NEWS PENTICTON WESTERN

First phase of work along Okanagan Lake expected to be complete by mid-June Steve Kidd

Western News Staff

Work to rehabilitate the Okanagan Lake waterfront is going to be on a tight schedule, with the first phase planned to be completed by June 15. The project is expected to go out to tender in March, and the contract to be awarded in early April, with construction of the first phase to begin immediately. That phase is to be finished by June 15, and work will come to a halt through the busy summer tourist season. Work on the second phase is scheduled to start Sept. 3 Rod King, chair of the waterfront select committee, said they have been on a tight timetable all along. “It’s been a really interesting exercise,” said King, who was concerned originally that it wouldn’t be possible to develop a waterfront plan in the time allotted. “I think it was a good idea to give us a tight timeline. It got us excited and on board.” King wore the same Hawaiian shirt to present the detailed plan to council this week as he did in May when he first introduced the work of the committee. “I am trying to reinforce that we are getting the ball rolling again,” said King, who said that the public consultation process was intense and long, that a lot of good thinking went into the plan by the public. In fall of last year, council approved that out of four options presented, that planning continue on a concept that was expected to cost $1.85 million, funded by $1.2 million in a gas tax grant and $650,000 investment According to Mitch Moroziuk, the city’s director of operations, that price tag has already increased. He listed a variety of extra costs, including $22,500 for using coloured concrete in an S-shaped pattern along sections of the walkway, $36,000 for illuminated bollards at high-traffic pedestrian crossing areas and other additions coming to a total of about $275,000. Moroziuk said the city will also be removing more trees than expected; they will now be removing 28 trees rather than 23, though they will still be replacing them at a two-to-one ratio, meaning 56 new trees. Though Moroziuk said that the increased costs for the plan would be covered by a combination of reallocation of 2013 capital works projects and 2012 carry forwards, several councillors expressed concern about the increase in costs at this early stage.

ROD KING, chair of the waterfront select committee, looks over a map on the Okanagan Lake shoreline Thursday. First phase of the rehabilitation work is scheduled to be finished by mid-June.

Coun. Garry Litke wondered if there would be an opportunity for council to create an oversight committee, as was done with the pool construction project, to keep an eye on costs as well as the schedule. “This is first blush and I start getting nervous when the first time you look at a project there is a budget overrun. And the next time we look at it, there will be another budget overrun,” Litke said, adding that he wanted to make sure that the project came in not only on budget but on time, and that the first phase would be done in the allotted time. “That is a critical date in the economic and tourist life of our community. On June 15, we can’t have construction going on our waterfront any longer,” Litke said, adding that even a few days delay might be devastating to an event like the Peach City Beach Cruise. Coun. John Vassilaki expects the cost of the renovations to increase, although he said that wasn’t the reason he was planning to vote against the plan.

“I am dead against this project, not because it isn’t worthwhile, but because it doesn’t go far enough,” said Vassilaki, who had argued for a more significant investment in the waterfront when plans had come before council previously. He was concerned that an oversight committee, in trying to balance cost overruns, would cut from other areas of the project. “The pool was kept on budget because we kept cutting and cutting so we could stay at the budget,” said Vassilaki. Mayor Dan Ashton denied that had been the case, saying the city had “added and added,” as did Litke, who was on the pool oversight committee. However, in an earlier comment Litke had said one of the functions of the committee was to find ways to balance increasing costs. “Every time there was a budget overrun on one part of the budget, we found another place somewhere else in that budget to make sure the project stayed on budget,” said Litke.

Wendy’s putting dreams on the menu Mark Brett Western News Staff

Dreams do come true. Just ask the many deserving Penticton and area kids who have had the unique opportunity to travel to “the happiest place on earth,” Disneyland in Anaheim, Calif. What makes this day-long adventure possible for the more than 80 young people between the ages of three and 18 every other year is the annual Wendy’s DreamLift Day. This year’s fundraiser at the nine Interior restaurants, including Penticton, takes place Wednesday, Jan. 30 from 6 a.m. to closing. This year’s theme is Refer a Child, where everyone is encouraged to find out just how easy the process is to nominate a child for the trip. This can be done by logging on to www.sunshine.ca and clicking on “dreams.” Again this year local celebrities, dignitaries and others will be volunteering at Wendy’s throughout the day, with the proceeds going to pay for the DreamLift to Disneyland later this year. The trips are organized through the Interior chapter of the Sunshine Foundation of Canada for kids with severe physical disabilities or life-threatening illnesses. On DreamLift Day all the proceeds from the sales in the dining

JoSh MooN was one of the local kids who had an opportunity to travel to California on a previous DreamLift to Disneyland excursion. Money to fund the trip is raised through the annual Wendy’s DreamLift Day event which takes place at Penticton and other Interior Wendy’s restaurants Wednesday, Jan. 30.

room and drive through along with wages from employees, management and owners will be donated to the cause. “The real thing here is it’s a great cause,” said area partner Todd Lewis,

who oversees Wendy’s in Penticton, Kelowna and West Kelowna. “I mean sending a plane full of kids to Disneyland does nothing but bring smiles to everybody’s faces and a little sunshine into people’s lives.

“The big thing is that I’ve found over the years on DreamLift Day is that it’s become not so much a Wendy’s event as a community event, that now I can’t imagine the world without it.”

He admitted being a little overwhelmed by the impact several years ago after participating in his first fundraiser for the chain. “Seeing the kids who had gone on the trip four or five years ago who came back to volunteer on the day was really something,” said Lewis. “But even the smiles and generosity on that day is nothing compared to the day of the flight. Everyone is just flying.” According to Lewis, Wendy’s founder, the late Dave Thomas, believed strongly in the importance of his company giving back to the communities it serves. Thomas’ daughter Wendy was in Penticton last year and she echoed her father’s words and philosophy with the many customers who stopped by to have a meal and do their part to contribute. “This is just part of the responsibility that my father taught us,” she said. “If you become successful you have to give back to the community because we’re all people and we have to help each other at times.” While the figures for individual outlet aren’t made public, the Peach City always holds its own, according to Lewis, and continues to grow each year. In 2012, the overall figure for the 18 years topped the $1-million mark. The next flight for the children from the Interior is expected to be at the end of this year.

