AN ARTIST’S rendition of what Bernard Avenue will look like in the summer when the current work is complete.

Kelowna’s perky patio plan approved STAFF REPORTER

The City of Kelowna is offering free rent for several years to those who engage the Bernard Avenue patio program. Once construction of the main streetscape is complete this summer, shop owners will be encouraged to start building their own sidewalk patio spaces and will be given two years of free rent on the space, up front, plus a free permit to operate for the first year. The plan seemed to sit well with city council, as municipal staff presented it Monday afternoon, with the mayor lauding the incredible job the construction workers are doing to keep the entire project on target. “When we went out for lunch today, I just kept saying to my colleagues what a wonderful job they’re doing,” said Mayor Walter Gray. Rent will be based on

location, set by block and charged on a per square foot basis, with those rates set for the activity or use. As such, a business with a liquor licence intending to use the space for food and alcohol service in the 200300 block of Bernard Avenue will be renting for $8.64 per square foot a month by 2017, according to charts issued in the latest council report. In addition, those who build expensive designs will be given a range of breaks on their third year’s rent in order to encourage uptake of the program. However, patios constructed for more than $5,000 will receive a 100 per cent rent reduction and those constructed for $2,500 to $5,000, a 50 per cent rent reduction. The reconstruction of Bernard is a $14-million effort intended to draw more people downtown. It will combine with a new public pier, yacht club, extension of Stuart Park and more boat moorage.

CENTRAL OKANGAN REGIONAL DISTRICT board chairman Robert Hobson was all smiles as CORD announced it has bought two parcels of land, totaling 21 hectares, in order to expand Woodhaven Nature Conservancy Regional Park in the south Mission.

▼ WOODHAVEN REGIONAL PARK

CORD spends $6.9 million to expand park Alistair Waters ASSISTANT EDITOR

The Regional District of Central Okanagan is adding to the size of Woodhaven Nature Conservancy Regional Park in the south Mission area of Kelowna. CORD announced Friday it has bought two pieces of adjoining property—a 3.5 hectare parcel at 969 Raymer Road and a 17.7-hectare lot at 979 Raymer Road— for a total of $6.9 million. The money, from the regional district’s regional parks legacy fund, was

raised from taxpayers with the specific purpose of buying parkland for future protection from development in this area. “Purchasing these important properties helps fulfill out goal of protecting important regional ecosystems for future generations,” said regional district board chairman Robert Hobson. “These additions provide for future expansion of the existing Woodhaven Regional Park, as well as a critical nature corridor connection to the higher elevations of Bellevue Creek.”

In addition to bordering the regional park, the lands also sit adjacent to city-owned park land on the south side of Bellevue Creek. Hobson said the smaller parcel acquired by the regional district should be open to the public later this year and the larger parcel will be opened to the pubic next year. Both will have trails through them. “The public like their parks and they like their trails,” said Hobson following the announcement of the purchase on Friday afternoon.

He said the regional district’s bid for the properties was a project he worked on for several years. The fund used to buy the land was established in 2007 as a special tax requisition from Central Okanagan residents with the aim of raising money to buy parkland. “The creation of, and contributions to, this fund required the vision, cooperation and support of all the regional board members, especially as the economy was facing challenging times,” said Hobson.

“It’s taken a few years but we’re now in a position to start seeing the payoff on that unanimous endeavor on behalf of everyone living in the Central Okanagan.” In addition to the purchases, CORD is also working with UBC Okanagan to develop a unique artistic and cultural partnership to further the Eco-Art initiative started in 2010. Earlier this year, UBC’s artist in residence, Marlene Cretes lead two workshops on the property, which looked at the natural beauty of the heavily forested land.

KELOWNA FIREFIGHTERS work on the roof of notary public Tarja McLean’s office Monday afternoon after a fire damaged part of the building.

Fire damages roof of Cedar Avenue office Wade Paterson STAFF REPORTERS

Tarja McLean stood across the street and watched as fire crews doused a small fire, which started on the roof of her notary office Monday afternoon. Next to her, in a truck, sat several boxes filled with files and clients’ personal information. “The roofers were replacing the roof—they came in and told us that the roof was on fire and we had to get out,” said McLean. McLean, her assistant and four clients were in the building at the time; everyone got out safely. She said they also managed to get the majority of important documents out of the office. According to platoon captain Kelly Stephens, the roofers were using a

torch on the roof when the blaze got away on them. “They have a roll-on product and, with propane torches, they heat the product onto the roof,” said Stephens.

‘‘

CREWS WERE ON SCENE QUICK AND WE MANAGED TO (KEEP) DAMAGES TO AS LITTLE AS POSSIBLE. Capt. Kelly Stephens

He noted the roofer who accidentally started the fire had proper safety equipment with him. “He had his extinguisher handy and he tried to get it right away, but it got away on him.” Stephens added the

fire could have been worse, considering the building’s proximity to the lake. “Sometimes you get wind-driven fires from winds that come off the lake, we’re always concerned about that aspect. “Crews were on scene quick and we managed to (keep) damages to as little as possible.” Total response included three fire engines, a command vehicle, a safety vehicle and a rescue truck. A portion of Cedar Avenue was shut down for more than an hour while the fire crews dealt with the blaze. Damages are estimated to be around $10,000. Both the roofer and the notary public had insurance. wpaterson@kelownacapnews.com

Police want council to pull business licence Wade Paterson STAFF REPORTER

If West Kelowna council follows the RCMP’s advice, Cycle Logic Ltd. won’t be in business Wednesday morning. Council will consider district staff’s recommendation to revoke the business’s license when it meets at a regular meeting this evening. Last September, po-

lice announced they had seized over $750,000 worth of stolen goods after a six-month investigation of Cycle Logic— located on Juliann Road in West Kelowna—and its owner, John Edward Newcome. Some of the items stolen included an orange Mastercraft boat and trailer, a 2012 red Polaris Racer 570 ATV, a Speedex key cutting machine,

a key programmer and a 2008 black Harley Davidson motorcycle. Mounties also determined that members of the Hells Angels, and associate biker gangs the Throttle Lockers and Kingpin Crew, were implicated in a trafficking scheme they say was operated out of the West Kelowna motorcycle shop. The shop alleged-

ly took in stolen vehicles, modified vehicle identification numbers and then re-sold them in markets outside of the Okanagan. Newcome was arrested and charged with 15 counts of possession of stolen property over $5,000 and seven counts of trafficking in stolen property over $5,000. “The RCMP recommends that city council cancel the business li-

cence for Cycle Logic,” states a police report included in council’s agenda package. Cycle Logic was incorporated on May 30, 2005 and Newcome is listed as the company president, secretary and only director. He will have the opportunity to speak at this evening’s council meeting. wpaterson@kelownacapnews.com

Former Okanagan Tree Fruit Co-op worker prepares for walk to Victoria Wade Paterson STAFF REPORTER

Jeff Bryde, a former employee of the Okanagan Tree Fruit Co-operative, is getting ready to walk nearly 500 kilometres because he says he’s got “nothing left to lose.” Bryde first made waves in September 2011 after he wrote letters to the editors of local newspapers criticizing the co-

op’s business practices. His objection stemmed from B.C. Tree Fruit’s decision to sell Washington State apples when certain varieties weren’t available from local growers. Bryde’s protest included a five-day hunger strike. He was suspended, but returned to work in April 2012. He got into hot water again last October when he publicly claimed fruit packing bins contaminat-

ed with pigeon feces resulted in him getting sick earlier that year. Now without a job or a house, Bryde said he is making one last effort because he “believes in the truth.” “I’m going to walk with my dog—we’re walking to Victoria and I’m going to try to get the government to do an investigation into what I’ve perceived as being a cover-up in the fruit indus-

try with the contamination with the fruit packing bins,” said Bryde. Bryde has struggled to find employment since being terminated from the co-op. “I’m blacklisted as being a whistleblower and I’m paying the consequences right now.” He said he plans to begin the journey around April 2.

JEFF BRYDE says he’s walking to Victoria in a bid to get the province to investigate fruit bin contamination.

There’s no time for a departing message to the public he served, Kelowna’s top cop has decided. Kelowna RCMP Supt. Bill McKinnon has just four days left in his position at the helm of the Okanagan’s largest RCMP detachment and is too busy to make any final comments to the media. Kelowna RCMP spokesman Const. Kris Clark delivered the news in the detachment’s regu-

larly scheduled Monday briefing—the first of such media briefings in a couple of months. The past year has been a difficult one for the head of the city detachment. Earlier this month, McKinnon’s daughter was charged and convicted of trafficking drugs in a dial-a-dope operation, netting her seven months in jail. A young Kelowna RCMP constable also plead guilty to assault partway through his trial in a highly publicized

Bill McKinnon case in which the officer was filmed kicking a suspect who was down on all fours. The video was posted to YouTube and gar-

nered more than 200,000 hits. McKinnon successfully lobbied Kelowna city council for additional police officers in the past year, adding seven new uniformed officers to the ranks of his detachment after years of requests for more manpower. McKinnon served the city for nine years, working alongside his wife, RCMP Const. Cheryl McKinnon, well-known in the community, primarily due to her work as a school liaison officer.

No charges after St. Paul standoff There was no weapon in the supposed armed standoff at the Cardington Apartments on St. Paul Street, the Kelowna RCMP says. A 49-year-old man was taken into custody after barricading himself in his apartment for two hours on Sunday afternoon and threatening to

kill himself. “He has threatened suicide in the past,” said RCMP spokesperson Const. Kris Clark in a debriefing on the incident Monday morning. Clark noted the individual was already known to police and did not make any specific threats against others, though po-

lice were concerned there might be hostages in his room. Buildings on either side of the transitional housing complex were evacuated and the block closed off, prompting media attention. RCMP managed to secure the man’s cell phone number and negoti-

ated a peaceful resolution. All RCMP officers are trained in crisis negotiation and, in 95 per cent of cases, the negotiations are successful, Clark said. As the individual involved did not actually threaten anyone’s life specifically, other than his own, no charges will be laid.

Way of the Cross Walk set to go Kelowna KAIROS, the Central Okanagan Ministerial Association, and a number of Kelowna churches and agencies are once again participating in the local Good Friday Way of the Cross journey through downtown. The wlak is set to go March 29. Participants will gather in the First United Church’s sanctuary at

12:30 p.m. Following a reflection and prayer, members of the procession will carry a large wooden cross as they walk to a series of locations representing local organizations that deal with social issues in today’s society. This year’s route will include stops at several “former” locations of services such as the

Women’s Centre and Department of Immigration, noting government funding cuts that have reduced programs and services in critical areas. Downtown Urban Health will also be a stop on the route where the group will consider the impact of the announced closure of Cross Roads. This event recognizes the work of local organ-

izations in lifting up the struggles of many people in our city who carry the cross in our present time. It is a time of prayer, witness and song as the procession stops and listens to words from the agencies as well as the churches. The walk will conclude at 2 p.m., back at First United. All are welcome.

