MAKING DREAMS COME TRUE — Const. Laura Hirst of the Penticton RCMP is served by Orange County sheriff Capt. Mike Toledo in advance of today’s DreamLift Day fundraiser at the Penticton Wendy’s restaurant. The sheriff will be joining other dignitaries and special guests who will be waiting on patrons from 6 a.m. to closing. Money raised will go towards helping send special needs children to Disneyland through the Sunshine Foundation of Canada. Other Southern Interior Wendy’s will also be taking part in the 19th annual event.

PLAN ALTERS POLITICAL LANDSCAPE Joe Fries Western News Staff

Numbers shouldn’t be the deciding factor for determining how Canada’s federal electoral boundaries are redrawn, say local politicians who are upset with a plan to sever the historical tie between Penticton and Summerland. Canada’s soon-to-be 338 federal ridings are drawn so that the population in each is about the same. The map is studied once a decade by commissions in each province and adjustments made to accommodate population growth. The proposed new map for B.C., which was tabled Monday in the House of Commons, adds six new ridings and dramatically recasts the Southern Interior. Most notably, Penticton, Oliver and Osoyoos would join with Trail and Castlegar to form the

new South Okanagan-West Kootenay riding, which would stretch north to include Nakusp. Summerland would then fall in with Peachland, part of Kelowna, Merritt, Princeton and Keremeos in a new riding called Central Okanagan-Similkameen-Nicola. Penticton Mayor Dan Ashton noted the new ridings would split Summerland and Penticton for the first time ever just to balance population numbers. “These lines to me are wrong,” he said. “This is the issue when you have to attach numbers to it and draw lines based on numbers. They should be drawn based on trade… and commonalities, and they’re not.” The electoral quota on which the new ridings are based is 104,763 people, and in the Southern Interior the new ridings vary from that by as much as 15 per cent.

Janice Perrino thinks an exception should also be made to keep her community connected to Penticton. “We’re talking about 11,000 people,” she said. “I would hardly call it huge.” Besides obvious links in the administration of education and health care, Perrino added, the two cities also benefit from being able to lobby a single member of Parliament. The new boundaries will be studied this spring by a House of Commons committee that will accept MPs’ written objections, which will then be sent back to the commissions for consideration. The final realignment will be submitted to Canada’s chief electoral officer in September. John Hall, who chaired the B.C. commission, said his group will consider further changes based on input from MPs. “We look at everything. You can’t not listen

to people, in my opinion,” he said. Hall noted, however, that while his commission heard loud and clear at public hearings last fall that there were concerns with the PentictonSummerland split, it couldn’t find a workable solution to meet the electoral quota. “All I can say about Summerland is it remains not the ideal solution from the point of view of some people in Summerland, but I think it would be less ideal to lump them in with the West Kootenays,” he said. Okanagan-Coquihalla MP Dan Albas said he also found “some areas of concern” in the proposal and will work with colleagues to persuade the commission to “fine-tune” the boundaries to better reflect community input and address “accessibility issues” for people in the more farflung areas of the new ridings.

A South Okanagan man with an inclination for younger boys was found guilty of three breaches of his probation. Graham Dodge approached a 12-year-old and 13-year-old boy on separate occasions at the Penticton Public Library. Previous charges of sexual assault and interference on a person under 16 put him on strict conditions including not to be in communication with anyone under that age and not to use the Internet unless with the permission of his probation officer. Having been behind bars since he was arrested almost 14 months ago, Justice Alison Beames sentenced him to serve an additional 30 days and put him on 30 months of probation. “I have taken into account the seriousness of the breaches and the fact that the contacts with the two children were relatively innocuous, other than the one case that might have led to something more had it not been for the watchful eye of the librarian,” said Justice Alison Beames. Dodge, 25, told police he had “relapsed” because

one of the boys fit his type and he made the wrong choice to speak with them. One of the boys told RCMP Dodge introduced himself at the library computer stations under a different name, said he was from Vancouver and could help the boy break into the music industry. Two days later the librarian noticed Dodge speaking to another boy at the computer stations and she thought Dodge was sitting unusually close to him. It was a few hours later when the first boy Dodge contacted came into the library with his mother. The librarian again witnessed Dodge talking to a boy she believed he did not know and confronted him. The librarian went with her hunches and called RCMP. Minutes later Dodge was found outside

the library and arrested. Both of the boys told RCMP Dodge never touched them, but one of them said Dodge had invited him over to watch movies. Dodge told police that he wasn’t sure if he would have taken it to the point of being sexual with one of the youths, but had gone through what the experience would be like in his head. “He was a really cute boy,” Dodge said. Defence council indicated Dodge is trying to get into the year-long Baldy Hughes Therapeutic Community program in Prince George which deals with men suffering from all kinds of addiction when he is released from KRCC. Dodge said he very much views his attraction to younger boys as an addiction. Conditions of Dodge’s

bail will prevent him from being on the Internet for 12 months unless he has prior approval from probation. Dodge will also have to abstain from intentional contact with anyone under the age of 16, not be in any public, swimming area where people of that age are likely to gather and is not allowed at the Penticton Public Library. The judge said the last condition only applies to Penticton because she did not want Dodge bumping into the two boys. Dodge pled guilty in 2008 for a number of breaches and charges of sexual assault and sexual interference on a person under 16. The pre-sentence report at that time showed he scored high on a test that determined he was at 26 per cent likelihood to reoffend within five years.

The biggest change to Albas’s current riding would be the addition of part of Kelowna, plus Princeton and the area south to the Canada-U.S. border. The Conservative MP, who recently moved from Penticton to West Kelowna, would not comment, however, on which riding he might contest in the next election, scheduled for October 2015. “I’ve not even made the decision that I’m going to stand again for re-election,” Albas said. B.C. Southern Interior MP Alex Atamanenko is in Russia on a trade mission

and unavailable for comment. Under the new alignment, however, the NDP politician would lose Nelson, a party stronghold, to the Kootenay-Columbia riding. That would hurt his chances for reelection, said political observer Wolf Depner. Atamanenko “is going to be in a much tougher spot now. If Nelson falls out of his riding, that’s a good chunk of his vote there,” said Depner, a former journalist who’s now a doctoral candidate in political science at UBC-Okanagan.