Summerland care home remains under scrutiny Joe Fries Western News Staff

Watchdogs remain in place at Summerland Seniors Village as its operator corrects deficiencies identified during an inspection triggered by a complaint from a resident’s family. In a report released Wednesday, the inspectors, working under the umbrella of the B.C. Assisted Living Registrar, outlined 14 action items that operator Retirement Concepts must address to keep its assisted-living licence. That review complements additional inspections by Interior Health, which has directed the company to increase staffing levels and strengthen its leadership team at the facility, plus improve staff training. “The bottom line is that we are going to remain at that site providing clinical oversight indefinitely until we’re satisfied with the care that we’re seeing,” said Karen Bloemink, regional director of residential services for IH.

Bloemink said the deficiencies were first noted last fall, and IH staff is now “working very closely” with Retirement Concepts on the facility’s staffing model. IH sent a pair of its senior managers to the site in December to help with the turnaround and they’ll stay there indefinitely. Problems at the home surfaced in late November when the family of former Summerland Seniors Village resident Alfredo Bonaldi went public with concerns about his care there. Bonaldi, a 91-year-old independent-living client, was felled by a suspected case of food poisoning and left unattended in his room for several days before he was discovered by a family member on Nov. 25. Bonaldi’s absence at meal times should have prompted staff to check up on him, but didn’t. He died in Penticton hospital on Dec. 10. The facility’s policy around missing residents was one of the areas of concern identified in the Assisted Living Registrar’s review, which was conducted Dec. 3-6. It found the policy had

been “recently revised to include documentation of resident absences from meals,” and “was not followed by staff.” Other areas of concern listed in the report include: no evidence of staff training related to processes to follow in the event of accidents, deaths and medical emergencies; not all care aides registered with appropriate provincial regulators; and no evidence of routine evaluation of care aide competencies. The report also noted that staff “stated they were afraid of repercussions by management should they put forth complaints and said they felt unsupported because the union aligned themselves with management.” Retirement Concepts said Wednesday it’s taking the report seriously. “We will continue to work closely with IHA to ensure that we address every issue raised in the report,” vice-president of operations Tony Baena said in a statement. “Even before the report was published we

implemented improvements to our policies and procedures and now have an experienced Retirement Concepts regional manager acting as interim general manager at Summerland Seniors Village and working with the team to address all the issues.” Bonaldi’s son-in-law, Gil Inglis, said the man’s three daughters will continue to press government for stricter oversight of B.C. care facilities to prevent a similar tragedy. “They’re still pushing,” Inglis said. “Hopefully there’s something satisfactory at the end.” Katrine Conroy, the B.C. NDP’s critic for seniors and long-term care, also called for stronger government regulations, plus better enforcement of those rules. “The government’s ultimately responsible for ensuring the safety of our citizens, and we need to ensure that there’s regulations in place to make sure people are going to get the care that they need and deserve,” said Conroy, the MLA for Kootenay West.

Stepfather guilty of abuse Kristi Patton Western News Staff

WENDY’S - DreamLift Day set for Wednesday Like past years, there will be a member of the Orange County Sheriff’s Department helping with the festivities on DreamLift Day. Lt. Mike Toledo will be the special guest in Penticton this year during his first visit to the city. While in Disneyland the sheriffs act in part as chaperones for the children, and their tireless efforts are one of the main reasons the kids manage to get to the front of the lines for the rides and activities which maximizes what they are able to see and do in the short time they are at the park. Over 100 members of the department donated their time to the cause. Chase Moog, who got to go on one of the previous

flights, described his feelings about the trip this way: “What I enjoyed most was hanging out with all my friends and going on rides. It gave me a special feeling like I was really important.” Lynn Langille is a vision resource teacher who described many of the children acting like they had a weight removed from their shoulders just by being with others with disabilities. “They can just have fun and be themselves,” she said. “Many of these kids won’t have the opportunities due to family income or disabilities, but thanks to the Sunshine Foundation and Wendy’s they will have that opportunity. “It really is a dream come true.”

A Penticton judge has found a man guilty of sexually abusing his pre-teen stepdaughter. It was in December 2009 that an 11-year-old girl told an Oliver school teacher that something inappropriate was going on at home. On Thursday in Penticton court, the girl’s stepfather was found guilty of sexual assault, sexual interference of a young person under 16 and touching a young person for a sexual purpose, which took place over the course of three months. The man’s name cannot be used to protect the identity of the girl. Judge Meg Shaw said she believed beyond a reasonable doubt that the stepfather had numerous sexual encounters with the girl, including sexual intercourse on one occasion. Shaw said the stepfather’s audio and video statement to police that was shown as evidence had “frequently conflicting” information and he “modified his statements” to back up his story. Shaw said they had no air of reality to them where the girl’s testimony was credible. The judge pointed out the girl was not shaken in her description of the events when she took the stand, and although there were some inconsistencies, that was due to her young age. The girl told the court the abuse started with the stepfather calling her “sexy” and “gorgeous.” She said she thought it was over when she told him to stop, but it only escalated to sexual

encounters happening up to two or three times a week. The girl said she was too scared to tell anyone because he made threats that he would hurt her family and that no one would believe her anyway. She said she couldn’t tell her biological father either, because they did not have a strong relationship at that time. In her decision, the judge said after RCMP became involved, the girl’s biological mother was given the choice to tell the stepfather to leave the house or the girl. She chose to let the man stay with her. The stepfather provided a defence, which included testimony from the mother, that the girl simply did not like him. The mother testified the girl was lashing back because the stepfather would enforce house rules and the girl did not like that. During his police statement, the stepfather admitted he had fallen asleep in the girl’s bed when tucking her in for the night. He said if his hand had fallen “in the wrong place” it was not intentional. The stepfather applied that his constitutional rights to a speedy trial were violated as it has been over three years since charges were laid. The judge denied that application after hearing submissions from Crown counsel that there was no undue adjournments and very little, if any, financial prejudice due to lost work because of his bail conditions. The stepfather is due back in court on March 20 to determine if a pre-sentence report has been completed and to fix a date for sentencing.

