Meeting attracts hundreds calling for expansion of Penticton hospital Joe Fries

Western News Staff

After drawing about 800 people to a town hall meeting on Wednesday, doctors pushing for a $300-million hospital expansion in Penticton are now waiting to see if the B.C. government responds with cash. The meeting was organized by the Penticton Medical Society in a bid to rally public support for the project, which would ease doctors’ concerns about the overcrowded, outdated facility in which they work. Dr. David Paisley, who heads the society of 120 physicians, said afterwards he was encouraged by the size of the crowd at the Penticton Trade and Convention Centre. “This was much better than we anticipated,” he said. “We were really happy with the turnout.” Doctors hope public pressure will persuade the B.C. government to include funding for the hospital in the budget it unveils Feb. 19. The regional hospital district and medical foundation have already pledged a total of $140 million for the project, leaving $160 million for senior governments to cover. Paisley said his group is optimistic, but ready for anything. “If we’re not in the budget, we might be getting up and making more noise objecting to the fact that we’re not included,” he said. “We’re not going to stop.” He added that doctors will not be satisfied with anything but a full funding commitment from government.

A MODEL showing an expanded Penticton Regional Hospital drew plenty of looks Wednesday during a town hall meeting hosted by local doctors trying to drum up public support for a $300-million expansion.

“I hope that they do not shortchange us and just approve a small part of the project because that’s a stalemate,” Paisley said. Wednesday’s two-hour meeting began with doctors going over the components of the expansion, the centre-piece of which is a new, fourstorey ambulatory care tower. Dr. Brad Raison told the crowd the last major expansion at Penticton Regional Hospital was in 1989 and included work on the emergency room and intensive care unit, but cost cuts meant the project was scaled back and “outdated from the day it started.”

The tower, he continued, would address the space crunch and improve efficiencies by concentrating diagnostics and outpatient services in the new building, which would also help attract specialists trained to use technology for which there is simply no room at PRH. Raison, an ER doctor and the hospital’s chief of staff, said the facility, which opened in 1951, punches above its weight on all performance measures, which has hurt the case for the new tower despite its place at the top of Interior Health’s capital wish list.

Governments “do not reward success,” he said. “They reward failure.” Dr. Sarah Broder explained how most of her patients have to walk about a kilometre through the hospital to have a routine set of tests done. “For them, this is like the bloody Ironman,” she said. The respirologist noted the current proposed expansion is the third version she’s worked on in a decade, and staff is now running out of “Band-Aid solutions” to the space shortage. “There’s only so many times a place can be renovated before you

run into troubles, and right now, we can’t renovate anymore.” The doctors also answered audience questions, and among those who spoke up was Penticton woman Noreen Conway, who asked how she could best channel her desire to become an activist for the project. She said afterwards she was “really impressed” with the doctors’ presentation and left with a firmer grasp of the need for the tower. “I’m 53. I’m somebody who will be using the facility in the future and I hope it’s going to continue to offer great service and state-of-the-art technology of the day,” Conway said. She plans to create a Facebook page to help rally younger people to the cause and continue to support doctors any way she can. “We just need to get loud and proud about what we want, what we need and what we deserve,” Conway said. To bolster the medical association’s efforts to win funding for the tower, the City of Penticton has also puts its economic development officer to work on the case. Colleen Pennington told the meeting the project would represent “a substantial boost to our economy that will help us through some challenging years.” She said Thursday the event generated signatures on 330 form letters, which have been sent to the B.C. government. Letters are still available at City Hall or can be downloaded off the doctors’ website at www. prhtower.ca. Penticton MLA Bill Barisoff was not at Wednesday’s meeting and could not be reached for comment Thursday. He’s in Victoria where the legislature is in the midst of a 19-day sitting.

Project promises the reward of a lifetime Steve Kidd Western News Staff

Penticton will only be getting two defibrillators rather than the four they had hoped for through a funding program, but they are hoping a local man’s fundraising project will help supply many more. A partnership between the provincial government and the Heart and Stroke Foundation will provide $2 million to increase public access to automated

external defibrillators (AEDs), helping to save the lives of victims of sudden cardiac arrest. An AED is a safe, portable device anyone can use to deliver an electric shock to restart a heart in sudden cardiac arrest. The AED reads the heart rhythm and only delivers a shock if needed. “There were a lot more applications that went in than devices were handed out,” said Chuck Loewen, Penticton’s general manager

for facilities and recreation services. “I think Vancouver is only getting 16 themselves.” When they arrive, the two new defibrillators will be installed in two facilities that get a high volume of traffic throughout the year: Cleland Theatre and the library/museum complex. Loewen had hoped to also be able to place AEDs at City Hall and the public works yards. But the city is also working with the Elevator Race and Elevate for

AEDs, a fundraising program spearheaded by Penticton sports physiotherapist Grant Gichard, who himself survived an SCA three years ago. Sudden cardiac arrest is when the heart suddenly and unexpectedly stops beating, stopping blood from flowing to the brain or other vital organs. Without immediate help, a victim of sudden cardiac arrest will suffer brain damage within three minutes. After 12 minutes, survival is unlikely.

“Each year, our paramedics and dispatchers provide assistance for hundreds of cardiac arrest patients,” said Les Fisher, chief operating officer for B.C. Ambulance Service. “We know first-hand the positive impact an AED can have for a patient. Simply put, they save lives.” Gichard’s answer is to have as many AED installed around the city as possible, including the ball fields at Lions Park, where he had his

