Escaping from the negativity and dusting out the brain cobwebs Jennifer Smith STAFF REPORTER

I

t all started with Dale Shackelly, a woman from the Nooaitch Band in Merritt, part of the Nlaka’pamux territory, who had a young friend stressed out by an exam. Many of the 1,495 aboriginal students attending Okanagan College come from areas where traditional cultural and spiritual practices are intrinsic solutions to everyday life problems and she wanted to know if anyone in the Aboriginal Centre could do a smudging ceremony. “If you do a comparison to the Bible, it’s like

if you do a prayer. It’s the same thing when you’re smudging,” said Shackelly. “It sweeps off all the negative energy when your mind gets all blocked up, sweeps out the webs.” Shackelly learned to perform a smudging ceremony as an adult. Her

family kept spiritual practices and traditions to themselves while she was in the public school system for fear she might face reprisal or ridicule. Late in her teens, she started to learn, eventually compiling enough knowledge to serve in a leadership role on the chief’s health committee. She was given a crystal for that endeavour and donated it to the college to

help others cleanse their spirit easily. One can tell when she talks about smudging that she’s very passionate about passing on what she’s learned to the next generation. “What you take (from the Earth), you return and, in the process, you lift off negativity and dust out the cobwebs,” she explained. “Nothing can be taken from the Earth. It has to be returned.” Shackelly uses beehive for those cobwebs in the brain that too much stress can create, adding a little into the buffalo sage she lights for the smudge. Other students have also brought in sweetgrass, regular sage, the

With the lit dried plants—the smudge—she faces the sun and starts her ritual by addressing all four directions: east, south, west and north. She addresses the father sky and the mother Earth, the grandfathers and grandmothers, spirit of the eagle feather and

spirit of the smudge, praying the whole time. In one hand is a feather and in the other, a small cast-iron skillet where she places the smouldering materials. Finding sage is never a problem for Shackelly as she dries her own medicinal plants and herbs, taking the cardboard flat of a 24-can tray

be performing and teaching students how to use smudge thanks to the efforts of Gail Smith, the aboriginal transitions planner at the school. Smith has developed a lesson plan around bringing traditional practices onto campus and helped grease the wheels and set up the space where smudging will be performed beneath a particularly important tree. The young evergreen is planted at the front of the school to commemorate the individual who held her job before she assumed the role. Ethan Batiste is a prime example of where students can go if they can overcome the cultural adjustment needed to stay on track, and on campus, in the first few years. Originally from the Osoyoos First Nation, Batiste was working toward a doctorate focused on indigenous studies in an interdisciplinary program at UBCO when he was killed in a traffic accident on the Westside a year ago. The first smudging ceremony was held in his honour last month at his memorial tree. Richard Jackson Jr.,

Gail Smith

James Coble

an elder with the Westbank First Nation, helped perform the ceremony to a crowd of roughly 60 people, but when the average student comes out to the space, they will be able to sit almost unnoticed with their smoking pot beside its young boughs. Aboriginal students represent about seven per cent of the population of Okanagan College and the Aboriginal Centre, where Smith and her colleague James Coble, aboriginal access and services coordinator, are situated, ensures those students have the resources to achieve their goals. “We’ve always encouraged bringing traditional knowledge onto the campus,” said Coble. “But we don’t always have the right students;

so we’re just fortunate they’re interested in doing it.” Spirituality on a public campus sits in a bit of a grey zone. Where the public school system, and the college teachings, may be void of many forms of religion, describing spiritual practice in a secular, instructional environment, there are still prayer centres and rooms where faith clubs might meet on most North American campuses. The college convocation often begins with a prayer from a member of Westbank First Nation; but for the most part, it is an environment devoid of obvious spiritual practice. As much as this approach to creating equality opens the doors for those of every faith and

spiritual tradition to learn on neutral ground, it’s at times a barrier for aboriginal students who might come from a background steeped in traditional practice. “For students who are coming from smaller communities, coming to Kelowna can be a real culture shock not seeing people like them or being a real minority,” explained Coble. There are other resources the students would like to see added to the Aboriginal Centre to assist those adjusting to this new college life. A counsellor might be an asset, Shakelly said. Smith concurs. “It’s so easy to get diverted when you’re out there promoting your culture and somebody does a personal attack,” said Smith. For now, there is at least a way to cleanse one’s self of those negative feelings. The opportunity to learn about and practice a smudging ceremony is open to any student who is interested on the campus, not just those of aboriginal ancestry. jsmith@kelownacapnews.com

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.

City hall encouraged to recognize International Talk Like Batman Day Wade Paterson STAFF REPORTER

Kelowna placed itself beside the likes of Christian Bale, George Clooney, Val Kilmer and Michael Keaton Thursday as several residents celebrated the inaugural International Talk Like Batman Day. The concept caught momentum over the last couple weeks after 99.9 Sun FM Morning Show hosts Kevin Lim and Sonia Sidhu pitched the idea to their listeners. “We realized there is basically a day for everything,” said Lim. “There’s cupcake day, grilled cheese sandwich day…” “…macaroon day, talk like a pirate day,” continued Sidhu. The pair decided they would attempt to make Kelowna the birthplace of International Talk Like Batman Day. They started an online petition, which gathered hundreds of signatures within hours, and then made an appointment with Kelowna Mayor Walter Gray. “He thought it was a great idea so he said he’d write an official proclamation so Kelowna would be the first city in the world to officially recognize April 4 as International Talk Like Batman Day,” said Lim. Sidhu said there were plenty of local partici-

Lim and Sidhu said they plan to celebrate April 4 the same way in years to come.

Boil water notice for SEKID comes early Alistair Waters ASSISTANT EDITOR

Residents of southeast Kelowna are being advised to boil their water because of increased turbidity in Hydraulic Creek. The South East Kelowna Irrigation District issued the boil water notice Thursday for its 2,100 domestic connections—an estimated 5,000 people—connected to its surface water system. The system gets its water directly from the creek. While SEKID has never had a recorded water-borne disease, Interior Health rules require boil water notices to be issued if turbidity levels in source water rise above specified points. SEKID general manager Toby Pike said there is no imminent danger as increased turbidity levels are common every spring but users of the system should boil their water as a precaution. Turbidity levels rise in the spring as snow melts at lower levels. This year, the spring run-off has started earlier than normal because of the unseason-

ably warm weather in recent days, said Pike. “It is early. Last year we did not issue a (boil water notice) until April 24,” he said. Pike said while the boil water notice is expected to last for about three to four weeks, it could run into May. The public will be notified when conditions allow the notice to be rescinded. Melting snow at lower levels increased the turbidity in Hydraulic Creek to above an average of five NTUs Wednesday and that prompted the boil water notice. NTUs are the units used to measure turbidity in ground surface water. During a boil water notice, tap water used for drinking, brushing teeth, or rinsing ready-to-eatfoods should be brought to a rolling boil for at least one minute. Owners of all public facilities must post boil water notices at all sinks or drinking water fountains accessible to the public. Alternatively, public fountains and taps may be turned off.

SATURDAYS FROM 8:00 AM TO 2:00 PM

There are many important elements to maintaining a lawn, water is one of them. An automatic sprinkler Page 1 system is the best way to deliver the water it needs. Recharging your irrigation system typically starts in April and is dependent on whether or not the frost is still in the ground. When you can get a shovel in down a full 12 inches, then you are usually good to go. Irrigation systems vary, but they are installed with the same basic principles. Following are some simple tips for starting up your system for the first time in the spring. One important thing to remember is your system was blown out in the fall with air – if you do not open the valves – air compresses – water does not. You may break something in your system if you do not open the valves before recharging your system. ✔Check all valve boxes for rodent nests and debris ✔R  e-attach any fittings removed in the fall (be sure to use teflon tape if necessary). Ensure all valves and or drains are open and water source is connected ✔S lowly open the water source valve and begin filling up the system ✔W  hen water starts coming out of the drain close the drain valve. ✔Close the other valves as the air is cleared out of the system and water starts to come out of the heads and sprinklers. Once the system is pressuriezed, run through the stations one by one, letting each station operated for two to four minutes. ✔Inspect to ensure the sprinklers are spraying properly, for leaks and any other problems. ✔S et current time and check schedule on controller unit. If you have any questions or would prefer the name of a contractor to perform the start up for you, call us or come in to see us, we are located by Bed Bath and Beyond.