Walk boosts Alzheimer’s support Mark Brett Western News Staff

Much of Audrey Jackson’s life was devoted to helping people, but even with the onslaught of the dreaded dementia of Alzheimer’s she remained true to those convictions. After being diagnosed, it came as little surprise to friends and family her role in the early-stage support group of the Alzheimer Society of B.C. was more about others than herself. “That was my mom, that was my mom to the end,” said her daughter Cat Morris, the middle of three children raised by Audrey and husband Bob Jackson who moved to Penticton in 1966. “That’s who she was, just an amazing person. The kindness and the gentleness and the nonjudgmental nature of her whole being. “She touched a lot of lives in this town. When we had the celebration of her life we stopped counting at 200 people. I walked outside to talk to somebody and couldn’t get back in it was so packed.”

Mark Brett/Western News

Cat Morris holds a photograph of her mother, audrey Jackson, who passed away three years ago. at the time of her death the longtime Penticton resident suffered from alzheimer’s disease, and this sunday’s annual investors Group Walk for Memories at Cherry Lane will be in her honour.

It was also that caring and compassion which made it fitting that on the anniversary of Audrey’s death in 2010 — Sunday’s annual Investor’s Group Walk For Memories is dedicated to her. Registration begins at 7:45 a.m. and the walk starts at 8:30 a.m. “In groups, Audrey was exceptionally warm and honest and supportive of other early-stage individuals,” recalled Laurie

Myres, support and education co-ordinator for the society’s Penticton office. “She just was a very nurturing and supportive person even though she had her own challenges. A lot of times this is such a huge challenge that comes into people’s lives that it’s all encompassing, and so it’s really a gift when you’re able to help others when you’re struggling yourself. “She was definitely

City confirms convention Steve Kidd Western News Staff

Following up on an announcement that was leaked last August, the South Okanagan Events Centre announced the signing of a five-year contract with the Jehovah’s Witnesses of Canada. “We are looking forward to returning to Penticton, after an absence of many years,” said Stanton Hill, Jehovah’s Witnesses of Canada convention organizer. “Penticton offers a beautiful place to visit and we are very much looking forward to enjoying the hospitality of this fine city.” The annual conventions are a spiritual highlight for Jehovah’s Witnesses, focusing on Bible education. Annually, seven million Jehovah’s Witnesses meet in 236 countries. The first Penticton convention will run from June 21 to 23 of this year, bringing up to 3,500 delegates to Penticton for a minimum of four nights. This is the same weekend as the Peach City Beach Cruise and the weekend before the annual Penticton Elvis Festival, which runs from June 28 to 30 this year. That should make for a very busy start to the summer tourist season in Penticton, especially for those in the accommodation industry. “Before selecting those dates, I did my research,” said Sally Pierce, assistant general manager of the SOEC complex. She found that while hotels in the north end of the city fill up quickly for large conventions, it is slower for those in the Skaha Lake area. “The reason why the accommodators are excited is because the business will extend and include everyone,” said

Pierce. “That’s a win, absolutely. That’s what we strive for.” News of the deal broke in late August 2012, when the Penticton Hospitality Association issued a release announcing the Jehovah’s Witnesses would be coming to Penticton this year. Both the Jehovah’s Witnesses organization and Global Spectrum, who manage the SOEC and the Penticton Trade and Convention Centre, were reluctant to confirm the PHA release. “They specifically asked us not to announce, because they wanted to make the announcement to their convention delegates and they were going to do that in December,” said Pierce. “The fiveyear contract is subject to the success of the first year.” Pierce said she has been working on securing the contract since 2009, the result of following a lead from managers at another Global Spectrum-managed facility. “The Jehovah’s Witnesses group has worked with many Global Spectrum managed facilities in Canada and the United States,” said Pierce, who explained that it isn’t unusual to take that length of time to secure a contract of this size. “When you are co-ordinating that amount of people, it takes some time and you’ve got to co-ordinate the accommodation and the travel, there is more to it than just booking the convention space,” said Pierce. “Jehovah’s Witnesses is a prime example, you’ve got up to 3,500 delegates. The booking lead-time for an association, especially a large association, is three to five years. That’s very common.”

like that in groups, just a really gracious lady.” It is for that special person, and the many others who suffer from dementia-related illnesses, the Jackson family and society officials hope as many people as possible will take the time to come to Cherry Lane Sunday morning for the walk.

What’s My Retirement “Number”? There’s been a lot of talk lately about how everyone needs to hit a certain “number” before they can retire comfortably — a number that is, frankly, intimidating to many Canadians. Is it true? First of all, your so-called “number” or retirement savings threshold won’t come from a simple formula. Contrary to what some may think, the same number doesn’t apply to everyone and will likely change as our lives evolve. Also, we all have different lifestyle goals for our retirement years. Some want to spend their later years traveling the world, others want to stay at home and tend the garden, and yet others plan to work at a job they love indefinitely. In each case, different savings are required and a number of variables, ranging from spousal contributions to your health status, can impact the amounts needed. Advocates of the “number” often refer to a 2010 C.D. Howe study that suggested most Canadians who want to retire at age 65 and replace 70% of their working incomes, must save 10%-21% of pre-tax earnings every year for 35 years. That can

be a daunting goal for many people who find it challenging to save even 10% of their paycheque each year. As others have since pointed out, a 70% income replacement goal is a “gold standard” and many can be quite comfortable having 50%-60% of their income in retirement. That said, smart savings and investment choices today are critical to ensuring you have access to a secure post-retirement income. It is also true the longer you delay saving for retirement, the more money you will need to set aside in later years. So, how do you take the first step toward figuring out what your retirement savings goal should be? Working with an advisor can help. Rather than worry about achieving a single large number, an advisor will take a structured approach to

figuring out what you need to be comfortable at various points in your life. His or her questions will range from “How will I generate income in retirement?” to “How will inflation and taxes affect my lifestyle?” To figure out what you need to save now, an advisor will help create a customized plan to reduce your risk for the years to come. For many, the simplest step is to open an RRSP or TFSA, and apply a structured approach saving a little each month. Your advisor should also help educate you on managing money after or as you near retirement. It is important, for example, to understand the impact of inflation and identify safe withdrawal rates that account for today’s longer life-spans. As you age, your advisor should also help you avoid high risks, and keep investment costs and taxes low. To create your own investment strategy, speak with an advisor to begin taking small steps toward your future retirement or other life goals.

