Weekend Edition

Growing business By Wade Paterson ST AFF REPORTER

It could have been very easy for Joan Haddow Hohenstein, owner of Canadian Fruitful Tree Company in East Kelowna, to miss the inaugural Meet Your Maker Okanagan event last April. She read about the opportunity in a last-minute e-mail, but nearly declined—the timing was bad and her company was swamped with orders. “I’m so glad I went,” said Haddow Hohenstein. In a matter of hours she landed five deals with five different companies. Doors Haddow Hohenstein had been trying to knock down for months were suddenly opening. “It’s informal, it’s nobody’s territory. Just being able to get these people who are usually hidden in head offices… it erases all those barriers.” This year she is volunteering the limited spare time she has to help orchestrate next week’s second annual Meet Your Maker Okanagan and share the importance of closing the gap between producers and buyers. “Getting those five minutes (with buyers) is gold. “Absolute gold.” See story page A3

CLOSE-UP ▼ FOOD

Meet Your Maker lauded by local growers Close-up from A1 Meet Your Maker was introduced to the Okanagan in 2012, following the success of similar Lower Mainland events held over the past six years. The concept is modelled after Portland’s Farmer-Chef Connection: An effort that has joined farmers, ranchers, food processors and manufacturers with restaurant chefs, grocery retailers, food service operators and distributors for the last 13 years. “Portland is a real leader in local food and has been for a long time,” says Jennifer Vincent, coordinator of Meet Your Maker Okanagan. Vincent, who grew up on a small hobby farm in the Fraser Valley, is passionate about community development and eating local foods. Three years ago she moved to Penticton and since then has started Farm Bag Fundraiser with two other business partners. The initiative helps schools raise money through selling local produce. In its first year, the program sold more than 30,000 pounds of produce. “It’s a really nice way to raise money for a school rather than (selling) chocolate almonds or

A RS

whatever other unhealthy treat is being offered to parents who feel obligated to buy it.” Vincent’s participation in the local food scene led her to the opportunity to coordinate Meet Your Maker Okanagan. “I thought this sounds wonderful…I like the vision and the products, and I like working with people.” Local producers were enthusiastic about the inaugural Meet Your Maker Okanagan as well. “Several of those producers were really raving about the fact there were

‘‘

IT’S IMPORTANT BECAUSE SMALLSCALE FARMERS FACE A WHOLE BUNCH OF CHALLENGES IN GETTING THEIR PRODUCTS TO MARKET. Jennifer Vincent

buyers in that room from companies they’d been trying to communicate with for years, and could never get through to. “It’s one of those wonderful events where this is an unusual opportunity— you don’t usually get all these people in the same

room.” The event is one of several put on by FarmFolk CityFolk, a non-profit organization based in Vancouver. Vincent says the society is a B.C.-focused security support network. “They’ve been involved in pretty much every food security project you could put your finger on over the last 20 years. “They operate in all aspects of building the local food system.” Perhaps the most well known FFCF annual event is Feast of Fields, which aims to connect consumers with the food they put in their mouths and the farms where that food was produced. It also is a major fundraiser for the society. But the primary goal of FFCF is to close the gap between farmers and large grocery outlets, says Vincent. “It’s important because small-scale farmers face a whole bunch of challenges in getting their products to market. “There is a real need to see what we grow in this region in the stores where we shop as consumers. “The local food movement is about keeping not just the food, but the money in the local economy.” Haddow Hohenstein

CONTRIBUTED

PRODUCERS AND BUYERS speak with each other at the inaugural MeetYour Maker Okanagan last April. says it’s difficult to explain how important the work FFCF does is to small-scale producers. “In this valley, being a fruit farmer is really tough,” says Haddow Hohenstein. “Having avenues like this that help (producers) look at other opportunities for what they grow— there needs to be so much more of it.” She adds there is no excuse for producers to miss out on this year’s Meet Your Maker Okanagan. Along with the obvious benefit of pitching products to buyers, Haddow Hohenstein notes there is value in learning the buyers’ expectations, limitations and overall relationship with producers—a topic that will be

covered in the morning workshop by FFCF’s Barbara Joughin. “Why do they have to be so insistent about this and that? Most of the time it comes off that they’re a bunch of really grumpy people and they don’t make any sense. But there are very good reasons why they have to do that, which wouldn’t be obvious to the rest of us.” This year Meet Your Maker Okanagan will also feature keynote speakers Sara and Troy Harker, 2013 B.C. Outstanding Young Farmers of the Year. An optional afternoon workshop will show producers how to leverage social media in their food businesses. Several producers will have an extra chance to

showcase their ingredients as first- and secondyear students from Okanagan College’s culinary arts program will prepare a lunch featuring items contributed by the attendees. “It’s a great way to introduce these up-andcoming chefs to the bounty of our region,” says Vincent. Chef Roger Planiden, a part-time instructor at Okanagan College who will oversee the young chefs, adds the producers benefit because their products can be tasted in professional dishes. It will also give his students a challenging cooking scenario. “It’s going to be like a really huge black box (competition), we really don’t know what we’re

Kelowna Motors

getting,” says Planiden. “We’ll work together as a team and put something together.” The chef, who also owns Culinary Adventure mobile catering company, says the event gives farmers an opportunity to see how their products are being used. “I think it’s a great way for them to meet the chefs, talk to them and ask them what they’re going to do with their products and how they plan on using them.” Meet Your Maker takes place March 6 at Westbank Lions Community Hall. It is not open to the general public. Registration will be open for B.C. food producers until 5 p.m. Sunday, March 3. wpaterson@kelownacapnews.com

Starting Friday, March 1, all residents who receive municipal curbside garbage collection will start getting yard waste pick up every second weeks. The pick-ups will run until the end of November. Place your yard waste into the cart with the green lid and wheel it out for pickup every other week (alternate weeks to your recycling pick up). To determine your yard waste collection week, refer to the Living Greener Calendar at regionaldistrict.com/recycle, or download the RDCO’s smartphone app at regionaldistrict.com/

mywasteapp. “Last year alone we collected almost 14,000 tonnes of yard waste at the curb and turned it into high quality compost instead of it being buried at the landfill,” said Waste reduction facilitator Rae Stewart. “Collecting yard waste separately not only gives us the chance to compost it, it also saves valuable landfill space and reduces unnecessary traffic congestion at the landfill.” Collected yard waste in the Central Okanagan is turned into compost known as GlenGrow, an additive that can be used with your garden soil. For that reason, the regional district says it’s important to keep yard waste free of any plastics

Mayor’s head in sand won’t fix city’s problems

To the editor: Re: Mayor Bristles at Media Slam on His City, Feb. 26 Capital News. The description of Kelowna that appeared in the Vancouver Province shouldn’t be dismissed just because the Lower Mainland is also a collection a strip malls with serious crime problems. We have to stop pointing fingers at each other for things we all recognize as problems. The description is equally true for most of Canada. Our lives are supported by short-term resource extraction economics. Financial profit drives our governments just as it does our criminals. We are all desperately holding on to a lifestyle which, by all accounts, is completely unsustainable. Walter Gray’s response— that we have more bike paths per capita than any other city in Canada—would be hilarious if it weren’t so sadly misguided. First of all, the bike paths he is referring to are the shoulders of some roads which have pictures of bi-

Suzuki the Don Cherry of TV science H has a white beard and a bully pulpit on CBC television, but he doesn’t use it to promote hockey fighting. Instead he sucker punches the oil and gas industry at every opportunity, with increasingly flagrant disregard for the rules of science. Public broadcasting referees keep their whistles in their pockets, wary of offending a legend. He’s David Suzuki, and he has evolved from geneticist to TV celebrity to his current role as the Don Cherry of Canadian science, an angry curmudgeon lashing out at his enemies. Earlier I wrote about Suzuki’s hit piece on the Alberta oil sands, featuring selective pollution studies and a celeb-

rity turn by movie director James Cameron, who toured the alleged carbon crime scene in his personal jet helicopter. Suzuki’s latest Scud Tom missile of misinforFletcher mation was launched Feb. 7 on The Nature of Things. It’s called Shattered Ground, and it borrows heavily from earlier shock docs that target hydraulic fracturing for shale oil and gas. While clearly aimed at the surging shale gas industry in B.C., this hourlong program offers little about B.C.’s long history of gas development. Suzuki’s voice-over refers briefly to B.C.’s Oil and Gas Commission, insinuating it was set up as a pet regulator protecting the industry from stricter oversight.

VICTORIA VIEWS

Mostly the show focuses on places like Dish, Texas and Dimock, Pennsylvania. The Texas segment talks about traces of neurotoxins in residents’ blood samples, blaming this on gas drilling and “fracking,” the new swear word of professional environmentalists. The evidence shows some people have these traces in their blood, but others don’t, which suggests that more likely sources are cigarettes or exposure to disinfectants. Pennsylvania and Colorado are key stops for the anti-fracking crowd. For centuries there have been places known for methane dissolved in groundwater, typically from shallow coal seams. This is where you can find a rustic fellow to shake a jug of well water and touch his Bic lighter to it, producing a brief blue flame. The standard sequence moves to a sink and faucet,

where a more impressive methane fireball is generated. Suzuki’s voice-over notes that this is the scene that really gets media attention. There’s no evidence that drilling caused it, but hey, it’s TV. Science, meet <I>Hillbilly Handfishin’</I>. Protest sequences take up much of F the program. Moms rally against a gas well near a school in Erie, Pennsylvania, forcing evil Canadian corporation Encana to back off. An elderly Quebec woman sobs on camera, convinced that a nearby gas well will trigger a relapse of her cancer. One bit of local content is a segment on fracking-induced earthquakes, presented with sombre alarm by Ben Parfitt, go-to researcher for the anti-industry left in B.C. These are detectable by

A Tradition of Sound Advice

▼ SUPERNATURAL BC FOR SALE

Environment should be in Prosperity fund To the editor: Mr. Brad Bennett is completely ignoring the rest of the picture, namely the natural environmental beauty of B.C. (Making the Case for Premier’s Future Vision, Feb. 26 Capital News) The easiest thing in the world to do is to “go with the flow” and agree that all resources must be ex-

tracted, no matter what, in the name of making money. And yet again, the economy trumps the environment. Premier Clark’s idea is not visionary; it is yet another attempt to “look good” to voters! The real Prosperity Fund must be created with long-term, truly

green energy alternatives that are sustainable, not with selling our beautiful province out from under our feet. There is ample opportunity for creation of such alternatives that the provincial government should be encouraging and supporting. As well, this is a real legacy to pass along to future generations.

