oday is World Water Day and in the Okanagan, everything revolves around water—whether there’s going to be enough and whether we can keep it safe. Despite that chain of deep lakes and rivers that snake along the bottom of the valley, the beaches, benches and hillsides on either side are sere and barren once the last of spring’s rain and runoff has evaporated or run off into the big lake. In today’s close-up, Capital News reporter Judie Steeves looks at what is being done to help preserve our natural water supply against conflicting uses. See story A3

Water stewardship winning awards in the Okanagan Judie Steeves STAFF REPORTER

A

lthough it is scarce in the semi-desert Okanagan, water is essential to life, whether as the liquid that makes up a large part of our bodies and needs to be constantly replenished to cleanse them, or whether as habitat for the myriad of creatures to which it is their home. So careful management of the Okanagan’s water is a task that has been undertaken by the Okanagan Basin Water Board, made up of directors from the three regional districts in the valley; and by the Okanagan Water Stewardship Council, which provides technical advice to the board. Today, the council’s efforts were recognized with the first Council of the Federation Excellence in Water Stewardship Award, presented by local MLA Steve Thomson, the provincial minister of natural resource operations. As a cabinet minister who grew up in Kelowna, Thomson admits that people in the Okanagan tend to take water for granted. Yet he says the need to resolve the competing interests and needs for water will continue to grow as the population grows. He said the award is quite an honour, with the OWSC out-competing the rest of a field of 16 nom-

ANNA Warwick Sears, executive director of the Okanagan Basin Water Board. inees. He’s hopeful it will garner some recognition from the public for the behind-the-scenes work being done by the council. Each province in the federation presented a water stewardship award for the first time this year. Support letters for the OWSC repeatedly used the terms collaboration and innovation in water stewardship. The OWSC is made up of realtors, foresters, anglers, biologists, farmers, scientists, public health staff, planners, hydrologists and natives from around the valley. Despite their diverse views, they all sit shoul-

der to shoulder around the table and talk about water issues. Sometimes the talk is heated and this disparate group disagrees, but through discussion often there’s a breakthrough and there’s excitement as one element gains a sudden vision of clarity on another’s viewpoint— and another step forward is taken. For the last seven years, this unlikely group of volunteers—all of whom have a common interest in water—have made their way to Kelowna once a month to talk about such diverse topics as declining water lev-

els in wells; links between groundwater and surface water; how much water is enough; what affects water quality and invasive aquatic species. The OWSC is a unique body, providing expertise from the field on water issues and tapping scientific research to provide accurate answers to questions and the basis for recommendations to the OBWB, the decision-making board, made up of politicians who represent the public. The Okanagan basin involves 19 government jurisdictions, is home to more than 315,000 people, double that in visitors, and a sometimes-endangered diversity of fish and wildlife— and all rely on a single source of water. In 2008, the council produced the Okanagan Sustainable Water Strategy, complete with recommendations on policies and projects on water conservation, water economics, irrigation efficiency, water monitoring and reporting and water source protection. It followed with the Okanagan Water Supply and Demand Project, the most detailed assessment of water supply and demand ever conducted in western Canada, which includes a framework of models and data on which to build future work.

RICK Simpson, chair, Okanagan region, the B.C. Wildlife Federation fisheries committee.

Water is fish habitat as well Judie Steeves STAFF REPORTER

Although he’s only lived in the Okanagan for the past decade, Rick Simpson says his move to the valley was an immediate eye-opener into how scarce water is here, and how important it is that we cherish the resource. “The myth of abundance becomes clear,” he says. With experience in restoration of fish habitat in other jurisdictions, he immediately became interested and involved in such issues here, and today he is co-chair of the B.C. Wildlife Federation’s Okanagan Region fisheries committee. He notes that all the valley’s water is already managed, mostly for domestic and agricultural uses. He warns that we must consider not only the quantity and quality of water available in the Okanagan for human consumption, recreational and agricultural use, but also as habitat, for fish. “It’s not just for roaring our boats around on; for drinking and for watering lawns,” comments Simpson. “We need to understand that water is also fish habitat. Those that live in it

might notice if our wastewater treatment doesn’t work right. “Fish are our canaries in the coal mine. Fish kills tell us something about their habitat. “Oxygen-loving, cold-water loving fish with high metabolic rates are warning us about low flows in streams because they need adequate flows at the right time of year.” Both quality and quantity is of concern. “If we had the equivalent of a ‘fish kill’ but with people—a health event that kills people or makes them sick—we wouldn’t hesitate to act quickly to fix the problem,” he noted. “Too bad fish aren’t afforded the same courtesy and level of concern.” He’s concerned about how slow it’s taking to revise the province’s water act and to get an integrated water management plan in place for the Okanagan. Then, he notes, we have to support that with enforcement and compliance monitoring. Yet, instead, budgets for fish are diminishing and there’s been a deliberate “enfeeblement of fish protection legislation,” he charges. jsteeves@kelownacapnews.com

Two of the men accused of killing Red Scorpion gangster Jonathan Bacon and attempting to kill four others appeared in a Kelowna courtroom Thursday for the first time since their arrest. Jason Thompson McBride, 37, sat next to a shorter, stockier Michael Kerry Hunter Jones, 25, as the duo appeared by video in for a brief court appearance. A third accused, 25-year-old Jujhar Singh KhunKhun, was absent. “Mr. Khun-Khun is still in hospital,” Crown counsel Dave Ruse told a justice of the peace. The reason for him being in hospital was not disclosed in the courtroom. Media reports from January indicate Khun-Khun was seriously injured in a Surrey shooting that month. The Abbotsford News also reported that the January 15, 2013, shooting was the third time since 2010 that Khun-Khun had been injured in gunfire. Khun-Khun, McBride and Jones were all arrested in February in connection with the August 2011 shooting outside the Delta Grand hotel that killed Bacon and injured Hells Angel Larry Amero, Independent Soldier James Riach, and two young women, Leah Hadden-Watts and Lyndsey Black. The court case, says Crown, is still in the “disclosure” phase. The next appearance for the men is scheduled for April 25.

the highlight of my career was being appointed as the detachment commander in May, 2004,” McKinnon said in a release. His last day of work will be Thursday, March 28.

Three people were arrested and face multiple potential charges after a traffic stop was conducted for improper use of a licence plate Wednesday afternoon. The Kelowna RCMP Target Team and general duty members conducted a traffic stop at 1:30 p.m. on a suspicious vehicle with three occupants on the 800 block of Saucier Avenue. Police noted that the green 1993 Ford Taurus had a B.C. licence plate that was registered to another vehicle. As police approached, a man was observed placing something in the trunk. That item was later determined to be a loaded .25 calibre handgun. The driver, a 27-year-old Kelowna man, provided police with a false name and was arrested for obstruction and driving while prohibited. He was also found to be wanted on outstanding warrants out of Vernon. The male passenger fled on foot and was pursued a short distance before being taken into custody. During the foot pursuit, the man broke into a house in an attempt to evade police. The female passenger was apparently witnessed removing a container from the trunk and concealing it in a nearby yard. The contents of the container were found to be methamphetamine, cocaine, a liquid substance believed to be Fentanyl and various pills. In all, police seized $710 cash, various quantities of methamphetamine, cocaine, marijuana, suspected Fentanyl, Percocet, Lorazepam and Clonazepam, as well as the handgun. The passengers, a 31-year-old Kelowna man and a 28-year-old Kelowna woman face potential charges of obstruction, careless use of a firearm, unauthorized possession of a firearm, possession of a restricted firearm with ammunition and possession for the purpose of trafficking. The man also faces a potential charge of being unlawfully in a dwelling.

FLUSHING NOTICE

A second effort to help Syrian family fails Wade Paterson STAFF REPORTER

West Kelowna couple Wendy Porteous Scorgie and Jim Scorgie are feeling hopeless after their Syrian friend, Marwa Saffaf, was denied a temporary Canadian resident visa for the second time. In February, the Capital News told the story of Marwa, her husband and three young boys who are currently living in Aleppo. Marwa’s family is confined to their house most days and she has heard the sound of explosions near their neighbourhood. The situation is continuing to get worse, according to Wendy and Jim. Okanagan-Coquihalla MP Dan Albas confirmed he has been working with the couple in an interview last month. Albas said he

is doing what he can to help the couple assist their friend in obtaining a successful visitor application. “I haven’t had any direct contact with the (Syrian) family themselves; I’ve been trying to offer advice and assistance, or at least present options, to the Scorgie family so they can have a visit with their friend,” said Albas. Marwa’s initial visa application was rejected Jan. 28. On March 11, Marwa traveled to Beirut to submit her second application. According to Wendy and Jim, she spent the last several weeks acquiring 12 letters from doctors, lawyers, school inspectors and friends who spoke about Marwa’s character and her business and family ties to Aleppo. The suggestion to ac-

quire letters was advice Wendy and Jim received from Albas. They also applied for a shorter three-month visa; the first application was for a 12-month stay in Canada. Marwa received a rejection letter two days later. An officer of Citizen and Immigration Canada stated that he/she was still not satisfied Marwa’s family would leave Canada at the end of their stay. “Marwa came on Skype and she was crying so much that it was hard to hear her,” said Wendy. “She did exactly what our MP suggested. Apply for a shorter length visa and (she) had many letters from people saying that she has many ties to Syria.” She added Marwa would like to be able to re-

City in Action CounCil HigHligHts intermunicipal transportation Bylaw

Council endorsed an agreement to formally enter into a new intermunicipal transportation partnership known as the Sustainable Transportation Partnership of the Central Okanagan (STPCO). This strategic partnership of local and regional governments in the Central Okanagan will coordinate the regional delivery of sustainable transportation programs and projects in support of common regional policy, plans and interests (economic, social and environmental). Council directed the City Manager to work with his local and regional government counterparts to oversee and provide direction to the STPCO.

