TEAM CAPTAIN Max French leads his West Kelowna Warriors into a first round BCHL playoff round against Merritt this weekend.

ARGENTINA offers travelers a mix of olives and wine to keep them happy, and being the home country of the new pope of the Catholic Church won’t hurt the marketing tourism campaign either.

SUBARU calls its redo of the 2014 Forester sport ute an evolution rather than a revolution, as the automaker feels it has made a great vehicle even better.

Fitness ready to take flight

UBC Okanagan athletics director Rob Johnson and UBCO campus recreation coordinator Layne McDougall in front of the nearly-completed The Hangar alongside the campus gymnasium. WARREN HENDERSON/ CAPITAL NEWS

Warren Henderson

STAFF REPORTER

A

self-admitted “gym rat,” there are few things Simon Pelland values more than exercise and staying fit. As a varsity athlete and human kinetics student at UBC Okanagan for the last five years, meeting those needs has seldom been easy. With just over 1,200 square-feet of fitness space on the Kelowna campus serving more than 8,000 students and staff, finding ample time and room to work out has been, to say the least, a challenge. So when UBC Okanagan announced in the fall of 2011 that construction of a new fitness and wellness centre would soon begin, Pelland was among the thousands on campus who had reason to applaud. Named The Hangar, the 8,800 square-foot facility will feature studio space on the lower level for activities such as yoga and zumba, while the upper level will include both cardio and resistance training equipment. With construction to be completed by late May or early June, Pelland said

Simon Pelland The Hangar will be a welcome addition for both the campus population and the community. “With the fitness area we have now, people were often deterred from using it, a lot of times it’s just too crowded and busy,” said Pelland. “So I think having that much more space, and a state-of-theart facility will fill a lot of that need. It might even recruit students to the area because they see what we’re trying to achieve here. “I think it’s going to be excellent, a lot more people from on and off campus will want to use the gym,” added Pelland, “and they’ll be a lot happier when they do.” Connected to the existing gymnasium on the UBC Okanagan campus, The Hangar comes with an approximate price tag of $4.1 million.

The majority of the funding—$3.5 million— was donated by Kelowna Flightcraft owner Barry Lapointe, Mary Jo Schnepf and their family. The donors had a number of conditions for the new facility, including the portrayal of an aviation theme. Thus, The Hangar strongly resembles the wing of a large aircraft with metal-cladding on the roof. Another stipulation was that the centre be

built primarily out of lumber to support the local wood industry. Panels made from cross-laminated timber used in the construction of The Hangar were manufactured by a Penticton company. From the university’s perspective, it was also important that the new facility be architecturally attractive. With large windows dominating the exterior, coupled with predominantly wood construction, UBC Okanagan athletics director Rob Johnson said those expectations are being realized. “Because this is key part of the route and the terminus for convocation each year, it was important for the institution that this be a very beautiful facility,” Johnson said.

“The glass and wood construction really accomplishes that.” With the official planned opening of The Hangar next fall, Johnson said a significant and long-overdue need on the UBC Okanagan campus will finally be filled. Because the current fitness room is located in the gymnasium—where finals exams are conducted—students have been missing out on fitness opportunities at the most critical times of the year, he said. “Because we write exams twice a year when people are the most stressed and need activity to relieve that stress, you can’t get in because the gym is in use.

Facts about The Hangar Dimensions: 8,800 square feet (5,300 upper, 3,500 lower) Upper level: Resistance equipment, cardio equipment, free weights. Lower level: Studio space (three rooms) to accommodate activities such as yoga, zumba and spin classes Primary construction materials: Cross-laminated timber (CLT) and glass Opening: Late May or early June, with official opening in September 2013 Open to: UBC Okanagan students, staff and general public Total cost: Estimated $4.1 million, plus fitness equipment Donors of $3.5 million: Barry Lapointe (Kelowna Flightcraft), Mary Jo Schnepf and family

Some risk of flooding indicated by snowpack levels Judie Steeves STAFF REPORTER

Despite lower amounts of winter snow

on the west side of Okanagan Lake than on the east side, overall there is more snow in the hills around the Okanagan than

normal for this time of year. That means there’s a moderate risk of some flooding this spring.

However, the deeper snow bodes well for water managers concerned about storing enough water in reservoirs for use

by valley residents during the dry summer months. David Campbell, section head for the province’s River Forecast Cen-

NATURAL FACTS

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

tre, says typically by the beginning of March, 80 per cent of the winter season’s accumulation of snow has already fallen, so there’s a good indication of the amount of inflow Okanagan Lake will receive during snowmelt. And, the lake is the largest water storage reservoir in the valley. He doesn’t anticipate snow at medium to high elevations around the valley will begin to melt for another few weeks, but he says there is 15 per cent more snow than normal, on average, around the Okanagan. While the automatic snow pillow measuring station in the Brenda Mine area on the west side of the lake reports less than normal (72 per cent of normal) and less snow than last year at this time, the nearby higher-elevation Whiterocks Mountain is at 98 per cent of normal. Across the lake, the Mission Creek station reports snow levels 13 per cent more than normal, and it provides the largest single inflow of meltwater in the valley. Campbell noted that there have also been a couple of storms since the March 1 measurement.

Restore it to its original beauty! Call...

Ken Cunningham, regional manager for resource management for the natural resource operations ministry, said there seems to have been a rainshadow effect on the valley’s western slopes in recent years, yet those reservoirs have filled without a problem. Last year, a delayed snow melt and additional late-season snow accumulations at higher elevations, combined with steady rain in the valley, “created all sorts of problems,” he said. However, without the other factors there’s no reason to forecast flooding again this year, he feels. Even if there is adequate snowpack accumulations over the winter months, and reservoirs fill with stored water for irrigation and domestic use around the valley, he warns there can still be a dry, hot summer and it’s all gone before summer is finished. So, it’s important that people conserve water throughout the year, in order that there’s enough left to carry us through the dry season when water use is also at its highest, he added. The level of Okanagan Lake is close to the target for this time of year, and more water is being released downstream than last year at this time, he said, to make room for a higher snowpack. The RFC reports that there is some indication of an increased likelihood of wetter and cooler weather over the remainder of the snow accumulation season, with a moderate increase in seasonal flood risk in the Okanagan. jsteeves@kelownacapnews.com

Have you been told that you need to have your knees replaced? Are you reluctant to get surgery but you don’t know what else to do? Being cautious is always a good approach, especially with your health. If you want alternatives to knee surgery, I can help.

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.

Kelowna pesticide notification registry deadline today The deadline is today for Kelowna residents to register with the city’s pesticide notification registry. The registry is for city residential property owners, who want to be notified about the spraying of pesticide on abutting property. The city encourages residents to register online at kelowna.ca/environment, providing their name, street address, postal code, phone number, email address, preference for same-day or day-before notification and reasons for registering. Alternately, residents can register by calling the commercial pesti-

cide notification registry hotline at 250-469-8556, faxing 250-862-3314 or mailing applications to the City of Kelowna development services department at 1435 Water Street, Kelowna, B.C., V1Y 1J4. Meanwhile, this year marks the fifth year of the city’s pesticide use regulation bylaw and its pesticide free education campaign. “The pesticide free campaign helps residents make healthier yard maintenance choices,” said Althea Livingston, marketing and communications coordinator with the city.  “The education campaign is designed to assist with the implementa-

tion of our pesticide bylaw that regulates the use of cosmetic, non-essential pesticides on residential properties. The bylaw came into effect on Jan.1, 2009.” The city will host four, free workshops April 27, May 25, June 12 and Sept. 18 to ensure that information is provided directly to residents. The City’s website, kelowna.ca/environment also features a number of different information brochures and fact sheets, answers to some frequently asked questions, plus helpful external links. Topics covered include managing pests, weeds, aphids, powdery

mildew and fruit pests in residential yards. Another pamphlet explains how to read a pesticide label and determine which less toxic pesticides are permitted under the bylaw. A pesticide expert is also available to answer questions from residents who are dealing with a pest or weed problem and need advice. Residents can email pesticidefree@ kelowna.ca or leave a voicemail on the pesticide free hotline at 250-4698881.

Council considered the application for a text amendment to OCP designations in the current Hiawatha Park area, which include expanding Mixed Use Tourism and Multiple Unit Residential – Medium Density 2 designations, adding Multiple Unit Residential – High Density designation, and removing the Multiple Unit Residential – Low Density designated area. The OCP amendment is for both future land use designation boundary changes in addition to a building height amendment to 11 stories proposed. This would be facilitated by the corresponding CD24 zone that is proposed for the comprehensive site planning of the parcel.

Council received information from staff about transit ridership by route.

UBCO athletes and students to see benefits from new training centre Fitness from A3 “It has to be silent because people are writing exams. This is going to be so much better in that people can exercise when they really need to, as well as when they want to.” Johnson said the rapid growth in the student population over the last several years—from 3,500 in 2005 to 8,300 today—was yet another compelling case for the addition of a new facility. The fact that the current fitness area is now lo-

cated in what was once a storage room simply accentuated the desperate need for added fitness and wellness space on campus. “Even when we were (Okanagan University College) with 3,000 students, it wasn’t adequate back then,” he said. “Now with more than 8,300 students and 1,700 residents you just can’t use converted storage space. “Part of our attraction as UBC Okanagan is a small-campus size with a big-campus opportunity,” added Johnson.

“It was very difficult for us with a straight face to promote recreation and fitness with the facility that we had…very important for us in attracting and retaining students and staff. “The Hangar will finally give us that ability to show them a worldclass, first-class facility, added Johnson, “brand new equipment and great opportunities for individual fitness.” UBCO recreation coordinator Layne McDougall counts herself among those on campus who are most excited with the impending opening of the Hangar. In addition to an increased overall fitness level at the university, McDougall expects to see a whole new cross-section of students, staff and general public make use of

the new centre. “Having a user-friendly, everybody-welcome fitness centre is really going to be a great step towards expanding our fitness programs, expanding our personal training services as well as having more appropriate space for the average users,” said McDougall. “What we have on one end of the spectrum is no natural light, no free flowing air, an intimidating atmosphere dominated mostly by males. “I want an average first-year female, for instance, to walk in and feel welcome at a holistic-wellness facility rather than a weight room. “We work everyday to promote a healthy campus that will help escalate that.” Although UBC Okanagan’s varsity teams

However, when the Hangar is complete, the original fitness centre will be primarily used by Heat teams, without having to compete for space with the general student population. UBCO men’s basketball player Yassine Ghomari expects the added room, time and freedom to benefit all varsity sports. “Now that the (current fitness room) is going to be mostly for varsity athletes and heavy lifting, there won’t be anything to hinder our workouts,” said Ghomari. “At the same time, we’ll have the upstairs to do other workouts, so it will help a lot.

said Rowe, who manages Rowe Strength and Conditioning. “In turn we hope that will mean better results on the floor. Of course, the athletes still have to perform, but they’ll at least have the tools to be better prepared.” Still, as well-supported and important as sports are on campus, Rob Johnson said the purpose of the new building is about much more than athletics. To Johnson, The Hangar will represent the long-term physical, spiritual and social well-being of students and staff on the UBCO campus. “It’s going to be a big part of the student experience and student life,” said Johnson. “The whole idea of a university is mind, body and spirit—the mind part has been thoroughly looked after.