With all the revelations about the half-truths and even outright lies perpetrated by energy companies just to sell their industry, it is well-known that they have no conscience and couldn’t care less about the mess they leave. It’s just the “cost of doing business” and they don’t live here anyway. The election in May

provides us with the opportunity to change course before it’s too late—before more irreversible damage is done to the environment—and let common sense prevail. Penny Oyama, Burnaby

Are traffic lights at Hollywood and Highway 33 screwed up on purpose? To the editor: The city wants us to ‘catch the wave’ on Springfield Road but wants us to waste our gas waiting for the light at Hollywood and Hwy 33. At approximately 6 a.m. last Saturday I was at Hollywood Road waiting to go through the light at Hwy33 when the light turned yellow for traffic on Hwy 33, instead of my light

turning green. After that the light for Hwy 33 came back to green with advanced left turn light also for Hwy 33 traffic. Now normally that’s the end of the story— the lights are screwed up—no big deal. But again, I was at the light this Wednesday morning—same thing happened except this time a car almost ran the light because he was thinking his light should be changing to

green. As I was sitting in the Tim Horton’s lot waiting to get my coffee I noticed the light do the same thing three more times before I got the coffee. So, is the city trying for us the ‘catch the wave,’ cause accidents, or save gas? Ian Wright, Kelowna

▼ DRUG-RELATED CRIME

Your Bulk Food Specialists

Matter of time before there’s another death To the editor: Re: Mayor Bristles at Media Slam on His City, Feb. 26 Capital News. Mr. Mayor: In your recent tiff with The Province newspaper and The Edmonton Journal comments on the drug problem here— are you not aware or just ignorant of the drug busts, grow ops, drug-related cases that are be-

fore the Kelowna courts on a weekly basis, not to mention our city police chief’s daughter involved in a drug case. Possession and trafficking of narcotics are in the news on a daily basis. It is fine and dandy that the police have three persons in custody for the Bacon murder, but it has given those three individuals 18 months to prepare

their future and appoint successors to carry on with the gangs and war on drugs. So, Mr. Mayor, when you are downtown and stop to smell the flowers on your patio sidewalks, please think that it is only a matter of time before innocent people are hurt or killed. Pat Chorzempa, Kelowna

Pseudo bike paths don’t equate to safe city Bristle from A8 cycles painted on them. I don’t suppose Mayor Gray spends a lot of time on his bicycle but I may be wrong. If he did he would notice very few people commuting along these ‘bike paths.’ They are unsafe.

Most people won’t send their children to school on a bike and find commuting on a bike themselves inconvenient compared with a car—our city is built for cars, not people. But reacting to the critique in The Province the way he did is like mak-

ing sure our seat belts are fastened as we drive over a cliff. Nothing will be solved by painting pictures of bicycles on the side of the road. Nothing will be solved by ignoring the environmental destruction that accompanies fossil fuel ex-

traction. Brad Bennett’s blanket support for natural gas extraction (Making the Case for Premier’s Future Vision, Feb. 26 Capital News) is simply more of the same. Yes, we could remove everything from this land, sell it to whoever is willing to purchase

it and then—move to another planet? The colonial approach to the planet is a dead end. We can’t move somewhere else when the resources are gone and the water is poisoned. There isn’t anywhere else. Neil Cadger, Kelowna

‘Twist’ to crucial B.C. industry Express yourself

Fletcher from A9 sensitive instruments, as is the case with some mining and other industrial activities, but according to the Oil and Gas Commission, they don’t do any actual harm. It should be noted that Suzuki doesn’t do much beyond reading a script on these shows. He has people to load up the propaganda weapon-

ry, just as his ghostwriter in Toronto cranks out the relatively innocuous weekly columns that run in some Black Press publications. In fairness, most episodes of The Nature of Things are in the original spirit of the show. A recent program on an ancient Egyptian aquifer, voiced by Suzuki over National Geographic video footage, would

be appropriate for a high school classroom. The same cannot be said for this anti-fracking screed, which is plainly and recklessly calculated to twist public opinion against a crucial B.C. industry.

Business Development Bank of Canada, and given the opportunity to compete on a national level to become the Canadian Young Entrepreneur of the Year, Miltmore has set the guitar he invented on a track he could never have imagined. And he’s sure someone else can repeat his success as the contest gets underway for 2013. “It’s just been wild. Life is just fantastic for Mike Miltmore and Riversong Guitars,” he said. “…And the BDC has been such a big sup-

port.” Miltmore and his family own Lee’s Music in Kamloops and off Sutherland Avenue in Kelowna. In the course of working with the luthiers at his business, the young entrepreneur realized that someone needed to create a guitar anyone could simply and consistently replicate at a lower price point. He did some fiddling and soon honed in on a streamlined method of building the instruments, shaving hundreds of hours off the initial assembly and lifetime tun-

ing by creating two pieces he can mass produce and fit together without the need for bracing. He reduced the force from the strings so the guitar has less tuning fluctuation and focused on finding a way to ensure the same instrument can be made to the same specifications by anyone with the basic training he can provide. The whole building process now takes 24 hours—or really the course of an eight-hour shift—rather than the 100 hours it usually takes a luthier. And it virtually eliminates the waste when a guitar just doesn’t come out sounding quite right. “I call it progressive traditionalism,” Miltmore told the Capital News as

he toured southern B.C. last spring trying to drumup votes for his invention. The BDC’s national contest focuses on pushing its contestants to promote their product, particularly with new media and technology. “Young entrepreneurs appear to be motivated by a desire to grow,” explained Fiona Chan, Kamloops BDC. Without major capital or a career of experience and connections to draw on, young entrepreneurs must rely on some of the other innovations readily available to them—like harnessing the power of social media and technological innovations that

spreads through a population plays a key role in public health efforts to manage an infectious disease outbreak and prevent future cases, whether that disease is tuberculosis or influenza. “We can figure out how these bacteria are related to each other by comparing their genome sequences, and when we overlay that information onto a map of the social relationships between cases we can actually reconstruct the path by which an infectious agent worked its way through a population,” Gardy said. Gardy said there was a time when this kind of research would have been cost prohibitive, but advances in science have changed all that with the result that sequencing even thousands of bacterial isolates is not only doable in a reasonable timeframe but also financially viable.

Gardy, who is an adjunct professor in the Department of Microbiology and Immunology at the University of British Columbia, is a dynamic speaker and engaging science writer. She has worked in science documentary television, including appearances on Discovery Channel’s nightly science news magazine Daily Planet, and had several stints hosting episodes of CBC-TV’s The Nature of Things.

Between 2007 and 2011, the region grew by 3,500 businesses and Kamloops, Vernon and Penticton fared nearly as well. Entrepreneurship is a significant portion of the economy and its important for the area and the nation to foster. This competition pushes those who enter to really examine their business plan, acquire the business training to fill in any gaps in knowledge and build a portfolio to prove success, Chan said. “The exercise makes you think better,” she added, noting thinking ahead of the curve often has to replace vast resources for those in an younger set. And thinking ahead, around and along the curve of his guitar has certainly proved a winning number for Miltmore.

Asked if he would do it again, the now 36-yearold business owner said he would sign on in a heartbeat. “I feel like I was born for this contest,” he said, noting his second place national finish netted him $25,000 in products and services. Calling Premier Christy Clark before Paul McCartney arrived in B.C., he has since managed to get one of his guitars in the rock legend’s hands. Worship Magazine has also named his product one of the top five most interesting finds at a huge music products trade show in Las Vegas called NAMM. Anyone interested in the BDO contest must already have a business, and fall between the ages of 19 and 35-years-old. The contest challenges those entrepreneurs who find themselves at a crossroads to generate a solution and pitch that solution to the BDC for a chance to win $100,000. The contest closes April 2 at noon. Anyone can apply o nline at bdcyoungentrepreneuraward.ca.

NEWS ▼ LITERACY

Okanagan Reads event to close out with panel discussion story set right here in the Thompson Okanagan and we’ve had great feedback from those who read the book. We expect to panel discussion to be quite lively,” said librarian Fern Teleglow of the Okanagan Regional Library. “It’s a fitting wrap-up to the Okanagan Reads literacy project, which is designed to encourage people to read, discuss and connect.” Shoot! is one of three historical novels by

award-winning Okanagan author and Canada’s first Poet Laureate, George Bowering, set in B.C. The book follows the adventures of the McLean Gang and brings to life the historical account of the murder of constable Johnny Ussher in the 1800s.

Known as “breeds,” mixed Scottish and First Nations blood, the McLeans were outcasts of both cultures and destined to be outlaws. Bowering has published more than 80 books of fiction, history, plays and poetry.

AVOIDING KNEE SURGERY According to Stats Canada in 2006/2007, 38,400 knee replacement operations were performed. Surgery is not a straight forward solution to knee pain. Here are eight problems with knee surgery: 1) Wait times can be many months to many years, and waiting for relief is not a good plan. 2) Operating on the meniscus, a shock absorber inside the knee, speeds up arthritic degeneration of the knee. 3) You can’t stop at just one…knee replacements

usually last for ten years; then you will need another. Each knee replacement takes away another section of your leg bones, and you only have so much. So delaying your first knee replacement helps you to avoid being wheelchair bound in later life. 4) Surgically replacing a knee joint will not solve the pain from all the connective tissue around the joint. You will still have to solve the problem of healing all the ligaments around the knee that were originally injured or stretched in knee surgery.