There was a time when people smiled, said hello

To the editor: I remember a time when I used to walk down the street in my town where 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 the window was to wave and acknowledge a neighbour. We had community potluck suppers and dances for families—without alcohol. No, we didn’t have a wine country back then, but we had neighbours. If someone fell ill, had a baby or moved, there was help from all. It’s funny how we knew about everybody’s lives without iPods, emails or iPhones. We all worked hard, but every night we sat down at the kitchen table and had a family

Greenhouse gas leaks from Pacific Carbon Trust

T

he Pacific Carbon Trust orchestrated a months-long campaign of calls and letters to discredit a report from B.C.’s Auditor General on its first two big carbon offset projects, before it could be released. Just as the audit report was about to be made public, the trust, a Crown corporation created at taxpayer expense, participated in the leaking of selected critical letters to media outlets. Then the Speaker of the B.C. Legislature, Bill Barisoff, made a final, clumsy effort to delay the release of the report. As soon as it was out, Environment Minister Terry Lake tried to discredit it,

by blustering about all the highly paid experts who swore up and down that a forest reserve near Kootenay Lake, and a gas flaring reduction project near Fort NelTom son, were bona fide carFletcher bon offsets worth $6 million of taxpayers’ money. The audit states in plain language, with charts and timelines, that the $6 million was basically given away for nothing. I look forward to further audits on this carbon offset scheme, assuming it survives after the May election, because these two projects aren’t the only boondoggles. The Pacific Carbon Trust was set up in 2008 as part of former premier Gordon Campbell’s climate change pro-

gram. To make the B.C. government’s operations “carbon neutral,” the government and all of its agencies were required to pay the trust $25 per tonne for their carbon dioxide emissions from fuel use. In 2011 alone, B.C. universities paid $4.46 million to the trust. B.C.’s 60 school districts paid a total of $5.36 million the same year, and the province’s six health authorities paid $5.79 million. The money is supposed to go to projects that capture carbon, thus “offsetting” the heating of schools, the fuel burned by ambulances and so forth. The 55,000-hectare forest reserve is known as Darkwoods. The audit shows that the Nature Conservancy of Canada decided in 2006 to buy it, using $25 million of federal taxpayers’ money. The deal closed in 2008, the same year

the Pacific Carbon Trust was formed. From 2008 to 2010, the trust bought 450,000 tonnes of carbon offset, based on independent evaluations that all rested on the assumption that Darkwoods would be clear-cut logged. Since the forest was already owned by Canada’s leading conservancy, this assumption makes no sense. Was the conservancy going to log it, or flip it to someone who would, after accepting $25 million in tax money to acquire it? Legally, it could not. (I would add that the assumption that logging releases all of the carbon in a forest is also false. Lumber actually sequesters carbon for longer than trees, which eventually die and rot.) The audit found a similar case against EnCana’s flare reduction pro-

LETTERS ▼ THIEVERY

Trust lost, not just stuff To the editor: There is a thief amongst us. It is sad to say. This letter is not meant to ask for contribution to my loss, but to let my neighbours know that there is a thief on our streets. My loss was minimal, given that it was partly my fault. It was about one in a hundred chance. The one night I did not take my iPod out of my truck, lock my truck or turn on the outside light to deter the thieves. We had a loss of a family member and I used my iPod for distracting myself from memories while I was out shopping for groceries for our guests. I forgot to lock my truck for the first time in months. I forgot to turn on the outside light, which I religiously do, each night

before I go to bed. That one night, a thief in our neighbourhood went through both my truck and my husband’s car, which was parked in the carport. As far as I can tell, we lost two iPods with car adaptors and who knows what else. This letter is not about loss of material assets, it is about loss of trust. Today when we were out on our deck, I heard our neighbour’s teenagers swearing while they were out on their bikes and commented about how sad it is to think that it may have been them who were watching and waiting for the perfect opportunity. It may have been them, it may have been strangers wandering the neighbourhood in the dark. Nonetheless, I have lost trust in our neighbours . It is an awful feel-

ing thinking that they may come back for more, laying awake at night wondering who is out there. When my children were young and could not account for something which they brought home, I marched them back to where it came from. That is the first thing that any parent should do before it escalates into bringing home bigger things like cars, etc. It may have been an adult, who knows. Like I told the police when I reported the loss, I have no hope for retrieving my loss. But if someone out there has a change of heart, they can sneak back and leave it at the door or go to the police station.... I’m sorry to say, I am not holding my breath. Nita Grass, Glenrosa

Danger lanes To the editor: I have a complaint about the throughway lane for emergency vehicle use—there isn’t any. There used to be a center lane that went from Highway 33 to the Okanagan Lake Bridge. This lane was used for left turning vehicles and emergency vehicle use to get firetrucks, ambulances, etc. to their destinations without disrupting traffic and in a very timely manner as there weren’t many obstructions. Then somebody in their infinite wisdom decided that the center lane would be more beneficial as a flower garden and to install the lights for the highway in the center instead of on the side of the highway. This existed for quite some time and then somebody else decided to move the street lighting back to the side of the highway (where it be-

longs) but the flower gardens remained. I have not made the trip to KGH via Highway 97 in an ambulance and I shudder to think of the many people who have. It’s a pretty scary journey, I would say. I hope and pray that nobody I know has to ever endure that ride because they may not make it alive if it’s a life or death situation. I think that flower gardens belong on the roadsides not in the center of the highway. I would rather have a lane that would be available 24/7 for any emergency vehicle that needed it. It worked well when it was first implemented and I don’t see any reason why it wouldn’t work just as well now as it did then. Perhaps we need more public input before these changes are implemented. Dawn Gibson, Kelowna

Vote, not like lemmings but agents of change To the editor: Jack Bradcoe’s letter: B.C. Voters Compared To Aimless Lemmings (April 2 Capital News), is correct in one respect. We all know our mental state if we continue to do the same thing over and over and expect different results. But his solution to not vote illustrates apathy not the anger I think he feels. It is only by marking our ballot that we can indicate what our wishes are.  I have voted in every election, and that’s

quite a few of them, because I had uncles who fought a war to give me the right to do so. I very much agree that I have not always felt strongly toward the person I voted for. He or she was simply better than the alternative. At one polling station I asked how I could indicate there was no one I wished to vote for. The answer was: “spoil your ballot.” To my thinking, that put my IQ in the category of a shoe size. How difficult is it to mark an X in a box?  There are many things that can be done

instead of staying home and wringing our hands. Get involved: Talk to your MP, advocate for more openness, protest when you feel you’ve been wronged. And something I’d like to see—an extra box on the ballot which states: “None of the above,” or “I have no confidence that any of these candidates are able to govern.” Then everyone can run to the polls, not like lemmings but someone who desires change. Ken Loomes, Westbank

Surprise: That better time was not so long ago Memories from A8 dinner. It was the best time of the day. We all would talk and joke, and my dad would tease us and my mother. No, we didn’t have an extra dining room just for a special occasion, or an extra living room that no one could sit in. There were no empty bedrooms waiting for guests that

would never come. But we had love. It was a better time. It was a time when the girl next door became your wife. You loved each other, had children and grandchildren till death due us part. Now the girl next door is on a dating website. She is whatever you want her to be, or so she says. The family dinner is eaten

with everyone in separate rooms accompanied by different gadgets to occupy your attention. And to top it all off, more than 50 per cent of kids are in different homes, me raising your kids and you raising my kids. Oh yes, this year the government declared a new holiday deemed Family Day. Now we

Trust doling out our money Fletcher from A8 gram, which the company used on many wells before the trust started offering money. EnCana was saving money as well as reducing emissions without collecting offsets. Therefore, the audit concluded, neither of these projects was a credible offset because the emissions savings would have occurred anyway.