Project will reach for the stars Work begins on new radio telescope at Dominion Radio Astrophysical Observatory Joe Fries Western News Staff

Work began last week on a trial version of a cutting-edge radio telescope near Penticton that will look back billions of years into the history of the universe to give scientists a better understanding of its future. The $11-million Canadian Hydrogen Intensity-Mapping Experiment should help explain why and how the universe is expanding, according to Dr. Mark Halpern, an astrophysicist at UBC, one of three schools participating in the project at the Dominion Radio Astrophysical Observatory near White Lake. “Something happened to make our universe so big and so old, and something’s happening now to make (its expansion) accelerate,” Halpern said. “It’s the basic working of what makes the universe be the way it is that we’re trying to understand.” The telescope will analyze electromagnetic radiation to map the distribution of hydrogen — one of the earliest, most abundant elements — in different parts of the universe. Radiation coming from the most distant galaxies will allow researchers to peer back billions of years into the past, and they can then deduce how the universe expanded. Halpern said dark energy is believed to be a key factor that’s driven expansion, although little is known about it. “Dark to astronomers just means it’s an object that doesn’t give off light, so I can’t see it,” Halpern explained. “It’s an energy density that’s causing the universe to expand. It sounds cool, but it just means we don’t know what it is.” The full telescope will feature five half-pipes, each about 100 metres long and 20 metres wide, made of wire mesh that will collect the electromagnetic radiation in the form of radio waves. The data will then be analyzed at partner labs at UBC, McGill University and the University of Toronto. Work is only underway now, however, on a smaller test telescope that will be about a 10th of the size of the full array. It should go into operation in April, and if it works as planned, the full-scale model will go up in late 2014, Halpern said. He added that the White Lake site was selected because the valley in which it’s located is “radio-quiet,” and the observatory is already staffed with experts in the field of radio astronomy. Penticton firm Greyback Construction has been hired to

oversee the build, and project manager Mike Jereb said it’s unlike anything he’s ever done, although “everybody is pretty excited about it.” Greyback is looking after the concrete work on which the equipment will rest, and will then oversee the precise installation of the telescope components by another company. “In typical buildings it’s OK if you’re off by a half an inch or a couple millimetres,” Jereb said. “But this one we’ve got to make sure we survey it properly and it’s in exactly the right spot…. And not only that, but this entire structure has to align due north and due south perfectly.” Jereb added that the area under the telescope is archeologically sensitive due to the possible presence of native artifacts, so rather than clearing and levelling the entire site, workers

will disturb only as much ground is necessary to put in the concrete foundations. First Nations monitors will also be on site to observe the work. Up to $4.6 million in grant money is available for the project from the Canada Foundation for Innovation. Sean Dougherty, who works for National Research Council of Canada as the director of its Dominion Radio Astrophysical Observatory, said his staff is excited about the new addition. “The observatory is… providing a facility for the university community to come in and do a world-leading experiment and world-leading science. That’s really what we’re all about,” Dougherty said. He added that if the telescope works as intended, “it’s going to be game-changing.”

Court moves forward with charges in brutal attack Kristi Patton Western News Staff

After six adjournments, progress is finally being made on the charges against David Bobbitt, who is accused of a violent sexual assault on a Penticton woman. Bobbitt is charged with aggravated assault, two counts of unlawful confinement or imprisonment, aggravated sexual assault, two counts of uttering threats and assault with a weapon stemming from a incident on July 30, 2011. A 22-year-old Penticton mom and her tod-

Bobbitt

dler son are alleged to have been held inside Dave’s Second Hand Store by Bobbitt for over 10 hours. He is accused of severely beating the woman, sexually assaulting her and confining her to a bed in his store which was located in a building he was

leasing on Ellis Street. Bobbitt sat silently with his hands cuffed

as he appeared via video in Penticton court on Monday. While Bobbitt was ordered to stand trial in June, the specific dates for his trial have not been set. Defence council James Pennington told the Supreme Court justice on Monday that discussions are ongoing with Crown counsel regarding a hearing for dangerous offender status. Justice Alison Beames voiced her displeasure that there have been six fix-a-date adjournments since the preliminary inquiry was held and a decision made that there is sufficient evidence to go to trial.

She asked the defence if the discussions with Crown counsel have included a plan for pleas and possible sentencing. Pennington said that was “exactly” the case, but Bobbitt needed time to think about things. Bobbitt was arrested on Aug. 3, 2011 when RCMP received a tip from a farmer who recognized the man on his property located between Oliver and Osoyoos. He has been in custody since then. Bobbitt is scheduled to next appear in court on Feb. 25 at 10 a.m. when some of the matters discussed on Monday are anticipated to be addressed.

Pressure needed for PRH upgrade Joe Fries Western News Staff

A top official from Interior Health told local politicians last week they’ll need to get tough with decision-makers in the B.C. government if they want funding for a new hospital tower in Penticton. “I think you need to be in their faces,” said Norm Embree, chair of the IH board of directors. He delivered the advice at a meeting of the board of the OkanaganSimilkameen Regional Hospital District, which has nearly $30 million already set aside for the proposed $300-million ambulatory care tower for Penticton Regional Hospital. The project is at the top of the wish list the health authority has submitted to government, yet lower-ranked projects

A conceptuAl drAwing shows the new ambulatory care tower proposed for penticton regional Hospital. the $300-million, four-storey tower would feature a medical school, surgical suites, outpatient services and an oncology centre.