ICBC says its road safety investments here paying are off You’ve likely driven by Richter Street and Sutherland Avenue and noticed the intersection improvements. This is one of 19 road improvements ICBC invested in last year to help make Kelowna, West Kelowna and other area roads safer. The insurance corporation launched its safer roads program in 1989,

and since then has invested more than $110 million in road improvement projects and safety studies across B.C. In 2012, ICBC invested approximately $1.8 million in the southern Interior and $8 million in projects and safety audits across the province, including $495,000 in this area. “Road improvements

Some of ICBC’s contributions to road safety ICBC has helped fund several safe road projects in this area including: • Installation of uninterrupted power supply (UPS) systems at Highway 97, Huston Road to Drought Hill. Partner: Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure. ICBC contribution: $87,500 • Installation of centre line rumble strips throughout the area with the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure. ICBC’s contribution: $2,000 • Installation of curve delineation signage on rural arterial corridors at Burtch Road—Harvey Avenue to Springfield Road with the City of Kelowna. ICBC’s contribution: $3,670 • Lane reconfiguration to create continuous bicycle lane, single northbound lane and two southbound lanes throughout the area, with the City of Kelowna. ICBC’s contribution: $2,800 • Installation of 27 inch high no-post guardrail on curves located on Casorso Road, McKinley Road and Sexsmith Road-

with the City of Kelowna. ICBC’s contribution: $3,500. • Study of comprehensive safety review of five intersections in the city, with the City of Kelowna. ICBC’s contribution: $12,000 • Pedestrian countdown timer signal improvements at Spall Road between Enterprise and Glenmore, and Bernard Avenue between Spall and Dilworth Place, with the city. ICBC’s contribution: $12,500. • Traffic operations and safety review study in three corridors, with the City of Kelowna. ICBC’s contribution: $18,345. • Signal timing optimization at Richter Street and Sutherland Avenue, with the City of Kelowna.

ICBC contribution: $10,100.

deliver real value to everyone on our roads, from drivers to pedestrians,” said John Dickinson, ICBC’s director of road safety. “We’ll continue to invest in road safety initiatives that help us reduce claims costs to keep rates as low as possible for our customers.” All proposed road improvement projects are

assessed based on their ability to make roads safer. The most recent evaluation of the program concluded that overall, for every dollar invested, ICBC and its customers see a return of five times the investment, says ICBC. The evaluation found that two years following a project’s implementation,

there is, on average, a 20 per cent reduction in severe crashes and a 12 per cent reduction in property damage crashes at the site. More importantly, the benefits of road improvements continue well beyond two years. ICBC also participates in engineering studies and assists communities in the planning of roadways and managing traffic.

As road improvements are implemented, it also requires drivers to adopt new driving behaviours, such as adjusting to traffic pattern changes and understanding the rules of the road. The majority of crashes are preventable and have more to do with driver error than road engineering. So ICBC says driv-

ers need to do their part by making smart driving decisions and avoiding crashes. Over the last 23 years, ICBC’s safer roads program has evolved—community investments and partnerships have led to award-winning projects and the contributions have helped advance the knowledge of the road safety engineering, it says.

Okanagan College launches new-look, enhanced website Okanagan College has unveiled its new website, with an enhanced look, new features and improved navigation. The site, which attracts nearly a million unique visitors each year who visit more than 6.7 million pages, features a revamped aesthetic with a clean and modern look and feel, say college officials. From a navigational perspective, the site offers an increased number of direct links to top level pages within the site, courtesy of a horizontal drop down menu with 29 options for users to enter the site.

The project was led by a team of Okanagan College employees guided by analytic research and consultation with students, employees and members of the community. Last week’s launch marked the first significant redesign of the web site since 2005. The Okanagan College website address is: www.okanagan. bc.ca. “The launch of our new site marks an important development for the college,” said Allan Coyle, director of public affairs. “Our website is the primary source of information for prospective

and current students as well as our employees and community partners.” Coyle said the new site offers greater access to information, news, events, and is easier to navigate. “We took the time to listen to our users and have responded with a site that will do a better job of answering their needs.” Among the new features is a Google calendar of events for the college, channels for current college news and links to the OC’s new social media directory, which lists a variety of accounts, RSS feeds, blogs and other social tools.

City Park Concept Plan

The City Park Concept Plan is underway and residents are invited to share ideas online to help shape the future of one of Kelowna’s premier waterfront parks. Ideas and design sketches will be shown to generate community discussion with the aim of an iterative process as staff work towards a preferred direction over the next few months. Designing parks and open spaces for a variety of users including youth, families and seniors promotes activity in those spaces at different times of the day. Topics include the use of youth amenities, circulation within the park, accommodating events and the look and feel of a new Visitor Information Centre and community amenity facility.

Cops help skiers make their mark A pair of Mounties in their iconic Red Serge uniform and the local detachment’s mascot Safety Bear came out to support the recent annual engraving day at the Big White community policing office. RCMP Volunteers and Crime Stoppers were on hand to provide engraving services and public awareness to skiers and snowboarders at the annual en-

graving day at Big White. Engraving day is an opportunity for skiers and boarders to have their ski and board equipment marked for identification in the event it is lost or stolen. That way, if found or recovered, the equipment can be properly identified and returned to its rightful owner. The mascot and Mounties added a little

fun to the event and were a huge hit, especially with kids and those seeking a unique photo opportunity. “This was our most successful engraving endeavour to date, as we engraved a total of 114 pieces of ski and board equipment,” said Esone Richards, a volunteer with the Big White community policing office.

Van Ryswyk was officially named the riding’s candidate during a nomination meeting Sunday night. She ran unopposed. The founder and president of Okanagan Koi told those in attendance that her involvement in small business mixes well with being an NDP candidate. “Why can’t I be free enterprise and care about people at the same time?

Illegal fourplex going to public hearing

A fourplex sitting alongside the downtown multi-use pathway on High Road will be sent to public hearing for consideration of a bid to legalize its units to create four dseparate condos, under a -new zoning and Official -Community Plan desigenation. Though the building -has been operated as a sfourplex since shortly afyter it was built 20 years -ago, the owners never -legalized it as such, only having former Coun. -Graeme James, acting

as their agent, pitch a bid to have it conform to city zoning and bylaws with a redevelopment plan. The mode of attack does impress at least one councillor, however. Coun. Gail Given stated quite openly during Monday’s council meeting that she is uncomfortable with the owners’ attempts to back-end due process. “For it to come around now, and for us to be finally legalizing what was always intended to be a fourplex, I just find that problematic,” she said,

shaking her head. Nevertheless, without complaints from any of the residents, as canvassed by James on behalf of owners Geoff and Leanne Proteau, the mayor suggested it was likely worth forwarding the rezoning to public hearing to see if the neighbourhood is at all uncomfortable with the owners’ plans. The move overlooked the objections of Kelowna city staff, opposed to the application because it prevents a four-lot development from being assem-

bled on the site. The High Road block does lend itself to high-density housing, situated as it is beside a large senior’s housing complex on Pheasant Street and leading to a busy downtown thoroughfare, Gordon Drive. Council was informed that an offer to purchase the other three lots in question has never materialized, however. In the meantime, the Proteaus would like to renovate the insides of the units, potentially to sell each condo separately.

Protest takes root as Vernon trees axed along 30th Avenue

Richard Rolke

City officials insist there was no choice but to remove the trees, some of which are 30 years old. “We went through a process to see if we could keep the trees with the new (road) design but they would have wound up in the middle of the sidewalk,” said Mark Dowhaniuk, infrastructure engineer. “They would have impeded pedestrian traffic.” Dowhaniuk said some of the trees were also in poor condition, and they will be replaced with trees that are at least 10 feet tall. “New trees are definitely a large portion of the

A semi truck overturned off Highway 97 late Sunday morning in Vernon. The tanker, carrying malt barley, was heading southbound beside the Army Camp when it landed on its side in the ditch. Traffic was able to travel around the accident, with one south-bound lane closed while the incident was cleared. The 62-year-old driver, from Alberta, escaped without injury. He was issued a ticket for failing to confine his vehicle to the right.

Advance voting for Vernon sports facility The first advance poll for the community sports field and athletics facility borrowing referendum for Vernon is Wednesday. “We’re ready to roll,” said Jeanne Byron, chief election officer. Residents will be asked if they authorize the borrowing of up to $7.5 million over 20 years to construct a sports com-

plex at Okanagan College (Vernon campus). Wednesday’s advance poll will run from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. at the Schubert Centre, the Coldstream municipal office and the Regional District of North Okanagan office. There will also be an advance poll at those same locations April 3 from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

General referendum day is April 6 and the polls will be open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. at Priest Valley Gym, Coldstream Elementary, BX Elementary and Ellison Elementary. Residents can vote at any of the locations. To cast a ballot, resident electors will be required to produce two pieces of identification (at

least one with a signature) that prove residency and identity. Information on the referendum can be obtained at www.rdno.ca. The steering committee promoting the referendum will hold a public information session at Okanagan College Wednesday, March 27 from 5:30 to 7 p.m.

Penticton readying money to build a new hospital tower Local campaigners won’t rest until the money is committed and shovels are in the ground. aside to prepare the tower’s conceptual plan and business case, although Interior Health, which created the concept plan, has billed for just $350,000 so far, Newell said. And it appears now that the premier’s $2-million promise means the B.C. government will pay for the whole business case. Health Ministry spokesperson Ryan Jabs wrote in an email Friday: “I can confirm, Health will pay to develop hospital business case.”