SCA while pitching a baseball game. Through Elevate for AEDs, individuals or teams entered into the Elevator Race can collect pledges that will contribute towards purchasing an AED for installation at locations designated as high-traffic, high-risk areas. That list includes secondary schools, fitness clubs, shopping malls and sports areas like Lions Park. Gichard and his cardiologist, Dr. David Cleveland, will be a two-man team to fundraise for the installation of an outdoor AED at the ball fields. “We are just encouraging people to gather a team together and sign up,” said Gichard, adding that participants don’t need to be an Ironman-level athlete to join the relay race. “Reasonably fit people should be able to complete one of the legs,” he said. “They are about 40 minutes long. It is designed to be fairly accessible to most people.” While there are several AEDs in public buildings throughout the city, Loewen agrees with the goal of installing more. He’d like to see them in all public buildings. “We are really pleased to work with those folks and get them (AEDs) to where they are needed,” he said. Locations include Memorial and McLaren arenas, the South Okanagan Events Centre and two at the community Penticton

centre: one in the lifeguards’ area and a publicly accessible one on the lower floor. Loewen hopes the Elevate for AEDs project will help make more AEDs available, but is also considering including them as an item in next year’s city budget. “The costs are around $1,600 apiece, which is a great investment for saving a life down the road,” said Loewen. The partnership between the province and B.C. Heart and Stroke includes the B.C. Ambulance Service, which will support the venues receiving an AED by providing orientation for staff on how to correctly use and maintain the devices. The ambulance service will also compile a registry linked to the dispatch information system, which will map all of the locations in the province where AEDs have been installed. When a bystander calls 9-1-1 for an ambulance, the dispatcher will know if an AED is available at the location, and will assist the bystander to use the AED on the cardiac arrest patient. The registry is expected to be active by the end of this month. The Elevator Race takes place on March 23. More information about signing up a team to fundraise for an AED is available online at www. elevateforaeds.com.

Queen Caroline Mathilde arrives from Britain to find the rumours of her betrothed are true. The king is spoiled, self-indulgent and clueless; a puppet of the wealthy court aristocrats. She is, however, soon captivated by the king’s physician Dr. Johann Struensee, a strong proponent of the principles of Enlightenment. A political, intellectual and physical match, their affair is fuelled as much by reformist ideals as it is by sexual passion and so engrossed, the lovers fail to notice the conspiracies taking shape around them.

The look in the large brown eyes of the horse she couldn’t save still haunt Gena Sandli. But if anything, the animal’s “untimely death” has made the founder of Outbackjacks Horse Rescue Centre even more determined to help others. The particular case involved a horse Sandli eventually named the Painted Lady because of her unique markings and gentle nature. She first learned of the problem when a woman living on the outskirts of Keremeos called to report a neighbour’s horse appeared to be in very bad shape and asked what she should do. Shortly afterwards Sandli received some pictures of the animal and was shocked to see its condition. “The mane and forelocks were just matted so badly it was tearing at the skin, she was drastically underweight, it was just an awful sight,” said Sandli. “No animal deserves to be in that sort of pain.” She attempted to contact the owner by telephone, however, the number was not in service, so she called the local RCMP and an officer agreed to go with her to the residence. The owner of the horse declined all offers of assistance, including food and medication, and the pair had no choice but to leave. “As we walked away I turned around and I could see her whole body sagged, like, ‘oh my God, you’re leaving me’ and I swear, even from a distance, it looked like she was crying. “It just crushed me and we had to walk a kilometre out of there in the snow. It was just one of those terrible things.” Shortly afterwards an officer from the SPCA investigated the matter and ordered the horse be

put down, even though Sandli believes the mare may still have had a chance to recover. It was at that point she decided to begin a petition to the government to give organizations like hers authority to do something to help before it is too late. “After that case I just said, ‘I can’t do this anymore,’” she said. “Every time this happens, it just takes a chunk of me away and this one crushed our hearts. “I think part of the problem is the SPCA is just so understaffed and these things just take so long to process, we need to be able to move quicker.” Sandli added she is aware of six other horses that died last year because action was not taken soon enough to help them. “By signing the petition you are giving the rescuers an opportunity that is far overdue,” she said. “Going to call after call and having to walk away

from the animal in need because we cannot get a surrender is not tolerable anymore. “Most of these animals are in need right at that moment and most calls come in long before help ever gets to them.” At her Princeton ranch she is currently looking after nearly a dozen horses, some of which were in need of care but were released by their owners who were unable to provide the necessities of life. Where possible she tries to rehabilitate the animals and find caring homes for them, although there is one horse she rescued from an Okanagan Falls boarding stable she expects will be with her for the rest of its life. “When this horse first came here she hated humans and wanted nothing to do with anybody,” recalled Sandli. “She just laid down and wanted to die, but I sat on the ground for three days and held her head in

my lap and I think from that I earned some respect from her.” As a way to raise money for the work, Sandli started a second-hand store in her home community several years ago and another one in Keremeos this past year. She prefers this method rather than begging the public for money. “We believe in working for what we believe in,” said Sandli. “It’s also why we don’t have a donate button on our website, because if you ask for it, there are many people out there who will give you their very last dime.” Outbackjacks is an agent of the Horse Protection Agency of B.C. and will gladly accept feed, horse medical supplies, tack and all household items at its two locations.

Slater aims to find source of leaks Boundary-Similkameen MLA John Slater has found himself in the centre of a political whirlwind once again, alleging that his personal communications have been leaked. But rather than pursue a full investigation into the alleged leak, Slater is now saying he would rather let the controversy die, though he does plan to approach Speaker of the House Bill Barisoff about an internal investigation. “I want this thing to go away,” said Slater. “I don’t want to go out in the public with this thing, I don’t want to hire a special prosecutor or involve the RCMP or anything like that, because they are just going to dig, dig, dig.” Central to the issue, according to Slater, is a phone conversation with Premier Christy Clark.

“I talked to the premier on Tuesday and she wants me back in caucus, make sure we are all united and voting to pass the budget,” said Slater, who resigned from the Liberal caucus on Jan. 14 to sit as John Slater an independent after the party refused to endorse his candidacy for the May provincial election. Slater was reluctant to accept the offer at the time and has since said he will not be rejoining the Liberals. His credibility would be jeopardized he said, if he went back to “helping the people that have betrayed me and my local supporters.” But within two hours of the conversation, blogger Alex Tsakumis had posted information about it, adding that the Liberals

had ordered copies of Slater’s government text, phone and email records. “It certainly wasn’t from me and it wasn’t anyone that overheard me. I was in my apartment, not even in my office,” said Slater. “My thoughts are that there is leakage in our communication systems. The information that is out there is private information.” Tsakumis said the source of his information was much more prosaic, coming from a contact who overheard a public conversation between Slater and his administrative assistant. However, the tip about Slater’s communication records did come from an inside source. “I heard that from a government source in Victoria, who was rightly appalled. Slater is not running, so who cares. Why would these guys be doing it?” asks Tsakumis, who is of the opinion that someone in the party wanted them to use as leverage.