EDITORIAL

Waterfront funding is money well spent

T

he pathway and beach along Okanagan Lake between the Peach and the SS Sicamous is undeniably one of the jewels in Penticton’s tourism crown. But dying trees, decaying retention walls and cracks in the walkway where tree roots had burrowed underneath meant the time has come — in fact is long past — for the city to give some attention to this valuable feature. After public consultations, the committee tasked with developing a plan to rehabilitate the waterfront returned to show off their initial plans. And that’s where the trouble started. First, there was the $7 million price tag should all the options be implemented. Then there was the illadvised switch from angle parking to parallel, which became the focal point for a sizable and vociferous group of citizens concerned about the damage this would do to the beach’s reputation as a destination. Council and the waterfront committee’s reaction to the controversy was, unfortunately, to take a conservative approach, and the next plans that were brought to the public were a choice between simply repairing the problems or a $1.8 million upgrade. And while it sounds like a lot, that doesn’t buy much over the basic repairs. That price has already grown by $275,000, however, and even as they endorsed the final plan this week, council was talking about how to avoid letting it grow any more. We applaud council’s tight fiscal management, but in this case it may be misdirected. We agree with Coun. John Vassilaki’s view that the waterfront should be treated as the tourism gem PENTICTON WESTERN it is, that everything possible to enhance its value should be considered. While borrowing large sums to enhance the waterfront is not a viable option right now, neither is cutting any of the planned enhancements in order to meet a budget figure. Council should be prepared to establish a reasonable contingency fund to complete the project as planned.

New hope for Korean reform If North Korea’s new leader, Kim Jong-Un, wanted to end the brutal and destructive tyranny that his father and grandfather imposed on the country, he would need support from abroad. The military and Communist Party elites who control and benefit from that system would have to be brought round or bought off, and that would require lots of foreign aid and a global amnesty for their crimes. So how would he get the foreigners to help? Well, he’d have to show them that he was willing to reform — but he couldn’t be too obvious about it at first, or those elites would just get rid of him. He’d drop a hint here, make a gesture there, and hope that the foreigners would trust him and help him to change the country. Rather like the Burmese generals did when they began to dismantle their own half-century-old dictatorship two years ago. Unfortunately, Kim Jong-un would drop the same hints and make the same gestures if his only wish was to sucker the outside world into propping up the bankrupt system in North Korea with more big shipments of free food and fuel. There’s no way to read his mind, so how should the foreigners respond? This is not a theoretical ques-

Gwynne Dyer

Dyer Straits tion, for he is sending out those signals. Never mind the cosmetic stuff like being seen in public with a new wife who dresses in fashionable Western clothes. In his televised New Year’s message to the Korean people, he spoke of the need to “remove confrontation between the North and the South,” and called for dramatic improvements in the national economy. It’s the first time the regime has ever celebrated the Western New Year (including fireworks in Pyongyang). It’s 19 years since the country’s leader last spoke to the people directly. He may be trying to tell them and the rest of the world that he is starting down the road of reform, or he may be bluffing. What to do? Unfortunately, since he’s not

making any political or economic reforms at home at the moment — that’s what he might do if he had foreign help — we can’t conclude anything about his intentions from his domestic policies. And his foreign policy is hardly encouraging either. North Korea doesn’t have much by way of a foreign policy. The only consistent thread is its obsession with military power (it has one of the world’s biggest armies, though it has about the population of Australia), and latterly with ballistic missiles and nuclear weapons. On the other hand, here is a man whose only claim to power is heredity, in a country that does not have a formally recognized monarchy. To consolidate his power, he must persuade the military and party elites that he is a reliable successor who will perpetuate the system that keeps them fat and happy, so his current aggressive posture in foreign policy is really no guide to his real intentions either. In fact, at this point there is really no way of telling what he means to do. The rest of the world, and in particular the United States and North Korea’s neighbours, South Korea, China and Japan, are going to have to make their decisions blind. What can they do that would help Kim Jong-un to

bring the country out of its cave and start loosening the domestic tyranny, without actually making matters worse if he is not a secret reformer? The safest course would be to encourage dialogue between North and South Korea (which has just elected a new president, Park Geun-hye, who has declared her presidency ready to initiate unconditional talks with the North). It would also be sensible to ease back on the embargoes and other restrictions on North Korean imports for a while, since they are obviously achieving nothing in terms of stopping its weapons projects anyway. And what if Kim-Jong-un dares not or simply does not want to respond to these gestures with more promising moves himself? Then you just give up and go back to the policy of containment that has had so little success over the years. North Korea is really a very small threat (except for its own people, of course), and it’s safe to take a little risk in the hope that the new ruler will respond. It’s the country’s only hope. There is not going to be a North Korean spring in the Arab style. Gwynne Dyer is an independent journalist whose articles are published in 45 countries.

Dear Ms. Caron ... Oh dear, I said it again. I am a server and I am not 16. In fact, I am rapidly approaching 40. I have been in this industry most of my life in one form or another. I must admit that I am fascinated by your letter (Jan. 11 Western News). Aside from my initial reaction, which was: “With all the trouble in our world how could you pick this subject, which you clearly put much thought into, to take the time and effort into writing the local paper with the hope that you can enlighten a child who is doing their best.” They are serving you and earning their keep. A far cry from hanging on a street corner, where I imagine you expect them to be in their off time. However, I can only speak from my own experience. I have faced backlash for using the term Ma’am. To some women it represents a reminder of their age. To others there can be a connotation that

For me, this is not just a job, this is my livelihood. This enables me to continue to stay in our fair city, to raise my children and not have to move away to find employment elsewhere. It takes a village to raise a child and mine is here. We live in a tourist area and much of the service industry income is generated by those dollars. While this means a boon to all in the summer, the winters are long and we rely heavily on our residents to help our local economy and maintain jobs for all our employees during the other nine months of the year.

We never want to assume whether you are married or not, whether you have attained the acceptable age to be referred to as Ma’am, or whether the term Madam will anger you.