5) Some surgeons fail to align the leg length in knee surgery. This leads to unequal leg lengths and can contribute to back and neck pain in the future. 6) With all the infections going around our hospitals today avoiding surgery will help you avoid complications from infection. 7) The normal recovery time from knee surgery is many months. Avoiding surgery means avoiding this off time. 8) Anesthetic reactions. The general anesthetic

used in knee replacement surgery has a number of risks associated with it. Avoiding surgery means you will avoid the side effect risks of the general anesthetic used in surgery. I have effective knee pain treatments that will allow you to avoid knee surgery. I offer Prolotherapy and Prolozone treatments which are non surgical medical procedures that stimulate the regeneration of cartilage, ligaments, and other connective tissues in and around a knee.

The difficulty discovering and treating Munchausen syndrome

O

ne of the more difficult mental illnesses to discover or treat is known as Munchausen syndrome. Munchausen syndrome occurs when an individual with a very deep need for attention pretends to be sick in order to get comfort, sympathy and treatment from medical professionals. Often, people affected by Munchausen syndrome go to great lengths to be credible in faking their illness. They learn many details about the condition, its symptoms and treatments and can go so far as to tamper with diagnostic tests, purposefully injure themselves or subject themselves to unnecessary surgeries or other uncomfortable interventions. All of this in the quest to further their story and gain the medical

HEALING MINDS

Paul Latimer attention they desire. Munchausen syndrome is different from hypochondriasis because the Munchausen patient is truly faking and doesn’t actually believe they have an illness. It is also different from simple medical fraud because a person with Munchausen is not going to these lengths in pursuit of financial or other gain. They have a psychological need for the attention, sympathy and comfort they receive from caring medical professionals. A related but separate

condition is called Munchausen syndrome by proxy. This usually occurs when a parent or guardian causes their child to be treated for a non-existent illness. In these cases, the parent either fakes or causes injury or illness to the child or other dependent thus compelling him or her to be treated as a patient. Recently, the idea of Munchausen by Internet has been gaining some popularity as well as media attention. This is due to the growing number of people faking illnesses online to gain support and sympathy through social media and online support groups. There have been some reported cases where a person has fabricated an entire character complete with family members and friends just to produce a believable

story for online acquaintances. Not surprisingly, when these instances are discovered, the people who have been duped into believing the story are usually very upset and feel deeply betrayed. Risk factors for developing Munchausen syndrome include childhood trauma or growing up with caregivers who were emotionally unavailable. It is also very common for individuals with Munchausen syndrome to experience another co-existing mental illness such as depression or an anxiety disorder. Unfortunately, Munchausen syndrome is very difficult to treat. This is due in large part to the great lengths people with this condition will go to in order to avoid detection. Deception is at the heart of this illness.

If you suspect a loved one may have Munchausen syndrome, a few symptoms to look for include: dramatic stories about multiple medical problems; frequent hospitalizations; vague or inconsistent symptoms; eagerness for frequent tests or risky procedures; extensive knowledge of medical terminology; seeking treatment from many different doctors or health centers; reluctance to allow health professionals to talk with family or friends. Blunt confrontation will likely cause stress and defensiveness in a person with Munchausen syndrome. Instead, try to have a gentle conversation about your concerns and avoid appearing angry or judgmental. Support, care and gentle direction toward psycho-

logical help are likely the best way forward. In cases where there is another mental illness such as depression, it can be very helpful if this condition is

Cozy first impression

Victoria’s performing arts college in Kelowna for spring auditions Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

Arts and employment are not always a handin-hand prospect, but a small, private performing arts college out of Victoria offers quite a return on investment. “Eighty to 100 per cent of our second year grads get contracts and stay in the business,” said Steven Seltzer, Canadian College for the Performing Arts spokesman. Seltzer is a self-professed name-dropper. In it’s 15 years, the school can say it’s trained Grammy Award winner Carly Rae Jepsen, the current casting director for the broadway hits Chicago and La Cage Aux Folles, Duncan Stewart, Bomb Girls star Ali Liebert and this year’s Ragtime lead and at the Shaw Festival, Alanna Hibbert. In Seltzer’s words, the school was developed by a couple with “monster careers”—choreographer Jacque Lemay and his wife actress wife Janis Dunning. Lemay took the lead on the Calgary Olympics opening ceremonies, spent 13 years with the Royal Winnipeg Ballet and event handled Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth’s Royal Jubilee Tour in B.C. “It’s been said, if you ever want to move 10,000 people, he’s the one to do it,” explained Seltzer. The pair worked together as artistic director and program director for the school until their retirement in 2010 and, in the years since, the school has managed to continue choreographing the program to ensure tuition

stays low and the talent top tier. On March 8, recruiters for the school will be in the valley looking for talent from Kelowna to fill next year’s class, and the competition, while stiff, is by no means formidable. One in four people who turn out for auditions are accepted into the school and, once on campus, the new students are put through their paces. Classes take up the bulk of the day for the full two years and after the dinner break the students are back to work rehearsing for shows. The school focuses on dance, theatre and voice, ensuring every graduate knows how to move, act and, at the very least, join the chorus line. “You don’t have to be a triple threat to audition. We’ll train you,” said Seltzer. Vernon graduate Christina Cuglietta-Braun now works with the school and has performed in the Kamloops-based Western Canadian Theatre productions, with Vernon’s Powerhouse Theatre and The Gateway Theatre in Richmond. She now covers private voice, acting and dance for the school. The CCPA Audition Tour launches Saturday, March 2 in Toronto and spreads across the country with stops in Halifax, Gatineau, Winnipeg, Regina, Edmonton, here in Kelowna, Vancouver and Victoria. Video auditions are also accepted until May 1; although, the tour also includes the 2013 New Horizons Scholarship contest where one recipient will receive a $2000 scholar-

ship and a professional photo shoot. Tuition for the school works out to $16,000 per year, but as it is run by a non-profit society, fundraising, bursaries and scholarships generally knock the figure down to $8,000—comparable to any other college education in B.C. One must prebook to audition and the event will

take place at the Canadian School of Ballet, 1012303 Leckie Road in Kelowna. For information contact the college directly at 250-595-9970 or see the website ccpacanada. com.

ome works of art are really better seen in the setting of a small space. The suite of pieces by Halifax-based sculptor Sarah Maloney called Collapse, currently on display at the Kelowna Art Gallery, shows to advantage in our small gallery space, called the Mardell G Reynolds Gallery. Viewers can definitely imagine that they are in a domestic interior, surrounded as they are by Maloney’s six framed embroideries, and facing her antique fainting couch. The almost cozy feeling is enhanced by the warm, bright colours in the densely-detailed paisley fabrics, on which the artist has embroidered frolicking pairs of tulips. Her fainting couch has also been upholstered in orange and red paisley fabric. These materials and their sensual richness hark back to the Victorian period, when rooms were hung with textiles and were crowded with all sorts of furnishings and collectibles. If you use your imagination you might even transport yourself mentally to Highclere Castle. What Maloney has been thinking about is the history of the tulip as a cultivated flower and the subjugation of women. These two topics intersect with the encouragement of Victorian women to improve their domestic

Maloney’s tulips don’t seem Victorian at all, however, as they frolic and dance in pairs on the paisley backgrounds. Even the paisley pattern has an allusion of sexuality, as the yin/yang forms stand for the male and female principles (among other paired opposites). Maloney’s exhibition title, Collapse, is a double-edged one: The raging tulip market collapsed in the 1600s, similarly to the 2008 housing market collapse in the United States. And when we see the 19th-century fainting couch in her installation, we could imagine the urge felt by a woman of 150 years ago to collapse down onto its supportive surface. Indeed, the condition known as hysteria was seizing women by the score, causing them to take to their beds, sometimes for years, for no known reason. Treatments ranged from rest to full-scale surgical mutilation. So nothing in this exhibition is necessarily exactly as it first appears, it takes some looking at and thinking about.

ample (or fainting couch, has 20 bronze tulips poking out of it, all their heads meekly bowed. Why have they knuckled under like this—for lack of water, or from the oppressive pressure of the patriarchy? Although the references in the work are evidently pointing to the past, viewers will not be able to stop there, and may find themselves ruminating on the current status of women, both in North America, and other places in the world, and on the situations of both women of privilege and women of less fortunate circumstances. Sarah Maloney was born and grew up in Toronto. She then studied at Nova Scotia College of Art and Design for her BFA, and the University of Windsor, in Ontario, for her MFA. She has since taught at NSCAD and has exhibited her work throughout the Atlantic Provinces. Though her work has humour and beauty, Maloney’s art seems determined to make us think.

Clark still has it at 80-something; Bell’s Beethoven acclaimed PETULA CLARK: LOST IN YOU (SONY)

Everybody knows Petula Clark’s hits from the mid-’60s when she rode the wave of the British Invasion music brought about by The Beatles.

Pet Clark was the very first British woman to top the charts in North America with songs that are now part of our inner ear DNA with evergreens like Downtown, I Know A Place, Don’t Sleep In The Subway, My Love, etc.

But to most North Americans, Clark’s history has been more or less restricted to those golden ’60s nuggets while her story is much more rich and varied than is commonly known. Clark was a big star during the Second World War as a pre-teen who had her own radio show as a child performer (along with Julie Andrews and Anthony Newly). She had also starred in more than two dozen British films before the ’60s British Invasion gave her a shot at singing stardom on this side of the Atlantic. Most people probably didn’t know that Clark was nearly grandmotherly in the scheme of things when she had the above mentioned hits in her mid-30s and a full decade older than the Beatles members.

