce and strengthen the flavour. The next day, wipe out the neck area and cavity of the turkey with a damp cloth and lightly season the inside with salt and pepper. Spoon the lemon and herb stuffing into the body cavity and the chestnut stuffing into the neck cavity, allowing plenty of room for them to expand. This is particularly important for the neck stuffing. Put half the butter in a saucepan and melt gently. Spread the remaining butter all over the skin of the turkey. Soak the cheesecloth in the melted butter and drape over the bird, with a double layer covering the drumsticks. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Put the bird in a large

Chestnut stuffing: Cook fresh chestnuts in a saucepan of boiling water for about 3 minutes to soften the shells. Peel them while still hot, wearing rubber gloves. Put the peeled fresh chestnuts in a saucepan, cover them with the milk, and simmer gently until softened, about 30 minutes to 1 hour, depending on how fresh they are. Strain them if necessary, then weigh out 7 oz. (196 g) and put in a bowl. Crumble the cooked chestnuts with your fingers and use the sausage meat to bind them. Heat the oil in a skillet, add onion, liver, and bacon and fry gently until the liver is firm. Stir in the parsley and cook until the mixture begins to brown. Add to the chestnuts with some salt and pepper.

roasting pan in the middle of the oven. Roast for the calculated time according to size, except that the oven temperature must be raised to 400°F (200°C) and the cheesecloth covering removed for the last 30 minutes in order to crisp the skin. Remove the turkey from the oven, cover with a tent of aluminum foil, and leave in a warm place to rest while you prepare your side dishes. Using oven mitts, tip out any free juices from the cavity, then lift the turkey onto a serving platter. Pour off the turkey juices from the pan, preferably into a gravy separator or pitcher to be able to lift off the fat, then reheat with the seasoned stock. Serve as is or for a traditional gravy, pour juices into a pan, thicken with a small amount of flour and cook well, stirring to prevent burning. Reserve extra gravy in a Thermos for second helpings. Serve with roasted potatoes, roasted parsnips, candied yams, bacon rolls, cranberry relish, and Brussels sprouts.

Happiness GIVE THE GIFT OF

What could be a better way to add sparkle to the eyes and heart of a senior than to share a happy holiday moment with them?

The simple gesture of stopping by to say “hello” is a gift of happiness that will stand out among the token gifts and Christmas cards this year. Just think of those longago visits to your own grandparents’ at Christmas time: the delicious smell of sweets baking, the old family Christmas decorations hanging from the tree, and songs and stories from times gone by. Just close your eyes and remember the cozy atmosphere and yummy treats created with such loving care by your grandmother. In return for those great memories, you could take some time from your busy holiday schedule to bring your own children to see their

grandparents, or maybe even their great-grandparents, for a pre-Christmas visit. An elderly neighbour might also love to have a chance to see you for a cup of tea and sweets. If you’re going to be visiting grandparents for the holidays, be sure to arrive the day before so you can help Gran prepare the meal for the next day while Grandpa entertains the kids. Bring whatever you can to help out: some of your own baked goods or some cider or wine. Seeing your children’s smiles as they learn the secrets of Grandma’s cranberry sauce will warm your heart. The next day, dress to the nines for dinner and be sure to help out in the kitchen at clean-up time. The presence of family is a wonderful gift to offer your children as well. After all, true happiness is being able to spend some time with the ones we love, time that will create unforgettable memories. That is why it is so important to create the occasions where we can renew the ties that bind us to our families and to the older generation.

Do what you can to create Christmas traditions and family memories, for they are what bind together the old and young generations

Resurgent Franko steady for Rockets Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