Dance crew uses passion for anti-bullying message Kristi Patton

Western News Staff

Face-to-face with the harsh realities of bullying, a trio of Penticton youth have turned to their passion rather than their fists to respond. “There are three types of bullying — physical, verbal and social. We have socially been bullied before through cyber-bullying and we thought we could brush it off but it just kept coming and coming,” said Russell Lee. “Then it started being more verbal and almost to the point it got physical. That was the time we raised our voices and said that is enough.” Dream High Crew, which consists of Renzo Mabalay, Lee and Gurman Toor, were encouraged by Penticton School of Dance artistic director Krystal Kiran Garib to channel their feelings into their art. The result is a powerful video incorporating dance as the way to spread their message of anti-bullying. “We want this to be a video that once people see it they think about it all day. We want it to help them be the change,” said Lee. Toor, the youngest of the dance crew at 13-years-old, said it is wrong for someone to come after you because you are doing what you love. He said dance has helped him express his feelings in a positive way and that is how

You can channel it all into your moves and not into your fists. — Gurman Toor

the idea for the video themed around the lasting, and sometimes fatal, effects of bullying. “If I get really angry at something I can go home in front of a mirror and just dance it out. You can channel it all into your moves and not into your fists,” said Toor. Choosing to take this path to speak out and raise awareness has earned them scholarships to the national annual Street Groove Hip Hop Dance Convention taking place in Vancouver this weekend. Dream High Crew posted their video on YouTube and Garib shared it with her network of colleagues and friends, when it was seen by Alex Pesusich, the director of the Groove Street Productions. “There are going to be a lot of amazing dance instructors there. People who we have all wanted to meet since we started dancing. These are the people that inspired us to dance,” said Mabalay.

Barbara kicks off film series Western News Staff

The Kitchen Stove Film series is back with five exceptional films in the winter/spring 2013 season. The first to be shown in this series, Barbara, is set in East Germany in the 1980s. The intelligent drama is about an accomplished young physician who is reassigned, as punishment, from a prestigious position in Berlin to an under-funded rural hospital after she applies for an immigration visa to the West. In her new post, Barbara resentfully isolates herself from her colleagues and maintains a clandestine relationship with her West German lover who continues to plan for her defection. Working as a paediatric surgeon she is attentive to her patients but distanced towards colleagues because she feels her future will begin later. However, her devotion to her profession and her genuine concern for a young, pregnant patient soon draws the attention of the chief physician,

Andre, and the two begin to closely bond. As the day of her planned escape approaches, Barbara starts to lose control over herself and her plans, over love. Described as subtle and compelling, the incisive character study delicately weaves attraction and distrust into a profoundly personal and socially complex fabric. “We didn’t want to film a portrait of an oppressed nation and then juxtapose it with love as this innocent, pure and liberating force. We didn’t want any symbols. you just end up decoding them and what’s left is what you knew all along,” said the films director Christian Petzold in his directors statement. The film features a cast of Nina Hoss (Barbara), Ronald Zehrfeld (Andre), Jasna Fritzi Bauer, Mark Waschke and Rainer Bock. This film is rated PG. The Kitchen Stove Film Series is an income development initiative of the Penticton Art Gallery. Broadening the definition of the visual arts to include the medium of film, the series aims to inspire, challenge, educate and entertain while showcasing excellence in the cinematic arts. The series is affiliated with the Toronto International Film Festival Circuit Group. Barbara screens on Jan. 31 at the Landmark Cinema 7 at 4 and 7 p.m. Also showing as part of the 2012 TIFF Student Showcase is TAM by Toan Nguyen from Emily Carr University of Art & Design. The Royal Affair screens on Feb. 21, Rust and Bone on March 14, A Late Quartet on April 4 and The Angles’ Share on April 25. Series tickets for all five films are $48 for Penticton Art Gallery members and students, $55 for non-members. Single tickets can be pre-purchased for $13 at the art gallery or at The Book Shop. All the films will be shown at the Landmark Cinema 7 in Penticton. Limited single tickets may be available at the door for $15.

Dream High Crew will be performing along with other students at Penticton School of Dance on Feb. 2 at the South Main Senior’s Drop-In Centre for the Flavours of India dinner and show. This event is a fundraiser for the school’s scholarship fund. Besides the trio’s hip hop and breakdancing styles, different genres featured include ballet, tap and bollywood. “The money raised at the event will go towards helping kids who can’t otherwise afford to dance. Last year we did well over $30,000 in bursaries and scholarships,” said Jas Garib, fundraiser organizer. “Last year we had almost 100 kids who received a benefit of a scholarship or monthly reduction in fees. At the end of the day giving one child the ability to do something active or to take them off the street and get them into the studio dancing, singing or whatever its worthwhile. If we can do it for 10 or more then it is that much more gratifying.” Tickets are available at the Penticton School of Dance. They are also looking for volunteers for the event. Those interested can contact reception@pentictondance.com for more info. To view the Dream High Crew video www.pentictonwesternnews.com.

Literacy opens up new world Kristi Patton

If words can be weapons, Shirley Fehr has to fight off a full-on war every day. The Summerland woman suffers from dyslexia and, she said, for lack of a better word “cheated” her way through school and situations by becoming canny in the way she asked for things or for help to fill out forms. Coming from a family of avid readers she struggled through school and it wasn’t until the age of 23 she picked up a Harlequin romance novel, suggested by a friend while on a camping trip, that she had a breakthrough. The thin books seemed a less daunting task and she has managed to work her way up from there. “I had what I describe as a 360 degree turn, so words to me are backwards and upside down,” Fehr explains. She might write a sentence and the word “was” will come out as “saw.” While most would catch that in a quick edit, Fehr doesn’t see the mistake, she reads it as “was.” Shining a light on just how difficult things can be for the woman. Fehr pushed through her short novels and took an adult reading class graduating to harder subjects and lengthier books. “Reading is the best kept secret. When I sit down and read a novel I just am in awe in how people sit down and write it and make this great book,” said Fehr. “I look at my life now and I don’t have to worry about doing something if it requires me to read. I essentially have become a full-time student again because my lack for enthusiasm for schooling has changed.” The challenge of reading still grips Fehr, making her job at a local post office a way to continually work at it. “I couldn’t have picked a harder job,” jokes Fehr. “It’s the postal codes because they are number, letter and for my dyslexic brain it can be a jumble. When I do up a package for someone I have to think 10 times harder about it then anyone