Second phase of Rails With Trails multi-use pathway gets green light ASSISTANT EDITOR

Kelowna’s Rails With Trails project is back on track. After waiting five years to continue the work started with the first phase of the project from Gordon Drive to Spall Road in 2008, Kelowna is finally getting the provincial money it needs to help build phase two of the multi-use pathway. A news conference is planned today in Kelowna with the three local MLAs, the area’s MP and Kelowna’s mayor to announce provincial money for the project from the B.C. Ministry of Transportation’s Bike B.C. fund. Money the city already knew it was getting from the federal government’s gas tax revenues is likely to also be re-announced as part of the funding. In its 2013 budget, the city set aside $1.5 million for the work in anticipation of the federal money. While city representatives would not discuss details of today’s announcement prior to the event, it is expected that the total provincial-federal share will be around $3 million. City officials said they were delighted the province is now on board.

To the editor: Re: Control Tower Assessment Appeal in Kelowna Could Hurt, March 12 Capital News. As a person with very extensive expertise in [property] assessment and assessment appeals, it is clear to me this decision is clearly flawed. I have read the decision of the Property Assessment Appeal Board and it would seem to me the appeal board was not incorrect, rather the assessment authority failed to properly defend their assessment. The board was thus left with no option than to rule based on the best evidence put forward to them. It is clear to me that Nav Canada is looking to obtain a Stated Case from the Supreme Court. A Stated Case would force the assessment authority to then value all airports on the same formula and Nav Canada would not need to appeal any other of

Strategy for targeting ethnic vote is nothing new T

he B.C. legislature session ends this week. It can’t come quickly enough for Premier Christy Clark and the B.C. Liberals. This is also the week we see the rest of the fallout from “ethnic-gate,” as the latest controversy over partisan activity by political staff has been clumsily labelled. A disgruntled former B.C. Liberal caucus staffer handed the NDP opposition an internal memo setting out a strategy for ethnic “outreach” that strayed into forbidden territory, suggesting that ethnic-friendly government events could be staged and participants’ names collected and turned over to the party.

“This secret plan clearly demonstrates the Liberals are deliberately folding government resources and staff into their party’s campaign machinery, despite rules Tom that forbid this,” thunFletcher dered NDP house leader John Horgan. “We’ve seen this before, with the Liberals’ efforts to run a secret committee to subvert the public process around Burnaby Hospital, and in the attack website created by caucus staff and launched by the Liberal party.” Casual observers might see this as a disturbing new development in misuse of public resources. It’s disturbing, all right, but it’s hardly new. The “attack website” Horgan refers to is a case in point. While a web-

VICTORIA VIEWS

site targeting NDP leader Adrian Dix was being cooked up in the B.C. Liberal bunker, a similar effort was being developed in NDP research down the hall. This partisan message detailed all the worthwhile things that could be done with the government’s $15 million advertising budget singing the praises of the government’s “jobs plan.” But this one carried the logo of the NDP caucus, so it was within the rules. The average person, seeing two groups of staff on the public payroll, each slagging the other, might not detect much of a difference. The biggest headline from the leaked memo was its reference to generating “quick wins” for the election campaign by staging apologies for historic racial injustices. It mentioned how former premier Gordon Campbell delivered a solemn apology in 2008 for

the decision to turn away a ship carrying Sikh refugees from Vancouver harbour – shortly after the outbreak of the First World War. What does a modern provincial premier accomplish by apologizing for a federal immigration decision made in 1915? Why would another premier now feel the need to apologize for a federal “head tax” imposed on Chinese immigrants from 1885 to 1923? The answer is obvious. Again, don’t expect much to change with an NDP government. Asked last week if he would stage an apology for the head tax, Dix delivered a well-rehearsed history lesson that made it clear he is anxious to do so. Welcome to politics in an urbanized, globalized media culture. It’s

LETTERS

Scientists: Admit to creative intelligence Open letter to Sir David Attenborough: Your documentaries are awe-inspiring. But your recent statement that: “We are a plague on the Earth” is really alarming. I have read with amusement and sadness, that there are still some self-righteous people who want you to burn in hell, for being an agnostic and not giving God credit for his creation. I understand your doubts and reasoning that, a loving benevolent God couldn’t possibly create a worm in Africa that can only live by burrowing through a child’s eyeball, etc. But the belief in a loving-benevolent God is a man-made concept and had to lead to disappointment and rejection of such an assumption.      For Darwin it must

have been a courageous step, from the comfort of Biblical creation to suggest evolution. Had he lived longer, or today, he might have proposed ‘creavolution,’ as it describes adequately what Richard Dawkins said: “natural selection is a cumulative process” and: “Darwin teaches us to seek out graded ramps of slowly increasing complexity, as flowers use a bribe of food, like nectar.” Does this not suggest that there is an inherent creative power, in all organisms which select, seek, bribe and appear when planetary condition are right? This is something that will never be found under a microscope, or in a billion dollar experiment, as it is intangible and invisible like the you and I, and the source

of everything. If all atomic stuff were removed from our body, there would be nothing left of us to look at. The president of the American Atheists, David Silverman, said that Attenborough’s revelation of being an agnostic, “does not damage the atheist community,” and agrees with Dawkins that physical evidence of God is the necessary catalyst. “Now if God shows himself to me, just as if Santa Claus shows himself to me, I won’t be an atheist.” And Dawkins wrote: “If he existed and chose to reveal it, God himself could clinch the argument noisily and unequivocally in his favour.” How can anybody take these two people seriously, with their juvenile arguments?

Have you ever thought what inferior physical creatures we humans are, compared to the animals, some of which have—in addition to their five senses—ultrasound, heat-seeking, magnetic star and sun navigation abilities, and who knows what other senses? The only thing we have ahead of the animals is a slightly bigger brain, which, sadly, is primarily used for money making and deception, at our peril. Well, 10,000 scientists are the exception, as some have spent four decades in trying to figure out how the universe had its beginning, with the Big Bang, through experiments at the Hadron Collider in CERN. In 2012 there was big excitement with the apparent discovery of the Higgs boson, or God par-

Act). In other words these “contributions are simply another tax owed by taxpayers. Yes, there is an Employment Insurance Operating Account, and a Canada Pension Plan Account, but all ‘contributions’ are paid directly into the Consolidated Revenue Fund (see section 108.(2) of the CPP Act and section 72 of the EI Act) and any benefits to be paid under these Acts are charged against these two accounts. There is no money in either the Employment Insurance Operating Account or the Canada Pension Plan Account as they are not trust accounts for taxpayer contributions and benefit payments. Even the courts agree whereby in Mintzer

their properties. The role of the assessment authority is to provide an “equitable” Assessment Roll, meaning that all airports would then have to as-

more important to put on a show than to do the right thing. Hospitals are announced three times before they’re built, then anenounced again when they are staffed. Politics is a lucrative career. Former B.C. Liberal MLA Lorne Mayencourt is one of the additional “outreach” staff hand-picked by Clark. The B.C. Liberals retort that the NDP cau-

cus has a similar staffer named Gabriel Yiu, who has taken three leaves of absence to run for MLA, and is in practical terms a professional NDP candidate. Yiu is running for a fourth time in Vancouver-Fraserview, having been defeated in 2009 by former West Vancouver police chief Kash Heed. That campaign was notorious for anonymous Chinese-language pamphlets claiming the

250-860-2356

v. Her Majesty the Queen [1996] 2 F.C. 146, the federal court stated at paragraph 2: “This statute (and the EI Act as well) manifests no intention to create a trust either in respect of contributions or benefits.” And because these monies are “debts due to Her Majesty,” i.e. taxes, and not monies held in trust for taxpayers, it is not your money, and they can do with it whatever they wish. That is why the government could “steal” $55 billion a few years ago and use it for some other purpose. Grant Baudais, Kelowna

Gateway Program offers hope for at-risk students Wade Paterson STAFF REPORTER

Before last November, Dylan Lewis and Kylie Graf didn’t feel like they had much of a future. Lewis said he expected he would take life one day at a time, “maybe flipping burgers or something,” without long-term plans. Graf spent most of her day sitting around, watching daytime television, with little hope or ambition. That changed thanks to the Gateway Program offered by Okanagan College for students from School District 23’s Central Programs and Services. “Most of the kids who go to the school have abuse issues or home issues, some of them are living on the street—it’s

sort of the bottom end of the school training system,” said John Haller, dean of trades and apprenticeship at Okanagan College. Randy Horne, administrator at Central Programs and Services, said the students are “honest and real” but have struggled in school for various reasons. “They come to us because maybe they’ve struggled academically with the pace of a traditional school,” said Horne. He added several students deal with substance abuse and mental health issues such as anxiety and depression. “It’s a real variety of reasons why they’re at Central, typically they need a slower pace and more support.” Through the Gateway Program, select students get hands-on experience at the college’s trades facility. “We give them a sampler course. Basically it’s a three-month program where they get to sample 10 to 12 different trades with a hope that they’ll

find an interest in one of them and start pursuing an education or go out and get a job in one of them, then come back as an apprentice,” said Haller. The Okanagan College Gateway Program has been offered to Central Programs and Services students for two years and there are plans to continue with the opportunity next fall. “It was awesome, it gave me a lot of insight on what I wanted to do— now I’m doing it,” said Lewis. Potential students are chosen through a screening process. This year’s program began with 17 students: Fourteen of those students graduated and 13 have entered foundation programs at Okanagan College. Horne said the Gateway Program has provided Central students with “an avenue to rebuild their confidence.” Both Lewis and Graf have enrolled in the RV Service Technician foundation program. “I wanted to be an electrician, but my math skills weren’t good

This course has electrical, plumbing—it’s cool because it has everything, like 14 different trades,” said Graf. In the Gateway Program’s first year, 15 of 16 students graduated and most chose to pursue a pre-apprentice program at the college. “They get a practical side. The students haven’t done well in the K-12 system because most of it is academic,” said Haller. “Our training is handson trades training. Certainly there is some theoretical training as well, but there’s a practical application to all that theory training. “What you learn in the morning is something you’ll actually get to do