Business improvement Areas

The 2013 budgets for the Downtown Kelowna Association and the Uptown Rutland Association were approved. Council authorized a levy on light industrial, and business/other properties within the local improvement areas that will provide the DKA with an annual budget of $679,000 and URBA a budget of $162,800.

small shop saturdays

Council approved a Downtown Kelowna Association request for free parking to support Small Shop Saturdays. On-street parking downtown will be free April 6, June 22 and a Saturday yet to be determined in October. Posted time limits remain in effect for the free parking days, to encourage turnover of the spots to other shoppers.

utility Billing services

During the next nine months, customer billing will be handled by the city’s current billing service provider, Corix Utilities Inc, so there is no interruption to service in the event of a transfer of the City’s electrical utility to FortisBC. Effective April 1, the city will also change its current practice of imposing a

turn to Syria, but admits, “Whether it could be after a temporary visa, at this point, who knows.” Albas said, other than offering advice, there is little he can do. He noted it’s important that issues such as these remain “an

CLOSE-UP ▼ THE MYTH OF ABUNDANCE

Syilx people view water differently Judie Steeves STAFF REPORTER

Water is vital to the Okanagan Nation people in many ways, not the least of which is nourishment. Traditionally, it also provided them with essential food, transportation and ceremonial cleansing explains Leon Louis, a knowledge-holder with the Okanagan Nation. The Syilx people travelled with the seasons throughout their traditional territory, which covers the Okanagan Valley on both sides of the international border, following the seasonal foods that made up their diet. For instance, in fall, they would congregate around Okanagan Lake to fish for kickinee or kokanee salmon, which they dried, smoked, fried, boiled, baked and used for trading. “It was like our

money,” he explains. By preserving the abundant little red landlocked salmon, they would have protein throughout the winter months, along with game meat and birds. “We would eat different foods at different times of the year. We had all we needed; medicines too,” he says. Local herbs would be used for good health—to prevent illness—as well as to heal, he noted. For them to be healthy, Okanagan creeks need the kickinee to travel up them as they would naturally to spawn each fall. “That means the water is healthy,” he explains. “Our bodies are also healthier if we eat the foods available naturally here, rather than going to the store to eat unhealthy foods.” In the winter ceremony, he said water is tops. “It’s very sacred to our people.” It would be followed by the chiefs of roots, berries, salmon and deer. Water was also used to wash away the negativity. “We would wash in it before a trip for a safe journey. We would pray for the lake and the water and everything in it. Prayer can change water’s molecules,” he recalls. As well, young girls are taken to pray at each of the Okanagan Basin’s creeks a different times of the year to teach them respect for water. “It can give or take your life, so it’s important you take good care of the

They are now being used in regional growth strategies, liquid waste management plans, water master plans, dam safety studies, and hydrology research. This project has won awards and been featured in reports and presentations across the country. Along the way, the council also developed a groundwater bylaws toolkit for use by local governments and a water reporting tool for the valley’s water utilities. Anna Warwick Sears, executive director of the OBWB and nominator of WATER WARS the OWSC for the award, noted the Okanagan is OCCUR WHEN one of the most waterWATER SUPPLIES stressed regions in CanARE SHORT… ada: “A lovely, unique Anna Warwick Sears and very complex; fragile, semi-arid landscape that is rapidly urbanizing.” She noted it is a major challenge to meet all water needs, “with such competing uses, climate change, population growth and encroachment on Nature’s ecological support system. “How do you make sense of such complexity without broad agreement from across sectors?” she asks. With such diversity on the council, often conflicts over water can be resolved, before they grow, she noted. “Water wars occur when water supplies are short, so building these relationships and networks before wars can happen is really valuable,” she commented. She reiterated the OBWB mantra “One Valley, One Water,” which describes the flow of water from higher elevations around the valley to the valley bottom, and from north to south, so whatever impacts water along the way is ultimately felt by those downstream. “We have a mutual responsibility for our water; to respect it,” she says. “A water pollution problem in any community affects all Okanagan cities tourism-wise because the Okanagan is marketed and seen as one region by visitors.” The board and its council is involved every year in celebrating World Water Day, and tonight will be sponsoring a panel discussion with participants Sears, Maria Besso, speaking for Kalamalka Lake; Rick Simpson, for Wood Lake (see sidebar story A3); Leon Louis, Syilx knowledge-holder on Okanagan Lake (see sidebar story A8); Stu Wells, Osoyoos Mayor, for Osoyoos Lake; and Justin Hall on the theme of cooperation.

water,” says Louis. His people have a committee of traditional ecological knowledge-keepers who meet to work on using water more wisely and prevent it from becoming more polluted. “All of us need to work together to achieve that,” he says. “We need to look after our water. The environment is very important. It’s our children we need to think about.” The water of Okanagan Lake was also used for transportation, carrying dug-out canoes 40 to 50 feet long to haul things from the head of the lake to Penticton, often visiting along the way. He recalled that the first year that he canoed down the lake the wind wouldn’t let them go through past Rattlesnake Island. Because of the wind they were stuck for two days until the elders told them what to do: to make offerings of moose or elk to Ogopogo, who guards Coyote’s sweat lodge. Then, the water was as calm as glass and they were able to continue down the lake. Elders are relied on for such knowledge instead of a manual of written instructions. “Little is known about us because not much is written down by native people,” explains Louis, so he tries to make the public more aware of Syilx culture.

Firefighter helps train his firefighting brethren in Peru A member of the Kelowna Fire Department will spend his spring vacation with a group of other B.C. firefighters in Peru, providing enhanced training for South American firefighters known as Bomberos. Glenn Paley will travel with Firefighters Without Borders Canada on April 1 to Peru to continue the development of a working relationship with the Peruvian Fire Service. FWB Canada has delivered two large donations of used firefighting equipment to Peru over the last two years. “I’m very passionate about the fire service and being a part of the brotherhood of firefighting,” said Paley. “I’m excited to pass on some of the knowledge and experience that I have gained here in North America and share it with the Peruvian Bomberos.” He said volunteering to help train firefighters in other parts of the world is his way of giving back. And it’s also because of the people he met and worked with a year ago when he first went to Peru on a similar deployment. “They were just so nice and friendly and welcoming. Many have become friends,” he said. Paley, who is making his second trip to Peru to help train firefighters there, sees this as an opportunity to take the knowledge he’s gained over the last 20 years in the fire service here, and guide the Bomberos towards more safe and efficient firefighting practices. He described the conditions for firefighters in the South American country as similar to when he joined the Kelowna Fire Department 20 years ago. But that is in the lar-

ger cities like the capital Lima. In the smaller, rural communities, it’s worse, with equipment that is very old and training has been sparse in the past. Still, many firefighters there are third and fourth general bomberos and there is a lot of pride in the job. One big difference between Peru and Canada is the number of women firefighters, said Paley. In some areas, women account for as much as 20 per cent of the firefighter

complement. As a training captain with the KFD, Paley will be responsible for putting together the training plans for the trip. He said the differences—most buildings there are masonry, not wood, as well as the standard of equipment— means taking a different approach to fighting fires. Culture also plays a part and then there’s the issue of language. The team has two Spanish-speaking fire-

fighters going with them—one, a firefighter originally from El Salvador who moved to Canada and joined a Lower Mainland department after being trained in his native country in part by an earlier FWB Canada team. While in Peru, the team will also use translators who have a knowledge of firefighting because of the terms that firefighters use, said Paley. Along with the other members of FWB Can-

ada team, Paley has been involved in fundraising efforts and securing donations of equipment for the team’s deployment to Peru. FWB Canada and its members bear all the costs of shipping equipment, developing training programs, travel expenses and they use their vacation time for the missions. While the team leader, a Vancouver Fire Rescue Services lieutenant and three other members will be making their fourth trip to Peru and Paley his

second, the rest of the firefighters accompanying them will be going for the first time. The Cuerpo General

de Bomberos Voluntarios del Peru is an all-volunteer national fire service serving more than 29 million Peruvians.