SOUNDING OFF

Bruce Mitchell But Clark defied the odds with her smart, peppy, ultra petite appearance and lets not forget that Brit superstar Adele has named her two blockbuster albums 19 and 21 after her age. Anyway, Clark is now in her 80s and still releasing albums and Lost In You is a lot better than one might have thought. The crystalline vocals are no longer there but Clark comes across as totally credible and likable on the synth dreampop songs Cut Copy Me and her self-penned original Reflections—about her youthful “misty memories” singing songs to the

troops 70 years ago. Meanwhile, Clark reprises her signature song with a folky take of Downtown while she seems to snub Yoko Ono in her notes to her cover of Lennon’s Imagine. Other covers of note include Elvis’ Love Me Tender, Gershwin’s He Loves And She Loves and a mind boggling version of Cee-Lo Green’s Crazy. She may be an octogenarian but there is a cool sensual undercurrent as well. C+

of the very best classical violin players in the USA. The Indiana born and raised musician acts as conductor and concertmaster on these two famed Beethoven Symphonies with the venerable Academy Of St. Martins In The Fields, while Bell has previously been a performer with the same collection sawing his bow rather than swinging a baton. While Beethoven’s 5th is arguably the most well recognized symphony, his Nos. 4 & 7 are equally admired by classical cognoscente and this new release is enjoying sparkling notices from those much better equipped to judge than me. One reviewer must have used a sturdy thesaurus to come up with descriptive words that peppered his writing with light, deft, brisk, fresh, clean, graceful, vibrant

clarity etc., as Bell brings his zeal to these two extended compositions. The Washington Post wrote “this was as superb a Beethoven’s Fourth as ever heard...delivered by a conductor of tremendous promise and genuine ideas.” Even my untrained ears could sense the proper adagio (at ease), con brio (with vigor), presto (very fast), poco (gradual) and the allegretto (which is moderately quick therefore slower than allegro but faster that adante) without too much confabulation. Charts don’t seem quite as pertinent with classical music but this Bell/Beethoven disc has made a nice entry in the top five behind Andrea Bocelli (Xs2), The Tenors and The Piano Guys. A

NEWS ▼ OUTDOOR RECREATION

Regional district wraps up Winter Tracks and Treks program Two final events will conclude a popular winter program that took participants to waterfalls, wetlands, cliffs and canyons. Every Sunday and Wednesday since the start of the year, a dedicated group of outdoor enthusiasts have joined a regional district park interpreter to explore various regional parks. The goal of each tour is to provide a unique outdoor opportunity while supporting the conservation needs of the region.

Program leader and regional parks interpreter Nicole Marzinzik said the program took many participants off the beaten track to parks they had never previously explored. “We visited waterfalls, canyons, cliffs, wetlands, cedar forests and some of the best winter views in the Okanagan,” said Marzinzik. “We also learned the value of winter traction devices and poles— sometimes the hard way.”

The final two Winter Tracks and Treks events will be held Sunday, March 3 and Wednesday, March 6. Participants will bike the Mission Creek Greenway from KLO road bridge, crossing toward the Environmental Education Centre for the Okanagan, all the way to Scenic Canyon Regional Park. Registration is required for the 16 km return bike ride, which is being supported by Chain-

Line Cycle. Helmets are mandatory and mountain or hybrid bikes are also required. For more information, call the EECO at 250-

Company’s trail work recognized Tony Czink and Save OnFoods have been acknowledged for work on B.C. Parks/Friends of the South Slopes Society trail adoption program. Local MLA Steve Thomson, B.C.’s Minister of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations, recognized the local business for its participation in the program. A total of 17 local

businesses have adopted trails by performing trail brushing and other trail maintenance as required in Myra-Bellevue Provincial Park, which exceeded the expectations of Friends of South Slopes, the local group that together with BC Parks developed the three-year pilot program. Similar programs may now be expanded to oth-

er BC Parks in the future, said Thomson. “This program is a good example of an organization working together with government to create new ways to motivate both individuals and businesses towards increased volunteerism that benefits the greater community,” he said in making the presentation to the Save-OnFoods store manager.

Filmmakers present their best fishy stories at F3T Kevin Parnell STAFF REPORTER

Five years ago, Kelowna fishermen Travis Lowe and about seven of his fishing buddies gathered in Lowe’s living room to check out some fishing movies. The next year Lowe and about 50 others sat around a local restaurant to watch two fly-fishing films, one of which focused on conservation efforts in Montana. It was then that Lowe decided he would take his passion for fishing and film and combine them to try and help the troubled Kettle River in the Christian Valley. “We watched those movies and that was the light-bulb that went on,” said Lowe. “Right after I played the film I said ‘I’m starting Trout Unlimited Okanagan.’ That’s how it formed. I thought we had to do something to stop what was going on with the Kettle River.” Fast forward three years and Lowe and his group are bringing the fourth annual Fly Fishing Film Festival to Kelowna (March 16, Black Box Theatre). This year is a new company called F3T, the Fly Fishing Film Tour. Lowe’s group Trout Unlimited Okanagan has raised close to $45,000 in those years and the lo-

cal fisher has also become a well-known fly-fishing filmmaker himself, producing corporate fly-fishing films as well as two feature films, including his most ambitious effort that will play at the festival, called Thai One On. “This is without a question the best film I’ve made in terms of my career in fly-fishing filmmaking,” said Lowe this week. “What I’m really proud of is it tells a really interesting story.” Thai One On finds Lowe traveling to Thailand in search of the endangered Golden Mahseer, a member of the carp family of fish and prized for its powerful fight. Lowe meets members of the Montana Fly Company in Thailand and travels deep into the mountains to explore the River of Reflection where local tribes use the Mahseer for food and, with the help of Montana Fly, are trying to conserve the species and create a fish tourism industry. It’s a complex story that has many aspects to it, unlike many films in the fly-fishing genre. The film attracted the attention of the Fly Fishing Film Tour, the biggest and most popular fly-fishing film festival known as F3T that will run in 150 different city’s this year.

KELOWNA fly-fishing filmmaker Travis Lowe shoots on a couple of man-made rafts during the making of his feature film Thai One On. Lowe’s film will run at every F3T festival across North America. “I’m flattered to have my film as one of the F3T features,” said Lowe. “This is the epitome of fly fishing films. I can’t get any higher than this.”

And the F3T will be different than what local anglers have come to see for the past three years at the Fly Fishing Film Festival in Kelowna. Most of the films that will be shown are shorter in length than in past years

and the show will also feature many films that are specific to B.C. and Washington State. “These are shorter films targeted specifically to the Pacific Northwest so the films we will see here are actually put

together for us versus what someone will see in say Miami,” explained Lowe. “I went to Seattle and watched the F3T already and the show is fantastic. These are the highest quality of films in the industry and you can’t see them anywhere else.” The event will again act as a fundraiser for Trout Unlimited Okanagan and is expected to raise over $8,000 more for future conservation efforts on the Kettle River, once a prized trout stream that is being over-fished as well as having its water drained by big agriculture operators, according to Lowe. “The Kettle River is one of the most endangered rivers in B.C. and has been for the past six years,” said Lowe. “I think what’s going on is a complete tragedy and I don’t think anyone is standing up for the Kettle. The

provincial government should have made the Kettle catch and release six years ago. Now with water withdrawals and Big White has made an application for water, the numbers of fish are falling and some people think there is nothing that can be done to save it.” During the film festival the provincial government will make a presentation on the Kettle River and Lowe said they may be announcing changes to the fishing regulations. The 2013 Fly Fishing Film Tour is March 16 at 7 p.m. at the Black Box Theatre. Tickets are $15 and are available at Trout Waters Fly and Tackle Shop. It’s a non profit event with all proceeds going to Trout Unlimited Okanagan. kparnell@kelownacapnews.com

Chiefs pull ahead of Steam in playoffs Kelowna Rockets host After falling behind two games to none to open the series, the Kelowna Chiefs have moved to within a victory of closing out their KIJHL firstround playoff matchup with the Summerland Steam. The Chiefs lead the best-of-seven series three games to two, with Game 6 set for Saturday night in Summerland. Kelowna moved a

game up on the Steam with a 1-0 victory Wednesday night at Rutland Arena. The game’s lone marker came on a deflection by Jagger Bowles with just 1:07 remaining in the third period. Tyler O’Donnell stopped 24 shots for the shutout as the Chiefs won their third straight game. Losing the first two games at home was a

harsh wake-up call for Ken Andrusiak’s team, which finished 27 points ahead of Summerland during the regular season. “We were overconfident going into the series and we paid for it,” said Andrusiak, the Chiefs head coach. “Once we got past that, our experience started to show up. We played our systems better and defensively we did a lot better job. We’ve only

given up two goals in our last three games, so that’s good.” The Chiefs have been battling some key injuries during their first-round series. Captain Kyle Clerke, Scott Renner, Brendan Jost and Brayden Oliver all sat out Game 5 on Wednesday. Game 7, if necessary, would be played on Sunday night at Rutland Arena.

Hurricanes Saturday Eight games remain on the schedule as the Kelowna Rockets hit the homestretch of the 2012-13 Western Hockey League regular season. On Saturday, the Rockets will host the Lethbridge Hurricanes. Face off at Prospera Place is 7:05 p.m.

Then on Sunday, Kelowna will travel to Kamloops to take on the Blazers. Three of the Rockets’ last eight games will be against the Blazers who are second to Kelowna for the B.C. Division lead. The Rockets will also play Vancouver twice, and Prince George and Vic-

toria once each. The regular season concludes Saturday, March 16 at home to the Giants. The Rockets will have home-ice advantage for first round of the WHL playoffs which are scheduled to begin the weekend of March 22 and 23.

UBC vs UCal in CIS championship series Kevin Parnell

d

with 13 points, ranking sixth in Canada West. The fourth-year player set career highs with three goals and 10 assists and had a strong plus-seven rating. Capozzi has played in 97 regular season games

and passed the 100-game mark this past weekend in a playoff game against Regina. She has been a major contributor through two rounds, tallying five points with a plus-six rating in five games.