in Vernon and Kamloops have been funded ahead of it. Embree, who was asked to explain why, said the answer lies with members of the B.C. Liberal government’s treasury board. “It is basically their call. All we can do is keep advocating for our list, as it exists,” Embree said. “After that, it’s out of our hands.” Embree said the government’s decision to jump the queue in Vernon and finish off two shelled-in floors in its new hospital tower was a result of public pressure there. “That was done because the community and

the doctors and the press and the whole community got behind that project and made it No. 1. We didn’t,” he said. “Our funders and our masters decided that’s where they were going to spend their money.” Penticton Coun. Garry Litke, also a hospital board member, said it was “very disturbing to hear that No. 5 on the list can be elevated to No. 1 on the list because of a squeaky wheel. “It seems to me that that’s not a principled way of making a decision,” he said. “It may be disturbing,” Embree said, “but it’s the way it is.” Tom Siddon suggest-

ed the region’s representatives in Victoria have been ineffective in their efforts to lobby their own Liberal government. Penticton MLA Bill Barisoff is set to retire, while Boundary-Similkameen MLA John Slater has announced he won’t run again and is “persona non grata with his own party,” said Siddon, who represents KaledenOkanagan Falls on the hospital board. After the meeting, Janice Perrino, who chairs the hospital board, said Embree’s advice to go after the government wasn’t news to her. She was more interested in hearing what Interior Health had been

doing behind the scenes to lobby for the project, since it hasn’t done so publicly. Perrino said the updates seemed to stop once the wish list and business case were submitted to government. “They did their part, and then it’s been quiet ever since,” Perrino said. Now she’s asking local doctors, politicians and the public to band together to make the hospital expansion a priority for government. “I hope that the public realizes that they need to say a few things to their public officials… They need to call government and ask where our hospital is,” Perrino said. And “our doctors are the finest, but they’ve been quiet. It’s time they ramp up.” So far, the South Okanagan Similkameen Medical Foundation has committed to fundraising $20 million for the expansion, while the hospital district has pledged to come up with another $120 million. That leaves $160 million for senior governments to fund. A conceptual version of the four-storey ambulatory care tower features a medical school, surgical suites, outpatient clinics and an oncology centre, and also includes a fivestorey parkade next door.

iH assumes control of care home Western News Staff

Interior Health has placed another high-level administrator at the beleaguered Summerland Seniors Village in what it described a “rare and unusual” measure. The health authority announced late Friday it appointed the administrator to oversee residential care at the privately owned facility, which has been under intense scrutiny of late. Provincial legislation allows IH to appoint an administrator to run even a private community care fa-

cility if there are reasonable grounds to believe that there is a risk to the health or safety of a person in care. “This is a rare and unusual step but one that we feel is necessary,” Dr. Andrew Larder, a senior IH medical health officer, said in a press release. “Interior Health has also brought in additional nursing staff to work at the site to help bolster the clinical leadership we feel is crucial.” The health authority funds 75 of 80 residential-care beds at the facility and 18 of 36 assisted-living suites. Summerland Seniors Village

also boasts 70 independent-living units. It was in one of the independentliving units where 91-year-old Alfredo Bonaldi was found near death in November after he was stricken with a suspected case of food poisoning. His absence at meal times should have caused staff to check on him, but didn’t, and he died in a hospital two weeks later. Multiple investigations were launched after Bonaldi’s family went public with the story. The facility is owned by Retirement Concepts.

court time running out for murder trial Kristi Patton Western News Staff

The trial for the second-degree murder of Penticton teen Andrew McAdam potentially could be changing venues. In Penticton Supreme Court on Monday, Justice Alison Beames told defence council for 20-year-old Jamie Wolanski, who is charged with second-degree murder, there are only two blocks of jury trial dates in 2013 available for Penticton. The trial is anticipated to take up to 10 days. “The longer you wait, the less likely any dates will be available,” said Beames.

Alternatively, Beames said if an application is made for a change of venue to Kelowna, it could provide more dates if that application is approved. Wolanski is accused of the second-degree murder of McAdam who died after being stabbed at a Penticton graduation bush party in the Carmi area in June 2011. The party was a annual tradition known to grads as “sunset” and happened the evening before the last day of school. A similar party occurred annually the night before the first day of school called “sunrise.” Wolanski is due back in court on Feb. 25 on the second-degree murder charge, but Beames advised the lawyers that there should be discussion before that about potential trial dates or applications to change venues.

Okanagan making dreams come true

I

t isn’t often people have a chance to help make a child’s dream come true. So when the opportunity arises, we should make every effort to ensure the chance doesn’t slip away. South Okanagan residents now have just such a chance. The 19th annual Wendy’s Dreamlift Day runs today at all nine Wendy’s Restaurants in the Thompson-Okanagan. Staff and management donate their wages for the day, with local dignitaries also on hand at the restaurant to help fill the orders of the seemingly endless stream of customers. Proceeds from the day all go to the Sunshine Foundation of Canada. The money allows the foundation to take dozens of Okanagan children with life-threatening illnesses or severe physical disabilities to Disneyland. The trip provides a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for the children to forget about their medical conditions for a day and just enjoy being a kid. The Dreamlifts create lasting memories for some very special kids, and the overwhelming support shown for the cause by the South Okanagan is also something that is hard to forget. Last year’s Wendy’s Dreamlift Day collected $114,276, bringing the total to more than $1 million raised for the Sunshine Foundation since its inception in 1995. With such a deserving cause, it’s not hard to understand why Wendy’s Dreamlift Day holds such a special place for South Okanagan residents. “People are lined up outside during the event and most of them don’t care,” said Steve Tuck, PENTICTON WESTERN past-president of the Sunshine Foundation’s Interior chapter. Sometimes dreams can come true. And residents from throughout the South Okanagan play a big role in making it happen. If you don’t believe it, just head down to Wendy’s today and find out for yourself.

New season for ‘School Wars’ Like a bad reality show about a dysfunctional family, B.C. School Wars has lurched to life again for the 2013 election. Coming soon to billboards and buses across the province: staged pictures of sad-faced kids crammed into dirty classrooms by a heartless government. It doesn’t even matter which government. This ritual combat went on through Social Credit and NDP governments too. Premier Christy Clark opened the new season with her promised pitch to restructure bargaining. It suggested splitting up bargaining into traditional wage and benefit talks, and a separate table and fund for classroom size and support. Cast in her familiar role of the sullen, rebellious teenager, BCTF president Susan Lambert staged a news conference to distort and mock the government’s offer. A 10-year deal if we give up bargaining wages and classroom conditions? “Ludicrous.” What’s ludicrous is her characterization of a formula to link teacher pay to nurses, post-secondary faculty and other government workers. Nurses are renowned for getting raises when