MARK BRETT/PENTICTON WESTERN NEWS

MORE THAN 100 people, most carrying signs, rallied in support of the expansion of Penticton Regional Hospital for about two hours last Wednesday. Individuals and groups, including the Penticton Medical Staff Society, are urging the B.C. government to go ahead with plans to build the proposed patient care tower. Joe Fries CONTRIBUTOR

A war chest of $40,000 should be available for twin campaigns aimed at sustaining public support for a new Penticton hospital tower. Local politicians have agreed to cover half that amount through the Okanagan Similkameen Regional Hospital District, while doctors are expected to match the taxpayers’ contribution. Summerland Mayor Janice Perrino, who chairs the hospital district’s board, said at a meeting Thursday that despite Premier Christy Clark’s verbal support for the tower project, it’s important to have cash available to keep pressure on B.C. government decision-makers. “This is for advertising expenses to keep their feet to the fire. In other words, if the public stops rallying, if the medical community stops rallying and if we as politicians stop rallying, we’re afraid that they might just sit there and do nothing,” Perrino said. “That is our fear.” The premier on Wednesday said her government had approved $2 million to develop a business case for the new ambulatory care tower. The premier also said her government had “notion-

ally” identified room in its 10-year capital plan to fund its share of the build. But local campaigners have said they won’t rest until the construction money is committed and shovels are in the ground. “The campaign is far from over and there will be continued expenses,” said Garry Litke, a Penticton city councillor who is

leading the community group that will be funded through the hospital district. Litke presented a $40,000 campaign budget that provides $25,000 for advertising and promotional items, $5,000 for community engagement events, and $10,000 for public relations specialists. The city has already

spent $3,000 on the campaign to date, he added. Wes Hopkin, a Penticton city councillor and alternate director on the hospital district board, supported the campaign plan but said he had difficulties with it. “It bothers me that we have to spend this. Regardless of whichever party’s in (power in Vic-

toria), we shouldn’t have to do this in order to get funding for our hospital,” Hopkin said. Bill Newell, the hospital district’s chief administrative officer, said the campaign expenses are “logical costs that should be charged against the project.” The hospital district already had $2 million set

The concept plan for the four-storey ambulatory care tower features a medical school, surgical suites, outpatient clinics and an oncology centre, plus a five-story parkade beside it, with a price tag of $300 million. The hospital district has committed to spending $120 million, while the local hospital foundation has pledged another $20 million, leaving the provincial government to cover the balance.

Penticton’s turn for modern hospital

I

t’s a little hard to take Premier Christy Clark seriously when she says the province is committed to building a new tower to upgrade the Penticton Regional Hospital. (See story page A9.) It’s also a bit hard to accept Penticton Mayor Dan Ashton— who will be the Penticton Liberal candidate when the writ is dropped next month—when he asserts that Clark’s recent announcement was not politically motivated. Health shouldn’t be about

politics, Ashton said. On that, at least, it’s easy to agree with our potential MLA. However, when it comes to the Penticton hospital expansion, it’s pretty clear that politics plays a big part. The project has been “at the top of the list” for years. But political wrangling on the part of Kamloops and Vernon health proponents—a Vernon group even hired a political lobbyist—saw their projects jump to the head of the line. Now Clark says its Pentic-

ton’s turn, after public outcry and a “loud and proud” campaign on the part of Penticton doctors has given the B.C. Liberals a bit of a black eye. Clark has even found $2 million to put towards a business case to show the actual need for an expansion. It’s something of a hollow commitment, coming from a government that is by no means certain of re-election. And the need is obvious; Penticon’s hospital is more than half a century old, and suffers from chron-

ic overcrowding as well as a lack of facilities for increasingly modernized medical equipment. It’s too close to the election for Clark to make any sort of authentic commitment to Penticton Regional Hospital. The Penticton Medical Society has promised to continue keeping the need for the hospital expansion in the public eye until they see shovels in the ground. The rest of Penticton needs to do likewise, and support and encourage their efforts. Penticton Western News

Big-picture thinking is required if we are to protect nature

F

ew places on Earth have been untouched by humans, according to a study in the journal Science. Satellite images taken from hundreds of kilometres above the planet reveal a world that we have irrevocably changed within a remarkably short time. Although industrial projects like the proposed Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline or the recently defeated mega-quarry in Ontario typically grab the headlines and bring out public opposition, it’s often the com-

bined impacts of a range of human activities on the same land base that threaten to drive nature beyond critical tipping points. Once those are passed, rapid ecological changes such as species extinction

can occur. For example, in British Columbia’s booming Peace Region, forestry, energy and mineral leases and licences are widespread and often multilayered in the same area. As various industries have exploited

these “tenures”, a sprawling patchwork of large clearcuts, oil wells, dams and reservoirs, fracking operations and thousands of kilometres of seismic lines, roads and pipelines have come to dominate the landscape. Today, more than 65 per cent of the region has felt the impact of industrial development, leaving little intact habitat for sensitive, endangered species such as caribou to feed, breed or roam. Degradation or destruction of habitat has convinced scientists that remaining herds in the region are no longer self-sustaining and are spiralling toward local extinction. First Nations, who have relied upon cari-

bou as their primary source of food for thousands of years, can no longer hunt them. This is a clear violation of treaty rights. This dire situation didn’t happen by accident or because of a laissezfaire approach to resource and land management. Numerous industries in the area have been operating legally and according to rules and regulations set by government. But legal experts, such as those at the nongovernmental organization West Coast Environmental Law, believe a root cause of the problem lies in laws about land, resource and water management that are “hardwired” to fail communities and the environ-

ment. The narrow focus of those laws enables industries to operate in isolation from one another. B.C., for example, has developed numerous individual laws, like the Forest and Range Practices Act, Oil and Gas Activities Act and Mines Act, alongside the regulated industries they enable. But the province lacks a legal framework to proactively and comprehensively manage the cumulative impacts of multiple resource industries operating within the same area. Because of this, WCEL and its First Nations partners are engaged in a multi-year law reform project that

Pringle school site good for DWK city hall

To the editor: Bravo Sheila Kennedy. I agree that (the) George Pringle (school site) is an excellent choice for a (District of West Kelowna) City Hall. Some of the pros I see .are: 1. Parking both on the property and in the Towne Centre Mall close by. 2. The water park is just behind the property —much like Kasugai Gardens is behind Kelowna City Hall.

3. It would certainly form an excellent part of revitalizing the old Westbank downtown area. 4. The bus stops are very close to George Pringle. Almost all buses pass through that location. 5. It’s close to The library, doctors and dentists’ offices, the museum, the police station, the fire station etc. 6. It would free up space for the Mt. Boucherie complex to return to its previous use, or be used for expansion of the

Mt. Boucherie Secondary School next door. 7. Parking at the Mt. Boucherie complex would be more readily available if city staff moved out of its current space. 8. There is plenty of space at George Pringle for the City Hall and enough left over for other use. George Pringle is not a good elementary school site. Perched up on its hill, it is not easy for little children to access. The drive

through for parents picking up children makes the car park a dangerous place to navigate. Any child needing a wheelchair cannot attend George Pringle and that leads to the only “con” I can think of. When the secondary school was modified to become an elementary school, it did not have to be made wheelchair accessible because it was an older building being modified rather that a new building being built.

I am sure that the cost of adding an elevator at Pringle would not be prohibitive. The school’s gymnasium is a great space and could be used for a variety of events—the choices would need to be looked into by the municipality. I don’t think there is a better site for a new West Kelowna City Hall.

It’s financially worth it to go after the tax cheats

s

To the editor: Finance Minister Jim Flaherty actually sounds serious. Referring to tax cheats, he says “it’s apparent that there’s still substantial tax avoidance and tax evasion and some of it through quite sophisticated methods by relatively wealthy people.” To nail these tax cheats, he plans on rewarding people who snitch on tax evasion amounting to more than $100,000. He’ll also require banks to report inter-

national transfers of more than $10,000, close tax loopholes, and introduce fines and jail time for possession and use of tax-evasion software. Never mind that he’s never taken these level-headed measures before, instead cutting back on program spending to meet his aspirations for election year 2015.  He’s going to take them now.  And he thinks they’ll result in revenue of $4.4 billion across five years, although he allows that could be a low figure.

And so we hope it is, for that figure barely scratches the surface of the estimated $32 trillion that’s squirrelled away in tax havens throughout the world. To try to answer a difficult question—one that Flaherty himself won’t touch—what could Canada’s cut of the hidden monies possibly be? We could probably start almost anywhere in attempting a calculation, but let’s start here. What’s Canada’s slice of the total GDP of all G8 countries? In 2011, it was

Managing human footprint

Suzuki from A10

aims to overhaul the way we currently oversee and regulate cumulative impacts, ranging from declining water quality that may arise as a result of multiple industries using a common resource to emerging threats such as climate change. A cumulative-impacts approach to governing resource development would upend the current management paradigm. It would focus on the management needs of the land, water, air and wildlife and the communities that depend on them first, rather than the resources yto be extracted. In practical terms, this would mean that, rather than focusing on what we should take from nature to create

wealth and employment, we should first consider what must be retained in nature to sustain both wildlife and the well-being of local communities – such as clean air, safe drinking water and healthy local food. At a recent symposium on managing the cumulative impacts of resource development in B.C., numerous speakers – from First Nations to academics to business leaders – stressed that effectively managing cumulative impacts will require new institutions and governance mechanisms, even new legal tools. More importantly, it will require our leaders to adopt a more proactive and holistic way of thinking about the world – one that recog-

kelownacapnews.com

nizes that far from just being a place to extract resources like fossil fuels, timber and minerals, nature is our home. Nature provides our most fundamental needs and dictates limits to growth and so its protection should be our highest priority. Managing our massive, growing human footprint on this planet more sustainably will require leadership, much of which is emerging from First Nations peoples who are on the frontlines of the day-to-day realities of cumulative environmental change. We need to look at the big picture rather than individual elements in isolation. David Suzuki is a biologist and broadcaster based in Vancouver.

4.75 per cent. So what’s 4.75 per cent of the $32 trillion squirrelled away by the world’s richest corporations and individuals? It’s a little more than $1.5 trillion. Now, because we’ve surely left a lot of variables out of the reckoning, let’s say that’s 10 times too much for the Canadian cut of hidden, untaxed money. Let’s say the Canadian cut is really $150 billion. If we wanted to go even easier on the capitalists and even harder on

my logical capability, we could say that’s still twice too much. The Canadian cut of hidden money is closer to $75 billion. If we knocked that in half, and knocked it in half again, I myself would say that Flaherty isn’t knocking himself out in trying to nab the wealthy Canadian elite who shamelessly evade paying a fair share of their ultra-exorbitant take. Dianne Varga, Kelowna

A better time I remember a time when I used to walk down the street and I would say good morning to everyone I passed. And they would reply with a cheery smile and say hello. The ones who didn’t respond you would have thought were a little off or a little grouchy that day. Horns beeped to say hello and a hand out a window was to wave and acknowledge a neighbour. It was a better time.

Today, if I walk down the street, I am the crazy one. Someone blowing their car horn means get out of the way. If you see a hand stuck out that’s even worse, we all know what that means. The family unit is gone. Our neighbours are nothing more than people to be avoided. Good-bye to a better time, an extinct era never to return. Ann-Marie Jackson, Kelowna

We should be aware we may be approached by a crook and become a victim of his or her scam at any time of the day or night. Crooks take advantage of Internet and telephone fraud and are bold in their desire to rip us off. Identity theft and phishing is on the rise in Canada.

Cybercriminals can do this by installing malicious software on your computer or stealing personal information off computers. They might email you, call you on the phone, or convince you to download something from a website. Be careful where you spend your money. Scams involving online auctions, online classified ads and questionable online retailers continued to be a top complaint in 2012. Whether you are a buy or a seller, you can end up with no merchandise and no cash.