Here’s the next Pacific Carbon Trust project that should be audited. In a complicated transaction, the trust bought offsets from something called the Great Bear Carbon Credit Limited Partnership. Yes, this is the worldfamous forest on B.C.’s North Coast that was subject to a preservation deal hammered out between the Coastal First Nations, the B.C. government and

three U.S.-backed environmental groups. That was in 2006. The offset purchases were in 2009 and 2010, years after detailed preservation areas were mapped and codified in law. Again, the trust paid for forest that was already preserved. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press. tfletcher@blackpress.ca

can’t help but remember our family at least one day out of the year. Today, if I walk down the street, I am the crazy one. Someone blowing their car horn means get out of the way. If 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 at all costs, possibly dangerous and worse yet, meddlers. We get sick alone, we die alone and have joy alone—but we still have our iPhone. Good-bye to a better time, an extinct era never to return. By the way, I’m only 50 years old. Ann-Marie Jackson, Kelowna

NEWS

Luongo left hanging with no trade takers trade, he told reporters, “My contract sucks.” Gee, ya think? It certainly did not seem to suck when you signed it two years ago, Lou. It smacks of overstatement Charlie to suggest that such an asinine Hodge deal never should have taken place, but empathy is something I find hard to conjure when putting myself in Robert’s skates. Yup, if I had all that money and no longer needed to work every night for a living I’d be sad too. The bottom line is the Canucks waited until way too long to make a deal for Luongo and now will eventually have to watch the talented puck stopper move along to another club and gain very little in return. While a few heads should roll for this whole scenario, that won’t improve anything either. The significant moves the Canucks needed to make (and have needed to make for two or three years now) never happened and so once again, short of a miracle turn around, we will not see the Stanley Cup arriving in B.C. for a long time. And we mock the Maple Leafs? ••• I was quietly reminded yesterday that life truly is a journey—and one that often is much improved in its trek if accompanied by others who care. In our partaking of that journey, we are often forced to choose directions and routes along the way. Sometimes those choices are extremely difficult, or we are perhaps not armed with all of the information, knowledge, or know-how to make the best choice.

That’s where the love and help of others means a lot. It’s also where groups such as Pathways come in to play. Pathways Abilities Society, in case you missed it, is the new tag line for a long time organization in Kelowna previously known as the Kelowna and District Society for Community Living. The well known group released their new name and logo on Wednesday to the media and announced a fundraising and awareness campaign that is kicking off this week in town. Stay tuned for a lot more information on this group and its goals. Formed in 1953 in Kelowna by a group of parents, teachers, doctors and concerned citizens to ensure the education and integration of mentally handicapped children, Pathways was originally known as Sunnyvale Centre. Back in 1958, Sunnyvale had 13 students enrolled. Now, in 2013 (the group’s 60th anniversary) the organization serves more than 150 adults, 20 youth and one child with diverse abilities. I am proud to be a member of the board of directors for this great group of people. For more information contact Charise Daley at 763-4837. ••• And here is a last minute suggestion about an event tonight. The charming group known as the Dharma Dolls (singers Judy Rose, Melina Moore and Tanya Lipscomb) will be performing their diverse musical talents tonight (Friday) at the Kelowna Community Theatre. Concert starts at 8 p.m. and the show promises to be a lot of fun. Meanwhile, bluegrass fans will want to plan on attending the upcoming concert featuring the Spinney Brothers on April 12 at the Creekside Theatre in Lake Country.

hat comes around goes around, and in the case of the Vancouver Canucks and their enigma goaltender Roberto Luongo, it goes around and around and around… The long-awaited trade that had been analyzed, debated and completed in the minds of thousands of hockey fans and sports writers failed to actually take place by Wednesday, the NHL’s regular season trade deadline. After more than six months of debate, the Canucks did what they have become well known for when it comes to dealing with their star goaltender—nothing. Around the league, other clubs traded away and collected goalies (and other players) deemed of significant value in the pursuit of the NHL’s version of the Holy Grail, however, the only move the Canucks made in search for the Stanley Cup was to pick up journeyman centre Derek Roy for a minor league young defenseman. Hardly riveting and not a major move in the big picture. Meanwhile, nothing was solved with the crowded and financially cumbersome goaltending situation in Canuckville where Luongo, a three-time Vezina trophy winner, has been sent to the bench in favour of Corey Schneider. Seems the reason no one jumped on the chance to procure Luongo has something to do with dollars. He has a no-trade clause in his deal which has 10 years remaining on a 12-year contract that’s worth $64 million US. Ironically, when Luongo was asked for his thoughts on what might have prevented the

What is not clear is if something more sinister is at play— and that needs to be investigated.” Describing himself as “irate” about the situation, James called the trust “one of the biggest shell games ever perpetrated by a government in power.” “It is shameful and time that this sort of misleading activity cease,” said James.

Graeme James public sector entities for carbon offsets. According to data from the agency, a number of private companies have been selling carbon credits to Pacific Carbon Trust for prices ranging from $9 to $19 a ton. But public sector agencies, which buy offsets from the trust, have been paying $25 a ton. The trust acts as a middleman buying the credits from companies that have undertaken projects that reduce their greenhouse gas emissions and selling them to public agencies that are trying to become carbon neutral.

The aim of the program is to make B.C. a carbon neutral province through the use of credits and offsets. James, a former Kelowna city councillor, said the current controversy involving the Pacific Carbon Trust has angered thousands of B.C. residents and created what he called “even more distrust of the provincial Liberal government.” James claims Pacific Carbon Trust has redirected $50 million of public health care and education dollars—over $2.5 million out of the Okanagan region alone— to finance private industry, which, in turn, he said, funnels a portion of taxpayers’ money back to the Liberal Party as donations. Recently, B.C.’s auditor general questioned the way the trust operates. Lake has said the government is committed to carbon neutrality but is reviewing Pacific Carbon Trust.

Local grocery campaign aims to alleviate hunger Bill Gerk and Eric Falkenberg carefully arranged more than 3,500 Campbell’s soup cans Thursday at Save-On-Foods Orchard Plaza. The operations manager and assistant operations manager weren’t stocking shelves, they were preparing the display for the sixth annual Help Hunger Disappear program. Campbell Company of Canada has once again partnered with Save-On-Foods and Cooper’s Foods to help alleviate hunger in communities throughout the country. A large display featuring the word “hunger” has been built at the Save-On Foods stores in Orchard Plaza and the Mission. Customers will be offered the chance to purchase soup for donation to the Kelowna Community Food Bank until the word has disappeared. “It’s the third year we’ve built the (word) in this store…it’s a fantastic fundraiser for the food bank,” said Duncan Gardiner, assistant manager of Save-On-Foods Orchard Plaza. “People are very generous when it comes to the food bank, a lot of people realize the importance of it.” Customers will be given a coupon to save $1 if they purchase any four Campbell’s products and $1 will also be donated to Food Banks Canada for every coupon used. Help Hunger Disappear runs from April 5 to 13 this year and also involves Cooper’s Foods locations in Rutland and Glenmore. Approximately 900,000 Canadians rely on food banks and 3,500 individuals visit the Kelowna Community Food Bank each month.