B.C. Views no one else does, so this should be an opportunity for these powerful unions to co-ordinate. But the BCTF can’t get along with other unions any more than it can negotiate with any discernible competence. Lambert falsely claimed there was no consultation on the proposal. This reminded me how she low-balled the costs of her union’s demands by hundreds of millions during what passed for negotiations in last year’s strike season. Behind the scenes, the BCTF executive and the school district bargaining agent had just settled on a mutual costing model. What this means is the school

districts, which have to make payroll and balance budgets, have convinced the BCTF to stop misrepresenting costs. I’ll believe that when I see it. Before Education Minister Don McRae had even spoken, BCTF vice-president Glen Hansman was growling his reply on Twitter: See you in court. That message presumably also goes for premier-in-waiting Adrian Dix, unless he replaces the hated B.C. Liberals in May, then quickly kneels before the BCTF and extends the key to the provincial treasury. Two generations of British Columbians have been bullied by this bad drama, since Bill Vander Zalm decided an industrial union bargaining structure was just the ticket for public schools. Students are taught by example, if not by blatant propaganda in classrooms, that all problems are solved by demanding more money from the government. After this conditioning, older students are sometimes pressed into service as union pickets. There’s your Social Justice class, kids. Sorry about those sports teams and field trips, but we need those as bargaining

chips to get more paid leave time. To state the obvious, Clark and McRae staged this as a preelection event to frame the issue. They knew their effort would be greeted as a declaration of war. The main reason the BCTF agreed to a contract extension with a wage freeze last year? It wasn’t the blindingly obvious fact that every other public sector union had already taken two zeroes. It was strictly tactics. The delay sets up the latest rematch of these old warriors in the spring election. The plan is to get the dreaded B.C. Liberals out and then start working over the weaker, more union-dependent NDP. That’s who caved in earlier and gave the BCTF broad control over staffing levels, the proverbial key to the treasury. Along with basic math and economics, a point the BCTF seems unable to grasp is that its strategy is self-defeating. Those sad kids are making more and more parents seek a better deal.

Community comes through in times of crisis We’ve heard that “it takes a village to raise a child,” but often it takes a community to handle a crisis. Recently I experienced this truth when my carbon monoxide detector chirped in the middle of Saturday night. I scrambled out of bed and saw my stove clock blinking, my refrigerator light dim, and no red light on my workstation surge protector. Then I smelled something electrical smoldering and called the fire department. Soon I had four burly firefighters in my manufactured home and then a city lineman. With power surging, electronics and lights failing, and diagnosis inconclusive, crew chief Ken said the power to my home must be shut down and I needed shelter. You know you have good neighbours when you call at 3:30 a.m. and ask if you can spend the rest of the night on their couch and they immediately come and fetch you. I lived with

Politics hits new low

I know Marji Basso personally and politically and have never doubted her integrity or qualification to represent the constituents of Boundary-Similkameen. The so-called inside information Mr. Tsakumis alludes to is reminiscent of a comment made by the new Liberal candidate Linda Larson who alluded to “knowing and understanding the reasons” John Slater was dropped by the Liberal party. I cringe at the quote “neither Basso nor Slater have the principled judgment to be in public life”; who is this virtuous man? A good reporter would not make a definitive statement of suitability based on his/her moral point of view. Your paper is a party to an attempt to destroy the candidates with judgmental and mor-

Bruce and Dayle and was merrily folded into their pre-holiday family life as the “refugee neighbour” for the next three days as we dealt with the electrical issue in my home. Park managers, Rosalee and Gary, along with the park’s electrical contractor, G. Little, tackled my situation immediately on Sunday morning, and by Monday morning, Ken and Paul had diagnosed a fault in the neutral wire of the underground supply cable to my home affecting my 120-volt service and had contacted the city to get immediate permanent overhead electrical connection. Guardian Heating came out as soon as power was restored and Marcus installed heaters until a new circuit board arrived. Penticton Appliance had a good refurbished stove and Connie had it installed and the old one hauled out the very next day.

Chief’s credibility lacking

Chief Spence’s “I’ll die for my people” is a con, and it undermines credibility in legitimate claims First Nations may have for more assistance from governments. To suggest that caving in to Chief Spence’s hunger strike would be to save her life is an insult to Canadian taxpayers, who are being taken to the cleaners again. The Attawapiskat Band is filthy rich with millions of dollars in assets, including close to $10 million in the stock market, and about $85 million in gross income each year.

The park owner was in daily contact with management and authorized full payment for all costs incurred, including remuneration for damaged electrical components and equipment in my home. I am so grateful to all these people, companies and the city who formed the community responding to my crisis. And by way of caution, do remember the importance of monitoring the health of the electrical service to your home. If warning devices hadn’t sounded as electrical surging in my 120-volt line fried their innards when I was home, I could have returned to an ash heap. Friends, thanks. I had an especially happy holiday season filled with gratitude. Merle Kindred Penticton

Chief Spence and her close friends and councilors are living high off the hog while the children she is responsible for live in sewerinfested shacks. Gambling on the stock market with the millions of dollars put in her trust, money desperately needed for basic needs, education and health care, should be good for a few years in jail. Lawyers and politicians who knowingly and willingly allow this incredible travesty to perpetuate should be tried for the same crimes, and suffer the same consequences. Chief Spence has violated trust between the chief and the band members who depend upon her decisions for their very existence. Chief Spence has become a national disgrace.

Grateful for kindness

Many times I think there isn’t enough appreciation shown to others in this world. When Lloyd passed away in November, I have nothing to offer but lots of thankfulness for the kindness of others. Thank you to the home care workers, the Okanagan Falls firemen, the ambulance people, all the doctors and nurses who attended. Also, to everyone for the phone calls, cards, food sent to the house during this time. Thank you to the funeral home and the pastors also. Everyone was very professional and kind.

Uranium remains a concern with Faulder water Joe Fries Western News Staff

Six years after Interior Health issued a warning over the uranium content in Faulder’s water supply, the regional district is still figuring out the most cost-effective solution to the problem. Earlier this month, the Regional District of Okanagan-Similkameen issued a request for proposals from companies interested in supplying the equipment necessary to remove uranium from the water. Doug French, the RDOS public works manger, said the RFP was issued “just to see what’s on the market” and at what price. He’s also wrestling with the issue of permanent supply. The level of the Meadow Valley aquifer, from which about 80 homes in

Faulder are supplied, dropped dramatically in 2010 and forced the RDOS to look at other options. The best alternative was a $2-million pipeline that would have connected the community to the Summerland municipal supply, but it was ruled out as too costly. The Meadow Valley aquifer recharged in 2011 and removed some of the urgency from the situation, and the RDOS is still trying to decide whether it should keep its current well, drill a new one, or buy one that’s already in production. French said he’d prefer to use the existing well, but its ongoing ability to supply the area remains “largely a great unknown.” On the other hand, “If I drop a new well into that aquifer, I’m still going to get uranium. So I’ll still have the problem of getting it out.”