Has a Nigerian or foreign diplomat contacted you asking for help? Do they want to get millions of dollars out of the country and need your assistance? They send out thousands of e-mail’s trying to get someone interested in participating with their plea for help. Internet dating can be a financial disaster. How about your new online love asking you for cash or airfare to meet you? Or asking for cash because of financial need—without meeting you? Crooks take advantage of rising divorce rates and the growing popularity of online dating sites to ply their trade.

Do you answer the door and someone is trying to sell you their services of paving driveways or putting on new roofs. Before you sign on the dotted line, check out their credentials and call their references. Many incidents are never reported—some people are embarrassed they have been a victim of a scan and choose not to tell their family and closest friends.

Student entrepreneurs sow seeds for future

T

his past weekend, I had the privilege to be, for the day, both a student entrepreneurial coach and one of the judges of an eight-team competition at UBCO. What fun we all had mingling with students, faculty, visiting entrepreneurs and guests. I am convinced I made a handful of new acquaintances and was very encouraged by the words that suggested an entrepreneurial spirit has evolved on campus that will be pursued and embraced for years to come. As a result of this enjoyable experience, it has inspired me to share with you some words on my take of this rising tide of student entrepreneurship on both UBCO and Okanagan College campuses. First of all, let’s be clear, student entrepreneurship is truly an effective strategy to prepare our young people to become successful in that remarkable sector of our Canadian economy. Student entrepreneurship may be comprised of a program or activity that takes students through the entrepreneurial process in its entirety, and what it takes to become a successful entrepreneur and small business owner. It represents preparing our young folks to understand all dimensions of this process and learn about becoming your own boss, which in many surveys in Canada and the USA was an answer that quickly rose to the top of the chart. Student entrepreneurship may take the form of school-based businesses ( many examples in the North American literature) that students help to set up and run, curricula that guides students through the process of

ENTREPRENEURIAL SPIRIT

Joel Young creating business plans, working with local entrepreneurs and other community resources to plan and run enterprises, or any combination of these activities. This past Saturday, while at the UBC event, I was exposed to some very innovative venture ideas by the eight participating teams, which informed all of us present of the mind-bending thought processes the students had undertaken. We are constantly reminded in our beloved Okanagan, of the wealth of entrepreneurial talent in our communities which are an excellent resource to tap for assistance and hands-on experiences for student entrepreneurship. Student entrepreneurship, undoubtedly enable students to make connections across academic disciplines in a real life, experiental context. Students have the undying opportunity to participate in designing their own learning curve and are thus motivated to think, plan and act as genuine entrepreneurs. Entrepreneurship encourages all students to work in teams and to engage in each aspect of running an entrepreneurial venture: product or service design as well as production, quality control, marketing, sales, and financial bookkeeping. These are truthfully skills that students ordinarily may not have the opportunity to learn in school. Additionally, dear

readers, students will embrace pride as they have the opportunity to earn money in an entrepreneurial pursuit for their schools and community projects. Student entrepreneurship gives schools the chance to expose students to situations outside of the usual curriculum (as in the UBCO experience of last weekend which had teams of four or five students each participate to teach students a variety of business techniques and new and emerging technologies. In rural communities, such as the Okanagan, with only a few employers of substantial size, student entrepreneurship may, in fact, offer the best learning environment which connect the participating students to the world of innovation, creativity and….work. I don’t want to forget some additional benefits of student entrepreneurship as I am hoping that both UBCO and Okanagan College professors will read this column. Students gain valuable knowledge of the business and industry world including: • The vocabulary of the business world, and our economic system. • Characteristics and behaviours of successful entrepreneurs, exploration of career possibilities provided by running one’s own venture. • The process of planning, financing, and writing a viable business plan. • The legal requirements of operating a small business, including structure, taxes, licences, permits and bookkeeping. • The self-knowledge and aptitude required of entrepreneurship, the ability to know one’s own strengths and weaknesses, to analyze feasibility and to take

risks. As I was researching with my network of entrepreneurship academics, I decided to zero in on key factors in setting up and establishing a student entrepreneurship environment within our campuses and came up with a short list of key criteria for your reading pleasure: • Secure support from relevant leaders from both within and external to your academic structures; • Identify student interests ( discovering what their interests may realistically be) • Prepare teachers for the impending change in their classrooms • Develop business and industry contacts within the economic and business development professional community. • Develop the entrepreneurship curriculum …( vital for this environmental exercise so students will see the learning standards for how they will be assessed. • Student entrepreneurship offers valuable opportunities for performance-based assessments as students will need time to reflect on their work and what they have learned through the use of journals and discussion. This sums up my leaning to the quest for student entrepreneurship endeavour within a given region, our region from both within and external to the classroom. We are truly moving in that direction and this entrepreneur can’t help but be excited. Thank you students, thank you institutions and thank you Okanagan entrepreneurs. Joel Young is an entrepreneurial leadership educator, consultant, coach and founder of the Okanagan Valley Entrepreneurs Society.

▼ RECALL AND INITIATIVE ACT

Smart meters subject of petition StopSmartMeters.ca Society is launching a province-wide appeal for support of a citizens’ initiative petition similar to the one that help dump the HST. The society is a non-profit group B.C. that is fighting the installation of smart meter by B.C. Hydro.  It says it has been following the ongoing legal

challenges, supporting those challenges and participating in a bid to convince political parties that the smart metering program has been imposed upon the people against their will.  SSM.ca says it now believes that the time for diplomacy is over and that the only way to take back our power is to use the Recall and Initiative Act.

B.C. is the only province with such legislation. “We have it.  Let’s use it,” said SSM.ca president. James Smith. “This is no longer just about the meters. Not everyone agrees on all of the issues but the one issue that should concern everyone is the manner in which the smart metering program has been imposed upon us.  For many,

the threat to health and security is very real, and in a society that is supposedly democratic, the freedom of choice should be held to the highest standard.” SSM.ca Society has hired a social media consultant and plans to launch a social media campaign this week to promote and garner support for the initiative petition.

Coaching is not a substitute for performance management B ringing in a third party to deal with difficult employees is becoming more common and it raises interesting challenges and learning opportunities for everyone. The requests I get from employer are typically to coach an employee in order to “fix” their workplace behaviour or communication skills. Typically the manager will say nothing else has worked and they really need outside help. The unspoken reasons are more likely that they simply don’t know how to manage the employee themselves or they don’t have the time or the patience to put in the effort required to learn. One of the first things I like to explore is what the manager has already done to address the employee’s behaviour. This conversation typically draws out details about the quality of the relationship between the manager and the employee. It may also indicate whether or not coaching is the right solution at that particular time. If trust and mutual respect are lacking in their relationship the employee is far more likely to resist coaching, viewing it as a last chance to improve before getting fired. That

what coaching can and cannot achieve. It is unrealistic to expect that coaching alone will produce any kind of lasting effect without management support and employee engagement. In situations where an employee exhibits a serious decline in work performance or persistent conflict with others, direct management intervention is critical and it needs to be timely. Leaving

WORK LIFE

Laurie Mills fear will present itself as negativity and defensiveness which will significantly impede their ability to fully engage. These are not ideal conditions for a successful coaching experience. If however, the manager consistently demonstrates a sincere interest in helping the employee become more successful, then external coaching can be a great way to complement that support. In that case, the manager and the employee would discuss expected outcomes, agree upon coaching goals, and set up regular check-ins to review the employee’s progress. There could be any number of reasons why an individual may not show improvement after having had coaching and, fair or not, at least some of the blame will be put on the coach. That is why it is important for the coach to have input up front about

‘‘

IT IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE MANAGER TO ENSURE THAT PERFORMANCE PROBLEMS DO NOT GET OUT OF HAND, LEADING TO A DESPERATE REQUEST FOR HELP.

these kinds of issues unattended means that negative behaviour will get entrenched leading to the much bigger problem of a toxic work environment. It is the responsibility of the manager to en-

sure that performance problems do not get out of hand, leading to a desperate request for help. When things have reached that stage, it is too late for coaching to be of real use. As a developmental strategy, external coaching can work brilliantly; as a tactic for fixing poor performance, its effectiveness is questionable. So, rather than request coaching to help an employee improve their behaviour a wiser strategy would be to bring a coach to help the manager learn how to better handle performance issues. People management is a key element of strong leadership. It simply comes with the territory of being a manager and it will pay off in the long run to learn how to do this part of the job more effectively.

Smaller B.C. political parties start to stake out election turf Tom Fletcher BLACK PRESS

VICTORIA—As the NDP widens its lead over the governing B.C. Liberal Party in a new poll, the B.C. Conservatives and B.C. Green Party are hoping an early rollout of their policy platforms will help their support grow. An Angus Reid Public Opinion poll released Thursday showed the NDP the choice of 48 per cent of decided voters, up one point since February. The B.C. Liberals were down three points to 28 per cent of decided voters.

The B.C. Conservatives and B.C. Greens were both up slightly in voter intention, tied at 11 per cent support. The poll surveyed 809 B.C. adults March 18 and 19, claiming a margin of error of plus or minus 3.5 per cent. The B.C. Conservatives released their “pre-election platform” late last week, describing it as a “living document” that could change before the May 14 provincial election. It devotes much of its 28 pages to criticizing the province’s 20-year record on taxes, spending and debt. As party leader John Cummins has signalled, the platform promises the elimination of the five-

year-old carbon tax on fossil fuels. It emphasizes the disproportionate impact the tax has on rural and northern parts of B.C., but does not specify if offsetting income tax cuts would be reversed to make up the revenue to the province. The B.C. Conservative pledge to balance budgets is emphasized, but the platform doesn’t identify any reduced spending or tax increases. It decries the low health care spending relative to other provinces, and also calls for an unspecified increase in justice system budgets. The B.C. Green Party’s 40-page platform contains many promises, from creating

“green-collar jobs” to doubling B.C.’s park area to 20 per cent over the next 100 years. The Green platform is also described as a “living document,” released last November and updated at the end of January. It also lacks costing for an array of costly policies, including 24-hour medical clinics in rural areas and replacing all existing income assistance programs with a “guaranteed livable income” for everyone. The Greens also vow to reduce taxes on businesses that promote health, phase out medical premiums and eliminate gambling in B.C.