As much as Zach Franko is looking forward to a respite from the rigors of the hockey season, the Winnipeg product wasn’t entirely happy to be parting ways with his Kelowna Rockets’ teammates for Christmas. After all, it’s not easy leaving behind one of the hottest teams in the Western Hockey League. “You know, it was actually pretty tough to say goodbye to the guys, we spend so much time together and we’re such a tight group,” said Franko. “We’ve been having fun and we’re playing some good hockey. “It’ll be really nice to have a break here and get our minds off hockey,” added Franko, “but it’ll also be good to get back together after Christmas and try pick up where we left off.” Heading into the Xmas break, the Rockets had won 16 of 20 games, including four of the last five on a gruelling six-day tour of the Central Division. Franko’s resurgence as an offensive force and emergence as a better leader this season is just one of many reasons

the Rockets are suddenly pushing the Kamloops Blazers for the B.C. Division lead. After a solid rookie season when he netted 53 points, his production fell off dramatically in 201112 (39 points) as both Franko and the Rockets struggled with consistency. But thanks to a more committed off-season of training, added experience and a renewed attitude, Franko has raised his game to a new level. “Basically for me it was all about working hard,” said Franko who has 12 goals and 36 points in 33 games this season. “Last season, things didn’t go too well but I decided to put it all behind me and move on. I put my mind to being better prepared coming into the season, getting myself where I wanted to be, and helping this team be successful.” According to head coach Ryan Huska, adjustments to both his mental and physical approach to the game are paying huge dividends for Franko and the Rockets. “Over the course of summer he came in quite bit better shape,” said Huska. “He’s bigger and stronger, he’s more comfortable on the ice, he’s

He’s not a big guy, but he’s very hard to knock off the puck. “(Zack) is really enjoying himself around the rink, too,” said Huska. “He’s matured physically and psychologically and his confidence level con-

tinues to grow.” As for this year’s edition of the Rockets, Franko insists he has never played with a more unified group of players. And while Kelowna may not lead the league in individual talent and skill, Franko said the Rockets are at or near the top in both depth

and commitment to the team concept. “I’ve never been on a team as deep as this, we have four lines that all contribute, we don’t really have a No. 1 line because it’s someone different stepping every night,” he said. “With team success comes personal suc-

cess and the guys are all buying into that. We’re playing for each other and that’s huge. We feel like we have what it takes to win a championship.” Franko and the Rockets’ (23-10-1-1) return to action Dec. 27 when they host the Kamloops Blazers.

Two candidates left for Sun coaching job Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

The shortlist won’t be getting any shorter. With just two candidates left in the running, the Okanagan Sun is on the verge of choosing the club’s new head coach for the 2013 B.C. Football Conference season. “We’ve narrowed the shortlist down to two

people,” Sun GM Jay Christensen said Tuesday. “Because of Christmas parties and the busy schedules people have this time of year, the process has maybe gone a bit slower than we would

have liked. But we’re very close to making our final decision.” Christensen and the rest of the four-man selection committee—including Sun president Paul Carson—will meet on Fri-

day to further discuss the merits of the two finalists. Although Christensen can’t guarantee a decision will be made this week, he expects the football community will soon be introduced to the 14th head coach in Sun football club history. From a list of about 10 qualified applicants, Christensen said the last two candidates stood a

cut above the rest. “To be honest, I’d be pretty happy with either one of these guys,” said Christensen, who couldn’t divulge where either coaching finalist was from. “They’re both quality people and quality football coaches.” The Sun has been searching for a new head man since the firing of

Gavin Lake prior to the 2012 BCFC playoffs. Under Lake, who was hired last spring, the Sun posted its poorest regular season in team history going 3-7. Lake’s brief tenure at the helm ended after a 46-8 drubbing at the hands of the Langley Rams Oct. 15 at the Apple Bowl in the last game of the regular season.

Knox boys 3-time winners

The Dr. Knox Falcons are proving to be an unstoppable force so far this season in Grade 9 boys basketball. The Falcons went undefeated in three games last weekend to win the Vancouver College Emerald Tournament. It was the third tournament victory of the season for the Knox boys, who also captured South Kamloops and Kitsilano Invitationals. At Van College, the Falcons dominated the host team in the final with a 66-38 win. Matthew Lafontaine scored 19 points in the title game, while the Hustle Award went to Braxton Cardiff, and the top defender was Nic Carter. In the tournament opener, Knox beat St. Michael’s University 85-33. Tristan Bouchard scored 14 points, Jae Steinhauer-Rudrum was the top rebounder with 18, while Davide Ciancio had nine assists. In Game 2, the Falcons defeated Kitsilano 78-58. The top scorer for Knox was Lafontaine with 23 points, the top defender was Jorde Hitchens, while the top freethrow shooter was Parker Simson who went a perfect 10-for-10. Matthew Lafontaine was named the tournament’s MVP, while Tristan Bouchard was named to the first all-star team. “The team played up tempo basketball, with the entire team contributing valuable minutes on the court,” said Falcons’ coach Dave Lafontaine. The Falcons have also recorded wins over KSS and Kelowna Chrisitian in junior A league play over the last two weeks.