SALE STARTS WEDNESDAY!

He’s hoping the way forward will be made clearer by the estimated costs for uranium treatment put forward by vendors who respond to the RFP, which closes Feb. 5. Uranium content only became an issue in 2007 when Interior Health issued a water-quality advisory that followed Health Canada’s decision to decrease the acceptable uranium concentration in drinking water from 0.1 milligrams per litre to 0.02. Faulder’s water averages 0.028 mg/l, according to the RFP. Michael Brydon, the RDOS director for the area, said his constituents have been “extremely patient.” “There’s only 80 houses on that system and we’re looking at some very big numbers, so we have to move very carefully. We just can’t afford to do something and have a huge budget overrun,” he explained.

“With this project we’ve sort of been waiting to see how the aquifer reacts, because using the existing aquifer is by far the cheaper alternative. But on the other hand, (the level) fluctuates so wildly we’re trying to collect some data and the longer (it’s collected) the better.” There was up to $1 million in grant money for the project, Brydon said, although the total available now will depend on what systems the RDOS selects. He confirmed, though, that there’s still no timeline to sink the Faulder water issue for good. “It’s moving so slowly, I can’t give you an answer,” Brydon said. “We have to get moving on this this year though, because the grants do have deadlines.”

Board in place for Penticton Tourism Steve Kidd

Western News Staff

After more than a year of constant change, Penticton Tourism finally has a full board of directors once more. Miranda Halladay of Elephant Island Winery, who was elected as chair of the new board, says it’s a tremendous step in the right direction for Penticton’s tourism future. “I think that the framework that is in place really does a great job of recognizing the diversity of tourism stakeholders in the region and represents them in a correct way,” she said. Besides Halladay, the executive of the new board includes Sally Pierce (Global Spectrum) as vice-chair, Chuck Loewen (City of Penticton) as treasurer and Alex Long (Ramada and Coast Hotels) as secretary. Sitting as directors are: Diana Stirling (Loco Landing), Cameron Smith (Joy Road Catering), Sheila Perapalkin, Laura Carleton (Challenge Penticton), Leslie Gabriel (Penticton Indian Band), Lori Pike (Township 7 winery) and Robert Appelman, (Lakeside Villa). “From a day-to-day perspective, the operations have continued through the changes that have happened at the board level over the past year,” said Jessie Campbell, CEO of Penticton Tourism. “However, now having a complete board of directors for 2013 is steering the ship in the most positive direction for tourism industry stakeholders.” In November 2011, Penticton council awarded the contract to provide tourism, economic development and visitor information services to the new Penticton Business Development Group. Previously, the Penticton Chamber of Commerce handled the contract for these services. Shortly after the announcement, however, the Penticton Hospitality Association expressed concern that hotel and motel owners were not consulted about the change. As a result, operators voted against allowing the PBDG to handle the approximate $425,000 fund generated from the additional hotel room tax. Since then, Penticton and Wine Country Tourism has continued working to maintain the area’s tourism profile and services, but now has a full operating structure again. “There was some flux last year in 2012. And so I think the most positive and exciting thing for staff and the board is that we are now completely in place and able to move forward with all the planning that did take place last year,” said Pierce. “Now it is time for implementation of that planning.” Campbell said Penticton Tourism is well positioned to promote the area in 2013. “That said, the changes we have gone through over the past year, in the long run, are going to be incredibly positive for Penticton, and engaging a really collaborative tourism community where all stakeholders are pulling in the same direction,” said Campbell. At one point last year, the plan was to have six of the seats on the board reserved for members of the PHA. Halladay said it is now a very representative mix of interests.

a&e Colt Ford ready to take on Canada with Eric Church

A&E Editor: Kristi Patton • Phone: 492-3636 ext. 228 E-mail: kpatton@pentictonwesternnews.com

At first glance, Colt Ford is straight up country. From his Georgia drawl, button-up collared shirts and cowboy hat to debuting his Declaration of Independence album at No. 1 on the Billboard country charts. But, press play and you’ll find a country twang with the wordplay of a hip hop lyricist. “I grew up on all kinds of music. I’m a country boy. My daddy didn’t have indoor plumbing until he was 18 years old and he picked cotton, so all I know is country stuff and hard work. That is how I was raised,” said Ford. His songs are southern sermons in a way and this self-proclaimed “bar room preacher” really does as his song Answer to No One claims. Despite listening to Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard and Elvis Presley, Ford became intrigued with hip hop — Rapper’s Delight by Sugarhill Gang to be exact. But to get there he had to bust out of the box that Nashville tried to hold him in. Ford says he went back to the recording studio. “I spent a lot of time in music trying to be something else or somebody else and I think a lot of artists have tried to do that. You are pushed this way and you think you need to do this because

that is what they want to hear. Really when you break it down the people who have longevity are the people that are original,” said Ford. No doubt about it, original he is. In 2011 he collaborated with the hip hop legend DMC of Run DMC — a country boy with the King of Rock. “It was something on my bucket list. He is the friggin’ King of Rock, he is in the rock and roll hall of fame. When you talk about Run DMC you talk about a group that moved the needle. They changed music,” said Ford. “At the end of the day he and I became good friends. He wears Levi’s, rides

Harley Davidsons and has an F150.” So what kind of influences does a hip hop legend have on a cowboy then? “He told me he was going to get me some boots with shell toes. I thought that would be pretty cool.” While faithful in his country ways, Ford pushes the envelope in his music to spitting rhymes over country guitars. “I have a lot of people thanking me for what I am doing because there is a generation that loves the hip hop stuff but there was nobody talking about what they are doing. There was nobody

talking about hunting, playing in the mud, taking your hat off during the national anthem. I’m talking about country stuff that they can relate to,” said Ford. His collaborations continue on his latest release from his own Average Joes Entertainment records, including a duet with Jason Aldean on Driving Around. “It is the best record I have ever made, it literally gives you every aspect. No one song sounds the same and it is a record that you put on at one and you can play straight through to track 15,” said Ford. That is saying a lot for a guy that already has sold nearly a million albums and has three million downloads. Ford, who is also a former professional golfer, covers the gambit of human emotion in the album going from honky tonk dance songs he collaborated on with Kix Brooks (Brooks & Dunn) for All In, to emotional outpourings like Back. “It is tough to perform that one every night. That is my life laid out there right in front of you,” he said. “It’s hard not to get lost in the emotion of that song when I even talk about it. That is my real family, my wife, my kids in the video. I’m standing over the grave of my best friend growing up and I would give a million bucks if he was still here.”