Haller said he’s gotten goosebumps from some of the stories he’s heard at Gateway Program graduations. “We get comments like, ‘I would probably be dead if you guys hadn’t gotten me into this program.’ Or, ‘This got me off drugs.’ It’s that dramatic.” Nancy Ankerstein, program administrator of trades and apprenticeship, said she’s proud of the students who have had success through the Gateway Program. “It means their life,” said Ankerstein. “When you look at the backgrounds, some of the barriers that exist for them, there are a lot of times— from a monetary point of view—they would never be able to come into a program like this. “It’s afforded these students an opportunity that they probably would never have been able to get.” Okanagan College has also offered Gateway Programs to women and aboriginal students. “We have some of the highest success rates of any institution in Canada for converting women into trades programs,” said Haller. He added the goal is to add the Gateway Program opportunity to every high school in the region. “We just think it helps the students with making choices.” Lewis and Graf repeatedly expressed their gratitude for being given a unique opportunity. “Gateway changed my life,” said Graf. “This has given me a future,” said Lewis. wpaterson@kelownacapnews.com

Backflips for Ballet Kelowna resurgence STAFF REPORTER

If tonight’s Ballet Kelowna season finalé sells out, founding artistic director David LaHay will be thankful Bernard Avenue is under construction, leaving only half the territory to conquer. “David LaHay has always said, ‘The day we finally sell out the Kelowna Community Theatre I’ll do cartwheels down Bernard Avenue,’” said Alison Moore, who retired from her role as executive director of the company last year. With a new board of directors in place, and only 79 tickets of the 853 available for what was being billed as Ballet Kelowna’s final performance, there’s a good chance those cartwheels might have to be backflips as an emotional group of patrons, supporters, dancers and administrators jump for joy at the possibility the ballet company can be saved. Since word of its impending demise hit the media, membership has doubled and the company has sold 774 tickets, the closest it has ever come to a sold out show in its home theatre. This should prove critical when the six board members—three from the existing board, including past president Birgit Bennett, treasurer Ingrid Hansel and legal counsel Aaron Dow—and three new board members, move forward and start applying for grants. “Kelowna Ballet Society is eligible to apply for gaming (grants) and they look to the support of the community when those decisions are made,” said Moore, noting the outpouring of grassroots support should prove critical. Wednesday evening, after delineating four years worth of financial history, line by line, and agreeing to publish the financials on the company’s website, the board who decided the company could not go on, stepped down. A backbone of core volunteers, Moore among them, will now act as counsel and resource to this new board of directors as it reconstructs the company. And Moore believes, economic woes or not,

that the company can move forward. “Everything that Ballet Kelowna has done has been moved by the passion and vision that David LaHay instilled in his company,” she explained. “…The board’s job is to govern and this board was staying in their head and just looking at facts and figures in a situation where they were fatigued and had lost sight of the vision. “This clash between the head and the heart is what we’ve seen in this drama that has unfolded in our community,” she added. “But people crave the heart and the soul.” Putting a little soul back in the dancer’s steps will be new directors Deborah Ward, a 30-year veteran from the highland dance community; Joan Wilson, a staunch advocate for the troupe who volunteered so much she eventually became the company’s tour director; and Carley Bailey, coowner of the Canadian School of Ballet. Comments made Wednesday evening indicate, under their direction, it is likely the block-buster fundraising galas, like Pirouette, the company’s signature fundraiser, will be set aside in favour of less grandiose endeavours. “It was learned, when asked why the decision (to close the doors) was made so precipitously, there were a lot of expenses for the upcoming gala Pirouette, and the board, seeing that at-

president Jamie Maw told the Capital News earlier this week, some $8,000 to $15,000 will be waiting in a fund for this new group to begin its work. Meantime, Ballet Kelowna is frantically trying to make the final leap possible to a sold out show. Tickets can be purchased online at BalletKelowna.ca, by phone 250862-2867 or through the Actors Studio Box Office at 1379 Ellis St. in downtown Kelowna.

generated by the public response to Ballet Kelowna’s financial woes has given hope that the dance company will be able to carry on. tendance was dropping at other events, was concerned,” said Moore. “These large benefits that, frankly, have a stranglehold on lots of charities because they see these as a means to augment their funding, have been nearly fatal for Ballet Kelowna.” Moore believes all arts organizations should take this as a serious lesson to never let the fundraising dictate the vision or mission. And on that note, she says the artistic director, who has been criticized for not making the program populist enough, should actually be commended for providing the absolute best quality art— classical and contempor-

ary—available. She has found the last month and a half extremely difficult to watch, having moved here from Colorado to help build the company. “When you work very hard for an organization and you share the passion of the artistic director and you believe deeply in the mission, it’s hard to see it jeopardized in this way,” she said. Once the board publishes a picture of the financial possibilities moving forward from its point of view, there is hope more donations will start to flow.

several illegal sheds, old boathouses and a variety of boats, chairs and other structures on a stretch of public land known as the greenspace. The long-standing issue, which is related to the removal of several illegal docks in past years, has some residents up in arms about a lack of public consultation while others are happy to have private structures removed from a public beach. It’s been a controversial issue that has pitted residents in the small Lake Country ward of Okanagan Centre on different sides of what has become a hot button topic. “I can’t believe how cleaning up the beach has become so fraught with anger,” said Coun.

DISTRICT OF Lake Country staff remove an old structure from the public beach in Okanagan Centre this week. Okanagan Centre. “We are trying to treat the Okanagan Centre beach like any other park in Lake Country. “In any other park staff removes private property without even consulting council.” But some residents who live in Okanagan Centre are not happy the district has gone ahead with its plan. Resident Blair Ireland says there are many opposed to the clean-up and they simply wanted a public meeting to discuss the issue. “We want consultation, we want a public meeting, we were always promised we would

get our say in what is removed or not,” said Ireland. “We know the beach needed to be cleaned up and we know there are derelict structures. “But we wanted a proper meeting to have some say in how our community goes forward.” Ireland says many in the small community are upset with the clean-up and the way it has been pushed through. But Cameron says the community has been consulted in the past and the issue has been ignored by Lake Country council for several years. “There has been so much consultation on this

that somehow it is OK for them to break our bylaws. “Just because we don’t agree with them doesn’t mean we aren’t listening.” Cameron says the issue of the clean-up of the Okanagan Centre greenspace was a key platform in her running for council as she maintains she has lots of support in Okanagan Centre. “I wouldn’t have undertaken this if I didn’t think the majority of Okanagan centre residents wanted this,” she said. Resident Larry Fallis, who lives two blocks away from the beach, said he supports the clean-up. “In using the beach we found there was more and more stuff showing up,” said Fallis. “They are basically calling garbage a heritage site. There are old sheds with broken glass in them and people put their chairs inside. “I think the clean-up is great. (People) are establishing rights that they don’t have on public land.” Some of the structures will be looked at by the heritage committee in Lake Country to see if there is historical value, but in the meantime, most of the structures have been removed. kparnell@kelownacapnews.com

Kelowna business owners frustrated by downtown break-in STAFF REPORTER

Two Bernard Avenue business owners are having second thoughts about relocating downtown after several computers were taken from their web design and Internet marketing business last weekend. Chris Onyett and Ulf Lonegren, directors and founders of Roketto— formerly Saelstrom Marketing—discovered their downtown office had been broken into Monday. Two 27-inch iMac computers, one 24-inch iMac computer and a Dell Inspiron notebook—worth more than $8,000—were stolen from the business.

Roketto is currently operating out of a temporary workspace. Renovations are being done to the permanent office, which is located down the hall in the same building. Because Lonegren and Onyett are not expecting to be in their current office very long, the business owners had not invested in a security system and didn’t have insurance for the makeshift office. Roketto was previously located in Glenmore. Last weekend’s incident has left Onyett and Lonegren reconsidering their decision to move their business downtown. “We were questioning whether we want to

go through with the space we’ve been waiting for,” said Onyett. He added the breakin left him and Lonegren feeling violated. “We’re on those computers 10 hours a day, there was some personal information.” The duo will likely still go through with their plans to work downtown, but they’ve already begun pricing out alarm systems and security cameras to prevent a similar act from happening in the future. “Downtown, in any city, there’s going to be that kind of risk…we just need to have the proper security in place.” Although Onyett and Lonegren aren’t making

cated one of the missing computers, along with a bike and a briefcase full of crack pipes and syringes. Lonegren said the in-

cident has inconveniently forced the two-man operation to spend time replacing equipment instead of getting work done for

customers. “We can’t just halt business, we’ve got to keep moving…we’re at a busy time,” he said.

robably the biggest plus of travelling to another country is that it provides you with a clearer perspective on your own community. I don’t mean just cactus versus Douglas firs or sun vs. cloud, but also apathy vs. commitment and involvement—you notice all the wonderful people here at home who make this commun-

ity hum. My inbox was stuffed full of weeks of information about what you’re all doing to conserve our natural environment and the wildlife that call it home; to encourage young people to learn about the wild spaces of the Okanagan; and to educate people about it. Volunteers are generally quiet as they go about their work behind the scenes, but without their efforts, this valley would be an entirely different place. Not only do they organize events to raise See Trail Mix A19

what you see when you return home. A local hiker here compares a young saguaro cactus with local Douglas fir trees, both of which can grow very tall.

ers about how Okanagan wild sheep herds are managing; relocation programs; how to tell the age of an animal by its horns; hunting, skinning and caping the animals; backpacking and special gear and the business of the association. Recent society projects include wild sheep

counts in several areas, helping to fund sheep transplants and habitat enhancement. Last weekend, a group of volunteers from the Oceola club organized a youth ice fishing event at Beaver Lake Resort to get local young people connected to the outdoors in winter.

Volunteer Danny Coyne reports that club members showed youngsters the basics of ice fishing, and most landed a fish, with much excitement. Coyne says they also enjoyed lunch and games and learned much about teamwork and being a sportsmen, with lots of

funds for habitat conservation, as groups like the Oceola Fish and Game Club and the Peachland Sportsman’s Association have in the past month or so. They also get out on the ground and pull invasive weeds, clean up in and around water bodies, restore damaged and altered habitat so it can again sustain fish and wildlife; and organize events where people can learn about our natural environment and its fish and wildlife resources. It’s really pretty impressive. There’s even a group meeting to ensure that young people in this community don’t suffer Nature Deficit Disorder from a lack of interaction with the wild.

As our cities grow, our natural areas are diminished, and so do our opportunities for young people to get outside and experience the call of the loon and the woodpecker, the smell of pine resin and sagebrush, the taste of wild berries and herbs, the sight of water rushing over smooth stones or lapping the lakeshore and fields of wildflowers or wildlife. So, congratulations and thanks to those involved in fund-raising, including those who attend and offer up their cash to a good cause as well as those who donate goods to help raise money, including at this weekend’s 20th annual general meeting of the Wild Sheep Society of B.C. being held at the Delta Grand.