▼ WHL FIRST ROUND WIN

Blazers next up after dramatic win Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

Wracked by injuries and down three games to none, the Kelowna Rockets dug deep for an unlikely comeback in their firstround Western Hockey League playoff series. Now, with little time to rest or savour their dramatic seven-game triumph over the Seattle Thunderbirds, the Rockets are in the process of reloading for their next challenge—the Kamloops Blazers. Kelowna will host the rival Blazers Satur-

day night in Game 1 of the Western Conference semifinal series. “They’re a very good team, we’ve seen them all year long and they’re a challenging team to play against,” Rockets head coach Ryan Huska said of the Blazers. “We’re going to have to regroup quickly and get ready to play them.” Injuries have taken their toll on Kelowna as the Rockets will open the second-round series with as many as seven regulars out of the lineup, including three defencemen. With a healthy roster,

the Rockets—who won 52 games and finished ahead of Kamloops to win the B.C. Division title— would have likely been a slim favourite to take down the Blazers in round two. As it is, head coach Ryan Huska said his players will once again need to find ways to overcome the odds. “I think both teams were comparable during the regular season and it showed in the games we played against them,” said Huska, whose team won four of 10 games against the Blazers, with two

losses coming in overtime. “But with the situation we find ourselves in, the injuries we have, they have to be considered the favourite. So we have to continue to believe in ourselves and play as a team like we did against Seattle.” It was just that belief that Huska said carried his club to its historical firstround come-from-behind series win over Seattle.

Not much has really taken Kyla Inaba by surprise in her first full season as a professional golfer. Just as she suspected, the 26-year-old from Kelowna has experienced her share of both ups and downs playing on the Cactus Tour. Inaba, who moved to Phoenix in early January for the winter and spring schedule, made a promising pro debut Jan. 30 with a fifth-place finish at Club West. However, in her next five events, the former UBC Thunderbirds golf team captain managed just one top-20 finish, with an 18th on Feb. 27. Then, on her latest stop on the Cactus Tour this week at Seville near Phoenix, Inaba showed signs that her game may be rounding into form with a fourth-place showing in a field of 38. After scores of 7273 the first two days, Inaba finished strong with a bogey-free 69 in round three. “Seville was my home course the previous two seasons, so I felt like I knew the course well,” said Inaba. “My caddy and I really stuck to our game. “I planned and worked hard to trust every single swing I took,” she added. “I’m coming off a bit of a slump, so I’m taking a lot of confidence into the next few weeks.”

CONTRIBUTED

KELOWNA golfer Kyla Inaba is making progress in

her first season as a professional playing on the Cactus Tour in Arizona. Despite mixed results this season, Inaba hasn’t allowed her focus or positive attitude to waver. “I know it’s my job now, it’s easy to get tunnel vision and get down on yourself when things aren’t going well, but everyday it’s getting better,” she said. “I’m still learning and trying to have as much fun as possible. (My game) is getting there. I feel like I’m close.” After a strong 2012 season, which included a win at the B.C. Mid Amateur Championship, Inaba made the decision to turn pro last fall. Making financial ends meet has, at times, been a challenge for Inaba, though a $1,000 payday this week is clearly a nice bonus. But as a foreign player without a pro athlete visa, she must turn 30 per cent of her winnings over to the U.S. government. This season her official winnings have been$1,733.33 US—minus taxes. Still, with careful spending habits and help from sponsors back in Kelowna, Inaba is finding ways to get by. “I’m living on a tight budget, trying to save as much as I can so I can

play in as many events as possible,” said Inaba, who gets assistance from local business such as Brandt’s Creek and Kelowna Periodontics. “If you think about it too much you feel the nerves and feel the pressure, so obviously I’m trying to stay as relaxed as I can and go out and play. The sponsors back home have helped me a lot.” Inaba expects bumps along the road in the early stages of her pro career, but it won’t be due to a lack of commitment or work ethic. Inaba vows to remain focused on chasing her dream of playing pro golf—first on the Symetra Tour, then ultimately on the LPGA Tour—even if the path isn’t always a quick or smooth one. “I’m a hard worker, I might occasionally take a half day off, but there’s something about knowing that so many other girls are out there grinding it out that keeps you going and motivated,” Inaba said. “I spend a lot of time on the course and in the gym making sure I’m putting what I can into it. “I love it,” she added. “I like the challenge and I’m working to get better.”

a 3-0 deficit to win a playoff series. The clincher came in dramatic style in Game 7 Wednesday at Prospera Place, as Tyson Baillie converted a cross-ice pass from Madison Bowey at D5:10 of overtime to push the Rockets to a 3-2 victory. Baillie’s winner was his third goal of the game and came after Seattle’s Luke Lockhart had scored with just seven seconds left in regulation to send the teams to an extra period for the fifth time in the series. “It’s unbelievable,” an elated Baillie said after the game. “Being down 3-0 in the series, we came back and won three hard games. Of course, this one had to go to overtime. We had the character to pull it off.” Huska said his team’s belief and resolve, even in the most desperate of moments early in the series, made the comeback possible. “We put ourselves in a bad spot by not getting off to the start we wanted in the series,” he said. “(Our players) never did lose their belief. They’re a group that has great spirit and that’s one thing, when we got our win in Game 4 you could almost sense some of our swagger coming back. And a credit to a lot of our older, injured guys, they made sure our room kept that belief.” As for Baillie, who leads the Rockets in playoff scoring with seven goals and 12 points, the 5-foot-10 centre looks forward to his team’s next challenge beginning Saturday night. “We’ve had a lot of hard battles against Kamloops this year,” Baillie said. “We just have to find a way to shut down their top scorers and we should be good.” Game 2 of the series will go Sunday at 5 p.m. at Prospera Place, with Games 3 and 4 scheduled for Kamloops on April 9 and 10.

After competing in two other CN Tour events in Ontario and Quebec, Inaba will head to Florida late in the summer for her second try at the LPGA Q-school. whenderson@kelownacapnews.com

A pair of Thompson Okanagan Football Club teams took part in the Vancouver Whitecaps Showcase Tournament last weekend, hitting the pitch in front of coaches and scouts in Vancouver. The TOFC Under-13 D boys played some tough competition and struggled to score goals in earning a tie against three losses. They suffered a 1-0 loss to Edmonton to open the event as keeper Evan Scholes was solid but the team couldn’t capitalize on its scoring chances. Against a skillful Mountain FC club, TOFC suffered a 3-0 defeat before Coastal edged TOFC 2-1. Mitch Morgan of Winfield had the lone TOFC marker, scoring on a penalty kick. In its final game, TOFC earned a 1-1 draw with Vancouver Island Wave. The TOFC U-15 boys had three ties and a loss at the tournament against some stiff competition. TOFC opened up with a 2-2 draw against Calgary South West. Jetson Gibbs opened the scoring on a brilliant solo effort when he picked up the ball about thirty yards out from goal an lobbed the ball over the Calgary keeper giving TOFC the lead. Ten minutes later Gibbs scored his second of the game when he picked up a loose ball after some great pressure by his fellow teammates and ripped a shot from

their remaining two pool games against KU U14 (3-1), and Kamloops U13 A team (4-0). This lead to a re-match with the Kam-

loops U14 team for the gold medal, with TOFC avenging their earlier loss and winning with a score of 2-0.

THE THOMPSON Okanagan U13 girls won gold at the Icebreaker Tournament last weekend in Winfield. 20 yards out past the outstretched SWU goalkeeper for a 2-0 lead. Calgary would score twice in the second half including the tying goal with about a minute to play. “It was disappointing to give up a goal that late in the game but we lost our focus for a minute or so and were punished for it. We have spent a great deal of time working on staying switched on for the whole game. I really felt sorry for the players as it was the best game they have played up to now and they deserved the win,” said TOFC coach Wayne Aasen. TOFC then suffered a 5-2 loss to Abbotsford as Peter Warshawski scored both goals for the local side. In its third game, TOFC took on the Metro Ford Spartans. After the Spartans scored the first goal TOFC midfielder Justis Jelasco (Wesbank) knocked a lovely flat corner into the opposition penalty are where is was met by Harminder Padda (Kamloops) who placed

a thumping header just under the crossbar tieing the game for a 1-1 final. In the final game of the Showcase, TOFC were once again matched against Abbotsford. The game was played back and forth with most of the play changing hands in the midfield. Both teams had several good scoring opportunities but the game ended 0-0. ••• The TOFC Under-13 Girls won the Winfield Ice Breaker tournament last weekend, playing in a very tough division that included the Kamloops U13 A team (playing U14 TOYSL), and the Kamloops U14 B team (playing U15 TOYSL). TOFC looked great, and improved every game. TOFC had a short bench with some injuries, and was helped by Kelowna United U13 girls call-ups Deziree Day and Ashley Kimler who both played very well. TOFC lost their opening game 3-2 to the Kamloops U14 A team, then went on to win