While over 750,000 got to take in Ford’s performances across the U.S. in 2011, Canada, has only had a single performance from him. That’s why he is excited to join his good friend Eric Church on the crossCanada Blood, Sweat and Beers tour. Ford said not only is he getting a chance to join his friend but also gets to soak in

what he believes is the best album he has ever heard. “I’m excited Eric is finally getting the recognition he deserves. I think Chief is one of the best country records I have ever heard,” says Ford. The friendship and honest-to-goodness, down-home style make the pairing a great onetwo punch for the audi-

Penticton

ence this Friday at the SOEC. “Eric and I are both pretty intense on stage. It is full throttle when I hit the stage, that is just who I am and Eric is like that too. You will be worn flat out when you get done watching Eric and I,” promised Ford. Tickets for the Blood, Sweat and Beers tour are at the SOEC box office.

**** Smart **** Thoughtful **** Mesmerizing ****

Set in East Germany in the 1980s, Barbara is an intelligent drama about an ambitious young doctor who is reassigned from a prestigious position in Berlin to a rural hospital after she applies for an immigration visa. In her new post, Barbara resentfully isolates herself from her colleagues and continues to plan for her defection. However, her devotion to her profession and her concern for a pregnant, young patient soon draws the attention of the chief physician, Andre, and the two begin to closely bond. Subtle and compelling, this incisive character study delicately weaves attraction and distrust into a profoundly personal and socially complex fabric.

Healthy Living Fair set for March

WE ARE OPEN MONDAY AT 4:00PM TUESDAY TO SUNDAY AT 11:00AM

Western News Staff

The Okanagan Similkameen Healthy Living Society and the Healthy Living Coalition will be hosting the annual Healthy Living Fair on March 2. Penticton Mayor Dan Ashton is already challenging other politicians, businesses and community members in the Okanagan Similkameen to make a commitment to live a healthier lifestyle by signing up to be a member of the society and receiving a Challenge Certificate. During the week leading up to the Healthy Living Fair, organizations will be hosting healthy and fun activities, while the fair itself will feature demonstrations, speakers, entertainment, kids’ activities, health assessment stations and 40 information booths. The health assessment stations will be filled by health professionals to take your blood pressure, and discuss on a one-to-one basis stress, eating healthy, being fit, quitting smoking and setting healthy-living goals. The fair will be free to the public. Preregistration is recommended for the healthy assessment program and can be done at www.healthylivingfair.com or in person on the day of the event.

Potential threat leads to lockdown of school Students at a Penticton elementary school stuck around longer than expected last Thursday after the facility was locked down on the advice of police. About one minute before the final bell, staff at Uplands Elementary was advised to lock down the school as police hunted nearby for a man with a knife who was thought to be a threat to himself, explained Wendy Hyer, superintendent of the Okanagan Skaha School District. “There wasn’t any threat to the school, it was just a precaution,” Hyer said. “It wasn’t like somebody phoned and was coming to get a kid or was coming to hurt someone in the building. It was just a precaution to keep a person in the area out of the building.” The lockdown ended about 30 minutes later when police gave the goahead, and the superintendent said the security procedure went as well as could be expected. “We practise lockdowns all the time, so by all accounts the principal said things went smoothly.”

What the school hadn’t practised, however, was doing a lockdown so close to the end of the day when parents who were waiting to pick up their children had to be included as well. “That was a different dimension,” Hyer said, adding some par-

ents have sent notes to school staff to compliment their coolness under pressure. Penticton RCMP spokesman Sgt. Rick Dellebuur said the man who generated the complaint has mental health issues and left the area in a truck he stole from Upper Bench Road.

While the position has similar duties to the work she has done since she was hired by Penticton in 2010, she will be taking on more responsibilities, with Duncan’s bylaw enforcement department reporting to her as well. The job also comes with a higher salary, though Burley said that is only one of her reasons for moving on.

“I am originally from the Island, my parents live there and my daughter is in Nanaimo,” said Burley. “It was a difficult decision. I always wanted to get back to the Island, because my parents are aging and my daughter is close by, so it seems to be a good fit.” Burley’s final day with the city will be Feb. 22, and she starts her new position on March 4. She said Mayor Dan Ashton and city manager Annette Antoniak were understanding about her choice to accept the new position. “Karen has done a great job here, I don‘t blame her wanting to be closer to her parents and her daughter,” said Antoniak. “They don‘t come up very often, those types of opportunities, so you have to take them where you can.”

The search for Burley’s replacement began with Gillian Kenny, the city’s manager of human resources, posting the position on Civic Info B.C. and other job sites. The posting doesn’t list a prospective salary, only stating that it will be competitive. It does, however, have a long list of responsibilities for the successful candidate, along with a series of qualifications, including a minimum of eight years experience. Antoniak said they hope to have a candidate selected quickly. Because this is an officer position in the staff hierarchy, Antoniak said the mayor will be involved in the selection process, though the initial review of applications will be conducted by herself, Kenny and chief financial officer Doug Leahy.

school district system under scrutiny B.C.’s auditor general is having a look at two areas of the Okanagan Skaha School District’s operations, including its flagship information-technology (IT) system. School trustees were told at a board meeting this month that the auditor general had informed the district it would be looking at IT systems in place at public-sector organizations across B.C. The school district’s system is among the most advanced in the province and provides phone and data service to all of its facilities plus other community users in Penticton and Summerland. Ron Shongrunden, the district’s secretary-treasurer, told trustees the state-of-the-art system is “prob-

ably less exposed” than those in place elsewhere. He added that he thinks the audit will focus on the security of information stored on the system. The final audit report on IT systems is due to be tabled at the provincial legislature and released to the public in the summer. Shongrunden also reported that his district is one of 51 across B.C. that will receive the lowest level of scrutiny from the auditor general during its review of districts’ finances in the three years ahead. Nine other districts have been flagged for progressively higher levels of oversight based on risk factors such as a change of leadership or financial position.