NEWS ▼ PROVINCIAL POLITICS

Current leader crop has little appeal to voters W ith a provincial political election on the horizon, one should not be shocked or dismayed to learn that the ‘leader’ of the tattered B.C Liberal Party, Premier Christy Clark, is visiting K-Town next week. An indication, perchance, that the anointed one recognizes that not everything is lovely in lotus land. Of the three current reigning MLAs in the Kelowna ridings, the only one who may be sitting somewhat comfortable at this point in the parade is Steve Thomson (Kelowna-Mission). The other two local MLAs, Ben Stewart (Westside-Kelowna) and Norm Letnick Kelowna-Lake Country), have reasonable cause for concern. Unless one has been asleep or hiding under a large rock, it’s no secret the provincial Liberals have done a long and ugly leap on to their proverbial flag poles and the political impalement has not been pretty. However, the current scenario is far from a new view for B.C. voters. We have seen this sordid dance numerous times over the past 60 years or so when one apparently promising political party hacks and slashes its way to the top of the public popularity charts largely based on the stumble-bum, shoot themselves in the foot antics of their opponents. Victory through apathy. Quite clearly, neither the NDP or the Conservatives will win the next election – the Liberals are simply going to lose. ‘Only in B.C.,’ multiple media members have mockingly mentioned for what seems a millennia Yet, as boggling as the cycle of ineptitude of the party in charge has been in B.C. politics, even more staggeringly strange has been the trend of short-term planning and visioning by every other political group in the province. For at least half a century now, one provincial party after the other has failed to show any long-term vision or planning within their own party. Petty party ‘leaders’ have not had either the brains to actually plan a successor in advance of their own demise. One can only surmise such lack of forethought is simply a protectionist or insecure decision (or lack of decision). Almost every election, when a party is either in danger of losing their lofty tower or attempting to scale it, a last minute panic attack takes place to find a suitable ‘leader.’ That disastrous lack of planning used

to be a trademark of the NDP party, however, the past decade or two it has become epidemic in all parties. This election is the perfect poster child of that situation. Not one of the three major parties has a leader worth their own weight

in salt. Clark inherited her captaincy in a mutiny of sorts, and both the NDP and Conservative leaders have dubious track records and about as much charisma as an egg-salad sandwich. Not one of the three is truly a leader nor the sort of strong person that captures the imagination of voters. The term leader is an interesting subject all unto itself. It conjures a variety of definitions and interpretations depending upon whose perspective and in what capacity the term is used. For instance, a spiritual leader can be both very different and yet eerily similar to a military leader. Whenever I hear the term leader, the first line that pops in my head is one dear old dad use to pontificate on a regular basis in reference to his WWII days: “When it comes to leadership its simple – lead, follow, or get the hell out of the way.” Perhaps that’s a mantra all our political parties should be forced to adopt. For many Canadians, and certainly for B.C. residents, whenever there has appeared to not be a clear or outstandingly trustworthy party to vote for during an election-voters decide to look to the leader and not the party for a decision on where to place their X. In the current provincial tag-team match voters are once again left with little to choose from—even with that consolation round option. Such a ‘noneof-the-above’ result leaves voters two possible actions: Go to option three and choose ‘the best’ candidate running in their particular riding—or not vote at all. Sadly, the latter has won out far too often in the last several elections. Fortunately, in the three ridings around Kelowna area, we do have some interesting characters to choose from in the upcoming battle royal. I am confident the majority of them will be rolling out their election campaigns full strength in the next few weeks. Let the rhetoric begin and may a potential reason to vote raise his or her head. In my column next week: Defining leadership – what’s it really all about?

FROM THE GROUND UP

Don Burnett ferences become a lot more evident. When a person such as myself grows up and works in the plant business here in the Okanagan, an experience such as I had a few weeks ago in Mexico is eye-opening. While there I met a man who grew up in southern Florida and spent his working years as a colonel in the U.S. Army. After retiring from active service, Tommy and his wife Patti moved to Mexico where they began developing a large garden consisting of many tropical plants but mainly palms. I had the privilege of a private showing of the gardens, an experience this old gardener will never forget. Tommy had collected palms from all over the world but mainly from the Middle East and Madagascar in Africa. Other types of plants

in the garden included aloe vera, caladium, orchids, desert rose, and agave. As much as I was interested in all there was to see, I was just as excited about showing my new friends pictures of gardens and native plants we have here in Canada. Tommy and Patti are going to make a trip north possibly late this summer and I will show them around. I am so pumped to show off our plants in person to someone who has only experienced gardening in the tropics. Even though we are at either end of the spectrum, the passion we both have for this wonderful activity is contagious. I know that something as common as our Ponderosa pine, would be truly exotic to Tommy and Patti. Isn’t the diversity of plants in this world of ours so fabulous? Just when I get a little complacent, I discover a new plant or family of plants and my enthusiasm fires right back up.

winter temperature than only a few miles up the west side of the lake at Traders Cove. Even in our own properties, whether they are an acreage or a small city lot, there can be different growing conditions presented. Shady areas need to be managed quite differently than sunny spots and areas protected from the wind are different than those that are exposed. So given that these microclimates are evident right here in the Okanagan, it stands to reason the growing conditions say at the coast or up north in Prince George or just over the mountains in Alberta can be very different. Although gardening in Vancouver verses gardening here in the Okanagan have certain parallels—i.e. you can grow tomato plants in both areas—the methods, planting schedules and results can vary tremendously. During my lifetime, I have been able to experience gardening in many zones from the frost free climate of Mexico, Florida and Bermuda to colder zones such as Edmonton. This is when the dif-

Warriors prime for playoffs The West Kelowna Warriors head into the B.C. Hockey League playoffs this weekend playing what might be their best hockey of the season. The Warriors have won four straight games, including three on a Coastal Conference road trip last weekend that saw them pass Merritt for second place in the BCHL Interior Division, earning the Warriors home ice advantage in the first round playoff series between the two teams. West Kelowna and Merritt meet tonight (Friday) and Saturday night at Royal LePage Place, beginning a best-of-seven playoff series between the two teams. “We’ve had a great finish and and I think the team has picked up some

confidence down the stretch and since the trade deadline,” said Warriors captain Max French. “Our last road trip was a good character road trip. We won three times and we had to battle from behind in those games. Those are the types of wins we are going to need in the playoffs.” The Warriors (30-134-9) handled the Centennials (31-17-3-5) quite easily in the season series between the two teams, winning six games and tying another. However French said they are a hard-working team that is tough to play against, especially in their own building. “We’ve had a really good record against them,” he said. “We had some success but playoffs is a different ball game.

Lucas Bloodoff ALEX HILL/CONTRIBUTED

WEST KELOWNA Warriors captain Max French and the rest of the Warriors begin the BCHL playoffs at home tonight against the Merritt Centennials. They work hard, they get pucks to the net and they crash and bang. But if we play the way we have all year I think we can have success.” The Warriors finished the season three points ahead of Merritt, earning them the home ice advantage in the series. French says starting at home is important.

“It was huge to pass them,” he said. “Anytime you can play at home is huge. Especially going into Merritt. It’s a smaller rink and a tough place to play. There is no doubt in our minds that we have the talent and the work ethic. We just have to keep working hard and things will go our way. After the first two

games of the series this weekend in West Kelowna, the two teams will travel to Merritt for games three and four in the series Monday and Tuesday. Game five, if necessary, will be in West Kelowna on Thursday with game six slated for Merritt next See Warriors A27

Hitmen, he’s been to the Memorial Cup, he’s been named WHL Player of the Week and now, this week, he was named the Canadian Hockey League Player of the Week for the first time. But not since minor hockey had he posted a seven-point game— until the Hitmen forward set a new Calgary franchise record for points in a single game with seven in a 9-5 win over the Saskatoon Blades. It was part of a four-game stretch that saw Sylvester record 12 points in four straight Calgary wins and result in the CHL Player of the Week award. “It just seemed like everything I touched, or my teammates touched, turned to gold,” said Sylvester this week, adding he may have had seven points in minor hockey, but never in a WHL game. “I think the last time that may have happened was in atom or peewee. “It’s a pretty big honour to be recognized,” he said. “There are a lot of great players in the CHL. It’s a good accomplishment but I couldn’t have done it without my team-

mates and especially my linemates.” A two-time WHL Player of the Week this season, Sylvester is having his best year in a five year career with the Hitmen. He’s leading the team in scoring and is 11th in the WHL in scoring with 39 goals and 48 assists and a plus-25 rating on a Hitmen team that sits in third in the WHL Eastern Conference with a 45-20-1-4 mark heading into the final weekend of the WHL season. As a 20-year-old he will complete a five year career this year—all with Calgary—putting special meaning on the playoffs as the free agent rounds out a solid junior career. “It’s my 20-year-old season and through my five years I’ve had some

ups and downs,” he said. “I’ve been to the league final twice and I’ve had the privilege to play in the Memorial Cup but I’ve also been at the other end of things. This year it’s my last kick at the can so I just want to give it my all and end things on a positive.” Calgary’s first round opponent is yet to be determined with a log jam in the WHL Eastern Conference standings. The Hitmen finish out their regular season with a home and home with Kootenay. For Sylvester, having a five year WHL season nearing its end is a surreal feeling. “I still feel like I’m 16, coming into the league for the first time,” he said with a chuckle. “I’m privileged to say that I have stayed on the same team for five years. I’ve enjoyed every minute of it. I came to the Calgary organizition when I was 16 and the coaching staff has taught me so much about the game. I learned a lot from some of the older players during that time and I’ve grown a lot as a player.” B

Rockets remarkable run to WHL BC Division championship As the Kelowna Rockets play the final games of the Western Hockey League season this weekend with a home and home series against Vancouver, it’s fitting to look back on the Rockets season that included a record setting 23 game home winning streak and the Western Hockey League B.C. Division title, secured last week with two big wins over Kamloops. And when the Rockets saluted their fans at Prospera Place on Saturday night, moments after clinching the Western Hockey League’s BC Division championship with a thrilling 2-1 win over Kamloops, it signified the team’s second BC banner in three years. But more than that it was the culmination of a remarkable run to the title that saw the Rockets erase a big Blazers lead atop the division that had a Rockets division title seeming like a distant possibility. In fact when Rockets and Blazers met on Nov. 1st in Kelowna, Kamloops was a full 15 points ahead of Kelowna after a 17-1 start to the WHL season. The 3-0 win by the Rockets on that night at Prospera Place was the team’s first of four wins over the Blazers this season. It was also the third straight win by the Rockets at Prospera Place in a streak that would eventually hit a Kelowna club record 23 straight wins at home. And while many observers were lauding a powerful Kamloops team after the first 20 games of the season, those within the Rockets dressing

room had targetted the BC title. “We had a goal setting session in October with our players and they set a goal of finishing first in our division when we were a lot of points behind Kamloops,” Rockets head coach Ryan Huska said on the weekend. “We kept chipping away and got it done.” The first couple months of the WHL season saw Kamloops and Kelowna off to different starts. The Blazers roared out of the gates, winning 16 of its first 17 games before losing that game on Nov. 1 to Kelowna. The Rockets on the other hand, got off to a much slower start, losing their first three games of the season including both games of a season-opening home and home series with the Blazers. The Rockets were 8-8 through the month of October and had 11 wins in its first 20 games. But by mid-November the team was hitting its stride and beginning a hot streak that would last more than three months. The Rockets won nine of its 11 games in November, losing twice on the road in Tri-City. In December, Kelowna also won nine of 11, winning four of five on a pre-Christmas Alberta road trip and returning from its Christmas break to beat Kamloops 7-3 at Prospera Place on Dec. 27. By the time the calendar turned to 2013, the Rockets had served notice they were for real. They were ranked in the top 10 in the CHL and they had