else. The problems I have haven’t gone away but with reading new doors have opened up. I just have to be totally focused on my job.” Reading has also opened up a connection with her grandchildren. Fehr said she quite often pulls out a book and cuddles up with her grandkids to read with them. “Now I know what a great gift reading is to not only yourself, but for other people to share that with. It is time I cherish because it is so much fun to see them pick up reading and sitting with them. It’s wonderful,” said Fehr. Fehr’s story is one of many that give the Literacy Now South Okanagan Similkameen reason to celebrate and continue to push for people of all ages to crack open a book and spend time each day reading. This Saturday they are doing just that at Cherry Lane Shopping Centre from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. with activities for the whole family. A free book will be given to each child from Raise-a-Reader. Literary Outreach co-ordinator Joan Chambers said there will be information booths, activities for kids including story-telling and songs, dancing and music. Bubblee Bubblezz will entertain the crowd from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. and prizes will be

handed out. Although the celebration is on Jan. 26, Family Literacy Day is nationally recognized each year on Jan. 27 to raise awareness of the importance of reading and doing other literacy-related activities as a family. They are asking anyone with new or gently used books of children and youth to drop them off at Cherry Lane Shopping Centre to Heap The Honda and help pass along a book to a child. The theme this year is to Unplug and Play, promoting families to take 15 minutes every day to read or do a learning activity that can improve a child’s literacy skills dramatically and can help parents improve their skills as well. “These events are all about informal learning” said Chambers. “It’s the learning that occurs in daily life in the family, in the workplace, and in communities, through the interests and activities of individuals. Informal learning is about the integration of learning and living. We need to support and value it and make it more intentional.” For a complete list of the Literacy Now free activities and events happening throughout the South Okanagan visit www.literacynowso-s.ca.

SOUTH OKANAGAN YOUTH SOCCER ASSOCIATION Emanuel Sequeira/Western News

ALEXA RANAHAN, Hannah Miller, Rebecca Russell and Emily Clark got a taste of gold when they helped Canada’s under-18 women’s team win a national championship in Finland earlier this month. Russell, who coaches the three with the Okanagan Hockey Academy midget team, was an assistant coach for Canada. Clark, pictured below, was slick with her stick, assisting on three goals in the tournament.

more confident and feels that she has an edge. Wearing the Canadian jersey, the Salmon Arm minor hockey product felt a sense of pride. “You feel like you are a part of something so much bigger than yourself,” said Ranahan. “That was the best feeling I think.” For Clark, winning gold a second time was amazing. “Each time you see the logo and put the jersey on, it’s something special,” said Clark. “Proud and pride and just a whole bunch of emotions going through at once. “Everything was calm and everyone was positive,” said Clark of how they felt throughout the game. “Being able to share with my family and my friends, it’s just awesome.” She learned a lot from the experience and said the process of how then won will make her better. “I think I have definitely grown a lot,” she said. “I didn’t want to change my game, but just leading by example and make sure my teammates were comfortable.” Russell was pleased with how the trio performed. She described Clark as being a leader having been there before. “I was able to see great character come out of her,” said Russell. “Alexa Ranahan was one of our defenceman. She is one of our top defenceman here. She played a different role. She played very well. Tough, strong. That grittiness was a big part of our core.” Miller was the youngest and Russell said they knew she would have a lot to learn. “She was a offensive force, a powerplay specialist for us,” said Russell. “She learned a ton along the way.” As a coach, Russell said she had never experienced that before with the pressure and believes it will make her a better coach. “To me it was an experience that I will never forget in my whole hockey career,” said Russell. “To win in that fashion against the Americans. Although heart-breaking for them, it was definitely a moment … to experience it with three of my own players from here made it even more special.”

It was a victorious experience for Okanagan Hockey Academy’s Rebecca Russell, Alexa Ranahan, Emily Clark and Hannah Miller won’t forget. The U.S. had scored with a minute remaining in the first period of the world women’s under-18 gold medal final against Canada and that lead held up late into the third period in Heinola, Finland, Jan. 5. Russell, the assistant coach for Canada, had a hand in helping the team post a come-from behind 2-1 overtime victory. With 22 seconds left in the third period, Canada took a timeout and Russell drew up a plan for the equalizer. While it didn’t work out perfectly, it led to Catherine Dubois tying the game with 13 seconds left. “You get to learn the process, and learn from other coaches that have been there before you, people like Mel Davidson (former national women’s coach), having her around to coach me through that experience, is definitely going to help me,” said Russell, who coaches the Okanagan Hockey Academy female midget team. Fifty-eight seconds into overtime and Karly Heffernan’s goal sent the Canadians into a frenzy. “I still have bruises from trying to get over the bench,” said Miller, the North Vancouver product, who finished with a goal and three points. “The dog pile was insane.” The highlight for the OHA midget player was singing the Canadian anthem with her teammates along the blue line. It was an amazing experience for the 16-yearold who traveled overseas for the first time. Compared to playing with the OHA, she found the pace to be quicker. “Learning how to move your feet and think at the same pace is a big difference,” said Miller, who wasn’t a big fan of the food as she’s not a fish lover. “Being surrounded by the players helped. Watching players helps.” She cherishes sharing the experience with Ranahan, Clark and Russell because she is close to them. For Ranahan, 17, it was the most incredible experience with her family. As the team celebrated, she said there were lots of tears and laughter. “It was kind of a shock because it happened so fast,” she said. “The first thing I thought of was my family in the stands and back home, how happy they were.” When it came to her play, Ranahan felt good. “It was definitely a big step from your club team,” she said. “It’s always easier to play better when you are at a level with people who you can really rely on and trust.” The largest difference she noticed was the speed. “Being a defenceman, you have to transition quickly because U.S. forwards are ridiculously fast,” she said. Ranahan noticed the difference in herself as she is

City offers challenge to triathletes

KEVIN CUTJAR coaches other cyclists during a training session at the community centre this week. Preparations are currently underway for the city’s first indoor triathlon coming up in early February. The event has been a popular topic of discussion among spinning students according to organizer Shelie Best, city recreation co-ordinator.