UBC head coach Graham Thomas was voted as the Canada West’s Coach of the Year. In his first year at the helm, Thomas led the UBC Thunderbirds to the greatest turnaround in CIS

ice for the Thunderbirds, along with all-star Christi Capozzi and fellow blueliner Sarah Casorso. A fourth player, Nicole Brown-John played at POE. Schaupmeyer, who grew up in Alberta, moved to Kelowna in Grade 9, played a year of bantam in Kelowna Minor Hockey, two years with the Thompson Okanagan Rockets female major midget team and one year with the Pursuit of Excellence before heading to UBC. “It’s always a transition going to play in a higher league,” she said. “Some of the girls I’m playing with are 22, 23-years-old. They have the experience and you can’t take that away from them so it’s definitely been a transition. But after a couple of games you just jump right in. In 28 games with the T-Birds, Schaupmeyer had five goals and eight helpers and was a plusfour. The Thunderbirds win last weekend in Regina actually qualified the team for the CIS Championship as the Canada

West conference has two berths in the final so both UBC and Calgary will be attending the championship, no matter who wins this weekend. But Schaupmeyer says they are focused on wining a Canada West title. “We’ve already had team meetings on how our focus is not on nationals but to win the Canada West championship,” she said. “I think everyone is focused on this weekend. We’ve been breaking records for this program all year long. It’s exciting and now we can do it again this weekend.” ••• The accolades kept adding up for the UBC Thunderbirds this week. Not only are the Thunderbirds headed to the Canada West final against Calgary and CIS Nationals in Toronto the weekend after, but four members of the team have been recognized for their excellence by Canada West including Kelowna’s Capozzi who was named a Canada West all star. Capozzi ranked second on the team in scoring for defenceman

STAFF REPORTER

Kelowna native Stephanie Schaupmeyer may be only in her first year with the UBC Thunderbirds women’s hockey team, but that doesn’t mean she is unaware of the struggles the program has had over the past years. In fact it’s a motivator for the 18-year-old forward as the ThunderDbirds continue a strong run through the CIS playoffs, heading to Calgary this weekend for the CIS Canada West final series against the University of Calgary. So far this season the women’s hockey team at UBC has hosted and won its first ever playoff series and added another series victory last weekend, beating the University of Regina in a best-of-three semi-final series to advance to the Canada West final. Schaupmeyer says it’s been a great run for the program, which had struggled for the past several years but has turned things around this year under Canada West coach of the year Graham Thomas. “This is my first year coming in and I didn’t know what to expect, especially with the team coming off the seasons that we had,” said Schaupmeyer on Thursday, hours before departing for Calgary and the Canada West final. “But this year we have an amazing coach as our leader and some of our fifth year players have so much passion. As a first year, and I’m speaking for all of our first year players, we just want to do it for some of the older girls -who never had the chance ,before.” Schaupmeyer is one of three Kelowna minor ehockey players hitting the r

WIN

In his vast collection of awards, it’s the biggest and most prestigious honour yet for UBC Okanagan’s Steve Manuel. A week after being named the Canada West coach of the year in women’s volleyball, the Heat bench boss has been awarded the CIS coach of the year honours. In just their second season of Canada West competition, Manuel directed the Heat to a surprising 15-7 record and a fourth-place finish in the

conference. The Heat made its first ever appearance in the CIS top 10 in November 2012, and was ranked nationally in eight of 14 weekly coach’s polls. In his 12th season at the team’s helm, Manuel becomes the school’s first national award winner since UBCO joined the CIS for the start of the 2011-12 season. “I’ve worked with a lot of these coaches for years and years, but in the past it’s always been in a dif-

Emily Oxland ferent capacity, never really on par with them,” said Manuel, who was in Sherbrooke this week to ac-

cept the award. “But to be coaching on the same level and now to be recognized in this way is such a great honour.” Manuel is a previous five-time winner of the BCCAA coach of the year award, a two-time CCAA volleyball coach of the year, and a double winner of the CCAA national coach of the year across all sports. UBCO athletics director Rob Johnson said Manuel is very deserving of his first CIS award. “I am very pleased for Steve, particularly as I am aware of the very high calibre of the other conference coaches of the year,” said Johnson, director of athletics at UBC Okanagan. “On top of all his other excellent qualities, he is a humble person and I know it means a great deal to him to be recognized by his peers and to be included in a group of nominees he himself holds in such high esteem.” Also honoured this week from the Heat is setter Emily Oxland, who was named to the CIS all-rookie team. Recognized as a Canada West all-star last week, the North Vancouver product posted some staggering numbers in her first season. Oxland recorded 804 total assists, the highest number recorded in the CIS since 2008-09. “She is a leader, a true competitor and simply a winner,” Steve Manuel said of Oxland.

Medals at juijitsu classic Slopestyle races Four members of the Kelowna Judo clubs competed at the Okanagan Winter Classic Juijitsu competition in Vernon last weekend and brought home four medals. The 4 have been cross-training at RDC Kelowna to hone their juijitsu skills, which come with a different set of rules, and is a different fighting style than judo. And the training proved victorious. Dave Guthrie battled his way to a silver medal in the blue belt heavyweight division, only losing in the final to his long-time training partner Chris Smiley. Mielye Mitchell fought in the white belt

lightweight girls division and came away with the gold medal before adding a silver medal in another division, fighting six very tough matches. Dan Maurice competed in the white belt middleweight division, with the most competitors entered, fighting extremely well, capturing the bronze medal. Meanwhile there was also a judo competition the weekend before and Kelowna Judo Club member Bailey Leatherdale made the trek down to the Richmond Oval for the Vancouver International and placed a very respectable third place, amongst very stiff com-

petition from all parts of North America. “Congratulations to all,” said coach Kathy Hubble. “It’s pretty amazing that our guys can switch to another sport, hone their applicable skills so quickly, and bring home some impressive medals to our club. And Bailey is just getting better and better with every competition. “We’re looking very much forward to our next big one, which is the Edmonton International in early April, which will be a good precursor to Nationals in July. A lot of the same athletes will be there, so it’ll be a good test.”

Big White hosts the B.C. Snowboard Provincial Finals with slopestyle and snowboard cross events taking place this weekend. A fun pipe camp will also take place with free coaching, judging and prizes. “The overall series prize money for each discipline is up for grabs with this weekend’s final events,” said Cathy Astofooroff, executive director of the B.C. Snowboard Association. “With these final events being weighted slightly higher for the overall series points, anything can happen.” The events are also the final events to qual-

ify athletes for Nationals which will take place this month. Big White will host the Sport Chek Snowboard Cross National Championships 2013 from March 25 to 30 while the Sport Chek SnowCrown (Freestyle) National Championships are being held in Calgary from March 11 to 18. Some local riders are coming off solid events at Mt Seymour Feb. 16 and Feb 17. Big White development team member Hunter McMorran had a first and a second place finish while Big White’s Jacob Marostenmaki was second in the Saturday event. Other Kelowna riders who took part were Isaiah Peters, Mikhail Wasylyk, Kyle Dorssers, Braedon Russell, Trenton Louie, Oskar Klein, Jacob Marostenmaki, Jaret Boileau, Raymond Nault, Tanner Holland.

Norm Letnick how important agriculture is to our province. While maintaining a balanced budget, we’ve been able to increase spending on agriculture by 20 per cent, which will climb to $79.3 million in 2013/14. These funds will support the industry, helping it remain competitive.. I believe the budget does an excellent job of capitalizing on our competitive advantages, while helping mitigate some of the challenges that, together with our partners in industry, we have identified. B.C. has excellent agricultural producers, including tree fruit and greenhouse growers. We’ve already established programs to help these important industries. For instance, the Buy Local program will help the industry promote its products by helping them

expand their marketing campaigns, while the replant program will help tree fruit growers switch to higher-value fruits. Budget 2013 provides relief to help offset carbon tax costs, including a carbon tax exemption for coloured gas and diesel used by farmers in onfarm equipment and eligible farm vehicles. Agricultural land is vital to our province – environmentally, socially, and economically, so it’s important that we protect it. A major facet of the agrifoods strategy is maintaining a sustainable land base for continued food production. The budget provides an additional $4 million over three years to support the Agricultural Land Commission, which will ensure they have the tools necessary to effectively administer and preserve the Agricultural Land Reserve. It is important to note there are many other elements of our provincial budget that will benefit the agriculture sector. For instance, changes to the Property Transfer Tax Act will support family farm succession. This will provide a tax exemption for farms being transferred through generations of British Columbians.

Dairy producers will also benefit from the $1 million for the School Fruit and Vegetable Nutritional Program, which will be used to provide local milk to students at no cost to them or their families. As agriculture minister, I am proud of the strong, collaborative relationship our government has maintained with our partners in Ottawa, industry, and local governments across the province. It allows us to identify the best way to move forward and meet the needs of our constituents. This relationship allows us to achieve results, such as the Growing Forward agreement, which will help the industry implement business development and risk management programs. The budget builds on the agrifoods strategy, which is set to expand agrifoods to a $14 billiona-year industry by 2017. The investment in agriculture reinforces an important theme in the strategy– competitiveness. It’s all part of developing a fertile environment for B.C. agriculture to thrive. Norm Letnick is the MLA for Kelowna-Lake Country and B.C.’s Minister of Agriculture.

W Dog control service review updateD e ▼ REGIONAL DISTRICT BRIEFS

The Central Okanagan Regional District board has received an update on its efforts to phase-in recommendations stemming from the dog control service review it had conducted in 2012. The consultant’s report outlined the key elements to be considered in developing a new service model that’s focused on responsible dog ownership while acknowledging that dog owners must be active partners with local government in effectively managing human-dog interactions. RDCO staff are working in several areas to further develop the new dog control service model, including a redrafting of the dog bylaw, and providing public opportunity for input and engagement before bringing it forward to

the board for consideration later this year. Other steps to provide a more valued, cost effective service include the use of consent orders in appropriate dangerous dog cases and efforts to conveniently allow the purchase of a new dog licence online.  Currently, only licence renewal transactions can be completed on the RDCO website.

WATER BOARD

The regional board has endorsed sending 11 applications to the Okanagan Basin Water Board (OBWB) for grant funding consideration. The applications are being made under the OBWB water conservation and quality improvement grant program.  Four of the applica-

tions are from RDCO departments and the remaining seven have been submitted by a variety of non-government agen-t a cies.