Home where the heart is for Habitat project Western News Staff

Life is about to change for the latest Penticton family to receive a handup from Habitat for Hu-

manity. The non-profit group threw open the doors Saturday to its latest build, a 900-square-foot home on Huth Avenue.

Habitat for Humanity selects families in need of a break then helps them build a home, which comes with a no-interest mortgage. Each build is

supported by the donations of supplies and volunteers, plus 500 hours of sweat equity from the chosen family. The Huth Avenue

home will soon be occupied by John Draus and April Turford, both 23, plus their two-year-old son Nathan and one-yearold daughter Chloe. Draus, a carpenter, said the build was fun, but taxing. “I’ve been pulling double shifts after work and weekends for quite awhile now, so I’m just a little tired,” he said Saturday after a brief ceremony at the home to bless the space and acknowledge everyone who helped with the build. Besides having a modern, safe home for their kids, Draus said he and Turford are also looking forward to putting their money to work for them. “It’s going to be nice to have our own house and mainly a mortgage, so we’re paying into something instead of just rent.” But despite the family being ready to move in, the house isn’t quite ready for them since an occupancy permit is still needed from the city. Lynn Popoff, president of the South Okanagan chapter of Habitat for Humanity, said the final inspection is expected by the end of the month, but plans had already been made for Saturday’s dedication so the group jumped the gun a bit. “There are a few things that we are waiting until spring to do,” she added. “One is the cement front step; the cement companies want it to be warmer before we do it. And also there is some fencing that needs to be done and we

are waiting for the springtime to do that.” Just a few weeks ago, Popoff said, members of the Habitat board considered stopping work on the house until sufficient funds were raised to complete the build. Then at noon the same day, the board was notified by the executor of the estate of the late Maureen Sewell that she had chosen to include the chapter as one of the beneficiaries in her will. That allowed Habitat to finish the project and schedule the dedication. About 100 volunteers and local business donated to the project, in addition to fundraising efforts by the Habitat board. The house was designed by architect Cal Meiklejohn to fit an oddly shaped, trian-

gular lot. “It’s a very attractive house. It fits the lot; Cal did a really good job of designing it. It just settled right into its space,” said Popoff. This is the third project so far for Habitat for Humanity South Okanagan, and the group has already started casting about for its next build. “We have been talking with the city. There is some land that could be made available,” said Popoff. “And it is suitable for a multiplex and that is what we have to do next, because the cost of land is so high in this valley that single-family homes, even with an interest-free mortgage, are beyond what many people can pay.”

Pay Yourself First Are you falling behind on your Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP) or other financial goals? The solution to the problem may be simpler than you think. It’s possible to increase savings and investments just by ensuring that you set aside money before it’s used for other purposes. This technique of “paying yourself first,” is a simple and painless way to boost your savings. Paying yourself first means committing a portion of your pay cheque to savings before you meet other financial obligations. This strategy works best when you use a preauthorized contribution (PAC) plan that automatically transfers money from your bank account to savings or investments. Preauthorized investment plans can be used for RRSPs, TFSAs and non-registered investments. Money is automatically transferred into stocks, mutual funds or other investments. PAC plans let you transfer funds at a frequency you choose-typically weekly, bi-weekly or monthly. If you can invest regularly

through workplace payroll deductions into a group RRSP or company stock purchase plan - do it - as many companies match or contribute to your group RRSP with you. Take advantage of essentially FREE MONEY. You’ll discover that putting money aside regularly is easier than finding large lump sums to invest. There’s another bonus - your money goes to work sooner, increasing your wealth potential. This is particularly important in an RRSP and TFSA, where tax-deferred growth makes it paramount to invest as soon as you can. If you think you don’t have the money to pay yourself first, finding it may be easier than you think. With a little financial repositioning you can strike a happy balance between today’s

needs and tomorrow’s goals. First, figure out how much you can afford to regularly save and invest. The best way to do that is through a budget that lists your monthly income and expenses using personal finance software, a spreadsheet or just a pen and paper. By subtracting your expenses from your income, you’ll see how much you have left over for savings. Don’t stop there. Take a second look to find out where can you cut down on expenses and save more? Everyone can make changes to free up cash by cutting down on eating out or paying off debt quickly. Once you’ve figured out how to pay yourself first, stick with it. It’s better to pay yourself first by trimming spending a little more to stay on track than skipping payments or abandon your strategy altogether.

PERFECT PAIR Winery makes case to ALC COOKING EVENT Joe Fries Western News Staff

Owners of a winery restaurant in the South Okanagan have cleared the first of many regulatory hurdles standing between them and a fuller drink menu. The rural board of the Regional District of Okanagan-Similkameen voted last week to send Tinhorn Creek Vineyards’ non-farm use application to the Agricultural Land Commission with a request that its restaurant be allowed to serve all kinds of B.C.-made booze, not just wine. “What we’re looking for really is our chance to be able to go the ALC and give them our case,” Tinhorn Creek CEO Sandra Oldfield told the board prior to its vote. She said she wants her restaurant, Miradoro, to be treated like other restaurants that are not within the Agricultural Land Reserve

and can obtain a food-primary liquor licence to serve whatever they want. Most wineries within the ALR hold a special winery-lounge liquor licence that allows owners to serve only B.C. wines. Tinhorn Creek, however, wants to add B.C. beers and spirits to its roster. To get the more permissive licence, the winery has to apply to the ALC for a non-farm use exemption, which goes to local government first for comment. The exemption must be granted by the ALC before the B.C. Liquor Control and Licensing Branch will look at the actual licence application. An RDOS staff report noted the board would also have to amend its own bylaws to allow a commercial restaurant to operate in an agriculture zone. Oldfield told the RDOS board she doesn’t want her property to be rezoned for commercial use,

which would attract a higher tax rate. The board instead asked that the ALC amend its policy on allowable farm uses to let winery restaurants serve any type of B.C.-made alcohol, which would then remove the need for rezoning George Bush, the RDOS director for Cawston, was the only member of the eight-person rural board to vote against sending Tinhorn’s application on to the ALC. “For one thing, I don’t think you need alcohol to have a restaurant to start with,” Bush said prior to the vote. “The other is that the reason (the winery restaurant) was allowed to be on ALR land was to promote agriculture on it and I think we should stick with that.” Allan Patton, the director for rural Oliver, initially opposed Tinhorn’s application, but agreed to support it as long as the restaurant is serving B.C. products.