UBCO health and exercise sciences student researchers win awards While UBC Okangagan’s Centre for Heart, Lung and Vascular Health is still fairly new, a group of graduate students is helping put it on the map. The centre opened in November and is an interdisciplinary clinical research facility within the university’s faculty of health and social development. The centre is led by co-directors Phil Ainslie and Neil Eves—both associate professors with the School of Health and Exercise Sciences. Cardiovascular, respiratory and cerebral vascular diseases continue

to be the leading cause of death and illness in Canada, with five million people living with heart or respiratory diseases or as survivors of strokes, says Eves. The centre at the UBC Okanagan campus was established to help researchers investigate causes, consequences and treatments for heart, lung and blood vessel diseases. Last month, two PhD students and one master’s student, all of whom conduct research within the centre, came away with top prizes for their work. Jinelle Gelinas at-

tended Heart and Lung Fest 2013 held by the Institute of Heart and Lung Health in Vancouver and was awarded first place in the cardiovascular category for her poster presentation. She is finishing her master’s degree and, under the supervision of Eves, is investigating what role exercise has on vascular structure and function in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. At Heart and Lung Fest, Gelinas presented a poster displaying her most current research findings

and also gave an oral presentation. Part of her research is to determine whether the benefits of exercise can  slow down, or even reverse, cardiovascular disease in patients with a chronic lung condition. The Heart and Lung Fest Scientific Symposium is an annual event that takes place in Vancouver each year and involves many of Canada’s top researchers and laboratories in respiratory and cardiac  health, explains Eves. Meanwhile, PhD student Anthony Bain returned from the Inter-

national Conference on Environmental Physiology in New Zealand last month where he won top prize for his oral presentation about how blood flow to the brain changes during heat stress. He had 15 minutes to present his research and explain to the panel of judges, comprised of internationally renowned leaders in thermal physiology, why it matters. Bain, who started his PhD in September, is studying under Ainslie, who is excited about the win in New Zealand. “This is a major inter-

national conference that only happens every two years. It attracts the top students, researchers and clinicians from around the world, so kudos to Anthony for winning the award.” From high heat, to high altitude, the third winner associated with the centre is Kurt Smith, who spent time with researchers at the Pyramid Research lab at (Mt.) Everest Base Camp last year. Smith, a PhD student, is studying the effects of hypoxia—oxygen deprivation—on the brain.

At high altitude the brain, much like the heart and the lungs, must adapt to the reduced oxygen and this often increases its resting energy demand. While at Everest, Smith and fellow researchers noted how the brain, under stress, reacted at 5,000 metres altitude. Smith presented these findings at the International Hypoxia Symposium held in Lake Louise in February, where he won second prize, as top junior student for best oral presentation.

SENIORS Dealing with osteoarthritis pain

For Canadians who live with chronic pain associated with osteoarthritis of the knee, it may feel like they are missing out on their favourite activities. Even simple things, such as standing up or sitting down, can be excruciating. The pain experienced can be so intense and debilitating, it often leads to isolation. Having to stay indoors when the family is enjoying the great outdoors leaves sufferers feeling disconnected from doing the things they once enjoyed and the people they do them with. In an effort to relieve pain and reconnect with

their lives, it is important that people living with the discomfort of knee pain inform their doctor to determine the cause and then manage the condition. While many options are available to help alleviate pain and/or inflammation, some individuals have concerns or questions about the medications they rely on; this includes concerns about addiction, side effects and remembering to take medications on a regular basis. When considering treatments to manage OA knee pain, it’s important to speak with your healthcare provider about safe, effective and convenient treatment options to help

relieve pain and improve functionality. “An abundance of treatments are available to help reduce chronic knee pain due to osteoarthritis,” says Dr. Philip Baer, rheumatologist. “But understanding the associated risks and whether they are the right fit for one’s lifestyle is an important first step in effectively managing OA knee pain.” Follow these tips to ensure that your pain associated with OA of the knee is treated in the safest manner possible: • Know the risks associated with certain medications. For instance, opioids are a powerful pain reliever, but may be high-

ly addictive. Some serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors can provide effective pain relief and are well-tolerated. • Acetaminophen, for example, could lead to liver damage if the maximum daily dose is exceeded. • Ibuprofen, or other similar medications, could affect the protective lining of the stomach and may increase the risk of stomach ulcers. • Always read and follow the label on non-prescription and prescription medications and follow your doctor’s directions for use. • Talk to your pharmacist about any potential interactions between medications you’re taking.

You can help avert the aging process FITNESS FOR SENIORS

Bobbi Kittle feel they are on a slippery downhill slope into old age and death. They simply expect to “get old and die.” A poor outlook for the last third of your life. A deeply mistaken idea for planning your life, since, with the increasing life expectancy we now have, you will probably get old and live well into your 80s whether you are in good health or shuffling around with a walker. Lodge makes the point that 70 per cent of what you feel as aging is optional. Biological aging cannot be avoided—your hair will turn grey, gravity will take its toll, you will get wrinkles and your max-

imum heart rate will decline regardless of how active you are. But you don’t have to act or feel old. He also notes that 70 per cent of premature death is lifestyle related and can be forestalled. Our modern lifestyle with junk food, too much television watching, stress, poor sleep and little or no exercise is to be blamed. And it’s not just the older people—the effects of idleness are showing up younger and younger people too. Being sedentary is one of the most important signals for decay. Without daily exercise you are telling your body it’s time to get old, to store every bit of excess food as fat, melt off muscle,and let the joints decay. The good news is that we can override the tide of decay by changing the signals we are sending our body. The keys to overriding the decay code are daily

exercise, reasonable nutrition, emotional commitment and a real engagement with living. In working with older adults and instructing seniors’ fitness classes, I can see the difference in those who have refused to simply grow old and die. They are usually happy and positive, with a good sense of humor; involved in volunteer and social activities and also come to my fitness classes. Believe me, I am taking notes and hope to be like them as I continue an active, healthy lifestyle and prepare for the aging process. I encourage you to get moving, eat nutritionally and make the choice to live long and well.

re you aging or decaying? That is the question asked in my latest read—Younger Next Year, by Chris Crowley and Dr. Henry Lodge. The premise of the book is how to live strong, fit and sexy until you are 80 and beyond and that we have the choice to age in good health. They say there is a critical distinction between aging and decaying. Aging is inevitable and is designed to be a slow process. But decay is optional. You can actually make up your mind and tell your body you are going to live as though you are 50 and in doing so, send your body different signals that can help you to be functionally younger next year. As we age, we notice every year we are getting a little fatter, slower and weaker. Aches and pains become more noticeable and many close to age 60

UBCO gets Canada Research chair in Okanagan indigenous philosophy

A $1 million investment by the province of B.C., through the B.C. Innovation Council has been announced by Accelerate Okanagan Technology Association.

Jeannette Armstrong, an assistant professor in Indigenous Studies at the Irving K. Barber School of Arts and Sciences at UBC Okanagan, has been appointed a Canada research chair.

BCIC Acceleration Network. The network is a provincewide alliance of regional partners collaborating to deliver a structured venture growth program to technology entrepreneurs. “Accelerate Okanagan has been a proud partner of the BCIC Acceleration Network since its beginning,” Jeff Keen, Accelerate Okanagan CEO said. “This funding will be used to deliver the VAP

to high-growth technology companies across the Okanagan, accelerating the commercialization of technology and spurring the rapid growth of new ventures.” He said for tech entrepreneurs, getting to a point of sustained profitability is extremely difficult. “Our programs have been developed to support technology entrepreneurs through the early stages of

business development, reduce their risk and guide them through the challenges of growing a sustainable business. We are very pleased to benefit from the support of the provincial government through BCIC.” The impact of this support will be significant, enhancing local economic development and growing jobs in the Okanagan, B.C.’s third largest technology sector, added

Keen. Accelerate Okanagan supports the growth and acceleration of local startups and early stage companies in the gaming, animation, mobile, web, life sciences and clean energy sectors to commercialize new technologies. The Venture Acceleration Program and AO’s Jump:Start:Challenge have benefited more than 68 companies over the past 18 months, creating

172 jobs and raising more than $4 million in funding and investment capital here in the Okanagan.  Hundreds of Okanagan companies have benefited from AO’s services, events and activities in its effort to help build the technology community and local entrepreneurial eco-system, said Keen. “The power of the Venture Acceleration Program delivered by the Network’s partners is its

ability to provide technology entrepreneurs anywhere in the province, easy access to highly qualified entrepreneurial expertise and know-how in an organized and consistent manner,” said Dean Prelazzi, managing director of the BCIC Acceleration Network. “BCIC looks forward to sharing in the continued success of high-growth companies in the Okanagan region.”

egorize and analyze Okanagan Syilx oral language literature. The oral stories of the Syilx Okanagan contain a wealth of indigenous knowledge. Unfortunately, much of this knowledge is largely inaccessible. Armstrong aims to address existing barriers to research within this indigenous community by surveying, analyzing and categorizing Syilx captikwl (mythology) and

smamay (legends) from a variety of published and unpublished collections. Armstrong is analyzing Syilx traditional knowledge to obtain information about Syilx society, as well as ecological and sustainability practices, and to link Syilx story knowledge to such areas as governance, land use and health. Her analysis is being conducted in the Nsyilxcen Okanagan language and includes ap-

provals by fluent language speakers for accuracy of translations. To date, Western conventions have created a cultural blindness to indigenous methods of knowledge documentation in storytelling. As well, analysis of Syilx culture and language contexts has not been conducted using a combination of Syilx story and Western literary conventions. Armstrong’s re-

search will make the indigenous knowledge of the Syilx Okanagan accessible for the first time, and will provide planning and development support within Syilx Okanagan First Nation communities. Armstrong’s appointment brings to five the number of Canada research chairs at UBC Okanagan. Others include Philip Ainslie in cerebrovascular function in health and

disease, Heinz Bauchke in convex analysis and optimization, Susan Murch in natural products chemistry and Barbara Pesut in health, ethics and diversity. Federal minister of state for science and technology Gary Goodyear made the announcement of the new Canada research chair appointment while speaking at Western University in London, Ont.

We want to know...

“Our government is committed to attracting and retaining the world’s best and brightest researchers, supporting innovation, creating jobs, and strengthening our economy,” said Goodyear. “By investing in programs such as the Canada research chairs, we are fostering cutting-edge research and the generation of new innovations for the marketplace, which will benefit Canadians.”