Rediscovering wonders of the valley

Womens’ Day exhibit Friday, March 8 is International Women’s Day and to celebrate the economic, political and social achievements of women around the world, and to mark the day, the Kelowna Heritage Museum has put together its latest exhibit The Land is Our Culture. The exhibition aims to bring the voices of aboriginal women, who are often greatly underrepresented, to the forefront, featuring the work of two First Nation artists: Barb Marchand and Janine Lott. The two artists explore multiple themes such as the important role that women play in the Okanagan culture.

The sagebrush and sand dune-like landscape from Summerland south fascinated Elie, as did the semi-arid conditions that show themselves best during this stark time of year. The whole adventure reminded me of the many marvels and adaptability that mankind sometimes displays—and the impacts we can have on our environment. Often the focus of such actions is placed on negative aspects but the two days of travel inspired more of the positive points for us. I explained how 150 years ago the Valley was much more desert-like in appearance than it is today—before agriculture and irrigation had a significant impact on the landscape and climate. Elie was enchanted by the news that the Osoyoos area boasts ownership to the only true desert desig-

nation in Canada, and nearly jumped out of his driver’s seat when we spotted the native wild mountain sheep along the side of the highway. Most intriguing to me, however, was the plethora of wineries and vineyards that have literally sprung to life all along the Highway 97 corridor. The central and south Okanagan now plays host to almost 100 such facilities, another testimony to our natural climate augmented by agricultural skills and irrigation. We truly are blessed to

had the pleasure of travelling to Oliver and then Osoyoos in the last few days with Virtual British Columbia Tours president Elie Marchante. And the enjoyable journey reminded me of how truly blessed we are to live in this marvellous Okanagan Valley. Now, granted, the doldrums of February’s grey skies and pre-spring flora are not the finest time of the year to enjoy the spectacular landscapes, but the trek still proved to be somewhat riveting. As a passenger, I was granted the additional bonus of being able to truly enjoy the views from within a warm vehicle. As we travelled along the road, I related to Elie a bit of my limited knowledge of the history of the Okanagan as we passed through Summerland, Penticton and Okanagan Falls. A relative newcomer to B.C. and Canada, (Elie moved from Cuba to Saskatchewan eight years ago and then to Kelowna) he’s rapidly educated himself about much of the historical background of our valley. His never-ending thirst for information encouraged him to query me for even more insider information. I related tales my grandfather (Reg Atkinson of the Penticton pi-

Treating the problem of hip pain with the aid of acupuncture

H

ip pain is a common problem that can have a wide variety of causes. The exact location of the hip pain can usually provide clues as to the underlying cause. Problems with the hip joint itself typically cause pain on the inside of the hip or the groin. Problems with the muscles, ligaments, tendons and other soft tissues that surround the hip joint will typically cause pain on the outside of the hip, upper thigh or outer buttock. Because the hip is of course connected to the rest of the body, hip pain can sometimes be caused by problems in other areas of the body, such as the lower back or knees,

NEEDLE NOTES

James Kaufman called referred pain. Other causes of hip pain may be arthritis, including rheumatoid and osteoarthritis; injuries such as bursitis, hip or pelvis fracture, dislocation, sprains, strains, tendinitis, herniated discs, pinched nerves, and sciatica. It can also be caused by more serious conditions such as cancer or osteoporosis. If hip pain cannot be resolved with self-care

measures, treatment for hip pain may vary, depending on the problem that is causing it. Most often it will involve medications such as anti-inflammatories, pain killers, and cortisone shots combined with physiotherapy, exercises, and/or taking a rest from our regular routine to allow the body time to heal. In more severe cases, surgery may be considered. Of course, we would all prefer a lingering problem to resolve rather than to manage it with medications, and to resolve it before it becomes serious enough to warrant surgery. This is where acupuncture comes in. Acupuncture is a great option for pain and muscu-

lo-skeletal problems and typically yields very positive results in all types of pain problems, both chronic and acute. Treatments can help to relieve the pain quite quickly, and also to reduce inflammation and boost the body’s healing mechanisms, which may be just what is needed to resolve a lingering or chronic problem. In Chinese medicine pain is often a due to an obstruction of the flow of qi-energy and blood throughout the body’s meridians or channels. Because qi-energy and blood circulation are what allow the body to perform its regular functions and also to heal when injured, any time the flow is blocked, prob-

ness and allowing the area to function properly again. While musculo-skeletal problems like hip pain may be due to external causes such as a fall or an overuse injury, internal weaknesses of the body can complicate or aggravate a problem once it is there. Part of an acupuncturist’s job is to look at the overall health of the internal functions to find any areas of imbalance, particularly those that affect the meridians of the hip. Imbalances will contribute to weakness in the hip and make it more prone to injury, as well as more slow to heal. A good example of this is a deficiency of the kidneys, which gradually

weaken as we age. This weakness can make us more prone to lower back pain and hip fractures or pain because this area is very closely tied to the health of the kidneys. By improving overall health and correcting imbalances that have an influence on the hip, we can strengthen and improve the health of the hip area so that it functions better and is less prone to future injury down the roadall good news for those suffering from hip pain!

Emotional transparency can prove to be a powerful gift

I

n the last week, I heard shocking news of a death. One of my favorite authors, Debbie Ford, passed away last week at the very young age of 58. Debbie wrote many best-selling books and the one that stands out for me is The Secret of the Shadow. I was greatly influenced by her writing style and subject matter. Debbie had the uncanny skill of talking about inner growth work in a very concrete, real and easy to digest way. I believe that part of her skillset stemmed from the fact that she had many life challenges she personally overcame. With the added gift of personal insight and complete transparency, she was able to determine what obstacles in her own life were preventing her from living her highest potential. In fact, her emotional transparency turned out to be a very powerful gift to many. Developing this flair of personal insight and complete transparency takes one big scoop of humility and another equal scoop of courage. This inner work in a way represents the canvas of our lives. It helps us determine how the strokes and colours that we use to paint our lives have altered our perspective or the way in which we see our world. Perhaps we have experienced abuse from our childhood and the background of our picture is dark and gloomy. Or perhaps we have endured unhealthy relationships or illness that resulted in a need to feel protected, showing up as a need for control, rigid thinking or feelings of separation. It is easy to understand how we cannot begin to express our full potential when we are only using certain strokes or colours of the pallet. In order to really create the masterpiece work of our lives it demands that we intimately know and acknowledge the feel-

DEBBIE FORD WAS FABULOUS AT DESCRIBING ALL OF THE ONGOING MENTAL NOISE INSIDE OUR MINDS.

Debbie Ford was fabulous at describing all of the on-going mental noise inside our minds that are associated with a

limited perspective. She called this running internal dialogue the shadow box. “Your shadow box is filled with every thought you’ve ever suppressed— all your judgments, all your righteousness, all your unprocessed emotional wounds, and all your shadow beliefs,” she wrote. “Most people never understand that their internal dialogue is like a bad tape that plays over and over, unconsciously, without edit. Most of us listen so intently that we can’t even hear what the people around us are saying.” It was in the courage to listen to my own shadow box that I came to know myself and also embrace and love these parts of me that did not feel lovable. Later in my life, it was this unique skillset that allowed me to identify when my brain was stuck in a specific pattern after I had suffered from an injury to the limbic system in my brain.

Knowing the brush stokes that I used allow me to integrate my internal world to produce the masterpiece of my life. As Debbie wrote: “I want you to see that al-

overnment of Canada is helping Canadians with disabilities participate in the labour market. On March 8, I will be participating in the National Educational Association of Disabled Students Kelowna Strategies to Employment forum on behalf of federal Human Resources and Skills Development Minister Diane Finley. Youth Awareness funding for this event was announced by my colleague James Moore last September. As you know, Canada is facing skills and labour shortages in many sectors, and finding ways to get all Canadians working is fundamental to meeting this challenge.

Ron Cannan People with disabilities face particular challenges entering the job market and that’s why partnerships with associations such as the National Educational Association of Disabled Students are so important. Canadians with disabilities have a tremendous amount to offer em-

ployers but they remain under represented in our workforce. The overall labour market participation rate for working age adults with disabilities is just under 60 per cent, compared with other working-age Canadians at 80 per cent. Following up on a commitment made in the 2012 Economic Action Plan, the government appointed a panel on labour market opportunities for persons with disabilities in July 2012 to consult with private-sector employers, organizations and individuals on the labour market participation of people with disabilities. Panel members included chairman Kenneth J. Fredeen, general coun-

sel of Deloitte and Touche LLP Kathy Martin, senior vice-president of human resources with Loblaw Companies Limited Mark Wafer, owner of Megleen Incorporated, which operates six Tim Hortons’ franchises in Toronto and Gary Birch, executive director of the Neil Squire Society. The panel submitted its report to Finley and Finance Minister Jim Flaherty on Dec. 3, International Day for Persons with Disabilities. The panel found that, while many companies are making strides in hiring people with disabilities, more education and training is needed to overcome barriers. The report recognized

that hiring people with disabilities is good for business. It also advised that leadership and effective community partnerships are essential to success in increasing employment among people with disabilities and highlighted a number of actions employers can take to accommodate people with disabilities in their workplaces. The report is available at www.hrsdc.gc.ca . The federal government’s top priorities are creating jobs, economic growth and long-term prosperity. To address critical skills shortages, we must ensure that everyone who wants to work has the opportunity. Through the Eco-

nomic Action Plan, the government is investing an additional $30 million in the Opportunities Fund to help more people with disabilities gain the hands-on experience they need to find jobs. Events such as the NEADS’s Kelowna forum provide an opportunity for students with disabilities to connect with employers who can benefit from their skills and talent. I’m looking forward to talking with local employers, service providers and postsecondary students and graduates with disabilities to discuss ways in which the federal government can work in partnership to help people with disabilities obtain the skills and training

they need to participate in the workforce in our community. The participation of people with disabilities in our workforce is important to the economic and social well-being of our country and our federal government is committed to working with our partners to remove barriers and help Canadians with disabilities find jobs and achieve their full potential. If you have any questions about this issue or any matter related to the federal government, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Based on consultations with stakeholder groups, including the Vancouver Board of Trade, the B.C.