Registration is through the City of Kelowna Recreation Guide (page 31) or in person at the Parkinson Rec Centre. The program is run by volunteers from the Kelowna Crows Rugby Club. “Touch rugby is a great game played by millions of young athletes around the world,” said George Curran, coordinator of the minirugby program. “Our program gives kids a chance to learn running, passing, and team play skills with other players in their same age group. My own children are really looking forward to this year’s program.” Also at the Rec Centre this weekend is an opportunity to sign-up for the new U-13 Touch Rugby League for Grade 6 and 7 students. The seven-week league will begin May 5th and offers U-13 boys and girls an opportunity to play the sport. Registration will take place Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Parkinson Rec. “This is a new sport opportunity for Kelowna,” said Ken Boe, coordinator of the U-13 Touch Rugby League. “Young players have been playing touch in the elementary schools. This new league allows those players to continue their touch rugby development and enables players at other schools to join in the fun.” The cost for the 10 weeks of Mini-Rugby is $30, making it one of the most reasonably-priced sport opportunities in the City. The seven-week U-13 League costs only $20 per player. “Touch rugby simply needs a ball and a bunch of players to enjoy the fun,” said Curran. “We’re pleased that our rugby community can make this game available at such a great price.”

When Rosemary Thomson first met Govern General Award-winning teacher Rhonda Draper and decided to adapt her award-winning program, How Canada Came to Be, for the Okanagan Symphony Orchestra, she also enrolled her son in Draper’s school. It was 2007 and Thomson was driving down the street listening to Draper interviewed on the CBC radio program As it Happens, having just accepted her job as the conductor and music director for the OSO. Draper was describing the musical history she developed to etch a permanent blueprint of Canadian heritage in students’ brains, when Thomson noticed the teacher’s school, Glenmore Elementary, with a sign for kindergarten registration out front. “I hadn’t even moved here yet. I was driving to a friend’s when I heard Rhonda being interviewed, pulled over and registered him,” said Thomson, noting she knew just as instantly the orchestra should adapt Draper’s program for its 50th anniversary in 2010. But once the project was complete, it seemed it would need to be used again. “For an orchestral school show, it’s so based on the curriculum and whenever we can teach school subjects through the arts, it’s a win-win,” said Thomson. Today her young son is in Grade 4 and among the intermediate-level elementary school students who will help stage a return of the production, just as thousands of children across the country have done in the years since it was first created. Draper spent a year collecting the songs to go into the show, writing the story that runs along side the music as she went. “I field-tested the songs on the kids and then took note of the ones they really seemed to pick up on,” said Draper. “There are children’s songs they just pick up so quickly.” It was this stick-inyour-head factor Draper was looking for so the

WOTE loopy; Kennedy a mad genius WALK OFF THE EARTH: R.E.V.O (COLUMBIA)

Walk Off The Earth are yet another band that has been discovered via the Internet with their loopy and interesting knock offs of other peoples’ songs. WOTE have equally spoofed and celebrated the likes of B.o.B and Adele but it was their unique rendition of Goyte’s Somebody That I Used To Know that really sent the band into the stratosphere. The five members all play, tap, strum, finger etc. the parts to the Gotye hit on one acoustic guitar at the same time and the video has been viewed many millions of times on Youtube, while Gotye himself gave the group his own thumbs up. WOTE have released

SOUNDING OFF

Bruce Mitchell two indie albums but that Internet exposure got the recording labels calling and R.E.V.O. (an acronym for Realize Every Victory Outright) marks the Toronto band’s major label debut. This is a likeable blend of folk and indie pop that never gets complicated although it often addresses mature relationships with a breezy and frolicsome vibe. Often their songs feel like they are using island rhythms with arrangements that are sometimes

equally chants or singalongs. The feature song Red Hands has a military beat foiled by a Caribbean groove, while the sly Afro beat of Gang Of Rhythms could have come out of the Paul Simon songbook. My fave track, Speeches, has a playful Barenaked Ladies thrust to it while there is a communal sense to all of WOTE music. I wonder if Walk Off The Earth have heard any now obscure Poi Dog Pondering albums because that is the antecedent I sometimes hear in the mix. And oh yeah, that Gotye song is here too. B-

NIGEL KENNEDY: RECITAL (SONY CLASSICAL) Nigel Kennedy is

a restless spirit when it comes to his musical muses. He has been all over the map performing scads of classical music as well as tribute violin albums to Jimi Hendrix. Kennedy is also very prolific and this time out he is performing a classical/jazz, hybrid where he pays tribute to heroes Fats Waller (four tunes) as well as J.S. Bach. Things start off brilliantly with a campy improvisation of Waller’s Sweet & Low where Kennedy channels another hero in Stephane Grappelli for some lovely, lilting jazz violin swing. Kennedy lets his freak flag fly with a unique version of Dave Brubeck’s Take Five that has an off kilter oriental intro as Brubeck and Ravi Shan-

kar both died within days of each other and Kennedy wanted to acknowledge this. Probably the best track here is Viper’s Drag—Fats Waller’s homage to marijuana and hence the spaced out middle solo which could cause a listener an unsuspecting contact high. The Bach tunes are Bachish but I would have preferred a whole album to Waller’s music that lends itself well to Kennedy’s mad genius. This is small combo music that is marvelously efficient and you will be wondering how some of the longer tracks just seemed to slip by. A fun listen. B mooseman19@telus.net

Quirky home of Bobby Fischer, Björk and the Blue Lagoon Ellen Creager CONTRIBUTOR

es un...

REYKJAVIK, Iceland—This is the only country that gives you a bath before they send you home. The Blue Lagoon, open year-round, rain or shine, envelops thousands of tourists from all over the world in its misty embrace. Many of them come in big tourist buses on the way to the airport, which is only 15 minutes away. They leave, freshly scrubbed and silky soft, after an hour or three at Iceland’s most famous tourist attraction—and yes, it’s really blue, thanks to the silica, other minerals and beneficial algae in the geothermal springs. The Blue Lagoon, like the rest of Iceland, will be elbow-to-elbow this summer as tourism to Iceland explodes, with as many as a million tourists expected this year in a country of only 319,000 people. Iceland? It wants the tourists. It welcomes them. It needs the money to help it recover from a near national bankruptcy in 2008. So, in the Blue Lagoon there is always space for one more. Iceland, a tiny dot in the northern Atlantic, has never felt geographically closer to continental North America. That’s because Icelandair, the na-

tional airline, now flies to eight American airports, including Boston, Minneapolis and Washington, D.C. It’s just a hop and skip to get there. North Americans like it because most Icelanders speak excellent English. It’s a safe, upscale, Nordic nation with odd volcanic scenery. The dollar goes further in Iceland than it did five years ago. In summer, it’s a party place. Most visitors rush around the country trying to see everything—waterfalls, volcanoes, lava, Icelandic horses, pools. But for me, heading home from Greenland, quirky Reykjavik was more interesting than the cold and dreary March countryside. The capital city of 118,000 people dates from the 9th century. Today, it is striking for its brave adventures into architecture, good shopping, nightlife and literacy—plus its pivotal spot in world events and culture. Traveling there off-season? Here are my suggestions: Hofdi House: There’s nothing super special about this old, white stately house—except that in 1986, President Ronald Reagan and the Soviet Union’s Mikhail Gorbachev had a summit here that was a turning point in ending the Cold War. Remember the name and event, because a new film