Forty-six West Kelowna residents have told their stories and shared their frustrations with health care services in West Kelowna since an initial call for submissions was put out last month. But the West Kelowna Residents Association knows there are many more people than that who want to see change. Last month, the WKRA asked residents to help identify gaps and problems with existing health care services on the Westside. The residents association has agreed to gather the feedback on behalf of Joanne Konnert, the consultant hired by the District of West Kelowna to prepare a report on the proposed Westside health facility. “I think Ms. Konnert is probably expecting a larger number,” said WKRA director Ron Green. “At the last public meeting we had on the subject, we had 245 people there.” Green said the responses so far have given See Health A7

The West Kelowna teenager currently on trial for murder will finally tell her version of the events that left one of her peers dead, and turned a quiet Peachland street into a chaotic crime scene. The 18-year-old, whose name is under a publication ban, is alleged to have stabbed Ashlee Hyatt, 16, in her neck after an argument at a June 2, 2010, party. It’s a story that Crown counsel Murray Kaay assembled a number of witnesses to tell from varying angles, but defence lawyer Ingrid Friesen pointed out Friday that none of those viewpoints added up to a complete picture. “You as a jury will be the first to hear her side of the story—she wants very much to tell it,” Friesen told a B.C. Supreme Court jury Friday. “She’s been waiting two years to tell it.” The accused, who defence described as a “new girl trying to fit in at a new school,” has seen her point of view be absent in the last two weeks of trial, as even RCMP officers who dealt with the investigation failed to offer her perspective on what happened that night. What the jury has learned from teen witnesses who were there, however, is that the accused kissed a boy, while her boyfriend was nearby. This apparently upset Hyatt and the two started exchanging verbal barbs, which escalated to further pushing on the street, and eventually Hyatt was fatally wounded. Continuing on with the altercation, however, was the teenage host of the party. The defence has already suggested she was the one who brought the knife to the fight between the accused and Hyatt, and Friday two witnesses took the witness stand to highlight the teenage host’s behaviour in the aftermath and leading up to the fatal altercation. They also called upon George Young, who lives adjacent to the party house, to give testimony. Young testified he was brought into the fray when he heard a teenage boy in the street talking into his cellphone, saying, “It’s going down, it’s going down, it’s happening now.”

After taking data from both the children themselves and their parents, researchers found that measuring avoidance could also predict the future development of an anxiety disorder. It turns out that children who avoid feared situations are likely to have anxiety.

ll children experience fears as they grow up— it is simply part of the developmental process and a natural reaction to a great big world not yet understood. When children begin avoiding the things and situations that scare them, the fears can seriously interfere with participation in everyday activities. For some, normal fears about new situations or experiences can become a more serious and long-lasting problem if they develop into an anxiety disorder. It has long been thought that avoidance behaviour and anxiety disorders go hand in hand.  Now a new study out of the Mayo Clinic is confirming this when it comes to children.

There he began vigorously digging a hole, tossing plants aside as he went. A loud rap on the window sent him scurrying through the trees to the road, but the damage had been done in the garden. What if someone had come around the corner of the house and surprised that big animal? Others tell of watching as a large black bear ambled up their residential street, systematically exploring every driveway for garbage bins left out or other treats to eat, knocking over bins and laying down in the mess of trash in the road, while chewing on whatever was available.

cal fresh market but several of them grew bedding plants as well for back yard gardeners. These operations provided a comfortable living for many individual families in those days which would be virtually impossible in today’s economy. Up until natural gas was brought into the Southern Interior in the late 1950s, they were all using wood, sawdust or coal for heat. The common way to do things was to have space heaters placed throughout the greenhouse which could be stoked with wood. This is the way my dad heated most of the houses, although two were equipped with a large sawdust burner and a huge squirrel fan pushing the hot air into the greenhouse and distributed through galvanized ducts. This is the way it was done up until I was eightyears-old when the gas came in. At that time, my dad installed a 10 horsepower cyclotherm boiler, which heated three greenhouses that were 21 feet wide and 130 feet long. The heated water was

Don Burnett forced through about a mile of two inch pipe by convection. He bought the pipe from the Hedley Mine which had just recently closed down and he often recalled the story of riding up that huge mountain on a narrow road in the cab of a five-ton flatbed truck. Several loads were brought down and each 20-foot length of pipe had to be banged with a sledge hammer to clean out the caked on rust inside the pipe. He and a helper threaded the entire mile of pipe by hand and installed the system themselves. It was a lot of work and quite an expense but well worth it. Dad finally was able to sleep through the night without having to go out two or three times to stoke the wood burners. In fact until the gas came in, the greenhouses were shut down through

Helping to heal sports injuries by using acupuncture

S

ports injuries are injuries that occur in athletic activities. Some sports injuries result from accidents; others are due to poor training practices, improper equipment, lack of conditioning, or insufficient warm up and stretching. Many sports injuries can be due to overuse of a part of the body when participating in an activity. Other types of injuries can be caused by hard contact with something. Sports injuries typically involve the musculoskeletal system, which includes the muscles, bones and associated tissues like cartilage. Common sports injuries include sprains (a stretch or tear of a ligament), causing tenderness, pain, bruising,

NEEDLE NOTES

James Kaufman swelling and inflammation, or strains (a twist, pull, or tear of a muscle or tendon), causing pain, muscle spasms and weakness. Knee injuries are also very common and can range from mild to severe, from pain or tenderness at the front or side of the knee close to the knee cap, tendinitis and pain in the iliotibial band (the outer side of the knee, to bone bruises or damage to the knee cartilage or ligaments. Shin splints are another common sports in-

jury involving pain along the tibia or shin bone, typically seen in runners. Achilles tendon injuries can occur when there is tendinitis already present in the tendon or when a stretch, tear or irritation happens to the tendon. More severe can be stress fractures, which occur from repeated stress to a bone over time, most often occurring in the legs or feet and acute fractures, that can occur from a quick, one-time injury to the bone. Dislocations occur when the two bones that come together to form a joint become separated. Dislocations a usually caused by contact sports or high-impact sports. The great news is that acupuncture can be of benefit to all types of sports injuries.

ACUPUNCTURE TAPS INTO THE BODY’S OWN RESOURCES TO ENCOURAGE THE HEALING PROCESS

It is of course always best to treat an injury in the acute stage or as soon after an injury occurs as possible, in order to assist the body in healing quickly and fully. Early treatment also

helps to prevent the possibility of long-term or chronic problems with the injury down the road due to improper healing. However, acupuncture is also very beneficial in any stage of healing and can also be of great help to old, lingering injuries or injuries that did not properly heal. Acupuncture taps into the body’s own resources to encourage the healing process and the body’s optimal functioning. With sports injuries this can mean reduced inflammation, increased circulation, re-

duced muscle tension and of course, pain relief. Treating sports injuries, whether old or new, can help the body to regain former functioning and health levels and prevent more long-term consequences such as reduced mobility, stiffness, weakness, or arthritis. Our bodies have amazing abilities to self-regulate and repair themselves. In any injury the body attempts to minimize, repair and overcome the damage to its normal functions and in many cases, given adequate rest

and support, our bodies are able to recover successfully. However, in cases where the body isn’t able to correct a problem on its own, or in cases where long-term damage can occur if left untreated, acupuncture is a promising treatment that helps bolster the body’s healing abilities so that we can return to our normal, healthy selves.

SPORTS ▼ COMMITTED TO STABILITY

Sun coach brings ‘high energy’ to new job ‘‘ ‘‘ Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

If Shane Beatty has his way, the Okanagan Sun’s coaching carousel of recent years will come to a screeching halt in 2013. The Sun’s fifth head coach since 2008, Beatty said he’s ready to roll up his sleeves and commit to bringing more stability to the B.C. Football Conference club. “Football’s a game where you’re hired to get fired down the road, so you have come in here with the sense that you have to work your butt off and make things right,” said Beatty, who was introduced to the media on Monday. “I know (coaching changes) have been difficult on the kids and the organization. So we’re going to come in here with some consistency. I’ve got a great coaching staff behind me…and that makes me feel real good and satisfied with what we have going in.” A former player with the Sun, Beatty was hired as the club’s 15th head coach in December to replace Gavin Lake, who was relieved of his duties at the end of the 2012 regular season. With a self-described “high-energy, enthusiastic and organized,” coaching style, Beatty adopts a club coming off its worst on-field effort in Sun his-

tory, with a 3-7 record and a first-round exit from the playoffs. Most recently a strength and conditioning coach in Visalia, Calif., Beatty has extensive coaching and recruiting experience south of the border. Included on his resume is an NCAA coaching stint at West Virginia Tech from 2004 to 2007 and, more recently, a three-year term as the assistant director of football operations at Iowa State. In addition to bringing a blend of both coaching and recruiting experience, GM Jay Christensen said Beatty brings a heightened level of enthusiasm to the job.

FORMER Okanagan Sun player Shane Beatty has moved back to Kelowna to take over as the new head coach of the B.C. Football Conference club. “There was a different excitement level among the players I haven’t seen

for a while,” said Christensen. “That’s his biggest attribute. My biggest con-

cern was how he was going to relate to the players, the personality he’s going

to bring. One practise in, I’m sold.” Beatty, who grew up in Kamloops, was a linebacker with the Sun in 1990, an era of Okanagan football where losses were few and far between. It’s an atmosphere of winning for the orange and brown Beatty vows to work hard at restoring in 2013 and beyond. “I want to bring back those days if we can,” he said. “It’s going to take some hard work from all the coaches and myself, I’m only as good as the coaches I’m surrounded with. When I was here it was all about the kids and I want to bring that mentality back.” As for the team he inherits, Beatty is encouraged by the core of 40 to 50 returning players and has every confidence the club will be able to fill the necessary gaps with a number of quality re-

cruits. Beatty—who has been soliciting plenty of recruiting help from Sun assistants Nat Nagy, Nathan Mollard and Ben MacAulay—has already lured four of B.C.’s top high school prospects to the club’s spring camp in May. When it comes to recruiting, Christensen said Beatty has already raised the bar for the organization. “A notch above what we’ve been used to,” Christensen said of Beatty’s recruiting acumen. “He understands that part of the job is more important than the on-field stuff.” As for improving the on-field product and, ultimately, the results in 2013, Beatty said there’s no better place to start than with the basics. “We need to improve the fundamentals and once fundamentals are improved kids will get better,” he said. “There’s a good base, a good foundation to work with, and that’s what I like about this team right now.” Beatty will conduct his spring camp as head coach of the Okanagan Sun May 11 and 12 at the Apple Bowl and Parkinson practise fields. whenderson@kelownacapnews.com

Rockets forced to rally vs Seattle Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

On the heels of a record-setting 52-win regular season, it’s not a position the Kelowna Rockets wanted or expected to be in early in the Western Hockey League playoffs. Due to a pair of unlikely home-ice losses in overtime, the Rockets find themselves chasing the underdog and

seventh-seeded Seattle Thunderbirds in the Western Conference quarterfinal series. Games 3 and 4 go Tuesday and Wednesday at the ShoWare Center in Kent, Wash. The T’Birds, employing a grinding, workmanlike approach, used extra time in Games 1 and 2 to escape Kelowna with a pair of wins—5-4 on Friday and 2-1 on Satur-

day at Prospera Place. The Rockets, on the other hand, didn’t look at all like the deep and efficient club that went 31-5 at Prospera during the regular season. Head coach Ryan Huska said time is short for his team to get back to playing the style that led to a B.C. Division championship. “We’ve put ourselves in a situation we didn’t want to be in and now we have to respond,” said Huska. “Seattle played very well in the first two games and we didn’t seem to have the jump or the game that we’re used to seeing from our team. We have to be determined and be the harder working team.” With the loss of captain Colton Sissons to in-

jury for eight to 12 weeks, the Rockets are missing their emotional leader and team MVP. In Sissons’ absence, Huska said many Rockets need to be better in both the leadership and work ethic departments. “As we talked earlier, he’s a guy you’re going to miss, without a doubt,” Huska said of Sissons’ absence. “But you have to look at it as an opportunity for other guys to step up, and to provide leadership and energy. The guys aren’t happy with the way they played in the first two games, so now we need to go down there, get Game 3 and build from there.” Game 5, if necessary, will be played Saturday night at Prospera Place.