THE KELOWNA ROCKETS celebrate one of many wins this season, en route to the WHL B.C. Division championship banner. The WHL playoffs start next weekend. caught the Blazers, tying Kamloops for first place on Jan. 7. Of the Rockets 14 games in January, they would lose just one in regulation, a road loss in Vancouver. The Rockets were 13-1-1-0 in January closing out the month

with a 6-5 overtime loss in Kamloops that saw the Blazers erase a two goal deficit in the third period and win in overtime. It wasn’t until the Portland Winterhawks came to Kelowna on Feb. 8 and 9 that the Rockets suffered a letdown as the Hawks

won twice, stopping the Rockets home winning streak at 23, and ending three-plus months of outstanding play that saw the Rockets lose just eight times in 44 games. The Rockets would lose five times in February, losing twice to Port-

land and twice to Kamloops as the team suffered through its first real adversity of the year. But two wins in Victoria to close out the month of February appeared to right the Rockets ship. March opened up with a 3-0 loss in Kamloops

on March 3 and when the Blazers beat Victoria last Tuesday, Kamloops had clawed back to within a point of Kelwona for first in the BC division. But the Rockets beat Victoria 4-3 in a shootout the next night, restoring its three point lead heading into last weekend’s home and home with Kamloops. And the Rockets 3-2 win in Kamloops and 2-1 win at home, clinched the BC divison championship. “This was a weekend that we wanted to show (Kamloops) we could play with them. It puts us in the right mindset moving forward,” Huska said following Saturday’s game. “There was a lot of questions surrounding us, if we could beat the good teams, since our games against Portland. Every team goes through their ups and downs and we’ve got a group that believe in themselves.” The WHL playoffs begin March 22 in Kelowna and the Rockets will enter the playoffs as the Western Conference’s second seed. A first round opponent is still to be determined.

Take fan bus to Merritt games Warriors from A25 Friday. A deciding game seven would be played at Royal LePage Place Sunday March 24. The other first round playoff series in the BCHL Interior pits first place Penticton (35-160-5) against fourth place Salmon Arm (26-24-2-4).

It will be a tough task for the Rockets, who struggled against the Cougars this year, dropping three out of four games and being outscored 2212 in the season series. The Cougars finished second in the BCMML with a 31-8-1 record while the Rockets were just five points back at 27-8-6 “We struggled against

them more than any other team, losing three out of four. We’ll have our hands full,” said Rockets manager David Michaud. Cariboo led the league with 211 goals while Okanagan was fourth with 190. The Cougars feature BCMML second leading scorer Liam Blackburn who had 35 goals and 50 assists this season. “They’re a skilled, dangerous team with four good lines led by Blackburn. But we feel we have four good lines, too. It’s two very offensive teams going head to head. It’s going come down to hard work and who wants to sacrifice more,” said Michaud.

DOUG FARROW/CONTRIBUTED

THE OKANAGAN ROCKETS play the Cariboo Cougars in a best of three BCMML semi final series this weekend in Prince George. The Rockets are led offensively by its top line of Josh Blanchard, Liam Finley and Brett Mennear. Cortlan Procter had four goals in the first round win over Valley West, putting him into a tie with two other players for the play-

off lead in goals scored. The Rockets and Cougars will play Friday (5 p.m.) and Saturday (1 p.m.) at the CN Centre in Prince George with game three if necessary taking place at 10:15 a.m. on Sunday.

The other semi-final series in the BCMML is an all Vancouver matchup as the Vancouver NorthWest Giants (342-4) take on the Greater Vancouver Canadians (22-15-3) at Burnaby Winter Club.

SPRING 2013 EDITION

After its best regular season since entering the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League, the Kelowna Chiefs bowed out of the playoffs with a second round loss to the Osoyoos Coyotes in a tight series that included four overtime games. It marked the end of a season of first for the Chiefs, as the team claimed its first Okanagan Division championship with a 35-15-1-1 record. Still hopes were high that the team would have a long run in the playoffs and general manager Grant Sheridan says it was a tough loss to Osoyoos. “We’re obviously disappointed,” said Sheridan. “We had a great season and it’s an unfortunate way to end it. Looking back there were lots of highs and lots of personal goals for players that were reached.” Sheridan added that it

TOFC teams struggle in West Van Thompson Okanagan Football Club was back in action last weekend as several teams under the TOFC regional banner hit soccer pitches in West Vancouver on the weekend. In general TOFC teams struggled a bit in their first game action against teams from Vancouver which have been playing on their outdoor fields throughout the winter. Here’s a look at each of the games.

UNDER 13 BOYS

The Under-13 boys team earned a 0-0 draw with Mountain Football Club as neither team could find the back of the net. Kelowna keeper Evan Scholes played well, especially during the first half when Mountain had more chances. In the second half TOFC had more attacks on the net. The best chance came on a shot by Mitch Morgan that went

l s

r s y

over the crossbar and a few corners didn’t produce any clear shots on Mountain’s goal resulting in the scoreless tie.

UNDER 14 BOYS

The TOFC U14 Boys were successful in their first match of the regular season beating Mountain 2-0. After a sluggish start and a quick change in formation TOFC found their rhythm and began to pass the ball with greater effect. Kamen Wimbleton (Kelowna) picked up the ball in midfield and played a lofted pass over the heads of the Mountain defense where Connor Glennon (Vernon) chipped the keeper scoring the first of the season. Taitum MacAulay (Vernon) gave a solid performance in the TOFC net and pulled off a brilliant low save to keep the game 0-1 at the end of the first half. In the second half Nic Banmen (Kelow-

na) played a perfectly weighted pass to Connor Glennon (Vernon) who showed good skills to take it around the keeper and score his second of the game and a 2-0 final score.

UNDER 17/18 BOYS

The TOFC U17/18 boys played their first match of the 2013 season at West Vancouver’s Ambleside on Saturday against Mountain FC’s U18 boys. In first fifteen minutes, Mountain held most of the possession and might have scored several times, but a goal line save from fullback Sam Bowers (Lake Country) and two highlight reel saves by keeper Mike Sexton (Kelowna) kept the score 0-0. After Mountain went up 1-0 the TOFC boys pushed back and were rewarded five minutes later. Pressure from Walker Shanks (West Kelowna) and Cole Kingzett (Penticton) created TOFC’s first cor-

ner kick. From the corner cross, striker George Smalldridge (West Kelowna) volleyed the ball hard into the back of the net. But then it was Mountain’s turn to push back, and they scored their second and third goals in the first half and added a fourth in the second half for a 4-1 final.

UNDER 14 GIRLS

TOFC U14 girls put forth a solid effort but fell short of a much wanted win falling 3-01 to Mountain FC. TOFC’s Hailey Tomlin (Kelowna) scored the first goal of the game early in the second half but Mountain replied with three goals late in the game to finish with the win. TOFC fought hard for 50 minutes of soccer but struggled to maintain the intensity through 70 minutes. TOFC teams will play in Coquitlam this weekend against Vancouver Island.

Volunteers are the heart of our community I ‘‘ was born and raised in the Central Okanagan and it remains my home today. Anyone who has lived here will know just what makes it such a special place. We have an amazing, caring community, filled with passionate people working constantly to improve it. Communities are built by the hard work of individuals who donate their time to worthwhile projects—whether it’s coaching a youth hockey team or volunteering at a local emergency shelter. I feel privileged to have known and worked with so many great volunteers. I’ve also tried to give

I am always amazed by the dedication and passion of my fellow volunteers. Their work ethic and spirit of volunteerism is a

model for others, and they deserve our appreciation and support. One of the great pleasures of serving in government is the opportunity to recognize and support volunteers and volunteer-based organizations working in our community. Our government’s Community Gaming Grants program is just one program that provides important financial support to worthwhile local non-profit organizations.

For instance, last month I, along with Steve and Norm, was very happy to visit Martin Avenue Community Centre to present a $225,000 cheque to the Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs.

clubs, environmental groups and social services—programs that are important to our families. It is a pleasure to see the difference these grants can make in supporting the worthwhile programs carried out by volunteers and delivering grassroots programs to meet local needs effectively. Recently, I was asked about my favourite part of being an MLA. For me, the answer is simple—it’s the opportunity to serve our community.

Gendercide ▼ documentary previewed at UBCO campus Film presented as Parliament considers condemning sex-selection abortion.

F t

The UBC Okanagan club FOCUS will feature a powerful film March 21 on the controversial topic of gendercide at the Kelowna campus. The club will be hosting a one-night-only screening of It’s a Girl, a one-hour documentary that explores in depth the systematic elimination of girls in both India and China. The documentary, shot on location, identifies an issue that has quietly decimated the numbers of women by the tens of▼ millions. In fact, the United Nations estimates that as many as 200 million girls and women are “missing” in the world today due to the gendercide. A deeply-rooted preference for boys combined with 32 years of China’s strictly enforced one-child policy is creating a demographic imbalance the world has never before seen. In some parts of India and China, there are more than 130 boys for every 100 girls born every year. The normal ratio is thought to be about 103 boys for every 100 girls. It is now estimated that China has 37 million more males than females. This gender imbalance is causing unforeseen problems such as bride trafficking, wife-sharing, and even sharp increases in rape. FOCUS spokesperson Andrea Kouwenhoven says that gendercide is a relatively unknown phenomenon. “FOCUS is speaking out on behalf of the most vulnerable of all females —unborn and newly born baby girls,” said Kouwenhoven.

Planning meals can help save time, energy and money Alexis Blueschke CONTRIBUTOR

March is Nutrition Month, but really every month is nutrition month. I always look forward to March; it is the time of year that we get our first glimpse of spring. The days start to get a little longer and the wind is almost warm. It’s also the time I begin to contemplate gardening and the delicious things I will plant this year in my attempt to grown my own vegetables. My gardening dreams aside, I find this time of year very busy as I juggle the time demands of work, school, pets, swim lessons and family time.

One of the best things I have done to save myself time, energy and money is plan weekly meals in advance. Ideally a monthly meal plan would be great, but even a week at a time can work wonders. Here’s how I have made meal planning work for me—maybe some of these ideas will work for you too. The first and most important thing I do is brainstorm some meal ideas that I know my family will like. The brainstorming phase can be fun. I ask friends, family and co-workers for their favourite recipes. Once I have col-

lected some great ideas, I go through them and see which ones will work. Sometimes I modify the recipes to suit our tastes, dietary preferences, and needs. Then I look at the week’s activities to see if there are any days that are busier than others. I find it helps to use a crock pot on those days or make larger meals on the weekend in order to reheat leftovers throughout the week. Another great time-saving tip I have discovered is to double up at least two of the recipe ideas each week, preferably those that are family favourites and will freeze well.