Personally, I thought it was a blight on the landscape, but it’s part of the Icelandic soul by now, so accept it. Best view of it is from across the adjacent pond. National Museum of Iceland: My two favorite sights here were singer Bjork’s first album cover from 1977 and a chalice that dates from the 16th century made out of a coconut husk (an astonishingly rare and valuable item in Iceland back in the

day). By the way, if you take a city bus tour, you’ll pass Bjork’s all-black seaside house. “Don’t look to your left, it’s not supposed to be on the tour, but that’s Bjork’s house,” the tour guide said as the bus sped past and tourists fumbled with their cameras. Speaking of celebrities: You won’t find any obvious evidence of the famous American chess player Bobby Fischer. The National Museum owns the chess table from the 1972 world chess championship match between Fischer and Boris Spassky of the Soviet Union, but after being on display last year, it’s stuffed in a clos-

Eccentric chess master still lives in Reykjavik’s memory Iceland from A24

et somewhere, to my great disappointment. Because the eccentric Fischer lived in Reykjavik in his final years, he still lives in the memory of citizens here, many of whom encountered him lurking around town. Ask someone. They’ll likely have a story about the odd chess grand master. Shopping: All Iceland, all the time. Handmade wool sweaters. Angora socks. Delicious chocolate. Blue Lagoon cosmetics. When you buy something here, you know it’s made in Iceland. The best shops are on Laugavegur and Bankastraeti streets. Hallgrimskirkja Church: The exterior is so incredibly interesting; it’s a sweeping twosided steep staircase to the heavens. You can see this church from everywhere in Reykjavik, so you’ll never be lost. Inside, take an elevator to the top and get great city views. The church’s interior is starkly plain and starkly beautiful. Yay, Lutherans. Blue Lagoon: It truly lives up to the hype. Take your own bathing suit, Rflip-flops and robe if you have them, or rent all these things plus a tow-

through August, when the midnight sun shines and partiers congregate. Try May or September; true iconoclasts should come way off-season for low prices and quiet. Getting there: Icelandair flies from several U.S. cities to Reykjavik; from Boston and Washington Dulles it’s a 5-5 { hour flight for about $860 round-trip in the off-season or $1,100 in summer. Check package deals for flights, hotels and activities at www.icelandair.us, 800-223-5500. Getting Around: The Keflavik Airport Flybus (www.re.is/flybus) takes tourists between the airport and Reykjavik. Tour companies like Reykjavik

Stay: Most of Reykjavik’s hotels are Iceland-owned, such as Center Hotels with multiple properties in downtown Reykjavik (www.centerhotels.com). For More: www.travelnet.is or www.visiticeland.com.

A vacation in the Maritimes most spectacular in autumn CONTRIBUTOR

Canada’s Atlantic and Maritime Provinces include Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia,

Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland and Labrador. The region is loaded with history and popular tourist destinations, such as the Cabot Trail, the Bay

of Fundy, Peggy’s Cove, Anne of Green Gables homestead, Gros Morne National Park and Nostead—the ancient Viking ruins on the north shore of Newfoundland. This region’s magnificent, rugged scenery and friendly people make it a popular spot for U.S. and overseas visitors but is also a major attraction to Canadians wanting a ‘staycation’ within their own borders. Renowned for autumn colour and its cultural flare, the most popular time to tour the Maritimes region is early autumn, September through early October. Cast across a rolling landscape from Quebec east to the Maritime provinces, travellers become witness to one of the most spectacular displays of autumn colour anywhere in the world. The experience is immersing and organic. In many ways, what you’re left with is reminiscent of the faded memories so many of us have of childhood. Those moments in time we faintly remember yet are so profound they leave an ethereal feeling deep inside.

ONE OF THE most notable sightseeing attractions is in New Brunswick at Hopewell Rocks, where the formations stand between 40 and 70 feet tall. Remember the nostalic effect of a softening autumn sun on fall colour, sweet crisp morning air, and happy peaceful moments of play in the warmth of midday. Step into that moment and you get a sense of what this region will forever impress upon you. Steeped in culture and history there is no better place to learn Atlantic his-

tory. More than just local history however, this is the region that bore witness to events which ultimately gave birth of this great nation. It was here that the battles for independence between French and British armies were fought both on land and at sea. The evidence of this has been preserved in places such as the Fortifications of Québec, which

span close to 4.6 kilometers around Old Québec. Artillery Park, where characters in period costume welcome you to defensive buildings dating back to the 17th and 18th centuries, or Cape Diamond a key part of the city’s fortifications, with the star-shaped Citadel that showcases Québec’s military history. In New Brunswick the Historic Garrison District of Fredericton still carries out the famous changing of the guard, and in Nova Scotia today the beloved and historic city of Halifax was once and still is ideal for a military base, with the vast Halifax Harbour, among the largest natural harbour’s in the world. Also in Halifax sits the beautifully preserved Citadel Hill. The Citadel is a national landmark,

commemorating Halifax’s role as a key naval station in the British Empire and bringing history to life in Atlantic Canada’s largest urban centre. History is what connects a travel experience to the foundation of the culture, but it’s seeing the sights, enjoying the hardworking but light-hearted and friendly culture of the people, and of course, taking time to ‘savour the flavour’ that will leave a lasting impression on you. Think fresh lobster and fishermen’s stew as you watch fishing boats unload their catch from your harbour view table at one of the many quaint ocean front diners. For sightseeing attractions, some of the most notable begin in New Brunswick at Hopewell Rocks, which are rock formations standing between 40-70 feet tall and the Fundy National Park which showcases a rugged coastline rising up to the Acadian Highlands, the highest tides in the world, and more than 25 waterfalls. Getting there: Sunwest Tours offer a competitive and detailed tour package for the region and have offices locally in Kelowna, Vernon and Penticton. Call 1-800-667-3877 or book online at www. sunwesttours.com. More on the vacationing in the Maritimes next Friday in the Capital News Travel section.

MOTORING ▼ NEW YORK AUTO SHOW

Canadian flavour in remarks from Nissan Rob Beintema CONTRIBUTOR

Think of this spring’s New York International Auto Show as sort of the yearly swan song of the automotive show circuit. It follows major shows at Los Angeles, Detroit and Geneva with new variations of earlier unveilings, some last minute concepts and flights of fancy, along with a few debuts deliberately held back by manufacturers searching for a longer spread of media attention. There was a surprising hint of Canadian flavour in the opening remarks of Nissan’s main presenta-

tion and debuts. “You skate to where the puck is going, not to where it’s been,” said Jose Munoz, Nissan’s VP of sales & marketing. You don’t normally expect a hockey analogy when a Spanish sales manager takes to the stage with his British boss to make opening remarks about their Franco-Japanese company’s corporate philosophy. But, quoting Wayne Gretzky in front of a mixed international audience at the New York show is one more indiSee Nissan B3

Nissan defines its future as the Era of Electrification Nissan from B1 cator of how diverse the combined hierarchies of both companies have become since Nissan’s merger with Renault. And the analogy is a good way to define a corporate focus fixed solidly on a future that Nissan has defined as the Era of Electrification. Nissan is now a global leader in electric vehicle sales with more than 50,000 Leafs sold and with three more EVs in the works—the Infiniti LE, an electric NV200 commercial truck application and a coming EV city car. These make up just part of the astonishing mix of 51 new models promised by Nissan for the near future—a debut rate of one new car every six weeks from now until 2016!