Great care for mom from some great people

To the editor: I am writing this letter to make sure that the paramedic drivers from Kelowna who drove my sick mother to and from her cancer clinic visits and her final drive to Kelowna General Hospital are recognized for the outstanding and compassionate care they gave my mother, Ms Gloria Pillott. My mother was diagnosed with cancer in December 2012, and she needed to start treatments in February 2013. The ambulance came and took her to her appointments from Springvalley Care home to the Cancer Clinic at Kelowna General Hospital, Monday to Friday, for two weeks, until she couldn’t do her treatments anymore because she was too weak. My mother talked about how nice and caring the paramedics were. That warmed my heart to know that she was in good hands, and that in her final days she was compassionately cared for. It wasn’t till the end of February, I got to meet a couple of paramedics

here was some public business conducted in the final frantic days of the B.C. legislature session last week, but you likely wouldn’t have heard much about it. Premier Christy Clark’s skimpy governing agenda was overshadowed by the delivery of an internal investigation report into her government’s ethnic outreach program. A review by four deputy ministers detailed what reporters already knew from a memo and meeting notes leaked to the NDP. The plan started in the premier’s office, led by Clark’s deputy chief of staff, who resigned as soon as it was made public. A B.C. Liberal Party employee attended the first meeting, express-

ly intended to organize events to impress immigrant communities, then harvest the goodwill in the form of contact lists for the coming election. After 10,000 e-mails Tom were collected and 27 Fletcher interviews conducted, they revealed a few significant details. Former multiculturalism minister John Yap knew or should have known that the scheme was being kept secret because it was an inappropriate use of government resources. He won’t be back in cabinet, although Clark said he intends to run for re-election in Richmond-Steveston. Yap’s executive assistant resigned when the report came out, admitting he helped cover the tracks of political meddling in the hiring of three outreach

contractors with sufficient loyalty to the party. Clark insists she knew nothing of this plan. She tabled the investigation report, and then announced that the B.C. Liberal Party had written a $70,000 cheque to the government to cover the estimated cost of the inappropriate political work done by non-political staff. Here’s the part taxpayers may not fully appreciate. There are authorized political staffers all over the legislature, in the premier’s office, the opposition leader’s office and two teams of caucus employees who spend much of their time digging up dirt on the other party. All are paid by you and me. A line is crossed only when a non-political employee such as a ministry communications director acts on behalf of the party. The main offender in that capacity was one Brian Bon-

ney, whose records suggested he spent half of his time on party work. He quit in February, before the plan was leaked, and the party paid back half of his salary for the 18 months he was on the public payroll. NDP outrage over this was blunted by another leaked document. This one was from a never-released 2010 report by Auditor General John Doyle, which condemned a five-year program of skimming money from NDP constituency office budgets all over the province and using it for political work. In a nice bit of symmetry, much of the more than $400,000 was spent to put three-time candidate Gabriel Yiu on the NDP caucus payroll. Yiu’s Vancouver-Fraserview candidate page boasts of his ethnic outreach work, which included tirelessly warning B.C.’s Chi-

A Tradition of Sound Advice

Hiawatha decision critical to its residents BRENT EILERS To the editor: My name is Sandy Campbell and I live in Hiawatha Mobile Home Park. I am currently the head of the Hiawatha Owners Group. We are the remaining owners who have not yet sold to the developers, Westcorp Properties. This is a prepared statement that we intend to present to clarify our situation at the public hearing on Tuesday March 26. I left Kelowna on Saturday, March 9, to go to Alberta on a family matter. At that time there were no development signs in front of our park. We had received no notice that we would be the subject of rezoning at the city council meeting on Monday, March 11. I was informed of the meeting by friends and was told that the rezoning had passed first reading. o say I was surprised was an understatement. As a committee we had received legal advice to go to city hall for clarification of their rezoning policy 229 that applies to

our situation. In response to this, I requested and had two meetings with Mayor Walter Gray in April and in June of 2012. We discussed many aspects of the struggles we have as owners in a park where a future development is planned. I brought to Mayor Gray’s attention a number of things that are contrary to what have been published, and stated that I was there to meet face to face to deal with these things instead of fighting a battle in the media. We discussed City of Kelowna Policy 229 regarding city rezoning requirements before they will grant rezoning to a developer. At the end of both meetings, I requested that Mayor Gray discuss this policy with city council and then let us know how they plan to interpret and implement it in our case. He said he would do that. This policy was adopted by our city originally in 1993 and was reviewed in November 2008 and states: “Policy established because of concern for people be-

ing displaced when redevelopment of mobile home park sites.” This means it was put in place for our protection. Policy 229 also states, and I quote: “That any rezoning of existing mobile home parks where non-CSA approved or older mobile or manufactured homes are located, will not be considered for rezoning until a viable relocation plan for affected units is in place.” This places the responsibility of our protection in the hands of our city council. After our meetings last year, I believed that Mayor Gray or someone from council would honour my request for clarification before the rezoning process began. On Tuesday March 12, 2013, I sent an email to Mayor Gray with cc’s to city councillors, detailing our meetings last year and my requests regarding policy 229, and expressing my disappointment at not being contacted before the rezoning process began. I also requested another meeting with Mayor Gray

and two councillors this week at a time that was suitable for them. I arrived home from Alberta on Tuesday, March 19, and saw the development signs posted at Hiawatha Park for the first time. There was a brown envelope outside on my porch, left there by Westcorp Developers some time after I left Kelowna 10 days earlier. Today, more than one week later, I have had no response from Mayor Gray. Three out of eight councillors have connected with me. I believe my efforts have been honourable and that they deserve a response. On Tuesday, March 26, we, the Hiawatha owners, will make our presentation at the public rezoning hearing. We are fighting for our financial survival in our retirement years. This is a really big thing for us. We are counting on our city council to honour the intent of the policy and to ensure that we are treated fairly. Sandy Campbell, Kelowna

Ambulance attendants show consideration, care Good Care from A10 that took her to the emergency, because my mom was in such pain, and we didn’t know how long she had left. One of the paramedics saw how fragile my mother was and told me privately that she didn’t have much time. It

was hard to hear that but I was glad she told me. It was then that I called other family members to come see my mother ASAP, as we didn’t know how much longer she had. We were at the emergency for several hours, and right before my mother got transferred to a room

in the hospital, the same paramedic who told me that she didn’t have much time came back to the emergency to see how we (my sister, and mother and I) were doing. The fact that she came back about three hours later to check up on us was absolutely amazing. We were defin-

itely overwhelmed by the love and care we received form the paramedics. My mother passed away five days after, in peace. God bless her. I hope the Kelowna Ambulance Care people see this letter in hopes that the special paramedics who helped my mother

know how thankful my sister and I are for your extraordinary service. I’m sure if they read this letter they will know who they are. I know my mother gives so much thanks from above too. Denise Pillott, Kelowna

Parking a disservice at Kelowna General Hospital To the editor: Kelowna General Hospital (KGH) and Interior Health Authority (IHA) have attempted to separate themselves entirely from their parking woes. If you have a problem at a parking money station, there are no options. You are given a business card to a company which has no concern about parking meter problems unless they fall within their business hours. On Saturday, March

16, while visiting my daughter and her newborn, I attempted to use my credit card to purchase the ticket to display in my car. It took my money (confirmed later on my credit card account) but no ticket was issued. I took the time, my time, to go into the hospital to advise them and all they did was give me a business card of Impark, the firm that manages their parking lots. I attempted to call

them with no success and then wrote a note and put it on display on my dash, with their business card. Still, I received a ticket with a fine so, while their complaint department was closed the ticketers were obviously not off-duty. In the hospital during my visit, I heard that many complaints about the same company were common in regards to the KGH parking. Upon my return home, my husband said he too had problems get-

Constituency funds not for party Fletcher from A10 nese community about the evils of the harmonized sales tax. In fact, it was the NDP-Yiu operation that inspired a B.C. Liberal copycat plan. The NDP quietly stopped the budget skimming after Doyle pointed out the blindingly obvious, which is that con-

stituency funds are to serve constituents and are not to be diverted to political organizing. It was kept under wraps by the secretive Legislative Assembly Management Committee. This is the B.C. Liberal-NDP co-managed trough of undocumented MLA expenses and other questionable payments that Doyle has

only recently dragged into the light. Both of these schemes have the same stink. Both are intentional abuse of taxpayers’ money for the political gain of the dominant parties. There is no moral high ground for either of them. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press. tfletcher@blackpress.ca

ting a ticket, and only after several attempts did the machine work at all, even with cash (it would not accept a loonie). This is not the first time that we have had problems with this company and we have had to put a letter on file at our credit reporting agencies disputing their claims of non-payment, of bills we do not owe. A hospital is an institution associated with

family distress. For IHA, KGH and the province to off-load their responsibility of parking onto a company with questionable standards is just another example of their attitude of: To hell with the people. This is a KGH/IHA problem and they must lay down better rules with the parking company or kick their butts out. Jim Wilson, Kelowna

urtains of white were swept by gusts of wind almost perpendicular to the ground in front of me and I could hear the little ice balls as they clattered against the windows. It was a wild way to welcome in the beginning of spring this week, as wild storms, cold winds, snow and hail vied for attention with thunder and lightening such as is normally only experienced here in mid-summer. Spring storms are not that unusual here, but the cold temperatures this

Judie Steeves week were below normal, just as last Friday’s high temperature was above normal. Then this cold swept in on a remarkable gusty storm. I suppose it’s all part of the package of spring—wild weather.