ROCKET SHOTS…

The Rockets have added affiliate players F Nick Merkley and D Joe Gatenby to the roster for the remainder of the WHL playoffs. Merkley (Calgary midget Bisons) was the club’s first-round choice of the 2012 WHL bantam draft, while Gatenby (Okanagan midget Rockets) was selected in the second round. A third AP, Justin Kirkland (Camrose, Alta.) is also with the team. whenderson @kelownacapnews.com

Ok Rockets fall just short in BCMML final Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

The Okanagan Rockets came agonizingly close to fulfilling their season-long goal of winning the B.C. Major Midget League title. In the end, it was the Vancouver Northwest Giants who were celesbrating their fifth straight yleague championship on mSunday afternoon at the Burnaby Winter Club. n The Giants edged the yRockets 1-0 in the decidping game of the best-ofothree affair, a series that could have gone either

d▼

way at any moment. Vancouver NW opened the weekend with a 3-1 victory Friday, sealing the Game 1 with an empty net goal. On Saturday, the Rockets battled back in dramatic fashion with a 4-3 win in triple overtime. Josh Blanchard scored with 58 seconds left in regulation to force extra time, setting the stage for Liam Finley who deflected home the game winner at 13:40 of the third O.T. period. On Sunday morning, with two fatigued squads going toe-to-toe,

the lone goal and game winner came on a Giants’ power play midway in the second period. While it wasn’t the desired outcome for the Rockets, GM David Michaud is no less proud of his team’s effort, both in the final and all season long. “It’s tough and pretty deflating, but at the end of the day, it’s a one-goal loss to a very good hockey team in the final game of our season,” said an Michaud. “I’m so proud of the effort and total commitment we had from all these guys. All 20 of

them are champions in my book. They never

quit, and to push a team like this to the limit like

they did, I’m incredibly proud.” The Rockets finished third in the BCMML regular season standings with a 26-6-8 record, before knocking off the Valley West Hawks in three games in the opening round of the playoffs, then sweeping the Cariboo Cougars in the league semifinal. The Okanagan club will bid farewell to three 17-year-old (1995) players who are graduating from the program—Alex Gran, Cortlen Procter and Brenden Mills. Following the series,

Rockets defenceman Gen Bryshun reflected on being part of a memorable season and playoff run. “Not a jersey I’d rather throw over my head, and logo I’d play for,” defenceman Gen Bryshun tweeted after the final game. “Would go to war with every single one of you boys every day if I could.” The Giants will now take on the Alberta champions for the right to represent the Pacific region at the Telus Cup national midget hockey finals next month in Sault Ste. Marie, Ont.

Warren Henderson .STAFF REPORTER t - Having eight days off ”in the throes of a playoff erun might not be an ideal -scenario for every hockey nteam. s But it works just fine tfor the West Kelowna Warriors—according to ehead coach Rylan Ferdster—who are using the etime to rest, heal and retload in advance of the BCHL’s Interior Confer-ence final against the dedfending champion Penticton Vees. Game 1 in the best-oftseven matchup is set for dFriday night at the South Okanagan Events Centre. “Rest is important at this - time of year,” said Ferster. “I’m not one of those coaches who looks at time off as a momentum-killer. We’ve just come through a physical series, it gives the guys a chance to take care of some bruises and get ready for the next big challenge ahead of us.” The Warriors are in recovery and preparation mode after a physical, five-game series win over the Merritt Centennials, clinching the conference semifinal with a 7-4 victory Thursday night at Royal LePage Place. West Kelowna played much of the series without David Pope and Ben Tegtmeyer, while Brett McKinnon and Mitch Nardi have yet to suit up in post-season, all due to injury. Ferster expects to have the majority of them back in the lineup for the weekend. The more hands on deck he has, the better equipped Ferster says his club will be to take on the

defending Royal Bank Cup junior A champs. “The (Vees) are the defending champs and until someone beats them, that’s who they’ll remain,” said Ferster. “We’re well aware of who they are and what they can do and we have a great deal of respect for them. We’re going from one great team (Merritt) to another great team in the playoffs. The Vees don’t have a lot of holes in their game, so we’ll have to be at the top of ours.” The Vees won six of seven regular season meetings between the clubs, which haven’t seen each other since a 2-1 Penticton victory back on Jan. 26. Game 2 of the series goes Saturday at the SOEC, with Games 3 and 4 set for Monday, April 1 and Tuesday, April 2 at Royal LePage Place.

SPORTS ▼ SPEED SKATING

Solid end to season for local speed skaters Speed skater Nicholas Goplen saved some of his best performances for the end of the 2012-13 season. Competing in the North American Single Distance Championships in Salt Lake City earlier this month, the Kelowna product finished sixth in the 1500m with a personal best time of 1:48.80, seventh in the 5000m, and 18th in the 500m with a PB of 37.03 in a field of 90 skaters from U.S., Canada, New Zealand, Finland, Taiwan and India. A few days later, Goplen competed in the Oval Finale/Canada Cup in a field of nearly 200 male skaters from Japan, U.S., Canada, Taiwan, Finland, the Netherlands, Mongolia and Norway. In the 5000, Goplen finished 15th with a new personal best time of 6:39.30. Competing in just his second 1000m of the season, he finished 22nd while shaving almost a full second to finish with

a 1.11.16. In the 500m, Goplen eclipsed the 37.0 mark with a 36.92 to finish 45th. In the 1500m, he placed 22nd with a time of 1:29.12, just shy of his personal set in Salt Lake City. “Nick had a few hiccups this season with a major cut to his ankle in October that prevented him from training on ice for more than a month,” said Okanagan regional coach and Nick’s mom, Nancy Goplen. “He maintained his fitness with off-ice training and then came on strong in early January to place fourth overall at nationals and compete for Canada at the Continental Championships. A flu set him back again so we were really pleased with the final outcome. He has never been particularly quick so he really improved his sprinting technique this season so that is very encouraging for the future.” Goplen, however, was not the only skater to race to some personal bests.

Abigail McCluskey, 16, achieved personal bests in the 500m, 1000m, 1500m, and 3000m. Her time in the 500m placed her amongst the top 10 in the under-19 age category in Canada. Her 1000m placed her in the top 20 in Canada. “Abigail is very new to the sport of speed skating, having transferred over from hockey,” said Goplen. “She commutes twice a week from Penticton to practise with the Kelowna Speed Skating Club and Okanagan Regional Training Centre. She is very passionate about speed skating and she has very supportive parents that have made it possible for her to accompany me to Calgary for long track training. Abigail has a lot of so much raw talent so it is exciting to work with her.” Emilie Medland-Marchen, 17, also competed in the Oval Finale/Canada Cup Final but was hampered by a hip injury so withdrew from most events.

KELOWNA product Nick Goplen had a strong finish to the 2012-13 speed skating season.

Para-Snowboard World Cup at Big White allows us a chance to showcase what we can do.” The Big White team has had its work cut out in building the course with all of the recent snowfall the mountain has experienced. Tom Velisek, former Canadian snowboard cross team member and past Olympian has assisted with the course design. “I am really grateful to have the opportunity to work with Big White designing the course for the national championship and Para World Cup,” said Velisek. “It allows me a chance to give back to the sport and to help advance Canadian riders on the competitive pathway. Having competed many times at Big White through my developing years as a snowboard cross racer it brings back a nostalgic feeling and reminds me why I got into snowboarding in the first place—fun. That’s my goal in course designs, to create a fun track for the riders who are coming to Big White.” For more information on this week’s event at Big White, visit www.bigwhite.com

In Memoriam

In Memory of Ephrian Arthur Day

HIGH FLIGHT Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of earth And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings; Sunward I’ve climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth Of sun-split clouds - and done a hundred things You have not dreamed of - wheeled and soared and swung High in the sunlit silence. Hov’ring there I’ve chased the shouting wind along, and slung My eager craft through footless halls of air. Up, up the long, delirious, burning blue I’ve topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace Where never lark, nor even eagle flewAnd, While with silent lifting mind I’ve trod The high untrespassed sanctity of space Put out my hand and touched the face of God. “The black knight phantom is gone but not forgotten”

E. Arthur Day’s Shanty Irish wake has been postponed until we have more food, wine & dancing girls!! Hopefully we can do it at cherry time.

KLO Middle School Attitude is everything!

Community Connection March 2013

■ Community Action Team and Eco-Leaders

Students making a difference in a big way Leadership students play an important role in creating an amazing school environment at KLO Middle School. There are two Grade 8 Leadership classes at our school, Ms. Holmes’ Community Action Team (CAT) and Mme. Hamilton’s Eco-Leaders. KLO students have demonstrated their giving spirit in many ways this year in support of CAT activities. In October, KLO staff and students brought in donations for the Kelowna Food

We hung them around tance of living in harmony and the school, and the creativity celebrating our diversity.

Assemble for success! By Nick C., CAT Leader, grade 8 This year, CAT (Community Action Team) has run five very successful school assemblies. We had an assembly once we returned from We Day. We spoke about CAT STUDENTS presented at a our We Day activities HACE assembly in November. and celebrated the success of our Halloween for Hunger Food Drive and Legion Poppy Campaign. We also ran an assembly on a HACE Day regarding Pink Shirt Day (February 27th) and the anti-bullying movement. At both of these assemblies, CAT members spoke in front of the entire school, and we showed videos about the topics that we were discussing. The excitement, after the students finished speaking in front of nearly 900 students was huge! The KLO students were a very good audience, and everyone seemed to enjoy all the videos we showed. I have enjoyed CAT this year because of all the opportunities I have had to help in the community. I have also enjoyed it because I have gotten the chance to use multiple computer programs to create posters PINK SHIRT DAY CAT Lead- and banners that have been ers presenting at. displayed at our school.

Bank. In November, more than $200 was collected for the Royal Canadian Legion. CAT students organized a Toy Drive & Turkey Dinner Campaign, in December. This year KLO students rallied together and purchased 23 new toys and donated a total of 242 gently used toys. All of the toys were donated to the Salvation Army. Our KLO community also raised money to purchase five $75 Turkey Dinners for KLO families in need. In

February, CAT organized two fund raising activities. The first was “We Create Change”. KLO students donated pennies to help provide clean drinking water in developing countries. Just $25 will provide clean drinking water for one person, for their entire life. In three days, students donated $200 in pennies! In support of Anti Bully Day, CAT students held a pink scrunchie and bake sale. Just over $300 was raised for the SPCA.