MLA - slater concerned with privacy “They were going to see if they could somehow snooker him into voting for the budget,” said Tsakumis. “The government has absolutely no business doing that (ordering copies of his records). I am an independent,” said Slater, adding that he has been talking to the other three independent MLAs. “Are our conversations, emails, texts between the four of us, are they shared with government, are they out there for the people to look at or to hear?” Slater is concerned about private emails made to family and friends on his government Blackberry being made public, but also admitted to concern that an

investigation might bring to light other information alluded to in January by Tsakumis. “That is part of it. Who else am I going to hurt?” said Slater. “If I just let this thing drop and say I am not going back to the Liberal caucus, end of story, let it die, then I have a lot more credibility.” Tsakumis never made his earlier information public and claims to have since destroyed the records. But on Jan. 21, less than a week after his original blog post directed at Slater and NDP candidate Marji Basso, both announced they had decided not to run in the May 2013 provincial election.

EDITORIAL

Throne speech fails to provide specifics

T

he throne speech opening B.C.’s 39th legislature may have been short on substance, but it did make it abundantly clear that the B.C. Liberals see natural gas exports as the source of the province’s future prosperity. The B.C. Conservative party was quick off the mark to label this a “We’re gonna win a lottery” throne speech, while NDP leader Adrian Dix said it’s a sign that the Liberals have given up on other sectors of the economy, like forestry, film, high tech and tourism. Rather than convince the province with reasoned arguments that LNG exports would be safe and profitable despite the vagaries of the volatile fuel market, the throne speech instead held out tantalizing, but unsubstantiated hints about what could be done with all that money. Reducing the provincial debt topped the list, along with improvements to social services, investment in education and infrastructure, and the biggest carrot, the elimination of provincial sales tax. The ideas outlined in the throne speech, of course, only apply if the Liberals are re-elected. An NDP government could overturn the whole concept of B.C. becoming a leading exporter of LNG to the energy hungry Asian markets. But should they? There is substance to the concept of exploiting one of the province’s biggest assets. If not now, when? While, as the NDP suggest, supporting existing economic drivers is a primary goal, expanding the province’s economic base should also be on the agenda. What we need is an intelligent approach to bringing B.C. LNG to the world market. As with thePENTICTON province’s fiWESTERN ve requirements for the Enbridge pipeline, we need a plan to ensure safe production and transport as well as a sound fiscal plan to ensure the province profits, both in terms of taxes and maximizing jobs created in the province. What we don’t need are hints and stock platitudes intended to entice votes, rather than a substantive plan for the province’s future.

opinion

Imperial papacy stays the course It’s the Roman Catholic Church, not the Republican Catholic Church or the People’s Revolutionary Socialist Democratic Catholic Church. Its rigid hierarchy and its centralizing instincts are almost entirely due to the fact that it became the state religion of the Roman Empire over 1,600 years ago. And the pope is still, in essence, the emperor. How Roman are the traditions and instincts of the church that Pope Benedict XVI has led for the past seven years? Well, one of his titles is “pontifex maximus”, usually translated from the Latin as “Supreme Pontiff”. That was the title of the high priest of the old Roman (pagan) state religion under the Republic. When Rome became an empire, the emperors took it over, starting with Augustus. And somewhere in the fifth or sixth century — the timing is not clear — the title was transferred to the Christian bishop of Rome, who had become the head of the new state religion, Christianity. This is not to say that the popes are secretly pagans: they are monotheists to the core. (The answer to the rhetorical question “Is the Pope a Catholic?” is “Yes”.) But they are Roman Catholics, and the religion they lead is still run like an empire.

Gwynne Dyer

Dyer Straits Very occasionally some maverick pope tries to change the model, but the system always wins in the end. Benedict XVI was the emperor of a shrinking domain, for the Catholic Church has been shedding adherents not only in the West, where it is everywhere in steep decline, but also in the Latin American, African and Asian countries where it once held unchallenged sway. While secularism is the enemy that steals the faithful in the West, evangelical forms of Christianity are seducing Catholic believers away in what we used to call the Third World. There are many who blame this hemorrhage on the outgoing pope (the first time anybody has ever used that phrase about

a pope, for they normally die in office, like the emperors did). Benedict was chosen by his colleagues because they believed that he would fight off fundamental change, and he performed his duty well. His resignation for health reasons is an innovation, but it is the first that he has been guilty of. He held the line on abortion (a sin in almost all circumstances), homosexuality (likewise, unless the person remains entirely celibate), married or female priests (definitely not), re-marriage after divorce (ditto), and contraception (under no circumstances, though he later said that HIV-positive prostitutes might be justified in asking their clients to use condoms). What the Catholic Church is really fighting is modernization, which it sees as moral decline. Perhaps it is right (though I don’t think so personally), but it is losing the battle. Yet Benedict XVI and the Church hierarchy are condemned to fight this battle until the last ditch, because they believe, probably correctly, that full modernization would make them irrelevant. So there’s no point in going on about how Pope Benedict XVI (or will we go back to calling him Cardinal Ratzinger after the end

of this month?) failed to modernize the Church. He wasn’t hired to do that. The only pope who did try was John XXIII, and he died 50 years ago. Every pope since then (including the charismatic but deeply conservative John Paul II) has seen his task as being to stem the tide of change and restore the old order. The job was largely complete even before Benedict became pope seven years ago. His job has merely been to ensure that there is no backsliding into liberalism, relativism and other modernist errors, and he has achieved that by ensuring that almost the entire College of Cardinals (the men who choose the next pope) are reliably conservative and orthodox. The College had already been stuffed with conservative cardinals by his predecessor, John Paul II, so even there he really didn’t have to do much except steer the same steady course. Not a single one of the cardinals who are seen as “papabili” (men who might be elected as pope) could be described as liberal or reformist. There will be a new pope, but nothing is going to change. The hemorrhage will continue. Gwynne Dyer is an independent journalist whose articles are published in 45 countries.