And, the additional snow being stored at high elevations around the valley might come in very handy as summer’s sun dries out the hillsides and seasonal creeks, just when everyone in the valley wants more water. It’s World Water Day today, so water should be top of mind, whether you’re repairing sprinkler pipes for this summer’s use, going fishing for the day or just having a glass of water from the tap. This valley’s very lucky to have a group of dedicated people from all walks of life who are committed to water and ensuring there will be enough that is of high enough quality that your

children will survive and thrive in this valley. The Okanagan Water Stewardship Council has only been existence for seven years, and I’ve covered as many meetings as possible right from the beginning, becoming more and more impressed as time went on. At issue are not only the quantity of water that’s available, from a semi-desert environment and increasing development, but also the quality, as the Okanagan’s watersheds are used by more and more-varied users, not all of whom are adequately respectful of how they are impacting their own domestic water supplies.

duction options for residents. “The food digester is perfect if you’re looking for a low maintenance alternative to the backyard composter and you don’t need finished compost,” Stewart explained. “ t’s hassle free, even takes pet waste, and unlike the Earth machine takes all types of food waste, including fruit and vegetable scraps, cooked and uncooked meat, fish, bones and dairy products, rice, bread and pasta. The worm cycler is an ideal alternative for condo and apartment dwellers that don’t have the space for a backyard composter.” Stewart adds one-third to one-half of household waste is easily compostable.

Resources for water-wise landscaping I t’s hard to imagine the hot, dry summer when we are still experiencing random snowstorms. However, spring is here and now is the time to get your garden ready to be as drought-proof as possible. This will also make it easier to maintain. The Okanagan Xeriscape Association has many resources, for both new and established landscapes, to assist gardeners to be proactive in drought-proofing. Much of that informa-

I suffer from Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis or JRA...it is not fun at all...I wake up in the morning or in the middle of the night screaming because I am in so much pain. I can’t do gym or even play outside with my friends because of this disease. I have to go to bed at 5:30pm sometimes because my eye hurts and I have a headache. It is not just my joints that hurt, it is my whole body and Kids tease me at school because I go home sick so much and they say that I am faking it, and what they say hurts me so much, that I can’t focus at all. I had this since I was about 3 years old. I am sick and tired of it. My mummy is helping me and all the other kids that have this disease by doing a fund raiser. Please help me, all the kids with this disease, and my wonderful, helping, loving, kind, sharing, beautiful hearted mum with this fund raiser so I can go outside and play with my friends, and stop the hurting for me and all the other kids.

Even though I can’t directly do anything myself the cure it, I feel great knowing that I can contribute my time and resources available to me for the research to one day find a cute.” Danielle MacDonald, Kelowna

Kelowna Minor Hockey, parents of female hockey players and B.C. Hockey are teaming up to try and increase the number of girls playing minor hockey in Kelowna and across the Okanagan. A committee is being formed to come up with some new ideas as to how to increase the number of girls entering minor hockey, with the hopes of establishing female only teams at lower levels, as opposed to the current situation, where many girls play on boys’ teams, especially for the first few years of minor hockey. “We as associations have to start looking at the grassroots levels and saying let’s get more girls out there and get them playing on all-girls teams,” said Cathy Carolei, BC Hockey’s female development coordinator for the Okanagan. “We have to start at the younger levels and trying to get the little ones out from the get-go and building these teams so we don’t run into a deficit situation in certain

years.” According to Carolei, one of the things associations are battling is a myth that many parents believe that female players are better off playing with boys and will develop better. But Carolei says when girls play on a boys’ team, there are things that the player misses out on, and a better situation would have girls playing on allgirls teams from the time they enter minor hockey. “The myth is that girls will play harder and stronger if the parents leave them with the boys,” said Carolei. “But it would be just as good and probably better in the long term to have girls playing together. They develop differently than boys and they don’t have the same physical strength as a boy. When they are on boys’ teams they have to dress in a different dressing room and they don’t get that camaraderie in the room before and after games and practices.” There are about 250 females registered in the different minor hockey associations across the Oka-

There is a movement underway to attract more girls to hockey in the Okanagan. nagan Mainline Amateur Hockey Association. Carolei says their goal is to double that number in two years. One of the things that OMAHA will embark on is an educational campaign, letting parents know of the opportunities that playing hockey provides to females. Many

scholarships are available in both Canada and the US for high level athletes. This year at UBC, the women’s team featured three graduates from Kelowna Minor Hockey, playing on scholarships. “Looking long term, if we want our kids to be the best of the best and want them to play at university

of national level, we need our kids to be developing through the system and starting at a young age,” said Carolei. “People don’t realize girls can get full ride scholarships. It’s a huge opportunity that people are just not aware of.” In Kelowna the steering committee on girls

hockey is also hoping to talk to parents of young girls to educate them on minor hockey and will host a come and play hockey initiative to explain all of the options in the coming months. “We want to have a discussion with parents about why it’s beneficial for your daughter to

play female hockey,” said Carolei. If you want more information about female hockey you can contact your local minor hockey association. In Kelowna e-mail admin@kelmha. com, in West Kelowna e-mail westsideminorhockey@shaw.ca.

Rockets not looking past underdog Seattle Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

On paper, it’s a mismatch. Just don’t expect the Kelowna Rockets to be mesmerized by the numbers on the eve of their WHL opening round playoff series with the Seattle Thunderbirds. The Rockets (52-163-1), seeded second in the Western Conference, finished 50 points ahead of the seventh-seeded Thunderbirds (24-37-7-3)

during the regular season. Kelowna took three of four regular season meetings, outscoring the T’Birds 18-8. However, Seattle did win once at home, while pushing the Rockets to overtime in the other meeting. It was a vastly different story at Prospera Place where the Rockets dominated in 8-0 and 4-1 wins. While the Rockets are understandably considered the heavy favourites, head coach Ryan Huska insists that will

have no bearing on the way his club prepares for or treats its first-round opponent. “We’ve never been a team that’s looked at things that way, this is a whole new season,” said Huska. “Seattle’s a team that played us hard all year and we’re expecting them to do the same. They have a lot of talent in their group up front, some good young defencemen and a solid goaltender, so when you come to this time of the year what happens be-

forehand is washed away. You have to be sharp and focused for Game 1.” Game 1 of the bestof seven series goes Friday at Prospera Place, with Game 2 set for Saturday. Games 3 and 4 will be played next Tuesday and Wednesday in Kent, Wash. While the Rockets roll four lines and count on scoring from each, the Thunderbirds rely generally on one line for offence, which includes 30goal scorer Roberts Lips-

bergs. The T’Birds are also a relatively young team, with four 17-year-olds on defense. Due to Kelowna’s depth at all positions, Seattle head coach Steve Konowalchuk admits the Thunderbirds are facing a tough climb against their first round opponent. “The main thing is that our guys go out and have fun,” said Konowalchuk. “It’s a new experience for a lot of them, we’re a pretty young team.

“Kelowna has a very deep team, they’ve had a very good year, they compete hard and everybody chips in,” he added. “We have to make sure each of our lines competes against each of theirs, that we be physical and finish our checks. We have our work cut out for us.” While Rockets captain Colton Sissons will be sidelined for the next eight to 12 weeks with an upper body injury, 20-year-old forward JT Barnett will return to the lineup for the

start of the post-season. Barnett missed the final game of the regular season due to illness. whenderson @kelownacapnews.com