Emanuel Sequeira Western News Staff

Teaming up with Global Spectrum, the Penticton Recreation Department is hosting an indoor triathlon. The brainchild of Shelie Best, recreation co-ordinator for the city, the triathlon begins with a 15-minute swim in the Community Centre pool. Athletes then have 15 minutes to make the transition to the South Okanagan Events Centre, where they will bike for 30 minutes and run for 20. After brewing the idea in her head, Best spoke to local triathlon coach Kevin Cutjar of Impact Multisport Coaching about doing it. She believes the event, which already has 30 people signed up, will be a success as it’s being talked about in spin classes. “There are people talking about how in winter time when you are training, you are just either swimming or biking,” said Best, whose idea achieves a work goal. “There is no competitive fun events that you can gear for.” Once the triathletes complete the swim, in which they will try and complete and many laps possible, and the bike, the run will take them through the concourse of the SOEC. Winners will receive trophies, and first to third for female and male in each category receive medals. Challenge

Mark Brett/Western News

Penticton has also donated a bike jersey for the top male and female and entry for its race this year. Categories are junior (12 to 17), open (18 to 39) and Masters (40 and over). Best also said this will be a great spectator event. With Steve King announcing, spectators have the option to watch the swim from the SOEC jumbotron then view the rest in the arena. “It’s an introduction for people thinking about triathlon,” she said. “You could be riding beside Jeff Symonds for the whole event.” Symonds and Cutjar are both competing. The triathlon will be on Feb. 10 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Best said she would like to see 48 people sign up and will cap it at 96, but doesn’t expect to get that many the first year. Registration is $52 and includes event, drink ticket and buffet at the Vault following the event and age category awards and draw prizes. Athletes can pick up registration forms at the Bike Barn, Peach City Runner and the Penticton Community Center. Drop off completed registration forms with payment at 325 Power Street. People can also enter online at www.penticton.ca/recreation and enter course number 32758.

Economic recovery ongoing Steve Kidd

Western News Staff

Economics, said Dr. Warren Jestin, is a confidence game. “Confidence in the sense that if businesses don’t have confidence, they won’t spend,” said the chief economist for Scotiabank. “If consumers don’t have confidence, they won’t spend.” That confidence is on it’s way back, said Jestin, who delivered a talk at Okanagan College on the key economic and financial market trends that are likely to influence the Canadian economy through 2013. “The U.S. consumer is finally spending and that should drive the economy back at a fairly fast rate,” said Jestin, who spent a lot of time discussing U.S. politics and economy during his talk, focusing on the struggles the U.S.

federal government is having with the economy. While federal wrangling is likely to continue for some time as Republicans and Democrats find more ways to disagree, the U.S. is still seen as a low-risk investment on the world market. “Why? Because U.S. business has strong balance sheets in general, strongest I have ever seen,” said Jestin. “The good news is U.S. consumers are starting to spend. We are seeing it in a wide variety of ways. U.S. car sales are going up. We are also finding that the U.S. housing industry is coming back in a big way.” It is a slow recovery for the housing market, but the direction is clear, according to Jestin. “The mood has changed, Americans are buying houses

now,” he said. “This has a major impact on one key industry in B.C. and that is the forest products industry. If you look at lumber prices, and you look at the outlook for lumber, it has changed very fundamentally.” The outlook for B.C. resources is especially strong, thanks to the development of an offshore market, principally in Asian markets, at the same time as Canada’s traditional export market begins to recover. Those markets mean more to Canada and B.C., however, than simply resource exports. As income goes up in many developing nations, Jestin said, so is demand rising. “There is a new buyer out there. Protein consumption is going up. It’s going to affect grains, oil seeds, it is going to affect many other areas of agricul-

ture,” he said. “We are talking about a structural shift in global demand. There are new consumers out there. There are more cars and trucks sold in China than there are in the sum total of Canada, the U.S. and Mexico.” For the Okanagan Valley, he said, there are more tourism dollars out there. While B.C. tourism has traditionally focused on the American market, their tourism spending has been eclipsed, as has that of Germany, Britain and France. “So this year, who is number one? China. It’s unbelievable,” said Jestin. “Many of these tourists haven’t started travelling yet, globally, and they are spending more than any other country in the world. “The world is changing. The market opportunities are changing.”

College business expo brings career opportunities Western News Staff

Okanagan College’s School of Business and its Student, Graduate and Co-op Employment Centre are presenting the sixth annual business expo and employment fair on Feb. 6. The event will feature 60 businesses from the Okanagan Valley and beyond, many of which will be hiring. The Business Expo and Employment Fair will be held at the Kelowna campus of Okanagan College in the Atrium of the Centre of Learning Building from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The event will give students and community members the opportunity to speak and

While the event will take place in Kelowna, organizer Jamie Morrow wants people to know there are a number of regional and national companies who are looking for staff throughout Canada. “We have got three national banks recruiting at this event as well as a number of multinational organizations and we want to let people know there are opportunities for people across the region,” said Morrow. “This event provides an excellent opportunity for anyone considering a new career or employment in the Okanagan. By bringing in-

dustry experts together with those seeking jobs and careers we are able to offer a direct line of communication and networking for job seekers. This fair is focused on providing people with career options and valuable information to help them find the job they want.” A host of employers will be on site with information booths set up to support job seekers. Target, Kiewit, Capri Insurance, The City of Kelowna, Tolko Industries Ltd, Valley First and Urban Systems Ltd. are just a few of the 60 participating employers.

Mamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hands

I saw you hide your hands in line, behind that lady fair, I noticed too, hers soft and whiteImmaculate from care. But Ma, I say, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no disgrace to have workinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; hands like you, and had she lived the life you have, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d have hands just like it too. But her hands have never hauled in wood, or worked in Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good earth. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never felt the bitter cold, or chopped ice for waitinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; stock, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never doctored sick ones, or dressed a horseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hock. theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never pulled a hip-locked calf, or packed water to the barn. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve probably never patched blue jeans, or had worn olâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; socks to darn. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never touched a youngâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;n, or caressed a fevered head, with hands so gently folded, all night beside his bed. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never scrubbed a kitchen floor, or done dishes every day. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never guided with those hands a child whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lost the way. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never made a Christmas gift, shaped by a lovinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; hand. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never peeled apples, nor vegetables theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve canned. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never worn a blister, or had calluses to show, for all theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done for others, and the kindnesses I know. So you see, my dearest Mamayours are hands of love. And I bet the Lord noticed when he greeted you above.