Safeguards will allow us to embrace progress Like most Canadians, I have concerns about the consequences of a major calamity involving the proposed Enbridge pipeline. However, if adequate safeguards are put in place, then I believe that the project should be embraced, not opposed. This great nation has been built by exploiting our abundant natural resources, be it furs, lumber, minerals, food or water power. One thing all these products needed was efficient transport facilities to sell these products around the world. The resource industries led the way to providing and developing our road, rail and waterway systems that have helped to access this vast country. I see this pipeline as an extension of our transportation infrastructure. Have we let accidents on our exiting transport systems deter us from building more roads, vehicles, power lines, railways or ships? No, nor should they have. Instead we have leaned from experience and have built better and safer systems. From time immemorial every generation has improved what went before. Mankind’s ingenuity knows no bounds. Surely,with

A work in progress

It’s great that the minister of health was sent a copy of the City of Penticton’s November newsletter regarding the Penticton hospital expansion, but if she read the October newsletter she may have reason to pause. The October newsletter reads in part, “Penticton often thinks of itself as a “tourism town,” but ... the top three industries offering employment in Penticton are health care and social assistance (12.5 per cent), manufacturing (10.4 per cent) and construction (nine per cent). Hospitality sector business like food service and drinking establishment are fourth on the list with 7.6 per cent.” I’m all for health care and providing for the disadvantaged, but when health care and social assistance is a city’s leading “industry” something is very wrong. Perhaps the minister of tourism could be sent a copy of the October newsletter. Scott Robinson Penticton

Mayor on the job

So the mayor presented a pleasant package to us taxpayers of a zero increase in taxes but then “borrowed” from the city’s savings and increased taxation on hydro, water, etc. all the while expecting us to swallow it, hook, line and sinker. He also said we’d have 200-plus jobs added to our economy, but failed to forecast how many jobs are being lost due to the addition of these big-box stores (Super Wal-Mart is next). Still glad you have your discount Chinese goods and your roomy, well-lit aisles? Because your taxes are going up.

all the knowledge and technology that is available, a system can be developed that will reduce the risks of a major calamity to acceptable levels. Such a system is necessary if the project is to proceed. The whole length of the pipeline should be monitored, both remotely and physically. From the benefits to be gained from the proposed pipeline it should be that all parties should share the bounty: the company, the customer and the people whose lands and way of life are to be impacted. However, to enjoy the bounty all parties must participate in sharing the risks. Throughout human history a charge has been imposed for a use of a trade route through an owner’s land. That can only be fair and proper. For those who say that their traditional way of life is being threatened, let us be reminded that traditions do not happen spontaneously but are built up over generations. Can our young people be educated, trained and employed to safeguard both the environment and the pipeline? Can the knowledge of the land and waterways that we possess not be utilized

Seeing as I fail to fathom how a person making $10.25 an hour at 28 hours a week can afford a $400,000 house, plus the taxes that go with it, of course. Oh, and that farce of democracy on the waterfront revitalization project? Well, it’s a good thing council listened to our demands, eh? Only a million so far. Let’s see, a couple million more, a dozen more trees ripped out, and we’re at option one, aren’t we? Ah, but it looks up! Thanks to our nice weather, all these older folks have flocked to Penticton, so we can all just get jobs taking advantage... I mean, care of them in our soon-to-be-improved hospital. Ah, Penticton, the place to stay forever, don’t they say that about hell? Monica Hoffman Penticton

Political attacks unfair

As one of many, I am very concerned for those concerned citizens of B.C who insist on sleazy attacks on NDP leader Adrian Dix? Unfortunately for me your sleaze only makes me want the time to rush by so we can rid the province of a liberal pain worse than any toothache. What Adrian Dix and then Premier Glen Clark did or didn’t do is history. If I may I would like to refresh the memory of those concerned with the saga of trying to Nix the Dix. That scrap of paper signed by Adrian Dix in the 1990s along with sundeck building and casino investigation regarding Glen Clark are nothing compared to the shameful DUI incident involving Gordon Campbell, former boss hog of Christy Clark. Campbell is still freeloading from the pub-

to monitor and control the operation? Can our fishermen not be trained as pilots and tug boat operators to help keep our shipping routes safe? All these things are possible and should become part of the project. The customer could play a role by funding part of the cost of the education and training, together with the companies involved. Recognizing that despite all precautions a calamity could occur, part of the proceeds from the sale of the products should go directly to a recovery account. This tariff should not be used for any other purpose. The consultation process that is currently ongoing should continue in some form if and when the project proceeds, open and constructive discussion can help solve many issues. I suggest that we embrace and facilitate progress, do not oppose it out of hand but rather pursue every avenue we can think of so that everyone can benefit from it.

lic purse and we all know whom Glen Clark is employed by, don’t we. Just goes to show the public has no say where to deliver that stuff found in the bull ring. Ted Azyan Osoyoos

Appalled by hospital conditions

I was recently a patient at Penticton Regional Hospital. My care by the staff was excellent. However, as a retired RN, I was appalled by the conditions that they were working in. To say it is overcrowded is an understatement. Even cleanliness in such an old building is a problem. If there was a fire I am sure there would be loss of life in trying to evacuate the many debilitated patients. We desperately need an update and a new hospital in Penticton. Please support our community by letting our government know of our need of an efficient regional hospital. Mrs. S. Boultbee Penticton

Hospital needs attention

I first started working at Penticton Regional Hospital in 1972 and later transferred to Continuing Care at the Health Unit. I am now retired. There are fewer inpatient beds now than when I started. Ambulatory care and day care surgeries have exploded in numbers. Patients are sent home earlier and the community support is asked to do more and more. Facilities looking after complex care residents are asked to do more too and I recently had an elderly relative in two so I know of what I speak. Residents

that used to be admitted to acute care are not being looked after in the facility. In other words, more and more is being expected of a bursting facility and the community. I feel it has reached the tipping pint. Penticton can no longer do more with less. The demographics of Penticton and area further stretch our resources and this will not change. Please allow Interior Health and the planning committee of PRH to fulfill their future needs before a crumbling infrastructure collapses. Gill Holland Penticton

A RoyAl AffAiR features actress Alicia Vikander (Queen Caroline Mathilde) and Mads Mikkelsen (Dr. Johann Struensee) and is part of the Penticton Art Gallery Kitchen Stove film Series showing on feb. 21.