Tier 1 and Tier 4 midget Rockets are B.C. champions

Kelowna Minor Hockey teams claimed two provincial championships this week as the midget tier 1 Rockets and the midget tier 4 Rockets both won provincial championship banners with exciting victories in their respective tournaments. In Abbotsford, the Kelowna midget tier 1 team had a 4-and-1 record through the round robin portion of the tournament before coming up against Langley in what turned out to be a tight championship game on Wednesday night. Langley went up 1-0 on a power play goal in the second period and would hold onto its 1-0 lead into the third. But Austin Lindsay fired home the game tying goal on a Kelow-

na power play in the third period and the back and forth game would eventually go to overtime. With just 10 seconds remaining in overtime, Kelowna’s Ryan Lawson jumped on a rebound in front of the Langley net and back-handed home the winning goal. “I didn’t think the hockey gods were going to be with us,” said head coach Eric Blais. “We were controlling the play but we were hitting posts and couldn’t score. But the guys played very well. They just never stopped working and we found a way to win.” Blais credited the group of Kelowna players as being one of the easiest to coach in his long run as a minor hockey coach and said it was an amaz-

ing year that included four tournament wins and a solid effort at the Kelowna elite midget tournament. “It would have been very disappointing not to win provincials because of the year we had,” he said. “We had an incredible year. It was a pretty special feeling to win.” ••• The Kelowna midget tier 4 Jr. Rockets are also provincial champions after an undefeated trip to Lilloet. Kelowna earned three wins a tie to advance to the championship game of the tier 4 provincials in the Fraser Canyon, before coming up against Burns Lake in the final, a team that was 4-0 entering the championship game. The final featured great hockey, great goal-

tending and superb action as Lilloet fans packed into its arena to close out the eight team event. Mitchell Cobbett opened the scoring in the first period for Kelowna on an assist by Markus Glowacki before Parker Armstrong scored unassisted in second period to give Kelowna a 2-0 lead. From there it was Kelowna netminder Kevin Makasoff who shut the door as Burns Lake pushed to get back into the game but couldn’t get the puck past the Kelowna goaltender. Both teams played a well disciplined

game which was enjoyed by the spectators. In other provincial hockey results: The West Kelowna Warriors bantam tier 2 team came close to winning the tier 2 provincials, hosted by Kelowna at the Capital News Centre. After beating Trail 4-3 in a nail-biter in the semifinal, West Kelowna and Juan de Fuca battled into double-overtime in an excellent, back and forth and intense championship game. Phil Isreal and Riley Thorpe scored for West Kelowna but it was Juan de Fuca’s Tyler Preziuso,

who scored his hat trick goal in double OT, who played the hero. West Kelowna earned the silver medal after a 3-1-1 tournament while the host Kelowna Jr. Rockets struggled to a 1-3 record. • Kelowna was 2-21 and tied for third at the bantam tier 4 provincials in Houston with one its losses coming to eventual tournament champion Vanderhoof. In its final tournament game against host Houston, Kelowna exploded for a 9-0 win to end the event on a positive note. • In West Kelowna,

the midget tier 2 Warriors were 3-2 overall but lost its last two games, including the bronze medal game 9-6 to Aldergrove on Wednesday, dropping a fast-paced and end to end game to close out their provincials. Penticton defeated Vancouver 4-2 in the championship final. • At the peewee tier 4 provincials in Grand Forks, Kelowna was 3-11 through the round robin portion of the event, the third best record in the seven team tournament. Results from the final day of competition were unavailable at deadline.

Dojos have eye on Olympics

Four members of the Taneda Karate Dojo participated in the 2013 Karate Canada National Championships in Toronto from March 15 to 17 competing against competitors from across the country to compete for spots on Canada’s national Karate team. Karate is one of five sports trying to get into the 2020 Olympic Games. In the future the karate nationals would be the first step for qualifying for the Olympics. Here is a look at how the local competitors performed. • Jackson Tribe was competing in his second nationals had an amazing tournament. He breezed through his first three efights on his way to the final only giving up one -point against him along the way. In the final he had 5a very tough fight against a competitor from Ontario but Tribe held on and managed to win his first National Title becoming the second person from the Taneda Karate Dojo in the last two years to win gold at the National Championships. • Avneet Kaloty was also competing in her second nationals and fought her way through three very tough fights on her way to the finals. In the final she fought very hard against the defending Canadian champion but had to settle for the sil-

Kaloty qualified for the National Team and can represent Canada at upcoming events like the North America Cup in Mexico and the Junior Pan-American Championships in Columbia. • Sukhresh Kaloty was competing in his fourth nationals and first in the Under-21 age category. He had a very strong tournament, opening by winning his first fight convincingly. In his second match Kaloty ran into a strong competitor from Ontario, losing his second match. In the repechage (second chance) bracket Kaloty started fighting very well. He won his first match and then matched up against a tough fighter from Quebec. The fight remained 0-0 for the majority of the fight until Kaloty was able to take down the Quebec fighter and score with two seconds left on the clock. Kaloty then fought a fellow

B.C. Team member in the match that would have put him back into the final. He would lose that fight but win the bronze medal, qualifying him for the National Team and where he can represent Canada at the North America Cup in Mexico. • Will Wright competed in his first National Championships in a very tough division and a tough draw. Wright lost to the eventual gold medalist in his first fight. In the repechage he won two fights before losing to the eventual silver medalist, placing him fifth. The four athletes from the Taneda Karate Dojo were part of the 72 members from Karate BC that competed at the Nationals along with BC team coach Mike Ditson. The BC Team was in top form winning 17 Gold, 12 Silver and 20 Bronze. The 17 Gold medals is believed to be a Karate BC record.

Thompson Okanagan Football Club teams continued to play road games at the start of their seasons as a couple of TOFC clubs were in Coquitlam last weekend to play the Vancouver Island Wave. And both the Under-13 girls and the Under-14 boys from TOFC suffered 1-0 losses to the Wave. Last Sunday the TOFC U-13 girls played very well against the Vancouver Island squad, carrying most of the play and maintaining plenty of ball possession. Unfortunately, they were unable to capitalize on a few good scoring opportunities and fell 1-0. The Under-14 boys suffered the same fate with a 1-0 loss as the only goal was scored on a penalty kick that keeper Carl Vanderkraats was unable to save. Despite several good attempts, TOFC was unable to tie the game. TOFC now has the next couple of weekends off and teams resume play on April 13 and 14.

Contagious infections can lead to eye irritation symptoms

I

f you suddenly notice that your pet is pawing at its eye, and squints or has a discharge from one or both of its eyes, then your pet likely has an eye infection. There are few common abnormalities in pets eyes. Bacterial or viral infections are typically accompanied by redness of the tissue around the eye-

pet with other pets till the condition has resolved. Another common reason for an eye infection is a traumatic event. A playful/aggressive wrestling between pets, especially if a cat is involved, may result in a traumatic scratch of the eye. The specific part of the eye to take the damage is the outer clear layer situated in the frontal eyeball, called the cornea. A damage of the corneal integrity is called corneal ulcer. The severity of the ulcer depends on its depth. However, it is important to treat any corneal ulcer due to the potential of worsening of the condition, that can lead to the eye perforation and permanent loss of vision. This type of infection usually involves only one eye. The integrity of the cornea is checked by a specific eye stain called Fluorescein stain. This neon green stain is placed in the eyes and then washed away with water. In the next step, the examiner looks at the eyes in a dark room, using an

ultraviolet light source. If there is a corneal ulcer, the stain will not get washed in that particular area of the ulcer. A corneal ulcer is a serious condition that has to be diagnosed and treated accordingly. Some eye medications are very contraindicated to use in case of an ulcer. Hence, it is extremely important to check the corneal integrity before using some eye medications. Never use eye medication without consulting with your vet first. The treatment of a corneal ulcer depends on the circumstances. Some ulcers can be treated simply by eye drops. Other cases may involve more complicated measures that may even include a surgical procedure of temporarily suturing the pet’s third eyelid on top of the cornea, so it will physically cover and protect it, and help with its healing. A normal eye is a moist eye. Dry eye, or in its professional name keratoconjunctivitis sicca, is a condition in which the tear gland does not pro-

duce sufficient amount of tears. This condition leads to dryness of the eyes. The tears are very important part of the eyes protection. Lack of tears result in inflammation and ulcers. The condition is diagnosed easily by measuring the tear production by using a special paper placed in the eye. This test is done when the animal is awake, and only takes a minute or two. The treatment is more complicated though, and involved a life long eye medication. Glaucoma is a condition in which the pressure inside of the eyeball increases. Beside being very painful, this condition is serious. If not treated appropriately, it may result in the loss of the affected eye. Glaucoma is diagnosed by measuring the internal pressure of the eyeball with a special instrument. Not all veterinarians have this instrument, so a referral to an ophthalmologist may be required. In addition, an eye ultrasound can aid in

diagnosing the reason for the elevated pressure. The pets anatomy can also play an important role in its tendency to develop eye issues. Floppy lower eyelids in certain breeds (such as basset hounds, boxers, etc.) usually leads to chronic eye infections. A skin fold around the nose, typical to dogs with a “squashed face,” such as Pugs or Persian cats, can cause chronic irritation of the cornea by the fur. Inverted eyelids also cause chronic irritation. The anatomical factors that cause eye infections are treated with corrective surgeries. As well, many breeds pose specific hereditary conditions. If you notice any abnormality in your pet’s eyes, do not be tempted to buy over the counter medication, or use some drug you have at home. It is always much safer to consult your veterinarian for a proper eye diagnosis.       Moshe Oz operates the Rose Valley Veterinary Hospital in West Kelowna, 2476 Westlake Rd. 250-769-9109