final.  In Sunday’s thirdplace match against the South Okanagan Heat, the Rockets prevailed in overtime by a 3-2 score.  Spencer Copan had two goals, including the winner. Nate Higgens was the top tournament scorer for the Rockets with four goals. Singles came off the sticks of Colton Horne, Murray Gaffney, Jake Fulton, Easton Forrest, Callum Hayes and Cole Williams.

ment, that extra pass and that extra effort to team defense. Very proud of the boys.” In the semifinal, the Mustangs suffered a close loss to Panorama Ridge (AAA) 82-76.

Liquid Lightning Swim Club members came home with best times, medals, qualifying times and club records after competing last weekend at the MJB Law Ice Classic swim meet in Kamloops. More than 550 swimmers from clubs across B.C. and Alberta attended the competition. Ten LLSC swimmers achieved new qualifying time standards. New AA provincial qualifying times were achieved by : Christopher Basisty (1:19.91 in 100 meter butterfly); Wyatt Fagan (2:26.11 in 200 meter freestyle); Zach

DaSilva (29.09 in 50 meter freestyle); and Molly Harding ( 1:29.82 in 100 meter breaststroke). Kyra Mcnulty swam a AAA provincial qualifying time of 1:12.17 in 100 meter backstroke. Four swimmers achieved Western time standards: Lucas Tyler swam 27.59 in 50 fly; Craig Mathieson swam 29.04 in 50 back; Jamie Sullivan swam 2:23.14 in 200 back; and Lauren Fauchon swam 30.18 in 50 fly.

Lightning swimmers have one more competition in January before heading off to several championship meets in February.

Jets’ Zakala excels at Ice Classic

Josh Zakala was in top form at the 20th edition of the Ice Classic swim meet in Kamloops. The 14-year-old member of the Kelowna AquaJets won six medals and set seven club records, as 550 swimmers from across B.C. and Alberta competed last weekend at the three-day event. Zakala lowered his R own records in the 1,500 and 400 free placing sixth and second, respectively. He also rewrote history in the 200 IM in 2:15.95, lowering a Roland Bauhart record from 1995, along with the 200 breast record in a time of 2:33.30 shaving three seconds off Graeme Geen’s mark from 1989. Zakala also had help from his teammates lowering two relay records in the 14-andunder category. Swimming the free relay in 1:54.54 were Zakala, Sam McDonald, Ben Main and Noah Robertson. In the medley relay on Saturday, it was Theo Mohamed, McDonald, Zakala and Main swimming in 2:10.40.

Council support of Inverness Road property rezoning upsets neighbours Wade Paterson CONTRIBUTOR

West Kelowna council’s support of rezoning a piece of Glenrosa property to allow for compact housing has local residents upset. Council gave third reading to a zoning bylaw amendment to change the two hectare, 3700 Inverness Rd. property, which is adjacent to Powers Creek, from rural (R3) to compact housing (RC1) at its Dec. 11 meeting. The area is surrounded by rural zoned property to the south and west and single family residences to the north. Since the proposal was brought to the district earlier this year, a main concern has been the increased density at the end of a dead-end road.