ARTHRITIS

Penticton Western News Friday, January 25, 2013

Pain free in 2 weeks!

This is what happened to me personally. After suffering for years I desperately tried everything, drugs, natural products, physiotherapy, acupuncture, magnets and nothing was of any real help. Finally I had relief in 2 weeks by taking shark cartilage that was specially processed to preserve the natural active ingredients. This is the kind we are now promoting. I realized then that there are over 50 million men and women that are battling the same illness and getting treatments that are not working well, otherwise we would not have this ongoing huge health problem. In the last 10 years we have helped tens of thousands of men and women to have less pain or no pain at all. This is a by-product of the American food industry. No sharks are caught because of their bones/cartilage. Don’t let activists confuse you. Nick A. Jerch, President We have real EVIDENCE that it works. On our web site you find over 100’s of testimonials with full names and towns. All 100% true. Skeptics may call them. Here are some examples:< Doctor suggested knee replacement after all his options failed with drugs and cortisone shots in knee and lower back. I recommend Bell Shark Cartilage to those millions suffering needlessly like I did for 40 #1 years with arthritis in my knees. It's a shame that I was given drugs and injections all these years when a natural medicine could have spared me the endless torture day and night. Pat Laughlin, Coldwater, ON <My hip is 95% pain free. Pain killing drugs mask and Bell Shark Cartilage heals. Rebecca Hite, Oroville, CA<I tried another brand and pain came back. 2 weeks on Bell and pain is gone again. Gert Dupuis, Hanmer, ON<Cancelled knee replacement. I was in pain and limping. Have no more pain now. Can square dance for hours. Anton Melnychuk, Porcupine Plain, SK.<For 32 years I cried barrels of tears. Was in and out of hospitals costing society tens of thousands of dollars. I have taken many thousands of pills that nearly killed me. Finally 3 bottles of Bell Shark Cartilage costing les s than $100 stopped a lifetime of suffering without side effects. Eleanor Sauson, Shigawake, QC<Others write: Can walk again for hours…Climb stairs without hanging on to railing…First time in 15 years can sleep at night…Rheumatoid pain in joints down 90%, same for my sister. Bell relays 100% truthful user’s free speech. No need to make claims. No money is paid for it. No questions asked guarantee.

By Dr. Chakib Hammoud, M.H.,PhD.

The USDA now recommends to eat 50% alkaline food (vegetables, legumes, salads, fruit). Health professionals suggest 80% alkaline food. Unfortunately, North American people eat 90% acidic food (meat, pasta, rice, bread, pastries, sweets, junk food). If you cannot change your diet to USDA’s 50% or closer to 80% alkaline food, consider to supplement with a natural health product that helps to increase your pH alkaline level close to a healthy #7. Ask for Bell Acidic Stomach/Alkaline Balance #39. It’s inexpensive, has no side effects and may eliminate the need for anti-acid pills many people take. As a bonus, an alkaline balanced body prevents many illnesses. See guarantee printed on box. < Reflux gave me a sore throat and I could not sing in the church choir anymore. After taking Bell #39 I have no more reflux and rejoice in singing again. Helene Giroux, 65, Quebec, QC < Have family history of heartburn. For last 10 years I suffered a lot with acid reflux. I told all family members about #39 being all natural, giving quick relief and having no side effects. Michael Fasheh, 49, Port Ranch, CA< Very happy with acid reflux relief. Last 4 years had increasing reflux despite taking anti-acid products. I am also trying to eat more alkaline food. Grzegorz Smirnow, 43, Mt. Prospect, IL

CONTROL WEIGHT = CONTROL BLOOD SUGAR

By Dr. Chakib Hammoud, M.H.,PhD.

Long term weight control without controlling blood sugar is destined to fail. This is why we have an epidemic of obesity. How it works: Stops the “roller coaster” of cravings and appetite to eat foods like sugar and starches that cause high blood glucose levels, which then brings on your pancreas to automatically pump insulin into your blood stream. Subsequently the high level of insulin precipitates low levels of blood glucose and cravings for more sugar and starchy carbohydrates (breads, noodles, crackers, cereals, french fries) which you don’t need and therefore it goes into unwanted fat storage and being overweight. Experts now recognize these basic facts.#40 Bell Blood Sugar Imbalance helps to stop this vicious cycle and puts you in control. Dr. Hammond says this natural product works 10 times better because it reprograms our brain and pancreas to release insulin in a controlled manner. Helpful #40 non-fattening eating suggestions in the box. Fibers and exercise like walking are beneficial and help after you control the underlying basic blood sugar imbalance. < Working in a health food store I heard people saying how well #40 works. I tried it myself. Finally a product that controls my blood sugar much better than what anything else we had in the store. Thank you for helping people around the world. Irene M. Urdialez, 43, Brynton Beach, FL < My medical indicated pre-diabetic. I took #40. When re-tested readings were fine. This helped my metabolism and my weight is down 25 lbs. I am grateful to the health food store people for their advice. Michael O’Brien, 60, Rutherglen, ON < I finally found the right approach to lose weight. I tried for 3 years to lose weight. After starting #40 my blood sugar is stable now. I was able to stop overeating and lost my excess weight. Sara John, 40, Kitchener, ON < I was struggling for 15 years with weight gain in spite of diet and exercise. I was diagnosed as pre-diabetic. I will forever be grateful to the store manager that explained to me to take #40 and read suggestions to avoid fattening foods. I lost 70 lbs. My fasting blood sugar is now 92. My 2 hour post meal glucose level is now 92 as well. My new shape raised my self-esteem and gave me immeasurable peace of mind. Karen Maples, 55, Clarksville, TN <Diabetic eliminated high blood sugar levels with #40. My readings were 140 to 200 and are now 99 to 122 range where I want it to be. Before I bought about 10 different supplement that were more expensive and didn’t work as well. I also lost some weight. A great improvement in my health and daily living.