Acting gives seniors a platform to have fun, learn Witty, creative, off the cuff and never the same. For a group of actors with little to no previous experience on stage, STAGE-ING MATTERS, seems to have taken to improv theatre like butter to bread. The group of “gerry actors,” as they affectionately refer to themselves, are all retired, all interested in pushing themselves to try new things and are the bread-and-butter for a new acting teacher in town, Ruth Bieber, who will combine their next public performance with her own book launch. “I was made to promise they wouldn’t have to memorize any scripts,” said Bieber, shortly after a dress rehearsal at the Dorchester Retirement Residence wrapped up midweek. Bieber will be recognizable to the Okanagan arts community already as she curated Just Imagine: An exhibition of works by blind and vision impaired artists at the Kelowna Art Gallery this winter, and had her own exhibit at the Rotary Centre for the Arts. Her book is titled Disability Theatre from the Inside Out, and delineates her exploration of art and disability and what she learned in the 17 years she owned the Inside Out

Theatre Company in Calgary, training actors with a wide range of abilities and disabilities. There are actors in the ST-AGE-ING MATTERS troupe who might fit this description. One woman is blind, a few have hearing aides and, as their skits showcase, they are all bravely facing a challenging phase of life, dotted with health issues and ultimately capped by the end of life. This is also a group with centuries of material to draw on and the performance showcases the kind of intelligent humour one builds with life experience. From the grandmothers toasting to good health and good sex to “the man”, Dave, who can’t seem to find a date to save his life (or himself from the doldrums of being a widow), the performance of Acting Out Our Issues rolls along with little giggles and an air of enjoyment no doubt inspired by the fact the actors appear to be having the time of their lives. “We’re still living and learning about getting old,” explained Vera Ito, out-going president of the Society for Learning in Retirement. “Seniors have very full lives…And performing is really wonderful because it brings them

THE CHARACTER DAVE gets some dating advice specifically for seniors from the dating coach he’s hired in Acting Out Our Issues, a play from ST-AGE-ING MATTERS. into that elite domain of the theatre, which normally takes training and is a sort of closed community.” Ito and Bieber applied to run the program through the society via a

New Horizons For Seniors Program grant from Human Resources and Skills Development Canada and say the program has been a wild success. Bieber knows how to show people how to push

their own boundaries and is constantly doing so herself. Aside from running her own theatre company, she also raised a family and, when the nest was empty, took off to New

York to pursue life as an artist in one of the creative epicentres of the world; she doesn’t let her lack of vision hold her back. Described as both intuitive and intellectual, she is a barrel of laughs

to watch as she uses her whole body to get everyone in the spirit of the theatre, bobbing around on the sideline. Penny Cash, a retired nurse and academic, who was given the theatre workshop that lead to STAGE-ING MATTERS as a birthday gift said she believes the work she is doing is incredibly important for breaking down stereotypes of aging and providing an avenue for seniors to fully participate in society. “It’s wonderful. It’s gentle, thoughtful, thought-provoking and confidence building,” she said. She was very impressed with how the workshops initiated conversations that got people sharing their concerns and flushing out issues on aging. And yet, from an audience perspective, the overall effect of the final performance is just plain entertaining. To catch the next act of ST-AGE-ING MATTERS Acting Out Our Issues anyone is welcome to attend the book launch for Bieber’s Disability Theatre from the Inside Out on April 20 in the Kelowna Art Gallery. Copies of the book will be on hand, or one can email Bieber at ruth@playwithperspective.com.

Grohl documents music studio with CD, ‘recorded for the film’ SOUND CITY REAL TO REEL: (RCA) Sound City was an infamous recording studio in Los Angeles where literally hundreds of albums were recorded including platinum selling, classic

and breakthrough albums from the likes of Tom Petty, Fleetwood Mac, Rick Springfield, Pat Benetar, Foreigner, Nirvana and many more. The Sound City studios closed down a couple of years ago due

to the shifting needs of the recording industry— in that there are thousands of home recording units now—while David Grohl of The Foo Fighters has made a documentary film about these same fabled studios. In fact

when Sound City closed, Grohl purchased its mixing board and so grew even greater his love of the music made at Sound City including the game changing Nirvana album Nevermind. Of course, Grohl was

the drummer for Nirvana and it is ironic too that the Seattle grunge rock scene was broken open so widely from a Los Angeles studio that caused a sea change in musical direction re: all hair metal bands immediately

gels is a Trent Reznor (NIN) project along with his singing spouse Mariqueen Maandig and tech wizards Atticus Ross and Rob Sheridan. How To Destroy Angels takes its name from the first Coil single and an early ’80s act that also dabbled in experimental electronic music. Much of this album expands (or contracts) Reznors obsessions with angst, disillusionment, betrayal, disaffection and existential fantods where a tune like On The Wing might be inspired by Sam

Beckett with the lyrics “I don’t believe in anything, all alone we wait” which makes for bemused navel gazing. However, the soundscapes and psychoscapes here often belie the desperation and malaise with mellow, hypnotic sounds and vocals that are often whispered intonations. If you are looking for a seemingly meditative rumination on metamorphosis (or cancer?) here it is. I’d rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.

THE SAPPHIRES: SOUNDTRACK (COLUMBIA) This film from Australia opens this week in Canada. It was a blockbuster in Oz and is based on a true story about four Aboriginal sisters who toured Viet Nam as part of a soul music revue in 1968. The film is getting good notices here and is being compared to an Oz Dream Girls. The soundtrack is lengthy with many ’60s

soul remakes by Jessica Mauboy who was a highly placed contestant from The Voice Australia. Mauboy is a solid and charming singer and this CD soundtrack isn’t too different from The Commitments album that did fine business a couple of decades ago. If you like the film, you will want to check out this pleasing soundtrack that features Oz The Voice runner up Darren Percival as well. C mooseman19@telus.net

Defining the true meaning of leadership I ’ve enjoyed several insightful, interesting conversations with people since last week’s column on leadership, and in particular the three political leaders involved in our upcoming provincial election. Ironically, while much of that column and subsequent conversations focused on what constitutes true leadership, a social event Wednesday reminded me of what true leadership is not. Double ironic—the inspiration was once again where the discussion originally began—Premier Christy Clark. On Wednesday night, Clark took advantage of an invitation extended to her as premier to trump out her party’s political platform. Real leadership often involves a sense of wisdom and decorum, a display of recognition that with power comes the ability and brains to not abuse it. Christy failed Wednesday. Not only did she ramble on at far greater length than good taste would dictate at the Kelowna Chamber of Commerce’s regular monthly After 5 social, but she shoved her feet in her mouth with her somewhat arrogant analogy of what it means to be a good government as being akin to being a good parent. Clark first mistook the gathering of business people as a political rally and then proceeded to trod on thin ice in suggesting no parent worth their salt would leave this world with one of their children facing financial hardship. Several examples of true leadership were presented to me this past week by others, including a few B.C. and Kelowna politicians, past and present. Two of them mentioned examples of leadership I personally witnessed revolving around former Kelowna mayor Sharon Shepherd. One of the criticisms about Shepherd during the last civic election campaign, that she lacked leadership and was too soft. Those comments were made not only by the general public but even by some elected officials from the ‘inner circle.’ This week, though, two of them mentioned that one of their personal highlights in the world of politics was watching with awe at the composure and class in which Shepherd conducted herself during a nasty, ugly, election campaign conducted by others. I must agree. The past civic election in Kelowna was marred by the classless conduct of some, with mega money and energy spent in negative campaigning. Much of the abuse was thrown at Shepherd; however, she never lowered herself to their level or took cheap shots back. A number of times while on council, I watched Madam Mayor comment on decisions made by council that she had actually not supported. She never shirked her role or took the easy route by suggesting she had not supported or agreed with the decision. She simply and quietly delivered the message and took the criticism. That’s a leader. There are a plethora of other displays of leadership to choose from in the world aside from politics. There are leaders in crisis and war, in business, sports, faith, non-profit societies and organizations. I’m reminded of coaches, teachers, mentors, even boss-

es who not only helped me through the day, but through my life. Recently a bright and personable businessman has provided some shining examples of real Charlie leadership. Peter Comrie, of Hodge Rapid Time Network and Full Spectrum Leadership, has become a new friend to me. Comrie has waterfall wisdom. I visit his Full Spectrum website regularly. Here are a few gems from it: “Great leaders create a vibrant culture, infusing the desire and drive to excel.” “They go to the truth. Leaders are not born, they are coached, they are developed, they are trained, and they take 100 per cent responsibility for the entire life experience.” “Full Spectrum Leadership is a practice as well as a philosophy. At this time in this new century, ‘change’ is the only constant that we can absolutely be sure of, and yet, most people continue to resist this most evident of realities. At Full Spectrum Leadership Inc. it is our stated intention to work with selected clients who are committed to taking 100 per cent responsibility for their entire life experience, finding the win/win in all life conditions, and dropping fear-based reactionism in favour of Love-Based Leadership.”  “Full Spectrum leaders shape their own futures in a pro-active and engaged manner. They commit to living with higher levels of values, ethics, integrity, responsibility, and subscribing to the principle of ‘each day in every way, getting better, and better, and better.’” Well said, Peter. Most important for me, the real value of leadership is never better utilized than when we see it displayed in conjunction with helping children or young people in our world. I recently watched a charming ballet performance by Mission Dance at the Mary Irwin Theatre prior to a concert. The dance intro was brief, but well done, entertaining, and somewhat poignant. Joy and pride oozed out of the youngsters involved on stage; their pleasure was obvious and the audience ate it up. What struck me as really at play in that moment, however, was not the quality of the dance or the dancers, not the reality of how many of the dancers would move forward to a lifetime career on stage, or what accolades they or the ballet school would receive. What counted was the lesson of life played out upon that stage, the example of real leadership being instilled into ballet shoes and tights. Instructor Tanya Bakala had given her students much, much more than just a dance routine to learn and perfect. She had helped instill a sense of confidence, work ethic, determination, team work, perseverance, and accountability to her young students.  Clearly Bakala had shown remarkable leadership by arming her trusting students with the kinds of life tools that each of them will need in order to move forward as happy, healthy human beings in this marvellous but sometimes menacing world. And that, my friends, is real leadership.