Passionate story in A Royal Affair for Kitchen Stove series Western News Staff

A gripping tale of brave idealists who risk everything in their pursuit of freedom for the people will be the next storyline for the Kitchen Stove Film Series in Penticton. Above all, A Royal Affair is the story of a passionate and forbidden romance that changed an entire nation. A young Queen Caroline Mathilde arrives from Britain to find she is to marry King Christian VII of Denmark. The king is spoiled, self-indulgent and clueless; a puppet of the conniving aristocrats at court. After the king discovers he prefers playing with his dog to marriage, he decides on a grand tour of Europe and sets off under the care of the ruggedly handsome German physician Dr. Johann Struensee. The doctor is a strong proponent of the principles of Enlightenment and easily influences the king. When they return to the court in Copenhagen, he soon finds himself captivated by the vibrant young queen. She the doctor’s political, intellectual and physical match and their affair is fuelled as much by their reformist ideals as it is by their physical passion. So engrossed, they fail to notice the conspiracies taking shape around them. Their secret love starts a revolution. Director/writer Nikolaj Arcel said

BE FO RE MU RR AY GM ...

the film is based on one of the most dramatic events in Danish and European history. “I used to pitch the film to foreign investors, people had a hard time believing the story was true, that these momentous events had actually happened in the late 1700s,” said Arcel in his director’s statement. “In Denmark however, it is taught in school. More than 15 books have been written about it, both factual and fiction, and there has even been an opera and ballet. I feel honoured and extremely lucky to finally bring the full story to the screen.” Arcel is noted for his screenplay writing work including the original Swedish film, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, which was released in 2009. A Royal Affair is nominated for an Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film of the Year and was nominated in the same category for a Golden Globes award.. A Royal Affair is rated 14A and is screening at the Landmark Cinema 7 in Penticton on Feb. 21 at 4 and 7 p.m. Single pre-purchased tickets are available for $13 at the Penticton Art Gallery and The Book Shop. Limited single tickets for $15 may be available at the doors. For more on the film and to watch the trailer visit www.pentictonwesternnews.com.

A new exhibition opens at the Penticton Museum and Archives today, inviting people to take a closer look at their connections to the community and to each other. “It’s really a way for people in Penticton to make connections to each other and using archives and genealogy to find what those connections are,” said curator Peter Ord, describing You are Here: An exploration of lives, memories and archives, which kicks off with a gala opening at 4:30 p.m. today. Ord said the museum wanted to highlight receiving full institutional membership with the Archive Association of B.C., connecting people’s personal history with the local archives.

Karla KozaKevich talks with her father Sam Drossos in the remake of the family business, The Three Gables, at the Penticton Museum and archives. The new exhibit, called You are here, features rooms from several buildings owned by local families over the years.

“It is quite amazing looking at the historical linkages between people

who have no relation you think to each other but really do have some connection whether through work or through play or through marriage in some way,” said Ord, noting that the Cleland, Leir, Smuin, Drossos and McLean families form the nucleus of the exhibition. “If we look at two of the families we are featuring, the Cleland family and the Leir family, the grandfather of Marylin Barnay (Cleland) actually was the priest who married Hugh and Joyce Leir,” said Ord. Leir was the city’s early lumber baron; the family home, Leir House, is now one of the city’s cultural centres. “We focus on Kenny McLean, who was the rodeo star. We find their family has very long connections to First Nations hereditary chiefs. It provides us a great link into pre-European settlement family,” said Ord, noting the link to Adam

Eneas, the current hereditary chief and perhaps to another rodeo star, Chad Eneas. “It’s through those five families that we want to spread tentacles and see what kind of connections we can make,” said Ord, explaining that part of this exhibit will be an interactive gathering of personal histories. The You are Here opening celebration runs from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. Friday, with members of all five featured families speaking. While the exhibit wraps up at the end of June, a companion project, Local Lore, will be running for a full two years. Local Lore puts the archival process into the hands of the community to record their world, past and present, to benefit future generations, collecting knowledge about Penticton’s people, places, nature and things — who we were, what we did and how we did it.

This is more than just dusting off old artefacts or digging out an heirloom from the back of the closet; Local Lore depends on capturing the memories of people and places. Residents and groups will be encouraged to interview individuals in the community whose stories need to be part of the oral history of Penticton, building upon generational legacies. “It’s a way to collect people’s information both on paper, but also electronically. That will be projected and presented in the exhibit. There is a step-by-step guide we will provide those who are interested. We are interested in anybody that has just arrived in Penticton yesterday to anybody whose family has been here for four generations,” said Ord. “That’s part of the exercise. Are there really six degrees of separation between each of us?”

Jennifer Vincent is recorded as part of the preparation of a video blog which are becoming increasingly popular among small business owners for use on the internet. A seminar is scheduled for Saturday at cowork Penticton.

Everything you ever wanted to know about video blogging will be included in a special seminar on Saturday. Video Blogging 101 is the name of a three-hour program at Cowork Penticton being put on by Summerland-based ET2media. According to the video and communications company co-owner Erick Thompson, visual blogs are one of the most effective tools currently used on websites, social media and e-newsletters. “Eighty-five per cent of people who use the Internet watch video,” said Thompson, who along with partner Erin

Trainer worked for a number of years in television and radio on Vancouver Island. “ Most of us have smart phones or webcams and whether you are a real estate agent, winemaker or plumber, now is the time to engage your audience. Participants will take home ideas and skills to create their own blogs right away.” During the interactive seminar, ET2media instructors will show how to create original content, user-friendly camera, lighting and audio techniques and tips for on-camera presentation. “Customers are looking to save time and money, be entertained and build relationships,” said Trainer. “A smart video can accomplish this and help a business

stand out from the competition.” She asks business owners to take a close look at their own companies and determine what makes them unique and show off those qualities in a visual format. The passion they share in helping other small business owners was the reason the pair began ET2media nearly two years ago. Saturday’s program is suitable for people who are new to the use of video or those who already have some experience. For more information or to register email et2media@gmail.com. Cowork Penticton is located at 125 Eckhardt Ave. East.