“The whole idea of putting higher density RC1 development at the end of a dead-end road, I am still not confident with,” said Coun. Rick de Jong at the district’s last council meeting. Glenrosa resident Lynne Gledhill recently wrote to the Capital News to express her frustration with council’s decision. She said the increased traffic that will come with the compact housing development could be dangerous in emergency situations. “Emergency vehicles have a difficult time already getting in to help because of the existing traffic we have now,” wrote Gledhill. “In the event of another evacuation similar to what occurred during the Glenrosa fire in 2009, (it)

could bring about a tragic disaster.” But the majority of council suggested there are currently enough accesses to Webber Road through roads that branch off Dunbarton Road. Coun. Duane Ophus added lower density, “sprawling single family subdivisions” are difficult to service. “I think this is the way to go forward with a lot of our community,” said Ophus. “To me, it’s primarily an issue of effective land use. I think that’s really what we have to address.” Mayor Doug Findlater said he is typically in favour of compact housing, but not in this scenario. “Normally I’m in favour of RC1; I think it’s where we have to go, generally speaking,” said

Findlater. “But it’s a single access road in there. It’ll put nearly double the density than R1 would be. “I have no problem with R1, it’s consistent with the neighbourhood around there, but that density doesn’t seem to work.” Council gave third reading to the zoning bylaw amendments by a vote of four to three. Council also directed staff to schedule the bylaw amendment for final consideration pending several conditions. A new reserve fund, called the Glenrosa Neighbourhood Improvement Fund, will also be created—to which the developer will contribute $45,000. wpaterson @kelownacapnews.com

Poll says poverty solutions desired A recent poll indicates that 95 per cent of all British Columbians donate to charity, in particular this time of the year when the focus of Christmas tends to be on helping the less fortunate. But the poll, commissioned by the B.C. Healthy Living Alliance, also reveals that British Columbians expect some leadership to find more permanent solutions to poverty. A provincial poverty reduction plan with clear targets and timelines to reduce the number of British Columbians living below the poverty line was the most popular response. Last week, the B.C. Healthy Living Alliance brought people from around the province together in an on-line forum to discuss income and health and a poverty reduction plan for the province.

ALL ABOARD…

Thao Kenny (above) helps her one-year-old son, Leo, climb into the Santa Sleigh Bus, parked outside the Johnson Bentley Memorial Aquatic Centre. The West Kelowna swimming pool offered several Christmas events last week including bus tours, a toonie swim and tours of the aquatic centre. Tomas Scherk tells Santa (right) what he wants for Christmas.

Trish Garner, with the B.C. Poverty Reduction Coalition, said, “Current income assistance rates leave people structurally dependent on food banks and other charities but they still struggle dayto-day to meet the most basic needs.” Ted Bruce, executive director of Population Health for Vancouver Coastal Health, described how “the gaps in health, attributed to inequality, are costly to the health care system, and that $1.2 billion in costs could be avoided each year if people in the lowest income group were making the same as those just one level up.” British Columbia currently has the highest provincial poverty rate, and is one of only two provinces across the country without a provincial poverty reduction plan.

Year of growth and change for physio clinic

d w - Remarkable is how lPinnacle Physiotherapy Clinic director Annick deGooyer sums up 2012 at aher West Kelowna facility. - “Earlier this year, when Pinnacle joined the -nationwide Centric health enetwork, we knew adding access to the resources of one of Canada’s largest private health organizations would add even more depth to the services myself and my other staff could offer our patients, but the positive response from the community took us all by surprise,” said deGooyer. As demand has increased throughout the year for Pinnacle’s services, deGooyer has expanded her clinic, adding registered physiotherapists Sean Bell and Kailee Grayston to her team.

Bell, a McMaster graduate and veteran competitive swimmer, has always demonstrated a passion for sports and an interest in kinesiology. A former Ontario camp director and counselor, Bell was an easy fit

for Pinnacle. Grayston, who graduated with a masters in physiotherapy from UBC, has also been an active athlete most of her life, competing in hockey, ringette, field hockey and soccer.

While working on her undergraduate degree, Kailee directed UBC’s intramural hockey league. Asked whether more growth is on the horizon in 2013, deGooyer said, “We’ll have to wait and see.”

MP defends Conservative approach to helicopter purchase I M MP’S REPORT

Dan Albas is that we are respectful of our differences and tolerant, at times even open minded, to the views and values of others. With the final sitting of the House of Commons for the year now concluded, this will mark my second year in Ottawa representing the citizens of Okanagan-Coquihalla in Parliament. I would like to take a moment to reflect on this milestone. For me, the past two years have been an immeasurable learning experience and a great honour to serve as your MP. There is one overarching issue that continues to concern me—the lack of accountability in information that is presented online.