Penticton to host 2016 B.C. Winter Games Emanuel Sequeira Western News Staff

In February 2016, the province’s best athletes look to shine in Penticton. The B.C. Winter Games are returning to the location that kicked off what has become a jumping-off point for elite athletes since the summer of 1978. Since then, Penticton hosted the winter games in 1990 and the summer games five years later. Gymnasts from Fitkidz Gymnastics Club kicked off the announcement Friday with moves that caught the attention of those in attendance at the Penticton Trade and Convention Centre. Joining them were members of Taneda Dojo and Penticton Judo Club putting on presentations to add an athletic element. B.C. Sport Minister Bill Bennett told the crowd that the B.C. Games are hard to get. “To be a host you have to have a very strong application,” he said. “There are many other communities that would like to host these games. Of course, the volunteers are the ones who drive the application and ensure the success.” Retired Olympian Kristi Richards was also on hand for the announcement. She competed in the winter games in 1995 when it was hosted by Comox Valley. “It was absolutely amazing,” said Richards. “All of you kids who are aspiring to go to B.C. Games, or to Canada Games or the Olympics, I tell you it’s something so, so magical. When I walked into that gymnasium with all the festivities and the stage and the dancing, and the

singing and everything, the whole opening games celebration was so unbelievably powerful for me as a kid. That was the spark. That was the thing that lifted me to new heights. I knew that I wanted to have that feeling again and again.” Richards, an alumni of the Apex Freestyle Club, said that experience motivated her to eventually want to compete in the Olympics. She said the B.C. Games are a springboard for a young child. “To be able to have this here, in Penticton, once again, it’s going to be so great for the whole community,” she continued. During his speech, Bennett mentioned that the London Olympics had 40 B.C. athletes who once competed in the B.C. Games. Having the B.C. Games returning to Penticton is phenomenal news, said Mayor Dan Ashton. “Our city and region lives and breathes sports,” he said. “Our city is home to incredible, top-notch talent.” Over 2,100 athletes, coaches, and officials will participate in approximately 18 sports, Feb. 25 to 28, 2016, according to a release issued by B.C. Games. The Games will be organized and staged by a community board of directors and 2,000 volunteers. Three other communities were announced as hosts of future B.C. Games in separate events Friday. The 2016 B.C. Summer Games will be held in Abbotsford with the 2018 Emanuel SequeiraWestern News B.C.

Rivalry between the Vees and Warriors heating up Emanuel Sequeira Western News Staff

Penticton Vees coach-GM Fred Harbinson said his club has a rivalry with every team in the BCHL. “Nobody likes to see us win,” said Harbinson. “We’ve had a habit of winning a lot of hockey games in the last few years.” Things have boiled over with the West Kelowna Warriors, however. The Warriors blog posted on Dec. 30 after the Vees’ 4-2 win in West Kelowna that “the game wasn’t the most gentlemanly contest you’ll ever see, but that’s not always a bad thing. Rather, it’s a product of two teams who don’t like each other wrapping up 120 minutes of rancorous warfare.” Once the buzzer went on Saturday’s tilt, with the Vees winning 2-1 at the South Okanagan Events Centre, the Warriors engaged the Vees in extra curricular activities that lasted about five minutes. For video of this go to, www.pentictonwesternnews.com and skip to the 5:23 mark. Harbinson didn’t initially

have thoughts on the melee. “There’s probably frustration built on their side,” said Harbinson. While the players exchanged pleasantries, Harbinson and Warriors coach-GM Rylan Ferster had their own exchange. At one point both left their benches towards the hallway then returned. When Ferster was asked what was said between he and Harbinson, he said with a smile, “It was just chatting, just chatting.” Then asked if they met in the hall, he didn’t confirm or deny, once again saying with a smile, “We were just chatting.” One of the intended targets on the Vees was Jedd Soleway, who received extra attention from Seb Lloyd and Braxton Bilous, who threw some punches. When the chaos was cleared, Soleway left the ice with blood on his face. “We’ve had a few tough games with West Kelowna previously this season,” said Soleway, who had some scratches on his nose. “It seemed like it just kind of hit that point where they kind of blew up. I know a bunch of guys out there didn’t want to

PARKWAY ELEMENTARY SCHOOL was represented well by 149 people, including Jordan Picheniuk, wearing the eagle head, who attended Friday’s game against the Vernon Vipers. The school’s attendance was part of a fundraiser with the Vees that will support school field trips. The Vees also rewarded the group by defeating the Vipers 3-1.

take it too far, didn’t want to get suspensions. We definitely held our own and stuck up for each

other. Nothing wrong with that at the end of a hard game.” Harbinson said he’s proud of

the way his players handled the situation, clearly trying to avoid dropping the gloves. Only one

fight was recorded on the game sheet between the Vees’ Michael Rebry and Shawn Hochhausen. “Some people might want to say that we were soft and didn’t fight back,” said Harbinson, adding that they need to follow the rules. “Anybody that says differently, most cases, were tough guys in their own brains. When they go to sleep at night, they were tough guys back in the old days. The ones that were really tough, don’t have to say much. I thought our guys showed a lot of toughness and character.” Harbinson added that he didn’t feel it was an overly vicious hockey game. “More importantly, we have won six in a row and are playing good hockey,” said Harbinson. While the Vees won both games last weekend, which included a 3-1 victory against the Vernon Vipers, the team lost the services of Ryan Gropp after he crashed hard into the boards. He didn’t play against the Warriors and it’s unknown when he will return. Travis Blanleil is expected to play this weekend against Coquitlam. Robert Mann is also expected to return soon.