CHOIR CONCERT…On Saturday, March 16, the Chorealis Vocal Ensemble will perform its

concert Chorealis sings at Benvoulin Church, 2279 Benvoulin Rd., in Kelowna, 7:30 p.m., and again on March 24 in Vernon, 7 p.m., at All Saints Anglican Church, 3205 27th St. The Chorealis Vocal Ensemble was formed in the spring of 2008. This a cappella SATB group is based and rehearses year round in Vernon with members hailing from Salmon Arm, Armstrong, Lumby, Vernon and Kelowna. Chorealis is comprised of five men and seven women and is unique in that it has no director. Song choices and conducting all come from within the ensemble. Initially Chorealis’ goal was to focus on early music, with composers such as Tallis, Byrd, de Victoria and Palestrina. However, the group has succumbed to the charms of newer music from such diverse composers as Billy Joel, Debussy and Raminsh. Tickets for the Kelowna concert are available at the door for $12. For further information, call 250-762-3406 or visit www.chorealis.ca.

Once I have my top five to seven recipes, its time to write out a grocery list. I start by taking inventory and going through my cupboard, pantry and fridge to see if there are any items on the grocery list that I already have or may need more of. Once my list is complete, I chose a good time for shopping. I’ve learned that for me this means not shopping when hungry. Having a healthy snack before I enter the store helps keep me focused on my list and reduces temptation to buy other food.

Viva Musica takes final bow as new star rises Kelowna SummerTheatre Festival makes it official as auditions attract 60 Western Canadian actors Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

A new name for the new look and Kelowna Summer Theatre Festival is off to the races for a second season they’re hoping will yield stronger returns. The first season proved a smash success with the burgeoning actors employed by the program. At least one, Jacyln Nestman, will return this summer and three times as many auditioned this year from across Western Canada. But the Rotary Arts Centre lawn where the theatre festival is held was only at 25 per cent capacity last summer. “It was a bit disappointing, we were hoping to do better, but it was also encouraging,” said Peter Kascak, board president. “We actually did fairly well (financially); we didn’t lose our shirts. And now we have something to build on.” And they’ve got one big name on board to help the do so. Former mayor Sharon Shepherd will be joining the small society to help bolster the effort as the long-serving group makes the switch from musical theatre to the new outdoor plays. Currenlty named Viva Musica, a very operatic name for a group originally focused on opera, the society will now be called Kelowna Summer Theatre Festival Society, as determined in a vote earlier this week. The society has already made content changes in its double decade

history, first from opera to musical theatre and now it takes on a new smaller production, outdoor format. Staging large musical theatre productions in the Kelowna Community Theatre filled the seats for many years, but in the face of a sluggish economy, the productions were becoming increasingly risky. With this new effort, intended to be similar to the New Vic in London, England and Bard on the Beach in Vancouver, the society is building a fresh start the directors are fairly sure will be popular— though the old name needed to go. “It just makes things a bit clearer from a marketing perspective,” said Kascak. “…We’re starting anew with a new name and a new niche and a new format and it just makes sense.” And they have more cards in addition to Shepherd. Jazz singer Anna Jacyszyn will also be working with the group, performing and likely helping with promotions. The new troupe stages what’s called repertory theatre, providing two different shows for audiences on alternating nights, and it’s a terrific challenge for the young professionals hired into the cast. Artistic direction is handled by Neal Facey, the newly retired Kelowna Secondary School drama teacher who was part of the teaching team who put the school’s arts programs on the map. He selects a musical and a play and he has picked (Title of Show)—

The production is about two struggling playwrights who hear about a new musical theatre festival and decide to submit, though the deadline is looming and they have nothing on paper. For this year’s play, the troupe will be working with Private Eyes, a con-

temporary comedy drama that challenges and tricks its audience. The society has been very successful at securing grants and has seen extensive community support, with sponsorship from places like Wentworth Music (equipment), Grant Thornton, and Hawkeye Holdings (prop storage).

Have you ever wondered where water goes? There is so much discussion these days about water conservation, water shortages and drought, and yet we live within a closed system with no way for water to escape outside of the atmosphere. So where is it all going? To put the question in perspective we need to back up for a moment. For many years we have been making the argument that those of us in the irrigation industry need to be using irrigation water more efficiently. But it is challenging at times to make the business case for reducing water use based solely on lower water bills when many of us live and work in areas where water costs continue to be subsidized and the cost of water may not be a major factor in the cost of doing business. As Canadians we are told that we live in a water rich region that houses approximately 20 per cent of the world’s total freshwater resources. While less than half of that (seven per cent) is considered “renewable”

The rationale makes sense, doesn’t it? It always has to me. At least until a client posed the question—“But how can we be running out of water? There’s nowhere for it to go.” My initial reaction was that this comment was simply the quick witted argument from an environmental naysayer. But it took only seconds to realize that this was a valid and important point, one that needed to be addressed. In order for those of us in the irrigation industry to truly commit to being much more conscientious about our water use, this question and the answer, have to be talked about. Not just talked about, but incorporated into our rationale for making better water use choices. The reality is that yes,

Majority of moisture the result of ocean water evaporation Resources from A33

about water as a “renewable” resource: “Water may be considered an inexhaustible resource because the total supply of water in the biosphere is not affected by human activities. “Water is not destroyed by human uses, although it may be held for a time in combination with other chemicals. “To be useful however, water must be in a particular place and of a certain quality. In certain locations water has a much longer cycling time. “In certain arid regions, the total water supply may be underground water that accumulated during past ages, when the climate of the region was more humid. “Since that time there may have been little or no addition to this supply because of the existing climatic conditions. Because it’s cycling time may be extremely long and dependent upon the frequency with which wet and dry climates alternate in a particular region, such a water resource can

be virtually nonrenewable.” It becomes a matter of timing and at this point the word restraint would be worth mentioning. Even those of us without an economics education can understand a simplified concept of supply and demand. Environmentally speaking, the ideal situation is when the two are perfectly balanced. For instance, it is good to have enough of a particular species to fill the needs of those dependent on it, but not so much that it becomes a nuisance. However, over thousands of years we have managed to lose sight of that balance and with technology ever advancing, exercising restraint has become less necessary as we can simply “make more” of whatever it is we want. The natural world of plants, animals and water are the losers in this scenario as their value has become downgraded as a result of the myth that we can always make more of whatever we are running short of.

Water is unique in this scenario in that it is not disappearing, more accurately it is relocating. As we use it and release it to the atmosphere it moves around the planet, most often settling into the oceans that cover over 70 per cent of the globe. Images of the hydrologic cycle have not changed in essence over the years, but what they have often not included is some reference to the volumes of water that move from place to place in the form of evaporation, transpiration and precipitation. The majority of the moisture in the atmosphere is from water evaporated from the oceans. Of that volume, about 90 per cent of it returns to the oceans while only 10 per cent of it reaches land as precipitation. Of the total moisture in the air, approximately 10 per cent of it comes from plants (transpiration) while the rest if from oceans, lakes and streams. (Source: US Geological Surveys Water Science School, http://ga.water.usgs.gov/edu/watercycle

summary.html.) Historically, the moisture in the atmosphere which comes primarily from the oceans, could sufficiently replenish the various bodies of fresh water in the form of precipitation. It could also infiltrate and replenish aquifers through pervious services and as such, a balanced hydrological cycle existed. As human demands for fresh water have increased and surpassed this natural cycle of replenishment globally, on any given day there are countless parts of the world that are operating in a water deficit. While some parts of the world have water resources intact, others have completely or nearly completely depleted theirs and Canada is being closely watched and likely courted, by those regions who find themselves without sufficient water resources. Whether or not you are politically active, the irrigation industry is a major user and stewards of our freshwater resources and as such, we should be following any movements with respect to selling of our Canadian

water resources. While the world’s water continues to circulate, managing the volumes that find their way into our water reservoirs is critical to ensure that we keep ourselves in the “have” category when it comes to water. If we deplete our resources it is unlikely that we will have the ability and/ or the will to stop what we are doing long enough to let the cycle catch up. That is not where we want to end up. We have the knowledge and experience to make influential decisions now to stay ahead of the curve and as a bonus, we can manage rising water costs as water rates catch up to realistic levels. Working to increase and maintain our water resource is achievable and worth the effort to avoid ever having to ask the question “where has all the water gone?” Shauna Burnell is a water conscious individual who co-owns Waterkind Consulting, a consulting company with the mandate of reducing irrigation water use by improving irrigation system efficiencies.

Argentina mixes olives and wine, to keep travelers happy

MAIPU, Argentina—Ten minutes in the orchard and already my hands felt raw. How do they do this all day without gloves, I wondered, shuffling my feet for a better foothold in Argentina’s sandy clay. It was Thursday, the day we’d expected to be tasting wine at the Zuccardi family’s finca (ranch) and winery, in Maipu, Mendoza Province. Instead, we were clawing through a tangle

of branches, trying to pick enough olives to feed Zuccardi’s state-of-the-art olive oil press. It looked so easy when Torey Novak, Zuccardi’s tour guide, gave a demonstration. You hang a cone-shaped canvas sack around your neck and pick a tree loaded with ripe fruit. Reaching up into a branch, you grab it with both hands and yank down hard, stripping the olives off and into the sack. When your neck cries uncle, you empty the sack into the 40-pound crate handily stacked nearby. Then you fill the second crate, and the third, all day every day until the harvest ends or your hands scream uncle.

“Nah, most good pickers don’t wear gloves,” said Novak, amused. He could see I was hopelessly awkward. “I couldn’t do it either,” he admitted. “Not for long, anyway. But our best picker can fill 45 crates in a day.” Mercifully, my career as a field hand died before it was born. But why in blazes were we fooling with olives when we’d left Buenos Aires three days earlier on a mission: to smell, savour, taste and compare Malbec, Argentina’s signature red wine, at the source? And why was La Familia Zuccardi, a family-owned, three-generation-old winery and leading Malbec producer, growing olives?