To be clear, there are many justifiable reasons to disagree on policy and decisions of our elected representatives at all levels of government.   However, I am certain that most would agree that a genuine disagreement should be based on factually accurate information. More and more frequently, information being presented is not only factually inaccurate; at times it is even intentionally distorted in an effort to mislead. Frequently, this misinformation is located online and often authored by “Internet experts” or other “anonymous sources.” At times, even conventional media sources can report on a story that may leave out important factual information. Let me share one example of that. Many of you have likely heard media reports of our government “committing” to purchase the F-35 stealth fighter aircraft.

The reality is that not only have no F-35s been purchased to date, the decision to commit Canada to the joint strike fighter program (JSF) was actually made by the Liberal government of the day back in 1997. In 2001, after a design competition the Lockheed Martin F-35 was awarded the contract over a rival aircraft design proposal from Boeing. My reason for pointing out that the Chrétien Liberals made this commitment is not a case of pointing the finger of blame at someone else but rather to illustrate just how far back this issue originates. We must also not forget that this is not the first time Canada has had to replace a strategically important aircraft that have become obsolete. Senior taxpayers will recall that we paid $ 478 million in cancellation penalties when the Liberals cancelled the $4.8 billion EH-101 helicopter order that was to replace

the aging Sea-Kings. It should also be pointed out that cancelling the replacement for the SeaKing did not negate the need to replace this aging helicopter. It only delayed it further as we would ultimately discover at much greater cost to taxpayers. In fact, it was the same Liberal government that was subsequently forced to turn around only a few years later and purchase fewer replacement helicopters at an increased cost now estimated at $6.2 billion. 

With the replacement Sikorsky helicopters behind schedule, we still rely on 40-year-old SeaKing helicopters, which require 35 hours of maintenance for every hour in the air. It is important that we not repeat the mistakes of the past. That is why the “reset” button has in effect been announced by our government to ensure that whatever aircraft replaces the CF-18, we avoid following the expensive and costly lessons that we should not forget occurred with the replace-

ment of the Sea-King. While I recognize that few taxpayers rejoice at the thought of replacing soon to be out of date air- g craft, this does not, as we h have learned in the past, t negate the need to do so.  h As always, I welt come your comments and concerns and would r like to wish all citizens of e Okanagan-Coquihalla a m Merry Christmas, and a c prosperous New Year. o Dan Albas is the s Conservative MP for Okanagan-Coquihalla. f e dan.albas@parl.gc.ca

Stay active during the holidays The holiday season is often a time of excess—too many treats, too many gatherings, too much stress and too much holiday cheer. With your precious time already stretched to the limit, exercise and physical activity are usually the first things to drop off the table. But why is that when the benefits of continuing a physical activity plan over the holidays make it worthwhile to schedule it in? We know that physical activity improves health and relaxation, helps with weight control, makes you feel more energetic, and reduces stress. So why is it so hard to commit to physical activity over the holidays? Tradition often dictates how we spend our time and much like planning our New Years’ Resolutions, we need to have a plan for staying physically active through the holiday season. Here are suggestions on how to get active in Peachland during the holiday season.

have always been a strong believer in the principle of accountability. It is why I make every effort to ensure that my MP expenses are amongst the lowest in Western Canada, why I spoke out in favour of changes to the MP pension plan that were more respectful to taxpayers, and why I do not use over-the-top rhetoric or profanity in the House of Commons. Since being elected MP, another belief I continue to act upon is personally returning phone calls, emails where possible, and compose weekly reports on events that occur in Ottawa and in the riding. As taxpayers provide significant resources to all levels of government, I believe firmly that your calls and concerns deserve to be heard. We may not always have agreement in a democratic country as diverse as Canada, but I submit that one thing that sets us apart from others