The money will be used to “green” our KLO students and staff on all your green work.

KLO Eco Club fundraises $16,400 By Daylath M. and Esme T., ECO Leaders, grade 8 $16,000 has been raised so far to restore Fascieux Creek and to build a wetland on KLO’s school grounds. Since September 2012, Mme. Hamilton’s Eco Club, the Grade 8 Eco Leaders, and the Green Parent Committee have been busy fundraising to restore Fascieux Creek, which runs through our school grounds. This project will have many benefits. Having Fascieux Creek restored, and creating a wetland would connect our students with nature. This would provide many learning opportunities for all students, both inside and outside of the science curriculum. Being in ECO LEADERS

nature can provide inspiration for art and poetry. We can also study mathematics outside, such as calculating the diameter and circumference of trees, measuring surface area and water speed. It would also cut costs for field trips, as we would not have to spend money on buses, since we would have learning opportunities right on our school grounds. A creek and a wetland would also bring wildlife back to our school ground, and help native species such as the Western Painted Turtle, which have been found nesting on the school grounds. So far, many different groups have donated money for our project. We have also received some grants. We have a total of $16,400 so far in donations and grants: $5,000 from the Central Okanagan Naturalist Club, $5,000 from the World Wildlife Fund, $1,000 from The Friends of Mission Creek and $1,500 from the Lions Club. The rest of the funding has come from KLO’s PAC. Students also participated in fundraising activities, by selling bird seed owls and our potted plants, before the Winter Break.

Jax is a very nice dog waiting for his new home …is it yours? He seems to be a very social dog who would do well in an active home. He is just getting used to walking on a leash but picking it up quickly and should have it mastered in no time. He has not been exposed to cats or children. The Border Collie breed is energetic and very intelligent and we believe Jax has those qualities. Basic obedience classes would be a bonding experience for Jax and his new family. If you already have a dog we ask that you bring him/her to the Shelter to do a meet and greet. The Staff would also be delighted to have your whole family meet this wonderful dog one-on-one.

Stella was surrendered to the shelter in order for us to find her a more suitable home. Stella is a sweet and playful 1 year old female pitty/shepherd mix. She is very confident with her good looks. She’s very affectionate and knows some basic cues and responds very well to all of them. Stella enjoys swimming, fetch and playing with other dogs during daily play groups. She prefers to be active and is always waiting on the next fun activity to come along. She is entertaining as she tries to crawl in your lap for a cuddle. We’ve lost some work time in the playground participating in a game of fetch with Stella! She would much prefer a home where she is the center of attention without cats or small animals. If you’re looking for a young, fun and committed companion to love then she is your girl!

My name is Liu Kang and I was found as a stray. I am a VERY ACTIVE, ENERGETIC, young cat who has a zest for life! I am a Siamese/Oriental cross, so if you know your Siamese, I would be a great fit for you! Due to my high level of excitability a home with older children would suit me best. Even though I am in a room with other cats I don’t always play nice with them.

ADULT AUSTRALIAN SHEPHERD CROSS NEUTERED MALE

Jazz is a very active, energetic dog who loves people and other dogs. He loves car rides but not cats! He is the type of dog who will need to burn off his energy on a daily basis. Jazz is a smart dog who wants and needs a challenge. He would be best suited for an active household. He has been described by his previous owner as a combination of friendly, affectionate, playful and also very obedient and cuddly. Jazz would probably like to go to a home where he has another canine friend to keep him company and play with him.

PUPPY BORDER COLLIE CROSS GERMAN SHEPHERD SPAYED FEMALE

Rogue came to the Shelter with his Sister, Maven. They were the last two of a large litter and the owner could not find them homes. Rogue is the larger of the two,but they both will grow to be large adult dogs. They still need to be house trained and they are both very timid They will require a lot of socialization to bring them out of their shells, but once they have bonded and know they are in a loving home, they will blossom into wonderful family pets. They have not yet been mixed with any other dogs so puppy obedience training will assist their transition to becoming a well-rounded and happy dog. Their breed mix tells us that they would develop into a great family companion. If you are interested in Rogue or Maven, please ask the Kelowna SPCA Staff to meet them.

I was found as a neighborhood stray and brought into the shelter by a kind lady once it was clear no one owned me. At first I was scared of everything but the staff worked with me to come out of my hiding place and realize people mean good things. Now I am comfortable and will meet you at the door! I love to hide under blankets for comfort. I have weight to lose after fending for myself with a ravenous appetite. I am a happy cat and will come over and ‘hop’ against your legs. I don’t mind being petted but am unsure about my head. I would do best in a quiet home with no children and an experienced family with time for me and understands my quirks. I am a staff favorite!

Nicholas is an incredibly handsome 5 year old lab mix. He is a big, strong, muscular guy looking for an experienced owner. Nicholas LOVES to hang out with people and has lots of energy to burn. When he gets excited, his whole body wiggles, from his big meatball head all the way down to his wiggly butt. Nicholas is a take charge kind of guy and wouldn’t mind living with a large tolerant dog who doesn’t mind being his sidekick, that is if you are prepared to handle two big dogs. Labs are known to exhibit “puppy-like” behaviour well into their older years, Nicholas is no exception to this. He would prefer a home without small dogs, cats or other small animals. He is a very intelligent dog and would benefit greatly from attending a basic obedience class.

PUPPY TERRIER CROSS LABRADOODLE NEUTERED MALE

Layla & Piper are young dogs found as strays and never claimed. They will need basic obedience training but we believe they will pass with ease as they are smart puppies who seem eager to please. We do recommend that they go to a home with older children only because they have not yet learned their “puppy manners” and may accidentally knock over smaller/younger children. They will also require further house training. Because of their breed they need something to do both physically and mentally if not, the breed can quickly become destructive. But they are very smart and with consistency, exercise and patience, they will become a great family dog.

I am a little on the shy side, (it took me a little while to come out of my shell) but am very quick to come over and shower you in love. My sister and I have been together our whole lives, and do wonderful together so if you are interested in two cats please consider us! Due to my shy nature I would be best in a home with no young children to stress me out. If you want a cat who loves to cuddle and bond with, look no further.

Pete is good looking and he knows it! This 3 year old American bull dog mix is a strong, healthy, muscular boy looking for an experienced owner. Pete knows basic obedience commands, such as sit, lay down, shake a paw, etc. He is a large dog who can sometimes become jumpy when he is excited, because of this we recommend that he goes to a home with no children or only children over the age of 13. Pete LOVES to play in the yard with us but also enjoys cuddle time. He doesn’t know his own size and would be happy to lie on your lap if he could. Pete doesn’t mind the company of other dogs but he is selective and would prefer to share his home with bigger dogs if needed and with a confident, experienced owner who can provide lots of fun social time.

CUISINE from Jude’s kitchen Easter sides If you have youngsters in your family an annual Easter egg hunt is pretty much mandatory, isn’t it? If not, consider adding it to the schedule, because it’s lots of fun and it gets everyone outdoors for an hour or two, running around hiding eggs if you’re an adult, or hunting for them if you’re a kid. We use the colourful plastic eggs to hold nuts and raisins and little chocolate eggs and egg cartons for each youngster to use to collect their ‘booty’ in. Do involve more than one adult in the hiding though, so if one doesn’t remember where they’ve all been hidden, there’s someone else who might. There’s nothing quite like uncovering a pink plastic Easter egg midsummer, all covered with mud and green stuff. With or without the obligatory Easter egg hunt, a ham dinner is a nice change from burger and chicken, and it makes lovely leftovers. And, if you’re vegetarian, simple add cheese to the scalloped potatoes and omit the meat dish and you’ll still enjoy the following ideas for Easter side dishes. Or, add cubes of firm tofu to the yams. Whatever you do or eat, enjoy a meal with a crowd of family and friends over the holiday weekend: Easter egg hunt optional. For more spring recipes, pick up a copy of my book, Jude’s Kitchen, which is organized by the seasons, to help you be inspired by what’s fresh and local throughout the year, along with the occasions we traditionally celebrate with festive food. It’s available at local bookstores and wine shops. Incidentally, there’s nothing quite like a dry rose wine with ham, unless it’s a nice dry bubbly, and local VQA wineries produce some excellent examples of both.

JUDIE STEEVES / CAPITAL NEWS

Scalloped Potatoes with Onions These are traditional with ham in our family, (just as ham is historically served at Easter) and I’d be in deep trouble with my family and friends if they didn’t appear alongside the ham whenever one is baked in my oven. For something a little different, you can add grated cheese, spinach or bits of peppers, chives or green onions to some of the layers. drizzle of oil 3-4 lb. (2 kg) russet potatoes 2 onions 2 tbsp. (30 ml) butter 2 tbsp. (30 ml) flour 1 1/2 c. (375 ml) milk salt and pepper, to taste Pre-heat oven to 350 F.

Lightly oil a two-quart oven-proof casserole dish. Thinly slice scrubbed potatoes and peeled onions. I don’t peel the potatoes. Cover the bottom of the casserole with a layer of thinly-sliced potatoes, followed by a layer of onions. Dot with butter and sprinkle with flour, then repeat with more layers of all four ingredients, adding a sprinkle of salt and pepper in the upper half of the dish. Pour milk over top, dot with the last of the butter, a little salt and pepper, cover and bake for about an hour or so. Once it begins to bubble, about half-way through, remove the lid so the top can brown a little. Serves 6 or so.

Ginger Garlic Pecan Roast Yams Subtly spiced, these sweet yams are a treat with the briny flavour of a smoked ham, but they’re also delicious with other roasted meats—or all by themselves. 2 lb. (1 kg) yams drizzle of olive oil 2 tbsp. (30 ml) minced ginger 2 garlic cloves 2 tbsp. (30 ml) orange juice 1/4-1/2 tsp. (1-2 ml) cayenne pinch of powdered cardamom coarsely-ground sea salt freshly-ground black pepper 1/2 c. (125 ml) pecans Pre-heat oven to 350 F.

Wash and trim ends of yams and cut into chunks for roasting. I don’t peel them. Drizzle a little olive oil into a baking pan and turn the yams about until all sides have a smear of oil on them. Mince fresh ginger and garlic. Squeeze the juice from half an orange over the yams, a couple of spoonfuls. Sprinkle them with the minced ginger, cayenne pepper, cardamom, black pepper and coarse sea salt. Roast for about 45 minutes, removing from the oven and sprinkling with minced garlic and pecans about 15 minutes before they’re ready to come out. Serves 8.

Some simple guidelines for readers of Jude's Kitchen

There are some basics about my cooking that you should know about in using the recipes created for Jude’s Kitchen. *I mean a large egg when a recipe calls for an egg *usually, butter and margarine are interchangeable *usually, salt and pepper is added to your taste *I generally use sea salt