Having already done some charity work in Africa, Sarah Petreny knows first-hand the rewards that await local high school students who will take up the same challenge later this year. “It’s kind of cliche, but it definitely changed my life and my view of the world,” said Petreny, a 17-year-old Grade 12 student at Penticton Secondary School. “Everyone says that about Africa, but it’s true.” She travelled to Tanzania in 2010 to help build a school at an orphanage in Arusha, about 600 kilometres northwest of Dar es Salaam, the country’s largest city. Two groups of students from three high schools in Penticton and Summerland will travel back there in two groups this spring and summer to build a roof on that school and begin work on a library nearby. They’ll be working under the auspices of Voluntary Abroad, a non-profit that organizes such trips, and the job will be guided by a local foreman. While in Tanzania, the South Okanagan crews will live, eat and work together during their three-week stays.

Featuring: Neil Rawal, Vice-President CI Investments Refreshments will be served For more information or to RSVP, please contact: William (Bill) Bogaardt Bus: 778-476-0461 Cell: 250-770-0461 bill.bogaardt@sunlife.com

SkAhA Ford’S dave Newman presents Penticton Secondary School teacher kersten Grant with a cheque for the proceeds of a fundraiser organized by students who are travelling to Tanzania this spring and summer to perform charity work.

“You see how people live in a another part of the world and everything is so different: how they do things, what they eat, how they learn. It’s so different from what we have here,” Petreny said. Kyle Hooper, 16, is hoping for his own glimpse of that when he joins Petreny and others on the summer trip. “It’s just going to be like something you don’t normally see, because we’re so used to everything being perfect,” said Hooper, a Grade 11 student at Penticton Secondary. “You just kind of (have to) dive in and let it all surround you (and) just have fun with it I guess.” Besides the $5,000 students must pay for their own travel and accommodations, the groups also need to raise $5,000 each for building materials. They’re zeroing in on those totals through fundraisers like a car wash and poinsettia sale, plus a big boost from Ford Canada’s Drive4UR School event, which pulled in $3,100. Kersten Grant, one of the trip organizers, said Skaha Ford “basically bent over backwards to help us out” with that test-drive fundraiser. Grant, a Penticton Secondary teacher, went along on the 2010 trip and said the student volunteers are lowmaintenance. “The kids who do this kind of thing are the creamof-the-crop kids, so you don’t have any issues,” she said. “It’s just a real pleasure as an adult and teacher to be able to work with teenagers who are so willing to commit to such an amazing project,” Grant continued. “The kind (of kids) who are willing to jump when they’re not sure where they’re going to land.” She added that the groups have more fundraisers planned in the months ahead.

An 11-point lead at half time against the South Okanagan Secondary School Hornets provided enough cushion to help the Princess Margaret Mustangs senior girls basketball team clinch the AA South Central Zone. The visiting Hornets made it closer in the second half. The Mustangs narrowly outscored them 19-16 for a 49-35 win. Mustangs coach Dave Killick said their focus was to contain Netu Dhaliwal, who finished with eight points, and Navneet Mann had 15, including a three-point shot that kissed the inside of the rim. The Mustangs wanted to force the other Hornets to beat them. “I think for the most part we did a pretty good job of that,” said Killick. “Oliver played hard.” The Mustangs coach said it was a good win for his players who were aggressive on the ball and forced several turnovers. The Hornets hit the scoreboard first and had a 5-0 lead before the Mustangs clawed back with the help of a three-point shot made by Dana Klamut, who had nine points in the first half and finished with 11. Klamut’s shot gave the Mustangs a 7-5 lead that grew to 11-5 after the first quarter and they never looked back. Hornets coach Kevin Chase said

ABBY WINSTONE of the Princess Margaret Mustangs worked magic in her office (in the paint) against the South Okanagan Secondary School Hornets scoring 10 points to help the Mustangs senior girls basketball team win the AA South Central Zone.

his team had a sluggish start due to nerves until finally coming on in the third quarter. “They weren’t running their offence,” said Chase. “Maggie played a good game. Maggie took one of our guards out of it. They didn’t go after No. 11 (Mann) they went after No. 7 (Dhaliwal) and it disrupted her game plan.” The Hornets, ranked sixth in the valley, still can get into the Valleys by winning a challenge game. “The season isn’t over yet. Our girls always take

the hard way of doing it,” joked Chase. “I don’t know why they don’t like the easy way. I like easy.” It was the third victory of the season against the Hornets for the Mustangs. With the previous matches having been tough, Killick said he didn’t expect anything less on Wednesday night. Among the positives Killick saw was his players pushing the ball inside. The only area he wanted to see more success was in executing layups. “We could have put the game away earlier,”

he said. “We were patient with the ball. We moved it well against their zone.” One of the players who had a strong game was Klamut, who Killick said in the past month has struggled with her shooting. “It was nice to see her bust out of that slump,” he said. “That really spread their zone out a little bit. Created some opportunities.” Abby Winstone finished with 10 points, collecting them all in the paint. The Mustangs

had eight players score. Kari-Grace Pym played over 30 minutes and pulled down nine rebounds, had eight assists and scored seven points while Brooklyn Pichette had 12 rebounds with her four points. Erin Gabriel made a three-pointer in the second quarter while Callan Cooper, Maddie Winter and Rylee McKinlay all had solid games.

Symonds gave Cutjar credit for trying that. “He’s a wily veteran,” added Symonds. “Totally took me by surprise. Thought he had something up his sleeve.” “My goal was to get in his head and try to get a lead on him, but he eventually caught and overtook me,” said Kevin Cutjar, who drew cheers from the crowd from his move.