Wishing everyone a safe drive home this Christmas

M

y wife and I host a little pre-Christmas get-together every year to help get into the mood of the season. The evening “activity” has a crew sitting around the piano with me taking requests from the Reader’s Digest Merry Christmas Songbook. Not being a church-goer, it is the one opportunity I have to sing songs of the season with friends. I cherish it every year. One of the seasonal favourites we enjoy singing is We Wish You A Merry Christmas. The full lyrics are not in the book, but we all grew up with them.  The beginning lines of each verse: “We wish you a Merry Christmas…Oh, bring us some figgy pudding… We won’t go until we get some…” It’s not just figgy pudding, though. The historical carolers are also calling out for “…and a cup of good cheer.” Please don’t mistake me for one of those people who want to strip away traditions to accord with our latest version of what’s politically correct. Please also don’t mistake me for necessarily being opposed to the ideas of “those people”.  Our learning never stops, or at least mine never has.   One of the things I

ACHIEVING JUSTICE

Paul Hergott am more and more coming to understand as the years pass me by is something I remember my father trying to get across to me when I was a very young man—the impact of our choice and use of language. The carolers who first sang We Wish You A Merry Christmas were on foot; any wheeled transportation at the time likely pulled by horses.  Today, we get place to place with a much more lethal mode of transportation, one without the benefit of sober horse-brains to keep us out of trouble. While there are updated lyrics available, I feel too rooted in the traditional lyrics to see myself singing: “We want some milk and cookies…Please bring it right here.” I wish each one of you a safe holiday season, even though the reality is that only Santa Claus could actually deliver on such an impractical wish.  Each of us can help improve our chances by making the right driving choices and strongly encouraging others to do the same. 

Perhaps the best we can wish for is a progressive shift of driving attitudes that would result in my wish becoming a practical reality at some point in the near future. This column is intended to provide general information about injury claims. Paul Hergott is a lawyer at Hergott Law in West Kelowna.

GIFT OF FOOD…The Peachland branch

of Valley First Credit Union staff employee Kimberly Dommett and Valley First member Martha Jenkins check out the latest donations under the Feed the Valley Christmas tree. This holiday season, the Valley First team is pioneering a unique Feed the Valley tree to help generate food donations for the local food bank. The tree is decorated with tags bearing the names of food items required by local food bank. Employees and members are taking the decorations from the tree, buying the identified food item and then writing their name on the decoration before re-hanging it on the tree. The Feed the Valley Christmas Tree is the brainchild of the Valley First Peachland branch staff to help support those less fortunate during the holiday season.

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.

Change for change By Allison Brown ‘Make your pennies count’ has been a phrase coined by many Canadians as we approach the abolishment date of the penny. In support of Free the Children, an organization committed to aiding youth in developing countries, I am involved with planning a penny drive at my school, Mount Boucherie Secondary. The penny drive is scheduled to launch Jan. 9, two days after students return from winter break. All the proceeds will be going to support water systems in developing countries. A group of students has begun planning for this event and are developing innovative ways to encourage students to bring in their pennies. One key part of the plan is a concept I created called ‘Penny Swag,’ which involves collecting donated pennies and making jewelry out of them, everything from teardrop earrings, to extravagant necklaces to leather bracelets. Boojangles, the jewelry business situated in the school that sells student-made pieces, are the creators behind these ‘penny swag’ masterpieces.

Grade 11 student Evelyn Mansell, one of the spearheads of the campaign, says, “Boojangles ‘penny swag’ is a great momento of the penny and a truly unique idea.” The Boojangles store is open Wednesdays at lunch to students and Boojangles will also go to your place of business to sell jewelry. They most recently visited the Capital News and were very well received. All inquiries are asked to contact Heather Whistle at (250) 712-7040. The school will be accepting all penny donations starting Jan. 9 from students and members of the community. Converted water jugs will be located in each classroom of the school for students to drop in their pennies. About 2,500 pennies is enough to supply one person with clean water for their entire life, so all donations are encouraged. There will also be a drop box located in the school office during school hours. Please gather your pennies and let’s make change happen.