As it happens, a number of long-established wineries here in the Cuyo area, scrubby desert land on the sunny east slope of the Andes Mountains, grow multiple crops. The soil, irrigated for centuries before Europeans explored the region, is ideal for growing both grapes and olives; more than 6,000 olive growers and 1,200 wineries are scattered through the two adjacent provinces of Mendoza and San Juan. The region’s newer wineries stick mostly to grapes, concentrating their efforts on buildSee Argentina A37

ing sales. But for visitors to the region, the complete farm-to-bodega tour adds another dimension altogether. When you’ve mucked around in the man’s orchards and harvested his olives, you feel invested. After picking the fruit, clumping through the mud and riding back to the processing plant with the crates stacked on the golf cart, we watched our olives macerated into mush. Tasting the newly pressed oil, we proudly pasted labels on our takehome bottles. Then we knocked the dirt off our shoes and headed for the bodega itself. Here, in the Casa Del Visitante, sepia-toned photos serve a slice of late 19th century history, capturing tired-looking Italian immigrants toting luggage, working the fields, picking grapes and vegetables and building railroads. Framed photos of Zaccardi’s founding ancestors, frozen in ankle-length dresses and high collars, highlight the exhibits. Then it was on to the fermentation vats and eventually to the tasting room. The tour ended not with a “we’re done, let’s go,” but with a traditional Argentine meal prepared by Chef Ana Rodriguez at the winery’s casual cafe and food shop, the Pan Y Oliva. For wine aficionados, Mendoza is a destination in its own right. One way to get there is by flying through Miami to Santiago, Chile, and east over the Andes (a short flight or drive) into Argentina. But for us, the winery visits were an add-on, a last minute addition to a family reunion in Buenos Aires. Our third cousins in Buenos Aires (newly-discovered on Facebook) had invited us to visit more than once. When they proposed a trip to Mendoza, heart of the world’s fifth largest wine industry, we couldn’t say no. What we’d forgotten is that Argentina is nearly as large as the United States (four times the size of Texas); Mendoza, 646 miles west of Buenos Aires, is hardly a weekend getaway. And with limited vacation time, flying was the only option. We’d rent a car at the airport, we assumed, and explore the wine country on a relaxed schedule, just as we’ve done in California’s Napa and Sonoma, in Oregon, in Washington state, even in France. But that isn’t the way they do it in Mendoza. Because the wineries are scattered far apart and

Our cousins, who knew the drill, handled it for the four of us, arranging a three-day guided tour with a guide they’d used before. We started in San Juan Province, going first to Callia Winery and then to Graffigna, where Chief Wine Maker Gerardo Danitz, eager to answer even the dumbest question, fielded a tasting that could have doubled as Wine Wisdom 101. His patient explanations were an ideal send-off for what would be three days of tasting, spitting, tasting— and running out of adjectives to describe the infinite range of fruity, nutty flavours. Heading south to Mendoza, we stopped first at Vistalba Bodega, wine czar Carlos Pulenta’s show place, where most visits include both tasting and lunch at his

Then it was on to Tupungato Winelands to see recently planted vineyards and the new golf course; to Salentein and a culture museum; and finally to Zuccardi, which is how we found ourselves in the dirt, discussing olive cultivation.

That was the scenario my driving partner and I faced as we arrived in Nanaimo and joined the first wave of journalists in the country to test Subaru’s redesigned Forester compact sport ute. A flight delay meant that we didn’t get into Nanaimo until near dark and then we faced a two-anda-half hour drive to our destination. But it soon became evident the new fourth-generation Forester that we were driving was easily up to the challenge. We were given the keys to a performance-oriented 250 hp XT model that features a new

The drive from Nanaimo to Ucluelet on the west coast of Vancouver Island is a challenging one at the best of times. It’s even more of a test when you do it at night because for much of the journey in this rugged area there is nothing to light up your way other than the headlights of your vehicle. To get to Ucluelet, you make your way north to Parksville and then head west through Port Alberni. It is from here that you encounter constant elevation changes as the road snakes back and forth through tricky mountain passes en route to your

MOTORING

Forester 23% of Subaru sales in Canada last year Subaru from B1 2.0-litre direct-injection twin scroll turbocharged engine, mated with one of the best continuously variable transmissions (CVT) I have tested. The Forester’s fulltime all-wheel drive system evoked a feeling of confidence as we made our way through the twisty bits, particularly in one area where the pavement was a bit damp and greasy with snowdrifts off to either side of the road. For casual observers, the exterior styling of the 2014 Forester will appear little changed, but Subaru aficionados will notice that the look is bolder this time around. While the footprint of the Forester is not much different, the cabin is roomier in both front and rear. Meanwhile power in

the performance Forester XT model has been increased by 20 hp, yet the fuel economy is best-inclass for all-wheel drive models and near the top of the entire compact SUV category. The Forester, which first debuted in 1997, is among Subaru’s most important vehicles as it accounted for 23 per cent of the company’s 31,003 units sold in Canada last year. So when Forester project manager Takuji Dai set out on the path for the 2014 model, his goals were to enhance the core strengths of the previous generation—safety, utility and performance— and improve on the weak points such as fuel economy, interior roominess and the transmission. From early indications, he was successful in

all areas. The 6.2L/100 km highway fuel economy rating is tops in class for AWD models, while there is more rear seat legroom and the new Lineartronic CVT is a step forward. With the new direct injection turbo 2.0-litre, power is up from 223 to 250 hp even with the improvements in fuel economy. As always with Subaru, safety isn’t forgotten as the 2014 Forester has once again been named a Top Safety Pick by the IIHS in the US. For those who aren’t performance oriented, the Forester comes standard with a naturally aspirated 2.5-litre horizontally opposed Boxer engine, producing 170 hp and 174 lb/ft of torque. A new sixspeed manual transmission is standard with the 2.5i entry-level model,

starting at $25,995. At the top end is the Forester lineup is XT Limited with navigation and the Eyesight pre-collision safety system, priced at $37,995. The manual transmission is available on the 2.5i entry level and the Touring package as is the CVT as an option. All other trim levels get the CVT only, while a high-torque version of the CVT with six- and eightspeed manual shift models with steering wheel paddle shifters is standard on the direct-injection turbo model. All CVT models also get a new feature called X-Mode and Hill Descent Control that works together with the all-wheel drive system to provide extra control in slippery driving conditions. Among the other new features for 2014 are anti-whiplash front seats, a driver’s knee airbag, brake override and impact sensing fuel system cutoff. For those who enjoy off-road adventures, the Forester enjoys 220 mm of ground clearance— higher than many crossovers and SUVs. Electric power steering is standard this time around. Subaru engineers made the 2014 Forester more passenger-friendly with lowered side sills (38 mm lower) for easy ingress along with wider rear door openings, making it easier to accommodate child seats in the rear.

Greater use of highstrength steel has improved body rigidity on the new Forester and thus suspension performance is a cut above the outgoing model. In fact, during our time with the Forester it appeared composed at all times, except for an encounter with one huge pothole that would have shaken up the occupants of any vehicle. The XT model also gets something called SI Drive that gives the option of using I (Intelligent), S (Sport) and S# (Sport Sharp). I, for normal driving situations, provides smooth power output and improved fuel economy,

while S increases use of higher engine speeds and S# gives sharper throttle response and eight-speed stepped shifting. The compact sport utility segment in Canada continues to grow at a rapid rate with sales up 25 per cent from 2008 to more than 311,000 units in 2012. It is also an extremely competitive segment with 26 models now on the market. Even in this competitive environment, with the changes for 2014 the Subaru Forester will no doubt grow market share, bringing in new customers to the brand while holding on to the loyal Subaru followers who love them because of their commitment to safety and reliability. The 2014 Forester is available at Canadian dealerships now.

from their bottom rung. And I’d credit equal parts to styling. Not that Hyundai’s “fluidic sculpture” design renders equally across the lineup. With some models, Korean sibling Kia, employing Peter Schreyer’s crisper lines and more European look, delivers a more fetching exterior. For example, I prefer the Optima’s styling over the Sonata. But fluidic sculpture is spot on with the Elantra Coupe, one of the company’s sharpest rides next to the more powerful and pricey Genesis sports coupe. In the two-door Elantra, Hyundai’s signature hexagonal grille and swept-back headlights provide a bolder first impression than any predecessor. Slit fog lights flow into muscular front wheel arches, adding to the aggressive demeanour. What’s best about the new exterior is its side profile. The wedge silhouette with deeply sculpted surfaces and upswept character lines is yet another example of why two doors generally look better than four. Add the optional five-spoke 17-inch alloy wheels as found in SE trim, and you’d think this sporty coupe far exceeds its $25,199 price tag. The same goes for the nicely fitted interior. Even at the $19,949 for the base GLS with manual, you get a wellequipped car that includes the usual power locks, windows, keyless entry and air, along with heated front seats (six/four-way adjustable for driver and passenger), hands-free Bluetooth, tilt/telescopic and leather-wrapped steering with audio and cruise controls, 60/40 split folding rear seats, and 172-Watt AM/FM/XM/ CD/MP3 audio system with six speakers. A six-speed automatic with Shiftronic adds $1,250, and the SE package, as tested, bumps that by another $4,000. For this relatively hefty sum, you do get a load of additional content such as 17-inch alloys (up from 16-inch), automatic headlights, dual-zone automatic climate control, proximity key with pushbutton start, seven-inch navigation screen with rearview camera, leather seating and an upgraded

as anything in its class, but if you really want a kick in the seat, along with the joys of a sport-tuned suspension and limited-slip differential, there are other options, like the Civic Si and Mazdaspeed3. But you’ll pay a premium at the dealership and at the pumps – a little more with the Si, and a lot more with the Mazda. No matter, you can still have fun with the Elantra Coupe. Front suspension includes MacPherson struts with stabilizer bar, and in back the sedan’s V-beam torsion bar has been swapped for a lighter version with integrated stabilizer bar. All contribute to a reasonably firm ride. Enhancing this are steering knuckle design, torsion beam rigidity and damper tuning that have all been tuned for sportier handling than its sedan sibling. Go hard into the corners and there’s relatively little body roll. And the electric power steering delivers just enough feel to keep it interesting. I’ll admit the tighter driving dynamics of the five-door GT, which is based on Hyundai’s European i30 model, are even more compelling than the Coupe. And the GT’s driver selectable steering mode (which allows you to dial in steering feel from “comfort” to “sport”), is a nice touch. But the two-door would be my hands-down favourite in terms of styling.

Which shows that Hyundai not only has a vehicle for nearly every taste and budget, but in the compact segment, where most Canadian buyers choose to spend their hard-earned dough, they provide real options that are about more than just content levels and price.

LaFerrari seat fitted to the driver; pedal, wheel adjustable Exotics from B7 even trying to get under it. And this is a supercar with a green heart. It employs a hybrid

system sourced directly from the Ferrari F1 team’s knowledge of kinetic power regeneration. Known as HY-KERS, it blends maximum per-

formance and lower emissions. LaFerrari emits just 330 g/km of CO2 but without resorting to electric-only drive. Its 6.2-litre V12

pumps out 800 hp with a maximum of 9,250 rpm, a record for an engine of this displacement. It also features a very high 13.5:1 compression ratio and a

high specific output equal to 128 hp per litre. The engine is coupled with a 120 Kw (163 hp) electric motor, giving it a combined power output of 963 hp.