He asked me to tell you why it is, so here goes: You may have heard that Switzerland is where ever so many watches come from and that the Bahnhofstrasse in Zurich has stores just full of them. That may be important if you are one of those people who can do something called telling time (which I’m starting to figure out), but

for me, the best part is going into Beyer, a store that has its own watch museum. When you are inside, you should ask everyone, “How is your day feeling?” And when your daddy finally says that, maybe we had better leave, go up to everyone again and say, “Auf Wiedersehen!” Then convince a nice lady to give you a red apple from a bowl and go outside while eating it. Make your daddy sit on a cold bench so you can eat your apple and watch ever so many street cars go by and call out the route numbers on top of each. Later, join your mommy and daddy for a tram ride that is even more fun than taking the “really big bus” back home. Riding a tram is

easy to do in Zurich because those route numbers are clearly marked, and friendly Zurich people are always around to help your parents find their way when they get lost—which mine tend to do. Switzerland is known for its terrific wooden toys, which have been made here for longer than even my daddy can remember, which is hard to believe. Want one? First, convince your parents, on a stroller tour of the lovely old town, that all you want is, “one little car.” Get them to take you to Franz Carl Weber, the most famous toy store in Switzerland. Then run from your stroller to the handmade wooden model of a yellow Swiss

using the binoculars the hotel had left in our room. The hotel’s restaurant, the Eden, served us a dinner that mommy and daddy both said was the finest hotel dinner they had in their ever so many visits to Zurich. Daddy had soup and meat (Thai consomme with housemade shrimp dumplings, followed by a tagliata of beef filet); I had a pile of pasta on my plate, and I even ate some of it. Then I broked the plate, but the restaurant had ever so many others—I just wasn’t allowed to touch any of them after that. My daddy says I have a specialty in bashing precision German things— like the Miele vacuum cleaner that wasn’t working so well after I took it for a ride around our house. At dinner, I took daddy’s camera and dropped it. There was a “bash!” and daddy’s very brand-new B+W 72mm filter went from looking like finely made German glass to something like a paper snowflake.

Whenever I get dessert, I also ask for a little cake. Lucky for me, the Eden makes really great little cakes. So does Caffe Al Leone, where we went for apple juice the next day. I noticed that, in Zurich, people who are drinking hot things

like coffee, tea or chocolate also like to have little cakes. These are very smart people. At Blaue Ente, another restaurant, my mommy ordered a plate of venison that she said was the best she had in ever so long; my daddy had pasta (meat ravioli in a foam truffle sauce); and I had spaghetti, which is really

pursuits. Then she gives you two little cakes. But I was bored by then with the videos, so that was a really good trade. There are ever so many other fun things we did in Zurich, like buying children’s music and chocolate milk and another shirt to wear after ever so many that my mommy had neatly packed were yucky from chocolate milk and little cakes. But the best part was on our last day. We were staying this time at the airport, just back in Zurich from our vacation (in Arosa, in the Swiss Alps), and for only one night so that I could adjust and not get cranky before we flew home. That night, at D the Hotel Radisson Blu at the airport, we saw a Wine Angel. The hotel has a tall wine cellar right in the lobby. It is so tall, a woman in a harness “flies” up to get the bottles. That’s silly! But this Wine Angel did her job so well, a man fell off his barstool, so much did he enjoy what he was drinking. But the next day was the one when I went in my stroller through the Zurich Airport, which is clean and full of signs to make sure that people who get lost a lot, like mommy and daddy, get where they want to go—like to great stores where we bought ever so much chocolate. We went to the observation deck, where there was a playground that had a big make-believe Swiss International airplane where kids could go inside and pretend they are pilots and passengers. On our way to the real Swiss airplane, my daddy made a funny face when the left rear wheel of my stroller, which had been making a grrrr-grrrr noise for days, broked and dragged sideways along the nice clean floor of the airport. That is OK because I’m big now and I real-

ly would rather walk on board the Swiss airplane and say, “How’s your day feeling?” to everyone. Nice people who all wore blue and white gave me little cakes and chocolate ice cream, and I got to watch kids’ videos on my seat back, even though my own DVD player had been broken by what my daddy wants you to know is a robust but balanced example of a unique Swiss varietal. I really like Zurich. I really like the hotels and the airport and flying in real Swiss airplanes. My daddy says that none of the friendly people who helped us is soon ever to forget me. I’m OK with that.

sweeter. I mash the gas, blast past and crack my own windows to hear the distant cheers of a vivid imagination, along with the grandstand echoes of the Jeep’s engine and exhaust roar. And, yes, you did read that right—Jeep. As ludicrous as that may sound at first—a descendant of the original army offroad warrior lumbering about on a track designed for Formula One cars—anyone familiar with the SRT legacy will know that it really isn’t that much of a mismatch. The 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT is the performance offshoot of Jeep’s premium flagship. It makes its muscle the old fashioned way, with brute force and V8 power, but that classic combo has been stroked with technological changes made across the board for the 2014 Grand Cherokee lineup, modifications that make this the fastest Jeep ever. The SRT promises performance times of 0-100 km/h in 4.8 seconds, 0-160-0 km/h in 16.3 seconds and it can cover the classic drag race quarter mile in the mid13 second range. All of

the increase in the number of cogs makes a nod to better fuel economy. There’s even a new Eco button on the centre-stack, that will adjust shifts and performance on those rare occasions when an SRT driver isn’t giving the gas pedal the full welly. Fuel economy is now rated at 16/10.7L/100km (city/hwy). I last tested a 2012 SRT8 predecessor (rated at 17.1/11.4L/100km (city/A hwy)) and averagedc 17.2L/100km. My com-t bined numbers are usually closer to the “city” rating so I would expect the new 2014 SRT to give you a real world average of around 16L/100km. While I’m not too sure how often SRT drivers will engage the Eco but-

Launch button optimizes engine power, traction to hustle Jeep from B2 ton, I’m pretty sure they will be fascinated with the new Launch button designed to control initial acceleration. Stab the button, floor the gas and the big behemoth will optimize engine power and traction to hustle you down the road. That power is put down to the pavement through an improved and retuned Selec-Track fulltime four-wheel-drive

system that adapts torque distribution through five driver-selected mode settings on the console— Auto, Snow, Tow, Sport and Track. The front/rear power ratios for those different setting are 40/60 Auto, 50/50 Snow and Tow, 35/65 Sport and 30/70 Track. After all this discussion about get-up-and-go, it wouldn’t hurt to mention that the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT also

has some other impressive performance values, like 100-0 km/h braking in 35 metres (116 feet) and a taut and sport-tuned suspension designed to handle its mass and muscle. All of this performance potential is wrapped in a handsomely revised package. The signature, seven-slot grille is shorter and gnarlier. New slimmer headlamps are set against a unique black background to distinguish SRT from other 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee models. LED light treatment is mirrored front and back. And a more aerodynamically efficient rear spoiler tops an all-new, one-touch powered liftgate branded with a new SRT badge (the engine cylinder number reference has been dropped). Inside, the race-inspired interior features all the bells and whistles you’d expect from this premium trim level. New enhancements inside the 2014 Grand Cherokee SRT include the new Uconnect 8.4-inch display screen and multimedia controls with SRT-exclusive Performance Pages, including recent track times, lateral acceleration, 0-100 km/h times and much more. There’s a new leather-wrapped, T-handle shifter, new gauge display and a redesigned, SRT-exclusive heated three-spoke steering wheel with a flat bottom, bigger paddle-shifters and comfort, convenience and con-

Obituaries

My wonderful friend, Gertrud passed away at the Central Okanagan Hospice on February 25, 2013 at the age of 79, after a long courageous battle with cancer. Gertrud was predeceased by her husband, Werner in 2006 and survived by one son, Peter(Lily), two grandchildren and one great-grandson, of Beaumont, AB. Gertrud was an accomplished stitcher and created many beautiful framed embroideries. She loved her home, her garden with the beautiful roses and shopping. I had the privilege of being her friend/caregiver prior to her stay at Hospice and Gertrud leaves me with precious memories. I want to thank the incredible staff, nurses and volunteers for the wonderful care, compassion and love that was given to Gertrud and (me) during her 9 month stay in your beautiful facility. You truly became her family, you always made her feel special with your hugs and kind words. Allan and I will miss our friend and neighbor. Rest In Peace My Friend.~ Kristina Chase Donations can be made to the Central Okanagan Hospice 2035 Ethel Street, Kelowna, BC. V1Y 1Z6

It is with great sadness that we announce that Merle passed away peacefully in her sleep at home. She was predeceased by her husband Tom, in 1996.She will be lovingly remembered by her daughter Betsy Buchanan (Bob), her granddaughters Dawn MacLeod (Glenn) and Dee Buchanan (Dorothy). She will also be sadly missed by her great-grandchildren Joel and Jana as well as Dorothy’s children Caitlyn and Matthew. Merle was born in Montreal 97 years ago and worked in the catering department at Eaton’s. In 1974 the family moved to Cranbrook, and then to Kelowna 33 years ago. She enjoyed her card games with all who shared her life-her family and friends. Up until recently, she also enjoyed going out shopping at WalMart twice a week, where she greeted sales staff as old friends, not to forget the bus drivers who used to drive her there. Her family was her greatest joy, from making gingerbread houses with her grandchildren to making up Christmas packages, etc. She also had a strong passion for the Toronto Blue Jays, cheering them on the whole season, as well as watching tennis and curling. She herself was an avid baseball and tennis player in her youth. In her last years, she enjoyed our pets, as well as watching the many birds that came to the feeders in the back yard. We will miss and cherish our memories of our “NANA” and we are so thankful that we were able to have her at home in her last years. The family will hold a private celebration of her life in the near future. Condolences may be sent to the family by visiting www.mem.com and searching her name under stories. Arrangements entrusted to First Memorial Funeral Services, Kelowna, BC (250)762-2299.