MBSS basketball shaping athletes and well-rounded students By Kyle Ames Mount Boucherie Secondary School is growing with the community and the basketball program is no exception. Head coach Kelly Broderick has created an outstanding program that produces elite student/athletes while teaching life skills. Valuable life lessons such as teamwork, confidence, and community are taught and celebrated. While all student /athletes continue to strive and improve, the basketball class has found ways to give back to the community and create an excitement for the game at all grade levels. “Our goal is to provide the best opportunities for local student athletes, which in turn, develops productive community members,” coach Broderick.

Most recently the basketball class visited local elementary schools and shared their related knowledge and experiences. The positive response from local principals was overwhelming, ensuring a continued tradition of community involvement and student interest in MBSS basketball. In addition to making an impact at elementary schools, MBSS has been hosting an alumni tournament for 24 years. This great event is being held Dec 21/22nd at MBSS. The tournament kicks off with the AAA Boys vs. Teachers game. The Alumni tournament brings former players back to connect with the school community and student athletes. Each year players are asked to find community sponsors to help fundraise for the alumni event. This year Papa Johns has teamed up with the MBSS AAA

Adopt-a-Family: the spirit of giving By Lisa Moore For the past few weeks the grade 10 leadership class has been organizing the Adopt A Family program, as well as a Christmas Food Drive in support of the local food bank. In the past few years Mt. Boucherie has supported the Adopt A Family program by taking as many families as possible, and this year was no different. As a school we managed to adopt 12 families making a total of 60 people. Thirty-four classes decided to participate, and by doing so we have helped brighten 12 families’ holidays. They have also managed to brighten ours by allowing us the opportunity to embrace the Christmas spirit. In light of adopting

these families we have guaranteed that they will be able to have a Christmas dinner, and presents under the tree this holiday. Adopt A Family is not the only project the leadership class has taken on this season: they have also decided to promote the Christmas Food Drive. Each class in the school has been given a box to collect canned goods, and on the last day before break there will be a sculpture-building contest with the food that has been collected. At the end of the day all the food collected will be taken to the food bank so they are able to distribute it. This year the school has gone beyond what was asked of them and really embraced what Christmas is all about.

Boys and has pledged to donate 20 per cent of any online purchase when the customer uses the promo code #MBSSHOOPS, on Wednesdays, until January 16. All proceeds will help pay for a team camp this summer at Gonzaga University. Senior Alex Josipovic states “It’s great to see past Alumni grads come back that still have passion for the game.” The basketball class has not only contributed to the growth of local student athletes but also continues to embrace our local community. For current students in the class, it has proven to have a positive impact on player’s lives and will continue through the years. Donations for this event are appreciated. For more information contact Kelly Broderick at MBSS.

change. One penny can make a difference! Boojangles is developing a new line of jewelry that will incorporate the soon-to-be-extinct penny. MBSS Boojangles is a student-run business that operates out of the school, making jewelry, selling it to the community and passing on the profit to charity. In the past the store has sent between $2,000 and $3,000 to Africa for school projects as well as supporting different families that are in need locally, especially around Christmas. Please consider donating your pennies to this very worthwhile cause!

Penny donations may be dropped off at the MBSS school office, 2751 Cameron Road West Kelowna

Two malnourished snowy owls, recently found in Kelowna, have been released back into the wild after being brought back to health by an organization in the South Okanagan that looks after sick and injured birds of prey. The owls—one found near the Kelowna SPCA a few weeks ago— were released in an open area near the end of Gordon Drive late Tuesday afternoon. A group of about 30 people who

Dave Whitton, a board member with SORCO said an increasing number of snowy owls have been seen in southern B.C. recently, likely because of a lack of food in their natural habitat which his the Arctic. Blending in to the snowy backdrop, the birds flew out of the cages with little hesitation and while one flew away, the other landed a short distance from the crowd on hand and sat in the snow for a while before flying off.

The executive manger of the South Okanagan Recovery Centre for Owls, Lauren Meads drove the birds up to the Kelowna area from the centre’s Oliver headquarters. She said when the birds arrived at SORCO a few weeks ago, they weighed about one kilogram each. During their stay at SORCO, eating a diet of three small critters a day, they doubled their weight. They were released in the south Mission area in the hope they will not only find food but also join