Centre. Held on Sunday, the event gave triathletes a chance to put their winter training to the test. “It’s always tough to keep training in the winter and I think this is a good measuring stick for all the athletes to see where they are in their training,” Symonds said in a release beforehand. The format had athletes start in the pool with a 15-minute swim. They then had 15 minutes to transition into the SOEC for the bike portion, which was 30-minutes on a bike set up like a spin machine. The bikes had machines hooked up calculating the total distance accumulated. The bike was immediately followed by a 20-minute run around

TSN scanned our great city with footage of the snow-covered hills, while discussing the great wineries in the valley. As rocks slid down the ice, Penticton’s logo was constantly caught by the camera. The South Okanagan Events Centre and The Trade and Convention Centre were the hub of activity for five full days. It’s not surprising that Global Spectrum was the recipient of the Chamber of Commerce Business of the Year award. The staff was phenomenal.

NELSON Doris Evelyn Nelson of Penticton, B.C. passed away peacefully in her home with family by her side on January 31, 2013 at the age of 87. Doris Johnson was born in Buchanan Saskatchewan on April 11, 1925, where she was raised with her 8 siblings: sisters Lorna (Dreveny) of Kelowna and Luella (Larsen) of Penticton, brother Bob of Kelowna, and brothers (deceased) Edgar, Gerald, Russell, Albert and Carl. Doris met Nels Nelson (1923-2008) of Veteran, Alberta at a rural war-time dance and they married in 1945. They moved to Penticton in 1948 after Nels’ military service and a brief time in Vancouver. They had 6 children, Brian (Geraldine Giraud) of Kamloops, Delphine (Stuart Bish) of Penticton, David (Maureen Carey) of Vancouver, Rodney (Jude Johnson) of Burnaby, Barbara (Gary de Jong) of North Vancouver and Dawna (Ben Hieltjes) of New Westminster. Doris will be remembered and greatly missed by all her loved ones including 13 grand children: Michael Flynn (Richmond), Aaron Flynn (Penticton), Hardy Nelson (Vancouver), Britt Nelson (Kamloops), Kari (Brent Reston, New York), Ali Nelson (London, England), Christa Nelson (Burnaby), Daniel and Ryan de Jong (North Vancouver), Benjamin and Hanna Hieltjes (New Westminster), Emma Carter-Bish (Sean Poon, Vancouver) and Chelsea Carter-Bish (Ben Ogle, Calgary) with 1 great grandchild Ethan Flynn (Edmonton) and one on the way with Kari and Brent Reston. After Nels retired from his ownership of ANJ Automotive, Doris and he enjoyed tropical vacations as well as local fishing and camping with family. Summer evenings on their deck overlooking beautiful Okanagan Lake and valley brought great joy to them and visiting family. Among the many things Doris will be remembered for is her family spirit and passion for all that she did. Doris volunteered at The Penticton Soupateria, South Okanagan Women in Need Society, and was very active with Our Redeemer Lutheran Church. Over the years she loved to play golf and badminton, and she was an avid bridge player. Her other hobbies included knitting, sewing, and reading, but her most treasured legacy is her love for cooking, baking and all things food. “Doris’ Cinnamon buns” will be remembered for a very long time! The family are all grateful she kept up the traditional Scandinavian Christmas smorgasbord. Her favourites included lefsa, smor bakelse, pepparkakor, fruit soup, lutefisk, fiskeboller, Swedish meatballs, herring salad and a variety of breads. Many thanks to Dr. Elizabeth Watters, palliative nurses Carrie and Erin and the home care workers for their compassionate and loving care of Doris over this past year.

STRONG

Richard Lawrence We lost an amazing person on Saturday February 9, 2013. Richard Lawrence Strong passed away at the age of 55 after a battle with cancer. This industrious imaginative talent will be sadly missed. Richard is survived by his loving wife Debra, Richard’s son Shane, Richard’s mother Irene, sister Laurie and brother Fred (Jody). Richard is fondly remembered by Laurie’s children Janet and Niall, Debra’s sons Shawn (Akiko and grandson Noah) and Marc. Richard was predeceased by his sister Janet, father Raymond and Laurie’s husband Brendan. Richard was born in Saskatoon in 1957 and attended High School in Burnaby (Alpha), Pen-Hi (Grad ’76) and OK College (JW 1979). Richard was a successful Welding Contractor and Logger and was respected and admired by his peers and friends for his many talents, ingenuity and incredible sense of humor. Richard’s priority was family and his biggest source of pride was his son Shane. Richard thrived in chaos, excelled in an endless variety of disciplines, and was a library of information. Thinking of Richard’s absence leaves us heartbroken. Talk of him and you will soon be smiling, then laughing. Richard, thanks for the good times! In lieu of flowers do something nice for a pirate. A Celebration of the Life of Richard Strong will be held at the Ramada Inn, Penticton, Saturday, March 2, 2013, 2-4pm. Condolences to welderdude@hotmail.com Special thanks to Cora Bussinger (CAT Clinic Nurse) for her care, resource and support. Greatly appreciated donations can be made to: S.O.S. Medical Foundation, Specify: C.A.T. Clinic Penticton.

ROBERT ‘BOB’ WALTER CROUSE It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved husband, father and best friend Robert ‘Bob’ Walter Crouse on February 7, 2013 at the age of 63. Bob passed away peacefully at home with his wife Jocelyn and son Ryley by his side. Bob fought his 2 year battle with cancer courageously never once losing his sense of self and pragmatism. Along with Jocelyn and Ryley, he leaves behind his step-son Joe (Marissa), step-daughter Amanda (Rob), brothers Gary, Michael (Pauline), and Donald, sisters Cathy (Mike) Wiseman and Pamela Downey, five stepgrandchildren – Ashton, Araya, Ty, Reece, and Gracie, numerous nieces and nephews, aunts, uncles, and cousins . Bob was predeceased by his son Ryan (1995), his father Walter (1998) and his mother Rose (2009). Bob first came to the Shuswap over 30 years ago to become the voice of news, sports, and weather for CKXR Radio and the Big R network. He loved what he did, the people he met and worked with, and the many opportunities for outdoor recreation that living in the Shuswap afforded. Bob touched many lives during his time here and he will be forever missed by all those who knew him and loved him. There will be no service at Bob’s request. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to a children’s charity of one’s choice. Cremation is in the care of Bowers Funeral Service & Crematorium. “May God grant you always… A sunbeam to warm you, A moonbeam to charm you, A sheltering angel so nothing can harm you. Laughter to cheer you, Faithful friends near you, And whenever you pray, Heaven to hear you.” -Celtic Prayer-