There is no one solution to the energy challenges of the future, but Nissan’s broad approach includes not only electric vehicles and future fuel cell projects, but also a broad swath of hybrid alternatives to compliment regular gasoline-powered models in the lineup. There are hybrid plans across the lineup, even hints of a surprise electrification of the GT-R supercar. Which explains a next step taken with the debut of the 2014 Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid at New York. Following up on the fourth-generation 2013 Pathfinder that debuted just last year, this new Pathfinder Hybrid model promises to enhance fuel economy and reduce CO2 emissions with no reduction of driving performance, passenger roomi-

JOSE MUNOZ, Nissan Senior Vice President of Sales & Marketing for the U.S. and Canada unveils the 2014 Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid at the 2013 NewYork International Auto Show. The new Hybrid promises equivalent performance to the Pathfinder with enhanced fuel economy and reduced CO2 emissions but without compromise on passenger roominess or cargo capacity.

ness or cargo capacity. The Pathfinder’s new Hybrid powertrain option will be available in three Canadian trim levels— SV, SL and Platinum Premium—when it joins the lineup later this summer. It should be priced at around just $3,000 more than the regular Pathfinder models so, based on SV trim starting prices, it should begin at under $40K. The Pathfinder Hybrid is affordable because it matches motor and battery size For the Hybrid version, Pathfinder’s standard 3.5-litre V6 is replaced by a new supercharged 2.5-litre gasoline engine and electric motor powered by a compact Lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery. The 15 kW electric motor and gas engine combine to provide performance similar to the conventional Pathfinder. The system is rated at 250 net hp and 243 lb/ ft of torque—versus the 3.5-litre V6’s 260 hp and 240 lb/ft of torque. The Hybrid’s tow rating is slightly less—3,500 lb—but compact battery storage under the third row seat means that the Hybrid’s interior room is unchanged—same legroom, same headroom, same cargo space as the regular Pathfinder. And, with fuel economy estimated at 7.2L/100km (combined city/hwy), an improvement of 24 percent over the standard Pathfinder, the Hybrid’s same-size

DEBUTING at the 2013 NewYork International Auto Show, the 2014 Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid follows the styling of the conventional Pathfinder with a wide range of standard features including special hybrid information screens added to the Advanced Drive-Assist Display, heated steering wheel, heated and cooled front seats, heated 2nd row seats, and an advanced Bose Audio System with 13 speakers. 73-litre fuel tank, promises a driving range of over 1,000 km. At the Infiniti stand, Nissan’s premier division unveiled the new QX60 (formerly JX25) Hybrid, an even more upscale sibling to the Pathfinder that shares many of the mechanical components along with the same performance and dimensional numbers as above. Like the Pathfinder Hybrid, the QX60 Hybrid’s price bump will be about $3,000 more than the conventional model in

the same trim. The QX60 Hybrid follows up on the earlier Q70 Hybrid (currently marketed as the M Hybrid Sedan) and the announced Q50 Hybrid (a hybrid version of the former G Sedan) with striking sporty lines designed to shake up the normal placid flavour of hybrid technology and design. And this is only the beginning with Infiniti promising a hybrid version of every vehicle in its lineup within the near future.

The 911 spoils you for anything else

Jim Robinson

CONTRIBUTOR

It’s now 50 years since the first Porsche 901 (quickly changed to 911 after copyright squabbles with Peugeot) debuted and, more than 830,000 units later, it’s still causing a stir.

I can’t think of any other vehicle in the world that is immediately recognizable by just three numbers. Ferry Porsche got it right the first time, which explains in part why the basic shape remains the same. Iconic doesn’t begin to

describe the 911. Engine in the rear, deeply canted rear window, the voluptuous rear and, of course, there’s that unmistakable sound of a flat-six motor. The genius is not just in the basic design, but the way Porsche continuously has refined and distilled every moving part in that it is the same, but not the same, all at the same time. The latest model tested here is the 911 Carrera 4 and 4S. There are Coupe and Cabriolet models for both versions. The “4” stands for permanent all-wheeldrive and the S for the larger of the two “boxer” engines available. The S has wider (22 mm) rear fenders to ac-

While the Carrera 4 gets a 3.4-litre (350 hp) engine, the 4S gets the bigger 3.8 unit now producing 400 hp as standard (325 lb/ft), a figure undreamt of back in 1963. The Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) twinclutch automatic transmission is available as an option, but a new seven-speed manual is standard. The 4S coupe gets from 0-100 km/h in 4.1 seconds (Cabriolet 4.3 seconds) and a top speed of 186 mph (Cabriolet 184 mph). Fuel consumption (premium) ratings for the Carrera 4S as tested are 11.3L/100 km (25 mpg) city, 7.5L/100 km (38 mpg) highway.

MOTORING

Shifting seven gears takes a little bit of practise Porsche from A4 drive emphasis of the 911, the all-wheel drive chassis of the Carrera 4 and 4S delivers increased traction, road-holding and dynamic performance over a wide variety of road surfaces and in all weather conditions. I’ve never driven a seven-speed manual. With a very busy shift pattern (reverse a dogleg to the upper left, seventh a dogleg to the upper right), I was expecting a lot of lag between shifts what with all those cogs crammed into one space. I should have known better. Yes, the shift to seventh was a conscious heave up to the right but it was more due to my unfamiliarity than the box. Time and practise would cure all. Cruising alone at 100 km/h the tach showed a hair under 1,900 rpm but that was not the best part. When teamed with the optional Sport Chrono pack it is even more responsive than the PDK. Sport Chrono ($2,110) lets the driver select Sport and Sport Plus that changes ride height, engine mapping and suspension. There is also a little

button beside the shifter that opens up flaps in the exhaust for smoother flow. But working together in Sport Plus, the system automatically double-declutches during downshifts with a rich, deep burble. You gotta love it! Seating is perfect for the driver and the classic five-pot instrument cluster is, as I said many times, how it should be done. There is one change to the cluster and that is the addition of a new menu that informs the driver how the PTM all-wheel drive is currently distributing engine torque between the front and rear axles. But what it all comes

down to is the driving pleasure one gets from a 911—any 911. A 911 isn’t cheap. The 4S tested here starts at $120,500 but with boatloads of options plus the $1,085 shipping fee the grand total was $140,275 before taxes. Is it, or any car worth that much? When you factor in all that has gone into the 911 for 50 years you get a car that, in my experience, is the only one that, when you think it, the car does it. As someone once told me, it spoils you for anything else. In closing, this story See Porsche B6

For some two decades Rick, or Ricky the Racer as I call him, has been not just the face but the heart and soul of Porsche Can-

job at it. But times have changed. Porsche is no longer a small sportscar maker with a heart but a

major car and truck manufacturer with a bottom line. With sales up another 22 per cent last year,

the Sport Chrono package allows the driver to change chassis/suspension/engine settings and open exhaust for a more throaty sound.

Porsche Canada has decided it needs a third party with several employees to do the job of trying to please the press/media/ others and it makes some sense. For his part, Rick is not unhappy and it appears to be amicable on both sides. But Rick was always there. A fierce and redoubtable (not to mention multi-winning race driver) competitor in all things, it was always a joy to see that wry grin and the no nonsense talk. More to the point, he won my undying admiration when, in 1998 heading to Daytona for the 24hour race, he came upon an accident in his path. As far as anyone knows, it appears Rick threw himself in front of his passenger at the last second and took the whole hit. Given the last rites, he was in a coma for months. But by sheer will, he rebuilt his twisted body when no one else thought he could. I would not have had the wits to act that fast— or the courage. Typically, Rick refuses to take credit for his act. Regardless, in my book, he can do no wrong. Ricky, thanks for rides and all the laughs along the way. I enjoyed every one.

Glenn Brydon James passed away on April 2, 2013 at Pine Acres Care Home at the age of 61 years. Glenn was predeceased by his parents Harold and Mildred James, his special Aunt Connie James, who cared for him for many years; his cousin and friend Craig James; his grandparents and other aunts and uncles. He is survived by his Uncle Kent of Arizona;his James and Brydon cousins and relatives as well as his dear friends Ann, Gloria, Paul, Donna, Neil, Francis and Art.Glenn enjoyed life to the fullest. He always had a joke to tell and a song to sing. He was a firm believer in eating desert first. He loved nothing more than being out with people, talking and conniving to have that second Dilly Bar! Glenn enjoyed his last six years at White Heather Manor in Kelowna, where he received tremendous compassion and loving care. We will always be grateful for the White Heather family. Condolences may be sent to the family by visiting www.mem.com and searching his name under stories. Arrangements in care of First Memorial Funeral Services (250) 762-2299.