SNORING?

As recommended by Dr. Gifford-Jones M. D.

SLEEP APNEA?

Loose muscles

in the throat cause snoring, also interrupted breathing and gasping for air (sleep apnea), which brings on being tired all day, need for napping, high blood pressure, strokes, heart attacks, irregular heart beat. Read below how Bell helps thousands, usually first night, inexpensively, with no side effects. Greatly improves quality of life and saves marriages. Survey says 48% snore and 75% are suffering if you include the silent suffering partners. To my surprise, after taking BellSound Sleep #23 I really didn’t snore or gasp for air anymore.

Karen Braun, 67, Glace Bay, NS < For 20 years I was waking up frequently gasping for air. During the day I would start napping every time I would sit down, because I was tired. Since #23 taking Bell #23 sleeping 6 hours is heaven. It made a substantial change in my life. Mary C. Myrick, 62, Jackson, MS <It is such a joy not having to use the CPAP machine. I have had sleep apnea for 10 years. Using Bell#23, my wife says there is no more snoring or stoppage of breathing.

You will be overjoyed with the results. Wayne Burse, 63, Beamsville, ON. < Lost my husband because of sleep apnea in 2011. I had sleep apnea, too.

VILLA LE SCALE on the Island of Capri, Italy. Capri is an island in the Tyrrhenian Sea off the Sorrentine Peninsula, on the south side of the Gulf of Naples in the Campania region of Italy. VILLA LE SCALE/CONTRIBUTOR

On the Isle of Capri, everyone knows your name John Bordsen CONTRIBUTOR

What’s it like to live in a far-off place most of us see only on a vacation? Foreign Correspondence is an interview with someone who lives in a spot you may want to visit. Vincent Copeland, 51, is general manager of the Villa Le Scale (www.villalescale.com), in the town of Anacapri on the Italian island of Capri. The New York native has been there 10 years. Copeland lives in Rome during the October-Easter off-season. Q: Capri is off the coast from Naples but must seem quite different from that bustling city. A: Absolutely. I had gone to school in the north—Florence and Milan—and had only been to southern Italy once, to see Pompeii. I had no idea what it was like when I got off the plane.

 ✈

Delivering an experience of a lifetime every time.

I found a completely different culture from northern Italy. But I became used to it and appreciate Capri for what it is—a small island with only 11,000 people perched on a rock in the middle of the sea. Coming from New York, that took some getting used to. In Capri, everyone knows who you are. Capri has two different faces: There are a limited number of rooms, but when you get 25,000 visitors per day, things change radically. When the day visitors leave by 4:30 or 5 p.m., Capri becomes a very different animal. At night, Capri becomes small-town Italy, with that sort of charm and feel. It’s very upscale—not that the town is, but the clientele is. It has a sort of laid-back glamour at night, but doesn’t feel tourist-y. Q: Where is your boutique hotel? A: There are two towns on the island—Capri

town and where we are, Anacapri. Our main house dates to about 1810 but the kitchen and cantina actually started in the 17th century. Our grounds were originally vineyards. It doesn’t have an urban feel. Walk in the front gate and you have no idea you’re in the middle of town. Villas on Capri are constructed that way. Q: What do day tourists do on Capri? A: Everybody wants to see the villa where (Swedish psychiatrist) Axel Munthe lived. They come to see Capri town. They come to see the Faraglioni rocks, the formations that inspired Scylla and Charybdis from “The Odyssey.” They come, of course, to go to the Blue Grotto—a one-of-a-kind experience. You enter a cave that’s sort of invisible from the outside; you have to lie down inside a special boat to get into it. Inside, the grotto light is an incredible blue.

There was a temple inside the grotto from when Roman Emperor Tiberius lived on Capri. Q: And over-nighters? A: On average they stay about five nights and are here to soak up Capri, which is a luxury European destination like Saint-Tropez or Portofino. There are incredible beach clubs—but no real beach: You dive into the sea from rock formations. They soak up the sun. Afternoons, they relax in La Piazzetta—the Piazza Umberto I— which is lined with cafes and bars. It’s a meeting place where sometimes you can find people from all over the world. This makes for great people-watching. Q: Capri means “Island of Goats.” Are there goats?

Only goat on Capri gets walked to the grocery each day Capri from A32 A: There’s a rather eccentric lady who walks her goat through the center of town like a dog when she goes to the grocery store. Other than that, I haven’t seen a goat. Q: Is there much nowadays in the way of history or archaeology? A: I was very taken by a walk to the top of Monte Solaro, the highest point of the island, where you can see all along Italy’s Amalfi Coast. There’s a monastery up there that was built in the 14th century. I’ve never encountered anything like it.

art history lover, it’s a fantastic thing to do. In the center of Anacapri, a church called

San Michele has a glazed, hand-painted tile floor that depicts the Garden of Eden. You can go

up to the choir loft, look down and see the Garden of Eden as written in the Bible. It’s amazing.

I was just about to pull away from the gas station after filling up when I heard a ‘tap, tap, tap’ on my side window. I put the window down and the man outside said to me with a smile, “You know, I just have to tell you, I really like the Murano and that is the nicest looking one I have ever seen. The colour is spectacular!” I thanked him and chuckled to myself because just seconds before as I was walking back to the vehicle I had been admiring the colour myself. And the man’s com-

ments about the 2013 Nissan Murano LE Platinum edition weren’t the first I had received during my week with it. After he walked away, I sat there for a second and wondered why anyone would buy a plain silver or white-coloured vehicle when they could have a spectacular colour like this called Midnight Garnet. The five-passenger midsize Murano made its debut in 2002 as a 2003 model and at that time it was rather unique in the marketplace. The basic design hasn’t changed much

second generation after a redesign in 2009. While sales in Canada were down about 11 per cent last year over 2011, the Murano continues to

be a solid model for Nissan with sales of 4,300 units last year. Little has changed for 2013 except for a few tweaks here and there and

the addition of technological goodies like moving object detection, lane departure warning and blind spot warning as part of the $3,000 Platinum

Four-wheel independent suspension helps produce a smooth ride, even on rough road surfaces. Because all-wheel drive is standard, fuel economy in the Murano is compromised somewhat. The Natural Resources Canada fuel guide rates the Murano at 11.5L/100 km city and 8.5L/100 km highway.

Toyota’s Avalon H sheds grandpa s t image p l

A STEEPLY RAKED roofline and leaner proportions give the all-new 2013 Avalon a more athletic, sleeker look to match its improved driving dynamics. In this fourth-generation model, Toyota hopes to attract younger buyers.

Neil Moore CONTRIBUTOR

Last time I drove the Avalon, I took a ribbing from friends and colleagues. “Hey gramps, does it come with a Tilley hat?” “Let’s hurry up and grab dinner—wouldn’t want to miss the ‘early bird’ special!” I’m not saying the recent third-generation Toyota flagship was unattractive, but it just screamed ‘retirement.’ A bit like a Buick. But as this aging GM nameplate shed its mushy ride and dated styling for something edgier and more hip across the model range, Toyota has, in similar fashion, updated the ‘Buick’ in its lineup. The all-new 2013 Avalon has been a repositioning exercise by Toyota’s Calty design team, whose goal was to change consumer perceptions of their largest, priciest sedan. And with only a hand-