Cody DePourcq brimming with confidence Emanuel Sequeira Western News Staff

Penticton Vees forward Cody DePourcq laughed, but agreed to the suggestion he’s like a Timex watch — takes a licking and keeps on ticking. During a 2-1 win against the West Kelowna Warriors at the South Okanagan Events Centre Saturday, the Penticton minor hockey product was hit hard on a few occasions, yet always got back up. “That happens every game,” said DePourcq, smiling. “That’s nothing new to me.” Listed on the BCHL website as being fivefoot-six and 150-pounds, DePourcq had an impressive game scoring twice. His first came as he barreled down the left side and snapped a shot above Warriors goalie Tyler Briggs’ shoulder. His second goal, he benefitted from the hard work of captain Troy Stecher. “Stecher did a great job intercepting that pass in the

defensive zone and then skating it up the ice,” said DePourcq. “I was yelling for it and he threw it out front. Luckily it bounced off the post and I was wide open in front of the net and I was able to put it in.” Bound for Denver University in 2014-15, DePourcq has five goals in the last four games.

“He has strung together some great games,” said teammate Jedd Soleway. “Guy works as hard as anybody I have seen before. A guy that size, you would never think in a million years that he would be playing at this level, let alone scoring lots of goals and it’s fun to see. Definitely makes a guy

like me wonder if I work that hard or move my feet that much. It’s impressive and I like what he does.” Vees coach-GM Fred Harbinson said his young pivot has been outstanding. He is being rewarded for the hard work he constantly puts in. “It’s fun to see him do that,” said Harbinson.

“Especially at home, the people love him here. Some real nice goals too. Cody is a heart and soul kid. You love to see those type of kids get rewarded.” DePourcq said there is no difference in his play other than confidence. Find full story at www.pentictonwesternnews.com.

Lakers overcome roster shortfall with two wins Emanuel Sequeira Western News Staff

The Pen High Lakers senior boys basketball team have made their coach proud. With just eight players, the Lakers managed to win two of three games on the road in as many nights. Kyle Gratton scored 17, while Jordan Farmer collected 13 points in a 55-45 win over the Salmon Arm Gold on Jan. 25. The next day, the Lakers lost to the NorKam Saints 59-50. Sunny Jhaj scored 23. During a 65-62 win against the South Kamloops Titans, Jhaj scored 23, while Gratton had 22. Findlay said it was nice to see Jhaj score. “He’s definitely working hard. When his outside shot is on, it brings something to the team we really need,” said Lakers coach Brad Findlay, adding that Gratton was also key. “It takes more than the guys putting the ball in the bucket to win. Every one of them stepped up.” Findlay said it was difficult for his players in the circumstances they faced. “To win the last game going into South Kamloops was a pretty tough task,” he said. “To win it at the buzzer basically, was pretty impressive.” Findlay said the performance during the weekend showed their level of work ethic and their heart. “Things you can’t necessarily coach,” said Findlay. “To go and battle and play that hard with no substitutions, it’s a tough task. That was a heck of a weekend for them.” The Lakers, second in the league at 4-2, have also defeated the Mt. Boucherie Bears 45-34 and the Rutland Voodoos 66-63. They are on a break right now with exams taking place. With the season half over, Findlay hasn’t been able to put his full team on the court. Illness and injury have prevented that.

Game Action Photo captures tournament Emanuel Sequeira Western News Staff

A 6-3 victory against the Langley Eagles helped the Penticton Game Action Photo peewee recreation hockey team clinch their own tournament Sunday at the South Okanagan Events Centre. Game Action Photo, along Penticton Peerless/ McCoy and the Firefighting Vees, hosted the event. Game Action Photo coach Shea Sanche said winning the tournament was his team’s goal. He said they played excellent while accomplishing that. “A real good, strong forecheck and they created a lot of turnovers and scored a lot of goals that way,” said Sanche. Penticton played the Eagles in their first game and won 5-3, with the fifth goal scored in an empty net. Game Action Photo then routed Chilliwack 8-2 and Trail 9-3. They defeated Semiahmoo 7-3 in the semifinal. To get those results, Sanche said his players

Wine and Dine hits the Okanagan Kristi Patton Western News Staff

The 11th annual Wine and Dine program is running in the Okanagan until Feb. 3. The British Columbia Restaurant and Food Services Association in partnership with the B.C. Wine Institute has had overwhelming response from participating restaurants that are offering great value menus paired with B.C. VQA wines. Over 50 restaurants throughout the Okanagan region are offering a three-course fixed price dinner for $15, $25 or $35 (excluding tax, tip and beverages) to showcase local chefs and the famous wines around the region. Wine and Dine Okanagan is an excellent opportunity to sample the very best that the region has to offer. Plus, customers can enter to win the grand prize of a case of wine just by participating in Wine and Dine 2013. Ballots are available at each location. Participating restaurants in the BCRFA Wine and Dine program in Penticton include Black Iron Grill and Steakhouse, Bufflehead

Pasta and Tapas Room, Hooded Merganser, Isshin Sushi Bar and Asian Dining, Theo’s Restaurant and Villa Rose Ristorante. In Summerland, Zias Stonehouse Restaurant is participating in Wine and Dine and in Osoyoos Mica Restaurant and Watermark Wine Bar. “The reason we keep participating is that it is a chance for customers to try dishes that normally aren’t on the menu and at a great value as well,” said Nikos Theodosakis, owner of Theo’s Restaurant. While Theo’s has been in Penticton for about 36 years, Theodosakis said the program gives people another reason to visit them as well as those who are new to the area. “It is so perfect to have it January because it gets people out of the house. It has been a great success,” said Theodosakis. “It is something that many restaurants are offering up and down the valley, which is wonderful to have a group of restaurants offering it simultaneously.” Menus for each of the participating restaurants can be viewed ahead of time on the

BCRFA website at www.OkWineAndDine.ca. The province has recently proclaimed Feb. 11 to 17 Restaurant Week in B.C. The week includes the newly appointed statutory holiday Family Day (Feb. 11). “Encouraging families to get out together and enjoy the diverse offerings of our industry helps to strengthen community ties and the local economy,” said B.C. Restaurant and Food Services Association president Ian Tostenson. The restaurant industry plays a vital role in B.C.’s economy, employing more than 170,000 people in B.C. and generating more than $10 billion in annual sales. “Restaurant Week is a great way to celebrate B.C.’s diverse restaurant industry and the many people who work in it. This industry is made up of passionate and creative entrepreneurs, and during Family Day we encourage everyone to get together with their loved ones and support the many people who own and operate restaurant and food establishments in B.C.,” said Minister of State for Small Business Naomi Yamamoto.