After a courageous three year battle with cancer, our beloved Trisha passed away at Hospice House in Kelowna on April 3, 2013. She is free of pain at last. Trisha will be forever loved and missed by her wife Richelle Chapman, daughter Alicia Quirk, mother Judy Chapman (Fred), father Dave Quirk (Marlet Magnusson), brother Kerry Quirk and nephew Riley, as well as many extended family members and friends. Trisha spent the first half of her life in White Rock and moved to Kelowna in 1992. Those fortunate enough to have spent time with Trisha often spoke of how touched they were by the experience - her strength of spirit, independence, warmth, impeccable manners and, most especially, her loving heart. These qualities epitomized who Trisha truly was on the inside. An accomplished athlete, she played competitive sports in school but her real love was downhill skiing and on the slopes she was truly gifted. The abundant love, fierce loyalty and protectiveness that she had for her family was always evident through her actions and her words. Compassion, generosity and selflessness toward those less fortunate was Trisha’s core nature and she willingly shared whatever she could with anyone in need who crossed her path. We will miss her more than words could ever convey. The family would like to extend their heartfelt appreciation for the compassionate care given to Trisha by Dr. Marianne Taylor and her team at the Interior Cancer Centre and the incredible nurses and staff at Hospice House. The knowledge, expertise and loving support from these two groups made Trisha’s journey, and ours with her, doable. Trisha dearly loved her dogs and cats and they shared her home for many years until she could no longer care for them. In lieu of flowers, should friends or family desire, donations in her name to the BC SPCA would be appreciated. We invite you to join us in celebrating Trisha’s life on Monday, April 8, 2013 at 1:00 PM at the Springfield Funeral Home, 2020 Springfield Road, Kelowna, BC And now it is our turn to say to her... “Angels on your pillow, Trisha” Condolences may be sent to the family by visiting www.springfieldfuneralhome.com, 250-860-7077.

Fend off real estate fraud

Opening up space in your home

Incidents of real estate title fraud continue to increase across Canada as homeowners and lenders are proving to be irresistible targets for fraud artists. The role of legal professionals and title insurance companies has become even more critical in the fight to detect and prevent title fraud. Homeowners and lenders can protect themselves by obtaining a title insurance policy through either First Canadian Title or Stewart Title. The coverage provided in residential title insurance policies helps protect both the innocent homeowners and lenders who might otherwise face huge financial losses resulting from title fraud. Legal ownership in property is evidenced by the title to the property being placed into your name. The government land registration records will reflect you as the owner and anyone searching those records will also recognize you as the owner. This is a typical example of real estate fraud: 1.) A fraud artist steals the identity of the legitimate owner of the property. 2.) The fraud artist sells the property to an unsuspecting purchaser who also obtains mortgage financing. 3.) The unsuspecting purchaser either moves in or attempts to move into the property. 4.) The legitimate owner is faced with defending his/her interest in the property, including evicting the unsuspecting purchaser, and having their title subject to any mortgages, the unsuspecting pur-

A sliding door can transform a room. It’s so eye-catching, so unexpected, that it invites closer looks. There are also practical reasons for choosing sliding doors. They can be larger— taller, wider and heavier—than hinged doors. They don’t require open floor space like swinging doors. But mostly, architects and designers love them for their looks. A sliding door softens a formal room, said interior designer Emily Bourgeois, who has used sliding pantry doors in designing townhouse kitchen layouts. Any door delivers a message about the space, she said. “So what’s it saying? Let’s all sit up straight? Or please feel free to put your feet on the table?” Architect Ken Pursley says a large sliding door doesn’t just create an opening in a wall— when opened, it removes the wall. And, like Bourgeois, he appreciates the look.

chaser has put on the title. Properties often targeted tend to be mortgage free and where owners have a good credit rating. This allows them to apply for a significant mortgage. Generally, the losses to homeowners can be catastrophic, forced to pay thousands of dollars in legal fees to defend their title and lenders often losing the full amount of their mortgage. Although it’s difficult to pinpoint an exact number, one association suggests that mortgage fraud amounts to $1.5 billion a year across Canada. Most lending institutions now require title insurance upon registration of a mortgage with the lawyer/notary for either purchasing or refinancing your home. This requirement is to protect the lender in the event of real estate fraud. Should you already have a mortgage in place on your home, and not have title insurance to protect yourself, it’s not too late to do so. All you have to do is contact your lawyer/notary and they will be able to help you. They will be able to explain what it covers so you fully understand the benefits of title insurance. The cost is actually inexpensive when you look at the overall protection to one of your most valued assets. We insure our life to protect our family, so why not insure our home to protect ourselves from losing that precious equity. Of Prime Interest is a collaboration of mortgage professionals Darwyn Sloat (250-718-4117) and Trish Balaberde (250-470-8324). www.kelownahomemortgages.ca

SLIDING doors bring a unique look to a room and can be larger and heavier than swinging doors without the space factor. “There is a charm to it. It ‘de-suburbanizes’ the door,” he said. For all those reasons and more, interest in sliding doors is growing. So what are the basics? For interiors, architects and designers typically use custom sliding doors built by local craftsmen or, perhaps, vintage doors. Familiar door makers

that make quality exterior sliding doors tend to be a better choice than the barn door style, which can be hard to seal tightly. Whatever the style, a sliding door needs to operate smoothly. It’s going to invite attention—and tempt people to give it a try. “It’s very important, if you’re going to use one of these doors, that you use good hardware,” Bour-

geois said. Stanley makes sliding door hardware that’s widely available. At the upper end, the German company Hafele makes sliding door hardware that’s both sculptural and sophisticated. Beverley Morgan, the sales manager for Crown Industrial, a California firm that manufactures sliding doors, says residential sales have been growing the past few years. Despite the sealing concerns, the barn door look is especially popular. In that system, the door is hung by rollers from an exposed bar across the top of the door. The exposed hardware is an important part of the look. There might be a visible track at the bottom of a sliding door, or there might be a pin on the floor that fits into a slot on the bottom of the door. And it’s important to keep heavy sliding doors from swinging and banging to the wall or door frame.

Sales slowdown places more pressure on pricing for sellers

R

ecently statistics have shown the March real estate sales numbers are following suite after a disappointing February. February reflected that sales were down across the board by 17.77 per cent. Single-family home sales were down almost 13 per cent while condominiums were experiencing a similar situation, with sales declined almost 25 per cent. For residential single-family homes for the month of March, there were only 154 sales in the Central Okanagan—that’s a drop from the previous year of 167, reflecting a de-

crease of just under eight per cent. Condominium sales plummeted a whopping 25.64 per cent from 2012—a mere 58 units sold in March compared to the 78 units last year. As the summer months are quickly approaching inventory as commonly predicted will start to climb in numbers. With sales cooling down and inventory increasing, this will toughen the race between homeowners who

wish to sell. As the March numbers reflected, our housing market is still indeed a buyers market and buyers best be aware of this. Ceinwen Less urgency to Morgan buy and a substantial number of listings continuing to spring up throughout the Okanagan, making to difficult to be a seller. For single-family homes, 477 new properties actively came onto the market in March making inventory reach 1,489 dwellings currently on

REAL ESTATE RUNDOWN

the MLS system. Condominiums continued to gradually climb reaching 778 units available. Sellers should be aware of the current market trends and should be attempting to get in front of the ‘eight ball’ and price competitively. The average sale price for single-family dwellings is down a substantial amount from this time last year, reflecting roughly a $40,000 difference from $416,363 compared to $456,568 in 2012. This cool-down isn’t just affecting the Okanagan, as the Greater Toronto area is also facing a similar situa-

tion—7,765 homes were sold over the MLS real estate website last month, compared to 9,385 last March. Vancouver also had a decline in sales by almost 20 per cent—there were 2,347 resale properties that sold in March, down from 2,874 sales a year earlier on the MLS system. Who’s to say when this coast to coast cool down will subside, but for now sellers need to have a competitive edge as buyers will continue to peruse and scrutinize every last detail. Ceinwen Morgan has worked in the Kelowna real estate industry for the past five years.