The interior is driver centric with the seat fixed and fitted to the driver with both the pedal box and steering wheel adjustable. The driving position

Exotics from B8 with the Scuderia Ferrari drivers, Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa, who played an active role throughout the entire development process. ••• At the opposite end of the Geneva exhibition centre was the Lamborghini stand with the Veneno billed as the fastest car it has ever built. Only three will be constructed at a reputed price of £2.6 million plus tax. The Veneno shares much with the Aventador supercar shown last year such as the 6.5-litre V12 engine that, in the Veneno, develops 750 hp, 50 hp more than the Aventador with top speed 221 mph mentioned. Constructed completely of carbon fibre it had red, white and green accents as a salute to its Italian origins. ••• Geneva abounds with scores of specialty constructers and coachbuilders of which one of my favourites is Gumpert Sportwagenmanufaktur GmbH. Founded by former Audi engineer Roland Gumpert, his latest is the Apollo S, a gullwing two-seater with vents and louvres everywhere to aid downforce and supply air to the 4.2-litre twin turbo V8 that produces 650 hp and 637 lb/ft of torque and sees it sprint from 0-60 mph in three seconds flat.

MOTORING ▼ GENEVA AUTO SHOW

Exotics from B9 justable rear wing to give ground effect suction and optimized downforce. IPAS (Instant Power Assist System) and DRS (Drag Reduction System) offer an instant boost of power and straight-line speed. ••• Maserati unveiled several new road-going cars the most elegant of which is the sixth-generation Quattroporte. At Geneva it was shown with three engine/ drivetrain models: Quattroporte GTS twin turbo V8 and 530 hp and rearwheel-drive; the Quattroporte S Q4 with twin turbo V6 with 410 hp and all-wheel-drive; and the Quattroporte S twin turbo V6 twin with 410 hp and rear-wheel-drive. The V8 makes it not only the fastest four-door Maserati ever built, but also the most powerful and, according to Maserati, the most economical as well. ••• Marking its centenary in 2013, Aston Martin had a brace of product at Geneva, the star of which was the world premiere of the four-door Rapide S. This model underwent an extensive re-design, the most notable feature being a huge grille. Under the hood, the new AM11 naturally aspirated 6.0-litre V12 power plant’s power is up by 17 per cent, or 81 hp, to an unprecedented 550 hp at 6,750 rpm. New Rapide S shaves 0.3 seconds off its 0-100

km/h time of the previous model, which drops from the 5.2 seconds to just 4.9 seconds. Top speed

ASTIN MARTIN’S NEW RAPIDE S SHAVES 0.3 SECONDS OFF ITS 0-100 KM/H TIME OF THE PREVIOUS MODEL, WHICH DROPS FROM THE 5.2 SECONDS TO JUST 4.9 SECONDS. TOP SPEED CLIMBS TO MORE THAN 305 KM/H. climbs to more than 190 mph. ••• Bentley claims the Flying Spur that debuted in Geneva is the fastest vehicle it has ever built. Power comes from its proven 6.0-litre, twin turbo W12 engine, coupled to a ZF eight-speed transmission that develops 616 hp. The extra speed is due in part to a 14 per cent improvement in the power-to-weight ratio over the outgoing model resulting in a 0-60 mph time of 4.3 seconds and a top-speed of 200 mph (322 km/h). As with all Bentleys, power is delivered to the road via all-wheeldrive with a 40:60 rearbiased torque split for a sure-footed, engaging drive in all road and weather conditions.

Obituaries

In Loving Memory of Marjorie Phyllis WILTSHIRE 1917 - 2013

Marjorie was born March 17th, 1917 in Lacombe, Alberta and passed away on January 11th, 2013.

Marjorie & Debbie (oldest granddaughter)

She was an Albertan Pioneer born into a family of 4 sisters and 2 brothers (Jamieson family). She married Arthur and had 2 sons (Bruce & Dan) and a daughter. Marjorie was a nurses aid in a TB Sanitorium in the Bowness area of Calgary, Alberta. She was an excellent gardener, cook and raised milk goats. She encouraged her daughter, Colleen, in her love of playing the piano, to learn popular piano methods from teacher, Jack Little. Colleen in turn taught piano lessons to many young people and her family, who greatly appreciated the music. Colleen’s best friend, Marge Merta, Marjorie’s caregiver, found Marjorie to have a great sense of humour as always. She was a very caring and active mother and grandmother who will be dearly missed by all of her grandchildren (Deb, Rob, Mich, Joy, Brandi, Megan, Christa & Nicky), great-grandchildren (RaeLynn, Ben & Tim), Stephanie & Families.

In Loving Memory of

Katalina Vasko 1933 - 2011 You are deeply missed by your children (Charles, Laszlo, Kathy, Louie and Anna), nine grandchildren, as well as family and friends from Australia and Hungry. Two years have passed since you went to be with God. There is no more pain and no more tears, now you are resting in peace. Your laughter and smiles are forever ingrained in our memories and hearts. You were such a brave soul, never giving up on anyone. You are the star that sparkles in the night sky, your spirit lives forever in each person you touched. Your strength shone through and the day you left you were able to say goodbye to each and every one of us. You are deeply missed our beloved mom, anya, gramma, sister, & friend.

Join the Re/Max Easter egg hunt West Kelowna Re/ Max realtors are now busy preparing for its 3rd annual Easter Egg Scramble in support of the Westside Community Food Bank. The event takes place Sunday, March 31, at the Johnson Bentley sports field, from noon to 2 p.m. “The Re/Max team has prepared 12,000 Easter eggs for this year’s event,” said Darcy Elder, a member of the West Kelowna Re/Max real estate office. “The egg hunt will commence at 1 p.m. sharp as children ages 10 years and younger will be encouraged to find as many eggs as possible.” As an added bonus, there will be golden eggs hidden inside the eggs. Children who find a

OKANAGAN

▼ OF PRIME INTEREST

Longer term fixed rate mortgages offer some intriguing benefits CONTRIBUTED

THE EASTER egg bunny is sure to make another

appearance at the annual Easter Egg Scramble on March 31 at the Johnson-Bentley sports field in West Kelowna. golden egg (with a ticket number inside) will be given a special Easter basket. “Last year, it took about three minutes for the children to capture all 12,000 eggs,” said Tracey Boorman, a West Kelowna Re/Max real estate agent. “It was quite the sight, thousands of excited kids running out onto the field locating the eggs.” Boorman noted there will be two different Easter egg hunts taking place—one for children ages five to 10 and another for the younger kids ages four and under.

“There are plenty of other reasons for families to come out and enjoy this event,” added Elder. “The Easter Bunny will be arriving by fire truck, there will be helium balloons, face painting, a petting zoo and many other fun games and activities.” Volunteers will be on location accepting food and monetary donations for the West Kelowna Community Food Bank. “This is a great outdoor activity for the entire family and with 12,000 eggs to be collected,” said food bank executive director Lenetta Parry.

In the midst of the current mortgage rate competition, the Bank of Montreal made news this week with its interest rate offering of 2.99% for a five-year fixed rate mortgage. However, the reality is most mortgage brokers have been securing mortgage deals on rates below three per cent for several months now, and even more attractive rates on seven- and 10-year mortgage deals. What does that mean for you? As has been said often in the past months, mortgage rates will go up—it’s just a matter of when. The five-year fixed mortgage interest rate is at 2.89% and the 10-year fixed rate 3.69%. In between, we have the seven year rate at 3.49%. Historically, shorter terms and the lower probability of dramatic rates increases were two common arguments against choosing a 10year mortgage. These arguments were somewhat weakened with the launch of the record-low 10-year fixed rate of 3.69%.

When it comes to choosing a mortgage term, there is always a fixation on the rate. Typically, people tend more to shorter terms for marginal savings. While the 10-year rate being offered today is far below average, if you think rates are likely to rise and move back into a more normal range, then choosing a shorter term today may be looked back on as a missed opportunity. Break-even analysis shows that for the 10-year fixed mortgage to be a better deal than the five-year option, interest rates must rise over 1.60% in the next 60 months. There are other factors to consider when choosing a 10-year mortgage. If you were to pay the mortgage off during the first five years, the penalty could be a negative factor. Most closed fixed-rate mortgages have a prepayment penalty that is the greater of three months interest or the IRD (interest rate differential). The IRD is based the amount you are prepaying and an interest rate that equals the differ-

ence between your original rate and the interest rate the lender can charge today when relending the funds for the remaining term of the mortgage. Each lender has its own formula for calculating penalties, so you want to have a clear understanding how this might apply specifically to your mortgage. The great thing about a 10 year term is the lenders are limited to charging only a three month interest penalty for the first five years. Another option to avoid an interest penalty with a 10-year mortgage is if you have decided to purchase another home, most lenders will allow you to port the mortgage to the new property. Current interest rates at that time will apply to a port mortgage, while a decrease in the mortgage will require a penalty payment only on the decreased difference. Of Prime Interest is a collaboration of mortgage professionals Trish Balaberde (250-470-8324), Darwyn Sloat (250-718-4117) and Kristin Rosdal (250-878-3007).

Spring warmth coming but housing sales market still cool

T

he majority of the encouraging 2013 real estate forecasts are starting to look bleak and slightly misleading for the first quarter in the Okanagan. For the Central Okanagan, a comparison between February 2012 and February 2013, sales were down across the board by 17.77 per cent. Residential sales decreased from this time last year by 12.31 per cent, as only a mere 114 single family homes sold in February compared to the more optimistic number of 130 units in 2012.

Condominium sales experienced a disappointing decrease as well, as sales were down 24.07 per cent and townhouses faced a similar scenario, a diminishing 30.61 per cent in sales for the month of February. Inventory for the Central Okanagan is continuing to remain in the lower spectrum; listing activity was down 17.82 per cent from 2012.

NO JOKE! That’s right - NO JOKE! For a limited time, you can purchase a brand new detached home in Upper Mission from $369,900 + HST! No Strata! & No Condo Fees!

For February, 357 single-family properties came onto the market, a decrease of just under six per cent from the 378 from the previous year. There is some Ceinwen news for conMorgan good do sellers—only 134 condominiums came onto the market, a decline of 20.71 per cent. Although inventory for single-family homes has not met the level of product on the market from

REAL ESTATE RUNDOWN

the previous year, it has increased from January—1,196 units compared to 1,320 units. “We remain concerned; I remain concerned with the housing market in Canada,” said Canada’s Finance Minister Jim Flaherty. Flaherty’s concern also arises from a recent announcement by the Bank of Montreal decreasing their mortgage rates to 2.99 per cent for a five-year term. His concerns are that a historic low percentage in mortgage rates may ultimately contribute to loose spending by buyers in already uncertain economy, resulting in the

infamous bubble bursting if there is a spike in the mortgage rates down the line. Unfortunately, there is no crystal ball for us to turn to for advice on the real estate market in Kelowna or the Central Okanagan. Our only option is to educate ourselves on the current market conditions and trends, avoid taking on too much debt too quickly and to ask yourselves: “How long will rates and inventory continue to remain low?” Ceinwen Morgan has worked in the Kelowna real estate industry for the past five years.