▼ SPRING IS COMING

What it means to be a guarantor or to co-sign a mortgage

Paint is easy way to bring new life and style to your home

People often freely interchange the terms guarantor and co-signer with regards to a mortgage, but each carries very different responsibilities and rights. To begin with, a guarantor or co-signer will be required if the applicant is not able to obtain a mortgage approval independently—usually due to poor credit, inadequate down payment, insufficient employment history or questionable income. Most mortgages will be approved if there is someone to back the borrower should he/she have any trouble making the payment. A co-signer is basically a co-owner being registered on title and equally accountable for the payments although it is commonly known that he/she will not make the payments. Co-signers are typically used when you need to support the income of the mortgage applicant. As a co-applicant, the co-signer will go through the typical application procedure which involves a credit check and disclosing all assets and liabilities as well as employment information. They are required to sign all of the mortgage documents and can expect to remain on title until such time as the applicant qualifies for the mortgage on the own. A co-signer is a co-owner. A guarantor personally guarantees the payments will be made if the original applicant defaults. The guarantor has no claim to the property because he/she is not on title but as guarantor he/she does sign the mortgage documents. A guarantor has to be stronger financially than a

co-signer because he promises to carry the entire debt should the homeowner default. During the application process they will undergo a credit check and must disclose assets, liabilities and income. It is a huge responsibility as the guarantor has fewer rights than a co-signer. While their obligation is the same as a co-signer, they do not have the luxury of being on title so they don’t have a claim to the property. If the homeowner defaults on the payments and the situation deteriorates to the point that the homeowner can’t meet his/her obligations, the home will usually be sold and the guarantor will be responsible for the missed payments as well as any loss associated with the sale. Most lenders will offer early release policies that free the guarantor from obligation (usually after 12 months) if the borrower is current with payments and has established good credit or employment history. Before agreeing to act on behalf of an applicant both co-signers and guarantors need to evaluate the commitment they are willing to make. If for example they wish to purchase their own home in a few years or take on any major debt such as a car/boat they may not qualify because of their commitment as a guarantor or co-signer. Of Prime Interest is a collaboration of mortgage professionals Trish Balaberde (250-470-8324), Darwyn Sloat (250-718-4117) Kristin Rosdal (250-878-3007). www.kelownahomemortgages.ca.

Paint from B16 member if it doesn’t work out you can always repaint it. Paint is the best way to bring new life and style into your home, but sometimes finding the perfect colour can be a challenge. It can be overwhelming to go into a paint store and see an array of paint chips in a sea of colours—even if you think you know the colour you want. We’ve all had that experience where we’ve seen the “perfect” colour in a magazine or on television, only to get it home and find it looks different in our space. Often, landing on the right colour is all about the lighting. While paint formulas remain consistent, the combination of natural and ambient lighting in each room will cause the colour to look different on the wall. “The trick is to bring

home a few tester cans in various shades of the same colour to see how it looks in your space,” says blogger Jennifer Flores, with Rambling Renovators. “The paint may look great in the store, but in your own home with the mix of natural and electric light the colour may be completely different.” Wall paint will also look different when it’s wet and will often dry to a lighter shade so having a test patch that dries completely is the best way to be sure.

PAINT PERFECTION TIPS

• Flat or matte finish will absorb light and hide imperfections; best used in bedrooms, dining or living rooms • Semi-gloss or highgloss reflects light and is best used on perfectly smooth surfaces; best used on trim and doors, and is not recommended for walls • Bring tester cans

home and test patches of each on wall • Natural and electric light can impact colour so be sure you see your paint test with both

COLOUR ON THE MIND

It’s well established that there is a direct correlation between colour and psychology. Certain colours can make us feel relaxed, energized and can promote creativity, while other hues may invoke anxiety and stress. It’s important to consider the psychological impacts of a colour when selecting the right paint for every room in your home. The psychology behind colour selection and how people approach colour is often reflective of the surrounding environment. External factors such as a challenged economy or a long winter can result in people looking to bring bright colours into their wardrobe or decorating choices.

Last week for first-time buyers to save up to $20,000 on a new home Why Should Buyers Act Quickly?

Dwell is locateD at 1851 Ambrosi Road in Kelowna. Display homes are open Saturday & Sunday 1-4pm. First-time homebuyers only have one week left to take advantage of the $20,000 savings incentive being offered by local builder Mission Group. Buyers must act quickly as only 4 homes remain eligible for this offer and sales on these homes must close by March 27, 2013, because of the Easter long weekend at the end of this month. If you are a first-time buyer, now is an ideal time to purchase your first home for a number of reasons. In addition to low interest rates and the $10,000 B.C. First-Time New Home Buyers’ Bonus (which ends March 31, 2013), Mission Group is offering an additional $10,000 discount to purchasers. “This is a great opportunity for first-time home buyers to save on the purchase of a new home, like those at Dwell in mid-town

Kelowna,” says Darcy Nyrose of Nyrose & Associates from Coldwell Banker Horizon Realty. “These incentives are only available for a limited time so buyers need to act quickly.” Here is an example of how the current incentives would break down on the purchase of a new townhome at Dwell: Example: #6 -1881 Ambrosi Road, Kelowna: 2-bed, 2-bath, 2-car garage, rooftop patio List Price: $299,900 incl. net HST LESS $10,000 Builder Discount LESS $10,000 B.C. First-Time New Home Buyers’ $10,000 Bonus (if you qualify) = $279,900* for a new home at Dwell.

In order to qualify for all incentives available to first-time buyers at Dwell, an offer must be made on a home by early March. “While the B.C. First-Time New Home Buyers’ $10,000 Bonus ends March 31, 2013, homebuyers should write on offer on a home by March 10, 2013, to allow time to finalize financing and for subject removal (usually 7-14 days), plus 7-10 days for conveyancing,” says Nyrose. “While it is possible to close a deal on a new home in as little as two weeks, it would be difficult and you might feel rushed,” he says. “So, if you are considering purchasing your first home it is important to act quickly in order to take advantage of these great, limited time savings opportunities.” Details and restrictions may apply to these offers, call Darcy Nyrose today at 250-5751946 to learn more and to see if you qualify.

Why Choose Dwell?

Dwell is the perfect alternative to condo living and the only urban-style townhome community in mid-town Kelowna. Here are some highlights: 1. LOCATION- close to everything you need without having to get into your car. 2. PRICE - with prices including net HST and limited time incentives, the time to buy is now. 3. PRIVATE - 2-car garage (no parkade). 4. STYLE - only new, brownstone-style townhomes with private rooftop patios. “The $10,000 builder incentive only

applies to the next four homes sold at Dwell, and there are a number of move-in ready homes to choose from,” says Nyrose. “Home buyers need to act quickly in order to have their choice of floor plan, which range from 1,158 to 1,361 sq. ft. in size.” Tour Dwell’s three display homes at 1851 Ambrosi Road, Saturdays and Sundays from 1-4pm or by appointment, call 250-575-1946.

OKANAGAN

shOwCAsE ▼ SPRING IS COMING

Paint colours will improve your mood The winter months in the Okanagan can be dark and dreary, leaving many of us to crave colour as spring awakens. In your home, the least expensive way to brighten it up is with a simple can of paint. A fresh coat, a bright accent wall or a new paint treatment can help us physically and psychologically brush out winter and welcome spring. The daunting task of selecting a colour scheme without the help of a professional designer can be overwhelming. More paint companies are going that extra step to offer consumers tools to help them make coordinated choices.

For the tech-savvy doit-yourselfer, there are mobile apps which can help with “visioning” a room. For those who are a little more low-fi and enjoy a trip to the local paint dealer, Canadian-based Para Paints has recently launched its ColourSquare tool as part of its 2013 Colour Forecast Palette. The tool is a simple cut out, designed to help even the most inexperienced decorator choose the right palette of complementary hues. With the only fullsize chips on the market, Para is making decorator choices easier than ever. One trick that design-

ers often use to develop a room’s colour scheme is to start with a piece of art, or fabric and use that as the jumping-off point. While some may want bold colours on their walls, others may choose to bring a neutral room to life with the help of a bright accent wall, or pops of colour in accent pillows, rugs and art. Keep in mind that the paint colour you select will set the mood of the room. However, at the end of the day no one knows your design preferences better than you—so have fun, take chances and re-

Weighing the pros and cons of the rent-to-own program

A

re you newly self employed, new to Canada or have bad credit but still seek to join the wonderful world of homeownership? Then you may want to consider a rent-to-own program option. But there are many things to consider before taking this leap, the first being to establish if this is the right scenario for your situation. Usually under the rent-to-own program, the seller and the buyer enter into a purchase option or lease agreement option with a term that lasts anywhere from one to five years. Typically, when embarking down the road of rent-to-own, a buyer may have a deposit less than five per cent

or none at all. This program allows a buyer’s monthly rent to contribute to the deposit at the end of the set term. In some instances, the tenant/buyer are responsible for the maintenance and repairs to the subject property, so that added cost for the buyer needs to be considered. Another thing the potential buyer should keep in mind— they are not able to qualify for a mortgage today it is important to determine what steps need to be taken in order to be in the best possible posi-

tion at the end of your lease agreement to be able to obtain the proper financing. There are great advantages for a rentto-own purchaser, Ceinwen such you get to try out neighbourhood Morgan the and see if it is suited for you. Another great advantage is if the market price of this home is more than the agreed upon price at the beginning of your rent-to-own term—at the end of your lease, you still get to buy it for the same price. For the worst case scenario, if the

market takes a turn downward, the buyer can forfeit the rent payments and have no obligation to follow through with the purchase. As there are many advantages for the tenant/purchase of a rent-to-own agreement, there are just as many for the landlord/seller, such as tenants on rentto-own typically take better care of the property, thinking that they may own it one day.