The electric power steering is also tuned to improve feel, with the system requiring lighter effort at lower speeds, increasing as you plant the pedal. Which is an action that

will shed any preconceptions that Avalon is still an “old man’s” ride. Forget about the “sport” button and ‘S’ position on the gear selector—step hard on the accelerator and you’ll light up the tires. Not that I’m advocating this, nor am I suggesting the typical Ava-

designed by the Calty team, providing a modern take on both form and function. Fitted with the black colour theme, my higher-trim Limited tester was upholstered in a combination of hand-sewn soft-touch materials on the dash panel, premium leather on the seats and matching stitched faux leather in the door panels and armrest, which now has thicker foam for improved comfort. The instrument panel follows suit with a black, brushed aluminum finish including simple, touch-sensitive controls, smoked chrome knobs and accents. The woodgrain insert below is a classy touch. The centre console is creatively topped by more soft touch, with two cupholders trimmed in chrome, and on Limited models, ringed by three-level ambient lighting. This is handy at night when trying to aim your Tim’s double double into the proper receptacle. As you’d expect in a vehicle starting at $36,800 (an 11 per cent price drop for the ‘base’ XLE), the Avalon provides no shortage of standard comforts and tech. This includes dual-zone climate control; leather seating—heated and power adjustable up front, with memory for the driver; tilt/telescopic steering with audio, Bluetooth and multi-info display switches; padDdle shifters; smart key with pushbutton start; nine-speaker audio system with navigation, backup camera and 6.1inch display; moonroof and more. The Limited at $38,900 adds plenty more, but I’ll limit this to 10-way/eight-way power adjust for the front seats (as opposed to eight-way/ four-way driver/passenger in the base model), front seat ventilation, TFT climate control panel, blind spot monitoring and rear

cross-traffic alert. All models get loads of rear seat knee room, and decent headroom, despite the steeply raked roofline. Rear passengers are also treated to separate ventilation (with tri-zone controls if you opt for the Limited package), and a rear armrest that drops to reveal a lockable passthrough from its generous 453-litre trunk. The Avalon’s passenger cabin is hushed, but not entirely insulated from its surrounds. Which is a good thing, as I like to feel some connection to the road below. Its new platform is more rigid and the suspension has been tuned to take full advantage. Front Mac struts (with stabilizer bar) and the rear dual-link design handle bumps and potholes with grace, but at the same time allow

All this power is routed to the front wheels through a six-speed automatic transmission, and will take this 1,605 kg (3,538 lb) vehicle from rest to 100 km/h in less than seven seconds. Impressive, but a poor idea if your aim is to achieve somewhere near its 8.3L/100km combined city/hwy rating. For better fuel economy, start by hitting the Eco button—one of three driving modes that include ‘Normal’ and ‘Sport’. Eco blunts the throttle for gentler acceleration, and tweaks the air conditioning for less drain on power. I used it for around 10 minutes, got bored and selected Sport, which sharpens the throttle response and increases

power steering effort for better feel. Sliding the gear selector from ‘D’ to ‘S’ mode, where you can use the stick or paddles for sequential shifting, notched this up. In this position, you get quicker upshifting and throttle blipping on the way down, not to mention the benefits of a faster-locking torque converter. This big front-driver is no sports sedan but it’s a big step up in the overall driving experience. One may argue I’ve spent too little time gushing about the Avalon’s refinement, Lexus-like fit and finish and long-drive comfort, and have focused disproportionally on what’s fun about the new model. But that’s where the old one fell flat. In the 2013 Avalon,

Toyota has ticked all the right boxes to attract the younger buyer. Which may not mean twentyand thirty-somethings, but instead those of us too old for clubbing and still a couple of decades from the seniors’ centre.

MOTORING

Accent raises the entry-level buyer bar

The act of motoring, in nearly every way, is becoming less affordable by the minute. On these pages just over a year ago, Canadian hAutomobile Dealers Association chief economist ,Michael Hatch noted that onew vehicle costs have lheld steady since 1994. And when you factor in inflation, real prices have actually dropped. Involving far less dough than cars of yestermyear, was my tester for the week, the 2013 Hyundai :Accent hatchback. l In the new-generation model, which bowed in 2012 as both sedan -and hatchback, cheap fand cheerful has been replaced with a more so3phisticated vehicle, starting with Hyundai’s sig:nature ‘fluidic sculpture’ styling, which gives the sedan the appearance of its larger, pricier sibling— -the Sonata. But I prefer the look of the five-door hatch, and in this form, the Accent has a sportier, more athletic stance. In particular this is true when riding on the 16-inch alloy wheels, which are standard on my automatic GLS tester (starting price $18,949). The basic model, however, can be had for as little as $13,749 with sixspeed manual. It’s pretty basic transportation. You don’t get air conditioning, power windows or Bluetooth, but it does come with power locks,

six-way adjustable driver’s seat, tilt steering and four-speaker AM/FM/ CD/MP3/USB/iPOD audio system. And of course, a full complement of airbags, along with electronic stability control, traction control, and vehicle stability management. More popular is the mid-level GL that adds air conditioning, power windows, remote keyless entry, split-folding rear bench, cloth door inserts and more storage options like overhead sunglasses holder and centre console box. And for 2013, it even comes with heated front seats. This is one I could easily live with, and at $15,849 with manual (add $1,250 for six-speed automatic); this trim level covers most needs for a daily driver. Except Bluetooth, which if you don’t mind ponying up another $1,850 for the GLS model, also adds automatic climate control, power sunroof, and upgraded 172Watt AM/FM/XM/CD/ MP3 audio system. And as mentioned earlier, 16-inch alloys instead of 14-inch steel rims with wheel covers. Inside, the Accent is more polished, with a quiet interior that benefits from the prodigious use of sound-deadening materials. Other than seat fabrics and door inserts, however, soft-touch materials are at a minimum. But the mix of textures and finishes, and the precise fit of pan-

shOwCAsE ▼ TESORO ARCA

Townhouses with room for toys Wade Paterson STAFF REPORTER

Many like to think of the Okanagan as a giant playground. There are many toys used throughout that playground—RVs, boats, snowmobiles, quads— but storing those extra vehicles is an issue for some. Tesoro Arca has honed in on that niche market with unique townhouses that “keep you and your toys warm.” Dan Dupuis, sales manager of Tesoro Arca, said the 14-by-14-by-50foot oversize garage has been the biggest appeal to buyers. The heated RV garages include a sani-dump, 30-amp RV plug, hot and cold hose bib, drain and an option for a bathroom. Aside from storing all of their “toys,” current owners use their garages as man caves, hairdressing studios and even virtual driving ranges.

And the range of customers is diverse as well. “Everybody’s got different wants and needs,” said Dupuis. “We’ve got Albertans who use it as their getaway place, we’ve got snowbirds and we’ve got younger people who want all of that garage space.” To prevent a lengthy 24-step hike to the main level, each unit is equipped with a 1,000-pound capacity elevator. “With the elevator, people can actually live here the rest of their lives. “When you get older—if your hips and knees start going and you have problems with the stairs—you don’t need to leave.” Tesoro Arca townhouses feature engineered hardwood floors, vaulted ceilings, a natural gas fireplace, a high efficiency furnace, central air, a stacker washer and dryer, a large deck pre-wired for

a hot tub and a natural gas outlet for a barbecue. The kitchen has shaker maple cabinets, granite, four stainless steel appliances and ceramic tile. The interior finishing has been designed with light and airy earth tones. A large ensuite bathroom comes with a custom tile shower and soaker tub. The development currently offers seven different designs ranging from 865 to 2,090 square-feet. Design work is currently being done on a smaller 705 square-foot option. Tesoro Arca is a 99 year pre-paid lease. Prices start at $399,900 for the two-bedroom, 1,530-square foot option; the 2,090-square foot option prices start at $550,000. Seventeen of the 24 available townhouses have been sold, with sales pending on two of the other homes.

Tesoro Arca is walking distance from Two Eagles Golf Course, a short drive from the Gellatly Bay boat launch and is located near several restaurants and shopping centres. Both Dupuis and his business partner— professional builder James Zeleznik of Jazel Homes—have lived and

worked in the area since the 1980s. “We’re a couple of lo-

cal guys, trying to make it work.” Dupuis said he is offering a $2,000 finder’s

fee to anyone who makes a referral that results in the sale of a townhouse. For more information

Think about the positive attributes to your neighbourhood

A

llowing the negative aspects of a slower real estate sales market right now consume our thinking sometimes takes away from “the little things” that attract homeowners to a neighbourhood . My parents have lived in the Ellison area for years now, and I can say that one thing that I love about their neighourhood is not only the quiet and peacefulness that envelops this area, but this gentleman who strolls up and down Old Vernon Road al-

most everyday and every car that passes him, he simply waves. We are all guilty of it from time to time, about recognizing the beauty in our Kelowna neighbourhoods and not just worrying about ‘flipping’ a property or how much latent value it possesses. It’s about where your children will

grow up and the tree forts that they’ll make or that kind man who makes the effort to waves at everyone every morning while on his walk. It’s about seeing Ceinwen good side of every Morgan the neighbourhood. I live in the peaceful golf community of Quail Ridge where the worst part of my day is…

REAL ESTATE RUNDOWN

well, actually there is not worst part. But I didn’t always live in a neighbourhood like Quail Ridge. I grew up in the heart of Rutland. I know there are a couple preconceived notions about that community, but behind the stigma of Rutland you’ll find their academic programs to be some of the best in Kelowna, the many sports fields it has to offer and for me some amazing childhood memories. So take the time to look at the softer side of some of Kelowna’s beauti-

ful neighbourhoods. Put your concerns of the real estate economy on hold and remember that today counts. I encourage you to get outside and help your children build that tree fort, take a moment to feel the warmth of the sun on your face, listen to the birds sing and simply wave to passing motorists.
